The Key Reason DC Hates President Trump – It’s a Big Club, and He Ain’t in It…

Something 99% of American voters do not understand.  Congress doesn’t actually write legislation. The last item of legislation written by congress was sometime around the mid 1990’s. Modern legislation is sub-contracted to a segment of operations in DC known as K-Street.  That’s where the lobbyists reside.

Lobbyists write the laws; congress sells the laws; lobbyists then pay congress commissions for passing their laws. That’s the modern legislative business in DC.

CTH often describes the system with the phrase: “There are Trillions at Stake.” The process of creating legislation is behind that phrase. DC politics is not quite based on the ideas that frame most voter’s reference points.

With people taking notice of DC politics for the first time; and with people not as familiar with the purpose of DC politics; perhaps it is valuable to provide clarity.

Most people think when they vote for a federal politician -a House or Senate representative- they are voting for a person who will go to Washington DC and write or enact legislation. This is the old-fashioned “schoolhouse rock” perspective based on decades past. There is not a single person in congress writing legislation or laws.

In modern politics not a single member of the House of Representatives or Senator writes a law, or puts pen to paper to write out a legislative construct. This simply doesn’t happen.

Over the past several decades a system of constructing legislation has taken over Washington DC that more resembles a business operation than a legislative body. Here’s how it works right now.

“Houses of worship” declared “essential services” and allowed to open now: President Trump

In deeply fundamental ways, freedom of religion is our most basic right and our most important. Freedom of religion must also mean freedom of  philosophy, thought, belief, cognition, psychology, mentality, sensibility, being. Freedom of religion is the lifeblood of the individual as responsibly defined and acted on by that individual.

Our beautiful system honors the individual by protecting the rights of every individual to freedom of religion, speech, assembly and, I wish, association. This system depends on our exercising our rights fully and responsibly. Individual responsibility is implicit in our system and crucial to its smooth operation.

Three recent deep-background stories that describe how political spying happened under Obama

The first article tells the story of a Treasury Department whistleblower:

President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers.

…By March 2016, the whistleblower said she and a colleague, who was detailed to Treasury from the intelligence community, became convinced that the surveillance of Flynn was not tied to legitimate criminal or national security concerns, but was straight-up political surveillance among other illegal activity occurring at Treasury.

“When I showed it to her, what she said, ‘Oh, sh%t!’ and I knew right then and there that I was right – this was some shady stuff,” the whistleblower said.

“It wasn’t just him,” the whistleblower said. “They were targeting other U.S. citizens, as well.” (EXCLUSIVE: The Treasury Department Spied on Flynn, Manafort, and the Trump Family, Says Whistleblower)

The second article takes us much deeper into Obama-era spying within the Treasury Department, IRS, and more:

An exclusive Treasury Department whistleblower outline in the Ohio Star is almost an absolute match to our research {Go Deep} on how President Obama constructed the political surveillance network during his second term.

According to the article in mid-December 2015 the Treasury whistleblower started noticing data-search transactions with the Treasury Dept. for specific people that aligned with the 2016 GOP primary.  The searches included Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump and his family as well as certain members of congress. (Secondary Confirmation – Treasury Whistleblower Complaint Aligns Directly With President Obama’s Political Surveillance Activity…)

The third article describes even deeper and more widespread methods of domestic political spying during the Obama administration:

For years, Sally Yates and James Clapper were acutely aware that the Obama administration was engaged in illegal domestic surveillance.

In August of 2014, CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery met with Senior Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Royce C. Lamberth, one-time presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.  Montgomery handed over to Judge Lamberth a cache of Special Access Program (SAP) classified documents. (Obama Exposed: There Were No FISA Warrants, There Was No Incidental Surveillance, There Was The Hammer — The Persecution Of General Flynn)

It appears Gen Flynn was not actually “unmasked” because he was himself the target of a rogue counter-intelligence operation and his call with Kislyak was not discovered through “incidental collection.” What’s worse is the possibility that candidate and then president, Donald Trump, had also been a target of a rogue counter-intelligence operation.

Psychedelics and religious experience

It is well-known that psychedelic drugs can induce religious experiences, as well as cure depression and other psychological problems.

Many people today and in the past have had these experiences and praised them effusively. In recent decades, scientific studies have corroborated this side of the history of most of the world’s religions.

A new study published last month adds even more weight to the religious value of psychedelic drugs.

..Respondents reported the primary senses involved in the encounter were visual and extrasensory (e.g. telepathic). The most common descriptive labels for the entity were being, guide, spirit, alien, and helper. Although 41% of respondents reported fear during the encounter, the most prominent emotions both in the respondent and attributed to the entity were love, kindness, and joy. Most respondents endorsed that the entity had the attributes of being conscious, intelligent, and benevolent, existed in some real but different dimension of reality, and continued to exist after the encounter. Respondents endorsed receiving a message (69%) or a prediction about the future (19%) from the experience. More than half of those who identified as atheist before the experience no longer identified as atheist afterwards. The experiences were rated as among the most meaningful, spiritual, and psychologically insightful lifetime experiences, with persisting positive changes in life satisfaction, purpose, and meaning attributed to the experiences.

Findings show relationship between atmospheric and biologic electrical activity

That there is a clear relationship between atmospheric and biological electrical activity is in itself interesting. And also it may extrapolate to an even larger network of many organisms reacting together to the atmosphere and each other.

The following article describes medical and other ramifications of these links:

Most electrical activity in vertebrates and invertebrates occurs at extremely low frequencies, and the origin — and medical potential — of these frequencies have eluded scientists. Now a Tel Aviv University study provides evidence for a direct link between electrical fields in the atmosphere and those found in living organisms, including humans.

The study’s findings may change established notions about electrical activity in living organisms, paving the way for revolutionary, new medical treatments. Illnesses such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s are related to abnormalities in the electrical activity of the body. (Electrical Activity in Living Organisms Mirrors Electrical Fields in Atmosphere)

Why did the IG Report completely ignore Stefan Halper’s lies to the FBI about @GenFlynn , and leave open the possibility that Halper may even have triggered the opening of the CI case against him?

Good question and a good read:

US Galveston National Laboratory investigated for Wuhan bio-lab ties

Galveston National Laboratory (GNL), part of the University of Texas system, has become a focus for investigators trying to track down the origin of COVID-19.

GNL is the latest concern in a wide-ranging investigation into US-China academic and scientific ties.

“Universities provided unguarded access to sensitive if unclassified data; American research institutions became hubs for information collection and the recruitment of spies; and universities with large numbers of Chinese students engaged in self-censorship lest they offend the Chinese government,” said Patrick Cronin, Asia-Pacific security chair for the Hudson Institute. (Prominent university bio lab urged to reveal extent of relationship with Wuhan lab at center of coronavirus outbreak)

The linked article has a good deal of information and is well-worth reading in-full. For example, a number of US investigations have:

…cast scrutiny on China’s Thousand Talents Plan, an illustrious program tailored to recruit leading academics and promote domestic research. The contracts signed for the plan, to the ire of lawmakers and federal officials, mandated that “participating scientists abide by Chinese law, keep the contract secret, recruit postdocs and sign over any intellectual property rights to the sponsoring Chinese institution.”

According to concerned lawmakers, the contracts thus offer incentives for scientists to set up “shadow labs” in China that emulate U.S. taxpayer-funded research at their home institutions.

But with the novel coronavirus having claimed more than 60,000 lives in the United States alone, the Wuhan-U.S. academia trail is now being met with an even more discerning eye from Washington.

“The scope of China’s exploitation of our open universities, including medical, biology, and other scientific labs, is only recently coming into focus,” Cronin added. “At the end of 2019, the FBI and the NIH announced they were investigating 180 separate cases involving more than 70 institutions

“In almost all cases, the alleged theft of biomedical research information was done by Chinese citizens or Americans of Chinese descent. Bit by bit, China found ways into government scientific labs.”

One point I don’t see mentioned often enough is if COVID-19 evolved in nature and jumped to humans at the Wuhan market, or even at the Wuhan bio-lab, what is the original animal host population of the virus, what animal is it, and where is it? If no host population can be solidly identified, no matter how “natural” the virus looks nor how “natural” its evolution may appear, a more likely explanation for its capacity for human transmission is it was bred in a laboratory by human beings.

An open Letter to Attorney General Bill Barr

This open letter is well-worth reading. My guess is over 50% of Americans are at least familiar with the topics discussed and would agree that full transparency is imperative if we are going to have a government trusted & respected by the people it supposedly represents.

Corruption within the Obama administration (including holdovers in the Trump admin) was so widespread, all branches of government were implicated. The author of this letter argues that the FISA court (FISC) may be our last hope because the FISC has the power to call out government actors who presented false information to it.

That said, the rot in Washington is much deeper. Thousands of illicit searches of the NSA database were conducted against American citizens. Michael Flynn was almost certainly framed by the FBI. The CIA, guided by John Brennan, almost certainly spied illegally on the Trump campaign and presidency. Crossfire Hurricane was as much a means to hide past offenses of the FBI & CIA as it was to continue with them. Mueller and his team almost certainly knew full-well there had been no “collusion” with Russia, and yet they persisted in harassing the president and his people for two years.

Former HPSCI Chairman, and current HPSCI ranking member, Devin Nunes appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss several matters of importance. One of the critical topics touched is the ongoing investigations of Obama era intelligence and political surveillance via the DOJ-NSD FBI, CIA, DNI and State Dept.

Representative Nunes hits the key point when he highlights current redactions and current decisions to classify ongoing investigative documents. It is critically important to accept this reality. There are current intelligence officers and career officials in place hiding material by labeling evidence as classified. A recent example was the December 9, 2019, inspector general report about the manipulation of FISA. (Open Letter to Attorney General Bill Barr – “We The People” Already Know…)

Yet another credible claim COVID-19 is a manufactured virus

There have been several claims that COVID-19 is a virus manufactured in the Wuhan bio-lab. Indian scientists, for example, made this claim as early as January 2020.

In a recent interview, the French virologist Luc Montagnier repeats that claim explaining why he believes COVID-19 was spliced together with elements of the HIV virus in a research project in Wuhan looking for a vaccine for HIV.

“The Wuhan city laboratory has specialized in these coronaviruses since the early 2000s. They have expertise in this area,” he says. The professor explains having analyzed “in the smallest details” the sequence with his mathematician colleague Jean-Claude Perrez. “We were not the first, since a group of Indian researchers tried to publish a study which shows that the complete genome of this coronavirus [has] sequences of another virus, which is HIV, the virus AIDS”. (Nobel Prize Winner French Virologist Confirm COVID-19 HIV Study)

Montagnier won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for his discovery of the AIDS virus.

Interestingly, IF COVID-19 is man-made, THEN it will probably be unstable, which means it will tend to break down after a number of reproductions in host bodies. And this means that the so far unexplained sudden disappearance of infections in Italy and elsewhere MAY be the result of the unstable virus simply breaking down.

And if this is so, we may be able to shelve the idea that the Wuhan lab deliberately created a bio-weapon. Instead, they had made a virus for research and were “only” sloppy with their contamination protocols.

But that does not let the CCP of the hook because the CCP, with help from WHO, covered up the seriousness and human transmissiblity of the virus for some six weeks. During that time, CCP allowed people from Wuhan to travel around the world knowing full-well they were infectious. During that same time period, CCP stopped travel from Wuhan to other parts of China.

See the link above for more on Montagnier’s interview and links describing the January paper by Indian scientists.

Nick Bryant on the Franklin Scandal, child trafficking, and more

This interview happened in 2017 but is well-worth listening to today. As bad as the Franklin Scandal was, it was “just” one tentacle on a much larger beast. And as bad as child abuse for sexual purposes is, that too is just one (even larger) tentacle on a much larger beast. That beast itself also murders, maims, and tortures children, both physically and psychologically.

It does this for various reasons: to cover up crimes and discredit witnesses, but also to destroy the communities the children belong to. I have personal knowledge of one, now deceased, actor in the Franklin Scandal. His name is Peter Citron. I know enough about Citron to be certain that he belonged to a large group of prominent child traffickers. And I also know that he was connected, directly or indirectly, to another group that maims and kills children and young people.

It is very difficult to prove child trafficking for reasons Bryant goes into. Children who are abused develop psychological problems and become marginalized. They also feel fear, shame, and profound doubt that anyone will believe them or ever do anything about any of it. Children who have been maimed are even less able to come forward. Those who have been murder obviously can do nothing at all.
