Yes, the deep state is real… and it’s watching you: FBI caught running 3.1 million covert searches of U.S. citizens in latest abuse of power

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

We were hoping that President Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” would involve the firing (or indictment and conviction) of rogue members of the deep state who couldn’t care less about the Constitution and run their agencies like their own unaccountable fiefdoms.

So far, the president has managed to cut back on a lot of regulations and reign in otherwise benign agencies from implementing willy-nilly all sorts of onerous new regulations that cost businesses and consumers lots of money but don’t really accomplish much other than to make government bigger.

The Syria Template

0

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The beleaguered nation of Syria—nearly wiped off the map by a decade of British geopolitical warfare executed by London and the Obama Administration; the cockpit of intended thermonuclear conflict between the United States and Russia; and ravaged by terrorism and bled white by millions of desperate refugees who fled for their lives—has in the last week become the centerpiece of an entirely new systemic world order based on sovereignty and development.

US Launched Secret Cyber Strike On Iran After Saudi Aramco Attack

from ZeroHedge:

Most Americans don’t realize it, but the US is actually at war with Iran. It’s just that many don’t understand how war can be defined by five domains: air, land, sea, space, and cyber.

So when we read an exclusive Reuters report Wednesday morning about the US launching a secret cyberattack on Iran after the Sept. 14 attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, it makes us wonder — just how close is an actual shooting war, and in what domain will the battle spillover to next?

Reuters spoke with several US officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the cyberattacks were launched in late Sept., several weeks after Iran attacked Saudi Aramco oil facilities.

Two Admitted Felons, UBS and Citigroup, Are Now Gaming Wall Street’s Private Justice System

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

Yesterday, the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA) Foundation released a research study showing that Wall Street’s banks and brokerage firms are back to their old tricks again in gaming the private justice system that its crony self-regulator, FINRA, has carved out for the benefit of Wall Street to the detriment of Main Street.

PIABA previously exposed how FINRA, when it was called NASD, rigged the selection process for picking arbitrators so that the croniest ones kept getting selected. PIABA released this statement on July 20, 2000:

69 Percent Of U.S. Households “Are Preparing For A Possible Recession”

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Do you believe that a recession is coming?  If so, you certainly have a lot of company.  It turns out that more than two-thirds of all U.S. households “are preparing for a possible recession” right now.  There is a growing national consensus that that U.S. economy is heading for big trouble, and this is causing a lot of people to cut back on spending.  In fact, we just witnessed the first drop in retail sales in seven months.  If this slowdown in retail spending extends into the holiday season, that could potentially be absolutely disastrous for the entire retail industry.  We are already in the midst of the worst “retail apocalypse” in U.S. history, and we are learning of more store closings with each passing day.  But of course it isn’t just the retail industry that is in very serious trouble, and I have some brand new numbers from a couple of other sectors that I will share with you below.

The IRS Admits it is Targeting the Poor Because it is “Easier and Cheaper” Than Auditing the Wealthy

by Jenny Jayne, The Organic Prepper:

The IRS has announced that it’s “too expensive” to audit the rich. Affluent taxpayers, the 1%, are too well protected from government intrusion. Their tax returns are complex and take more time and more experienced auditors to review them. The IRS then has to pay these more experienced auditors a higher price to audit those larger accounts. It’s become an expensive hassle for them. They encounter resistance from the teams that the affluent have behind them to defend them from the IRS. So, what is their solution?

CNN Pretty Much Just Confirmed Project Veritas’s Whistleblower Is Telling The Truth

by Timothy Meads, Townhall:

CNN really isn’t doing itself any favors to distance itself from Project Veritas’ groundbreaking video release this week focusing on the inner-workings of their network. On Wednesday, CNN released a digital ad showing that the network is solely focused on impeachment. On tape, Project Veritas caught CNN president Jeff Zucker saying this is all he wants to focus on, and ignore pretty much the rest of everything in the news.
