Thought for the day

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." -- Buckminster Fuller

Adsupply

A reasonable question. Monday’s FBI raid at Trump’s Mar A Lago was very strange. Unlike previous FBI hits on people linked to Trump, such as Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, the establishment media was kept in the dark. They did not get a heads up. How did we learn about the raid? Trump announced it via his social media page around 1830 hours edt on Monday. Very strange.

Think about this. Not a single soul in the Trump universe who knew about the raid at Mar A Lago breathed a word about this unholy assault. Not one. And, surprisingly, the FBI kept its mouth shut. There is something more to this.

Full disclosure. I once respected the FBI. I coordinated with Floyd Clarke, the FBI’s Deputy Director in 1990 on the State Department’s Terrorism Rewards Program. I met Floyd at the Friar’s Club in NY City in the summer of 1990 and we discussed the upcoming public service ads that I was producing. Floyd was a fine man.

I count Larry Mefford, Chris Whitcomb, Ed Ball, Denny Kline, George Alznauer and other FBI retired agents as friends. All good, honorable men. I worked closely with the FBI in going after the Libyans who bombed Pan Am 103. I was there when the FBI discovered, thanks to the CIA, where the Libyans obtained the timer (a MEBO timer) in Switzerland that was used to blow up Pan Am 103.

Update (1700ET): According to Newsweek, the FBI had a 'confidential human source' (a mole) inside Mar-a-Lago, who was "able to identify what classified documents former President Trump was still hiding and even the location of those documents."

The Trumps have revealed more about Monday's FBI raid of their Mar-a-Lago property.

For starters, Eric Trump told the Daily Mail that "the 30 agents who arrived at the property asked staff to turn security cameras off – and to kick their lawyer off the property, but they refused."

"They told our lawyer… you have to leave the property right now. Turn off all security cameras."

Eric also said "They would not give her the search warrant," adding "So they showed it to her from about 10 feet away. They would not give her a copy of the search warrant."

He also said that the FBI brought safe crackers in to break into his father's safe, and that agents rummaged through Melania Trump's wardrobe.

"It's all a coordinated attack with the FBI," said the former president's son, insisting that President Biden approved the raid.

"Do you think that the FBI director is going to raid the former president's house, especially a house as you know, kind of world renowned as Mar Lago is in a place as public as Mar Lago is without getting the approval of President [Biden]?"

By not turning off the security cameras, Eric said they saw the FBI raiding areas of the property that they 'shouldn't have been.'

Donald Trump lamented Wednesday that the FBI blocked his lawyers from the property during the raid at his Palm Beach, Florida residence and suggested that agents may have 'planted' evidence. -Daily Mail

Donald Trump, meanwhile, suggested in a Wednesday post to his Truth Social page that the FBI may have planted evidence.

One aspect of Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan that has been largely overlooked is her meeting with Mark Lui, chairman of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC). Pelosi’s trip coincided with US efforts to convince TSMC – the world’s largest chip manufacturer, on which the US is heavily dependent – to establish a manufacturing base in the US and to stop making advanced chips for Chinese companies.

US support for Taiwan has historically been based on Washington’s opposition to communist rule in Beijing, and Taiwan’s resistance to absorption by China. But in recent years, Taiwan’s autonomy has become a vital geopolitical interest for the US because of the island’s dominance of the semiconductor manufacturing market.

Semiconductors – also known as computer chips or just chips – are integral to all the networked devices that have become embedded into our lives. They also have advanced military applications.

Guest is Dr. Ariyana Love, a Naturopathic Doctor & Investigative Journalist. Her elder son was vaccine injured at age two and diagnosed with High Functioning Autism at age 7. She applied her knowledge of Naturopathic Medicine and designed a dietary protocol that resulted in a near total reversal of her son’s debilitating symptoms. In 2017, she was awarded the official title of Goodwill Ambassador to Palestine via the Palestinian Authorities.

In this session, she talks about Covid-19 vaccine-patents and how they’re able to target and permanently delete genetic codes on genetic lineages in humans, and also encode new genetic sequences into the genome of targeted cells – about the role of gene-deletion in Autism or AIDS. Further, she discusses about the 115 different animal venoms contained within the “spike protein” (“Glycoprotein S”) and about the transmissibility of this bioweapon using graphene oxide nanoparticles as vectors. “They are not using viruses in any vaccines. It’s always been deadly bacteria extractions, like E. coli, to create lab generated Mycoplasmas and this is the root cause of all chronic illness.”

A judicial panel Thursday consolidated more than 31 lawsuits against Merck for injuries allegedly caused by its Gardasil HPV vaccine, rejecting Merck’s argument that doing so would increase vaccine hesitancy, spread misinformation about vaccines and cause a flood of ‘meritless’ injury claims.

The lawsuits against Merck allege the pharmaceutical giant fast-tracked Gardasil through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval process and deceptively conducted clinical trials to mask serious side effects and exaggerate the vaccine’s effectiveness.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation said the individual lawsuits involve common questions of fact, and that “centralization in the Western District of North Carolina will serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct of the litigation.”

The judicial panel wrote:

“These personal injury actions present common questions of fact arising from allegations that plaintiffs, or their minor children, developed postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and various other injuries as the result of an autoimmune reaction to the Gardasil vaccine, which is recommended for the prevention of certain strains of the human papillomavirus and various cancers.”

The lawsuits consist of product liability claims, claims for breach of warranty, fraud, negligence and in some cases, violations of state consumer protection laws.

The Democrats’ new reconciliation bill isn’t just going to be the largest-ever expansion of a government agency, it’s going to be the largest expansion of the domestic police state in American history. Only a statist could believe that a federal government, which already collects $4.1 trillion every year—or $12,300 for every citizen—needs 80 new battalions of new IRS cops.

The average American has less reason to be concerned about cops with guns—though the IRS is looking for special agents who can “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary”— than they do bureaucrats armed with pens who are authorized to sift through their lives. If you pay your taxes you have nothing to worry, Democrats claim. But most law-abiding citizen know they have something to fear from a state agency that doesn’t concern itself with your due process, has no regard for your privacy, and is empowered to target anyone it wants without any genuine oversight.

And, please, spare us this nonsense about the IRS expansion focusing exclusively on “high earners.” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre promised that the IRS wouldn’t engage in new audits of anyone making under $400,000—a claim she has no authority to make and could not possibly predict even if she did. Connecticut’s Chris Murphy also said that the bill was passed to stop an “epidemic of tax cheating amongst the millionaires and billionaires” and promised that “audit rates won’t increase for anyone making under $400K.”

This is a lie. Nothing in the bill that Democrats passed through the Senate limits audits.

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s Trump-endorsed primary challenger Kelly Tshibaka blasted the incumbent senator’s silence over the FBI’s unprecedented raid of a former president this week in an exclusive statement on Wednesday.

“Every American should condemn this gross abuse of power, because it means that there really are no limits on what federal agencies will do to citizens,” Tshibaka told The Federalist. “The fact that Lisa Murkowski can’t bring herself to call this what it is means she condones it. And that’s exactly what a D.C. insider who sides with Biden would do.”

More than 30 FBI agents scoured former President Donald Trump’s 128-room Florida mansion on Monday in a dramatic escalation of the Democrats’ weaponization of the Justice Department against the potential 2024 GOP front-runner. The search warrant was granted by a magistrate who donated to former President Barack Obama and has ties to Jeffrey Epstein. While ostensibly executed over potential violations of the Presidential Records Act, the 1978 law is rarely prosecuted. Trump had also been cooperative with federal officials regarding what documents would return to government custody, according to the New York Post, which revealed on Wednesday that FBI agents tried to turn the Mar-a-Lago security cameras off when they rummaged through Melania Trump’s wardrobe.

A new whistleblower report reveals former FBI officer Jill Sanborn led a campaign to pad domestic terrorism data.

Jill Sanborn left the FBI and took a job at Roku Inc.

According to the whistleblower, Sanborn pressured agents to recategorize cases as “domestic violent extremism” without evidence.

Jill Sanborn made headlines back in January.

On January 11, 2022 Senator Ted Cruz confronted FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn over the law enforcement agency’s involvement on January 6th in a tense exchange during Tuesday’s Senate Hearings.

Cruz asked the FBI director several straightforward questions like ‘how many FBI agents or informants actively participated in Jan 6th? And is notorious 1/6 catalyst ‘Ray Epps a fed?’

But Cruz was unable to get any real answers from Sanborn during her sworn testimony; the only thing she was able to respond with to the majority of his questions was ‘I can’t answer that.’

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday spoke publicly for the first time since his jackbooted thugs raided Trump’s Florida residence.

Nearly 3 dozen federal agents descended on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on Monday.

Under Director Wray’s leadership, machine gun-toting agents camped outside of Mar-a-Lago while federal agents rummaged through Trump’s home.

Christopher Wray spoke during a news conference in Omaha, Nebraska on Wednesday.

A reporter asked Wray about the raid on Mar-a-Lago and brought up Trump’s comments on the FBI possibly “planting” evidence at his home since no witnesses were allowed near the agents.

“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.” – Trump said on Truth Social on Wednesday.

As reported earlier today — President Trump declassified a binder on January 19th, 2021 that contains hundreds of pages about the Crossfire Hurricane scandal. It contains damaging information about the corrupt actors involved with our government. Two different DOJ Attorney General’s have defied President Trump’s direct lawful order to publish the binder in the Federal Register. It’s been 19 months as the DOJ defies the order, and every FOIA request to make it public. Can we now raid the homes of acting AG Monty Wilkinson, and Merrick Garland?

The DOJ had already made redactions to protect sources & methods, and returned the binder back to the White House. But the corrupt FBI also wanted to hide names. So at the last minute, the DOJ demanded the binder comply with the 1974 Privacy Act. The Act requires any “agency” that releases records to also hide personal or identifiable name information. The DOJ knew this Act doesn’t apply to the White House, it was a stall tactic. The courts decided this 22 years ago that the Privacy Act was based around FOIA requests, and the White House is not an agency.

Hours before Trump left office on January 20th, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows gave the binder back to the DOJ, along with this memo. He asked the DOJ to make any Privacy Act redactions “out of an abundance of caution”. In the memo he asks they expeditiously release the binder when finished. Meadows foolishly expected this would take 3-4 days. It’s been 19 months and still not released. Just the News recently obtained the Meadows memo from the National Archives, who also denied having a copy of the declassified binder.

Individuals around the world are speaking up against the Deep State FBI’s raid of the President of the United State’s home, Mar-a-Lago.  It was the day America changed forever.  We won’t forget this. 

From the Israel National News, Alan Bergstein wrote an excellent summary of what happened when the FBI stormed President Trump’s home.  Here’s an excerpt:

Mark the date in your memory; August 8, 2022. It will be recorded in history as the “Kristallnacht of American Democracy.” Basically the day similar in nature, to the German Nazis’ opening salvo of fascism, the beginning of the extermination of Jews and democracy, on November 9, 1938.

Yesterday was a sad day for all of patriotic Americans, as our former independent federal law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the Justice Department, now officially both under the singular control of the Democrat Party, raided the home of former President Trump and confiscated all of his personal data, without going through the legal processes of obtaining court orders to do so.

Let’s hope Merrick Garland’s search of Mar-a-Lago is based on more evidence than his indictment of the Louisville, Kentucky, police officers involved in the raid on Breonna Taylor’s house.

That passive construction I just used — “involved in the raid on,” instead of “who raided” — is not sloppy writing: It’s the facts. The officers who actually shot Taylor have not been charged, apparently on the flimsy grounds that they were being shot at when they fired.

Instead, our lunatic attorney general has indicted officers who prepared the affidavit used to obtain the warrant to search Taylor’s home. In the words of the indictment, the affidavit “contained information that was false, misleading and out-of-date … and the officers lacked probable cause for the search.”

Earlier today, I posted an op-ed written by a Boston city planner and climate change activist who advocates for bicycles to reduce climate emissions. She takes a trip to her bicycle mecca, Amsterdam, and meets with city planners to find out how they’ve made their city so bike-friendly. But slowly, the horrifying truth dawns on her: the Dutch bureaucrats build fast, big, cheaply, and beautifully by focusing on the greatest good for the greatest number (i.e., Dutchmen) rather than on Centering the Marginalized like American city planners have been trained to do, which is a big reason few things get built in America.

Readers have pointed out yesterday’s New York Times article about how Who? Whom? thinking has halted any progress on turning an abandoned bridge across the Anacostia River near the US Capitol into a park, but that’s a good thing because urban planners have been busy for 11 years trying to figure out how to prevent their planned park from causing gentrification.

A group of conservatives in the House of Representatives claimed on Wednesday that both the unannounced FBI search of Donald Trump's home and seizure of GOP Rep. Scott Perry's phone 'expose' the Biden administration's weaponization of the Justice Department.

Republicans have been reacting with outrage after the former president announced his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida was raided by federal agents on Monday, in an operation that appears to be related to documents sought by the National Archives.

Trump's party was further incensed on Tuesday when one of his top allies in Congress, House Freedom Caucus Chair Perry, revealed his phone was taken by three FBI agents who confronted him while Perry was traveling with family.

Pelosi defended the trip that has provoked Chinese ire and a slew of threats and military drills:  'Our purpose in going to Taiwan was to say that we have this strong relationship built on the status quo, which we support.'

Startling new satellite images have showcased the extent of the damage at a Russian air force base in Crimea after devastating explosions ravaged the site on Tuesday afternoon. 

The broken and charred remains of several Russian fighter jets can be seen in the aftermath of the blasts which are believed to have damaged up to 20 aircraft and demolished ammunition storage facilities.

Russia denied any aircraft were damaged in Tuesday's blasts - or that any attack took place. More explosions were then reported last night at Zyabrovka airbase in the Homiel region of southern Belarus just 20 miles from the northern Ukrainian border, which has also been used by the Russian air force. 

Again, officials tried to downplay the blasts - saying they were an accident caused by an aircraft engine fire.

The Health Ministry said the child, Hanin Abu Qayda, 10, was seriously injured when the Israeli army fired missiles at a civilian car, killing her grandmother, Na’ama Mohammad Abu Qayda, 62, and wounding seven family members.

The family was preparing for the wedding of one of Hanin’s uncles and was driving toward the groom’s house when the army fired missiles at their car in the Um an-Nasr area in Beit Hanoun.

Hanin suffered various serious wounds, including the main artery in her leg, leading to various complications that resulted in her death despite all efforts to save her life.
