Thought for the day
"Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind." -- George Orwell
Joseph Stalin’s Secret Police Chief Lavrentiy Beria is known forever for his famous line, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.”
Today this is the official motto of the Deep State, FBI, DOJ and Democrat-Socialist Party in America.
The Stasi-FBI and Joe Biden’s Department of Justice raided President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday in a 9-and-a-half hour siege on his historic compound.
During the raid the FBI forced Trump attorneys to sit OUTSIDE in the heat while they rummaged through every room in President Trump’s historic home.
The FBI stood with loaded guns outside President Trump’s home as they raided Mar-a-Lago for 9 hours.
The FBI agents from Florida and Washington DC spent several hours ransacking Mar-a-Lago in their fishing expedition.
The dirty FBI agents went through Melania Trump’s closet.
They searched EVERY ROOM — Likely bugging the place before they left.
Individuals around the world are speaking up against the Deep State FBI’s raid of the President of the United State’s home, Mar-a-Lago. It was the day America changed forever. We won’t forget this.
From the Israel National News, Alan Bergstein wrote an excellent summary of what happened when the FBI stormed President Trump’s home. Here’s an excerpt:
Mark the date in your memory; August 8, 2022. It will be recorded in history as the “Kristallnacht of American Democracy.” Basically the day similar in nature, to the German Nazis’ opening salvo of fascism, the beginning of the extermination of Jews and democracy, on November 9, 1938.
Yesterday was a sad day for all of patriotic Americans, as our former independent federal law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the Justice Department, now officially both under the singular control of the Democrat Party, raided the home of former President Trump and confiscated all of his personal data, without going through the legal processes of obtaining court orders to do so.
FBI Director Chris Wray decided to play the victim on Wednesday after facing backlash for launching a raid of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home.
Webmaster addition: Let's all feel bad for the Foolish Bumbling Idiots!
The IRS is hiring special agents who are willing to kill.
Webmaster addition: Well then, why not send all those new IRS agents to Afghanistan to recover the $80 billion in weapons Biden left behind, or into Ukraine to recover the 70% of weapons diverted into the black market? Oh, that's right; the Taliban and Ukrainians have GUNS and like to shoot back!
Let’s hope Merrick Garland’s search of Mar-a-Lago is based on more evidence than his indictment of the Louisville, Kentucky, police officers involved in the raid on Breonna Taylor’s house.
That passive construction I just used — “involved in the raid on,” instead of “who raided” — is not sloppy writing: It’s the facts. The officers who actually shot Taylor have not been charged, apparently on the flimsy grounds that they were being shot at when they fired.
Instead, our lunatic attorney general has indicted officers who prepared the affidavit used to obtain the warrant to search Taylor’s home. In the words of the indictment, the affidavit “contained information that was false, misleading and out-of-date … and the officers lacked probable cause for the search.”

Earlier today, I posted an op-ed written by a Boston city planner and climate change activist who advocates for bicycles to reduce climate emissions. She takes a trip to her bicycle mecca, Amsterdam, and meets with city planners to find out how they’ve made their city so bike-friendly. But slowly, the horrifying truth dawns on her: the Dutch bureaucrats build fast, big, cheaply, and beautifully by focusing on the greatest good for the greatest number (i.e., Dutchmen) rather than on Centering the Marginalized like American city planners have been trained to do, which is a big reason few things get built in America.
Readers have pointed out yesterday’s New York Times article about how Who? Whom? thinking has halted any progress on turning an abandoned bridge across the Anacostia River near the US Capitol into a park, but that’s a good thing because urban planners have been busy for 11 years trying to figure out how to prevent their planned park from causing gentrification.
The FBI director has called death threats against federal agents 'deplorable and dangerous' after supporters of Donald Trump used violent rhetoric online following the raid on the former President's Mar-a-Lago home.
Christopher Wray, who was appointed as the FBI's director in 2017, said 'violence' against the FBI and the Department of Justice employees is 'not the answer'.
Webmaster addition: But violence against Trump and Americans is perfectly fine!
A group of conservatives in the House of Representatives claimed on Wednesday that both the unannounced FBI search of Donald Trump's home and seizure of GOP Rep. Scott Perry's phone 'expose' the Biden administration's weaponization of the Justice Department.
Republicans have been reacting with outrage after the former president announced his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida was raided by federal agents on Monday, in an operation that appears to be related to documents sought by the National Archives.
Trump's party was further incensed on Tuesday when one of his top allies in Congress, House Freedom Caucus Chair Perry, revealed his phone was taken by three FBI agents who confronted him while Perry was traveling with family.
'We will not allow China to isolate Taiwan,' Pelosi said at a news conference, flanked by members of the congressional delegation she brought with her. 'They're not keeping us from going to Taiwan ...That was our purpose, to salute this thriving democracy.'
Pelosi defended the trip that has provoked Chinese ire and a slew of threats and military drills: 'Our purpose in going to Taiwan was to say that we have this strong relationship built on the status quo, which we support.'
Startling new satellite images have showcased the extent of the damage at a Russian air force base in Crimea after devastating explosions ravaged the site on Tuesday afternoon.
The broken and charred remains of several Russian fighter jets can be seen in the aftermath of the blasts which are believed to have damaged up to 20 aircraft and demolished ammunition storage facilities.
Russia denied any aircraft were damaged in Tuesday's blasts - or that any attack took place. More explosions were then reported last night at Zyabrovka airbase in the Homiel region of southern Belarus just 20 miles from the northern Ukrainian border, which has also been used by the Russian air force.
Again, officials tried to downplay the blasts - saying they were an accident caused by an aircraft engine fire.
The FBI paid visits to multiple Republicans in the Pennsylvania House and Senate Wednesday to look for information on Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Perry and his scheme to install alternate electors in 2020, according to a report.
On Monday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that a child died from serious wounds she suffered on August 6th, after the Israeli army bombarded the Um an-Nasr village in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
The Health Ministry said the child, Hanin Abu Qayda, 10, was seriously injured when the Israeli army fired missiles at a civilian car, killing her grandmother, Na’ama Mohammad Abu Qayda, 62, and wounding seven family members.
The family was preparing for the wedding of one of Hanin’s uncles and was driving toward the groom’s house when the army fired missiles at their car in the Um an-Nasr area in Beit Hanoun.
Hanin suffered various serious wounds, including the main artery in her leg, leading to various complications that resulted in her death despite all efforts to save her life.
The Department of Justice must respond to motions to unseal the warrant behind the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, the magistrate judge who approved the unprecedented search ordered Thursday.
Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who is believed to have signed the still-sealed FBI warrant approving the bureau’s Trump raid, said the DOJ must now “file a Response to the Motion to Unseal” following efforts by Albany-based news outlet the Times Union and the conservative advocacy group Judicial Watch requesting the DOJ make the warrant public.
Reinhart said the DOJ’s response may be filed “ex parte and under seal as necessary to avoid disclosing matters already under seal,” meaning that the full response may be secret but that “the Government shall file a redacted Response in the public record” too.
We are starting to get more details on what occurred during the FBI’s nearly 10-hour raid of Donald Trump’s home in Florida, though, it’s not the government that’s providing them. On Tuesday evening, Trump’s lawyer revealed that authorities didn’t even want to present a warrant, and when they finally did, the warrant had the probable cause sealed.
As to what was seized, the list is illuminating, and not in a good way for the FBI’s conduct. According to a report from The Washington Post, citing information leaked to them by the government (which says a lot on its own), the boxes taken were full of what would mostly be considered personal effects and mundane presidential records.
There were rumors many months ago that this is all that the National Archives was after. Not really important things related to national security or some such, which even still wouldn’t justify the raid, but scribblings on napkins and letters from heads of state. If this report is correct, that’s what the FBI carried out an unprecedented raid on a president for. 33,000 stolen emails put on an illegal server weren’t enough to raid Hillary Clinton, but the National Archives wanting a letter from Kim Jung Un was. The abuse of power is off the charts.
They will shoot and kill you over your $1,500 in taxes.
But the Bidens, the Pelosis, and every other Uniparty crook will never be touched.
As reported earlier today — President Trump declassified a binder on January 19th, 2021 that contains hundreds of pages about the Crossfire Hurricane scandal. It contains damaging information about the corrupt actors involved with our government. Two different DOJ Attorney General’s have defied President Trump’s direct lawful order to publish the binder in the Federal Register. It’s been 19 months as the DOJ defies the order, and every FOIA request to make it public. Can we now raid the homes of acting AG Monty Wilkinson, and Merrick Garland?
Kamala Harris Wednesday afternoon delivered remarks at the United Steelworkers Constitutional Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday spoke publicly for the first time since his jackbooted thugs raided Trump’s Florida residence.
Three people have died and at least 39 homes were damaged after an explosion in Evansville, Indiana Fire Department Chief Mike Connelly confirmed in a news conference on Wednesday.
“There could be other victims, we have not completed our search,” Connelly said, “The buildings are not yet safe to enter.”
“Initial survey of the damage is that 39 houses have been damaged from either severe to minor damage,” Connelly told reporters.
A structural collapse team was called in to survey buildings that were thought to be in danger of collapsing.
Multiple agencies are on the scene and authorities have asked residents to stay away from the area.
An investigation of the incident is underway Connelly added.
Now it’s conspiracy — they’ve made that something that should not even be entertained for a minute, that powerful people might get together and have a plan. Doesn’t happen. You’re a kook! You’re a conspiracy buff!” — George Carlin
“I don’t believe in conspiracy theories, except the ones that are true or involve dentists.” — Michael Moore
It’s not so much shooting the messenger as it is making everyone think the messenger is crazy and his or her message is automatically false. And crazy. And dangerous.
That’s the apparent goal of hundreds of mainstream articles, produced year after year, that denounce “conspiracy theories” and go to extreme lengths to discredit anyone who dares challenge the official narrative of any event. Points of view that venture outside of permissible boundaries are dismissed as the products of unbalanced minds.
Challenges are written off as being “bizarre,” “outlandish,” “pernicious,” or any one of a host of other exaggerated descriptors that reveal extreme bias. We’re told that the theories in question are false and that they were debunked years ago, as if making the claim is enough — no evidence required. What is offered as evidence usually comes in the form of quotes from some academic or other who is said to be an “expert” in the “psychology of conspiracy theories.”
MSNBC is in shambles.
Rachel Maddow, the network’s top host, is only hosting her show once a week while she’s off working on “other projects.” Her ratings have dropped significantly in her absence, as well.
Nicolle Wallace, a supposed “Republican,” has seen her ratings crater. In the last year, her show is down 6 percent in total viewership. Over two years, her show is down 32 percent.
However, far-left host Joy Reid is facing rumors that she may be on her way out. Reid’s show has plummeted in recent months and, in particular, since it first launched almost two years ago.
“The Reid Out,” which airs at 7 PM ET, did not break 950,000 total viewers.
For comparison, “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Fox News hit almost 2.3 million total viewers in the same time slot. CNN’s Erin Burnett came in third place with roughly 583,000 total cable news viewers.
Bill Benson's findings, published in "The Law That Never Was," make a convincing case that the 16th amendment was not legally ratified and that Secretary of State Philander Knox was not merely in error, but committed fraud when he declared it ratified in February 1913. What follows is a summary of some of the major findings for many of the states, showing that their ratifications were not legal and should not have been counted.
The 16th amendment had been sent out in 1909 to the state governors for ratification by the state legislatures after having been passed by Congress. There were 48 states at that time, and three-fourths, or 36, of them were required to give their approval in order for it to be ratified. The process took almost the whole term of the Taft administration, from 1909 to 1913.
Knox had received responses from 42 states when he declared the 16th amendment ratified on February 25, 1913, just a few days before leaving office to make way for the administration of Woodrow Wilson. Knox acknowledged that four of those states (Utah, Conn, R.I. and N.H.) had rejected it, and he counted 38 states as having approved it. We will now examine some of the key evidence Bill Benson found regarding the approval of the amendment in many of those states.
In Kentucky, the legislature acted on the amendment without even having received it from the governor (the governor of each state was to transmit the proposed amendment to the state legislature). The version of the amendment that the Kentucky legislature made up and acted upon omitted the words "on income" from the text, so they weren't even voting on an income tax! When they straightened that out (with the help of the governor), the Kentucky senate rejected the amendment. Yet Philander Knox counted Kentucky as approving it!
The federal government rests its authority to collect income tax on the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—the federal income tax amendment—which was allegedly ratified in 1913.
"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."
—The 16th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America
After an extensive year-long nationwide research project, William J. Benson discovered that the 16th Amendment was not ratified by the requisite three-fourths of the states and that nevertheless Secretary of State Philander Knox had fraudulently declared ratification.
It was a shocking revelation; it reached deep to the core of our American system of governance.
Article V of the U.S. Constitution defines the ratification process and requires three-fourths of the states to ratify any amendment proposed by Congress. There were fourty-eight states in the American Union in 1913, meaning that affirmative action of thirty-six was necessary for ratification. In February 1913, Secretary of State Philander Knox proclaimed that thirty-eight had ratified the Amendment.
In 1984 Bill Benson began a research project, never before performed, to investigate the process of ratification of the 16th Amendment. After traveling to the capitols of the New England states and reviewing the journals of the state legislative bodies, he saw that many states had not ratified. He continued his research at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.; it was here that Bill found his Golden Key.
This damning piece of evidence is a sixteen-page memorandum from the Solicitor of the Department of State, among whose duties is the provision of legal opinions for the Secretary of State. In this memorandum, the Solicitor lists the many errors he found in the ratification process.
These four states are among the thirty-eight from which Philander Knox claimed ratification:
- California: The legislature never recorded any vote on any proposal to adopt the amendment proposed by Congress.
- Kentucky: The Senate voted on the resolution, but rejected it by a vote of nine in favor and twenty-two opposed.
- Minnesota: The State sent nothing to the Secretary of State in Washington.
- Oklahoma: The Senate amended the language of the 16th Amendment to have a precisely opposite meaning.
