WHO Feeds the Dragon?The number of dangerous “imports” from China has been growing steadily. For years reports on toxic food and products have been swept under the mainstream media’s magic carpet and global outbreak alerts have been normalized by “…in a land far, far away…” fairy tales.

The Virus

Yep, it originated in China. Right now the only legitimate complaint about the name of the virus could come from producers of Corona beer who have already lost more than $161 million in sales. While the leftist likes of an U.S Rep. with Chinese Facebook account flaunt their allergy to facts and lament “word xenophobia” , millions of people are paying the price for the newest “import”. The confined human “mass” doesn’t need to study Information Manipulation Theory (McCornack, 1992) to realize that “given information” provided them with a false perception of a deadly problem. Already in 2002 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) spread “unverified” to 37 countries. Ever since 2001,  WHO’s disease outbreaks news from China  juggled influenza A (H5N1) virus and SARS reports, not to mention  alerts on “melamine-contaminated powdered infant formula”, streptococcus suis (a swine pathogen that causes meningitis, sepsis, pneumonia and endocarditis) and polio virus.

Toxic “Goods”

Affiliates of  Chinese business in the USA and Europe clearly do not worry about customer trust and believe in raiding retail spaces and bombarding shoppers with no matter how harmful (but cheap) products. It’s not only about imposition of weird Chinese sizes and silly “translation” from Amazon: you could be purchasing a radioactive drywall  or an “all-American” lead tainted toy for your kid. With lack of well-deserved penalty for false “Made in the USA” labels we can expect more than “Only American Hockey Puck” to show its true Chinese colors. To add insult to the long list of  “unfair and deceptive acts”  two California based manufacturers “forgot” to inform American soldiers and Veterans that funds from sales of deployment bags and other gear marketed for them (including American flag…) were feeding the dragon.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has already caused war-like civilian casualties and disruption to economic activity world-wide. Some will deliberate on “pardonable” negligence; those who run towards the danger long enough not to believe in coincidences will consider coercive diplomacy or a leak from Wuhan’s lab. We are entering an era not only of hardship, but also of a great responsibility. Honorable leaders will have a duty  of taking counsel from our best military erudites, we the people will have the task of supporting leaders who want to bring production of our meds, clothes and food back home; the leaders willing to make America, and the world—safe again. In his tweet from the 7th of April, 2020 President Trump rightly concluded “W.H.O really blew it”.

And yep, I do hope that “We will be giving that a good look”. And nope, I do not hate Chinese people; as a matter of fact I think that Dr. Li Wenliang deserves Nobel Prize more than a toxic politician.

Trump’s Main Street Marshall Plan


Some call small businesses the backbone of the American economy

Dr. Robert R. Owens image

Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By  —— Bio and ArchivesApril 7, 2020

Trump's Main Street Marshall PlanHow it was:

Basking in the glow of renewed freedom birthed through the Trump era tax cuts and the President’s massive reversal of the regulation noose that’s strangled America for the past three years, small-business success has achieved record highs.  The best economy in half a century unleashed by the lower taxes and fewer regulations inspired small businesses to hire more employees, to pay higher wages, and then to reinvest its capital.

How it is:

This pandemic is what historians call a black swan event.  It came out of nowhere and changed our perceptions forever.  But having said that, the same conditions of lower taxes and less regulation still exist.  Though currently stifled by the stay-at-home orders and self-quarantees this period of confinement and artificial limits is building a tsunami of pent-up demand.

As one of America’s main employers, the Small Business Administration tells us Main Street is the engine of our economy.  Here are some facts about small businesses in America today:

  • There are almost 21.5 million (90%) small businesses in the United States
  • Small businesses are responsible for 39 percent of GNP.
  • Small businesses are responsible for 52 percent of  all U.S. sales and contribute about 21 percent of all manufactured U.S. exports.
  • Small businesses contribute 44 percent of all sales in the country.
  • Small businesses employ 54.4 million people, about 57.3 percent of the private workforce.

Some call these small businesses the backbone of the American economy.  In this time of national sacrifice and emergency they deserve a government that addresses their needs.

Paycheck Protection Program

What’s been done:

In response to this crisis Congress passed, and the President signed the largest direct assistance program in American history. This, the third major bill in a month includes a novel plan for small businesses.  Instead of just tax incentives or emergency loans hidden behind a hedge of bureaucracy it seeks to deliver right-now-relief through the Paycheck Protection Program.

One way to express this effort calls to mind one of the most successful government programs of all time.  This is Trump’s Main Street Marshall Plan.

Through the Paycheck Protection Program businesses with fewer than 500 employees (including startups, sole proprietors, and the self-employed) can receive 100% federally guaranteed loans for eight weeks.  Then if the loan is used to pay employees, rent, or utilities, or rehire employees who were laid off due to the virus, the loan is forgiven.  The loan term is from February 15 to June 30.

This revolutionary piece of legislation saves small businesses the endless hassle of navigating the bewildering maze of the government bureaucracy which normally stands between citizens and government emergency relief.  With this innovative plan small business owners can work with their local bank or any lender backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.   This includes farmers.  Those who feed the world can work with the same farm credit institutions they’re familiar with, the ones they already know and trust.  All this without any bureaucrats in between the lenders and the borrowers.

The coronavirus pandemic is the greatest crisis as a nation we have faced in the lifetime of most Americans

American small businesses can take advantage of these loans right now, the sooner the better.  The applications for these loans are located on the  Treasury Department website.

The goal of the Paycheck Protection Program is to ensure small businesses are ready to relaunch as soon as America reopens for business.  This act seeks to keep Main Street afloat by providing direct relief for small businesses and keeping tens of millions of workers on the payroll.

The coronavirus pandemic is the greatest crisis as a nation we have faced in the lifetime of most Americans.  We have a great cheerleader in President Trump.  He strives day in and day out to raise our spirits and to lead us out of this dire scenario straight back to prosperity and peace.

What to do:

Having said all this, I have to share my belief that government, even one that is being led by the greatest crisis manager of modern times, is not the answer to America’s problems.  Only God can bring salvation whether we’re talking about an individual or a nation.

He once told us, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  And since God is the same yesterday, today, and forever,  we can still claim that promise.  Besides He also told us, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to  His  purpose.”

Trust God and He’ll bring us through.  Some may say, “What if we follow that advice and we catch the virus and die anyway?”  All I can say is if we die trusting God, no matter what the reason, we sure will be healed then.

Martin Armstrong against the Banks to the Supreme Court Status?


Armstrong Petition for Rehearing

Many people have written to ask if they can write to the Supreme Court because this is a battle for all of us against the bankers. I guess the more the merrier. I do think if the Supreme Court would take it, they would have to at least address what everyone knows — bankers walk on water and it’s not because they do not know how to swim. They swim in the swamp very nicely. Perhaps it would be the first shot fired in the battle to restore our Constitutional rights. I believe we will still have the right to freedom of speech for a little while longer, so those who want to write to make their voice heard, go ahead.

Supreme Court of the United States

1 First Street, NE

Washington, DC 20543

RE: Martin A. Armstrong v SEC et al (19-392)

Justice Sotomayor recused herself from my case because she had written the separate opinion below that said I was still entitled to Due Process, which in reality had got me to the Supreme Court the first time. That was the only reason why they had to release me for fear that the Supreme Court would rule. With Sotomayor recusing herself when she had ruled against the government on my case when she was on the 2nd circuit court of appeals, that means we would be down to 8 justices with only a more difficult position 4 – 4.


There are people who are desperately trying to dissuade people from listening to me because they cannot debate the message. They are usually paid to be against everything we are supposed to stand for in a free society. They have lied about everything and desperately tried to hide the truth. This makes one wonder, what is their motive? They never want to tell the truth that the bank stole the money. I never had to pay a dime, and all I ever had to say in court was that the bank took the money for its own benefit. Then I was gagged for life to prevent me from helping my clients. This is the truth they want to hide from the public and that includes those controlling Wikipedia.

Many people have also written in to ask what is going on in the Supreme Court. The government has been pleading not to hear the case. The New York boys keep the misrepresentation going and never want to discuss the fact that the bank had to plead guilty and return the money ($606 million) in return for no one from the bank being personally charged – as always.

They also could not hide the fact that the notes were issued in Japanese yen, not dollars, so where a receiver is supposed to gather all the money, in this case, they sold the notes to the bank and the bank redeemed the notes keeping a $400 million profit in the currency which belonged to Princeton Economics International.

 

The SEC admitted that there was more money in the company than needed. They also claimed that all the evidence was destroyed in the 911 attack, which included all the tapes they seized claiming “perhaps” they would lead to missing assets when I warned that would reveal the criminal activity of the bankers they were protecting.

I owed no restitution. The government was trying hard to use two accountings, one in dollars for me and one in Japanese yen for the bankers. They did this knowing full well that they were attempting to engage in fraud upon the court. They lost that one.

The government did not like that Judge McKenna was trying to protect me and saw through the crime that the prosecutors were pulling off on the public and the courts for political purposes. They went to the Chief Judge Mukasey and had Judge McKenna removed. They sealed the docket sheet so nobody will ever know how they got rid of Judge McKenna because he was ruling against them.

 

The ultimate fraud upon the public was to impose a lifetime gag order on me to prevent me from helping my clients against the bank that ultimately had to plead guilty and repay the money they stole. The government controls Wikipedia and refuses to ever mention the bank had to plead guilty. Anyone who tries to edit Wikipedia is immediately removed proving it is just controlled propaganda which is why nobody should EVER donate a dime to Wikipedia – it’s just controlled propaganda for political purposes when it counts.

The civil contempt was used to force me to plea for I was never entitled to a trial. The government said I could be held in prison indefinitely until I die and even denied me a lawyer. That was inside a tower in New York never being above to see grass again or feel rain. The compromise was that I would plea but refuse to ever say I stole anything. All I had to say to end the confrontation was about the bank stole the money – not me.

My plea was that I failed to tell my clients, over a weekend, that the bank had stolen the money “for its own benefit“. The government withheld every piece of exculpatory evidence possible, including this tape which I found a copy of in my mother’s basement when I was released. This is me talking with one of the people at Republic about who was moving money in my accounts. It was obviously not me, and I was clearly not in some conspiracy with the bankers.

Audio Player

In order to even do the documentary film on me, “The Forecaster,” they had to (1) verify the facts, (2) have the film insured against any slander liability, and (3) the gave the government the opportunity to give their side and they refused to appear. To get that insurance from Lloyd’s of London, everything had to be proven right down to the fact that this written correspondence demanded I turn over the source code to Socrates. I refused.

There are some things in life worth dying for and I was not about to see my life’s work end up in the hands of Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs was running Princeton Economics from its boardroom since the receiver appointed by the court was Alan Cohen, became a board member of Goldman Sachs, I believe, as a reward for seizing all the tapes and protecting the bankers. Cohen is now the #2 guy running the SEC.

My case has long stood as a warning why you should NEVER have an account with any of the New York banks. They can actually do whatever they like and the New York court will ALWAYS protect the bankers. Never has a single banker EVER been criminally prosecuted for any of the major crashes since 1998 and the Long-Term Capital Management crisis.

Perhaps this is just the doom of the United States. It is the SWAMP that Trump has talked about, but not even he understands how deep that swamp really is. Our future actually rides on this case. If we cannot stand up and expose the banker even ONCE, there is no hope that our future will ever be bright again. There is no right to equal protection of the law. There is no right to a trial by jury, to your lawyer, to anything. It is all simply the discretion of a judge. This is the sad statement the is reminiscent of the complaint of Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence.

He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

 He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries.

For protecting them (his agents), by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states;
… establishing therein an arbitrary government,

 

History Repeats – Always because ultimate power leads to ultimate corruption.

 

Kayleigh McEnany Replaces Stephanie Grisham As Press Secretary…


It appears new White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is making a few communications changes. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham will be returning to the East Wing as First Lady Melania Trump’s chief-of-staff.  Kayleigh McEnany will be replacing Grisham as Press Secretary.

[Politico] […] Alyssa Farah, a top Defense Department spokeswoman and former press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence, will also come aboard as the White House’s director of strategic communications.

Ben Williamson, Meadows’ former chief of staff and communications director, who will be Trump’s senior communications adviser. Farah also has a Meadows connection, previously serving as the communications director for the conservative House Freedom Caucus when Meadows, a former North Carolina lawmaker, was the caucus’s chairman.

Keep in mind that Hope Hicks returned in February as Senior advisor to President Trump on communications.  Ms. Hicks is the primary Trump-whisperer on media strategy.

Rank and Vile – DOJ Inspector General Identifies 93 Percent Non-Compliance Within FISA Review – Issues So Bad IG Presents Interim Report Before Reviewing Details…


After the DOJ Offfice of Inspector General (OIG), Michael Horowitz, presented his December 2019 findings of the FISA application used against U.S person Carter Page, the gross deficiencies and intentional fraud were so extensive the IG said he was going to review a sample of FISA applications to identify if the fraud and abuse was widespread.

The OIG began reviewing FISA applications from eight field offices (the proverbial “rank and file”).  The OIG selected 29 FISA applications from those field offices over the period of October 2014 to September 2019.  Additionally, every field office and the DOJ-NSD generate internal “Accuracy Reviews”, or self-checks on FISA applications; so the OIG inspected 42 of the accuracy review FISA files to determine if they were compliant.

The results were so bad the IG produced an interim memorandum to the DOJ and FBI [pdf link here].  Within the 17-page-memo the IG notifies Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray that all of the claimed FISA processes, in every field office, are grossly deficient, and in most cases there is zero compliance with FISA standards.  The IG memorandum is presented before the IG even looks at the specifics of the non-compliance.

Below is the report/memorandum.  Additionally I am summarizing the stunning top-lines identified by the IG memo:

  • The IG reviewed 29 FISA applications, surveillance warrants, used against U.S. persons.
  • The 29 FISA applications were from eight different field offices.
  • The FISA applications were from Oct/2014 through Sept/2019.
  • All of the FISA applications reviewed were approved by the FISA court.

The ‘Woods File’ is the mandatory FBI evidence file that contains the documentary proof to verify all statements against U.S. persons that are contained in the FISA application.  Remember, this is a secret court, the FISA applications result in secret surveillance and wiretaps against U.S. persons outside the fourth amendment.

♦ Within the 29 FISA applications reviewed, four were completely missing the Woods File.  Meaning there was zero supportive evidence for any of the FBI claims against U.S. persons underpinning the FISA application.  [ie. The FBI just made stuff up]

♦ Of the remaining 25 FISA applications, 100% of them, all of them, were materially deficient on the woods file requirement; and the average number of deficiencies per file was 20.  Meaning an average of twenty direct statements against the target, supporting the purpose of the FISA application, sworn by the FBI affiant, were unsubstantiated.  [The low was 5, the high was 63, the average per file was 20]

♦ Half of the FISA applications reviewed used Confidential Human Sources (CHS’s).  The memo outlines that “many” of applications containing CHS claims had no supportive documentation attesting to the dependability of the CHS.

♦ Two of the 25 FISA applications reviewed had renewals; meaning the FISA applications were renewed to extended surveillance, wiretaps, etc. beyond the initial 90-days.  None of the renewals had any re-verification.  Both FISAs that used renewals were not compliant.

But wait… it gets worse.

The DOJ and FBI have an internal self-check mechanism.  The DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) chief counsel, and the chief counsel for every FBI field office are required to conduct an “Accuracy Review” of selected FISA applications.  One per field office (25 to 30 field offices),which are also sent to DOJ-NSD (main justice) for general counsel inspection.

Keep in mind, these “accuracy reviews” are known in advance, so the FBI has all the time in the world to select the best FISA file for review.  Additionally, I surmise the OIG wanted to inspect the “accuracy review” FISA’s because they would show the best light on the overall system itself.  The OIG was looking for the best, most compliant, product to report on.

However, when the OIG inspected 42 of these Accuracy Reviews, the IG identified that only three of them had accurately assembled documents (Woods File) supporting the application.  The error rate within the files self-checked was over 93%.

So the best FBI files are selected to undergo the FBI and DOJ-NSD accuracy review.  The accuracy review takes place by FBI legal counsel and DOJ-NSD legal counsel.  However, the IG finds that only three FBI applications in the accuracy reviews were compliant.

The error rate in the files undertaken by the internal accuracy review was over 93% (3 compliant out of 42 reviewed).  These were the FISA files with the greatest possibility of being accurate.  Let that sink in…

Here’s the OIG Report/Memorandum:

Dr. WHO and the Clintons


How did State Department view this fraud at the Global Fund?

Lee Cary image

Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By  —— Bio and ArchivesMarch 29, 2020

Dr. WHO and the ClintonsNote: Pictured above is Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO.) He is the first WHO director-general who is not a medical doctor.  He holds a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in Community Health from the University of Nottingham, and a Master of Science (MSc) in Immunology of Infectious Diseases from the University of London. From 2005-2012, he was Ethiopia’s Minister of Health.

Batman and Robin wade into the Swamp to out the Clinton Foundation

On March 23, 2019, this site posted an article entitled “Batman and Robin wade into the Swamp to out the Clinton Foundation”. The picture below is of two men swearing to tell the truth before a hearing of the House of Representatives, Subcommittee on Government Operations, on the afternoon of December 13, 2018.

These two are the “Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers”.

Only one Democrat House member showed up to ask questions—the appointed Democrat “delegate” from the District of Columbia. There weren’t enough people in the audience to field a baseball team.  It was the last Republican-led meeting of the subcommittee before the Democrats took control of the House. The chair, Rep. Mark Meadows, would later become President Trump’s Chief of Staff.

The witnesses were (right) John F. Moynihan, Principal, JFM & Associates, Compliance Advisory Group and (left) Lawrence Doyle, DM Income Advisors, Managing Partner. Think of them as bounty-hunter forensic accountants wading through the financials of the Clinton Foundation. If they can document tax fraud, they’re entitled to a percentage of the money owed to the government. And they believe they have sufficient documentation assembled.

Lawrence Doyle and John F. Moynihan

Oversight of Nonprofit Organizations, A Case Study on the Clinton Foundation

Doyle’s expertise comes from Wall Street where serious numbers-crunchers work.  Moynihan’s from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), where experts in uncovering money-laundering search.

The title to their presentation was “Oversight of Nonprofit Organizations, A Case Study on the Clinton Foundation”.

For an enhanced appreciation of what follows, you might open the link to the March 23, 2019 post, and skim the article. It puts what follows into context.

Set-up: On March 27, 2020, the “Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers”—as they describe themselves—tweeted a multi-instalment thread that is consolidated below into a straight copy format, without editing. The full content of their tweet is in italics:

“Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers, (Doyle-Moynihan): In light of our current public health crisis, I expect we will be hearing more from/about the World Health Organization (WHO) and the need for more global government funding a la a new Global Fund. Stay with me. This gets good: 

The current head of WHO is a Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, formerly the head of the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia, a speaker at the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative, and named chair of the board of the Global Fund in July 2009.

Tedros Adhanom’s tenure as board chair of the Global Fund

The Global Fund is an independent Geneva-based financing entity launched in 2002 to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. The US government provides 1/3rd of its funding totalling $18B to date since inception. 

Not widely known or broadcasted is the fact that the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (an unauthorized and unapproved program by IRS codes) has been a sub-recipient of Global Fund money (Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Indonesia Independent Progress Report pages 8, 9, 11, 25, 51). 

During Tedros Adhanom’s tenure as board chair of the Global Fund, the organization gets rocked by claims of fraud and misappropriation of funds. The US House Committee on Foreign Relations drafts a report “to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to correct and prevent the misuse of Fund resources.” (page 6/10) The Congressional report and other reviews minimize the size of the fraud and misappropriation of funds. 

Others with a more discerning eye had a more critical take. “A full 67% of money spent on an anti-AIDS program in Mauritania was misspent, the investigators told the fund’s board of directors. So did [sic] 36% of the money spent on a program in Mali to fight tuberculosis and malaria, 30% of grants to Djibouti” (source)   

Who was minding the purse strings of USAID which was the source of funds that went from the US State Dept to the Global Fund at this juncture? Documents we sourced from the State Department show that none other than Secretary Hillary Clinton herself over saw the USAID funds. 

 

At the same time the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDs and Clinton Health Access Initiative were collecting millions in fees

How did State Department view this fraud at the Global Fund? From a letter we sourced written by the Government Accountability Project on April 22, 2016, we learned: “this documentation strongly indicates an irregular and improper collusion between the Global Fund” and the State Department in Washington that cost U.S. taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars in the succeeding years. It is tantamount to fraud. 

At the same time the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDs and Clinton Health Access Initiative were collecting millions in fees, the Global Fund and also other recipients of Global Fund money who,  in turn, were donors to the Clinton Foundation (classic money laundering). These donors include the governments of Dominican Republic, Rwanda, and Lesotho. Where was the State Department IG while all this was going on? Oh, yes, that’s right there was no IG for the State Department during HRC’s tenure. How does that happen? Perhaps the same way a Secretary of State sets up a secret server. Rule of law, anybody? (Source)  

So when you hear from @BillGates and the World Health Organization @WHO and the Global Fund @GlobalFundand a host of others about WHO leader Tedros Adhanom, and for another version of the Global Fund to battle coronavirus, please retweet this thread.” [End Quote]
Below is the up-dated US Tax Court docket in the case of “Lawrence W. Doyle & John F. Moynihan v. the COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE.

The takeaways are these: (1) The Whistleblowers’ case is moving through that court system, although with sloth-like speed; and, (2) Batman and Robin are intrepid investigators on a mission that should give the Clintons pause.

What Happens when the People are Confronted by a Government Financial System that Crumbles before their eyes?


Congress has been out to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The national debt keeps growing reaching around $23 trillion, yet Congress as an institution points fingers across the aisle toward the other party to always find a scapegoat. Both parties share the blame and neither party is ever interested in even discussing the problem no less listen to any possible solution. Congress is literally out of order. It is just broken and is beyond repair.  Congress passes measures to make it sound like they are addressing the problem, but when it actually impacts spending, like the spending caps, they suspend the measure quietly behind the curtain. Congress refuses to confront the issue of debt and politicians simply run always promising more goodies if you vote for them.

In health care, the issue of surprise medical billing (SMB) has become a top issue. Congress has, yet again, gotten it wrong. The solution for Congress is to push for price controls that will end up short-changing doctors and limiting choice for patients. Physician groups have been pointing out that the solution being proposed “could lead to market consolidation and artificially low payment rates.” The problem was created by insurance companies, yet the doctors and patients are paying the price. Nobody will address the insurance companies or the pharmaceutical industry. They always get special treatment.

The #1 lobbyist is the US Chamber of Commerce which spent a staggering $94,800,000 on lobbying in 2018. The National Association of Realtors spent $72,808,648 on lobbying in 2018. The Open Society Policy Center, of billionaire George Soros who seeks to buy politicians, spent $31,520,000 in 2018. The Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America is a trade association for drug manufacturers. They spent $27,989,250 on lobbying in 2018. The Chicago-based American Hospital Association spent $23,927,842 on lobbying efforts. The United States health insurance giant, Blue Cross, spent $23,604,221 on lobbying in 2018. Alphabet, which is the parent company of Google, spent $21,740,000 on lobbying in 2018. The American Medical Association spent $20,417,000 on lobbying in 2018. Telecommunications giant AT&T spent $18,529,000 on lobbying in 2018. Boeing aircraft manufacturer spent $15,120,000 on lobbying in 2018. Then there is the National Association of Broadcasters which spent $14,170,000 in 2018. You don’t have to guess which party got the lion share.

The only way to ever address the crisis we face in debt and government is a clean-sweep with term limits. If it is one-time and out, then we get to call lobbying what it really is – an anti-capitalistic system of rebranding the age-old practice of bribery.

We are facing the ultimate collapse of the government because they will not address the problems. The Democrats continue to run with promises of freebies without any sense of how the system functions and never addressing the crisis in debt. Both parties simply see this system as never-ending. What we face is going to be a major shock when the public is confronted by a system that crumbles before their eyes. What comes after that is the real question: Freedom or Authoritarianism?

After Being Discovered Wasted and Naked in a Hotel Room With a Gay Male Escort and Bags of Crystal Meth, Andrew Gillum Says He Will Withdraw From Public Life…


It was only a matter of time before the familiar “entering rehab” and “apologize to my family” excuse was trotted out by former Florida gubernatorial candidate and CNN contributor, Andrew Gillum.

After being discovered naked in a hotel room with an overdosed gay male escort and three bags of crystal meth next to the bed, Andrew Gillum says he is withdrawing from public life to deal with “deeper struggles”. Go figure:

TALLAHASSEE — Andrew Gillum said he would withdraw from public life, closing a chapter in his career that took him from the peak of Florida power to a Miami Beach hotel room where he was found inebriated with a man suspected of overdosing on crystal meth.

“This has been a wake-up call for me,” the former Tallahassee mayor said in a written statement Sunday. “Since my race for governor ended, I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse. I witnessed my father suffer from alcoholism and I know the damaging effects it can have when untreated. I also know that alcoholism is often a symptom of deeper struggles.“

“I will be stepping down from all public facing roles for the foreseeable future,” he wrote.

Gillum said he would enter a rehabilitation facility. He apologized and asked for privacy.

The one-time gubernatorial candidate will give up the reins of Forward Florida, a political committee he founded to register and motivate voters to defeat President Donald Trump in the battleground state.

He also is stepping back from CNN, where he was paid commentator, a gig that made him a familiar face in the living rooms of voters.

Gillum’s friends say he’s been withdrawn from them, too, as he grapples with the destruction of his career and the challenge to his marriage. (read more)

The Blame Game Trump vs Xi Jinping


Communists consider religion to be the opiate of the masses. Both the Soviet Union and communist China have oppressed the religious. Bernie Sanders promises action against Christians, whom he calls ‘religious bigots.’

Most communists do not believe in God. Their god is the ‘state.’ The state can do no wrong—it is both omniscient and omnipotent. It is perfect and incapable of mistakes. Heretics who doubt communism can face gulags or a bullet in the back of the head. In China, Mao starved millions of his own citizens for the good of the state. Nowadays, Chinese dissidents might even face having their organs ripped out of them. The state feels no guilt about any of this. After all, they consider humans to be data at best and at worst mere blobs of matter who are there to carry out the will of the state. The citizens must also pretend to be happy about it.

The problem with the perfect state of communism is the lies. The Soviet Union lied about nuclear technology and that led to the Chernobyl disaster. The current Chinese Communists are lying about the release of a bioweapon from one of their labs in Wuhan. The ChiComs must present themselves as incapable of error, so they’re now blaming the United States military for the virus. The ChiComs consider themselves to be perfect, therefore they will never admit a mistake. They never accept blame. Being wrong is a sign of weakness.

President Trump realized the United States has been wrong about trade with China. The US has become far too dependent on China for pharmaceuticals, for example. The ChiComs are now threatening to cut them off. It’s time to bring manufacturing back to America and that’s just what Trump wants to do. If we don’t do that, we’ll only have ourselves to blame.
