Government and Military’s Faithfulness to Constitutional Oaths

By Scott Lazarowitz

Should those working in government and military be expected to obey the U.S. Constitution they have sworn to support and defend?

For instance, in domestic policy Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to enforce federal drug laws even in states whose voters approved of some drug legalization, a violation of the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment regarding policing authority. The Constitution doesn’t even authorize the federal government to get involved in drugs, period. The AG is also violating the due process clause when he directs law enforcement to steal cash from citizens regardless of whether they are charged with any crimes.

And when it comes to foreign policy, even the military and its Uniform Code are clear on the ideas of swearing or affirming to support the U.S. Constitution and following lawful orders...

Salon: Russians Didn't Hack the DNC

The July 5th download is thought by some to have been done by DNC data administrator, Seth Rich. The investigators found that on that day 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded in 87 seconds.

What does that mean? It means that far exceeds an internet capability for a remote hack – much less a transoceanic one.

As Skip Folden told The Nation:

“Based on the data we now have, what we’ve been calling a hack is impossible.”

“Start Throwing Rocks”: Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This definitely smacks of Deep State manipulation, in order to see more unrest, which ultimately will result in President Trump being pressured to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and establish martial law, nationally.

More violence will only beget more violence; I cannot believe, for one moment, that Dr. N.D.B. Collins really believes this is the right path to follow.

But agents of the Deep State can come from surprising backgrounds, and have some interesting agendas.

It appears that whoever is sponsoring this article at the Washington Compost, is hoping such violence will have President Trump invoke martial law, so that
the warmongers in President Trump's cabinet, can get their wars on, with even peaceful protest forbidden.

Amazon’s stock market value lost as much as $5 billion during premarket trading after President Donald Trump tweeted that the online giant does “great damage to tax paying retailers.” Trump has long accused Amazon of not paying its fair share of taxes.

Freedom for Speech (Especially the speech you hate)

The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to encourage open, wide, robust debate about the policies of the government and the people who run it. It would be antithetical to that purpose for the government itself to decide what speech is acceptable and what is not in public discourse.

The U.S. Military Will Be Conducting ‘A Major Military Exercise’ On The Korean Peninsula During The Solar Eclipse

The U.S. military is preparing to launch a major military exercise with South Korea in coming days, and faces a dangerous balancing act: How do you reassure allies in the region that you are ready for a war with North Korea without provoking an actual conflict in the process?

Equality, Justice And The First Amendment

For all people of good will—regardless of party affiliation, race, creed, or color—the events that took place this weekend in Charlottesville were sickening and deeply disturbing.

Several clear themes emerged for me this weekend. And while they are pretty obvious, I thought I would share them with the broader ACLU community, in an effort to give voice to what many of us are feeling and to spark a further discussion that will allow us to move together with greater hope and resolve through what are likely to be troubling days ahead.

“Healthcare Is Completely Overpriced And Out Of Control” Four Free Market Alternatives To Obamacare

While President Trump may have run on a platform of repealing and replacing Obamacare, it is becoming clear that neither Democrats or Republicans are prepared to fix America’s failing healthcare system. As Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple explains in the video report below, insurance costs for a family of four are now comparable to that of a monthly home mortgage, making it nearly impossible to afford for most.

Americans are Rapidly Descending Into Madness

What’s worse, this environment is providing a backdrop for the most destructive people of my lifetime — neoconservatives and neo liberals — to preen around on corporate media as “the voices of reason.” This is one of the most perverse and dangerous side-effects of the current political climate.

If war comes, don’t blame the ‘Military-Industrial Complex’ — things are even worse than you think

The Soviet nomenklatura gave up without a fight. It’s unlikely its American counterpart will. Whether Trump in the end decides to fight or to seek accommodation is still under debate. Some suggest that by signing the recent bill imposing sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea, he has already surrendered. But either way, war or not, things are going to get very rocky.

NDP moves to end secret Klein-era scheme to offload corporate losses on the public

No one should be surprised that as its final decade approached, Alberta's Progressive Conservative government cut a secret and illegal deal with a small group of electricity marketing companies to let them leave the province's consumers holding the bag for billions of dollars in the event the dice ever failed to roll their way.

Indeed, no one is very surprised, as you can tell from reading between the lines of the oh-so-cautious mainstream media coverage of the NDP Government's lawsuit, launched in the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench yesterday, to invalidate a secretly negotiated clause in Tory-passed legislation that allowed corporations to offload business losses in the electricity market onto the public.

‘No Way Can We Accept Racism’: Sessions Fails To Assuage Anger Over Trump's Charlottesville Response

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has condemned racism and bigotry amid criticism of President Donald Trump’s reaction to the violence in Charlottesville. Sessions made the comments during a speech against sanctuary cities.

“In no way can we accept or apologize for racism, bigotry, hatred or violence,” Sessions said Wednesday, referring to the violence in Charlottesville this weekend where white nationalists were confronted by counter-protesters, one of whom was killed.

Young Turks Bought Up by Clinton/Obama Backers, Vulture Capitalists and unDemocratic Party “kingmaker” for $20 Million

Cenk Uygur is trying to play it cool, telling his followers this is not a big deal when in fact it is. Well, Cenk has been a tool of the establishment, trying to pretend he isn’t for years. His Youtube empire, the Young Turks, was started with seed money from a centrist republican years ago and Cenk has been pushing the centrist message ever since. You have to remember, when Cenk was on MSNBC he spread Clinton’s lies about Gaddafi on a daily basis, doing his level best to convince progressives to tacitly support her illegal and immoral regime change operation in Libya. And he’s done the same shit ever since.

So Cenk Uygur has always been a sellout piece of shit… now he’s just sold out more.

"DEFCON 1-Level Bad": Uproar After Steve Bannon Gets Loose With Lefty Magazine

In the wake of a site-crashing interview with the founder and editor of The American Prospect—in which he talked about administration in-fighting, tensions with North Korea, looming economic war with China, and his high hopes for Democrat’s focus on identity politics—top Trump advisor Steve Bannon, according to responses gathered by Axios, is possibly in pretty deep(er) shit just about now with his White House colleagues.

Scott Adams Tells You How to Know When You Are in a Mass Hysteria Bubble

History is full of examples of Mass Hysterias. They happen fairly often. The cool thing about mass hysterias is that you don’t know when you are in one. But sometimes the people who are not experiencing the mass hysteria can recognize when others are experiencing one, if they know what to look for.

I’ll teach you what to look for.

Theresa May has rejected an appeal from survivors of the 9/11 attacks to make public a suppressed report into the role of Saudi Arabia in funding Islamist extremism in the UK. Earlier this summer, the British government announced it had decided not to publish the information, citing national security reasons and the “vast amount of personal information” it contained.

Big Plans On The Hard Left For November 4

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn.

Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government.

Trump Says “Military Option” On The Table For Venezuela; Provokes Statement From Russia

By Brandon Turbeville

The United States has finally rattled its sabers loud enough against Venezuela that it has provoked a response from Russia. After imposing yet another round of sanctions upon an already economically embattled nation following a questionable Venezuelan move to reassemble the Western-backed opposition-dominated National Assembly, the U.S. is grandstanding yet again about “democracy,” “human rights,” and all the other things America tends to ignore except when it is able to use those concepts to justify foreign wars...

Charlottesville: Outrage, Hypocrisy & Obama’s Betrayal

It is simply untrue to claim that the United States has a problem with white supremacy. It is untrue because the United States is synonymous with white supremacy; it is a nation founded and established by white supremacists, whose constitution was written by white supremacists, and in which white supremacy is wedded into the cultural and social fabric, not forgetting its very institutions.

No, Affirmative Action Isn’t Keeping White Students Down

There’s a saying: “When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.”

I thought of that when I heard about the Trump administration’s recent moves against affirmative action.

According to The New York Times, the Department of Justice, led by Attorney General Jeff Session, is looking for lawyers to work on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”

Centrist Pundits Paved Way For Trump’s ‘Alt-Left’ False Equivalence

President Donald Trump sparked outrage Tuesday afternoon after he equated Nazis and counter-protesters in Charlottesville. To do so, he referred to the anti-racist activists as the “alt-left,” with the implication that they were the equivalent of the “alt-right,” two sides to the same coin, showing there was, in his words, evil “on both sides.”

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.

What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all? A new report raises questions media and Democrats would rather ignore

Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, when the DNC embraces a false narrative, it embraces it all the way!!

FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.

Why?

FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

Late Saturday, the Justice Department announced the federal probe. The investigation, spearheaded by the Richmond, VA FBI field office, was launched after an Ohio man drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators killing one woman and injuring dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sickens me.

IF, in fact, paid FBI agents were actually here, what was their function, other than intel?!?

Was it to worsen the mood of the mob to the point where violence would be the inevitable result?!?

At this moment, if there was an FBI order to foment rage and rioting on the part of these informants, whoever gave that order person needs to be sacked, immediately, and publicly, by President Trump.

Because in allowing these riots to move forward, it caused deaths, massive injuries, and deeply scarred the soul of this nation in a way that it might not be able to ultimately survive or overcome.

To Katch a Klansman: FBI Informant Behind Recent KKK Fliers in Raleigh

July 20, 2016 – Fliers distributed in Raleigh and other North Carolina cities last weekend urging residents to join the Ku Klux Klan are part of an apparent nationwide recruiting drive for the white supremacist organization with one minor twist: the phone number and websites listed trace back to a Klan chapter whose leader is a reported FBI informant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised here?!?

This is a highly scripted insurgency on the part of this government to topple its President, and by any means necessary.

Gingrich: ‘President Trump is telling Americans the truth and the elite media and left hate it’

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich hit the nail on the head Tuesday evening when he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that both the left and the right came to Charlottesville to create violence as the American Civil Liberties Union had already pointed out on their twitter feed and that the “elite media” are fabricating a “big lie.”

“The truth is, President Trump is telling the American people the truth and the elite media hates it and the left hates it and he’s going right at the heart of the big lie on the left,” the former Speaker said. “Most of the violence we have seen politically this year has been on the left.”
