    Pay special attention to this statement “In 2017, the FBI discovered 72,000 pages of documents that Hillary tried to delete or destroy and the State Department has been slow-walking the release of those documents.”

    So who is controlling the State Department now – Secretary Of State Pompeo

    X-Director of the CIA.

    So why has the X-Director of the CIA, not corrected the slow walking of the 72,000 pages of Hillary Clinton documents? Because he is still protecting Hillary Clinton and the involvement of the CIA in the coup of President Trump.

    Hillary Clinton and Lanny Davis Tried to Establish a Secret Back Channel to Israel, Classified Emails Reveal

    Recall, the Deep State-Democrat-media complex fiercely attacked Trump’s former National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn for talking to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on the phone before Trump’s inauguration, claiming his conversations violated the very obscure Logan Act which was established in 1799 and to this day never been invoked in a prosecution.

    But Hillary Clinton is allowed to violate the Espionage Act with the use of a private server without fear of reprisal.

    If not for Judicial Watch, the American public would never have known about Hillary Clinton’s private server that she used while she was the head of the Department of State.

    Hillary Clinton conducted official business on her non-“” emails to evade FOIA because she wanted to conceal her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play.

    Crooked Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages she turned over to investigators contained all of her work related emails and that the 33,000 emails she destroyed and deleted were all personal emails that mainly contained Chelsea’s wedding plans and yoga.

    In 2017, the FBI discovered 72,000 pages of documents that Hillary tried to delete or destroy and the State Department has been slow-walking the release of those documents.

    “We continue to uncover the mishandling of classified information in Hillary Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy. This is further evidence of the urgency for the DOJ to finally undertake a complete and legitimate criminal investigation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Attorney General Barr should immediately order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”

      You know this how? Please note that neither Judicial Watch nor Tom Fitton has made that claim or that connection.

      Accusing Mike Pompeo, a dedicated public servant and devoutly Christian man, without providing the slightest proof of such libelous accusations is shameful. Fanciful deduction is not proof.

    State Propaganda: How Government Agencies Produce Hundreds of Pre-Packaged TV Segments the Media Runs as News

    The article reports that at least 20 federal agencies–including the Defense Department and the Census Bureau–have distributed hundreds of television news segments in the past four years. Many were then broadcast on local stations without crediting the government as the source of the information.

    The Government has Been Deploying Propaganda On U.S. Soil for Many Years as part of an intelligence agenda

    The United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities found in 1975 that the CIA submitted stories to the American press (see video).

    Operation Mockingbird

    “After 1953, the network was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the CIA. By this time, Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. The usual methodology was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to witting or unwitting reporters. Those reports would then be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services.

    The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was funded by siphoning off funds intended for the Marshall Plan [i.e. the rebuilding of Europe by the U.S. after WWII]. Some of this money was used to bribe journalists and publishers.” (Wikipedia adds details)

    In 2008, the New York Times wrote:

    During the early years of the cold war, [prominent writers and artists, from Arthur Schlesinger Jr. to Jackson Pollock] were supported, sometimes lavishly, always secretly, by the C.I.A. as part of its propaganda war against the Soviet Union. It was perhaps the most successful use of “soft power” in American history.

    A CIA operative told Washington Post editor Philip Graham … in a conversation about the willingness of journalists to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories:


    • BAM says:

      What percentage of those distributed stories were disseminated by the previous administration. The past FOUR years? That sounds purposefully misleading.

    OAN Network Executives are leaking news that Tucker Carlson and Jeannine Pirro will leave the Fox Network voluntarily — never to return. According to CEO of Propaganda for OAN, Art Tubolls:

    Quite frankly people are beginning to get fed up with Fox News catering to people like Shep Smith while good, wholesome Christians like Tucker and Jeannine are chastised for caring about America.”

    Shep Smith is an openly gay homosexual who is also in a relationship with a man who is an openly gay homosexual. Tucker Carlson has a wife and kids. So how do we believe the guy who goes against the bible? Just how?

    Unfortunately, Fox is headed down the path to becoming the next CNN. They sold out once, they’ll do it again. Until then, we look forward to the new show. A spokesman for the network development team says the new show will be more relaxed and use couches rather than anchor desks:

    “Judge Pirro has magnificent legs. If we can take some of the focus from her booming, manly voice by softening her feminine qualities, we’ll do just that. We’re completely re-branding her like they tried with Great Van Susteren, but this time it will work.”

    The Trump administration is also actively seeking a bench for Pirro, should she decide to get back into the robe.

All the msm news outlets are fighting for an increasingly smaller piece of advertising dollar, as more people are streaming now than ever before. Or cutting the cord altogether. Also, conservatives (because of a hostile press) have found alternative ways to get our news truths. Primarily through sites like this, and a few others, plus podcasts.

          Fox is walking away from the most innovative and successful business model in the history of broadcasting. It began at the short-lived TVN in 1974, where Roger Ailes learned the template from Bob Pauley, then migrated to Fox with Ailes. Ailes gets total credit for securing Murdoch’s deep pockets and burnishing and sustaining the model as a huge success. Why would Fox be doing this inexplicably stupid thing? The seduction of appeasement. It’s an awesome force, greater than money (obviously).

    Fahrenheit 451: Beatty’s Speech to Montag

    “Now let’s take up the minorities in our civilization, shall we? Bigger the population, the more minorities. Don’t step on the toes of the dog-lovers, the cat-lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation Chinese, Swedes, Italians, Germans, Texans, Brooklynites, Irishmen, people from Oregon or Mexico. The people in this book, this play, this TV serial are not meant to represent any actual painters, cartographers, mechanics anywhere. The bigger your market, Montag, the less you handle controversy, remember that! All the minor minor minorities with their navels to be kept clean. Authors, full of evil thoughts, lock up your typewriters. They did. Magazines became a nice blend of vanilla tapioca. Books, so the damned snobbish critics said, were dishwater. No wonder books stopped selling, the critics said. But the public, knowing what it wanted, spinning happily, let the comic-books survive. And the three-dimensional sex magazines, of course. There you have it, Montag. It didn’t come from the Government down. There was no dictum, no declaration, no censorship, to start with, no! Technology, mass exploitation, and minority pressure carried the trick, thank God. Today, thanks to them, you can stay happy all the time, you are allowed to read comics, the good old confessions, or trade journals.”

    Truman orders loyalty checks of federal employees
    In response to public fears and Congressional investigations into communism in the United States, President Harry S. Truman issues an executive decree establishing a sweeping loyalty investigation of federal employees.

    As the Cold War began to develop after World War II, fears concerning communist activity in the United States, particularly in the federal government, increased. Congress had already launched investigations of communist influence in Hollywood, and laws banning communists from teaching positions were being instituted in several states. Of most concern to the Truman administration, however, were persistent charges that communists were operating in federal offices. In response to these fears and concerns, Truman issued an executive order on March 21, 1947, which set up a program to check the loyalty of federal employees. In announcing his order, Truman indicated that he expected all federal workers to demonstrate “complete and unswerving loyalty” the United States. Anything less, he declared, “constitutes a threat to our democratic processes.”

    The basic elements of Truman’s order established the framework for a wide-ranging and powerful government apparatus to perform loyalty checks. Loyalty boards were to be set up in every department and agency of the federal government. Using lists of “totalitarian, fascist, communist, or subversive” organizations provided by the attorney general, and relying on investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, these boards were to review every employee. If there existed “reasonable grounds” to doubt an employee’s loyalty, he or she would be dismissed. A Loyalty Review Board was set up under the Civil Service Commission to deal with employees’ appeals.

    Truman’s loyalty program resulted in the discovery of only a few employees whose loyalty could be “reasonably” doubted. Nevertheless, for a time his order did quiet some of the criticism that his administration was “soft” on communism. Matters changed dramatically in 1949-1950. The Soviets developed an atomic bomb, China fell to the communists, and Senator Joseph McCarthy made the famous speech in which he declared that there were over 200 “known communists” in the Department of State. Once again, charges were leveled that the Truman administration was “coddling” communists, and in response, the Red Scare went into full swing.

    “Patrick Henry was a prominent figure in the American Revolution, known and remembered primarily for his ‘Give me liberty or give me death’ speech. Along with Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine, he was one of the most influential (and radical) advocates of the American Revolution and republicanism, especially in his denunciations of corruption in government officials and his defense of historic rights.
