        Of total Missouri Republican primary voters, 58% voted Hawley, whereas of total Missouri Democrat primary voters, 82% voted McCaskill. Only 58,816 more Republicans than Democrats voted in the Missouri primary. Missouri Republicans better pull together in November. I voted Greitens in 2016 and he really let us down; consensus is AG Josh Hawley “threw Greitens under the bus”. I think that’s the one big reason the AFL-CIA won a big victory on Proposition A (defeating Missouri works in bogus referendum on Right to Work Senate Bill 19 signed into law by Greitens). Missouri politicians are a nothin’ but nothin’ but a barrel of snakes, Hawley included. Nevertheless, I disregarded the Libertarian / Republican ballot vote splitters because Hawley is the one Republican snake with best chance for unseating McCaskill. Politics is pragmatism not principles.

        We are at war with people who literally want to impeach and jail our President and kill any of his supporters who dont submit to their insanity and pure evil. I invite you to worry to no end about about defeating ALL Democrats instead of focusing on people fighting on our side. Remember in the Lord of the Rings the Dwarves, Elves and humans put aside their enmity when confronted with the Orc army that threatened them all. Democrats are the real Orcs. Please wake up and prioritize accordingly.

      Great, but with medical marijuana on the November ballot, Josh has his work cut out for him. Stem cell research coat tails was how Blondie got elected the first time.

      The more impressive results from last night was in the first congressional district. Lacey Clay had an actual challenger, and his Republican opponent is now a black man who happens to be a descendent of Chuck Berry. That is not supposed to be a vulnerable seat. We’ll see.

      Global technology, engineering and advanced manufacturing leader Arconic (NYSE: ARNC) today announced a $14 million investment in its Texarkana facility to restart previously idled equipment used for finishing rolled aluminum sheet used to make industrial products. The equipment is expected to be operational by January 2019 and the investment is expected to create 35 jobs.

        Utah’s economy is booming. There are “help wanted” signs in almost every window. Apartments and condominium are being built at record rates and fill up immediately. My sister bought two condos in the early spring and they have already gone up by $20K in price. My daughter bought a new home three years ago in a small town south of Park City. She said prices in her neighborhood have sky-rocketed to the point where she now could not afford to buy there if she wanted to purchase a home this year. Lot prices in my neighborhood go for about $250K per .25 acres, which is totally nuts. LOT prices – dirt – not including the house. It is actually alarming to see how fast things are changing.

    August 6, 2018 was a day that will live in infamy.

    The Globalist far left Social Media corporations flexed their muscles and colluded together in order to kick a dissenting voice off their social media island.

    This is chilling and a red alarm to those to value the freedom of speech and debate over issues that are so important to our lives.

    Even if you do not agree with Alex Jones, you can speak out and support him in this battle of censorship against Group Think and Tyranny.

    In 2016, the Left lost the battle on social media and Donald Trump was elected. In 2018, they do not plan on making the same mistake twice. They will shut down opposing voices that speak out against their narrative.

    This is a move of desperation, if they were winning the battle for hearts and minds they would not have gotten out the jackboot of suppression to squash conservative voices on the right.

    Tyranny plain and simple.

    Violence rises against people who do not agree with the radical left and they are chased out of restaurants and public places. MAGA hats are stolen and Trump supporters are spit upon because they dare voice a different opinion.

    The anti-fascists are the real fascists.

    First they came for the Alex Jones, and I did not speak out—      Because I was not a Info Wars listener.

    Then they came for the Conservatives on Social Media, and I did not speak out—      Because I was not a Conservative.

    Then they came for the Trump Supporters, and I did not speak out—      Because I was not a Trump supporter.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Instagram bans Tommy Robinson as social media companies purge

    UPDATE:

      The “social media” are just begging for a gigantic lawsuit, and inviting action by the FTC re: antitrust conduct. I’d bet Alex Jones has a case against the “platforms” that excluded him in concert, an action as anti-competitive as we could imagine. There may be a sufficient number of people similarly conspired against to qualify for a class action suit, perhaps that lends advantage to the plaintiffs, more knowledgeable hands could comment.

      In any case I hope Jones and other mistreated former users of “social media” do take action to stand up for themselves, and in the process hasten the demise of these anti-American parasites.

      BTW I’m tempted to call the abusive companies “antisocial media”, AFAICT there’s nothing prosocial about them, not in the slightest.

        Why should they worry? The big media companies have been doing this for YEARS. “Mainstream” political news coverage had Juan Williams ‘debating’ Billy chrystal, THAT was ‘giving both sides of the issue’.

        They are just being bolder about it, that’s all.

        And yes, they are ‘baiting’ us, and have got a win/win for themselves.

          To be sure I concur with making the election the priority. IMO the importance of the Jones event is showing the nature of the opposition to PT, the level to which they stoop to silence whomever they regard as their “enemy”. While CNN fans might cheer what the “platforms” did, the static generated by their action will not make leftists any more plausible to those “on the fence”. So I don’t see it as unmitigated “winning” for leftists, we won’t buy the BS about “tin-foil hats”, etc., that they might try to assert. And we won’t be silent about it either, why should we be?

          I dunno, it’s not mutually exclusive. I believe we can decry anti-American behavior and continue to work on electing the candidates we prefer. You might even say it goes together, to uphold the classic ethical principles of Americans and striving to elect candidates who support those very principles.

      “Sanctioned” accounts:

      Scott Horton – foreign policy researcher, commentator. He is accused of using improper language with a reporter Jonathan M. Katz.

      Daniel McAdams – Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. Guilty of retweeting Scott Horton’s post re Katz.

      Peter VanBuren – former State Dept employee, subject of the spat between Horton and Katz about an interview he did, admitting to the government lying to reporters re Iraq war.

      See also VanBuren’s article below. He discusses parallels between Muh Russia and McCarthyism, the left’s former favorite boogey man.

          I read Chiefio’s post on alternatives that I found very interesting. Not being tech literate — and not having the time to be so, I work very long hours at other kinds of projects — I would like to know more about these. I would like to know if people are/can develop these as serious alternatives. It feels like everyone has given up to Google, Microsoft, FaceBook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. Stop them. They are so, so, so powerful.

          As much as I would like to support Alex Jones, I cannot do it. A personal response, I can’t stomach egotists such as his site seems to me to exemplify. Like the blind chick – occasionally right.

          At the same time, I feel too much whining about these big businesses. Yeah, they are powerful, but take your business elsewhere or contribute to a class action suit for antitrust measures. I’m sure I just don’t know the territory, but the years of weeping and wailing is getting to me. It’s like, “conservatives” continue using the enemy, yet wail why doesn’t the government do something. I am very willing to be corrected here.

          Or from an earlier age of development, why do my parents require me to do all these chores, or to give my best effort at school, or to spend only a limited amount of time on computer games, internet, etc. You know — adolescent hatred of parents because they require some responsible behaviors from their soon-to-be-adult children (whose brains are being “revised” for their final adult version at sometime in their twenties when they suddenly appear to be a decent human being again).

          And that is real hatred in our American society of individual freedom that every parent of an adolescent must receive, process, and return in an understanding and understandable way. Returning to the present moment, constantly screaming conspiracy everywhere will not get the job done. MAGA

  17. Couldn’t vote for Josh Hawley today and still can’t. I live in MO. I dislike Claire McCaskill as much as you. But this guy with no ties to MO ends up here from Yale in 2016 and becomes State AG. He was not in the running for this election, Rep Ann Wagner was. Somehow former Sen Jack Danforth steps in and we end up with a major Hawley problem. I will not be responsible for hiring Citizen McCain 2.0. Today in the primary I asked for a dem ballot. I voted against Claire. Unless something changes I’ll be voting for her in Nov. Hawley does not have my vote. She at least tells me what she is. He is a GOPe and I’d rather not be associated with him. Hey Josh, if you see this, go ask Billy Kristol what you really think about it before I box your ears fool. Dip set. Hit F5.

He chewed out one of the prosecutors because he looked at a piece of paper, the guy said oh I was just looking at the paper, the judge said You looked down like you were disrespecting me….. then the guy wouldn’t look at him, so the judge told him to look at him, the prosecutor said he didn’t want to because he didn’t want to get yelled at again, and the judge said he could see he has tears in his eyes right now. The prosecutor said no I don’t your honor, and the judge said they look like they’re watering up……

        I mean he’s going HARD on these guys, at first I thought he was just trying to ‘keep it fair’ but it’s clear now that he just can’t stand the prosecution and thinks it’s a witch hunt.

          The prosecution has been unprepared, inept and unprofessional. Judges can’t stand that. It is a sign of disrespect to the court when you don’t have your shit together.

          The longer this goes on the clearer it is that they never expected this to go to trial. They were just using the charges to intimidate Manafort and try to get him to “sing,” as many Treepers said at the time. Manafort didn’t have anything to give them, he’s taking his chances with the jury and the prosecution is screwed.

            It’s really amazing, how our ‘worst case scenario” s about how corrupt the Mueller Investigation is, cannot be overstated. I mean no matter what ridiculousness we accuse Mueller of… IT’S ALL TRUE.

            The ham radio thing I thought was stretching it. Nope, appears it actually happened.

            He charged Manafort to squeeze him, yup, appears that’s true.

            And none of the prosecution or Mueller’s team even seems particularly intelligent. I mean they’re doing STUPID things that you’d think they’d have been better prepared for, but Nope, they are that bad.

            If Manafort walks, he’ll probably sue the crap out of the Justice Department. If that’s legal.

      If I had corporations in Ukraine, US and Cyprus, and someone wanted me — personally — to do some consulting, I could easily and legally have them contract with my Ukrainian, US, or Cypriot corporation to employ me to do that. That’s the way the law is, that’s how it’s done. If my Ukrainian corporation took the money but didn’t pay me, it’s not US income to me. That’s the way the law is, that’s how it’s done. The Ukrainian corporation can return capital to me or loan me funds and it is not taxable income in the US. That’s the way the law is, that’s how it’s done. If you dance the dances, everything is legal and above-board — but they are complicated dances and you’ll need experts.

      To assert after that fact that I should have been hired by my US Corporation to perform these consulting services is bullshit. To say I should pay US taxes on employment when I wasn’t employed by a US Corporation is bullshit. That’s not the way the rules are written — it’s changing the rules after the fact.

      I’ve been a CPA for over two decades. Structuring transactions to avoid tax is not illegal — it’s encouraged. The transaction has to have been completely executed to lie about it and commit tax fraud.

      Never understood people who watched the OJ trial but I would get sucked into this one.
      – Never an audit by the IRS – but the trial is about not paying taxes on income???
      – Gov’t complains Manafort has not paid enough tax, still no amount of $’s to be paid. Where is the spreadsheet of $$’s owed?
      – Star Witness, Gates, turns into the worst possible witness
      – CPA lies, goes against her ethical cannon, and is fired by her firm, yesterday.
      – Manafort paid the CPA firm 100K a year, if they did their job, maybe Manafort would have known Gates was embezzling from him. Manafort should sue the CPA firm.
      – Gates files fraud docs for OTHER people an WHILE he is stealing from Manafort.
      -Gates had an extramarital affair, flat in London, apt. in Vegas, still no definitive about of $$’s he stole from Manafort (where is the forensic accounting team in the decade the US gov’t had to prove this case).
      – Case involves a FARA violation for Manafort. Where is the testimony/proof that Manafort lobbied anyone in the USA? Have not heard, yet.
      – Plea deal for Gates is a nightmare for the prosecution, riddled with holes.
      – Judge is a perfect stereotype of a tough dad. No one gets away with anything.
      – Judge is annoyed because the prosecution, Mueller’s team, keeps trying to paint Manafort with shady Ukrainians (therefore, muh, Russia). In this case, if the case were really about tax avoidance, it would not matter if the money came from Bolivia, or Myanmar, source of the funds are irrelevant.

    FIRST THEY CAME FOR ALEX JONES/

    by Administrator

    I’ve never been a huge fan of Alex Jones. He always seemed a little unhinged to me. But who cares? He had the right to his free speech and was able to attract millions of followers to his website and as viewers of his videos. I disagree with far more people than I agree with, but that doesn’t mean I think they should be silenced.

    The First Amendment means something to me. It means nothing to the corporate media conglomerates supporting the agenda of the Deep State. They will use and are using their monopoly control over media outlets to silence the opposition. Alex Jones is the latest victim. They silenced HollyO.

    When will they silence TBP? I’m not dependent on Twitter, Facebook or Youtube for driving visitors to my site. They’ve punished TBP by taking away my biggest advertising revenue streams. Ad revenue is down 40% versus last year, mostly due to Amazon dumping me. Donations have only filled 15% of that gap.

    They’ve tried denial of service attacks, but TMWNN fought them off. I expect them to try and shut TBP down through some sort of legal action because they know I don’t have the resources to fight a legal battle. Time is growing short. The war has begun.

    They will do no more than what we let them do.”

        I’ve always liked him because in my opinion, I feel he’s SINCERE. I value sincerity. My favorite story about him….

        When he first started, he went to a city council meeting to complain that they were killing everybody by putting fluoride in the water. One of his friends knew he was a conspiracy nut so he told him ‘hey Alex, that’s dangerous, don’t you know those council members could have you killed for speaking out in public against them like that?” and Alex replied “I know! They’re trying to kill me with the fluoride in the drinking water!”

        The more you think about that, the more you can understand Alex’s mind. I think he’s sincere as hell. He’s trying to save the planet. I’ve got nothing but respect for him.

          And the dentist would always tell us…”Don’t swallow it! Spit it all out.”

      The only BAD SIGN I could potentially see, is that the race in Ohio was much closer than it should have been.

      HOWEVER, it was a “special election”… .which is “special”. It’s just my opinion, that November turn out will be more ‘traditional’ and the democrats won’t have as much money to spend in each race as they did tonight.

      the reason OH12 was close was because the dems could pour money into it. Supposedly though, the republicans poured even more in when you count outside money.

      Also there’s a minor, small undercurrent of the MAGA vote not showing up in that race as strong as they COULD have. A lot of people still sat at home on their ass instead of voting, and that’s a real head scratcher.

      Another ‘bad news’ that I would suppose you COULD take away from it, was it appears to me that President Trump’s endorsement didn’t really help that much. I know he said it did, but I don’t really see any evidence that it moved the needle much.

      ————————————————————————————————-

      NOW, with all that said, I’m a very optimistic person and I think we’re going to steamroll the democrats in November. I think we’ll pick up house, and senate seats and that this ‘special’ election was an outlier…. even though we still won.

              That’s fascinating in and of itself, MelH.

              I first heard of his candidacy in January 2016 and laughed. Then I read about his March 2016 rally in Chicago being cancelled because of a deranged melee. I wanted to find out what was going on. That’s how I found CTH and all the great Treepers!

              I’d read regularly about Trump during the 1980s, so knew about his dalliances, marriages and NYC property successes. So did my mother, who lived in ‘flyover country’. We visited Trump Tower together shortly after it opened. Seeing it post-election on YouTube videos, it looked as good as when we saw it 22 years earlier.

              Afterwards, living in the UK, I lost track until the mid-1990s, when they published The Art of the Deal here and broadcast British interviews with him.

              Early in the 21st century, A UK television channel showed The Apprentice. I watched two seasons in 2006 and 2007. (We subsequently got our own version with Sir Alan Sugar.)

              From the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, there was a NY-based magazine called Spy, which was a marvellous monthly masterpiece of satire, largely about Manhattan and the Hamptons. They loathed Trump, but in an amusing way. That was because of the founder/editor, Graydon Carter, a Canadian who went on to edit — and revive the fortunes of — Vanity Fair. He retired several months ago, but the anti-Trumpism, sadly, lives on.

Here are a couple of vids on this technology which has actually been available since the 1950s and it seems since then currently there are more than 30 patents on it. This is what is being used on the targets many of them ending up as shooters or car runners, using Google satellites. Frey was one of the first scientists.

    There are supposed to be anywhere from 12 to 24 satellites in orbit with solar panels charged by the sun. Google rents out its satellites to private contractors who use these audio and DEW weapons. This has to be investigated! All of us are targets whether we are aware or not. DEW can be very imperceptible but cause long term harm and President Trump/we need to work hard to stop this targeting by the Democrat machinery!

BTW, almost all satellites use solar panels to provide power. There are thousands of operational satellites in orbit right now.

      I’d have to look into using microwave for creating auditory effects, but it seems very unlikely to be viable at all and, even if the effect exists, to beam something into an individual’s head from space, is even less likely. You would need antenna dishes the size of football stadiums.

      If the government really wanted to ‘deal’ with population problem, they’d either start the Last War or get the CDC to create a new plague, something on the order of bubonic flu. Hurricanes caused by HAARP? If they had that much power available do you really think they’d allow people like that to create websites warning about the danger? Create and post videos about it? Deep State can’t even squash Alex Jones or keep details about the Insurance Policy secret.

        You don’t think FB and Instagram and Amazon targeting Alex Jones has anything to do with the Deep State? I don’t even like Alex Jones, but Big Tech is the Deep State. Eric Schmidt from Google met with the President Obama more than almost anyone else. If you don’t see the connection, I have a bridge to sell you.

        It doesn’t matter is Alex Jones is telling the truth, he was pro-Trump so he had to go. He was just an easy target because he says crazy things, so they could openly purge him. But it was because he has a large audience and is pro-Trump. Amazon didn’t mind making money off his followers until Hillary lost.

          I haven’t followed Alex Jones before but I’m guessing he started talking about top secret DEW targetting and that is the biggest no-no. 911’rs were the first to be targetted.

          Of course POTUS should have folded the commission. It was in place long enough to reveal where the cheating happened ie. the Democrat states and cities that refused to participate. Then he turned it over to the DHS which now has legal control over national elections thanks to Obama s EO. The ODNI helped with the investigation. POTUS has been sitting on the report and reccomendations for months. Some states have quietly made changes. POTUS will make the report public when he deems fit.

      Varvel: How I went from a Trump critic to a Trump supporter

      Excerpt:
      When Trump announced he was running for president, I admit that I didn’t take this millionaire, hotel magnate, reality TV show celebrity as a serious candidate. I doubted his ability to do the job. So I drew him as a clown. In fact, my cartoons were as critical of him as many of my liberal cartoonist friends.

      Then Trump started a war with the media, tagging major news outlets as “fake news.” Ahem, I’m in the media. 

      And while Trump promised to pursue conservatives policies, this conservative cartoonist doubted his sincerity. After all, it wasn’t that long ago that he was on the left.

        Glad to hear he’s come around and is a Trump supporter now.
        But he’s still lampooning Pres Trump’s appearance and isn’t portraying him in a very flattering way.

        So his begrudging approval comes through, in the overall tone of his work.

        Donald Trump was never “on the left”. As a businessman, he donated to both parties in order to position himself to get business done in communities run by thugs of both parties. If you listen to his many interviews going back 40 years, he never professed any values or policies that even slightly resembled anything left of moderate, but usually quite conservative in the sense of smaller, smarter government maintaining individual rights to real and intellectual property and rule of law.

      Russia is also reportedly building an entirely separate internet, and it won’t need to utilize the DNS system for access like the current one. Some say it’s to make sure they’re not cut off during war, some say it’s so that Russia (and the nations who opt to utilize their ‘internet’ – BRICS, probably) is not subject to ‘deplatforming’ ala Alex Jones, et al.

      From a pragmatic standpoint, that’s a sensible move – why should any nation remain prisoner to the filthy leftist SV tech cabal?

    This is an older article, but it discusses the Publisher vs Platform argument the U.S. Supreme Court thought they had settled recently. However, now that Facebook, Google and Twitter are selectively choosing which content they want to “publish” on their “platforms” the debate is ginning up again.
    IMO, they should be held as accountable as any publisher such as newspapers, network news programs, etc for libel lawsuits.
