“… deadly clashes such as those which took place in Charlottesville yesterday might become as commonplace in the future as gangland shootings in the inner city are today.”

This is a good microcosm of exactly what happened Saturday in Charlottesville. Unite the Right event organizer Jason Kessler attempted to hold a press conference on Sunday to address yesterday’s insane rally. Predictably, a leftist mob came to shut the press conference down. Police, once again, did nothing to maintain the peace and let the mob attack him. After the violence broke out and the press conference was shut down, then the police finally stepped in.

Was this a false flag to shut down future conservative rallies? Note comment and video outtake about picture in this forum post (emphasis mine)
“Also, speculation of false flag. Following pic is supposed frame from vid (enhanced) as backing up. Guy looking in mirror, doesn’t look scared, looks pro, all buckled up. Driving backward up street was definitely pro tier, but maybe luck.”
“What’s interesting to note is that the Charlottesville false flag happened on George Soros’ 87th birthday, perhaps this was his birthday present.”
The random Charlottesville observer who was interviewed by MSNBC and liberal outlets turns out to be a deep state shill with links to George Soros.
It looks like the State Department was involved in Charlottesville rioting and is trying to cover it up.
But after Deep State got caught they are trying to erase this guy from their records.
Proof Brennan Gilmore was there: https://youtu.be/lMnw09kx75c?t=939YouTubeYouTube
The Smith-Mundt “Modernization” Act of 2012* grants the State Department the ability to make propaganda videos to influence DOMESTIC public opinion. Brennan Gilmore being there is an odd coinkydink. When you combine it with Brennan being one of the first people interviewed by the MSM it’s unassailable evidence Charlottesville was a hoax or if people died a False Flag.

Gustave Le Bon in “The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind” provides the following that apply most perfectly here.
1. The improbable does not exist for a crowd, and it is necessary to bear this circumstance well in mind to understand the facility with which are created and propagated the most improbable legends and stories.
2. Crowds, being incapable both of reflection and of reasoning, are devoid of the notion of improbability; and it is to be noted that in a general way it is the most improbable things that are the most striking.
3. Crowds being only capable of thinking in images are only to be impressed by images. It is only images that terrify or attract them and become motives of action.
Charlottesville: Mob Psychology, Soros Production Choreographed Chaos, Police Stand Downs and LIHOP
“… The whole CNN “crew,” John King, Jake Tapper, Fariid Zakariya and their colleagues elsewhere are virtually foaming at the mouth in a competition to be the most extreme, the most condemning, the most hostile toward traditional American culture.
The agitprop technique in the case of the Charlottesville violence is simple but seemingly universal in the left main stream media. The nut-jobs who went to Charlottesville to “protect” the statue of a man who would not have wanted to be “protected” by them are implied to be representative of all Americans who do not wish to see a new, socialist, globalist paradigm for the US.
The intention of the antifa left and its Democratic Party and media wings seems clear. It is to silence through shaming, ostracism, loss of income and perhaps eventually legally anyone who does not submit to be assimilated into a new collective consciousness in an America that believes itself to be a sinner country. pl
A note on comments: Criticism of US policy is acceptable on SST. Condemnation of the US as a sinner nation is not and will not be published.

[Ed.: ‘It’s not who we are as a nation’ is the current whine out of who-knows-where in the ‘omg! stop the violence’ mantra, but here’s the rub; it’s precisely who we are.
We have been one of the most warring nations on the planet. Our heaviest war-time losses stem from the time when we fought ourselves in battles where the dead were stacked up like logs, the ones in which the generals had not yet learned the tactics of maneuver and indirect approach but insisted on sending wave after wave of lightly-armed-and-entirely-unprotected uphill into cannister fire. Have you ever read about the Bloody Angle? Have you stood in the trenches at Marye’s Heights? Have you toured Antietam? Do you comprehend the genocide of the Native Americans? Have you yet grasped the meaning of atomic warfare? Do you ‘grok’ what happened in Vietnam during Operation Phoenix, or in Indonesia? Did you buy into the purposeful killing of office workers in skyscrapers and their rescuers?]

It’s an experience every computer or smart phone user has had. After downloading new software or an app, a window pops up with a legal agreement. At the bottom is an “I agree” button. One click, and it’s gone.
Most users have no clue what they’ve agreed to.
That single action can empower software developers to extract reams of personal information – such as contacts, location, and other private data – from the devices. They can then market the information.
Even as privacy erodes in the digital era, little outcry arises over the digital tracking and profiling of consumers. Only slight murmurs are heard on Capitol Hill.
But a handful of security researchers, lawyers and privacy watchdogs voice increasing concern that consumers might one day wake up in anger at the collection of data by software companies winning rights to do so through “end user license agreements,” also known as EULAs. One researcher says the data collection potentially poses a national security threat.
Gary Reback, a Palo Alto, California, antitrust lawyer who has tangled in legal battles with Google and Microsoft over data privacy issues, said data harvested from consumers has led companies to create individual profiles, often at a level of detail that even family members may not know.
“When an online profile is created of you, which you never really get to see, it’s not just kind of what you buy, it’s who you might vote for,” Reback said in a recent telephone interview.
An old saying goes that when a consumer gets a service or product for free, the consumer becomes the product. His or her profile becomes an item to be marketed.
“You may think your identity is, you look in the mirror and that’s what you see, but it’s really not. Your identity is what they’ve compiled,” Reback said. “That is kind of scary when you think about it. I just don’t think people think about it enough.”

“What’s Really Going on In Venezuela” (Studebaker):
“In a different world, Venezuela might not face this kind of choice. In a different world, the international community might be willing to help Venezuela diversify its economy without making it accept a massive decline in living standards for its poor and working people. But we don’t have the international institutions to live in that world. Most of the time, we leave countries more or less on their own, offering help only if those countries agree to adopt an economic system focused around pleasing international investors. If they’re not willing to do that, we’re willing to let their people starve to death. It’s a cruel system.”

[Ed.: Pay no attention to Alfred McCoy and Peter Dale Scott, among others, who have documented the enormous role played by the American War Machine in fostering the growth, importation and sales of cocaine, crack cocaine. heroin, LSD et al into the US and its cities. Ignore Gary Webb. Ignore the early history of the so-called war on drugs going back to the periods during and just after World War Two in which the banks, Wall Street, the CIA and others have been in bed with organized crime. Completely dismiss the folderol that the major people involved in the creation of the Yale Skull and Bones club were, themselves, made rich by their role in shipping opium. John Kerry Forbes? The Bushes and their friends? You wanna talk about despair? Maybe people are in despair because their social, thought and political leaders have their heads so far up their backside so as to be morally repugnant and blase about getting rich on the despair and death of their citizenry.”]
The Trump administration appears poised to roll back ObamaCare’s anti-discrimination protections for transgender patients, a move that has activist groups girding for a fight.
A proposed rule from the Department of Health and Human Services is expected to be released in the coming weeks or months that opponents say would make it easier for doctors and hospitals to deny treatment to transgender patients and women who have had abortions.
The proposed rule is expected to roll back a controversial anti-discrimination provision buried within ObamaCare.
[Ed.: Just for the record, I don’t agree with this. I am opposed to the creeping cultural Marxism and the attacks on personal sovereignty and society inherent in the trends of transhumanism and the like, but the individual who has been manipulated, mind controlled or otherwise found him or herself in gender limbo must have the pathway through which he and she can find and maintain personal stability. Counseling is part of health care, but even without the counseling the body still needs basic access to health care.]

“Why Some U.S. Ex-Spies Don’t Buy the Russia Story”. Bloomberg, so mainstream, with no mention of Hersh, written by a Putin-skeptic.

“The Russia-Did-It Certitude Challenged”. Interview with Craig Murray on various subjects.
“Has Narenda Modi Switched Sides?” (Engdahl). Modi went destructively anti-Indian right after he met with Bibi! Sounds like India will be the fodder for another proxy war:
“Has Narenda Modi actually switched sides from a genuine supporter of peaceful resolution of Indo-Pakistani and Indo-Chinese border disputes in a spirit of good-willed collaboration within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, or was he Janus-faced in terms of his allegiances from the 2014 onset of his tenure as prime Minister, a kind of Anglo-American-Israeli Trojan Horse sent to sabotage China’s promotion of the Eurasian new Economic Silk Road? The answer is not yet known at least not by this author. However, a well-placed Indian source with close ties to the Indian military forces noted to me in a recent private correspondence that shortly following Trump’s election in November last year, a senior US intelligence adviser to the Trump circles stated bluntly that there would not be a war between USA and China, but rather there would be a war between India and China across the Himalayas. That was in November at a time Doklam was completely quiet.”
“A war in the Himalayas would expose India’s soft power” (Bhadrakumar).
“Facing Defeat in Syria, ISIS Inexplicably Expands Globally” (Cartalucci). The world-wide American proxy army, which turns up whenever and wherever American interests need a helping hand, exists on some kind of mysterious funding which is ‘inexplicable’.
“Destroying the Islamic State group could create a ‘radical Iranian empire,’ warns Henry Kissinger”. The mask slips . . .
“Bring Me the Head of Jeff Bezos” (Shamir). “I Fell Victim to a $1,500 Used Camera Lens Scam on Amazon”. Note how this clever scam could happen to anybody who buys from a third-party vendor on Amazon, and Jeff won’t help you once you are defrauded.
“UN Human Rights Body Makes an Outlandish Statement on Venezuela”. I’ve noticed that the UN is particularly vile in its lies these days. There is a very HRW-type of stench to its selective outrage.
“What’s Left of the Bolivarian Revolution?” “Why Venezuela needs our solidarity”. I still think that the approach to Venezuela today is the definitive test of whether you are dealing with a real progressive, or a poseur posing as ‘left’ to promote the usual right-wing agenda.
“Fire McMaster, Urges Pro-Israel Group Backed by Sheldon Adelson”. “Netanyahu’s Billionaire Backer May Help Bring Him Down”. Sheldon seems to be having a tough time as the respective pragmatists circle the wagons.
“The De-Putin-Nazification of America”!
“Was Sergey Brin’s Ex-Sister-In-Law the Driving Force in Getting James Damore Canned?” Of all the major companies in the world, Google has the most peculiar attitude to ‘free speech’, having to pretend to be all for it while actually being entirely, and actively, against it. So the firing decision fits their business model to a tee, while being overly clumsy and obvious. Damore is smart enough to know this would happen, so I’m thinking this was a ploy to get a new, much better, job from some Silicon Valley bro-billionaire who likes the way he thinks, plus a big settlement from Google to make this all go away. We’re starting to see how Google is going to self-destruct.
Defense of Damore by the Ur-snowflake: “Why Google was wrong: Did James Damore really deserve to be fired for what he wrote?” I did not see that coming! It emphasizes the cleverness with which the memo was written. It is a ‘trigger’ with no bullet in the chamber.
We can never forget that people like Lang are, fundamentally, insane American Exceptionalists, a trait that The Clarification has demonstrated he shares with almost everybody on the American ‘Left’, including much of the alt-Left. It appears Lang has taken his ball home again, not caring for the insolence of the punk-ass commentators, who he wants off his lawn.
