America is a at a crossroads. The globalists and the Deep State are going for broke. They are involved in an all-out effort to destablisze America. The coup is underway and we are going to get everything including the kitchen sink thrown at us.

Betrayal! The pervasive & defining crime of our age

by Chris Martenson
Friday, October 6, 2017

Let me apologize in advance for what may be an upsetting piece of writing for some of you. If you’re in a state of shock or exhaustion from recent events, perhaps you should skip this one.
I don’t offer this analysis in order to further distress anyone — but until you understand what is happening and how that influences your psychological state, you’ll remain the emotional equivalent of a rag doll shaken to-and-fro by events.
Such understanding may not bring you to a place of calm acceptance. But it will set you free.
Betrayal
The recent acts of violence in the US, especially the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, are not arising out of a vacuum. Nor are the Brexit vote, the election of Trump, or the recent Catalonian vote for secession, random unconnected acts.
These — and future similarly disruptive events sure to come — are all arising out of the fact that we all have been betrayed.
For the purposes of this article, let’s define betrayal as:
the sense of being harmed by the intentional actions of a trusted person or institution. The emotional impacts of betrayal may include shock, a sense of loss, grief, damaged self-esteem, humiliation, self-doubt, shame, and anger.
We’re betrayed every time our trust is violated, in small ways or large. An example of a small betrayal might be hiding a frivolous purchase from your partner when you’ve both agreed to stick to a shared budget. A larger betrayal would be infidelity.
But betrayals aren’t limited to relationships between individuals. They can be perpetrated across groups, even nations. Like the enormous betrayal of trust committed when the US sent its military into Iraq on the basis of falsified ‘intelligence’.
No matter the perpetrator, size and scope of a betrayal, the parties involved are only able to heal the damage done if there’s an open and honest dialog where the betrayer admits to their violations and atones openly and honestly. As discussed in much more detail in our excellent podcast with an experienced cognitive therapist, the betrayer must fully atone for their actions, face all consequences, and openly answer every question posed to them by the aggrieved.
If none of that happens, then then the animosity festers and is never ‘gotten over.’ Time does not heal that wound. It only offers a swampy breeding ground for a swarm of resentments.
In other words, if you find yourself increasingly distressed or angry (as I am) about the rampant violations of public trust in today’s world, it’s because you’re paying attention. It means you’re not crazy; you’re normal.
Betrayal Of The Public Trust
In the US, politicians deservedly enjoy a very low approval rating. Their words so rarely match their actions that it’s a too rare delight to find someone of character and conscience in DC.
Instead, we regularly see dirt bags like this:
This congressman is why people hate politics
Oct 4, 2017
Washington (CNN)
Pennsylvania Rep. Tim Murphy has had one hell of a last month.
In early September, the Republican House member admitted to an extramarital affair with a “personal friend”following the unsealing of divorce records that showed he had been involved in a relationship with Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist.
It got much, much worse on Tuesday when the Post-Gazette reported on a text message exchange between Edwards and Murphy in which she alleges he urged her to have an abortion.
Murphy’s personal foibles are not the point here. What is the point is that he is someone who has been an outspoken critic of abortion rights in his public life even while apparently being much more willing to consider it when it impacts him personally.
Murphy was a co-sponsor of legislation –passed in the House on Tuesday night– that would make it illegal for women to abort a baby after the 20-week mark.
He has a perfect 100% score with National Right to Life, having voted with the organization on five key pieces of legislation, including the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act.” As my former Washington Post colleague Aaron Blake expertly documents, Murphy was also touting his anti-abortion stance even as he was reportedly urging his mistress to seek an abortion.

A sordid tale indeed. The essence of which is a powerful politician saying one thing but doing another. He loudly espoused strong family values and a staunch right-to-life voting record — all while conducting an extra-marital affair and pressuring his mistress to get an abortion.
For the constituents who believed in this man, his deeds offer a profound betrayal. 
Tim Murphy represents the credo that the politicians in The Swamp live by: Do as we say, not as we do.
There are so many examples of prominent politicians and religious leaders saying one thing but doing nearly the exact opposite that one hardly knows how to begin listing them all. 
Heck, even “America’s Dad”, Bill Cosby, has turned out to be a serial rapist.
All these betrayals have led to a rule I now live by: The more someone proclaims a strong moral position, the more I suspect them of secretly doing the opposite.
It’s time to refuse to put up with this any longer.

If We Can’t Drain the Swamp Now, The Swamp Is Going to Drain Us Right Into The Sewer Of History

Dr. Robert Owens — October 4, 2017

In America today most people choose their favorite brand of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel based on the charisma of the news reader, and don’t waste their time tuning into other news options.
What are the criteria for their choice of a news outlet? Does the news reader look or sound authoritative?  Are they better looking?  Do they have a more pleasing voice?  Are they a Male?  Are they a female? Are they Gay? Are we not sure?  Whatever the reason, it isn’t because they say anything different.  It often sounds like they all have the same writers and story selectors.  The content is no different.
Do you want to hear the story about how the Republicrat Elite is going to stop the Trump agenda before or after you hear the story about how the Donald is not fit for the highest office in the land or after?  Do you want to learn about the latest polls that show everyone hates Trump before or after you hear how Trump the Traitor colluded with the Russians before or after you hear about the insane proposals of the racist homophobe misogynist Trump to build a wall, stop the terrorists from moving next door, or starve the poor?  Perhaps the line-up of the stories is slightly changed from one news clone to another but that’s about it.  All hate Trump all the time.
When I have a chance encounter and what passes for conversation with so many Kool-Aid drinking low information voters i.e progressive induhviduals the conversation usually goes like this:
Me: What do you think about _______ (fill in the blank)?

Progressive Induhvidual: Repeat what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, etc. has said recently stated as if this was their independently arrived at personal opinion.
Or if they’re a Conservative Induhvidual: Repeat what Fox, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, National Review, etc. has recently said.
It’s almost impossible to find anyone who has actually read any books on topics of importance such as economics, politics, sociology, or the History that ties them all together.
Several times a year I attend meetings that are filled with nothing but PhDs, professors, and university administrators.  All content experts in these very subjects as well as many others.  The results are basically the same.  The death of critical thinking has led to a deafening silence in the area of actual personal opinion, a dearth of dialogue, and a collapse of conversation.
The American people, who at the time of the Founding saw blacksmiths discussing with candle makers the pros and cons of constitutions and the meaning of liberty or carpenters debating with plumbers the need for a free economy versus the need for public works.  Just read the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers, look at the level of thought and speech and ask yourself, “How do the public debate, and newspaper articles of contemporary America match up?”  Today the public debate takes place at about a 3rd grade level compared to the graduate school of those earlier days.

What happened?  Back then there weren’t public schools.  Churches and families educated their own.  Today after generations of highly funded and severely structured public education we’ve successfully dumbed ourselves down to the lowest common denominator.
Look at the late great Bernie Sanders revolt which was short circuited and contained by the ballot fixing elite in the Democrat Party.   Or look at the Trump Revolution which overwhelmed the elite in the Republican Party.   Either way it’s obvious that we tax paying entities who inhabit flyover country whether of the right or left have had enough of the bi-coastal elite that’s driving us over the cliff into the third world.  Since their favorite empty pantsuit blew the election and she can’t carry the water for the donor class all the way to the bank obviously the elite controlled media has dropped their camouflage of objectivity and is all in to make sure Trump is destroyed.
At least there was one pseudo surprise in the Hollywood scripted replay of Primary Colors the Distaff Edition.   After all of the frothing at the mouth Bernie supporters did.   After his highly motivated supporters were so brave they booed or turned their backs at the Democrat Party Spectacle in Philadelphia on their anointed queen.   Low and behold their fearless leader fell into line and surprise, surprise, surprise supported the mistress of manipulation.   Then just as evidence surfaced that yes, the entire primary exercise was rigged from the beginning the mind-numb robots of the left who chanted and cheered for Bernie stood in line to cast their rationally considered and highly principled vote for the very person who engineered the fix, took her money and marching orders from the crony capitalists, and is arguably the most corrupt person to ever run for the presidency.  After the election, Bernie, the man of the people bought his third house and settled in a well-feathered bed until next time he’s needed to attack his fellow millionaires and billionaires.
Who could have seen this coming except a blind man in a dark room with no media access?
The pre-programmed electorate combined with the usual fraud, imported voters and all the dead people who never leave the voting rolls of the corrupt Democrat City fiefdoms, marched in lockstep to the polls to hand America lock-stock-and-barrel to the Clinton Crime Family.

However, the November Miracle happened and instead of the Sleazy Don following the totally corrupt Donna back into the White House, the Donald won.
Enough people swallowed the red pill and were willing to at least take a shot at shaking things up before we’re swept away by the unregulated immigration invasion and state-sponsored outsourcing that low and behold we didn’t end up with another perpetually re-elected hack.
An old saying goes, “There are only two things that are certain in this life, death and taxes.”  We’ve all been programmed to accept this as an inevitable truism.  Death to be sure is natural and inevitable.  If you were born you’ll die.  Taxes, however, aren’t a natural thing.  They’re in actuality the forced expropriation of funds from the productive taken through the use of the state’s monopoly on the use of coercive force.  And so, though they aren’t natural and they aren’t inevitable like death or gravity they may in realistic terms given the overwhelming preponderance of government power be unavoidable.
Our country refused to follow the dictates of the elite controlled media. America refused to become the turf of the Sleazy Donna from Chappaqua whose word parsing motto should be the Bart Simpson anthem, “I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me do it! You can’t prove anything.”  We chose not to let the White House once again become Bill’s love nest.   We refused to let the George Soros puppet in heels moves into the Oval Office with her Rolodex of contributors both foreign and domestic.
So what do we have now? The Cartel and the politicians that follow them around like a children’s pull toy on a string are screeching day and night the Russians!   The Russians! They have Comey’s BFF installed as the Special Counsel because of Comey’s leaks.   The stage is set for a sequel to the Progressives favorite thriller, “The Witch Hunt of Watergate.”

What’s a freedom loving constitutionalist to do?   How about every time the Progressives issue a subpoena for one of the President’s followers we issue one for a Debbie Wasserman Schultz, or her Pakistani IT money launderer, or Bill Clinton, or Loretta Lynch, or any of the shady characters who actually tried to fix the election.   How about a Special Counsel to investigate all the scandals of the Obummer nightmare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Lois Lerner and the IRS, or the serial unmasking of American citizens for political purposes?
Why should we just roll over and take it?   Why not take it and roll on instead? We won, let’s act like it!
If we don’t stand up after the Miracle in November and demand that the swamp is drained when will it happen?   When Chelsea gets elected? If we can’t drain the swamp now the swamp is going to drain us right into the sewer of history.

Deep State Globalists Want To Destroy The US Constitution – Catherine Austin Fitts

By Greg Hunter

October 1, 2017
Investment advisor and former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts says you can add $21 trillion of missing federal money on top of the $20 trillion U.S. deficit. It’s all in a new explosive report on Solari.com. Fitts explains, “This is $65,000 for every man, woman and child resident in America. In addition, it is now more than the outstanding official debt on the U.S. balance sheet. . . . We know that the U.S. government has been run like a criminal enterprise from a financial standpoint.”
The new report was put together by Dr. Mark Skidmore at Michigan State University, and it is a detailed year-by-year study of DOD and HUD budgets between 1998 and 2015. The missing money is called “undocumentable adjustments,” but that may just be a polite name for theft, fraud and crime against “We the People.” Fitts contends, “Here’s the critical issue because technology is leading us through tremendous change, and the people who get their hands on this technology and are able to subsidize the cost of capital are the ones that are going to win. They have done that by basically hijacking the federal credit and using it to help centralize power under them. So, we have to reverse that, and the Constitution is the tool to hold them accountable. All their arguments just fall down when you realize they have just stolen an enormous amount of money from the federal government outside the law. . . . The U.S. Federal government doesn’t have information sovereignty, and it doesn’t have financial sovereignty. So, we have to return it to that, and we have to keep that mechanism open long enough to get this money back.”
Fitts contends the Deep State swamp creatures do not want to give the money back and want to tear up the U.S. Constitution in order to keep all those trillions of stolen dollars. Fitts explains, “You want to preserve the Constitution because you want to have individual sovereignty, and you want your taxes to only go into things that have financial and national sovereignty. So, that has to be restored. The reason they want to tear up the Constitution is they don’t want to give the money back. That’s a legal mechanism that requires us and gives us the power to reverse this. . . . They say we have $20 trillion in debt, and there is no money. It’s a very different policy discussion if I can say, wait a minute, there’s $20 trillion in debt, but you stole $21 trillion . . . and we’re putting that back on the table for purposes of this policy discussion.”
In other words, “We the People” could pay off the entire federal deficit with the money that was stolen and still have $1 trillion left over.
Fitts also says, “Here’s the magic trick. You don’t need everybody to change this. It only takes 5% to 10% of the population to completely turn this around. It doesn’t take everybody, and that is one of the things that has got them so scared. . . . We don’t need to implode the federal government. We need to take it back, clean it up and get it to run according to the law.”
