Some Heroes You Got There! By Raúl Ilargi Meijer

You are in trouble when your heroes are people like Robert Mueller, Adam Schiff, and Anthony Fauci. From Raúl Ilargi Meijer theautomaticearth.com:

We associate the term “mass psychosis” with the reaction(s) to Covid, but I would argue it’s been around a lot longer, and broader. At least since 2015, and the media coverage (if you can even call it that) of Donald Trump, his campaign and his presidency. I have no special sympathy for Trump (though some people doubt that), but that episode, and the “coverage” of it, did wake me up -even more- to how the media -and US “intelligence”, and Trump’s various opponents- influenced the way they wanted people to think.

And perhaps the best way to illustrate this is the “heroes” they have been promoting ever since. It’s not just Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden during the “Trump days”, this model is still used to date. They make people like, and thereby trust, certain characters, and we’re off to the races. One thing that sticks out is how in the cases of Trump-Russia, Covid, and Ukraine-Russia, there are these personae that were getting adorned with celebratory candles and stuff like that.

The first person we saw that with was Robert Mueller. He did a 2-year “investigation”, which resulted in absolutely nothing -other than some vague allegations he had no proof of either-, and which he should have halted at least a year before he did, something nobody ever called him on. At his “closing” testimony he even claimed he had never heard of Fusion GPS, one of the key components in his own “investigation”, so we wondered if he ever had any control of this probe, or if it were perhaps Andrew Weizmann and the other 40-odd lawyers, paid god knows how many millions, and had god knows what other resources.

John Allen Abruptly Resigns As Brookings President Amid FBI Qatar Lobbying Probe, by Tyler Durden

Once in a while the curtain gets pulled back and we get a glimpse of how Washington really works. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

After initially being placed on administration leave following news breaking days ago of an official FBI investigation, the president of the Brookings Institution – retired Marine Gen. John Allen – resigned on Sunday amid an embarrassing illegal foreign lobbying probe center on the oil-rich Gulf nation of Qatar.

“I know it is best for all concerned in this moment,” Allen’s letter of resignation said. His letter submitted to the think tank didn’t offer an explanation, only saying he’s stepping down with a “heavy heart”. Qatar is well-known to have long funded Brookings to the tune of at least tens of millions of dollars.

At this point Allen hasn’t been charged with any crimes, and he’s expressly denied wrongdoing, according to statements from a spokesman.

The retired four-star was tapped to lead Brookings Institution starting in 2017 fresh off overseeing the Afghan war. Brookings is widely considered to be among the most influential foreign policy think tanks in the world. Based in D.C., its other most visible international headquarters is in Doha, Qatar. The Qatari government has further long been among Brookings’ biggest financial backers.

Nancy Pelosi Finally Loses Some Money, by Simon Black

Here’s Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd. From Black at sovereignman.com:

Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Hunter Biden: The Greatest Businessman of All Time

Forget Elon Musk. Hunter Biden must clearly be the greatest businessman of all time.

Yesterday, NBC News released an analysis of Hunter Biden’s hard drive, showing that the Big Guy’s son earned a whopping $11 million over the past few years from Ukrainian and Chinese firms with which he did business.

It’s not clear exactly what Hunter, now a famous artist (what a Renaissance Man!), did to earn such a prodigious sum.

Don’t worry, though. President Biden is “sure his son did not break the law”. Just like he was sure the Taliban would not recapture Afghanistan.

Nancy Pelosi Finally Loses Some Money

Nancy Pelosi’s investment acumen is the stuff of legends, perhaps only rivaled by Hunter Biden’s business acumen.

For years, the US Speaker of the House raked in millions upon millions of dollars from conveniently well-timed stock and options trades— from which she has become one of the wealthiest women in the world.

Servant of the Corrupt, by Pedro Gonzales

This is great inside information on the corrupt clown to whom the U.S. is sending billions of dollars. From Pedro Gonzales at im1776.com:

In February 2021, by order of President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine shut down three domestic television channels, accusing them of spreading Russian “propaganda.” Three months later, Zelenksky arrested Viktor Medvedchuk, who was at the time leading the second-biggest party in Ukraine’s national parliament, the pro-Russia and Eurosceptic Opposition Platform for Life (OPZZh).

Zelensky didn’t have trouble incinerating vaunted democratic norms well-before Russia crossed the Rubicon into Ukraine this year. So it was no surprise when he did it again amid the war in late March, invoking emergency powers under martial law to nationalize TV channels and ban 11 opposition parties, including OPZZh — all supposedly done in the name of combatting Russian misinformation and Russian sympathizers, even though OPZZh’s then-chairman, Yuriy Boyko, denounced the war and called for a ceasefire and the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine. Zelensky, however, wouldn’t miss another opportunity to clip the wings of political opposition in his country, certainly not now that Western media rationalizes and glorifies his every move.

But the portrait of the Ukraine President as a democratic paragon whitewashes the real Zelensky and conceals a vast web of corruption and international skullduggery of which Ukraine is situated in the centre. Understanding the real Zelensky, requires seeing him as a creation of Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky. He is, in truth, a puppet of intrigue.

It’s Time to Walk Away from a Hopelessly Corrupt Federal Government that Facilitates Biden’s Destruction of America, by Joe Hoft

There’s been a massive split between much of the American people and the government. From Joe Hoft at thegatewaypundit.com:

Historically, all “revolutions” arise from societal disruption, chaos, if you will.

Case in point is the rise of Nazism.

In the 1928 German elections, the Nazis received 2.6% of the vote. In 1930, a year after the 1929 Wall Street crash, the Nazis received 18.3% of the vote. By November 1932, at the height of the Great Depression, the Nazis were the dominant party with 33.1% of the vote.

What we are now witnessing in the U.S. is planned chaos to lay the foundation for “revolution.”

That is, the Biden regime wishes to impose a global one-party totalitarian state, a retrograde hybrid governance model combining the most tyrannical aspects of the Chinese Communist Party and the World Economic Forum, in which there are no nations, but only land and people to exploit.

Biden’s America Rots from the Head Down, by J.B. Shurk

The language of this Joe Biden is some of the most colorful and apt we’ve read in quite some time. From J.B. Shurk at americanthinker.com:

Perhaps no head of state before Joe Biden has so completely personified the maritime proverb that the fish rots from the head down.  In both deed and physical decay, he is that putrefying rancidness wafting from where offal is tossed near the dock whose ability to trigger the gag reflexes of unsuspecting travelers seems the perfect metaphor for this nauseating moment in American history.  Not only is Joe’s walking corpse a fitting symbol for a country that has never looked more debilitated, but the reality (ignored by the State’s slavishly devoted press corps) that his cognitive acuity is plummeting so fast that terminal velocity was reached long ago drives the point home that the head of our head of state is rotting, too.

When Biden’s handlers sent him to Buffalo, New York, to exploit a mass murder by blaming conservatives, liberty-lovers, Trump Republicans, Fox News, and just about anybody to the right of Karl Marx for a crime whose perpetrator didn’t even merit the faux-president’s direct condemnation, angry, spiteful Joe Biden showed just what a miserable, acidic, revolting excuse for a human being he’s always been.  A real president would have mourned the dead, comforted the survivors, consoled the grieving, and united Americans through the common bonds of their humanity.  But Joe Biden is no real president, so he both dishonored the solemnity of the occasion and betrayed his sacred duty to elevate the nation’s welfare over the interests of his party’s political power.  With an outstretched, bony finger good for nothing now but casting blame, he tarnished the tragedy with petty partisanship, rebuffed the nation’s need for grace, befouled what should have been dignified, and withered further the civic sinews barely binding Americans together as one nation.  Biden’s moment in Buffalo was disgraceful.

Commerce Cronyism: Inside Deals, Conflicts of Interest and Chinese Connections, by Peter Schweizer

The Commerce Department, regarded by many Washington outsiders as a backwater, is apparently a hotbed of corruption, which makes it desirable and lucrative for Washington insiders.From Peter Schweizer at gatestoneinstitute.org:

  • The Commerce Department is the fourth most lobbied federal office, behind only the Treasury Department, Health & Human Services, and the White House itself. It is more lobbied than the bigger budgeted Department of Defense and Department of Transportation, despite managing a far smaller budget. This is no accident, because Commerce makes what can be life-and-death decisions for particular industries and businesses.
  • Yet the mission of this “hodgepodge” of administrative agencies, bureaus, and offices could not be more important. The Commerce Department’s broad purpose is “to create the conditions for economic growth and opportunity.”
  • Through its Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce regulates what are known as “dual use” technologies, which have potential military applications for foreign powers, another sore spot in the US-China relationship.

Acting NIH Director Admits Appearance Of Conflict Of Interest In Secret Royalty Payments To Fauci, Scientists, by Mark Tapscott

There is no way to put an innocent gloss on this story; it reeks of corruption. From Mark Tapscott at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:

Undisclosed royalty payments estimated at $350 million from pharmaceutical and other firms to Dr. Anthony Fauci and hundreds of National Institutes for Health (NIH) scientists do present “an appearance of a conflict of interest,” according to the agency’s acting director.

Dr. Lawrence Tabak, who took over as NIH Director following the December 2021 resignation of the agency’s long-time leader, Dr. Francis Collins, told a House Appropriations Committee subcommittee that federal law allows the royalty payments but he conceded they don’t look ethical.

Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.) told Tabak that “right now, I think the NIH has a credibility problem and this only feeds into this, and I’m only just learning about this. People in my district say ‘well, so-and-so has a financial interest, or they don’t like Ivermectin because they aren’t benefitting from that royalty …

“You may have very sound scientific reasons for recommending a medicine or not, but the idea that people get a financial benefit from certain research that’s been done and grants that were awarded, that is to me the height of the appearance of a conflict of interest.”

“This is This”, by James Howard Kuntsler

We’re watching in slow-motion as reality obliterates narratives. Stay tuned, there’s much more to come. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:



“This is this,” DiNiro’s character “Michael” famously told Cazale’s “Stan” in The Deer Hunter, explaining the metaphysics of the bullet in his hand, and pretty much everyone watching the movie got the drift of that cryptic utterance. Likewise, Elon Musk’s character “Elon Musk” explained to America’s Maoist managerial legions: “Free speech is free speech” — as if, a week after Twitter’s surrender to Elon, there was some part of the formulation that the Left didn’t understand. (Apparently, all of it.)

What a concept! Free speech is free speech. It has bowled over the — what? — maybe twenty-three percent of the country that considers free speech “a threat to democracy.” This is what comes of inverting and subverting language itself for the purpose of mind-raping the nation like Jeffrey Epstein on a 15-year-old. The Left has exercised a Macumba voodoo death grip on free speech for years now. The deeper the Left’s crimes against the constitution and common decency, the harder they strangled the flow of news, information, and opinion until the mental life of the USA turned into a gibber of shamefully obvious unreality.

Beijing’s “Elite Capture” Strategy Was A Success: Peter Schweizer, by Masooma Haq and Roman Balmakov

There are an awful lot of Americans in positions of importance who are in China’s pocket. From Masooma Haq and Roman Balmakov at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:

Peter Schweizer, author of the book “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China,” said the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) entry into the WTO changed the global economic structure in large part because it unleashed the regime’s strategy of gaining control of America’s elite class so they would do Beijing’s bidding.

Peter Schweizer is interviewed by NTD in a still from video published on March 26, 2022. (NTD)

Schweizer calls this strategy “elite capture,” and the CCP’s plan was to target the top levels of big tech, entertainment, education, Wall Street, as well as politics.

It’s going to give [the CCP] leverage over them [the elites] because once [the CCP has] sort of touched them and made them rich, or as some CCP officials have said, they’ve tasted the honey that they’ve been offered, they will not want to give it back, they will not want to give it up,” said Schweizer.

“So that gives enormous leverage to Beijing over elements of our leadership class.”
