Trump Declassifying Trove Of FBI Memos Exposing Steele’s Motivations (JTN)

Delivering in his final days on one of his last unfulfilled promises, President Trump is declassifying a massive trove of FBI documents showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The memos to be released as early as Friday include FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper. The president authorized the release of a foot-high stack of internal FBI and DOJ documents that detail significant flaws in the investigation and provide a detailed timeline of when the FBI first realized the Steele dossier was problematic, multiple government officials told Just the News.

Among the bombshell revelations is an admission by Steele that he violated his confidential human source agreement with the FBI and leaked information from his dossier to the news media in the final weeks of the election because he wanted to counteract new revelations in the Hillary Clinton email scandal that were hurting her election efforts. The former foreign intelligence officer made the confession in a fall 2017 interview with agents. Steele, who was hired by Clinton’s campaign law firm to compile anti-Trump dossiers attempting to link Trump to Russian influence, told agents he had two clients at the time — Clinton and the FBI — and chose the interests of the Democratic candidate over the bureau in leaking.

Steele told the bureau that then-FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the Clinton email probe in fall 2016 triggered him to leak his dossier details in what he described as a taking-the-gloves-off moment. The FBI interview summary makes clear that Steele, a British citizen, was allegiant to Clinton, did not like Trump and believed a Trump presidency would be negative for his homeland and thus made a decision to meddle in the U.S. election by leaking information to the news media. The leaks, which led to Steele’s termination as an FBI informant, have been known for more than a year, but his motivation for leaking was hidden in the classified documents. His admission that the Russia collusion narrative, later debunked by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was injected into the public as a means of counteracting Clinton’s email scandal corroborates other information obtained by the CIA.

The soon-to-be-released records also expose a tantalizing connection between Steele, his primary source and one of the Democrats’ key impeachment witnesses in the Ukraine scandal, former Trump National Security Council Russia expert Fiona Hill. Steele divulged to the FBI that he was introduced by Hill to his primary sub-source of information for his anti-Trump dossier and that he later told Hill that the source had provided information for his now infamous memos. [..] The documents also will settle a long-debated question in Washington about whether the FBI’s tactics amounted to spying on the Trump campaign. Tasking instructions the FBI gave to Halper, an academic who long worked as an FBI informant, make clear he was instructed to infiltrate the Trump campaign by posing as someone who wanted to work for the GOP nominee and then targeting campaign advisers to find out what they knew about Trump or his campaign’s ties to Russia.

Trump Declassifies ‘Foot-High’ Stack Of Russiagate, Obamagate Documents (ZH)

President Trump has declassified and authorized the release of “more than a foot-high stack of documents” related to the Obama administration’s surveillance and espionage committed against the 2016 Trump campaign, as part of a larger campaign to discredit and undermine the incoming US president. According to journalist and Trump insider John Solomon, the documents would be released as soon as Friday, but no later than Monday. “He has delivered in a big way. More than a foot-high stack of documents he has authorized to be released by the FBI and the DOJ. These are the things that the FBI has tried to keep from the public for 4 years. They have amazing, big picture revelations,” Solomon told Fox News’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” According to Solomon’s website, Just The News, the release will support claims that the entire Russia narrative was created and leaked to the news media to upstage concerns over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

After Trump Bans, Facebook, Twitter See Combined $51 Billion In Losses (JTN)

Facebook and Twitter have lost a combined $51 billion in market cap following their bans of President Donald Trump last week as investors balked at the tech giants’ surprise censorship of Trump roughly two weeks before his term was set to end. Facebook bore the overwhelming brunt of the market plunge, according to Business Insider, seeing gargantuan losses of $47.6 billion following CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement that Trump would remain suspended from the social media platform “indefinitely,” until at least after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.


Twitter, meanwhile, saw its market cap plunge by $3.5 billion after it permanently suspended Trump from its servers due to claims that the president was inciting violence among his supporters with his posts. In the week since the bans were announced, users have reportedly been flocking to alternative social media sites, ones that have touted a commitment to censorship-free services in contrast to the heavier hands of the mainstream social media platforms.

People will contend this is just the Mexican president, and AP even tries to paint him off as a Trump sympathizer. But this is a global issue. Twitter and Facebook will soon be subject to strong regulations, or they will be banned from many countries.

“..the German leader found it “problematic” that corporate managers could deny someone access under rules not defined by law.”

Mexican President Mounts Campaign Against Social Media Bans (AP)

Mexico’s president vowed Thursday to lead an international effort to combat what he considers censorship by social media companies that have blocked or suspended the accounts of U.S. President Donald Trump. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration is reaching out to other government to form a common front on the issue. “I can tell you that at the first G20 meeting we have, I am going to make a proposal on this issue,” López Obrador said. “Yes, social media should not be used to incite violence and all that, but this cannot be used as a pretext to suspend freedom of expression.” “How can a company act as if it was all powerful, omnipotent, as a sort of Spanish Inquisition on what is expressed?” he asked. Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said Mexico is starting to build an international campaign around the issue.


“Given that Mexico, through our president, has spoken out, we immediately made contact with others who think the same,” Ebrard said, noting they had heard from officials in France, Germany, the European Union, Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. “The president’s orders are to make contact with all of them, share this concern and work on coming up with a joint proposal,” Ebrard said. “We will see what is proposed.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel is among those who have publicly criticized the action against Trump. Her spokesman said Monday the German leader found it “problematic” that corporate managers could deny someone access under rules not defined by law. Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, later called for new regulations that would govern the use of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in the European Union.

“Removing lawful content would directly violate the law, and this will have to be respected by the platforms that operate in Poland..”

Poland Plans To Make Censoring Of Social Media Accounts Illegal (G.)

Polish government officials have denounced the deactivation of Donald Trump’s social media accounts, and said a draft law being readied in Poland will make it illegal for tech companies to take similar actions there. “Algorithms or the owners of corporate giants should not decide which views are right and which are not,” wrote the prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, on Facebook earlier this week, without directly mentioning Trump. “There can be no consent to censorship.” Morawiecki indirectly compared social media companies taking decisions to remove accounts with Poland’s experience during the communist era. “Censorship of free speech, which is the domain of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes, is now returning in the form of a new, commercial mechanism to combat those who think differently,” he wrote.

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, which is ideologically aligned with Trump on many issues, has itself been accused of trying to limit freedom of speech in recent years. Some of its members have made a habit of posting anti-LGBT or anti-refugee rhetoric. However, government officials have long claimed that people with rightwing views in Poland and abroad have been the victims of biased decisions by international tech companies. Sebastian Kaleta, secretary of state at Poland’s Ministry of Justice, said Facebook’s decision to remove Trump’s account was hypocritical, politically motivated and “amounts to censorship”. He said the draft law prepared by the justice ministry would make it illegal for social media companies to remove posts that did not break Polish law.

“Removing lawful content would directly violate the law, and this will have to be respected by the platforms that operate in Poland,” Kaleta told Rzeczpospolita newspaper. In recent years, Facebook has moved to block content from far-right Polish organisations and politicians on numerous occasions. The MP Janusz Korwin-Mikke, aligned with the Konfederacja party, was in November shut out of his account, which had 780,000 followers, for what Facebook called repeated violations of community standards. Korwin-Mikke accused Facebook of being run by “fascists and Bolsheviks”.

Under the provisions of the Polish draft law, users would be able to file a court petition to force social media companies to restore removed content if they believed it did not violate Polish law. The court would rule within seven days and the process would be fully electronic. Morawiecki called on the EU to introduce similar regulations. Other European politicians, including Germany’s Angela Merkel, have also expressed unease at the ban on Trump by various social media outlets, and a new EU proposal, the Digital Services Act, envisions tougher regulations on tech companies, including tough fines for failure to block illegal content.

Google Refuses To Answer Questions About Removing Australian News Sites (G.)

Google has refused to answer questions on its secret trial of removing news sites from search results in Australia, with the treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, saying the company should focus on paying for news, not blocking it. Google blindsided news consumers and media outlets this week with a trial that removed Australian media outlets such as the ABC, Nine, the Guardian and others from its search results. Users were not informed of the change, or advised how to find news articles when searching, with some reporting they initially believed it was an issue only affecting them.


People affected by the trial can get around the block by searching in a private browser window, such as in incognito mode in Google Chrome. The move by Google came as a Senate committee is reviewing legislation that would force Google and Facebook to negotiate with Australian news media companies for a fair price for displaying local news content. Google has argued strongly against the code since it was first announced last year, by alerting users to the proposed changes in search and in Google Chrome.

Trump Impeached Amid Efforts to Silence Him (Lauria)

The Congressional Republicans who challenged the electoral college results last Wednesday are guilty of one transgression: wasting Congress’ time. There was no way the electoral college votes would be overturned. However those Republicans were completely within their rights to challenge the results and spur debate and a vote in both chambers. To suggest that that Constitutional right constituted incitement or support for the riot is extraordinary overreach. There have been Democratic calls for these Republicans to be unseated and even investigated for possible prosecution. During the impeachment debate on Wednesday, Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler said the rioters’ “accomplices in this House will be held to account.” Numerous corporate donors have said they will no longer contribute to these Republicans’ campaigns.

There is even wild speculation by some Democrats that some Republican members gave Capitol “reconnaissance” tours to the rioters the night before. The New York Times posted photos of all Republican members who challenged the electoral college votes as if they were on a wanted poster. Republican Congressman Jim Jordan in the impeachment debate pointed out that more Democrats in Congress objected to more states’ electoral college results in 2017’s certification than had Republicans last Wednesday. A Republican member responded that Hillary Clinton had conceded, unlike Trump, and that the objections were based on “Russian interference” in that election. He accused the Republicans, with a straight face, of engaging in “conspiracy theories” about a stolen 2020 election.

Such Democratic hypocrisy was underscored on 60 Minutes Sunday, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump “deranged, unhinged, and dangerous.” But is he any more “deranged, unhinged, and dangerous” than Democrats who joined Republicans to vote in 2003 to invade and occupy a nation that posed no threat to the United States? How would one describe Pelosi’s response in 2019 when asked why she opposed impeaching George W. Bush for that invasion, a crime of “aggression,” the worst war crime according to the Nuremberg Tribunal? Because of that invasion Bush was still a far worse and more dangerous president than even Trump.

Impeachment Is More Dangerous Than Trump (Tracey)

The most apt parallel for the second impeachment of Donald Trump may not be any other of the three previous presidential impeachments, including his own just over a year ago. It may instead be the PATRIOT Act, which was passed in the heated emotional aftermath of the September 11 attacks, with negligible debate afforded to the long-term implications of what Congress was enacting. Reason and deliberation had given way to a collective desire for security and revenge, and thus the most sweeping curtailment of civil liberties in the modern historical record was approved. Those who departed from the swiftly assembled consensus could expect to be denounced as sympathisers to terrorists.

Likewise, if you deign to raise concerns about the implications of this sudden impeachment sequel — or any of the other extraordinary actions taken in the past week, such as an ongoing corporate censorship purge of unprecedented proportions — you can expect to be accused of defending or supporting the “domestic terrorists” who carried out the mob attack on the Capitol. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, rationalised rushing through Wednesday’s impeachment resolution at spell-binding speed — by far the fastest impeachment process ever — on the grounds that Trump posed a “clear and present danger” to the country, and needed to be removed immediately. “Imminent threats” of various stripes also have a long history of being cited to justify sweeping emergency action, such as the invasion of Iraq. Often upon further inspection, the purported “threat” turns out to have been not so “imminent”, or in fact to have never existed at all.

But as rushed as the impeachment was, if the purported emergency conditions were truly so dire as Pelosi maintained, she could have theoretically summoned the House to convene the day after the mob attack and impeach Trump right away. Congress convened the very next day after the attack on Pearl Harbor to declare war on Japan, for example. Instead, Pelosi waited a full week, and gave everyone the weekend off in the interim. Trump, alleged to be in the process of orchestrating a violent “coup”, was allowed to remain in office unimpeded with access to the nuclear codes for seven days. Nonetheless, with a total of two hours of perfunctory debate — and no hearings, fact-finding or meditation on the relevant Constitutional Law considerations — Trump was impeached for the second time. As such, the text of the impeachment article will now be permanently embedded in the fabric of American governance.

Both sides say Jake Sullivan belongs to the other side.

Liberal Activist Arrested, Charged With Participating In Capitol Riot (JTN)

A progressive activist has been arrested and charged with participating in last week’s U.S. Capitol riot a week after he uploaded footage of the event to YouTube. Utah resident and anti-Trump activist John Sullivan told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, “specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down.” Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act as a journalist during the riots, Sullivan “knowingly and willfully joined a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.”


Foulger in the affidavit said that footage taken by Sullivan at the riot shows the activist accompanying and cheering on the rioting crowd by saying things such as “Let’s go. This shit is ours!” and “Let’s burn this shit down.” Sullivan has been arrested and charged pursuant to the incident, Salt Lake City station Fox 13 reported on Thursday evening. The station said the activist has been charged with “rioting and criminal mischief.”

Biden’s Cabinet Picks Are A Missed Opportunity For Change (USAT)

As the 2020 Democratic primaries were heating up last year, then-candidate Joe Biden assured his wealthy campaign donors in Manhattan that “nothing would fundamentally change” for their luxurious standard of living under his presidency. Based on the majority of his Cabinet picks, he wasn’t kidding. Biden will maintain a cozy relationship with corporate America by lubricating the hinges of the ever revolving door of politics. Take Antony Blinken, Biden’s choice for secretary of State, as an example. In 2017, Blinken transitioned out of the Obama administration and founded a consulting firm called WestExec Advisors. The majority of its staffers — 21 out of 38 — personally donated to Biden’s campaign. WestExec co-founder Michele Flournoy alone raised more than $100,000 for the former vice president.

Was Blinken chosen for the job because he’s best suited, or is Biden trading favors based on campaign fundraisers and donations? Sure, Blinken and Biden have worked together in the past, and that could have factored into his decision. But aside from the transparent “favor for a favor” deal-making taking place in plain sight, Blinken’s opaque work at WestExec Advisors could be rife with conflicts of interest. The firm’s website boasts about selling influence to the White House by stating that its name “is derived from ‘West Executive Avenue,’ the closed street that runs between the West Wing of the White House and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. It is, quite literally, the road to the Situation Room, and it is the road everyone associated with WestExec Advisors has crossed many times en route to meetings of the highest national security consequences.”

While it’s clear that this consulting firm’s services mostly revolve around helping corporate clients and defense contractors win favorable government treatment, little is known about its client list because its staffers aren’t considered lobbyists. They’re labeled strategic advisers, which means they don’t have to disclose whom they’re working for. As The Intercept noted, the Biden team is squandering an opportunity for reform by sticking to conventional nominees like Avril Haines for director of national intelligence. While serving in the CIA under the Obama administration, Haines was an architect of the disastrous drone program that killed hundreds of innocent civilians. Later, Haines worked as a consultant for WestExec Advisors and Palantir — a controversial data mining firm that has provided the Trump administration intel to perform mass deportations.

Janet Yellen, who has been tapped to serve as Treasury secretary, is another example. When Politico reported that Yellen made $7.2 million in the past two years for giving closed-door speeches to Wall Street firms, Biden supporters brushed it off as nothing more than a misogynistic attack. However, there should be an overwhelming consensus that Americans deserve to know about any lucrative ties politicians and government officials have to bankers and hedge funds.

Will the Senate Confirm Coup Plotter Victoria Nuland? (Benjamin)

Who is Victoria Nuland? Most Americans have never heard of her because the U.S. corporate media’s foreign policy coverage is a wasteland. Most Americans have no idea that President-elect Biden’s pick for Deputy Secretary of State for Political Affairs is stuck in the quicksand of 1950s U.S.-Russia Cold War politics and dreams of continued NATO expansion, an arms race on steroids and further encirclement of Russia. Nor do they know that from 2003-2005, during the hostile U.S. military occupation of Iraq, Nuland was a foreign policy advisor to Dick Cheney, the Darth Vader of the Bush administration. You can bet, however, that the people of Ukraine have heard of neocon Nuland. Many have even heard the leaked four-minute audio of her saying “Fuck the EU” during a 2014 phone call with the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt.

During the infamous call on which Nuland and Pyatt plotted to replace the elected Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych, Nuland expressed her not-so-diplomatic disgust with the European Union for grooming former heavyweight boxer and austerity champ Vitali Klitschko instead of U.S. puppet and NATO booklicker Artseniy Yatseniuk to replace Russia-friendly Yanukovych. The “Fuck the EU” call went viral, as an embarrassed State Department, never denying the call’s authenticity, blamed the Russians for tapping the phone, much as the NSA has tapped the phones of European allies. Despite outrage from German Chancellor Angela Markel, no one fired Nuland, but her potty mouth upstaged the more serious story: the U.S. plot to overthrow Ukraine’s elected government and America’s responsibility for a civil war that has killed at least 13,000 people and left Ukraine the poorest country in Europe.

In the process, Nuland, her husband Robert Kagan, the co-founder of The Project for a New American Century, and their neocon cronies succeeded in sending U.S.-Russian relations into a dangerous downward spiral from which they have yet to recover. Nuland accomplished this from a relatively junior position as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. How much more trouble could she stir up as the #3 official at Biden’s State Department? We’ll find out soon enough, if the Senate confirms her nomination.

Joe Biden should have learned from Obama’s mistakes that appointments like this matter. In his first term, Obama allowed his hawkish Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Republican Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and military and CIA leaders held over from the Bush administration to ensure that endless war trumped his message of hope and change. Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, ended up presiding over indefinite detentions without charges or trials at Guantanamo Bay; an escalation of drone strikes that killed innocent civilians; a deepening of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan; a self-reinforcing cycle of terrorism and counterterrorism; and disastrous new wars in Libya and Syria.

ECB’s Lagarde Calls For Regulating Bitcoin’s “Funny Business” (R.)

European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde called on Wednesday for global regulation of Bitcoin, saying the digital currency had been used for money laundering activities in some instances and that any loopholes needed to be closed. Bitcoin has come out of its niche in recent years and is now bought by ordinary people, investment funds and even large corporations. Some have even taken out loans to buy more of the cryptocurrency, whose value has increased almost tenfold since last March. But its largely anonymous nature has raised concerns that it could be used for money laundering and other illegal activities.


“(Bitcoin) is a highly speculative asset, which has conducted some funny business and some interesting and totally reprehensible money laundering activity,” Lagarde said in an interview at the Reuters Next conference. Lagarde did not provide specific examples of money laundering cases but said she understood there had been criminal investigations into illegal activity. She did not elaborate. The cryptocurrency sector is still mostly lightly overseen or unregulated, although global standards on areas such as anti-money laundering (AML) have emerged. She joined a number of regulators from across the world in calling for implementing global rules for cryptocurrencies.

Secret Service Barred From Using Ivanka Trump’s Bathrooms (G.)

The dying days of the Trump administration have been plagued by yet more scandal in the form of riots, Twitter bans and impeachment. Now the Washington Post has added another: water closet gate. In a multi-bylined article one of America’s top investigative news outlets has chronicled in leg-crossing detail the apparently extreme difficulty that the Secret Service detail assigned to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have had in finding a place to go to the bathroom. According to the Washington Post the president’s daughter and her top White House adviser spouse have apparently exiled the squad of men and women assigned to keep them from harm’s way from using the toilets in their sprawling Washington DC mansion.

“Instructed not to use any of the half-dozen bathrooms inside the couple’s house, the Secret Service detail assigned to President Trump’s daughter and son-in-law spent months searching for a reliable restroom to use on the job,” the paper reported, citing neighbors and law enforcement official. It quoted one law enforcement official as saying: “It’s the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom.” It added that Secret Service members in the couple’s detail who were desperate to relieve themselves had resorted to a porta-potty, as well as bathrooms at the homes of Barack Obama and Vice-President Mike Pence.

The solution to the problem was not a cheap one. Since September 2017, the paper reported, the federal government rented the stricken Secret Service members a basement studio with a bathroom for the purposes of them going to the loo. The cost to taxpayers? Some $3,000 a month. A White House spokesperson denied the couple restricted agents from their home. But the Post stuck by its investigative guns, saying: “That account is disputed by a law enforcement official familiar with the situation, who said the agents were kept out at the family’s request.” The Post’s story is unlikely to endear Washington citizens – or indeed many other Americans – to Ivanka Trump and her husband as they leave office after four high-profile years in Donald Trump’s administration.

    Asher yatzar

    Asher yatzar (Hebrew: בִּרְכַּת אֲשֶׁר יָצַר‎ “Who has formed man”) is a blessing in Judaism. It is recited after engaging in an act of excretion or urination,[1] but is also included in many Jewish prayer books as a part of daily prayer prior to birkot hashachar.[2]

    The purpose of this blessing is to thank God for good health.[1] It expresses thanks for having the ability to excrete, for without it existence would be impossible.[3] Though recited normally by observant Jews each time excretory functions are used, it is also recited during the Shacharit service due to its spiritual significance (to Jews, humans are made in God’s image, so it is an expression of awe toward God’s creations).[3]

    20,000 button men

    Most folks don’t even realize that after a governor activates his state’s NG, the President can assume command of them. In Mafia parlance, to paraphrase Sonny from “GodFather 1,” Trump will soon have 20,000 “button men on the streets” of swamp-infested DC.

    As demoralized as some of “youse guys” understandably are and, admittedly, as anxious as “The Editorial Board” of The Anti-New York Times is at this very late stage of the end-game — to date, there is nothing that has happened (or not yet happened) which would contradict or discredit “The Plan” revealed to us by Q Anon. From the 2017-2018 days of the earliest “crumbs” posted, Q has never wavered in forecasting that the at-the-time cryptic “11.3” (Election Day 2020) would be “the first marker” for the start of the dramatic finale; and that election fraud would be a key element of the end game; and that Antifa would be used to “play right into the plan;” and that the National Guard — under Trump’s command — would unleash “The Storm” with the support of regular military and under the protective cover of the Emergency Broadcast System.

    Trump has the NG under his command, the Stupid-19 “state of emergency” still in place, the EBS at his disposal, and 80 million pissed-off “sleepers” already on his side. Now consider this: Even if “The Donald” is not the selfless, dauntless, patriotic hero that we hope he is — when faced with the choice between “pushing the buttons” and crushing the evil enemies arrayed against him; or quietly putting his tail between his legs and leaving DC to forever be reviled as “the worst president ever” and condemning his own children and grandchildren to endure vicious personal and business reprisals — it would seem to this writer that Trump, if only out of pure self-interest and self-preservation, would crush these sons-of-bitches once and for all — generals permitting*.

    And what easier way (“clean and swift” as Q has said) to round up the vindictive vermin and treasonous trash in one fell swoop that at the inauguration itself? Or perhaps the night before, when certain out-of-town scum are in the fancy hotel rooms?

    Bob Dylan – It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding) – With Lyrics

    It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)
    Bob Dylan

    [Verse 1]
    Darkness at the break of noon
    Shadows even the silver spoon
    The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
    Eclipses both the sun and moon
    To understand you know too soon
    There is no sense in trying

    [Verse 2]
    Pointed threats they bluff with scorn
    Suicide remarks are torn
    From the fools gold mouthpiece the hollow horn
    Plays wasted words, proves to warn
    That he not busy being born
    Is busy dying

    [Verse 3]
    Temptation’s page flies out the door
    You follow, find yourself at war
    Watch waterfalls of pity roar
    You feel to moan, but unlike before
    You discover that you’d just be one more
    Person crying

    [Chorus]
    So don’t fear if you hear
    A foreign sound to your ear
    It’s alright, Ma, I’m only sighing

    [Verse 4]
    As some warn victory, some downfall
    Private reasons, great or small
    Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
    To make all that should be killed to crawl
    While others say don’t hate nothing at all
    Except hatred

    [Verse 5]
    Disillusioned words like bullets bark
    As human gods aim for their mark
    Make everything from toy guns that spark
    To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
    It’s easy to see without lookin’ too far
    That not much is really sacred

    [Verse 6]
    While preachers preach of evil fates
    Teachers teach that knowledge waits
    Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
    Goodness hides behind its gates
    But even the President of the United States
    Sometimes must have to stand naked

    [Chorus]
    And though the rules of the road have been lodged
    It’s only people’s games that you got to dodge
    And it’s alright, Ma, I can make it

    [Verse 7]
    Advertising signs that con
    You into thinking you’re the one
    That can do what’s never been done
    That can win what’s never been won
    Meantime, life outside goes on
    All around you

    [Verse 8]
    You lose yourself, you reappear
    You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
    Alone you stand with nobody near
    When a trembling distant voice, unclear
    Startles your sleeping ears to hear
    That somebody thinks they really found you

    [Verse 9]
    A question in your nerves is lit
    Yet you know there is no answer fit
    To satisfy, ensure you not to quit
    To keep it in your mind and not forget
    That it is not he, or she, or them, or it
    That you belong to

    [Chorus]
    But though the masters make the rules
    For the wise men and the fools
    I got nothing, Ma, to live up to

    [Verse 10]
    For them that must obey authority
    That they do not respect in any degree
    Who despise their jobs, their destiny
    Speak jealously of them that are free
    Do what they do just to be
    Nothing more than something they invest in

    [Verse 11]
    While some on principles baptized
    To strict party platform ties
    Social clubs in drag disguise
    Outsiders they can freely criticize
    Tell nothing except who to idolize
    And say “God bless him”

    [Verse 12]
    While one who sings with his tongue on fire
    Gargles in the rat race choir
    Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
    Cares not to come up any higher
    But rather get you down in the hole
    That he’s in

    [Chorus]
    But I mean no harm, nor put fault
    On anyone that lives in a vault
    But it’s alright, Ma, if I can’t please him

    [Verse 13]
    Old lady judges watch people in pairs
    Limited in sex, they dare
    To push fake morals, insult and stare
    While money doesn’t talk, it swears
    Obscenity, who really cares
    Propaganda, all is phony

    [Verse 14]
    While them that defend what they cannot see
    With a killer’s pride, security
    It blows the minds most bitterly
    For them that think death’s honesty
    Won’t fall upon ’em naturally
    Life sometimes must get lonely

    [Verse 15]
    My eyes collide head-on with stuffed
    Graveyards, false goals, I scuff
    At pettiness which plays so rough
    Walk upside down inside handcuffs
    Kick my legs to crash it off
    Say, okay, I’ve had enough
    What else can you show me?

    [Chorus]
    And if my thought-dreams could be seen
    They’d probably put my head in a guillotine
    But it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only

    “I believe Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses on January 6 and should be removed from office and barred from ever seeking public office again….I realize that I am treading on legal grounds, and that I am not a lawyer.

    “…we’re going to walk down to the Capitol and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.”
    Trump later followed that up by saying, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

    Some have argued that Trump knew full well he was riling his followers up and that he cannot claim he was unaware of what they might do. But it is difficult to ignore the fact that his speech contained no explicit calls for violence and two explicit exhortations for the crowd to engage in peaceful protest.”

    “It took Trump 30 minutes…[to say] “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement,”
    And what is five minutes later: “Trump posted a slightly more forceful tweet. “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful,” he wrote. “No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order — Respect the Law… “We have to have peace. So, go home,”

    Uh-huh. Says CNN / Time / WaPo / NYTimes themselves.

    Sadly, I’ve concluded that this election was more or less honest as modern elections. What convinced me?

    This:

    NBA get-out-the vote effort results in unprecedented voter registration

    “After just 22% of players voted in 2016, the league is up to 96% registration”

    How sad. I was happier thinking it was another ballot-stuffing. But I can now see how it is possible that, this being the Election of a Lifetime (sounds like a boxing match promo), people could come out in waves to, uh, replace one piece of shit with a slightly different piece of shit with a VP who never met a prison slave complex she didn’t want to expand. (The surge in laws allowing same-day voter registration, sort of a just-in-time political economy, explains how such a fad could translate into actual voting.)

    But then, part of the Tragedy of the Commons is that while we steadfastly fail to manage our resources for the long-term reasonable benefit of all dependent on those commons, we’ll come together and work in unison to FIGHT any dirty buggers who want a piece of those commons or, heaven forbid, dare suggest to us a better way of managing them

    We will fight to oppose far more readily than work to compose; and that is human history in its essence.

    It’s been fun, y’all, but there’s too much fighting here (just like everywhere else), too much rush to blame rather than move to remedy. I enjoy venting my despair as much as the next hollowed out old hag, but not contentiously; rather, in healing commiseration without recourse to agreeing on Whom we should deploy our Daily Hate.

    Take care and try not to confuse your love with what you do to survive.

    Watch out. I’ve got an old Boomer nostalgia machine and I’m not afraid to use it:

    In one year, with a global population of 8 billion, where many countries hardly have a healthcare system to speak of, we just passed 2 million people dying of covid world wide. Somehow, the beacon of freedom with the “best” healthcare system in the world, we have one of the largest totals of people who have passed from covid. India, China, both with populations of a billion, have lower covid deaths then the united states. How does that happen? Only three possible answers: either then aren’t putting out true statistics, they have a magic cure, or we aren’t putting out correct numbers and ignoring magic cures………….

    Posted on Xymphora previously:
    “So, it comes down to the military and specifically, the National Guard. The National Guard attracts a “different breed” than active duty or reserve military.
    There’s no point rehashing the well-documented problem with white supremacist members among the Guard. As recently as the Summer of Disaffection 2020, Ohio ANG soldiers were pulled from their mission to the Antifa-BLM riots due to their alleged white supremacist sympathies.

    However and as evidenced by recent photos of National Guardsmen sleeping on Capitol building floors, many soldiers sympathetic to President Trump and duty-bound to the Chain of Command have now encircled the raging Democrat mob and their few Republican enablers. Not just encircled but infiltrated without rioting or firing a shot. None of these men take orders from Nancy Pelosi….And armed to the teeth; and mainly white; and unsympathetic to people who show contempt for fathers, male authority figures.”

    I personally predict the Guard will remain obedient

    Boyle was on this since day one. Unfortunately he is a well respected person with real accomplishments who was interviewed by Alex Jones.

    Francis Boyle

    Francis Boyle drafted the US domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the US Congress
    and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.

    Dr. Francis Boyle joins The Alex Jones Show to expose how forcing the untested lethal mRNA COVID-19 vaccine on the public violates the Nuremburg Trials ruling against Nazi medical experimentation cruelty. Mandating such a vaccine is a “war crime”.

    “…mRNA vaccines intervene directly in the genetic material of the patient and therefore alter the individual genetic material, which represents the genetic manipulation, something that was already forbidden and considered criminal. This intervention can be compared to genetically manipulated food, which is also highly controversial”. ~ Robert F. Kennedy, Children’s Health Defense

    The mRNA COVID-19 vaccine about to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public is a bioweapon intended to damage human DNA permanently. This is another holocaust in the making. Do not be fooled by the marketing hype and the FDA safety studies (which never happened).

    I think one of the reasons twitter, facebook, google, amazon, etc. banned President Trump, Parler, Walkaway, and many other voices like Ron Paul, was to try and fracture these voices into smaller groups so they can not coordinate together. The old divide and conquer routine.

    This benefits both the Republicans and Democrats (I.e. the uniparty) so they can purge these elements from their party and thus remove threats to their monoply control of the government. This was likely Mitch’s idea so he can purge Trump supporters from the Republican party.

    It is nice to see unforseen consequences arriving for twiitter and facebook. First the market and now other world leaders. Hopefully a lump of coal especially for Mitch and the republican party! Krama!

    I think the virus hits various groups differently. If you use the Bio-weapon idea proposed by Boyle those spikes would attach to individuals with different biological characteristics. NOT simply co-morbidity.
    Big Pharma has made virtually everyone co morbid.

    FDA hidden database

    “The FDA’s Hidden Database Protects Companies, Reduces Medical Device Recalls
    In Medical Device Recall, UncategorizedPosted March 25, 2019

    In a bombshell report, Kaiser Health News is shining a light on a little-known practice of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that puts Americans at risk. The FDA’s “alternative summary” program is a private reporting procedure that allows manufacturers to potentially avoid medical device recalls. That is because the reports of malfunctioning medical devices made through this procedure are hidden from the public.

    Now, a lack of transparency is the just the tip of the iceberg as public outrage emerges over the FDA’s hidden database of reports of faulty medical devices. As a publicly-funded agency whose stated mission is to protect American consumers, it is beyond shocking that the FDA would provide a haven for dangerous medical devices that are hurting hundreds of thousands of patients every year.
    Risk to American Lives

    In 2018 alone, almost 200,000 medical device injuries were reported by unnamed manufacturers about an unknown number of medical devices. The evidence seems to suggest that far fewer medical device recalls take place than are really necessary because the reports of dangers to consumers can be hidden by the FDA’s alternative summary program.

    The worst implication of this withheld information is the fact that the medical community also is kept in the dark about the true risks associated with medical devices. Currently, there is an estimated, “about 100”, medical devices known to the FDA to malfunction and injure patients.

    This means that medical professionals are not in a position to inform patients of the true risks of treatment options, including surgeries, because doctors themselves don’t even have access to all the information. It also makes it nearly impossible for doctors and surgeons to assess the tools they use for safety and appropriateness.”

    Earlier I linked to the Reproducibility crisis and retraction watch.

    Four new factor added to the idea nearly ALL symptoms are now Covid when previously they were not. Flu doesn’t kill Pnuemonia does. Pnuemonia doesn’t kill Covid does.
    Morbidity doesn’t kill BigPharma created the illusion of Morbidity.
    BigPharma once again solves the problem.
    Today I heard an ad stating everyone should have ALL vaccines.
    Big fear at work in a dumb populace.

    Max Headroom: Now, I’m no librarian, in fact, I don’t know what star sign I am. But, as a famous person once said, “You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” And as I – another more famous person – once said, “If you don’t teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like.”

    gangs in the military

    According to an FBI report, Gang Activity in the U.S. Armed Forces Increasing, dated January 12, 2007, members of nearly every major street gang have been identified on both domestic and international military installations. Members of nearly every major street gang, including the Bloods, Crips, Black Disciples, Gangster Disciples, Hells Angels, Latin Kings, The 18th Street Gang, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), Mexican Mafia, Nortenos, Surenos, Vice Lords, and various white supremacist groups, have been documented on military installations.

    Although most prevalent in the Army, the Army Reserves, and the National Guard, gang activity is pervasive throughout all branches of the military and across most ranks but is most common among the junior enlisted ranks, according to the report. The extent of gang presence in the armed services is often difficult to determine since many enlisted gang members conceal their gang affiliation and military authorities may not recognize gang affiliation or may be inclined not to report such incidences.

    I can’t find it now but something like 30k military members have joined to receive a green card.

    Every party purges there own eventually. The Dems already denied the Squad important positions, enough so that AOC labelled Pelosi “MAMMA BEAR”.
    Trump was never a “Republican”. But many republicans became Trumpeteers after he was successful.

    “Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find it to be an ‘inconvenience.’ We have opted instead for an authoritarian system disguised as a Democracy. We pay through the nose for an enormous joke-of-a-government, let it push us around, and then wonder how all those assholes got in there.” ~ Frank Zappa

    Raul’s heading: Special Russiagate Counsel Required re – Trump releasing classified documents.

    Raul … you don’t ever want a special prosecutor appointed, ever!

    In American politics, the concept of establishing a special counsel/prosecutor is a dirty political trick congress plays on the American people, over and over again!

    You see when congress says, standing in front of a TV camera, that it is going to appoint a special prosecutor and get to the bottom of this matter, it sounds like congress is really serious!

    Nothing could be further from the truth! Congress has no intentions of prosecuting anybody! Oh sure, some political theatre browny points will be scored, along the way, but nobody will be legally prosecuted!

    Why?

    Because the whole legal set up of appointing a special prosecutor is so that the special prosecutor must report everything he/she finds, every step of the way, directly to congress!

    This legal trick is done on purpose so that congress can undermine the special prosecutor’s case, every step of the way, so any criminal evidence can no longer be use in a regular court of law!

    No congressal critter has ever been charged by a special prosecutor! None ever will be!

    So the next time you hear a congressional critter, like miss lindsey graham, stand in front of a TV camera, promising to appoint a special prosecutor, just remember he is trying to pull the wool over your eyes!

    He is not trying to get to the bottom of things, he is trying to bury it, while trying to score some political browny points!

    If you want someone to be prosecuted, you want a regular DofJ prosecutor who doesn’t report to congress!

    So the next time you hear the magic words “special prosecutor” just remember what is really going on!

    ha ha ha, 51 Billion in “losses” (capit.) for Social Media Twitter, and FB…This should show ppl who has the upper hand, banning Trump is so bad for their biz model one or another may not recover. Trump with more than 80 million followers on Twitter for ex — *sexy girls* I mention these as an example of ‘general staple’ — and other I won’t mention are their bread and butter.

    These ‘independent’ social Medias are left to trawl, collect / sell info, and manage and manipulate as they wish, while being on a tight leash held by their masters, the PTB, who control them, no question. Probably both parties prefer relations to be be ‘fuzzy’ and not laid down by clear laws, etc. (See all the previous dicey Congressional hearings about ‘media’ and ‘free speech’ etc. where everyone is speaking with forked tongue.)

    Wikipedia has removed Trump from its list of top Twitter followers list. Obama is the only Pol in the top 50 list, besides … Narendra Modi! (no. 12.) The only non show-sports-etc. ppl are Bill Gates and Elon Musk (this is correct, they are always way way up there.)

    Yes, the doubts many medical people have expressed over the two vaccines is slowly over time, bit by bit, being revealed.

    The vaccine risk/reward ratio is not looking so good. It was always a “too good to be true” story.

    Knowledgeable people who know of the drug/vaccine industry were aware of it’s corruption and thus had good reason to be wary.
