Another Memorial Day

Yesterday I joined the officially-estimated 50,000 people attending the Memorial Day "Celebration at the Station" in Kansas City.

The weather was perfect, the music wonderful, and the post-celebration fireworks spectacular. The crowd's mood was respectfully celebratory save for a somber moment when photos of several young area men killed in action since 2001 were displayed on two large HiDef screens.

I watched with growing fury as the pageant's official spokesman made the standard obligatory references to the "heroic sacrifices of these brave men who died defending our freedom". That these men were brave goes without saying and I'm certain that at the beginning of their service they truly believed they were defending our freedom. At one time I believed it too. The bitter truth is that every American soldier killed in action since 2001 died as a direct result of Washington's Official Lies and everyone in Official Washington and its enabling national media establishment knows it.

This morning, Senator John McCain called Russia a "bigger threat to global security" than ISIS and called Russia' s President Vladimir Putin a "thug and a murderer", echoing the meme that demonstrates just how thoroughly the Washington Establishment has absorbed and is now applying lessons learned from the tyrannical regimes with dreams of Empire that preceded it.
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.  – Josef Stalin, Dictator of the Soviet Union
“Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goring, Nazi Gestapo Founder
Since September 11, 2001, Washington has bombed Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, and Pakistan. It has overthrown the democratically elected President of the Ukraine in 2014 and its agents initiated the completely illegal effort to overthrow Syria's President Assad. Assad's was the only government in the region protecting Christians and other religious minorities from Sunni fanatics.

"Republican" Senator John McCain and "Democrat" Hillary Clinton's Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland orchestratred and directed the Ukrainian coup d'etat and McCain and Clinton were heavily involved in standing up, arming, and supporting the so-called "Syrian Free Army", a rag-tag gang of Sunni thugs and former al Qaeda members responsible for the violence occuring in Syria today. In that time, be it noted, Russia has attacked and invaded no one, Washington's self-serving and false characterizations of events in Crimea not withstanding.

Senator John McCain is the poster boy for the nation and freedom destroying cancer of Washington-sponsored aggression. He is the very embodiment of evil with the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children on his hands, including the blood of thousands of American soldiers. For Criminal McCain to call anyone else "a thug and a murderer" is a crime against truth and reason, an odious projection of his own faults. He and his fellow war criminals are busily about, preparing for their next wars. For them, it is a "target rich" environment. The occupation of Russia is the ultimate goal.

Time for Grandpa Crawford's Lesson

The duly elected President of the United States and the Constitutional structure of our government are under attack by traitorous criminals in both wings of the Washington Party, the national news media, and members of the judiciary. We are in the midst of nothing less than an attempted coup d'etat, a blatant and arrogantly overt effort to subvert the Constitution and impose the agenda of collectivist thugs who intend to destroy the country and subjugate its population.

This is an organized orchestrated assault by an army of bullying thugs, in and out of government. The assailants include political bullies like Chuck Schumer and John McCain, judicial tyrants like those of the 9th Circuit, direct action mobs like Obama's OFA and Black Lives Matter street thugs, and virtually every national news and entertainment media outlet. The attackers are immoral criminals and deserve to be treated as such. Instead, they are allowed to continue, regardless of the law and public outrage. How can this be?

It's very simple. There is no downside for the aggressors. They experience neither pain nor penalty for their behavior. We must change this result!

Many years ago as an enlisted man I took a solemn oath. Millions more have done so since. That oath is as follows:
(a) Enlistment Oath.— Each person enlisting in an armed force shall take the following oath:
"I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
That oath has no expiration date and it is now time to fulfill it. We must put all those participating in the effort to overthrow the President on notice that they pose an existential threat to peace and freedom and, if they persist, they should not expect to die a natural death.

Many Americans have been so thoroughly conditioned that the very thought of self-defense is alien, repugnant, and perhaps impossible. How could it be otherwise? By now generations have been taught that to physically resist an attack by a school yard bully is to earn a suspension. “No tolerance” policies make no distinction between aggressor and victim. Self-defense requires the use of force and that is not to be allowed. Toy guns—even pictures of guns—are forbidden by imbecilic administrators and school boards across the country. “Dodge ball” is banned because it encourages aggressive behavior.

I never knew how much formal education he had, but my Grandpa, Francis Marion Crawford, was one of the smartest men I have ever known. He was named after "The Swamp Fox", the American Revolutionary War General who led a band of irregular fighters against Cornwallis in the swamps of South Carolina and is generally identified as the Father of Guerilla Warfare. Grandpa knew things that most people had long since forgotten, important things, like how to shoot, how to hunt, what plants one could safely eat in the woods, and how one could catch a fish using string and a safety pin if all else failed.

He was a gentle man and I never once heard him raise his voice in anger. The closest I can recall occurred when I was about five. Grandpa and Grandma lived on a farm on the edge of the woods. He was teaching me how to shoot his Remington .22 bolt action rifle, targeting tin cans in the driveway. Grandma heard the shooting and stepped out on the porch. "Do you think his mother would approve of this?" she asked with concern in her voice. Grandpa never looked up or changed his tone. He just said quietly--and not at all  unkindly, "Go back in the house, Woman. This is important." Today's Gods of Political Correctness would not have been pleased but Grandma did so without objection.

I was by far the smallest child in my kindergarten class, quite near sighted and equipped with thick wire-rimmed glasses without which I was as blind as a bat. Think "Ralphie" of the Christmas Story. To top it off, it was my great misfortune to be named "Francis", (a "girl's name" or so my tormenters would falsely taunt) at the very moment the movie "Francis the Talking Mule" became popular. By the time first grade rolled around, I was a favorite target of school yard bullies, often reporting home with a bloody nose and broken glasses.

Then one sunny September Saturday morning after a particularly rough week, Grandpa Crawford called me aside to teach me what would prove to be one of the most important lessons of my life. "Francis," he said quietly, "there is a very important difference between the sport of boxing and a fight. In the sport of boxing, there are rules that must be followed. A fight is not a sport and there are no rules."

"What do you mean, Grandpa?" I was genuinely puzzled.

He smiled. "The next time a bully intends to do you harm and you KNOW he's going to hit you, I want you to double up your fist and hit him on the end of his nose just as hard as you can."

"You want me to START a fight?" I was incredulous. My Mom (Grandpa's daughter) had taught me never to start a fight and she had been quite firm about it.

"No, Francis," he said with a smile, "if you do this right, there won't be a fight."

As it happened, Butchie Halstead, the biggest bully in Arlington, accosted me on my way back to
class at recess on the very next Monday. For no reason at all, he offered to "beat the crap out of me". Butchie was at least a head taller than me and had already acquired a reputation of being "meaner than hell." I was terrified, but somehow I summoned my courage and, as Butchie approached with a practiced expression of sneering confidence on his face, I swung an overhand right that had every one of my 40 plus pounds behind it. The punch landed squarely on the end of his nose with a satisfying crunch and blood flew everywhere. Butchie staggered and ran off bleeding wearing an expression of total shock. He never bothered me again.

The next time I saw Grandpa, after making sure my mom wasn't within ear shot, I told him what had happened. "I'm not surprised," he said. "Most bullies are cowards. They are bullies because there is no downside for them. No one will stand up to them so they continue to get away with it. When they run into someone who understands that the first punch usually wins the fight, they'll fold like a cheap suit. Never forget that."

I never have.

The Establishment's Ultimate Non-Surprise!

Seoul, The Day After
The content of this post was written and first appeared here more than two years ago on July 3, 2014. Given the current trajectory of events, it seems timely to run it again.
----------------------------------------------------
At 11:05 New York time on the morning of Monday, July 7, 2014, the Liberian-flagged freighter Alimar and its mostly Bosnian 14-man crew steamed steadily northward in choppy seas forty miles off the coast of New York. Three hundred miles above the stratosphere, the Kwangmyongsong 3 satellite approached what would be its final destination over Indianapolis. It tumbled in a sun-synchronis polar orbit as it had since its launch eighteen months earlier. At the same time, in a sweltering shack seven thousand miles away, North Korean Senior Colonel Dae-Ho Yun chain smoked and paced nervously. His attention was divided between the wall clock's minute hand and the field phone atop his Artillery Corps command headquarters desk. 
The Kwangmyongsong 3 weighed nearly 200 pounds and was roughly the size of an apartment-sized washing machine. When its fission payload detonated at 10:11 a.m. local time in broad daylight more than 300 miles above Indianapolis the flash that accompanied the resulting explosion was barely noticeable from the ground. The event certainly did not escape the attention of Captain Kevin Reynolds, Duty Officer for the North American Aerospace Defense Command at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. He reached quickly for the red telephone--but it was already much too late.  
Although U.S. Defense Department Officials claimed that the low yield of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons' tests was evidence of failure, they were either spectacularly wrong or deliberately deceptive. North Korea was intent on developing a Hegemon-killing "Super EMP" weapon, not a mere atomic bomb. Instead of wasting the weapon's power in the generation of explosive blast, heat, and light, energy was diverted to produce a gamma ray pulse more powerful than would have been produced by a much larger thermonuclear fusion device in the multi-megaton range. Upon detonation, every electronic device between the Front Range of the Rockies and the Atlantic not shielded by a Faraday Cage was rendered instantly and permanently inoperable.
At eleven minutes after midnight local time, forty miles north of Seoul, a grim-faced Senior Colonel Dae-Ho Yun strode to his desk, extracted a silenced Makarov pistol from the center drawer, and efficiently shot dead the two non-commissioned headquarters clerks working at their desks. He picked up the field phone, barked out a terse two-word command, and then sprinted from the headquarters building toward shelter. Two minutes later, hundreds of NKPA M-1978 KOKSAN 170 millimeter self-propelled guns and MRL240 M-1985 rocket launchers launched a fire storm of high explosive death at the rate of 350 shells per minute on the 24 million unfortunate people of Seoul and the more than 5,000 American 2nd Infantry Division troops garrisoned just south of the DMZ at Camp Casey. Most of the Americans were sound asleep when they died. 
At 11:11 a.m. New York Time an Iskander missile was launched from the highly modified deck of the Alimar. Fifteen seconds later the Alimar and her unsuspecting crew ceased to exist, vaporized in a blinding flash so powerful that it registered briefly on NORAD satellite instruments. It took slightly less than thirty-one seconds for the Iskander to reach Manhattan at Mach 7. The 50-kiloton warhead detonated in the middle of the trading day at an altitude of 300 feet and killed every living person within one mile in all directions. Virtually all structures within a circle two and one-half miles wide were destroyed. Everyone within two miles of ground zero who survived the air blast suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns.
Much of the financial, communications, employment, manufacturing and agricultural capacity of the United States was completely destroyed and it effectively ceased to exist as a functioning nation-state--all in the span of less than two minutes.
The oligarchs who run the world are frightened. People are awakening, the world's economies are crumbling, and the old lies don't seem to be working any more. As anyone who's hunted big game or spent much time in the woods will tell you, a wounded predator is a dangerous predator. Whether it is the scenario described above or an alternate to played out in the Ukraine or the Middle East, the accelerated flow of events and the increasingly desperate tone of establishment figure heads combine to suggest that a significant trigger is about to be tripped. The oligarchs need to divert public anger.

Buckle up.

A Most Deadly Betrayal

Whatever You Do, Do NOT Look at the Flash!
Occam's Razor should be employed when it comes to the Trump attack on Syria: the simplest explanation is usually best.

This is a very difficult post for me to write. It appears that I was wrong. As regular visitors to this site know, I have been among Donald Trump's strongest supporters from the beginning of his campaign. Although I certainly hope that the optimism many of his supporters continue to express proves to be justified, the concern that has developed among many of us is prompted by much more than the cruise missile attack on Syria. There is a pattern of disturbing behavior that goes far beyond that.
  1. The President has filled his Cabinet and inner circle with Goldman Sach's alumni and neoconservative war hawks who now appear to be in complete control of U.S. defense and foreign policy.
  2. He was far too quick to accept a "deal" to replace ObamaCare with an even worse federally-controlled scheme put forward by Republican denizens of the "Swamp" he promised to drain..
  3. He has increased U.S. military support of Saudi aggression in Yemen, authorizing an escalating number of air strikes against the Houthis.
  4. He has maintained the totally unjustified "sanctions" against Russia, sanctions which comprise an act of economic warfare.
  5. He has failed to inform the American people of U.S. involvement in the February 2014 overthrow of the elected government of the Ukraine, led by none other than the despicable John McCain and the harpy, Victoria Nuland, Hillary Clinton's Under Secretary of State. This failure implicitly gives credence to the false "Russian aggression" meme which is being drummed into the American public consciousness 24/7 by the bi-partisan establishment war party. 
  6. With respect to Syria, he has failed to inform the American people that under the Obama administration, the U.S. stood up, equipped, trained, and directed the so-called "Syrian Free Army" and is responsible for the years of war there. Although Assad is certainly an autocrat (on about the same level as our ally, the "King" of Jordan) when compared to the hideous regime in Saudi Arabia (also our "ally"), Assad is a virtual Captain Kangaroo.
  7. Also with respect to Syria, Trump's UN ambassador, Nikki Haley, has now twice stated that removal of Assad is now a U.S. policy objective. This is exactly the kind of "regime change" operation that candidate Trump promised never to do!
Whatever rationalizations are presented to defend the President's actions, it is simply undeniable that the U.S. has no legitimate national interests in Syria. Neither the U.S. government or the President, acting alone, has the slightest constitutional or moral authority to attack another sovereign nation that has not attacked us. To do so is, by definition, a violation of international law and the Constitution.

One wonders if Trump will now drop the other shoe on the Korean peninsula. As one who spent two tours of duty there many years ago, I devoutly hope that he does not. Unfortunately, this morning’s media reports are not reassuring. This from The Guardian.
As the US navy deployed a strike group towards the western Pacific Ocean, to provide a presence near the Korean peninsula, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said China agrees with the Trump administration that “action has to be taken” regarding North Korea.
Given the direction things are heading, it seems likely that the next "news" come out of Washington will be approximately one of the following:
  • Announcement of a "surgical strike" on the residence of the evil North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un.
  • An expression of outrage over an alleged air strike by unidentified planes on the U.S.S. Ross and the U.S. Porter in the eastern Mediterranean.
  • An expression of outrage over an alleged shoot-down of a U.S. military aircraft operating over Syria by Russian or Syrian ground-based, sea-based, or air-based forces.
The people of the United States and of the world are in a very bad place. Let us pray.

Facts Everyone Should Know About Hospital Insurance and Access to Primary Medical Care

Here are a few facts that should be understood and considered by all involved in the discussion about replacing the Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare").
Our “health care” system is insurance-centered, not patient-centered.  “Obamacare” was designed to sell hospital insurance. So is its official Republican-sponsored replacement.
“Health care” is a made-up term coined in the 1940s after employers begin to offer hospital insurance as a benefit to get around war time wage and price controls. Until then, most Americans did not have hospital insurance.
The term “health care” conflates insurance costs with medical and hospital service costs, effectively hiding the fact that the insurance-based “Third Party Payment System” (Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross and Commercial Insurers) is directly responsible for at least 40% of today’s “health care” costs. Hospital insurance does not provide medical care.
The insurance-based “Third Party Payment System” (Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross and Commercial Insurers) has been distorting the market for more than half a century and is directly responsible for at least 40% of today’s “health care” costs. If the Third Party Payment System did not exist, the real cost of medical and hospital care would plummet.
Between 1960 and 2014, the portion of U.S. “healthcare” expenses paid:
    • By consumers decreased from 48% to 11%.
    • By government increased from 24% to 49%.
    • By private insurance increased from 21% to 33%.
Every federal intervention in the payment system for the last 50 years has had the effect of hiding the cost of service from the people receiving that service. When potential consumers of a highly desirable service are shielded from its cost, demand for that service will increase exponentially as this graph demonstrates conclusively. 
Note: The clueless official caption proves that CMMS should not be in charge of anything.
 The average 30-year old will pay $9,156.38 out-of-pocket in premiums and deductibles per year before the insurance-based system pays one penny.
In any given year, only 1 in 4 Americans will incur medical expenses greater than what they pay for hospital insurance. For those under 50, the odds against incurring that much in medical expenses are even greater.
In a free market, when the costs of a service outweigh its benefit, consumers of that service will use other options.
The Third Party Payer System has priced itself out of the primary care market. For most people primary care insurance is a bad bet. Most would be better off to save the premium and pay out of pocket. However, everyone should be encouraged to voluntarily maintain catastrophic coverage to protect against the cost of a major illness or injury.

President Trump vs. the Hydra: The Fight for OUR Lives!

In Greek mythology, the Hydra was a gigantic water-snake-like monster with nine heads, one of which was immortal. As soon as one head was cut off, two more heads would emerge from the fresh wound. That description fits the President's truly monstrous enemies perfectly. Unless the people rise up and fight to defend him, we are all doomed.

As this is written, well-organized efforts are underway to thwart the will of the American people and destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump. These competing efforts, launched by the forces of two criminal enterprises which hate each other, are united in their fear of Trump and the people who elected him. After Trump is gone from the scene, what little is left of American freedom will be gone and they will fight each other over control of the Welfare State's rotting corpse.

The Socialist (mostly "Democrat") Hydra Head

Obama may be out of office, but from behind the scenes he and his posse are directly and criminally involved in the fight to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

A little over four years ago, in the week before his second inauguration, President Obama's "Organizing for America" campaign machine (OFA) announced that it had been restructured as a community organizing group. Only a few political junkies correctly understood that announcement to be a declaration of war. If that sounds a bit "over the top", please download and read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and David Horowitz’s short but excellent summary, “Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution”.

Obama has taught and practiced Alinsky’s direct action methods his entire political life, most famously while working as a community organizer in Chicago. Alinsky taught that politics is war, that the goal is power, and that the first rule for community organizers working in pursuit of that goal must be, “There are no rules!” He believed that American society is divided into three permanent groups, “Haves”, “Have Nots”, and “Have a Little, Want Mores.” Obama is moving at great speed to seize power using Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" as his playbook. The “Have a Little, Want Mores” (members of the American Middle Class) are his first target. By destroying the economy, he intends to convert the Middle Class into “Have Nots”, thereby making them available for mobilization against the “Haves”.

What Obama is doing is deliberately revolutionary in every sense of the word and completely outside the experience of his political opposition. He has moved the locus of action from the air waves and the ballot box to the street. The use of direct action to coerce members of Congress and state government officials is a dangerous move into uncharted territory, fraught with risk for the current political process, the American governing structure, and civil peace. Obama will use direct action to push through every goal, including gun control, amnesty for illegals, increased taxation, unlimited deficit spending and greater federal power. Unfortunately for the rest of the country, the feeble effort to oppose Obama's rapid advance by the few remaining members of Republican establishment that still believe in America is the political equivalent of bringing a knife to a gun fight.

OFA is coordinating Obama's posse of union thugs, assorted radicals, overt Communists, sympathetic national and local “news" organizations, and other useful idiots in direct action campaigns to destroy President Trump and the traditional American political process. From the Vietnam era to the present, Alinsky-trained activists have consistently used direct action to seize property, block polling places, occupy offices, lie, bribe, blackmail, make terroristic threats, employ character assassination and engage in physical violence ranging from beatings, arson, and bombings all the way up to murder (see the Weather Underground). These direct action tactics come straight out of Alinsky's "anything goes" handbook and coordinating the use of direct action tactics is what "community organizers" do! It should be remembered that Obama's political career was launched from the Chicago apartment of Weather Underground founder Bill Ayers who has admitted participating in the bombings of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.

The Neo-Conservative (mostly "Republican") Hydra Head

As evil as the Socialists are (and they are utterly evil),the Neo-conservatives are even worse because they have so many other-wise good and patriotic people so badly fooled. They masquerade as "Conservatives" when, in fact, they despise America's traditional values and are determined to impose their will on the rest of the world, even at the risk of war. They are quite willing to fight to the last drop of somebody else's blood. They follow the advice of Stalin's Communists and Hitler's Nazi's perfectly in this regard.
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.  – Josef Stalin, Dictator of the Soviet Union
“Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goring, Nazi Gestapo Founder
They intend to start a major war and then use the natural patriotism of the American people to gain absolute control of the national government. The blood of millions is already on their hands.

The very worst of these traitors are Senators John McCain and Linday Graham, both of whom were instrumental in generating the current wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen and the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of the Ukraine.Just now, these jackals are in full-throated war mode, insanely trying to crank up war-fever hatred against Russia for non-existent "aggression" and completely false claims of Russian interference in the recent Presidential elections.

For them, no lie is too great. No slander too outrageous.

It is they and their syncophants in the so-called "intelligence community", the State Department, and the establishment media who pose the greatest threats to peace and freedom, not Russia. It is they and not the Democrats who offer the greatest danger to the President and the American people. They will stop at nothing to retain Establishment Control, not even nuclear war.

They must be stopped.

An Open Letter RegardingTrump and Putin

This Open Letter is addressed to certain Senators and Members of Congress including Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Marco Rubio, and Congresswoman Liz Cheney in the wake of comments they made over the weekend.

Dear Senators and Members of Congress:
Trumped Again!

Thank God for President Trump’s honesty.

In your coordinated weekend expressions of outrage over the President’s comments regarding Putin
and Russia, you are correct about one thing: there is no “moral equivalence” between the conduct of Russia under Vladimir Putin and the behavior of the United States during the quarter of a century that has elapsed since the Soviet Union collapsed. Putin wins that contest every time and it is not even close.

Since then, the United States has violently overthrown governments and invaded, bombed, and occupied territories in more than a dozen countries stretching from the Balkans, across North Africa, throughout the Middle East and up into the Ukraine. During the same period, Russia has attacked no other nation despite a blizzard of propaganda to the contrary emanating from the bi-partisan U.S. War Party and its allies in Establishment media organs.

During the last 25 years, the United States has caused the deaths of more than a million people in sovereign nations that have not attacked us including hundreds of thousands of non-combatant men, women and children. This trail of bloody carnage runs through the former Yugoslavia, Algeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, the Ukraine, Yemen, Somalia, and Syria (among others) and continues to this day. In contrast, Russia has conducted itself with admirable restraint despite the most recent United States’ aggression in which the United States organized, funded, and directed the violent overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically-elected government and inserted a puppet regime in its place in February of 2014. Senator John McCain and Hillary Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, were intimately and directly involved in that putsch.

Just to be clear, I am no peacenik. I believe defense of the nation is the Federal Government's primary responsibility. I am a veteran of five years active duty service with the 1st Cavalry Division, the 7th Infantry Division, and the XVIII Airborne Corps. I am a small businessman and the father of five grown children, two of whom were career military men. I despise Marxism, Socialism, and collectivism of all sorts and for most of my life have considered myself to be a conservative Republican. That self-identification ended when I finally realized that the Republican Party and the Washington Defense and Diplomatic establishment had been subverted by an insane empire-building neoconservative cult during the Clinton administration.

The hypocrisy that underlies your constant efforts to demonize Russia and Iran is disgusting and transparently obvious. For murderous thugs like you who have been constant cheer leaders to Washington’s bloody banditry and are implicit in it to presume to lecture the President of any other country about his conduct is enough to make one vomit. I only hope the American people awaken quickly enough bring you and your fellow war criminals to justice before you ignite the Great War you are working so hard to foment.

Sincerely,


Frank J. Brady

CC: President Donald Trump

The Vortex: Imminent Revolution, War, and Mass Murder!

America is undergoing a coup attempt, a violent revolution against the people's expressed will under their Constitution. It is happening now.

The treasonous criminals behind this attack are desperate to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. They include George Soros and his string of subversive organizations; the remnants of Hillary Clinton's campaign cadre; outgoing President Barack Obama and his political retinue; rogue members of the administration-controlled "intelligence community"; the Democrat Socialists of America (including the 69 Democrat members of Congress comprising the Congressional Progressive Caucus); the leadership of many national Labor Unions; virtually the entire establishment "news" and entertainment establishment; Leftist university and college faculties across the United States; and, perhaps most dangerous of all, a subversive Fifth Column of treacherous neo-conservative war mongers who pretend to be "conservatives" but are not. These include Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Marco Rubio and others who are working as hard as they can to instigate yet another war of aggression, this one with Iran and Russia. If you are a loyal Republican who objects to my description of neo-conservatives as a subversive Fifth Column you're most likely a good person who just hasn't been paying attention to their machinations for the last thirty years.

Coup leaders are coordinating lies, disinformation and false news disseminated through their controlled national news and media outlets to whip up support for its efforts.
  • Lie Number One: Donald Trump's election is invalid because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote nationally.
The fact of the matter is that millions of dead people and illegal immigrants were allowed to vote in the Presidential election of 2016. However, even if the official figures are accepted as valid, outside of California Hillary Clinton LOST the popular vote nationally.
Here are the official final popular vote totals for the nation in the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016:

Hillary ClintonDonald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals   65,844,610  62,979,636

As it happens, last month, on the heels of Donald Trump's election, a group of disgruntled anti-Trump Californians launched a petition drive for the purpose of achieving California's secession from the United States. It is interesting to consider what the result of last November's popular vote would have been had that state already left the union.

Hillary ClintonDonald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals (without California)   58,482,120  59,063,427

Without California, Donald Trump wins a national popular vote majority of 581,307 votes. In fact, except for the votes in just 12 of 58 California counties (Los Angeles, Alameda, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Sacramento, Orange, Sonoma, Marin, Santa Cruz, Ventura, and Solano) Trump would have carried California as well.

It reduces to this. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in and therefore deserves to be President of California. The rest of the country? Not so much.
  • Lie Number Two: Vladimir Putin is an aggressive dictator who invaded the Ukraine.
In fact, Putin is not a dictator (see this link) and Russia has not attacked any other nation since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same cannot be said about the United States (see this link).

Putin was re-elected by a popular vote of the Russian people and enjoys tremendous popularity among the Russian people. Russia did NOT "invade the Ukraine". It was the United States, led by a bi-partisan clique of neocons (including John McCain and Hillary Clinton's deputy, Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland) who overthrew the democratically elected government of the Ukraine and installed a puppet regime with the assistance of neo-Nazis. If you are interested in more detail, go to this link about Russia and to this link.

This week contains the last few days before Trump's inauguration and is a period of maximum danger.  The US has rushed troops and ammunition in large quantities to  the Russian border. The U.S. and Israel last Friday conducted an air raid on a Syrian air base housing Russian troops in Damascus in a failed attempt to provoke a Russian response. And, in a chilling development, Obama just fired the Commanding General of the DC National Guard effective with Trump's inauguration.

With the pieces all in place, it is very likely the plotters will manufacture an incident with Iran in the Persian Gulf  as they did in the staged Gulf of Tonkin incident which was used to launch the Vietnam War. Washington's propaganda machine has been setting the stage for this option for the last several months. Alternatively, they may stage a mass casualty False Flag attack on the United States as it planned to do with Operations North Woods in the early 1960s to justify war with Cuba.

Nothing is beneath these criminals. Pray that they fail or nuclear war and the death of millions will be the result.

"Carlos Danger" Did It!

If you are among the millions of Americans trying to understand how Hillary's e-mail crimes morphed into a Russian hack of the U.S. Presidential election, please read on.

On Friday afternoon, "the intelligence community" released it's report on alleged Russian efforts to hack last November's Presidential election. The report said in part:
“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump”.
The report was released just one day after top intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper (already an admitted perjurer) and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee on the issue. Clapper told the Senators that the intelligence community has grown more "resolute" in its assessment that Russian intelligence was involved in the hacks aimed at the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The "intelligence community" released no evidence to support this charge and refused to identify even one example of Russian interference. The clear intent was to demonize Russia and, by extension, to damage Donald Trump.

If one looks at this in the right frame of mind, it is almost too funny for words. There is absolutely no evidence in the report or in the testimony to remotely suggest that the Russian government (or private Russian citizens, for that matter) released Hillary Clinton's e-mail to Wikileaks and that is what this kerfuffle is all about. For his part, Wikileaks' Julian Assange has repeatedly denied that Hillary's embarrassing e-mails were provided by Russians.

A far more likely source is former Congressman and serial sexter Anthony Weiner (aka "Carlos Danger"), the estranged husband of Hillary Clinton's closest aide, Huma Abedin. Weiner possesses all the attributes of a prime suspect in this caper. He had:
  • Complete access to Hillary's e-mails;
  • Motive (revenge); 
  • And plenty of Opportunity. 
The "intelligence community" is well aware of Weiner's potential involvement because the FBI found copies of virtually all of Hillary's e-mails on a laptop computer that Weiner and Abedin shared. By the way, has anyone seen either Weiner or Abedin lately?

The bi-partisan political establishment has decided to go "all in" on this fairy tale because both Washington parties badly need an external enemy to divert public attention from their continued criminality and the leaders of both parties are united in their hatred and fear of Donald Trump. For their part, the so-called "intelligence community" (the CIA, FBI and the Office of the Director on National Intelligence) knows which side its bread is buttered on and the vote on next year's funding is just around the corner.

It really is outrageous. For official Washington to wax apocalyptic over a blatantly false claim of Russian interference in our political system is enough to give arrogant hypocrisy a bad name. The U.S. has for decades engaged in serial "regime change" operations around the world, instigating violent uprisings and civil wars costing thousands of human lives. That's "interference" on steroids.

On a related topic, we are reminded incessantly by Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and their obedient servants in the "Main Stream Media" that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.

If we assume that big city Democrat politicians have changed their ways, that no dead people cast ballots, and that illegal immigrants were turned away from the polls, she sure did. Here are the official final popular vote totals for the nation in the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016:

Hillary Clinton Donald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals    65,844,610   62,979,636

As you can see, Hillary Clinton did defeat Donald Trump in the national popular vote totals by 2,864,974 votes. The problem is that Hillary's entire popular vote margin exists nationally because of the size of her popular vote in just one state: California.

As it happens, last month, on the heels of Donald Trump's election, a group of disgruntled anti-Trump Californians launched a petition drive for the purpose of achieving California's secession from the United States. It is interesting to consider what the result of last November's popular vote would have been had that state already left the union.

Hillary Clinton Donald Trump
U.S. Popular Vote Totals (without California)    58,482,120   59,063,427

So without California, Donald Trump wins a national popular vote majority of 581,307 votes. In fact, except for the votes in just 12 of 58 California counties (Los Angeles, Alameda, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Sacramento, Orange, Sonoma, Marin, Santa Cruz, Ventura, and Solano) Trump would have carried California as well.

It reduces to this. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in and therefore deserves to be President of California. The rest of the country? Not so much.
