  Back when I was new on this earth and arriving in town in a yellow school bus, the better part of a century ago (gulp), there was a program that came on our black and white TV in the late afternoon each day called “Captain Video”, in which, as I recall, the main characters were served by a robot name of “Tobor”, “robot” spelled backward – clever.

Suppose Trump had Hillary’s incredible Russian connection?

Jon Rappoport’s Blog

If Trump had Hillary’s Russian connection…

Trump would be curled up in a ball in a bunker a few hundred feet under the White House. And that’s on his best day.

The newspapers and television news would be citing nothing less than treason as the cause for his impeachment. They would claim he was, in fact, helping Putin win World War 3 against the US. A nuclear war.

Forget “Putin influenced the election on behalf of Trump.” Instead, mainstream attack dogs would be claiming Trump was a conscious agent who had been turned, years ago, against his home country. The dogs would be making up stories about how this happened.

“It was on a business trip that the world changed for a desperate real estate mogul named Donald Trump. Mr. Trump was on his way to Moscow, ostensibly to meet with several Russian oligarchs about a casino project he was hoping to launch. Instead, he huddled with a representative and close friend of Vladimir Putin at the Baltschug Kempinski Hotel, and that friend offered Mr. Trump a different kind of deal, one that would change his life forever and alter the future of America…”

This is what we would be seeing and hearing if Donald Trump had been involved in the 2013 Clinton business deal with Russia that everyone knows about—but no one is willing to prosecute or even cover (anymore) in the mainstream press.

I have written about the Clinton deal before, but it’s worth reviewing again, given the kind of heat Trump is dealing with for Phone Conversations. Conversations several of his people have had with Russians; even business deals that could have been consummated during those discussions.

So…here it is again. Imagine Hillary and Bill Clinton were not the wheelers and dealers. Imagine Trump was. Try to conceive what would be happening to him now vs. what is happening to Bill and Hillary: i.e., nothing.

I’ll go one step further. Wherever Bill or Hillary’s name, or the name of their Foundation, appears in the NY Times story I’m about to quote, I’ll substitute a Trump name (in CAPS), so you get the full effect:

Consider this plot line. Follow the bouncing ball.

Putin wants 20% of uranium on US soil. That 20% is owned by a Canadian mining company.

The Canadian executives want to sell it to Putin.

But because uranium is a US “national security” product, various US federal agencies have to OK the deal. One of those agencies is the US State Department.

Massachusetts Bill H3027….Objective? To cloak financial exploitation of the elderly

15 Comments

Marti Oakley

Comment:  If ever there was a valid reason for disbarring the BAR, making it unlawful for individuals in this closed union to assemble or to attempt to influence laws affecting the public, Massachusetts H 3027 surely has to be one of those reasons. MJO

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note to Mr. Harshbarger: What exactly is “ordinary negligence?”

The first thing we need to clarify is that probate tribunals (and these are tribunals) operate only under a intentionally constructed system of statutes, rules and regulations that exist only to avoid the common law and access to courts of law. You cannot use the Constitutions, neither state or federal to defend yourself from the predatory activities of these tribunals and the predators who access them for the specific purpose of exploitation and self-enrichment. You have no rights in these tribunals. You have no protections.

Gloucester Times

Harshbarger on Monday asked the Judiciary Committee to throw its support behind a bill that would establish a state office of adult guardianship as a public-private partnership that would handle the appointment of guardians for adults who cannot make their own legal decisions and lack family, friends or access to volunteers who could step into the role.”

At issue is the bill H 3027 currently in the Massachusetts Judiciary Committee. What is clearly a bill meant to legitimize and provide immunity for the predators in the guardianship-for-profit system, the former AG of Massachusetts, Mr. Harshbarger, now newly installed with the Boston lawfirm of Casner & Edwards, is hawking this bill which has no other purpose than to provide protection to the predators.

The first question we all need to ask is:

Who comprises the private part of this so-called “public/private partnership” (ppp)? And why would they be willing to fund a public agency that will supposedly only cost the state about $400 thousand a year to operate?

Sounds tantalizing doesn’t it?! Doesn’t it just give you the warm fuzzies to think there are actually individuals out there who are so altruistic, so philanthropic, that they would fund a public agency dedicated to protecting vulnerable people while saving the state a bucket of money at the same time!! Does it get any better than this? Apparently it does if you are part of the system!

Not so fast.

A CIVIL RIGHTS MATTER: Supreme Court to Rule On Federal Workers’ Right to Take Complaint to U.S. District Court

Leave a comment

by
Tanya Ward Jordan, President
The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C)

On Monday, April 17th, many present and former federal employees lined up to witness the Supreme Court justices open their April session with the case of Anthony Perry, a former Department of Commerce Census Bureau employee and a member of the Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C).

The question the Supreme Court with newly appointed Judge Neil Gorsuch on the bench must answer is — Whether a Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) decision dismissing a mixed case on “jurisdictional grounds” is subject to judicial review in district court or in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

If the Perry case is allowed to proceed in district court it has a far more likely chance of being heard by a jury. For the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is known to largely “RUBBER STAMP” federal agency decisions.

Christopher Landau, who represented Perry, urged the court to rule that mixed cases like his client’s should go to the district court. But, Brian Fletcher, assistant to the U.S. solicitor general, argued on behalf of the federal government. Fletcher disagreed asserting Perry’s case should go to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

If the Supreme Court were to send Perry’s case to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, rather than the U.S. District Court, it would be indeed a civil rights blow for Federal workers who challenge unlawful civil rights violations and adverse actions (i.e. wrongful demotions, suspensions, and job terminations). For “some studies report that the U.S. Courts of Appeals affirmed 90 percent of all cases they decided from 1995 to 2005.”  (See footnote 1)

Penn State Law students submitted an amicus brief to Supreme Court in support of Mr. Perry’s right to pursue his claims in U.S. District Court. The amicus brief read:
“The issue at the center of Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board stems from a 2012 Supreme Court decision, in which the Court held that federal employees whose discrimination claims are dismissed on procedural grounds by the MSPB are entitled to have their cases heard on the merits in federal district court. The Civil Rights Appellate Clinic, along with plaintiff Anthony Perry, argued that a federal employee’s discrimination claim dismissed on jurisdictional grounds, as opposed to procedural grounds, is entitled to the same type of review.”   Read more at link http://news.psu.edu/story/456966/2017/03/21/penn-state-law-students-submit-amicus-brief-supreme-court

The upcoming Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision on the Perry case will most likely close the loop and provide clarity for many federal workers, like Perry, who are often coerced into signing settlement agreements that require them to drop valid discrimination claims against the federal government.

Another Government Shutdown Shakedown? (Yawn!)

Marti Oakley

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It made absolutely no difference who won the 2016 presidential election. We can vote all we want, but the flight plan doesn’t change. We are being steered to a predetermined end with the only difference being which road we take to get there. This translates into …who will be allowed to profit most from the journey? We already know who will pay the bill.

Trump’s biggest problem was and is that he thought he was actually going to be running things…he’d be the “boss”. He’s obviously had his butt handed to him and now has back peddled on EVERY campaign promise he made. And we are just verging in the end of the first 100 days of his administration.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here we go again. The threat of a so-called “government shutdown”. IF only that would happen on a level beneficial to the country. But it won’t. Nothing that affects the daily grinding of federal agencies as they mismanage employees, programs and massive amounts of money will be affected. Both houses of congress will continue to gather and to collect their pay checks, their golden fleece insurance perks and, bribery from special interests hand delivered by lobbyists. Of course, we don’t dare call it bribery; we call it “campaign donations”, “political contributions” and other euphemisms meant to disguise the pay-to-play business of government.

https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2013/10/01/whats-affected-government-shutdown

Checking a list of government agencies affected in 2013 and 2015, it is apparent that the only people and agencies affected to any degree, are low-level staffers and even lower level employees of agencies.

A sample from that list:

  • Vital services that ensure seniors and young children have access to healthy food and meals may not have sufficient Federal funds to serve all beneficiaries in an extended lapse.
  • Call centers, hotlines and regional offices that help veterans understand their benefits will close to the public.
  • And, veterans’ compensation, pension, education and other benefits could be cut off in the case of an extended shutdown.
  • Every one of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Smithsonian to the Statue of Liberty, will be immediately closed.
  • New applications for small business loans and loan guarantees will be immediately halted.
  • Research into life-threatening diseases and other areas will stop and new patients won’t be accepted into clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health.
  • Work to protect consumers, ranging from child product safety to financial security to the safety of hazardous waste facilities, will cease. The EPA will halt non-essential inspections of chemical facilities and drinking water systems.
  • Permits and reviews for planned energy and transportations projects will stop, preventing companies from working on these projects.
  • Loans to rural communities will be halted.
  • Hundreds of thousands of Federal employees including many charged with protecting us from terrorist threats, defending our borders, inspecting our food, and keeping our skies safe will work without pay until the shutdown ends.
  • Hundreds of thousands of additional Federal workers will be immediately and indefinitely furloughed without pay.

You Fools You Fools You Fools—How Amateur Presidents, Amateur Secretaries of State and Amateur Ambassadors to the United Nations Could Start World War III

A Summary of What is Likely to Have Been a False Flag Operation in Syria

The narrative accompanying the video footage that swayed Trump showed the now discredited-as-propaganda “White Hat” brigade members trying to hose down the dying poison gas victims in a region where there is no American presence. The unknown makers of the video claimed that the chemical agent responsible was military-grade Sarin gas.

Within hours after the Al Queda video went viral, a pair of U.S. Navy destroyers – that had been pre-positioned in the eastern Mediterranean – launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles (at a cost of some $1.5 million each, which equals $85,000,000 of scarce taxpayer dollars in one pop, to the delight of some weapons manufacturer or other), targeting aircraft, hardened shelters, fuel storage, munitions supply, air defense and communications facilities at the Syrian air base. Only 20% of the air base was disabled and jets were flying out of the base within a few  days.

The cooler heads of most of the members of the UN Security Council refused to blame Assad until further study of the facts were examined by an independent group.

This space is reserved for the true story, if we Americans are ever allowed to hear it.

Let’s Not Let The Deep State Get Away With Another False Flag Event

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are people forgetting the most important question when accusations are made: Qui Bono?

Are we all as stupid as they think we are?

OVERTHROWING THE ASSAD REGIME IN SYRIA has been a Deep State wish-list item for years. Assad knows this, and he knows that his use of chemical weapons would be just the pretext needed for ending any even-handedness toward him by the Trump administration.

There’s no way Assad was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Damascus last week. Not a chance.

Not only would doing so be hugely counter-productive, but it would also be pointless. Assad has been steadily winning for quite some time now against the US-backed extremists trying to take over Syria, and he doesn’t need to resort to desperate measures that involve spitting in the eye of the hyper-power which has been itching for any excuse to come in and reverse things.

ON THE OTHER HAND, Rex Tillerson and Nikki Haley announced just the week before this chemical attack that Trump intends to leave Assad in power. That is, Tillerson and Haley told the Deep State and its “rebel” Islamic-extremist proxies in Syria that they were going to be thwarted in their ambitions unless something happened to dramatically change the status quo.

It is obvious to any but the willfully or mendaciously blind that the Deep State and its “rebel” Islamic-extremist proxies are the only folks for whom the use of chemical weapons in Damascus offers any benefit, which is had by accusing Assad of responsibility and forcing Trump to turn against him. In fact, it is obvious that these folks were just as much compelled to use such weapons in a false-flag sham as Assad was disinclined to use such weapons. More

     It would be a long song and dance for me to explain all of the ins and outs of a sinister plan by billionaire elite’s who are bent on destroying the very foundations of America and then rebuild it into an even greater slave state than it already is.  But here lies the real deal.  The primary plan is to take the world from a place of order to a place of chaos for the sole purpose of control, power, and more money in the hands of that 1% world elite  You see, when there is a lot of chaos, an excessive amount of control is needed for the “safety and welfare.” of the people.  And all along you thought that if more big government reined in your life for the sake of “safety” and for the “good of the whole” that you would be protected?  My friend, revolutionary movements that are sold on a progressive Marxist agenda will use doublespeak wherever and whenever it supports their world agenda.  The European Union is a bitter snapshot of an anti-nationalistic agenda that appears to be failing.  It is  an attempt to breakdown nationalism and cultures into secular conformity to where countries will have no history, no constitution, no rights, and no votes.

Clearly, we the people are in a cold war, soon to become violent, being spearheaded by an elite group which has caused this havoc by using followers that are programed into thinking in these terms.

Minnesota Attorney General’s Office Defends Corrupt Judge, Refuses to Intervene in Grazzini-Rucki Case

1 Comment

Welcome to Minnesota!!

Justice for Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and Children

Is the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office participating in a cover up of corruption happening in Dakota County? 

The current Attorney General in Minnesota is Laurie Swanson, who was elected in 2006, and reelected in 2010 and 2014. The Attorney General’s Office has been receiving documentation concerning the Grazzini-Rucki case for over 5 years and has refused to investigate or take any action in the face of serious allegations, and evidence, showing corruption in local government and law enforcement. However, when opposing President Trump’s immigrant order, Lori Swanson said “It does not pass constitutional muster, is inconsistent with our history as a nation, and undermines our national security. The same can be said for Dakota County; yet instead of taking a public stance on a very real concern that affects not only the Grazzini-Rucki family but the entire state of Minnesota, and possibly tens of thousands of families…

Congress repealed FCC privacy rules for the internet

6 Comments

It’s already begun. Just days after Congress voted to kill Internet privacy, Verizon has announced plans to install spyware on every Android phone on their network [1][2].

Protecting and encrypting your online life is more urgent than ever before.

Lawmakers who have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from Big Cable companies [3] used a Congressional rule that gave them a small window to repeal the FCC privacy rules, which would have protected Internet users from some of the creepiest things their Internet service providers (ISPs) can do. But Congress just let ISPs like Verizon and Comcast in on:

  • Your health history
  • Your financial status & how much money you make
  • Where you go
  • Your political and religious views
  • What products you buy, and so much more

Apathy is no longer an option.

The time to start securing your most private information online is right now.

Our easy, 6-step guide, #GetSafe, shows you how.

Congress voting to kill Internet privacy is bad– but there are still really meaningful things that you can do to increase your privacy, and if you’re not doing them, you’re leaving yourself completely vulnerable.

Through #GetSafe, we’ll walk you through some basic steps that will dramatically increase the safety of the personal information stored on your phone and computer. It’s quick, you don’t need to be tech savvy, and it’s more important now than ever before.

CaLExit 2

Author, Chuck Frank
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Lo & behold, of all things, Nigel Farge from Great Britain and Aaron Banks who spearheaded the Brexit movement, to where the UK left the European Union were just in California raising a million dollars for the sole purpose of splitting the State of California in two by pushing for a referendum which would be placed on the ballot in 2018.

What is interesting though about this report is that the split is referred to an East/West California event vs. a North/South split.  Members of the State of Jefferson were not contacted, to my knowledge, all the while a new movement, CalExit 2, is now  going full speed ahead.

Where the CalExit2 differs markedly from the State of Jefferson’s proposal is with the ceding of all of the western coastal counties staying as California, while the inclusion of the entire eastern part of the state along with Orange and San Diego counties would then be become the new 51st state.  Now, that’s a new twist.

In the meantime, the State of Jefferson has money, attorneys and selected northern counties that are working on suing the State of California for a lack of representation, which will then, in the end, make the demand in a court of law that the State of Jefferson becomes the 51st State.

Anyway, as a person cuts it, “we the people” who are in the more forested and agricultural regions of the north, must split from the Great Late State of California because these counties in Northern California have suffered long enough under the tyrannical rule of Sacramento’s far socialist left which has caused a plague of poverty in the rural areas through a maze of mandates and regulations that has left numerous counties either bankrupt or in the hole while forcing millions of dollars to be borrowed by these governments in order to stay afloat.  And who’s paying for the interest?  The taxpayers through higher taxes. 

Hello!  Thus, here lies the reason why a split from the State of California is urgently needed but not only because of the financial burdens placed upon the northern sector, but also because of the lost freedoms and liberties that have transpired over decades of a socialist movement that is intent of the redistribution of the wealth which has left the middle class in dire straits through the loss of jobs as well as over taxation that has supported the great late Capitol of Sacramento.

America hates the professional politicians. Help us impose Term Limits on Congress!

Here is the link: Term Limits Petition

It’s critical that everyone in America who supports Term Limits signs this petition and DEMANDS that his or her state join the call for the Term Limits Convention.

Thirty-four states can bypass Congress and impose Term Limits through a Term Limits Convention.  There simply is no other way to rein in the crooks in Congress and impose term limits on the House and Senate.

So, now that you’ve signed the national Term Limits petition, will you please forward this email to everyone you know who might support term limits for Congress?  And ask them to sign petition, too?

We need your help to gather more signatures to pressure more state legislatures to pass our Term Limits Convention bill.

Please help.  Forward this email.  Like us on Facebook or spread the word on Twitter —  anything you can to help get more patriotic Americans involved in this citizen movement.

Here is the link: Term Limits Petition

America hates the professional politicians.  Help us impose Term Limits on Congress!

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Can Trump’s Anti-Democracy Swamp-Dwellers be Tried and Convicted for Treason?

Treason could be logically defined as “the crime of betraying one’s country (or its values) and/or giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the state (or in the case of the United States, its democratic values), no matter if the enemies are foreign or domestic.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor — he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation — he works secretly and unknown to undermine the pillars of a city — he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” — Cicero, 42 B.C.

DIGITAL KINGDOMS AND OUR FIGHT FOR FREEDOM

Leave a comment

    Author,  Chuck Frank
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The idea of freedom has been one big part of the American Dream for as long as I can remember.  It is a word that has been embedded in our culture for over two centuries and it was the reason why so many immigrants have fled their own countries to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

 For the cause of freedom, American soldiers have fought abroad in many wars but also for the purpose of preserving unity, liberty, and individual rights for all.  Notice, I did not include justice because that word  is far too ambiguous.  What may be just to one person may not be just for another. 

The times they are a changing.

Now taking the freedom factor a bit further, the framers of the U.S. Constitution insured the people’s freedoms by drafting the Bill of Rights which were the first 10 amendments to the Constitution and these tenets were generally meant to protect the common people, but not from those enemies abroad as much as it was to protect the people from their own government.  China and numerous countries do not have this protection.  Yet, this truth will not be found in ones elementary school textbook nor will it be found in any books that are
assigned by a professor in a university.
