A 'Safe Space' Society Is A Totalitarian Nightmare

Authored by Kurt Schlichter, op-ed via,

As the undisputed star of the new film No Safe Spaces – the hit documentary on academia’s descent into Orwellian tyranny features a quick shot of a lawyer letter I wrote to some collegiate gulag apparatchiks – I wholeheartedly recommend that you go see it. 

Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager take you on a guided tour of the insanity and evil that has gripped academia, and it’s utterly terrifying. You need to see it not merely to gape at the freak show but to learn what’s coming for society as a whole. The dreary conformity factories that pretend to be providing our next generation of leaders with a higher education have instead embarked on a campaign of indoctrination designed to manufacture a generation of goose-stepping creeps who use their bizarre collection of buzzwords and fetishes as weapons to suppress any kind of dissent.

And the problem is that this PC Nazism is not just limited to academia. Eventually, these daddy-issue cadres are going to get out into the world and contaminate all of our institutions even worse than they are contaminated now. We’ve seen weeks of pretentious ruling caste losers presuming to lecture us on how we should fix the messes they and their pals made. Imagine if they compounded their failure with the desire to burn you at the stake for refusing to concede that a dude can get pregnant.

A dude can’t get pregnant, not ever. And there’s a whole generation of future elitists who would want to cancel you permanently for daring to state this indisputable fact.

The key to understanding what is happening on campuses, and increasingly in society as a whole, is to discard your bourgeois notions of reason and the presumption of good faith. What’s kind of funny is to watch people shake their heads at the incoherence of the leftist lies – what these people say is manifestly false and usually both contradictory and hypocritical. They have no evidence to support their claims, and they ignore contrary evidence. This freaks out the squares because normal people approach disputes with the understanding that facts and evidence and arguments can change one’s positions. But with these people, that doesn’t happen. It can’t happen, because they are not engaged in argument. Rather, they simply assert whatever nonsense they believe will increase their own power.

That’s all it is. This PC leftist garbage is simply about power.

You can’t prove your innocence or change their minds because actual facts are beside the point. The point is to generate a narrative that results in you being deprived of the moral capacity to assert your own rights and interests. You are disenfranchised, totally, by the moral failure that is your race or your sex or your religion or your sexual preference or whatever has been designated as bad this week. That is why we get evil concepts like “white privilege,” “mansplaining” and “heteronormativity” tossed around as if they are conceptual trump cards that instantly silence you merely by being asserted.

Now, as someone of good faith who strives to operate in a universe that makes sense, you might observe that these kinds of prejudgments based on race and sex and so forth seem an awful lot like prejudice based on race and sex and so forth, and you would be right because that is exactly what they are. And you would scratch your head because aren’t these adolescent inquisitors supposedly really upset about prejudice based on race and sex and so forth?

Except they aren’t, because they don’t care about prejudice, except to the extent they can use it as a weapon to get what they want. The left is not against prejudice or bigotry. It is actively in favor of both. It’s just that the targets change and morph based on necessity. Go on social media, if you dare, and find a black conservative or a gay conservative or a conservative woman and see what crap they take from the loving left. The crude hatred would shock and appall even the Democrats who invented and filled the ranks of the KKK. The left is supposed to be in favor of black people and gay people and women people and it takes only a few seconds to realize that this is utterly false. They don’t care about bigotry or prejudice. They care about leftist power, and if bigotry and prejudice help them get more of it then the left is all in.

On the upside, they often turn on each other in internal power struggles where the radicals attempt to out-woke each other to become the king/queen/non-binary monarch of the hill.You’re a person of color? I’ll see your race card and raise you the fact that I was born Dennis but now I’m Denise.
Today on campus, these creeps have power because the administrators tend to be cowed by the left when not in active cahoots with it. The left can even LARP violent revolution because the schools hold back the cops who ought to be beating down and hooking up these black-masked punks. The scary thing is that someday, some of these quad gestapo types are going to be in real positions of power in real society, and they do not believe in rules and they do not believe in rights for anyone who opposes them. Their sole goal is their own power. And to increase their power, they need to take power from someone else. You are the someone else.

In a society they control, you will have no rights, no voice, and no future. Leftism always ends in tyranny and murder, which is why we’re blessed to have the Second Amendment. And if you are ever disarmed and at the mercy of these aspiring monsters, the only safe space will be a mass grave.

Wikipedia Fraud EXPOSED: Troll farms and the CIA have hijacked the once open platform

(( - 12/9/2019 -- Somewhere, USA -- For those who value knowledge, this comes as a sad surprise.  Wikipedia once was a free and open source encyclopedia, where anyone could contribute.

It was never perfect, but it was usually pretty accurate, except about controversial topics, current events, conspiracies, and some other unique topics.  But starting in 2016 the quality started deteriorating rapidly across the board.  We wanted to know how, so we signed up.  What we learned was shocking.

We need to get into the weeds here a bit to understand how this scam operates.  Wikipedia was a system setup by Jimmy Wales a long time ago, and the rules have evolved over time but still maintain the same guidelines established in the beginning.  No one really owns Wikipedia which is perfect for the Elite because there's no one to point the finger at.  Best part for them - all the moderators called "SysOps" are anonymous.  There is a hierarchy that requires you make 500 edits before having more privileges.  At any point, if a SysOp doesn't like an edit or comment you make, the threats start, you can be blocked.  They can ban your IP.  You can always READ but you cannot EDIT.  Of course this can all be circumvented, but here's the point:  They are about form not essence.  

The good and honest Wikipedia editors that aren't trolls, they are sticklers for rules and are trying to build an open public document about everything which is a monumental task - FOR FREE.  Everything is volunteer so no one gets any sort of 'benefit' for editing.  Here are the basics of the rules (in summary):
Anyone can apply to be an editor, no credentials or experience or identity verification.  Could be a child, or it could be the CIA, could be Chinese Intelligence.  They only track your IP.  Number of edits works towards your 'rank' the more edits and the more time that elapses the higher up the ranks you go.  After 500 edits and 30 days you can be an "Extended Confirmed User" at which point you can apply to be an Administrator or "SysOp".  When you are a SysOp, you can do things like undo changes, block users, delete pages, and modify fully protected pages.  Some pages are so controversial, only SysOps can modify them - such as the page for Donald Trump.  Try for yourself, on any page click 'edit source' at the top - if it's protected it will say 'view source' and you'll see this:
trump12019 12 02 19h58 05
These policies all seem logical and reasonable for a system which is completely open to the public.  But any open system is also open to hackers and exploitation, as we shall shortly see.

What we noticed is that when editing unpopular topics or those not involving current events, there is little editorial oversight.  

But when we edit pages like Trump Impeachment, Anderson Cooper, or Zero Hedge - content that is not approved by the editors (based on their opinion) is removed in minutes.  Having some experience with intelligence gathering and operations, we noted a connection between all the pages where information is quickly sanitized: the CIA.   Most people take Wikipedia at face value - it must be true if it's in Wikipedia.  They are using this laziness to attempt to exploit reality, in a much more organized and methodical manner as compared to the TV exploitation.  Let's first look at some public examples of what's going on.

According to Reuters, a man by the name of Virgil Griffith developed a tool WikiScanner which tracks the IPs of who is editing Wikipedia:
People using CIA and FBI computers have edited entries in the online encyclopedia Wikipedia on topics including the Iraq war and the Guantanamo prison, according to a new tracing program.  The changes may violate Wikipedia’s conflict-of-interest guidelines, a spokeswoman for the site said on Thursday.The program, WikiScanner, was developed by Virgil Griffith of the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico and posted this month on a Web site that was quickly overwhelmed with searches.  The program allows users to track the source of computers used to make changes to the popular Internet encyclopedia where anyone can submit and edit entries.  WikiScanner revealed that CIA computers were used to edit an entry on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. A graphic on casualties was edited to add that many figures were estimated and were not broken down by class.  Another entry on former CIA chief William Colby was edited by CIA computers to expand his career history and discuss the merits of a Vietnam War rural pacification program that he headed.  Aerial and satellite images of the U.S. prison for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, were removed using a computer traced to the FBI, WikiScanner showed.  CIA spokesman George Little said he could not confirm whether CIA computers were used in the changes, adding that “the agency always expects its computer systems to be used responsibly.”  The FBI did not have an immediate response.  Computers at numerous other organizations and companies were found to have been involved in editing articles related to them.

 That's not all.  There's even grassroots reporting about "The Dark Side of Wikipedia" from this report:
August 21, 2016 — Right now, this very second, people are busily editing away on the website Wikipedia, at a rate of more than ten edits per second. There are over five million articles written in English on Wikipedia, with a thousand being added every day.
But there's a dark side to Wikipedia you probably don't know about. The promise of accurate, neutral articles and privacy for contributors is often just a mirage, according to two insiders. They say they've been left battle-scarred after troubling personal encounters with the world's most popular encyclopedia.

It's billed as "the encyclopedia anyone can edit." But for many, it's the opposite.
Greg Kohs is among the blocked. Banned, he says, for challenging Wikipedia policies.
Kohs: Just in the past four hours, 500 IP addresses and users have been blocked from editing Wikipedia.

In 2012, Kohs helped start an opposing website called, "Wikipediocracy," to expose what he calls Wikipedia's "misinformation, defamation and general nonsense."
Sharyl: So Wikipedia does censor users?

Kohs: Absolutely. In a given day, Wikipedia administrators typically are blocking about 1,000 different IP addresses.
Sharyl: 1,000 a day?
Kohs: 1,000 a day. Yes.
When Kohs ran afoul of Wikipedia, he was drawn into an unseen cyberworld. One where he says volunteer editors dole out punishment and retaliation, privacy is violated and special interests control information.

Is it fair to assume, that if they were doing it - they continue to do it?  Or to ask the question differently - if they have something to hide - why wouldn't they?
In a 2007 article on Wired, they name editor-trolls such as the CIA, Diebold, and a political campaign:
On November 17th, 2005, an anonymous Wikipedia user deleted 15 paragraphs from an article on e-voting machine-vendor Diebold, excising an entire section critical of the company's machines. While anonymous, such changes typically leave behind digital fingerprints offering hints about the contributor, such as the location of the computer used to make the edits.  In this case, the changes came from an IP address reserved for the corporate offices of Diebold itself. And it is far from an isolated case. A new data-mining service launched Monday traces millions of Wikipedia entries to their corporate sources, and for the first time puts comprehensive data behind longstanding suspicions of manipulation, which until now have surfaced only piecemeal in investigations of specific allegations....Wal-Mart has a series of relatively small changes in 2005 that that burnish the company's image on its own entry while often leaving criticism in, changing a line that its wages are less than other retail stores to a note that it pays nearly double the minimum wage, for example. Another leaves activist criticism on community impact intact, while citing a "definitive" study showing Wal-Mart raised the total number of jobs in a community.
It's not surprising that large organizations infiltrate open systems in order to defend their own existence.  But there's a huge difference between Wal-Mart (WMT) and the CIA: accountability.  The CIA is a publicly funded enterprise, who has the ultimate opaque mask to hide behind: it's classified.  In fact, if you ask any significant question to the CIA via the compliant FOIA request process, you'll get the standard:  "CIA cannot confirm or deny this fact, nor can CIA confirm or deny that there is knowledge of such fact".  What we need is another Church Committee.  

About the Mainstream Media

One conclusion of our analysis is that we should include Wikipedia as part of the Mainstream Media (MSM) as some call it.  Wikipedia is part of the Establishment by all means - it's no different from an information perspective than the CIA's very own CNN.  So a discussion about the MSM and CNN is appropriate here.  Wikipedia's main citation, the #1 'news' source and #1 most credible news organization is - you've guessed it - CNN.  Even though CNN was outed as a complete fraud lying and creating fake stories in an attempt to smear political enemies, Wikipedia is having none of it.  Editors even said that video recordings by project veritas were 'deep fakes' and videos were 'altered' - who do they think they are kidding?  Undercover whistleblowers risk their jobs and lives to expose dirty organizations like CNN and we are supposed to believe that it's all made up?  Of course they would say that, as it's CNN who makes up lies about people they want to smear, while parading as a legitimate news organization.  CNN is no different than the Russian Prava (which means in Russian "Truth") used during Soviet times to spread government propaganda and politically assassinate enemies of the state.  Project Veritas exposed how CNN is left leaning organization with a pro-Democrat bias, but we need to elaborate this point as this is another trick the Elite play on the populace.  This is not a political issue, CNN is pro-Establishment.  Republicans (for example the Bush clan) are no better than the Clinton Mafia.  Plunder, pillage, murder, graft, and an Imperial power grab - this is the new Mafia class in USA.  

Understanding the CIA and reporting it

The CIA is a clandestine organization and as such, they will never make any statements to verify any facts about them that are unpleasant for them (including most important facts that might the general public question their existence).  Remember that the CIA is funded with tax dollars so they work for US Citizens.  Any evidence of operations is destroyed, so it's very unlikely that anyone would ever find a document about their internal operations, with the exception of what they publicly release via their FOIA reading room.   What they release is obviously uninteresting and un-incriminating.  They even release humorous projects in order to send a message to the public's subconscious - we're the good guys and we do things.  One of the most kind and funny examples is the 1960's attempt to turn Kitties into spies.  Of course, when someone is confronted with some bad things, they have the subconscious association with kitties and spies.  How cute!

Legality - This is important.  All of what we are describing here, is legal (sort of).  For example, it's illegal for the CIA to operate domestically.  So officially, they don't.  Just like overseas, they use a web of shell companies and NGOs which serve as the 'front end' and these are called front companies. CNN's auditor isn't going to find "Central Intelligence Agency" in the books and records.  Some of these fronts are just shells but others are legitimate companies, owned and controlled by the Agency through InQTel, the Venture Capital arm.

So what we know about the CIA comes from leaks such as the famous Snowden leak, and many others via Wikileaks such as the Vault 7 release.  Another quality source is whistleblower testimony.  CIA whistleblowers are obviously discredited, harassed, and in many cases end up involved in strange deaths.  One whistleblower turned author wrote the classic bestseller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man - a must read to insights on how the CIA really operates.  What's compelling about this account in particular is the detailed descriptions of how it works.  According to the author the CIA is the agency tasked with building American Imperialism with the following method 1) First a group of economists are sent to emerging markets where they explain the only hope for growth are these exorbitant IMF loans (which they know they will never repay).  To entice them to accept they may 'pay' the leaders a bonus, such as $50 Million to you Swiss bank account.  2) If they don't accept the loans, then they send in the 'jackals' who basically try to overthrow the regime with force.  This has been acheived hundreds of times but doesn't always work.  When it doesn't, then we 3) Declare war, based on lies such as "Weapons of Mass Destruction" or any excuse or evidence that can be planted.

Problems with Logic

The majority of huddled masses and the majority of intelligentsia too, don't understand Logic & Rhetoric.  Knowing this, those spouting lies and creating deception very cleverly use tricks in order to obfuscate and mislead.  For example, in the beginning of the official Impeachment Hearing Report, a statement is made:

The Committees pursued the truth vigorously, but fairly,ensuring the full participation of both parties throughout the probe.

How can a committee who created a fake impeachment based on false and manufactured evidence against the defendant, make a statement like this?  Here's the issue - readers who are Democrats and anti-Trump will take it as axiomatic, or in other words, at face value.  Here's how the brain process works.  You read a statement, and you assume it to be true, because it justifies your existing bias (opinion) which in this case is "Orange Man Bad."  With a false premise, the conclusion is always true.  The schism between Democrats and Republicans is not political, it's intellectual.  It's similar to the difference between scholastic and stochastic, or the difference between religion and philosophy.  Stochastics are believers, Scholastics are students.  The difference is key to understanding what's going on in US politics.  Trump isn't a Republican.  In fact, he spent more money than Obama in his time as President by 13.5% (marginally more if you count for inflation - and the US Treasury is more profitable now).  He thrashed the EPA.  Where's the conservativism?  Trump is an anti-establishment candidate, not a Republican.  He's a capitalist with a Real Estate background with child-like understanding of markets - lower rates = asset inflation (stocks & real estate) = Happy People.  There are plenty of criticisms Democrats could make against Trump if they were intellectuals, if they were ethical, such as:
  • Trump's lack of monetary policy (bias towards lower rates and manipulating the Fed is not a monetary policy)
  • Destruction of the EPA causing harmful, toxic environmental consequences
  • Foreign Policy mishandling
There are others.  The point is to illustrate that Democrats and Trump's enemies chose an irrational and artificial "Witch Hunt" rather than a logical well organized campaign.  Their behavior is childish and alarming - the US has become similar to Soviet Russia in many ways:
  • Media (Press) 99% controlled by the Government
  • Open public debate is not allowed (Wikipedia being censored, for example)
  • "Party Members" support the party based on belief, as if infected by a virus - not by facts, or results that the party has achieved.  (this is the destabilizing component we need to be afraid of)
This article is about Wikipedia, the above example is used only as a means to explain the tools that are employed by the editors of Wikipedia.  It's not a stupid operation, after all it is called 'intelligence' - but it's not the kind you employ to take an IQ test.  Intelligence has a few basic agendas behind it:  protect the state, grow big business, and counterintelligence (which can be for a number of reasons).  Wikipedia is the 'fake source' just as CNN is 'fake news' as proven by fake stories they will publish without references as if they are true.  Wikipedia is the same.  Although they have 'rules' very often the SysOps do not follow their own rules.  If you call them out on not following their own rules, they will tell you that you are 'abusing them' and if you 'continue your abuse' you will be banned.  

Wikipedia was free and overrun by trolls

Going back to the source topic, Larry Sanger was a co-founder of Wikipedia but left early due to what he felt was the system being 'overrun by trolls' - 
Sanger grew disillusioned with Wikipedia.[27] He has argued that by mid-2001, the Wikipedia community was being "overrun" by what he described as "trolls" and "anarchist-types", who were "opposed to the idea that anyone should have any kind of authority that others do not".[28] 
What 'trolls' may he have been referring to?  Let's also be clear - the CIA isn't the only troll on Wikipedia, there are many.  Where there is big money involved, such as Pharmaceuticals, there are trolls.  Let's take a look at some of the findings of this author in a piece aptly titled "Wikipedia: Rotten to the core" -
In 2013, a British Petroleum representative was found to be supplying Wikipedia editors with company-approved text that eventually comprised 44% of BP’s page. The editing took place while a civil trial was underway which could have resulted in BP paying out billions of dollars to victims of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The process itself — PR flack supplies biased “info” to an unaffiliated editor, who then inserts it without disclosing its origins — is common on Wikipedia and does not actually violate the rules, as BP was quick to point out.⁷ Indeed, multiple editors jumped to the defense of the editor working for BP, suggesting they were also being paid or merely wanted to keep their options open.  Roger Bamkin, a trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation UK and a PR consultant, used his Wiki position to place his PR client, the country of Gibraltar, on Wikipedia’s “did you know” front page feature 17 times during August 2012. As a “Wikipedian in Residence,” Bamkin was not permitted to operate with a conflict of interest or to edit the pages of the organization he worked with, but nothing in the rules prevented him from promoting that page. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales called Bamkin’s behavior “wildly inappropriate” and denounced it in a double-speaking editorial. Basically, he told future emulators to be more circumspect in their behavior, because the “disaster for our reputation” would be immense if it got out that Wikipedia editors were “paid shills” instead of “free and independent scribes.”⁸ Wales understands the importance of one’s online reputation, which makes it even more unconscionable that his site has been weaponized to destroy the reputations of so many people.
BP lawyers noted correctly that there are ways to engage in biased editing that do not violate the rules.  In fact, the whole model of Wikipedia sort of invites trolls who are willing to spend the time, without being paid.  
Another interesting troll is Big Pharma, with obvious incentives to control information that's out there:
Big Pharma’s fingerprints are all over Wikipedia. Editors linked to AstraZeneca were caught posting negative material to competitors’ pages and adding promotional material to their own.³⁹ Wikiscanner caught Abbott Labs removing information from its entry about possible side effects of two of its most popular drugs, the weight loss pill Meridia and the arthritis pill Humira.⁴⁰ An analysis of the entry for Purdue Pharmaceuticals shows it has been through several editing cycles in which information on the addictive potential of the company’s infamous opiate Oxycontin was added, then removed, then added again, though any editors working for Purdue seem to have slunk away in the aftermath of their employer’s settlement with the state of Kentucky for $24 million in damages from widespread Oxycontin abuse in the state.⁴¹
Basically, Wikipedia is a legal time bomb waiting to explode.  It has sort of 'creeped' into culture in a manner so subtle you wouldn't know it, like the frog being boiled alive in the pot by slowly turning up the heat.
In another alarming article "Wikipedia is an Establishment PsyOp" they document the log of a 'volunteer' that has edited Wikipedia 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 5 years, deleting controversial / anti-Establishment content and replacing it with pro-war pro-Establishment content.  The name is "Philip Cross" -
Until recently I haven’t been closely following the controversy between Wikipedia and popular anti-imperialist activists like John Pilger, George Galloway, Craig Murray, Neil Clark, Media Lens, Tim Hayward and Piers Robinson. Wikipedia has always been biased in favor of mainstream CNN/CIA narratives, but until recently I hadn’t seen much evidence that this was due to anything other than the fact that Wikipedia is a crowdsourced project and most people believe establishment-friendly narratives. That all changed when I read this article by Craig Murray, which is primarily what I’m interested in directing people’s attention to here.  The article, and this one which prompted it by Five Filters, are definitely worth reading in their entirety, because their contents are jaw-dropping. In short there is an account which has been making edits to Wikipedia entries for many years called Philip Cross. In the last five years this account’s operator has not taken a single day off–no weekends, holidays, nothing–and according to their time log they work extremely long hours adhering to a very strict, clockwork schedule of edits throughout the day as an ostensibly unpaid volunteer.
Wikipedia is the authority - Facebook is the operation.  That means that since the invention of the 'internets' (Bush, 2002) they have been working hard to create a disinformation system so intelligent it is disguised as a 'free open sourced encyclopedia' that anyone can edit.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  Wikipedia is a tool of the Establishment to suppress free speech and defame political opponents.  It is a tool for big business to control information on controversial products, such as drugs that can have fatal side effects.   

The rise of Zero Hedge by the Right

Wikipedia is not a blog (their statement) - although the SysOps run it like one.  An encyclo-blog.  Zero Hedge is.  Zero Hedge is a mix of self-written content on topics including the markets, economics, politics, and trading.  Focus is on unconventional views and sources.  Zero Hedge is not and never will be a Russian asset as some would claim.  Zero Hedge is not political and is not a conservative outlet.  It's fact-based, if you read articles like this one you'll see that key sentences have links to references.  This style of writing by journalists, analysts, and other writers in the alt-media can only be described as fact-based reporting, or evidence based writing.  It's not about opinions it's about references and links to documents.  The conclusions are the opinions of the writer, however there is always a link to fact-based evidence.  The defamation against Zero Hedge is because it publishes things which the mainstream media doesn't like, especially since 2015 (when the entire media, including Fox, is anti-Trump).  So they call it a Russian troll site or right wing conspiracy site.  It's neither.  It is a fact-based site so they have to label it as a conspiracy site.  Truth is lies and lies are truth.  They have brainwashed people into believing that CNN is 'fair and balanced' and Zero Hedge publishes opinionated hit jobs.  In fact, CNN has a history of publishing fake news, and is the subject to a $400 Million defamation lawsuit (the complaint is a good read for anyone interested in how CNN/CIA Fake News operates).  When we tried posting this on CNN's Wikipedia page, and even the page about "CNN Controversies" they wouldn't allow it.  First reason is that was not a credible source.  So we used and they said it wasn't allowed because it's not controversy, it's just a competitor to CNN trying to get viewers.  Then we tried a 3rd time with as the source (which is biased and doesn't disclose material info about the case) and even that was declined, with no comment on deletion this time.
Zero Hedge is not the only fact-based site out there, there are many.  Here's a good list from a good site "Top 10 influential people in alt-media"
But here's the point.  Any site that posts facts that are contrary to the mainstream narrative filled with lies, that site needs to be discredited.  Defamation is much more powerful than assassination especially in the internet world.  BS "FactCheck" sites have been popping up like weeds in an abandoned shopping mall since 2015 and is out trolling factual information out there to deceive the gullible and unenlightened.  But going back to the thesis of this article, and friends by themselves are not credible, without Wikipedia.  Wikipedia is something that can change someone's opinion.  If it's in Wikipedia, it must be true.


2020 is the year free speech is dead. Without a free exchange of the truth of earth, all you will hear and know, WILL BE LIES. And as such, your life will then be built upon LIES.


Viktor Shokin: Biden outraged we seized Burisma assets

Elizabeth Warren Reveals Millions In Corporate Consulting Income

Pocahontas not only gets a free ride through University pretending to be an Indian, she already gets payola...while in school. Wow...these agency spooks are rolling in it. Money and shite, that is.

After months of dodging questions over her income, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) revealed on Sunday night that she made nearly $2 million from legal consulting for corporate clients while she was a law professor at Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania and other law schools, starting in 1995.

Fake and Gay...and CIA

The income included $212,000 for representing Travelers Indemnity Co. in 2009, $190,000 for representing a department store chain, and $80,000 doing bankruptcy work for Enron creditors.

The Washington Post immediately framed the disclosure as an example of hypocrisy, saying Warren's past income "doesn't fit neatly with her current presidential campaign brand as a crusader against corporate interests."
For instance, the documents released Sunday show that Warren made about $80,000 from work she did for creditors in the energy company Enron’s bankruptcy and $20,000 as a consultant for Dow Chemical, a company that was trying to limit the liability it faced from silicone breast implants that were made by a connected firm. -Washington Post
Warren's critics, such as Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, seized on the opportunity to suggest that "While she advocates for socialism she hypocritically lives a millionaire lifestyle."
All these reveals are coming out now so that fake Hillary can have a clear field when they run her in 2020. It's the only reason to expose their own operatives. Hillary 2.0 can't have dems appear squeaky clean, so their sordid, evil past is now coming to the surface. The idea being, to make that nasty skank appear somewhat more clean...which is totally impossible. No amount of burning down her democrat rivals will erase the stink of the Hildebeast 2.0

That's impossible.

George H. Walker Bush: The Bush family and the Mexican drug cartel

The devil behind crack cocaine, CIA man GHW Bush

Donald Trump has offered to intervene in Mexico, i.e. "to go after the Drug Cartels" following "the brutal killing of an American family in Mexico". The Mexican president has turned down Trump's generous offer.

In a recent interview, President Trump confirmed that his administration is now considering categorizing "drug cartels" as "terrorists", akin to Al Qaeda (with the exception that they are "Catholic terrorists").

They would henceforth be designated by Washington as "foreign terrorist organizations".

What is the intent?

Create a justification for US-led "counterterrorism" (military) operations inside Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America?

Extend the "War on Terrorism" to Latin America? "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P). Go after the "Narco-terrorists".
The unspoken truth is:

1. Al Qaeda and its related terrorist organizations (including ISIS) in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia are creations of the CIA.
2. The CIA protects the multibillion dollar global drug trade as well as the Mexican drug cartels. Moreover, it is estimated that 300 billion dollars (annually) worth of drug money is routinely laundered in casinos across America including Las Vegas and Atlantic City... As well as in Macau. Guess who is the World's richest casino owner.

3. Both American and Latin American politicians are known to have ties to the drug trade.
Flash back to the 1990s: George H. W. Bush, the dad of Bush Junior had developed close personal ties with Carlos Salinas de Gortari (former president of Mexico) and his dad Raul Salinas Lozano who, according to the Dallas Morning News (February 27, 1997) was "a leading figure in narcotics dealings that also involved his son, Raul Salinas de Gortari... And Raul was an intimo amigo of Jeb Bush, (former Governor of Florida) and the brother of George W, Bush.

Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush
The Bush family has ties to the Bin Laden Family as well as ties to the Salinas de Gortiari family. Is it relevant?

The following text was published in May 2015 under the title Jeb Bush, the Mexican Drug Cartel and "Free Trade". The Bush Family and Organized Crime. It also documents the signing of the North american Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) by a Mexican head state with links to the Drug Cartels.

Michel Chossudovsky, December 1, 2019


Jeb Bush is a presidential candidate. [was in 2015]

But Jeb is not only the brother of George W. and the son of George H. W. Bush.

Jeb Bush also had close personal ties to Raul Salinas de Gortari, brother of Mexico's former president Carlos Salinas de Gortari. In the 1990s, Raul the "drug kingpin", according to Switzerland's federal prosecutor Carla del Ponte, was one of the main figures of the Mexican Drug Cartel.
Raul Salinas de Gortari

Raul Salinas de Gortari
Jeb Bush - before becoming Governor of the Sunshine State - was a close friend of Raul Salinas de Gortiari:

"There has also been a great deal of speculation in Mexico about the exact nature of Raul Salinas' close friendship with former President George Bush's son, Jeb. It is well known here that for many years the two families spent vacations together — the Salinases at Jeb Bush's home in Miami, the Bushes at Raul's ranch, Las Mendocinas, under the volcano in Puebla.

There are many in Mexico who believe that the relationship became a back channel for delicate and crucial negotiations between the two governments, leading up to President Bush's sponsorship of NAFTA." (Prominent intellectual and former foreign Minister of Mexico Jorge G. Castañeda, The Los Angeles Times. and Houston Chronicle, 9 March 1995, emphasis added)

The personal relationship between the Bush and Salinas families was a matter of public record. Former President George H. W. Bush had developed close personal ties with Carlos Salinas and his father, Raul Salinas Lozano.

Raul Salinas Lozano

Raul Salinas Lozano
Raul Salinas Lozano was the family patriarch, father of Carlos and Raul Junior. According to the former private secretary to Raul Salinas Lozano (in as statement to US authorities):
"... Mr. Salinas Lozano was a leading figure in narcotics dealings that also involved his son, Raul Salinas de Gortari, his son-in-law, Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu, the No. 2 official in the governing Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, and other leading politicians, according to the documents. Mr. Ruiz Massieu was assassinated in 1994." (Dallas Morning News, 26 February 1997, emphasis added).
Former president George H. W. Bush and Raul Salinas Lozano were "intimo amigos".

According to former DEA official Michael Levine, the Mexican drug Cartel was a "family affair". Both Carlos and Raul were prominent members of the Cartel. And this was known to then US Attorney General Edward Meese in 1987 one year prior to Carlos Salinas' inauguration as the country's president.

When Carlos Salinas was inaugurated as President, the entire Mexican State apparatus became criminalised with key government positions occupied by members of the Cartel. The Minister of Commerce in charge of trade negotiations leading up to the signing of NAFTA was Raul Salinas Lozano, father of Raul Junior the Drug kingpin and of Carlos the president.

And it is precisely during this period that the Salinas government launched a sweeping privatisation program under advice from the IMF.

The privatisation program subsequently evolved into a multibillion dollar money laundering operation. Narco-dollars were channelled towards the acquisition of State property and public utilities.

Richard Barnet of the Institute for Policy Studies, testified to the US Congress (April 14, 1994) that
"billions of dollars in state assets have gone to supporters and cronies" (Dallas Morning News, 11 August 1994).
These included the sale of Telefonos de Mexico, valued at $ 3.9 billion and purchased by a Salinas crony for $ 400 million.(Ibid).

Raul Salinas was behind the privatisation programme. He was known as "El Señor 10 por Ciento" [Mr. 10 Percent] "for the slice of bid money he allegedly demanded in exchange for helping acquaintances acquire companies, concessions and contracts [under the IMF sponsored privatisation program]"(The News, InfoLatina, .Mexico, October 10, 1997).

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

Bush Nafta
Raul Salinas de Gortari is the brother of former president Carlos Salinas de Gortiari, who signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in December 1992 alongside US President George H. W. Bush and Canada's Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.

In a bitter irony, it was only after this historical event, that Carlos Salinas' family links to the drug trade through his brother Raul were revealed.

The George H. W. Bush Senior administration was fully aware of the links of the Salinas presidency to organized crime. Public opinion in the US and Canada was never informed so as not to jeopardize the signing of NAFTA:
"Other former officials say they were pressured to keep mum because Washington was obsessed with approving NAFTA".
"The intelligence on corruption, especially by drug traffickers, has always been there," said Phil Jordan, who headed DEA's Dallas office from 1984 to 1994. But "we were under instructions not to say anything negative about Mexico. It was a no-no since NAFTA was a hot political football." (Dallas Morning News, 26 February 1997)
In other words, at the time the NAFTA Agreement was signed, both Bush Senior and Mulroney were aware that one of the signatories of NAFTA, namely president Salinas de Gortiari had links to the Mexican Drug Cartel.

Salinas book
In 1995 in the wake of the scandal and the arrest of his brother Raul for murder, Carlos Salinas left Mexico to take up residence in Dublin. His alleged links to the Drug Cartel did not prevent him from being appointed to the Board of the Dow Jones Company on Wall Street, a position which he held until 1997:
Salinas, who left Mexico in March 1995 after his brother, Raul, was charged with masterminding the murder of a political opponent, has served on the company's board for two years. He was questioned last year in Dublin by a Mexican prosecutor investigating the murder in March 1994 of Luis Donaldo Colosio, who wanted to succeed Salinas as president. A Dow Jones spokesman last week denied that Salinas had been forced out of an election for the new board, which will take place at the company's annual meeting on April 16... Salinas, who negotiated Mexico's entry into the free trade agreement with the United States and Canada, was appointed to the board because of his international experience. He was unavailable for comment at his Dublin home last week." (Sunday Times, London, 30 March 1997).
Washington has consistently denied Carlos Salinas' involvement. "it was his brother Raul", Carlos Salinas "did not know", the American media continued to uphold Salinas as a model statesman, architect of free trade in the Americas and a friend of the Bush family.

In October 1998, The Swiss government confirmed that the brother of the former Mexican president had deposited some 100 million dollars in drug money in Swiss banks:
"They [Swiss authorities] are confiscating the money, which they believe was part of a much larger amount paid to Raul Salinas for helping Mexican and Colombian drugs cartels during his brother's six-year term ending in 1994. Mr Salinas' lawyers have maintained he was legally heading an investment fund for Mexican businessmen but the Swiss federal prosecutor, Carla del Ponte, described Salinas' business dealings as unsound, incomprehensible and contrary to customary business usage. (BBC Report)
Raúl Salinas de Gortari

Raúl Salinas de Gortari
A few months later in January 1999, after a four-year trial, Raúl Salinas de Gortari was convicted of ordering the murder of his brother-in-law, Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu:

"After [Carlos] Salinas left office in 1994, the Salinas family fell from grace in a swirl of drug-related corruption and crime scandals. Raúl was jailed and convicted on charges of money laundering and of masterminding the assassination of his brother-in-law; after spending 10 years in jail, Raúl was acquitted of both crimes. ...
With the scandal unraveling, Jeb's friendship with Raúl did not go unnoticed. Jeb has never denied his friendship with Raúl, who [now] keeps a low profile in Mexico.

Kristy Campbell, spokesperson for Bush, did not respond a request for comment. The Salinas family's demise caught the Bushes by surprise. "I have been very disappointed by the allegations about him and his family. I never had the slightest hint of information that President Salinas was anything but totally honest," Bush senior told me in the 1997 interview. (Dolia Estevez, Jeb Bush's Mexican Connections, Forbes, April 7, 2015, emphasis added)
"The Salinas family's demise caught the Bushes by surprise"? (Forbes, April 2015) The Bushes knew who they were all along.

Former DEA official Michael Levine confirmed that Carlos Salinas' role in the Mexican drug cartel was known to US officials.

US President George H. W. Bush was regularly briefed by officials from the Department of Justice, the CIA and the DEA.

Did Jeb Bush - who is now [2015] a candidate for the White House under a Republican ticket- know about Raul's links to the Drug Cartel?

Was the Bush family in any way complicit?

These are issues which must be addressed and debated by the American public across the land prior to the 2016 presidential primary elections.

According to Andres Openheimer writing in the Miami Herald (February 17 1997):
"witnesses say former Mexican president Carlos Salinas de Gortari, his imprisoned brother Raul and other members of country's ruling elite met with drug lord Juan Garcia Abrego at a Salinas family ranch; Jeb Bush admits he met with Raul Salinas several times but has never done any business with him."
US authorities waited until after Carlos Salinas finished his presidential term to arrest Mexican drug lord Juan Garcia Abrego, who was a close collaborator of the president's brother Raul. In turn, Raul Salinas was an "intimo amigo" of Jeb Bush :
Juan Garcia Abrego, a fugitive on the FBI's most-wanted list, was flown to Houston late Monday, following his arrest by Mexican police ... Garcia Abrego, the reputed head of Mexico's second most powerful drug cartel, had eluded authorities on both sides of the border for years. His arrest is an enormous victory for the U.S. and Mexican governments. CNN, January 16, 2015
But there is more than meets the eye: while the Bushes and the Salinas have longstanding ties, Wall Street was also involved in the laundering of drug money:
A U.S. official said the Justice Department has made significant advances in its money-laundering investigation against Raul Salinas de Gortari and has identified several people who can testify that the former first brother received protection money from a major narcotics cartel.
If the U.S. were to indict Mr. Salinas, it could have implications for a Justice Department investigation into possible money laundering by Citibank, where Mr. Salinas had some of his accounts. Citibank, a unit of Citicorp , has denied wrongdoing. (WSW, April 23, 2015)
The involvement of Citbank in the money laundering operation is documented by a Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs Report (US General Accounting Office "Private Banking: Raul Salinas, Citibank, and Alleged Money Laundering" Washington, 1998).

Office of special investigations memo
The End Game

Raul Salinas de Gortiari was set free in 2005. All charges were dropped.

The matter involving the Bushes and the Salinas has largely been forgotten.

Meanwhile, American political history has been rewritten...

Not to mention the 1992 "Free Trade" Agreement (NAFTA), which was signed by a head of State with links to organized crime. Does that make it an illegal agreement? The legitimacy of NAFTA has so far not been the object of a legal procedure of judicial inquiry.

An "illegal NAFTA" sets the stage for the TPP and TTIP "agreements" negotiated behind closed doors.

All is well in the American Republic.

At least until the forthcoming 2016 presidential elections.

Comment: Boy oh boy was (and probably still is) the Bush familiy into a lot of high level organized criminal shit:

The Murderous Police State is this bad now

Becoming aware of your surveillance lands you in jail and being fined $35,000 for telling a joke on stage

Canadian Comedian fined $35,000 for joke
A Canadian comedian must pay $35,000 to a disabled man he made fun of in some of his acts. For telling a joke on stage as part of his act.

If he told a nasty off color joke about Trump, he would have got his very own Netflix show.

A Quebec appeals court upheld the decision by the Quebec Human Rights Tribunal. It said Mike Ward exceeded the limits of free speech when he told jokes about a disabled man’s performance singing in front of the Pope.

Making fun of a disabled guy is obviously in poor taste, until you hear him sing. If that's what you call that cacophony of hideous noise.
But it’s a pretty dangerous precedent to set when the courts start telling us that offensive jokes exceed ‘limits’ of free speech.

State of Indiana Cops charge man with theft for removing tracking GPS from truck

Spying on someone they didn't like, a christian whom they were trying to frame for drug dealing, police got a warrant to secretly place a GPS tracker on the man’s car.
But the victim found and removed the tracker as anyone would, not knowing who put it there and what their intentions might be. Anyone tracking you on the secret is up to no good, regards you and your life. He was right to disable it. 

The victim was fortunate that someone saw the bad guys (police) tinkering around his car at 3 in the morning and told him about it. So many of us don't get that. I always find my door ajar, or my clock reset, or other evidence they changed out my surveillance kit of mic, gps, and transmitter. Over and over again.

They are actually very tiny things and usually, its under the hood and dash and connected to the car's electrical for permanent power. The above clunky device is from 20 years ago. Nowadays, it's about nano-electronics. And scanners cannot find them.

When the GPS stopped signaling his location, police checked the car and realized the tracker was missing. So they got a warrant to search the man’s home for the GPS.
They found it, and charged him with theft. But they never did end up charging him with dealing drugs.

The Indiana Supreme Court just heard the case. Now they’ll decide if it’s theft to remove a GPS from your own car. When police went to retrieve the device from Heuring’s vehicle, it was missing. Police obtained a search warrant for Heuring’s residence, alleging that there was probable cause to believe he had committed theft of the device. The Warrick Superior Court denied Heuring’s motion to suppress evidence recovered from the searches. On an interlocutory appeal, the Court of Appeals affirmed the denial of the motion to suppress. Heuring v. State, No. 19A-CR-140 (Ind. Ct. App. 2019), vacated. This Court has granted a petition to transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the case.

New Democrat Campaign "Ad"

Pearl Harbor attack

Pearl Harbor, target rich environment with ships packed 3 deep. To entice the Japanese to hit us.

I am very well aware we were tricked into WW2. I am also very much aware that JAPAN was slicing and dicing it's way through most of the Pacific, outright murdering entire indigenous populations left and right. What they did in China alone has never been completely revealed. But the entire communities in that country wiped out by Japanese invaders is in excess of 3.2 millions.

So, someone had to stop them. The very first casualties was my mother's uncle, John John, killed by an exploding bomb on the battleship California. He had good eyes.

But also, who enabled them to go on this rampage, doing and saying nothing for ten long years while the Japanese ran roughshod over most of the Pacific? Who made Pearl such a target rich environment, but conveniently moving the large aircraft carriers far out to sea the very week the attack set sail? And leaving thousands of sailors, their ships, and airfields in stand down mode and lax security so the Japos couldn't help but hit something.

Why did senior officers bury any reports of the Japanese in US waters in the two weeks leading up to the attack and in several cases, sending airmen and sailors off island to shut them up about seeing Jap ships and submarines while out on patrol?

Quite a few people have blood on their hands in this little affair. ONI assets made sure double agents were assured that no real defense of the island would take place, if Japan did what was wanted. So it did. This all came out in declas decades later.
Britain and the USA.

USS California, battleship my Great Uncle was on, John Martin. Killed in the attack.

Tesla Owners Wait In Half-Mile-Long Line To Charge Their Cars On Black Friday

 The shits and giggles part  about Tesla stations is fully 40% of them are run by DIESEL GENERATORS, WHICH EMIT 25 TIMES THE POLLUTION GASOLINE CARS DO. You never hear about that part. Running diesel, to power EV, to cut pollution of gas. You see the lie now. I've been telling you people for 15 years about this. And, the average EV car, with a full charge, has a range of 120 miles, tops. That's not very far, given where you might want to go, be, and do. And recharging takes anywhere from an hour to 3 hours. Just to go another 100 miles.

You cannot be that stupid to see how VERY BAD this all is. It's the rich, elite satanic left buying these and snobbing it up to people, not the average joe.

Dozens of Agenda 21 promoting satanists who have convinced the public that they are single-handedly saving the planet wound up spending an average of SIX HOURS of their Black Friday waiting on an extensive line to have their cars charged. NOT COUNTING CHARGING TIME. Many Teslas had to be towed away because their batteries drained dry. End of vacation. End of plans. and YOU ARE FUCKED.

Let that sink in. Really. You think about that. SELA.

Because that's the future of America if we ever go full EV. Cars with no range. No ability to charge en route. And stuck with NO POWER to get to a charger.

The Kettleman City Supercharger station, which boasts 40 charging stalls, was "overrun" on Black Friday, according to video and photos posted by the Daily Mail. These lines are being reported from ALL OVER THE WORLD, and not a single mention about it in the MSM. 

And why? Because once you see the future of this stupidity, you will never buy one of these low distance turd mobiles that self combust. That's why.

Shanon Stellini was traveling through the area on November 30 and found a backlog of "around 50" Teslas waiting to charge at the station which is off Interstate 5. Among dozens of other Tesla charge stations with lines 2 to 6 blocks long.

The scene has become more common at Superchargers around the U.S. "Bet they wish they had gas," Stellini's partner says in the video. 

The icing on the cake is the fact that when more cars are trying to recharge at once, it slows down the process of recharging for everybody else. 

It was unclear exactly how long drivers were forced to wait to have their cars fully charged, but one person Tweeted that they had been waiting on line for 40 minutes and was only "halfway" to the charger. 

There are now around 400,000 Teslas on the roads of the U.S. and the company's commitment to hoarding its cash by any means necessary, including not paying bills and not investing in its Supercharger network, could finally be coming back to bite its owners in pronounced fashion.

The day before Black Friday, another video was posted online showing 15 Teslas waiting at a Supercharger station in San Luis Obispo at about 4:45pm on the Thanksgiving holiday. Owners can reach a 100% charge in 175 minutes according to the article. 

The video shows a line of cars wrapped around the Madonna Inn, with many owners waiting outside their vehicles, waiting for their chance to charge their cars.

"Supercharger stations are conveniently located near desirable amenities like restaurants, shops and WiFi hotspots. Each station contains multiple Superchargers to get you back on the road quickly," Tesla says. WHICH IS A DAMNED LIE. If you are in a line, you have to stay with the car to keep moving it up. And as anyone who pays attention knows, Tesla and most EV charging stations are USUALLY PLACED IN THE WORST AND MOST DANGEROUS PARTS OF TOWN, where robberies, theft, murder, and rapes are HIGHEST.

This is all by design.

Hey Greta? Go F yourself and your satanic handlers. I saw that video of your mommy the witch, doing a ritual with her coven. Then youtube took it down, but I have it, you hate filled little lesbian.

From the Internet

This year I drove my Lexus from Palo Alto to Las Vegas for 7 hours with only 1 gas stop and 2 meal stops. Last year, same route same kick off time (11AM Wednesday), with Tesla 250mi cruising range, it took us 12 hours and we had waited at 3 Supercharging stops (Kettleman City, Mojave, and Baker, with meals on site). HUGE hassle there but it sure leaves much to be desired. Will never do EV long distance again.
What happens with PG&E and Edison decides to pull their plugs as they do now EVERY WEEK for the most bullshit of reasons? In Cali, power is now optional, like every other 3rd world shit hole.
(F)Elon Musk: inventor of the Tesla Portable Human BBQ'ing Machine. Now available with more powerfully exploding Lithium batteries for that extra charcoal taste!

You should come to Alabama. Super charger stations are things that don't exist. You charge at home or not at all unless you drive 100 miles to the big city. To get a 100 mile charge in our state takes 6 hours. SIX HOURS. To go a measly 100 miles. You people are fucking stupid for buying this garbage. Even then, once in the city, to go another 100 miles the charger takes 4 HOURS.

Toysla: 175 minutes + waiting time to get to the charger. (hahahahahaha fags)
Gas guzzling V8:  1 minute to fill up tank.
My friend in Berzerkely CA has a Tesla and has been trying to hook me up to the Tesla lifestyle. Here's his pitch..."my Tesla gets 300 MPC, it's clean, green, powerful, stylish. Battery charges in 2 hours if fully drained, at a super charger. Wow! Only two hours to charge up your car....yeah only two hours...if the charger is free to use. If it's not free...just go grab a cup of coffee and relax....relax? "
Relax? And how many of those super chargers are around? Never saw one.
So my current SUV has a 26 gallon tank...runs on regular....gets 535 MPT...takes less than 10 minutes to fill up. Fuel is available every 10 miles between stops. I drive across the country a couple of times a year. Some parts of the country you travel 400 miles between gas stations. I never see electric charging stations along the way. Not even at the gas stations or truck stops.
So I'm having a hard time excepting the idea of this green new the way which uses mostly coal, diesel or natural gas to power the generators that power up the Tesla's. 
This story quoted here just adds to my skepticism about drinking the koolaid.
And if your Tesla is in a wreck and totaled it's considered hazardous waste and the junk yard won't accept it.
Convince me this Tesla thing works.....if you can.  You shills make me sick.
Exactly right.  Fill your tank in 10 minutes, probably somewhere around a 30 MW (yes megawatt) power transfer.  And you can do it anywhere.  Tesla 60 kWh battery in 2 hours is 0.12 MW.  No thanks.  I love the energy density of liquid hydrocarbons.  And as you are probably aware, CO2 doesn't cause climate change. Liberals are literally brain dead retards.
 Running down their batteries waiting in line to charge their batteries...
