I’ve decided to move my political comments and predictions to their own “room”— this one! We’ll organize this “room” later — for now, I’ll just put the latest first, at the top. So here are my latest political opinions.
March 28, 2020:
I forecast, last column, that: “In-between (July to December 2020) the political squabbling in the U.S. will continue, even increase.” Well, it’s only late March, and it’s happening already. Astoundingly, in the face of the corona pandemic, the Democrats have refused to authorize medical spending to fight this crisis unless the Republicans also pass about 20 other items such as solar power, environment regulations, Nancy’s Depends budget, social security laws, even funding for a Washington, D.C. performing arts centre, etc. etc. In other words, everything the Dems have wanted for the last 2 to 3 years, they have “attached” to funding for corona victims, and refuse the funding unless their other favourite, partisan programs are also approved.
(PS: after I wrote this, on March 27 the “house” finally passed a coronavirus bill. )
February 27, 2020:
AT LAST the always slow-to-react Republicans are criticizing Amy Berman Jackson, the biased, crooked judge who has refused justice in her kangaroo courtroom to a long line of Republican defenders. She is the perfect compliment to the crooked prosecutors who use her.
Remember years ago when I disputed Justice Roberts’ claim that all judges were unaffected by politics? Amy Jackson has presided over many of the Mueller related prosecutions. Manafort, sentenced to solitary confinement. Roger Stoned, denied, with the crooked hand of the law and its police, his right to tell his side of the story. These are 2 of Berman’s accomplishments. (Tho’ this one is double-edged; Roger Stone’s media did seem to threaten the judge. But the judge and her henchmen struck the first outrageous blow: they arrested an old man (Stone) in the middle of the night, with swat teams no less, as if he were a famous, dangerous terrorist. This came before Roger’s 1st amendment fight with Jackson, so could be forgiven as a return blow. But there is no forgiveness in the dark hearts of the Democrats.)
About the police: watching their actions in democratic strong holds Berkeley and Portland, I felt the forces were well-organized, from the top down, with each branch rooting out, providing support, to lower levels. On more Republican turf, a different cohesion takes place: the loyalties are more lateral than in the up-and-down structured of the democrats. There’s a “brotherhood” of mutual support. The advantage of this system is the disadvantage of the hierarchical system, in which one manager emotionally ”supports” (can connect with in a positive, productive way) from 5 to 50 workers.(*) This is both efficient, and weak, in the sense of “every link in the chain” — the link/manager will be very stretched.
*(From experience, I know the amount is very limited. If you had a factory situation, with a very simple task, one manager might oversee 50 workers, but that’s stretching it. For complex tasks, esp. mobile ones, 5 is comfortable. I handled/employed — was it 13 managers? But the tasks of their workers was very simple: deliver newspapers.
There is now evidence that these prosecutors, the Mueller prosecutors, committed multiple crimes, hiding evidence, perjury, prosecuting people whom they already knew were innocent…(from John Solomon on the Hannity Show, Fox).
February 13, 2020:
Well, Elizabeth Warren’s cooked. She did as I predicted in the early stages, growing and taking supporters from Bernie. But then she lied. After earlier lies, it was just too much. It makes her look phoney, more brass than substance. I guess she just couldn’t help it. Dumb. I wonder if she realizes?
Could a Pete Klobuchar, or an Amy Buttigieg ticket be in the offing?
What? After spending 6 months trying to destroy Trump, dirty tricks and all, Nancy Pelosi tried, before the whole world, at the start of his State of the Union speech, to shake Trump’s hand. He ignored her. In revenge, she tore up her copy of the speech. What? Did she expect a warm hug and whispers of forgiveness? Never kiss a snake.
Gotta admit, Bernie Sanders is surprising me. I opined a few months ago that Warren would cannibalize Sanders’ base, and that happened at first. But then she began lying again, and support slipped. I think she’s through — the streak of falseness in her is obvious to the public. As I said, Pete Buttigieg is doing pretty well. I suspect Warren’s followers will go to Bernie, and Joe Biden’s followers will go to Pete. (And as I wrote then, “Poor Joe Biden, not a chance.”)
February 5, 2020:
Oh man, what a lot of clap trap — the Dem’s impeachment “presentation” in the Senate. I thought Trump was at least partially guilty, until I heard the Democrats scapegoating him. The entire impeachment process is, this time, scapegoating without evidence, bombastic patriotic speeches filled with charges. It reminded me of the saying, “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”
January 16, 2020:
Warren claims Sanders told her, months ago, that “a woman can’t become President” or some such. It’s Warren’s way of attacking Bernie’s “woke-ism” — of exposing his chauvanism. Who are you going to believe? Bernie Sanders, known for his straightforward truthfulness, or Elizabeth Warren, who cannot seem to stop lying. This is the kind of “destiny” I wrote about below. She will never be President.
The assassination of the 2021-25 President: if it occurs, might be followed by a mass of deaths, esp. if it happens in the first year. And perhaps a ”revolution” that might replace the hierarchy, or severely alter it. From a long view, the Dem’s “do anything” zealous hatred of Trump, and the Republican’s deep loyalty to him (now — he has proved himself to them, and become their leader on levels beyond democracy) — this hardening/deepening of positions is a step toward crisis, and from this, the first definite step into the new system. (You could say that the Dem’s unresolvable anger created/deepened the Repub’s loyalty to Trump. Nothing in the Dem’s actions is logical, and their major anti-Trump attacks — Mueller, Kavanaugh, Impeachment — every major attack has failed, and lowered the public’s trust in the Dems, and in their media (most major media). Yet thy keep doing it, fuelled by emotions so stark and fearful that logic doesn’t abide. Heck, in the last of the three, Impeachment, the Dems KNEW they were going to fail; that what they had would be thrown out by the Senate. Yet they marched on anyway. I think that’s destiny. And I think, deep, down, the Dems knew they would fail, so they undertook a series of stunts that they must have known would look either crooked or dumb, and (not or) worse, in the public’s eye, unfair. This started with Schiff’s reading of his fake Trump-Zelensky call transcript, which, had it been true, would have convicted Trump in both parties’ eyes. I know why Schiff performed his reading of the fictionalized transcript, the emotions and conviction behind it, but it was a lie, a falsehood — by engaging in it, Schiff was admitting that the actual transcript that Impeachment was based on was too weak to stand on its own, and so the guilt must be read into it by his theatrical innuendos and his additions to the text. It nailed Schiff to the wall as a liar. (Among his other attributes.)
I said Schiff’s reading of the false transcript was the start of public disfavour toward the Dem’s third coup attempt. But the falsehoods start much earlier. The whistleblower concept, for which a CIA member was enlisted, was obviously cooked up in a Schiff staff committee — it’s too dumb yet too timid to be one man’s brave attempt to win the war. True committee stuff: and here the bureaucracy and the PC’ers failed.
Like the two major fishing expeditions before it (Mueller, Kavanaugh) the Impeachment inquiry was started on manufactured evidence and perjury.
This subconscious acceptance of destiny, or guilt, or hopelessness in the face of fate: perhaps this is why the Dems didn’t have the energy (or conviction) to subpoena witnesses through the courts. Perhaps the guilty mind is psychic, knows a period of punishment or adversity is coming, and shrugs and commits a (let’s hope minor) sin, to deserve the “reward” or effect: the punishment. If one knows (psychically, subconsciously) one is going to be punished, then committing the crime or sin early is a logical step: it reduces the waiting time, a time poisoned with anxiety. A “get it over with” attitude.
To me, the Dem’s actions speak of destiny. Shakespeare said (Lear?) “When the gods want to destroy a man, first they drive him mad.” We could say, “When Destiny wants mankind to take a major turn, first it whips it into a fury, so it can act at extremes, without questioning itself.”
For 3 years, the Dems have been possessed by destiny. But they need to remember that Destiny plays no favourites. She works to a greater design.
Possibly a fracturing of political parties in the U.S., first into three, then, perhaps, into many. This is part of the long-term development of another system. This might cause a decline in American power for the Millennium; but for 200 years, the U.S. will dominate.
December 25, 2019:
Saw Nancy Pelosi’s press conference where she said, “I’m a Catholic. I don’t hate Trump. I pray for him every night.” She should have said: “I don’t hate Trump. I’m a Catholic, I just need a crucifixion.”
Why can’t the Republicans charge Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi with attempting to overthrow the president? What they did was not just to begin an impeachment process; they actually committed a crime in doing so – the crime of perjury (Schiff) illegal leaking and doxing of republican phone numbers (Schiff) and fraud — claiming a whistleblower, when actually they manufactured the entire “whistle” (Schiff). Pelosi is a culpable accomplice or director, as she must have known and approved of Schiff’s actions.
December 20, 2019:
If Pelosi withholds the articles of impeachment from the Senate indefinitely, the Senate should hold a trial without the articles, and simply declare Trump innocent and exonerated of all charges. Then it will be extremely difficult for even a new, Democratic-majority Senate (should such arise from an election) to “revive” Pelosi’s charges. (More on Pelosi’s motives below, under “December 19.”)
December 19, 2019:
Evidently one of the Democrats’ lawyers has advised the party to delay sending the impeachment accusation (for that’s all it is, a formal accusation) to the Senate for a trial. I suspect the plan would be to hold the impeachment stain over Trump’s re-election campaign as long as possible. (For they know the Senate would declare it invalid.) Perhaps they even plan to hold it as an existing smear until after the November election, hoping that the Dems might win the majority in the Senate, and then they would get an easy, partisan victory in a 2020 Senate trial and an automatic impeachment of Trump, despite his basic innocence.
The danger here is that the Durham investigation might indict a slew of Democrats and their henchmen, the crooked FBI, the lying CIA, and all the rats hiding in the tunnels of the whole American (actually, anti-American) spook industry, BEFORE the election.
Pretty rich that the Dems, immediately after impeaching Trump during a kangaroo court, demanded that the Senate hold a “fair trial” and admit all their Dem witnesses, after they denied the Republicans the right not only to bring their own witnesses, but even the right to question the Dem’s witnesses. Now, though, they’re demanding “fairness!” Schumer, Pelosi. Black mold.
Just saw parts of the Dec. 19 Democratic debate. Andrew Yang looks like the most intelligent, truthful, nicest and most humorous of the candidates. When the debate ended, while the other candidates milled around on the stage, schmoozing with each other like members of a private club, Yang was kneeling at the edge of the stage, talking and shaking hands with audience members. I wrote awhile ago that he would be one of the best candidates, but not President due to his ethnicity. (He’s oriental, I think Chinese.) Prejudice will likely hold him back. But he’s more attractive than any of the others.
CNN’s latest ploy: whenever the crowds at Trump’s rallies cheer and shout and laugh at his jokes, they say “listen to the crowds groan in disapproval.” Pimps beat up women and sell their bodies; CNN beats up the truth, and sells its bruised soul.
The funny thing about politics, esp. in the U.S., is that the pols attack each other and call their opponents every kind of rat, then say, “I hope they will co-operate with us to get this and that done.” How can you beat someone over over the head, then say, “be my friend?” Mitch McConnell calls it “partisan rage.”
Can’t members of Congress be impeached? If so, why don’t they impeach Adam Schiff for perjury? Why not Schumer and Nadler for hypocrisy? Why not Maxine Waters for fomenting violence against the President? Why not Nancy Pelosi for alligator tears and phoney religiosity? Oh, I get it — they’re the ones in charge of impeachment!
Our society rewards psychopaths, which is why Comey rose to the top of the FBI.
January 6, 2019, I wrote: “Nancy Pelosi faces one of the toughest stretches of her political career, 2019/20, especially around Nov./19 to Jan./20.” I suspect her latest melt-downs on tv “prove” my point.
A pile-up of planets in Capricorn next year will bring all this impeachment stuff, and hierarchy-transforming tensions around the world, to a climax. Actually, the deep, structural tensions begin to subside, just as Jupiter “blows them up” into dramatic levels. More noise and fury, but slightly less essential restructuring. (Though it still goes on in the U.S. until 2025.) This is the restructuring. The “civil war” peaks in 2022/23, so we ain’t seen nothing yet.
I’ve written here several times that I suspected the FISA judges were just as biased and criminal as the FBI. Now it’s revealed that these judges were informed in writing over 18 months ago that the FBI submissions were false and doctored — not by some nut case, but by one of the senior and most respected Congressman. (Devan Nunes.) These judges weren’t fooled by the FBI, they were complicit in a criminal act so vile that it will tarnish faith in the law for decades. (Actually, for centuries, as the law and its lackeys will bend toward crooked for about 211 more years.). They should be indicted and jailed.
BTW, I don’t mean to criticize only American “justice” mongers. The R.C.M.P. are just as bad. They do nothing about online kiddie porn, ignore all international internet-related crimes except murder (they told me this) and just shrug about the criminal telephone scams that fool old people into giving up their c.c. data. I receive 4 to 6 of these scam calls every week. Marriott Hotels and West Jet seem to be involved in a lot of these fraudulent crimes. Maybe the scammers just use their names.
It was recently revealed that almost one half of all Canadians— 15,000,000 people — had their medical (and personal addresses, etc.) stolen. The RCMP won’t do anything about it — just watch. This crime will “disappear,” like so many others under the Mounties’ noses.
In a sense, we are surrounded by crime. This “condition” will last until 2229 AD. This isn’t the police I faced as a kid, when the cops were there to bully, not protect you. I grew up in a poor neighbourhood, and this was just accepted as everyday stuff. Part of our play, in fact, was to evade them. Police have since, I suspect, time immemorial, considered poverty a crime. When I watched the ghetto-dwellers of NY throwing buckets of water on the police, part of me was shocked (that the cops didn’t fight back) but part of me smiled, glad to see it.
This new justice zeitgeist, with us since 1983, now means that “justice crimes” (crimes by lawmakers) have flowed into and begin to colour the entire citizenry, or at least the broad middle class. This is another part of the police state I forecast in the 1990’s. It will continue and perhaps deepen, for 210 more years — to 2229.
I remember when Supreme Court Justice Roberts — one of the top 9 judges in the entire U.S.A. — claimed judges were “never political.” It was a blatant and obvious lie. (Judges in the U.S. are sometimes elected, sometimes examined/approved by politicians. How is this not political?) Did that elevated fool expect anyone to believe him? Why should we trust judges who lie?
When I predicted in the late 1980’s that universities would become corrupt for two centuries, I also included lawyers because the law is, in astrology, the same as universities. But I think I forgot to include judges. They will fall — have already fallen— into the same corrupt stew. Already the hems of their black robes are kissed by the slimy creatures that crawl along the halls of “justice.” I saw this in Toronto, where the family court judges (and the lawyers who run them) are probably all man-haters. When I was named as a Respondent in my marriage break-up, I was notified that all new Respondents MUST attend a “familiarization” session. About 200 men were there. This session was conducted by a female lawyer. She told us that male respondents were guilty, and had better get their affairs in order. I was amazed at the blatant stating of this prejudice. When I put up my hand to say that surely some male respondents were innocent, she gave me a curt “No.” (In Toronto, when I examined the court buildings’ docks, only 1 of 26 family court judges was a man.) My impressions have been supported by a Toronto statistical study which claimed that in over 98 % of cases the judges ruled against the man. (The author of that study claims he was subsequently beaten by police. True? False? But if true, I wonder who ordered the beating?)
Yet these judges live on, to slice men up, and to coo over the women who smile at them. The judge in charge of my divorce case, even though my ex-wife earned 20 % more annually than I did, and stole over $ 189,000 from our joint account the day we separated, and, according to Ontario’s laws, owed me $ 54,000 (not counting her theft) and perjured herself repeatedly — despite all this, the judge, a fat woman of about 300-350 pounds (I don’t exaggerate) who sat in her chair behind her big desk, sucking on candies, instructed me to give my ex-wife between 50,000 and 100,000 immediately (she recommended $ 75,000) or she would drive me into poverty with the costs of a trial — a trial, she implied, that I would lose, even though legally I should win.
The law is fine. But lawyers and judges are thieves and scum.
You might conclude from this that I resent women. (Or worse!) I don’t. I think 70 % of heterosexual women are good-hearted, 20 % are “open to taking advantage,” 5 % are toxic, and 5 % are actively evil, shining recruits for family courts. I’m sure the same partitions occur in men.
If we pull back and take a longer view, all this imbedded malfeasance is necessary, part of a large gear that is turning one or more wheels of history. In the near term, it has created the present division in U.S. politics, which itself is only a step in a large, 200-year destruction of communism and democracy, to make way for a third system. We can see some early hints of this change in China, where communism has leaned over into capitalism.
I get a kick out of the current fashion of attacking China for human rights abuses — e.g., the million Muslims in detention camps, or the Hong Kong riots. Yes, I’m sure such outrages occur. But it took weeks, months, for the police to use systematic violence against them. When I was in China two years ago, the people seemed calm, interested, content. There were police everywhere, in different coloured uniforms — some pink, some mauve, some blue, some grey — I guess to define their dept. or role. But they generally seemed gentle, mild and non-intrusive. Not like North American cops with their swagger and arrogance, and their speedy readiness to use their power to intimidate and bully the lower class, Blacks and Hispanics. (In Canada, the RCMP take young Indians off the reservation in winter, drive them miles away, and push them out of the car in 20 below weather, so they freeze to death. This is how the RCMP play, I guess. I watched once as the RCMP waited outside a community hall (a Legion, I think, i.e., a beer hall) in Merritt, B.C. until it closed, then arrested the Indians as they poured out.)
December 13, 2019:
Right after Trump was elected, I wrote here that he would be one of the most popular Presidents in history. Then, as almost every media outlet attacked him, my heart sank, and I thought, “Well, there’s one of my misses.” But now, looking at his rallies, I think my prediction was right.
The I.G. Report on the FBI’s shenanigans: IG Horowitz called the 17 FISA deceptions (lies told to the judge by the FBI) “mistakes.” 17 material “mistakes” in the FBI’s presentation to a federal judge, and not one of them was intentional? One mistake was neglecting to mention that their main “incriminating” document against Trump was paid for by Hillary Clinton. That was a mistake?
Have you noticed that since Trump was elected, the ACLU has died? Probably had a 2017 meeting with Adam Schiff, who convinced them to remain silent until he could railroad Trump. The ACLU, supposedly a civil liberties champion, is really a Democratic lapdog.
I suspect Adam Schiff will face lawsuits for many years.
Too bad Octavio-Cortez lies (about food stamps). Not?ice how she’s sort of disappeared? Few media fawnings anymore? I warned about her actions leading to her obscurity a few months ago.
Try this: Imagine you have been in the Siberian forest for 3 years, without any news from the outside world. Then you fly in to civilization and see the television news, and you see Nancy Pelosi and Trump and all their lieutenants braying away, one calling the other evil, despicable, criminal, and the other calling the first liars, cheaters and coup plotters: what would you think? It must be like looking at a strange land.
The eleven FISA judges need to go back to kindergarten to learn about asking questions, and being a bit sceptical. Toward the crooked FBI, these judges were like the three monkeys: see no lies, hear no lies, and speak no questions. These judges, as I wrote months ago, were crooked, as crooked as the FBI itself. Why is no one questioning the judges?
Well, told you U.S. presidential hopeful Kamala Harris wouldn’t make it (April 2019). She’s now ended her campaign.
Will someone please tell Alexandria Octavio-Cortez that Harbour Air of Vancouver (Canada) now operates an electric passenger plane?
The trouble with U.S. politics now is that it has become so complicated, so labyrinthine and venal, that if you even make one statement, a true statement, you will have to supply 1,000 words to justify it. It’s sad — the truth is not worth the labour to uphold it.
Some readers (perhaps now long gone) have castigated me for my horrible, shocking non-support for Hillary Clinton, the “saint” — though that veneer has tarnished steadily since 2016, mostly from the moist breath of complaint. Now the media reports that Hillary accompanied her billy goat husband to visit notorious pedophile Epstein’s home. (Bill travelled in Epstein’s “pedophile express” — which took people to Epstein’s secret island of child sexual abuse — 27 times. 27.)
And get this — they took their daughter on at least one occasion. I have long felt a gut-deep repulsion toward Hillary, wasn’t sure why. I was abused sexually by my mother’s step-father. So were my brother and two sisters. Basically, she offered us as a sacrifice. We didn’t even live there — she brought us there.
I think I recognized a similar evil in H.C. Did she and Bill lock Chelsea up in her room on the pedophile plantation, so she would not be sullied, or her innocence shocked by what she saw? Then why take her? Or did they invite Chelsea to enjoy one of the children who were being raped and ruined for life? This is the same H.C. who, as a young lawyer, laughed when she got a rapist off, and showed the 12-year old female victim that truth is nothing; power and manipulation are the only values society genuflects to.
Abuse of children is, as someone said, tantamount to murder, because you have killed a child’s entire life, and left their carcass alive, to experience the results: alienation, lack of trust, unexplained fears, lack of confidence, poor school performance, employment problems, sometimes an inability to live as a spouse or mate, probable poverty, quick or uncontrolled anger, drugs, alcohol and ultimately crime…. these are a few of the gifts abuse shoves into the gunny sack of society — where most of these children will live. The gunny sack, a sort of not-social (for no one can be trusted) environment. Even these murdered children have natural hopes and deep joys like smelling lilacs on a spring night, running home after talking and kissing, the night friendly and fragrant. These are just common nature; but beyond such visions and joys of ebullient nature, what exists? A bottomless well of guilt, the blackness of self-blame. For Hillary (and triple-triple for Bill) — surely if there is a hell, she’s headed for it.
December 1, 2019:
Fox News shouldn’t be so happily confident that Joe Biden will crash in flames due to his verbal gaffes. They forget that Trump was elected despite his glaring faults. Biden’s gaffes are the same — perhaps they make him more lovable, as they make him more human.
(Some months ago I opined that Warren and (perhaps, depending) Buttigieg would lead the field of Dem presidential hopefuls, and that “poor Biden” had “not a chance.” Well, Warren’s tendency to fib bothered me back then, and I think she will run thin here forward. Biden looks durable, and he’s very likeable to many people. Maybe I was wrong. Buttigieg has the stuff to stands up to Trump. Biden doesn’t, but he’s good at faking it. But no predictions yet.
November 24, 2019:
Here is Schiff’s impeachment dilemma: how does a liar get at the truth?
Bloomberg and Patrick, the two new entrants in the Democratic primary (both billionaires) will go nowhere. One thing you don’t want to start during Mercury retrograde, is a political campaign. (On the other hand, the U.S.A. birth chart holds a Mercury retrograde.) (Tom Steyer, another billionaire, will fail. And should — he’s “dirty.”)
Give me a break on all the criticism of Trump’s anti-Yovanovitch tweet, calling it witness intimidation. Yovanovitch was only aware of it when Dem Adam Schiff read it aloud to her, to ensure she “got it.” She would not have seen the tweet until later, probably after her entire deposition.
The witness intimidation was done by Adam Schiff. I have never seen such bold liars as the Dems. It reveals conviction, belief. But I fear there’s a “wily coyote” end in store, a worse one than marked by the Mueller probe.
November 12, 2019:
CNN’s like a toxic spouse during divorce proceedings, filled with hate, dressed in decorum.
The Guardian newspaper of England is one of the propaganda rags; truth is their victim.
You know what Trump did? He shattered the old “uniforms” of politics. This left politicians with an identity crisis. Being an old-style politician now threatens obscurity. Republicans (ex-never-Trumpers) are quite comfortable with this, like chicks under mother hen’s wing They feel, now, finally, that they can draw power and protection from their odd, electric leader. But the Dems see this not only with panic, but with a deep emotional reaction that, evolving into a guise of logic and intellect, brings the extreme platforms of the Dems.
I suspect Adam Schiff will self-destruct…. that he’ll be caught in his own machine. I also suspect Nancy Pelosi foresaw this danger, and genuflected as Adam passed the boundaries of good sense, leaving him to his fate. You could see Trump as a Shakespearian protagonist. Adam Schiff rises to the same drama, but as a villain. The whole thing, the past 3 years, would make a tragedy, or a “palace intrigue” story. So many characters!
November 3, 2019
Think of it this way:
- One, the Dems created a false document to trigger the Mueller probe of Trump: found nothing.
- Two, the Dems created a false witness (Christine Ford) to try to derail Trump’s court nominee, Kavanaugh: found nothing.
- Three, the Dems create a false whistleblower (whose complaint has been proven to be false hearsay — i.e., nothing more than gossip) to trigger an “impeachment enquiry.” So far, after weeks of secret hearings run by Schiff: no result.
Numbers One and Two have been proven false. People connected to #1 are now under criminal investigation. Three people connected to #2 have already been sentenced to jail. The central figure of #3 (Schiff) has now been hit with an ethics complaint. (I think Schiff [Mr. “Railroad” — known by some as “Mr. Kangaroo”] who is now holding court over the “whistleblower” attempt to impeach Trump, is ultimately headed for jail.)
Can you find any difference in what started all three Dems attack campaigns? Or in their results? Or in their motives? I can’t.
Can you count how many times, for example, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, NBC, CBS have run the news that the Kavanaugh conspirators are in jail? (One of them for repeated break-ins of a congresswoman’s office to steal computer files.)
Psychologically, I believe the Dems are projecting their own guilt onto Trump and the Republicans. This is why they have to create false premises to attack him, and why they are so frustrated in every effort — because they are chasing the ghost of their own guilty projections. Trump is like smoke that keeps disappearing on them.
Possibility: the “whistleblower” doesn’t exist.
The problem with Trump’s ”supporters” such as Lindsey Graham saying that Trump should have all the legal rights and procedural rights that Nixon and Clinton had, is that it equates this impeachment effort by the Dems with those much more serious, criminally-laden, bipartisan impeachments. This implies that Trump must fight, that the accusations against him are as dire and sombre as those against Nixon and Bill. That’s untrue.
The Dem’s current impeachment effort is partisan, nasty, a barrel of dirty tricks, obviously motivated by envy and resentment — and, perhaps, fear of the criminal charges coming against some in their ranks. The Republicans should give it the breathing room (or the laugh track) it deserves: almost nil.
This impeachment “inquiry” was begun the same way the Russian Mueller thing was begun: with a manufactured handful of false evidence. Nadler quit — he didn’t have the stomach for it, which speaks well of him, for Trump remains his enemy. (Much of the rest contains my speculation, is not factual — yet.) Schiff copied the modus operandi of the Russia probe: he and his staff manufactured a whistleblower complaint, not as a focus of investigation, but as a precipitant of investigation.
In other words, Schiff and staff manufactured a phoney whistleblower complaint for the sole purpose of using it to launch a fishing expedition to try to find an impeachable offence. This is not only the dirtiest, scummiest political stunt I’ve ever seen (absent McCarthy’s shenanigans) — it would be illegal if carried on outside the toilet they call the House. First illegality: a witness in the inquiry is RUNNING the inquiry: shifty adam schiff. (His name doesn’t deserve capitalization.) That’s like saying to someone in the witness box at a murder trial: “Hey, get up and take the judge’s seat. We want you to be the judge now.” (Or the prosecutor, or an accuser.)
THINK TWICE: Elijah Cummings, the U.S. Congressman who just died — a state funeral, glowing testimonies from pols on both sides… but Cummings was a dirty player. His impoverished district received billions — up to 17 billion a year in federal funds in 2018; 15 billion in 2017 — but how many rats died, how many crumbling slum buildings were razed and rebuilt, how many Blacks (his own race) were lifted out of poverty? Meanwhile, his wife was raking in money connected to his office’s back door. Cummings colluded with the IRS to destroy a mildly affluent, middle-class white woman and her husband. (They ran a perfectly legitimate charity.) Because they were white? Or because they were Republican? Google “Cummings scandals,” or watch the You Tube appearance of these victims in Cumming’s “committee.”
To now praise him seems mildly hypocritical. When we praise evil, who and what and where are we?
For the Democrats (Harris, Butts, Warren, Biden) to characterize Trump’s “lynching” statement as “despicable,” “disgusting” and “racist,” is pretty rich. Biden himself used the very same term in the past — as did Kerry and ten other prominent Dem pols. Even Clarence Thomas, supreme court judge, called his confirmation process a lynching. Hmmm.
I wrote here, back in July 28, that Pete Buttigieg was a one of the best candidates for the presidential election, but that he was the victim of a “karmic trough.” I wrote that he might prevail overall, by May 2020. However, he has started rising smartly in the polls, so I revisited his birth chart: he’s a 29-degree Capricorn, so the maximum intensity of his negative karma was late 2018, and though this “trough” lasts until May/20, he seems to be feeling it less and less — escaping its downward pressure more swiftly than I anticipated. (Maybe he took my advice to quit falsely attacking others.) If Butts prevails — he’s much less goofy/radical than front-runner Warren (gee, I predicted that, too! — see Oct. 13/19 blog) — if he prevails, He might beat Trump, as I wrote last July. (Not a prediction.) He’s the Democratic replacement to Joe Biden, though the Dems don’t seem to recognize this yet.
Buttigieg has a Moon in Sagittarius at 3 degrees. This will be “hit” by the south lunar node about (I’m guessing, as I’m in Montreal without an ephemeris) October/November 2021 — way too late to hand him an electoral defeat. (At this time he might suffer an emotional loss, act negatively, arousing critics, or his “wife” might somehow harm his progress or create a scandal.)
I think it’s possible that there never has been a whistleblower in the U.S. Impeachment drive against Trump. That the whole thing is as phoney, manufactured and mean-spirited as the Mueller fiasco. A second organized attempt at a coup to unseat the President. Consider:
We know that Adam Schiff, the leader of the Democrat’s impeachment inquiry, is a stone-cold liar. We know that for two years he publicly stated he had proof that Trump colluded with the Russians, when he, we now know, did not. We know he lied about the whistleblower upon whom this impeachment is based. We know that he and his staff met with the supposed “whistleblower” (WB) weeks before the WB complaint was “announced.” We know that scummy Schiff tried to kept this secret. We know the WB has no first-hand knowledge. We know the WB was a Joe Biden (Democrat running for President) employee. We know that the complaint was not written by the WB, but by Democratic lawyers — perhaps lawyers on Schiff’s staff? We know that Schiff and the Dems don’t want the Republicans pr Trump — whom the WB accuses — to be able to closely examine the “testimony” the Dems are creating.
Consider that the same Dems:
1) created, promoted and lashed Trump with a phoney Russia collusion and a Special Prosecutor for two years;
2) publicly vowed, since the day he was elected, that they would impeach Trump;
3) enlisted foreign governments to investigate him, and when that didn’t work, enlisted these foreigners to produce phoney claims against him;
4) as soon as the Russia hoax was disproved, the Dems began their second push — or should I say putsch? — to overthrow/impeach their President.
I suspect Adam Schiff and his staff created and wrote the WB complaint, then found a willing Democrat functionary/slave to “be” the WB.
Remember when, in late 2016 I wrote that the believers in democracy might act undemocratically to destroy a democratically elected president, who they believe is not democratic.
I am amazed by two things: how blatantly, darkly and demonically — and foolishly — the Dems are acting, and how timid the Republicans are in fighting back.
I know this sounds really “out there,” but I think the Republicans should begin subpoenaing many Democratic members of Congress. And suing many of them, including Schiff. I also think they should ALL start calling Pelosi “Swamp Monster,” and Schiff her “pond scum.” In other words, fight back with the same calumny the principle-less Dems use.
There’s a saying — was it Mark Twain, or an earlier cleric? — that a lie travels twice around the world before the truth gets its pants on. The problem is: where are Trump’s pants?
What I want to know is, why don’t these people who appear before scummy Adam Schiff’s impeachment circus simply say, “I refuse to answer questions from a liar?” (which Schiff has proven to be, repeatedly).* Their only excuse is cowardice, and if the Republicans are such cowards, they deserve to fall, not lead.
* (This is one of the flaws of most western legal systems: prosecutors and police and lawyers — that is, all court officers except the judge — are permitted to lie: police to suspects, FBI and prosecutors always [or why aren’t Andrew Weissmann, Comey and Mueller, all of whom made careers of falsehood and corruption, in jail?] and lawyers, who are not technically supposed to lie, but they do, and the court turns a blind eye.)
Our legal system is admirable, but our justice system is a myth, voiced by the rich, to rule a population who can’t hear the silent language of power. Now, I am biased here. I also think much of the lower levels of justice do treat people with a rough equality. That means I’d be more correct to agree with the “two systems of justice” idea making the rounds. Still, it’s not a good thing that most politicians are lawyers; it’s a corrupt thing, for lawyers are practised at lying — and charging.
I have dealt with perhaps 20 lawyers in my life and I have known 2 honest ones — Gary Harmel and Mark Lecovin, both of Vancouver, Canada. I also think there are some true, humanitarian prosecutors, but I suspect these are almost all on lower levels. I suspect the FISA court judges were also corrupt — or really, really stupid. Any honest judge would have seen through the pathetic charade presented by the FBI. And, to continue in my gloom, I believe the FBI’s rot goes much further down than the top echelons.) When cops have a crooked police chief, they tend to break the law. The FBI has had a crooked chief from 2001 to 2017 — almost two decades. (During which they — Comey and Mueller — tried to railroad an Alaskan senator into jail by hiding evidence, and knowingly kept other prisoners in jail for years, whom they knew were innocent. These are not harmless bureaucrats; these are power-hungry, evil and destructive men.
The Democrats — or the Left — is becoming more and more fascist. Some of their tactics are reminiscent of the early Nazi regime. Yet there is a beauty to, or beside, everything. The left’s green new deal is this beauty: it’s pastoral, idealistic, and, in a way, loveable. In addition, it carries two valuable things: incipient change, and a vision of a future which might occur in some form, or be a major shaping factor of a new political system.
