No, Iran Is Not an “Existential Threat” to Israel

Scott Horton of Antiwar.com has this article asking, Iraq War IV? and gives a lot of the history of U.S. government and military/CIA aggressions in the Middle East, and includes a lot of summary and analysis of events including over the past two years. He mentions the neocons and their roles in war-planning, and the evil Bush Presidents.

But, as some commenters note, he doesn’t really give much attention to Israel and its influence on U.S. foreign policy especially in Middle East.

The late Justin Raimondo, co-founder of Antiwar.com, had a 3-part series in 2012 on the roots of the Iranian “crisis,” and in Part 2, he states “It’s all about Israel.” Oh, is it, really? Do the Israelis have that much control over U.S. foreign policy? And if so, why? Raimondo also has written about the Israel angle of the 9/11 story, in this 2010 column.

The Israelis have been wanting to bomb Iran for decades, but really they have wanted the U.S. government to do it for them. Bibi Rebozo Bibi Nutty-Yahoo Bibi Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have been saying for many years that Iran is an “existential threat” to Israel. Yet, as the writers at Antiwar.com have pointed out many times, there are no facts to back that up. Israel has the strongest military in that whole region, and they have a hundred or 200 nukes.

But the conservatives in America, especially the talk radio crowd, seem to believe every word of the propaganda that Nutty-Yahoo and his U.S. slobberers disseminate. And yes, they are slobbering over the Israeli leader. Just watch his speeches before Congress, in which the obedient slaves cheer on just about every sentence he utters. They act that way because they are cowards and afraid of looking like they are anti-Semites if they don’t give him a standing ovation for his every word. Yet, like them, he is a buffoonish bureaucrat, and that can be better understood by seeing this.

As I mentioned recently, much of the Israeli influence on U.S. foreign policy, besides the Israeli bureaucrats themselves, comes from the Christian Zionists, who “love Israel” and “the Jews,” because they are True Believers in the Bible and Biblical scriptures. They believe in the “End Times” and the “Rapture,” and that “the Jews” will convert to a belief in Jesus as THE Lord and Savior in order to be “saved” when the “End Times” arrive. In fact, Justin Raimondo elaborated on that very aspect of all this in this article on the Israeli “Amen Corner.” And some of the Christian Zionist Bible-thumpers are real nutsos in their wanting to make the “End Times” happen if you know what I mean. It is possible that George W. Bush, our Secretary of Belligerence Mike Pompeo, and our current vice president Mike Pence may be three of those nutsos. I hope not. But then, George W. Bush did start the 2nd war on Iraq after 9/11, a group of terrorist attacks that wouldn’t have happened had Bush’s evil father, George H.W. Bush, not started the first war on Iraq in 1991.

But the Israel angle of the obsession with Iran isn’t the only reason why U.S. bureaucrats and military have been invading, bombing, murdering and occupying in the Middle East. There are also the oil and other natural resources. But the U.S. has plenty of oil. No need to get involved in that Middle Eastern region for oil. There is also this obsession with Israel and the Middle east for “geopolitical, strategic” purposes, i.e. the compulsive need of some career government parasites to have control over not only their fellow people but over people in foreign lands. But I think that, deep down, the politicians such as U.S. Presidents just like to bomb and destroy whole parts of the world, because they are psychopaths. The Iran stuff specifically, however, is mainly all about Israel. The Biblical True Believers believe in an expanded Greater Israel, and they will do what they think they have to to get their Greater Israel.

Why Do You Believe the Government’s Lies in Its Craving for More War?

Ron Paul explains why he doesn’t trust Trump on Iran. Because the bureaucrats and neocons in Warshington have been giving us nothing but lies in the past many years now to justify their aggressions overseas.

Caitlin Johnstone explains how the bureaucrats and neocons have been lying constantly, but that the American sheeple continuously swallow the lies, hook, line and sinker, and points to several other articles debunking Trump’s claims about Iranian general Soleimani.

Whitney Webb says that a dubious official story masks the true motives behind the Soleimani assassination.

And finally, Robert Wenzel explains Tulsi Gabbard’s dilemma regarding her fellow military personnel possibly being sent to the Middle East for no good reason.

The Bloodthirsty War Criminals in Warshington Are Obsessed with Iran

Moon of Alabama says that the U.S. will come to regret the Trump administration’s assassination of Qassim Soleimani. Eric Margolis says that faux tough guy Trump reinforces America’s image as “Murder, Inc.”, but has “boosted his standing with Republican/Evangelical voters” (and Israel). Patrick Cockburn says the assassination was an “act of escalation by President Donald Trump that ensures that Iraq faces a violent future.”

And David Stockman says, “the US military-industrial complex’s greed and appetite for power and pelf is so voracious that it will embrace any and all missions anywhere on the planet – no matter how stupid or futile or immoral, as per the case of 19-years in Afghanistan – that keep the budgetary loot flowing.

“Accordingly, the Washington apparatus conspires to keep the 35 Mideast bases in place and to trigger actions like last night’s insane assassination of Iran’s foremost military leader in order to reify the threat and to periodically stoke tensions and counterattacks that keep missions alive and the forces deployed.”

Well, I am sure that the military contractors (a.k.a. the “Merchants of Death”) love the profits they rake in from all the death and destruction their products cause. And of course there’s that military-news media-propaganda revolving door, with all the high-up military bureaucrats or retired bureaucrats making their appearances on MSNBC, CNN, etc.

But I think that the lunatics in the CIA have psy-opped the easily malleable Donald Trump to turn him from wanting to “end the endless wars” into being a mindless neocon robot thug suffering from short-sightedness and not able to see the guaranteed blowback that will come about by his acts of aggression in foreign lands.

The CIA wants the blowback, to ensure more U.S. military aggressions overseas, to justify the continuing existence of an agency that never should have existed in the first place, and to justify the CIA’s always expanding budgets. Secretary of State Mike Bombpeo is a former CIA director, and a former member of the “House Constitution Caucus” that long ago became the House Constitution Carcass because the members endorse all the unconstitutional U.S. military wars and aggressions.

See Jon Basil Utley on Mike Pompeo’s Christian Zionist fanaticism and belief in “End Times,” and see the NYT: “The Rapture and the Real World: Mike Pompeo Blends Belief and Policy.”

These people are nuts. It’s an enmeshment of zealous religious fanaticism and power-mad bureaucrats. Not good. Warshington is literally insane.

And by the way, prior to these current conflicts that Trump is causing, Warshington had been inflicting sanctions on Iran, which in and of themselves are an act of war, a provocation by Obama-Trump against Iran.

Here is Congressman Ron Paul in 2012 arguing in opposition to sanctions on Iran:

And this anti-Iran crapola has been going on for decades now. When CIA goons imposed a coup on Iran in the 1950s, Operation Ajax, and then supported the prime minister’s replacement, the “Shah,” and his police state Savak, that obviously caused blowback and contributed to the radicalizing of many Iranians leading to the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the taking of American hostages in Iran.

Short-sighted CIA and other U.S. bureaucrats and “Regime Change” crusaders have resented Iran for the hostage taking ever since then, even though the U.S. bureaucrats themselves caused it. Because of their short-sightedness they could not see that the CIA’s own interventions in Iran for the 25 years previous to 1979 caused the blowback.

The same thing goes for Iraq. In 1991 the late President George H.W. Bush started a war of aggression by the U.S. military against Iraq, a country that was of NO threat to the United State. The neocon war criminal obviously could see that the Cold War was ending and there was no more threat by the U.S. government’s enemy the Soviet Union, which collapsed on its own weight. The neocons and U.S. government apparatchiks needed a new enemy to provoke and to justify higher “defense” budgets, more CIA power and control and a greater police state to keep their own fellow Americans in submission.

And that is why Bush Sr. started that war against Iraq, promoted with lies and propaganda, which included bombing and destroying civilian water and sewage treatment centers and electrical facilities, which caused the Iraqi people to have to use untreated water which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. This policy of war crimes and death and destruction was continued by President Bubba Clinton who continued the sanctions and no-fly zones on Iraq which prevented the shipments of needed medical supplies and construction materials to rebuild the water and sewage treatment centers that the evil Bush regime destroyed. This all occurred during the 10 years before 9/11, by the way.

 

But Trump already became a war criminal on his first day in office, in which he immediately authorized drone strikes, killing mainly innocent civilians. In just two months Trump escalated the drone strikes by 432% more than Obama’s drone strikes. See: U.S. airstrike kills family of eight, U.S. drone strike kills three civilians and four “suspects,” and Trump has killed beautiful babies in four countries. And after Trump’s assassination drone last week, he couldn’t wait to unleash more drone strikes that killed 6 medics as part of a medical convoy. Duh, Donald.

But after 3 years, Trump’s civilian death toll is in the thousands. War criminal. (But would the retards in Congress impeach Trump for that? Of course not. They are impeaching him for being nasty, for being rude and saying things they don’t like! That’s what morons we have in Congress! They are also impeaching him for wanting to “Drain the Swamp”! Which he is NOT doing, by the way. THEY and their cohorts in the bureaucracy would be drained!)

So, don’t believe anything these criminals in Warshington say, especially regarding their drooling for more wars! These wars are all based on lies. The bloodthirsty neocons and warmongers have been lying their way to war, propagandizing the people to support them. Don’t believe a word they are telling you. In fact, when the warmongers of Warshington do these things, just assume they are lying, and don’t support them.

But will the American people ever learn? I think not. People are extremely brainwashed with American Exceptionalism and all the Orwellian nonsense especially since 9/11, so I am not holding my breath. And will there be severe blowback from The Donald’s idiocy, like a cyber attack? (Is Trump getting bad advice from his CIA handlers to start a new war, because his swamp creatures want him to lose his reelection bid? Or is it possible that Trump is making bad moves now because he just doesn’t want to get reelected? Hmm.)

Actually, if there were a cyber attack, or another bombing like the Boston Marathon bombing, it would probably be the CIA causing it, as in false flag. Wouldn’t surprise me. They’re insane in Warshington. And that is what bureaucracy (.pdf) gives us.

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.

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:

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.
