The coup d’etat has been successful.
The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over.
The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.
When in doubt, follow the money trail.
It always points the way.
Every successive president starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt has been bought—lock, stock and barrel—and made to dance to the tune of the Deep State.
Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC.
Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.
Just recently, for instance, Trump agreed to sell Saudi Arabia more than $110 billion in military weapons.
Meanwhile, Trump—purportedly in an effort to balance the budget in 10 years—wants to slash government funding for programs for the poor, ranging from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments.
The military doesn’t have to worry about tightening its belt, however. No, the military’s budget—with its trillion dollar wars, its $125 billion in administrative waste, and its contractor-driven price gouging that hits the American taxpayer where it hurts the most—will continue to grow, thanks to Trump.
This is how you keep the Deep State in power.
The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, the military will get more militaristic, America’s endless wars will get more endless, and the prospect of peace will grow ever dimmer.
As for the terrorists, they will keep on being played for pawns as long as Saudi Arabia remains their breeding ground and America remains the source of their weapons, training and know-how. …
It’s difficult enough raising a child in a world ravaged by war, disease, poverty and hate, but when you add the police state into the mix, it becomes near impossible to guard against the growing unease that some of the monsters of our age come dressed in government uniforms. The lesson being taught to our youngest—and most impressionable—citizens is this: in the American police state, you’re either a prisoner (shackled, controlled, ordered about, limited in what you can do and say, and your life is not your own) or you’re a prison bureaucrat (politician, police officer, judge, jailer, spy, profiteer, and so on). Then there is what kids are being taught in school. Unfortunately, as constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead makes clear, America’s public schools have become microcosms of the American police state, containing almost every aspect of the militarized, intolerant, senseless, overcriminalized, legalistic, surveillance-riddled, totalitarian landscape that plagues us adults. Indeed, if your child is fortunate enough to survive his encounter with the public schools with his individuality and freedoms intact, you should count yourself fortunate. Most students are not so lucky. …
The russians are absolutely right to be very concerned. The ever-treasonous luciferian puppets, the neocons, are preparing a first strike on russia per the strategy published in the premiere US foreign policy journal in 2006: https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/united-states/2006-03-01/rise-us-nuclear-primacy and it appears they’re content to have the rest of us take heavy casualties here and in europe to achieve their soggy-wet dreams of global empire.
“Fifty years ago, the streets of Leningrad taught me one thing: If a fight is inevitable, you must strike first.” Vladimir Putin
In George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel, 1984, information that no longer is consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is chucked down the Memory Hole. In the real American dystopia in which we currently live, the information is never reported at all.
On April 26—16 days ago—Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the Moscow International Security Conference that the Operations Command of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia.
The Times-Gazett in Ashland, Ohio, was the only US print media that a Google search could turn up that reported this most alarming of all announcements. A Google search turned up no reports on US TV, and none on Canadian, Australian, European, or any other media except RT and Internet sites.
I have been unable to find any report that any US Senator or Representative or any European, Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a voice of concern.
No one in Washington got on the telephone to tell Putin that this was all a mistake, that the US was not preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia, or ask Putin how this serious situation could be defused.
Americans do not even know about it, except for my readers.
I would have expected at least that the CIA would have planted the story in the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR that General Poznihir was expressing his personal opinion, nothing to be taken seriously. But apparently Americans and their European vassals are not to even know that such an accussation was made.
As I reported some time ago and more recently in my column about North Korea, the Chinese leadership has also concluded that the US intends a nuclear first strike against China.
Alone either Russia or China can destroy the US. If they act together, the destruction of the US would be redundant. What is the intelligence, if any, and morality, clearly none, of the US leadership that recklessly and irresponsibly invites Russia and China to preempt Washington’s attack on them with an attack on the US?
Surely not even insouciant Americans are so stupid as to think that Russia and China will just sit there and wait for Washington’s nuclear attack. …
The entire organic community of the United States just won a massive victory that many may not yet even realize. Even though the DARK Act was passed by Obama and some Senate goons to prohibit labeling of GMOs nationwide, the US Court of Appeals just passed a law that enables states and counties to completely ban genetically engineered crops from ever being planted in the first place. Think about that for a minute. You see, back in the year 2000, Monsanto undermined all US organic and conventional farming by claiming that manipulating genomic material of plants did not introduce dangerous bacteria or even plant “pests” into the equation, but their noxious “Frankenfoods” prove otherwise. So biotechnology giants figured a way to not have their cancer-causing, Alzheimer’s-causing, pesticide-laden plants classified as a risk to the environment or humans. But now, none of that really matters anymore.
Thanks to the Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals and their recent interpretation of the Plant Protection Act, all U.S. states, counties, and local communities can actually ban (or regulate) the planting of any and all commercially-grown genetically engineered crops, no matter what the feds or Monsanto claims about GMO….
You might not be willing to buy GMO foods, but you’ll still be spending money on them thanks to a new congressional bill that allocates $3 million of taxpayer dollars to “consumer outreach and education regarding agricultural biotechnology.”
A Pew study recently discovered that 39 percent of people in the U.S. think GMOs are bad for your health, and now the FDA – and those who line its pockets – want to rid the American public of this very inconvenient belief. Organic food is growing in popularity, and this is making them increasingly nervous.
More than 65 food and agriculture groups sent a letter to congressional leaders pushing them to add support for agricultural bioscience in this budget, and it was probably hard for them to say no when you consider the fact that Big Ag interests have donated more than $26 million to political campaigns, including congressmen who are on the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee. Subcommittee Chair Representative Robert B. Aderholt (R-Ala.), for example, was given $10,000 by Monsanto last year.
The letter says the campaign is necessary because of all the “misinformation” that is floating around about the topic. Big Ag sure knows a lot about misinformation. In fact, firms like Monsanto are experts at getting their own pro-GMO message out to the public, even going so far as to enlist a team of internet trolls whose sole purpose is to find anyone who posts negative comments about pesticides like Roundup and GMOs online and attack them. They even have a name for this effort – “let nothing go” – and they’re targeting everything from widely-read news articles to people’s comments on Facebook.
The FDA is not an educational body. Its purpose is regulating the safety of our nation’s food and medical devices. It’s already failing miserably at what it was originally set up to do, and now it’s taking on additional tasks?…
Last week, Private Investigator Rod Wheeler appeared on Fox5 news in DC with an update in the unsolved murder of DNC IT expert Seth Rich, claiming proof exists on Rich’s laptop proving he was Julian Assange’s source for leaked DNC emails during the 2016 election – an account in direct conflict to the Russian hacking narrative based on a discredited IT firm’s report.
Wheeler walked back his statements the next day, however the fuse was already lit… Weaponized autists on Reddit and 4chan began furiously digging back into the Seth Rich case for clues in the still unsolved murder – and they went deep.
Among the findings were Seth Rich’s Reddit account, email addresses, and Twitter accounts – one of which was in support of candidate Bernie Sanders. As an aside – before joining the DNC, Rich moved to Washington DC to take a job with polling and research firmGreenberg Quinlan Rosner – whose founder Stanley Greenberg was a senior advisor to President Bill Clinton.
Reddit’s the_donald goes dark
As Seth Rich posts reached a crescendo Friday night – dominating the front page of /r/The_Donald, the Conde Nast-linked website shut the ‘subreddit’ down for around 12 hours following a moderator’s unrelated declaration of war on the rest of Reddit over censorship – completely killing the Seth Rich momentum. When The_Donald was reopened, ‘officially’ to aid the Seth Rich effort – the offending moderator had been banned and two other mods were removed from their positions. Seth Rich posts, however, are notably sparse. Oh, and Redditedited Seth Rich’s account during the lockout.
Meanwhile in New Zealand
Kim Dotcom is pissed – and has been plotting revenge against Hillary Clinton, Obama, and Hollywood after being targeted in the biggest copyright infringement case in history – which included a massiveillegal (and then legal) raid on his New Zealand mansion by 76 armed officers and two helicopters.
Also seized were giant screen TVs and works of art, US$175m (NZ$218m) in cash, the contents of 64 bank accounts world-wide, including BNZ and Kiwibank accounts in New Zealand, Government bonds and money from numerous PayPal accounts.
Police said last night up to $11m in cash was restrained in various accounts. –stuff.co.nz
Dotcom was arrested and thrown in prison for almost two months, and has been fighting ongoing court battles and pressure to extradite him to the USA ever since. In December of 2016, New Zealand’s district court announced Mr. Dotcom was eligible for extradition – a decision upheld on appeal by NZ’s High Court.
The Mega founder has stepped forward to offer proof that Seth Rich was one of Wikileaks’ sources during the 2016 presidential election.
Sean Hannity has offered Dotcom a national platform (which Kim retweeted)
Stay tuned. Public invitation Kim Dotcom to be a guest on radio and TV. #GameChanger Buckle up destroy Trump media. Sheep that u all are!!! https://twitter.com/kimdotcom/status/865989988554428416 …Dotcom’s offer to Congress
… In the study’s summary the authors assured parents, “Current studies do not support the hypothesis that multiple vaccines overwhelm, weaken, or ‘use up’ the immune system. On the contrary, young infants have an enormous capacity to respond to multiple vaccines, as well as to the many other challenges present in the environment.” The authors also asserted that, “[E]ach infant would have the theoretical capacity to respond to about 10 000 vaccines at any one time.” [Emphasis added] …
