The Foundation of The American Republic confirmed the pillars of Education and Morality. The Democratic Party provided the alternative.

In a recent CNN interview, Pelosi was not able to name who was the present leader of The Democratic Party. Such was the extent of their self-immolation last November. The noise and wild flung irrational accusations confirming nothing of substance and a desperation at a relevance and existence.

Perez (DNC chairman) was mentioned. Clinton (the great and much respected leader) was mentioned. Obama (the former great president) was mentioned. But Pelosi; Minority Leader of The US House of Representatives (Democratic Supremo) had no idea who was the current leader of The Democratic Party.

They have none. As the loose aggregation of dysfunctional tribes they became. They are on life support, from theatrics and noise from MSM irrationals and colluded mouthpieces in desperation mode.

In four months; they have not been able to produce even one rational objection to the new administration. It started with The Recount Serenade; which only further confirmed already known massive vote frauds by both The Democrats and The Greens. They had to pull the plug on that one.

It then floated to Russian Collusions and The GOP hacking The DNC. All of which eventually found their correct paths back to the accusers.

The gradually unwinding gross economic mismanagement during the socio-economically devastating years of The Obama Era, will be the historically enduring legacy.

To aid The Immigration Affair as I previously wrote, Tillerson has instructed all American Embassies mentioned in Trump’s two Executive Orders, to block visa applications.

The bench warmers at issue can continue to play with their gavels. Omphaloskepsis is such a rewarding art. It’s a great country when individuals can variously reach an alleged responsible high public service office, at great cost and protection from the economic realities of the nation, disengaged from the real world and pontificate Junk Law, to the detriment of the nation and the people they claim to serve.

Michael Moore should reinsert his head to where he has maintained it in recent years. Whenever he removes it, he becomes even more disoriented and confused. His current offerings concern ‘espionage’ by the current administration.

I am concerned about drug abuse by anything termed Democrat in America. Endemic, cultural substance abuse would certainly deliver the bipolarity, schizoid and other states of psychotic episodes, that have become identifiable with what used to be the second party, in the two party American system.

Currently America has The GOP and the rest. As I have written, expect The GOP to eventually factionalise and provide the basis for a new foundation in The American System.

The State Department under Clinton reached a stage of insanity to the point where courses were run on “Culinary Diplomacy” and “Condom Application”. All while Soros front armies were rampaging, looting and slaughtering in The Ukraine and attempting to engage Russia with America. Destruction was levied onto Libya and Syria with looting and slaughtering for dysfunctional commercial interests.

Hillary was dragged around in a standard alcoholic and drug induced haze, pretending to be Secretary of State and then the viable option as President of The United States.

The circumstances of the true history being so dramatic and destructive to the very fabric of America; that ‘in camera’ evidence only could be taken and then buried by Congressional Hearings, while a facade of public hearings were laid out for mass consumption.

The full tragedy of The Clinton and Obama White Houses and The Clinton State Department cannot be fully, ‘officially’, revealed.

Trump and Tillerson have now determined that The US Department of State must be completely gutted. It is not sufficient to remove sections of the bloating. The malignancy is culturally entrenched.

It was further confirmed that many of the current ‘problems’ in Europe  were caused by State and Treasury (which is also being addressed).

Le Pen as French President, will extricate France from The EU Bog.

Mattis is to receive a minimum direct appropriation of $639 billion for next fiscal; to maintain and repair The American Military after the tremendous damage caused by the insanity of The Obama Years.

Instead of responsibly running America; party time never ended. From great shots of him lounging out with his feet on The Oval Office Desk, to ducking downstairs to The White House Lunch Room for some really cool dancing. While cutting back legitimate expenditures, and flooding government departments with destructive robots and tokens.

The absurd funding of social engineering and arty insanities. Reaching a pinnacle of a deeply and terminally flawed healthcare system that needed the looting of the two major low cost housing funds in America, just to maintain it as his ‘legacy’. And of course the open border lunacy that flooded America and brought it to socio-economic devastation.

The absurdity of the created bailiwicks now being defended to the end.

The full truth about America under Obama and Clinton should be revealed, not hidden and disguised as is currently attempted.

Even in The Catholic Church Paedophile Affair; disguising the wrongs to protect the institution does not work.

How was it possible to attempt to hide the murders of 780 infants by drowning in a Catholic Convent Orphanage sewer pit in Ireland?  Attempting an initial justification by reference to ‘The Great” [sic] Insane St.Augustine, opened a cavern that needed to be immediately shut. There’s attempted denial on the net to this day. Remember, this was only a few years ago.

The Institution is only strengthened by honesty and full revelation. The Medicis and Borgias were disowned.  In the case of America, it would entrench in its history that nothing resembling Obama or The Clintons ever emerges again.

Amazon Bans, Shreds, And Burns Thousands of Books: “Holocaust Denial”.

Hundreds of important books on the Holocaust by revisionist scholars have suddenly been banned by Amazon on instructions from angry rabbis in Israel (see video at the end of this article) and from Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem. 

Even books not directly relating to the Holocaust, but pertaining to Jewish affairs during WWII, have been included in the mass ban. Revisionist scholar Germar Rudolf has given a complete list of these books (see below) and it’s highly likely more volumes will be added to this growing list of “forbidden books” in the days ahead.

Meanwhile, in an apparent attempt to muddy the waters, The Times of Israel published an article a few days ago in which it stated that only three books have been banned by Amazon in the UK — without referring to Amazon in the US or the long list of banned books mentioned by Germar Rudolf on CODOH. (See Amazon Mass-bans Dissident Materials, Hundreds of Titles Erased within a Day)

A reliable source informs me that several thousand volumes have been shredded or put through incinerators at Amazon, but this is hard to verify. This has to be one of the greatest acts of cultural vandalism perpetrated within recent times. In characteristic Orwellian fashion, many historical facts are being “flushed down the memory hole” and false factoids put in their place — like the fairy tales spun by Elie Wiesel, e.g., Jewish blood gushing from the ground in geysers (picture).

The Cultural Vandals dare not debate these matters in public, preferring the Stalinesque weapons of censorship and intimidation, followed in many cases by fines and imprisonment.

Only a few months ago, I was lucky enough to buy from Amazon a copy of M.S. King’s The Bad War: The Truth Never Taught About World War 2. Mike King is the owner of the Tomato Bubble website. His lavishly illustrated  246-page book sits on my bedside table. I am one of the lucky ones who bought the book just in time. Because it has now been banned by Amazon.

Apparently Mike received a frosty note from Amazon the other day informing him that his book was no longer fit for human consumption. “We’re contacting you,” the email told him coldly, “regarding the following book: The Bad War: The Truth NEVER Taught About World War II. During our review process, we found that this content is in violation of our content guidelines. As a result, we cannot offer this book for sale.”

What exactly are these mysterious “guidelines”? Amazon refuses to give details. Apparently the head honchos at Amazon don’t like Mike’s ideas. For example, in writing about World War Two, Mike expresses a sneaking sympathy for the German side, hinting it might have been better all round if the Germans had won the war. Mike mixes up the good guys with the bad guys. Let’s face it, that’s not acceptable.

It’s also possible that Mike, at some time or other, had expressed doubts that six million Jews had died in gas chambers during the Holocaust. That was a big mistake. In fact, it’s the biggest mistake anyone can make nowadays. It can get you slung into prison in at least sixteen countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Switzerland. Mike’s shockingly incorrect views on the Holocaust obviously jangled a few nerves at Amazon and consequently violated their “guidelines”. So Mike had to go.

And so Mike’s book was banned.

Before I go any further, a few words on Amazon would perhaps be in order.

Amazon is now the largest internet retailer in the world, valued at $240 billion. It is owned by Jeff Bezos, worth $45.2 billion. Jeff happens to be the fifth richest billionaire in the world, the first four being Bill Gates ($75 billion), Amancio Ortega ($67 billion), Warren Buffett ($60.8 billion), and  Carlos Slim Helu ($50 billion).

Is Jeff Bezos a Jew? I don’t think so, though he has “crypto-Jew status” among the more wild-eyed conspiracy theorists who people the internet. It’s possible that many of Jeff’s closest associates are Jewish, however, such as Tom Alberg, Jon Rubenstein and David Zapolsky.

It’s obviously relevant to enquire into Amazon’s Jewish connections, since there is more than enough evidence to support the view that Jewish rabbis have had an enormous input in dictating Amazon’s famous “guidelines” (see video below). While investigating Amazon’s possible Jewish links, I was amused to find myself on a website that gave a link to an article called “Is Jeff Bezos Evil?” I decided to click on this to find out, but lost interest once I was told I had to log in and give my password. So the question of whether Jeff is evil or not remains unanswered.

A few further clicks, however, provided me with some clues as to whether Jeff was “evil” or not. It tuns out that Jeff is the ultimate ruthless capitalist who exploits his  workers to the bone, getting the last drop of blood out of them — like a vampire running amok in a blood storage factory. He has 180,000 employees working for him full time, and 380,000 people working for him part time in various foreign countries, and boy! he really does drive them like a slavemaster! If “ruthless capitalist vampiric slavemaster” equates to evil, then I guess the word “evil” has to apply to Jeff Bezos.

JEFF BEZOS, OWNER OF AMAZON.COM

Does this man look Evil? YOU decide!

Here’s what the Daily Mail has to say about working conditions at Amazon. An undercover reporter for the newspaper managed to infiltrate the company by getting a job there, and seeing what it was like working 12-hour shifts for a company on the minimum wage.

— Amazombies: Seven seconds to find an item, every move filmed and blistering 12-hours shifts with timed toilet breaks.

— Workers faced relentless time targets for every task they were given.  Staff had to work ‘compulsory’ extra days and hours and were given short notice of shift changes. There was an atmosphere of mistrust and suspicion, with handheld scanners tracking workers’ whereabouts, plus CCTV cameras monitoring the warehouse, and airport-style security checks.

— Staff were left with blistered feet after walking up to 14 miles a day. One employee said: “You just leave your brains behind when you start working here. You’re just a zombie. On our induction day, training staff told us we could expect to walk ten to 14 miles a day [collecting items from distant shelves]. By comparison, Royal Mail postmen normally walk no more than eight miles a day.

EXPANDED PICTURE OF AMAZON WAREHOUSE

— The most common complaint among staff on the warehouse floor was about their sore feet. One told us: “I have such bad blisters on my feet. I am so exhausted. I never knew it would be this tough. My boots are falling apart, and it’s only been four days.”

— Staff are also disciplined for taking too long to walk back from breaks and time spent in the bathroom. One employee explained how he was given a warning in his second week for taking seven minutes during an unscheduled break to go to the bathroom. (See here)

According to Kevin Barrett, the best book he has read on the Holocaust is Thomas Dalton’s Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides. Barrett writes:

“The book is thorough, precise, well-documented, and lays out a convincing prima facie case that holocaust revisionism needs to be taken seriously. Scholarly, dispassionate, and utterly lacking in anything that could remotely be called “hate” or bigotry, Debating the Holocaust is no longer available on Amazon. And that is an outrage.”

To my regret, this is one book I don’t own. And now it’s too late to buy it from Amazon. Barrett goes on to name other books Amazon has tossed on the bonfire. Nick Kollerstrom’s Breaking the Spell is one of them.

With academic qualifications in Chemistry and a doctorate in the philosophy and history of science, Dr Kollerstrom had been under the impression that he was qualified to say something about Zyklon B, the gas allegedly utilized to kill Jews in gas chambers. The results of Kollerstrom’s painstaking research into Nazi “death camps” were set out in his controversial book Breaking the Spell. In this he reached conclusions which were obviously in conflict with the unstated “guidelines” set by his employer, University College, London.

Dr Kollerstrom had discovered that Zyklon B gas, purportedly used to exterminate Jews in large quantities, was actually used to kill lice in order to prevent Jews (and others in the camps) from dying of typhus. Zyklon B was a pesticide, not a murder weapon for thinning Jewish world population. Such a view, of course, could not be tolerated by Dr Kollerstrom’s prestigious university, especially by its Jewish staff. So Dr Kollerstrom was given the chop. Sacked by his college and then given the cold shoulder by Amazon.

Another revisionist scholar who has been affected by the ban on Holocaust revisionism is Dr. Robert Faurisson. We learn from Kevin Barrett:

Faurisson is wildly popular in Morocco, where his books were recommended to me by academic colleagues there during my year of Fulbright-sponsored Ph.D. research in 1999-2000.

Has Faurisson’s Amazon catalogue been tampered with? I can’t tell; but there certainly is a shocking paucity of affordable Faurisson offerings there. The bulk of his work is “currently unavailable.

ROBERT FAURISSON, FRENCH REVISIONIST,
his face badly disfigured by three Jewish thugs 

You will find full details of this savage attack on the CODOH site. Similar facial disfigurement of political dissidents who dare to question the Jewish version of the Holocaust has been promised by the same Jewish organization that carried out the attack on Faurisson. “Faurisson is the first, but will not be the last,” they threatened.

Dr. Robert Faurisson, was severely injured in a nearly fatal attack on September 16, 1989. After spraying a stinging gas into his face, temporarily blinding him, three assailants punched Dr. Faurisson to the ground and then repeatedly kicked him in the face and chest. “He was conscious, but he couldn’t speak,” said a fire fighter who gave Faurisson first aid. “His jaw was smashed. They destroyed his face.”

The 60-year-old scholar, who had been out walking his poodle in a park in his home town of Vichy, suffered a broken jaw and severe head injuries. Physicians operated for four and a half hours to repair his jaw and treat a broken rib and badly swollen face.

A group calling itself, “The Sons of the Memory of the Jews” claimed responsibility for the savage attack. In a statement, the group threatened: “Professor Faurisson is the first, but will not be the last. Let those who deny the Shoah [Holocaust] beware.” 

Another casualty of this Jewish witch hunt is Germar Rudolf.

Like Faurisson, Rudolf too has paid dearly for discovering unpalatable truths and transmitting them to others via the printed word. He has been thrown into prison. His books and papers have been stolen. His savings have also been plundered.

As you might expect, Germar Rudolf has been another victim of Amazon’s witch hunt. He is now too dangerous to be read. It would be highly toxic if thousands, if not millions of people, should begin to suspect that they had been bamboozled by the Holocaust merchants. That they had been the victims of a well-organized hoax.

Kevin Barret publishes a letter written to him by Germar Rudolf which I should now like to quote in full. It’s an important letter because it not only reveals the huge extent of Amazon’s censorship but also of Amazon’s complete capitulation to Jewish demands. If entire governments — like that of the United States, Britain, France and Germany — can fall so easily under the Jewish heel and take orders from the likes of the Rothschilds and the Soroses, what hope is there for mere international corporations like Amazon?

The lawyer for the family of a Russian attorney, who died following a corruption investigation, has been hospitalized in “critical” condition after falling from the fifth floor of an apartment building in Moscow, associates said.

Nikolai Gorokhov fell from a window on Tuesday, a day before he was supposed to represent the mother of Sergei Magnitsky, whose death has been a focal point in souring U.S.-Russian relations.

Magnitsky said he had uncovered a $230 million fraud scheme by Russian government officials, but was imprisoned and convicted posthumously after being accused of the same fraud.

Gorokhov, 53, was set to appear in court on Wednesday in continued court proceedings into the matter, but was “thrown from the top floor of his apartment building” and suffered severe head injuries, according to a website connected to Magnitsky’s boss, financier Bill Browder.

Trump Takes On The Entire CIA – Media Nexus

Trump Takes-on the entire CIA-media nexus

By Jon Rappoport

Image result for trump media cia

Trump’s attack on the CIA came into focus after the CIA claimed Putin subverted the election on behalf of Trump.

 

The Trump team retorted: Ridiculous; reminds us of the CIA’s phony assessment of Saddam’s WMDs that led to the disastrous war against Iraq.

 

Then the CIA’s gloves came off.

 

But there is more to it than that.

 

All along, Trump has been hammering the mainstream press, calling them biased, idiots, fake, etc. Certainly through his advisor, Steve Bannon, and quite probably through other sources, Trump knows about the CIA-major media connection. This connection, of course, goes way back to the Mockingbird CIA operation of the early 1950s. Major news outlets have been infested with CIA operatives since that time.

 

When Trump goes after mainstream news, he’s also going after its shadow brother, the CIA; and vice versa. This is no accident. You can’t put a heavy dent in one without putting a heavy dent in the other.

 

As the mainstream press continues to stir the pot and attack Trump on every possible front, day after day, they strive to impart the impression that the escalating war between Trump and the CIA is a sign that the president’s administration is in a condition of severe imbalance, heading toward the edge of the cliff.

 

Two points about that: the press is trying to protect its shadow brother, the CIA; and the reason a war between a president and the CIA hasn’t broken out since JFK and the Bay of Pigs is, simply, no president has dared to challenge the CIA openly.

 

Or to put it another way, every president since Kennedy SHOULD have gone to war with the CIA, but no president did.

 

Trump, so far, is carrying out his version of a war.

 

He may stop, he may make peace, he may turn away, he may decide the consequences are too steep, but so far he’s doing, in this respect, what he should be doing, because the CIA has believed, for a long, long time that it is the president, it runs the country, it decides the important issues, it fronts for mega-corporate incursions into foreign nations, it decides foreign policy, it calculates when a regime should be overthrown, it decides how to foment wars that will end up funneling huge chunks of cash to the military-industrial complex…

 

People with attention spans of less than six seconds think rooting out corruption in high places can be done with the stroke of a pen and an executive order. No. Afraid not.

 

Digging out, exposing, and getting rid of the rot and corruption inside the CIA is on the order of turning around an oil tanker in a small lake.

 

That rot and crime wasn’t built to its present level overnight. It has been built since 1948.

 

The people who constructed it (with Allen Dulles right up there at the head of the line) assumed they could stage a coup. A national coup. They could essentially take over the country. And to a large extent, they did. JFK’s assassination removed a potential obstruction early in the game.

 

Then, nothing. Until Trump.

 

Maybe he’ll throw up his hands and forget about going after the CIA. Maybe he’ll focus on other parts of his agenda. Maybe he’ll prove to be completely ineffective and unwilling, as regards the Agency. But he has sounded an alarm, just as he sounded an alarm about Globalism, the so-called “free trade” treaties, and the brutal theft of jobs in America by those Rockefeller forces who want to torpedo economies, as a step toward exercising greater international control over the lives of billions of people.

 

The CIA and major media in this country are in lock-step. They feed each other. They produce a picture of reality that is entirely shallow and false. They want compliance, obedience, and silence. They want to make black white and white black. They want to fulfill Orwell’s 1984 prediction.

 

The best of these little “journalists” are leeches and adoring cowards. They cling to the higher-ups who run the show. The worst of them are psychologically and spiritually mongrelized sociopaths, for whom sadism is the only way of life. Like their CIA brothers, they believe (or did believe until recently) that no one could remove their entitlements.

 

Steve Bannon knows—and I’m sure he’s told Trump—that a war against the media is the best way to go right now. On many fronts, the media are the funnels for presenting inside out lies, from the CIA, to the American people.

 

In other words, if the head of the snake is too hard to cut off at the moment, go for other parts of the body.

NZ: We’re Coming For Your Water

 Considering the other water associated ills currently affecting New Zealand; Over-extraction by irrigating dairy farms, dirty dairying, the “swimmable rivers’ debacle,  the last thing we need is our precious water being practically given away to overseas corporations.  Read and weep people.
And the Environment minister wants us to believe that the amount of water taken is ‘Insignificant”. The same minister who wants us to believe a scummy, dried up river bed is a swimmable river. Sickening.

Chinese company Nongfu Spring wants more NZ water

  • 14/03/2017
  • By Isobel Ewing

 http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2017/03/should-companies-pay-royalties-to-export-water.html

A Chinese company wants to buy a Bay of Plenty water bottling plant and dramatically increase its water take, and it will get the water virtually for free.

Otakiri Springs currently pays only $2003 in compliance costs each year, allowing it to take 700,000 litres a day. The consent doesn’t expire until 2026.

Now prospective owner Nongfu Spring Natural Mineral Water wants to increase the water take to 5 million litres a day. It’s the same aquifer where New Zealand company Oravida takes 400,000 litres a day.

Whakatane District Councillor Mike van der Boom says companies are taking a precious resource from his area and not paying a cent for it.

“We’re subsidising them to make a profit,” he says.

“We just want our water preserved, a sustainable take – what is a sustainable take? Do they know what that is? I have a lot of questions and not many answers.”

Environment Minister Nick Smith maintains his stance that charging companies to take water is ridiculous

“If parties opposite want to start imposing new taxes on the use of water, where are they going to stop? Will air be charged for next?”

But Parliament’s opposition parties are united – get water, pay a royalty.

“We do believe that commercial businesses that are taking water out of the ground for free and then making a profit out of it should pay for the use of that resource,” Greens co-leader James Shaw says.

New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters also says there should be a royalty paid.

“They will pay to export it offshore, and the money will go back to the local community from where the water was extracted in the first place.”

The Overseas Investment Office is currently assessing the sale of Otakiri Springs to Nongfu Spring.

Otakiri Springs has been contacted for comment about its plans.

The Deep State Just Broke Into Open Warfare: by Tyler Durden

 

The Deep State Just Broke Into Open Warfare

Tyler Durden's picture

Via Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,

The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle – it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation.

When do the unlimited powers of the Intelligence/Security agencies threaten America’s domestic and global national interests? The CIA and its political enablers claim the agency’s essentially unlimited powers, partially revealed by Wikileak’s Vault 7, pose no threat to America’s interests, since they are intended to “defend” American interests.

This is the rationale presented by neocon CIA allies in both political parties: the CIA can’t possibly threaten America’s interests because the CIA defines America’s interests.

This is the wormhole down which civil liberties and democracy have drained. It is an extraordinarily defining moment in American history when the director of the FBI publicly declares that there is no such thing as “absolute privacy” in the U.S.

In effect, privacy is now contingent on the level of interest the Security State has in the private conversation/data. If we read the U.S. Constitution, we do not find such contingencies: civil liberties are absolute. Post-1790 presidents have temporarily mooted civil liberties in time of war, and the CIA-led camp of the Deep State has justified its unlimited powers by effectively declared “a state of war is now permanent and enduring.”

So what’s left to defend if America has become the enemy of civil liberties and democracy, i.e. become a totalitarian state ruled by Security Services and their political henchmen and apologists?

I have long suggested that the tectonic plates of the Deep State are shifting as the ruling consensus has eroded. Some elements of the Deep State–what I call the progressive wing, which is (ironically to some) anchored in the military services– now view the neocon-CIA (Security State)-Wall Street elements as profoundly dangerous to America’s long-term interests, both domestically and globally.

Is the Deep State Fracturing into Disunity? (March 14, 2014)

I have suggested that this “rogue Deep State” quietly aided Donald Trump (by subtly undermining Hillary Clinton’s campaign) as the last best chance to save the nation from the neocon’s over-reach that the Establishment’s Wall Street-funded leadership (Bush, Clinton, Obama, et al.) has overseen–including granting the CIA and its allies virtually unlimited powers unhindered by any effective oversight.

Does a Rogue Deep State Have Trump’s Back? (January 18, 2017)

This profound split in the Deep State has now broken into open warfare. The first salvo was the absurd propaganda campaign led by Establishment mouthpieces The New York Times and The Washington Post claiming Russian agents had “hacked” the U.S. election to favor Trump.

This fact-free propaganda campaign failed–having no evidence didn’t work quite as well as the NYT and Wapo expected– and so the propaganda machine launched the second salvo, accusing Trump of being a Russian patsy.

The evidence for this claim was equally laughable, and that campaign has only made the Establishment, its propaganda mouthpieces and the neocon Deep State look desperate and foolish on the global and domestic stages.

The desperate neocon Deep State and its Democratic Party allies went to absurd lengths to undermine Trump via the “Boris ad Natasha” strategy of accusing Trump of collaborating with the Evil Russkies, even going so far as to briefly exhume former President G.W. Bush from deep-freeze to make a fool of himself, saying the Trump-Evil Russkies connection should be “investigated.”

Now the rogue elements have launched a counterstrike–Vault 7. Here is one example of how quickly the CIA’s over-reach has been absorbed by the body politic:

I highly recommend reading Wikileak’s summary of Vault 7: Vault 7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed.

We now know that the CIA maintained a special program (UMBRAGE) to mimic Russia-based hackers and create false trails back to fictitious “Russian hackers.” A number of highly experienced analysts who reviewed the supposed “Russian hacks” had suggested the “evidence” smelled of false trails– not just bread crumbs, but bread crumbs heavy-handedly stenciled “this is Russian malware.”

The body count from Vault 7 has not yet been tallied, but it wouldn’t surprise me if former President Obama and his team eventually end up as political casualties. Non-partisan observers are noting all this over-reach occurred on Obama’s watch, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed that one of Obama’s last executive orders stripped away the last shreds of oversight of what could be “shared” (or invented) between the Security Agencies.

Indeed, the entire leadership of the Democratic Party seems to have placed all their chips on the increasingly unviable claim that the CIA is the squeaky clean defender of America.

Vault 7 is not just political theater–it highlights the core questions facing the nation: what is left to defend if civil liberties and democratically elected oversight have been reduced to Potemkin-village travesties?

If there are no limits on CIA powers and surveillance, then what is left of civil liberties and democracy? Answer: nothing.

The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle–it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation. Citizens who define America’s interests as civil liberties and democracy should be deeply troubled by the Establishment’s surrender of these in favor of a National Security State with essentially no limits.

Americans tasked with defending America’s “interests” globally should be asking if a CIA/NSA et al. with unlimited power is detrimental to America’s soft and hard power globally, and toxic to its influence.

The answer is obvious: a CIA with unlimited power and the backing of a corrupt Establishment and media is more than detrimental to America’s soft and hard power globally–it is disastrous and potentially fatal to America’s interests, standing and influence.

Those of us on the sidelines can only hope that the progressive wing of the Deep State, the rogue elements who see the terrible danger of an unlimited National Security State, will succeed in undermining the powerful political support for this toxic totalitarian regime.
