No doubt, anti-Iran propaganda out of Washington abounds. There are numerous Zionist-run think-tanks (sic) that make US Foreign Policy – and are ratcheting up anti-Iran anger in the US, but targeting especially the Iranian population at home, in Iran. The notorious chief-villain of these agencies, by the way, highly subsidized by the US State Department, and perhaps even more important, by the powerful US military-security complex, is the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy (FDD).

The approval rating of U.S. President Donald Trump remains stable despite last week`s guilty conviction of his former campaign chairman Pual Manafort and guilty plea by his 12-year personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who accused Trump of directing him to pay rush money against the U.S. election campaign finance laws during the 2016 U.S. elections.

With his back against the well after longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg was granted immunity by US prosecutors one day after the National Enquirer`s David Packer received a similar deal, on Saturday morning Trump continued his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, accusing the former senator of not understanding "what is happening" at his Justice Department.In a pair of tweets Saturday morning, the president wrote that Sessions was allowing Mueller "and his gang of 17 Angry Dems" to have a "field day" at the Justice Department with his decision last year to recuse himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign.

Lanny Davis is the attorney representing Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen. Here is a lesson in legal wordsmithing. This attorney Mr. Davis cleverly avoids any direct answer and the press does not even understand his answer. He specifically states that Cohen did not plead in his own word, that the prosecutors wrote the script to which he has to plead or go to jail for decades. He keeps saying (listen closely) that the “prosecutors are saying” to which Cohen “agreed” under oath.
21:19 [Armstrong Economics] (E)
The FAKE NEWS is banning together to try to overthrow Trump and the Republicans this election season. They do not like to be called FAKE NEWS and act as if their “opinion” should dominate the country. Far too many newspapers “endorse” candidates and that is taking a political position rather than being objective reporters of the news. The Boston Globe has been leading a charge to coordinate all the press in the country to target Trump and effectively overthrow the government.

QUESTION: It is so confusing. Hillary took money from foreign governments which is treason and that’s ok. Cohen pays two women to keep their mouth shut and that’s a crime? It seems that this is all one giant game to prevent any reform. They seem to select who to prosecute not because they did something. What is your opinion? ANSWER: The interesting aspect is they have succeeded in turning this into all about Trump as a person. The real story that shows how stupid people are for they hate Trump yet cannot really say what he has done to them to warrant this type of hatred.

Ever since the federal investigations of President Donald Trump and his lackeys began, most outside observers have argued it was highly unlikely that Trump himself would face criminal prosecution. The conventional wisdom has been that federal prosecutors would bow to long-standing tradition and decades-old Justice Department legal opinions and not seek an indictment of a sitting president. Trump might face impeachment in Congress, which is a political process, but it seemed far-fetched that prosecutors would try to send him directly from the White House to prison.

Last week, in response to a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit, the Department of Justice released 412 pages of heavily redacted documents relating to FISA warrants targeting Page.

He has been calling for peace with Russia and in the Middle East since his campaign days. His supporters were vehemently opposed to military intervention in Syria ...

Wenn sie nicht weiterwissen, kommt ein neuer Spin, der noch absurder klingt – so kann man Berichterstattung über US-Präsident Donald Trump dort charakterisieren, wo man Barack Obama, George Bush und Bill Clinton (und Hillary) zu Füßen liegt. „Ist der US-Präsident ein russischer Agent?“ fragt etwa Eric Frey im „Standard“, der vor Wolfgang Petritsch Präsident der Marshall Plan Stiftung Austria war. Wie z.B. der Sender CBC bezieht er sich auf Jonathan Chait, der eine Theorie darüber im „New York Mag“ entwickelt (das ausschließlich negativ über Trump schreibt). Der Text von Chait wurde vor dem Gipfeltreffen zwischen Trump und Putin in Helsinki verfasst und trägt den Titel „Will Trump Be Meeting With His Counterpart — Or His Handler?“. Freilich muss Chait dazu von der These ausgehen, dass Trump nur wegen angeblicher russischer Hacks gegen Clinton gewonnen hat und ausblenden, was die Clinton-Kampagne mit Russland zu tun hatte bzw. welche Rolle die Clintons beim Uranium One-Deal spielten.

At the time of the raid, I tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of @RealDonaldTrump-Russia collusion.”

There are those who refuse to accept how deviant and perverse the underlying progressive ideology of Democrats really is; however, that tribe is shrinking. More and more Americans are waking up to understand and accept the commonality. The latest example from San Antonio, Texas, is not an exception; this is who Democrats are. Do not look away.

As the “Q Anon” movement races into worldwide relevance, the White House press corps still refuses to address this growing phenomenon. The Q movement — predicated on the revelations of an apparent government insider named “Q” — seeks to expose the globalist criminal conspiracy that operates from within the confines of the U.S. federal government. Q alleges or implies that human trafficking, sexual exploitation of minors, narcotics smuggling, and unspeakable violence are being perpetrated by a small number of globalist elites, including those in the U.S. intelligence agencies ...

Repost: A “Countermeasure” is a measure or action taken to counter or offset a preceding one. Politically speaking, the deployment of countermeasures is a tactic used by professional politicians in Washington DC to counter incoming public inquiry and protect themselves from anger expressed by the electorate. Weaponized government takes action and creates victims. Beyond the strategy – the countermeasures are politicians assigned a role to control the incoming righteous inquiry from voters who find out about the weaponized or corrupt governmental action.

It is no secret that in America, political change is a slow and agonizing process. For years, lawmakers have paid lip service to the topic of decriminalizing cannabis while millions have continued to suffer as their medicine remains “illegal” and millions more are arrested for possessing a plant that is legal, in some form, in over half of the country. Thankfully, the United States Senate has finally begun to take meaningful steps towards rectifying this injustice.
