The Bells of Barcelona Toll for Europe

What is clear is that the post-WW2 ‘order’ continues to fracture. What that means for North America remains to be seen. (Western Rifle Shooters)

President Trump got bad advice about the secession crisis in Catalonia. When Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy visited the White House last week, he said that Spain’s northeastern region would be “foolish to secede.” On the contrary, the gutsy Catalans are the world’s poster-boy for populism. Their independence movement is a real revolution. America shouldn’t meddle in Spain’s internal affairs, to be sure, but we ought to recognize a kindred political movement when we see it. Ultimately, the Catalan independence movement is a response to Europe’s demographic cataclysm.

Here’s what I wrote in Asia Times today:

Revolution Returns To Europe …

Past the point of no return, the Catalans will not turn back — nor should they

Political analysts are blinking in disbelief at yesterday’s events in Catalonia, trying to recognize the political phenomenon that took the world by surprise over the weekend. For the first time since the end of the Second World War, a revolutionary movement has asserted its power over an important European region. The conduct of the Catalan independence referendum was a thoroughly organized insurgency involving the whole of civil society, from the region’s Catholic Church to the organs of public safety. Unlike the failed independence movements of Quebec or Scotland, it was not a top-down affair promoted by a small political elite with the sentimental support of a popular minority. Unlike Italy’s Lega Lombarda, it was not a regional lobby fighting for more control of tax revenues. Catalan’s independence movement is the genuine article.

Never in postwar European history have tens of thousands of citizens collaborated in a campaign of civil disobedience so well planned that it successfully countered the mass deployment of national police and the paramilitary Civil Guard, and with sufficient grit to take nearly 1,000 injuries requiring medical treatment. The Catalans kept more than 2,000 voting stations open and saved their ballots from seizure, allowing more than 2.4 million of the region’s 7 million residents to vote.  Ninety percent of them supported the establishment of an independent Catalan republic.

To frustrate the Madrid government’s attempt to suppress the referendum, the independence movement coordinated the occupation of hundreds of polling stations by ordinary citizens, including families with children. It persuaded the regional police, the Mossos d’Esquadra, to stand off the Civil Guard and National Police, as in this video published by the Catholic-Monarchist newspaper ABC:

It organized the fire brigades of Catalan towns to form human shields between the polling stations and the Civil Guard. It established mechanisms to hide the ballot-boxes from the national police and transport them to a secret site for counting. Where the national police forces broke through, ordinary citizens defended the vote with their bodies, resulting in nearly 1,000 injuries, against roughly a dozen injuries for police, in a display of determined but non-violent resistance.

The Catalans did so with the explicit support of their Church, 400 of whose clerics signed an independence manifesto last week, including some bishops. Unlike the anti-clerical left-wing movements of the past, the Catalan revolutionaries evinced thoroughly bourgeois goals. As a revolutionary movement, the Catalans better resemble the Americans of 1776 than the French of 1789, the Russians of 1917, or the Catalan revolutionary government of the late 1930s that ultimately was crushed by Francisco Franco. They are tired of subsidizing the backward money-sinks of Spain’s southern provinces; they are hard-working and productive, and want to separate from the economically irreparable parts of Spain.

De Facto State of Emergency: Spanish Police Storm Catalonia Government Office

“Spanish national police have stormed ministries and buildings belonging to Catalonia’s regional government to put a stop to the region’s independence referendum.

In the early hours of the morning armed officers arrived at various Catalan ministries, including the economy department, foreign affairs department, and social affairs department, Spanish media reports.

At least twelve Catalan officials are said to have been arrested, including the chief aide to Catalonia’s deputy prime minister, Josep Maria Jové. The arrests come as the mayors of Catalan towns who back the referendum were yesterday questioned by state prosecutors.

Pro-independence crowds have formed outside the regional ministries in support of the provincial government and in protest against the raids and searches.

Speaking at lunchtime Carles Puigdemont, the president of the Catalonian government, said the Spanish government had “de facto suspended” home rule in the province.

Spanish Assembly Rejects Use of Force

The tactics of prime minister Mariano Rajoy have not won him any popularity contests.

The Spanish national assembly on Wednesday rejected a motion to support the Spanish government’s heavy-handed response to the the referendum by 166 votes against to 158 in favor, after the centre-left opposition party PSOE teamed up with left-wingers Podemos and smaller separatist parties in the parliament.

After news of the raids broke on Wednesday, separatist political parties, as well as Podemos, cancelled all their planned political events for the rest of the day.

“It is unacceptable for there to be political prisoners in a European democracy. The Partido Popular leads us to an authoritarian regression that cannot be tolerated,” a spokesperson for Podemos said on social media.

Government Suspended

The Guardian reports Catalan president says Madrid is suspending region’s autonomy.

The Catalan president has accused the Spanish government of effectively suspending the region’s autonomy and declaring a de facto state of emergency. Police officers raided Catalan government offices on Wednesday and arrested 12 senior officials in a bid to stop an independence referendum being held in less than two weeks’ time.

Carles Puigdemont described the raids as a “a co-ordinated police assault” that showed that Madrid “has de facto suspended self-government and applied a de facto state of emergency” in Catalonia.

Speaking after an emergency ministerial meeting, Puigdemont vowed the poll would go ahead, adding: “We reaffirm our peaceful response. The Spanish government has crossed a red line and become a democratic disgrace.”

The mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, tweeted: “Searching public bodies and arresting officials for political reasons is a democratic scandal. We defend Catalan institutions.”

Mayor Colau is against independence but she does want to allow the vote.

What if Britain treated Scotland the way Spain treats Catalonia?

UK MP Daniel Hannon hits the nail on the head with his Telegraph piece on Europhiles.

Imagine that, instead of agreeing terms with Alex Salmond on an independence referendum, David Cameron had prosecuted him. Suppose Tory MPs had called for troops to be deployed to prevent a vote, and for Scots to be Anglicised. Scottish voters would have felt, with justice, that they were being treated as conquered vassals and the United Kingdom would have cracked apart.

Incredibly, Spanish conservatives are taking this line on Catalonia. For many on the Spanish Right, hostility to separatism is the core of their beliefs. They justify their inflexibility by pointing to the letter of the constitution, which forbids such plebiscites, but their motive is more atavistic than legalistic. Paradoxically, they are creating the very thing they purport to oppose. You persuade people to stay by making clear they are free to leave.

Rajoy’s tactics have done nothing but drum up support for independence.

Catalonia Shortchanged?

In Catalonia’s case, the regional government says that Madrid shortchanged it by somewhere in the range of €11 billion to €15 billion in 2011 (between €1,500 and €2,000 per capita), depending on how one does the calculations. The central government countered by saying the gap was only €8.5 billion.

By the Spanish government’s own admission, Catalonia is shortchanged.

Those are 2011 numbers, from a 2015 article in Fortune, but I have seen nothing more recent.

A September 2017 BBC article, referenced below, mentions the same numbers.

Region or Nation?

With its own language, a recorded history of more than 1,000 years as a distinct region, and a population nearly as big as Switzerland’s (7.5 million), Catalonia’s claim to nationhood is serious.

The above snip from the BBC report Catalonia’s Collision Course with Madrid.

I support that view. More importantly, so do 700 mayors in the region.

Let the voting begin.

Russian TV Begins To Educate Its Citizens About Rothschild ☭ Global Power

https://i0.wp.com/anonymous-news.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/s-2-5-696x358.jpg?zoom=2

A weekend news broadcast, aired on Russia’s Channel 1 on April 2, 2017 reports on the history of the Rothschild family, using Nazi propaganda footage and antisemitic caricatures.

The item, which was broadcast following the death of American banker David Rockefeller, purported to shed light on another wealthy international banking dynasty, the Rothschilds.

The use of Nazi propaganda footage – and moreover, without explicitly mentioning the Nazi regime – is unusual in public broadcasts on Russian media. The broadcast describes the major conspiracy theories regarding the Rothschild family, claiming that it is part of an international Jewish plot to take control of the world.

The MEMRI TV clip has translated excerpts from the original news item.

Arrest The Sanctuary Mayors Now

(Vdare) Every civil war has a Fort Sumter moment—a point of contention over which disputing factions stake a political claim and refuse to budge, leading to all-out war. And in this Cold Civil War through which we are now living, the growing hostility between President Donald Trump and sanctuary state politicians will inevitably produce such a confrontation; probably within the next year. [Attorney General Sessions Raises Stakes for Sanctuary Cities, by Pete Williams, NBC, July 25, 2017] If Donald Trump is wise enough, he can capitalize on the situation in much the same way that Abraham Lincoln capitalized on the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter during the first Civil War.

The attack on Fort Sumter in 1861 is often portrayed as an act of unprovoked aggression on the part of the Confederacy. But the truth is more complicated than that. Fort Sumter was not simply a military installation, but a Union tax collection office perched in the center of Charleston harbor.

The Morrill Tariff, which was widely supported in the North, but vehemently opposed in the South, was signed into law by President James Buchanan two days before Lincoln took office. The legislation promised to triple the import tariff, and was especially burdensome on the import-dependent South. The challenge, for Lincoln, was that the Confederate South no longer considered itself obligated to pay any tariffs to the Union government.

In his Inaugural Address, President Lincoln directly responded to this challenge and insisted that he had the full authority to collect all tariffs owed to the federal government, by force, if necessary. (Lincoln also insisted, incidentally, that he was perfectly willing to maintain slavery).

President James Buchanan—long regarded, perhaps unfairly, as one of our weakest presidents—had sent a supply ship to Fort Sumter in January, 1861, but the ship immediately turned around after being fired upon. Lincoln, therefore, surely knew that the Confederates would attack again when he ordered a small fleet of ships to resupply Fort Sumter in the spring of 1861. He even sent a delegate to the governor of South Carolina to inform him that the ships were on their way.

Whatever the merits of the Confederate cause, they had boldly challenged the authority of the American President and the legitimacy of federal law over their territories. If the Union was going to survive, Lincoln could not back down over Ft. Sumter. More pressingly, Lincoln knew that the side that fired the first shot would be at a serious moral disadvantage.

Today

Fast forward some 156 years later and the United States is in the midst of a different kind of civil war—a Cold Civil War over the National Question. And our Fort Sumter may well come over the issue of “sanctuary cities”—cities whose official policy is that of non-cooperation with the Federal immigration authorities.

During last year’s campaign, Donald Trump promised to withhold federal funds to sanctuary cities and he has kept that promise, so far, by appointing Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and supporting, among other things, the No Sanctuary For Criminals Act, which bars sanctuary cities and states from receiving federal funds (a policy VDARE.com has long advocated).

In response, some jurisdictions have backed away from their sanctuary policies. .[ Miami-Dade commission votes to end county’s ‘sanctuary’ status, By Alan Gomez, USA TODAY, February 17, 2017]

But most sanctuary politicians remain defiant and insist that they will defy any federal attempts to deport illegal aliens in their cities. In fact, California and, to a lesser degree, Massachusetts, are now moving to officially become sanctuary states. [Debate rages over California’s ‘sanctuary state’ law, by By Kyung Lah and Alberto Moya, CNN, July 3, 2017 and Supreme Judicial Court ruling gives legal cover to sanctuary cities, By Milton J. Valencia, Boton Globe, July 24, 2017]

So how should President Trump respond?

From allegedly liberal Massachusetts (home to five sanctuary cities), Bristol County Sherriff Thomas Hodgins told the Senate Judiciary Committee: “If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of title 8 of the US Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials.” [MA Sheriff: Arrest Leaders of Sanctuary Cities, CBS Boston, March 8, 2017]

In response, Mayor Joseph Curtatone of Somerville, MA was defiant: “Come and get me.” [‘Come and get me,’ Somerville mayor says to sheriff calling for arrest of sanctuary city leaders, by Dialyn Dwyer, Boston Globe, March 29, 2017]

They should do exactly that. Attorney General Jeff Sessions should issue an arrest warrant, and federal officials should enter Somerville City Hall, throw the cuffs on Mayor Curtatone, put him in jail, and prosecute him.

Sure, the mayor might be out of jail in an hour. And the Main Stream Media talking heads will freak out. But can there be any doubt that the American public will overwhelmingly support Trump—especially if he communicates why he was forced to act?

Such a high-profile arrest would also put the fear of God into most sanctuary politicians. As Netflix President Frank Underwood put it: “I have often found that bleeding hearts have an ironic fear of their own blood.”

Indeed they do. These sanctuary politicians will be shocked when they discover that the vast majority of Americans are actively hostile to sanctuary policies and side with Trump.

An arrest of a sanctuary politician would also serve as a very inexpensive form of immigration enforcement because it would encourage many illegals to self-deport and deter many more from entering in the first place.

My guess is that the Left’s strategy will be to challenge the No Sanctuary For Criminals Act in the courts, and effectively nullify it until a Democrat is elected to the White House. This was pretty much the strategic response to California’s Proposition 187 (1994), and it worked.

In other words, they don’t really believe that Trump can pull this off. And that is all the more reason why he must act boldly.

My candidate for the best politician for Trump to arrest: California Governor Jerry Brown. “Governor Moonbeam” is the perfect poster boy for Sanctuary America; the kind of political opponent Trump could steamroll, not just because he is a weird guy, but because he is a total hypocrite.

For example, Brown once claimed to oppose sanctuary policies. “I don’t support sanctuary cities,” he said in 2010. “Just opening up the cities and saying our borders don’t mean anything, as the state’s chief law enforcement officer, I’m not going there.” [Jerry Brown on the issues, SFGate, March 10, 2010 ]

But Brown more recently most definitely has “gone there”. Governor Brown recently appropriated as much as $30 million in the state budget to help illegals escape deportation. This is in addition to the small fortune California has spent hiring former Attorney General Eric Holder for the same purpose. In fact, Brown recently pardoned several deportees who had been convicted of serious crimes so that they can return to the country—implying that he has the power to pardon the crime of illegal immigration, which he does not. [Gov. Jerry Brown issues pardons, commutes sentences hours before Easter Sunday, by John Myers, Los Angeles Times, April 15, 2017]

Indeed, Brown’s hypocrisy on immigration runs deep. When Brown was governor during the 1970s, he openly opposed the importation of Vietnamese boat people. “There is something a little strange about saying, ‘Let’s bring in 500,000 more people’ when we can’t take care of the 1 million [Californians] out of work,” said Brown in 1975. He even tried to prevent the planes carrying refugees from landing at Travis Air Force base in Northern California. [Governors’ Tough Talk Can’t Block Refugees, by George Skelton, Los Angeles Times, November 23, 2015]

Brown has also inherited considerable wealth from his father’s shady oil business, and yet he continually inveighs against fossil fuels and “climate change.”

Moreover, despite Brown’s significant inherited wealth, Brown and state legislators recently gave themselves a 3% pay raise, making Jerry Brown the highest-paid governor in the country. [Lawmakers, Jerry Brown, Get Another Pay Raise, by Christopher Cadelago, Sacramento Bee, June 19, 2017 ]

If the feds were to arrest Brown, and he should protest, Trump should simply remind the public that Jerry Brown doesn’t understand the law and that is probably why he flunked the bar exam the first time he took it.

Remember, Abraham Lincoln took infinitely more drastic steps during our first civil war—the suspension of habeas corpus, the imprisonment of some 30,000 private citizens without trial, an executive order to seize any newspapers critical of the Union cause etc. And yet we have effectively canonized Abraham Lincoln and honored him with the most magnificent memorial in our nation’s capital.

In contrast, all Donald Trump needs is the courage to enforce the specific law that is already on the books.

What will the obstructionist judiciary do when President Trump arrests a public official for breaking the law? Especially when most of the citizenry applauds—and they will, if Trump states his case forcefully.

Patriotic Immigration Reform’s Fort Sumter moment is coming. Will President Donald Trump face the challenge as Abraham Lincoln did before him? Or will he allow these modern-day rebels to flout our immigration laws in perpetuity?

We’ll soon find out.

AMERICANS Storm CNN Headquarters Demanding CNN Stop Broadcasting FAKE NEWS

https://i2.wp.com/media.breitbart.com/media/2017/07/CNN-Protesters-640x480.jpg

ATLANTA, Georgia — Protesters stormed the CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia chanting “No more fake news!” at the network’s headquarters to demand an end to publishing fake news

CNN, most recently, has been engulfed in fake news scandals, as well as getting caught for targeting the creator of an anti-CNN internet meme. The scandals have resulted in at least three CNN employees resigning and forcing the corporation to retract Russia-related stories.

Brian Maloney of the Media Equalizer told protesters outside CNN’s headquarters that the corporate media giant puts down Americans and Trump supporters.

“They are laughing at us, but we are fighting back,” Maloney said. “Americans are standing up and saying that we have absolutely had enough.”

“No more fake news! No more fake news,” the protesters chanted.

Debbie Dooley, an organizer of the protest, said she wants companies that advertise with CNN to be held accountable for the “very fake news” that has been produced.

“We the people can do this,” Dooley said. “We worked hard to elect Donald Trump. That was just the beginning. We need to continue to fight. We need to continue to take it to the Resist movement. And we depend on Breitbart to give us the truth.”

“CNN, no more fake news and if you continue to do so, we’re going to be out here every month until you report unbiased news,” Dooley said.

The protest against CNN came after the media corporation was slammed for a multitude of scandals. Most recently, three CNN employees were forced to resign, as Breitbart News reported, after releasing a Trump-Russia collusion story that ended up being unfounded.

CNN hosts and reporters were also caught claiming that during the recent G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a “secret dinner,” Breitbart News reported. That narrative was repeated by CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, among others, despite not being true.

50 Ways to Starve the Beast

(TheOrganicPrepper) A term coined in 1985 by an unnamed staffer of the Reagan administration was “Starve the Beast”. This referred to a fiscally conservative political strategy to cut government spending by paying less in taxes. So, in the original sense, “the Beast” was the government, and people were to starve the beast by spending less and using loopholes, therefore paying less in taxes.

https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/imagenes_sociopol/bigbrother141_01.jpg

These days the Beast has a lot more tentacles than just the government.  The system now consists of the government and all aspects of Big Business.  Big Agri, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, Big Food, Big Banking and Big Oil, to name a few.  It seems that now it’s the Beast doing the starving, as small businesses close because they can’t compete with Wal-Mart, the family farm is on it’s way out because it can’t compete with the huge, subsidized Monsanto mega-farms, people are going bankrupt because they can’t pay the outrageous medical bills…

Perhaps it’s time for another financial revolution – one where people group together and use the power of the boycott to starve all the arms of this Beast that would swallow us whole.  If we vote with our dollars, eventually there will, of a necessity, be a paradigm shift that returns us to simpler days, when families that were willing to work hard could make a living without selling their souls to the corporate monoliths.

Every penny you spend with small local businesses is a penny that the big box stores won’t have.  Everything that you buy secondhand or barter for is an item on which you won’t pay sales tax.  Disassociate yourself completely with “the system” that is making Western civilization broke, overweight and unhealthy.  Starve the Beast by taking as many of these steps as possible…

  1. Grow your own food (this starves Big Agri and Big Pharma both)
  2. Shop at local businesses with no corporate ties
  3. Use natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals whenever possible
  4. Homeschool your children
  5. Walk or bike instead of driving when possible
  6. Get care from naturopaths and healers instead of doctors
  7. Make paper logs from scraps for free heat if you have a wood-burning fireplace or stove
  8. Boycott all processed foods
  9. Shop at local farmer’s markets
  10. Boycott corporate stores: Wal-Mart, Costco, Best Buy, Home Depot
  11. Give vouchers as gifts for an evening of babysitting, a homemade meal, walking the dog, doing a repair, or cleaning
  12. Join a CSA or farm co-op
  13. Ditch television (and all the propaganda and commercials)
  14. Participate in the barter system – if no money changes hands, no tax can be added
  15. Buy secondhand from yard sales, Craigslist and thrift stores
  16. Sell your unwanted goods by having a yard sale or putting an ad on Craigslist
  17. Repair things instead of replacing them
  18. Avoid fast food restaurants and chain restaurants
  19. Dine at locally owned establishments if you eat out
  20. Brew your own beer and wine
  21. Read a book, purchased second-hand or borrowed
  22. Grow or gather  medicinal herbs
  23. Give homemade gifts
  24. Attend free local activities: lectures, concerts, play days at the park, library events
  25. Dumpster dive
  26. Play outside: hike, bike, picnic
  27. Mend clothing
  28. Invite someone over for dinner instead of meeting at a restaurant
  29. Throw creative birthday parties at home for your kids instead of renting a venue
  30. Camp instead of staying at a hotel
  31. Bring your coffee with you in a travel mug
  32. Do all of your Christmas shopping with small local businesses and artisans
  33. Reduce your electricity usage with candles, solar power and non-tech entertainment
  34. Drop the thermostat and put on a sweater
  35. Bring your snacks and drinks in a cooler when you go on a road trip
  36. Stay home – it’s way easier to avoid temptation that way
  37. Pack lunches for work and school
  38. Make delicious homemade treats as a hostess gift
  39. Close your bank account or at the very least, strictly limit your balance
  40. Visit u-pick berry patches and orchards, then preserve your harvest for the winter
  41. Use precious metals stored at home as your savings account
  42. Raise backyard chickens for your own eggs
  43. If you are a smoker, roll your own cigarettes – if possible go one step further and grow tobacco
  44. Live in a smaller, more efficient home
  45. Use solar power for lighting or cooking
  46. Collect rainwater for use in the garden
  47. Learn to forage
  48. Buy heavy, solid, handmade furniture instead of the flimsy imported stuff
  49. At the holidays, focus on activities and traditions instead of gifts.  Go for a walk or drive through the neighborhood to look at lights, get into your PJs and watch a special movie together on Christmas Eve and make certain treats that can always be expected
  50. Make your own bath and body products using pure ingredients like coconut oil, essential oils, and herbal extracts.

You may not be able to do all of the above, but what you can’t do others can and working together we will limit what the beast takes from us…. which is the end result we are looking for right? Things foretold to be impossible have been shown otherwise 🙂 keep faith!

How do you Starve the Beast? Please share your suggestions in the comment section…

Joyful Times Before the Storm

Cycles and seasons govern collective human behavior, whether they are irregular economic cycles from decade to decade, or the lifespan of a nation or civilization across the centuries. Likewise, some primeval force seems to take hold of a people once every human life-span or so, a force that drives a people to stand up and fight their enemies, to die if they have to, to declare that the time for compromise has reached its end because further concessions will ultimately destroy who they are as a people. Sometimes the people aim their wrath at enemies outside the gates, sometimes at the enemies within.

We are living in the cusp of such a time today. Traitors and parasites rule over the white nations of the West. They seek our displacement as a people at the very least, and they are setting the world stage for another fratricidal world war to cement their power. And the white people under their rule remain almost hopelessly confused and divided, ready to kill each other because the time for compromise has reached its limit. The lines are being drawn.

In perhaps months, or maybe a few years, the blood of thousands or millions will flow. And in the years after this season has passed, when whatever remains of the nations struggle to rebuild, the survivors will look back on today’s opulent, relatively peaceful, and carefree years as a golden age. And in many ways, in comparison to the future, maybe these years will actually be golden ones.

As we prepare ourselves for the battles to come, I recommend that we take the time to give thanks for our families and good friends, for the decent people that still exist out there, for good health and good hospitals, for our plentiful food and clean water, and every other joyous and fragile thing that we tend to take for granted. Let us appreciate them while we can.

May the Lord have mercy on us all.
