Who does the US Congress care about more....Israel or the USA???

Jewish cardinals slotted into Congress to serve Israeli interests? :D :D


Anybody ever get the idea they are being played???


Russia is the least of your worries, yet its consumed the last 2 years of your news cycle.

How convenient.

Whatabout that 500Ib elephant with the Star of David painted on its forehead over there in the corner with its trunk in your coffers??

Free healthcare in Israel, thankyouverymuch!



Brainwashing appears to have been a massive success over there.

We are almost at the 60th anniversary of Eisenhower's military industrial complex quote:

So is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

Sure thing partner. I know that. I've quoted it before.

But there has been a massive shift ..... to a point now where you have the official Twitter of The White House posting an advert for Lockheed Martin with funky music, a speech by the CEO and shots of the THAAD missile system used to kill people.


Like the veil was lifted and they don't care anymore.

So yeah...only just now.

What was that word jjtwwt used.... maybe too nuanced?

George Nader, prominent Mueller report witness, charged with child sex trafficking, on top of original transportation of child porn and bestiality charges after photos found on his phone.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news ... ing-charge

His name is mentioned over 100 times in the Mueller Report.


Speaking of which, given your medias silence when it suits their agenda, it would be remiss of me not to tell you about Judge Dabney Friedrich and how on 1st July she ordered Mueller to stop pretending he had proof that the Russian government was behind the Internet Research Agency’s supposed attempt to interfere via social media in the 2016 election.

This has seriously drymounted with Muellers House testimony on * cough* Russiagate *cough*, resulting, although they are not admitting it, in an extension from 17 th July to the 24th. whilst Mueller and the Dems regroup and figure out how to handle this clearly unwanted awkward reality !!

https://www.law.com/nationallawjournal/ ... 0619201736

Muellers other major accusation, other than the Russian Govt meddled in your election conspiracy , was that Russia hacked the DNC servers.

Given that CrowdStrike, the controversial cybersecurity firm that the Democratic National Committee *cough* chose over the FBI *cough* in 2016 to examine its compromised computer servers, never produced an un-redacted or final forensic report for the government because the FBI never required it to, things are looking decidedly wobbly there too!!

No wonder Mueller hoped to escape further questioning.

Looking forward to the 24th. And a lot of squirming. :D

Remember Trump stood, in part, to bring the US and Russia closer?

This sordid conspiracy you all fell for for two years got its desired outcome; that at no cost can the US and Russia ever be friends, so in that sense it has been a major success story for the Warmongers.

Hey, gorkie and co, who stood strong in their steadfast belief, albeit wrong, that the Russians had dared meddle in your 2018 American election?

Literally the opening line of the Mueller report:

The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.

That's what she said

Talking with the rallygoers, I couldn’t find one who faulted Trump for demonizing the freshman representatives, all four of whom are American citizens, calling on them to leave the United States and return to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” A few conceded that Trump occasionally fires off an inappropriate tweet, but said his accomplishments in office overshadow any offense. If anything, they said, his language springs from an authenticity they find refreshing. None of the people I spoke with considered his comments about the congresswomen racist.

And it’s not only the rally goers who talk about that fudge.

The minimum wage bill went in between the lines. The court ruling to uphold Trump’s dropping the mine pollution rule - between the lines. And many other things. All the talk is about Trump blasting the Democrats and being racist, as he is; Trump saying next time he will try to stop the chant if it were to ever happen again, while being racist as usual; Trump does his usual 180 and calls those who chanted patriots and blast democrats again, while being racist as usual; democrats stand united and call Trump a racist; republicans stand behind Trump and say he is not racist, as usually.

The strategy seems to be working though... For Trump.

Again, call him out and move on. Talk about the real issues: taxes, pollution, Iran, deficit, deregulation, etc. Talk some points that the media would pick up on because they aren’t really doing anyone any favours, except for the man himself. It does not seem to be a rocket science, alas... The problem is the economy is booming, people are working, markets close at a record every other day. Wait till the fed drops the rate and it will carry him all the way into 2020.

His base does not give a fudge about what Democrats talk about. Many “undecided voters” do, I assume, but I am sure it is not the first and second items on their priority list.

Also in between the lines, while tension with Iran rises, 500 US troops will be going to Saudi Arabia “to increase joint cooperation...”

Is anyone still waiting for the Khashoggi Act in the likes of Magnitsky Act or anything at all? We (Canada) at least sanctioned a dozen or two Saudis and froze their assets in Canada, even though they didn’t have any assets here, and made them inadmissible to Canada, even though they likely did not plan on visiting in the foreseeable future anyway. Think we are still debating whether to go ahead with a multi billion arms deal or not though (15 billion worth, if I recall correctly, but might be mistaken).
