You don’t have to be a trumpster to realize the establishment’s TDS has nothing to do with its stated problems with Trump. After all, racism, mass murder torture etc under the watchful gaze of the “free press” have been part of the empire’s status quo for decades. In fact the media hysteria around Trump has been the most hopeful sign of his presidency. He has yet to deliver the real goods although he’s certainly better than hillary would have been. I remain hopeful.
The Donald has been on a red hot twitter rampage, and he’s completely justified. Actually, we didn’t think the Russian Collusion Hoax could get any stupider until we saw the New York Times’ Friday evening bushwhack.
The trio of authors, apparently self-tortured victims of the Trump Derangement Syndrome, actually had the gall to print a story in the once and former Gray Lady of journalistic rectitude which was nothing more than an ugly smear on the sitting President of the United States—one that would have done Joe McCarthy proud:
In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as FBI director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.
The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.
It doesn’t get lower than that. The only thing that they didn’t mention was presidential Treason, but it’s hard to say that “working in behalf of Russia against American interests” would constitute anything less.
So exactly what did the trio of wet behind the ears nincompoops at the New York Times—Adam Goldman, Michael Schmidt and Nicholas Fandos—dig up from the diarrhetic bowels of the FBI that warranted the above characterization?
Why, it is apparently the following, which is surely a red hot smoking gun. That is, one that condemns the FBI, not Trump; and shows that the NYT, which once courageously published the Pentagon Papers and had earned the above sobriquet for its journalistic stateliness, sense of responsibility and possession of high virtue, has degenerated into a War Party shill—not to say the journalistic equivalent of a comfort woman: Mr. Trump had caught the attention of FBI counterintelligence agents when…
…he called on Russia during a campaign news conference in July 2016 to hack into the emails of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Mr. Trump had refused to criticize Russia on the campaign trail, praising President Vladimir V. Putin. And investigators had watched with alarm as the Republican Party softened its convention platform on the Ukraine crisis in a way that seemed to benefit Russia.
Well, for crying out loud!
Any journalist worth his salt would know that Trump’s July 2016 shout-out to the Russians was a campaign joke. At best, it was merely an attempt to cleverly state in one more way the running GOP theme about Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails. How many times before that had Sean Hannity delivered his riff about Hillary’s alleged hammer-smashing of 13 devices and acid-washing with BleachBit of the missing emails?
More importantly, how in the world of constitutional government, free speech, and contested elections does Trump’s refusal to criticize a foreign leader that we we’re not at war with constitute something worthy of a counter-intelligence investigation by the FBI? …
He should have said “not CURRENTLY at war with”, after all Russia is high on the “liberal” (national socialist?) hit list of non-conformists.
The reckoning for the Clintons I have dreamed of for a quarter of a century finally approaches with whistleblowing and documents about the slush fund known as the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The ability of the Clintons to blow off charges of criminality will be crippled by the latest evidence revealed to be in the hands of prosecutors. With the former first couple humiliated by their inability to draw a decent crowd anymore, and plenty of other Democrats anxious to move on and put this embarrassment behind them, it is starting to look as though karma finally is catching up with them.
John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings….
How to take the zillions of years of adaptive evolution encoded in the human body for granted and “push the envelope” of what constitutes food and nutrition. It’s all for scyence. Don’t blaspheme the holy religion of blind trust in profit-driven corporate scyence.
Western food and medicine are not what they used to be. Our staple crops have been bastardized, adulterated, genetically mutated, and sprayed with toxins that kill everything but the plant, and that’s mainly because the plants contain the same toxins now, thanks to biotechnology firms screwing with Mother Nature.
Then there’s petroleum-based food colorings, synthetic flavorings, artificial sweeteners, bleached-white food, toxin-loaded gluten (that stops you up for days), microwaveable meals, monosodium glutamate (MSG), and the list just goes on forever.
Our mainstream medicine has gone from bad to worse, with most prescription drugs laced with deadly, addictive heroin (think opiates) or chemicals that cause side effects that are worse than the condition being “managed.”
Most people just eat and drink “whatever” and then rush to the M.D. for some painkillers, blood thinners, cholesterol-reducing meds, anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, flu shots, vaccines, and surgery, hoping to stave off the inevitable – which is, ironically, preventable diseases and disorders. Wow.
The worst part is that most of what people think helps their health totally wipes out their immune system, bringing on other sicknesses, and enabling pathogens, parasites, bacteria, and viruses to drag their health down into the gutter, sometimes for good. So here we go, with the top 10 immune system killers of all time….
