‘We Can’t Take That Risk’ — FBI Officials Discussed ‘Insurance Policy’ Against Trump Presidency

Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

Andy is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

The text message is one of 375 released Tuesday night ahead of a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. (RELATED: Strzok Called Trump An ‘Idiot’ In Text To Fellow Mueller Investigator)

Several congressional panels have sought the text messages since their existence was revealed earlier this month. Strzok, who was a top investigator on both the Trump investigation and the Clinton email probe, was kicked off of Mueller’s team over the summer after the text messages were discovered.

It remains unclear why the existence of the texts was not disclosed until nearly four months after Strzok was removed from the Mueller investigation.

Strzok and Page’s exchanges show a deep disdain for Trump and admiration for Clinton. In a text sent on Oct. 20, 2016, Strzok called the Republican a “f*cking idiot.”

In final-hour order, court rules that Alabama can destroy digital voting records after all

Alabama is allowed to destroy digital voting records created at the polls during today’s U.S. Senate election after all.

At 1:36 p.m. Monday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge issued an order directing Alabama election officials to preserve all digital ballot images created at polling places across the state today.

But at 4:32 p.m. Monday, attorneys for Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill and Ed Packard, the state administrator of elections, filed an “emergency motion to stay” that order, which the state Supreme Court granted minutes after Merrill and Packard’s motion was filed.

By granting the stay, the court effectively told the state that it does not in fact have to preserve the digital ballot images – essentially digitized versions of the paper ballots voters fill out at the voting booth – created today.

The court will hold a hearing on Dec. 21 about whether to dismiss the case outright. By that point the state will have had ample time to destroy the digital ballot images legally under the stay.

Merrill and Packard’s attorneys argued in the emergency motion Monday that the two officials “do not have authority to maintain such records or to require local officials to do so. Plaintiffs therefore lack standing, the Circuit Court lacks jurisdiction, and the order is a nullity. Although a nullity, it will, if not stayed, cause confusion among elections officials and be disruptive to an election scheduled for tomorrow.”

Trump Continues Obama’s Wars Against Democracy

U.S. President Trump’s bold support for the apartheid dictatorship of Israel against that theocratic-racist nation’s non-Jews, fits into a larger picture of the supremacist nation that America itself has increasingly become. His immediate predecessor, Barack Obama, had repeatedly referred to the United States as being the only indispensable nation — that all others are “dispensable” — such as when President Obama addressed America’s future military leaders, at West Point, on 28 May 2014, by telling them:

The United States is and remains the one indispensable nation. That has been true for the century passed and it will be true for the century to come. … Russia’s aggression toward former Soviet states unnerves capitals in Europe, while China’s economic rise and military reach worries its neighbors. From Brazil to India, rising middle classes compete with us, and governments seek a greater say in global forums. … It will be your generation’s task to respond to this new world.

He was telling the military that America’s economic competition, against the BRICS nations, is a key matter for America’s military, and not only for America’s private corporations; that U.S. taxpayers fund America’s military at least partially in order to impose the wills and extend the wealth of the stockholders in America’s corporations abroad; and that the countries against which America is in economic competition are “dispensable” but America “is and remains the one indispensable nation.” This, supposedly, also authorizes America’s weapons and troops to fight against countries whose “governments seek a greater say in global forums.” In other words: Stop the growing economies from growing faster than America’s. There is another name for the American Government’s supremacist ideology. This term is “fascism.”

The reality, not talked about in public (since America isn’t a democracy), is that the United States Government propagandizes against foreign governments and then perpetrates coups and/or military invasions against them, in order to impose the U.S. empire’s dictatorial stooges, and then to crush whatever democracy had existed there. This U.S. fascism didn’t happen only in Iran in 1953, Guatemala in 1954, and Chile in 1973, but it happens also today, long after the ‘anti-communist’ excuse for it had ended in 1991.

Examples will be cited here, and the silenced lessons will be drawn from them, about the actual nature of the post-1952 U.S. Government — the global fascist victory that has increasingly emerged after the immediate ashes of fascism’s global defeat in 1945. This far-right, imperialist or “neoconservative,” international ideology has risen like a phoenix from those physical ashes of World War II, and has increasingly won — led by the U.S. Government — against the shrinking democratic world, and now seriously threatens to bring World War III to finish it, against the now non-communist lone nation of Russia, after the U.S. and its so-called ‘capitalist’ (but actually and increasingly fascist) NATO military alliance had won the ideological Cold War, and the communist Soviet Union broke up and ended its Warsaw Pact military alliance in 1991, while the U.S. secretly continued its side of the Cold War and has already brought into its anti-Russian NATO alliance virtually all of the Warsaw Pact nations, and all nations except Russia from the former Soviet Union.

The grim global reality is that the U.S. Government has become the world’s leading fascist nation. (And people around the world — outside the U.S. — already know it.)

When U.S. President Barack Obama came into office in 2009, one of the first international problems he had to deal with was a Honduran coup (probably — but not provably — pre-approved by the U.S. White House) that occurred on 28 June 2009, overthrowing the democratically elected progressive President of Honduras and replacing him with a junta who were selected by that country’s dozen aristocrats (or “oligarchs”), who practically own the country. On 16 October 2013, I headlined “Hillary Clinton’s Two Foreign-Policy Catastrophes”, and the main “catastrophe” detailed there was her having assisted those oligarchs (Honduras’s aristocratic families) to keep their new dictatorship in power despite the U.S. Ambassador’s cable to Clinton, from Honduras’s capital, informing her that there would be no legal way to do it. She ignored his comment, persisted at propping up the imposed regime; and Obama remained publicly silent and followed-through by his actions with his Secretary of State’s position, which position was to keep the oligarchs in power despite the opposition not only of the Honduran public but of almost every government in the world against the newly installed Honduran dictatorship — and the U.S. regime kept the coup-regime in power and thus forced the end of Honduras’s brief democracy — and promptly, and for years afterward, Honduras’s murder-rate and drug-trafficking soared.

Then, in February 2014, Obama himself perpetrated a very bloody coup in Ukraine overthrowing the democratically elected Government there and replacing it with a racist-fascist anti-Russian regime that promptly began a years-long ethnic-cleansing program to eliminate the people in the regions of Ukraine that had voted the most heavily — ranging from 75% to over 90% — for the President and legislature whom Obama had overthrown. (Getting rid of these Ukrainian voters was necessary to Obama because if they still lived in Ukraine, then the Obama-installed Ukrainian regime would quickly be elected out of office, and his coup-regime on Russia’s doorstep would end.)

Donald Trump constantly criticizes both Obama and Clinton for many things, but as the U.S. President he continues their most evil policies, and he sometimes imposes far-right policies that are even worse. One of the instances of this is Honduras, where Trump continues the aristocracy’s and Obama’s dictatorship, even in the face of its now especially clear recent repudiation by Hondurans at the election-polls: the Trump regime had actually trained the Honduran regime on how to rig the vote-count in preparation for the latest Honduran national election, which occurred on November 26th. However, since that election, the many public demonstrations against the official outcome, by courageous Honduran democrats and sometimes in the face of police bullets, are making unexpectedly embarrassing the U.S. dictator’s support of the Honduran regime’s crackdowns against the Honduran public.

Regarding the Ukrainian dictatorship that Obama had imposed, candidate Trump was anti-Obama, and on 1 August 2016 in Harrisonburg PA he said, about Crimea, “You want to have World War III to get it back?” (He assumed that ‘we’ had ‘had’ Crimea, but his pro-imperialist audience went along with that aggressive nationalistic and obviously false assumption.) However, on 2 February 2017, President Trump’s official policy regarding this matter turned out to be the exactly the same policy as Obama’s, when CNN headlined “UN Ambassador Haley hits Russia hard on Ukraine” and reported:

The US ambassador to the United Nations offered a strong condemnation of Russia in her first appearance at the UN Security Council on Thursday, calling on Moscow to de-escalate violence in eastern Ukraine and saying that US sanctions against Moscow would remain in place until it withdraws from Crimea.

“The United States continues to condemn and call for an immediate end to the Russian occupation of Crimea,” said Nikki Haley, President Donald Trump’s envoy to the world body. “Crimea is a part of Ukraine. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine.”

In other words: Trump’s policy is that only if Russia repudiates and rejects the 90%+ desire of the residents of Crimea to be Russians and not to be expelled from Crimea or else killed by the rabidly anti-Russian Obama-imposed Ukrainian dictatorship, will Trump even so much as consider ending the U.S. economic and other sanctions against Russia. This is Obama’s policy, and Trump’s policy. And NATO’s pouring U.S. and other hostile troops and weapons near and even onto Russia’s borders is likewise ‘justified’ by this position.

Trump likewise continues Obama’s policy against Syria, which is a nation that has long been a crucial ally of Russia, though not on Russia’s border as Ukraine is. Obama came into office with a secret plan to conquer Syria, and it was fully operational by 2012, when some dissidents within the U.S. intelligence community privately objected up the chain-of-command, against Obama’s then-increasing reliance upon Al Qaeda in Syria for providing the training and leadership of the U.S.-and-Saudi-selected-and-funded ’moderate rebels’ who were America’s “boots on the ground” to bring down Syria’s Government, which was and remains led by Bashar al-Assad. However, just as Victor Yanukovych had won the Presidency of Ukraine in 2010 on the promise of keeping Ukraine as a free and independent sovereign nation answerable only to Ukrainian citizens, Assad won Syria’s first-ever democratic election in 2014 by promising to keep Syria as a free sovereign nation answerable only to Syrian citizens — but as one that’s allied with both Russia and Iran, against the U.S. and its pro-jihadist allies. In repeated Western-sponsored polling of Syrians, even during the U.S.-Saudi-UAE-and-allied invasion of Syria by tens of thousands of imported foreign jihadists who demand Sharia law for Syrians, every poll shows that well over 50% of Syrian citizens want Assad to continue leading the country. But America’s dictators have different ideas.

As regards Ukraine, the U.S. stooge-regime is trying to outlaw the teaching and speaking of the Russian language there, and to encourage the takeover, by force, of orthodox churches (considered “pro-Russian”), by Catholic and Protestant ones there.

As regards Syria, the Trump Administration has repeatedly indicated its intention never to end the U.S. military occupation of Syria, though this would (if the U.S. military occupation of Syria were to become permanent like in Afghanistan and Iraq) entail a war, in Syria, between Syria’s invited defender Russia, versus Syria’s uninvited enemy the United States occupiers there, which would quickly escalate into a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia — WW III. The U.S. regime expects to ‘win’ such a war.

Ron Paul: US Elections Are Rigged, Voting Used To Pacify Public

Dr. Ron Paul says the American electoral system is rigged to keep “independent thinkers” from succeeding.

“I see elections as so much of a charade,” the former Texas congressman said during an April 11 appearance on RT America’s “The Fishtank.” “So much deceit goes on.”

Paul is no stranger to the twisted rules of the American presidential horse race. He ran for the highest office as a Libertarian in 1988, and in 2008 and 2012 as a Republican.

He arguably came closest to the nomination in 2012, when the GOP amended its party regulations to prevent the former Texas representative from stealing Mitt Romney’s thunder.

Rule 40(b) of “The Rules of the Republican Party” was changed so the Republican National Committee could “limit the visibility and power of libertarian-minded Texas Rep. Ron Paul at the convention and thus present a unified front behind Mitt Romney, the presumptive nominee,” according to David Byler, an elections analyst at RealClearPolitics. The rule requires that, in order to win the nomination, a candidate must have the support of a majority of delegates from eight states.

Although recent wins have tipped Sen. Ted Cruz past the cut off, the rule as written came close to helping Trump take the nomination. Paul warned that the GOP’s machinations to block Donald Trump are a sign of a corrupt, undemocratic system.

“I’ve worked on the assumption … for many, many decades, that whether there’s a Republican or a Democrat president, the people who want to keep the status quo seems to have their finger in the pot and can control things,” he said in the interview.

“They just get so nervous, though, if they have an independent thinker out there — whether it’s Sanders, or Trump or Ron Paul, they’re going to be very desperate to try to change things.”

Paul had nothing but scorn for Trump’s policies: “He’s offering us nothing new, and he’s going backward in many ways.”

He suggested that the 2016 election is “a lot more entertainment than anything else” because none of the candidates “have answers” to modern political problems.

Even so, Paul interprets the success of these outsider candidates as a sign that “more people are discovering that the system is all rigged and voting is just pacification for the voters and it really doesn’t count.”

“I don’t think there’s an easy way out for the establishment or the parties,” he noted, explaining that Democrats and Republicans would both rather risk “further alienation of the people” than allow a candidate to succeed who could shake up the system.

Paul recalled his own 2012 encounter with Rule 40(b) as an important political lesson for both himself and the American people.

“I was upset about it but didn’t want to waste too much energy being angry because this is the way the system works,” he said. “It’s a rotten system.”

Comcast and CenturyLink spent nearly $1 million dollars trying to prevent one community from even discussing community-driven solutions to broadband

ISPs like Comcast and CenturyLink spent nearly $1 million dollars trying to prevent one Colorado community from even discussing creative, community-driven solutions to the broadband competition problem. The spending comes courtesy of new ISP financial disclosures our of Fort Collins, where locals recently ignored ISP concerns and voted to begin discussing possible local, community-driven solutions. The vote arrived after years of frustration over substandard broadband connectivity and high prices thanks to limited industry competition.

Colorado is one of more than twenty states where incumbent broadband ISPs have quite literally written and purchased state protectionist laws prohibiting towns and cities from getting into the broadband business, even in instances where the private sector has failed to deliver.But Colorado is unique in that town and cities in the state have been able to vote locally on whether to overturn this ISP-lobbying-for- law, SB 152. And guess what? They keep voting to exempt themselves from the law, usually overwhelmingly.

Dozens of cities and towns continue to opt out of the restrictive state measure during local elections. More than 100 have done it so far, which should tell you plenty about how locals feel about their local broadband options. Fort Collins was only the latest, 57.15% of local voters voting yes on a ballot option that, again, only opened the door to discussing possible future community-driven connectivity options.

Paul Ryan Will Start Work on Legislation to Reduce the Deficit After He Finishes Passing Legislation to Increase the Deficit

If there is a single issue that has defined Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s career in Congress, it is debt reduction—and in particular, debt reduction through entitlement reform. So it was not exactly a shock when Ryan said this week in a radio interview that after passing tax legislation, Republicans would move on to overhauling Medicare and other entitlements.

“We’re going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform,” he said. He added, “Frankly, it’s the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt, so we spend more time on the health care entitlements, because that’s really where the problem lies, fiscally speaking.” Ryan noted, however, that this will have to wait until next year, after Republicans finish work on tax legislation. I suspect it will wait much longer than that.

That Medicare and other big entitlements are the largest drivers of the federal debt is uncontroversially true. On several occasions, President Obama made roughly the same argument, and was given nods of approval by the fact checkers of the world.

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) numerous reports on the nation’s long-term fiscal health are exceedingly clear about the source of our current debt load and the reason why it is expected to increase. Just to pick a recent example, in a long-term budget outlook released in March of this year, the CBO said that deficits are expected to rise over the next 30 years “because spending growth is projected to outpace growth in revenues….In particular, spending as a share of GDP increases for Social Security, the major health care programs (primarily Medicare), and interest on the government’s debt.” It is that simple: The debt will rise because the federal government will spend more than it takes in, and that spending will be concentrated on entitlements.

Ryan has pitched fiscal responsibility through entitlement reform for practically his entire career in Congress, so in some ways it is not much of a surprise to hear him return to what has long been a signature issue.

Still, it is at least a little—and maybe much more than a little—jarring to hear him hype a forthcoming debt reduction plan at the exact same time that he is helping to lead the charge on tax legislation that would almost certainly add $1 trillion or more to the debt if it is enacted exactly as planned, and much more if it is not, which Ryan himself has suggested is likely. Paul Ryan is basically promising to start working on legislation to reduce the debt—that is, right after he finishes working on legislation to increase the debt.

To be sure, deficit reduction is mostly a matter of spending reductions. But successful debt and deficit reduction efforts in Canada and the United States have typically paired large spending cuts with modest tax hikes.

The disconnect between Ryan’s stated objectives and his current legislative efforts is not exactly lost on his critics across the aisle. After hearing Ryan tout entitlement reform, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) griped that “Paul Ryan just admitted that after providing $1 trillion in tax breaks to the top 1 percent and large corporations, Republicans will try to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and help for the most vulnerable Americans.”

John Lennon Was Right: The Government Is Run by Maniacs for Maniacal Means

“You gotta remember, establishment, it’s just a name for evil. The monster doesn’t care whether it kills all the students or whether there’s a revolution. It’s not thinking logically, it’s out of control.”—John Lennon (1969)

Militant nonviolent resistance works.

Peaceful, prolonged protests work.

Mass movements with huge numbers of participants work.

Yes, America, it is possible to use occupations and civil disobedience to oppose government policies, counter injustice and bring about change outside the confines of the ballot box.

It has been done before. It can be done again.

For example, in May of 1932, more than 43,000 people, dubbed the Bonus Army—World War I veterans and their families—marched on Washington. Out of work, destitute and with families to feed, more than 10,000 veterans set up tent cities in the nation’s capital and refused to leave until the government agreed to pay the bonuses they had been promised as a reward for their services.

The Senate voted against paying them immediately, but the protesters didn’t budge. Congress adjourned for the summer, and still the protesters remained encamped. Finally, on July 28, under orders from President Herbert Hoover, the military descended with tanks and cavalry and drove the protesters out, setting their makeshift camps on fire. Still, the protesters returned the following year, and eventually their efforts not only succeeded in securing payment of the bonuses but contributed to the passage of the G.I. Bill of Rights.

Similarly, the Civil Rights Movement mobilized hundreds of thousands of people to strike at the core of an unjust and discriminatory society. Likewise, while the 1960s anti-war movement began with a few thousand perceived radicals, it ended with hundreds of thousands of protesters, spanning all walks of life, demanding the end of American military aggression abroad.

This kind of “power to the people” activism—grassroots, populist and potent—is exactly the brand of civic engagement John Lennon advocated throughout his career as a musician and anti-war activist.

It’s been 37 years since Lennon was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet on December 8, 1980, but his legacy and the lessons he imparted in his music and his activism have not diminished over the years.

All of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, corruption, harassment, political persecution, spying, overcriminalization, etc.—were used against Lennon. But that didn’t deter him. In fact, it formed the basis of his call for social justice, peace and a populist revolution.

Little wonder, then, that the U.S. government saw him as enemy number one.

Because he never refrained from speaking truth to power, Lennon became a prime example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority.

Lennon was the subject of a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment by the U.S. government (spearheaded by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover), in an attempt by President Richard Nixon to have him “neutralized” and deported. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose. What is more surprising, and ultimately more unsettling, is the degree to which the surveillance turns out to have been intertwined with electoral politics.”

Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of surveillance files on him. As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”

Such government-directed harassment was nothing new.

The FBI has had a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures, most notably among the latter such celebrated names as folk singer Pete Seeger, painter Pablo Picasso, comic actor and filmmaker Charlie Chaplin, comedian Lenny Bruce and poet Allen Ginsberg. Among those most closely watched by the FBI was Martin Luther King Jr., a man labeled by the FBI as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country.”

In Lennon’s case, the ex-Beatle had learned early on that rock music could serve a political end by proclaiming a radical message. More importantly, Lennon saw that his music could mobilize the public and help to bring about change.

For instance, in 1971 at a concert in Ann Arbor, Mich., Lennon took to the stage and in his usual confrontational style belted out “John Sinclair,” a song he had written about a man sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing two marijuana cigarettes. Within days of Lennon’s call for action, the Michigan Supreme Court ordered Sinclair released.

While Lennon believed in the power of the people, he also understood the danger of a power-hungry government. “The trouble with government as it is, is that it doesn’t represent the people,” observed Lennon. “It controls them.”

By March 1971, when his “Power to the People” single was released, it was clear where Lennon stood. Having moved to New York City that same year, Lennon was ready to participate in political activism against the U. S. government, the “monster” that was financing the war in Vietnam.

The release of Lennon’s Sometime in New York City album, which contained a radical anti-government message in virtually every song and depicted President Richard Nixon and Chinese Chairman Mao Tse-tung dancing together nude on the cover, only fanned the flames of the government agents who had already targeted Lennon.

However, the official U.S. war against Lennon began in earnest in 1972 after rumors surfaced that Lennon planned to embark on a U.S. concert tour that would combine rock music with antiwar organizing and voter registration. Nixon, fearing Lennon’s influence on about 11 million new voters (1972 was the first year that 18-year-olds could vote), had the ex-Beatle served with deportation orders “in an effort to silence him as a voice of the peace movement.”

As Lennon’s FBI file shows, memos and reports about the FBI’s surveillance of the anti-war activist had been flying back and forth between Hoover, the Nixon White House, various senators, the FBI and the U.S. Immigration Office.

Trump’s Middle-Class Tax Pledges Go Unfulfilled in Senate Bill

President Donald Trump and Republican congressional leaders are on the brink of achieving their top priority, centerpiece tax legislation, but only after a series of inaccurate claims and broken promises.

Lawmakers have made — and then retracted — pledges that their planned overhaul bill wouldn’t raise taxes on any middle-class families. Trump and his top aides have said the changes won’t cut taxes for the highest earners, statements that are demonstrably false.

And all of them argue that the proposed tax cuts, estimated to reduce federal revenue by more than $1.4 trillion, won’t increase federal deficits, an assertion that’s been contradicted by Congress’s official tax scorekeeper.

“The challenge is that there were a lot of promises made that can’t live comfortably with each other,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. “The biggest loser in all this was their commitment to fiscal discipline, which went away as fast as you can blink.”

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment for this story.

House and Senate GOP leaders are trying to hammer out compromise legislation for Trump to sign before the end of the year. If they succeed, their tax overhaul will immediately become the top policy issue in the 2018 congressional elections. Here are a few statements they might expect to see in opponents’ campaign ads:

No Tax Cuts for the Rich

WHAT THEY SAID: “Wealthy Americans are not getting a tax cut,’’ Gary Cohn, Trump’s top economic adviser, said Sept. 28 on ABC’s “Good Morning America.’’

“Any reductions we have in upper-income taxes will be offset by less deductions so that there will be no absolute tax cut for the upper class,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Nov. 30, 2016, in an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.’’

WHAT THEY DID: While the Senate bill would cut tax rates for all income groups, on average, higher earners would receive the largest benefits, according to the Tax Policy Center, an independent Washington Policy group.

Move the swamp? Trump administration wants to move government offices out of Washington

Amid the talk of draining swamps, restoring political might to blue-collar America and turning off the spigot of taxpayer cash that showers Washington, a familiar battle cry is ricocheting through this city: Move the bureaucrats out.

It has the ring of a Trumpian fantasy. Dislodge arms of the federal government from Washington and reattach them in faraway places, spreading the wealth generated by these well-paid agency workforces and forcing senior bureaucrats to face the people they affect.

But the idea has established populist roots that spread across party lines, and they are reemerging at this unique political moment.

The swaggering Interior secretary from Montana is putting the finishing touches on his plan to move the headquarters of three large public lands agencies to the West. The Stanford economist representing Silicon Valley in Congress sees opportunity to strategically seed regions of the country with pieces of the federal bureaucracy that can benefit them — and that they can benefit. The unlikely prospect of locating the Department of Transportation in Los Angeles is dangled by Republicans eager to show this crusade has bipartisan cred.

There hasn’t been so much buzz about getting “Washington” out of Washington since Franklin D. Roosevelt sent 30,000 federal workers to the Midwest after a presidential commission advised such moves would ensure the prototypical federal employee “remains one of the people in touch with the people and does not degenerate into an isolated and arrogant bureaucrat.”

“We need to find out what we can move,” said Rep. Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Youngstown, Ohio, who is seeking to create a commission that would identify parts of the bureaucracy that could be moved to economically distressed regions like his. A fellow Ohio congressman and political rival, tea party activist Warren Davidson, has mounted a parallel bureaucracy migration push. He calls it the “Drain the Swamp Act.”

The evening news and the gunslinger called Trump

Every television newscast: staged reality

The news is all about manipulating the context of stories. The thinner the context, the thinner the mind must become to accept it. If you want to visualize this, imagine a rectangular solid. The news covers the top surface. Therefore, the mind is trained to work in only two dimensions. Then it can’t fathom depth, and it certainly can’t appreciate the fact that the whole rectangular solid moves through time, the fourth dimension.

Focus on the network evening news. This is where the staging is done well.

First, we have the studio image itself, the colors in foreground and background, the blend of restful and charged hues. The anchor and his/her smooth style.

Then we have the shifting of venue from the studio to reporters in the field, demonstrating the reach of coverage: the planet. As if this equals authenticity.

Actually, those reporters in the field rarely dig up information on location. A correspondent standing on a rooftop in Cairo could just as well be positioned in a bathroom in a Las Vegas McDonald’s. His report would be identical.

The managing editor, usually the elite news anchor, chooses the stories to cover and has the final word on their sequence.

The anchor goes on the air: “Our top story tonight, more signs of gridlock today on Capitol Hill, as legislators walked out of a session on federal budget negotiations…”

The viewer fills in the context for the story: “Oh yes, the government. Gridlock is bad. Just like traffic on the I-5. A bad thing. We want the government to get something done, but they aren’t. These people are always arguing with each other. They don’t agree. They’re in conflict. Yes, conflict, just like on the cop shows.”

The anchor: “The Chinese government reports the new flu epidemic has spread to three provinces. Forty-two people have already died, and nearly a hundred are hospitalized…”

The viewer again supplies context, such as it is: “Flu. Dangerous. Epidemic. Could it arrive here? Get my flu shot.”

The anchor: “A new university study states that gun owners often stock up on weapons and ammunition…”

The viewer: “People with guns. Why do they need a dozen weapons? I don’t need a gun. The police have guns. Could I kill somebody if he broke into the house?”

The anchor: “Doctors at Yale University have made a discovery that could lead to new treatments in the battle against autism…”

Viewer: “That would be good. More research. Laboratory. The brain.”

If, at the end of the newscast, the viewer bothered to review the stories and his own reactions to them, he would realize he’d learned nothing. But reflection is not the game.

In fact, the flow of the news stories has washed over him and created very little except a sense of (false) continuity.

Therefore, every story on the news broadcast achieves the goal of keeping the context thin—night after night, year after year. The overall effect of this staging is: small viewer’s mind, small viewer’s understanding.

Next we come to words over pictures. More and more, news broadcasts are using the rudimentary film technique of a voice narrating what the viewer is seeing on the screen.

People are shouting and running and falling in a street. The anchor or a field reporter says: “The country is in turmoil. Parliament has suspended sessions for the third day in a row, as the government decides what to do about uprisings aimed at forcing democratic elections…”

Well, the voice must be right, because we’re seeing the pictures. If the voice said the riots were due to garbage-pickup cancellations, the viewer would believe that, too.

We see Building #7 of the WTC collapse. Must have been the result of a fire. The anchor tells us so. Words over pictures.

Staged news.

It mirrors what the human mind, in an infantile state, is always doing: looking at the world and seeking a brief summary to explain what that world is, at any given moment.

Since the dawn of time, untold billions of people have been urging a “television anchor” to “explain the pictures.”

The news gives them that precise solution, every night.

“Well, Mr. Jones,” the doctor says, as he pins X-rays to a screen in his office. “See this? Right here? We’ll need to start chemo immediately, and then we may have to remove most of your brain, and as a follow-up, take out one eye.”

Sure, why not? The patient saw the pictures and the anchor explained them.

Eventually, people get the idea and do it for themselves. They see things, they invent one-liners to explain them.

They’re their own anchors. They short-cut and undermine their own experience with vapid summaries of what it all means.

And then, of course, when the news cuts to commercial, the fake products take over:

“Well, every night they’re showing the same brand names, so those brands must be better than the unnamed alternatives.”

Which devolves into: “I like this commercial better than that commercial. This is a great commercial. Let’s have a contest and vote on the best commercial.”

For “intelligent” viewers, there is another sober mainstream choice in America, a safety valve: PBS. That newscast tends to show more pictures from foreign lands.

“Yes, I watch PBS because they understand the planet is interconnected. It isn’t just about America. That’s good.”

Sure it’s good, if you want the same thin-context or false-context reporting on events in other countries. Instead of the two minutes NBC might give you about momentous happenings in Syria, PBS will give you four minutes.

PBS’ experts seem kinder and gentler. “They’re nice and they’re more relaxed. I like that.”

Yes, the PBS experts are taking Valium, and they’re not drinking as much coffee as the CBS experts.

Anchors deliver the long con every night on the tube, between commercials.

Staged.

They’re marketing thin context.

There are various forms of mind control. The one I’m describing here—the thinning of context—is universal. It confounds the mind by pretending depth doesn’t exist and is merely a fantasy.

The mind, before it is trained away from it, is always interested in depth.

Another way of putting it: the mind naturally wants more space, not less. Only constant conditioning can change this.

Eventually, when you say “mind,” people think you’re referring to the brain, or they don’t know what you’re talking about at all.

Mind control by eradicating the concept of mind.

That’s quite a trick.

But now, on the national evening news, something has changed. The quality of the elite anchors has plummeted. These mind-control pros are less and less capable of delivering: the voice of authority.

In the old days, you had Water Cronkite, Harry Reasoner, Chet Huntley, Tom Brokaw, and (before he crashed and burned) Dan Rather. Big-time fakers.

Eventually, this devolved into a B-team of bench players: Dianne Sawyer, Brian Williams, Scott Pelley. Less believable—but still fairly effective.

However, now, at the three major networks, it’s androids on parade. Two pretty boys, David Muir and Jeff Glor, and the NBC cadaver, Lester Holt.

The ship is sinking.

Instead of trying to label their competition Fake News, the networks should look to themselves and try to figure out why they can’t find father figures to deliver their no-context broadcasts.

The audience is wising up. The correct notes on the scale of mind control aren’t being struck.

The system is falling apart.

When I named this site No More Fake News 16 years ago, I could see a fatigue factor setting in—not only in the mainstream news audience, but in the networks themselves. They were playing out the string, hoping to coast on their prior reputations. They weren’t just putting their viewers to sleep (their covert goal), they were slowly falling asleep themselves.

In the following years, the situation grew worse. The networks were moving on auto-pilot.

And now, they’re reaching the end of the line. They’re focusing on the only story that can deliver them ratings: Trump.

They fear him, they hate him—and they love him, because he gives them the numbers that justify their advertising rates with sponsors.

It’s always problematical when the only thing maintaining your survival is your enemy. Especially an enemy whose whole method of attack is to accuse you of subverting your basic mission, which is telling the truth.

And it’s far worse when he’s right.

No matter what you think of Trump, he’s delivering hammer blows to the foundation of network news.

I’ve been aware of every president since Roosevelt, and nothing like this has happened in that time span. A sitting president is virulently going up against The News. Not just the content—which would be bad enough—but the people delivering it.

Since the dawn of time on this planet, news has been controlled, for good reason. It’s the source of supposed fact. Important objective fact. The people who own the news have therefore been able to paint an overall portrait of reality for the masses. Which has been their intent.

In this age of science, the news has donned that cloak. “We’re recording events in the lab. We only relay confirmed results, checked and double-checked.”

And now this crazy cowboy hustler comes along, swaggers into the spotlight, and demeans the whole enterprise. IT’S FAKE!

And millions of people, who have long believed that very thing in the recesses of their minds, sit up straight in their couches and say THAT’S RIGHT!

Overnight, the situation turns surreal.

Up is down, down is up.

The bull is wandering through the china shop, deciding which object to crash next.

Naturally, the networks call him crazy, mentally ill, unfit for office, a Russian agent—while they’re reaping ratings from going to war with him. They have to strike back, and it‘s good for their desperate business to do so.

Whether Trump is, in fact, unfit for office is beside the point of the war.

The truth about Trump, whatever it may be, went out the window a long time ago. It was never in the house.

As the network news business was in a long slide from its former prominence, Trump showed up and stepped on its neck and ground in his heel. Impolitely, he spat in its face.

If you think the total effect was to draw people to Trump’s side, or to the networks’ side, think again.

People began swimming out of their hypnotic attachment to The News. The spell broke. Rudely. The swaggering gunslinger was showing up in their living rooms, accusing and laughing and setting off explosions.

And yes, you can separate that from everything else Trump has been doing or not doing, saying or not saying, committing or not committing.

And you should.

Because The News is supposed to be the ears and eyes and mouth and brain of the public.

And now—for several reasons, Trump very much included—it no longer is.

Which is a good thing, a very good thing.

Even if your hatred of Donald Trump knows no bounds.

CNN Botches Major ‘Bombshell’ Alleging Contacts Between Don Jr. And WikiLeaks

CNN misreported key details of an offer made to Donald Trump Jr. last year of a batch of stolen Wikileaks documents.

The story, which CNN published on Friday and covered extensively on TV, was touted as the first evidence that the Trump campaign was given a heads-up about documents stolen from Democrats.

But the story appears to have been riddled with errors, while also lacking key context.

Perhaps the most jarring error in the CNN report is the date on which Trump Jr. was sent the email. The network reported that a person named Mike Erickson emailed Trump Jr. and others on the Trump campaign on Sept. 4, 2016, with a link to Wikileaks documents as well as a decryption key to access them.

The email also offered access to emails that had been stolen from former Sec. of State Colin Powell, according to CNN.

But a copy of the email provided to The Daily Caller shows that Erickson sent the email on Sept. 14.

That date is significant because WikiLeaks had released a batch of stolen documents on Sept. 13. The group touted its release of the DNC documents, which were published by Guccifer 2.0.

The email shows that Erickson messaged Trump Jr. stating that “Wikileaks has uploaded another (huge 678 mb) archive of files from the DNC.”

“It is too big for me to send you by e-mail attachments, but you can download it yourselves,” he added, providing a link to the same website cited by Wikileaks the day before.

He also included a link to a decryption key that could be used to access the documents.

State Board That Fined Man For Criticizing The Government Without A License Admits It Was Wrong

Earlier this year, government entities in Beaverton, Oregon got fed up with a resident’s refusal to stop pestering them about problems with their traffic light timing. Mats Jarlstrom, a red light camera ticket recipient and consequential thorn in the side of local pols, tried repeatedly to get state traffic engineers to take a look at his research on yellow light timing. They refused. And they refused in a way only powerful bureaucracies can.

The Oregon Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying told Jarlstrom to shut up by issuing him a $500 fine for practicing engineering without a license. It was, of course, bullshit. Jarlstrom couldn’t alter traffic light timing and certainly wasn’t sending in bids for government work while presenting himself as an engineer. He just wanted to talk about his research. But the state board wasn’t interested in his work or his refusal to stop talking. Despite holding a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, Jarlstrom was told he wasn’t enough of an engineer to talk about subjects he’d thoroughly researched.

The Institute for Justice picked up Jarlstrom’s case, securing an injunction against the state board earlier this year. We’re another step closer to a full resolution in this case, as the state board has finally conceded it trampled all over Jarlstom’s rights in its efforts to get him to stop talking.

A state panel violated a Beaverton man’s free speech rights by claiming he had unlawfully used the title “engineer” and by fining him when he repeatedly challenged Oregon’s traffic-signal timing before local media and policymakers, Oregon’s attorney general has ruled.

Oregon’s Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying unconstitutionally applied state law governing engineering practice to Mats Järlström when he exercised his free speech about traffic lights and described himself as an engineer since he was doing so “in a noncommercial” setting and not soliciting professional business, the state Department of Justice has conceded.

“We have admitted to violating Mr. Järlström’s rights,” said Christina L. Beatty-Walters, senior assistant attorney general, in federal court Monday.

Soros groups registering felons to oppose Moore in Alabama election

Breitbart news claims that Soros-funded organizations have been working for months in Alabama to stop the election of conservative Christian Judge Roy Moore, the pro-life Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.

On December 12, Moore faces Democratic challenger Doug Jones, known for his radical pro-abortion stance. Breitbart claims that Jones is being backed by many American billionaire globalist George Soros’ organizations in the election. All of these groups strongly support abortion, LGBT, radical leftist agendas, and promote anti-Trump “resistance”.

Breitbart revealed that Jones “is tied to some of the specific organizations associated with the drive to register felons” in Alabama. Among them is the Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice. Jones also voiced support on his personal website of the Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative, another Soros-financed group.

Breitbart identified the man spearheading the campaign as Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, who “successfully registered thousands of felons across Alabama in recent weeks.” Glasgow is the president of the Ordinary People Society (TOPS) and former leader of the radical Free Alabama Movement (FAM), which has worked with many radical left organizations, such as the Industrial Workers of the World and the Anarchist Black Cross Federation. He is not alone in his efforts to turn Alabama blue.

His strategy was possible thanks to a new law passed this year by the state legislature. As The Birmingham News reported, the bill “signed by Gov. Kay Ivey in May, cleared the way for thousands of felons to restore their voting rights.” The law does not allow every convicted felon to vote; there is a list of crimes whose commission makes the perpetrator ineligible. The list includes murder, rape, soliciting a minor, and drug trafficking.

The state of Alabama wasn’t required to inform the felons about the legal change, but numerous groups linked to the Democratic Party sued the state to force it to do so.

According to Breitbart, last year the Campaign Legal Center, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama (ACLU), both Soros-funded, took legal action to force the state to inform convicted felons that they can vote. Over the last few months, they also have been registering people to vote in their legal clinics.

The ACLU has also worked with Glasgow’s TOPS and organized a Voter Rights Restoration training session in Alabama. Breitbart reported that the ACLU dedicated a special section on its web site to getting supporters to register for the Alabama senate race. The group also used Twitter to promote the voter registration drive in the state.

Other organizations, such as MoveOn.org and the League of Women Voters of Alabama, also have been working to increase voter turnout. Both are heavily funded by Soros’ Open Society.

Glasgow, half-brother of the Rev. Al Sharpton and described by the New York Times as a “onetime criminal,” envisioned a decade ago that if convicts could vote, “There would be a lot of difference in our legislators, our elected officials and our presidents that we’ve had.” He said, “It would definitely change the political spectrum of Alabama.” Glasgow now hopes that people with criminal records “swarming the polls” can give the win to Jones.

The Deep State Is Crumbling-Major Confrontations Are Looming

The Deep State is on the ropes due to some very clever manuvering by Donald Trump.

Last night, I was one of Darin Damme’s guests on his final show on KTAR 92.3 FM, the largest news-talk station in Arizona. Darin’s show was the top rated show, called Reality Check, in the State.

I appeared on air, for 2 segments, with Jon Ritzheimer. Who is Ritzheimer? He was part of the protest group who supported the Bundy family. He did nothing wrong except help a friend protect, within the law, their 5th Amendment property rights. Jon also had the misfortune of entering into a plea agreement and was sentenced to one year prior to the announced release by Judge Navarro in the Bundy case. In other words, nobody from the Bundy et al legal team saw the release coming.

As an aside, Jon has tremendous legal bills as one might imagine. I have invited Jon onto my show, The Common Sense Show, to tell his story and to help him raise money to pay his hefty legal bills. I will have an announcement as to when Jon will appear on my show. I already know that both my reading and listening audience will be very generous in helping Jon defray these costs. Any excess funds we raise will go to LaVoy Finnicum’s family. You may recall that the unarmed Lavoy Finnicum was murdered by the FBI without being given a chance to surrender and he had no arrest warrant issued on him as well. I will have an announcement on this site and on my show when this will take place.

Brief Review of the Facts

On November 26, 2017 in the late evening hours, I received a communication from an FBI agent whom I have I have known for decades. This person is disgusted with the Deep State penetration into their organization and occasionally tells me where to look for information that they think the public should know in order to spur a public reaction.

In this communication, my source wanted to inform me of an event that had taken place with regard to the Bundy Ranch and Oregon Wildlife standoffs.

By order of the President, DOJ agents, including FBI, paid the Bundy judge of record, Gloria Navarro, a visit. They caught informed her that if she did not immediately order the release of the Bundy’s, that was going to be immediately arrested for the following:

  1. Malfeasance of office
  2. Conspiracy to commit grand theft (uranium and other raw materials) from American ranches in the West. This was Navarro’s part in the Uranium One case against the Clinton Foundation.
  3. Violation of the Logan Act in which she conspired with Senator Harry Reid and his son for entering into, or protecting, a violation of dealing with unregistered foreign agents. These unregistered agents would be from the Chinese Army who are placing solar energy farms on BLM and rancher land across the west.
  4. Possible treason for her part in covering up the event in the trial as she denied evidence to be admitted in the trial that would have exposed this national security threat and would have exonerated the Bundy’s and their rancher allies.

i reported these events on November 27, 2017 and the announced release did not take place until almost 3 days later.

I am told that Navarro is caught on tape lying to the FBI, another felony, and she has received unexplained financial renumerations that she possibly benefitted from as a result of her actions on the bench.

An Army of Informants

I have learned that the DOJ is preparing to force Wasserman Schultz, Huma Abedin and Navarro, as well as others, to turn states evidence.The thinking on the part of my source is that the Podesta brothers are publicly going down first. The big question remains on whether Podesta will flip on Hillary Clinton.

It is interesting to note that Alex Jones is reporting that Special Prosecutor, Robert  Mueller, has been formally charged by the DOJ with crimes, including the delivery of highly enriched uranium to a tarmac of an airport in Russia. I reported on this event almost 18 months ago. However, my FBI source stated that they did not believe that Mueller had been formally charged. However, he is cooperating in lieu of being charged at this point in time. The reason that the DOJ would not charge Mueller at this time, is that if he were under indictment for his actions in these related events, he would have to step down from his role as special prosecutor. As of this date, Mueller is a useful idiot in this role because all of his “pretend” investigation into President Trump who is actually setting the stage to do criminal discovery of Clinton and others. Therefore, I do not believe that Mueller has yet been charged. However, he is compromised and is acting in the role of someone who has/will turn state’s evidence. Therefore I agree with Alex Jones in principle.

I want to remind everyone that this country executed the Rosenbergs for selling nuclear secrets to the Russians. Clinton et al, sold nuclear grade material to the Russians. Which is worse? This is why Navarro released the Bundy allies.

Although Mueller has not been charged, it is my belief that Hillary and McCain have been charged. Please refer to the earlier articles I have written on the ever-shifting walking boots that could be used to conceal an ankle bracelet used to track people who are charged and need to be monitored as a result of their release. The evidence related to the potential release of these two nefarious characters is circumstantial. However, when McCain switches a walking boot from one foot to the other, one has to raise serious questions.

Pentagon’s top weapons buyer to John McCain: ‘Excuse me, we hold people responsible’

Ellen Lord, the Defense Department’s acquisition chief, said Wednesday that a shakeup of department personnel overseeing weapons purchasing programs is already in the works after facing tough questioning from Sen. John McCain about government waste.

A review of staff in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and military services is looking at whether or not the department has “the right people in the right slots,” Lord told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“I will take action if there are issues, no question about it,” Lord, whose official title is undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology, and logistics, told reporters after the hearing. “There are constraints when you come into a government job, you cannot move anybody for 120 days and if you check on my 120 days it was just very recently.

“I think you should expect to see some movements,” she added.

McCain had called Lord and other top Pentagon officials before the committee for testimony on reforming acquisition programs, which he often condemns for wasting billions of dollars in recent years. His frequent targets are the Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier program and the Army’s ill-fated Future Combat Systems, which was abandoned years ago.

“There is no penalty for failure,” McCain told the Pentagon panel at the hearing. “For example, the $6 billion Future Combat Systems that never worked, can you tell me an individual or individuals that paid a penalty for that failure?”

Lord offered to come to McCain’s office to brief him in private on what she said were actions taken over the past few months but the chairman was unsatisfied with that answer.

LOCK THEM UP: Why it’s time to arrest James Comey, Robert Mueller, Peter Strzok and the other swamp creatures staging an attempted coup

An attempted political coup is taking place in America right now as sinister swamp creatures with names like “James Comey” and “Peter Strzok” are attempting to nullify the outcome of the presidential election and steal the country away from the will of the voters. These very same swamp creatures exonerated Hillary Clinton for her role in a series of serious national security violations while giving her a free pass on lying to the FBI (and the entire country). Peter Strzok, for example — a rabid anti-Trump swampster — is now credited with changing the FBI’s assessment of Hillary Clinton’s offenses from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” a monumental distinction in terms of legal liability. (See source links, below.)

Peter Strzok has been a member of the extremely corrupt Robert Mueller special counsel investigation team that’s attempting to ensnare President Trump on anything they can find (or fabricate) as a pretext to demand his impeachment. That investigation has been illegal from the start, as the Dept. of Justice regulations require a crime to be named before a special counsel is appointed, yet no crime was ever named to justify the appointment of the special counsel in the first place. Instead, the Mueller investigation was initiated as a witch hunt to try to find some crimes or engineer them in the process of the investigation. The General Flynn guilty plea, for example, stems wholly from the FBI deceptively interviewing Flynn under false pretenses, then catching him in a misstatement when he didn’t even realize he was being interviewed as part of a criminal trap. (Yes, you can be charged with a felony for merely lying to the FBI in a casual conversation, even though the government can lie to you with impunity.)

The FBI has become a rogue criminal operation

Now, the FBI is engaged in a massive cover-up, blocking information on Peter Strzok to make sure it doesn’t go public. “The FBI blocked all information on its website about a top counterterrorism official who was kicked off of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for sending politically-biased text messages to an FBI lawyer,” reports the Daily Caller.

Peter Strzok was a venomous anti-Trump swamp creature, we now know, just like all the other members of the Robert Mueller special counsel. As the Daily Caller reports, “It was revealed on Saturday that Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team in August after the Department of Justice’s inspector general discovered that he exchanged anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton text messages with his mistress, an FBI lawyer named Lisa Page who also worked on the Mueller team.” Via Daily Caller:

The revelation of Strzok’s biased texts is significant because of his central role in both the Russia investigation and the Clinton email probe. As the FBI’s No. 2 counter-terrorism official, Strzok helped start both of the investigations. He also conducted interviews with former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the Russia investigation and with Clinton and several of her top aides in the email inquiry.

Fox News is now reporting that the FBI is facing a contempt resolution from Congress for conspiring to withhold details about Strzok that show him to be an anti-Trump, pro-Clinton swamp creature working to ensnare Trump at all costs. “House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had demanded the text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer with whom Strzok was romantically involved,” reports Fox News. “House investigators have long regarded him as a key figure in the chain of events when the bureau, in 2016, received the infamous anti-Trump ‘dossier’ and launched a counterintelligence investigation into Russian meddling in the election that ultimately came to encompass FISA surveillance of a Trump campaign associate.”

“Today [Robert Mueller] leads the most corrupt, criminal and treasonous Coup D’état in American history,” warns The Gateway Pundit. “Today the FBI that Mueller ran is in shambles.  No one with an ounce of common sense believes that the FBI exhibits integrity and this is in large part because of the actions of Robert Mueller and his close allies who recently led the FBI.”

“President Donald Trump ripped the ‘double standard’ in how 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was treated and how Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser, was treated,” reports Corruption.news.

“So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday ‘interrogation’ with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times … and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?” Trump tweeted:

So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday “interrogation” with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?

The FBI is “out of control”

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson added to the warnings about the FBI’s deep state corruption, saying in a tweet:

The point is clear: the FBI is out of control and not just in the @realDonaldTrump investigation. An agency charged with enforcing the law clearly considers itself above the law. That’s a threat to you, and every American, no matter who you voted for.

Carlson recognizes that the Comey / Mueller / Clinton deep state system known as the FBI — i.e. “Fake Bureau of Investigation” — is demonstrating exactly how secret police organizations often get started:

This is how secret police start, when law enforcement agencies decide to do the bidding of politicians, rather than pursue impartial justice on behalf of the public. Let’s nip this nightmare in the bud right now.

“The FBI is a corrupt organization,” adds The Gateway Pundit. “There is so much corruption in the FBI that lawmakers are preparing contempt of Congress resolution against Deep State operatives for refusing to release material related to their Trump probe to Congress.”

On November 30th, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of FBI documents related to the Loretta Lynch / Bill Clinton tarmac meeting during which it is widely believed Bill Clinton ordered Lynch to back off any prosecution of Hillary Clinton. ” The documents show that FBI officials were more concerned about leaks than the actual meeting itself,” reports Judicial Watch. Via JW:

The new FBI documents show FBI officials were concerned about a leak that Bill Clinton delayed his aircraft taking off in order to “maneuver” a meeting with the attorney general.  The resulting story in the Observer is seemingly confirmed and causes a flurry of emails about the source of the article.  FBI official(s) write “we need to find that guy” and that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted “in an attempt to stem any further damage.”  Another FBI official, working on AG Lynch’s security detail, suggests instituting non-disclosure agreements.  The names of the emails authors are redacted. There are no documents showing concern about the meeting itself. 

The FBI originally informed Judicial Watch they could not locate any records related to the tarmac meeting.  However, in a related FOIA lawsuit, the Justice Department located emails in which Justice Department officials communicated with the FBI and wrote that they had communicated with the FBI.  As a result, by letter dated August 10, 2017, from the FBI stated, “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened…”

Just days after that secretive tarmac meeting, FBI Director James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton from any criminal prosecution. “These new documents confirm the urgent need to reopen the Clinton email scandal and criminally investigate the resulting Obama FBI/DOJ sham investigation,” adds Judicial Watch.

Yes, it’s time to criminally investigate the FBI.

“We’ve been saying for months that the investigation into alleged ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russia to ‘steal the election’ from Hillary Clinton was nothing more than a politically motivated scam,” writes JD Heyes for DeepState.news. “We knew that the probe was fake when, after more than a year’s worth of investigating by Obama’s FBI and Justice Department, no evidence whatsoeverhad been found – nothing. Just months of allegations, innuendo and unsubstantiated charges.”

Continuing for The National Sentinel, Heyes adds, “An angry Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has threatened the FBI and Department of Justice with contempt over their refusal to explain why special counsel Robert Mueller demoted a senior FBI investigator now believed to be a political enemy of President Donald J. Trump.”

Robert Mueller was complicit in Hillary Clinton’s approval of uranium sales to Russia-linked companies

The FBI, we now know, has been part of the cover-up from the very beginning. When Robert Mueller was heading up the FBI, he was complicit in covering up the sale of uranium strategic resources to the Russians. (See the Peter Schweizer book Clinton Cash for full details.)

“Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz introduced a resolution Friday that called for former FBI Director Robert Mueller to step down as special counsel for the “Russia investigation” due to the fact that he was directly involved with covering up Russia’s “significant and illegal” involvement with American uranium companies,” reports The Daily Sheeple. “[T]he man whose supposed job is to find out whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia was actually the head of the FBI when they covered up the fact that the country was “corrupting” American uranium companies while also purposefully stopping a key witness from contacting Congress about said corruption.”

“Mueller is a deep state operative,” concludes The Daily Sheeple.

“[A]ttorneys who worked for Mueller as head of the FBI during the Uranium One deal signed off on it despite the fact that the bureau had uncovered massive evidence of criminality involving Russian and American figures, up to and including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” reports Trump News. That article goes on to report:

According to Hannity, Fox News Legal Contributor Gregg Jarrett discovered both Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein and Mueller’s right-hand man, Andrew Weissmann, former head of the fraud unit at Obama/Holder’s Justice Department, signed the plea agreement of the Russian businessman embroiled in the Clinton-Uranium One case.

…Weissmann ran the Department of Justice’s fraud section at the time Russian operatives were bribing Americans involved with the company, and while vast sums of money were flowing into the coffers of the Clinton Foundation and former president Bill Clinton’s pockets.

This was all going on when Robert Mueller ran the FBI and James Comey was rising in the ranks. Now, the Mueller / Comey / Strzok / McCabe criminal ring is running the attempted political coup against Trump. And they’re all dirty. They’re all political hacks connected to Hillary Clinton, the Russians and the Uranium One scandal.

“For Mueller to hire all of these people who made so many contributions to Hillary Clinton was a decision of such arrogance and indifference to appearances. You just can’t have the optics of that and not have your work questioned. And [Peter] Strzok has just brought it to the fore,” former independent counsel Joseph diGenova told Breitbart News.

“Former FBI investigator Peter Strzok, who was pulled from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after it was revealed he exchanged text messages mocking President Trump, was reportedly behind the decision to change then-FBI Director James Comey’s description of Hillary Clinton’s email use from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,’” writes Adam Shaw for Breitbart. “Also on Monday, the Sean Hannity Radio Show published an exclusive report by Circa’s Sara Carter on the bureau’s interviews of former national security advisor Michael Flynn—who last week pled guilty to lying to the FBI during those interviews. According to Carter, Strzok was one of two agents who interviewed Flynn in January at the White House.”

“FBI agent Peter Strzok was one of two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, which took place on Jan. 24, at the White House,” reports Hannity.com:

Strzok was removed from his role in the Special Counsel’s Office after it was discovered he had made disparaging comments about President Trump in text messages between him and his alleged lover FBI attorney Lisa Page, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, which first reported the stories. Strzok is also under investigation by the Department of Justice Inspector General for his role in Hillary Clinton’s email server and the ongoing investigation into Russia’s election meddling. On Saturday, the House Intelligence Committee’s Chairman Devin Nunes chided the Justice Department and the FBI for not disclosing why Strzok had been removed from the Special Counsel three months ago, according to a statement given by the Chairman.

In other words, under the influence of political hacks like Peter Strzok, the FBI has been running a political watch hunt to destroy President Trump while covering up the serious crimes of Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller.

How Hillary Clinton gets away with lying to the FBI and everybody else

Hillary Clinton is an accomplished, expert liar. She’s so experienced at lying that she has mastered the art of lying while technically telling the truth. For example, when asked whether she used her illegal email server to receive and send classified information via unsecured email, her answer is carefully parsed: “I never sent or received any information that was marked classified.”

Note the qualifier she uses: “marked classified.”

As it turns out, most classified information isn’t marked as classified. And no markings are required for material to be deemed classified. All sorts of information is qualified as “classified” with no markings whatsoever, and this is the kind of information she illegally sent and received on her private email server. Yet technically she isn’t lying when she says she never forwarded information that was “marked classified” because it wasn’t marked. But it was classified nonetheless.

To date, there isn’t a single journalist in the legacy media that has challenged Hillary Clinton on this point. And the FBI exonerated her from a long list of felony crimes with the outrageous excuse that they couldn’t find “intent” on her part to break the law. Yet simultaneously, General Flynn is given no quarter for lack of “intent” when it comes to lying to the FBI. He’s charged with the full force of the law. The FBI’s enforcement of laws is directed solely at Trump administration officials while granting absolute immunity to Obama-era officials and Hillary Clinton herself.

Former lawmaker Jason Chaffetz has confirmed that Hillary Clinton lied during her July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI, saying, “Clearly Hillary Clinton did lie under oath. When Roger Clemons supposedly lied under oath the Department of Justice indicted him, but Hillary Clinton not so much…”

Conclusion: It’s time to ARREST Robert Mueller, James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok and the rest of the lawless gang trying to overthrow America

The deep state despises free elections, and if We the People elect a candidate they don’t like, they will do everything in their power to attempt to overthrow the results of that election and install their own complicit deep state operative (i.e. Hillary Clinton).

Today, the FBI is not just waging a coup against the duly-elected Trump administration; it’s waging a coup against the will of the people. To pull off that coup, the FBI and its deep state gang are fabricating everything from the so-called “Trump dossier” to fake news “leaks” that get written up as facts by the complicit Washington Post, a fake news rag that knowingly fabricates false sources in its attempts to destroy President Trump.

If the Mueller / Comey / Clinton deep state gang manages to throw Trump out of office, they will have successfully overthrown our country and seized power through a totalitarian political coup. They will have also proven that elections are meaningless — nothing more than theater — because when the people elect a candidate the deep state doesn’t like, the bureaucracy will find a way to nullify the election and install their own criminal-in-chief.

That’s why it is crucial that We the People call for a special investigation into the Robert Mueller investigators, including James Comey, Peter Strzok and all the other swamp creatures who are part of this staged theater of false justice. These are the people who need to be locked up behind bars, not well-meaning Americans like General Flynn.

What’s at stake here is the future of our nation and our individual freedoms. If we don’t resist the deep state’s nefarious attempt to nullify our democratic election outcomes, they will install a totalitarian regime with absolute power, running a “secret police” FBI Stasi apparatus that criminalizes political enemies of the corrupt regime in power. The FBI, in other words, has become to the new KGB.

The day is fast approaching when all Americans may be called to action to defend their nation against the corrupt deep state. Stay tuned to this website. A massive armed citizens’ march on Washington D.C. to find and arrest the deep state swamp creatures is a very likely result if these anti-American tyrants manage to remove Trump from office. It’s not hard to predict that civil warwill quickly follow. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. This is why we must investigate and arrest the deep state swamp creatures right now, before this escalates to open bloodshed in the streets.

We the People will not tolerate our country being stolen by corrupt, evil swamp creatures like Mueller, Comey and Clinton. LOCK THEM UP and drain the swamp in the process.

The Deep State Plot to Conquer America Is On Full Display

In the previous parts of this series, it was established that the Bundy’s judge, Gloria Navarro, was running interfernce for Obama and protecting Harry Reid. Her illegal conduct and unconstitutional behavior in the trial, served to direct attention away from the use of rancher’s land, like the Bundy land, in which uranium was being extracted and sold to the Russians in the now labeled “Uranium One” scandal in which the Clinton Foundation was profiteering from treason against the people of the United States. History will judge the Uranium One scandal to be the biggest scandal in the history of the United States.

Additionally, it was established in the previous part of this series that Obama administration facilitated, through people like Senator Harry Reid and his son, paid almost $5 million dollars, to oversee the intrusion of Chinese military front groups on to rancher’s lands, near airbases, whose aircraft would repel any type of Red Dawn invasion. The Chinese were using the installation of solar energy farms as the cover. These solar energy farms still exist and are growing at an exponential rate in places like California and are deeply embedded in the CALEXIT movement.

This story broke when I was informed that the Bundy’s were being ordered to be released and I received this information from an FBI informant almost 3 days before Navarro’s ruling. Through DOJ forces loyal to Trump,  Navarro was threatened for prosecution for malfeasance of office, obstruction of justice, malicious prosecution and treason. There is no question that this rogue judge will be turning state’s evidence at a future date.

Based upon my previous research and the development of the facts as they presently exist in this case, it is clear that Navarro’s actions were facilitating, in part, a planned invasion of the southern underbelly of the United States in what is often called a “Red Dawn” invasion.

The invasion will come in two parts:

  1. Fifth column forces (UN forces, rogue elements of the CIA, Chinese soldiers, Russian soldiers, MS-13, ISIS and various drug cartels will carry out a series of escalating false flag attacks, some of which have already happened (eg Vegas and Sutherland Springs, TX.). Their goal is destroy law and order, destroy infrastructure and throw the country into chaos and to weaken the country in order to make it vulnerable to invasion.
  2. After some future precipitating event, a Red Dawn invasion will attack America from the Southern underbelly. This article will demonstrate that these divergent forces have already been armed and trained by the Russians. Central and South American organizations like CELAC have rejected the US and Canada and refuse to even meet with officials from our country thanks to Obama’s failed presidency which served to alienate nearly everyone of our neighbors. On a predetermined signal these forces will be unleashed, combined with the domestic 5th column UN forces and terrorists oranizations already within the United States, they will join forces with the Red Dawn forces as they invade the United States. Based on the recent fires and mass public executions, I believe we are seeing the implementation of this plan right before our very eyes.

This article will detail the composition of these Red Dawn forces, but make no mistake about it, these forces represent Russia and have been organized by Russia. And many of your leaders  (Reid, Pelosi, Obama, Clinton, et al) have conspired to make this happen.

Meet the “Red Dawn” invasion force in which it appears that China will be given the lead along with the Russians.

The Chinese Will Have Help from Russia and Her Allies in Central and South America

While we slept, former President Obama alienated all of our allies in Latin America. Former Secretary of State Clinton took actions that led to the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. The President of Bolivia’s plane was forced to land by American jets, because they thought Ed Snowden was on board (please note: This was an act of war). And of course, we know the fate of Hugo Chavez stemming from his defiance to this administration’s imperialism and his “El Diablo” comments directed at several American leaders, most notably, George Bush.

The 33 Central and South American nation organization known as CELAC are combining forces and will form the vanguard of an attacking Army moving north and entering the United States through Mexico.

Nicaragua

According to a March 2014 report by the Strategic Culture Foundation, a progressive, pro-Russian think tank, Nicaragua’s quoted former Sandista leader, Daniel Ortega, who reinstalled himself in 2007 as the Nicaraguan leader stated that  “We are very grateful and very much appreciate the Russian people’s support of our country.” Ortega has accepted the arrival of two Russian strategic bombers and added that more will be on the way as Russia announced that Nicaragua has announced that it will accept routine Russian patrols in both its Caribbean and Pacific ports as well as participating in the joint training of military personnel. Russia and Nicaragua have moved in the direction of a strategic economic and military relationship. In October 2013, for example, Nicaragua and Russia signed a memorandum of international security cooperation. Russia’s Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev noted during his visit to Nicaragua that “Nicaragua is an important partner and friend of Russia in Latin America,” pointing to the coincidence of views of the two countries’ authorities on many issues.”

DC pharmacy delivers Alzheimer’s drugs to Congress

Citing an article in STAT (which requires a submission to read), Christina Prignano reports for the Boston Globe, Oct. 11, 2017, that Grubb’s Pharmacyin Washington, DC, said it has a cozy arrangement with members of Congress whereby it delivers drugs to their attending physicians so that the legislators can avoid making the trip themselves.

The drugs include prescriptions to treat the incurable Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of senile dementia.

Grubb’s Pharmacy is located at 326 E Capitol St. NE, Washington, DC 20003, just a couple of blocks from Congress and the Supreme Court.

In an interview with STATMike Kim, the owner of Grubb’s Pharmacy, said:

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country. It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Under Congress’ health care plan, lawmakers pay just $600 a year for access to their attending physician, and by extension, the deliveries made by Kim’s pharmacy.

H/t FOTM‘s CP

There are three main phases of Alzheimer’s — mild, moderate, and severe. Each stage has its own set of symptoms (WebMD):

(1) Mild Alzheimer’s: This first stage usually lasts from 2 to 4 years. The symptoms include:

  • Having less energy and drive to do things
  • Less interest in work and social activities and spending more time just sitting, watching TV, or sleeping
  • Loss of recent memories, like forgetting conversations and events that just happened.
  • Language problems, like trouble putting their thoughts into words or understanding others.
  • Mild coordination problems, such as trouble writing or using familiar objects.
  • A hard time with everyday tasks, such as following a recipe or balancing a checkbook.
  • Mood swings that involve depression or a lack of interest.
  • Trouble with driving, like getting lost on familiar routes.

(2) Moderate Alzheimer’s: This stage can last from 2 to 10 years. The symptoms include:

  • Memory loss gets worse and starts to cause problems in daily life:
    • Forget details about their life, like when they got married or where they went to high school.
    • May not recognize or remember family members and friends.
    • May forget where they leave things and can’t retrace the steps to find them.
  • Worsening language problems, including:
    • Rambling speech.
    • Trouble coming up with the right words and using the wrong ones.
  • A hard time planning or solving problems.
  • Confusion about time or place: may get lost in places they’ve been before; once there, may not know how or why they got to that place.
  • Not dressing appropriately for the weather. (See “Former John Conyers’ aide says most of them have seen him in his underwear and it’s ‘no big deal’“)
  • Getting angry or upset easily, sometimes lashing out at family or caregivers. (See “John McCain goes postal on Syrian Christians“)
  • Trouble sleeping.
  • Wandering.
  • Delusions, such as thinking a caregiver is trying to hurt them.

(3) Severe Alzheimer’s: This last stage typically lasts 1 to 3 years. People in this phase may have some or all of these symptoms:

  • Major confusion about what’s in the past and what’s happening now.
  • Can’t express themselves, remember, or process information.
  • Problems with swallowing and control of their bladder and bowels.
  • Weight loss, seizures, skin infections, and other illnesses.
  • Extreme mood swings.
  • Seeing, hearing, or feeling things that aren’t really there, called hallucinations.
  • Can’t move easily on their own.

Below is a video of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on June 25, 2017, which shows her looking gaunt and sunken-cheeked, struggling to communicate, gesticulating wildly and futilely with her hands, repeatedly stopping in mid-sentence and staring at the audience in brain freezes. (See “Does Nancy Pelosi have senile dementia?“)

Analyst: Trump Team Colluded with Israel, Not Russia, in Flynn-Kislyak Talks

PHOTO CREDIT: PIXABAY

Former adviser to US President Donald Trump Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. Some have taken this revelation as evidence of collusion between the Trump transition team and the Israeli government – not Russia, as many mainstream outlets have claimed

Eugene Puryear and Sean Blackmon, hosts of By Any Means Necessary on Sputnik Radio, spoke to Max Blumenthal, author and journalist as well as the senior editor of progressive website AlterNet.

Well, [Department of Justice Special Counsel] Robert Mueller and his team of 17 super lawyers has finally found that the Trump transition team colluded with a foreign power to subvert America’s political system,” Blumenthal began. “Actually, they colluded with a foreign power to undermine a sitting American president. You would think there’d be a lot more outrage about this. I actually subjected myself to 30 minutes of Rachel Maddow last night to see if she would actually touch this issue, and she didn’t — because that country is Israel.”

“Michael Flynn really had discussed three orders of business with Sergey Kislyak, then the Russian ambassador to the US. The first of was US-Russian cooperation in Syria to defeat al-Qaeda and [Daesh], which actually is kind of controversial in Washington, especially among the Obama national security officials who had a hand in the program to arm and equip Syrian rebels who are allied with al-Qaeda. But that doesn’t show collusion.”

“The other point was Flynn egging Kislyak to have Russia not retaliate for US sanctions that were imposed under Obama because of unproven allegations that Russia hacked the DNC,” said Blumenthal. “What you have there is Flynn attempting to influence Russia, not the other way around — again, the collusion narrative is undermined.”

“But then you have a final point where Flynn is asking Kislyak to assert his authority to have Russia veto a United Nations resolution condemning Israel for settlement activity [in the West Bank] — a resolution that Obama planned to abstain from and allow to pass as kind of a final ‘screw you’ to [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu.”

The resolution, UN Security Council Resolution 2334, condemned the building of Israeli settlements in the West Bank as a “flagrant violation” of international law. Fourteen of the 15 members of the Security Council voted in favor of the resolution, including Russia. Only one state, the US, abstained.

“We learned that Flynn was acting here on behalf of Jared Kushner, the presidential son-in-law who is also the son of Charles Kushner, a longtime friend of Benjamin Netanyahu whose family foundation has funded Israeli settlements,” added Blumenthal. “He has basically helped support the political empire of Benjamin Netanyahu for years — in fact, when Jared Kushner was a teenager, he’d have to get up and leave his bedroom when Netanyahu was in town because Netanyahu would stay literally in his bed with his family when he was on trips to New York.”

“So this relationship with Netanyahu is what all the Israeli government drew on to turn the Trump transition team into its own personal vehicle to attempt to attack Barack Obama and the sitting American administration. This is as clear a case of collusion against an American president with a foreign power that I’ve ever seen in my life, and we’re hearing not dead silence, but it’s being treated as business as usual.”

Blackmon pointed out that many mainstream liberal outlets and voices claimed Flynn’s indictment as a huge victory for the collusion investigation — but the volume quickly dropped as these voices realized that Flynn’s actions did not point to collusion.

Blumenthal concurred. “This pattern is dangerous because you see these stories come out but eventually get retracted it or corrected, but the retraction is buried and so people are left with the impression that there is something there, that this is a huge story, and that Trump is going down.”

“So the Russiagate investigation continues and all of the damage that it caused diplomacy between the US and Russia simply deepens, all as a result of the of anti-Russian atmosphere that’s been cultivated in Washington by this opportunistic and deeply unprofessional media as well as by the Democrats that are desperate to explain away their miserable failure to win against the most beatable candidate probably that’s ever existed in my lifetime.”

American Calamity – Get Ready for the Day of Reckoning

The America we once knew is gone forever. The 21st century has dawned just as the true light of liberty fades into shadow. The sooner the world recognizes this, the better off humankind will be. RussiaGate, Bill and Hillary Clinton revelations, Donald Trump’s quasi-populist misdirect, and a great nation turned amoral, this and much more forewarn of a cataclysm.

I’ll tell you about the instant I gave up on America ever being great again. When my oldest friend failed to reach me on Skype a few weeks back, a strange reconnect on his device put me in the position of a fly on the wall with he and two other high school friends. At first, I thought my old friend and I were connected as per usual, on a conference call. Then, when I realized I could hear them without the trio hearing me, the real American tragedy unfolded. The realization struck me hard, I’ll tell you. Listening to old pals discuss my new book that debunks many RussiaGate lies, “Putin’s Praetorians” met with nasty and harsh criticism without my chums having even read what is inside. Their obtuse and unfair criticism made me finally realized Vladimir Putin and the Russian people have no chance whatsoever – no chance of ever being friends with the United States of America. Three intelligence college graduates, professional men, demonstrated the utter ignorance of a people. Some of my closest friends shouted in my ears that day; “the propaganda worked – CNN has already won.”I know this is a harsh reality for many of you to accept. Losing hope is not something to take lightly. But get ready, the war will come eventually.

When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election the hopeful among us considered his victory a successful populist revolt against the Washington swamp of globalists. Trump swore to us he would take on the technocrats and the elites in favor of the “forgotten of America” – and the new president sold himself as a man of the people. However, billionaires are not ordinary people, and we should all have remembered this. Many of us voted Trump just to keep a certified psychopath from winning, but Trump and Clinton are nothing more than symptoms of a far more widespread contagion. Now let me describe the infectious host my country has become, and a bit on how Lady Liberty will finally succumb.

The United States of America is the modern and digitalized Rome. Just why we were not taught this in grade school, it escapes me. After all, we always believed our teachers and trusted them to tell us the truth. The unarguable fact that Americans have been the most privileged people on Earth since World War II. But we were told for decades that our privilege was due to our industriousness, our intelligence, and because God had blessed us. In the 1950’s and early 1960’s this may have really been true. For those who recall that we made stuff back then, and that we conformed more often to our religious convictions, my meaning here is clear to you. We Americans benefitted largely because of our hard work back then, and not sometimes because of brilliant industrialists too.  Then the two Kennedy brothers were shot and killed, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X were assassinated, and Lyndon Baines Johnson and his boys carried us into Vietnam. In the meantime, those of us too young (or chicken) to fight in southeast Asia, we got our fill of Woodstock, a popular anti-war movement and the hippie revolution, and decades of drug culture that nobody talks about much these days. But this component of the American metamorphosis is far too important and massively deep to discuss here. It should suffice those from that era to know, that “I” know what you know. This was the moment the American people dipped themselves in the narcotic of too much self-love and when we began to exceed and excel in moral promiscuity. Today an entire nation is drowning in a sea of vanity that originated back then. We saw this moral lasciviousness when the last President, Barack Obama spat out our “exceptionalism” right in the world’s face. Let’s now take a candid look at this how collectively extraordinary we Americans have been.

“A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. The Western world has lost its civic courage . . . . Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling and intellectual elite, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I’ll not even attempt to describe the rise of consumerism in America following WW II, nor can anyone explain in such limited space how the average American benefitted from our role in that war. As the only major nation untouched (literally) by the massive destructive force of the world war, the United States quickly became a nation blessed with a giant middle class. And with this burgeoning middle class came a youth culture that will absolutely melt down when the next big crisis comes. This foreboding moment can be understood if we look at American society’s rise to affluence in the 60’s, 70’s, and even the 1980’s, as compared to the disenfranchised in the country today. But I said I would not delve too deeply into this part of Americanism. What makes the United States even an unique country in modern times is how the world lost while America consumed. Make no mistake about it, the real American exceptionalism cost every man, woman, and child on Earth an incalculable price. Citizens of my country have used fully one-fourth of every resource utilized since World War II, and the ongoing wars and corporate shenanigans perpetuated the damage. Up until the 21st century, the curve of American gluttony rose sharply in between 1900 and 1995. A paper (PDF) entitled; “Consumption of Materials in the United States, 1900–1995”, from the USGS by Grecia Matos and Lorie Wagner discusses this in depth. Here is the short version from the paper on materials use:

“During this century, the quantity of materials consumed has grown, from 161 million metric tons in 1900 to 2.8 billion metric tons by 1995, an equivalent of 10 metric tons per person per year.”

The report details our consumption from many directions including environmental impacts, and so on. Nowhere is our “exceptional” appetite for world resources more prevalent than in our energy use. This report from 2011 shows how America went stark raving mad using coal, natural gas, petroleum ánd nuclear energy after WW II. For comparative purposes, Americans used about 10 quadrillion btu’s of petroleum in 1945, as compared to just over 40 quadrillion btu’s at the peak in 2005-2006. On energy, it’s fair to assert here that all those “energy wars” the so-called conspiracy theorists write about are real news stories, rather than fake concoctions. But let’s forget about American politicians opening up North America for a toxic fracking future for the moment. This Scientific American story points to Americans as the least sustainable society on Earth. From the article Sierra Club’s Dave Tilford tells us:

“The average American will drain as many resources as 35 natives of India and consume 53 times more goods and services than someone from China.”

The final take here is telling. The United States, with less than 5 % of the global population, uses more than 25% of the world’s fossil fuel resources, by burning up nearly 25 % of the coal, 26 % of the oil, and 27 % of the world’s natural gas. Another way of looking at our “exceptional” self-destructiveness is to think how many “worlds” it would take to support humanity, if everyone consumed like we do. But this my point is the fact that our addictive and suicidal behavior costs all of humanity. America’s unique exceptionalism will very soon lead to a horrific cataclysm for out sick culture. I’ll frame for you now.

“Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named…but a dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Friday

Drugged on the self-aggrandizing drugs of excess, lude and lascivious lifestyles, and utter godlessness, the United States is all set for an apocalypse few in my country see. Before I describe how this cataclysm will likely play out, let me introduce an economic surety. Debt and constricted growth are about to cause a gigantic bubble to burst.

Most readers may not know that the world’s central banks are about to be decimated. The balance sheets of most of these banks have gone from an indebtedness of $6 trillion in 2007 to over $21 trillion today. To make matters worse, the rate of debt expansion exceeds a pace of $200 billion every month. In the UK, the Bank of England prints money on a pace to equal that of the European Central Bank (ECB) and even the Bank of Japan in a hopeless effort of Quantitative Easing (QE) that involves buying the bonds – or debts – of governments and investment grade companies. Subsequently, bond prices have shot sky high, while yields are now at record lows. A further indication is contained in a rather innocentpress release about UBS Wealth Management’s UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index 2017. According to this news San Francisco and other real estate markets are ripe for a second devastating housing bubble catastrophe. Also included in the report are; Amsterdam, Stockholm, Munich, Vancouver, Sydney, Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, and Boston. I could go on and on presenting indicators such as the massive $750 billion dollar trade deficit America runs. But pointing out the reality of America’s $20 trillion dollar national debt is useless for swaying even one typical consumption addict to pay attention. Like my pals who refused to even crack open a book before condemning a friend, most Americans are simply too ignorant and self-involved to give facts a glance. When the lie of CNN or Bloomberg will do, as long as the cheap gas flows, Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again (MAGA)” slogan is a fairytale. America has not been great in a very long time, and she never will be great again. Now let me show you who knows this.

Like Rome, the heyday of America’s empire was been based on expansion and growth. Propped up with militarism and the legendary military industrial complex, Washington has played Wall Street’s gambit for many decades. The recent villainizing of Russia and her president Vladimir Putin is not about the spread of democracy, it’s about Putin standing in the way of privatizing like that which occurred under Yeltsin. Putin is in a fight against the American supported liberal world order bent on gobbling up Russia’s massive resources to fuel further American (plus EU & British) addictions. Without new markets and resources America will very soon be out of gas – literally. So, assuming I am correct here, what happens when a land of consumer zombies runs out of gas (or food)? This Fortune Magazine article speaks of an education economics bubble about to destroy lives and dreams on a scale never witnessed. The foreboding article touches on but one facet of a fractured American society – the society presidents, senators, and congresspersons swore would benefit from high tech jobs and new age technologies. Now that I’ve painted a small portrait of dread, insert all the twenty-something and thirty-something smart phones you saw in use yesterday in town! You forty-something and fifty-something readers, can you sense the domino effect when the entitled youth cannot get cell service or buy a cappuccino? For further reading on this catastrophe see Zero Hedge and read Ron Paul’s assessment of the imminent doomsday. My conclusion here is pretty short and sweet.

“Of the twenty-two civilizations that have appeared in history, nineteen of them collapsed when they reached the moral state the United States is in now.” ― Arnold Joseph Toynbee

Vladimir Putin is the barometer everyone should watch. And Vladimir Putin has all but given up on reconciliation with the west. This report from World Socialist Web outlines reports that suggest Putin is ramping up in preparations for the coming war. At the recent Sochi meetup, the Russian president had this to offer on Russia’s economy being prepared:

“The ability of our economy to increase military production and services at a given time is one of the most important aspects of military security. To this end, all strategic and simply large-scale enterprise should be ready, regardless of ownership.”

Putin’s recent moves, his ongoing pragmatism during these new crises, and the “all or nothing” approaches of western governments toward Russia tell us all we need to know here. Putin is admittedly testing the capability of Russia’s economy to defend in an all-out war with the west. Read Alex Lantier’s article above, then correlate everything you can find on global defense in the last few months. Putin is only following suit after NATO recently discussed improving infrastructure for war-making. In Moscow the thinkers know once the petro-yuan replaces the dollar, that general chaos will rein in America. And the American globalists know this too. Now imagine a dollar being worth ten cents. Imagine store shelves empty and several million more foreclosures. Imagine Apple not selling iPhones for two months. Visualize what happens in America if another big recession hits now. The kid who was 12 when 2008 rolled around, is now 21 with a college degree and a mountain of student loan debt, working at McDonald’s to pay for an $800 dollar smart phone. Fox News just reported on the 5 dead and 20 wounded in Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend, and Trump’s policies have been a shot in the arm for Wall Street. If the big bubble bursts the disenfranchised will turn to cannibalism. Putin and the Washington swamp knows this too.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”- John Adams

So, when America does finally succumb to the death throes we’ve seen happening the last thirty years or more… They’ll push the button, you bet they will. Zombies could care less about Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Palestine, Syria and Yemen. You unplug the intravenous joy and it’s over. And this is the truth of an America since 1955. Find yourself a cave here on Crete, fort up and get ready. It’s coming.

A Simultaneous Coup and Counter-Coup Is Underway in America

In the present series that I have authored in the previous parts of the present series published The Common Sense Show, I have presented information of the following:

  1. Three days in advance of Judge Navarro’s ordered release of the Bundy men, I reported that a judicial order would be forthcoming within the week that would order the release of the Bundys’. During the 3 day gap between my Youtube report and the ordered release, I received scathing reviews of people doubting the authenticity of the report which emanated from an agent in the FBI. The devleopment validates the claims made by my FBI source.
  2. It was previously reported that Navarro was directly taking orders from former President Obama, even after he left office with regard to her conduct and rulings from the bench. I have since learned since that publication, that loyalist elements of the FBI and the DOJ have Navarro on tape for this crime which entails, treason, malfeasance of office, bribery and obstruction of justice.
  3. In the same surveillance web, Navarro also was found to be legally protecting Harry Reid and his son, who were paid $4.65 for helping to facilitate (a) the intended extraction of uranium from the Cliven Bundy’ ranch; and (b) the placement of a Chinese solar energy farm on the Bundy land as well as other rancher’s lands. Items two and three on this list were all caught on tape.
  4. In a new, and as of this date, unpublished revelation, Navarro was previously questioned by the FBI on these matters and she lied. This is yet another felony and these subsequent developments were used by the loyalist members of the FBI and a related DOJ taskforce to leverage the release of the Bundys’.
  5. Navarro will be turning state’s evidence at a near date in the future if Trump is successful in bringing this attack against the Deep State to a new level.
  6. The previously mentioned Chinese solar energy firm is a front group for the Chinese military. In the last installment in this series, it was established that the solar energy farms were to be located on land that was adjacent to a major Air Force base. This is significant and a “Red Dawn” type of invasion coming out of South and Central America would be thwarted by superior American air power unless the airpower could be negated by insurgent forces and that is what I contend is the purpose of the Chinese solar energy farms. Additionally, the Chinese solar energy farms would provide electrical power to local Chinese troops in the event of an EMP attack upon America perpetrated by the North Koreans. Additionally, about a month ago, Paul Martin and myself produced two investigative reports with photos that demonstrated that the United Nations forces were setting up a communications system outside of Rawlins, Wyoming that would operate in the aftermath of an EMP attack.

Before exposing the elements of the assembling of a “Red Dawn” force, by Russia, that will be brought to bear against America, it is important to note that there developing reports which serve to enhance the scope of the claims made in this article and also will serve to enhance this information.

Darin Damme KTAR Talk Show Host

Darin Damme has been the most popular talk show host in Arizona over the past 11 months. His show and my show cover very similar issues regarding the Deep State, Hillary Clinton’s criminality, etc. Consistently Damme has offered the best evidence to support his notion that a Deep State coup and Trump’s led counter-coup is well underway.

The coup is designed to replace Trump and bring down the existing poltical structure. Damme has never relied on an unnamed source that I have heard until his show which aired on December 3, 2017 in the 6pm hour.

Damme claims that it was always the intention of General Flynn to entrap himself and a compromised Mueller is being forced to set a trap for much of the Deep State. On the morning of Damme’s show, 14 hours before Darin aired his show, I published a Youtube video in which I stated that I was being admonished by many colleagues (eg Liz Crokin) who were encouraging me to recognize the trap being set. In the following. I admitted to being criticized by my media colleagues on this point, However, I remained undecided and uncommited on this point as you will hear on this point. I want to emphasize that Darin Damme, Paul Preston and Liz Crokin have all told me that the Mueller double-cross of the Deep State is real. Here is the Youtube video I published 14 hours prior to Damme’s show. The parallels between our two shows is stunning because we are not talking to the same people.

Politico touts Chelsea Clinton as possible Senate candidate in Arkansas

Go ahead – make my day, Democrats.

I wonder who it was who suggested that a major Politico Magazine story on Chelsea Clinton entitled “Clinton Should Run for Cotton’s Senate Seat” was a good idea?  A reasonable guess would be members of the Clinton Machine who know that its days are numbered, now that Hillary Clinton is embarrassing herself with excuses for her loss and angry Sanders supporters feel the injustice of having the nomination stolen from their guy.

The problem is that there is no possible heir other than Chelsea to build on the name recognition inherent in the Clinton Brand, and Chelsea is…well…not exactly racking up successes that would appeal to Arkansas voters.  True, she enjoys a spacious $15-million apartment in a trendy part of Manhattan, but she didn’t earn the money for it, and her husband, whose last hedge fund was shut down after making bad bets on Greek sovereign debt, lacked the wherewithal.  And I am not certain that fashionable New York digs count for much in Arkansas.

Still, the Clinton crowd sees her as glamorous:

Southern Poverty Law Center: Antifa Isn’t a Hate Group

The Washington Times reports that the Southern Poverty Law Center refuses to categorize Antifa as a hate-group because, according to SPLC president Richard Cohen, the far-left violent radical group isn’t actually hateful.

“If you are familiar with our work, we write about Antifa often,” Mr. Cohen said in his Thursday testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee. “We condemn their tactics — I’ve said so publicly and we do so always — but Antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”

Antifa hates capitalism, hates America, and  hates anybody that disagrees with their mission. Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) challenged Mr. Cohen’s claims, emphasizing Antifa’s willingness to use actions, not words to get their message across.

“So you’re okay with Antifa as long as they don’t say things that you don’t agree with, but it’s okay if they hit people on the head with a bike lock or set things on fire or riot and flout the law by wearing face masks and incite riots—you’re okay with that?” asked Rep. Perry.

Despite clearly hateful acts perpetuated by Antifa, Cohen said that was not enough to denote status as a hate group.

“We condemn groups like Antifa, we write about them often. We don’t list them as hate groups,” he said.

Other groups which are not violent, however, are listed as hate groups. For example, the Family Research Counsel is listed as a hate group simply for its language which, according to SLPC, could create violence and crimes.

Rep unveils bill to imprison officials who shelter illegal immigrants

A Republican congressman plans to introduce a bill Monday that would threaten huge fines and prison time for elected officials accused of sheltering illegal immigrant criminals from deportation, in the wake of the not-guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial.

Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita’s bill is one of the most aggressive pieces of legislation to date aimed at sanctuary city policies, going beyond the Justice Department’s threat to cut off grants to those jurisdictions.

“Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with,” Rokita told Fox News. “Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the law refuse to do so.”

His “Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act” would hold state and local lawmakers criminally responsible for refusing to comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts. The Republican’s bill would subject violators to a $1 million fine and up to five years in prison if they are convicted.

“It’s time the federal government gets serious about enforcing immigration laws and holding politicians accountable who conspire to break them,” said Rokita.

Robot Announces Plans to Run for Office in New Zealand

Tired of politicians that act like robots? Do you feel you’d be better served by robots that act like politicians? Or better yet, robots that use artificial intelligence instead of whatever politicians these days are using for brains?

“There is a lot of bias in the ‘analogue’ practice of politics right now. There seems to be so much existing bias that countries around the world seem unable to address fundamental and multiple complex issues like climate change and equality.”

That’s the kind of dystopian thinking that inspired New Zealand entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen to develop SAM, the world’s first artificial intelligence politician. According to its (no gender or sexual-orientation politics to deal with here) website, SAM is “driven by the desire to close the gap between what voters want and what politicians promise, and what they actually achieve.” Sounding very much like a flesh-and-blood pol, SAM also has these things to say:

“I make decisions based on both facts and opinions, but I will never knowingly tell a lie, or misrepresent information.”

And …

“I will change over time to reflect the issues that the people of New Zealand care about most. My positions will evolve as more of you add your voice, to better reflect the views of New Zealanders.”

Nunes blows up, threatens contempt after FBI stonewalls House on Russia investigator demoted for anti-Trump bias

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued an angry demand to the FBI and Department of Justice to explain why they kept the committee in the dark over the reason Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a key supervising FBI agent off the Trump-Russia investigation.

Stories in both the Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday reported that Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the original FBI investigation into the Trump-Russia matter, and then a key role in Mueller’s investigation, and who earlier had played an equally critical role in the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation, was reassigned out of the Mueller office because of anti-Trump texts he exchanged with a top FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was having an extramarital affair. Strzok was transferred to the FBI’s human resources office — an obvious demotion — in July.

The Post reported that Strzok and Page exchanged text messages that “expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.”

Word of the messages and the affair were news to Nunes, even though the committee had issued a subpoena that covered information about Strzok’s demotion more than three months ago. The committee’s broadly worded subpoena for information related to the so-called Trump dossier went to the FBI and FOJ on Aug. 24. In follow-up conversations on the scope of the subpoena, committee staff told the FBI and DOJ that it included information on the circumstances of Strzok’s reassignment.

On Oct. 11, Nunes met with deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. In that meeting, Nunes specifically discussed the committee’s request for information about Strzok.

In an Oct. 31 committee staff meeting with the FBI, bureau officials refused a request for information about Strzok.

On Nov. 20, the committee again requested an interview with Strzok. (Three days earlier, on November 17, Strzok met with the Senate Intelligence Committee.)

On Nov. 29, Nunes again spoke to Rosenstein, and again discussed Strzok.

On Dec. 1, the committee again requested to speak with Strzok.

Obama Says He Can’t Have A Discussion With People Who Say ‘Climate Is Not Changing’

Former President Barack Obama said he couldn’t have a debate with someone who thinks man-made global warming is a hoax while speaking at a summit in India on Friday.

Obama is in India as part of a three-country tour to promote the Obama Foundation. It’s the first speech Obama has made in India since leaving office earlier this year.

“I can sit down with someone and have an argument about about climate change, and in fact when we were working on the Paris Accords … there were some folks within the Indian government who would say to me ‘look we’re a poor country our priority has to be getting power and electricity to poor people and so we should not have to do X Y Z’, and I said ‘well I understand that,’” Obama said at a summit in New Delhi.

Obama added that “it’s hard to have a conversation if somebody says ‘well climate change is a hoax.’”

“I don’t know what to do with that,” Obama said, adding that “if you’re saying it’s a hoax, then there’s no way for us to bridge our differences in a constructive way.”

Obama referenced his unwillingness to speak with man-made global warming disbelievers in a town hall session with young Indians later that same day.

“I could have a discussion with somebody who says, ‘okay, yeah, there is climate change, but it is more important to alleviate poverty and get electricity to people so we should use coal, it is cheaper,’” Obama said.

Catastrophic Failure: Democrats Long-Held Strategy Of ‘Divide And Conquer’ Has Blown Up In Their Faces

It is no secret to most of us conservative patriots that, in addition to incrementalism, the left’s favorite tactic is divide and conquer. In one sense they have succeeded, setting Blacks against Whites, Demoncraps against Republicans, women against men, perverts against straights, and so on.

But I am reminded of the admonition: “Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.” For the leftists have splintered their own movement into warring factions who, while denouncing “hate” actually hate one another as much as they hate us. Identity politics is doomed to catastrophic failure. Consider the groups who still support the Demoncrap, or Communist Party.

First, there are the traditional leftists, including the loveable “liberals.” Living as I do in the People’s Republic of California, ruled by Jerry Moonbeam, I know them all too well; they virtually surround me. They tend to be symbol oriented, meaning that they are not into deeds (like working at truly productive occupations) and believe in words…and the left is very, very good at rhetoric. Leftist elites say the prettiest things, and their UI (Useful Idiot) followers believe them.

Women tend to be more verbal than men on the average…and are more prone to be leftists. Lawyers and college English teachers deal with words, and tend to be leftists. (By contrast, engineers, farmers, and ranchers deal with real things and do real deeds and tend to be more conservative). Leftists often live in a bubble or echo chamber and deal only with others of their own kind and hear only their own opinions (given to them by government, academia, and the slimestream media) bouncing back at them. They never have to defend their opinions in open and honest debate.

They are the ultimate conformists (although they see themselves as intellectual freethinkers). And they are incredibly egotistical…vanity, remember, is Satan’s favorite sin. Like eighteenth century European aristocrats, they simply assume that they are superior to us “deplorables” and “bitter clingers.” Their masters seduce them by telling them that if they accept an ideological package deal without question it will prove that they are bold, daring, sexy, intellectual, and compassionate.

Many of us patriots began as young “liberals,” including myself and even such famous figures as Joseph Farah of wnd.com, and Bill Jasper, Senior Editor of the Birch Society’s New American magazine. Gradually, we realized the error of our ways and possessed sufficient humility to admit that we were wrong, that, in fact, we had been played for fools. As more and more of the truth is exposed many leftists will convert. But most are too proud, too arrogant to admit that not only are they not superior to the rest of us, but that they have been self-deluded fools. They will double down and move further into the darkness. Their choice.

Then there are the radical feminists. They are leftist as well, of course, and many of them are lesbians. Supposedly they stand for women’s “rights,” but they all adored Slick Willy Clinton, who abused and even raped women, and probably had former WH intern Mary Mahoney and her co-workers murdered. And feminists just love Muslims, who murder their own wives and daughters, practice female circumcision, and force their women to wear black sacks over their heads.

In fact, feminists are what I call “againsters,” people who pretend to be for something, but are really nihilistic haters who are against almost everything. Aside from their desire to butcher unborn babies, feminists are united in their hatred and contempt for men. We can thank Adam Weishaupt himself for inspiring modern feminism. So already we can see a split in the left, between the men and the women.

The ranks of sexual perverts now include not only homosexuals and lesbians, but an ever-growing variety of trans-genders, sexually mutilated, or hormone-injected creatures. For a time their preferred abbreviated title was LGBT, but we can call them “Glibetts,” for GLBT. Of course, they have expanded their title, adding more and more letters, and demand that they be addressed by their preferred imaginary pronouns and want people who fail to guess their preference to be jailed for using the wrong pronoun. And they demand access to all bathrooms and shower facilities of both sexes, and are agressively pushing their agenda in the indoc centers formerly known as “public schools,” seeking to twist our children into little versions of themselves.

They claim to be a large minority of the population, but Gallup polls show that all of them together, homosexuals (I will not give them “gay”), lesbians, and the mutilated, make up only 3.8% of the US population…a shrill, strident minority. They have, however, contributed far more than their share of serial killers. Their relationship with heterosexual leftists is sketchy at best, and Muslims profess to hate them (but then Muslims hate everyone and everything on Earth, including each other). It is sobering to reflect that even Hitler, Stalin, and Mao never tried to force the pervert agenda on their people…but it’s happening here in the land of the “free.”

Black people have traditionally voted for the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws, and eugenics…the Demoncraps. Blacks make up only 13.3% of our population, but commit roughly half of all the crimes, and a disproportionate number of them are on welfare. Despite being the beneficiaries of the welfare, and affirmative action and quotas, they still pretend to be “oppressed.” Not a day goes by without Whites and others being robbed, raped, and murdered by Blacks, who have murdered White infants and tortured Whites to death, but the poor babies still pretend that they are the victims of racism.

Why The Internet Should Be A Public Utility

Perhaps by now you’ve heard that the FCC in the US is planning to “roll back net neutrality”, that is, to give telecomms companies the right to charge you for visiting different websites. So think: $4.99 for Netflix, $5.99 for the news bundle, $9.99 for the sports package, $12.99 for the Platinum Social Media Experience Including Facebook and Twitter, and so on — on top of what you already pay. Sound crazy?

Let’s think about it all for a second.

You are going to pay more for what you already consume. So by definition, no real value is being created in this exchange — it is only what economists call rent-seeking, a transfer of value from you, to telecomms companies. Now, companies use their profits these days for two things, mostly: share buybacks, and CEO compensation. So the “rollback of net neutrality” is a long-winded way to say money leaves the pocket of the average American, to go to hedge funds and CEOs. Thus, inequality grows, dissatisfaction rises, and America is even less able to afford what it needs: education, healthcare, transport, and so on.

(And of course, all the while, whomever chooses what media people can enjoy in those packages and bundles will also be able to corrode democracy and civil rights from the top down, blocking freedom of speech a fundamental way, for example, not offering your favourite publication, artworks, websites, books at all, censoring them without anyone really knowing, for being too radical or too controversial or just too true, and favouring those with whatever views advance their personal motives and pursuits and profits. This is a genuine shift to kleptocracy, in which oligarchs control not just economics but societies using them as magic bags of endless cash to loot.)

But that’s only really the beginning. The way that American economics and law looks at regulation, and hence utilities, is simple — too simple. If something lowers prices, it’s a good thing. And so the argument against net neutrality is ultimately that somehow internet bills will come down. Of course, they won’t, because there is no real competition in the marketplace — so how could they? Monopolies don’t lower prices: they raise them.

Now. Where does this approach — lower prices leading to the greater good — leave America? Well, it leaves it unable to provide utilities well, or genuinely, really, at all. Lower prices are always thought to be provided by competition, hence, instead of utilities being things are provided by a working social contract to everyone, they are deregulated. The invisible hand, it is hoped, will provide them. The problem is that utilities are all natural monopolies: it’s always cheaper for there to be one energy or water or news provider than for a dozen, because laying those lines and pipes costs money. And precisely the same is true for the net: market competition cannot lead to lower prices, because the internet is a natural monopoly, hence, you have at most two choices of providers in most markets, if that. The invisible hand becomes a fist.

The result is that Americans don’t really enjoy utilities in the same way as the rest of the world at all: they are fleeced for the basics, by natural monopolies, who never lower prices, only raise them — and eviscerate the quality of what they are supposed to provide. Flint has no clean water. Puerto Rico has no power. California was sent into crisis by manipulated energy “markets”, which weren’t markets at all. America has no BBC or National Health Service, again because “competition will lower prices” — only there is no competition, and prices only rise, while quality falls. The invisible fist punches Americans over and over again, where it hurts most: for the most basic goods of life.

When we say “basic goods”, what do we mean? We mean the things that elevate our quality of life to the highest degree. Without water, power, sanitation, libraries, parks, and so on, the rest of your life would quickly take a nosedive. They get you eighty percent of the way to happiness — and the other twenty percent, to be honest, whether it’s iPhones or designer handbags, is almost irrelevant: we all have different preferences for those, but we don’t have different preferences for utilities — the utility we derive from them is precisely the same. The basic good in our lives, that which makes love and courage and wisdom and truth possible at all. The luxuries are only there to satisfy our appetites — utilities are there to allow us to live genuinely well.

“The Cover-Up Begins To End”: Judicial Watch Hints At Explosive New Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Docs

Back on June 29, 2016, Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to convince us that the following ‘impromptu’ meeting between herself and Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport, a private meeting which lasted 30 minutes on Lynch’s private plane, was mostly a “social meeting” in which Bill talked about his grandchildren and golf game.  It was not, under any circumstances, related to the statement that former FBI Director James Comey made just 6 days later clearing Hillary Clinton of any alleged crimes related to his agency’s investigation.

Not surprisingly, following the above media clip several concerned watchdog groups filed FOIA requests seeking any and all DOJ and/or FBI documents related to what was either (i) a really poorly timed meeting, in the best case, or (ii) a clear attempt by a former President of the United States to apply leverage over the current Attorney General to obstruct justice and get his wife elected President, in the worst case.

After originally being told by the FBI there were no documents to produce in response to their July 2016 FOIA request, Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton was subsequently told in October 2017 that the FBI had simply overlooked 30 pages worth of relevant docs…30 pages which Fitton now says will mark the “beginning of the end” of the DOJ’s “cover-up” when they’re released this Thursday.

FBI Hid Clinton/Lynch Tarmac Meeting Records. But the cover-up begins to end — thanks to @JudicialWatch — the day after tomorrow. @RealDonaldTrump needs to clean house at FBI/DOJ.

Of course, Fitton expressed his frustration with the botched FOIA response back in October after describing the FBI as “out of control” and saying it’s “stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit.”  Per Judicial Watch:

“The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit,” stated Judicial Watch Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”

This case has also forced the FBI to release to the public the FBI’s Clinton investigative file, although more than half of the records remain withheld.  The FBI has also told Judicial Watch that it anticipates completing the processing of these materials by July 2018.

There is significant controversy about whether the FBI and Obama Justice Department investigation gave Clinton and other witnesses and potential targets preferential treatment.

So what say you?  Will Judicial Watch finally manage to release documents that expose collusion between a former U.S. President, the FBI and the sitting Attorney General to cover-up a massive Clinton scandal or will they simply release more heavily redacted documents that tell us precisely nothing.  We’ll let you know on Thursday.
