Q IS A DEEP STATE SHILL 8-23-2018

I realize people want to believe the shill known as Q. I realize his disinformation plays to what they want to think is going on. Unfortunately, Q is diverting our attention away from what is really going on, and lulling us with fantasies.

The acid test for Q is simple. It has been nearly two years since Trump was elected, and nearly 18 months since he took power. We have had Sessions in place for 18 months also. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE ONLY CRITERIA YOU CAN USE TO DEFINE RESTORING THE RULE OF LAW IS GRAND JURIES BEING CONVENED, INDICTMENTS ISSUED, TRIALS HELD AND WRONGDOERS BEING SENTENCED. Gang, NONE OF THAT HAS HAPPENED. THE PRO Q PEOPLE CAN’T POINT TO A SINGLE CASE WHERE ANYBODY INVOLVED IN THE MULTIPLE SCANDALS HAS FACED ANY LEGAL SANCTION AT ALL.

Sorry, but Q is Deep State BS. I will also say I am SICK of Trump whining about Sessions and then not firing him. In a little over 60 days we are going to find out how effective Soros and the Democrats are in stealing the election. My view is they can do, mostly because Trump has been too stupid to deal with Soros, or clean out the thousands of Obamabots, and federal judges hamstringing him.

Embrace the collapse. Realize that America must be flushed down the toilet before it can possibly return to any level of sanity. After all the Pakistan IT guy did, he gets no sanction, and people have the cajones to say Trump and Sessions are draining the swamp.

No lock her, or anybody, up.

No border wall.

No swamp drained.

An additional one trillion and more in debt.

And once the House flips, Soros will make sure things are locked down tight.

Yes, the so called Q is a Deep State psychological disinformation campaign designed to lull people to sleep and divert them from taking direct action. For example, Q has been spreading drivel about child abuse in pizza parlors etc, while completely ignoring the multiple number of actual child abuse cases, well over 2000 by now. It was Q who gave us the whole Weiner computer disinformation campaign. Remember all the NYPD officers who were going to release Weiner’s data on hundreds of child abuse cases, involving hundreds of senior level government officials, law enforcement, church and business leaders. We got none of that, but what we got was Pizzagate.

The scum Q represents understand the vaccine policy of releasing some credible information, hidden with the vast amounts of BS.

Q is located in the basement of the NSA, CIA, or FBI. His, or her, job is to “manage’ the release of damaging information. Another example is how Q diverted the actual release of Horowitz’s IG report to neuter it. Trey Gowdy is another example of controlled opposition. The list includes Trey Gowdy, Chavetz, Issa among others. The modus operandi is to hold “hearings” that limit information release and confirm nobody will actually be sanctioned. We saw this with the Pakistani IT officer just today. I think the FACT that not one single government or Democratic party official has had a grand jury convened tells the tale. All the while the total failure of any type of criminal sanction has been going on, you have Q spewing his/her Deep State garbage. Everybody is going to be indicted, except they haven’t been.

Q is solely meant to distract and divert until the Marxists take control of the house in November. After that, Q will likely vanish into the ether.

OREGON GUN GRABBERS AND SANCTUARY STATE SNOWFLAKES FAIL 7-10-2018

In a rare victory for conservatives up here in the People’s Republic of Multnomah county, the Marxist, anti-gun fruitcakes have withdrawn their ballot measure that would have essentially banned nearly all semi-automatic weapons. The reason being the Marxist B%%^^^ Oregon AG, the uber Marxist Rosenstein, messed up the ballot title so badly the even more uber Marxist Oregon Supreme Court rejected it. The gun grabbers then had to regather the 88,000 voter signatures they needed, couldn’t do that, and just gave up. I’m sure they will be back, but they failed miserably. The link is here. Of course, this guy is a RINO, but that is the best we can do here in Oregon.

http://www.wweek.com/news/2018/06/28/secretary-of-state-dennis-richardson-says-gun-control-measures-might-have-made-ballot-with-his-reforms/

As a state representative six legislative sessions, Secretary of State Dennis Richardson (R-Central Point) was a strong supporter of gun rights.

That adds some interest to Richardson’s response today to the announcement by gun control supporters that backers of a gun control measure—initiative petition 43—are suspending efforts to make the November ballot.

“Whether I agree or not with a particular cause, I strongly believe Oregonians should have the right to petition their government without the deck stacked against them,” Richardson said in a statement. “I urge the Legislature to adopt the grassroots petition protections that I have consistently advocated.”

Richardson, a Republican, earlier proposed making it more difficult to tie up proposed initiatives with litigation and allowing single-signature petition sheets rather than multi-signature sheets. He backed off those proposals after a torrent of criticism and a lawsuit from Democratic groups.

The other bit of good news is the ballot measure to reverse Oregon’s Sanctuary, or let in all the filthy, disease ridden, criminal, illegal hordes, law has just qualified for the November election. The link is here.

CIVIL WAR TWO: RIOTS IN PORTLAND, OREGON 6-30-2018

For all intents and purposes, the USA is now in the early phases of Civil War Two. The Marxist, Soros funded, media supported, Antifa types are going full bore for a Marxist Revolution. I don’t see how anybody with an IQ above single digits can’t see the level of political violence is totally out of control. I’m talking about death threats to the family members of Federal officials, ie Baron Trump, the family of the FCC head, and the dumping of a dead animal on an official’s front porch. Maxine Walters is in a class all by herself. Finally, well you need to prepare for armed resistance, because you will be killing Antifa types soon enough, because they will be killing you even sooner. The physical violence now coming the left is the last place marker before Civil War Two breaks out, as in dead bodies. Perhaps I am more tuned to this given the ongoing political violence here in downtown Portland.

Here is the link to today’s riots in Downtown Portland, Oregon. The whore media is in fine form with its drivel reporting. It is a fact the antifa types always start the violence against the “right wing groups.” It is a fact that the castrated, political correct Portland Police do nothing when the Antifa types attack the “right wing,” protesters. It is a fact the PPD then arrests any “right wing” protester who defends himself from being attacked. It is Sieg Heil time here in Portland, and the true Nazis are the local police, the local politicians and the local Antifa FASCISTS who use violence as a political tool.

http://katu.com/news/local/dueling-protests-expected-in-downtown-portland-saturday-again

Portland Police declared an out-of-control protest in downtown Portland a riot Saturday, and ordered everyone to leave the area immediately.

Authorities deployed flash bangs and tear gas as dueling protesters threw fireworks, eggs and other objects at each other.

Police made several probable cause arrests at the riot and seized multiple weapons.

WATCH:

The “Freedom and Courage” rally hosted by the right-wing Patriot Prayer group and its well-known leader, Joey Gibson, gathered at Terry Schrunk Plaza before taking to the streets. The group was granted a permit for the march, but police canceled it once violence ensued.

A heavy presence of antifa (antifascist) protesters gathered in the area for a “Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer’s Violence Must End” rally. The protest, hosted by the Rose City Antifa, said “it is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all,” in reference to the far-right Patriot Prayer group.

For hours, the two groups mostly yelled at each other, but once the Patriot Prayer members mobilized the situation quickly spiraled into violence.

Joey Gibson, who is currently a U.S. Senate candidate for Washington, made a long speech to his group at Terry Schrunk Plaza before the march. Many Patriot Prayer members wore “Gibson for Senate” T-shirts while singing along to “We Will Rock You” by Queen at the rally.

Members of the Vancouver-based group arrived at Saturday’s event on school buses.

“Courage is the backbone to freedom,” reads the description on the ‘Freedom and Courage’ rally event page. “The nation is EXTREMELY angry about how Portland citizens treated Freedom Loving Americans who marched in the streets of this dangerous city.”

On June 3, the same two groups clashed in downtown Portland at — you guessed it —Terry Schrunk Plaza.

The early June event was labeled by Patriot Prayer as a kind of going away celebration for one of their leaders: Tusitala Toese, also known as “Tiny.”

Four people were arrested at that protest.

A heavy law enforcement presence infiltrated downtown Portland Saturday due to past threats and acts of violence between the two groups. Department of Homeland Security officers were also present at the plaza, as Terry Schrunk is federal property.

Micah Fletcher, the young man who survived a brutal stabbing on a Portland MAX train last year was spotted at Saturday’s antifa protest playing the drums for a brass band. Fletcher has outwardly decried the Patriot Prayer group, of which the stabbing suspect Jeremy Christian associated himself with at a rally one month before the deadly May 2017 incident.

The leaders of Patriot Prayer have said Christian had nothing to do with their organization, lambasting his actions.

After police ordered everyone out of the street Saturday, the Patriot Prayer group returned to Terry Schrunk Plaza, and the antifa group returned to Chapman Square.

Police shut down Chapman Square and Lownsdale Square a short time later, and the Federal Protective Service eventually shut down Terry Schrunk Plaza — forcing the Patriot Prayer event to shutdown.

JAIL TIME FOR CLINTON’S? IG REPORT TO BE RELEASED NEXT WEEK

If we are ever going to restore the rule of law in America, then the corrupt elite must be indicted, tried, convicted, and then serve time in jail. If that doesn’t happen, then the United States deserves what happens to it. Further, I am not optimistic that will happen under the current Deep State fascist oligarch system now ruling the USA. It is also a fact, as seen by AG Sessions “deal” with the Pakistani couple, we have a Deep State operative as AG, just like we have multiple Deep State operatives at all levels of the various Federal Agencies.

The Department of Justice Inspector General Horowitz is now getting ready to release his “investigation,” into how the DOJ, the FBI, and all their employees handled the Clinton E-mail investigation on June 14th. Given the dismal record of Sessions, Wray and the entire lot of them, I am not going to have high expectations here. It is clear to me the Deep State plan is to allow limited revelations of just how corrupt our elite truly is, as long as they aren’t held accountable, or ever do the famous “perp walk.” When Trump said during the 60 Minutes Interview with Leslie Stahl back in November of 2016, that the Clinton’s were “good people,” I knew then the game was rigged. Ergo, we will get an IG report that indicates gross felonies by the Clinton’s, and gross negligence by the FBI, and the DOJ in the investigation. After that, the fake news press will go to town, or we will have a major false flag attack, and everybody will walk. They will walk just like all the others have, from Lerner in the IRS, to Paige, and McCabe and all the rest. If that is what happens, then I wish Russia’s Putin, and China’s Li God speed when they defeat our military, invade us, and then start executing our elite in massive numbers. At any rate, the “rumor” is the IG report will be “hot.” If nobody does jail time, it will be just another farce. You may call me the doubting doomer. Until I see the perp walks, the Grand Jury indictments, the trials and the convictions this is nothing to me. Until then, let our enemies crush us for the vile and evil nation we have become. It is said the report will “criticize” former AG Lynch. Seriously, she has engaged in multiple felonies. The fix my be she gets spanked in public, and then takes her ill gotten gains and goes to Belize. Some justice that will be. We shall see what happens, but if all that happens to Lynch is she gets “criticized,” then the whole process was a farce from day one.

DOJ To Release Report On Clinton Email Probe On June 14 With Explosive Hearing To Follow

 

 

THE RATS ARE NERVOUS 4-16-2018

Before we had the feckless Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, we had the corrupt Lynch, and before that we had the totally corrupt Eric Holder. Holder was the one responsible for the infamous “Fast and Furious,” program that led to multiple deaths, including a Border Agent, as well as many Mexicans. As usual, Holder got a pass on that one, because liberal democrats always get a pass on corruption. I hold little chance that feckless AG Sessions will ever get off his rear end and do perp walks on any Democrat implicated in corruption, treason, pay to play for starters. Still, when you are dealing with liars, frauds, corrupt, sleazy, amoral opportunists, with a lust for power, money and fame, you can be completely certain they will turn on each other. The famous saying, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going,” is modified to, “When the going gets tough, the guilty start pointing fingers, and hold a press conference.” Despite Lying Ryan saying that Comey is a good guy, Comey has been revealed to be a liar, a fraud, an arrogant, self-indulgent fool with delusions of grandeur. The real problem with Comey is he really does think people take him seriously at this point. It was to be expected that Comey would throw former AG Lynch, “under the bus,” to protect himself. It is also not surprising that former AG Lynch would do the same. Of course, in Lynch we are dealing with a political creature of unmatched arrogance, ignorance, and a bad case of political deafness. Lynch actually met with the husband of the target of a criminal investigation, Hillary Clinton, privately, in a government plane, on an airport tarmac in Arizona. The level of brazen, in your face arrogance that took really is the finest example of chutzpah you can, or at least I can, imagine. Her statements about how Bill Clinton talked about their families is hysterical. At any rate, being an ignorant, arrogant, political schemer hasn’t impacted Lynch’s gutter fighting ability. She may be a rat, but she has fangs and knows how to use them.

The link below tells me that while our increasingly pathetic, incompetent and bought and paid for AG, Jeff Sessions, may never go after Comey, or any of the corrupt DOJ and FBI employees, they are now going after each other, tooth and nail, fang and claw. And yes, my blog readers, I find that prospect delicious!

Lynch Cracks, Turns on Comey in Remarkable Political Betrayal

Liberals are going to have to choose a side.

With former FBI Director James Comey riding a wave of publicity on the eve of the release of his new memoir, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch issued a statement this weekend that directly contradicts Comey’s version of some events surrounding the tumultuous 2016 presidential election.

His book hasn’t even been released yet, but Comey’s already being called a liar by one of the biggest names in Barack Obama’s administration.

According to published excerpts of Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty,” the former FBI director accuses Lynch of trying to get him to spin the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails by referring to it as a “matter” – an anodyne word if ever there was one – instead of the more accurate and ominous term, “investigation.”

In the book, Comey said he perceived the wording to be a directive from the Clinton playbook.

“The attorney general seemed to be directing me to align with the Clinton campaign strategy,” Comey wrote. “Her ‘just do it’ response to my question indicated that she had no legal or procedural justification for her request, at least not one grounded in our practices or traditions. Otherwise, I assume, she would have said so.”

In the portion of his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Sunday night, Comey elaborated.

“To be honest, it gave me a bad feeling,” Comey said of Lynch’s directive. “And maybe I should have pushed harder in the moment.”

But in her own statement released Sunday, in an obvious attempt to pre-empt Comey’s interview, Lynch hit back hard.

She began by defending her preference for using neutral terminology such as “matter” to describe the Clinton probe because of the Justice Department’s longstanding practice of declining to confirm or deny whether an individual is under investigation.

That might be hard to swallow, but Lynch is a lawyer, so it’s not surprising she can come up with an explanation for anything.

But it’s the final part of the statement that really hits home. Essentially, she called Comey a liar.

“I have known James Comey almost 30 years. Throughout his time as director we spoke regularly about some of the most sensitive issues in law enforcement and national security,” Lynch said. “If he had any concerns regarding the email investigation, classified or not, he had ample opportunities to raise them with me both privately and in meetings. He never did.”

It was a remarkable political betrayal, considering the two not only worked together to elect Clinton president, but knew each other for decades before that.

So it comes to this: Comey wrote that Lynch’s request was so unusual that it made him uncomfortable, that he questioned it, and was told to “just do it.”

Lynch, however, says the terminology was standard procedure and — more importantly — Comey never questioned it at all.

One of them is lying.

It could well be Lynch. She’s the one whose record will be forever tarnished by her tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton at an out-of-the-way part of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

But Comey has also shown himself to be less than honest. His nationally televised attempt to exonerate Clinton in July — an attempt we now know was influenced by FBI bias against then-Republican candidate Donald Trump — tried to fix an American presidential election.

Conservatives and Republican critics of the Obama administration have no problem being skeptical of either.

But liberals are going to have to choose sides. And it could get very ugly.

TRUMP’S BORDER EMERGENCY 4-3-2018

What is now happening on the US Southern Border with Mexico is nothing less than an invasion. I posted this on April 1st over at Timebomb.com. It looks like somebody in Trump’s administration has been reading my posts. At any rate, Trump has apparently been convinced he needs to get off his New York City punk butt and actually do something on the border.

The post is below.

TRUMP’S BORDER EMERGENCY

I’m going to throw something out here. Trump signed the “budget bill from Lying Ryan and Mitch the Bitch in order to get the military funding. This funding has been mentioned in the context of using it to “build the wall.” Obviously, Trump got played by Lying Ryan, Mitch the Bitch, the Marxist Democrats, but maybe Trump was moving on a deeper level than I first thought. Trump gets intelligence briefings daily. Let’s say that Trump is told of the HAMAS Easter Sunday “storm Israel’s border,” march. Further, Trump is then told that there are “hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands,” of Central Americans who are headed to the USA, where they will “storm our border.”

Gang, CONTEXT IS EVERYTHING. Now, I said that if Trump uses any military money, or violates any of the no concrete wall, or no more than 33 miles of it, he will be impeached. I absolutely think that would happen, UNLESS TRUMP CAN GIVE A CREDIBLE REASON TO USE MILITARY MONEY TO BUILD THE WALL. And here is what I think Trump saw, or maybe somebody in his administration. When you talk about spending military money to build the wall, YOU MUST HAVE A BORDER EMERGENCY. And guess what, a horde of Central Americans storming your southern border is a border emergency; one that will require Trump to declare it is, and to allocate MILITARY RESOURCES TO DEAL WITH IT. MILITARY RESOURCES BEING MONEY TO BUILD THE WALL, AND TROOPS, EITHER ACTIVE DUTY, FORT HOOD ANYBODY, OR NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS FROM TEXAS, NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA, OR CALIFORNIA.

When the alternative, or even the fake news media, starts to show hordes of illegals, women and children, it won’t matter, causing total chaos on our border, well Trump can then use that to get his border emergency; after that, he will get his CONCRETE WALL FOR HUNDREDS OF MILES, 1,000 MILES I HEARD.

Again, there are some very interesting scenarios out of this. For one thing, it is likely that California’s Governor Jerry Brown will refuse any Federal order to deploy the California National Guard to the border. Further, Governor Brown may invited the hordes of illegals into California.

Yep, this is the only Trump play that makes sense to me now. I couldn’t figure out why he signed that loser of a budget bill, other than the military money. And now, if my gut is correct, Trump gets it all, a horde of illegals storming the border, a declaration of a border emergency, and the deployment of military money, troops, supplies etc to deal with it.

Lying Ryan, Mitch the Bitch, Schumer and the walking mummy Pelosi get outplayed. Soros, who s behind the horde of illegals now getting ready to storm our southern border, also gets outplayed by Trump, for the umpteenth time.

So, anybody think Doomer Doug has gone off the deep end with this scenario?

TRUMP SIGNS BUDGET BILL AND SELLS US ALL OUT 3-23-2018

The more I read about this “budget bill,” the clearer the magnitude of the disaster Trump has suffered becomes clearer. It is a decisive defeat for Trump. It shatters any relationship he had with his deplorable base. It gives the Marxist Democrats VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING THEY WANTED, EXCEPT FOR A FINAL RESOLUTION OF THE DACA DREAMERS.

I mean the list is endless. It has NO MONEY FOR THE BORDER WALL. It funds planned parenthood. It doubles H-1 visas. The list just goes on and on and on.

Trump is finished. He is now in exactly the same situation that Bush senior was in when he flip flopped on his “Read my lips: no new taxes.” Bush senior refused to honor that statement and pledge, and he paid the price by losing to Clinton.

I think the RINOS decided they needed to lose both the House and the Senate in November in order to protect the uniparty. Make no mistake: THIS IS A DECISIVE WIN FOR THE DEEP STATE, THE UNIPARTY, THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA, THE MARXIST DEMOCRATS AND THE SNOWFLAKES.

TRUMP WILL NOW BE HOUNDED BY SEX ABUSE CLAIMS. He will eventually be impeached, once the Democrats take control of the house and senate. Trump is finished, since he has no support base left. The time between now and November will be filled with an administration in total chaos, a feckless POTUS, and no ability to get anything done. And it is all because Trump let Lying Ryan, Mitch the Bitch, Pelosi and Schumer hang him out to dry. Exactly why would Trump’s enemies back off now, since they have him by his genitalia.

The Marxists are going to win in November. They are going to impeach Trump, and then they are going to impose a Marxist dictatorship, no holds barred, and nothing held back, starting in January of 2019.

Trump screwed us, and that is all there is to it. I suggest we all use the time left in 2018 to make whatever preparations for dealing with the Marxist dictatorship that will start in 2019. The Marxists got burned when Hellary the Shrew crashed and burned. They will not forgive. They will not forget. And they will do whatever it takes to make sure somebody like Trump can never, ever, come to power again. You can write that in blood, our blood.

For more details on just how bad the budget bill Trump signed is here is the link.

http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/03/ryan-pelosi-uniparty-easily-passes-record-1-3-trillion-omnibus-that-spits-in-face-of-gop-voters/

The Paul Ryan-Nancy Pelosi Uniparty easily passed the record $1.3 trillion omnibus bill on Thursday.

The final vote was 256 to 167.

The bill funds all of the Democrat pet projects and spends less than .1% on the border security barriers and no wall.

Conservative Mark Meadows and the Freedom Caucus voted against the outrageous Republican Omnibus.

Meadows pointed out the giant flaws of the plan:
– Record spending levels
– No wall/border security
– Obamacare intact
– Funds Planned Parenthood
– Sanctuary Cities funded
– Barely 24 hours to read a 2,300 page bill

Rep. Meadows then encouraged President Trump to veto the bill.

This will likely be the end of the GOP majorities.
You can’t continue to spit on the voters and expect them to keep coming out to support you.

Trump says he’s signed $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite being ‘unhappy’ about it

  • Trump says he signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite a veto threat.
  • The about-face on a possible veto came a day after White House officials had said Trump would sign the legislation despite his misgivings.
  • Trump is irked about the immigration proposals included in the legislation.

President Donald Trump said he signed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill into law Friday, despite a veto threat and provisions he says he is “unhappy” about.

The president approved the legislation to fund the government through September for national security reasons, as it authorizes a major increase in military spending that he supports. But he stressed that he did so reluctantly.

Trump slammed the rushed process to pass the more than 2,200-page bill released only Wednesday. The president said he was “disappointed” in the legislation and would “never sign another bill like this again.”

“We’re very proud of many of the items that we’ve been able to get. We’re very disappointed that in order to fund the military, we had to give up things where we consider in many cases them to be bad or them to be a waste of money. But that’s the way unfortunately right now the system works,” Trump said at the White House on Friday. He added that he “looked very seriously” at a veto, but his support for the military spending levels “overrode” his concerns about the bill.

Trump teased a veto a day after the White House had said he would sign the legislation despite his misgivings. He raised the risk of a government shutdown only hours before the midnight Friday deadline. Then the president, who enjoys creating tension and drama, announced he would not veto the bill in an event carried on live television.

Trump highlighted the portions of the bill he supports: the nearly $80 billion increase in defense spending, a $1.6 billion boost to border security funding and a cash injection to fight the opioid epidemic. The border money will go mostly toward surveillance technology and fencing similar to structures that already exist on the southern border. The amount of funding came in far below what the president wanted.

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump said he was “considering a VETO” because the proposal does not extend protections for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants or fully fund his proposed border wall.
