The Deep State Exposed: Investigation Uncovers Foggy Bottom Anti-Trump Leak Factory


by Kristina Wong, Breitbart:

It was mid-May, about six weeks after Trump appointee Mari Stull began her new job as senior adviser at the State Department’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs.

As senior adviser at the bureau, Stull was in charge of making sure President Trump’s agenda was represented at the many international organizations the U.S. participates in and mostly funds, such as the United Nations and its various agencies.

Stull and her boss, Amb. Kevin Moley, had just left for a trip to Geneva for the World Health Assembly. Back at the State Department, Erin Barclay, a senior career diplomat at the IO Bureau, invited more than ten civil servants within the bureau to a lunch meeting.

Study Finds Doctors Had No Reason For Prescribing One-Third Of Opioid Prescription

by Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:The opioid crisis is at an all-time high in the United States. New research shows that some doctors are part of the problem as they are prescribing opioids for no reason.
  • Reflect On:Should we be investing more research into non-addictive methods of pain control? Should there be a background check before opioid painkillers are prescribed? Is our health care system actually promoting good health? Why are these drugs legal?

The misuse and addiction to opiates has become an epidemic in the United States. In fact, every single day over 115 people die from overdosing on opioids. Addiction to opioids, which includes heroin, prescription pain medication and synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, is an extremely serious national crisis that affects public health and social and economic welfare.

Wikileaks: Israel Using AI to Monitor ‘All Posts’ On Facebook & Twitter for ‘Antisemitism’ to Report to Law Enforcement


by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Wikileaks shared an Orwellian video over the weekend featuring Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett discussing how the Israeli government is monitoring “all posts” on Facebook and Twitter for “antisemitism” to report to “law enforcement” and “intelligence” agencies in “certain” European countries.

More fake hurricane-weather news

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

This morning, FOTM‘s DCG posted a video showing how the Weather Channel broadcasts fake news about Hurricane Florence by exaggerating how strong the wind is.

A reporter pretended to be unsteady on his feet, buffeted by the supposed strong wind. Alas, the video camera showed that right behind the reporter were two people casually strolling by.

It’s the Anniversary of the Book that Changed the World — 3 Ways 1984 has Become Reality

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:

Assessing current conditions in the United States, it would be next to impossible not to grasp innumerable parallels to George Orwell’s dystopic portent, 1984. Though other fictional dystopias could similarly elicit comparisons to the dark turn taken by American empire, aspects of 1984’s creepy authoritarian nightmare ring all-too-true.

And Big Brother-like surveillance — though undoubtedly relevant — imparts only the most obvious, and therefore least pertinent, connection on the list.

Bone Chilling Footage Shows the Horrific Tyranny Google is Now Secretly Fostering in China

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Based on the history of how China treats its dissidents, Google could soon be complicit in the state-sponsored torture and murder of people for their political and religous views.

Last week, it was reported that a senior scientist at Google, Jack Poulson did the right thing and resigned from his high-paying job over his employer’s decision to support censorship in China. “I am forced to resign in order to avoid contributing to, or profiting from, the erosion of protection for dissidents,” he said.

The senior scientist blew the whistle last month after the Intercept revealed through leaked documents that the internet behemoth planned to launch a censored version of its search engine in Chine that will blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.

Canadians Who Smoke Weed Legally Could Face Lifetime Ban From Entering the US


from The Mind Unleashed:

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has announced that they will continue their fight in the losing battle of cannabis prohibition by banning Canadian cannabis users and workers from entering the United States.

Customs official Todd Owen told Politico that they will interrogate Canadian citizens that they suspect of using cannabis, and anyone who says yes, or lies, will be banned from the US for life. Additionally, anyone working in the legal cannabis industry will be labeled as a drug trafficker by the agency, even if they aren’t in possession of cannabis when they cross the border.

Suspending the Constitution: In America Today, the Government Does Whatever It Wants

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”—Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document.

The reality we must come to terms with, however, is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

Kavanaugh and Probabilities


by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Ah, so now we have it

Ford, a 51-year-old registered Democrat who has published in academic journals and has trained students in clinical psychology, described the alleged incident in The Washington Post on Sunday, saying it occurred during a summer day in the 1980s at a Maryland house where teens had gathered. Ford claimed she headed upstairs to a bathroom when she was suddenly pushed onto a bed, as rock-and-roll music blared.

However, Ford told The Post she did not recall exactly who owned the house, how she came to be at the house, or how the gathering was arranged. She remembered only that the house was in Montgomery County, near a country club, and that parents were not present.

So she doesn’t know who’s house it was, why she was there, what the “gathering” was about (gee, I wonder.)
