Iran Deal – Merkel Bows

Iran’s relationship with Germany, and by default the EU, is precariously preposterously muddled in piddle.   Iran is calling the shots. Iran is denoting the ‘additional’ terms that the EU must follow if Iran is going to continue holding to the Obama terms of the Iran Deal.   And Merkel looks like a wimperton.

Khameini has provided five additional pledges that the EU must incorporate into the Deal or else the deal is off:

  • They will pledge to avoid opening negotiations over Iran’s ballistic missile program or actions in the Middle East.
  • European banks should “safeguard trade” with Tehran.
  • They should continue buying Iranian oil and should, if necessary, also buy Iranian oil the US decides not to buy.
  • They should “stand up against US sanctions” on Iran.
  • They should condemn US for allegedly breaking a United Nations resolution that supports the nuclear deal.

IF the EU does not accept all of the above, Iran will “continue its enrichment of uranium”.   What this reveals is the fact that a renegotiation of the original deal Obama and Kerry drafted, is off the table.   Iran is holding firm. It also reveals that uranium enrichment is and has been a long term commitment in Iran.   Despite the pinky swear that Liberals and Libertarians hold on to feverishly.

By defense, Pompeo has stated that unless Iran renegotiates the deal, they face the strongest sanctions ever stipulated in history.   And of course, that ultimately would include ‘regime change’ by the Iranian people, or by coup.

Like the governments of each and every country across the globe, it is unclear whether they represent the will of The People, or the will of The Government, and Iran is no different.

Unfortunately, trying to access Iranian blogs is much like trying to access German Blogs, repression of the media and censorship reign.

Interestingly, in 2017, a number of prominent Iranians sent Trump a joint letter urging him to ‘keep the Iranian Nuclear Deal’, these prominent Iranians, were all artists, actors, with the exception of one scientist who went to Harvard, the school of ir-repute and Open Societies.

The letter apparently sparked a recourse of dissidents who claimed that the views of these select artists did not represent the will of The People.   And it is upon this Will – that I believe we must focus.   I have met a few Iranian converts over the course of my years, and they have all – without exception – been the best of the best.   Educated, philosophical, and well informed, their voices were subjugated until they came to the states.   Still, they were not of the Liberal ilk wherein they fumed and fret and made a nuisance of themselves demanding this and that entitlement. Instead, they dove into the world of business, and made their mark.

I think too often we lose sight of the diction of the government vs the diction of society. It is easy to see it in our own country, but when a country is demonized, too often, we marginalize the people as well. It is and has been the fate of Syria, of Yemen, of Russia, of Germany, of the US, and of Iran.

Oddly, we are quick to understand there are good cops and bad cops, good politicians and bad politicians, good actors and bad actors, and yet when the media wants to indoctrinate an agenda, the evil is profoundly – all.

And without the proper guides, the People – believe.

If we were to impose that same way of thinking upon the US, we would assume that all women were just like Hillary, all men were just like Epstein, and all others were – deplorables. We don’t accept that here, so why in the world would we accept that anywhere else – including – Iran?

Maybe, just maybe, Khomeini is as lauded there as Obama was here… just a thought.

Obama and Kerry: Negotiating with Global Leaders

While the press is fixated on personal jabs at Trump, McCain at personal jabs at Trump, there is a rumbling beneath the surface that is growing exponentially.   Despite the fact that Obama is no longer president, he continues to act as though he is meeting with foreign dignitaries across the globe from the presidents of China to India to France, to Germany, to Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan to the infamous Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam.  

John Kerry is also making world tours under the guise of his former status as Secretary of State, most importantly meeting with heads of state in Iran.   Kerry is also running around the globe speaking at the UN as the US representative while fomenting division as he speaks with France’s Macron, with the European Union foreign policy chief, and with Germany’s president, Steinmeier.  Coincidentally, today Steinmeier (who rarely comes out of the proverbial closet to offer an opinion on anything) made front page news as he slams Trump for alienating what was formerly known as the ‘global community” and for not backing the Iran deal…

Simultaneously, Michelle Obama is making tours representing herself as the ‘forever First Lady”, and Hillary is raising money across the globe purportedly in the guise of book tours.

Theories circulate as to the radical flurry of these comrades-in-armswho seemingly are securing their place, their name, their power – as a potential transfer of power underlying the rumbling in the US White House.   Impeachment or coup, they are desperate to secure their grab of righteous authority.

But these trolls of the White House are losing ground as Trump continues to drain The Swamp and reveal the corruption that has plagued our government for decades.   A bitter war is being fought as we stand idly on the sidelines.   Most of The People are completely unaware of the magnitude of this purging.   Most are not privy to the layers upon layers that have slowly been built only to find that as one layer is uncovered and displaced, ten more are revealed.

It is interesting that despite these revelations, many within even the conservative ranks and Libertarian ranks, are still unsatisfied.  As though it isn’t ‘enough’, it isn’t ‘fast enough’, it isn’t enough players…   They speak with the same entitlement and impatience that one would normally expect from within the Liberal Democrat ranks.   Perhaps it is simply a societal anomaly of everything must happen immediately without the business and political insight of rules of order, of cause and effect, and of thorough research and investigation.

While Kerry’s actions of colluding with the ‘enemy’ are categorically illegal under the Logan Act, Obama continues to traverse a skimming line that is carefully announced within the vein of Foundation work – much like the Clinton Foundation skimming that was regurgitated just a year+ ago.   But given there were no real consequences paid by the Clinton’s for their corrupt funding, Obama has nothing to preclude him from playing the same game.

At least not – Yet.  

Honduran Caravan to US – MS13: Build The Wall!

A group of 1000 to 1500 migrants from Honduras are making a caravan trek through Chiapas Mexico upward to the southern border of the US where they plan to riot their way onto American soil.   While the media portrays them as young children and mothers, videos have surfaced that are much more disturbing and give an accurate account of the gruff men looking for trouble.   While Mexico has turned a blind eye, those US citizens on the border, and border guards, are anxious.  It is complicated.

There are some women and children – but I imagine they are mostly being used as live shields for the disbursement of gangs who are knowingly banding together with the purpose of fighting their way inside.   These are not nice, sweet, children just looking for a better way and begging for help.

Funded and organized by Pueblos Sin Fronteros (they are NOT affiliated with the US Christian group – People Without Borders), their website is vacant of information, but it has been determined that they are funded by George Soros and operate out of San Diego. In 2015 they partnered with Southern People’s Initiative through Project South.   An anarchist organization, their affiliations have included Project Vote, Brennan Center For Justice, ACORN, AFL-CIO, and Civil Liberties and Public Policy, a group fighting for abortion rights.

What this reveals is a well funded, well organized, well crafted protest that is grafted within an Obama/Hillary/Soros agenda to create chaos and undermine anything and everything civil.  Their Twitter feed hails the coverage provided by the New York Times as helping to fuel their agenda and propagandize them as sweet dreamers.

Buzzfeed would appear to be their feedline to the media as journalist, Adolfo Flores, follows their trek through Mexico tweeting and reporting on their progress, and aiding in their movement north with encouragement and supplies.   All the related organizations;  Project South, Southwest Workers Union, University Sin Fronteros and Pueblos Sin Fronteros claim to be working to educate low income people regarding politics… and wealth redistribution.  The slogan adopted by board member, Dr. Rose Brewer, is “Another world is possible, another US is necessary.”

It just can’t be created without changing the current demographics in the US, hence the necessity of immigration.

https://www.facebook.com/netargv/videos/vb.1050140295115110/1489398937855908/?type=2&theater

The above link demonstrates the participants are not women and children, but mainly adult men.   But it isn’t the first ‘caravan’ of immigrants from Honduras and El Salvador attempting to force entry.   Another caravan turned into a riot mob throwing rocks and using children as shields as they fought Border Agents attempting to dispel the chaos.  A 14 year old boy was shot and killed in the ensuing melee.  In this instance the mob was coming through Juarez, a town that has fallen into the bloodbath of gangland territory.

But the question is begged, will this mob descending on San Diego use women and children as bait and shields to charge the border?  And will the military deployed by Trump be able to defend the border without issue? I doubt it.  But that is part of the point, to create a death that then becomes the focus and sets a precedent for dissuasion of using force.

The NGO’s supporting the caravans claim that the immigrants have an inalienable and humanitarian right to cross our border without due process.   Unfortunately, the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a Soros operation, is funding the legal access amid claims of humanitarian rights.

A Few Facts:  Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world.  It supports and avoids criminalizing sexual violence.   Its per capita income is roughly $600.   And 66% of the population live below the poverty line.   In 2010, 617,392 residents in the US identified as Honduran, which might be defined as ‘legal’.  The number of illegal Hondurans is unknown and estimates range from about 300,000 to 500,000.   Foreigners are routinely kidnapped for ransom.  Drug trafficking is rampant.  Honduran gangs solicit members by offering membership or death.  MS13, the most violent and prolific gang in the US is comprised of members from Mexico, and Central America, including; Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. 

TRADE WAR: TTIP and The Global Agenda

Isolating the UK from trade with Russia and the US means they become a groveling dependent of the EU.

Obama openly declared in 2016 that there was absolutely no way that the US would open trade with the UK because the EU took precedence.

EU Council President, Donald Tusk, believes this is the perfect time to reintroduce TTIP claiming that it will solve all the tariff issues within the EU, UK and US…

TTIP is the largest ever trade initiative ever negotiated or proposed – and its contents are completely ‘classified’ we the public have no right to know what it involves, we are told how great it will be and how economically productive. What we do know comes from leaked documents which establish as a goal, universalism. This would mean that the US would effectively become an EU state subject to EU laws, regulations, banking and insurance restrictions at the discretion of a universal EU appointed Tribunal.

One of the more threatening aspects of TTIP is that it gives corporations power over nations. A corporation could sue a nation for failing to perform according to the corporate standards. As such, nations and their governments would be squeezed out and corporate CEO’s would become absolute powers.

In 1933, Musolini declared that he envisioned a corporatism world in which the state governments ‘serve the corporations’.   Renamed Globalization, the concept was later re-introduced by Democrat, George Ball, who claimed that nation states and sovereignty were obsolete. A founding member of the Bilderberg Group, Ball and Rockefeller have been active proponents of creating this new corporate sovereign rule.

TTIP fills this Communist agenda.

Most of the staid countries within the EU are aligned with the Socialist Party.   A shift by the Eastern Bloc toward a more nationalistic view has been infesting the landscape and disrupting the rule of order.   Alienating the UK from trade partners including Russia and the US would have the effect of hitting them where it most hurts in BREXIT and bringing them to their proverbial knees – once again.

Macron’s “En Marche” party was supposedly inspired by Obama, but that would mean that Obama was more than a puppet. In fact, the corporate elites have been behind Italy’s Five Star Movement as well as En Marche as they devised a methodology of moving from Socialism to Communism through Media propaganda.   Thus the New Centrist, is really Communism in disguise.

Before Macron was a “Centrist” he was a Socialist.   Before Merkel was a Democrat, she was a Socialist.   Italy, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Norway, and Switzerland are entirely Socialist.   Giving way to the Rand philosophy of Corporatism is a natural evolution.

In the meantime, Soros has made a fervent call to the EU to regulate social media content, and censor dissenting views… although in his terms it is to “fight populism”.   But wait! The Definition of Populism is: A political philosophy to support the rights and power of the people in their struggle against privilege elite.  

And no one noticed. Censorship on a multinational level is in line with Communism.

BREXIT gave rise to multi-level problems with trade, communism, and the fight against sovereignty.   Trump aggravated the agenda.   Putin was already considered an enemy of the globalization movement when he issued an arrest warrant for Soros and banned all his NGO’s from Russia.

Reeling in each country meant isolating them from trade. Trade was the tool.

So, has Trump inadvertently leaped on the trade band wagon – or is he establishing his own negotiating tactics.

In the end, the script is rather well written.   And the players perfectly cloned. But there are a few good men… and I think I’ll place my trust in them.

British Double Agent Poisoned by Russia?

Another Russian spy story has emerged with the media using the event as fodder for a James Bond movie replete with evil Russians, poison, vendetta’s, and treason that isn’t treason because treason is only treason when it is any western country, not when it is in – Russia.

An interesting split.

The propaganda surrounds a double agent who worked for M16 and Russian intelligence in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Having been swapped out in 2010 under the Obama administration for Russians held in the US, the agent paid cash for a house in Salisbury under his real name and led a rather ‘ordinary’ retired life.   Supposedly.

He was found in the park with his estranged daughter, Yulia, who resides in Russia, both seemingly poisoned. The UK intelligence division has claimed the agent used was a nerve gas and are looking into their belief that Putin called the hit.

Two oddities appear quite glaring:   1) Putin is not an idiot. Why would he jeopardize his candidacy for President less than 2 weeks before the election when the traitor has lived leisurely and openly in Salisbury for 7 years?   2)   The Guardian has revealed that the Russian double agent was friends with ‘someone’ connected to Fusion GPS and the Faked Trump Dossier.

What we do know is that Clinton was the frontrunner in the botched fake dossier, and blames her election loss on everyone – including Putin.   Sabotaging the election with attempted murder is more in line with the tactics employed by those responsible for the murder of Seth Rich…   Or those responsible for election rigging, busing in illegals, having voters vote twice, those guys.

It will be interesting to note how quickly UK police and M16 work to solve this case and directly implicate Putin, all the while they still seem unable to solve the ongoing investigation into the sexual assault of hundreds of thousands of children during the 1980’s by politicians, entertainers and sports figures…

So here is the ‘evidence’: the daughter has been estranged at least since her father’s imprisonment in 2006. Suddenly she shows up in Salisbury and she and her father are poisoned. Skripal was considered friendly given he said ‘hello’ if you walked past him. Many people came and went from his residence, according to neighbors. He drove a BMW, and paid cash for his residence in Salisbury shortly after he was traded in the spy exchange 2010. During his double agent tenure, he gave up a number of undercover Russian agents to the Brits. He was ultimately accused and sentenced for treason in Russia for his double agent status in 2006.  And newly stated, ‘he was friends with some unnamed person who worked for Fusion GPS’.

The facts are not uncontested that he was a double agent who shoved a number of his Comrads under the bus.

The UK is not without its very odd history in which M16 agents are found dead and routinely m16 either denies they were agents, and/or recreates the scene of death to promote a bizarre sexual escapade gone bad.   In fact, there are 17 such cases that remain outstanding despite the intelligence community being oh so very – intelligent.   Apparently, that intelligence does not transfer to these bizarre deaths given that M16 may be either involved or in collusion: Gareth Williams found inside a gym bag – was ruled a sexcapade. Jonathon Moyle was found hanging naked in a wardrobe with a pillowcase over his head – was ruled a sexcapade. Stephen Milligan who was found dressed in suspenders and tied to a chair with an electric cord around his neck – a sexcapade.   James Rusbridger found wearing a chemical suit and gas mask hanging from a beam in his own home – sexual strangulation. Nicholas Hudson was found wearing a bra and a nightie – a sexcapade. Kevin Allen, Steven Drinkwater, the spies who came in from the cold of the UK turned up dead.

There was no inquest. There was no intelligence gathering. There were never any arrests or inquiries or much of anything despite these men giving their lives for their service…

In 1916 in the UK, “fifteen” participants in the Easter Rising in Ireland were shot by firing squad for treason.

The Spy Business is rife with treason, double agents, corruption, murder, assassination, etc… from every country, across the globe.   It is not the James Bond persona of the movies, it is a commitment in which you and your family are subject to the wrath of your government.

Was Russia and by default Putin involved in the recent Sarin gas poisoning of Sergei Skripal?   Sarin is stockpiled by the US and Russia although it is believed to be in the hands of Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Libya, North Korea and Syria.   If a person is exposed and survives for several hours afterward, they will likely recover from the poisoning.   There are two antidotes available. Exposure is most often caused by inhalation, although skin contact is also possible.

In order for Sergei and his daughter to be poisoned, the inhalation would be via vapor outdoors. Given that the vapors are highly toxic, if a person would administer such, they would have to be wearing a gas mask to protect themselves from absorbing the fumes.   A person walking in a park with a gas mask would be rather noticeable – as far as suspects go…

Once again, the rhetoric is more like Swiss cheese and British porridge, full of holes and lumpy.  

But the aim is quite obvious.   Interfere in the Russia elections…

Guns and Homicides – World Statistics

Gun ownership around the world is not exactly what has been presented by the media and Facebook memes. For example, I recently was spirited a meme that talked about how Canada and Australia are gunfree, guns are illegal, the US should follow their lead because they don’t have mass shootings… But that simply isn’t the case.

  1. 30.8% of Canadians own a gun
  2. 24.1% of Australians own a gun

While that ratio in the US is 100%, the argument fails because there is no correlation that ‘more guns’ = ‘more shootings’, the correlation is much more complicated.   For example; Mexico’s gun rate is 15% – but their murder rate is 6.34 per 100,000 population or nearly double that of the US.   In Serbia nearly 38% of the population own guns, yet their homicide rate is .61, or 10% of Mexico’s. Iceland has a gun rate over 30% and no homicides by guns.

So what are these countries doing that is right and wrong?   What other factors give rise to the problem? If we truly wanted a ‘solution’ wouldn’t it make sense to analyze their strategies instead of making a false correlation that has an obvious ‘agenda’?

In Iceland the recent introduction of foreign gangs has been the predominant driver of crime. As a result, the police and government routinely follow guidelines which include immediate deportation and the exclusion of visiting support elements such as friends and family members. But Iceland also has a relatively low to non-existent drug use problem, that is until more gangs began moving into town bringing with them prostitution and human trafficking as well. As such, the crime rate schematic has changed to reflect the growing menace of gang warfare.

With over 1.5 million gang members in the US, representing 33,000 different gangs, we have 32,990 more gangs than Iceland.   In March 2017, Mexico had 2020 homicides – all gang/cartel related. Serbia has a history of Mafia gang connections involved in protection rackets, smuggling, drugs, burglaries and arms trafficking. But they don’t have ‘rival’ gangs.

When making statistical comparisons, it is important for the reporting country to be ‘honest’.   In 2011, the German government claimed the murder rate was .8 per 100,000 when in fact the police department claimed it was 2.7.   Germany routinely would seem to ‘manipulate statistics to provide a view that is a false narrative’.   FYI: a recent poll purportedly shows Merkel’s advanced favoritism over Trump – when in fact her ratings are lower than Trump’s ever were in the US – below 30%!

In addition, the gangs in Germany are also predominantly Mafia related including; the Arab Mafia, composed of 7-9 Arab Families, the Albanian Mafia, which controls billions in banks and real estate, the Russian Mafia, which is mostly composed of Aussiedlers, ethnic Germans that were born in the Soviet Union, as well as Turkish organized crime, Middle Eastern Clans and a spattering of motorcycle gangs.

Many of these gangs are fairly new to Germany, specifically the rise of Turkish and Afghanistan populations dominant in Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. According to Die Welt, Arab Families control most of the organized crime and solve disputes internally. As such the statistics of these Mafia’s are not includable in the government statistical accounting.   Currently, most of these Mafioso gangs have established territories and disputes are not common, however, mass immigration is triggering a shift and bloody battles

According to Transparency International, political parties and businesses are the most corrupt institutions in Germany with 11% of respondents admitting to have been asked to pay bribes.  So is Germany a false narrative of goodness?

Despite these numbers, in 2014 the German police identified only 9155 suspected gang members…   or 1,490,845 less than we have in the US.

So while ‘gun related deaths’ is somehow the topic of choice, statistics reveal that in the US roughly 67% of gun related deaths are suicide, 72% of gun deaths were committed with a handgun, mass shooting in the US tripled during the Obama administration, and 60% of mass shooters identified in the US since 1900 were carried out by people diagnosed with a mental illness or who demonstrated significant mental illness prior to the shooting.

Is it a gun problem? Or is it a gang problem? Or is it a drug problem, a mental problem, a PTSD problem, a corruption problem, who killed Seth Rich problem… What we do know is that suicide tops the list, handguns are the weapon of choice, and a conflaguration of ailments contribute to the Fall.

So. Are we looking to find a solution?   Because it would seem that the overwhelming evidence for homicide growth is always targeting – Gangs. Here, in Europe, in Iceland, in Australia, in Canada. What creates gangs? The desire for money with an absolute vacancy of ethic or morality.   What creates a vacancy of ethic and morality? Values. Who should instill values? Parents. Who is instilling values? The state. The media. Hollywood.  

Gun Control Politics – Again…

How much does a protest march cost? Apparently quite a lot because 17 year old Cameron Kasky has rather quickly organized a March in DC to fight gun rights and so far has raised:   $500,000 from Spielberg, $500,000 from Katzenberg, $500,000 from Clooney, $500,000 from Oprah, and upwards of $1 million on a GoFundMe page that has been up for 3-4 days!   Quite a haul! All of the donors were heavy weights in the Obama and Clinton camps. Katzenberg came under an SEC investigation that claimed he had bribed Chinese officials with Joe Biden.

Kasky is joined by David Hogg, who has also made himself a personal spokesperson for anti-gun ownership, anti-NRA, anti-Trump.   Their solution? Ban all guns.

Kasky set up his Twitter account February 18th. He now has over 78,000 followers.   Hogg, about the same, (I imagine – the same followers). Their “Political Organization” (as per their Facebook page) is called March For Our Lives, donations are not tax deductible, they have a Twitter account, a Facebook account, Instagram page and a website.  WHEW!

They have utilized the disgraced former DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz to help promote their campaigns including the upcoming nationwide March 24th protest.   They are also supported by Florida Senate member, Lauren Book, who ran unopposed for the District seat because it was a ‘redistricted’, newly created seat. This is her first political experience.

In 2016, Eric Holder and Obama created the National Democratic Redistricting Committee in order to extend the number of potential Democrat seats by the next election given Trump won the majority in the 2016 election.  And that wasn’t fair.

Reading the Twitter feeds and Facebook feeds, the commentary demand that anyone whose opinion is not aligned be ‘blocked’. Others claim that anyone who disagrees must be a Russian Troll.   And still others believe that everyone is a Bot. One person went so far as to state that freedom of speech was for the government, but didn’t apply to them.  OUCH!

While their pain and fear is shared by everyone, their solution is not.   And while the publicity is aligned with the students attempting to change gun laws, the laws are not and the facts are not. When lobbying for change, it is best to have truth and facts to support your argument.   These students are naïve, but because they are students, they have managed to rally hearts behind them. Statistics? Not so much.

Media outlets have vilified conservatives who challenge some of the oddities in the student organization – the most obvious being the scripted reading by Hogg. However, the idea that a group of underage teen-agers would be in charge of $3,000,000 (and growing) donated via Facebook from highly public democrats is a bit startling… if not wholly lacking in legality.   I seriously doubt that Clooney, Oprah or Speilberg would hand over that kind of money without a league of adult lawyers managing it’s use.  So obviously, there is much more lurking in the background than we are privy to.

It’s also rather interesting that the March 24th protest was scheduled in DC seemingly without going through the ‘elaborate’ permitting system which requires Homeland Security approval, Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs approval, Metropolitan Police Department approval, Fire Department approval, as well as a sit down to discuss specifics with the police.  Who did all that?

In addition, it is common for opposing groups to petition for simultaneous permits, which we have yet to hear about.

George Soros’ Media Matters has taken the student movement to the highest degree of propaganda.   The Women’s March organizers are also behind the March 24th protest whose goal was to raise $2 million for the 2017 protest which would pay for porta-potties, security and bus parking. The March For Our Lives is backed and funded by Bloomberg’s, Everytown For Gun Safety, a nonprofit which advocates for gun control. In 2015, their reported revenue was shy of $40 million. According to their 990 for 2016, they spent $1.8 million on actual grants – 4.5%of total revenue, most of which went to three organizations: Mainers For Responsible Gun Ownership, Nevadans for Background Checks, and Oregon Democracy Fund.

Oregon Democracy Fund was created in 2015, has no known website or data. They are a 501©(4) organization which is not considered charitable and may not be written off as a charitable donation, rather they are a business expense registered as a Social Welfare organization. Therefore, Everytown, which is a charitable nonprofit, makes grants to Social Welfare organizations that are not charitable nonprofits, but rather lobbying organizations. Both the Mainers and the Nevadans organizations, also 501(c)(4)’s, are linked back to Bloomberg.

Thus, it would appear that his grant making is simply to support his own lobbying organizations. In addition to the “grants”, Everytown spent roughly $2.4 million on political lobbying and gave funds to politicians.

For Every Season, turn, turn turn… there is always a back story.

Guns; Mass Shootings; And Mental Health

Mass shooting.   The first recorded as such in the US was in 1949 when in Camden, New Jersey a 29 year old Howard Unruh walked calmly through his neighborhood and shot and killed 13, wounding another 3. He was diagnosed as criminally insane. He used a German Luger that he obtained as a WWII veteran.  

In 1968 Charles Whitman, a Marine trained sharpshooter struggling with violent tendencies shot his mother, and his wife among 12 others, and injured an additional 31 people using an arsenal of weapons including semi-automatics, a Luger, and a Magnum. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

In 1982 George Banks shot and killed 13 people including 5 of his own children and their mothers. His lawyer plead insanity stating that he was a victim of racism because of his own mixed racial identity.

In 1984, James Huberty announced to his wife that he thought he might have mental problems. He had a history of domestic violence. Three days later he shot 41 people in McDonalds, 22 died.

Since those shootings nearly 300 people have died in 19 separate events as a result of deadly mass gun violence perpetrated by a lone gunman who had mental illness or by terrorists.  The weapons ranged from semi-automatic rifles, to handguns, to the use of multiple guns as in an ‘arsenal’.

THIRTEEN Presidents have served in office during this time frame.   Eleven of these 22 shootings, 50%, occurred during Obama’s reign.   253 people died during Obama’s reign as a result of mass shootings and he did nothing to change or quell these atrocities.   But somehow this is the fault of Trump and the NRA…

While there remain the naysayers who believe that mental health is not a causal factor, the statistics simply do not support this defense.   In fact, the statistics overwhelmingly do provide this fact or Truism as a core commonality.   However, while creating a mental health database for the purchase of guns may hinder or slow the ability to purchase, black markets will always abound, and as Sweden has newly discovered, perpetrators will simply find a new weapon of choice – hand grenades and bombs, which are apparently quite plentiful.

Mental health in the US is an abysmal statistic. It is believed that 20% of the US population has some degree of mental health issue with 50% suffering co-occurring substance abuse. 11.2% of youth suffer from severe depression.   And the over-whelming majority “Choose” to not seek help.   Not because it isn’t available, but because they don’t want to.

Perhaps a better query would be to ask why the US is host to so many with mental health issues?

In 2004, “the most common primary diagnostic groups were depression (27.8%), schizophrenia (19.5%), bipolar disorder (19.4%), alcohol use disorder (11.6%), and drug use disorder (11.1%), with other psychiatric disorders accounting for the remain- ing 10.5% of hospitalizations.”    Prior to the infamous Obamacare, 53% of the total medical cost was assumed by Medicare and Medicaid, the remainder was covered by public health insurance – according to Premier Perspective Community Database. This would mean that Obamacare has had no relative benefit in reducing uninsured from seeking psychiatric help.

In the 1950’s and 1960’s, anxiety was the most common disorder. Miltown was the first mass produced drug distributed to inhibit anxiety and was prescribed as a tranquilizer writing a phenomenal 500 million prescriptions.   With the advent of Valium, 20% of all women and 8% of all men reported taking this new and improved tranquilizer in the 1970’s and the term anxiety was replaced with ‘depression’.

Between 1987 and 1997, the psychiatric community increased their diagnosis of depression by 300%.   A boon to the pharmaceutical industry!

Today, most treatment for mental health disorders is- a prescription.   A person may request treatment without the use of drugs, but this is quite uncommon and most psychiatrists are rather pushy in demanding drug administration.  The causes are left unfettered, and the symptoms are masked by drugs.

In 2015, there were 130 people killed in mass shootings in France by semi-automatic weapons despite a nearly complete ban on such guns.   In 2016, Ali Sonboly killed 21 people in Munich at a McDonalds. He was under psychiatric care for depression. He was said to have been severely bullied at school.  Germany has very strict gun laws.

And while there is a meme circulating that demands more psychiatrists in schools, more teachers, more counselors, more nurses, more tolerance, more more, it is so incredibly unrealistic and serves no real purpose in providing a true solution.   The core commonality of most mass shootings is mental health (outside of terrorism) whether in the US or abroad.   Among youth, school bullying is by far the most prevalent cause.  Medicating society has been the solution according to Big Pharma.  While Pharma has prospered on this notion quite lucratively, society has suffered.

The last gun law passed by the Federal government expired in 2004.   Since then, two sitting Presidents have done absolutely nothing.   Trump has stated that he will be researching ways to better monitor background checks for mental illness, but it is a difficult path with many barriers, the most obvious of which is – privacy and HIPPA. Civil Rights lawsuits would hugely impact the ability of background checks to include medical records.   And while Israel has been cited as a model, a behavioral assessment is required in order for a person to own a gun.

Still the media cites guns and Trump as the culprit while Obama gets a pass, HIPPA is ignored, and the estimate that only 15% of firearms used in an illegal act were legally obtained, is not addressed.   

In view of the ‘death threats’ promulgated by multiple Hollywood entertainers, their mental health would most certainly qualify them for prohibition… community service, and fines.  Right?

Mueller’s Pathetic Indictment

Hundreds of thousands of dollars later, thousands of wasted hours later, thousands of derisive media articles later, the Big Indictment is basically for “Trolling”. There are literally thousands upon thousands of trolling operations around the world, sourced in every country with little to no exception.   And, by itself, trolling is not even illegal in the US unless it involves harassment, bullying or stalking.

Worse – these same Trolls named by Mueller were outed by Buzzfeed four years ago!

After all the obsession, after all the derision, after all the vilifying, the best our esteemed CIA Director with visions of a beheaded Trump could do, was rehash what was already hashed four years ago… The absurdity is beyond comprehension given they had to know exactly what they found from the beginning and spent all this time creating innuendo without a lick of evidence.

Trolls have been a source of angst for over two decades dating to the 1990’s when they were referred to as Usenet “flame wars”.   Sometimes they are well organized, and sometimes they are kids.

What did this mean, nasty company do that was so heinous? They posted comments and ads that supported their belief and/or opinion. I guess that would mean that The New York Times and Washington Post are really just “Trolls”.   The group Anonymous is considered a troll given their anonymity. The largest in the US is 4chan which was developed in 2003 by Christopher Chan who was 15 at the time.   The Daily Stormer is another large US based site trolling in favor of neo-Nazi ideals.

Hackers, trollers, faceless commentators, they are the internet frenzy, and most people can easily recognize them and move on.   But if presenting an ad or an opinion that is in contrast to someone else’s is considered ‘trolling’ then free speech is eliminated, it is dead. A fine line needs to be developed that defines what is legal and what is not.

Mueller’s indictment charges that the Russian Trolls intended to incite discord and undermine public confidence in democracy.   If inciting discord is illegal then I would imagine just about very media outlet, including The View, would qualify for an indictment.   The ‘operation’ utilized social media… well Hollywood has systematically called for the beheading and death of Trump and Pence… Why haven’t they been indicted?

And then there is humor: The most notable bad guy in the organization is Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, a wealthy Russian who used to run a fast-food stand! GASP!   How dare he!   Some of their more corrupt slogans included: Vote Republican, Vote Trump, and Support The Second Amendment!   OH MY GOSH!

They organized protests… spent thousands of dollars over a few months… and criticized Hillary Clinton…   Imagine the audacity!

Election Manipulation, or vote rigging, is “illegal interference with the process of an election, whether by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both.”  Mueller’s report contends that this DID NOT occur.   Therefore, nothing illegal occurred.  It was an entire wasted debacle of disingenuous, vilifying, stupidity for the sake of an agenda put forth by George Soros because his candidate lost and he’s a sore loser.

Mueller has mud on his face. His 37 page Indictment comes with no arrests. The only illegal charge that appears to have been mustered in the Indictment is the charge that some of the trolls utilized fake driver’s licenses and stolen identities. One man has admitted to this charge, Richard Pinedo, an American from California, who claims his assistance in re-establishing identities was innocent, but he is guilty of doing it.

Somehow the mainstream media seem to think that this Mueller indictment is a spectacular success.   But in reality the only success is the arrest of one American.   Because the Truth is – nothing in the indictment really shows manipulation any more than every media outlet, every blogger, every person doesn’t have the right to do – have an opinion and express it.

Trump is exonerated. Sanders is implicated. And Hillary’s $1.2 billion campaign is somehow muted by the $100,000 spending spree of the Internet Research Agency, LLC in posting ads on social media.

And oddly, it seems to have slipped the media or Mueller attention that in order for this company to be an LLC, it has to be a US registered company approved by the IRS and paying taxes…
