Controlled Explanations Rule the Western World

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Now that the lying machine that comprises the US and Western media has failed with the Russiagate propaganda, the machine has switched to Chinagate. https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article235990528.html? 

The least trusted American Institution, other than the CIA, is the FBI.  McClatchy news reports that the FBI has “expanded its task force on election security beyond examining Russian efforts ahead of the 2020 race to include intelligence activities by China, Iran and North Korea.”

“A White House official told McClatchy that the National Security Council stands by its assessment made public in June that Beijing intends to influence the election to suit its interests.”

The Continuing Adventures of Adam “Shifty” Schiff with Karen Kataline

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Karen Kataline is back… The latest revelation in the ongoing saga to get President Trump is that Adam Schiff conferred with the so-called “whistleblower” before the complaint at issue was ever made. This is something Schiff lied about on national television; he said he had never spoken directly with the whistleblower. That’s just one lie in a string of lies that never seems to matter if you’re a Democrat or if you’re out to destroy the President. Perhaps most vexing is that these lies and coordinated attacks are often treated as if they happened in a vacuum, without motive or pattern, and certainly not with acknowledgement that the accusations have continued to be proven false.

Why Banks Didn’t Lend to the Repo Market When Rates Blew Out: JPMorgan CEO Dimon

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

“Does that mean that we have bad markets?”

This still doesn’t show who or what triggered the fire in the repo market in mid-September when overnight lending rates more than quadrupled and briefly hit 10%, but it confirms who sat there and watched the fire and fanned it though they could have extinguished it.

An Historical Sea Change Has Been Launched by President Trump

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The extraordinary transformation taking place in Syria today reflects a global phase shift which was launched over the past weeks by President Donald Trump, in coordination with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, China’s Xi Jinping, India’s Narendra Modi, Pakistan’s Imran Khan, and several leaders in the Middle East.

Although the situation on the ground in northern Syria is very much in flux, there can be no question but that the potential for ending the war in Syria, and beginning to resolve other historical “hot spots” in East Asia and Southwest Asia, all created by the British Empire, is well under way. President Trump has, in the past few weeks, declared political warfare on the decrepit and corrupt U.S. establishment, including both political parties, the entire corporate press, and the financial institutions behind the “military-industrial complex,” which he attacked by name.

Fake News, Fake Polls, and Now, Fake History

by Wayne Madsen, Strategic Culture:

Donald Trump, who believes everything that is real is fake and everything that is fake is real, has delved into another academic discipline for which he believes he is an eminent expert. After promulgating his own fake weather forecasts, political opinion polls, and news, Trump has now proclaimed his own fake history. After abandoning to invading Turkish forces the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces, who have been allied with US Special Forces battling the Islamic State caliphate jihadists in Syria, Trump stated, “They [the Kurds] didn’t help us in the World War II, they didn’t help us with Normandy, as an example.”

DC’s Atlantic Council Raked in Funding from Hunter Biden’s Corruption-Stained Ukrainian Employer While Courting His VP Father

by Max Blumenthal, Consortium News:

Max Blumenthal reports on the think tank’s shady arrangement with Burisma, the gas company at the center of  “Ukrainegate.” 

With its relentless focus on corruption in Russia and Ukraine, the Atlantic Council has distinguished itself from other top-flight think tanks in Washington. Over the past several years, it has held innumerable conferences and panel discussions, issued a string of reports, and published literally hundreds of essays on Russia’s “kleptocracy” and the scourge of Kremlin disinformation.

In Depth Analysis Of The Failed Attempt To Overthrow The Results Of The 2016 Election: Impeachment Already Backfiring On Democrats As Trump & RNC Donations Spike & Swing Voters Accuse Dems Of Ignoring Important Issues

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Within 36 hours of Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announcing an “impeachment inquiry,” President Trump and the RNC hauled in $13 million in donations. $5 million from online donors in all 50 states, $5 million from a fundraiser, and another $3 million from a breakfast event.

After the announcement, Democrats also returned to their home states and were faced with anti-impeachment protests from their own constituents, especially “red state Democrats,” who won elections in conservatives districts.

Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Accepted Help From Harvey Weinstein to Get Rid of Sanders, US Author Claims

from Sputnik News:

A representative for the film mogul, who has been charged with numerous sex offences, has dismissed the report, while admitting that Harvey Weinstein did indeed support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, including financially.

The office of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign accepted help from accused sex offender Harvey Weinstein, who tried to assist the Democratic frontrunner in getting rid of her main competition in the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, US journalist Ronan Farrow claims in his new book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators”.

Taibbi: Impeaching Trump Would Establish ‘Intelligence Community Veto over Elections’

by Joshua Caplan, Breitbart:

Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi reframes the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry — and its latest development in the arrest of two associates of Rudy Giuliani — as a “permanent coup” against President Trump playing out more slowly than coups he has experienced firsthand in other nations.

Taibbi’s article comes after he criticized corporate media’s framing of the Deep Stater as a non-partisan “whistleblower,” despite being a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden in the White House.

Cops seize elderly crossing guard’s guns under ‘Red Flag’ law after he criticized school resource officer

by Victor Skinner, The American Mirror:

Police in Martha’s Vineyard used red flag laws to seize the guns of an 84-year-old Korean War veteran over a comment the man made to a friend at a local diner.

Stephen Nichols was meeting with Edgartown resident Andy Marcus at Linda Jean’s diner in Oak Bluffs a couple of weeks ago when he mentioned that Tisbury School resource officer Scott Ogden often leaves his post as kids arrive to drink coffee at Xtra Mart, according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times.

Nichols, who works as the school’s crossing guard, told his friend someone could “shoot up the school” in Ogden’s absence and criticized the officer for “leaving his post.” Those comments apparently unnerved a waitress at Linda Jean’s, who contacted the police to tattle on the elderly U.S. Army veteran.

Ellen and The Fall of The Bloodline Aristocracy

by Tiffany Fitzhenry, Tiffany Fitzhenry:

There’s a new idea that’s begun swirling around in my head the last week; our planet is undergoing a change in management.

As I’ve realized this, I’ve started to look at things quite differently.

I’ve begun to see that all the chaos and fighting, the manufactured mayhem, the Soros-funded protests, the people like Megan McCain screeching at Americans about the ‘dangers’ of pulling out of Syria, all of it is nothing more than the dust and debris that’s created during construction. It’s a bloody mess, yes, but the demolition always comes first when you’re making improvements. And right now our planet is getting an upgrade.
