The approach to Civil War 2

This model forecast the US's current unrest a decade ago. It now says 'civil war'
By James Purtill

In the early 1990s, when Bill Clinton was in the White House and the United States looked unshakeable, the administration appointed Jack Goldstone to study how states fail. They meant other states; not the US. Few expected that his model would later predict their country's collapse.

In an unpublished paper submitted for peer review, Professor Goldstone, who is a sociologist, and Peter Turchin, an expert on the mathematical modelling of historical societies, have concluded that the US is "headed for another civil war".

The conditions for civil violence, they say, are the worst since the 19th century — in particular the years leading up to the start of the American Civil War in 1861.

The reason for this are trends that began in the 1980s, "with regard to inequality, selfish elites, and polarisation that have crippled the ability of the US government to mount an effective response to the

New strain of flu found in China has potential to become a pandemic, scientists warn

PUBLISHED TUE, JUN 30 20204:41 AM EDTUPDATED 3 HOURS AGO

The new strain is descended from the type of flu — known as “swine flu” — that emerged in 2009 causing the first global flu pandemic in 40 years.

The scientists published their peer-reviewed findings in U.S. science journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday. They said the new strain of flu, which they called “G4 EA H1N1,” is a variation of swine flu, and includes the “G4″ genotype that has become predominant in swine populations since 2016.

As with swine flu, the new strain has been identified as having “all the essential hallmarks of a

Duckworth for VP?

Biden’s best vice-president pick is obvious 
(if he gets the nod)
 Frank Bruni, New York Times  8 hrs ago

Whatever his wobbles, Joe Biden has, from the start of his presidential campaign, got one thing exactly right: The 2020 election is a battle for the soul of America. That’s not just a pretty slogan. It’s the stomach-knotting truth — and it’s the frame he should use for choosing his running mate.

It’s why he should pick Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois.

She’s a paragon of the values that Donald Trump, for all his practice as a performer, can’t even pantomime. She’s best described by words that are musty relics in his venal and vainglorious circle: “sacrifice,” “honour,” “humility.” More than any of the many extraordinary women on Biden’s list of potential vice-presidential nominees, she’s the anti-Trump, the antidote to the ugliness he revels in and the cynicism he stokes.

Americans can feel good — no, wonderful — about voting for a ticket with Duckworth on it. And

Trump's national security adviser lays out stinging critique of threat posed by China Past U.S. policy failures helped regime thrive, Trump aide says

By Bill Gertz - The Washington Times - Wednesday, June 24, 2020

PHOENIX — Decades of coaxing China’s rulers into moderating the communist system backfired and instead have produced the “greatest failure of American foreign policy since the 1930s,” President Trump’s top security aide argued in a major policy address Wednesday.
White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien said the failure was a result of misunderstanding the nature of the Marxist-Leninist system that guides China’s rulers to this day.
The Trump administration has begun reversing policies toward Beijing that it says ignored massive

They say that out of every bad thing comes a good thing. Ask any mother who has been through a 20-hour labor!
The same can be said of the criminal behavior of the Marxist-inspired radicals––Antifa and Black Lives Matters––that eclipsed the legitimate outrage following the horrific murder of George Floyd by a white policeman, Derek Chauvin, in Minneapolis, MN.
This crime called for reform of the Minneapolis Police Department, which had ignored 18 grievances against Chauvin. But that is not what happened.
Instead, the peaceful protests against this savage act were obliterated by the professionally orchestrated, bountifully financed rampage of the above-mentioned anarchists (writ: terrorists) through American cities and suburbs, leaving a massive swath of destruction that included dozens of black-owned businesses and dozens of white-owned businesses that employed black citizens. So much for Black Lives Matter!
What a beautiful tribute to George Floyd––God spare all of us such a memoriam!

It’s goal is to end liberal democracy and challenge western civilization itself.
