    The difference lockdowns in USA vs outside USA, per Martin Armstrong.

    FTA: Our reliable sources are all saying the same thing. They need these lockdowns and continued extended regulations of masks, social distancings all to prevent uprisings. The financial system is in serious crisis and this in part is causing the migration of capital. These lockdowns are now taking on covert purposes. While in the USA they are trying to overthrow Trump, outside of the USA they are trying to save Socialism. This is becoming very dramatic and the vast majority will lose a fortune because they refuse to look at what is taking place on a global coordinated basis.

    When is a good time for the President to start addressing the falsified death toll from Covid? It seems they are using the death toll numbers as a talking point to attack his handling of the virus, and if he knows how they are being counted inaccurately, then it should be addressed nationally.

      Also the number of positive cases must be questioned. For the last two months is someone tests positive, they add their entire family and everyone that person has come in direct contact with in the previous 24 hours. This is the reason for the second bubble. The deaths per day continue to decline.

      A single person can account for several ‘cases’ (positive tests), but, what happens to the outcome numbers?

      If a person has three positive tests and then one negative test, does that count as one recovery?

      How about a person who has two positive tests and then dies — does each ‘case’ (test) get counted as a death?

      I have been wondering why the President has been playing along with the false narrative as well. Now, he’s harping about wearing masks. SMH. Fauci & Birx lied to him since day 1, & he bought into it, as anyone would. They were supposed to be the experts, & I cannot blame Trump for listening to them, at least at first. Only reason I can think of for Trump to continue on with this is, IF the virus was as bad as Fauci claims, then Trump saved millions of Americans lives. However, about half of the country now is aware that there were never going to be millions of deaths no matter what we did. The President’s advisers who said let it play out, were right all along. See Sweden.

      (re Victor Davis Hanson article)
      Thank you for this link. It certainly is one of Hanson’s best ever.
      A possible insertion of Michelle Obama into the political mix would be a threading-of-the- needle event in that Biden is not currently carrying the full weight of Obama’s hard-left legacy, but it would certainly rear its ugly head once Michelle O. were to appear.

      If I were a betting man, I’d put money on that big square that says, ‘Biden picks Michelle O. as his running mate before the convention, then spends several weeks on a public relations ‘pre-victory’ tour, then withdraws his candidacy during the convention as Michelle O. receives the nomination in his place. Thus, everyone would know that it would represent The Return of Obama in every sense of the word, i.e. the first recorded co-presidency in American history!

        What about her campaign speeches? Ever hear a good one? She might have the best speech writers evah…but I don’t think she will measure up to the Main Man; seriously.

        My point is: If THEY run Michelle, it just proves that THEY have no idea who Donald J. Trump is, why he really ran for POTUS and why, we the Deplorables will vote for him again and again and again.

        THEY just don’t get it.

        • You know, Abigail, there’s never been a way to keep a spouse far away from presidential (or vice-presidential) deliberations and activity. For instance, Hillary Clinton automatically became Bill’s top ambassador-at-large with an all-encompassing portfolio, the repercussions of which continue to this day.

          In the case of Michelle O., she would likely make joint- appearances with her president- emeritus-and-soon-to-be-Ambassador-at-large-husband, Barack Obama, who will share in Michelle’s campaigning duties. But also remember, Dems hope to do everything virtually and remotely. The future First Couple would likely appear mostly in living room interviews with the likes of Oprah and Hollywood illuminati. BLM Inc. will also be doing a lot of the hard, door-to-door campaigning, so the future First Couple can sit back and enjoy the ‘peaceful protests!’

          It’s not hard to imagine at all!

            I know there are some real loons out there BUT not enough to get that One elected.

            Donald J. Trump is no chump when it comes to ‘setting the stage’ and ‘imagining the moment’. We witness IT every single day since his election.

            Quite frankly, I truly believe President Trump is anticipating a Michelle Run, since he is fully aware that Obama has been involved in the coup and he essentially ran against Obama in 2016.

            President Trump is not a quitter. He hits back very hard. Michelle will be no different than any other candidate that Obama selects to carry on with his destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

            President Trump is prescient. He is prepared to do what he must.

            Imagine how Michelle answers the questions of her husband’s administration and the weaponizing of the DOJ, FBI, NSA and so forth. Since she, as the First Lady, “was never away from the presidential deliberations and activities”, President Trump and his campaign will certainly have tons of fun to expose her role in her husband’s criminal activity. Who knows; maybe she had a direct hand into it also?

            Perhaps Durham, AG Barr, or others involved in the investigation will have interesting paths of treasonous or criminal activity leading to Michelle.

            After all, just look at Hillary?

      A federal grand jury today returned a superseding indictment charging Edward Buck with four additional felonies, including that he allegedly enticed victims – including a man who died at his West Hollywood apartment after he administered drugs to him – to travel interstate to engage in prostitution.

      Buck, 65, a LGBTQ political activist and Democratic political fundraiser, was arrested in September 2019 after being charged in United States District Court with providing methamphetamine to a man who died after receiving the drug intravenously. Since that time, federal authorities have continued to investigate Buck for additional crimes.

    The crooked bastards in Ca continue to lead the people to the abyss and pass laws solely to circumvent the constitution.

    After trying very hard to ban firearms altogether but failing because of 2nd A, they did an end run by banning most of the guns and magazines that you can buy in any other state and creating a whole list of offenses that make you “ineligible” to buy or possess a firearm.

    That wasn’t enough.
    They passed a law that requires you to pay a fee and pass a background check to get a license to buy ammunition in addition to a fee on every ammo purchase.

    Now, if you apply for a permit to buy ammunition and they deem you ineligible (you were late on your child support!), they consider the application as evidence that you must already possess the firearm that goes with that ammunition and they get a warrant, raid your house and confiscate all guns, ammunition and whatever else strikes their eye.
    This is already happening.

    I left Ca over a dozen years ago because I saw where things were heading and moved to a state where I could get my CCW.
    When the state I’m in now did the background check for my CCW, Ca reported me for a traffic ticket that I paid (two weeks) late in 1971 because I was out of state on vacation.
    Ca reported it as a unresolved FTA solely for the purpose of trying to kill my CCW app.

    Fortunately the state I live in now knew what Ca was doing and it didn’t matter but this illustrates how low Ca will go to get their way.

      “You can’t be a Dragon Slaying Hero if there is no Dragon.

      One of the Blackmail tactics used by UNIPARTY GOPe (and results in their re-election) is that they collude with and compel Democrats to push for more Unconstitutional Disarmament Laws. This creates the Dragon.

      Then UNIPARTY GOPe claims they are the only ones who will Defeat the Anti- 2nd Amendment Dragon. They are then re-elected. They have slayed the Dragon.

      Approximately 400,000,000+ firearms in the US, and thousands are made per week.

    Someone, I apologize for no attribution, earlier posted that the person who actually alerted President Trump that he was under surveillance was not Adm Rogers but a 31 year old named Ezra Watnick-Cohen. This Watnick-Cohen, appointed by Gen Flynn to the National Security Council, was protected [by Trump?] from a general cleaning out of Flynn appointments by McMasters when Flynn was smeared and subsequently fired. A July 23, 2017 article by Rosie Gray in the Politics section of theatlantic.com, entitled “The Man McMaster Couldnt Fire,” attempts to bring Watnick-Cohen exposure. Clearly the writer failed as his name remains in the shadows for the most part. But, if he really was Trump’s guardian angel early on that explains how he survived firing and continues to serve his President.

    In addition to the overall history, a couple of reasons why chalking up what happened in Lebanon so quickly to errant worker protocols might not be a slam dunk (any more than it was in Paris and the “worker started an attic fire, case closed” line):

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_Lebanese_protests

    https://www.lowyinstitute.org/the-interpreter/lebanon-hezbollah-stands-against-protests

    “ A technocratic secular government may sound like a good idea, but it would require abolishing the entire system and rewriting the constitution. Iran has clearly indicated its opposition to such a plan and its willingness to act on that opposition. Even if it had full factional support, it seems unlikely the street will not hold for the time it would take to do so.”

    “ Unfortunately, in the short term, the most likely scenario is that, in true Lebanese style, a bomb or an assassination will ignite the sectarian undercurrents. Lebanon’s sectarian kleptocratic leaders will be all too willing to exploit such an incident by claiming they alone are the protectors of those threatened with violence. Lebanon is awash with guns and it only takes a handful of die-hard armed loyalists to disrupt the unity these protests represent.”

    See Sydney Powell’s question suggestion on Fox Business interview Tues evening:

    Why did you initiate contact with the WH, to get Flynn fired for lying to the FBI during the FBI ambush interview, two times on the day after, and once 2 days after, the FBI agents told you that Gen. Flynn was NOT lying ?

    You were told in no uncertain terms that he was NOT lying, but then immediately started your effort to get Trump to fire him FOR lying.

    Lindsey needs Sydney there to ask questions just as Schifty had Lawfare lawyers ask questions for him during his House hearings.

    And any Senator who had a CCP spy as a personal driver should be banned from office.

    BREAKING: President Trump on DOJ Investigations into Obamagate: “I Do Hear It’s Breathtaking What They Found” (VIDEO)
    By Joe Hoft
    Published August 4, 2020

    President Trump joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night.

    During their conversation President Trump told Dobbs “it’s a horrible thing that took place”

    President Trump: We caught them spying. Now it’s up to our Attorney General

    As you know I wanted them to do it.

    I didn’t want to get overly involved…

    I do hear it’s breathtaking what they found that’s all I can say.

    President Trump again makes the statement about what he is hearing about the investigation into Obamagate:

    “We caught them spying now it’s up to our Attorney General. As you know I wanted them (Barr’s DOJ) to do it. I didn’t want to get overly involved.

    Maybe I should, maybe I shouldn’t but I do hear it’s breathtaking what they found.

    That’s all I can say – breathtaking.”

      Yates describes “Russian hack of DNC”

      at the DNC computer for themselves,
      rather than rely on DNC’s Crowdstrike hirelings ?

      In a time of perceived unprecedented attack,
      they certainly had some odd responses and non-responses.

      JS, I must beg to differ with your statements that “the people of SC(South Carolina) let us down…..Kentucky gave us Mitch again too”. The “people” do the best they can with what they have to work with politically and many people within those states tried their best to vote for a primary opponent–but they were in the minority and were out voted.

      I do not agree with blaming “the people” of……whatever state or locality. I am in a solid blue city and always vote for the best conservative candidate whether in a primary or general because I will voice my opinion by my vote–whether or not my vote is cancelled out by other citizens of my locality or state.

      Why do you view people like me letting you down by lumping all citizens/voters of a district or state as letting “us” down together? By Gummy, we fight the fight we can!

      But, I do agree with you on your last 2 sentences!

    OUTRAGEOUS: Husband of Nasty Democrat Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Who Accused AG Barr of Murder, Was Paid $700,000 by Ukranian Oligarch
    By Joe Hoft
    Published August 5, 2020

    Of course nearly everything the Democrats do is corrupt, so it comes as no surprise that the husband of one of the loudest and most disgusting House members, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, was paid over $700,000 by a Ukrainian Oligarch.
    This same oligarch is at the center of the FBI’s raids yesterday in Cleveland and Miami.
    One of the nastiest House Representative’s in last week’s disgusting lambasting of Attorney General Bill Barr was Florida’s Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. This representative basically accused President Trump and AG Barr of murder.

    No wonder Ecuadorian-born Rep. Mucarsei-Powell doesn’t like AG Barr. He is getting too close to uncovering her connections to corruption in the Ukraine.
