US government declares war on half the country: Baiting, panicked, or just crazy?

Tucker Carlson wonders why the Democrats are recklessly overreacting to no known plots of white supremacists and Domestic Terrorists. He calls it fear or panic — the leaders are afraid of the people they are supposed to be leading. They are afraid of populism — of a mass uprising. They don’t have answers. They know they don’t, and they know you know.

AOC is trying to convince the nation that there are white supremacists at the heart of the GOP.  Tucker asks where this projection of racial hate is going. It’s like using a flame thrower in a crowded theater. What is the effect of the lies like this? 

Are the Democrats projecting a civil war until they trigger one? They may be baiting to get the extreme reactions they hope fringe groups resort to — so they can use them to demand more lists, more rules, and more purges. But they play with fire. They may not want a civil war. (Although the CCP presumably does. )

The Bitchute version may “hang” due to the surging popularity of it:

The Youtube version is there as a backup til it disappears:


The outrageous purge continues:

If you even have an account on Parler or Gab, it’s a sackable offence. They are that afraid of people seeing uncensored opinions, it doesn’t matter whether you actually post anything on those forums, just opening an account is a thoughtcrime. It’s just another way to stop alternative forums from growing. It’s a way of shielding your own blind followers from other views.

    The bully is scared to death. That’s one of the reasons why all those troops, all those barricades, all that concertina wire is still up in DC.

    They ostensibly want to project “Power”, but all we see is politicians who are frightened of the regular Joe.

    One of the first things Biden did was to sign an EO that paved the way for European-style “Gun Control” which he will try to get thru Congress. Of course, it will pass both houses (thanks to the stolen Georgia Senate election) and then the spicy times really start.

    There will be hundreds of lawsuits filed that will tie this up for years. In the meantime more EOs later will make tens of millions of Americans felons overnight. Then it’s “Come and Take It” time.

    Guess we will see how the local LEOs like enforcing those, going door to door. 🌶 Spicy times, indeed.

        “The bully is scared to death”???

        How can that be???

        The bully is no longer President.

        Surelyyou remember him bullying Brad Raffensperger to find him 11.870 votes? Remember his bullying Mike Pence to overturn the Electoral College votes?

        Remember his telephone bullying of Emmanuel Macron, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Scott Morrison, Justin Trudeau?

        Biden is a rank amateur in the bullying stakes compared with his predecessor.

          Ian…you should have been featured on the latest piece of garbage sent around the world by the Democrats’ Fascist Cabal and aired tonight by our very own branch of the worldwide putsch …SBS…the propaganda attack by the bloodthirsty mob that’s been vowing to drive him out of office and baying for his blood….since he dared to put the interests of the American people first.

          You would have been right at home with all the other sociopathic re-writers of history and malevolent manipulators of context.

          ‘Surely you remember’ that the duly-elected President you call the bully was set upon minutes after taking office by a posse of the Obama/Biden apparatchiks who’d colluded with Russian spies and other like-minded lotharios of the Left’s siren call …demanding his impeachment for no other reason than that their elaborate attempt at entrapment of him hadn’t worked….he’d escaped…and that meant they weren’t going to be able to herd people for awhile .

          Now they want a stake through his heart because they know and you know, that he knows and we know ..and the whole rational world knows …. that they …the Clinton/Obama gang and their Fascist protectors…are the guiltiest people on earth…guilty …with malice aforethought….of killing democracy…of killing justice….of killing trust…of killing education…of killing women’s sport stone dead…..of endangering the lives of Americans in order to get power over them…of epic , unhinged, unrepentant misogyny that can never be forgotten or expunged…of crippling the lives of children in America and around the world…of destroying the freedom and the futures of the world’s children….guilty of creating worldwide conflict which can be the only outcome of this helter skelter insanity….all for their own personal lust for power over people and for ill-gotten riches beyond imagination.

            I have made quite a few visits to Moresby, last one was about 8 years ago. The fences are still there, and those hotels are quite safe as they employ Islanders as guards. The Rascals are Highlanders and the Islanders hate them with a passion and have no compunctions about killing them.

            When I was working in PNG, one of my colleagues was gifted a hunting bow and some arrows by a Gulf Province villager. The villager seemed slightly embarrassed as he explained that the bow was only really meant for animals, and would not be very effective against people.

            Our local policeman was also disappointed as he only had a shotgun and a pistol. These too, were apparently no good for hunting people, unlike the weapons he had when he was somewhere on the Sepik river, near the Indonesian border.

One thing I remember was, often when the Japanese and I were having a SP or three in the Wewak Hotel beer garden after work, was the number of locals who came up to us and carried on amicable conversations, in fluent Japanese, with the contractors. Having our vehicle stoned while driving back from Maprik to Wewak through the cargo cult area late one afternoon was also memorable, if less pleasant.

      Politico reporter: Trump base is ‘getting stronger’ since he left office, impeachment would only empower him

      ‘I think that there’s a huge disconnect between Washington and the rest of the country’

      Former President Donald Trump has actually gained — not lost — political clout since leaving office, a political observer asserted Friday.

      Politico reporter Tara Palmeri’s observation runs contrary to the assumptions of many in the Washington D.C. establishment and the mainstream media.

      “People don’t want to hear anything against Trump,” Palmeri said during an appearance on MSNBC. “Actually, the more he stays out of the media, the more that he becomes this martyr, this looming figure over the GOP.”

      In fact, there is now a “crusade” being waged on behalf of the former president in places like Wyoming, where Trump is “way more popular” that the state’s high-ranking congressional Republican, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, Palmeri said.

      She drew the conclusion after speaking with locals in the Cowboy State about Cheney’s vote to impeach Trump while covering an anti-Cheney rally led by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

      “I actually went out of my way to try to find someone who would defend her and I really could not,” Palmeri told MSNBC. “She didn’t have that much name recognition, considering she’s a Cheney. … I mean, I said her name at a hardware store, and someone shouted a threat.”

        Elections have consequences. Sometimes unintended consequences. Especially corrupt elections. Because of how they consolidated their power in the wake of election, the lingering smell of the election is now impregnated into the culture. Now the democrats find themselves type cast into undesirable character roles.

        The democrats are now perfectly cast as the bad guys. The ones who are the oppressors. They are the man now. The (carbon) tax man in fact. Indeed, they are the Sheriff of Nottingham and his henchmen in a Robinhood movie. While Trump’s supports are the men exiled, but also now unreachable, into the Sherwood Forrest.

        An old fashioned cowboy movie makes an even more apt analogy, because Trump is now forever type cast as an John Wayne type character. It doesn’t matter if Trump wears a black cowboy hat or a white cowboy hat, he is the hero of the story. If he’s the bad man the angel has still fallen in love with him, because she knows that despite what is said of him he is a good guy.

        Meanwhile, Biden is the new sheriff in town, but everybody knows he’s just bought and paid for by the corrupt town bosses. It doesn’t matter how much he polishes his tin star, the tarnish of illegitimacy remains.

          Dave,
          The Trump/robinhood analogy I expect is agreeable to most Conservative/Republicans and I am not surprised his popularity is high, even increasing.
          That’s OK for 1/2 the country but what about the common dumbocraps? The lefty union man who reads NYT and watches CNN, does he have any inkling that he is being led by the nose, that obummer and slimton are patting bigdum on the head saying “good little boy, sign this!”.
          Does common dumbocrap ever get any inkling from the MSM that it’s not OK that the oglitechs actively supress free speach and manipulate the internet, that education is grossly left bias, that big business and big government are in bed, interbred and _____* each other?
          And even if he did get told this would he take any notice? Would he do anything about it?
          I susspect not, it’s hard for those being manipulated to recognise it and even harder for them to break free.

      They know they blatantly stole the election and they are very afraid of the ordinary people when it comes to light. And they want to provoke a response now so they can claim they only supported law and order.

      Hitler did exactly this after the night of the long knives to legitimize the mass arrests and murder in hindsight as actually restoring law and order. And they made up a fake comment by President Von Hinderburg commending the killings. It was fake news then and it is frightening that Biden is now calling up the ghost of Goebbels.

      The takeover of all news by the extreme left is growing. You wonder how long Breitbart and others will last. Trump is banned from any commenting. When did that last happen to a US President? Never.

      Freedom of speech is dying around the world, along with the truth. Every conservative voice is labelled Extreme Right, as if reasonable conservatives do not exist. To even question the election is a almost a statutory offence, an incitement to riot, an act of violence.

      As for the WHO investigating the Wuhan Flu, extremist Ethiopian people’s Liberation front leader and now President of WHO Tedros Adhonem stated categorically and officially that Wuhan Flu was NOT infectious, mid last January.

      Even then the CCP will not WHO pretend to investigate and announce a whitewash, just in case it doesn’t. It means the destruction wrought in America and across the world was deliberate, an act of war. This is another truth which must be buried, which is why Australia is being bullied.

      We live in dangerous times when democracy in America is being attacked, as in Europe under the EU. And honest commentators are being taken off the air.

        And you have to wonder if Biden and friends are really frightened. Perhaps worried about any part of the massive election rigging becoming common knowledge and their regime declared illegitimate by ordinary Americans and ultimately by the congress or the Supreme Court. That could happen still and it would be unprecedented. It’s hard to bottle up all the information forever. The Biden family in particular. How did they get to be so rich when dad is only on $150,000 a year?

        That is why they have to silence Trump and make sure he cannot be the figurehead of a truly National movement against the Democrat party and their stolen government. And many Democrat voters would agree as Biden moves quickly to bypass Congress and write his own laws, regardless to the cost to everyone. Trump never did that. It is the work of scared people and payback, overriding all norms of decent behaviour for a President. Scores of Presidential degrees in a day. That’s not government. It’s a dictatorship.

          And both Congress and the Senate are far too close for these outrageous edicts from a geriatric President, all pain and no gain for anyone except the enemies of America, China and Iran and Venezuela. Their energy independence, a gift of the Trump Presidency, is now at risk.

          A rapid grass roots revolt in the Democrat party itself may be underway, especially in critical States like Arizona and Pennsylvania which have lost so many jobs and so much money on the first day of a Democrat Presidency. And those who will lose more with bans on fracking, a ban which Biden promised absolutely he would not introduce.

          As with the black people, the Latinos, the workers, the new extreme left Green Democrats are burning bridges rapidly. And it will get far worse. China is watching.

      Justice Department Charges Proud Boys With Conspiracy To Obstruct Law Enforcement

      Posted on January 30, 2021 by Sundance

      The U.S. Attorney in Washington DC has filed conspiracy charges against two members of the Proud Boys for conspiring to obstruct law enforcement related to the January 6th events on Capitol Hill. [DOJ Press Release Here]

      When the DOJ and FBI want to find a conspiracy they can. When they do not want to find a conspiracy, they don’t… That reality is just part of accepting the two-tiered system of justice that is now in place all across America.

        Devin Nunes rips ‘two-tiered system’ after ex-FBI lawyer dodges prison time for Carter Page email deception

        by Jerry Dunleavy, Justice Department Reporter

        Rep. Devin Nunes and other Republicans blasted the probation sentence with no prison time for ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty to fraudulently altering a CIA email during the FBI’s flawed pursuit of surveillance against former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

        Nunes, the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who unearthed a host of problems with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process in the Trump-Russia investigation, told the Washington Examiner that “once again, we see a two-tiered system of justice where average Americans get investigated and imprisoned based on fake media narratives like ‘Russian collusion’ while government officials who perpetuated these abuses get off scot-free.” He added: “The FBI, DOJ, and judicial system need to regain Americans’ trust, and this absurd sentencing won’t help.”

        Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, who is also on the FISA court, denied the Justice Department’s efforts seeking up to six months behind bars, instead giving Clinesmith probation, 400 hours of community service within a year, and no fine.

      Whatever gets the job done’: AOC double standard on political violence

      In contrast to her sweeping claims of guilt by association in the Capitol riot, Ocasio-Cortez offered mostly rationalizations and relativism in response to the violence and destruction accompanying the protests that swept much of the country last year.

      On May 30 last year, Ocasio-Cortez released a video on Instagram in which she implied that individuals calling for an end to the country’s violent unrest should be prepared to give into protesters’ demands as a condition of doing so.

      “If you are calling for an end to this unrest, and if you are a calling for an end to all of this, but you are not calling for the end of the conditions that created the unrest, you are a hypocrite,” she said in the video.

      Joe’s Mandate Is No Mandate

      His great achievement is, and likely will remain, being the guy on the ballot not named Trump.

      What comes as priority No. 1 for congressional Democrats? Conducting an impeachment trial of a president no longer in office.

      Rand Paul, in forcing a vote this week on a point of order, exposed this as a fool’s errand not unlike the January 6 attempt to derail the certification of the Electoral College vote. “Instead of doing the nation’s work with their new majorities in the House, Senate, and the executive branch, Democrats are wasting the nation’s time on a partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office,” Paul said in the Senate. “It’s almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump.” And as the 55-45 vote forced by Paul shows, no path to 67 exists for Democrats hoping to convict Trump. So why waste precious time on this pointless pursuit?

      The closer red-state Democrats come to the midterm elections, the smaller the chances that Biden’s agenda passes. The further all Democrats get from the 2020 election, the clearer it seems that Biden’s agenda started and ended with the defeat of Donald Trump.

        And as the 55-45 vote forced by Paul shows, no path to 67 exists for Democrats hoping to convict Trump. So why waste precious time on this pointless pursuit?

        Democrats probably don’t expect the Senate to convict Donald Trump, however they probably believe they still have had a win.

        Firstly, they are seen as the “defenders of democracy and government institutions” through the impeachment of Trump for inciting insurrection. And secondly, they will have on the record all the Republicans who vote to acquit Trump – and will exploit it at the 2022 and 2024 elections.

        Meanwhile, there could be a fair number of Republicans who would like Trump (and Trumpism to fade away and for him to have no ambition to run again. But not enough to convict him I expect.

        Anyway – most of it is theatrical. It will be interesting to assess Biden’s first 100 days. I think it’s a mistake to see him as a sock puppet propped up in a chair, being controlled by others.

      Is This the Normal You Voted For?

      What voters truly want is a return to the true normal—namely, the normal that our free republic can once again inspire the world with what our free people achieve.

      Through this diaphanous prism of realization, one can starkly comprehend the Left’s game and aims:

      – The reckless misuse and mistreatment of National Guard troops to paint a false narrative that anyone, not a leftist is a white supremacist and terrorist; and the re-weaponization of the federal government against the Left’s opponents for partisan advantage.

      – The Democratic Congress’ vindictive impeachment of a former president to decapitate a populist movement of over 74 million Americans; corrosive partisan lust to expand and pack the federal courts with judicial activists, including the Supreme Court; and angling to give the District of Columbia statehood to secure more Leftist senators and a representative.

      – Our current executive sock puppet’s record-breaking torrent of job-crushing, science-denying, citizenry dividing executive orders; his pretending there was no plan for distributing the COVID-19 vaccine, while cynically plagiarizing his predecessors’ plan.

      – And, lest we forget, Mr. Biden’s mendacious invitations to “unity”—the rank hypocrisy of which gnaws at the fraying bonds of the elementary fairness that is one of the last shards of civic comity.

      We are inundated with this insanity as we are incessantly told that 80 million Americans voted for Biden. Why? Because the Left wants us to believe that those supposed 80 million Americans who voted for Biden also voted for his radical agenda.

      They didn’t.

      Do you have a source that shows it was stolen? The election was duly certified by all the Republican officials for the state.

        Tiba, why were barricades put up to keep scrutineers 3 metres from the counting?
        Following the general election debacle why weren’t precautions taken to clean up the Senate election?
        There were many videos shown of the senate election and it was a disgrace.
        When we scrutineer in Australia scrutineers from interested parties have to agree with the clerk on every single ballot. Disagreements are put aside for closer examination later.
        We have cheating but it is Dead and multiple votes. Supervising the vote count does not stop individual cheating. Our postal votes are more reliable.
        It is impossible to watch the Georgian vote and not expect the arranged outcome A narrow Democrat win. The court order to remove the barricades was only respected for a short time. What happened before the order? Why was it necessary?
        If you believe that Georgian senate election was genuine you might like to buy some shares in the Sydney Harbour Bridge online.
        I have noted that with the Trump election rheems of unfolded postal identical ballots had printed Biden. Do pens or pencils use printer ink?
        Similarly identical signatures. The only time I see identical signatures is on printed letters.

          Can you explain why a state with a Republican Governor, Republican Attorney-General, Republican Secretary of State, Republican Lower House, and Republican Upper House, certified the two senate results?

          Do they hate Trump | love Biden that much? And what about the dozens and dozens of electoral workers and volunteers? I remain very sceptical that there was any fraud … and if there was, the Republicans were very much party to it.

      There is a movement afoot to deny Trump a Presidential Library, which ALL formers have since 1939 for FDR (don’t get me started on him…).
      *****

      “The danger of Trump using a presidential library to burnish his image is far more serious, with the ex-president and his surrogates still promoting the idea that his electoral loss was somehow fraudulent. That creates an ongoing uncertainty in American public life, which Trump and even more unscrupulous actors will use to further division, inflame tension, exacerbate racism and delegitimize the American democratic system.”

      Kennicott not only calls on Congress to deny Trump any government support for a presidential library, but also says Trump should not be allowed to build one privately, calling on the public to “put pressure on corporate and other entities not to donate to any group associated with any effort to build a Trump presidential center.”

        1. Trump re-writing history in his favour
        2. The place becoming a shrine for the aggrieved and deranged
        3. Trump claiming the election was a fraud for all eternity

        It seems to me though that Congress should fund it if and only if they have final editorial and curatorial say – which I expect Team Trump would not accept.

        Anyway, he’s pretty rich – he could fund it entirely himself and put in it what he wants. But what would be in it? Golf scorecards and McDonald’s paper placemats?

            And of those who can’t handle the real world. Why on earth would a Democrat-controlled Congress write a cheque for Donald Trump to claim the election was fraudulent?

        This move to deny Trump the right to have a Presidential Library, is an absolute imperative for the Democrats and their Fascist cabal I would think.

        Their plan …as the Left’s plan always is…is to be the ones to set their bogus Left wing version of history in concrete.

        They can’t afford to have the truth play any part at all in the history Americans and the world get to read….

        ie Clinton Inc…Obama Inc …Biden Inc in all their gory details…

        …the Democrat collusion with Russia…

        …The Democrats/Clinton Campaign/Hillary’s emails/Wikileaks…and the strangely unsolved murder of Seth Rich…

        ….Biden’s close personal and lucrative business relationship with America’s most threatening adversary….as well as with other monsters around the world…

        …the killing of democracy in America before the 2020 election even got under way …the dirty deed done by BigTech and Big Finance and the rogue Deep State…to ensure the Democrats would be able to deceive enough Americans to vote for Biden to make the stealing of the election an easier task…they could probably still have stolen it if the people knew the Bidens were in bed with the CCP…but they would have needed more truckloads of bogus ballots..and more shredders etc….all of this up there in lurid detail in a Trump Presidential Library.

        There could be a display of the Dominion machines with video by the experts explaining how they were programmed to switch votes …

        There could be videos of testimony from those who signed affidavits…

        …there could be a graphic display of the judgments written by dissenting judges who nail the treachery and dereliction of duty by their fellow State judges…in refusing to hear the allegations and evidence re fraud…because they were afraid they’d have to overturn an election.

        …Bobulinski’s emails and other evidence and video of his interview with Tucker Carlson could be on display…..

        ….video of Biden proudly bragging about how he blackmailed the Ukraine leader could go into posterity…side by side with the bogus allegation re the innocent phone call that Trump was impeached for…

        …so much more to go up there on display for all the world to visit and absorb

        Pride of place in the library’s history of the 2020 election could be given to copies of ‘the naked Hunter’ with the Russian prostitutes and the crack pipe …information that had to be kept from the American people by the Democrats’ deep State….even though it told some of the sleazy story of Biden Inc…and how their Joe was the Communist Chinese Dictatorship’s pick for US President….

        The whole contents of the laptop would be a very relevant artefact…representing the Democrats and Biden’s China policy for the last decade or so and for the next four years…showing the world the reasons why in the view of the Democrats and the Deep State….the election absolutely had to be stolen, since they had to prevent many prominent people having to face accountability before the law.

        A Trump Presidential Library could be a very dangerous thing for Democrats…with all that and much more juxtaposed with Trump’s numerous legitimate and unprecedented historic triumphs..on many domestic issues and in foreign affairs.

      Tucker chose his side when he “DEMANDED” Sidney Powell show “proof” of election tampering.

      That was the night he outed himself as a turncoat.

      There were tons and thousands of miles of proof staring him in the face. From every State in the Union that was contested. And yet, he decided to be willfully blind.

      I’m still REALLY pissed off at him for helping to install Biden, because he could have been a powerhouse voice for the Truth. But he turned his back on it.

      And “Welcome to the party, Pal” just doesn’t seem to capture the revulsion I now have for him.

    As many of us have been saying, the US is heading for a lot of turmoil. One reason for that is some Democrats already feel uncomfortable with what’s happening about Biden’s EOs. Imagine what will happen as Biden applies more and more draconian measures. The only benefit coming from that is he will be making Trump look better and better. That trend has already started. Imagine what will happen if that trend continues for say a year! It’s now becoming apparent that the Democrats who stole the election have shot themselves in the foot.

      This is the week that Reddit became a greater menace to the modern world than Donald Trump’s defunct Twitter feed. Or at least that’s what the major media trying to hold on to their three readers would have you think.

        American politicians are different to ours. They often side with the other side. Look at how many Republicans are siding with the Democrats to try and impeach Trump. It can and does work both ways. Regardless of that the Democrats do rule the show for now but the more mistakes they continue to make the deeper the grave they are digging for themselves. It doesn’t require a rocket scientists to figure out Biden will very likely end up being the most hated President of all time.

    The projection of racial hate is a public psy-op acted out by the owned MSM for the means of justifying the implementation of hard left political control measures over a population that has enjoyed freedoms other people can only dream of.

    Australians are continuously bombarded with anti white, colonial, male, patriarchy, stories everyday through all media pushing the narrative for radical change or we all remain ignorant and bad people, Australia day is a particularly busy time in the hate season with this gem from their ABC,

    The whole thing reeks of false flag psy-op material but as long as most of the people repeat it as “news” then the jobs done, what the people fail to realise is when all the bad undesirable people are dealt with now and in the future who will speak for them when their imagined “ism” is deemed unnecessary for society?

    “Baiting, panicked, or just crazy?”

    Of those three descriptors the last one, Crazy, is my pick, although the others may also be popular.

    A Washington Post article that I flicked through is typical of the couldn’t care less approach of the deception/public information industry today.

    The article breathlessly detailed “confidential sources” describing the FBI monitoring “White Supremacists” planning the convoy to D.C. for the Trump Rally.

    What the article makes clear is that the FBI had several days notice that some of the convoy might be a problem.

    And yet: security outside the Capitol was minimal, and strangely, many of those under FBI scrutiny got into the building and were possibly even let in.

    Unfortunately the FBI ran out of personpower and couldn’t investigate that “letting in”, maybe next time.

    The following question might be seen as improper but, could WaPo now release a similar summary of the FBI investigations into the extraordinary BLM Antifa etc destruction/insurrection in the Democrat run cities like Portland Oregon.

    The world is dancing on thin ice when government institutions like the fbi develop selective vision.

    The lack of action by the FBI in preparation for the things they knew were coming to D.C. is incredible.

    What happened to America, it’s lost.

      The Constitutional Republic died on Jan 20 2021. It’s now dependent on the people to revive it, if they so desire it. Time will tell but I suspect there will be enough people who desire to get back to the Constitutional Republic. If that fails then Federation will fail eventually and thus the union breaks apart. That’s the only two options; one the Constitutional Republic is restored; two, the union breaks apart. The current situation of being in between the two can’t last very long.

        PeterS, agreed. The likely result will be either separation into at least 2 republics OR NOT A CIVIL war but a peaceful revolution against the oligarchs (similar to the current stock market actions) and/or a violent revolution against the DEEP STATE to re-establish the Constitution to its historical place.

        Another peaceful political option is creation of a 3rd political party with 1 or 2 simple goals: 1) term limits for Congress ~80% of US voters currently support this; and 2) re-establishment of CONSTITUTIONAL Rule of Law (mainly Freedom of Speech) a majority of US voters support this.

        Use of these 2 simple political goals make the 3rd part an immediate winner. Media, Deep State political attacks and Oligarchical attacks would just identify the targets of corruption.

      Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano spoke of masonic globalism. The Freemasons have lodges particulary for the Police and others for the Judges. According to Mick Oxley Scotland Yard and the British Judiciary have many freemasons involved. There are Freemason lodges in Perth, one is the Justice Lodge. Long time FBI Director Edgar Hoover was a Master Mason and also said to hold their 33rd Degree. The Victorian Police Force that went after George Pell would indicate freemasonry control. The irrational behavior of the FBI is another example of freemasonry in control. The six generals of the US Chiefs of Staff would be another example of freemasonry involvement. Barry Solero is said to be a freemason of the Prince Hall variant

        Len:
        Which Masonic lot are you thinking about? There are a whole raft of them. The major one in Australia is the Scottish Rite (I hope I have got that right not being a mason) which is slowly dying. I understand that there are an Irish lodge, a Swedish one and the Grand Orient of France and various odd spinoffs such as the Rosacrucians. There were various other ones in past times, and in Italy where the P4 were implicated in criminal and/or revolutionary activities. The Lodge in England is heavily influenced by the Royal Family and the Establishment, who aren’t keen on revolution.
        As for the Catholic Church they were against the Masons in the 18TH and 19TH centuries when the Masons organisations (note plural) wanted to end church domination of the State, esp. in France and Italy, but some years ago (40?) the then Pope allowed Catholics to join a lodge.
        Harking back 50 years with hearsay is hardly strong evidence, almost as weak as belief in Man Made Global Warming.

          Archbishop Vigano is up to speed with these things. The Vatican has one of the best Intelligence organisations.
          Although the Pope allowed some older mason converts to remain masons, this was not the ideal.I received a book recently entitled “From Paganism to Christ” by the late Reverend Mick Oxley. Mick Oxley had been a master mason etc. His youngest daughter pleaded him to come out of freemasonry.Mick had been a Wing Commander in the RAF. He left freemasonry and migrated to the USA. He quotes the Anglican Synod of NSW. “Freemansonry and Christianity are fundamentally and irreconcilably incompatible. Freemasonry teaches and upholds a system of false religious and spiritual beliefs that are contrary to Biblical Christianity” (Anglican Church 46th Synod, Sydney Australia 20 Oct 2003)

    Can the technically inclined here illuminate me as to the amount (square Kilometere) of Solar, and the number of 6kw wind turbines that would need to be installed per day in Australia till 2050 for Australia to reach net zero emissions by 2050. This needs to include Transport as we all transition to EVs.
    I tried this out and came up with astronomical figures.

      Graeme No.3

      Murray,

      no amount of wind turbines and solar panels would enable Australia to reach net zero, as the wind doesn’t always blow nor the sun shine at night. There are about 2 periods of 3 days a year when renewables generation slumps. The UK and Germany, which are more “advanced” than us, are having problems keeping the lights on, esp. with Germany shutting down nuclear and France having a number of nuclear stations off-line.
      For starters those 6kW turbines would average 1.8kW output at best. Probably less as the more turbines packed into an area the less output. Secondly electricity generation is only about 32% of Australia’s emissions, but that generation has to increase by multiple times when we all switch to electric cars, electric heating instead of gas and/or hydrogen generating.
      Then there is the cost of batteries, pumped storage etc. plus transmission lines out to Woop Whoop etc.

      Systemic Contingencies – They All Knew – Lessons From Spygate About Severity of DC Corruption

      Posted on January 30, 2021 by Sundance

      To expand on the awakening…. and based on a recent call for clarity… here is some brutally obvious points about DC that connect through the stop-Trump operation commonly known as “spygate”.

      Robert Mueller had two goals as special counsel.

      Goal #1 was to continue the fraudulent DOJ/FBI “Stop Trump” operation initiated by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and their crew technically named Crossfire Hurricane.

      Goal #2 was to bury the illegal action; to create the cover-up needed for everything that took place in the “Stop Trump” operation.

      It is the second goal that most people never reconciled; however, it is also that second goal that’s the most important. Everyone in DC knew Mueller’s objective. Every person in every branch of government and every federal agency knew Mueller’s real purpose.

      The entire system was united against the ‘outsider’ that Trump represented. Every action taken by Rosenstein, Barr, Wray, Bowditch, Boente, Horowitz and the special counsel team itself was done purposefully, because they knew the Mueller/Weissmann objective was to cover-up all of the unlawful schemes previously used against Trump.

      Generally people accept that Mueller Inc was in place to target Trump. However, the lesser admitted reality is that Mueller was in place to cover for the branches, agencies and institutions that were part of the originating targeting.

      All leaks to the media, by any entity – including the special counsel, were purposeful with this goal in mind. All information released was done purposefully with this goal in mind. All action taken by those in support of the Mueller unit were taken with full knowledge of what that second goal and intent was.

      No-one was ever unaware of the purpose of Robert Mueller.

      Everyone knew.

      That list of everyone includes: Bill Barr, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lindsey Graham, Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, Mitch McConnell, every member of the Senate intel committee; every member of the House intel committee… and yes, including John Durham and every member of every DOJ office everywhere.

      The legislative branch knew. The judicial branch knew. The executive branch knew. The FISA court knew… All of the insiders knew the Mueller probe was one big vacuum to suck up all of the evidence that would have exposed a corrupt system to We The People.

      They did all of this because the scale of the originating scandal was so severe it would be almost impossible for our nation to cope with the consequences. That fearful knowledge is also what’s behind the reality we are currently seeing with thousands of National Guard troops guarding Washington DC…. just in case. Another systemic contingency.

    Growing evidence Capitol assault was planned weakens incitement case against Trump, experts say

    If Trump “didn’t know about it, they had planned it without him, then you’re missing the causal relationship,” said Alan Dershowitz. “It would have happened without his speech as well. So that would be relevant on the issue of causation.”

    Growing evidence of advance planning and coordination of the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol undermines claims that the rioters were responding spontaneously to former President Trump’s speech to supporters about a mile and a half away, according to legal and intelligence experts.

    As Senate Democrats mull their options for convicting or censuring Trump and banning him from future public office for allegedly inciting insurrection, experts said their incitement case against him was dealt a severe blow this week when federal prosecutors charged three men in the Capitol attack, alleging their communication and coordination dated back to November.

    For speech to meet the threshold of incitement, a speaker must, first, indicate a desire for violence and, second, demonstrate a capability or reasonable indication of capability to carry out the violence, according to Kevin Brock, former assistant director of intelligence for the FBI.

    In Trump’s case, Brock said, there were neither.

    In an interview Thursday, Brock told Just the News he listened to Trump’s entire Jan. 6 speech. “I didn’t hear a single word about — or anything that would trigger a reasonable person to believe that he was inciting— violence,” he said. “He even used the words ‘peaceful’ and ‘respectful.'”

    Brock thinks that Trump “was caught by surprise at what happened” and was probably unaware of the segment of the crowd intent on violence. That was “a failure, frankly, on the intelligence that he should have been provided as president of the United States,” Brock said. “We shouldn’t be in a position where knuckleheads like Proud Boys and Oath Keepers can plan a disruptive violent event and it catches us by surprise.”

      From Above

      Still unanswered are questions about how much House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell knew in advance of the potential for violence and when they knew it. Also unresolved are lingering questions surrounding the Pentagon’s pre-attack offer to send National Guard troops to reinforce the Capitol Police.

      The hard facts driving impeachment fall apart

      President Trump, who was impeached, no less, in the waning days of his presidency for supposedly starting a riot at the Capitol, is starting to look less and less culpable for what his enemies claimed.

      A pipe bomb planted by rioters intended to distract police forces ahead of the Jan. 6 rally Trump spoke at turns out to have been planted on Jan. 5, according to the FBI.

      According to The Hill:

      The FBI released a new wanted poster on Friday revealing that two pipe bombs that were placed near the Democratic and Republican party headquarters and discovered during the Capitol riots on Jan. 6 were planted there the night before.

      According to the newly released information, the bombs were placed between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5.

      Which pretty much makes the leftist impeachment premise about Trump inciting the riot now kind of a joke.

      The case for ‘treason’ and more specifically ‘incitement to riot’ which is the single charge upon which President Trump was impeached in the House, is now a lot harder to justify in the Senate, which votes ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether to convict.

      How, exactly, does one incite a mob to march and riot into the Capitol, when the operation was already all set up by wretched riot-minded plotters the night before, and who’ve since been caught?

We are 100 seconds away from the apocalypse according to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, so by the time you read this, by my calculations, we will all be dead. Rest in peace, those of you who can, I still have a meeting with my editor to explain how our trip to the afterlife doesn’t mean he can forgo my payment.

    I guess the world has been ending since it began (I don’t remember if this quote is from Socrates or Meghan Markle). Almost every civilization has believed that the apocalypse was on the horizon, but when all is said and done, the only end that came was that of their prophets, who have ended up six feet under while the world carried on around them, glowing in spring and gilding in autumn. Only one visionary has managed to survive all the failed apocalypses, from the Stone Age to today, and that is John Kerry. And he keeps as well as his wife’s ketchup when left open for six months in the shoe cabinet.

    The first great “we’re all going to die” in history was made viral by the Romans. Rome’s founding myth included its own apocalypse.

    As for climate change, Biden is going to solve it with a huge commitment to green energy, which, for the moment, is leaving lots of families unemployed — incidentally also the Democrats’ strange way of creating jobs. John Kerry, the fortune teller, who is once again roaming the city, will take care of everything, so my advice is that, while the panic lasts, keep an eye on your wallet, especially if you hear his private jet flying overhead.

    When all is said and done, that these swindlers advance the Doomsday Clock only means that we are going to get hit hard with taxes

      The words I read were “reducing carbon pollution and addressing global warming.” In other words, spend $ trillions reducing carbon pollution

      Biden’s other big move this week was an order on climate policy that‘s a blueprint for his multifaceted approach to reducing carbon pollution and addressing global warming. It has provisions across many Cabinet departments, including a call for new analyses on how climate change affects U.S. national security. The order begins the process of transforming the government’s fleet of 600,000 vehicles to all-electric cars and trucks.

    Jo,

    We live in ‘interesting times’ that’s for sure. There are so many comments I would like to make in response to what Tucker Carlson has touched on in this video, but feel the appropriate response was written over two thousand years ago when the Roman civilisation was breaking up – and in my understanding because of the same or similar ‘money’ problems.

    BABYLON, THE GREAT HARLOT
    The prostitution of the role of money in the marketplace.

    “The Grand Madam of Babylon was drunk and in maudlin mood. She sat on her throne beside the meeting-place of the abundant waters from many rivers. All peoples, all nations of every language congregated here in submissive obeisance to her. All the kings and rulers of the world had come to her and committed fornication with her. All the dwellers of the earth had offered tribute to her and become drunk with the wine of her dalliance and adulterous deceit.

    Once more she would go in triumph through the streets and receive the adulation of her worshippers. Once more she would ride out into the desert and survey the wilderness her greed and financial follies had created. She called for her scarlet beast with its seven heads and ten horns and trappings scrawled all over with blasphemous graffiti.

    Clad in purple and scarlet and glittering with every kind of fine jewellery and precious ornament she ventured forth, holding up a golden winecup filled to the brim with the filth of her abominations and her harlotry’s lewd ministrations.

    A broad gaudy band was tied around her forehead. On it was inscribed her enigmatic name, Babylon the Great, the Grand Madam of all Whoredom’s Abominations.

    Her journeying complete, Madam returned to her royal seat by the meeting of the waters. All the world was hers. All peoples bowed down before her throne and worshipped her. Every language sang her praises. Why then did she have forebodings for the future? Why were her dreams now plagued with visions of impending doom, of disease and death, of sadness and mourning, of famine and fire? Was not every nation drunk with the intoxicating wine of her fornication? Had not every king and ruler of the earth sought her dalliance and enjoyed the favours of her prostitution? Were not all the merchants in the world’s marketplaces delighted with their riches obtained through her debaucheries?

    She reassured herself that her throne was secure. She was Queen. She would never be dispossessed. She would never be as a lonely widow and know tears of sorrow. Last night she had visions of dense smoke clouds everywhere, whilst fire raged in her Capital, Babylon, totally destroying it in the space of a single hour. She had seen the traders and merchants whom she had sponsored. They remained standing at a safe distance, mourning and weeping in distress at the destruction of her city and their massive loss of merchandise and trade. They had feared to become involved in her own agony as she watched all her finery, her gold, her jewels and priceless pearls, her linen, her works of art, her adornments, all that made her life of luxury the envy of all other rulers and inhabitants of the earth, all destroyed in one single hour of raging inferno.

    She had seen, too, trading boats keeping well clear of her port. All their captains and sailors watched the billowing smoke and loudly lamented the demise of that magnificent city which had brought such wealth to those who owned fleets at sea. Gone, in her dream, was the sound of the music and songs of her harpists and minstrels, of her flute-players and trumpeters. No more were craftsmen in her employ, no more grinding at her mill, no lights, no voices of newlyweds.

    There had been a time when the princes of the earth were her traders and all the nations were under her spell. Now, in her nightmare, she was being doubly repaid in her own coin for all that she had exacted unjustly from others. Torture and anguish were outmatching by far her former orgies and proud displays. She was being made to drink a double dose of her own poisonous mixture.”

    A paraphrased interpretation of Chapters I 7, 18 and 19 of The Revelation of St. John the Divine, published around 100 A.D. Rome gradually finally collapsed around 500 A.D.

    The leader installed by the coup d’état, Biden, signed a piece of paper his handlers put in front of him that made it illegal for US government agencies to refer to C19 by its place of origin because it’s “racist”.

    Where does that viewpoint put these diseases and viruses named after Australian places?

    Ross River fever.
    Hendra virus.
    Bairnsdale ulcer.

    The hysteria from the Democrats is the setting of the stage for weapons confiscation.
    There will be a mass casualty shooting to get the people on side. It won’t matter who does it, the media will portray it as a White Supremacy plot.
    The Democrats know they have a limited window to disarm the citizens and they have been emboldened by the lack of reaction by the Right to the election theft.

      Yes. The First Amendment rights of Americans have already been violated by the partnership between Big Tech and the leaders of the US coup de’état.

      Now they’re working on the Second Amendment. They are probably right now training and equipping a terrorist(s) or a criminally insane individual(s) to commit one or multiple simultaneous atrocities.

      It’s basically a rerun of the Nazis coming to power and the Reichstag fire but with the benefit of modern technology.

    Apparently the Chinese communists are no longer a threat since President Trump was unlawfully removed from office due to fraudulent voting.

    Corrupt governance, killing the economy, trying to kill the very ‘Democracy’ they say put them in power; misuse of defence forces against civilians demanding explanations for lost jobs; destruction of people who have different ideas or simply seek to read alternative views; a President that appears incapable of even understanding the outcomes of all those directives he is signing off on, but is presented as a useful tool for those behind him.

    Does anyone really believe the USA isn’t in the hands of rogues determined to pull it down, kill all its traditional values and institute a nationally lethal marxist agenda over the people. The left extreme, along with the globalists, know this has to be a rapid execution of the old traditions and rapid assumption of all power because it is exposed in just 2 years to interim elections that have the potential to toss them out of the House and the Senate.

    Those troops aren’t in the Capitol buildings for nothing. Until now, such a move would have been regarded with utmost anathema by the American people. Is that due to the mass loss of jobs due to signed off policies by Biden so far? Or is there something more sweeping coming in February over which the Democrats are sweating. Never seen such governance in a Democracy, with an absolute hatred for people of alternative thought and beliefs, in a long lifetime.

      The hypocrisy is breathtaking. Are these the same Federal troops Trump used to stop the real riot outside the White House? The outrage of the Democrats when Trump used Federal troops in Washington was as fake as the idea that he held the bible upside down. Where is the press and Democrat outrage this time?

      The fact that Biden is slave to the extremist left is becoming as obvious to the Democrats as to the Republicans. Never has a President started office with such low popularity and it will plummet as millions of jobs vanish and massive invasion on the Mexican border commences. The presumption that all Democrat voters agree with extreme left activist policies is absurd and sock puppet Biden is not doing anything for moderate Democrats. It will be very hard for the media to hide his unpopularity or for congress not to act in unison to undo his unilateral decisions.

      Cancelling the Keystone XL pipeline is borderline insane. It does not reduce American oil comsumption. We know the massive losses in a crisis but where is the gain for anyone in America? Like those fantasy replacement Green jobs. The anger in lockdown America at the instant attack on the US economy and jobs will be great.

      Google’s amazingly flippant justification..

      Why is the Keystone XL pipeline bad?

      No matter how you look at it, Keystone XL would be bad for wildlife, especially endangered species. Many imperiled species live along the 1,200-mile proposed pipeline’s path and in areas where tar sands oil is produced. If the pipeline is built, rare wildlife will be hurt and killed.


      How will the Keystone XL pipeline affect the environment?
      Ultimately, construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline could have detrimental effects on the environment, such as the destruction of ecosystems, the loss of habitats, and the pollution of nearby rivers.

      And you are told that oil pipelines always pollute nearby rivers. You would think there was no incentive for oil companies to ensure that pipelines do not leak.

      Is that it? The economic War on America has started. Global warming carbon pollution oil coal virus bad. China good. And the virus is not infective, human to human.

      The cost in support of an already unpopular new President will be immense.

    Big Tech doesn’t have a single technological thing that can’t be duplicated by a 4 year college graduate (or someone with 10000 hours experience).

    They lured people in with early entry, “innovation” (obvious permutations of IT patterns), and openness.

    Once established and proven politically useful, they commited a huge bait and switch.

    Their time is coming up. They are no longer useful to half the publc.

    Death of corporations is inevitable when they no longer serve their purpose.

    They will be replaced and they know it, and so they will try every dirty trick possible, including legal/political means they have now gained.

    I’ve been studying markets and companies for 15 years, and I think I understand critical turning points when companies commit suicide with bad decisions. History doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes.

    Phones without Google/Apple will prevail in the future.
    New social media alternatives will compete for new top positions in alternative app stores.

    It won’t be a quick easy switch, but it will happen.

    Apple and Google will become MySpace and AOL – vapid left-wing echo chambers.

      I agree. We are witnessing an old order dying. Perhaps it includes the demise of central government. People now have very powerful tools to self-organise. Inventions created to keep government relevant, such as climate change, are losing lustre. We appear to stand at a crossroad, choosing between an overdeveloped tyranny or more freedom and self-responsibility than one might previously have dreamt.

    Joe Biden’s disastrous first week in office with his 40 executive orders says everything about his agenda. While Trump’s agenda was all about America First and trying to help Americans become independent of big government, Biden’s agenda is all about trying to make Americans dependent on big government, which is what socialist government do to control the people.

    Mukden (1931), Reichstag (1933), Smolny Institute (1934), Gleiwitz (1939):

      Owen, the Mukden Incident involved the press (MSM) onboard from the start. Several weeks before the incident was staged, the two most powerful newspaper chain editors were asked to meet with a general (who was part of the Cherry Blossom secret society, which infested the army officer’s corps). Taketara Ogata (I’m using English name order convention here) of the Tokyo newspapers and Shingo Takaishi of the Osaka newspapers were brought into the plot to direct public opinion as the army proceeded with its offensive in the weeks following the false flag operation.

      The Mukden Incident was part of an overall coup attempt to turn Japan into a communist dictatorship. The overthrow of the Government was originally scheduled for March of 1931 but was postponed until Oct. Then it was discovered beforehand in the wake of the Mukden Incident and the key people arrested. (but they would escape justice indicating just how corrupt the Japanese deep state was already.)

      The Mukden Incident was originally planned to happen concurrently with the planned Oct. coup, but the Emperor got word that something was up. Hirohito called in the Army Minister, Gen. Minami, instructing him to send orders to leaders of the army in Manchuria bypassing the usual channels to stop whatever was up. Unfortunately, the man, Gen. Takekawa, Minami decided to send as courier was part of the conspiracy. Before embarking he paid a visit to the Cherry Blossom founder, and also a member of the Black Dragon Society, an army officer by the name of Hashimoto. Hashimoto sent a message to his agents in Manchuria which read:” Plot discovered. Takekawa coming. Suggest move up time table so it happens before he arrives.”

      The Mukden Incident was a brazen example of deep state actors acting in defiance of their own legitimate governmental leaders.

        The Japanese MSM also played a key role in the Marco Polo Bridge Incident and its aftermath. It was revealed during 1964 that the troops who fired the shots that initiated the exchange of gun fire were agents sent by Mao and embedded among the KMT troops.

        Actually, the initial fighting on July 7th 1937 at the Marco Polo Bridge did not succeed in starting the war between Japan and the Chinese Nationals. The Chinese general and the Japanese general on the scene brought things under control. Three more times Mao’s agents tried to restart the fighting, but did not succeed. Finally, Chiang Kai Shek himself issued orders to the Chinese command on the scene to attack. However, the Chinese general send a message back to Chiang that there was no need to attack and disaster had been adverted. Chiang reiterated his order, but the Chinese general did not attack.

        We now know that two days earlier Mao and Chiang had entered into a secret agreement to start a war with Japan. Mao needed to get the Japanese out of China before he could finish the communist take over of China.

        Almost like they were responding to a command, the Japanese MSM began beating the war drums. Within two weeks Japanese public opinion had turned in favor of war, if there were to be a further incident, to the point that it threatened to topple the new Konoe cabinet.

        Then on July 28th Chiang ordered an attack on Japanese troops guarding a railway station called Lang Fang. By the next morning a full scale war had erupted.

    “Tucker Carlson wonders why the Democrats are recklessly overreacting to no known plots of white supremacists and Domestic Terrorists. He calls it fear or panic”

    Leftists have always used fear
    to get the public to demand
    that their government
    DO SOMETHING NOW.

    Examples:
    (Unjustified) Fear of climate change.
    (Excessive) Fear of COVID-19
    (Unjustified) Fear of white supremacists.

    If the general population lives in fear, they are more easily controlled, and will allow their political leaders to seize more power (for their own good, they have been convinced).

    Leftists need a boogeyman, or two, to get the power they want. The boogeyman can even be fake, such as a “climate emergency”. but if enough people believe in it, it works as well as a real crisis.

    is almost always a false front
    for the urge to rule.”
