JBSFC and McCarthyite Intimidation

Please be sure to listen to at least the first ten minutes of this podcast.

Wed, Feb 20, 2019 - 9:39am

Please be sure to listen to this new podcast. Your jaw will drop during the first eight minutes.

To wit, the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is now actively attempting to intimidate regular citizens who may have had contact with any media or political organizations in Russia or have traveled to Russia at any time in the past few years.

This is outrageous! With history as a guide and knowing that past is often prologue, we have frequently discussed on this site the likelihood that the US would likely soon descend into a form of neo-McCarthyism and redbaiting. Well, here we are.

As usual, I implore you to listen to these podcasts this week and every week. Nowhere else in western media will you find such a fair, objective and balanced discussion of The New Cold War.

So Who's Funding Committee Members?

These guys on the Committee are OWNED and CONTROLLED by those that paid for their elections and re-elections. Is it not how that works for at least the powerful CONgressmen? (Yes, both genders.) Those that are more honestly representing their citizenry don't actually seem to accomplish much clean up of crime on the national level. They are pretty limited to communication with those that subscribe to their emails.

Points brought up on the Pt 2 of program above: Podesta crimes get NO attention from the MM, and are easily forgotten, as are the Clinton crimes as Sec of State and Russian deals, only one of which was the uranium deal. Those have fallen off the radar of the public, too. Where are the CONgressional investigations of that? Where are the demands that FBI investigate BREACHES OF NATIONAL SECURITY? Republican, Democrate, it doesn't matter that much anymore. Corruption long ago crossed the isle. Why isn't Trump, the BOSS of the Justice Dept, investigating? He's proved he can tweet the results of his investigations and bring charges....That whould at least help the sleepy, overworked public remember a few things for a bit longer.

The shadow government's totalitarianism is well on the way toward ruling our lives, and our children's lives.

My jaw did not drop

I've been watching with increasing dismay since 9/11.

I saw the McCabe/Pelley fluff piece and how I wished Mike Wallace were still here. McCabe threw Rosenstein under the bus, and since Rosenstein is said to retire in March I'm waiting for him to return the favour.

None of this was new as It had all been leaked.

It looks like the rats are turning to devour each other and if this ever gets into court it will sustain CNN for years.

In the age of deception, the first step is to be aware.

We must recognize that from our birth we have people manipulating our perceptions. Both good or ill intents can be involved, and we can inherit our perceptions. I know my internet searches have been manipulated since at least 6 years ago. (It's often helpful to use "tools" to shorten the time or age of the term.)

What they omit is often telling. So is what they oppose. Both more and less passion to a subject can give a clue.

I find specific names to be revealing which has led me to search for committees or committee members names.

Recently I've been noticing my search will return an article on Zero Hedge that I never saw listed. I check it daily, page to earlier articles and such. Yet these pieces never showed. This happens mostly with more complicated or specific complete names.

Go figure.
