Democrats: Trump Must Surrender On Funding For A Border Wall To Avoid A Government Shutdown On His 100th Day In Office

Democrats: Trump Must Surrender On Funding For A Border Wall To Avoid A Government Shutdown On His 100th Day In Office | Illegal-Immigration-Border-Wall-Public-Domain-700x466 | Politics Special Interests Trump

Is Donald Trump going to unconditionally surrender to the Democrats and completely give up his dream of building a border wall in order to avoid a government shutdown on his 100th day in office? As I have warned before, the Democrats are perfectly willing to force a government shutdown if the Trump administration and the Republicans in Congress do not let them win all of the key battles in this funding bill fight. It is being reported that the Trump administration wants 3 billion dollars for extra border security and for construction of a border wall, and the Democrats are insisting that they will keep any bill that includes money for a border wall from ever getting through Congress. And of course the Democrats are also taking a very hard line on funding for Planned Parenthood, federal support for key Obamacare provisions, and resistance to increased defense spending. If the Trump administration and enough establishment Republicans in Congress cave in to the outrageous demands of the Democrats, a government shutdown will be avoided. If not, a government shutdown will begin on April 29th (Trump’s 100th day in office), and it could easily turn out to be the longest government shutdown in the history of the United States.

If Trump gives up on his border wall now, it is quite likely that he will never get it.

Emboldened by this success, the Democrats will simply threaten to block any new bill that contains funding for a border wall in the future. At some point Trump is going to have to stand up for himself if he ever wants to see his number one campaign promise become a reality, and the longer he waits the less leverage he is going to have.

At this moment, the Trump administration appears to be taking a tough stance on border wall funding, and they have even offered a deal to the Democrats that would trade continued Obamacare payments to insurers for money for a border wall…

Mick Mulvaney, President Trump’s budget chief, said the wall is the administration’s “top priority” for the talks, adding they would support key ObamaCare payments to insurers if Democrats backed the border wall money.

“We’d offer them $1 of CSR payments for $1 of wall payments. Right now that’s the offer that we’ve given to our Democratic colleagues,” Mulvaney said during a Bloomberg Live interview, referring to the ObamaCare payments known as cost-sharing reduction (CSR).

In that same interview, Mulvaney added that “you cannot expect a president who just won [an] election to give up very easily on his highest priority.”

And I certainly agree with Mulvaney. The border wall was the number one issue that Trump campaigned on, and if he unconditionally surrenders to the Democrats on this issue without much of a fight, it will essentially be the neutering of his entire presidency.

The Democrats seem to know what is at stake, and they are digging in for war. At this point they are completely united in their stance that there will not be a single penny for a border wall. The following comes from CNS News

Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that President Trump should not expect Congress to give him any money to fund his “outlandish” border wall.

Trump has requested $1.4 billion to get the wall started in the current fiscal year, which runs through September, but Durbin on Sunday called it a political stunt and a poison pill:

“I hope the president will back off,” Durbin said.

So will either side back down by Friday?

I don’t think so, and that means that a government shutdown is coming.

Of course there is talk that Congress could pass a one week or two week extension to give negotiations more time, but that would just delay the inevitable.

And it isn’t just the border wall that is a sticking point. Other issues such as funding for Planned Parenthood and increased spending for national defense could potentially derail any deal. The following comes from Business Insider

Thomas Block, a Washington policy analyst at Fundstrat, described the problem in a note to clients on Monday:

“In the House, there is a group consisting of Tea Party and Freedom Caucus Republicans who believe that almost any spending bill is too large for them to support. Therefore, Speaker Ryan is likely going to need some Democratic support to get a bill passed. The problem is that no Democrats will support a bill that contains the president’s stated priorities.

“Furthermore, many Republicans want to use the spending bill to stop all funding for Planned Parenthood, a clear poison pill as far as most Democrats are concerned.”

In order for the public to have three days to examine any bill before a vote happens, a spending bill is going to have to be unveiled in the House by Wednesday at the latest in order to meet the deadline.

Is that going to happen?

I doubt it, but it is always possible.

But even if a bill gets through the House, that doesn’t mean that the Senate will be on board with it, and unless that bill contains funding for a border wall Trump may not sign it.

So what specifically would happen during a government shutdown? The following is a good summary from Zero Hedge

  1. Details of which government functions stop are determined by the Office of Management and Budget.
  2. If it looks like a shutdown will occur, White House budget office works with federal agencies to determine which federal functions and employees are “essential” or “excepted.” The White House has latitude in how broadly it defines “excepted.”
  3. Agencies and services considered non-essential close. Federal workers will be furloughed without pay. The Federal Government employs over 4-million individuals, so this can be hundreds of thousands of workers affected. Congress may decide after the shutdown to pay them for the time off. Financial disruption is one concern.
  4. “Emergency personnel” continue to be employed, including the active duty military, federal law enforcement agents, doctors and nurses working in federal hospitals, and air traffic controllers. For the Department of Defense, at least half of the civilian workforce, and the full-time, dual-status military technicians in the US National Guard and traditional Guardsmen (those on Title 32 status) are furloughed without pay. Members of Congress continue to be paid, because their pay cannot be altered except by direct law.

Congress is only going to be back in session for two weeks before another extended 10 day vacation begins on May 5th.

That means that the clock is ticking, and at this point a deal does not seem close.

Personally, I am fully convinced that the Democrats are more than willing to allow a government shutdown to happen, because they believe that it will damage the Republicans far more than it will damage them.

So they are not going to move from their demands, and that means that either Trump is going to have to give up his dream of a border wall or there will be a government shutdown on his 100th day in office.

Trump’s Drug Czar Pick Exposed For Being on Big Pharma’s Payroll

Trump’s Drug Czar Pick Exposed For Being on Big Pharma’s Payroll | pills-medicine-money | Big Pharma Politics Trump

By: Annabelle Bamforth, The Free Thought Project |

President Donald Trump’s reported choice to serve as Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy has raised alarm concerning conflict of interest, as his top pick has been criticized for protecting and benefiting from the pharmaceutical industry.

The ONDCP is responsible for most of the shaping of U.S. drug policy and will also be “providing administrative support” for Trump’s newly-created special commission to combat the opiate crisis. Trump’s top choice, Pennsylvania Congressman Tom Marino, is expected to resign from Congress to become the country’s “drug czar.

For those who seek to genuinely hold the pharmaceutical industry accountable for its role in the country’s opiate crisis, Marino is a perilous choice. The International Business Times has uncovered troubling background of Marino’s relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, particularly regarding donations.

According to IBT, Marino “would come to the job after pulling in big money from an industry that is producing and distributing the nation’s most deadly legal drugs. Marino has received more than $150,000 in donations from the pharmaceutical industry in his political career, including $71,000 for the 2016 election, according to records at Maplight.org and Opensecrets.org. The data show Marino has received more money from the pharmaceutical industry than any other sector.”

While he has yet to comment on his reception of those hefty donations, Marino is also responsible for establishing the Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act, which essentially hinders the DEA’s ability to go after drug companies that have made profits in the midst of the opiate epidemic.

Before its passage, DEA Deputy Assistant Administrator Joseph Rannazzisi was vocal about his opposition to the bill, warning that if the bill “passes the way it’s written we won’t be able to get immediate suspension orders, we won’t be able to stop the hemorrhaging of these drugs out of these bad pharmacies and these bad corporations.”

Following Rannazzisi’s criticisms, Marino sought to have the Justice Department investigate Rannazzisi and “whether Rannazzisi had tried to ‘intimidate’ members of Congress,” according to IBT. The Los Angeles Times reported that the bill “allows companies accused of failing to report suspicious orders of dangerous drugs to submit a ‘corrective action plan’ to persuade the Drug Enforcement Administration to postpone or abandon proceedings against them. The law also raises the bar for the DEA to temporarily suspend their licenses.”

The Los Angeles Times added that this bill was well supported by “manufacturers, wholesalers and pharmacy chains, including some targeted by the DEA in recent years for not doing enough to keep drugs from addicts and drug dealers.”

It’s quite clear that Marino has benefitted from big pharma’s large donations and has experience in helping shape drug policy that effectively protects the industry.

In addition to his political cordiality with the industry, Marino has shown through his time in Congress that he is opposed to pro-cannabis legislation. “In Congress, Marino voted multiple times against a bipartisan measure to prevent the Justice Department from going after state-legal medical marijuana businesses,” The Cannabist reported.

“Similarly, he voted against a measure to allow Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend medical marijuana to their patients, as well as against a separate measure to loosen federal restrictions on hemp,” the publication noted, and “also voted against a measure that would loosen some restrictions on CBD oil, a non-psychoactive derivative of the cannabis plant that holds promise for treating severe forms of childhood epilepsy.” Marino has been quoted as showing support for continued research of cannabis, but ignorantly remains opposed to legalization without “a really in depth-medical scientific study.”

Maj. Neill Franklin (Ret.), a 34-year Baltimore and Maryland State Police Department veteran and the executive director of Law Enforcement Action Partnership, offered the following statement in response to Marino’s tentative appointment: “Any drug czar in-step with the majority of Americans would end the War on Drugs and invest in treatment and harm reduction. Our top priority should be funding supervised injection facilities and heroin maintenance programs, and making treatment and other harm reduction services widely available and affordable. If done properly, it’ll be cheaper and more effective than any drug enforcement efforts of the past 50 years.”

A Global Catastrophe Is Being Orchestrated By The Elites: “There Are Many Things The President Does Not Know”

A Global Catastrophe Is Being Orchestrated By The Elites: “There Are Many Things The President Does Not Know” | puppet-master-planet | Sleuth Journal Special Interests War Propaganda World News

By: Jeremiah Johnson, SHTFplan.com |

Following the money is always the key and crucial element to determining the “probable cause/modus operandi” regarding to globalist actions.  Although there are many who believe that President Trump is the panacea to all our problems, even they may perhaps admit that there are forces other than the President that drive our country, as well as the world.  The shadowy cabal of globalists, Bilderbergers, bankers, and other secretive organizations bent on a “union” of totalitarian control are almost too numerous to count.

There are many things the President does not know.  This is intentional on the part of the moneyed interests that control the very fabric of our society.  The interests are corporate, political, and religious: a three-level tier of control over all the facets of human society.  Just as one individual person cannot “dominate” one of these sectors, the sectors themselves cannot dominate.  They are forced into a symbiotic relationship rooted in commensalism, where each of these “parasites” benefits the other two.

The problem lies in the fact that these interests are elitists who believe in the forced imposition of their philosophies upon the masses.  They also believe in “culling the herd,” and maintaining a servile population at minimum levels to carry out all menial labor and industrial production (the Deltas and Epsilons of Huxley’s Brave New World) as they direct.  Patiently these elitists have been awaiting the day when their “1984” society is a reality, crafting and shaping it all along throughout the decades.

The numbers of humanity pose a problem, because they cannot effectively eradicate all necessary without a large-scale plague or a war, and after such an event, the planet itself might be unsustainable.

The key question for them: how to kill off about 6 to 6 ½ billion people without destroying the world?

The most efficient way would be with a limited nuclear war that destroyed enough key targets to minimize postwar effectiveness of the major powers, in a manner that does not irradiate most of the warring nations.  The key to the entire equation is to take down the United States.  The EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) is the weapon of choice.  This would paralyze all the infrastructure, leading to (as so eloquently outlined in the book “One Second After”) mass die-offs and the reduction of populations to pre-industrial societies.

The shielded and stocked communities of the elite could just sit back and allow the populations to destroy themselves and whittle down the numbers.  After a time (most likely already estimated and predetermined), mercenary forces of the elitists could emerge to mop up the remnant, enslaving and subjugating them completely.

The question isn’t whether this is in the works: it is.  The elite have been following such plans as revealed in the Iron Mountain Report, and the moneyed interests have been crafting their plans long before House wrote Philip Dru, Administrator, as he and Wilson created the Federal Reserve and laid the roots for the cancer that is pervasive and underlying the thin veneer of our phony, Hallmark-Card society.

The numerous articles about the millionaires and billionaires forming “intentional communities” and compounds/complexes for the purpose of surviving an apocalyptic event/societal collapse are not inaccurate.  The widespread reports of tunnel complexes, nonstop truck deliveries, and the diversion of taxpayer-funded government resources to secret locations throughout the United States are not inaccurate.  Jesse Ventura was investigating many of these matters before the moneyed interests put a stop to his actions and he retired from the field without fanfare.  Everyone who has exposed or threatened to expose them has either been marginalized or destroyed.  Just as people search for the “one” hero, they are also easily manipulated to focus upon “one” villain, such as a Kim Jong-Un, or a Bashar al-Assad.  Substitute the name “Emmanuel Goldstein” for either of them before the Two-Minutes Hate is conducted.

Fast forward to now.  The bottom line is that when different factors come together “coincidentally” the probability for action by the elites and the point of no return is increased exponentially.

They haven’t ushered in their era yet; they will not until they’re certain they can pull it off, but they will eventually make a play for it.

These power-brokers will not commit themselves in the gamble unless they’re sure of a win.  For this reason, it is important to monitor the hot spots for those convergent points to know when something is likely to occur: when the possibility exists, and the probability increases.  One of those points of convergence is this week.

The North Koreans are supposed to test another nuclear device on or about the 25th of this month.  “Coincidentally,” that EMP “drill” named Operation Gotham Shield is supposed to run through April 25th, and possibly a little longer.  Coincidentally, there was a power outage in three different U.S. cities: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City on Thursday.  Coincidentally, Russian bomber and intelligence-gathering aircraft have been flying test runs along the coast of Alaska, for four days straight with the U.S. and even Canada scrambling fighters to intercept.  Coincidentally, the Russians claim to have electronic devices with an EMP-type effect, already used against the USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer with Tomahawk missiles back in November of 2014.  Coincidentally, the U.S. naval armada is set to arrive in the waters off the Korean coast on April 26th… right in line with the EMP drill “Operation Gotham Shield.”

All these factors point toward a false flag.  If the opportunity to pull such a false flag off arises, they will seize upon it.  Trolls without number try to disparage this concept… the “nothing has happened yet, therefore nothing will happen” crowd.  The ones who are so certain that all of this is just “fear porn” or a “sham” of some kind…don’t pay their nonproductive and perhaps remunerated redundancies any mind.  The whole point is to be aware of what is going on and try to survive it.

Be that “10th man” as outlined in the film World War Z, and consider what the herd has been conditioned not to consider, and it might improve your chances to survive what is coming: what the elites have planned and will trigger with a False Flag.

“No matter how improbable it may seem, the tenth man has to start thinking with the assumption that the other nine are wrong.”

The Zero Evidence World of US Criminal Misleaders

The Zero Evidence World of US Criminal Misleaders | zero-evidence | False Flags Government Government Corruption Propaganda War Propaganda World News

For decades now, the US political & military ruling class have offered zero evidence and flimsy pretexts to invade, attack and conduct mass murder. You want evidence? Here: have a big fat zero.

Zero evidence is required for the global bully, the US military, to do what it wants, when it wants, to whomever it wants. US political and military leaders (or as I prefer to call them, political and military misleaders) have one law – we do whatever the f*ck we want – in line with the black magic of Aleister Crowley, who declared that “do what thou wilt” was the whole of his law. The recent Trump Syria strike has taken their aggressive and criminal lawlessness to yet another level. Trump didn’t either bother to ask Congress for permission to attack another country, nor to put a case forward at the UN, nor to submit it to the scrutiny of international law, nor apparently to check with anyone except his own cadre of hawkish generals, Zionists and billionaires. Along with zero evidence, the US usually proffers pretexts such as “WMDs”, “chemical weapons” or simply just “he’s a dictator killing is own people”, all of which turn out to be lies to cover up the fact they have zero evidence. This phenomenon has been going on for literally decades. When is the international community going to stand up to the US and demand that enough is enough?

The Zero Evidence Phenomenon in Past US Aggressions

The history of USA aggression against other sovereign nations is egregious and long. Ever since the end of World War II, the US has taken it upon itself to be the world policeman – except it’s really the bandit posing as the sheriff, the tyrant posing as the protector and the violent terrorist posing as the righteous commander. Former US government official William Blum (who worked in the Department of State) and Dr. Zoltan Grossman have compiled lists of the 70+ nations which the US has messed with and attacked, by way of at least one of the following: foreign meddling & intervention, subversion, regime change, assassination, military strike or invasion. Here is a partial list of attacked nations up until 1999:

“China 1945-49, Italy 1947-48, Greece 1947-49, Philippines 1945-53, South Korea 1945-53, Albania 1949-53, Germany 1950s, Iran 1953, Guatemala 1953-1990s, Middle East 1956-58, Indonesia 1957-58, British Guiana/Guyana 1953-64, Vietnam 1950-73, Cambodia 1955-73, The Congo/Zaire 1960-65, Brazil 1961-64, Dominican Republic 1963-66, Cuba 1959-present, Indonesia 1965, Chile 1964-7, Greece 1964-74, East Timor, 1975-present, Nicaragua 1978-89, Grenada 1979-84, Libya 1981-89, Panama 1989, Iraq 1990s, Afghanistan 1979-92, El Salvador 1980-92, Haiti 1987-94, Yugoslavia 1999”

Since 2000, the following countries have been a victim of US aggression in one form or another:

“Afghanistan 2001-present, Yemen 2002, Philippines 2002-?, Colombia 2003-?, Iraq 2003-present, Liberia 2003, Haiti 2004-5, Pakistan 2005-?, Somalia 2006-?, Syria 2008-present, Yemen 2009, Libya 2011-present”

These lists are incomplete. There are more nations that have suffered US aggression which are not on these lists. Every single nation in the world has to either kowtow to the US, befriend it and fight alongside it in its stupid, ugly and violent wars, and submit to allowing US military bases on its sovereign soil – or else be aligned against it, be branded a “rogue state” by the MSM and live in constant fear that the US and its cronies will one day invade (a realistic and even probable outcome). There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground.

How exactly is this not world conquest? How exactly is the US not a sprawling empire which does whatever it wants, puts its military bases wherever it wants and invades whomever it wants? It’s an Empire, not a Republic. The republic has been dead for a long time now. The US is run by the New World Order – and they want it all. All.

The Zero Evidence World of US Criminal Misleaders | US-aggression-479x319 | False Flags Government Government Corruption Propaganda War Propaganda World News

US aggression has been relentless and unstoppable ever since the end of WWII.

Some Particularly Egregious Examples of Zero Evidence

Some appalling and atrocious examples of this “we do whatever we want” US foreign policy include the Vietnam War, which was started by the zero evidence Gulf of Tonkin incident (a false flag op of course), where there was literally zero evidence because there were literally zero Vietnamese ships involved. The US ships shot at empty space on the ocean and claimed they were being attacked! Then, in the false flag event of the millennium (9/11) there was zero evidence that Bin Laden ever did it, as the FBI tacitly admitted by not charging him with any crime. In the aftermath of 9/11, we were blessed with the wonderful and fake War on Terror™ (dreamt up by Zionist and neocon think tanks, including mass murderer and Israeli misleader Benjamin Netanyahu).

With the masses bamboozled by the neverending and impossible-to-win War on Terror, US misleader Colin Powell stepped up to the UN with zero evidence (in the form of a vial of powder) in support of invading a sovereign nation (Iraq). This time around the lie was WMDs. Later on in 2011, US misleader Obama stepped up to claim that a “dictator” (i.e. a legitimate leader named Gaddafi) was “killing his own people” (despite the fact that Libyans had a higher standard of living than all its surrounding neighbor nations in Africa). Thanks to the US and NATO invasion, Libya has become a hotbed of mayhem, terrorism, civil war and even now a center of slave trading. The truth is that it was only invaded because its leader stood up to US hegemony and tried to go against the petrodollar, but you wouldn’t know it if you listened to the MSM and the NGOs of George Soros (like Avaaz) who screamed for humanitarian intervention (aggressive invasion with no lawful basis under the pretext of saving innocent lives). Then in 2013, US misleader Obama again stepped up to claim that another “dictator” (i.e. an elected leader named Assad) was killing his own people with “chemical weapons” (despite the fact that UN investigators found zero evidence to back up this claim and instead found evidence that it was the US-backed rebels using them).

The Zero Evidence World of US Criminal Misleaders | zero-evidence-2-479x319 | False Flags Government Government Corruption Propaganda War Propaganda World News

Above: exactly this much evidence.

“Proof At a Distance”

Fast forward to 2017, and we have a different puppet in the White House, but the zero evidence phenomenon, and US military psychopathy, remain the same. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who like Vladimir Putin, has shown himself to be very level headed in face of extreme and repeated US-UK-Israeli-NATO provocation, talked about the zero evidence phenomenon at a recent press conference where he was discussing the Syria matter with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State. Lavrov said:

” … accusations that are being made in respect to the Syrian government, come exclusively from those who have ‘proof at a distance’ … Another example, another dictator: Saddam Hussein, who was hanged after an invasion. We all know how it ended. I think Tony Blair said publicly that the while thing was a fake. All the reasons behind the invasions of Iraq … So experiments of these sorts, based on an obsession wth some kind of dictator, regime change of a totalitarian or authoritarian leader – we have already seen. We know all too well how it ends. Positive examples, when a dictator was removed and then everything went great – I don’t recall. If they exist, I would be grateful if you would let me know.”

One has to wonder how much longer the blatant warmongering and aggression can go on before enough people wake up to it. How much longer will the US military (tool of the international banksters and the New World Order) be able to literally get away with murder by offering zero evidence and flimsy pretexts? Will enough nations in the international community, as well as enough Americans themselves, stand up to the bullying American political and military leadership and force these tyrants to look in the mirror, so they can see themselves for the lying psychopaths that they are?

Is Trump Heading for War on Iran?

Is Trump Heading for War on Iran? | trump-military | Government Military Trump War Propaganda

Neocons infesting Washington and Israel, along with AIPAC, want pro-Western puppet governance replacing the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Will hawkish Trump administration generals given warmaking authority attack the country?

On January 3, ahead of his inauguration, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D. FL) introduced  HJ Res. 10: Authorization of Use of Force Against Iran Resolution.

It calls for “us(ing) the Armed Forces of the United States as the President determines necessary and appropriate in order to achieve the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

“The United States must do all that is necessary to ensure that all of Iran’s pathways to obtaining a nuclear weapon are blocked.”

So far, neither house passed the measure. Trump remains hostile to Tehran. Before his sacking, National Security Advisor Michael Flynn put Iran “on notice.”

In early February, the Trump administration imposed new illegal sanctions on Tehran. At the time, Defense Secretary Mattis lied, calling it the world’s “biggest state sponsor of terrorism.”

Days later, Trump repeated the outrageous accusation, saying “they’re the world’s top sponsor of terrorism, and we’re not going to stop until that problem is properly solved.”

During his mid-February White House meeting with Netanyahu, he falsely accused Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons, vowing he’ll never permit it. He repeatedly denounced the landmark nuclear deal.

On April 17, AIPAC published a “timeline of (fabricated Iranian) malign behavior” following the nuclear deal.

It maliciously calls Iran “the greatest long-term threat to US and Israeli interests in the Middle East” – repeating the canard about it being “the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”

“Counter Iran’s regional aggression,” it urges, wanting hardline administration and administration actions.

On April 18, in a  letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, Secretary of State Tillerson lied, saying “Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror, through many platforms and methods.”

“President Donald J. Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the JCPOA is vital to the national security interests of the United States.”

“When the interagency review is completed, the administration looks forward to working with Congress on this issue.”

Anti-imperial intellectual Jean Bricmont believes if “Trump wants to assuage his opposition, he will have to (wage) a full war with Syria and maybe Iran.”

“Zionist-neocon” influence infests his administration. Warmaking is prioritized, “aggression…viewed positively,” anti-war activism heavily criticized.

“The West has fallen in some sort of madness,” he stressed. “We are in genuine decline.”

Candidate Trump preached noninterventionism. President Trump escalated Bush/Cheney/Obama wars.

His hostility toward Pyongyang risks nuclear war on the Korean peninsula. His geopolitical agenda toward Russia and China is confrontational.

Last Wednesday, he said US relations with Moscow are at an “all-time low.” Washington bears full responsibility, he failed to explain.

He’s waging naked aggression in multiple theaters. Will he attack North Korea and/or Iran next?

Is confrontation with Russia and China coming? Is eventual nuclear war inevitable? Is humanity doomed because of Washington’s imperial madness?

Trump’s EPA Chief Begins Rolling Back Obama’s Methane Emission Rule

Trump’s EPA Chief Begins Rolling Back Obama’s Methane Emission Rule | donald-trump2 | Environment EPA Politics

(image: AFP)

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt said Wednesday that the agency will repeal the Obama administration’s rules limiting methane gas emissions.The move would roll back regulations meant to drastically curb methane emissions from new oil and gas wells. Its stated purpose is to reduce the effects such emissions have on climate change — scientists say methane is one of the primary drivers of global warming.

Pruitt said in a press statement that the move would show that the EPA is following “through with President Donald Trump’s energy independence executive order,” an order the president signed in March.

“American businesses should have the opportunity to review new requirements, assess economic impacts and report back, before those new requirements are finalized,” Pruitt wrote in a letter to the American Petroleum Institute, among others.

Creating War While Leading Through Opposition! (VIDEO)

 Creating War While Leading Through Opposition! (VIDEO) | Donald-Trump-is-sending-US-ground-troops-to-Kuwait-to-fight-ISIS-594991 | CIA Government Corruption Mainstream Media Multimedia Propaganda US News

Fake News Media is “the enemy of the American People.” –President Donald Trump

There is less than 21% approval rating for the American media.  The reason is that people in this country understand that it is nothing more than fake and contrived news! Yet, they remain in the present, continuing to lie and to further their agenda by promulgating propaganda, as well as driving support for Donald Trump, as a leader of the opposition. The more the media attacks him, the more support that he garners.

Those pulling the strings behind the corrupt politicians knew that Hillary Clinton never had the support of the American people anymore than John McCain had running against Barrack Hussein Obama.  Sad to say, it took the American people 8 years to figure out that he did everything opposite of what he promised. It was an easy fix.

Fake News now seems to apply to those who are for the Law and the United States Constitution while they expose corruption wherever it may be, even when it hits their favorite politicians. The enemies of America are thankful for people that remain ignorant of their enumerated laws (Hosea 4:6).  So far, the majority of the American people have been very accommodating.

“How fortunate for governments that people never think.” –Adolph Hitler

I reported earlier this year, 70 years of CIA propaganda and corruption, and how disinformation is exactly what they have been spewing out of the CIA for a long time, not only in our country, but in other countries, as well.

Dr. Udo Ulfkotte came out in 2016 exposing the CIA by stating the following:

“The entire mainstream media is totally fake!”

“Taught to lie, to betray the people and not to tell the truth to the public.”

“The CIA gets control over all of the majority of journalists.”

“CIA’s primary mission is to collect, analyze, evaluate, and disseminate foreign intelligence to assist the President and senior U.S. government policymakers in making decisions relating to national security.”

Dr. Ulfkotte dropped dead inside of a year of making those claims.

If you don’t believe what he said, then you deserve what you have coming.

What they say that they do and what they actually are doing are two different stories. The fruit of the CIA has been war, world destabilization, media propaganda, murder, bribery, etc. Listen to former CIA agent John Stockwell:

“It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize the American people to hate, so we will let the establishment spend any amount of money on arms. ….”

Of course, they have been in cahoots with the military industrial complex, which President Eisenhower warned Americans about back in January 1961.

The CIA has become a propaganda outlet.

We can see what former CIA Director William Casey said when reinforcing John Stockwell’s statement:

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American people believe is false.”

The media cannot be trusted, and most of us agree on that (Psalm 101:3).

“If you are not careful, the newspapers (The Media) will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

So, how is it that when their favorite politician moves into the White House, all of a sudden, the things that he does, regardless if they are constitutional (legal) or not, as long, (as he has on your favorite jersey) all is accepted? This is exactly what is happening in America.  Once again, it’s a different President, but the same illegal and unconstitutional policies and agenda moves forward. However, as long as you like him, that is all that matters. Where have America’s principles gone? (Jeremiah 5:21)

“Kings will be tyrants from policy, when subjects are rebels from principle.” –Edmond Burke

Americans must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles (Psalm 119:89).

“For a people that value its privileges above its principles soon loses both.” –President David Eisenhower

Now, we have Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agreeing as to what should be done with Syria.  Yet, Donald Trump promised a special prosecutor to investigate her for her crimes against “We the People.” He launched 59 Tomahawks in Syria, but refuses to bring forth “the rule of law” concerning corruption here at home? How do they attempt to justify their aggression, they tell you that they have chemical weapons that could be used against us.  Apparently, Americans did not learn that inciting the people to war first comes with a threat regardless if it is legitimate or not. Remember Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq under the Bush administration that could never be verified?

That was before Donald Trump became the president, and after he told the American people that they “owed her [Hillary Clinton] a major debt of gratitude” for her service to our country.

How many scandals are exposed concerning these corrupt politicians like that of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and now that Donald Trump is the president, they now agree. Are the flags going up yet?

And to take one step further, Trump’s assault on Syria was praised by world leaders.  Before he was the president, a majority of these “world leaders” were attacking him.  Now that he is the president, they are praising him.

There you have it.  The same world leaders who have been used to lie, steal, kill, sell their people out and wage war across the globe are in concert praising the new President of the United States of America.

How about holding Donald Trump to his own promises when it comes to dealing with corruption inside our borders rather than dealing with corruption outside America? First things first, after all, isn’t that what Donald Trump promised to do? (Psalm 94:16)

How is it that you now believe the media that has been lying to you for so long?  (Romans 1:18)

This is pro-wrestling at its very worst.

Are they now telling you the truth because it is Donald Trump who is the president?  Hypocrites!  Again, isn’t Donald Trump the one that has called out American media resources as “Fake News Media” and the “Enemy of the American people?” America, this is leading through opposition.

As more troops are sent to another war, remember, it will not be Donald Trump’s young men and woman that will fight that war.  It will be our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, neighbors and children that will fight these unconstitutional wars.

“The man who can look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of his country is not fit for public trust.” -President Millard Fillmore

What is it that Trumps administration is not telling you?

Let a former United States Marine tell you what the American media will not.

Another Canadian journalist exposed the lies of the Western media and the US about the war in Syria.

Hopefully, this will sum up the whole of what I am saying for those who have not learned from the past.

Every one of these warmongers claimed to be Christians (Matthew 7:16; 2 Corinthians 11:14).

  • President Jimmy Carter: El-Salvador, Guatemala, Angola, and Afghanistan
  • President Bill Clinton, Balkans, Iraq, Sudan, Rwanda.
  • President George Bush Sr. Gulf war, Panama, Somalia,
  • President George Bush Jr. Iraq, Afghanistan
  • President Barrack Hussein Obama, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Ukraine

Remember, war is the rule of force. Peace is the reign of law.

When was it America’s job to police the world?

“We Americans have no commission from God to police the world.”

“The Law…Expressed in orderly constitutional methods, is the only King to which we bow.” –President Benjamin Harrison

Furthermore, how many of these above “wars” were constitutional?

America, do you wonder why you are so hated by other countries?  You are hated because of what you allow your representative government to do to other countries, in many cases without provocation.

The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our Republican system is worthy of emulation.

America, when are you going to figure this out? (Psalm 11:3)

US Military Madness

US Military Madness | USA-Empire-Imperial-War | Military Trump US News War Propaganda

WW I French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau was right, saying: “War is too important to be left to the generals.”

Trump delegated warmaking to neocon hawkish generals, favoring belligerence over diplomacy – heading toward escalated war on Syria along with possibly striking North Korea preemptively.

Trump’s geopolitical agenda risks confrontation with multiple countries. It risks nuclear war in Europe and East Asia.

Russia warned it’ll down US warplanes and missiles if its personnel in Syria are endangered. US policymakers and Pentagon officials know it.

So far, they’ve restrained their actions to avoid confrontation with Russia. Following the US attack on Syria’s Shayrat airbase, do Trump and hawkish administration officials feel emboldened to escalate war for regime change?

Has the die been cast? Is another false flag planned as pretext for more aggressive attacks, risking direct confrontation with Russia?

Did the Mother of All Bombs (MOAB) dropped on Afghanistan for the first time in combat anywhere signal escalated US aggression in multiple theaters?

Was it a show of force for this purpose? Russia has a weapon nicknamed the Father of All Bombs, claimed to be four times more powerful than America’s MOAB, with twice the blast radius, affecting around a 2-mile area in circumference.

A bomb this powerful could destroy Chicago’s loop, including everything up to where I live two miles north of center city, a frightening prospect.

East Asia tensions are rising with the deployment of the USS Carl Vinson strike group off North Korea’s coast.

Its Vice Minister Han Song-ryol warned Washington against provoking his country militarily, saying “(w)e will go to war if they choose.”

“If the US comes with reckless military maneuvers then we will confront it with the DPRK’s preemptive strike.”

“We’ve got a powerful nuclear deterrent already in our hands, and we certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a US preemptive strike.”

His remarks followed the Trump administration’s possible military option to counter Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic missile capability.

It could come ahead of or following a possible nuclear test to commemorate Kim Il-sung’s 105th anniversary on Saturday, North Korea’s founder.

According to Han, “(t)hat is something that our headquarters decides. At a time and at a place where the headquarters deems necessary, it will take place.”

He blamed Trump administration officials for rising tensions, including provocative US/South Korean military exercises and deploying the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group close to its border.

Also a Tuesday Trump tweet, saying “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! USA.”

“Trump is always making provocations with his aggressive words,” said Han. “It’s not the DPRK but the US and Trump that makes trouble.”

“The (North Korean) problem will be taken care of,” Trump blustered. Does he have “decapitation strikes” in mind?

Will he recklessly attack North Korea, risking a nuclear response with thousands of US forces in harm’s way?

China warned against it. So did South Korea. Japan wants to be consulted before any military action.

Trump’s possible North Korea solution may be far worse than the so-called “problem” he cites.

On April 12, China’s government-connected Global Times headlined “Is North Korea nuclear crisis reaching a showdown” – what Beijing very much wants avoided?

“Washington’s latest threat to Pyongyang is more credible given its just launched missile attack at an air base in Syria,” said GT.

“The Korean Peninsula has never been so close to a military clash since the North conducted its first nuclear test in 2006.”

Another on its Saturday Day of the Sun Kim Il-sung commemoration would be its sixth. “Pyongyang hopes its gamble will work, but all signs point to the opposite direction,” said GT.

China supports resolving the North Korean issue diplomatically, GT saying “(i)f the US takes unilateral action, it will win little international support.”

Beijing doesn’t oppose Pyongyang’s “tough stance,” provided it halts provocative nuclear and ballistic missile tests – risking unacceptable war on the Korean peninsula.

Facial Recognition is Coming to US Airports, Fast-Tracked by Trump

Facial Recognition is Coming to US Airports, Fast-Tracked by Trump | facial-recognition-surveillance | Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Surveillance US News

Most Americans have seemingly convinced themselves that as a society we will never pay a great price for going into so much debt and that we will never pay a great price for the horrendous crimes against humanity that we are committing on a daily basis.  If you don’t understand what I am talking about, just keep reading the rest of this article.  Just as there are consequences for our actions individually, so there are also consequences for our actions as a society.  And although our national day of reckoning has been put off for quite some time, when it does finally arrive the pain is going to be absolutely unimaginable.

Just recently, I was astounded to learn that the total amount of credit card debt in the United States has crossed the trillion dollar mark.  It boggles my mind that so many Americans could be so foolish, because credit card debt is one of the worst forms of debt in existence, and financial experts all over the country have spent an extraordinary amount of time and energy trying to get this message across to people.

But even though people know that going into credit card debt is bad, they just keep on doing it anyway.  We have become a “buy now, pay later” society that gives very little consideration to long-term consequences.

On a national level, we are now nearly 20 trillion dollars in debt, and a historic showdown over government spending and debt threatens to absolutely paralyze the federal government at the end of this month.  At this point many believe that it will be virtually impossible for Congress to avoid a government shutdown on April 29th, and once it begins Donald Trump’s entire agenda will come to a complete and total crashing halt until the crisis is resolved.  The following comes from David Stockman

In the meanwhile, everything else — health care reform, tax cuts, infrastructure — will become backed-up in an endless queue of legislative impossibilities. Accordingly, there will be no big tax cut in 2017 or even next year. For all practical purposes Uncle Sam is broke and his elected managers are paralyzed.

The Treasury will be out of cash and up against a hard stop debt limit of $19.8 trillion in a matter of months. But long before that there will be a taste of the Shutdown Syndrome on April 28 owing to the accumulating number of “poison pill” “riders” to the CR.

These include the virtual certainty of riders to the House bill to “defund” Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities. Other extraneous amendments will also possibly include funds demanded by the White House to start the Mexican Wall, enhance deportations and fund some of Trump’s $54 billion defense increase.

I am so glad that Stockman mentioned Planned Parenthood, because the decision whether or not to continue funding Planned Parenthood is going to be one of the central issues of this upcoming crisis.

Currently, the U.S. government gives Planned Parenthood roughly $500,000,000 a year.  By law, none of that money is supposed to be used to provide abortions, but everyone knows what the real deal is.

Some Planned Parenthood clinics do provide other services, but at the end of the day Planned Parenthood’s core business is abortion.  In fact, since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973 they have killed far more babies than anyone else in the United States by a very wide margin.

And for decades, the U.S. government has been the number one source of funding for Planned Parenthood.  In fact, there are questions as to whether or not Planned Parenthood would be able to continue as a viable business without money from the federal government.

Over the years, when members of Congress have voted to shower Planned Parenthood with hundreds of millions of dollars a year, they have not done it in the heat of the moment.  Rather, their votes have been the result of cold, calculated decision-making processes.

In other words, the members of Congress that have been voting to keep funding Planned Parenthood year after year have the blood of millions of dead children on their hands, and there is very little difference between them and Facebook killer Steve Stephens.

When Stephens broadcast the cold-hearted murder of a 74-year-old man on Facebook on Sunday, he instantly became a worldwide celebrity.  And even though most people in the country have now seen his face, he continues to somehow elude authorities.

What Stephens has done is absolutely horrific, and when he is finally caught he will pay greatly for his crimes.

Just like Stephens, America is on the run today.  We keep thinking that we will never have to pay a price for the tens of millions of children that we have killed, and our government continues to fund the slaughtering of the innocents that goes on every single day in this nation.

But now Congress is going to be given one more chance to make the right decision.

The Republicans have control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.  They have the power to defund Planned Parenthood, but it is going to take a tremendous amount of resolve.

That is because under the current rules it is going to take 60 votes to get a spending agreement through the Senate, and so the Republicans will need at least 8 Democratic votes to get any bill to Trump’s desk.

Sadly, the Democrats are pledging to stretch out a government shutdown indefinitely if Republicans try to defund Planned Parenthood.

So what will the Republicans do?  Well, they could change the rules in the Senate to require only a simple majority vote on spending bills, and that would essentially be the “thermonuclear option”.

Or they could give in, but if they do that it would likely mean that Planned Parenthood will never be defunded, because the Republicans will never have a better opportunity than they do right now.

And I have a feeling that is what is going to happen.  I have a feeling that the Republicans are going to give in at some point and agree to keep giving Planned Parenthood half a billion dollars a year.

If that is indeed what happens, both the Democrats and the Republicans that help pass such a bill will be cold-blooded killers just like Facebook killer Steve Stephens, only those Democrats and those Republicans will have far more blood on their hands than Stephens does.

Most people do not realize this, but without a doubt this is one of the most critical moments in modern American history.  And if the funding of Planned Parenthood continues, I have a feeling that is going to mean that our national day of reckoning is much closer than most people would dare to imagine.

If we do not stop what we are doing, someday our crimes will catch up to us, and the debt that we will owe at that point will be far beyond what we can bear to pay.

Preemptive US Strike on North Korea Imminent?

Preemptive US Strike on North Korea Imminent? | Donald-Trumps-warning-to-North-Korea | Military Politics Trump War Propaganda

(image: Zero Hedge)

Last week NBC News said the Trump administration “is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced (it’s) about to follow through with (another) nuclear weapons test, (according to) multiple senior US intelligence officials…”

Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear weapons test could come Saturday – commemorating Kim Il-sung’s 105th birthday, the nation’s founder.

The USS Vinson aircraft carrier strike group is positioned off North Korea’s coast, able to launch cruise missile and aerial attacks.

Guam-based US heavy bombers could be used, NBC News said, adding a “US strike could include missiles and bombs, cyber and special operations on the ground.”

Center for Strategic and International Studies Korea chair analyst Victor Cha lied, claiming Pyongyang’s leadership “has shown absolutely no sign or interest in diplomacy or dialogue (on) this issue.”

For decades, North Korea sought normalized relations with America and other nations, its good faith efforts rebuffed.

Its government justifiably fears another US-led war on its territory – why it chose to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, hoping to deter another hugely destructive war.

NBC News cited unnamed sources, saying Washington “is aware that simply preparing an attack, even if it will only be launched if there is an ‘imminent’ North Korean action, increases the danger of provoking a large conflict.”

According to an unnamed senior US intelligence official, the stakes are “high…We are trying to communicate our level of concern and the existence of many military options to dissuade the North first.”

“It’s a feat that we’ve never achieved before, but there is a new sense of resolve here.”

China sent its top nuclear negotiators to Pyongyang to try heading off potential disaster, said NBC News.

On Tuesday, the Kremlin said Moscow is “gravely concerned about Washington’s plans regarding North Korea, considering hints about the unilateral use of a military scenario.”

On Friday, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi “urge(d) all parties to refrain from inflammatory or threatening statements and deeds to prevent the situation on the Korean Peninsula from becoming irreversible.”

“On the Korean peninsula, it is not the one who espouses harsher rhetoric or raises a bigger fist that will win,” he added.

If nuclear war on the Korean peninsula erupts, everyone loses.
