Deep State Coup Underway! Lawmakers Discussed Trump’s ‘Mental Health’ With Psychiatrist

Lawmakers have called in a psychiatrist to discuss president Donald Trump’s “mental health.” The psychiatry professor at Yale, who believes President Trump’s mental health is a mounting emergency, made her case to more than a dozen members of Congress last month.

This appears to be “Plan B” right out of the deep state’s playbook. Yesterday, SHTFPlan reported on an interview with Roger Stone, in which Stone details the lengths the deep state will go to in order to oust Trump.

Ex-NSA Hacker Is Building an AI to Find Hate Symbols on Twitter

In August of this year, a white supremacist plowed through a crowd of protesters gathered in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. The attack injured around 20 people and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer. The violent clashes that weekend shocked Americans, among them Emily Crose, who wanted to be there to protest against the white supremacists but couldn’t make it. A friend of hers was there, and was attacked and hurt by neo-Nazis.

Candidate Trump v. President Trump

Throughout his campaign for president, Donald Trump attacked Goldman Sachs during both the primary and general elections, claiming the bank had gained “total, total control” over political rivals like Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He “accused Goldman of colluding with [Clinton] to ruin the U.S. and enrich the elite.” [1]

Trump even ended his campaign with a television ad derided by many as anti-Semitic, which accused the CEO of Goldman Sachs of being part of the “global power structure” responsible for having “robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.” [2]

Despite the attacks of Candidate Trump on Goldman Sachs, President Trump has seen fit to hire many current and former Goldman Sachs executives to positions that include three top administration posts, his nominee for chair of the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), and his nominee for Treasury Secretary.

Trump’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, is a second-generation Goldman Sachs partner, while Jay Clayton, his nominee for SEC chair, is a partner at Sullivan & Cromwell, which has been Goldman Sachs’ “go-to law firm for more than a century.” Three of Trump’s highest-ranking advisors have prominent Goldman Sachs ties. Goldman partner Dina Powell is taking on a senior administration role in Trump’s White House; his chief strategist Steve Bannon “loved” working at the bank in the mid-1980s; and his newly named top economic advisor, Gary Cohn, is the current president and COO of the company.

Justice Department Launches New Clinton Foundation Probe

Wow, that’s a hell of a one-two punch for the ‘lock her up’ crowd.

First, Justice Department officials announced they would be taking “a fresh look” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal home private email server, which was definitely hacked by foreign agents.

Now, the Justice Department has said they’ll be taking another fresh look, this time at the Clinton Foundation and whether or not it was engaged in ‘pay to play’ schemes or other illegal activities during her time at the State Department.

Cliven Bundy-FBI debacle: Another example of why the feds need to be leashed

The Justice Department was caught in another high-profile travesty last month that continues to reverberate through the western states. On Dec. 20, federal judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and others after prosecutors were caught withholding massive amounts of evidence undermining federal charges. This is the latest in a long series of federal law enforcement debacles that have spurred vast distrust of Washington.

Bundy, a 71-year old Nevadan rancher, and his sons and supporters were involved in an armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) beginning in 2014 stemming from decades of unpaid cattle grazing fees and restrictions. The Bundys have long claimed the feds were on a vendetta against them, and 3,300 pages of documents the Justice Department wrongfully concealed from their lawyers provides smoking guns that buttress their case.

Doug Casey: The War on Some Drugs

Longtime readers know that although I personally abstain from drugs and generally eschew the company of abusive users, I think they should be 100% legal. Not just cannabis. All drugs.

The most important reason is moral and ethical. Your primary possession is your own body. If you don’t own it, and don’t have a right to do whatever you want with it, then you in fact have no rights at all. That’s the main reason why the drug war itself is criminal, and morally insane. The economic, medical, practical, and many other reasons to repeal prohibition are important, but strictly secondary.

A rare and honest police chief

Today the average police chief is a careerist and politician with ethics not much better than a gangster.

They burn millions of tax dollars every year protecting criminal cops who should be off the force, if not in jail.

If the DEA pays them bounties for “drug cases”, they turn over every car at a traffic stop to find a seed or stem to claim a “drug bust” to get the money regardless of the injustice of it.

Trump Must School Sessions on Medical Marijuana. NOW.

School him! Good luck. ThaT man is pathological when it comes to Cannabis!
FIRE HIM!

When it comes to lower-profile yet critically important issues such as medical marijuana, President Trump’s own Justice Department has been actively undermining candidate Trump’s numerous, clear promises to respect the right of states to pass laws that allow for it.

This is important.

Candidate Trump was always very clear in his many promises on medical marijuana. In October of 2015, Trump said at a rally in Nevada “the marijuana thing is such a big thing. I think medical should happen” and then on a Michigan radio station in March of 2016 he said “I think that it should be up to the states.” Trump even went on Fox News during the campaign and said of medical marijuana “I’m in favor of it a hundred percent.” Trump’s support for medical marijuana was unequivocal and considered to be a solemn promise to the voters who put him in office.

Donald Trump On WWJ: From Marijuana To Torture, 7 Things To Know Before Casting Your Ballot

Keep your promise Mr. President and please fire Sessions!

Trump says he’s NEVER smoked weed, but he does like it

“I never have smoked it. I think it certainly has to be a state — I have not smoked it — it’s got to be a state decision,” he said. “Colorado did it as you know and I guess it’s very mixed right now, they haven’t really made a final determination. There seems to be certain health problems with it and that would be certainly bothersome. I do like it, you know, from a medical standpoint — it does do pretty good things. But from the other standpoint, I think that should be up to the states. Certainly, from a medical standpoint, a lot of people are liking it.”

Trump's Slams Iran About Human Rights, but Spares Allies

In publicly condemning Iran for its reaction to the protests of the past week, President Trump has repeatedly made reference to human rights concerns. Human rights is not an issue often mentioned by the administration.

The issue of Iran jailing protesters, and using force against some of them, is a concern that’s hardly unique to Iran, President Trump himself has provoked larger protests in Palestine, and Israel’s crackdown has involved similar mass arrests and several killings.

Countries like Egypt and Saudi Arabia similarly have what would be fairly described as calamitous human rights records, but neither has faced serious criticism from President Trump either.

Bombshell: FBI Believed Crimes Were Committed by Hillary Clinton and Aides

According to a bombshell new report from The Hill, Republicans seated on congressional investigation committees have found new information that could trigger the Justice Department to re-open the Hillary Clinton email case. Citing “irregularities and contradictions” within the original FBI investigation, insiders told The Hill that it is becoming ever clearer that the former Secretary of State received a “Get Out of Jail Free” card on her way to becoming the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

Huma Abedin, the trusted Islamic Brotherhood connected personal aide…

Remember Huma Abedin, Hillary Clintons trusted Islamic Brotherhood connected personal aide? She actually forwarded State Dept. passwords to her personal Yahoo account before it was casually perused by Russian agents. This means the compromised sites were not in fact hacked but were simply opened as one would open a refrigerator door and peek in. Corruption for money runs deep in the Clinton Foundation. Huma was not Interrogated by the FBI, just interviewed. Her lap top computer, according to James Comey, was simply destroyed. No charges were made against her or anyone else. The depth of Hillary’s protection is breathtaking.

McConnell endorses Trump's criticism of Bannon

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is throwing his support behind President Trump's blistering comments about Stephen Bannon.

"I'd like to associate myself with what the president had to say about Steve Bannon yesterday," McConnell told reporters on Thursday, asked about Bannon's comments in a forthcoming book that a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer was "unpatriotic."

Trump broke with Bannon, his former chief strategist, during an explosive statement on Wednesday saying he had "lost his mind” and accused him of being “only in it for himself.”

Bannon has repeatedly lashed out at McConnell, saying he should resign and predicting that he would lose his spot in Senate leadership—despite wide support from the caucus.

Top 5 Stories Buried Or Deliberately Ignored By Mainstream Media In 2017

As public trust in the mainstream media continues to fall to a new all-time low each year, it may come as no surprise that the same outlets promising to provide you with “fair and balanced” coverage, are actually censoring truth and feeding you content that is approved by their social interests. However, as social media becomes more prevalent, it is even more obvious when the MSM ignores the most crucial stories. Here are the top 5 stories the mainstream media missed in 2017:

PROPOSAL BY FRANCE'S MACRON TO BAN "FAKE NEWS" DENOUNCED AS RECIPE FOR DISASTER

"From the start," warned journalist Glenn Greenwald on Thursday in response the proposal by French President Emmanuel Macron, the phrase "fake news" has been used as a "rhetorical term with no definition, ensuring abuse. First, Trump appropriated it to attack journalism. Now Macron is exploiting it to obtain government control over the internet. Terms that lack definition are propaganda."

SOME BANNON-BACKED SENATE HOPEFULS BEGIN DISTANCING THEMSELVES AMID TRUMP FEUD

Republican Senate candidates endorsed by Steve Bannon began slowly distancing themselves from the former White House chief strategist Wednesday after President Donald Trump said Bannon had "lost his mind."

Two Bannon-backed candidates downplayed the importance of his support and underscored their commitment to Trump's agenda.

In Arizona, a spokesman for Kelli Ward -- the conservative that hard-liner Bannon backed even as leading GOP strategists and Trump himself attempted to recruit someone else into the race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake -- cast Bannon's endorsement as unimportant.

"Steve Bannon is only one of many high-profile endorsements Dr. Ward has received. Her focus remains on winning this race, which she is in a great position to do, and then helping President Trump advance an America First agenda," Ward press secretary Zachery Henry said.

HILLARY THE SPY?

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

Justice Department ‘Looking Into’ Hillary Clinton’s Emails— Again

Justice Department officials are taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she served as secretary of State, The Daily Beast has learned.

An ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is familiar with the thinking at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters described it as an effort to gather new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material. Officials’ questions include how much classified information was sent over Clinton’s server; who put that information into an unclassified environment, and how; and which investigators knew about these matters and when. The Sessions ally also said officials have questions about immunity agreements that Clinton aides may have made.

Democrats’ bogus “Trump-Russia collusion” now FALLING APART, so the NY Times is trying to CHANGE the narrative

Writing at National Review Online, McCarthy says he believes the Times’ transition from Page to Papadopoulos is part of an effort by the paper to help Democrats cover up the real reason behind the FBI’s probe: The bogus “Trump dossier,” a position shared by a growing number of Republicans in Congress.

“Slowly but surely, it has emerged that the Justice Department and FBI very likely targeted Page because of the Steele dossier, a Clinton-campaign opposition-research screed disguised as intelligence reporting. Increasingly, it appears that the Bureau failed to verify Steele’s allegations before the DOJ used some of them to bolster an application for a spying warrant from the FISA court (i.e., the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court),” he wrote in this week’s column for the magazine.

FBI exonerated Clinton before getting key evidence, report says

Top FBI agents who were part of just a small circle at the bureau’s headquarters investigating Hillary Clinton’s private email server were preparing to exonerate the Democratic presidential candidate long before they finished gathering critical evidence and witness accounts, a new report reveals.

The proof, according to a published report by The Hill Wednesday, provided damning evidence showing that Clinton’s handling of her emails was potentially criminal conduct.

The report suggested that congressional investigators had written evidence showing that the FBI believed that Clinton and her top aides broke some laws by transmitting classified information through her insecure private email server.

When asked for comment, an FBI source directed Fox News to former FBI Director James Comey’s July 5, 2016 statement, in which he seemed to acknowledge possible criminality but said it wasn’t enough to charge the then-presidential candidate.

GOP Lawmakers Find New Irregularities In FBI’s Handling Of Clinton Email Probe

GOP lawmakers say their investigation found new irregularities in the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Congressional investigators say the FBI had found that a “sheer volume” of classified information was received and sent from the non-secure private server.

The bureau did have proof of Clinton’s criminal wrongdoing, but went on to draft an exoneration statement before the email probe was complete.

This comes after lawmakers reviewed highly redacted FBI documents related to the Clinton email probe.
