Trump Is History and So Is the USA

4 days ago

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliana, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.
Where is the Justice Department’s report on the felonies committed by the

Is America in Her Final Days? Will America Be Here Next Year, Next Decade?

Will the American People Rise Against Adam Shit, the Bitch Pelosi, and the Nadler Turd and Save their Country from Ruin, or will the American People Submit to The Rule By Lies?  What Confidence Can We Have in the American People?
Many people regard Matt Tabbi as a leftist as he writes for the sometimes foolish Rolling Stone magazine. I regard Tabbi as a vicious truth-teller, who, left-wing or not, has integrity and intelligence far above the Identity Politics American left who are not even worth wiping your ass with. 
Tabbi’s truthful account below tells you that the Democrats are incapable of speaking any truth, and so is the whore American media that services the Democrats and the Deep State.  The Democrats are serial liars.

Will the Russians Ever Learn?

8 days ago

Insult after insult after insult, and the pathetic Russian Foreign Ministry still asks, “do the American authorities have no wish to normalize the dialogue?”  
Of course they don’t.  How much evidence does the Russian Foreign Ministry need?  The Americans arrest the son of a Russian lawmaker abroad far outside any legal US jurisdiction—they kidnapped him—and brought him to Washington for a Kangaroo Court trial.  The Americans  arrested a Russian woman in the US, Maria Butina, falsely accused her of spying and sentened her to prison.  It goes on and on.  Now the Americans have detained for questioning Inga Yumasheva, a member of the Russian Parliament, who was invited to the US to participat in the Fort Ross Dialogue forum, an

A Witness to the Collapse

9 days ago

A terrible fear has come over me.  Observing its rate of collapse, I am likely to outlive Western Civilization, or what little remains of it.
British Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn thinks he can get elected prime minister by promising to open the UK’s border to all comers and to house them by seizing houses and office blocks.  This, of course, means a Camp of the Saints moment for Great Britain.  So many Brits are so far gone that Corbyn thinks this is a winning platform.
The current French president and German chancellor, as well as the European Union bosses, hold the same view.  There is to be no Europe. Only Hungary, Italy, and Poland dissent and insist on remaining Hungarian, Polish, and Italian.
Alas, the Democratic Party in the

The Conspiracy Against Trump Is Now Out In The Open

12 days ago

I am beginning to wonder if fluoridation hasn’t dropped the US IQ by much more than 5 points.
The reports, such as this one — which provide clear evidence that the alleged whistleblower spent a month arranging his complaint with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, media, and other Democrats, thus revealing that it is nothing but another orchestrated hoax to use against President Trump, miss the main point.
The main point is that the “whistleblower” complaint is false.  The falsity of the complaint is proven by the released unredacted transcript and by the statements of Ukrainian President Zelensky.  
What the “whistleblower” complaint actually reveals is

Swedish Women Experience Mass Rape by Immigrant Invaders

13 days ago

The Chairman of Sweden’s automobile production Company, Volvo, says that immigrant crime imported into Sweden by the Swedish government is so high that Volvo might have to move out of Sweden in order to conduct its business.
His factual acknowledgement of the crime that the treasonous Swedish government, a collection of some of the most evil and stupid people on earth, has committed against Sweden could lead to the indictment of the Swedish Chairman of Volvo as a “racist.”
This is not a far-fetched supposition.  My column, which is read internationally, brings me emails from Swedish women who say that if they report their rape by dark-skinned “immigrants” unleashed on the Swedish population by a treasonous government, they risk

Where Are the Indictments

14 days ago

UPDATE 10-1-19 
On NPR radio today 12:20 east coast time, one of the female NPR presstitutes set the stage for Hillary Clinton to repeat Schiff’s lies about the Trump-Zelensky telephone conversation and to resurrect the false Russiagate charges and describe Trump as an illegitimate president. Corrupt NPR also pitched a softball that let Hillary explain away attempted investigation of her emails as Trump’s obsession to prove that he won rather than stole the presidential election.  
NPR has made it as clear as it can be made that NPR is part of the ongoing attempted coup against President Trump.

In the 1970s Irving Kristol declared Republicans to be the “stupid party.”  How correct he has proven to be.  Russiagate and now this

Feminism Has Ruined Women and Damaged Men

15 days ago

My recent article, “No Motherhood, No People” resulted in some perceptive comments.  Here is one slightly edited comment:
“It’s sadly ironic that “feminism” has such disdain for femininity.  Our society now heaps the most praise on women when they exhibit traditionally male traits such as strength, independence and excellence in STEM occupations.  The woman who wants to marry and devote herself to being a good wife and mother, making home a safe and happy place to be, is ignored or disdained by the media.   
“It’s okay for a woman to be gorgeous and have lots of sex appeal as it’s another form of power, but to devote herself to her family and sacrifice for her children, is now considered embarrassingly old-fashioned.  It is

No Motherhood, No People

16 days ago

It is paradoxical that feminism together with other ideological movements has destroyed the natural feminism of women and turned them into sexual items. The 19-year old who intends to get her tubes tied is turning herself into a pure sexual commodity. That women are transitioning themselves into sex dolls is a paradoxical result after decades of feminist propaganda that reduced the sexual relationship between men and women from a loving relationship to “men’s use of women’s bodies.” The feminists have now achieved what they decried.
Feminism has not liberated women.  It has liberated women from woman’s role.  The kind of stable committed relationships that men and women formerly had are difficult to find today except in the

Dems Reveal the Real Purpose of the Impeachment Investigation

18 days ago

The Democrats know that there is no impeachable offense.  What they intend to do is to use the investigation to look into every aspect of Trump’s life and try to make dirt out of things unrelated to his talk with the Ukrainian president.  This “impeachment investigation” is a political act to help their candidate win the next presidential election.  
Democrats themselves describe it in this way. For example, here is how Rob Kall, the director of one of the progressive Democrat websites, described the purpose of the investigation:
“The idea should be to keep the impeachment going as long as possible, with new testimonies and new releases of disclosures of alleged corruption and treason on a regular basis.
“Looking at impeachment

Adam Schiff Epitomizes the Total Collapse of Democratic Party Integrity

19 days ago

US Rep. Adam Schiff, Democrat from California and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, had no qualms about lying through his teeth in his opening statement prior to the testimony of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.  Everyone present had read the transcript of the telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky, and everyone knew that what Schiff, who said he was reading from the transcript of the telephone call, was saying was not in the transcript.  How can it be that the chairman of a House committee in a room full of newspersons and TV cameras has no qualms about intentionally misrepresenting the written record in order to make it conform to the lies the

We Are Jeopardized by the Creation of False Realities

20 days ago

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” —George Orwell
In America today it is difficult to tell the truth without being accused of a variety of sins and marginalized. When speaking truth is no longer effective, there is no purpose in speaking it. This is the reason truth-tellers are being marginalized.  It is a way of shutting down truth, which, of course, makes it easy for the ruling oligarchs to control explanations in order to achieve their agendas.
Identity Politics is hate-based. It is no different from Marxist class war. It would be naive to expect any different outcome than Lenin’s class war that exterminated many. The lesson of history is that whoever

The Coverup of President John F. Kennedy’s Assassination Is Wearing Thin

21 days ago

Here is a several years old documentary of 35 minutes summarizing the powerful evidence that the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is a cover-up. 
All available evidence points to the CIA and the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, with the cooperation of the Secret Service, as the murderers of President Kennedy.  Fifty-six years after the murder of President Kennedy, the US government still refuses to release the documents that would prove what really happened.  Clearly, the truth is being hidden.
As James Jesus Angleton, the head of CIA Counterintelligence told me, when the CIA does a black ops operation, it has a cover story ready that is immediately fed into the media.  In this way the CIA

America: A Land Without Truth

22 days ago

It has been 17 days since a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 by civil engineers was made available to the media.  The study concluded that fire was not the cause of the collapse of the 47-story building.  The study also concluded that “the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”  
In other words, the study concludes that the building was intentionally destroyed by controlled demolition.  Controlled demolition means that there was a plan to destroy the building and that access to the building inhabited by a number of US security agencies was permitted in order to wire the building for demolition.  This finding is consistent

US Drone Strike Kills 30 Pine Nut Farm Workers in Afghanistan

23 days ago

The warriors who conducted this drone strike from a safe distance in the U.S. without any danger to themselves other than their moral conscience if they have one are henceforth “heroes.”  “Thank you for your service.”
The majority of the people killed by the US military in Washington’s 21st century wars for Israel and the military/security complex’s profits have been women, children, village elders, weddings, funerals, children’s soccer games, and farm workers.   But this is merely the collateral damage of bringing democracy and the American way to the oppressed.
Everytime I go through the Atlanta airport I am subjected to endless recordings thanking our service persons for their service, and informing the rest of us that

Can Nuclear War Be Avoided?

27 days ago

This is a repost from March 19, 2018, prompted by Washington’s insistence that Iran is responsible for the attack on the Saudi oil facility.  Even if it were true, what business is it of Washington?  Iran did not attack the US.  Why is it a matter of war for Americans if Iran were to attack Saudi Arabia.  Why this announcement: ” The Trump administration is weighing a range of options for a retaliatory action against Iran, including a cyberattack or physical strike on Iranian oil facilities or Revolutionary Guard assets, U.S. officials and others briefed on the deliberations told NBC News.”
Two factors are driving the world to nuclear war. One is the constant stream of insults, false accusations and broken agreements that the

Armageddon on the Horizon?

September 16, 2019

Trump supporters should let Trump hear from them as he is about to commit the United States to a war of Israel’s choosing.  A mutual defense treaty between the US and Israel would give Israel the ability to commit the US to a war in Israel’s behalf.  
Remember history.  It was British prime minister Chamberlain’s guarantee to Poland that started World War II.  The idiot British lost control over their own policy and gave it to a crazed and irresponsible Polish military dictatorship.  
The attack on the Saudi oil fields that Trump and Israel are blaming on Iran is almost certainly an  attack by Israel.  The attack is being used to start a war with Iran.
Putin needs to speak up now before the war starts, because it is impossible

The 9/11 Deception

September 14, 2019

The 18th anniversary of 9/11 is over, but 9/11 isn’t.  September 11, 2001, is the defining event of America’s 21st century.  The neoconservatives used their false flag event to destroy the Bill of Rights and turn the American people over to a police state, and they used the New Pearl Harbor that they orchestrated to launch their wars of aggression in the Middle East for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest.  The new American police state will become more oppressive as time goes by, and now that Israel has the bit in its teeth the United States will likely be forced into a war that will result in nuclear Armageddon.  
The evil inherent in Washington’s attacks on Islamic countries has resulted in the

Some of the Many Things Most Americans Have Never Heard About 9/11

September 12, 2019

The “Dancing Israelis” who turned out to be Israeli Mossad agents caught filming and celebrating the destruction of the twin towers. Arrested by police and released without investigation, they were not mentioned in the 911 Commission Report.  Later on Israeli TV they said they were sent to New York to film the destruction of the twin towers.  Allegedly, there was no advance warning of the event, but obviously the Israelis knew.  
The alleged fundamentalist orthodox fanatical Muslims who were prepared to die to be martyrs, but who drank, drugged, and lived with strippers and prostitutes in Florida. They were the patsies paraded through flight schools and left a highly visible public record.  They all flunked out and could not even

When Americans Fell for the 9/11 Deception

September 11, 2019

Today is the 18 anniversary of 9/11, an event that has turned a once free America into a domestic police state and an international warmonger during the 21st century.  America’s reputation has been shattered along with the Constitution, international law, and seven nations in whole or part.  The massive crimes against the Bill of Rights and the population of seven nations are the direct consequence of 9/11.
Global Research has assembled some articles that indicate that not only Americans but the people of the world have been massively deceived about that event. 
Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.  I had an open mind for two reasons.

9/11 After 18 Years

September 10, 2019

I would appreciate hearing from readers whether they have come across a report in the print, TV, or NPR media of the highly professional four-year investigation of WTC Building 7’s demise.  The international team of civil engineers concluded that the official story of Building 7’s destruction is entirely false.  I reported their findings here.
I suspect that the expert report is already in the Memory Hole.  Popular Mechanics, Wikipedia and CNN cannot label a distinguished team of experts “conspiracy theorists.”  Therefore the presstitutes and assorted cover-up artists for the 9/11 false flag attack on the United States will simply act as if no such report exists. The vast majority of people in the world will never hear about the

The Official Story of the Collapse of WTC Building 7

September 9, 2019

A research team at the University of Alaska’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, led by Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao, Department of Civil Engineering, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, released yesterday for public comment their findings from a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11, 2001.  This is the first scientific investigation of the collapse of the building.   Here is the conclusion:
“The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the

The Revolution in Military Affairs

September 7, 2019

Clarity Press has just published a new book by Andrei Martyanov, The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs.
Martyanov’s book is, in a way, two books.  One is about the revolution in military affairs that has left the United States behind.  The other is about the self-medicating and propagandistic version of reality that Americans mistake for reality.  Martyanov convinced me that the Pentagon’s war planners need to upgrade their understanding of war and how to conduct one, but I found more interesting the fake reality supported by controlled explanations from which Americans seem unable to escape that is described in the other part of his book.  It turns out that it is not only the insouciant general population but also the ruling

I Feel Sorry For President Trump

September 5, 2019

Yes, I know.  I am lining up on the wrong side.  You are supposed to hate him. The presstitutes hate Trump.  So does the Democratic Party, part of the Republican Party, the military/security complex, the entirety of the liberal/progressive/left, the universities, feminists, and Washington’s vassal states.  No one likes him but the “racist, white supremacist Trump deplorables.”
Nevertheless, I feel sorry for him.  I started feeling sorry for him when he announced he would run for President of the United States.  You see, I had inside information. I had held a presidential appointment from a President of the United States.  I ended up fighting battles for him against entrenched interests who opposed his policies to end stagflation

How Long Before Danielle Ryan Is Gone?

August 31, 2019

Danielle Ryan is an Irish journalist. A real one, not a presstitute. She says things that journalists nowhere in the Western world are any longer permitted to say. For example, Western journalism no longer is connected to factual reporting. It is simply used to get whoever the oligarchs want got.
Danielle notes that it is impossible to be a journalist today if you have any respect for facts, truth, and objectivity. Those are what get you fired. She is very gentle about it:
“No one could reasonably expect journalism to be an entirely mistake-free profession, but the rate at which demonstrably false stories percolate through the media ecosystem is alarming — and the more mistakes, it seems, the higher the reward. Maddow has been

Ignatiev Remarks: A Correction?

August 30, 2019

Stacey Patton, an assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Morgan State University writes in chroniclevitae.com that Ignatiev’s widely reported remarks that white males do not deserve to live is a satire of his views. Let’s assume that Patton is correct and the previous reports are incorrect.
What is the difference between the remarks Stacey Patton says Ignatiev did not make and these remarks that she reports Ignatiev did make?
As the professor admits, he is no stranger to controversy: He has argued that his journal Race Traitor intends to “keep bashing the dead white males (along with live ones and white women) until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed.”

The Rise in American Narcissism

August 29, 2019

For many years I have observed and commented from time to time on the rise in American narcissism and decline in cognitive ability. American narcissism has an emotional coloration. Utterly ignorant Americans have no problem believing that they know more than experts they belittle, demonstrating all the while that they have no understanding of what the expert has written.
Emotional responses are gradually crowding out fact and evidence based reason. Truth is losing its connection to objectivity and is becoming agenda based. If it serves the agenda, and agendas are increasingly emotion based, it is truth. Many can no longer comprehend the content of what they read. Words become like a bullfighter’s red cape. They set off emotions,

The Irresponsibility of Some Small Nations

August 24, 2019

After falsely accusing Russia of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), Washington unilaterally repudiated the treaty. Thus did the US military/security complex rid itself of the landmark agreement achieved by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that defused the Cold War.
The INF Treaty was perhaps the most important of all of the arms control agreements achieved by American 20th century presidents and now abandoned in the 21st century by US neoconservative governments. The treaty removed the threat of Russian missiles against Europe and the threat of European-based US missiles to Russia. The importance of the treaty is due to its reduction of the chance of accidental nuclear war. Warning systems have a

Is the NY Times Preparing Us for a Camp of the Saints?

August 23, 2019

Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, told the Times’ employees on August 12 that the Times is refocusing from Russiagate to Trump-the-racist. Moreover, Baquet said, the Times is launching the 1619 Project that will “reframe” or reinvent American history. The purpose is to reduce the explanation of the United States to racism and slavery.
What, I wonder, is Baquet going to do when he has to confront the already “reframed” history of the “Civil War,” in which the United States at great expense and hardship and many deaths went to war to free black slaves in the South? How can Baquet reconcile racist white America with the reframed history of the War Against Southern slavery?
Baquet has an agenda, which is to

The Epstein Mystery

August 13, 2019

I appreiate my readers’ confidence in me.  However, I cannot clear up the Epstein matter for you.  Perhaps I can help you to think about it in a careful way.
First of all, many jail “suicides” are murders.  In 1995 Jesse Trentadue’s brother, Kenneth,  was mistakenly identified as the possible “missing man” who was thought to be involved in the Oklahoma City bombing and beaten to death in a federal prison by federal agents.  The prison claimed Kenneth hung himself in his cell.  The state coroner refused to confirm the suicide verdict and only much later after much pressure ceased his resistance to the coverup.  The prison wanted to cremate the body rather than return the body to family for burial.  But Jesse, a Salt Lake City
