Mueller Report – A Coup Attempt

The Daily Caller documents 16 Trump killing incidents that never happened. Yet CNN and most of the other media outlets all reported these events as if they did.  These incidents were all reported with descriptions such as ‘bombshell’,  ‘The walls are closing in’, and ‘impeachment’.  Each network describing each fake event with the same exact words, clearly fed to them by a single source.   The simple fact that all 16 incidents never happened, never had any verification, and were never vetted did not matter to these news organizations.

Much of the public, having become used to being fed lies, just lapped up these stories as true.   For at least these 16 times news outlets sold their view that Donald Trump was finished, doomed to be impeached and most likely would go to jail.  In most cases the quiet retractions were unnoticed by the consuming public.   These organizations, reporters and journalist have become nothing but mouth pieces for an agenda.  In this, they have violated the public trust.  Publishing unverified and often clearly untrue stories as news put them in violation of FCC rules regarding communications companies.

According to FCC.gov,

“Before we can renew a station’s license, we must first determine whether, during the preceding license term, the licensee has served the public interest, has not committed any serious violations of the Communications Act or the FCC’s rules, and has not committed other violations which, taken together, would constitute a pattern of abuse.”

A pattern of using lies and uncorroborated, unverified stories in order to promote the impeachment of a sitting, duly elected president is a violation of the public interest.  When combined with the actions of top FBI and DOJ officials such as John Brennen, James Comey, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and James Clapper, these organizations literally signed on to promote a coup against president Trump.  Three of these have been dismissed from the FBI for lying.   Yet even with tainted, proven falsehoods at least 4 of these people have been given a platform on major media without challenge to continue to promote untruths.

Why would major media companies sign on to supporting a plan to take down the  president of the United States?   Does the idea of support for a progressive ideology alone account for the same identical headlines and the identical false narratives often promoted by CNN, Buzzfeed, MSNBC, NBC and CBS?  Or, is there something else fueling the choice not to vet, not to research and not to report on the truth about these narratives.

Clearly in the case of Nicholas Sandman, the 16 year old wearing the ‘hated’ MAGA hat, not one of these outlets bothered to review the whole video.  Destroying this kid and creating the idea that MAGA was somehow racist was the prime objective.  Truth had no part in the story.  Did the story, as with those many other fake outrageous claims for impeachment, drive ratings and advertising dollars.   Is that the real motivation? Or are progressive groups actually funding the rise in these unreported stories.  I suspect that money, more that anything, plain old corporate profit is the real motivator behind these fake new stories.

The fact that sensation brings viewers is well known.  If the truth that the economy has improved, or that unemployment is at historic lows, or that minority employment has improved greatly is boring, why not accuse the president of being a racist. His support for Israel, support for minority opportunity zones, his own family ties being multi ethnic do not matter.   Instead the media will parse a few words and create a story that he is racist when his actions, stemming from way before he was president would say otherwise.   Does that story bring democratic votes?  Who is paying to put that idea out there?  Does it somehow increase viewership?

At what point when the border is overrun (as it is now) and reporters families are harmed by drugs or gangs, or murdered by someone who crossed the border illegally will these ‘reporters’ report on that crisis.  Will they ignore the ‘Angel Families’ until they themselves become ‘Angel Families’.  How much profit is worth the death of an American citizen?  The harm in misreporting this one issue is enormous.  More than any entity these organizations are responsible for harming the security of this country.  Yet, they are not held accountable.

At the minimum their license to broadcast should be placed under scrutiny.  They are not serving the public interest.  Further, the origins of their coordinated reporting of false narratives needs to be investigated.    As long at they purport to be journalists and purveyors of news, not doing the research and corroboration should result in fines and penalties for every false story.    In this case no news is bad news.

 

 

 

 

How Trump Duped Russia, Turkey, Syria,Iran and the Press

The press has lambasted President Trump, calling him an idiot, an imbecile,  and worse.  The reaction of the press to his decision to pull American troops out of Syria brought further condemnation by the press, outrage even, with the Daily Beast painting the President as unpredictable.  In all the criticism, and reaction, the press, most of Congress, much of the President’s cabinet and the enemies of the US missed the truth.  Trump never planned to pull out of Syria.  Not for a long time in the future.

In one move President Trump revealed the ill intentions harbored by numerous enemies.  Turkey’s double dealing was revealed for all to see.  Their secret relationship with Iran was uncovered as were Russia’s intention to help carve up Syria.  He flushed out members of his cabinet that would not stand by his strategies.

As he had many times before, the reaction to his plans laid bare the true intentions of the enemy.  Russia wasted no time trying to arrange a meeting with Turkey and Iran.   Turkish backed Syrian troops started positioning themselves for an attack on Kurdish held Manbij.  Turkey’s desire to take the Kurdish areas was on the table for all to see.

The alignment of Turkey and Russia, with Turkey being a NATO state, demonstrates their unreliability as an ally.  Turkey’s willingness to sit down with Iran threatens everyone in the region.

John Bolton’s trip to Israel put conditions on the pullout which could keep troops in Syria for years. (New York Times)  By the time Israel was reassured all the players had already revealed their cards.  Turkey had been revealed as an deceitful partner, Russia clearly an opportunist with designs on the area,  and congressmen and cabinet members with an anti-Trump agenda were rooted out.

The classic redirection put each of these players and the press in a tizzy.  Nevertheless, in terms of geo-political power President Trump out them all.  Each revealed things about their plans and intentions that could be countered by just staying engaged.  Our press and our enemies took Trump at his word and failed to see the wider plan. Even as the plan becomes clear,  the media can’t grasp it.

As just a spectator I can only see the broader benefit of the ruse.  The facts made public.  Add the intelligence gathering and informational benefit and the reality is the Trump along with US interests gained mightily while each of the other players have lost major face.  Trump outsmarted them all.  The troops stay, and the conditions of their withdrawal have been set.  The bad faith plans of our enemies have been laid bare for the world to see.

One day the press might give the President credit for out thinking our enemies. I doubt that. They certainly will never give him credit for out thinking the media, which has once again show itself to be the true dupe.

GOP Hubris – Fascism

According to Wikipedia fascism is a form of authoritarian nationalism.  I am not sure what you call what has gone on with the political parties, now obvious with Trump, but clearly not new.  Our constitution and our democracy no longer exists. Our ability to vote in our own best interest is gone.  The big donors are willing to destroy the people’s choice, (whether or not you like Cruz or Trump) to put their own candidate in the place of either.  That is not democracy.  This is the new fascism.  It’s the authoritarian rape of pillage of America at the expense of the vast majority of Americans.

Unless we want to continue to get poorer and less capable of living in this country I would suggest that everyone email the Republican National Committee and tell them that the voters have the say, not them, not the donors. Unless you want to live in dictatorship under Hilary or a republican puppet you need to email these people today.

ecampaign@gop.com

Tell them you won’t stand for their destruction of democracy and that already their policies have reduced the standard of living in this country.  That reduction is not acceptable.  Flood their email, stop their destruction of everything that makes this country great.  Please share this as much as possible as our future is at stake!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

Stopping the Gravy Train

You,  and I mean the person reading this blog, is paying for the massive gravy train our government provides to businesses such as GE, Monsanto, Koch Bros. Google, Microsoft and many others.  Your money is paying for a massive benefit to these companies through low immigrant wages, direct purchases and help to foreign countries which then buy goods and services from these huge conglomerates.  The net result is the rape of my pockets and yours.

Keeping up the myth of climate change is another way the government justifies moving our money out of our pockets to its benefactors.  The push now to steal the election from Trump or Cruz is just another round of efforts by the powerful to keep the gravy train going.  Mid-Eastern countries and Europe don’t want Trump because they are worried that their ability to pillage U.S. wealth will come to an end.

The underlying powers in the U.S. are huge.  As individuals unless we all voice that we want the democratic process, not the bought and paid for special interest process to work, we will lose our country to the pillagers.  These people want profits at the expense of middle class opportunity and at the expense of any national interest.  The next time someone in your neighborhood is robbed by an illegal immigrant, you can point your finger at Congress and at those interests that are letting even criminal illegal immigrants remain free. Perhaps we should all stop buying GE products or using the Google search engine.

Somehow those companies need to learn its in their best interest to defend American interests, not just their own pockets.

 

Reincarnation and Climate Change

China recently made it clear that they needed to approve of any person that was reincarnated as the next Dalai Lama.  Now, we all know that except in the case of Jesus Christ, reincarnation has never been proven to occur.  Even he was not reincarnated, he was resurrected.  The Romans 2000 years ago also tried to deny the return of Christ. The point here, whether its the  Chinese government or the Romans two millennia ago, is that there is no limit on the power governments want to assume.  The authority they want, the control they crave does not even have to exist for them to assume it belongs to them

So we get to the United States. Here the Obama administration has debated suing oil companies for being climate change deniers.   They want to control what people think through the force of law.  Even though there are lots of scientists on both sides of this issue, its an issue that hampers their efforts at controlling who uses oil and how much oil they use.   It is the height of arrogance and the antithesis of a representative republic (democracy).

Recently, I fixed our sump pump.  This small device controls whether or not our basement floods.  It moves water and sludge from the crawl space to the outside.  It controls whether our foundation remains solid or whether it erodes destroying our house.  Watching our government  it is clear that the mechanism for protecting the foundation of our democracy has failed.  The sump pump of Congress and the courts whose job it is to keep the sludge out of our system have failed.  Like the sump pump at home, they need an overhaul.

Spying on You

The FBI has revised its own rules about how it will use NSA data.  If you have ever had a conversation by phone or email with someone outside our country they can now review your emails, phone calls, and web traffic.   The FBI pretty much admits they were doing this anyhow, but now they claim legal authority to do so.  Basically, if you bought a kids toy in China they can look at all your correspondence.  

Why was there spying on conservatives and the illegal use of the IRS? The fact that both parties condone this intrusion is appalling.  That more than any other reason is a reason to elect a conservative that upholds the letter of the constitution.   I think Trump would like to use this power.  We are 1970’s Soviet Union or 2016’s China.  What you say is monitored.  What you write is monitored and bad things happen to people that make waves against the established money and special interest fed order.

Look around you.  WELCOME TO THE GULAG comrade!!!

 

The Imperial Exploitation of America

Thus far in the past year IT workers at Disney, and Southern California Edison have had to train their foreign worker replacements.   Not only have they lost their IT jobs, but they also have had to endure the humiliation of training their replacements.  Now this same thing is happening at Abbott Labs.  180 more American workers are having their jobs stolen by foreign workers willing to work for less than market value.

So, who is to blame.  All of the Senators and Congressmen that take money from lobbyists and special interests are to blame.  These are not American citizens and have no right to jobs where there are qualified Americans.  I would urge Congress to shut down the H1B program until all the workers who want to work in America have jobs. That also means shutting down the EB5 program that is nothing less than selling American jobs in exchange for foreign capital.

Between illegal immigration and the H1B program it is not rocket science to figure out why wages are depressed.  These companies and our government are not interested in American success, they are only interested in their own pockets.  The environment that lets them rape Americans needs to change.  Our own companies and government are selling us off piecemeal.  Its imperialism in reverse.  Obama’s favorite thing, the destroying of America.

(Disney is family friendly, except for those they fired.  Those families can’t afford Disney tickets because Disney destroyed them in the pursuit of profit.  Perhaps people should not go there.)
