    On Feb. 20, Kamal Abbas, Egyptian union leader and prominent figure in the Jan. 25 movement, sent a message to the “workers of Wisconsin”: “We stand with you as you stood with us.” Egyptian workers have long fought for fundamental rights denied by the U.S.-backed Hosni Mubarak regime. Kamal is right to invoke the solidarity that has long been the driving force of the labor movement worldwide, and to compare their struggles for labor rights and democracy. The two are closely intertwined. Labor movements have been in the forefront of protecting democracy and human rights and expanding their domains, a...
  • Leader of Soros-Founded Think Tank: Rich Are Ready to Flee in Case of Uprising

    News Busters ^ | January 28, 2015 | Mike Ciandella
    Rich people are preparing to flee in case of social unrest, at least according to the head of one group founded and partly funded by George Soros. Robert Johnson, the head of the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), argued that many wealthy people feared an uprising because of “growing inequality.” Liberal billionaire George Soros had given $50 million to The Institute for New Economic Thinking, and used that group in 2011 to host a conference that focused on “new multilateral system” of economics. According to an INET press release from 2012, Soros “agreed to augment his foundation support of...

    The Department of Defense has disbursed some funds to universities so that scientists might study the dynamics of civil unrest — and how the U.S. military might best respond. It’s called the “Minerva Research Initiative,” and it’s a program that was kicked off in 2008 to “improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the U.S.,” The Guardian reported. ~snip~ Those individuals targeted for questioning include political activists and members of non-governmental organizations — something that The Guardian pointed to as potential for concern. ~end snip~

Both of these models converge and as I pointed out at the Cycles of War Conference, this is the first time we have seen this convergence since the 1700s. This is no plain modern event with civil unrest erupting because of an interconnected world. These are grassroots uprisings cross-fertilized perhaps from a world contagion yet they often have similarities – corrupt governments. Turkey,...

    By the end of 2012, the New York Times published a sensational article called “Survive Societal Collapse in Suburbia”. It said Obama had already taken some steps to counter a massive civil war and incoming manifestation of totalitarianism. In these efforts he relies on a superagency – the Department of Homeland Security employing over 160 thousand people, having a budget measured in dozens of dollars and supervising the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, tax services and other government bodies. It can operate beyond the US borders, allowed to arrest and physically neutralize, it boasts the whole army...

    If Americans will trample one another just to save a few dollars on a television, what will they do when society breaks down and the survival of their families is at stake? Once in a while an event comes along that gives us a peek into what life could be like when the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is stripped away. For example, when Hurricane Sandy hit New York and New Jersey there was rampant looting and within days people were digging around in supermarket dumpsters looking for food.

    I'd say it will depend on how close it is. If Romney wins 4 or 5 states by less than 1% - a real nightmare of a possibility - my guess is there is a possibility of rioting. Both sides could see fraud and vote stealing if the election goes against them. In fact, it is almost a guarantee unless one candidate or the other pulls away decisively in the final days. There is no organized group of conservatives wedded to violence who would start a riot, but scattered incidents of mayhem would be possible. But for the moment, all...

    It didn't take long for the Internet to start buzzing with conspiracy theories after the Social Security Administration posted a notice that it was purchasing 174,000 hollow-point bullets. Why is the agency that provides benefits to retirees, disabled workers, widows and children stockpiling ammunition? Whom are they going to use it on? "It's not outlandish to suggest that the Social Security Administration is purchasing the bullets as part of preparations for civil unrest," the website Infowars.com said... ...The bullets are for Social Security's office of inspector general, which has about 295 agents who investigate Social Security fraud and other crimes,...

    The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration. The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

In Hackney, shops were attacked, and objects including chairs and pieces of wood were thrown at officers in riot gear. At one point, several people broke into the back of a stationary lorry.

The current budget deficit for the fifty (not fifty-seven) states and the District of Columbia is now $125 billion. If each affected state was able to balance their budget using state worker reductions, this would amount to 2.5 million people out of work starting July 1st , 2011. This assumes an average salary of $50,000 per worker. If we assume an average salary of $40,000, this would increase...

    In the current controversy over the 80,000-troop 'Consequence Management Response Force' that is charged in part with 'helping with civil unrest,' the hypocrisy of the Leftwing has become abundantly clear when it comes to standing armies being used against American citizens. The program was planned and the first stage was implemented under the administration of George W. Bush. At that time the program involved only one brigade of the 3rd infantry at Fort Stewart. Since 2008 the program has been expanded to include personnel from all branches of the military, far beyond Fort Stewart, and far beyond the meager 6000...

    After the election of Obama & seeing what (I believe) he is deliberately doing to the nation with the help of his cohorts, comrades & "man-puppies" in Congress...I'm starting to think in 4-5 years our nation is going to be in such distress, that we might want to move to Texas before the crap hits the fan. We live in Upstate, SC which is a conservative area but if, (Heaven forbid!), CW2 or some variation of it comes down the line, I don't see this as a good part of the nation to be in economically or militarily. Right now,...

Even the tinpot dictators in New York or New Jersey have not tried this nonsense. Where do these petty ante Major Domos come from? And how long will it take before they resign from office? Not to show my ignorance, but I thought We,The Trampled, hashed all this out after Hurricane Katrina.Wrong again I guess.

Apparently, that snowfall, coupled with limited power outages, was frightening enough that, last Friday February 5th, 2010, King Mayor Jack Warren declared a local state of emergency pursuant to North Carolina General Statute § 14-288.12. ... With the stroke of a pen, the mayor stripped them of their fundamental right to travel, to peaceably assemble, and to openly bear arms as enumerated in the North Carolina Constitution. In addition to the denial of fundamental and...
