Without Fear or Favor?

In April 2016, the FBI began a counterintelligence investigation of presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, based upon a dubious dossier full of lies and false allegations, compiled by a foreign citizen who was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign. (Read here, here, here, and here for a comprehensive overview of the totality of this mendacity.)

Spy vs. Spy

As suspected, there were spies among the peaceful protesters at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Comes now a report indicating that the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), not to be confused with the Capitol Police, activated a hitherto unheard of unit to surveil, perhaps illegally, those who protested the stolen election.

Why Red Flag Laws Won’t Work

After the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, TX, an allegedly “bipartisan” group of legislators are trying to come up with new gun laws to, in their minds, stop such incidents. Among their ideas: “red flag laws” at the state and federal levels.

A Quiz

This is a quiz as well as a presentation of an example of shameless gaslighting.

The New Iron Curtain

Today is the 75th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech, otherwise known as “The Sinews of Peace”, in which Churchill warned about the dangers of communism.

Delivered on March 5, 1946, in Fulton, MO, Churchill touched upon issues that remain pertinent today, as a new Iron Curtain has descended across the United States Capitol, circling the entire complex, separating Congress (our so-called representatives) from We the People.

What was once open and free to all, a symbol of our great Republic, a shining city on a hill, is now a fortress, militarized against the Republic’s own citizens, manned by thousands of uniformed and armed  National Guard troops.

Revisiting the Passport Breach

It’s reported that an Inforwars reporter by the name of Millie Weaver has been arrested, allegedly because an Ohio grand jury referred her and her significant other on a burglary charge, about which the reporter herself seems to know nothing.

What’s of interest to this blog is that the reporter was on the verge of releasing a documentary about the Deep State “Shadow Government.”

A Timely Reminder

Cleaning clutter, whiling away dreary locked-down hours, I ran across a little book, stored away among the effects of a small but mighty man, a legendary figure in our family, who fled to the U.S. as a political refugee during the early 1920s. His copy of the book, What Every Citizen Should Know, was printed in 1940, at the beginning of WWII, apparently a gift from a friend in the American Legion. I was particularly struck by the following two pages from the book.

Finally, the Horowitz Report

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s long-awaited report about FISA abuses perpetrated by the Obama Deep State is due tomorrow.

It remains to be seen whether this report will be a (relative) whitewash or whether it will be the harbinger of swamp draining to come.

Here We Go – Impeachment 2.0

The Democrats are going to meet today to decide on impeaching President Trump, with a statement by House Speaker Pelosi to follow.

Impeachment. Not over the Russian collusion/obstruction fiasco but, this time, over a “whistleblower” complaint that is based upon hearsay. A complaint that nobody in Congress has even seen. A complaint that has already been determined by Department of Justice lawyers to not fall under the law concerning intelligence community whistleblowers, simply because the person who made the complaint is not complaining about anyone within the intelligence community and the person the complaint allegedly concerns is not under the purview of the intelligence community.
