As The Gateway Pundit has been reporting for over a year — the Russia Collusion fairy tale is the largest conspiracy theory ever perpetrated on the American public.
The Democrats and their media at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the AP, CBS, ABC, etc. have fabricated a story without a single iota of truth that the Trump Campaign was colluding with the leadership of Russia to steal the 2016 US election.
And now there is a poll to prove how well the Fake News mainstream media has pushed this lie on the American public.
Yet, two-thirds of Democrats and 48% of ALL women believe Russia not only colluded but tampered with the vote tallies in 2016.
This is the biggest lie ever perpetrated on the American public.
And yet they label Gateway Pundit and other conservative websites fake news.
These are not good people.
Fake news is a serious problem in our political life. I’m not referring to a pathetically small number of Facebook ads bought by Russian provocateurs. I’m talking about the fake news that was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee; fabricated by Democratic Party-allied consultants; propagated by the FBI and the CIA; promoted by the broadcast networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press; trumpeted by pretty much every senior elected Democrat; and kept alive by the appalling Robert Mueller. The claim that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to “steal” the 2016 presidential election is the great fake news of our time.
How successful have the Democrats been in propagating that myth? This survey by The Economist and YouGov suggests that they have been successful beyond their wildest dreams. . .
In the surreal alternative reality world of the US Congress, there are many bills passed each year that on the surface may sound like good ideas — they even give them high-sounding names like the US PATRIOT ACT or Better Care and Reconciliation Act, that in fact are the opposite of what they claim to be (the former actually being an unpatriotic undermining of the Bill of Rights and the latter actually being an unsuccessful attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (itself a deceptively named bill that forced middle-income families to buy hugely expensive insurance plans or pay a tax penalty).But few of these deceptions are as egregious as one being pushed by embattled incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is advocating a bill that would require any legislation that would raise taxes on incomes in the bottom 80% to be passed with a 60% majority of the House.
That bill, while promoted by Pelosi as protecting the middle class from future tax rises, actually would make impossible passage of any bill expanding Medicare to cover all Americans, creating a kind of Canadian-model national health system, and might even prevent efforts to strengthen and improve Social Security benefits as called for by progressive Democrats.
The thing is, a broad majority of Americans, including many Republicans, and an overwhelming majority of Democrats, favor Medicare-for-All, a program that would extend and expand Medicare coverage making it a government insurance plan for covering all medical care for all Americans of any age — exactly what Canadians have had since 1971, and which they have overwhelmingly supported through both Liberal and Conservative governments since then.
And to fund such a program, Medicare taxes (currently 1.45% for worker and employer) would of course have to be significantly raised. But what conservative and even so-called “moderate” Democrats who oppose Medicare-for-All deliberately don’t say in criticizing the idea as a tax-increasing horror is that it would eliminate the need to pay insurance premiums for all people and also for employers, that it would eliminate the need to spend $140 billion a year or more on a Veterans Administration bureaucracy to care for military veterans, that it would eliminate Medicaid, the program that provides care for the poor and which currently costs over $600 billion a year in federal and state tax dollars, that it would end “charity care” which is the “free care” hospitals have to provide to ER patients who have to be treated if they have no other funding and don’t qualify for Medicaid — care which ends up raising private insurance premiums for those who do have insurance, and that would even lower car insurance premiums, since these would no longer have to pay for hospital care caused by accidents.
The lie here is that raising taxes on everyone to fund Medicare-for-All could in the end massively reduce health care costs for everyone in society, while also ensuring that nobody was without full access to fully funded health care. It’s what Americans want, poll after poll shows, even given all the propagada and lies about it, but Congress, including Democrats, are so anxious to keep receiving huge amounts of money from the Medical Industrial Complex, that they are loath to support a program that would cut out the private insurance industry, force the drug and hospital industry and physicians to receive negotiated payments reached with the government instead of charging whatever they want in a “market” that doesn’t really permit genuine consumer choice and competition. . .
This documentary presents the most comprehensive summary I’ve seen of important evidence that seems to exonerate Palestinian-born Sirhan Bashara Sirhan in the 1968 assassination of Senator Robert F Kennedy. Sirhan, currently serving a life sentence in a San Diego state correctional facility, has been fighting for a new trial since 1994. Dr William S Pepper, who heads his legal team, also headed the defense of the late James Earl Ray, alleged assassin of Martin Luther King. In 1999, Pepper won a civil suit on behalf of the King family, when the jury found the US government (not Ray) was responsible for King’s murder. See The Truth Behind the Assassination of Martin Luther King
Among the evidence pointing to Sirhan’s innocence:
There were 13 shots in the Ambassador Hotel pantry where Kennedy was killed, and Sirhan’s gun only held eight bullets.
The autopsy revealed the fatal shot came from behind and all witnesses agree Sirhan was in front of the senator when he fired his gun.
The Los Angeles Police Department tampered with and destroyed evidence and bullied witnesses to make them change their testimony.
Based on all eyewitness testimony, the defense team asserts Kennedy was killed by a second . The latter is identified as one of three possible individuals – Eugene Cesar, Michael Wayne (who left with the infamous girl in the polka dot dress* after the LAPD briefly detained him) and a third unidentified men who closely resembled Sirhan.
Like Mark Chapman, John Lennon’s alleged assassin, Sirhan has no recollection whatsoever of the shooting. He has been extensively examined by psychologists, hypnotists and mind control experts who believe he was subject to some kind of hypnotic mind control. Pepper presented this evidence at Sirhan’s final federal appeal in 2013 but filed to convince the appellate court.
Sirhan has been eligible for parole since 1980. His last, unsuccessful parole application was in 2016.
The vast majority of what we “know” about human psychology and behavior comes from studies conducted with a narrow slice of humanity – college students, middle-class respondents living near universities and highly educated residents of wealthy, industrialized and democratic nations.
But a growing body of research has raised concerns that many of these discoveries suffer from severe biases of their own. Specifically, the vast majority of what we know about human psychology and behavior comes from studies conducted with a narrow slice of humanity – college students, middle-class respondents living near universities and highly educated residents of wealthy, industrialized and democratic nations.
The fires themselves are the direct result of overdevelopment of formerly unsettled parts of California — for divergent yet related reasons. In Southern California, the Woolsey Fire has largely consumed high-priced real estate in beautiful, pristine areas sold to people with money. The Northern California Camp Fire, on the other hand, has affected many poorer and older Californians — some of whom have been pushed out of overpriced urban areas: in other words, due to gentrification.
Over the past two decades, forest fires have become a problem that increasingly impacts the health and lives of Californians. Currently, there over 20 active fires blazing in California according to the CAL FIRE website, fire.ca.gov/general/firemaps.
Some are referred to as National Forest fires, which are a natural, annual occurrence in California after a long, dry summer.
The abundance and frequency of the current spate of fires, however, can be seen as the result of anarchic capitalism and the drive for profits in real estate. And the serious consequences in death and destruction can be blamed on the lack of social planning to confront emergencies, complicated by an ultraright president.

President Trump had asked the CIA to do an assessment of the murder. Apparently, from the leak to the US press, part of the evidence came from National Security Agency wiretaps of the Saudi Embassy in Washington, DC. They caught Khalid Bin Salman, the crown prince’s brother and Saudi ambassador to the US, telling Khashoggi that it would be fine for him to pick up the paperwork needed for his marriage to his Turkish fiancee from the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Either Prince Khalid was in on the plot to murder Khashoggi, or he was duped by his brother to lull the dissident journalist into a false sense of security. He called Khashoggi on instructions from his brother, MBS.
Trump had asked for the report, but it is unlikely that he wanted it made public. The CIA is deliberately leaking it. Since the agency is aware that Mohammed Bin Salman is teflon inside Saudi Arabia, it seems probable that the target of the leak is in the US. The member of the administration closest to MBS is Jared Kushner, though Trump himself has admitted that he wants the sale of US arms to MBS more than he wants Khashoggi’s killer brought to justice. The CIA may be attempting to discredit Kushner and to detach Trump from his alliance with the crown prince.
The Saudi government has attempted to whitewash the murder. First it denied the killing. Then it blamed low-level rogue intelligence agents. Then it sentenced the latter to death so as to make sure they do not talk. The Saudis deny that Mohammed Bin Salman ordered that Khashoggi be whacked, which is laughable, since no one would dare do such a thing without his orders. It is an absolute monarchy, after all.
