    I posted this on the IG thread but it is relevent everywhere.

    All these years later…after first appreciating that playwright David Mamet, after his conversion from liberal to conservative…revealed: ‘in order to succeed in their endeavors leftists have to pretend not to know things’;…do I realize now that these shadow government criminals are “People of the Lie.”

    People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil
    by M. Scott Peck

    “When I say that evil has to do with killing, I do not mean to restrict myself to corporeal murder. Evil is that which kills spirit. There are various essential attributes of life — particularly human life — such as sentience, mobility, awareness, growth, autonomy, will. It is possible to kill or attempt to kill one of these attributes without actually destroying the body. Thus we may “break” a horse or even a child without harming a hair on its head.

    “Erich Fromm was acutely sensitive to this fact when he broadened the definition of necrophilia to include the desire of certain people to control others-to make them controllable, to foster their dependency, to discourage their capacity to think for themselves, to diminish their unpredectibility and originalty, to keep them in line. Distinguishing it from a “biophilic” person, one who appreciates and fosters the variety of life forms and the uniqueness of the individual, he demonstrated a “necrophilic character type,” whose aim it is to avoid the inconvenience of life by transforming others into obedient automatons, robbing them of their humanity.

    “Evil then, for the moment, is the force, residing either inside or outside of human beings, that seeks to kill life or liveliness. And goodness is its opposite. Goodness is that which promotes life and liveliness.”

    ― M. Scott Peck, People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil

    Let me add that the point of pure evil and it’s lust for power, is especially the avoidance of accountability.</b?

    More power, more money, more possessions…the normal person asks: “To what end?”

    The ultimate end, I believe, is to avoid the legal, moral, ethical and social consequences of past choices and behaviors.

      Rush today pointed out that PapaD didn’t say “emails” but rather “dirt”. I have to verify this, but I think Rush is right. If so, it’s pretty interesting … Mifsud tells PapaD about “emails”, PapaD tells Downer about “dirt”, and then Downer tells the FBI about “emails”.instead of “dirt”.

  6. Flynn dodges Dec. 18th sentencing by going to S. Korea from Dec. 21st to Jan. 7th to visit family.

    Judge Sullivan still has to approve it.

    The prosecutors in the Justice Dept. did.

    First, on Nov. 27th, the Judge granted an indefinite delay in Flynn sentencing.

    Flynn is facing five years in jail. Pled guilty twice to lying to the FBI.

    The Judge said he “was in no hurry” to sentence Flynn.

    On Aug. 14th, Flynn’s attorney admitted her client was going back and forth to S. Korea. No details were given.

    What is Flynn doing in S. Korea?

      It seems like all three main players know how they’re going to wind it up. They just don’t want to be the ones to do it.

    NABU Director Artem Sytnyk – “I helped Hillary” –


    • jx says:

      Artem “I Helped Hillary” Sytnyk and Serhiy Leshchenko were convicted by Ukraine of illegally releasing documents and interfering in US elections. –

      Here is video of Leshchenko releasing the “black ledger”. The video was produced by the Soro’s backed Ukraine Crisis Media Center. –

      Watch the double-talk – The signatures on this receipt for a money transfer to Manafort and on this contract with Manafort for purchase of PCs match. The amount for the PC purchase is also shown on this hand-written ledger with no signature. Ergo Manafort received money illicitly. – The ledger doesn’t prove anything.


    • jx says:

      The “black ledger”, of dubious provenance, allegedly was found at Yanukovych’s home. Yanukovych fled the couintry during the maidan protests. Before fleeing many documents were dumped in a lake at Yanukovych’s home and were later retrieved by divers. –

      It’s interesting that this “black ledger” appears and then is used by persons who say they helped Clinton. Mighty convenient.

      The article mentions Mustafa Nayem, calling him a journalist. Nayem is tied with Soros and launched the maidan protests via the State Dept developed method of social media. He’s worth researching. Here is a page for Soro’s International Renaissance Foundation, it has some info on Nayem’s involvement with IRF. The page is in Ukrainian so run it through a translator. –

      Interesting that Nayem is involved with retrieval of documents from Yanukovych’s lake.

    Patrick Byrne, former CEO of has reactivated his his website This is an interesting tidbit from the comments section on one of his blog entries:

    “Patrick Byrne says:
    October 14, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    I am not going to “find out” who is implicated in this coup attempt. I already know (and filmed it and put it all on memory sticks held under different dead-man switches). The people who are going to find out are you.”

    Here is a link to the entire article, where he relates his (in my opinion somewhat misguided) thoughts on PDJT:

      Forgot to mention – he is living on a boat somewhere in the remote Caribbean to avoid being “neutralized” and isn’t planning on returning to “civilization” until some arrests are made.


      • Robert Smith says:

        Byrne certainly knows that it would be better if he disappeared. Dead-man switches are nice, but they are threatened but never seem to happen.

    Am I the only person who has pretty much tuned out all of the impeachment hype? I had CBS news on earlier, there was a story about impeachment, maybe several stories, and all I heard was “blah blah blah blah”. 🙂 I’m not even worried about it. Maybe I should be?

    • Obviously, American laws have been broken, concerning embezzlement and misappropriation of American aid money (billions of dollars worth …), abuse of power, and many more things.

      In addition to whatever the Ukranians come up with, it’s high time to start filing “high crime” charges against these people: Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, Biden, and yes, Obama. (There are others.)

      No… “this has nothing to do with ‘politics.'” This has everything to do with law enforcement.

      Yes, in spite of everything you have sought to do against PDJT, you shall face a trial by a jury of your peers in which you shall be afforded every Constitutional right that you are entitled to. And you will be convicted anyway.

    Nunes is on Hannity right now about the phone calls.

    There is a process for official calls, Nunes explains.

    And he also said he has known Giuliani for years, and if there is a record of Nunes’ phone call with Giuliani, it would be because they were laughing about how Mueller’s report bombed out.

      Let me get this straight. The Dems put EVERYTHING ON HOLD for months. Then at the end of the day, they don’t even come through with the ONE THING THEY’VE BEEN DOING ALL THIS TIME?!?!?!?!?!

      That is LITERALLY “Do-Nothing”.


    • Robert Smith says:

      It’s not over until its over.

      They want it to serve the same role as the Mueller SC when he/they/it realized they couldn’t take down Trump. Bleed Trump until the time that he makes a “mistake” they can use to impeach him.

    “…A city in Illinois has announced it will create a reparations fund for its African American community through a new tax on marijuana sales.

    Recreational use of the drug will become legal in the state from January and officials in Evanston, which is 12 miles north of Chicago, have voted to approve a 3 per cent tax on the sales to fund a local reparations programme.

    The tax is expected to generate between $500,000 and $750,000 annually for the reparations fund, which will be capped at $10 million over the next ten years…”

      Yes. Yes they are.

      Feels like Beto started this trend when he ran against Cruz in TX. a couple years back.

      Then w/ AOC getting props for her Instagram “cooking mac n’ cheese” shows, etc. and when Lizzie Warren picked it up w/ her “I’ll drink a beer and chat w/ y’all” vid., well….it just took off and now they ALL do this stupid sh*t.

      It’s like a requirement now.

      De Santis does a lot of really Common Sense stuff. I have to spend several hours a week w/ a few *really* loud- mouth, GOP- hating Dems and even THEY have given DeSantis props for a few things he’s done.

      Wish I could remember now exactly what these things were, but suffice it to say: if these Dems aren’t super duper DeSantis Haters, then I totally get how more Middle of the Road Dems would be A-OK w/ DeSantis.

      He’s a great Governor. Period.
