Category: National Security State

Don’t Trust CNN, CBS, New York Times, et al. for Truthful Reporting, Only Propaganda

One thing we have gotten from the DOJ inspector general report on the FBI’s politically motivated “mistakes” and “incompetence” with the FISA applications for warrants to spy on Carter Page using the Steele dossier as the “intel,” is how either ignorant and incompetent or just dishonest and corrupt the “news” media have been these past 2 or 3 years now in their defending the national security state. And it’s not the “deep state,” because it’s out in the open.

And now we have an impeachment of Trump based on a phone call. As soon as Trump won the election in 2016, Democrats were immediately calling for him to be impeached. They’ll take anything as an excuse to impeach him. And the “news” media have been carrying the establishment apparatchiks’ water.

As I wrote here, the “news” media have been propagandizing on behalf of Hillary Clinton and Democrats and lying or lying by omission on behalf of smearing or framing The Donald. And I’m not a Trump supporter as you already know, but I think the truth is important.

The late investigative journalist Robert Parry wrote, “The hatred of Trump and Putin was so intense that old-fashioned rules of journalism and fairness were brushed aside…Hatred of Trump had become like some invasion of the body snatchers –or perhaps many of my journalistic colleagues had never believed in the principles of journalism that I had embraced throughout my adult life.”

But, as Glenn Greenwald noted, “The political media is designed to be adversarial because it is supposed to serve as a scrutinizing check on the claims of those in power, not serve as worshipful, propagandistic amplifiers of those claims.” In that article Greenwald cites many instances in which our modern “news journalists” enmesh and schmooze themselves with government power-grabbers, becoming useful idiots for the national security state.

Americans need to divorce CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek and Time, and all the other propaganda forces who shill for the State.

If you want more truthful news and analysis on the FBI, the FISA revelations, and the national security state and media’s campaign of propaganda and framing against Trump, then the following recent articles would be better for that. A lot of detailed information including from the DOJ inspector general report that you won’t get from mainstream media:

Peter Van Buren gives some actual details from the DOJ inspector general’s report on FBI spying on the Trump campaign.

Zero Hedge with an article on the DOJ inspector general testifying this week that FBI should have stopped surveilling Carter Page.

Rowan Scarborough with an article on FBI misleading FISA court judges of Christopher Steele’s truth record.

Kangaroo Impeachment Hearings in Soviet Amerika

The swamp creatures who attach themselves like barnacles to the Washington spigot cannot tolerate anyone overly critical of the D.C. swamp, and certainly not someone who promises to “Drain the Swamp.” So, this is why the elite establishment have been on a fanatical crusade to get rid of Donald Trump, any which way they can (even though he is one of them as far as I’m concerned).

And this involves just making things up, using the unconstitutional FISA spying apparatus, going after Trump’s tax records without any specific wrongdoing to suspect him of, and using a routine phone call with which to impeach him. The swamp creatures will do these things to anyone now in the future who goes against their beloved State.

So now, the Soviet show trial in the Kangaroo Kongress is continuing, with “legal experts” appearing in the House Judiciary Committee. We heard from propagandists otherwise known as “law professors” a.k.a. la-la professors who agree with the mantra repeated over and over and over that Trump violated some law or some constitutional article in his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

With today’s political correctness newspeak and government police and FBI doing whatever criminal act they want, “law” means whatever any government official says it means at any particular time.

Propagandists like the la-la professors Pamela Karlan and Noah Feldman slobberingly repeated the mantra of “Trump-phone-call-treason-guilty-GUILTY!!” over and over and over like the government groupies of the mainstream media so that more people will believe the lies.

We hear propaganda more and more every day, it seems. Not just with “Trump-Russia-Collusions” and now “Trump-Ukraine-Blackmail,” but in other crusades such as the vaccine crusade and the climate change crusade. “That’s been debunked,” and “the science is settled,” and all that crap. But I digress.

So, either those “professors” know that Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president was legal based on the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act and its amendments and are merely acting as government propagandists, or they don’t know the law, in which case they are ignoramuses.

Anyway, the law on foreign aid is irrelevant, because the U.S. government and its Presidents have not been following it. As James Bovard wrote recently, foreign aid makes corrupt countries more corrupt.

So “Professor” Karlan, the self-described “snarky, bisexual Jewish woman” who spoke exploitatively of Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron, has squandered thousands of dollars of her own money on political campaigns of the lying fraudsters Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so, should we really trust Snarky’s judgment as far as what is legal or constitutional and what isn’t?

Another “constitutional expert” at the impeachment hearing was la-la professor Noah Feldman, a Harvard professor (that doesn’t really mean anything anymore). So Marty Feldman, I mean, Noah Feldman, who is now on record as acting in cahoots with Mark Zuckerberg to censor conservatives and Trump supporters from Fakebook, was an adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, a CIA-associated group. So, this is yet another “liberal” combined with being associated with the CIA, just like John Brennan. Hooray!

You’ve probably heard about this on radio ditto-head shows, but Feldman has written favorably about Islamic Sharia law, including in his 2008 Council on Foreign Relations-associated book, The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State. In an op-ed, he wrote, “Today, when we invoke the harsh punishments prescribed by Shariah for a handful of offenses, we rarely acknowledge the high standards of proof necessary for their implementation.” Huh? (What planet is this guy on?)

In fact, another witness at this week’s kangaroo impeachment show trial, Professor Jonathan Turley, has repeatedly written extensive criticisms of the Islamic punishments of Sharia law in Saudi Arabia, Iran and elsewhere. What is wrong with this Feldman guy?

But guess what? House Speaker Pelosi is now admitting that this whole impeachment show trial is not about a phone call or about Ukraine, but about Russia. They are still obsessed with falsely imprisoning Trump based on cahooting with Russia, which Trump was totally exonerated of by the two-year Mueller investigation.

Nancy says, “All roads lead to Putin.” And that’s that.

It is ironic that Nancy Pelosi is lecturing reporter James Rosen about the Constitution, given her fellow Democrat Barack Obama’s going after Rosen just like all the other journalists Obama tyrannized during his regime. So, the swamp creatures go after those who try to expose their slimy disgusting rottenness, I think.

Does Pelosi really believe this Russia crap? She and her swamp creature fellows just want to exact revenge on Trump for not only daring to promise to “Drain the Swamp,” but for actually winning the 2016 election and beating Hillary Rotten Clinton, the one who “rightfully deserves to be the first woman President,” etc., etc., etc.

And much of this is about the Supreme Court as well. The abortion fanatics see that as their protector, protecting their “rite of passage” that women must exercise (the rite of killing their offspring, that is). And they’re getting especially worried now, because it seems that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in a race to the end with Jimmy Carter. (Maybe those two can enter the Howie Carr Death Pool?)

Anyway, I don’t think I’ve seen a group of people, in Congress, media, Hollywood or the univer$ities and law $chools, as well as the Orwellian and Soviet-like culture in the loony tech world, who are soooo deranged, bananas and off their rockers about Trump and anyone who questions or speaks out against the statist quo and the loony-tunes PC garbage today. The crusaders are totally unhinged now.

And what exactly is causing all this craziness and corruption in Amerika? Government-controlled education? Centralization of power? I have no idea.

Or maybe it’s the birth control pill, that has recently and somewhat recently been found to shrink women’s brains and cause hormonal imbalance, problems with sex drive, mood and aggression. Not only The Pill, but many various pharmaceutical drugs that are really causing a lot of people to act in the bizarre ways we have been seeing. Xanax, Adderall, Ritalin, Zoloft, Luvox, Prozac, statin drugs, and all the rest.

Drugs, processed foods, vaccine adjuvants, not to mention the screen-staring and zombie texting obsessions that many people have now. People are going nuts now.

And also, the identity politics-obsessed reading lists that are being forced on high school students. What a sick, perverted society we are living in now. It’s an “Epstein World” now, unfortunately. And I understand why the disinterest in teaching cursive writing in the schools, but many young people now don’t know something as basic as how to sign their own names. Why aren’t you parents out there teaching your own kids those things? No wonder we have “law professors” who are mainly just ignorant clowns who are looked upon as the greatest thing since wholesome sliced bread, or are just brainwashed shills for the State.

Ron Paul on Trump Sending More Troops to Middle East for More War

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss Donald Trump’s latest warmongering blunder, Trump’s possibly sending 14,000 more troops to the Middle East to, as John McCain would say, “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran,” etc., etc.

On the RonPaulLibertyReport YouTube page, it notes: “So much for getting out of endless wars! President Trump has announced that he is sending 14,000 more US troops to the Middle East and may even send more. The reason is the manufactured ‘Iran threat’ that Trump continues to delude himself over. Neocons are thrilled. So are Saudi Arabia and Israel, who would love nothing more than to have the US fight and die in their wars. But what about America first?”

Dr. Paul asked, Where are the Constitutionalists? (As Laurence Vance points out in an article today, they hardly exist. He cites “The Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution.” And, as he writes, “There are fifty-three Republicans in the Senate. The average Republican score is only 31.75 percent. Twenty-three Republicans senators scored 20 percent or lower, including three who received a zero. Aside from the two Republican senators who scored a perfect 100 percent, only 5 of them scored above 50 percent.”)

Donald Trump Just Like His Creepy Warmonger Predecessors

Jacob Hornberger has a good post at his campaign website on Donald Trump, interventionist. Trump hasn’t ended the “forever wars,” hasn’t brought the troops home, and has gone on a secret trip to Afghanistan, returning quickly out of fear for his safety yet leaving the U.S. troops there in Afghanistan for no good reason. Trump is just like all his predecessors, the previous war criminals.

Shocker: BureaucRATS and Their Media Mouthpieces and Scribblers Are Not Our Friends

It appears as though House Democrats are rethinking their strategy to remove Donald Trump from the White House. They may still be writing articles of impeachment, but they have no case against him with the “controversial” phone call with the Ukrainian president, just as they had no case in Russia-Russia-Russia.

I have never seen such a mass of hysterical activists in their hatred of one guy. Many of these people in Warshington need some kind of counseling. They are deranged. But then, on the other side we have the flag worshipers and military worshipers who agree with acquitting or pardoning murderers and war criminals. Oh, well.

Anyway, during this whole impeachment farce that’s been going on since before Trump was even elected, the “news” media have led the charge in their lying and propaganda, and their corruption. We already know how dishonest many in the moonstream media were in their trying to help Obama get elected in 2008, and in their trying to help Hillary Rotten Clinton in 2016.

Just this week I heard on Sean Hannity’s radio show, which at times is like fingernails against the chalkboard, Mark Simone being interviewed along with Joe Unconcha. Simone noted how corrupt the “news” media are now, and he named Chuck Toady but didn’t want to mention other names. (That’s me referring to “Toady,” not Simone.) And that’s right. Chuck Toady is extremely corrupt and dishonest, especially in the way he words some of his questions for Trump supporters on the Sunday blab show (which I hear on Bloomberg Radio, because I stopped watching TV 25 years ago — no surprise there). And I have heard George Snuffleupagus do this as well. They persist on asking the same question over and over, questions that are a part of an ongoing false narrative they seem to want to reinforce in the minds of the viewing sheeple.

The propaganda media along with the politicians and activists whose main priorities are abortion, race and identity politics, have gone off the deep end, if that’s possible. During Iran-Contra Ronald Raygun would refer to the Press as the “sharks” coming after him shouting questions, but during all the 1990s Bubba Clinton investigations like Whitewasher Bubba had his defenders in the media. Now we have CNN the Most Untrusted Name in “News” with Unreliable Sources host Brian Helter-Stelter calling Trump supporters a “cult.” Are you serious? Well, many of the Trumpies really do behave in a cultish way, with the flag worship and all, but with the zombies on the left there is no comparison. We have the abortion cult, the race cult, and LGBT cult. Speaking of the LGBT cult, some people are wondering if Mayor Pete Bada-Bing (Bada-Boom) is going to be the first gay President, but we already had one. Oh, well.

And now we hear from leaks and drips that the Horowitz IG report is going to whitewash FBI spying on the Trump campaign? And it looks like AG Barr is also engaged in whitewashing, just as he’s whitewashing the Jeffrey Epstein suicide “conspiracy theories,” and on and on. Lather, rinse, repeat. And will we ever know whether it’s only a conspiracy theory that FBI and CIA are a pedophile cult? If so, maybe that’s why the cover-ups. What a bunch of sickos. Especially many in the “news” media as well. As Lew Rockwell said to a New York Slimes reporter intruding on the Mises Institute, these scribblers for State press releases are a part of the Regime. And as former CIA officer John Kiriakou wrote just recently, the mainstream media who shield FBI malfeasance are our enemy. That’s not good, in a “Constitutional Republic.” (Or perhaps it’s more of a rethuglic. “A rethuglic, if you can keep it,” as Ben franklin might say.)

So, everything we already know up to now is really a “conspiracy theory.” Go figure. The government life-long parasites, Barr, Horowitz, Durham, et al. are apparatchiks, no different from Soviet Schiff! They are the swamp, and it appears there will be no draining, people. I hope that turns out to be incorrect, of course.

Abolish Government Schools

It is usually informative to hear Sean Hannity and others on the radio with the other side of the story that the mainstream media won’t give us, especially in the Democrats’ and national security state’s crusade to get rid of Donald Trump. But these same talk radio sheeple love the national security state, They love police and military, and armed and uniformed goons.They are authoritarians and believe in “America First” and not Freedom First, in my view. So if the political parties were in the reverse, I don’t believe they would be telling us about FISA abuses and so forth. And the conservatives, by the way, LOVE the government schools.

Anyway, it looks like the Democrats are going to “impeach” Donald Trump, and for made-up things promoted by all the invited guests, those career government parasites at the hearings. But the Democrats will not be impeaching Trump for his continuing to authorize drone strikes that do nothing but kill innocent civilians overseas or his criminally keeping Gitmo open, etc. Nope. Democrats don’t care about those things.

The Democrats don’t care about civil liberties or due process, as we have seen from their Mueller fiasco and this impeachment farce. And they don’t care about freedom of speech either. No, they care about someone saying or tweeting rude or obnoxious things, and they are obsessed with abortion.

And the apparatchiks of the national security state want to get rid of Trump because he refuses to be their puppet (or he’s trying not to be).

And they all know that whoever their nominee is in 2020, s/he will not beat The Donald. In theory, it would be easier to beat Mike Pence, but the Democrats’ and spooks’ 3-year-long crusade of political harassment and abusing the legal and legislative process will fail anyway.

What’s really disappointing on a daily basis is hearing all these “news” deliverers and “analysts” in the media, their repeating what the impeachment hearing witnesses are saying, that Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President was a “quid pro quo,” despite the law requiring Trump to make sure corruption in a foreign aid recipient country is being addressed before receiving the aid, and despite the corruption with Joe Biden and Junior Biden.

The “news” media continuously call the stuff about the Bidens, Ukraine and the 2016 election “debunked conspiracy theories” like those media buffoons are programmed robots. So many people in the media do not think or act independently, they do little or no actual investigative research, and/or are just plain dumb people. Although there are some who aren’t so dumb, and they have seen plenty of actual information that refutes the official narrative, but they obediently and dishonestly carry on the Hate-Trump Crusade.

I think that most of those in the media repeating the official narrative are doing so out of laziness, obedience to authority, and because they have been brainwashed by their upbringings and government schooling to take the word of officials with a (D) after their name.

And I am not a Trump supporter as regular readers (if any still exist) know. If you are disillusioned with Democrats now but don’t like the Rethuglicans, you might consider supporting Jacob Hornberger in 2020. Just thought I’d throw that in there.

Now, what else has been in the news? The American Psychological Association style guide now endorses or requires using “they” as a replacement for he, him, she, her, etc., as a singular pronoun, according to the College Fix, even though “they” is a plural pronoun. The reason for this idiocy is to be more “inclusive” and “affirming,” and for authors to “avoid perpetuating prejudicial beliefs or demeaning attitudes in their writing.”

Harvard University was one of the first places of higher “education” to implement these changes, regardless of the likelihood that an “educational” institution’s use of incorrect grammar will cause such writers or speakers to leave a less literate impression on others. So, not good for job-seekers, in my view.

Maybe this is a part of the larger contributor to why so many people in the “news” media are themselves illiterate and why they believe everything that government bureaucrats tell them, no?

You see, there really are people who are so brainwashed now that they believe using “he” or “she” in writing is “demeaning” or “non-inclusive.” Most of the people who believe those things are the same kinds of people as described above, Democrats, who also don’t believe in freedom of speech and due process. And I thought Rethugs were bad.

Using “they” as a singular pronoun is bad because it is incorrect grammar. If people really are offended by it, then they, including those members of the American Psychological Association, need some kind of counseling. Talk about extremely insecure, neurotic sheeple! (And the American Psychiatric Association as well! They’re sick dudes, in my view.)

There’s a whole Wikipedia page devoted to “Singular they.” Doh!

Speaking of the formerly first-rate Harvard, another article by the College Fix tells us about Harvard hosting “Anal Sex 101” and “Oral Sex 101” workshops.

This sex obsession and perversion in our society is another contributor to the decline in literacy and thinking abilities in Harvard professors and their students, and among people in the “news” media, and escapees from the government schools.

According the the College Fix, “On-campus sponsors include Queer Students and Allies, Harvard College Women’s Center, Office of BGLTQ Student Life, Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, Harvard College Reproductive Justice Action and several other campus groups.”

“Reproductive Justice Action”? What is “reproductive justice”? (Making sure that Roe v Wade isn’t overturned? Killing their offspring as a “rite of passage” is these deranged SJW’s main purpose in life!)

The article quotes Mary Eberstadt, author of Primal Screams: How the Sexual Revolution Created Identity Politics: “It’s especially ironic that Sex Week gets Harvard’s imprimatur even as some of the men of #MeToo are appearing in courts. Sex Week promotes the same deformed view of the human person that led such men to harassment and assault in the first place: one dominated by pornographic narratives according to which human beings are always and everywhere available for any sexual permutation, no matter how problematic to their psyches or inimical to their health.”

We live in a perverted, sick society now. Can we reverse this? This is giving me a headache, quite frankly.

What else is in the news? Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to Salvation Army and other Christian-oriented charities. Obviously because of the loud screaming by the LGBT activists, who call the restaurant’s products “hate chicken.”

I think that “social justice” activists have decided to redefine the word “hate,” just as they are mangling singular and plural pronouns. And they have no clue as to what “quid pro quo” really means!

The Christian haters claim to be “anti-hate”? I. Don’t. Think. So.

I think that many of the LGBT activists are brainwashed. There’s no other explanation why they act this way. The same goes for the people in CONgress wasting time and money on a farce impeachment. They are brainwashed apparatchiks. Thanks to government schools.

And talk about totalitarian-minded fascists, these activists. Now we have LGBT activists demanding that others accept and “affirm” their ways of life! Others must accept the lunacy of transgender or multi-genders, or else the activists will make sure you get fired from your job, that you are deplatformed, that you are dropped from your credit card company, etc. They mean business, these activists.

Worse, the government schools are now requiring that little kids become activists for the government teachers and bureaucrats’ social causes, including the kooky ones noted above. According to Town Hall, 3rd graders will learn “how we can be agents of communal, social, political, and environmental change.” But don’t learn math, because that’s racist.

Abolishing government schools is really the only answer to all this crap, from the political ills to the social ills. That means no more local school committees, no more local superintendents of schools, no more crazy government-imposed curricula. Yes, this privatization and de-monopolization of education is necessary.

Unfortunately, the conservatives love government schools as a means to force their own repressive and authoritarian social agenda down the throats of kids. And unless the conservatives change their tune in their sheepish acceptance of government schools, then I think the leftists really will win.

The Late TV Host John McLaughlin in 1970s Interviews on Nixon Impeachment

There really are some similarities between Richard Nixon’s impeachment situation and Donald Trump’s impeachment situation now, in my view.

With Nixon what I would call the entrapment scheme included CIA breaking into DNC offices, etc., and then E. Howard Hunt getting Nixon to attempt to cover up the whole thing. I believe it was a pre-planned scheme concocted by national security apparatchiks and not really of Nixon’s own doing. Why would the national security state do this? They were clearly motivated by Nixon’s talks and detente with Russia and China, much like what Trump has been trying to do now with Russia and other foreign regimes.

Because Nixon’s attempts to relax the Cold War threatened the government parasite gravy train in Washington, the national security apparatchiks wanted to get rid of Nixon. Assassinating him was obviously not good given that they knocked off a previous President, Kennedy, who had tried to have talks with Russia and push for peace. There were many skeptics of the Warren Commission’s attempt to whitewash the truth. Such an assassination being by a “lone nut” has not been believed by the non-gullible.

Currently we have national security state operatives, a.k.a. “deep state” (although it’s not so deep now, is it?) who didn’t like Trump openly criticizing the FBI’s mishandling of terrorism and 9/11 or their inability to prevent 9/11, as well as Trump’s criticism of the Iraq war.

So the national security state actively and illegally used FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and the Trump White House flunkies, they made up a fake dossier to frame The Donald, hired a special counsel to go on a fishing expedition for further framing, which nonetheless exonerated Trump. And now they are doing impeachment hearings based on one phone call, whereas they can easily take ANY phone call between Obama or Bush and others and make something up to criminalize such phone calls.

During the 1970s Jerry Williams interviewed the late TV news host John McLaughlin several times. Here are two of those interviews, in which they discuss the Nixon impeachment hearings. McLaughlin was severely defensive of Nixon, and Jerry Williams was someone who hated Nixon like you wouldn’t believe. Hearing these interviews, I am amazed by Jerry’s ability to bite his tongue and remain objective.

For those who don’t know, Jerry Williams was a talk radio personality from the 1950s to the 1990s, heard mainly in Boston on WMEX, WBZ and WRKO, and in Chicago on WBBM, and was one of my favorites on talk radio during the 1980s.

The first video is from November of 1973. At that time McLaughlin was known as Father John McLaughlin, when McLaughlin was still an active Catholic priest while working for the Nixon administration.

In this first interview, one of the callers was giving McLaughlin the third degree regarding what “mistake” Richard Nixon had made that McLaughlin was referring to, for example was it the Watergate break in? and so forth. There was a tense back and forth between McLaughlin and the caller that we rarely hear now on talk radio.

McLaughlin also discusses some aspects of the Nixon impeachment hearings that have some similarities to what we’ve been hearing in today’s news regarding Trump.

In the 2nd video, the page says it is from March of 1974, but the graphics on the beginning of the video have the date of July 1973. It’s 1974 because at one point Jerry Williams read from a newspaper column he said was from 2/27/1974. At the end of the video was the station’s on-the-hour newscast that included mention of Harold Wilson officially becoming British Prime Minister which was March 4, 1974.

Toward the beginning of the 2nd video, Fr. McLaughlin and Jerry Williams talk about McLaughlin’s “two hats,” his hat as a priest and his separate hat as a hack assistant to the President, Richard M. Nixon.

Obviously, the point of view that I expressed above regarding the national security state’s taking down Nixon is not expressed by either of these two on the radio. Even Nixon himself believed that he shouldn’t have stupidly covered up the Watergate break-in crimes of CIA, but I now see it all as planned out by them in order to ensnare Nixon toward impeachment or resignation. Gerald Ford, by the way, was a “deep stater” if there ever was one.
