Clinton Donors Charged in Massive Campaign-Finance Scheme

Eight people, including major Hillary Clinton donors and a witness in the Mueller investigation, have been charged in a massive campaign-finance scheme, the Justice Department announced on Tuesday.

The individuals conspired to “make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions” valued around $3.5 million in the 2016 election campaign and beyond, according to the announcement. Although the indictment does not explicitly name the recipient of the donations, it is clear that the contributions went to groups allied with Clinton’s presidential campaign.

One of those charged, George Nader, is a Lebanese American businessman who was a witness in the Mueller report. Nader was also caught in 2018 in possession of child pornography but received partial immunity in exchange for testimony in the Mueller investigation. He faces between 15 to 40 years in prison if convicted on child-pornography charges.

Also indicted on campaign-finance charges was Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, who hosted a fundraiser for Clinton in Los Angeles in 2016 and who conspired to conceal campaign donations from 2016 to 2018. Khawaja owns an online-payments company used by, among others, debt collectors, offshore gamblers, and pornographers. The company has made numerous campaign donations to both Democrats and Republicans.

Nader also gained access to the Trump administration, meeting with the president on several occasions. Nader has experience in international diplomacy, has served as a diplomatic conduit to the Middle East and Russia, and was an informal adviser to the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates.

Unreported History of Clinton Campaign Fraud: 2016

Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016 was stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they made what was supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, according to multiple sources.

The overcharges were occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks received up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who was a victim of this fraud scheme, filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.

“We got up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department stated. The source claimed that the Clinton campaign had been pulling this stunt since the Spring of 2016. The Hillary for America campaign overcharged small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically didn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.

“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we didn’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they stop the charges just below $100. We saw her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who worked for Wells Fargo for over ten years, said that the total amount they refunded customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varied” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1,200 per day.

The fraud specialist said that Clinton donors who called in attempted to resolve the issue with the campaign first but they never got anywhere. “They called the Clinton campaign to get their refund and the issue never got resolved. So they called us, and we just issued a refund. The Clinton campaign knew these charges were small potatoes and that we’d just refund the money back.”

The source said that pornography companies often deploy a similar arrangement pull. “We see this same scheme with a lot of seedy porn companies,” the source said. The source also notes that the dozens of phone calls his department receives daily are from people who notice the fraudulent charges on their statements. “The people who call us are just the ones who catch the fraudulent charges. I can’t imagine how many more people were overcharged by Hillary’s campaign, and they had no idea.”

Carol Mahre, an 81-year-old grandmother of seven from Minnesota, was one of the victims of Clinton’s campaign donor fraud scandal. In March of 2016, Mahre said she made a one-time $25 donation via Clinton’s official campaign website. However, when she received her U.S. Bank card statement, she noticed multiple $25 charges were made. Mahre, who said in an interview she only contributed $25 because she’s “not rich” and that’s all she could afford, contacted her son, Roger Mahre, to help her dispute the unauthorized charges.

Roger, who is an attorney, stated that he called the Clinton campaign dozens of times in April and early May of 2016 in an attempt to resolve the issue. “It took me at least 40 to 50 phone calls to the campaign office before I finally got ahold of someone,” Roger said. “After I got a campaign worker on the phone, she said they would stop making the charges.”

Incredibly, the very next day, Carol’s card was charged yet again, and the campaign had never reversed the initial fraudulent charges. “I was told they would stop charging my mother’s card, but they never stopped.” He added that he knows his mother did not sign up for recurring payments. “She’s very good with the internet, so I know she only made a one-time payment.” Roger also pointed out that even if his mother mistakenly signed up for recurring monthly payments then she should’ve been charged for the same amount of money each month, not multiple charges for varying amounts on the same day or in the same month. Furthermore, Roger said that after the campaign was made aware of this situation, the charges should’ve stopped, but they never did.

The Clinton campaign overcharged Carol $25 three times and then overcharged her one time for $19, a total of $94 in fraudulent charges. The campaign’s overcharges to Carol were just a few dollars short of $100. This paralleled what the Wells Fargo bank source revealed.

Since the campaign failed to amend the problem for Carol, Roger contacted her bank, U.S. Bank. However, he ran into problems when he asked U.S. Bank to refund his mother’s money. Roger stated that the bank would not reverse the charges and that a bank spokesperson told him that they had no control over companies that make unauthorized charges. At that point, Roger decided to contact his local news and filed a fraud complaint with Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson’s office on behalf of his mother. After local TV news KARE-11 ran a story, someone from U.S. Bank contacted Roger the next day and said that they had reversed and stopped the charges to his mother’s card.

Roger did eventually get a letter from a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign. In the letter, the lawyer wrote that his mother would be removed from their donor list; however, the campaign did not take any responsibility for the fraudulent charges.

“They said that they weren’t accepting responsibility for this, but they’d remove my mom from the donor list,” he said. Roger is less than happy with the way the Clinton campaign handled this nightmare for him and his mother. “This is a load of crap!” Mahre said. “The self-righteousness of politicians drives me insane. If you and I did this, we’d be thrown in jail. This is theft, fraud or wire fraud—it’s a federal crime!”

When Carol’s story became public, Roger said he heard from other people who were ripped off by the Clinton campaign. “I’ve heard this happened to other small donors,” Roger said. “People donated $25, but then when they received their credit card statement, they were charged $25 multiple times.”

The Wells Fargo Bank source said he’s apolitical but noted that the bank’s fraud department never received one call from a Donald Trump supporter claiming to have been overcharged by Trump’s campaign. “I’m only talking to you because what Hillary did is so messed up, she stole from her poorest supporters.”

Nothing New

The New York Times reported in 2007 that Clinton’s first presidential campaign had to refund and subtract hundreds of thousands of dollars from its first-quarter total often because donors’ credit cards were charged twice. Additionally, Clinton had to refund a stunning $2.8 million in donations, three times more than the $900K President Barack Obama’s campaign repaid.

A Clinton campaign worker named Kathy Callahan, who worked on Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008, claimed in a blog post that Clinton fraudulently overcharged her by several thousand dollars. She wrote that she voluntarily left the campaign’s finance committee after she discovered $3,000 in unauthorized charges made by Clinton’s campaign to her Visa card. Callahan said the unauthorized charges caused $400 in overdraft and bank charges and put Callahan over the legal donor limit. Callahan said that after a month of “begging and pleading,” she wasn’t able to get her money back until she threatened to go to authorities. However, when she was finally refunded her money, the Clinton campaign refused to compensate her for the $400 in overdraft and bank charges.

Summary

Do we need even to discuss the obvious here? Consider this:

  • Since the Clintons both entered politics — first in Arkansas, then in Washington and New York — rumors of financial corruption have followed right along with them. Few Americans care to pay the price and invest the time and energy to investigate their financial wrongdoings. Quite honestly, there are quite a few  “wounded” Americans in their political wake! (“Wounded” here is an oxymoron!) You can even look outside the U.S. to Clinton Foundation issues. In Haiti, after the horrific earthquake, millions of dollars that flowed through the Clinton Foundation for aid to Haiti vanished. And financial nepotism put millions more in the pockets of Clinton cronies. Why should this latest DOJ report of Clinton Campaign fraud be surprising?
  • Why do we not hear anything about any of this until after the fact? It seems that either the American Media is oblivious to the “news” that Clintons’ financial wrongdoing has been rampant or that the “Lame-Stream Media” simply do not care. No matter if it’s because of one or both, their doing so is a travesty.

I’ll close with this undeniable thought — my conclusion: Can you imagine how the heads of U.S. Media pundits would be exploding if Donald Trump was implicated in any such matters?

Oh, and then there’s this: what would be happening if the Clintons were back in the White House?

House Republicans Fight Back

Wednesday, December 4, America heard from four Constitutional “experts” about their opinions of impeachment, its foundation, its purposes, its past uses, and how the Constitutional guidelines determine its appropriate uses. At the end of it all, we are no closer to firm and final answers about impeachment as it applies to what is happening in Washington today than we did six months ago. Democrats are on a quest and continually exist in “Dump-Trump” mode. Republicans are on a quest, too. Theirs is “Let’s get about conducting legislative business for the American people.”

Do you notice any similarities in thought between Dems and the GOP? Neither do I. But, as promised, we at TruthNewsNetwork are committed to bringing you the facts that we can discern through research of every applicable D.C. matter that impacts Americans. That promise applies to members and issues of both parties, issues that arise daily in Congress, the White House, and the Judiciary, and every applicable matter in U.S. foreign relations that impact our nation. Here’s our analysis of “Impeach Trump, Part III.”

“Where’s the Beef?”

Democrats have not veered away from their one unified cry about Mr. Trump since even before he won the 2016 election: “We don’t like him. We think he’s unfit to serve as President. We will do anything and everything we can do to drive him out of the White House and even from Washington, D.C.” The only things that have changed in the three years of Mr. Trump’s first term as President are the bullets in the Democrats’ “Dump-Trump” gun they have used. They are Trump Campaign Russian Collusion, the Mueller Investigation, Obstruction of Justice, Emoluments Clause violations, and now we find ourselves in “Ukraine-Gate Part III.” Who’s universally in all of these? Rep. Adams Schiff (D-CA), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Of course, the President is universal in all of this. If he’d go away, so would the faux impeachment!

House Republicans on Monday, December 2, released a report of evidence in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, in which they affirmed none of the Democrats’ witnesses have proof of President Donald Trump’s involvement in bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor.

And by working to impeach President Trump since his election, 231 House Democrats are trying to undo the will of nearly 63 million American people who chose him as the 45th president of the United States.

The following are the key findings from the report presented by House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul (R-Texas).

  • President Trump has a deep-seated, genuine, and reasonable skepticism of Ukraine due to its history of pervasive corruption.
  • President Trump has a long-held skepticism of U.S. foreign assistance and believes that Europe should pay its fair share for mutual defense.
  • President Trump’s concerns about Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma Holdings’ board are valid. The Obama State Department noted concerns about Hunter Biden’s relationship with Burisma in 2015 and 2016.
  • There is indisputable evidence that senior Ukrainian government officials opposed President Trump in 2016 and did so publicly. It has been reported that a Democratic National Committee (DNC) operative worked with Ukrainian officials, including the Ukrainian Embassy, to dig up dirt on then-candidate Trump.
  • The evidence does not establish that President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Burisma Holdings, Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Ukrainian influence in the 2016 election to benefit him in the 2020 election.
  • The evidence does not establish that President Trump withheld a meeting with President Zelenskiy to pressure Ukraine to investigate Burisma, Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Ukrainian influence in the 2016 election.
  • The evidence does not support that President Trump withheld U.S. security assistance to Ukraine to pressure Ukraine to investigate Burisma, Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Ukrainian influence in the 2016 election.
  • The evidence does not support that President Trump orchestrated a shadow foreign policy apparatus to pressure Ukraine to investigate Burisma, Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Ukrainian influence in the 2016 election.
  • The evidence does not support that President Trump covered up the substance of his telephone conversation with President Zelenskiy by restricting access to the call summary.
  • President Trump’s assertion of longstanding claims of executive privilege is a legitimate response to an unfair, abusive, and partisan process, and does not constitute obstruction of a legitimate impeachment inquiry.

In summary, House Republicans said the evidence in the Democrats’ probe does not prove their allegations that President Trump abused his authority to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, a potential political rival, for his benefit in the 2020 election. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy again affirmed he did not discuss with President Donald Trump about a “quid pro quo” involving the withholding of military aid to Ukraine from the United States, which is at the center of the House impeachment inquiry against the president.

In an interview with Time.com published on Monday, Dec. 2, Zelenskiy said, “I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing. Zelenskiy was answering the question, “When did you first sense that there was a connection between Trump’s decision to block military aid to Ukraine this summer and the two investigations for which Trump and his allies were asking? Can you clarify this issue of the quid pro quo?”

“I don’t want us to look like beggars,” he continued. “But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying,” he added.

This is not the first time Zelenskiy denied the accusation of wrongdoing regarding a phone call between him and President Trump. In October, the Ukrainian president also affirmed: “there was no blackmail” in their July phone call, and there were no “conditions” from the American side.

Summary

Yep: this is brief today. Why is it so short? There’s not much to discuss!

What we could do is spend a bunch of your time going back over all the “what-if’s” and “if-only’s.” But we’d still be here next month and probably next year trying to ascertain what this Democrat charade is going to morph into. Until we arrive at the end of all that, we are no longer going to “speculate.” We’ll just let the actions of the Left tell us what they are going to do.

Yes, it appears that House Democrats are going to send to the Floor Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. Probably, the vote on at least several of the likeliest Articles will be approved. And then the Senate will examine whatever Articles of Impeachment make the trip across the Hall.

If that happens, the fun will begin!

Don’t get me wrong: there’s nothing that can be funny about all of this. But know this for sure: if a Senate impeachment trial actually occurs, every bit of the dirty laundry from the past four to six years will be brought before the American public through witness and document subpoenas. And it all will be exposed every day INTERNATIONALLY!

Just imagine that witness list: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strozk, Peter Steele, James Clapper, John Brennan, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Samantha Power, Susan Rice, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, etc.

Don’t forget about three witnesses that will undoubtedly appear before the Senate: former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and even former President Barack Obama.

Do Democrats want all of the wrongdoing on the part of their minions in the Deep State to appear daily for the next year on national television? Do they want to take the chance that members of their own “crew” will face indictment(s), millions of dollars in legal defense costs, public embarrassment and humiliation, and the destruction of their personal and professional lives, all in an attempt to rid D.C. of President Trump?

“Hey Nancy: Tag, You’re It!”

Naziism Is Alive in America: And It Has No Color

You probably have not heard of Malcolm Nance. You need to know who he is. You need to know what he’s about. You need to know what he represents.

We’ll get into the specifics of his background in a bit, but what is most important is that he is a radical leftist cloaked in his claims of his patriotism, his belief and “undying support” to the Constitution and that President Trump has ushered a criminal enterprise into the White House.

There’s much we will share with you today and later about Mr. Nance. Why? It’s essential you know just how deep the Deep State is. You need to know how far left some in the Deep State are. You need to know and understand why the likes of those in ANTIFA and other radical left groups somehow find justification for actually attacking the Constitution and what it stands for while they declare they are doing so to PROTECT the Constitution.

Meet Malcolm Nance:

You have now seen and heard Malcolm Nance. He owns a pretty significant pedigree in National Security. And as you just witnessed, he fashions himself to be a Constitutional scholar, a political ethicist, and a narcissist who makes the claims by some of Trump’s alleged narcissism appear laughable. Malcolm Nance is scary. Why?

He has a pulpit — a big one. MSNBC has given it to him. Just knowing that NBC and its political arm are all-in with the Nance message isn’t unusual. But what IS surprising is that NBC’s doing so legitimizes the beliefs of many that Nance makes sense. If what he said in that short interview segment you just witnessed does not awaken you to the “Malcolm Nance reality,” you need to rethink it. Nance is not alone in his thoughts and beliefs. And the results of his messaging could easily loose the dragon of violence in the U.S. — that is really isn’t already walking among us.

Read/listen on.

White supremacist “foot soldiers” perceive President Donald Trump’s rhetoric as “subliminal orders in their head,” warns MSNBC’s national security analyst Malcolm Nance.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Hardball during a segment on the massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Nance claimed mass shootings in the United States are fueled by far-right, white supremacist ideology by shooters who want to eliminate liberalism.

”I think that we’re finally in for a significant societal change where we’re finally addressing this issue. I wrote a book last year called The Plot to Destroy Democracy, and in one of the chapters, I led off with the massacre of 68 children in Norway by the original white supremacist terrorist who created the concept of this terrorist manifesto — Anders Behring Breivik,” he said. “And he did that because he thought “The Great Replacement” was underway in Norway and that the government was allowing unbridled immigration into that country.”

So in his trial, he said he massacred those children because he wanted to eliminate the next generation of liberal leadership from Norway as a warning,” he continued. “This country has had several of these mass incidents, but I think we’re overdue for a Breivik-style real massacre of a political nature.”

Trump is fostering a culture that facilitates white supremacist terrorists, Nance argued.

“These people feel that they are the foot soldiers and executors of what the disenfranchisement that the white race is feeling, and Donald Trump is giving them subliminal orders in their heads,” he said. “They are no different than the mobilized, self-starting, self-radicalized terrorists of ISIS here in the United States and Europe, who take cars and drive down streets. It’s just that they have a permissive environment in which they can get firearms and go out and attack their perceived enemies.”

While Nance, in conjunction with many Democrat lawmakers and the Lame-stream media establishment, insist Trump’s “racist” rhetoric inspired the mentally ill mass shooters, an abundance of evidence, first reported by conservative media outlets, irrefutably verifies they were leftists – not Trump supporters.

Nance appeared in May of 2019 on AM Joy on MSNBC. Here’s a sample of Nance’s opinions about President Trump and those in his administration:

MALCOLM NANCE: This administration is completely and wholly a corrupt criminal enterprise now. You have the Attorney General of the United States acting as a hit man for the President of the United States, not looking out for the interests of the people of the United States, and laws now no longer matter. I’ve dedicated every second of my life to defend this nation. I love and believe in the Constitution of the United States. My country is now under attack by the President of the United States. Who will stand for it? Who in our own Congress is wanting to negotiate with him, right? Their last bit of power is now going to come under 18 months of crushing pressure from a man that is all but in name a dictator. And I would like to hear how we’re going to handle this problem.

You know, I come on here and I try to be nice and calm when I come in, and then I listen to all this analysis and it just brings out the inner patriot in me, and it should in everyone in this country. We have got to stand for our Constitution, we’ve got to stand for our laws, and to say we’re going to negotiate it out, we’re going to create a nice paper trail, that is not fighting for this country. That is not fighting for what we believe, that is not fighting to defend this nation.

So, I think, all these people that write me every day. They need to just blow up the telephone lines on Monday. They need blow up the Twitter, and they need to hold Democrats accountable. Not the Republicans, hold the Democrats accountable, and say, this nation and our laws, you will now stand and defend. Because if you don’t them, we may not have them in 18 months. This White House now feels it can do anything. Robert Mueller has now given him permission to believe that he is untouchable. And he is not the Eliot Ness that we all wanted. And if this Congressman comes in here and says okay, we’re going to have this discussion, then that’s what you’re gonna have: you’re going to have a harshly-worded letter in a machine-gun fight.

Summary

It’s hard for me to believe there are people who are considered “experts” who espouse such wild and crazy ideas. It’s harder to think that someone like Nance has credibility and credentials sufficient to command a seat on the most significant media stage in world media: New York. It’s mind-boggling to me that Malcolm Nance has tens of thousands of Americans who believe these same things he spouts! But they do. And they live among us.

What’s the fuel for all this? If you stop and look at the world around us today, there is no realistic way to equate what this totalitarian ex-military expert claims about the United States and this government with what is playing out in the lives of Americans every day. It just cannot be reconciled.

For what Nance claims in today’s story to be true even in a small part, tens of millions of Americans must be living in a fog of unseen dementia or are too uninformed or mentally incapable of reason. Most of us live in a world in which we rely on circumstances of life and how they directly impact us: our families, our homes and neighborhoods, our cities in which we live and work, and the extended environment in which we live and function daily.

I suggest that you do an internet search to view exactly what his pedigree is. It’s lengthy. He’s lived and worked in an intelligence and military environment for many years. On the surface, he strikes me as something of a James Bond or at least a Bond wannabe.

I don’t know Malcolm Nance; I just know “about him.” He sounds amazingly intelligent. He speaks clearly and certainly believes what he says. But what scares me is that so did Adolph Hitler!

The United States is undoubtedly the melting pot of those from 100+ nations on Earth. That means it’s the melting pot of those with numerous political and social perspectives. Expressing those through a couple of centuries has resulted in a great part in creating the greatness of our nation. But such creation has been based on respect for the differences of others — differences of all kinds. The success of where we realistically find ourselves today is rooted in those first ten Constitutional amendments that detail the elements of life that “we the people” did NOT relegate to the government but retained for ourselves. It’s those ten that will keep us safe from despots of every kind who attack those with different ideas.

But facts are required for any lasting positive results in a country. Let’s face it: ours is pretty good. No doubt there’s a large amount of tweaking necessarily going on. That’s a good thing. I don’t want to take the streets to start blowing up things and people just because I might disagree with them. It seems like doing so might be a pretty good alternative for Malcolm Nance.

“Accuser-In-Chief:” Jerrold Nadler

Wednesday of this week, December 4, 2019, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) who Chairs the House Judiciary Committee has another committee hearing regarding President Trump’s impeachment. Supposedly this hearing is to question Constitutional “experts” on what is and what is not an impeachable offense based on their opinions regarding impeachment wording in the Constitution. (Again, please note the word “opinions.”)

Nadler as nothing more than a soundbyte offered President Trump the opportunity to “participate” in these hearings. The offer is nothing but a sham: as of this moment, Democrats witnesses haven’t even been named. How could anyone prepare for a hearing without even knowing who will participate?

With this third step of the “Impeachment Inquiry” pending, why don’t we look back to 1998 when then-Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) gave an impassionate and scathing speech on the floor of the House of Representative demeaning Republicans for even initiating impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton. It is almost comical to see the obvious hypocrisy among today’s Democrats in Congress and those from 1998 regarding their justifications of what “was” right to do at the time compared to now, and what was “wrong” to do in 1998 compared to today. It’s obvious that political expedience is all that mattered then as it does today.

I’ll read Mr. Nadler’s Congressional speech. We searched diligently in an effort to find an original recording but could not. His verbatim speech text is available for your download at the end of today’s story. In full disclosure, for the sake of your time and the length of his speech, my verbal rendition has been edited for time only — not for context. We have highlighted some of Mr. Nadler’s most salient points, putting those in italics. We’ll spend a few minutes in Summary after the speech.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) December 18, 1998

Mr. Speaker, the precedents show and the Nation’s leading scholars and historians overwhelmingly agree that impeachment is reserved under the Constitution only for abuses of presidential power that undermine the structure of functioning of the government or of constitutional liberty. It is not intended as a punishment for crimes but as a protection against the President who would abuse his powers to make himself a tyrant. That is why Benjamin Franklin called impeachment a substitute for assassination. We are told that perjury is as serious an offense as bribery, a per se impeachable offense, but bribery goes to the heart of the President’s conduct of his constitutional duties. It converts his loyalties and efforts from promoting the welfare of the Republic to promoting some other interest.

Perjury is a serious crime and, if provable, should be prosecuted in a court of law. But it may or may not involve the President’s duties and performance in office. Perjury on a private matter, perjury regarding sex, is not a great and dangerous offense against the Nation. It is not an abuse of uniquely presidential power. It does not threaten our form of government. It is not an impeachable offense.

The effect of impeachment is to overturn the popular will of the voters. We must not overturn an election and remove a President from office except to defend our system of government or our constitutional liberties against a dire threat, and we must not do so without an overwhelming consensus of the American people. There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by another. Such an impeachment will produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions.

The American people have heard the allegations against the President, and they overwhelmingly oppose impeaching him. They elected President Clinton, they still support him. We have no right to overturn the considered judgment of the American people.
Mr. Speaker, the case against the President has not been made. There is far from sufficient evidence to support the allegations, and the allegations, even if proven true, do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses. This is clearly a partisan railroad job. The American people are watching, and they will not forget.

I believe that we need to get back to basics — the Constitution and what the impeachment power conferred on the Congress requires of us. Article II, section 4 of the Constitution says that a President ‘‘shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’’ We have received testimony from some of the nation’s leading legal scholars and historians who agree that impeachable offenses are those which are abuses of Presidential power that undermine the structure or functioning of government, or constitutional liberty.

History and the precedents alike show that impeachment is not a punishment for crimes, but a means to protect the constitutional system, and it was certainly not meant to be a means to punish a President for personal wrongdoing not related to his office. Some of our Republican colleagues have made much of the fact that some of the Democrats on this Committee in 1974 voted in favor of an article of impeachment relating to President Nixon’s alleged perjury on his tax returns, but the plain fact is that a bipartisan vote of that Committee — something we have not yet had in this process on any substantive question — rejected that article. That’s the historical record, and it was largely based on the belief that an impeachable offense must be an abuse of Presidential power, a ‘‘great and dangerous offense against the Nation,’’ not perjury on a private matter.

We are told that perjury is as serious an offense as bribery, a per se impeachable offense. But bribery goes to the heart of the President’s conduct of his constitutional duties — it converts his loyalties and efforts from promoting the welfare of the Republic to promoting some other interest. Perjury is a serious crime — and, if provable, should be prosecuted in a court of law. But it may, or may not, involve the President’s duties and performance in office. Perjury on a private matter — perjury regarding sex — is not a ‘‘great and dangerous offense against the Nation.’’ It is not an abuse of uniquely Presidential power. It does not threaten our form of government. It is not an impeachable offense.

There are clearly some members of the Republican majority who have never accepted the results of the 1992 or 1996 elections, and who apparently have chosen to ignore the message of last month’s election, but in a democracy, it is the people who rule, not political elites — and not members of political elites who were repudiated at the last election. Some members of the House may think the people have chosen badly, but it is the people’s choice and we must respect it absent a threat to our democracy that would justify overturning the repeated expression of their will at the ballot box. Members of Congress have no right to arrogate to themselves the power to nullify an election absent that compelling case.

The Judiciary Committee also received testimony from some outstanding former prosecutors, including the former Republican Governor of Massachusetts, William Weld, who headed up the Criminal Division of Ronald Reagan’s Justice Department, who compellingly explained why all the loose talk about perjury and obstruction of justice would not hold up in a real prosecutor’s office — that the evidence we have been given would never support a criminal prosecution in a real court of law.

For those who demand that the President prove his innocence, without his accusers having to prove his guilt or even to state clearly the charges, the Judiciary Committee received answers from the President’s Counsel in which they meticulously pointed out how the charges were not supported and were indeed contradicted, by the evidence Mr. Starr’s own office had assembled. In fact, Mr. Starr has stated in his referral to Congress, that his own ‘‘star witness’’ is not credible, except when her uncorroborated testimony conflicts with the President’s, and then it proves his perjury.

We have received sanctimonious lectures from the other side about the ‘’rule of law,’’ but the law does not permit perjury to be proved by the uncorroborated testimony of one witness. Nor does the law recognize as corroboration the fact that the witness made the same statement to several different people. You may choose to believe that the President was disingenuous, that he was not particularly helpful to Paula Jones’ lawyers when they asked him intentionally vague questions, or that he is a bum, but that does not make him guilty of perjury.

This House is not a grand jury. To impeach the President would subject the country to the trauma of a trial in the Senate. It would paralyze the government for many months. We cannot simply punt the duty to judge the facts to the Senate if we find mere ‘‘probable cause’’ that an impeachable offense may have been committed. To do so would be a derogation of our constitutional duty. The proponents of impeachment have provided no direct evidence of impeachable offenses. They rely solely on the findings of an ‘‘independent’’ counsel who has repeatedly mischaracterized evidence, failed to include exculpatory evidence, and consistently misstated the law.

We have been entrusted with this grave and dangerous duty by the American people, by the Constitution and by history. We must exercise that duty responsibly. At a bare minimum, that means the President’s accusers must go beyond hearsay and innuendo, and beyond demands that the President prove his innocence of vague and changing charges. They must provide clear and convincing evidence of specific impeachable conduct. This they have failed to do.

Some say that if we do not impeach the President, we treat him as if he is above the law. Is the President above the law? Certainly not. He is subject to the criminal law — to indictment and prosecution when he leaves office like any other citizen, whether or not he is impeached. And if the Republican leadership allows a vote, he would likely be the third President in U.S. history, and the first since 1848, to be censured by Congress. But impeachment is intended as a remedy to protect the nation, not as a punishment for a President.

The case is not there — there is far from sufficient evidence to support the allegations, and the allegations, even if proven, do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses. We should not dignify these articles of impeachment by sending them to the Senate. To do so would be an affront to the Constitution and would consign this House to the condemnation of history for generations to come. The American people are watching, and they won’t forget. You may have the votes, you may have the muscle, but you lack the legitimacy of a national consensus and the Constitution. This partisan coup d’etat will go down in the history of this nation in infamy.

Summary

Do Democrats really believe that the majority of Americans have no sense of American history? Do they believe the Americans who lived through the Clinton Impeachment do not remember speeches like this one given by Nadler and others in the House of Representatives? If Democrats believe in Americans and our ability to recognize House actions taken in 1998, they would run from their obvious hypocrisy and stop using the same arguments FOR impeachment of President Trump today that they used AGAINST the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998!

Let’s face facts:

  • There are NO facts in evidence that Constitutionally justify impeachment;
  • There is no historical precedent to which Democrats can point that supported even the Mueller Investigation yet alone Impeachment;
  • Democrats have now three different “circus rings” in which they have attempted to remove Mr. Trump from office. First was the closed hearings in which they looked for potential witnesses for public testimony to expose to the public Mr. Trump’s wrongdoing. Second were the public hearings in which each of their star witnesses bombed when they presented alleged wrongdoing by the President that even if committed were not justification for impeachment. Finally, the final stage set for this week: Rep. Nadler presents Constitutional “experts” to teach Americans about impeachment. Of course, they’ll use their “opinions” of the Constitutional basis for Trump’s impeachment.

That’s it — there’s nothing more!

Oh, by the way: the House of Representatives has been doing NOTHING, is doing NOTHING, and will do NOTHING regarding the governing of the United States. Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler owe the American people multiple apologies for holding the nation hostage to their partisan, dishonest, expensive, and now the three-and-one-half year “vacation” they have taken at our expense to demean the integrity of 63 million American voters who elected Donald Trump.

And, it ain’t over!

Obama Weaponized Foreign Aid

President Trump has been demonized in the latest chapter of the “Dump-Trump” movement for pressuring Ukraine to investigate the alleged corruption of former VP Joe Biden and his son. In that telephone call between Mr. Trump and the newly elected president of Ukraine Zelensky, the Biden corruption investigation in Ukraine was mentioned. While Vice President, Biden publicly threatened to withhold an approximate $1 Billion of U.S. aid to Ukraine unless that prosecutor investigating Biden and his son was fired. Biden gave them six hours to do so. They fired the prosecutor and the relief was released.

Democrats have parlayed that phone call into the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” to launch formal impeachment proceedings against the President. It has been a fiasco. Partisan witnesses one after another were paraded before Rep. Adam Schiff’s committee to each demean President Trump’s Ukraine actions in an effort to build support from Americans sufficient to drive Trump from the White House.

The fundamental premise for their actions is the alleged use of U.S. aid to force Ukraine to restart the investigation into the Bidens. Why the uproar? Democrats’ justification (though lame) is that it is somehow unethical to use foreign aid to pressure foreign countries to do the bidding of America.

First, that’s not illegal. Secondly, it has been common practice for president after president going all the way back to the very first time foreign aid from the U.S. was given. And, guess what? Barack Obama used foreign aid multiple times to force countries to subvert to his opinion and policies on various issues. He even weaponized his foreign support for purely social issues — NOT anything involved in U.S. or other nations’ laws!

Obama’s Foreign Aid Blackmail Scheme: “Quid Pro Quo”

In July of 2015, the eyes of the world were on Africa as President Obama welcomed Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to the White House and, for the first time as president, Obama visited his father’s home country of Kenya.

Reports indicated that Buhari and Obama discussed the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, as well as possible political and economic reforms for Buhari’s struggling country. Similar discussions took place during the Kenya trip.

While all seemed well on the public front, the reality is that both Buhari’s and Obama’s visits were used by the White House to promote what Pope Francis called “ideological colonization.” This agenda was let slip just days before Buhari arrived in Washington when the U.S. State Department indicated it would push the Nigerian government to redefine marriage.

According to the Nigerian Pilot, America’s Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told reporters that “as a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria, as well as other governments which have provided legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community.”

Thomas-Greenfield defended the pressure, saying it was not international interference in Nigeria’s domestic affairs, but rather is “very much a work in progress…I think you will agree with me that the law in Nigeria went far in discriminating against this community but also people who associate with them. So, we will continue to press the government, to press the legislature to change these laws and provide human rights for all Nigerian people regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Across Africa, millions of people face starvation, war, oppression, poverty, and death due to a lack of essential aid. For decades, the United States has provided many forms of assistance designed to help nations resolve these problems.

Under the Obama administration, however, humanitarian aid often came with a price tag: Abandoning traditional values, especially those related to contraception, abortion, and marriage.

In 2011, Obama issued a memorandum that directed all U.S. embassies worldwide to promote LGBT rights, which he said were “central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights.”

“Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action to promote the fundamental human rights of LGBT persons everywhere,” he said.

That same year, the administration made aid to Nigeria dependent upon it’s not enacting the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. And before she stepped down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton compared same-sex relationships to race and sex in a speech that left African leaders furious.

In 2016, at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both suggested that Africa’s war-torn, impoverished nations could attract economic and development aid from the West by becoming more gay-friendly.

This is social engineering at its finest, but it is not limited to redefining marriage. Contraception and abortion policies — carefully disguised as “family planning” — are also pushed upon Nigeria, whose citizens have rejected these mandates, which they consider harmful anti-women policies. (”Family planning:” sound familiar?)

Again, this “ideological colonization” is not limited to Nigeria. During his visit to Kenya, Obama publicly lectured President Uhuru Kenyatta on his nation’s laws against same-sex sexual relationships. According to CNN, sexual relations between males over 14 is illegal and punishable by as many as 14 years in prison.

Think about this: the Obama Administration is the same administration that spent tens of billions of dollars PLUS substantial political capital on that infamous Iranian deal Obama put in place without Congress that included virtually no requirements of performance of any kind by Iran. And Iran outwardly supports terrorists! And then Obama opened relations with Cuba despite requiring NO political reforms from the Castro dictatorship.

African leaders have long opposed Obama’s 21st-century imperialism, especially religious leaders. Ignatius Kaigama, an Archbishop in Nigeria – whose diocese is in the heart of the area affected by the terrorist organization Boko Haram – and Bishop Joseph Osei-Bonsu of Ghana said they were tired of international pressure to legalize gay marriage.

The Nigerian law explains, “Marriage is between a man and a woman… even outside of scriptural support, our culture tells us that, nature tells us that.”

And despite threats of denial of much-needed aid, he says, Africans will not give in to the demands. “These are our cultures, and we’re not going to compromise over them.”

Former Population Research Institute Media and Research Coordinator Anne Morse went to Kenya during the Obama Administration. An observation she made on Facebook explained a lot:

“Dear President Obama,” wrote Morse, “please justify why–for every dollar USAID spends on water and sanitation in Kenya–it spends TWELVE dollars on family planning.” Morse noted that she “had seen four television advertisements for condoms today, but hasn’t had a hot shower since Sunday.”

The worst example of America’s new-age imperialism was found in the growing evidence that President Obama purposely withheld aid to fight the terrorist group Boko Haram. While Buhari’s predecessor was accused of refusing U.S. aid to fight terrorism, what has been less reported is that the refusal came in part because the United States demanded Nigeria change its laws on marriage.

These accusations aren’t just coming from Catholic bishops. A former U.S. Congressman, a Pentagon Army spokesperson, a Nigerian official, and the Nigerian Ambassador to the United States all confirmed this was the case. To quote Ambassador Adebowale Adefuye in his statement to the Council on Foreign Relations, “the U.S. government has refused to grant Nigeria’s request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists (Boko Haram) within a short time.”

Nigerian-American Winnie Obike, a candidate in political communications at the University of Maryland, said she was “appalled by the Obama administration’s foreign policy objectives for the African continent.”

“It was ironic that a president who passionately apologized for America’s 19th and 20th century imperialism adopted a twenty-first century imperialism toward Africa by forcing nations to change their beliefs on marriage, abortion, and contraception in exchange for basic humanitarian aid,” said Obike, who was the Minority Outreach Coordinator for the Minnesota for Marriage Campaign.

“Nigeria and other African nations need humanitarian aid and help fighting terrorist groups like Boko Haram, not the West’s declining values,” said Obike. “I urge President Buhari not to compromise traditional values in exchange for foreign aid.”

In 2009, President Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize because many hoped he would lead the world to greater peace and security. The world looked in, hoping that he would take action to justify the award. He could have easily done so by setting aside his ideology and focusing on the real aid needed by Nigerians, Kenyans, and many other Africans. As we all know, that did not happen.

Summary

Try as I might, I cannot find any way to reconcile the consistent and non-stop hypocrisy of the actions of House Democrats regarding their faux-impeachment process to rid Washington of Donald Trump. It is unconscionable that they somehow justify their doing so to an alleged demand by President Trump of Ukraine to investigate Biden corruption in Ukraine in exchange for U.S. foreign aid. I’ll say this one more time: Even if the President did just that it would not have been unusual, illegal, but would have been part of his (and that of any other U.S. president) duty as American president to honor the 1999 Treaty between the U.S. and Ukraine to work together to rid each country of corruption of every kind that involved in any way the other’s country or members of its government. 

If the truth were known, Rep. Schiff would probably have wanted to instigate impeachment proceedings against Mr. Trump if he had NOT restarted corruption investigations by Ukraine IN Ukraine as part of the treaty.

All of the facts of this story have been in the public domain for some time. Yet no one in the Lame-Stream media has made any effort to report the facts. It’s far more palatable for them to continue their nonstop stream of vitriol at this President who refuses to play the Deep State D.C. games to perpetuate the flow of power, control, and money from D.C. to their minions to support their often illegal actions at the expense of the American people.

Isn’t it sad that President Obama was using same-sex marriage and abortion as a bargaining chit for the United States to send money to African nations to buy food, clean water, medical supplies, and to acquire military-grade equipment to destroy the Islamic Terrorist organization Boko Haram? Remember those several hundred young African girls kidnapped and held by Boko Haram for several years in which they were enslaved and turned into sex toys of those terrorists? All of those babies’ horrors and pain and brutality at the hands of those monsters fall on Barack Obama, who refused to fund measures to obliterate those terrorists. Those young girls would have never been kidnapped or turned into sex slaves. And the U.S. President refused because he demanded those African nations to mirror HIS values about sex, abortion, and same-sex marriage. And Obama did all that in the name of the American people.

I don’t know which is worse: Obama doing so or the Media hiding what he did and the details for years from the American people. And today’s Lame-Stream media are trying to turn what Obama DID do into something that President Trump did NOT do. And House Democrats are using the misrepresentations, lies, and lawlessness to impeach the President, and in doing so, subvert the wills of 63 million American voters who voted for Mr. Trump.

Mr. Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize WAS a joke and is now a travesty thrust on the World that has destroyed a large number of the African people in the name of political elitism. And the World thinks you and I supported his doing so.

Ode To America

Have you ever traveled overseas? If you have, did you notice how foreigners treat us as Americans? It certainly depends on the country in which you find yourself, but people, on the most part, treat us as if we are blessed or fortunate or just plain lucky to be Americans.

You wouldn’t think that based on the picture painted by the Media about the worldview of a Trump United States.

I not long ago spent a couple of months on business in Europe and Malaysia. I spent time in Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, and northern Italy and then several weeks in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This trip was my first foray into Europe, and I was surprised at the diversity of thought between nations. Switzerland was in many respects, much like the U.S. Locals in Milan were ambivalent to my being American, but they did not want American dollars! Malaysia was incredible. Their food, culture, entertainment, and hospitality were some of the best of each I’ve ever experienced

Though nations were different, there was almost a universal feeling I got regarding how they felt about the U.S. and all of us.

They acted as if we are the most educated, affluent, and fortunate people on Earth. That probably doesn’t surprise you. But what shocked me and surely will you was the almost universal sense I had of locals in each of those countries: they are shocked that Americans do not appreciate the freedoms, opportunities, and diversity Americans have just because we are Americans.

Maybe it’s because we’re spoiled or because we take all we have for granted. I think it’s a combination of those plus the fact we are told again and again by an antagonistic press that what was formerly useful in the U.S. is now wrong and that what was once evil we fought in other countries to keep from coming here is excellent. What a paradox!

Change

What changed in the U.S.? Do we segue from generation to generation, leaving everything we learned behind when each generation disappears?

We Baby Boomers heard the stories of World War II, the Korean Conflict, and we either watched or participated in Vietnam. But our kids didn’t see any of that. They didn’t experience any of the loss, the anger, the pain, or the fear of any of those conflicts. They’re all just stories to them.

Even the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11 are nothing but a story to the current crop of American young adults. Sure they understand 3000 Americans died at the hands of terrorists. But making that applicable to them has not happened and probably will not.

Perspective controls what we think regardless of its truth.

Maybe the Europeans have a bit more respect for America than do many Americans because of their perspective. Europe has experienced far more wars and conflicts on their soil than have Americans. Their firsthand views of violence, terror, and war are certainly flavored differently than ours and that of our children.

With that in mind, I share here what one European writer had to say in an editorial about America and Americans shortly after 9/11. It might explain where the U.S. WAS as compared to where the U.S. IS.

We rarely get a chance to see another country’s editorial about the USA. Remember what our country was like 18 years ago.

Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. Mr. Cornel Nistorescu wrote the article and published under the title ‘C’ntarea Americii,’ meaning ‘Ode To America,’ in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei ‘The Daily Event’ or ‘News of the Day’ – 18 years ago.

A Romanian ”Ode to America”

Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.

On 9/11, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers. Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about.

Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.

After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On every occasion, they started singing: ‘God Bless America !’

I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being? Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy. What on earth unites the Americans in such a way? Their land? Their history? Their economic Power? Money? I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion… Only freedom can work such miracles.

Summary

He saw something that impressed him. What was it? Is it still here? Would he write the same story today as then?

These are questions for which it would behoove us all to dig deep and find truthful answers. I’ll go out on a limb and say that today’s America is a vastly different America than in 2002. In the aftermath of 9/11, Americans worked together for the common good of the nation. Certainly, there then were millions of Americans with differing political perspectives on millions of issues. Certainly, there are today millions of Americans with differing political views on millions of topics. What was absent for the most part in 2001 and for a few years after lives and thrives in the U.S. today. What is it? Political animus and even hatred for those with opposing views. The nature of discourse has morphed into nothing but blame and disdain.

Where is that common good around which we all rallied in 2001?

I have no idea.

Can we get it back?

Again, I have no idea.

What if we cannot?

Common Ground

Many Americans wonder who and what they can still trust. The institutions that once bound us are disappearing, and we no longer seem to have each other’s backs. Everyone appears to have a different version of world events, and it feels harder than ever to sort fact from fiction. Our news feeds seem just to echo our views, and when people post alternative opinions, they are often attacked by angry mobs. We don’t seem to disagree anymore without perceiving another person’s beliefs as stupid, wrong, or even evil. We’re being played off each other; and told to see each other as threats and enemies, not Americans just like us but with separate experiences and views. The loudest and most extreme voices get heard, and others feel like tuning out altogether.

Nobody wants to turn the clocks back, because there was a lot that wasn’t right about the world of the past. Today, we seem more fractured and fragmented than anyone can remember. Instead of helping us find solutions to move us all forward, politics is driving us apart.

When people don’t understand each other, they can’t converse or find common ground. Yet somehow, if we could only press a “reset” button, it feels like things could be different, and we could move forward together as a country.

There is far more common ground among Americans than we might imagine, judging from the constant conflict among pundits, politicians, and social media users. This is true even on some of our most debated issues.

For example, a full 81 percent of the population agrees that racism continues to be at least somewhat serious problem in the United States. The fact that the overwhelming majority of people acknowledge that racism is a real problem opens the door for continued conversations about how the country moves forward.

Another critical area of agreement is the aspect of immigration policy regarding Dreamers: people brought to the United States illegally as children and given provisional legal status under the DACA program during the Obama administration. Three-quarters of all Americans believe there should be a pathway for these individuals to obtain citizenship through serving in the military or attending college. This exemplifies how the current polarization is leading to gridlock in American politics and preventing us from finding solutions supported by an overwhelming majority.

One issue that Americans regularly discuss is that they feel people have become too quick to take offense and criticize others’ use of language. Four out of five Americans believe “political correctness has gone too far in America”—an issue where most Americans with liberal views agree with Conservatives, again showing America is so much more than two groups with opposite views driven by animus and disdain for those in the other group.

Here’s what I believe:

  • The American electorate is more complicated than the simple story of political division that would make us understand.

  • The reason American society appears to be split 50/50 is that the loudest and most extreme viewpoints dominate airtime and social media space. And they each declare theirs is the voice of the Majority.

  • The majority of Americans are frustrated and fed up with partisanship. They want to return to the mutual good faith and unified spirit that characterize a healthy democracy.

  • Being able to discuss our disagreements remains essential. At the root of those disagreements are differences in core beliefs — how we see the world.

  • While our differences are often rooted in contrasts, that should not mean we cannot find common ground.

  • By acknowledging and respecting the values that give real-life our beliefs, we can restore respect and unity IF we choose to move that direction.

The vast majority of Americans — three out of four — believe our differences are not so vast that we cannot come together. But here’s the only dilemma that MUST be addressed and resolved if that will ever happen: those on both sides of EACH conversation about EACH difference must not only have the desire for reconciliation, but must be willing to negotiate and compromise sufficient to reach a consensus that can result in the unity Americans so desperately desire.

That’s certainly a tall order. But Americans can do that, IF we want it badly enough.

Thanks

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of a month or so of retrospection for most of us. It’s a month of self-examination, of looking into our life circumstances, of where we are, where we were, who we are, and who is doing life with us. Many times we think back through the years and wonder “What if?” We’re not going to do that today. Quite honestly, we probably shouldn’t be doing that at all.

Holiday seasons wrapped around Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, and New Years can be really good but can also be devastating. Which of these applies to us is based solely on our perspective.

What’s your perspective today?

Our perspective today could be based on a lifelong friend’s circumstances that is fighting for his life today in a California hospital after suffering a crippling massive heart attack on Monday. His children from as far away as Florida rushed to be with him, each unsure of their life perspective this holiday season because their Dad may not be part of their lives much longer. It could be based on the recent loss of a job or even a spouse, the death of a loved one. In the mirror opposite, it could be one flooded with the joy of becoming a parent for the first time, the pending marriage in the aftermath of a tragic breakup from which fear has dominated for years thinking there was no hope for a fulfilling relationship.

The perspective this holiday season each of us looks through may be different. It may be dominated by negative thoughts of crushing horrors or the glee of everything working out. But what is worth contemplating as we head into a new year is that we can do just that: examine choices that we have every right to make for our own lives. Most of our World neighbors don’t have those types of options. And they’re stuck in circumstances of which they have little or no control.

For just a moment while we’re together, let’s just put aside our fear, our pain, our worry, our loneliness, our anger, our jealousy, our pettiness, our lack of whatever we lack for, and our superiority. Let’s spend a little time today (and in upcoming days), pause, and say, “Thanks.”

Let’s try something different today. And I’m with you on this. Let’s just take a pause. Let’s don’t forget about the bad things we’re dealing with. Let’s just not concentrate on those today. In fact, let’s not even think of ourselves for the next few minutes. Think about your relatives — a cousin, an aunt, a grandmother, maybe a brother or sister or a Mom or Dad. Maybe you will not see them today or even this season. And maybe there are some awful hurts that you have experienced from these relationships. Know this: there is something good that comes from everything that happens to us if we let it. So instead of concentrating on the hurt you may have felt and may still feel this very moment, think about the good things they brought into your life at some point. Whatever those good things are were and still are valuable. And we’re blessed for having those good things. Pause for a moment and quietly say, “Thank You.”

Try today to take a few moments alone. You may not be able to do that until the food is all eaten, dishes all washed and put away, and everyone heads out to get set for Black Friday shopping, but find a few moments that you can be quiet with just your thoughts, your memories. Try this: think slowly and carefully about all those people in your life who have invested some moment, some treasure, some positive words or maybe just smiles into your life. Speak their name quietly and say, “Thank you.” Go down your list and do it over and over and over.

The tears will come. The smiles and giggles will come. But what will certainly come is wave after wave of gratitude for your even having them in your life. Do you know what else will come? An overwhelming desire to get on the phone! Do it. But don’t do it for you. Do it for them.

I’ll close by saying this: I’m not sure who is listening or reading this today. But whoever you are, wherever you are, I want you to know that I’m thankful you have taken a few moments to look or listen-in. Your doing so is not lost on this 66-year-old Cajun who is fighting back tears of thankfulness for you being here.

You’re each a treasure to far more people than you know.

Enjoy those you spend the day with. Call those you love who you can’t be with today. When you speak to them, make sure you tell them how much you love them and how thankful you are that they are part of your life. You will never regret doing so. And they won’t regret you’re doing so either.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hillary Hides Pedophilia in Her State Dept.

NBC Admits Hillary Clinton Used her Job to Cover up Pedophile Rings as Secretary of State

Whoa! While it has been rumored for some time that the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate had some personal involvement with underage prostitution and pedophilia, those rumors remained “rumors” — until now. While still not confirmed, it is factual that investigations are currently underway into illegal sexual activities that involved U.S. State Department employees, some of which are “high level” employees — even an Ambassador. A State Department whistleblower has given the Inspector General quite a bit of information that includes documents with explicit details. Those allegations have been under investigation apparently for some months and may be as long as eighteen months. Though much is unclear and certainly some features are unknown, what we DO know is that this alleged pedophilia activity at the U.S. State Department happened while Clinton was Secretary of State and that she at least had in-depth knowledge of details. It is unknown if she had any personal involvement.

NBC broke the story and reported it on-air one time. We cannot find any follow-up NBC News story that gives more details or even references the investigation.

The NBC investigation was broadcast at a time when they were still a real news organization rather than a branch of the Democratic Party’s PR department and provided internal State Department memos to back up claims of a massive Hillary Clinton elite pedophile ring cover-up.

“Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” NBC anchor Chuck Todd announced before launching into the disturbing details that mainstream media would be unable to report on in 2017.

“According to internal State Department memos, the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly illegal, inappropriate behavior within its ranks allegedly to protect jobs and avoid scandals.”

“There is an old saying in Washington that the cover-up is worse than the crime. But in this case, both parts of it are disturbing,” Chuck Todd continued.

“Allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not researched. So the State Department has to respond to those claims, and those investigations involve misconduct by State Department officials, including an Ambassador and security agents attached to then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.”

“The allegations are that these investigations were whitewashed, quashed altogether and that those orders came from high up.”

“NBC has obtained documents relating to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations involving State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. A State Department memo says, quote, “the Ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.”

“The memo also says a top State Department official directed State Department investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct.” It’s just one of what another document describes as “several examples of undue influence” from top State Department officials.”

(There is something very puzzling in this story reported by NBC News. We’ll explain in our Summary below)

Pizza Gate

Do you remember the noise during the 2016 campaign alleging that Hillary Clinton was somehow involved in an unofficial “sex club” operating at Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, D.C? The pizza parlor allegedly became a meeting place for adults engaged in sexual activities that included prostitution and pedophilia. It purportedly included as “participants” both of the Clintons and the Podesta Brothers — the most potent non-elected Washington resident in political circles — Tony Podesta — and his brother, John, who at the time served as campaign manager for Hillary Clinton.

Major media reports on “Pizzagate“ — as this earth-shattering story would be named —  would have us believe that anyone who gives credence to this story is off their rocker. The term “fake news” rose to prominence shortly after this story broke in early November of 2016, and was quickly applied to debunk any report seriously investigating Pizzagate.

Only one significant media news report (from the CBS Atlanta affiliate) presented substantial evidence of this disturbing story of influential people possibly involved in pedophilia. Yet two days after its airing, that revealing news video was strangely removed from the CBS website and replaced by a report on fake news about Donald Trump. This disappearance of an important news story and the undeniable evidence below suggests Pizzagate is a vast story that someone may not want Americans to know.

Note that the pedophilia issue has nothing to do with political affiliation. Though Pizzagate involves mostly high-level Democrats, many Republicans are guilty of child abuse. The most prominent case – which got very little press – was the conviction of Republican Dennis Hastert, who served as the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, one of the most powerful political positions in the Unites States. Hastert was sent to prison by a judge who called him a “serial child molester.” He also happens to be friends with Tony Podesta.

Pizzagate originated from the Wikileaks release of thousands of emails from John Podesta in October and November of 2016. (Podesta formerly served as chief of staff for Bill Clinton in the White House before much later becoming campaign manager for Hillary Clinton.) The Pizzagate story got its name from several strange usages of the word pizza in the released emails. Yet the most convincing evidence of something serious involving Pizzagate can be found in the archived Instagram account of James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, D.C.

James Alefantis

Alefantis is connected with John Podesta, as evidenced by an email exchange released by Wikileaks in which Podesta agrees to have dinner with him. Alefantis is also friends with John Podesta’s lobbyist brother Tony, who was named by GQ Magazine as one of the 50 most influential people in Washington, D.C. John Podesta did not make that list, by the way, yet strangely, James Alefantis was numbered among those on this list of the 50 most influential people in Washington.

All but a handful of the 50 people listed on GQ’s list are deeply involved in politics or the media, and many are household names. So how did James Alefantis, known only as an owner of two DC restaurants and an art aficionado, make this list of most influential people?

To explore this question, take a look at the archived Instagram account of Alefantis, who goes by the username “jimmycomet.” Shortly after the Pizzagate story exploded on the Internet, he made his account private, but it is still available in the archives at the link below.

By way of disclaimer, please remember that TruthNewsNetwork does not confirm or deny the accuracy of allegations that are made here for which we have no personal confirmation. Several news sources have corroborated this particular story. However, (especially in this caustic news environment), we give you information that is “out there” and, to us, are more than just wild allegations. Keeping that in mind, feel free to access below Mr. Alefantis’ Instagram account. But warning, be prepared for some disconcerting images, some of which are very sexually suggestive. We offer this link so that you can see and hear some of the degradation that seems to reside in our nation’s Capital.

I hesitated to publish that link. The content is disgusting. Regardless of who is or who is not involved in this particular chapter of “Pedophilia in D.C.,” any at all should repulse all Americans and anger you for it happening at all.

Before we summarize today’s story and add that revelation we promised at the end of the first segment, know this: Donald Trump and his Department of Justice have been crazed at rounding up and prosecuting human and sex traffickers along with pedophiles.

Numbers Never Lie

During Trump’s first month in office alone, authorities arrested over 1500 individuals for charges related to pedophilia, while there were less than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests in 2014, according to the FBI.

According to a report published by the White House in March of 2018, 518 victims of human trafficking were rescued, and 1,602 human trafficking suspects were arrested in 2017 by a dedicated unit at the Department of Homeland Security.

During the same time, a government-funded human-trafficking hotline received reports leading to the identification of 21,644 victims.

After a nationwide sting targeting sex offenders online captured more than 2,300 pedophiles. This criminal sweep occurred during March, April, and May of 2018, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

The DOJ announced the arrests in June and revealed the effort was called “Operation Broken Heart,” but the massive round-up of suspected online child sex offenders has gone virtually unreported by the major national media.

In addition to the 2,300-plus arrests, Operation Broken Heart led to the identification of 195 offenders guilty of child pornography or child sex abuse, and the identification of 383 child victims of child pornography or sexual abuse, reported ICE in a statement.

This story should be the biggest story in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely if at all covered these mass pedophile arrests. As Border Patrol confirmed, human traffickers recycle children at our borders while liberals cry over immigration policies.

Summary

This story today is not a “stand-alone.” It must be viewed in the context of the corruption that long ago took control of many of America’s elected officials and others who work in our government. Why it happened and how it happened are both unimportant. What IS important is that it lives with us, it impacts the lives of millions of innocent men, women, and children, and it is destroying the moral fabric of our nation right in front of us.

When one puts today’s story together with yesterday’s account of the concerted media consortium with the Democrat Party to commit wholesale news fraud every day on the American people, it’s easy to understand how vapid from morality, truth, and justice our government is. Members of the Media just tag along.

We have no idea just how much of all this is sexual wrongdoing is hidden from us. I’m sure it’s far more than the plethora of examples we are allowed to see. Probably if we knew just how much, we’d be scared to death.

Do you still say to the TruthNewsNetwork staff and me “You’re just in the tank as conspiracy theorists? None of this hoopla is true.” If you still think that, digest this:

The NBC Story on pedophilia in the State Department on Secretary Hillary Clinton’s watch was first reported on NBC —- IN 2013!

Obama did nothing to follow and investigate the story. His DOJ stood silent. And the Democrat News Agencies took their cue and followed suit: no follow-up in NBC, nothing from CNN or MSNBC. Certainly, there was no mention in the Washington Post or New York Times. They’re all in the tank.

Thankfully for the young boys and girls in the nation, President Trump promised while campaigning and followed suit after his oath of office: tens of thousands of those implicated in human and sex trafficking and pedophilia have been brought to justice — far more in just three years than in all eight of Obama’s White House.

Haven’t you heard about any? Exactly! Mainstream media is in the tank with Democrats. Most — but certainly not all — of those implicated in this debauchery are Democrats. But there’s plenty of blame to go around.

Today as never before, we must all be committed to this: if you see something involving kids and possible sexual abuse of any kind, call the FBI. They have taken swift and severe action in the last three years to save thousands of kids of all ages. No child deserves to awaken every day, afraid for their lives.

We can stop it. We MUST stop it. And we need government servants who not only agree with that but will harness with their political might whatever they can contribute to this cause.

Our kids deserve that.

Corruption U.S. Government Style

We just simply accept it. It goes unnoticed. Remember those family reunions where old Uncle Bill always showed up, never had much to say, but was still the odd person in the room? No one felt comfortable in a one-on-one conversation with him. He just stayed to himself.

That’s the example of the role Corruption plays in our government today. It’s always there but seldom discussed or pointed out. Everyone knows it’s around and how powerful it is. We just don’t talk about it.

U.S. Government corruption has been outed, however. No longer is Uncle Bill slinking quietly around us. Corruption has been exposed!

Today we will examine specific and demonstrative examples of today’s corruption in our government: no allegations, no assumptions, just facts.

#1: Ukraine – “Quid Pro Quo”

This example of corruption needs very little if any explanation. In the Impeachment Inquiry, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) quietly changed the impeachable charge against the President from “Quid Pro Quo” to “Extortion and Bribery.” Why? Because in Dems’ focus groups, “Quid Pro Quo” did not sell well.

Biden in a speech to the Foreign Affairs Council actually admitted that he threatened the former Ukraine President with the withholding of almost $1 Billion in Congressionally approved U.S. foreign aid unless the Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating corruption of Biden’s son Hunter and Hunter’s Ukraine gas company was fired. In fact, the VP gave Ukraine six hours to terminate the prosecutor. The prosecutor was terminated. What Vice President Biden did was a perfect example of extortion. And as the second most powerful man in world politics, Obama’s Vice President extorted Ukraine’s President. What is extortion?

“Extortion: the crime of obtaining money or some other thing of value by the abuse of one’s office or authority.”

There certainly was extortion by an American regarding Ukraine. The shakedown was not only committed but glorified triumphantly before the Foreign Affairs Council by Barack Obama’s Vice President, Joe Biden.

#2: “Selling A Lie to Close a Deal”

Rep. Adam Schiff has shown he’ll do and say anything to destroy the President — even con the American people. He dismisses the ability of any American to see, hear, and understand the truth.

As “The Sheriff” in this impeachment inquiry, Schiff began the first hearing regarding the Trump phone call with Ukraine’s President Zelensky by telling Americans: “Here’s how Mr. Trump extorted the people of Ukraine.” Schiff then read this transcript of the phone call, quoting President Trump:

“We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from YOU though. And I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good,” Schiff read from his fabricated conversation.

“I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it,” he continued.

“On this and on that. I’m gonna put you in touch with people and not just any people,” he continued, affecting an accent meant to resemble Trump’s. “I’m going to put you with the attorney general of the United States, my attorney general Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him.”

“And I’m gonna put you in touch with Rudy, you’re gonna love him, trust me,” Schiff said, still avoiding any real quotations from the transcript. “You know what I’m asking, so I’m only going to say this a few more times, in a few more ways. And by the way don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I’ve asked.

Schiff fabricated the entire “transcript” he read to millions of Americans in his opening remarks of the hearing!

He never told Americans this version — HIS version — of the call was a total fabrication. He represented to Americans that President Trump said these things to Zelensky. His actions in this were Corrupt.

#3: “Holding Ukraine Military Aid”

We’ve heard it again and again: “President Trump in temporarily holding military aid Congress had approved for Ukraine was an extortion attempt to force Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden — the chief election foe for Donald Trump in the 2020 election.”

Was there corruption in withholding aid from Ukraine? If so, how so?

There WAS!

In 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea and began arming separatists in eastern Ukraine with tanks, armored vehicles, and rocket launchers, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko came to Washington to plead for weapons to defend his country. In an impassioned address to a joint session of Congress — with Biden sitting directly behind him — Poroshenko said his country appreciated the nonlethal assistance he was getting, but declared “one cannot win a war with blankets.”

The Obama-Biden administration was unmoved. The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that “President Barack Obama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine.” Why?

Team Obama feared that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.

So what did the administration give him? Instead of rocket-propelled grenades, we provided food rations and blankets!

Here’s the corruption: Ukraine had disarmed materials the Russian invasion as part of a deal made with the Obama Administration. The reason Ukraine agreed to disarm? President Obama promised Ukraine President Poroshenko that in the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine, the U.S. would protect Ukraine militarily.

What was necessary from the U.S. in specific military aid to Ukraine were Javelin missiles — small but deadly missiles that are amazingly effective to disarm Russian tanks. Ukraine was told the U.S. would provide those Javelin missiles. Instead, they were given rations and blankets because Obama did not want to upset Putin.

I thought Donald Trump was in the pocket of the Russian President.

NOTE: The U.S. ultimately provided Javelin missiles to Ukraine — but not by President Obama — by the Trump Administration

#4: The Ukraine-U.S. Anti-Corruption Treaty

Did you notice that during the Obama Administration, the two world-changing multi-national agreements that were finalized and trumpeted as being the two most important such agreements in existence were NOT treaties? Have you ever wondered why?

U.S. treaties are negotiated by the Administration and then confirmed by the U.S. Senate, so they have the full force in enforcement by the U.S. Government.

Neither the Iran Nuclear deal or the Paris Climate Accords were ever confirmed by the Senate and therefore were NOT treaties and therefore not enforceable. Why would the Obama Administration handle it this way? So they would have universal control of every aspect of these agreements with NO government oversight.

But there is a Ukraine-United States treaty in which both countries mutually agree to find, investigate, and prosecute corruption in each government that impacts the other country. Here’s a link to the actual treaty signed by President Bill Clinton in 1999.

We apologize but it appears that the U.S. Gov’t has blocked our ability to publish the Ukraine-U.S. Treaty on our site. However, if you would like a .pdf of the Treaty, simply email us at dan@TruthNewsNet.org and we’ll attach it to a return email to you immediately. Again we’re sorry.  Dan

Americans forget that President Obama named Vice President Biden to supervise significant alleged corruption in Ukraine during his second term. Biden was the “Ukraine Corruption Czar” during the 2016 election. And U.S. intelligence investigations verified during the 2016 election in the U.S.; there was significant corruption from Ukraine to attack the campaign of then-candidate Donald Trump.

To that end, wasn’t there a requirement for the U.S. President no matter who won to (based on the Treaty) work with Ukraine to find, investigate, and prosecute any wrongdoers for acts committed during the 2016 campaign?

#5: “Faux” Obstruction of Justice

House Democrats let subpoenas fly: to witnesses for personal sworn testimony before committees and documents. President Trump has exerted “Executive Privilege” in numerous cases preventing some staffers from testifying and also for the production of certain documents. Of course, Schiff and Company have cried foul from the get-go, claiming “President Trump is obstructing justice.” In fact, according to those Democrats, the President’s doing so is impeachable as “Obstruction of Justice.”

Why would Mr. Trump stop testimony and document production? Almost all of those subpoenaed to testify and virtually all of the documents subpoenaed were provided to Robert Mueller in his investigation. Also, certain persons in the White House who consistently meet with the President on many top-secret foreign and domestic matters simply cannot testify and certain documents cannot be provided for national security reasons. But Democrats will have nothing of it.

Executive Privilege is a policy used solely for situations like this to protect national security and to protect undercover operations and those who are undercover at the time. President Trump exerting Executive Privilege and its subsequent results in the Impeachment Inquiry have led numerous Democrats to notch their “Causes to Impeach Trump” belt labeling Executive Privilege as just one more example of Obstruction of Justice.

But did Barack Obama obstruct justice in using Executive Privilege? He certainly used Executive Privilege numerous times during his eight years. But no one ever heard anyone from the Republican Party and certainly no media outlets crying for the impeachment of President Obama. There certainly IS Quid Pro Quo in reverse: Obama scated abusing Executive Privilege and President Trump faces impeachment! Here are just nine examples of President Obama’s claims of privilege:

  1. Eric Holder refuses to provide subpoenaed Fast & Furious documents — and people died!
  2. Lois Lerner of the IRS refuses to testify on IRS targeting of conservative non-profit organizations seeking tax-free status.
  3. Obama operative Ben Rhodes not allowed to testify on Iran Nuclear Deal which kept its sleazy details from the public.
  4. Treasury officials blocked from testifying on Obamacare subsidies so no one knew their sources until a year or so later.
  5. White House refuses to allow its political director to testify about an organization formed to work politically from within the White House for re-election using White House sources — which is illegal.
  6. Justice Kagan’s Obamacare conflict on interest came from her work before being nominated to the Supreme Court in actually crafting the legislation. The Senate Judiciary Committee subpoenaed records of her work during her confirmation hearings. Obama exerted Executive Privilege to prevent the viewing of those records.
  7. Refusal to provide subpoenaed Solyndra documents. Remember that $500 M taxpayer loan guarantee for the company owned by Obama’s friends? Taxpayers ate that $500 M. Congress wanted to see those records: Nope. Obama declared Executive Privilege.
  8. Refusing to let the White House social secretary testify on party crashers scandal when two got past Secret Service and into an official White House function. Congress naturally investigated the breach and subpoenaed the White House Social Secretary for testimony. Obama declared Executive Privilege to prevent her appearance.
  9. Fighting subpoenas in the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation investigation. Two Black Panther members stationed themselves in front of a polling location in Philadelphia at a senior, mostly-white area. They Panthers brandished weapons to intimidate voters. Attorney General Eric Holder refused to take Civil Rights actions and to investigate the pair and refused to turnover any records to Congress. Obama gave him a pass from doing so.

Summary

I know: that’s only Five examples of specific government corruption. We promised Six. We’ll let you off easy today by simply telling you what the sixth example is: the media arm of the United States Government — the Media. The Mainstream Media are now actually an informal yet powerful branch of government. On another day, we’ll give you examples of exact corruption on their part — some of which you already know.

Folks, our government is corrupt! There are no ways to explain it away. And each day we watch as new evidence appears that confirms its existence and power that is growing in numbers of instances and boldness.

We should all be ashamed and probably all are afraid. And we should be. Government corruption is far past a mark at which we can regain control. I’m not sure what will be necessary to salvage what’s left of our representative republic. But what I AM sure of is that President Trump is a key cog in the wheel of justice that is perceived by the Left to be capable of reining in their corruption. They’re afraid of him! And they should be.

Pray for our nation. Pray for its leaders. And pray for truthfulness and fairness under the Law. If God answers those prayers and people allow His answers to be fulfilled, we’ll be fine.

Hello: My Name is “Corruption”

Just over a year ago this story and podcast was published here. Little did we know it would be even more applicable today — one year later.

This is the first of two parts to this horror story. Today’s podcast gives you a glimpse of what’s in store. Tomorrow’s offering in which we reveal to you the five most egregious examples of corruption from the Left — or “Deep State” as they have become known — will nauseate you. None of these will be hearsay examples, opinions drawn from personal conclusions, or allegations. Each will be factual proof of the specifics of corruption that are alive today, not just in the U.S., but in other countries in which our government right before our eyes has sowed these evil seeds.

When first published, we did not have 600+ subscribers who attend the University of Moscow. These young men and women who are looking and listening in need to know the U.S. has corruption running amuck in our government as do others. Additionally, TruthNewsNetwork has 10,000 new subscribers.

It’s uncanny how what went live here in November of 2018 is even more applicable and appropriate than when first published.

NOTE: I encourage you to listen to the podcast first.

Happy Hunting!

“Corruption”

”I am certain you know who I am. I have been around for a long time. If we haven’t met personally, undoubtedly you’ve seen my handiwork.

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t exist. Honestly, I’m sure I’ve been around as long as you guys. The reason that many don’t recognize me when they see the results of my work is because I have a great attribute that only I can initiate: I make myself look just like anyone I want. I can look like anybody, and I can act just like the wind. You do not SEE the wind, but you see its results — you see what the wind does. When you see leaves on a tree blowing around, you know the wind is there. I can make myself just like that. You don’t necessarily see me; you know what I DO. And I do a lot!

So what do I do? What’s my ‘job?’ I have one goal in life: to get every human I can to blindly accept everything I show them is what they need, and then get them to do ALL of those things. What does that mean? Let me explain.

I find a way to exploit your weaknesses. I’m good at finding them. Let’s face it: they usually are about sex, money, fame, or power. All I have to do is find, which is your ‘poison.’ It’s easy for me to use it against you.

Alexander the Great was extremely insecure. As a boy, he just wanted to be liked. Kids his on age bullied him. All he ever wanted was to retaliate against them all. So I surrounded him with a bunch of guys that I had already made mine. They taught Alex how easy it is to be robust and tower over others as those bullies had done to him. So he did it. He found ways to not only destroy people, but he also slaughtered tens of thousands of humans who stood in the way of his lust for power. The more death and destruction he initiated, the more he wanted. He was my favorite son…for a while.

Europe was secure for me. Stalin and Lenin were easy pawns. Their lust for power made it simple for me to dangle conquest in front of both. Their pride and greed consumed them and destroyed millions of good people. War was just a tool for them to use to spread their brutality. They both fed on all my ‘benefits:’ wealth, sexual perversion, fear, and the domination of their nations citizens’ lives — until those two were through with them. Those plebes were then marched to death camps, the Gulags, or executed.

Before the Russian pawns, I turned Hitler my way. Adolph was pretty easy. He was a shy German lad who hated the Jewish people. He lamented his weaknesses. That made it easy for him to spot in others and flame in him the fires of hatred. I gave him tools that allowed him to easily convince people to follow him. He loved the military, which he used to obliterate Jews that dared to call the Motherland theirs. He conned a large group of military leaders to ‘get rid’ of the Jews — first in Germany, then Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Austria. I gave him the idea of how to exterminate the ‘vermin,’ which he passed along to his minions. His military leaders fired up ovens, gas chambers. The Jews that escaped those were simply starved to death.

But America opened the door for me to expand my craft. There was a group of really strong and honest people who resisted me in the beginning. They set up a government that was designed to assure settlers in the New World the brutal dictatorships and monarchies they lived through in Europe would NEVER dominate America. That government was supposed to be ‘of the People, by the People, and for the People.’ It worked…for a while.

America’s becoming the most powerful, richest, and freest country on Earth made it a candy store for me. I’ve had a field day! When people get fat, content, and happy, Mr. Corruption has a much easier time breaking down those doors. Americans became so content and oblivious to the realities of life elsewhere, they all on the most part adopted an attitude of entitlement that became the easiest portal I’ve ever had to quietly invade a nation.

Do you think slavery just happened? Heck no! Men throughout history lusted for power over other humans. But I used Americans’ pride and laziness to push their thirst for control over others to the limits. Slaveowners took depravity to the lowest depths of humanity. Sex and human trafficking ran amuck. Forcing men, women, and children to play the humiliating role of nothing more than chattel property was one of my greatest achievements. Plantation owners treated slaves like farm animals with no regard for their health, welfare, families, or any role they played other that whatever role the slaveowner chose for them. And I instilled and maintained in all their minds that owning another human was just something they did. ‘Everybody does that!’ made it OK.

I hope you didn’t think when Americans adopted the attitude that government was nothing more than a tool for them to use for their personal enrichment that their doing so was just something that happened. I DID THAT! And it was pretty easy. After all, when men and women live every day of their lives thinking their desires are the only things that matter in their world, they ALWAYS find ways to make certain what they want is available — somehow. I dropped this question into a politician’s head one day: “Why not just use government to take care of all of this. When I control the political might, I control every person, every business, every law, and every dollar. That way, I can have everything I ever want!”

The first politicians I turned took it to some really way-out limits. So I made it clear to them that they needed to keep pushing forward with their political power-grabbing processes, but they needed to keep it quiet. There were always going to be men and women around who would reject me and my ideas and would stick to everything right, legal, and fair. We didn’t need those do-gooders talking to others about us. And it worked.

You may be saying, ‘All this is just a bit too far-fetched!’ Do you REALLY think that?

  • You don’t think I was there when John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln? Booth was one of my guys. Lincoln refused to drink the ‘Corruption Kool-Aid.’ I had to take him out. Booth was just the guy.
  • You don’t think Lee Harvey Oswald acted on his own? That conspiracy theory about ‘Who Shot Kennedy’ was about a real conspiracy. I couldn’t have a guy in power who was teaching Americans to live lives totally opposite to my teaching. He told them ‘Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.’ I couldn’t have this nation become one of people who cared for others!
  • You don’t believe that James Earl Ray shot Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. because Ray was a racist? James Earl Ray was on a mission — for ME! My people needed African Americans to continue to be subservient to Caucasian Americans and live only to fulfill the whims of those ‘superior’ Americans. King was teaching those African Americans that they were really valuable, and were created as equal human beings in every way. I couldn’t allow that!
  • You don’t think those white Southern Democrats came up with those white sheets and the burning hunger to terrorize African Americans on their own? I planted those seeds in their minds. I had created racism! It was an amazing tool to pit one human against another, to perpetuate anger, bigotry, and hatred, and to perpetuate war — real or perceived — between people who are ‘different.’ I had to keep white Americans believing black Americans were unworthy of human dignity. I had to keep black Americans subservient and willing to accept they were less than human.
  • You don’t think that some guy just decided that he didn’t like women and he preferred other guys and some woman that she liked other women? Things regarding sex between men and women had rocked along too quietly for too long. I had to plant those thoughts and confuse those men and women. And I later used that confusion to create an entire political movement to instill and perpetuate some of the most amazing animus yet in America. And it’s still working!
  • I made politicians’ lust for power so consuming they accepted every thought I gave them as to how to build and perpetuate power while hiding their intentions, methods, and actions in accumulating all the power in the U.S. necessary to enslave the entire population without them even knowing it.
  • I created blackmail. I taught politicians how to use it to enslave their fellow legislators, forcing them to commit the most disgusting acts against others one can imagine. Politicians were forced to go along with horrific and heinous acts against American citizens in every way imaginable: confiscatory tax policies, theft of citizens’ rights and property, unfair criminal law and prosecution, personal enrichment through unimaginable schemes — all while opening the door to bigger and bigger government to allow an elite class of Americans to self-determine every aspect of life for every American with no regard for those Americans’ wishes.
  • I taught Elitists from that government to allow the evils created by Stalin, Hitler, Gerbel, Mao, and even King Herod stealthily creep back into American culture. Planned Parenthood has been given billions of dollars confiscated from Americans through taxpayers to summarily destroy millions of humans before birth, while those elitists hide that Planned Parenthood ‘refunds’ to those politicians millions of those tax dollars they’ve been given, calling them ‘campaign contributions.’ Politicians waste trillions of American dollars in scheme after scheme, pork project after pork project, passing out money to friends, relatives, companies owned by campaign supporters, all the while accepting billions of dollars and ‘contributions’ from supporters which are all payback. It is ridiculously funny that through the lust for power, money, and their pride, I have (with all of these tools) them so tied to me they cannot say one thing to anyone about any of this! If they do, they’ll all go down. And when one or two start thinking about ‘talking,’ all I have to do is send one of my lieutenants to remind them of what I can do, and they all shut up…or I shut them up!

All this stuff you see politicians do today that just doesn’t seem right? I’m the source of their doing so and their justification for doing it. Things like: picking and choosing which laws to enforce, which ones to forget about, and who can get away with breaking any laws without any penalty — that’s me! Their promoting open borders and illegal immigration — that’s me too! Allowing the unfettered funding of hate groups like ANTIFA and the White Supremacists who each promote nothing but racism, hatred, and anarchy — all of it I instigated. The death of morality and decency throughout the American populace, exploding violence and murder, rape, human trafficking of all kinds, pedophilia, incest, and even abortion — that’s all me. And it’s some of my finest work!

None of any of this is possible without people in power. There are many in government — too many for me to list for you here. (I wouldn’t do that anyway. I don’t want to give myself away anymore than I already have.) But you know them all by name. I won’t even talk about them individually.

God has done an amazing job in creating the world and creating humans. I sometimes slap myself thinking ‘Why did God even create me?’ I wonder why God created evil, too. I’m not going to worry about that. I’ll just revel in that evil and continue to corrupt everyone I can. I’ve gotten really good at it and hiding it as well.  I’ll bet you never really thought much about me. See, I’ve done a pretty good job!

I’ll let you go with this one thought: people in America are not as stupid as they act. They see all of this along with all the good in the world. American people make choices about whether they are going to let me do through them what my name says I’m all about: corrupting them and leading them into the corruption of others. There are very few who actually speak up against me. Most people (like you) are NOT politicians. Those people (like you) willingly allow this all to happen.

I’m taking a chance coming forward and talking to you about this today. I’m pretty sure you could start talking about me, trying to convince others that I’m real and that you guys should do something to get rid of me. But I’m SO confident, SO sure, and SO good at what I do, I’m pretty sure those other people aren’t going to do something like that.

There is something that is certain: as long as I exist, and as long as men and women keep me around, I’m the one that is going to be in power. I’m the one that will run the show. And I KNOW all the ins and outs of human beings, and how to manipulate you all. Doing so is pretty easy — TOO EASY! And I plan to just keep right on doing what I do best: Corruption.

You could do something about me. You could talk about me to your family members, friends, relatives, and even politicians who are supposed to serve you. But you won’t do that. Why?

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. I KNOW WHAT YOU’VE DONE!

You already knew that, didn’t you? Listen to this and remember this one thing: your being quiet about ME is the reason I exist, AND the reason I’m not going anywhere!
