Justina Pelletier Family’s Lawsuit Against Boston Children’s Hospital Begins

Justina Pelletier is now 21 years old. She was the teenager who suffered from Mitochondrial Disease, but during an unfortunate time when her regular doctor was unavailable she was then taken to a different hospital, Boston Children’s, in which the “doctors” decided that her problems were not medical, but psychological. The hospital falsely accused the Pelletiers of “medical child abuse” and took custody away from the parents and gave it to the dreaded Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF).

The Pelletiers are now suing Boston Children’s Hospital and the trial finally begins this week. The “doctors” crimes against the then-teen were 7 years ago now. The family is seeking “unspecified monetary damages,” according to Boston 25. In my view, they should have insisted that the doctors and hospital staff involved be criminally charged with kidnapping, false accusation, child abuse, and endangerment, among probably other charges. They are indeed criminals.

Here is a video of the Pelletiers being interviewed on a local Connecticut TV station last Summer with an update at that time.

These cases of medical kidnapping are happening all the time in Amerika now. Many “child protection” practitioners want to have control over a child to use as human guinea pigs for experimentation. There have also been many cases now involving CPS (“Child Protective Services”), the foster care system and child sex trafficking. (See this article on pedophiles and foster care, this article that states 60% of child sex slaves comes from foster care, this article on pediatricians using CPS to kidnap innocent kids, this article on corrupt police aiding and abetting CPS in trafficking children, this article on CPS kidnapping children for money, and this article on CPS possibly trafficking children, alleging that CPS is a “for-profit business that depends on the removal of children in order to get paid.”)

I had quite a few posts on this Justina Pelletier case although there have been many cases just like hers. See MedicalKidnap.com. These cases also include those in which pediatricians report on parents who have not done anything wrong, such as this current case in Florida.

I will repost right here some of my posts on the Justina Pelletier case:

More Prisoners of Soviet Amerika’s Medical Establishment Cult

February 21, 2014

Speaking of the incompetent and corrupt Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, there is an alarming case involving both that agency and area medical facilities.

This is yet another case of child abduction, pure and simple, and worse. You see, child snatchers and torture are rampant amongst various state “child protective” (sic) agencies.

15-year-old Justina Pelletier was being treated by doctors at Tufts Medical Center for Mitochondrial Disease, with initial symptoms mainly involving her colon. She was transferred a year ago to Boston Children’s Hospital against her parents’ wishes. The situation went from bad to worse, as the doctors at Children’s Hospital accused Justina’s parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, of “child medical abuse,” of “over-medicalizing” the child. Hospital officials than called in the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) who seized custody of the child away from the Pelletiers.

According to Lou Pelletier, who spoke to Glenn Beck (videos below) recently, doctors had initially performed exploratory colon surgery for possible “blockage.” The surgeon found “20 inches of cartilage wrapped around her colon and appendix.”

It appears that both Justina and her sister have congenital Mitochondrial Disease, but the sister’s issues haven’t been as severe as Justina’s.

After being moved to Boston Children’s Hospital Justina’s condition worsened and she is now in a wheelchair. When she was brought into Boston Children’s Hospital, doctors there had her see psychologists, one of whom asked her why she allowed the previous doctors to insert the tube in her colon.

With the very severe problems she was having, Justina needed her digestive system “flushed” but the Children’s Hospital doctors refused to do that, insisting that her problems were “psychological.” “It’s all in your head,” basically is what they told her and her parents. It isn’t Mitochondrial Disease that she has, but “Somatoform Disorder.”

So what we have here in crazy Amerika is this. Medical establishment zombies either diagnose a normal child who acts like a child as “abnormal,” or “hyperactive” and all those terms, and then they drug up those kids which causes further problems including actual medical, physical side effects. OR, they take a kid like Justina that they KNEW had a REAL medical condition as diagnosed by earlier doctors — a condition that was actually seen to exist via exploratory surgery — and they tell her that her problems are psychological.

So, instead of allowing the “flushing” treatment to continue, these doctors forced Justina to instead sit on the toilet for hours, according to her father, Lou Pelletier. Mr. Pelletier stated that the term the doctors used for how they were treating her was “behavior modification.”

You see, there are some doctors who are objective, and they take all the information of a particular case into account and act accordingly in the best interests of the patient.

And then there are doctors who believe in an ideology. In this case, the ideology is “behavior modification.” When doctors — or other kinds of providers — have an ideology, they are not objective, they are instead fixated on their ideology. In this case, as I see it, the doctors receive a new patient, and, regardless of what her symptoms are, the doctors attempt to get the patient to fit into the particular structure their ideology calls for. But it doesn’t fit in with reality, or with what the patient is actually experiencing. Then, it becomes a cult, in my opinion.

In fact, that these doctors and hospital administrators seized custody away from the Pelletiers and gave that illicitly-obtained custody over to the state’s Department of Children and Families, is relevant to this “behavior modification” ideological mistreatment of Justina. This is because the hospital’s research agenda involves children who are a “ward of the state.” According to the Blaze, Boston Children’s Hospital’s own Clinical Investigation Policy and Procedure Manuel states that “Children who are Wards of the state may be included in research that presents minimal risk…or greater than minimal risk with a prospect of direct benefit.” The Blaze notes that there is no assurance as to whether or not Justina is being used in research.

More recently, however, Justina was transferred from Boston Children’s Hospital to the Wayside Youth and Family Support Network facility in Framingham, Massachusetts. Wayside is a place for teens with behavioral problems and many come from “broken homes.” According to this local news article, “There are no doors to the rooms for the kids who live there, just curtains. Doors would allow students to barricade themselves in their rooms, said Dennis Miles, the campus residential director.”

You see, collectivists who may in fact be using others in experimentation don’t believe in the concept of privacy, as well as common sense. Actually, collectivists in general don’t believe in privacy, hence ObamaCare, NSA, TSA, FBI, etc.

The article also notes that “Pushbars for some of the doors have a 15-second delay to prevent students from running through or out of the school.

“Many doors need a security card to open, while others leading outside trigger an alarm.”

Hmmm. Now it’s beginning to sound more like a “correctional institute.” Is there a fence outside with barbed wires facing in?

Is there a Nurse Ratched there?

Mr. Pelletier describes Justina’s treatment by all these doctors as “torture.” He describes his daughter as now in a wheelchair, paralyzed below the waist, almost no muscle control above the waist, with her hairline and gumline receding, and says she seems to be malnourished.

So much for the psychologists’ “behavior modification” ideology.

Here is a video of Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, talking to Glenn Beck and describing this ordeal being perpetrated against their family by the vultures of the DCF and the medical establishment quacks:

Another aspect of this case which is just as troubling is that the DCF judge imposed a gag order on this case. The Pelletiers are not allowed to talk to the media about what’s being done to their child. However, since later last year, Mr. Pelletier has been talking to media, including Glenn Beck.

Now, what authority does any judge have to order the Pelletiers not to speak out about their ordeal? Some sort of Fascist Manifesto, perhaps?

Worse, because of his talking about what the vicious state and the psychopathic medical establishment have been inflicting on them, Mr. Pelletier has now been charged with “contempt of court.”

Here is the video of Pelletier telling Glenn Beck about the contempt charge:

In my view, these medical establishment people are not just medically incompetent, but criminally dangerous. If there were any justice at all, criminal charges of child endangerment, kidnapping and hostage taking, and physical abuse need to be pressed against those who were actually responsible for refusing to allow the Pelletiers to take Justina out of the hospital last year, and such charges pressed against those who then seized custody away from the Pelletiers. (The judge also needs to be impeached and charged with violating the Pelletiers’ First Amendment-protected rights of free speech.)

If ObamaCare continues as the “law of the land,” we can just multiply by many times all these fiascoes and crimes perpetrated by the State-medical establishment cult.

Our Modern Salem Witch Doctors

April 1, 2014

There is a terrific article on the Justina Pelletier case at the website of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights by Kelly Patricia O’Meara, titled Modern Day Salem—Boston Psychiatric Unit’s Imprisonment of Teenager Justina Pelletier Needs State Investigation into Reckless Endangerment of Psychiatric Diagnosing.

O’Meara compares to the the Salem witch trials the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists who recklessly ignored Justina’s medical diagnosis and treatment in favor of a subjective, non-scientifically verifiable psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.

The article highlights the DCF and psychiatrists’ obsessive zeal in continuing Justina’s psychiatric treatment despite their causing her condition to dangerously deteriorate. The writer points out some of the discrepancies between the DCF social workers’ court testimony and their prior discussions with Justina’s original medical doctor, and discrepancies between the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists guidelines for Justina’s case and those same doctors’ statements published in earlier research papers:

For example, the affidavit accused the Pelletiers of “obstructing her care,” and also reported that Boston Children’s Hospital does “not know where the parents picked up the current diagnosis and they are hard to disprove.”

The social worker failed to include in the affidavit that she had spoken directly to Tufts’ Dr. Korson, who had explained Justina’s mitochondrial diagnosis in great detail. The Juvenile Court judge ruled in favor of Boston Children’s Hospital and Justina became a ward of the state, severely restricting the Pelletiers’ access to their daughter.

In fact, the February 2013 “guidelines” drafted by Boston Children’s Hospital in regard to Justina’s case included: “set strict limitations on medical discussions with the family and eliminate interaction with providers outside our hospital” such as Dr. Korson. Unbelievably, the family and the treating physician were to be excluded from any conversation about the health and well-being of the 15-year-old captive.

The “guidelines” are a direct contradiction to what the psychiatric “team” muttered in published psychiatric papers. For instance, Dr. Simona Bujoreanu, Assistant in Psychology, and Dr. David DeMaso, psychiatrist-in-chief, both of Boston Children’s Hospital, co-authored an article entitled “Enhancing Working Relationship between Parents and Surgeons.”

In describing the treatment modality, DeMaso and Bujoreanu explain:

“The working relationship between parents and surgeons is fundamental in providing excellent health care to children and adolescents. The breakdown of this working relationship has a significant potential for detrimental effects on individual well-being and adverse systemic outcomes….”

So not only do these so-called medical practitioners forcibly take over the case of a child who is being treated for Mitochondrial Disease, which had indeed been medically and scientifically verified through exploratory surgery, so the “doctors” can implement their ideology of behavior modification. But these schnooks are apparently doing what they can to cover up their criminally negligent treatment of an innocent child.

I’m beginning to believe that not only is this “behavior modification” some sort of indoctrinated ideology being practiced by these “doctors,” but with their outright zeal in this case it gives the feeling of bordering on a kind of religious zealotry.

Apparently Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier is ready to file a “writ of habeas corpus in Massachusetts Supreme Court for ‘wrongful imprisonment’,” according to ABC News. And who can blame him?

The Pelletiers really need to press a multitude of criminal charges against the Children’s Hospital doctors as well as the DCF social workers who have been complicit in causing Justina’s condition to deteriorate as it has.

The aforementioned Citizens Commission on Human Rights article concludes:

Additionally, under the United Nation’s 2013 Report by the Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Pelletiers certainly could claim Justina’s human rights have been violated: “Medical care that causes severe suffering for no justifiable reason can be considered cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and if there is State involvement and specific intent, it is torture.”

Surely, when a child’s life is at stake, even the governing bodies overseeing those institutions that claim to represent the best interests of children, would demand proof of the medical diagnosis. Or is it possible that Massachusetts has so easily forgotten the dreadful prosecutions of Salem, born from rumor, speculation and belief?

Beware of Zealous Doctors Who Might Falsely Accuse Parents of Abuse

June 2, 2018

I have written quite a few times about Justina Pelletier the teenager who suffers from Mitochondrial Disease but who was taken off her treatment by doctors more loyal to their “behavior modification” ideology than to their oath to “Do no harm.” I mentioned her case most recently in this article.

As far as I know, Justina and her family are suing Boston Children’s hospital, and the lawsuit is still pending.

But I found this article from January from a Mitochondrial Disease News website, about parents who face false charges of “medical child abuse” by “doctors” and hospitals. The article includes references to Justina Pelletier, whose parents were falsely charged with such. The article states, “But in recent years, the U.S. mitochondrial disease community has been hit with hundreds of other false accusations of medical child abuse. MaryBeth Hollinger of MitoAction says the problem is getting worse.”

In many cases, “doctors” aren’t able to immediately find a cause for a patient’s symptoms, and already jump to the conclusion that “it’s all in her head,” i.e. the cause is psychological, to them. And many times, the doctors rush to insist that the young patient be kept in their psychiatric ward as an in-patient, to do God-knows-what, but especially to give them those goddamn psychiatric drugs. The article doesn’t say that, but that’s been my conclusion. So in my view, these damn doctors are obsessed with drugging up their patients. It’s like a religion to them, it seems to me. And also, in many cases the Children’s Hospitals or other hospitals are government-funded research hospitals, as was the case with Justina Pelletier. The doctors use the patient as a guinea pig to give these horrible drugs to and to experiment on.

The article points out, “Hollinger spoke of a general lack of awareness, noting that ‘most doctors were never taught anything about mitochondrial disease.’ Because the disease involves energy production, it varies greatly from one person to the next.”

And the article gives good advice to parents, which I back 1,000%:

Hollinger advised parents to watch what they say around doctors and nurses, and to think twice before posting photos of their children on Facebook or Twitter.

“You have to really be careful about what you share, and how it could impact your child down the line,” she said. “I would definitely say no photos. What law enforcement does is use social media to see if you are guilty or not. It is the most important aspect of their investigation. They consider social media your crime scene. Any picture that could embarrass your child at less than 18 years old is considered abusive.”

Anti-Jewish Attacks and Mass Shootings; Psychiatric Drugs, Gun Control, Knife Control

A wacko intruded on Hanukkah candle lighting services at a rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, New York and attacked 5 people, stabbing them with a knife. The attacker attempted to get away in his Nissan Sentra but he was stopped and arrested by police.

New York has had several incidents of anti-Jewish attacks in recent years. What is with these people? As the late Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?”

There are many issues here to address, and I have very little time with which to address them. But one issue is, was it really antisemitism that was the main contributor to the attacker’s attack? Apparently, the 37-year-old synagogue attacker “has a long history of mental illness and hospitalizations. He has no history of like violent acts and no convictions for any crime,” according to his family.

You see, one problem in our society now is that if someone has some emotional issues, or any kind of psychological or behavioral issues, the “doctors,” hospitals and schools immediately put the person on terrible psychiatric drugs, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, SSRI antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft and Luvox, and anti-ADHD and other drugs to “help” the person such as someone who is labeled by practitioners as “autistic,” etc. I am not saying that this attacker has been taking any of those drugs, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

As I wrote previously regarding the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and discussed in this post, those psychiatric drugs have a history of causing someone’s depression to get worse, causing suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and contributing to a person’s judgment that affects one’s ability to empathize with others as well as one’s ability to control aggressive impulses. Dr. Peter Breggin has written and spoken about these issues extensively and testified before Congressional committees on these issues.

And besides this week’s New York synagogue stabbing attack, following that there was another church shooting in Texas. Two people had been killed, but almost immediately the shooter was killed by armed citizens who shot back.

These attacks have been happening more in recent years, and many of the attackers had been taking strong psychiatric drugs. So, as I had mentioned previously, those past attackers include Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, the South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof, the Santa Barbara college shooter Elliot Rodger, the Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, the Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, and the Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had all been taking those damn psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

I stopped trying to find out if any of the more recent mass killers had been taking those psychiatric drugs. This older article and this one list several more earlier examples of mass killers who had been taking psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

So, as I have mentioned in my previous posts, if someone wanted to stop taking the psychiatric drugs, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.

The reason why many people don’t know about those aspects of recent mass killings is that mainstream news outlets get a lot of their advertising revenues from the pharmaceutical companies. With these issues and other issues such as the nationwide blackout on the truth about the FBI and CIA’s illegally going after the Trump campaign and administration, we have seen just how dishonest and corrupt the mainstream news media really are. They are a disgrace.

So anyway, rather than frothing at the mouth over “hate” in society, perhaps the New York governor Andrew Cuomo ought to discuss why so many recent mass killers had been shown to be taking psychiatric drugs which no doubt have been contributing to their judgments and affecting their sense of empathy and conscience (or lack thereof).

Now, that’s the first issue involved here. Another issue is what is going on with the “black community” that is causing so much hate directed toward Jews? Again, obviously not all black people hate Jews. And not all the anti-Jewish attacks in New York had been committed by black people, but that has been common now. Robert Wenzel addressed this issue, and points out the possible influence that the “Nation of Islam” might have on certain communities, and particularly on the college campuses. The “Nation of Islam” is the organization led by Louis Farrakhan, a popular but anti-Jewish “minister.”

And finally, these incidents, including the anti-Jewish attacks in New York and elsewhere, show that the short-sighted, emotion-driven calls for more gun control are counter-productive. Will we see calls for “knife control” now? They have had that in the land of idiocy, England, for a while now.

Regarding these issues, there is an important organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). On their About page, they write:

Three primary goals drive the Washington-based human-rights group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).

Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control”.

Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.

And,

JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.

Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokespeople actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman

As JPFO expanded its research into gun laws and the results of their enactments, it became blatantly obvious that so-called “gun control” had played a fundamental role in all the major genocides of the 20 th Century … not just the Holocaust. See: The Genocide Chart

So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.

Based on this insight, JPFO broke new ground with the award-winning documentary Innocents Betrayed. In this powerful film, viewers learn the dirty secret of “gun control”: how governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then murdered them ruthlessly. Fifty eight minutes of hard-hitting facts that leave viewers dazed.

So that is what they have to say about that. And I agree with them 1,000%.

And like most of the people on the Left, New York Gov. Cuomo is also big on gun control. He, along with Dianne Feinstein, Cory Schnooker and the rest of them want to disarm innocent people and make them defenseless to the criminal aggression of others.

And I wonder if Cuomo is now going to suggest “knife control.” Is he also going to suggest “hate control” such as with more censorship of the Internet and other places of speech and expression?

Attempted Coups and Impeachments, and How the National Security State Harms the People

How ironic that the people who claim to believe in “democracy” but who have been trying to overturn a fair election are called “Democrats.”

And I agree in part with the commentators who are saying that Nancy Lugosi, Soviet Schiff and Nutty Nadler are “useful idiots” for the national security state’s attempted coup of the executive branch of the U.S. government. The bureaucratic security state apparatchiks in Warshington are so full of themselves with their delusions of grandeur who, despite their constant incompetence and buffoonery, can do no wrong.

But when Donald Trump comes along and says, “DRAIN THE SWAMP!” they go off the deep end. They are threatened. Their livelihoods are threatened. Their government paychecks, pensions and retirement goodies are threatened. We can’t have that.

So, the apparatchiks set people up and entrap them, or put non-suspects under surveillance (a.k.a. “spying”), such as Mike Flynn, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, and make things up such as with the “Steele dossier” with “golden showers,” etc., and then fraudulently abuse the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by lying to FISA judges to get warrants. And these people then coordinated with certain members of the “news” media to disseminate propaganda to influence the general public to falsely believe their fake news about Donald Trump cahooting with Russians to steal the 2016 election.

And this after the FBI falsely exonerates Hillary Clinton and overlooks the Clinton Foundation’s corruption and criminality. After a nearly 3-year Mueller investigation that turned up nothing, the “Democrats” with the help of a White House leaker-propagandist (a.k.a. “whistleblower,” which he is not) then went on to criminalize a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president in which Trump is trying to make sure the foreign aid recipient country is weeding out corruption. The CIA goon leaker-propagandist and his helpers in the national “intelligence” community made sure they could pick out a phone call in which a possible Trump 2020 election opponent is mentioned. That would be Joe Biden.

And so the House “Democrats” take the information, they have hearings, they have professional government parasites as witnesses, and then they write articles of impeachment and the “democrats” vote to impeach The Donald. But the Senate will not convict him, and it even appears that coward Pelosi may not even send the articles to the Senate.

So, do I have all this correct so far?

In my January article on the Mueller fiasco, regarding the collusions case that wasn’t, and the mainstream media’s propaganda to help the coup efforts, I wrote:

The Washington Post began the anti-honest journalism campaign coinciding with the Obama DOJ and FBI’s targeting of the Trump campaign in “Russia collusions,” with WaPo’s post-election article, “Russian propaganda effort to spread ‘fake news’ during the election.”

Even at that early time, plenty of objective people could see that this was already a witch hunt. As I wrote and documented last July, many in the news media colluded with the Clinton campaign to help Hillary while pushing the false “Trump-Russia” narrative.

in the Washington Post‘s mid-2016 article, “Russian government hackers penetrated DNC, stole opposition research on Trump,” the main source of that assertion is the DNC’s cyber firm, CrowdStrike, one of whose founders had ties to an anti-Russian think tank in Washington, and was proven to use faulty software. However, there is also an exploit that intelligence agencies have used to associate “Russian fingerprints” with hacks.

This July, 2016 New York Times article states, “…Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, argued on ABC’s This Week that the emails were leaked ‘by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump’ citing ‘experts’ but offering no other evidence.”

Former NSA analyst William Binney and CIA analyst Ray McGovern have shown even more holes in the Russia-“hacking” narrative, by demonstrating that the DNC emails were not hacked remotely but were accessed directly and leaked to WikiLeaks, probably by a DNC insider. Former British ambassador Craig Murray had confirmed this.

Then there was Hillary Clinton’s claim that “17 intelligence agencies” concluded that Russians meddled in the 2016 election. But it was really 4, not 17. At least, that is what former director of national intelligence James Clapper stated in testimony.

Claims of “Russia hacking U.S. election systems” were continuously debunked. And investigative journalist Gareth Porter has this further analysis.

Former FBI director James Comey and former NSA director Mike Rogers both testified that they were not aware of any evidence to show the 2016 election was hacked.

In early 2017, when WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was negotiating with U.S. government officials for “limited immunity” in exchange for Assange’s refraining from releasing further CIA-related documents, such talks were squashed by then-FBI director James Comey and Sen. Mark Warner, because Assange was also going to provide evidence which ruled out Russia as the source of the DNC leaks, according to Ray McGovern of Consortium News and John Solomon of The Hill.

And regarding the Russians who actually were indicted by the Mueller team, I wrote:

in July 2018 Mueller indicted 12 more Russian agents, supposedly of Russia’s intelligence agency the GRU, this time to do with “hacking” the DNC and the Clinton campaign computers, once again with no evidence produced, as Moon of Alabama and Joe Lauria explained.

And here is more that I wrote in that article to explain the FBI’s criminal enterprise of illegal surveillance and election meddling:

George Neumayr of The American Spectator wrote about the early John Brennan CIA-British GCHQ spy ring, spying on Trump associates especially Mike Flynn in 2014 and ’15, well before Trump announced his Presidential run. The Hill’s John Solomon expands on the London connection to Russia-gate.

According to Fox News, Rudy Giuliani referred to Brennan as the “quarterback” who passed the unverified Steele dossier on to Sen. Harry Reid. And Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel called Brennan the “ringmaster” of the whole thing.

To spy on the Trump campaign in 2016, the Obama FBI and DOJ relied on unverified information, mainly from the notorious “Steele dossier,” to get judges to sign on to the FISA spying applications, according to Andrew McCarthy.

The FBI relied heavily on the Steele dossier to present it as “evidence” against Trump associates to obtain the FISA warrants, even though they knew that Christopher Steele, hired by Fusion GPS, had lied to them and was not credible, according to Byron York of the Washington Examiner. (i.e. the FBI lied to the FISA court judges, which is not a surprise, given the FBI’s own shady history.) Zero Hedge provides informative specifics on the FISA warrant applications.

Despite knowing that the Steele dossier was, in James Comey’s words, “salacious and unverified,” Robert Mueller continued to rely on the dossier anyway, according to Real Clear Investigations.

The Daily Caller reported that a CIA and FBI informant named Stefan Halper had infiltrated the Trump campaign to spy on Carter Page and George Papadopoulos. And then it was revealed by Naxios that Halper had gotten Trump administration economic advisor Peter Navarro to recommend Halper for a top position in the administration.

There was a second spy, supposedly on behalf of the Obama administration, who had approached Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo and campaign co-chairman Sam Clovis. Caputo implicated the Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper, according to Zero Hedge.

Incidentally, Glenn Greenwald reported that Stefan Halper had previously been a Jimmy Carter administration spy in the Reagan 1980 campaign. (Can you make this stuff up?)

The FBI has admitted it used multiple spies to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

Please click on all the links and read those articles. You’ll see much of it is completely foreign to what you’ve been used to hearing from the mainstream “news” media these past 3 years now. And no, you can’t make this stuff up. The “news” media have not only been suppressing much of this information, but they have also been making up fake news and promoting their propaganda as … “news.”

And now we have all the Ukraine and Joe/Hunter Biden stuff. Will mainstream media suppress all this, too? I just heard Rudy Giuliani on with Glenn Beck this morning, and Giuliani is saying that he has obtained documents on the corruption in Ukraine that involved Joe/Hunter Biden. Should we believe Rudy Giuliani? After all, he is a loathsome, ghastly and corrupt politician.

By the way, John Solomon has a recent article on the Latvian government saying it flagged “suspicious” Hunter Biden payments in 2016.

But on the impeachment Senate trial that might not happen, I don’t think that Senators Lindsey Graham, Shovel-Face McConnell and Charles Grassfed want the crimes of the FBI and CIA to be exposed, so they probably will shut it down before it begins.

And regarding the FBI, I have written in the past:

All you have to do is read these recent articles by James Bovard on the history of FBI shenanigans.

So, while we are seeing frame-ups, false accusations and impeachments against Donald Trump and his associates (not particularly angels, I know), will we see Hillary Rotten Clinton prosecuted for all her crimes? What about James Comey, John Brennan, James Claptrapper, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, Sally Yates, and many corrupt others? (Well, I am not holding my breath. But we can hope for a miracle, can’t we?)

Trump Signs Executive Order Pandering to Jewish Voters and Israel

So now we hear that Donald Trump has signed an executive order determining what “anti-Semitism” is, like including criticism of Israel or Judaism, and punishing such speech as thought crimes by denying federal funds to colleges and schools or other programs shown to allow or tolerate “anti-Semitism” on campus.

As Kelley Vlahos at The American Conservative writes,”What it really will do is put a chill on speech, as skittish administrations shut down protests, screen speakers, and monitor classrooms for unsanctioned criticisms against Israel.” Yep.

Alan Dershowitz, otherwise known as “Mr. Freedom of Speech” and “Mr. First Amendment,” supports this and was there at the Trump Order-signing ceremony. Oh well. There goes that one. So much for Alan Dershowitless. He used to say that a worse alternative to bad speech is no speech — but now, when it comes to Israel he is for silencing others with whom he disagrees. May we now call him “Mr. Censorship”?

But this should be a further example why we need to:

1. Abolish all government redistribution of wealth schemes altogether. No one should receive funds that were taken involuntarily from others. That’s stealing. (Abolish the income tax, too.)

2. Get the government out of education. Abolish the federal Department of Education. Total separation of education and State in a free society.

3. Repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all its subsequent Amendments, or strike any parts that apply to privately owned property. Only the government may not “discriminate” against people based on religion, national origin, sex or race. It should not apply to people in their private associations or economic matters. Otherwise, it is a thought crimes act. This current executive order imposed by the orange fascist is based on Title VI of the Act.

Unfortunately, politicians pander to a very sensitive spot in American politics: support for Israel. Many politicians tremble at the thought of not being seen as a big supporter of Israel, so they overdo it. (See Rand Paul and his “Stand with Israel Act.” Pander, pander, pander, Rand.)

And then there are the True Believers, the zealous Christian Zionists like George W. Bush, Mike Pompeo, and our current vice president Mike Pence who support Israel and “the Jews” mainly because the zealots believe in “End Times,” and the “Great Tribulation,” the “Rapture,” and all that icky stuff. They only support “the Jews” because they are looking forward to those End Times when, in order for Jews to be saved they will convert to Christianity and become believers in Jesus Christ as The Savior. Or else, they won’t be saved.

But regarding Trump’s fascist threats against colleges and schools, academic institutions used to be places encouraging debates from all perspectives, the expression of any ideas, including uncommon, dissenting and even abhorrent ideas. But as we know now, the political correctness and intolerance give us silencing of uncommon, dissenting and supposedly abhorrent ideas. Apparently believing that there are only two genders is now an abhorrent idea. Some people including the moron President think that criticizing Israel is an abhorrent idea, no matter what its government does.

But if you criticize Israel now, you are an “anti-Semite” (or a “self-hating Jew” in my case). There are many sound reasons to criticize Israel, just as there are many sound reasons to criticize the United State of Amerika. I do the latter all the time here. Why is Israel so special? Why is Israel such a snowflake that it can’t endure some critical opinions?

I personally am not a Zionist, because I am not a collectivist and don’t believe in group identity politics. That is what Israel is all about. Zionism is a political movement for over 100 years encouraging the world’s Jews to move to that one location, based on the Bible and Biblical scriptures. It isn’t based on living a better life, because if it were then Jews should be encouraged to live in the United State of Amerika. Israel is a socialist nation based on government central planning, and a militarist police state, much more than the U.S. Imagine TSA and U.S. border control “your papers please” but not just in the airports or on the border, but throughout the whole country.

And why must there be a “Jewish State”? Should there be a Christian state? An Islamic state? Or an atheist state? Duh.

People should live where they want to live, where they feel most comfortable, where it’s economically or culturally best for them, and so on. If they want to live in some kind of neighborhood covenant based on Judaism, then do that. But to seize an entire territory, which is what the British Empire, the U.S. and other Western governments and their militaries did during the 20th Century, and have it be an artificial country based on a particular religion at the expense of people who hold different religious views, then we have not only a theocracy but an entire country that’s based on the negation of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

But we’re not allowed to say those things or give those opinions. People dare not consider those concepts or those ideas of dissent from the usual dogma they’ve been fed since their early childhoods.

So, unlike Israel where there is no Constitution or Bill of Rights or a First Amendment protecting freedom of speech, in the United State we DO have those things. And we can say whatever we want about the bureaucrats and criminals of the U.S. government (sorry for the redundancy), just as we can say what we want about Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and worse, the U.K.

Even here in Amerika, we can say what we want about religions. Including Judaism. That’s not “hate speech,” or “discrimination.” I can say that Judaism and Christianity are not my thing, even though I consider myself Jewish because I was raised in a Jewish family. But I don’t believe in a lot of the Biblical teachings. I think that Judaism is, like Christianity, a very authoritarian religion. But then, I can’t think of a religion that is not authoritarian. And I can criticize it for that reason if I want to.

Just like the conservatives and talk radio personalities we hear are constantly criticizing Islam, another extremely authoritarian religion. Right?

Speaking of authoritarians, the Orange One is extremely authoritarian in his imposing an executive order to stifle freedom of speech on college campuses in the name of pandering to Israel and Jewish voters.
