THE FBI RAID ON TRUMP’S HOME

Monday’s FBI raid on former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home has shocked and angered the former president and has his supporters up in arms. Everyone is wondering what the agents were searching for. So far the speculation from the mainstream press is typically apologetic for the government. Initially they claimed it was over “15 boxes of presidential material” demanded by the National Archives, but admitted in the same story that Trump had already turned over that material earlier this year. Now a supposed “leak” to the Washington Post says it was “nuclear weapons documents” to reinforce the urgency of this raid. That’s ridiculous since just two months prior the FBI had searched through the very room where they brought out this week’s offending boxes of documents. Monday’s raid appears to be a “fishing expedition” to turn up something on Trump. Warrants require law enforcement to show some kind of proof that the evidence they want is at the location at that time and some kind of surveillance is typically used to back up that request—either a wiretap or informant. I suspect the latter. Sure enough, Newsweek scooped this week that there was, in fact, a mole at Mar-a-lago informing the FBI about documents there and where they are kept. Trump has never be good at keeping Deep State spies out of his staff. It is doubtful that this “confidential source” will be revealed when the DOJ unseals the warrant, as Merrick Garland promised yesterday, but one thing is certain, this raid has Trump supporters and even mainstream Republicans fired up and will curry to Trump’s favor unless something seriously damaging to Trump’s reputation comes from it, or, barring that, a criminal conviction sufficient to disqualify him from running in 2024. There is always a danger when agents invade and search a home that they will plant the evidence they a seeking, and this nuclear weapons document idea being floated may be a hint as to what they intend to foist on Trump in order to convict him of a serious crime.

CDC Admits It Gave False Information About COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance

Aug 12, 2022
That statement was false. Clinical trials of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines detected neither myocarditis nor pericarditis, two types of heart inflammation. But by April 2021, the U.S. military was raising the alarm about post-vaccination heart inflammation, and by June 2021, the CDC was publicly acknowledging a link. The CDC previously corrected the false statement but did not say whether its teams had ever analyzed VAERS reports. “In reference to myocarditis abstraction from VAERS reports—this process began in May 2021 and continues to this date,” the CDC spokeswoman said in an email. The CDC has still not released the results of analyses. — The Epoch Times

Florida Man With Concealed Firearm Kills Gunman Who Threatened To "Shoot Up The Crowd"

Aug 11, 2022
West Palm Beach Police said the man refused to drop the weapon after yelling out mass shooting threats, and that was when a 32-year-old man with a concealed weapon license fired his pistol, hitting the armed suspect. The law-abiding citizen immediately called 911 late Sunday night after he shot the crazed gunman. Detectives said the 22-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Instances such as this where a good guy with a gun neutralizes an armed person threatening to kill others tend to be ignored by liberal mainstream media because it goes against the left's narrative of more gun control. — ZeroHedge

Playbook of the Democrat Party — Cloward and Piven

Aug 11, 2022
Cloward and Piven is the Playbook of the Democrat Party. It is the second part of this two-pronged approach: When you don’t have logic or reason on your side, use power. If you don’t have enough power, flood the system to acquire more. Flooding the system was the Cloward and Piven strategy to bring down this country. Create real or phony problems that “require” government actions that begin the process of shifting freedoms from individuals to the State. — Economic Noise

Florida Board of Medicine Moves to Ban Transgender Treatments for Minors

Aug 11, 2022
A pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Quentin Van Meter served as an expert for the state and warned the board that a growing number of children are seeking these treatments of gender reassignment. “This is a giant experiment on United States children,” Van Meter warned the board. Speaking to the board, Van Meter said that Sweden, Finland, and the United Kingdom have “halted treatment” for transgender youths. “They found that there was far more harm than any benefit in allowing these children to receive any kind of medical intervention,” — The Epoch Times

Ring, the company behind the top-selling brand, maintains a vast database on its users and their cameras. Ring is an Amazon subsidiary, thanks to the tech giant's 2018 purchase of the company for over $1 billion.

Aug 11, 2022
As the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol continues its effort to prove allegations of insurrection against former President Donald Trump and his supporters, Capitol Police and House Democrats continue to block all efforts to force the release of all surveillance video footage and emails, which could possibly exonerate those being accused of wrongdoing. Now, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) is citing a United States Code that could legally force the release of that evidence. — The Epoch Times

The FBI has Raided President Trump's Home

Aug 9, 2022
The politics of the search can’t be ignored. If the New York Times is to be believed, Trump’s purported crime - the delay of returning materials that may be classified - could have been resolved in another manner that didn’t involve raiding his home and breaking open a personal safe. No doubt the search is an escalation by a desperate Regime confronted by their own failures at home and abroad. What about the relation of the search to January 6? I’ve gone back and forth as I’ve written this, but it’s certainly possible they were also after documents related to January 6. There are no guarantees, considering the politicization of Biden’s DOJ, which has thus far protected friends in politics, the killer of Ashley Babbitt, supporters in academia, and the President Biden’s own corrupt son. — Techno Fog via Substack

Donald Trump Announces Mar-A-Lago "Raided, Under Siege, And Occupied" By The FBI

Aug 9, 2022
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don't want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. — ZeroHedge

The package includes provisions to address climate change, pharmaceutical costs, and a supercharged IRS. — ZeroHedge

Taiwan Says China's Drills Are Simulating A Full Attack On The Island

Aug 6, 2022
On Saturday Taiwan's defense ministry said it observed Chinese planes and ships conducting attack simulation exercises while operating in the Taiwan Strait. "Multiple batches of Chinese communist planes and ships conducting activities around the Taiwan strait, some of which crossed the median line," it said in a statement. Image: AFP via Getty - Chinese military helicopters fly past Pingtan island, one of mainland China's closest point from Taiwan, in Fujian province. Days ago Chinese state media said the median line - which forms an unofficial border, the other side of which includes Taiwan-claimed waters - has ceased to exist. Government mouthpiece Global Times had also cast the drills as rehearsal for a "reunification operation". For example on Wednesday, just a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taipei, GT wrote "the PLA is completely blockading the island demonstrating the Chinese mainland's absolute control over the Taiwan question." — ZeroHedge
