“Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction; to wit: by consolidation first and then corruption, its necessary consequence. The engine of consolidation will be the Federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments.” –Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Macon, 1821. ME 15:341
LM: Jefferson’s quote says it all. Whatever you think of him, he was a knowledgeable, student of history as well as, of human nature. Republics like Empires, come and go. And that’s all right.
But the individual with his or her principles, or lack thereof, remains.
With that in mind, I see no need or benefit in being an illusionary citizen supporting an illusionary Republic with an illusionary rule of law, any longer.
over and out! ;-)

The Gaping Holes of Russia-gate
Between Russia-gate and President Trump’s potential impeachment, Washington is blending the thrill of McCarthyism and the excitement of Watergate, as ex-U.S. intelligence officials Ray McGovern and William Binney explain.
By Ray McGovern and William Binney
Official Washington got to relive the excitement of Watergate in a “gotcha” moment after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. There were fond recollections of how righteous the major newspapers felt when condemning President Nixon over his “Saturday Night Massacre” firing of special prosecutor Archibald Cox.
Former FBI Director James Comey
But the overriding question from “this Russia thing, with Trump and Russia” — as President Trump calls it — is whether there is any there there. The President labeled it a “made-up story” and, by all appearances from what is known at this time, he is mostly correct.
A few days before Comey’s firing, the FBI Director reportedly had asked for still more resources to hunt the Russian bear for supposedly “interfering” with last year’s election to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump. And so the firing allowed the Watergate-recalling news outlets to trot out the old trope that “the cover-up is worse than the crime.”
But can that argument bear close scrutiny, or is it the “phony narrative” that Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn of Texas claims it to be? Cornyn quipped that, if impeding the investigation was Trump’s aim, “This strikes me as a lousy way to do it. All it does is heighten the attention given to the issue.”
Truth is, President Trump had ample reason to be fed up with Comey, in part for his lack of enthusiasm toward investigating actual, provable crimes related to “Russia-gate” — like the flood of sensitive national security leaks, such as the highly sensitive intercepted communications used to precipitate the demise of Trump aide Michael Flynn.

LM: Jan Irvin, Joe Atwill, friends and guests undertake some of the most comprehensive research into the topics they cover. Their investigations are exposing the who, in the “who is creating our culture”.
We may not agree with all of their conclusions but the team provide all the necessary citations as a starting point for your own research, if so desired.
And then, as Gary Hendershot says,”make up your own damn mind”.

LM: Wow CA. people. I didn’t know you adopted a Monarchy.
The Marxstream LA Times bashes Trump but it seems quite happy with this abuse of the people by His Majesty, King Jerry Brown. LOL
In all seriousness, I think it may be time for some action…
We hang Kings in Boston.;-)
Cali Governor Jerry Brown Slams “Free-Loading” Taxpayers For Opposing Higher Taxes
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,
excerpt from Zero Hedge article.
Amid this outrage, California Governor Jerry Brown defended the senator and the gas tax in a recent speech, during which he revealed how much disdain he has for middle class voters who are tired of being taxed to death
Republicans say budget cuts should be made to fund road maintenance. A failed GOP plan proposed last year would have tapped into cap-and-trade money used to lower greenhouse gas emissions, cut Caltrans positions and eliminated other positions that have been vacant. It identifies other funding sources, but doesn’t specify what programs would be cut if that money was diverted to roads.
Brown said the plan is unrealistic.
“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them,” Brown said, adding that the approved tax and fee hikes bring those charges to the level they were 30 years ago if adjusted for inflation. “They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit.”
Of course, it isn’t just a few Republican senators who don’t want the tax hike. Polls have shown that more than half of Californians oppose it. I suppose they’re a bunch of freeloaders right?
