Second Ex-Senate Staffer Connected to Jackson Cosko Pleads Guilty in Aiding Doxxing of GOP Senators – Faces Up to 18 Months in Prison
Jackson Cosko (R) with accomplice Samantha Deforest Davis (L)
Ex-Democrat staffer Jackson Cosko was sentenced to prison last month in what federal prosecutors say was the largest data theft in Senate history.
In October 2018, during the senate hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Capitol Police arrested 27-year-old Jackson Cosko of DC for “allegedly posting private, identifying information (doxxing) about one or more United States Senators.”
Jackson Cosko also threatened to leak Republican Senators’ children’s health information if any witnesses dared go to the authorities about his criminal activities.
But he didn’t act alone — Cosko had an accomplice — 21-year-old Samantha Deforest Davis was charged last month in federal court just hours after Jackson Cosko was sentenced.
Samantha Deforest Davis on Tuesday pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges — aiding computer fraud and evidence tampering, reported Politico and she could face up to 18 months in prison.
The Difference Between Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Dry Needling
July 29, 2019
Almost 20 years ago when I went to graduate school to study acupuncture, I had two choices. I could pursue a master’s in acupuncture or one in traditional Chinese medicine.
The master’s in Chinese medicine was more in-depth and included the study of Chinese herbs, as well as other modalities. I realized that I wanted depth and breadth, and after briefly trying the shorter acupuncture program, switched to the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) program.
Like me, there are many people who get confused over the difference, or whether there is a difference, between acupuncture and Chinese medicine. To throw more confusion into the mix, there are now people offering something called dry needling, which seems suspiciously like acupuncture despite its name. So, what is the difference between these terms?
The dramatic advances in satellite imaging technology in the last 10 years have privacy advocates worried about 24-hour surveillance. Right now, US federal regulations help keep things in check, so that while commercial satellite imagery is powerful enough, for instance, to see a car, it’s not detailed enough to identify the make and model, according to a report from the MIT Technology Review.
Satellite companies say they keep a person’s data separate from any identifying characteristics, but Peter Martinez of the Secure World Foundation said that doesn’t matter.
“The risks arise not only from the satellite images themselves but the fusion of Earth observation data with other sources of data,” Martinez said in an email.
Democrats such as Nadler and Schiff had high hopes that Mueller would spill some sort of anti-Trump beans. They want to restart the Russian collusion farce.
The want our president impeached.
Many of the Democrats praised Mueller effusively and honored him for his service. Indeed, Mueller does deserve honor for his service as a marine. His behavior as an FBI head and now special prosecutor has been less than honorable. Taxpayers spent close to 40 million dollars so he could drag out the witch-hunt.
Mueller was installed to protect the swamp and after what I saw today, that swamp can finally begin to be drained. The witch-hunt is over.
There will be no impeachment. The Democrats lost. They defeated themselves.
The Robert Mueller IMPLOSION: It’s time for Barr and Trump to prosecute the deep state traitors, or the American people will never regain any faith in the justice system

(Natural News) The catastrophic face plant of Robert Mueller in yesterday’s testimony — a whirlwind of senility, incompetence and deceit by Mueller — has collapsed the Democrats’ delusional “Russia collusion” narrative. When the author of the Mueller report (i.e. Robert Mueller himself) says he has no idea who Fusion GPS is — they are the firm hired to scrounge up the Steel Dossier that became the very basis for the Mueller investigation — you know the false narrative has collapsed into utter hilarity.
With Democrats in a total panic over the collapse of Mueller, it’s time for Trump and AG Barr to criminally prosecute those who engaged in coordinated treason against America.
Those criminals include deep state operatives like James “the clown” Comey, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, James, Clapper, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, Loretta Lynch and many more. But the circle of treason is much wider than just the deep state players inside the Obama regime; it also includes the CEOs of tech companies like Google as well as journo-terrorists who are pretending to be journalists working at CNN, Buzzfeed, the Washington Post and other treasonous propaganda hubs that have zero regard for journalistic standards of any kind.
All of these parties have, in one way or another, sold out America and tried to carry out a coordinated criminal conspiracy to overthrow the United States government and nullify the 2016 election. Many of the individuals involved have been deeply infiltrated by communist China to the point where Google, for example, is now engaged in open treason against the United States of America.
Sponsored solution from the Health Ranger Store: Lab-verified Nascent Iodine solution is a dietary supplement that provides your body with supplemental iodine to help protect your thyroid during radiation exposure. Nuclear accidents such as Fukushima (or nuclear war) can expose your body to radioactive iodine-131, a dangerous radioisotope. Pre-loading your system with stable iodine occupies the iodine receptor sites on your organs, causing your body to naturally expel radioactive iodine you may have been exposed to through air, food, water or milk products. This defensive strategy is recommended by nearly all health authorities, worldwide, including the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Discover more at this link.
As I explain in my urgent video below, William Barr must prosecute those guilty of treason, or the American people will forever lose faith in the entire social construct of the “rule of law.”
When the American people see the politically connected elite get away with heinous crimes such as witness tampering, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, the silencing of the speech rights of conservative Americans and the relentless election rigging by the tech giants, they lose faith in the entire fabric of the rule of law. If faith in the system of justice is not restored, America will rip itself apart as people everywhere come to the same conclusion: There is no law. There is no justice. Following the law is a pointless endeavor.
When traitors like Robert Mueller, James Comey and Barack Obama get away with the highest crimes imaginable against our great nation, the message that gets sent to the patriots of America is, “YOU will be silenced and prosecuted for your political beliefs, but THEY will be absolved of all crimes because they are Democrats and deep staters.”
And frankly, that simply won’t fly anymore in America.

Defense Secretary Esper: We Will Create Create A More Lethal Military Force
— Thursday, July 25, 2019
At a ceremony outside the Pentagon Thursday, Mark Esper gave his first remarks as the nation’s 27th Secretary of Defense. He vowed to “continue strengthening the U.S. military,” and build “a more lethal force.”
President Trump and Vice President Pence were in attendance as Esper announced his plans to reform the department and make the most use of “every dollar Congress” grants it.
During a speech, the president joked about Esper’s bipartisan support in the Senate:
“I can see he had some talent because he won, was it 98 to what? No you got 90 right? Can you believe this? I don’t believe it. I heard a 90. 90 to 8, right? I don’t know, I haven’t heard that sound in a long time Mark. Now I’m worried.”
Secretary Esper also said he will spearhead the creation of the sixth military branch known as the Space Force. The president has been a vocal proponent of a Space Force, so the U.S. may broaden its network and carry out duties in outer space.

California’s nuclear power plants found to be sitting on top of a massive supervolcano filled with 240 cubic miles of magma
07/23/2019 / By Ethan Huff
Right smack dab underneath the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, California, where a pair of larger earthquakes struck on July 4th and 5th, respectively, sits a new “supervolcano” that a whistleblower from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) warns is brewing with 240 cubic miles of potentially ready-to-erupt magma.
According to the whistleblower, this hidden magma chamber below China Lake, which was only just recently discovered, is far larger even than Yellowstone, which bodes ominous for the future of California, including the handful of nuclear power facilities that sit above it in multiple locales throughout the state.
While the magma chamber is already becoming quite active, it is not yet rising to the surface, this whistleblower claims. But another major earthquake in the area could change all of that, creating a huge fracture that would allow magma to start shooting up from the ground, causing untold widespread destruction.
“FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), the National Guard and other agencies have been alerted and are on standby to evacuate key VIPs,” the whistleblower revealed in a message.
“You may see blackhawks arriving in LA picking up people evacuating them as well as other major cities. We’ve been censoring and removing fault lines and earthquakes from the live feeds as the faults have expanded. There will be no mention of this anywhere, so leave now as the fireworks are ready to start.”

Study confirms that man-made climate change is completely fake (so much for consensus…)
07/23/2019 / By Ethan Huff
Just how much of a threat to the subsistence of our planet is man-made climate change, according to the latest scientific data? It’s not actually a threat at all, it turns out, because man-made climate change doesn’t exist.
This is the conclusion of a new study out of Finland, in which researchers from the University of Turku determined that the contribution of humans to global temperature increases over the past century is negligible, at best.
While planetary temperatures are said to have risen by about 0.1 degrees Celsius over the past 100 years, human activity contributed only about 0.01 degrees Celsius of this, or about 10 percent.
Entitled, “No experimental evidence for the significant anthropogenic climate change,” the paper reiterates that global temperature fluctuations are primarily influenced by things like cloud cover that have absolutely nothing to do with humans eating meat, driving cars, or raising livestock that fart.
“Only a small part,” write authors Jyrki Kauppinen and Pekka Malmi, the study’s two primary authors, of rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels is anthropogenic – which means that all of the fear-mongering by leftists about humans supposedly “destroying the planet” is nothing but fake news.
These conclusions directly contradict the official positions of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which insists that human activity is the primary contributor to fluctuating climate conditions around the world.
“While the methods and results of the study can be debated, this once again illustrates how there is no overwhelming consensus on man-made global warming as the media often claims,” writes Paul Joseph Watson for Infowars.
MUST READ: Vladimir Putin Discusses Russian Interference in US Election and the Attempted Coup d’état with Oliver Stone
Russian President Vladimir Putin recently sat down for an interview with far left Hollywood producer Oliver Stone.
The transcript for the interview was posted on the Kremlin website.
Most of the liberal mainstream media is covering the part of the interview where Oliver Stone asked Putin to be the godfather of his grandson. The Democrat Pravda media is ignoring the rest.
You can make up your own mind on this interview.
But it really is amazing that he is more believable in this video than the liberal mainstream media has been in the past three years!

Mueller’s ‘Star Witness’ George Nader Indicted on Additional Child Sex Crime Charges
George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman and one of Mueller’s ‘star witnesses’ was charged in a Virginia federal court on Friday with additional child sex crimes.
Recall, Nader was previously indicted on June 3rd on child pornography charges.
According to a 3-count indictment unsealed Friday, Nader was charged earlier in July for possessing child pornography and for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual acts.
Nader is accused of transporting a 14-year-old European boy to the United States for sex in the year 2000.
The new charges against Nader was first reported by the Daily Beast.
Robert Mueller previously investigated whether George Nader, an advisor to the United Arab Emirates, was influencing U.S. policy, the New York Times reported in March of 2018 — Nader was reportedly interviewed by the Special Counsel’s team twice.

US Government Responds After Over Half a Million UFO Sleuths Say They Will Storm Area 51 to ‘See Them Aliens’
Over 700,000 civilians have now indicated that they will be participating in a bizarre event to storm an infamous secretive military facility in September to “see them aliens,” a number that has been rapidly growing since the plan was announced. The Defense Department has now warned people to think again.
In just two days the number of people who have signed up for the event has more than doubled. Meanwhile, almost 650,000 people expressed interest in participating as of the time of the publication of this article. According to the event page, the alien enthusiasts will meet at 3 a.m. on Sept. 20 “at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry.”
“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. [Let’s] see them aliens,” the event said in the description of their page while referring a popular Japanese anime series.
Area 51 is a mysterious United States military base located between mountain ranges north of Las Vegas, Nevada, and has for decades been the subject of discussion for UFO sleuths and believers in government-led coverups of aliens. The CIA had previously admitted to Area 51’s existence in a declassified document of the agency’s U-2 spy plane program but there was no mention of spaceships or aliens.
Access to the facility remains highly restricted. According to inverse.com, about the closest place interested parties can get to on land to catch sight of Area 51 is Tikaboo Peak, around 26 miles away.
“We’re Not Going to be Silenced” Trump Says He Will Explore Regulatory Solutions to Address Social Media Censorship (VIDEO)
During the millennia governments have existed, the core of their nature appears to hardly ever have been properly investigated or their legitimacy questioned. It’s no rare phenomenon to see objections that the institution holds too much power at a given moment, or that it should not take on additional functions, but that’s usually where the questioning ends. Even the American founders were deemed revolutionary for seeking to establish a government solely limited to the protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and they did, in fact, go far enough with this as to open up for the possibility of abolishing it if it ever grew beyond these functions. It’s a tragic occurrence, therefore, to witness that same nation taking on more and more characteristics in line with historical empires like Rome rather than a society based on tort law like Celtic Ireland and the Commonwealth of Iceland.
One of Three Entangled North Atlantic Right Whales on Its Way to Freedom
July 12, 2019
One of the endangered, entangled North Atlantic right whales is partially free.
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans said in a news release that on Thursday, “for the first time in several days,” the weather conditions were favourable for searching and attempting to rescue the three North Atlantic right whales that were entangled in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, off Miscou Island, New Brunswick.
The department said the whale known as number 4423 was seen during a surveillance flight by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration around 10 a.m., and the Campobello Whale Rescue Team then began disentanglement operations, successfully removing gear that was keeping the whale from using its tail when diving.
Attempts to remove additional gear had to be paused when it got dark.
Fisheries and Oceans
Yesterday, the Campobello Whale Rescue team, with help from #FisheryOfficers, @Transport_gc and @NOAA,were able to remove some gear from one of the 3 entangled #RightWhales. Efforts will continue to locate and rescue the other 2 whales, weather permitting.
Number 4423 was first seen entangled on July 4 east of Miscou Island, N.B., and is believed to have been snarled before entering Canadian waters, with initial reports indicating it could be a whale first sighted in April entangled in U.S. waters.
This whale was spotted by the Canadian Coast Guard with a rope around its tail and thought to be dragging something heavy.
Surveillance flights continued to search for the two others entangled right whales that were recently observed in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
A few weeks ago we reported that around $1 billion worth of cocaine (15,500 kilos) was seized from a container ship at a Philadelphia port after having stopped in Colombia, Chile, Peru, Panama and the Bahamas (subsequently it turned out that it was a record $1.3 billion, or 18,000 kilos worth).
Today we learn that the vessel, the MSC Gayane, is owned by JP Morgan, and has been seized by US authorities according to the Wall Street Journal. The Gayane is the world’s second-largest container ship – operated by Switzerland-based Mediterranean Shipping Co, MSC.

Pedophile Doctor Faces Board That Could Take Away His Pension

A former government pediatrician who has been convicted of sexually assaulting his Native American patients now faces a military-style disciplinary board that could strip him of his pension, a senior U.S. health official said in a letter.
The doctor, Stanley Patrick Weber, worked for three decades as a pediatrician at government-run Indian Health Service hospitals. He was also an officer in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a group of uniformed health workers that follows some military conventions.
Mr. Weber was convicted in September of sexually assaulting young boys under his care. But, that didn’t stop the flow of his government pension. The Wall Street Journal reported in March he was poised to receive at least $1.8 million in federal pension payments while serving an 18-year prison term.
Largest Pro-Trump Community Gains 10,000 Members After Reddit ‘Quarantine’
After social media platform Reddit put restrictions on its subpage r/The_Donald—the largest fan club of President Donald Trump—the page grew by about 10,000 subscribers in 24 hours, compared with a growth of about 11,000 a month during the preceding year.
As of the afternoon of June 27, the subscriber count stood at 765,000.
Reddit put the page in “quarantine” in the afternoon of June 26, which means the page doesn’t show up in search, recommendations, or general Reddit feeds, such as the r/Popular. Ads are also no longer placed on the page–which had been the case already—and users are shown a warning before they can access it.

In Blow Against Planned Parenthood, Judges Rule to Let Trump Defund Abortion Clinics
TRUMP ORDERED ATTACK…
THEN PULLED BACK!
UPDATE….A CENSORED POST FROM TWITTER ACCT…..
The meltdown of the Zionist control grid is now public, as even the corporate mainstream propaganda media is reporting the attacks last week on tankers near Oman as “false flag.” The situation has reached the point that former U.S. colonies like Germany and Japan are openly and publicly defying the U.S. President and Secretary of State on this issue. This surreal turn of events is comparable to the fall of Communism and the Soviet Union.
In this case, we are witnessing the fall of the U.S. corporate government and (possibly) the rebirth of the Republic of the United States of America. In fact, we may even be witnessing the fall from power of the secret family groupings hiding behind monotheism.
The 13 bloodlines who have controlled monotheism are, in fact, negotiating a new system for running the planet, according to European royals and members of the White Dragon Society (WDS). If these negotiations succeed, it will be the biggest event in thousands of years of human history. If they fail, there will be chaos and bloodshed, especially among the elite, anti-bloodline Gnostic Illuminati, sources say.
Even if this sounds exaggerated, events in the actual real world do show a fundamental change. Let’s start with the failure of the false flag attack of the coast of Oman. U.S. naval intelligence and CIA sources followed the money to see who benefits from this attack. The trail led to the Rothschild-owned Glencore commodities company in Switzerland, which had positioned itself to profit from a spike in oil futures prices immediately before this attack took place, the sources say. Unfortunately, the oil futures price spike turned out to be merely a dead cat bounce and the Rothschilds failed to profit as expected. That’s because the markets, and the world, have had enough of the Zionists crying Iranian wolf, they say.
What’s interesting about this latest provocation is how even a former U.S. colony like Japan is no longer going along with the Zionist playbook. To quote from corporate news reports, “Even if it’s the United States that makes the assertion, we cannot simply say we believe it,” said a source close to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. If having expertise sophisticated enough to conduct the attack could be a reason to conclude that the attacker was Iran, “That would apply to the United States and Israel as well,” said a source at the Foreign Ministry.
As far back as I can remember, this sort of public Japanese rebuke of a sitting U.S. administration has never happened even once since Japan lost World War II.

4 Insane Data Privacy Scandals, Just From This Month

For this Friday’s roll-up of bizarre and disturbing stories from around the world, we found ourselves zeroing-in on some ridiculous data privacy violations.
Soccer app spies on fans
The Spanish soccer (sigh, OK– football) league, known by fans around the world simply as La Liga, knew that most pubs across Europe showing its matches weren’t paying for the subscription.
La Liga was sick of losing out on royalties from the pirated video streams. So they turned their fans into unwitting spies.
Through a special app they encouraged fans to download, La Liga was able to secretly activate the mobile devices’ microphones.
They then listened in on the fans’ surroundings (and pinpointed their location) to determine if the fan was in a pub watching an unlicensed broadcast.
When they finally got caught, the league received a tiny slap on the wrist for this extraordinary crime– a mere fine of €250,000, roughly USD $280,000.
I hope this makes you re-think some of the apps you’ve downloaded…

Creating an Illusion of Chaos Is the Purpose of Anti-Trump Fake News
In his 1928 book “Propaganda,” which helped shape tactics for modern advertising and politics, Edward Bernays wrote, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societies.
“Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
Currently, these mechanisms of public control are being used to create an illusion of chaos.
Chaos has important, strategic uses—mainly, in locking down a situation that falls outside the normal mechanisms of control. With chaos as the goal, and by using half-truths, false conclusions, and information out of context, the media-industrial complex has built a false illusion around the Trump presidency that many Americans have taken as reality.
Is Matt Gaetz the future of Trump foreign policy?
Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, a Trump favorite and Fox News star, may have just fired the first loud shot of a new ideological war that may be heard around the world.
‘The “fog of war” is no fog to me, or any of the 700,000 people I serve,’ Gaetz clarified to a surprised Washington crowd of lefties and libertarians last month.
‘It is not hazy,’ said Gaetz, whose North Florida district has the highest concentration of active-duty military in America. ‘We see the impact of war every day among the people we love who shape our lives. It is a stark reminder that the unmatched freedoms we enjoy are not free — they are bought with the blood of American patriots. And it is our solemn duty and highest responsibility to make sure that this sacred currency is spent only when absolutely necessary.’
As I’ve reported, Gaetz quietly served as chief lobbyist against continued administration support of Saudi Arabia’s Yemen escapade, arguing that Trump should decline to veto a recent resolution condemning the war. Trump didn’t listen, but he and his team are still listening to Gaetz, who Trump loyalists are urging to cross state lines and reclaim the Alabama Senate seat lost by Roy Moore.
Polemics against the security state are nothing new. Gaetz’s left-libertarian audience on Capitol Hill would have gladly taken up arms against any of America’s recent and misguided foreign ventures — in Iraq, in Libya, in Syria. But a foreign policy anchored in support of the sitting president of the United States who is also, until further notice, the unquestioned standard-bearer of a major political party?
We all love wine. In fact, most nights of the week our editors sip a glass or two to wind down after work. The liquor store nearest us doesn’t always have the best prices, or the best selection. They have limited shelf space, and store employees don’t always recommend bottles we’ll enjoy. Liquor stores are focused on volume and margin (it’s not their fault rent is expensive) leaving many people reaching for the yellow-labeled bottle with the kangaroo they stick in the front of the store. Tasting Room seeks to change that.
Tasting Room, the fastest growing wine club in the nation, is changing how wine is sold. Think of it like the movie industry: where do you go to rent a movie, and who gives you your movie recommendations? If you’re anything like me, you look forward to Netflix and food after work. We don’t hit the video store to browse new releases or recommended movies anymore. Likewise, new technology has penetrated the wine industry. Tasting Room’s wine recommendation technology makes informed wine selections for you (based on your preferences, the way Netflix does), and ships tailored bottles to your door—bottles that come with a guarantee that you’ll enjoy them.
Here’s how it works. When you sign up for Tasting Room, you’ll receive a six-bottle tasting kit, which is where the fun begins. Log on to the site and you’re guided through an engaging, interactive tasting where you pit the wines against one another. You simply click on the wines you prefer in the head-to-head match-ups, and based on your ratings, Tasting Room makes informed wine selections for you in the form of Wine Profile. It’s a simple, straightforward guide that points out which types of wine you tend to gravitate towards (in both red and white categories), as well as the regions they come from, and even the foods they pair well with.
Soon thereafter, you’ll receive a 12-bottle case of different wines tailored to match your preferences. The club ships you a case of wine as often as you’d like for about $12/bottle. You can easily customize your shipment date(s), size, and contents on the site. I just keep rating subsequent shipments, and they automatically send me a mix of light dry whites and fruity reds because that’s what I like according to my Wine Profile (and my taste buds). I have yet to receive a bottle I did not enjoy.
Every bottle comes with a satisfaction guarantee, so if you ever receive a wine that doesn’t match your taste preferences, Tasting Room will replace it or issue you a wine credit to purchase another bottle from the extensive – and delicious – collection on the site. It’s well worth it at less than $10 to join (that gets you your tasting kit), and you can cancel at anytime.

YouTube’s new censorship purge BANS videos that talk about illegal immigrants: MORE proof the video platform is an authoritarian cult run by intolerant bigots
06/08/2019 / By JD Heyes
Anyone who crosses into the United States without following duly-passed laws and properly-enacted procedures is in our country illegally. The government’s term for these people is “illegal alien.”
There’s nothing derogatory about it or demeaning or insulting. It’s a legal term, period, and it perfectly describes someone who has not followed U.S. law when entering the country.
Illegal. Alien. Not a citizen. Not from here. Alien. Illegal alien.
But the Left-wing speech Nazis who run social media companies have decided that the term “illegal alien” is derogatory, demeaning, and insulting. And because they say so, then it is, period. No discussion. No argument. No compromises.
Just enforcement of the decision to ban the term. By banning people — conservatives especially — who dare to drop the truth bomb that anyone who isn’t in America legally is an illegal alien.
All white people are being removed from history as revisionists rewrite science, medicine and technology to eliminate pioneers based on the color of their skin
06/10/2019 / By Ethan Huff
In case you haven’t noticed, anti-white racism is rapidly becoming an accepted cultural norm throughout the United States and much of the Western world.
Mainstream entertainment, news, education, and even science and medicine, have all but completely been infiltrated and subverted by nefarious entities that are hellbent on pushing endless, white-hating propaganda and revisionist, anti-white history on the masses – their goal being, well, you can probably figure it out.
It’s suddenly no longer okay to be white in countries where white people are the majority, as the subverters that now control the narrative have successfully brainwashed and indoctrinated a sizable segment of their populations into believing that being white automatically means that you’re evil, and being black or brown automatically means that you’re good.
Using lies and deception as their catalysts for change, these wicked subverters have successfully poisoned the well. They’ve convinced a disturbing number of useful idiots, many of whom are white themselves, that all white people are inherently racist against black and brown people, and have systematically taken advantage of these people groups all throughout history in order to build thriving civilizations.
All of it is a complete lie, of course. But this is what’s being taught to the next generation of “open” minds through movies, television, and in the classroom, with little resistance from guilt-complexed whites, many of whom seem to be accepting the lie that they’re evil because of the color of their skin.
Magic mushrooms could replace anti depressants within five years, says new psychedelic research centre
Exclusive: ‘People on antidepressants long-term say they feel blunted, with psychedelic therapy it’s the opposite, they talk about an emotional release, a reconnect…
Hallucination-inducing drugs like magic mushrooms could be about to break big pharma’s stranglehold on the hugely lucrative market for antidepressants, according to the head of the world’s first centre for psychedelic research.
Antidepressant prescriptions have doubled in England in a decade with around seven million adults taking the drugs, and the global market is predicted to be worth $15.9bn (£12.5bn) by 2023.
At Imperial College London, Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is leading one of the first trials to test how therapy using psilocybin mushrooms, which are currently banned in the UK, compares to leading antidepressants.
While he won’t prejudge the results of the study, he says participants describe a cathartic emotional “release” with psilocybin therapy – the polar opposite of antidepressants, which patients complain leave their emotions, whether positive or negative, “blunted”.
It is the first of many studies planned under the banner of the new Centre for Psychedelic Research at London’s Imperial College.
A large empty floor of the university’s Hammersmith campus will house a bank of treatment rooms that make it the UK’s first psychedelic therapy research clinic, and a “prototype and inspiration” for licensed psychedelic medicine clinics of the future.
Trials of psilocybin in treating eating disorders, and a study of the effects of powerful hallucinogenic DMT on the brain, are already planned following Imperial’s commitment to the centre.

But it is the work on depression where research is most advanced, and most promising.
On the current trial, around 60 participants with moderate to severe depression will receive psilocybin treatment accompanied by a therapy session with a clinical psychologist.
The participants will also be randomly allocated to receive either a placebo or the drug escitalopram, with neither researchers or patients knowing who is in each group.
Escitalopram is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), the drugs which account for the largest chunk of the antidepressant market.
“If you ask people who are taking SSRIs chronically, they often say ‘I feel blunted’,” Dr Carhart-Harris told The Independent, meaning both negative and positive emotions are suppressed.
“With psilocybin therapy they say the opposite, they talk about an emotional release, a reconnection, and this key emotional centre being more responsive.”
The team use MRI scans to study psychedelics’ effects on the brain and the drug appears to reduce activity in the coordinating regions, releasing their grip and allowing the more primitive emotional centres to the fore.
Other early indications are that the list of side-effects is “twice as long” for escitalopram as it is for psilocybin therapy, and it is much faster acting than antidepressants – which can take months to work.
However, the treatment may not be suitable for everyone.
During the therapy sessions, patients are encouraged to follow the stream of the psychedelic experience which can be extremely vivid and may require them to confront past traumas or experiences.
“We don’t call it a ‘bad trip’,” Dr Carhart-Harris says. “We call it a ‘challenging psychological experience’ and we’re honest with people that it can be hellish.
“It can be nightmarish, but we’re prepared for this and this treatment model requires you literally face your demons.”
Psychedelic therapy is unlikely to be suitable for people with psychosis and regulators will need evidence of its effectiveness and safety from clinical trials.
Organisation pushing for psychedelics to be used as anti-depressant
But there is little evidence that they pose a risk of overdose or addiction and that could speed their route to approval.
Fresh magic mushrooms could be picked or bought in shops legally in the UK until 2005, when a change in law closed the loop hole and made them Class A drugs alongside crack cocaine.
“I would imagine if you had some bookmakers doing the odds, there would be strong odds on that [psychedelic therapy] will be licensed sometime in the next five to 10 years – maybe sooner,” Dr Carhart-Harris says.
That could put it on a collision course with powerful interests of the pharmaceutical industry, particularly if trials show psilocybin therapy to be superior to SSRIs
“The implications of that are actually frightening to me, thinking of the power and influence of big pharma,” Carhart-Harris says. “What are they going to do with that if there’s this big public demand for the ‘mushroom therapy’, and not the Prozac?”
While there is a growing trend for “microdosing” psilocybin or LSD, the evidence to date suggests it is the combination of therapy and psychedelic experience that offers the best option of a lasting alternative to chronic antidepressants.
“If you strip the drug away from therapy you start seeing the adverse events that were being reported in the 1960s, when psychedelics left the clinic and became popularised,” Dr Carhart-Harris adds
“None of us want those mistakes to be made again.”
Dr James Rucker is another of those researching the potential benefits of psychedelics, over at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London.
The King’s team are launching two trials, one looking at whether psilocybin therapy can help people whose depression is resistant to treatment with conventional antidepressants.
He says it was “possible” the drug could be licensed in five years. “But only if everything goes to plan, and you know what they say about best-laid plans.”
In Dr Rucker’s mind the process is similar to the approval of ketamine, where the first trials in depression took place in the 1990s and the first ketamine-based medicines are only now being licensed.
Psilocybin has much lower potential for abuse and overdose, but watchdogs will still need stage three trials which haven’t even begun.
“Like all treatments, they will suit some people but not others,” he told The Independent. “The trick, as ever, is trying to work that out before administration. But that trick has proven to be remarkably difficult to pull off, particularly in psychiatry.
“You Are Making a Giant Mistake!” – Trump Warns Tech Giant Twitter on Censoring Conservatives… When Do the Lawsuits Begin?
President Trump warned Twitter again on Sunday to allow First Amendment rights to conservative users.
President Trump: Twitter should let the banned Conservative Voices back onto their platform, without restriction. It’s called Freedom of Speech, remember. You are making a Giant Mistake!
Twitter, Facebook and Google-YouTube have been censoring and banning conservative voices since the 2016 election.
The Gateway Pundit has reported on this extensively over the past few years.
We reported in July 2018 that Twitter has long been accused of censoring conservatives. Twitter evens censors and shadowbans the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s twitter account, @realDonaldTrump.
In July 2018 we reported that a study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter is censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers. Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the same shadowbanning technique.
Twitter is also censoring prominent pro-Trump accounts including: Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Paul Joseph Watson, TGP’s Jim Hoft, TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks and Laura Loomer among others.
In July there was even video proof that President Trump’s Twitter page is being censored.
Gateway Pundit contributor Cristina Laila received a notice in 2018 that her tweet violated Pakistani law.
What the h*ll?
The President has over 57 million followers on his account but rarely does he receive more than 20,000 retweets or 100,000 likes on his tweets.
And a study published at Quillette by Professor Richard Hanania at Columbia University found that Twitter censors conservatives over liberals at a 21 to 1 ratio.
Ultimately Twitter, Facebook and Google-YouTube will face lawsuits for their continued attacks on conservative users.
It must happen.
Nolte: More Lies of Omission Found in Dirty Cop Robert Mueller’s Report
More flagrant lies of omission have been discovered in the Robert Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction), reports the Hill.
“In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence,” writes John Solomon. Solomon adds:
But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.
Why Mueller’s team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller’s Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny.
The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller’s overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. “The FBI assesses” Kilimnik “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” Mueller’s team wrote on Page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.
So during the Obama administration — let me repeat that for the CNN-impaired: the Obama administration — this same Konstantin Kilimnik worked with the Obama State Department and “delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words[.]”
What’s more, according to Solomon, whose work debunking the Russia Collusion Hoax has so far been as vital as it has been beyond reproach, the “FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.”
And yet, Dirty Cop Robert Mueller and his team of partisan Democrats chose — chose — to omit this vital exculpatory context about the Manafort/Kilimnik relationship in their final report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction).
The reason for this is obvious… These dirty cops are not interested in fully informing the public. This is a team of left-wing opposition-researchers out to damage a president they despise, out to make him and those around him look as bad as possible, all in the hope it will lead to impeachment.
And the reason impeachment is the goal is because these dirty cops all know their so-called case against Trump would never in a million years survive in a court of law.
Sadly, this is not the first time this dirty cop sought to deliberately mislead the American people through his report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction).
As Breitbart News reported this week, Mueller deliberately and deceptively edited the transcript of a voicemail left by a Trump attorney to make the voicemail sound as shady and incriminating as possible. The full transcript of the voicemail, however, which Mueller did not want the public to see, left a completely different impression — revealed it to be innocuous.
So what he now has with this latest revelation is still more proof that even though the Mueller Report debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction, it is still a dishonest document constructed by a dirty cop willing to fabricate evidence (by omission) as a means to frame a duly elected president he would like to see impeached.
On top of all this, let’s not forget Mueller’s disastrous press conference last week, where Mr. Straight Arrow arrogantly refused to take questions, arrogantly refused to testify before the people’s representatives in Congress, and was so zealous in attacking Trump, he screwed up big time and had to repair the damage with that humiliating climb-down letter.

Hollywood studios’ demand for round-the-clock abortions reveals demonic sickness and psychopathy of the “entertainment” industry, including Disney
06/04/2019 / By Ethan Huff
The American entertainment industry, which is almost entirely dominated by Leftists, absolutely hates human life. In fact, Hollywood is so anti-human life that nearly every production studio that currently makes films, television shows, or commercials in the state of Georgia is threatening to leave over the state’s recently signed-into-law “heartbeat” bill to protect the lives of unborn human babies from being aborted after their heartbeats become detectable, which is around six weeks gestation.
Hollywood claims that its threats are somehow virtuous because “women’s health” is now supposedly at risk. It’s as though there’s no other way to avoid pregnancy, according to Hollywood Leftists, than to stab an unborn baby in the head, tear apart its tiny limbs, and either dispose of the remains or sell them on the black market to buy Lamborghinis.
It’s just ancient paganism repackaged, abortion being an act of mass sacrifice to the Canaanite god Moloch, which Hollywood and the rest of the Left Cult somehow believes is good and moral. But to everyone else, it’s about as Satanic as it gets to suggest that protecting unborn human life represents “oppression,” and something worthy of economic retaliation.
“There is no higher value in our cosmopolitan overlords’ minds than a woman’s ability to kill her own baby free from any consequence,” writes Chris Menahan for Information Liberation about the absolute derangement of today’s Leftists. “Abortion is their bible, abortion is their religion … Abortion is a religious sacrament.”
The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors
10/28/2017 / By Mike Adams
I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.
“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.
Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

Her Majesty Smiles as Trump Meets British Royals During State Visit
Queen Elizabeth II has welcomed U.S. President Donald J Trump to Buckingham Palace to inspect the royal guards.
The U.S. President and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, were flown to the grounds of Buckingham Palace on Marine One, landing on the West Lawn, where they were met by Prince Charles.
They party was also honoured by two 41-gun salutes fired simultaneously in Green Park, by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, and at the Tower of London by the Honourable Artillery Company.

The President then met the Queen on the terrace, the pair shaking hands and exchanging a few words, with the monarch smiling broadly throughout the exchange.
This is not the first time President Trump met the Queen, having met her during his working visit in July 2018, joining her for tea at Windsor Castle. The Queen, then, appeared to enjoy the company of the President and that of the First Lady.
After greeting each other, the Queen joined Mr President and the First Lady to the terrace for the playing of the British and American anthems, before President Trump was escorted by Prince Charles and a Grenadier officer to inspect the guards assembled for the visit.
The red coated Brigade of Guards are known the world over for their stern role guarding Royal palaces and military buildings in London. While they typically remain silent while on duty, and stay unflinching when members of the public or tourists attempt to interact with them, if addressed by the commander in chief of the United States of America they would certainly have responded.
While the Guards are probably best known to the global public for their ceremonial duties in London, this is actually only a small part of their role as front-line combat troops. Guards have deployed alongside U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, where they were among the heaviest fighting. Grenadier Guard Lance Corporal James Ashworth was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross, the highest British military decoration for valour in the face of the enemy, for his action in Helmand Province Afghanistan in 2012.
After the inspection, the Trumps and Royal Family returned to the interior of Buckingham Palace for a private lunch with the Queen.
Later in the day, the President will take a tour of Westminster Abbey and then meet with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, for tea at Clarence House, and in the evening there will be a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace.
