Judiciary Committee Sends Letter of Inquiry to Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch…


The leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, have officially launched an investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  Their inquiry surrounds Lynch assuring the Hillary Clinton campaign that the FBI probe into Clinton’s emails wouldn’t go too far.

(Via Politico) The Judiciary panel announced Friday it had sent letters to Lynch and other officials — the opening bid in what Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week would be separate investigations into the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and whether the Obama administration attempted to influence FBI investigations.

Whoopsie – Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Accidentally Proves WaPo Russian Conspiracy Article is Baseless…


When people react to questions from a perspective of individual self-preservation they tend to forget their professional obligation to the bigger institutional picture.

Reference Evelyn Farkas on MSNBC for one very visible and specific recent example.

Today we have another unintentional admission thanks to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and CNN.

Currently, the DNC and left-wing media apparatus writ large, are trying desperately to regain footing on the ‘vast Russian conspiracy narrative’, as specifically evidenced by the Washington Post article published early on Friday.

Included within the exhaustive Post article, and specifically as foundational evidence to support the overall conspiracy, the Washington Post highlights Russian “hacking” of the DNC servers.  Here’s an excerpt:

(WaPo) […] Meanwhile, the FBI was tracking a flurry of hacking activity against U.S. political parties, think tanks and other targets. Russia had gained entry to DNC systems in the summer of 2015 and spring of 2016, but the breaches did not become public until they were disclosed in a June 2016 report by The Post. (link)

However, almost simultaneously, in another media format, former head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, was being questioned about this very issue in the context of former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s recent congressional testimony.

What happens next is almost too funny for words. (see video below)

While attempting to defend her professional qualifications from the accusations of ineptitude, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz ends up calling Jeh Johnson a liar and simultaneously destroys the credibility of the Washington Post article.

Seriously.  Watch:

ECB Declares Two Italian Banks Have Failed


The European Central Bank (ECB) has announced as of June 23rd, that it was declaring two Italian banks insolvent. Veneto Banca SpA and Banca Popolare di Vicenza SpA have failed since the two banks repeatedly violated the regulatory capital requirements. The determination was made in accordance with Article 18 (1a) and Article 18 (4a) of the Uniform Resolution Mechanism Regulation.

The European banking crisis continues.

Germany Secretly Passed Total Surveillance of Everything



Governments routinely pass laws that are expanding their powers to the detriment of personal rights that are buried deeply in legislation only a diehard will read. We have heard about these type of sneaky legislation in the USA, but all governments are the same and Germany just proved it is no more honorable than the the worst of American politicians.

The Bundestag passed a secret legislation giving government full espionage powers against the private sector claiming it is an urgent case. The German government is now authorized, thanks to politicians claiming to represent the people, with the right to secretly install spy software on computers and smart phones clandestinely. This will be used for taxes, not just terrorism.

The law was intentionally hidden in a law on driving bans. It was secretly attached at the last minute hoping nobody would notice. Now the German government can monitor messenger services on smartphones and targets WhatsApp so they can intercept or read messages BEFORE encryption. The government can secretly download their spyware to the cell phone of the suspect without their knowledge. The government claimed: “We are increasingly observing that criminals communicate in encrypted form. This makes it increasingly difficult for the authorities to clarify even the most serious offenses, “said Thomas de Maizière (CDU). The problem is the term “criminal” and tax avoidance is a criminal offense.

The government is loving hackers for they use this as the excuse to grab more power. Rather than simply develop better security, they naturally prefer to empower their intelligence services and police authorities for monitoring measures under the pretense of it being “criminal” and then expand this power to collect taxes.

This is all about government collapsing. They know it. But they refuse to reform. Why surrender a good power until you have no alternative? The problem is, that promotes revolution.

Chicago Police Pension Goes Bust


Chicago’s police pension fund won’t have enough money to pay benefits to retirees in 2021, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS). At the end of 2020, LGIS estimates that the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago will have less than $150 million in assets to pay $928 million promised to 14,133 retirees the following year.

This is the fate of state and local pension funds. There is a storm gathering on the horizon and of course these state and local governments will be raising taxes to try to stay afloat. The system is collapsing and it is totally unsustainable. This is the very same crisis that destroyed the Roman Empire.

Democrats Can’t Beat Trump With All Actors & Media on Their Side


Despite having Hollywood, Google, Mainstream Media, and countless violent activists, the Democrats still can’t beat Trump. They just do not comprehend what is going on. There have been four congressional special elections this year where Democrats and Republicans have gone head-to-head. The Democrats have lost every one. Even the Georgia election, which was not a Special election, Ms Handel finished first scoring a win. California does not count for it is just too far to the left to matter anymore.

Nevertheless even Georgia’s election result was devastating to Democrats nationwide, for one would think with all the yelling, protests, and media coverage that is anti-Trump who has low approval ratings, according to the media, the Democrats should be able to win something if Trump is really regarded as being toxic.

When we look at the trend of the Democrats, they have been losing ground since World War II. They have been scoring lower highs and lower lows and this reflects a BEAR MARKET. This is part of the collapse in socialism coming because they just do not get it. The average person has been losing lifestyle ever since. The Gallup Poll has reported that 44% of Americans believe it is likely that today’s youth will have a better life than their parents. This has declined even since the 2007-2009. In fact, this is the lowest on record for a trend dating back to 1983.

You just can’t keep raising taxes and yelling about the rich. Raising taxes on the rich has NEVER lowered anyone else’s taxes or improved the life of the poor even once.

The lies are coming home. People like Hillary can pretend she cares about the poor, but she fills her pockets to the brim. People are waking up to reality. We are at record highs for children in their 30s still living with their parents.

The French elections saw something astonishing. Le Pen beat every mainstream party. Put this is American terms, imagine an election where the Republican and Democrats cannot even make it to the elections.

The Plight of Junk Science in All Fields


Junk Science is the real crisis we face as so many people think that Global Warming is caused by man and Co2. Of course, those who really believe this is the problem that will destroy the world perhaps should just commit suicide and take the dog with them. Since we exhale Co2 that would reduce the problem in their mind and save the world by setting a good example.

Junk Science plagues us in every field of science be it economics to health. For 25 years we were told that eggs are bad. How many people ordered egg whites only. Then the Junk Science was revised, but after 25 years, nobody noticed. When scientists learned that high blood cholesterol was associated with heart disease, they immediate black-listed all foods with high cholesterol content. It took 25 years of study to figure out – oops, we were wrong! You just didn’t really hear the “oops we were wrong” but instead you heard of another great danger – saturated fat! It became evident that cholesterol in food by itself was not the culprit after all — the real great evil was saturated fat, This is what had a much bigger effect on blood cholesterol when it was discovered that full-fat dairy products and fatty meats are loaded with saturated fat and that triggers the body to produce cholesterol.

This is the problem with analysis. The can conclude that everyone who has eaten a carrot eventually dies. That is an absolutely correct statement. They study one component and draw a correlation and thus produce the definitive relationship. They did that with interest rates. Higher rates means the stock market will decline. Oops. The Fed just raised rates and the Dow made a new high. Interesting! See it is the carrot paradox.

Money Theory

In economics, we had the Quantity of Money Theory that has driven central banks into Quantitative Easing expecting inflation and after 10 years of desperately trying to stimulate inflation, they have been beaten to a pulp by deflation. As always, they make a false simple assumption at the outset which then leads to the false result. They also fail to comprehend that there is the contraction within the economy creating deflation from technology advances. The work force is stagnant and unless they stay current with technology, they will quickly find themselves UNEMPLOYABLE with no useful skills.

GOP Georgia Turnout Stuns Media and Pollsters – 260,000 Votes Cast…


[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link)

That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article.  That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out.

(Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves.

Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead.

[…]  Unlike in some other races, however, it wasn’t because Democratic voters didn’t show up. More than 259,000 votes have been tallied as of Wednesday afternoon, considerably more than the 193,000 votes in the first round of voting in April.  (read more)

If you are wondering why the media seems to have begun waffling on their ‘muh Russia conspiracy’ narrative in the last 48 hours, those GA vote turnout results are the reason.

It is beginning to sink in with the moonbats that the rest of the entire nation can see the ridiculous construct of their moonbattery.  The majority of America is laughing at them. The majority of America supports the common sense principles President Trump is fighting for.

When the Democrats combine the ideological drumbeat of their left-wing moonbat leadership with the manipulative intentions of moonbat media pollsters, it becomes only a matter of time before the atomic sledgehammer of reality crushes their tenuous echo-chamber.

This seemingly never-ending cycle of moonbattery continues.

Congressional Black Caucus Refuses White House Invitation for Meeting…


Three months ago the congressional black caucus met with President Trump, discussed their goals, objectives and interests, and agreed to a follow-up meeting.

The White House extended the invitation for the follow-up, and the congressional black caucus now refuses to meet.

Apparently the entrenched political identity games of the CBC are stronger than their responsibility to represent their constituents.

Oh well...  Looks like we all have to keep on MAGA without the divisive interests of the race-baiting congressional black caucus.

Mark Steyn Weighs In On Special Election Outcomes…


Making America Great Again continues to run up against the reality of DC UniParty roadblocks.  Both Democrats and Republicans are procrastinating while hoping for any excuse not to participate in America-First policy advancement.

trump-convention-4The election result in Georgia’s sixth district is yet another example of Trump supporters removing excuses the DC UniParty puts forth; yet the DC apparatus is so entrenched in their opposition to President Trump’s policy agenda, they sit idle spinning various congressional hearings-to-nowhere in an increasingly transparent effort to avoid action.

Anyone who believes Democrats own exclusive opposition to Donald Trump are completely ignoring the deliberate construct of the 2015/2016 republican primary. There are just as many -if not more- natural enemies within the Republican apparatus as there are within the Democrat group. “America-First” is antithetical to the UniParty.

Again, prior to Donald Trump there was one party in Washington DC, “The UniParty”. President Donald Trump represented a second party; an independent approach toward legislative and economic priority.  Trump was not a third party choice, Trump was the opportunity to finally get a second party in DC.

the-big-club-2

The legislative priorities of the UniParty are driven by lobbyists.  Those same lobbyists remain in place regardless of election outcomes.  The lack of forward progress on Trump economic policy initiatives is specifically because congress doesn’t set the legislative priorities, the lobbyists do.

President Donald Trump winning the November ’16 election threw a monkey wrench into the entire DC system…. The modern legislative machine was/is frozen in place.

The “America First” policies represented by candidate Donald Trump are not within the legislative constructs coming from the authors of the legislation. Congress has no bills to advance, no actual agenda to work on, because all of the myriad of bills and briefs written for action are not in line with President Trump policy.

That’s why congress is not passing any significant economic legislation for President Trump to sign.  The exact opposite is true.  The UniParty congressional representatives are procrastinating on policy while looking for, waiting for, any defeat of President Trump they can use as an excuse to explain why they are not advancing his ‘America-First’ agenda.

There’s no entity within DC writing legislation that is in-line with President Trump’s economic and foreign policy agenda. Exactly the opposite is true. All of the DC legislative briefs and constructs are antithetical to Trump policy.

There are hundreds of file boxes filled with thousands of legislative constructs that became worthless when Donald Trump won the election.

Those legislative constructs (briefs) representing tens of millions of dollars worth of time and influence and are now just sitting there piled up in boxes under desks and in closets amid K-Street and the congressional offices.

Any current legislation must be in-line with an entire new political perspective, and there’s no-one, no special interest or lobbying group, currently occupying DC office space with any interest in synergy with Trump policy.

Think about the larger ramifications within that truism.

That is also why there’s so much opposition.

Congress is biding time trying to run out the administration clock; and the media is willfully blind to their avoidance strategy because the corporate media is synergized with the UniParty objectives.

The ongoing ridiculous and increasingly futile Russian Election Investigation Hearings are merely how congress is justifying their time spent in DC.   They need this justification because without the hearings, without the illusion of doing something, there would be transparent sunlight upon their do-nothingness.

What’s really going on is an avoidance strategy to keep away from working on actionable legislative priorities that are antithetical to their UniParty power and purchased activity.

Meanwhile, brilliantly, through election victories and support for the executive, the aggregate U.S. electorate keep defeating the UniParty procrastination excuses.

As frustrating as this is, we must continue to take this approach.  However, don’t get fooled into showing appreciation for the insufferable Congressional Hearing dolts like Trey Gowdy et al, who are doing nothing more than putting on a pantomime to keep you satiated and distracted.

Several months ago we highlighted a maneuver being attempted by the Crony-Constitutionalist group within the DC UniParty.  A specific agenda being put forth by heavily financed operative, Senator Mike Lee. – READ HERE –  In January we highlighted the economic efforts of the second group which synergizes with Lee’s efforts from the other half of the republican wing of the UniParty.

♦ Senator Mike Lee works to block taxation on imports by removing the tariff authority of President Donald Trump.  This aids his multinational sponsors on Wall Street.  Senator Lee trying to stop Trump from leveling taxes on imports, under the false auspices of constitutional authority. [Made irrelevant by the 1913 passage of the 17th amendment]

♦ Speaker Paul Ryan works to block taxation on imports by manipulating import taxation into a larger “comprehensive corporate tax bill“, and establishing the loopholes, constructed by the same multinational sponsors.  Wall Street then utilizes these constructs to avoid the payment of import taxes.  Watch closely:

(Via Wall Street Journal) The measure, known as border adjustment, would tax imports and exempt exports as part of a broader plan to encourage companies to locate jobs and production in the U.S. But Mr. Trump, in his first comments on the subject, called it “too complicated.” –link

Mike Lee represents the Senate approach.  Speaker Ryan represents the House approach.

However, both approaches are geared toward the same benefactors.  Those benefactors are the lobbyists who pay Republicans for legislative priorities.  Who is that…. Tom Donohue.

For those who don’t know, it is special interest groups, lawyers as lobbyists like the U.S. CoC, who actually write the legislation.  Politicians vote on legislation, they don’t actually put pen to paper and write it – that’s what the congressional lobbyists do.

In both taxation constructs above Mike Lee and Paul Ryan are opposing Donald Trump.  Does this example help to better understand the fallacy of false choice?    It’s the same concept as the GOPe splitter strategy to ensure a specific, controlled and approved ideological candidate wins the primary.

There’s no difference between John Cornyn and Kevin McCarthy; they are beholden to the same group.  There’s also no difference between Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan, they too are beholden to the same corporate interests.  That’s why Cruz and Ryan created Trade Promotion Authority together, the vehicle to pass Donohue’s TPP trade deal.

However, the good news is President Donald Trump is keenly aware of this political alignment.  Heck, he should be… in many ways his understanding of the ‘fallacy of false choice’ is the entire reason Donald Trump finally ran for President:

[…]  “Anytime I hear border adjustment, I don’t love it,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Friday. “Because usually it means we’re going to get adjusted into a bad deal. That’s what happens.”

Independent analyses of the Republican tax plan say it would lead the dollar to appreciate further—which would lower the cost of imported goods, offsetting the effects of the tax on retailers and others.

In his interview with the Journal on Friday, Mr. Trump said the U.S. dollar was already “too strong” in part because China holds down its currency, the yuan. “Our companies can’t compete with them now because our currency is too strong. And it’s killing us.”

The yuan is “dropping like a rock,” Mr. Trump said, dismissing recent Chinese actions to support it as done simply “because they don’t want us to get angry.”

Mr. Trump appears to be breaking with a recent tradition of presidents refraining from comments on the dollar’s level. The dollar is up 4% against a broad basket of currencies since he was elected, and roughly 25% since mid-2014.

The dollar and border adjustment tax are both central issues as Mr. Trump moves to strengthen U.S. standing in the global economy.  (more)

President Trump knows these multi-thousand-page legislative constructs are filled with loop holes allowing Wall Street’s multinationals to skirt around direct import taxation.  Delayed cargo diversion, via geographic third party delivery broker, is one method they use to avoid them.

A direct tariff is specific, direct and generally unavoidable.  Wall Street doesn’t like tariffs and crony-constitutionalists lie about them vociferously.

The opposition groups (Wall Street Multinational banks and corporations) who are funding the UniParty endeavors of Mike Lee and Paul Ryan etc., have a specific desire to keep the U.S. dollar inflated.  All of these multinationals and large economic nations hold trade dollars in their depositories – it is against their interests to see the dollar drop in value.

Wall Street benefits from a higher dollar – Main Street benefits from a lower dollar.

Remember, there are trillions of globalist dollars at stake – and the DC UniParty, all of it, will fight tooth and nail on behalf of their multinational benefactors.

The frustration level with congress is currently at a low simmer because the larger national electorate haven’t realized all of the current DC action is a Potemkin Village.  However, we must not cut off our noses to spite our face.  Trump supporters need to be prepared to continue supporting the objectives of the presidency as more and more people wake up to realize what’s going on.

Additionally, as the ridiculous avoidance strategy of the ‘muh Russia‘ narrative begins to collapse, we must prepare to go to the mattresses to force congressional action.
