The Plot to Steal the Mid-Terms of 2022

Friday, May 13th, 2022

Few even know what’s coming

Knowing they must hold onto the House and Senate in order to complete their coup d’etat, the Democrats and their RINO cohorts in the DC Mafia have concocted a plot so diabolical that it may only be prevented by immediate action of Americans.  Once in place, I don’t think it will be undone without force of arms.  You are in the midst of a color revolution disguised as an election.  They stole 2020, and they’ve been hardening their defenses as they secure their actual insurrection against any sort of insurgency, whether political or otherwise.  It’s worse than despicable.  They intend to use our own system of government to completely supplant our system of government.  This is what securing a coup looks like.

The Biden administration has proposed amendments to the World Health Assembly treaty that formed the World Health Organization(WHO.) These amendments will be voted into place by the assembly next week, and they will use these amendments to empower the WHO to make public health policies in all the signatory countries.  This will permit them to impose lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and pretty much anything else they wish to impose forcibly without reference to the US constitution, and without the ability of states’ governors to intervene or otherwise interfere.  Yes, the blue helmets may be coming to give you your jab.  The main intention here is to enable them to impose lockdowns when the “mid-terms variant” arrives as planned later this year.  This will be the basis for declaring a new set of emergencies, and of course, it will be the foundation for their next election steal.  The drop-boxes will be back with a vengeance, and they may even impose some kind of maniacal martial law in order to force their use.  They’re going to steal it while you watch, helpless to oppose them.

Ordinarily, the adoption of a new treaty would require a 2/3s vote of the United States Senate.  Naturally, their work-around here is to pretend they’re simply amending an existing treaty, and therefore don’t need Senate ratification.  It’s a lie, like everything else they’ve done.  They even held a phony “comment” session this morning, two hours long, with hand-selected shills.  Michele Bachmann had registered to comment, but in the end, they only let approved persons representing various select groups to comment on the amendments.  This is a scam.

Here’s a segment with Bachmann from Bannon’s WarRoom this morning:


Understand that all of this is being done with the purpose of destroying your ability to unseat their cabal this Fall.  This is about securing the coup d’etat they carried out on November 3rd, 2020.  This is why you haven’t heard about this on any of the MSM, including Foxnews.  This is why #2000Mules is still being suppressed.  It’s time to embrace the suck.  The demons in our DC Mafia have a plan, and they’re getting ready to execute it.  This set of treaty amendments is one of the key prerequisites.

@RichardGrenell’s #FakeNews

Grenell “Joins” #FakeNews

On Wednesday morning, I awoke to a burgeoning controversy on Twitter. While controversies on Twitter are roughly as common as Tweets on Twitter, this one was more troubling.  In this case, former Ambassador Richard “Ric” Grenell was electioneering on behalf of Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Trump-endorsed candidate for the US Senate seat in Pennsylvania.  Oz is known to be a RINO, let’s face it, and in the race, the two other serious candidates are Dave McCormick, another probable deep-state goon, and a genuine, hard-working, authentic woman named Kathy Barnette.  A recent poll in the state by the Trafalgar Group showed Barnette rapidly closing on Dr. Oz, who has the advantage of what I consider a sorely misguided Trump endorsement.  Oz has infamously advocated for gender transitioning of minors, and all sorts of leftist garbage.  It’s a complete mystery to me (and many Pennsylvanians) why Trump would endorse this dirtbag. Nevertheless, seeing that Kathy Barnette is fast-closing on Dr. Oz with the primary election only one week away, Grenell cherry-picked a tweet and tried to use it to defame Barnette. Here’s Grenell’s tweet(screen capture here in case deleted):

Obviously, either Grenell didn’t bother to look further, or he intended to mislead those reading his tweets. Grenell is a sophisticated man, and while there’s some slight possibility it was just laziness, I rather doubt it. With this tweet, Grenell has added himself to my list of snakes.

Here’s what you find when you bother to dig just a little more deeply. When you go to look at Barnette’s actual tweet, you see she’s using the hashtags to call attention to a video on her Facebook page, not to promote the hashtags:

When you go to that tweet, you find her actual Facebook video:

If you follow the link to the video, you quickly realize that Kathy was mournfully criticizing #BLM and #DefundThePolice.

Why did Ric Grenell decide to defame Kathy Barnette?  Is it because he supports Dr. Oz?  Apparently.  In this case, he was either too lazy to discover the truth, or too dishonest to show you the truth.  Either way, it speaks ill of him.  Kathy Barnette is a fantastic candidate for the US Senate, and President Trump should have endorsed her rather than Dr. Oz.  We’ll never know why, but if people as dishonest as Ric Grenell appears to have been in this case are bending President Trump’s ear on the matter, we can guess why he might think Oz the better candidate.

Pennsylvania, you have the first chance in a long time to put a real America-First candidate in the US Senate.  Kathy Barnette is that candidate.  Ric Grenell has rightly earned the scorn of many on Twitter for this lazy or dishonest tweet.  The disappointment is breath-taking.  Conservatives are furious.  He deserves it.  He should immediately correct the record, apologize to Kathy Barnette, and stop commenting further on this race.  It’s despicable, and many of us, myself included, had thought Grenell was better than this.

Yeah, not so much.

Editor’s Note: The reason the RINOs are getting nervous and resorting to these tactics is this poll from Trafalgar Group:

Sarah Palin Announces Run for Congress!

Friday, April 1st, 2022

Back in the fight! Run, Sarah Run!

After more than a decade out of elected office, former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has announced that she will be seeking the office vacated by the death of long-time Congressman Don Young.  While she’s been out of office, many have pined for her return to the political stage, and nobody has done more in recent years to elevate the profile of the state, and as governor, none had done more to represent the interests of Alaskans than Sarah Palin.  Frankly, this writer is ecstatic at the announcement.  It’s a phenomenal turn of events. Let’s hope Alaskans see it the way I do, and let’s hope for a Trump Rally in Anchorage to endorse her!  Trump’s got to understand what a huge boost for his own future plans an in-person rally in Alaska would be.  I’m getting ahead of myself, of course, but I’m just very happy to see that Governor Palin is back into the fight. According to several outlets, Palin was quoted as saying:

“We need people like Donald Trump, who has nothing to lose. Like me,”

It’s true. We need more people who aren’t captured by the Republican establishment in DC.  Sarah Palin represents that mindset. She also recognizes the severe dangers to the United States into which our current so-called “leadership” places us.

Best of all, we can read her own words on the matter:

Within minutes after this tweet, I think the server at sarahforalaska.com became completely overwhelmed.  I suspect people from all over Alaska, and indeed all over America, are rushing in to support her. Be patient. Once the mad rush is over, you’ll be able to get there.

All I can say at this point is: Run Sarah, RUN!

And kick some RINO ass while you’re at it. Godspeed, Governor Palin! The country is in dire need of real patriots in DC like never before.

Putting Lipstick on the Globalist Mafia’s Ukrainian Pig

Information Cartel Carries Water for George Soros

I listen to some mainstream media because one ought to know what the talking-points and narrative of the day will be that one must confront and break through to see the truth.  Now that it’s clear that there are only a handful of shows anywhere that will tell you anything like the truth, it’s time we start cleaning this mess up to the degree we are able.  The reports I am seeing and hearing in mainstream media suggest that “Putin is desperate,” and he’s “increasingly isolated” or “becoming unhinged.”  If you’re seeing these same reports, let me suggest to you that you carefully pay attention to the motives behind those telling you these things.  Of course, none of us are on the ground in Ukraine, so it’s hard to know with any precision what is true, but the thing you can assume is that the first reports of any event are going to be mostly false.  There is propaganda from both sides of the war, but Western media has decided to go “all in” on whatever propaganda the Ukrainian side prefers.  Putin is a monster, they tell you, and I have no doubt that from certain perspectives, he is.  On the other hand, you should know that there are plenty of monsters to go around in Ukraine, and many of them are not Russian.  Some of the worst monsters in the situation in Ukraine are people like Victoria Nuland, and the people she represents.  If you were thinking that as a Deputy Secretary of State, she represents the people of the United States, you’re tragically mistaken.  She represents the real enemy of the American people.  Ukraine is not what you’re being told, and no amount of lipstick applied to this pig of a situation can possibly conceal the truth.

The other problem in Ukraine is that most Americans don’t know the first thing about that corrupt buffer-state in Eastern Europe.  Many don’t know anything about its history, or how it came to the situation in which it now finds itself.   Portrayed in the West as purely the victim of Russian aggression, Americans are expected to believe the bilge the media spews, without ever noticing that the country of Ukraine has extensive problems that pre-date, and indeed have contributed to, the invasion you’re now witnessing.  I can’t possibly recount here all the history of Ukraine, and particularly the history that plays a thorough role in what you’re now witnessing.  What I can tell you is that some people have tried to document some of it, including sometimes mad-cap film-maker Oliver Stone.  While I don’t agree with many of the conclusions he seems to reach, he does a fair job explaining the side of this argument you haven’t heard, and that makes this documentary worth watching.  Made in 2016, long before the current crisis, Ukraine On Fire documents much of the history of the Ukrainian problem, told from a point of view that seems somewhat sympathetic to the Russian position.  Still, even with the bias, it’s interesting that so few Americans know anything of the opposing arguments, but have heard the Western position twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week, since the beginning of this crisis:


As I said, I can’t endorse everything that Stone presents, at least in the manner he presents it, but there are some very important takeaways that Americans must recognize as true upon deeper reflection upon their own experiences.  For instance, in the Summer of 2020, you witnessed the beginning of a color revolution in America, and had Trump been re-elected, you would have experienced its full fury.  Notice that groups like BLM and Antifa, responsible for nearly all of the mayhem that rocked the United States in the run-up to the Presidential election, employed tactics like those of the revolutionaries in Ukraine in 2013-14.  In point of fact, the same people funded it, pushed it, assisted, aided, and abetted it.  Had Donald Trump been re-elected rather than having been cheated out of a second term, the same basic approach was going to be used to depose him as had been used to remove Yanukovych in the so-called “Revolution of Dignity.”  People who watched the entire affair in the wake of George Floyd’s death will see the similarities.  Understand that the same group of people who caused the Ukrainian President to flee to safety in Russia in 2014 were intent upon doing the same to Trump in 2020 or 2021, had he been re-elected.

Once you realize that similar tactics were employed, right down to the martyrs who were mere useful idiots of the protests, you realize that there were more similarities than you’d otherwise dare to suspect.  The corporate media represents a particular view, and where there is insufficient corporate media, it was created in real time to support the revolutionaries.  We saw some of this here, with a proliferation of Youtube Channels the purpose of which seemed to have been to assist the coordination of BLM and Antifa anarchists.  Big Tech is neck deep in all of this.  They repeatedly tell you they’re ‘defending Democracy’ while they simultaneously do everything they can to undermine it.  What else could be the meaning of Mark Zuckerberg spending hundreds of millions of dollars in 2020 to influence the outcome of the election, or now, to assist Ukraine by permitting for the calls for violence and incitement against Russians on the Meta/Facebook platform?  Do you realize yet how you’re being set up, again?  Zuckerberg’s organization helped spread the word and assisted the Coup-plotters in Ukraine in 2014, and they did the same with BLM/Antifa in 2020 here in the US.   George Soros spent millions in Ukraine, as he’s spending millions more now, but the way he spends it is most important:  He uses seed money directly in the target country, while bribing politicians with indirect support, in order to get them to spend billions on his pet projects in the US and abroad.

When you listen to Foxnews and the panel tells Newt Gingrich essentially to shut up about George Soros, you know the fix is in. Here’s a reminder of how that went down:

This is the sort of stifling that has happened with contrary information about SARs-CoV2, the COVID vaccines, Hunter Biden’s laptop(s,) and now Ukraine.  The information you’re being permitted to see and hear is only approved information in most cases.  People are now talking about how Putin is isolating his people from information, but that’s a two-way street.  Western governments are likewise isolating their own populations from information.  Why do you really think Trump was kicked-off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram?  Why do you think Parler was submarined by the Big Tech oligarchs who control Apple, Google and Amazon Web Services?  All of it is about limiting the information to which you have access.  Dan Bongino likes to play the Soviet National Anthem when talking about the Big Tech oligarchs for this very reason.  He’s lived it.  Indeed, the Stone documentary above was kicked off Youtube to prevent you from seeing it.  This is a clear indicator of how dangerous these people think certain information is to their plans.

Do you really believe George Soros only seeks to influence elections in the US?  He uses his money to help foment “color revolutions” around the globe, and one of the ways in which he uses these revolutions is to profit from them.  Soros made the bulk of his wealth wrecking currencies.  At this moment, Soros is in the process of an all-out attack on Russia’s Ruble, and he has the complicity of the United States and most of the EU in so doing.  Recently, Soros published an op-ed that called for regime-change in both Russia and China.  He remains entirely dishonest and misleading. Here’s one example:

“In July 2021, Putin published a long essay arguing that Russians and Ukrainians are really one people, and that the Ukrainians have been misled by neo-Nazi agitators. The first part of his argument is not without some historical justification, given that Kyiv was the original seat of the Russian Orthodox Church. But in the second part, it was Putin who was misled. He ought to have known better. Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014.“(empahasis mine.)

The statement “Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014” makes it seem as though Soros is an outsider simply observing these events, but the truth you already know from the Stone documentary above, from other articles previously published on this site, and from other sources:  George Soros was up to his neck in the 2014 protests that ultimately became a coup d’etat in Ukraine.  This is not open to debate.  That this was manned by people flying the neo-Nazi symbols of WWII collaborators of Western Ukraine is not a mistake.  Even now, the so-called Azov battalion are augmenting Ukrainian forces.  Their roots lie in the deep history of Ukraine along with the color revolution that Soros spawned in 2014.  Color revolutions are what Soros does, and it’s part of his mechanism for generating new wealth.  With the influence he now owns in the US, he basically now considers the US mostly a matter of “Mission Accomplished.”

He goes on a bit before concluding, but I’d like to you to consider the sort of bilge Soros here asks you to swallow:

“Meanwhile, Xi seems to have realized that Putin has gone rogue. On March 8, one day after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had insisted that the friendship between China and Russia remained “rock solid,” Xi called French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to say that he supported their peacemaking efforts. He wanted maximum restraint in the war in order to avert a humanitarian crisis.”(emphasis mine.)

Who here believes, having learned about the plight of the Uyghurs in China could become convinced that Xi is even remotely concerned with averting any humanitarian crisis anywhere on Earth?

He concludes with this gem, and there’s a tell in here if you pay close attention to what this madman actually believes:

“It is far from certain that Putin will accede to Xi’s wishes. We can only hope that Putin and Xi will be removed from power before they can destroy our civilization.”(emphasis mine.)

A casual reader might be led by this statement to believe with the use of “our civilization” that Soros is talking about the traditional Western civilization you and I consider “ours.” Nothing could be further from the truth.  Soros didn’t write this as an opinion piece to be consumed by you and I.  Instead, this is an order sent out publicly to his minions around the globe, and his message is clear: Take out Putin and Xi because “our civilization” is endangered, but by “ours,” he does not mean yours and mine.  He’s talking about the vast criminal enterprise he and his coterie of corrupt globalist politicians have put in place to dominate the world.  He’s saying it in the open, even though he’s using veiled language.  More, in the beginning of the article, he confesses having set up another of his NGOs in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and in each of the former Soviet states, including Ukraine.

What has happened these last twenty or so years is that Soros has been booted-out of most of these countries, because Putin quickly realized that Soros was slowly but surely intent on driving color revolutions in each and every one of these former Soviet republics, including eventually Russia.  This has been the base of operations for vast global political corruption, not merely in the former Soviet republics in question, but reaching their tentacles across the globe, including particularly Europe and the United States, but also in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and South America.  Soros’ network of organized gangsters is global.  While Vladimir Putin remains a dangerous murderer, it makes a great deal of sense to understand a bit of where his mind is.  You’re not being told this, because on balance, most Americans would firmly plant their feet onto the solid ground of “not my monkey, not my circus,” refusing to play along with the latest of Soros’ global power plays.  At worst, you might even call for the United States to abandon that sphere forever, and there’s simply too much cash to be had there.  How do you think Mitt Romney and Joe Biden and a whole laundry-list of other American and Western politicians are so deeply entrenched in the goings-on in Ukraine, of all places?  While certainly not on “our side,” meaning yours or mine, Putin is more like the enemy of my enemy, not with respect to the people of Ukraine, but of their actual attackers over the last two decades who have used them as guinea pigs for the biological and pharmaceutical research that’s been conducted with the willing “consent” of these desperately poor people.

These Western profiteers, whether Soros, or the American or European politicians, and the large corporations who have been raping Ukraine for two decades do not want the gravy train to end.  Back in January, they got another setback to “[their] civilization” when a color revolution they helped to foment was stopped in Kazakhstan.  In a way, this contributed to their current desperation to hurt Putin in Ukraine.  Their money laundries are being closed down.  If you wonder what’s going on, I suggest you look closely at this angle.  Remember that Karim Masimov, the former Chief of Kazakhistan’s Intelligence, effectively the equivalent of the Director of the CIA in the USA, was accused of having conspired in high treason for helping to carry out a coup by working with the same band of global gangsters led by Soros, among others.  Notice the picture in the linked article.  That’s right, you see a picture of some familiar faces on Mr. Masimov’s right.

This brings us to the next problem Mr. Soros now faces.  His color revolutions in and around Russia have been stymied, at least for the moment, but he’s got another problem, and it’s a difficult one.  Putin may hold some information on Biden and his son, along with the activities of other Western politicians likewise involved.  This is a serious threat to “[their] civilization” because Biden is currently refraining from undercutting Putin in any serious way.  I believe they have an operation in motion to get to Putin, and the future duration of Biden’s presidency is entirely wrapped-up in the success or failure of their ability to “go get him.”  If it fails, and Putin remains, Biden may be forced to choose between “[their] civilization” and his own son.  This is why the Western Information Cartel has made Russian contributions to world news increasingly opaque.  There are certain stories they cannot afford to have exposed.  Hunter Biden is now a liability, as may be Joe Biden himself.  Soros may have to play that card, and pull the plug on Biden.  That may not, however, be enough.  They need to free-up NATO to go kinetic against Russia.  The “Neocons” and others screaming for war on the approximate, putative political right in the United States are pushing hard against Biden.  These people are compromised too, most of them, and they’re in bed with Soros one way or the other.  Don’t delude yourself on this: The United States Senate is ultimately controlled almost entirely by sell-outs to the United States.  Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio are far from alone among those who will happily do the bidding of their masters.

If we get to the next round of this rolling catastrophe, Taiwan will present very similar themes all ’round.  Hunter and Joe are every bit as compromised by Xi’s CCP, perhaps even more than they are by Putin.  Many Western politicians fear this most of all.  Xi is only now coming to understand that Soros and his crowd have been using the last thirty years to infiltrate his country too, and indeed, much of the Pacific rim.  This is why Soros’ op-ed piece, linked above, contains a warning as much or even more to Xi than to Putin. He desperately needs Xi not to back Putin on anything here, but the fact that Xi has sent mixed messages on the matter have left Soros quite angry.  Xi has figured out that Soros would happily foment color revolutions in Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as in mainland China.  Xi very much fancies himself the next Mao, or the next Deng, but more probably, bigger and better than either.  Xi exudes confidence and not a little arrogance.  Soros is here warning Xi that he’s now on the list too.

I’d ask readers to consider some important questions worth pondering.  Let us begin with the information war, and the way in which the Western Information Cartel is conducting it, not on behalf of Ukraine, but on behalf of “[their] civilization.” Consider what you have been told, all simultaneously:

  • Putin is on the run, or getting desperate, or his forces are failing(or some version of this narrative)
  • Ukrainians are heroically fighting-back, preventing Putin from capturing territory
  • Putin is destroying Ukraine, flattening it everywhere, without regard to civilians
  • Putin doesn’t have the ability to reliably project force over the battle space
  • Putin conducted a strike on a training base in far Western Ukraine

Some of these are assessments, by “analysts.” Others are from commentators.  Still others are provided as facts.  Some of these may be true, but they cannot all be true simultaneously.  Remember these other things told you by the same Western Information Cartel:

  • Trump colluded with Russians to hack Hillary’s email and otherwise get dirt on her and also secure their help in rigging the 2016 election
  • Trump said there were good people on both sides(implying he was simply talking about the protesters and counter-protesters – and all counter-protesters were white supremacists)
  • SARS-CoV2 is a lethal virus that arose naturally in bats and jumped to humans in a wet-market in Wuhan
  • Hydroxychloroquine is a dangerous drug that can cause significant heart problems and doesn’t work against COVID
  • COVID-19 Vaccines are perfectly safe and effective
  • The 2020 Presidential Election(and indeed all elections that November) were the safest, most secure in history
  • Oil price increases and spiking inflation are mostly due to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine

Do you begin to see a pattern?

  • Ghost of Kiev
  • Snake Island
  • Zelenskiy’s “ammo, not a ride” quote that wasn’t

There are many more, and you must begin to ask yourself to what degree and how frequently you’re being played by mainstream media.  The Western Information Cartel is staffed by people largely sympathetic first and foremost to George Soros and his coterie of corrupt globalist cannibals, who fancy themselves compassionate while they simultaneously feast on average people anywhere the hunger strikes them.  These people are gangsters, and their small errand-boys in the media simply follow orders.  This is how they can in one moment tell you that Putin has carried out a devastating strike in far Western Ukraine, but in the next, provide analysis claiming that Putin is incapable of projecting power on the battlefield.  The two notions are entirely incongruous.

Consider too this recent controversy in which Mitt Romney, one of Soros’ boys, accused former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard of treason for daring to question the narrative about bio-labs in Ukraine.  Romney came unglued.  All Gabbard did was to ask some pointed questions based on the information publicly available.  Romney’s reaction was clearly one of a man worried about some darker truth being unearthed.  Here’s TheHill‘s take on the controversy:

After seeing Romney’s reaction, it’s clear that he’s worried about something not obvious to the rest of us.  His reaction was very defensive, and his former aid’s involvement in Ukraine may be the key. Whatever is motivating Romney’s attack on Gabbard, it’s clear that he seems quite perturbed.  Pierre Delecto isn’t happy with Tulsi.

After a little inspection, you start to realize that somebody’s applying lipstick with a trowel to the pig that is the situation in Ukraine.  Either Ukraine is doing much more poorly than we’re being told, or Putin truly is a lunatic.  Since I’ve seen plenty of evidence to disbelieve the second, and no evidence at all to dissuade me of the first, I’ve begun to believe the Western Information Cartel is simply telling us a gargantuan lie.  Why? To what end? Surely, if this is so, it cannot change the ultimate outcome.  If Ukraine is actually in a much worse military state than the media now suggests, what would be their object? It’s a stall-for-time tactic.  One thing for which they’re clearly stalling is the finalization of a nuclear deal with Iran being negotiated by Russia.  I’m still not certain as to why the nuclear deal is so deadly-important to the Biden gang, and presumably also the Soros club.  The more immediate idea is to prevent Ukrainians from understanding how bad their situation really is across the entire battlefield, and to try to buoy their morale so as to extend their will to resist.  The idea is likely to give time for an anti-Putin operation to succeed.  At this point, it may be the only way the money-laundry and corruption-den that has been Ukraine these last twenty years may be salvaged by Soros and his gang, and they’ve invested a lot of money there, and with it, a ton of yours via the State Department, the Department of Defense, and countless other US agencies and departments.  That’s right.  You’re paying for this however it shakes out.

 

The Crisis of Truth in Ukraine

Thursday, March 10th, 2022

What don’t they want us to see?

One of the problems you face in trying to discern what’s going on in Ukraine is the almost complete black-out of facts on the ground.  We’re simply not getting much information, and while we get reports of things that happen, many times, too frequently in fact, these reports are later debunked or revised in such a way as to make what’s really going on very murky and unintelligible.  On Wednesday, there was a report of a maternity ward in a hospital being struck by the Russians.  I’ve heard no follow-up reports, but I don’t consider the story factual until I see some sort of confirmation that it’s real.  We’ve all been burned too many times already in this conflict, by ridiculous fake news, almost all of it either for the Ukrainians, or against the Russians.  “Snake Island,” “Ghost of Kiev,” “I don’t need a ride, I need ammo,” “radiation leaks,” and on and on.  The number of false stories coming out of this conflict, combined with the complete lack of solid information on casualty counts on either side suggests a number of things to me, and all of it is that the gas-lighting is on an epic scale.  There’s no truth in any of this. On Wednesday, Bongino referred to the problem as a “Crisis of Truth.” It’s worse than that. We have a crisis of facts, due to a stunning lack of them.  Do we know the truth?  No.  Can we know the truth?  I don’t know, and I don’t believe anybody else in the West can tell you otherwise.  I’m going to tell you what I think is happening, and what may happen. I’m also going to tell you why I think it’s happening.  These are not facts, but they are educated guesses based on the slim facts we have.

Russia is grinding it out.  Things are not going easily for Russia, but unless something else changes markedly, they’re going to defeat the Ukrainians.  The invaders have all the material, manpower, and technological advantages.  Even Ukraine’s planes are aging Russian models.  Russia largely controls the avenues of approach into Ukraine, except in the most extreme West of the country, but again, the ability to move any substantial amount of supplies or war materials into Ukraine from the West will be severely hampered.  Russia clearly controls the areas along the Black Sea coast, so there’s no material by ship that’s going to make it in.  Even now, it seems the latest disposition maps I’ve seen suggest that Russia is slowly encircling the major cities, and the area East of the Dnieper River seems to be almost entirely in Russian control. Since this region is a majority-Russian-speaking populace, it seems as though Putin may have an increasingly firmer grip. In the far North, we know Putin already shares control of the Chernobyl nuclear plant site with the Ukrainians, just as he does now at the large power plant in the center of the country, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, located on the Dnieper River.

From the Russian perspective, securing the nuclear sites makes a good deal of sense.  Preventing saboteurs from turning nuclear plants into gargantuan dirty bombs is an important task any invader would be likely to undertake.  One would also expect that if the invaders intended to restore normalcy to an area after pacifying an area, they wouldn’t want to wreck the entire electric infrastructure.  Reports from other areas in the country likewise suggest that the Russian forces may be avoiding unnecessary damage to infrastructure, again suggesting they intend to restore normalcy quickly rather than over decades. This very much flies in the face of the narrative that Putin is a mad-dog wild-man intent upon razing Ukraine utterly to the ground.

Reports now suggest that upwards of two million Ukrainians have fled the country, most for refuge in Poland.  Ukraine forces are under-equipped, and highly demoralized.  Worse, some portion of their forces may have been encircled or nearly encircled in the Eastern section of the country.  On the other hand, the Ukrainians are fighting a defensive war, which means they have the advantage on the turf they still hold.

The issue that came to a head on Wednesday is the matter of biolabs in Ukraine.  There had been a fair amount of rumor-mill level information circulating around the Internet that suggested there were bio-warfare labs in Ukraine, and that Putin was going after them.  Let me try to clear the air on this, since certain conservative hosts seem not to grasp any of this material, while others at least recognize the implications: If there are bio-labs in Ukraine that have been handling dangerous pathogens, then Putin will certainly be able to make the claim, a la “Weapons of Mass Destruction” that he had a right to pre-emptively attack Ukraine to reduce/eliminate the threat.  What could the United States possibly say in opposition? “But Bruh, we’re the good guys…

There are those who have claimed, on behalf of the US government, that these labs are of a defensive purpose only, but let me be more honest: If you have the sort of research labs that’s handling Anthrax, you can just as easily weaponize your research products as not.  More, there’s information that one of the labs was collecting genetic material in which they were seeking only white Russian RNA for experimentation.  Why would a lab in Ukraine do that? That doesn’t sound innocent at all, and once you realize that the US Department of Defense was involved, one can’t understate the potentially diabolical nature of such research.  The fact that Victoria Nuland claims they’re now concerned about the disposition of the labs, and imputing a Russian offensive intent to capturing the labs suggests to me there’s something nefarious that has been going on in Ukraine.  Fifteen of these labs throughout Ukraine were being funded by DoD to at least some degree.  If, and I stress the IF, this turns out to be a collection of real biolabs with weaponization capabilities, then Russia has a legitimate claim that the United States was funding bioweapons on their border, and this would make US the bad guys. I cannot tell you how thoroughly disgusted I am with all of this.  These people, who funded the labs with our tax dollars, all of them, each and every one, needs to go to jail if there is any evidence of weaponization and weapons research for several reasons. First, that would violate the 1972/75 Biological Weapons Conventions. Second, it would likely violate US law.  Third, it could be seen as an act of war or certainly provocation of one.

The other thing I’ve been hearing reports from Ukraine include the fact that the Ukrainian forces are making combat emplacements among civilian homes and facilities in order to stymie Russian advances, knowing Russia is attempting to avoid civilian casualties.  The Russians have been making announcements in some areas, warning civilians to stay out of certain areas in which they intend to attack.  If the story of Ukrainian forces sheltering among or placing weapons among civilians turns out to be true, they are guilty of war crimes by using civilians as shields.

As for the role of the United States in the overall crisis, the following has become undeniably clear:

  • They don’t want to stop Putin yet…They may be looking for an opportunity to set-up Putin with a nuclear, biological, or chemical false flag
  • They will not provide Ukraine any significant weapons of self-defense
  • They’re happy to try to goad other NATO members into stepping into provocative territory
  • They want Putin gone, but they still need his help with the Iran deal
  • If they can’t control Zelenskiy themselves, they’ll happily cut him loose to the fate Russians have in store, if they don’t whack him themselves

One of the other things that’s really beginning to cause my eyebrows to raise is the lack of statistical data on the dead and wounded.  We received reports of incidents here and there, but isn’t it odd that the same media that kept a ticker on dead Americans in Iraq, and deaths and infections from COVID (but only while Trump was in office,) are suddenly disinterested in the statistics? One would think that if it’s all as brutal as we’ve been told, there’d be some sort of, dare I say it, “body count” for either side.  Instead, there’s nothing of the sort.  Given all the coverage of wars I’ve witnessed going all the way back to Vietnam, blaring announcers in grave voices stating the hard and ugly results of war in numerical terms has been a feature for as long as I can remember, until now.  Why should today be different, suddenly?  They ordinarily use these statistics to horrify us and to turn us against whichever war is being prosecuted at the time.  Why are they treating Ukraine differently?  It’s not that I’m a ghoul, but one of the unmistakable evidences of war is the grim reality of the wounded and the dead, and media has been only too willing to show them to us in the past.  I find it highly suspicious that we’re not being shown any of that in the war today.

More and more, as I listen to the coverage, I’ve come to wonder if we’re even given enough information to discern the truth on our own.  Ordinarily, the media gives us just enough to be able to figure out what’s going on, even if they lie entirely about an event’s actual meaning, as is their custom. Now, we get none of this. We get grainy footage, blurred by motion, or static pictures in which nothing is going on, and at most, we’re looking at an aftermath of something, but what happened there and who did it is obscured by time.  What we don’t get is any live footage of ongoing combat. The closest we get is something like an artillery piece, or other long-range or indirect fire weapon firing, with no context about where it’s occurring or what the target of the artillery fire might be.  Where are the media embeds with their satellite up-links?  In the modern context, this “coverage” simply isn’t.  They’ve also cut off all Russian media, so there’s no counterpoint of any kind, and no real-time footage coming from them either. The lack of video of the fighting give me the same feeling I had in the wake of January 6th when the Capitol Police would release little camera footage from among the 14,000 hours they had captured.  Why would you conceal it?

On the Ukrainian side of things, we now have the spectacle of President Zelenskiy accusing the West of doing nothing, which in some ways is definitely true, but what is galling to me is his demands that the West come to his aid.  Here is the spectacle of a beggar waving his fist at those he would have provide him charity.   When asked about the danger of escalation, he remarks that any such dangers are unknown or unknowable, and with that, we should simply ignore the risk.  At least for me, there’s something offensive about a country’s leader telling Americans that they’re to blame, and that he’s not worried about the blowback from any escalation on our country.  It’s just a little bit galling.  We’ve already provided much more support over the years than I would have approved, had I been given a choice. (Of course, that sentiment applies to many more nations than Ukraine.)  Here’s video from an interview by Sky News:

The accusations flying back and forth over the biolabs situation has not abated, and Psaki issued a blanket denial of US involvement in bioweapons labs in Ukraine, and called Russian and Chinese accusations of this “conspiracy theories.’  When Jen Psaki says a narrative is a “conspiracy theory,” you can be virtually certain that the opposite is true:

I think this is made plain, at least in part, by Victoria Nuland’s own remarks to Senator Rubio on Tuesday.  I’ll re-post the video here:

Notice that Nuland says there are concerns that these biological materials could fall into Russian hands?  Why would there be concern if there’s nothing dangerous there, as Psaki later claimed?

The question for Americans is rightly: Who’s lying?  It’s not a question any longer of whether you’re being fed lies.  The question is: Among all the liars involved, which of them is currently lying to you?  Maybe all of them are liars to some degree.  We can’t know, but the very fact that we need to speculate underlines the problem.  I don’t trust any of these people.  As I covered earlier, people I’ve trusted for a long time are now unreliable.  From the point of view of somebody covering this story, it’s a catastrophe.  There’s no way to know anything with certainty, and at least for the moment, it’s being kept that way. This crisis of facts is the underpinning of Bongino’s “Crisis of Truth,” and I see no evidence of the crisis relenting.

 

 

 

 

Engineering Oil Price Spikes

Tuesday, March 8th, 2022

Driving you into acceptance of new Iran Deal

I’ve been pondering a number of questions over the last several days, and one that has dominated my mind is the question about Iran’s involvement in our Ukraine policy.  From the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, I could see the American population being herded by all the usual suspects.  Their own government and media have been lying to them consistently and recklessly about the situation in Ukraine.  One of the things that struck me is that they seem to be intentionally pushing oil prices through the roof. With every bit of bellicose rhetoric from the Biden administration and the morons on Capitol Hill, the media blasts it through the world, creating more uncertainty and more panic.  At the same time, refusing to unleash our own oil production, in fact, having spiked it from the inception of Biden’s presidency, it became clear to me that they want oil prices to go higher.  Apart from the usual reasons of profiteering by individual members of Congress and the Administration, there had to be a reason.  My recent contemplation of the Iran Deal they’re trying to make tempted me to ask:  How could they get Americans, but more importantly, members of Congress, to go along with the new JCPoA(Iran Deal)?  What is it going to take in an election year to make that go? I began to wonder: If they could push the price of oil so far that it would put a serious pinch on Americans, would they and their Congressional representatives fold for any deal that brought them a respite from the high oil prices?  If you want Americans to accept the Iran deal, promise it will provide a drastic reduction in prices in the midst of a war-driven price-spike! Problem solved.  They’re driving the oil-price spike in order to gain easier acceptance of the Iran deal.

Yes, they built the carrot and now they’re wielding the stick.  By the time they’re done with you, you’ll be happy to pay for Iranian oil.  As Gateway Pundit reported on Tuesday morning, the Iranians stand to make out like bandits in the deal.  Frankly, I can’t see anything in the deal for America.  It would seem to me the American people would make out better with no deal, but this deal lifts sanctions on Iran, including Iranian oil. According to Gateway Pundit, the Russian leading the negotiating team(on behalf of the United States(!!!)), Mikhail Ulyanov, is quoted as saying:

“Iran got much more than it could expect.”

What’s more remarkable to me is that I am not able to find any reference to what America will get from this deal, other than promises.  It seems as though the United States is giving up all sanctions, just as in the first JCPoA, all we did was pay billions electronically, and also pallets of cash to the mullahs, while getting what amounted to very thin promises about nuclear weapons development.  It’s senseless.  The biggest concession, in terms of the long-run value to the Iranians leadership, is the removal of all sanctions on Iranian oil.  I now believe this is why the oil prices needed to spike from this administration’s perspective.  They’re putting the squeeze on us to accept the deal.  Other than worthless promises, what is the United States getting?  Why is the Biden administration so desperate to have a deal again?  What’s in it for the DC Mafia? What’s in it for us? This is the problem, from my point of view: There’s nothing in it for we, the American people, but if you wanted to make a show of it, you could put in “and oil supplies available to America will increase dramatically.”

Why is getting the Iran deal so important to these people that they’ve essentially provoked Russia into invading Ukraine to set up the conditions under which the American people and Congress might be driven to accept it?

Update: Tom Rogan of the Washington Examiner has a source who tells him that the Biden administration is avoiding pursuing a big public case over the would-be assassins who wanted to take out former National Security Adviser John Bolton because it could hurt new Iran deal negotiations.

They’re part of “Mainstream Media” now…

If you’re unfamiliar with the work of Emerald Robinson, I’d commend it to you. I try to check in at her site frequently, because she does a fantastic job of digging-up the truth.  In this case, she’s managed to uncover a story of corruption in media.  As it turns out, FoxNews and Newsmax along with many other channels were actively suppressing employees from expressing or reporting any stories questioning the efficacy or safety of vaccines?  Why?  It’s always the same reason: Money.  In this case, the government was paying millions to so-called news outlets to propagandize you with your own tax dollars.  It’s scandalous, and you should know all about it. It’s clear that Fox News and Newsmax are part of “mainstream media” now.

Levin Nearly Stumbles Into Truth About Ukraine

Saturday, March 5th, 2022

Levin lays out the initial case on March 5th 2017 for Spygate

Only one day after I reflected on Mark Levin’s amazing ability to sift through piles of mainstream media reports to assemble the hidden truth, he very nearly did it again on Friday evening’s broadcast.  He still hasn’t clarified for his audience that the claims of cluster-bombs and thermobaric bombs are unverified, unconfirmed reports, much to my chagrin, but in discussing the goings-on in Washington DC he swerved ever so close to the truth, again.  I keep hoping he’ll step back from the Ukraine story just a little farther, just enough to clear his senses and conquer his emotions.  If he does, he’s a man with the resources and skills to finally sort out the truth of this mess.  At this point, Levin should begin asking himself that question that any good lawyer must do when trying to formulate a theory of a case: What’s the motive driving the behavior of the Biden administration in Ukraine?  I believe Levin is so close to the truth that if he sets aside his emotions about Ukraine for a few moments, and sinks his teeth into all of this, it’s game over.  He’ll sniff it out, and he’ll realize that what’s happening in Ukraine isn’t purely about Ukraine or Putin at all.  That’s the side-show.  That’s the pay-off.  That’s the clean-up on aisle twelve.  He came very near to the central issue, and I hope he soon realizes it.  I believe he could very well blow the lid off of Washington DC for a generation or more. Today, at the last possible moment before the “Eureka!” that should have come, he swerved off down another emotionally-driven side issue.  He’s so maddeningly close that I almost wish he’d happen by this website.  It’s time for Mark Levin to return to his lists of facts and his prosecutorial style.

As a reminder, if you haven’t see it before, or simply need the refresher, this is what it’s like when Levin gets on one of his epic tears, here laying out the case that the Obama administration spied on Trump from Fox and Friends on March 5th, 2017, five years ago today:

The questions you must ask require that you first recognize that the Ukraine catastrophe is not an isolated event, separate and apart from all other events. I urge Mark Levin and anybody else digging into this to consider that we see all the same players involved in all of these matters, from Ukraine during the Obama administration, to the Russia Hoax of the Trump campaign, to SpyGate that extended into the Trump administration, the “Mueller Probe,” the first impeachment, the January 6th event, the second impeachment, and the election theft of 2020.  What’s conspicuous by its absence from this list, that we ought not to omit?  Once we add it to the list, the smoke begins to clear, and it all begins to make more sense:  The Iran Nuclear Deal.  Remember that the Iran Nuclear Deal was only made possible by a sell-out Republican Senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker(RINO,) who concocted a bill that allowed the Senate to bypass the treaty clause of the constitution, ignoring the necessity for a two-thirds vote for its ratification. Combine it all with the situation in Ukraine, and the behaviors of the Biden administration, and it all makes so much more sense.

I won’t tell you that I have all the details, but instead, I’m going to paint a broad-strokes picture.  It would take somebody like a Levin to assemble a clearer picture, and indeed, today, Mark Levin provided another piece of the puzzle.  He is so, so very close, and I believe if he returns to his dispassionate review of facts, and digs into this a bit harder, he’s going to put it together.  I can almost hear the beginnings of the percolating of connections as he covers some of the facts.  What Levin revealed is that the Biden administration is permitting the Russians to negotiate with Iran on behalf of the United States for the new nuclear deal.  Remember the pallets of cash?  There’s going to be much more. Much, much more.  Biden has made concessions to the Russians, which is why this administration won’t do anything about Ukraine.  It’s part of the deal.  This is the part Mark Levin isn’t quite guessing yet, at least not clearly.  Levin made mention of Ted Cruz’s National Security advisor, Victoria Coates.  I hope he posts a link to the paper or article from which he’s drawing this information. (Update: One of my sharpest followers on Twitter found the story here. Thanks @ginthegin! If you don’t already, give her a follow!)

There is more that stinks in Ukraine than just the money-laundering of the Obama-Clinton-Biden gang. I told you nearly one week ago that based on reports of Biden providing security intelligence to the Russians via China, that I believed this was being done purposefully because Putin is going to carry out the cleanup in Ukraine, in exchange for the ability to have his way with that beleaguered, historically corrupt former Soviet satellite.  This is the reason for the ineffective and purposefully ineffectual sanctions against Russia.  In the end, I expect the Russians to control at least the Eastern half of Ukraine, if not the whole.  This is being done with a wink and nod from the Biden administration.  Why?

What would make people of this supposed stature so desperate that they would give up their money-laundry in Ukraine?  What would make people like this yield and let the RUSSIANS(!!!!!!) carry out negotiations on behalf of the United States with Iran?  What would make them do so? Talk about “COLLUSION!”

This is speculation, but Russia would be free to discuss anything they liked with the Iranians, even things quite damaging to the Americans involved, without any worry that it would ever be disclosed.  There’s no FOIA to worry about in Russia.  There’s nothing they couldn’t hide within these negotiations. As long as the final product is something they can shove through the Congress in the next few months, the sausage-making aspects of the agreement will remain forever opaque.  The American people will never know, but Putin will have a permanent lever to use against these people. That lever will be whatever the Iranians already have, or at least knowledge of it.  I don’t know what the Iranians have on the American Political Mafia, but it’s big.  One rumor several years ago, a rumor I could not confirm, was that they had Osama bin Laden. Alive. It sounds just as fantastic now as it did then, but there was always something about the story that rang true.  Of course, an extraordinary story of that sort would require equally extraordinary evidence, so I won’t posit this as the actual dirt, but if you use it as a proxy for the kind of dirt they must have, it would require something of that magnitude to explain the behavior we’ve witnessed.

The problem is that Putin was always going to demand “cash on the barrel-head” from these people. There will be no IOUs with Putin from this gang of American political mobsters.  He needed payment up front, which meant: No sanctions of lasting consequence; any sanctions must be a functional fan-dances, but also, no interference in or substantial aid(particularly lethal) to Ukraine.  Putin is going to clean up the evidence for these “DeepState” players, but the price is that he gets Ukraine, and who knows what else, ultimately.  They pretend Putin’s insane.  That’s misdirection and misinformation: He’s as coldly calculating as he’s ever been. He’s still a murderer, but right now, he’s their contract-killer.

Why? Why would they give up all of this?  In part, the answer lies in the clean-up Putin is doing, but the greater will be in the clean-up he’s doing for them on the new Iran Deal he’s negotiating on their behalf.  Levin has the first part of this figured out.  He sees that the reason the Biden administration is doing nothing effective with respect to punishing Putin is because they’re in league with Putin.  He may not be a team-mate, precisely, but he’s a contractor. He’s a hired hit-man.  He’s behaving as their agent.  If he disappears or outright kills Zelenskiy, so much the better.  Despite what you may have heard, Zelenskiy is no angel either.  He just has better press than his predecessor, and slightly less corruption.  Rather than seeking to protect Zelenskiy, the American mobsters may very well want him taken out.

Why?  I think they’re desperate to make the new deal with Iran.  I think the reason Obama and Kerry and others spent so much time trying to talk to the Iranians during Trump’s presidency was to say “look, we’ll fix this, don’t burn us, we’ll fix it and we’ll get you greater concessions and even more cash. Just stick with us until we ditch Trump.”  Remember Obama’s world-wide private shuttle-diplomacy during Trump’s presidency?  Obama and his crew are being blackmailed by the Iranians.  For what?  They used Ukraine as a cut-out and as a money laundry.  We’ve all assumed it was for mere greed on their parts, but was it something more?  Who else was in on the grift?  The reason they had to bring Putin in was because the Iranians no longer trust the Obama-Clinton-Biden gangsters.  If you can imagine it, the Iranians consider Putin to be an “honest broker,” or at least a devil they’ll trust. He stands to gain mightily in all of this, as he’ll undoubtedly make sure Russia provides them the nuclear expertise to finally build their own nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

This is why they had to dispense with Trump.  It has to be.  Their actions were so outrageous, they pulled every string, they called in every marker, they sacrificed sleepers, and they made their play to steal the election with no regard to how obvious it would be.  They pulled in every RINO, every DeepStaters, they used their corrupt federal judges, they played all their crooked friends at DOJ, including Bill Barr.  They worked every line. Had they gotten Garland onto the Supreme Court, they’d have had this crook in the most important court.  That doesn’t mean they didn’t sneak one in anyway.

You wonder why Amy Coney Barrett and Bret Kavanaugh now look to have been dud picks?  Can you see it?  Washington DC is full of people, everywhere, and in every guise, who are on the hook with this crowd.  They played every angle.  If they’re ever discovered and proven guilty, they’re on the hook for more than election fraud.  This is treason, pure and simple.  This is their gang making war against the United States and her people.

What is it that the Iranians have on these people? That’s what really lies at the bottom of this cesspool.  If Mark Levin figures out that piece of it, and if he can substantially tie it back to the rest of these pieces, he’ll blow the lid off of it all like he did five years ago this week, when he put together the Spygate story, at least the basic guts of it.  I fear for Mark.  These people are ruthless.  They’ve killed other prominent people to hide their crimes.  If he uncovers too much, will he end up like Antonin Scalia?  (Dead in bed with a pillow over his face?  No autopsy, assumptions about his heart conditions and age, a quick cremation, and a family that looks as though they’ve been told: “Hey, everybody can be gotten-to?”)

I know this must all sound a little bit crazy, but I want you, my reader, to think carefully about what you’ve seen over the last dozen years.  Why did Lindsey Graham do a two-year stint as chairman of a committee, shifting from another when he did?  Mitch McConnell didn’t make that play accidentally.  He put Graham there to guide through nominees for a particular purpose.  It’s all very peculiar once you think about it.  Lindsey Graham’s tough-talk about Putin is a smokescreen.  The last thing he wants is Putin dead.  That was a message to Putin.  It was a signal, but not the sort you’d think based on its content.  There’s a reason Kamala is being sent to Europe again, and it has nothing to do with peace.  It has everything to do with avoiding the ever-listening ears of the NSA.  Who better than the 3rd Term of the Obama Administration to understand the capabilities of our surveillance?  It has to do with the fact that you never say over any electronic communications platform that which you do not want overheard, intercepted, or copied by anyone.

The freedom of the Ukrainian people is being sacrificed on the altar of the American political mafia that is the DC UniParty.  Putin is not a mad-man. He’s a hired gun who will be paid handsomely for his efforts.  Crimea was the first installment.  At least the Eastern half of the Ukraine will be the second installment.  Ask yourself what Rosemont Seneca was really all about.  Why did it have dealings with EcoHealth Alliance?  Ask yourself who really got paid after Rosatom secured the Uranium.  It’s the same crowd.  They’re in on all of it.  “I’ll have more flexibility after this election.”  You’re witnessing treason.

If somebody ever puts the full story together, we’re going to discover that these people are willing to see all of us reduced to glowing, irradiated ash, hopefully before they resort to that action.

As one positive note, it’s clear that Levin has finally realized that Bill Barr isn’t a good guy. Score that as a win. One of Levin’s biggest weaknesses is that he’s too easily played by the personal congeniality of these monsters, and they exploit it, and him, repeatedly.  Their real aim is ever to exploit his audience.  Dearest Mark needs to view them all as ruthless killers, smile at them, make nice, and assume they’re preparing to stick a shiv between his ribs, striking them first instead.  (Figuratively speaking, of course.)  We need Levin at the top of his analytical game, more now than ever.  Maybe this time, it will fall to somebody else to figure it all out.  There are amazingly enterprising researchers and investigators still around.  The excellent reporter Julie Kelly comes to mind.  She’s a pitbull when she sinks her teeth into a story.  Let’s hope one of them picks up the mantle if Levin fails to spot it this time. I’m still hoping Mark will put it together. He’s a sharp guy, and I think he’s really close now. It’s too simple and it would be foolishly naïve to think it’s only about the left’s normal agenda of destroying America.  It’s bigger than that, and it’s more brutally criminal than that.  These people are personally invested in seeing this through in a way that suggests they’re covering-up something much more diabolical than the usual political subterfuge.  There’s a reason Obama isn’t enjoying retirement, and it isn’t because he dreams of spending his days wrecking America from his basement in Martha’s Vineyard.  His third term is about the survival of the American political mafia, or the “Deep State,” if you prefer.  They’re all in now.  Everything is on the line. Everything.

Update: At the time I wrote this post, Levin’s show of Friday, March 4th, 2022 was not yet available on his audio rewind page. It is now. Listen here.

Update 2: How convenient: Bill Clinton announces the Clinton Global Initiative is back!  The DC Mafia won’t give up the grift.

Editor’s Note: For those who think the notion that Vladimir Putin could be “in on it” with these people is a ludicrous proposition, I’d remind you: Nothing in geopolitics is ever as it seems. Remember when Putin was loved in Hollywood? No? Remember this, from the era of Hillary’s infamous reset button:

Embarrassing Loss of Credibility in Talk Radio in the Era of FakeNews

Thursday, March 3rd, 2022

The difficult chore of maintaining credibility in the era of FakeNews

It started in a big way last week. Dan Bongino violated his own self-imposed “72 hour rule” with the story of the Snake Island story from Ukraine. Before the weekend was over, he’d discovered that he’d been misled like so many others, promptly informing his listeners of that fact on Monday.  Dan’s “72 hour rule” is that when some new story of bomb-shell proportions comes along, he tends to hold onto them in order to verify the stories multiple ways before repeating them to his audience.  Many others have seemingly been duped, repeatedly, and it’s a real problem, because while they may not be the ones originating the story, they’re the ones repeating it to their audiences.  From the point of view of their audiences then, for all intents and purposes, they are originating the stories.  On Tuesday, as is my habit while driving home, and as soon as I walk in the door, I tuned into Mark Levin’s show.  Levin, long my runaway favorite among talk-show hosts, began in on a story in which he described the workings and effects of thermobaric bombs.  He explained that Russia was using them. He also explained that Russia was using cluster-bombs against civilian areas, despite the bombs having been banned for use against civilians.  Within less than twenty hours, these reports had been smashed when Bongino said on air on Wednesday that these reports hadn’t panned-out.  A little digging revealed that this had been a completely unconfirmed report, and initially, there was a video discounted as fake by the gentleman in charge of the political subdivision in which it had allegedly occurred.  The claims about cluster bombs are likewise unconfirmed, except that in Eastern Ukraine, there’s some evidence the Ukrainian forces have used them.  At this moment, there is still no firm evidence that either side has used them, but even as of this moment, you can surf over to Levin’s site for his Tuesday Recap page and find the unverified claims about their use by Russia, along with the false claim that these weapons are altogether forbidden.  He also claimed during his on-air description that the thermobaric bombs constitute a chemical weapon, which they most certainly are not.  All of this made it plain to me in a very painful way that my favorite among talk-show hosts, Mark Levin, a guy I have enjoyed more even than Rush over the years, had now joined the legion of outlets I generally consider #FakeNews.  It’s both shocking and saddening to me.  We have so few media outlets we can take at face value.  Whether by negligence or intent or because they’ve simply been fooled by others, it’s clear now that just when we need them most, most all media, even supposed “conservative” media, lie to us in varying degrees.  Though I neither feel it should be my place, nor do I feel I have the heart to do the matter full justice, I must now take on “the Great One,” for the sake of my own integrity.

This is and has been the greatest disappointment of the last several years, and it began during the era of Trump, not because of anything Trump did, but because since the rise of Trump, any pretense at objectivity has been ditched in mainstream media, from CNN to MSNBC to Reuters to FoxNews.  Media outlets have become so uniformly unreliable in so many ways for people like talk-show hosts, who must rely upon valid and factual news stories to fuel the discussions they will spawn with their audiences.  The underlying information is so frequently inaccurate that talk-show hosts are finding it difficult to stay ahead of the fake news injected at light-speed into the conversation.  Don’t misunderstand me to have said that I believe Mark Levin or Dan Bongino are liars, but that they now serve as a conduit through which lies are smuggled to their predominantly conservative audiences.  I don’t believe this is their intention, but I suspect that applies to many other talkers.  It’s that they’ve come to rely on sources that are corrupt or corruptible.  It’s happened to me a time or two over the last eleven years here on this blog, usually in very small ways I’ve rushed to correct.  The problem is that at the speed with which information now propagates upon its release in modern media, a lie can do real damage to our world, in ways that could be measured in millions of lives.

When the pandemic coverage had begun in 2020, I’d already suspected Fauci of giving us all a load of internally inconsistent nonsense.  From a logical point of view, many of his pronouncements didn’t make sense.  His answers were either unnecessarily evasive or expressed with unjustifiable certitude.  Some of it was simply nonsensical.  Mark Levin was among the first people in conservative media who featured Fauci as a guest, on his show on Foxnews.  Fauci used Levin’s credibility with his conservative audience to ensnare them with his now largely-debunked and almost completely refuted narratives.  I dare Mark Levin to now go back and re-watch the garbage he permitted Fauci to spew under the banner of “Life, Liberty and Levin,” and tell me that somehow, he feels unashamed for having failed his audience.  He should feel pain if he now re-watches that episode, particularly considering that people made life-and-death-level decisions based on Fauci’s pronouncements early on.  Mark Levin is a trusted source among conservatives like me.  You can do the math.  The fact that Fauci was saying these things on Levin’s show made them seem more reliable.  Silly, gullible me. While I still didn’t trust Fauci, I did trust Mark Levin, and Fauci had now been given Levin’s virtual imprimatur.  Fool me once…

Less than one year later, on January 6th, 2021, I listened as Mark Levin came on the radio and raged against the rioters at the Capitol on that day.  He railed against the people at the Capitol, as if they were the terrorists my gut said they hadn’t really been, at least most of them.  I listened, and I began to get that sickly feeling of disappointment.  Was Levin falling for another false story?  Since then, Levin has clearly realized, due to in-depth reporting by people like Julie Kelly, that he wasn’t getting the full story then, either. This entire episode had been frustrating to me because I actually know a man who observed some of what went on at the Capitol that day, during the event, from outside the Capitol, where he could see much of what was going on.  While he never went into or anywhere near the scrum going on outside, he was in a position to see that there were numerous and obvious provocateurs.  He told me that at one point, it became clear to him that at least some of the Capitol Police appeared to be acting in collusion with some of the provocateurs.  Many innocent dupes followed the provocateurs into the Capitol, and my friend could see this happening. Some of the dupes were even drawn into a melee with police by the provocateurs, which happens quite easily in a crowd this size.  As these events were happening, I was in my office listening to accounts of it, live on the radio, wondering immediately if this was another DC-UniParty setup.  Why wasn’t that Levin’s first instinct?  He has enough experience to have spotted it.  I live half a continent away, but I can smell DC BS from the other side of the planet these days.  This event had that stench from the beginning.  Despite our shared experience of the last several years, for more than a few radio hosts, it wasn’t so obvious for some reason, but should have been.  Instead, we got the usual “we condemn all violence” business, in a fashion no different than Chris Wallace repeatedly demanding that Trump denounce white supremacists on the debate stage, starting from the ridiculous premise that Trump were some sort of racist who now needed to renounce such associations.  Conservatives must lose their fear of these smear-jobs, because it cripples them, not only politically but also intellectually, which is the intent of the smear-artists. For all appearances to the world, Levin and many other hosts were pushing the mainstream media, DC UniParty narrative, again.

Levin is a passionate advocate for positions in the information sphere, as am I, which is undoubtedly a large measure of what draws me to his broadcasts daily.  I don’t make decisions about issues or candidates on the basis of emotion, but instead take a firm and careful accounting of them.  Once I’ve done so, I then apply my passion to the conclusions I’ve drawn in explaining an issue or advocating a particular stance.  The problem that arises for people like Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, or anybody else in the broadcast space is that things move incredibly fast.  Information blasts in and out, and it is updated and superseded by better, more accurate information, but also sometimes more bogus, inflated, and hyped information.  It happens constantly.  In this environment, one is going to make judgments about the newsworthiness of a story in an accelerated frame of reference, and it will necessarily lead to a much higher rate of error than it will, for instance, on a lowly blog published in the backwaters of the Internet. Some of the posts here are composed, fact-checked, and pushed out in thirty minutes or less, but those are rare. In the main, the postings on this site will have taken hours to compose, sometimes days, or longer, and I’ve been known to table a story indefinitely if I think my information isn’t solid enough. If you were to have access to what’s here, you would see that I have almost half as many posts in “draft” status as the almost fourteen-hundred posts that have been published over the span of years. Those drafts are posts you cannot see, and many of them you will likely never see, but this is the process. If a story just doesn’t stand up as I think it should, it’s never published. That’s born of the luxury of knowing I’ll almost never be “first” with a story, and that all I can offer is a unique perspective, or new details you hadn’t been presented before, and because the speed at which I present information is far less important to my audience than the idea that I get it right.

Levin sometimes has excellent instincts.  In March of 2017, based on a smattering of seemingly unrelated stories across several media outlets including McClatchy and the New York Times, Levin’s good instinct for political chicanery by Democrats led him to piece together the story we’ve all come to know is SpyGate, which actually encompasses a whole universe of sub-scandals, from spying on the Trump campaign and presidency, to the use of that information to concoct two fake impeachment narratives.  The chicanery also revealed what should be the biggest scandal of all: The corruption of the FISA system by actors within the Justice Department and the FBI, along with others both directing and participating in these activities in the administration, and on the FISA court.  What Levin’s instinct (and experience within the DOJ)provided him was the starting point for unveiling what should be known as the greatest scandal in American history, but for the fact that the corrupt and corruptible media will never willingly report on it.  Claims that Levin is incapable of stellar research and investigation are to be ignored.  It’s clear he has the experience and clear-eyed thinking to analyze such things.  Why does it seem, of late, that he’s not nearly so clear-eyed in his appraisals?  We can always forgive errors born of honest intent, but the problem is that media will attack even for those sorts of instances.

Levin bitterly complained after a small error in his most recent book, runaway New York Times best-seller American Marxism, was made out to be a mortal sin by a few among the chattering class in the leftist mainstream media.  In general, his books are extremely informative and well-written. They’re amazingly well-researched and thoroughly documented. Few authors go to the lengths to provide the citations that Levin routinely does within the pages of his books.  The problem is that when those critics reviewing your books are doing so with a political bias and intent, what you get instead of honest critiques are partisan hit-jobs.  Levin made the error of writing “Franklin School” instead of “Frankfurt School,” as if that’s not an easy mistake to make and and a more difficult error to spot in editing. From the point of view of the full-tilt leftist media, this was the worst scandal in literary history, and they used it to libel him mercilessly.  There’s a vast difference between an innocent error and the intentional falsehoods leftists publications gin through their presses and websites daily.

One of the problems is that in broadcasting, information moves extremely rapidly, and if you let yourself become emotionally invested in your conclusions about a given story too quickly, you’re going to get burned, quickly losing the trust of your audience, particularly if you don’t forthrightly confront the story’s inaccuracies or plain falsehoods promptly, as Bongino did on Monday and again Wednesday.   In the case of Mark Levin, I’ve come to a crossroad due to this trouble.  As a matter of loyalty for all his years of hard work, honest advocacy, and excellent programming, I am easily persuaded to give him another chance.  And another.  And probably several more.  The crisis I’m beginning to experience is that this has become something of a trend, but more importantly, he surely became aware between his broadcasts of Tuesday and Wednesday that the use of thermobaric or cluster bombs (by either party) in the war in Ukraine are unconfirmed.  I listened intently to the whole of his Wednesday broadcast, as I do most days, waiting for him to step right into the matter and clear it up. He never did.

Another sin of Levin’s is made up of his best intentions to advance conservatism.  On many more than one occasion, due to his desire to defeat the left, he’s let alleged conservatives on the air, generally Republicans seeking election/re-election, who come on to use his platform in a political season, often seeking his endorsement or even just the legitimacy among conservatives lent to them by appearing on his airwaves.  Lindsey Graham?  Kevin McCarthy?  There are more.  Too many, really.  I remember yelling at my radio, riding down the road “Mark, why do you bring these RINOs on your program? They’re going to screw you and betray us as soon as they’re re-elected.”  Well?  Have they?  Yes, sadly they have.  Levin himself was gently commenting on this recently.  He knows.  What he may not realize is how thoroughly it harms his credibility.

Since the beginning of the Russian attack on Ukraine, Levin has begun to bang the pots and pans indicating he’s very much in favor of some kind of intervention, or at least assistance to the beleaguered people of Ukraine.  It’s leading him to accept too quickly the dis/misinformation he’s getting from some source(s), perhaps at Foxnews, or perhaps elsewhere.  This has begun to seriously impact his credibility.  On Wednesday evening, my worst fears in this vein were realized when he began gushing over Never-Trumper FoxNews Pentagon Correspondent, Jennifer Griffin, who’s a known leftist, clearly committed to corrupting news over at FoxNews.  She’s one of the demons involved in the fake, ridiculous story about Trump at Normandy back in 2018, in which he allegedly called service-members who died there “suckers.” At the time of the story, Griffin said she was “unable to confirm the more salacious details,” implying she had confirmed the less salacious details, which naturally, she hadn’t.  The whole story was later debunked, but as usual, the debunking never received coverage to scale of its the story’s original propagation.  If this is one of Levin’s routine sources on national security matters, then nothing he says on the subject is even remotely reliable any longer.  I get it: He’s not a reporter, but he still has some obligation to the facts, and he needs to be more discerning in selecting his sources.  Neither Griffin nor Baier, both to whom Levin seems to have some unusual attachment, are what I would consider reliable or even particularly passable sources.  Before going on an anger-fueled rant about how he’d happily provide his own weapons to the people of Ukraine, perhaps it would be a good idea to verify the reports of cluster-bombs and thermobaric bombs allegedly employed by the Russians.  When it turns out, less than one day later, that the stories were either false or at least unverified, what then can he say to pull back on the bombast?  It’s too late. Elvis has left the building.  The best he can do is to retract the story later, but how does he then retract the bombast?  He almost certainly won’t.  He’s likely to leave that part stand, despite being at least partially motivated by the false stories.  This is the danger of the passion when driven by unchecked or unverified information.  As of now, he’s still letting the thermobaric and cluster bomb stories stand.  I suppose he hopes we won’t notice, or that the unverified stories will become verified, or even mooted by future verified use.

Bongino was more measured Wednesday, having mostly abandoned the narrative that Putin had become unhinged and “irrational,” instead pulling it back to “unpredictable.”  The interesting part about that is that in times past, Bongino had criticized Biden for destroying any “strategic ambiguity,” while praising Trump for having maintained it.  “Strategic ambiguity” consists, in part, of unpredictability. On Monday and Tuesday, he had relentlessly pounded on the idea that Putin was perhaps irrational or even insane.  It doesn’t help that this has been the mainstream media and UniParty narrative. Here is Hillary Clinton from Tuesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show:

Notice that Clinton questions Putin’s state of mind too.  It’s foolish to assume your enemy is a crackpot because he’s become less predictable.  In time of War, I would in many respects seek to make myself as unpredictable as possible to adversaries and enemies.  It would be my intention to keep them guessing, and I’d want them to worry mightily about my willingness to ratchet-up the intensity or scope of the war.  Bongino likes to talk about how President Trump had maintained a cloak of “strategic ambiguity” around his foreign policy intentions.  Why would Putin behave differently?  In contrast, Clinton famously had her reset button with the Russians while serving as Secretary of State, a job she was woefully ill-equipped to perform.  Fortunately for her, it did give her access to bilk much of the globe with her Clinton Foundation.  It was strictly a cash-and-carry operation, and there was no “strategic ambiguity” in it.  Her mission was to cart away cash, and Russia fully understood it.

The other thing clear in the video is that the DC UniParty establishment is trying to capture the mantle of Ronald Reagan, as they continue their anti-Trump narrative.  People like Levin and Bongino need to think very carefully about who’s providing the information they now rely upon to make pronouncements about Ukraine.  If I could ask either man a question, I think I might pose it this way:

Consider the following list of names: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Mitt Romney, Adam Schiff, Susan Rice, Eric Swalwell, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney, Fiona Hill, “Colonel” Vindman, Victoria Nuland, Ron Klain, and Jake Sullivan.

Now consider the events in Ukraine since roughly 2004.  Then consider the activities of that list of people(and other cohorts) over the intervening period. Then, consider the following facts: In 2014, with funding and assistance from the US State Department, US DOD, and various US intelligence agencies, there was a coup d’etat in Ukraine.  Essentially, the US fomented and funded regime-change in Ukraine. Ever since, the narrative in DC by the establishment, particularly the Democrats, has been “Russia, Russia, Russia.” Even Mitt Romney talked about Russia in his debate appearance, but Obama immediately deflected the question by mocking Romney.  Had Romney inadvertently let a cat escape the proverbial bag?

Now ask: How many of the people listed above were involved in the RussiaHoax/SpyGate, the First Impeachment of Trump, the Second Impeachment of Trump, and how many had a hand in the January sixth story, events, and subsequent narrative? How many are now pushing the official DC UniParty’s Ukraine narrative, in concert with corrupt and corruptible media?

The media lies endlessly to us, and those lies don’t stop with events beyond the water’s edge.  Meanwhile, I have to hear Levin questioning the patriotism of Americans who are questioning the official DC narrative, or suggesting they’re Russophiles or similar garbage.  That’s what I expect from Hillary Clinton, so that when I hear it coming from the radio in Mark Levin’s voice, I must ask him: “What in the Hell are you thinking?” Why would Mark Levin now take up the “Russia, Russia, Russia” allegations of Hillary Clinton only to aim them against members of his own audience? On the basis of information from which sources?  Jennifer-freaking-Griffin???

These two men have repeatedly demonstrated their capacity for intense investigations and research, but they’ve been steered in the Ukraine story largely by emotion, driven by many false stories, false narratives, and imagery that’s been created but unsubstantiated in far too many cases. In media generally, we’ve been shown a story about Miss Ukraine, bearing arms and ready to fight, but the rifle she’s pictured with is an airsoft rifle, (airsoft being a sport she enjoys.)  We’ve been told about the “Ghost of Kiev,” by such low-lifes as Adam Kinzinger, that has turned out to be an utter hoax.  The Snake Island story turned out to be propaganda in the larger dimension:  It appears that rather than having been killed after telling their Russian attackers to “Go F’ themselves,” they laid down their arms in surrender, and are now all safe, albeit disarmed and removed from the battlefield.  We’ve had a member of the Ukrainian Parliament tell the world that she’s fighting “not only for Ukraine, but for the New World Order.”  We’ve had every manner of false story propagating, not merely from the combatants, but particularly from the Western media.  The number of fabricated, concocted stories coming out of the war zone are far too numerous to list here. Even the imagery is frequently suspect, as reported elsewhere on this site.

That Levin and Bongino walked into some of these stories is no surprise.  I too was sucked into one of them early on.  The Snake Island story recalled the bravado and courage of the Alamo, until it didn’t.  What’s been surprising and disappointing is how thoroughly Levin has been entirely swamped by some of it.  Bongino corrected the record, in his defense and to his credit.  So far, Levin has not, and he’s not backed-off his bombastic declarations about his willingness to ship arms to a country that has been a playground for the DC UniParty’s money-launderers.  The alleged brave acts(it’s not that I doubt the bravery of Ukrainians, but only the veracity of this narrative) are being pushed in media with a reckless disregard for fact-checking and verification, which is the definition of war-time propaganda.  The “fog of war” only clears if we work to make that hapen.  It’s important for talkers to right their ships when they get a story wrong.  Sometimes, it’s understandable and forgivable if the host makes amends by leading with the truth or a correction at the next available opportunity, as Bongino has done this week.  We need solid information, and while I still want the passion both men bring to their respective endeavors in media, I have to insist that they improve their information-vetting, by reconsidering the sources they now employ.  Clearly, some of those sources are of dubious veracity.  I enjoy the presentations of each man, both interesting and entertaining, as well as bracing and motivating, but I need the foundation to be solid.  Everybody makes mistakes, me included, but there are innocent errors and errors of incomplete information, but there are also errors born of haste, undue passion, lack of due diligence and malice.  I expect the former to happen from time to time, and they are entirely generally to be forgiven upon forthright correction.  The other sort, when they become habitual, threaten to turn an outlet or a show into nothing better than another mainstream media outlet: Corrupt or corruptible.  This also applies to many others in the conservative space.  In a moment of excess passion, it could easily happen to me.  We must fight against this kind pollution of facts driven by our own intemperance, but we must also hold outlets and hosts accountable.  I need Levin to correct the record, telling his audience that reports of thermobaric bombs or cluster bombs intentionally targeting civilians are unconfirmed, unverified reports at this time.  In fact, their use at all remains unverified.  These weapons are indeed nasty, but the US has employed cluster-bombs too.  Ask the Iraqis.  Ask the Afghans.  What makes their use illegal, like so many weapons of war, is their use in the intentional targeting of civilians.  Under various international treaties and conventions, doing so constitutes a war crime.  It’s important for Levin to fix this at the next opportunity, and as ever, at least for the moment, I’ll be listening this evening to see if he will.

 

 

The Western Fan-Dance Over Ukraine

Saturday, February 26th, 2022

A Fan-dance of Unity, Strength and Virtue

As Western leaders posture in endless pouty, moralistic denunciations of Vladimir Putin and the Russians, I think it’s past time to look this dragon in the teeth, but also assess the countless Western Weasels who will do nothing substantial. Germany is perhaps the most useless of all the European NATO members, now strangled by their dependence on Russian gas and oil, particularly the former, and has said they will not go along with sanctions targeting SWIFT.  You see, the Russians expect payment for their fossil fuels, and SWIFT is how those payments are made.  The same is true of the US, the most useless in NATO overall, which is still buying a lot of Russian oil daily.  When SWIFT sanctions were used on the implacable Iranians, they immediately returned to negotiations. What Western nations are doing now is a fan-dance of epic proportions. They’re virtue-signaling while doing absolutely nothing of consequence. Their “rules-based international order” is a hoax, and it’s in shambles.

One former Polish Former Minister, Radoslaw Sikorski, said plainly in an interview with Deutsche Welle that the Western nations have disgraced themselves by their unwillingness to take even these purely financial measures against the Putin regime. All of it was perfectly summed up in one of Sikorski’s retweets of Ukraine’s foreign minister:

Therein lies the unvarnished truth, and it goes for all the fake, pontificating morons in power on both sides of the Atlantic, who like to regard themselves as experts in foreign affairs and diplomacy: They like to posture as the guarantors of freedom and human rights, and as guardians of the memories of past atrocities, but when it came time for them to actually do what all their posturing promised would be their stance, they defaulted to what would cause them the least immediate economic pain.

I understand the tendency of politicians to do what is expedient with respect to those who elected them, such that imposing sanctions that wind up costing your own populace economic pain may not be popular, but Kuleba is correct: These are cowards of the worst sort. It’s easier to try to fake their alleged virtue by pretending to do something.

At the same time, if you look at the situation in the United States, the Biden administration has been entirely unwilling to place sanctions against Russian energy. The reason is simple: We consume an incredible amount of Russian oil each day.  Given that Biden’s administration is only too happy to effectively place sanctions on the American oil industry, it seems preposterous on its face.  If Biden’s administration were even mildly serious, they’d dump the stoppage of the Keystone Pipeline, they’d get rid of their various bans on fracking, they’d permit the restarting of exploration on public lands, and they’d generally get out of the way of American oil production, such that in short order, we’d need no Russian oil.  This would in turn cripple Putin, drop prices for American consumers, and American companies rather than the Oligarchs in Russia would profit. Hundreds of thousands of good-paying American jobs would spring into existence, and we would quickly eliminate our reliance on foreign oil, which would crush Russia.

When you consider the idiocy of the policy, and realize how these simple steps are fundamentally all that is required to cripple Putin, one wonders why they’ve not been(and will not be) undertaken.  The answer remains the same as ever:  This is how they’re paying Putin for getting rid of that pesky Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy. All of these left-wingers now controlling the Western governments, from Germany to Italy to France to Canada to the US, each and every one, has been involved in one way or another in profiting from the long-run corruption that had been the hallmark of Ukraine governments until Zelenskiy arrived.

If a few Ukrainians die, and Putin gets some spoils, it’s a small cost to pay in exchange for ridding themselves of dangerous reformer President Zelenskiy.  Some will suggest that the motive is something simpler and more political, for instance that the Biden administration is now captive to the hard-left de-growth movement in the United States, and while there’s an element of truth to that, we know they’re perfectly willing to throw their hard-left under the bus for the sake of electoral salvation, knowing their hard-left really has no place else to turn with their vote. It’s much the same game as RINOs like McConnell and Cornyn and Graham use on their own conservative voters: If they can stave off primary challengers, in the general election, it’s not as though a conservative voter in Texas is going to opt for the latest Democrat lunatic to run for the Senate.  They’re stuck, as ever, between the lesser of two evils, and this is how these monsters always manage to retain power.  It’s the strategy Abbott is trying to use to stave off a strong challenge by Allen West. He needs desperately to avoid a run-off, because if it becomes a two-man race, there’s a good chance Abbott will be beaten.  His approach is to win by foreclosing on conservative challengers in the primary next week. (I suspect it’s also the reason FoxNews pre-empted Mark Levin’s Sunday show this week, which was to feature West among the guests.  Paul Ryan, now on the board of FoxNews, absolutely detests Allen West.)

In any event, that’s the nature of the Washington game with captives bases.  They know their most hard-core voters will default back to them in every election.  This is why I do not believe this idea explains the failure of the Biden administration to do that which would clearly punish Putin most effectively, while earning him general good will with voters in an election year.  No, there is something much deeper here, and I think the nexus between Hunter, Burisma, Ukraine and Vlad the Invader, along with similar associations with Clinton, Schiff, Pelosi, Romney, Kerry, and several others does a much better job of explaining the situation. The only motivator greater than pure greed for money and power is the absolute necessity to avoid any legal liability, particularly of a criminally corrupt sort. Seeing Zelenskiy silenced is a convenient outcome, the people of Ukraine be damned.

NATO has become largely a virtue-signaling organization, from recruiting to their world-facing side. Here’s a video of their most recent fan-dance:

If this doesn’t convince you that they’re not serious about defending the West, I don’t know what will. This whole exercise in Ukraine is pointless, because they don’t mean to do anything effective.  More, most of them will be happier when Zelenskiy is gone. Welcome to the greatest show on Earth.

Update: Reminder, remember when Obama told Medvedev to communicate to Putin that he’d have more flexibility after the election?  Obama was re-elected, and then Putin took Crimea.  Think about it.  Now Biden is in office, and Putin attacks Ukraine.  Peter Schweizer told us that Biden is compromised. Do you still wonder about our Western fan-dance?

The Biden Bots Go to War (or not)

Friday, February 25th, 2022

Biden’s Bot Army Goes to War

An explosion in Tweets today cropped-up, all utilizing the same text. It’s obviously another BOT disinformation campaign, and it’s in support of Biden. If you log into Twitter, and search Twitter for the text “We stand with Biden. If WE have to get drafted for war WE will do it.” (You can click the link to see the search results.) You can see the tweet from @LibsOfTikTok to get an idea.

 

This is how the left fights its information wars.  Be advised that you should take extreme care before believing anything in this environment of rampant dis/misinformation. The media is entirely unreliable, and the the establishment social media is completely corrupted.

 

Going to War With the President We’ve Got

Friday, February 25th, 2022

Shall we go to War with the President we’ve got?

Donald Rumsfeld once [in]famously remarked that “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” This remark was accurate, even though it was widely and wildly criticized by leftists who have no understanding of national defense. The sentiment is easy enough to understand: You do not always get the luxury of preparing endlessly for war. Sometimes, the need to go to war supersedes your ability to abstain from or delay it for more ideal conditions or state of readiness.  Sadly, this is sometimes true of presidents as well. If the United States were to be attacked suddenly by nuclear strikes originating in Russia, for instance, it really wouldn’t matter who the president at the time might be.  That president would be expected to respond with equal or greater ferocity, irrespective of party or politics.  The problem we now face as a country borders on the galactically absurd.  We have in the Oval office a foolish, apparently dementia-addled old man, who is apparently not in good control of his bowel, never mind his mouth or intellectual capacity. He ought to be removed under the 25th amendment, come what may, but the people who’ve been using him as their meat-mask have no intention of seeing that happen.  We are in mortal danger, but under this President, Joe Biden, we cannot risk any unnecessary wars.  It is the height of unconscionable madness to permit it. I realize that sometimes, a country must go to war with the president in charge at the time, but this is not that situation, and I condemn any who would suggest otherwise.  No, we must not now go to war with the president we’ve got.

Ukraine is under attack by a hostile, monstrous actor.  Vladimir Putin is despicable, but he also has the advantage of owning the superior forces over the terrain in question.  It’s not a matter of caring, because any person can look in horror at the Hell Putin now imposes on the people of that stricken nation and understand the misery they now suffer.  It’s a matter of practical reality.  We are in no position to do anything unless our answer is a nuclear first strike against Russia, but that’s an intolerably bad option for all of the obvious reasons.  We have no significant bases nearby from which we could operate the number of air sorties needed to put up any sort of sustained defense of Ukrainian airspace, though it is possible we could park an aircraft carrier battle group in the Black Sea.  That’s an extraordinarily risky proposition when you intend to poke the Russian bear within easy reach of their air assets.  We are poorly positioned, and Putin knows it. He’s been watching and assessing NATO for decades.  He knows our NATO allies have barely maintained their responsibilities in the alliance.  He knows they’ve all been cheating.  He knows they are all incredibly weak, and weakened more by their oppressions of their own populations as part of their COVID responses.  He knows they’ve repressed their own dissidents, and he can legitimately throw the political dagger of “hypocrisy” at them with no trouble.

He also knows that America is now weak, with obviously weak and ineffectual leadership that is more concerned with punishing their own countrymen than in prosecuting a war in a country most of the corrupt US leaders would sooner see destroyed, in part to hide their corruption over decades. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and Mitt Romney along with their adult children and many others in the DC cocktail-party circuit would be only too happy if Ukraine’s current leadership came to an obscure and quiet end.  Between 1999-2014, the Clinton foundation carted over $10 million dollars from the oligarchs there.  They’ve used it as their personal piggy-bank for more than two decades, laundering money in and out of that small and easily corrupted country.  Their current president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is apparently an actual reformer, and none of them can tolerate that, particularly Putin, who has used it as the base from which to compromise Western politicians, particularly Americans, none of whose names are Trump.

The only question in Washington DC is how to play it for maximum waggage. (As in wag-the-dog.) None of the people now in charge in DC have any intention of rescuing Zelenskiy.  The truth is that they want him gone for all the same reasons Putin does. He can’t have Zelenskiy or his reformer government burning his purchased assets in Washington. It’s better to make it all just go away, and to bury any evidence or witnesses with it.  Others had suggested that the Russian “Invasion of Ukraine” narrative had been an entirely invented story line to give Biden a moment to talk and act tough to distract from the massive failures of his administration, but as facts on the ground now demonstrate, the threat was always very real.  Maintaining an Army in the field is expensive, and the larger the force, the more expensive and difficult it becomes. When it was clear that Putin had more than one-hundred-thousand troops deployed along the borders of Ukraine, it became clear to me that this was more than idle bluffing.

It could be observed that the pronouncements from both the White House and the State Department seemed almost to goad Putin into attacking.  On the one hand, they made threats that all parties knew were idle, while on the other, they openly admitted their inability and unwillingness to do much to stop it. “You’d better not, or we’ll kick your ass, even though we’re in no position to do so, and really don’t have the resolve to do so,” they effectively blustered and admitted at once.

There’s one other issue I’d like to tackle, and it’s with those who seem to be insisting “we MUST do something.” This element doesn’t seem to like that the vast bulk of the American people seem understandably to have no interest in doing much about the situation in Ukraine.  Polls seem to suggest that something like thirty percent of Democrats and twenty percent of Republicans believe the US should have any significant role in Ukraine.  To this element in our country, I suggest they take a look around and smell the crap they’re shoveling.  One, a radio host I have always liked, pointed out for the second consecutive day that after all, ours is a volunteer military, as if that means something to the argument for going to war, and he’s right, it does: A volunteer military requires the people to follow orders just like a conscripted military, with the difference that what makes that volunteer force viable is their understanding that their chain of command will not make frivolous or futile use of them. It’s one of only a couple of times in my history of listening to Mark Levin that I very nearly turned him off. I know there are dolts who have come to believe, inexplicably, that the killer Putin is some sort of good guy in disguise, but I’m not one of those, and Mr. Levin ought to be more careful before he begins to conflate America First patriots with these.

I don’t know what’s in Mr. Levin’s head when he says a thing like that.  I was a volunteer too, when I was fortunate enough to have a great commander-in-chief in President Ronald Reagan.  Neither was he without flaws.  Eight days before I reported for Basic Training, 241 servicemembers – Marines(220), Sailors(18) and Soldiers(3) – were slaughtered in Beirut.  When I went through boot camp, the mostly Vietnam combat veteran drill instructors all believed we were inevitably going to war.  We believed it too.  They drilled us like it, and they trained us with a vigor and intensity prior classes that year probably hadn’t experienced.  They were tough as nails, maybe more than usual, because they believed we trainees would be called upon to go to Lebanon.  That call never came, but I believe to this day that every one of us who graduated that training cycle were beneficiaries, because they more scrupulously got rid of the duds, pushed us to the physical, emotional, and intellectual limits, making us better soldiers.  The point is that President Ronald Reagan did not send in more Marines, Sailors, or Soldiers.  In point of fact, he pulled them out.  When that was the result, I remember that the sentiment in the military community was not all that happy about it.  Nobody wants to see their fellow servicemembers slaughtered, particularly to no purpose, and definitely without punitive response.  At the time, it didn’t sit well, even though it was potentially our necks on the line had Reagan sent more troops instead of withdrawing them.

In the longer run, however, I came to take a more mature view of what Reagan did, or more properly, didn’t do.  He evaluated the terrain, he looked at who we faced, and what the probability would be that more troops would merely make for more concentrated targets, far from home, to be attacked by small groups or individual suicide bombers where the mission was already murky and hadn’t borne the expected fruit. He looked at our allies in the region, and how he might augment and support the mission, and finally decided there wasn’t an attainable military objective that could be reasonably achieved without unreasonable losses.  In short, President Reagan made an entirely rational choice.  He likely wanted retribution against them as much as any of us. He wrote the hundreds of letters to wives and mothers and fathers and children.  He knew the unambiguous costs. Strangely, I would later intersect with Reagan’s foreign policy again, in April 1986, when a Berlin discotheque was bombed, killing US Servicemembers.  It was a strange turn of events that led my unit to serve briefly as replacements in Berlin in September of that year. Reagan did exact a punishment on the bad guys in this case, being Ghaddafi and his ring of terrorist henchmen, within ten days sending a bombing raid to Tripoli that nearly got the “Colonel.”

My point in all of this is that it’s very easy to look at the situation in Ukraine and desire to be able to put a stop to it. The sickening truth is that when we pretended, starting with President George HW Bush, that there was some “peace dividend” to be obtained from the end of the Cold War, it was foolishness, and an instance of utter stupidity that only anti-military pukes like the Clintons could love.  They exploited it, too.  Rather than realizing that the “peace dividend” from the ending of the Cold War was peace itself, we pretended that we could reduce our defense spending.  Adjusting for inflation, to spend at our Cold War defense-spending peak in 1986, a year in which we spent an astounding $295 billion, in today’s dollars, we should be spending roughly $1.2 trillion.  Instead, in 2019, we were spending roughly $740 billion.  At the turn of the century, after two terms of Clinton, we had fallen to $320 billion when we ought to have been closer to $500 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars, and the percentage of GDP expended on our military had fallen from 6.63% in 1986 to 3.11% in 2000.  Even now, we’re only slightly better, at 3.41% of GDP, as of 2019, so that we’re at slightly more than half as much military spending as a percentage of our GDP than we had been in 1986, a time when many, myself included, believe the US Army was at or near its peak in training and morale. (See stats here.)

Europe is far worse. Trump was not only right about European nations’ contributions to NATO, but their underlying defense expenditures are cratering. Since Trump left, they’ve fallen off a cliff, with reports that the German Army couldn’t deploy sufficient forces to repel successfully much of anything.  In short, Europe has left themselves virtually defenseless, with the brief exception of the period of Trump’s presidency, with only new NATO member Poland substantially upholding the promise of expending at least two percent of their national GDP on defense.  The United States has been bearing the burdens of defending Europe for most of a century now, yet we cannot get them to pay to defend themselves, and there is no will under the current administration in Washington DC to hold NATO’s feet to the fire. In 2020, Germany barely attained 1.57% of its GDP in defense spending, and that was after extensive prodding from President Trump. When he took office, the Germans were spending roughly 1.1% on defense.  In short, don’t look to Berlin for help.

This is the realistic assessment of the terrain in Europe: NATO has fallen into severe disrepair, from the end of the Cold War, until Trump came along to prod them beginning in 2017, but has since fallen back into the same rut, with the blame naturally being placed on CoVid19. At this point, the United States should be telling NATO: “That’s it. We’re cutting you off. We’re bringing home our troops unless you get to your spending goals AND make up for all the years of shortfalls within the decade.”

Of course, we’re no more likely to get that from this administration that we are to have a competent president, never mind commander-in-chief. More, this administration is incapable of waging an effective war of any kind, anywhere, at any time. They’ve diverted our military into concerns with all things “woke,” and if you think this is Ronald Reagan’s military of 1986, technology notwithstanding, you need your head examined.  Quickly.  Yes, of course we still have some good war-fighters in our military, but they’re now a pathetic minority within the ranks, and in the officer corps, they’re getting pretty thin as the service academies have been infiltrated by more and more social justice schlock, as modern “education” theories take precedence over what had traditionally worked.  I would like you to watch the first six and one-fourth minutes of this episode of Bannon’s War Room. In those first few minutes, he presents what he calls his “cold open,” and in it are various clips, including three recruiting ads, one for NATO, one for the Russian Army, and one for the US Army.  If you don’t see the problem, again, you need your head examined:


Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been reporting to you the state of our nation, and more generally, or our globe in one way or another for more than a decade at this web address. While my posts have been more infrequent in recent years, it’s not for a lack of concern.  People are foolishly insisting now that “we must do something,” but look at the state of our country.  I ask them: What would you have us do?  We have feckless leaders, corrupt and intransigent to the suffering and travails of the American people.  We have a military that, but for a brief reprieve under Trump, has been diminished and demolished, it’s morale wrecked along with its ethos.  We have a corrupted Justice Department that behaves as the hitmen for the government mafia.  We have an FBI that actively plots to entrap citizens, in shenanigans of that agency’s complete contrivance and invention.  We have a Department of State that openly plots against elected presidents it does not like, and we have an intelligence community that actively seeks to surveil and undermine a president it did not and would not obey.  We have an opposition party that barely musters any sort of fight against any of this, in large measure because they’re not really opposed.  We have public health officials who collude with big pharma to poison the American people and hide the data. We have whole segments of the population committed to destroying the country from within, including local officials, many bought-off by globalist pigs like Soros and Schwab.  You actually expect, in this condition, and in this state of being, that the remarkably few American people who realize what is going on, to volunteer their children into a war on behalf of this? Of this???

Do not tell me that we must go to war with the President we’ve got. I’m heartbroken at what I’ve seen thus far from Ukraine, like any other compassionate, thoughtful human must be.  I know that Putin’s mission is to exterminate Zelenskiy and his entire cabinet. His intention is to expunge them from the face of the globe.  Worse, the scumbags running Washington DC have every reason to help him do so.  There’s too much evidence of their corruption over in that tiny country.  There’s too much evidence of how they were controlled from the Kremlin. They don’t want to save Zelenskiy or Ukraine.  They want to bury Zelenskiy and his cabinet, they’re willing to burn Ukraine to the ground to do it, and they’re helping Putin carry it out.  Meanwhile, the American economy is spiraling into a stagflationary period that will make the Carter years look like a boom.  (It was once a joke that Jimmy Carter was thankful to Obama, and then Biden(but I repeat myself) for knocking him from the top of the “worst president’s ever” list, but nobody’s really laughing any longer. We’re in freefall, and every sensible person knows it.)

In the midst of all of this, those of you who wish to “do something” need to get a grip on your emotions, and understand what we’re really up against now.  We’re fighting for the survival of this country, right here, right now.  That great wealth or influence might offer insulation to some is no excuse for the indifference in the sentiment contained in the idea that Americans are somehow defective if they don’t wish to rush off to war against Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.  We know it’s another nasty set-up, just like all the ones deployed against us here at home.  We know the score.  We know, because every damned “conspiracy theory” (or most of them) of the last two decades have been proven mostly true.  We know Zelenskiy is the good guy.  We know.  Meanwhile, we listen to buffoons like Lindsey Graham, whose military experience consisted of walking papers around a Judge Advocate General’s office, pontificate about the privations we will suffer due to this crisis.  It’s not enough as it is, you see; Goober would have us suffer more.

Now I have to endure a berating monologue from a radio host I have long supported because I’m in no hurry to see my younger, ill-prepared brethren in uniform sent off to do something somewhere? For what purpose? To what end? For the sake of the need to “do something?” No sir.  I will not support going to war with this class of criminals who run our country. I will not support the spilling of so much as one drop of their blood on behalf of these cretins.  They’ve spent decades demolishing the country, and it’s not just the Democrats, though they’re today the mob bosses in charge.  When we had a president who was not part of their mob, they tried, like the gangsters they are, to take him out in any way that they could.  They used their vast criminal enterprise, posing as lawful suits at the bar of corrupt courts, undermining the integrity of our election, all because Trump had to go.

Years ago, I counseled young people to serve a term of enlistment in the military if their life plans were not firm after finishing high school. I told them it was the best thing they could do for themselves, while also serving their country.  It was true in my time, but it hasn’t been for most of a half-generation.  Even in Trump’s time, the military was already thoroughly undermined from the top, ever since Obama purged the Generals now more than a decade ago.

I truly do feel terribly for the Ukrainian people.  I know that like most ordinary people everywhere, they simply want to be left to live their lives, mostly in peace.  I know their current president is a reformer, and if it were possible, I would try to rescue he and his countrymen from the Russians.  The problem is that it is not currently possible.  More, the people running this country don’t actually want it saved.  I am as powerless to change that today, in the here and now, as any other American.  Shall we overthrow this government so that we can retroactively spend the defense dollars we should have spent, and undo all the stupidity and malfeasances of the last three decades? How will that help Zelenskiy?  More, we didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it conspired against the President we elected. We didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it obviously conspired with various state and local officials and NGOs to steal our presidential election and elections for lower offices.  It’s not merely Joe and Kamala who are illegitimate. Chuck Schumer is illegitimate in his leadership position, because neither Mark Kelly nor Rafael Warnock, among others, actually won their races.  Nancy Pelosi is illegitimate, because there were at least a half-dozen closely contested races that were likely impacted by the same cheating.  Do you really believe John James lost his Senate race in Michigan?  I don’t.

No, Mr. Levin, don’t tell me we should spill blood or treasure, no matter how strongly we might feel about it, for the sake of Ukraine or President Zelenskiy.  Until we spill all the blood and treasure needed to rescue our own fallen nation, don’t dare speak of it to me. You haven’t earned the right.  If you wish to characterize me as America First, as though it were a slur of some kind, so be it. I’ll stand by it. Don’t worry, I won’t burn any of the autographed books that fill half a shelf, in part not only because I hate book-burners and wanton, pointless destruction, but also because, with the way things are rapidly heading, I may need them soon for that purpose to cook my supper. Shall we go to war with the president we’ve got?  Respectfully, that depends on the contextual meaning of “with,” sir.  With him in Ukraine?

Hell no.

 

Editor’s Note: I’ve been a big fan of Mark Levin for a long time, and in the past, I’ve contributed to the Landmark Legal Foundation, of which he served as President for several years.  I don’t mean here to personally attack Mr. Levin, but I fail to understand his point of view on this particular issue. I always feel badly when I find myself at severe disagreement with the Great One, but on this point, I will not demur.  Our country cannot now defend itself, and its leaders prevent its agents and officers from defending even our Southern border.  They file suits at law against states, like my own, who attempt to enforce the laws of the United States, and even when ordered by courts to do so, effectively play a stalling game, and a game of “you can’t make me” with federal judges who dare to rule against them, up to and including the Supreme Court. So long as we have a lawless government, I support only wars of immediate existential circumstances for the United States. I swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and it does not expire, no matter who now has claimed the authority to ignore it.

West for Texas: Putting the Federal Government in its Box

Monday, February 21st, 2022

Allen West lays out his plan to make the Lone Star Shine

On Monday, President’s Day, I had the opportunity to attend former Congressman Allen West’s campaign stop in Belton, Texas, at Sendero Shooting Sports.  It was a decent crowd for a Monday holiday, and they were active and engaged with many important questions for the gubernatorial candidate, who was warmly received and repeatedly applauded by attendees.  Questions ranged across many issues, from education, school choice, and home-schooling, to the crisis at the border about which his incumbent rival, Governor Greg Abbott, has done scarcely little. West also served as the Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, and among the first questions, he was asked by a prospective voter whether the rumor had been true: “Is it true that while you were the chairman of the Texas Republican Party, Governor Abbott wouldn’t even meet with you?”  The response was refreshing candor from a candidate: “That is a fact.” This highlights one of the problems in Texas politics: The Austin crowd, including Abbott, simply don’t care what the people of Texas want until there’s an election looming. Then what you get is a fan-dance of symbolism. Allen West isn’t interested in useless, symbolic gestures of leadership.

One such act by Governor Abbott has been the much-ballyhooed deployment of 500 National Guardsmen to the Mexican border, but what has that deployment accomplished? Has it stemmed the tide? Has it done anything to secure Texas? Texans know that we have around one-thousand miles of border with Mexico. If you split five-hundred guardsmen into two twelve hour shifts, that’s a man every fourth mile, but by the time you actually consider logistics and so on, this token force of 500 Guardsmen is inadequate by any measure.  As West pointed out at this event, Guardsmen are having problems being paid, and they’re insufficiently armed or otherwise equipped to carry out a mission, never mind the woeful lack of manpower.  West wryly noted that as was recently reported, Texas National Guardsmen are now discussing unionizing because of the ridiculous conditions under which they’ve been deployed.

West also pointed to the unwillingness of State officials in Texas to do much, always pointing at the Federal Government, while claiming powerlessness and impotence.  West scoffs at the notion that the Governor of Texas, or the state in its entirety, is powerless to intervene.  One measure discussed was the ability to deny operations to the Non-Governmental Organizations now aiding and abetting Biden’s corrupt administration of our borders and our immigration system.  Huge grants have been made to these NGOs, always aimed at letting them do the dirty work of human-trafficking. West advocates putting an end to this in Texas.

Many issues were discussed, including education, and this was another issue in which Federal government strings are attached to so much of the money sent by Washington DC to the states. West said that it’s time to put the Federal government back in it’s proper box, within the four sides of the limits placed by the US Constitution. He also went out of his way to point out that he supports the notion that the money should follow the students, but that the state mustn’t intrude in home-schooling, that works for so many, and frequently produces many of our best and brightest.  His notion is to give these tools to all Texans, rich and poor, one and all, so that we can improve the future of Texas. He scorned the Federal strings that require a portion of Federal educations dollars be spent on “Social-Emotional Education,” a new code-phrase for CRT and other nonsensical educational ideas.

It was a very engaged crowd, and West took many questions. It was an excellent event wherein voters could learn more about the candidate and his views, in order to assess his fitness for the office.  The candidate didn’t get the questions in advance, making for a lively round of frank talk on the issues.  What’s more, it’s clear that West has a good command of the issues facing Texas, and  it’s obvious that he’s developed a sensible plan to actually do something, rather than make empty promises and carry out official fan-dances in the manner of Governor Abbott.  It was absolutely refreshing, and if West is coming to your area, I’d definitely suggest you attend. We have had nearly three decades of talk from politicians in Austin.  It’s time we elect a person with actual military experience and an eye for the kind of tactics that work. He has legislative experience, having been a Congressman, and he also understands the importance of service, given his career in the US Army and his many deployments on our behalf.  I happily and unreservedly commend to you Allen West, a candidate for Governor of the Lone Star State, who is out to make that star shine!

You can learn more about his campaign here, including where future events will be happening near you!

Fauci Exposed, DARPA Doc Blows Lid Off(Updates With DARPA Docs)

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

Smoking Gun: They KNEW

On Monday evening, Project Veritas provided another disclosure that should finally destroy Anthony Fauci. More, and I think this is the key revelation, we now know that DARPA was aware that Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are both curatives and preventatives for COVID, along with Inteferon. This comes from the document disclosed by Project Veritas. See a brief video on the disclosure here:


It’s time for Fauci and the rest of the people involved in this monstrous scandal to face a tribunal for Crimes Against Humanity. As disclosed by this document in the Project Veritas video below, they tried to do the Gain of Function experiments and research through DARPA, but DARPA turned it down because it would violate the moratorium against such research. Fauci then took it up and funded it, ignoring the moratorium, pretending the Gain of Function research he was funding wasn’t Gain of Function research. It’s bizarre, and Fauci’s veritable “It depends on what the meaning of IS is” defense is merely another attempt to conceal his culpability.  This man and those working with him are like modern-day fellow-travelers of Josef Mengele. The rumors are rampant that the CDC/NIH profits from the vaccines, and with this in hand, knowing the number of people who died while being refused/denied drugs our government already knew had curative properties, it’s time for all of these people to face justice. All of them.

Lieutenant Colonel Scheller Relieved – Where Are the Republicans?

Saturday, August 28th, 2021

A brave few summon the courage to speak

I’m sick to death of these spineless, supine Republicans. Yesterday, I brought you video of Marine LTC Scheller, who had serious questions for the chain of command relating to this catastrophe in Afghanistan.  By mid-afternoon on Friday, I updated the post, because he’d been relieved for cause. This is despicable.  Almost the entirety of the chain of command should be relieved.  Every general officer involved in this mess should be gone. Every one.  The fact that none of them have the courage to lay down their stars to stand up for the men and women in their charge speaks to the disgrace that is our Pentagon today.  If you missed Colonel Scheller’s video, you can watch it near the bottom of the post linked here.  Every question he asks is a valid, important question. Every implied criticism is correct.  While from Joe Biden down to the theater commander, every person in that chain is responsible for this disastrous retreat from Afghanistan, none of them have been or will be held accountable, but Colonel Scheller is being given the boot.  What are our Republican representatives and senators doing?  Apart from a couple voices that are summarily silenced by media and the tech giants, absolutely nothing.  Not one damned thing!

If our more junior officers can summon the courage to lay it on the line, surrendering their positions after long and honorable service, then our elected officials ought to be able to summon the courage to say something about it.  Instead, they remain silent. So far today, I’ve only read of Marjorie Taylor Greene saying anything substantial about this, but she’s hampered by the media’s hatred of her.  Most media isn’t covering it at all, but a few like John Solomon have the guts to mention it.  Bannon’s War Room is all over it this morning, as they continue coverage of this “withdrawal under fire.”  Here’s a tweet from Representative Greene:

 


She’s right, of course, but I want to know why the rest of the Republican caucus isn’t making a stink, while they like to play war-hawk, and to tell us how they support the troops.  Here’s a Colonel who basically laid down his eighteen year career to ask respectful but important questions of the chain of command, and he’s being drummed-out of the Marines. If it were up to me, he’d be promoted to commandant of the Marine Corps and all the useless sacks above the rank of Colonel who have anything to do with this mess would be given their walking papers with no retirement, and no honors. Meanwhile, the useless majority of the Republican caucuses in both houses of Congress sit on their thumbs, or hide in their offices, unwilling to say or do anything in support of Colonel Scheller or the American people.

It’s time to read these feckless Republicans the riot act, but also the maniacal Democrats who shamelessly support this disaster. It’s like I said two days ago about failing our war-fighters.  We have an honor-bound duty to speak on their behalf. When people like Colonel Scheller become moved to speak out, risking and surrendering their careers, it’s a sign that we, the people, have failed.

As this went to press, Representative Matt Gaetz also spoke out about Colonel Scheller via twitter:

 


 

We’ve Failed Our War-Fighters

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

12 Marines, 1 Sailor killed, many wounded, many civilians killed

The situation on the ground in Afghanistan today is beyond reprehensible.  The genesis of this situation is remarkable inasmuch as it’s now clear that it was a planned operation carried into operation by an administration that should never have been in power.  Our fake Commander-in-Chief is a feckless, worthless drone.  He doesn’t know anything.  I’m convinced that he’s not even entirely aware of his own personal surroundings, or much of anything else.  He’s a sock-puppet for people with malevolent motives, and the only thing that still connects with him is his baseline connections to all of his corruption in the past.  Joe Biden isn’t a president any more than Hirohito was the Emperor of Japan.  He too was a puppet for malevolent actors.  The humiliation he was forced to endure was fitting, given his role as a puppet, but Joe Biden’s humiliation is really ours to endure.  Joe’s too far around the bend to be humiliated by much of anything now.  This morning, unknown persons carried out an attack on US forces at/near the gate to the Kabul Airport, killing at least a dozen US Marines, one US sailor, injured dozens more, and killing and maiming scores of civilians.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is on us.  Joe Biden shouldn’t be anywhere near the White House. If he was legitimately elected, we truly failed, and even if it was simply stolen, as I and millions of others are now convinced, we are not off the hook.  We should have fought harder for audits sooner, and we should have insisted by all means that there be a full accounting of our elections.  No, there’s no moral escape clause for us simply because the criminals stole the election.  We had a duty to fight, and fight like Hell, but today, our war-fighters paid the price for all of our surrenders. We failed them, and their blood is on our hands.

Over the last three decades, the quality of the leadership at the highest levels of the uniformed services has been in steep decline.  Worried about social experimentation, and joining the DC/Pentagon-based cocktail circuit has been the focus of the generals and the admiralty.  Spending our treasure at fantastic rates, while spending the blood of our young men and women placed into their charge, these leaders have failed us repeatedly.  We’ve let the service academies that produce the majority of our senior officers become cesspools of social engineering and leftist political indoctrination, and we wonder why they churn out politically correct losers to lead our best, brightest, and bravest.  Our military has been in decline since the end of the Cold War, in part for lack of a clearly-defined mission through most of this era, but mainly because we, who knew better, or ought to have known better, let our politicians turn it into another battleground of political dispute. We’ve let presidents from alternating parties do horrendous damage to it, just as they’ve done to other institutions of government, and we’ve done damnably little about it. Meanwhile, our war-fighters, the hardened men who go to the world’s ugliest locales, have been permitted to suffer under this ping-pong match between those bent on political supremacy, and those too timid to fight for it.

When this so-called “president” was inaugurated in January, he (and those handling him) already had a raft of executive actions ready to go, already vetted by the Department of Justice beforehand, to begin in earnest undoing President Trump’s term expeditiously.  Now he claims to have been hamstrung by Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban, but that a farcical misdirection.  Trump’s canceling of the Iran Deal didn’t stop Biden from immediately re-launching it. Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban didn’t stop Biden from initiating violations of that agreement, or failing to enforce blow-back when the Taliban violated them.  No, Joe Biden’s a liar, and those propping-up this counterfeit president do all they can to buttress his lies, or even author them in many cases.

This brings us back around to the central issue.  Neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris should ever have seen the inside of the Oval Office, except on the basis of an invitation from a legitimate president, and it was our job to prevent it. When the Democrats began, as early as 2019, setting the stage for the plandemic they created and promulgated, together with their Chi-Comm pals, they did so by attacking the laws of our various states.  In places like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, they took advantage of mid-terms wins in the executive offices and judiciaries of those states to set the table.  In places like Arizona and Georgia, we let serious RINOs take over the executive branches, with complete frauds like Katie Hobbs and Brad Raffensberger as the secretaries of state, respectively, both being roughly as Republican as Mitt Romney’s dog. Those two, and others like them, set about to help rig the election while we left it all in Trump’s hands.  We didn’t see what was coming, but 2018 should have been the clue.  When 2020 began with a pandemic, I knew that the old rule was in play: If it happens in an election year, it’s about the election.  Don’t think for one moment that the whole Coronavirus plot wasn’t hatched or at least seized-upon by Democrats, and pushed to the bitter end by them.  These variants we’re now seeing, you should simply call the “Midterms Variants” for ease of understanding. We blissfully slumbered, most of us, as they set everything up for the big steal.  Then they executed it.

Now, seven months into the Biden “presidency,” we see a complete catastrophe, and while his name is on the title, we helped to author it, by failing to stand up in 2018, 2019, and in 2020.  Yes, readers here are some of those who have fought hardest, but the truth is that none of us have fought hard enough.  We’ve let too many among our friends and family fall prey to the media’s false narratives, and we’ve not pushed hard enough for audits and all the rest. This has allowed Joe Biden to do the bidding of those driving him, in a fit of punishment against us, destroying our country one piece at a time, as quickly as possible, from one end to the other.  They’re doing their level best to make sure we can never retake control of any of it.  That’s why they’ve not gone fully after guns just yet.  They’re still securing their coup.  Once it’s secured, our guns will be taken from us. Bank on it.

What happened in Kabul Afghanistan today was the inevitable result of a plan designed to wreck our country.  As they’re coercing our servicemembers to take vaccines that present real dangers, particularly to young males, but all young people generally, our counterfeit president ordered a hasty withdrawal from Kabul that could only result in tragedy.  There was no other way this could go, given the conditions Biden, his henchmen, and handlers set in place.  No rational person who wanted to withdraw from a war zone would do it as it was done. None. Nobody. It wouldn’t be possible to do this accidentally.  The Taliban were supposed to provide perimeter security!  They left computers with all of our citizens names, whereabouts, and so on at the embassy on computers, but just in case the Taliban couldn’t figure out how to access that information, we provided the lists to them directly. That’s right, for all intents and purposes, the Biden administration provided the Taliban a kill list.  We had intelligence about the terror threat being aimed at the airport too, so that when today, the suicide bombers went about plying their trade, going off to meet their maker in Hell, our US Marines were there, doing what they have always done: Protecting America’s interests, defending the places they’re told to defend, and helping the people their training and temperament has told them to help.  The bomb that killed our Marines, and a Sailor who was a medic, ripped through more than their bodies.  Our nation was torn still further, the rending of our country growing more lethal by the moment.

We had a responsibility as citizens who love their country and their countrymen to have stopped this.  It should never have happened.  These villains should never have been permitted to command our troops.  Never.  We cannot now undo this, but we must prevent any more if and while we can.  This must be stopped.  We must demand this be stopped.  We must demand our elections be audited now.  We must demand Joe Biden be impeached and removed now, and the Cackle-Queen too.  When Nancy Pelosi is sworn in, we must push for her impeachment and removal too.  We mustn’t stop.  When we fail, our Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and other war-fighters pay in blood.  When we fail to take our citizenship and our politics seriously, they pay with their lives.  When we fail to see that part of the bargain they strike with us is that while they defend the homeland, we should be defending them from corrupt and malevolent political agendas, we permit those political actors to use them as pawns and subject them to horrors they ought not have known.  There isn’t much time before this tragedy spreads throughout our forces, even if in other places, and by other means.  We must protect them, and that protection begins and ends with removing the insidious forces now directing our government as we look on mostly in silence.  The time for silence is over.  The time for loud voices is now, and if they will not hear us, we must become like Jesus confronting the money-changers in the Temple.  The cost of silence has become far too great already.  It’s only going to get worse.

 

 

Killing Your Children

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

The Heart of the Matter

Yesterday, I brought to you the story about the damage being done to the IQs of babies. Now, I bring you information you must have about the cardiac health of your children and young adults due to the spike proteins. Watch the video below. It’s shocking, and we must stop the vaxxing of anybody under thirty now, most especially children. The fact that your children’s hearts are under attack must get your attention now.  There’s no excuse for more pissing around with this. Again, watch this video from Stew Peters via Rumble and draw your conclusions, but in my mind, this is #FullStop

I’m convinced that it’s time for Tribunals for Crimes Against Humanity.

 

Redistribution of Rights

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

Whose Rights Are They Anyway?

It’s inevitable in a collapsing civilization that you will observe every sort of ethical and moral inversion conceivable, but there’s also a chance you’ll see something novel. In 2021 America, I think I’ve spotted something happening that ought to cause all Americans a moment of pause. When hate speech legislation began to erupt around the country in the 1990s, many of us thought it a despicable idea, in part because the sort of acts that generally accompany hate speech evince all the hate one need infer from those acts, and because speech does not cause actual harm. Essentially, critics of hate speech legislation adopted the old but true “sticks and stones” argument, and while correct, they also cautioned about the absurd directions a hate speech law could take us as a civilization.  Sadly, they were quite right, and now we’re seeing the development of the most sickening notions. Recently, it’s been proposed that government bureaucrats should be safe from hate speech. In simplest translation, and in most recent application, people wish to protect government officials from criticism, particularly criticism that attaches criminal consequences to the government official’s actions.  Suggesting, for instance, that Dr. Anthony Fauci should face a war crimes tribunal for his apparent involvement in funding the gain-of-function research in the Wuhan lab that now appears to have been the source of SARS-CoV2, a.k.a., COVID-19. This notion, that public officials must not be criticized, and especially mustn’t be accused of crimes, is anathema to free speech, but it’s a growing symptom of a broader threat. Slowly but surely, the bureaucracy is seeking to protect itself, and to empower itself, by depriving Americans of rights while redistributing those rights to itself.

Consider the subject of the Second Amendment. Here we see every level of government working to restrict the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. The long train of abuses in this area is not merely horrible, but increasingly, we see the government agents employing weaponry denied to American citizens. In some jurisdictions, certain types of ammunition are prohibited to citizens, while police agencies suffer no such limits. More broadly, it is not unusual for police departments to have at its disposal full-auto select-fire weapons. They may have other destructive devices like grenade launchers, and they’re not restricted to purchasing from the shrinking pool of such weapons legally available to citizens. The Armed Forces maintain many millions of small arms to which you have no entitlement. I was in the Army. I’m no less trained or qualified to handle such weapons responsibly than I had been as a young man in uniform, and indeed, I would argue that in most ways, I’m far more qualified and much more responsible in my conduct some thirty years later than I had been in my youth. I also have a good deal more to lose by being irresponsible. The Second Amendment doesn’t specify any type of weapon. It says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It doesn’t say “except for short-barreled shotguns,” or “excluding machineguns.” And yes, such things did exist at the time of its writing and adoption. I don’t wish to have here an argument about the second amendment, but notice the underlying problem: My rights to have a machinegun, for instance, have been stripped from me, while government institutions well beyond the military now legally possess and employ them. My right – your right – has been redistributed to the government or its favored agents.

Consider the matter of religion. What is a religion? A religion is defined variously, but a common description is “an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods. informal : an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group.” This begs the question: What is a god? They have an answer for this too: “a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.” In this context, I’ve often argued that for statists, “god” is government. In other contexts, you could argue that they contend “the public interest” (whatever they may claim it it to be at a given time) fits this definition. In our public schools, your children have been prohibited from praying. Teachers are most often prohibited from displaying artifacts or symbols of their faith, such as a cross or crucifix, and in the workplace, similar restrictions apply. Yet in all cases and at all times, public officials claim to tell us what is “in the public interest,” and they do so with a zeal no less ferocious than the most militant religious actors.  Somehow, we’ve permitted the worship of the state and state power in the guise of “the public” to be adopted as a national religion, while we’ve seen our individual right to free exercise of religion diminished and slowly eroded. Bureaucrats are permitted to worship at the altar of false science, and they’ve even taken to re-writing the historical evidence that counters their religious observances. Again, rights explicitly guaranteed to the people have been redistributed to the state, its instrumentalities and agents.

The Ninth Amendment provides: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”  This is pretty explicit in terms of its reach, and yet we see precisely the opposite taking effect. In virtually all controversies between citizens and the state, judges routinely blow past this amendment to rule with inverted effect. This amendment tells us that simply because a right isn’t specifically listed and defined in the Constitution, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, and it doesn’t mean the government has a right to violate it. Of course, one of the reasons the courts may have avoided giving this amendment any effect in law is that depending upon how the concept of “a right” is defined, one could imagine all sorts of rights that don’t fit that definition. Another problem is that Americans, broadly, don’t understand what is a right, nor do they understand that governments have no rights. Governments have only claims to or grants of authority. In effect, governments have powers, but not rights. What has happened is that we’ve permitted governments to steal our rights and smuggle them into the what should have been a narrow set of their powers. Now, governments and their favored grantees enjoy virtually unlimited exercise of rights that are properly held and exercised solely by the people.

We see this in other areas as well. You’re supposed to be secure in your persons, houses, papers, and effects, according to the fourth amendment, but as in other matters, governments have laundered the violation of these things through nominally private actors – corporations and non-governmental organizations – such that in our modern world, your electronic data is subject to snooping by Apple or Google or any other large corporate interest, to be handed-over to government on request or even without having been asked. Meanwhile, if you approach government, demanding access to public records, every form of dishonesty and malfeasance will be employed to obstruct disclosure of any information the actors within government(or its agents and cohorts) have decided you ought not know. Your putative right to open government has been demolished, and your right to private information has been exploded, all by this same process of the redistribution of your rights from the people to public offices and agents.

This applies to more than the “free exercise” clause of the First Amendment.  Consider that while you should properly enjoy a guarantee to freedom of speech, your ability to exercise that right is being demolished, or redistributed to government and government’s favor actors. See Dr. Shiva’s detailed explanation on how government now launders censorship through its private cohorts here to understand how your First Amendment has been gutted for the interests of the state. This isn’t limited to the explicit rights guaranteed in the constitution, nor is my outline here exhaustive in detail. It is possible to evaluate many laws, acts, and orders, as well as court rulings to have been a part of this general redistribution of our liberties to entities that do not rightly possess them. It confronts us daily. Why are car manufacturers shifting to electric vehicles? Is it because the market wants them, or is it because government and its co-conspirators are imposing them? Are they the most economical or “green,” or is this simply somebody’s peculiar desire and interest? In every facet of our lives, our rights to choose and act in accordance with our natural endowment has been abridged, either by governments claiming authority it does not have, or exercising power it has seized by guile, legal gymnastics, or outright force.

All of this is despicable, given that ours was to be a constitutional, representative republic. There may be no solution within the context of our existing government, but to take the approach of the framers in the face of the failures of the Articles of Confederation.  We may need to dissolve this government in its entirety, by adopting a new constitution that supersedes our current governing document.  Do we have the wisdom to actually do so?  Can we obtain sufficient broad public support for such a thing? I suspect it will only be possible when our rights are completely redistributed into the hands of increasingly tyrannical state authorities. At that point, it may take force of arms. We are coming to a departure from civil society, because Americans are and have been accustomed to a broad palette of rights and rather tighter limits on government power in all but a few narrow applications, despite peculiar disagreements among us.  This current circumstance cannot go on indefinitely, so it won’t.  What happens next will be our greatest challenge. We have already answered Franklin’s concern: We have not kept it.  Americans are correct in worrying now that we will not get it back.

The Most Important Thing I Learned From Lindell’s CyberSymposium

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Mike Lindell’s CyberSymposium

I watched much of Lindell’s CyberSymposium in South Dakota this week with great interest. (I’ve attached some of the most compelling videos at the end of the article.) There were some problems, and his symposium came under attack, and reportedly, Lindell himself was the object of some sort of attack. (I’ve attached some of the most compelling video at the end of the article.) In the end, I don’t know if anybody is going to attempt to claim the five million dollars he offered as a challenge. I don’t even know if that really matters. Instead, what emerged for me most of all was something deeply troubling. I’m not referring to the Cyber-attacks launched against his event. I’m not talking about the various ridiculous media hit-pieces launched even before the event had really begun. All of that is terrible. I saw an examination of images purported to have been snapshots of drives from Mesa County, Colorado Dominion EMS Servers. If real, this would be damning. It was incredible. The mathematical presentations of Dr. Douglas Frank, and Seth Keshel were sobering. All of this was incredible. With mock elections, his team showed how elections could be hacked and results changed. There was every kind of information, although I’m still not clear on what happened with the P-CAPs. As good or as bad as it may have been, depending on your perspective, what is undeniable is that while he was presenting, other parties, potentially including a Federal District Court judge, colluded or conspired(or just coincidentally by an act of seeming unnatural, implausible synchronicity) did everything they could to defame him and his event from minute one. They announced at the outset that two of the news outlets covering it (Newsmax and OAN) had been sued by Dominion Voting Systems, that morning, apparently for daring to cover the event. Yesterday, a Federal Judge ruled that a case against Lindell by Dominion could go forward.  Terrible. All terrible. As much as that may teach us about the people arrayed against Lindell, none of that bothers me nearly so much as the other thing I learned: They really wanted it silenced. FoxNews was crickets. Talk radio was dead silent. The podcasters of note said not a syllable. Not one. Despite taking who knows how many millions of his advertising dollars, on FoxNews, Lindell couldn’t beg a mention of his Symposium, or even buy it. On Levin’s and Bongino’s shows and platforms, I heard not a word. Not one. In fact, they all seemed to be studiously avoiding it. Lindell was abandoned by most of his media “friends” before the event ever began.

I don’t know the truth of it, but I know this: The conservatives in our country have become wholly unreliable, not in terms of the information they provide, but in terms of their willingness to walk out even a little way onto a limb. So terrified are they of having it sawn off behind them that they cannot summon the courage even to mention the event. It’s as if it didn’t exist. They don’t want to touch it, and I understand all the reasons. I really do. For one thing, they can see how Dominion Voting Systems is behaving: They’re using lawsuits as a kind of weapon, and with most of these people, it’s working. It’s working because rather than even come up to the line, tempting a lawsuit, these hosts/outlets pretend not to see the issues at all. For another thing, they don’t wish to risk their reputations on Lindell’s theory of the case.  If Lindell doesn’t prove out, they’d have egg on their faces.  I understand all of that, and a few things more, but here’s the problem: They didn’t even report the existence of the Symposium. Surely, that can’t be considered defamatory. Surely, it is possible to report on the Symposium without liability for what was said there, and certainly, reporting on it cannot do damage to one’s own reputation if one remains objective. Think of it. Even if, as an example, Bongino thought the Cyber-Attack theory was all wet, there’s nothing that prevents him from reporting on it, and so-saying, is there? Or is there? If Levin thinks the whole exercise  is moot at this point, he should say so, rather than remaining silent on Lindell’s efforts while running Lindell’s ads and pushing his American Marxism(of which I’ve purchased three copies.) And then there’s this: If they report on the event, even as skeptics, do they risk alienating the portions of their audiences who find Lindell’s case persuasive? So you see, it’s potentially a lose-lose. What this means is that for all their posturing as brave purveyors of the truth, they were most comfortable saying absolutely, positively nothing about Lindell’s event.

I knew FoxNews had become crap. I knew it years ago. I just hadn’t realized how far the rot had spread. It’s not that I believe Lindell fully “produced the receipts,” as some might say, but that the event happened, and that all the silencing tactics were in full force, and that all the stops were pulled out to shut him up, and this wasn’t done for nothing. If the validity of the disk images holds up, there is definitely something to be investigated in Colorado, but more than that, I think even Dr. Shiva’s presentation served to undress the Big Lie of government laundering its censorship through social media platforms like Twitter. There was much value in this Symposium, whether it produced the full results Lindell had wanted or not. Legislators or their representatives from all fifty states were there. They compared notes on how to proceed with audits and so on. Even if one doesn’t buy a word of Lindell’s theory of a Chinese-sponsored/operated Cyber-attack using Dominion Voting Systems, there are certainly substantial issues to be pursued, whether they involve the Chinese or Dominion or neither.

It’s worth watching. You can find it all on FrankSpeech.com. Where you won’t learn about it is on Bongino or Levin or FoxNews, at least as of the Symposium’s ending on Thursday. Only One America News, Real America’s Voice, and Newsmax gave it coverage. OANN was wall-to-wall, as was RSBN. Mike Lindell is a patriot, and he believes in his cause. Whatever else one might say about him or his symposium, he was all in. It’s just sad that so many other conservatives upon whom we rely daily aren’t equally committed. Meanwhile, some conservatives lecture us about imposing “real material losses” on the left, but apparently aren’t willing to risk any losses of their own.  Me? I’m headed over to mypillow.com to purchase another bath sheet. They’re excellent.

Here’s Dr. Frank’s excellent presentation:

Here’s Seth Keshel’s presentation. It’s more proof we must audit all 50 states:

I have no idea if any Lindell product has ever shown up here, or if they ever will. This site is too small a fish to be visible in that pond. I was, however, very serious about the MyPillow bath sheet: Best towel I’ve ever owned, and now, I’m going to buy another.

Dr. Robert Malone Unmasks the Vaccine(Updated)

Saturday, July 31st, 2021

Sometimes, the truth hurts.

The one place in media giving one-hundred percent unvarnished coverage of issues with the vaccines is Stephen K Bannon’s Warroom. They’re not “anti-vax,” but they pull no punches, and they don’t cover up the problems.  They seem to believe in informed consent, a notion foreign to big media, big tech, and big government. The inventor of mRNA vaccine technology is a man named Dr. Robert Malone, MD.  He’s examining the actual evidence of the performance of the vaccines so far, and he’s seeing some very troubling problems.  These problems are being brushed-aside by mass media, and it’s astonishing that they continue with the “conspiracy theory” attack, despite so-called “conspiracy theories” now proving out in case after case in the last year.  First, we were told that the idea that vaccinated people could spread COVID is a “conspiracy theory.” Then we were told that the idea that there were injuries or death associated with the vaccines were a “conspiracy theory.” What we’re learning at this late date is that people who label everything “conspiracy theory” are the singularly demonstrable, undeniable conspiracy theorists.  We’re being told lies.  Thankfully, Dr. Robert Malone is having none of it. Here we have another physician who is bravely standing up against the tide of liars and cowards.  You must listen to what he has to say.  Whether you’ve been vaccinated or not, you have a right to the truth about all of this. You have a right to know if you’ve been dosed with something potentially dangerous.  You have a right to know what they’re demanding you have injected into your body. You retain a right to refuse, in all cases, and you have a right to continue your life without coercion or compulsion.  Most of all, you need the information.  You may be afraid of the information, either because you’ve had the vaccine and fear what it could mean for you, or because you haven’t, and you’re frightened that you’ll need to defend your life against the mandaters. Either way, you need information.  You’re not getting honest information from the media or government. Big tech is hiding it from you. If you have children, or others for whom you make the custodial decisions about vaccines, you need the information more than anybody.  Sometimes, the truth hurts.  Often, a lack of truth can kill.  Please view these clips from the War Room:

Doctor, My Eyes

Wednesday, June 9th, 2021

I love most of the doctors who’ve ever rendered care to me and mine in my times of need, whether routine check-ups or things of a more serious nature. Unfortunately, every doctor cannot be the most competent doctor in the practice, the clinic, or in the hospital. Not every surgeon can be the most skilled, talented medical artist. Not every person in any segment of the medical fields can be the most able in their specialty. Human skills and talents simply aren’t distributed that way. Unfortunately, neither is the indispensable virtue of courage.  What this “pandemic” has taught me, perhaps more than anything, is that rather than being the people most trustworthy in my world, I now trust the medical profession only slightly more than politicians, reporters, and bureaucrats.  What the medical community has done over the last eighteen months is astonishingly scandalous.  Some people, like Dr. Anthony Fauci, at the upper echelons of the medical bureaucracy should go to jail for their misfeasance or malfeasance, but in the main, the biggest failure in the medical professions has been among the group we ought to have been able to trust above all others:  The doctors.  Physicians should have observed their Hippocratic oaths.  Doctors should have been the tempering speed-break that stilled the panic and gave reason in the midst of madness. A very few brave souls tried, but they were demolished for their efforts.  They were ostracized and silenced in social media, and in the media generally.  Those few gave a valiant effort, and they are to be commended.  If you’re looking for the assistance of a physician, seek one of them out, because only they dared tell the truth. This story isn’t about them, however, or the good works they performed.  It is about the failure of their brothers and sisters in medicine, who failed, who fell to their knees in supplication before the juggernaut, and bent science to the will of a political mob.  This is not a story about the brave few who stood against the storm, but instead, about the greater number of them who faded and faltered, betraying their patients in the greatest calamity every visited upon the field of public health in human history.  It has been a man-caused catastrophe.

For me, it began early on in the so-called pandemic.  I already had begun to fear that this was being exploited for political purposes.  I saw how the media was behaving, and I knew instinctively that there was something terribly wrong with the narrative we were being fed.  For one thing, the narrative kept changing.  For another, the recommendations seemed almost random at times, and they didn’t seem to comport with simple science and basic logic.   I, along with countless others, began to ask questions like: “Do we have an antibody test for this contagion?” Alternatively, “Do masks even work?”  “What good is social distancing?”  Then people began to research the PCR test, and it was discovered that the PCR test was likely to generate high false positive rates, maybe greater than ninety-five percent.  Even the Lancet admitted it was probably at least 50-75%.  Questions along this line were dismissed.  Hospitals began to shut down all “elective surgeries,” which isn’t merely face-lifts and so on as some people seem wrongly to believe. If you’re stable but waiting on some very serious surgeries, for very serious conditions, they can be rated as “elective” even though without them, eventually, the condition requiring the surgery may well kill you. Large numbers of hospital employees were furloughed. Whole wards were shut down. None of it made any damned sense. It was as if they were waiting for the wounded to come in from a terrible battle, but the terrible battle hadn’t happened.

Then people began to notice oddities in the reporting. People were being reported as COVID deaths, who died in hospice facilities. They were in the end stages of terrible cancers, and they were tested daily, sometimes many times daily for COVID, and even if the damned PCR test never did give a positive result, they’d get a doctor to “diagnose” it based on symptomology and call it a contributing factor in the inevitable deaths. One elderly gentleman who lived very near me pulled out in front of a tractor-trailer hauling a load of gravel on a 75mph highway. There wasn’t much left of his folded-up pickup truck, but they managed to swab his lifeless body and declare him dead of COVID. These stories happened all over. People who blew their brains out with shotguns were tested “positive” with PCR swabs and their deaths recorded as COVID deaths. People who fell off buildings were diagnosed as COVID deaths. In one recent “adjustment” to statistics, Alameda County California admitted it had at least 441 cases scored and counted as COVID deaths that most assuredly were not, reducing the county’s COVID death count by twenty-five percent!  This whole gruesome fraud went on, and in most places, is STILL happening. Where are our scientific professionals? Where are the doctors? Why weren’t they speaking-out?

Money is a powerful motivator, and it’s frequently seen at the root of many human failures of character. Often times, what we perceive as cowardice is only the sort of cowardice born of “fear of a loss of compensation.” For many people, that’s quite enough. Ladies and gentlemen, our medical doctors, for all their education, scientific training, and Hippocratic oaths, are just people, and they’re subject to the same foibles, flaws, and outright failings found in any other segment of our society. The problem is that most of us trust them, because they have the credentials, and they’re employed in hospitals and clinics, or they have their own practices, and we see them as the top of the food chain. Those in their own practices are certainly less subject to pressures of the corporate sorts, but not entirely. That in mind, remember that most of us see doctors employed in vast medical systems, corporate hospitals, and medicals systems.  The bigger the institution, the more prone they are to exhibiting these pressures on their employees, and even on their doctors. Even then-CDC Director Redfield admitted that there is a strong perverse incentive built into the system.

There isn’t a doctor among them who doesn’t know that a virus is many times smaller than the pores in those common masks, never mind the various cloth contraptions people sported throughout the course of the “pandemic.” Not one. In truth, if you want to know whether you can trust your doctor, next time you visit, ask him or her bluntly: “Does this mask I’m wearing provide any protection from airborne SARS-CoV2?” If they give you any other answer than “no,” you can know your doctor is lying. If they tell you something about “virus carried in exhaled particulates,” you might give them a pass if they specify a certain grade of mask, but you should press the issue: “Will this silly cloth mask I’m wearing protect me from inhaling a coronavirus floating around in the air in this room?” If they tell you “yes,” they’re lying to you. The reason for the lie is irrelevant. Whether it’s because they’ve bought the lies themselves, or because they’re following the company line, or because they’ve been squeezed into it by peers and social pressure, the particular motive matters not. All that matters is the net effect: They’ve told you an incredible lie.  I’m not telling you to have a confrontation with them.  Just accept their answer, and know that anything this doctor ever tells you, from that date forward, and probably any time in the past, must be considered as possible false information. You should definitely find another doctor who will not lie to you.  Since the scale of the failure of the medical profession has been so profound, you may have quite the chore before you. If you want to, you can always preface your question with an implicit warning: “Doctor, I need to ask you a question, and I suppose you could consider it a test of sorts, and your answer will remain between you and I alone:  Does this silly cloth mask I’m wearing afford me any real protection from airborne coronaviruses?” At least this way, the doctor will know from the outset that you expect perfect frankness within the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship. Whatever his or her answer, you’ll know what sort of doctor you have.

Here’s a quick youtube video to demonstrate the difference in scale among viruses, including COVID19, and the masks that allegedly impede them:

I realize there will be a large number of doctors who will spit and sputter in objection after reading what I’ve said here, but let me tell you something else: I don’t care. I’m entitled to my opinion, and by any estimation I’m able to make, any doctor who will participate in all the lies we’ve endured in the last eighteen months isn’t worth a puddle of pond-scum, never mind having the temerity to object to my calling them on it.  Yes, I fully understand the pressure they’re under, but I also expect them, of all people, to have the moral fortitude to reject and overcome the pressure.

Many of these same doctors are being pressured to get you to take one of the available vaccines. I will tell you how I answered one clinician recently:

“Will you and the hospital sign a release accepting all liability for any injury, death, disability, or disease I might suffer as a result of this vaccine you’re recommending?  No?  Then why do you recommend it?  You have your answer.”

You see, one of the principles in medicine is that you, the patient, have an absolute right to refuse treatment of any sort.  It’s also true that you have a right to expect that your doctor will prescribe treatments and medicines that will not cause you unnecessary harm, and no harm they didn’t warn you was a possibility first.  This is called “informed consent.” It’s not simply that you were permitted to choose whether or not to take the medicine/vaccine, but that you were given sufficient information to evaluate its relative safety or danger to your person.  The vaccines currently being used for COVID19 are all being used only under an Emergency Use Authorization, and are in fact only experimental vaccines.  Yes, you’re the proposed Guinea pigs.  I will not tell you what you should do about any vaccine.  You’re presumably adults and if you’re able to find your way to this website, I’m certain you’re able to research vaccines.  I will tell you that under no circumstances I can now foresee, will I be taking any of the vaccines currently offered as alleged preventatives against infections with SARS-CoV2, a.k.a COVID19, a.k.a. the FauciVirus. You do you.

I had always hoped that the medical profession was populated with people of amazing skills and talents and moral courage.  While there is undoubtedly no shortage of skill and talent, what I’ve learned over the last eighteen months is that the people in these fields are no less apt to fall prey to the same sorts of moral and ethical failings as anybody else.  The Hippocratic oath, if taken as seriously as intended, ought to imbue its professors with at least an elevated sense of the criticality of their honesty in dealing with patients, but as in so many other fields where a higher standard ought to be expected, the practitioners often fail to clear the bar.  What we have seen with some of the disclosures of the Fauci emails is that “science” is just a corruptible and corrupted as any endeavor into which greed and political power are introduced.  Peer-reviewed science has made a mortal blow to its own credibility, and just like with the Climate Change hogwash, what we find is that in pursuit of the research grant dollars, or for the approval of the mob, or for the sake of simply keeping one’s job, science is eminently corruptible.  What the last eighteen months ought to have made plain, to our disappointment and disgust, is that the medical profession is steered and swayed by these same forces, and always to the detriment of real medical science and honest patient care. Your lives and liberties were at stake, and in the main, to the largest extent, the medical profession failed you, and mostly because doctors would not stand on their feet, stick their chests out, harden their jaws, and take the punch, unyielding and unafraid.  This is another area in which we are going to need to force a clean-up, since at least to date, the profession at large has shown no such inclination.  It’s crushing.  It’s a little like discovering that the spouse you’ve loved and cherished for decades has been routinely stepping-out on you every week throughout the course of your whole marriage.  Some people I know trust their doctors more than their spouses.  It’s one more instance of betrayal in a year’s worth of them.  If you’re a physician, and you feel like this is aimed at you, maybe it is.

 

Editors Note: I realize that there are many people other than doctors in the medical sciences, but it is the doctor with the lab-coat and the stethoscope that has come to symbolize the profession, in large measure because they are the accepted, learned authorities in the field, and because it is upon their recommendations that we follow courses of care and medication. Nobody sets out to make an appointment to see a nurse, or an x-ray technician, or a phlebotomist. Those are generally people we interact with along the path to seeing, or after having seen a doctor. Pharmacists don’t write prescriptions. The whole of the medical field revolves around the physicians. It is in they who we place our trust and our lives. It is to they to whom we entrust our children’s care. It is they who should lead the way in cleaning this mess up, and it should start immediately.

I know there have been a number of good physicians who’ve stood against the tide. I know how they’ve suffered. Rather than endlessly listing all the doctors here who’ve failed you in the last eighteen months, I’d prefer that any such comments list only doctors who didn’t fail. I would prefer that if you’re going to name doctors in the comments here, you focus on those who stood and did the right thing, if you know any.

 

 

 

 

Why You Must Refuse and Resist Vaccine Passports

Thursday, April 15th, 2021

Dr. Naomi Wolf Explains the Danger…

On Wednesday, longtime Democrat strategist Dr. Naomi Wolf appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room to explain the imminent danger of so-called vaccine passports, and how the model is going to be extended to encompass your entire existence. This is the Chinese Communist Party control grid, extended globally, and powered by Western oligarchs. Watch the video below:

Editor’s Note:  I’ve been at war with Twitter over Coronavirus and vaccine-related information. They don’t permit any contrary information, no matter the sources you provide or the credibility of those sources. This entire thing is being used as an excuse for tyranny at all levels. Be on your guard.

Newsmax Joins the Suppression Crew

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021

People need to see this stunning video of Newsmax treating Mike Lindell like garbage. I ditched FoxNews for this sort of thing. What makes Newsmax think they’re immune? I’m very glad I’ve been sticking to One America News. I always worried Newsmax was part of the “professional conservativing” establishment in DC. (Q: “What do you do for a living?”  A: “I conservative.”)

I’m adding this from Rumble, because I’ve had reports that the Youtube version of the video has been unavailable:


 

If this is how they treat Lindell, then you can imagine what they think of the rest of us. Newsmax just lost me. I don’t need cowardly news.

DC Lockdown: Securing the Coup

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

The First Order of Business

In any successful coup d’etat, the first rule is to secure it. Once the coup-plotters have successfully wrested control of a government, their first exigency is always to stabilize the coup, making it irreversible, followed by a rapid consolidation of power. What you’re witnessing in Washington DC is precisely that. The radical globalists, in the USA represented by the Democrats and a throng of Republican collaborators, is now out to secure their victory.  They succeeded in stealing the 2020 election from Donald Trump, and they’re on the cusp of fully taking power. The show of force in Washington DC is all about making a show that will frighten away any who foolishly conceive of some effort to undo it.  They’ve already introduced legislation to make the new walls and barriers permanent, as they scramble to turn the DC capitol into the visible demonstration of their power. They need to appear invincible, but one of the things they’re likely observing is Sun Tzu’s dictum to “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” Their coup is fragile, and they know it. One bad meme, one unexpected push in the wrong direction, and the whole thing will come undone in the eyes of the public. This is all about enforcing an image and narrative of inevitability and invincibility, because their legitimacy is so thoroughly in question. The media, another organ of the coup-plotters, is only too anxious to help portray this image. They too are on the ragged edge, because all the world knows or ought to know that the media is entirely fake.  Everything you’re seeing in media is aimed at securing the coup and consolidating its power.

Joe Biden is likely barely aware of anything. That’s not his role. He’s a figurehead and a fake. The people running him, Obama et al, are busy concocting the most absurdly vicious administration in US history. Staffed with professional liars and BigTech executives, the whole administration is being engineered to carry out a giant fraud. This is because their entire bogus campaign, barely a campaign at all, was comprised of disinformation, propaganda, and a never-ending attack on Donald Trump.  Expect this to continue.  Donald Trump will still be the bogeyman, only now, it will be a blame game. Everything they do will be blamed on Trump and his administration, despite the fact that Trump’s accomplishments were remarkable. None of that will matter once these demons take over the reins of power. Instead, you’ll be told how horrible Trump had been. They’ll tell you he’d been ineffective or incompetent, or even malevolent when it suits their purposes. While some of that happens in most administrations, in this one, it will be taken to a new level previously unknown and unimaginable. That is because Donald Trump accomplished many good things for the American people, and the Obiden administration will be taking a wrecking ball to all of it.

They will focus on maintaining the air of invulnerability, as they hope time will make people simply accept their legitimacy. In a sense, they hope with each passing day, the reality of Obiden’s presidency will reinforce itself.  First, some will simply shrug and accept it and try to move on with life in whatever way they’re able, and over time, they will shut down and deplatform any one who says otherwise.  They will not, as you’ve seen, allow for any more questioning of the legitimacy of the election, while at least 8 in 10 Republicans and 4 in 10 independents believe the election was stolen, corrupt, Worse, some number of Democrats, mostly biting their tongues, also believe that the election was stolen. This means that at the margins at least, the theft was so obvious that even some of their own number can’t un-see the evidence. This is why even at this late date, it’s being reported in the press(consider source) that Barr told the President that election theft was Bullsh…” They’re trying to bury it, and they’re trying to legitimize Obiden.

Part of consolidating power is what will be made of Barr’s interview on ITV. This is because to truly consolidate their coup, they must take Trump out. In this case, what they intend to do is to make sure Trump can never hold office again, and they’re going to use an unconstitutional impeachment trial in the Senate. That’s the purpose of the Barr interview. I, along with many of my readers, had serious reservations about the “swampiness” of Bill Barr, and since the election, he’s substantiated that concern. You can also look to the pressure being placed on social media tyrants to become more tyrannical in their stifling of conservatives, and particularly any talk about the legitimacy of the 2020 election. They’re demolishing conservatives, and any pro-Trump voices for a purpose, and they’re being driven by the left toward further attacks. This consolidation will continue apace, as they intend to wipe out all dissent. There can be no voices in media anywhere. They’re going after podcasters, and even talk radio. At every turn, the object is to shut down any further questioning of the elections of 2020.

Obiden can’t have a successful return to the Obama policies if his legitimacy is in question. Now, all efforts are being placed into the drive to cancel any such questioners. The American people, though, know what they know, and these efforts may shut down the public discussion, but they won’t silence what reverberates in the minds of the American people. Get ready. Know what you’re seeing. This is exactly how any coup d’etat behaves, because it must. The legitimacy is always in question, and ending those questions is key to securing the coup. The populace must be made to accept the legitimacy, and that requires eliminating all questions and/or questioners.

Editor’s Note: Yes, I’m using the term “Obiden,” in part as recognition that this is an entirely fake presidency, but mainly that Obama is largely directing it from behind the scenes. Joe Biden is incapable of being President of the United States. His only role was to be an eligible non-corpse they could put atop the ticket as a placeholder.
