The new face of suburbia: Economic woes and early death

The new face of suburbia: Economic woes and early death

Getting lost in suburbia is taking on a grim new meaning in the U.S.

The nation’s suburbs, once the wellspring of the American Dream, now has the highest rate of premature deaths from drug overdoses, according to a new findings from the County Health Rankings, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Just a decade ago, America’s suburbs had the lowest rate of premature death from ODs.

The spike in drug-related deaths is contributing to what County Rankings’ Marjory Givens said is setting off “alarm bells” among public health experts: More younger Americans are dying prematurely, especially those aged 15 to 44. The drug overdose epidemic is the top cause of early death among 25- to 44-year-olds, an age many people in this group traditionally buy their first homes and embark on careers.

Yet for many adults, such achievements appear unobtainable, leading to what experts call “deaths of despair.”

The data on drug-related deaths in suburbia “is absolutely an interesting and troubling finding,” Givens, the deputy director of data and science for County Health Rankings, said. “Access to affordable health care is important, but we know it’s so much more than that. Social and economic factors are so important — the ability to have a good job, having social and family supports.”

Good jobs and the kind of social structure that propped up generations of Americans are fading in many areas of the country. Workers without college degrees have found themselves especially vulnerable to changes in the labor market. In the 1970s, Americans with only high school degrees could look forward to earning a steady, livable wage with benefits, but those days are long gone.

White Americans without college degrees are suffering from “deaths of despair” after years of weak demand for their skills and stagnant wages, according to research from Princeton economists Anne Case and Nobel Prize winner Angus Deaton. Earlier this month, they noted the phenomenon had spread across the country, touching both rural areas and cities.

The impact of globalization, intensified by trade policy that effectively pits American workers against their lower-wage peers around the world, isn’t limited to suburbia.

Economists Peter Schott of the Yale School of Management and Justin Pierce of the Federal Reserve have found that mortality rates spiked in counties around the U.S. that suffered the greatest economic disruption after trade policy was changed to make it easier for manufacturers to ship jobs to China or for Chinese companies to do business in the U.S.

“What you see is that mortality rates rise and stay high in the most exposed counties,” Schott said, noting the spike in unemployment in those regions after the U.S. liberalized trade with China in 2000. The sharpest increase in death rates were found in communities in the Southeast and in New England where manufacturing jobs have evaporated.

“Trade policy is sometimes sold as everyone wins — that’s clearly too simple a way of picturing it,” he said.

Economic distress is prompting some Americans to look for relief in the form of drugs, alcohol and other unhealthy behaviors. The opioid crisis appears to be exacerbating these problems.

“There’s a desire to escape from stress and anxiety and hopelessness and shame,” said Shannon Monnat, a sociologist at Pennsylvania State University. She noted that deaths from drug overdoses are highest among white men but are rising fastest among women. “Swaths of the country are doing pretty badly.”

She added, “The evidence is growing stronger every day that income inequality is bad for health.”

The problems go far beyond white adults, the County Health Rankings found. While premature deaths due to drug overdose were highest among whites and Native Americans in 2015, the overall premature mortality rate — including those due to suicide and homicide — are highest among American Indians, Alaskan natives and blacks.

The study also looked at people between 16 to 24, or what Givens calls an “invisible population.” One out of eight of this age group are considered disconnected from either the labor market or education market. Neither working nor in school, these young Americans are at higher risk for suffering from poverty and teen births, all of which can hurt their ability to become successful adults. More than one in five young adults in rural counties are considered disconnected, compared with slightly more than one in eight in the cities.

“There is some sense of urgency here,” Givens said. “The communities with higher rates of youth disconnection are those those that have struggled with economic growth.”

MICHAEL MOORE IS A BIG FAT STUPID IDIOT

Up out of the Bunker Archives. In 2003 I was quite certain Moore was a big fat stupid idiot.  He did not grow out of it.

Present Day – “Historians in the near future (because that may be the only future we have) will mark today, March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began,” …  This is a defining moment in the history of mankind. By signing these executive orders today, Trump is declaring an act of war on the planet and its inhabitants. The one silver lining here is that Trump can’t kill the planet; the planet wants to live and has a long history of wiping out any real or perceived threats.” – Michael BFSI Moore

2003 – “They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet. …We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.” – Michael Moore in the London Mirror

It’s my general rule to not attack individuals for exercising their first amendment right to free expression.  Instead, I prefer to attack their ideas and offer an opinion of my own.  I realize that the title of this article appears to go against that general rule so allow me to explain it for you.  Big describes one who is large or great in dimension or bulk.  Moore is. Fat describes one notable for having an unusual amount of fat.  Moore does.  Stupid describes one that is slow of mind, given to unintelligent decisions or acts, acting in an unintelligent or careless manner and lacking intelligence or reason.  This is Mr. Moore’s description of “We Americans”…, showing “Our stupidity.”  We and our, are inclusive Michael.  An idiot is a foolish or stupid person. Again, this is Mr. Moore’s self-descriptive term.  So, as you can see, I am not mindlessly lashing out at Mr. Moore but, giving you an accurate physical description of him and analyzing his statement for ease of understanding.   Moore can’t decide from one sentence to the next if he is one of us or not.  He begins with “They are” then transitions to “we” and “our.”  Gee Mikie, you’d think that one who makes his living communicating could do better.  Stupidity is embarrassing at times, isn’t it?  Mr. Moore made another intelligent statement quoted in the London Mirror.  This one was about our President.  “I really do believe Bush is dumber than s@?*.  Very good Mikie, really shows us how intelligent you are.  Welcome to the stupid Americans club.

It’s unfortunate, but Mr. Moore has a slew of celebrity buds expressing the same things about Americans in general and our President in particular.  What’s odd is that most of them choose to do it while in other countries.  Johnny Dep likens America to a dumb puppy.  Mr. Dep lives in France.  Hanoi Jane told some Canadians that we are ignorant of history and reality here in America.  Jane, we know history well.  Would you like us to remind you of your role in the Vietnam War?  I have an idea Jane, why don’t you go hang out with Binnie Laden and boys like you did with the communists in Vietnam.  And, don’t forget to wear your Burkha and show them your Barbarella movie, that’ll really please them.  Her hubby Ted says that we have some of the dumbest people in the world here in the USA.  You’re likely right Ted.  If we were smarter, you wouldn’t be rich.  Martin Sheen, while in Canada, referred to America as the land of lunatics.  He also told the BBC that our President is a moron.  Of course, Martin’s never been a president, but he knows about them because he has played one on TV.  If you look around the papers and the Internet, you can find all sorts of flattering comments about America coming from so-called American celebrities.  These folks are ruining entertainment for me.  There are movies I can’t watch anymore and music I can’t listen to because the performer’s political commentary pops into my mind thus spoiling the entertainment value.  As Johnny said, I’m a dumb puppy.  Whack me on the nose enough times and I’ll eventually stop – watching your movies and listening to your music that is.  That’s my freedom of expression.

This group will argue with you about their patriotism, and I’m not ready to call them traitors, but I will call their intellect and exercise of responsibility into question and I’m just a dumb ol’ country boy from West Virginia.  A favorite expression among this group of scholars is “selected not elected” when talking of President Bush.  Obviously, our intellectual celebrity patriots lack basic knowledge of the constitution – beyond the first amendment that is.  Otherwise, they’d understand the Electoral College and how it’s used to elect our presidents.  You can find out about it by reading Article II of the Constitution guys.  Read up on it and get back to me.

There’s another real support America guy out there.  It’s little Timmy Robbins.  Mr. Robbins, a rabid anti-President Bush, anti-war person has written and directed a play.  Using his first amendment right of free expression he gives us his version of what’s happened in Iraq.

Robbins portrays journalists as Pentagon puppets, U.S. soldiers as thieves and killers of innocent women and children, and the Bush cabinet as war mongers willing to start a war to escape the negative publicity of the Enron scandal. – William LaJeunesse, FOX News

It’s a great country, which allows people to make up the truth as they see it and present it to the public.  There’s something unfortunate here, however.  That is that there are people naïve enough to believe it – including most of the brilliant celebrities I’ve already mentioned.  I was listening to a radio program the other day.  The host has what he calls “Man in the street” interviews.  This particular day, he interviewed several professed college students.  None of them could name the Vice President or Secretary of State, however they all knew about Kobe.  Maybe Mikie is right.  Maybe we are mostly stupid.  Unfortunately, this group will watch and believe Mr. Robbins’ spin on Iraq.

I’ll finish my rant with a couple of thoughts for my celebrity friends.  Middle Eastern, Islamic fanatical terrorists attacked our country.  Fortunately, for us, our leader decided that we should respond with more than a cruise missile strike on an aspirin factory in Sudan.  We chose instead to go to Afghanistan, then to Iraq.  Note that I told you that these are Middle Eastern terrorists.  If you’ll reflect on your tremendous knowledge of history H. Jane, then you be able to see why it’s preferable to fight wars in the enemy’s cities and not ours.  I suggest you look for additional information on this topic under World War I, World War II, Germany and Japan.  Iraq is the bridgehead in the war against terror just as Normandy was the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.  I’m sure that with your great knowledge H. Jane you were able to put that together without my help.  When Iraq is stable, and it will be, the most potent weapon in our inventory will be let loose on the Middle East.  That’s democracy in case you’re wondering Mikie.  Then the average Middle Easterner may be able to tell his countrymen and president how stupid he believes they are and not fear a beheading after saying it.

I support the right to freely express thoughts and opinions.  It’s one of the most cherished rights we have.  I served many years under oath to defend that right.  With the exercise of rights in our great democracy also comes responsibility.  Timmy, it’s just a matter of time before your play is quoted repeatedly on Al-Jazerra TV and printed in the Arab press as representing American public opinion.  What a coup that is for you, huh?  Tonight when you relax in your comfortable home with a glass of wine while listening to your favorite Streisand and Dixie Chicks music I want you to think of something.  I want you to think about American Soldiers.  I want you to see their faces.  I want you to see their families.  I want you to know that they’re where they are for you.  I want you to understand that with the responsible help that you’re providing, along with the other intellectual giants of your ilk, that they’ll likely be there in danger much longer.  Will you think about that Timmy?

Did Trump Just Unleashed a New Secret WEAPON Or Something Worse…? Patriots SHOCKED!

Gross: TSA Agent Gropes Disabled Boy In Front of His Mother At DFW Airport

It’s time to bring back profiling

 

Williamson then recorded the ‘traumatizing’ incident in a video that has now been seen more than 1.5 million times.

The video shows Aaron, red-faced, being patted down slowly over the course of two minutes by a TSA officer.

Sometimes the agent appears to pat the boy on areas that he has already checked.

The video should probably be labeled NSFW, as it’s gross. The TSA agent literally rubs the kid’s inner thighs.

I don’t think anything the TSA agent did even violated protocol, but the protocols are clearly insane.

This is humiliating to both the groper and the “gropee.”

Here’s what Williamson wrote on Facebook:

We have been through hell this morning. They detained Aaron for well over an hour at DFW. (And deliberately kept us from our flight… we are now on an alternate) We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules. He has SPD and I didn’t want my child given a pat down like this. Let me make something else crystal clear. He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine. He is still several hours later saying “I don’t know what I did. What did I do?” I am livid. Please, share… make this viral like the other children’s videos with TSA… I wish I had taped the entire interchange because it was horrifying. We had two DFW police officers that were called and flanking him on each side. Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in.

It’s time to bring back profiling. This type of madness was on the ballet in November, it lost.

 

LIVE: Deep State Attack Of Trump Fails To Slow #PedoGate Round Up

Pedophile crackdown spreads across the country

Sex trafficking busts continue to increase as Trump fulfills promise to go after pedophiles.

 

ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY

According to the Open Secrets website, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, insures over 80 million Americans and has a Federal Government contract to review and process Medicare claims.  During the 2016 election cycle, they made $6,346,640 in campaign contributions and spent $25,006,109 on lobbying efforts.

The top organization recipient was the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee (Republican Convention) receiving $1,000,000.  They were followed by the National Republican Congressional Committee at $187,800, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee at $121,830, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at $119,431, the National Republican Senatorial Committee at $111,000, and the DNC Services Corp (a Political Action Committee (PAC) extension of the Democrat National Committee) at $102,845.

This is redefining spreading the wealth around.

The top political candidates receiving Blue Cross/Blue Shield money were Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at $256,101 (they thought she’d win too) followed second by House of Representatives candidate and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan at $60,850.  Way down the list, but there just the same, is Presidential candidate Donald Trump at $12,235.  The list of House Republican candidates receiving Blue Cross/Blue Shield money either through PACs or from individuals is long. Actually longer than the Democrat list and certainly, in my view, long enough to make suspect any potential Republican crafted health care legislation or vote.  You will also find “Republican Freedom Caucus” names on the list including past Chairman Jim Jordan (OH) and new Chairman Mark Meadows (NC), my very own Congressman Alex Mooney (WV) among others: Mick Mulvaney (SC), Ron Desantis (FL), Jim Birdenstine (OK), Trent Franks (AZ), Dave Brat (VA), Keith Rothfus (PA), Gary Palmer (AL), Jeff Duncan (SC), and probably some I missed, and the topper former Representative and now Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price.  Perceptions are hell, but it appears to me that insurance cash runs deep in Washington even through the “Freedom Caucus.”  Freedom from what?  In the words of that great philosopher Kris Kristofferson:

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose,
And nothin’ ain’t worth nothin’ but it’s free,

Oh, the tangled web we weave.

I certainly do not have a problem with legal campaign contributions, but I get concerned when an insurance carrier as large a Blue Cross/Blue Shield spreads around this much cash and even more concerned when this many politicians elected and sworn to fix our looming health care disaster are recipients of it.  When that happens, what real chance does average Middle Class America have at getting legislation that favors them?

Well Mr. Trump, you were going to repeal and replace Obamacare.  That is one big reason why you were elected and why you have a Republican House and Republican Senate.  It appears however, that before you can do any of that, you need to drain the swamp. And another great philosopher once told me:

When you are up to your ass in alligators, it is hard to remember that the mission was to drain the swamp.

Mr. President, you were elected because Americans have tired of Washington as usual.  The Washington establishment is largely bought and paid for by corporate donors (Paul Ryan Major Donors 2016) (Mitch McConnell Major Donors). The two men most needed to accomplish your promised bold agenda are beholden to health insurance companies, investment companies, big banks, and Koch industries.

As your Rolling Stones campaign music says:

“you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you can get what you need.”

You are going to have to beat off a heck of a lot of alligators before you can pull the plug that drains that swamp.  To get “what you need” is going to require a coalition of decent men and women regardless of political persuasion willing to solve problems and serve the people before they serve their donors or their rigid ideology.  Only you can put out the call for these people to come forward and serve America.  That is why we elected you.  And to paraphrase the words of another Stones hit, time ain’t on your side brother.

Here They Come!

Study: Just 2 Hours Of Social Media Doubles Risk Of Social Isolation Feelings In Young Adults

PITTSBURGH — Young adults who use social media for at least two hours a day double their risk of feeling socially isolated, a new study finds.

The findings led lead author Brian A. Primack, M.D., Ph.D., director of Pitt’s Center for Research on Media, Technology and Health, to sound the alarm on the effect of too much social media in young people.

“This is an important issue to study because mental health problems and social isolation are at epidemic levels among young adults,” he says in a university news release.

Primack and his team examined questionnaires in 2014 from 1,787 Americans between the ages of 19 and 32. The surveys sought to see how often the participants logged onto the 11 most popular social networks and how much time a typical session would last.

The top social media platforms at the time were Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest, Vine and LinkedIn.

The data was then plugged into the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), a tool that evaluates social and mental health in people of all ages, to measure the participants’ perceived social isolation.

Those who spent more than two hours a day on social media were twice as likely to show signs of social isolation than participants who spent no more than 30 minutes on the sites. Similarly, young adults who visited the sites at least 58 times in a week were triple the odds of feeling socially isolated than those who only logged onto social media nine times in a week. This held true even when demographic and other control factors were taken into consideration.

“We are inherently social creatures, but modern life tends to compartmentalize us instead of bringing us together,” says Primack, who is also the assistant vice chancellor for health and society in Pitt’s Schools of the Health Sciences. “While it may seem that social media presents opportunities to fill that social void, I think this study suggests that it may not be the solution people were hoping for.”

Primack and his team considered that social media use could potentially consume a person so much that there’s little time for them to enjoy personal, real-world socializing. But the amount of time spent seeing the lives of others could also spark feelings of exclusion or jealousy. Perhaps a user might see a celebration he or she wasn’t invited to; or simply viewing a person’s photos of a family vacation or other personal event could cause someone to believe their friend enjoys a happier, more fulfilled life than them.

“I don’t doubt that some people using certain platforms in specific ways may find comfort and social connectedness via social media relationships. However, the results of this study simply remind us that, on the whole, use of social media tends to be associated with increased social isolation and not decreased social isolation,” he says.

Elizabeth Miller, M.D., Ph.D., professor of pediatrics at Pitt and chief of the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, believes it’s of course possible that the feelings of isolation may have preceded the social media use, and was in fact why the participants would then turn to the sites in the first place.

“Or it could be that their increased use of social media somehow led to feeling isolated from the real world. It also could be a combination of both,” she says. “But even if the social isolation came first, it did not seem to be alleviated by spending time online, even in purportedly social situations.”

Because Primack believes feelings of social isolation are at epidemic levels, both he and Miller suggest that doctors routinely survey patients on their social media use and keep an eye out for symptoms.

The study was published earlier this month in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

“They tried to sweeten the deal at the end by offering a more expensive bill with fewer health benefits, but alas, it wasn’t enough!” former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau slyly tweeted.

And you can jump on the phone with The Times’s Maggie Haberman and The Washington Post’s Robert Costa — ignoring that you’ve labeled them the “fake media” — and act like you’re in control. You can say that people should have waited for “Phase 2” and “Phase 3” — whatever they would have been — and that Obamacare is going to explode and that the Democrats are going to get the blame. But it doesn’t work that way. You own it now.

You’re all about flashy marketing so you didn’t notice that the bill was junk, so lame that even Republicans skittered away.

You were humiliated right out of the chute by the establishment guys who hooked you into their agenda — a massive transfer of wealth to rich people — and drew you away from your own.

You got played.

It took W. years to smash everything. You’re way ahead of schedule.

And I can say you’re doing badly, because I’m a columnist, and you’re not. Say hello to everybody, O.K.?

Rockville School Superintendent Says Parents’ Response to Alleged Rape Is ‘Racist’

“Far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails”

Fethullah Gulen, The Hand That Rocks America’s Charter School Cradle

 NEWSWITHVIEWS

“You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers … until the conditions are ripe, they [the followers] must continue like this … The time is not yet right. You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe.” —Fethullah Gülen June 1999

LTG Michael T. Flynn, our former NSA Chief, hoped to rid the country of Fethullah Gulen, and for good reason, the protection of American citizenry and especially of our children.

Fethullah Gulen

So, who is Gulen?  Why are American tax dollars funding his charter schools with no school board oversight?  Why is he allowed to bring thousands of Turkish Muslims into America via H1-B Visas, promoted heavily by the likes of Senator Mike Lee and others in Congress?  Why are his charter schools on our Air Force bases? And what is the connection of Gulen to the CIA?

The leader of the Gulen Charter schools has been hiding in the Pocono Mountains since 1999. The CIA will tell you he came here for “health reasons” but in truth he ran from his government and went into exile when he was accused of attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular regime in order to institute an Islamic state. He obtained his long time visa with the help of former CIA officials.

Sibel Edmonds explains how Gulen was brought into the United States during the Clinton Administration, and how Bill Clinton’s White House, the State Department and the Justice Department’s Janet Reno provided the infamous mullah and his terrorism-heroin operations with blanket immunity and protection.  Clinton’s hand-picked handlers, Graham Fuller and Mark Grossman, were selected to manage and direct Gulen’s cells in the U.S. and abroad.  Link

Gülen is a Turkish imam who started a worldwide network of charter schools to teach the principles of Islam. His massive wealth is estimated to be between $22-50 billion.  In building a sophisticated and well-funded worldwide network, including a substantial presence here in America, Gulen is following in the footsteps and exhortations of Mohammed, who counseled patience and deception (Taqiyya) as a means of overcoming the infidel when the power of the infidel was greater than the power of the umma, (the Muslim community).  This is called “Civilization Jihad,” and is more sinister and dangerous than the frontal assault strategy of al Qaeda and Hamas.

However, Fethullah Gulen, has also made radical remarks encouraging Muslims to destroy “infidels.”  His call for taking violent action against non-Muslims can be traced to the voice recording of a sermon which he preached in the 1980s.

Our Taxes Fund Gulen Charters

Gulen is educating more than 35,000 students in nearly 200 publicly funded schools, and makes up the largest charter school network in the United States. They promote an Islamic agenda, but receive government money, unlike other religious schools in the United States. These are the schools that are part of what is called Fethullah Gülen Community (FGC), also known as “the Gülen Movement.”

The U.S. Gülen schools receive public, state, and federal funds, but there is no oversight by the local school board. The Gulen charters are the 2nd largest charter chain in the US, second only to the rotten KIPP charters. The Gulen charters have been raided by the FBI many times.  American news organizations have done little to inform the public about the Gülen Movement, its schools, or any deeper significance or associated controversies. To date, only one news story has been produced by the mainstream press, USA Today’s, “Objectives of charter schools with Turkish connections questioned,” and it is rather weak.

Here is a list of Gulen charter schools, albeit it is from last year, but notice the variety of names for these charters.  The innocuous names like Chicago Math and Science Academy and Pioneer Charter School of Science, don’t inform the community that they’re run by an Islamic Mullah.

Gulen and H1B Visas

Gülen schools are among the nation’s largest users of the H1B visas. In 2009, the schools received government approvals for 684 visas – more than Google Inc. (440) but fewer than a technology powerhouse such as Intel Corp. (1,203), reported the Philadelphia Inquirer.  However, they may be facing harder times in the future.

Over the past 10 years, the schools have imported thousands of Turkish educators to work in the schools, most of them with ties to Gülen, who lives in a small Pennsylvania town called Saylorsburg.  The charters receive approximately $150 million a year in tax breaks and subsidies.  Government officials are increasingly concerned that taxpayer dollars are being used to fund a close-knit network of Turkish teachers and businesses using charter schools as a Trojan horse for embedding into the U.S. education system.

These so-called Turkish teachers who speak very little English and who have no teaching experience, come to America and teach for a bit and then disappear into American society.  It is inconceivable that our visa officers have approved thousands of visas for English teachers whose English is incomprehensible.  There are over 5,000 Turkish employees on H1B Visas.  And, unbelievably, the Gülen organization illegally threatens to revoke these visas unless the Turkish teachers agree to kick back part of their salary to the organization.

Gulen Charters on US Air Force Bases

Countries all over the world are forcing Gulen schools out because of his statements and ideology, but Americans are allowing his Islamic schools on our Air Force bases.  One has to wonder why.  Is it because these bases contain our fighter jets?

General Flynn said, “We are facing another ‘ism,’ just like we faced Nazism, and fascism, and imperialism and communism. This is Islamism, it is a vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people on this planet and it has to be excised.”

Lawyer Robert R. Amsterdam, founder of international law firm, Amsterdam and Partners LLP, has been engaged by the Republic of Turkey (Erdogan)…to conduct a wide ranging investigation into the operations and geopolitical influence of the Gülen organization, which is behind the Coral Academy of Science and over 140 other public charter schools scattered across 26 American states.”

The Coral Academy of Science in Las Vegas has a Gulen charter on the Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas. Amsterdam says his firm’s investigation revealed that the Gülen organization “uses charter schools and affiliated businesses in the U.S. to misappropriate and launder state and federal education dollars, which the organization then uses for its own benefit to develop political power in this country and globally.”

Nellis AFB is a US military installation with military schools and more squadrons than any other USAF base, and hosts air combat exercises such as Exercise Red Flag and close air support exercises such as Green Flag-West flown in “Military Operations Area (MOA) airspace.” They are associated with the nearby Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR). The base also has the Combined Air and Space Operations Center-Nellis.  One wonders if this is why the Gulen charter is located there.

Coral Academy successfully opened a school on Davis-Monthan AFB in 2009, and it tried but failed to gain access to Marine Corps Base Hawaii and Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois.  In California, Magnolia Public Schools applied for a charter in Oceanside, where Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is located, although it temporarily withdrew its application after Amsterdam’s law firm pointed out Magnolia’s connection to the Gülen organization.

Robert Amsterdam asks, “In light of Gülen’s modus operandi elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security should be asking itself why such a non-transparent, religion-based organization would seek to establish itself on our military bases, teaching the children of our service men and women.”  This is the same thing General Michael Flynn was asking!

Seems the Gulen schools do not follow the law either.  The charter on Nellis AFB did not have a school nurse on site when a child broke her elbow at recess and was sent back to her classroom for the rest of the day.  Now they are claiming there is a nurse on staff.  Link

The CIA and Gulen

The plot to overthrow the current government of Turkey by the CIA was first started in 2008 by the US military-intelligence establishment supported think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) (please check the link), whose board members are a “who’s who” of American military connected individuals, pharmaceutical companies, CFR members, and Socialist Democrats.  Their research papers advocated the United States creating what they call a “moderate Muslim” majority in the Middle East to battle Islamic extremists and whose target nation for this action was Turkey.  And Gulen was right there ready to help them.  So, is Gulen working for the CIA?

Graham Fuller, the former CIA Station Chief in Istanbul, and former handler of Fethullah Gülen, is allegedly one of the top American experts on Turkey and the Middle East. As a former CIA agent, he endorsed Gülen not only to enter the US, but to take up residence in the Pocono Mountains, and to then start over 100 charter schools.  All the while, Gulen collects our tax dollars and indoctrinates our children.

The Turkish media reported that none other than Gülen mentor, “former” CIA man Graham E. Fuller, along with another “former” CIA person and close Fuller associate, were some 20 minutes from Istanbul the night the of failed July 15, 2016 coup attempt which would have replaced President Erdogan with Gulen.  Fuller claims to have retired from the agency years ago, when he went over to the CIA-tied RAND Corporation.  An article by F. William Engdahl details Fuller’s long involvement with Gulen as well as his links to the two Chechyn brothers accused of the Boston Marathon bombing.  It has been reported that the coup plotters intended to whisk Fuller to Greece.

Conclusion

General Michael T. Flynn’s history in military intelligence, his knowledge of Islam, and the Gulen/CIA infiltration into America’s charter schools may well have put him at odds with intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council.  It is my belief that this could have added to the impetus to eliminate the General from the Trump administration, not only by embedded Obama appointees, but also by some of the globalist players surrounding our new president.

Losing General Flynn was a great loss to the Trump administration and to all American citizens.

Trump & InfoWars Accused of Espionage

CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOSTON LGBTQ DEMANDED!

by Rev. Austin Miles

BOSTON 3/25/17—Extortion is a felony that must be punished. Extortion means demanding an act to be performed, such as paying a ransom under threat of violence, and in this case, death.

One surrenders to the demand by an act, money, or property to prevent a threatened act of violence, or murder. An example is the old Mafia Protection racket where a store pays big sums to “protect” them from violence to their property.

Extortion results in jail time and other penalties. It is an attack on all civilization for personal gain, either monetarily or ideologically. Extortion is a serious legal offense. It is time for this law to be utilized and action taken whenever these threats arrive. So why does this statute not apply to sodomites when it is the law for everyone else? The laws DO apply to the LGBTQ crowd as it does to the rest of us.

Boston has already had a taste of this by the Muslim attacks on those attending the Boston Marathon. They planted bombs to go off in the crowd, killing and maiming spectators. This was a form of extortion. Either all become Muslims, or all will be brutally killed. That threat still stands. But the feeble minded dem-wits insist upon letting them all in our country so they can commit jihad from the inside.

The LGBTQ misfits threatened Boston with similar violence, destruction of property, overall chaos and death if they were not allowed to march in the recent St. Patrick’s Day Parade which honors a Catholic Saint. Plus they demanded that they be able to carry their rainbow flags signifying sexual preferences in that parade which is offensive to God Himself. Indeed, this is blasphemy.

Why should these degenerates, who do not believe in God, the Bible or the church be allowed to march in a Christian parade? This parade is to honor a saint, not to honor the filthiest of all perversions. For example, “gays” smear their poop over each other’s bodies, then lick it off. This is called, “scatting.” Sorry, I hate to even acknowledge this, but it is reality….a reality that they demand for all of us to accept.

First of all, considering the seriousness of the crime of extortion, arrests should have taken place immediately when the officials were threatened with deadly violence if they were excluded from that parade.  But no, instead of rightfully filing criminal charges, the authorities decided to simply discuss it. Instead of pushing back they caved in.

According to LifeSiteNews,  Boston Police said homosexuals would be bused in from other states to “disrupt” the festivities posing serious threats unless Catholic organizers permitted a gay veterans group in the parade, yes vets carrying rainbow flags. That is not the army this columnist served in.

Police determined that the gay threats were “credible” but warned that they would not guarantee the safety of the public, including children, if they were not invited to take part. It was also implied that organizers would be responsible if gay violence erupted.  Extortion 101. Arrests should have instantly been made. But everyone simply sat quietly.

Faced with the threat of “large-scale gay violence,” the Allied War Veterans Council chief parade organizer Tim Duross allowed the homosexual group OutVets to march. Yep, waved the white flag of surrender to the lavender mafia. The media celebrated the decision as a “victory against bigotry.” No surprise there.

The threats of gay violence came after political and financial pressure had failed to coerce parade organizers. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, Senator Edward Markey, and other politicians said they wouldn’t participate if OutVets (which applied late to participate which would disqualify anyone else) weren’t allowed to march. Corporate sponsors, including Budweiser, threatened to pull financial backing as well. Have these people taken leave of their senses?

Why on earth would the public be so supportive of a clearly dangerous, psychopathic group of people who are affixed on anal sex and human waste? This is sick. Yet, otherwise sane citizens, are going along with it. And have you ever seen a person dying of AIDS?  This can be the fate of those encouraged by indifference toward their lifestyle. The parade did take place last Sunday without incident, since the LGBTQ demand was met.

Criminal Offense to Disrupt Religious Service

There is another law on the books stating that it is a crime to disrupt a religious service….that means church services, where freaky looking gays in gaudy costumes and clown-like makeup stormed a church in San Francisco demanding they be served Holy Communion.

Other churches around the country including St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City was in the middle of Mass when sodomites stormed the church during the service and threw condoms on the parishioners. Even assault could have been charged here as well as the criminal act of disrupting a religious service.  But nobody did a thing. They just sat there.

This can all be stopped in its tracks by simply advising these hoodlums of this law from the platform, then pulling out a cell phone and calling the police. Once during a funeral service, a drunk came down the aisle with a beer bottle in his hand and began yelling at everyone there using the “F”word. He was informed that what he was doing was a criminal offense and I was about to call the police.  He turned and bolted out. HOWEVER, he was later arrested during the reception at a union hall for the same reason and was put in jail.

Simply report disruption of a religious service and they will refer to laws including ‘crimes against the public peace (Massachusetts chapter 269) as well as “Public Offenses.” Whenever these anarchists try to storm your church, call the police immediately.  To do nothing is to encourage and strengthen them in their quest to be in total control of everything, including the churches.

It is time to show strength and push back. Remember, this is all at the behest of the devil himself and Christians should never hesitate to take the authority given us by God Himself to send him and his minions fleeing. But whatever you do, don’t just sit there obediently. Do something! This has got to stop. It is up to us.

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY

THE LEFT’S ATTEMPTED SABOTAGE AND DESTRUCTION OF AG SESSIONS

NewsWithViews.com

Protect me from the plots of the wicked, from mobs of evil men. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like arrows. They are quick to spread their shameless lies; they destroy good men with cowardly slander. —Psalm 64:2-4

Fake News, Fake News, Fake News!

AG Sessions is the latest to be under attack for speaking to the Ambassador from Russia. The former Alabama Senator should never have recused himself from the investigation of the phony Russian connection to the election. Neither should Sessions have recused himself during the confirmation hearings of a future investigation into Bill and Hillary Clinton’s affairs. With all the squawking by the democratic socialists, the liberal media, and the Soros/Obama organizers, they’ve latched onto this phony Russian involvement in the election story and are pumping it for all it’s worth.

The media’s lies are that Putin loves Trump, Trump loves Putin, and they got together to make sure Trump won the election via Russian interference…all lies. Again, media is allowed to lie with impunity because of the 1964 Supreme Court decision, NYTs v. Sullivan.

The entire Trump administration simply must not cave to any of this, and they need to completely ignore these rabble rousers. The first to fall was, of course, the brilliant and knowledgeable General Michael Flynn, a loss to this administration that will never be replaced with anyone as capable or experienced as Flynn. I really believe this was President Trump’s first and worst mistake. Letting the talented Flynn resign instead of fighting the media lies was a big mistake. He should have told both Pence and Flynn to ride it out and get back to work. Flynn’s replacement, General McMaster, is nothing but a CFR globalist clone.

AG Jeff Sessions is probably the finest Christian man we’ve had in politics for decades. Not only was he re-elected four times by Alabamians, but he was beloved by the citizenry, and that includes all races. He has spent five decades as a champion of civil rights.

There is no way the media or any investigation can prove that Trump or any of his administration have worked with the Russians to win the election. Now that AG Sessions has recused himself, an Obama lackey is in charge of the investigation into these false allegations, and that leads us to the real Trojan Horse.

The Internal Trojan Horse

There are many Obama appointee holdovers on the National Security Council affecting our military operations. There are a handful of Obama appointee holdovers at the CIA who were groomed to oppose President Trump by John Brennan and Mike Morell, both of whom repeatedly lied about Benghazi.

There are Obama holdovers in NSA, DHS, EPA, and the FBI, including some members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, ISNA, MAS, etc., who are opposing President Trump. The nine personnel who criminally released the content of General Mike Flynn’s telephone conversations with the Russian Ambassador to the press were Obama holdovers…another reason Trump should have told them to go pound sand and kept General Flynn. Think I’m angry about it, you dang well bet I am…and my arrows all point to VP Pence. Flynn should definitely still be in the administration! The loss was catastrophic for the nation.

Socialist Democrats Lie Again

Democrats were aghast after learning Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice, as a senator, before his confirmation as an AG, with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. without telling Congress at his confirmation hearing – but it turns out Sergey Kislyak is no stranger to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The Russian Ambassador was seated with the democrats at the Joint Sessions of Congress meeting the other night. He is a good friend of…here it comes, Chuckie Schumer! And guess who else he’s met and enjoyed…a picture is worth a thousand words.

Funny thing too, Senator Nancy Pelosi claimed she’d never met with this Russian Ambassador, but in fact, she had, and she met with other high level Russian dignitaries. [Link]

Then you have Senator Clair McCaskill claiming she never met with the Russian Ambassador, but she apparently forgot about her tweets in January of 2013 where she stated she, along with several other democrats, was off to meet with him. [Link]

During Obama’s reign, the longtime Russian ambassador met with seven Democratic senators in a single sit-down in 2013. Ambassador Sergey Kisylak appeared at the Obama White House at least 22 times…running a silent coup on Trump.

As House Speaker Paul Ryan put it last week, “We meet with ambassadors all the time.”

Sessions Rejects Democrat Claims

The central issue dogging Sessions is not so much that he met with the ambassador, but that he claimed during his confirmation hearing he had no “communications” with Russian officials during his time as a Trump campaign surrogate. In a press conference, though, Sessions rejected claims he misled Congress and suggested he was answering in the context of campaign-related discussions, which he maintains he never had.

But some Sessions critics nevertheless portrayed meetings with Kislyak, whose country was accused of meddling in the 2016 campaign, as a rare summit, particularly for a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee like Sessions.

And no, Jeff Sessions didn’t perjure himself. It’s not even a close call. All of this is bunk, or as Limbaugh calls it, Barbara Streisand (B.S.).

Democrat Involvement with Russia

The Russian link to Obama is the real investigation. When Obama said to Russian Prime Minister, Medvedev, “You tell Vladimir, I’ll have much more flexibility after the election,” about reducing America’s nuclear stockpile, anyone with a brain knew what was going on. The question arises again, what party is in bed with the Russians? Sessions is certainly not alone. The democrats love Russian dignitaries is an open book.

Let’s look at history, because it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984. While Senator Al Franken and other Democrats have the vapors over a truthful, complete, and correct answer AG Jeff Sessions gave in his confirmation hearing, it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984.

This behavior didn’t involve launching a vehicle into a tidal channel while drunk. (The Bridge at Chappaquiddick by Jack Olsen) This reprehensible behavior was collusion with America’s most deadly enemy in an effort to defeat Ronald Reagan’s reelection.

The memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy (P.J. Media):

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, (Kennedy) will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Among the promises, Kennedy made the Soviets was that he would ensure that the television networks gave the Soviet leader primetime slots to speak directly to the American people, thus undermining Reagan’s framing of the sinister nature of the USSR. Even then, the Democrats had the power to collude with the legacy media. Kennedy also promised to help Andropov penetrate the American message with his Soviet agitprop.

Exactly right! Even 30 years ago, Democrat senators were colluding with America’s enemies to bring down Republicans.

Limbaugh has said the real scandal is that a “silent coup” is underway against President Trump. “There is the execution of an attempt at a peaceful coup,” said the radio talk show host last week. “A peaceful coup to oust Donald Trump is what we are witnessing. It’s been orchestrated by Obama and the Democrat Party. It’s that simple.”

Obama Collusion with Russia

The real collusion between our government and the Russians happened with Barack Hussein Obama. How far back do you have to go to find where Trump and Putin were allegedly buddies…I’ll tell you. It went all the way back to when Trump made a joke about Russia finding Hillary Clinton’s lost emails…the left grabbed onto it as though Trump was aligned with Russia. [Link] Anyone with a brain knew he was making a joke!

Remember when Clinton and Loretta Lynch met for a half hour on the plane before the AG was going to look into charging Hillary Clinton? And Schumer is calling for Sessions’ resignation, for colluding with Russians, but according to Schumer it was okay for Clinton and Loretta Lynch to meet, with the story they were talking about their grandchildren. Right…we all really believe that! These are two-faced hypocrites, and everyone knows it.

The Russian Ambassador is at the core of this entire false narrative promoted by the Democratic socialists and their leftist owned media. Sergey Kisylak has lamented that Washington, D.C. “has become lonely.” He has told associates that, “he is surprised how people who once sought his company were now trying to stay away.”

Remember that Kisylak was a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, according to the Daily Caller. Kisylak has always been a staunch defender of Russia and has at times attempted to undermine America’s foreign policy. [Link]

Kisylak’s alliance with the left is far greater than it was ever established with the right, but the left wants to destroy Trump with their claim that Trump and Russia colluded to win the election and steal it from Hillary Clinton. And there’s no evidence for this. They haven’t found any evidence, because there isn’t any and that’s because it couldn’t have happened!

Conclusion

Before he left office, Obama elevated insiders to political positions where they could not be fired. This was done in order to work from the inside to destroy Trump. The President needs to find a way to get rid of them. They’ve already done a great deal of damage, and now we’re hearing about massive wiretapping and spying on the new president and his administration.

At this point, Trump is probably eating his words. On November 11, 2016, he called Obama a “very good man,” and said he would seek his counsel in the future.

SEDITION, ESPIONAGE AND WIRETAPPING OF PRESIDENT TRUMP


NewsWithViews.com

Obama and Hillary surrogates put forth a false narrative of Russian collusion, but had no evidence to support the allegation. It appears that on a second attempt, the Obama Administration got a FISA court order to monitor communications of the Trump campaign, treasure hunting for evidence to support the false narrative and apparently, there is none. Now a backfire has put the Obama gang and their media lapdogs on the defensive. —J.D. Pendry

Wouldn’t it be nice to see the lying Socialist-loving media actually on the defensive and in a meltdown? What’s funny is they’ve actually put a bit of truth out in the past, and now they’re having to eat their own words. The NYTs asked Sean Spicer if there was proof of Obama’s wiretapping, and Sean said, “No,” but the NYTs itself printed the story on January 19, 2017.

Hopefully, our new AG go full bore after the former administration and their alleged illegal wiretapping!

Attorney General Sessions has not recused himself from an investigation into the latest wiretapping allegation and that just thrills me. Trump has turned the tables on the left and their phony Russian election collusion stories.

The Gateway Pundit supplied an entire list of those the Obama administration had wiretapped. However, Obama is denying he ever spied on Trump or his administration. Yet, he has his handler, communist-bred Valerie Jarrett, in his rented townhouse, only blocks from the White House, to lead the charge to topple the peoples’ choice for President. Jarrett, from within the White House may have launched a Watergate style attack on Trump during the election, and is now continuing her attack.

Levin Calls for Congressional Investigation

Even former NeverTrumper and pro-Constitutional Convention talk show host, Mark Levin, has said, “The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweet, it is about the Obama administration’s spying. The question isn’t whether it spied, we know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is, who did they spy on, and the extent of the spying. That is, the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates, and the American people.”

Levin called Obama’s efforts, “police state” tactics, and suggested that Obama’s actions should be the target of a congressional investigation. He also stated that the theories about Russian interference in the presidential election were nothing more than conspiracy theories. Here’s the entire interview.

The Timeline

The first Obama FISA request came in June of 2016. In July, Trump made a joke about Hillary’s missing emails saying that maybe Russia can find them. This was the catalyst for the Socialist media to glom onto the fabrication that Russia hacked the election for Trump’s win.

In October, the Podesta emails kept flowing out from WikiLeaks, and new scandals were in the news daily. Of course, the Clinton campaign blamed Trump and the Russians, spewing the allegation that the Russians hacked the Democrat emails. The truth of the matter is Podesta’s emails were obtained because he fell for a phishing scam.

When Julian Assange was interviewed in London by Sean Hannity, he clearly stated that Russia was not responsible for the hacking of the DNC. He has no reason to lie. We have just seen that the CIA department has possession of Russia hacking malware that can be used to make it appear that Russia’s fingerprints were on the DNC hacks. The CIA was possibly the source of the “hacks” during the election cycle. They didn’t give information to WikiLeaks, because Assange said that the source came from within the DNC, but these hacks were essentially made for no reason other than to provide a cover story that Russian hacking helped Trump win the election.

In October, the second FISA request was made by Obama, focusing on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. Again, no evidence whatsoever is found, but they continued their spying, ostensibly for national security reasons.

These are police state tactics where the standing administration is actually monitoring an opposing presidential campaign with surveillance by the federal government. There should be media outrage, but the media is part of the problem.

In January of 2017, John McCain got into the act and turned over to the FBI the phony Buzzfeed intel “dossier” compiled by a foreign spy. All of this was false, and nothing could be verified; the info had been floating around DC for months and ignored.

In early January, Obama decided to expand the NSA sharing and to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intel agencies before applying privacy protections. Totally unheard of and dangerous, these reduced protections made it easier for intel on private citizens to be leaked or circulated.

Even worse is the NYT’s report on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies, FBI, CIA, NSA, and the Treasury Department are all monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Yes, multi-agencies were working on this false story to destroy the peoples’ new president and his administration.

In February, the irreplaceable, NSA Chief, General Michael Flynn, fell prey to the lies of the FBI transcripts. Obama’s Sally Yates, acting AG, is fired for insubordination. The General, the finest appointee besides Sessions in Trump’s administration, ends up resigning over allegedly misleading VP Pence, most likely inadvertently, about the content of this normal conversation with the Russian Ambassador.

My own belief is that globalist VP Pence wanted to be rid of the General. While in Germany days after Flynn’s resignation, Pence mentioned needlessly that Flynn was gone because of a “lack of trust.” Spicer had uttered the same words. I believe Pence is the core of why the General, who was a loyalist from the beginning, is gone.

Jeff Kredo is reporting that, “The CIA and Departments of Justice and Treasury are being sued by Judicial Watch for their role in leaking highly classified material as part of an effort to undermine the credibility of former Trump administration NSA Chief Michael Flynn, according to a recent announcement.”

Back to the timeline…later in February, the NYTs cited four current and former American officials in the Trump campaign who had “repeated contacts with Russian intel officials. Of course, it’s been denied by the Trump administration, and then the NYTs admitted there was no evidence of any collusion between the campaign and the Russians. Finally, the administration is raising questions about illegal intel leaks.

In March, the Bezos owned Washington Post reported that AG Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign, once at the Heritage Foundation, and once at a meeting in Sessions’ Senate office.

My previous article exposed just how many times the top Democratic Socialists have also met with the Russian ambassador as well as President Putin.

The Back Story

NSA Admiral Mike Rogers visited Trump Tower just 10 days after the election, and right after another Mike Rogers – the former House intelligence Chairman who retired after lying about the Benghazi fiasco – was kicked off the Trump transition team on intelligence. No one could figure out why he was kicked out. However, if you’ve read the Benghazi Brief you know how damaged, corrupted and untrustworthy Chairman Mike Rogers was – and he previously sat on the oversight gang of eight.

It appears that NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers didn’t want to participate in the spying scheme (Clapper, Brennan, etc.), of President Obama’s post presidency efforts to undermine Donald Trump. It could be that NSA Rogers didn’t want to visit Trump Tower until Chairman Rogers was gone.

The end result was Admiral Rogers was fired.

Andrew McCarthy Sums It Up

Former prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy summarized the story in William F. Buckley’s NeverTrump National Review.

McCarthy tells that Obama and his minions wanted criminal investigations of Trump’s top people, yet there was nothing criminal to find. Surprise, Surprise! So what they did next was convert the investigation into an intel probe under FISA (The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act). Parts of this story have been confirmed by the BBC, NYTs, and the McClatchy papers.

Normally a FISA surveillance is allowed by the court whenever the feds ask to spy on certain people, but not this time. The court refused permission to spy on Trump’s people according to the BBC. McCarthy commented that this is notable because, “the FISA court is notoriously solicitous of government requests to conduct national security surveillance.”

Not liking the refusals, the Obama administration came back during the final weeks of the campaign with a third request that didn’t specifically mention Trump. Then the request was granted by the court, BUT…reports from the Guardian and BBC don’t mention tapping of phones.

Of course, there have been denials by the Obama administration, which McCarthy calls “disingenuous on several levels.” Others have characterized them as a “non-denial denial.”

The Deep-Police-State

Newt Gingrich made the observation, “To think this happened to be done by some bureaucrats with no supervision, when you know, for example, that Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, spent an hour in secret with Bill Clinton just before they dropped charges against his wife. I mean all of this stuff smells to high heaven despite the best efforts of the elite media to cover it up.” He said, “These Obama wiretaps of our President are very serious, and very dangerous to our liberties.”

The very first FISA request on Trump Tower came after Bill Clinton, and Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch, had their private meeting on the plane. [Link]

Gingrich made it clear that Schumer is trying to derail this presidency by keeping Obama appointees in power. Schumer knows that Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity and character above reproach, but he attacks the finest in Trump’s administration.

FBI Director Comey

According to the NYTs, “The FBI director reportedly made the verbal request, to the Justice Department to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that Obama ordered the tapping of Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. They said Mr. Comey argued that the highly-charged claim is false and must be corrected, but the department has not released any such statement.”

Director Comey allegedly said, and it’s only supported by anonymous sources, for the DOJ to refute the President’s allegations, because, “it falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law.”

So, it’s okay with the FBI to falsely insinuate that the President broke the law, but nobody had better make that same claim about them. Fake news? Maybe. We’re still wondering why Comey was retained.

Obama’s Community Organizers

Donald Trump’s latest tweets sent arrows into the MSM and Obama’s Organizing for America (OFA).

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA is an army of agitators 30,000 strong who will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency, and the ex-president “will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.” Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of leftist nonprofits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (currently more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA’s IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their foundation office near the White House.

Obama has moved some of his top players into the OFA. He has even moved his co-president and handler, Valerie Jarrett, into his rented home.

Conclusion

Here’s the meat of this whole filthy deep-state spying sedition…the story is not the Trump campaign. The story is not the Russians hacked the election. The story is not the Trump campaign was working with the Russians. The story is the effort by Barack Hussein Obama — and the Democrat Party, and the New York Times, and Washington Post, and Politico — to sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency, and Monica Crowley knows this all too personally.

Crowley was set to be the senior director of communications at the National Security Council before a hit job by CNN destroyed her. She was recently interviewed by Sean Hannity (see the vidio below) and said the following:

Look, what happened to me was a despicable straight up political hit job. There is a very toxic and increasingly poisonous atmosphere of personal destruction in DC and the media. It’s always been there, but now it’s on a whole different level.

The attack on me was a test. What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what is happening to AG Sessions and others, is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign under way against this President, his administration, and his agenda. What I hope the President and his senior aides understand is that these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him, they want to personally destroy him, destroy his presidency, and they would like to see the man in prison.

They are out for blood, and the reason they must destroy him is because Donald Trump is an alien organism that has been injected into the body politic by the American people to reform it. He must not be allowed to succeed. They want him and his people rejected from the system, just like any alien organism. He must not be allowed to succeed, and I hope everyone around him understands that this is a war, and they will not end until they destroy the President of the United States.

David Brock and other organizations have already raised tens of millions of dollars for an impeachment process. They want “jail to the chief.” We are so far beyond normal politics. We are in a very dangerous moment. While President Trump is a very strong leader and a man of strong constitution, and he was able to survive all of this during the campaign and get elected president, I hope to God he is strong enough to withstand the monolithic opposition, a federal bureaucracy that is completely out to undermine him every day, and the intelligence community that is engaged in this as well.

If Trump succeeds, the country changes for the good, and the globalists do not want that to happen.

Please pray continually for our President, his administration, and our country.
