In a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week in Washington, lawbreakers inquisitioned AG William Barr, especially the Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (Chinese phone books and all). The Democrat lawbreakers questioned Barr relentlessly, and would immediately interrupt him as he began his answers.
Those snotty little brats are really just apparatchiks and loyalists to “The Party” and to power, certainly not to the concepts of “question and answer,” honest discussion of the issues and open debate, and transparency in government.
And they certainly are not friends of freedom of speech, but the opposite of that: censorship. They so much do not want Barr to get his side of the story out there that they would prefer only their own views be heard, and no one else’s.
However, I couldn’t care less that they gave poor old William Barr a hard time, harassing him and humiliating him, because Barr is just another Swamp creature and police statist, drug warrior, national security state apparatchik. So to hell with him as far as I’m concerned.
And the same thing two years ago with Brett Kavanaugh, Barr’s fellow Swamp creature, rubber-stamper of the police state and the fascist drug war. With Kavanaugh I could hardly have cared less that the Democrat Politburo and “social justice” fabricators made stuff up and launched false accusations toward him.
Barr is no better. Besides his anti-immigration policies, Barr was a CIA goon for 4 years, and imposed policies of going into other countries to apprehend suspects in fascist drug laws that shouldn’t exist. Barr and his daughter the DOJ’s drug commissar Mary Daly believe that drug usage, production and sales are criminal matters. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the Rulers are criminals to them. (Unfortunately a lot of Amerikan fascists agree with them.)
Additionally, the Swamp creature police statist William Barr ia against reforming the criminal justice (sic) sentencing system. He wrote: “Our system of justice is not broken. Mandatory minimums and proactive law enforcement measures have caused a dramatic reduction in crime over the past 25 years, an achievement we cannot afford to give back.”
“Proactive law enforcement measures” means “Pre-Crime,” that is, when government bureaucrats attempt to predict that someone might commit some crime at some point. Perhaps we should call him Mr. Totalitarian?
In my view, all these people in Washington are loathsome Swamp creatures. They are not fans of property rights, the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution they were all sworn to protect and defend.
And regarding William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham’s alleged “investigation” of CIA-FBI-DOJ crusade to get Donald Trump including fake dossiers and illegal FISA spying abuses, I am not holding my breath. In the end, Swamp creatures stick up for each other, and sweep each other’s crimes under the rug. They then go on to attend the same cocktail parties, yacht cruises and bubble baths in Washington.
And do you think the current FBI director Chris Wray is going to help at all in the alleged “investigation”? After Way pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Mike Flynn case?
Anyway, as I’ve been saying for years, the best solution to “draining the Swamp” is decentralization. Dissolve the U.S. government completely. I very much recommend Lew Rockwell’s 30 Day Plan as the first and necessary step. And Murray Rothbard offered some tips on how and how not to desocialize.
We can start with 50 independent states (or “nation-states” if you prefer). This way the people have the power to “vote with their feet,” a power which sadly we do not have now. And when that is achieved the states can further decentralize themselves. No more government central planning, no more dysfunctional dependence on central planners for security.
In a separate House Committee hearing in Washington, lawbreakers questioned Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg. The Congressman with the squeaky teenage boy-sounding voice, Jim Jordan, brought up many examples of Fakebook and Twitter censoring conservatives, libertarians, vaccine skeptics and hydroxychloroquine-advocating doctors, and examples of Big Tech “de-platforming” social media users.
Besides their regular censoring and banning and shadow-banning, the Big Tech companies are censoring by way of “de-platforming” and getting financial institutions, payment services, credit card companies, etc. to cancel users’ accounts, depriving them of the monetary benefits of their social media platforms.
The Big Tech “social justice” warriors are getting serious in their promoting wacko myths and superstitions, anti-diversity of thought and their intolerance of alternative viewpoints that do not repeat the Establishment’s official narrative or do not follow Big Tech’s allegiance to Big Pharma’s poison profits.
But who exactly are these people who are making the decisions on censoring or not censoring others, and deciding what information is legitimate and what isn’t?
Mainly, they are millennials, brainwashed by 12 to 16 years of government school indoctrination and college “social justice” crusades, of wacky loony-tunes propaganda and gibberish that means nothing in the real world.
As I wrote here and as described in this Federalist article, the workers at Google, for example, blacklist and shun other employees who have expressed any views (or any slight indications of such views, like “microaggressions”) which go against their brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy mantras and slogans. They give “peer bonuses” to those other workers who enforce the rigid, intolerant conformity.
If you remember, former Google employee James Damore, who claimed that Google discriminates against white males and conservatives, had tried to sue Google for his firing. According to the lawsuit, Damore described Google as having “internal mailing lists catering to employees with alternative lifestyles, including furries, polygamy, transgenderism, and plurality, for the purpose of discussing sexual topics. The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google’s internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy…”
And, get this: “For instance, an employee who sexually identifies as ‘a yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin’ and ‘an expansive ornate building’ presented a talk entitled ‘Living as a Plural Being’ at an internal company event.”
As I wrote in my other post on that, “Loony-tunes much?”
The Damore-Google lawsuit also mentions Google’s internal memo with directions on “How to (Properly) Punch a Nazi,” in which it describes how to properly punch a Nazi, though it isn’t clear whether they give directions on how to determine whether someone actually is a Nazi. Some of the young, brainwashed snowflake nutjobs think it’s fine to just point someone out, such as at a demonstration or counter-demonstration, call him a “Nazi” and then attack him. The government-schooled ignoramuses do not understand due process and presumption of innocence, sadly.
And also according to the Federalist article, Google employees who do not conform to the brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy have a “psychotic break from reality.” (I think it’s the other way around, ya think?)
And at Facebook, according to CNBC, employees there had complained about a “cult-like” atmosphere within the Facebook culture. It supposedly is a culture of enforced feigned love for the Facebook leadership while at the same time employees are discouraged from expressing any dissenting thoughts from the leadership’s top-down edicts. it seemed to be all about obeying the commands from the top and shut up.
So we have the irrational kookiness with these “social justice”-obsessed Big Tech companies and their authoritarian, intolerant nature of how things are run in these places. And these are the ones who will determine what is “truth” or what are “facts” to be allowed and what is “fake news” or “harmful” and should be censored, removed or de-platformed. Is there a way to boycott and “de-platform” Google, Fakebook, Twitter and the rest of those schnooks?

Big League Politics reports on a new study finding that 75% of Americans believe that life in Amerika will never return to what used to be considered “normal” — or, back to pre-scamdemic times.
The survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll shows that the media-generated fear has resonated severely with the masses. 59 percent of respondents are too afraid to go back to their workplace with others, and 36 percent do not believe they will ever be able to return to a shared workspace without putting themselves or loved ones in danger. 63 percent believe their job will never be the same and anticipate working from home for at least the rest of the year.
Additionally, 75 percent feel that handshakes will no longer be customary in society due to the lasting fears from the pandemic. 41 percent hope for a contact-free workplace where hugs and physical contact are barred when they return. 38 percent want physical offices permanently removed and replaced with remote work on a lasting basis. 53 percent are nostalgic for the good old days when people weren’t forcibly masked while the rest have seemingly become accustomed to the new Orwellian normal.
You see what terrorists our governors, mayors, “public health” Mengeles and media propagandists are?
And those 75% polled are right. Things will not return to “normal.” Unless the bureaucrats in charge decide to undo their fascist orders and central-planning destruction of businesses and the whole country.
But, it looks like they are hellbent on keeping the charade and scam going.
Why are the governors and other bureaucrats so desperate to destroy our society? Like Gov. Charlie Baker that I mentioned the other day. These people are part of the anti-productivity crowd, just like the communists in academia and “Black Lives Matter” movement.
Most of the bureaucrats MUST know that the “virus” is only as serious in general as the seasonal flu. They MUST know that. (Although the retards among them might not know that, such as Cuomo and Duh Blasio for example. But we know that they are probably communists so they don’t care that they are destroying society.)
I keep going back and forth between calling all these horrible people fascists and communists. There’s not much difference, believe me.
And then we have those 150 “health professionals” who have written a letter to “America’s decision makers,” demanding that we not only not return to normal, but return to more lockdowns, a national lockdown in Amerika. They want more inaccurate testing and intrusive contact tracing stasi. Talk about fanatically anti-productivity. The “scientists” include the crazed nutjob Ezekiel Emanuel, the former Obama administration health policy flunky.
They are “health professionals”? Do they not know about the CDC and state “public health” ministers lying about the COVID death numbers? Do they not know about the 50%-plus false positives in the testing results, or that dishonest state bureaucrats have been ignoring negative test results and only reporting positive cases, or that “cases” used to mean people who had symptoms and tested positive for COVID but now “cases” means anyone who tested positive regardless of whether one has symptoms? They are not “health professionals” or “scientists,” they are either ignorant morons or politically motivated loony-tunes crackpot kooks and extremely dishonest and shady characters (like the aforementioned bureaucrats).
And this is all coinciding with the “Black Lives Matter” violence, arson, assaults, and looting that is being permitted, approved of and praised by all those city police chiefs, mayors, governors who obviously want to see society destroyed.
So, either we continue with the lockdowns, the masks that symbolize “Shut up and obey!” and the violence in the cities that will go into the suburbs, or we end ALL lockdowns, restrictions that are based on a lie and a scamdemic, and take off the masks so people can breathe again and get their necessary oxygen so their brains don’t continue to decay even further, and let everyone get back to normal immediately. Resume ALL sporting events with full stadium spectator capacity, resume symphony concerts and other musical venues, and if people feel uncomfortable going to those things, then DON’T GO!
And let people defend themselves and their property from the criminal thugs, marauders, brutes, arsonists and murders (the city street rioters as well as those evil government bureaucrats).
If we don’t undo immediately ALL the Twilight Zone fascist policies that are destroying society, it will be completely destroyed, it’s happening before our very eyes. It’s not just becoming a communist dictatorship with state-worship fanatical crusades that accompany communist takeovers, but it’s going to be a society of total chaos, violence and bloodshed. Just like pre-Enlightenment times, and just like the 20th Century.
It is the “Dark Ages” that these monsters — from governors and “public health” bureaucrats to the other terrorists — seem to want.

If you really believe the COVID-1984 propaganda from mainstream news media, then you really ought to turn it off. Social media, radio, especially TV. Please turn off the TV.
The latest hysteria policy imposed by a fascist governor is Marxachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker now ordering incoming travelers to have to fill out an intrusive form and then quarantine themselves for two weeks! You vill obey orders, or pay $500 fine each day you violate orders!
People need to tell this fascist knucklehead, “F you, you moron!” These fascists need to be taken to court. Why aren’t people suing these idiots?!
Enough of the hysteria and panic.
So, you already heard this a million times. Most people who have the COVID virus will have no symptoms or just mild, “flu-like” symptoms and they survive. The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 is about .1%, so it’s right there with the seasonal influenza. If you get the virus, you have a 99.9% chance of survival.
For most people it is just like the flu — so it doesn’t matter if we “slow the spread,” or “flatten the curve,” and it doesn’t matter whether people wear those ineffective and possibly harmful masks or do this Twilight Zonish “social distancing” crap!
And local districts are hiring “social distancing” police and mask stasi now? To make sure their neighbors are wearing the mask, or wearing it properly? “F you,” I say. “Get the hell away from me, you Nazi!” And yes, they are Nazis when you get right down to it.
The masks symbolize how the governing class and “social justice” cult are trying to shut everybody else up, those with whom they disagree. For the Rulers and their obedient cultists the masks are your baby pacifier. Shut up, slave, they own you. Don’t talk back. Don’t question their narrative. No dissent!
But I digress. Back to the scamdemic. (And by the way, note how “pandemic” is “panic” with “Dem” in the middle? Heh.)
Anyway, COVID-19 is only a threat to a very small fraction of the population. This whole panic, fascism and shutting down the entire society has only been counter-productive.
So, why all the fear-mongering and propaganda on mainstream news?
COVID is killing mainly elderly people in nursing homes who are already battling very serious illnesses or have serious conditions, like heart disease, kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Or non-elderly people with those very serious illnesses or conditions. But mainly the people dying of COVID-19 are in their 70s, 80s, and 90s.
So COVID is killing the same groups of people that the flu kills each flu season. Tens of thousands of people die of seasonal influenza each flu season in the U.S.
In the U.S., the 2014-2015 flu season killed 51,000 people, the 2012-2013 flu season killed 43,000, and the 2017-2018 flu season killed 61,000, according to the CDC.
Hmm, supposedly the CDC said on April 4 that “24,000-62,000” people have died during the 2019-2020 flu season, but because of COVID-19 the “estimates may partly reflect increases in testing in recent weeks and may be adjusted downward once the season is complete…”
In other words they have been infiltrating the 2019-2020 flu death numbers with the COVID death numbers to deliberately inflate the COVID death numbers.
That’s in addition to the CDC changing its guidelines to include non-COVID deaths such as gunshot deaths, motorcycle deaths and deaths by other causes such as heart attack, in their “COVID deaths” numbers. In other words, the CDC and all their “public health” commissars in the various states are lying about the lethality of COVID.
So, given the relatively equal death rates and seriousness of COVID-19 and seasonal flu, why don’t the news outlets give constant updates on all the flu cases, all the positive flu test results and flu deaths? Why haven’t the governors and mayors been giving daily briefings for the flu each flu season?
It’s a rhetorical question. The answer is because they’re full of sh*t, that’s why.
And these rulers and “public health” bureaucrats have been making things worse by ordering nursing homes to have to take in COVID-infected patients who then spread the disease and kill more elderly people.
And making things even more worse by inciting panic and hysteria and drilling it into people that if they have a cough or sneeze therefore they have COVID and they’re gonna die! and so people rush to the hospital to be killed by the ventilators (I wrote that in an earlier post, but it’s true. Sorry about that.), or otherwise medical incompetence.
More cheating: Officials have been caught omitting negative test results to report 98% positive results when it was really 9.4%, and people who had never been tested are being sent notices that they have tested positive! The FRAUD is happening all over the country!
Our government, federal, state and local officials are lying to us about all this, and the lazy, dumb morons in the news media just repeat over and over and over what the lying bureaucrats tell them!
Jon Rappoport has written this excellent post on the ways of achieving false positives on the COVID test results, including the effects of those damn MASKS!
So, based on the earlier frantic push to contain the virus in Wuhan and the number of deaths there and in Italy, Wall Street got into panic-sell-offs and crashed the markets from the high of 29,000 down to 18,000 in just weeks, and because of one nursing home in Washington state having a problem, our fascist idiot governors ordered businesses shut down and schools closed, thus tanking the economy even more. And for no good reason!
They caused much more harm with those orders, business closures and much higher unemployment, high suicide rates, increasing child abuse and alcoholism and drug abuse, and all for no good reason.
And people are calling the “spikes” in Texas and Florida a “second wave” even though it is their first “wave” because they experienced very low hospitalization and death rates during those initial months of March through May. But the “public health” bureaucrats in those states are still making it up by lying about the numbers of “cases” (positive test results) and lying about the “overrun hospitals” that aren’t.
They are also making people wear ineffective and possibly harmful masks to obstruct their breathing and give them new health problems that will affect their immune systems to make them sick when they otherwise wouldn’t be.
And now we see buffoon Donald Trump wearing the mask and even recommending that people use them for no good reason. So he is now going along with the charade and against his own better judgment, because Trump is his own worst enemy.
And now they have gotten Trump to cancel his Florida RNC convention because of the lies, propaganda and fear-mongering.
Are all these governors and “public health” officials, and their media groupies, lying about COVID-1984 just because they pathologically hate Trump so much they would do ALL this to us and to the country to try to affect the 2020 election? Some people such as Rush Limbaugh are suggesting that.
With mail-in cheating and early voting i.e. early cheating, in addition to the aforementioned, I can’t see Trump still winning. But whether Trump wins or the Democrat, the election will be seen as the most illegitimate election in U.S. history. (Will drooling poll workers and town clerks offices attempt to falsely report higher numbers for Democrat and lower numbers for Trump? I wouldn’t be surprised.) People are droolingly hysterical now, in their hatred of Donald Trump. Because he said, “Drain the Swamp!”
At the same time all this is happening, the “Black Lives Matter” movement marches through the cities, burning down the cities like Soviet tanks and Nazis invading and marauding. Talk about propaganda. “We hate white people, but it is the white people who are the ‘racists’, etc., etc.”
And it has nothing to do with “black lives,” or race, or “social justice” or “equality.” This is a Marxist, anti-freedom, “anti-capitalism” movement that wants to get into power like the Soviets, and they want to enslave and subjugate the rest of the population, not just white people but everybody. Many of them in “Black Lives Matter” are white, by the way, the same kind of “useful idiots” during the Soviet Union.
Don’t be fooled by them. And don’t be brainwashed. Turn off the TV. Don’t listen to the lying news media propagandists and fascist governors and “public health” officials and “infectious disease experts.” Really. Turn off the TV.

James Corbett discusses possible mandatory vaccines. Like with COVID? (the thing with a case fatality rate of .1%)
On the YouTube page: “Stripped of its contextual baggage, the phrase ‘My Body, My Choice’ makes a compelling rallying cry because it conveys a fundamental truth that we all innately understand: I have the claim to my own body and what is done to it. So why, then, are we being asked to believe that when it comes to vaccinations during a declared pandemic it is ‘Your Body, Their Choice’?”
