US Hand in Bolivia Coup

Only days before Evo Morales stepped down as Bolivia’s president audio tapes were published implicating opposition politicians, the US embassy and American senators in a coup plot. Among those US senators mentioned in the leaked tapes by the Bolivian politicians seeking Morales’ ouster were Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, according to a report by Telesur. It is believed that the US embassy in La Paz helped coordinate a deliberate campaign of street violence and media disinformation in order to destabilize the Andean country and force Morales to quit. The whole scenario fits Washington’s standard-operating procedure for instigating coups or regime change against … Continue reading

The Impeachment Pantomime

Now that “Russiagate” has failed and “Ukrainegate” neatly takes its place, many questions arise. Will the Democratic Party, this time in open collusion with the intelligence apparatus, succeed in its second attempt to depose President Donald Trump in what might fairly be called a bloodless coup? Whatever the outcome of the thus-far-farcical impeachment probe, which is to be conducted publicly as of Wednesday, did the president use his office to pressure Ukraine in behalf of his own personal and political interests? Did Trump, in his fateful telephone conversation last July 25 with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, put U.S. national security at risk, as is … Continue reading

The Anti-Cholesterol Statin Drug Charade Continues

The nation’s corps of elite medical news reporters isn’t touching this one.  It’s a commentary entitled “Systematic Review of The Predictors of Statin Drug Adherence For the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, published in PUBLIC LIBRARY OF SCIENCE (PLoS One), in January of 2019. Facing off seven manufacturers of statin drugs that sell billions of dollars of these cholesterol-lowering drugs, leading critics of the “statin drug parade” said this: Statin cholesterol-lowering “miracle” drugs only reduce risk for major adverse health events by less than 1% (0.7%), not the widely advertise 30%. Up to 75-90% of patients prescribed statin drugs stop … Continue reading

‘Scientific American’ Warns: 5G Is Unsafe

According to the telecom industry, 5G, the “5th Generation” wireless network, is required to give people the wireless freedom they crave and need. Described by HP as “blazingly fast,” 5G, which is 70 times faster than its predecessor, 4G, “will replace cable internet for good,” allowing you to download a two-hour high-definition movie in three seconds flat.1 5G is also being touted as necessary to enable the development and proliferation of self-driving cars and other future technologies. However, as noted in a May 2019 Forbes article,2 robocar designers are not, in fact, relying on 5G for their development, and the cars themselves … Continue reading

Stock Market Cheerleading: Why Do We Celebrate the Super-Rich Getting Richer?

It’s not too difficult to predict a political rebellion against the machinery of soaring wealth and income inequality. The one constant across the media-political spectrum is an unblinking focus on the stock market as a barometer of the national economy: every major media outlet from the New York Times to Fox News prominently displays stock market action, and TV news anchors’ expressions reflect the media’s emotional promotion of the market as the end all to be all: if stocks rose, the anchors are smiling and chirpy, and if the market fell then their expressions are downcast and dour. This cheerleading of … Continue reading

Thousands Gather To Mark the 33rd Anniversary of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act Government’s Gift to Big Pharma

Government’s gift to Pharma of liability-free vaccines puts children’s health at risk states Children’s Health Defense (CHD) Chairman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Washington, DC – Thousands of advocates for children’s health will gather Thursday at the Vaccine Injury Epidemic (VIE) Event on the National Mall to mark the 33rd anniversary of National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). The rally on Nov. 14th will spotlight the devastating impact NCVIA has had upon the state of children’s health. While children continue to be injured by vaccines daily, vaccine makers cannot be held accountable, thereby eliminating incentive for vaccine safety. In his remarks, RFK, Jr. will address the ramifications of … Continue reading

Trump Impeachment and the Civil War Scenario

There has been a lot of talk the past year about a civil war in the US, so much so that even the mainstream media is pushing the concept lately. A poll from Rasmussen in 2018 claimed that 31% of US voters believed that America would see a second civil war within the next five years. A more recent poll from The Institute Of Politics And Public Service shows that 7 out of 10 voters believe the US is two-thirds of the way towards civil war. New talk of “impeachment” over the Ukraine issue has stirred the soup even further as some conservatives argue … Continue reading

There Is No Such Thing as a Free Press

Udo Ulfkotte’s amazing book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalism) was published by Kopp Verlag in 2014. The book was a sensation and sold 1,500,000 copies in Germany, but no major US publisher would bring out an English translation. Finally, last month a small publisher, Progressive Press, published an English language edition titled Presstitutes Embedded in the Pay of the CIA. Ulfkotte’s book destroys the illusion/delusion that there is anywhere in the Western world an independent press. Ulfkotte describes in detail the cognitive appropriation of journalists by elites. Journalists serve as propagandists and public relations agents for intelligence agencies, businesses, lobbying organizations, politicians, and US … Continue reading

Is Ignorance of the Constitution Trump’s Defense?

Shop all books by Judge Napolitano “Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.” — Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994) As public hearings on impeachment begin this week, we will see the case for and the case against impeaching President Donald Trump. The facts are largely undisputed, but each side has its version of them. The Democrats will argue that in his July 25, 2019 telephone call with his Ukrainian counterpart, seen in the context of months of negotiations between American and Ukrainian diplomats, Trump made it known that if the Ukrainian government wanted the $391 … Continue reading

Epstein Cover-Up Is the Final Nail in the Coffin for Any Last Shred of Credibility in Mainstream Media

With ABC News’ Amy Robach now admitting on camera that her fake news network buried the Jeffrey Epstein story to protect the Clintons, we are witnessing the final nail in the coffin for any last shred of credibility in mainstream media. The media long ago abandoned any remaining pillar of journalism in their effort to accomplish two things: 1) Protect the Clintons at all costs. 2) Destroy Trump and his supporters at all costs. Those two things have driven the media’s entire narrative for at least the last five years (and probably longer). Now, thanks to a real whistleblower inside ABC News … Continue reading

Behind Transgenderism

It used to be said that the war between the generations was the only war where you eventually switched sides. This is no longer true. The modern craze of transgenderism means switching sides in the battle of the sexes. Transgenderism has been at the forefront of our sexual revolution since about 2013. The propaganda campaign to normalize transgenderism has both replaced and become an extension of the successful campaign to normalize homosexuality. The left was not satisfied with their cultural victory on homosexuality and “gay marriage.” With the institutional power to keep their sexual revolution ongoing, their mission creep took … Continue reading

The Great Conservative Crack-Up Over China

Gordon Chang is the author of a book titled The Coming Collapse of China. This likely explains why editorial pages and cable news shows frequently seek his thoughts on the country. Alarmism sells, and Chang brings it about China in spades. Evidence supporting the above claim comes care of an opinion piece Chang penned for the Wall Street Journal last week, which was titled “The Great Confrontation With China.” Chang is a bit dramatic when it comes to the country he’s convinced the “Trump administration is heading for a fundamental break with.” See above. His opinion piece brought new meaning to drama, including … Continue reading

Washington Has Disassociated America From Good and Deprived Her of Moral Basis

Not long ago I read that a US Assistant Secretary of State, or perhaps it was a member of the National Security Council, said that now that Washington had reestablished control over Ecuador, it would not be long before the governments of Bolivia, Venezuela, and Cuba would be overthrown. Venezuela is proving to be hard for Washington to crack. Washington was banking on its NGO forces paid to stage protests, together with monetary bribes to the Venezuelan military, to chase Maduro out of office. But so far the Venezuelan military has refused to desert their country for Washington. Washington can, … Continue reading

If Impeachment Fails, Will the Elite Crash the Economy in Order To Prevent Four More Years of Trump?

By now, it is exceedingly obvious that the global elite absolutely hate Donald Trump.  No president in U.S. history has faced such a relentless assault by the corporate media, and there have been attempts to sabotage his presidency at every turn.  Miraculously, Trump has survived all of these attacks so far, but now the specter of impeachment looms large over his administration.  The Democrats have a solid majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, they are working quickly toward drafting articles of impeachment, and they actually hope to have Trump impeached by Christmas Day.  But in order to have Trump … Continue reading
