Trump is silenced on Twitter, but he will have his first speech since leaving the White House on Sunday. A former senior adviser to President Trump, Stephen Miller predicts he will talk about the U.S economy, to open the schools back up again, and immigration.
Furthermore, he will talk about standing up against Communist China and the blue-collar working-class agenda. American conservative union chair, Matt Schlapp said that one of the reasons Trump was a great conservative president is because conservatives didn`t immediately go on the attack like so many others in the establishment.
Focus on the politics. Not the person, Matt said. This is probably why so many were blinded by hate. These people painted themself into a corner and stayed there for four years. That is painful and a big mistake.
Everybody is looking forward to Trump`s speech on CPAC on Sunday.
Some people claim that Trump in any way wished, desired, or encouraged lawless or violent behavior on January 6th and they said: «impeach 45.» The same people have repeatedly said that they want to impeach him in four years now. It started before he was elected.
We all know that these people are on the left side. But people on the right side are sick and tired of the hypocrisy of the left. This is not only happening in the U.S but in Europe as well. Who are these people on the left side that think they are above all others? Much better than others?
They are hypocrites.
Trump said on January 6th that people are on the way to peacefully and patriotically to march down to Capitol Hill. He also said, «Fight like hell.»
For the hypocrites on the left side, that was wrong. They claim it was an incitement to insurrection. So, they impeached Trump. Wow. What a great country America is.
American political journalist Michael Gerson says that political hypocrisy is «the conscious use of a mask to fool the public and gain political benefit».
Hypocrisy is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another or the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one`s own behavior does not conform.
In moral psychology, it is the failure to follow one`s own expressed moral rules and principles.
Hypocrisy has been a subject of folk wisdom from the beginnings of human history and the word hypocrisy comes from the Greek, which means «jealous», «play-acting», «acting out», «coward» or «dissembling».
We all know that Trump said «fight like hell», but the leftists aren`t any better. Videos show that they are a hundred times worse. But it is always difficult for the leftists to see that. The day after the inauguration, Madonna said she wanted to bomb the White House. Did someone say incitement to insurrection at that time? Nope.
But what would have happened if someone on the right side have said that? All hell would break lose.
Jesus tried to build a stable society with the ten commandments. You shall not kill. You shall not steal. But Pontius Pilatus and dark forces didn`t want to hear that and killed Jesus. Many belief systems condemn hypocrisy (that`s probably why conservatives care so much about it).
In Islam, Quranic Chapter 63 is often titled «the hypocrites». Hypocrisy is viewed as a serious sickness.
The Qur’an rails against those who claim to be believers and peacemakers, thinking they are fooling God and others, but only fool themselves.
In some translations of the Book of Job, the Hebrew word chaneph is rendered as «hypocrite», though it usually means «godless» or «profane». In the Christian Bible, Jesus condemns the scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites in the passage known as the Woes of the Pharisees.
Communists are godless. They dont believe in God. Nor in Jesus. They don`t believe in religion. The only religion they believe in is Communism.
Most people in America and Europe believe that people on the left side are much better than people on the right side. They also believe that people on the right side are stupid and racists, but all of that is a big lie. What we know is that people on the left side are hypocrites.
Hypocrites are very good at challenging the beliefs of other people, but when it comes to their own beliefs, they tend to protect them, not challenge them, Robert Wright said. Hypocrites are fairly accurate in their perceptions of others, but generally inaccurate in their perceptions of themselves.
Hypocrites tend to judge others by their behavior, but think they have special information about themselves. That they know what they are «really like», and thus effortlessly find ways to explain away selfish acts and maintain the illusion that they are better than others.
There is so much hate in the world today, but if people can be educated to see the shadow-side of their nature, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and love their fellow men better.
A little less hypocrisy and a little more self-knowledge can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Benjamin Franklin`s observation has been confirmed by recent studies in self-deception. In everyday reasoning, humans do little to get real evidence when taking positions or making decisions and do even less to get evidence for opposing positions. Instead, they tend to fabricate «pseudo-evidence», often after the decision had already been made.
Humans take a position, look for evidence that supports it, then, if they find some evidence, enough so that the position «makes sense», they stop thinking altogether (the «makes-sense stopping rule»). And, when pressed to produce real evidence, they tend to seek and interpret «evidence» that confirms what they already believe (the «confirmation bias»).
Moreover, some people tend to think highly of themselves, highlighting strengths and achievements, and overlooking weaknesses and failures (the «self-serving bias»). When asked to rate themselves on virtues, skills, or other desirable traits (including ethics, intelligence driving ability, and sexuality skills), a large majority say they are above average.
In the video above, Madonna said she wanted to bomb the White House. Cynthia Johnson said that Trump supporters need to be careful, and for those of you who are soldiers; make them pay. Maxime Water said she wanted to take out Trump tonight.
Johnny Depp asked; «When was the last time an actor assassinated a president»? A leader from the Lincoln Project said; «go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump». CNN said; «show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful».
Ellen asked Kamala Harris if she was stuck in an elevator with Trump or Pence. Who would it be? Harris said; «Does one of us have to come out alive»?
A Pennsylvania man got 20 years for threatening to «put a bullet» in Trump last year. Who do you think radicalized him? What about the Scalise shooter who appeared to be a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer in 2017? Steve Scalise nearly died that day. Did someone blame Sanders? Nope. Who do you think radicalized that man?
Did someone say incitement to insurrection here? Nope. Any impeachment? Nope.
Political journalist Michael Gerson notes that «There is often hypocritical deception involved in political and diplomatic negotiations, which generally start with principled, non-negotiable demands that are negotiated away in the process of finding a compromise.» Gerson concludes:
Hypocrisy is unavoidable and necessary. If people were required, at all times, to live up to ideals of honesty, loyalty, and compassion in order for those ideals to exist, there would be no ideals. Being a moral person is a struggle in which everyone repeatedly fails, becoming a hypocrite in each of those moments.
A just and peacful society depends on hypocrites who ultimately refused to abondon the ideals they betray.
Britain`s Iron Lady and Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had a speech on September 19, 1992, at the World Economic Development Conference regarding the European Union, and that speech is pretty amazing.
No leader is all-knowing and all-wise, but Thatcher had qualities of leadership, authority, charisma, and intelligence like no others. The speech was made at a time with no hysterical media mob, insane political division, and where the definitions of biology still applied to men and women.
Thatcher spoke of the failure of the ERM, the Exchange Rate Mechanism, a predecessor to the Euro, then warned about the Euro. Days after «Black Wednesday,» Thatcher admitted her mistake in joining the ERM.
In the speech, nearly 30 years ago, she correctly predicted a sequence of events regarding the Eurozone
The stability which fixed rates offered was a false one. It prevented currencies from adjusting gradually to market realities, and in the end, it produced wild swings of instability. There`s nothing new about fixed exchange rates collapsing.
What might be new is to finally learn the lesson that fixed rates don`t – and can`t – work in free markets, she said.
Furthermore, she said; Since countries differ in their level of economic development and potential, their fiscal policies, and their rates of inflation, the most flexible and realistic method of economic adjustment is a system of floating exchange rates.
It`s also interesting to note that she said; «Limited government, small government, honest government; these are themes not just for reforming the post-communist states but for getting our own economies back on track.»
What she had to say about the Eurozone is accurate and precise. She said; «If the divergence between different European economies is so great that even the ERM cannot contain them, how would those economies react to a single European currency? The answer is that there would be the chaos of the sort which would make the difficulties of recent days pale by comparison.
Huge sums would have to be transferred from richer to poorer countries and regions to allow them to take the strain. Even then unemployment and mass migration across now open frontiers would follow. And a full. fledged Single currency would allow no escape hatch.
The political consequences can already be glimpsed, she said, and she was right. «The growth of extremist parties battening on fears about mass immigration and unemployment, offering a real, if thoroughly unwelcome, alternative to the Euro-centrism political establishment.
If in addition you were to create a supra-national European federation, and the people could no longer hold their national parliaments to account, extremism could only grow further.
It is time for the European politicians to sit up and take note. Time to stop their endless rounds of summits. Summitry is fast becoming a substitute for decision-making, and observe the reality around them.
There is a growing sense of remoteness, alienation of people from their institutions of government and their political leaders. There is a fear that the European train will thunder forward, laden with its customary cargo of gravy, towards a destination neither wished nor understood by electorates. But the train can be stopped, Thatcher said.
Tomorrow, the French people will vote on the future of Europe. It is not for me to instruct them on French interest. But I must stress that the referendum is not a vote on whether we should have a European Community, but on what kind of European Community it should be.
Thatcher`s predictions were correct, and now nearly 30 years later, we have Brexit. Great Britain is out of the European Union. But it’s still a part of Europe and that`s what the question is about; what kind of European Union it should be.

Nobody expected Putin to show up at the World Economic Forum this time. Putin`s virtual address at the WEF was unexpected. But, they’re all there to make a better world and Putin warned that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated preexisting global problems and imbalances.
All these problems can come out of control, and these could deteriorate to a point where there is a fight of «all against all.» «We have every reason to believe that the tensions might be aggravated even further,» Putin warned.
Not only that. Putin also said that the times we are living in right now is similar to the ’30s, and I think he is so right. This is what I have pointed out for a very long time now. Just take a look at the history.
It`s similar to when it comes to the scale and scope of what he called systemic «challenges and potential threats.» Putin said the crisis had increased social stratification, populism, right- and left-wing radicalism, adding that domestic political processes were becoming more violent.
«All of this cannot but impact international relations, making them less stable and predictable,» Putin said.
«In the 20th century, the failure and inability to centrally resolve such issues resulted in the catastrophic World War II. Of course, nowadays such a heated conflict is not possible, I hope that it`s not possible in principle, because it would mean the end of our civilization.
But I would like to reiterate, that the situation might develop unpredictably and uncontrollably if we will sit on our hands doing nothing to avoid it.
And there is a possibility that we may experience an actual collapse of global development that might result in a fight of all against all,» Putin said.
Putin and Biden had a meeting on the phone on Tuesday. They come to an agreement to extend their current nuclear arms pact, the NEW START treaty, for another five years.
Today, Monday 18 January, it is Martin Luther King Jr day. People all around the world honor and celebrate him. A giant of the civil rights movement whose nonviolent resistance to the injustices of his era, racial segregation, employment discrimination, and the denial of the right to vote, enlighted the U.S and the world.
This day is coming only days after white supremacists stormed Capitol Hill, and killed five people. Jake Angeli, better known as «Qanon Shaman,» is one of those who stormed the Capitol, and he is also one of those we remember best from the storming.
Qanon Shaman is the man with his fur robes and horned helmet possibly the most photographed insurrectionist of the day, bore his position on his bare chest. What`s interesting to see is that he is tattooed with Norse and Viking symbols, in a far-right context, which evokes the whiteness of ancient Scandinavians.
Sloppy tattoos of Yggdrasil, or tree of life, covered his left pectoral. The Mjolnir, Thor`s hammer, emerged from his waistband. The walnut, the Viking «knot of the slain,» was inked over his heart. These are ancient Scandinavian symbols revived and twisted by 19th-century European nationalists and 20th-century Nazis, and their appropriation infuriates contemporary pagans and Heathens.
In the riotous crowd that stormed the Capitol, the «militant masculinity» of the Vikings has appeal. It`s very telling these are warrior images, at least in their heads.
Among the flags hoisted at the Capitol by insurrectionists, we saw the stars and bars of the Confederate battle flag, the defiant «Don`t Treat On Me» exhortation of the Gadsen flag, revived in the 2000s by the Tea Party.
Proud Boys was there with Viking-inspired tattoos as well. They were marching through the streets of D.C, bearing a shirt emblazoned with 6MWE: Six million wasn`t enough.
People are so confused by the bizarre appearance of some of the insurrectionists. Qanon Shaman remote from the disciplined masses we associate with, say, Hitler`s brownshirts.
The toxic combo of goofiness and fascism is simplicity American and has its roots in the Ku Klux Klan, whose members donned white hoods and robes as «ghosts» to intimidate African-Americans, who were seen as uneducated and superstitious.
This is not what the Republican Party stands for. What the Republican party stands for are Law and Order. Those who stormed the Capitol are not patriots, they are terrorists.
The insurrectionists came to the Capitol with symbols. Most of the were Trump-flags, but some of them had the Confederate flag, first swung on the country`s battlefields by secessionist states who saw their future in the enslavement of others; the gallows and noose, shorthand for the terrorization of African-Americans under Jim Crow as well as quick and dirty frontier justice.
The contrast to the Martin Luther King Jr day couldn`t better. In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr led more than 200,000 Americans in a March on Washington in pursuit of jobs and freedom for all people.
Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he called on Americans «to sit down together at the table of brotherhood» and meet our promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.
On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr, and throughout his life, exemplified the quintessential American belief that we will leave a brighter, more prosperous future for our children.
In the face of tumult and upheaval, Dr. King reminded us to always meet anger with compassion in order to truly «heal the hurts, right the wrongs, and change society.»
It is with this same spirit of forgiveness that we come together to bind the wounds of past injustice by lifting up one another regardless of race, gender, creed, or religion, and rising to the first principles enshrined in our founding documents.
Indeed, Dr. King described America’s Constitution and Declaration of Independence as promissory notes left by America’s Founding Fathers for «every American to fall heir.»
His dream, rooted in the American Dream, was that our children might be «judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.»
This dream, he hoped, would finally let freedom ring for all people.
As Dr. King stated in 1961, at the heart of his dream s «equality of opportunity.» For Dr. King, Trump said in a speech last year, the march toward civil rights is intertwined with economic empowerment.
Trump`s Administration has fully embraced this spirit, taking historic action to create jobs and uplift every community across the U.S and reaching the lowest unemployment rate for Black Americans ever recorded. (Editor: but that was before the virus destroyed everything).
Through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Trump`s Administration created nearly 9,000 Opportunity Zones that have produced more than $75 billion in new investment in distressed neighborhoods.
It is clear now more than ever before that we can no longer allow the American Dream to be deferred for Black Americans, Trump said. However, in this march toward equality, we cannot permit any «creative protest to degenerate into physical violence.»
As a student of nonviolence, Dr. King called on us not to «satisfy the thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.» In the national effort to achieve freedom and equality, and in this shared love of country, we must endeavor with all our might to meet the promissory notes endowed to us by our Founding Fathers, as Dr. King fervently wished, Trump said.
Last year, Mike Pence quoted King during an interview with CBS; «Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy,»
Dr. King is best known for his «I have a dream» speech, and a lot of people around the world share his idea of «dreams,» but some people on this planet think they could kill the dream by slaying the dreamer, but as the example of Martin Luther King`s life shows;
