Venezuela again. (By the way, a “gun-free zone”) ~
 
Venezuela Supreme Court Burns; ABC, CBS, NBC Snooze ~

The media seem allergic to reporting on the ongoing crisis in Venezuela. On June 12, protesters set fire to the country’s supreme court, after it “voted to reject a motion that would prevent Mr. Maduro from rewriting the country’s constitution,” according to The Telegraph. Yet, the morning and evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC failed to mention this major incident even once.
 
In addition to this incident, Reuters reported on June 15 that a prominent opposition leader in Venezuela was arrested, put on a military plane on May 3, and “has not been seen since.” This also has not, as of yet, been reported on by the networks.

Progressive agitation yields bloody harvest

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

~ Galatians 6:7

 
kathyGriffinHow much anger, hate and vitriol does it take from the progressive Left until someone gets hurt? How many Hollywood celebrities have to hold up bloody heads representing Donald Trump before one of their minions go ballistic? How often do they get to rage like deranged manics –
 

“[O]r pick up a baseball bat and take out every f*cking republican and independent I see #f*cktrump, #f*cktheGOP, #f*ckstraightwhiteamerica and “#f*ckyourprivilege.”
~ Lea DeLaria (“Orange is the New Black” star) last November

 
– until some psychotic acolyte takes them literally?
 
Well now we know don’t we?!

A gunman believed to be a supporter of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders sprayed a hail of bullets at a GOP baseball practice Wednesday morning, critically wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and injuring four others before U.S. Capitol Police took down the rifle-wielding assailant.

 

In an eerily prescient article published this morning before the attack, Al Perrotta (writing at The Stream) describes the latest, “creative” production from New York-based Public Theater, a re-make of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” in which the title character has been replaced with a Donald Trump look-a-like – and subjected to the same gory death. How entertaining! (CNN’s Fareed Zakaria calls it a “masterpiece.” 😯 )
The play just opened last night ~

As Fox News noted, Trump finds himself “brutally stabbed to death by women and minorities.” That’s playing to the pent-up rage of a Manhattan crowd. Or as the Times euphemistically put it, “preaching to the choir.” David Marcus of The Federalist wonders if “Eustis and his collaborators thought New York City’s left-leaning audiences of Shakespeare in the Park would get a kick out of seeing Trump stabbed to death onstage by angry black people.” (He hopes this isn’t the case.)

 
Breitbart recounts 15 incidents celebrity incitement of violence against Republicans – especially against Trump – within the past two years. You no doubt recall a few of these esteemed personalities, gracing us with their disgusting antics ~
 

• Madonna – “I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House.”
• Robert De Niro: “I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face”
• Joss Whedon: “I Want a Rhino to F*ck Paul Ryan to Death”
• David Simon: “Pick Up a G*ddamn Brick” if Trump Fires Robert Mueller
• Marilyn Manson Kills ‘Trump’ in Music Video
• Kathy Griffin ‘Beheads’ Trump in Graphic Photo

 
Charming aren’t they? So much for the civil society. They’re turning our fellow citizens into mind-numbed savages.
 
Perrotta sums things up nicely ~

If the world is a stage, what kind of players are we when we envision and mimic the violent demise of our democratically leader? What spirit do we invite? What responsibility do we bear? “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.”

Can we finally get some climate candor?

AGWhysteria-smlr 

Now that the Left isn’t running the show in Washington, is it actually possible that we could finally see some honest science in the climate change debate? Maybe. ➡ EPA Chief Backs Approach to Science That Could Upend Global Warming ‘Consensus’
 
Talking with Breitbart’s Joel Pollak on Monday ~

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt reignited a long simmering debate over a method of scientific inquiry that could upset the supposed “consensus” on man-made global warming, (saying that he) supported a “red team-blue team” set up to test climate science. Pruitt was inspired by an oped by theoretical physicist Steven Koonin, but others have been pushing this idea as well.

 
Imagine that! A real debate ~

Red teams would challenge blue teams on global warming hypotheses on “what do we know, what don’t we know, and what risk does it pose to health, the United States, and the world,” Pruitt told Breitbart.

 
Of course the science settlers are dismissive of this common sense, straightforward approach ~

Consensus scientists say the red team setup could manipulate public understanding of the science, giving a false impression of uncertainty and delay action on global warming. Skeptics, like (climate scientist John) Christy, say the other side is afraid the method will expose the weakness of the supposed “consensus” on global warming.
 
“My own analysis concerning 102 climate model runs is as clear as it can be — the theory has failed the simplest of scientific tests,” Christy said. “None of the august scientific societies crunched through the huge volumes of model output and observational data to perform such tests.”
 
“In the normative scientific method, when our theory fails, we are supposed to go back and modify or reject the theory and test again,” Christy said. “In this modern way of doing science, as best I can tell, the proponents of a failed theory simply yell louder, schedule marches on Washington, and attempt to quash any dissent.” […]
 
“Claiming that the truth has already been determined regarding ‘climate change,’ and thus Red Teams are not needed, is an argument made by someone who has not examined the theory,” he said.

 
“If truth is what we are all after, why would any scientific organization object to an independent look at the claims of the climate establishment?” Christy told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Philippines leaders ask social media to remove video of Catholic church icons being smashed June 07, 2017 ~ President Duterte has apparently caught the western leaders’ denial disease; if we pretend it’s not happening, it’s not. That way no one will know that the Islamists are trying to erase every trace of Christianity – including all believers – from the face of the earth ~

Philippine military officials said Wednesday that they’ve asked social media companies including Facebook to remove a video of militants smashing icons in a Catholic church in a besieged southern city, saying it may be an attempt to fan hatred and turn the conflict into a religious war.
 
Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla, the military spokesman, also urged netizens not to share the video, which shows militants ripping a picture of Pope Francis, toppling a crucifix, and stomping on and torching religious statues.
 
Militants aligned with the Islamic State group continue to control pockets of territory in Marawi, where they laid siege more than two weeks ago. They are believed to be still holding a Catholic priest and many other hostages.[…]

In what is obviously a bitter pill for homosexual and gender-confusion (“transgender”) activists to swallow, the Blade reports that “Trump on the last day of May issued five separate proclamations recognizing June as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, African-American Music Appreciation Month, National Homeownership Month, Great Outdoors Month and National Ocean Month.

Robot Priest; a sign of the secular times

“Father Automaton?” A Protestant church in Germany has come up with an odd way to commemorate the 500 anniversary of the Reformation ~

Imagine a sophisticated robot that attempts to play the role of a pastor, offering blessings to parishioners, reciting Bible verses and using its artificial intelligence to inspire the masses.
 
robot-Bless-U2 
You actually don’t need to rely on your imagination much longer, as a church in Wittenberg, Germany, has unveiled BlessU-2, a strange little mechanical fellow who is being dubbed a “robot priest.”

 

Hmmm…. I think I’m with John Daniel Davidson on this one. He’s of the opinion that this ‘Robot Priest’ heralds Christianity’s death in Europe

Given the rapid disappearance of Christianity in Europe, that seems like an odd way to mark the quincentennial of the Reformation. More than odd: it seems like a deliberate attempt to talk about something other than what Christianity is and why Europeans, like all people, desperately need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ for their eternal salvation.

 

It’s all part of a disturbing trend. Consider some recent headlines ~
 
Scottish Episcopal Church approves gay marriage ~

The Scottish Episcopal Church has voted to allow gay couples to marry in church. It makes it the first major Christian church in the UK to allow same-sex marriages.

 
A group of global Anglican traditionalists have now announced that they will appoint a missionary bishop “to serve the needs of those who oppose gay marriage”.
 
A senior figure in the group, Archbishop Foley Beach, said: “Today’s decision by the Scottish Episcopal Church to change the biblical and historic definition of marriage has highlighted the need to respond to the cries and pleas of those Scots who today have been marginalised by their leaders.
 
“The attempt to redefine marriage is not one that a faithful Christian can support.”

 
Pope condemns scripturally faithful doctrine ~ Francis indirectly admonishes the four cardinals who have asked for clarification of his extremely vague “Amoris Laetitia” ~

“They are fanatics about things that are not clear, such as these fanatics who go about there, sowing discord in order to divide the Christian community.”

 
United Methodist Church Appoints Transgender Deacon

M Barclay, a transgender person who doesn’t identify as male or female and who uses the pronoun “they,” was appointed in the church’s Northern Illinois Conference over the weekend.

 

Jesuits decide satan is just a myth ~

“We have formed symbolic figures such as the devil to express evil. Social conditioning can also represent this figure, since there are people who act [in an evil way] because they are in an environment where it is difficult to act to the contrary.”

 

With shepherds like this is is any wonder the flock is wandering away from the faith? What’s the point if the very leaders of the church no longer believe in God’s eternal Word? No amount of silly robots is going to make a difference if they continue to reject His Truth.

Liberal Christianity is the Suicide of the Mind ~

Ravi Zacharias: Christians Must Reject ‘Tepid’ Christianity as ‘Scorching Paganism’ Rises in West ~

A renowned apologist is urging the Western Church to spurn comfortable Christianity and instead emulate the prophet Daniel, who made several key decisions to avoid becoming corrupted in a deeply evil society […]
 
“Ladies and gentlemen, we are living at a time where we had dare not set a tepid Christianity beside a scorching paganism,” he said to great applause. “It is going to take men and women who are not only having integrity in the superfluous areas of life but deep in the very soul of their choices and commitments.” […]
 
“As torturous as the times may be, God will conquer not in spite of persecution. He will conquer through it as His name will be lifted up high as the blood of the martyrs gives rise to the next generation of young people who will see the courage and the strength of these men and women.”

Framing the narrative: a CNN tutorial

In the wake of every new Islamist attack, millions of us search in vain for those “moderate” Muslims among us to speak out and firmly denounce the atrocities. We’re assured that they’re out there – though they’re certainly difficult to spot.
Well eureka! It looks like CNN finally found some!
 
Oh… Never mind ~ CNN Creates Fake News Story, Stages Pro-Muslim Demonstration After London Terrorist Attack ~

Yesterday, a Londoner by the Twitter name @markantro filmed a CNN crew telling a group of Muslim women wearing head coverings on where to stand for a photoshoot. In the tweet, he claimed CNN was “Staging the event.”
 
Other critics have also accused them of staging the event. CNN called the claim “nonsense.” They said, “Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs. CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so.” The CNN report can be seen below.

 

 

The Inquisitr reports, “Fox News, BBC, CNN, and The Guardian have all allegedly used either images or video footage of these same Muslims carrying the same signs in various parts of London.”

 

If you still think the mainstream media has an ounce of credibility I’ve got a London Bridge to sell you.

D-Day reflection

As I consider that wonderful-awful, momentous day 73 years ago, I just thank God that our country faced that fearful crisis when we still had men and women clear-sighted enough to distinguish good from evil; and for that more virtuous time when Americans still believed in transcendent truths and something larger than themselves. Were it not for their faith, courage, conviction and selflessness it’s likely we wouldn’t even be here, still enjoying the freedoms they so valiantly defended.
 
Looking around at our 21st century, selfish, conceited, amoral, believe-in-nothing generations, it’s painfully obvious that we’re thoroughly incapable of meeting a similar challenge today. And having rejected God, America is not even in a position any longer to appeal to Him again for salvation.
 
In the waning days of our republic, I’m comforted – and eternally grateful – that my true citizenship is in heaven.

This is a re-post from June 2014 ~

The following thoughts on the significance of D-Day is excerpted from an email I received last Friday from The Fellowship of St. James ~

normandybeach1

The exquisite beauty of the headstones of Normandy’s military cemeteries together bear witness to a deep awareness in man that warfare lies immovably at the center of the universe: there is warfare in heaven; there is a sword brought by the Son of Man; fire cast on the earth; a battle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces; the battle front between good and evil in each heart. No victory without dying. No gain with sacrifice. Across the centuries, our battlefields should direct our eyes from earth to heaven, even as we respectfully salute the fallen. We hear the call, “Onward, Christian soldiers” to spiritual battle, not earthly. We await the final trumpet, the last command, when Normandy’s fallen together shall rise. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess: Greater love hath no Man than this Jesus, the Lion of Judah, who has conquered.

James Comey – detestable swamp spawn

Despite the relentless media drumbeat of late, James Comey wasn’t fired over partisan politics. Trump pink-slipped him because the man had lost the confidence of the American people – on both sides of the aisle. And an FBI Director with zero credibility is not exactly a national asset.
 
As chief executive, the president is in charge of federal law enforcement. It’s entirely within his prerogative to fire an employee he can no longer trust.
 

As an alternative to the current, progressive spin on Mr. Comey try this version of the story ➡ Former FBI Director the Ultimate Inside Man. [Hat-tip: chadams] The author is a bit effusive in praising Trump, but this detailed account makes a helluva lot more sense than the vague insinuations and baseless innuendos that the mainstream news networks have been spewing for the last few days ~

James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC.
 
comey&O-swamp 
He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.

 
Comey has been laundering money and otherwise covering for the Clintons since the 90’s; making millions by betraying his country. He was rewarded further for his treachery when Obama appointed him FBI Director ~

The only qualification Comey had was that the Clinton’s and their cronies knew Comey was in bed with them, was compromised and was willing to do their dirty work. Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a private-server, mis-handling classified information, selling access to favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation Donors (including Comey’s Lockheed Martin), and much more. Remember that this was about the time the Inspector General of the State Department found over 2 billion “missing” from the State Department finances during Hillary’s tenure.

 

The article is a lengthy read, but definitely well worth it if you want to know what a detestable, partisan shill Comey really is.

Pathetic: GOP divided on Comey firing as Democrats are unified
Democrats Wanted Comey Fired — Until Tuesday ~ The Left hated him until they loved him ~

Democrats have hated Comey for months. Many blame Comey for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s losing the election. Comey famously released a letter to Congress just before the Nov. 8 election indicating that he was reopening an investigation into how Clinton handled classified emails.
 
Comey, being Comey, closed the new investigation in record time, ending the investigation two days before Election Day and enraging Republicans by publicly declaring he still would not recommend charges against Clinton.

 
Comey Owes America A Full Account Of What Happened, Not More Of His Political Grandstanding ~

According to a CNN source, former FBI director James Comey plans to testify in front of the Senate to “confirm” allegations that President Donald Trump obstructed an investigation into Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia. It’s obvious how public testimony at this point will help Comey, but how does it help the investigation into alleged Russian collusion or related crimes?
 
If the Senate Intelligence Committee is interested in ferreting out the truth, it would ask Comey to formally sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and let him conclude his investigation before Comey testifies in front of the Senate. Otherwise, his appearance promises to be a clown show.

 
When the entertainment starts, keep in mind that on May 8th, then-FBI director James Comey assured the Senate, under oath, that…

… higher-ups had never told him to “stop investigating” a case, but also that higher-ups often pressed him on investigations they thought were a waste of time.

 
Comey refuses to answer bipartisan questions from senators, saying he’s a private citizen ~ Yeah :roll: He’s not trying to hide anything.

How did the FBI Director make #1 on America’s “Most Wanted List”?
 
[James Comey is so deeply enmeshed in the Clinton Crime Family corruption I’d advise him to watch his step (and probably his back!) with this upcoming Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. My advice: avoid solitary, nocturnal walks, and Fort Marcy Park.]

Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 
Top NASA Climate Modeler Admits Predictions are ‘Mathematically Impossible’ ~ A few simple facts for the lefties going ballistic over the demise of the Paris Accord ~

Top American Climatologist, an expert in climate modeling, exposes the fallacy that current climate models provide a realistic or reliable prediction of future climate change. In a 1-2-3 step guide to disposing of the global warming debate Dr. Duane Thresher says successful modeling with modern computers is “mathematically impossible.”

Paul Driessen, author of Eco Imperialism, explains how withdrawing from the agreement was the only reasonable thing to do ~ Dear Mr. President: Please Exit Paris ~

Exit Paris isn’t about the environment. It’s about letting us utilize our fossil fuel energy to create jobs, rebuild our economy, and Make America Great Again. It’s about avoiding immense transfer payments from the USA to foreign governments, bureaucrats and parties unaccountable to Trump-voting taxpayers.
 
Worse, even if the USA Remains, and the repulsive payments flow, Paris offers no help in removing real air pollutants. Carbon dioxide isn’t one of them, by the way: it’s plant food, not poison.

 
Elon Musk’s growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies ~ Such a principled, virtuous progressive isn’t he? Not quite. By self-righteously resigning from President Trump’s advisory council, Mr. Musk is inadvertently proving that it really is all about the money ~

Los Angeles entrepreneur Elon Musk has built a multibillion-dollar fortune running companies that make electric cars, sell solar panels and launch rockets into space.
 
And he’s built those companies with the help of billions in government subsidies.

 
Judging from the science settlers’ wailing and gnashing of teeth the last couple of days you’d think that Donald Trump was the only person on the planet opposed to Paris Accord. Not exactly ~ These Countries Are In ‘Behind-The-Scenes Revolt’ Against Obama’s Global Warming Deal ~

Eastern European countries are mounting a “behind-the-scenes revolt” against European Union (EU) global warming policies, according to documents seen Monday by the news site Climate Home.
 
Documents suggest Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, collectively known as the Visegrad countries, are trying to block or water down EU efforts to meet goals laid out in the Paris climate agreement, which they see as harmful to their economies and energy infrastructure.

And then there’s this ~Feminist researcher invents ‘intersectional quantum physics’ to fight ‘oppression’ of Newton ~

Whitney Stark argues in support of “combining intersectionality and quantum physics” to better understand “marginalized people” and to create “safer spaces” for them, in the latest issue of The Minnesota Review.
 
Stark identifies Newtonian physics as one of the main culprits behind oppression. “Newtonian physics,” she writes, has “separated beings” based on their “binary and absolute differences.”
 
“This structural thinking of individualized separatism with binary and absolute differences as the basis for how the universe works is embedded in many structures of classification,” according to Stark.

:roll:

Translation: I can’t deal with reality as is exists so we’ll just have to alter it. Diagnosis: Insanity.
 
This Isn’t Watergate, And Intel Leakers Aren’t Deep Throat. They’re Traitors ~

I am not sure at what point in our culture we decided that national security issues should be a political football, but that belief has infected even those within our national security community with a sense that they alone can determine what really needs to be a secret. It is disgraceful, and it weakens our country.

 
‘Kushnergate’ is a big fat nothing-burger ~ Another anonymous source leads to another phony accusation of back-channeling. The Russian collusion narrative grows weaker by the day.

 
Congress to Host Anti-Israel Forum, Sparking Outrage on Hill ~ It wouldn’t be quite as shocking if this had happened during the Obama era, but seriously?! ~

Congress is scheduled to host an anti-Israel forum that takes aim at the Jewish state’s military, accusing it of “systematic discrimination” against those living in the “occupied Palestinian territory,” according to an invitation for the event circulating on Capitol Hill that has sparked outrage among pro-Israel lawmakers.
 
The event, which is sponsored by a member of Congress who has chosen to remain anonymous (How courageous!), will feature several anti-Israel organizations that back boycotts of the Jewish state and distribute propaganda accusing the Israeli military of human rights violations, according to an invitation to the June 8 briefing […]
 
“This event is textbook propaganda aimed to perpetuate anti-Israel falsehoods and misconceptions,” said one senior congressional source familiar with the event and its sponsors.

California Forces YouTube To REMOVE Damning Tapes Of Planned Parenthood Doctors Discussing Atrocities and CNN, MSNBC Ignore Planned Parenthood Report [VIDEO] ~ ~ Totalitarians MUST censor the Truth to cover their hideous behaviors ~

On Friday, YouTube pulled down a video from the Center for Medical Progress that exposed in graphic detail just what Planned Parenthood does with the babies it kills in the womb. The video shows deputy director of the ACLU’s Reproductive Health Freedom Project Talcott Camp explaining, “I’m like — Oh my God! I get it! When the skull is broken, that’s really sharp! I get it! I understand why people are talking about getting that skull out, that’s calvarium.” […]
 
Dr. Ann Schutt-Aine of Planned Parenthood explained how she would avoid charges of partial-birth abortion in violation of federal law: “I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix and pull off a leg or two, so it’s not [partial-birth abortion].”

 
Portland Mayor Refuses To Give Permit For Free Speech Rally: “Stay Away From Portland” ~ (Sounds like Cuba. Or North Korea) This is tied to the misinformation campaign surrounding the “Portland Killer” who turned out to be an anti-circumcision, Bernie Sanders Supporter – not a “right-wing extremist.”

RussiaGate? Don’t get sucked into the MSM’s reality-free zone

With their Russian collusion conspiracy theory, our partisan mainstream media has finally gone from ignoring, spinning – and occasionally obsessing – over current events, to totally fabricating “news” out of whole cloth. Despite the fact that there is absolutely no proof of any illegal or underhanded dealings between the Trump administration and the Russians – either before or after the election – they are operating under that totalitarian ruse so favored by the Nazis; “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was merely embellishing Lenin’s shorter observation, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
 
Alan Dershowitz, civil libertarian, and generally beloved by liberals, is on to their game. In this interview with Tucker Carlson, he makes reference to something one of Stalin’s cronies boasted, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” That’s exactly what the Left and their media hacks are doing with President Trump ~
 

 

Back in March, Andrew C. McCarthy summed up the progressives’ plot thus far ~

The suspected wrongdoing here is twofold: 1) Russia materially interfered in the election, and 2) Trump, through associates with varying and attenuated connections to his campaign, colluded in the Russian interference. There is no proof that either of these things is true. Yet, the lack of fire does not mean a lack of smoke — of suspicion. It is suspicion, not proven misconduct, that triggers investigations — the point of which is to probe what you suspect.

Vladimir Putin’s regime attempted to influence the election, just as the Russians and the Soviets before them have always attempted to influence Western elections and policies that are sure to affect their interests. (And, oh by the way, just like Obama attempted to influence Israel’s election a year and a half ago!) And people in Trump’s orbit have business connections to people in Putin’s orbit. The connections of former Trump-campaign manager Paul Manafort to Putin’s puppet party in Ukraine are disturbing; so has been Trump’s indulgent attitude towards Putin, a murderous anti-American dictator.
 
Now, add to this smoke what is truly incendiary in this equation: our politics.
 
From the Democrats’ standpoint, Trump is a grotesque solipsist, dangerously unfit for the presidency. So don’t tell them that Hillary Clinton ran foreign policy for an administration that serially appeased Putin. Don’t remind them that it was Mrs. Clinton’s scandalous e-mails, not John Podesta’s comparatively benign e-mails, that had a real impact on the election. And don’t bother pointing out that, whatever business interests Trump associates may have with Russians, they never managed to rake in piles of cash while paving the way for Russia to acquire 20 percent of U.S. uranium reserves, as did Clinton and her foundation. They are Trump-deranged, and they will hear none of it.

 
As McCarthy emphasizes, lost in this ongoing media circus is the real story that Americans deserve to hear; the Obama Administration undermined national security, illegally “unmasked,” U.S. citizens, and is most probably in violation of the Espionage Act. This intriguing article, primarily about Obama’s fabulist Ben Rhodes, at Flopping Aces is revealing ~

Trump captured the nomination for President in July- exactly when Susan Rice began collecting data on him. The Obama administration had been scooping up data on Trump since 2015. Rice’s data collection spikes when Trump is elected.
 
Now the Obama anti-Trump machine kicks into gear. A torrent of Trump-Russia articles suddenly appear in the media many of which impugn the integrity of Trump and his aides. Democrats suddenly begin screaming about the alleged ties to Russia. It dominates the reports. Innuendo rules while facts are absent.
 
Then in December the Flynn-Kisylak conversation transcript is leaked. Flynn did nothing illegal and yet he was still unmasked and the transcript was leaked. We know that efforts to research into the unmasking were shut down by the President’s lawyer.
 
Then on his way out, Obama relaxes NSA rules so pretty much anyone in government can have access to all of the personal communications of Trump, his family and his aides, virtually guaranteeing someone will leak them to the compliant ventriloquist’s dummies in the media.

 
But the network news doesn’t want the sheeple to pay attention to any of that. Or to Hillary’s sale of U.S. Uranium to the Russians. Or what Obama meant by whispering to Dmitry Medvedev in 2012, “I’ll have more flexibility after the election.” Or to Barack’s ignoring Russia’s 2014 takeover of Crimea. Or to his 2014 exposure of our highest-ranking spy in Afghanistan.
 
Because – hey! Anonymous sources say Trump talked to a Russian in October! Or something.
 
I think it’s the media who should be investigated for maliciously undermining our duly-elected federal government!

Back when he was helping ruin Germany, that master of deception, Joseph Goebbels, elaborated further on his propaganda strategy ~

“The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

 

Today’s totalitarian leftists are merely following in the famous fascist’s footsteps.
 
But eventually reality will intrude ~
 

“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it,
ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”

So now, there is just one very inconvenient problem for the “Russia hacked the election” narrative, the tireless media-Democrat harangue since November 8: Everything of substance that is known to the U.S. government about Russian meddling was already known in those pre-election weeks when Clinton and the Democrats were hailing the legitimacy of the process.

This coup d’etat is not only about President Trump. It represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.
