"THIS is NOT a Midterm, It's a Re-Elect" (Steve Bannon)

.
.
Everything is at stake for both Globalists and Nationalists alike, in these 2018 Midterms. (https://youtu.be/q8BGvG3pPfo)

Steve Bannon is right, "This is NOT a Midterm, it's a Re-Elect!"

It's hard to put ANY faith at all in what you hear/read from the Corporate Globalist media. Their polls, like their "news reports" are all too often fictionalized.

That's why Conservatives, Libertarians and Nationalists of all stripes MUST ignore the noise and get out and vote, November 6th...AND, if possible, to DONATE.

Today, a little over fifty days from Election Day, the Senate looks more likely, than not to remain in GOP hands, with only 8 seats in contention, with FL, AZ, ND, IN UT & MO looking good for the GOP, and NJ & TX, surprisingly both tossups.

West Virginia and Montana are also very tight races.

In the House, there are allegedly 39 seats that are up for grabs. Most of those in traditionally Red areas.

Will the Democrats be able to pull enough of those out to win back the House?

The GOP absolutely needs the Senate, but as Steve Bannon says, "Losing the House would effectively ground the Trump Presidency to a halt."

What can you do if you live in a reliably Red, or Blue district?

First, you can DONATE.

Money wins elections, because money sways votes.

You can also volunteer. Look around for nearby contests that might be close and, if you have some time, volunteer.

Florida is leaning Red, and NJ is very close, with Billionaire, former Marine, Bob Hugin putting heavy pressure on the vulnerable Bob Menendez. In Missouri, Claire McCaskill has never been more vulnerable and now, supposedly trails Josh Hawley in the polls.

We SHOULD NOT TRUST these media polls.

2016 was a shocking upset that put a political outsider in the White House. That’s a BIG problem for our multinational conglomerates, international banks and their bought & paid for political-media class. It is NOT A PROBLEM for average citizens, either Democrat, nor Republican.

Bannon has been freed to sell Nationalism in Europe and around the world and he's been doing that very effectively.

There are NO "globalist interests," for any average working people. A Nationalist outcome WILL NOT harm you, Left, or Right.

It would almost certainly bolster the stock markets, strengthen the USD and lead to more balanced trade deals that will help both European and American workers.

In short, the Globalist agenda is NOT for you.

You have NOTHING to lose if the EU implodes, the Euro crashes and America's Globalist political-media class is effectively replaced.

The same can't be said if the Anglo-American Globalist agenda is revived.

2016 was a shock, but 2018 is THE fight. Winning means keeping BOTH Houses of Congress.

Winning means real...longterm change.

Bono's Globalist Bigotry...

.
.
My new favorite Vlogger, Henrik Palmgren, very accurately lays out Bono's "circus monkey" act on the part of the Multinational Corporate Globalists. (https://youtu.be/TjIORAjYWng)

In Bono's latest incarnation, "MacPhisto," Bono insinuates that the Swedes who voted for the Swedish Democrats, a Nationalist Party that won nearly 20% of the seats in Sweden's Parliament, are "Nazis."

His inane, racist rant begins, "Tall, blonde, blue eyed....boring."

Is that the worst the diminutive (5'4") Bono and his Corporate masters can come up with against the Swedes?

This is NOT merely an attack on the Swedish people, nor even the Northern Europeans. It is an attack on all the many disparate cultures, heritages and ethnicities of all mankind. It is a Corporate plan to remake mankind and the world over in an image they prefer.

Henrik Palmgren is a true anti-Globalist hero.

Scarcity and Poverty...

.
.
Scarcity (finite resources, coupled with unlimited human demand) is a basic reality of our physical existence.

Many have noted that poverty ISN'T due as much to scarcity, as it is to non-productivity, and that is largely correct.

The poor, are poor, for the most part, because they make poor decisions. In fact, ironically enough, the SAME traits that violent people are prone to (recklessness, irresponsibility, the inability to plan ahead, poor impulse control) are the same traits that inevitably lead to poverty.

Scarcity is a related, but somewhat different issue (https://www.economicshelp.org/blog/586/markets/scarcity-in-economics/)

IF someone...ANYONE could show that, "the rich glom too much wealth, creating more poor people by their greed," they'd; (1) expose a fatal flaw in the market system and (2) show that, "Not only can Socialism's/Marxism's Central Planning work, it must work, as it's our only hope."

Of course, that is NOT the case.

While there IS a finite amount of currency in circulation at any one time, there is no such shortage of wealth.

Real wealth is NOT currency, although it's measured in dollars, etc., it's ideas.

Bill Gates doesn't have $90 BILLION in the bank, nor does Jeff Bezos have $150 BILLION stashed in a bank...they both have a combined, nearly quarter of a TRILLION in VALUE.

In a very real sense, wealthy innovators like them create more wealth, just as Henry Ford did with the assembly line and mass production.

Ford DIDN'T invent the car (that was Karl Benz). Ford invented something far more valuable - mass production. That's why Henry Ford made far more money in his life then Karl Benz did. He sold more cars through mass production.

Currency isn't the primary source of wealth, value is.

Value is found in ideas.

Scarcity...of resources and currency is very real and not at all artificial. It's a basic reality.

Real wealth is created by new ideas, which is why those who merely work, tend to subsist, while those who innovate thrive.

Those who do not work, whether through lack of skills, infirmity, or detesting drudgery are charity cases..."wards of the states." Public assistance is neither a "right," nor an "entitlement" (entitlements are paid for, like Social Security and Medicare paid into through the FICA Tax) it is charity. It's the status of "wards of the state" that make that population most vulnerable.

While innovators like Ford and Bezos hold very real leverage over all of society, the dependent poor, neither idividually, nor collectively , hold any leverage at all.

While there is no shortage of ideas, there IS a shortage of resources that must always be taken into account.

God's Plan?...

















.
.
.
I occasionally hear from some 9/11 survivors, the belief that the reason those who survived that day, did so, because "God had a plan for us." That's NOT an uncommon belief.


The reason I take issue with the idea that those who survived, did so because, "God had a plan for them," is that it insinuates that God had no plan, nor use for those murdered that day.

I understand how survivors try to make sense of their survival, while so many others perished, through such beliefs. It IS completely understandable. I recently saw a video of interviews with survivors from the USS Forestall fire (1967). Many of those men expressed the same kinds if thoughts.

While I AM spiritual, in that I believe in some form of Creator, I am NOT religious, so I see things quite differently.

I DON'T think God, "just didn't have a plan" for the guy carjacked and killed yesterday, or that "His plan" was to use that guy, or those murdered on 9/11 as some sort of "cautionary tale."

I believe in free will and self-directed action. I DO NOT believe in predestination, nor any specific "Divine plan." Then again, I don't believe in an anthropomorphic (manlike) God. From my view, the Creator, is more likely to be an energy source, perhaps consciousness itself. Who can know such things?

In many ways, those suffering Survivor's Guilt, and other debilitating physical and psychological ailments have been effected worse, at least in terms of more long-term suffering, than those killed that day.

I'm not claiming that my view is "right," and those of other's "wrong," just noting the reality that 100 different people who worked that day (I was one) and in the aftermath...will perceive that day and the days immediately after, in 100 different ways.

WHY Is THIS Killing Manslaughter?


Image result for Amber Guyger
Amber Guyger and Botham Jean




I DON’T get how a 30 y/o Dallas Police Officer (Amber R. Guyger) could possibly mistake another apartment for her own...even if she was really, REALLY impaired. I also wonder if she was tested at the scene the night this happened. I’m guessing, maybe not?

I also DON’T get how it could take THREE DAYS for her to be arrested after she shot and killed a neighbor in HIS apartment, claiming she mistook the unit for her own and the man for an intruder.

AND...I REALLY DON’T GET how Officer Guyger was charged with...(gulp!)...manslaughter!
HOW does ANY of that happen?

This is NOT what I’d call “police violence,” it’s something else. Amber Guyger was off duty and acting as a resident of an apartment complex and not a cop.

How impaired does someone have to be to come home drunk, or drugged enough to mistake a neighbor’s apartment for her own and then shoot that neighbor, after “mistaking HIM for an intruder.”

NONE of that makes any sense at all, to me.
I wonder IF the Dallas PD can be counted on to thoroughly investigate this incident.

I mean IF Ms. Amber Guyger and Mr. Botham Jean had an...un-neighborly co-existence? Under those conditions, this would take on a very different patina...like a 1st degree murder patina.

Maybe I'm cynical, but the "mistaken identity" story makes no sense, while the "I hate my neighbor" scenario does.

As it stands, I DON’T get how this is being charged as manslaughter right now. Her gun didn’t go off accidentally.

SHE entered the wrong apartment.

SHE shot the resident in HIS own apartment after an unwarranted entry.

Hmmmm, THAT sounds like 2nd degree murder to me.

Think of how the charges would’ve played out had a drunken Botham Jean wandered into Amber Guyger’s apartment and shot her to death after “mistaking her for an intruder.”

Do you think THAT would’ve been charged as manslaughter?

Do you think it would’ve taken 3 whole days to make an arrest in that instance?


I’m thinking...NOT.

Even IF Serena Wasn’t RIGHT...She WASN’T All Wrong!











.
.
.
.

Referee Carlos Ramos seemed to derail Serena Williams’ chance at winning the U.S. Open Saturday and, like too many referees today, seemed to want to become the star of the Finals.

The “coaching” call, over signaling by Serena Williams’ coach (Patrick Mouratoglou) has been a contentious one for awhile now.

Apparently, in the 2nd game of the first set, Ramos spotted Mouratoglou holding his hands apart, possibly indicating to Williams that she should be playing a little closer to the baseline, and she was instantly handed a code violation.

Although it was Mouratoglou who was the one communicating with Williams, the rules say that players are responsible for the conduct of their parties, and so Williams was punished.

This first penalty, came as a warning, but it directly led to the dramatic events that followed, in which Williams was handed a second violation and penalized a point for smashing her racquet, after she’d apparently mistakenly thought that she and Ramos had reached an understanding on the first call.

Then, after calling Ramos a "thief", she was slugged with a further penalty — this time an entire game — on her way to a straight sets loss.

Such in game coaching is allegedly very common and USUALLY iconic stars (Williams IS one) are treated a little differently, for instance LeBron James and Tom Brady. There’s rarely been any such deference offered to Serena Williams, perhaps the most dominant sports figure in modern times.

Serena Williams should not have had her match derailed like that, but it happened.

Former players readily acknowledge that coaching during matches is endemic on the tour, raising the question as to whether it is being policed properly, or even at all.

“I was coaching but I don’t think she looked at me,” said Mouratoglou afterwards. “I am honest, I was coaching, Sascha [Bajin, Osaka’s coach] was coaching the whole time too. This is one of the rules that is ruining tennis. She [Serena Williams] will struggle to come back from this.”

Worse still, is that in the post-match controversy, she’s taken most of the blame, for a meltdown as much triggered by an inflexible umpire’s stubbornness as by Serena Williams’ temper.

Perhaps the worst abuse came from Aussie cartoonist Mark Knight with the ugly cartoon below.

Michael Goodwin's Very Accurate Assessment...

.
.
Michael Goodwin is right that, "America is being scandalized by four enormous events that are happening simultaneously. By scandalized, I mean that people are shocked and outraged at what they regard as breaches of acceptable behavior or morality.

"That wouldn’t be a problem if the vast majority were scandalized by the same things. That’s not the America we have. The vicious polarization stems from the fact that the country is split almost exactly in half over what people are outraged about." (https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2018/08/28/these-are-the-real-scandals-plaguing-our-country/amp/)

He lists the four scandalizing events as, first, Donald Trump’s boorish Presidency, although he correctly notes; "Still, Trump won the election fairly and the economy is booming, yet too many Americans can’t accept those truths. Their attempts to bring him down define the three other scandalizing events."

Those other three scandalizing events are, the implosion of our mainstream media. Goodwin's observation, "For the latest example, look at how CNN is supporting one of its anti-Trump stories even though its source, lawyer Lanny Davis, says he gave the network wrong information. So the world knows the story is wrong, but CNN won’t admit it.

"Instead of making Trump look good, CNN would rather make itself look bad and confirm Trump’s assertion that it promotes fake news. How crazy is that?"

The next event he notes is the behavior of some federal agencies. The DoJ, the FBI and the CIA, that all, in his words, "took liberties that were morally offensive, and possibly illegal," noting that some of those bad actors were "dumb enough" to put some of those things in writing!

The final scandalizing event Michael Goodwin notes is the foolish reaction of Democrats.

In Goodwin's view, the "Dems’ answers to his presidency can be divided into two: political assassination and political suicide."

He's also correct that the "political assassination" group has gone all in on the Mueller investigation, which has yet to come up with any evidence of collusion, Lanny Davis' misinforming CNN, not withstanding. The Manafort trial revealed no evidence of collusion, nor has apparently anything gleaned from the Cohen indictment.

Goodwin's right that those prospects of Mueller proving collusion are remote, which is why, in what looks like hysterical desperation that group has retreated to the hope that Stormy Daniels might bring the Trump administration to an end.

Consider that no one got all that worked up over Bill Clinton having sex in the Oval Office. Even the presumed coercion wasn't seen as a big deal, even by the National Organization for Women! NOT their finest hour.

According to Goodwin, the "political suicide" Dems are those who've embraced going even further Left. Let's see if that changes if Buffalo voters put the daffy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, OR if they actually vote in Joe Crowley, who is STILL on the ballot for November.

Chuck Todd's "Bombshell" Prediction...Wrong?

.
.
On Thursday, August 30th, NBC's Chuck Todd said, "I wouldn't miss work tomorrow," claiming a Mueller "bombshell" might be released Friday, August 31st.

It didn't happen.

Did MSNBC just dash viewer hopes again, OR, did Robert Mueller delay an announcement out of respect for John McCain's Saturday Funeral?

It COULD BE the latter.

In that case, the Mueller team MAY be poised to make such an announcement this week, as Friday, the 7th enters into that 60 day window that Mueller and others have acknowledged as a period that should be free from any actions that may effect electoral outcomes.

So, if something's coming, it'll probably be THIS week, or sometimevAFTER November 6th.

There ARE some high profile possibilities. After all, even Roger Stone has been predicting his and Donald Trump Jr.'s indictment for nearly a month, as he's begged for donations to his defense fund. (full disclosure...I gave)

I DON'T believe the Trump Tower meetings constituted "collusion." Those tapes have existed for over two years (Summer, 2016) and they've been reviewed, even scrutinized since.

If they were truly damning, Donald Trump Jr., who was in attendance, would've/SHOULD'VE been indicted over a year ago.

NBC News has reported that Kristin Davis, a close friend of Roger Stone's and the former "Manhattan Madam," who helped run a prostitution ring patronized by well-connected New Yorkers, has testified before the Mueller grand jury.

It's also been reported that another Stone associate, Randy Credico, has testified before the Mueller team.

Still another Stone associate, Andrew Miller, has been held in contempt of court by a Washington federal judge for refusing to testify.

In Roger Stone's letter asking for donations to his legal defense fund, he says that, "I now know Trump-targeting prosecutors have been monitoring my e-mails, text messages, and phone calls since 2016! They still have no evidence of Russian Collusion, or any other illegal activity."

Stone claims, "I am guilty of nothing other than supporting Donald Trump."

However, he did earlier claim, after denying having met with any Russians during the campaign that he did meet with a Russian man offering "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in May, 2016 on a Florida golf course.

He told prosecutors, he'd "simply forgotten that encounter," because "nothing ever came of it."

Roger Stone has said that he expects Donald Trump Jr. to be indicted for lying to the FBI.

Of course, NONE of these would be "bombshells" UNLESS accompanied by some verifiable proof of Trump team collusion.

Even worse, IF the Mueller team does look indict Donald Trump Jr. &/or Roger Stone within the two month election window, that, in and of itself, would be evidence that those who've claimed the investigation was entirely politically motivated...were right.

The Tenor of These Times

Here's a letter sent to Michael Goodwin of the NY Post.

It reflects about 50% of the popukation's views on the election of Donald Trump.

The political-media class hasn't been able to make the case for an Anglo-American Globalism that the rest of the world has roundly rejected.

In 2016, the American people voted in a political outsider to change things. They'd voted for change in 2008 and 2012, but never got it.

Now there IS change occurring, but that hasn't gone over well with the American political-media class and their masters - the global financial elite.

Here's that letter; 

"We have always been taught, and many of us believed until now, that our frustrations with government can be adjudicated at the ballot box.

This Mueller investigation and the actions by the deep state and media prove that to be a lie.

“With a nullification of our vote, some of ‘we the people’ know we have lost not only our voice, but our constitutional rights and probably our country.”

(Carole Lompolo in a letter to the NY Post's Michael Goodwin)

Too Soon?...

.
.
OK, I'll say it; I DON'T believe Donald Trump ever "besmirched" Senator John McCain.

He acknowledged and praised his service, but doubted his "heroism."

Many Veterans who'd known him did too, but it's galling when someone who didn't serve, especially someone who legally avoided the draft takes a shot any Veteran.

ALL who served warrant respect for that service, but military hero is akin to a professional sports "Star."

YES, it's true that VERY few people make it into the NBA, NFL, or MLB and fewer still ever start on a team. Just making to "the big leagues" warrants respect for that person's athleticism, but few...VERY FEW ever become "stars." Not every starter is a "star," just as not everyone who served in the military, is a "hero."

Many Vets, including many former POW's detested John McCain, calling him, "Hanoi John," and "Songbird."

One of his alleged 32 recordings made during his captivity surfaced during his 2008 run for the Presidency (https://www.trunews.com/article/john-mccains-1969-tokyo-rose-propaganda-recording-released)
&
(https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/azdc/2016/08/13/john-mccain-pow-recordings-revive-historic-painful-episode/88547416/)

Moreover, Naval archives suggest that McCain's "wet start," on the USS Forestal, on July 29th, 1967, sent flames rocketing out his jet's engines, igniting a Zuni missile on the plane behind him.

That missile hit McCain's plane, but its safety device kept it from detonating from that glancing blow, but it continued on, and slammed into other ordinance stored on deck, causing a conflagration that killed 134 sailors and wounded 161 others.

But it's NOT his service that is most questionable, it's his political career that has been far more troublesome.

He led the charge to shut down the Congressional POW/MIA investigations and he continually voted AGAINST increased funding for Veterans health...as well as AGAINST the Zadroga Bill, funding healthcare for 9/11 First Responders.

Some  of Senator McCain's critical votes on Veteran issues are:

In 2006, McCain voted against a funding amendment (S. Amdt. 3704) to provide $20 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for health care facilities [source: U.S. Senate].

He voted against another 2006 amendment (S. Amdt. 3642) that provided the VA an additional $430 million in funding for outpatient care and treatment for veterans [source: U.S. Senate].

McCain voted against S. Amdt. 3007 in 2006, which would have provided an additional $1.5 billion in funding for veterans' health care in FY 2007 by closing tax loopholes [source: U.S. Senate].

In 2005, he voted against an amendment to provide an additional $500 million for veterans' mental health care for each year between 2006 and 2010 (S. Amdt. 2634) [source: U.S. Senate].

McCain voted for the successful passage of H.R. 2528 in 2005, which provided funding for veterans' benefits and service for FY 2006 [source: U.S. Senate].

In 2005, he voted in favor of providing emergency funding for veterans' services for FY 2005 (S. Amdt. 1129) [source: U.S. Senate].

He voted in favor of an amendment in 2004 (S. Amdt. 3409) proposing a guarantee of funding increases for veterans' health care adjusted for inflation and population increases [source: U.S. Senate].

McCain voted no on an amendment S. Amdt. 2745 in 2004, which would have increased funding for veterans' medical care by $1.8 billion by "eliminating abusive tax loopholes" [source: U.S. Senate].

McCain voted against an increase of $650 million for veterans' medical care in 2001 (S. Amdt. 1218) [source: U.S. Senate].

Here are some links to the USS Forestal incident and McCain (YouTube): https://youtu.be/EGc_jIC5-C4
&
https://youtu.be/pIWeq2DL_N4

Rolling Stone's 2008 article on McCain dredged up even more troubling assertions (https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/john-mccain-make-believe-maverick-202004/)

There remain numerous videos from Vets Against McCain online:
https://youtu.be/vFM1xqqTX_g
&
https://youtu.be/NnlQpKdNjWU
&
https://youtu.be/EHF0yXrwr-0

BUT the WORST thing McCain might be guilty of is defending, as Jared Taylor notes, "the wrong America.

Instead of defending TRADITIONAL America, the pre-1964, JFK-America, McCain has consistently defended the post-JFK, universalist America. (https://youtu.be/THSl239LOtY)

I also respect and honor John McCain's Military Service. I DON'T feel the same about his political views...I just hope this isn't, you know...too soon.

Please NRA, Just DON'T Do It!

.
.
NY State, among other jurisdictions, is seeking to expand the existing criminal and mental/emotional health restrictions on gun ownership.

Has someone from Andy Cuomo's administration been reading my blog (http://workingclassconservative.blogspot.com/?m=1)?

I've been advocating ratcheting up those restrictions for years.

Right now, the criminal restrictions require a felony conviction.

With the stroke of a pen, that could be changed to anyone CHARGED with a violent crime, even if it's pled down to a lesser offense. Domestic abusers, even those sentenced to Anger Management CAN, by law, be barred from legally owning guns.

SAME with mental/emotional health restrictions. The current requirement of having to have been institutionalized for a mental/emotional problem, is ridiculous, given how rare such involuntary confinements are today.

Again, with the stroke of a pen, anyone diagnosed and treated for any mental/emotional problem, from Depression to PTSD CAN be barred from legally owning guns.

The NRA would be foolish to fight such sensible and relatively minor expansions.

ESPECIALLY the mental/emotional health provisions. Given that almost every mass shooter has been diagnosed as mentally ill - Jared Loughner, Dylann Roof, Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Seung-Hui Cho, Micah X. Johnson, and now David Katz, the Jacksonville, FL shooter (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/08/28/us/jacksonville-madden-shooter-katz-mental-health-invs/index.html), there's really no way to argue AGAINST ratcheting up the restrictions on mental/emotional health.

ANYONE diagnosed with ANY serious mental/emotional illness, from Depression, to PTSD, to Bipolar Disorder, to Schizophrenia SHOULD BE barred from legally owning firearms.

So, to the NRA, I'd say, DON'T DO IT!

What REALLY Happened...in 2016?


.
.
Hillary Clinton offered her explanation of her 2016 loss, in her ponderous, whining tome, "Whaaa Happened," blaming "the media," specifically CNN & MSNBC, for not doing enough, nor campaigning hard enough, for her, and James Comey, despite saving her from immediate criminal indictment by changing his last phrase in describing her handling of classified information FROM "grossly negligent" (a criminal charge), TO  "extremely careless" (a non-legal term) for her own unelectability.

Here is a far more accurate accounting of the TRUTH about 2016; (https://youtu.be/wCOKz6a7TVk)

Trump was, in many ways, a creation of the DNC, which early on set two agendas, (1) eliminating Bernie Sanders as a viable Democratic opponent within that Party's Primaries and, (2) undermining the probable Republican opposition they were most concerned about (Bush, Rubio, Walker).

They initially saw Trump as the surest loser in a general election and the Democrat-controlled media lavished the most attention, the most coverage and the most free air time to Donald Trump.

On May 22nd, 2016, a national poll showed Trump leading 43.4% to 43.2%. The first time Trump led in any such poll.

Then, on May 25th, 2016 the DNC emails appeared on Wikileaks.

To this day, Julian Assange swears that they were LEAKED. The DNC claims they were hacked, in effect admitting to gross negligence/incompetence.

But WHY?

Today the DNC is nearly broke. Why would they admit to such gross negligence, and at such a cost?

The timing is highly suspicious. Trump takes the first lead in a national poll and three days later these DNC emails are dumped?

They know the late Seth Rich, a Bernie Sanders supporter, had downloaded those emails to a thumb drive and it's known that he'd been in contact with Wikileaks before the release of those emails, more than a month before his odd death, being shot and killed in "an apparent robbery," despite nothing being taken from him.

Donna Brazile, the interim DNC head, who'd wanted to replace Hillary Clinton with Joe Biden, dedicated her book ("Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073TWBKP4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_nAwIBbYJZAQ2W) in part to "the patriot Seth Rich," and Newsweek reported, "Rich appears elsewhere in Brazile’s book, as the Post reported earlier in the weekend. She wrote that Rich’s murder haunted her and that she'd installed surveillance cameras at her home and would keep the blinds in her office window closed so she could not be seen by snipers, according to the Post." (https://www.newsweek.com/donna-brazile-book-seth-rich-dnc-murder-conspiracy-702838)

Is it more likely that the DNC, in order to slime a political enemy (Trump), dumped/leaked their own emails as part of a larger strategy, OR that Gucifer 2.0, ultimately found to be a Romanian cab driver; "On June 21, 2016, in an interview with Vice, "Guccifer 2.0" stated that he is Romanian, which is the nationality of Marcel Lehel Lazer, a Romanian hacker who originally used the "Guccifer" pseudonym," hacked the DNC's emails, as both the DNC and our "Intelligence Community" assert and is, in fact, not a Romanian, but a Russian agent?

I'm far more prone to believe Assange over Brennan, Clapper, Comey , or Strzok, myself.

How about you?

Most of us Reject Freedom/Individualism

Government is a tool of the rich and powerful. It belongs to them.

Votes don't matter in a democracy, when money buys votes.

That's why calls for, "Power to the people," & "We need a democratic socialism," are foolish. The powerful must find that amusing, even comforting.

We have Corporatism in the West, a partnership of business/banks and government, with government as the junior partner.

That's why Barack Obama, who ran to the Left of Bernie Sanders, wound up governing like G W Bush.

The lazy man's answer is, "More government, but controlled by the people." That's lazy because they want to continue all the free stuff and the protections for the poor and disabled, but without Corporate control.

The only workable answer is LESS government...LOCALIZED government.

The Libertarians, specifically the Paleo-Libertarians like Murray Rothbury and Milton Friedman are right.

HOWEVER, under such a system, there'd be no protections, save for religious charities, for the poor. No one would be able to get more than they earn, under such a system.

Such a society would almost certainly be less prosperous for most individuals, despite producing greater prosperity overall (more unequal), and somewhat more spiritual.

That really doesn't seem to be what most Americans really want. Especially those who admire Sweden from afar.

Sweden is as Corporatist as the U.S. It has more generous health, education and social spending because it spends very little on defense. We have less to spend on those things because we must spend more on defense..."protecting the West."

The overall sense of fear/threat that permeates our society is; (1) generated by a Corporate media & (2) vital to Corporate governments, because they need to keep the people divided and frightened of each other.

It's a very sound strategy for social control.

Escaping Corporatism is incompatible with the desire for more "fairness/equality" and things like "more health, education and social spending," which amounts to, "More free stuff to those in need."

To escape Corporatism, a people NEED to embrace LIBERTY - full self ownership/responsibility. We'd each get only what we earn and we'd have to be willing to toil all the days of our lives.

That's NOT what most Americans appear to want.

Here, in the U.S , many of us really seem to want little more than a "reshuffling of the deck"....we want Sweden, which we cannot be given. We ARE the world's policeman and have been since the end of WWII.

Besides, even Sweden isn't really the "Sweden," of American fantasies.

Ironically enough, that seems to be the source of most of the current Trump hate. It's NOT that he's a political outsider and an anti-establishment guy...he IS all of that.

Donald Trump's a lifelong NY Democrat who switched Parties in 2009 to hijack the GOP from the GOP establishment (GOPe), the McConnell's, Graham's, Ryan's, Sasse's, etc. AND his policies have deregulated much of society, generating more jobs and prosperity, BUT making the social safety net most people want, somewhat less secure.

That's a necessary trade off. We can't have both abundant jobs AND massive government regulation and a huge social safety net. Those things are at odds with each other.

There's a saying in Real Estate, "Buyers are liars." It's based on the fact that many buyers wind up ultimately buying something very different than what they originally tell the Realtor they want.

It's really not because we're liars. It's because many of us don't really know what we want until we see it.

That goes for politics, as much as anything. Most of us say, "We want more freedom," but we really want more free stuff...which is actually desiring the reverse.

In America, we don't have a free society any longer.

The personal sovereignty, individualism and the unbridled free market were too volatile...too hard for most people.

The free market economy was officially scrapped on December 23rd, 1913 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act.

Today's Western governments have very little to fear from insurrection.

Law Enforcement federal and local, along with the Military will enthusiastically put down any such "people's movement."

Moreover, Trump has, (1) proven them right; many people STILL believe in our media, even many who claim not to trust it and (2) they more clearly see WHO their real enemies are and WHERE they reside.

Antifa and BLM were astroturfed (bought and paid for), pushed by the media...even "Unite the Right" was a fake group. Jason Kessler was an Occupy Wall Street activist and an Obama supporter. His actions were almost certainly coordinated with VA. Governor Terry McAullife and enthusiastically featured on the media.

The "Resistance" is faked and it's at least very possible that Donald Trump may be a part of it. His boorishness makes it hard for anyone to really like him, so his support comes from those who hate this political-media class more than they would an obnoxious oaf.

Those people are the only worthy target of a government/political-media class looking to put down any potential, true "resistance" to itself.

Oddly enough, most Americans DON'T seem to WANT more personal sovereignty, individualism, or a more free society. Most WANT to be taken care of by government.

That's why the REAL resistance, that against our political-media class, seems ultimately unlikely to succeed.

On that score, I hope I'm wrong.

AND...More High Hopes Dashed...

Lanny Davis




A week ago the staffs at MSNBC, CNN, the WaPo, the NY Times, etc were popping champagne corks over Lanny Davis' revelation that, a source has confirmed that President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen was willing to tell Robert Mueller that Donald Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting, attended by his son, Donald Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Rob Goldstone, Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist, Russian bussinessman Irakly Kaveladze
and Anatoli Samochornov, a Russian interpreter...BUT, this is Lanny Davis...and, well, like any good "Clintonista," he pulled the rug out from all those celebrants, forcing many to recork their champagne. (https://apnews.com/1d791d3828504336b6a952912621fe56
)


It turns out, Lanny Davis was "the source," and he made that story up.
CNN tried to hang on by claiming "multiple sources," but that fell apart after Davis acknowledged that neither he nor anyone else witnessed Cohen saying any such thing.

Here's what they DO have out of all this, Cohen acknowledging that he paid off at least two women that Donald Trump had affairs with, at Trump’s behest.

But the affairs are NOT illegal, nor even all that politically damaging post-Bill Clinton AND given that Trump largely self financed his campaign, proving that these payoffs were "illicit campaign donations," is at best, a long shot.

If Michael Cohen negotiated payments and transferred money to the women, it was almost certainly Trump's own cash.

That AIN'T gonna get impeachment done.

ONLY proof of direct COLLUSION between Donald Trump and the Russians will do.

If anything, this looks like desperation, so far.

The Manafort trial had NOTHING to do with collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and THIS looks even worse! It looks like a desperate switch to some potential electoral improprieties, because they can't prove collusion.

Lemme guess, Mueller's next move will be...maybe putting out as "damaging a report," as they can in October?

Hey, if all you've got is that Donald Trump has a penchant for women, much like Bill Clinton, but unlike Clinton, he actually has women throwing themselves at him...good luck with that.

I think most Americans are like me on that score, I admire a 72 y/o stud! If anything, I'm jealous.

"Look at these HUGE hands!"....Indeed!

Bonobos.... AND Their #EvolveTheDefinition



THIS is Corporatism at work.

The dolts in society think Corporations are innately Conservative.

They are NOT.

When Nestlé bought Ben & Jerry's ice cream, they didn't scale back the company's devotion to Leftist causes, they actually ratcheted up.
They are Corporatist. They are Anglo-American Globalist because they seek to restructure the globe as America to expand their consumer base.

In short, they are scum.

Take this inane Walmart (Bonobos) commercial airing on...where else? ESPN; (https://youtu.be/j6jz2Jma5-s
)



Apparently Bonobos, a subsidiary of Walmart since June of 2017 when Walmart acquired Bonobos for $310 million, and its parent company would like to change or #evolve the definition of masculinity with the toxic commercial above.

After seeing this ad, I couldn't imagine ever buying anything from that brand. I could only imagine something out of that Dave Chappelle "Prince" skit (https://youtu.be/ff8LEx9Mw54
)...especially the part at the 3:15 mark when the late Charlie Murphy said, "I don't know what he was angry about. I mean he knew where he got those shirts and it damn sure wasn't the Mem's Department."


How does this ad help sales?






So, Turns Out Kathy Griffin DID Shame Kevin Hart!

I'd say, "Kevin Hart must've bowed to the pressure," but WHAT pressure.

Sure, Kathy Griffin called him out for "avoiding joking about politics," that is, attacking Trump through "jokes," but who pays attention to Kathy Griffin?


Weird huh!

An Unlikely Nationalist...From Ireland

Ireland's Kevin Sharkey





Kevin Sharkey is an unlikely Irish Nationalist. Born of an Irish nurse and a Nigerian father, studying at the time, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. (https://www.irishcentral.com/news/irishvoice/irish-immigration-kevin-sharkey)

Kevin Sharkey was born in Dublin in St. Patrick’s Mother and Baby Home of Navan Road in 1961, but was brought up in Killybegs, County Donegal. His birth father was a Nigerian student at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and his birth mother was of Irish descent.

With no state supports available for single parents at the time, adoption was the societal norm. Kevin was adopted by the Sharkey family at a very young age. As a child he took part in Irish dancing, which won him 37 medals before the age of 12.

In late 2005, Kevin Sharkey announced his intention to take the Irish State to the European Court of Human Rights, in order to force the recognition of same-sex partnerships, specifically civil partnerships. Sharkey cited personal reasons for this, decrying the fact that if he were to marry his long-term male partner Ade Antigha in Spain (where the two were living at the time), the marriage would not be recognized by Irish law. Ireland since legalized Civil Partnerships in 2011 and Same-Sex Marriage in 2015.

His life has not been without its struggles, both personal and financial. In the summer of 2016, struggling again with his finances, Sharkey briefly became homeless while living in Dublin.

Today he is Senior Vice President and Executive Editorial Director, Decorating, and Executive Creative Director, Merchandising for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. (MSLO).

Sharkey’s key issue in the contest is immigration into Ireland, but not in the way many might expect. Despite being a child of an immigrant and black father Sharkey is calling for less immigration, not more, stating that Ireland must put Irish people first.

In that regard, he echoes Donald Trump and his “Put America First” platform, but Sharkey is also providing the first major challenge on the issue of who gets to immigrate to Ireland.

Currently some 115,000 immigrants are entering Ireland annually, many from Third World countries wracked with war and turmoil. They arrive with language, education and placement problems that has overwhelmed Ireland at times.

The total foreign-born population of Ireland is now 12 percent, approximately the same as America’s numbers. For a country far better known for emigration, the immigrant influx has proven a difficult issue. Worse still, these new arivals come at a time when Ireland is still repaying huge loans to Europe from the financial bailout.

A general lack of housing, and access to medical care are just two huge issues the country is grappling with.

So, with his anti-immigrant tone, Sharkey is articulating what many Irish seem to be thinking but fear to voicing, out of concerns over being called “racist.”

Many of Kevin Sharkey’s quotes sound close to those of Trump’s; "If we don't protect our future, if we don't protect what we have, what has made us Irish, we won't be Irish in 200 years.

"I'm not against immigration. Look at Australia. They have a beautiful system there. If you are contributing, if you have a trade that we need and you can support yourself you are welcome.”

He’s added, “Ireland is being repopulated and it doesn't seem to matter to the powers that be who is coming.”

He calls for 'open dialogue' on immigration. (FULL INTERVIEW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7r8WhmzlSs)

As for Sharkey, he notes, that there’s a belief among many in Ireland that the Irish themselves are being left behind. Sharkey stated that in running for president, “I'd hope to bring an awareness to the fact that in Ireland we seem to have shifted away a little bit from looking after the Irish first.”

Ireland, he says, has "fallen into this politically correct speech and people are censoring themselves when they really should be able to have an honest dialogue."

Kevin Sharkey is right.

It’d be good...from a Nationalist viewpoint to see Kevin Sharkey shock Michael Higgins (the favorite) in Ireland’s Presidential election later this year.
