Russian Collusion and Us

Let’s just work from the premise that we were given at the beginning. The Russia investigation was a counter-intelligence operation since collusion is not a crime and since there was no evidence of any such thing at that time. However, the argument went (and still does), that we must get to the bottom of Russian involvement in our election because it threatens the very foundation of American democracy. I am sick and tired of the liberal media and the establishment never-Trump Republicans still standing behind this and regurgitating these old, overused and nonsensical talking points.

Our law enforcement agencies operate differently from those that have been set up in police states. I do not believe most people understand the enormous fundamental constraints that even our intelligence agencies in the U.S. have when dealing with constitutionally protected citizens. American law enforcement in all of its manifestations, has never been allowed to take a complaint about a person (that they are bad or crazy or mean in generality) and then go search for a crime. If that were done, we would be a police state. To quote a former secret service agent whose podcasts I frequently enjoy,”The FBI can indict a ham sandwich if they want to.” Mr. Bongino is absolutely correct. Make no mistake, if an intelligence or police agency is armed with detailed information on your every move for the last five years and then you sit down while their trained interviewers/interrogators rapid fire questions on every date and everything you did (even things that held little or no importance for you and thus are totally forgotten), it is almost impossible NOT to have inconsistencies  or alterations and therefor a charge of “lying to law enforcement”. This is why the Special Prosecutor, the FBI, police, Intelligence agencies, all of law enforcement prosecute crimes but they do not prosecute people! Why are we making an exception in the way the FBI is looking for a crime committed by President Trump? Are we comfortable with police state policies?

Furthermore, at a time when our deficit is larger than ever. Our debt is greater than we can wrap our brains around. This is an astronomical problem of criminal proportions. We have a Special Prosecutor who is off the rails. His budget is eating up money without producing the results that the mission goals stated. Lying to the FBI is not remotely proof of any sort of guilt of the non-statutory un-crime of collusion. Every unveiling has revealed wrongdoing by the Democratic Party, not the Trump campaign. Digging into the past just digs up the crimes of the Obama Administration in association with the Clinton campaign. And we just keep throwing good money at Mueller to search for some Russian connection with our president! Is anyone looking at China? Could we please take that money and redistribute it to counter those countries that are successfully making inroads into our entertainment industry, economy and manufacturing….not to mention intellectual property Etc!!

If the Democrats were truthfully as concerned with Russian meddling in our elections as they say they are, they would be taking action instead of trying to dig up something on President Trump. Why are we not doing more to protect the election systems in the states. Obama tried to take control by placing control of elections in the hands of the Federal Government which would put each state at higher risk. We should be actively working to limit ALL INTERFERENCE in our elections and both law enforcement and Congress could be making better use of time! There is more, much more that could be done. There is much more that could be done if the Democrats were not spending all of their time strategizing and plotting how to take down the legally elected president while taking and keeping power. Many more problems could be solved if establishment Republicans were not constantly voting with the highest paying lobbyist and never willing or able to stand up and fight for the people.

Bob Mueller is spending money we do not have and after almost two years with no evidence of Russian collusion, we need to move on and stop wasting money. There are other crimes that do have evidence that are just sitting out there while the respective statutes of limitation slowly run out.

Come, Let Us Reason Together..


Everyone has gotten so caught up in the minutiae of political correctness, the blood sport of team politics and an unbelievable and unshakable conviction that we are a permanently established society that can not be seriously threatened beyond our ability to neutralize or eliminate – do people no longer think for themselves? Even when shocking and terribly obvious horrible actions are brought to the public’s attention, citizens immediately run to their party talking points. 

In my opinion, the most serious, the most dangerous, the most foolish and apparently also the most criminal action to date which “We, the people” are being subtly told is not that much of an issue is the Uranium 1 Deal. Putting all extraneous considerations aside, this is NOT a partisan issue and will have an equal impact on every American regardless of economic situation, racial classification, job description, age or religious affiliation. This is a classic example of dressing up a wolf in sheep’s clothing and watching most of the public following the media who are rushing down the path to herd the sheep!

The last administration set up, co-ordinated and facilitated selling possession, command and control of 20% (1/5) of America’s uranium (an extremely valuable radioactive metal used to produce nuclear weapons) to one of our greatest enemies – Russia! Think about it again. Our leaders profited by selling the ore for nuclear bombs to Russia and gave them control of 1/5 of the total uranium production. Russia also was able to ship some of it out after processing which required some level of government arrangement…Russia had slipped it through our protections and border controls.

Rome would never have sold swords to the Visigoths or the Gauls! Barbarians would not have been allowed to control 1/5 of the sword production or chariot manufacturing in the Roman Empire. Common sense dictates that internal politics have to take a backseat to external threats! I have not heard that Washington offered to sell the English ammunition before or during the Revolutionary War, after all both countries were popularly using the “Bessie Musket”, even in the military. We did not trade weapons or ammo which could be used on citizens or soldiers. We were walking around with common sense and our leaders were Patriots and leaders. They would never have even considered such a thing! What happened?

Before uranium is processed into the final explosive, destructive and most evil weapon on this planet it is processed and handled in a form called “yellow cake”. If we still had some of that common sense our parents walked around with everyone would have expected that an exit path for the purchased uranium would be arranged also, and it was. “Yellow cake” has been cleverly slipped through our protections and borders into the physical clutches of Russia and Vlad Putin. We do not know where it went.

One of our enemies who actively works against us both inside and out of our borders, who has repeatedly tried to interfere with our Republic and its functioning, who does not respect the sovereignty of any other nation, who does not even treat his own citizens in a moral way now has control of a good portion of the American resource required to build a nuclear bomb. He has stolen away some of it already. 

If we do not investigate this, unravel it, set Justice on the right course and then clean out every person and process that allowed this travesty to occur, our serious incidents will become exponentially worse and more frequent. Only by shining light on the dealings of the former administration will we be able to sift out the deep state working against the Executive and the Legislative branches.

Are we going to keep trying to persecute a properly elected president, following a melodramatic media that keeps promising impeachable evidence around the next bend (9 months and still waiting while they are still frantically looking)? Perhaps we should focus on policies, problems and coming together on common ground before our divisions break this nation apart

Media? What Media?

Posted on

By what right or measure does “the media” claim its current self endowed titled of The Free Press? They are in no way free as they are well known to be employed by large corporations who support globalism and are in bed with the Democratic Party. Just to be clear, it would be equally as bad if they were controlled or manipulated by the Republican Party, especially if the Republicans were advocating anti-American policies and working to fundamentally change or make obsolete substantial portions of our Constitution. They have become so obvious about their prejudices that they are even selective about what news items they will actually report! When the media is driving the news and manipulating the dialogue for the entire nation, elevating gossip and hearsay over facts, policies and agendas then things have just gone too far!

Where was this “media” when Obama’s administration was caught up in “fast and furious”? Why were there no continuous interviews targeting the administration for gun running? Why was there no outrage from the press when a border agent was murdered and then later when those guns began surfacing in the US? Why was the press not shocked? Why was there no rumor of an independent prosecutor or an investigative committee?  http://www.nationalreview.com/article/430153/fast-furious-obama-first-scandal          http://www.latimes.com/nation/atf-fast-furious-sg-storygallery.html

Where was “the media” criticism when Obama started bringing in members of the Muslim Brotherhood to work in the White House? Why were there no questions when an enemy organization was allowed to rewrite and revise the procedures and training practices of the military, the FBI, the CIA and those are just the ones we know about! The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization and supports the jihad movement and its activities. Why was there no media coverage of this? Why wasn’t this critical and important information on every front page in America?             http://freebeacon.com/national-security/fbi-national-domestic-threat-assessment-omits-islamist-terrorism/            http://www.wnd.com/2015/02/expert-fbi-neutered-by-muslim-brotherhood/                                     https://counterjihadreport.com/tag/fbi-document-purge/

Why did “the media” cover up for Comey when he made his announcement about Hillary Clinton and the email investigation. He obviously, plainly and clearly deliberately lied about what the statute (18 USC section 793) required. Do you have to be a democrat to tell a bald faced lie on national TV and suffer no consequences? Where was “the media’s” reference to the actual statute? Why did not one reporter check to see if intent was a requirement at all? (Intent is not a requirement, it is deliberately not a requirement) Where were the talk show demands for accountability? How could the exposure of our nation’s secrets be disregarded and unpunished? Where was “the media”?

Why did Obama surveil so many Americans? How many did he collect information on? Why is “the media” talking about White House gossip and attacks on President Trump instead of this? Why did Obama sign that Executive Order right before he left office promoting more sharing of information between intelligence agencies when it allegedly only encourages leaks? Why has there been no editorial questioning this? Where is “the media” on such a topic of true concern, is our government spying on us? Are the intelligence services out of control? Without a decent investigative press we may never know.                                                                                                                                                http://planetfreewill.com/2017/05/28/new-revelations-shed-light-extent-nsa-spying-obama/   http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-24/fisa-court-finds-very-serious-fourth-amendment-issue-obamas-widespread-illegal-search                                               http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/03/ask_james_rosen_and_angela_merkel_about_obama_spying.html

There are other issues that I think should have been brought into the light also. We never did find out the particulars about Benghazi and no one was held accountable. The shameful use of the IRS to handicap conservative organizations before an election was horrendous and once again, no one was held accountable. There are literally mountains of evidence against the Clintons and their foundation and the way they set the State Department up as a “pay for play” deal. That isn’t news? That isn’t important or shocking? It involved citizens, corporations and foreign governments, yet our press barely even gave it acknowledgement. Clinton’s Uranium deal should definitely be investigated. Yet there has been little coverage, not at the time it occurred and not now. Where is “the media”? If they are so afraid of every small interaction with Russia then Clinton’s facilitation of the sale of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to Russia should be the biggest story of the year!

So, we do not really have a legitimate mainstream media, we actually have a propaganda machine. As American citizens we can either be manipulated sheep or we can be intelligent consumers. I can not trust the networks or cable channels since they all push a liberal point of view. I have gone elsewhere…and, either way, I highly recommend fact checking!

Russia and Our Voters

I am including an article written by Logan Albright at Conservative Review. I have always believed that the politicians underestimate most voters. I know that the media does. Now the media is misrepresenting what Trump has said. I heard him say that he was absolutely behind an investigation into hacking as long as it covered all hacking. Chris Wallace didn’t emphasize that and the dems on his “panel” ignored it.

I understand that 17 intelligence agencies determined that Russia hacked the DNC as well as Podesta. They further concluded that the motivation for this was to get Trump elected. I believe they can accurately determine concrete facts but I have a problem with the politically appointed head of The CIA stating that they all agree on something as subjective as motive. For all we know, Russia would have supported anyone over Clinton. Maybe they didn’t want to pay millions into the Clinton Foundation. They knew her well from her four years as Secretary of State. I don’t think they thought much of her. But maybe it wasn’t about who was elected at all.

Mr. Albright has a beautiful point of view on this:

People are freaking out over the persistent allegations that Russian hackers “fixed” the election by leaking private emails to the public. While the extent of Russia’s involvement is not clear, and there are a number of conflicting accounts, the accusation itself gives a fairly clear insight into the Left’s view of the democratic process. Note that no one is accusing Russia of altering vote counts, of rigging voting machines to give the wrong result, or of publishing false information about Hillary Clinton. The accusation is that voters were exposed to true information about Clinton, and that this knowledge caused them not to vote for her.

This position is so fundamentally insulting I’m surprised it isn’t talked about more often.
Right there, the implication is that truth is bad, and that democracy would be better if it were easier to conceal facts from voters. We have to lie to people for their own good, because otherwise they might make bad decisions (like voting for Trump.) And here I thought a well-informed electorate was a necessary ingredient to a healthy democracy. But liberal outrage runs deeper than a simple condemnation of truth.

There is a belief among progressives — rarely made explicit but implied in many of their policy positions — that voters are not rational actors who decide the president based on their preferences, but are instead pawns who can pushed this way or that by political chess masters. From this perspective, the problem is not that people decided against voting for Clinton based on the information available, but rather that Russia made them vote for Clinton via its alleged actions. Choice never seems to be a concern.

This prevailing attitude among the Left is clear from their positions on campaign finance. If corporations are allowed to spend money on political advertisements, leftists argue, they will be able to “buy” elections. How does this work? Have you ever changed your mind about who to vote for because you saw a yard sign? I haven’t. No amount of advertising, phone calls, or search engine optimization can convince me to vote for someone who doesn’t share my principles and values. I suspect most of the critics of SuperPAC spending feel the same way. They could never be swayed by corporate money, but all the lowly peons — the average voters — apparently lack the same sort of insight, conviction, and indeed, free will.

This position is so fundamentally insulting I’m surprised it isn’t talked about more often. We are all human beings, with the freedom to select whichever candidate we choose. We can’t be bought, and we can’t be forced to vote for someone we dislike, certainly not by leaked emails or corporate-funded yard signs. To suggest otherwise is to deny our agency and our humanity.
People howling about the Russian hackers with claims that democracy has been compromised assume that voters had no choice to ignore the leaks and vote for Clinton anyway. But if your view of people is that they are mindless automata who can be manipulated into voting a particular way by ad buys and leaked truth, then democracy is beyond saving.

Rules or Manipulation for Radicals

Sol Alinsky wrote his famous Rules for Radicals in the early 1970’s trying to help those who would disrupt society. His well known rules are restated here for the edification and enjoyment of all who might need a quick reference:

RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)

RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule.)

These people are thieves and monsters. Why Clintons Must Be Prosecuted

This is a repost from one of my favorite blogs, RECLAIM OUR REPUBLIC. Justice should be equal for all and as we all believe, no one should be above the law!

Vicious Worrying Rumor

In the midst of all of this political back and forth, there is one particular item that I read today which actually frightened me and made me more afraid than ever of what will happen should Clinton become president.

There are levels of National Security classifications. Being a layman I am ignorant of all of the layers, I know there is Confidential (which is evidently a fairly low level), there is a Secret level and we all know about the Top Secret designation.

There is also a higher classification which is so secret that except for very few in the absolute highest echelons of government, the only people who know about each segment or unit of information are those with a proven need to know. This information relates to the most important of our national secrets, the most necessary, dangerous and risky of our spy projects where numerous lives are at stake, defense technology, etc. This highest classification is known as a special access program or SAP. Each SAP has an administrator who has the responsibility to administer that program. Just because you have been read into one SAP does not mean you will ever have access or even knowledge of any other SAP. Those who have been read into a SAP have to abide by rigid protocols including taking a polygraph yearly no matter who you are. The subject matter Is. That. Important.

So today when I read that the FBI was 99% certain that Hillary Clinton’s server, which was not as well protected as an ordinary gmail account, was hacked by five to seven foreign governments AND that she had information on not one but SEVEN SAPS on her server. This is no foolish mistake, this is no minor breach. This is skating alarmingly close to treason. How could a responsible adult in her position neglect to take every required precaution when lives are at stake and our national security is at risk? 

Hillary Clinton cannot be President. She does not take enough care with the secrets of our military or our government. Even worse, she cannot be president because she is loyal to self first, party second and maybe the American people last. We cannot have such a careless person as president. 

A Special Prosecutor should be appointed immediately. Government Corruption has never been more obvious!
