Putin’s war vs. Ukraine and the West

The West and UK are just getting over a lengthy mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II, and saying goodbye to the longest reigning monarch in British history. The anarchists called for Repubic in the UK. Perhaps Vladimir Putin waited, as a mark of respect, before he addressed the Russian people to give them the next phase of his plans for his ‘special military operation’, i.e. war against Ukraine. It was hard to witness his drive in the streets of London in an open-topped limousine smiling, beside the Queen, some twenty years ago! Relationships with Russia have certainly soured since then. 

About that time also, 2003, there was a high-level meeting held of those of Putin’s inner circle in which there was a chance to adopt a more open democratic line, albeit Russian style, the perestroika of Mikhail Gorbachov, or alternatively follow the well-trodden path which secured the position of the favoured few within a strict authoritarian government, perhaps better termed a kleptarchy. The latter was opted for, which made the few extremely wealthy, e.g. the oligarchs who had a hold on the key state industries from the 1990s and Putin and members with upper KGB, now FSB, affiliations. Today Putin who is recently 70, is reputed to be worth some $40bn, and has an unreasonable embedded hatred of the west which isn’t going to change. It will get worse as his position is increasingly threatened.

There was a fairly recent meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), which includes China, Russia, India, Turkey and others. Putin used the occasion to put his case, as he saw it, and subsequently visited Saudi Arabia, and the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, and Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He was advised to bring the war to an end in each case. Overall, he received a cool reception.

Instead, he has dismissed that advice and chosen to illegally grab the eastern and southern flanks of Ukraine – Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson. This he has done now on paper at least, much as he stole Crimea in 2014. He has no compunction about lying; it is his way of life. He now broadcasts worldwide and holds a televised ceremony, that these four parts of Ukraine are now a part of mother Russia, and Ukraine continuing attacks on those 4 provinces would be seen as attacks on Russian soil. But he only has a self-proclaimed mandate for this and most of the world, from the UN down, included the Anarchist International AI/IFA, pronounce the move as illegal. 

However, Ukraine won’t stop its endeavours as it has slowly been taking its land back, gaining territory, particularly in Donetsk and latterly towards Kherson. They rightly believe that the land is Ukrainian and not Russian. In the past few days, the Ukrainians have been making steady progress, which has led to the pronouncement again that Russia will take all the land within the four provincial boundaries, which it has illegally claimed, as the “successful’” outcome of «the special military operation». The Russians/Putin claim it now belongs to Russia.

The Ukrainians will continue, however, and the war looks as if it will intensify, if the Russians are to try to make good on their pronouncement. The Russians have to regroup and significantly increase their numbers in order to not only halt the Ukrainian advance but to reverse the progress of the war. Their attempts to recruit prisoners, some criminal and others political, and the untrained populace to provide new troops is decidedly questionable. The population has been fleeing the country in droves. 

This is where the future with a long war beckoning becomes worrying, because Putin has more than once stated that he would use tactical nuclear weapons, against all-nation protocols that negate such a move. In trying to decide his actions-- will he or won’t he? - one has to study the man. In his boyhood, he was known to watch rats on the stairwell of his apartment and what happened to them if they became cornered. 

He may feel sometimes that the situation is becoming so serious, that he must lash out and fight, no holds barred. That may happen in the next month or two and he will feel that he must use the nuclear option and proceed accordingly. The rules of engagement will have totally changed and such an escalation will have to bring a response.  What will it be? No one knows! There is no sign yet that there is sufficient of an opposition in the Duma to bring in a leadership with some sanity. Thus the future of Ukraine and the West looks grim! By IIFOR 11.10.2022.

The Situation in 2020

JOE BIDEN 07.11.2020: "Tonight, the whole world is watching America. I believe at our best America is a beacon for the globe. And we lead not by the example of our power, but by the power of our example."
Progressives as the anarchists, i.e. liberal social-democrats, are concerned about whether there will be significant change.
The Green Global Spring (GGS) will be pressing the Biden-administration in green & real democratic direction!
SLOGANS: Less Than 1,5° C Global Warming! Drop Fossil Fuel! Green Energy! Full Employment! 5 % Green GDP growth! Small Income & Rank Differences!
Down with the Gini-index to 20 %! Liberal Social-Democracy! Real & Green Democracy! Eco-Anarchy For Ever! Sufficient High Democracy Degree! Zero Population Growth!!! Listen Joe Biden and John Kerry, the Climate Czar! For the Situation before 2020, see (click on:) http://www.anarchy.no/andebate.html.


Dear Fellow. As Election Day 2020 approaches, several crises are wreaking havoc across the country USA. The Corona-pandemic that has taken more than a million lives across the globe has triggered an economic crisis that will deepen, not resolve, in the months ahead. The consequences of  manmade global warming are manifesting more and more acutely. Political polarization continues to escalate, with protesters who are demanding racial justice facing violence both from police and white supremacists, egged on by Donald Trump. And the blows are falling hardest on Black people, others of color, women, and poor people, as they usually do.

In this election, we as always promote the “lesser evil” argument. The rationale is that Trump is just too dangerous to do anything other than vote for his Democratic Party opponent. The same case was made when the authoritarian Nixon ran, and Reagan, and the Bushes senior and junior. The nationalist-fascist Donald Trump is even more openly and crassly pushing the supremacy of the wealthy white elite than his authoritarian predecessors. It is precisely because the stakes are higher today that workers and poor folks, and the population in general, must support the Democratic Party and its significant, but not perfect, ability to solve 21st-century problems.

Substituting Biden for Trump will probably contribute to a) restore many  jobs that have been lost, b)  empower communities to hold police accountable, c) wrest stolen wealth out of the hands of the uber-rich, and d) result in the forceful and immediate action needed to check the ravages of manmade global warming. PS. 07.11.2020: JOE BIDEN IS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF USA.


Don't underestimate the threat to American democracy at this moment (Corey Brettschneider). Trump shakes the world: a deadly form of tyranny. We know that Trump will try to do anything to stay in power, to avoid that ultimate catastrophe in life – becoming a ‘loser’. There is a general logic of destruction that kicks in when the downfall of the tyrant seems nearly certain… (Judith Butler). From the Guardian.

The Fb-IJOR-Group congratulates Joe Biden and Kamela Harris for their hard-fought victory and their impending entry into the White House. This is a great day for the whole world. We congratulate American democracy which managed to shake off and oust a President who trampled on the most basic of democratic norms and still persists in futile efforts to cling to his fading power.

Putin, Xi and other strongmen haven't congratulated Biden yet. Their silence speaks volumes. President Donald Trump fired his secretary of defense, Mark Esper, via tweet... The firing of Esper is just the start of a very wild 72 days. CNN 09.11.2020. President Donald Trump's administration is so far refusing to sign off on a key document needed to formally begin the transition process while he [insanely] continues to baselessly claim election fraud and refuses to concede the race. This week, all eyes are on the Trump-appointed General Services Administration administrator, Emily W. Murphy, to recognize Joe Biden as the winner of the election and president-elect. She's the person tasked with officially affirming Biden has won the election on behalf of the Trump administration -- something Trump hasn't done himself [he has lack of reality]. CNN 10.11.2020.

Trump blocks transition as he rejects loss. The US President implied that he would continue contesting election results for at least another week, prompting increasing concern among Biden's team. Trump's Pompeo: There will be 'smooth transition to a second Trump administration'. [Is Trump & Co. planning to kill Biden?] Trump resists democracy as allies indulge him. Top Pentagon official quits day after Trump fires defense secretary.  Top prosecutor quits after Barr election fraud order. Four years ago, Obama invited Trump to the White House. Trump hasn't done the same for Biden. CNN Analysis: Here's proof Republicans are still afraid of Trump. Why Mitch McConnell won't say Trump should concede. See how Fox News changed tune on accepting election results. Saudi Arabia preferred a Trump win. Their fears of Biden may be well-founded. CNN later 10.11.2020.

CNN 11.11.2020: alarm grows over Trump's 'dictator moves' as he denies election defeat. Trump's administration looks like a tottering regime, with attacks on the military chain of command, a [Hitler's last days' type] bunker mentality and delusional claims of victory. Trump's Pentagon shake-up fuels alarm [a coming military coup to keep up the Trump-regime?].  Trump's ousting of officials could have lasting effects. Trump handling election loss like every other setback. It can't work.  'Delusional': Former national security adviser reacts to Trump's Pompeo. Melania Trump has not reached out to Jill Biden either. Senator reveals what lawmakers are privately saying about Biden's win. Biden says Trump's actions are 'an embarrassment', [this is quite an understatement]. Wall Street's harsh words to Trump. CNN Analysis:  A. Merkel's message to Biden [i.e. full support]. B. 6 lawsuits Trump is going to have to deal with when [?] he leaves office [Trump is very likely going to jail or even more likely to mental hospital, the sooner the better! Donald Trump is a) clearly psychotic with paranoid delusions that someone has stolen "his election", and b) his ultra-authoritarian gang of followers are diagnosed with similar mass-psychosis; by AISC's psychiatric experts.]

13.11.2020: CNN's Van Jones hit out at President Donald Trump for his refusal to concede the 2020 presidential election by comparing his move to the "kamikaze" mission during World War II. President Trump on Friday 13.11.2020 inched closer to acknowledging he will not be president after Jan. 20, though stopped well short of recognizing his loss. Biden begins transition plans as Trump refuses to concede. 'Most secure ever:' Trump officials contradict his ['it is stolen!'] election claims: the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement saying the November 3rd, 2020, election was the most secure election in history. President Donald Trump continues to deny the results. Earlier this week, Jones Day, a large and elite law firm that has long represented the interests of Trump, publicly distanced itself from cases where the President is contesting the popular vote or alleging voter fraud.

14.11.2020 Joe Biden, who campaigned in Georgia in October, is the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since 1992. US President-elect Joe Biden has won the state of Georgia, the BBC projects. The win solidifies Mr Biden's victory, giving him a total of 306 votes in the electoral college, the system the US uses to choose its president. President Donald Trump is projected to win North Carolina, reaching 232 votes. The results in Georgia and North Carolina were the last to be projected in the race for the White House. - Thousands of Mr. Trump's supporters protested in Washington DC on Saturday 14.11.2020. Flag-carrying demonstrators were joined by members of far-right fascist groups including the Proud Boys, some wearing helmets and bullet-proof vests. The largely peaceful demonstration saw some violence later in the evening, as Trump supporters and counter-protester, included the mainly communist Antifa, clashed in several skirmishes.  Officials said 20 people had been arrested on a variety of charges, including assault and weapons possession. One stabbing was reported. Two police officers were also injured.

CNN 15.11.2020: Trump says for the first time Biden won the election but later insists he's not conceding. "He won because the Election was Rigged," Trump said in one tweet. In another, he stood by his false belief he may be able to win the election and refused to concede, writing, "I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go." Trump's refusal to concede has heightened concerns about the US government's ability, going forward, to tackle growing Covid-19 infection rates.

Hong Kong CNN 16.11.2020: as United States President-elect Joe Biden faces an ugly, potentially contested transition, foreign policy [is still ...] on his mind. China looms as Biden's biggest foreign policy challenge. Here's where he stands: during the Democratic primaries in February, Biden referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as a "thug," and said that Beijing had to "play by the rules." A Biden campaign ad in June accused Trump of getting "played" by China. The renewed focus on China is evident in the Democratic Party platform document, which was released in August 2020. During the last presidential campaign in 2016 the document made only seven references to China. This year's version had more than 22. "Democrats will be clear, strong, and consistent in pushing back where we have profound economic, security, and human rights concerns about the actions of China's [ultra-fascist] government," the 2020 platform said. -

Biden says 'more people may die' if Trump doesn't cooperate with transition process. President-elect Joe Biden warned that President Donald Trump's unwillingness to accept the outcome of the 2020 election could hamper the incoming Biden administration's ability to rapidly distribute a coronavirus vaccine. "More people may die if we don't coordinate," Biden told reporters Monday 16.11.2020 in Delaware, in a news conference after he met with labor and business leaders and delivered a speech on the economy. Biden's comment comes as Trump [still insanely] refuses to acknowledge the reality that he lost the presidential election. According to BBC Biden called President Trump's refusal to acknowledge he lost the vote, despite calls to do so from both sides, "totally irresponsible".

Biden campaigned on a push for hundreds of billions of dollars in stimulus spending aimed at clean energy, infrastructure and what he called the "caregiving economy." He pitched that plan Monday 16.11.20020 afternoon, calling them the kinds of investments that could strengthen the United States economy and create millions of union jobs. He also said he wants a $15-per-hour minimum wage nationwide. "The road ahead, it will not be easy. But the President-elect and I are hitting the ground running," Vice President-elect Kamala Harris said. "We don't have a moment to waste!" - While a growing number of Republicans say that the formal transition process should begin, that Biden should get classified intelligence briefings and are skeptical that Trump's legal challenges will succeed, few are willing to challenge Trump's lies that the election was stolen from him, an allegation rejected by GOP and Democratic election officials across the country.

BBC 18.11.2020: US troops in Afghanistan: Republicans alarmed by withdrawal plans. Senior Republicans have voiced their alarm at US plans to withdraw some of its forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. The US is to cut its number of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq by 2,500, the US Department of Defense confirmed. President Donald Trump has long called for troops to come home [and leave Afghanistan to the ultra-fascist Taleban, with Al Qaeda and IS [Daesh] etc., and similar in Iraq]. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - usually a staunch defender of Mr Trump - called the plan "a mistake". He also warned the president against taking "any earthshaking changes in regards to defence and foreign policy" before leaving office. Mr Trump is yet to concede to Democrat Joe Biden, and the cuts are scheduled to take place five days before Mr Biden takes office on 20 January 2021. NB! The head of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, is also warning against Trump's US-troops cuts in Afghanistan. NATO is leading the fight against the ultra-fascist Taleban + Al Qaeda & IS etc.

CNN: President Donald Trump on Tuesday fired the Department of Homeland Security official who had rejected Trump's claims of widespread voter fraud. Trump announced on Twitter he was firing Chris Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and directly tied it to Krebs' statement that said there "is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised." "The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate [it was 100% true, not "inaccurate"], in that there were massive improprieties and fraud [= lies]," Trump said in a tweet that also repeated other baseless conspiracy theories about the election and was flagged by Twitter as "disputed." "Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency."

Current and former Trump officials quietly reach out to Biden team. A handful of current Trump administration officials, as well as some political appointees who left in recent months, have quietly started to reach out to members of President-elect Joe Biden's transition team, according to people briefed on the matter. The outreach is a sign that President Donald Trump's refusal to concede the election and the continued obstruction from the White House is beginning to frustrate even those affiliated with the administration. The General Services Administration still has yet to acknowledge Biden's victory and begin the formal transition. - Much of Wall Street views the Trump campaign's efforts to overturn the election results as a desperate sideshow destined to fail. But JPMorgan is telling clients there's still a chance that this process descends into chaos. Michael Cembalest, chairman of market and investment strategy at JPMorgan Asset Management, warned in a report Wednesday 18.11.2020 of the "remote risk of an American horror story" and "constitutional mayhem."

CNN 19.11.2020. Fact checking Giuliani and the Trump legal team's wild, fact-free press conference. In a wild, tangent-filled and often contentious press briefing led by President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the Trump campaign's legal team laid out its case for widespread voter fraud in the election. The roughly 90-minute briefing was overflowing with falsehoods and conspiracy theories. At no point did Trump's legal team offer any proof for their allegations of widespread fraud. - Trump tries to overturn the election he lost. Next White House chief of staff: Trump just thrashing around. Misinformation watch: Trump baselessly claims Georgia will 'flip Republican'. Georgia recount confirms Biden's victory. Georgia elections officials have repeatedly said that the statewide audit found no evidence of widespread fraud. Judges toss Republican lawsuits in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

CNN 20-23.2020. Biden's margin of victory widens as Trump's subversion efforts grow more frantic. Overturning elections sounds like the stuff of secret deals in smoke-filled rooms, but President Donald Trump's not even trying to hide his effort to subvert the results of the election as President-elect Joe Biden's margin widens to more than 6 million votes. Judge dismisses Trump campaign Pennsylvania lawsuit. A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit trying to invalidate millions of Pennsylvania mail-in votes and went on to admonish the Trump campaign lawyers. Georgia: GOP governor and secretary of state certify Biden win, quashing Trump's longshot attempt to overturn results.  Nevada: Judge denies request to halt state certification of election results. 23.11. Michigan's state board certifies Biden's win. President Donald Trump's friends and allies are increasingly doing what he will not: acknowledging the reality that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. Steve Schwarzman, a Trump confidant and Blackstone Group CEO, became the latest Trump ally to recognize Biden as President-elect and publicly signal to Trump that it is time to move on, speaking out a day after another Trump friend and adviser, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, called Trump's legal team a "national embarrassment."

24.11.2020. First on CNN: Key government agency acknowledges Biden's win and begins formal transition. The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN. The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump's defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision "out of fear or favoritism.""Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts," Murphy wrote. "I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official -- including those who work at the White House or GSA -- with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination." The letter marks Murphy's formal sign off on Biden's victory, a normally perfunctory process known as ascertainment. The move will allow the transition to officially begin, permitting current administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team, and providing millions in government funding for the transition.

The Biden team has not waited for the formal transition process to begin preparing for the presidency, as Biden announced several Cabinet picks on Monday. But the delay in ascertainment meant that Biden's team was locked out from government data and could not make contact with federal agencies, nor could it spend $6.3 million in government funding now available for the transition. A Biden official said the most urgent need was for the transition to be given access to Covid-19 data and the vaccine distribution plans. The Biden team will now have access to additional office space inside the agencies and the ability to use federal resources for background checks on Biden's White House staff appointments and Cabinet picks. READ: GSA letter to Biden stating that transition can formally begin.

Yohannes Abraham, executive director of Biden's transition, said the start of the transition was a "needed step to begin tackling the challenges facing our nation, including getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track.""This final decision is a definitive administrative action to formally begin the transition process with federal agencies," Abraham said. "In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration's efforts to hollow out government agencies." The ascertainment letter was sent Monday after Michigan formally certified its election results earlier in the day and more Trump lawsuits were dismissed. Georgia certified its razor-thin presidential results on Friday, and Pennsylvania is nearing certification of its election results, too.

It's the latest sign that Trump's conspiracy-laden legal bid, led by Rudy Giuliani, to circumvent the outcome of the election is nearing an end. The Trump campaign's lawsuits to delay certification of the election have been dismissed in multiple states, as his legal team has failed to provide any evidence of widespread voter fraud. But until now, Murphy had refused to move forward with the ascertainment process, despite Biden's clear victory. Murphy, a Trump political appointee, has faced intense scrutiny and political pressure from Democrats and, in recent days, Republicans calling for the start of a smooth transition. In a statement Monday, Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, said that "there is no evidence as of now of any widespread fraud or irregularities that would change the result in any state" and called on the transition process to begin.

BBC reports: Joe Biden's picks for the top roles in his administration have been celebrated by centrist Democrats: they speak glowingly of the diversity and experience of the individuals, a group that includes veteran foreign policy experts, and accomplished women and people of colour. Yet progressives feel cheated. They say they helped Mr Biden win, and now they have been shut out of power. These progressives say the cabinet will be filled with "Clinton and Obama retreads", as one of them puts it, describing it as a return to the "Blob", a term that Ben Rhodes, who served as Mr Obama's speechwriter, once used to describe the Washington establishment. Stephen Wertheim from the Quincy Institute, a think tank focused on foreign policy, says the new Democratic team in the White House may end up acting like the old one, a group of centrists who, he says, focused more on military threats than on issues such as climate change. He adds: "Progressives [as the anarchists, i.e. liberal social-democrats] have a right to be concerned about whether there will be significant change." Republican Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said Mr Biden had surrounded himself with "panda huggers" who would go soft on China. Florida Senator Marco Rubio tweeted: "Biden's cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools, have strong resumes, attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America's decline."-

27.11.2020. BBC reports: Donald Trump has said he will leave the White House if Joe Biden is formally confirmed as the next US president. Answering reporters' questions for the first time since losing the 3 November vote, Mr Trump insisted, however, that "this race is far from over". He has refused to concede, citing unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. Individual states are currently certifying their results, after Mr Biden was projected as the winner with an unassailable lead. The Democrat leads Mr Trump 306 votes to 232 under the electoral college system that is used to pick US presidents. The tally is far more than the 270 needed to win, and Mr Biden also leads the popular vote by more than six million.Electors will meet to formalise the result on 14 December, with Mr Biden due to be sworn in as president on 20 January.

The president and his supporters have lodged a number of legal challenges over the election, but most have been dismissed. Earlier this week, Mr Trump finally agreed to allow the formal transition to President-elect Biden's team to begin, following several weeks of uncertainty.The decision means Mr Biden is able to receive top security briefings and access key government officials and millions of dollars in funds as he prepares to take over. Why is Trump refusing to admit defeat? Following a video call with military personnel on the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, Mr Trump faced questions from reporters at the White House. Mr Trump spoke with members of the US military - at home and abroad - via video link for the Thanksgiving holiday- He was asked whether he would agree to leave the White House if he lost the electoral college vote. "Certainly I will, certainly I will and you know that," he said.  However, the president went on to say that "if they do [elect Joe Biden], they made a mistake", and suggested he may never accept defeat. "It's going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud," he said, an allegation he has stood by without offering proof. It is not a requirement for Mr Trump to concede in order for Mr Biden to be sworn in as the 46th US president.

Biden gains votes after Trump-requested recount

01.12.2020 The tensions are escalating. CNN reports: an attorney for the Trump campaign on Monday 30.11.2020 issued a call for violence against Chris Krebs, a former cybersecurity official who was unceremoniously ousted from his post by President Donald Trump after he rejected the President's unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud. Joe diGenova, an attorney for Trump's campaign, said during an appearance on "The Howie Carr Show": "Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity. That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot." - Georgia's Republican lieutenant governor on Tuesday 01.12.2020 joined a growing list of GOP officials in the state who are publicly rejecting President Donald Trump's baseless claims of voter fraud, saying the misinformation spread by the President and his allies is "alarming" and could jeopardize the party in upcoming Senate runoff elections.

03.12.2020 CNN. 'An attempt to sabotage': Trump's potential purge of career employees casts pall across federal government. Federal career employees across the Trump administration are fearful of losing their job protections and potentially their jobs, as agencies begin to implement a recent executive order signed by President Donald Trump. "This is an attempt to sabotage on their way out the door," said Richard Loeb, senior policy counsel at the American Federation of Government Employees.

Chris Cilliza reports on CNN: there have been a lot of low moments for democracy over the past four years, but none that reached quite as low as what happened on Wednesday 02.12.2020 afternoon: The release of a 46-minute rant by the President of the United States aimed at undermining the election results. I'm not going to reproduce any of the myriad lies and conspiracy theories Trump leaned on in the address, which he opened by grandiosely declaring "this may be the most important speech I've ever made," because, well, that's exactly what the outgoing President wants. He wants the media to report on what he said and, in effect, launder the lies so that they come out looking somehow new or more relevant. (And some media outlets will do just that! Conservative stations and publications will cover this speech like a legitimate presidential address, repeating the debunked junk coming out of the President's mouth like it is actually up for debate.)

What Trump is doing here has moved beyond laughable or embarrassing. It is now into the downright dangerous phase. Unlike in the days immediately following the election when the outcome was genuinely in doubt -- or even the week or so after the election was called for President-elect Joe Biden when Trump and his team had a number of lawsuits in swing states pending -- there is now zero doubt about who won on November 3 2020. The record of Trump's legal team in the many, many cases they have filed around the country would make the New York Jets blush. The chief law enforcement officer in the country has acknowledged that "to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election." The Biden transition is picking up steam. In short: This thing is all over but the shouting. There's no there there when it comes to all of the legal challenges and conspiracy theories that the President and his ever-dwindling group of loyalists are pushing...

We simply cannot allow an outgoing president to make things up about the election results without any pushback from those in his party who know he is wrong. A defensive crouch has been the default position of establishment Republicans for the last four years. And we can look around the country and see the damage done -- and the cost in human lives. Now is the time for Republicans to speak out because, if they wait much longer it will be too late. Endangering the pillars of our democracy for purely selfish reasons -- and using the prestige and power of the presidency to do it -- isn't something that can be allowed in a healthy republic. No matter how afraid of the President's Twitter feed you might be.

Hei Martin Anarkis

Takker for støtte til J-HØ i tidligere mail.

Biden kan nok være litt glemsk og han har et gammelt problem med stamming, og han får nok noe å pigge seg opp på av og til kan kanskje hende, men han er ikke dement og ca. 100% real og ærlig, og Indeco har utvekslet mailer/pressemeldinger med press@joebiden.com, teamet hans hele tiden. De amerikanske anarkistene med Chomsky i spissen har støttet Biden en masse. Trump er en stor sinnssyk lyst- og makt-løgner og blå-brun erke-konservativ representant for det uopplyste pengevelde/plutarki, og tenderer mot mørkebrun ultra-fascist som Hitler når det kommer til stykke, se http://www.anarchy.no/afbpress1.html , og http://www.anarchy.no/ija133.html, samt www.anarchy.no . Han er livsfarlig. Amerikansk psykiatri burde ta ham inn til tvangs-behandling på grunn av psykose og realitetsbrist, og årsak til farlig massepsykose hos tilhengerne. Skader andre.

Mvh. Jens HØ og Anna Q for www.indeco.no

God Jul og Godt Nyttår!

PS. Blir nok litt kamp mot «sovjetisk-kinesisk-spykiatri-systemet» utover i desember. Har blant annet fått en melding fra Christian V. med støtte, som vil bli fulgt opp. "Spykiaterne" Margrethe Stensson, Nina Helene Alnes, AnneTveito & Fylkeslegen & Co skal i hvert fall ikke dø i synden uten å få passene signifikant påskrevet.

The Georgia Trump Action (GTA) calls on all Republicans in Georgia to boycott the Senate Runoff on Jan. 5, 2021 as a protest because the election is rigged as the president election was. [But the truth is it was not rigged at all!]

(CNN) President Donald Trump expanded his extraordinary efforts to overturn the election Saturday 05.12.2020, attempting to pressure Georgia's governor to force a special session of the legislature to change the result, while using an evening rally for two GOP Senate candidates to rant about his own grievances and thrash Republican leaders who have not done his bidding. It was more evidence that the President will spend the remaining days of his presidency ignoring the deadly course of the pandemic, spreading falsehoods that amount to an attack on democracy and nursing his own grudges even if that works against the interests of his own party. The purpose of Trump's visit to Valdosta was to support Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in January's Senate runoffs that will determine control of the US Senate. Trump's relentless claims of voter fraud in Georgia have alarmed many GOP leaders who fear they may lead many Republican voters to stay home.

But in his seemingly endless narcissism, Trump found it difficult to keep the focus on Loeffler and Perdue, repeatedly turning back to his own complaints and made only passing references to the alarming rise in Covid-19 cases nationally at a rally where almost no one wore masks and there was no social distancing. He made up fantastical stories about votes in suitcases, re-litigated his election tallies in battleground states and suggested that he will be successful in reversing the November results where President-elect Joe Biden beat him with 306 electoral votes to Trump's 232. "We will still win it," he said, even though there is no means for him to do so. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud and many states have already certified their results as the vast majority of Trump's baseless legal challenges go down in defeat, meaning that he is merely trying to delay the inevitable as he fights Biden's ascent to the White House. During the Georgia speech, which included a video showcasing his fake claims about election fraud, he alternated between freewheeling lines and his teleprompter script -- doing further harm to his party by inaccurately claiming that Georgia's election system is fraudulent. NB! The voter registration deadline is Monday 07.12.2020 and early voting begins December 14.

"This election was rigged and we can't let it happen to two of the greatest, most respected people in Washington," he said, pointing to Loeffler and Perdue. "We can't let it happen again. Your governor could stop it very easily if he knew what the hell he was doing." The competing messages were on full display when Trump invited Loeffler and Perdue to the stage to make brief remarks. But the crowd seemed much more interested in the President's claims, drowning out the two candidates by chanting "Stop the steal" and "Fight for Trump!" Trump called their Democratic rivals, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff "extreme," and at one point said he understands the inclination among many of his supporters to sit out the election — "... stay at home," Trump said. There is no evidence of systematic fraud by Democrats, and Biden won Georgia by 12,000 votes. Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, said Sunday that the falsehoods Trump is spreading are hurting his party's chances in the runoff elections. "I worry that this continuous, you know, fanning of the flames around misinformation puts us in a negative position with regards to the January 5 runoff," Duncan told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday 06.12.2020 on "State of the Union." "The mountains of misinformation are not helping the process, they're only hurting it. And Jake, I worry we are handing off a playbook to the Democrats for January 5, and certainly I can't think of a worse playbook to hand off over the last four or five weeks to the Democrats." On Saturday 05.12.2020 morning, Trump continued his assault on democracy by taking the shocking step of calling Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and asking him to urge state legislators to use the Electoral College system to overturn Biden's surprise victory in the state in November...

09.12.2020. (CNN) Trump's bid to disenfranchise millions by threatening democracy going is nowhere in court. See https://edition.cnn.com/2020/12/08/politics/trump-biden-democracy-election-supreme-court/index.html.

12.12.2020. (CNN) The Supreme Court on Friday 11.12.2020 rejected a bid from Texas' attorney general -- supported by President Donald Trump -- to block the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states that went in favor of President-elect Joe Biden. The court's order, issued with no public dissents, to dismiss the challenge is the strongest indication yet that Trump has no chance of overturning election results in court, and that even the justices whom he placed there have no interest in allowing his desperate legal bids to continue. The Electoral College will convene Monday 14.12.2020 to affirm Biden's win. The lawsuit, brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a staunch Trump ally, sought to sue Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin -- which all went for Biden -- and invalidate their election results. And this week, with his options narrowing, Trump, accompanied by the support of several Republican attorneys general and GOP lawmakers, cranked up pressure to have the Supreme Court weigh in. "From a legal perspective, the fat lady has sung," said Steve Vladeck, a CNN Supreme Court analyst and University of Texas Law professor.

Mass psychosis! Thousands of supporters of Donald Trump have again taken the trip to Washington to show their support for the president's desperate psychotic attempt to reverse the election result. On Monday, US election delegates will formally appoint Joe Biden as the country's next president. Sources: NRK & AIIS.

13.12.2020 (CNN & AIIS) Several people were stabbed and 23 arrested as 'Stop the Steal' Trump-supporting protesters and counter-protesters clashed in Washington, DC. At least four people were stabbed Saturday 12.12.2020 night amid post-election protests in Washington, according to the DC Metropolitan Police Department's public affairs office. DC Fire and EMS transported eight people from the protest area since around 7 p.m.: the four stabbing victims, who were said to be in critical condition, according to DC Mayor Muriel Bowser's office; two police officers with non-life-threatening injuries and two people with minor injuries, the public information office said.

At least 23 people have been arrested during the "Stop the Steal" protests, the mayor's office said. Large groups of protesters (and counter-protesters) gathered earlier in the day outside the Supreme Court and at Freedom Plaza to protest the presidential election results. Most individuals were not wearing masks. Six people were arrested for assault on police officers, 10 were arrested for simple assault, four for riotous acts, two for crossing a police line and one for possession of a prohibited weapon -- a Taser, the mayor's office said. Videos circulating on social media showed scuffles and small fights had broken out sporadically, but the large gatherings were mostly peaceful. Members of the ultra-fascist nazi-group Proud Boys, and pro-Trump, yelled in front of a hotel during the protest on December 12, 2020 in Washington, DC. The Proud Boys is the group President Donald Trump urged to "stand back and stand by" as he refused to condemn White supremacists during a political debate this fall.

15.12.2020. (CNN) President-elect Joe Biden declared Monday 14.12.2020, hours after the Electoral College made his victory over President Donald Trump official, that "the rule of law, our Constitution and the will of the people prevailed" over Trump's efforts to undo the results of the election. "The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know nothing, not even a pandemic or an abuse of power, can extinguish that flame," Biden said. In a speech Monday night in Delaware, Biden launched the most direct and detailed defense of his victory yet -- and the harshest condemnation of Trump's failing efforts to change reality. He catalogued the failures of Trump's campaign and his allies in state and federal courts and state legislatures, and recounts that have not substantially changed vote tallies. He called efforts by Trump and his supporters to use the courts to overturn the election result "so extreme we've never seen it before."

"Thankfully, a unanimous Supreme Court immediately and completely rejected this effort," Biden said. Biden's speech came after the Electoral College had cast 306 votes for Biden and 232 for Trump, cementing Biden's win. The Electoral College votes will now be sent to Congress to be counted formally next month. Though some House Republicans have indicated they will object to the results in key states, they can do little more than delay the process during a joint session of Congress on January 6. Then, Biden will be inaugurated at noon on January 20. Biden declared its time to "turn the page, to unite, to heal."

"In this battle for the soul of America, democracy prevailed," Biden said. "We the people voted. Faith in our institutions held. The integrity of our elections remains intact. And so, now it is time to turn the page. To unite. To heal." But he also unleashed on Trump and Republicans who have attempted to thwart the democratic process in a way he had not before. Lawsuits from Trump and his allies were rejected resoundingly in state and federal courts. "And yet, none of this could stop baseless claims about the legitimacy of the results," Biden said. His harshest words were directed at Trump and his Republican allies -- including 17 state attorneys general and 126 members of Congress who backed a baseless Texas lawsuit seeking to undo other states' election results. "This legal maneuver was an effort by elected officials and one group of states to try to get the Supreme Court to wipe out the votes of more than 20 million Americans in other states and to hand the presidency to a candidate who lost the Electoral College, lost the popular vote and lost each and every one of the states whose votes they were trying to reverse. It's a position so extreme, we've never seen it before," he said.  

The President-elect, who paused throughout his remarks several times to either cough or clear his throat, called it "a position that refused to respect the will of the people, refused respect the rule of law and refused to honor our Constitution." He also condemned attacks by Trump and his supporters, who have sought to throw out legitimately cast ballots, on state and local elections officials. "It is my sincere hope we never again see anyone subjected to the kinds of threats and abuse we saw in this election. It's simply unconscionable," Biden said. He sought to move past Trump's denials of reality, pointing to record-breaking voter turnout that he said "should be celebrated, not attacked." The President-elect noted more than 81 million votes being cast in favor of himself and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, the most in history and 7 million more than Trump and Vice President Mike Pence received. Biden also noted that he won by the same electoral vote count that Trump received in 2016, saying that it was a "clear victory" then and now. The President-elect also laid out the work that will dominate the early days of his administration: the battle against the coronavirus pandemic, including distributing vaccines and slowing its spread as those vaccines become available, and rebuilding an economy battered by the pandemic.

22.12.2020. (CNN) Trump threatens 30-day reign of destruction on the way out of office. Joe Biden will be president in 30 days. Until then, the question is how much damage can be done by a vengeful, delusional soon-to-be ex-President swilling conspiracy theories, whose wild anti-democratic instincts are being encouraged by fringe political opportunists. Donald Trump will retain the awesome powers of the presidency until noon on January 20, and there's never been a time when he has been subject to as few restraining influences or has had a bigger incentive to cause disruption. The President is spending day after day in his White House bunker, entertaining crackpot theories about imposing martial law, seizing voting machines and staging an intervention in Congress on January 6 to steal the election from Biden. Surrounded by the last dead-end loyalists, Trump is flinging lies and political venom like King Lear in a crumbling Twitter kingdom, alarming some staffers about what he will do next. On Monday 21.12.2020, he huddled with a cabal of Republican lawmakers who plan to challenge the election on baseless claims of fraud at a special session of Congress to ratify the results on January 6. There is concern among executive office staff and the military's leadership that Trump could use his power as President and commander in chief in dangerous ways in the last days of his term. "We don't know what he might do," one officer in the Pentagon said. Another added: "We are in strange times."

26.12.2020. Ochlarchy including chaos in USA. First there were the gunshots that startled residents awake in a downtown Nashville community on Christmas morning. When people looked out their windows a little before dawn, they saw an old, white motor home parked on their street. Then the sound of a woman's voice started emanating from the recreational vehicle, with a warning. There was a bomb that was going to go off in 15 minutes. When the RV exploded, it shattered windows and sent flaming pieces of debris through the air, damaging several buildings. Update by the Anarchist Federation 25.12.2020: “The AF condemns the Nashville USA RV car bomb terrorist attack. Of course no anarchists were behind the attack.” The terrorist attack was - and made - ochlarchy (mob rule broadly defined) including chaos. - Though Congress has passed a $900 billion Covid relief package, millions of Americans are in danger of losing important benefits just after the holidays if President Donald Trump continues to refuse to sign the bill. If these key programs lapse, payments would end for more than 12 million Americans, according to an analysis by The Century Foundation, making more ochlarchy (mob rule broadly defined), including chaos. Trump has promised a lot more money to the unemployed People, but that is a only a “pie in the sky”, that will contribute even more to the ochlarchy, including chaos. Will there be a call for the “strong man” Trump later? Sources: CNN & AIIS.

27.12.2020 (CNN) - Investigators looking into the Christmas morning explosion in Nashville 25.12.2020 now believe the blast was likely the result of a suicide bombing, according to two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation. Officials have previously said they have recovered human remains at the scene of the bombing in downtown Nashville and an FBI official on Saturday 26.12.2020 said agents are not looking for another suspect. Three people were killed and three wounded in a shooting on Saturday 26.12.2020 at a bowling alley in Rockford, Illinois, and a suspect is in custody, according to police. Authorities have identified Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, of Antioch, Tennessee, as the Nashville bomber after matching his DNA to remains found at the scene of the explosion. There is no indication that anybody else was involved, [but it could be...] said Douglas Korneski, FBI special agent in charge of the Memphis field office, at the news conference. A vehicle ID number from the RV was also a match for Warner.

28.12.2020. (CNN) - Trump signs coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law after lengthy delay. President Donald Trump signed the massive $2.3 trillion dollar coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law Sunday 27.12.2020 night, averting a government shutdown that was set to begin on Tuesday 29.12.2020, and extending billions of dollars in coronavirus aid to millions. Trump's signature of the $900 billion Covid relief package extends unemployment benefits for millions of jobless gig-workers and independent contractors, as well as the long-term unemployed. The estimated 12 million people in two key pandemic unemployment programs, who were facing their last payment this weekend, will now receive benefits for another 11 weeks. Plus, all those collecting jobless payments will receive a $300 weekly federal boost through mid-March. - Chess mate, Trump! (AISC).

Brown Cards to NRK with Tove Bjørgås, BBC and CNN for mixing up ochlarchy including chaos with anarchy 06-07.01.2021 and falsely putting the blame on the Washington riot partly on anarchists.

Brown Cards to NRK with Tove Bjørgås, BBC and CNN for mixing up ochlarchy including chaos with anarchy 06-07.01.2021 and falsely putting the blame on the Washington riot partly on anarchists, i.e. for serious break of the Oslo Convention. The rioters were the nazi & ultra-fascist Donald Trump supporters, and no anarchist participated in the coup attempt and attack on democratic institutions. Anarchy is not ochlarchy including chaos, but real democracy, i.e. liberal social democracy. And anarchists are real democrats, i.e. liberal social democrats, not ultra-fascists or totalitarian extremists to the left and right on the economic-political map and in reality.

Anarchy and anarchism mean "system and management without ruler(s), i.e. co-operation without repression, tyranny and slavery". In short an-arch-y = [(an = without - arch = ruler(s)) - y = system (included optimal order and law) and management, as, say, in monarch-y]. Anarchy and anarchism are efficient and fair system and management without top heavy societal pyramid economical and/or political/administrative - in income and/or rank, i.e. significant horizontal organization - real, always including green, democracy, liberal social democracy.

Kasich continues to put the blame for the Republican nazi & ultra-fascist coup attempt and riots in Washington USA 06.01.2021 on anarchists, stating "the anarchists who crashed into the Capital" with Don Lemon at CNN, and the IAT-APT hands out a Dark Brown Card to them all.

Orwellian "1984" newspeak - om manipulering av språket, semantikk, lingvistikk, navn og begreper og realiteter = hard facts. Psykologisk krigføring.

Translation tool Norwegian to English, French, German, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Chinese etc., and vice versa: Google Translate.

Økosirken, lovene om den økonomiske sirkulasjon, gjelder som Frisch sa «absolutt sikkert» i en viss forstand, nemlig i at den på konsistente data gir 100% regresjon, 0 % avvik. Altså statistisk absolutt sikkert. Men statistikk kan som sagt av mange lyve. For det første er økosirken basert på prinsippet om dobbelt bokholderi, den er ikke forutsetningsløs, som Haavelmo påpekte. B. D. Brochmann drev med økosirk basert på enkel bokføring. Men økosirken, den er også basert på fysikk. Eksport på verdensplan må være fysisk lik import, når en ser bort fra eller tar med lekkasjer til outer space i regnskapet, samme for en del annet. Dette er absolutt sikkert, forutsatt at man regner i energi, ikke masse. Energi kan absolutt sikkert ikke forsvinne i løse luften. Men så var det dette med selve postene i økosirken.

Her regnet Frisch med systemets kostnader, som er et hard facts – realitet, og fortjener å være et eget begrep i regnskapet. Men min slektning Odd Aukrust fjernet det, og lot systemkostnadene (de offentlige) inngå i «offentlig konsum» som er et nytale-type begrep: «Kostnad = nytte». Der en kostnad, dvs. ulempe for folk, inngår i konsumbegrepet = nytte for folk (konsumentene), dvs. en variant av at «krig = fred» og «anarki = kaos» i beste Orwellske stil. Altså en selvmotsigelse: «kostnad = nytte». Da blir de offentlige byråkratene glade, for jo mer vi har av dem, og jo mer de koster reelt, jo gladere blir Folket, eller Populasjonen (som er en løgn). I følge denne galskapen og manipulasjonen av språket og også vitenskapen. Systemets kostnad må inn igjen for å få en realistisk, og dermed mer sann og vitenskapelig sikker og holdbar sammenheng, i nasjonalregnskap og økosirk. Offentlig konsum må forbeholdes reelle nytte, overhodet ikke samfunnsmessige kostnader.

Nasjonalregnskap og økosirk, dette er for øvrig ikke det samme. Økosirk er også fysiske vare og tjenestestrømmer/sirkulasjon, uavhengig av regnskapstriks og konvensjoner i nasjonalregnskapet. Frisch drev stort sett med økosirk, den økonomiske sirkulasjon fysisk, mens nasjonalregnskap i prinsippet er noe annet. Regnskaper behøver som kjent ikke dekke realiteter, men bør gjøre det, skal de være nyttige annet enn for svindlere. Aukrust var en svindler eller svindleres lakei dvs. for klasseinteressene til offentlige byråkrater. Keynes bidro til samme svindelen. Ikke noen tvil om det. At Aukrust også var nazist, før han ble marxistisk sosialdemokrat, hører også med i bildet. Løgn hører til nazisme = ultra-fascisme, en form for det. Og til ekstremisme på høyre og venstre side av det økonomisk-politiske kartet og i realiteten, dvs. alle totalitære systemer og forkjempere for dette. Kan være genetisk betinget til en viss grad. Maktmennesker kan være født sånn.  Men ikke alltid.

USA har en ny variant «Folkevalgt = Svindel (Rigged)», når anarki = kaos varianten sannsynlig ble stoppet av undertegnede + + og Antioch. Men dette er altså nytale-løgn. Som legitimerer at man skal droppe valg til fordel for førerprinsippet. «Ett folk en fører (Trump) ellers er vi ute og kjører». Valg er tull og tøys og skadelig juks, styring uten valg fra toppen og ned er tingen - i følge dette fusket og løgnen.

Æsj, brun, mørkebrun møkk. Det stinker. Rødbrun, bare brun inklusive mørkebrun, og blå-brun møkk -  stinker! Få det ut og få luftet ut USA. RASKT SOM FAEN.  Hele det Republikanske partiet må i støpeskjeen. NÅ – RASKT.

Man kan også manipulere med navn, nomen, betegnelser. Å kalle handelsnæringens arbeidsgiverorganisasjon «Virke» er et eksempel på dette. «Klart det virker».

Alt dette går inn under begrepet psykologisk krigføring. Demokrati innebærer avlusing av løgn og mer sannhet. Det engelske språket er fullt av manipulasjon sammenlignet med det norske, herskernes psykologiske krigføring mot FOLKET. Koreansk er visst enda verre. Alle språk burde loppes for nytale og annen manipulasjon. Den er legio. Mvh J-HØ. 18.01.2021.

PS. 09.03.2021. Uten å gå videre inn på en diskusjon i detalj på hva som er å regne for offentlige systemkostnader, så må storting, departementer og direktorater samt kommunal administrasjon alt inklusive, opplagt høre hjemme her. Disse systemkostnadene må trekkes fra i det offentlige konsumet for å komme frem til et bedre anslag for verdiskapningen, dvs. BNP fratrukket de offentlige systemkostnadene er et bedre anslag på verdiskapningen enn det ukorrigerte BNP. Dette har betydning for et realistisk anslag på verdiskapningen for by vs. land. Dette betyr at Oslo og de store byene og administrasjons-sentre, hvor systemkostnadene i hovedsak er lokalisert, vil få en justering nedover når det gjelder bidrag til verdiskapningen, og landdistriktene får relativt sett en større andel av verdiskapningen i denne mer realistiske betraktningen, hvor det altså er korrigert for systemkostnader. Overvurderingen av verdiskapningen i by vs. land i ukorrigert BNP dreier seg sannsynligvis om hundrevis av milliarder NOK.

Fake news is an extremist, ultra-authoritarian & real thing

How the totalitarians wage war on the truth

By Timian Sabatini 28.01.2021

Live streamed video of the D.C. Capitol being stormed on January 6 brought viewers worldwide into the moment that internet conspiracy theories exploded in real life. This futile attempt to block Biden from being confirmed was fueled by the false but ferociously repeated tale that votes were stolen and Trump illegitimately denied a second term. That cover transforms lawless rioters into “patriotic heroes.” Commentators claimed to be shocked when the calls for a show of force “like Bunker Hill” — circulated on the web for weeks by pro-Trump extremists — came to life. And they appeared mystified that masses of people could be launched into action by claims and “alt-facts” that have no evidence or basis in reality. In fact, there is a continuous chain stretching over decades that ties mainstream news, link by link, to the remote reaches of dark web white supremacy boards, anti-Semitic memes and fascistic plotting.

A brief history of “Fake News.” Journalism in the US, like other democratic countries, is supposedly held to the standard of objectivity and even-handedness. In reality, exaggerated, sensationalized or outright lying for capitalism and statism has been around for a long time. So, too, has selective presentation and editorial slanting by the wealthy owners of media outlets and their advertisers as well statist propaganda. Information, like other commodities, is controlled by cash & power.

In the US, the Reagan years proved a critical turning point in cracking the veneer of media impartiality. Three events are particularly interesting. The Koch brothers, intending to re-shape US politics, began building a network of right-wing, arch-conservative liberalist and fascistoid think tanks, organizations and bought politicians. Fox News was founded in 1986 — initially the cutting edge of arch-conservative politics but now eclipsed by Breitbart and others farther to the fascist right. And months later, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) threw out its Fairness Doctrine requiring airwaves reporting to cover multiple perspectives.

A slow slide since the 1980s morphed into a journalistic sea change. The term “Fake News” emerged during the 2016 election, largely as Donald Trump’s iteration of a common conservative complaint that the “liberal” media is unfair to them. But who’s doing the faking?An independent study by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism analyzed 429 “hyper-partisan media sites.” Of these, only 8 — or less than 2% — were leftist-leaning.

As print media declined and many small newspapers went belly up, hundreds of online sites purporting to be local news outlets popped up. One stand-out is TV reporter turned internet entrepreneur Brian Timpone. He is linked to multiple interconnected media companies, including Government Information Services, Locality Labs, and others. Combined, they control nearly 1,300 websites scattered across all 50 states. All cater to fascist and right-leaning politicians, lobbyists and PACs (Political Action Committees), often printing their press releases word-for-word. Such networks serve the billionaire-funded propaganda mills, capitalist and statist. Linked up with social media, they become a massive echo chamber. The power of social media to magnify is immense and growing astronomically. Axios reported that online response to sketchy news sources shot up from 0.7 billion in 2019 to 2.8 billion in tumultuous 2020.

The liberal capitalist and statist media fail. Throughout the four-year rule by the Liar-in-Chief Donald Trump, liberal capitalist and statist commentators have counted falsehoods and done daily fact checks. It hasn’t worked much. Still less does citing evidence and reason stem the tide of conspiracy theories. How can one prove to a QAnon zealot that the world’s elite do not secretly rape and eat children? Another unsuccessful ploy is appealing to morality, fairness and decency. Joe Biden’s message to the Capitol mob was outrage at the violation of the “sacred” halls of democracy. Completely ineffectual to those who believe they are defending the “real” winner of the election, speaking for the “shat-upon little guy, and saving the children”. This is the mantle the right-wing ultra-fascist and arch-conservative liberalist propaganda machine has woven.

The far right, ultra-fascist and arch-conservative liberalist media, has a massive advantage over the others when it comes to getting its message out. First, of course, they have immense amounts of money from the über-wealthy. But even more fundamentally: they don’t have to tell the truth. Writing in Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler laid out the basics of extreme right-wing messaging: “Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively … it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favorable to its own side.” The right wing doesn’t have to be factual or even logically consistent. What it must do is speak to the passions and desperation of the masses. Its key purpose is to identify a target, a scapegoat to deflect their fury and frustration away from the true statist and/or capitalist causes and to ordain a strongman savior. Also the red-brown extremists to the left lies, included Trotskyites and other communists, all of the time…

The liberal social democrats, i.e. anarchists, has a job that is both harder and easier. Harder because its purpose is to empower the People to challenge the entrenched ruling class, i.e. private & public Bureaucracy broadly defined, and be able to regenerate the entire social system to one that is humane and genuinely, real democratic. And to do that, liberal social democrats have to not only arouse passion, but also arm workers and the most oppressed with an understanding of how the system works, and what must be done to bring it down and replace it with real, i.e. always including green and pro climate, democracy. What makes the job easier is that unlike fascism and other totalitarian ideologies, which rest on venomous, unsustainable fictions, the path toward real democracy is rooted in reality and genuine non-authoritarian, included non-corrupt - strength, both economically and political/administrative. For liberal social democrats and allies, the justice sought and the means to get there are completely entwined. Tell the truth. Over and over again, especially about the Law of Corruption that explains why strongmen always are the Enemies of the People.

PS. Clarification of the term Revolution in connection with the Economic-Political map (EP map) - and GGS, GAIAN & GRETA THUNBERG and more. Every shift in the coordinates of an economic-political system on the EP map is by definition a revolution. Revolutions can be of varying sizes, some small, and sometimes somewhat larger. Revolution stands in opposition to reform, which is economic-political changes without a shift in the system coordinates, i.e. changes within the system's framework, without going beyond these. Each shift in the coordinates of an economic-political system on the EP map almost always takes place in a continuous process via infinitesimal shifts in the system coordinates, which are dynamically integrated over time, to a significant overall shift in the system coordinates, i.e. to a significant revolution. NB! A series of insignificant revolutions can thus result after a while, in an overall significant revolution. If the revolution is a downward movement on the EP map, it is also called a counter-revolution. Revolutions can also occur by discontinuous, possibly large - shifts in the system coordinates, without us going into this here, beyond noting that such often go terribly wrong, most often due to lack of relevant follow-up organizational structures. GGS, The Green Global Spring Revolution, among others supported by GAIAN Freedomly Zen Buddhists, other libertarians, Greta Thunberg & Co and more, do not pursue this terribly wrong strategy. But on the scheme mentioned under "NB!" above, which probably will be a success, provided the triggering of sufficient crowds to support the scheme (of GGS). And it must happen in due time to avert a full blown climate crisis, with Ragnarokk = FULL HELL ON GAIA, A.K.A. TELLUS AND THE EARTH. JHØ.

14.02.2021. The US Senate has fallen short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict former President Donald Trump on a charge of incitement to insurrection over the Capitol riot on 6 January. A majority of senators - 57 to 43, including seven Republicans - voted to convict Mr. Trump, 10 votes short of the 67 required for conviction. After his acquittal, Mr. Trump released a statement denouncing the trial as "the greatest witch hunt in history". This was Mr. Trump's second impeachment. Of course the nazi & ultra-fascists at GOP with Senate Republican ruler Mitch McConnell at the top, acquitted the nazi & ultra-fascist chief ochlarch (pøbelhersker) and dark Brown Card convict Trump. They are all dark brown nazi & ultra-fascist extremist shit. Sources: BBC & AIIS.

14.08.2022. An anarchist take on the January 6 hearings and the failed fascist-led coup.

When rioters broke into the Capitol building, people were glued to their screens, mesmerized by the sheer enormity of the action happening. January 6, 2021, will live in infamy as the day that a mob of fascists and their friends tried their damnedest to wrest control of the US Congress.

Fast forward a year and a half later, and it’s all being relived, in technicolor glory, thanks to the bipartisan House of Representatives committee investigating the coup. As of this writing in mid-August 2022, there have been seven hearings, with some explosive revelations.
Uncommon honesty. As an anarchist, I did not expect to be surprised by the hearings. But my assumption was shaken by how blasé the powers-that-be were over the attempted overthrow of the elected government. Multiple people testified that Trump and his inner circle knew he lost the election; Trump just did not care. He put out a not-so-subtle call to his white supremacist, nazi and far-right fascist followers, and they responded with plans and weapons.

From where I sit, it took Cassidy Hutchinson to blow the whole thing open. Her testimony was riveting. She made it clear that Trump’s people knew exactly what was happening and that The Donald planned to stride into the Capitol like a conquering hero.
She did what many of those in the know were too spineless or supportive to do. She stood up to the bullying and told the truth. In a CNN interview, former White house communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin backed Hutchinson, saying that Chief of Staff Mark Meadows (Hutchinson’s boss) suggested Griffin stay on the job because Trump would not be leaving office.

The «usefulness» of fascism. The hearings made it abundantly clear that the veneer of US democracy is razor thin; the People have little to no real control over those who rule them, the Bureaucracy, economic and political/administrative, the upper class.

What we have is state and capitalist «democracy», which provides the illusion that people have a real say in the government just through voting. But it’s a rigged game, in which only Republicans and Democrats de facto can get on the ballot. And since politicians on both sides of the aisle protect business and monied & state interests, vertical organization economically and political/administrative, the needs and wishes of The Grassroots = The People, are left in the dust.

But even this “choice” between these two parties may be too much in these precarious and socially volatile times. And that is why the ruling class, the Bureaucracy economic and political/administrative tolerates the existence of fascist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers (notwithstanding the handwringing at the hearings).

The capitalists and statists may need these goons when the next recession hits and brings with it misery for the People, the working class — on top of already unaffordable housing, rents, food, medicine and basic life requirements.

To come to power, fascism must build a mass movement to smash working-class organizations like unions; strip rights and humanity from religious, sexual and ethnic minorities; and reduce women to second-class citizenship. Their way is paved by the bigotry and suspicion that already exists, against immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community, single moms, “greedy” public workers, women and people of color blamed for “taking jobs” from white men, tree-hugging climate activists, leftists and anarchists, and so on.

True democracy for the majority. The January 6 investigation is generating a tsunami of analysis, and much of it is crap. By and large, it promotes the idea that Trump and his minions threatened a precious democracy. In reality, that exists for most US residents only as a fantasy.

So what’s the alternative to the mess that the collapse of moderate capitalism and statism is creating, with its drastic last resort of fascism?

I see anarchism, horizontal organization, as that alternative. I want to live in a world where workers and people who are currently marginalized have not only a voice but significant influence on the decisions. Where we can make sure that the issues important to most of us — things like civil rights, peace, freedom of movement, climate security, health, and basic human rights — are addressed in a sane and sustainable way.

To me, the key takeaway of the hearings is that state & capitalist «democracy» will never be safe from the threat of fascism and it will never be enough for the world’s People. What we need to win is the People’s democracy, horizontal organization, a bottom – up approach, significant.

Big business uses the threat of recession to its advantage, pleading for public handouts to bolster profits, or as now, encouraging a downturn in order to neutralize growing worker power by increasing unemployment.

Current conditions in the US economy are not normally found in a recession. Corporate profits are surging, and inflation is at near record levels. Lingering supply-demand imbalances are unique to the pandemic. There’s a tight labor market and workers have gained some leverage in the last 18 months or so due to their own increased militancy.

A recession, crisis, by any other name: There is no objective definition of an economic “recession,” so it must be one of those things that you “know it if you see it.” The National Bureau of Economic Research “Business Cycle Dating Committee” says that a recession is a “significant decline of economic activity that is spread across the economy and lasts for more than a few months.” The unstated definition however is whether corporate profits are falling. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), a division of the US Department of Commerce, the “real GDP” (gross domestic product, one measure of economic output) decreased by 0.9% in the second quarter of 2022, following a 1.6% decline in the first quarter. That is two consecutive quarters of decline. But they were preceded by six consecutive quarters of increase in a schizophrenic, unprecedented pandemic-driven economy. It’s hard to know if these short-term statistics represent a real problem or are just an anomaly.

Here is the real stuff. As of June, inflation has driven consumer prices up by 9.1% from a year ago, while wages, although up significantly for some, increased only 5.2% overall. Inflation may be easing, with consumer prices no higher in July than June, but it has still caused real wages (wages compared to inflation) to decline. This is not just a pandemic hangover; real income for most workers has been falling for decades. And yet the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates 2.25 percentage points in the last six months, from near zero at the beginning of the year. The pretext is that the economy is overheating, so higher interest rates will throw some cold water on it. The problem with this storyline is that the causes of inflation are supply-demand mismatches and prolonged factory shutdowns in key manufacturing regions left over from the pandemic, global events such as the Russian invasion of Ukraine, natural disasters that disrupted production, and price gouging by corporations. Raising interest rates won’t impact any of these problems.

What it will do is further drain an already beleaguered working class by increasing the cost of credit card balances, mortgages, and auto loans. As if buying a house wasn’t already unattainable for most. Help isn’t “on the way” for US workers (or those anywhere for that matter), and conditions are only getting worse. Capitalists are giddy about interest rate hikes slowing the economy, increasing unemployment, dampening wage growth and, most importantly, undercutting any leverage the working class has gained in the last few years. The idea that US labor, less than 11% of which is unionized, will continue to push back on capitalists is simply unacceptable to them. A leaked internal memo from a Bank of America head of economic research stated this in stark, but clinical, terms. Among other nefarious things, it said the bank hoped that unemployment would rise, so that business could return to its idea of “normal,” and praised the Fed for finally supporting this cause with interest rate hikes. Whether those who create most of the wealth — workers — will go along with this game plan, or continue to be “uppity” remains to be seen. Source: AIIS.

The degree of socialism is dependent of economic equality and freedom, again indicated with efficiency of the system. The gini index is an indicator for capitalism vs. socialism. A gini index above 35 indicates capitalism, a gini index below 35 indecates socialism. In addition to this a high and somewhat increasing GDP per capita measured in constant prices, contributes to socialism, as an indicator of efficiency. Equality contributes far more than efficiency in estimating the degree of socialism vs. capitalism.

Gini indexes for USA; 2019: 41.5, 2017: 41.2, 2016: 41.1; 2015: 41.2, 2003-7: 40.8. A very small increase. The GDP per capita in constant prices has increased a bit from 2003-7 to 2017-19. Thus, all in all, there is no significant change in the degree of capitalism vs. socialism, in USA. The degree of autonomy vs. statism has not increased significantly either. Thus, there has not been a significant change in libertarian vs authoritarian degree, and capitalism vs socialism and autonomy vs. statism in the USA since 2003-7 see the table above. The USA’s system is stable, as a significant capitalist and autonomous system, i.e. a conservative liberalist system. The degree of democracy has not changed significantly.

The ultra-authoritarian reactionary arch-conservative US Supreme Court assails tribal sovereignty

The June 29, 2022, US Supreme Court decision in Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta gave the state of Oklahoma jurisdiction over non-Native crimes against Natives in Indian Country. This decision is the latest step in challenging tribal authority in order to gain control of tribal peoples, lands and resources.

“To put it bluntly, this decision is an act of conquest,” countered Gregory Ablavsky and Elizabeth Hidalgo Reese in their Washington Post editorial. “And it could signal a sea change in federal Indian law, ushering in a new era governed by selective ignorance of history and deference to state power.”

Legal battles galore. In 2015, Oklahoma convicted Manuel Castro-Huerta (a non-Native) of neglecting his blind, developmentally disabled Cherokee stepdaughter. While the defendant’s appeal worked its way through the courts, the US Supreme Court in another case, McGirt v. Oklahoma, upheld in 2020 that most of the eastern half of Oklahoma is Indian Territory. Only federal and tribal law have jurisdiction to prosecute crimes committed by and against Indians there.

Furthermore, Article VI of the US Constitution gives tribes a legal nation-to-nation relationship with the federal government and that has been official policy since 1832. Treaties signed by the US with the tribes are the same as treaties with other nations. Some major crimes on tribal territory come under federal jurisdiction, but most are dealt with in the tribal court system. Individual states have no authority on tribal lands — only the US Congress can change that, and only with tribal agreement.

Hence, based on the Constitution and technically 200 years of federal policy, Oklahoma had no authority to arrest or prosecute Manuel Castro-Huerta in 2015. That case decision today strengthens right-wing Oklahoma politicians’ opposition to McGirt v. Oklahoma two years ago, which reinforced the Supreme Court 1832 decision on sovereignty.

The 1832 decision, however, did not stop President Jackson or another state, Georgia, from force-marching 60 tribes east of the Mississippi River into Oklahoma and other western territories throughout the 1830s. It is widely known as the Trail of Tears. Thousands died along the way. They were all promised these new lands would be set aside for them to live in peace forever.

In recent decades only one-quarter of the US  Supreme Court’s decisions have been in favor of tribes. Even when they win court cases, the laws are often ignored. As Native activist Ann Rogers said, “White gold seekers tore up the Black Hills in South Dakota in the 1800’s; hundreds of children were removed from families to government and church boarding schools — actually labor camps — from 1869 to the 1960s; tribal lands were decimated for mining uranium, fishing treaty rights destroyed, tribal land and water with oil pipelines contaminated. And now they want policing power on tribal land to arrest white criminals!”

Following the money, not humane law. One immediate impact of the Huerta ruling is utter confusion between federal, tribal, and state jurisdiction over crimes on tribal lands. Will tribal members face less protection and more abuse by police? Will sentences be less than in tribal courts? Tribes in Oklahoma have already received $62 million to support increased legal enforcement responsibility after the McGirt decision. Will that be withdrawn?

Oklahoma has spent $10 million on publicity to convince the non-Native public that they need state law enforcement protection from tribes, because tribal territory is claimed to be a “hotbed of crime and drugs.” Oklahoma has already filed 40 different pleas to overturn the McGirt ruling.

The state wants to enrich its coffers by taxing tribal businesses and land (that is, double-taxation) and to control access to natural resources and land usage. A primary goal, no doubt, would be overturning tribal environmental protections, so that corporations can drill, mine, frack, and run pipelines everywhere.

Congress could overrule the Castro-Huerta decision by passing laws, but that would only be a bump in the road for the current campaign to obliterate tribal sovereignty. In the long run, states’ rights politicians’ goals include taxing tribal enterprises to benefit state governments, erasing fishing and hunting rights, overturning tribal environmental laws, and stealing water and mineral resources. In essence the long-term goal is to assimilate Native people and do away with their culture and rights to control their resources.

Next session the Supreme Court will hear the Brackeen v. Haaland case, an attempt to overturn the Indian Child Welfare Act and break up families, steal tribal children, and erase culture based on the claim that tribes are not nations but races. (See “Native children and sovereignty targeted by right-wing lawsuits” at socialism.com.)

The right-wing majority of the Supreme Court is pushing their agenda — a campaign of genocide on this continent’s earliest inhabitants. It will take determined, collaborative organizing among all civil and human rights activists and groups to defend Native sovereignty and stymie big-money moguls’ attacks on Indian Country.

This is the opposite of the bottom – up, horizontal organization, regarding native People and in general in USA, which the anarchists – the liberal social democrats – want of this at the moment conservative liberalist country with some severe authoritarian tendencies, although the system seen all in all and in general is relatively stable since the early 2000-s.

Facebook, Twitter, etc., are not social media, but antisocial, brown authoritarian polyarchical hierarchies. We want them all closed down - NOW! This multi-headed hydra-troll must disappear by law at once!!!
Facebook, Twitter, etc., are not social media, but antisocial, and megaphones of lies and ochlarchy!!! Ochlarchy is mob rule broadly defined...

The Peoples' Journal is part of the free press, not freedom at others' expence, as the antisocial media, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc. do, i.e. ultra-authoritarian propaganda media, not a part of the free press. The liberal social-democrats, i.e. the anarchists, are for free press, not for ultra-authoritarian propaganda media - sewage-media, that are not a part of the free press, but in reality media for criminal ochlarchy. They should thus be forbidden and closed down.

The electronic issues of the International Journal of Anarchism are updated every time there are significant more informations about the different events and cases. But unless special cases, they are not redistributed by e-mail when they are updated. Also the IAT and other pages are updated almost every day.
