Atkisson: Timeline of Collusion against Trump

It’s easy to find timelines that detail Trump-Russia collusion developments. Here are links to two of them I recommend:

Politifact Russia-Trump timeline

Washington Post Russia-Trump timeline

On the other side, evidence has emerged in the past year that makes it clear there were organized efforts to collude against candidate Donald Trump–and then President Trump. For example:

  • Anti-Russian Ukrainians allegedly helped coordinate and execute a campaign against Trump in partnership with the Democratic National Committee and news reporters.
  • A Yemen-born ex-British spy reportedly delivered political opposition research against Trump to reporters, Sen. John McCain, and the FBI; the latter of which used the material–in part–to obtain wiretaps against one or more Trump-related associates.
  • There were orchestrated leaks of anti-Trump information and allegations to the press, including by ex-FBI Director James Comey.
  • The U.S. intel community allegedly engaged in questionable surveillance practices and politially-motivated “unmaskings” of U.S. citizens, including Trump officials.
  • Alleged conflicts of interests have surfaced regarding FBI officials who cleared Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information and who investigated Trump’s alleged Russia ties.

But it’s not so easy to find a timeline pertinent to the investigations into these events.

Here’s a work in progress…..

Now Mueller is going after Alex Jones

Unbelievable.   For all his blind spots, Jones has done more to save this country from its own fascistic tendencies than anyone else alive, not least through his coverage of the fake “war on terror”.

This place is turning into a banana republic.   Who will point out the emperor’s nakedness?

By the way, his health supplements are top notch.  From my own experience, DNA force, brain force, knockout, super male vitality and their probiotic (can’t remember the name) really do work surprisingly well without side effects.    All natural herbal based.  They’ve definitely improved my life.  Good luck finding such real food-medicines at a pharmacy or even at a health food store.   There’s an awful lot of crap out there and a lot of malevolent corporate influences.   Jones runs his own operation and it’s not a publicly traded company so the conflicts of interest you’d find at a typical supplement manufacturer are less likely.   Hopefully he’s aware however that his suppliers are being targeted.

Anyway, just a plug for two worthy causes: your health and his media operation.

Icke on leaving the matrix

Most people consider him to be way out there.   But from an information/metaphorical perspective he makes a hell of a lot of sense.   When he speaks of reptilian aliens for instance, I think of the human reptilian (fear/survival based) brain and its alienation from its own substrate, which is the physiological manifestation of love.   But who knows?   Awareness of ignorance is the first step to knowledge.  In any case, I suspect even reptiles think at a higher level than the human drones which service the machinery of power.   It takes a lot of brainwashing to entrap any creature in an internalized skinner box.

One thing I’d like him to point out is that the fear which entraps the enforcers of the matrix in their policing and military roles exists because they see no alternative options for physical survival.   They have families, children etc who depend on them for food and shelter, and they see the consequences of being on the “outside” in the slums of mexico city and the mass graves in guatemala.   The system monopolizes all perceived options and so they see no alternatives.   That’s why it functions as a “matrix”, it seems to represent all possibilities, especially all economic possibilities.

This perception is enforced via laws which purport to protect the peasants from each other.  Open a lemonade stand or deliver fresh (i.e. raw) milk to your neighbor and you’re an instant criminal ( ) because of the remote possibility of contamination.   Smoke a joint and they throw you in prison “for your own good” or for the sake of “the greater good”.   Much better to eat GMO and pesticides and psych drugs along with the rest of the herd so you can be ensured of a slow, productive and profitable death instead of the  remote possibility of an enriched and happy life being prematurely terminated despite the best efforts of people who actually care about whether you live or die.

But suppose it was “legal” to sell milk to your neighbor or open a lemonade stand or build shelters without govt/bankster meddling and skimming.   Such anarchy would naturally lead to autonomous, self-reinforcing and resilient economic flows distributed throughout the countryside.   Imagine that.  An economic alternative to mass suicide which is actually more resilient and dependable than anything under centralized control.   How could armies function in such an environment?

How is it possible that in a purportedly free society, it’s illegal to sell lemonade in the street?   Obviously the kids are the real revolutionaries and always have been.   That’s why the system tortures and traumatizes them at birth, to entrap them in fear before they can even love.

Turkey Repatriates all Gold from USA

After Venezuela, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands prudently repatriated a substantial portion (if not all) of their physical gold held at the NY Fed or other western central banks in recent years, one month ago Turkey announced that it too has decided to repatriate its gold stored in the US Federal Reserve and deliver it to the Istanbul Stock Exchange, according to reports in Turkey’s Yeni Safak. As we reported at the time, it wouldn’t be the first time Turkey has asked the NY Fed to ship the country’s gold back: in recent years, Turkey repatriated 220 tons of gold from abroad, of which 28.7 tons was brought back from the US last year.

And now, according to a report by the Swiss Schweiz am Wochenende, the repatriation is complete with the Turkish central bank withdrawing all of its gold reserves from the U.S. due to the “tense political situation.” However, in a strange twist, instead of moving the physical gold to Istanbul as the Turkish press reported in April, the Swiss newspaper notes that around 19 tons of Turkish gold is now stored at the Basel-based Bank for International Settlements.

It was not immediately clear why Turkey would shift its gold from the NY Fed to the BIS, whose historical “gold rehypothecation” tendencies have been well documented over the years.

According to the latest IMF data, Turkey’s total gold reserves are estimated at 596 tons in May, up 5 tons since April, and worth just under $23 billion, rising 40% over the past year. This makes Ankara the 11th largest gold holder, behind the Netherlands and ahead of India.

Turkey’s gold repatriation come at a sensitive time for Turkey’s currency, the lira, which has been pounded for the past month, and plunged to all time lows against both the dollar last week amid double-digit inflation in Turkey, as the central bank continues to be terrified of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and refuses to raise rates.

Meanwhile, Erdogan has taken a tough stance against the US currency, criticizing dollar loans and stating that international loans should be given in gold instead.

“I made a suggestion at a G20 meeting. I asked: Why do we make all loans in dollars? Let’s use another currency. I suggest that the loans should be made based on gold,” Erdoğan said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Istanbul on April 16, Turkey’s Hurriyet reported.

In what some saw an appeal for a gold standard by the Turkish president, Erdogan added that “with the dollar the world is always under exchange rate pressure. We should save states and nations from this exchange rate pressure. Gold has never been a tool of oppression throughout history.”

In other words, Erdogan’s latest excuse for the crashing Turkish Lira was that there was not enough physical gold back home to launch a gold-backed currency. And now that Turkey just repatriated even more gold from New YOrk (even if it mysteriously ended up in Basel), Erdogan will be able to launch a gold-backed currency if he so desires. Unfortunately, as we said last month “all signs point to the gold being repatriated only so it can be raided, pillaged and promptly deposited in offshore vaults by members of the ruling oligarchy.”

Seen in this light, one wonders if Erdogan has not cut a deal with the BIS to “deliver” Turkey’s gold to Basel, providing some much needed yellow metal in a world in which the ongoing global physical gold shortage prompted banks to scrap reporting the gold forward rate (GOFO) – a benchmark of physical gold scarcity – in January 2015….
