At the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday, CIA director Mike Pompeo said, “WikiLeaks will take down America any way they can and find any willing partner to achieve that end.”
What sort of America can be “taken down” by the truth? https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/88838565234523750
To be fair, leaking is a major problem, specifically the leaking to overthrow our democratically elected president by deep state cronies who are using America’s massive spy apparatus — which was supposed to be used against foreigners — to sabotage our president through targeted leaks to their accomplices in the controlled media.
It’s understandable Pompeo doesn’t want the CIA to be leaking like a sieve, but let’s look at some of these recent leakers.
• Bradley Manning leaked information on US war crimes in the neocon war in Iraq.
• Snowden leaked information on the US spying apparatus being used domestically against Americans rather than against foreigners as promised.
• Reality Winner was a stupid little girl who should have never been hired if the government still had basic standards and wasn’t more interested in hiring in the name of “diversity” rather than ability.
When you have a “multicultural” society filled with wildly different people with wildly different interests, getting “loyalty” from the diverse bunch you hire is simply never going to happen.
Few young people have any sense of loyalty to our criminal deep state because it doesn’t represent their interests. We’re not living in the America of the 1940’s and 1950’s where Americans were largely united in the fight against communism were more than happy to execute leakers like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
From Jonathan Swan writing at Axios on new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appearing on Breitbart News Saturday to give his first interview since joining the Trump Administration:
Anthony Scaramucci gave his first interview as White House communications director to Breitbart’s Matt Boyle. The two sounded like old friends, with Scaramucci kicking off the Saturday morning Breitbart radio interview by jokingly asking Boyle, “Did you send your job application form in yet, Matt?…Do you need my email so I can get your resume over here?”
Boyle laughed and replied: “Anthony, I’m honored, maybe we can talk about that later.” Scaramucci praised Breitbart for capturing “the spirit of what is actually going on in the country, where there’s a large group of people…who’ve been disaffected from the economic franchise.”
Between the lines: Sean Spicer had a terrible relationship with Breitbart, the right-wing outlet whose alumni, including Steve Bannon, now work in the White House. Scaramucci now appears to want to elevate the outlet in general, and Boyle in particular. By giving Boyle (Breitbart’s most unrestrained attack dog) such prominence from the outset, Scaramucci is signaling that the President wants to make better use of conservative/friendly media outlets to transmit his messages without a critical filter.

Elon Musk just confirm that the American moon landings were faked?
Mother should I trust the government?
-Pink Floyd, Mother
Elon Musk just announced that SpaceX abandons propulsive landing plans for Red Dragon mission to Mars.
In my opinion, we should not be surprised.
NASA supposedly used propulsive landing for the Apollo missions to the moon…in 1969.
I ask you to please click the following hyperlinks to read three articles, carefully, watch one 3-1/3 minute video, closely, and then draw your own conclusions about the Apollo Moon landings that we are told occured nearly 50 years ago.
“The reason we decided not to pursue that heavily is that it would have taken a tremendous amount of effort to qualify that for safety for crew transport,” Musk said. “That’s why we are not pursuing it. It could be something that we bring back later, but it doesn’t seem like the right way to apply resources right now.”
Musk added that he did not think that propulsive landing was the best approach.
Second, my article from ZeroHedge, last year, 2016:
” My premise is that President Kennedy wasn’t an aerospace engineer, he was a politician faced with the Russians and their satellites scaring the shit out of his constituency. He called our shot, but we couldn’t make it. So they lied.”
Third, an article from Physics Professor, Dr. Oleg Oleynik, in 2012, and updated in 2017*:
“Thus, based on the above examples, this study concludes that the Apollo 15 photographic record does NOT depict real lunarscapes with distant backgrounds located more than a kilometre away from the camera.”
“These pictures were, without doubt, taken in a studio set – up to 300 metres in size. A complex panorama mimicking the lunarscape shows degrees of movement, such as horizontal and vertical changes to give an impression of imaginary distance to the objects and perspective.”
Fourth, a youtube video of the Apollo 11 astronaut press conference upon returning from the moon, July 20,1969*:
Do these three guys, who supposedly just came back from the moon with two of them landing and returning, look and sound like they just came back from the moon?
And here is the full hour and half press conference. Listen to the actual words and sentence structure as well as the body language, which is screaming out-loud disingenuous…

Border Patrol Union President Praises Trump – Cites ‘Miraculous’ Drop In Illegal Immigration
A sharp dropoff in the number of illegal border crossers coming into the United States from Mexico is “nothing short of miraculous,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN on Monday.
As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on.
We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.
There’s a vibe, there’s an energy in the Border Patrol that’s never been there before in 20 years that I’ve been in the patrol. –Brandon Judd
Judd went on to say that Trump’s two Executive Orders instructing border agents to fully carry out laws is in sharp contrast to the Obama administration, which kept agents from performing their sworn duties.
The Washington Examiner reports a 53% decrease in apprehensions at the Southwest border compared to last year – a 6 year low:
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency on Friday reported a huge drop in arrests along the Southwest border, a likely result of President Trump’s aggressive effort to stop illegals from entering the nation and deport those with criminal records.
The agency said that apprehensions dropped 53 percent from a year ago. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible.
53% decrease in arrests at the border over last year, now at a 6 year low thanks to @realDonaldTrump http://ibankcoin.com/zeropointnow/2017/07/17/border-patrol-union-praises-trump-cites-miraculous-drop-in-illegal-immigration/#sthash.cFn7oWUt.LAoXnyOo.dpbs …
The NBPC President added that a southern border wall was necessary for select parts of the border, however he added that the entire border between the U.S. and Mexico does not need a full fence.
The Department of Homeland Security has been given $1.6 billion towards the wall – which, according to a report in the Texas Observer, is well underway.

Meanwhile… Trump’s Team Has Defeated ISIS in Iraq and We Have a Cease-Fire in Syria!
Not bad for a new administration! Congrats to All! One would think that the onslaught of news concerning Trump Jr was the most important determinant of this new administration. Not one news rag featured the recent defeat of ISIS by the American-assisted Iraq forces.
What Bush Jr had wrought in his ignorance/arrogance in 9/11, Trump &Co. [Sec. Def. James Mattis et. al. ] have successfully defeated ISIS in Mosul, Iraq. Awaiting further outcome is the impending cease-fire in Syria between USA and Russia. Despite such achievements, this administration continues to be eviscerated by the MSM while the VP Mike Pence wastes little time garnering large-sized donations from fellow Republicans in case he might become POTUS.
Despite the yellow journalism headlines that the administration is in disarray, the truth is that Team Trump is accomplishing quite a lot. Yet,little notice is given to any of such successes.
- Obamacare is being dissembled to be replaced [hopefully] by a more flexible, less expensive health care plan.
- The military is doing what the military has not done for the past few decades—fighting at will as well as winning wars.
- Nuclear war in North Korea has been averted.
- Russia has become a stronger ally of Trump’s since the G-20 conference.
It’s mind boggling how obsessed the MSM has become with the minutest details of an administration and a family that has accomplished so much. Whether Trump Jr did or did not receive salacious materials concerning HRC is not all that important because HRC self-destructed with the aid of a $100million donation. No amount of trivia can supplant HRC’s own incompetency in running a less than a valiant race without even the apparent help of her savvy “Slick Willy”.

A new study reveals that up to 5.7 million illegal immigrants were likely to have voted in the 2008 election, meaning Donald Trump was almost certainly right when he said this was the reason for him losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race.
After Trump made the claim that votes by millions of illegal immigrants cost him the popular vote, he was lambasted by the press, who blamed an Infowars story published on November 14 in which we reported that around 3 million illegals voted.
Ever since then, Trump’s assertion that millions of illegals voted has been called a “fake news” conspiracy theory.
Back in January, the New York Times again called Trump’s claim a “lie,” however a new study shows that if anything we underestimated the number of illegals who voted.
“A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates,” reports the Washington Times.
Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team of researchers looked at data from a Harvard/YouGov study which includes a sample size of tens of thousands of voters, including non-citizens who admit they are not eligible to vote.
Agresti concluded that as many as 5.7 million illegals voted in 2008,a far higher figure than previously thought. In 2012, the figure was as high as 3.6 million.
“The details are technical, but the figure I calculated is based on a more conservative margin of sampling error and a methodology that I consider to be more accurate,” Mr. Agresti told The Washington Times.
Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million. If we take the 2008 figure and subtract that from her total, Trump would have easily won the popular vote.
Vice President Mike Pence is currently leading an investigation into voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election. If his findings replicate Agresti’s, the media is going to have egg on its face once again.

There is no reason for the Democratic Party to exist.
– Jimmy Dore
I’ve been surprised by the number of people who lived in total denial about who Barack Obama actually was throughout his entire administration, suddenly pointing out the ethical and demoralizing implications of his recent decision to accept $400,000 for a speech to Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.
For myself and countless others, the writing was on the wall from virtually day one when he appointed Wall Street sycophants Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers to senior positions within his administration. Then came the policies, which were even more generous to Wall Street than any cynic could imagine. I posted countless pieces on Obama’s cronyism throughout his Presidency, constantly referring to him as an oligarch-coddling fraud, which his record unquestionably confirms.
It wasn’t just Wall Street either. Although his protection and empowerment of that industry was particularly shameless, he coddled and elevated corporatism and cronyism generally throughout his eight years. As I observed in the 2015 post, Cronyism Pays – Eric “Too Big to Jail” Holder Triumphantly Returns to His Prior Corporate Law Firm Job:
Trying to determine Barack Obama’s most corrupt, crony appointee presents a virtually impossible task. Every single person he’s appointed to a position of power over the course of his unfathomably shady, violent and unconstitutional presidency, has been little more than a gatekeeper for powerful vested interests. Obama’s job was to talk like a marxist, but act like a robber baron. In this regard, his reign has been an unprecedented success.
So why am I writing about Barack Obama? He’s no longer President, and we once again face many of the exact same issues under President Trump. I’m addressing it because I think the fact so many people are finally having this conversation is a very good thing. We can’t have an honest dialogue about such an existential issue without admitting to ourselves the sad truth about who Barack Obama is.
While I certainly understand it would’ve been far more beneficial had many of these people faced reality years ago, we don’t get to decide when people come around to admitting to themselves the truth about a person they worshipped (as my screaming into the wilderness for eight years can attest).
Denial is an extremely powerful thing, and tens of millions of Democrats were completely bamboozled by Obama due to their personal obsession with the man. This is precisely why cult of personality worship is so dangerous and counterproductive when it comes to politics. We need to grow up as a culture and start supporting policies over people, logic over emotion. If you become attached to a politician or a political party like a sports team, that individual or institution can very easily manipulate and betray you. We see this over and over again, and until we move to a higher level of understanding about the world around us, we will continue to be victimized by disingenuous, opportunistic shysters.
Today’s post will highlight two excellent exposes of the real Barack Obama by two individuals who were not fooled by Obama’s soaring rhetoric and false promises, Matt Stoller and Jimmy Dore.
Let’s start with excerpts from Matt’s recent Medium piece, Obama the Hamiltonian:
Obama, like Bush, is a Hamiltonian. He believed that those at the top of large concentrated financial institutions are experts, with top-tier credentials, and, therefore, rightful rulers. As Mr. Obama put it, Jamie Dimon, the chief executive of JP Morgan Chase, and Lloyd Blankfein, the chief executive of Goldman Sachs, were just “smart businessmen.”
Behind this is a deep moral debate that goes back hundreds of years, to the days of Hamilton and Nicholas Biddle. Since the Boston Tea Party revolt against the British East Indies Company’s attempted monopolization of the tea trade in 1773, Americans understood local commercial institutions as enabling key decisions to be made closer to the people who bore the costs of those decisions. Advocates of centralization, like Hamilton, believed that this was an unstable and weak model for how to craft a nation-state, and that a quasi-aristocratic class should rule.
The policy path of the Obama administration, like the Bush and Clinton administrations before it, and in some ways like Hamilton’s Treasury Department, was largely construed around aiding the big, and hurting the small. Local banks lost out during the crisis, as did community-oriented banks. Black-owned banks, for example, were ten times less likely to receive bailout money than non-black-owned banks. This hit at the individual level as well. People in foreclosure were treated with one set of rules, while large Wall Street firms with significant debt were treated with another.
As all of you must know by now, my personal convictions and philosophical leanings call for the exact opposite approach.
This Hamiltonian process of concentrating power was most obvious in the banking sector, but it is also part of an overall trend towards the monopolization of our commercial society and increasing control over our lives, our liberties, and our democracy by private financiers. Some within the Obama administration noticed problems towards the end of the administration. His administration challenged the Comcast-Time Warner merger and issued an executive order on monopoly. Antitrust chief Renata Hesse made a speech explicitly rejecting the modern pro-concentration treatment of antitrust. But this was far too little, loo late.
The open markets in which entrepreneurs thrive, in which workers have bargaining power, in which business is conducted honestly and effectively for the benefit of society, was fundamentally weakened during the eight years of the Obama administration, just as they had been during the Bush administration before it. The result is a bipartisan corrosive cynicism towards democracy,
Americans have been saying no to this for ten years. In 2006 and 2008, Americans threw the governing Republican Party out of power. In 2010 and 2014, they did the same to the Democrats, installing Obama in power. Then, in 2016, Donald J. Trump beat both 16 Republican candidates, and then Hillary Clinton. It’s hard to see these electoral tremors as anything other than a rejection of the moral framework of both party establishments.
For virtually his whole Presidency, President Obama operated according to a Hamiltonian worldview in which social justice and concentrated capital went hand-in-hand, where technocracy was seen as superior to democracy. It is that same moral vision that animated Obama in accepting nearly half a million dollars in speaking fee money. Obama was the damn President?—?he’s a smart guy, and yeah, this is who he should be spending time with and naturally this transfer of wealth is a just reward for him to live the lifestyle to which the virtuous class is entitled.
Obama’s good society was one in which a few actors in this class organize our culture using their power over our lives and liberties, because their virtue has enabled them to have the capital or credentials to do so. It’s why his policy agenda on the challenges of today’s political economy was education, early childhood education, and a higher minimum wage, rather than any means to liberate us from the concentrated financiers that organize our markets and our communities. They are doing this for our own good, for one day, maybe not you or me, but perhaps our children might be able to scratch and claw into this rarefied class. If, of course, they have the virtue and intelligence to do so.
Many people believe in this system. Many don’t. But now we can actually have the argument in an honest way.
The entire post is excellent and you should read it in full and share. He makes the very critical point that we as a people cannot move forward until we admit to ourselves what this country has actually become. Perhaps a shattering of the Obama illusion for the millions of those who were until recently somehow still clinging on to the dishonest “hope and change” rhetoric can serve as a starting point for some real change.
Finally, I want to share Jimmy Dore’s latest rant on the topic. Readers know how much I love his show based me consistently highlighting it on these pages, but this might be his best one yet.
Before you take a watch, I want to note that this week has been a little slow on the Liberty Blitzkrieg donation front, so if you enjoy my work and have the means to contribute, please consider doing so.

Being one of the more inept tentacles of the deep state, CNN was apparently caught staging Fake News in the aftermath of the ISIS claimed London attacks which claimed 7 lives and injured 48.
While ISIS supporters are celebrating the attacks, MSM propagandists have been hard at work pushing the “religion of peace” narrative – trotting out hijabbed women and a child to hold signs expressing Muslim outrage at the terrorist attacks.
This doesn’t appear to have been an ‘organic’ protest against terrorism… Instead, it looks very much like CNN staged their outrage.

DHS CHIEF JOHN KELLY: INTEL LEAKS ‘BORDERLINE, IF NOT OVER THE LINE, OF TREASON’
‘If it came from the United States, it’s totally unacceptable’
Vladimir Putin in particular, and Russia in general, have been the focus of an intensive high-drama propaganda campaign of late. Are you buying it? For the time being, Russophobia has replaced Islamophobia as the driving force behind the lies. Various US officials have been frantically warning Americans that the Russians are behind everything: hacking the DNC, controlling Trump, influencing the election and breaking the Syrian ceasefire agreement. They might as well add making your girlfriend break up with you, making your toast get burnt and making your car run out of fuel for all the evidence they have presented. Many of these totally unfounded allegations stem from (naturally) the Clinton campaign, home to career criminals Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are desperately seeking to find something to gain some sort of shred of popularity or advantage over Trump, who fills up arenas with 1000s of people more easily than Clinton can fill a high school gym with 50. Many US officials and war hawks are trying to get in on the action; CIA man Mike Morell indicated it would be a good idea to covertly kill Russians to make them “pay a price”; Hillary Clinton called Vladimir Putin the “grand godfather of extreme nationalism” and blamed him for the rising popularity of right-wing leaders; and even standing VP Joe Biden came out and said that, “We’re sending a message to Putin … it will be at the time of our choosing and under the circumstances that have the greatest impact”. It seems there is no depth to which some US leaders won’t stoop in order to gain some political advantage, even it means lying, demonizing and destroying geopolitical partnerships in order to garner a few brownie points.

Even Dems, Media, Intel Folks Growing Skeptical on Trump Collusion with Russia
With headlines swirling and lawmakers meeting behind closed doors, it’s not difficult to conclude there is trouble in the Trump White House.
President Donald Trump’s shocking decision to fire FBI director James Comey on Tuesday evening represents the latest in a political outsider’s crusade against entrenched Washington.
The unusual move—a surprise to say the least—has drawn the usual critics against Trump from the media, Democratic Party and even those inside his own GOP. Regardless of the bickering back and forth between Trump and his usual District of Columbia critics over the reasoning, timing and thinking behind it, the move to fire Comey is the latest development in a true outsider’s war on Washington.
The former assistant director of the FBI tells Breitbart News that President Donald Trump fired bureau director James Comey for legitimate reasons.
