20-17 Almost Here – Good-bye “Age Of Fake”, Hello “Age Of Triumph – Age Of Greatness”

Update: “A watched pot never boils.” Next Friday at noon… so… slow… so… slow…



——————————————————————–

It’s not Happy New Year yet. But it is close. 20-17 is almost here.

Once 20-17 arrives the heavens open up with fire, music, joy, and achievement. Right now though, contrary to what superficial analysis declares, there’s not really much going on. We are in the preliminary stages, the preparatory stages. It’s an important time, akin to the early evening when you bathe and put on a tuxedo or evening gown, but the show only begins when the opera curtains go up and the music flows.

On 20-17 the curtain goes up and the music will flow.

Not much is going on. Yes, there are a bunch of posturing “hearings” in the United States Senate but that’s all a big bunch of nothing because the Trump nominees will be approved especially after their stellar, often calculatingly dull, appearances before our dimwitted senators.

There was that tinkling fun over the comic book attack on President-Elect Donald J. Trump we had so much fun with over at the comments section in our last article, but that has been so thoroughly refuted the fun with that is over. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, “it’s over for Trump” failed again and once again what didn’t kill Trump has made him stronger (especially against the “intelligence” community and the loathsome Big Media).

President-Elect Donald J. Trump did hold a triumphant press conference which scared Big Media and the loony left because so much truth was revealed. Back in 2008 we noted that Big Media is a political party, not a news dissemination enterprise. That observation has been proven true as we witness Big Media fake news dispensed like stay awake pills at an Obama speech. Trump stomped on CNN fake news dissemination and Big Media howled. It was fun and few now even recall that Obama tried to make news this week. But Obama is the past. We here at Big Pink are in gorgeous dressing gowns with long trains and Jackie Kennedy style long white gloves, or in Tuxedos, waiting for the curtain to rise.

So what is there is do until 20-17? We’ll soon be writing our last articles of the last age summarizing what we have since 2009 called “The Age Of Fake”. We hit it on the nail with that description didn’t we? Now everyone talks about “fake news” and fake this and fake that. Obama and Obama worship was the Age Of Fake but on 20-17 we will enter The Age of Triumph, the Age of Greatness“.

As the Age of Fake ends we kick out the door Barack Obama and his silly “Farewell Address” which rendered BuzzFeed to tears. We kid you not. Buzzfeed idiot employees and the official BuzzFeed account confessed the tears were flowing because, they wondered, if we Americans “deserve the Obamas as President and First Lady?” Go to the link. Observe the lunacy. The answer is we Americans did not deserve to be punished with the Obama’s but the corruption in our elites has been so massive for eight years we suffered.

The Age of Fake featured many instances of race-baiting. Often the story was that some poor innocent black person or persons (Muslims pulled the same lie repeatedly too) were attacked by some vicious KKK white organization and soon… after a police investigation to arrest the vicious white KKK organization of monsters… the culprit would be revealed to be a black person who either bombed the black church or posted the ugly leaflet, or sent the “racist” tweet. The Age of Fake ends with more fake “racism”:

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

Yeah, it was a 14-year old black girl that sent out the “racist” tweet from the “kkk” which threatened an “attack”. Age of Fake.

Fake “racism” and fake “racists” have been all the rage in the Age of Fake. If you’re a black person that rejects fake “racism” fake “racists” and the all too real race-baiting of Obama Dimocrats and Barack Obama himself, well you’re just a “house nigga”. That’s what happened to Senator Tim Scott.

Senator Tim Scott and other black people dared to defend and endorse soon to be the Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions. For that offense Senator Tim Scott, a black man, was called a “house nigga”. Senator Tim Scott’s response came with the wit and brevity we expect to be standard practice in the coming “Age of Triumph, Age of Greatness“:


That’s a way of saying “kiss my sweet black ass” Trump style.

Age of Triumph, Age of Greatness“. It begins. 20-17.

  1. In 1960 Frank Sinatra changed the lyrics of his hit song “High Hopes” to laud JFK.

    Now Paul Anka is writing new lyrics for his hit song “My Way” to sing at the Trump inaugural on 20-17:

    http://radaronline.com/videos/donald-trump-inauguration-paul-anka-perform/

    His Way! Inside Paul Anka’s Top-Secret Performance Plan For Trump Inauguration

    The music legend is re-writing the lyrics to an entire song.

    President Donald Trump did it his way — and Paul Anka will let him know it!

    A source close to the “(You’re) Having My Baby” crooner, 75, told Radar exclusively that he will buck the trend of most singers and perform his song “My Way” at the Inauguration January 20. . .with lyrics re-written for the incoming Commander-In-Chief!

    “Paul was asked by the members of the Trump inauguration committee and he was only too happy to do it for his longtime friend,” said an Anka insider.

  2. I don’t know the “legalities” of this…but wouldn’t it be interesting if Trump extradicted Julian Assange to the USA and then gave him aslymn of ‘pardoned him’ and then put him right to work on cyberspace security…

    he sure has the experience…and the contacts

    Your 2016 vs 2017 picture reminds me of when Dorothy opened the door and went from a B&W existence to color. Can’t wait!

  4. I just finished reading a summary of Mattis’s testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Commmittee.

    The thing that most impressed me was not the quality of his answers, but the utter stupidity of their questions.

    Instead of asking strategic questions, all those gas bags wanted from him was to know how he stood on their pet issues.

    Issues like gays in the military, the right of women to die in combat alongside men, and whether he agrees with McCain that after we bomb bomb bomb Iran, we take that traveling minstrel show to Moscow.

    These senators show me nothing, nada, zero.

    We need to think seriously about term limits.

    Knowing that these jamokes do not think of the welfare of the nation, but only in their own personal wealth, power and survival

    We cannot ask them to vote theselves out of a job, by applying term limits to them.

    Instead, we would impose it on any new senator who takes office after 2016.

    The incumbents would gladly sacrifice the unborn to ensure their own success, so they will snap up that deal like a pond full of snapping turtles.

    And then we can go turtle hunting.

  5. I can’t recall any other President in recent time where so many stations are running “legacy” tributes before he has even left office. It really shows you how biased the media has been for eight year.

  6. Obama loves giving and getting medals.

    Counselor, the evidence on that point is cumulative AND impeaching.

    Would you not agree?

  8. Bismark is reputed to have said”

    God protects fools, drunks and the United States of America.

    But that does not mean he protects the United States of American

    Against the depredations of a fool (Obama) and a drunk (Biden)

    We must find him wherever he is buried

    Dig him up and make him answer what has now become

    A rather urgent question.

  9. California’s new senator grilled CIA director nominee Mike Pompeo about climate change (as well as gay marriage), illustrating just how out of sync with reality Democrats’ priorities are when it comes to national security.

  10. Want more evidence of how fucking stupid these senators are?

    Okay, you asked for it, you got it, Toyata:

    In Tillerson’s interaction with Marco Rubio, the bright eyed bushy tailed novice senator who believed what he had the right stuff to be president, demanded to know whether Tillerson would join him in labeling Putin a war criminal. When Tillerson demurred, the bright eyed bushy tailed novice senator who believed he has the right stuff to be president, expressed grave doubts whether he could vote to confirm.

    Whether technically a war criminal or not, Putin is obviously one tough dude (or should I say “bad hombre”) and a worldwide problem. The question is how you deal with him. Obama pretty much rolled over for Vlad for his entire presidency, only waking up the last month or so when he made some heavily politicized theatrical gestures that, most of us know, were aimed more at wounding Trump than at Putin.

    But the pivotal question is, suppose you do as Rubio demands and call Putin a war criminal. WHERE TO YOU GO FROM THERE, EXCEPT TO WAR? In which case, calling him a war criminal may be just about the stupidest thing anyone can do—if they want to avoid war. Rubio is an asset controlled by the deep state, thus he is merely following orders.

  11. S, I don’t know a lot about the background of Assange, but I heard him say that fo wikileaks he doesn’t do the hacking, he just receives what others have hacked, he and his people verify it, and then they publish it.

    Now, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t hacked in the past and has the knowledge, so maybe he does have the knowledge to protect our cyber world….?

  12. Koran sung in Arabic at SCOTTISH church service contradicts Christian teaching about Jesus

    A post on the cathedral’s Facebook page said the service was a “wonderful event”.

    It added: “The congregation was also reminded during the service that it is not only Christians who give honour to Jesus. We were joined by friends from two local Muslim communities.”

    The event, which celebrates the Jesus as the Son of God, was criticised by retired Anglican Michael Nazir-Ali.

    The former Bishop of Rochester said: “The authorities of the Scottish Episcopal Church should immediately repudiate this ill-advised invitation.”

    He also called for Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to distance the Church of England and the wider Anglican communion from the event.

    He added: “Christians should know what their fellow citizens believe and this can include reading the Koran for themselves, whether in the original or in translation. This is not, however, the same thing as having it read in Church in the context of public worship.

  13. Admin:

    Today, my friend Harley Schlanger explains what is going on behind the curtain

    Specifically:

    The man big media refuses to name

    Who put together the disinformation hit piece on Trump

    Is named Chris Springer

    He was/is a member of British Intelligence

    He was hired to do this by the Bush campaign

    The Bush campaign planned to use it to defeat Trump in the primary

    When Jeb dropped out, it was given to the Clinton campaign

    Thereafter it was given to the intelligence services, i.e. NSA, CIA, FBI

    Those services circulated it in big media who were unable to verify it

    Consequently, except for the refused to publish it

    Except for the most trusted name in news, i.e. CNN/AOL/Time Warner

    The specific intent was to discredit and overthrow Trump

    On behalf of what Glen Greenwald and Harley both refer to as the deep state

    The motive for this action was two fold:

    1. to prevent Trump from HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE

    2. to prevent Trump from CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME

    Not surprisingly, Soros is implicated in this as well.

    See audio below, starting at 2:30 et seq.

    https://youtu.be/63mIfVjsCxM

  14. Correction: I misread my notes. The name of the guy was not Brian Springer but Chis Steele, who went to his Russian contacts and told them to dig up dirt on Trump.

    You should listen to it yourself and see if I made any other errors in the above summary, but other than that I believe it is accurate.

  15. I would encourage you to have your friends and family take time to read the links to these six articles.

    We are witnessing something unprecedented in the history of the United States.

    The CIA, at least some in its leadership, and others in the intelligence community are helping perpetrate a fraud on the American voters and try to persuade them that a foreign power intervened in our election and, without so boldly stating, leave the implication that Trump was elected because of Putin.

    It is a damned lie—-Larry Johnson, former CIA analyst

  16. Earlier, when I made the point that the big media beloved messiah is different things to different people

    I indicated that to Putin he is causus belli

    Upon reflection, I wish to revise and extend that remark as follows:

    When I was making the point that the big media beloved messiah, I stated that to Putin, he (Obama) is a causus belli.

    Upon reflection, I wish to advise and extend those remarks, as follows:

    To Putin, Obama is A MAN TO BE TRIFLED WITH.

    The choice of words here is important.

    John Quincy Adams maintained that the goal of every American President

    Should be to teach our adversaries something important, i.e.

    That we are NOT a nation to be trifled with . . . .

  17. The Queen was said to have rebuked Europhile Clegg, telling him the EU was heading in the wrong direction, with it claimed other guests “were left in no doubt about her views on Europe”.
    ————–
    Why in the HELL did she not say this BEFORE the Brexit vote.

    We could have used her help at the moment of decision.

    No person on earth has a greater stake in the preservation of British traditions than she does

    And yet

    Paradoxically

    The word from her when it mattered was mum.

  18. wbboei, she made those comments in relative private. The Royal Family has a tradition of not speaking publicly about politics. I read recently that Diana’s older son made a remark about something political (I forget what), and there was public pushback about it.

  19. It is heartwarming to see that progressives are now rushing to defend Clapper.

    Good.

    Clapper who used the Russian disinformation as proof against Trump has been discredited.

    Ergo, he can uses all the help he can get–to avoid prosecution.

    But what pray tell what does this tell us about progressives?

    That they fall in love too easily?

    That they are dumber than owl shit?

    That they are schizophrenic?

    All of the above?

    ————-
    When a nation is slipping into the abyss, might that not be a good time to say something if not publicly then at least to the right people.

    But the way, I am trying to pinpoint when exactly the tradition you refer to began.

    I do not recall that it was ever discussed at Runnymeade in 1215, but I cannot confirm this because I wasn’t there.

    Nor was in much on the mind of Henry VIII when he asked his bootlickers who will rid me of that meddlesome priest.

    And I have it on good authority that Queen Victoria did, before and after the diamond jubilee summon Prime Minister to Buckingham Palace for precisely that purpose.

    Even though they always say as you did that it is a tradition not to comment.

    It seems to me that is she feels strongly on the subject, she would find a way to make her views known.

    Needless to say, I wish she had, because I think very highly of her.

  21. Lorac, all she would have do to get the point across was to read the following passage from Richard II–one of the most beautiful passages in the English language:

    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm,
    THIS ENGLAND . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  22. What the h*ll is Obama doing?
    ————-
    Acting on orders from the Deep State.

    Obama himself is nothing more than a cipher.

    He does not make those decisions, they come out of the CFR.

    Its why you saw Mattis and Tillison saying nice things about NATO.

    It is a matter of temporizing.

  23. The Telegraph is digging out, exposing and publishing the idiocy of “the dirty dossier”. London’s journalists are doing what the US media will not. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/12/lurid-donald-trump-dossier-casts-shadow-mi6-christopher-steele/
    Jeb Bush set this up. Hired an ex-MI6 mediocrity to talk to his Russian ex-pat pals, swallowed their garbage, spread the lies at White Hall who duly tried to help sink Trump. Now May has a problem with her Remain, pro-globalist, career AND retired MI6 schmucks. A Blairite former UK to Russian ambassador was selling the dirty dossier to globalist open border allies in the US such as McCain. Clowns in a goat rodeo are being outed.

  24. Mr Steele, who friends say fears for his safety, has gone into hiding while the veracity of the claims made in his dossier, and his own reputation, continue to be fiercely debated.
    ———
    Fears for his life?

    Gone into hiding??

    This current member of MI-16???

    I am shocked he would behave in this manner.

    He is the quinessetial man who knew too much.

    Lets hope we get to him before the CIA does.

    We need to know who is involved.

    They on the other hand want to silence him.

    Also, I assume he has a family who the CIA can get to.

    It will be dicey.

    This will have a chilling effect on the US relationship with Britain moving forward.

    And they goddamned well better be prepared and stand the fuck bye.

    For the British government to thwart the will of the people of this country is a cardinal sin.

    And believe me, they are into this thing up to their proverbial neck, including Ms May.

  25. Dang phone… 7 days, one can only imagine the hysterics yet to come. I made a mistake and watched 30 seconds on MSNBC and then 2 minutes of Fox, all out against Trump, usual suspects.

    Obama stabs Cubans in the back… so what else is new

    For the British government to thwart the will of the people of this country is a cardinal sin.

    And believe me, they are into this thing up to their proverbial neck, including Ms May.

    MI6 being involved certainly answers some of the questions why the old stick May is so hostile to Trump. Now a Forbes writer, and Russia expert, explains:

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/paulroderickgregory/2017/01/13/the-trump-dossier-is-false-news-and-heres-why/#5386668d55f1
    “I have picked out just a few excerpts from the Orbis report. It was written, in my opinion, not by an ex British intelligence officer but by a Russian trained in the KGB tradition. It is full of names, dates, meetings, quarrels, and events that are hearsay (one an overheard conversation). It is a collection of “this important person” said this to “another important person.” There is no record; no informant is identified by name or by more than a generic title. The report appears to fail the veracity test in the one instance of a purported meeting in which names, dates, and location are provided. Some of the stories are so bizarre (the Rosneft $12 billion bribe) that they fail the laugh test. Yet, there appears to be a desire on the part of some media and Trump opponents on both sides of the aisle to picture the Orbis report as genuine but unverifiable.

    After reading the Orbis report I got the queasy feeling that it may have influenced intelligence community’s unclassified report. Leaks of classified bits by NBCNews and the Washington Post suggest the findings were, in part, based on British intelligence and spies. I wonder if the reference is to Putin’s role, which the intelligence report characterized as direct. This is a matter the new administration must look into.” Read it all.

    This Steel mediocrity was running with Russian ex-pats. He used their gossip and slanted Kremlinology (and almost certainly paid them with Jeb’s money after taking a large cut) then running it through MI6 for permission and credibility, then the same with the CIA. Bush flunkies then peddled it outward via an ex-UK ambassador to Russia, McCain, and other dopes connected to Bushes. It was then “leaked” by one and all to the so called media gossips. It is all unraveling quickly.

  27. Bush family ties to the CIA are a matter of record. Poppy worked for them after World War II. He was present in Dallas the day Kennedy was assassinated. His father, the Senator from Connecticut did favors for Nixon during the Eisenhower Administration. He called in that marker later, and got Nixon to appoint him Director of the CIA. And he has been closely associated with them ever since. Reagan, an outsider, fought hard to avoid naming Bush as vice president, because he knew damned well what Poppy was all about. Sadly, in the end he had to do it for political reasons. And that gave the CIA defacto control over government going forward. That is the shackle on democracy that Trump is determined to remove, and they are just as determined to thwart effort to hold them accountable, and change the rules of the game. Seeing what they have done here should be enough to convince even the most skeptical observer that these people are Satanic and will stop at nothing. I have the highest regard for Mike Pompeop but I do not envy the task he has before him. As for Dan Coates, I was never very impressed with him as a senator, but people who know him say he will be fine. Lets hope they are right. The most important thing is to apprehend this guy Steele, place him in protective custody, and get him to confess everything he knows. Time is of the essence.

  28. This morning I happened to thinking of Lois Lerner . . .

    How lucky for her that she invoked the Fifth, and the corrupt Holder Justice Department, and the Obama contributor who served as US Attorney for the DC Circuit refused to prosecute her for what was clearly a criminal abuse of executive power. (Note: she fared better than poor old Tony Rezko, but he will be pardoned shortly)

    How unlucky for her that True to Vote and others are going after her civilly. Liability will not be hard to prove. Damages will be more difficult. On the issue of damages she should be required to forfeit her government pension, which I heard was $120,000 per year. It is unseemly that she should be allowed to collect that money when she abused her position and used government power for crass partisan ends, i.e. the Smith Act and its progeny.

    That entire pension should be paid into the coffers of True to Vote and similar organizations whose constitutional right she violated with arrogance and impunity. Taxpayers have no obligation to support her. Its like the equitable doctrine of unclean hands, i.e. (s)he who seeks equity must do equity. And clearly she has not.

  29. I’m not totally against reversing the Cuban wet/dry status, always had mixed feelings about it, but although I think this was in place before the election, I am sure obama signed the bill with glee as they did not support him or Hillary.

  30. Update: “A watched pot never boils.” Next Friday at noon… so… slow… so… slow…

    D.C. National Guard Chief Fired Days Before Trump Inauguration: “The Timing Is Extremely Unusual”

    “The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post.

    During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration.

    “My troops will be on the street,” Schwartz, who turned 65 in October, said, “I’ll see them off but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said that he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.”

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-13/dc-national-guard-chief-fired-days-trump-inauguration-timing-extremely-unusual

  37. S
    I am not buying the story, those dates are set far in advanced, doesn’t meet the smell test.

    As far as the Head of the D.C. National guard, Obamatard has to be the one to give that order, and as chaos is planned for the day and weeks after, one has to suspect really bad things. I hope Donald is on top of this, I am sure he is.

    And yes everyone has the right to be wrong, but eventually one should own up to it and not act as if it’s meaningless that one supported an antiI Israelis, anti women platform ,yet profess that Israels survival is of upmost importance

  38. I have not supported the democratic party since 2008 and voted GOP down the ballot except for President. I made a choice, albeit not a popular one to some here. I have stated I am over it and ready to move forward as all good Americans hope any new POTUS has success as it is good for the country ( although being honest, I never rooted for Obama, but much to my chargrin , he seemingly accomplished every awful thing he set out to do). I am aligned with probably over 75% of Trump’s stated positions. I called out Hillary every time I thought she was following Obama’s failed policies , be it towards Israel, oir other NATO allies, and health care “reform” which was jammed down our throats. The premium for me and my family combined for a quality PPO is 24k!!! (and there are very few alternatives in this state for quality insurance). The point being, I don’t know what more anybody wants me to do? I made a choice, not a mistake.

  39. A good explanation of Trump, by Trump, and what to expect from Trump:

    http://freebeacon.com/columns/the-trump-blitzkrieg/

    I don’t carry a briefcase,” the president elect wrote 30 years ago in The Art of the Deal. “I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. You can’t be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure. I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops.” This improvisational style hasn’t changed. The Trump campaign was an aggressive, freewheeling, bare-bones operation that maximized its candidate’s political instincts and dramatic talent. There was no canned “message of the day,” no rigorous coordination between candidate and surrogates, no deference to focus groups or outside consultants or Beltway convention or powerful donors. It was Trump who decided the message—you’ve heard it before—and established the style: media saturation, relentless activity, and fierce response to attack. “When people treat me badly or unfairly or try to take advantage of me,” he wrote long ago, “my general attitude, all my life, has been to fight back very hard.”

    That’s not often the case with politicians, whose tendency is to defer, pivot, accommodate, and ignore. No recent occupant of the Oval Office, and no other candidate for president in 2016, would have behaved like Trump did at his press conference this week. That’s the point. The Trump constituency is devoted to their man not despite his dismissive attitude toward established practice in the nation’s capital but because of it. The Trump vote is a rejection of Washington, of its practices, policies, and people. So divorced had the rich and smug capital city become from the realities of everyday life elsewhere in the country that only someone from outside the political system could change it. It’s not a defeat but a victory for Trump when the New York Times, Politico, CNN, and other “nonpartisan” and “objective” institutions fly off the handle at his latest move.

    Trump’s predecessors assumed office with a narrow list of priorities. Bill Clinton wanted a jobs bill, a deficit reduction package, a crime bill, and health care. George W. Bush had a tax cut, No Child Left Behind, a faith-based initiative, and a prescription drug benefit. Barack Obama had the stimulus, health care, financial reform, and cap and trade. Here, too, Trump is an outlier. His model is more Newt Gingrich and Scott Walker than George Bush and Barack Obama. The breadth of the Trump domestic agenda is commensurate with the 1994 Contract with America: tax cuts, Obamacare repeal, border wall construction and interior enforcement, judicial nominations, infrastructure spending, protective tariffs, military buildup, financial deregulation, Common Core repeal, school choice initiatives, a New Deal for Black America, and ethics and lobbying reforms to “drain the swamp.” And the speed with which Trump and the Republican leadership intend to pursue this agenda is similar to the flurry of activity during Scott Walker’s first year in office.

    More than 20 years ago, in an interview with Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, then-congressman Bill Paxon described the “Gingrich permanent-offense planning model.” Permanent offense, Barnes said, was the attempt to dominate “the agenda with ideas, issues, and policy initiatives,” leaving the opposition without time or space to respond. It didn’t last long. The government shutdowns of ’95 and ’96 put the Republicans on defense. Now the concept has returned, with significant differences. The first is that there’s a Republican president and Congress doesn’t have to worry about the veto pen or the bully pulpit.

    The second difference is Trump. He is unlike any leader in recent memory. He has more in common with a nineteenth-century president (Andrew Jackson) or an early twentieth-century president (Theodore Roosevelt) than a late-twentieth or twenty-first century one. He is wily, captivating, pugnacious, and dervish-like in his tenacity. I often compare him to the honey badger: He don’t give a s—t what people think. And he doesn’t need to, because of the fragmentation of the media and the revolt of the public against institutional authority. Gingrich was constrained not only by the presidency but also by the analog media that had tremendous power to marginalize and undermine conservatives. Today it is the D.C. press corps that is subverted by the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and other social media.

    Subvert, destroy, Big Media!

    – President-elect Donald Trump described a sting operation he says he conducted after becoming infuriated by a series of leaks about his own classified briefings

    – He says he decided to tell no one about a particular secret briefing, shielding even his longtime scheduling aide, Rhona Graff, to rule out the possibility leaks were coming from his staff

    – When word got out anyway, Trump concluded it was the intelligence community who was putting out information

    GERMANY – Sick vandals scrawl Islamic slogans on walls of Christian chapel in VILE attack

    snip

    In northern Austria, statues were beheaded and prayer books were burned when vandals broke into a chapel in the village of St Radegund on New Year’s Eve.

    Religious iconography has been targeted in a spate of attacks
    During the same day in the nearby town of Auerbach, vandals also broke into a site, where they smashed the glass casing around two Virgin Mary statues and stole 22 murals, which they then burned in a local wood.

    And just a few miles away, attackers broke into a chapel where they stole a Christ figure and beheaded a statue of St Barbara, in a sickening incident which caused 5,000 euros of damage.

    The $500,000 fund, set up by Washington DC’s Mayor Muriel E. Bowser, will help illegal immigrants in the area apply for asylum and will provide representation for those living in the city legally to obtain permanent US citizenship.

    Ms Bowser said that the scheme, which was announced on Monday, would help represent the District’s estimated 25,000 illegal immigrants who are faced with deportation.

    But this enraged Judge Jeanine Pirro, who hosts a courtroom reality show, for claimed that the taxpayer funded scheme would be better used to fund “Americans here legally”.

  48. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson got off to a roaring start in his primetime debut Monday night by easily outdistancing both MSNBC and CNN, proving at least for now that the decision to slide him into Megyn Kelly’s old timeslot was an excellent one.

    Carlson averaged 493,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, beating out CNN’s town hall special with Bernie Sanders (414,000) and The Rachel Maddow Show (324,000).

    Overall, Tucker Carlson Tonight averaged 2.699 million total viewers, nearly beating the combined total of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (1.369 million) and CNN’s town hall special (1.357 million).

    Compared to Kelly’s numbers on the same day last year, Carlson was up 27 percent in total viewers and a whopping 45 percent in the key 25-54 demographic, showing that Fox News may not wind up missing Megyn Kelly.

  49. I was reading over on JB’s other blog. Wow, those people believe everything the media tells them (anti-Trump anyway) hook, line, and sinker. No critical thinking at all. And they don’t seem to notice retractions of rumors published as fact. And I learned that Trump owes Russia a ton of money. Where do they get this stuff?

    Oh, and of course Hillary is the real winner because of the popular vote (ie, CA and NY). But… on the other hand, there are all kinds of excuses why she LOST. Wait, I thought she won? She lost but it took everyone fighting her, including Comey and the Russians and the media to take her down. And she lost because she doesn’t have a penis. And on and on. But then they say she won because of the popular vote. Which is it? lol

  50. The spy Steele stories have disappeared from UK media main pages and at least some Google searches. UK law protects official intelligence agents from being exposed so it appears to have been invoked. This may backfire as he is being officially protected by the May government as practicing intelligence agent although “retired” and now in the private sector. UK media outlets quoted people who know him saying he is a nothing-burger and hangs with Russian ex-pats who feed him information. And he was clearing through MI6 so he did have continuing influence at least minimally.

    With that avenue of coverage cut off the Daily Mail has switched their coverage to the US and aimed their sites at Fusion GPS. Founded by three journalist and not spooks. These idiots will have no intelligence protection since they are basically just dumpster divers. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4114546/Meet-espionage-firm-ordered-Trump-dirty-dossier-secretive-D-C-firm-aided-Planned-Parenthood-attacked-Mitt-Romney-s-friends.html The three ex-WSJ journalists hooked up with the spook Steele. None of the ex-journalists had any Russia experience whatsoever. “DailyMail.com can disclosed that although the report was shopped around to reporters by Democratic operatives shortly before the election, Fusion GPS had also been quietly promoting the dossier since as early as last summer, sources say.” “Other clients include Denis Katsyv, a Russian businessman, who also reportedly enlisted Fusion GPS to help defend against U.S. federal charges of money-laundering last year.”
    “The firm’s work for Katsyv led to recent allegations that Fusion GPS failed to properly register as a foreign agent, according to Politico. The firm denied this, saying it was not required to register because it did not engage in actual lobbying.”

    As information is dug out it appears more and more likely that these fools were on the Kremlin’s radar since they had worked for Russian mobsters and Steele the mope with Russian ex-pats. DC dirt-mongers and a London money-grubber were likely used as a counter-intel op by the Russians who then blew it up. The FBI smelled a rat but the oh so bright CIA didn’t or didn’t care if it was fake. So who was paying these goons? Jeb at first then Hillary. Or rather their globalist donors. The money stakes are unbelievably YUGE. Lucky Trump.

    The program is not for those who need one, but for those who want one. If you had any idea about how it works, you would have realized why your repeated demands from members of the blog are inappropriate.

    To be more direct, if you still do not get it, I am suggesting you take your own inventory.

  52. JB

    As one who for a long time agreed with your posts in the past, I have only asked you to explain how hillarys corruption and adherence to Obamas awful policies was acceptable to you.

  53. Optimist,

    If you do not mind, I will take a shot at answering that question. First, I would suggest your read Roger Stone’s book JEB and the Bush Crime Family. The Clintons are really just getting started at what the Bush’s have been doing for 150 years. It is a sad, sorry state of affairs, but our system is so corrupt that what Hillary has been doing is just business as usual. In my opinion, there was an inordinate amount of attention placed on it because it was being done by a women at a level where only men were allowed to be so corrupt. Only men are entitled. And that is part of the 2008 decision to place BO in the position. Look at all his looting. He gets a free pass. Then it was Valjar that outed Hillary on the email. But how many of the men have also been doing that for years? Obama was participating and he got a free pass.

    Whether you agree with the sexism part or not, it is unfair to make Hillary out to be anything but the product of the corrupt system that has come to be. She is but the symptom, not the disease.

    Looking at the candidates available in 2008 I considered her the least corrupt and most likely to reflect my values. But she was not corrupt enough so BO got the job. For the longest time, I hoped she was just playing along to get the job and then would be better than that. If the republican candidate was JEB, that would be the best I could get and all I would have to cling to is the hope that Hillary was a liar.

    That is how we have always been played, by limiting our choices.

    Then there was Trump. And you know, I really do not even care if the story about the peeing prostitutes was real. But he does have his flaws, too. But he spoke to what was going on and challenged them all. And would you look at how they are still carrying on. OMG. We have to stand with Trump.

    Hillary does not matter any more.

  56. Is it true little puissant Rubio could hold up confirmation of Tillerson?
    ———-
    No.

    For two reasons:

    First, he knows it would be political suicide. Its anti Republican. And Trump would never forget.

    Second, even if he did, under the Reid rule, with the vice president breaking any tie, it would not be outcome determinative.

  57. Very badly, very shortly, for a bunch of CIA mischief makers.
    ——
    editorial comment: CIA mischief makers (sic) TRAITORS.

    Unless the English language has lost all meaning, what they have done, is treason, in the classic sense of the word.

    The soon to be appointed US Attorney for the DC Circuit will be rather busy this year, right after he grabs the incumbent Obama donor and squatter, who refused to prosecute Lerner and other war criminals, by his nose and kicks his Obama loving ass out the door. Perhaps there will be room enough in the jail cell occupied by other traitors for him. As you know, we must reduce the problem of over crowding in our FCI’s (Federal Centers of Incarceration) and this would be one way to do it. No more jail suites for Mafia dons or Obama thugs. Please.

  58. and YES Hitlary does NOT matter any longer! The American people repudiated her and her policies and she is in the dustbin now of FAILED 2x democrat candidate She did NOT break the glass ceiling she did not even crack it this time around

    FAILURE and she’ll be remember as the one who left 4 Americans behind in Benghazi while she went to bed!

    Regardless of motive, this will be seen as a cover-up, and it shows what a prosecutor would portray as “knowledge of guilt” by the British government. Therefore, it does not come cost free. On the contrary, it is poison to the relationship between our two countries.

    Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant. Electric light the most efficient policeman.—Justice Brandeis.

    Teresa May, Globalist at Large: I know who the head of the EU is. I know who leads the World Bank. I am really hot for the Muslim Mayor of London. But for the life of me, I do not know who this fellow, what was his name . . . oh yes, Brandeis is, pardon me if I pronounced that wrong, and I assure you that I have no ideal what he is talking about.

  60. May will need to come up with a sacrificial goat for all this, and if it is not steel then it is hard to say who it will be.

    Steel will need to be extradited because the publication of the crime, and the impact thereof occurred here.

    Furthermore, his co conspirators, i.e. Brennan, Clapper, the head of CNN are also here.

    This action MUST be seen for what it is–not a prank, not an overreach, not even a rogue operation.

    Simply put, this was a coup against the United States government, and must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    That is the ONLY way to send the right message, and deter future moves by the deep state of this nature.

    Let me repeat that: the only way.

    Those who deal in murder, fear and intrigue, and treat them causally, must fact the music themselves.

    This goes for them, and indirectly, their families.

    I am serious as a heart attack on this.

    How else can we hope to take our nation back for the deep state?

  61. Maybe the jurisdictional basis is tenuous. Maybe. But would you want to be the judge that throws a conspiracy against the United States out of court?

  62. The plethora of fake news promulgated by our Harvard trained betters in big media, coming at a time when their services as honest brokers are under assault and no longer needed, does more to prove the point that they are not needed, than all the partisan attacks in the world. They stand as not only an admission against interest, but a self inflicted wound, which places anyone in the position of quoting them under the gun to first establish that what they have said is the truth, as opposed to partisan fiction. Its the old Aristolean model, that any speaker hoping to influence an audience, must structure his speech around three things: ethos, pathos, logos. Ethos, the notion that the speaker is worthy of belief is the first hurdle and if you cannot establish that at the outset, then no one will listen to you, even if you have the best argument in the world. Every fake new story published by big media now is lethal to their ethos, and moves them from the position of box seats, to the peanut gallery of public discourse.

  63. Just a couple points I wanted to bring up here:

    1) Lorac – Assange would have made a great cyber security chief for the U.S. as he is an excellent hacker. He hacked into the Pentagon I think when he was 15 years old and other US Department of Defense facilities. From WikiLeaks: He hacked into MILNET, the US Navy, NASA, and Australia’s Overseas Telecommunications Commission; Citibank, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Panasonic, and Xerox; and the Australian National University, La Trobe University, and Stanford University’s SRI International. He is thought to have been involved in the WANK (Worms Against Nuclear Killers) hack at NASA in 1989, but he does not acknowledge this.

    2) That bomb that Never Trumper Rick Wilson was threatening to drop over and over again was this dossier against Trump. Supposedly it was commissioned by Jeb Bush. It was shopped around all last year but no one wanted to publish it because nothing in it could be substantiated. It was given to Republican consultant (never-Trumper) Rick Wilson and I heard he gave it to McCain who gave it over to the CIA. That is why everyone is mad at McCain-because he’s a back stabbing jerk. In case anyone here doesn’t remember who Rick Wilson is (and pardon me for my indelicacy): he’s the Republican consultant who posted a tweet which mocked author Ann Coulter as a prostitute, asking if she receives extra money for anal sex with presidential candidate Donald Trump

  64. I believe that when Mike Pompeo takes charge of the CIA, heads will roll, and as the do, the Obama capos who are shown the door will need to understand that if they decide to sell what they know to the highest bidder, which will be their natural inclination, that they will not only lose their lucrative pensions, but they will spend the rest of their days in Leavenworth. Thereafter, subordinates who have any integrity, but have been blackmailed by these capos under the threat that if they blow any whistles, they will end up in a cage (that is an actual quote, by the way) may decide that it is safe to come forward, or in the alternative it can be risky not to do so, will do just that. ONLY THEN will we be able to develop an informed understanding of how the Deep State operates. In the struggle between democracy and oligarchy this is Armageddon. Finally, whatever comes of this needs to be made public, rather than kept in the clutches of old whorey senators like Feinstein whose loyalty is to donors, not the people. Ironically, the biggest political opponent to such disclosure outside the establishment will be the progressives, because the establishment will play the role of victim and sick them on Trump and his voters. Is there anything in the universe dumber than a progressive? Lacking critical thinking skills, they are the perfect attack dog for the establishment. Soros figured that one out long ago.

  65. I believe Hillary said that democrat voters are easily manipulated. Just a hunch, but I bet you that statement was not original, rather I think she was merely quoting her mentor, Soros.

  66. If you look at the entire res gestae, it the CIA/MI-16 cabal to this dirty dossie becomes obvious.

    But there is an obvious distinction between what we know, and what we can prove.

    And the latter, not the former is what is important here.

    The CIA/MI-16 cabal will try to separate themselves from Steele, and make him disappear.

    They do not need to kill him, they can simply give him a new identity.

    The only force that can outwit them in this little game is the old KGB, who did so consistently during the Cold War days.

    They may be the ones who tell us where Steele is hiding.

    But assuming Steele never does turn up, our best hope of establishing a nexus between him and our intelligence agency

    Is with the de briefing of key CIA officers who remain after the bad guys are shown the door.

  67. LU,

    I am very much aware of the “program” you deem to be so well informed of.

    If anyone needs a “inventory” check up it’s you.

    By the way, the questions were directed at JB, by myself and others, not you.

    There’s a whole lot more in this article, but I particularly found the below interesting about language

    Language is also different in the countryside. Rural speech serves, by its very brevity and directness, as an enhancement to action. Verbosity and rhetoric, associated with urbanites, were always rural targets in classical literature, precisely because they were seen as ways to disguise reality so as to advance impractical or subversive political agendas. Thucydides, nearly 2,500 years before George Orwell’s warnings about linguistic distortion, feared how, in times of strife, words changed their meanings, with the more polished and urbane subverting the truth by masking it in rhetoric that didn’t reflect reality. In the countryside, by contrast, crops either grow or wither; olive trees either yield or remain barren; rain either arrives or is scarce.
    …..
    Apparently red-state America was so sick of empty word-mongering that it appreciated Trump’s candor, even when it was sometimes inaccurate, crude, or cruel.

    “A friend of Steele, who does not want to be named, says he sold them in instalments at $15,000 (£12,300) a time every three weeks to anti-Trump Republicans looking for dirt on the tycoon in the run-up to the presidential nomination.”

    The pal added: “He was just a hired gun. His motive was money and he knew which side his bread was buttered.”

    Some friend eh?

    “Now the ex-spook, who fled his £1.3million Surrey home as the story broke, is said to be in hiding from Russia’s notorious Department 13 hit squads.”

    That’s what you get when you peddle smut and garbage sent out by Putin’s counter-intel.

    “Steele’s involvement in the dossier has embarrassed Theresa May only weeks before she is due to fly to America to meet Trump face-to-face.

    The revelations have also further damaged Britain’s relations with Vladimir Putin’s Russia which believes he is still in the pay of the British secret service.”

    May has to clear out the Blairites still hanging on for their pensions.

    “Steele, who quit MI6 in 2009, never told his former bosses, what he was up to. But as his reports also contained allegations of corruption, he needed to approach a law enforcement agency to cover himself. So he handed his dossier to the FBI who passed it up the US ­intelligence chain until a summary landed on Barack Obama’s desk.”

    So this is the story May has come up with to cover her ass. MI6 didn’t know. At least they are hanging this fool out to dry.

    ““I remain in contact with Mr Steele but this is the termination of his career.

    “Unless the information in the dossier is proved accurate I would say his ­credibility stands at zero.”

  73. Admin: to me, the case against the CIA looks like this:

    THEORY: the current leadership of the CIA, inter alia, is guilty of launching a soft coup to discredit, destroy and depose the president elect of the American People—Donald J. Trump

    EVIDENCE:

    When Messiah Obama took office, the CIA went rogue. They warned their people that if any employee of that agency blew the whistle on what they were doing, then that employee would lose his or her job, pension and would be “put in a cage” as their leadership put it. Then, the CIA began spying on journalists, members of Congress, and every American citizen. Finally, they lied about it.

    When the new Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, takes office, the first thing he must do is remove the top 1/3 of that agency. In so doing, he must warn them of the consequences of selling the confidential information which they will be inclined to do. And then, he must undertake a proctologic examination of that agency. At that point, loyal CIA employees will come forward voluntarily and provide the testimonial and documentary evidence which will prove the existence of the soft coup.

    HISTORY:

    Since its formation in 1947, the CIA has pursued a policy of endless war, political coup and regime change throughout the world. This process has come to be known as “colors revolutions”. Their objective is to displace uncooperative foreign leaders, and loot their economies. The beneficiary is that group of financial, commercial and bureaucratic interests known as the “Deep State”.

    George Bush Sr. (hereinafter Poppy) is the former Director of the CIA. Poppy has maintained those contacts over the years. His roots in the Deep State go back to the close of the American Civil War. They were partially exposed by the Commandant of the Marine Corp in his speech “War is a Racket” in 1934, which implicated the bank of his grandfather in the wars we engaged in during the 20th century.

    MOTIVE:

    Candidate Trump posed a challenge to the Bush dynasty. He had the audacity to run against JEB, after Poppy decreed that JEB would be “the candidate”. And then, he added insult to injury by questioning some of the more conspicuous achievements of the Bush dynasty, like false flag of 9/11, the Saudi connections, the ill conceived Iraq War etc. This is why the Bush campaign solicited the dirty dossier.

    President Trump poses an existential threat to the CIA. That threat is both institutional and doctrinal. Institutionally, he vows to clean out the swamp. That meant he would hold them accountable for their nefarious activities. Doctrinally, he promises to end the longstanding policy of endless war thus limiting the scope of their activities. This is why the CIA hoped to use the dirty dossier to launch a soft coup.

    MEANS AND OPPORTUNITY:

    The CIA and MI-16 have a long standing symbiotic relationship based the common enemy, the conduct of joint operations, friendships and the sharing of intelligence information. While the primary focus of their partnership is to defeat the ambitions of rival states, they will not hesitate to assist each other in taking down domestic politicians who challenge the agenda of endless war, or threaten to expose them.

    In this particular case, the point man of the soft coup was Christopher Steele. Mr. Steele was not some drunken sailor from Liverpool or Tiger Bay. He was a high ranking member of British intelligence. Anyone who believes he was acting on his own, and not with the approval of British Intelligence is naïve. His disappearance, at the behest of British Intelligence, shows knowledge of guilt.

    John Brennan, is the current head of the CIA. He is a man with a checkered reputation. He favors war with Russia. He claimed to have incontrovertible evidence that Putin rigged the election. Congress requested the proof. However, mindful of its secrecy, he provided it to big media first. Part of that proof was the dirty dossier designed to take down Trump. It was prepared by low level Russian operatives, i.e. fiction writers like Ben Rhodes, not at the direction of Putin, but at the direction of British Intelligence.

    In sum, the purpose of the dirty dossier was to take down Trump. Why didn’t the CIA/MI-16 create the dossier in house? Why use Russian flunkies, unconnected to Putin to produce it? Simple: they wanted to create the impression that the Russian government produced it and would use it at some future time to blackmail the President. Therefore, he was not fit to serve, etc. That, I submit, was their game.

  74. German’s well on the way back to open Jew hatred:

    “A German court in the city of Wuppertal affirmed a lower court decision last Friday stating that a violent attempt to burn the city’s synagogue by three men in 2014 was a justified expression of criticism of Israel’s policies.

    The court sentenced the three men – the 31-year-old Mohamad E., the 26 year-old Ismail A. and the 20-year-old Mohammad A.—to suspended sentences.”

  75. The dems threw women under the bus to support and not criticize Muslims. I guess Germany is throwing Jews under the bus to support and not criticize Muslims.

    What is it with politicians and their supporters that they want to promote the very ideology that embodies intolerance and violence, and that threatens to destroy hundreds of years of evolution?

  76. Well, counting down 5 days, 15 hours on the creep from Chicago, tomorrow is treachery in Paris.

    Pray for Israel.

  77. A friend of mine told me today how impressed he was with Linda Bean, heiress of LL Bean Company and Board Member.

    Years ago, a Member of Congress asked me to run the traps on her high donor list to bring in additional funds. The list was a motley collection of people, and estates of people with sundry interests in politics. One of the people I called was a high school teacher who was the executor of the estate of a member of the John Birch Society, whose last will and testament specified contributions to candidates committed to that cause until the well ran dry.

    Another name on the list was Linda Bean. Her husband answered the phone. He asked her to come to the phone, and she declined. He told me she was busy tending the garden. He told me that her interest in politics, and the reason she contributed was because she was committed to the right to life movement. At the time, I was glad my dad was not around to hear it, because he would say how dare people tell a woman you must have that baby, etc. In any event, she gave no hint of that in the interview she gave to Hannity last night.

    I did not get a contribution from either of them. They told me next time. It reminded me of the battle cry of the Brooklyn Dodgers: oh well, there is always next season.

  78. I read that earlier SHV…just boggles the mind. We are facing a World very much like pre WW2 but now the World has the ability to destroy us all.

    I am waiting to hear a response from Obama and Trump. Can’t even wrap my mind around it.

  79. Mormaer–

    I guess that is their version of the lone gunman theory.

    You will forgive me I hope if I remain skeptical.

    What would it take to convince me that I am wrong?

    Bring in Steele.

    Give him a lie detector test.

    And conduct a searching examination of him.

    (And waterboarding if that does not work.)

  80. Gonzo, Obama has no time to comment on the decision of the German Court. Nor does he care. He is too busy celebrating the hole in one he had recently. Unemployed bots and ninja terrorists across the country are cheering Obma’s prowess as a golfer. They say it is almost too good to be true. And big media is stage struck and completely enthralled.

    Free movement is a ‘RACE TO THE BOTTOM’, warns Dutch deputy PM

    He said something must be done to avoid the negative effect open borders have on the 28-country bloc – especially when it comes to wages.

    Lodewijk Asscher said increased immigration was creating competition for low-paying jobs, which was in turn driving down salaries.

    He said this meant Dutch workers were losing jobs to under-paid migrants, while small companies were also suffering.

    Austria’s far-right party chief calls for law banning ‘political Islam’ over its ‘fascist worldview’.

    snip

    He went on to say that the current cap on new arrivals introduced by the Austrian government last year that amounts to 37,500 asylum seekers per year does not actually change anything. He also criticized a proposal recently introduced by the center-right Austrian People’s Party (OVP), which involves the reduction of this cap by a half to 17,000 people per year.

    He denounced both measures as “laughable” and called for the “minus immigration policy,” which should involve not only a ban on all new arrivals but also an expulsion of all migrants and refugees, who entered Austria illegally or were involved in any crimes on its territory.

    snip

    Later Friday, the Freedom Party spokesman clarified to Reuters that any law against political Islam should be similar to an existing Austrian law banning the Nazi party and Nazi symbols. In his speech, Strache indeed compared political Islam to fascism when he explained why fighting Islamization cannot be defined as “hatred.”

    “Hatred” to a much greater extent refers to situations in which some Muslim states do not recognize Israel’s right for existence or when Muslim migrants call women that do not wear headscarves “prostitutes” and put Sharia law above the secular constitution, he said, as reported by APA.

    He went on to stress that people who criticize the behavior of migrants “because it is misogynistic, anti-liberal and reflects a fascist worldview,” are not showing “hatred.” Those who find European democratic rules inappropriate “are free to return to their Muslim country,” Strache said, adding that Austria “has forced no one to come here.”

    The head of the Freedom party also proposed to scrap financial benefits for all asylum seekers in Austria and instead provide them with non-monetary aid and social benefits.

    Wbb,

    Has there ever been a soft coup like this in America before?
    One has to wonder at the assignations we have had, lone crazy ?
    Beginning to think unfortunately not so much…
    ———–
    The Business Plot was an alleged political conspiracy in 1933 in the United States. Retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler claimed that wealthy businessmen were plotting to create a fascist veterans’ organization with Butler as its leader and use it in a coup d’état to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1934, Butler testified before the United States House of Representatives Special Committee on Un-American Activities (the “McCormack-Dickstein Committee”) on these claims.[1] No one was prosecuted.

    (Note: Butler was author of the War is a Racket speech I referred to above)

  86. “I remain in contact with Mr Steele but this is the termination of his career.
    ——-
    Source says Steele’s quit in 2009 so he could not have been working with the MI-16 when he produced the dirty dossier.

    That makes no sense because source also stated after Steele published the dirty dossier seven years later his career was over.

    Source says Stelle is in hiding BECAUSE he fears that Russia’s notorious Department 13 will kill him.

    If this was done on orders from MI-16 then he has more to fear from them than from the Russians.

    In any event, if he wants protection, he needs to turn himself in to Trump in order to be safe.

    Martin O’Malley ‏@MartinOMalley 5h5 hours ago

    Now is not the time for reconciliation. Dietrich Bonhoeffer didn’t reconcile with the Nazis. MLK didn’t reconcile with the KKK. Now we fight.

    ———————

    Martin O’Malley – he’s the mayor of Baltimore or the governor of MD, right? I remember his name from one of those cases of a black criminal getting killed by police.

    It’s amazing. These people think they’re facing WWIII. They have no interest at all in trying to see if maybe Trump wants some of the things they want? Do they not notice his pledge about jobs, which he is accomplishing even before assuming office?

    Can they not take one moment to wonder what evidence they have that he is some terrible racist, sexist, pig? He’s sexist because he said insulting things to a few women. That’s not even the DEFINITION of sexism. Does he think men are superior? How then would they explain away his daughter, all the women he has working for him, even his encouragement of his granddaughter Kai? And if insulting some women is sexist, I guess all of us, even women, are sexist, so game over. Is it because he says he’s against abortion? Some people are. That’s reality. We don’t even know yet what shape that may take. And racist? What else besides that he wants to deport illegals? Um, that’s the law.

    It’s just crazy how they’ve created their own hell. They’ve built up all these fantasies about Trump, and are now all acting like it’s true and they have to fight!fight!fight! for the home team! Is this just some way to raise money for their reelections and grand vacations? Or is the manifestation of their terror that Trump is ending the money train? But they’re misleading half the country and they’re going to try to cause such violent disruptions at the inauguration. I hope the authorities are prepared. We really don’t need OWS/BLM violence and destruction. It’s time for law and order to win out again against these hoodlums and their enablers.

    But I still can’t get over how they have convinced themselves the world is ending.

  88. Praise be. Sharpton has a comeuppance just as the nation wondered how much more of this crap we’d have to swallow. As for John Lewis, IMO he deserves high praise for what he did 50 years ago. But what he’s doing now … not so much.

    National Black Church Initiative Urges Members to Skip Sharpton’s March on Washington Today 1/14/17. By Jillian Kay Melchior | 1:03 pm, January 14, 2017

    “Skip Al Sharpton’s March on Washington on Saturday, the president of the National Black Church Initiative told members of the network’s 34,000 churches Friday afternoon.
    NBCI’s statement, released a day before Sharpton’s march, slammed the Rev. for squandering his “carte blanche access” to the Obama White House, claiming that he “blew an opportunity to secure critical issues that affect the African American community.” Instead of pursuing meaningful changes, “Al Sharpton and his liberal friends took the time to get rich,” the news release says…In the past, NBCI has said that the Democratic Party has not met the needs of its black constituents, slamming both Sharpton and the National Black Caucus. It has also been highly critical of Donald Trump, whom NBCI has called “the biggest racist since Bull Connor.”

    Sources interviewed by Heat Street varied in their assessment of NBCI’s political influence. Evans said the group’s 34,000 affiliate churches together have 15.7 million members, spanning 15 denominations.
    NBCI’s takedown of Sharpton comes as he has struggled to draw a crowd to his March on Washington on Saturday….”

  89. “They Are The Opposition Party” – Trump May Evict Press From The White House

    The simmering cold, if heating up with every passing day, war between Trump and the press may be about to turn conventional, with the occasional chance of an ICBM.

    Just days after calling out CNN fake news during his first press conference of 2017, Esquire reports that according to three senior officials on the transition team, the incoming Trump administration is “seriously considering” a plan to evict the press corps from the White House.
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-15/they-are-opposition-party-trump-may-evict-press-white-house

  90. The Press just makes up stuff and with the internet there really is no need for them to be there. They don’t want the truth, they have a meme and clearly are sticking to it.

    Maybe they should camp out at obamas new house, just make it official.

    The Obama admin/CIA is illegally funneling TOP SECRET//COMINT information to NBC for political reasons before PEOTUS even gets to read it.

  92. ironically even for many ‘political/news junkies’ like many of us…this whole nonstop ‘Russia’ story with all its derivatives is getting old…stale, tiresome…and yes, the dreaded word…boring…

    if people, like many of us, are getting sick of hearing about it nonstop, surplanted and devoid of not only all other news, but such a glaring lack of anything remotely ‘positive’, ‘joyful’ or ‘hopeful and inspiring for upcoming the Trump Presidency’…

    …then one can imagine how much of most of the rest of average Americans are just tuning the whole Russia story out…our media is force feeding this thing to the point of making us nauseous…even the word ‘agita’ comes to mind

    also shameful it the obvious prediction that our useless and depressing Big Media will undoubtabley spend most of Donald’s inaugeration in split screen showing brief and shining moments of Donald becoming the 45th President while simultaneously giving air time and split screen time to all the protestors and all their ugly critiques of Donald before he gets a chance to do anything positive…including for his harshist haters…

    it feels like Donald and his supporters and even those who are now starting to become more open to him and to ‘giving him a chance’ are being ROBBED…the freaking media…and the CIA are robbing us all…

    I have faith Donald will try his best to outfox them…but get ready, every hater and critic of Donald is lining up for his/her moments of fame and vitriol…

    I wish someone…one of their own…would finally just stand up and say to the haters to “sit down and shut up” Have you no manners at all?

    the Dims have lost all sense of propriety and civil discourse and manners…

    German’s well on the way back to open Jew hatred:
    ——–
    No question about it.

    Arabs, not Jews, are the ones who are raping and murdering.

    Yet they side with Arabs when they target Jews.

    Evidently, it runs deep in their psyche.

    But Hollywood is fighting back!

    New movies will feature Nazi robots attacking earth from space.

    With Johnny Weismullers voice over uttering those immortal words:

    Tarzan hate Nazis!

    Congratulations Hollywood.

    That is what I call firing for effect.

    all while still under investigation…god only knows what the hell was going on there between the Foundation and State dept…we will never fully know because Hillary got rid of so much of the ‘evidence’

    I always return to how angry and disappoined I am over how Hillary and Bill handled all the millions of dollars that were entrusted to them to help the poorest of the poor in Haiti when they were their most vulnerable from the earthquake…and they screwed them and went with their “friends” instead…

  95. I did not watch the confirmation hearing on Mike (Pompeo) for CIA director, but there is an article on that subject in the link below.

    According to this report, he credits their unsubstantiated opinion that they rigged the election, but because he sees them as having a motive and means to do so.

    The CIA and the political class want war with Russia.

    But that is not what the American People want.

    Gingrich is skeptical of the CIA.

    He is well aware of its serial abuses of liberty and its fiascos starting with the Kennedy assassination to Benghazi to the dirty dossier.

    Their hatred of Trump is so intense you could cut it with a knife.

    And yet he is inclined to blame only the Obama appointees, and say they betrayed the agency.

    The problem goes far deeper than that.

    It starts, stops and ends with their service to the Deep State, which is akin to the SS loyalty to Hitler.

    In their eyes, there is no such thing as a constitution.

    That being the case, it is imperative that Trump take the exact position he has.

    At a minimum, he should place the burden of proof on them, to prove to him and to the American People that they are not the rogue agency they appear to be.

  96. It galls me to see these CIA people telling NYT they want to be protected from Trump.

    Isn’t it rich when the villain plays the role of victim.

    Dont cha just love it.

    Victims do not use MK ultra on American citizens.

  97. And, just to be clear, the widespread deployment of MK ultra was not done by the political class.

    It was the mid and low level operatives in the agency who used that scheme.

    So Gingrich is wrong to limit the cancer to just the political class.

    This is one of these situations where you have an internal problem within the agency, and an external problem of public relations

    I would hope Pompeo focuses on the internal problem, which requires a reorganization of the agency and uses Coates to handle the external problem

    Which includes dealing with those bottom feeders in Congress who side with the agency

    My point is, Mike should not try to wear both hats

    That, in a sense, is where Kathleen Sebelius went wrong

    She focused on the external aspect, the public relations, washington parties, speeches, public appearances

    She ignored the internal problem including the construction of a workable website which was the most important critierion.

    Also, she should have put herself and her family under Obamacare so she could relate to the problems of ordinary people.

    Mike does not need to make those mistakes.

    He neeeds to focus his attention of the internal problem, which is huge.
