The “New” Civil War may very well be upon us in this day and age, with the mainstream media stoking the fires. They know full well that this will be the goose that laid the golden egg for them during this death spiral of theirs, and they’ll do anything in their power to bring the ruckus to fruition.
Remember, the media needs conflict to create a compelling product. Without that product, they can’t attract advertisers to pay their salaries and overhead. By agitating the American populace, they are guaranteeing themselves a payday. It’s not unlike an inside trading fiend making mince meat out of your 401K in order to buy his mistress that Lexus she’s been hinting at for her birthday, at least insomuch as both actions are completely wrong.
Meanwhile, the good people of America want nothing but a little peace and prosperity. We’re trained to value the pursuit of happiness, and with Donald Trump sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office, we have the prosperity part down….Now if we could only get the radical left back in line, we might have some peace.
That is precisely why the liberal left is on the minds of Congress this week, as the “Unmasking ANTIFA Act of 2018” comes up for debate.
Top Republican lawmakers have unveiled the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” a major piece of legislation that would carry a potential 15-year prison sentence for anyone arrested for wearing a mask and engaging in violent behaviors. As noted by The Hill, this is a major piece of legislation that could force the domestic terrorist group to splinter.
The bill was introduced last month by Republican Reps. Dan Donovan, Pete King, Paul Gosar, and Ted Budd. Under this measure, anyone who participates in violent actions while masked as an Antifa terrorist will be thrown in prison for more than a decade. That is something many, many Americans agree with and support.
If signed into law, the bill states that anyone “wearing a mask” or disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be hit with a major fine or forced to serve 15 years in prison.
The bill was made available online for the public to peruse:

The liberal left immediately went into meltdown mode on Twitter:
There's now an Unmasking Antifa Act, because chanting "Jews will not replace us" and waving Nazi flags was all OK, but being opposed to that is now punishable by possibly 15 years in prison. This government has some very… interesting priorities.

Well, Jake, maybe don’t riot in the streets every time someone says something that you don’t agree with, and you can go back to hiding your identity, okay?
The "Unmasking Antifa Act" is very concerning and reflects a willful misunderstanding of what "Antifa" is, but I have also been saying that the risks of fascism are not just in the streets.

Speaking of “willful misunderstandings”, Emily, have we got a piece for you.
This is extremely dangerous and could be easily misconstrued to target non-violent protesters! McCarthyism!

Well, Ms. Snowflake, even though you spelled it correctly, your Google search of “McCarthyism” someone still led you astray. Let me fix that for you.

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release
The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?
The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.
The Trump of Indonesia
Does all this sound familiar?
[The following was written by Flag & Cross contributor Steve Sherman.] Across the planet, the political establishment and their mainstream media supporters are being disrupted. While populist revolts were bubbling beneath the surface for years, the election of Donald J. Trump supercharged and empowered opposition to the ruling elite and set in motion a worldwide reset of our politics. The next bout in the international struggle against the establishment is playing out tomorrow in Indonesia. Incumbent President Joko Widodo ran a pseudo Obama campaign of “change and hope” in 2014, riding the then-dominant political strategy to victory in the world’s third largest democracy. Widodo now faces a challenge to his failed regime from Trump-like challenger, Prabowo Subianto. There’s lots to challenge. The economy has been stagnant. Corruption is rife. And Widodo has morphed into the very thing he ran against in 2014 – a corrupt potentate interested only in enriching his cronies and maintaining his power. Worse, Widodo has introduced into the mix the People’s Republic of China. Whereas his predecessors resisted the invasion of Chinese capital and personnel, Widodo has facilitated China gaining an historic stronghold in this archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands. While his detractors have yet to produce proof that Widodo has been personally compensated and compromised through infamous Chinese government payoffs, the invasion from the mainland has severely unsettled his political coalition. Further complicating matters for the incumbent is his inability to deal with religious intolerance in this largest Muslim nation. While Widodo tries to use the specter of Islamic fundamentalism to his advantage, he is undercut by his own missteps and those of his followers. The world continues to reel over the pernicious jailing in Widodo’s political base province of former Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, an ethnic Chinese and a Christian. Purnama has been imprisoned only because he is a…
