Radio legend Michael Savage joined InfoWars host Alex Jones Thursday and called out progressive billionaire George Soros, demanding that the “crazy son of a b*tch” be arrested for meddling in foreign elections.
SAVAGE: “Soros is one crazy son of a b*tch.” I don’t know how in the world he gets away with meddling in foreign elections without having been rounded up by INTERPOL. Soros has meddled in more foreign elections than you can count on one hand. We know it for a fact! And yet we hear not one word, and this is the bewildering part about it, why has Trump not gone after Soros’ meddling in foreign elections? This is a peculiarity of the Trump-Soros thing and I don’t know why. Let me put it that way, Alex. It’s a topic for you to look into. But, Soros is a man who openly meddles in foreign elections. Why is he not looked into?
Recently, the Guardian UK reported Soros donated £400,000 to an anti-Brexit campaign:
The investor has come under sustained attack since details of his donations to Best for Britain were revealed last week.
Soros, who has given much of his personal fortune to his human rights organisation, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), said he had received “toxic personal criticism”. Some have said the language echoes the antisemitic attacks against him made by some governments, such as Hungary and Russia.
In an opinion piece published by the Daily Mail UK two weeks ago, Soros warned against Brexit, stating “This process will change Britain and Europe from friends into foes, at least during the transitional period.

Israel’s mounting interest in Syria’s War, and in particular in picking fights with the Assad government, Iran, and any other Shi’ite factions in the country, have included reports by analysts of a growing amount of Israeli arms and ammunition flowing across the border for rebels.
Syria puts Israeli arms seized from rebels on display
Officially, Israel isn’t a big fan on Sunni Islamist organizations. Such groups are the bulk of the rebellion on the Golan frontier, and that’s made them groups Israel has a very serious interest in seeing survive and thrive on the border.
Analysts say Israel is directly arming at least seven groups in the area. To be clear, no specific factions are named in any of these reports, but past reports have put Israel on the side of some very unfashionable groups, like al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, which have been active in the area for some time.
Israeli officials have been very public in the past saying they prefer ISIS over the Alawite government in Syria. Expressing such a preference and arming terrorists are two different things, and Israel’s effort to step up arming for Islamist groups risks regional blowback.

Former employee says global body greatly understates the incidence of criminal violations
A former high-level United Nations official publicly called on the global organization to be more transparent about sexual abuse by its aid workers, which he says has claimed as many as 60,000 victims over the past decade.
Andrew MacLeod, Chief of Operations at the UN’s Emergency Coordination Center in Pakistan from 2005-2008, publicly raised the issue last week just as another aid group, Oxfam—an international confederation of 20 non-governmental bodies—released a report of an internal investigation into a scandal involving workers it dispatched to Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.
That inquiry confirmed that various Oxfam staff members engaged in criminal behavior ranging from sexual abuse to fraud. The head of the mission, for example, admitted to using prostitutes in a villa rented by the aid group.
MacLeod has been a vocal advocate against abuses by UN aid workers since he resigned from the organization in 2009. “There’s a small number of people who deliberately target the aid world,” he told The Media Line. “We need to send a signal to the predatory pedophiles and the bad apples and the people tempted to turn bad [that] the aid industry will [no longer accept them and the way to do this is] by putting people in jail.”
In September, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres conceded in a high-profile speech that the problem is indeed widespread. “Sexual exploitation and abuse is not [limited to] peacekeeping, it is [across] the entire United Nations,” he stressed. “It pains me to say that this behavior is perpetrated both by civilians and uniformed personnel and in settings ranging from humanitarian crises to peace operations to refugee camps—where people are vulnerable and public safety is largely absent.”
Because many incidents go unreported, MacLeod believes the actual figure is much larger. “A lot of people have criticized me about the number I used but nobody has come up with a better one. The purpose is to put pressure on the UN to release [more information],” he asserted.
While admitting that his approach was far from scientific, MacLeod says he arrived at the 60,000 estimate based on extrapolations made after statements by the UN secretary-general, who revealed that in 2016 145 incidents were perpetrated by peacekeepers alone, claiming 311 victims. Given that Guterres admitted that many abuses occur in other UN spheres, Macleod suggests that the actual number of victims that file formal complaints with the UN could exceed 600 per year. Going one step further, MacLeod says that because only 14 percent of rapes are reported in the United Kingdom, then the true number of victims per year could be about 6,000, or ten times as many over a decade.
By contrast, the UN’s online database of reported allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse lists 825 identified victims since 2010, or an average of about 100 every year, most of whom live in Africa.
Accordingly, the Code Blue campaign, an initiative of AIDS-Free World, has slammed MacLeod for grossly exaggerating the figure, writing in a press release that it is “a fictitious number drawn from thin air and based on feckless extrapolations.”
Code Blue and MacLeod do see eye-to-eye on one important matter; namely, ensuring that UN workers accused of sexual exploitation are not protected by diplomatic immunity.
In response to such accusations, a Guterres spokesperson denied the UN shields its employees from prosecution in cases of abuse.
“Sexual exploitation and abuse by humanitarian workers of the very people they are meant to be helping is the gravest violation of trust,” Jens Laerke, a representative of the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, stressed to The Media Line in an email.

They say those who don’t pay attention to history are destined to repeat it. It seems like even though humans have paid attention, they somehow think the same things that failed in the past, like prohibition and communism, will magically work now.
Alcohol kills almost three times as many Americans as guns. Last year, about 33,000 people died of gunshot-related injuries, including those who shot themselves; suicide. When removing those who killed themselves only (again, suicide), that number drops to 15,549, by even anti-gun activists estimates. To put that in perspective, this year’s flu and the vaccine to “prevent” said flu is more deadly. So far, it’s been killing an estimated 4,000 Americans per week. That’s roughly 16,000 per month, a number already higher than last year’s total “gun deaths” which include justified homicides (or self-defense.) You don’t have to be a genius at math to understand that “gun violence” isn’t really the epidemic the media wants you to believe.
By comparison, alcohol abuse killed nearly 88,000 people in 2015 in the United States. So why not ban booze? Because the United States tried that. It was called prohibition, and it didn’t work. It resulted in the government poisoning their own people: yes, the US government. The same government that the anti-gun activists say wouldn’t do that to us. Rational humans would rather not see the government get a monopoly on guns. But the US has strayed rather far from logic, relying on emotional outbursts and teenage angst temper tantrums.
Joe Joseph from the Daily Sheeple also brings an interesting point to consider. “Did you know, that alcohol is the number one underlying cause and factor behind crime in the US?” Alcohol is alone causes more harm to society than heroin, cocaine, and marijuana combined.
So where’s society’s outrage over alcohol abuse? Why aren’t kids marching for alcohol control? Because prohibition doesn’t work. People who want to break the law and drink will do so. People snort cocaine regardless of the fact that it’s illegal. Where is society’s outrage at the right thing?
“Where are all the millions of dollars and campaign contributions and television ads trying to save people’s lives from the dangers of alcohol?” Joseph asks. “This is huge because we have to look at the facts. And the facts are: while it’s awful that these events take place, they’re anomalies in the grand scheme of things. Alcoholism is not an anomaly. It’s very present, ever present in our society and substance abuse is getting worse and worse and worse because the root cause isn’t being tackled.” The root cause is pain and voids within a person. The problem is that social engineering has created a god for people and that god is the government. And it’s a very poor substitute for actual spirituality, says Joseph.

Of course politicians, intelligence officials, and the entire swamp ecosystem will profit handsomely off the stupid Russian bot indictment cooked up by special counsel Robert Mueller…and all of it will be charged to the American taxpayer.
Follow the money to find the real reason Russian hysteria is in full throttle. There is profit to be made from pushing tall tales about 13 Russian bots subverting America’s pristine democracy.
It’s been barely a week since Special Counsel Robert Mueller unveiled indictments of 13 Russians and 3 Russian entities – including one close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin – and already Democrats are asking Congress for exorbitant sums of money to stop Russia’s army of internet trolls from “sowing discord” ahead of the US election – even though anybody who reads the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal is by now no doubt well-acquainted with the reality that these suspected trolls aren’t really all that interested in US politics.
According to Reuters, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are asking Congress for $300 million for the FBI to combat purported Russian disinformation campaigns ahead of the 2018 midterms in November.The big ask comes about a week after leaders of the US intelligence community testified to a Senate committee about the serious of the purported threat.
Democrats are asking that the money be included in the next continuing resolution, which must be signed into law before the March 23 deadline to avert another government shutdown. Republican leaders have been noncommittal.
Reuters fails to point out that the $300 million being asked is 3,000 times morethan the “13 Russian bots” allegedly spent on Facebook ads before (and mostly after) the US elections in 2016…
Citing warnings from intelligence agencies that Russia is trying to influence the upcoming vote, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi asked that the additional funds be included in a bill to fund the government which Congress aims to pass by March 23.
“This additional funding should be targeted to ensure the resources and manpower to counter the influence of hostile foreign actors operating in the U.S., especially Russian operatives operating on our social media platforms,” Schumer, Pelosi and the top Democrats on the Senate and House Appropriations Committees wrote in a letter.
They sent the letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Republican aides said the proposal, along with many others, would be considered as the spending legislation is written.
Leaders of U.S. intelligence agencies warned a Senate committee last week that Russia is trying to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections, when control of Congress is up for grabs, much as it did during the 2016 U.S. campaign.
And on Friday, the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians and 13 Russian companies with conspiracy to tamper with the 2016 race.
Zerohedge reports that in addition to this $300 million, Democrats also want a “substantial” increase in funding for the Department of Homeland Security and Election Assistance Commission to upgrade state election systems, which somebody (maybe the Russians?) tried to infiltrate.
Meanwhile Chuck “Fake Tears” Schumer is demanding that the White House write its own report on how Russia might try to interfere in the midterms…because (as Zerohedge points out) “a special counsel and three concomitant Congressional investigations isn’t enough”…
Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar said on a conference call with reporters that she would back $386 million for states.
Members of Congress have repeatedly decried what they see as federal officials’ failure to do more to work with states to protect the election system.
Homeland Security said last year that 21 states had experienced initial probing of their systems from Russian hackers and a small number of networks were compromised.
But three U.S. intelligence officials said protecting sources of information about the use of cyberspace to meddle in elections are a major obstacle to closer cooperation with state officials because much of the intelligence is so classified that it cannot be shared with anyone who does not have a high-level security clearance.

In this February 18th story over at the Daily Mail which Steve Quayle linked to on his website Monday they report a former pro wrestler has admitted to his role in the unsolved train track murders of two boys way back in 1987.
Claiming that the deaths of Kevin Ives and Don Henry were linked to a cocaine smuggling ring and that the information he knows implicates a ‘criminal Arkansas politician’, the claims made by former WWE star Billy Jack Haynes were quickly labeled the ravings of a madman by the ‘Clinton echo chamber’. With Haynes story not even touched by the rest of the mainstream media despite the fact that the Daily Mail story didn’t even mention Bill or Hillary Clinton, that connection was left to the story commenters who quickly ‘piled on’ the ‘Clinton crime family’. The fact that this story even made it to the Daily Mail is stunning. A hint of things to come?
While the deaths of Ives and Henry were first called a double suicide by the state of Arkansas medical examiner, a grand jury was brought up and found the deaths were likely the result of homicides instead and as the DM story reports, Haynes alleges that a far-reaching coverup orchestrated by that unnamed ‘criminal politician’ has been ongoing for the 30+ years since.
Is it just a coincidence that the governor of Arkansas in 1987 was Bill Clinton, where he was governor from 1983 to 1992?
While of course the Clinton’s as a ‘crime family’ will never be covered by the mainstream media which has been helping them cover up their treason and corruption ever since, the very real ‘matrix’ that we’ve been living within as Americans for several decades may be about to be shattered and it’s clear by this new story over at Yahoo News which the Drudge Report linked to on Monday that the globalists will do everything in their power to stop this ‘great awakening’ as heard in the 1st video below from the American Intelligence Media youtube channel.
As Yahoo news reports, a new online game being launched on Tuesday which they claim “is aimed at inoculating people against the spread of so-called fake news” attempts to do so by allowing players of the game to become their own ‘fake news tycoons’. Actually encouraging these ‘players’ to create falsehoods and grow an army of followers who are also pushing their contrived fake news, it’s long been known that satan himself is the father of lies and anybody intentionally pushing lies or ‘fake news’ is doing his handiwork. How many of these ‘fake news’ stories will actually make it into cyberspace and go viral? From the Yahoo story.:
The exercise encourages participants, who are tasked with building audiences for their imaginary fake news sites, to stoke fear, anger and mistrust by simulating the manipulation of online content.
In the game they choose polarising falsehoods to publish, cultivate an army of Twitter bots, fabricate evidence, and propagate dubious articles and conspiracy theories.
“If you know what it is like to walk in the shoes of someone who is actively trying to deceive you, it should increase your ability to spot and resist the techniques of deceit,” said Sander Van Der Linden, director of the university’s Social Decision-Making Lab.
If you too noticed the ‘vaccine symoblism’ being used, it’s not by accident as the Yahoo story goes on to report:
“We want to help grow ‘mental antibodies’ that can provide some immunity against the rapid spread of misinformation,” she added. The psychological theory behind the effort is called “inoculation”.
Researchers at Cambridge last year found that briefly exposing people to tactics used by fake news producers can act as a “psychological vaccine” against bogus anti-science campaigns.
A pilot study conducted with teenagers in a Dutch high school used an early paper-and-pen trial of the online game, and showed the perceived “reliability” of fake news to be diminished in teens that played compared to a control group.
“A biological vaccine administers a small dose of the disease to build immunity,” said Van Der Linden.
“Similarly, inoculation theory suggests that exposure to a weak or demystified version of an argument makes it easier to refute when confronted with more persuasive claims.”
As Susan Duclos recently mentioned to me, it was way back in the 1980’s that then CIA head William Casey stated “We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete When Everything the American Public Believes Is False”, a reality we’re quickly moving towards with the msm still running cover for the ‘Clinton crime family’ with any attempts to report upon their corruption called ‘conspiracy theory’.
And as one commenter mentions on the Yahoo story, “Exactly what are these people calling “fake news”? Progressives act like anything they don’t agree with is fake news, while they fabricate smear stories intended to publicly destroy their conservative political opponents.” With websites like Snopes gatekeeping truth by calling the ‘Clinton body count’ a ‘conspiracy theory’ and no msm outlets investigating the still growing list of dead bodies piling up surrounding them, we see why lots of fake news online could help keep the American sheeple totally dumbed down to the truth.
And with the msm still attempting to brainwash people, creating a ‘pseudo-reality’ as Susan Duclos reported Monday in this story on ANP, and now this ‘game’ coming out which encourages people to create ‘conspiracy theories’ and ‘fake news’ and pump it out into cyberspace further helping to distort reality, it’s easy to see how we’re zeroing in upon what Casey long ago warned of.
