More Brainwashed Loony-Tunes

Yes, Donald Trump is horrible when it comes to immigration, trade, the war on drugs, and many other socialist/fascist policies. He LOVES government central planning. But the people on the left are getting worse and worse, as they, too, go after innocent people, and are becoming increasingly “unhinged,” and crazed.

In a recent spat via Twitter and interviews, Speaker Nancy Lugosi seemed to scold four of her fellow Democrats who voted against a border security bill, which Kellyanne Conway then said or tweeted, “Major Meow Mashup with @SpeakerPelosi brushing back anti-humanitarian border aid fresh-women @AOC @IlhanMN @AyannaPressley @RashidaTlaib,” according to The Hill.

A “mashup”? As in the “Monster Mash”? Or Justin Amashup? And yes, they are “fresh women,” as they are obviously “fresh,” in my view.

After which, “Freshwoman” Congresswomanperson Ayanna Pressley, who wants to lower the voting age to 16, tweeted, “@KellyannePolls oh hi Distraction Becky. Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages? Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth.” (“Fresh” much?)

Now, I’ve seen the name “Becky” mentioned before, and when looking that up, I see that Wikipedia notes that “Becky” is “increasingly functioning as an epithet, and being used especially to refer to a white woman who is ignorant of both her privilege and her prejudice.”

In other words, it is a racial epithet, being used by an apparent racist, in this case a racist black person who is insulting a white person with a racial term.

And this is what our society is becoming. It’s okay to spew racist language directed toward a white person, but it’s not okay to do so toward a black person. Well, as Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?” And what ever happened to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “content of one’s character” philosophy?

Nope. The people on the Hard Left are obsessed with race, gender, and sexual issues. Identity politics is their thing. But then, that’s the thing for those on the other side as well. The anti-immigration, anti-foreigner droolers like Donald Trump and Ann Coultard. But whatever.

And then in Detroit, a music festival called, “AfroFuture Fest,” decided to charge white concert-goers twice for a ticket than they were charging black people. Or, “POC” vs. non-“POC.” That stands for “People of Color,” so apparently they don’t realize that those letters also refer to something else, but in a negative way. Yes, they actually used “POC.”

But because of a lot of blowback, “AfroFuture Fest” reversed the policy. However, they reversed the policy not because of seeing the racist-motivated injustice of treating some people differently than others based on race, but because they said there were racist “threats from white supremacists.”

Right. “White supremacists” are interested in attending a music festival by “AfroFuture.”

One of Ayanna Pressley’s ideological cohorts, Boston’s Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins, is one of those prosecutors who has dropped many cases or reduced charges to prevent prison time supposedly non-violent crimes such as shoplifting, but also, according to the Boston Globe, 11 assault or assault and battery charges. That’s not exactly non-violent.

In one of those cases, a guy was accused of punching his wife in the face. In another case, a guy assaulted a lady and her dog and gave the lady fractured skull and other injuries, “traumatic brain injury, speech and vision impairments, permanent hearing loss in one ear, vertigo, and other serious medical issues.” They gave him a “two-year suspended sentence with three years probation, and (he) was ordered to stay away from the victim...”

In an op-ed, Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe wrote that Rollins is one of those “social justice” DAs, and “that we should exempt groups of people from having to obey the law is an insult to them and a destructive form of pandering, because it suggests that these people are lesser beings than those we expect to obey the law.”

Rollins responds by stating, “If the person presents with mental health issues, substance use disorder, homelessness, or poverty, we’re going to pause just for a moment to see who is this person in front of us … Before branding someone with a criminal record, we just want to pause if they have some of those characteristics.

No, Rachael, in a civilized society you don’t physically attack someone, or violate anyone’s person or property. “Mental health issues, substance use disorder, homelessness, or poverty” are irrelevant to someone acting on his own free will to hurt others.

If this is the way the “Justice” system is going in America, then it’s time to privatize that (as well as everything else!).

So I was listening to Jeff Kuhner discussing that issue the other day, talking about “Racist Rachael” and he has written about her before. He’s terrible on the immigration and nationalism issues (because he’s ignorant and brainwashed like Trump and Ann Coultard), but he’s somewhat okay on this “social justice” stuff. So anyway, my conclusion is, I have a feeling that based on this “social justice” and “reparations” agenda, Rollins may be wanting to prosecute assailants less if they are black or Hispanic, and less if the victims are white. It’s just a feeling, I’m not accusing, however. I hope I’m wrong.

And then there’s the anti-civil liberties “Antifa.” They say they’re “anti-fascist,” but through their own actions at demonstrations and protests, they are clearly anti-civil liberties. I think that Antifa members, beating up on a journalist who is merely videotaping and documenting the public protest, are clearly being anti-civil liberties. They act like the fascists they claim to oppose. Hmm, I wonder why they wear masks and cover their identities, and don’t want journalists to photograph or record them? (Perhaps because they know they will be engaging in wrongdoing and criminality and don’t want to be identified? Ya think?)

And the Antifa sheeple-thugs mindlessly chant these slogans such as “No more hate” and “Nazis,” etc. So I guess it’s not hateful when they throw rocks at people or whack someone over the head with a club? These chanting masked zombie-goons are just as brainwashed with irrationality as the nationalists.

And speaking of irrational, the crazed loonies on the left now want to boycott Home Depot because its co-founder Bernie Marcus has expressed support for Trump in 2020. It’s not like Home Depot is engaged in some sort of racist hiring practices or fraud, which might be why people might boycott.

And we are seeing banks and credit card companies terminating customers or otherwise cutting people off, mainly conservatives, those who have expressed in some way some sort of disagreement of or criticism of the latest “social justice” idiocy. Not good. And stores such as Amazon deleting pages or books or products of Christians or former gays and lesbians or transgender “deniers,” etc.

The crazed “social justice” wing of the national security state went after Donald Trump starting well before the campaign, with illegal FISA spying and what I would say is prosecutable under the RICO Act. The allegations against Trump were all made up. So as soon as the Mueller investigation was complete, the zombies in Congress immediately began a new fishing expedition going after Trump’s taxes, with no actual crime they accused him of and no specific evidence to show for cause.

Well, one of the latest developments is a new book by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, now at #1 on Amazon, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, on the methods and tactics of the people on the left. They just make things up about someone they don’t like to try to derail his or her career.

Now, I don’t care much for Kavanaugh, because he’s a rubber-stamper for the police state, the surveillance state, the CIA and NSA, Guantanamo, etc. But his opponents don’t understand what a “social justice” warrior he himself actually is. Oh, well.

Anyway, I think that people are acting irrationally by donating their money to political campaigns including Donald Trump, the fraudster Elizabeth Warren and the scum “Beto” O’Rourke, and all the rest. Why waste your money on these people? On a campaign to further the empowerment of the State over your life? If you want to waste your money like that, give it to me, for crying out loud!

But I digress. The people on the left are increasingly irrational and dangerous, probably because of having fried their brains on all those drugs in their earlier years, from marijuana and LSD to Xanax and Ritalin. Not good.

Trump Imprisons the Truth-Tellers But Wants to Pardon Murderers

It appears that the military-worshiping drone-murder-in-chief Donald Trump wants to pardon some military personnel who are either accused or convicted of murdering innocent civilians.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning, is being held in prison, as is Julian Assange, for their having revealed to the American people and to the world the various war crimes that the U.S. military had committed in Afghanistan and Iraq and other places where U.S. bureaucrats have no moral or constitutional authority to be, as well as revealing the diplomatic corruption of U.S. and other government officials.

An important, extensive new article details the Iraq War part of the WikiLeaks releases for which the U.S. and U.K. governments want to persecute the aforementioned truth-tellers.

So, the moral degenerate Trump believes that murderers of innocent people must get away with their crimes, but those who shine the light on them are to be tortured, imprisoned, and killed. (Trump being the authoritarian fascist was apparent for years, so no surprise there.)

On Government Bureaucrats Committing “Treason” Against the People of the States

Law professor Jonathan Turley seems to be misinterpreting some tweets by Donald Trump, as well as showing a lack of understanding of Trump’s use of the word “treason.”

First, Turley writes,

President Donald Trump appears intent on fueling calls for impeachment with unhinged statements calling some who worked with Special Counsel Robert Mueller as possible “traitors” and promising to “turn the tables” and to “bring them to justice”. While the President could simply relish the lack of findings of any criminal conduct, he has again adopted disturbing rhetoric that is reminiscent more of authoritarian regimes than American administrations.

But the Trump tweets that Turley is referring to are these:

“Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue.”

“It was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the “Report” about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened.”

“It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even spying or treason. This should never happen again!”

Turley is misunderstanding just whom Trump is talking about when it comes to “treason.” Trump is not talking about “some who worked with Special Counsel Robert Mueller,” to quote Turley, as acting treasonously.

While Trump did refer to “18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters” on the Mueller team, he was not talking about them. No, Trump is referring to the ones involved in “an Illegally Started Hoax” as the ones who acted treasonously. The ones who promoted made-up allegations in the Steele dossier and pushed that to the media and fraudulently obtained FISA spying warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign and for political reasons.

So when Trump is tweeting, “time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even spying or treason,” he is referring to James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, and Sally Yates especially, the four who signed the FISA warrant applications knowing that the Steele dossier they relied upon was in fact unreliable and unverified information, and that it heavily used oppo research paid for by the Hillary campaign. Others involved in the scheme included John Brennan, Loretta Lynch, and Peter Strzok.

In the U.S. Constitution, the section on Treason (Article III, Section 3) states:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

As Thomas DiLorenzo pointed out, the phrase “United States” is referring to the states that make up the various states in the union, in plural form. It is not referring to a single unit. And the “treason” is when, for example, bureaucrats of the U.S. government in Washington, D.C. use the apparatus of war making against the states (“Treason against the United States”), or against the people of the states.

So as I wrote here, the “intelligence community” and national security bureaucrats’ FISA spying against people or citizens of the United States, committed by political apparatchiks in Washington and for purely political reasons, really does fit the constitutional definition of “Treason,” because the FISA spying (in which FISA stands for “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act”) is a part of the government’s war making apparatus. “Levying war against them,” as the Constitution notes.

So, Turley is erroneously suggesting that Trump is acting like an “authoritarian” dictator who will jail a disloyal, disobedient subject for “treason,” whereas it’s really the other way around. The bureaucrats in the government (Brennan, Comey, Rosenstein, Yates, Strzok, McCabe, etc.) who turned the spying war-making apparatus against other citizens are the ones who acted treasonously. It was they who were the apparatchiks of an “authoritarian regime” in Washington.

Good Detailed Summary of What Led Up to “Trump-Russia Collusions” Conspiracy Theory

Former State Department employee Peter van Buren has an article in which he details the “primordial ooze of the collusion conspiracy,” that begins with the Clinton campaign and the DNC in mid-2016, their using Fusion GPS and British spy Christopher Steele to dig deep and get oppo dirt on Trump as well as make stuff up (the “Steele dossier”), and how Steele got the made-up information to the FBI and DOJ who used it as a basis for fraudulent, unlawful FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and to start a propaganda campaign promoting the conspiracy theory of “Trump-Russia collusions” that never happened.

Additionally, Justin Raimondo on his twitter linked to his article of January, 2017, “The Foreign Plot to Oust Trump” stretching from London to Langley.

Smollett MAGA-Attack Hoax Charges Dropped

I can’t believe I’m wasting my time writing this. I really don’t have time today anyway. And also I had never even heard of Jussie Smollett prior to this whole story.

It appears that all charges of actor Smollett’s hoax of a hate crime attack have been dropped, and there’s no good explanation as to why that is. Apparently the FBI is investigating the circumstances surrounding the dropping of the charges.

Smollett is the black and gay actor who allegedly falsely claimed that people wearing MAGA hats (i.e. Trump supporters) had attacked him and used racial and anti-gay slurs. But the evidence had surfaced that he was claiming that falsely and he was then charged.

Interestingly, within the same day of the dropping of those criminal charges against Smollett, Russia-collusions probe “special counsel” Robert Mueller delivered his final report to Congress, admitting after a 2+ year investigation that there was no collusion or conspiracy between the Trump 2016 campaign and Putin’s Russia government to interfere with the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

My, what a coincidence of timing there. Is it just a coincidence?

For nearly three years FBI and DOJ apparatchiks, the Democrats and news media flunkies had been promoting the false narrative of Trump-Russia collusions/hacking the election, which those who are actually informed of the facts know was never the case and that it was a deliberate frame-up job against Donald Trump.

And there were no actual attackers with MAGA hats on, assaulting Jussie Smollett. I guess a prolonged case with a trial in the news, with the evidence supporting the allegation against Smollett of a hoax MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters proving to be false, would even further reinforce the truth that’s being exposed now, all these false narratives mainly by the left are just that: false narratives.

I can see why the Internet intruders want to censor alternative media.

The “Mueller Report”: The Coup Failed. But Will the Real Conspirators See the Hoosegow?

So yesterday I’m listening to these Sunday news shows Meet the Depressed, Fake the Nation and Faux News Sunday, rebroadcast on Bloomberg Radio, and today these local liberal talk radio personalities, and it’s like they’re all living in a different world of non-reality. They are in a world far removed from the truth, especially when it comes to the long-anticipated “Mueller Report,” and attorney general William Barr’s spin on it to Congress.

The media groupies are still clinging to the notion that Trump “obstructed justice” and they’re still talking impeachment, when in reality it was the high-up FBI and DOJ flunkies who “obstructed justice” in their falsely exonerating Hillary Clinton in her rogue email mishandlings, by changing the words “gross negligence” to “extremely careless,” in order to falsely get out of criminally indicting Clinton.

And will the impeachment-obsessed Jerrold Nadler and Adam Schiffty look into the “insurance policy” that the high-ups at DOJ and FBI implemented to try to ward off a Trump presidency or to sabotage it if it were to occur? The usage of the Steele dossier that British spy Christopher Steel wrote up on Trump that was filled with made-up allegations with no verification whatsoever?

In fact, Bruce Ohr at the DOJ told senior FBI and DOJ bureaucrats, and obviously the signers of the FISA warrant applications that were used to illicitly spy on Trump campaign people, that the information used for those FISA applications, the “Steele dossier,” was unverified, and the officials then misled FISA court judges who signed the warrants. So, if there are to be indictments for “obstruction of justice” and “conspiracy,” they need to be handed to James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein, the officials who submitted FISA warrant applications with unverified information to the FISA judges. I wrote about all that in this article in January.

I have a feeling that, thanks to the propagandists of the mainstream media, most people have never even heard of Bruce Ohr.

So will the Obama-Comey FBI/DOJ spy ring get indicted? That also includes the former director of national intelligence (sic) James Clapper and CIA director John Brennan. Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal called Brennan the “ringmaster” and Giuliani referred to him as the “quarterback.”

Can you imagine if the Bush DOJ and FBI spied on the Obama campaign and attempted to falsely accuse Obama of “collusions with Russia to sway the 2008 election”?

And all those indictments handed down by the Mueller fishing expedition? Nothing to do with “Russia collusions” to change the 2016 election.

The first group of Russians who were indicted were using social media because they were trying to make money. It was a money-making click-bait scheme.

But the second group of Russians from the Russian intelligence GRU, were indicted to do with non-existent “hacking” of the DNC and the Clinton campaign computers, but the indictments were not substantiated with any evidence whatsoever, as we heard from Moon of Alabama and Joe Lauria. The Mueller people just made it all up.

And Paul Manafort’s dealings were with Ukrainians, not Russians, and having nothing to do with the 2016 election, and his tax-related indictments were from years ago, well before the 2016 election! Then there was Mike Flynn’s “guilty” plea for lying to investigators, after having been entrapped by FBI, even though FBI’s top agent Strzok believed that Flynn was not lying.

The whole thing has been a fishing expedition and an attempted frame-up of Trump. And I’m not even a Trump supporter.

The reasons these “national security” apparatchiks went after Trump — joined enthusiastically by the toadies of the media and the rest of the government losers in Washington — wasn’t just because he criticized the national security establishment and their terrible wars.

It was also because he’s a successful entrepreneur. Government losers HATE successful entrepreneurs. So it’s also a part of their ENVY that we are seeing more and more of from government worshipers now. That is part of why government “law enforcement” went after Martha Stewart — and Michael Milken, Aaron Swarz, Joseph Nacchio and John Kinnucan, and others.

And now government “law enforcement” is going after Robert Kraft. The goons can easily go after ANY famous celebrity male patronizing a house of prostitution. So why Robert Kraft, and only weeks after his Patriots won their 6th Super Bowl? I have answered my own question. Duh. There’s that envy again. And that’s why. (And maybe because Kraft is a Trump supporter? Ya think?)

It’s the inherent nature of the government parasite who would never make it in the private sector, or anywhere were it not for the forced redistribution of wealth scheme that’s been financed by the thievery of the income tax for the past century.

And the FBI has been going after The Donald since at least 2003, as we know from Felix Sater. The anti-business FBI has probably been wanting to get Trump since the 1980s, quite frankly.
