Steve Bannon and the Fourth Turning
American Thinker, by Peter Skurkiss

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 4:51:41 AM

In its ongoing effort to counter Steve Bannon´s influence in the White House, the New York Times recently ran a piece essentially ridiculing Bannon´s for his admiration of The Fourth Turning (1997) by William Strauss and Neil Howe. As is the Times´ MO, instead of addressing the substance articulated in The Fourth Turning, it dismisses the authors as ´amateur historians´ and writes that their thesis is provocative and disputed. Well, yes, The Fourth Turning theory of history is provocative. And it certainly is disputed by those who are presently warmly ensconced in today´s establishment as well as their paid mouthpieces,

Good read but ominous. It points out what I´ve believed for some time in that it´s only a matter of time before normal people have had enough of the likes of the Commucrats and BLM and the angry, rioting snowflakes. All it takes is the right spark and it is going to get very nasty, but nobody ever said that removing cancer was a pretty job.

I cannot tell you how much this article resonates with me. It so thoroughly does so. To be a part of such events in these days, to some, is living. Of course, should (or ´as´) the ´crisis´ unfolds, actual experiences may not be all that ´pleasant´, but it does bring on the follow-on to our children and grandchildren: As the book summarizes, the ´high´ and the ´awakening´. As an aside, as cyclic as the fundamental oscillatory nature that governs all that is (whatever ´is´ means).

This theory seems a bit contrived. It works as a narrative, but perhaps that´s all.

And for sure, America does need a realignment. From the 60s to the present, the dominant ruling class has poisoned the foundation of the republic with their secularism, liberalism, and multiculturalism.

Normal politics will not correct this; the rot is too deep. Only a massive upheaval will bring the country back on course -- provided the right people are in power, which is to say, not the Democratic Party.


Fascinating. And it rings true.

No wonder Bannon always looks so tormented.

It would be nice to have normal conservatives around the President. Pence is too far down the hall. Sessions is down the street. Bannon is a possibly alcoholic nationalist, the Kushners are well-meaning but seemingly shallow NY libs and Reince can probably not get a word in edgewise.

I believe there is some merit to this, but I think it is lacking in historical global context. That is, it looks to me like the authors built their theory by looking at cycles in U.S. history (which is perfectly acceptable) but failed to match those cycles up to world events to see to what degree those cycles were global or not.

Considering the degree to which the modern world is globally influenced the failure to confirm that the cycles were matched up worldwide limits the reliability of their predictions. While I believe there is some truth to their cycles, I think that, as just two examples, China is lagging behind the West by about 20 years and Japan is in advance by about 10 years.

Ever mindful of the old Chinese curse -
"May you live in interesting times."

We are living in moderately interesting times, and the forecast seems to be getting more and more interesting all the time.

Historically interesting times, like the French Revolution, WW2, WW1, the English Reformation, the American Civil War and many similar eras can be very, very hard on ordinary folks.

Spoiler Alert - past generations did not have the instant communications of today. The book was written in 1997.

If our communications were limited - this may hold water.

There was a recent article about 70 different Soros organizations colluding on when, where and why to stage protests.

CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny described President Donald Trump´s address in Poland last week as a "White America, America First kind of speech" during a panel discussion Sunday morning. Trump´s speech in Warsaw last Thursday focused on themes of the collective inheritance and protection of Western civilization. This, Zeleny said, was not the kind of speech Trump could have delivered in the U.S., although he said it was one of his best speeches in terms of staying on a focused theme. "This is not a speech he could have given really any place else. This is a white America,

Arizona Sen. John McCain "sometimes" regrets his vote for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, especially in the wake of Tillerson floating the idea that the United States has been taking the wrong approach in Syria. McCain said on CBS Sunday said his vote in favor of Tillerson pains him on occasion, and comments Tillerson said made about the conflicting plans of the United States and Russia in Syria, which McCain saw as kowtowing to the Kremlin, are troubling. "Sometimes I do," McCain said when asked if he regrets voting for Tillerson. "But, I´m still torn by the fact that the American

To the absolute shock of most in the liberal media, President Trump was the one to bring up Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election during his meeting with Vladimir Putin on Saturday. In the lead up to Trump’s foreign trip to the G20 summit, many in the liberal media were claiming that Trump wouldn’t bring up Russia’ interference at all. But after finding out that he, in fact, did, they then switched to questioning whose account they should believe. “So, what are we to believe without an independent confirmation of either,” questioned NBC Anchor Willie Geist on Sunday Today. “Basically backing

Outgoing director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub on Sunday called a White House statement on the nature of his departure "ridiculous." The statement, provided to ABC News, accused Shaub of attempting to embarrass the Trump administration by way of "leaking, tweeting and writing letters to Democrat members of Congress" rather than addressing any ethics concerns to White House officials. On ABC´s "This Week," Shaub disputed the charge. "That´s just a ridiculous statement," he said.

The left´s war on Christianity

Do you remember the video that was played at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, “Government is the Only Thing We All Belong To”? The title of that video is the crux of the beliefs of the left, not just in the U.S., but everywhere. In contemporary America, Democrats have become congruent with the left, and the belief that the government owns us is a pervasive sentiment. Why is this? Democrats, as a political party, have literally denounced religion, particularly Christianity. At that same Convention in 2012, the delegates filled the arena with loud booing during the attempt to reinstate the

The former White House adviser, who has served under both Republican and Democratic administrations, initially appeared on a CNN panel calling Trump "presidential."

US President Donald Trump found himself alone at the G20 summit over climate change, as the other 19 members described the Paris climate accord as ´irreversible´. German Chancellor Angela Merkel today described the US position as ´regrettable´. She told reporters at the end of the two-day meeting: ´I think it´s very clear that we could not reach consensus, but the differences were not papered over, they were clearly stated.´ Merkel said she does not agree with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who yesterday claimed Washington could decide to return to the agreement, which aims to lower emissions of greenhouse gases.

Early on election night last November, artist Bunny Burson looked to New York City’s Javits Center ceiling, expecting confetti to fall to celebrate Hillary Clinton becoming the nation´s first woman president. But the confetti never fell. Crushed by Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump, Burson began an almost two-week journey to track down the confetti, which she thought would make great material for artwork. She used the confetti to turn a window at Bruno David Gallery in Clayton into a massive snow globe titled “And Still I Rise.” Her purpose? To flip Clinton’s defeat into inspiration for women and girls.

Hamburg, Germany - For years the United States was the dominant force and set the agenda at the annual gathering of the leaders of the world’s largest economies. But on Friday, when President Trump met with 19 other leaders at the Group of 20 conference, he found the United States isolated on everything from trade to climate change, and faced with the prospect of the group’s issuing a statement on Saturday that lays bare how the United States stands alone. (Snip) Ms. Merkel also pointed out that most of the countries supported the Paris accord on climate change, while Mr. Trump has abandoned it.

Retired basketball coach Bobby Knight was under a year-long criminal investigation after four women claimed he inappropriately touched them during a single visit to an intelligence agency. Knight´s invitation to speak at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) was already a controversial decision long before he appeared at the Fort Belvoir, Virginia, headquarters on July 10, 2015.
