Dear Facebook, Please Stop Suppressing Loyal Americans.

Dear Facebook, Please stop suppressing loyal Americans.

Facebook is a real hellhole, these days. I suppose it always has been; after all, we’ve been going through this now since 2016 and before. The first time we wrote an article chronicling our electronic woes, we called it Fake News and Facebook, and that was in 2017. But lately, things have gotten even worse. Far worse.

Democrats are being systematically targeted, taken out, suppressed, silenced, deactivated, unpublished, and erased, on Facebook. Trump recently hauled him in to express preposterous concerns as to whether or not they’ve been suppressing conservative speech, which was, in my opinion, a smokescreen to distract from the true situation, a classic case of Freudian projection. The list of miseries they have caused us recently is endless. This article could be written until the end of time.

This is why recently grilled Mark Zuckerberg (who ludicrously claimed Facebook can help the news business recently- perhaps he means by lighting it on fire? The world may never know) was threatened by the House of Representatives that we might just break up his company for him if he does not toe the line.

Is it our opinion that Facebook should be smashed to bits and scattered to the Four Winds? No. We need it to reach people, but something must be done. If you’re asking us, should it be taken away from Zuckerberg and his cronies, like Dustin Moskowitz who gave the staggering sum of $1.25 million to the fake leftist organization that crowned and created Bernie Sanders?

You better believe it!

Facebook and Zuckerberg pose an existential threat to free speech. The way they have callously sold our data, the way they did nothing in 2016 to warn us that Russia, an enemy country, was attacking our presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and their flagrant, everyday abuse of the brave Democratic activists who have led the Resistance against Donald Trump- All of it represents an undermining of American democracy on a level never even approached by Bill Gates and Microsoft (although Linux is better than Windows:) back in the day, and look at what was done to them! If Microsoft deserved it, Facebook deserves it a hundred times more. A thousand, ten thousand times more. The number is infinite, really.

This guy Zuckerberg- who I genuinely hope reads this article-has earned being removed from the situation if anyone ever did. Look at the epic slither he tossed out as a slick when Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (who is pretty good at grilling these guys, even if she does hang around with the closeted right-wing group the Justice Democrats) asked him (in essence) why in the hell has Fox News’s Tucker Carlson’s company The Daily Caller been chosen to check these facts?

 “We actually don’t appoint the independent fact-checkers, they go through an independent organization called the Independent Fact-Checking Network that has a rigorous (LOL!~) standard for who they allow to serve as a fact-checker.” 

That is false. Media Matters of America informs us that “Facebook requires its partners to be accredited by the organization, which is actually called the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), but it is Facebook, not IFCN, who decides which organizations Facebook uses in its fact-checking project.”

Actually, it’s not even a slither, since slithering implies evasion or omission rather than a flat out lie. This IS a flat out lie. A major American figure, one who should be an icon of free speech, lying on behalf of the Russians and the fascist American right. How utterly disgusting. How banal.

In her fundamental work The Origins of Totalitarianism, legendary political theorist Hannah Arendt coined an interesting phrase to describe an interesting tendency; the “banality of evil”. She was observing the pettiness of mankind’s cruelty to man in the realm of a dictator. The small petty ugliness of evil, the evil of cheap shots and Blockfuhrers. The thug classes and discriminatory neo-Jim Crow laws one will find in a failing democracy. One particular evil always comes in the form of information suppression. State TV like Fox News is a top indicator.

The first time I actually saw banal evil, it was when a Wal-Mart opened up in Taos, New Mexico and killed half the small businesses in town, more than two hundred of them. I resolved to fight and began to raise awareness just as I do now, and again, like now with Facebook, it was very hard to get anyone to listen.

One guy I met sort of cocked his eyebrow suspiciously at me, and said, “You high, man?” As it worked out I was not. But perhaps I might as well have been. For all our struggles, the next year they opened a Super Walmart, and all the rest of the town’s little Mom and Pop stores followed the dinosaurs and Pat Buchanan down the path to forgotten oblivion.

This time, I will not give up so easily, and neither will any other online Democratic activist. Yet our arsenal is not enough alone. We are asking for your help, America. Facebook is trying to shut us down.

This is happening to every group of Democrats on Facebook.

Why are we being forbidden to speak out for our country? There’s no rule saying that, of course, but half of our Pages at least, more than fifty of them, have been shadowbanned and unpublished over the years, and more than ever recently. It’s clear we’ve got stalkers, trained personnel who know how to use the Report as Spam/Abuse button as weapons. Presumably they’re the same people who are trying to hack my blog here all day long. I have had some of the best hackers in the world try to hack me lately, like this guy Alin Stefanescu, head of the University of Bucharest’s computer science department.

One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.

This is Alin Stefanescu. One of my many teachers-and one more hacker trying to ruin me.

Wow, I thought. Just- wow. He's got an entire university department to run, and still he finds the time to pile attacks on little ol' me.
This is the WHOIS registry’s information on the IP address that had hacked us most recently. Other than this, I have no relationship with the crude and thuggish Stefanescu, friend and servant of dictators.

Romania is known for the skill of its hackers and the school he works at is considered their best. That means that the top information technology expert in Romania has been trying personally to take me out.

God, how creepy.

It’s not possible to see who’s been falsely reporting you and stalking your Facebook. But common sense is enough to let you know, if they’re here, they’re there.

There are only three major social media sites in America. Twitter comes in at third place with around three hundred million members; roughly the population of our proud country. We just launched Twitter on every state in the country, we’ve had enough of this. Instagram takes second with nine hundred million, and in the first place, as everyone miserably knows, is Facebook. Two billion people are on Facebook, nearly a third of all the people on Earth. That should be good for Americans since it is an American company.

But it isn’t.

Facebook has been the enemy since at least 2015. I ended up falling down the political rabbit-hole because of Facebook ads spreading around fake news attacks on Hillary Clinton. It didn’t seem like Karl Rove or the Koch Brothers, either. I was reminded of Wal-Mart in Taos, and I entered the fray in dead earnest. I have been here every day since then, watching as resurgent fascism begins to sweep like wildfire over the world.

The battlefield back then as now was cybernetic, and our struggle was the first proxy war we had fought with the Russians since Afghanistan. Of the many battles we have fought in since then, 99 out of 100 have been on Facebook. There’s a movement around, #DeleteFacebook, and this is to be recommended with the highest degree of seriousness for John Q. Citizen. But for us, it isn’t an option. For all its many flaws, Facebook is where we reach most of our people, and that is worth any possible risk to me.

Before that, I always thought it was just something for old ladies to trade pictures of their cats on- and it is. Cat pictures are about the only thing you’re not getting in trouble for these days.

Because of what Facebook has done to us this week, and why, it’s going to be harder than usual for us to get this article out. Make no mistake at all; they are suppressing loyal Democrats online.

The big thing is that they unpublished our dear good Millennial Democrats- Hawaii Page. 3.1 thousand Likes. We often reach upwards of a hundred thousand weekly. Our Directory Page, Millennial Democrats-America has now been shadowbanned, e.g. our posts are denied access to their News Feed. We were supposed to get off restriction today, but for the fourth week in a row, the first post-not in any way in violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service- was enough to restrict us with a shadowban again. For years they denied they even knew what shadowbanning was, and then a month or two ago they actually patented it. Lol.

Ohio and Oregon are likewise restricted, which is odd since Ohio is not a busy state for us. I guess they figured it was for good measure. Four of our friends are on restriction, and for nothing. Facebook is not even warning people anymore. Two of our friends have had their actual accounts deactivated, again with no reason and they also have disabled even our ability to Report that our Page is broken. They do not respond to our appeals. They literally will not accept our pleas.

Facebook deactivated our Page, and then refused even to let us file a report asking for help, as you can see in the picture.
Facebook deactivated our Page, and then refused even to let us file a report asking for help, as you can see in the picture.

You ever saw that movie Hobo with a Shotgun? Rutger Hauer, you know? Great movie. Rutger looks like he’s been abusing methamphetamine, but that’s part of its charm. It reminds me of the Facebook algorithm. Because what Mark Zuckerberg has done is to take that infamous algorithm they use as a weapon of suppression millions of times more powerful than Bull Connor’s police dogs and file it down to a hair-trigger. Now it blows up at anything, whether it be true or not.

We are tired of fighting this alone.

It is time for the big boys to get involved. Feel free to consider us a resource, guys. This guy here, who threatened to kill me? I would like nothing better than the chance to impale him-with the law.

And there you have it; a psychopathic hacker sending emails threatening murder. Whether or not you agree with me isn't the point. I am an American, your countryman. If Warren does win, these same people will be attacking you. Be careful, fellow Democrats, not to make a devil's bargain. We are not enemies in my eyes, just opponents for now. I don't want to see you lot get killed, even if you don't return my sentiments.
And there you have it; a psychopathic foreign hacker sending emails to Democrats threatening murder.

What we face now is an information struggle, friends and countrymen, and the prize is the soul of the world order. They want to bring in the awful hybrid socialism used in places like China and Hungary. Will we continue along in the proud liberal American tradition that has brought us to our perch atop the world? Or will we let some slimebag techie like Mark Zuckerberg pick and choose our presidents for us, along with savage dictators like Vladimir Putin? For a real Democrat, there is no choice to make at all. We’re going to fight them.

And we’re asking for your help. Tell everyone you know. Call your local Representatives, write to your Senators. You can skip the White House, though. These days the assaults on our country are being ordered from it.

Trump goes Bonkers- In Syria and Everywhere Else.

Trump goes Bonkers- In Syria and Everywhere Else.
I have heard from our social media coordinators that Page Likes on Facebook have gone through the roof this week. This must be due to the incredibly intense political interest going on right now. A lot of it is the awesomeness of our Facebook personnel, who undoubtedly are the very best. But I think it also goes to show. Right now, things are at a fever pitch.
These days are made of pure history.
In circumstances where the president and a freshman Representative are trading blows as equals on social media, virtually nothing is unthinkable. This is molecular chaos. I have never seen anything like it. I don’t believe anyone has. There is no way of telling now where it could end. Once again, yet with eyes from which hope has faded, we look to our Republican countrymen for the help we will need to free our country from a tyrant. Because things have gotten worse every day that Donald Trump is running the United States of America. Just look at what’s happening in Syria, where once again, Trump has made a mess.
What else is new.
Recently Trump was tweeting about his “Great and Unmatched Wisdom” as if he were a Chinese emperor. Boasting like a pimp is always repugnant, no matter who is doing it; a gentleman I met last week at a bus stop informed me that “Pimps don’t get respect like that in jail”.
I found that comforting, at least.
Trump also has sent our Kurdish allies in Syria, who held firm with us in our fight against ISIS, tumbling under the wheels of the bus. One official said he caved. I’m sure it was pathetic; it always is. Why not go whole hog, if making ourselves a global joke? We should send Trump himself to the front line, and all the other evil celebrities with him. Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, to the front line. And Bill Cosby. And that a-hole Joseph Kony. Why not? Let’s Make An Army of One out of Subway Jared. Fight your record clean, boy.
Before when Trump withdrew us from Syria, many suspected he had cut a deal of some sort. He didn’t end up facing prosecution over what Robert Mueller found, even though Mueller flat out said he would have charged him himself if he wasn’t the President. I predicted at that time that we would see a Trump grown increasingly lawless and frightening. His alt-right leadership has long ago fallen by the wayside in favor of a young and power-hungry lot who have proven themselves willing to do anything.
There is just no knowing where it all could find a place to end.
The people just need to see that there is somebody somewhere who has a plan, and we at Millennial Democrats do, in fact, have a plan. It’s pretty simple, too. We get every sane and decent person we can find and bring them together as one. We can organize, stay calm, and bring everyone we know to the party. If that someone is us, so be it. Because shit is busting loose worse than I’ve ever seen it yet, and the talking heads on television aren’t making any sense to anyone. The people are completely bewildered, and sullen and mean in their bewilderment.
Collectively, we’re like a rattlesnake dumped out of a sack. We are all but blind and yet ready to snap. It’s dangerous. Everyone is saying that we’re living in historical times; who knows what will happen next. It’s like dumping a bag of Ping-Pong balls off a Windy City skyscraper, with a shout out to my people in Chicago, and trying to predict where they’ll all land. Everything is becoming so surreal.
The Chinese have an old curse that goes roughly, May you live in interesting times. I guess Xi must have been bored too because he just amped up his country’s cursed interesting level. Pictures of hundreds of blindfolded prisoners have been smuggled out of there recently.
In other news, Romanian hackers have joined the Chinese and Russians in their assault on the Millennial Democrats blog. Turns out Romania’s president Klaus Iohannis– who is in an election struggle with his country’s Social Democrats (the European equivalent of us American Democrats, and NOT to be confused with the disturbed moronism of Bern and his Democratic Socialism)- was here in late August, meeting with Trump at the White House. I really wonder what these people want to know so bad! Jesus! It’s been multiple times a day for years now. I know; I save all the emails.
Here is the email from Sucuri telling me this guy's IP address. I was startled to find out what would be on the other end! The top IT specialist in all of Romania has been trying to take me down. I'm not sure whether to be amused, flattered, or terrified. I guess there's a bit of all three.

Stefanescu here thought he could hide by using TOR, but the good folks at WHOIS had him pegged already. Tough luck, guy. USA all the way!

The other night this Romanian guy named Alin Stefanescu tried to hack me. He hid his location by going through a TOR node, but somehow the good people at whois.com already knew him. This is him.
One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.
One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.
Interesting that I’d be able to find the actual name of the guy!
What really blew me away, though, was who he is. The guy is the head of the computer science department at the University of Bucharest. That is the best college in Romania, a nation world-renowned for the skill of its computer hackers and IT experts in general. I can’t tell you how surreal it is that a guy like that has been sicced on us by God knows who. I didn’t even know who the President was there until the other night.
This guy has an entire department of a university to run, yet still he finds the time to try and contend with me in these lengthy, endless, bruteforce attack and failed login attempts. Knock yourself out, guys, but be forewarned. WordPress is pretty good, it’s not just me you’re fighting. It is all of America, or at least most of us.
Even if someone is as big a fool as Lindsey Graham, who completely blew his hole about “Exposing the Whistleblower” and putting him in front of the Senate to testify, etc., it still proved impossible to turn a blind eye at Trump’s abandoning the principle of American security by leaving the Syrian Kurds out to dry as he has.
Tucker Carlson of Fox News made the opposite complaint. He was unwilling to defend Trump’s phone call with a foreign country’s president, Volodmyr Zelensky of Ukraine, but felt his weaseling and abandoning of allies in Syria was actually good.
Who knows where these people are coming from. Who knows where their hearts are. Hunter S. Thompson, who checked out in early 2005 rather than see what has been coming for a long time come to harvest, wrote in some of his last work,
“Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us—they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.”

We respect Hunter’s legacy and his choice; furthermore, who among us in the Trump era cannot sympathize? Everything sucks!

However, although we may sympathize, we are not going to wallow in despair enough to empathize. We are not at liberty to go that route. Someone has to be here for the people; there have to be voices of reason in the crowd. Stick by each other, folks, and stick by us. If you’re a Democrat, you never need to go into a fight alone.

The Spartan 300 killed twenty-six thousand worthless Persians, weak and puny slaves of a dictator. That’s 87-to-1 odds.

Why? Because they were stronger! They themselves were bound tighter than any slave to code, an iron law made of principle and fearlessness. That’s us, Democrats. If you’re like most of us and have lived for no other reason than bringing this whole nightmare to an end, fighting 16 hours a day, you know what it is to be worth eighty-seven post-truth Trump slobs, addled and made slovenly by Fox News. We will never give up, never surrender, and never relieve the pressure. Not until the end.

“Go, stranger, and at Sparta tell/ That here, by Spartan law, we fell.” -Simonides of Ceos

 

Impeachment Countdown- What Just Happened, and What Comes Next.

Donald Trump is going down, and trouble in the streets may go down too. Adopt a buddy system, folks, and organize every way you are able. Do not take for granted that nothing will happen- history has proven many times that it just may. We cannot let ourselves be turned into victims.

It’s official, folks. The whistleblower complaint regarding Donald Trump’s misuse of his power, trying to pressure the president of Ukraine into investigating Hunter Biden, the son of 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and former vice-president Joe Biden, has acted as a fuse, and the people of America are now making it clear that we have finally had enough. The House of Representatives has the 218 votes it will need to file impeachment proceedings and bring this thing home; the word is the actual vote will happen by Thanksgiving.

That means, in case you were wondering, that the very last moments of the 2010s will be spent with one of the world’s most worthless people, Donald Trump, on everybody’s mind. He’s already won, for his own part, because all he ever wanted was to be the center of attention. And now he is.

What a way to say goodbye to a decade that started out so filled with Hope and Change. Republicans like Scott Walker in Wisconsin hadn’t technically taken office yet; there was no way to know for most how bad it was going to be. One doesn’t have to wonder very hard how Obama must feel when he reads the papers today. The man himself was black, and so is despised by many he turned his hair grey to help. On the right and far left alike, his legacy was shunned and cast aside.

If anyone should be reading this who did not vote for Hillary Clinton, if you voted for Stein or abstained for the sheer joy of screaming out ‘Bernie or Bust!’- Know that this is on you, and resolve to change your ways.

Stand on the side of decency and moderation and compromise, and pitch in to help. We’re glad to have you; God knows we cannot spare you. But know this to the core of your heart: What you did back then helped to cause this avalanche.

This country has been getting torn apart all along, but this will be beyond that altogether. Trump’s base harbors many who want a war; things may really get ugly. Know who your friends are, be organized, and be ready. “There is no joy in this,” said Nancy Pelosi, and she is right. We should never forget that. It is a sad thing, that we should have to struggle to not rejoice in the downfall of our own president. Even George W. Bush and all his administration gave citizens of this country to reconcile with a troubled conscience, never brought us to this. We are living through the Chinese curse about interesting times, but there can be no doubt at all they are historical. It’s time now to talk about what has just happened, and what might be coming next.

Remember when the Mueller Report didn’t end up putting Trump behind bars? That was the end of the beginning, I wrote. The two have taken place on the same timeline. Back then, I predicted that Trump would think himself utterly above the law, after that. I predicted he would become increasingly more reckless and brazen in his lawlessness until finally, sooner or later, he did something too big for even the Republicans to ignore, or at least big enough to unify the Democratic Party’s many wild hearts. This incident actually took place in July, so this really is like a delayed effect drug.

The facts drove the timing and the decision,” Nancy Pelosi told POLITICO in a brief interview. “And that’s what I’ve said all along — when we get the facts, we will be ready. And we’re ready.”

Pressuring another country’s president to investigate the children of his chief political rival, Joe Biden, has proven to be it, folks, because make no mistake about it, folks. Those are the facts. That is why when the good news finally came that our national leadership was ready to proceed, we said impeach.

Back in May, the new Attorney General, William Barr had an announcement to make in the immediate aftermath of the Mueller Report. An investigation into the “origins” into the Russiagate investigation, he said, would soon be underway. He had already received a letter of complaint from Robert Mueller, who objected of Barr’s misrepresentation of his work. But that didn’t seem to bother him. Barr himself is now in it, up to his neck. His name is all over the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint, as is Rudy Giuliani’s and also Kurt Volker‘s, the Ukranian ambassador who just resigned this evening. The gist of the complaint is below, with thanks to FactCheck.org.

“In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election,” the whistleblower complaint reads. “This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals. The President’s personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. Attorney General [William] Barr appears to be involved as well.”

According to the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint, the conversations that led to all this getting going were started for that reason. So their counter-investigation seems to have led them into this fix directly, which is the clearest indication we have that Mueller’s work led Trump down the road from the probably impeachable to the one hundred percent impeachable.

A few days ago-before the whistleblower’s complaint had been released- I wasn’t so sure this was impeachable, because- well because it all seems impeachable to me, I guess. He’s done so much already, why is this different? Is this really worse than having colluded with Russia in the first place? Collusion isn’t a legal term, said Mueller- which to me was a great reason to keep using it. I never understood how welcoming foreign interference and having one’s cronies help it along could be called anything else, but Mueller said no. Who am I to argue, I thought sadly.

Then Putin comes boasting onto the television about how the Mueller investigation was “A mountain giving birth to a mouse.”

Even that mouse is taller than you, Vlad. I hope you’re enjoying life as the butler of Xi Jinping. That’s what happens when you stab America in the back. You end up sanctioned, desperate for influence and cash, selling your country’s oil to China, and ending up a BUTLER.

Garcon! We’re ready to order, you butler, you. Drive me a pizza over, all the way from Moscow. I could use a shoeshine, too. Now that Trump won’t be able to launder money for you anymore, you’re nobody. Pretty soon someone else will be in charge of Russia, and you will be nothing at all. Speaking of which, we now know Trump told Sergey Lavrov in June of 2017 that Russia’s interference into our election didn’t bother him. That too came out today.

Breaking news earlier tonight said that Trump has locked down conversations between two other world leaders as well. One of them was the new crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman. The second, of course, was Vladimir Putin. They’ve been putting it all in place for a Russiagate 2.0. Now, look at them.

Vladimir Putin is finding himself the recipient of bad karma, and so is Donald Trump. You cannot spit at God forever. Sooner or later, something will happen that reveals your human nature, and you’ll be forced to remember what we all must, sooner or later. You are human, you have feet of clay, and if you persist too far in your imitation of Caligula, you’re going to end up gutted on the palace steps as he was. Hillary Clinton popped up yesterday and said look, we’re dealing with Trump- the ‘Corrupt Human Tornado‘. His day is coming.

So here’s what we know so far. The anonymous whistleblower, Deep Throat 2.0, has had his complaint released and reviewed by Congress. It states clearly that Trump abused his executive power tried to get Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election (‘soliciting’), that he pressured Ukraine’s President Zelensky to do it for him, and that he tried to cover it up. After he saw what Trump had done, he blew the whistle. Enough is enough.

The document is seven pages long and details multiple efforts to force Zelensky to “Play Ball”. The term they’re throwing around is an old Latin phrase meaning “Something for something”, quid pro quo (Which Fox News is revoltingly trying to say is not in this context illegal, frequent molesters of the law and truth that they are).

Zelensky badly wanted Trump to have a meeting with Trump, something Trump was trying to work him on, and the latter had already instructed our vice-president, dutiful Mike Penise, to cancel a similar meeting on him back in May. Military aid may have been on the table as well, which may have something to do with the recent Ukrainian military withdrawal from Donbas, a key outpost on the front of their war with Russia. Nothing would surprise us anymore. Trump withheld their money, the Ukrainians retreated from Donbas, and four days later they got their money. Putin hits a lick.

Quid pro quo.

A hearing was held on Capitol Hill Thursday morning wherein Joseph Maguire, the acting Director of National Intelligence testified before Congress. The hearing began moments after the whistleblower complaint was released. Maguire said the case that was discussed today is “unique and unprecedented” compared to other whistleblower cases he is aware of. He also said the whistleblower acted in good faith.

No doubt he did.

The Mueller Report proved not to be so much of a mouse, in the long run. It pointed the way to Deutsche Bank’s money laundering problem with Russian oligarchs, which is going to be the foundation of our argument. Had Trump never gotten in bed with the Russians, had his campaign’s blatant collusion really been a delusion, Mueller- the nation’s top bloodhound-would have never had to write it in the first place, nor would he have discovered the true reason Trump was peddling Russian woo- the fact that he, for decades, has been laundering money for the Russians and was thus completely compromised long before the Russians decided to hack our election back then, in horrible 2016.

Trump’s plump rump is in a slump. He is not getting out of this one. He has played with the law as if it were a game his whole life. He ran an illegal charity, an illegal university, and an illegal presidential campaign. He got away with the last one, or at least, that’s how he felt post-Mueller, slouching along like a female warthog in rut and boasting. But as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, No lie can live forever. He’s still blowing his mouth for now, but that won’t last. Expect him to behave as a wounded animal does and expect the same from his followers.

 

 

 

How Bernie Bots Became Warren Weevils-A Far Left Metamorphosis.

Ah, socialists. Trying to disembowel us yesterday was a blast, wasn’t it? Just like the good old days, back in 2016. You swarming our Facebook Page by the thousands, trolling on behalf of neo-progressive ideas that would bankrupt the country, and my team and I refuting you for hours- What a wonderful way to spend our time! My favorite people in the world, the old Bernie or Bust crew, reanimated from the spirit world and filled with agonizing life and purpose in the Warren campaign. Perhaps feeling the Bern has turned you all into Walking Dead extras; made in the image of your maker. Collectively you’re like someone crossbred Frankenstein with a good old fashioned zombie plague. If nothing else, I will congratulate you all for your consistency. You’re the best reason possible to endorse someone else, especially since we’ve got a good man like Joe Biden to choose from.

Yesterday when we published an article regarding Elizabeth Warren’s awful decision to cast her lot with you guys, the Justice Democrats trying to primary good Democrats out, you sure were mad! It was like taking out a hornet’s nest. Come on, be honest. Didn’t it remind you of your bygone glory days? We were fighting for the most qualified candidate ever to run for president in Hillary Clinton, you were hacking at us with machetes made of (mostly false) data on behalf of the incompetent Bernie Sanders and his hazily defined “democratic” socialism, and together we all fell off the cliff into the Trump era. It sure did us. What a nice trip down Memory Lane it was yesterday, I thought, as you cursed and reviled me for hours. Then I heard you lot are planning to run a Sanders/Warren Warren/Sanders ticket. At that, of course, I became disgusted. You think you’re going to obliterate Trump with that combination. What you’ll really be destroying is the Democratic Party.

Marianne Williamson was caught on a hot mic by a disingenuous radio host recently, but what she said was priceless even if she was trapped into it. “What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are?” We could have told you, ma’am. You might also want to ask AM Joy Reid. She’s had her own run-ins with these people, and therefore knows exactly what it’s like to see progressives in the way of progress.

How it gladdens my heart (NOT!:) to be returning with you to those halcyon days! It warms my heart to watch you all put in your hours for the Trump 2020 reelection campaign; his best chance lies in silently pointing at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Squad not bothering to even say a word. You got what you wanted back then, and burned us all to the ground rather than suck it up for the good of your country, Bernie Bots. Now you wish to make us lions among lemmings once again. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, though. We have no choice at this point but to take the kid gloves off; you show us how necessary that is every day. I was warned by a friend during the last election that Vote Blue No Matter Who was the wrong way to go. Later I realized he was right and that your ghoulish horde had taken me in. This time I will raise awareness about you though the heavens fall.

As for the overwhelming majority of the rest of America, you friends of ours out there who know why American socialism must be fought without any hope of compromise, you all know what I mean. The only reason there is a prayer in hell for this country’s liberal, democratic future, the only reason we can even talk about socialism or economic inequality instead of going to jail or gulag or concentration camp, is because of the successes scored by “capitalism”, which is not a governmental system at all, but a source of raw power called the world’s free market. Saving it was the most critical, and understated, reason why the Blue Wave last year was globally critical to the dire extent that it was. Attempting to lock it down and place it under control of unqualified bureaucrats gave us both the Nazis and the Communists, and the hundred million dead bodies they produced between them in the horrifyingly bloody twentieth century (Courtois, Stephane, The Black Book of Communism). Socialism is best defined as a very bad way to solve a problem. Socialism is tying your shoes with noodles. It’s putting handcuffs on your horse.

People in this country have rightly abhorred a system in which government is all-intrusive and centralized unreasonably, which of course is what a fully planned, socialist society entails by logical necessity. Every aspect of the people’s life must be carefully chosen for them, according to the will of the planner. When this is the case, the entire apparatus of government, including Max Weber’s key ingredient of state-sponsored force, is like a house with keys, waiting for a master to come claim it. Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Pol Pot. The most vicious people in the history of all mankind were not so because of any genetic flaw inherent in their inner architecture. They were so because they fell under the spell of a strongman, and only partially because of his personal charisma.

With all a nation’s might consolidated in his hand, the strongman dictator can control the flow of data using propaganda and disinformation of the time we see used all the time by actors from Vladimir Putin’s Russia and Xi Jinping’s China. In both cases, their systems offer their leaders a chance to rule under conditions where he faces no checks and balances. Oligarchy, state capitalism, controlled democracy, corporate socialism. All are different forms of a hybrid system challenging Enlightenment democracies like America’s for worldwide domination. Over here it has been introduced to the public by kindly-looking faces like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and, most recently, Elizabeth Warren. She sold us out big time by sucking up the socialist Justice Democrats last Monday, then sunk the hook by holding a rally there the very next day. Raising awareness about Warren’s choice to step even further into the socialist camp is therefore a duty we cannot delegate elsewhere.

It should be accepted as axiomatic that socialism in America should be resisted at all cost if we do not wish to share the fate of Germany (National Socialism; Nazi is short for NationalsoZialist), or worse, Russia- which became after World War I the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. It should also be taken as a fact that the threat is very dire; many believe that Trump is doing all he can from the right to weaken and co-opt American checks and balances, just as Viktor Orban’s Hungary has displayed as a model. Orban, by the way, was invited to speak here in Washington D.C. last spring and did so. Two out of three modern states are not democracies, and in them, we see many common factors at play in our society, in danger of a democratic collapse unlike any seen before. Things revert to the old way of bosses so big they’re basically kings and the legislative body nothing more than a rubber-stamp to serve as the neo-king’s pseudo-democratic showpiece.

This can also work with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as Amnesty International or the Human Rights Watch. Intergovernmental organizations can also be rubber-stamps for dictators. Prototypes like the Communist Internationale was for the Soviets after Stalin’s time was passed. and the Reichstag for Hitler have given way to Iron Curtain socialist treaties after the war. The tendency of IGOs to be used in this matter is as socialist as both Hitler and Stalin were, which is to say, socialists right to the core. They each wanted to plan out every aspect of the lives of their citizens, and were willing to put them to unimaginable torment if they did not toe the line. Socialism is inherently built with that tendency inside it, like a time bomb. Evidence from everyplace on earth suggests that the result of planning a society, regardless of how noble and sincere the revolutionary aims of the original planners, economic equality and all, is exactly the opposite of what they were aiming at. Socialism has failed at every turn.

The trouble in this specific instance, however, is not even the merits and flaws of socialism itself. We’re not even close to having that conversation, but the Justice Democrats do not understand that, or any of this. That’s trouble in its purest form, and in copious amount. It’s been trouble for years, and we were finally starting to see the end of it. Bernie Sanders 2020 is a shipwreck and the Bots haven’t even been bothering to defend him or that for quite a while now. I’ve been wondering about that for a number of reasons but condensed to one they amount to this: reality has never bothered them before. Why now?

I didn’t get it until yesterday when I published a piece criticizing sharply Elizabeth Warren’s decision to ally with a Justice Democrat candidate in the TX-28 Representative Race. Shortly before I’d made a meme that stated frankly that “You sold us out, Liz.” Upon seeing this, they multiplied in thousands within minutes-literally. Under an hour, and it was as if we had killed an Africanized bee. “Liar! Russian bot! Stream of purified obscenity!” They were pretty wild, all right. Here is something sent to me by a Bernie Bot-turned-Warren Weevil today.

Why the hell have you dropped me from being able to comment on any of your posts? Do you not enjoy being called out to support your stance? Unless i get some reply from you guys, i will make it my mission to out you to the world for beings the bots you are.

This person, who we’ll call June Apple for reasons she will recognize if she’s out there, might want to listen up. Threatening people you do not know is very dangerous; finding your personal data took me exactly seven minutes and fifty-two seconds; suuuuuper easy. I knew it would be; you’re just that type. To prove a point I actually set a timer. Here is a look at what that means if you do it to someone more hardnosed or unstable than yours truly. It’s called doxing, e.g.getting targeted in real life for things that happened online.

June Apple- Age 670. Retired. City, State- Camp Davis, California. Phone number- 5**-7*3-73*3. Address: 818** Ho*g*ass Ave. Email address: JrApple15@yahoo.com. 

Hey, hackers who are after me, that’s her real data, right there. She’s a leftist too; knock yourselves out getting to it. Take your time, it will help you.

As for you, Ms. Apple, I am shaking my head at the sloven you displayed in making this sacred vow of destruction- and then warning me about it. Dangerous! Good God, Jim! Why, Lord, do you place it on my heart to educate my Fury-like persecutors? Can’t they do anything for themselves? Holy Moly, ma’am. If you’re going to make it your life’s mission to destroy people often, can you please promise me you will be more careful about it? I could have found fifty thousand ways to break your back for this; VERY good thing for you it was only the kindhearted me. You are a Democrat and as such I harbor no wish to shatter you; you were banned, according to our social media coordinator, for being obnoxiously pro-Warren (not that you were alone). Respectful dissent is welcome; viciousness and slander are not. Please, June. In the future be less of a slob.

Sloppy, slovenly and bloodthirsty; these are the hallmarks of the Bernie Bot, and always have been. Ugly as their conduct has been these last few days, it hasn’t been unusual. On the contrary, this was completely typical. The vehemence and lack of reason these leftist trolls showed during the frenzied attack they made left no doubt in my mind at all. The Bots are still around and there’s more of them than ever, they’ve merely switched form, like eggs becoming pupae on their way to Camp Warren. I propose the term “Warren Weevils” therefore to record and raise awareness about this newest manifestation of the same old loony left. Here’s what kind of feedback we got, before half an hour had gone by. Take a good look, folks, and ask yourselves in earnest: Is this really something that you want anything to do with? You can take it on faith that middle America will be horrified, though. You’ll be burning (berning) us right to the ground.

Bernie Bots have become Warren Weevils. Spread the word.
Bernie Bots have become Warren Weevils. Spread the word.

For the record, nothing is more dangerous than calling everyone you don’t agree with a Russian Bot, since this makes it all the easier for Russia and China to hide their true disinformation kits and blur the lines of truth all the more.

The situation summarized is this: the Bernie Bots and other sundry extremists have coalesced around Warren, summoned an alliance with their natural temperamental allies in the Woman or Bust sect that has recently been forming, and will soon proceed to try and consume Joe Biden, the lone champion of public resistance to insane socialist policies. This is why Biden must receive our vehement support, and at once. If the neo-progressives are allowed to fully hijack the Party, it will be a long term disaster. It will tarnish the Party’s reputation for calm strategy and iron loyalty once and for all. This cannot be allowed.

We had not planned to have to go this route; we weren’t going to declare for almost three/fourths of a year right now. It was only when I noticed that when combining forces, Bern and Warren are in control of almost half the party’s support that I realized we might actually be in trouble if they joined in full alliance, which Warren all but signed in blood last week when endorsing a Justice Democrat in her attempt to primary out a real one, Henry Cuellar. We had hopes for a time of Warren making Biden a good vice, but going down this road indicates a worst-case scenario. If a Warren/Sanders She had never aligned herself directly with the people who since the moment of their organization’s inception have done nothing but run down Democrats and make efforts to knock us off at every turn, such as Joe Crowley who was most famously unseated in an upset victory by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I predicted at that time that her strategists, who are revolutionary-minded, Che Guevara obsessed hipsters, would move in accordance with guerilla warfare principles by using Ocasio-Cortez as an outpost, a springboard from which to launch new attacks and further advance their assault on our Party. This has indeed been the case and could soon become a flood if we do not take the proper precautions. Starting now and from this day onward, tell everyone you know. Their rabies have hybridized and become treatment-resistant. Do not bother trying to reason with them. That is what killed us in 2016. We’ve been living underground in trenches for years thanks to them.

We must organize as well as we are able. Old grudges must be put aside for now if moderate Democrats like us are to succeed in holding the center, and this we must do at any cost. They are not capable of using the power wisely, if they get it. Retributive pettiness has always been the socialist way; Alexander Solzhenitsyn of Russia was given eight years by the Soviets in the Gulag Archipelago his three-volume book immortalized by name, for writing a letter criticizing Stalin’s tactical planning during World War II. This is what they do, Democrats. It just is.

Their ugliness, slander, and viciousness knows no bounds; note the hacker who most recently tried sent a death threat by email to someone else as recently as June. I will note that this is the most vicious and versatile computer criminal who has ever tried to hack me, and those are not words to be spoken lightly. They have tried to take us down everywhere from St. Petersburg, Russia to Hangzhou, China, more than a thousand times. Yet this guy is the only one known already for making death threats to other WordPress users, users we would be highly interested in speaking to and hearing the stories of. Here is a picture of what we have been up against, just today and with only one of many. Frenzied hatred. Murderous rage.

This is the most vicious hacker yet, also almost certainly from China; note and compare the timestamps in the photo; when it's 6 p.m. here, it's 1 a.m. there. Used Tor nodes so as to throw off geolocation. Only hacker I know of reported for threatening others with death.
This is how I found out that after we spent hours being threatened and spammed by Bernie Bots-turned-Warren Weevils the most vicious hacker yet, also almost certainly from China, tried to get us on their likely behalf. Why China? Look and compare the timestamps in the photo; when it’s 6 p.m. here, it’s 1 a.m. there. Used Tor nodes so as to throw off geolocation. Only hacker I know of reported for threatening others with death.
A look at where this hacker is from will give you an idea of his skill level; this is no Australian flower store owner like the hackers of the past. He uses Tor Browser, a naval intelligence encryption browser that gives you access to the deep web, providing total anonymity. Next you will see what an incredibly wide variety of assault tactics he is fluent in. Very dangerous to have a guy like this wanting you dead. Watch for the death threat he sent someone else in the next exhibit.

Watch for the death threat he sent someone else in the next exhibit. Real creepy.
And there you have it; a psychopathic hacker sending emails threatening murder. Whether or not you agree with me isn't the point. I am an American, your countryman. If Warren does win, these same people will be attacking you. Be careful, fellow Democrats, not to make a devil's bargain. We are not enemies in my eyes, just opponents for now. I don't want to see you lot get killed, even if you don't return my sentiments.

I don’t want to see you lot get killed, even if you don’t return my sentiments.

A good seven other bruteforce attacks have also taken place, just in the last twenty-four hours. Many, like the one you see above with no geolocation visible, are able to do that because they are now using Tor, unlike in the past when Russian and Chinese hackers would ping us directly from IP addresses associated with foreign intelligence services. They’ve got the KGB after me, basically. All for telling the truth to Americans regarding American politics! By now it should be clear to anyone with the tiniest lick of sense that the hard fighting will soon begin again. When it does we are going to have to come together. It’s either that or be obliterated. For it is time to make no mistake about it; we are one another’s final hope. These people, to state it simply, are preparing to engage us in a death-struggle, an ideological death-struggle, with the naked lust for power motivating them and driving on their efforts. They have ordered their followers to fix bayonets. We are absolutely all we have. For my part, I will work with and do ANYTHING I can for the people who are planning to be down in these trenches when it comes time to resist. Feel free to get ahold of us, allies, and if not us, somebody. Please get together, folks, and organize, for one thing is for sure. They are coming.

Stand as One in 2020, Democrats. The World is Counting On Us.

Stand as one in 2020, Democrats.
The disaster caused by the illegitimate 2016 election has widened like the crack in a dam during the Donald Trump era, and people all over the world are feeling the pressure.  A radical tide has swept over the whole planet, attacking like a hydra from all over the political spectrum, and the only thing holding it back is the strength of what has always been the bulwark of democracy on Earth, the United States of America. 
But they’ve got their guy in charge of it, right now. We’re in trouble. Bad trouble. Readers of this blog will not need to be told.
Lack of cooperation between the various segments of the left not only lost us every branch of government in 2016, which was bad enough. It also left the door open for all kinds of infectious diseases and poisons to wander in. We have staved this off so far because we Democrats have had one big advantage. We have always had a good, solid moderate core in the center of the Party dedicated to its upkeep and maintenance, and so we have achieved strength through our unity even in the two years we had no power. That is being challenged by the beginning of factious, tangled wrangling between supporters of one or the other candidate.
This cannot be allowed.
In many ways, I consider this to be the most important article I’ve ever written. This is a call to every remote reach of the world, a shout out to any and all Democrats on Earth, and it is coming from the gut like nothing I’ve ever felt in my whole life. Every cell in my whole body agonizes for it. Please understand and come to realize.
Democrats must come together. Now.
 Unity is our last best hope. Without it, we may very well lose everything. We could be flat on our backs for the rest of our lives, and subsequent generations of our children would be born into something like slavery. For the love of all creation, for the love of the whole human race, and for the love of love itself, help us to keep this 2020 presidential race a good one.
We are not enemies, it’s just the opposite. We are a family. We must become one in spirit and resolve. The requirements of the position demand it. The consequence of failure is defeat.
The 2020 presidential election has taken on an apocalyptic significance. American democracy is at risk of dying. In many ways, Trump himself has proven a bit of a softy, much more bluff than bluster, but his friends are completely vicious and he can’t stand up to them. He is the weakest president we have ever had in terms of foreign affairs.
At this year’s G20 Summit, the third one we’ve had the miserable honor of covering in the Trump era, he joked around with Vladimir Putin of Russia regarding their hacking of our election on his behalf. Putin looked absolutely proud of him, loving almost, as if he were gazing on the form of a beloved pet. “Look at him! Isn’t he a good dog? Look at all the tricks he can perform, right on command!”
Sigh. Trump may indeed be weak, but he has got some very rough customers for friends. We have the resources to fight back.  But we are in danger of losing them. We will lose them for a certainty if we don’t stand together.
The Democratic playing field for next year’s critical 2020 election is really up against it, in many ways, with so many different contenders. A little bit of chaos is unavoidable. So are we, the Democratic base, who will sooner or later be the members of one of their campaigns. We can’t waste any time, so now that the smoke has cleared a little and the debates have shown us who the players will be, we’ve chosen who we’re calling the Big Five. That means- and in no particular order, we are printing the names in the order shown by the most recent polls- Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. Beto O’ Rourke gets an honorable mention.
Here at Millennial Democrats, the choice appears extremely clear and obvious, as obvious as the big blue link above.
We’re going to stand behind them ALL. With everything we’ve got.
Democrats, we have to be ready to support the whole Big Five with equal fervor. We all have to be really careful here because if we mishandle the position in next year’s presidential election, in the four years to come after we will get wiped right off the board. We have nothing except each other, and that has always been enough, especially since we all have had the morbid pleasure of running into Trump and Bernie trolls and Russians and bots. Any of these people would be good at the job and a giant-worlds-away leap better than Trump or the Bern, Russian cutouts that we consider them to be. We’ve been saying this all along. All we have to do is keep walking in a straight line. Forward Together.
We have to embrace and get to know every one of these people, who are good people and worthy ones to the woman and man. We’re going to have our picks, that’s only natural, and that is fine. Just don’t get ugly about it and descend into bitterness and acrimony. Democratic solidarity is the final weapon we have.
Remember when we succeeded in pressuring Trump into reopening the government after the #TrumpShutdown? What a great day that was. Roger Stone got arrested, and as one organism we rejoiced. “Why are they (Democrats) always so loyal?” he bemoaned afterward, tail between legs and licking wounds. We pulled that off because we stuck together.
We have got to preserve that solidarity if we want to continue on our path to victory- and salvation.
The Democratic Party is our only hope. We are carrying the torch for the light of freedom everywhere. It will fall in a day if we give up. We have to remind ourselves of that as many times as it takes. We have got to follow this thing through to the end. In regards to the 2020 election, that means we’ve got to take the part of every one of our Big Five, these familiar dear good leaders who we all have known for years.  They are all worthy and capable enough to run the country. We’ll take any of them because we’re tired of the horrible Trump era! We’ve got little kids in dog cages on our Southern Border, and there’s no one who can save them except us. This is a crisis of more than material resources. This is about the country’s soul.
It’s time for some real talk, and I hope everyone hears me. This is only partially about us. Even us millennials- who, I’d like to remind everyone, is no longer the youngest generation of voters- are going to be gone in a few decades and all that will remain of any of us will be the work that we did for the cause.
We are going to be judged by the quality of that work. Future generations will either revere or revile us. In the end, there is no fate but what we make.
Speaking as a private citizen, love for the cause is why I do this. The sheer importance of it is too big to contain with words; I’ll just say it is why I will be here to the end. The cause, per se, is to advocate for the future wellness of the world and human race, including every one of us ourselves. Those are all that matters, and we’re the only ones fighting for them. Once again. We cannot drop the torch.
The cause right now means getting rid of Donald Trump, and that goal alone is where our loyalties lie, not merely in the persons of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. They have shown up as our leaders, and we are grateful for all of them, but at the end of the day, it’s the good old code of American decency that governs us. We will support those who champion our values, and loyalty ranks high among them, so please do be forewarned. We will fight as hard as we can against those who refuse not to get aggressive.
Democrats who attack other Democrats have already ceased to value anything. They are no longer worthy of the name. Look at the socialists, who voted in a bloc last week to deny these children of immigrants, so similar to themselves, the right to have toothpaste or wash their tiny bodies using soap. That’s what it looks like to be disloyal. Disgusting. If you’re not going to leave off with a grudge for the sake of getting children out of cages kept in camps, you don’t value anything. We cannot fight each other and still win. Bernie Sanders and his lunatic cult taught us that.
If for your own reasons you really cannot stand one or all of these candidates, but you still are a good Democrat who perceives how unbelievably critical it is to bring the curtains crashing down on the Trump era next year, if you really want to support just your pick, I get it. No worries.
Just please don’t go on the attack. It’s exactly like our mothers used to tell us, cliche or not. If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.
The Big Five will remain so until well into the primaries next year, and during the interim, we need to have good things to say for every one of them, even if we’re currently competing. You don’t hate your opponent in chess. You shake hands both before and after the game because your opposition is momentary. You will be united all your life by your mutual love of the craft. We all share the same values, and we all serve the same cause. So in the name of that cause we hold sacred in our hearts, we must now commit to forging ourselves into one.
Every Democrat must stand firm with every other Democrat, and more now than ever before, for the moment of greatest peril is upon us. The reason why is as simple as it is profound.
In order to survive, we have to.

We are living in a political landscape that is currently dissolving, and as it does every day presents new questions, fundamental and human in their nature, some completely new. As they do, we need to separate, observe, and classify them. Dissolution in chemistry means the breaking down of complex compounds into their basic particles. Scientists use this technique as a way to collect feedback and data based on the contents of the issue, and that’s exactly what we have got to do. All of us, not just this or that candidate’s supporters. We have to sort out what kind of a position we are dealing with before we can chart a good strategy, and that is going to take us all.

This is why we need philosophy, as an aside, Republicans like Tomi Lahren who keep cursing it like animals on Twitter, but then again, you already know that. That’s why you’re attacking these programs now at colleges. A University System in Wisconsin recently in the town of Stevens Point became first in the country to eliminate history from the roster of viable degrees. That is a disastrous indicator for the future of our species.
Wisconsin was settled by Germans, a people that produced the philosopher Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel, who said history was of the highest importance to a people of high civilization. Like Ronald Reagan, that great man is rolling in his grave to see what his ancestors are up to. He’s at the Headbanger’s Ball down there, and all because you Republicans are inflexible morons. We can count on you for nothing, and we know it.
Republicans of the John McCain mold have gone the way of the dinosaurs; most of those who had honor in 2016 are now Democrats. They have joined our ranks and we thank heaven for them, but for all those to be counted in their number, it seems like Trump has co-opted three more. Again with the hydra analogy. Hercules, at least, ought to be pleased.
It’s on us alone, Democrats. If we forget the past again, we have lost. We cannot drop the torch. We’ll just keep saying that, over and over. We cannot give up, and we cannot drop that torch. Not if the Red Sea should close around us. We have to hold the line no matter what. We’ve got to learn to be that rock in the river. Society itself may have to use us for mooring by the end. We must be ready.
Ethical, strategical, psychological problems are already arising every single day, and they will multiply like flies as this goes forward. Some of these may be completely new, and very difficult. Sometimes we run into a problem which is all three, like a recent one about candidates and what we will or won’t post about them. These questions involve the heart and soul of the Democratic Party itself, and we have to guide it because that’s who we are. Like chess, there are levels of difficulty engaged in the solving of these puzzles, but no matter what they are we have to manage it somehow.
If we do not, we will never defeat Donald Trump.
To us, and us alone falls the unenviable task of holding the center through the biggest moral crisis this country has faced since the Civil War ended. The Trump era has been a continuous disaster, an insult and an assault on. If we don’t find a way to get rid of him next year- if we, in the center, at least- don’t learn the terrible lesson of 2016 and stand together now, we may never stand up again.
Trump will be lawless like never before, he will have nothing to lose, even now he is feuding with the New York attorney general, and why? Because he is facing charges there as soon as he leaves the White House. State charges, which no amount of federal power can deliver you from. That’s a good part of why they didn’t pardon Paul Manafort. We know for certain now that they discussed the possibility of giving him a pardon seriously.
Trump will have every reason to kiss the impediment of our current liberal government system goodbye. Being a third term president would for him be the safest option. He must know this better than anyone. He talks about it all the time.
The monopolist segment of the global elite has been setting us up for this. I truly believe that. They’ve been linking up behind the scenes in increasingly ominous ways; just ask Jamal Khashoggi. From the right and left alike, they are coming for us. Every evidence points to this conclusion, like a giant red arrow of warning. This country hasn’t been a full democracy since 2017 according to the World Freedom Index. In fact, almost the whole world is yellow now, not green or blue. Trump constantly flirts with dictators, and Fox News jokes about his being one. Viktor Orban of Hungary, who was the first to use the new plan of discarding democracy gradually by democratic means, bit by bit, was just invited to speak here and did so this last spring.
What do you suppose he had to say? One doesn’t suppose it was a paraphrase from Braveheart. I doubt anyone said a word for freedom that day. This is not a game.
We know the far-right libertarians have hated the government that can regulate them all along, guys like the Koch Brothers and Vladimir Putin, the latter of which caused a stir just this week about how “liberalism” (meaning democracy) has “outlived its purpose”.
We can’t count on Europe saving us, either, they’re in a death-struggle with the New World Order section of the global elite themselves. Marine Le Pen has been leading Macron in the polls in France, in Germany Angela Merkel- the de facto leader and torchbearer of the free world since Hillary Clinton was robbed in 2016- cannot live forever. Britain is in crisis thanks to Brexit years later with compliments to their very own alt-right chefs.
The alt-right has cooked up a hefty pile for the final third of the states on Earth to still remain (mostly) democratic. Our allies overseas will be lucky to save themselves. 
Democrats, we all but stand alone, even now, against a rising tide that threatens to engulf us all in earnest. We are the only ones left who have the power to resist and hold it back. Knowing this in our hearts, as we all do, will we stand as a nation undivided? Will we fight for liberty and justice for all? Or will we close our eyes and play make-believe like children, squabbling like rabble in the moments before our heads go under?
Dictatorships using tenets of both fascism and socialism have supplanted democracy everywhere. It’s us and a few embattled others overseas who are still carrying the torch for the light of truth and freedom.
We simply cannot drop that torch.
We cannot give up now. We have got to stay the course to the end or succumb to a dark and bitter fate. We will be powerless spectators as they do whatever awful things they want. We are going to lose absolutely everything. We tried to warn the Sanders cult of this in 2016 and they did not listen.
If we make that same mistake, we drop the torch.
If the Democratic Party descends into squabbling now, there is no way to prevent this unthinkable horror. Our solidarity is our only hope because superior numbers are the only resource that we have. If we descend into fractiousness and squabbling, we might as well throw that torch in the toilet.
We’ll be lost worse every day. We will not have anything to fight back with. A thug class like the ones the Nazis had will grow strong enough to suppress all of us, and they will do so under the aegis of legality. History has shown us before that the right will stop at nothing to maintain a position such as this once they have got it. There is no way to overstate the case as to how bad it could be.
We really need to think about the Holocaust.
Our numbers are stretched already, thin and sparse, like a Russian grocery store. Every time one of us throws their hands up in frustration and surrenders, the problem gets worse, as do our chances of coming out of this with a country we can all be proud to live in. Make no mistake, either. If democracy falls here, it will fall elsewhere, and within a span of time that is likely to shock us, all that we hold sacred will be gone. It will melt into the night, like the state of East Germany.
Remember when we pressured Trump into reopening the government after the #TrumpShutdown? That was necessary big time and only made possible by those who remained true blue. All of us suffered great stress and anxiety, and many suffered worse. For the sake of an angry whim, and for the longest period in American history we lost five billion dollars.
Coincidentally, five billion was the exact sum we wouldn’t give him to build his moronic wall with.
His pettiness knows no bounds, he’s got the most dangerous friends there are, and he talks like he’s in early-onset dementia. Who knows what he might do given four more years unrestrained? We’ll be giving him a free hand if we all go to war with one another.
Conversely, and objectively speaking, look at all we’ve accomplished in the last two and a half years when we’ve stuck together! Democratic dedication in the age of Trump has accomplished miracles. It’s no small list, especially considering the Republicans were left in control of all three branches of government for four-fifths of that time.
We hit them hard last year with a massive Blue Wave, retaking the House and staving off a net loss in the Senate, even though we had twenty-five mostly red state Senators up for election and they had only eight.
We managed to save the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, with a little bit of help from John McCain. We shook the very earth with our efforts to keep Brett Kavanaugh, alleged molester of women, out of the Supreme Court when Kennedy resigned under corrupt-seeming and payoff-looking circumstances. Had Republican and woman Susan Collins stood with us, we could have kept him out. But she didn’t.
As always, we stood with ourselves alone, arrayed in ragged armor for the battle of speaking truth to power.
We raised awareness about former Alabaman judge Roy Moore‘s awful past as an alleged serial rapist, and kept him out of the Senate, and replaced him with worthy Democrat Doug Jones, the first time any Democrat had held a seat there in several decades- although that raises yet another example. Time passes fast, and Moore is running again and doing just as well as he did before- just like Marine Le Pen, rising in the polls against Macron in France.
We’ll have to hold the line again on all this stuff very soon.
We can’t do that if we don’t observe one critically fundamental rule- Democrats do not attack Democrats. If the partisan fighting over who’s going to be the one in 2020 is allowed to keep intensifying, far too many of us will lose sight of that. We can’t afford it. We have to put out these fires wherever we see them if we want to save the forest.
As an aside, and for the sake of clarification, now seems a good time to remind ourselves that Bernie Sanders has not ever for a minute of his life been a Democrat, which utterly excludes him from this statement. We consider him an adjunct of Putin and Trump; see the link above if you need to know why. Tulsi Gabbard’s a deal-breaker too, for reasons of foreign corruption and cult membership, but we’ll have to cover that another time. Anyone else we will fight for as hard as we can.
It is along these lines that our new strategy was conceived. From this day forward, our mission is simple. To stamp out the fires of bitter faction wherever it rears its ugly head, and not by yelling and blustering, but with reason and kindness and understanding. The sword of truth is forged in debate and whetted by discourse, and dissent is the highest form of patriotism, which means we need to be having these discussions.
They will help us improve the final quality of our platform, a full half of how we’re going win the people back from the ogre Trump. But they’ve got to be debates and not Royal Rumbles. Unlike Fox News, our goal is not to compete with other cable stations, but to find new ways to do good for the people of the world. That always has been and always will be the sole purpose of this organization. It’s right out there on our Home page. Check it out.
If any of you Democrats, our readers out there, should happen to disagree, I encourage and even implore you to write in so that we can begin to talk it out. If you feel like there is something so critical that it’s worth breaking our fellowship over, then hadn’t we better talk it through? In order to begin to find some kind of solution, I need to hear what you guys think the crux of the problem is, and what you think we ought to do about it.
We have to find common ground before it is too late.
We need each other desperately, and that means we need to inspire and uplift each other, regardless of what candidate you’d like to see win the chance to compete in the biggest election in the primary. These candidates and us, their supporters, have got to keep their eye on that 2020 ball to the point where we become an indivisible mass again.
Again, remember the Blue Wave, less than a year ago, when all of us were united and resolved on standing behind whoever won? It was the only light there has been since this thing started, and together we preserved it. Alone we are nothing, but together, we are invincible, and we need to be.
Who else but we Democrats are so determined to carry the torch for health and truth, in the face of these looming new Dark Ages? Who else will lift a hand in staving off the fall of our world order? The others are taking sledgehammers to it, and Russia’s laughing all the way to the Iron Throne.
The Pentagon just came out with a report that Putin’s plan for world “dominance” involves taking down the United States; just as in the Roman Empire’s final days, the barbarian hordes come from the North. It’s just like then, and there can be no doubt. Night would fall on the world in a day without us.
We would all of us be going into the dark. Together at last.
I’ve been thinking a lot about St. Augustine, the bishop of North Africa’s final Christian community, the Roman town of Hippo. He gave his life in defense of his city, an impossible task that he attempted anyway. His sacrifice has echoed through all generations to come.
Imagine how it must have been in those blasphemous horrid days. The year 400 A.D., Rome falling, disarray descending like an endless blanket of the chaotic, starless night everywhere that any eye can see. In the midst of it all, besieged and cut off on all sides, the small town of Hippo held the last torch that burned on the planet for truth in the hands of St. Augustine, the town bishop, no trained warrior at all. Determination and powerful faith gave his great heart an unshakeable resolution.
In the name of the same cause we all are fighting for, knowing there is no future but what we make, he determined to resist the coming hordes to his last breath, which he did.
Hippo stood before it fell, but fall it did, and in the final fracas Bishop Augustine was killed, murdered in the gutter by that era’s Bernie Bots and MAGA ravishers. But in the end, his victory reigned supreme. He was immortalized by his courage and was christened a saint. His example will stand as an inspiration to the final generations of mankind, and those who stood by him will be remembered and honored for their courage. When the stuff came down they held the line.
For the people of Hippo, the fight was unwinnable from the start, and after the city fell the final torch went out. It was not to be relit in Europe until the eleventh century, and the Dark Ages in between endured for three times the current lifespan of America. But it burned so brightly before the end that God himself must have seen it, and been proud. The story endures as a different kind of fire.
Augustine is a personal hero of mine and I refuse to shame his memory. I will carry that same torch through any storm I have to because that is what is needed. Our situation is far from as dire as unfortunate Hippo’s. At this time we can still win, and we must.
Refusing to give in to vicious cults, made up of sick members of global elites, is engraved in Democratic DNA by this point. We have guarded our gate now for a hundred years, fighting daily for progress and the people. The most vigorous political action has been needed to sustain us on our journey. It will always be needed. An active, informed citizenry must be present if freedom is to survive.
I remember how crushed I was the night of the election when it was read out to all of that HRC had officially been robbed. Distraught and furious, I felt like a wounded animal and lashing out in anger was all I wanted to do But my mentors rescued me from my own worst tendencies. They so fiercely demonstrated to me, in the beginning, their willingness to grimly fight on that my fury had been soon replaced by hope. 
They taught me what it means to be a Democrat. Decency, loyalty, and love. Not cruelty and viciousness. Those are the arts of the enemy.
Where I had been floundering in despair, they had been keeping cool, waiting with the patience of hunters for their moment to strike back. Plan B was formed in an instant, and soon I realized there were about sixty-five billion more plans after that, to be rock-souped on a dime when the situation called for it, cooked up by all the Pattons I’d been given as my teachers. They took a lot of time with me.
What heroes. You folks know who you are.
I’m the young guy who’s always hung out with all the older guys (kind of weird, to see myself becoming the older guy myself! Time to grow up!) so baby boomers have always been among my best friends. They come kick it with people of all ages. We all get on well for the most part and we get a lot of work done, together. They’re all old tigers, like General Alfred Joffre of France, who spared his country a defeat in WWI with his cool head and his counterattack. The Miracle of the Marne was brought about by men who are in the same position as us people of every gender.
I thank God for the dear good baby boomer generation, our parents who saved us from the draft, and who showed me the way to the only truth I know: No good Democrat could ever quit at a critical juncture such as this. When we’re needed to answer the call to such a dramatic extent, we show up, just like our parents did before us. They made the Greatest Generation proud. Now it’s our turn to do the same for them.
So long as the United States are united, surrender is out for Democrats- and make no mistake, having no discipline and attacking each other like beasts are the same as surrender or worse. Our souls recoil from the very idea, abomination as it is. We are not going to give over to the same darkness that brought us sadly here.
The 2020 Democratic candidates must become one.
I am counting on you all out there to help me help our leadership to Make America Sane Again.  Resisting internecine rivalry is no longer an option, but a survival-based imperative. We have got to start talking to each other, especially those who have already decided on a 2020 pick.
Again, our Big Five at this time are Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. We have good things to say about every last one. We have got to get together and form a plan, and that means starting a discourse. Please feel free to invite us as mediators. We love all of you. God, I could not mean that more. This is our country and we are all countrymen (forgive the gender reference; countrypersons doesn’t quite have the same ring.)
A discourse works best when there are people involved who are deeply committed to the results. The requirements of the position mean we all have to be both passionate and flexible in regards to their own position. We need every single one of you, and losing you is a tragedy every time. So please, Democrats. Hold the course. We know what the risks in losing are but look at our reward for winning too. Democracy itself might survive because of our efforts. Our torch will keep on burning through this whole mess, because of you personally. 
Stand behind all Democrats. If you do exactly this, we’re sure to win. But if they manage to divide us, they will conquer. We’re not about to let that happen.
For country, Party, God by all his great Names and St. Augustine, I am going to be there, and when I go I am going to kick the hell out of the wicked insane opposition and have some fun while doing it. You’ll be with me, and I’ll be with you, and we’ll be two fish of many in an ocean of deep blue.
I believe in my heart that at the finish line, almost all of you will be there with me. We are going to help each other stay calm and to keep all of our heads clear, and together we will hammer out the best way to go with this. In the end, we will have the best available. Trust due process.
During the interim, let’s stick close and tight with everyone. Get in touch with anyone you know who are participating directly in the campaigns of the Big Five. No Bern, who has always been Russian infested, no Gillibrand who stabbed Al Franken in the back, and no Tulsi Gabbard because she’s Tulsi Gabbard. The others are likely to remain obscure. It’s time to start thinning out the herd.
Today’s political reality says to me that it’s time to get behind them all. We need to tell them that they have to become a team. In a perfect world, there would be weekly strategy meetings held with strategists every day until the last day, because all involved would realize that this is only partly about them.
It’s about the cause. What were we saying again, about a torch and maybe not dropping it? That’s likely to be a good decision.
The decision as to who to support in the home stretch would be the same as our own model, to be made by consensus based on pragmatism and data, and all candidates involved would be deeply committed to keeping this match above the belt. They would be doing everything they could to help their supporters realize that any and all of them would be really good. Every single one is worth fighting for, with a full heart and spirit, and helping everyone to keep that goal foremost in mind is what we’re on.
For our part, we’re going to pledge right here and now to fight for all of them, with equal fervor in our hearts. If you will all pledge with us, next year’s victory will be assured, and we can begin the long labor of cleaning up the mess made by the radicals. Going forward, Democrats, please help us spread the word. We want to see a #BlueTeam2020, made up of these five Democrats and everyone else who realizes how needed they are. We are ALL going to take down Donald Trump.

Far-Right Resignations in Austria & Elsewhere- Rats Jump Off Putin’s Sinking Ship.

Far-right Austrian minister caught conspiring with Russia resigns.

The Austrian government has purged itself of would-be far-right Nazis, who were diligent enough to resign en masse. Every far-right Freedom Party minister in the Austrian government has resigned. Austria’s Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache was the first to go. He resigned on May 18 over a scandal he caused while colluding with Russia to subvert his nation’s government. They caught him on a sting tape.

Unfortunately for Mr. Strache, his transgression appeared over the weekend in a video from 2017. He probably wasn’t very happy to be watching it. It showed him on the Spanish island of Ibiza, offering government contracts to a woman who claimed to be the niece of a Russian oligarch. Strache’s party has a cooperation agreement with Russian president Vladimir Putin, just like Marine Le Pen of France did.

These countries, in our opinion, should not just let the Russians do whatever they want in their electoral system, which I have always disliked, but it does seem to help them not get taken off guard by this kind of thing. They’re used to it, and it’s not unexpected.

Strache is gone, which is both positive and sadly ironic. It’s sad he was allowed in that position in the first place. Austria is where Adolf Hitler was actually from, not Germany. It’s positive because, well, anytime there are fewer Nazis someplace, that’s positive. This, we can accept on faith as an axiomatic statement. But it’s sad at the same time, because, well, how quickly we forget! In Germany proper, you’re not allowed to go around spouting Nazi filth anymore. They’ll stick you in a cell for that, although it’ll be in a prison, not a death camp. Why not in Austria? In fact, why not everyplace? A prison is a great place for Nazis in any country.

They should be very grateful that not all of the rest of us are just like them. If we were they’d all be dead.

Getting back on topic, my guess is that what we saw Strache doing on that tape is something he knew full well was illegal, not just something “dumb”, like he tried to say on his way out the door. It was for the same reason I think Paul Manafort never left America, although of course, that is speculative.

He didn’t think his alt-right team was going to lose.

Keep in mind, this was 2017. The alt-right had it all back then. Trump was in office over here, having just begun his term. German chancellor, the interim head of the free world Angela Merkel was being severely attacked by that nation’s alt-right primarily by the Free Democratic Party(FDP). These were the chief culprits, of course. But Merkel was also besieged from a different angle, through Martin Schulz, a far-left, Putin-backed and financed candidate who was called the “Bernie Sanders of Russia“.

The list goes on. Marine Le Pen was still giving Macron a hard time in France. and Austrian far-right leader Norbert Hofer came closer to winning a major election than any far-right candidate has since the end of World War II. All over Europe and elsewhere, far-right militarists who were friends of Putin began taking power. Jinping Xi of China, whose state capitalist system is a more efficient version of the Russians, back then called Putin his “most closest, most dearest friend”.

Certainly, the momentum was there, and they were, for a day, riding the crest of a swastika’s black, white, and red wave. The colors were to replace those of America. They wanted this and dreamed about it, and they thought Putin would be able to get it for them. They even manipulated unwitting dupes of the far left on board with ripping up Democrats

Viewed in this context, of course members of Austria’s far-right would be open to cooperating with Russia. Why wouldn’t they be? They thought he was going to build them a new world, one they’d be on top of. Le Pen summed up their viewpoint very well, hailing him as the herald of what she said was a “stone in the building of a new world destined to replace the old one.” She flicked her wrist around the room with the utmost contempt, as if to indicate what Trump would soon be washing away.

Not long after, one of their guys, a nameless trash can killed a girl named Heather Heyer at a now-infamous rally in Charlottesville, Virginia by running her down with a van, and they all cheered about it, and marched around afterward harassing those who prepared a quiet candle vigil for her. It made them feel strong, to murder a woman. Trump told them they were “very good people” and said not a word about what he had done.

How strong do you chumps feel now?

That was all before the FBI arrested George Papadopoulos and kicked in Michael Cohen‘s door, though. Once they arrested Paul Manafort, and still Trump used his pardoning power on no one but Joe Arpaio, the sadistic Arizona sheriff who built concentration camps in the desert for the prisoners of Phoenix, they must have gotten to thinking.

Every time a member of the alt-right has second thoughts about putting their ideology higher in their value system than their behinds and bails, they inspire a few more of their buddies to join them. One by one, and finally in droves, their “brothers” and them all disappeared. Every one of them was a crack in the reservoir for Putin. Now that guys like Strache are actually resigning because of things he made them do, we can look for that crack to widen rapidly.

Sooner or later, that levee’s going to break.

As soon as the incels and other alt-rightists all see that he can’t protect them, they’ll realize they only have three choices, like in the Choose Your Own Adventure books we millennials read as little kids. There are all kinds of different ways to go at first, but sooner or later they all run together, and then there’s only a few, leading to the same three options every time.

Failure, success, or death.

These guys have seen now that Putin is not going to usher in the new world order. He can’t even keep Russia’s roads up, and even Hitler did that. He’s got a lot of money and Russia’s military is not completely worthless, but compared to the titanic might of the United States he’s just a paper tiger. Our guys can rip him up any time they feel like it, and now all these pretenders are starting to know it.
Given that, there are only three adventures to choose from. And we know how they end.
They can be George Papadopoulos, a young guy with six months in the can and his life back together already, mistake learned from and in the past. Or they can be Paul Manafort, nearly seventy years old and sentenced to seventeen years in prison with two other cases pending, undoubtedly with massive penalties to follow as well
As judges and juries tend to love their countries as much as others do, it’s not unreasonable for a guy like that to be frightened about what they’re going to do to them. Even if you’re a fair-minded professional, it’s hard not to hate a traitor. As famed Roman orator Cicero said, “A murderer is less to be feared”. We refrain from harboring that hatred for our own sakes, not for theirs, and they know it. 
These are all the reasons why, by 2018, the alt-right was dead worldwide. Over. Remember the American ones, the guys who ran r/the_donald on Reddit? Their leaders took their money and were gone like the wind.
Richard Spencer, for example. We all remember him. I’ve got an anecdote about this one. A former alt-right individual whose name I promised not to reveal had had some second thoughts and wrote into us one day on Facebook in a message that was then sent over to me. He spent a lot of time with me one afternoon, ripping up his former pals. Spencer was brought up specifically, by him. He said, and I quote with permission, “Here’s what I have to say to anybody following Spencer. That guy is a predator known for seducing the wives of all his comrades. He beats his own wife, according to her. You think he cares about you?”
Needless to say, Spencer joined known pedophile and NAMBLA advocate Michael Cernovich in being among notable alt-right figures who did not show back up in Virginia for the trial.
In the immortal words of 50 Cent, “Damn, homey! In high school you was the man, homey!
What the f*** happened to you??”
Those guys really thought they were something, all right, as if they were going to be an army of stormtroopers. Back then they thought they were about to see the whole lousy discard called American democracy go down in flames, lit up by Trump as Hitler did before him. As a private citizen, I did think they might try for some lousy publicity stunt as they did back then, coming to mock the family of the victim, and to stand without permission on the white race’s behalf to embrace a murderer, the nameless trash can who killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.  I try not to dwell on that day.
I remembered his name long enough to glance up when I saw he was up for sentencing a while ago. I read the article, but even before, I didn’t have to wonder if his “brothers” in the movement would show up to show support for him, guys like that never do. The only one there was his mother, God bless her undoubtedly tortured soul. I read that alt-right hero “Baked Alaska” was called, reminded of the upcoming sentencing date, and asked if he was going to show up to support that little psychopath.
Mr. Alaska’s comments on the subject were nothing less than classic. They involved profanity, the word “murderer”, and “I’m out by the pool.”
Finally comes Adventure Three, which ends a bit sooner than the other two. If Manafort and Papadopoulos won’t do, they can stay out on the streets, and end up being Jimmy Hoffa (notorious Teamster union boss who’s been missing for decades. Experts believe the mob disappeared him for becoming a liability. He knew too much, and the bosses probably didn’t feel like they could chance it. What he knew could have buried them- so they buried him instead.
A stubborn old man may not have much to fear in prison. If you’re an alt-right slimebag like Roger Stone who is playing at having honor among thieves and refused to snitch like Cohen and Georgie P., then by this time you know full well that you’ve decided to be Manafort.
At that point, you had better stop and think: How much do they trust me?
If the answer is Not enough, I’m going to be Hoffa long before I can get to Papadopoulos.

All those guys are thinking about this and weighing the equation in their minds. The jig is up, and they know it. Putin was a long shot from the first, but for a while all his rubles made them forget what they now are remembering in earnest- that it’s not going to happen for them and they know it. Now they’re remembering something else, too, something that people in mobs tend to forget.

When I get home tonight, I’ll still be just one man.

Sooner or later, this is going to backfire horribly on Putin, who has been a disaster for Russia. The country is in poverty while he and his pals fly around on private jets holding rallies on American soil. He got them sanctioned heftily, they can’t do business in America, and there’s only so much borscht you can eat.

If you’re a Nazi who’s looking for a job in politics, your prospects are looking pretty thin. All is not lost, though. We’re feeling generous today. So out of a sense of general human charity, a thing no Nazi can understand or legally display in their type of political system, we got something lined up for you, at least in the way of advice. Get out now, before it’s too late. Because if you don’t, it will be too late. And when this is all over, you are going to be cast out.
If you really want to hurt Democrats and help Putin and Trump, we can tell you how to do it in three words.

The Rising Threat of China-Spy Pleads Guilty, Trade Deal Possible-What Will That Mean?

China displaced millions of people to build the Three Gorges Dam with no compensation.

Sources told CNBC on Wednesday the announcement of a U.S. trade deal with China is “possible” by next Friday, apparently the result of a U.S. delegation’s meeting with Chinese negotiators in Beijing on Wednesday. The United States has the world’s largest economy, China is second, and we’ve been running into a lot of trouble with them because of it.

That makes this development very interesting.

The Chinese economy has experienced astonishing growth in the last few decades. In 1978 China discarded the dead principles of socialist personality cults and started a program of economic reforms. Back then it ranked ninth in the nominal gross domestic product (GDP) with USD 214 billion; 35 years later it jumped up to the second place with a nominal GDP of USD 9.2 trillion. According to Focus Economics, it is now worth $15 trillion to our $21.

Count on their trying to take first place.

The first thing that comes to mind is that we can’t trust either side. Our president is a moron. He made a fool of himself in Hanoi meeting with Kim Jong-Un, the North Korean dictator. The Chinese will try and take advantage of him. And because Putin and Xi are such good pals, it wouldn’t surprise me if their bromance turned into a threesome.

Trump’s juvenile reaction to the discovery of Russian interference into our 2016 election has manifested in his refusing to fund or staff the new cyber-defense force our Congress authorized in 2017. This is a big problem. There are other countries also who are out there trying to hack into our stuff so they can ruin and steal it. And at least one of these is ten times more powerful an enemy than Russia-literally. That applies both to military prowess and to manpower, as well as money.

The people who run Millennial Democrats have figured out how much the Chinese hate us and want to do us harm, thanks to the experiences we’ve gained while running this website. We started out in foreign affairs because of the Russians, and certainly that nation’s computer criminals have tried to hack in here and take us down many times. But even though we’d never printed a word about them, or even thought about them very much, Chinese attacks have been incredible in their sheer frequency.

The vast, worldwide right wing conspiracy Hillary Clinton spoke of takes a swing and a miss at Millennial Democrats.
The vast, worldwide right wing conspiracy’s Chinese division takes a swing and a miss at Millennial Democrats.
A look at his location.
A look at his location.

For every time the Russians have tried to hack in here, the Chinese have done so ten times, and we don’t know exactly why. Are they under contract for the Russians? Is it just that they hate what they call the “white left” that much? Or is it just that they’re out to eviscerate anyone who is pro-America?

The only sure thing is that they’re out there, lurking.

One attempt after another has been made recently by them to challenge us. Earlier today, ex-CIA officer Jerry Chun Shing Lee pleaded guilty to conspiring to spy for China. He got paid $100,000, and got a promise from the Chinese government to be “Taken Care Of For Life”.

This week, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that Russia works around the clock 365 days a year to undermine American democracy. But he also said that China posed the biggest threat to the United States when it came to economic espionage. Last year sonic attacks of a mysterious nature were used on our diplomats there in China. Both countries were suspected.

Last month, the Justice Department announced that a former engineer and Chinese businessman had been charged with economic espionage. They were caught conspiring to steal trade secrets from General Electric, in a scheme for which the Chinese government provided “financial and other support.”

Our current trade dispute with China is protectionist in nature. They keep ripping us off. Huawei’s entire router system was nothing but a blatant theft from Cisco. That incident among others led to a series of American tariffs being levied against China, and fears about potential economic damage due to fallout is obviously a concern for both countries.

Trump and Xi both have boasted of progress in the talks, but that’s what they do. It has yet to be seen if this is real or just another stalling device crafted from propaganda. What is certain is that disputes such as whether America will immediately remove existing tariffs or keep them in place as an enforcement measure to stop practices such as intellectual property theft have derailed a final deal.

Let’s be clear. We have spent a lot of time detailing the threat posed by Russia, here at Millennial Democrats. But barring any unforeseen disaster, and regardless of how much time they spend trying to bring one on-which, as FBI Director Christopher Wray recently said, is something they do 365 days a years-they will never truly be able to challenge the United States as a global power. Putin is a dictator but his country has no infrastructure, so his state’s autonomy remains highly limited.

For practical purposes, that means they can only do harm, not create anything.

China, however, has 1.43 billion people living within its borders, and total autonomy. They took the homes of millions of people away without compensation of any kind to build the Three Gorges Dam (which is a real hunk of junk, for all its size, it hardly even works). Last October they locked up a million Muslims, an entire race of people known as the Uighurs, without so much as a pretext.

Without warning, they built prison camps so vast out in the Gobi Desert that we first thought they were building some kind of new military device. They didn’t bother lying about it because they do not care what anyone else thinks. They’re so strong they can do whatever they want on their own turf, or so they think.

They are massing military force in the South China Sea, looking hungrily at our possessions there. They may well try for a pre-emptive strike, after which they would have autonomy in their entire region as well. Would they stop there?

Do would-be conquerors ever?

The Chinese are our only true global rival, and they’re working with the Russians against us. Russia and China have historically had rocky relations, but they will certainly work together to bring down the United States-led global order which has made everything possible for us all. Xi called Putin his “most dearest friend”; how ridiculous. It’s like watching a bad anime.

Going forward, we’re going to repay the Chinese favor of trying to hack in here all the time by raising awareness about what they are up to. They have become a predatory power, a foe not only of America but of freedom and democracy worldwide. That places them squarely on our radar. Look for them to stay there.

#BarrLied- Mueller Writes Letter Of Protest to AG Barr and Justice Department.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr is seated prior to testifying on the Justice Department’s budget proposal before a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., April 9, 2019.

The special counsel assigned to the investigation of Russia’s interference into our 2016 presidential election, Robert S. Mueller III, has written a letter of protest to the United States Department of Justice, due to the inappropriate handling of the summary of his report as handed to the American people by Attorney General William Barr.

He did it because Barr’s initial letter to Congress about the Russia investigation did not “fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” a Justice Department official said Tuesday. The objection was filed in a letter to Barr on March 27 and is indicative of dissonance between Barr’s prepared whitewashing and the truth. Mueller’s report was 448 pages long, and included handling of questions about potential obstruction of justice by Trump. Barr’s efforts seem like the latest, and most egregious, chapter. But it wasn’t unexpected. Barr’s son-in-law is working for Trump’s legal team directly! How’s that for a conflict of interest?

Barr is testifying tomorrow before the Senate Judiciary Committee and will be handled roughly by Democrats even though the agency is Republican-held. The hearing will revolve around his handling of Mueller’s report, as well as how exactly he reached the ridiculous conclusion that President Trump did not obstruct justice, refuted on every page of the document.

His April 18 news conference trying to paint Trump as a hero is sure to come up also.

The importance of this cannot be overstated. Mueller is not the kind of guy to stick his foot in the tornado that is this entire event without good reason. If he felt Barr had mischaracterized his findings severely enough to warrant such a letter, it is only common sense that we take this thing as seriously as he did.

Barr has blown any claim to credibility he ever had. He must immediately be pressured out of office, televised hearings must be held a la Hillary Clinton’s suggestion, and Mueller must be allowed to testify before the House of Representatives. Only then will the American people ever have the truth on this whole matter, and make no mistake. After all we have lived through, we have earned that. Trump is a crook, and we have always known it. We want the facts complete so that we can raise awareness about them. The path to regaining this country’s sanity lies only through this door.

Well said, Mr. Van Hollen.

“Hours to Days”-Ecuador Prepares To Rid Itself Of Wikileaks Co-Founder Julian Assange!

Julian Assange is getting kicked out of his Ecuadorian embassy home!

Julian Assange, the co-founder of Wikileaks (a term he is said to hate, according to Daniel Domscheit-Berg, his old partner) is on his way to face American justice, good and hard. Ecuador is saying he broke the terms of his asylum, and in the next few “hours or days“, according to the Wikileaks Twitter account, he will be asked to leave once and for all.

Word has it they have made arrangements with the United Kingdom authorities for his arrest.

Ecuador has not independently confirmed this, but it’s certainly to be hoped that they will. No one has ever more deserved it.

That would just be where it begins, for him. Assange was indicted here in America last year, for reasons that are not known for sure and are obvious. After he gets done with whatever the British have got planned for him, he’ll be on his way here, where he will be charged with a federal crime and sent someplace to learn how to be penitent, since repentance never came on its own.

Quite possibly he could go to our dreaded military prison in Cuba, Guantanamo Bay, for being a terrorist and an enemy of the American people.

Wherever he goes, one thing is for sure. Our justice system may now very well proceed to dispense great misery on Mr. Assange, who has made his living and career out of hurting and embarrassing others.

Earlier this week, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno said Assange had “repeatedly violated” the terms of his asylum in the Andean nation’s embassy, where he has lived for nearly seven years. He’s been in bad with them for a while, he took advantage of their kindness completely. He sued the country because they made him feed his cat! What kind of a man has to be made to feed his cat? Why not just do it?

Then again, why be Russian property? Why sell out the Western world? Why make all the days of your life about whining and malice?

Wikileaks is the organization whose release of hacked e-mails they’d illegally acquired from the servers of the Democratic National Committee spurred the supporters of Bernie Sanders to riot in Philadelphia. The entire Trump era was made possible by him. And in the end, rather than feed the cat, he spitefully let it go.

Moreno denies that Assange has the right to “hack private accounts or phones”. He has been greatly reviled for this modest request by the man whose life and freedom he is preserving. The deal was for him to sit there, shut up, think about where he’s gone wrong with his life, and above all, not intervene in the politics of other countries, especially those that have friendly relations with Ecuador. This seems reasonable enough, considering that they are a small nation, not in the least a world power. They really took a chance for him.

Latin America has a long history of resistance against imperialist powers, and Assange poses as a freedom of speech icon and crusader, so Ecuador took him in. Assange recently rewarded Moreno by digging for dirt on him and slathering it all over the news. What a guy.

Assange pretends to be nonpartisan and whines that he’s only doing his best to bring the truth to light.

The truth is that America is not perfect, any more than any other country is perfect. But it really is as my grandfather the World War II veteran liked to say, God rest his soul.

This is the greatest country in the world.

Without America to uphold it, democracy would disappear from Earth in a single generation, but let’s leave that aside for now. Even if we concede Assange’s point, and assume for a second that the service he performs is useful, wouldn’t it be nice to see it spread out evenly?

America is certainly not any worse than Russia, but Assange never has a thing to say about them. He has been sent many volumes full of dirt to dump on Russian officials and oligarchs over the years, but he never used any of them until after the 2016 United States Presidential election.

Shortly after, this changed for the first time when he released the“Spy Files Russia” dump. According to Wired Magazine, many outside observers consider the most logical explanation for them as having been an approved release direct from the Russian government, meant to defray criticism that WikiLeaks aided the Russian interference designed to help Donald Trump.

“These are tricks that the Russians were willing to give up,” says James Andrew Lewis, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who formerly worked as a Foreign Service officer and an information security rapporteur for the United Nations. “I actually thought it was a bit slow and belated. They probably had to get FSB clearance to release anything and that may have taken a while. Think of it as vaudeville for leakers.”

Before that, Assange and Wikileaks had never published a single solitary document that any Russian person might consider offensive in the slightest. He had always found some excuse, proving once more what we’ve been saying for years, that in our world today, those who scream and cry about America’s bad behavior tend to be working for Russia. It is no coincidence that Snowden ended up living in Russia.

Getting back on track, the speculative cause for this most recent development probably came from years-old private photos of Moreno and his family in Europe getting circulated recently on social media. Moreno said he believed the photos were shared by WikiLeaks.

“Mr. Assange has violated the agreement we reached with him and his legal counsel too many times,” Moreno told the Ecuadorean Radio Broadcasters Association.

No doubt he has, sir. Seven years, he’s been wasting their bed space. He also sued them for requiring him to pay his own costs, unbelievably. That’s all over now.

Hours or days. When Assange walks out into the streets, he’s going to get snatched up. He is soon to find out who he’s been crossing all these years. He probably still thinks he’s going to get a pardon from Trump, but one suspects he is not to end up in a cushy Federal Prison Camp like Paul Manafort.

America has a long memory, Julian. If I were you, I’d be looking for a good lawyer.

Tulsi Gabbard’s Network Means Thieves, Alt-Right, Radical Left, and Terrorists-This Is Putin’s Girl.

The more we find out about the junior Hawaiian congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard, the deeper down the rabbit hole we go.

Gabbard has something for everyone, we wrote back in 2017, in an article entitled The Tangled Tale of Tulsi Gabbard-Progressive Phony. And all of it is dishonest.

We were right up on the tip of the iceberg back then.

These days we’ve come across enough to boggle the mind.

The tangled tale of Tulsi Gabbard makes the most sense if you consider the possibility she might really be a carefully cultivated mole, used to leak data to our enemies. It would be clear that she makes for a powerful pivotal point strategically. The far right has often been able to use her voice and power to manipulate the far left.

One angry supporter of Bernie Sanders wrote the following nonsense on 7/23/17, on a thread discovered on Facebook. 
“No REAL progressive is gonna vote for more of the Clinton style, corporate special interest, Big Bank donor loving, false progressive garbage. Yet…here are the Democrats showing us early on that they haven’t changed. Ready for a repeat of 2016? Personally…I will work to expose and destroy the hopes of any candidate that the DNC tries to ram down our throats again by using Super Delegates and closed Primaries…and any candidate who remained silent against the DNC’s attack on our Democracy by rigging the election against Bernie Sanders. #Sanders/Gabbard2020 #Gabbard/Turner2020

This same unhappy person later went on to beg and plead for unity among the former supporters of Sanders- so that they will have greater success in attacking not Republicans but Democrats. Mentioned at the spearhead of this assault on their fellows in the left, is always one name- Tulsi Gabbard.

Stirred up radicals often end up signing off on very bad ideas.

Anytime they need their opposites to go along with some plot they’re cooking up, they give the job to Tulsi.

Gabbard often sounds more like a hawkish Republican than a potential future Democratic leader, much less our presidential candidate. She repeatedly blasted Obama for failing to talk about “Islamic extremism”– a phrase very similar to the pet phrase of Donald Trump, yet she’s supposed to be running on an anti-war platform? Give us a break!

Her views are often much more in line with the conservative end of our spectrum, as exemplified by her admiring relationship with Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson-who gave more money to Trump’s campaign than any other donor in 2016. She’s also a favorite of Steve Bannon of Breitbart News fame, who arranged the November meeting between the new president-elect and the Hawaiian congresswoman. “He loves Tulsi Gabbard. Loves her,” a source familiar with Bannon’s thinking told The Hill. “Wants to work with her on everything.”

Should this fail to convince you, try this on for size?

She’s a personal head of a Koch Brothers think tank.

If only this were fake news, thought I, and quietly moved on. The place is located in the Washington, D.C.-based Catholic University of America. ReadSludge’s Alex Kotch gives us the story.

“She is one of 12 advisors of a foreign policy center at The Center for the Study of Statesmanship (CSS) was founded in 2017 with a $2.65 million grant from the Charles Koch Foundation, which gives tens of millions of dollars to American colleges and universities each year, usually to fund ideological, free-market academic programs.” 

#FakeLeftIsAltRight, as one friend of mine likes to say. Tulsi’s ties to radical domestic fascist forces are virtually endless, and they will be the subject of many future articles. As the need for deeper vetting arises, we will be here for you- and prepared.

At any rate, perhaps we can find a clue into the peculiar politics of this enigmatic woman by examining her political career helping her father. Even upon taking the most cursory glance at him, Hawaii state Senator, ostensible former Republican, and anti-gay activist Mike Gabbard is a man who has had to do a lot of reforming.

The elder Gabbard has made a career out of evasion. With reporters, with constituents, and with pretty much everyone except his daughter and his old cronies from the days of Chris Butler’s (Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa) perversion of Hare Krishna cult, he’s been dishonest with just about everyone.

His daughter has inherited his ways. It is a daily reality of life for people in Hawaii that the Gabbards are into bad things with cults (there is over a hundred pages dedicated to the Gabbard family’s activities on the Cult Education Forum) and that they are libertarian Republicans in disguise.

Today, however, I was thinking we might talk about her ties to foreign powers, the ones who provide her with about 99% of her support. From top to bottom, the people most interested in seeing Tulsi Gabbard do well outside of the country are Russia, Iran, Syria, and literal terrorist groups like the Lebanese Hezbollah, groups that are the declared enemies of America.

Hezbollah, no less!

Check this out, from the good old American Committee on Foreign Affairs, dated March 20, 2013, just over six years ago. Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard was at this meeting. She has benefited from plenty of access to the highest levels of information on the Middle East and its troubled political scene.

HEZBOLLAH’S STRATEGIC SHIFT:
A GLOBAL TERRORIST THREAT
HEARING
BEFORE THE
SUBCOMMITTEE ON TERRORISM,
NONPROLIFERATION, AND TRADE
OF THE
COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
ONE HUNDRED THIRTEENTH CONGRESS
FIRST SESSION
MARCH 20, 2013

Recent focus on Iran has centered on Tehran’s quest for nuclear weapons, but the Iranians and their proxy Hezbollah also use terrorism to threaten global stability. Hezbollah enjoys the full backing of the Iranian regime. The Supreme Leader and the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps direct Hezbollah’s global terror campaign. Years ago, Hezbollah was a limited regional threat. Today, it is an international movement conducting terrorist and criminal acts in several parts of the world.

Hezbollah has killed Americans! They have taken our airliners hostage, they have bombed our embassies! More recently they’ve been in the news all the time, and why? Because Hezbollah has vastly expanded. They are now an international movement. You can get their daily update if you have WhatsApp installed. They are not independent nor are they truly a Lebanese movement. They are the proxy of Iran, which is to say a close ally of Syria and Russia.

Assad and Putin are able to call them up for anything. The leader of Russia has had that power from their organization’s birth. The current world order has been where it is for quite a while, and America was just on the verge of fixing it when they managed to tip the scales on us and helping Trump the Scam into the White House. Now look where we are.

In 2017, when Assad started gassing his own people, Trump fired off a rather puny attack on them, blowing up some asphalt on the side of one of their airstrips. We covered it at the time it happened. It seemed like a put-up job; Russian planes were being kept on the other side of the hanger. But even still, good old Tulsi was right there to cry in outrage about it as if it had been Germany crossing the Polish border.

Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont referred to her response appropriately as bizarre. “I think it’s outrageous,” he said during an MSNBC interview. “There’s a long well-known history, both in our intelligence community, Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders. Every single one of these agencies has said that Assad is using chemical weapons. He’s a barbarian, he’s murdered half a million of his own people.”

This is more than names and T-shirt colors. These people are monstrous criminals with even more lineage and history as terrorists with Al-Qaida has! To support Tulsi Gabbard is practically to rejoice and laugh at 9/11. We are the ones who designated Hezbollah as terrorists. She is flagrantly disloyal to America and its interests.

To think of such a person being the President of the United States of America, which as my grandfather used to say is the greatest country in the world, sickens me so thoroughly that even finding words to describe it with is hard. #NeverTulsi doesn’t quite seem strident enough, but just be assured I mean it very much.

So how did we come to this conclusion? After all, when she personally met with Syrian dictator Bashar (Trump calls him Animal, rightly for once) al-Assad, who in Trump’s words is a “Gas-killing animal who gasses his own people”, it was simply on a ‘fact-finding’ trip.

Wowie, thought I, but suspended disbelief anyway, long enough to keep reading, and look what I found! The two-man escort Gabbard used on this tourist outing were both fascists!

Her statement added she and the rest of the delegation had been accompanied by two men, Elie and Bassam Khawam, who according to the Daily Beast are both officials in the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), a political party and paramilitary organization founded in Lebanon in 1932, and currently actively engaged in the Syrian civil war on the side of the Assad regime.

They’re members of an anti-Semitic, cult-like sect that uses female suicide bombers. This cult is also known for handing vicious beatings out to journalists, both Western and Arab, and for supporting-you guessed it!-. Hezbollah!

They even got their flag from the Nazis.

Nazi-like flag of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party

Gabbard refused to say at first who financed her trip to Syria, but after the outcry got a little louder, she did eventually hold a press release. At it, Gabbard told us her delegation had been “led and sponsored by” an outfit called the Arab American Community Center for Economic and Social Services (AACCESS—Ohio). No one has ever heard of it. It did one other thing forever ago, sending the equally compromised Dennis Kucinich to Syria.

Leaving Syria’s complex and unhappy politics behind us, we head now to the equally chaotic area known as cyberspace for our next clues in the neverending goal to unravel the tangle of Tulsi.

If you want to know what’s up with somebody in this day and age, the first place to look is on social media. That’s what a private investigator will do; cut out the middleman. If you want to know who their friends are, and who is for or against them, above all you’ve got to go to where our illegitimate, childish president likes to give his warped Fireside Chats- Twitter.

The significance of the immensely popular micro-blogging platform cannot be overstated, because it’s where everyone goes to talk who is really influential in today’s world. You won’t find top professionals hanging around much on Facebook-actually, that’s how Russia figured out there was a hole where they could get at us through. They go to Twitter; look for the blue check marks to make sure you’re finding verified accounts.

What’s cool about Twitter is that regular people get a chance to speak directly to celebrities and to others from everywhere on Earth that people live. Arab Spring would not have happened the way it did if not for social media, particularly Twitter. To say the absolute, very least, it’s important.

Speaking of which, please consider following us at @MilDemsAmerica on Twitter! Help us to spread the word.

Tulsi Gabbard has more than twenty thousand fake accounts that follow her around and retweet her every word, and most of her supporters are not American. We can prove it, too, thanks to analysis tools provided to us by Twitter.

"Thousands of inauthentic Twitter accounts emerge when exploring tweets where @TulsiGabbard's handle appears (large highlighted cluster includes ~20K accounts) cc: @yoyoel @delbius @vijaya" Thanks to @GeoffGoldberg!

There’s a story behind every one of those little dots, every one of which is a Twitter account loving up on Tulsi Gabbard. Recently our attention was brought to a rabidly pro-Assad Twitter account entity named Sarah Abdallah, and the story around her/it is rather fascinating.

@sahouraxo is the handle she goes by, and even the most cursory glance at her Twitter feed will tell you, not a single day will go by in which she doesn’t send some sort of tweet like this one.

Lol.

Our friends, the good people, and research analysts over at MidEastAnalyst did an exceedingly thorough job putting together her background and past. Among the things they turned up was the true meaning of her handle, which language studies master and compelling journalist Joumana Gebara translated to mean something very interesting.

Sarah Abdallah: “from the heart of Resistance Camp” which means “from the Hezbollah Camp”! Clever, right? Double lol.

On the subject of Gebara, who is a truly inspiring human being, she is currently blocked by Twitter from accessing her account, because of the work she did to expose Sarah Abdallah! Please write to @TwitterSupport and tell them to give us back our hero! They’re usually a lot better about this than Facebook. Let’s give them the benefit of doubt in letting them correct their mistake; they might just do it.

The tiresome @sahouraxo aside, for she is just one among many tens of thousands, Gabbard’s a beloved figure among America’s radical left. These are not progressives, because they are too stubborn and mean and foul-mouthed to make any progress; look at what one of them said in this comment on yesterday’s article!

#AlwaysBernie Stop parading as millennials And leave it to the real millennials to continue berning your party to the ground. You are on your way out.

Not really, Crystal. Not today, and not ANY day. Our generation is NOT all a pack of Bern-crazed drooling freaks.

It just goes to show what we’re always talking about. They hate us, they want to replace us, and they will stop at no ugliness to get what they want. They’re worse than the Republican trolls, who attack the site here in maybe a one in ten ratio compared to what the neo-progressives do. And although she has about a millionth of Bernie’s name recognition, Tulsi may have more trolls even than him.

Vladimir Putin is a libertarian to the core, and that is how this all ties together. The Koch brothers love him in a sick and sycophantic kind of way; they think they are his equals. They see his wealth and power and they want it for themselves. They feel like the only thing stopping them are all the pesky regulations in the United States, and they fantasize about the day they cast them off.

That’s what libertarianism is about. Rich guys getting out of paying taxes, dumping sludge in the rivers, and stealing from everyone that’s alive. The Koch brothers and Putin are the biggest thieves there are and thick as thieves besides. The Utopian society the little anarchist guys with clothespins through their noses run around talking about will actually be one in which the rich are freely able to prey on the poor without restraint.

If they think it’s going to be egalitarian, they had better read up on what those funny guys at the Cato Institute are really talking about, and hearing where they’re speaking from.

As a wise woman once said, Putin is the head of all of this. The rest is tentacles.

Those tentacles are as international as it gets. They control vast amounts of the economies of other nations, including this one, and that means they control many of those countries’ politicians. A particularly chilling example is that half the entire economy of the banking hub nation of Cyprus has been filled with money Putin and his oligarchs have been looting from Russia and Ukraine.

They fund politicians routinely, like Marine Le Pen of France, who blatantly asked for more since French banks wouldn’t loan to her Nazi-like National Front party. Tulsi Gabbard is a softer-looking Le Pen who is in the same situation. She will lose 99% of her support the day she tries going against them, and she knows it. She is their girl head to toe. Not ours.

One of our contributors started a Facebook Page entitled Tulsi Gabbard Must Go. Great page, check it out. It’s a young page, only a month or two old, and still has less than two hundred Likes. And yet, not a day has gone by since she started it without a fake left troll coming on there and cursing and swearing and saying all types of crazy things.

They’re justifying their paychecks, but they’re also casting the silver bullets needed to destroy them. Most of them are not American. Americans hardly know who she is. She’s popular because she’s got the backing of the Russia-Iran-Syria-Hezbollah (RIAH) network.

That is the significance. This is why Tulsi Gabbard will never do or say anything remotely critical of Bashar al-Assad, or any of the rest of Putin’s toys. She also went to specifically meet with Trump just after he was elected. If she did she would instantly lose that backing because Assad is Putin’s boy. Syria is a big part of Putin’s scheme to bring about a global Russian realignment. He will stop at nothing for this.

Merriam- Webster defines the term “political operative” as a person who does secret work for a government or political organization. And no one can deny that the resume of Ms. Gabbard would be ideal for one.

Going forward, we’re going to get into this deeper and deeper. Tulsi Gabbard is so far from what a Democratic presidential candidate needs to look like that it’s ridiculous and horrifying both. It has taken on paramount importance to properly vet and expose this absolutely dishonest person. Tulsi Gabbard really must go, and we will be here to help see her off.
