“Shocking”: Americans Flood Beaches, Trampling Social Distancing Rules

from ZeroHedge:

After months of quarantine, Americans are finally breaking free from their homes this Memorial Day weekend, despite the potential consequences of sparking a second coronavirus wave. The battle between staying sane while cooped up in a home for months versus the ongoing pandemic is a challenging situation to balance. While some are venturing outside in absolute horror, others are putting their party face on and disregarding local public health orders.

A Member Of Congress Explains Why The Corruption In Congress Is Much Worse Than You Think

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

What would you say if I told you that committee chairs were for sale in Congress?  And what would you say if I told you that many members of Congress spend far more time on the telephone raising money than on the jobs that the people of their states actually elected them to do?  There is a reason why so many Americans absolutely hate Congress.  At this moment, Congress has an approval rating of just 15 percent, and approval ratings for Congress have been at extremely low levels for a very long time.  We all know that Congress has become completely corrupt, that it is completely unresponsive to the American people and that it has become all about the money.  Many have asked why I would want to become part of such a corrupt institution, and I respond by saying that it is time to take our government back.

In the very close race that I am currently involved in, there is an exceedingly clear choice between politics as usual and someone that is committed to going to Washington and turning the system completely upside down.

I believe that we need to send people to Washington that will be willing to stand up to the leadership of both parties.  Below, I am going to share some things that a current member of Congress is saying about the corruption in D.C. that will blow your mind.  Many would suggest that the corruption is so pervasive that it is useless to try to do anything about it.  But I say that if “we the people” can get Donald Trump into the White House, then “we the people” can also take Congress back.

To get a feel for how passionate I am about this, please watch the short speeches that I made to the Latah County Republicans and the Nez Perce County Republicans over the weekend.  The response to both talks was incredibly positive, and we are winning over more voters with each passing day.

We have just launched our final money bomb of the 2018 primary campaign, and we are trying to raise $35,000 so that we can fully implement our entire plan for pulling ahead in this very tight race over the last 60 days.  If you would like to make a contribution, here are several ways that you can do so…

U.S. Representative Ken Buck was elected to Congress in 2014, and he recently authored a book that is shaking Washington to the core.  The following is what USA Today had to say about it…

And the second-term Republican is unlikely to make many more with Tuesday’s publication of his tell-all book, Drain the Swamp: How Washington is Worse Than You Think, co-authored with Bill Blankschaen.

In it, Buck says lawmakers are mostly “fat and happy alligators who feel pretty darn comfortable in the swamp.” He casts Republican leaders as “playground bullies” who go to great lengths, including yanking subcommittee chairmanships and canceling lawmakers’ overseas trips, to punish dissenters. And he decries a “pay-to-play” system in which plum committee assignments and leadership slots are tied to lawmakers’ fundraising skills instead of their policy expertise.

One of the things that Buck has revealed that upset me the most is the fact that committee chairs are essentially for sale in Washington.  Here is a brief excerpt from Buck’s book

Here’s how it works for Republicans. If you want to serve on a committee, you have to raise money for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). The amount varies depending on the committee and role. For example, to serve on a B or C level committee, a GOP House freshman member must raise $220,000 every two years … Veteran members on A committees must raise more than twice that amount  $450,000 … If you become the chair of a B committee – congratulations – you’re now expected to raise $875,000 a year for the NRCC. Chairing an A committee means you must raise $1.2 million.

In order to raise such large amounts of money, members of Congress are expected to spend approximately four hours a day on the telephone raising money.  This is something that I wrote an extended article about last week.

The Property-Based Social Order Is Being Destroyed by Central Banks

by Zachary Yost, Mises Institute:

Readers of the Mises Wire are no doubt familiar with the negative consequences of central banking and the inflationary capacity of fiat currency and how such a system drives malinvestment and leads to boom-bust cycles. Not only does the business cycle lead to the misallocation of resources from their natural ends of the structure of production, but it also drives resources into financialization, rather than the “real” economy. This financialization, which has been taking place since at least the First World War, has served, over time, to structurally undermine the morality of property in the eyes of the general public. As the increased popularity of socialism, at least in rhetorical terms, among the youth indicates this “evaporation” of property may reach a critical mass within the not-too-distant future.

Sidney Powell Discusses Special Counsel Role in Continuing Corrupt DOJ and FBI Effort….

from The Conservative Treehouse:

Michael Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell appears with Liz MacDonald to discuss the ongoing corrupt evidence surfacing against a variety of DOJ and FBI officials to include the special counsel effort to scrub their phone records.

Within the interview Ms. Powell highlights the arc of the investigative effort from the origin of ‘Spygate’ through the term of the special counsel led by Andrew Weissmann, and into the Senate effort to cloud and conceal their own participation.

Helicopters and Military Humvees With Mounted Gun Turrets Deployed for Protests In D.C.

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

We have seen a lot of police brutality and crazy rioting over the past week. As a sign of potential escalation, video has emerged of Humvees with machine gun turrets mounted on the top driving down the streets of DC, while a black red cross medical helicopter was used by the National Guard to show force against protesters at the capitol. And if that’s not enough, there is news of protesters disappearing in Chicago.

Decoding Davos — The Global Endgame

by Jesse Smith, Activist Post:

Our first video is now live for viewing! This in-depth documentary will take you on a journey of Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s bid for total control of the planet.

George Orwell’s chilling line about “a boot stomping on your face forever” from his book 1984 is very close to its ultimate fulfillment. You see, the people who boldly announced that “by 2030 you’ll own nothing and be happy” and that you’ll merely “rent whatever you need” met during the week of Jan. 25, 2021 to discuss plans for a total reshaping of the planet. That’s right, I’m talking about the World Economic Forum also known as, the Davos Class.

BREAKING: New Documents Show Democrat Adam Schiff Mischaracterized Evidence In Impeachment, Report Suggests

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

A new report on Tuesday night alleges that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to have “mischaracterized” evidence that was used in House Democrats’ impeachment investigation.

The problem stems from a letter that Schiff sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) last week that summarizes “a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani,” Politico reported. “In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas ‘continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,’ citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: ‘trying to get us mr Z.’ The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.”

What Will You Say When Your Adult Children Ask You What You Did to Fight Against the Satanic New World Order?

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

We live in a world perverted by the Bolsheviks who are destroying our culture. Worse yet, there are so-called conservatives who do nothing to stem the tide of the takeover. We are not just losing our government, we are losing our heritage and our humanity. The most peverse is now the most normal. Being a Christian is a hate crime. However, in recent days, I almost see signs of life in the American people. Schiff was just booed off stage. Comey apologized, for whatever that is worth. However, the damage is done and we are still hopelessly inactive as a people. Is this the beginning of a populist movement? Or is this the new awakening a mirage?
