The Trump administration’s military adventures and the rise of the Neo Cons in the Trump White House
The Conspiracy Guy #19: The stunning revelation that Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, was responsible for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members has created chaos in Washington, D.C., were reporters for major outlets turn out to have been sitting on the story to protect the reputation of the former president. Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell, which exposed Rice as having lied about the matter just two weeks ago, when she insisted she knew nothing about it; now, to defend herself, she claims that it was “part of her job”! The cork is out of the bottle, the toothpaste is out of the tube, there will be no going back to the stage of denying that surveillance was taking place–and, indeed, on a scale heretofore unimagined. A new whistleblower, Dennis Montgomery, a former contractor for the NSA and the CIA, has emerged, where his attorney, Larry Klayman, has written to around 50 members of Congress to put them on notice that Montgromery has 47 hard drives and 600 million pages of information about massive surveillance during the Obama Administration, including of the Chief Justice of the United States, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, 156 other judges, and prominent personages such as Donald Trump and Larry Klayman himself. Perhaps most strikingly, Montgomery had already given this treasure trove to the FBI and both Congressional intelligence committees. What more we are going to discover remains to be seen, but it appears that Donald Trump has been proven right again in allegations he has made that have been widely debunked by the corrupt press in the past. This one is going to make a difference.

As a poll- and ratings-obsessed individual, you’d think Donald Trump would worry that he and his administration are down to the mid-30s right now in terms of popularity among Americans. But no, it doesn’t seem to faze President Chaos, who clearly is obsessed with fighting Barack Obama’s ghost.

The Conspiracy Guy #12: Just when things seemed to be “settling down” with Trump accepting the “One China” policy, suggesting new settlements on Palestinian land was not “helpful to peace”, informing the EU that the US will abide by the Iran nuclear agreement and nixing Rex Tillerson’s preference for Elliott Abrams as Deputy Secretary of State–catastrophe occurs in the form of the resignation/dismissal of National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, who has been the intelligence expert enabling The Donald to navigate the treacherous shoals of dealing with the US intel community. There are growing suspicions of a conspiracy to target his closest advisors, beginning with Flynn but moving on the KelleyAnne Conway, Steve Bannon and then the President himself. While Hillary cronies and Hillary herself tweet as though this were payback for PizzaGate, there are reasons to believe that, now Jeff Sessions is Attorney General, the hammer is going to fall and that she, Chuck Schumer, Tim Kaine and Michael Blumenthal may be among 30 politicians and 40 others in DC, VA and NYC who are going to be arrested in an imminent PizzaGate sweep.
The Conspiracy Guy #8: The internet swirls with speculation that the CIA is going to take out the President-Elect of the United States prior to or during his inauguration. As stunning as it sounds, the threat appears to be real. The intelligence agencies have been attacking Trump on the basis of a fabricated “Russian dossier” that was created as “fanfiction”, which no one, much less the leaders of US intel agencies, ought to have taken seriously. And the claims of Russian hacking of the election likewise have no foundation: those DNC emails were not hacked but leaked, apparently by Seth Rich, the IT guy for the DNC, out of disillusionment with the sabotage of Bernie Sander’s campaign. Craig Murray, an intelligence analyst, UK ambassador and college head, evidently received them from him and gave them to Julian Assange, where Murray and Assange both deny any Russian involvement and where Rich appears to have paid for his act of supererogation with his life. But reliance upon fabricated documents by US intel agencies may be exceeded in hubris by the use of yet a third Hillary Clinton body-double, this one far better than either the “Meg Ryan” double used the day of her collapse at the 9/11 Memorial event and the “Meryl Streep” double used a few days later, where this third double has been identified in a new study using (what is known as) “eye-teeth ratio” to discriminate between them (where they have other obvious differences, once you realize the deception). And Hollywood propaganda continues unabated with the release of “Patriots Day”, a fictional reconstruction of the Boston bombing, but one in accord with the official account, which I dissect, piece by piece, during the second half of the show.
Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers attacked the policy proposals of Donald Trump on several fronts, saying the president-elect’s plans for deregulation were setting the stage for the next financial crisis. “The deregulation in some areas like finance is hugely dangerous,” Summers said Sunday in an interview on Fox News Channel. “Who wants to go back to the era of predatory …
It’s been a long and bumpy ride to yesterday’s Electoral College vote that officially declared the winners—billionaire businessman Donald J. Trump (president) and Gov. Michael R. Pence of Indiana (vice president)—in the 2016 presidential race. But the end of the race isn’t putting an end to intense debate and dissatisfaction about the process that won them, and previous candidates going back to 1787, victory.
