    “President Trump is the most misunderstood, mischaracterized, and unfairly demonized POTUS ever to occupy the office. He also is the greatest president of the United States of all time.” Quote Lou Dobbs. Quite a statement and I agree!
    100% agree with the first sentence; as for the second sentence, let's let history judge on that one.
    agreed, the first part is demonstrably true, the 2nd is hyperbolic; though nxt term maybe proves it true?
    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.
    Where are you?

    I suppose this site fundamentally is for both fact, opinions and beliefs... So, having said that... Here goes...

    Fact is? I no longer trust the media and their spin on the true situation around us.. The only thing I can trust is what I see with my own eyes, and hope that what we are being shown in the media is true.. Most times it is not... So I won't post any videos with the opinions of others, including the media. And the alt media is just like the big media, only they're sharing their opinions, and sources that support only those for the most part..



    As for opinions? I feel that we all know this world needs some serious change, and FAST... With epidemics, AI starting to influence things, intrusions into privacy, and a group of the few, leading the many into enslavement and chaos, I feel we desperately need change equally as quickly.

    About Trump and his behaviors... Truth is, we all make mistakes, we say things, that may at times, make people wonder about our true character. People are bashing Trump because he took advantage of the tax loopholes all other rich people put into place to protect themselves, and their wealth, and it is refreshing that someone is finally honest enough to say as much... (About his taxes).. A rich man bragging about being with many women, and having women throw themselves at him, merely because he has money? Honestly with the ego of humans, and the way others treat those that have more than them? This would probably happen to most everyone who suddenly had a lot of money, and was a highly visible person... many of those using that as the reason to not elect him? Would probably have made that same mistake themselves,had they not known it would have been held against them later...

    I once voted Democrat... I believed that they fought for the underdogs.. But the older I get, the more I see them as doing nothing more than promoting socialism. Where the population depends on the government to support them, and in exchange? They hand over all of their own freedoms. I once needed help financially, but found I made too much for "Their" help, because I was a hard working individual. The alternative? Quit my job for free handouts? That was never going to happen, and it took me over 30 years to pay off medical debt I gained by having a child that needed 2 open heart surgeries, all while buying my own home.. (My husband and I) ... It wasn't easy, but the pride we gained in working hard, and not giving in to allow someone else power over me, because I took the "Easy way out"? Well, that's priceless..

    This country was founded on everyone working hard for "The American Dream".. The "American Dream" is now coming here, and seeing how many freebies one can get... Those unemployed, homeless and drug addicted are getting more money per week right now than those working 40-65 hours a week.. No joke... And it's sad in my opinion, as the responsibility for paying for those freebies falls onto the shoulders of the middle class. And eventually their backs will break if we don't change that, and we will no longer have the America we were once proud of.

    My belief is that this country was founded on individuals not afraid to work hard, to make sacrifices, and to operate with honor and integrity.. To do without, until the time came that they could afford the little luxuries they wanted. And that is how I lived my life. But during that time, I watched others collapse, and "Give in", and take the easy route. The help systems put into place have become a safety net for those now unwilling to step up to the plate and contribute...

    Recently I changed my party affiliation to Republican. Why?

    Most of the threads here speak about the woes of the world, the things we need worry about, and hopefully change. And I began to think about what would happen in this country, if we were walled off from the rest of the world, and we all had a "It's MINE" attitude. It was a sobering exercise.. We make little to nothing in this country anymore, as everything has been farmed out to other countries in lue of lower costs.. I used to drive past auto manufacturing plants as a child.. Orchards, manufacturing plants... They're all gone now.. Replaced with big tech companies, and the Starbucks and donut shops that support them... We have been reduced to a country of businesses that support the businesses that have sold out, and shipped their manufacturing to other countries. There are nothing but fast food, coffee shops, basic medical facilities, and a few pocket industries that remain, such as the entertainment industry.. And smaller family businesses left.. And those are being so heavily regulated, that California is becoming a burning ghost town.... Along with those that support the businesses that shipped their manufacturing overseas. Few pay enough for any American to actually "Thrive"

    Almost everything is going online, and the biggest industry we seem to have now is the delivery industry.. To deliver everything that is now being sold online. And while this may be good in some ways? As it frees up space on this rock from all of the strip malls and such? It takes away jobs. It takes away a foundation.. A chain of supply and demand where everyone has a role.

    I realize that computers and the internet are changing that as well, and as such, we do need to adjust the way we run things, but the Democrats just want to hand out free money, and with that, dictate what everyone has to do with it, OR ELSE.. I feel we need to go backwards and use tech as a tool, not as the leading edge to where our civilization goes... Which we are.

    There are a lot of things happening right now.. We have the Covid situation, causing many businesses to close down, mostly the small family ones.. We have people failing to frequent those businesses for fear they will get sick. We have the government handing out cash, and we have Big box retailers all closing down, at least in my area. We have the perfect storm brewing.. Like 911, the stage has been set for a power shift.. Where once we gave up freedoms for safety, or the perception of such, now we have this happening worldwide, and they're calling it a good thing.

    I won't say Covid doesn't exist, but I do know that people are being written off as having died of Covid, when they died of other causes... I know several people that have recently passed away from other causes, being labeled Covid deaths. 2 were extended family members, so I don't have to believe others when they suggest it happened in their circle.

    I am voting for Trump because I believe in the America that I was sold as a child. Where people had integrity, honor, they worked for what they had, and they fought back when someone tried to lead them into the temptation to take the easy way out. Because they knew that giving up, meant surely that they would then become the underling to someone that didn't at all, have their best interests at heart. I can see how politicians manipulate the masses into believing that they are somehow needed, and that they're the ones making our lives better. I assure you they're not.

    If you just sit back and listen to the language they use, and truly think about what they're saying when they're on a stage "Grandstanding", it would begin to make you nauseous. For example, a few years back, we had some things happen in California that led the masses to believe our infrastructure was failing, bridges, levies, dams, etc... And when it came for election time, both local, and in the state elections for leadership, the politicians stood up and took credit for "Giving us" this and that.. I believe at one time the governor actually took full credit for building a bridge, stating... "I built you a bridge, what did they do?"...

    My first thought was.. "Really? I would love to have seen him on a steel line, welding the steel that held that bridge together"... Truth be told, WE built ourselves a new bridge, WE paid for the material with the fruit of our collective labors in taxes.. And then WE offered up those that specialized in bridge building, and they then built that bridge. It seems "WE" only get new things repaired or built during election seasons, where a candidate can take credit for something they did nothing to effect.. But those that drive over that bridge daily? Were probably so happy to have it rebuilt that they voted for the man who "Gave it to them"... And I am certain that if we removed the politicians and their greedy accountants from the picture, that bridge never would have needed to be rebuilt because the locals, having driven it daily, and knowing it needed repairs, would have decided long ago to make those repairs, rather than wait for some "Officials" to give up a vacation and "Finally ALLOW" for their funds to be directed towards something really needed for a change.

    In a smaller community, when something needs to be done, everyone gathers together, and takes care of it. There is no waiting for someone to say it is ok to get together and do such things.. And if one person tried to take credit for the completed project, while those that did the real work sat in the background? I bet they would be chased out of the community, so why are we allowing those in the government to do such things?

    I believe that Trump is rebuilding THAT America. Or trying to. I am sick of watching spoiled "Lifers"... Or politicians that spent their lives learning how to manipulate the masses, direct those who have better sense than them, into believing they're powerless. Half of them can't even appear at their events looking sober, or having any true intentions on helping make America the place it once was... And while America will never look the same as tech progresses, and our societies change around that, if they do not take into account that it affects everyone, we will have many fall through the cracks.

    As far as Black lives matter? ALL LIVES MATTER... I truly believe that they try to convince us that there are still divisions between races here. And there are, but I believe they are now being used to capitalize on our separation, because they know if we all get together and figure out their game, they will fall. News flash, we are ALL enslaved equally, then turned against each other deliberately... All of us are calculated, and given numbers, and we are nothing more to them than a resource.. Blacks, Whites, Latino's, Filipino's, Asians, you name it, we are all in this together. Did you know that as a white American I cannot take advantage of ANY of the resources that these others get? Is that the American way? Why? Because I am supposedly privileged. I was born to a single working mother, with no resources, and had to go to work at 15.. I couldn't go to college because I was working a minimum wage job to pay my own rent at 17, because my mother was an alcoholic. I tested at 146 IQ, a genius in the eyes of the "Structure", yet I made minimum wage until I was finally promoted into a managerial position in my place of work.

    So what does that say about society? When geniuses are reduced to minimum wage jobs because they're white? And we have politicians doing nothing for their positions, other than checking a box that suggests they're a minority and their voices should be heard, then doing more of the same to the country? Because they believe the rhetoric. They don't want smart politicians in positions of power, they want those that feel they're owed something, as they're easier to manipulate. Have you listened to political debates recently? It sounds more like a bunch of spoiled brats fighting over who gets the next handout! Very few have any sense of pride or honor, and even less even have a sense of determination to turn this country back into something to be proud of. WHITES TOO..

    We need LESS handouts and more opportunities to show what we can do.. Most spending tens of thousands of dollars or more, gaining fancy degrees aren't even getting a career in the field they specialize in these days.. A document that suggests you can read and take tests, determines whether or not you are capable of handling true situations? Book smarts does not equal intelligence in the real world.. I find that most that work through the "Hard Way" tend to be better in true life situations, than those that read about them and then test well at the end.

    Point in case, those that learn psychology out of books, yet never actually deal with humans, until they get their degree. Are often so far removed from the true emotional situations their patients have to deal with, that when they get into their jobs, they have nothing more but a set of rules to follow, as to how to handle them. As they're operating within a "System" where everything is regulated.. And the individual patient no longer truly matters, so long as the systems tell them they must do A, B, and C. And our government is no different..

    So long as we allow "THEM" to convince us that we are racist, and have something to feel guilty about, some will behave accordingly. I am tired of people telling my generation, that we somehow owe others for something that our forefathers did to them, before I was even born. Sharing the history, is meant so we never repeat it, but sadly many carry that as a sense of entitlement to them for somehow being wronged. If we don't wake up and change things, it will only get worse. And I do not want that to be the world that my grand daughters learn. I want them to learn that ALL men are created equal.. And LIVE IT... But we must all be treated as such before we can do this. So we must learn from the mistakes of the past and drop such behaviors, and learn to recognize when we are being manipulated to repeat them.

    So I am voting for Trump.. Because I do not believe that the Democrats have our true best interests at heart. We NEED to work, or we will fail to thrive.. We earn pride by working hard.. Handouts teach us to be lazy.. And that is NOT what America was founded upon.

    I cannot believe the disgusting things that Joe Biden has been saying on his campaign.. They're so used to using racial division that they're trying to act "Cool" by using it now.. "If you don't vote for Biden, you ain't black"... WHAT???!!! If anyone, black or white can't see how they're throwing their game in our face by now? There is no hope for us. Democrat=Obama right? So that must equal black? What exactly did he mean by that? Sorry Joe, the black community is smarter than that, in fact we ALL are smarter than that. While you were trying to sound cool? You looked like a fool! (And that is a nice way to say it)...

    I can't vote for someone who grabs little girls in photo ops, and sniffs them, grabs their faces with both hands and acts like they're property to be manipulated. He is creepy, literally... Their debate was a joke. And while some saw both of them acting a fool? I saw Trump just tired of playing the same politics as usual game, and I too, wouldn't have taken the debate seriously either.. It is nothing more than a circus anymore, why not openly treat it as such? Hopefully all got the same opinion when watching it.

    Trump is not only the lesser of two evils in my opinion, he is the only option we have, with any sense of the OLD AMERICAN DREAM... With elections that ONLY allow you to see the candidates for the party that you are registered in, rather than ALL of them? I HAD TO go Republican.

    Most do not realize that once you register either Republican or Democrat, those are the only ballots that you get. I learned this once when names were missing on my ballot. We need to open the elections back up so ALL people can be seen, not just 2 people.. We need fair and honest elections, and we need to change the way we run the elections entirely. until then we will always be picking really between two people. And many times, neither should be president.

    But WE need to recognize that we are the ones who dictate this. Most wait until they learn what we are going to be told what to do rather than tell them what we are willing to accept, and so long as we just play along, they will continue to manipulate us. Making politics a career, rather than what it was meant to be. Where there was no pay, just travel expenses so people didn't get into politics for financial gain, etc. Why is it these politicians walk away from their offices with millions in assetts? Interests in HUGE corporations? Etc..

    Sad indeed... Hopefully Trump will at the very least .. remind Americans that this is OUR country, not theirs.. WE have allowed them to sell us the notion that they can hand out pieces of paper, badges, certificates that dictate who has power over us. Only during election season do they truly try to convince us they're one of us, and working hard for us. If you believe that, I have a bridge in California that a Governor supposed built......

    Just dropping this gem of a quote that about sums it all up:

    "So let me get this straight, Donald Trump got impeached for something Joe Biden did..?

    And he got investigated for 3 years for something Hillary Clinton did..?"

    The swamp contains the monsters, many of their names we know or can guess. But we should all be profoundly aware by now that the dirty water that constitutes the swamp, therefore hiding and protecting the monsters...

    ...is the mainstream media itself.

    They only pursue that which is in their (and their masters') best interests, and twist, spin, cover-up (or ignore), that which is not.



    There's literally no one there.

    Trump just quietly passed an executive order that could destroy a future Biden administration

    "I suspect Trump passed this not because he might loose the election but when he wins he will be able to more easily remove some people that were dificult to remove before.
    Heis very clever and timing is everything
    Chris
    https://uk.yahoo.com/news/trump-just...153309060.html


    Donald Trump’s latest executive order could give him the power to mount a scorched-earth campaign which would cripple a future Biden administration.

    In the event the incumbent president loses his re-election bid, this order could give him largely unfettered authority to fire experts like Dr Anthony Fauci while leaving behind a corps of embedded loyalists to undermine his successor, according to federal employment law experts.

    The order, which the White House released late Wednesday evening, would strip civil service protections from a broad swath of career civil servants if it is decided that they are in “confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions” — a description previously reserved for the political appointees who come and go with each change in administration. It does that by creating a new category for such positions that do not turn over from administration to administration and reclassifying them as part of that category. The Office of Personnel Management — essentially the executive branch’s human resources department — has been charged with implementing the order by publishing a “preliminary” list of positions to be moved into the new category on what could President Donald Trump’s last full day in office: January 19, 2021.

    The range of workers who could be stripped of protections and placed in this new category is vast, experts say, and could include most of the non-partisan experts — scientists, doctors, lawyers, economists — whose work to advise and inform policymakers is supposed to be done in a way that is fact-driven and devoid of politics. Trump has repeatedly clashed with such career workers on a variety of settings, ranging from his desire to present the Covid-19 pandemic as largely over, to his attempts to enable his allies to escape punishment for federal crimes, to his quixotic insistence that National Weather Service scientists back up his erroneous claim that the state of Alabama was threatened by a hurricane which was not heading in its direction.

    Creating the new category — known as “Schedule F” — and moving current civil servants into it could allow a lame-duck President Trump to cripple his successor’s administration by firing any career federal employees who’ve been included on the list. It also could allow Trump administration officials to skirt prohibitions against “burrowing in” — the heavily restricted practice of converting political appointees (known as “Schedule C” employees) into career civil servants — by hiring them under the new category for positions which would not end with Trump’s term. Another provision orders agencies to take steps to prohibit removing “Schedule F” appointees from their jobs on the grounds of “political affiliation,” which could potentially prevent a future administration from firing unqualified appointees because of their association with President Trump.

    “It's a two-pronged attack — a Hail Mary pass to enable them to do some burrowing in if they lose the election,” said Walter Shaub, who ran the US Office of Government Ethics during the last four years of the Obama administration and first six months of the Trump administration. “But if they win the election, then anything goes for the destruction of the civil service… [This could] take us back to the spoils system and all the corruption that comes with it.”

    Shaub explained that at the core of it, a non-partisan civil service is one of the most basic anti-corruption measures that any government can implement “because they free federal employees to disobey illegal orders, be ethical, and resist fraud, waste, and abuse”.

    “Taking those away creates a cadre of people who are either too intimidated by or loyal to a politician instead of the rule of law and the Constitution,” he said. “That’s the goal here.”

    The head of the largest federal employee union, American Federation of Government Employees National President Everett Kelley, decried the move in a statement on Thursday, calling it “the most profound undermining of the civil service in our lifetimes”.

    “Through this order, President Trump has declared war on the professional civil service by giving himself the authority to fill the government with his political cronies who will pledge their unwavering loyalty to him, not to America,” Kelley added. “By targeting federal workers whose jobs involve government policies, the real-world implications of this order will be disastrous for public health, the environment, the defense of our nation, and virtually every facet of our lives.”

    Virginia Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly, who chairs the House of Representatives subcommittee overseeing civil service issues, called the order “yet another attack on federal employees that addresses absolutely none of the issues that can hinder effective federal recruitment and hiring”. He added that he saw it as “a cheap ploy to let the Trump administration replace talent and acumen with fealty and self-dealing.” And Max Stier, president and CEO of the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, called the order “deeply troubling” and warned that it “has the potential to impact wide swathes of federal employees over the next few months without engagement from Congress, civil servants and other key stakeholders”.

    “Being able to place any number of existing career positions into this new Schedule F not only blurs the line between politics and the neutral competency of the career civil service, it obliterates it,” he added.

    A Republican source who served as a top federal personnel executive under previous Republican administrations offered a far more succinct review of Trump’s latest executive action: “It's just bad no matter how you view it.”

    Administration sources say this latest directive is largely the brainchild of James Sherk, a top Trump aide whose work on the Domestic Policy Council has been largely focused on devising methods by which the Trump administration can undermine government employee unions and render toothless the civil service system. Such endeavors are longstanding goals of the American conservative movement, which has for years viewed the largely unionized, highly educated, racially diverse federal workforce as a hostile occupying army loyal to the more reliably pro-union Democratic Party.

    But while past Republican presidents were willing to at least pay lip service to the advantages of having a skilled, professionalized and non-political federal workforce, advocates of gutting the civil service have found a willing ally in Trump, who has regularly attacked the federal workforce as a Democrat-aligned “deep state” that has worked to undermine his presidency.

    Earlier this year, then-White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said the White House planned on taking steps to remove what he said were “people in the bowels of the federal government working against this president” and pursuing “their own selfish political agenda” rather than showing loyalty to Trump.

    “It’s not a secret that we want people in positions that work with this president, not against him, and too often we have people in this government — I mean the federal government is massive, with millions of people — and there are a lot people out there taking action against this president and when we find them we will take appropriate action,” said Gidley, who left the White House in July and is now the national press secretary for Trump’s re-election campaign.

    The administration’s disdain for career civil servants has only hardened under the pressure of running for a second term bid amid Covid-19.

    Trump has reserved a special level of rage for scientists like Dr Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert. On a call with campaign staffers last week, the president reportedly complained that he could not fire Fauci because doing so would be a PR “bomb”.

    But should he lose his re-election bid in just under two weeks, New Jersey Chief Innovation Officer Beth Noveck — a former New York Law School professor who served as the first US Deputy Chief Technology Officer — said the order appears to be designed to enable him to exact revenge on Fauci and any other federal officials he blames for his loss.

    “It's the twin danger of both firing Fauci and replacing him with Eric Trump's wedding planner permanently,” said Noveck. She compared the order to the fictional “infinity gauntlet” weapon made famous by the Avengers films, citing the way it could enable Trump to get rid of countless tenured federal workers with the stroke of a pen.

    “There's definitely a ‘snap your fingers and get rid of half the civil service’ quality to this,” she added, noting that the order lays out vague and subjective criteria for determining whether an employee reclassified under “Schedule F” can be fired for “poor performance”.

    Noveck added that such vagueness made it possible that Trump could use the “preliminary” list he has ordered OPM to prepare to cripple a Biden administration’s Covid plans by targeting Fauci and other scientists or the administration as a whole by removing large numbers of experienced workers.

    “It's unclear whether this becomes… a blunt instrument in order to do some surgical removal of people they don't like, or whether they're going to actually attempt some sort of bloodletting or purge,” she explained.

    As for the possibility that Trump could use the order to install scores of cronies to sabotage Biden, a former top Department of Health and Human Services official says it is already happening.

    Dr Rick Bright — the former Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response who left government service after Trump officials demoted him for contradicting the President’s attempts to downplay the Covid-19 pandemic — said the Trump administration has already been seeding the government with unqualified loyalists.

    “With an administration change, there are rules in place that say you really don't embed any people, especially in the last period of time, whether it’s a year or six months or so,” he said. “But what we've seen over the last three years is them embedding people all along. So when the [Trump administration] Schedule C's and their other political appointees all go away, there will still be this base of [Trump] people that are in the federal service.”

    “Many of those who were brought in,” Bright said, are “friends and family” of Trump administration officials who initially showed up as contractors: “And then the next thing you know, they’ve changed their business card and their email address and they’re federal employees.”

    Although Trump and his advisors have often struggled with a steep learning curve when it comes to the arcane rules and regulations which govern the federal bureaucracy, both Noveck and Shaub said the order’s dense language was meant to deliberately obscure the purpose of it. They believe it is a sign that Trumpworld is finally getting the hang of manipulating the government it leads to its own ends.

    And while Connolly and other critics of the move presented the harm it would do as “potential,” Shaub said the 90-day clock appeared deliberately timed to give Trump a way to fire a parting shot at his successor should he lose next month. He also suggested that, given the White House’s stated intent to purge disloyal civil servants, there might already be a list of people to fire waiting for use.

    “I think there's a very realistic chance that they could have everything ready to go and cause harm,” he said, “and in the case of a new administration standing up, their actions may not be noticed by the people who can fix it until the harm has really taken effect.”
    Be kind to all life, including your own, no matter what!!

    Another reason... Amy Coney Barrett and... There may be one or more seats to replace in the next four years.

    Even if they ever get the House and the Senate... the legal challenges to "court packing" and other systemic changes to the court system will result in perpetual losses for the left.

    Trump, true to his word and his promises... Trump and the Republican Senate saved the United States of America for the foreseeable future.

    As of tomorrow, Justice Barrett will be a part of all election cases that make it to the supreme court. Stealing this election just got way, way harder.

    The last days of the Trumpian reich

    CJ Hopkins Consent Factory
    Tue, 27 Oct 2020 06:37 UTC



    So, according to the corporate media, this is it for Russian-backed Hitler. Game over. The walls are closing in. It's the last days of the Trumpian Reich. Get those vuvuzelas ready!

    Yes, apparently, the American people, who were all a bunch of Putin-worshipping, white-supremacist neo-Nazis when they elected Trump in 2016, have come to their senses and are going to deliver a landslide victory to "Slappy" Joe Biden and bring down the curtain on this "Age of Darkness," or save the world from "racial Orwellianism" or the "bottomless pit of facsism," or whatever.

    White supremacy will be defeated and globalization will rise from the ashes! Decency will be restored! Love will trump hate! Black lives will matter!

    Slappy and Kamala will immediately fly down and liberate the concentration camps. Trump will face some sort of Nuremberg trial, where he will have to answer for mass-murdering six million people with the Coronavirus by taking off his mask on the White House balcony.

    Hillary Clinton will be appointed ... something.

    Exuberant liberals will pour into the streets, chanting unintelligible slogans through their designer masks and plastic head bubbles. OK, sure, the global economy will be ruined, and millions of people will be unemployed, and homeless, or will have needlessly died, so that GloboCap could simulate an apocalyptic global plague, and foment racialized civil unrest, and just generally create an atmosphere of confusion, depression, and paranoia, but the War on Populism will finally be over ... and GloboCap will start to "Build Back Better!"


    © Build Back Better collage/Ian Jenkins

    OK, it won't be "better" right away. As our friends at the World Economic Forum note:
    "Thanks to the ongoing pandemic, the world is off-balance - and it will remain so for years to come. Far from settling into a 'new normal', we should expect a Covid19 domino effect, triggering further disruptions - positive as well as negative - over the decade ahead. The wave of civil unrest that spread across America and beyond recently may be one example ..."
    So, all right, maybe not quite the end of the War on Populism, but at least a new stage of it. A chaotic, destructive, violent stage of it, which will require a lot of "emergency measures" and will end up radically transforming the planet into one big pathologized-totalitarian marketplace.

    We conspiracy theorists are calling it The Great Reset ... but don't take it from us, take it from TIME magazine, which just happens to be owned by a guy named Marc Benioff, a World Economic Forum Board of Trustees member, whose net worth is approximately $7.8 billion, and who is deeply concerned about the environment, and inclusivity, and economic fairness, as is everyone at the WEF these days.


    © Time Magazine/Twitter

    Fortunately, just by sheer coincidence, this apocalyptic global plague has provided Marc and his billionaire buddies (who own the majority of the corporate media, and who meet once a year in a remote location guarded by heavily-armed security to discuss our future with major government leaders) with an opportunity to "reset" capitalism and save the planet from ... well, themselves.

    That's not how they see it, naturally. No, the way they see it, they're not the problem. The problem is ... well, the problem is people. Not rich and powerful people like themselves, or the people they need to continue working, consuming, and servicing the interest on their loans, but ... you know, all those other people. Uneducated, un-woke, working-class people. Gun-toting, fanatically religious people. Racist, conspiracy-theorizing people. Deplorable people. "Populist" people. People they don't need anymore.

    These people have been a problem recently. Not only are they a drag on the system, they have been actively interfering with it, voting for Brexit, electing Donald Trump, refusing to abandon their traditional values and outmoded ideas (e.g., national sovereignty, freedom of speech, and mammalian biology) and get on board with global capitalist ideology, and have been otherwise being a real pain in the ass.

    It was one thing when these problem people were mostly black- and brown-skinned people with "extremist" beliefs in faraway countries that most Western consumers couldn't care less about, because GloboCap could just bomb the crap out of them, but they can't really do that here in the West. Hence, the War on Populism that we have been experiencing for the last four years ... and whatever new, dystopian stage of it that awaits us in the post-Trump future.

    2020 has been a preview of it. The lockdowns, the masks, the "social distancing," and other so-called "emergency measures," the Orwellian propaganda, the censorship of dissent, the banning of political protests, the corporate media finally transforming into a full-blown Goebbelsian keyboard instrument, the goon squads raiding people's homes, the cult-like, totalitarian conformity ... it's just a taste of what's to come.

    This was always in the cards, of course. It was just a matter of time until we got here. The folks at GloboCap are no fools. They know they can't remake the world into one big happy neo-feudal marketplace without breaking a few proverbial eggs ... and not just in those "terrorist" countries, but everywhere, throughout the global capitalist empire. And that is exactly what they intend to do. So, they needed a new official narrative to justify all the broken eggs.

    They haven't settled on an official slogan yet. "The New Normal," "The Great Reset," "The Green New Deal" ... they're all just trial balloons at this point. It doesn't really matter what they call it. It amounts to a new type of totalitarianism. As I noted in my previous column, "[i]t isn't national totalitarianism, because we're living in a global capitalist empire, which isn't ruled by nation-states, but rather, by supranational entities and the global capitalist system itself." But it is totalitarianism nonetheless.

    They aren't hiding it. They're spelling it out, not in spittle-flecked Hitlerian speeches, but, clearly, unmistakably, in corporate-speak. Here is Klaus Schwab, Chairman of the WEF:
    "[T]he world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a 'Great Reset' of capitalism."
    I added emphasis for those new to corp-speak. And, for those interested in reading more about Klaus Schwab, Winter Oak has published this disturbing profile, which you can also read on Cory Morningstar's blog (along with a lot of other censored content).

    Sorry ... I was supposed to be writing about the final days of the Trumpian Reich, and I got all sidetracked with this GloboCap business. I hope you'll forgive me for not being able to get all fired up about the election next week. Given everything else that is happening, and everything that has happened over the last four years, I'm just having a little trouble believing that there is any realistic scenario wherein GloboCap lets Trump serve a second term, regardless of who actually wins. So, that kind of takes all the suspense out of it.

    Don't worry, though, I'll get back on the horse when the post-election rioting begins, and Donald Trump finally goes full-Hitler, declares himself Führer, dissolves the Congress, and orders his legions of Russia-loving white supremacists to start rounding up the Jews, as the corporate media, the fake "left" media, the Intelligence Community, the Democratic Party, fascism experts, Hollywood celebrities, and every hysterical liberal in existence have been promising he would since 2016.

    Seriously, if he doesn't go full-Hitler this time, and start rounding up and mass-murdering somebody, or else order the nuking of the United States and then blow his brains out in his underground bunker, some people are going to have some explaining to do.

    Default Re: Why Trump?

    Here's a real good article that makes it clear "Why Trump." - Note that the article is "Q centric" yet the points made as to "Why Q" also explain clearly "Why Trump."

    https://www.libertariannews.org/2020...lobalist-coup/


    I’m Now A Believer: Q Is A Real US Military Intelligence Operation Fighting Off A Globalist Coup
    by Michael Suede • October 17, 2020

    I never really looked too deeply into the Q-Anon movement before. For starters, it didn’t strike me as providing anything all that useful. It just seemed like a bunch of conspiracy theorists claiming crazy **** that had no real impact on anything one way or the other. Well, after recently seeing the media begin coming unglued over Trump refusing to disavow the Q movement, I decided I would poke around and see what I could learn; which is when I managed to find this gem of a video.

    After watching this, I have become convinced that “Q” is an organized military intelligence operation, with direct ties to the Presidency, that is engaged in taking down a globalist coup against our nation that is far more extensive than even I had previously believed – and that’s coming from a guy who already believes the Bush family was entirely behind 9/11 with the total acquiescence of the CIA, NSA, FBI, NTSB and national media.



    Bitchute backup link

    odysee backup link

    Everything makes sense after watching this video. Here’s just a few of the questions I had, prior to watching, that I suddenly came to understand the answers to.

    Why does Trump keep appointing horrible people to powerful posts?
    Why hasn’t he fired Christopher Wray?
    Why did he keep John Bolton around?
    Why the hell would he make Gina Haspel the director of the CIA?
    Why does the Durham investigation seem like a whitewash?
    Why didn’t they make Clinesmith sign a cooperation agreement to help take down others involved in spying against Trump?
    Why are there an unprecedented number of Congressmen and Senators not running for re-election this year, most of whom are Republican?
    Why hasn’t Trump pardoned Flynn?
    Why hasn’t Trump done anything about the State Dept, Justice Dept and FBI blocking records requests from Judicial Watch?

    I will provide my take on the answers to those questions later in the article.

    As for my background, I spent four years in the military and was deployed all over the globe doing everything from counter-narcotics to sanctions enforcement. From my time in the service, it became clear to me that there was some shady **** going on at the highest levels of military command, but it was also clear that most of the high command was composed of good people.

    Due to the way military intelligence organizations are structured, it’s a very hard system of organizations to completely compromise. By military intelligence, I’m referring to the collective system of military run intel agencies like the Office of Naval Intelligence, the NSA, US Cyber Command, etc.. – these do not include civilian run intel organizations, such as the CIA, FBI or foreign agencies like MI6 or the Musad.

    This video has convinced me that rogue elements of US military intelligence community begged Trump to run in 2016 after they became aware of wide ranging systemic corruption and foreign influence in the US political system. These agents (probably admirals and generals) had to have known that Trump was completely clean, with no involvement in the typical kinds of corruption we see at that level of power, while also being the only guy on the planet who had the charisma, the money and the connections to win control of the Presidency. They might have even rigged the election in favor of Trump.

    Think about it. If you were Trump, why would you bother trying to become the President? Trump is always complaining that he had a much easier life before becoming President. Prior to 2016, he had absolutely no interest in acquiring political power or the associated headaches that come with it. His plate was already full managing a massive real estate empire. Then suddenly at the age of 70, when most people like him would be looking forward to a nice relaxing retirement, he decides to run for a political office, which simultaneously entails him shutting down billions in global business deals to prevent the appearance of impropriety?

    Trump’s entire presidential run was coordinated with, and orchestrated by, military intelligence. The obfuscated and conspiratorial Q posts were the only way Trump, and the intel agents on his side, could communicate with the portion of the US public who would be open to learning about the coup without the press making them out to be conspiratorial nut jobs to the remainder of the public who was still largely asleep to the threat at the time.

    The vast majority of the public would have thought Trump was completely nuts if he just came right out at the beginning of his presidential run and said the entire US political system had been taken over by corrupt foreign families that control the global banking and energy markets. Even after all that has transpired since then, it would still be hard for most people to believe.

    So let’s get on to the questions.

    If you look at all of those questions through the lens of the Trump Presidency being, in large part, a massive military led “honeypot” intelligence gathering operation, the same answer to all of them becomes apparent.

    Why keep or put horrible people in positions of power? Because those horrible people may have been flipped to work for our side and they have been tasked with gathering evidence to show who else may have been involved in the coup.

    Why would Barr allow Durham to continue an investigation that’s clearly nothing more than a whitewash? The entire YouTube legal community knows it’s a sham investigation. There’s no chatter about people being pulled in for questioning, there’s no subpoenas flying, there’s no one complaining about having their offices raided, there’s no legal background chatter about this investigation taking place at all. The only person prosecuted so far was a mid level agent, and they didn’t even make him sign a cooperation agreement!

    The reason for this is because the Durham investigation is not designed to actually catch anyone. It’s designed to spook the coup conspirators into communicating about it among themselves, while military intelligence monitors their communications with each other. There will be no Durham report, or if one is actually produced, it will be about as useful as the IG’s report.

    Why are all these Republican congress people not seeking reelection? Because they were told to either resign or they were going to be prosecuted for their involvement in the coup. I have a feeling the democrats involved will not be given such a lenient option. Clearly there are still some very powerful shady Republicans seeking reelection, but I’ll wager they all have a role to play in this grand charade.

    Why hasn’t Trump pardoned Flynn or forced the DoJ, State Dept. and FBI to release all their info? Because the Flynn legal case provides an excellent means of introducing a slow drip of classified intel into a vetted public forum. The revelations about what went on with Flynn are not over yet, and I’m sure Flynn is fully complicit in this continuing charade of a trial. He wants this case to continue. That’s why he just filed motions for recusual that will extend and delay his case even further.

    So how does the end-game play out? Trump is on record saying he’s keeping Gitmo open “for her” – I’m assuming he means Clinton.

    At some point the hammer has to drop. At some point, the mass round up and incarceration of conspirators must take place. As you can imagine, this is going to entail locking up large numbers of elected officials, most of whom are democrats. I also imagine they will be going after the heads of media organizations, banking organizations, the Bush family, the Clintons, and of course, the main heads of the hydra – the House of Saud, the Rothschilds, and the evil Grand Emperor Himself – George Soros.

    The remaining democrats who are still under the spell of the mainstream media are going to flip their lids. Martial law may have to be declared to keep them under control. That said, it may not come to that. As we can see from Biden’s rallies, he has virtually no support from anyone. The guy can’t even get a couple dozen people to turn up. The MSM polls are all fake. There’s very few people who would actively resist a mass round up these criminals, especially when the military would move quickly to suppress them if they did.

    They can’t try these people in DC. There’s so many commies in DC they would never be able to ensure justice is done. I’m figuring most of these people will be tried under the crime of high treason, so we will probably see them hauled in front of military tribunals. The Q must have a plan to deal with this already in place.

    When will this go down? Probably not until after the election. This will help prevent the appearance of Trump engaging in a political coup for his own aggrandizement. We shall see.
    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    Donald Trump deserves a second term

    Opinion by Scott Jennings Updated 8:53 PM EDT, Fri October 30, 2020

    (CNN)The case for President Donald Trump is simple: He made the economy work for so many Americans, kept us out of new and costly wars and even brokered peace deals in the Middle East.

    He believes our taxes should be lower, not higher -- and signed into law sweeping tax relief for businesses and the vast majority of federal income tax filers. He thinks government shouldn't overregulate, rolling back numerous Obama-era overreaches, while working with his Republican allies in Congress.

    And despite his relative dovishness, he has invested in our military and in the men and women who wear the uniform. As a result, our enemies know we are more than capable of finishing them. Just ask the former leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or former Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

    Beyond that, Trump stands up against the worst impulses of the American left and the radicals who seek to banish from the public square those who dare to think differently.  Heck, even the Girl Scouts deleted a tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barrett on her elevation to the Supreme Court because of pressure from the liberal Twitter mob. Is that the kind of American we want, where unhinged progressives can shut down even a simple tweet of congrats to an accomplished female judge?

    Whatever problems I have with him -- and there are more than a few -- Trump's willingness to stand up to this kind of mob impresses the hell out of me. Standing by Justice Brett Kavanaugh during a tough confirmation fight, for instance, was a particularly proud moment.

    Trump is not a perfect person. His personal history, and the way he speaks to and about people can be atrocious. But Trump did become the first sitting president to attend the March for Life Rally this year, where he voiced his unwavering support for "unborn children," who he said "never had a stronger defender in the White House." Whether his views on abortion are pure or transactional, I care not. He stands up for the unborn who can't stand up for themselves -- and has appointed judges, like Barrett, who will hopefully do the same.

    Elections are choices. Pro-life or pro-choice. Higher taxes or lower taxes. Support free speech or coddle censorship. No politician ever satisfies me fully, but Trump comes far closer than Joe Biden ever could.

    There's room for Trump to improve, but in no way does Biden represent a step in a policy direction that I can support as a conservative
    . He fails the test on virtually every issue I care about, and I expect the United States would move radically left on his watch, especially on abortion.

    And for all of the President's missteps, including his rhetorical failures in dealing with coronavirus, this vote is about the next four years. We will likely have a vaccine soon (and in large part thanks to Trump's leadership on Operation Warp Speed), and we will defeat this virus no matter who wins.

    So, who can lead us through that day and beyond, restoring the American economy and stopping the radicals from tearing up the American political institutions they find inconvenient?

    Donald J. Trump.
