Deep State begins its campaign to associate Harvey Weinstein’s sexual crimes to POTUS Trump

0

by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

Summer Zervos’ lawyers requested “all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.”

Never letting a good scandal go to waste, the Deep State is using the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal to push for a Trump impeachment.

After Hillary Clinton blew her dog whistle last week trying to connect Trump to Weinstein’s decades of sexual abuse (forgetting her hubby Bill’s very own rapist past), the Deep State has sprung into action to begin the campaign to lump POTUS Trump into the “sexual predator” bucket with Weinstein, Bill Clinton and all of hollywood.

The one difference is while liberal elites get a free pass for their sexual abuse (because while their actions were disgusting, their heart was in the right place), conservatives receive no such courtesy.

The lawyers of Summer Zervos, who accused then-presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, have reportedly requested all documents concerning “any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.”

They subpoenaed his campaign  for all documents related to the claims, local media reported Monday.

In October 2016, Apprentice TV show contestant Summer Zervos claimed at a press conference that Trump forcibly kissed and inappropriately touched her during a visit to his New York office in 2007. Trump refuted all the allegations. In January 2017, Zervos filed a lawsuit against Trump in the New York State Supreme Court.

According to the CNN broadcaster, Zervos’ lawyers requested all the documents related to her, as well as all communications with her and about her, and “all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” The broadcaster noted that the subpoena was issued in March, but it has been revealed recently.

Trump’s attorneys have until October 31. The White House has not commented on the issue yet.

NYC Officials Won’t Say What These Mystery Towers Are For

0

by Aaron Dykes, Truthstream Media:

Nor, will they say what data they are collecting on everyone who crosses into or out of the big city. With these towers, privacy doesn’t exist… is that the big secret?

According to CBS2 in New York, facial recognition software may have been installed into new pylon towers, along with advanced cameras and radiation detectors, equipment used to track toll charges and all vehicles crossing bridges or tunnels in New York.

These features are evident, but not confirmed, by the Metropolitan Transportation Agency in New York, in large part due to the murky relationship with Homeland Security, who considers it a major security installation:

Mysterious metal towers are popping up at local tunnels, and soon they’ll start appearing at bridges, too.

But even people on the MTA board in charge of the towers can’t say why they’re being used or what’s in them, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reports.

[…]

“We don’t really know what’s the purpose of this,” he told Carlin.

It’s a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy, with 18 of them for tunnels and bridges. So what are they exactly?
[…]

Lhota: “The base of these new pieces that are going up include whatever fiber optics are necessary for those Homeland Security items.”

In other words, anti-terror technology. Could that one day include facial recognition? We don’t know and Lhota won’t say.

“I’m not at liberty to discuss that,” he told Carlin.

Pharmacist who shuttles carloads of pharma drugs to Congress admits they’re senile, brain-damaged patients who “might not even remember what happened yesterday”

0

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

Many of the nation’s top lawmakers appear to be pharmaceutical drug addicts who rely on a steady stream of pharma pills being covertly shipped into them daily at Capitol Hill via a local pharmacy in D.C. known as Grubb’s. It’s a quaint little place that a recent article published by STATNews.com featured in an almost sentimental light, while also admitting that many members of Congress who utilize its services likely “aren’t all there” in terms of their brain function.

Mike Kim, the head pharmacist and owner of Grubb’s, should know; he’s the one who’s responsible for filling prescriptions for members of Congress. And he says that what he sees are plenty of prescriptions for things like diabetes and circulation issues, as well as for more serious conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This, he says, is somewhat concerning because it calls into question whether or not the people crafting our country’s laws are cognitively fit to be making such important decisions.

“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday,’” Kim reportedly told STATNews.com.

Grubb’s has apparently been involved in legally trafficking pharmaceuticals to and from the Capitol building on a daily basis since at least 1997. It operates through the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP), which basically functions as the personal physician for members of Congress. The OAP is secretive in its dealings – and understandably so, seeing as how the personal medical affairs of members of Congress should remain private, just as they do for every other American.

But where the concern lies is with the ease of access that Congress has to drugs in general, not to mention the ones that are used to treat cognitive decline. Not only does Congress get to cut to the front of the line, so to speak, when it comes to accessing drugs at Grubb’s but it also gets them hand delivered – oftentimes to the tune of 800 prescriptions per day.

“Nearly every day for at least two decades pharmaceutical drugs have been brought by the carload to the Capitol – an arrangement so under the radar that even pharmacy lobbyists who regularly pitch Congress on their industry aren’t aware of it,” writes Erin Mershon for STATNews.com.

“The deliveries arrive at the secretive Office of the Attending Physician, an elaborate medical clinic where Navy doctors triage medical emergencies and provide basic health care for lawmakers who pay an annual fee of just over $600. Every one comes from Washington’s oldest community pharmacy, Grubb’s.”

John McCain: Grubb’s has ‘injured me on several occasions’

While it can’t be said with certainty which members of Congress are taking Alzheimer’s drugs, there are clues for those with eyes to see. During her failed bid for the presidency, Hillary Clinton, for instance, showed signs of possible brain abnormalities, spiraling into strange bouts of head bobbing and eye movements that point to brain damage. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has similarly displayed strange behaviors while giving speeches that suggest she might have a form of dementia.

British Reporter Calls Out Hillary On Her BS: ‘So You’re Still Blaming Others More Than Yourself?’ (VIDEO)

0

by Joshua Caplan, The Gateway Pundit:

In a tense Friday interview, UK reporter Matt Frei asked failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton if she still believed others were more responsible for her election loss than she was.

In typical Clinton fashion, she gave a wishy-washy answer — refusing to flat out say “yes” or “no.”

No US reporter would have the guts to tell off Hillary Clinton like this.

How surprising.

From Washington Free Beacon:

Frei asked about her appeal to the voter during the 2016 presidential election, saying that her status as a Clinton prevented her gender from helping her.

“Your dynastic appeal or perhaps it was the opposite: The fact that you were called Clinton the fact that you were first lady basically trumped any novelty—if you forgive the term—of being the first female president of the United States,” he said. “People looked at your name and your legacy more than they looked at your gender.”

[…]

“So you’re still blaming others more than yourself?” Frei asked

“No, I take ultimate responsibility, I don’t blame others, but I think it’s important that people understand what happened,” Clinton said. “It easy to say, ‘You know she wasn’t a good candidate.’ Then why did lead all the way to the end, why did I get nominated overwhelmingly?”

Hillary did her best to sound disgusted and surprised over the news of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual harassment and assault in a BBC interview with Andrew Marr.

Hillary Clinton was then confronted about her husband Bill Clinton’s past sexual abuse after she called Trump a “sexual assaulter”.

Hillary was referring to the Billy Bush “Access Hollywood” tape of Trump from over 10 years ago in which he made disparaging comments towards women. Trump even apologized for his “locker room talk” but has never admitted to sexual assault.

“This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics. After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office,” Hillary said.

Andrew Marr responded by pointing out Hillary has dismissed allegations made by several women against her OWN HUSBAND, Bill Clinton. When asked if it was the right thing to do to dismiss the women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, she replied, “YES”.

“Yes because that has all been litigated,” Hillary arrogantly replied. “That was subject of a huge investigation in the late ’90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past.”

Public should be asking FBI Las Vegas Division Director Aaron Rouse WHAT HAPPENED?

by Judi MacLeod, Canada Free Press:

Blame that nagging ‘hinky’ feeling that something’s not right about the information to date on the Las Vegas massacre that cost 58 country and western fans their lives , leaving more than 500 injured on FBI Las Vegas Division Director Aaron Rouse.

It was on Rouse’s watch that the worst mass murder in America’s history went down.  It is on Ruse’s watch that authorities have found no motive some 10 days later.

Blame Rouse , too for the shooter’s Nevada house having been left open for burglary over the weekend.  Blame Rouse because he is the highest ranking FBI agent in charge of Las Vegas.

“The Las Vegas shooter’s Reno home was broken into over the weekend, causing another round of police activity in the normally quiet Del Webb neighborhood, police confirmed Tuesday. (Reno Gazette-Journal, Oct.10, 2017)

“Reno’s Somersett neighborhood has been in the spotlight since Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort onto the crowd of concertgoers below, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds before killing himself. Paddock, 64, purchased the small tan and brown home on Del Webb Parkway in 2013 and lived there with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

“Officer Tim Broadway with the Reno Police Department said the suspect or suspects broke into the home through the front door over the weekend, noting he was not sure how exactly the suspects gained entry.”

The Del Webb Parkway home was in the spotlight, yet had no police presence against invaders?

When is the last time a house at the center of a horrific crime, now key evidence,  has been left open for intrusion?

They jimmied the lock or kicked in the door, but the prime question should be did the suspect or suspects carry anything away?

Aaron Rouse was named special agent in charge of the Las Vegas Division by FBI Director James B. Comey on July 28, 2016:

“FBI Director James B. Comey has named Aaron Rouse as the special agent in charge of the Las Vegas Division. Mr. Rouse most recently served as section chief in the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ).

“Mr. Rouse entered on duty with the FBI in 1996 and was first assigned to the Washington Field Office, where he worked violent crime and was on the Joint Fugitive Task Force.

“Throughout his career, Mr. Rouse has held leadership positions in the Tampa Division, the San Antonio Division, and the Counterintelligence Division at FBIHQ.
Mr. Rouse will assume this new role in September.”

“In July 2002, Mr. Rouse was chosen to join the expanding National Security Branch at WFO and worked the asymmetric threat posed by a top tier threat country. (SALT Conference)

Judicial Watch: FBI Finds More Docs On Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting; Needs 6 Weeks To Turn Them Over

0

from ZeroHedge:

Back on June 29, 2016, Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to convince us that the following ‘impromptu’ meeting between herself and Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport, a private meeting which lasted 30 minutes on Lynch’s private plane, was mostly a “social meeting” in which Bill talked about his grandchildren and golf game.  It was not, under any circumstances, related to the statement that former FBI Director James Comey made just 6 days later clearing Hillary Clinton of any alleged crimes related to his agency’s investigation.

Not surprisingly, following the above media clip several concerned watchdog groups filed FOIA requests seeking any and all DOJ and/or FBI documents related to what was either (i) a really poorly timed meeting, in the best case, or (ii) a clear attempt by a former President of the United States to apply leverage over the current Attorney General to obstruct justice and get his wife elected President, in the worst case. 

Now, after originally being told by the FBI there were no documents to produce in response to their July 2016 FOIA request, Judicial Watch is now reported that nearly a year and a half later they’ve suddenly found some documents that may be relevant.  Meanwhile, as if that isn’t bad enough, the FBI apparently needs 6 weeks to produce a measly 30 pages worth of records.  Here’s more from Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch was informed yesterday by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) that the FBI has located 30 pages of documents related to the June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, and proposes non-exempt material be produced no later than November 30, 2017 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:16-cv-02046)).

The new documents are being sent to Judicial Watch in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to comply with a July 7, 2016, FOIA request seeking the following:

  • All FD-302 forms prepared pursuant to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure.
  • All records of communications between any agent, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding, concerning, or related to the aforementioned investigation. This request includes, but is not limited to, any related communications with any official, employee, or representative of the Department of Justice, the Executive Office of the President, the Democratic National Committee, and/or the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
  • All records related to the meeting between Attorney General Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016.

Expressing the frustration that this revelation likely invokes for many Americans, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton described the FBI as “out of control” and said it’s “stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit.”

Trump, the Chaos President, Adds Cruelty to His Brand

0

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

Donald Trump, the President of the United States, who took his companies through bankruptcy six times, picked the three-week anniversary of Hurricane Maria delivering an epic humanitarian crisis to Puerto Rico to shame the U.S. territory for its financial troubles and to traumatize the struggling residents by suggesting he may yank Federal workers from Puerto Rico.

The President, whose key job is to rally people in the time of crisis, posted the following, insanely cruel Tweet yesterday to a region where 84 percent of the residents still lack electrical power; one-third lack clean running water; and only 8 percent of the roads are passable according to government statistics: “We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!” Trump posted to his Twitter page. That post came shortly after Trump retweeted a statement suggesting that Puerto Rico’s “financial crisis looms largely from their own making.”

The three-week time frame for Trump’s patience to be running out in the midst of a humanitarian crisis contrasts with the three-year time frame, from 2007 to 2010, in which the Federal government’s patience and money were lavished on Wall Street to the tune of $16 trillion. Wall Street’s crisis was not the product of Mother Nature but a thundering herd of greed-obsessed banksters hell bent on looting the investing public and the public purse. (See Puerto Rico Relief Efforts Pale to that for Just One Wall Street Bank.)

Trump’s most recent tone deaf remarks on Puerto Rico follow those he made while visiting the Island on October 3, when he said the situation in Puerto Rico isn’t “a real catastrophe” like that of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and actually blamed Puerto Rico for “throwing our budget a little out of whack.”

Just two weeks after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 155 miles per hour, President Trump Tweeted that “They want everything to be done for them…” while lavishing praise on “10,000 Federal workers” who he said are “doing a fantastic job.”

As a territory of the United States, Puerto Ricans are citizens of the United States and entitled to humanitarian aid. According to statistics published in the Los Angeles Times, based on U.S. Department of Defense statistics, over 95,000 Puerto Ricans have served in the U.S. military while 1,225 have given their lives in combat for the United States.

President Trump’s cruel and cold-hearted remarks toward Puerto Rico stand in contrast to his Tweets regarding hurricane damage in Texas and Louisiana. In a Tweet on August 30, Trump reassured the residents of those two states that “We are w/ you today, we are w/ you tomorrow, & we will be w/ you EVERY SINGLE DAY AFTER, to restore, recover & REBUILD!”

Both Texas and Louisiana went for Trump in the 2016 Presidential election. Residents of Puerto Rico, a territory not a state, cannot vote in U.S. elections.

FROM “FAKE NEWS” TO “FAKE ECONOMICS”: NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE REWARDS A FAKER

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouchePAC, via SGT Report:

In the last year, since the Brexit vote in the U.K. and the election of Donald Trump in the U.S., there has been a growing awareness that the population in the Trans-Atlantic world is being subjected to a dangerous phenomenon known as “Fake News.”  The distrust of all elites, including those who determine what is covered in newspapers and by the talking heads on television, is part of the dynamic of insurgency which is sweeping the west, and is manifest in the anti-establishment voting patterns, which are overturning “politics-as-usual.”  

Media censorship and outright lying as a means of social control are not new tactics, as there is a long history of oligarchs using control of media and education to keep people ignorant of the events and processes which shape their lives, making it easier to control them.  The British Empire has survived by employing such measures.  The ability to sustain authoritarian control over a subject population is the subject of George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” published in 1949, in which people at mass rallies were led in chants such as “Ignorance is Strength.”  One of the maxims of the fictional government imagined by Orwell was “He who controls the past controls the future.  He who controls the present controls the past.”  This is a slogan which describes well the intent behind the proliferation of Fake News today.

This was the subject of a tract published in 1953 by Bertrand Russell, the evil proponent of the British Empire.  Lord Russell wrote, “Education should aim at destroying free will so that pupils thus schooled will be incapable…of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished….It is for a future scientist…to discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black” (from “The Impact of Science on Society”).   

One arena of “Fake News” is the coverage in the mainstream media of economic and financial “news.”  For the propagandists of “neo-liberalism”, who dominate the media and the economics profession, stock market and other bubbles represent economic growth; credit for infrastructure investment is axiomatically condemned as “wasteful spending”; free trade enforced by a banker’s dictatorship maximizes everyone’s freedom; and austerity is the path to prosperity.  It is from such precincts that the people are being told that President Obama is responsible for a “robust recovery” from the Crash of 2008, while ignoring the buildup of new bubbles, including levels of debt and leverage which far exceed that which triggered the 2008 crash.

Lord Russell would no doubt be quite pleased that the repetition of such nonsense dominates the field of economics today.  For today’s respected economists, snow has indeed become black!

WHAT IS “NUDGE” THEORY

It is therefore not surprising that this year’s Nobel Prize for Economics was given to Richard Thaler, a “behavioral economist” and leading promoter of Sophistical Tomfoolery known as “nudge theory.”  In 2008, Thaler published “Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness,” which was co-authored by his colleague at the University of Chicago, Cass Sunstein.  The University of Chicago’s Economics Department was founded as an outpost of British free trade, specifically to organize opposition to the protectionist policies of American System President William McKinley.  In announcing the award, the Nobel Committee said Thaler’s work “has built a bridge between the economic and psychological analyses of individual decision making,” which has provided a “more realistic analysis of how people think and behave when making economic decisions.”

Their work was inspired by that of two Israeli behavioral psychologists, Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky.  Kahneman was awarded the Nobel Economics Prize in 2002.  Tversky and Kahneman argued that human beings are not just occasionally irrational, but systemically irrational! 

Thaler and Sunstein define a “nudge” as “any aspect of the choice architecture that alters people’s behavior in a predictable way without forbidding any options or significantly changing their economic incentives.”  It is based on the belief that positive reinforcement and indirect suggestions, in the form of a “prompt”, can alter behavior, to bring people into compliance with policy goals without the use of force.  A “nudge” in the right direction is necessary, they believe, because people are inherently irrational, and allow “gut instincts” to supplant rational choices.  After the announcement of his being awarded the Nobel prize, Thaler identified the vote for Brexit as an example of this problem, describing it as an “irrational” action, that is, against the self-interest of residents of the United Kingdom. 

Another example of irrationality given by Thaler is that of people who spend for consumption, rather than saving.  In Thaler’s world, people must be wealthy enough to be able to make a choice, and need only a gentle push to convince them to do so.  In reality, according to a study reported on CNN in January 2017, nearly 60{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of Americans could not cover an unplanned expense of $500.  They do not save NOT due to inherent irrationality, but because they do not earn enough to cover their minimal costs, and must use credit cards to pay for basic expenses, often being forced to choose between buying food, or paying for medical care.

There are now more than seventy-five governments which have established “nudge units” to shift the economic behavior of their citizens.  Among the most prominent is the agency set up by former British

Prime Minister Cameron, for which Thaler personally served as an adviser.  U.S. President Obama brought in Sunstein to administer a “Behavioral Insights Team”.  One of his tasks was to overcome the resistance of Americans to the insurance swindle and medical triage program known as “Obamacare”.  Sunstein, who ran the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs from 2009 to 2012, is described by many who know his relationship with Obama as one of the former President’s “controllers,” while his wife, Samantha Power, was a leading proponent of regime change wars when she was Obama’s Ambassador to the United Nations.  It should be noted that such wars, including that which overthrew the Qadaffi government of Libya and that targeting the Assad government, which plunged Syria into a brutal, murderous civil war in which the U.S. was on the side of terrorists, are hardly examples of “nudges” to attain a desired goal. 

If the reader is beginning to get the idea that “nudge theory” is more a euphemism for psychological manipulation and social engineering than a scientific concept, then perhaps more forceful nudging is required! 

THE UNDERLYING FRAUD OF NUDGE THEORY

A memo written by EIR economics editor Paul Gallagher on October 10 exposes “nudge theory” as a reaction to the fraudulent theory which preceded it, Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), or “rational market theory”, which was discredited by the series of bubbles which popped in 1987, from 1998 to 2000, and again with the crash of the housing bubble in 2008.  EMH theory argues that the price of a financial asset fully reflects all available information, and is, therefore, based on an entirely rational evaluation.  This goes back to Austrian school economist, Friedrich von Hayek, who said markets are the the most effective way of aggregating pieces of information, to determine value.  But if EMH were a valid hypothesis, there would never be bubbles! 

Thaler argues correctly that bubbles occur when buyers operate on market sentiment, and respond to upticks in stock or other asset valuations, such as mortgage-backed securities, by irrationally rushing in to buy, in order to not miss out on a chance to make money.  He describes this as a “herd mentality”, when the irrational desire for quick profits prevents investors from looking at the underlying value of what they are buying — thus the problem, once denied by EMH enthusiast and former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, of “irrational exuberance.”  Greenspan was such a devout adherent to this theory that he described himself in testimony to Congress, after the Crash of 2008, as being “in a state of shocked disbelief”, when in reality that crash was the result of his full support of neo-liberal policies, such as repeal of Glass Steagall bank separation, and unregulated trading of financial instruments such as derivatives.

But Thaler’s rejection of EMH theory, which was actually discredited by the popping of the bubbles, is hardly rocket science!  As Gallagher points out, the fraud of the nudge theory is that it accepts the same underlying axioms as the apostles of EMH, that an economy is about money, about buying and selling, about the valuation of monetary instruments, such as stocks and bonds.  The solution to this problem is not having “nudgers,” that is, behavioral economists who believe they are rational and therefore superior to the irrational investors, to prompt them to behave rationally, but a return to what American economist Lyndon LaRouche calls the science of “physical economy.”  LaRouche’s unique work in economics begins with the physical science behind economic value, as pioneered by Gottfried Leibniz in the 17th century, and by Alexander Hamilton’s invention of the American System in the 18th century.

The driving force of an economy, LaRouche argues, is not pursuit of profit, but the application of human creativity to increase the productivity of labor, funded through a national credit policy.  This is how real value is added to an economy.  It is through the increase of labor productivity, aided by applications of new technologies and creation of new platforms of infrastructure, that an economy develops.

There is no mention in Thaler’s work, of how a real economy works, of how wealth is produced.  As LaRouche has said, the awarding of a Nobel Prize in economics is proof of the insanity of the idea being promoted by the awards committee. As Gallagher has quipped, LaRouche’s lifelong effort to rescue economics from the blathering of the Fake Economists has earned him a “well-earned freedom from consideration by the igNoble Prize Committee.”
