It’s over! President Trump is done: his presidency is in tatters, NATO nation leaders laugh at the American president, American voters have lost confidence in President Trump’s ability to lead, and the nation is doomed.
That’s the message that has been presented to Americans for month after month by the American Press. While doing so non-stop since the 2016 election, they giggle with glee for Trump’s non-existent failures! The irony of all this? Americans don’t agree with them!
Likely Articles of Impeachment Content
It is not likely the House Judiciary Committee will complete as soon as this week’s proposed Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. What will those probably include?
The articles of impeachment are likely to cover two major themes — abuse of office and obstruction. But they could be divvied up into multiple articles.
An impeachment article accusing Trump of abuse of office, or abuse of power, would focus on the findings of the Ukraine investigation and his efforts to persuade the Ukrainian government to investigate Democrats as the U.S. withheld military aid. That conduct is the focus of a House Intelligence Committee report that will be presented to the Judiciary panel for consideration in a Monday hearing.
Some lawmakers have suggested that Democrats could break out “bribery” as a separate article. It would likely center on Trump withholding the aid and also withholding a White House meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in exchange for the political investigations.
Obstruction articles could be broken up into obstruction of Congress and obstruction of justice, or the two could be combined.
The administration’s repeated refusals to provide documents and testimony would serve as the basis for an article charging Trump with obstruction of Congress. If Democrats decide to draft an article on obstruction of justice, it could mention the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The Impeachment Process
If the House continues down the impeachment road, here is how it will most certainly look like:
The Judiciary Committee will present their finalized charges — “Articles” — to the full House for approval by a House vote. Each Article will be presented, debated, and determined by a House vote one at a time.
It is likely as few as three Articles to as many as five or six will be presented, considered by the House, and determined by votes whether to move forward.
At the completion of the House process, however many of those Articles are approved by the House will then be presented to the Senate for a trial.
The Senate could actually via a motion determine to not even take impeachment under consideration. That is unlikely to happen.
If/when the Senate initiates a trial, each “charge” (or Article) will be presented by an appointed prosecutor who will present evidence that will include documents and the testimony of witnesses. The President’s defense team will also counter with the cross examination of each prosecution witness presented as well as evidence. Then the defense team will also present witnesses and evidence that the prosecution will also cross examine and challenge as desired.
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over the Senate trial. He will have total control of the process of the Senate trial according to Senate rules. When trial details are completed a vote will be taken. The President would if found guilty of any charges be removed from office.
How likely is it that President Trump will be removed from office? The answer to that question depends on who you ask. Most Americans when confronted with facts of Democrats’ allegations will shake their heads in disbelief this is actually happening. Sure, many Americans disagree with the President’s demeanor, his way of speaking, his brash, confrontational communication, and even his bragging. But most Americans question those things are impeachable offenses.
But I must be honest: this is only the third time in U.S. history this has happened. And the fact the Democrats are actually pushing down this road with the tremendous across-the-board Trump accomplishments that have and are significantly impacting Americans is scary. Common sense should dictate impeachment of a president might be appropriate for criminal activity by a President or unethical actions in office that include ”bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors.” But no one has presented any evidence of any of those necessary wrongdoings by this president.
Because those facts have not been sufficient to shut the door on impeachment is giving millions of Americans pause: this really could happen!
Fear is gripping the hearts of millions! This fear is of a government that is considering overturning the votes of 63 million Americans. Their doing while ignoring not just those voters but the best economic data in the nation in decades should make all Americans afraid. The fear is that Democrats just might pull this off.
The next two weeks will show the World exactly where the U.S. is in support of the Constitution, the American people, and the Rule of Law. If Democrats succeed in this, it will be the death-nail in history’s greatest country ever.
Conservatives for months have been waiting breathlessly for the release of the Horowitz report on the sources and the basis for the inception of the FBI investigation into collusion with the Russians by the Donald Trump campaign. Horowitz is the Inspector General of the Department of Justice. His report was expected for release in the late Spring of 2019. It will be released to the public Monday, December 9.
Supposedly the delays are the result of witnesses who, for whatever reasons, did not cooperate with Horowitz regarding testimony early in the investigation but decided to come forward late. Their doing so is rumored to be because of fear of Federal Prosecutor John Durham, who was tasked by Attorney General William Barr to investigate all the 2016-2017 matters in the election. These matters include the Clinton Foundation, FISA warrant applications and all details about the warrants, and who the players were in the surveillance of members of the Trump campaign by the FBI. Durham, unlike Horowitz, has subpoena power. He can convene grand juries (and probably already has), interrogate witnesses, and has wide latitude to obtain evidence of wrongdoing. It is expected many who are included in the Horowitz report are subjects of Durham’s investigation. They are choosing to cooperate with Horowitz so as to not make themselves Durham’s targets for their lack of cooperation.
Just a week after Justice Department Inspector General Horowitz’s report on the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign in 2016 was published, The Washington Post released another supposed leak.
Attorney General Barr apparently disagrees with the Inspector General that Obama officials and agents were justified in spying on Trump’s campaign and Trump’s transition team, according to the Washington Post report.
Barr may include a formal letter in the report or may publicly state his concern.
According to leaks, behind the scenes at the Department of Justice, there appears to be a disagreement over one of Horowitz’s central conclusions about the origins of the Russian investigation. The conflict could be the beginning of a significant rift within the federal agency over the controversial issue of investigating a presidential campaign.
Barr has not been influenced by Horowitz’s “logic” to conclude that the FBI had a sufficient basis to open their investigation on July 31, 2016. Horowitz will testify in the Senate on Dec. 11 about the findings of the investigation into possible FISA abuses.
For more than a year and a half, Horowitz has been investigating an alleged abuse of FISA by the Obama Justice Department and FBI during the 2016 elections against President Trump.
But the report is more than just a FISA abuse; it is a whole conspiracy campaign against President Trump orchestrated by the Democratic Party in cooperation with U.S. intelligence agencies. The IG report will also likely result in the declassification of documents requested by high-ranking Republican legislators for several years.
Republicans and President Trump had argued that the FBI’s alleged FISA abuses, which occurred when the federal agency sought criminal links between Trump’s campaign team and Russia during the 2016 campaign, were politically motivated.
In fact, in recent months, several documents have been uncovered that corroborate those claims, for example:
Text messages obtained by Fox News showed that before the FISA application was approved, FBI agents were dealing with a senior Justice Department official who had “continued concerns” about “possible bias” of a source pivotal to the application.
The 2016 messages, sent between Lisa Page and then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, also revealed that members of the intelligence bureau circulated at least two ‘anti-Trump’ blog articles.
These text messages were based in part on information from former British spy Christopher Steele who cited Page’s alleged links to Russia. The FBI assured the FISA court that the media independently corroborated Steele’s claims, but it later came to light that Steele had previously leaked those data to the press.
The FBI did not clearly state that Steele worked for a company hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Much of the Steele dossier has been discredited or unfounded. In fact, the extensive report by special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign members and the Kremlin.
Reports are beginning to float to the surface that Barr is basically saying that Horowitz, confined as he is to examine issues related to the DOJ, doesn’t have the information he and Durham have uncovered as to what other agencies (such as the CIA) and entities may have been doing during the investigation.
He doesn’t have all the information, Barr says, so his conclusion might be appropriate within the limited parameters he had to work with, but there’s more to the story.
It’s not a slam against Horowitz, nor is it a slam against the report. Only an acknowledgment — and a necessary one, given the spin-doctoring that’s been happening in the lead up to the report’s release next week — that Horowitz was limited in the scope of his investigation.
This is actually how governing is supposed to work, with the players showing respect for each other’s roles and taking care not to step on toes. The Obama administration had a different view of how the intelligence agencies were supposed to function, and Barr seems to be thinking back to a time before super-sharing between agencies was a thing.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham warned that if you believe Horowitz and Barr are at odds with each other in their upcoming reports, you’re buying into the spin.
“Be wary of the Washington Post and the New York Times reporting on what is coming up with Horowitz. They have been trying overtime to spin this thing to diminish its effect, to downplay it,” Graham said Monday.
“I can tell you without any hesitation Attorney General Barr has every confidence in the world in Mr. Horowitz,” Graham added. “He believes that he has done a good job, a professional job, and he appreciates the work and the effort he has put into disclosing abuse at the Department of Justice.”
Uncharacteristically, Radio Host Rush Limbaugh has been skeptical of any blockbuster revelations of DOJ and FBI wrongdoing in the Russia collusion probe being included in the Horowitz report. Conservatives have been nervously anticipating the story, hoping that there will be certain damning information added that will result in criminal referrals to the DOJ for the prosecution of those who allegedly illegally created and maintained the allegations of Russia collusion by the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Many Conservatives will be sorely disappointed if no action is recommended by Horowitz.
On the other hand, Federal Attorney John Durham has all the power necessary to do exactly what Horowitz cannot do: grand juries, subpoena witnesses, issue indictments, even conduct arrests. And Durham made an announcement recently that his investigation is now considered a criminal investigation as compared to that of Horowitz.
All this means, Folks, is that we are set for waiting again for any definitive information about alleged wrongdoing by those in the Obama White House, the FBI under James Comey, the Department of Justice under Attorneys General Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder, and by management at several of the intelligence community departments: specifically John Brennan and James Clapper.
Yes, this is a convoluted and intricate period of digging for the truth. What bothers many Americans is that no one seems to know for certain who are the “guys wearing the black hats” and who “wear the white hats.” Are the investigators in all this clean and objective, or are they “in the tank” for the perpetrators? In other words, millions have queasy stomachs when thinking through it all.
It’s sad to know that any people who work for the American people in government are evil. But there’s one thing that is indisputable: there are plenty of people in our government who are evil. Corruption runs amuck. We must discover who they are, identify their specific wrongdoing, and hold them accountable.
There is quite a bit of hypocrisy festering in the rush by Democrats to send President Trump the “big” Christmas present: Impeachment. Democrat Party leaders are foaming at the mouth about what would certainly be theirChristmas gift: Trump’s D.C. departure. No American can truthfully question Dems disdain for the President, no matter what good has happened during his presidency as direct results of HIS policies — and there are many.
Who are the angriest, most voracious, and hate-filled of those Democrats? Nancy Pelosi, Jerrold Nadler, Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, and others in Democrat leadership. They were all involved in Bill Clinton’s 1998 impeachment, all were unbelievably vocal, and all expressed very specific ideas about impeachment. Surprisingly, though, their ‘98 views are significantly different from their ‘19 views. That in itself is not surprising. What IS surprising is they seem to either forget or not care that there are recordings in abundance — both in audio and video — that document their flip-flops on not just impeachment of two different individuals, but on the impeachment process itself.
Here are the video and audio segments of those leaders sharing their varying views. We’ll leave the conclusions to the hypocrisy they each reveal when they addressed Bill Clinton impeachment in 1998 and impeachment of Donald Trump in 2019.
For reasoning and reasonable Americans, it is unconscionable that ANY activity on Capitol Hill (or anywhere in Washington D.C.) is initiated and action taken unless it happens for one and only one purpose: the Peoples’ business. Americans are not blind to the partisanship and purely political purposes of the 2019 impeachment activities initiated solely by Democrats.
Is it not stupid for any elected government official to stand and decry the evils of this or any President while all around the nation, far more great things than even Republicans expected in a Trump presidency play out every day? Most Americans find it difficult to even tiptoe past all that to walk down “Impeachment Row.” And with Thursday’s surprising economic numbers that reveal unemployment for Americans at a 50-year low in part due to 260,000 new jobs during the previous month, Americans’ jaws dropped and they shook their heads. Why? Americans do not understand how Congress could even consider impeachment now — not just because of wonderful economic news, but primarily because not a single Democrat witness who each was supposed to be qualified to factually confirm impeachable wrongdoing of Donald Trump when asked could even name one impeachable act on the part of the President!
Yet, according to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Monday, December 9, “evidence” will be presented to the House Judiciary Committee that will initiate votes in the House on several Articles of Impeachment that “will” justify the Senate trying President Trump, convicting him, and removing him from office.
On another day, we will example “Abuse of Power,” one of the allegations against the President Democrats are now claiming. The common denominator in all this: Adam Schiff. In that famous cartoon, Wiley Coyote spent his entire life trying to catch the Roadrunner but just could never get the job done. “Schiff Coyote” is pretty much daily duplicating his namesake’s efforts. But Mr. “Coyote” is chasing “Trump-runner.”
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.”
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.
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?
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.
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.
We are about to share a story with you that should be front page on every legitimate newspaper and lead story on every television news show in the nation. It may come as no surprise to you that you didn’t see it in news of any kind anywhere.
I’ve had enough of giving what we previously referred to as “Mainstream Media” any faith, any hint of professionalism or assumption of integrity in reporting. There is none. Hereafter, TruthNewsNetwork will apply to the group of all those in the media who hold as their default news basis all things “anti-Trump” a single name that, when used all will know to which we are referencing. That name: “Lame-Stream Media.”
Today’s news includes multiple revelations about political corruption ignored by those in the government Deep State and, of course, the Lame-Stream Media. It’s current news, applicable to everything we are seeing and hearing from Washington D.C., and ignored. If the bad players in this were Republican or some other brand of Conservative, it would be top of the news every day through the 2020 election. But it’s not about Republicans or other conservatives. It’s about Democrats — those from the last administration and some who carried over into the Trump Administration.
Remember: we nor any other legitimate news source has any right to discuss even a hint of corruption that includes the name “Biden” and “Ukraine.” Doing so is strictly taboo.
I guess we are “taboo.”
This story begins with the recent reports of Ukraine trips that included numerous meetings with Ukraine political leaders and Rudy Giuliani. The Lame-Stream media have perpetuated non-stop stories to somehow link Giuliani with bribery of Ukraine government officials by the Trump Administration. A Democrat watchdog group trying to quietly vindicate Vice President Joe Biden for allegations of corruption on his part and that of his son Hunter in Ukraine filed a Freedom Of Information Act request hoping to find evidence that exonerated the pair while implicating Giuliani. It backfired spectacularly.
Their Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request resulted in the U.S. State Department releasing detailed accusations of corruption against the Bidens – based on interviews with former Ukrainian officials who were in charge of the investigations.
Responding to a FOIA lawsuit from the group American Oversight, the State Department just released almost 100 pages of records detailing efforts by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate corruption, which includes contacts with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) earlier this year.
While American Oversight’s ‘gotcha’ is that Giuliani had “multiple contacts” with Mike Pompeo and others while investigating Ukraine’s corruption, they completely ignore interview notes containing detailed allegations by former Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
That’s who Joe Biden had fired, as well as his successor, prosecutor general Yuriy Lutsenko – who “believes Mr. Viktor Shokin, the former Prosecutor General, is honest.”
To understand who Viktor Shokin is, on a January 23, 2019 phone call between Shokin and Giuliani, Igor Fruman, Lev Parnas, and George Boyle, Shokin said:
“He was appointed to the position of General Prosecutor of Ukraine from 2015 until April of 2016 when he was removed at the request of Mr. Joseph Biden, the Vice President of the United States.”
“He [Shokin] became involved in a case against Mr. Mykola Zlochevsky, the former Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. The case was opened as a result of Mr. Zlochevsky giving himself company permits to drill for gas and oil in Ukraine. Mr. Zlochevsky is also the owner of Burisma Holdings.”
“Mr. Shokin stated that there are documents that list five criminal cases in which Mr. Zlochevesky is listed, with the leading example being for issuing illegal gas exploration permits. The following complaints are in the criminal case:
Zlochevsky was laundering money.
Obtained assets by corrupt acts of bribery.
Zlochevsky removed approximately $23 million US dollars out of Ukraine without permission.
While seated as the Minister, he approved two new entities to receive permits for gas exploration.
Zlochevsky was the owner of two secret companies that were part of Burisma Holdings and gave those companies permits, which made it possible for him to profit while he was the sitting minister.
“Mr. Shokin further stated that there were several Burisma board appointments that were made in 2014 as follows:
Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joseph Biden.
Joseph Blade, a former CIA employee, assigned to Anti-Terrorist Unit.
Alesksander Kwasnieski, former President of Poland.
Devon Archer, roommate to the Christopher Heinz the stepson of Mr. John Kerry, United States Secretary of State
“Mr. Shokin stated that these appointments were made by Mr. Zlochevsky in order to protect himself.”
Shokin then details how in July 2015:
“US Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which, according to Mr. Shokin, that implied to do nothing. On or about September 2015, Mr. Pyatt gave a speech in Odessa where he stated that the cases were not investigated correctly, and that Mr. Shokin may be corrupt.”
“Mr. Shokin further stated that on February of 2016 warrants were placed on the accounts of multiple people in Ukraine. There were requests for information on Hunter Biden to which nothing was received.”
“It is believed that Hunter Biden receives a salary, commission plus one million dollars.”
“President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko [who Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees] told Mr. Shokin not to investigate Burisma as it was not in the interest of Joe and/or Hunter Biden.
Mr. Shokin was called into Mr. Poroshenko’s office and told that the investigation into Burisma and the Managing Director where Hunter Biden is on the board, has caused Joe Biden to hold up $1 billion dollars in U.S. aid to Ukraine.
“Mr. Shokin stated that on or around April of 2016, Mr. Petro Poroshenko called him and told him he had to be fired as the aid to the Ukraine was being withheld by Joe Biden.
Mr. Biden told Mr. Poroshenko that he had evidence that Mr. Shokin was corrupt and needed to be fired. Mr. Shokin was dismissed in April of 2016 and the U.S. aid was delivered within 1 ½ months.”
“On a different point, Mr. Shokin believes the current Ambassador Marie L. Yovanovitch denied his visa to travel to the U.S.Mr. Shokin stated that she is close to Mr. Biden.
Mr. Shokin also stated that there were leaks by a person named Reshenko of the Ukrainian State Secret Service about the Manafort Black Book. Mr. Shokin stated that there is possible deceit in the Manafort Black Book.”
Yuriy Lutsenko took Shokin’s interview one step further in a January 25 phone interview with Giuliani and associates – describing how Ukraine has two secretive units which are protected by a US Ambassador.
“Mr. Lutsenko went on to explain that there is a unit called Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAP) which has under its purview National Anticorruption Bureau Ukraine (NABU) which investigates corruption cases that involved public figures from Mayors upward. He stated that the current U.S. Ambassador protects SAP and NABU,” adding “His office has absolutely no control over SAP or NABU and can’t even ask what they are working on however they fall under his ‘control.‘”
Of note, NABU was established in October 2014 “by Mr. George Kent who was the Deputy Chief to the Mission in Ukraine.”
Lutsenko went on to say that he began looking at the same case Mr. Shokin was looking at (mentioned above) and he believes Hunter Biden receives millions of dollars in compensation from Burisma. He produced a document from Latvia that showed several million dollars that were distributed out of Burisma’s account. The record showed two (2) companies and four (4) individuals receiving approximately $16 million dollars in disbursements as follows:
Companies: Wirelogic Technology and Digitex
Individuals: Alexsander Kwasnewski Alan Apter
Devon Archer — Amount Unknown
Hunter Biden — Amount Unknown
“Mr. Lutsenko stated that there was also a payment of $900,000 to Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC for consulting fees. Hunter Biden is a partner in Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, along with Devon Archer, and the dates of this transaction are approximately anywhere from January to December 2015. According to Mr. Lutsenko the $900,000 invoice was for services rendered for lobbying by Joe Biden.”
I have never read a better spy novel. It actually could be a segment in the new season just released of “Jack Ryan.” If it wasn’t such a tragic inside look at gross corruption in a presidential administration, it might actually be a humorous example of someone getting caught with a hand in the cookie jar.
What makes this better than a novel is that this account includes the names of all those caught-up in the acts of corruption, dates of meetings, discussions, and even dates money changed hands.
Can the Lame-Stream Media actually continue to ignore this evidence of possible corruption acts committed by the second most powerful man in the World while serving as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. The fact that Obama’s VP was running the Ukraine corruption investigations on behalf of the U.S. pales when put in context of the financial windfalls for Hunter Biden who had no knowledge or expertise that put him in the Ukraine natural gas business where he made tens of millions of dollars, primarily for having the last name “Biden.”
One insignificant bit of information came from this FOIA release: Hunter Biden is not the only son of prominent U.S. political persons. The sons of former Secretary of State John Kerry, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son, and even the son of current Senator Mitt Romney were all up to their eyeballs in Ukraine’s Petro-chemical industry. None of these had any experience in natural gas — certainly not sufficient to garner tens of millions of dollars in compensation.
Corruption. Quid Pro Quo. Extortion. Bribery. Ironically, those are the same words and terms being thrown at media viewers and readers by Democrats and the Lame-Stream media about President Trump and his administration. The old saying is to “accuse your opponent of that which you are guilty.”
Please do not think that our frequent mentioning of media corruption means we are conspiracy nuts. Why do we have so many media stories? The U.S. media has become the universal “go-to” source for information, especially information regarding the U.S. government. And with Donald Trump in the White House (who is regarded as probably the most controversial POTUS in at least a generation), there is plenty of Trump news on a daily basis.
Certainly that substantively should not be bad news at all. In fact, media sources should be delighted at the constant stream of Trump news. Why? It gives their viewers, listeners, and readers reason to spend more time, listen and watch more often and longer to news stories which interpret into ratings and circulation. Ratings and circulation turn into advertising dollars. And those evil media capitalists like gross revenue!
I strongly believe that those in the media purposely react as they do to the President’s verbal assaults on the lack of accuracy in much of their reporting to create stories about themselves to perpetuate the attention of their followers — for money! That certainly makes sense. With social media, the internet, satellite radio and television instant news programming, conventional news sources have suffered horrible financial losses over the last decade plus. A Trump White House has made them all more relevant and therefore more financially viable.
Enter “Fake News”
Media outlets rail frantically against the term assigned to them by President Trump: “Fake News.” While the President has made it abundantly clear again and again he is NOT speaking of all news from all news sources, it seems that all news sources stay on defense pointing their retaliation attacks at the President for the term.
Americans are not caught in that frenzied war of words between the media and POTUS. And the media understand that. Do you remember the Denzel Washington 1:00 minute video we presented several days ago when speaking to the media?
This Media functions totally on getting to print or on-air first, often at the expense of the truth. Who in good conscience can even claim news today is NOT biased, politically driven, and prospectively “in the tank” for specific purposes?
Media Lies: Which Story is Truthful?
Do you get the correlation of “Fake News” and Media disdain for the integrity of Americans? Do those in Media think Americans have no memory, no ability to search the internet? Do they think Americans don’t think about checking out a story on YouTube? Or do they just not care?
One thing is certain: today’s Mainstream Media cannot be trusted.
It’s a shame that Americans today that desire honesty, truthfulness, and facts in the news of the World can no longer trust the major media outlets for any of the above.
What’s ahead? Maybe, just maybe Americans have awakened in this horror thrust upon our nation with the Mueller Investigation, “Ukraine-Gate,” the faux House Impeachment Inquiry, and whatever is next in their incessant attacks on President Trump. Maybe now that the truth of the dishonesty of media (it’s odd to use that description of our media, isn’t it?) has demonstrably been exposed the nation will begin to question what is seen and heard and demand facts: not opinions or editorial comments or political narrative or “he said, she said.” Maybe Americans will begin to make the free market of ideas work just like the free market of trade and economics have for centuries. Maybe Americans will embrace the system of “supply and demand” in the news just as happens in the Service Industry, Retail, and international trade. In those, the products and services that are considered by consumers to be the fairest in price and delivery and substance are demanded before competitors’ similar products and services that are not as good or better when compared. That’s what Americans MUST demand in news.
Unless and until consumers send that type of message to today’s media of all kinds, they will continue to shovel the partisanship ideological “news” down our throats and tell us that if we do not accept what they give to us, we’re stupid.
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)
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.
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.
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.
“The Walls are closing in,” “We’re at a tipping point,” and “It’s the beginning of the end!” These are the incessant cries from the Leftist Mainstream media in America. And these are not new warnings or new allegations. These began even before the day of President Trump’s inauguration.
So what is this all about? Corruption in the Media.
In our series entitled “Corruption U.S. Government Style,” we promised to give you six certain pieces of proof of existing corruption in the U.S. government. We gave you five, but told you we would give you the sixth “in a few days.” We did tell you the sixth would come from the formerly “unofficial” branch of the government that has been made official by the Democrat Party: the Mainstream Media. One might argue regarding the term “official.” I would agree there has been no formal appointment by the DNC of their media sycophants as part of their party, let alone, no Congressional appointment for them. But what cannot be disputed is the daily precise coordination between Democrats and the Media in messaging. It seems that every network and newspaper that are known for being “Anti-Trump” carry and broadcast the same canned headlines and stories as each other during the same Newsday. It is so common it would be disingenuous for anyone to argue that coordination does not happen. If you are one of those Americans who live in a world void of television news, or if you are one who believes the claims of independence in news and truthfulness of those who present it to us, let’s try to bring you back to Planet Earth!
TruthNewsNetwork could spend hours of your day showing and playing for you actual date and time-stamped examples of these same things happening not just during the Impeachment Inquiry, but since the 2016 election campaign. There exists volumes of examples that confirm what many formerly claimed was nothing more than a conspiracy. It’s real and…
American Mainstream News IS coordinated!
Who’s In Charge?
Naming a person, a group, or an organization as the “Boss” of these coordinated attacks on President Trump would be speculative. I’m reasonably confident I know where it originates, but I refuse to speculate. On this subject, I’ll be just like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) regarding the whistleblower’s identity: “We must protect the guilty so lies can sacrifice the innocent!” (Of course my speculation there was not real and was emotional: please forgive me.)
It is much easier to determine who is NOT in charge. All of these Trump allegations target a sitting president that was elected by 63 million Americans. That process was conducted legally, fairly, and its results are indisputable. Those results were based not on emotion or opinion, but on the elements of presidential choice alone: an election. That process was implemented by a group of intelligent people who set out to do so with one objective in mind: to craft a government structured entirely to operate at the behest of Americans — ALL Americans. No American has ever been more important than their neighbors or other family members. And any variations of that one fundamental are attacks against the foundation blocks that constitute the United States of America. Those variations are nothing more than the opinions of people who are driven by “self-agendas.” And “Self-agendas” are NOT Constitutionally protected.
It doesn’t matter who is in charge and who — if anyone — is organizing a “messaging process, what matters is that the Media have let Americans down.
In third-world and totalitarian countries, news organizations controlled by the State have had their news justifiably labeled as “Propaganda.” Propaganda is the State’s version of the truth. But it certainly is not. In each such situation, the Media has become a combined messaging entity controlled by the latest messaging entity in each country. And, sadly, it’s true in the U.S. today just like in those third-world countries we referenced.
The Media have:
become a propaganda machine for the Left;
become a clear and ever-present bias purveyors against all things conservative;
A source that is pushing narratives that are ripping this country apart;
A reference to promote racism and bigotry where there is NO evidence of such behavior;
A source of misinformation and outright LIES without vetting sources or fact-checking stories.
In essence, they’ve stopped telling Americans the truth.
The Media Is Failing At Its Job
They’re supposed to be the 4th Estate, the “checks and balance” for the American people to war against the government growing too comfortable in their inevitable shift towards tyranny. It’s the media’s job to STOP that shift—or at least slow it down—and they’re not doing that.
Trump has called them the “enemy of the people,” and the fact that they’ve chosen sides and refused to do their actual job goes a long way in proving him to be 100% correct. And, unfortunately for them, Americans are FINALLY starting to notice.
A recent Rasmussen poll indicates that the vast majority of American voters (including 69% of independents) are angrier at the media than they are at either President Donald Trump or his political opponents.
61% of Americans expressed anger at the media (up from 53% last year) while voters’ anger at the press is also higher than their anger at either President Donald Trump (53%) or his political opponents (49%) and far more Republicans (83%) than Democrats (33%) say they’re angry at the media.
More than two-thirds (69%) of unaffiliated voters say they’re angry at the media.
Republicans being angry at the disproportionate bias makes sense. The treatment of the president and all things from the Right is horrendous. The most prominent news outlets in the country all lean to the Left. And the one company that is supposedly in Trump’s corner – Fox News – is only 47% favorable towards the President, while 53% of its reports are negative. So, if anything, Fox News is CLOSER to being fair and balanced towards the president.
It is fair to note that although FOX News is not harmful in their overall reporting of the President, that is NOT Pro-Trump.
So what is news supposed to read like, look like, and sound like?
Real News Defined
“News is information about current events. This may be provided through many different media: word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, electronic communication, or through the testimony of observers and witnesses to events. Common topics for news reports include war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, fashion, and entertainment, as well as athletic events, quirky, or unusual events. Government proclamations concerning royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health, and criminals have been dubbed news since ancient times. Humans exhibit a nearly universal desire to learn and share news, which they satisfy by talking to each other and sharing information. Technological and social developments, often driven by government communication and espionage networks, have increased the speed with which news can spread, as well as influenced its content.”
This definition originates from that bastion of news independence, journalistic integrity, truth, and honesty: Wikipedia. If one performs an internet search to find actual descriptions of News, its purposes, and its abuses, you’ll find that news has never been without bias and personal opinion.If anyone says to youthat “their” news IS 100% truthful, without prejudice, and without political or personal perspective, run away as fast as you can! Why is that? Because we are all people, all human, and all embodied with a brain with which to observe, consume, process and spew to others the consensus of what our minds have prepared from all those elements we have absorbed from outside sources woven into our minds.
We in no way are trying to excuse and or all those in the news media who practice untruthful production and dissemination of news regularly. Most of those abandoned the fundamentals of real journalism long ago. Journalism 101 teaches that regarding news, reporting should contain these elements: “Who,What, When, Where.” Stories passed along to news audiences are to include those elements and nothing more. But there is a problem with doing just that.
Humans investigate, compile evidence with which stories that chronicle those investigation findings are written, someone else may give those stories in a newspaper, television news report, radio news broadcast, or even from a stage. And in each such case, seldom if ever are those details given in a manner held to that “Who, What, When, and Where” template. Personal opinion and personal or business agendas most often color the “news” that is transmitted.
It’s that personal opinion that has become both the opiate and the thunderbolt for those who receive news. News organizations know that and have created an environment in which they can feed the hunger — a specific drug a consumer looks for — to anyone and everyone to keep them committed to that news source for that type of news about thattype of subject.
Alas, Truth of stories given to the public is no longer mandatory. What IS compulsory is the inclusion of the personal opinion of the one reporting to not indoctrinate the viewer or listener, but to “persuade” that person toward a particular conclusion that is seldom based on fact.
We’ll close today’s story with a Summary note from actor Denzel Washington. He explains succinctly what has been and is still happening in the news industry. Without saying it, Denzel is portraying the evil of today‘s Mainstream Media and the horrors it is spewing on us all.
We’ve said this many times before but it bears repeating: if we choose to NOT awaken to the plethora of untruthful information flooding our lives and the lives of those around us, we deserve the results we receive from the absorption of it all. What are those results?
We form opinions based on information we digest no matter if true or not. We share those with others who then create their own ideas to share with others. To be blunt: the Media are being allowed by Americans to paint a new picture of our World each day that has had the truth excised before its dissemination, replaced with opinion and specific narratives the reporting entity or individuals want us to consider as Truth.
I receive multiple phone calls each day (and love receiving them) from friends and associates to get my opinion of the day’s Impeachment “Schiff-Shizzle,” otherwise known as the “Impeachment Inquiry.” Yesterday (Thursday) was no different. I’m sure you probably shook your head trying to ferret out the truth from the news stories you heard about yesterday’s hearing and applicable testimony. Depending on which network or networks to which you listened or watched, you could possibly be convinced the President is done or convinced that Congress will propose a bill to extend his presidency for ten more years!
In other words, this “inquiry” as it has been termed has resulted each day in one absolute and final conclusion by all: “Inconclusive!”
Of course, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, and CBS news reports confirm that he’s done. FOX — who stands alone as the conservative network regarding political reports — is not so certain the President will be impeached.
We’ll keep this conversation brief today. Why? Because there was nothing new yesterday!I doubt anyone’s mind was changed who looked into the hearings. One thing is certain: this nation is more polarized than it has been along political lines during my lifetime.
I will remind all here, any President can be impeached for jaywalking in downtown D.C. Impeachment is NOT regulated by the Rule of Law. Criminal and civil law procedures are NOT necessary elements in impeachment. And the “Schiff-Shizzle” certainly has no restrictions for any production of evidence, factual testimony, and certainly no fairness in the process of testimony. But one thing IS certain and IS required, not by court rules but by the U.S. Constitution: a president can be impeached for “Treason, Bribery, or High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
To that end, one would think these hearings would ALL center around the investigation and discovery of these types of wrongdoing by President Trump. Have they?
I’ll answer that question myself. Through approximately 100 hours of House Oversight Committee face-to-face hearings, testimony and cross-examination, and through 3.5 years of unlimited investigation by Robert Mueller and several dozen attorneys who had unrestricted access to whatever evidence through documents and/or testimony, I’ve not heard of any evidence of President Trump being factually guilty of any of those Constitutional required elements of impeachment.
In closing to illustrate how ludicrous the “Schiff-Shizzle” has been in this regard, take a peek at this short segment of testimony and questions with answers:
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) followed the Constitution in her questioning and Ambassador Volker and Mr. Kennedy of the State Department answered the only questions applicable to an Impeachment Inquiry: no Treason, no Bribery, no High Crimes or Misdemeanors, no Quid Pro Quo.
