Flashback: Middle East Wars Preplanned Before and After 911

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Government / Warmongering
__________________________________

With all the lies and fake news coming from mainstream media, Americans need to take a look back at how and why we are here. All wars are bankers' wars. Americans have been manipulated to support the devastation in the Middle East so neocon/liberal politicians and their no bid contract corporations could ravage the sector. 




These acts of war for profit and resources are why we have migrant/refugee problems. Why women in Europe are being beaten and raped on a daily basis. Why terror acts are now common place.

The United Nations and economic block trade agreements like the EU and NAFTA are huge deterrents to peace. These corporations create economic problems such as the influx of unskilled, uneducated militants who deplete social safety nets and the patience of the host countries, by design of the elites. The elites are protected by armed guards while the rest of us deal with gangs, drugs, human trafficking, and destruction caused by the open borders philosophy.

If you love Open Borders so much, then go ask a Native American how that worked out for them.

If you do not know or understand the past, you are doomed to repeat it. The Native Americans were pitted against each other by foreign invaders... currently called undocumented immigrants. The tribes lost their lands and freedoms. Soon North America became a European settlement and Native Americans were enslaved.

Isn't Open Borders fun?

The Catholic Church destroyed and enslaved the native populations in Latin America, yet Spanish speakers glorify the mythical Aztland and tell Europeans to leave the lands for their urban legend. (By the way, you lost your land because you lost a war. Lookup your two treaties!) Uninformed. Uneducated. Unskilled. Illegal aliens are used as militants to foment clashes of ideology and call people racists for social control in order to lead an invasion of someone else's sovereign lands.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

All the World is a Stage... maybe it is time we retire some actors so the people of the free Earth can finally live in peace.

End refugee and migrant programs that only seek to cause civil unrest, disobedience, and culture wars. End the wars in the Middle East and send everyone back home. End multilateral trade agreements to flood sovereign nations with uninformed, uneducated, and unskilled illegal aliens.

Go live at George Clooney's, George Soros', Al Gore's, or Madonna's houses. They have a lot more breakable things than the average American does.

And probably 4D televisions, a pool, top notch alcohol, and rad automobiles to help you relax after a hard day rioting and looting in American streets waiving your foreign national flags all the while pledging your allegiance to Stalin, Lenin, and the Islamic State.

Because isn't that the point?

Changing the National Conversation: Corporate Spying and Tracking of Americans Needs to End

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Network of Corporate Control / Government Overreach
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Americans more than any other time in history are being tagged, tracked, and punished without due process of law. Corporations bribe our Congress to pass laws that undermine our rights to privacy, be secure in our persons, and due process of law. 

A recent development made the Network of Corporate Control all to clear and it is about time the American people disbanded monopolies and regained control of their personal information. 

Back doors into software and security features were created for governments to bypass probable cause and warrants in order to conduct criminal search and seizures for prosecution. Corporations have done this unconstitutional act with contract law. 

Contract law goes: I have a contract with my ISP, so that means I have given up my rights to privacy to not only the ISP but to third party corporations who cry copyright infringement every time you look at something cross-eyed. With the advent of "fake news" to censor our ability to access real information that is not government sponsored, now advertisers pull their revenue sharing and list any real information as fake or tainted or wrong.

Why are Americans putting up with corporate censorship and gatekeeping? Why are Americans allowing their politicians to change laws for corporate profiteering and spying? Why are Americans accepting biased court rulings when our Founding Fathers warned against corporate monopolies, control, and censorship?

When are Americans going to fight back?  

We need judges who are not corrupted by corporate whining and stomping around when it is the corporations responsibility to protect their information, not Joe Public. For example, I do not work for the corporations. I have no reason to protect what is not my responsibility to do so. Even software companies have been handed that responsibility by the courts, Now with the new copyright laws, anyone off the street bares the responsibility of corporate failure to do their due diligence. 

Can you say company town?

We need politicians to work for the People they were elected to represent. We need the People to stand up to this spy grid. Americans need to reestablish corporate and government boundaries when it comes to privacy protections.

So if anyone is out there listening, Americans need to sit down and devise new avenues of communication. We need a new internet that is free from corporate and government spying, tracking, and punishment without probable cause. No corporation should have the power to enter homes by stealth and get away with warrantless search and seizure through a contract. Innocent before proven guilty, yet corporations and governments have forgotten that the American people do not work for them. 

The laws are to protect our privacy and rights; the laws are not designed to do that for souless corporations. Corporations have no breath. Corporations have no life. They are a fiction. A representation on paper, corporations do not have an existence.

Americans will have to demand that corporations become redefined as something other than a person. Corporations are not people. Corporations have become agencies of governments. Corporations have redefined themselves by bribing the People's representatives into enacting unconstitutional laws for power and control of resources. 

Let's stop fighting amongst each other and fight for something more dear: our self respect. 

Americans need to demand the restoration of our basic inalienable rights before corporations become the gods the elite wish them to be.

Changing the National Conversation: Turning the Tables on the Elite, Media Deception

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Deep State / Conspiracy Theories
______________________________________

The alternative, or independent, media has got to stop wallowing in the mainstream media cesspool and begin changing the national conversation back to real issues. 

The Deep State is running their operatives in the federal, state, and local governments to thwart any progress away from their complete control through a one world government. Right now, news agencies report that the Deep State is actually Obama leftovers molding away in the refrigerators of the government and leaking classified information. 

The leaks are being done by these fungi, but their orders come from on high: the Deep State of elitists. Our COG, Continuity of Government, allows the elite access to our private information, national security and intelligence apparatuses, and hold overs from previous administrations. 

The puppet masters have a front row seat to collusion with other traitorous Globalists, as well as coffee with their daily Presidential briefings. 

How does independent media counter this onslaught of disinformation? Easy, by citing every piece of evidence and laying that evidence square at the feet of the Deep State elites. 

Has a Deep State elitist or operative written a book detailing their treason? The Grand Chessboard, perhaps? Begin quoting from these books, white papers, and think tank memos.

No more paraphrasing or summation... quote with citation. 

The only way the People can win the information war is by outing the Elite taskmasters for who they are and destroying their confirmation bias feeding ground. When you are at war, you disrupt supply lines, take out artillery, and weaken the enemy. 

The independent media has been hitting back, but not hard enough. You need to become generals in an information army. Quote, cite. An army does not have to be combative or physical; an army can be of the heart and soul.

You want to take back the national conversation away from the conspiracy theories of Russia hacking and collusion, and drive the dialogue straight into the laps of the elites.

Political theater only allows the elites and their operatives time to create havoc and confuse people. So go online and begin leaving coherent, well cited messages on news media websites through social media or Disquis. Call in to radio and television shows with quotations and citations.

Let's break the trance with facts and figures. Let's use a new type of civil disobedience: common sense. The more people stand up to the media online and in public without breaking any laws; the more people we awaken to the problems of our political elite class.   

 One person can make a difference. Why can't that person be you? 

Thank you.

Time to Change the National Conversation

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Media / Political Dialogue
____________________________________

We can no longer trust the Fourth Estate. That fact has been apparent for many years now. More and more people are catching on to the media's bias toward corporations, propaganda, ideologies, and religions. 

There is no place for subjectivity in journalism. The Free Press, which has not been seen in years, is supposed to be the check on the institution of government and its corruption, not for the control of the People. 

If you are a journalist and you are selling social justice, then you are not a journalist; you are a commentator. An opinion maker. A script reader. You have no right to make any claims about journalism.

That is why the VDP Gazette posted the article: When Will the FCC Investigate News Stations and Their Reporters? because journalists have gotten away from their duties and responsibilities to focus on what corporations demand: social engineering the public for profiteering. 

The "Free Press" is not shy about what it believes its job has become:
“It could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Mika Brzezinski stated on MSNBC. “And that, that is our job.”
No. No, it isn't. That is an example of the complete and total failure of the Fourth Estate. 

We need to change the national conversation away from what the mainstream media has to say to what is the real crux of a situation.

For example, the media has been used to soften and corrupt the conversation about illegal immigration by calling the criminal element: illegal immigrants or even undocumented workers. When in reality, crossing the border without permission of the People of the United States is considered a criminal act.
8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien
(a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts
Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.
If you knowingly help an illegal alien, that is considered a criminal offense as well under the law:
Unit of Prosecution -- With regard to offenses defined in subsections 1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.

Knowledge -- Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless disregard of alienage is sufficient.

Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment is provided for third or subsequent offenses.
For more information, read 1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses

Maybe some mayors and governors need to be hauled off to jail for their role in supporting illegal aliens in our country as well as enticing them with benefits. 

In the City of Phoenix, Mayor Greg Stanton gives illegal aliens identification cards at the cost of American tax payers. If that is not enticing as well as aiding and abetting criminal illegal aliens in the United State, then what is?

We have real issues in this country. Our state is no different, but why should we be concentrating on foreign nationals who are literally someone else's issue before our own people? Here is an example:

Last year even AZ Central published an article about heat related deaths citing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
More Americans die each year from heat-related incidents than from all other national disasters combined, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last year, Maricopa County recorded 84 heat-related deaths, according to county health officials.

About 40 percent of heat-related deaths occur indoors, county officials said, while stressing the importance of keeping air-conditioning running.
With the push for phony climate change, electric bills increase per year and people on fixed incomes cannot hope to make up the difference. Elderly, the home bound, and the disabled pay the price of low to no cooling with their lives.

Isn't that a huge problem in our state?

One estimate of the city services identification card so that illegal aliens can rent homes and obtain other opportunities has been guessed to cost Phoenix residents around $3 million dollars per annum. Here is a list of news articles and another from a progressive media outlet about this illegal action by the City of Phoenix.

Costs onto the already overburdened tax payer are inaccessible online except for an unofficial estimate.

Instead of catering to Mexico and their Nationals, which is nothing more than international and corporate welfare, how about the City of Phoenix rescind the City Services ID card for illegal aliens and use that money to offer air conditioning replacement and/or repair for the elderly, home bound, and disabled?

Why do Americans come last when the money is theirs in the first place?

Real journalism asks these types of questions. Real journalism points out the flaws in the government's argument. Real journalism uses real quotes, language, and information. 

The Fourth Estate is too focused on pleasing their corporate and elite masters instead of doing their damn job.

Isn't it time the People demand Truth, Justice, and the American way out of our politicians and media?

The People are not supposed to be propagandized. Isn't it time to change the national conversation away from social justice and just back to justice before another vulnerable American dies from being forgotten?

A few air conditioning units for the most vulnerable of our Phoenix population will save lives and not enticing illegal aliens to cross the hot Sonoran Desert for a Phoenix City Services Card definitely will.

When Will the FCC Investigate News Stations and Their Reporters?

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Journalism / Social Justice
____________________________________

Americans are barraged by news media that does not cater to factual information but rather pushes ideologies, political parties' agendas, and advertisements hidden as "consumer news." 

Above all this noise are political hate speech, racists attacks against Americans and Veterans as well as produced segments to raise money for illegal aliens and their families. What is more concerning than those real problems on the evening news is the fact that some mainstream media are now inciting violence from small minority communities. 

If you have seen these illustrations of social justice warriors masquerading as journalists and media outlets, please file a complaint with the FCC.

Here is information concerning filing a complaint at the FCC Consumer Complaint Center

After you have read the instructions, then you can file Your FCC Complaint

The airwaves belong to the People of the United States. Media must register in order to use our airwaves for the public good. When mainstream media moves away from information and education to training and deception, it is time for the American people to take back their news.
  • Have a news station catering to Mexican Nationalism and racial hatred of Americans through Aztlan Mythology? File a complaint. 
  • Have a news station that promotes corporations as news instead of explaining they are paid to endorse certain commercial products?  File a complaint.  
  • Have a news station pushing Gender Ideology, which promotes pedophilia?  File a complaint. 
  • Have a news station interviewing and raising money for illegal aliens?  File a complaint. 
  • Have a news station creating a climate of violence against Americans by pushing racially motivated hate crimes like the removal of US War Memorials?  File a complaint.
  • Have a news station falsely reporting about Global Warming and Climate Change being real?  File a complaint. 
Americans can turn around the information war being used against them. All Americans have to do is file every single time a news outlet lies, lies, lies. Which should not be too difficult, although often. 

Take back the airwaves and take back our national discourse.

Movie Night: President Trump Withdrawals from the Paris Climate Accords... YES!

Climate Change Hoax / Economic Slavery

FULL President Trump announces withdrawal from Paris agreement

Remember Maurice Strong from the United Nations? His direct quotes, from Good Quotes, about the environment and humanity are thus:
After all, sustainability means running the global environment - Earth Inc. - like a corporation: with depreciation, amortization and maintenance accounts. In other words, keeping the asset whole, rather than undermining your natural capital. 
One of the things that I've always thought I would like to do is to develop an environmental index. Then people can measure their own environmental performance on an index as they do in other ways.

Licences to have babies incidentally is something that I got in trouble for some years ago for suggesting even in Canada that this might be necessary at some point, at least some restriction on the right to have a child.
Read more about the elite's plans and how mass murder is also considered: He Said, She Said: People say the Danmest Things

President Trump had the right idea by vacating this agreement. The question really is why did the former President Obama ever sign off on such treason? 

Globalists and United Nations are not our friends.

Political Elite in Collusion with China and other Foreign Powers for Bilderberg

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Bilderberg / Logan Act
_________________________

Bilderberg Meeting in Chantilly VA, USA 1-4 June

In violation of the Logan Act, United States government officials are meeting in secret to discuss topics relating directly to national security. Economics. Nationalism. 

McAuliffe, Terence (USA), Governor of Virginia
McMaster, H.R. (USA), National Security Advisor
Ross, Wilbur L. (USA), Secretary of Commerce
Schadlow, Nadia (USA), Deputy Assistant to the President, National Security Council
  
Read the list of participants, although the list is not exhaustive. It is a Who's Who of the Network of Corporate Control.

If we want our country back, then we have to stop worrying about fake news like Russian Collusion and focus on the real acts of sedition and treason. We should begin with Bilderberg and move onto other secretive conclaves like Bohemian Grove.

18 U.S. Code § 953 - Private correspondence with foreign governments
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Topics of Bilderberg come to pass in our economic, social, and political landscape. Nothing discussed is ever not acted upon. Thus the meeting's agenda is tied to our future national and world crises. With the media and political focus on all the Russian hacking and collusion nonsense perhaps the media needs to investigate why it is all right for government officials to meet and discuss our nation with corporate heads and heads of state in any capacity that is not subject to public review? 

It is time for the American media to question the veracity and audacity of our leaders.

Right, Peggy Noonan?

Solar Grand Minimum Makes Paris Accords Look Foolish

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Paris Accords / Climate Change
_________________________________

As mayors and governors lament over the United States pull out of the Paris Climate Accords, actual scientists have been at work. 

United Nations' treaties, accords, and what have you are about politics and social engineering, none of those agreements are based on actual science. If they were, people would come to realize that the sun creates weather and our sun is headed toward a Solar Grand Minimum.

No Global Warming. No Climate Change... just a regularly scheduled break in solar activity that will lead us into a mini ice age like what was seen during the Maunder Minimum:
The Maunder minimum is the name given to a period of extreme solar inactivity that occurred between 1645 and 1710. Of particular interest is that this period of inactivity corresponds closely to one of the coldest periods of the so-called "Little Ice Age" in Europe, a time of long, cold winters that caused severe hardships in the pre-industrial revolution world. This has led scientists to extensively study the possible influences of solar activity on terrestrial climate, as well as examine other stars for evidence of activity cycle behavior similar to the Sun's.
We are headed there now: 




Even if you cannot read the science, you can very well understand the pictures. 

Climate change connected to Global Warming is fake news. Made up by politicians and debunked by real science. 

Maybe mayors and governors should start listening to the smart people instead of being sheep.

Study Finds Fake News Isn't Significant

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Fake News / Study
________________________________

Social Media and Fake News in the 2016 Election states:
Conclusion
In the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, it was alleged that fake news might have been pivotal in the election of President Trump. We do not provide an assessment of this claim one way or another. 
That said, the new evidence we present clarifies the level of overall exposure to fake news, and it can give some sense of how persuasive fake news would need to have been to have been pivotal. We estimate that the average US adult read and
remembered on the order of one or perhaps several fake news articles during the election period, with higher exposure to pro-Trump articles than pro-Clinton articles. How much this affected the election results depends on the effectiveness of fake news exposure in changing the way people vote. As one benchmark, Spenkuch and Toniatti (2016) show that exposing voters to one additional television campaign ad changes vote hares by approximately 0.02 percentage points. This suggests that if one fake news article were about as persuasive as one TV campaign ad, the fake news in our database would have changed vote shares by an amount on the order of hundredths of a percentage point. This is much smaller than Trump’s margin of victory in the pivotal states on which the outcome depended. 
Of course there are many reasons why a single fake news story could have been more effective than a television commercial. If it were true that the Pope endorsed Donald Trump, this fact would be significantly more surprising—and probably move a rational voter’s beliefs by more as a result—than the information contained in a typical campaign ad. Moreover, as we emphasize above, there are many ways in which our estimates could understate true exposure. We only measure the number of stories read and remembered, and the excluded stories seen on news feeds but not read, or read but not remembered, could have had a large impact. Our fake news database is incomplete, and the effect of the stories it omits could also be significant. 
We also note that there are several ways in which this back-of-the-envelope calculation is conservative, in the sense that it could overstate the importance of fake news. We consider the number of stories voters read regardless of whether they believed them. We do not account for diminishing returns, which could reduce fake news’ effect to the extent that a small number of voters see a large number of stories. Also, this rough calculation does not explicitly take into account the fact
that a large share of pro-Trump fake news is seen by voters who are already predisposed to vote for Trump—the larger this selective exposure, the smaller the impact we would expect of fake news on vote shares.  
To the extent that fake news imposes social costs, what can and should be done? In theory, a social planner should want to address the market failures that lead to distortions, which would take the form of increasing information about the state of the world and increasing incentives for news consumers to infer the true state of the world. In practice, social media platforms and advertising networks have faced some pressure from consumers and civil society to reduce the prevalence of fake news on their systems. For example, both Facebook and Google are removing fake news sites Hunt Allcott and Matthew Gentzkow 233 from their advertising platforms on the grounds that they violate policies against misleading content (Wingfield, Isaac, and Benner 2016). Furthermore, Facebook has taken steps to identify fake news articles, flag false articles as “disputed by 3rd party fact-checkers,” show fewer potentially false articles in users’ news feeds, and  help users avoid accidentally sharing false articles by notifying them that a story is “disputed by 3rd parties” before they share it (Mosseri 2016). In our theoretical framework, these actions may increase social welfare, but identifying fake news sites and articles also raises important questions about who becomes the arbiter of truth.

Deep State Massage

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Separation between Church and State
________________________________ 

Everyone loves a massage. There are relaxing massages. There are meditative massages. There are also deep massages that can leave you ill. 

That is the massage the United States is facing under the Deep State regime: outright mental illness. 

Leaks, conspiracy theories... the Deep State creates them all. With the election of Donald J. Trump as POTUS, the Deep State's administrative chokehold on the United States is in trouble. No more demands by unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, the United Nations, and no more writing  stifling regulations for our nation. 

That is a problem for the Deep State. 

Now the American people have to deal with scandals, Russian connections, and other fake news spewing out of their television sets and internet news sites on a daily basis. 

The American people have Deep State fatigue. We did not elect the Deep State. We do not want the Deep State. With the endless warmongering, migrants, and illegal immigration, the People want their money back.

This massage turned out to be from elites who are uneducated bafoons. 

If the American people want out of this destructive cycle of the evil Deep State Empire, then the People will have to stand up to their elected officials who fawn over Globalism, the United Nations' Climate agreements, and their local news media. 

The only problem the American people, and the world quite frankly, have is an elite class hiding in the shadows dictating our policies, regulations, and procedures to create a one world government. 

And, when we say: want our money back.... that number adds up to more than the trillions siphoned off the working peoples' backs to fund the Deep State Massage of Death.

Strike back at the evil empire by voting with your dollar and raising your voice against the machine.
