    See the FBI’s star fall from the sky
    Every dream it ever spun was a lie
    Here’s the one bitter lesson of the FBI’s history
    It’s soul should no longer remain a mystery
    So many stories to rearrange
    What reality is reveling becomes ever more strange
    And it has so many false faces
    Any truth left in it erases
    With the avalanche of all those lies
    Dancing in its evermore Gestapo eyes!

    It *is* interesting that these two things happened on the same day. Pro- Salvini Rally in Rome – 80K Italians show up to support the Populist Italian leader – and anti-Macron Protests/riots across France.

          if he would address that head-on and say “Non” I think he might find that would be appreciated

                Thank you, sunnydaze, for sharing this article and to others contributing likewise.

                Is the American Left watching the movement, the awakening in EU countries? We can probably safely say the movement is far stronger than lyin’ jackals in our media will report.

                Is the American Left, whether the haughty about to march on the House of Representatives, the purveyors of Fake News, the lost souls in Hollywood and the willfully blind and ignorant watching?

                Climate change antics that drain pockets and other high taxation are overwhelmingly being rejected around the world. Mass invasion of the EU’s once-sovereign countries isn’t just allowed, but gleefully facilitated by their governments. Their children are second class citizens in classrooms parents fund, in favor of refugees. It’s not just gun ownership that has been stripped from their rights, in London at least, their Muslim mayor wants them further defenseless by outlawing the kitchen knife. Meanwhile, across the EU, aliens intensify fear of robbery, rape and murder like never before. Glorious, historic churches and cathedrals across the EU are quietly becoming mosques.

                The people of France, Italy and other nations are saying ‘Enough!’. Some are lucky to have leaders such as those in Poland and Austria that stand with the people.

                Are Americans listening? Are the wishy washy, weak-kneed Trump supporters listening? Are the holier-than-thou Never Trumper’s that continue to plot the demise of our America First movement listening?

                Yes, they are watching and listening. That’s why massive new gun restriction proposals will be rolled out in January. David Hogg will be on Capitol Hill frequently; CNN’s little f-bomb dropping favorite son will get lots of air time.

                Yes, they’re watching and listening, that’s why every effort will be undertaken to squash our uprising, of our MAGA agenda, starting with unprecedented measures to remove our President. They believe if our leader no longer has power then we no longer have power. Hmmm, maybe they aren’t paying attention so much, after all…..

                  Interesting comment. However, I don’t believe there are any “wishy-washy, weak-kneed Trump supporters.” What we have instead are people like that claiming to have been Trump supporters, in order to flood social media with FUD and psyops.

                  Being a Trump supporter is not now and has not ever been the easy choice, and does not lend itself to weak knees.

                  It also does not lend itself to giving up, or, in the (paraphrased) words of Robert A. Heinlein, “bolting at the sound of a nervous cough.”

    Behold! On the one side will be the completely destroyed FBI, on the other the fierce and righteous protectors of America.

    I, or rather the Lord, beseech you as Christ’s heralds to publish this everywhere and to persuade all people of whatever rank, foot-soldiers and knights, poor and rich, to carry aid promptly to the Whistle Blowers and to destroy that vile FBI from the land and homes of our friends. I say this to those who are present, it is meant also for those who are absent. Moreover, Christ commands it.

    As 2018 wanes its rapdily becoming apparent we’re degenerating into an ” US vs Them ” situation . While at least some of the “rank and file ” throughout the bureaucracy and particularly its LE bureaus may still honor their oath and our constitution its readily apparent the leadership of most are intent upon exerting their supremacy over the American public . Theirs is no longer a ” soft coup ” but one driven by the full weight of the federal government heedless of our laws and constitutionally-protected rights. Everyone, and anyone in possession of data, testimony and evidence threatening the Deep State is at risk. As are those with public following in any media or forum being critical of any of the self-declared elites .

        Joe,
        That’s right on.

        The yellow jackets deal with oppression, unresponsiveness, and confiscation with street defiance and pavers.

        We face the same government obstinance in the US. Our government uses its agencies to divide us, when they are selectively enforcing laws against us, but not their ideological friends.

        They buy their friends, such as illegal invaders, off with our tax revenues to vote against us. (Just one example.) They use the bought votes to confiscate our wealth, and our children’s and grandchildren’s future prosperity.

        When the time comes for restoration of rights, if this POTUS is unable to cause the redress of our grievances, we don’t need to respond with cobblestones.

        We bide our time, waiting and coldly watching the pernicious ones.

                🤔

                YOUNG ONE: “Master, does success go to the clever one, or to the lucky one?”

                MERLYN: “Success is sometimes discovered by the clever one, and occasionally by the lucky one, but it is most often laid hold of by the determined one.”

                YOUNG ONE: “Will you teach me to be determined?”

                MERLYN: “Determination is dangerous… relentless… remorseless… and inescapable. It returns to its master with treasure between its teeth.”

                YOUNG ONE: “Is Determination a dog? Shall I summon it with a whistle?”

                MERLYN: “The whistle is a four-note tune that comes at a high price.”

                YOUNG ONE: “Teach me the notes. I will pay.”

                MERLYN: “Everyone wants to be a beast, until it’s time to do what real beasts do.”

                YOUNG ONE: “Teach me the notes.”

                MERLYN: “As you wish.”

                This is what the old wizard taught me:
                NOTE ONE: Count the cost.
                MERLYN: “Consider everything that might go wrong. Is your goal worth enough that you would endure all this discomfort and pain? If the answer is yes, then make peace with those possibilities and you will be bulletproof. No matter what happens, you will not panic. You will have already been there in your mind.”

                NOTE TWO: Throw your cap over the wall.
                MERLYN: “A group of boys walk a pathway next to a high stone wall that surrounds the estate of a nobleman. The older boys challenge each other to climb the wall, but none of them can do it. The youngest boy then takes off his cap and tosses it over the wall. Confused, the other boys watch as he quickly climbs the wall. Upon his return, he looks at them and says, ‘I was not going home without that cap.’”

                NOTE THREE: Employ Exponential Little Bits.
                MERLYN: “Ask yourself at every meal, ‘What difference have I made today?’ Do not let your head touch your pillow until you have taken an action that moves you a Little Bit closer to your goal, no matter how tiny that action might be. Exponential Little Bits are relentless activities that compound to make a miracle. When daily progress meets with progress, it doesn’t add, it multiplies.”

                NOTE FOUR: Be an observer, a simple witness to what happens.
                MERLYN: “You are responsible for your actions, not for the outcome. To be effective, you must be objective. Become a tool in the hand of the goal itself. Eliminate your ego. Do not seek recognition. It isn’t about you. It’s about the thing you’re doing. Are you willing to pay this price? Can you whistle the notes that summon the dog?”

                YOUNG ONE: “You said the dog returns to its master with treasure between its teeth.”

                MERLYN: “Yes.”

                YOUNG ONE: “I see blood on that treasure.”

                MERLYN: “Yes.”

                YOUNG ONE: “And the blood is my own.”

                MERLYN: “You are ready to whistle the notes.”

    “Goodbye Boston”..

    I made the mistake of reading a fake news MSM “science” article..

    The “scientist” is worried that an Antarctic glacier is going to “break off” and “flood or drown” Shanghai, Lagos, Mumbai, Jakarta, Miami and “goodbye Boston.”

    Deranged climate changers screw up everything they touch, causing more damage than the thing they dream to prevent..

    Their lack of common sense is incomprehensible..

    The scientist went to “study” the glacier because he thinks it might break off in 100 years or so.. So trying to save the world, he tested it.. Seismically.. He drilled holes deep into the ice, then dropped plastic explosives down the holes, and set them off – sending shock waves at 12,000 feet per second throughout the glacier..

    He did this 150 times..

    Because he’s scared the glacier might “break off”..

            Actually, that is definitely in the TV version. It happened after they teleported off of the ship that was programmed to crash into a sun.

            The B Ark was full of hair dressers and phone sanitizers and all sorts of ‘useful’ people. Their leader never left his bathtub. The Guide’s aside said the ones that sent them away died off from a disease transmitted on unsanitised telephones.

            They crash landed on the brand new Earth, the planet the mice had the magrathians make to calculate the question. Found Slartibartfast’s signature in the Norwegian fjords.

            The movie left this part out. As movies tend to do. But Adams changed the stories from medium to medium. Did you notice in the movie that the TV Marvin was waiting in line when they were trying to file the forms to save Trillian’s life?

            The radio show was the original. I don’t know if that is available. Nor have I ever heard it.

              So as not to go too far off-topic, our President has turned off the stove knob on our national pot in which we the frogs were being slowly boiled (which has the former would-be chefs irate!). The place I first heard frog boiling described, brilliantly, was when Douglas Adams came and gave a talk at my workplace back in the 90’s. He was one of the wittiest and best speakers ever. I remember he described the frogs’ thought process thusly:

              “Hmm, it’s a little hotter than it was a moment ago.”
              “Hmm, it’s a little hotter than it was a moment ago.”

        With one exception, he has done , both domestically and internationally what any “Conservative” President would have done, tried to do, or promised to do.

        Conservative Judges, check.
        Promise to move embassy, check.
        Promises to anti-abortion, check.
        Promise to protect 2A, (although POTUS has little to actually do) check.

        As was pointed out during GHWB’s funeral, they lambasted him when he was POTUS, and his Son. They ALWAYS attack, demean and undermine Republican POTUS’s; we have come to EXPECT it, even take comfort from it.

        But the attacks on DJT, as Candidate, incoming and as POTUS have been exponentially different.

        No ‘Honeymoon’, even during the transition he was under unrelenting attack.

        Its because he is upsetting the applecart, on TRADE. Its about CHINA.
        Its about destroying thevNEW WORLD ORDER.

        If any of the 16 dwarves had won tje nomination, and then the Presidency, Hillary would have been p.o.’d, but a Jeb, Marco or even Cruz wouldn’t have got the treatment DJT has gotten.

        Because they never would have questioned the lopsided trade agreements, and would have contracted out any trade negotiations to the CoC.

        Beyond that, they would have been allowed to make symbolic gestures, to satisfy the Republican base, and gin up the Democrat base, and their advisors would have steered them where they wanted them to go.

        Buchannan makes a valid point. But “Democracy” was one of the evils from which our founders tried to protect us by giving us this constitutional system (“A Republic, if you can keep it.”). If we have largely abandoned that system and then allowed our “news” media and our educational system to perpetuate ignorance and falsehood, we have accelerated what was perhaps inevitable.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Claims Jewish Ancestry at Hanukkah Party

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/10/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-claims-jewish-ancestry-at-hanukkah-party/

    Unlike Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), whose dubious claims of Native American ancestry were subject to DNA testing, Ocasio-Cortez’s Jewish claims would be difficult to prove, or to disprove, without a detailed family history.

    Oddly, the “democratic socialist” from New York had never mentioned her Jewish ancestry before — at least not in public — even though it might have been politically helpful for her to do so.
    (Another self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” from New York City, Julia Salazar, allegedly lied about her Jewish ancestry in running for a New York State Senate seat; she won anyway).

    Ocasio-Cortez has expressed anti-Israel views, supporting protests on the Gaza border in May that were organized by the Palestinian terror group Hamas, and calling for an end to the “occupation of Palestine” without specifying what she meant.

    She is also closely aligned with the “Women’s March,” which has been accused of antisemitism for its links with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Today Rush hit the nail on the head (again) when he talked about the kind of man we have as our president. Rush pointed out—and I’ll be blunt about it—what a tough SOB Trump has turned out to be; he’s accomplishing stuff no other president’s been able to do all the while contending with a Deep State bureaucracy is open revolt, a UniParty trying to thwart his every move. A lesser man (and most politicians, certainly those who ran against him are) would have long ago folded and become a ghost-in-the-White House kind of president. Instead Trump hits the campaign trail and single handedly staved off a huge mid-term defeat by working harder on the election than anyone. And while he’s busy campaigning he’s also negotiating a historic trade re-alignment with our trading partners and with China which has been ripping us off for decades.

    President Trump is anything but a “lesser man”. But his next two years are going to be his most challenging. With virtually all of Washington and the media working against him, he’s going to need the backing of his insurgent constituency base more than ever. He’s going to need us just as we’re going to need him if we truly want to save out country. Things are that critical, I think.

    Illegal Immigration Last Month Hit Highest Level in Over a Decade.

    10 Dec 2018
    by John Binder

    “Illegal immigration skyrocketed to the highest level in more than a decade for the month of November, as President Trump’s border wall remains unfunded by the Republican-controlled Congress.

    Last month, illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border soared to levels that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2014, when more than 51,500 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in April 2015.

    In November 2018, there were close to 52,000 border crossings on the southern border, alone, marking the highest level of illegal immigration in the month of November since 2006.

    The continuing rise of illegal immigration at the southern border indicates that Fiscal Year 2019 will see the biggest boom of illegal immigration in more than a decade, according to Princeton Researcher Steven Kopits.

    In total, Kopits projects that there will be more than 600,000 border crossings next year — a level of illegal immigration that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2008, when total southwest border apprehensions exceeded 705,000.”

      I’ve noticed that many people don’t understand the executive order that POTUS signed in March. People are always asking “Why no arrests?!” There’s a good reason. The executive order allowing for mass deep state arrests and military tribunals does not take affect until Jan 1, 2019. As we wait, Trump has been doing things in the right order so that it will be the most effective. All while the deep state fights him every step of the way.

        We are not going to have Military Tribunals for American civilian citizens.

        “Ex parte Milligan (1866) the Supreme Court ruled that the military tribunal lacked jurisdiction over Milligan and that he should have been tried in a federal civilian court. The Court first noted that Milligan was an American citizen who was a resident of a non-rebellious state, Indiana, during the Civil War. The Court also noted that Milligan was not connected to the armed forces and had not been fighting Union forces when he was captured, and that the civil courts of Indiana were operational at the time. Accordingly, the Court also argued Milligan was denied basic constitutional rights in being subjected to a military tribunal. These included the right to trial by jury, the right to be sentenced separately from trial, and various evidentiary and procedural rights incident to civilian trials. Together, the Court concluded that the laws and Constitution demand that Milligan, as with any other civilian, not be tried by a military tribunal if, as in this case, there is a civilian court available instead. To find otherwise, the Court opined, would mean that “republican government is a failure, and there is an end of liberty regulated by law.” The Court warned that “Martial law” in such a system “destroys every guarantee of the Constitution, and effectually renders the ‘military independent of and superior to the civil power.'” Ex parte Milligan was a stalwart affirmation of basic rights and liberties most Americans take for granted today. “

    One way to stop it is for Mexico to develop a viable middle-class. Economics will stop illegal immigration as effective as a Wall.

      Agreed. Wall St on it’s wild rollercoaster, disruption of his plans to meet w/Putin, daily smears by fake news…BUT, he is a smart man and master strategist. Putin is no slouch either. So, we have to weigh what is real and what is optics…there is panic in DC as we move ever closer to 1/1/19…

      WOW, let’s turn everything on its head. Russia has been massing troops and armaments on the Ukraine border, a sovereign state. Violated UNCLOS, that they signed up to to try and close the Azov sea isolating Ukrainian seaports, bombed and captured free passage by Ukrainian ships, holding the sailors hostage. Most intel monitoring sites are predicting war. These movements are not happenstance.

      They have moved nuclear capable bombers to Venezuela, to threaten the US. And one of China’s generals has said PLAN will or should attack the US FONAPs in the SCS.

      Putin is pushing the envelope because he thinks that the President is distracted by the Mueller investigation, UK is all lathered up by Brexit, France is imploding, and Merkel is hors de combat. What better time to launch their takeover.

      Whose side are you on?

                  Hymnody. It is not possible to be friends with a brutal thug that takes advantage of you everytime your back is turned or you show weakness. But calling the thug a thug, will allow you to have realistic relations with him.

                  Bush looked into Putin’s eyes and deceived himself. Putin took a large part of Georgia while Bush was weak. Using similar excuses to what they say about Ukraine today.

                  After Hillary’s overcharge button fiasco, she and Obozo blaming bad relations on Bush, Putin took advantage of them time and again in Crimea, Ukraine and Syria.

                  But you do not need to gaze into his eyes, or to fail to translate the word reset correctly to show weakness. Bush was weak because the constant media attacks worked to give the all of Congress to the Democrats, and he had to solve the mess he made in Iraq. Obama was trying to be weak, leading from behind skirts, drawing red lines that he won’t defend, telling enemies that he is going to withdraw.

                  And we are weak now. The DOJ, politicized by Obama, is attacking the President. 2 years of nonstop lies in the media have given the House to the Dems. And the Dems will never support Trump in anything. So too are France, UK and Germany, which has already been bought off.

                  And we have to walk a delicate high wire, protecting new NATO allies while not going to war with a nuclear power over blatant aggression by a brutal thug.

                  And we started this mess by ousting his puppet. Said puppet was elected in an election that was no more crooked than any won by Democrats here today.

        Russia controls both sides of the Kerch strait, essentially making the Sea of Azov a Russian lake. They have, since the annexation of Crimea, insisted anyone crossing through the strait ask for permission first. Ukraine has complied with that entirely reasonable demand up until now. When Poroshenko is up for re-election and his numbers are slipping, he suddenly decides “nah, not gonna bother, just going to sail warships right on through” KNOWING Putin must respond. They poke the bear, the bear swipes at them, and then Poroshenko gets to run around in Ukraine suddenly wearing fatigues and visiting military bases and declaring martial law so he can look all tough. This is a stupid political ploy people are pretending to fall for.

      1) The Clintons spent years perfecting their collusion with Russia (uranium 1, etc.). When they saw that VSGPDJT was going to win the 2016 election, they projected their habit of Russian collusion onto him and started accusing him of it.

      2) Now that collusion is utterly blown up as an attack, and that their own collusion with Russia is clear as a bell thanks to citizen-journalists, they move on to the next projection. The Clintons also clearly violated every kind of campaign finance regulation by paying Fusion GPS for a phony dossier that they then engineered into a FISA application, a special counsel investigation, and a yellowstream media payment—in-kind extravaganza.

      So, now it’s time for them to accuse VSGPDJT of – wait for it! – campaign finance violations!

      (Because the #3 step is rumored to be accusations against POTUS’ children, and the Clintons have no private sector experience at all, I’m very curious exactly how they are going to project something horrible they’ve done in the next step – but I’m confident they will find something!

      It’s a huge part of their mental illness. They expose themselves daily.

      With luck PDJT will have them projecting that one from their jail cells.)

      it was noted yesterday, the case was more of a states’ issue case, and not one for the Supreme Court. While we believe every thing wrong should be righted by the SC, that’s going to take decades to happen. Kavanaugh is still a constitutionalist judge until he shows us otherwise. Nothing in his previous rulings indicate that he is a liberal justice on that court.

      Roberts is a problem in that he rewrote legislation in order to rule as he did, ie. ACA. I believe he is tainted, and his rulings suspect.

    The time has come. Here is our grassroots action plan and some memes to get the conversation going in your circle of influence. Patriots keep asking the American Intelligence Media to organize something..so here is our attempt.

    Let’s use the next few months to build momentum at a local level. Wear the safety vest color of your choice. The French had yellow vests in their cars, as mandated by government overreach, and were handy to use at the first protests. American hunters (i.e. patriots with guns) prefer orange vests. Either color works.

    We want to start at a local and/or state level. Let’s get protests going all around the country and build our momentum before heading to the national capitol. All countries are invited to participate in this WILDFIRE GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT.

    The list of demands are extensive – from arresting Hillary Clinton and George Soros to stopping all U. S. funding of the UN, OPIC, USAID, NATO. We want fair elections with paper ballots and a bi-partisan chain of command. We want the DOJ to start prosecuting major swamp creatures – like Hillary and Bill Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Valerie Jarrett, Christopher Steele, Stefan Halper, John and Tony Podesta, the Bushes.

    We want military tribunals to be held for traitors like Robert Mueller. We want the perpetrators of 911 and its subsequent wars (Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, George Bush, and the neocons) to be held for crimes against Americans and humanity.

    We want the PATRIOT ACT to be immediately terminated.

    We are fed up with the globalists and their puppets, banksters and monarchs, popes and alien invaders. These people have had over 2000 years to run the planet. Their results? A planet full of criminal enterprises, human trafficking, pedophilia, dark money, and satanic cultures.
    You’re fired!

    Now it’s the people’s turn.

    There’s one thing I don’t get. Assuming that department of Justice works under the executive branch, why doesn’t President Trump direct them to investigate and prosecute every crime or breach of law that we already know has occurred under the administration of number 44? It would not take a whole lot to make the case on several items. We know that general Flynn and others we’re unmasked illegally. Why not start an investigation on that front and let the chips fall where they may? We also know, that there has been extensive leaking out of the state department, the justice department, and other entities of government. Why not investigate that? Also, while James Comey recommended non prosecution of server gate, that case was never dismissed and jeopardy is still attached. Then there’s the fraud perpetrated against voters by the DNC in supporting Hillary over Bernie… The money management of campaign donations and such… These and other crimes in the runup to the 2016elections could provide a steady source of newsfodder as to why voting Democrat is voting for a criminal syndicate…
