Commentary and Insights on a Troubled World
Every year Americans are subjected to a rehashing of the mainstream version of the claimed terror attack on the World Trade Center back on September 11, 2001. As I and many others have documented over the years, 9/11 was an inside job—a Deep State attack on America. Many proofs exist to show that explosives were placed in the three buildings that went down that day, that the hijackers were hired and trained on real airliners in Saudi Arabia (on behalf the US Deep State), that the hijacked planes were swapped over the Midwest with other airliners, probably drones that were specially modified to attack the WTC and Pentagon. Thousands of details and credible evidence that all counters the official narrative have been uncovered over the years, and more is constantly coming to light. The false flag 9/11 attacks join two other seminal deceptions in world history, the phony fall of the Soviet Union, and the current phony Covid 19 pandemic, which I consider among the three greatest deceptions ever perpetrated upon an unsuspecting public.
Since 9/11 there has been a massive and unprecedented coverup by government officials, government-directed investigations (including the NIST report and the 9/11 commission), and a willing media to silence and hide the truth. The Deep State controls a large part of the government including key parts of the FBI, the CIA, the DHS, DEA and many top judges in the courts. Several people working for the FBI office that tracks Muslim terrorists discovered activity which was connected to the coming 9/11 attacks, but they were stonewalled or told to stand down. Here is one of those stories that surfaced recently, showing that the Deep State was still running Muslim terrorists a decade later.
Philip Haney was told to stand down in his branch’s efforts to track terror suspects. He received demands to keep silent about the DHS order in 2009 to scrub the records of Muslims with terrorist ties, including the “underwear bomber” that helped justify the intrusive TSA airline millimeter wave passenger screening booths. Unlike other whistleblowers who finally figured out that the Deep State was covering up all these Muslim ties because our own Deep State was running these terror operations, Haney still believes in independent terrorism, and doesn’t understand why the US is covering it up. That is what happens when you don’t allow your mind to consider the broader implications of the specific wrongdoing you see in government.
After Haney retired he decided to blow the whistle and TheHill.com published his story. Whistleblowers like Haney are so scared of retribution they wait to publish their story until it is too late to do anything about the Deep State criminals at the time who directed this. But remember that others who are loyal to the Deep State still infest all of our federal security agencies and keep the coverups going.
Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time.
This is a naive summary. As I have documented in the past, this wasn’t terrorism at all, but a staged event by the Deep State to justify searching all future airline passengers in more intrusive ways. The phony shoe bomber before him was a patsy as well. Neither “terrorists” had a blasting cap attached to their plastic explosives and were told by their handlers they could set them off with a match. Any Marine Corporal knows a match won’t cause it explode—only mildly burn. In Vietnam Marines even burned plastic explosive tabs from mortar rounds to heat their C-rations.
I have previously documented the story of Kurt Haskell, the US lawyer on board the Detroit-bound flight, who testified that Abdulmutallab looked unstable or drugged and had to be led on board by a “handler” who also got him through security by showing his US diplomatic or CIA credentials. The young man didn’t have a visa or a passport to use to get by security by himself. Now that’s a bigger story yet than the scrubbing of Muslim intel files.
Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.” [A lie.]
The reason for the scrubbing of the intel on these Muslims, is that the Department didn’t want honest employees to dig deeper into the background of these patsies and find out they were being guided by agents within the FBI or CIA. This is the same reason the government during both Republican and Democratic administrations worked to protect Saudi Arabia from being prosecuted by the families of 9/11 victims, even after it was discovered that the Saudi Embassy was paying for the expenses of Saudi hijackers taking pilot training in San Diego.
Those weren’t the actual hijackers, but were only patsies establishing the false narrative of civilian flight training to divert the public from finding out that the Saudis had actually trained the real hijackers on real airliners. I can tell you as a military pilot that a person trained to fly a Cessna 150 could not jump in and fly an airliner. He wouldn’t even know how to turn off the autopilot, let alone reprogram the flight computers to navigate back a thousand miles to New York or the Pentagon.
Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, [Obama’s] condemnation caused. His words infuriated many of us because we knew his administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material—the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots. The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep Americans safe, and the Obama administration was ordering they be wiped away.
Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.
A few weeks later, in my office at the Port of Atlanta, the television hummed with the inevitable Congressional hearings that follow any terrorist attack. While members of Congress grilled Obama administration officials, demanding why their subordinates were still failing to understand the intelligence they had gathered, I was being forced to delete and scrub the records. And I was well aware that, as a result, it was going to be vastly more difficult to “connect the dots” in the future—especially before an attack occurs.
As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).
All of these were Deep State false flag operations, not legitimate, independent terror.
It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009. It is demoralizing—and infuriating—that today, those elusive dots are even harder to find, and harder to connect, than they were during the winter of 2009.
No, increased intel wouldn’t have helped stop terror. It would only have made the coverup for Deep State agents more difficult. These attacks can’t be prevented when done by our own government, and protected from discovery by hiding the planning and execution under the veil of national security.
Meanwhile, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth continues the battle to expose the government controlling role in covering up all of this. They document withheld documents in FOIA requests, court cases ignoring their lawful requests and compiling evidence from other engineers documenting that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) outright falsified their report on the collapse of WTC building 7, claiming it was brought down by fires instead of the controlled demolition that it clearly was. AE911Truth.org is a fascinating website with tons of documentation countering the official story of aircraft causing the collapse. Sadly, all their efforts have been met with rejection by government officials, even during the Trump administration.
In the following article by Ted Walter and Graeme MacQueen, A&E for 9/11 Truth documents how in 36 news stories live from that day show mainstream reporters clearly stating that there were explosives going on in the buildings prior and during the collapse sequence. All this reporting had to be scrubbed or explained away later.
A&E Editor’s Note: As of the publication of this article, Truth is awaiting a decision from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) regarding the request for correction that AE911Truth and ten family members of 9/11 victims submitted to NIST on April 15, 2020. The request seeks corrections to eight separate items of information in NIST’s 2008 report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, any of which would effectively force NIST to reverse its conclusion that fires caused the building’s destruction.
NIST refused to respond by August, 2020, their 120 day deadline. A&E for 9/11 truth has filed an appeal to have the court force them to respond, but don’t hold your breath.
In the meantime, AE911Truth is taking one further step toward correcting the record on the destruction of the Twin Towers with the publication of this article. This exhaustive review of 70 hours of 9/11 news coverage reveals that the hypothesis of explosions bringing down the Twin Towers was not only prevalent among reporters covering the events in New York City on 9/11 but was, in fact, the dominant hypothesis.
The widely held belief that the Twin Towers collapsed as a result of the airplane impacts and the resulting fires is, unbeknownst to most people, a revisionist theory. Among individuals who witnessed the event firsthand, the more prevalent hypothesis was that the Twin Towers had been brought down by massive explosions.
This observation was first made 14 years ago in the article, “118 Witnesses: The Firefighters’ Testimony to Explosions in the Twin Towers.” A review of interviews conducted with 503 members of the New York Fire Department (FDNY) in the weeks and months after 9/11 revealed that 118 of them described witnessing what they interpreted that day to be explosions. Only 10 FDNY members were found describing the destruction in ways supportive of the fire-induced collapse hypothesis.
The interviews of fire marshal John Coyle and firefighter Christopher Fenyo explicitly support this finding. Coyle remarked in his interview, “I thought it was exploding, actually. That’s what I thought for hours afterwards. . . . Everybody I think at that point still thought these things were blown up.” Similarly, Fenyo recalled in his interview, “At that point, a debate began to rage [about whether to continue rescue operations in the other, still-standing tower] because the perception was that the building looked like it had been taken out with charges.”
News reporters constitute another group of individuals who witnessed the event firsthand and whose accounts were publicly documented. While many people have seen a smattering of news clips on the internet in which reporters describe explosions, there has never been, as far as we know, a systematic attempt to collect these news clips and analyze them.
The authors then list the 36 reporters who brought us the Twin Towers’ explosive demolition on 9/11. Here are a few excerpts:
David Lee Miller, Fox News, 10:01 AM: “Suddenly, while talking to an officer who was questioning me about my press credentials, we heard a very loud blast, an explosion. We looked up, and the building literally began to collapse before us.[the South Tower] . . . Not clear now is why this explosion took place. Was it because of the planes that, uh, two planes, dual attacks this morning, or was there some other attack, which is — there has been talk of here on the street.”
Each collapse was preceded by a massive explosion that triggered it, including multiple preparatory explosions prior to the airplanes colliding with the towers. The South Tower collapse began a few seconds before 10am and the North Tower followed at 10:28am. As William Rodriguez, the janitor of the North Tower testified, several explosion occurred in the basement of the towers which blew out the elevator doors and all the windows of the lobby before the aircraft struck. Firefighters testified to seeing all the main floor windows blown out when first entering the building, and black smoke hanging high on the ceiling. Rodriguez told the 9/11 Commission all of this proof about explosives in the building but the Commission omitted his testimony from the report.
Pat Dawson, NBC, 11:55 AM: “Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety for the New York City Fire Department . . . [He] told me that shortly after 9 o’clock he had roughly 10 alarms, roughly 200 men in the building trying to effect rescues of some of those civilians who were in there, and that basically he received word of a possibility of a secondary device — that is, another bomb going off. He tried to get his men out as quickly as he could, but he said that there was another explosion which took place. And then an hour after the first hit here, the first crash that took place, he said there was another explosion that took place in one of the towers here. So obviously, according to his theory, he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building. . .”
Dawson asks a police officer: “How would you describe your efforts to organize to the rescue effort now, given that we saw a sequence of events this morning? A sequence of crashes, then explosions, and then the collapses.”
Notice the key narrative that clearly includes the explosions before the collapse. Most debunkers try to say the collapse caused the sound of the explosions which is not true—the explosion clearly came before the collapse.
Cynthia McFadden, ABC “We’ve been told that all victims now who are taken out of the blast site are going to be taken here first. . . the first wave of rescue workers who went in were trapped, many of them killed by the second blast. . . .
Harold Dow, CBS “Yes, I arrived on the scene about an hour and a half ago. Believe it or not, there was another major explosion. The building itself, literally the top of it came down, sending smoke and debris everywhere..”
Anne Thompson, NBC “And I was walking on Broadway at Fulton, and suddenly we heard an explosion. It was the first tower coming down. And down Broadway you could just see this wall of debris flying at us. . . . It looked like a war zone. Debris, dust ankle deep, cars on fire, cars turned askew in the explosion. . . . Then at about 10:30 it looked like everything was all clear. I started to walk out. I walked down Broadway towards Canal. And we heard the second explosion.”
Notice that everyone hears a major explosion before the collapse of each tower. WTC Building 7 was an even more obvious controlled demolition, and firefighters there reported that they were told to evacuate the building because it was going to be “pulled” –a term that exclusively refers to controlled demolition. In past briefings I documented the official who went into the building after it had been evacuated. After finding no one in the control center, he heard multiple explosions going off inside as he was rushing down the stairs.
On my website, if you click on 9/11 update you can read most of the evidence pointing to this being a Deep State false flag operation, including my unique analysis of the attack on the Pentagon with a militarized drone airline, laden with explosives and carrying a missile under its wing which was shot into the Pentagon wall moments before impact.
Pilots for 9/11 Truth, of which I am a member, has the evidence of the radar tapes from the FAA showing how the hijacked planes rendezvoused with other aircraft coming from the West Coast, and then switched places. Here is a list of their digital downloads or DVDs. Look for 9/11: Intercepted for the story of modified aircraft and radar tracks. The other videos are excellent too, especially documenting how the crash at Shanksville could not have been a real airliner (it landed at Cleveland, OH and was put inside the NASA hangar).
As we mourn the needless deaths of over 3,000 people at the hands of the Deep State within government, take this opportunity to remind your children and grandchildren of the evidence this event provides toward understanding what a lethal threat the Deep State is to your lives and liberty. Sadly, too many conservatives have sent their children to public schools where they have become propagandized with leftist, politically correct philosophies, and where hard truths are ridiculed. It is little wonder they often despise their parents’ views and have become willfully blind to conspiracy.

The people who are sheepishly going along with the Covid narrative being pushed by, well, just about everyone are in deep denial about many, many things, not the least of which is the fact that the shadow government controlling this phony narrative is planning to FORCE the American people to be injected with the Fauci/Gates/Trump/Big Pharma/Covid vaccine. Those who refuse the vaccine are going to wake up in a nightmarish world where Freedom no longer exists—a world where the lack of the “mark” (government certificate, voucher or even implanted chip or digital tattoo of some sort) will mean that the freedom of work, travel and buying and selling is almost impossible. And the ones who take the vaccine will be totally controlled and monitored by the state from that day forward.
It kind of sounds like the mark of the beast out of the Book of Revelation, doesn’t it? Watch my message from last Sunday to understand the significance.
If you want to get an idea of what these totalitarians have in mind for us, take some time to study the conditions under which the Palestinians live in the Israeli-occupied territory of the West Bank. I’m serious. Study it for yourself, because THAT is exactly what the totalitarians have in mind for anyone who refuses to accept the government’s corona vaccination.
Virginia State officials are already promising that the corona vaccination will be MANDATORY for all Virginia residents—NO EXCEPTIONS.
State Health Commissioner Dr. Norman Oliver told 8News on Friday that he plans to mandate coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public.
Virginia state law gives the Commissioner of Health the authority to mandate immediate immunizations during a public health crisis if a vaccine is available. Health officials say an immunization could be released as early as 2021.
Dr. Oliver says that, as long as he is still the Health Commissioner, he intends to mandate the coronavirus vaccine.
The decision comes after Massachusetts said it would make the flu vaccine mandatory this year as part of a campaign to protect the state’s medical system. We suspect Virginia and Massachusetts won’t be the only states to discuss mandatory COVID and/or flu vaccination in the coming weeks, as the school year begins.
There is absolutely no doubt that Virginia and Massachusetts will not be the only states to mandate the corona vaccination. Not to mention the number of major corporations that will mandate the vaccination for all of their employees. And, no doubt, government agencies (federal, State, county and municipal) will require their employees to take the shot as well. I also look for public schools to mandate the corona vaccination for all of their employees and students. Schools already require a plethora of vaccines for incoming pupils.
All 50 states now require children to be vaccinated for multiple diseases before they’re allowed to begin kindergarten. California requires vaccinations before kids can attend preschool or go to daycare, with no religious exemptions allowed.
Connecticut forces parents to have their children vaccinated for an astonishing 9 separate potential illnesses.
But get this: Bill Gates, the man who makes billions of dollars profiting from Big Pharma’s vaccines, refused to vaccinate his own children.
Given that the vaccination issue now impacts all families in America, directly or indirectly, you’d think it would have garnered more media attention when it was learned that vaccine champion and Microsoft founder Bill Gates refused to allow his own children to be vaccinated.
This admission came from the Gates family’s personal physician in Seattle, who was speaking behind closed doors with other doctors at a symposium last year (someone at the conference leaked the conversation, so the doctor himself technically did not violate doctor-patient confidentiality rules).
The doctor reportedly told his colleagues, “I don’t know if he (Gates) had them vaccinated as adults, but I can tell you he point blank refused to vaccinate them as children.”
It also seems like Bill Gates and the elites know something about vaccines that the rest of us aren’t being told.
Well, one of the things we aren’t being told is the rampant corruption surrounding the largest vaccine manufacturers.
Under “Operation Warp Speed” the Department of Health and Human Services has allocated around $10 billion to feed into giant multinational multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical corporations – each with a track record of bribery, corruption, market manipulation, and price gouging.
The US Department of Health and Human Services itself is headed by Alex Azar – former president of pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly – which was accused of manipulating the price of insulin in the US, and fined for doing so in Mexico – Politico reported in its article, “Trump’s HHS secretary nominee boosted drug prices while at Eli Lilly.”
If COVID-19 was truly the danger we are told it is – why has the Western World placed its trust in the most corrupt corporations on Earth? Why do Western governments draw department and ministry heads from these corporations? Why is the development of these vaccines being done in secret by for-profit corporations through the use of proprietary technology rather than as an exercise in open, international collaboration?
Upon seeing examples of the colossal corruption carried out by each of these “Operation Warp Speed” candidates it will become clear that their collective appearance at the trough of $10 billion in taxpayer dollars to develop a COVID-19 “vaccine” is the capstone upon a long, sordid history of profiting at the expense of the general population’s money and even their health.
Six of the eight corporations shown in a table in Forbes’ article are Western pharmaceutical giants. They include:
*Johnson and Johnson;
Four of the six are convicted – not accused of or suspected of – but convicted of criminality ranging from falsifying research, the bribing of doctors, regulators, legislatures, and even law enforcement officials, to the marketing of drugs to children for conditions not approved of by regulators, and false advertising – just to mention a few.
One company is accused of recently manipulating the stock market as part of its inclusion in “Operation Warp Speed.” The last company simply takes US government money by the billions and produces nothing.
A normal person would not likely trust a convicted criminal – recently released from prison – walking up to their front door and injecting an unknown substance into their body claiming it protects them from some sort of disease or condition.
Yet that is precisely what the West does when they roll up their sleeves to be injected by substances created by pharmaceutical corporations repeatedly convicted of the worst possible crimes such businesses could commit.
The difference of course is a criminal walking up to you on the street raises immediate red flags.
A criminal corporation hiding behind bribed doctors with clean white coats, certificates affixed to their walls, professional, clean, and well-light [sic] examination rooms, stamps of approval from government regulators, and all the other facades of modern Western healthcare – lulls the public into a false sense of trust and safety these corporations and their products do not deserve.
If you don’t think that money—and the love of it—is driving this scamdemic, you are seriously naïve. For going along with and enforcing the Covid narrative, hospitals are receiving billions of dollars from the federal government. So are State and county governments, airline companies, nursing homes, churches, businesses, just about everyone.
In other words, these organizations and corporations are being BRIBED by the federal government with billions of taxpayer dollars (or more accurately, with Fed-created/borrowed monies) to push the Covid narrative.
This is NOT about our health and safety. In fact, our overall health and safety are seriously DECLINING every day that this phony narrative continues. This is old-fashioned Crony Capitalism (also known as Fascism) being used to create totalitarianism in what was a free constitutional republic.
For example, here in Montana, Covid positives amount to less than 1% of the population. The Covid death percentage is statistically zero at .009%. For these truly normal—or even subnormal—case numbers, the State has received almost $243 million in Covid relief monies. (Almost $24 million came into our own Flathead County.) That is over $100 million more than was requested and doubtless went to local and county governments. And that is on top of the $1.25 billion already received from the Fed. FOR WHAT?
Hospitals are empty and laying people off; government services (including the Postal Service) are slower than ever; banking institutions have closed their lobbies and shortened their work days; city councilmen, county commissioners and health boards are meeting behind closed doors and are more aloof from the citizenry than ever before; businesses are operating at half-capacity; grocery stores stay half empty; and churches are still closed. Good grief! McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants are still drive-in only. Again, FOR WHAT?
Furthermore, I’m here to tell you that the shadow government picks the president, not the people of the United States; and Donald Trump is their man for 2020. Yep! Trump will win the November election. How do I know that? Because the power elite know that if Biden wins, there would be a monstrous uprising from Christians and conservatives against the forthcoming mandatory corona vaccinations. But with Trump at the helm, they will do what they have been doing for the past four years—and especially for the past six months: NOTHING! They will sheepishly submit to the corona vaccination just like they have sheepishly submitted to wearing those stupid masks, social distancing demands, lockdowns, shutdowns, church closings, etc.
G.W. Bush was selected by the shadow government to install the Department of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act and America’s ubiquitous surveillance state. Trump was selected by the shadow government to implement this mandatory vaccination—America’s version of the mark of the beast—and the acceptance of a “new normal” totalitarianism.
And think of this: Americans are willingly surrendering their liberties without a gun being taken. The corona vaccine will make everyone who takes it a slave of the state whether they own a gun or not.
Right now, the one world-renowned figure that is leading the resistance to this Gates/Fauci medical tyranny is Robert Kennedy Jr.
It doesn’t matter if Kennedy is the son of former U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy Sr. and the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy—both lifelong Democrats. He is putting the vast majority of Republicans, conservatives and evangelicals to shame in his fight to resist this medical tyranny now being waged against us.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is a “criminal” according to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has vowed to bring the immunologist and head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to justice.
Fauci became a household name in recent times, but he has been a key figure in the U.S. public health sphere for decades — and according to Kennedy Jr., his criminality has had disastrous consequences.
Fauci, 79, has been the head of NIAID for a long time, becoming director in 1984. As the director, he is responsible for a large portfolio of research on established and emerging diseases. As per his NIAID bio, Fauci’s purview includes HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, tuberculosis, malaria, Ebola, Zika and now COVID-19. He also oversees research on autoimmune disorders.
According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who serves as the chair of Children’s Health Defense Fund, Fauci has “committed one of the most consequential criminal conspiracies in history.”
According to Kennedy Jr., Fauci “distributes $6b annually in research grants” and he personally ensures that “studies of autism’s environmental causes never get funded.”
When in 2008 NIH’s Autism Coordinating Committee allocated $16 million to study the potential links between autism and vaccines, Kennedy Jr. says Fauci and Tom Insel, the director of the National Institute of Mental Health, killed the studies.
“They have committed one of the most consequential criminal conspiracies in history,” said Kennedy Jr. “Children’s Health Defense will bring these criminals to justice.”
The people of America (especially Christians and conservatives) have one chance—just one chance—to save this republic. They must stand up en masse—and I mean by the tens of millions—against the forthcoming mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Already, statist “Christian” leaders are in the process of sedating Christian people into accepting the mark (or medical brand or digital tattoo or whatever symbol of state ownership Gates and Company comes up with).
And, of course, America’s larger churches and their pastors have received billions of dollars of federal tax dollars via the CARES Act and are, therefore, already bribed into compliance.
That means if Christians and conservatives are going to stand against this tyranny, they are going to have to do it without the aid and assistance from the vast majority of their pastors and church leaders. But do it they must, because there will not be a second chance if they do not.
I don’t know how to say it any plainer: To submit to the forthcoming mandatory corona vaccinations is to submit to our own enslavement.
P.S. I, again, urge readers to watch my message from last Sunday entitled Corona Masks And Vaccines: A Glimpse At The Mark Of The Beast.

The ever-fearmongering CDC has been forced to admit that the true figures regarding deaths from coronavirus are extremely LOW. Of course, the mainstream media and most politicians (from both parties) will ignore this reality, but that doesn’t change the truth of it one iota.
Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19.
The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26% — almost exactly where Stanford researchers pegged it a month ago.
Until now, we have been ridiculed for thinking the death rate was that low, as opposed to the 3.4% estimate of the World Health Organization, which helped drive the panic and the lockdowns. Now the CDC is agreeing to the lower rate in plain ink.
Plus, ultimately we might find out that the IFR is even lower because numerous studies and hard counts of confined populations have shown a much higher percentage of asymptomatic cases. Simply adjusting for a 50% asymptomatic rate would drop their fatality rate to 0.2% – exactly the rate of fatality Dr. John Ionnidis of Stanford University projected.
More importantly, as I mentioned before, the overall death rate is meaningless because the numbers are so lopsided. Given that at least half of the deaths were in nursing homes, a back-of-the-envelope estimate would show that the infection fatality rate for non-nursing home residents would only be 0.1% or 1 in 1,000. And that includes people of all ages and all health statuses outside of nursing homes. Since nearly all of the deaths are those with comorbidities.
The CDC estimates the death rate from COVID-19 for those under 50 is 1 in 5,000 for those with symptoms, which would be 1 in 6,725 overall, but again, almost all those who die have specific comorbidities or underlying conditions. Those without them are more likely to die in a car accident. And schoolchildren, whose lives, mental health, and education we are destroying, are more likely to get struck by lightning.
And slowly but surely, medical professionals are beginning to awaken to the gross hyperbole (and even deception) of the mainstream narrative regarding corona. At this point, I would suggest that any medical professional who isn’t willing to acknowledge the hyperbolic nature of the corona narrative is doing so out of the blatant fear and intimidation that is being waged against them by the medical establishment—a medical establishment that is being bribed with millions and even billions of dollars from the federal government to go along with this charade.
A 30-year registered nurse I know, whose credentials include an RN, BSN and ACN, said this:
I have been a registered nurse for 30 years, the majority of which has been spent in the community health setting. All of my jobs during that time involved infection control, whether that was part of orientation and general practice or more often a vital part of my responsibilities as a manager. Quite frequently, I had the responsibilities of writing policies and procedures regarding infection control and also was responsible for training and oversight of infection control. I also have continuing education for my RN licenses and many of that also involve infection control.
None of what is currently occurring today (particularly relating to the wearing of masks) in any way squares with either my training, education or practice, and I have worked in a wide variety of settings from labor and delivery to home health to corrections and everywhere in between.
For my entire career, the wearing of masks was clearly understood to be to stop the possibility of gross contamination of a sterile field and to prevent the splashing of patient bodily fluids on the face of the medical personnel. When I was fitted (fitted – as in specifically conformed to my face) with an N95 mask, it was again clearly understood that this was to help prevent the gross contamination of tuberculosis, which is not caused by a virus. If our faces or the mask itself were altered in any way (loss/gain of weight, mask crushed, etc.), we understood we would have to be RE-fitted in order for the mask to work properly.
Besides the fact that the COVID-19 testing is completely flawed, the case and death rates grossly distorted, it is clear that if the fear-mongering that is being propagandized everywhere a person turns were actually correct, we never would have survived as a species. Even a scintilla of critical thinking easily shows how ridiculous current “recommendations” and practice truly are.
Never before in history have healthy people been so demonized and campaigned against. It is unprecedented and for good reason, because it is completely erroneous.
Regarding the massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, once again, things are not as they appear.
Israel has officially denied any involvement in the Beirut port blast. The Israelis also deny their frequent bombing attacks in Syria and any connection to the sabotage explosions and fires in Iran since the beginning of the year.
But a retaliation from Iran is just what Israel and the US Deep State have been waiting for so they can finally justify a war against Iran and impose a regime change like in Iraq. It appears that the Israel reign of terror and sabotage is now aimed at overthrowing the Hezbollah-controlled government of Lebanon.
The Israeli government is ruthless. Not only does it kill enemy leaders in Lebanon, but threatens to destroy Lebanese civilian infrastructure if Hezbollah dares to retaliate—just as they did in years past. How does destroying power plants, water supplies, roads and bridges help bring peace? It doesn’t, and it is strictly meant to antagonize the Lebanese public and turn them against Hezbollah.
As for the establishment “terror” label being attached to Hezbollah, it is true that Hezbollah is responsible for terrorist attacks in the past, but in the most recent decade the roles have reversed. The US Deep State and Israel have been creating and supplying terrorists to invade Syria and Iran, putting Iran and Lebanon in the forefront fighting Deep State backed terror in the Middle East.
The fires and small white flashes of either munitions or fireworks going off couldn’t have caused the ammonium nitrate to explode at all, let alone cause a nuclear-like blast wave. Scientific American explains what it takes to make an explosive bomb out of ammonium nitrate:
Ammonium nitrate does not burn on its own. Instead, it acts as a source of oxygen that can accelerate the combustion (burning) of other materials.
It’s relatively difficult for a fire to trigger an ammonium nitrate explosion. The fire would need to be sustained and confined within the same area as the ammonium nitrate prills.
Also, the prills themselves are not fuel for the fire, so they would need to be contaminated with, or packaged in, some other combustible material.
This is the second time this exact same weapon has been used, and the first was an attack on Syria in January of this year by Israel.
The only kind of warhead that is small enough to fit on a tactical missile to create this kind of shock wave is a small tactical nuke —which only the US and Israel have in the West.
I think this was a low yield tactical nuke with reduced radiation. I’m surprised no one reliable is taking radiation readings in Beirut. Apparently, everyone believes the propaganda about the nitrate explosion.
Since this has the same explosive pattern as the Israel attack on Syria 7 months earlier, I’m convinced that Israel and the Deep State are behind this—trying to destabilize the Lebanese government.
I think Israel not only knew about the fertilizer being there, their saboteurs must have started the fire before the strike to give a semi plausible reason for the huge explosion.
I think we are seeing a new kind of mini nuclear weapon here.
These educated but rigid thinking professors are basing everything on large nukes, the only ones we have pictures of. I think this could be a new kind of tactical nuke which has been under development and deployed secretly during the last few years. Well, they’ve seen one now [a nuclear bomb], even if they are in denial about what they are seeing.
I urge readers to watch my message from last Sunday in which I expose both the corona and Beirut explosion deceptions.
The architects of tyranny are working overtime right now. And they are smart, subtle, sinister and deadly serious. Great discernment and courage are required of us if we are going to overcome their evil machinations. Seeing through the corona façade and Israel deception will go a long way in helping us.
P.S. For the very first time, I am able to announce that we have reprinted the classic treatise of one of America’s most important (and least remembered) Founding Fathers, James Otis. The book is entitled The Rights Of The British Colonies Asserted And Proved.
From my Introduction to the book:
James Otis (1725 – 1783) is regarded as one of the most brilliant of America’s Founding Fathers. Considered the top jurist in Boston (and the role model for John Adams), Otis is probably more responsible for the sacred American doctrines enshrined in the Fourth Amendment of our Bill of Rights than any other single founder.
When Otis petitioned the court in 1761 in protest of Britain’s issuance of general warrants and writs of assistance, John Adams, who was present in the courtroom when Otis spoke, said this was “the spark in which originated the American Revolution.”
James Otis is also widely regarded as one of America’s two “firebrands” of the revolution, the other being Samuel Adams.
Otis’ writings and “pamphlets” were as instrumental to the cause of American independence as those of his friend, Thomas Paine.
This treatise comes from the mind of a scholar and the heart of a patriot. His explanation of the necessity of Natural Law to the cause of Liberty and Good Government is unequaled among Colonial writers.
In particular, this treatise was an impassioned appeal against taxation without representation.
This is one of Otis’ finest works. Read this work, and step into the mind of a genius—and one of America’s most important (and least remembered) Founding Fathers.
John Adams said this about James Otis: “I have been young and now I am old, and I solemnly say I have never known a man whose love of country was more ardent or sincere, never one who suffered so much, never one whose service for any 10 years of his life were so important and essential to the cause of his country as those of Mr. Otis from 1760 to 1770.”

I’ll get right to it. Dr. Ron Paul states:
Faced with a virus that has killed about one-third as many people as the normal, seasonal flu virus in 2018, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has endorsed a partial shutdown of the economy resulting in millions tossed into the despair of unemployment [1/3 of America’s workforce is now unemployed due to this hyperbolized virus]. Then he arbitrarily shut down bars because massively increased testing showed more people have been exposed to the virus. And he mandated that people wear face masks. Neither shutting down bars (instead of restaurants or Walmarts) nor forcing people to wear masks will have any effect on the progression of the virus through society. But at least he looks like he’s doing “something.”
We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?
Dr. Paul gave the best assessment of this so-called pandemic when he said, “We are facing the greatest assault against our civil liberties in our lifetimes.” That is indeed the bottom line. Every other argument about or aspect of this “crisis” pales in comparison to the reality that “we are facing the greatest assault against our civil liberties in our lifetimes.”
In addition, Dr. Paul asked the most significant question of the hour when he asked, “Will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” Well, if they will, they need to get started—QUICKLY.
Every shutdown; every closure; every mask mandate; every limitation of crowd size; every forced temperature test; every travel restriction; every forced corona test; every person who loses their job for personal speech that contradicts the official narrative; every act of social media censorship; every church that stops assembling; every attempt to disrupt your ability to make a living, shop, bank, worship, recreate, socialize or engage in free enterprise is a blatant assault against your Liberty.
Mark it down: These are not mere inconveniences. These are deliberate, disgusting, destructive, draconian, demonic and damnable attacks against your Liberty. How long are you going to tolerate it?
This will not end until the American people themselves determine to end it. And if we don’t end it soon, it will be too late to end it.
This corona “crisis” is not about health; it is about control. It is about the abolishment of a free society and the introduction of an enslaved society. The planners of this attack counted on Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx and their accomplices in government and the media to instill sufficient fear into the hearts of the American people so as to cause them to give up essential Liberty in order to stay safe.
Benjamin Franklin saw this coming over 200 years ago when he said, “They that would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
The so-called new normal is nothing more than the old totalitarianism.
Anyone who doesn’t realize that total surveillance, control and enslavement are where this is heading isn’t paying attention.
Google announced on Friday that 20 states and territories, representing around 45% of the American population, have been “exploring” COVID-19 contact tracing apps built around the Exposure Notifications System (ENS) tool developed by Google in partnership with Apple. The first American apps are now expected to be released “over the coming weeks”, the company added in a statement coming from Google’s VP of Engineering Dave Burke.
The initiative has initially been welcomed by state officials in North Dakota, South Carolina and Alabama, who have announced that they would be the ones to launch apps based on the ENS tool. However, a backlash over privacy issues has already prompted South Carolina lawmakers to put the launch of the in-state app on hold.
And, as you must know, forced vaccinations are on the way. As I have documented before, President Trump has authorized Operation Warp Speed that merges the CDC with the U.S. military for the purpose of speedily immunizing all Americans with a corona vaccine.
A new coronavirus vaccine is right around the corner, thanks to Operation Warp Speed, and . . . the Pentagon. Still think this thing, and whatever is in it, will not be mandatory?
According to Politico, the addition of the Pentagon (if you need help deciding whether or not to get vaccinated, men with guns will help you) to help with vaccine distribution is unprecedented. The plan to use the Pentagon’s force breaks with the longstanding precedent that CDC distributes vaccines during major outbreaks through a centralized ordering system.
The Department of Defense “is handling all the logistics of getting the vaccines to the right place, at the right time, in the right condition,” the official said in a call with reporters, adding that CDC will remain in charge of tracking any side effects that emerge post-vaccination and “some of the communications through the state relationships [and] the state public health organizations.”
“We believe we’ve actually combined the best of both,” the DoD official said. A second senior administration official stressed the agencies would be working as “one team” to distribute hundreds of millions of doses if any of the vaccines in development are approved in the coming months. So, if this won’t be mandatory, why is the Department of Defense involved in any capacity? Isn’t this a health issue? If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s not about health. It’s about control.
For anyone who isn’t paying attention, the current President is Donald Trump. Just had to say is [sic], because people have some kind of religious devotion to the guy who is going to use the Pentagon to try to shove a needle in your arm. Trump’s own impeachment lawyer, who also defended Jeffry Epstein, also says you don’t have the right to not be vaccinated.
Is this still 5D chess? Are you still trusting the plan? Trump will be reelected if the banksters who are taking control of the world want him to be, and by getting this vaccine out, he’s helping complete a necessary step to our enslavement.
Sticking your head in the sand and ignoring reality won’t save you.
Exactly what kind of chemical cocktail will be injected into the bodies of trusting and unsuspecting Americans? We will never be told.
The truth is, medical scientists haven’t been able to scientifically diagnose COVID-19. They can’t even tell us exactly what COVID-19 is.
“In the early 1990’s, PCR, came into popular use, and Kary Mullis was awarded the Nobel Prize for it in 1993. PCR, simply put, is a thermal cycling method used to make up to billions of copies of a specific DNA sample, making it large enough to study. PCR is an indispensable technique with a broad variety of applications including biomedical research and criminal forensics.”
According to Mullis himself, PCR cannot be totally and should never be used as a tool in “the diagnosis of infectious diseases.”
To learn more about why this crisis is ridiculously based on faulty “science”, let’s hear what other experts say about the coronavirus testing.
According to Jason Hommel, a prolific writer and researcher and also the author of the very important article regarding coronavirus testing entitled “Scientists Say the COVID19 Test Kits Do Not Work, Are Worthless, and Give Impossible Results”:
“PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome. The problem is the test is known not to work. It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analysed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery. Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.”
Regarding Kary Mullis’ intention for the PCR, this is what he said:
“I’m sad that he isn’t here to defend his manufacturing technique. Kary did not invent a test. He invented a very powerful manufacturing technique that is being abused. What are the best applications for PCR? Not medical diagnostics. He knew that and he always said that.”
He went on to say:
“I don’t think they understand what they’re doing; I think it’s out of control. They don’t know how to end this. This is what I think what happened: They have built a pandemic machine over many years and, and as you know, there was a pandemic exercise not long before this whole thing started.”
Asked by Farber what his advice for people who want to be tested for COVID-19, he replied:
“Don’t do it, I say, when people ask me. No healthy person should be tested. It means nothing but it can destroy your life, make you absolutely miserable. Every time somebody takes a swab, a tissue sample of their DNA, it goes into a government database. It’s to track us. They’re not just looking for the virus.”
Do you mean to tell me that medical scientists are going to come up with the exact vaccine needed to fight a disease that they have not even scientifically isolated and identified? And they are going to accomplish this Herculean task in only a few months? Are we living in the Twilight Zone? They can’t even guarantee that the flu shot you get is the exact formula for the specific strain of flu that you have—and they have been studying the flu virus for over 100 years.
How do you know that tracking technology will not be included in the COVID vaccine? How do you know that data mining capability will not be included in the COVID vaccine? How do you know that sterilization drugs will not be included in the COVID vaccine? The doctors who are shooting the vaccine into your arm won’t even know what’s in it.
Bill Gates has long advocated for population reduction via pharmaceuticals. We already know about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation collaborating with WHO and UNICEF to insert sterilization drugs into a Tetanus vaccine that was injected into women and girls in Kenya in 2014 and 2015. Over 500,000 Kenyan women and girls are reported to have been unwittingly sterilized by these vaccinations. Moreover, this was done in several African countries. (See this report.)
Do you really think that Bill Gates and his pharmaceutical Frankensteins like Fauci would have any qualms whatsoever about surreptitiously sterilizing American women and girls? Gates has partnered with at least 15 pharmaceutical companies and owns shares in a dozen more.
And Fauci is merely a carnival monkey for Gates.
There is no doubt that Bill Gates will be directly and intricately involved in the COVID vaccine that will be approved for distribution—making him billions of dollars in the process, of course.
But the COVID vaccine is only the beginning.
Corporations will use Gates’ 5G surveillance system to sell products and escalate AI capacity. Governments will use it to transition the globe to a totalitarian singularity more despotic than Orwell ever imagined. Silicon Valley titans like Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, and Google’s Chief Engineer Ray Kurzweil talk longingly of “transhumanism,” the process by which humanity will transition to become part-human, part-machine via genetic engineering and surgical implants.
Bill Gates is investing heavily to accelerate this altered reality. His ambition to tag us all with injected subdermal vaccine data chips seems to be merely a steppingstone toward an all-encompassing surveillance state.
Gates will even control your body, your bedroom, your medicine cabinet and even women’s menstrual and ovulation cycles. He invested approximately $18 million in MicroCHIPS, a company that among other chip-based devices, develops birth-control implant chips with wireless on/off switches and chips for drug-delivery that allow a single implant to store and precisely deliver hundreds of therapeutic doses over months or years. The implants will be operated wirelessly by the patient to deliver medication. Knowing of Gates’ missionary zeal for population control, however, some customers might worry that the system could be remotely activated as well.
Ron Paul is absolutely right: “We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes.”
The American people need to start fighting back NOW. Throw away those stupid masks. Refuse to wear them. Tell your doctor you’ll come see him or her again when they don’t force you to wear a mask. Same thing for any restaurant or grocery store you do business with. Masks not only do not protect against viruses, they may actually be harmful to the wearer.
But what mandated masks do—and this is their purpose—is condition the public to accept the forthcoming mandated corona vaccination.
Show up at every city council meeting, every county commission meeting and every health board meeting. Demand that they release our country from the manacles of these maniacal medical miscreants.
Wake up, folks! This is a war! This is a war for our Liberty, our way of life, our children’s future and, yes, for life itself.
To again quote Dr. Paul, “Will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?”
Well, if they don’t, they very soon won’t have any liberty left for which to fight.
P.S. I urge readers to watch the message I delivered last Sunday entitled How Long Are Christians Going To Do Nothing While Waiting For A False Rapture?
In this message, I explain how God is taking America’s Liberty away from us due to the negligence, indifference and disobedience of the Church in America. The hope for America has never been in the White House; it has always been in the Church House. This message ties so many things together.
This is one of the most relevant and important messages I’ve ever delivered. I urge readers to watch it here.

By the day if not by the hour, conservative movement champion former Congressman Steve Stockman’s situation grows perilously close to a death sentence.
Steve is the only over-60 diabetic prisoner remaining at the Beaumont, Texas federal prison facility, which also has the highest per capita COVID-19 infection rate of any prison in the country.
And he’s been told by prison officials he will not be leaving on orders “straight from the top” in Washington!!!
It’s clear someone wants him dead.
Someone in Washington is ordering that his life not be saved by being released to home detention.
There needs to be investigations into who it is.
My July 8 article explained why Steve and Roger Stone were American political prisoners. Roger’s sentence has since been commuted. Steve’s situation, on the other hand, has gotten worse.
As of July 14, the number of prisoners infected with COVID-19 at the Beaumont prison facility where he is located was 432, up from the 180 I reported earlier this month.
Steve’s age (63), multiple co-morbidities (diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, asthma, and more), and the nonviolent, non-sexual nature of his conviction (charges after three grand juries refused to indict him, involving campaign finance and fundraising from two wealthy Republican donors, neither of whom filed complaints) clearly make him eligible for release to home detention, consistent with a March 26 directive from Attorney General William Barr to the Director of the Bureau of Prisons for “at risk” inmates.
And despite the known positive benefits of sunlight to fight off coronavirus, Steve has not been allowed outside in many weeks.
Given his age and health, Steve is a sitting duck in the COVID-19-ravaged Beaumont prison.
Releasing Steve to home detention would be a no-brainer. A UCLA COVID-19 Behind Bars Data Project reports that over 70,000 people have been released from jail due to the COVID-19 threat, and over 33,000 released from prison consistent with federal “compassion” guidelines directed by a very law-and-order Attorney General, William Barr.
Steve has filed and even re-filed the papers for release to home confinement, including a petition for “Compassionate Release” he filed with Warden F. J. Garrido on April 4, to which Garrido responded on April 20. Steve was told on April 24 he’d be placed in pre-release quarantine, but was then turned away at the door by prison staff.
Soon after, and one more time since then, Steve was told by prison officials he will not be leaving on orders from the top.
On May 21 Warden Garrido wrote responding to someone inquiring about Steve’s release, noting that Attorney General Barr authorized the Director of the Bureau of Prisons to “maximize appropriate transfers to home confinements of all appropriate inmates” at certain prisons where “COVID-19 is materially affecting operations.”
Garrido’s letter goes on to say the Beaumont prison “will take swift action to exercise its expanded home confinement authority for any inmate who is found to be at risk for COVID-19 and suitable for home confinement.”
Steve fits the criteria for release to home detention. The directions “from the top” that he not be released is a death sentence.
Dead men, after all, tell no tales.
Indeed, after publication of various articles describing his unfair politicized treatment in the justice system, Steve was told by one prison official that he has a “publicity problem.”
One time Steve was sent to solitary confinement. Shortly after he was placed in a jail cell with a notorious murderer.
Why is Steve Stockman being treated in such an obviously discriminatory and almost certainly deadly way?
Writing in The Washington Times, Rebecca Hagelin explained:
The 2018 criminal trial of Stockman has laid bare the underbelly of political targeting by the Obama administration’s Department of Justice. As a congressman, Stockman had exposed many instances of high-level corruption by Obama officials. His ability to chase down and hold accountable Obama officials is legendary. Stockman called for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric H. Holder for obstruction of justice and contempt of Congress.
Over at The Epoch Times, Matthew Vadum reported how Steve’s many supporters in the conservative movement described him as “a victim of a complex, politically motivated runaway prosecution” who “is being punished for his zealous pursuit of Obama-era wrongdoings.”
Former prosecutor Rachel Alexander writing at Townhall.com said:
[Steve] was known for boldly opposing President Obama. He was a Congressional whistleblower on Obama administration corruption, with such actions as calling for the House Select Committee to investigate the government’s handling of the Benghazi embassy tragedy of lost American lives, exposing President Obama’s payment to the Haqqani terrorist network in exchange for the release of Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, and revealing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Iran sanctions to allow the sale to Iran of specialized steel used in nuclear weaponry.
General Michael Flynn’s superstar lawyer Sidney Powell is quoted by Michael Tennant at The New American: “It is highly likely [the Justice Department Public Integrity Section] targeted former Congressman Stockman and have been extremely and unreasonably harsh toward him because he was so outspoken in trying to hold Lois Lerner, the Clintons, and Obama accountable.”
Steve’s enemies in the Deep State go right to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Steve pushed to expose their ties to Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk.
Pinchuk was the largest non-state donor to the Clinton Foundation, donating between $10,000,000 and $25,000,000 according to ABC News. His Interpipe company engaged in possibly illegal Iranian pipeline transactions under Hillary’s watch and approval while she was Secretary of State. Rory Ross at Newsweek wrote in 2015:
In November 2014 . . . Steve Stockman wrote to the US Department of the Treasury, questioning Interpipe’s dealings with Iran.
Newsweek has seen a copy of that letter, in which Stockman refers to a “body of evidence” detailing “exports from Interpipe to Iranian entities” that “may have contravened US sanctions to Iran”.
All this stinks, of course, and fits with the larger exposure of how the corrupt Deep State under the Obama administration and the corrupt Clinton rein at the State Department used nefarious government tactics to target their political enemies.
Steve Stockman was an outspoken critic of their corruption, and now someone in Washington’s Deep State wants their political prisoner to die in jail, when instead he should be released to home detention.
Conservatives take action; protect life, especially for those who can’t help themselves:
The entire conservative movement needs to demand investigations into who ordered what is essentially a death sentence for Steve Stockman.
Please reach out to people you know, and who know that corruption exists in the Deep State: Attorney General Bill Barr, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Republican senators, and conservative or even any honest independent journalists.
Ask them, who is executing Steve Stockman? We want names.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr
950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20530
Phone: (202) 353-1555
Chief of Staff Mark Meadows
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Also, please contact the two Bureau of Prisons officials below, who are or may be likely to know who has ordered that Steve Stockman remain in prison even though he is highly at risk in the COVID-19-infested Beaumont prison.
Tell them that we want names, and that we will push for investigations into major abuses in the prison system, including at Beaumont.

POSTED BY Ron Paul July 13, 2020
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly both recently denied that the Federal Reserve’s policies create economic inequality. Unfortunately for Powell, Daly, and other Fed promoters, a cursory look at the Fed’s operations shows that the central bank is the leading cause of economic inequality.
The Federal Reserve manipulates the money supply by buying and selling government securities.
This means that when the Fed decides to pump money into the economy, it does so by putting it in the pockets of wealthy, and oftentimes politically-connected, investors who are able to spend the new money before the Fed’s actions result in widespread inflation. Wealthy individuals also tend to be among the first to invest in the bubbles that form when the Fed distorts interest rates, which are the price of money. These investors may lose some money when the bubble bursts, but these losses are usually outweighed by their gains, so they end up profiting from the Fed-created boom-bubble-bust cycle.
In contrast, middle-class Americans lose jobs as well as savings, houses, and other assets when bubbles burst. They will also not benefit as much as the rich and well-connected from government bailouts and stimulus schemes. Middle- and working-class Americans also suffer from a steady erosion of their standard of living because of the Fed’s devaluation of the currency. This is the reason why so many Americans rely on credit cards to cover routine expenses. The Federal Reserve is thus the reason why total US credit card debt is almost one trillion dollars.
Big-spending politicians are also beneficiaries of the fiat money system. The Fed’s purchases of US debt enable Congress to massively increase welfare and warfare spending without increasing taxes to politically unacceptable levels. The people pay for the welfare-warfare state via the Fed’s hidden and regressive inflation tax.
Low interest rates also benefit politicians by keeping the federal government’s interest payments low. This is an unstated reason why the Fed will keep interest rates near zero or even lower interest rates below zero.
In response to the government-caused economic collapse, the Federal Reserve increased the money supply by about a trillion dollars from mid-April to early June. In contrast, it took the Fed all of 2019 to grow the money supply by 921 billion dollars. Even before the lockdown, the Fed was massively intervening in the economy in a futile attempt to prevent economic crisis.
A coming crisis will likely be triggered by a collapse in the dollar’s value and a rejection of the dollar’s world reserve currency status. The economic collapse will be worse than the Great Depression. This will result in widespread violence along with government crackdowns on liberties, accelerating the US slide into authoritarianism. The only way to avoid this is for Congress to make drastic cuts in spending — starting with defunding the military-industrial complex — and to audit then end the Fed.

This Saturday, July 4, America celebrates the 244th anniversary of the adoption of our Declaration of Independence.
On July 4, 1837, John Quincy Adams said these words about Independence Day:
Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [Independence Day]? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies, announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before?
Notice that Adams said that our Declaration of Independence exhibits four major accomplishments:
1. It formed a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation.
2. It first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth.
3. It laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.
4. It was the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior.
Adams was exactly right. The United States of America is the only nation in human history established by (mostly) Christian people upon 2,000 years of Christian thought—including being formed as a direct result of the Protestant Reformation—and God’s Natural Law principles and dedicated to the purpose of religious and personal liberty and equal justice under the law.
Not long ago, I was interviewed for another documentary movie (I’m featured in 14 full-length documentary films). The producer asked me to iterate the basic principles upon which America was founded. Based on my study of the Declaration, Constitution, Bill of Rights and the copious supplemental writings of the Founding Fathers, here, I believe, are the principles upon which America was founded:
1. That man is created equal under God, and as such, human life is a sacred gift of God.
2. That the Natural rights of the individual are inalienable and superior to the will of the state.
3. That government exists to protect the Natural rights and liberties of man, not to provide man with public benefits and favors.
4. That a man is innocent until proven guilty, that he has the Natural right to a trial by jury and the right to a defense attorney.
5. That people have a Natural right to choose their own form of government.
6. That individuals have a Natural right and duty to bear arms for their own protection.
7. That the power and reach of the central government needs to be limited, being held in check by independent sovereign states and a well regulated and fully equipped militia.
8. That religious liberty is the core of America’s freedoms.
9. That the people have a Natural right and duty to alter or abolish any government that has become tyrannical.
10. That America would always be a constitutional republic.
11. That only sound money would be used as legal tender so as to keep the federal government from amassing excessive debt.
12. That America would always promote and protect a free market economy with limited governmental interference.
13. That a man’s home is his castle and his personal property can never be seized except by arduous due process.
(I’m in the process of reproducing the work of one of America’s most important—and least remembered—Founding Fathers: James Otis. This new book will also include a brief biography of this great man. Perhaps more than any other founder, James Otis was responsible for America’s respect for the sacred principles enshrined in our Fourth Amendment. Watch for this new book here.)
14. That a free society depends upon the acceptance and application of God’s Natural Laws relating to the pursuit of happiness and peace, upon governmental adherence to the Law of Nations and upon upholding our Creator’s foundational moral code relating to human behavior.
15. That liberty depends upon the unfettered exercise of the Christian religion, including strong, uninhibited preaching from America’s pulpits.
The Declaration begins:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The Declaration ends:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
Here are a few statements from America’s founders after the Declaration was approved by Congress:
John Hancock said, “There! His Majesty can now read my name without spectacles. And he can double the reward on my head.” (The Crown had put a reward of 500 pounds sterling on Hancock’s head. That amounts to over $100,000 in today’s money.)
George Washington said, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”
Thomas Paine said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”
Stephen Hopkins, a signer of the Declaration from Rhode Island, said as he signed the document, “My hand trembles, but my heart does not.”
Indeed, Hopkins (and the rest of the signers) had reason to tremble. Of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, nine died of wounds or hardships during the war. Five were captured, imprisoned and tortured. Several lost wives, children or entire families. Two wives were brutalized and tortured. All were, at one time or another, the victims of manhunts and driven from their homes by British soldiers. Twelve signers had their homes completely burned. Seventeen lost everything they owned.
Carter Braxton, a wealthy planter and merchant, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts and died in rags.
Thomas McKean was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family constantly. He served in Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were seized by the British, and he died in poverty.
At the Battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr. noted that British General Cornwallis was using his home for his headquarters. Out of respect to Nelson, General Washington refused to fire on the dwelling. Nelson privately urged Washington to open fire on his home, saying it was no longer his home but was now the headquarters of the enemy. The home was subsequently destroyed. Nelson died bankrupt.
Frances Lewis had his home and properties destroyed by the British. They jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year, he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and all of his 13 children vanished. He never saw them again.
The two patriots most responsible for the Declaration of Independence, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, both died on the same day: July 4, 1826—the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration. Daniel Webster gave the eulogy for both men on August 2 of that year. He concluded his remarks with these words:
“It [the Declaration of Independence] is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God, it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now and independence forever.”
Amen! This should be the living and dying sentiment of every American:
Independence now and independence forever.
P.S. This is the FINAL NOTICE that we are currently distributing the most important liberty documents in U.S. history. This giant volume is called THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.
Want to honor Independence Day? Buy your family and friends a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS. Help teach them what Independence Day is truly all about—from the words of the men and women who were there. It is no hyperbole to say that without a familiarity with these great documents of American liberty and independence, one cannot truly understand and appreciate what Independence Day really means to us Americans.
This giant book is an excellent resource for high school and college students—as well as homeschoolers. Teachers, professors, physicians, engineers, business owners, attorneys, judges and pastors have purchased THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS with extreme satisfaction.
The Tennessee State Supreme Court ordered several copies of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS not long ago. Plus, a county sheriff in Montana recently ordered copies for each of his deputies. I believe you will be just as pleased as they are with this wonderful compilation of American documents.
You can have these great documents at your fingertips in one beautifully bound, easy-to-read format. These are the documents that gave birth to the greatest free nation on earth. To teach your children and grandchildren the truth about Independence Day, give them a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.
Again, nowhere else can you find these documents complete in one volume under one title. And this is the FINAL NOTICE for this printing. Our supply will be gone in a few days.
Order THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS now.
Plus, we have been informed by the publisher that so many people have responded to our offer of the Matthew Henry Study Bible that we have exhausted the available stock.
Therefore, this notice is to inform readers that we now have fewer than 100 copies of the Matthew Henry Study Bible left, and when these are gone, there will be no more available until a new batch can be printed—probably around November.
I’m offering this study Bible, because it is the one comprehensive study Bible that does not promote Christian Zionism. Beyond that, the Matthew Henry commentaries on the Bible (written from 1708 – 1710) are yet today the gold standard of Bible commentaries.
If you want a copy of this magnificent study Bible, order NOW, as these remaining copies will not last long.

The recent upheaval on the streets of America, ignited by the brutal and despicable murder of a black man by a few rogue Minneapolis police officers, has caused untold physical and emotional damage, and has widened the rift between the police and the citizens they are supposed to serve and protect. Many suggestions on how to fix things have come from insiders and outsiders alike.
I’d like to offer my own thoughts on how to help heal the wounds internally, as well as help to bridge the confidence gap between those who wear the uniform and the citizens of America. I served in various capacities as a sworn officer for the Mesa, Arizona Police Department for twenty years ending in 1998. Since that time I have associated with and peace officers regularly and I continue to teach firearms classes on occasion. With that background, and noting that, until very recently, most of the suggestions to improve policing have involved looking forward to new policing models and policing technology, I’d like to suggest that mayors, city councils, police and Sheriffs Office command staffs pause and take a look back.
One thing first
But before we do, I must address the most wild, dangerous, unwise and hateful idea that has ever been thrown down, almost as a gauntlet, to affect change. And that idea is that Americans defund or totally disband their police departments and sheriffs’ offices.
First of all, the idea itself is a part of a plan to eliminate local and independent law enforcement agencies from their positions as the guardians of freedom and the protectors of American exceptionalism. Some of the specifics that have been suggested to flush out this crazy notion involve turning the people, formerly police officers, who respond to domestic disputes and mentally ill persons who might or might not be violent, into social workers who wear blazers or cardigans instead of gun belts, and hand out lollipops. This drastic reduction or total elimination of the numbers of current police officers, who are trained, prepared and equipped to handle whatever might evolve in a situation has already happened in America, and more than once. One look back at the police pull-back after the riots in Ferguson, Missouri or Baltimore, or other similar situations, should be stark proof that this idea is bonkers. And let me say right now, that some – though not all – of the police actions that sparked such anger and outrage in our citizens, deserved strong opposition and strong discipline or prosecution against the specific police officers who were involved. The few bad cops in America tarnish the badge, which is called a shield for a reason. Immediately after police held back and did not respond to most calls for service for fear of being attacked and/or accused of wrong-doing, crime rates, including murders in those cities, spiked dramatically upward. Innocent beleaguered families begged for more policing, not less, in crime-ridden cities, including Chicago, which gets my vote for the murder capital of America.
It is encouraging to see that the vast majority of Americans, of whatever political persuasion or racial group, soundly reject such an insane idea.
Back to the Future
Let’s look back to a time when the cop on the beat actually knew some of the families who lived in the area where he served, and some of them knew him or her – by name. Back to a time when police training actually featured the word servant. Back to a time where citizens would actually come to the aid of an officer who was struggling with a suspect with no back-up. Back to a time when on a Christmas day, a father would come out of his house, flag down the beat officer driving by, and invite him to come in and have Christmas dinner with the family. Both of these stories actually happened to me while on duty.
So let’s return to a time when many cop cars sported the words: In God We Trust, somewhere on their exterior, and a time when virtually every city and county police patrol car in the nation carried on its driver’s door, the motto: To Protect and Serve.
To Protect and Serve.
American cops came face-to-face with this pledge every time they hit the streets after briefing and it meant something. That motto has been missing from patrol cars for many years. As far as I knew from interactions in mundane as well as life-or-death interactions with my academy class- mates, we were all believers in the fact that our mission was to do just one thing, though in many different ways. And that one thing was to protect the God-given individual rights of our citizens. We were called “peace officers” in the state standards, and that, too, meant something. The culture of servant-policing was handed down from the top, and we were taught that our mission was to be first, a shield, and only if necessary, a sword. And when we used the sword, it was only when we were protecting citizens’ rights, not just to show our power.
Of course, our service and protection to the community was many times anything but peaceful. But it was always our goal. The 1957 Law Enforcement Officers Code of Ethics, which we all pledged to follow, was given to each of us. In part, it said:
“As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality, and justice.
I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all and will behave in a manner that does not bring discredit to me or to my agency…I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession… law enforcement.”
(This powerful and personal pledge of service has, sadly, been replaced, in many agencies, by the Law Enforcement Code of Conduct, which has removed the references to God, and other parts of the original.) That was the general state of law enforcement for the nation. But more than that, our own General Orders Manual, featured the following orders from the command staff to all personnel:
“The application and enforcement of the law must be accomplished in the spirit set forth by the framers of the Constitution. The rights of each citizen are equal with those of the state, which might accuse him.” ~Mesa PD Gen. Order 01.103~
“A frequent recurrence to fundamental principles is essential to the security of individual rights and the perpetuity of a free state.” ~Art. 2, Sec. 1, Arizona Constitution~
“Officers should display a reverence for the legal rights of all citizens and a reverence for the law itself.” ~Mesa PD Gen. Order 01.103.B.4~
“Enforcement action should not be taken in grudging adherence to the rights of the accused, but in the spirit of ensuring that the rights of accused persons are protected by the police.” ~Mesa PD Gen. Order 01.103.B.3~
“All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.” ~Art. 2, Sec. 2, Arizona constitution~
“We love peace, as we abhor pusillanimity; but not at any price. There is a peace more destructive of the manhood of man than war is destructive of his material body. Chains are worse than bayonets.” ~Douglas Jerrold (1803-1857)~
Sadly, these general orders aren’t a part of the MPD Manual today. Contemporary training of recruit officers is much different, and militarism has crept in, along with the idea that cops are better than the citizens, and must supervise them. Not every cop has this attitude, but too many display it regularly. Recent use-of-force incidents demonstrate the fact that the servant mentality is on life support. These orders, or their equivalent, should be part of every officer’s training.
This servant culture can be reinstituted in American policing, but like those early years, it must begin in the recruit training academy, and must come from the top down. Culture is contagious.
In Part 2, we will present specific and necessary training curriculum ideas that can reform and serve as a course correction maneuver for American Policing.

On the heels of government lockdowns of almost the entire country over the coronavirus, we are now witnessing nationwide riots over a Minneapolis policeman’s murder of George Floyd—and, predictably, Donald Trump is threatening to invoke the Insurrection Act and turn the U.S. military loose on the protesters and rioters.
From before Trump was inaugurated, I tried to warn people that 1) He has zero understanding of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, and 2) He is a tyrant at heart. Again and again, Donald Trump has proven me right on both counts—not that it matters to a hill of beans to the vast majority of Christians and conservatives.
In fact, at least 50% of the American people—mostly Christians and conservatives, of course—WANT Trump to unleash the U.S. Armed Forces on the American citizenry. But there is no provision in the Constitution for the federal government to be involved in local and State law enforcement. Law enforcement is strictly the responsibility of the states and local communities.
Attorney John Whitehead has the best summary of the George Floyd tragedy that I’ve read to date:
There is something being concocted in the dens of power, far beyond the public eye, and it doesn’t bode well for the future of this country.
Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by political theater and public spectacle that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware.
Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware.
And anytime you have a government so far removed from its people as to ensure that they are never seen, heard or heeded by those elected to represent them, you’d better beware.
What is unfolding before us is not a revolution.
The looting, the burning, the rioting, the violence: this is an anti-revolution.
The protesters are playing right into the government’s hands, because the powers-that-be want this. They want an excuse to lockdown the nation and throw the switch to all-out martial law. They want a reason to make the police state stronger.
It’s happening faster than we can keep up.
The architects of the police state have us exactly where they want us: under their stamping boot, gasping for breath, desperate for freedom, grappling for some semblance of a future that does not resemble the totalitarian prison being erected around us.
For just one fleeting moment, “we the people” seemed united in our outrage over this latest killing of an unarmed man by a cop hyped up on his own authority and the power of his uniform.
That unity didn’t last.
Indeed, it didn’t take long—no surprise there—for us to quickly become divided again, polarized by the misguided fury and senseless violence of mobs taking to the streets, reeking of madness and mayhem.
Deliberately or not, the rioters have directed our attention away from the government’s crimes and onto their own.
This is a distraction.
Don’t allow yourself to be so distracted.
Let’s not lose sight of what started all of this in the first place: the U.S. government.
More than terrorism, more than domestic extremism, more than gun violence and organized crime, the systemic violence being perpetrated by agents of the government constitutes a greater menace to the life, liberty and property of its citizens than any of the so-called dangers from which the government claims to protect us.
Case in point: George Floyd died at the hands of the American police state.
The callous, cold-blooded murder of the unarmed, 46-year-old black man by police is nothing new: for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, police knelt on Floyd’s neck while the man pleaded for his life, struggled to breathe, cried out for his dead mother, and finally passed out and died.
Floyd is yet another victim of a broken system of policing that has placed “we the people” at the mercy of militarized cops who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”
Daily, Americans are being shot, stripped, searched, choked, beaten and tasered by police for little more than daring to frown, smile, question, challenge an order or just exist.
I’m talking about the growing numbers of unarmed people who are being shot and killed for just standing a certain way, or moving a certain way, or holding something—anything—that police could misinterpret to be a gun, or igniting some trigger-centric fear in a police officer’s mind that has nothing to do with an actual threat to their safety.
Killed by police for standing in a “shooting stance.” Killed for holding a cell phone. Killed for holding a baseball bat. Killed for opening the front door. Killed for being a child in a car pursued by police. Killed for approaching police while holding a metal spoon. Killed for running in an aggressive manner while holding a tree branch. Killed for crawling around naked. Killed for hunching over in a defensive posture. Killed because a police officer accidentally fired his gun instead of his taser. Killed for wearing dark pants and a basketball jersey. Killed for reaching for his license and registration during a traffic stop. Killed for driving while deaf. Killed for being homeless. Killed for brandishing a shoehorn. Killed for peeing outdoors. Killed for having his car break down on the road. Killed for holding a garden hose.
Now you can make all kinds of excuses to justify these shootings, and in fact that’s exactly what you’ll hear from politicians, police unions, law enforcement officials and individuals who are more than happy to march in lockstep with the police. However, as these incidents make clear, the only truly compliant, submissive and obedient citizen in a police state is a dead one.
Sad, isn’t it, how quickly we have gone from a nation of laws—where the least among us had just as much right to be treated with dignity and respect as the next person (in principle, at least)—to a nation of law enforcers (revenue collectors with weapons) who treat us all like suspects and criminals?
This is not how you keep the peace.
This is not justice. This is not even law and order.
This is certainly not freedom. This is the illusion of freedom.
Fortunately, not everyone who wears a badge has bought into the Police State. There are still real lawmen such as Chattanooga, Tennessee, Police Chief David Roddy.
Chattanooga Police Department Chief David Roddy said police officers who didn’t see an issue with the graphic video that showed former Minneapolis police officer David Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck as the 46-year-old repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe,” should quit the force.
“There is no need to see more video. There is no need to wait to see how “it plays out”. There is no need to put a knee on someone’s neck for NINE minutes. There IS a need to DO something. If you wear a badge and you don’t have an issue with this…turn it in,” Roddy wrote.
God bless the wonderful law enforcement officers of this country represented by Chief Roddy.
Here are bullet points of the current government-manipulated “emergency” that you need to recognize:
*People in Minneapolis and all over America were absolutely RIGHT to be incensed at another unarmed, helpless American citizen being murdered at the hands of a police thug. This goes on almost daily all across this country.
As I understand it, this man was apprehended on suspicion of buying cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. Ladies and gentlemen, that is not a capital offense in this country. And even if his crime had been a capital offense, the arresting officer has no right to take the life of the individual (who is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law) unless he does so in self-defense. And a handcuffed man lying on the ground posed absolutely no risk to the life of the officer in Minneapolis who killed this suspect.
As does Mr. Whitehead, I keep a running report of the growing police abuses that are taking place on a daily basis in this country. If reading the accounts of everyday police abuse that take place all over America doesn’t make your blood boil, you are NOT an American at heart and have no right to claim you love Liberty and constitutional government.
This is flat unacceptable, inexcusable and unforgivable. And, as I said, it goes on all of the time.
It’s time that Christians and conservatives get over their love affair with all things police and military and fall in love again with Liberty and the Natural rights of man protected in our Bill of Rights. It’s time to demand constitutional law enforcement in our states and local communities.
Officers from the US police force responsible for the killing of George Floyd received training in restraint techniques and anti-terror tactics from Israeli law-enforcement officers.
Mr Floyd’s death in custody last Monday, the latest in a succession of police killings of African Americans, has sparked continuing protests and rioting in US cities.
At least 100 Minnesota police officers attended a 2012 conference hosted by the Israeli consulate in Chicago, the second time such an event had been held.
There they learned the violent techniques used by Israeli forces as they terrorise the occupied Palestinian territories under the guise of security operations.
The so-called counterterrorism training conference in Minneapolis was jointly hosted by the FBI.
I have documented several times in this column how U.S. law enforcement personnel are increasingly receiving training from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Our police officers are being trained by the terrorists of Tel Aviv in the terrible art of torture and death.
This knee-on-neck technique is straight out of the Israeli handbook. This technique is often known to slowly break the necks of the victims. And this training is widespread throughout the United States. Hundreds—maybe thousands—of American law enforcement officers from Minnesota, New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Georgia, Washington State and Washington, D.C. (and doubtless many other states), have been flown to Israel for training.
*There is no doubt whatsoever that agent provocateurs from the federal government are in the thick of these riots, helping to fan the flames of hate and discontent in order to create enough mayhem to “justify” the government’s use of military force and martial law against the American citizenry.
The lockdowns from the coronavirus have barely started to lift when the government has created another reason to lock us down. This is no coincidence. These government mobsters go from crisis to crisis, emergency to emergency, to justify their burgeoning Police State. Now that the corona “pandemic” has been exposed as a big, fat con job, the power elite must manufacture another crisis.
*Since the beginning of time, it has been the responsibility and duty of the individual to protect himself, his family, his property and his community. I’ve said it a thousand times, and I’ll say it again: It is not the job of the government to protect you. It is your job to protect yourself.
The riots breaking out all over the country PROVE the necessity of the right of the people to keep and bear arms, they PROVE the necessity of people owning and possessing AR-15-style semi-automatic rifles with large-capacity magazines and they PROVE the necessity of people owning and possessing Glock semi-automatic pistols with large-capacity magazines.
When we refuse to arm ourselves, when we refuse to be prepared to defend ourselves with the arms we possess and when we expect the government (especially the federal government and, GASP, the U.S. military) to defend us, we have voluntarily put the chains of tyranny around our own necks. And that’s exactly what many people—including Christians and conservatives—are doing right now.
And that’s another reason they love Donald Trump. Trump openly calls for military aggression around the world and here at home, and Christians love him for it. There is no doubt, if Trump sends the U.S. armed forces to attack American citizens, and he locks down city after city under the jackboots of martial law, Christians will love him even more.
I am convinced, a sizable percentage of today’s evangelical Christians have a tyranny wish; they have a death wish. They are cheering their own enslavement.
*The use of military forces for domestic law enforcement activity is strictly taboo in America.
The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the U.S. military from taking part in domestic law enforcement activities, and the Insurrection Act requires that a State legislature or governor request help from Washington before any such help could be given. And even at that point, the duties of military personnel are strictly limited.
Beyond that, the very thought of using the U.S. military for domestic law enforcement should send chills down the spine of any real American. The last thing we should ever want to see is military personnel aiming their guns at the American people—FOR ANY REASON. In truth, no REAL American serving in the U.S. Armed Forces would obey such an order; and no REAL American military officer would give such an order.
We’ve been through this before—but that was before the Fourth Member of the Godhead, Donald Trump, was president. With Trump in the White House, many evangelicals are more than willing to throw away the Constitution and rule of law. In fact, they have already done just that.
One thing I’m sure of: This latest “emergency” following so closely on the heels of the coronavirus “emergency” is no coincidence. The people of America are being played; they are being professionally “set up” by out-of-control, power-mad despots who will stop at nothing to destroy the constitutionally protected liberties of this country.
That governors throughout the U.S. are canceling Independence Day parades this July is about a whole lot more than the almost non-existent coronavirus. You can count on that. These perfidious governors want to wipe the memory of Liberty out of our minds.
John Whitehead is right: What we are witnessing is a prelude to martial law.
Folks, stop depending on Donald Trump—and the rest of those criminals in D.C.—to save your Freedom. The power to defend Liberty rests where it has always rested: with We the People. Freedom is seldom taken; it is given away. If WE refuse to give it, NO ONE can take it.
P.S. Next Monday, June 8, is the 53rd anniversary of the act of war committed by Israel against the United States in the unprovoked attack of the USS Liberty. I am committed to doing everything I can to not let the memory of this horrific attack die. I have joined with my friend and survivor of the Liberty attack, Ron Kukal, to help spread the word about the truth of this attack far and wide.
Ron and some of his fellow survivors wrote a book that every American MUST read. It is entitled Remember The LIBERTY! This book exposes one of the most explosive and hidden secrets in U.S. history. It tells the true story of how a sitting U.S. president collaborated with Israeli leaders in the fomentation of a war between them and their Arab neighbors. It was a war that was deliberately designed to include the theft of Arab land.
Very few people in our country are even aware of what happened to the USS Liberty. But this story must get out. I urge you to buy a copy for yourself and one for as many friends as you can.
Plus, here is a recent address from another survivor of the Liberty attack and co-author of the book Remember The LIBERTY!, Ernie Gallo, that I urge you to read. He gives an urgent, heartfelt and truthful presentation that every American—especially every Christian—should read.
May God bless these dear men.

By Dr. Ron Paul, M.D., C4L Chairman
The Federal Reserve announced it will keep interest rates at or near zero until the economy recovers from the government-imposed shutdown. Following this announcement, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell urged Congress and the Trump administration to put aside any concerns about the deficit and spend whatever it takes to stimulate the economy and combat coronavirus.
The Federal Reserve previously announced it would make unlimited purchases of Treasury securities, thus encouraging Congress and the president to increase spending and debt. With some members of Congress talking about another multi-trillion-dollar stimulus bill, and with President Trump proposing a two trillion dollars infrastructure plan as a way to get Americans back to work, it is obvious, and not surprising, that Congress and President Trump gleefully agree with Powell’s advice.
Increasing the purchase of federal debt is not the only action the Fed has taken in a desperate attempt to keep the economy afloat. Since the coronavirus lockdowns began in early March, the Fed has greatly expanded its balance sheet. The Federal Reserve has also launched an unprecedented program to “loan” money directly to businesses.
While some states are beginning to end the lockdowns, it may be months or even another year before all the lockdowns are finally ended. It is unlikely that the economy will completely recover after the shutdown ends.
The economy was teetering on the brink of a recession months before anyone heard of coronavirus. Last September, a panicked Fed began emergency infusions of cash into the repurchasing market, which is where banks make short-term loans to each other. The Fed’s balance sheet expansion also began in September. The Fed was also pushing interest rates down before the coronavirus panic, and it will likely keep rates at or even below zero long after the crisis related to the shutdown subsides.
Economic stagnation combined with zero or negative interest rates remove incentive for people to save. This depletes the supply of private capital available to invest in businesses and jobs. The lack of private capital will put pressure on the Federal Reserve to maintain, and even expand, its new lending programs indefinitely.
Each of the Federal Reserve’s responses to the coronavirus shutdown increases the distortions of the market caused by the Federal Reserve’s meddling with the money supply and interest rates. These increased distortions guarantee the inevitable crash will be much more severe than the current downturn. The one upside is that the next meltdown will likely lead to the end of the fiat money system and thus the end of the welfare-warfare state.
The only way to minimize the coming crisis is to begin immediately unwinding the current system. The first step is to end the lockdown and let businesses reopen and people go back to work. Congress must then begin challenging monetary policy by passing the Audit the Fed bill. Congress should also cut spending, starting with ending our hyper-interventionist foreign policy and bringing the troops home. Ending the welfare-warfare state and the fiat money system may cause some short-term pain, but that pain will be dwarfed by the long-term gains in liberty, peace, and prosperity.
Remember all of the government bailouts and stimulus in response to the 2008 financial crisis? Conservatives threw a fit. The Tea Party movement grew out of worry about the impact of all of the stimulus, money-printing, and the taxes they knew were coming down the pike.
My, how things have changed in 12 short years — and with a Republican sitting in the Oval Office.
Today, pretty much everybody supports the stimulus and bailouts gushing out of Washington D.C. even though they dwarf anything imagined during the Obama administration.
“This is different!” so we’re told. Government policy set up the 2008 financial crisis and a lot of “bad actors” got bailed out. The Obama stimulus undermined the free market!
But now we’re being told that you can’t pin this economic meltdown on the government. You can’t blame anybody for coronavirus. This crisis really is too big for the free market to handle. Government needs to step in.
But the truth is big government set the stage for this economic meltdown just like it set the stage for the 2008 financial crisis. This is a prime example of the government breaking your legs and then giving you a wheelchair.
Don’t let the irony get lost on you. Government intervention in the economy set things up for a crisis like this. Now virtually everybody thinks we need the government because the free market can’t handle a crisis like this. Even people who claim to favor free markets are pushing for the bailouts.
A healthy economy could weather the coronavirus. In a truly free market, businesses and consumers would have savings. These government shutdowns would stress a healthy economy, but they wouldn’t kill it.
But we don’t have a free market.
We have a central bank that manipulates interest rates and a bloated government that taxes, borrows and spends us into oblivion. As a result, the United States went into the coronavirus pandemic with a bubble economy built on a mountain of debt.
By holding interest rates at artificially low levels for more than a decade after the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve incentivized borrowing. As a result, consumer debt, corporate debt and the national debt were all at record levels before COVID-19 reared its ugly head.
Meanwhile, the federal government was already spending trillions of dollars to prop up the economy. The Trump administration was on track to run a $1 trillion budget deficit in 2020 before the pandemic. This is the kind of budget deficit one would expect to see during a major economic downturn. The federal government has only run deficits over $1 trillion in four fiscal years, all during the Great Recession. The current Congress and the Trump administration were approaching that number before the pandemic, despite having what Trump kept calling “the greatest economy in the history of America.”
The Fed facilitates this deficit spending by monetizing the debt – buying U.S. Treasury bonds on the open market with money created out of thin air. Without the Fed backstopping the financial system and effectively printing money, the U.S. government wouldn’t have the ability to borrow and spend as it does.
Meanwhile, the tax burden necessary to sustain big-government spending policies stresses family and corporate budgets to the breaking point. When people have to hand a big percentage of their income to the taxman, it becomes that much more difficult to save for a rainy day – or a government shutdown of the economy.
And why save when you can borrow? Artificially low interest rates make it easy to borrow and pointless to save. You get no return on your savings. Might as well borrow and spend now.
This is all well-and-good until the economy hits a bump in the road like the coronavirus pandemic. Suddenly you have no income, no savings and a massive pile of debt. It doesn’t take long to go from a hiccup to a full-blown crisis.
This is where the United States finds itself today. After a decade of easy-money and borrowing, coupled with out of control spending in Washington D.C., the coronavirus shutdowns popped the economic bubble that the government helped create. Now the air is coming out and everybody is turning to the government to bail them out.
That’s not to say the coronavirus shutdowns would have been a walk in the park if the economy wasn’t already broken. But a healthy economy could have weathered the storm. If the Fed hadn’t intervened in the economy, people wouldn’t have been able to bury themselves in debt. If the government wasn’t levying high taxes on corporate earnings, companies would have had more money saved to push through a crisis. If people didn’t rely on government programs like Social Security for their savings, they could have saved money on their own and they would have had it to tap into during this crisis.
This is the exact same set of policies that set up the 2008 financial crisis. The government and the central bank doubled-down after ’08 with some political backlash from the right. This time, the government is quadrupling down with pretty much everybody on board. Peter Schiff summed up the situation perfectly in a recent podcast.
“It’s the government that crippled the economy in the first place. The solution – the answer to that – is not to have a bigger government crutch so we can hobble around. How about getting rid of all of that government? Liberating the economy from the dead weight of government.”
With the advent of the so-called COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a number of medical practices that have little or no scientific support as regards reducing the spread of this infection. One of these measures is the wearing of facial masks, either a surgical-type mask, bandana or N95 respirator mask.
When this pandemic began and we knew little about the virus itself or its epidemiologic behavior, it was assumed that it would behave, in terms of spread among communities, like other respiratory viruses. Little has presented itself after intense study of this virus and its behavior to change this perception.
This is somewhat of an unusual virus in that for the vast majority of people infected by the virus, one experiences either no illness (asymptomatic) or very little sickness. Only a very small number of people are at risk of a potentially serious outcome from the infection—mainly those with underlying serious medical conditions in conjunction with advanced age and frailty, those with immune compromising conditions and nursing home patients near the end of their lives. There is growing evidence that the treatment protocol issued to treating doctors by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mainly intubation and use of a ventilator (respirator), may have contributed significantly to the high death rate in these select individuals.
By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.
Russell Blaylock, MD
As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”1 Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission.
It is also instructive to know that until recently, the CDC did not recommend wearing a face mask or covering of any kind, unless a person was known to be infected, that is, until recently. Non-infected people need not wear a mask. When a person has TB we have them wear a mask, not the entire community of non-infected. The recommendations by the CDC and the WHO are not based on any studies of this virus and have never been used to contain any other virus pandemic or epidemic in history.
Now that we have established that there is no scientific evidence necessitating the wearing of a face mask for prevention, are there dangers to wearing a face mask, especially for long periods? Several studies have indeed found significant problems with wearing such a mask. This can vary from headaches, to increased airway resistance, carbon dioxide accumulation, to hypoxia, all the way to serious life-threatening complications.
There is a difference between the N95 respirator mask and the surgical mask (cloth or paper mask) in terms of side effects. The N95 mask, which filters out 95% of particles with a median diameter >0.3 µm2 , because it impairs respiratory exchange (breathing) to a greater degree than a soft mask, and is more often associated with headaches. In one such study, researchers surveyed 212 healthcare workers (47 males and 165 females) asking about presence of headaches with N95 mask use, duration of the headaches, type of headaches and if the person had preexisting headaches.2
They found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia). It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death.
A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask.3 Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance.
Unfortunately, no one is telling the frail elderly and those with lung diseases, such as COPD, emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis, of these dangers when wearing a facial mask of any kind—which can cause a severe worsening of lung function. This also includes lung cancer patients and people having had lung surgery, especially with partial resection or even the removal of a whole lung.
While most agree that the N95 mask can cause significant hypoxia and hypercapnia, another study of surgical masks found significant reductions in blood oxygen as well. In this study, researchers examined the blood oxygen levels in 53 surgeons using an oximeter. They measured blood oxygenation before surgery as well as at the end of surgeries.4 The researchers found that the mask reduced the blood oxygen levels (pa02) significantly. The longer the duration of wearing the mask, the greater the fall in blood oxygen levels.
The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. . This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.5,6,7
People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers.8,9 Repeated episodes of hypoxia has been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis and hence increases all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases.10
There is another danger to wearing these masks on a daily basis, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.
It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain.11,12 In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.13
It is evident from this review that there is insufficient evidence that wearing a mask of any kind can have a significant impact in preventing the spread of this virus. The fact that this virus is a relatively benign infection for the vast majority of the population and that most of the at-risk group also survive, from an infectious disease and epidemiological standpoint, by letting the virus spread through the healthier population we will reach a herd immunity level rather quickly that will end this pandemic quickly and prevent a return next winter. During this time, we need to protect the at-risk population by avoiding close contact, boosting their immunity with compounds that boost cellular immunity and in general, care for them.
One should not attack and insult those who have chosen not to wear a mask, as these studies suggest that is the wise choice to make.

Big-Pharma – guilty of lying, cheating, stealing, bribery, and a history of exposing the public to dangerous and even deadly drugs – is being given billions to develop a Covid-19 “vaccine.” Would you trust your health to these criminals?
Coronavirus Disease 2019 or “Covid-19″ hysteria is sweeping the globe – with mass media-induced public panic paralyzing entire nations, gutting economies of billions as workplaces are shutdown and the public shuttered indoors all while exposed to 24 hour news cycles deliberately fanning the flames of fear.
The West’s healthcare industry is already profiting both monetarily and in terms of artificial credibility as a panicked public turn to it for answers and safety. Waiting to cash in on offering “cures” and “vaccines” for a virus is the immensely corrupt Western pharmaceutical industry in particular – notorious corporations like GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Novartis, Bayer, Merck, Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer, Lilly, and Gilead.
All corporations – without exception – pursuing government-funded vaccines and therapies for Covid-19 are corporations guilty and repeatedly convicted in courts of law around the globe of crimes including falsifying research, safety, and efficacy studies, bribing researchers, doctors, regulators, and even law enforcement officials, and marketing drugs that were either entirely ineffective or even dangerous.
Government funding from taxpayers across the Western World are being funneled into supposedly non-profit organizations like the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI) which are in actuality fronts created and chaired by big-pharma to avoid investing their own money into costly research and development and simply profit from whatever emerges from state-funded research.
CEPI – for example – is receiving billions in government funds from various nations that will be used for R&D that results in products sold by and profited from big-pharma.
A particularly shocking and appalling example comes from Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis – who is currently attempting to ram through approval of its drug Jakafi as a therapy for severe Covid-19 patients.
A University of Pennsylvania team headed by Dr. Carl June and funded entirely by charity had developed a gene therapy that fully and permanently cured leukemia patients who had otherwise failed to respond to more traditional treatments like bone marrow transplants. During early trials in 2010-2012, one patient – a 6 year old named Emily Whitehead – was literally on her death bed before receiving the revolutionary gene therapy. Today she is alive and well, in permanent remission.
What is more astounding about the therapy is that it is administered only one time. That is because after administration the patient’s cells are rewired permanently to fight off cancer. Old cells pass the cancer-fighting information off to new cells as they divide and multiply.
So the cost of goods, it’s interesting. The major cost here is gamma globulin. So the t-cells themselves, with us, for our in-house costs of an apheresis and so on is 15,000 dollars to manufacture the t-cells.
The charity that funded Dr. June’s team – Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) – would see its work sold off to Novartis, approved by the FDA in 2017 and marketed as Kymriah. What was noted by Dr. June himself as costing 15,000 USD to produce under experimental conditions was marked up by Novartis to an astronomical half-million dollars. The New York Times article that reported the drug’s cost never mentions the actual cost of the drug and instead defers to Novartis’ own explanation as to why the drug was so expensive.
The NYT had previously reported on the therapy’s progress before its acquisition by Novartis, yet NYT writers failed to hold Novartis accountable or inform readers of the actual cost of the therapy and expose price gouging by Novartis. This helps illustrate the mass media’s role in enabling and covering up for big-pharma’s corruption.
Upon closer examination – and no thanks to publications like NYT – it turns out LLS was and still is in partnership with Novartis and while it denied Novartis had anything to do with the gene therapy funded by LLS and ultimately sold to Novartis – the glaring conflict of interest remains and fits in perfectly with the wider pharmaceutical industry’s track record of corruption, abuse, and placing profits before human life.
The Novartis example is a microcosm of how the entire industry operates and indeed – precisely how it already is exploiting and profiting from Covid-19 hysteria where hard-working researchers have their work funded by shady “charities” only to be bought up by big-pharma and dangled over the heads of the desperate for movie-villain ransoms – all in cooperation with a complicit government and mass media.
Another pharmaceutical corporation seeking to profit from Covid-19 is GlaxoSmithKline. What those who may be exposed to whatever products GSK markets in response to the virus should know is that GSK has been convicted on every inhabited continent of the planet for operating a global bribery racket aimed at doctors, researchers, regulators, politicians, and even law enforcement officials.
GSK has been convicted in Asia. The New York Times in its article, “Drug Giant Faced a Reckoning as China Took Aim at Bribery,” would claim:
The Glaxo case, which resulted in record penalties of nearly $500 million and a string of guilty pleas by executives, upended the power dynamic in China, unveiling an increasingly assertive government determined to tighten its grip over multinationals. In the three years since the arrests, the Chinese government, under President Xi Jinping, has unleashed the full force of the country’s authoritarian system, as part of a broader agenda of economic nationalism.
GSK has also been convicted in North America. The London Guardian would report in its article GlaxoSmithKline fined $3bn after bribing doctors to increase drugs sales that:
The pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline has been fined $3bn (£1.9bn) after admitting bribing doctors and encouraging the prescription of unsuitable antidepressants to children. Glaxo is also expected to admit failing to report safety problems with the diabetes drug Avandia in a district court in Boston on Thursday.
The company encouraged sales reps in the US to mis-sell three drugs to doctors and lavished hospitality and kickbacks on those who agreed to write extra prescriptions, including trips to resorts in Bermuda, Jamaica and California.
GSK corruption also takes place in Europe. In early 2014, the London Telegraph would report in its article, “GlaxoSmithKline ‘bribed’ doctors to promote drugs in Europe, former worker claims,” that:
GlaxoSmithKline, Britain’s largest drug company, has been accused of bribing doctors to prescribe their medicines in Europe.
Doctors in Poland were allegedly paid to promote its asthma drug, Seretide, under the guise of funding for education programme, a former sales rep has claimed.
Medics were also said to have been paid for lectures in the country which did not take place.
And this is only scratching the surface of GSK’s bribery racket and associated impropriety – saying nothing of the wider industry’s abuse and corruption.
GSK is currently poised to develop and deploy a Covid-19 vaccine with Innovax. Will GSK’s history of bribery and corruption influence the development of a Covid-19 vaccine and its approval for public use?
There is already a convincing answer to that question.
Big-Pharma Already Caught Faking Pandemics to Fill Their Coffers
The last wave of hysteria regarding a pandemic came in the form of the 2009 H1N1 outbreak or the “swine flu.”
If one vaguely remembers H1N1 and needs to look it up to refresh their memory – it’s probably because it was not the pandemic it was promoted as at the time by corrupt public health officials and a complicit mass media.Among these corrupt public health officials were World Health Organization (WHO) “experts” who were in the pay of big-pharma and used their positions to declare the appearance of H1N1 as a “pandemic” justifying likewise paid-off governments to stockpile big-pharma medication for patients that never ended up needing them.
The BBC in their article, “WHO swine flu experts ‘linked’ with drug companies,” would admit:
Key scientists behind World Health Organization advice on stockpiling of pandemic flu drugs had financial ties with companies which stood to profit, an investigation has found.
The British Medical Journal says the scientists had openly declared these interests in other publications yet WHO made no mention of the links.
The BBC mentions GSK by name, noting (emphasis added):
…three scientists involved in putting together the 2004 guidance had previously been paid by Roche or GSK for lecturing and consultancy work as well as being involved in research for the companies.
Roche – also mentioned – currently produces Covid-19 test kits and is obviously making massive profits by selling them amid sustained hysteria over the “pandemic.” It also profited when WHO officials it was paying off declared H1N1 a “pandemic” in 2009. It sold testing kits and anti-viral medication that made their way into entirely unnecessary government stockpiles.
Reuters in a 2014 article titled, “Stockpiles of Roche Tamiflu drug are waste of money, review finds,” would note:
Researchers who have fought for years to get full data on Roche’s flu medicine Tamiflu said on Thursday that governments who stockpile it are wasting billions of dollars on a drug whose effectiveness is in doubt.
The article also noted:
Tamiflu sales hit almost $3 billion in 2009 – mostly due to its use in the H1N1 flu pandemic – but they have since declined.
Are we really going to allow these same corporations and the corrupt officials they are in league with among national and international bodies take the reins again amid Covid-19?
Serial Offenders Drive Covid-19 Hysteria
The same WHO – in partnership with the same serial offenders among the pharmaceutical industry – are now leading the response to Covid-19 – and the same complicit mass media that enabled the corruption and abuse of both in the past is helping fuel Covid-19 hysteria today to hand over unprecedented profits and power to these same interests that have repeatedly proven themselves in the past to not only be untrustworthy but also obstacles to – rather than the underwriters of – human health.
Soon, syringes will be filled with “vaccines” produced by this conglomerate of corruption and abuse, and the public told to roll up their sleeves and have themselves injected by substances created by literal criminals or else.
Under the illusion of legitimacy, science, and medicine, people will be pressured to submit to big-pharma and their co-conspirators within regulatory bodies, advisory organizations, the government, and the media, and whatever it is they actually fill these syringes with – whether it protects the public from Covid-19 or not – and whether such a vaccine is truly necessary or not.
While Covid-19 might be an actual pathogen, evidence suggests it does not warrant the overreaction we have seen worldwide. “Covid-19 hysteria” is – by far – having a much more devastating impact on humanity than the actual virus itself. Amid this hysteria, the biggest genuine threat to human health – a corrupt pharmaceutical industry and their partners in the government – are poised to expand both their profits at the expense of the public, and their power over the public.

Anyone who has bought into the hype that all of these government lockdowns, a ruined economy, suppression of our liberties and a total disruption of our way of life are for the purpose of saving lives has drunk some serious kool aid. We are supposed to believe that the same people who are enthusiastically promoting the killing of over 60 million unborn babies without so much as a modicum of conscience are somehow crying crocodile tears of compassion because people (including babies) MIGHT die from a flu-like virus? What poppycock!
As I pointed out in this column last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted that the corona scare was a government exercise (read: a practice run-through for something bigger). It was an exercise for total government control over our lives. This has been the agenda of Big Government statists in both political parties for decades. With constant fearmongering and hysteria from Big Government hacks in the mainstream media over the coronavirus, the power elite have taken the American people further down the road to serfdom and slavery than any previous attempt.
And I will say it again: This plan would not have worked had Donald Trump not been in the White House. This plan totally depended on evangelical pastors and churches sheepishly going along with it. This they would not have done had a liberal Democrat been in the White House. Are you kidding? Commanding churches to cancel their services—no communions, no baptisms, no Easter services—a total shutdown of houses of worship nationwide? Are you kidding me? You and I both know that if Hillary Clinton were president and she had said that no more than ten people could assemble in church—or anywhere else, for that matter—pastors and Christians would have protested in the streets and would have defiantly continued their public services en masse. But, because Donald Trump issued the declaration, almost the entire evangelical world bowed the knee to the state without a whimper.
The rest was easy. Restaurant closures, business closures, school closures, travel restrictions, rationed medical care and empty hospitals: Once evangelicals had been neutralized, there was no resistance.
Even so-called patriot leaders such as Oath Keepers Founder and President Stewart Rhodes joined the chorus of Big Government shills calling for government lockdown of our lives. Rhodes’ open letter to governors could have been easily written by Big Pharma Fascist Anthony Fauci.
By the way, on April 3—after reading Stewart’s Naziesque letter—I resigned my position as National Chaplain of Oath Keepers.
And speaking of Fauci, this little tyrant along with Mr. Global Government himself, Bill Gates, have positioned themselves to make billions of dollars in profits from government-mandated forced vaccinations, which they are both screaming for. And make no mistake about it: Anthony Fauci knows exactly what he’s doing.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (the son of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of former President John F. Kennedy and Chairman of Children’s Health Defense) wrote:
Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed [sic] his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vaccination ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control of global health policy.
Gates’ obsession with vaccines seems to be fueled by a conviction to save the world with technology.
Promising his share of $450 million of $1.2 billion to eradicate polio, Gates took control of India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI), which mandated up to 50 doses (Table 1) of polio vaccines through overlapping immunization programs to children before the age of five. Indian doctors blame the Gates campaign for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017. In 2017, the Indian government dialed back Gates’ vaccine regimen and asked Gates and his vaccine policies to leave India. NPAFP rates dropped precipitously.
In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) reluctantly admitted that the global explosion in polio is predominantly vaccine strain. The most frightening epidemics in Congo, Afghanistan, and the Philippines, are all linked to vaccines. In fact, by 2018, 70% of global polio cases were vaccine strain.
In 2009, the Gates Foundation funded tests of experimental HPV vaccines, developed by Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) and Merck, on 23,000 young girls in remote Indian provinces.
Approximately 1,200 suffered severe side effects, including autoimmune and fertility disorders. Seven died. Indian government investigations charged that Gates-funded researchers committed pervasive ethical violations: pressuring vulnerable village girls into the trial, bullying parents, forging consent forms, and refusing medical care to the injured girls. The case is now in the country’s Supreme Court.
In 2010, the Gates Foundation funded a phase 3 trial of GSK’s experimental malaria vaccine, killing 151 African infants and causing serious adverse effects, including paralysis, seizure, and febrile convulsions, to 1,048 of the 5,949 children.
During Gates’ 2002 MenAfriVac campaign in Sub-Saharan Africa, Gates’ operatives forcibly vaccinated thousands of African children against meningitis. Approximately 50 of the 500 children vaccinated developed paralysis. South African newspapers complained, “We are guinea pigs for the drug makers.” Nelson Mandela’s former senior economist, Professor Patrick Bond, describes Gates’ philanthropic practices as “ruthless and immoral.”
In addition to using his philanthropy to control WHO, UNICEF, GAVI, and PATH, Gates funds a private pharmaceutical company that manufactures vaccines and is donating $50 million to 12 pharmaceutical companies to speed up development of a coronavirus vaccine. In his recent media appearances, Gates appears confident that the Covid-19 crisis will now give him the opportunity to force his dictatorial vaccine programs on all American children – and adults.
There you have it, folks. THAT’S the end game: forced vaccinations and total surveillance over our lives. The exercise in universal digital tracking (via cell phones) under the guise of protecting people from corona is already being practiced in Israel.
All of these media hacks fomenting panic and fear; all of these government lockdowns; all of these school closures, business closures and stay-at-home orders are NOT about protecting us from a flu virus. They are all about preparing us for mandated vaccines and total government surveillance and control over our lives—including our jobs, our families, our education, our religious practices, our medical care and our travel.
As it turns out, it looks like the tyrants don’t need to confiscate our firearms after all in order to enslave us. Pastors and churches are leading the way for America’s voluntary enslavement—all in the name of safety.
What was it that Benjamin Franklin said?
P.S. If you missed it, here is an excellent video from a 30-year veteran physician on how the CDC has instructed doctors to fudge corona death numbers upward on death certificates. This video has been viewed over 2 million times on various platforms. How good is it? It’s so good that Facebook is calling it “false news.”
As you can imagine, Dr. Bukacek is now the target of an orchestrated campaign by the liberal media to have her removed from her position on the local board of health.
We have created an online petition in support of Dr. Bukacek. I am asking all of my readers to please go vote in support of one of the finest medical doctors in the entire Flathead Valley (Montana). In fact, Dr. Bukacek is the reigning “Best Family Physician of the Flathead” as voted by residents. And, no, you don’t have to be a resident of the Flathead Valley to sign the online petition.
Please take a minute to add your name to this online petition and support this courageous truth-telling doctor.

By all accounts and from the very beginning it was clear that Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) was at the very most a bad cold – little more dangerous than the annual flu – but being deliberately hyped to stampede the public into a tangled web of bad policies.
As early as last month cooler-headed experts warned that hyped death rates spread by politicians, the Western corporate media, other various panic-mongers, and even World Health Organization (WHO) officials would give way to much, much lower death rates as more people were tested, found to have had the virus, and showed little to no symptoms.
The numbers of infections versus deaths in Iceland where testing has been the most widespread shows a death rate of about 0.5%, though only 5% of the population has been tested. 50% of those tested showed no symptoms at all meaning that many, many more Icelanders likely had the virus, overcame it with ease, and never visited a doctor or hospital to avail themselves for testing or to make into national Covid-19 statistics.
Another study conducted in the United States by Stanford University found the infection rate was likely 50-85 times higher than reported – meaning the death rate was astronomically lower than reported at around 0.2% to as low as 0.12% – not the 3-4% claimed by the World Health Organization.
In other words – Covid-19 is no more dangerous or deadly than the annual flu. But it has been hyped as such by Western politicians, the Western corporate media, and even international institutions like WHO – a deliberate deception accompanied by coordinated theater including government briefings with reporters comically spaced out in “fear” of contracting Covid-19.
Other props used to panic the public into imprisoning themselves at home and accepting the immense socioeconomic damage “lockdowns” are causing included showing the expotential graphs of infections seemingly rising straight up with no end in sight.
If responsible journalists put these graphs in context – say, perhaps next to annual flu infection curves – the public would notice they are identical and simply represent the way the flu, colds, and Covid-19 which is related to both – work their way through populations.
The same goes for total deaths. Should the media present Covid-19 deaths in the context of and in comparison to annual deaths from the flu, Americans – for example – would see that versus the 2019 flu season, Covid-19 is actually 30,000-40,000 deaths short of just matching the common flu – saying nothing of living up to the hype and hysteria the government and media have deliberately created around Covid-19 to justify lockdowns.
So why have governments around the globe crippled their economies, put millions out of work, and placed draconian measures in place to, in essence, imprison their populations at home?
Those with power and money seek to keep what they have and to take what little is left in the hands of others. During the manufactured “War on Terror,” similar hysteria was deliberately spread across society to justify draconian police powers at home and endless wars abroad – pouring ultimately trillions into the accounts of defense contractors and the financial institutions invested in them.
During a manufactured health crisis like the 2009 H1N1 “Swine Flu” outbreak, the unfounded fear of an uncontrollable pathogen ravaging the population helped justify the centralizing of control over people’s health and lifestyle while pumping billions in pubic funding into the coffers of big-pharma.
And here we are again with the very same interests who lied to us about all of the above, doing it again and on a much larger and more destructive scale – creating socioeconomic havoc virtually no one will escape completely.
If the Covid-19 hoax doesn’t convince you to divest from the politicians and the corporations they serve – including divesting from big-business’ goods and services – nothing will. Special interests just beta-tested turning entire nations into virtual prisons. If people allow it this time, their ability to do it again and to an even greater and more disruptive degree is all but guaranteed.

Donald Trump’s so-called Deal of the Century unveiled this past Tuesday is actually a deal with the devil. This so-called Middle East Peace Plan would more accurately be called the “Permanent Palestinian Enslavement Act”—otherwise known as the “Save Benjamin Netanyahu’s Derriere Act.”
On the very day that Netanyahu was formally indicted on corruption charges by the Israeli Knesset, Donald Trump rolls out his “Deal of the Century” Middle East peace plan. As with Trump’s assassination of General Soleimani, this is nothing but a ploy to try and save Trump’s partner in crime and fellow Zionist, Benjamin Netanyahu—and to further endear himself to the much beguiled Christian Zionists within America’s evangelical voting bloc.
The people who live under the yoke of Israeli oppression in Palestine, however, know exactly what this is all about. And they rightly reject it.
Trump revealed his plan on Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu standing by his side at the White House. [The Palestinians were conveniently left out of the negotiations.]
Trump led his statement by introducing the Israeli side of the plan, announcing that Jerusalem will remain the “undivided capital” of Israel, adding that this has “already been done”.
He also said he hoped to implement the plan “immediately”.
Netanyahu, speaking after Trump, thanked the US president for a “historic day” and said the plan would see Israeli law implemented in the occupied West Bank’s Jordan Valley as a means to ensuring the security of Israel.
Fakhry Abu Diab, a Palestinian activist in Silwan neighbourhood in East Jerusalem, told Al Jazeera: “It is obvious that Trump is repeating history by establishing new Balfour Declaration.
“He [Trump] is giving away what he does not own, to people who have no right to it,” said Abu Diab.
Following Britain’s pledge to establish “a national home for the Jewish people,” the Balfour Declaration was issued on November 2, 1917. It turned the Zionist aim of establishing a Jewish state in Palestine into a reality.
“This deal only secures Israeli interests while violating international law and some of the main pillars of a Palestinian state – Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley.
“After decades of sacrificing our lives for this cause, we want our freedom and a Palestinian state along the 1967 border, not some economic gains.
“We completely reject this plan and will continue to fight it,” he added. (Source)
The Palestinians are absolutely right: This is merely another Balfour Declaration—which was nothing more than a conspiracy orchestrated by 19th and 20th century Zionists to steal land belonging to the indigenous Arab people in a demonic attempt to overturn God’s divine judgment on the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish temple in 70 AD—a judgment that had been prophesied by Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist, the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles. In actuality, Zionism is nothing more than a 2,000-year blood feud with God for destroying their holy city and their holy temple.
Trump’s “two-state solution” for the Palestinians is analogous to the way Nazi Germany forced Jews into the Warsaw ghettos. “Be good little slaves and accept our total domination over you, eat your bread and water and live in squalid conditions, and maybe we won’t kill you.” THAT is Trump’s “two-state solution,” his “Deal of the Century.”
Without a doubt, Gaza is the Auschwitz of our time.
Palestinians shouted back, “Jerusalem is not for sale!”
Trump released a “conceptual map” of his two-state solution on Twitter after his speech, showing a much-reduced West Bank honeycombed with Israeli settlements. While these ethnically-segregated outposts are illegal under international law, the peace plan recognizes them as permanent – though imposes a four-year freeze on construction of further settlements. A tunnel connects the West Bank and Gaza, and two chunks of desert land in Israel’s southwest are added to Palestine, connected by a tiny strip of land to Gaza.
The deal situates the proposed capital of the Palestinian state in East Jerusalem outside an existing security barrier that divides Arab neighborhoods from the rest of Jerusalem – but does not include the Old City, currently home to many of the city’s Palestinian residents.
While Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was standing beside Trump as he detailed the proposed plan, no Palestinian representative was present at the speech. Abbas’ Palestinian Authority preemptively scorned the deal, having cut off communications with Washington since the US moved its embassy to Jerusalem – an outcome Trump appears to have expected, telling reporters the day before unveiling the deal that the Palestinians “probably won’t want it initially.” However, he hinted, economic pressure would eventually bring them round.

Like most unprincipled money-hungry Americans—including “Prosperity Gospel” fakers like Paula White and Kenneth Copeland—Donald Trump suffers from the delusion (moral sickness) that everyone is like him and will sell their soul for a dollar. Trump and his ilk have absolutely no idea how to relate to people who possess real convictions and principles and cannot be bought or bullied. You know, people like our Early Church fathers and America’s Founding Fathers.
Tragically, evangelical Christians are following the Pied Pipers of Zionism into the abyss.
I’ll say it straight out: Anyone who believes that the modern State of Israel fulfills Bible prophecy or that the Zionists in Israel are “God’s Chosen People” or that God’s promise in Genesis 12:3 to bless those who bless Abram applies to modern Israel is following Satan’s lie.
The modern State of Israel is a complete counterfeit; the Ashkenazi Jews inhabiting Palestine are only “chosen” if they—like every other person on the planet, Jew or Gentile—have been “chosen in Christ” (Ephesians 1:4). And the Rothschild Zionists (who are the planners, promoters and financial pockets of a globalist New World Order, complete with its efforts to strip free men of their right to keep and bear arms, implement universal abortion-on-demand, fill our culture with pornography and sexual deviancy and destroy America’s Christian heritage) are nothing more than the spiritual descendants of the Pharisees, chief priests and scribes who hated and crucified the Son of God for their own personal pleasure and profit. (Matthew 27:18, 20; Mark 11:17, 18; 15:11; Luke 16:14; 23:21; John 11:48; 19:6, 15; Acts 2:22, 23)
Any Christian or “patriot” who does not understand that the epicenter of the New World Order has coalesced in Tel Aviv (and in London and Washington, D.C., of course) doesn’t have a clue about the New World Order or the “Deep State.”
The worst tyrants and oppressors in the Middle East are in Tel Aviv and Beersheba. The criminality, killings, torture, pillage and plunder committed by the Israelis dwarfs the violence and bloodshed committed by Muslim peoples—Shiites or Sunnis. Even the murderous Wahhabi sect of Muslims can’t compare to the volume of Israeli atrocities.
Since becoming a state in 1948, the Israeli military has killed over 5 million Palestinians. Why is that not labeled a holocaust? And since Israel became a state, over 20 million people have been killed from U.S. led wars, military coups and intelligence ops, mostly on behalf of Israel. Why is that not labeled a holocaust?
If America’s evangelicals want to support “God’s people” in Palestine, they will support the Palestinian Christians—along with Arab Christians throughout the region. Yes, many of the Palestinians being victimized by Israel’s apartheid state are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Yet America’s evangelical Christians are cheering Trump’s deal with the devil of enabling Netanyahu and his brood of bloodthirsty butchers to expand Israel’s continuing criminal conduct of stealing people’s land, bulldozing people’s homes, imprisoning people’s families, shooting children in the head for sport, walling in, starving and denying water and electricity to entire communities and wreaking havoc and violence upon the entire Middle East. Why? Because evangelicals have fallen victim to the damnable notes promoting Israel-based prophetic futurism in the Zionist-created Scofield Reference Bible.
After the State of Israel was created in 1948, Scofield’s notes were seen as divinely inspired. And Israel’s land grab of the Jordanian West Bank, the Syrian Golan Heights and the Egyptian Sinai in 1967 sealed the deal for evangelicals.
Christians didn’t even notice that Israel tried to sink the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967, with unmarked French Mirage jets to make it appear the ship was attacked by Egypt in an attempt to bring the United States into the war. Christians didn’t even notice that 34 American sailors and Marines were killed in that attack and 174 were wounded. And to this day, they totally ignore the brave survivors of that attack who risk everything to try and tell the American people what really happened on that terrible day.
Combined with the creation of the Israeli state in 1948, the Six Day War in 1967 was interpreted by prophecy preachers nationwide as a sign from Heaven. Israel’s victory was called a “miracle.” Of course, the REAL miracle during the Israeli act of aggression and land confiscation of 1967 was the divine intervention that kept the USS Liberty afloat on June 8. But that didn’t fit in with the Scofield prophecy preachers’ theology, so that miracle was never mentioned.
Soon “Prophetic Dispensationalism,” as it came to be called, saturated America’s Christian colleges, seminaries and Christian book stores. The “Church Growth” movement of the 1970s, 80s and 90s quickly enveloped America’s evangelicals. Of course, most of the “Church Growth” movement had a heavy emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the “imminent” return of Christ.
In the minds of evangelical futurists today, Donald Trump is a new King Cyrus for a Greater Israel.
There is no reasoning with these prophecy zealots. There is no use quoting the Declaration of Independence, Constitution or Bill of Rights. There is no such thing as Natural Law, International Law or the Law of Nations with them. America’s Founding Fathers and founding documents are completely irrelevant, as are honesty, integrity, morality and humility. None of it matters. Scofield’s prophecies have been fulfilled in Donald Trump.
Old Testament Israel has been reborn; a third Jewish temple MUST be rebuilt; the Mosaic feasts, festivals, new moons, rites, ordinances, commandments, sacrifices and sabbaths MUST be reinstituted. Donald Trump is “The Chosen One.” He is “God’s Anointed.” Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu and Nikki Haley are the new Holy Trinity. And Robert Jeffress, Jerry Falwell Jr., John Hagee, Kenneth Copeland, Paula White and Franklin Graham—along with Trump’s myriad “spiritual advisors”—are the new Kingdom Prophets who sit at the King’s table.
Assassinating foreign heads of state, enabling Federal Reserve bankers to crush foreign currencies and economies that reject their financial monopoly, stealing oil fields from recalcitrant but powerless countries, pillaging and plundering America’s economic future in order to finance the never-ending Zionist “war on terror,” bullying every nation on earth that hesitates to accept the American/Israeli global hegemony, risking global nuclear war: In the minds of evangelical rapturists, it’s all necessary to fulfill Scofield’s prophecies.
Yep! Donald Trump’s “Deal of the Century” is nothing more than an old-fashioned deal with the devil. Then again, many evangelical Christians and former presidents have made that same deal over the past 70+ years.
P.S. This is the message you won’t hear in the vast majority of America’s evangelical churches. This message will explain the Zionist blood feud against God and why most Christians have completely misinterpreted the truth of God’s Word by embracing Israel-based prophetic futurism. You will probably never hear another message like it. Find it here.

Tragically, most Americans do not have any idea what it was that actually triggered America’s War for Independence. The primary reason was not “taxation without representation,” or taxes of any kind, for that matter. And it was certainly not because our Founding Fathers were a bunch of anti-government extremists or demon-possessed puppets of the Illuminati.
For the most part, our Founding Fathers were good and honorable men of devout Christian faith. They were mostly educated men of means who had much to lose by supporting America’s War for Independence. They were schooled in both the Holy Scriptures and the principles of Natural Law. They were men who valued liberty above safety and wealth and were willing to sacrifice their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” to be able to bequeath the principles of liberty to their posterity.
“The shot heard ’round the world” in the pre-dawn hours of April 19, 1775, on Lexington Green, Massachusetts, was probably inevitable, but the causes of its occurrence cannot be denied. The primary mission of the British Crown that morning was to confiscate the firearms of the colonists in Lexington and Concord. It sent 800 military troops to fulfill that mission.
Warned of the approaching British troops by Paul Revere and William Dawes, a little over 70 men (mostly from the congregation of the Church at Lexington, pastored by Jonas Clark) stood on Lexington Green, muskets in arm, to face the troops. The rest, as they say, is history.
What is undeniable is that decades of grievances of the colonies against British injustice and oppression did NOT bring the colonies to open rebellion against the Crown. For decades, the colonies peacefully petitioned, redressed, reasoned, appealed, pleaded and remonstrated with the British Crown without bloodshed. Even the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770, did not bring the colonies to arms against their government. But when British troops marched on Lexington and Concord to confiscate the firearms of the colonists, the line between peaceful protest and armed revolution was crossed.
Now, almost 245 years later, the government of the Commonwealth of Virginia is threatening to cross that line again. As we speak, the State of Virginia is attempting to pass laws that would forcefully confiscate the arms of the people of that sovereign State: specifically, semi-automatic rifles AND pistols.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is backing a proposed ban on “assault weapons” that would prohibit the sale of many semi-automatic firearm designs like the AR-15, but would grandfather existing owners of the weapons so long as they are registered — or else face surrender.
His proposed bill did note, “The provisions of this act may result in a net increase in periods of imprisonment or commitment.” (Source)
In fact, Governor Northam has asked the Virginia legislature for an additional $250,000 to fund the anticipated incarceration of Virginians who refuse to comply with the State’s gun confiscation ban and an additional $4.8 million budget to fund a special 18-member SWAT team dedicated to confiscating the arms of the people of Virginia. A U.S. Congressman from Virginia, Donald McEachin, is urging Governor Northam to call out the Virginia National Guard to confiscate the arms of the Virginians.
Predictably, hyper gun-grabber and billionaire Jewish Zionist Michael Bloomberg is throwing his money and support behind the Virginia governor’s efforts.
Make no mistake about it: This has the potential to be a Lexington and Concord redux.
Get a grip on this folks! This is happening in the land of Washington and Jefferson—the land of Lee and Jackson. This is happening in Virginia. I lived in Virginia for over two years; our oldest child—our only daughter—was born in Virginia.
As one can imagine, the freedom-loving people of Virginia are NOT taking this lying down. Ninety-one counties and eleven cities in the State have declared themselves to be in open rebellion against these tyrannical proposals from Richmond. The vast majority of sheriffs around the State have said they will NOT enforce these gun confiscation laws, if they are passed. And the sales of firearms in Virginia have exploded.
I encourage readers to watch this testimony from a Virginian who was a former active duty soldier and Marine and is currently a Major in the Marine Corps Reserve and a federal police officer, regarding the resolve of Virginians to maintain their right to keep and bear arms.
This coming Monday, January 20 (the day in between the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, by the way), 100,000 Virginians are expected to descend on the Virginia legislature in Richmond to protest the proposed gun confiscation acts—acts that can only be described as acts of war against the people of that State.
A sizeable number of states with tyrannical gun-grabbing governors and State legislatures are watching the events in Virginia with heightened interest, as they intend to enact the same kind of gun confiscation laws in their states. The governor of Washington State is already seeking gun confiscation laws in that State predicated on the proposals of the Virginia State government.
And as one can imagine, other draconian gun control measures, such as universal background checks (meaning there would be no such thing as private gun sales), a high-capacity magazine ban (magazines holding more than ten rounds), gun registration—and Donald Trump’s favorite: “red flag” gun confiscation laws—are also being proposed.
Speaking of Donald Trump, has anyone noticed that this president who keeps telling us how much he supports the Second Amendment has thus far said absolutely NOTHING in defense of the brave men and women of Virginia who are RIGHT NOW fighting for the right of every American to keep and bear arms? Not a peep! Not a tweet!
This braggadocious, pompous, loquacious loudmouth, who is quick to condemn almost anyone and everyone to eternal hell if he doesn’t agree with them, is totally mute about the Lexington and Concord redux that is taking place right now in Virginia. He conducts rallies all over America, so why won’t he go to Virginia and help rally the people in support of their God-given right to keep and bear arms?
From a strictly political perspective, Trump should be jumping all over this situation in Virginia. After all, he LOST that State in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And since Trump became president—and for the first time in 26 years—Democrats control the governor’s mansion and both State houses. And what is the first thing they try to do? Propose laws to confiscate the people’s firearms.
Trump has campaigned all over America in support of the Second Amendment. He has repeatedly told us that he is a “true friend and champion” for the Second Amendment (of course, he told us the same thing about the pro-life cause, and he’s done absolutely NOTHING to overturn Roe—and continues to fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of over a half billion dollars annually).
One would think that Donald Trump would be seizing the opportunity that this Democrat gun grab in Virginia affords him to rally the people of that State to his 2020 candidacy by screaming to the heavens about how Democrats are going to take their guns and how he will protect those liberties.
Instead, he’s said NOTHING.
Remember, however, this same Donald Trump is the loudest voice in the country in support of “red flag” gun confiscation laws. In his heart and soul, Trump has always been a New York pro-gun control, pro-abortion liberal. He only became “pro-life” and “pro-gun” when he decided to run for president as a Republican in 2016.
There is absolutely no doubt that the rush to enact gun confiscation laws by states around the country—including Florida and Virginia—is largely due to the encouragement they received from President Trump’s boisterous call for gun confiscation in 2018.
Plus, I hope you realize that Donald Trump is also the loudest voice in America in support of the militarization of our police.
For decades, I have tried to awaken the people of America—especially the Christian people of America—to the existential threat against our right to keep and bear arms. I have urged Christians to vote with their feet and get out of these statist churches who teach that we are Biblically bound to submit to governments that would demand the surrender of our firearms. Any pastor or Bible teacher who takes that position is not only anti-freedom, anti-Constitution, anti-Bill of Rights and anti-Natural Law; he is also anti-Christ and anti-God.
My constitutional attorney son and I co-authored a book entitled To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns. Every Christian in America—especially in Virginia right now—needs to read this book.
I delivered two messages dedicated specifically to the scriptural duty of Christians to never surrender their arms—and I’m talking about our AR-15 rifles. The first message is entitled A Biblical Portrait Of The Righteousness And Requirement Of Bearing Arms. And the second message is entitled The Attack Against Our Guns And The Christian Duty To Repel The Attack.
I’ve said it from the pulpit, and I’ll say it here: The day that my AR-15 rifle is outlawed, I will be an outlaw! And I would make that decision with the perfect confidence that doing so is in total conformity with the scriptural and Natural laws of my Creator and Redeemer—the same confidence as had Jonas Clark and those brave men on Lexington Green.
The truth is, the attempted tyrannical behavior of the State of Virginia—and many other government entities across the country—are exactly why America’s founders put the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The right to keep and bear arms has nothing to do with hunting or target shooting and everything to do with protecting oneself and others from common criminals and with protecting freedom from the criminals in government—ANY government.
To the valiant, liberty-loving people of Virginia, I say: HOLD THE LINE! Fate has chosen you to once again be the vanguard of liberty for our nation. Never surrender your arms! Never surrender your semi-automatic rifles or your semi-automatic pistols. Never surrender your high-capacity magazines. And never surrender your right to freely sell, purchase or possess a firearm without government registration.
AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT SURRENDER!
If the tyrannical gun grabbers of this country can succeed in bringing the People of Virginia to their knees, it will start a whirlwind of gun confiscation that will sweep across this entire nation.
I’m here to tell you that the vast majority of the People of Montana are with you. And if and when it comes our turn to stand and fight this tyranny, that is exactly what we will do. And I’m sure I am speaking for the People of Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Alabama, Kentucky, West Virginia and many, many others.
Christian pastors in Virginia: Rally the people to liberty!
Sheriffs, police chiefs, deputy sheriffs, policemen and State patrolmen: Resist this tyranny!
It is no hyperbole to say that the future of America as a free and independent country rests upon the shoulders of the People of Virginia RIGHT NOW, as well as with the liberty-loving people in all of our 50 sovereign states.
Donald Trump or no Donald Trump. Republican Party or no Republican Party. Pastor or no pastor. Governor or no governor. Lawman or no lawman. WE THE PEOPLE fought to make this country free; and WE THE PEOPLE must fight to keep this country free.
P.S. Here, again, is our book To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns.
And here is my message DVD A Biblical Portrait Of The Righteousness And Requirement Of Bearing Arms.
And here is my message DVD The Attack Against Our Guns And The Christian Duty To Repel The Attack.

I’ll make this column short and to the point.
Trump’s executive order—deceptively called “An Executive Order on Combating Anti-Semitism”—issued this past week, will empower the federal Department of Education to withhold funding to college campuses that do not squash anti-Israel rhetoric. In other words, it is now official government policy to deny college students and faculty members their Natural and constitutional right to criticize—especially and primarily if they criticize any and all things Israel. This will also doubtless include speech that supports Palestinian rights.
Trump also declared that the religion of Judaism is a nationality or ethnicity and is beyond criticism. Can you imagine the outcry if he had declared Christianity to be a nationality?
Plus, by issuing this Executive Order, Donald Trump has made every Christian and non-Jew in the United States a second-class citizen. But don’t expect Robert Jeffress and his gaggle of Christian Zionists to figure that out.
I have said repeatedly that Donald Trump is America’s first Zionist president. And Trump’s actions continue to prove that statement true.
Trump’s latest attack against the Constitution—specifically the First Amendment—is just his latest sellout to Israel. I’ll say it straight out: Donald Trump is not trying to make America great; he is trying to make Israel great.
By the way, I’m glad to see that rabid Jewish Zionist, Mark Levin, agrees with me. At the signing ceremony of this draconian executive order, Levin called Trump “the first Jewish President of the United States.”
Even casual research will easily discover that Trump’s family is dominated by Jewish Zionists, as is his circle of friends and business associates. What a coincidence.
Trump says his executive order (EO) is protecting free speech on college campuses. That’s a lie. His EO is squashing free speech—specifically speech that criticizes Israel or Zionism.
Think about this: Under Trump’s EO, colleges will be punished if they allow the reading of the New Testament on campus, as the New Testament is replete with criticisms of Israel and the Jews.
Donald Trump is a pathetic puppet of the likes of ultra-Zionist billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Even worse is the fact that the Christian Zionist preachers and churches in this country are as much Adelson’s puppets as is Trump, which is why they love Trump so much.
And all of this hypnotic support for faux Israel can be traced directly to the false teachings of John Darby and C. I. Scofield and the thousands of Christian Zionist churches and scores of Christian Zionist colleges that those two men created.
It would not be hyperbolic to say that Donald Trump is the quintessential creation of Darby and Scofield. And it is no coincidence that Trump is also the Blasphemer-in-Chief, because everything associated with Zionism is blasphemy.
Now the Zionist Donald Trump is trying to prohibit colleges from criticizing Zionism. If you are looking for an impeachable offense, this blatant abridgment of the First Amendment by the President of the United States is it.
But don’t expect Democrats in Congress to challenge Trump’s unconscionable EO that officially elevates Jewishness to royalty status, because the same Israeli lobby that controls the Republicans in Washington, D.C., also controls the Democrats.
Trump’s EO will deny funding for colleges and universities unless they prohibit the right of faculty and students to exercise their First Amendment freedom of speech to criticize Israel.
How long will it be before Trump decides to criminalize anyone who criticizes Israel?
Donald Trump and America’s Christian Zionist preachers are foolishly trying to undo what God did when He prophesied through His prophets—including John the Baptist at the birth of Christ and later Jesus Himself—the destruction of Jerusalem, along with the Jewish temple and the devilish Pharisee cult (of which the modern Zionist cult is a direct spiritual descendent) and when He then fulfilled those prophecies in 70 AD.
I urge readers to watch the very powerful message DVD entitled The Destruction Of Jerusalem.
Donald Trump is not only a Zionist hack; he is a wanna-be tyrant. And this executive order proves it. This executive order is abominable, reprehensible and downright tyrannical.
The false doctrines of Christian Zionism have all but destroyed the Church in America and are in the process of bringing America itself to the precipice of destruction. If real Christians do not have a spiritual awakening to and an honest repentance of the wicked designs and doctrines of Zionism (both Christian and Jewish)—and I mean SOON—this great nation that was built on the eternal principles of Christ’s New Covenant and God’s Natural Law will cease to exist as a free republic.
Thankfully, we are beginning to see a spiritual enlightenment take place across the country in which people are coming to recognize the wickedness of Zionism (both Christian and Jewish) and are repudiating those vile doctrines—which is doubtless one reason why Trump felt constrained to issue his blatantly unconstitutional executive order. That’s what tyrants and despots do. When they begin losing the battle of intellectual debate and public opinion, they start using brute force.
And I am further pleased (and humbled) to see that my message DVD The Destruction Of Jerusalem is being used of God to help awaken hundreds—if not thousands—of people to the Biblical truth of Israel.
In is no hyperbole to say that without an understanding of the component of Jerusalem’s foretold—and ultimate—destruction, one cannot fully understand the complete fulfillment of the birth of Jesus Christ—something God intended to be apodictic.
Yes, millions of Christians in America are celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ with no real understanding of the true significance of Christ’s birth. Zionism has blinded them even to the point that they are unable to see Christ’s birth clearly.
As you celebrate the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ this season, please understand that one of the major components of Christ’s birth was the destruction of the tyranny of Pharisaical Judaism—known today as Talmudic Zionism—which was accomplished when the Roman army destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.
Paradoxically, the only impetus for the 20th and now 21st century resurgence of Talmudic Zionism is from the monstrous misinterpretation and misapplication of Scripture by professed believers in Christ who swallowed and followed the deceptive doctrines of Darby and Scofield.
To help your friends and loved ones understand the true Biblical teaching on Israel, I urge you to take advantage of this half-price special on this one-of-a-kind message, The Destruction Of Jerusalem. You’ve probably never heard and never will hear another message like it.
And, once again, here is my 5-minute video rebuttal of Trump’s tyrannical executive order. Please feel free to share it.

Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem recently described the US as using the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) as “a scarecrow” the US uses to menace targeted nations all while secretly encouraging, protecting, and helping them “move from one area to another.”
Maullum’s comments perfectly encapsulate the twenty-plus year so-called “War on Terror” the US has used to expand itself across the globe militarily and to serve as a stand-in for legitimate economic and political development both within the United States and between the United States and the international community.
Maullum’s comments come at a time when – despite Washington’s collapsing machinations in Syria – the US is still working to undermine, divide, and destroy the Syrian nation by aiding its enemies while using all political, economic, and military options available to pressure Syria itself.
Muallem was also quoted as saying:
All nations that were victimized by this system need to join forces and resist those sanctions.
In many ways, this is already happening. Russia’s intervention in Syria from 2015 onward is part of growing international momentum working against US special interests, their collective hegemony, and the toxic impact it has had not only on international relations and development, but also on the US itself.
From Convincing Pretext to Obvious State-Sponsored Terrorism
Following the events of September 11, 2001 the United States embarked on a multi-decade “War on Terror.” Its invasion of Afghanistan was seen and supported by many nations and their respective populations as a necessary and justified means of combating the scourge that allegedly carried out the deadly attacks on 9/11.
By 2003 – after a time of reflection and in the face of an America eager to spread its “War on Terror” across the globe – it became clear that this “War on Terror” was merely a stand-in to continue America’s hegemonic designs pursued during the now concluded Cold War. This included a pretext for NATO’s continued existence and the alliance’s use by Washington as a means of exerting control over Europe as well as using Europe, its people, and resources to exert influence and control across Africa and Eurasia.
By 2011 and the US interventions in Libya and Syria – it was abundantly clear that not only was the “War on Terror” a false pretext, but it was one artificially created and deliberately perpetuated by Washington itself.
This included revelations that the US had been arming and directing the very Al Qaeda terror network and its affiliates allegedly responsible for the 9/11 attacks – using them as a virtual mercenary force to target nations the US sought regime change within.
The so-called “rebels” in Libya were little more than Al Qaeda affiliates – poorly dressed as freedom fighters seeking “democracy.” These same literal terrorists the US armed and aided in overthrowing the Libyan government in 2011 would be shipped to Syria where the US sought to replicate its “success” in Libya against Damascus.
The war in Syria however failed to produce Washington’s desired results – and as the conflict dragged on – through the growth and influence of alternative media – the true nature of America’s “War on Terror” emerged.
It is now common knowledge that the United States and its Saudi, Turkish, and Qatari allies deliberately armed Al Qaeda militants and their affiliates in a bid to destabilize and overthrow the Syrian government. It is now also common knowledge that when this bid failed – the US and its allies created ISIS to serve as both an additional pressure point against Damascus as well as a pretext for direct US military intervention.
Today, the US “War on Terror” exists as a mostly empty narrative long-since exposed. Washington’s continued efforts against Syria have resulted in even its own allies during the early stages of the war abandoning them – including Turkey – a key NATO member – which now is working closer with Russia and increasingly pursuing a foreign policy independently of Washington.
What Lies in the Future
For Washington – a lack of of a better alternative and its insistence on doubling down on a now exposed and impotent narrative reveals to the world a circle of special interests that are desperately and dangerously spiraling out of control.
Nations eager to do business with the United States as a nation are increasingly frustrated by the handful of special interests occupying Wall Street and Washington – preferring to create an alternative global order that either excludes the US or at the very least – leaves it behind as the rest of the world moves on without it.
For nations like Syria – their decision to stand by their allies – including Russia and Iran – has paid off. And because it has – other nations facing similar threats from Washington’s belligerent foreign policy are faced with the easy choice of likewise building ties with reemerging powers like Russia or rising powers like China rather than continuing to capitulate to US pressure.
Growing global momentum means that not only will current US foreign policy continue to fail to produce positive results for the interests directing it – it will fail at an increasingly expotential rate.
For nations like Russia and China who serve as alternative focal points of global power – their success owed to a different forumla of creating and brokering a global balance of power should serve as encouragement to continue in a multipolar direction rather than cave in to the temptation of seizing a hegemonic position as the US did both after the conclusion of World War 2 and again at the end of the Cold War.
The world finds itself at yet another critical juncture where the very face of global relations and international order stand to be redefined. This time it is not Washington who gets to decide – but rather those who have long suffered under US hegemony.
Only time will tell if this alternative global order will learn from America’s mistakes – or merely repeat them.
The collapse of America’s “War on Terror” is a microcosm within the greater collapse of American global hegemony in general. It is a collapse that will cost the US as a nation dearly. It should serve as a stark warning and example driving emerging global powers to learn from America’s mistakes rather than repeat them.

As this is the day in which we commemorate the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am reminded of a quote by John Quincy Adams. On July 4, 1837, he spoke these words:
Why is it that, next to the birth day of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before?
Adams was exactly right. The United States of America is the only nation in human history established by mostly Christian people, founded upon 2,000 years of Christian thought, Reformation preaching and Biblical Natural Law principles—and dedicated to the purpose of religious and personal liberty and equal justice under the law. This truth is easily observed within America’s earliest history.
America’s forebears first established a written covenant with God as early as November 11, 1620, when they penned The Mayflower Compact. It states in part:
In the name of God, Amen. . . . Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith and honour of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colonie in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant, and combine our selves together into a civil body politick; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, Acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colonie: unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.
From the beginning, the sentiments and statements of America’s founders make it clear that this country has enjoyed a love and appreciation for the rights and freedoms recognized in Natural Law that is unique in the annals of human history. No other nation has such a heritage.
The Declaration of Independence states, “[Men] are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It also states that these rights are “self-evident” and that they were formed by the “Laws of Nature.” These principles are also taken directly from the Scriptures—and from Enlightenment fathers such as Hugo Grotius, John Locke, Samuel Von Pufendorf, Emer de Vattel and Charles Montesquieu. Furthermore, one cannot read what these men wrote without quickly observing that they formed their writings largely on the Scriptures.
The signers of our Declaration of Independence could have never imagined that individual states would deny their citizens the right to bear arms. They could have never dreamed that the American people would be denied the right to be free from warrantless searches—which takes place every day throughout this country.
They could never have imagined that a U.S. president (Donald Trump) would attempt to deny people the freedom of speech and religion or call for people to be stripped of their right of self-defense without commiting a crime and without the due process of law.
I am also confident that America’s founders would be completely repulsed by the way the United States has jumped headlong into welfarism, corporatism and Zionism. At the national level, Democrats and Republicans alike have created a central government so large that it would be unrecognizable to any founding father—even Alexander Hamilton.
Big Business sucks feverishly at the teat of Big Government; the major media has become little more than a propaganda ministry of Big Government; corporate 501c3 churches view Big Government as a god to be worshipped; and America (including and especially its Christians and churches) seems to be drunk on the perpetual wars and entangling alliances of the neocon Warfare State.
Surely, our Founding Fathers must be turning over in their graves.
Therefore, it behooves us to recommit ourselves to our nation’s founding principles.
Furthermore, let us renew with vigor the fight for freedom before our liberties and heritage disappear altogether.
John Quincy Adams was right. The birth of Christ and the birth of America are indissolubly linked.
Merry Christmas, America.

DOJ’s High Crimes and Misdemeanors
Conservative talk show hosts frequently say corruption in federal law enforcement is “just at the top; we’re not talking about the rank and file of these agencies.”
But Representative Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was a low level a federal prosecutor in the late 80s and early 90s. Robert Mueller was with DOJ during the same period. Peter Strozk joined the FBI in the 90s. Do we really believe members of the law enforcement community arrive at the top and then become corrupt?
No. Skills of tampering with evidence to hide or alter it, fabricating false narratives, and controlling what information comes out in trials – or House hearings – are well-honed at lower levels of these agencies. They’re rewarded with promotions, as former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell documented in her book Licensed to Lie.
Indeed, abuses proliferated in House impeachment hearings and documented by the Office of Inspector General report demonstrate a crooked pursuit of a fabricated case against President Donald Trump. The House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment report charges the president with, among other things, wire fraud – one of DOJ’s favorite “go to” charges, along with other types of fraud.
Similar corrupt tactics have been quietly executed for years against untold numbers of “enemies” of the establishment.
Few prominent Democrats have been pursued by DOJ, but they’ve locked up numerous Republican office holders or their supporters.
The miscarriage of justice in the case of my husband, former Rep. Steve Stockman, is one prime example. Before looking at prosecutors’ tactics, it should be noted that Stockman aggressively blocked the Obama agenda, and publicly exposed Administration corruptions.
For example, Stockman was first to reveal President Obama’s paying millions in ransom to Haqqani terrorists, the most radical wing of the Taliban, for the release of Bowe Bergdahl. He was the U. S. soldier taken captive when he deserted his Army post in Afghanistan.
Stockman blew the whistle on Clinton’s State Department allowing the sale of dual-use steel to Iran by a Ukrainian oligarch-owned company, in violation of U.S. Iran sanctions. The oligarch was coincidently the largest 2013 Clinton Foundation donor.
Shaking the Obama administration again, Stockman filed a resolution requesting the arrest of Lois Lerner for her contempt of Congress when she destroyed subpoenaed evidence and refused to appear before a House Committee investigating IRS persecution of conservative non-profit organizations.
Stockman’s persistent voice of opposition and exposure of corruptions had to be silenced. His service on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, broad travels and international relationships, further required muzzling his whistleblowing.
Two weeks after my husband appeared on Fox News and Fox Business channels to discuss his proposed arrest of Lerner, the FBI was at our apartment door.
Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the IRS non-profit division formerly led by Lerner played an integral role in Stockman’s prosecution. So flimsy was the government’s case that the DOJ spent millions of dollars, four years (nearly twice as long spent investigating President Trump), and four grand juries to indict Stockman.
His case included money laundering for such things as a move of funds from a checking to a savings account – something most Americans do in their own bank accounts.
Attorney Sidney Powell described Stockman’s case as the prosecutors’ effort to create precedent that they could follow to go after the Trump Foundation.
Indeed, the prosecutor even acknowledged to the Court of Appeals that there is not one criminal precedent for one of the campaign finance related charges of which Stockman was convicted.
The practices employed by DOJ included pursuit and possibly wrongful surveillance of Stockman even as he was a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee. The government controlled what could even be mentioned in trial. The federal court denied all but two of Stockman’s witnesses, saying others’ testimony would be irrelevant, though they would have directly refuted a lot of prosecutor-led testimony that, as couched, demeaned Stockman’s character.
Prosecutors asked a non-profit donor supposedly defrauded by Stockman the hypothetical question of whether he would have given, if he “had known that Mr. Stockman was going to spend his donations” for “personal gain,” a strictly government-fabricated narrative. The donor’s obvious “no” to this twisted leading question was cited by the prosecutor to the Appeals Court as evidence of Stockman’s fraud.
We have learned that witnesses in my husband’s case were pressured into misleading testimonies with partial truths presented to create wrongful impressions in the jury. The court strictly instructed one of the government’s own key witnesses not to give any context for, or elaboration of, his answers before the jury. This same government witness later said Stockman’s was a Soviet-style “show trial.”
Stockman’s lack of funds for an aggressive defense, combined with the sort of corrupt government tactics on display by Adam Schiff in the House of Representatives, resulted in guilty verdicts by Stockman’s jury. Most assuredly to quiet his voice, prosecutors asked the court to immediately imprison Stockman – a full seven months before he was even sentenced.
Even Bill Cosby who was convicted of physically and sexually assaulting young women was allowed to remain free pending sentencing. Not so for non-violent Stockman; his outspokenness was more of a threat to the establishment. He was sentenced to an egregious 10 years in prison, with a $1.25 million restitution, even though a 2016 study reported the average sentence for federal public corruption was just 13 months.
Appearing on “Bill Martinez Live” November 22, 2018, Powell told the listening audience,
“if the government wants to put you in prison, you will go to prison. It doesn’t matter whether you are innocent or not. They will make up crimes against you; they will indict you; they will search your house; they are willing to make up evidence; they’re willing to put pressure on witnesses to get them to say whatever they want them to say; anything.”
Or download full interview;
“[T]hey will do anything to get you put into prison. We live in far more of a police state than anybody ever wanted to think. Look at what has happened to Congressman Steve Stockman.”
No. The corruption is not just “at the top.” While certainly there are some unbiased employees, from the working level prosecutor through the federal bench, the Justice Department stacks the deck against their prey and has increasingly used corrupt tactics to lock up and silence those who buck the status quo. My husband is one of many unjustly targeted by a corrupt judicial system.
Patti Stockman has been married to Steve for 31 years, is a conservative activist in her own right, and partnered alongside him in all his political endeavors. She has her own professional career, having worked for NASA 35 years. For more information on her husband’s case, visit www.DefendAPatriot.com.

In typical carnival barker fashion, Donald Trump was all over the media bragging on himself for the supposed killing of so-called ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. But as with virtually everything else pertaining to America’s phony “war on terror,” this is just continued propaganda. This is Donald Trump’s attempt to upstage Barack Obama’s “killing” of Osama bin Laden.
As with most every claim the Western media or the US military makes without any sort of evidence, this most recent story cannot or shouldn’t be trusted, especially when there’s little to nothing that can be verified about it.
Timing is Everything
The supposed military operation – unfolding just miles from the Syrian-Turkish border – comes at a time when the prospects of America’s proxy war in Syria have reached all-time lows.
First – US proxy forces jointly armed and aided by Turkey as well as other US allies – have been all but eliminated from the battlefield with their remnants residing in Idlib, increasingly encircled by Syrian forces.
Attempts by the US to intervene in Syria directly to oversee the overthrow of the government in Damascus was also thwarted by Russia’s military intervention beginning in 2015.
US forces have most recently retreated from the Syrian-Turkish border in Syria’s northeast, setting the stage for a joint Russian-Turkish agreement that appears poised to see the disarmament of Kurdish militants or their possible integration into Syria’s security forces. The deal also aims at fully restoring Syria’s territorial integrity – fully derailing Washington’s secondary plans to “Balkanize” Syria.
The Russian-Turkish deal comes at a time when US-Turkish relations are particularly shaky, with Ankara realigning itself within a Middle East emerging out from under decades of US hegemony.
Despite alleged ISIS leader al Baghdadi lurking about Syria and Iraq throughout the duration of Syria’s war – why has the US with all its vast resources only now been able to “find” and “eliminate” him? The timing and location couldn’t have been better for the US if the entire incident was staged.
And regardless of whether the US staged the operation or not – the truth about who truly created and directed ISIS throughout the duration of the Syrian war – resigns al Baghdadi’s death ultimately as theater.
The US Created ISIS to Begin With…
The US has admittedly spent billions of dollars arming militants throughout the duration of the Syrian war.
Articles like Foreign Policy’s “The Pentagon Is Spending $2 Billion Running Soviet-Era Guns to Syrian Rebels” or the New York Times’ “C.I.A. Arms for Syrian Rebels Supplied Black Market, Officials Say” in headlines alone indicate the extensive nature of US efforts to arm militants fighting against the Syrian government from 2011 onward.
If the US and its allies were providing billions in weapons, equipment, and other forms of support to militants claimed to be “moderates,” who was providing even more weapons, equipment, and other forms of support allowing extremist organizations like ISIS to rise to prominence and even supposedly displace or lure over US-backed militants?
The answer is simple – the US – as it has in all of its other wars of aggression – simply lied. There were never any “moderate” militants. The US deliberately misled the public about the nature of its proxy war in Syria. From the beginning – in fact long before the beginning of the Syrian war – the US was knowingly funneling aid into the hands of extremists with ties to groups like Al Qaeda and its various affiliates.
Far from mere speculation, it was the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) itself in a 2012 leaked memo that admitted, “the West, Gulf monarchies, and Turkey” were behind the rise of what at the time was being called a “Salafist principality.”
Thus – at best – a US military operation eliminating the figurehead of ISIS is more akin to liquidating one’s own assets rather than any sort of “victory.” Much more likely still – is that the operation is mere theater – with the US seeking relevance and leverage amid the conflict it itself engineered, triggered, and deliberately perpetuated – but now finds itself being evicted from.
While the world waits for evidence – if any evidence even emerges – analysts and interested parties alike would benefit more from looking at how the US plans to leverage and move onward from this supposed “raid” rather than obsessing over the supposed details of it.
One may hope the US uses it as a spectacular finale before fully withdrawing from Syria – including from its oilfields – and allowing the nation and its people to finally and fully restore order while undertaking the long process of reconstruction.
The proximity to Turkey’s border and recent rhetoric coming out of Washington suggests it may be leveraged to prolong the conflict further. [Emphasis added]
This was an episode that called for restraint, as it is not the first time the death of Al Baghdadi has been announced, only to be later proven wrong. The Guardian had him paralyzed with a severe spinal injury after an airstrike in April 2015, Syrian state TV reported him dead in June 2017, Iranian TV said he was “definitely dead” and the Russians claimed as much again, all in the same month.
In July 2017 he was pronounced dead once more, then alive and then, to clear the matter up, a year later, he emerged from obscurity with a new propaganda video.
And, as in the case with the “killing” of bin Laden, Baghdadi’s body was BURIED AT SEA, thus eliminating the potential of an independent examination of the body. In addition, several published Middle Eastern reports (ignored by the western media, of course) have said that Baghdadi was actually a high-level Israeli Mossad operative who—like bin Laden—died several years before his supposed assassination. If true, indications are that Baghdadi likely passed away peacefully in an Israeli hospital with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sitting affectionately by his side.
What can be said with absolute certainty is that U.S. troops did NOT kill Osama bin Laden. They may have killed one of his numerous “look-alikes,” but bin Laden had succumbed to kidney failure years before the faked assassination.
Back before Alex Jones became a toady for Donald Trump and Israel, Infowars.com published a cogent analysis of the bin Laden propaganda show:
Merely a week after President Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden, there is literally a deluge of evidence that clearly indicates the whole episode has been manufactured for political gain and to return Americans to a state of post-9/11 intellectual castration so that they can be easily manipulated in the run up to the 2012 election. The Bin Laden fable is a contrived hoax.
Before last Sunday’s raid, every intelligence analyst, geopolitical commentator or head of state worth their salt was on record as stating that Osama Bin Laden was already dead, and that he probably died many years ago, from veteran CIA officer Robert Baer, to former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, to former FBI head of counterterrorism Dale Watson. In addition, back in 2002, Alex Jones was told directly by two separate high level sources that Bin Laden was already dead and that his death would be announced at the most politically opportune moment. Top US government insider Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik, a man who held numerous different influential positions under five different Presidents, serving as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Nixon, Ford and Carter, told the Alex Jones Show last week that Bin Laden died of marfan syndrome shortly after he was visited by CIA physicians at the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001.
Whether U.S. forces truly killed Baghdadi is anybody’s guess. But there is no guessing about the fact that Infowars’ assessment that Obama used the theatrics of a bin Laden assassination as a means to advance his re-election efforts of 2012 could be said word-for-word about Donald Trump and Baghdadi. Here is the quote again:
Merely a week after President Obama [President Trump] announced the death of Osama Bin Laden [Baghdadi], there is literally a deluge of evidence that clearly indicates the whole episode has been manufactured for political gain and to return Americans to a state of post-9/11 intellectual castration so that they can be easily manipulated in the run up to the 2012  election.
Again, “the whole episode has been manufactured for political gain and to return Americans to a state of post-9/11 intellectual castration so that they can be easily manipulated in the run up to the  election.” YES, INDEED!
And Trump’s showmanship over the Baghdadi “killing” demonstrates, once again, the deep-seated character of Donald Trump to manipulate and fabricate virtually everything for his own personal self-aggrandizement. From a scriptural/Christian perspective, Donald Trump is the total and complete OPPOSITE of everything the Holy Spirit of God would place into the heart and soul of a man. Trump is the personification of lust, greed, arrogance, conceit, haughtiness, pride and self-exaltation. Yet Christians continue to hold this reprobate in high esteem. I’ve never seen anything like it. And I will never understand it.
The other thing this episode shows is the way America’s political leaders (from BOTH political parties) continue to use the phony “war on terror” not only for political gain but also for the purpose of propaganda against the American people.
Without a doubt, the “killing” of Baghdadi is being used to resurrect ISIS terrorists in the region and will “require” the U.S. military to beef up its “war on terror.” Donald Trump is NOT reducing the U.S. military effort in the Middle East; he is escalating it exponentially—not to mention unconstitutionally.
The US military has started reinforcing its positions around oil fields in eastern Syria, saying the new deployments are part of its continuing counter-terrorist mission after the killing of the Islamic State leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
General Mark Milley, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, said on Monday that US forces would remain in Tanf along the Iraqi border, and more were being sent to the oil fields operated by the US energy corporation ConocoPhillips around Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria.
Video footage from the region showed US military convoys re-entering Syria, days after Donald Trump had ordered them out in advance of a Turkish invasion. The change of mind reportedly came after Pentagon officials persuaded the president that it was essential to protect east Syrian oil resources.
“Keep the oil, I’ve always said that. We’ve secured the oil,” Trump told a police chiefs’ conference on Monday. The president has said that his aim would be to secure a US share of Syrian oil revenues, which is potentially a war crime.
What authority does Donald Trump have to seize the oil fields of an independent sovereign nation? What would America do if Russia or China tried to seize the U.S. oil fields near Houston and Galveston, Texas? What authority does Trump have to green light an invasion of Syria by Turkey? Talk about impeachable offenses: There they are.
And as was pointed out at the beginning of this column, ISIS and al-Qaeda are the direct creations of America’s CIA, Israel’s Mossad and Saudi Arabia. Osama bin Laden, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Iran—or any other Muslim entity—had absolutely NOTHING to do with the 9/11 attacks.
The research that has been done into the 9/11 attacks by professional independent investigators has undisputedly proven that everything the government and mainstream media have told us about those attacks is a complete falsehood. Christopher Bollyn is one of those researchers.
Bollyn’s book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East should be the first book you read to start learning the truth about 9/11.
Whether Baghdadi is dead or not is irrelevant. This entire episode is about Donald Trump following the pattern laid down by his predecessors G.W. Bush and Barack Obama to use the “war on terror” as a launching pad for his re-election campaign.
Oh! As an aside, here is something else Christian conservatives will choose to ignore:
The amount of money the federal government collected in individual income taxes and the total amount of money the federal government spent both set records in fiscal 2019, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released Friday afternoon. (Source)
Yes, Donald Trump has now replaced Barack Obama as “The King of Debt.” I really don’t know why I bother to mention it. No one cares about it.
Without a doubt, duplicitous, conniving, power-mad presidents will continue to use 9/11 and the “war on terror” to manipulate the American people into voting for them under the guise of “national security.” The truth is, the entire storyline of 9/11 and the “war on terror” is a BIG, FAT LIE.
The “war on terror” is nothing more than a giant hoax that allows the U.S. military to kill people on behalf of Israel; it perpetuates the myth that we need “homeland security” in the form of a burgeoning police state; and it creates a contrived platform from which unscrupulous politicians can manipulate voters into keeping them in power under the phony rubric that they are “protecting” America.
Will the American people EVER wake up to this charade? It doesn’t look like it.
P.S. I strongly urge readers to order Christopher Bollyn’s tremendously important book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.

As I said in this column last week, Republicans Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio are joining forces with liberal Democrats to soon enact “red flag” gun confiscation laws. I also reported on the push for the enactment of other gun control measures such as universal background checks being promoted on Capitol Hill and by the White House here.
Yes, Donald Trump is calling for “red flag” gun confiscation laws and universal background checks. Trump said, “I have an appetite for background checks. We’re going to be doing background checks. We’re going to be filling in . . . the loopholes.”
I urge readers to watch my 8-minute video exposing Donald Trump’s betrayal of his promise to protect the 2nd Amendment and share it with as many of your friends as you can. If we don’t convince our U.S. senators to reject these egregious gun control measures, THEY WILL BE PASSED, AND TRUMP WILL SIGN THEM INTO LAW. We have about two or three weeks to convince our senators to reject these new gun control laws. That’s it.
Please watch the video and share it with everyone you can.
If law-abiding gun owners don’t call their U.S. senators en masse, and I mean posthaste, you are very likely to wake up one morning around 4am to the sound of a SWAT team breaking down your door to confiscate your guns, prepared to kill you or any member of your family who resists. Why? Perhaps because a gun-hating neighbor hates you having guns or a relative doesn’t like you and is looking for any way to “teach you a lesson” or your ex-spouse is looking for any way to “get even” with you or an anti-gun cop with a grudge wants to send a political message or a family doctor or school teacher overheard one of your children talk about how many guns daddy has and became alarmed, etc., ad infinitum.
Plus, the FBI has just recently stated that if you believe in “conspiracy theories,” you are a “domestic terrorist threat.” That statement is from an FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019. That FBI designation alone could very easily precipitate a “red flag” gun confiscation order being rendered against you.
And Donald Trump himself recently demonstrated how dangerous “red flag” laws are. In a tweet on August 13, President Trump said,
Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!
Are you paying attention? Donald Trump was threatening to use a “red flag” law to authorize police agencies to take away an American citizen’s Natural God-given right of self-defense simply because Trump didn’t like what the citizen said—about him.
Folks, don’t you see? Those in authority can use “red flag” gun confiscation laws against ANYONE they want and for ANY REASON they want.
In other words, there doesn’t have to be a reason. Under “red flag” laws, all it takes for police to come and seize your guns is for someone to make a “red flag” accusation against you. That’s it. And, yes, it really IS that easy.
“Red flag” laws not only eviscerate the 2nd Amendment, but the 1st Amendment, 4th Amendment, 5th Amendment, 6th Amendment, 7th Amendment and 8th Amendment.
The enforcement of “red flag” laws is actually much worse than you think, so says Donald Kilmer, an attorney who has litigated and defended against many state and federal gun charges.
Everyone is debating “red flag” laws like they’re some new thing, but California has had variations of them for decades. We call them domestic violence restraining orders, civil harassment restraining orders, workplace restraining orders, elder abuse restraining orders, mental health seizures and prohibition orders, and, more recently, gun violence restraining orders.
They’re all meant to disarm dangerous people — but they’re all fundamentally flawed.
None of these red flag laws would have prevented recent mass shootings. And in my 23 years practicing law in the heart of Silicon Valley, I have litigated dozens of these cases. I’ve seen firsthand the practical enforcement problems that emerge in real-life cases.
These kinds of court orders are usually obtained from a judge ex parte. That’s fancy Latin for: The judge only hears one side of the story, it is not your side, and you may not even know about it until after the fact. Then they immediately strip you of fundamental constitutional rights for the duration of the orders. You’ll get your “full due process” hearing, but not until later.
And any violation of these orders is separately punishable as a crime. So even if you are innocent of the underlying conduct that inspired the “red flag” order, if you violate the order pending your hearing, you can still face criminal charges.
That kind of situation is ripe for danger. In one situation in Baltimore, police ended up shooting [and killing] a man when they came to collect his guns under a “red flag” law.
In one case in Southern California, a client had to pay a $1,000 ransom, that was reduced from an initial “offer” of $4,000, to get his 50-gun collection back.
Experienced counsel to defend you in a “due process” hearing will run about $15,000 in fees. If you lose and want to appeal, expect to spend another $25,000 to $100,000 in fees and costs. And even with all of that, you might still lose.
To win these hearings, you have to refute an allegation that you pose a danger to yourself or others where a judge already issued a temporary ex parte order that concluded you were already a danger. Many judges will likely err on the side of caution, and against your rights.
As a practical matter, if the government’s interest is in separating a potentially-dangerous person from guns, it makes no sense to leave other guns that belong to family members in the home. So, if you live with someone that gets a red flag order issued against them, then you and others living in the same home risk losing your guns, too.
Even if you win, the judge isn’t going to just hand your guns back to you at the end of the hearing. It’s probably a good idea to “lawyer up” just to go through the process of recovering your guns, so you don’t go to jail or prison for accidentally breaking an obscure firearm law or regulation. You wouldn’t want to set off a red flag.
Law-abiding gun owners better get a big whiff of reality SOON and realize that if they are going to maintain the right to keep and bear arms much longer, THEY must step up to the plate and defend that right—and I mean RIGHT NOW.
The NRA is compromised and is in complete disarray and is offering NO HELP. Donald Trump has already proven he has ZERO fidelity to the 2nd Amendment (or to the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, for that matter). Most Christians and conservatives are in a state of deep denial and hibernation, believing that their yellow-haired savior would never betray them, in spite of the fact that he has already betrayed them—repeatedly.
It is up to individual freedomists and gun owners who are willing to fight for their right to keep and bear arms to fend off this assault against our 2nd Amendment liberties. Reinforcements are not coming; it is up to YOU AND ME.
How much does the 2nd Amendment mean to you? Each of us will determine the answer to that question by what we do or do not do RIGHT NOW.
P.S. I, again, URGE readers to watch my 8-minute video regarding Trump’s betrayal of the 2nd Amendment and the push for the enactment of “red flag” gun confiscation laws and share it with everyone you can. In the video, I also include the phone numbers for both the White House and U.S. Senate, where you can call and voice your opposition.
P.P.S. Here is my video Open Letter To Our Legislator, Judges And Lawmen regarding “red flag” gun confiscation laws. Please watch it and share.
Published: Thursday, August 15, 2019
This column is an unapologetic appeal to action.
In 2016, Donald Trump said, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters.” He must still believe that, because after promising his supporters that he will protect the 2nd Amendment, he is right now in the process of enacting most of the Democrats’ ANTI-2nd Amendment agenda.
That agenda being:
1. A complete ban on semi-automatic rifles
2. Raising the legal age to buy a gun to 21 (So, a 19 or 20-year-old can have a gun and go to war, but he cannot have a gun to defend himself at home.)
3. Banning high-capacity magazines (magazines holding over 10 rounds)
4. Mandating universal background checks (which would make ALL private sales illegal, including the transfer of a gun from father to son)
5. Implementing national “red flag” gun confiscation laws (which is totalitarian to its core—making a person guilty until proven innocent and beginning the process of despotic gun confiscation nationwide)
And if you think that “red flag” gun confiscation laws don’t affect you, think again. The FBI has just recently stated that if you believe in conspiracy theories, you are a “domestic terrorist threat.” That statement is from an FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019. That FBI designation alone could very easily precipitate a “red flag” gun confiscation order being rendered against you.
And Donald Trump is now the loudest voice demanding that “red flag” gun confiscation laws be enacted. He is even using his daughter, Ivanka, to lobby congressmen and senators to pass these gun control measures.
Yes, of those 5 Democrat gun control agendas (including “red flag” gun confiscation laws), Trump is supporting—and PUSHING—4 of them. The only one he’s not pushing YET is the ban on semi-automatics.
George Bush 1 lost his bid for re-election because he broke his promise when he said, “Read my lips: No new taxes” and then turned around and signed massive tax increases upon the American people.
Donald Trump’s “read my lips” promise was his promise to protect the 2nd Amendment.
This battle is going to be won or lost in the U.S. Senate. Trump says he has enough influence over the GOP-controlled Senate to pass these gun control measures. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is saying the same thing—so are Republican gun grabbers Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.
If conservatives do not arise EN MASSE NOW and send Donald Trump the loudest and clearest message that if he enacts these gun control proposals, he will NOT receive their vote next year, America will be saddled with more communistic gun control laws than any president has enacted since Lyndon Baines Johnson in the 1960s.
THIS IS DEADLY SERIOUS!
I urge everyone reading this column to contact your two U.S. senators and tell them in the strongest terms that they cannot support these gun control measures without losing your vote FOREVER. And tell Mr. Trump the same thing. And get every friend you can to do the same thing.
The NRA is compromised and is in complete disarray and will be of little help in this fight. It’s up to us. It’s up to the people who elected Donald Trump to stop this madness.
If we allow Donald Trump to enact these egregious gun control and gun confiscation measures on America, we may as well have elected Hillary Clinton. If Donald Trump cannot keep his promise to protect the 2nd Amendment, the people of America who voted for him CANNOT continue to support him. There can be NO MORE EXCUSES.
Montana Governor and Democratic presidential candidate Steve Bullock is saying that Democrats can win the White House next year on gun control. He’s wrong! But what is true is that Donald Trump can LOSE the White House next year if he passes more gun control, which he is currently trying to do.
But this is not about winning or losing an election. This is about preserving our God-given right to keep and bear arms. And that right is more important than Donald Trump or Joe Biden or ANY politician or ANY election.
Without the right to keep and bear arms, we don’t even need elections.
Do it NOW, and do it LOUD!
