Sunday, March 20th open thread: ‘Riot’

March 20, 2016

open-threadHere is the open thread for Sunday, March 20th. Happy Birthday my love! Also congratulations to Megan and Dan!

  Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

   Last week we covered 12 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

  The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!

  I had a song all picked out that I was going to use for this week’s open thread but due to the events of the last week I have decided to change it. It is pretty clear to me that the Democrats are trying to incite violence during this election season while trying to pin the blame on Donald Trump.

  First they come out and start talking about how Donald Trump’s rhetoric is inciting violence through his campaign rhetoric even though this has not been the case and this has caused people to take to the streets in protest. Then people like George Soros get behind the protests by funding them. This culminated yesterday when protesters blocked the streets to a Trump rally denying people from attending the rally. The end game here is to cause a reaction by Trump supporters, and in their minds they hope it will be a violent reaction so their self-fulfilling prophesy will come true and they can point to Donald Trump as the cause.

  Here is Three Days Grace performing “Riot” and I dedicate it to those on the left who are hoping to use violence for political advantage. Hopefully Trump supporters will see that this is the Hegelian Dialectic in motion and will restrain themselves as these protests get more and more heated as the election draws nigh.

  There are a couple of F-Bombs in this video but of course you cannot have a riot without F-Bombs, can you?

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off so stepped on
You’re not the only one
Refusing to back down
You’re not the only one
So get up

Let’s start a riot, a riot
Let’s start a riot
Let’s start a riot, a riot
Let’s start a riot

If you feel so filthy
So dirty so fucked up
If you feel so walked on
So painful so pissed off
You’re not the only one
Refusing to go down
You’re not the only one
So get up

Let’s start a riot, a riot
Let’s start a riot
Let’s start a riot, a riot
Let’s start a riot

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up

Let’s start a riot, a riot

      This and Steve’s ‘head banging’ beat … very noisy!! You can tell I’m over 40!! The vid is interesting though. Today police will be suited and equipped for fighting the enemy for the banker elites don’t want to start things until ‘it’s time’ and have an excuse to annihilate them all! Which goes with the puppets in the music industry gearing up (socially conditioning) the masses (youth) to riot on clue. They’ll think it’s them deciding to do it, but really like the pasties used for the staged events/OPs they’ll just be following their masters, unknowingly! The Philos. of ‘free choice and will’ an illusion of the ‘evils that be’ controlling them, their thoughts, moods and actions – be it by the music or frequencies / elector-micro-magnetic waves the can shut them off (faint) or turn them on (anger) at the prescribed time to fit the Agenda.

        I am going to be 50 this year but I still like the headbanging music! I don’t listen to it as often as I used to and I have expanded my tastes but sometimes you just have to put on this type of music and let it all out. 🙂

        I have a few more aches and pains being OVER 60, but mentally, I do not “think” older. Strange how that happens! ZIP, I have been known to put on some Saturday Night Fever, Disco Inferno to do some fast walking…never get enough of the songs on that movie. STEVE, 50 is not old, just remember that. Now, just remember to also not turn into one of those “old farts” that think they can get a 20-ish little honey and you will be fine….I imagine you will be kept in check on that one. I also do not think I need to dress in the newest fad, I prefer my jeans and tshirts and have stepped out of the platforms into more reasonable shoes…guess aging does have a few limitations.

        The climbers, have political intentions. That is the reason that I was turned down for promotion to lieutenant, three times. I probably could have made captain over the years but, I had no political intentions, and could spend time after hours at a bar if I wanted to, and look any cop right in the eye. The political hacks, since the 20th century, have been cultivating worms like themselves.

    The protest at both the Democratic and Republican rallies seems to encourged. Because why isn’t the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act being invoked? The act makes it a federal crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison to “willfully and knowingly” enter a restricted area or to engage in “disorderly or disruptive conduct” that in any way impedes “government business or official functions.” This applies to any situation where Secret Service is providing protection – this includes Hillary and Trump right now.

        They are for sure pushing all the buttons they can to get someone to take a swing so it can be recorded…that is pretty dirty playing, but nothing that I do not expect from them. I will say that I think there is limit that Trump will let them push before he strikes back….hopefully it will be a well thought out plan on his part.

    This is a very informative article that should be read to understand the so called conservative Republicans and the threat Trump poses to them.

    Anti-Establishment Conservatives Should Support Trump Over Cruz

    …Cruz does not challenge the fundamental reigning paradigm. Cruz is just more so or a more precise representation of the current paradigm, as is the movement “conservatism” that Cruz so scrupulously reflects. Within the paradigm Cruz is more conservative by degree, and the Establishment prefers centrists and moderates, but he does not directly challenge the paradigm…

    In addition to fundamentally getting conservatism wrong, much of what passes for modern movement conservatism is not actually conservative, in the classical sense, at all. A lot of basic modern conservative rhetoric and argumentation is more closely a variation of classical liberalism, something many cosmopolitan cons will happily admit…

      Not to say I agree w/ all he states in this article, but how would we know anything about him that those who control the information would allow us to know? Does the enemy want us to know the truth or just skate along on the Lies they put down in the direction they want us to go …

    Its deja vu all over again. The same element (read communists) that disrupted the 68′ democrat convention in Chicago will use the same template in Cleveland this summer. The Trump rallies are just warmups. The difference between then and now isctgatvtge american populace as a whole is so dumbed down thT the GOP instead of the rioters will be blamed for the coming chaos and attending death and destruction. And with the police and national guard unable to take control of the streets because they are now afraid of their own shadows the fag hag will reap the benefits and triumphantly take the oath of office in January, 2017. America, R.I.P. And a Happy Palm Sunday to all the infidels.

    When I was 15, I didn’t care much for Spiro T. Agnew, and I thought his disgrace was earned, but read what he said back then:

    “The era of appeasement must come to an end. The political and social demands that dissidents are making of the universities do not flow from sound basic educational criteria, but from strategic considerations on how to radicalize the student body, polarize the campus and extend the privileged enclaves of student power. [2. ] A concise and clear set of rules for campus conduct should be established, transmitted to incoming freshmen, and enforcedwith immediate expulsion the penalty for serious violations. [3. ] It is folly for universities confronted with their current crisis in our turbulent times to open their doors to thousands of patently unqualified students. [4. ] No negotiations under threat or coercion. [5. ] No amnesty for lawlessness or violence. [6. ] Any organization which publicly declares its intention to violate the rules of an academic community and which carries out that declaration should be barred from campus. [7. ] We must look to how we are raising our children. [8. ] We must look to the university that receives those children. Is it prepared to deal with the challenge of the nondemocratic Left?[9. ] Let us support those courageous administrators, professors and students on our college campuses who are standing up for the traditional rights of the academic community.”

    And of course “A spirit of national masochism prevails, encouraged by an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.”

    And his famous ” In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4H Clubthe hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history.”

      Dealing with Kennedy they decided to cut off who they saw as the head the snake. With Nixon they changed strategies and first cut off the tail (Agnew). Had they taken out the tail, Bobby, in 63′, we would most likely be living in a much different country today. I remember well those times.

    So if Hillary wins, nothing is lost for them, it’s business as usual.

    The lobbyists keep their offices on K Street, the pharmaceutical companies keep paying them, the unions keep adding to their pensions and the lawmakers get their reelection bribes – I mean contributions – while we the underclass work two and three jobs and rack up a debt our children and grandchildren will have to pay for generations!”

      I keep coming up with the same answer as well. They are all on the same side because they are part of the establishment. In the end they will do whatever it takes to protect the establishment from an outsider because they find that outsider to be a threat to their power, and that is all they really care about.
