Treason 2.0: Media-Communicated Psychiatric Disorders

News as a Disorder? Not in the DSM-5, yet.  So, grab $112-bucks and buy your own copy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition: DSM-5 while you can. Bound to be a collectable.

While Abram Beneson et al  did such a masterful job in Control of Communicable Diseases in Man (14th ed. through 1990) there is nothing in it about “news” or “infotainment” as a communicable disease.  “We’re in a war without guns,” observed wife Elaine this morning.  Such is the nature of coup d’état’s.

Yet, the data stacks up all around us: What used to be “news” is now largely propaganda fed by left-leading media and their syndicates which habitually support Soft Coup conspirators.

We have no further to look, to support our thinking, than the front page of the  NY Times; a once reputable journalistic outpost. The Times alleges:  “Trump Pressed Australian Leader to Help Barr Investigate Mueller Inquiry’s Origins — The discussion was another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain.

Another instance”???  Really?

We recently reminded you of the Six Questions of Journalism *Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How). It’s critical to ask all six when a story like this appears.

I’m compelled to chastise the Times for asserting this is “…another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain…”

It is not, at least provably so, yet.  Leaving their assertion nothing more than opinion and thus the Times is guilty, in our analysis, of convicting a sitting President or wrong-doing without trial.  The Court of Public Opinion is crooked.

It’s the kind of thing you’d expect during a Marxist coup. Who needs a firing squad if you own the media?  Modern coup’s skate if “gun free” it appears.

The next important shortfall in the latest Trump hit-piece is who leaked the classified contents to the Times Are former Obamanistas still getting their daily intel briefs?  No one seems to be asking those kinds of questions.  Is Obama getting briefs?

We come to the doorstep of the Soft Coup leadership, which the Times identifies in today’s story as “...according to the two people with knowledge of the discussion…”  WHO, damn it?  Who?  And then HOW?

The Soft Coup effort is shielded by carefully orchestrating the newspaper’s views, obscurring the facts.  A phony consensus is then portrayed.  The “party on the outs” gets sucked in.

How?  This is done when a normal conversation between global leaders interested in global corruption and presumed “secret”  is leaked and twisted into a political football.

Carefully note the Times use of the phrase “ effect asking..” Another propagandist’s tool:  Act as though something is a fact when it’s NOT.  See how this rolls?

It’s here we circle back to the Media-Communicated Psychiatric Disorder observation.  The terms “in effect” and “un-named sources” are two of the slimiest in all journalism.  They are used when the content of a story is uncertain.  The Times has already effectively impeached Trump (along with Pelosi and Schiff).  the fix is in, the phony consensus being sold.

Which leads Where?   Facts are no longer needed. They are an inconvenience to the law-breaking Coup. Only innuendo is needed because that’s what works.

Let’s be clear on something being soft-soaped by the Mainstreem crooks:  the Trump administration is pursuing an investigation of former VP Joe Biden and his abuses of power – strong-arming foreign governments with US funds – for his son’s benefit.  Crooked Joe should get a pass because he’s a political opponent?  Not in this world…yet, that’s what the lefties are selling, you see?

Not only had Biden acted in a crooked manner but then audaciously bragged about it.  Getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired in six hours by threatening to withhold American aid.  Trump, on the other hand, merely asks for help (with no mention of aid in the transcript) that Ukraine tell U.S. investigators what they know about dirty Joe and Ukraine involvement in the DNC/HRC email server cover-up.  All hits the fan.  Can you spell double-standard?

That’s right,  the real crimes were the ones covered-up by James Comey and his partisan underlings at the FBI.  Hillary’s skating team.

While the Times is the leading leaker for the Soft Coup, we must also mention that MSN picked up the story. When gullible readers of the Drudge Report clicked-over to to read the story, no doubt some missed that it’s a story being pushed by the NY Times.

Let me frame it this way:  “The NY Times, is in effect, the news bureau for the Soft Coup.”

We have to believe this has not escaped the notice of attorney general William Barr.  With any luck, he has a quiet grand jury sequestered somewhere that will – in due course – not only indict the leaders of the Soft Coup (which gets to former Obama officials) but also co-conspiring “media outlets” that rebroadcast the Soft Coup press releases.  Which – in our view – break federal laws by outing conversations president Trump has had as president.

The media’s body slam of Trump is based on the frail notion that Trump needs any help from Justice or Barr, to mop the floor with Joe Biden should Joe even survive (due to corruption in his Ukraine story) to be Trump’s opponent next year.

Our deeply held conviction (if you’ll pardon the choice of words) is that other left-wing elements, operating at the behest of the Democrat National Committee, are breaking federal laws in a desperate attempt to derail Trump’s second term.  They have effectively neutered his first three years already. with no proven Russian involvement.  Lies of told, huh?

Clearly, to this reporter of 50+years seniority in reporting, democrats were forced into their ill-thought impeachment drive because Trump/Barr were heading down an easy path to indict Joe Biden ahead of the election.  Dems were forced to take the impeachment “low road” in order to seize the “communications initiative.”  They will have to ride this pony all the way to the election now because they have no other sales pitch.  God knows the House hasn’t accomplished anything of note.  Do-Nothings need to make up stuff…following?

This battle, well described in 2002 by Yergin and Stanislaw in “The Commanding Heights : The Battle for the World Economy” now features partisans working-over both sides of the political apparatus.

The Soft Coup leaders were in a video-game-like situation.  You know:  First look, first shoot.  They  had to take the shot to remove one of the “two old white men” from their ticket.  This leaves ’em one “old white man” – socialist Bernie, who may give some undeserved respectability to bankrupt socialist policies.  Which leave Liz Warren’s presidency (with Yang?) and as we’ve explained in the historical context, Warren’s likely to reprise FDR.

Back to our original point:  The news is crooked insofar as it’s obviously biased and run by a Soft Coup cell.  Both parties are morally bankrupt, no doubt, but, the baby-killing, open border party appeals less to us.

American politics could do with a great deal of reinvention. But that doesn’t involved ending the Electoral College which preserves the rights of smaller states.  The lefties want it gone because that’s how Digital Mob Rule works.  Three states would then decision America’s future.  Maybe Texas ought to return to nationhood, again?

Major media – facing an excess of communications bandwidth and little actual news – is desperate for eyes and ears.  Bills have to be paid. Hysteria is driving current events to echo Yellow Journalism:

“Yellow journalism and the yellow press are American terms for journalism and associated newspapers that present little or no legitimate well-researched news while instead using eye-catching headlines for increased sales.”

All summed up this way: “An English magazine in 1898 noted, “All American journalism is not ‘yellow’, though all strictly ‘up-to-date’ yellow journalism is American!”

Today America doesn’t have much “journalism” left.  The modern perversion is an outgrowth of a Soft Coup to install Digital Mob Rule.  When comes to actual news, there are few barriers to entry.  The desperate result is part yellow, part fake, and highly communicable.

This makes it very much disease-like.

Social media can, to use the right term, instantiate a number of disorders.  Just out in September was the paper “Distress, Suicidality, and Affective Disorders at the Time of Social Networks.

When news syndicates repeat biased antigovernment reports (by suborning law-breaking and distributing these in support of a Soft Coup agenda, such as impeachment), coupled with social media repost and re-tweet technologies, a feedback loop has emerged that induces mental aberrations.

Leaders of the Soft Coup are proceeding exactly in this manner.  Since it’s a new level of  crime – levering social media complexification to unseat a sitting president – it’s akin to Treason, but not yet cast in law.

I remember covering the November 1971 case of D.B. Cooper.  Like the cancerous remnants of the Deep State, socialist infiltrators, and prior administrations, there was no law against air piracy at the time Cooper jumped the plane.  He invented the “crime category” skyjacking.

The Deep State/Remnants have invented their own “new category of crime”  Media manipulation for a Soft Coup. 

Because it’s more complex than singular acts treason (like the Rosenberg’s theft of H-bomb secrets) its very complexity makes it difficult not only to comprehend but to codify and then enforce.  the classic “Loophole big enough for a Kenworth.”

Just as Osama bin Laden took the obvious weapons of mass destruction parked around airports in hand, the Soft Coup has picked up and orchestrated the previously loose connections and they’re playing ’em like a symphony.

There are no laws yet existent, barring such orchestrated use of multi-mode mass messaging via networks to affect radical political change.  What you are seeing, however is Treason 2.0.

We are thus, floundering in a state of National Emergency without the brains to see it.  And therefore we lack the legal skills to promptly excise the cancer before it metastasizes.

Which it did when Pelosi caved-in to the shrill demands of the Soft Coup.

Reader Note:  Anti-Trump comments and those off-topic of the specific feedback loop will not be approved.  This is not partisan anymore, it has become clearly psychiatric.

One Further Thought

Given that such hypothecated feedback loop (across media, such as from “news paper” to “syndicate” to “repost/retweet”) has been weaponized for political purposes, we have to consider whether this has occurred previously in recorded history.

For example, was there a great warning contained in the Bible’s book of Genesis where the Tower of Babel is told? (Genesis 11:1)

Go with me on this:  Could it be that past high civilizations on Earth have run into this communications overhead problem before?

We have demonstrably succumbed to media communicable psychiatric disorders –  MCPD’s we’ll call them – already “talking past one-another” with alarming frequency.

Sheep are easily herded when media do not faithfully report facts for The People to judge for themselves.  In its place are manipulated presentations of events; such that facts are are asserted where none exist.  As in “sources” and “in effect” which frankly are propagandist tools.  See Edweard Bernays, Propaganda.

My point being, if there is a historical case of communications failure, does continuously compounding media not lead at some point to a re-splintering of society?  Are we in a historical template which most are not aware of?

Back to the Circus

Time to inspect the clowns, again:

China’s rolling missiles on parade (again) as ‘No Force Can Stop the Chinese People’: Xi Celebrates 70 Years of Communist government.

Despite the bent of the front section of the NYT, they do have good content in their biz section.  Like this one:  “Eat Less Red Meat, Scientists Said. Now Some Believe That Was Bad Advice.

Proof of news dilution: Recipes for National Homemade Cookie Day, Oct. 1st!

Eating more?  Let’s look for the book-end story, then, shall we? Found it!   Americans are getting bigger.’ FAA testing if passengers can safely evacuate cramped airplanes.”  See?  there is some logic of news.

What is Time thinking? Here’s Everything New on Amazon Prime Video in October 2019?

Am I suggesting Time is trying to reprise TV Guide?  No, but they also have this: Here’s Everything New on Netflix in October 2019 — and What’s Leaving.  Just saying…if it quacks like a duck…

Here comes winter: Cold and snow for parts of the West, summertime heat for the South and East.

Dow futures early were up 9 points on the S&P.  More than one is apparently born every minute. That said, we notice that all of Europe has turned red, so whether Monday’s Rosh Hashanah (ends tonight) gains will hold through the week remains an interesting speculation.

  1. IMHO, the New York Times is the contemporary American Left’s equivalent to the CPSU’s Pravda during Soviet times, its op-ed function being keeping the Nomenklatura abreast of modifications of the Party Line.

    IMHO, NYT is one of the reasons why NYC is anus mundi.

  2. Plain and simple, with the Left ascending in Europe and within our good old ‘Merika, ‘nationalism’ is now a dirty word. “Make America Great Again” is labeled as ‘racist’ and ‘hate speech.’ One in favor of Brexit is considered “hard right” or “misinformed.” Brexit places Great Britain before a European union unified under the German economy (something Hitler couldn’t pull off, but Angela Merkel just might.)

    The progressive left media are doing everything possible to erase the historical fact that the freedoms Europe, the U.S. and Pacific nations enjoy today are due to the actions of the British-American alliance in WWII. Fascism was wiped from the planet and the world was firmly steered through a turbulent post-WWII Cold War with the Soviets because of the steadfast doctrine of nuclear and economic deterrence isolating the communist Soviet empire and forcing it to die from within.

    Recall the Soviet Warsaw Pact? The ‘stay’ option for Great Britain smacks of this kind of socialist rule, where Brussels and not London determines immigration, immunization, taxation and medical coverage, let a lone military/defense spending and future alliances. Great Britain has a working health care model paid for by a high tax rate – something Obama tried to model. If GB stays in the EU, anyone from the EU will go to GB for free care, with the British, Welsch, Scots and N. Irish footing the bill, crashing the health care system or seriously diluting its capablities. This ‘hand out’ mentality has yet to be been reckoned with by the EU.

    The EU needs Great Britain due to rising threats at Europe’s underbelly. Great Britain does not need the EU. And the free world needs a strong ‘Merika, a ‘great’ ‘Merika, that can stand toe to toe with the next round of evil that will surface at a time when the rest of the world least expects it. Cage ‘Merika and Great Britain and the hounds of hell will soon be loosed.

    • Britain has more in common with the US than Europe. Common history, common language, common identity.

      • This country was founded in opposition to monarchies in general, and the British Crown in particular. There seem to be a lot of people confusing US with the Canadians.

    • interesting comment. not arguing, just asking. was fascism not “paper clipped” resulting in the mess we are in now? i often wonder if the term “cold war” really meant get ready for an ice age. using nukes as a cover for all the d.u.m.b.s..

  3. I might subscribe to the NYT, IF they used paper that was just a little bit softer. Or maybe not, as the yellow paper could transfer to my lower region as I used the yellow NYT for it’s only remaining purpose?

    But the real culprit for all of this lies in plain sight, and it is a 3-letter agency:

    “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”?

    I am the source for this quote, which was indeed said by CIA Director William Casey at an early February 1981 meeting of the newly elected President Reagan with his new cabinet secretaries to report to him on what they had learned about their agencies in the first couple of weeks of the administration.

    The meeting was in the Roosevelt Room in the West Wing of the White House, not far from the Cabinet Room. I was present at the meeting as Assistant to the chief domestic policy adviser to the President. Casey first told Reagan that he had been astonished to discover that over 80 percent of the ‘intelligence’ that the analysis side of the CIA produced was based on open public sources like newspapers and magazines.

    As he did to all the other secretaries of their departments and agencies, Reagan asked what he saw as his goal as director for the CIA, to which he replied with this quote, which I recorded in my notes of the meeting as he said it.

    Shortly thereafter I told Senior White House correspondent Sarah McClendon, who was a close friend and colleague, who in turn made it public. Barbara Honegger

    • Poor fella died of a “heart attack” while on a canoe/ paddle- Eastern Shore, MD – 80’s

      Deadmen tell no tales..

    • I was looking for that quote: ““We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

      I believe that is where we are as a country. Vaccines, Big Pharma, Media, Education, Food, Chemicals, Sprays, Crops, Borders, Immigration, Housing, Stock Market, State of the Nation, Jobs, Polls, FDA, CDC, USDA, FTC, Homeland Security, man-made global warming, Savings rates, Land Ownership, Taxes, etc., everything known is not known, all is a manufactured mess from start to finish. A big whooping Lie.

    • “Casey first told Reagan that he had been astonished to discover that over 80 percent of the ‘intelligence’ that the analysis side of the CIA produced was based on open public sources like newspapers and magazines.”

      O2………. I have said for decades.. there are no secrets at all…

      Just like most men and their wives.. did you buy something you didn’t want your wife to know you bought.. .. you buy it set it in plain site then let it grow dust.. then when you say non chanlant.. honey did you see my.. she says what.. then pull it out never mind sweetie I found it..

      all the biggest TS things are in plain site.. they tell us things daily show us plant it in front of us.. for a govt.. you have the committees.. then you have the people that are working on it.. so lets say each section has fifty thousand people that know about it.. how can you keep that under the cover.. you cannot.. so put it out in the open let everyone know all about it.. then discredit what they hear.. same as our president.. they put all this negative stuff.. ( they are discrediting him..) even though the things they are discrediting are exactly what he was elected for.. but make the public believe that what they wanted and voted him in for in the first place was wrong.. figure how many billions they have spent trying to convince everyone that what they wanted was not what they wanted and that the president doing what they wanted.. securing our border, bringing jobs back home, valuing our dollar again, reducing the cost of healthcare, balancing the checkbook securing our companies value on the stock market.. is what is wrong.. anyway I got side tracked… to me.. the best way to see is look for the odd story in the paper.. then see how many millions is spent to prove it wrong.. take the newspaper rag at the checkout.. the one with the odd stories.. how many of those are true.. discredit….put the truth out there.. that way when it all comes to glory.. no one can say.. what.. why didn’t you tell us.. when it is all around them daily.. just like the wife.. she can’t say.. where did that come from when it has been in front of her the whole time… the best kept secret is the one right in front of you..

  4. Careful G – waking up sheep can be very traumatic – the news is fake?! Always was – always will be – from Single Bullet to Box Cutters – all smoke and mirrors. Just like the “coin” of the realm, the USD – made up/propped up BS.

    Every single thing we have ever been told/ brainwashed with since birth ..jesus was real – he rose from the dead..after 3 days – and he didn’t smell a little bit! Miraculous! sign me up..

    – yeah those guyz that nailed his ass to crucifix – he just forgave them.. talk about a black comedy..turn the other cheek..little boy.

    What ! the hardest money, in the world, known to mankind – has Value other than the full faith and credit of the US military..nuhunh

    ? how does a Rat act when cornered/trapped..high pitched squeals/ mockingbird media, frantic attempts at escape/schiff, nadler, pelosi, brenner,comey clinton (s) all acolytes of Alinsky – whose Rues for Radicals book is dedicated to lucifer..big F-ing suprise, no.

    Wonder who the aforementioned “radicals” worship..

  5. The Deep State is a like minded group of individuals who don’t think they are ever wrong, & don’t care what the American Publics thinks or what is best for them. They have their own agenda, & since it is their agenda, it must be right. Dam the torpedoes, full speed ahead.

    • After Trump is demonized, is the Deep State looking to appointment the Anti- Christ as leader of the US as a lynch pin to conquer the world, or form a World Power Group to suck the world wealth into their pockets. Defeating China, Russia, & Europe in a war would initially would be too costly & the US Currency would no longer be the world currency. Without our Dollar being the Gold Standard, the US could not keep printing wealth unhampered. A new World Dollar would be needed. But slowly the Deep State could bankrupt the competition & then send the Army in to take over. They would have a World Dollar Gold Standard that could be used to fund a war. No one would have the power to stop the World Dollar printing presses.

  6. The WSJ has sure been sticking with the Make America Great theme. Have been a happy camper with their reporting

  7. Ever since reading your posts, I’ve come to appreciate the solid 7 question list that can answer almost any situation one may become interested in knowing about (Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?–and my favorite now– How does this fit a business/financial/personal gain model?). More importantly, it can answer alot in your own life as to how things come to pass.

    I’ve been hammering the importance of asking these question to both my kids since they were little, and it shows. They seem to look at everything a bit more shrewdly than their peers, who seem to be stuck in their latest greatest phone models, instead of learning anything. Judging by the parental crowd I see when doing anything school function-wise, their parents aren’t much better.

  8. Robert,
    IMHO, Fox News is the contemporary American Right’s equivalents to the CPS*’s Pravda during Soviet Times, it’s op-Ed function being keeping the Nomenclatura abreast of modifications of the Party line.
    IMHO, Fox News is one of the reasons why Jackson, Mississippi is anus mundi.

    • @ Mark

      ALL you have is your opinion…based on what, MSM news releases..and your hate for DJT….well here is my opinion based on your comments…….FUATHURIO..with all due respect..

    • Gosh Mark, I find it hard to believe you ever had a Humble opinion, you just don’t strike me as a humble sort of guy. Glad you made it in today, I needed to hear how the MSM pablum is going over. I have worked in Psych care for a while and reading your posts gives me a great feelings of job security. Ever consider changing your posting name to REDACTED?

  9. The Confrontation Clause of the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that “in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right…to be confronted with the witnesses against him.” Generally, the right is to have a face-to-face confrontation with witnesses who are offering testimonial evidence against the accused in the form of cross-examination during a trial. The Fourteenth Amendment makes the right to confrontation applicable to the states and not just the federal government.[1] The right only applies to criminal prosecutions, not civil cases or other proceedings.

    Where is the Accuser??? Where is the beef???

    • Why is everyone so focused on the whistleblower? The investigation is about the information provided and whether it has merit. The whistleblower has no obligation beyond reporting the wrongdoing. In fact, the whistleblower act is set up to protect the whistleblower’s identity to protect against repercussions. The Prez’s bluster is in itself a violation of the Act. His lawyers should know this. More bluster and smoke blowing.

      The real frustration everyone is experiencing is not knowing the specifics of the allegation, only that the wrongdoing occurred probably during a phone call with a foreign power official. I believe the information was and still is highly classified — probably a compromise of highly sensitive intelligence about the Crimea area revealed to show off.

      These government officials (IG’s, Congressoids, etc.) are not inexperienced, amateur hacks. The professionals know what they are doing and if they are pursuing this thing, there is fire behind all of this smoke.

  10. Yo George – its October 1st and the “Grumpasoreass” came out of his ranch office and did not see his shadow!
    Which of course means the Crash of 19 is donkey-kong and of course Samhain comes soonly – dont forget your Spirits – lest they forget U.

    Also means the deer will soonly be leaping in front of moving vehicles all over our highways and biways – fresh road killed deer. Dogs love the venison, and the antlers are to my dogs, like catnip is to cats – jus like crackcoke.

    Got Gold- not hard enough? – got BTC’s – No Power – no problem – till your starving neighbors come a calling..

  11. George,
    Not so fast…hail whistleblowers all over the world. I can tell you that nobody likes working for and with [redacted]. For instance…The fake news tries to tell us that there is nothing but happy times over at [redacted]….Loyal employees, happy and love their job….except that’s a lie. In his book..[redacted]. details the lack of decency and backbone of [redacted.

    Many others have come out and stated much worse, but others are afraid of the blowback and attacks they know they would get back from [redacted]. and like an [redacted], they shrink into themselves and say nothing.

    The staff at [redacted] are aghast at what goes on in [redacted] World. I can say with confidence that nobody that works [redacted]. They more than likely gather at the local DC pub and drown in their horrific experiences of the day…This is usually where leaks start. It spreads, and more stories unfold to the point where an Alpha or the group takes the plunge to reveal the misdeeds. This happens in corporate America too. It’s leakers like these that helped us win the wars with PG&E, Karen Silkwood ar the Kerr-McGee Nuclear Plant, Monsanto, GlaxoSmithKline, Boeing, AstraZeneca, HSBC, and dozens more.

    Patriots are doing their due diligence and ratting on [redacted],too. And i say… about time. Now if only the Senate and the entire GOP, not just the usual half dozen who loathe [redacted] would only grow a pair and do the same.

    Editor’s note. Name the whistleblower and how they “came to know that which they claim” AND who changed the whistleblower form to allow second-hand/rumor reports and the redacts may be lifted.
    Until them, please hold to the topic of the media-driven psychiatric disorders being imposed by the soft coup. Thank you.

    • First…read the IG’s statements today. The Whistle Blower does have first hand knowledge and second hand knowledge, which by law is 100% admissible. The IG is extremely upset at GOP talking points about hearsay.

      The irony is, all of the talk about hearsay is hearsay. The Biden conspiracies are hearsay and just about everything that comes out of Trumps mouth is hearsay. Nobody knows, but we will find out soon.

      And…George, your redactions actually make my point even stronger. Everyone knows you redacted the name Trump. Redaction, prohibitions, censors never work. You should know better.

      • Again, I call upon your mental acuity here. While the IGIC did in fact say:

        ” Although the form requests information about whether the Complainant possesses first-hand knowledge about the matter about which he or she is lodging the complaint, there is no such requirement set forth in the statute. In fact, by law the Complainant – or any individual in the Intelligence Community who wants to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees – need not possess first-hand information in order to file a complaint or information with respect to an urgent concern. ”
        That is FAR from saying that the original complainant had first-hand knowledge.

        It is not clear on this point for two reasons:
        “The Complainant on the form he or she submitted on August 12, 2019 in fact checked two relevant boxes: The first box stated that, “I have personal and/or direct knowledge of events or records involved”; and the second box stated that, “Other employees have told me about events or records involved.” The checkmark matter is therefore ambiguous: Did he have first-hand OR did others tell, or did he discuss with others?

        I believe that the whistleblower made a complaint and that the IG’s office looked into it, and interviewed a few others. As it should be.

        However it begs the larger question who was the leaker/complainer and why are they judging a sitting president’s action formerly secret. That’s the troubling point.

        The president is reserved broad powers and one of those is to operate as he sees fit. Unless an official recording is produced (too easy to fake transcripts) there is no quid pro quo documented so far and the impeachment a farce.

        Even when the use of taxpayer money is tied to strong-arming of a foreign leader, why isn’t Joe Biden doing a perp walk?> Or, Mark, is it there was one set of laws for Obama underlings and another for Trump?

        Equally justice under the law, anyone?

      • Yeah yeah Mark – and IG Horowitz did not work for Demonrats..

        yeah yeah Horwitz did not support Demonrats financially thru $ contributions..

        Pure D.S. “horsehockey” – your Lamestream – mockingbird media sources r making U look like a complete… Again.

    • Congratulations Mark, because in the end, you and your sorts, will be victorious. Your efforts were well worth it.

      p.s. I’m outta here ;-)

    • George,
      Why are you so kind/patient with Mark and his ilk, of which he is the worst on this blog? They are so brainwashed that NOTHING you or anyone else can say, and no facts you present, will ever change their minds. I’m not a Trump fanatic and there are times when I wonder if he’s just another deep state puppet, but these brainwashed idiots bring nothing but MSM propaganda and lies to this blog. If their anti-Trump material were verifiable FACTS and original, logical opinions, they’d be worth listening to. But it isn’t. They’re blind sheep running over a cliff. It would be a blessing to the rest of us if you’d redact everything they write.

      • I enjoy the mental challenge. I don’t hold any of my views as above question and therefore, is one of my assertions is flawed (not just odd!) I don’t mind sharing my thinking so others can consider my view.
        Made my 1% in he market in the first 90 minutes today, so just kicking it and working on new office lighting and the time machine report…,

      • TW…. I love Marks posts.. why.. I am the catfish at the bottom of the creek.. what I see and have experienced is stuff that I know about at my side of the creek.. he is the lilly pad floating on top.. so by reading what he writes I get to see the creek from his perspective…not the dark dank murky part of the creek..
        What surprises me is..
        What the president is trying to do.. will secure his financial situation so that he won’t be leaping from the top of his buildings..
        Yet.. he lives in the world where he wouldn’t give any of the well paid street urchins in SanFran free room and board.. even though they are having to deficate on the side walks.. He doesn’t say things that make me believe he has lived at the on the murky side of the pond.. so my guess is he comes from a family of plenty.. that helped him get his start and never let him experience the bottom .. and he doesn’t truly see any of the stuff in the murky side of the pond just the light sunny side of the pond.. if you have never lived it.. you will never know it until it hits..
        that is one reason why I help so many along the way.. I have seen the murky side.. I live just off of the bottom but close enough that I am constantly reminded about how bad it can be..
        like pain.. your in pain of arthritis.. and it goes away.. when it comes back it is like you had totally forgotten you had it it is new and fresh once again.. I promised I would not forget where I was at and would do what I could to help those in the same fate I had been in..
        a friend.. gave testimony before congress about a tradgedy… ( trust me you know what one ) and the company he worked for dumped his butt because he told the truth.. since he made lots of money his family dumped his butt.. then the hurricane hit.. it destroyed him.. no matter how many degree’s he had on the wall.. he was all alone..homeless..

    • Mark ,when you use the word redacted ,it sounds like you’re admitting you got a bunch of baggage in your station wagon. Lol, just beware of those little Bank swallows, no,,those are birds really ! Loki Birds. Have a good day …. but before I go are you sure you’re not a trumpeter swan ,that’s a Bird too. lol

  12. The results of poking a hornet’s hive with a stick go without saying. If you listen closely you may hear an angry buzzing getting louder.

  13. Good one today George. Is Speaker Pelosi losing control? or is it what she wants without getting any Blame? If she was half as dumb as she comes across, she would not be Speaker.Got to keep peeling the onion to get all the corruption exposed to Sunlight. The natering by the pundit class, media types just reveals how close to killing themselves they are. Yelling and whining about phantom crimes is telling.
    The seeds they are sowing will be terrible as they come to fruition. Keep the powder dry, enjoy the show, have an adult beverage, and a good meal. Things will be rocky.

    “And therefore we lack the legal skills to promptly excise the cancer before it metastasizes.”

    I Fear for what my grand children will have to live in if this coup is not stopped!

    It seems that Attorney General Barr is not moving fast enough to save the country.

    Therefor I suggest that President Trump declare Martial Law and institute a Military Tribunal similar to what was done at the end of World War II to judge the Nazi’s !!

    I’m not kidding. Drastic actions must be taken or America is doomed!

    If the democratic total control agenda is put in place it will lead to open warfare in the streets.

    Better to die as a free man then live as a slave.

      • I’m with you George, Move to Texas. I fully expect Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma to say good buy to the rest of the union. Lets face it the constitution they entered the union under no longer exists. That could explain why so many congress critters from Texas have resigned recently.

      • With ex-Left coasters and foreign nationals now overrunning Texas, the consensus here local is that Texas will be going to the D’s very soon.
        Jay- Be careful what you wish for.

    • That’s what I had expected after DJT was sworn in as “Commander in Chief.” He MISSED that once in a lifetime opportunity to save this country from going socialist, JMHO! It’s comming, just as certain, as the Amen in church.

    • I read a bill that was voted into law once… IF…. The way I read it and understood its meaning…the bill that congress passed said that if we are in a state of emergency and marshal law is declared by recommendation of the secretary of defense that Congress could theoretically be sent home and the countries security be turned over to the president and the defense dept. To bring things back to order..
      No elections no interference until the threat to our nation is contained..
      Now I’m no lawyer.. just some catfish that likes to read crap no one else I may have miss under stood its meaning or interpreted it wrong. My guess is congress sure didnt read it .. they wouldn’t have ever voted in stupid crap like that if they had read it..

      • Ah yes, from the archives of “continuity of government.” Yes,, if Trump and/or DoD became convinced that the US House has been subvertred by a foreign power, than defense of the Constitutional government would fall to President and Dod. But, hey, that was only to be used if we were about to go head to head with the FSU (former soviet union), right? Not head to head with a
        “fifth column” domestically. Yes if the “foo shits…”

  15. “… a normal conversation between global leaders interested in global corruption and presumed “secret” is leaked and twisted into a political football.”

    Why do we consume this “Schiss” ;-(? Perhaps that it maybe more entertaining than most of what is currently running on the boob tube.

    My point is: It’s hopeless on account of the populace. How many people read GU’s musings vs. NYT?

  16. Meh, propaganda – George W. Bush signed the propaganda laws just like the others. We know the propaganda started before WW2 when Middle Eastern complected Jesus morphed into White Euro-Jesus. Head of Christ, Warner Sallman (1940).

    All Trump has to do is text invite the patriots downtown for mass arrests of the Senate and Congress.

    Offer bounties on crafty playing cards. Someone would pull Pelosi out of her vacation chalet for a mini-pallet of $500,000 cash.

    Once it’s over, absolve the nation using mass pardons. Clemency?

    And another thing, every year there is a bill to kill the IRS but nobody ever signs it. Gee.

    H.R.25 – FairTax Act of 2019

    • OOWS: Not that again, I thought we put that to rest. You are coming back to propagandize this site again about a Middle Eastern Jesus morphing into a White Jesus….what a bunch of crap. What do you think we all have dementia?

    • “And another thing, every year there is a bill to kill the IRS but nobody ever signs it. Gee.”

      It’s one of the dead horse issues that get votes

  17. George,
    Right when I think I’m finally out, I get dragged back in.
    Please, can’t you guys all just take a chill pill.
    Instead of all these literally bonkers conspiracy theories?
    Look. There is clear evidence that Trump was likely extorting Ukraine for dirt on his main political rival. (Trump: “I would like you to do us a favor though . . . .”)
    For example, if a person heard 4 or 5 people saying that they had heard Sammy the Bull and John Gotti talking about a hit, wouldn’t you at least want it investigated thoroughly???
    So, at least wait until the facts are analyzed, the operative documents are reviewed and the percipient witnesses are interviewed before going full tilt drama queen.
    And, BTW, if that transcript summary is considered exculpatory by the Trump team, perhaps we all might prepare ourselves for even more upsetting evidence out there.
    Best, Mike.

    • You just don’t want it outed that Joe Biden did exactly what Trump is accused of and had gotten away with it!

      Your party will beat this dead horse until the election – take it to the bank. They have nothing else to sell

      • If Barr indicts some of the obvious players, the election is Trump’s to lose. The selective outrage, tortured innuendo, arguments requiring paragraphs of unprovable assumptions, and refusing to even discuss demonstrable facts, based on the reporting source, will catch up with the Left. They got the last congressional election by the fake Russia narrative. And several Pulitzers. The next election is too far off to keep the steam going, I suspect.

        Frankly, I think they are playing into Trump’s hand, because his refusal to play the Swamp game, and deliberate provocations are making them play badly at their own game.

        My liberal friends are beyond any discussion – literally in state of quasi-religious stupor. George is dead on about the mental disorder hypothesis. Showing them a provable fact that varies with the narrative they bleat verbatim from TV, causes various avoidance behaviors, all irrational.

        And these people were not like this in the past. Some new, hysterical form of viral cognitive dissonance. They literally cannot believe that investigating a pretty obvious corrupt scheme like crack-head Hunter getting $50k per month from oligarchs his Dad is dealing with is a legitimate target of investigation – while defending the Clinton-manufactured, government supported Fusion GPS inquiry is just fine.

        One way to end futile conversations with the religious Left is to ask how Mueller could have run a thorough and fair investigation, yet was unaware of even what Fusion GPS was.

    • If there is “CLEAR evidence” then the ‘extortion is not “LIKELY” it is fact, and I would expect that the old grey $lut would hold the entire front page for that “CLEAR evidence”

  18. George, Your article this morning made me think of Robert Jay Lifton’s brilliant book “Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: A Study of Brainwashing in China” published in 1961. After studying Korean War POWs, who were returning home anti-American, Lifton came up with his 8 criteria for thought reform. These 8 criteria really lays out how brainwashing occurs and can be applied to not only POWs but cults of all types whether religious, political (remember LaRouche), self-help (scientology), etc. It even can apply to large populations (Germany prior to WWII). To me, it appears the press is bringing into play several of Lifton’s criteria including **milieu control, sacred science and dispensing of existence. I know most are calling it propaganda but I think it goes deeper and is more sinister. Here’s a reference to the wiki:
    Also note that brainwashing is in DSM-5.

  19. As I wait for my Liberal friends in Canada to re-elect Justin (the budget will balance itself) Trudeau as Prime Minister of Canada in 3 weeks time, I watch the socialist coup happening to my good friends to the south and weep.

    As you consider all the “free” things that the squad and company are going to give you when they are running the show, please take a hard look at us and know that you are in for some unhappy times, particularly in the area of health care. Our hospitals are collapsing under the weight of “free care” and huge immigration including porous borders at many points, especially in Quebec.

    Wait times at our local hospital run anywhere from 8 hours to 18 hours depending on time of day before you can see a doctor, unless you are knocking at death’s door with a heart attack or serious motor vehicle accident. A broken arm or leg gets you in closer to 8 hours but 18 hours is normal for those with an ailment that is not life threatening or who are in less than excruciating pain. But it’s free!

    Trudeau has promised another 9 billion dollars of “free” goodies in the last few days. It extends from seniors like me (another 10% Old Age Security) to day care centres, etc, etc, etc. He has something free for everyone who can vote. “And the budget will balance itself.”

    I think Elaine nailed it. It is a war without guns. Let’s hope and pray that it never becomes a war with guns. You guys have them. We don’t.

    • If you want change, GET out and Support it. Sitting on our asses and bitching about it brought about “Deep State” and we are allowing it to exist. , We have the power to change it, but we have to make the effort. There is NO free lunch, only payment postponed!

    • “Wait times at our local hospital run anywhere from 8 hours to 18 hours depending on time of day ”

      It’s no different here….

      Just like everywhere it depends on money.. you can buy what you want.. the more you have the faster you get service..

      My friends father in law had to have a heart surgery.he had a section of land. They seized the land for the Bill’s accumulation.the comment made was. I always wanted a farm.
      Now if you don’t have insurance you don’t get service. The comment made to me was. If you dodnt have the money to pay. Why did you seek out medical treatment.
      I worked full time for a year in exchange for that bill and resurfaced a parking lot in trade for the skills needed.
      The bill almost ten times what a member of our church had with the exact same hospital same doctor same day just a couple hours difference. And we went to the free clinic..

      • Oh…more than fifty percent of our gross income goes out for healthcare insurance for just the wife because she had a minor stroke thirty years ago… 20 percent of the income left is taken for my expenses….and none of it is deductible….
        My seizure medication in the USA is 1250.00 a month the same medication in Canada is 250.00 but you can get generic for way under a hundred that isn’t available in the usa and we can only get that if we travel to canada and get it one month at a time.
        Our small community heads to southern texas because they can pick up their years supply of medication and spend the winter months and save money rather than buy it here. I needed a special surgery that canada and India had and my insurance company would send me brochures and offer to pay the full tab because it was cheaper..
        Doctors here pay several hundred a month per foot,equipment, wages,supplies etc. Where in a setting the cost is less. All expenses are set.
        Trust me I see both sides of this coin. Damned if you do damned if you don’t there has to be a common ground

      • LOOB; there IS another way, Samaritan Ministries, Liberty Health Share, and MediShare. I KNOW. I don’t have insurance. I got excellent care at a hospital in the USA. Samaritan Ministries paid 100%. 100%. 100%. Have you looked into it yet?

  20. This looks like the beginning of the year end correction. The market has been teasing us since 7/31/19 with a correction.

  21. And as a further comment GU let me remind you, that when you get older, like >20 from to-day, you’ll also will look at life more differently than you do to-day. IMO!

    People are no more than sheep — easily slaughtered, because they look up to it ;-( and history is prove that!

    Meanwhile, how do we make a buck? I failed to see any information that was of benefit to that effect. Sorry!

    • Bruno: Making a buck is up to you, not George. He provides the insight for you to form into a plan. There is no free lunch. Don’t be like the sheep who want everything handed to them on a platter. The sheep are better off spending the $40 on the lottery.

      • Sad — so many misunderstandings in our world. You are of course corect. However, I never intended to put any guilt on George.

        Btw. I use moving averages and standard deviations, for what it’s worth. Good luck!

  22. Your right George (was there ever a doubt) After a few months of analyzing Drudge Report I have come to the conclusion that Drudge will post almost anything out there without doing any due diligence. Hence in my opinion Drudge is part of the problem and I have removed the site from my daily reads. I want news that gives me the WWWWHY and can stand behind it. (That may be a lot to ask??)

    • Drudge sold out; they threatened him with taking down his site, so he opened his site up to drivel, CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, etc. That’s why you cannot find: Who, What, Why, When, Where, and How Come? But, if what happened to Alex Jones and MANY other sites is any indication, he will be gone someday soon, too! Or disrobed and taken down more notches. But in the meantime, all of the above fake news media get their money through CLICKS from his website!

  23. Sir,

    I daresay one could sample the moo d in the pasture today and think someone had gotten their goat souring the milk.

    Thankfully, upon fine reference, I am perusing and thumbing my way through a copy of Steven Pinker’s “The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence has Declined”. The author presents a thought-provoking march through millennia of history and concludes – SPOILER ALERT – that the world is becoming more peaceful and can continue along that trajectory.

    Although the book carries with it a burden-lightening ambiance, at just short of 700 pages not including the index, it could throw some serious shade on Tolstoy’s “War and Peace”. Certainly even those holders of an analog Pinker paper book copy dis-inclined to read cover to cover could serve a good cause and beat disbelievers into acceptance by wielding the weighty tome.

  24. I read your blog most mornings and get most of what Ure saying, now I come back in the evening to read the comments too. I enjoy all of them, including Marks. He reminds me of how I use to be before actually taking the time to find and read the source material.

    I turned the TV off in the ‘80s, radio too… and never missed it…. though I will admit to subscribing to HBO for the Game of Thrones series. Must of heard you on the radio while cruising Golden Gardens in the early 70s George, still in the area, just west across the “ pond”.

    Now if I could get a confident feeling about electricity I would venture into making a Light crown but so far the details elude me….

    Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and perspectives!

  25. All the emotionally charged hysterical lefty political rants I keep reading are so, well, disturbing. If only their families could get them professional help. It’s such a waste of potential, G_____.
