NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 03.22.17

The Conspiracy Guy #17: The House Intelligence Hearings on Russian involvement in the 2016 election are a complete and total farce. When you break down the three elements of the alleged events, they are (1) claims the Russian affected the actual vote; (2) claims the Russians hacked the DNC; and (3) claims a “dossier” proves Trump was compromised and the Russians had proof. Director Comey and NSA Admiral Rogers denied (1) immediately. We know that (3) was “fan fiction” by a 4 Chan chat board member, which Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told Reince Priebus on 15 February were “bullshit”, which was confirmed by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in a call to President Trump. That leaves (2), but we know the chain of custody of the DNC’s emails went from Seth Rich, their IT guy, who was disillusioned by the sabotaging of Bernie Sanders campaign, to Craig Murray, a friend of Julian Assange. to Julian for publication. Both have affirmed the know the identity of the leader and he was not Russian. The DNC, embarrassed by the revelations, needed a cover story, which led them to make up the “Russian hacking meme”. Proof it was contrived–a work of complete fiction–follows from the DNC’s refusal to allow the FBI access to the servers the were allegedly hacked, which would have provided no evidence, because they were not hacked. More information is coming about that substantiates Trump’s claim to have been spied upon by Obama–and it is not going to make those who have been promoting the phony “Russian hacking” theory look good.


NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 03.01.17

he Conspiracy Guy #14: Donald Trumps first speech to Congress hit it out of the park. Even CNN had to acknowledge its tremendous positive reception by the public, with 57% reacting “very positive” and another 21% “somewhat positive”, with only 21% “negative”. His introduction of a program to assist victims of crime committed by immigrants was characterized as a recipe for “genocide”, which is simply absurd. The news stories that his Chief of Staff had asked the FBI to shoot down stories about RussiaGate ignored that the Deputy Director of the FBI told Reince Priebus that reports in The New York Times were “complete bullshit”. Attempts to portray Trump as “out of touch with reality” are refuted by case after case where he was right and the press was wrong, including terrorists mingling with refugees, the Obama “birther” issue, Rafael Cruz in Ne Orleans with Lee Harvey Oswald, fraudulent votes cast in the 2016 election, that Obamacare is costing twice as much for half as much, and the dramatic increase of rapes in Sweden caused by the influx of immigrants. More recent revelations confirm that PizzaGate has been a mechanism for controlling politicians through blackmail conducted by the CIA and the Mossad, whose power over Congress will be dramatically lessened as Trump moves forward to “drain the swamp”.


Chris Hedges – Demagogue-in-Chief

For Donald Trump, the presidency will be a vast stage for accommodating his megalomania and insatiable appetite for money. Those who mock, defy or anger him will feel the wrath of the state. Those who are not obsequious will be cast aside. He will invest most of his energy in his brand. Self-promotion is the only real talent he possesses. …
