Coronavirus Hysteria: Is Military Martial Law Coming to Amerika?

Donald Trump is now showing his true FDR-Hitlerian fascist self, with his now wanting to order private companies to have to produce certain things they normally don’t produce, in Trump’s declaring that he is now a “Wartime President” with fake news coronavirus COVID-19 hysteria.

And this after Trump’s many statements comparing coronavirus to the flu, which really is the case, and downplaying its seriousness.

Yes, it IS serious, but mainly for elderly people and those with other serious illnesses, especially for those with respiratory issues. And it is serious for those who have compromised respiratory systems, such as smokers. THOSE are the ones who should practice “social distancing,” and “sheltering in place,” not the rest of us!

Trump’s 180-degree turn to more idiocy and irrationality means he probably has been psy-opped by the power-hungry apparatchiks he has surrounding him, from the generals to the CDC propagandists.

This is a power grab for government medical “experts,” and government bureaucrats, too many of which are pervading and slithering in Washington and in the state governments all over Amerika.

Governors ordering schools closed, restaurants closed down and other businesses closing, and some mayors such as the mayor of San Fransicko ordering “shelter-in-place,” i.e. unlawfully imprisoning residents of a whole city!

And it’s all based on media over-hyping and inciting panic. Many lazy and ignorant local news media stenographers rely on the national news media and the New York Slimes and the Washington Pest, who get their “information” i.e. propaganda from bureaucrats and then regurgitate it all without question.

I noticed that many of those media propaganda-disseminators are either ignorantly or intentionally not reiterating that most of the people who get COVID-19 will experience “mild” symptoms and most will not need to be hospitalized. The media’s omitting important parts of the story, parts of the story that will calm people’s nerves about this flu-like illness, is causing or inciting hysteria and panic, and the sheeple hoarding toilet paper!

People are swarming to the hospitals because they have symptoms even though they probably don’t have the coronavirus. The hospitals are now being overrun by people with colds and flu, and/or hypochondriacs who have been scared sh*tless by the media panic-inciters.

And so what if they do have coronavirus? Most of them will be home sick like they have the flu! Most of the people, anyway. This panic is totally unwarranted!

Oh, the problem, we are told, is that people can be “carriers” of the virus and not know it. Well, that is the same situation with many colds and flu that are constantly going around all year! 10-20,000 people per year are dying of the flu, but we are not panicking over that. Someone who is a carrier of the common flu virus might be visiting Grandma and giving her the flu, which she may not survive because of age and/or other medical conditions that compromise her immune system. We’re not hysterical about that, are we?

So, this whole thing with the markets crashing out of panic is CRAZINESS! And that’s another thing. The newscasters are constantly referring to the fascist orders by governors and mayors, the markets crashing and other issues are due to “the virus,” which is NOT correct! Those problems are happening as consequences of the PANIC associated with the virus! It is the panic that is causing all these problems!

I’ve heard on some talk shows on the radio that various people on social media are showing delight in the panic, and showing glee in the markets crashing, like oh maybe now we can ensure that Donald Trump will not get reelected. If that’s true, those are really sick people.

After the “Russia-collusions” witch hunt didn’t work, and then the impeachment didn’t work, let’s try scaring the population to fear a flu virus and causing the markets to crash. Hooray! They’ve accomplished crashing the stock market and reversing all the gains since Trump became President! Are people really showing glee and joy over that? Really?

Meanwhile, the rulers of the cities and states, and nationally fascist Trump, are delighting in all the new powers they will be grabbing. And anyone who challenges their edicts, and who questions the coronavirus propaganda crusade will be censored and maybe even arrested!

What will happen to those practicing civil disobedience and opening those restaurants anyway, those in San Franpsycho leaving their homes and going out and about anyway in defiance of the mayor’s Orwellian order to imprison them?

Here is Judge Andrew Napolitano on “Freedom in a Time of Madness” in his addressing the governors and mayors’ totalitarian impulses:

We all know how central economic planning diminishes freedom and adds to the cost of products. Now we know that central micromanagement of health care can kill people.

But these mayors and governors were not to be outdone by the feds in their totalitarian impulses. Many of them, particularly in the northeast and the west coast, have issued decrees that are as profoundly unconstitutional as Lincoln’s efforts to silence dissent.

The governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut have all issued decrees closing most retail establishments, particularly all restaurants, bars and theaters. The governor of New Jersey is threatening to ban all travel after dark. And, the mayor of New York City is threatening to ban all travel all the time.

The fulfillment of these totalitarian impulses has put more than 1 million folks out of work, closed thousands of businesses and impaired the fundamental rights of tens of millions of persons — all in violation of numerous sections of the Constitution.

The Contracts Clause of the Constitution prohibits the states from interfering with lawful contracts, such as leases and employment agreements. And the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the states from interfering with life, liberty or property without a trial at which the state must prove fault. The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment requires just compensation when the state meaningfully interferes with an owner’s chosen lawful use of his property.

Taken together, these clauses reveal the significant protections of private property in the Constitution itself. Add to this the threat of punishment that has accompanied these decrees and the fact that they are executive decrees, not legislation, and one can see the paramount rejection of basic democratic and constitutional principles in the minds and words and deeds of those who have perpetrated them.

Add to all this, the protection in the First Amendment of the right to associate and the judicially recognized right to travel — both of which are natural rights — and it is clear that these nanny state rules are unconstitutional, unlawful and unworthy of respect or compliance.

But wait, there’s more: Now it seems that the military has secret plans to take over the country if the coronavirus (really, the hysteria and panic, and markets crashing, mass unemployment and food shortages) cripples the government.

What? “cripple the government” in Warshington? But that’s a good thing! Decentralization is what this whole territory of America needs to restore our freedom and prosperity. Duh.

So, according to William Arkin, the former Washington Post reporter whose investigative reporting revealed Washington’s huge military-intelligence (sic) expansion post-9/11 (an extensive investigative report that I referenced here), the military really does have secret plans for “continuity of government” in case of disaster, invasion, a crippled DC (Yay!), or “everyone in the government being home sick from coronavirus,” and so on.

According to Arkin,

According to new documents and interviews with military experts, the various plans – codenamed Octagon, Freejack and Zodiac – are the underground laws to ensure government continuity. They are so secret that under these extraordinary plans, “devolution” could circumvent the normal Constitutional provisions for government succession, and military commanders could be placed in control around America.

“We’re in new territory,” says one senior officer, the entire post-9/11 paradigm of emergency planning thrown out the window. The officer jokes, in the kind of morbid humor characteristic of this slow-moving disaster, that America had better learn who Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy is.

He is the “combatant commander” for the United States and would in theory be in charge if Washington were eviscerated. That is, until a new civilian leader could be installed.

In my view, all this seems to be a pre-planned thing, and the crazed U.S. military bureaucrats have been wanting to take over for decades. Finally, a moron like Donald Trump gets into the White House, so easily manipulable and psy-oppable, the military bureaucrats have their gullible guy to propagandize and get him to forget about “draining the swamp” and instead “Make America Worse Again” with new, unconstitutional power grabs to even further militarize and Nazi Germany-ize the country, all for the sake of feeding their hunger for power and control.

And that is why we now have all this coronavirus COVID-19 hysteria and panic. And the politicians, including the “constitutionalists,” are eating it all up “For Our Own Good,” and the news media are nothing but useful idiots to promote Amerika’s “New Way of Life.” If you thought post-9/11 was something, post-coronavirus will be something else.

And finally, when the military does try to take over the country, that will be the constitutional definition of Treason. Not only will they be constitutional oath-violators, but their violating of the rights of the people will be acts of Treason, acts of war against their own people, goddamn virus or no virus.

Irrational Hoarding of Toilet Paper Comes from Media-Driven Panic

A lot of rational people are saying they are more fearful of the PANIC than they are of COVID-19 coronavirus itself. And I am in total agreement with that. The panic is sickening, and it is being driven by the idiots in the media, many of whom hate Donald Trump, and that is probably their main motivation to incite panic and elicit people to rush to Walmart to hoard toilet paper.

What is this obsession with toilet paper? COVID-19 is mainly a respiratory disease and it doesn’t really affect your digestive system or cause diarrhea or excessive number of BMs, supposedly. Is that what the panic-stricken sheeple are worried about out there?

“Fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath.” Those are the CDC’s official known symptoms of COVID-19. More severe cases involve the lungs being filled with excess fluid and people “drowning” that way. Those more severe cases are the ones who need the ICU.

But much of this panic is media driven, and based on political motivations. Some people are linking to a Rush Limbaugh episode last week in which he compares this epidemic to the 2009-2010 H1N1 “swine flu” epidemic. Limbaugh says, “60 million people infected, 300,000 hospitalized.” But where was the panic at that time? There wasn’t any panic. At least, I don’t remember any panic.

The difference is that OBAMA was President then, and the hated Trump is President now!

And some of the government and media’s panic-incitement is also to do with their exploiting the crisis to sneak in their little government programs like paid sick leave or whatever the CONgress just voted for. The bill supposedly is for “emergency” sick leave, but language in the bill shows that they are putting permanent changes in the law. That is why those 40 Republicans voted against the bill. Rep. Louis Gohmert explains the details.

Politicians of both major parties, which make up the one Big Government racket, love to exploit crises to insert their own pet legislation into emergency bills. They are criminals.

Related in some way: Tyler Curtis with a Mises Institute article on Bernie Sanders’s socialism vs. Donald Trump’s socialism. They are all criminals.

But the panic now is unnecessary, and it really is frightening, and we can blame the government-media complex for this, including Upchuck Todd a.k.a. Chuck Toady and George Snuffleupagus whose respective shows are on today.

And I’m not sure about the “social distancing” recommendation. It’s probably good for the more vulnerable people such as elderly and those with serious medical conditions or illnesses. But is it really necessary for everybody else?

Actually social isolation can cause people additional stress, and stress affects the immune system. Just some food for thought there.

I have heard that someone could be healthy and may even have contracted the COVID-19 coronavirus but isn’t experiencing any symptoms because his immune system is strong. But he could be a “carrier” and could give it to someone who is more vulnerable. But if someone is more vulnerable, then really it is that person who should be practicing “social distancing.”

And in that case, why doesn’t everyone just stay in and not go out and practice “social distancing” during the regular flu season, to protect the elderly and other vulnerable people from the flu which kills 10-12,000 Americans ever year?

No, we’re not going to do that. With the seasonal flu we are not going crazy, hysterical, hoarding toilet paper, and isolating ourselves out of fear and panic, are we? Nope.

At least 15 million people have gotten the flu this season, including my wonderful mother, who is over 80 and now she’s all better, as are my brother and sister-in-law, and my 82-year-old uncle, who also all had the flu this season. And they’re all good now. Yep.

Try to “chill,” everyone. Be careful, wash your hands, don’t touch your face if you have handled doorknobs and other publicly accessible objects. But there’s no reason to be HYSTERICAL about it!!

And then there are the fascist governors and mayors giving orders banning gatherings of “more than 250 people” and all that. That includes the “liberal” northeast states of Massachusetts and Connecticut with their fascist governors. And what about New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state? Will Gov. Chris Sunununu impose the same kind of fascist orders on the people of New Hampshire? I loathe and detest fascists. Especially Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Half-Baker.

But all the school closings, events being shut down, concerts canceled. The St. Patrick’s Day parades canceled and the Boston Marathon postponed. Is all that really necessary? Let’s end everyday life because a virus with a less-than-1% mortality rate is going around. I don’t remember seeing this kind of hysteria and panic with the Ebola scare of 2014. Or at any time in all my life. And I’m in my mid-50s, so, I’m no “spring chicken.” I thought I’d seen everything, but apparently not.

The unprofessional, politics-motivated media should be ashamed of themselves for inciting panic.

More Panic and Hysteria and Craziness Due to a Coronavirus!

I don’t have much time today. But I do have time to link to Jon Rappoport’s latest, not only on the hysteria and panic with COVID-19 smithcoronavirus, but the media/medical cartel’s shrieking PROPAGANDA with this crap!

Selling fear—the “epidemic experts” weigh in

These people are treating this virus like it’s Ebola! The real mortality rate among those who actually have the virus is between .01% and 1%. And yes, it really is like the flu. It is not Ebola! Most people who have it and who develop the disease will only experience mild symptoms! The people who need to stay away from crowds or be more self-protective are the elderly or those who already have serious illnesses and a compromised immune system. And anyone who has the symptoms and/or has tested positive should stay away from hospitals and nursing homes to protect those vulnerable people. Duh. No need for hysteria. No need to cancel anything. No need to quarantine people for no real reason.

I’m more afraid of government officials or “official” doctors trying to make me stay inside and not allow me to go out (or they’ll shoot me or something) than I am of the coronavirus itself.

People are literally crazy now. The retarded Mayor of Boston has canceled the St. Patrick’s Day parade for NO GOOD REASON! People look forward to that, bozo! What is wrong with people?

Rational Information Is Better Than Fear-Mongering Propaganda with Coronavirus

Government bureaucrats and media stenographers have been inciting panic and hysteria all over Amerika related to coronavirus COVID-19, and causing people to be frantically clearing out store shelves, like a disaster is approaching.

Meanwhile, the Dow is improving after last week’s crash of 3,500 points. But the media and corrupt government scum are causing this totally unnecessary panic.

Here is a good article at Cato, by Alan Reynolds. The Misleading Arithmetic of COVID-19 Death Rates

Some snips:

A Chinese study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, February 20, found a “case‐​fatality rate” of 2.3%, meaning 1,023 died out of 44,672 cases. But the total sample in that study (72,314) included an additional 27,642 non‐​confirmed cases, and simply including cases (let alone unreported minor cases) would have reduced the fatality rate to 1.4%. China‐​based estimates are largely confined to cases with the most severe symptoms, so it should be no surprise that the reported death rate among severe cases is much higher than it would be if the data also included “most people” who “have a mild disease and get better.” The risk of infecting more people is also more severe in China data, since severe cases are concentrated and transmitted in hospitals. This can also lead to overstated estimates of how many people are infected by someone with COVID-19, including the WHO “reproduction number” estimate of 1.4–2.5, which is mainly based on evidence from China.

It is worth noting that have also been 45,393 known recoveries from COVID-19 (compared to 3048 cumulative deaths) and, importantly, recoveries have been outnumbering new cases.

If the WHO estimate of 4351 confirmed cases amounted to 30% of the actual number infected outside of China at that time, for example, then the combined total of both unreported and confirmed cases would be 4351 divided by 0.30 or 14,503. In that case, the actual death rate would 67 divided by 14,503, or less than one half of one percent (0.46%). Also, such death rates in the recent past are likely to come down over time, because they happened before promising new clinical trials of antiviral drugs that proved effective against more deadly viruses such as SARS, HIV and Ebola.

Related to all this regarding the government and media’s irresponsible and shameful incitement of panic with the coronavirus COVID-19 (like it’s Ebola or something!), back in 2009 at the time of the hysterical H1N1 “swine flu” panic, I wrote,

In Massachusetts, a bill passed both houses of the legislature in response to H1N1 Flu pandemic hysteria, that will give “authorities” the power to, without warrant, forcibly enter private homes of people suspected of having that illness, and either force vaccinations or “quarantine” them if they refuse, or they would face heavy fines and/or imprisonment. I don’t know if Gov. Patrick has signed it or intends to. It depends on how pro- or anti-civil liberties he is.

It is interesting how people on the left and Democrats were in the past very pro-civil liberties and individual rights. I think that’s changed.

And, with any further government or Federal government control over the entire health and medical care system, the police state mentality and hysteria might very well increase.

And,

Is it really a good idea that the government mandate things like flu vaccines or H1N1 flu vaccines or any vaccines? No, it’s not a good idea. People have a right to choose what medications to take or what chemicals get injected in their bodies.

With the H1N1 flu this year and Federal and state governments’ overreactions, suggestions of martial law have been made, and these kind of threats of intrusions, along with the intrusions  health care fascists are threatening in the proposals for government medicine, is why we should be alarmed.

This news story here is about health care workers protesting mandatory H1N1 vaccines for lack of testing and/or reliability and safety, and also notes the overreaction of the government is similar to overreaction of the government in the past, such as in 1976 when more people were killed by swine flu vaccine than swine flu itself.

This news story is about studies questioning the effectiveness of the regular flu shot. And this article is about why the flu vaccine doesn’t really work.

Parents in New Jersey have been protesting the state’s mandating of flu vaccines for preschool children, and given how past government mandates of vaccines, such as that of HPV which caused deaths, as explained here by Karen De Coster, the parents have good reason to be angry.

First, people have a right to be left alone. They have a right to be presumed innocent, and presumed “in good health,” and otherwise left alone, especially by government. Sweeping mandates that affect everybody is not going to protect the public from any flu. ADVISING people of the best way to keep themselves healthy and to prevent colds, flu, H1N1 etc., is a good idea, but not forcing something on people, especially vaccines that have potentially dangerous chemicals that could be more harmful than the actual virus itself.

Hysteria and panic are emotions that can cause people to behave irrationally, and, given the irrationality of the Obama Administration in just about every policy it wants to force on us, as well as the Deval Patrick Administration in Massachusetts, we can do without it.

I can’t believe all but one of those links are still working after 10 years.

Some more articles I linked to at that time:

Alex Newman: Risks of the Swine Flu Vaccine

Paul Joseph Watson: New Study Finds Link Between Flu Shot, H1N1 Pandemic

***

And some recent articles that make very good points about all this:

Jon Rappoport on 5G and the China epidemic.

Gary Barnett has an article on the fear and panic that government and its media lapdogs are inciting with their coronavirus COVID-19 panic and hysteria.

And Bill Sardi has more information on that, and says it might not even be a “virus.”

An Unnecessary COVID-19 “State of Emergency” Based on Ignorance, Panic and Hysteria

The hysterical governor of Washington state Jay Inslee has issued a “state of emergency” in his state, because that is where the U.S.’s first death from coronavirus a.k.a. COVID-19 has occurred.

Never mind the fact that the victim was in his late 50s and was already battling other health problems. It is important to note that the virus is mainly severely affecting those with other illnesses.

Prior to this point, the hysterical news media have only been giving partial information on this coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. For the most part, they have not been mentioning that the virus will have a much worse effect on those with other medical conditions or diseases.

And when the newscasters are doing a story regarding coronavirus COVID-19 they do not mention the low mortality rate of generally 2%. That is important, and reminding the news consumers of those facts can help to ease tensions and fears.

But nooooo. So the media in general get an F- from me up to this point for their panic-incitement newscasts in their either ignorant or deliberate omission of certain aspects of this case. The media are a shameful bunch of lazy and ignorant morons and/or politically-motivated propagandists.

Up until now in most if not all newscasts, on my local radio or on national newscasts news anchors and reporters have not been mentioning China’s low mortality rate of coronavirus COVID-19 at roughly 2% to 3.8%, and lower in other areas. The rate is higher for elderly people, however.

And that compares to 15% for the SARS outbreak in 2003! But I don’t remember ANY of this kind of hysteria among government officials and the corrupt CDC in Washington or the news media at that time! So, why is it different now?

Not only that but a further explanation as to why the LOW mortality rate for coronavirus COVID-19 now includes the fact that it only affects mostly healthy people in the same way that the flu would affect them. Of course more vulnerable people like those with other medical conditions and the elderly may be affected worse. For example, for SARS back in 2003 the mortality rate for elderly people was about 50%.

And given that coronavirus COVID-19 affects especially the respiratory system, those who already have respiratory issues should definitely avoid going to China. China is much more polluted than the U.S., no?

And thus smokers are also in the high-risk category. Perhaps stopping smoking would be a good idea, which people should do anyway. Rush Limbaugh, with his “formerly nicotine stained fingers,” was a big smoker, which he gave up a few years ago. Although he still smokes cigars (I think) and now he has been diagnosed with lung cancer. So, if I were Rush Limbaugh, I would avoid going to China (and give up the cigars if he hasn’t already).

So anyway, this is NOT an “emergency,” Jay Inslee. Exactly one year ago today, that hysterical governor of Washington state Inslee had announced his run for the presidency, made his campaign’s single issue being “climate change” hysteria, but dropped out of the race already by August. So, hysterical climate change crusader Inslee is now an hysterical coronavirus COVID-19 panic-inciter.

And I see that Robert Wenzel has some commonsense and non-hysterical analysis on the current coronavirus scare. Try to calm down, people.

But the news media now are SO bad with this. Some of the conspiratorial radio talk show personalities including Rush Limbaugh have been suggesting that some people are exaggerating the actual severity of the outbreak to deliberately cause panic and affect the stock markets as we saw all last week.

The Dow dropped 3,500 points. Doh! If this economic downturn turns into recession or depression then it obviously could affect the 2020 presidential election (and I’m sure it’s already affecting people’s investments and pensions!).

So, are people really suggesting that the Trump-hating activists in the bureaucracy and the dinosaur news media really want a financial crash as a way to blame Trump for it and cause him to lose the election? Are they THAT obsessed with removing Trump?

But even with SARS in 2003, when the ultra-hated George W. Bush was President, I didn’t see any of this extreme, fanatical stuff. What we’re seeing now, especially if there’s any validity in the aforementioned conspiracy theory, is total pathological craziness.

You know, given how deranged many in the government and the media (redundant?) are now, and how ignorant they are, it would not surprise me. And we know just how irrationally fanatical they are in their hatred of Donald Trump, as they make stuff up and have been attempting to frame him and impeach him.

In fact, the CDC bureaucrat who has been inciting fear and panic in her dire warnings of disease and death throughout the U.S., “Dr.” Nancy Messonnier, is the sister of former deputy AG Rod Rosenstein(!), who was himself deeply involved in the FISA spying scandal and who wanted to be “wired up” in order to record Trump with the purpose of using the 25th Amendment to remove him from office! Can you believe this?

When I was in high school, I watched “Guiding Light” when I got home from school. No, really. I would sit down at the desk and do my homework while watching the “Guiding Light,” as I had to see what would happen next with the Bauers and Rita Stapleton. And I thought some of the stories were quite weird and far-fetched. But now we have this Trump-Russia obsession, “Russia meddling” (when it’s really the CIA meddling, duh), impeachment based on nothing, and now this coronavirus hype and panic incitement. You want to say, “You can’t make this stuff up,” but it makes “Guiding Light” look extremely reality-based and believable.

So, these people in the government in Warshington are real creeps, aren’t they? They’re just very bad people, in my view. And the creeps in China are just as bad, with their evil surveillance and social media “credit scores,” trying to “nudge” people into having or expressing the correct political views, and nudge them into obediently repeating praise of their government.

China sucks in may ways now. Polluted, coronavirus, social and political oppression. But sadly, the pinko commie Bernie Sanders wants to have his own China-like Politburo and rule over a government in Washington with complete economic and political control over the whole society. And I don’t think that CIA asset Mayor Pete Nuttynudge is that much different. These drooling power-hungry demagogues are madmen. But Trump, with his tribalist, anti-foreigner anti-immigrant collectivism, Trump is not that much different from the Chinese rulers. With all Trump’s controls over immigration, labor and employment, he himself is being the communist in claiming government ownership over the territory and the lives of the people. Freedom is a foreign concept to these psychopaths.

Now, regarding coronavirus COVID-19, people should do what, I hope, they already do to protect themselves from the flu or colds, washing their hands especially when getting home from being out, or when getting to work, and taking extra Vitamins D and C. Bill Sardi has this article in which he says he WANTS to get coronavirus COVID-19. But I think he is in his 70s now according to what I read in his past articles, so he might want to think twice about that. (Hmm, didn’t he even have an article telling about his recent heart attack? Not good.) Sardi says that, besides extra Vitamin D you should also take Zinc, which is very important for many reasons. And Sardi also says that getting a vaccine is NOT a good idea, which I agree with. And I will conclude by mentioning Bretigne Shaffer’s important article on the mainstream media propagandists smearing alternative and nutritional medicine and their promoting the very dangerous “Tamiflu.”

Who Would Want to Sabotage the 2020 U.S. Elections?

Certainly not Israel. Whitney Webb has a very lengthy article on the U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. government foreign policy apparatchiks giving dire warnings about how vulnerable this year’s elections are with no evidence, with such warnings unthinkingly parroted by the mainstream news media. However, at the same time Israel has a lot of connections to hacking and vulnerabilities, and for some reason intelligence (sic) hooligans seem to want to cause chaos in our elections in the name of further building up totalitarian government impositions.

Will the CIA, FBI and NSA Finally Be Abolished?

Today I heard on Bloomberg Radio the rebroadcast of some of Chuck Toady’s psy-ops on Meet the Repressed. It can’t be just propaganda with Toady, this would have to be a psy-op with his viewers. But does it matter? He is only preaching to the choir. He’s discussing the “alternative facts” and fake news stuff, even though Toady himself and George Snuffleupagus, the New York Slimes and the Washington Pest have been the ones disseminating fake news and propaganda. Today’s episode of Meet the Propaganda was so bad as far as propaganda is concerned, that is why I’m calling it outright psy-ops.

Meanwhile…

U.S. attorney John Durham continues his investigating and uncovering of CIA and DOJ/FBI attempts to influence the 2016 election and reverse the results. Durham is going after former CIA chief John Brennan.

However, some people are saying that the “conspiracy” involves many more people than just Brennan, Comey, Strzok and Page, Rosenstein, McCabe, Yates, and those who have been mentioned many times now. Some are saying that this whole thing goes back to 2012 or earlier. And that this may be the biggest scandal and cover-up in American history. Supposedly, no one has been sent to prison (although someone now has been sent to prison, for an email hacking “to protect Director Mueller”) associated with all this, despite all the evidence and documentation that has been presented for years now. The article linked at the beginning of this paragraph mentions how so many people had access to the NSA database, and that AG Barr might be another broomer just like the Mueller team (although at the Mueller testimony, we got a glimpse into senile Robert Mueller’s cluelessness as to the facts of his own investigation).

Just as I don’t believe we will ever know the whole truth about the Jeffrey Epstein story, we will probably not see any of the real truth of the Warshington Establishment’s shenanigans regarding the 2016 (and 2020) elections. Most Americans still don’t know the truth about the Kennedy assassination and 9/11, so it is doubtful any of this will be made public or that actual criminals involved will see prison time. And that’s the way it is, as CIA asset Walter Cronkite would say.

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?)

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 1968 Election Discussion with Jerry Williams on WBZ

While working on the post with the two interviews of John McLaughlin by my favorite talk radio personality Jerry Williams, I also came across more YouTube videos of Jerry on the radio. They don’t make talk radio like they used to.

Rush Limbaugh keeps saying that it all began with his show, talk radio, during the 1980s. But there were several other talk radio shows that existed before him, especially on the clear channel 50,000 watt stations such as WBZ in Boston that can be heard in supposedly 38 states, and WOR in New York.

Not only that, but there were several talk radio programs before the 1980s that were intelligent and diverse, and which featured two-way discussions between host and guests and between host and callers. Most of talk radio now, in contrast, consists of the host going on and on and on and on, and when they do take callers it’s mainly an echo chamber. It’s mostly not a discussion consisting of diverse points of view, merely mutual agreements.

Jerry Williams (1923-2003) was a talk radio personality who discussed controversial political and social issues throughout his career from 1957 to 1998. He was mainly on WRKO, WBZ, and WMEX in Boston, and WBBM in Chicago, as well as a few other stations.

In his shows during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, Jerry Williams was himself very articulate with the issues as well as being a talented humorist and he knew how to tease callers to elicit emotional responses from them. And he was not afraid to confront those in power and call out the corrupt including police. I didn’t agree with him on everything, but it sure was good to hear him.

While the old Jerry Williams tribute site seems to be gone probably because the website owner decided to not renew it, I have found some new YouTube videos featuring Jerry on WBZ and WBBM.

But we don’t really hear that kind of back and forth any more. Now it’s all echo chamber on talk radio, in the same way the mainstream news shows, such as Meet the Press with Chuck Toady and Fake the Nation on CBS, have their own echo chambers on the other side of the political spectrum.

So in this video that I have found, Jerry Williams on WBZ hosts a live forum at the time of the 1968 Presidential election, with guests including columnist Jack Anderson, White House correspondent Sid Davis, and a WBZ newscaster. They discuss polls, whether or not polling is biased, the campaigns of Nixon, Humphrey and George Wallace and the people who support those candidates. They do discuss actual issues as well, although they don’t even refer to the Vietnam War until at least 45 or 50 minutes into the discussion.

I knew about the 1968 Democrat convention and all the protests, but toward the end of the discussion one of the panelists mentioned that the Republican convention in Miami also had protests and rioting that resulted in 6 deaths. Now, I can’t find any verification of that online, so maybe that guy is wrong about it. It might have been Jack Anderson who mentioned that, I’m not sure.

Some people may not find this hour-long discussion of interest, but I am sure that history buffs will.
