For the past couple of years, Leftists within the medical academic and professional community have been pushing the Democrats’ agenda when it comes to controlling Americans’ behavior….
Included in these behavioral changes is how patients are expected to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership is one organization fighting this push to enlist physicians who assist in turning guns into a ‘public health problem’ so that big government, nanny-state Democrats can use that as their impetus to push for more gun control.
In a letter to Virginia physicians, the organization made an appeal to resist efforts by the Left-wing medical establishment to take part in the Democrats’ push to criminalize gun ownership.
“Our profession is being hijacked in the service of gun confiscation,” the letter begins. “Instead of focusing on mental health (two-thirds of gun-related deaths are suicides), and inner-city gang- and drug-related gun deaths (nearly one-third of gun-related deaths), the Bloomberg-financed and Governor Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam-sponsored so-called ‘gun safety legislation’ is nothing more than a pile of ‘citizen endangerment laws.’”
For weeks since Democrats won control over the state legislature — Northam is a Democrat so now the party controls all law-making apparatuses — they have been pledging to introduce a bevy of new gun control measures.
“Possession of guns and magazines in lawful common use will become felonious, and the removal of state pre-emption will allow each locality to capriciously decide where you can carry” a firearm, the DRGO letter said….
Even without the medical tie-in, a little knowledge of the history of US foreign policy in latin america, vietnam, iraq, afghanistan, iran etc, in the context of the government-sponsored debt-impoverishment of the country via endless war, the government-sanctioned decimation of american industry via export to china, and the government’s ongoing war against the US dollar via sanctions, goes a long way to explaining why disarmament of the empire’s peasants would certainly prove orders-of-magnitude more lethal than all the (government-staged and non-government staged) gun massacres in US history. Self-described “liberals” ought to be the first in line to point this out. But maybe they’re not liberal after all.
But at any rate, cooption of medicine into this democidal agenda is so rich in irony it would be the stuff of comedy if it wasn’t so evil.
To reiterate: circumcision, obstetrical abuse and psychiatry are certainly the most important causes of (non-government-staged) violence and “mental illness” in society. But you’re not supposed to know that. So shut up and take your medicine.
A former Iran analyst for the central intelligence agency said yesterday that his reports characterizing Shah Pahlevi as thirsty for power and a megalomaniac were repeatedly rejected by the agency as being contrary to official US policy.
Jesse Leaf said in an interview that for five years had had been the chief CIA analyst on Iran before resigning from the agency in 1973…. A spokesman for the CIA confirmed that Mr. Leaf had been an employee there but said, “We will not discuss former employees.”
Mr. Leaf also said in the interview that he and his colleagues knew of the torture of Iranian dissenters by Savak, the Iranian secret police set up during the late 1950’s by the Shah with help from the CIA. Furthermore, Mr. Leaf said, a senior CIA official was involved in instructing officials in the Savak on torture techniques, although Mr. Leaf said that to his knowledge no americans did any of the torturing. The CIA’s torture seminars, Mr. Leaf said, “were based on German torture techniques from World War II.”
The Shah himself was “one of our sources” of information, Mr. Leaf said. “He was a regular contact for a case officer.”
Mr. Leaf said that because of the CIA’s complacency about the Shah, no one considered protesting about the Savak’s use of torture. “Why should we protest? We were on their side, remember?”
Although the Iranian use of torture was widely known inside the agency, Mr. Leaf said, he knew of no Americans who admitted that they witnessed such treatment. “I do remember seeing and being told of people who were there seeing the rooms and being told of torture. And I know that the torture rooms were toured and it was all paid for by the USA.”
Mr. Leaf said he decided to resign from the CIA after receiving an adverse fitness report in 1973. His basic complaint, he said, was that “policy pretty much determines reporting rather than the other way around.”

You’ll be shocked to learn the Department of Justice’s “inquiry” into Hillary Clinton’s den of corruption reportedly “found nothing of consequence!”
Rather than “lock her up” they’ve decided to let her off.
A Justice Department inquiry launched more than two years ago to mollify conservatives clamoring for more investigations of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.
John Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, was tapped in November 2017 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into concerns raised by President Trump and his allies in Congress that the FBI had not fully pursued cases of possible corruption at the Clinton Foundation and during Clinton’s time as secretary of state, when the U.S. government decided not to block the sale of a company called Uranium One.
As a part of his review, Huber examined documents and conferred with federal law enforcement officials in Little Rock who were handling a meandering probe into the Clinton Foundation, people familiar with the matter said. Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.
It’s just a coincidence their donations have plummeted since Hillary’s defeat in 2016!
There was absolutely no pay to play going on, folks!
The effective conclusion of his investigation, with no criminal charges or other known impacts, is likely to roil some in the GOP who had hoped the prosecutor would vindicate their long-held suspicions about a political rival. Trump, though, has largely shifted his focus to a different federal prosecutor tapped to do a separate, special investigation: U.S. attorney in Connecticut John Durham, who Attorney General William P. Barr assigned last year to explore the origins of the FBI’s 2016 probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.
That FBI investigation was being supervised by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in late 2017, when Trump and his supporters were pressuring senior law enforcement officials to appoint a second special counsel to pursue Clinton.
It’s amazing how those Q-Anon believing folks still think mass prosecutions are just around the corner. While it’s technically possible John Durham could find some sort of malfeasance, so far Barr seems to just be running down the clock.

My money is on the system being rotten to the core and thoroughly compromised by the Epstein network.
Not only is the evidence overwhelming but you’ll find your predictions are a lot more accurate if that’s your operating assumption.
Gold has seen an impressive price spike in the past 18 months, and if you are wondering what the cause is, you’ll find almost everyone has a different theory. That said, certain factors in historic gold rallies tend to be ignored. For example, the mainstream financial media often hyper focuses on stimulus measures by the Federal Reserve as the cause, but I would remind people that the most recent upward trend in gold started while the Fed was tightening liquidity and raising interest rates, not stimulating. Also, many analysts suggest that precious metals absorb investment cash flows when equities are sliding. Yet, for now, stocks have been rallying for the past year as gold prices also trend upward. So, what is the mainstream missing here?
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that gold is not necessarily just an inflation hedge; it is also a crisis hedge. As economic and geopolitical uncertainty grows, gold prices skyrocket. The past decade has seen uncertainty and instability that the world has not seen for almost a century. The problem is, the average American is oblivious to this state of affairs. They have no idea how bad the situation can get, as they assume there are checks and balances to counter any potential disaster in the financial structure. They assume that the government or the banks will step in.
However, there are signals that tell us that this will not be the case. In fact, it appears that central banks around the world are preparing for an event that they either cannot quantify yet or simply refuse to warn the public about. This is evident in the acceleration in gold stockpiling by banking institutions.
