Trump and American History Have Been Assassinated

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

When Trump was elected I wrote that it was unlikely that he would be successful in accomplishing the three objectives for which he was elected—peace with Russia, the return home of offshored US jobs, and effective limits on non-white immigration—because these objectives conflicted with the interests of those more powerful than the president.

I wrote that Trump was unfamiliar with Washington and would fail to appoint a government that would support his goals. I wrote that unless the ruling oligarchy could bring Trump under its control,Trump would be assassinated.

Trump has been brought under control by assassinating him with words rather than with a bullet. With Steve Bannon’s dismissal, there is now no one in Trump’s government who supports him. He is surrounded by Russophobic generals and Zionists.

But this is not enough for the liberal/progressive/left. They want Trump impeached and driven from office.

Marjorie Cohn, whom I have always admired for her defense of civil liberty, has disappointed me. She has written in Truthout, which sadly has become more like PropagandaOut, that the House must bring articles of impeachment against Trump for his abuse of power and before he launches a new civil war and/or nuclear war.

This is an extraordinary conclusion for a normally intelligent person to reach. What power does Trump have? How does he abuse his non-existent power? The ruling Establishment has cut his balls off. He is neutered. Powerless. He has been completely isolated within his own government by the oligarchy.

Even more astonishingly, Marjorie Cohn, together with 100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the liberal/progressive/left are blind to the fact that they have helped the military/security complex destroy the only leader who advocated peace instead of conflict with the other major nuclear power. Cohn is so deranged by hatred of Trump that she thinks it is Trump who will bring nuclear war by normalizing relations with Russia.

Clearly, the American liberal/progressive/left is no longer capable of rational thought. Hate rules. There is nothing in their lexicon but hate.

The American liberal/progressive/left has degenerated into idiocy. They think that they are fighting “white nationalism” in the White House and that Trump is a champion or symbol of “white nationalism” and that there will be no victory until Trump and all symbols of “white nationalism” are obliterated.

Little do they understand. Ajamu Baraka spells it out for them in CounterPunch. White Supremacy, he writes, is inculcated into the cultural and educational institutions of the West. Liberal and leftist whites are also white supremacists, says Baraka, and Trump and the “alt-right” are nothing but a superficial useful platform on which the white supremacist American liberal/progressive/left can parade its self-righteousness. Ajamu Baraka’s conclusion is “that in order for the world to live, the 525-year-old white supremacist Pan-European, colonial/capitalist patriarchy must die.” It is not difficult to see in this statement that genocide is the solution for the white plague upon humanity. Little wonder the “alt-right” gets exercised by the anti-white propaganda of Identity Politics.

Non-white immigration will finish off the shards of remaining European civilization. All current demographics indicate that all of Europe and North America will sooner than you expect be occupied by non-white majorities.

The problem is not so much the immigrants themselves as it is that they are taught to hate whites by white liberal/progressive/leftists. The destruction of statues will not end with Robert E. Lee’s. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington are next. They owned slaves, whereas the Lee family’s slaves were freed by will three years prior to the Lincoln’s invasion of the South. The Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln memorials will have to be destroyed also as they, too, are momuments to racism. Indeed, according to the Identity Politics of the Liberal/progressive/left the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution are White Supremacy documents written by racists. This doubles the indictment against Thomas Jefferson and adds all of the Founding Fathers to the indictment. All are guilty of institutionalizing White Supremacy in America.

The uninformed insouciant Average American may think that this is a joke. But no. It is the orthodoxy of the white American intellectual class. It is taught in all the universities.

In Atlanta they are talking about erasing the heads of the South’s generals carved into Stone Mountain. Mount Rushmore in South Dakota will be next. It has carved into it the heads of Washington, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. All racists, and Roosevelt was a colonialist and imperialist to boot. Lincoln was the worst racist of all.

Economist/historian Thomas DiLorenzo reminds us that “to his dying day, Lincoln was busy plotting the deportation of all the black people in America, including the soon-to-be-freed slaves.”https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/11/thomas-dilorenzo/next-target-blacklivesmatter/

The following statements are all statements that are in Abe Lincoln’s Collected Works:

“I have said that the separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation [of the white and black races] . . . Such separation . . . must be affected by colonization” [sending blacks to Liberia or Central America]. (Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln vol. II, p. 409).

“Let us be brought to believe it is morally right, and . . . favorable to . . . our interest, to transfer the African to his native clime.” (Collected Works, vol. II, p. 409). 

“I am not nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races. I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people” (Collected Works, vol. III, pp. 145-146).

Chief Obamacare Architect Fired, Forced To Settle Fraudulent Billing Investigation In Vermont

0

from ZeroHedge:

If not for the undercover video below in which MIT professor, and chief Obamacare architect, Jonathan Gruber attributed the passage of Obamacare to the “stupidity of the American voter,” most Americans wouldn’t even have known it was Gruber who was responsible for eternally destroying the healthcare system in the U.S.

Unfortunately, the now infamous MIT prof just had to open his mouth and the video just had to go viral…which means that all the rest of us have to live the remainder of our lives with the knowledge that one elitist, leftist professor who has probably never worked a day outside of academia and/or government in his life is the sole reason we can suddenly no longer afford to buy health insurance for our families.

Now, according to the Vermont Rutland HeraldGruber’s perpetual desire to save American voters from their own stupidity has landed him in some hot water with Vermont’s Attorney General T.J. Donovan.  As the Herald explains, Gruber was apparently hired as a consultant by Vermont’s former Governor to assist with analyzing a single-payer healthcare system but got a little too creative with his invoices…

Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan said his office has concluded an investigation into the invoices and billing practices of Dr. Jonathan Gruber, an economic consultant who contracted with the state to provide policy expertise, research and economic modeling for Vermont’s abandoned single-payer healthcare system.

Former Gov. Peter Shumlin sought to create the single-payer system, known as Green Mountain Care, but eventually walked away from the plan after determining it would cost too much. The attorney general’s office’s began the investigation into Gruber’s billing after receiving a referral by State Auditor Doug Hoffer.

Donovan said Thursday his office and Gruber reached an agreement to settle the state’s potential legal claim that Gruber submitted false claims to the state under Vermont’s Civil False Claims Act. Donovan said his office concluded that Gruber’s conduct violated the Vermont Civil False Claims Act. Gruber denied a violation, but in order to resolve the case, he agreed to forgo any further payments from the state that he might be owed.

Donovan’s office found that Gruber submitted at least two invoices that were false with respect to the amount of work performed by a research assistant working for Gruber. The supporting documentation provided by Gruber did not reflect the actual hours worked by the research assistant, nor did the assistant keep records accurately reflecting the hours he devoted to the state project, Donovan said.

Gruber’s contract was originally supposed to pay him as much as $400,000 to test economic models related to Shumlin’s health care proposal. The contract allowed the state to use the Gruber Microsimulation Model that Gruber developed to simulate the implementation of Shumlin’s plan and test various financing mechanisms.

Internet Party Anti-Spy Bill Hosts John Kiriakou, CIA Whistleblower

0

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

Suzie Dawson of the Internet Party hosted the second Anti Spy Bill event late yesterday. During the proceedings, Kim DotCom spoke with CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou regarding the CIA’s torture program and the methods used by authorities to target whistleblowers.

The Internet Party will continue to host weekly events in order to continue work on the Anti-Spy Bill.

John Kiriakou, Suzie Dawson and Kim DotCom discussed the need for oversight in regards to the CIA. Kiriakou stated that the agency required strong oversight, as he said the CIA was constantly pushing moral, legal and ethical boundaries. Kiriakou discussed having witnessed the instigation of a CIA torture program in the wake of the September 11th 2001 terror attacks, which he described as having inspired a radical culture shift within the agency.

Kiriakou spoke about a 2007 media appearance where he had revealed the existence of the CIA’s illegal torture program. He described the interview as having utterly changed the course of his life after he revealed publicly for the first time that the CIA tortures its prisoners, torture was official government program, and that this program had been personally approved by President Bush.

Although legally cleared during the Bush Presidency, Kiriakou described his surprise that President Obama had allowed the FBI to secretly investigate him, eventually charging him with five felonies, including espionage. Kiriakou expressed deep surprise that he had been the only person who had spoken publicly about the torture program. He stressed the importance of transparency, emphasizing that the American public must know what is being done in its name. Kiriakou described the authorities’ investigation as having culminated in an effort to entrap him due to a lack of evidence against him.

Kiriakou also described having sent an open letter to Edward Snowden in the wake of his groundbreaking publication of surveillance methods, warning Snowden not to cooperate with the FBI.

Kim Dotcom told Kiriakou: “Every once in a while these organizations run into people like us, smart people who understand what’s going on, who understand there are other people fighting against this unjust system and want to reform this injustice. Our duty is to fight these cases to the end to remind people what is going on, because that’s the only way to let people know what is happening. If we don’t do this, no one else will.”

Suzie Dawson observed during the event that CIA torturers were reported to have been selected specifically based on histories of domestic and sexual violence. Kiriakou responded that it requires a special kind of monster to inflict that kind of physical, psychological and emotional harm on a person without losing their soul.

The Peak of Globalization and The Reason Trump Won

0

by Harry Dent, Market Oracle:

Fareed Zakaria just put out a special show on why Trump won: He got the rural white vote in unprecedented margins – like 80{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} plus. Even before Election Day, we put out an infographic explaining why Trump could win despite the polls. Still, even I was a little surprised when he won!

I bring this up again now, not to bash Trump, but to highlight the demographic and cyclical explanation behind his victory. And to show that the events that brought Trump into power aren’t done stirring things up. There’s a lot more to come. Trump is only the beginning…

My father was a major political strategist at the state and national level. In fact, he was the architect of the “Southern Strategy.” He got Nixon elected in 1968 with a campaign that touted a vote for Wallace (the strong third-party candidate in the conservative South) was a vote for Humphrey, one of the more liberal candidates ever. He used his uber-conservative senator ally, Strom Thurmond, who he managed his campaigns for over a decade, to counter the southern conservative voters to back Nixon as a counter to Humphrey.

My father told me when I was a kid, that it wasn’t the average voter that decides elections. Rather, it was the swing vote – 15{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} to 20{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} – what he called the “all-star wrestling fans.” And don’t think this was meant as an insult. He loved watching the wrestling shows. He loved the drama and the everyday entertainment. I never saw him laugh as much as when he was watching.

I found later in my demographic research that 16{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of people regularly watch all-star wrestling… that was an “aha” moment for me.

Globalization Has Reached its Peak

We have been documenting for many years that the top 20{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, and more so the top 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} and 0.1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, have been dominating the income and wealth gains since the 1990s, much as they did in the early 1900s into the 1929 peak. Back then, the top 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} controlled 50{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the wealth.

This is simply not sustainable! You can’t have the generals advancing without the troops.

That peak in stocks and the economy in late 1929 led to the Great Depression… and as few have fully noticed, the middle class rose out of that deflationary crisis because it favored them over the upper class for decades, especially from 1945 forward.

And that same pattern will repeat this time around as well, according to my 80-Year Four-Stage Economic Cycle, which shows that we entered the Economic Winter Season in 2008. Central banks have been desperately stimulating to counter the effects of this season ever since. However, they can’t and won’t win this battle against the fundamental trends.

Debt and financial asset bubbles always favor the upper class that owns most of those financial assets. But when those bubbles burst, the rich get hit the hardest, even more than the everyday people, even though they’re the first to lose their jobs. The deflation that follows a burst bubble lowers the cost of living for everyday people and the upper class loses the most in financial assets that deflate.

Everyday people still feel the effects from wage competition with the likes of Asia and immigrants (legal and illegal). I’ve shown in many Economy & Markets articles and Leading Edge issues how the middle and lower middle class have lost in their real wage gains since 2000. This is why these people were (and remain) so angry, and why many voted for Trump.

This is the beginning of the next Civil War, as I outline in more depth in my up-and-coming book Zero Hour. It’s due out mid-November.

The red states and blue states can’t agree on political policies or much of anything else, and there’s a real chance we may see this country split. Europe faces the same potential, map-shattering, change, as does much of the rest of the world.

Globalization is peaking, and could retreat for a few decades, like it did from 1913 to 1945.

It’s been a major driver of growth since World War II. Look at this chart of global trade since the 1500s. It accelerated from the mid-1800s into World War I, then retreated for decades!

America’s Second Civil War

by Patrick J. Buchanan, Lew Rockwell:

“They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee — and what a leader! … No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller.”

So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial “The Oxford History of the American People” in 1965.

First in his class at West Point, hero of the Mexican War, Lee was the man to whom President Lincoln turned to lead his army. But when Virginia seceded, Lee would not lift up his sword against his own people, and chose to defend his home state rather than wage war upon her.

This veneration of Lee, wrote Richard Weaver, “appears in the saying attributed to a Confederate soldier, ‘The rest of us may have … descended from monkeys, but it took a God to make Marse Robert.’”

Growing up after World War II, this was accepted history.

Yet, on the militant left today, the name Lee evokes raw hatred and howls of “racist and traitor.” A clamor has arisen to have all statues of him and all Confederate soldiers and statesmen pulled down from their pedestals and put in museums or tossed onto trash piles.

What has changed since 1965?

It is not history. There have been no great new discoveries about Lee.

What has changed is America herself. She is not the same country. We have passed through a great social, cultural and moral revolution that has left us irretrievably divided on separate shores.

And the politicians are in panic.

Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division, and violence.”

Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease.

McAuliffe is echoed by Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the Democratic candidate in November to succeed McAuliffe. GOP nominee Ed Gillespie wants Monument Avenue left alone.

The election is the place to decide this, but the left will not wait.

In Durham, North Carolina, our Taliban smashed the statue of a Confederate soldier. Near the entrance of Duke University Chapel, a statue of Lee has been defaced, the nose broken off.

Wednesday at dawn, Baltimore carried out a cultural cleansing by taking down statues of Lee and Maryland Chief Justice Roger Taney who wrote the Dred Scott decision and opposed Lincoln’s suspension of the right of habeas corpus.

Like ISIS, which smashed the storied ruins of Palmyra, and the al-Qaida rebels who ravaged the fabled Saharan city of Timbuktu, the new barbarism has come to America. This is going to become a blazing issue, not only between but within the parties.

For there are 10 Confederates in Statuary Hall in the Capitol, among them Lee, Georgia’s Alexander Stephens, vice president to Jefferson Davis, and Davis himself. The Black Caucus wants them gone.

Mount Rushmore-sized carvings of Lee, Jackson and Davis are on Stone Mountain, Georgia. Are they to be blasted off?

The Nazification of the United States

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Earlier this week, I likened George Soros, and his role in promoting violence at Charlottesville, to what Joseph Goebbels did in a series false flag events which will eventually bring the Nazis to power in Germany.

The Nazification of the United States is moving forward at breakneck speed. Nazi philosophies are appearing in every segment of our society and every level of government.

Both Steve Quayle and the late Jim Marrs have stated that the allies defeated the German military but the Nazis won the war. Not only have the Nazis won the war, they are taking over America.

The Creation of Der Fatherland

Markss Wolfe is the man who is credited with building up the feared East German secret police that was responsible for the disappearance and deaths of thousands of citizens. He was driving force behind the machinery of state terror; a legacy that still has a chilling affect on many Germans.

Following 9/11, Wolfe was paid $5 million to set up the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). From DHS, we see the creation of the TSA will commits second degree sexual assault against the American public in the introduction of the “Paper Please” society that we have become. And for all the trouble and nuisance that TSA has become, they have never caught one terrorist or stopped one terrorist plot.

Do you remember when you first heard the term, “HOMELAND Security”.  I thought I had fallen asleep and awakened in Nazi Germany. Prior to 2001, Americans would never have referred to themselves as living in the homeland. This was a term reserved for the World War II era Nazis.

In the 21st century, we are witnessing the Nazifiction of the United States at every level.

Oregon’s Master Race Program

Senate Bill 494, recently introduced in the Oregon Legislature, would allow the starving and dehydrating of patients who suffer from dementia or mental illness.

“A perfect illustration of the danger this bill presents can be seen in a situation involving an Ashland, Oregon resident named Nora Harris who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. After moving into a memory care facility, Nora eventually lost the ability to communicate her wishes. She lost her fine motor skills as well, which prevented her from using utensils. Hungry, she would eat and drink what was offered to her, but her husband sought a court order to require the nursing home to stop assisting her. However, the court would not deny Nora basic sustenance because that would have violated Oregon law. Now Oregon legislators are pushing to remove this legal protection and issue a license to kill!”

Oregon’s Nazi Eugenics Breeding Program

Amy DeFabbrini, 31, and Eric Ziegler, 38, have lost custody of both of their sons.  The eldest son, Christopher, was taken by the state of Oregon shortly after he was born. Five months ago, the state took their second child, Hunter, directly from the mother’s womb at the hospital. Both children are now in foster care. Oregon’s Department of Human Services has removed both boys, using the justification that the parents are too mentally limited to be good parents and no supporting criteria was offered to support the kidnapping of the two children.

Youtube, Google, Twiter, Facebook Are “Burning Books”

Book burning is a euphemism for censorship and this is what we are seeing from social media. The social media outlets are presenting a the unified front of being anti-Christian, anti-White, and anti-Constitution. The giant social media behemoths behaviors are right out of the Nazi playbook of controlling all media prior to engaging in genocide. And who will be their targets? The targets are listed in this paragraph.

YouTube (i.e. Google) and Facebook are acting as unregulated monopolies. They provide a privately owned platform in which the Independent Media provides a conservative interpretation of the news as opposed to the radical left-wing Mainstream media who espouses such values as expressing anti-Christian views, advocating for the continual erosion of the Bill of Rights and the rest of the Constitution, completely open borders in which anyone with two legs and carrying weapons of mass destruction can illegally cross our borders take up residence, all courtesy of the US taxpayer. And according to Facebook and YouTube they have the right to ban you from using their platform for espousing traditional American values that our country was founded on.

Present Day Nazis Are Erasing History Just Like Their Predecessors

All across America, the ignorant, being blindly led by George Soros, are defacing public monuments to the civil war. One has to wonder if ruling authority has plans to tear the pages out of the history books about the civil war all together.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Staffers Compromised Sensitive Data to Foreign Intelligence?

0

by Paul Sperry, New York Post:

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.

What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.

Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.

 

Alarm bells went off in April 2016 when computer security officials in the House reported “irregularities” in computer equipment purchasing. An internal investigation revealed the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars in government property, and evidence pointed to five IT staffers and the Democratic Congress members’ offices that employed them.

The evidence was turned over to the House inspector general, who found so much “smoke” that she recommended a criminal probe, sources say. The case was turned over to Capitol Police in October.

When the suspected IT workers couldn’t produce the missing invoiced equipment, sources say, they were removed from working on the computer network in early February.

During the probe, investigators found valuable government data that is believed to have been taken from the network and placed on offsite servers, setting off more alarms. Some 80 offices were potentially compromised.

Most lawmakers fired the alleged “ringleader” — longtime IT staffer Imran Awan — in February. But Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee chief, kept Awan on her payroll until his arrest last month on seemingly unrelated charges of defrauding the congressional credit union.

For more than a decade, Awan, his wife, two relatives and a friend worked for 30 House Democrats. They included New York City pols Gregory Meeks, Joseph Crowley and Yvette Clarke and members of the sensitive Intelligence and Foreign Relations committees.

The Democrats who hired the five suspects apparently did a poor job vetting them. Awan’s brother Abid had a rap sheet with multiple offenses, including a conviction for DWI a month before he was hired, and filed for bankruptcy in 2012.

Most had relatively little IT experience. Yet they hauled in a combined $4 million-plus over the past decade. One, a former McDonald’s worker, was suddenly making as much as a chief of staff.

“These lawmakers allowed an insider threat to come into the House,” the official charged. “Computer equipment was stolen, taxpayers were robbed of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and sensitive data was compromised and possibly sold overseas.”

On Thursday, a federal grand jury indicted Imran Awan on four seemingly unrelated felony counts including bank fraud, conspiracy and making false statements. They also indicted his wife, Hina Alvi. FBI agents seized hard drives and other evidence from their Virginia home.

The indictment says the couple wired close to $300,000 in fraudulently obtained funds to Pakistan in January, as the Capitol Police investigation heated up.

FBI agents last month collared Awan, 37, at the Dulles International Airport airport as he tried to board a flight to Pakistan. Alvi, 33, fled to Pakistan in March.

Now that prosecutors have Awan hung up on the fraud charges, they will try to squeeze him harder in the larger cyberespionage investigation, according to the US official, who expects additional charges and arrests in the case.

Awan’s lawyer, Christopher Gowen, who has worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaigns as well as the Clinton Foundation, maintained that his client was only indicted “for working while Muslim.”

The investigation has touched Democratic leaders including Wasserman Schultz, who has been accused of protecting Awan. She stuck by her close aide, despite being briefed several months ago by House administrators and security officials about his “suspicious activities” on the Hill, sources say.

Wasserman Schultz attempted to downplay his alleged conduct, saying he was “transferring data outside the secure network, which I think amounted to use of apps that the House didn’t find compliant with our security requirements.” Such transfers though, could be a serious, potentially illegal, violation.

SEE ALSO

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a threat to national security

The US Attorney’s Office in Washington has taken possession of a laptop issued to Awan from Wasserman Schultz’s office, according to the sources, and she has reportedly retained counsel.

Earlier this year, she badgered the Capitol Police chief to return the laptop to her, even threatening him with “consequences.”

The congresswoman could not be reached for comment, but she recently told a local paper that scrutiny of her Muslim aide was motivated by “racial and ethnic profiling.”

Awan had access to Wasserman Schultz’s e-mails at both Congress and the DNC, where he had been given the password to her iPad. After DNC e-mails and research files were stolen during the presidential election, Wasserman Schultz reportedly refused to turn over the server to the FBI and instead called in a private firm to investigate and ID the hackers. The firm blamed the Russian government, while admitting, “We don’t have hard evidence.” The corrupted DNC server, held in storage, still has not been examined by the FBI.

Wasserman Schultz denies the DNC turned down the FBI’s assistance or that her congressional or DNC e-mails were compromised by Awan.

“This whole investigation pivots off Debbie Wasserman Schultz,” the official said.

They Want You to ‘Punch a Nazi’: Enacting Violence Keeps You Distracted From the Real Issue

0

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

As America continues looking downward on the deliberate divide being pushed through the mainstream, the real villains are conducting business as usual.

A week after the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Virgina, another protest/counter protest is set to happen in Boston this Saturday. Boston law enforcement noted that they would shut down the “Free Speech Rally” at the first sign of trouble.

“If anyone gets out of control — at all — it will be shut down,” Mayor Marty Walsh said.

Hundreds of officers will be on the scene, both in uniform and undercover to attempt to keep the peace. However, if the countless other similar rallies are any indication, peace will be all but non-existent.

Make no mistake, the White-nationalists, neo-Nazis, Alt-righters, whatever you want to call them, want to be attacked.

Why would anyone want to get punched in the face, you ask? Well, it is quite simple. When violence is enacted against the white supremacists, it flips the script and they become the martyrs or victims.

Before videos emerged of white-supremacists being attacked, no one paid any attention to them. Their ideas are so horrifically stupid that they are self-defeating. However, when you punch a nazi you legitimize them. While it doesn’t legitimize their cause, it makes them victims and therefore garners more support.

There is absolutely no chance of an outspoken, swastika toting white supremacist, hell bent on a 2nd Holocaust, taking over the country and locking you up. This is why battling white supremacists is futile. There is, however, a very real system of oppression on the rise in this country that does oppress minorities, kidnaps them, cages them, and also kills them on a large scale. It was here far before Trump too.

Why aren’t these counter-protesters who show up to all these white nationalist marches out there every day trying to end the real white nationalist problem? This problem began way before Trump, Obama, or Bush, and has been perpetuated by all Presidents since Nixon. Shortly after the Jim Crow era came to an end, under the guise of ‘protecting citizens from drugs’, a new Jim Crow was ushered in. The drug war.

Rohrabacher Cites Ex-Intel VIPS Report In Denouncing Russian Hacking

0

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

Republican Congressman Rep. Rohrabacher released a statement earlier this month which indicated he had drawn congress’s attention to a Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) report. The VIPS memorandum, which was addressed to President Trump, stated that the DNC was most likely had not been hacked, by Russia or anyone else. The report, signed by respected intelligence leaders such as former NSA technical director William Binney, veteran CIA analyst Ray McGovern and John Kiriakou among others, cited analysis of the Guccifer 2.0 metadata which had been conducted by an anonymous source known as the Forensicator.

The VIPS report also cites Disobedient Media‘s article on the Forensicator’s analysis. Disobedient Media was the first media outlet to report on the Forensicator‘s groundbreaking findings. Their analysis suggested that the data published by Guccifer 2.0 as the NGP-VAN files had been locally copied on the east coast of the U.S., most likely with direct access to a computer which had access to the DNC information.

The metadata of these particular files are significant to the Russian hacking narrative because Guccifer 2.0 had claimed responsibility for the DNC ‘hack,’ while claiming to have been based in Romania. Guccifer 2.0 is still being cited by legacy media as the ‘hacker’ of the DNC. This would be utterly invalidated if the Forensicator’s findings are proven to be correct.

The statement published by Rohrabacher earlier in August related that VIPS’ findings, which were sparked by the Forensicator’s analysis, destroys the credibility of the charges that Russia hacked the DNC system. Rohrabacher’s statement also expressed that the VIPS findings invalidated claims that Russia impacted the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Rohrabacher chairs the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats.

His statement reads in part: “These bogus charges have done great damage to our ability to work with Russia and have distracted the American people from the real threat of radical Islamic terrorism. This phony campaign has been used to disrupt the right of our new president to accomplish his goals and set the policies approved by the American voters.”Rohrabacher has distributed the report to his colleagues.

Rohrabacher made headlines recently after a three hour meeting with Julian Assange, after which the congressman claimed that Assange had confirmed the Russian hacking narrative is false. Rohrabacher also claimed that Assange had indicated he might reveal this proof to the public. However, Julian Assangequickly clarified via Twitter that he does not make statements through third parties and that only official statements made by him directly or through his lawyers should be considered authoritative.

The LA Times and other media reports following the meeting related that Assange could potentially be pardoned as a result of these latest events. Rohrabacher has said that he will speak with President Trump before going public with any information that might be revealed. It comes as no surprise to this author that soon after Rohrabacher’s meeting with Assange, The Washington Post reported calls had been made for investigation into  Rohrabacher’s relationship with Russia.

This latest news may prove to be of huge significance not only in potentially dismissing a scandal which saw a dramatic increase in tension between two nuclear states, but also in refocusing public attention towards the serious corruption in the DNC that emerged in the substance of the DNC emails. The DNC’s reaction to their publication may also come under increasing scrutiny if ‘Russian hacking’ claims are dismissed.
