To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
—Howard Zinn (not generally a fan, but poignant words nonetheless)
How long does the trail of shit have to be before an overwhelming majority of Americans admit that Hillary has systemic, incurable diarrhea?
The American people are being driven into a state of such confusion by the mainstream media’s assault on their minds that, combined with the rapid fire stream of events provided by the corrupt cabal of the Deep State/CIA/FBI/Clinton Crime Family/Obama/Soros that is entwined in the grotesque, insidious gestalt of all of them called the Shadow Government, it has resulted in a state of lobotomized confusion and mental dissonance. A state of mind and soul which has desensitized them to the truth: the treasons and corruptions of the entire cabal, if not most of the power players within the Beltway.
The extraordinary inability to absorb facts or even remotely give ground and admit that, the ever expanding trail of criminal, subversive and treasonous accusations that surrounds not only the Clinton’s, but the very agencies that were created to protect America and the rule of law, must contain serious clumps of truth and reality defies all logic. However, we are no longer living in a world of rational thought. Facts and truth are no all relative, as they are bent by minds that are now completely wired, perhaps permanently, by indoctrination and cradle to grave propaganda and god knows what other technological and pharmacological means, into a state akin to an alternative reality.
Aldous Huxley once wrote: “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Perhaps, we have arrived at that then future point.
The oligarchs of evil and control clearly believe that we have now achieved a critical point where, with their almost total control of the corporate media and a well orchestrated Alinsky deluge of events that is overwhelming what remains of our ability to think outside of the hive. They can control the narrative no matter how many flaws that fake story contains. For instance, as the Las Vegas crazed lone shooter storyline, supported in its entirety (except by Fox News) by the MSM, started to rapidly fall apart due to the extraordinary efforts of the independent media, the event, a tried and true diversionary tactic, the media and Congress dropped the story with extraordinary alacrity.
It was replaced with the sacrifice of one of their own, Harvey Weinstein, a clearly expendable pig on the Satanic alter, which absorbed and continues to do so, more time and attention then the mass murder of innocent country music revelers in Las Vegas did, but then they were all likely Trump supporters. Why not kill two birds with one stone.
However, once again, they underestimated the secondary effects of their diversionary tactics, which in the case of Harvey Pigstein, is a flood of accusations of rape, sexual harassment even against their untouchable sacred core perversion, Pedophilia, that too much of the movie going public (the efeet literati do not attend Hollywood crap), like the very damaging and hopefully permanent reaction to the NFL, are losing their appetite for the pabulum and irrelevance of the major sources of mindless entertainment. Entertainments that the progressive Fabian fascists have relied on for generations to sap the increasingly limited bandwidth of the American mind.
The floodgates of the pedophilia epidemic of the elites on both coasts has yet to be unleashed. It will hopefully do so soon, as the total sickening depravity will touch Americans far more powerfully than the overwhelming confusion of crimes erupting from our nation’s capital. It can only be hoped that with less testosterone spent on football and a diminution of the brainwaves wasted upon the total irrelevance of Hollywood and on the cult of personality they so carefully proselytized, that more and more red blooded Americans of all colors, races and religions will give more focus to the evil and tyranny that is no longer approaching on the horizon, it is already here.
We can not succumb to such immorality and evils. We cannot lose our America to their tyranny.
It is the tyranny of the total surveillance police state controlled by the technocratic, progressive fascist left and the inner circle of the Satanic globalist cabal of wealth, greed and power. The rapid response of the corrupt Special Prosecutor, Mueller, a totally embedded representative of the hidden hands of the shadow government, to the eruption of news that was difficult for the mainstream media to avoid, concerning the evolving treasons and crimes of Clinton’s Fusiongate, leaked by his team to CNN on Friday, was nothing but another diversionary tactic to feed the foul, lying mouths of the Deep State owned media.
It worked, but hopefully not for long as the truth is still percolating up from its suppression.
My great fear, however, as we do not have the willpower left or the inner rage needed to act as decisively as will be needed to counter the powers arrayed against us, even if we all accept the truth, no matter how heinous and depraved. It is possible that the power elite understand that they have finally destroyed our capacity to revolt, even to think as moral, free individuals.
Long, but Good Summary!!!! The insidious network undermining American democracy is beyond imagination.
US mistakenly promotes Tymoshenko to Ukrainian president in rush to indict Manafort -RT
A US federal grand jury appears to have fulfilled the ultimate dream of the controversial Ukrainian political figure, if only on paper. Tymoshenko aspired to take the post twice – in the 2010 and 2014 elections – but failed both times.
The jury was apparently so eager to indict President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager that it missed the fact that Tymoshenko was never president. “At the direction of Manafort and Gates, Company A and Company B engaged in extensive lobbying. Among other things, they lobbied multiple Members of Congress and their staffs about Ukraine sanctions, the validity of Ukrainian elections, and the propriety of Yanukovych’s imprisoning his presidential rival, Yulia Tymoshenko (who had served as Ukraine President prior to Yanukovych),” the indictment it prepared against Manafort reads.
This mistake seems even more odd, given that it was Viktor Yushchenko, who is known for his staunch pro-western and anti-Russian stance, who in fact served as the President of Ukraine before Yanukovich.
Yushchenko actively supported the idea of Ukraine developing close ties with the US and the EU as well as repeatedly pushing for his country to join NATO. Yushchenko’s wife was born in the US and even served as a special assistant to the Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs for some time.
As for Tymoshenko, she served as a Prime Minister for three years under Yushchenko and then spent over two years in prison between 2011 and 2014, after being probed for over 10 criminal acts, including misuse of public finances; abuse of office over a natural gas import contract; and intention to murder. She was released only after the coup that saw President Viktor Yanukovich being toppled
The blunder did not go unnoticed with the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, who responded by saying that it makes the whole investigation look “so much like a hoax.” The mistake is “a very important detail, which shows how the document was once again cooked, produced, prepared,” Zakharova said. She added that “when a serious investigation is concerned, such things are ruled out.”
THAT OTHER PLOT – TO BRING DOWN TRUMP
Pat Buchanan: ‘The real indictment here is of the American political system’
Well over a year after the FBI began investigating “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought in his first major indictment. Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been charged with a series of crimes dating back years, though none is tied directly to President Donald Trump or 2016.
With a leak to CNN that indictments were coming, Mueller’s office stole the weekend headlines. This blanketed the explosive news on a separate front, as the dots began to be connected on a bipartisan plot to bring down Trump that began two years ago.
And like “Murder of the Orient Express,” it seems almost everyone on the train had a hand in the plot.
The narrative begins in October 2015.
Then it was that the Washington Free Beacon, a neocon website, engaged a firm of researchers called Fusion GPS to do deep dirt-diving into Trump’s personal and professional life – and take him out.
A spinoff of Bill Kristol’s The Weekly Standard, the Beacon is run by his son-in-law. And its Daddy Warbucks is the GOP oligarch and hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer.
From October 2015 to May 2016, Fusion GPS dug up dirt for the neocons and never-Trumpers. By May, however, Trump had routed all rivals and was the certain Republican nominee.
So the Beacon bailed, and Fusion GPS found two new cash cows to finance its dirt-diving – the DNC and the Clinton campaign.
To keep the sordid business at arm’s length, both engaged the party’s law firm of Perkins Coie. Paid $12.4 million by the DNC and Clinton campaign, Perkins used part of this cash hoard to pay Fusion GPS.
Here is where it begins to get interesting.
In June 2016, Fusion GPS engaged a British spy, Christopher Steele, who had headed up the Russia desk at MI6, to ferret out any connections between Trump and Russia.
Steele began contacting old acquaintances in the FSB, the Russian intelligence service. And the Russians began to feed him astonishing dirt on Trump that could, if substantiated, kill his candidacy.
Among the allegations was that Trump had consorted with prostitutes at a Moscow hotel, that the Kremlin was blackmailing him, that there was provable collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In memos from June to October 2016, Steele passed this on to Fusion GPS, which passed it on to major U.S. newspapers. But as the press was unable to verify it, they declined to publish it.
Steele’s final product, a 35-page dossier, has been described as full of “unsubstantiated and salacious allegations.”
Steele’s research, however, had also made its way to James Comey’s FBI, which was apparently so taken with it that the bureau considered paying Steele to continue his work.
About this “astonishing” development, columnist Byron York of the Washington Examiner quotes Sen. Chuck Grassley:
“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises … questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends.”
The questions begin to pile up.
What was the FBI’s relationship with the British spy who was so wired into Russian intelligence?
Did the FBI use the information Steele dug up to expand its own investigation of Russia-Trump “collusion”? Did the FBI pass what Steele unearthed to the White House and the National Security Council?
Did the Obama administration use the information from the Steele dossier to justify unmasking the names of Trump officials who had been picked up on legitimate electronic intercepts?
In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed they did not know that Perkins Coie had enlisted Fusion GPA or the British spy to dig up dirt on Trump.
Yet, when Podesta testified, the lawyer sitting beside him in the committee room was Marc Elias of Perkins Coie, who had engaged Fusion GPS and received the fruits of Steele’s undercover work.
Here one is tempted to cite Bismarck that, if you wish to enjoy politics or sausages, you should not inquire too closely how they are made.
Thus we have Free Beacon neocons, never-Trump Republicans, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC, a British spy and comrades in Russian intelligence, and perhaps the FBI, all working with secret money and seedy individuals to destroy a candidate they could not defeat in a free election.
If future revelations demonstrate that this is what went down, it is not only the White House that has major problems.
If you wish to know why Americans detest politics and hate the “swamp” that has been made of their capital city, follow this story all the way to its inevitable end. It will be months of unfolding.
The real indictment here is of the American political system, and the true tragedy is the decline of the Old Republic.
