Corrupt Gov’t Tries to Snub Out Journalist After She Exposed Shocking Number of Jail Deaths

journalistjournalist

San Diego, CA — Even though the First Amendment of the US Constitution states “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,” one California reporter says she has been targeted by San Diego County for her investigative reports detailing extraordinary number of deaths of inmates in the county’s jails. Local journalist and Voice of San Diego (VOSD) contributor Kelly Davis has been pressured to reveal her sources and has been hauled in to court to defend her reporting.

In what is shaping out to be a clear violation of the Constitution, Davis’ report chronicled 60 inmate deaths in local jails from 2007 to 2012. The report should have been a wake-up call for jailers to work harder to keep people from getting killed or committing suicide while in custody, but VOSD said it was anything but a call to action.

Instead, the county’s attorney’s turned their attention and set their sights on one of the reporters covering the story. “They’ve upended her life, forcing her to do one of three things — expose sources by testifying about her work, agree to a deal that would protect her fragile health at the expense of harming the widow’s case or fight back,” writes VOSD.

In a blatant overreach of government, the attorneys issued several demands of the journalist:

The county demanded that Davis give testimony in a deposition and provide all the documents, notes and recordings that she used in her reporting about the county’s high jail mortality and suicide rates. It also demanded her communications with the widow’s attorneys regarding jail suicides.

Davis refused. Not only is she fighting to save her career and her independent rights to reporting without disclosing sources, she’s also fighting an advanced stage of breast cancer. She wonders openly if lawyers are trying to intimidate her.

I am just wondering if they are trying to intimidate me.

Davis got roped into a lawsuit brought about by Kris Nesmith’s widow. Nesmith, a veteran committed suicide while in jail, despite being warned by his widow he was suicidal. The county then named Davis as a party in the lawsuit and demanded Davis’ notes, statistics, interviewee’s names—everything she had on the deaths taking place in the jails. Her lawyers contended the data was a matter of public record and she would not turn over her private journalist files.

For the moment, the judge is on Davis’ side, telling the county the news stories should have been a wake-up call for the county to take action and implement a proper suicide-prevention policy.

It is plausible that if the County had reacted to the prior suicide incidents by implementing an appropriate suicide prevention policy or by remedying the alleged custom of indifference, Kris’s suicidal ideations would not have been ignored.

Earlier this month, the judge also ruled Davis would not have to disclose any information to the county’s lawyers. Davis was relieved and told reporters:

You want journalists to be free to do their stories and to gather their research, talk to their sources, without worrying that someone is looking over their shoulder.

While Davis’ case may seem like an isolated one, news media organizations all across the United States are under attack, particularly accused of being purveyors of “fake news” and threatened with censorship. Facebook, which used to be known for allowing freedom of speech from differing points of view, has recently implemented its new “algorithm” which supposedly chooses for its users what news they should see.

Predictably, alternative points of view have been weeded out to disallow the previously permitted free speech of its content creators. The measure has hurt the freedom of the press to disseminate the news. For now, Facebook is getting away with it. However, lawsuits will likely decide just how far, like San Diego County, Facebook can go to prevent the free exercise of the press.

Obama knew! Damning texts surface that name Barack Obama in corrupt exoneration of Hillary Clinton and her illegal email server

 

(Natural News) Damning new texts among deep state Obama regime operatives have surfaced, revealing that former president Barack Obama was fully aware of the FBI’s treasonous actions that exonerated Hillary Clinton of multiple felony crimes, despite the corrupt FBI possessing clear evidence of those crimes.

“FBI lovers” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged tens of thousands of messages that the discredited FBI tried to hide from present-day congressional investigators, but those messages were recovered and have been slowly leaked to the media. The latest leak reveals that Obama “wants to know everything” about the Hillary Clinton investigation, confirming that Strzok and Page — both likely facing serious criminal indictments related to treason — prepared to brief Obama on the details of their criminal operation to exonerate Hillary.

The bombshell story was broken by Fox News:

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by Fox News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016, about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” According to a newly released Senate report, this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)

See all the documents yourself at this Senate.gov link.

Obama lied to America, said he “guaranteed” he would not get involved in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton

To the surprise of no one who is fully informed of the criminality and treasonous actions of Barack Hussein Obama, the former president “guaranteed” he wouldn’t get involved in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton. We now know he lied, but this is routine for Obama, who constantly lied to the American public about almost everything that mattered.

Here’s exactly what Obama said in a 2016 interview, courtesy of Grabien news:

OBAMA: “I can guarantee. I can guarantee that not because I give Attorney General [Loretta] Lynch a directive, that is institutionally how we have always operated. I do not talk to the Attorney General about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it. I guarantee it. I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any case. Period. Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department because nobody is above the law.”

WALLACE: “Even if she ends up as the Democratic nominee?”

OBAMA: “How many times do I have to say it, Chris? Guaranteed.”

“You know, this previous administration—the Obama administration—micromanaged everything out of the White House,” warned Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) in a Breitbart News Daily interview. He went on to add:

And I challenge people, remember the Syrian strikes that were actually handpicked and dictated by the president at that time. This gentleman was involved in everything. That’s where all this leads. When you look at the cover-up with the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, it gets—it should have pointed out exactly what we’ve been talking about, that this was the weaponization of our Justice Department not only to cover up for the previous administration and the wrongdoing and ills of them and those associated with them, but also to attack a sitting president—actually a candidate at the time, then president-elect and then a current, sitting president you know of an opposition party. This is outrageous, and you are exactly right we have got to get to the bottom of this so that people are held accountable because that is what America wants.

Now we know Obama was a liar and top FBI officials were committing treason

With the revelations found in these shocking texts, however, we now know that Obama lied to cover up his complicity in the FBI’s treasonous activities to alter the outcome of the election. As the UK Daily Mail reports:

An FBI lawyer wrote in a text to her lover in late 2016 that then-president Barack Obama wanted updates on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Two months before the presidential election, Lisa Page wrote to fellow FBI official Peter Strzok that she was working on a memo for then-FBI director James Comey because Obama ‘wants to know everything we’re doing.’

The September 2, 2016 text message was among more 50,000 texts the pair sent during a two-year extramarital affair.

Strzok was the lead investigator on the probe examining Clinton’s illicit use of a private email server to handle her official State Department messages while she was America’s top diplomat. He was later a member of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating alleged links between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.

Could Obama face criminal charges for his role in the FBI cover-up?

It’s unlikely that Obama could face criminal charges, because the actions of a sitting president enjoy significant constitutional protections. Hillary Clinton, however, is clearly facing multiple criminal indictments for obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, violation of national security protocols, selling of influence (corruption) and more. Although the investigation may take 1-2 years, if evidence and the law are followed, Hillary Clinton will eventually end up indicted on multiple felony charges.

“The tide is turning and the real crooks are slowly being identified,” reports The Gateway Pundit. “Corrupt lovers Strzok and Page both worked at the FBI.  As a matter of fact, they were both very high up at the FBI and are both very corrupt.  Strzok is famous for his activities in protecting Hillary Clinton from criminal charges in 2016.”

Corrupt FBI, DOJ officials committed TREASON, warns lawmaker; James Comey could face DEATH penalty


Image: Corrupt FBI, DOJ officials committed TREASON, warns lawmaker; James Comey could face DEATH penalty

(Natural News)
The shocking revelations uncovered in yesterday’s release of the FISA memo reveal a pattern of treason among top officials at the FBI and DOJ, warns  Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona. The FISA memo documented how the most powerful law enforcement elements of the United States government were weaponized under President Obama to illegally spy on Republican political targets. A secret FISA warrant application that gained approval for the spying operation was fraudulently engineered, relying largely on a fictional “dossier” of salacious lies that was largely funded by the Clinton campaign.

Furthermore, false stories were planted in left-wing media outlets to lend “credence” to the fake dossier, and publishers such as Mother Jones, CNN, NYT and the Washington Post gladly played along as propaganda puppets in this dangerous charade. In effect, the left-wing media, FBI, DOJ, Clinton operatives and Obama administration all conspired to roll out “a coup against America,” warns Daniel Greenfield. (These tactics, interestingly enough, mirror the fraud, deceptions and militant “dark ops” actions of the corrupt vaccine industry, which has been extensively documented at Vaccines.news.)

“Clear and convincing evidence of treason…”

The statement released by congressman Paul Gosar cites “clear and convincing evidence of treason” and warns that the actions of Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein and others “is not just criminal but constitutes treason.”

His full statement:

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memorandum on the FBI abuse of FISA warrants and targeting a sitting President is not just evidence of incompetence but clear and convincing evidence of treason.

The FBI knowingly took false information from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign and then used it to smear Donald Trump in order to hurt his campaign.

This is third world politics where the official government agencies are used as campaign attack dogs. The full throated adoption of this illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein is not just criminal but constitutes treason. I will be leading a letter to the Attorney General seeking criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation.

Finally. Let me say this to those members of Congress who fought so hard to keep the truth from the American public. Your efforts to protect a corrupt organization are duly noted. I am not surprised Sen. Flake has again cast his lot with the Democrats and those that attack true patriots. Good riddance.

Lynch, Rosenstein, Comey, McCabe, Yates and Strzok… all TREASONOUS criminals and enemies of America

The FISA memo, released by members of Congress who investigated the scandal, reveals a dangerous pattern of fraud, abuse of power and outright treason on the part of numerous Obama operatives, including Loretta Lynch, Rod Rosenstein, Jomes Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and others. Even more shockingly, these deep state operatives literally colluded with Russian sources to develop the fictitious “Trump dossier” that they used to commit FISA court fraud. As Breitbart.com explains:

Much of the “salacious and unverified” material in the dossier came from the Russians. In other words, those disgusting dossier lies about Trump’s personal behavior came from Russian operatives. So there is no question that it was the Clinton campaign, Democrats, Steele, the FBI, and DOJ who colluded with the Russians to rig a presidential election.

In an effort to prevent these shocking details from being made public, the FBI withheld details from Congress for months. Even more disturbingly, Rod Rosenstein reportedly threatened House Intelligence Committee members to try to prevent them from approving public release of the memo.

Democrats APPROVE of treason, as long as it targets their political enemies

To the alarm of many observers, there isn’t a single prominent Democrat or left-wing media organization that has denounced the gross abuse of power detailed in the FISA memo. Without exception, every left-wing media outlet and Democrat lawmaker remains complicit in the treason, even sometimes endorsing the tactics as “necessary” to remove a President that was elected by the will of the People through a lawful democratic process.

This realization proves just how dangerous the Left Cult has become, demonstrating that they are totalitarians through and through, believing that the “proper” role of government is to be deployed as a weapon to destroy political opponents. In effect, as I’ve stated numerous times, these revelations prove that Democrats are not qualified to participate in any democracy. They do not honor the rule of law, and they reject the outcomes of any elections they don’t fully control. It’s clear from these events that Democrats are a clear and present danger to this Republic (and all its citizens).

Under current U.S. law, individuals found guilty of treason may be put to death

Today, I am calling for the arrest, indictment and prosecution of not only these individuals who committed acts of fraud and treason, but also the arrest and indictment of so-called “journalists” who took money to plant fake stories in the left-wing media. They are complicit, of course, in the treason. And it’s time they finally faced real repercussions for their role in the attempted political coup targeting our country.

Real Americas must also get prepared to defend your country against the attempted violent coup of the deranged Left, which first tried to achieve a coup via “shadow government” means, but has now been exposed. Their next gambit will involve a physical “revolt” attempt that’s likely to thrust America into a bloody civil war conflict across many U.S. cities.

Ultimately, it’s clear that Democrats respect no laws or democratic processes whatsoever and are filled with so much blinding anger and rage that they are incapable of being reasoned with. This is what makes them so dangerous to any civil society. Sooner or later, We the People are going to have to defend our country against their animated attempts to overthrow it by force.

Finally, investigations that follow the facts of the FISA memo will inescapably lead to the doorstep of both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, both of whom have deliberately acted as criminal traitors to this country. If we are to take back this country from the deep state shadow government, both Clinton and Obama must be arrested and indicted for their roles in these high crimes of treason that targeted our sacred Republic. It’s likely that Obama will never actually face criminal indictment due to the protections inherent in the Office of the Presidency, but Hillary Clinton’s crimes of theft of government property, destruction of evidence, mishandling of secret materials and criminal conspiracy enjoy no such protections.

If Clinton is not ultimately indicted before the end of 2020, then we have forever lost our country to the swamp. This is the key milestone to watch. It is the true litmus test of whether the United States of America is a nation with true equality under the law. It’s even ironic, by the way, that Hillary Clinton demands “equality” when it comes to gender and social issues, yet she has never been held to anything resembling equal accountability under the law.

Perhaps that day is finally coming in the near future.

Conservative Candidate is Corrupt, Unfaithful and ‘Anti-Immigration’ on CW’s ‘Dynasty’

Melissa: May I pour you one?

Cristal: Ha. My husband is also my boss, and he might not approve of his COO day-drinking.

Melissa: Well, you two are just so adorable. I remember when I used to care what Paul thought of me. That’s what’s so nice about the honeymoon period that you and Blake are in.

Cristal: Well, we’ve definitely had our ups and downs, but I’m making sure the honeymoon keeps on going.

Melissa: You seem very smart, Cristal.

Cristal: Hmm.

Melissa: I’m gonna give you some advice. Being married to someone as powerful as Blake can wipe out your identity. It is up to you to be true to yourself.

Cristal: Well, with all due respect, you and I are very different that way. Blake married me for who I am.

Melissa: Oh, of course. It’s just… I didn’t notice it at first, either. I just started making small compromises and looking the other way to support my husband. The next thing you know, I was in too deep. But what’s integrity when you can have this bracelet? It cost more than the home I grew up in.

Cristal: Well, I’m never gonna be anything like that.

Melissa: Well, you probably won’t feel that way after my husband’s speech tonight.

Cristal: Why is that?

Melissa: Nobody knows this, but Paul is taking a new anti-immigration stance. Build the wall, SB 1070 kind of stuff. Surely, for someone like you, that’s a hard pill to swallow just to support your husband.

Cristal: Hmm.

Corrupt Cops Admit To Keeping BB Guns to Plant On Unarmed People They Kill

baltimorebaltimore

Baltimore, MD — (ZH) Over the past year, the Baltimore Police Department has undoubtedly gained national attention in a corruption scandal involving the Gun Trace Task Force, running wild on the streets of Baltimore.

Members of this elite group were charged with “racketeering and other corruption, accused of robbing citizens, making illegal arrests and filing for thousands of dollars in overtime they never worked,” said the Baltimore Sun.

Maurice Ward, one of the Gun Trace Task Force detectives, took the stand Tuesday in the case of officers Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor who were charged with robbery, extortion, fraud and firearm charges.

Ward’s testimony provided a somewhat shocking account of how detectives used GPS locators to follow drug dealers, and then, eventually rob them of their cash and drugs.

According to the Baltimore Sun, here are some notable and shocking moments from the testimony during Tuesday’s proceedings:

Ward testified that his squad would prowl the streets for guns and drugs, with his supervisor, Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, driving fast at groups of people and slamming on the brakes. The officers would pop their doors open to see who ran, then give chase and detain and search them. Ward said this occurred 10 to 20 times on slow nights, and more than 50 times, “easy,” on busier nights.

The officers had no reason to target the crowds other than to provoke someone who might have drugs or a gun into running. “A lot of times” guns and drugs were recovered in this way, Ward said.

Ward said Jenkins liked to profile certain vehicles for traffic stops. Honda Accords, Acura TLs, Honda Odysseys were among the “dope boy cars” that they would pull over, claiming the drivers weren’t wearing seat belts or their windows were too heavily tinted.

Ward said Jenkins also believed males over the age of 18 carrying bookbags were suspicious and attempted to stop them.

Jenkins would portray himself as a federal agent, telling drug dealers that he was taking their money and drugs but would let them go because they weren’t his ultimate target.

Ward said the officers used illegal GPS trackers to follow the movements of some targets.

Jenkins would ask suspected drug dealers, “If you could put together a crew of guys and rob the biggest drug dealer in town, who would it be?” The officers would use the answers to determine who to target, Ward said.

In Ward’s testimony, he described some detectives carried around fake guns to plant on suspects in case they got into a jam. He further detailed an incident where detectives stole $100,000 from an illegal search of a home. The testimony shows detectives were in the game of robbing drug dealers, but on a positive note, the task force removed plenty of guns from the war-torn streets.

Ward said the officers kept BB guns in their vehicles “in case we accidentally hit somebody or got into a shootout, so we could plant them.” He did not say whether the officers ever planted a BB gun on anyone.

In one incident, police took a man’s house keys, ran his name through databases to find his address, went into the home without a warrant and found drugs and a safe. The officers cracked open the safe, which had about $200,000 inside. They took $100,000 out, closed the safe back up, then filmed themselves pretending to open it for the first time. “Nobody touch anything,” Jenkins can be heard saying on the video, which was played for jurors.

After the man’s arrest, Jenkins listened to the man’s calls made from jail. He was discussing the officers taking his money, and said he wanted to hire a good lawyer to go after them. Ward said Jenkins determined the man’s wife was arranging his legal matters, and wanted to cut her out. They wrote a note purporting to be from another woman, saying the man had gotten her pregnant, and left it in the man’s door, Ward said.

Later, Ward said Jenkins contacted him about wanting to rob the man again. They met at an apartment, where Jenkins and Detective Daniel Hersl sipped Twisted Teas and discussed a robbery. Another time, he proposed a different robbery, and showed the officers a large black bag that was full of balaclava ski masks, black clothing and shoes. Another bag contained tools such as a crow bar, battering ram, and a rope with a grappling hook. “I didn’t understand that part,” Ward said of the grappling hook. Both bags were emptied out for jurors in the courtroom.

A federal prosecutor described the elite team of Baltimore detectives as a “perfect storm” of corruption in the opening arguments at the Gun Trace Task Force trial on Tuesday.

Justin Fenton, a crime reporter for the Baltimore Sun provides more updates on the ongoing trial:

WATCH: Senator’s Viral Tax Bill Video Exposes How Corrupt Politicians Pass Laws

tax-billtax-bill

Both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate came together to pass a massive tax bill early Saturday morning, and one senator called out the hypocrisy on Twitter, noting that he was handed a nearly 500-page bill just a few hours before he was expected to vote on it—and it included pages of illegible hand-scribbled notes.

“Happy Holidays, everybody! It’s the night we’re going to be voting on the tax bill. I just got the tax bill 25 minutes ago.  This is the tax bill. See how thick it is. This is what it looks like. Oh, no, let’s look at the bill—this is what it really looks like,” Sen. Jon Tester said, as he held up a page filled with messy, handwritten notes. “I want you to take a look at this, folks. This is your government at work. Here’s the bill as it’s written. Here’s the modifications that are in it. I can read one word.”

The Tax Reconciliation Act was passed by a vote of 51-49. Sen. Tester, a Democrat from Montana, published the video on Twitter Friday evening, and it has since been retweeted more than 133,000 times.

This is unbelievable,” Tester said. “We’re doing massive tax reform on an absolute and credible timeline. This is going to affect everyone in this country. It’s going to shift money from middle-class families to the rich. It’s amazing, and we’ve been given this 25 minutes ago, and we’re supposed to vote on it in a couple of hours.”

Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, also criticized the policy changes in the form of handwritten notes carelessly scribbled along the side of the bill’s text. Trying to review the #GOPTaxScam but they are making hand-written changes to brand new text as we speak—can anyone else read this?” Durbin asked on Twitter.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri, published a Tweet on Friday afternoon, claiming that she and her colleagues received a list of amendments to be included in the bill that came from lobbyists, and not directly from the Republicans who were given credit for writing them.

“This is so bad. We have just gotten list of amendments to be included in bill NOT from our R colleagues, but from lobbyists downtown,” McCaskill wrote. “None of us have seen this list, but lobbyists have it. Need I say more? Disgusting. And we probably will not even be given time to read them.”

While Democrats seemed to be in the majority when it came to criticizing the massive bill, every elected official—no matter their party affiliation—should be held accountable for their vote.

In the case of the Tax Reconciliation Act, the senators seemed to be expected to read nearly 500 pages in just a few hours, while also deciphering scribbled handwriting. However, it should be noted that this is not a partisan practice. From the Patriot Act, to the Affordable Care Act, there have been countless occasions in which Democrats and Republicans have worked together to endanger the American people by voting in favor of massive pieces of legislation they have not read.

Trump Wants More Money for Corrupt Border Patrol


President Donald Trump doesn’t just want to build a wall along the southern border, he also wants Congress to hire 5,000 additional Border agents—a 25% increase—to patrol it. However, Border Patrol suffers from worse discipline, performance, and corruption problems than any other federal law enforcement agency, my study for the Cato Institute found.

Congress should fix those problems before even considering any new request for more agents.

Stories of Border Patrol misconduct and corruption have dribbled into the press for years. They range from ordinary corruption to brutal crimes. On the ordinary side, Border Patrol agents Raul and Fidel Villarreal were convicted of smuggling in around 1,000 illegal immigrants in exchange for $1 million. On the brutal side, Border Patrol agent Esteban Manzanares kidnapped, assaulted, and raped three illegal immigrant women he apprehended while on the job in 2014.

There are many other cases just like those, but the full extent of the problem is very unclear. Are these just a few bad apples? Or is it “conservative to estimate” that 5 percent of the Border Patrol force, adding up to about 1,000 agents, is corrupt, as James Tomsheck said after he was removed as head of one of the internal affairs departments that oversaw Border Patrol in 2014.

Government reports offer confusing, contradictory, and incomplete answers. According to evidence released under the Freedom of Information Act, 158 Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employees were convicted or charged with corruption from 2005 to 2016. The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General found 358 corruption or misconduct convictions, but it doesn’t distinguish between government employees and civilians who conspired with them. CBP further complicates this mess by distinguishing between “mission-compromising” convictions, which include drug and immigrant smuggling, and “non-mission-compromising” ones, which include sexually assaulting detainees and murder.

  • President Donald Trump needs to be sentenced to death by lethal injection on top of impeachment!

Is Washington the Most Corrupt Government in History?

Robert Mueller, a former director of the FBI who is working as a special prosecutor “investigating” a contrived hoax designed by the military/security complex and the DNC to destroy the Trump presidency, has yet to produce a scrap of evidence that Russiagate is anything but orchestrated fake news. As William Binney and other top experts have said, if there is evidence of Russiagate, the NSA would have it. No investigation would be necessary. So where is the evidence?

It is a revelation of how corrupt Washington is that a fake scandal is being investigated while a real scandal is not. The fake scandal is Trump’s Russiagate. The real scandal is Hillary Clinton’s uranium sale to Russia. No evidence for the former exists. Voluminous evidence for Hillary’s scandal lies in plain view. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/10/25/hillary-clinton-and-real-russian-collusion.html

Why are the clearly false charges against Trump being investigated and the clearly true charges against Hillary not being investigated? The answer is that Hillary with her hostility toward Russia and her denunciation of Russian President Putin as the “New Hitler” is not a threat to the budget and power of the US military/security complex, while Trump’s aim of normalizing relations with Russia would deprive the military/security complex of the “enemy” it requires to justify its massive budget and power.

Why hasn’t President Trump ordered the Justice Department to investigate Hillary? Is the answer that Trump is afraid the military/security complex will assassinate him? Why hasn’t the Justice Department undertaken the investigation on its own? Is the answer that Trump’s government is allied with his enemies?

How corrupt does Mueller have to be to agree to lead a fake investigation designed to overthrow the democratic election of the President of the United States? Why doesn’t Trump have Mueller and Comey arrested for sedition and conspiring to overthrow the president of the United States?

Why instead is Mueller expanding his investigation beyond his mandate and bringing charges against Manafort and others for decade-old under-reporting of income? Why instead is Congress harassing journalist Randy Credico for interviewing Julian Assange? How does an interview become part of the House Intelligence (sic) Committee’s investigation into “Russian active measures directed at the 2016 U.S. election?” There were no such active measures, but the uranium sale was real.

Why haven’t the media conglomerates that have produced presstitutes instead of journalists been broken up? Why can presstitutes lie 24/7, but a man can’t make a pass at a woman?

Once you begin asking questions, there is no end of them.

The failure of the US and European media is extreme.

The presstitutes never investigate real events. The presstitutes never question inconsistencies in official stories. They never tie together loose ends. They simply read over and over the script handed to them until the official story that controls the explanation is driven into the public’s head.

Consider, for example, the Obama regime’s claim to have murdered Osama bin Laden in his “compound” in Abbottabad, Pakistan, next to a Pakistani military base. The official story had to be changed several times. The Obama regime claim that Obama and top government officials had watched the raid via cameras on the SEALs’ helmets had to be abandoned. There was no reason to withhold the filmed evidence, and of course there was no such evidence, so the initial claim to have watched the killing became a “miscommunication.” The staged photo of the top government officials watching the alleged live filming was never explained. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1382859/Osama-bin-Laden-dead-Photo-Obama-watching-Al-Qaeda-leader-die-live-TV.html

The entire story never made any sense: Osama, unarmed and defended only by his unarmed wife, was murdered in cold blood by a SEAL. What in the world for? Why murder rather than capture the “terrorist mastermind” from whom endless information could have been gained? Why forgo the political fanfare of parading Osama bin Laden before the world as a captive of the American superpower?

Why were no photographs taken? Why was Osama’s body dumped in the ocean. In other words, why was all the evidence destroyed and nothing saved to back up the story?

Why the fake story of Osama being given a sea burial from an aircraft carrier? Why was no media interested that the ship’s crew wrote home that no such burial took place?

Why was there no presstitute interest in the fact that the SEAL unit, from which the SEALs on the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound were drawn, was loaded against regulations in one 50-year old Vietnam era helicopter and shot down in Afghanistan, with all lives lost? Why was there no presstitute interest in the parents of the SEALs complaints about inappropriate procedures that cost their sons’ lives and about fears expressed to them by sons that something was wrong and they felt endangered? http://www.wnd.com/2013/07/navy-seals-father-obama-sent-my-son-to-his-death/

Did the SEAL unit have to be wiped out because the members were asking one another, “who was on that raid?” “Were you on the bin Laden raid?” When in fact no one was on the raid.

Why wasn’t Congress interested?

Why was the live Pakistani TV interview with an eye witness of the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound not reported in the US media? The witness contradicted every aspect of the official story. And this was immediately after the event. There was no time for anyone to concoct an elaborate counter-story or motive to do so.

Here is bin Laden’s last confirmed interview. He says he had nothing to do with 9/11. Why would a terrorist leader who succeed in humiliating “the world’s only superpower” fail to boost his movement by claiming credit?Osama bin Laden had been dead for a decade prior to the false claim that Navy SEALs murdered him in Pakistan in May 2011.

Think about this. The bin Laden story, including 9/11, is fake from start to finish, but it is inscribed into encyclopedias, history books, and the public’s consciousness.

And this is just one example of the institutionalized mass lies concocted by Washington and the presstitutes and turned into truth. Washington’s self-serving control over explanations has removed Americans from reality and made them slaves to fake news.

So, how does democracy function when voters have no reliable information and, instead, are led into the agendas of the rulers by orchestrated events and fake news?

Where is there any evidence that the United States is a functioning democracy?

BBC journalist deletes tweet about UK’s ‘corrupt’ relationship with Israel

    

A prominent BBC journalist has deleted a tweet in which a senior Conservative MP can be seen complaining about the British media turning a blind eye to the corrupt relationship that has allowed Israel to “buy access” in Westminster.

The tweet was posted by the BBC‘s Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg on Wednesday while the Scottish journalist was covering the build up to the resignation of Priti Patel. The Secretary of State for International Development had taken part in undisclosed meetings in Israel organised by the powerful Conservative Friends of Israel lobby (CFI) last summer.

Kuenssberg’s Twitter posts on the day were full of tweets on the Patel story including comments about Number 10 denying the allegation made by the Jewish Chronicle that Prime Minster Theresa May had been made aware of the 12 meetings Patel had had during her “family holiday” in Israel.

    

In her deleted tweet, which MEMO has been able to grab as a screenshot, Kuenssberg reported a comment made by a “senior” Tory MP who, enraged by the debacle, called for Lord Polak, honorary president of CFI and the person thought to be behind Patel’s Israel trip, to be sacked.

“Strong words,” tweeted Kuenssberg, “Senior Tory says Lord Polak should be chucked out of the party, claiming ‘the entire apparatus has turned a blind eye to a corrupt relationship that allows a country to buy access’.

MEMO contacted Kuenssberg to ask why she had deleted the tweet but has not received a reply from the journalist.

The BBC has often been accused of pro-Israel bias and it would appear that this was yet another example of the broadcaster censoring criticism of Israel or senior BBC journalists enforcing self-censorship when it comes to Israel.

While it’s not absolutely clear what the senior Tory meant by the “entire apparatus”, it would appear that the concerns raised by the Conservative politician echo similar complaints made by Israel’s critics over the influence of CFI and other pro-Israeli lobby groups on the entire British establishment including the media.

Kuenssberg’s decision to delete the tweet it seems is further proof that the “entire apparatus” is reluctant to shed light on the “corrupt relationship” between the UK and Israel, which critics say is the reason why the BBC and other media corporations have turned a blind eye, and allowed Israel through the CFI and organisations like the Labour Friends of Israel to “buy access”.
