White House: Clinton Will Not Be Indicted Over Emails ‘Based on What We Know’

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Friday that Hillary Clinton would not be indicted over her private email scandal “based on what we know from the Department of Justice.”

And since what we know is that she violated every known or even conceivable law and regulation on the subject of Classified Documents, Handling Of, I guess that’s that.

I’m so shocked that it even went so far. She’s such a sweet little old lady, why can’t those bad men leave her alone?

Also, the obligatory note that if you or I had done a tiny fraction of the bad things this sweet little old lady has done, we’d be in a supermax a long time ago and for a long time to come.

And, reportedly, she ‘apologized’, too!

Seems to me there was some General who did 1/100th of her security violations who is now serving time and paid a huge fine.  And many others.  But I guess I’m mistaken.

Well, I guess THAT’S over…

New World Order?

YES, WE ARE ALMOST DONE.
JUST ONE ELECTION DECIDES OUR FATE….
ALMOST THERE


There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to
create a socialist/communist State.  The first is the most important.

5 OF THE 8 ARE DONE – THE LAST 3 ARE ALMOST THERE???

1.  Healthcare:  “Control Healthcare and you control the People.”  DONE!!!
2.  Poverty:  “Increase the Poverty level as high as possible.”  Poor
People are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing
everything for them to live.  DONE!!!
3.  Debt:  “Increase the National Debt to an unsustainable level.”  That
way you are able to increase Taxes, and this will produce more Poverty.
DONE!!!
4.  Gun Control:  “Remove the ability to defend themselves from the
Government.”  That way you are able to create a Police State – total local
control.  ALMOST THERE!!!
5.  Welfare:  “Take control of every aspect of their lives” (Food, Livestock, Housing, and Income).  DONE!!!
6.  Education:  “Take control of what People read & listen to take control of what Children learn in School.”  ALMOST THERE!!!
7.  Religion “Remove faith in God from the Government and School.” ALMOST THERE!!!
8.  Class Warfare:  “Divide the People into the Wealthy against the Poor.
Racially divide.”  This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to Tax the Wealthy with full support of the voting Poor.  DONE!!!

 The bases are all covered!  We are ripe for the New World Order.

I’ve no idea where this list originated.  I’ve seen similar lists for many years, even before the existence of the Internet.  Some purporting to be born of the Communist Party of the United States after WWI (?!)

Regardless, it does appear to be a suitable group of steps necessary for fundamental change from this Constitutional Republic to something progressing past it.

Fundamental change – where have I heard that before?

Domino Effect?

dominoesAs of Friday a new California law took effect that will allow the police to seize private, legally-owned weapons for up to three weeks without charges or allowing the citizen to contest the seizure. With one state down is your state next?

Are we surprised?

NO.

Between the IRS seizing assets making you prove you don’t owe, and they are rightfully yours, and the wealth of asset forfeitures, NO, I am NOT surprised.

Worried and angry?  YES!

Soon coming to a State near you?

Let’s Rename New Orleans!

( Stolen in full from Brock Townsend)

LET’S RENAME NEW ORLEANS!

Via Anthony “Good evening friends, I think this blog, sent to me by a dear friend, sums up my feelings exactly. It’s also a great history lesson. Enjoy. Take care, Anthony”

https://i2.wp.com/neutralgroundnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Lee-Circle-in-New-Orleans.jpg

I strongly approve of renaming the racist Lee Circle and tearing down the Robert E. Lee statue. I have complied a brief list of other streets, statues, institutions and buildings that also need to go.

First off, let’s rename the city New Orleans! Since the city was named after the Duke of Orleans, who had numerous affairs, rumors of murder and incestuous relations with his daughter… He also won the family farting contest and could fart “like a flute,” but to be fair that could be viewed as a positive… But I am most certain that he was probably an elitist and a racist. The name has got to go.

Let’s tear down the Margaret Haughery statue, honoring the woman who worked tirelessly for the city’s orphans and donated thousands to them, because she owned slaves.

Let’s deem any business that uses Marie Laveau’s name as racist because she owned slaves.

Let’s rename the historic Faubourg Treme, the first U.S. residential neighborhood for free blacks (and listed on the National Register of Historic Places) because it was named after Claude Treme, who shot and killed a slave.

Let’s rename Faubourg Marigny because it was named after Bernard Marigny, who despite offering low interest rates to free people of color, owned slaves. And rumor has it his first wife has an absolute “beast” to her slaves. Let’s also eliminate all of the streets he named to be on the safe side.

Let’s rename Wilkinson Street because it was named after James Wilkinson, a traitor and a spy for Spain.

Let’s rename Milneburg (as well as the streets named after Milne) because Alexander Milne, who also gave hundreds of thousands to orphanages, also owned slaves (although he emancipated some and even bought them houses). But he owned slaves – so he’s got to go.

Let’s rename Poydras Street because Julien Poydras owned slaves (although he bequeathed freedom to over 700 slaves and donated heavily to Charity Hospital, asylums, and orphanages) – sorry, he’s out.

Let’s rename General Ogden – he was involved in the White League.

Let’s also eliminate all streets named after plantation owners and their families – the list is huge but a good place to start is Bartholomew, Caffin (who also briefly owned the LaLaurie Mansion – before the atrocities, but nevertheless), Delachaise, Foucher, Burthe, Antonine, Dufossat, Valmont, Bellecastle, Robert, Soniat, Avart, Egania, Lizardi, Hurst, Roman, Eleanore, Joseph, Millaudon, Peniston, Poeyfarre, Villere, Clark, Toledano…

For obvious reasons, let’s also get rid of the street names Jefferson (after Thomas Jefferson), Jefferson Davis, and Jackson Avenue (as well as Jackson Square).

The Ursuline nuns owned slaves – let’s tear down their convent and wipe them from the history books as well. Those women have got to go.

Let’s rename Lafitte Street after the pirate Jean Lafitte– come on, who knows how many men he killed, women he raped, and slaves he traded. Let’s also boycott the bar.

Let’s rename Hennessey Street after Police Chief David C. Hennessy, this guy obviously hated Italians.

I am not sure if Isaac Delgado or Judah Touro owned slaves, but probably. They were wealthy merchants and landowners during their time. To be on the safe side let’s rename Delgado Street as well as the community college and rename Touro Hospital and the street. Touro gave thousands of dollars to the New Orleans Public Library but it is not named after him. Phew. But best to get rid of everything their name is attached to, besides, they were Jewish.

Let’s rename Howard Street after Charles T. Howard– he brought gambling to Louisiana and was totally corrupt.

Let’s rename Camp Street – it was originally called “Campo de Negro” where slaves were bought to be sold.

We should probably rename Race Street because even though it was named after a planned racetrack – way too controversial.

Let’s rename Sophie Wright – she was a cripple and probably a virgin since she never married and you know what that means (LESBIAN)!

Let’s rename all of the Muses Streets and anything after Greek mythology – PAGANS!

Let’s rename Magazine Street because many historians believe it was named for magasin a poudre (ammunition warehouse) and I am totally against guns.

How about renaming everything after numbers? Of course, forsaking number 13 and 69 for obvious reasons.

I would suggest naming a street after black Creole Alexander Aristide Mary, who fought against the Separate Car Act and for the rights of blacks during Reconstruction, but… he killed himself and is obviously going to hell.

This is just a small and modest list. I know there are hundreds of others that need to be renamed, changed, torn down, but if anything comes out of this for God’s sake – LET’S RENAME NEW ORLEANS!

Yes, it’s reductio ad absurdum.
Not to mention, any who proudly served  in the Confederate military are considered Americans, by an act of Congress!  And any monuments erected for them may not be legally removed – by Law!
But it point’s out the flaws in ubiquitous political correctness and a dearth in historical knowledge on the part of the politically-correct mob.
Ignorant fools!

Lincoln Lenin

See what I did there?

Like most Baby Boomers raised in American public schools, I believed what I was told – that Washington was The Father of Our Country and Lincoln Preserved the Union and freed the slaves.

I still believe Washington was mostly good – the Whiskey Rebellion aside, but Lincoln is much more complicated.

An early statist and progressive?

Setting the stage for T.R. and Woodrow Wilson.  And then F.D.R., Clinton and Obama.

Just as the Fabian socialists wanted…

The Seeds of American Communism

https://rosswolfe.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/fuckyeah.jpeg?w=458&h=360
 Lincoln, Lenin and Stalin: Communist Party USA meeting in Chicago, 1939

The full power of the War Department was utilized to secure Lincoln’s reelection in November 1864, according to Assistant Secretary of War Charles A. Dana. In early 1863 he was sent to spy on Grant to determine his acceptance of Radical ideals and thus suitable for higher command; it was Dana who ordered Jefferson Davis manacled in Fortress Monroe. As a young man Dana experimented with utopian fantasies at the infamous Brook Farm commune at West Roxbury, Massachusetts.
Bernhard Thuersam, http://www.Circa1865.com   The Great American Political Divide

The Seeds of American Communism

“. . . [O]ne notable European communist of 1848 who was a member of the Union Army was Maj. Robert Rosa [who was] an early member of the New York Communist Club. The following preamble of the [Club’s] constitution gives insights into the worldview of these early American communists:

“The members of Communist Club reject every religious belief, no matter in what guise it may appear . . . [and] recognize the perfect equality of all men, regardless of color and sex, and therefore they strive above all to abolish private property, inherited or accumulated . . . “

These early American socialists/communists did indeed reject accepted orthodox religion, but they maintained a near “religious” faith in their utopian dreams.

The very foundation of modern-day liberalism/socialism was laid by the many and various utopian ideologues of the nineteenth century. The fact that these utopian socialists/communists found Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party to be objects worthy of their zeal and efforts speaks volumes as to why post-Appomattox America has adopted most if not all of the early American socialist/communist goals.

Universal suffrage was a dream of every socialist/communist movement in Europe and America; even Karl Marx spoke in favor of universal suffrage; the same can be said to be true about a progressive income tax, abolition of the rights of inheritance, a system of national education, centralized banking, and many other socialist/communist measures.

Socialism and communism did not come to these United States from Russia; these concepts were already well-known by many Northern intellectuals of the nineteenth century. The preponderance of communistic societies of the United States were located in Northern States before the war. According to Theodore Draper [author of Roots of American Communism] by 1923 most communists in America could be found in cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, Cleveland and Detroit. Note that we do not find Charleston, New Orleans or any other Southern city mentioned in the above listed cities.

The thought of Lincoln as the first American president to have had a communist sympathizer working in a key part of his administration is and should be shocking to all Americans. Charles Dana, who visited Karl Marx in 1848, was an associate of Horace Greeley and an early convert to the communistic Fourier movement. Dana served as assistant secretary of war under Edwin Stanton during the Lincoln administration, thus becoming the first communist, or at least the first communist sympathizer, to serve in high position within the government of the United States.

Be that as it may, the result of Lincoln’s victory over the South was to give the utopian dreamers a victory for big government. As a result, all Americans today are living in a nation far removed from that envisioned by the founding fathers. At this juncture there is one question that stands begging to be asked: “Can the adverse effects of the socialists’ victory at Appomattox be removed from this nation?”

(Red Republicans and Lincoln’s Marxists, Walter Kennedy & Al Benson, Jr., iUniverse, Inc., 2007, pp. 24-26)

Of course, this doesn’t mean that BIGGOV ideas were absent in the South, just that they lost.
And we all know who writes the history books.  At least those for public schools.

AH! The Virtues Of A Higher Education!

Freedom of Speech and all that…

Bet Che’ t-shirts aren’t banned…because it’s for the children!

I love how Lenin’s useful idiots clamor for freedom of speech, and protection from other’s speech simultaneously.  Not realizing that if the agenda they so love comes into power they will no longer have that freedom!

MAROONS!

Appearances Can Be Deceiving

Things are seldom what they seem, skim milk masquerades as cream.  –  W. S. Gilbert

I saw a guy when I was at the store the other day.  And I recoiled.  Straggly, dirty hair, unkempt beard.  I didn’t get close enough, but I’d have bet my grocery money he smelled.

Of course, he might have been the kindest, sweetest gentleman on the planet!

I’ve gone to the store after working around the house and in the yard. Sweaty, dirty.  Unshaven.  With my Shao-Lin Temple style beard.  I’m certain, to the uninformed, I must appear as a derelict.

And I’d like to think I’m a good guy(?)

But, we all react to external appearances.  It’s in our DNA to do so.

Fast-forward to watching TV the other night.  The premiere of Chicago Med, completing the triumvirate of Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.  With some of the same crossover characters and episodes, I’m sure…

And you know me and my love of character actors!

And there’s this guy.  Tiny, wormy, the kind who makes my skin crawl, just by showing up.

And I think to myself, “I know this guy!  A great character actor – always plays the same slimy weasel!”

Then he is introduced on the show…

Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago!rahm

You remember, previously The President’s Chief-of-Staff, who returned back to the nest to run for Mayor.

The guy who (in)famously said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Sometimes, appearances are NOT deceiving!

It may offer the best political science course on campus, but the lessons are lost on bureaucrats: UC-San Diego’s fabled “Che Cafe” is awash in red ink and in need of a bailout.

Students have run the restaurant, named for Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, for 34 years, but they’ve steered it into the ground. Boasting of “exorbitantly low” prices, the vegan co-op and concert venue that once hosted an up-and-coming Nirvana has cost the student body nearly $1 million over the years, and isn’t kept up to fire or safety codes. The ragtag band of volunteer staffers, who call themselves a “collective,” faced eviction in March, but have persuaded the school to save their beloved stronghold.

Hey!  Income redistribution, man!
I want to go to the local university here, and open an unsanitary, unprofitable, collectivist health-food hole, and name it after another mass murderer! It’s certain to be a loss leader and on the government teat.  Maybe I can keep it going 34 years, too!

I don’t know what is the most sad – that they exist at all, or that ‘educated’ college folk (and the gov’t) have supported them for 34 years!!

We Don’ Need No Stinkin’ Borders!

George Soros (or as Glenn Beck calls him, the ‘spooky dude’) openly admits ‘national borders are the enemy’.

If he would a libertarian, I might believe he has an open, free-market agenda.

BUT, he IS George Soros…

(From The Natural News, in part:)

(…)

‘Let’s take down all borders’

Following Orban’s statement, Soros sent an email to Bloomberg Business, in which he claimed that his foundations actually help “uphold European values,” while Orban’s actions in bolstering the Hungarian border and thus impeding a huge influx of migrants “undermine those values.”

“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

In October, Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organizations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis.” He singled out those funded by Soros, who is a strong supporter of transnational bodies like the European Union and the United Nations. Also, his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-immigration activists, and he is well-known in the U.S. and internationally for supporting “progressive” (read far-Left) causes like the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation and the Center for American Progress.

In fact, the OSF website notes: “We believe that migration and asylum policy should be grounded in economic and demographic realities, not driven by temporary political considerations or popular misconceptions.

“In Europe, many of our civil society partners are raising their voices demanding a common European approach in line with international human rights commitments.”

In a recent interview, Orban said that immigration and multiculturalism were working in tandem to change the face and traditions of Europe, it’s “Christian roots” in particular, all while creating “parallel societies” (just like mass immigration in the U.S. – and isn’t it peculiar that President Obama and Lefty Soros have the same view on mass immigration?).

So sayeth the ‘spooky dude’.

Do you think they are looking to destabilize existing governments by taxing the system until it breaks? Just as Cloward and Piven suggest?

Naw, just a coincidence…

Pay no attention to the spooky dude behind the curtain.

Or in the White House.

The UN Plans To Implement Universal Biometric Identification For All Of Humanity By 2030

(…)

Even after writing several articles about these new Global Goals, I still don’t think that most of my readers really grasp how insidious they actually are.  This new agenda truly is a template for a “New World Order”, and if you dig into the sub-points for these new Global Goals you find some very alarming things.

For example, Goal 16.9 sets the following target

By 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration.

The United Nations is already working hard toward the implementation of this goal – particularly among refugee populations.  The UN has partnered with Accenture to implement a biometric identification system that reports information “back to a central database in Geneva.”  The following is an excerpt from an article that was posted on findbiometrics.com

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is moving forward with its plans to use biometric technology to identify and track refugees, and has selected a vendor for the project.Accenture, an international technology services provider, has won out in the competitive tendering process and will oversee the implementation of the technology in a three-year contract.

The UNHCR will use Accenture’s Biometric Identity Management System (BIMS) for the endeavor. BIMS can be used to collect facial, iris, and fingerprint biometric data, and will also be used to provide many refugees with their only form of official documentation. The system will work in conjunction with Accenture’s Unique Identity Service Platform (UISP) to send this information back to a central database in Geneva, allowing UNHCR offices all over the world to effectively coordinate with the central UNHCR authority in tracking refugees.

I don’t know about you, but that sure does sound creepy to me.

To me, as well, Mr. Snyder!

He further states:

If you aren’t using cash, that means that all of your economic activity is going through the banks where it can be watched, tracked, monitored and regulated.

Every time the elite propose something for our “good,” it somehow always results in them having more power and more control.

I hope that people will wake up and see what is happening.  Major moves toward a one world system are taking place right in front of our eyes, and yet I hear very, very few people talking about any of this.

Of course, pile this upon other agenda items (like ‘universal disarmament’ of the civilian population) and we’re back to the (one-world) governmental wish list of CONTROL.

Supporters of the U.N. are fond of claiming critics are paranoid, and that the U.N. does so much good. Here is a corrupt organization, made up largely of despotic regimes and poorer nations (sometimes conflated) mostly financed by The United States, and largely ineffective in resolving world conflicts.

Remember The Korean War?  It still continues!  And most of the time, the U.S. pays for most of the aid given poorer nations.

I remember seeing signs by the side of the highway intoning ‘Get Us Out Of The U.N.!’ in the 50’s.

Maybe it’s time we left…

"Round up the usual suspects."

In Loving Memory…
