What Does a Coup Look Like?

Why the Media has it wrong.

 

I had to write this follow-up to what I wrote in February in my post  “Who Is Carter Page”.   I have no doubt that almost everybody that read that research thought I was crazy claiming a coup was going on and treason was being committed. Still, today, few pundits have analyzed the true nature of what is and has been going on. I have been studying politics and government for a long time.

I like to think I have a special insight as to how it all works. It hasn’t always been like this but the Intelligence Community (IC) has gained huge power due to its use of technology and laws designed to provide more power, such as the Patriot Act and the FISA Court. But anybody that has a brain knows that great power can be misused and often is. You see, there is no benevolence in Washington….only arrogance! Let me be clear, here. This arrogance is not necessarily a corrupt use of that power. It is a self-aggrandizing activity that makes them think that they have all the answers and are charged with keeping America the most powerful country in the world. It has led to a certain status quo and policies that serve that status quo. Any disruption in that status quo is viewed as a threat to our stature in the world and their supremacy as guardians of that supremacy. That said, there is an awful lot of corruption connected to the Intelligence community which provides the tools, policies and money needed to guard their secrets and carry out their clandestine operations.

spy vs spy 2

Now, I want to get to the meat of it. Since I wrote that article in February, I must have read 200 articles and stories explaining the Mueller investigation and how it is being conducted. Lately, we have been reading about a “spy” in the campaign. Pundit after pundit, continuing to miss exactly what was, and is being done. Let me be very specific about what I already know:

In March of 2016, Trump had won the Florida primary and looked like he was on his way to the nomination. The DNC and even many NeverTrump republicans were, by now, setting their sights on Trump to make certain Hillary would win. But something went wrong. I have documented throughout my writings that the Clintons, their foundation and the Intelligence Community are all integrally connected. The Foundation is used to bring in foreign money that can be used by the CIA for “off the books” operations. This relationship was now turned against Trump. In that same month a man named

stefan halper
Stefan Halper

Stefan Halper entered the campaign….not as an operative….but as part of a plan to ensure Trump’s failure, just in case Hillary couldn’t do it herself. During the spring and early summer of 2016, Halper had several meetings with Carter Page and several other Trump campaign officials. The media have been reporting that Halper was trying to hook up with the campaign, that he was assigned to investigate Russian collusion. But let’s be clear, this is NOT what he was doing, rather he was implementing a plan to CREATE evidence of Russian collusion between Russians and Trump. I must make this point perfectly clear…..Halper’s assignment was not to disrupt a campaign, it was actually to create evidence of a crime. Let me restate that in another way, because it’s ultimately the essence between an investigation and treason: We are being told by the Intelligence Community that they believed that Russia had infiltrated the Trump campaign and were trying to help Trump win the presidency, even though there was no evidence at the time or since, that this was occurring. So let’s take a look at just who this Stefan Halper is. He has a long career, going back to the Nixon White House. He served as assistant chief of staff for the Chiefs of staff, Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney, but more important to this story was his involvement in a CIA operation to provide information to the Carter Administration on the Reagan campaign. Let’s understand this so-called “debategate”, as it was dubbed. By all outward appearances he was a republican operative….running an undercover operation against Reagan, for the democrats. Sound familiar? Looking at Halper’s long history and background in government, one cannot miss the connections he has to the Intelligence Community. Before I move on, allow me to ask some obvious questions being asked by conservative media. Why didn’t the IC just inform the Trump campaign that they suspected Russian involvement? We were also told that Russia was responsible for the Hillary and Podesta e-mail hacks and exposure. Why didn’t they investigate the Hillary campaign? And why did it all start as Trump became the nominee? Remember these questions, because the answers will be the defining element of why this wasn’t an investigation into Russian collusion, but an operation to connect Trump to the Russians and turn Americans against him.

 

 

Let’s turn to Carter Page.

Carter Page
Carter Page

 

Every pundit and writer in the media has assumed Carter Page was an innocent campaign operative, being surveilled and investigated as a Russian operative. Every time I hear it, I cringe. Page was not a target, he was working with and for Halper as an operative to create the evidence required to connect the campaign to the Russians. Only the simple-minded and the uninformed can see Page as anything but an intelligence operative. His background couldn’t be more clear……A graduate of Georgetown University in national security studies…..(Georgetown is where they train spooks) Served in the Navy, his last year and half, in Naval intelligence. As if that isn’t enough…he goes from the Navy to an investment banking job in Moscow. Here he meets a lot of Russians, and immediately voices his support of Russia and the Putin regime. He is very outspoken in his views on American foreign policy toward Russia. Wilkipedia even goes so far to say he was “recruited” by Russian spies. However court documents actually show Page was working for the FBI at the time (2013) to catch those spies. Read my piece, linked above, for more information on Carter Page’s background.

 

In research, timing and timelines are extremely important in understanding the big picture. Page joins the campaign, not before meeting with Halper but after. When you review and analyze Page’s actions while in the campaign, it really looks like he is a Russian operative. It is so transparent, that anyone could see that Page had obvious connections to the Russians and warranted “surveillance and investigation”. Page’s activities start in July, shortly after meeting with Halper. A question I asked in “Who Is Carter Page” was who put Page on the list of possible advisors? I now think I have the answer. It seems that even before Halper got involved another deep state veteran was injected into the Trump campaign.

richard burt
Richard Burt

Richard Burt, a former ambassador to Germany and the chief negotiator for George Bush Sr. during the START treaty negotiations. (Don’t forget Bush Sr. was CIA chief before he was president.) He latched on to the campaign as a foreign policy advisor to Jeff Sessions, and again, had connections inside Russia, in particular, Burt sat on an advisory council to Alfa Bank, Russia’s state owned financial institution. Burt, likely brought Page on board. This is an excerpt from a Politico story:

 

There were whispers all over Washington that, despite Hicks’s denial, Page was not only still part of the Trump campaign, but its conduit for Russian influence. Was he? One way to answer the question was to figure out how he even got on that list to begin with. One source suggested to me that Richard Burt, former U.S. ambassador to Germany, START treaty negotiator, and longtime lobbyist for Alfa Bank, was the nexus. It was Burt who helped draft Trump’s foreign policy speech in April, and had been advising the Trump campaign, via Senator Jeff Sessions, on foreign policy.

One other tidbit you can glean from that excerpt is Trump’s foreign policy speech he gave in April of 2016. In that speech he said this:

We should seek common ground based on shared interests. Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism. I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia – from a position of strength – is possible. Common sense says this cycle of hostility must end. Some say the Russians won’t be reasonable. I intend to find out. If we can’t make a good deal for America, then we will quickly walk from the table.”

Couple this with the off-handed joke he made at the debate with Hillary about her e-mails, and you can see that Trump himself laid the groundwork for what would be the coming onslaught of Russia, Russia, Russia from the left. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2016/jul/27/donald-trump-russia-dnc-email-hack-video

Before I move on to the others, I must make sure you are seeing the picture I am painting: Trump is running for president. He begins to get traction, and is winning. Of all the candidates that are running, Trump is the only one that must not win. As he takes the lead, a plan is hatched by the deep state, status quo, globalists in the government to end Trump’s campaign. They recruit several operatives to plant the evidence to ruin Trump. These operatives are inserted into the campaign. First Burt, then Halper, then Page. All serve a specific purpose…..Burt, to recruit more operatives. Halper, to initiate the sowing of threads of collusion with Russia, and Page to actually create evidence by his overt actions.

 

Now…….I have to, again, ask you a question. Do you believe that these operatives, with well documented histories and credentials of being connected to the Intelligence community and the deep state, were actually government spies, investigating Russian collusion by the Trump campaign, or actually creating evidence to make the case that Trump was colluding with the Russians? But before you answer, let’s move on to the “others”.

When Halper began to try to “help” the Trump campaign, he contacted a campaign science advisor…..Sam Clovis. He asked in an e-mail if they could meet. They did a few days later. In that meeting, Halper never mentions anything about Russia, only China and his research of that country….being a “professor”. He does, however, mention casually that he met with Carter Page. Clovis wrote:

sam clovis
Sam Clovis

“This is just my speculation — I have no knowledge,” Clovis told me. “I think [Halper] was using his meeting with me to give him bona fides to talk to George Papadopoulos. He used Carter Page to get to me and he used me to get to George. George was the target. I think George was the target all along.”

 

 

What you need to see from these circumstances and accounts is that Page and Papadopolous were very different players in the story. While Papadopolous had no knowledge of who Halper was, Page seemed to know a lot about Halper and recommended him in a tweet:

Page has tweeted a line from an email he says he sent to the campaign on July 16, 2016, regarding Halper. Halper — Page referred to him as the professor — “offered a range of possibilities regarding how he and the University might be able to help,” You can read more about this here: Trump campaign vet: Informant used me to get to Papadopoulos

 

Then there is the widely spread story of George Papadopolous. On two occasions, once with Halper and once with a man named Josef Mifsud, Papadopolous was asked if he knew of the existence of the 30K Clinton deleted e-mails, and could the campaign use them? Mifsud, another “professor” reportedly working for British intelligence. He also asked Papadopolous if he knew of the Russian hacked Hillary deleted e-mails. Now, any normal liberal would say that this was normal investigative procedures….but was it? Remember timing! Shortly after these meetings, Papadopolous was introduced to Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat. At a bar, Papadopolous revealed to Downer that he had heard that the Russians had possession of the Hillary e-mails. The FBI has stated publically that this revelation by Papadopolous was what prompted the investigation. If that were the case, why did these deep state operatives plant this seed? If they already knew the Russians had been interfering in the election and the Trump campaign, why is it the FBI says this revelation by Papadopolous was what prompted the investigation? Why were they involved at all, before this revelation? You see, this wasn’t an investigation, this was a set-up of Papadopolous to create the appearance of a needed investigation to eventually spy on the campaign. While all this was going on, Page was creating a trail of crumbs, leading to a connection between the campaign and the Russians. That trail of crumbs was used by Steele, another “former” British spy and Russian expert, to create the infamous Trump Dossier, which surfaces for the first time in August of 2016, a month after Page’s trip to Moscow. I wrote about Pages’s moves in July in my post “Who is Carter Page-Update”: 

Shortly after accepting the position, he needs to go to Russia to give a speech, a commencement speech at a school of economics, in July. This is step 1. Going to Russia in the middle of a presidential campaign.

Step 2, is the lengths he went to, to get permission from the campaign to go, which, do to his lack of importance, wouldn’t need permission. He first asks J.D. Gordon, a retired Naval officer heading up foreign policy for the campaign. Gordon tells him it would be a bad idea. He then e-mails Corey Lewandowski and Hope Hicks, the number one and two people at the campaign. Neither person knows who he is. Hicks never responds, Lewandowski says he can do what he wants, but not to represent the campaign. What you need to see, is the trail he is creating….a trail to Russia. He has to link the trip with formal permission.

 The content of the speech is step 3. Remember, this is a commencement speech. But the speech is very critical of past US foreign policy, implying that Trump would change it. It focuses on his hope that a closer relationship between the two nations might be possible with Trump in the White House. From the speech: “Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption, and regime change,” Page also suggested the United States should ease economic sanctions imposed on Russia following its 2014 incursion into Ukraine and Crimea. Sanction removal would be a common thread in the charges by critics of Russian collusion by Trump. The point here is that he is in Moscow speaking with authority about foreign policy while being on the Trump campaign, but yet he has no authority or authorization to do so. How does that look?

Next…step 4….He is interviewed by the Russian news agency Novosti, where he will not answer what his plans are in Moscow and would only say that he will “meet with several business leaders and academics, before he leaves on Tuesday”. Implying importance, yet being seemingly secretive. But later interviews with Russian officials, they responded that they did not know Mr. Page and were unaware of any meetings that took place. So the impression was left that Page met with “high ranking” Russian officials and it was reported that way.

 And finally, step 5…upon his return he sends an e-mail to the campaign: “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” As if he has some vital information from people in Russia. But when interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, he said it came from the TV he watched while in Moscow. A clearly ridiculous answer all to make it look like he is covering up something. All the things I have outlined here are found in the Trump dossier, orchestrated to create proof that a tie between Trump and the Russians existed. The way to prove it is to find out if he was working for the FBI as he did in 2013.

 Moscow-Russia

 

One last thing to see here: The news media, even FOX, is telling us that these people were not spying on Trump or his campaign, but on Russia. The IC was investigating Russian influence on the election. What was the predicate for believing that? What prompted that investigation? Didn’t the Russians hack the DNC servers, the Podesta e-mails, and the Hillary private server? Why wouldn’t they be looking for Russian influence there? It just doesn’t add up. The only thing that makes sense is that this was a concerted effort to tie Trump to the Russians, spy on his campaign, conduct electronic surveillance, and plant evidence to have him removed from office. The key to this whole story is Carter Page. He is a spook living in plain sight. If someone can ascertain if Page works for the IC…then we have the answer to all the questions. But I’m afraid they don’t want us to have the answers.

To quote from the movie “Patriot Games”: The president is caught by loyal patriotic national security analyst, Jack Ryan, conducting illegal military operations in Columbia where a dozen US Marines are killed by a drug cartel. When Ryan confronts him…..he says: “Jack, the last thing the country needs is another scandal that goes all the way to the top. Oh…it will come out….a few will take the fall, but that’s where it will stop. A few slaps on the wrists. I’ll do the Potomac Two Step and that will be the end of it.”   Jack promptly says: “Mr. President….I don’t dance” Unfortunately, we don’t have anybody close to Jack Ryan in the government. So what this fictional president said, will be reality. Finally, if the dems win the House in 2018, this will all end quietly. Just one more reason why you must vote for the republican in November. This is the only way the pressure can be maintained on this corrupt and valueless Intelligence Community. If something doesn’t change, this over reach and abuse of power will only continue and get worse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perceptions of the Trump Train

I like to think of myself as an observer. I watch, I read, I remember. I put my observations into “the big picture” and try to explain to myself what I see.

I was a very early supporter of Trump. When he came on the scene, I had already spent years studying and researching government. I saw the push toward globalism as a mistake. I saw the stagnant economy being orchestrated by special interests. And I saw the destruction of the middle class being done purposely. No politician, in my mind, could change the course we were on. Then came Trump and his blunt talk about immigration and trade. The two things that globalism has harnessed to advance its agenda. Oh sure, there are others, but these are the two biggies.

trump 3

I studied every issue, researched dozens of polls, looked at all the candidates, and came to an awful conclusion, that I pound all the time, as you probably know: Corruption is at the heart of all of America’s ills. From domestic spending to foreign policy, corruption drives all of government. Call it what you will….politics, the Deep State, K-Street lobbyists, or special interests….its corrupt, its unaccountable, and it appears to be unrepairable. Then came Trump…..a brash, uncouth braggart that claimed he could Make America Great Again. When I saw the reaction to Trump from so many, I immediately knew he would win. You see, Americans come in two flavors…..those that love America and those that hate America. The former is a majority, but the latter is growing from generation to generation. Those that love America, of course, have seen what has happened to the country. But its been like the proverbial frog in the pot being brought to a slow boil….we just haven’t noticed the heat being turned up. These folks, the lovers of America, wanted change.  When George Bush senior was elected, they expected him to further Reagan’s policies. But I can tell you now, this is when it all began. The corruption, the globalism, and the shift in American status. When he didn’t live up to expectations he was thrown out. A new, fresh face, was elected to take over……as it turns out, one of the most corrupt individuals on the planet. His legacy was to institutionalize this corruption.

Let me stop here and explain something that my free trade friends never understood. Under Bill Clinton, we lived through some pretty good economic times. Clinton, to this day, gets credit for presiding over a robust economy. But did he?  Yes, he did. But what is not understood, is our move to globalism had some terrific short-term benefits. You see, it didn’t start as a mass exodus of jobs, a loss of manufacturing, and profits held offshore. It started with lower prices. Los Angeles Port to Be Super-sizedMillions of products were being shipped in at half the price of American made products. If you still had your job, you got a huge dividend……happy, happy, happy.  But slowly, over time, government orchestrated the decline. I say orchestrated, because it was no accident that companies fled abroad. Unions were causing trouble, taxes were going up, regulations were out of control, and work ethic and worker demands were changing. Big business, who now looked at America as a market rather than a home, began the change. With massive government help, the multi-national was born. Companies, that their only interest is to make money and increase value, and to do it wherever and however they can, took over government. The slow boil had begun. Even when Obama came on the scene and ran for president, both flavors of Americans still wanted the change that Reagan had started. A strong, free market economy, a world super power, and a country based on its founding principles of honesty, hard work, and freedom. Obama promised “change”. obama trumpThe word itself was the right word. It appealed to the lovers of America, because it was what they saw as necessary. But it also appealed to the haters, as they saw it completely differently. While the former saw it as a return to ethics and accountability, the latter saw it as a social renaissance . An empowering of every minority group that expressed a grievance. For the most part,  too many lovers of America ignored the past of Obama. They saw only that he was black and wanted the same things they did, and gave him their trust. Well, it not only didn’t work out for them, Obama was just as corrupt, just as supportive of the globalist’ agenda, and the change he promised was cultural, not economic.

Americans are still looking for change….at least the group that still loves this country. They are accused of wanting to return to some by gone era that no longer can be achieved….that globalism is here to stay and the culture must change with the times.

Trump!

So here comes Trump telling us he can give us that change. Of course he would get elected! After 8 years of Obama, a cultural apocalypse, and an economic malaise so destructive, the middle class has all but collapsed. Like all Americans that love this country, Trump saw the same things we all did. Immigration out of control, companies fleeing America, trade deficits at sustained, unprecedented levels, a foreign policy in retreat, radical Islam spreading, and yes, the swamp. In general, America in decline. Trump articulated the things we had been thinking and saying for years. Things must change. The same change that Reagan started and the last 4 presidents tried to stop.trump rally

But Trump did more than articulate. He spoke bluntly and without any political consideration. He spoke like a real person, like any one of us……the lovers of America! I must say, however, there is one thing that stands far above everything else, for me, when it comes to Trump. That is that he was truly honest. He had no ax to grind….he was rich. He had no special interests to satisfy…..he used his own money. He didn’t play political games…..he wasn’t a politician. This brings me to what I have observed. Trump enjoyed a very loyal, supportive base, of 30-35% of Americans.  He also was trusted by another 20% that, like the base. wanted that change. So where are we now?

Trump’s support of 50-55% has fractured. There are still plenty of supporters, but some are beginning to show unsteadiness. That said, I suspect that many of these shaky supporters were never strong supporters in the first place. I don’t mean this in a critical way, but truly, they were looking for miracles. Before the election many of these were NeverTrumpers, CruzAt the 2013 Values Voter Summit. supporters, or libertarians that swallowed hard when he won, and waited. I saw it, personally. Republicans reluctantly admitting that Trump was doing conservative things and pushing for conservative policies. I say reluctantly, because they took every opportunity to find fault. Nothing was ever good enough. To this brand of supporter, short of a new American Revolution…..unless a full return to the constitution was implemented immediately, nothing could be accepted, no matter who was president. Then there’s the free traders I mentioned earlier. They still believe Globalism and free trade are synonymous. They think that globalism was and is inevitable and that we need to adapt. They accuse Trump of being an isolationist because he wants better trade deals. This leads them to conclude that Trump is stupid and out of touch. we the peopleThen there’s the supporter that looks at the presidency as a dictatorship. That a president should be able to get anything accomplished, after all, Obama didn’t seem to have any trouble getting his agenda implemented? Let me say this about the president. Undoubtedly, the POTUS has a lot of power. But it is far from unlimited. Unlike what the constitution outlines as presidential power, the president has the power given to him by the special interests. Does that sound like something you doubt? Of course you do. How can you make yourself believe that special interests literally control the president? Because they control the congress and the bureaucracy, thus limiting the president or empowering the president, whenever that power is needed to implement one of those special interests. Take for example Healthcare. Obama wanted to implement a national healthcare system, in 2008. Something every Republican opposed. So why do we have the ACA? Was it because a few Republicans made deals with their vote as we were told….or was it that the special interests wanted the very thing they said they opposed? Then fast forward…..why can’t it be repealed? The Republicans say they oppose it, but can’t get it done. Why? Because the special interests don’t want it repealed. So see this clearly……one president wants something nobody wants but gets it written into law, while another president wants to end it, which everybody wants, but can’t get it done. You need to see this for what it is. This is how the system works for every issue in America, of any consequence. But I digress. So many of Trump supporters can’t understand why he can’t get the ACA repealed…that he should be able to make deals like Obama did…..he should use the Bully Pulpit to convince the American people….yadda, yadda, yadda! This demonstrates the naivety of many Americans. They still haven’t grasped the premise that the government is absolutely corrupt. So they blame Trump. For Trump, its like trying to write a letter, with your hands tied behind your back. He is trying to work within the rules, while the cogs in congress are being turned by the engine of corruption.  Finally, there are people who are just impatient for change that they were promised. They sit back, do nothing, and expect Trump….all by himself….will fix everything. They criticize everything he does, they say he’s not keeping his promises, they treat him like any other politician…but Trump is not that. Trump is like any one of us, only much smarter. He knows what the lovers of America want and is doing everything in his power to get us there. We must stay with him and we must stay focused on the corruption….speaking out often to make sure congress knows we know. Read the rest of my blog if you have any doubts….my 11 part series on the Clinton Foundation…..my three part series on the Uranium One scandal…..or the two-part essay on the deep state. It’s all there…..wrap yourself in the facts and spread them. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Congressman Jim Jordan about the Clinton Foundation. He asked me to send him what I had….I did. Will it matter? Probably not. He says the right things, seems sincere…but still no action. It will take thousands of us doing this to have an impact. But even then, we are up against more money than can even be imagined, and if you have learned anything about life as you make your walk through it….MONEY DRIVES EVERYTHING! Period!

Let me address one current news item that will come to demonstrate how far the corrupt government will go to stay in power and maintain the status quo. Recently, Judge Roy Moore, won the republican primary in Alabama. He defeated Mo Brooks, a sitting congressman, and Luther Strange, the republican establishment’ selection. He won fair and square in a deep red state, with a large majority of lovers of America. I could almost hear the voters words as they made their choice…..Mo Brooks is a politician…Nope!, Luther Strange is the establishment….Nope! Roy Moore….a long serving, principled judge, who absolutely loves America. Yes! roy mooreMoney flowed into Luther’s coffers…but it wasn’t enough. Now what I want you to see is how to look at what happened next in the context of corruption. First, you have to understand something. The republican congress hates being in the majority. At least, today, with Trump as president. You see, it was good when Obama was president because he could block whatever they did, same with the democrats…..when they had the majority and Obama was president, they too failed to move the people’s agenda. That’s how it works. They blame the other party for their perceived failures, when really they didn’t fail, everything went according to plan. They want and have adapted to a divided government. It allows them to blather on about doing the people’s work, while they continue to serve their masters……the big money special interests. But what does this have to do with Roy Moore, you ask?  Everything. right AFTER Moore wins the primary, a poll comes out showing him with a 17 point lead over the democrat in the upcoming special election in December. All through the primary, the establishment told the voters that Moore couldn’t win against the democrat….then why is he 17 points up? luthor strangeTime to take him down. Out comes the accusations, from so long ago that nothing could be proven one way or the other….a classic she said he said. But what is telling is that 15 minutes after the allegations were made a bevy of sitting republican senators felt compelled to weigh in and try, convict, and sentence Roy Moore to oblivion. The calls for his stepping aside were thunderous…from the right!   But think of this: Senator Menendez is on trial for corruption and pedophilia and not a peep from anyone that he should resign. In fact, they’ve been trying to figure out how they can get his vote back in the senate. If that’s all there was you might just call it hypocrisy, but there’s more. The senate recently put forward their tax “reform” plan. I put reform in quotes because this is far, far from tax reform…but that’s another story. In this tax plan, the corporate tax rate has been lowered from 35% to 20%. Almost everyone agrees that this is needed. Great! Then why does McConnell insist pushing it back until 2019, after the midterm elections? Because he fully expects and wants to lose the majority in the senate. This will allow the democrats to block this tax reform, so everything can stay the same. Once again democrats and republicans working to maintain the status quo. But now you question me….if everybody wants this, why would he want to stop it? Just like the ACA, everybody wants it but the special interests. In this case, the giant multi-national corporations. Think of this. The multi-nationals like Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Apple, Dow, and dozens of others are making gazillions of dollars with the tax system we have. They pay almost no taxes, meet no regulations and pay no high labor rates. Meanwhile, all your American competitors are strapped with all those things. If you think about it….as I have….its beautiful. What a great strategy. Once they lose the senate, Trump will become neutralized for the most part. They then can campaign on Trump’s inability to keep any of his promises in 2020, and be rid of him in January of 2021. The establishment wins. And you can bet your ass, that they are working right now on a plan to make sure what happened in 2016, never happens again.
pile of money
I hope you can see from this example, just how politics and money has destroyed our democracy. Our government no longer works to protect our rights or serve our needs. It simply is a product to be bought by those with the most money.

Rest assured I will continue to do my research and present the facts to anyone that will listen. But I am not hopeful that we can change anything. We’ve changed the people, we’ve changed the party, we’ve protested, campaigned, called, written, posted, and complained. But still, nothing changes. There was a time when right here I would right: “Not until we……”, but I just can’t do it. There is nothing we can do as a people who can change things short of revolution….but even that might not be enough. Its one thing to fight a government that’s corrupt and tyrannical….its quite another to fight 50% of the population that thinks everything is perfect and should continue….the rubes on the left that can’t find their ass in a snow storm with two hands. Our best hope is to stay on the Trump Train, pick up as many stragglers as we can and ride that train for as long as we can. Trump is doing his part….we have to do ours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INDIVISIBLE 2

Their Strategy

In my last post I began an investigation into Indivisible. Before I go on with that report below, I want to post the Facebook post I made that prompted this research. It stemmed from an audio recording provided that exposed organizing tactics of the disruption of town halls in small city congressional districts. Here is that post:

“Recently I posted an audio of some folks strategizing about how to disrupt republican town halls. The main instructor was identified as James Proctor. So I did a little research….duh!

I can’t attest to any of this because it was an audio, and I couldn’t see his face, thus age. But there were only 3 James Proctors listed in Louisiana. The one that stood out was from Jeanerette, Louisiana, almost on top of Acadiana, where the article said there was a branch of “Indivisible”.  Coincidently, Jeanerette and Acadiana are only about 30 miles south of Lafayette, where LSU is. Hmmmmm! I think I got the right James Proctor. If I do, Mr. Proctor is a reverend and runs an outfit called ALPHA COMMUNITY OUTREACH CENTER. Below is a screen shot from a D & B report that shows they got a little money in the bank. But there’s more. On their non-profit documents there are 3 principles, including Proctor. One is named Clifton Tate, who is also a partner in an insurance agency in Opelousas, LA about 10 miles north of Lafayette, but lives in Jeanerette. Mr. Tate is the director of JEANERETTE CITIZENS ALLIANCE FOR PROGRESS, INC. At the exact same address is another non-profit called EVENING STARLIGHT OPTIMIST CLUB. I initially thought this was just some other business in the same building, but it is registered as a non-profit, and the same guy is also an agent for both…Russell Boutte of Jeanerette.

The actions on the audio are reported to have been guided by “INDIVISIBLE” an organized progressive, very organized group that claims affiliation with 7000 groups all over America. That’s no small feat. I’ll do more on Indivisible tomorrow, but I believe this is a PAID, organized effort to undermine any and all of Trumps legislation. Never, ever, never, underestimate the power or the money on the left. They will do anything and everything to stop our movement.”

Here is the audio and story behind INDIVISIBLE:

Matthew Schoenberger, of New Orleans, shouts a question at Republican U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy during a town hall meeting in Metairie

If you’ve read the first post on this story, I tracked the money and followed it to its source. I also outlined how INDIVISIBLE was created and by whom. Now I want to show you their strategy and why they are doing what they are doing. Make no mistake, the left is trying to create a Tea Party type movement. But they are doing it using violence, agitation and disruption. They no longer believe that protests alone can get them what they want. They are taking their disruption to small towns and cities near you. The left is on the march and have the money and the organization to spread their radical ideas to our communities. Pay close attention to who is running for your mayor, your council, or your school board. The only wildcard is the division between the two faction competing for control…..the OFA (Organizing for Action) which is run by Obama and the DNC establishment and INDIVISIBLE, which is the more radical, socialist wing of the party, run by the now defunct Sanders people.

Micah White

 

In my research, I came across a man named Micah White. He is a co-founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Occupy Wall Street happened 5 years ago. In a recent interview, Mr. White said OWS was a “constructive failure”. He said this to the interviewer:
“….the number one thing for people to realize is that protest alone doesn’t give the people power. There is no constitutional requirement that Trump has to listen to protests if they exceed a certain size, et cetera. There’s only two ways to gain political power in our world right now and that’s to win elections or win wars.” Then on November 14th, White wrote in an article for Guardian. He said this: “What is to be done now? American activists must move from detached indignation to revolutionary engagement. They must use the techniques that create social movements to dominate elections.”

 

Now, you might say…just another wacho from the left. But they really do have a plan and the money to carry it out. Mr. White tried somewhat of an experiment. He moved from the big city of San Francisco, to a corner of Oregon’s coast called Nahalem. Even as small as it was it had its poor and homeless. With an average income of $47,000 it lived off of tourism. Nahalem has 180 registered voters. He lived there for a few years and then ran for mayor.  It completely divided the small town. Neighbor versus neighbor, black versus white. His goal was to see if he could take his message to rural America. He lost the contentious election 139-36. The point to this, is it was an experiment. This is the coming application of taking over rural America…..win small elections and turn the counties.

Becky Bond

 

In that same interview with Current, another guest was being interviewed along with White. Her name was Becky Bond. She was a senior advisor to Bernie Sanders, and responsible for organizing the grass roots through the use of social media for the campaign. She said this: “….consumers going to a company or it can be as voters going to a politician threatening to throw them out if they don’t fight for the agenda that helps the people with the problems that they’re facing in their lives. It’s also increasingly becoming people becoming sand in the gears of the machine and actually resisting and refusing to participate in a government that abuses their rights.” I’ll leave it up to you to read into her comments what you will.

rules-for-revolutionaries

Bond also has written a book. A book with a familiar ring to it with political junkies: Rules for Revolutionaries But she has taken her knowledge from the campaign and has taken it to a new level creating INDIVISIBLE, an organized, well funded community organizing force touting 7000 affiliates all over America, ready to protest at a minutes notice. But there is a disconnect between the tens of thousands of minions within the INDIVISIBLE movement and the establishment OFA, led by OBAMA. Obama has said that the left needs to create a “tea party type movement”. So both factions have the same strategy, and both are vying for the same money and control. Just as with the republican party, there is a massive struggle between the grass roots and the establishments. Who will win in the democrat party is unclear, but the point of this report is to warn you of the new strategy. They are bringing these protests to small rural venues. They have figured out that they need to win more than just the big cities. But beware, its not just simple protests. They plan to agitate and disrupt, and find militant candidates that will run for local offices. In other words, they want to divide our neighborhoods. The irony is, just as they are pulling out stops to win in the rural areas, republicans are trying to figure out how to win in the cities. Whoever solves the problem will be undefeatable….I’m putting my money on Trump.

INDIVISIBLE

The Investigation Begins

I want to get some of this out while its fresh in my mind…..my memory just isn’t what it used to be. I like to compare it to a mall parking lot at Christmas. A fact drives around for a half hour trying to find an empty space at the front. Someone has to leave (a memory) before you can use the spot to use later.

credo
Screen Shot from CREDO Website

 

Anyway….I have been trying to determine what’s going on with all the protests. It really wasn’t too hard to get a reasonable framework. It starts with a cellular phone company called CREDO MOBILE. This is a real corporation with about $25 million in sales, but is a part of a larger venture called WORKING ASSETS, Inc., which is a 100 million dollar company. The two founders of Working Assets are Laura Scher and Michael Kieschnick. Credo is a very unique company in what they do with their money. Billed as a “socially conscious” enterprise, it donates millions to progressive causes. On their website, they say that to date they have contributed $82 million to progressive causes.

After reading that paragraph, you might think…well that’s fine….that is their right. But let’s go just a little deeper. Laura Scher is a director of the Rosenberg Foundation. (Here we go again with a foundation.) The Rosenberg Foundation funds our old friends at the TIDES CENTER….if you don’t remember these folks they were the money behind A.C.O.R.N. and a favorite place where George Soros parks his money. Oddly enough, the Rosenberg Foundation also funds the RAND CORPORATION, a non-profit, that is also funded by the US government. They do a vast amount of research on many, many subjects. This may be a superfilous tangent, but RAND does a lot of analysis for the military. The other co-founder of CREDO, Michael Kieschnick, is a director at the LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS. You may not recognize this outfit, but I sure do. During past research, I bumped into this group several times. Before I go on, I just want to point something out about being a director of any public or private group. Although it does prove a connection between people, it doesn’t prove much beyond that. In fact some of the most important people in the world are board members or directors of dozens of companies and organizations at the same time. What’s important about these two directorships is, for both Scher  and Kieschnick, this is their only directorship. The function of a director is to determine where they will spend money, especially within a foundation board. So they have to not only know but actually vote to spend this money. Back to the story. The LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS, and the TIDES CENTER are both left wing activists groups. This is where it gets very interesting. The LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS and the TIDES CENTER are also both funded by SEA CHANGE. That’s that obscure organization funded by Nat Simons and Klein, Ltd. Klein, Ltd being that organization that had deep connections to the Russian Oil Industry. You can read about Sea Change here.

INTO THE WEEDS 11

The League of CONSERVATION VOTERS is a national partner of AMERICA VOTES. You know where that takes us? PLANNED PARENTHOOD and Cecile Richards. Normally I’d say that was shocking to me, but I have done a lot of these studies, and it seems we always get back to here or the Clinton Foundation.

 

I started this with CREDO as the starting point and I took you all the way to the source of the money. But what does any of this have to do with the protests in airports and congressional town halls?  Credo’s two largest recipients of funding are the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. In one weekend, the ACLU gave $13 million to Becky Bond and Kenneth Pennington, the people that founded INDIVISIBLE. This is the organization that is organizing and paying people to teach how to agitate. They have paid for and aided in the creation of a handbook called “A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR RESISTING THE TRUMP AGENDA” It is a 26 page guide explaining tactics to disrupt and agitate in order to MAKE congress listen.  You can read this pamphlet here.

indivisible

It was authored using a collaborative effort between these folks Angel Padilla, Leah Greenberg, Billy Fleming, Caroline Kavit, Emily Phelps, Ezra Levin, Gonzalo Martinez de Vedia, Indivar Dutta-Gupta, Jennay Ghowrwal, Jeremy Halle, Mary Humphreys, Matt Traldi, Sara Clough, and Sara Dohl

I also found that Bond and Pennington are also two former senior advisors to the Sanders campaign. I also found that the OFA (Organizing For Action) A group of Obama supporters is also raising a lot of money…..and these two factions are not on the same page. In fact, one article, it was said that they are on a collision course. So what do I think is going on here? I believe that the people at the bottom are truly grass roots. They have no idea how they are being manipulated by the rich elite. They are used just like serfs to serve the interests of those that they so hate. But the money flows in and things get done…..I don’t think they give it much thought. At the other end, the usual layer after layer after layer, covering their fingerprints on what they are doing. Soros, Cecile Richards, the ACLU, all the normal players spending gobs and gobs of money, to agitate and protest to gain power for their perverse agenda. In my next post I will talk about what their new strategy just might be. And how this INDIVISIBLE is using young people and social justice warriors to change the political landscape. Stay tuned, I’ve only scratched the surface.

The Battle Continues

We must win the fight against the progressives!

An essay from my great friend Robert Surgenor. Robert is a retired detective, long time police officer, author, photographer, and IT expert who is a true American conservative and patriot. He sees the problems of America through the eyes of common sense. I am proud to include his latest essay on my blog.
tea_party09
Buckle up folks. Many of you are aware of what I am about to say, but many are clueless as to what is happening in our political world right now.

If we lose the fight I am about to describe, the United States of America will cease to exist as a free nation designed by our forefathers as a representative republic that provides opportunities and freedoms that no other country has ever experienced in the history of the word.

The progressive socialistic movement in this country has been taking baby steps for years to take control of our government. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama all took steps to rip the control of our government from “We The People” and to transfer that authority to themselves. They had grand plans to complete their mission with the election of Hillary Clinton. They miscalculated the will of We The People, and the tenacity of Donald Trump.

But it didn’t take long for the progressive movement to regroup. Barack Obama has set up headquarters in Washington. There is overwhelming evidence that there is a network of noted liberal leaders working together in what could be described as a “shadow government.” And the major objective of this organization is to disrupt and destroy the efforts of Donald Trump.

The progressive liberals hate conservatism. And they are dedicated to destroying it. They believe an unborn baby can be murdered. The conservative movement is a threat to that activity. They believe that men should be allowed to marry men. The conservative movement believes otherwise. They believe that the hard earned dollars of the working man should be given to people who don’t work. Conservatives believe that a person should be allowed to keep what they earn, and if you can work and don’t, you don’t live. Both classic and social liberalism are a threat to conservatism.

The liberals are busy disrupting the town meetings being held by the Republicans. They want to make it appear that conservatives are unhappy with Trump. Closet liberals, like John Boehner are making public statements to discredit Trump and his desire to dismantle Obamacare. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck You Schumer spend hours in front of the news cameras lying to the American people about Donald Trumps’s objectives. Elizabeth Warren has been seen screeching about how she is single handedly going to stop Donald Trump from building his wall. Inside the Trump administration, Obama appointees, still working in many of the numerous departments within the government, are leaking secret information to the media and throwing roadblocks in the way of progress that Trumps hopes to accomplish.

The swamp is much deeper and more dangerous that anyone imagined. There are citizen activists that want to destroy Trump. There are Democratic elected officials that want to destroy Trump. There are Republican elected officials that want to destroy Trump.

We The People had better become engaged in this conflict. If we lose, America will no longer exist. Seriously!

Corrution? Government or Corporations?

Who’s to blame?

Disclaimer: this piece is my opinion, based on my business acumen and years of experience observing politics.

Below I have proven beyond any doubt that the Clinton Foundation and all its cohorts are a corrupt criminal enterprise. I have also provided information revealing firm links between the Foundation and the political establishment and the CIA. This latter point leaves room for debate, but the corruption can leave no doubt.

Over the years, I have had hundreds of debates whether corruption is the fault of government or the fault of corporate America. Those on the left believe the solution is more government power and regulation to counter the corporate corruption.  Laws like Dodd/Frank, ACA, and so many others, reveal this desire for more control and more power to regulate. I believe corporate corruption cannot exist without government assistance and a desire to aquiesce to their needs. With less power and less regulation and less money to spend, government could not do the favors they do for corporate America.

So what’s behind the connections between the Clinton Foundation, Dow, Boieng, Humana, Coke, and the others that have given millions to the Clintons for favors? Corporations are in the business to make money….as much money as they can make. It is not only their business, it is their fuduciary responsibilty to do so. If a corrupt government official will take money in return for consideration, a law, or a favor, they will spend the money. If the government official will not take the money, they will have to work much harder to compete, make better products, or provide services that sell. That’s the old fashion way, but the way all of us expect should be used. Using government to help you make money, is much, much easier. The point is, they will do whatever it takes to make money….they will play in any system that allows them to make money, and they are more than willing to spend millions if it will return billions.

Andrew Liveris, CEO Dow Chemical

Now I want to talk about an interview I saw recently with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Liveris was one of my subjects in the posts below,  INTO THE WEEDS 8. There, I discussed Dow’s use of the Exp/Imp bank to fund a $20 billion dollar chemical plant in Saudi Arabia, and how the approval of a $5 billion loan from the taxpayers was acheived through e-mails with the directors at the Exp/Imp Bank with promises of jobs at the foundations right arm, Teneo. Liveris was a staunch defender of Clinton for president and Dow contributed millions to the foundation. Dow also contribbuted to her campaign, and spoke publically against Trump. Building a plant on this scale in a foreign country, requires state department approval, and Hillary Clinton was SOS at the time. It would seem the whole episode came at a price. That’s how “pay for play” works. You can read the details here at my blog: https://kengeorge.org/2016/11/21/into-the-weeds-8/

Back to the interview. Liveris was just leaving a meeting he had at the White House with other business leaders, and Donald Trump, on February 20th. Reportedly, the business leaders talked about the reforms Trump was placing on regulation, his tax reform plan, the border tax, and the repatriozation of 2 trillion dollars of foreign profits. When Liveris was interviewed, he praised Trump and supported every single point in his plan. After hearing what he had to say, I thought he was a “Get on the Train” Trump supporter. He couldn’t have been more complimentary or supportive. It was absolutely striking! You see, my premise was that Corporations want to make money however they can. They will do what it takes. Because Clinton lost, they now have to change direction. They have to work with whomever is in power to make as much money as they can, and Trump is now in power…they’ll have to do it the old fashion way, which is going to be good for America.

Corruption, The Big Picture

Where we go from here

Corruption, The Big Picturehillaryforprison2016notthewhitehousebut_018cb3_5291212

Over the last few months I have been exposing a pattern of corruption within the Clinton Foundation and its many tentacle outcroppings. It is pervasive to say the least. Since the election of 2016 is now history, and Hillary Clinton lost, will it all just go away? There is not one doubt in my mind that there is no possible way it will end. What I have exposed and what you should garner from these stories is that this is not the corruption of the past. Yes, there has always been corruption in government….not a big surprise. One corporation would fund a campaign to elect a congressman or senator that would introduce a bill or create a regulation to benefit that donor. That’s one thing, its gone on for as long as we’ve been a country. But shaping the global system, while benefitting financially, a global elite, is quite another. Foundations are now the means of accomplishing this. Money can flow into these organizations….many times anonymously, and buy influence from politicians, leaders, and whole countries. It’s not just the Clinton Foundation. These foundations hide in plain sight. They use some of their donations to do good work, while using the bulk of it to shape world events….and that takes a lot of money. Organizations like the Hellenic Initiative in Greece, created by the CEO of Dow Chemical, The Radcliffe Foundation in Canada, that has bought the Columbian government, and run by Frank Guistra, or the Soros Foundation that has bought several Balkan nations. There are dozens of others.

As Americans we were born to be good. So many of us grew up believing in God and country, mom, and apple pie. We believe in the constitution and what it stands for, our founding, our exceptionalism….we are Americans! I often ask myself, since I know history…is there something different about this than about what happened in the past? It’s a hard question to answer. Many times, throughout history, there have been very bad things that have happened in government. America survived and got better and stronger. Is this just another one of those times? I suppose you could frame it that way…but I’m not so sure. The world is changing. It is moving from a centuries old nationalistic system to a global system. What happens to America in a global system? A global system necessitates, I believe, that capitalism has to go away. At least the kind of capitalism that we understand. If global elites are deciding where the wealth goes, who benefits, and who loses, where does it leave the American middle class? I really don’t believe we can stop this push to globalism…but we can slow it down. Hillary and Bill represent the end of a corrupt generation. If we can show them to the door, and hold them to account, we can send a strong message that our ideals can prevail. That doesn’t mean that a new, younger generation of crooks isn’t following in their foot steps, but we will have sent a huge message to them that they must figure out another method to steal, lie and cheat the American people.

While doing this research I came to feel like I live in the Matrix. We go about our lives, while we really have no control over anything that happens. So many of us pay attention, do our due diligence, help our candidates, and vote, all the while thinking we did our part to support our beliefs and vision for America. Does any of it matter? Can this corruption be changed….be stopped? I guess my analogy would say, could we stop the use of cell phones and the use of the internet? Yes it is possible, but extremely unlikely.  This level of corruption has been developed over decades by people bent on power. The lawyers that create the systems are smart and know the laws they need to use to maintain deniability of any wrong doing.  Prosecuting the Clintons and making them an example should be of the highest priorities.

When Donald Trump won the election, I was elated. Not so much because he is a republican or he will implement new trade deals, fix the border, or implement any number of new policies. I have always saw Trump as one of us. Yeah, he’s a billionaire…I get it. But he is a normal American businessman. He doesn’t deal in global corruption. Sure, in his world there are bribes and payoffs and favors…..but none of those things affect the world order. My hope is Trump will see this corruption and react to it. He claims to be a nationalist. He can end this wave of global corruption, he has that power, now. Will they stand by and accept the change? NO! They won’t. If Trump does what I think he is capable of doing, his life will be in real jeopardy. This is no joke….they will use all their tools to defeat everything he proposes, but when it fails….if it fails….they will look to Pence, an establishment elite, to continue the status quo. Don’t forget why we elected Trump. Yes to change course, but for so many of us, we were fighting the establishment in the parties that implements all the demands of the global elite……NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, the WTO, the World Bank, the IMF, the EXP/IMP Bank, foreign subsidiary laws, Bank Bailouts, Stimulus, Low interest rates, and quantitative easing….all policies and organizations to benefit the global elite and big money special interests.

I will continue to do my work exposing corruption….I hope you all will continue to pay attention.
