Attempted political coup now taking place in D.C. with effort to impeach Trump for fabricated “obstruction of justice”

Image result for white house storm

This is a high priority alert. The Washington Post, now exposed as a CIA propaganda front, and the New York Times (a fiction-pimping anti-American rag owned by a Mexican national) have tag-teamed their way to their desired finish line: The impeachment and indictment of President Donald J. Trump.

This has been accomplished through the publishing of a seemingly endless stream of utterly fabricated fake news stories, nearly all of which are based on “anonymous sources” that are probably little more than schizophrenic voices in the heads of the reporters writing the “news” in the first place.

The aim has been to accuse President Trump of every imaginable crime, from “leaking intel to the Russians” to “obstruction of justice.” Keep in mind that these same discredited media outlets gave Obama a pass when he laundered $1.7 billion in cash and delivered it to Iran on a military cargo plane.

They are the same fake news media that looked the other way when Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in a private meeting to pressure Lynch to back off any potential criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s long list of crimes.
They are the same anti-American media that said nothing when Hillary Clinton cheated during the presidential debates by receiving the debate questions in advance from CNN. (She also pre-sold her anticipated presidency by collecting tens of millions of dollars in “donations” and “speaking fees” from foreign interests.)
They are the same media that stood silent when former President Obama weaponized the IRS to suppress the speech of conservative non-profits. Similarly, nobody in the media seems to be alarmed at all that Obama abused the state surveillance apparatus to spy on his political opponents such as Rand Paul.

These are all serious crimes, serious abuses of power and treasonous acts carried out by Obama, a Democrat. Yet the left-wing media remains silent on every one of them. What’s obvious from all this is that, according to the left-wing media, Democrats can do no wrong and all their crimes are whitewashed by default (even the obvious murder of Seth Rich). Yet Republicans are instantly guilty of the worst crimes imaginable, even when they’ve done nothing wrong at all.

REAL crimes committed by Democrats are deliberately overlooked, in other words, while FAKE accusations against Republicans are hyped up until they’re made to look legitimate and damning, to the point where Democrats are all madly hyperventilating and claiming to be “triggered” by nearly everything.

It is against this background of wild disinformation, media lies and conspiratorial plotting that President Trump is now facing the most serious challenge of his administration: An aggressive attempt to remove him from office through impeachment and indictment over entirely fabricated, baseless accusations that are lacking any real facts.

Congressman Al Green just called for Trump’s impeachment on the House floor

Right on cue, Texas congressman Al Green (a Democrat from Houston, no surprise) just called for Donald Trump’s impeachment. As Zero Hedge reports:
For now it is unclear what Congressman Al Green’s reasoning is… apart from anonymously-sourced evidence-free reports from a clearly biased mainstream media perpetuating a narrative designed to ‘resist’. Apparently the argument is that Trump “obstructed justice”, although we hope Mr. Green has some evidence to back up his accusations.

Indeed, nearly every media accusation against Trump has been based on nothing but innuendo, misleading headlines, fake “anonymous sources” (a Washington Post favorite) or outright misrepresentations of hard facts. The New York Times and Washington Posthave deliberately published fake news, then whipped it all into a “media circle jerk” frenzy where the same false stories are repeated across the ‘net, all hyped up by Facebook’s selective oppression of liberty-oriented news so that left-wing media lies are more easily shared.
Google then tweaks its search engine algorithms to censor truth media while giving extra rankings to the lies of the left-wing media, making sure that all searches on political topics return mainstream media propaganda results rather than independent media stories that are actually far more truthful. The fix is in, in other words, and it’s a coordinated network involving the media, tech giants, deep state intelligence organizations and of course late night television which drives all the false narratives into the brains of young, gullible hipsters.

The goal of all this is the overthrow of the Republic and the final crushing of all voices of liberty

As should be obvious by now, the Democrats seek to run a totalitarian, fascist police state that they control. It will be called a “tolerant” society, of course, where anyone who disagrees with any left-wing narrative is censored off the ‘net, labeled a threat to humanity and imprisoned or executed. The Boston Herald is already calling for mass executions of people who disagree with California’s SB 277 vaccine mandate which allows the state government to force mass injections of toxic substances into human babies. Netflix has now memory-holed videos that teach the science of genetics, making sure that nobody remembers how gender is determined by XX or XY chromosomes, not a “momentary feeling” of a gender-confused individual. Google eliminated the entire NaturalNews.com website from its index for a six-day period, attempting to memory hole 140,000+ independent news articles, and Facebook is now blocking nearly all sharing of independent media in order to make sure that only the fake news narratives of the delusional Left can be shared on its twisted social media platform (which serves as little more than a front for the NSA to collect intelligence on the citizenry).

The real goal in all this — which is also being pursued by the evil globalist Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com and owner of the fake news Washington Post — is the overthrow of the Republic. This will be followed, of course, by a massive false flag school shooting, a call for the complete disarmament of the U.S. citizenry, and a final rollout of the totalitarian police state run by Leftists. All liberty-oriented websites will be de-indexed from Google, banned from Facebook sharing, blocked by email ISPs and possibly even shut down at the domain level through government seizures of domain names. All voices of liberty will be silenced, and only obedient conformity will be tolerated in the name of “tolerance.”

We are right now on the very precipice of this unfolding before our very eyes in the days ahead. An effort is under way to impeach President Trump or declare him mentally unfit. Rumors are swirling that his own cabinet is prepared to say he suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia and is therefore “unfit for command” and must be replaced. An actual political coup is forming up at this very moment, and the anti-American forces within the media and the bureaucracy are planning to move swiftly to out-pace public awareness or dissent against the coup that’s taking place.

Why a coup against Trump will likely set off a civil war and a catastrophic market collapse

I plan to discuss this is more detail in a subsequent article, but according to my analysis, a coup against President Trump is likely to be the catalyst for the outbreak of civil war as well as a catastrophic market crash. In that civil war, I predict a strong possibility that the headquarters of Google, Facebook, Twitter and other tech gatekeepers will be overrun by pro-America forces in order to halt their collusion with fascist left-wing traitors who are trying to overthrow the Republic.

We should expect to see similar strategic occupation efforts targeting the Washington Post and the New York Times, which is where all the anti-American propaganda originates, run by nefarious globalists who despise liberty and Trump. I would not be surprised at all to see all the major media centers of America seized and forced to stop running their anti-American, anti-liberty, fascist propaganda that has deliberately sought to overthrow the duly elected President of these United States.

On the streets, the mass protests will of course spill out across every U.S. city, where brainwashed, delusional left-wing activists will carry out mass violence against innocent white people, looting white neighborhoods and torching white-owned businesses. This mass violence will be uncontrolled and unstoppable by local police, who will be vastly outnumbered. At some point, watch for local citizens who own firearms to start shooting back in their own defense, and from there it all escalates into open warfare on the streets of America. (Hint: Gun owners who can accurately shoot rifles will out-range the left-wing criminals who only know how to use handguns.)

If you are not yet prepared for the outbreak of mass violence across America, your time is running short. You will obviously need a means of self-defense, and you will need plenty of organic survival food, a non-electric water filter, emergency first aid items and emergency communications gear. If you don’t yet own a firearm for your protection, find recommended choices for self-defense at Guns.news and Gear.news. You will need plenty of hollow point ammo, which you can find at MidwayUSA.com or AmmoToGo.com. My personal recommendation is to acquire a Glock 19 as your starting pistol, and get a POF-USA.com rifle if it’s legal to own one in your area. (If it’s not legal to own a rifle, you are living in the wrong state. Time to move…)

Prepare to defend your property, your community and perhaps even your country. It really is coming down to an outbreak of civil war across America, and the insane, fascist Left will stop at nothing to stomp out all voices of liberty and install their own totalitarian system of government under which no dissent is allowed at all. Leftism is fascism, remember. If you do not agree with all their insane, delusional narratives about climate change, transgenderism, government spending or socialized health care, then you will be silenced and punished. The book burnings have literally begun; the Left’s calls for the mass killings of the voices of liberty are on the rise, and the Left has become a mindless mass of dangerous zombies who are mentally ill (and extremely violent). This will obviously not end peacefully.

PRIORITY: How to stay informed as the attempted coup and civil war unfolds

  • STOP using Google as your search engine. Start using GoodGopher.com instead.
  • STOP using Google News to find out what’s happening. Use Censored.newsinstead.
  • STOP using Facebook, period. Use GAB.ai instead.
  • STOP buying from Amazon.com. Every purchase funds the same owner as the Washington Post, which is a traitorous, fake news propaganda front that’s actively trying to overthrow the Republic.
  • NEVER believe what you get from NPR, NYT, CNN, WashPost or other anti-American, left-wing media outlets. They are all deliberately fabricating fake news that’s intended to overthrow the Republic and crush all voices of liberty and reason.
  • Each day, go directly to NaturalNews.com, NewsTarget.com, Trump.news or other websites to find out what’s happening. Natural News is now updated every morning and evening, so check it at least twice a day.

Compelling Evidence of the Incursions of Giants, Their Extraordinary Technology, and IMMINENT RETURN Part # 7

By Thomas R. Horn
Before the Smithsonian, Something Legendary This Way Came
It was a beautiful October afternoon. The midday sun was just warm enough to keep a chill at bay, while still brisk enough to make the arduous hike bearable. We descended slowly, carefully, between the cliff rock using several ladders that alternated with precariously narrow and steep stone paths. After quite some time on this laborious trail, the incline leveled out some, and we rounded the final corner of the trail.
Simultaneously, the silence was broken by the awestruck sounds, murmurings, and even gasps of the crew members who had until now only imagined what this moment would be like.
The cliff dwelling before us, etched into the side of a stone mountain, hovered there, suspended between the world above and that below, almost boasting itself the harbinger of secrets of ancient ones whose stories have become the very mysteries that whisper within the walls of its prehistoric structure. Its meticulous stone construction, massive size of more than 150 rooms and more than twenty kivas, and distance from either place of contact—whether overhead or beneath—with the outside world, stood as a testament to the mysterious ancestral ones who called this place home.
Camera men began to set up their equipment, while Steve Quayle and I (Tom) began talking about where we would prefer to stand during the interview and what topics would be discussed at this particular location. Eventually, we were ready to begin filming, and we started talking about the ancient architects of the edifice. Very soon, all in the group were listening to the discussion about ancient violence in the Anasazi era.
All seemed well, until I looked over at one of our guides, who was growing more and more agitated with each word of the conversation he heard. The discussion was that of the cliff dwellings being defensive locations, built by people trying to avoid violence or conflict from their surroundings. Later, Allie, a SkyWatch TV research assistant and private detective, said she saw him flinch and say, “They can’t talk about these things! These were peaceable people. This isn’t Sand Canyon! Those things didn’t happen here!” Allie responded very carefully so as not to sound argumentative, “Well, there is a lot of evidence of this type of activity all around the Four Corners. If there weren’t a lot of violence in that day, why would they build into the side of a cliff? Why not build on the ground?”
“That’s easy,” the guide quipped. “It’s convenient. They have easy access to water. They collect the water from a spring inside the cliff” (he said, contradicting a statement our other guide had made on the way down the trail, wherein he had told us that the nearest water was a three-mile hike away, down the side of the cliff and to a spring below).
Later, Allie wrote in her journal about the trip:
I was confused by his statement. “So you’re not denying the violence at Sand Canyon and other similar places in the four corners area? Because in many reports I have read about archaeological digs in this region, those who excavate clearly state a “sudden, violent” event took place, causing people to abandon their homes quickly. And if they did migrate instead of flee, why not take their food items and other necessities with them?”
He answered me, “It’s true that there was violence at many other places, but not here. These people were peaceful people. I have come to love these people working here at the park. They didn’t take all of their items because they had no load-bearing animals.”
“Then why did they leave?”
He smiled at me. It was a strange smile. “I’m going to give you my ‘Valley Girl’ explanation,” he said, pressing his index and middle finger into my shoulder firmly, and holding them there.
“You live an agrarian lifestyle,” he said, and his fingers pressed into my flesh farther.
“There has been a drought.” His fingers pressed harder.
“Wildlife is becoming scarcer.” Harder.
“Now other tribes migrate into the area and the resources are shared between more people.” Harder still. It was beginning to hurt a little.
“Due to this new competition with other incoming peoples, other resources of the area are also becoming threatened.” His fingers pressed even farther into me, causing me to take a step back. He smiled triumphantly.
“See, you moved! And so did they!”
I smiled and allowed the conversation to drop. By now, the film crew had the footage that they needed, and we had other places to be. We thanked our guides and after a lengthy climb back to the top, gear was loaded into vehicles and we departed.
But I left that conversation with renewed questions.
Why did they leave? Where did they go? What was the real reason they left so many essential items behind when they departed? Why did this man feel it was perfectly ok to acknowledge violence at other locations but not here?
And…did he just call me a Valley Girl?
***
The more I reflected on this conversation, I had a growing curiosity about his protectiveness toward the Anasazi of this particular cave dwelling. I was inclined to draw the conclusion that there is more known by some people than they are willing to admit about this matter. After all, a person who acts warily or seeks protection is not automatically presumed a violent person. Meaning, to live in a cliff dwelling or other defensive structure is not a sign that a person is not, as the guide had said, “a peaceful people.” In my mind, it was the contrary. People living up and away from the surface of the earth, trying to avoid conflict or keep to themselves, would seem as though they were following a passive trend, trying to avoid trouble. So why did he get so protective when it was suggested that these were defensive locations? How was that related, at all, to the inhabitants’ inclination toward peace? He had become so assertive, it was as if he were shielding these people’s very integrity. Why?
That is, unless he was…
HORSESHOE CANYON, UTAH: The Great Gallery containing pictographs that are over 6,000 years old and stand 8-feet-high. The tall, hollow-eyed figures here are known as the Holy Ghost Panel. Scientists still aren’t sure what these strange looking giants depict.
A thought struck me. What were they into at some of these other locations that were proven to have been abandoned during a violent event? What were they doing at any of these other locations where people were brutally murdered, their dead left unburied, bones scattered for hundreds of feet while those living merely disappeared, leaving food items and other necessities behind when they fled? It stood to reason that if we could somehow believe that these people had done something to set these events into motion, then we could believe that other groups, who would never have “stooped so low” as to commit similar acts, would have migrated on, into the sunset, to enjoy a happily ever after, violence free.
It’s human nature to want to view a heinous act that has been committed toward someone else as a result of a triggering action, event, or association. This way, by process of elimination we can believe that we are safe. For example, a burglary that is committed at random leaves everyone within the neighborhood feeling vulnerable, until evidence shows that the crime was committed by an angry relative, former friend, or ex business partner who harbored bad feelings toward the victim of the crime. Usually at that point, everyone breathes a little easier, knowing that because they are not part of that association, their home is safe.
I thought about applying the same psychology to the romanticized, protective way that many of the people we encountered at the Four Corners viewed the ancient inhabitants of their own location. All told a similar story: The Anasazi were a peaceful, happy, hunter-gatherer, basket-weaving, agrarian people who minded their own business and lived out their lives in the cliff dwellings near the four corners, until drought, lack of resources, incoming competing tribes, and possible disease caused them to migrate peacefully out of the area. Many said they went to Chaco Canyon, and from there just “disappeared.”
And it seemed that to many of the guides we spoke with, it was perfectly permissible to claim there was violence at another location, but not the one at which they were stationed. Each seemed to have, understandably, bonded with the previous inhabitants of their own site. It was even more exaggerated when the person spoken to was a claimed descendant of the Anasazi; which, consequently, turned out to be a coveted position which was rivaled by multiple Native American tribes. It was similar to a protective parent who was willing to admit that all other children were capable of naughty behavior, but not their own.
Not my child, they would never do that.
Not my ancestors, they would never do that.
But do what? What incited such violence, fear, and survival instinct that would cause a seemingly peaceable people to carve homes out of a cliff in midair, just to leave them—and other necessary possessions—behind, and vanish?
Legends
Sometimes the first, best clue to learning what really happened is to follow the legend backward. Since the version of the Anasazi story we had heard most frequently was that they started out in the cliff dwellings, went to Chaco Canyon from there, and then migrated on to other unknown locations, I decided to start at Chaco. It’s is a fascinating place, and certainly one of many mysteries.
I soon found plenty of evidence supporting the idea that the legend certainly wasbackward. It would appear that it actually all started at Chaco Canyon and fled to places like Mesa Verde from there. At least for the American Southwest, that is. In Mexico and Mesoamerica, the plot runs much, much deeper, a concept that we will touch on a bit in the next chapter. Although evidence of human habitation in what is now the Four Corners area dates back as far as 2900 B.C., the stone structures that have become the iconic symbol for Chaco’s Anasazi era were not erected until approximately A.D. 850.[i]
But before venturing much farther into Chaco history, let’s take a moment to view a couple of other pertinent legends that came up briefly when Steve and I were on The Hagmann Report recently and I spoke about how Ritual Cannibalism modifies DNA (now a scientific fact) that changes the individual into a ‘fit extension’ for Rephaim (dead Nephilim) resurrection (at least that was the ancient belief). This raised a firestorm of emails and interest, and during the show I used one of the many examples in the new CLOUDEATERS book involving the Wendigo (sometimes spelled Windigo), or “the evil spirit that devours mankind.”[ii] This name is also associated with the word “cannibal.” While some of this lore originates closer to Canada, there are legends that drift as far south as the Navajo region and even toward the American Midwest. According to legend, these are evils creatures, sometimes even giants of as much as fifteen feet in height, who at one time were human beings. But once a person would turn to cannibalism, even under emergency or starvation circumstances, they “changed” forever. They would be overcome with evil spirits who would possess them and permanently transform them into an evil being. In some instances, the Windigo and Wendigo are different; one is a flesh-and-blood human who is transformed, and in some cases, the other is said to be the evil spirit awaiting a human he can possess and influence to commit cannibalism, sending him on an insatiable, flesh-eating spree. There are different measures of how transformed, or how evil, a person would become, depending on the region or people carrying the story, but the idea of the Wendigo, or Windigo, remains nearly the same throughout: Once a person has tasted human flesh, he or she is overwrought by evil, and passes a point of no return.
Another is the legend of the chindi, or “ghosts.” According to Native American legend, chindi was a total accumulation of all the sins committed by a person over the span of his or her lifetime. A chindi would be released from the individual at the moment of death. It was determined whether a chindi was good or bad by the direction that it rotated once it became a dust devil. If a chindi, particularly an evil one, was released inside a building, often the structure would be abandoned and burned down to relieve the inhabitants of the evil done to them by the chindi. In some cases, a medicine man could even summon or attach a chindi to an individual or group of individuals as a form of curse or punishment.[iii] According to author Douglas Preston, many Anasazi ruins are avoided by natives, under the assumption that they are filled with chindi.[iv] Many of the ruins we will be discussing are avoided, many claiming that chindi occupy them.
Along the lines of legend are also localized theatricals. Harvard graduate, archaeologist, anthropologist and zoologist Jesse W. Fewkes spent several years studying the Native American culture, ruins, and artifacts. At one point, he even actually moved his headquarters to the Hopi region in Arizona and spent time with them, observing and noting each of their rituals and festivals over the course of all their seasons, including those that alternated every other year. Throughout this period of time, Fewkes witnessed myriad interesting, theatrical ceremonies, dances, and performances placing serpents and snakes at a great place of honor. Particularly interesting is the excerpt below:
The effigies represent the Great Serpent, a supernatural personage of importance in all their legends. This being is associated with the Hopi version of the flood, for it is said that in ancient times, while the ancestors of certain clans lived in the far south, at a place called Palatkwabi, this monster on one occasion rose through the middle of the pueblo plaza to the zenith, drawing after him a great flood, which submerged the land and obliged the Hopi to migrate, and to seek refuge in the north, their present home. At this time, which was long ago in their annals, the Serpent rose to the zenith and, calling out from the clouds, demanded the sacrifice of a boy and girl. To this demand the Hopi acceded with children of their chiefs, whom the monster took and sank back into the earth, leaving a black rock to mark the place of sacrifice.
When the two serpents’ effigies automatically rise from the two vases throwing back the semicircular flaps with rain-cloud symbols, it represents the event recorded in legends—the Hopi version of a flood.
The snake effigies knocking over the miniature field of corn symbolize floods, possibly wind, which the Great Serpent brings.
The effigies of the monsters emerge through orifices closed by disks, upon which sun symbols are depicted to show how floods which destroy the fields come from the sky, the realm of the sun.
The masked men, called “mudheads,” are ancients which have come to have superhuman powers in causing corn to grow and mature. They struggle with the monsters who would destroy the farms of man. The acts in which they appear represent in a symbolic way the contest of early man with supernatural powers which set at naught the labors of the agriculturist.”[v]
The Beginning of the End
Returning our attention to Chaco Canyon, it would also appear that the original Anasazi who inhabited the Chaco area in the beginning were probably indeed those idealized by their claimed descendants; the “peaceful, happy, hunter-gatherer, basket-weaving, agrarian people” mentioned above. These people, according to the surmising of anthropologist Christy Turner II in his work Man Corn: Cannibalism and Violence in the Prehistoric American Southwest, had abundant resources at the time they had settled at Chaco. They had a fairly large population (possibly as many as thirty thousand at its peak) with a small internal government system (seemingly all they had needed up to this point in time), leaving them sitting ducks for Mesoamerican invasion and influence.
In A.D. 650, when Teotihuacan, the pre-Aztec city that had ruled most of central Mexico, collapsed, Turner theorizes that displaced warrior-cultists, priests, and others of all trades and economic stature and that they may have begun to migrate north, coming into the area that is now the American Southwest by as early as A.D. 800.
If one is operating by Turner’s theory, then Mesoamerican occupants would have been nearby when Chaco was being constructed, and would have made contact within the Chaco Anasazi region at or around A.D. 900. It stands to reason that they may have been a little earlier than that, being that much of Chaco’s construction—the “T” shaped doors, for example—reflects Mesoamerican design. They would have approached the Anasazi to trade items such as maize, beans, corn, cacao, copper items, ceramics, rare stones, jewelry, carved seashell items, tools, live goods such as birds whose feathers were used for rituals, and possibly even slaves. As trade became more regular within this region, so did the Mesoamerican impact at Chaco Canyon.

Is Puerto Rico’s Economic Collapse A Ploy By Liberals To Permanently Shift The Balance Of Power In Congress?



Next month, citizens of Puerto Rico are going to vote on statehood, and the absolutely devastating economic collapse that is gripping the island could be enough to push pro-statehood forces over the edge to victory.  Of course Congress has the final say on whether Puerto Rico becomes a state or not, but it is going to be very difficult to deny Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents statehood if they strongly insist that they want it.  Needless to say, if Puerto Rico becomes the 51st U.S. state that would greatly benefit the Democrats, because the population of Puerto Rico is very liberal.
Puerto Rico does not get to vote in presidential elections, but they do help select the nominees for both parties.  In 2016, 58,764 votes were cast in the Democratic caucuses held in Puerto Rico, and only 36,660 votes were cast in the Republican primary.  As a state, it is doubtful whether Puerto Rico would send any Republican lawmakers to Washington for decades to come.
So if Puerto Rico becomes a state, the Democrats would add two new senators and probably four or five representatives.
Puerto Rico would be the 30th largest state in the entire country, and so it would instantly have more political power than 21 other U.S. states.
This upcoming vote on June 11th is going to be extremely important, and pro-statehood forces are working very hard to get a positive result.  The following info about the referendum in June comes from Wikipedia
The fifth referendum will be held on June 11, 2017 and will offer two options: “Statehood” and “Independence/Free Association.” It will be the first referendum not to offer the choice of “Commonwealth.” Newly-elected Governor Ricardo Rossell√≥ is strongly in favor of statehood for Puerto Rico to help develop the economy and help to “solve our 500-year-old colonial dilemma … Colonialism is not an option …. It’s a civil rights issue … 3.5 million citizens seeking an absolute democracy,” he told the news media.[30] Benefits of statehood include an additional $10 billion per year in federal funds, the right to vote in presidential elections, higher Social Security and Medicare benefits, and a right for its government agencies and municipalities to file for bankruptcy. The latter is currently prohibited.[31]
At approximately the same time as the referendum, Puerto Rico’s legislators are also expected to vote on a bill that would allow the Governor to draft a state constitution and hold elections to choose senators and representatives to the federal Congress.[31]
Over the past decade, Puerto Rico has been suffering through a nightmarish economic recession that never seems to end.  The island was recently forced to declare the equivalent of bankruptcy because it is facing $123 billion in debt and pension obligations.  At this moment 46 percent of the residents of Puerto Rico are living below the poverty line, the unemployment rate is 11 percent, and authorities just announced that another 179 public schools will be closing down.
It has been argued that the Obama administration could have done much more to alleviate the economic problems in Puerto Rico but that it purposely chose not to do so.
Why?
Well, the worse economic conditions get in Puerto Rico, the better it is for pro-statehood forces.  Puerto Ricans are being told that becoming a state is the key to Puerto Rico’s long-term economic future, and at this point many are willing to do just about anything to get the economic suffering to end.  The following is a short excerpt from a New York Times article entitled “Amid Puerto Rico’s Fiscal Ruins, a New Push for Statehood“…
A vigorous push for statehood was a central campaign promise of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, 38, who was inaugurated in January. Next month, he will ask residents to vote, in a nonbinding referendum, for statehood as part of a long-term fix for a commonwealth facing a period of severe austerity that is likely to include shuttered public schools, frozen salaries, slashed pensions and crimped investments in public health. The island remains in the grip of a recession that has lingered for much of the past decade.
Could it be possible that this is what liberals have wanted all along?
Could it be possible that Obama and his minions saw Puerto Rico as a chess piece that could be used to permanently shift the balance of power in Congress?
Of course if Puerto Rico becomes a state that would have implications for presidential elections as well.
In the end, it will be Congress that decides what the fate of Puerto Rico will be, but if the people of Puerto Rico truly want to become the 51st U.S. state it is going to be really hard to deny them that opportunity indefinitely.
Last year at their national conventions, the Democrats and the Republicans both took the position that the citizens of Puerto Rico should be able to make this decision for themselves.  But once faced with a final decision, it is inevitable that many Republican members of Congress would be opposed to statehood.
Personally, I believe that either independence or “free association” would be much better for Puerto Rico, and let us hope that the people of Puerto Rico choose that direction.
But when people are really hurting, they will often grasp any sort of olive branch that is being offered to them, and right now the progressives are really pushing statehood.
Of course for strategists on the left, the goal is not to help the suffering people of Puerto Rico.
Rather, the endgame is complete domination of the U.S. political system by any means necessary.

Retired Green Beret Warns A Successful Derailment Of Trump's Efforts Is Well Under Way; War Is Inevitable




In previous articles, I mentioned the importance of the midterm elections, and how (to run the country effectively and to be reelected) the President needs success within his first six months in office.  Although he is more than willing to make changes and has demonstrated his good intentions, the battle with the ensconced Marxists labeling themselves as either “progressives” or “centrists” is being lost.  Why is it being lost?  It is because these prior Obama appointees in the Circuit courts and the Supreme Court, along with the innumerable holdovers within the administration’s machinery effectively amount to a “fifth column,” bent on sabotaging the President’s efforts.
The successful derailment is well under way.  As I wrote in other articles, all that is needed for the Democrats to take the Senate and the House of Representatives in the upcoming Midterm elections is for the President to not make visible and productive changes within the first six months of his term.  The stultified public will perceiveit as a failure, and with the RINO (Republicans In Name Only) Republican party to help with a “shove” here and there, the President will fall right into the pool.
The planned border fence will not be built, the repeal of Obamacare will not take place, the flood of illegals will neither be stopped or reversed, and financial measures to stimulate the domestic economy are being implemented at glacial speed.  All the President’s executive orders are being struck down by the Obama-appointed judges in the courts.  There is not much time remaining before the Midterm congressional elections. We are a year out, and even before the campaigning has begun, it appears it will be up for grabs.
Obamacare is the best example of what has been outlined.  Aetna recently bowed out and pulled out of the machinery as far as private insurance companies run.  They stated that the arena was “untenable” and that the firm could no longer underwrite with the budgetary shortfalls and the nebulosity that lacked a demarcation of where government responsibility was to pick up what the company did not underwrite.  From an economic perspective, everyone with a brain knew that Obamacare would not function properly and would be a financial and administrative disaster.
That is why Obamacare is a success: it was meant to collapse the system and the insurance companies, forcing into existence a single-payer system and a government “exchange” that intruded on the lives of every citizen…pure “Cloward and Piven” at its finest.
The Republican Party is responsible for the continuance of Obamacare.  Nobody is focusing upon this fact.  Right now, everyone is focused upon Comey and a potential tie-in with Flynn and any connection to Russia regarding pre-election campaign communiques between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Russian leadership.  Obamacare is all but forgotten.
With the Republicans in control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, at this point, the bill to repeal Obamacare should have already passed both houses of Congress and been on the President’s desk to sign: this was not done, and the Republican Party is to blame.
If the President is unable to make a change while he has both houses of Congress under Republican control, what will happen after the Midterm election changes the complexion of Congress and makes it Democrat?  How will he be reelected, and if so, to what end?  He waited too long to fire Comey…a name that will torment us in the news even more than that of Natalie Holloway…and now it is turning around to bite him.  What is the solution?
War.  War is the means an administration uses to sway public opinion and garner the Congress and the other nabobs into lockstep under the guise/choice of “you’re either patriotic or unpatriotic,” forced upon all of them in the court of public opinion and on the media’s stage.  War is supported by the Congress, who is bought by the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) and the oligarchy and their army of lobbyists.
The administration is not accomplishing anything effectively, but a war can “rescue” it from its difficulties and divert the public’s attention.  There are several theaters that can easily metastasize into a full-blown conflict and then draw in other nations for an all-out war.  To catalyze such actions would be a simple feat for any administration with the resources of the United States backing it.  The question remains to be answered whether the administration will take such a step to save itself.
History proves out a high probability that an administration will do such
Carter with Desert One (the failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt),

Reagan with Grenada, Panama

Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain with the Falkland Islands,

Bush Sr. with Iraq (I),

Clinton with the bombing of Serbia and the war in Bosnia,

and Bush Jr. with Iraq (II), Afghanistan
Will this administration take similar measures in any of the “powder keg” theaters of Ukraine, North Korea, or Syria?  The question remains to be answered, and the probability is high that the answer will be “yes.”
