The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor. The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”
LEFT-WING BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS HAS TRANSFERRED $18 BILLION TO HIS OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS, THE PRIMARY VEHICLE FOR HIS GLOBAL POLITICAL ACTIVISM AND PHILANTHROPY.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The New World Order’s resident villain-in-chief just took his evil scheming to a whole new level with what some are calling the largest cash transfer to a philanthropic organization in US history. And not just any group, but a group whose whole purpose is to sow disharmony and discord throughout our country. The Open Society Foundation is pro-abortion, anti-Israel, and uses race baiting tactics to stir up trouble. Soros spent $33 million to fuel the St. Louis race riots by busing in agitators from out of town. One can only imagine the kind of anarchy that can be created with an $18 billion dollar checking account. And the new civil war just got kicked up a notch.
The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor. The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”
GEORGE SOROS TRANSFERS $18B TO OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATION:
Soros, who is 87, transferred the funds as part of a plan to make sure his activism continues after he retires or passes away. $18 billion is roughly three times the amount of money spent by all parties, in all races, during the 2016 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Though not all of the Open Society Foundations’ activities will be focused on the United States, Soros’ grant easily makes his organization the biggest player on the American political scene.
THE OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK. IN FACT, IT MAY BE THE LARGEST PHILANTHROPIC ORGANIZATION EVER BUILT, WITH BRANCHES IN 37 COUNTRIES. WHILE THE GATES FOUNDATION SPENDS MORE MONEY, OSF HAS A LARGER FOOTPRINT WORLDWIDE THANKS TO ITS MANY LOCAL OFFICES, INCLUDING THROUGHOUT AFRICA. OSF’S BUDGET WILL BE AROUND $930 MILLION THIS YEAR—WHICH IS SUBSTANTIALLY MORE THAN FORD’S TOTAL GRANTMAKING.
GLOBALLY, SOROS IS INVOLVED IN EFFORTS TO MAKE IRELAND PRO-ABORTION, TO DEMONIZE THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, AND TO PROMOTE MIGRATION FROM THE MUSLIM WORLD INTO EUROPE ACROSS OPEN BORDERS.
Though Soros’s foundation was originally aimed at fostering “open societies” as opposed to authoritarian systems, in recent years the foundation’s work has supported dogmatic, aggressive left-wing groups that disrupt liberal democracy and stifle opposing voices. Soros has funded the Black Lives Matter movement and is considering bankrolling the so-called “resistance” to President Donald Trump. He also backs Media Matters, a so-called “watchdog” group that spends most of its energy trying to eliminate conservatives from the media.
Soros recently named former ambassador and Democratic National Committee official Patrick Gaspard as president of the Open Society Foundations as of the end of 2017. source
HERE ARE SOME NOTABLE GEORGE SOROS EXPOSES YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ AND SHARE:
On Monday night in Philadelphia, John McCain offered a total and complete rejection of the world view offered by the leader of his party. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.” “Half-baked.” “Spurious nationalism.” “Tired dogma.”
ON MONDAY NIGHT IN PHILADELPHIA, JOHN MCCAIN OFFERED A TOTAL AND COMPLETE REJECTION OF THE WORLD VIEW OFFERED BY THE LEADER OF HIS PARTY, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
EDITOR’S NOTE: John McCain’s speech shows that he has never been more popular…with the Liberals, globalists, Democrats and all stripes of the Alt-Left, that is. As failing health from a brain tumor brings his 40 year career to a close, a teary-eyed McCain could not resist one more swipe, one more attack, on Trump’s mandate agenda to restore the American government to the American people. McCain and his ilk are not for America, they are for a global government that America serves, funds and bows down to. McCain likes to call himself the “maverick”, but he’s nothing more than a good, old-fashioned traitor to both the Constitution and the country it was written to protect. You end your career as a hero to the Alt-Left Movement.
Here’s the key paragraph:
“TO FEAR THE WORLD WE HAVE ORGANIZED AND LED FOR THREE-QUARTERS OF A CENTURY, TO ABANDON THE IDEALS WE HAVE ADVANCED AROUND THE GLOBE, TO REFUSE THE OBLIGATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND OUR DUTY TO REMAIN ‘THE LAST BEST HOPE OF EARTH’ FOR THE SAKE OF SOME HALF-BAKED, SPURIOUS NATIONALISM COOKED UP BY PEOPLE WHO WOULD RATHER FIND SCAPEGOATS THAN SOLVE PROBLEMS IS AS UNPATRIOTIC AS AN ATTACHMENT TO ANY OTHER TIRED DOGMA OF THE PAST THAT AMERICANS CONSIGNED TO THE ASH HEAP OF HISTORY.”
“HALF-BAKED.” “SPURIOUS NATIONALISM.” “TIRED DOGMA.”
Those would be harsh words coming from any politician about the president of the United States. They are remarkable when you consider that McCain and President Trump are, ostensibly, part of the same Republican party.
GLOBALIST RINO JOHN MCCAIN DENOUNCES TRUMP AND PRO-AMERICAN AGENDA:
What McCain’s speech shows — again — is just how far Trumpism is from the traditional Republican party on virtually every issue. And how much Trumpism represents a break from the ways in which all post-World War II presidents — Republican and Democratic — have envisioned the role the U.S. can and should play in the world.
(Perhaps the most moving part of McCain’s speech was when he recounted attending an event in which George H.W. Bush was commemorating soldiers lost on Dec. 7, 1941; “May God bless them, and may God bless America, the most wondrous land on earth,” McCain recounted Bush saying, with emotion heavy in his voice.)
That McCain is giving this speech isn’t terribly surprising. He has always been someone who fancies himself as willing and able to critique his own party. And, his diagnosis earlier this year with an aggressive form of brain cancer has made him even more outspoken about the problems he sees in the party (and the country).
BUT, SIMPLY BECAUSE MCCAIN IS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF TRUMP IN THE PAST DOESN’T MAKE HIS SPEECH LAST NIGHT ANY LESS IMPORTANT.
Remember what McCain has given to the country. Naval service. Six years as a prisoner of war. More than three decades in public office. Two presidential bids. This is someone who understands at a gut level what this country means — and what it should mean — around the world.
“What a privilege it is to serve this big, boisterous, brawling, intemperate, striving, daring, beautiful, bountiful, brave, magnificent country,” McCain said on Monday night. “With all our flaws, all our mistakes, with all the frailties of human nature as much on display as our virtues, with all the rancor and anger of our politics, we are blessed.”
THAT VIEW OF AMERICA — WHO WE ARE AND WHO WE SHOULD BE — IS AT DIRECT ODDS WITH TRUMP’S VISION.
“Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation,” Trump said in his speech accepting the Republican nomination in 2016. “The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.”
On foreign policy, Trump offered a similarly grim assessment in that convention speech. “The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put America First. Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,” he said. “As long as we are led by politicians who will not put America First, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect.”
In office, Trump has made good on that rhetoric. He has decertified the Iran nuclear deal. He has pulled the US out of the Paris climate accords. At global summits, he has been adamant that the US will no longer write checks to fund the rest of the world.
McCain, in his speech Monday night, was not just rejecting Trump’s dark vision of America and the world but he was seeking to point out how at odds that vision is from how all of the men who came before Trump in the office — at least since the 20th century — saw their job and the country.
THESE LINES, IN PARTICULAR, SPEAK TO THAT DIVIDE — AND THE DANGERS, IN MCCAIN’S MIND — OF PURSUING TRUMPISM TO ITS LOGICAL END. SAID MCCAIN:
“WE LIVE IN A LAND MADE OF IDEALS, NOT BLOOD AND SOIL. WE ARE THE CUSTODIANS OF THOSE IDEALS AT HOME, AND THEIR CHAMPION ABROAD. WE HAVE DONE GREAT GOOD IN THE WORLD. THAT LEADERSHIP HAS HAD ITS COSTS, BUT WE HAVE BECOME INCOMPARABLY POWERFUL AND WEALTHY AS WE DID. WE HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO CONTINUE IN OUR JUST CAUSE, AND WE WOULD BRING MORE THAN SHAME ON OURSELVES IF WE DON’T. WE WILL NOT THRIVE IN A WORLD WHERE OUR LEADERSHIP AND IDEALS ARE ABSENT. WE WOULDN’T DESERVE TO.”
Will other prominent Republicans speak out in support of McCain? Almost certainly not. To date, the only consistent voices of criticism against the rise of Trumpism within the GOP have been McCain and Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Jeff Flake of Arizona. (Of McCain’s speech, Corker said Tuesday: “Well the pieces that I saw, I loved, and I gave him a big hug on the floor.”)
Corker is retiring and Flake is in deep trouble for reelection. Sasse appears, at least at the moment, to be the one whose willingness to stand against Trumpism hasn’t negatively affected his political future.
Regardless of whether other Republicans rise to support him, what McCain is trying to say is of critical import: Trumpism is neither conservatism nor Republicanism. The question is whether that will continue to hold true if no other voices rise to speak out against Trumpism. source
This weekend, in what turned out to be a real instance of fake news, hundreds of thousands of people on social media shared a clip of a little girl telling a man who looked a lot like Donald Trump that he was “a disgrace to the world.” The girl’s sentiments might have been genuine, but her interlocutor was not: she was speaking to the comedian Anthony Atamanuik, in what was one of his recurring Trump-on-the-street segments for his new late-night show, “The President Show,” on Comedy Central.
Atamanuik tweeted this weekend that the scene, which aired on last Thursday’s show, had not been staged, and that the little girl was not necessarily aware that she wasn’t speaking to the real President. Certainly, the resemblance between the two men is considerable, despite the fact that Atamanuik is younger than Trump, with slightly less heft and a markedly different nose. In addition to wearing the expected trappings—wig, self-tanning lotion—Atamanuik has mastered what might be the most important element of a good Trump impression: the imperious forward lean. He recently demonstrated the particular Trump posture to Stephen Colbert, noting, of the President, that “he has no center of gravity,” hence his reported fear of stairs and slopes.
Atamanuik began doing his Trump in 2015, in performances with the improv group Upright Citizens Brigade, and later squared off in mock debates with the comedian James Adomian, who played Bernie Sanders, in a series of live performances and on Comedy Central’s late-night show “@midnight.” As Alec Baldwin’s Trump impression on “Saturday Night Live” gained widespread admiration, Atamanuik’s Trump became the preferred choice among comedy connoisseurs. This, in part, owed to some behind-the-scenes controversy: Atamanuik auditioned for “S.N.L.” in April, 2016, doing his impression of Trump—and, incidentally, of Baldwin—but was not cast. Later, when Baldwin débuted his version, in October, some viewers pointed out that his repeated pronunciation of China, as “Gyna,” was similar to a running gag that Atamanuik had used in his impression. Baldwin, meanwhile, has described his Trump as a nearly spontaneous creation. (In March, the two appeared to feud on Twitter, after Baldwin dismissed Atamanuik as being a “guy on the Internet.”)
Despite Atamanuik’s insider credibility, I was slow to appreciate his impression. He captures Trump’s physical mannerisms, including his odd repertoire of hand gestures, and, in speaking, nails his breathy lower registers, as well as the phrases that he tacks on to the ends of sentences. But he also injects into Trump’s speech an exaggerated shrillness, a pinched whine, that, when paired with the low notes, makes each sentence a broadly comedic seesaw. Trump doesn’t really talk this way, and Atamanuik’s distinctive spin seemed a step too far from the original—a distracting rather than enriching element that showed too much of the performer at the expense of the subject.
Then, on March 23rd, the real Donald Trump welcomed representatives of the American Trucking Associations to the White House and, as part of a photo op for the visit, got behind the wheel of a semi that had been parked on the front drive. There in the cab, hunched over the wheel and yanking on a cord to blow the truck’s horn, Trump looked happier than he has any time before or since as President. As he praised big men and their big trucks, he seemed like a boastful and demanding little boy, whose proud delight in an object might turn suddenly to sad rage if it were taken away from him. Which is to say that he seemed a lot like Anthony Atamanuik’s Trump.
On “The President Show,” Atamanuik has further accentuated his interpretation of Trump as an over-sugared child inhabiting the body of a seventy-year-old man. During the first episode, in his opening monologue, he squealed, like a kid talking about his great summer vacation, about how he “talked to a lady astronaut on the computer.” Later, he exclaimed, “I’m the President! Can you believe it?” (In an odd turn, the real Trump, a week later, during a ceremony celebrating the passage of a health-care bill, said exactly the same thing.) In another segment, after seeing a dump truck on the streets of New York, he prattled on giddily, “Honk! Honk! goes the truck.” In the second episode, he explained why he preferred issuing executive orders: “I get to make people do whatever I want.” Later, he clutched a golden cup that he claimed, without evidence, had belonged to Andrew Jackson—his new, shiny toy. As in most cases of arrested development, this Trump is trapped in a sad purgatory, tormented by whatever long ago made him the incomplete man he is today. In the first episode, after babbling about the dump truck, he imagines driving it into the river. “When I let go, the water fills my lungs, and I’m finally at peace. And only then do I find the complete and absolute solitude that I’ve wanted.”
“The President Show” faces a common challenge for political comedy in the age of Trump: how to be funny and signal honest opposition at the same time. Each episode begins with a monologue by Trump from a mockup of the press briefing room. Then he moves on to a desk piece in the Oval Office, accompanied by his hapless straight-man sidekick Mike Pence (played by Peter Grosz). Later, he does an interview from Mar-a-Lago with a guest. The conceit of these interviews—so far, with Keith Olbermann and Dan Savage—has been that, after clownishly sparring with an opposition figure, Atamanuik, as Trump, will suddenly offer trenchant and wise analysis on a major issue that is meant to be jarring but mostly feels like an applause line for the liberal audience—a wink to let everyone know that the show’s creators are on the right side. The same is true of the show’s final remarks, in which Atamanuik again skewers some policy of the Administration, producing another reliable round of cheering and applause.
Yet the show’s best segments are the pretaped bits, like the one that went viral, in which Atamanuik gets out and blunders among the people, many of whom, either because he looks like Trump or because there are TV cameras following, are seen gawking and taking cell-phone photos. Loosed on the world, Atamanuik’s impression is deliriously funny. And back in the studio, when he riles up the crowd with some Trumpian indecency, and sneers and preens foolishly amid their angry response, his exhilarating impression communicates opposition and contempt all on its own.
(Natural News) Although best known for publishing fake news or being forced give back a Pulitzer prize after being caught committing fake journalism, the Washington Post occasionally stumbles across an actual news story. Over the weekend, the Post published a story that reads almost exactly like Natural News a decade ago, accusing the U.S. Congress of conspiring with drug companies to hobble the DEA by erecting a protection racket for prescription opioid profits.
“In April 2016, at the height of the deadliest drug epidemic in U.S. history, Congress effectively stripped the Drug Enforcement Administration of its most potent weapon against large drug companies suspected of spilling prescription narcotics onto the nation’s streets,” says the article by Scott Higham and Lenny Bernstein. “A handful of members of Congress, allied with the nation’s major drug distributors, prevailed upon the DEA and the Justice Department to agree to a more industry-friendly law, undermining efforts to stanch the flow of pain pills…”
The WaPo story goes on:
The law was the crowning achievement of a multifaceted campaign by the drug industry to weaken aggressive DEA enforcement efforts against drug distribution companies that were supplying corrupt doctors and pharmacists who peddled narcotics to the black market. The industry worked behind the scenes with lobbyists and key members of Congress, pouring more than a million dollars into their election campaigns.
Of course, knowing that the Washington Post is capable of fabricating fake sources out of thin air — as in the paper’s fake news “Russia conspiracy” hoax narrative — we have to take all this with a grain of salt. Also keep in mind that, with this story, the Washington Post is asserting the existence of a massive drug cartel conspiracy involving Congress, drug companies and the DEA.
Ten years ago, I was ridiculed for asserting much the same thing, yet today this news blankets the pages of the Washington Post. Let’s look more closely at the structure of this drug cartel conspiracy the Post says is operating in America today, because as it turns out, WaPo actually got this story right.
Republican lawmakers are front men for Big Pharma’s illicit drug cartel
The Big Pharma opioid drug cartel protection racket was put in place by Rep. Tom Marino, a Republican, says the Post. That same story also names Republican Senator Orrin Hatch as complicit in the negotiation of the final language of the bill. Knowing the extreme dishonesty of the Washington Post’s fake journalism, there were probably all sorts of Democrats involved in this bill as well, but they didn’t bother to include them in the story, since everything the Post publishes is engineered to demonize Republicans rather than report all the relevant news facts.
“The new law makes it virtually impossible for the DEA to freeze suspicious narcotic shipments from the companies,” says the Post. “Political action committees representing the industry contributed at least $1.5 million to the 23 lawmakers who sponsored or co-sponsored four versions of the bill,” the article says, once again refusing to name any Democrats who received money from the drug industry. However, the Post does admit that President Obama signed it into law, adding that “top officials at the White House and the Justice Department have declined to discuss how the bill came to pass.”
Loretta Lynch, former attorney general and now widely known to be a treasonous cover-up artist who secretly met with Bill Clinton before shutting down any prosecution of Hillary Clinton for obstruction of justice (she deleted 33,000+ emails, remember?), “declined a recent interview request,” reports the Post.
The Washington Post runs head first into a massive government cover-up
“The DEA and Justice Department have denied or delayed more than a dozen requests filed by The Post and ’60 Minutes’ under the Freedom of Information Act for public records that might shed additional light on the matter,” says the Post.
When the Washington Post attempted to interview Rep. Tom Marino, his staff called the Capitol Police as a warning to reporters. Blocked at every turn, the Post says it is now suing the DOJ for documents that should have been released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
In other words, the Washington Post, a pro big-government paper that almost universally believes government can do no wrong, is suddenly finding out just how corrupt, incompetent and dangerous a government racket can truly become. When big pharma’s billions of dollars get funneled into the pockets of greedy Washington lawmakers, the health of the entire nation is put at risk while powerful corporations are granted a kind of “legal immunity” while dealing dangerous drugs.
Today, Rannazzisi is a consultant for a team of lawyers suing the opioid industry. Separately, 41 state attorneys general have banded together to investigate the industry. Hundreds of counties, cities and towns also are suing. “This is an industry that’s out of control. If they don’t follow the law in drug supply, and diversion occurs, people die. That’s just it, people die,” he said.
A key reason for the cover-up, of course, is that government officials routinely take jobs with the very same drug companies they previously regulated. Via the Post:
In 2011, Linden Barber left the DEA to join the Washington, D.C., office of the law firm Quarles & Brady. He started a practice representing drug companies. “If you have a DEA compliance issue or you’re facing a government investigation,” he said in a promotional video for the firm, “I’d be happy to hear from you.”
Barber’s move turned out to be a key moment in the struggle between drug companies and the government, but it was far from the only one. Dozens of top officials from the DEA and Justice Department have stepped through Washington’s revolving door to work for drug companies.
The DEA, in other words, quickly became nothing more than an extension of the Big Pharma drug cartel. This is known as a regulatory “captive” structure, where regulatory agencies such as the FDA, EPA, USDA and DEA very quickly become “captured” by the very industry they once claimed the regulate. As Natural News readers know very well, nearly every federal regulatory body has already been overrun by powerful industry interests.
The EPA, for example, is one of the top polluters in America, routinely “legalizing” toxic pesticides and herbicides that poison consumers and the environment. The USDA is a front group for the GMO biotech industry, and the FDA is nothing but a fake science cover for the corrupt, criminally-run pharmaceutical industry. The CDC, similarly, is a fake science front for the vaccine industry.
As far as the DEA goes, the independent media has been publishing stories for years that document how the DEA is running the drugs in America. It’s the DEA that grants certain drug cartels immunity from prosecution, of course, while taking down competing organizations in an effort to build near-monopoly drug cartels. Asset seizure laws also allowed the DEA to profit from taking down drug-running cells that were previously allowed to grow and prosper in order to build up assets that eventually became worth seizing. In effect, the DEA has been running a “drug cartel farming operation” in America.
Now, thanks to the Washington Post’s investigation, we learn that the DEA directly negotiated with the drug industry to grant opioid manufacturers selective immunity from criminal seizure and prosecution. Is anyone really surprised? This has been the DEA’s business model for decades.
The following graphic, published by the Washington Post, reveals that at least 56 DEA and Justice Dept. officials left their government jobs to work for the pharmaceutical industry:
In other words, America has become a narco-pharma state, and the infiltration of government by powerful, drug-dealing corporations is now complete. The drug pushers are running Congress and the regulators. They’re also running nearly the entire mainstream media, which is why independent media organizations like Natural News were a full decade ahead of the Washington Post in sounding the alarm on this sort of collusion. (What the mainstream media is just now waking up to, Natural News already reported in 2007 or earlier.)
Congress keeps medical marijuana criminalized to protect the profits of the corrupt opioid drug industry
Once you fully grasp the depth of collusion between the opioid drug cartels, Congress and the DEA, it’s not difficult to figure out why they’ve all conspired to keep medical marijuana, CBD and hemp extracts illegal at the federal level. The protection racket requires anything that competes with prescription opioids to be criminalized.
It’s all about limiting consumers’ options and funneling them into a life of personal addiction and Big Pharma profits. As long as the money keeps rolling in, federal workers will keep taking jobs with the drug industry, exploiting their contacts and influence in Washington to keep their toxic, deadly drugs flowing into the hands of vulnerable Americans. At the same time, every effort will be undertaken to keep medical marijuana illegal, thereby denying citizens and veterans an affordable, safe and highly effective option for pain control.
It has taken until 2017 for the mainstream media to finally admit all this is happening. The deep state collusion and conspiracy is now finally being covered by the Washington Post and 60 Minutes. Just remember that Natural News warned America about all this a decade ago and was ridiculed for believing in “conspiracy theories.”
Suddenly, it seems, the narco-pharma-government industrial complex is no longer a “theory.” It’s a business model for corporate America.
The NYC-based ANTIFA group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on ANTIFA groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods. According to Far Left Watch, RAM is “an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender.” The militant group recently hosted an “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshop at its branch in Brooklyn, NY.
VIOLENT LEFT-WING ANARCHIST GROUP ANTIFA HAS ANNOUNCED A NATIONWIDE CAMPAIGN TO DEFACE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS STATUES THIS COMING MONDAY.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Try to imagine for a moment the utter stupidity of a group that is using hate to “stop hate”, using violence to “stop violence”, and of course, using fascism to “stop fascism”. That’s ANTIFA. Tomorrow they will launch what they are calling a nationwide campaign to tear down and destroy all statues of Christopher Columbus. They will be easy to spot, just look for a cowardly group of domestic terrorists that look exactly like the KKK, but in black hoods instead of white.
Five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, according to Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.
What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.
The NYC-based ANTIFA group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on ANTIFA groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.
ACCORDING TO FAR LEFT WATCH, RAM IS “AN EXTREMELY MILITANT GROUP THAT ADVOCATES FOR THE VIOLENT REDISTRIBUTION OF PROPERTY” AND FOR “THE ABOLITION OF GENDER.”
The militant group recently hosted an “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshop at its branch in Brooklyn, NY. RAM posted a video called “Against Columbus Day” on the antifa website It’s Going Down, showcasing destroyed monuments across the country and black-clad thugs strutting around menacingly to psycho synth music.
“The battles lines have been drawn and white supremacists are on notice,” the anarchists wrote in a statement on the website. “White nationalist statues are crumbling all over the US as our collective revolutionary power is growing.”
A recent poll showed that the vast majority of Americans support a holiday honoring Christopher Columbus, but RAM called Columbus Day, October 9, “one of the most vile ‘holidays’ of the year.” The group called on supporters “to take action against this day and in support of indigenous people in the US and abroad who have been victims of colonialism and genocide.”
We are calling for groups to “decorate” their neighborhoods as they see fit: put up murals, wheatpaste posters, drop a banner, etc. On October 9th put a picture of your action on social media and use the hashtags below. With these actions multiplied around the country, we will make it unequivocally clear that revolutionaries will always stand with the indigenous!
The anarchists encouraged fellow law-breakers to record and broadcast their crimes by using the hashtags #F*ckColumbusDay and #DestroyColonialism.
As ANTIFA has already announced its illegal intentions well ahead of time, elected officials and police departments across the country should not be blindsided by the rash of vandalism that is sure to come in the next few days. source
(Natural News) In a stunning statement that adds further weight to many of the questions raised by Natural News and other independent media leaders — the only remaining real journalists in America — Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo publicly affirmed his belief that Stephen Paddock did not act alone.
“…[H]e had to have some help at some point,” Sheriff Lombardo is now quoted as saying by the UK Express.
Now, Sheriff Lombardo echoes that very story in saying, “Maybe he was a superhuman who figured this out all on his own but it would be hard for me to believe that.”
This statement affirms exactly what I wrote on Natural News just two days ago, saying, “The only way he could have carried out this shooting is if he were transformed into a human superweapon through a magic wand. I’m calling this ‘Mission IMPOSSIBLE’ because of the physical impossibility of a retired, untrained senior citizen pulling this off.”
The fact that law enforcement is now supporting the contention that Stephen Paddock did not act alone throws a curve ball to the FBI, which claims they somehow pulled of a miraculous investigation that cleared Paddock of ties to international terrorism groups, all in a record time of less than twelve hours. The astonishing speed of the FBI’s announcement confirms they are lying, of course. The FBI can barely complete an office memo in 12 hours, much less conduct an exhaustive investigation into international terrorism in that time frame.
Informed Americans, already suspicious of the FBI’s involvement in allowing Hillary Clinton to get away with committing multiple felony crimes via destruction of her classified emails, are now beginning to wonder whether the FBI is now actively covering up the truth about the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooting.
Caller on the Michael Savage show describes TWO shooters, including one who walked through the crowd, spraying gunfire in every direction
To date, dozens of eyewitnesses have gone public with their belief that multiple shooters were involved, spraying them with gunfire from multiple directions. Earlier today, a caller to the Michael Savage show offered intimate details into her harrowing escape under fire — (and unlike Hillary Clinton, this woman was actually under real sniper fire) — where she was forced to hide while others were gunned down all around her. According to this caller, a second gunman firing a distinctive “low-sounding” gun was walking through the crowd, spraying gunfire in every direction while approaching her concealed position.
There was somebody walking in the crowd, spraying their guns back and forth and shooting people, and he was getting closer. The shots would stop, the officer got up and walked out, and I heard his radio because I was right there, and we heard, “We have active shooters,” and then my officer who was protecting me said, “Where is he? Where is he? Do you see him? Is he behind us? Do you have a visual?
It sounded like somebody was actually walking from the crowd, from west to east, through the crowd and shooting, because everybody was going one direction, because there was no way out. Then they would stop, and there would be higher pitches, and then no sound, and then the sound would start again, and they were on top of each other… they sounded at the same time, and the one that was lower kept getting closer sounding to us… I’m thinking, Oh my God, it sounds like there’s somebody on the ground that is shooting… Mandalay Bay was on our right, and the girl that was standing right beside me got shot straight in her stomach, and how did this bullet come straight down and make a left turn and hit her in the stomach?
Australian man staying in room next door claims “Multiple shooters”
In addition to the audio testimony detailed above, the Courier Mail (Australia) interviewed Brian Hodge, who said he was staying at the room next door to the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock. Via the Courer Mail:
Australian Brian Hodge, who previously worked at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast, claimed he was staying in the room next to the shooter on level 32 at the Las Vegas resort.
There were multiple people dead and multiple shooters. I was just hiding waiting for police to come get us… My floor is a crime scene. They killed a security guard on my floor.
Using the word “they,” Brian Hodge is referring to the multiple shooters, not the police. This is yet another gripping testimony that adds weight to the evidence that multiple shooters were involved.
The FBI, of course, maintains the “lone gunman” theory, almost invoking the same cover-up logic ripped right out of the assassination of JFK. Yet numerous eyewitnesses on the ground continue to speak up with testimonies and firsthand accounts of multiple shooters.
Were you aware the FBI routinely plots mass shooting, bombings and acts of terrorism on U.S. soil?
Few Americans are aware that the FBI actively plots a wide assortment of domestic terrorism scenarios in the United States for the purpose of recruiting targeted individuals into taking part in the plot, then arresting them as “terrorists.” Remarkably, this shocking reality was documented by none other than the New York Times in 2012, which detailed the FBI’s terrorism “sting” operations while asking whether it is appropriate for the FBI to be engaged in the plotting, planning and pseudo-execution of such mass terrorism crimes.
Natural News has also covered the ongoing domestic terrorism plots that are schemed up by the FBI:
This pattern and history of the FBI dreaming up mass terrorism plots in the United States brings up the obvious question: Was the Mandalay Bay shooting actually schemed up by the FBI in an attempted sting operation gone bad? And is the FBI now attempting to cover its tracks to avoid the massive backlash that would ensue if the truth about such a monumental failure were learned? There’s no evidence yet to suggest the FBI planned this attack, of course, but the criminality of former FBI head James Comey — combined with the FBI’s current suspicious behavior and suspicious cover-up — have many people beginning to ask a whole new question: Is the FBI somehow complicit in this heinous crime?
(For the record, I personally know several retired FBI agents who are outstanding individuals, and many agents within the FBI are determined, courageous, pro-America patriots who would never go along with such a nefarious plot. However, as with any federal agency, there are also other sub-groups within the FBI who abuse their power and operate with no such ethics. And there’s no denying the FBI was recently headed by a traitor and criminal cover-up artist named James Comey.)
The FBI is also withholding critical evidence and lying to all Americans
The FBI, of course, is withholding critical evidence, just as they did following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, after which the U.S. government seized all security video tapes and held them in perpetuity, making sure the public would never see them.
Among the evidence items currently being covered up by the FBI and hidden from the public:
Ballistics details about the bullets recovered on the ground. What is their caliber? Are they all the same caliber? How many bullets have been recovered?
Where is all the expended brass that should be on the floor of the hotel room of the supposed shooter? Instead of thousands of pieces of expended brass, the media is so far reporting only “dozens” of pieces of brass. How can a shooter fire thousands of rounds of ammunition but produce only a few dozen pieces of expended brass?
Where is the video that we’ve all been told the shooter took of himself carrying out the shooting?
Where is the rest of the audio from the police breaching the door of Paddock’s room? The audio that has so far been released to the public ends abruptly just as the door is breached. We never hear the actual confrontation between police and Stephen Paddock.
Where is any supporting evidence to prove that Paddock shot himself in an act of suicide? Do the ballistics of the bullet in his head match his own gun? Why do many people suspect that Paddock was murdered and staged as a scapegoat by other military-trained or paramilitary individuals who actually carried out the sustained attack?
What other materials were recovered in Stephen Paddock’s hotel room? The FBI isn’t releasing any details, even though unconfirmed rumors claim that the room was filled with Antifa material. That could be disinformation, but why won’t the FBI confirm or deny it?
Why hasn’t the FBI told us how Paddock obtained his full-auto weapon? Was it self-modified in violation of federal law, or did he acquire it through the complex system involving the ATF, tax stamps and background checks?
Until the federal government starts sharing more details with the public, the real journalists of America — the independent media — will continue to ask legitimate, thoughtful questions about the tragic event that took the lives of 58 innocents. What We the People won’t stand for us being lied to yet again by an incompetent bureaucracy that seems to have been increasingly infiltrated by anti-American operatives who deliberately hide or destroy evidence in order to run their political narratives about the actual motivations behind the shooting.
Not only has America now arrived in an extremely disturbing moment in history where it’s no longer safe to attend an outdoor concert, but most of us have also lost any remaining faith in the FBI to tell the truth. (That credit goes to James Comey, a professional liar and deep state operative who covered up the crimes of Hillary Clinton and Obama regime officials such as Loretta Lynch.)
We pray for the victims of this shooting, and we honor the efforts of local law enforcement, first responders, and all the spontaneous heroes who helped save lives and shield the innocent. Now, we must get to the bottom of what happened, why it happened, and learn how to stop these dangerous, heavily medicated individuals before they strike again. And no, the answer does not involve stripping all the law-abiding citizens of America their Second Amendment rights.
All but one of the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to protest by staying in their locker room, during the playing of the national anthem at this afternoon’s game in Chicago. The lone dissenter was former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva who bucked the team’s decision and took the field, anyway, hand over his heart and helmet under his arm.
All but one of the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to protest by staying in their locker room, during the playing of the national anthem at this afternoon’s game in Chicago.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Take a good look people, this is what an everyday patriot looks like. Someone who has the guts to stand against the opposition and take a stand for what’s right. Alejandro Villanueva knows that standing with your hand over your heart for the playing of our National Anthem is the right thing to do. Taking a knee and disrespecting the country that made you wealthy is the wrong to do. I believe that Colin Kaepernick’s original protest, while misguided, was organic and true. But what we are seeing now can absolutely be traced back to George Soros and his paid agitators. Welcome to Day One of the NFL Boycott.
The lone dissenter was former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva who bucked the team’s decision and took the field, anyway, hand over his heart and helmet under his arm.
On Sunday morning, reports emerged that the Steelers had decided to stay in their locker room despite league rules requiring the team to be on the sidelines during the playing of the national anthem.
By game time, the team did, indeed, fulfill their announced intentions. However, Villanueva defied his team and took the field:
This isn’t the first time the Steelers’ offensive tackle has been at odds with fellow players over anthem protests.
Last year, Villanueva criticized Colin Kaepernick for his protests during the national anthem:
“I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year … when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year,” Villanueva said of the anthem protests.
The Mississippi native has a good reason for his position. He is himself a veteran with three tours of duty in Afghanistan.
Villanueva was a Captain in the U.S. Army during much of his service overseas and now stands at the rank of Major in the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. He was also the recipient of the Bronze Star with “V” device.
Even as he continued his Army career, Villanueva was given several workouts with teams such as the Cincinnati Bengals and the Philadelphia Eagles. He remained unsigned after the Eagles took him off the practice squad, though, until Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin signed him in 2014.
Villanueva is now starting left tackle with a four-year, $24 million contract with the Steelers. source
