Former Secret Service Agent Files RICO Suit Against Clintons , Soros, Podesta, Brock

Conspiracy theorists (and conspiracy factists) are running wild as infamously outspoken former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne has filed a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) suit against what some call the Democrat Deep State.

Defendants in the case include:

CLINTON FOUNDATION, CLINTON-GIUSTRA ENTERPRISE PARTNERSHIP, MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA, CORRECT THE RECORD, AMERICAN BRIDGE 21ST CENTURY, CITIZENS FOR RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICS IN WASHINGTON, SHAREBLUE, DAVID BROCK, WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON, HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON, GEORGE SOROS, JOHN PODESTA, JONATHAN WACKROW, JAN GILOOLY and CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE.

Quite a rogue’s gallery.

Here’s the summary of Byrne’s case…

For the past decade in which relevant predicate acts were corruptly carried out by the named defendants as “payback” for Plaintiff Gary Byrne’s role in the Clinton impeachment and his status as a “Clinton enemy” (for his temerity in telling the truth concerning obstruction of justice and gross abuse of power), along with their corrupt surrogates and collaborators (referenced individually and collectively as the “Enterprise”), David Brock and William and Hillary Clinton have been synonymous with criminal  behavior, malicious baseless attacks (using mainly the illicit and vicious defamatory tactics against  perceived political enemies (like Officer Gary Byrne, the Plaintiff here) of those willing to compensate  participants like Brock) – and coordinating by mail and wire to violate myriad Federal and State laws in the exploitation of Enterprise nonprofit entities they use for purely partisan purposes.

This Enterprise has taken such attacks to an unprecedented and chilling new level – involving illegal domestic human and electronic surveillance, and tradecraft such as “lures” run at Byrne in order to obstruct the Hillary Clinton e-mail and Clinton Foundation Investigations by the agencies of the Obama government, all against private citizens in order to assist Hillary Clinton become the 45th President of the United States, destroy Gary Byrne, and enrich themselves. According to investigations of the United States Congress, and as anticipated to emerge from numerous ongoing government investigations, Hillary Clinton and certain other Enterprise named and unknown named, and high-level surrogates, colluded with Russian intelligence (SVR and FSB) and a disgraced (and according to a referral from the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, a putative criminal) former British intelligence officer (Christopher Steele) to accomplish their illicit and unconstitutional objectives. These Enterprise defendants, surrogates and  participants have their opportunity to properly respond before a court they knowingly misled many times using the most powerful counterintelligence tools available. Let them do so now.

Ten years ago, defendant Brock’s malfeasance became more precisely organized in the Enterprise, and thus fully weaponized, as he joined forces with former president William Jefferson Clinton (“William Clinton” or “President Clinton”), Hillary Rodham Clinton and funder George Soros (“Soros”), and at various stages of the illegal Enterprise, the other defendants named here. They, and the Enterprise they formed to control the Democratic Party, took illicit advantage of a previously inviolate structural arrangement (between all three branches of our government) codified in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (“FISA”) by arranging for payment through smear merchants Fusion GPS to the Russian SVR and FSB and British (former) agent Christopher Steele (“Steele”). To abolish their enemies, in other words, the Enterprise defendants were willing to defy all legal and constitutional dictates – including certain actors within the Obama Department of Justice ineffably misleading Article III colleagues resident in this very Court.

This is sedition, bordering on treason, and patently illegal.

The presiding judge – Paul L. Friedman – is a Bill Clinton appointee.

Of course this is a civil filing, which is something anyone can file for anything, so don’t start the ‘lock her up’ chants quite yet.

Clinton Soros RICO by Zerohedge on Scribd

As a reminder, here is Mr.Byrne’s view of Clinton et al. from two years ago…

Following the release of former secret service officer Gary Byrne’s book in 2016, Clinton campaign officials have tried to play down his accusations with ad hominum attacks at Byrne as opposed to denying any of his allegations. However, as his book gains traction, RealClearPolitics reports that during his appearance of FOX News’ Hannity show, Byrne talked Hillary Clinton’s temperament, her “terrified staff,” Bill Clinton carrying on affairs, drug use in the White House and more with host Sean Hannity. Byrne said Clinton was feared by her staff and was notorious for her yelling. Byrne told Hannity that she has “blown up” at him and other Secret Service agents…

“She gets angry at things that are policy issues that, you know, take time to fix, and she’s got this attitude where she wants things fixed right now, immediately. She screams and yells at people,”

“There’s many examples that I site in my book where she blows up at people,” Byrne said. “Like I’ve said, she has blown up at me before, and agents, and her staff. At one time, I saw her staff so afraid to tell her about a mistake that was made. They weren’t upset about the waste of the mistake, ordering the wrong invitations, they were terrified that someone was going to have to tell Hillary Clinton that there was a mistake made.”Byrne says Clinton’s behavior during his tenure in the Secret Service proved to him that she does not have the temperament for the Oval office.BYRNE: I feel so strongly that people need to know the real Hillary Clinton and how dangerous she is in her behavior. She is not a leader. She is not a leader.

SEAN: She does not have the temperament?

BYRNE: She doesn’t have the temperament. She didn’t have the temperament to handle the social office when she was First Lady, she does not have the temperament.

SEAN: She’s dishonest.

BYRNE: She’s dishonest, she habitually lies, anybody that can separate themselves from their politics and review her behavior over the past 15 years…

SEAN: You’re going to be accused of being political.

BYRNE: Absolutely I’m sure I will be, I have already and it’s not.

SEAN: And what’s your answer?

Byrne: It’s got nothing to do as politics.

Byrne talked wrote about then-President Bill Clinton’s behavior, accusing him of carrying on multiple affairs and gave his perspective on the Monica Lewinsky affair and the scandal as it was happening. Byrne talked about several different affairs and how the Secret Service was expected to clean up after him.

HANNITY: How many women do you know, for sure, that he had affairs with in the Oval Office?

BYRNE: In the White House complex? I’d say easily three, maybe four, that I know of.

HANNITY: And you could see Monica Lewinsky from a mile away?

BYRNE: Sure. Sure.

HANNITY: You knew she wanted to be near him.

BYRNE: She was certainly manipulated some of the staff, other officers, myself to find out where he was—

HANNITY: She wasn’t manipulating if you saw through it.

BYRNE: Yeah, I agree. But I saw through it right away, but she was trying to place herself in his path, as he would move throughout the complex.

Byrne talks drug use in the White House:

HANNITY: Before I get into all the issues involving Bill and Hillary and what she knew and didn’t know and covering up and lying and you being put in the middle of all this. People use drugs the at the White House?

BYRNE: There were some issues. One of the ones I comment in my book, and I’m very careful not to tell too much about it because I don’t want — hopefully this person got on with their lives and lived a healthy life. But there was one particular staff member that they had come in in the morning, and they’d be so beat up and exhausted looking, worn out, exhausted to the point where they couldn’t be seen saying good morning. And they’d go in their office and go the bathroom and come out of the bathroom completely elevated and happy and smiling.

HANNITY: It was obvious you thought coke was being used?

BYRNE: I did. And later on, I was told that this particular person actually, they did something similar to an intervention and got her help and got her to a clinic, and I never did see her again. But I understand she did all right.

Arming Terrorists: A High Crime Against Humanity

Arming Terrorists: A High Crime Against Humanity



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



Article 7 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) defines crimes against humanity as “acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack (including):



(a) Murder;



(b) Extermination;



(c) Enslavement;



(d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population;



(e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;



(f) Torture;



(g) Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;



(h) Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender as defined in paragraph 3, or other grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international law, in connection with any act referred to in this paragraph or any crime within the jurisdiction of the Court;



(i) Enforced disappearance of persons;



(j) The crime of apartheid;



(k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.



Washington created and supports ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups, used as imperial proxies where deployed – a diabolical scheme to advance its goal of unchallenged global dominance no matter the human cost.



So-called “moderate rebels” in Syria are cutthroat killer death squads, largely imported from scores of countries, responsible for committing high crimes of war and against humanity (as defined above), serving their imperial master, headquartered in Washington.



The US, NATO, Israel, the Saudis, Qataris, Turkey, and other rogue states actively arm these elements, as well as ISIS, al-Qaeda, and its Syrian al-Nusra offshoot, with heavy and light weapons, covertly and overtly.



Weapons and munitions supplied terrorists are trucked in cross-border, airdropped, and provided by other means.



What Obama’s regime began in Syria, Trump escalated. House and Senate legislation introduced early last year to stop arming terrorists went nowhere.



Supporting this scourge is a Nuremberg-level high crime, Washington the lead offender, accountability a nonstarter – the world community doing nothing to challenge its ruthless agenda.



Things fester and worsen. Another global war remains an ominous possibility. If waged with nuclear weapons, we’re all doomed.



Humans one day may be the only species ever to destroy itself, and everything else with it, if things go this far.



Addressing the 3rd UN Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All its Aspects, Syrian UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari called illicit trade in weapons to terrorist groups a hugely dangerous phenomenon, a high crime.



The US, Britain, France, other Western states, Israel, the Saudis, and other regional countries are spending billions of dollars to buy and transport weapons and munitions to elements used as imperial death squads, Jaafari explained.



They’re funding, financing and training them, using them as a proxy army, supplying them with chemical and other banned weapons, so-called White Helmets complicit in their high crimes.



Washington and Russia are worlds apart on Syria. On June 8, US Joint Chiefs Chairman General Joseph Dunford met with his Russian counterpart General Valery Gerasimov in Helsinki, Finland.



Discussion focused on Syria, actions in deescalation zones, and along border areas with Israel and Jordan. No agreement was reached.



Objectives of both countries remain far apart on Syria and most other issues. Russia is committed to achieving world peace and stability. Washington wages endless wars of aggression.



Its regimes under Republicans and undemocratic Dems consider peace an anathema notion, Syria one of many battlegrounds, more virtually sure to come.

China gets it right: ‘NATO aggression in Syria is really a war against Russia’

trump putin syria

    

Jinri Toutiao, one of China’s largest media agencies, has unveiled an article arguing that while the conflict in Syria might seem like a civil war between government and opposition forces, it is in reality “a deadly battle between Russia and NATO countries.”

According to the publication, Syria is of “great strategic importance”, and Russia’s deployment of troops to Syrian territory has thwarted foreign occupation and prevented more drastic bloodshed in Syria and beyond. “Otherwise, Syria would have been immediately occupied by the forces of other states or by anti-government troops. Then several extremist groups would go to the south of Russia,” the article says.

The publication also highlighted the fact that when the Russians became involved in the conflict, the situation turned favorable for Syrian troops.

Further, Jinri Toutiao pointed out that the United States, Britain and France have recently launched aggressive attacks on Syria, and the US aircraft carrier USS Harry Truman has entered the Mediterranean Sea.

“It may seem that the aim of this maneuver is to carry out a new air strike. However, the main goal is to block the way to Syria across the Black Sea: since Russia has no common land border with Syria, through the sea,” the article analyzed.

According to Chinese media, the NATO maneuvers in the Black Sea that took place in May also aimed to “put pressure on Russia.”

In other words, the Chinese media giant has a firm grasp on the geopolitics of the Syrian conflict and Russia-NATO confrontation. This is an important indication of China’s orientation. What’s more, other analysts, in addition to the Chinese agency, have added to the discussion, pointing out that although NATO leaders assure that their actions are not directed against Russia, their operations demonstrate the opposite reality.

In particular, columnist Ted Galen Carpenter of the US magazine The National Interest believes that US and NATO leaders need to “take a more realistic attitude” toward Russia.

“Any nation would find NATO’s behavior decidedly hostile and even threatening if it occurred within its borders,” the American analyst pointed out.

For Carpenter, if the West continues with such activities, this could lead to a failure of understanding and a “catastrophic confrontation.”

Methodists Bring Church Charges Against Jeff Sessions For Border Policy

More than 600 clergy and lay members of the United Methodist Church have signed a letter bringing church charges against fellow member Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the zero tolerance immigration policy that has resulted in the separation of undocumented children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The formal accusation, issued on Monday, charges Sessions with numerous violations of the denomination’s Book of Discipline, including child abuse, immorality, racial discrimination and, for his citation of Romans 13 to defend the policy, the dissemination of doctrines contrary to the standards of the UMC.  

Those who signed the complaint letter claim that Sessions’ “tremendous social/political power,” his role as a Sunday school teacher and the “severe and ongoing” effects of his actions compel them to call for accountability. 

“As members of the United Methodist Church, we deeply hope for a reconciling process that will help this long-time member of our connection step back from his harmful actions and work to repair the damage he is currently causing to immigrants, particularly children and families,” the letter states.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment directly on the church charges against Sessions. She said, “The AG’s comments on Scripture were not to justify the policy but in response to other criticism.”

In May, Sessions announced that the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security are aiming to prosecute 100 percent of cases of illegal border crossings, regardless of whether those involved are fleeing persecution or traveling with children. The U.S. government separated nearly 2,000 children from their parents in April and May as a result of this policy, placing the minors in shelters or with extended family members while their parents are prosecuted. 

Sessions has drawn widespread condemnation after using a chapter from the Bible to respond to religious critics of the policy. 

“Concerns raised by our church friends about separating families” are “not fair or logical,” he said in a speech in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.”

“I have given the idea of immigration much thought and have considered the arguments of our church leaders,” Sessions continued. “I do not believe Scripture or church history or reason condemns a secular nation-state for having reasonable immigration laws. If we have them, then they should be enforced.”

The United Methodist Church is the third-largest religious denomination in the U.S., with over 7 million lay members. Sessions is a member of a Methodist church in Mobile, Alabama, and attends services at another Methodist church in Virginia. HuffPost has reached out to the pastors of both congregations for comment but has not heard back.

According to United Methodist News, the denomination’s official news site, it’s rare for Methodists to bring formal charges against a layperson. Complaints that come up are typically resolved at the local level, after a member’s pastor and district superintendent offer counseling. If the complaint isn’t resolved, it’s possible for charges to result in a church trial and even expulsion. This has reportedly never happened in the church’s history.

The Rev. David Wright, a UMC pastor and chaplain at the University of Puget Sound in Washington state, was the primary organizer of the letter against Sessions. Wright told United Methodist News that he doesn’t want Sessions to be expelled from the denomination but is hoping the charges result in Sessions’ being called in for pastoral counseling. 

“I hope his pastor can have a good conversation with him and come to a good resolution that helps him reclaim his values that many of us feel he’s violated as a Methodist,” Wright said.

Many Christian leaders have rejected Sessions’ interpretation of Romans 13 and spoke out against the zero tolerance policy, including the Council of Bishops of the United Methodist Church.

“Our congregations and agencies serve many migrant families that have recently arrived in the United States. Leaving their communities is often the only option they have to provide safety for their children and protect them from harm,” the council said in a June 7 statement. “Tearing children away from parents who have made a dangerous journey to provide a safe and sufficient life for them is unnecessarily cruel and detrimental to the well-being of parents and children.”

Sessions’ Mobile church, Ashland Place, is part of the UMC’s Alabama–West Florida Conference, which has also been critical of the policy. A spokeswoman for the conference declined to comment to HuffPost about the charges brought against Sessions, saying that details about any complaint are confidential.

In a statement released Monday, the conference’s Bishop David Graves decried separating children from their parents as “unjust acts.”  

“I implore congress and the current administration to do all in their power to reunite these families,” he said.

Crackdown Against Abuse of Asylum Claims Sparks Panic at Telemundo

PAULINA SODI, ANCHOR, TELEMUNDO: Look, hopes are fading for thousands of people fleeing violence in their countries and seeking asylum in the United States. The government announced that it will toughen the requirements for those seeking that migratory shield. Alban Zamora has more information.

JEFF SESSIONS, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL: The vast majority of the current asylum claims

ALBAN ZAMORA, CORRESPONDENT, TELEMUNDO: His position is once again extreme against the undocumented. Jeff Sessions says immigrants are abusing the immigration system.

JEFF SESSIONS: I have put in place a zero tolerance

ALBAN ZAMORA: I have put in place a policy of zero tolerance for illegal entry through the southern border. If you cross that border illegally we will prosecute you, simple as that.

ALBAN ZAMORA: Putting down the fist, without exception, for those who request asylum.

JEFF SESSIONS: The vast majority of the current asylum claims

ALBAN ZAMORA: During the last five years only 20% of cases have been found meritorious. Asylum was never intended to alleviate all problems.

ALBAN ZAMORA: The U.S. Attorney General explained that asylum applications have tripled since 2009, and that more than 700,000 cases await review.

ALMA ROSA NIETO, IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY: It is believed that more than half of the cases deal with fear of returning to their countries because of the gangs or because they have been victims of domestic violence.

ALBAN ZAMORA: For organizations like CASA, closing the doors to victims of domestic violence and gang crimes is an injustice.

GEORGE ESCOBAR, CASA: Now it turns out that because of the mere fact that the government they come from is not necessarily involved in the persecution that they suffer for that reason, they will be denied asylum, and in reality that is a crime.

ALBAN ZAMORA: Just as with what occurred with DACA and the TPS, the immigrant advocates say all is not lost.

GEORGE ESCOBAR: Now, once again, we are going to the courts to make sure that ultimately the law of this country has the last word.

ALBAN ZAMORA: Alban Zamora, Telemundo.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL, HOST, UN NUEVO DÍA: And yes, this contains not very pleasant news especially for Central America, because obtaining permanent asylum legally in the United States from now on will be even more difficult, according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions who we just heard about from Paulina. The official announced yesterday, Monday, that victims of domestic violence or people fleeing gangs will no longer be eligible to receive asylum in the United States. Usually to obtain asylum status it is necessary to prove that one is persecuted in one’s country of origin either because of race, religion, nationality, by belonging to a particular social group or by having a certain political opinion.

ADAMARI LÓPEZ, HOST, UN NUEVO DÍA: Well, we were all speechless yesterday, Paulina, colleagues. Yesterday’s announcement represents a tough blow to thousands of immigrants, especially those who come from Central America who are trying to legitimize their immigration status here in the United States through the asylum status they ask for, after verifying that they were victims of domestic violence or abuse by gangs in their countries, which is the reason why they come here to the United States seeking help or relief so that what happened in their home country won’t occur in the United States.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL: Indeed, and according to Attorney General Sessions, precisely the problem lies in the fact that many immigrants are therefore in quotation marks “abusing” the asylum system and this obviously goes against the interests of those who do have a fair claim. The reality is that, well, asylum requests have skyrocketed from 5,000 requests in 2009 to, listen to this, 94-thousand in 2016.

ANFITRIONA: Paulina you referred to that a second ago.

PAULINA SODI: That’s right, what we are seeing now is that what is happening with this policy of zero tolerance on the part of the Trump administration and with the announcement made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is that it is becoming a kind of funnel for immigrants, we saw it first with DACA, in the case of the dreamers, then we see it with the TPS, now we are seeing it in this case of the people who ask for political asylum due to violence or domestic abuse and also another category is being added, which is a reassessment of the cases of people who obtained U.S. citizenship or permanent residency, which will be re-analyzed to see if in the process something unlawful was committed or some lie was said to revoke that permit or that citizenship and return them to their countries of origin.

ADAMARI LÓPEZ: Even worse.

PAULINA SODI: Now we are seeing that every time that funnel is getting smaller and smaller, and the immigrant community in the United States is being more and more affected and fear also increases.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL: Of course, and what’s most serious is that they close the funnel, they close your possibilities here in the United States, and the United States with all the economic power that it has, doesn’t work on the origin of the problem which is to help these countries end the violence.

ADAMARI LÓPEZ: Of course.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL: because if the violence ended in those countries, the people would be happy, the people would stay in their countries.

ADAMARI LÓPEZ: They would stay in their countries, no doubt.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL: They do not want to come here.

PAULINA SODI: That was precisely one of arguments from Attorney General Sessions who said that in terms of political asylum, in these two cases, it was done to give a little support, not to solve the entire problem and that the immigrant community was taking advantage of these types of asylum to obtain benefits.

ADAMARI LÓPEZ: Well, let’s investigate which ones are worthy and which ones are not, instead of closing the funnel because there are people who need it.

PAULINA SODI: Indeed.

HOST: It gets complicated, it gets complicated.

MARCO ANTONIO REGIL: Oh my God.

Harvard records show discrimination against Asian-Americans: group

By Nate Raymond

BOSTON (Reuters) – Harvard University killed an internal investigation in 2013 that found evidence the Ivy League school’s admissions system is biased against Asian-American applicants, a nonprofit group suing the university alleged in a court filing on Friday.

The claim by Students for Fair Admissions Inc came in a brief that sought to have a federal judge in Boston rule in its favor without a trial in a closely watched lawsuit accusing Harvard of discriminating against Asian-Americans.

The group, headed by prominent anti-affirmative action activist Edward Blum, said evidence showed that Harvard had allowed race to become a dominant consideration in considering applicants rather than just a legally allowed “plus” factor.

“Incontrovertible evidence shows that Harvard’s admissions policy has a disproportionately negative effect on Asian-Americans vis-à-vis similarly situated white applicants that cannot be explained on non-discriminatory grounds,” the group said in its brief.

Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Harvard in its own brief on Friday denied discriminating against Asian-Americans.

In court papers, Arlington, Virginia-based Students for Fair Admissions said an Asian-American male applicant with a 25 percent chance of admission would have a 35 percent chance if he was white, 75 percent if he were Hispanic and a 95 percent chance if he were black.

The brief did not provide a similar breakdown for women.

It said that in 2013, a Harvard research division found that over a decade Asian-American admission rates were lower than those for whites annually even though whites only outperformed Asian-American applicants on a subjective rating of a student’s personality.

But the group said Harvard ultimately killed the study and buried the reports from it.

The group in its 2014 complaint said Harvard defines “Asian-Americans” as including individuals of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Hmong or Indian descent.

In Friday’s brief, Harvard said the percentage of Asian-Americans it admitted had actually grown by 29 percent over the last decade. It called the 2013 report “preliminary and incomplete” and said that it was done with limited admissions data.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled universities may use affirmative action to help minority applicants get into college. Conservatives have said such programs can hurt white people and Asian-Americans.

In 2016 the nation’s highest court rejected a high-profile challenge to a University of Texas program designed to boost the enrollment of minority students, which was brought by a white woman.

Students for Fair Admissions President Blum found the woman who pursued that case.

In its brief, Harvard called the lawsuit by Blum’s group “the latest salvo by ideological opponents of the consideration of race in university admissions.”

After Republican President Donald Trump took office last year, the Justice Department began investigating whether Harvard’s policies are discriminatory because they limit the acceptance of Asian-Americans.

The Justice Department has since signaled its interest in Students for Fair Admissions’ case, which has an October trial date.

Mass of Mexico fans take over Moscow ahead of World Cup game against Germany (VIDEO)

Mexico fans are taking over central Moscow ahead of their team’s opening World Cup game against Germany at the city’s Luzhniki Stadium later on Sunday.

The Mexicans have been out in force in Russia since the tournament began on Thursday, being a prominent presence on the streets as well at matches featuring other teams.

Today ‘El Tri’ finally get their tournament underway when they meet reigning champions Germany at the 80,000-seater Luzhniki Stadium, and the Mexican masses in Moscow are gearing up for the game in style.

Huge crowds of sombrero-wearing supporters were spotted outside Frunzenskaya Metro station just south of the city center, knocking a giant beach-ball around while chanting in unison and waving the Mexican tricolor.

The Mexicans are among the largest foreign fan groups in Russia this summer, with around 50,000 tickets officially being sold in the country and many more coming from the 80,000 tickets sold in the USA.

They took over Russia’s opening game party on Thursday, celebrating outside the stadium and capturing the hearts of local fans with their colorful attire and willingness to take photos.

Government Politicians Say They Live In Fear As Threats Against Deep State Congress Increase

“the House Administration Committee allocated $25,000 to each member in 2017 and again in 2018 to beef up their personal and office security…”

Threats against politicians have been skyrocketing lately. Many in Congress are now living in fear, purchasing body armor and hiring armed guards to protect themselves against the people they should be serving rather than controlling.

One year after the horrific congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Representative Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika, members are keenly aware that the continued attempt to control and manipulate the public has finally put a target on their backs.

The true reality is if somebody wanted to do me harm, they could probably do that with relative ease and that is sad,” said Representative Chuck Fleishmann (R-Tenn.), a New York City native.

Mexican citizens have been executing politicians in the country south of the United States’ border.  So far, 113 political elites (or those attempting to become a political master by way of election) have been killed.

The majority of politicians experiencing the threats appear to be republican. Which just goes to show that liberals intend to use violence and theft to get people to conform to their ideas rather than use peace and voluntary interaction.

In 2016, there were 902 threatening incidents and communications against members of Congress. By 2017, the reports had more than doubled to about 2,000, according to the House Sergeant at Arms office.

According to The New York Post, in response, the House Administration Committee allocated $25,000 to each member in 2017 and again in 2018 to beef up their personal and office security, prompting members to hire bodyguards for events and equip offices with panic buttons and shatter-resistant glass.

Communist Security

Meaning they are using the funds of those who are making the treats to protect the ruling class.

The House Sergeant at Arms got an additional $5 million to improve office security for district offices. Congress also increased funding for Capitol Police by $29.2 million in 2017, and another $29.9 million in 2018.

In recognition of the danger level to the political elites, the Federal Election Commission also ruled in July that lawmakers can also use campaign funds, which are typically spent on TV ads and mailers, to install security systems at their homes instead.

The chairman of the House Administration Committee, representative Gregg Harper that authorized security spending, said the shooting made clear that Congress needed to do more.

“What we would never want to have happen is for an incident to occur and anybody – a member, a visitor or staffer – to say you didn’t give us what we needed to protect ourselves,”  Harper, who has hired personal armed bodyguards said.

While violence is not the answer, neither is the elite ruling class shoving their laws down the throats of the public on a whim with no consequences.

Then America Was Born

Eventually, this ruling class vs. the slaves mentality was going to explode (just like it did leading up to the American Revolution.)

As soon as enough people wake up and realize whom the real enemy of liberty is, there won’t be a need for violence or threats. There will eventually hopefully be enough people who no longer wish to be slaves to politicians that [deep state] government itself will become obsolete; peacefully.
