The so-called liberty movement is dead.
Well, not dead, but on life support. There are still hundreds of websites covering issues that matter while the faux liberty movement is busy doing battle with their ideological polar opposite—the alt-left, for lack of a better name.
For instance, alt-right journalist Mike Cernovich asked back in May during a White House press conference why the government is not doing anything about “violence by the left.” Cernovich retweeted his original tweet after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a baseball game in Virginia this week.

This is a valid question, of course, and it has a simple answer. Anybody engaged in violence for any reason with the exception of self-defense should be arrested and prosecuted. It doesn’t matter if the person in question is an Antifa goon or a criminal assaulting people and stealing their money.
This common sense approach is of little use to the alt-right as it continues to engage in a running battle with so-called leftists.
The left-right paradigm used by the elite to control the political landscape and make meaningful change impossible came back into play like gangbusters after Trump was elected.
Chuck Baldwin hit the nail square on the head:
Ever since Trump won the Republican nomination—and even more so since he won the general election—it seems we are right back to the old Republican vs. Democrat, left vs. right, liberal vs. conservative mentality that got us into this mess in the first place. It is to the point that major “patriot” radio talk show hosts are sounding more and more like Republican hacks such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. And so-called patriot websites seem to have lost their constitutional objectivity as well when it comes to Trump.
This has divided and marginalized the real liberty movement.
It’s a trick that seems to work without fail. Recall what the elite did to Ron Paul when he ran for president, or when the Tea Party movement was hijacked and turned it into a cheering section for the Republican party.
The same subterfuge worked for Trump. He talked about ending the wars, putting the squeeze on the Federal Reserve, rolling back NAFTA and other globalist schemes designed to strip mine America, and draining to so-called swamp in Washington. After he was elected, he expanded the wars, said Janet Yellen was doing a heck of a job, and signaled that he wants to “renegotiate” NAFTA, not deep six it. Trump packed his administration with CFR operatives and handed the Treasury over to Goldman Sachs and the bankers. His top economic advisor is a former Goldman Sachs crony.
The alt-right does not talk about this, or if they do it is little more than a rhetorical exercise. Instead, they concentrate on attacking the left. It’s become an obsession. Are leftists more of a threat than the international bankster cartel and the forever war state? Hardly.
The liberty movement was kicked to the curb the day Trump entered the White House. It has slid back into its ghetto after making substantial progress during the reign of Obama and the Democrats. The alt-right dominates the news and social media. The radio talk show host alluded to above has betrayed the liberty movement and sold it down the river.
It was naive to believe a billionaire casino and hotel magnate with zero experience in geopolitics and the byzantine inner workings of the corporate state would drain the swamp. The liberty movement is now in an untenable situation—back Trump and hope against immense odds for the best or step back and pick up where it left off before he was elected.
