The battle actually continues in the great post election conflict, with the chaos in DC in January. A fuller exposition on this next time, but here are the thoughts I have about the Capitol building clash:
Set aside ideology, or personal preferences you have about “how a President is supposed to behave” (ahem, as if optics was a high priority consideration of the Founders). A mountain range level of election theft was committed across at least six states in the November 2020 coup disguised as an election. Coupled with the coordination of the tech giants in silencing the sitting President of the United States across all major social media (supposedly) in response to the events in DC on January 6, it represents the single biggest authoritarian power grab in American history.
And so far, it has gone unchallenged. As we speak the main culprits behind the chaos are drafting legislation to criminalize any and all Donald Trump rallies. So much for post-election calls for encouraging “unity.” Exactly how do people expect grassroots people with common sense to feel about such a brazen assault on election integrity, and free speech itself, if even the President can be victimized by it? How should we expect them to react? The January 6 peaceful protest, that turned into a confrontation in the Capitol building, provides us a clue.
The Gateway Pundit (or TGP) summarizes the problem: “President Trump received millions of more ballots than any candidate before him he crushed Obama’s record of 69 million in 2008, with over 74 million votes this year. There is ample evidence this was the greatest election win in history. But then on election night, the counting stopped, which never happened before, and suddenly early in the morning, the key swing states all received dumps of Biden only votes. From that point forward President Trump never took the lead. These votes were never forensically reviewed…
TGP provided a breakdown of the fraud issues in the six or seven contested states as of January 6, that contributed to the flash point reached that day. The DOJ and FBI refused to investigate any of the incidents of proven fraud including:
** The impossible dropped votes for Joe Biden in the early morning
** The collusion of several swing states to shut down counting on election night after Trump pulled ahead in ALL of the battleground states
** The liberal counting centers LOCKING OUT GOP observers for up to TWO DAYS
** The flipping of ballots from Trump to Biden on live TV.”
I also agree with Lew Rockwell’s summary of evidence that agent provocateurs were among the protesters instigating (in some cases directly performing) the violence that occurred. Photos, police records and accounts described several known individuals dressed as Antifa or similar extremist groups goading MAGA protesters into violent or destructive activity, although dozens of eyewitnesses noted the real Trump supporters were observed stopping the provocateurs from committing more damage. The point was to make the majority of those attending to look bad, and scapegoat the organizers (and especially Trump) as guilty of inciting violence.
This narrative was coming from the very same people who told everybody to carefully distinguish between “mostly peaceful protesters” versus a handful of extreme agitators, when it came to the months of violence that occurred at BLM protests during the past summer. The promoters of that narrative were also the same folks who insisted, when it came to election fraud concerns, on proof being conclusively provided before throwing terms like fraud, “treason,” coup d’etat, “crime” or “insurrection” around. But when it comes to attacking, belittling or ruining “the deplorables,” a different standard seems to be applied. From a purely “cui bono?” perspective, the best way to summarize the incident is to call it a setup to demonize the outsiders, to benefit the presumably ascendant insiders.
If the forces committed to crushing would-be wrong think, and re-establishing an echo chamber in the political mainstream can do this to Trump and his 75 million supporters, what about us? Does anybody think a Libertarian alternative can get anywhere, with this kind of regime devoted to crushing dissent? They certainly can’t get anywhere unless they stand up to them and push back. Perhaps not in a non-constructive way as with the DC confrontation, but in some way that both furthers free speech and is truly pro-liberty, broadly speaking. We must realize this smarter engagement is needed due to the massive institutional obstacles the deep state establishment can mount against the liberty resistance.
We’ve seen how effective this statist elite has been in crushing perfect, intellectually coherent Libertarian Presidential contenders like Ron Paul, and how they shut out coverage even when it came to other candidates with senior elected experience, like Gary Johnson. Trump succeeded in 2016 because he had the resources to get around their obstacles, was willing to openly oppose them, employed various “4D chess” strategies, and frankly because the establishment arrogantly underestimated him until it was too late. The elite quickly recovered from that mistake in 2020, but have still retained the utter contempt they have for the deplorables, as well as their boundless power lust to control the narrative over all political thought. This monopolistic egotism still needs to be fought, be it by the Trump movement, or by its successor.
So I say to the old and new media giants: The more you tighten your grip, the more freedom alternatives will slip through your fingers. Trump may yet ultimately prevail or be exonerated in the election battle, when the declassified findings and other secret documents are revealed for the public to consume. This data (largely provided by military intelligence ops conducted in recent weeks) may establish that millions of ballots were compromised as originally stated, causing several of the states or courts to nullify the original certifications.
This development would serve as a corrective for the biased decisions (or non decisions) that came down from the courts during the election battle, who relentlessly tossed dozens of suits brought to challenge the irregularities. Virtually all of them were dismissed over technicalities, not the merits of the case. Most of the suits were brought by third parties, not by the Trump campaign itself, and some of the biggest are still pending. And the politicized rulings were out of order, throwing out the cases while still in the filing stage (before discovery, and before evidence was heard in a hearing or trial), which suggests the courts were compromised. If you didn’t even hold a hearing, you can’t honestly rule on a case you haven’t heard. Many suggest the fraudsters chose the contested states under dispute precisely because they had swamp-corrupted judges and officials, who would dutifully rubber stamp and certify the fraud committed.
The military intel and declass data, which no court has yet heard, is expected to help reverse the previous rulings, and certifications based on fraud. In one sense, this was a giant sting operation to catch all the perpetrators who signed off on destroying election integrity in one big net. The word is Trump has been planning this counter strategy to fight a crooked election for at least three years. Once again, 4D chess. This is the establishment’s overdue comeuppance, and comeuppance is justice. Personally, I feel like Col. Troughtman in a Rambo movie, after the authority figures told everybody “Rambo’s done, he’s finished, it’s over!” Then they run back and yell, “you knew he figured out a way to survive!” Breaking my poker face, all I can say is “I suspected.” Be it in four weeks, or four more years, I suspect the deplorables will win.
The seasons of Trump and the elite follies of swampish serpents have reached a cynical crescendo. Following the past winter of shampeachment, the spring of COVID and the summer of laugh riots, we have arrived at the autumn of Justice, where the serial misdeeds and multiple felonies of the swamp were at last supposed to be prosecuted, with activist judges replaced by Constitutional ones—only for us to find the Devil appears to have a counter plan. This is an evolving situation that should have been resolved on Election “day,” so forgive me if the strange flow of orchestrated events diverge from my own expectations:
Bedtime for Biden, or Zombie Joe?
While my post on the demise of Hillary Clinton four years ago featured an analysis suggesting the end of her campaign could be summed up with the phrase “Bedtime for Hillary,” it appears that Sloppy-Sleepy-Creepy-Deepy Statey Joe Biden is taking another path. The difference between the two? Hildabeast was a vampire, an aging but extremely competent cash sucking leader of the Darkness, and Queen of the Cult of the Omnipotent State, but in the end was vulnerable to the wooden stake of scandal, just like any other pol. Biden is a dull, mentally declining, often oblivious, yet fully resilient ZOMBIE, who just will not die unless you decapitate him. That seems to be why, after five decades of lying, or non-achievement in his political career, multiple failed Presidential runs, several full blown sex, harassment, and influence-peddling scandals, as well as repeated stalls in his 2020 run, and a spectacularly unlikeable and left-authoritarian running mate, the swamp establishment has chosen to try to drag him across the finish line, twice this year, to a dishonest ‘virtual’ victory in the race to the White House.
Or has it? The manner and rollout of his “virtual” electoral run-up to 270+ electoral votes has left an awful, galactic sized bad taste in the mouth of just about every thinking American, other than those trying at all costs to get rid of Orange Man. As I put it in previous posts, such as this one, the aim of Trump is “to shut down the Deep State swamp, while that swamp is out to shut him down first, this time by getting him defeated in November. To achieve that end, they are prepared to do just about anything.” Or, even more bluntly, “…Elite party leaders really think they have figured out, or learned from their election rigging mistakes from 2016, and will get the fraud right next time.” Well, here we are, and the 2.0 version of shutting down the outsiders is in full swing.
I will simply not waste much time “proving” to the reader that the 2020 post election count was blatantly jiggered beyond description. If you don’t realize that, you are the problem. As is much of the media and political establishment, including allegedly conservative bastions such as FOXNews, who have been trying to pretend that the events following Election day evening were natural or legitimate. How nice of these media notables to all lay out their propagandistic support for massive election fraud, for all the world to see. Now we know who the useful idiots are, or who are downright bought out. In EVERY other backwater or 3rd world country where the government STOPS COUNTING when the “wrong” candidate is winning, then starts it up later to suddenly show the “right” candidate winning, our election monitors call it fraud. In all of those cases, when tons of votes suddenly come in overnight, all for one candidate, even though the authorities say they had STOPPED counting, we all know what happened. Epstein didn’t kill himself, and this election is being stolen.
For those who do care about evidence, here’s a long list of links that further document the theft. Says one observer about the Midwest alone, “Trump was up 350,000 in MI at 2:30 am and “poof” it was gone when everyone woke up at 9 am. And Trump didn’t get any of those magical 375,000 votes? In WI he was up 100,000 votes and “poof” by 9 am 138,000 ballots came in, with no votes for Trump?” I don’t know about you, but if I was a candidate who ran up a six figure statewide lead with 95% of the vote tallied, but was then told the entire lead had been mystically vaporized, I would be suing everybody in creation! One other quote from a self-Described Dem party worker, who bragged on Facebook: “I work for Wayne Co, MI and I threw out every Trump ballot I saw. Tens of thousands of them and so did all of my co-workers. It was a joke.” As my biology teacher used to say, “second time, for slow children”: In third world countries rife with corruption, where they STOP counting on election night when the “wrong” candidate is winning, only to restart once they magically find a way to get the “right” candidate to be winning, this event pattern is universally understood to be mass election fraud. It’s why international teams get sent to monitor such elections in the first place. I guess it’s time we sent the teams here, because it seems the US has also become a backwater banana state country.
Most of the so-called opposition in Congress, including several “leading” potential candidate hopefuls for 2024, have also so far offered up silence in the face of the Great Steal. Other voices have carved out what they discern is the President’s actual set of tactics available, to begin a counter-offensive to in effect get the election back, this time only using fully legal and constitutional means:
What Kinda Really Happened
An additional breakdown on Trump’s “gone full animal” strategy can be found here. It seems what the coup plotters (in this case, overthrowing Trump through election fraud) were counting on was 1) the legacy media running up the electoral tally for Biden past 270 by late election evening, permitting the Zombie Big Guy to declare he was the winner, and 2) that same mainstream media elite immediately launching the propaganda war to get the public to fall in line. Only Trump’s voters didn’t comply, and landed him decisive victories in Florida and Ohio early on during that night, followed by his running up six figure statewide leads in almost all of the battleground states with most votes tallied by late evening. This thus made it absolutely impossible for the media to declare those states for Biden, giving him and the self-decreed “mainstream media” or MSM no high-ground cover at all to crown him the winner and President-Elect.
So the fake news guys had to do a tap dance, to not declare major states Trump had won (like Florida, Texas et al), while very quickly declaring states for Biden (like Arizona) where the voting and counting had barely started. Between this, and the total exposure of most polling as useless or fraught with consistently bad sampling, for the second election cycle in a row, the gang of thieves were left with no option but to launch the cheating operations ASAP. Because Trump was mere hours away from receiving “100% vote tallied” indications on most of the battleground states he was definitively leading in, five (or more) states called off vote counting after 10 pm, in order to keep up the appearance of a competitive race in those places long enough to uHaul in the “Al Franken votes” overnight. This call-off by multiple states at the same time was utterly unprecedented, yet the MSM soon started to announce to us there were “no problems, conditions normal,” just like a frantic Hans Solo did when his team had just taken over part of the Death Star. This was kinda impossible to do when the President himself had “pulled a Babe Ruth” in his election night remarks, by boldly suggesting that suspicious votes could be snuck in to voting centers en masse by 4 am in the morning. And then later, just like that… Since then, more confirmed reports of six-figure vote stealing, from Georgia to Virginia and other states have been coming in literally faster than I can clean up typos on this post.
The Winter of Krycek
I bring up the infamous Al Franken case, because it is the textbook example of manufacturing votes (later perfected into the scheme called “vote harvesting”) and acts as a kind of shorthand for how it works. The former SNL head writer was in a laser tight race for US Senate, and appeared to be on the losing end with all votes counted, when—lo and behold—somebody suddenly found a bunch of missing ballots, basically all for Franken, somehow mistakenly left in somebody’s car, leading to his victory. Even though this was hyper-obviously suspicious, and clearly effected the outcome of the race, with nobody explaining any chain of custody that could have led to this back-of-a-car result, or how all the votes found could be for one candidate in a 50-50 race, there was no prosecution of any one ever for election fraud, and people just, well, accepted the theft of this Senate seat. That’s it.
That’s how fraud works in US elections, where people have conditioned themselves to complacently let instances of it go, or else assert “not enough of it ever happens to effect the outcome.” This is done in order to protect their bedrock presumption that the system’s procedures and protocols are fair and legitimate. Just like with police brutality, where the culprits get away with it 95% of the time (until now) because people simply accepted the existing engagement protocols cops used to justify killing or beating suspects up. The alternative is to frankly acknowledge all this vote fraud, as principled libertarians do, by objecting to the introduction of force or fraud in politics, and thereby be ostracized for trading in “unfounded conspiracy theories that are undermining our democracy.” Just as in police brutality, where drawing attention to the issue has so often been robotically mis-characterized as being “anti-cop” or anti-law enforcement, regardless of the details. Not letting fraud and abuse go would require us to “put on the glasses” (as in They Live) and acknowledge other darker dynamics are going on, and have been for some time. More pertinently, we would then have to exercise personal responsibility, and actually DO SOMETHING about it.
Okay, let’s keep the cultural allusions coming, to clarify this train of thought. What I’m saying is, it’s just as the world of Star Trek (well, pre-Discovery) wants to believe in the perfect Federation, or in sunshine and rainbows everywhere, to the point where they don’t even want to acknowledge the existence of Section 31 (its black ops intelligence unit), doing “dirty” or illegal stuff behind the scenes. Even better, it’s like the reluctance of the FBI in the X-Files to realize the cynical maneuverings of undercover agent Alex Krycek (as played by Nicholas Lea, a character acting as a mole for other Deep State persons performing various cover-ups, from within the agency itself). In one episode, he tries to kill off his partner Agent Mulder, and when Mulder survives the attempt and reports this to supervision, he’s informed Krycek has simply “disappeared.” Mulder’s inevitably replies, “and that’s it?”—somebody attempts to whack an FBI agent, and can then slink away and vanish Scot-free, like nothing happened?
The Fall, or Rise of Justice?
In essence, that is the very winter of Krycek we are facing, where America is simultaneously being goaded into accepting monumental and blatant fraud now and going forward, while pretending the process manipulated to produce it by undercover bad actors is all fine, “no problems, conditions normal.” The elite plotters are relying on the complacency of the public in the wake of the most brazen vote heist in a (formerly?) first world country in history. Well, will they get away with it? You just know they made these calculations in the planning stages, such as “well, they bought into the fraud in past elections.” Or, “hey, we sold ’em on wearing face diapers, so maybe…” Were they even bothering to hide the theft, considering 450,000 of the disputed ballots have ONLY a Biden vote on it, with no other races voted on? And think of the level of “Cigarette-Smoking-Man” arrogance required to order the Kryceks to get several states to shut down vote counting at the same time on election night, then tell the public to just blow it off.
Even many of the functionaries of the dark winter must be wincing at the extent to which they have had to go to fabricate the counterfeit victory for Biden, and some may be wondering what is in store for them after this thievery. Frankly, I expect a bunch of them will be handsomely paid off for their efforts (coupled with the signing of the obligatory non disclosure agreements), while others may end up being flat out bumped off. Others may still want some semblance of the free country we once had retained after this episode, which they hope will be simply a “one-off” dance with soft coup mechanics, performed to get rid of Trump. If they believe this, I also have 1,000 Brooklyn Bridges to sell them, and will throw in the Queensboro Bridge as a bonus. Grow up, fraudsters, there are more uHaul jobs coming, and your masters will expect you to comply in all future heists. The Democratic high command is also already planning crackdowns on socialists and true progressives in the party. “But I have rights,” say these Kryceks, to whom the Cigarette Smoking Swamp Man will coldly reply, “You have no rights, only orders to be obeyed.”
Think, to bring up just one example, upon what awaits Trump associates targeted from jump for political and personal ruin like General Michael Flynn, who was cleared of charges months ago when the Justice Department withdrew their case, only to find the Obama-appointed Judge Emmett Sullivan refused to dismiss the case. Every single one of the Attorney General candidates fake President-Elect Biden is considering would almost certainly attempt to reinstate the perjury conviction against General Flynn, if Judge Sullivan does not throw it out prior to them being confirmed. That’s the team Obama end game on Flynn—to get Biden elected, then make a motion to somehow “un-withdraw” the DOJ’s conviction, that crazy Obama crony Sullivan will no doubt grant. Count on it.
This is the dark winter that will go forward for all of us in the Zombie era—no more transparent process, back to obscurity, press conferences once an Olympics. Opposition will be criminalized, not just shadowbanned from social media. Scandalous crimes committed by the Deep Statists, WILL BE covered up, and padlocked shut. Back to locking up black people, and invading new countries to bomb brown people who are eight time zones away. Collaborating with the Bidenistas will be the Never-Trumper RINO GOP, those pseudo-right members of the swamp who can’t wait to go straight back to supporting this faux “conservative” agenda of more minority arrests, more drug wars, and more interventionist insurgency military campaigns or “forever wars” across the Middle east and Africa. This backyard battle between Trump and the establishment Republicans has been as constant (during his first term) as the frontyard battle with the liberal end of the swamp, but during this time he made a lot of progress. There were a lot more RINOs in control or in controlling positions in Congress four years ago. Trump had to fight Speaker Paul Ryan, the forever bitter John McCain, Comey at FBI, Coats at DNI, lots swamp Bush and other never-Trumper holdovers in the bureaucracy during his first years in office. His first term has been largely a cleaning out operation to get the swamp GOP out of the way. The RINOs blocked Trump from getting a lot done, but they are less powerful now, and will be much less powerful once he is ultimately re-elected (following the legal reversal of the fake Biden ballots), as they will not have his re-election to use as leverage over him anymore. Here’s to the coming rise, not a fall of Justice.
Silent Jo and Silent Joe
Meanwhile, Jo Jorgensen represented the Libertarian agenda well in general, with a few culture war glitches (such as awkwardly defending the social media giants for banning extreme or “hate” speech on their platforms). Why would a pro-liberty person stand up for Big Corporate exercising censorship, and its attempts to prioritize race and identity politics issues? Why did she back up their violating their government subsidy to even have a protected platform, so long as they did not make publishing, or “editorial” decision like, say, censoring “racist” remarks? Who exactly decided that they were, or that canceling free speech was pro-liberty? Anyhow, electorally speaking, Jo basically failed to make as big an impact this year for the LP, compared to that of predecessor Gary Johnson, and she was not even a “margin of difference” figure in most of the battleground state clashes (although some would point to four such states, others will note the fraudsters would have simply manufactured more votes for Biden to make up for any more votes Trump might have picked up if the LP was not on the ballot). This was the expected trade off for the LP deciding to go with a “pure” ideological candidate this cycle (who had no major experience as an elected official), but it led to a circumstance where Jorgensen seemed to be a “silent” voice on the ballot. There was nothing like the frequent coverage Johnson got, to the point where MSNBC et al excoriated Johnson over the “Aleppo” gaffe last time.
For that matter, why did Jo not comment on the Trumpman’s success in curtailing foreign intervention in general during this term? Many of us wondered why Jo remained quiet about the most significant pro-libertarian developments of the year, for instance the temporary separation of school and state that happened due to the COVID lockdowns (as millions adjusted to teaching their kids at home, instead of at the government schools). More significantly for the longer term, what of the strong 6-3 pro-constitution, originalist majority that has emerged on the US Supreme Court? The replacement of late Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Amy Coney Barrett means a reliable train of pro-2nd amendment decisions for at least the next decade. Progress on other fronts are also likely under the current majority, with the non-activist court being strongly inclined to not create a judicial rationale for expanded government on those issues, as per the original intent of the Consititution. It’s at least possible that Jorgensen would have been received more postively by the populist base had she acknowledged SOME liberty gains had been achieved by their leader. Nor did Jo meaningfully make the effort to triangulate the Democrats either, other than the PC virtue signaling towards the tech giants noted above.
Jo’s unwillingness to address these developments was also frustrating in light of how the media and the swamp reacted. The Dems are certainly behaving like Lord Voldemort, and acting like one of their horcruxes are being destroyed with the removal of their control over the Supreme Court. But, there was no silence as deafening as the one coming from fake President-elect Biden, who seemed to stay away from press scrutiny and the campaign trail for 9 months straight, in order to allow the Kryceks to do the work for him in stealing the election. Who ever heard of a national candidate “putting a lid” on doing any campaigning almost every other day for months, as Biden did? Or avoiding meaningful questions, again, for months on end? Or outright declining, time and again, to clearly specify what his policies were going to be? Only after his faux-victory announcement has Biden started talking about massive policy changes he is going to immediately put into effect upon inauguration. “No Malarkey” should have been replaced by “No Transparency” as his campaign theme.
Joe could keep low because he knew the media had gone all in the tank for him, and preferred to spend their time savaging the President with attack mode verbal gunfire. It has been the most incredible display of bias in modern media history, and that’s saying something in view of what’s been seen over recent decades. The media believes it doesn’t need credibility, it just needs to control the headlines, and weekend news cycle with first impressions. As in, run a misleading story at the start of the show or on the top of the fold, but bury the truth or correcting information 10 inches down, or 15 minutes later. Blast the shock story on Thursday-Friday, like tax allegations designed to make Trump look dishonest, so that it dominates the talking head shows through Sunday. Machine gun Trump with attack questions as if they were a Bond villain at the debates (and even at “town halls” where the attack “moderator” somehow ends up asking most of the questions). Push never-Trump comments made by Michael Cohen despite his felony convictions and obvious bad motivations, but bury comments by pro-Trump Roger Stone because “he’s a convicted felon.” And on and on. The media even foisted “race” issues on the nation all through the summer and fall, in order to pepper the President with constant insinuations that he and his supporters were bigots.
This last part was a bit surreal given the reality that no one was talking about race as a major national issue before the George Floyd incident—it was another scare canard entirely manufactured for election time, to benefit one party. Come to think of it, was the Floyd case itself manufactured, to create the race protests/riots that followed? Who bailed out officer Chauvin to the tune of a million dollars last month? The MSM is uninterested. What about the appalling Biden-Harris record of locking up blacks unjustly? The MSM is uninterested. These same fake news agitators actually put more heat on attacking mythically “white supremacist” groups like the Proud Boys (a libertarian civic group run by a Black Latino) than on another white person recently exposed for pretending to be a career black activist. To the MSM, the only thing that mattered was demogaging and election-robbing Silent Joe to victory, by acting as mouthpieces for him. The election steal, with the 7 selected media sources uniquely designated (by whom, on what authority?) to officially “declare the winner” of the race, was meant by the elite to at last formally restore the establishment’s control over the narrative, that it utterly lost circa 2015-2016 with the ascension of the outsider movement.
Canceling the Zombie Apocalypse
Zombie Biden and his Krycek Winterettes have won the dishonest battle, but will they win the war? As far as the populist, pro-liberty side is concerned, Trump must win, to get the Wall further built, to put 300 more sane judges on the bench, to continue the economic recovery, to finish bringing the boys home, to lock up the coup plotters etc. But he and the remaining patriots have to put in policy measures, permanent statutes, or regulations to prevent the Deep Statists from doing everything they intend to do if they ever do finally win. Why did we let the swamp get this close to destroying this country, with one election, in the first place???? We the People must stay in power, at least long enough to fortify the Republic in case we lose power in a future cycle.
So, the challenge is before the land to save the true election, with its transparent process and verified votes, from the fake post election that seeks to wheel in tons of phantom or glitched ballots overnight, to disenfranchise 70 million voters and bury freedom. In a phrase, this is a war to either recount, or re-vote! My next post will relate the outcome of that pitched battle, but for now, consider the following key points:
One: We must loudly remind the lying media every day until the election battle is over, that we KNOW they were using bogus sampling in their polls, consistently oversampling Democrats while consistently under sampling independents and Republicans (I have inside knowledge, as I used to work at a polling company, but this has certainly become widely known). Make it a discussion point in all social media discussions, comment sections in articles, and call in shows. Let them all know we will NOT accept the fraud result that was contrived in selected states so as to deliberately coincide with the bogus polls, and we do not accept their attempts to demoralize us. If anything, it’s revving us up all the more. Biased fake media lording over us, R.I.P., as per this comment by Andrew Torba of GAB: “The era of smug inner city elites dictating “facts” to us like a parent scolding a child is forever over.”
Two: Going forward, There needs to be an anti-fraud regulation created that requires published ‘professional’ polls to reflect the known major distribution of registered voters. Independents, who are a third of the population, were under-represented in all the leading polls. Since Independents are mostly unaligned, they may be susceptible to the “go with the winner” syndrome. So the pollsters were likely trying to steer them to Biden by constantly over-sampling Democrats, to stampede them into voting that same way, and thereby make their polling a self-fulfilling prophecy. Again, let them KNOW we KNOW about this.
Three: Barack Obama, in his behind the scenes machinations, is trying to set a new record: he wants to be the first ex-President to disrupt the peaceful transition to his successor’s new administration TWICE, both in 2016 and 2020. He and his team authorized the phony Russia-gate scandal to hamper his successor’s first term, and has championed a fake vote Color Revolution, complete with supposedly “glitchy” software (that consistently “glitched” Biden’s way), to frustrate Trump from having a second term. Again, let them KNOW we KNOW about this.
Four: What much of the Democratic strategy was about, is locking in the independents and moderate voters early. Dems were really, really upset over a lot of independent voters breaking for Trump in the last two weeks of the 2016 race (possibly due to Comey reopening the email investigation in late October). To prevent that this time, the swamp has conducted a never-ending character-assassination attack campaign on Trump for four years, in order to intimidate and scare moderates into leaning for Biden by the 2020 election. Then they connived to push for massive mail-in voting (using inflated COVID concerns as a cover) to get those Biden leaners to submit their ballots early, so they can’t switch their vote to Trump later. Millions of voters nonetheless flooded Google or town clerks in the closing weeks, seeking info on how to change their vote—and many, many did. Again, let them KNOW we KNOW about all of this.
Five: Whether you believe in Him or not, God actually IS in control. Don’t view the post-election steal as a set back, but as a set UP for something greater. This will roll out the way the Author of Liberty intends it to. Do not pray for victory, pray from His victory.
The story so far: The pivotal months ahead of the 2020 Presidential election have seen a powerful dynamic act of mass triangulation at play. Riot friendly, mob-driven protests (coupled with the “COVID crisis” tyranny) have acted as rainmakers to move the country towards anarchistic discontent, compatible with creating a “new normal” designed to put people in a mood to dispose of the current troublesome occupant of the White House. The perpetrators are brain dead talking point NPC mob bot mutants, who should not be confused with old time liberal intellectuals who will at least try to make a reasoned argument. You know, the sensible kind who advise social tolerance, versus the new kind who support “cancel culture.” The ones who will argue for bigger government based on some study, versus the new kind who advance programs by defining all their opponents as racists or anti-science. And so on.
The once professional, now mob left is now LITERALLY tearing America down, as seen by their toppling and defacing statues of various Founding Fathers, and the disrespectful and spiteful attacks on ALL cops, not just the ones suspected of brutality. Let that truly sink in. Trump will be able to use all the violent “protest” footage in commercials this late summer and fall, to explicitly show his opponents are a destructive force. You can already write the copy for the commercial messages.
This is another example of the contempt the “culturally superior” left has for the working class not under their umbrella, AKA the deplorables. This elitist contempt extends to the police, who are mostly made up of working class people. There is even some post-election war gaming going on about some left parts of the country seceding if they don’t get the results they want in November. So, time to apply some liberty Growth Hacking to this conundrum of chaos, that is the crescendo of the integrated plan to oust the leader (for better or worse) of the populist-libertarian or outsider trend. Trump has made more defacto victories for peace and freedom at least possible for Main Street people in recent years, and this dynamic should be protected. Some specific ‘hacking tactics’ will be mentioned below, as part of a combined strategy for people to put up a “scrap” to stop this madness.
The Summer of Organized Chaos
Exactly what does the death of George Floyd in Minnesota from two months ago, have to do with removing statues of Presidents in NYC? As the old song goes, “…and you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” How did we go from civilization, to slaves wearing face diapers, and playing a new version of Duck and Cover both with respect to a virus no more deadly than the seasonal flu, and to lawless demonstrations that follows no rule other than the authoritarian bromide, “do as I say?” Who put this unelected mob in charge of our lives, or of CHOP zones, leaving us with scraps?
In short, the pro forma radicalization of the street statists and DC statists this election cycle has aimed to move the Overton window (the window of acceptable mainstream discourse) even further in a cultural authoritarian direction than it already was. Forget the two-way party puppet show—it’s the Swamp that wants Trump gone in a few months so they can reverse the pullout from Afghanistan, and other insurgent “forever war” zones. The shampeachment didn’t work, COVID plannedemic didn’t work, the race riots didn’t work, so it’s back to “Trump isn’t keeping us safe abroad, and is in bed with Russia” again. If that doesn’t work, they’ll roll out another sex scandal….
And just as the post Floyd protests have been shown to be clearly coordinated, the sudden parade of military never-Trumpers who “just happened” to swiftly appear for interviews the week after to condemn the President’s response, is also NOT spontaneous. I think as stated previously, the plan was to goad Trump into quickly sending out troops to deal with the riots, resulting in even more violence, that would be blamed on his “recklessness.” This is why the Dem Mayors and Governors held back bringing in the guard, they were trying to draw Trump in first. The point is the generals were queued up to be ready to slam him regardless of how he handled it, but would have really had the ammo to nail him had there been more violence. Could this be why (by telling the Mayors to do their jobs) Trump pre-empted the blue-state pols who tried to get him to commit troops first to deal with the rioters? Did he suspect there might be some people with access to uniforms out to fake being guardsmen or other law enforcement, who would then mow down black protestors, and so escalate the matter still further? Did the blue-state Dems suspect this as well, nonetheless worked to set Trump up to be blamed for the violence?
As for the possible outcome of the trial of the officers involved in George Floyd’s death: The key issue in court would be reasonable doubt, and police immunity based on following established protocol. The facts pointing to homocide in the case of Floyd are obvious, but so is the fact that the engagement tactics used came right out of the city’s current police training protocol. Following those procedures is what helps create immunity for police, for their actions in a given case. In addition, some evidence (from the police video cam and transcript) can be used by the defense to assert that Floyd already had respiratory problems (from drug abuse), regardless of the knee-on-neck hold aggravating his condition. That existing protocol and the counter evidence may be sufficient to establish reasonable doubt over whether the homocide was premeditated (or even reckless) to a jury. Police are acquitted about 95% of the time of brutality charges on this basis, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Derek Chauvin, and the other cops there, were acquitted on a murder in the first degree (or even second degree) charge. I brought these and other points up in a recent video exchange with my classical liberal peers:
This is why Libertarians complain that there are way too aggressive, overly militaristic tactics going on in current police engagement of suspects. This issue gets distorted by many liberals, who falsely attribute every such incident to racism, or by some conservatives, who often deify cops and think they can never make a mistake. We need more Andy Griffith, less SWAT team mentality by modern law enforcement. The vast majority of suspects who have been subjected to excessively harsh engagement were not armed with assault rifles, explosives or the like. The abuse is arguably worse at the federal level (obvious example, the SWAT team arrests of unarmed senior citizens Paul Manafort and Roger Stone) but you get the idea.
Meanwhile, a few thoughts on notable alternatives. Are there better choices to address these matters than Trump or Biden? On paper, yes, but…. recapping the stakes: If the swamp-backed candidate wins even once, we will lose for decades. 2016 was a crucial election because the forces pushing globalist takeover were all in position to pounce. Hillary would have packed the Supreme Court with two or more lockstep liberals, thus no pro-Constitutional decision would ever happen again. That court would have already destroyed the Second Amendment. She would have locked the US into TPP and the Climate Change Accords, and other bureaucratic expansions of the global omnipotent state. In 2020, the same “on the brink” debacle awaits us if the mob left-dominated forces succeed.
In this environment, can the LP candidacy of Jo Jorgenson offer an alternative means of holding back these demonic consequences? Can she package libertarian policy in a way that breaks the party out of its 5% status, and builds on the vote totals Gary Johnson achieved for the party four years ago? She’s running for President, but is anybody running for, or towards her? My own sentiment is that only a scrappy, charismatic crusader type like Adam Kokesh (had he been nominated) may have worked to create a mass coalition, that could have taken an explicitly Libertarian candidacy to victory in 2020.
Yes, He Kanye
And then there’s Hip Hop star and Trump-friendly celebrity Kanye West running, who is gathering signatures as of this writing in key states (well, at least the ones he can still make the deadline for). Before people laugh, remember the last time mainstream folks all chuckled over a flamboyant tycoon announcing his bid for office, was when Donald came down the escalator. The laughing stops once they realize Kanye is probably not serious about winning in 2020, but in making an impact now, in preparation for his real run in 2024. He can especially accomplish this by scooping up enough centrist Democratic votes, to deprive Dems of any popular vote victory for Joe Biden. And given Trump’s support among both Blacks and Latinos hovers at around 29%, Kanye’s run isn’t so out there.
Kanye’s campaign also offers a fresh, more viable path for that party to proceed in the future untethered to either the corrupt corporate shills, or the opportunistic extremists who currently dominate it at the top. E.g., the small NC city of Asheville recently voted on adopting a plan to provide reparations for slavery. National Democrats hailed this for being a major act of progress on the issue, as Asheville had started a wave of momentum for reparations we haven’t seen since Obama first came into the White House. Oh, wait—there was no wave back then, no legislation passed at any level when Democrats had complete control of the government 10 years ago. Nor during the first two years of Clinton, when Democrats were also in complete control. This issue ONLY comes up three months before an election, to rile up the black vote, and to put pressure on Republicans. Not that many black voters will notice, if Trump brings this up. But they just might listen if Kanye does….
Problem, Principle, Solution, Transition
Even politically astute persons sometimes do not appreciate this educational function of certain candidacies and commentators, in delivering the case for a perspective to a mass audience. It’s literally one of the reasons for the success of FOX News, and similar entities who addressed a market (working class middle Americans) others had abandoned or shunned. The three weekday evening FOX shows, for example, follow a strategic pattern. Tucker Carlson presents as a middle of the road commentator (like O’Reilly before him) who engages the public like a rational evangelist, persuading them to embrace the pro-liberty view. Sean Hannity is more like a daily briefer who re-summarizes the best talking points of the right, and mainly speaks to the choir. Then Laura Ingraham caps primetime by introducing some “new ground” to the liberty-friendly position. It makes for an impressive total block of effective political communication, far more organized than what is thrown at us nightly by CNN or MSNBC.
Given the above, the best method of confronting the Karenazis is to induce pain, to cut through the paper pushed by the mob and the swamp. Summary Game Plan:
1- Launch 10,000 lawsuits across the states against the lawless mandates. Put together a national crowdsourcing campaign to fund the litigation. It should get somebody’s attention. Result, somebody loses in court, or else loses a lot of time and money litigating. Ouch!
2- Promote a major turnaround in the next 60 days, due to COVID cases fading, school re-starting, Durham making announcements and indictments, and polls switching from being based on registered voters to likely voters–all of which will tighten the race up. Result, Trump wins—double ouch!
3- Do as “Dutchman” or “Sundance” and others have stated at the Conservative Treehouse, and regularly message Congress and the media that we will NOT stand idle and buy it this time, if/when massive election fraud happens in November, while the media tells us to just accept it as a “fair and square” outcome. Result, the fraud in the system gets exposed, and lots of guilty people might even go to jail—triple ouch!!
Resist Google, Vaccination, and the “New Normal’
Join Dr. Ron Paul, and Europe in rejecting the plandemic tyranny. Answer the COVID crisis mongers with pre-March 2020 common sense, geared to appeal to the common man. Mr. Main Street guy is getting tired of being manipulated, and he’s tired of the goose-stepping guilt-trippers. If he’s NOT eating burgers, and he’s living a healthy lifestyle, he is NOT the reason why others are sickly. He has a right to dissent from being a limitless support system for others who already have morbidites of various kinds. Stop stealing his liberty by demanding he virtue signal that he must be forced to conform to the new health welfare of mask wearing. Off your knees.
Masks are for hospitals, which are specially ventilated to supply more oxygen, to make up for the oxygen loss that is documented to happen when wearing masks. OSHA staff are some of the people verifying this, which is why they have regulations designating spaces that dip below 19% atmospheric oxygen as a health hazard that can lead to brain damage. And yes, the campaign to mandate masks is hopelessly political. The MSM, and tech giants like Google, Twitter et al have been brutal in enforcing the dogma. “Wear masks, or you’re selfish,” or “don’t have a dissenting view about masks, or you’re anti-science, or not taking it seriously” are emotional political narratives designed to chill debate, intimidate everyone into conformity, and manipulate people into normalizing their use. Those are political outcomes, and those who disagree with such tactics are entitled to oppose them. Note the government is even conducting advanced clinical trials on how to further shame or guilt trip people into compliance.
One other anti-crisis action is to firmly reassert one’s own commitment to health freedom by way of pursuing natural immunity, instead of aquiescence to being forcibly drugged. Resist the proported vaccines being developed (that really may only neutralize a strain of COVID-19 that has already mutated). Some plans are already on the table to expand no-fly lists to include those who refuse to wear masks, or to introduce “COVID PASS” fare technology to restrict your liberty right to travel if you haven’t had your Bill Gates injection. Consider signing a conscientious objector or better, a medical consent/refusal form, such as the one discussed by Bill Sardi. If you are healthy, trust your body to develop natural antibodies against the bug, as it has for 99% of the population. It’s called freedom, or “our body, our choice.” Point out the CDC has admitted more people have died under the lockdown from suicide or drug overdoses than from COVID. Don’t buy the unending emotional blackmail rhetoric (“comply, or you’ll kill grandma!”) of the self-serving alarmist health Karenazis, who think everybody should be forced to follow their unilateral protocols indefinitely. To not wear a mask is to reclaim your face, and your liberty. If somebody is sickly or high risk. let them wear a mask, or stay home. Fight off the mandated mask marauders!
As for the violence-friendly protests led by Black Lives Matter (BLM), openly fight back by likewise exposing their true political intent. Yes, their goal was always to find a way to hurt the economy, without really doing so, and aggravate the public’s sense of there being a loss of stability. This has been done in order to undermine public support for Trump, and set up a way to engineer election fraud in key states. The Dems mainly want to take Florida (lost by one point in 2016) and take back the three midwestern states. But the big secret is the BLM/Antifa assault on the country is starting to peter out. The momentum is fading as the Floyd death becomes a memory and arrests for monument destruction go up.
End the riots the way the Rodney King riots really ended, namely, when the Korean business owners, whose South Central LA buildings were being torched, got firearms and took sniper positions on the roof. A few warnings (or warning shots) later, the rioters scrambled away—no more protests, end of problem. Hey, THE SECOND AMENDMENT WORKS. Also, combat the monument topplers, who do not respect the ideological diversity or self-identified heritage of different regions of the country, by catching them in their own contradictions (which can be painfully embarassing). Imagine Trump announcing “in response to the attacks on past American heritage, by executive order I am nationalizing Confederate Flag Day, the Arkansas law signed by Bill Clinton.” Liberal heads explode in 5, 4, 3, …
So, is there anybody else across all these blue states, with the money, time and will, to demand (under threat of starting a lawsuit) that their cities put up a counter street mural? The blue cities are likely lost, but it is easy to win a legal case for equal free speech, especially if done in federal courts where a straightforward constitutional case should prevail. Let BLM proceed with their painting plans, for example here in New York, IF they also permit Trump to paint “KEEP AMERICA GREAT” on the street next to Gracie Mansion, where the Mayor resides. Trump could even offer to pay for the paint and the laborers. If the Mayor refuses, sue him and NYC for not providing equal access for political speech (as Judicial Watch is preparing to do in DC).
There are other ways to legally fight back. It is illegal and actionable, for example, under the ADA to be denied equal access to a business if you have already said you have a medical condition. Even asking for details about that declared condition can be sufficient to produce a lawsuit. Walmart, Home Depot et al have had to walk back their announced mask mandates, in light of them being reminded of these litigation risks. Sadly, some cities and states are also creating fines for not wearing masks, or face diapers in public. The question is whether enough people will have the will to lawyer up to stop the mask shaming Karens, by taking them to court.
The path of litigation is much preferable to physically fighting another Revolution, especially considering the swamp is using the courts as one battle arena. It’s also harder for the media to negatively spin it as extremism if your victories are coming from the courts, including the Supreme Court of the US. That’s why the SCOTUS is one of the biggest battlegrounds. The issue for the SCOTUS swampers is ending the Trump presidency by running out the clock. Following one recent decision, Trump has to go back to DHS and get them to prepare a plan to end DACA that meets Justice John Roberts’ approval. For all practical purposes that can’t happen until after the election, and even then it will be months before the Court reviews the DACA plan again, which in turn will hold up the entire legislative reform of immigration, etc.
In effect, Roberts et al has invented a “Lawfare” judicial barrier to a conservative President getting anything done, even by EO. Anti -Trumpers will hyper-litigate and drag out each order in the courts for years, then the wrong kind of SCOTUS can rule “We don’t like the way you did this, start over.” But can Trump do the reverse, by creating an EO it will take future presidents years to reverse? If not, in this manner, Roberts has indeed gone full Lawfare. He has just given anti-Trumpers the green light to litigate every Trump policy into the ground, with the legal activists knowing there is a majority on the SCOTUS who may finally rule, “you didn’t cross every T in the admin process, so you can’t implement the policy, start over.” Any executive policy Obama wanted could be put into effect immediately, while everything Trump wants has to be subject to getting approved by a court process. The DACA decision runs out the clock on Trump doing anything on immigration reform with Congress until after the election, just like he can’t reform the Census process until after the election, can’t repeal Obamacare until after the election, etc, etc.
Overall, one of the biggest achievements of the Trump era is his tenanciousness in seeing all these legal battles through to a Supreme Court ruling (usually) in his favor. Upon re-election, Trump has four years of court victories at his back to support his policies, meaning he can now proceed to simply excecute them in a second term. The Lawfare crowd has burned through all their objections and legal maneuvers, so will not be able to block him for another entire term. And 200 conservative judicial appointments later, there are fewer and fewer liberal judges to block Trump’s EOs. Yet another reason why Dems are so desperate to get Trump out of there in November.
The Depth of the Rabbit Hole
The counter-resistance should also extend to continuing to expose the corruption of the would-be elite controllers, both recent past, and present. I believe ZeroHedge broke down some weeks ago how the Obama regime was extensively surveilling all the leading GOP candidates in 2015-2016, or even earlier, using the resources of CIA, FBI etc. When Trump clearly became the presumptive nominee by spring 2016, surveillance of his campaign was stepped up. This was all profoundly illegal, so to cover their tracks, they decided in mid 2016 to find cover to make it seem legal, using the FISA court process and Steele dossier. After Trump’s election, this process was rolled into a full coup attempt (by outgoing Obama/Biden staff and anti-Trump swamp loyalists) to oust the new President, in order to further the cover-up of Spygate. General Michael Flynn knows much about this and other Obama corruption, so that’s why they tried to entrap him and dirty him up, and have kept him under gag order by the judge. They don’t want the gag order lifted on Flynn, as they don’t want him talking before the election. They don’t want Flynn to be in position to sue anybody over this before the election, if ever. Ultimately, they wanted to get him stuck in jail so he could be swiftly Epsteined.
Flynn is already exonerated, minus the formality of the judge dismissing the case as he has been ordered to do. The main difference in the Stone case is ‘Judging Amy’ denied his motions to admit evidence of a corrupt process, or to make any arguments about the corrupt handling of his case, and put a gag order on Stone on top of that. The judge in the Flynn case did allow that, which is the main reason why his attorney Sydney Powell was able to dig up all the corruption evidence. If that had not been allowed, we STILL would not have known about how Flynn was set up, had been entrapped, etc.
The similar corruption involved in railroading Stone will not be known until he gets his second trial, and I expect it will be more massive than in the Flynn case. Judge Sullivan is trying to drag things out with Flynn (by now requesting a full appellate review) until past the election, like the rest of the swamp. It’ll be much harder to drag things out for four YEARS if Trump is reelected. Hence the frenzy we are seeing by the swamp to hold the lid down on their trash can through November 3. The hope, in whatever happens, is that the indictments to be announced before the election will be the first set of indictments, and that more of them (including counts against Obama) will be issued after the election. Barr and Durham are simply dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s to make sure they will be solid enough to prevent the slippery swamp weasels from getting out of them.
The heads of the Obama era CIA, DNI, FBI, and Crowdstrike have all stated under oath they found NO evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The Mueller probe concluded the same after 2 more years of investigating. Nonetheless, the coup plotters and their swamp acolytes have continued to try to to re-try Trump and his team over the phantom scandal, including the tainted presecutions of Flynn and Roger Stone. During a July 28 hearing, AG Barr was visibly more intense and irritated when answering questions about Stone, as he clearly had not taken Stone’s or Trump’s side as far as his arrest, indictment or conviction goes. Yet the Dems still accused Barr of bias. Tells you what you need to know about their intentions—which are to ruin anybody who even partially supported Trump and his allies.
Compare the drummed up process prosecutions of Russiagate to the scandals of yesteryear. I’m old enough to remember Clinton was found to have lied to two different judges besides the Special Prosecutor Ken Starr, then was held in contempt and disbarred. Real crimes, not just process. But in the case of the Clintons, past and present, the Deep State cleans up after its own. The Special Prosecutor was a swamper who tried hard to cover up for Clinton on Whitewater (for example, his lead investigator found evidence of a second bullet wound to Vince Foster from a different caliber gun, but covered it up anyway). There were over 40 different Clinton scandals at that time, by his White House’s own count (as reported when I ran as the LP candidate against against Hillary for Senate in 2000). Starr used a vacuum to scoop up all the evidence on each of those fronts, to send then down into the black hole called his “investigation,” precisely in order to cover it up. He was accused of exactly this by several of his investigator team members, and the media buried that info too. There was so much slime, no wonder it took 6 years. That tradition of elite cover-up continues to the Epstein/Maxwell scandals of today.
Prosecute Soros and the Coup Elite
In light of more people exposing the legal money laundering op BLM has been doing for the DNC via Act Blue, it has deftly switched its funnel to the Tides Foundation, yet another organ controlled by the Soros network. This may not be the last time the funding ball bounces from one Soros entity to another. Whatever the funding sources or pathway, SOMEBODY on the RECEIVING end at the DNC is making decisions about who the collected money gets disbursed to. The Trump DOJ should start a probe, and the (supposedly) GOP-run Senate should run hearings to investigate how this prominent loophole to the campaign finance laws operates, and exactly who these recipients are.
BLM and Antifa have been so noisy and visible in its mayhem that it has drawn lots of attention to its financial machinations and connections. Their criminal actions may be converted into prosecutions that include putting Soros in the crosshairs as an accessory, in ways he and they can’t wiggle out from. As a theatrical gesture, for now, I suggest people print out a picture of Soros, with the news headline about his pouring 220 million into BLM, and put it in your pocket. If you then run into a discussion with somebody about the BLM activists, you can take out the pix and point out that the true face of Black Lives Matter, is that of a white Hungarian fat cat.
Antifa is being treated as a domestic terrorist organization by the US, in lieu of there being controversy as to whether they can be legally declared as such. It’s actually a good thing that it’s problematic to label a domestic political group “terrorist” with the same ease as when we designate foreign based entities as such. Otherwise, imagine how the Democrats, if back in full control of Congress or the White House, would categorize all manner of conservative groups as “terrorists.” What Project Veritas has now done is establish a money trail from Soros to the violent rioters, which is enough to get him indicted for aiding and abetting them individually in terrorist activity. This means he or any Soros Europe-based org can now be legally declared a foreign terrorist, and other orgs he has helped in the US can be investigated as connected to foreign based terrorism. Long way around, but we got him.
Barack Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro (you know, the guy who says he’s from Hawaii, but has a Connecticut SSN), like Soros, ultimately answers to the Deep State, and his operations should be the next overlord regime to be exposed. On the constitutional surface, “advisor” Valerie Jarrett was a surrogate of Obama, and Obama was the top dog. In terms of the Deep State structure, however, it seems more clear O was/is a middle manager, while Jarrett was/is his handler and superior. Jarrett was the architect of Spygate under orders from chief swamper John Brennan, and O is the functionary who carried it out. Jarrett notably evaded or failed to answer directly questions about this very issue, when recently interviewed. It would be nice, following John Durham’s announcement of his findings, if umpteen people were indicted on multiple counts, and O was named as an unindicted co-conspirator on most of the counts. People could then count up all the counts O was NOT being indicted on, and go “wow…” If that happens, I believe the wait will have been worth it. One caveat is, after all this time, any indictments announced ought to be airtight, given the amount of time Durham has had to prepare them.
Before the declassification and court victories by advocacy groups like Judicial Watch, many of these disclosures were only exposed by means of discussions by the Q movement, a group that has for years openly gone over coded questions posted by a certain insider person or group (General Flynn, perhaps?) who hints that legal doomsday is coming for the coup plotters. Those Deep State operators, inevitably, have been trying to infiltrate Q from the beginning, and poison pill it with anti-semitic, or false white hat messages. Then to cover their tracks, they are making it look like the bad messaging is coming from Russians. But why is there all this negative attention and massive censorship of QAnon, if it’s just a secretive kookoo outlier cult, or misinformation operation? Perhaps, to deflect from the reality that it’s not.
Q, based on the large number of confirmed predictions or “Q proofs,” has consistently been providing overall good info, allowing people to collectively judge it as such, by having them research and openly discuss the questions it raises for themselves. That is the opposite of secrecy. The attempt to smear it as unreliable is the psyop, easily playing on the egos of armchair would-be debunkers, who only trust corporate sources of information. The MSM despises QAnon and has repeatedly tried to deeply bury it since 2017, precisely because they can’t control it. In fact, the swamp’s relentless attack pattern to discredit Q (associate it with extremist groups) follows the exact same pattern they used on the Tea Party, and most recently on alternative social media. How about we review its assertions directly by ourselves, instead of having to wade through hundreds of hit pieces in the search results to find a pro-Q source? Why not Trust Trump, as Q has often advised, in that he may have sleeper supporters of his own, that look like they are swampers, but are in the end loyal to Trump? That’s been the point behind Q’s suggestion to also trust Trump surrogates, and to not be surprised if it turns out some of them were pretending to be Deep Staters on his behalf. 4-D chess, and all that.
Hack #3—Call Out the GOP Version of “Well, the Other Guy’s Worse”
This is a campaign between a Democratic establishment candidate hiding in the basement, versus a Republican establishment hiding in the basement. The RINOs and Never Trumpers in DC, and in particular in the US Senate, have been no-shows in assisting the President in implementing policies or fighting the media’s relentless attempts at dominating the narrative. And even so-called ‘freedom conservatives’ have often come up short in fighting these battles, and so must also be called out. Look at the evasions of one such animal, blaming Democrats for Republican failures to make progress:
Jordan has an abrasive style of confronting the swamp that reminds many of Trump, and he has been admired by many of those supporters as a possible successor to him in future cycles. But he has taken money from Google, et al social media special interests. So if even the best or most effective of conservatives is sucking off the teat of the tech giants, exactly what is going to change? Exactly what is he going to do in the last months of the 2020 election campaign that will meaningfully effect the outcome? That’s what Tucker (and Lucas) wanted to know in this exchange, as do I.
Hack #4—Shut the Window
The last hack, if followed in conjunction with the above, can transition us not only back to true normal, but also to the smaller, minimal state that best maximizes liberty. If mob radicals can try to move the mainstream window in their direction, constitutionalists can put up a scrap to move it the other way, or even shut the window to keep the destructive propaganda out. I’ve already suggested leaving behind both the mainstream media (MSM) and the newer tech giants of social media, who are pushing the same dogmas and cultural cancelmania. But what about mainstream academia, and its entry level source of indoctrination, public (AKA government) schools? Well, we can piggy back on the recent lockdown and riots to find a better way:
Steer Education Back to Private, and Steer Defund Rhetoric to Smaller Government
As I said about Congresswoman AOC’s rhetorical call for eliminating ICE, as a matter strictly of viewing eliminating bureaucracies as a good thing, a libertarian could actually support transferring the legitimate role of law enforcement in protecting citizens to other entities that could do the job. A libertarian version of “defunding the police” would be to transfer law enforcement duties to sheriffs and US Marshalls wherever that was logistically possible around the US. Where extreme population densities make that impossible, don’t defund or eliminate police forces, as sometimes, when a deputy discovers an MS-13 headquarters, Andy Taylor and Barney Fife just won’t be able to cut it, simple as that.
But the bigger prize of the last few months has been the inadvertant experiment the mass public has had with home schooling their children during the COVID lockdown. The experiment has allowed us to see both the benefits and problems of not leaning on the government schools, such as 1) yes, people have found they can make arrangements to get things done to manage their kids’ home education, and 2) online learning is not the bed of high tech roses its advocates often make it out to be. It turns out teaching and studying at home requires discipline and commitment, that the mere availability of a TV or computer screen by itself may not provide. But big picture, most found they can do it. Going forward, based on this concrete “withdrawal experience” America has just had living without public schools, they can more readily engage the libertarian concept of leaving the government-run education racket behind.
2020 Electoral Map and Predictions
You may note the adjoining US electoral map is the same one I posted at this time exactly four years ago (August 3, 2016), when I projected Trump would win by at least 289 electoral votes. The only states I got wrong were Wisconsin (I thought Hillary would squeak it out) and Utah, which I called for the LP’s Gary Johnson since he was actually leading or competitive in that state at that point. This time I am predicting basically the same map outcome, but Utah goes Trump, and I have the same call for the big three midwest swing states (Trump will win at least 2 out of 3 of them). I won’t be surprised if he comes out with over 300 electoral votes.
To Dems, all that matters is winning Florida (lost by 1% in 2016) and at least two of the midwestern states Hillary lost in 2016, that Democrats otherwise “always win” (such as Michigan, which Trump won by just 18,000 votes). They believe that’s doable, or the easiest points to manufacture enough election fraud to get the 270+ electoral vote result they want. So they are not neglecting the midwest this time, and hope they can hold the line everywhere else. Wall St., the financial arm of the Deep State, is showering the Dems with cash to ensure this result. The wild cards are new or additional “surprise battleground states” that should emerge for Trump, just like last time.
The current fallacious polling echoes 2016, and has been part of the mousetrap process—use of inaccurate survey methodology to demoralize the Trump support base, to discourage it from turning out, and to set up confirmation of the false numbers via election fraud (courtesy of an expanded mail-in vote, where “extra votes” can be generated on demand). Like four years ago, the polls before Labor Day are badly sampled, weakly screened (registered voters) and therefore meaningless. Only the polls in the fall, screened for likely voters who are actually paying attention, are the polls that matter. And by then, the Durham findings (including indictments) will also be out. so I fully expect a turnaround in a few weeks (against the swamp establishment forces) in the polls, and the same result for the outsider trend in November as in 2016, namely victory.
As the unending attempts to topple populist liberty have drastically devolved from shampeachment, to a failed plannedemic, now to laugh riots over the course of the lockdown months, all I see are traps set by various plotters, including some that have been exposed, and others that have backfired in spectacular fashion upon their perpetrators. So many such plots, in fact, that I’ll have to take two shots at this apple, to make a pie.
All the traps accomplished, in the end, has been to further unravel the credibility and fatally expose the machinations of the Deep State, as it flails about to desperately avoid the doomsday coming to the elite establishment in November. Recent polls that sample likely voters show Trump ahead in 10 battleground states as of this writing—motivating the trappers to stay even more busy. One conspicuous example of the attempt to box-in Trump has been the negligent handling of a crime explosion (by numerous big-city Mayors) following the race-based “protests” of the last two months. Attempts by the President to offer additional personnel to help stop or curb the discord (that has totalled $1.4 Billion in property damage, over 10,000 arrested, and over 700 injuries or deaths to police officers, and non-violent bystanders) have been designated as “fomenting violence” by “Trump the tyrant” (according to these Mayors, and especially by House Speaker Nancy ‘Nazi’ Pelosi).
Nazi’s comment was a canned response that leading Democrats were ALWAYS planning to launch, upon Trump bringing in federal law enforcement or troops. Portland (among other cities) has been under riot seige for weeks, but if Trump had waited months before he acted, they would have still spun it as a reckless Nazi move on his part. Trump was wise to have kept his powder dry. He may have been using Portland as a test case to confirm this theory about what bad narrative the swamp would roll out about his taking action.
Here’s one famous movie example of how traps (in this case a slew of Venus fly traps) can come around to grimly do in the smuggest of bullies and authoritarians, if you can handle the horror elements:
Covid Ops, & Racist Props: the Double Mousetrap
By far, the most successful trap laid for the populist movement has been the Virus FlyTrap, constructed and expanded to emotionally shame us into ongoing, indeed indefinite, no-back-talk compliance with undemocratic decrees from the Health Authoritarians, and other control freaks. They took a temporary advisory put out by the White House in March that was only supposed to last 2-3 weeks, and turned it into an “endless march” into mandated servitude to support “slowing the spread,” a crusade that has now been extended until a vaccine is concocted. Anytime anybody pushes against the standard COVID narrative, they’re accused of “not taking the outbreak seriously.” Some commentators like Trish Regan of FOX Business got canned for suggesting there were politics or unseen entities behind the plannedemic, or “crisis” push. It’s been a few tough months, for speaking the unguarded truth.
The “where’s your mask” social shaming has been specifically as vile as it gets, as a healthy 99% of the public has been unconstitutionally commanded to wear this germophobic totem if they dare to get out more. It acts to signify their obedience to a “new norm,” to supposedly protect the mere 1% at actual high risk of death, due to their own pre-existing health issues. The only masks unreconstructed, truly pro-liberty people should consider as “must wear” are Guy Fawkes/V for Vendetta masks. I suggest, people should get inside more, and read up on the informed dissent on the virus madness, including research from Ivy League trained doctors.
The internet still stands for freedom and dissent, if you take a few minutes to look around it—but I can’t hyperlink everything. Do a DuckDuckGo search for well-reasoned, non-emotionally manipulative articles like the following: ‘Observing Elites Manipulate Our Fear: COVID-19, Propaganda and Knowledge’, ‘Corona: creating the illusion of a pandemic through diagnostic tests’, ‘12 Experts Questioning the Coronavirus Panic’, ‘Can We Trust the WHO?’, ‘How deadly is the coronavirus? It’s still far from clear’, ‘Perspectives on the Pandemic II: A Conversation with Dr. Knut Wittkowski,’ and many more. Also check out Laura Ingraham’s excellent video commentaries on the dubious “science” and legality of mask mandates.
The parties pushing the plannedemic are not “unseen entities.” They are quite visible “global reset” promoters like Bill Gates (who has a heavy financial investment in the vaccine drugs in development), Dr. “it’s always getting worse!” Anthony Fauci, or WHO executives (funded by China, and a certain Hungarian billionaire, etc). Most of this set covered up the extent of the outbreak in China, and pushed conflicting messages about the virus to make leaders like Trump look bad, as well as set him up to not be re-elected. Let people be free to get a second medical opinion about masks and distancing, and to follow that advice at their own risk or benefit. You do NOT have an open-ended obligation to be a support system for somebody else’s failing health condition—if they are high risk, let them wear a mask, and stay home. Introducing force on everybody else (via health decrees that may have no basis in law, in the first place) is not the way to solve this, or any other problem. So I think, your body, your choice, as they say on other issues.
When Trump started to “re-open” months ago, he should have appointed a seperate team of virus experts who were also pro-economic relaunch, to act as a respected “second opinion” to Dr. Fauci and Dr Birx (also known as, ‘Falsy and Scarfy’). Then he would have been able to dump the first team without the swamp labeling him as “ignoring the scientists” or acting recklessly. Right now we seem to be stuck with Fauci as our top “authority” for staying shut down. But Scarfy and Falsy do give Trump great left cover, for having a role of only temporary importance. Each time the swamp has tried to mount the narrative that Trump is not following the advice of the experts, he dispatches the two to go up to the microphone and admit Trump is constantly consulting them, and heeding their advice. Stops the drumbeat every time.
In sum, the swamp took advantage of the virus outbreak and lockdown precisely because 1) it temporarily damaged the economy, so Trump couldn’t use it as an issue, and 2) it made holding mass events more complicated, so they could argue Trump shouldn’t hold rallies. Put together, it was designed to mousetrap the President into a no-win situation where, no matter what he did, his response would be characterized as a fail, and allow Speaker Nancy Pelosi to declare the whole outbreak as “the Trump virus.” Okay, GOP, you control the Senate. Nazi Pelosi has spoken, now it’s your turn. So when are the Senate hearings planned, to investigate the true origins of the virus outbreak, the actual facts about how accurate the tests are, and China’s role in the coverup?
These machinations have blunted overt support for Trump (as designed) to the point where the very existence of a winning coalition has been described in terms of “secret voters,” if they remain there at all. But meanwhile, the swamp’s strategy will prove increasingly untenable, as more and more of the country returns to a normal routine through the rest of the summer. The remaining lockdowns will look more and more out of place, unjustified, tyrannical and excessive compared to most of the states. Eventually the lockdown protocol will be perceived everywhere as an overreaction to the pandemic. The next 3-4 weeks will be crucial, as the spate of COVID infections subsides, and everybody gets a sense of “all clear” as of mid to latter August (at that point COVID will be ‘over,’ at least according to this Stanford professor, with a degree from Cambridge). When Trump then starts to hold rallies again en masse, and it becomes clear again that he can get thousands to show up for him on short notice everywhere around the country, talk about his “secret voters” will simply go away.
The Race to Race Politics
Despite its domination of our way of life since March, even the Lockdown hasn’t toppled Trump, soooo, back to fomenting race riots. The protests seemed to start up as if on queue, with the single police brutality incident involving a white cop (lethally) putting his knee on suspect George Floyd in Minneapolis. I wouldn’t be surprised if the suspect cop himself was paid off to set this in motion (somebody, please check his, or his family’s bank accounts). Upon catastrophic damage resulting from protests over this, the trap seems to have been for the swamp Mayors to plead for Trump to come in with troops, then blame any “Kent State” violence that results from that on him. The President’s response has been in effect blunt. “Don’t pass the buck and dump this mess in my lap. The voters hired you to deal with your city. I’m a remote back-up from Washington, but I am prepared to send in the National Guard, troops and other personnel if you can’t do your job.” When Trump didn’t get lured into the trap, the Mayors took the opposite track, and now say they don’t want the feds to come in, and “worsen the problem.” The incident pattern nonetheless served as the pretext for the avalanche of protests, riots, statue-toppling and street murals that rapidly rolled out thereafter—again, as if on queue, to garner black votes.
Or put another way: 5-6% of the black vote from 2008/2012 stayed home in 2016. This allowed Trump to win several close state races. The Dems are desperate to get that vote to come back out in 2020, so they have been trying to smoke them out with race riots, and four years of “Trump is racist” rhetoric. When Biden invoked the epithet by calling him the first racist President, he apparently forgot about the 12 prior Presidents who clearly pushed racist statements or policies. Did the swamp actually think Hillary was entitled to every black vote her husband got? Did they not realize Hillary was simply less appealing to black voters than Obama, and so she should be happy Dems got even 88% of their vote last time? And do they not realize they only got 88% of that vote despite Michelle, Barack, Hillary, Bill and the entire media all heavily campaigning and pushing for Hillary in 2016?
“Black Lives Matter” the saying or motto, is a widely popular and unifying sentiment, but BLM the organization is basically a psyop, and a confusing one at that, since several of their utterances sound identical to that of the KKK. This professional left, Marxist or Communist activist group has appropriated the BLM phrase for decidedly divisive and chaotic purposes. And yet, the fundraising page on its website serves as a fundraising pump for Act Blue, which uses such groups to legally launder money (including donations from overseas) to the Democratic National Committee, for distribution to various mainstream Democratic candidacies and groups. What is sorely needed are more exposes by Veritas, or Judicial Watch of the funding sources of both Antifa and Black Lives Matter, that show these protest events have a common major benefactor (Soros, DNC, Gates or whomever). This would prove that the “peaceful” group was in fact acting as cover for the violent group, as per a plan coordinated by the same mega donor bosses. It would be particularly sweet if the Mr. Untouchables (billionaires Soros, Steyer, Gates) were duly exposed by such a probe, as the difficulty with going after fat cats like Soros has always been, who’s going to investigate and prosecute him? His bought and paid for DAs? His bought and paid for politicians? We will soon find out.
At any rate, the research data should put an end to the wholesale defamation of the voting electorate that produced the populist, outsider victories of 2016. According to the Wikipedia articles on the KKK and neo-Nazis, there are only about 3,000-6,000 white supremacists in the US, in total (depending on whether you believe the ADL’s or the SPLC’s estimates). There is no reason for a country of 330 million people to be paranoid about the influence of 6,000 people. Small wonder then, that Dems have tried to get a new round of sex smears against Trump and other non-liberals ready in the batter’s box, just in case the small amount of actual racists around gets more widely exposed.
Those small numbers can in no way be controlling the entire base right of the US, any more than Antifa controls the entire left. It is another hilarious baiting attempt by white left propagandists who are racially smearing half of the country, in order to scare black voters back into coming out to vote for Democrats in November. And they do this every four years. Their demagogic scramble reached its pinnacle by spring, when Biden famously declared to his presumably kept plantation that “if you don’t vote for me, then you ain’t black.” This has naturally angered more than a few independent-minded black progressives (warning, some bad language):
The end goal of the Dem leadership is to resolve the race/gender issues of campaign 2020 they have themselves stoked by having Biden appoint either Hillary or (perhaps more likely, Michelle Obama) as his running mate. Which means if Biden picks her and wins, Michelle will be the acting President, serving the ‘CEO’ way Dick Cheney did for GWB. Which also means, Barack will be the actual President, serving through his proxy wife. The Clintons and the Obamas have been fighting for dominant control of the Democratic party since 2008, and this will finally resolve the matter. Look for Biden to then resign in February or March 2023, just past two years into office, so Michelle can then serve through 2024, and be eligible to run in both 2024 and 2028, for ten years as President. H A Goodman is perpetually going even further, and claims Biden will drop out of the race in 2020, to be replaced by Hillary. Eeeeww.
So it always is with major party politicians and the black or female vote, with former always virtue signalling to the latter. And this is as true of the GOP as it is of the Dems. E,g., when the Charleston Church shootings happened, certain craven, unprincipled Swamp Republicans like then Gov. Nikki Haley (along with Mitt Romney) were the first to cave when the cultural left authoritarians used the tragedy to start the drumbeat to take down the Confederate flag. She caved almost immediately, just as she would cave to the current Philistines, who are clamoring to take down monuments to figures who had nothing to do with the Civil War. The only thing neocons like Haley will hold fast and firm on is pushing for more military intervention, and a default confrontational approach towards any country not in lockstep alliance with the US. To most such hack pols, the point is to ride whatever emotional wave will keep them in a position of power or influence.
As the BLM protest stunts have shown, a little anarchy can disrupt this two-party virtue strip dance. But what if the street theatre went both ways? Imagine if a team of people literally started dropping blue “paint bombs” (in support of reasonable law enforcement) on the BLM street murals. Half a dozen folks controlling drones, that can release blue paint over the mural (or at least over the word black) in the middle of the night, might be all that’s needed to change the message, and the narrative. Then watch the gasps of outrage from the other side—“Omigosh, they’re destroying property, distorting OUR message, and violating legal procedures! Rule of Law! Oh the humanity! These peasants must be ruled, by our law.”
Such anarchy activism will require the emergence of some conscientious objectors who act as populist martys fighting PC bullies, who do so to expose (by their arrest and condemnation) the selective punishment afforded to those who deface “public property” in a way that displeases both the mob, and the Total State. As I posted five years ago, “…the whole “rule of law” canard is a one-way scam to pistol whip and punish the cultural right, but never, ever, the PC factions for stressing states rights, [and] is part of what is fueling a rebellion by the “little people” against the whole establishment racket, as displayed in the current Presidential primary season.”
MeToo & Collusion Voodoo: The Twin Towers Collapse
It took long enough, but with no new investigations of Trump going on (to be used to charge him with obstruction if he interfered), it seems we are finally getting the declass. And it’s exposing everything we always expected it would. The disclosures in mid spring disposed of the Russian collusion accusations even more thoroughly than it already had been before, leading to the exonoration of set up targets Lt. General Michael Flynn, and even more recently justified the full commutation afforded to political operator Roger Stone. The final collapse of the witchhunt paralleled the inability of the swamp to re-crank up sex charges against selected populists, since any such new smear campaign would revive the issue of Biden’s inappropriate behavior with children, as well as the Tara Reade assault allegations he barely escaped scrutiny over. The twin towers of scandal mongering have indeed collapsed.
Fun and games. It was revealed Flynn was set-up for entrapment even after FBI agents had concluded he had done nothing improper (a conclusion that was overruled by the 7th Floor at the FBI (i.e., Strzok, McCabe, Comey). It now appears, for example, a certain ‘Agent Doe’ who was monitoring MI6 agent Chrisopher Steele as he assembled the famous Russian sex dossier, was set-up to be a “show handler” for Steele, who had his own separate supervision coming from elsewhere in the Deep State. So IF anybody asked about this later, Steele or the op (from the “official” handler side) would look as clean as a whistle. But who’s minding this store? Who approved of lying to a federal FISA judge, entrapping people, using an opposition candidate research document as if it was credible intel, fraudulently submitting it in court as evidence, etc? As Mark Levin has noted, we’re supposed to believe there was a rogue FBI, a rogue DOJ, a rogue CIA, etc, etc where these things were going on, but Obama was no where to be seen, not in charge, not overseeing, or receiving briefings on any of this?
It’s more accurate to suppose he and Biden were approving the corruption, just as declassified notes from his White House in its final weeks have revealed. Moveover, the flow of the events indicate Obama was quite used to clandestine smear ops by intel staff to destroy his opponents, and to puff himself up. I get the impression OBarry was, and is, a CIA swamp functionary, who had his paperwork massaged to build him into the shell figure they needed to get full control of the White House. He is a middle manager at best in the Deep State scheme of things, not a top dog, regardless of the official title he held. O’s handler, John Brennan, is probably the real honcho who called the shots in Russiagate, including picking who to set up and ruin. O just carried out the swamp’s scheme.
This election is a battle not between Democrats and Republicans, but between the populist outsiders who gained a measure of power in 2016, versus the swamp authoritarians who want it back ASAP. In that light past and present attempts to oust elected Presidents are not new, or isolated outrages. E.g., Watergate was a coup plot led by White House Counsel John Dean (a swamper seeking revenge over Nixon for removing Hoover at the FBI). Dean mousetrapped Nixon out of office by first orchestrating the break-in, then advised the President to cover up the Administration’s connection to it. This made it easy for he and Felt to then leak info the press, and eventually to testify at hearings about the coverup he himself had fomented. It didn’t start with Obamagate. The swamp wants to box or mousetrap itself into permanent control, at all times, and it is furious the Trump exception ever happened.
There Goes the Judge
In the case of the Supreme Court, it’s the same as it ever was. Four years ago, we had 4.5 conservative justices (four consistent, and one swing vote), 4.5 liberal justices, with 3-5 justices at the point of retiring, and today, it’s basically the same deal. The next elected President will be in position to nominate several justices, and pivot the balance of the court for generations. Lost in all the events of June, the Supreme Court also cleared former NJ Governor Christie over the Bridgegate matter in a 9-0 decision. It appears many up and coming GOP figures in the tri-state metro area “coincidentally” got targeted for Flynn-style set-up investigations by Obama-era prosecutors.
In the crucial latter June SCOTUS rulings, Trump appeared to win most of the key decisions (except the obligatory social liberal activism, with the gay special rights ruling). This includes the “do it over” decision regarding Trump’s repeal of Obama’s DACA executive order—it only delays Trump’s winning on the issue later, while temporarily pleasing his daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner. While Jarvanka’s influence is part of it, the real point of his new DACA proposal is to reposition Trump’s immigration strategy in light of the SCOTUS decision. Following a court victory he was going to take the end of the DACA EO to use it as leverage in the battle to get full immigration reform. Without it he has to change the plan, by partially embracing the DACAs, but defining the treatment of them falling along the lines of his reform.
The Swamp Congress and judges want to run out the clock on the Trump adminstration, in order to swiftly junk his EOs, but it increasingly appears the Donald will escape the mousetrap by prevailing in November. So the Dems will still have to contend with addressing full legislative reform on immigration, both to defeat his policy, and to head off a deeper defeat later, when he re-submits the repeal of the DACA EO in a way that SCOTUS accepts.
Social Media Distancing
The “tech giants”—Facebook, Twitter, Google/YouTube, Amazon etc, have also tried to box in Trump. The harshest way they have taken to do this has been to ban, shadow ban, strike, or “demonetize” sites or accounts not to their liking, 95% of which “just happen” to be pro-Trump. The plan is, to ensnare even highly regarded right leaning sites or channels (like the Federalist) into their “you violated our commuunity standards” policy traps, and thereby deprive voters from hearing alternative voices, right at election time. The giants feel like they can get away with this due to certain regulations, and because they have much of Congress essentially bought and paid for.
The Federalist people should have seen it coming. The censors got rid of the sharper and smaller alternative sources first, so now they are looking at the bigger fish to fry. If the new Big Corporate had its way, everybody online would be just talking about viral cat pictures or food choices, and nothing that could challenge the current order. The larger right sites should have pushed back when the tech giants went after Milo or Alex Jones. The “public square” or platform status of the tech giants means the companies cannot act as publishers or editors, period. The government (Communications Decency Act, section 230) gave them “public platform” status, so under that status it can tell them to stop acting as publishers, i.e. stop censoring or shadow banning political speech.
The entire “it’s a private sector company” argument is pseudo-libertarian misdirection, as the issue is the abuse of their public platform status, which subjects them to government regulation and shields them from liability. With the stroke of a pen, Trump could, by executive order, suspend the tech giants’ CDA section 230 protections from liability, pending a formal investigation of their political bias, and election interference. Then those giants could finally be brought to heel. If these firms don’t like the regulatory framework, they should call for the repeal of CDA altogether (i.e., less regulation, the cleanest libertarian solution), then resolve to be the publishers they have already acted as, and thereby accept the same libel or liability risks of any other online publisher.
While we’re at it ridding ourselves of nonsense or over-protected tech platforms like Falsebook and Twatter, let’s support alternative platforms like Parler, Minds, and Bitchute, which permit its contributors to publish and monetize their content. Platforms like Gab now get much of its revenue from Bitcoin, direct bank transfer payments and other methods that bypass the corporate/deep state gestapo. This then circumvents one of the main tactics used to “cancel” dissent and alternative culture. When they tried to shut down Wikileaks, for example, they also sought to disable Assange’s Visa and Mastercard accounts. It’s Mark of the Beast time.
Jo Jo to the Rescue?
These events have been the backdrop for the mighty response of the Libertarian Party, which has been (emphasis on forward-looking, or on ‘has been’?) to nominate Clemson University Professor of Psychology Jo Jorgensen as its 2020 candidate for President. My brief comment about her (for now) is that while she will ably represent the standard Libertarian vision for the country as party members understand it and our principles, she does not have it in her to effectively confront the political establishment (AKA, the cult of the omnipotent state) and the media obstacles put up to marginalize, box-in, or block alternative candidates. Her story:
The problem (as I have identified before) is Libertarians most often want to play patty-cake with the so-called mainstream powers that be, while that establishment always plays for keeps (just ask the late Mr. Epstein, for example). Worse, our candidates (with inspiring exceptions such as freedom warriors like Adam Kokesh) have never appreciated the achievement of outsiders in showing what it takes to confront the enemy. Listen to her summary dismissal of Trump’s first four years, and his supporters:
“I would tell them, you voted last time, sometimes for the first time or first time in 20 years, because you were tired of the same old politicians and wanted something different. But he got into office and acted like all the others. He said he’d cut government size and instead it’s bigger; he said he’d get rid of the deficit and he’s going in the other direction. You wanted something new and [a Libertarian] is something new, not just another big government spender.”
This is a critique of Trump as per whether his views are coherently libertarian (which they are not), without a reference to how well he’s combatted the institutional barriers to liberty. On that front, there have been many victories. This is also another way of saying, Jorgensen herself has no plan for dealing with fighting the statist establishment, and worse, does not recognize that there is a fight to be fought. How will liberty prevail without Jo having a strategy for that? Does she have a plan to reach working class voters? A way to overcome a media blackout? Or money in the hundreds of millions, to fight the blackout? Does she understand Trump made some progress on these fronts? And so on–I’ll review more of Jo’s campaign in the next post. But at first glance I’d say: Get back, Jo Jo, to Clemson Universary, get back to where you once belonged.
As the Election Clock Flaps, Flips and Flops
The next few months until election day will be a race to see who brings down who first. The swamp wants to get rid of Trump in the election, so they can shut down all the investigations of the FISA abuse, whistleblower process abuse, etc before the culprits go to trial. I’m thinking Trump will beat them to it by timing the announcement of prosecutions for late summer or early fall, exposing and enumerating their crimes for all to see during the campaign. Rasmussen just came out with a poll (once again, based on likely voters, not merely registered people) showing it’s more like Trump and Biden are within the margin of error. Rasmussen (down the stretch in October) was one of the only polls in 2016 that were accurate in this regard, so I’d trust them over the swamp polls this time as well.
We already see his timing at work by the news about firing Deep State controlled attorneys and Inspectors Generals (Atkinson, et al), and re-taking control of the COVID-19 coverage by resuming the daily briefings, or by strategically commuting the sentence of Roger Stone to late on a Friday night, which limited the impact of critical reaction by the liberal media. The usual suspects can complain all they want, the regular public isn’t paying attention to a weekend commutation or firing. Perhaps Trump is telling them “this is what you get” for talking about starting up yet another partisan weaponized investigation against him (now over his handling of the outbreak), and that he won’t be bullied.
The other side has not been idle. Certified Deep Staters (Republican division) like Rep. Liz Cheney are also said to be working quietly to remove Freedom Caucus conservatives from positions of influence. Neocons/RINOs are never content to just have a voice in politics, they are always trying to purge everybody else. She’s just another cog in the wheel of the GOP-swamp plan of waiting to fully take back over DC if Trump loses, and to resume control as if nothing happened. It’s all about the next three months, all of swamp DC is waiting out Trump in order to get back to “swamp normal” after his defeat. Then the RINOs won’t have to cooperate with the build-a-wall deplorabes and populists anymore. Senator Turtle (Mitch McConnell) knows if he helps too many Trumpites win Senate seats, they might vote him out as Majority Leader. Can’t have that!
The same applies to the swamp dominated bureaucracy. Even after four years, it’s STILL not Trump’s DOJ or FBI, it’s the swamp’s DOJ/FBI—slow walking data and probes on Seth Rich and the Clinton emails for four years, and counting, to cite just one example. Given the corrupt state of the DC courts, DOJ, etc, most of the guilty parties would be acquitted if they were indicted before this point, thus what would have been the point of prosecuting them? So in the meantime, part of Trump’s next best approach has been to let the swamp fully expose themselves, from the coup plotters to the MSM, to Bolton to Fauci, then get them removed from power. It has not been a mistake free operation, but it has been working.
A man with a normal ego would have been crushed long ago, by all the relentless pressure the Deep State has put upon him. For better or worse, as I have urged for years, to get an agenda that rolls in at least a thematically pro-liberty direction given this environment, we need an occupant of the White House who has a super ego. So we should be very happy about having such a super alpha as President, and hope his strength and will power can hang on through the election in his defiance of the swamp. Considering we are just a few days past when we were wondering if Trump would have the heart and soul to commute Stone’s sentence, I suggest we should heed the counsel of several pastors that Trump is the real deal, as far as being one of God’s tools for saving this nation is concerned. Let’s pray for him daily until Election day, and God will take care of the rest—as will I for now, until part 2.
As the country drifts towards the start of spring, “March Madness” in 2020 has taken on a distinctly different meaning than an annual hoops tournament. A cascade of “doom” events, or portents of same, are roaming the landscape simultaneously, like the slouching “what rough beast” Dylan Thomas talked about a century ago. The beast moved so slow, it seems, it has only gotten to us now. Hopefully you have all the time in the world to read through this, given the recent shutdown woes imposed upon our entire society by our benevolent masters. But anyway:
Of course, the big political story of the primaries has been how Creepy, head sniffing, early stage Dementia Joe Biden was somehow revived, just in time, to regain the aura of ‘inevitability’ he had totally lost by the time the actual primary contests started. Biden’s fall was perfectly natural, given his age, his inability to excite the crowds at campaign stops, his failing to even place well in key early states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and his torrent of strange gaffes and very odd actions. Yet, like a miracle, a Weekend at Biden’s moment happened, and with the Creepster firmly held up on each side by the national media and the Democratic Central Command, they dragged his carcass across the finish line, or across the Jordan of Super Tuesday, back to the blessed land of frontrunner milk and honey.
So what happened? In two words: Bernie Sanders. The radical Senator from Vermont, despite not being a registered Democrat, or having national level endorsements, or much of anything else except a loyal following by progressives within the Democratic grassroots, managed to keep that faction unified enough to lead in the initial states, giving him strong momentum to win most of the Super Tuesday states. This poised Bernie to be the party’s nominee for President in 2020, which would put all candidates downstream of that ticket (especially those running in Trump-friendly districts) in the position of having to defend 1) the party voting to impeach Trump, 2) the party not having an answer as to why the economy soared under Trump, and 3) the socialist policies offered by Sanders, that he freely admitted were socialist. Those factors were an automatic recipe for a massive wipeout of the party nationwide on Election day, otherwise known as, Democratic Doomsday.
How the Empire Struck Back
The party leadership decreed, this will not stand, and went to work to artificially reverse the naturally occurring ascendancy of the progressive wing of the party. First, the establishment fanned the sailboat called Senator Elizabeth Warren for as long as possible, as a means of splitting the progressive vote to prevent Sanders from ever winning, to clear the way for Biden. Second, a strange new app was devised to sort out the results of the Iowa Caucases (ahem, who needed an app to run election results in a small state, that had already managed to do so successfully for generations?). Sooo…the top DNC honchos put together a “defective” app that would produce confusing results, designed to blunt or muddy the momentum of Bernie right out of the box. Then the mess would be blamed on the Iowa officials, who after all are just a minute fraction of the Dem party. Only the mess was much more messy and extended than they planned, drawing prolonged attention to the whole corrupt re-cheating of Sanders, as some of the sharper pro-Bernie bloggers duly noted. Accordingly, when the app failed to function reliably, it caused the results to be trickled in for days, depriving Sanders of the crucial same night announcement that he was a winner—instead, the ambiguous results and victory had to be essentially ‘shared’ with Mayor Pete (Booty) Buttigieg, a gay former (?) CIA operative/asset turned small town executive.
We know Pete was/is Deep State intelligence connected, because he got the massive coverage (unlike other minor city Mayors who ran for President, but were totally blacked out by the media). These tactics remind me of the all-nighter in the GOP Nevada contest in 2012, where it seems the vote counters were desperate to delay announcing final results until they found a way to depress Ron Paul’s vote totals. It’s SO blatantly obvious that the original Iowa results were (in order) most likely Sanders, Buttigieg, Warren, Klobuchar, and Biden. That’s why “the app failed” ahem, as they had to suppress the Sanders victory, and throw a lifeline to Biden to keep him from finishing lower than Amy. Despite this causing Sanders’ momentum to be blunted, and Buttigieg’s standing to be inflated, he still won New Hampshire narrowly but solidly anyway, and Nevada by even more.
Finally, though, the Dr. Frankenstein operatives trying to jolt Biden’s electrodes caught a break. The candidacy of billionaire Michael Bloomberg crumbled after his appearance in the debates—notably, due to establishment shill Sen. Warren leading the hostile savaging of him (hmmm, didn’t Princess Tiger Liar say she would keep things positive and not attack her fellow candidates?). This created a doorway for Joe to be reconsidered as the leading “centrist” in the race. Then they got (or demanded) South Carolina one man institution James Clyburn to endorse Biden just before the South Carolina “firewall” primary. Biden’s strong victory there (in the one state he was expected to win in the first place) created the cover the DNC needed to largely manufacture the Super Tuesday wins that followed.
As if on cue, all the ‘moderate” candidates dropped out of the race just before the big day, to instantly endorse Creepy Joe (all, of course, except for swamp stalking horse Sen. Warren, who doubtless had been told to stay in just long enough to divide progressives, frustrating Sanders by allowing Biden to win the close Super Tuesday races). The most critical victory of these machinations was that Biden had more total delegates coming out of it than Sanders had. Indeed, Joe won states he hadn’t even set foot in or spent advertising in, leading some to say, “it appears the votes for Biden were counted on Tuesday morning.” Thus at no point could Sanders ever get the “frontrunner” appellation handed to him, as that was being carefully reserved for the anointed Creepster. The usual media narrative could then proceed as originally designed—“Biden is the presumptive nominee, so everybody unify and get behind the frontrunner, the race is over.”
Biden’s “He’ll Do” Moment
Way back in 1992, commentator Michael Kinsley wrote a column to explain why the Democratic and liberal media establishment had embraced Bill Clinton, despite all his controversies, which were known even at that early point. His conclusion was that, in spite of Slick Willie’s glaring flaws and scandals (including that infamous ‘body count’ list), his political skills and other positives, and the overwhelming desire of Democrats to get the White House back after 12 years of Reagan and Bush, justified giving Bill a pass or a “he’ll do” seal of approval. Without question, given a choice between Sanders, who was felt to have zero chance of beating Trump, or Biden, who has next to no chance of winning, and doesn’t threaten to sink those down ticket, Biden would be far preferable. In other words, he’ll do.
But this means papering over, or bulldozing over, all his faults, failures, corrupt associations, and possible geriatric issues. His presumed “centrist” legislative record could be brought up, for example on guns, but not his promise to put rabid gun grabbers like Beto O’Rourke in charge of his gun policy if he got elected. The Biden machine also moved heaven and earth to cover up the assets of his son, Hunter Biden from being exposed, after a tryst with a stripper in Arkansas led to a pregnancy (his child, proven by DNA testing). The mother sued for child support, which of course meant that in discovery, Hunter would have to explain where all the over one million bucks he made from Burisma and other Ukrainian dealings came from, and went to. Instead, he claimed poverty and even tried to avoid a settlement—until the judge demanded he appear for a deposition, then lo and behold, he suddenly had the cash and the desire to quietly cut a deal with the mother. The money had to come from somewhere, since the greasy slimeball was claiming he was unemployed and cash poor. What is really obvious is that the judge rejected his attempt to blow off going under oath about his finances, leaving Team Biden (Hunter and Quid Pro Joe) no further option to avoid it but to settle with stripper mom.
Bernie’s “He Won’t” Moment
Just to be clear, as a libertarian, I am not a Sanders guy, but I do support populism, of whatever brand. Sanders comes off as a not corporate-owned, authentic person, while Warren is a elite controlled lying sham. What Sanders needed to do was fully embrace building a populist coalition, the way Trump did (only this time, on the left), but unfortunately too many of Bernie’s supporters are mired in an anti-liberty, pro-elitist mindset that would not relent from believing the Democratic leadership, or left end of the swamp, would be fine if they were running it. MoveOn and similar pro-Bernie outfits sniffed at the notion of needing non-left grassroots endorsements (like one given by Joe Rogan) to take power over everybody. They want the power, without any help from the ‘deplorables’ they would rather put under their heel. Only the elite may endorse the elite, as far as they are concerned.
They thought half the country was deplorable then, and they think the same now. This snooty contempt leads them to think the Trump era is simply a temporary aberration of the order of how things should really work, and their elite should be restored to power immediately to punish the peasants who put Trump in power. Like the leadership they decry, they remain clueless about the broader national and international trends leaning towards populist liberty, and about how complete their defeat was in the recent coup attempts. About the only thing going for the Dems now, from the Bernies to the Bidenistas, is that the fallout from the first caucus and primaries gave them leeway to change the subject away from their coup failure, or shampeachment disaster.
In the end, there was a double absence of will to face down the corporate left end of the establishment table, be it on the campaign trail or at the debates, and this has spelled doomsday for the attempt of progressives to ascend into controlling the party, for now. Basically, the Swamp Empire struck back and worked the defibrillator to zap Biden back to life at crunch time, while the Bernie forces didn’t return the volley—or else have resigned themselves to stay home again this November. Sanders won’t throw down or face down the swamp, and the so-called energized millenials won’t show up where that energy counts the most—the polls. It’s always the same with youth turn out. After all is said and done, only 12-15% of its demographic shows up at election time. Young adults are reliably good at three things—dating, partying (and now) swiping or tapping their smartphones. They haven’t felt beaten down enough by the government (whether they blame it on Dems or GOP) to get motivated enough to become active voters.
Whichever, absent younger voters showing up, a grassroots Democratic Presidential contender cannot succeed in winning the nomination without attracting a coalition of suburban women, urban blacks and southern voters—not to mention the will of its candidate to truly confront (and not capitulate to) the party and media establishment. The writing is on the wall for the progressives after the Bernie burnout, going into 2024 and beyond. In blunt terms, being openly socialist is out, and they need to find a black progressive candidate who can engage the Midwest to head their movement. Ohio’s Nina Turner is one example of what they need. Bingo—then they can appeal to blacks and southern states, and reach mid-western and working class voters. Short of that, their insurgency has run its course under the Senator’s candidacy.
If any one questioned the commitment of Sanders to carrying through with his campaign, or lack of same, the one-on-one debate with Biden of March 15 with Biden certainly ended all doubts. The CNN no-audience echo chamber (how ironic) was a one way spectacle, where the moderator pounced on Bernie (such as asking about his heart attack, of months ago), while omitting any mention of Biden’s recent torrent of gaffes that have many wondering not merely whether he is succumbing to dementia, but how fast his dementia is advancing. If Trump, by contrast, had doddered away in only ONE verbal incident that caused concerns over his mental acuity, CNN would be peppering him with questions on it at every presser or debate. What a farce. The only news here is that Bernie was in on the rigging. The fact that Bernie wouldn’t break with establishment dogma and say Russian intervention in the 2016 election was a fraud was already known, but he wouldn’t even go for the low hanging fruit to hang Joe on. He wouldn’t go after Joe over getting a mental cognitive test, he wouldn’t go after Biden for his long list of numerous lies, and he wouldn’t go after him over Ukrainian corruption. 1, 2, 3, strikeout. So of course, the Democratic primaries are over.
Still, the fact that Bernie, depending on his selecting the location, could get Monday Night RAW sized crowds, should settle the Dem argument over who their candidate should be. Sanders is the ONLY one who could prove he had an energized base—not Creepy Joe, not Money Mike, not Booty. Bernie is the one they should have gone with, if they wanted to have any chance in 2020. So be it the Creepy one, or Hillary rising from the grave to take the nomination from him, the party appears poised to experience a wipeout come November. It’s Democratic Doomsday, come the 2020 election.
“It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans…We have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.” This comment by Congressman and libertarian standard bearer Dr. Ron Paul, as usual, summarizes the absurd dimensions of the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) global tidal wave that has smitten the political, financial and social scene over the last months, from Wall Street to cruise ships, to the Vatican.
Certain opportunists have been able to use the situation as a convenient shield to push for all manner of tyrannies, and to even score propaganda points against China and Iran, or other parties that don’t play ball with the US global empire. Cui bono, or who benefits from all this crisis mongering, face mask sales, or China bashing? And why are the chief crisis-fanners like NIAID head Dr. Anthony Fauci (Mr. “its getting worse”) trumpeted around the media 24/7 as one of the only talking heads worthy of giving a microphone to? Why are there no alternative doctors or virus experts brought forth to offer a counter or second opinion as to the “shutdown everything” and “blame China” prescriptions the government has been freely handing out to deal with the spread? Why all this one-way hyperbole over a virus that is only half as deadly as the seasonal flu?
Academics are Stubborn Things
Some of us want more truth, less heat, and less put downs of those who question things—and many of those who want this are academic researchers, or observers of the science literature over the last few months. For one thing, professional or peer reviewed science journals such as Science and The Lancet have declined to accept the official story that Wuhan, China “must be” the ground zero for where the virus started. The key matter is that the origin point of a virus, and the location of an outbreak of the virus can be two different things. Both the timeline of clinical cases that were discovered there, and the molecular profile of the virus suggest a different point of origin. Some observers also question whether the initial tests conducted even rationally established that the new strand was more lethal than other CV strands, since the tests in Wuhan were conducted in hospitals with subjects who had pre-existing illnesses (which may have heavily skewed the results).
According to Virological (again, a peer reviewed publication, not “some propagandist on the internet”), the genetic evidence is that the virus was brought by someone to the seafood market, most likely from outside China. Yes, that country has produced an abundance of cases since late fall, but only from one strand or ‘branch’ of COVID-19, whereas the true source of the outbreak would show a presence of all the strands of the virus, or ‘the trunk of the tree.’ Academics and health authorities from several countries have thus pleaded for the governments to disclose all their data on the pandemic, after which a fair and full evaluation can be conducted as to the origin of the virus.
Prof Michel Chossudovsky notes that “on March 12, in a statement to the US Congress (House Oversight Committee), CDC Director Robert Redfield unwittingly “spilled the beans”. He candidly admitted, yes, some cases diagnosed as seasonal flu could have been coronavirus. When did this occur? In October, November? What is the chronology. It is worth noting that Redfield’s statement is corroborated by both Japanese and Taiwanese virologists. Two countries which are staunch allies of the USA.”
This kind of real science and critical scrutiny is what has been posted on the remaining free speech portals online, and hardly amounts to “conspiracy theories” floating around on the web. Larry Romanoff, author of several Global Research reports on the subject, says these considerations justify an “impetus for caution among the public in accepting the “official standard narrative” that the Western media are always so eager to provide – as they did with SARS, MERS, and ZIKA, all of which ‘official narratives’ were later proven to have been entirely wrong. In this case, the Western media flooded their pages for months about the COVID-19 virus originating in the Wuhan seafood market, caused by people eating bats and wild animals. All of this has been proven wrong.
“Not only did the virus not originate at the seafood market, it did not originate in Wuhan at all, and it has now been proven that it did not originate in China but was brought to China from another country. Part of the proof of this assertion is that the genome varieties of the virus in Iran and Italy have been sequenced and declared to have no part of the variety that infected China and must, by definition, have originated elsewhere. It would seem the only possibility for origination is the US because only that country has the “tree trunk” of all the varieties. And it may therefore be true that the original source of the COVID-19 virus was the US military bio-warfare lab at Fort Detrick.”
The Virus Profile Issue
There is also a question as to whether the virus strand was artificially generated. If it is naturally occurring, then it should die off in spring/summer. If not, well then, we have our answer. And then there’s the pesky matter that the pattern of cases that have emerged worldwide through mid-March, as pointed out by three different governments, show very unnatural concentrations of COVID-19 in specific countries—that all just so happen to have a political problem with Western nations at this time:
What is most distressing to a true libertarian is the “credit card” moment the declared epidemic has given the authoritarians in power, to run up their VISA card to ramrod wholesale restrictions on human movement, the right to assembly, and other expressions of voluntary choice. Gary Barnett notes on Lew Rockwell: “A so-called virus that has reportedly been responsible for a few thousand deaths, has allowed a small number of politicians to take over most of the globe. Entire countries are shutting down, and implementing different forms of martial law. Travel bans are now becoming universal, and the ruling class is demanding total isolation among entire populations. At the current time, this is called self-isolation, which would obviously be a voluntary behavior. The reality is that anyone that is told to self-isolate and does not do so, is forced at gunpoint to comply. This has nothing to do with self or voluntary action, but is the result of total despotic rule.”
Who Benefits from the Selective Spread
In short, we appear to be getting rolled on this subject. The cult of the omnipotent state is grooving off of the power it’s receiving through the pandemic, and you can see it or feel it with every new press conference they hold, or every new edict they pronounce. You can safely surmise you are being subjected to a propaganda campaign when you hear from only one side, with the other side getting mercilessly demonized, if mentioned at all. Black libertarian soulmate YoungRippa59 lays out the meaning behind this agenda-driven madness:
On top of the political and pathogen doomsdays, it seems there were other factors impacting the severe correction seen in the capital markets. Namely, a steep drop in oil prices (down to $45 a gallon internationally) and the refusal of Russia to help OPEC prop up oil price rates. This played a huge role in creating the kind of uncertainty that causes investors to sell off, or park their money in Treasuries and precious metals. The details of the economics get kind of complex (as usual) but boiled down, the price of oil has been artificially held up too high by the cartels and by central banks, as the well has run dry for those manuevers being able to keep that commodity overpriced. That means (when major commodity prices go down), that we are entering a deflationary period, as opposed to periods of inflation, when prices are going up.
Writers like Thomas Luongo have stepped out the implications of deflation, the most relevant for us being that countries that have relied on debt (borrowing and deficit spending) based on the defacto backing of commodities like oil are in big trouble, as opposed to nations that are asset rich (like Russia) who rely on equity or savings. A loss in oil value means a loss in borrowing power, while those less dependent on borrowing are given more power in market. So of course Russia didn’t have to help the cartels, as it has no stake in their loss of borrowing power. Western countries are deeply affected, however because they seem to do nothing financially but dream up new ways to get in more debt.
One ally the debtor nations have had in staying on top are the central banks, but their bag of tricks mainly apply to manipulating inflationary markets, through controlling debt being issued, printing more money, and shifting interest rates. But those tricks don’t apply to deflation, leading to the banks being fairly useless in handling the current situation. Worse, by responding to the recent stock crash by lowering interest rates to near about zero, all they did was encourage the recent spate of unlimited short selling (those who bet stocks will go down) even more, thus encouraging even more stock sell offs. The banks have made it even cheaper for people to borrow in order to short sell, and they wonder why more short selling is going on? Doh! Fed chairman Powell should be ousted for incompetence, or prosecuted if he is doing this deliberately to hurt the President, as Trump has suggested. Perhaps if we cannot get the Fed done away with, we can at least audit the thing to find out if the Fed board have ulterior motives behind its decisions. As of now, the bank is supposedly ‘independent,’ yet if we turn over a few rocks, we might find too many on the board are in truth flunkies for the Deep State, and/or for a certain Hungarian or other euro billionaire.
But the Fed is a creature of the Federal Reserve Act, as enacted by Congress, which does require the Chairman to be appointed. Perhaps a bold President will someday assert that he will not be appointing any new Chairman other than the current Treasury Secretary, who DOES answer to the President. Or better, launch a suit challenging the constitutionality of the Federal Reserve Act, by asserting the document only authorizes the Treasury to be issuing or controlling the currency. Until that happens, expect Americans to remain under the continued yoke of debt, monetary-driven distorted markets, and an economy subject ongoing threat of collapse during a deflationary doomsday pressure cooker period, like the one we appear to be going into.
One bright side to think about, if you are generally bullish about the stock market, is this: Given that we all know the Dow was over 29,000 this winter, if you had then known a global emergency would drop the markets by 30%, wouldn’t you think it would be a tremendous one-time opportuniy to buy on a super low? This may be the very last chance investors will get, ever again, to buy while Dow is in the 20,000s. Do it while you can.
Deep State Shutdown Doomsday
Meanwhile, this past winter has been a prolonged Revenge Month by the Deep State, for the wins Trump achieved in January. In that month Trump was acquitted in the shampeachment, started kicking out NSC leakers, and the Dems humiliated themselves with the Iowa app mess. So naturally, the swamp has responded by setting up Attorney General Barr for criticism over reconsidering the Roger Stone sentencing, then dropping the case against McCabe. This does not show a swamp in control, it shows it throwing desperation punches, after it has been sent reeling by blows it has received from team Trump.
Donald Trump doesn’t work for the Deep State, and because he is an independent, post-CIA controlled President, the Deep State has worked on destroying him for four years. They’ve tried to topple him with multiple phony scandals, and with thousands of Obama or even Bush era holdovers in the State, Defense, DOJ and intel establishments ‘resisting’ him tooth and nail. He’s only just now digging himself out of the impeachment hole they dug for him, twice. To get to this point of being in the clear (relatively speaking), though, he has had to compromise—first in terms of holding off his intention to withdraw troops from the Mideast quagmires, and second in his choosing certain “double agents” of his own to negotiate with the swamp.
Attorney General William Barr, for example, is a compromise figure appointed after a deal was cut between Trump and the Bush gang, where the Bushes would retire from managing the right end of the swamp, in exchange for Barr sparing his old buddy Bob Mueller from the indictments of swamp people coming after the impeachment mania was over. Barr is there to enforce the truce, so he has to live up to that by eventually arresting swampers. But it’s pretty hard to clean up a rat cage, when you’re surrounded by swamp rats. It’s still the swamp’s DOJ, FBI, and MSM. Even a AG 10 times more aggressive than Barr would be a needle in a deep state haystack under the current state of these institutions. What so many of us want to see is SOMEBODY from the swamp elite getting indicted, arrested, a grand jury convened, or subpoenaed to testify under oath, or SWAT teamed before dawn, etc, to show justice is in progress regarding their activities.
Even so, when will it happen, cry those who want to see justice done on the coup plotters, both officially those out of power, and those more numerous holdovers still in the bureaucracies? The background issue remains, being able to convict these worms, who clearly know how to cover their tracks. The fact that the swamp creatures like Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper et al warrant indictment does NOT establish that they can get convicted, given their ability to go group “radio silent” on their coup activity, by losing key evidence, stonewalling or slow walking the declassification of other documents, etc. Such tactics are designed to produce a black hole in the chain of evidence, from which sufficient smoking gun proof may never come out. How is Barr (or his lead prosecutor John Durham) going to PROVE, not just suspect, what they were up to during such periods? This is why the path to prosecution has been taking so long, and why Durham is now not expected to complete the investigation until summer. A couple of acquittals of these people will lead immediately to more swamp celebrations and santimonious rants about being “politically persecuted” like the ones we saw from McCabe last month. What good will premature arrests and indictments do, if it leads to them beating the rap?
What we are left with is a shutdown race, where Trump is now on track to shut down the Deep State swamp, while that swamp is out to shut him down first, this time by getting him defeated in November. To achieve that end, they are prepared to do just about anything—fraudulently revive Biden’s candidacy while it was full rigor mortis, shutdown the country and temporarily cancel its entire culture, foment a national medical crisis over a virus much less lethal than TB or swine flu, worsen a stock sell-off by engineering short selling, or make a deflationary economic event worse by getting its guys at the Fed to drop rates. All, all, all of this, to demoralize the public enough to blame Trump for it, and drive him out of office. Will the swamp succeed? Will they, or peace and freedom get to the finish line first? We’ll see what happens.
