We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Making Globalism Great Again

Click here to access article by C.J. Hopkins from OffGuardian.

This master satirist takes aim at the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire and their media corporations to reveal so many insights about this hegemon imposing their life-sapping sanctions, invasions, false-flag operations and other subversive actions on those countries who try to maintain some independence--and especially if they have natural resources that the Empire's corporations want. 

Maybe Trump is not such a buffoon after all. He has not built his real estate empire by playing nice. Trump is very much influenced by power because he is addicted to power; and he knows that if he is to survive in office, he must respect the powerful Deep State and its imperial objectives. 
Scanning the recent Trump-related news, I couldn’t help but notice a significant decline in the number of references to Weimar, Germany, Adolf Hitler, and “the brink of fascism” that America has supposedly been teetering on since Hillary Clinton lost the election.

I googled around pretty well, I think, but I couldn’t find a single editorial warning that Trump is about to summarily cancel the US Constitution, dissolve Congress, and proclaim himself Führer. Nor did I see any mention of Auschwitz, or any other Nazi stuff … which is weird, considering that the Hitler hysteria has been a standard feature of the official narrative we’ve been subjected to for the last two years.

So how did Trump finally get the liberal corporate media to stop calling him a fascist? He did that by acting like a fascist (i.e., like a “normal” president). Which is to say he did the bidding of the deep state goons and corporate mandarins that manage the global capitalist empire … the smiley, happy, democracy-spreading, post-fascist version of fascism we live under.
