The Down and Dirty Deep State History of James Comey, All You Need To Know and More…


I’m not taking credit for this. I thought this was a pretty good write up and summary of James Comey and his history and connections to corruption, which have now been sourced and cited for your convenience. It is originally credited to Lisa Franks, who I have yet to track down. If anyone can connect me, please do. This is a compendium of several articles.

Chapter One, The Outline…

There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).

Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.

Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.

Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.

Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents.

Don’t believe the lie that Trump’s “tweets” are not professional and have no strategic purpose. His tweets are ‘weaponized’ and deadly.

James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.

Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department.

This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government. The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.

This is what you need to know about the Comey scams…

The Highlights:

Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who “investigated” and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton’s totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the Presidency. This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the “swamp” years ago, as a servant of the Clintons.

Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through their foundation after leaving the White House.

A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.

Immediately after doing the Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillary’s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.

In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.

In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal. Investigations by federal authorities and law-enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity.

HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the Bank and its officials. HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor (many millions) throughout the “investigation” and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec of State). Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 Billion dollar fine (paid by its stockholders), and not one Director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal.

Exactly when everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their “donors”) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC (in the middle of the fallout from the scandal). He was part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.

After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama.

The only qualification Comey had was that the Clinton’s and their cronies knew Comey was in bed with them, was compromised and was willing to do their dirty work. Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a private-server, mis-handling classified information, selling access to favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation Donors (including Comey’s Lockheed Martin), and much more.

Remember that this was about the time the Inspector General of the State Department found over 2 billion “missing” from the State Department finances during Hillary’s tenure.

The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI (along with other reliable Clinton-Obama cronies) to run interference for the Clinton’s and Obama’s at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency (in conjunction with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the Clintons. He owed all of his power and wealth to being part of their machine and providing them with cover.

In late 2015 and early 2016, information began to come out about the Clinton Foundation and its use by the Clinton’s as a multi-billion dollar slush fund for corruption and political favors (even Chelsea’s wedding had been paid for by the “charity.)

This was right as Hillary was beginning her campaign for President. It was revealed that the Foundation had never completed required reports or had an audit. Supposedly the FBI, under Comey, began an “investigation” of the Clinton Funds. A “professional” accounting firm was brought in by the Clintons to do a review, file some reports, make recommendations to the Clinton Foundation Board, and provide a veneer of legitimacy to the Clinton Fund operations. Predictably, one of the partners in the firm that was chosen (and paid lots of money) is the brother of James Comey (FBI Director).

This brother owes James Comey $700,000 for a loan James gave him to buy a house, and presumably some of the money from the Clinton Fund was used to make payments to James on the loan. Over 2 years later and nothing has happened as a result of the FBI “investigating” the Clinton Funds under Comey.

No one in congress or federal law enforcement was intending to actually pursue the Clintons, but Judicial Watch and other independent sources obtained information proving that Hillary had been running her own server, sending out classified information, etc. This information began to come out right in the middle of her campaign to be coronated as President. A “show” investigation had to be performed to appear to look into it and clear her. Who to use?…the reliable shill James Comey.

As head of the FBI, Comey (and his lackeys in key positions) deliberately screwed up the investigation into Hillary’s use of a private server and her plain violation of national security law on classified information. The investigation was deliberately mis-handled in every aspect.

(My note: around the time / after this OP was made – it was revealed a Grand Jury and subpoenas were usedbut I have no idea in what manner as I haven’t researched fully – we’ve know some people were issued subpoenas but I don’t know the extent and who was and wasn’t served. Grand jury info just came out April/May 2017. )

Everything that could be done to ruin the FBI investigation and to cover for Hillary was done. A “slam-dunk” case became a mess. Immunity was given every witness even though they provided no help.

Maybe more importantly, by focusing the FBI on the email scandal, attention was drawn away from the much bigger scandal of the Clinton Foundation that could bring down a huge number of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, and even governments.

Originally, Comey’s job was simply to totally botch the Hillary investigation and ruin the case against her and her minions within the FBI regarding he emails. At the same time Comey also started work on a parallel assignment to illegally “wiretap” and surveil Donald Trump and every other person involved in the Republican campaign. He was tasked with digging up any dirt or fact that could be used to hurt the Trump campaign later.

This included using a fake “dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign to obtain authorization for the surveillance and to try to associate Trump’s campaign with the Russians. Under Comey’s direction the Trump/republican campaign was monitored and surveilled and all information was provided to the Obama Whitehouse and the Clinton camp all during the campaign.

Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the cover-up for Hillary as Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI “investigation” did not justify prosecution of Hillary. But someone screwed up and Bill Clinton was video’d meeting with Loretta Lynch in Arizona shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary (interference with a federal investigation), and Lynch could no longer credibly squash the Hillary scandal.

The solution, give the job to James. The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever is necessary to provide cover. Comey goes on national TV and violates every rule of the FBI, the Justice Department and American law enforcement by revealing some of the FBI’s “evidence” of what Hillary did (enough to make it look like the FBI and Comey did some investigation), then declaring that there was no “intent” and clearing Hillary. He did what he was ordered to do. The Justice Department and Obama backed Comey’s coverup and it looked like Hillary had survived the scandal.

Then, right before the election, the NYPD obtained pervert Anthony Wiener’s laptop and found classified emails from Hillary on the laptop. The NYPD began leaking details to new-media outlets, and the story was about to explode. Comey once again stepped in to cover Hillary. He short-circuited the NYPD leaks by publicly acknowledging the laptop and the emails, but then claimed just days later that hundreds of thousands of emails had all been reviewed and “nothing new” was on the laptop. Once again, he had done his job. Providing cover and FBI “protection” for Hillary on the newest scandal when it broke.

The surveillance of the Trump campaign is continued after he is elected, all participants are “unmasked” illegally, and the transcripts are leaked throughout the government and to the media.

When General Flynn appropriately calls Russian officials on behalf of Trump, they brush off the old fake “dossier” and all of the surveillance of the campaign, and Comey creates the “Russian Conspiracy” investigation.

With help by RINO swamp kingpin and warmonger sell-out McCain, the fake “Russian pee dossier” is leaked to the press. There is no actual evidence of any collusion or connection between Trump or his campaign with Russia, but that does not prevent Comey from initiating an “investigation” at the FBI. This provides Comey with protection from Trump firing him immediately.

Comey (or his minions) constantly leak news of the “Russia Investigation” to the media, and the media does its scripted part by screaming constantly about “Russia.” The Democrats fill their role and constantly scream about “Russia.” McCain and the RINO establishment do their part by promising to “investigate” how the Russians influenced the campaign.

Immediately after Trump is sworn in, the DOJ Hillary/Obama operatives and Comey start the direct attack. This is before Sessions has been appointed to the Department of Justice and the DOJ is still controlled by Obama operatives.

DOJ Obama appointee Sally Yates approaches the Whitehouse with news that General Flynn had been in contact with Russia and alleges that he might be compromised. She reveals that there is an FBI “investigation” into the Russia ties (which they are constantly leaking to the media themselves). The White House Counsel (who Yates talks to, not Trump) asks for some more information.

This is a two-pronged attack. It protects Comey and DOJ democrat holdovers from being terminated by the new administration because they are involved in an “ongoing investigation” that they control the timetable on (albeit one with absolutely no evidence).

If Trump fires Comey then he is “interfering with the investigation” which is itself a federal crime that the FBI could then “investigate.” Alternatively, if they can get Trump to question Comey about Flynn or try to get him to back off of Flynn or the “Russia” investigation, then they again have him “interfering.”

Trump knows it is a set up by Comey and that he is probably being recorded (tips from FBI or DOJ who are not part of the corruption?) Maybe because his phone calls in the Whitehouse as President have already been bugged and released to the media. (FBI is in the best position to do this.) Maybe because he was used to the Mafia in NY trying to shake him down every time he built a hotel.

Comey tells Trump that Trump is not under investigation regarding Russia, but that others involved with the campaign are being investigated. Trump does not take the bait and attempt to intervene about Flynn or the Russia scam. Later, Flynn is cut loose because he is being used by Comey and the Obama-holdover Justice to try to damage Trump. He did nothing wrong, but if he stayed the charge of “interfering with an investigation” might seem to have teeth. Comey verbally tells Trump on two more occasions that he is not being investigated, but refuses to state this fact publicly or when testifying in Congress.

Trump knows everything I have gone through above about Comey. But he has to move carefully. He has to get his Attorney General and Deputy AG in place, get enough leverage on the Russia narrative, and ideally get rid of Comey in a way that allows him to obtain all the information that Comey has been accumulating (if he is taping Trump he is taping others.)

Comey, and others testify in Congress. Under oath, both Sally Yates and Intelligence officials from the Obama administration state that there has been no actual evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. More importantly, Comey, while refusing to say that Trump is not under investigation, testifies that he has informed the Senate Intelligence Committee heads who exactly is under investigation regarding Russia.

Trump tells almost no one at the White House that he is moving against Comey (so no leaks… no listening in on his conversations.) Trump somehow contacts Sen. Grassley (the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee) and confirms that Comey told the Senator that Trump was not under investigation personally. Trump gets both the Attorney General and the new Deputy Attorney General to legitimately review Comey’s unprofessional actions at the FBI and to recommend in writing that Trump terminate Comey. Somehow Comey goes to California (at the request of AG Sessions or already scheduled and someone at FBI telling Trump?)

Trump seizes the moment and acts. While Comey is in California, 3000 miles away and 7 hours from his office,Trump prepares a letter firing him (with Sessions and the Deputy AG recommendations attached). In the letter Trump states that he had been told 3 times by Comey that he (Trump) was not under investigation.

The letter is hand-delivered to the FBI headquarters by DOJ officials to lock-down and seize everything in Comey’s office, including all surveillance files (“tapes”) of Trump and others. All of Comey’s files, docs, computers and “tapes” are taken to Sessions at DOJ. They are not taken to the Whitehouse or Trump, but to Sessions, who has every right to have them. Sessions can tell Trump that Comey had surveillance tapes of Trump that contradict what Comey has been telling Trump, and perhaps tapes of conversations with other swamp “conspirators.” But Trump does not have them personally or at the Whitehouse.

Comey learns he has been fired when the media broadcasts it in California. He had no idea it was coming and he is ticked. On cue, the Democrat politicians and media begin screaming about Trump’s “interference with the Russia investigation” in accordance with the plan to set up Trump for that charge.

The Swamp wants to blow up the Russia narrative using Comey, and Comey is set to testify before Congress to try to hurt Trump by saying he was interfering with the FBI investigation. Comey intends to follow through with the plan to take down Trump. But because of his brilliant timing on this, Trump has Comey’s files, documents and information safely with Sessions at DOJ. Trump sends out a “crazy” tweet that says: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”

The media and the politicians go crazy about the “inappropriateness” of this tweet. They accuse Trump of “taping” everyone at the White House (forgetting that the Presidents phone calls with foreign leaders have been “taped” without his knowledge.)

Notice that Trump did not say he taped anyone, or that he has any tapes at the White House. It seem apparent that Trump is telling Comey that the DOJ (who has every legal right to possess it) has the surveillance information and files from Comey’s office, the “tapes” obtained and kept by Comey.

Comey and all the Swamp Creatures understand the clear message… their plan has failed and Trump’s DOJ is now holding all the cards.

The whole Russia interference scheme crashes and burns. While the mouthpiece media, Hollywood and the insane fringe continue to scream about Russia and Comey being fired, the politicians who will soon be in the crosshairs of a legitimate (and ticked) FBI and DOJ are starting to fall strangely silent. Comey realizes all the leverage is with Trump and that he will be lucky if he is not added to the Clinton Death List because of his knowledge (better not take any baths near an electrical outlet or get on any airplanes).

AG Sessions and his Deputy AG use the Comey trove of information to determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate at the FBI. They will be appointing an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been compromised by Comey, Clinton or Obama.

That “interim” Director does not have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence confidentiality laws by Susan Rice and Obama, human trafficking in DC, political corruption… draining the Swamp.

Using the Comey files they can be fairly certain they are not getting another Comey as an “interim”, and they do not have to wait for the circus of appointing a new permanent “Director” through Congressional approval. Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out FBI corruption and starting investigations into the swamp will be done by the “interim” before a new director is appointed. I suspect the Trump administration hopes the approval FBI Director process will be slow and tedious, so there is no political interference with the housecleaning that is starting.

In one masterstroke, Trump has eliminated a truly toxic and dangerous enemy to his administration and our country, dealt a horrendous blow to the Clinton/Obama and deep state machines, begun the restoration of the integrity of the FBI and the DOJ, and gained incredible ammunition to begin hunting the foul creatures in the swamp.

DETAILING THE COMMISSION OF COMEY’S CRIMES

Aim4Truth.org

James Comey is the penultimate D.C. “crime fixer.” His many years of D.C. cronyism are profoundly smeared with a litany of outright crimes that he should be prosecuted for and receive the most severe sentence as one who is supposed to be protecting U.S. laws instead of violating them contemptuously. But when you are the top-cop in America, you get a stack of “get out of jail free” cards—some for you and many for your criminal friends.

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that he is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C.  His personal and professional relationships have all been undisclosed as he pretended to prosecute Hillary Clinton and yet exonerated her before an investigation was even opened. This legal dodging has been Comey’s M. O. for decades as he was placed in high level political positions to “FIX” the charges brought against White House criminals.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch, another crooked lawyer and friend of Comey’s, gave the drug-money laundering bank, HSBC, a free pass with a Deferred Prosecution Agreement. Immediately afterwards, Comey was hired as a leading member of the bank’s “Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee.” In other words, Comey went to HSBC knowing it was a criminal enterprise protected by Loretta Lynch.

Comey is such a blatant criminal that we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he is on retainer for the Clinton Crime Family through his associations with corporations who are major donors and supporters of the Clintons. Comey has covered up wrongdoing with Hillary’s Email server, the DNC “hacking”, Anthony and Huma Email Scandal, Lockheed Martin, HSBC, Bridgewater, etc., etc., etc. Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that end up favorable to the Clintons.

KEY POINT: Comey claims to have a net worth of more than $33,000,000 – but this doesn’t count off-shore accounts where he probably places his larger pay-offs from his derivative betting and preferred stock in the crooked corporations he has worked for.

James Comey’s buddies – Sandy Berger, Loretta Lynch, Cheryl Mills and Peter Comey – all worked for the Washington law firm Hogan & Hartson, which prepared tax returns for the Clintons and did patent work for a software firm that played a role in the private email server Hillary Clinton used when she was secretary of state. Lynch and Comey both served as U.S. attorney in New York, Lynch for the Eastern District of New York, and Comey for the Southern District of New York.

Comey’s conflict of interest crimes are blatantly public and go unquestioned by D.C. cronies. These conflicts of interests focus on the millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, his former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Counting his clerk job during University of Chicago Law School in 1982, Comey has held 15 jobs before becoming FBI director. He changed jobs every two years. This type of job hopping is a sign of instability, but in government legal circles, that makes you qualified to be FBI director.

ROBERT MUELLER FORMER LAWLESS FBI DIRECTOR – COMEY’S TEACHER

Investigations into the financial holdings of James B. Comey and former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller reveal astounding conflicts of interest. These relationships would have stopped anyone else from being offered the top law enforcement job in the country.

Comey has been the FBI director since 2013 when he replaced 12-year director Robert S. Mueller who was chief counsel for London-based bank HSBC which was exposed in 2015 for sheltering $100 billion in client funds in murky offshore tax havens populated by drug dealers, money launderers, and arms traffickers.

Comey also served as chief counsel for Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world. In 2012, Comey’s Bridgewater salary was $6,632,616 just before taking over the helm at the FBI. In his first year at the FBI, he received another $3.3 million in Bridgewater severance cash outs. A year later, his net worth jumped up to $34 million. Comey also disclosed direct holdings in IBM Eclipse Foundation members: Verizon, Intel, Emerson Electric, Microsoft, Qualcomm, AT&T, Apple, HP, Morgan Stanley, Lockheed Martin, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, none of which has ever been disclosed or caused him to recuse himself in any case.

Comey was a director of the London money launderer extraordinaire, HSBC. Even the Clinton Foundation website boasts about HSBC donations. This fact alone disqualifies Comey from involvement in any Hillary Clinton investigation.

JAMES COMEY’S SALARY WENT FROM $206,000 IN 2002 UP TO $33.5 MILLION IN 2012

Robert Mueller’s salary went from $1.8 million in 2001 to $7.0 million in 2011 

Mueller held Defenders Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC and Mellon Optima L/S Strategy Fund LLC. These “funds of funds” invest in other hedge funds. Mueller’s exclusive funds were not open to the public. The minimum investment in several of the funds of funds is $10,000,000. But as HSBC whistleblower Hervé Falciani revealed in 2015, many are secret havens for money laundering, arms trafficking, and tax evasion.

Both Mueller hedge funds were managed by Mellon Bank of New York (BNY). No less than ten (10) BNY directors were shared between Mueller’s Defenders and Mellon Optima funds. Tellingly, the FBI never prosecuted any of these BNY Ponzi schemers associated with Mueller’s Defenders hedge fund or Comey’s actions with Bridgewater.

MUELLER’S LAWLESS GOVERNMENT SERVICE 

Even while U.S. Attorney in San Francisco, Mueller worked to cover-up the Oklahoma City bombing, Waco, and Ruby Ridge evidence by changing the rules of evidence so that the FBI and prosecution did not have to share as much evidence with defense attorneys in the cases as would have been required in the past. He changed the Brady rules of evidence in concert with the U.S. prosecutor Beth Wilkinson in the McVeigh and Nichols case who had assumed a position in the same department at Department of Justice that Mueller had worked earlier.

Mueller was brought into D.C. to head the transition team for Ashcroft, whereupon he proceeded to steer Ashcroft through the cover-ups by FBI and DOJ on the Oklahoma City bombing case. Mueller did such a superb job that Ashcroft personally nominated Mueller to Bush for FBI director to help perpetuate the FBI and DOJ cover-ups of Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the Oklahoma City bombing.

Mueller was also involved in covering up the Noriega, BCCI, and BNL banking scandals of Bush Senior. Mueller worked closely at several points with Larry Potts, the former Deputy Director of the FBI, who was kicked out of the FBI for lying about the FBI having Vickie Weaver murdered.

Congress investigated Mueller’s and the FBI’s handling of memos from FBI agents Coleen Rowley and Ken Williams before the 9/11 attacks about the Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda connections to hijacker pilots training in the U.S.  Mueller’s ties to the Saudis and BCCI are especially troubling because the FBI had been ordered not to investigate Saudi businessmen, Saudi Royals, and government officials that had been backing Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Bin Laden in their efforts to attack the U.S.

Mueller was Acting Deputy Director of the DOJ from January through May, went home for a month and was then nominated to head the FBI. The Judiciary Committee and the Senate acted on Mueller’s nomination and within 2 weeks he was confirmed, but then it took over a month to swear him in as FBI director, just in time for the 911 attacks creating plausible deniability for the new director. See our article below for more details on how 9-11 was planned and implemented by United States citizens, including many names that have been mentioned already:

TREASON: WHO TERRORIZED AMERICANS AND THE WORLD ON 9-11?

CONTINUING LAWLESSNESS IN THE COMEY REGIME

Comey’s FBI and Lynch’s Justice Department have stubbornly refused to prosecute heinous criminal acts of the Obama Administration.  America, and especially Washington D. C., has become LAWLESS.  Comey is the King of Lawlessness in America.  Here is a short list of unprosecuted crimes that Comey ignores or outright supports.

  • Hillary Clinton Benghazi gun running
  • Ambassador Steven’s death
  • Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious gun running
  • Hillary’s private server espionage and treason
  • Bush and Clinton bank bailouts
  • Bombing seven sovereign nations without congressional approval
  • Obama’s IBM Eclipse Foundation’s social networking patent theft
  • James Clapper’s illegal NSA/CIA/FBI surveillance and his perjury before Congress
  • Obama’s energy company subsidies
  • Obama’s misuse of banker fines to support liberal activist groups
  • Obama’s theft of Fannie May and Freddie Mack
  • Obama’s IRS targeting of conservatives
  • Obama and Clinton’s confiscations from the Bureau of Land Management
  • Planned Parenthood eugenics and baby parts trafficking
  • Gold, silver, and LIBOR rate rigging
  • Ignoring “missing person” reports and supporting human trafficking
  • Clinton Foundation theft of $2 billion under the guise of a Presidential Library fund
  • Hillary taking money from foreign nations while Secretary of State
  • Maintaining open borders and Sanctuary Cities
  • Refugee trafficking and fraud
  • Allowing overstayed visas of more than one million people
  • Non-enforcement of existing immigration laws

COMEY’S LONG HISTORY AS AN ELITE FIXER 

It would take too long and too many pages to make a complete listing of the “Crimes of Comey” that are well known. The scarier fact is that this list of 18 crimes is only the tip of the iceberg. These are just the crimes that are internet-available, and Comey is great at keeping things hidden and arcane. Several these crimes are some of the largest rip-offs and fleecing of the America people in U.S. history.

It is well known is D.C. circles that Lockheed Martin is the military’s place to launder money for the Department of Defense and the CIA. Some say the missing $6 trillion dollars from Pentagon accounting is shuffled through Lockheed Martin which can simply keep false inventories of fighter jets and hide hundreds of millions at the time. Just count the number of planes the government pays for, and then count the number delivered and you will find the missing money. Each B-2 bomber cost $2 billion.

This list of “Comey Crimes” range from “fixing” D.C. insider law suits to defending the biggest criminals in the world – the rogue CIA bankers who use HSBC and many other “CIA gold-backed banks” to conduct the business of the “company.” The “company” is the inside name for the CIA whose job it is to maintain a destabilized geopolitical atmosphere where warlord bankers and brokers make huge profits from war-mongering.  The CIA’s corporate imperialism is only slightly disguised as United Nations globalization.

Comey’s actions show that he is not an honest U.S. citizen. His actions are those of a traitor whose treasonous actions against the rule of law, the U.S.. Constitution, and the U.S. Bill of Rights must be acknowledged and brought to justice. Comey belongs behind bars as you can see by the crimes highlighted in the list below.

Patent Theft and Insider Trading. Comey was general counsel at Lockheed Martin and is an active IBM Eclipse member. Comey and Lockheed were complicit in the patent theft of social networking and later using insider trading information to manipulate stocks.

Fixing Hillary Clinton’s Email Espionage. In fact, the email server “probe” marked the third time Comey has investigated Bill or Hillary Clinton and found them innocent even before a formal investigation was conducted.

Fixing Clinton Whitewater Investigation. In the mid-1990s, Comey joined the Senate Whitewater Committee as a deputy special counsel to investigate allegations that the Clintons took part in a fraud connected to an Arkansas real estate venture gone bust. No charges were ever brought against either Clinton thanks to Comey.

Fixed the Pardon of Robert Palmer. In his last days in office, Bill Clinton pardoned 450 people. One of those pardoned was Robert Palmer who pleaded guilty for his part in the Clinton’s “Whitewater” scandal.

Fixed the Pardon of Marc Rich. Marc Rich fled the U.S. to Switzerland to evade $100’s of millions in taxes on his commodity trading profits.  Rich’s ex-wife Denise made donations to the Democratic Party, the Clinton Library and Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign as part of a plan to get Rich off the hook.

Failed to Recuse Himself. Comey himself had overseen Rich’s prosecution between 1987 and 1993 so he should have recused himself from an investigation of Rich or Clinton.

Fixed Hillary’s Vote Rigging. In 2002, Comey was the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York and was investigating a case involving the Clintons and suddenly, with very little explanation, closed the case. The case was concerning the infamous New Square Four, who were convicted of bilking the government out of tens of millions of dollars.

Fixed Clinton’s “Donations for Pardons.” Comey oversaw the criminal investigation into the 176 last-minute pardons that Bill Clinton made on his last day in office. Many of the pardon recipients, including Rich, had donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign and to Bill Clinton’s presidential library. Comey found no criminal wrongdoing.

False Accusations about Khobar Towers Bombing. Comey lead the team of investigators who determined that Iran had bombed the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.  Later it was found that Al-Qaeda was responsible. This false accusation was much in line with Mueller’s false accusation that Al-Qaeda was responsible for the 911 attacks.

Fixing Clinton’s Part in 911. In 2004, Comey as Attorney General of the Justice Department limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

Fixed the Sandy Berger Theft. As Deputy Attorney General, Comey was involved in the investigation of Sandy Berger who removed classified documents from the National Archives that should have been turned over to the independent commission investigating the 9/11 terror attacks. Berger pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and was fined $50,000.

Fixed Clinton’s Continued Use of Berger. Messages found stored on Clinton’s private email server show that Berger – a convicted thief of classified documents – had been advising Clinton while she served as secretary of state and had access to emails containing classified information. Comey did nothing about it.

Illegal Surveillance of Americans. In 2006, Comey refused to certify the legality of aspects of the NSA surveillance program. The certification was required under White House procedures for the program to continue. Comey refused to answer the Senate Judiciary Committee’s questions over the question. Comey met directly with President Bush who gave his support for making changes in the surveillance program. That program continued to surveil all Americans illegally with Comey’s approval.

Condones Torture. In 2005, as Deputy Attorney General, Comey endorsed a memorandum approving the use of 13 enhanced interrogation techniques, including waterboarding and sleep deprivation for up to 180 hours, for use by the CIA when interrogating suspects.

Fixing Crimes for Lockheed. In 2005, Comey became the General Counsel and Senior Vice President for Lockheed Martin, the U.S. Department of Defense’s largest contractor. Under Comey’s direction and influence, Lockheed continued to break many laws and rip-off the Pentagon mercilessly. There are 58 cases for Lockheed involving more than $600 million in fines, damages and other payments that are registered. When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers. But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year. Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. Lockheed became a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010. In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department. Comey needed to recuse himself from any case involving Clintons.

Allowing Illegal Accounting. In 2005, KPMG, about two weeks after meeting with Comey personally, the KPMG legal team was told that Comey and Gonzales decided against an indictment of the firm. This sent a message to the Big Four public accounting firms, KPMG, Deloitte, EY and PwC. The largest global public accounting firms are now, as a result of their decision, considered “too few to fail” by the Justice Department and SEC.

Lying to Congress. In his July, 2013, FBI confirmation hearing, Comey said that the oversight mechanisms of the U.S. government have sufficient privacy protections even though the Chinese had hacking almost every department in Washington and stolen military secrets, personnel information, and blue-prints to military aircraft and weapons.

Illegal Surveillance by FBI. Comey requested Google, Facebook, Apple, Cisco and others to install a “back door” for U.S. surveillance agencies to use.

COMEY PROTECTS CRIMINAL CONTRACTOR LOCKHEED MARTIN 

This short list of Lockheed Martin’s wrongdoing demonstrates the criminal record of intention to defraud the US government by its largest contractor. These are some of the ways trillions of dollars “come up missing” from the Pentagon’s spending. Comey, as Attorney General, should have stopped Lockheed’s criminal activities. Instead, Comey went to work for them knowing they were one of the most obviously criminal enterprises in America. Comey used his insider information to help Lockheed continue to steal and rip-off America. These actions speak volumes about Comey’s integrity. And remember, these crimes below are just the ones they “got caught” doing.

  • In 2007, Lockheed agreed to repay the federal government $265 million plus interest in connection with overbilling for work on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
  • In 2003, Lockheed agreed to pay $37.9 million to settle charges that it inflated costs in several contracts for the U.S. Air Force.
  • A federal jury has issued a verdict that would require Lockheed Martin Corp. to pay $51.5 million, including $50 million in punitive damages, in an age discrimination suit.
  • In 1976, a sub-committee of the S. Senate concluded that members of the Lockheed board had paid $22 million in bribes to foreign officials in the process of negotiating the sale of aircraft.
  • In 2003, Lockheed paid $7.1 million to settle charges that one of its units submitted fraudulent lease cost claims to NASA for work on the space shuttle.
  • Lockheed Martin reached a $10.28 million settlement with the United States to resolve allegations under the False Claims Act. Lockheed inflated the overhead rates that it used to price and bill government contracts performed for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.
  • Lockheed Martin paid the Justice Department $4.7 million to settle charges it fraudulently paid a lobbyist with illegally used taxpayer funds. It paid the lobbyist, a revolving door former U.S. Representative, to help it get a giant, no-bid, $2.4 billion-a-year contract.
  • Anti-competitive bids acquired on a regular basis. The last competition, when Lockheed’s subsidiary, Sandia Corp., got a competitive award, was over twenty years ago, in 1993. Since then – no bidding.
  • Paid a Representative $10,000 a month to gain contracts.
  • Justice Department settled with Lockheed’s Sandia to pay $4,790,000 to resolve allegations that Sandia violated the Byrd Amendment and the False Claims Act.
  • In 1998, Lockheed agreed to pay $3.15 million to settle charges of artificially inflating prices of spare parts sold to the Commerce Department.
  • In 2000, the State Department fined Lockheed $13 million for violations of the Arms Control Export Act in connection with the transfer of information about space launches to China.
  • In 2002, Lockheed’s Tactical Systems Division agreed to pay the federal government $2.1 million to settle charges that it submitted fraudulent bills to the Navy for work on Trident Missiles.
  • In 2003, Lockheed agreed to pay $1.4 million to settle allegations that Loral Corp., which it acquired in 1996, had overbilled the Air Force on the F-15E Weapon System Trainer.
  • In 2005, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control agreed to pay $1.4 million to resolve allegations of mischarging the U.S. Army in connection with its production and support contracts for the Multiple Launch Rocket System.
  • In 2008, the Project On Government Oversight made public a 2007 report by the Defense Contract Management Agency that found Lockheed failed to follow 19 of 32 Pentagon guidelines on tracking and managing costs on major weapons programs.
  • In 2008, Lockheed agreed to pay $4 million to settle charges that it failed to get permission to sell missiles to the United Arab Emirates and that the company revealed classified information during negotiations with the Persian Gulf nation.
  • In 2010, Lockheed agreed to pay $10.28 million to resolve federal charges that it overbilled the Air Force and the Navy for the C-27J tactical aircraft.
  • In 2011, Lockheed agreed to pay $2 million to settle allegations brought in connection with a contract competition.
  • In 2012, Lockheed agreed to pay $15.85 million to settle allegations that it overcharged the Pentagon for tools used on military aircraft programs.
  • Lockheed Martin settles a $1.3 billion class action lawsuit over employee 401(k)s. Lockheed agreed to pay $62 million to settle the lawsuit.

AS JAMES COMEY CALLS IT – JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE.

In 2010, Comey announced he would leave Lockheed Martin to join the senior management committee at Bridgewater Associates, a Connecticut based investment management firm that is the largest hedge fund company in America. Bridgewater earns the greatest returns on investment of any company in America and has never been investigated by the SEC. Somehow, Comey had found a company even more corrupt than Lockheed Martin that could avoid all government scrutiny completely.Comey was then able to take his millions from Lockheed and bet it on derivatives that multiplied it into tens of millions.

In 2013, Comey was appointed to the board of directors of the London-based financial institution HSBC Holdings, to improve the company’s compliance program after its $1.9 billion settlement with the Justice Department for failing to comply with basic due diligence requirements for money laundering regarding Mexican drug cartels and terrorism financing.

Comey had now found a way to make boatloads of money without litigating or betting on derivatives. He joined one of the “Rogue CIA Banks” that was notorious for committing crimes and a track record of never having a banker go to jail.  HSBC was used to paying millions, if not billions, in fines regularly as just “a part of doing business.” Comey, who had no training or skill in banking whatsoever, became an international banker dealing with billions. Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings with no prior experience, except his track record of corruption.

EDGAR HOOVER WAS A CHOIR BOY COMPARED TO JAMES BRIEN COMEY.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to retrofit 2,500 housing units in New York City. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected $1 billion in financing.

Comey was a HSBC director when whistleblower Hervé Falciani exposed $100 billion in murky offshore private banking deals being sheltered by HSBC. These crimes occurred on Comey’s watch, as well as money laundering, gold and silver rigging, and LIBOR rate fixing. HSBC agreed to forfeit $1.25 billion and enter a deferred prosecution agreement with the Justice Department for HSBC’s violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act. HSBC has also agreed to pay $665 million in civil penalties – $500 million to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and $165 million to the Federal Reserve – for its AML program violations.

COMEY: THE CLINTON/OBAMA FIXER

In 2013, President Barack Obama nominated Comey to be the next Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, replacing outgoing director Robert Mueller, his criminal mentor. Comey was confirmed by the Senate on July 29, 2013, for a full ten-year term to run the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was sworn in as FBI director on September 4, 2013.

KEY POINT: Obviously, no vetting was done on James Comey or any of his continuous criminal activities. The public record should have put Comey in jail, but instead crowned him the King of FBI Lawlessness.

No law was “too big” for Comey to break in the full daylight of Washington D.C.  Going unchecked, Comey continued to act with impunity and helped lead the war against the rule of law.

As the Top Law Enforcement Officer in America, Comey was well placed and ready for the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the many false-flag attempts to take Donald Trump out of the presidential election. Comey was geared up for his old friend Hillary so she could run the country with her unchecked criminal activities.

When Hillary’s personal email server scandal arose, as usual, Comey’s non-investigation investigation did not find evidence “sufficient to establish” that Clinton knew she was receiving or sending classified information with intent and that it was not against the law. Comey said, “I think she was extremely careless. I think she was negligent. That I could establish. What we can’t establish is that she acted with the necessary criminal intent,” he insisted. This determination of Comey’s made lawlessness perfectly legal.

On July 5, 2016, Comey announced the FBI’s recommendation that the United States Department of Justice file no criminal charges relating to the Hillary Clinton email controversy. Thus, Comey kept Clinton from going to jail….yet, again.

Comey’s public comments came after his close friend Attorney General Loretta Lynch, after meeting privately with Bill Clinton, announced that she would “fully accept the recommendation of the FBI” regarding the “probe.” It was believed to be the first time the FBI disclosed its prosecutorial recommendation to the Department of Justice publicly.

On October 28, 2016, less than two weeks before the presidential election, Comey announced in a letter to Congress that the FBI learned of the existence of emails that appeared to be pertinent to the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s email server and that the FBI would take steps to allow investigators to review these emails. Comey’s announcement was inconsistent with Justice Department policy and he was warned by lawyers at the Department of Justice against proceeding with his letter to Congress which could be a possible violation of the Hatch Act.

On January 12, 2017, the Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General announced a formal investigation into whether the FBI followed proper procedures in its investigation of Clinton or whether “improper considerations” were made by FBI personnel. But, Comey’s letters again exonerated Hillary Clinton again, even though she was clearly guilty.

Chairman Chaffetz asked Comey during the investigation what the consequences would be for Clinton if she had been in the FBI and carelessly handled classified information as she, Abedin, Podesta and Obama did concerning Clinton’s personal server and Abedin’s forwarding of those classified documents to her home computer. “There would be a security review and an adjudication of their suitability and a range of discipline could be imposed from termination to reprimand, and in between suspension, loss of clearance,” said Comey.

According to FBI Director Comey, there was not enough clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues “intended” to violate laws governing the handling of classified information even though Hillary lied concerning a number of critical issues regarding her personal email account, her home-based server and conduct as Secretary of State. Comey lied to Congress by giving answers which were at once contradictory, irrational, and lacking legal propriety. It is evident to every discerning American that Comey is at the very center of a massive covert Clinton criminal enterprise the secrecy of which hinged directly upon a cover-up coordinated by Comey himself.

COMEY’S COLLUSION WITH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

 Lead FBI agent John Giacalone abruptly resigned in the middle of the Clinton Foundation investigation in February 2016 stating that the pay-for-play Clinton Foundation was not properly investigated and was ultimately white-washed and ignored. He cited that FBI agents were blocked from serving search warrants to retrieve key evidence and not allowed to interrogate witnesses and targets without warning.

FBI agents had been trying to interview Clinton since December 2015, because approval was delayed by “top brass.” Agents believed the Clinton case was being “slow-walked” to run-out-the-clock. They were also stunned that targets Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were permitted to sit in on Hillary Clinton’s FBI’s interview. Hillary and her aides cited amnesia, and in Hillary’s case, she claimed to not remember due to medical complications surrounding her unexplained fall. Attempts to secure Clinton’s medical records to confirm her head injury were sabotaged by FBI Director James Comey.

Comey, in his usual fashion, had already prepared his written statement that the Clintons are “now” and will “always be” innocent and that there is no need to even have an investigation. “There’s nothing here folks, just keep moving along” sings Comey as his familiar tune.

PETER COMEY – JAMES COMEY’S BROTHER 

Peter Comey serves as Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing. DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton’s first big push to put the Email Scandal behind them.

DLA Piper’s employees, taken as a whole, represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base. DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career top contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs.

In 2011, Peter Comey became Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas for DLA Piper. Two real estate services businesses filed a $10 million suit against the law firm alleging it stiffed them on as much as $760,000 of work done at DLA Piper’s Chicago office and improperly gave proprietary information to a competitor. The plaintiffs took aim at Peter Comey, DLA Piper’s senior director of real estate operations and were sharply critical of Comey’s handling of the matter.

Peter Comey has a mortgage on his house that is owned by his brother James Comey, the FBI director. Peter Comey’s financial records show that he bought a $950,000 house in Vienna, Virginia, in June 2008. He needed a $712,500 mortgage from First Savings Mortgage Corporation. But on January 31, 2011, James Comey and his wife stepped in to become private party lenders. They granted a mortgage on the house for $711,000. Financial records suggest that Peter Comey took out two such mortgages from his brother that day. This financial relationship between the Comey brothers began prior to James Comey’s nomination to become director of the FBI, but were never disclosed.

Peter Comey, after getting an MBA in real estate and urban development from George Washington University in 1998, became an executive at a company that re-designed George Washington University between 2004 and 2007 while his brother was working for the Bush administration.

In 2009, at the beginning of the Obama administration, Peter Comey became “a real estate and construction consultant” for Procon Consulting. Procon Consulting’s client list includes FBI Headquarters Washington, DC. Procon provided strategic project management for the consolidation of over 11,000 FBI personnel into one, high security, facility. Services provided included project management related to site evaluations, budgeting, due diligence, and the development of procurement and funding strategies.  Peter Comey made out like a bandit while his brother climbed the ladder of DC success.

None of the questionable activities of Peter Comey, James Comey’s brother, ever came up during the Congressional approval process for James Comey in any of his political appointments.

THE LAWLESS  MUST GO 

 

The short list of why James Comey must be prosecuted and meet justice is because he is the perfect example of the corruption in the Washington D.C. swamp. Comey has protected the DC as a fixer, a for-hire deceiver, and a criminal conspirator.  There is no challenge “too big” for Comey because he is so good at deceit and CIA/Jesuit style subversion, espionage, and narrative manipulation. Comey can lie out both sides of his mouth at once and no one in D.C. questions him.

JAMES COMEY IS ABOVE THE LAW AS THE MOST LAWLESS LAW ENFORCER IN THE COUNTRY.

DO THE STAFF AT THE DOJ KNOW HOW TO USE THE INTERNET SEARCH FUNCTION?

Comey’s crimes are so copious that we are appalled that our citizen intelligence has turned up so much wrongdoing, yet we pay a huge staff at the Department of Justice who apparently don’t know how to use a search engine.

Maybe Attorney General Jeff Sessions might put his staff on performance based goals, like all of us successful entrepreneurs do with our own staff, to make sure they are competent enough to hold their positions.

May we suggest that AG Sessions, dole out the crime allegations we have outlined in this article to his staff of attorneys at their next staff meeting? One topic per attorney and start doing your homework and preparing indictments.

HELLO BUREAUCRATS, TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING YOU TO DO THIS WORK. IF YOU CAN’T GET IT DONE, THEN WE THE PEOPLE SAY YOU’RE FIRED!  

  • James Comey has violated every office that he has held, from the Justice Department to the FBI.
  • Comey is a known criminal who provides “fixer services” for those involved in the CIA White House criminal families.
  • Comey has exonerated the Bush family, the Clinton family, and the Obama Chicago mobsters from endless crimes.
  • Comey is one of the most vile and immoral people in DC, and yet he is the head law enforcement officer in America who needs to be behind bars with the criminals he has protected for years.
  • Comey is a lawless lawyer only looking out for his personal interests of power and greed, which he seems he have an endless desire for possessing.
  • Comey’s crimes with his White House buddies, his brother, criminal cartels, warlord bankers, military corporations, patent lawyers, and every other imaginable criminal must be prosecuted.

Comey, like FBI director Hoover, has blackmail evidence on everyone in D.C. and therefore is truly a “D.C. untouchable” who always seems to be appointed to a high-level government position just when the going gets tough for DC criminals. Comey is always there to rescue them and pronounce them innocent, even before the investigation is complete.

James Comey is the best “political fixer” in American history and citizen journalists should make sure to expose his true nature through his lawless actions reflected in the public record.

CITIZENS MUST DEMAND THAT SUCH A BLATANT CRIMINAL BE MET WITH THE MOST SEVERE LEGAL INDICTMENT THAT CAN BE MADE – HIGH TREASON AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. JAMES COMEY MUST BE INDICTED TO BRING THE RULE OF LAW BACK TO AMERICA.

Chelsea Manning May Be Free But He’s Still a Traitor – Steve Sheldon / Townhall


By Steve Sheldon

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

Army Private Bradley Edward Manning, now known as Chelsea Elizabeth Manning, was released from the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth, Kansas on May 17 after serving only seven years of a 35-year sentence for releasing approximately 750,000 classified documents to Wikileaks. His sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama three days before he left office.

In April 2015 – while in prison – Manning started receiving hormone therapy to satisfy his desire to appear as a woman. This therapy was bought and paid for by the American taxpayer. A month earlier, the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that Manning be referred to in either a gender neutral term or a feminine one going forward.

I won’t bore you with the creepy details, but Manning was a problem from day one in the Army and should have been discharged immediately. His image should be on a poster in every Army recruiter’s office… Continued at: Chelsea Manning May Be Free But He’s Still a Traitor – Steve Sheldon

The Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer also started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing poverty and abuse.

He told Details magazine in 2012: ‘When I met my wife Vicky’s family, I had to go out of my way to convince them – to show them – that I wasn’t anything like their idea of a musician.’

As for letting his own children date a rock star, Chris told Details: ‘I’ve met many, many musicians that I wouldn’t let anywhere near my daughter. Or my son.’

Cornell was previously married to Susan Silver, with which he fathered daughter Lillian Jean, 17.

Susan was manager of both Alice In Chains and Soundgarden – but they divorced shortly before he married Vicky.

He was part of the same Seattle grunge rock music scene as Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, and in 2015, footage emerged of Cobain doing an impression of him.

He told Shaun Keaveny during an interview with BBC Radio 6 in 2012 that having the Nirvana and Pearl Jam as friends when Soundgarden were making it big really helped him.

He said: ‘It was an exciting time. We had people we could talk to about this insane experience. It was happening to a few of us. People we had known for a long time.

‘It was all new to us. We didn’t know what to make of it. It helped to have some friends going through the same craziness.’

‘It seemed to come out of nowhere and was not something we could have expected.’

Social media was flooded with posts from devastated fans soon after the sad news.

Posts read: ‘Truly saddened to hear of the death of @Chris Cornell, beautiful man, beautiful voice, outstanding music RIP #chriscornell #rip #legend.’

‘Really sad to hear the news about Chris Cornell. Another one gone to soon.’

Meanwhile, Cornell faced his own share of personal demons before becoming a clean-living family man.

He said: ‘When I transitioned into adulthood – high-stakes emotional responsibilities – I did everything I could get my hands on. It happened without me really noticing it,’ he confessed.

‘The thing is, when you pick up the pipe for the first time, you don’t know that that’s your fate. The moment isn’t that dramatic. And then that was it – I didn’t want to care anymore.’

Chris Cornell talks his passion for music before his death.
Soundgarden split in 1997 and reunited in 2010, their last record was King Animal in 2012.

When Soundgarden reformed, he said the only real change was the lack of booze on the tour bus after he went tee-total.

He said: ‘The biggest difference I noticed… and we haven’t even really talked about it: There are no bottles of Jack Daniels around or beers. And we never talked about.. it’s just not there.’

The band – also comprised of Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd – were due to continue their North American tour and travel to Columbus, Ohio on Friday, with the run ending in Oklahoma on May 27.

During their 13-year hiatus, Cornell went through a dark period and was admitted to rehab for alcohol addiction.

In 2012, Chris spoke about his struggle with addiction, saying at the time: ‘It’s something that would have happened even if Soundgarden had stayed together.

‘It was a long slow slide and then a long slow recovery, but there was self-discovery too.

‘For me it was mostly alcohol – from my late teens until my late thirties.’

The GAP Features Hijab in Their 2017 Campaign – #CloseTheGAP #BoycottGAP


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is what we’ve come to. Major corporations are kissing Muslim ass to get their dollars! Gap is welcoming the season by celebrating diversity, with a hijabi. The American clothing retailer launched its new summer collection with a video featuring Americans from around the country, one of whom is a hijabi.

“Along the way we met truly amazing people (like you). Brave and loving, funny and powerful, complex and strong, YOU ARE GAP!”
Gap joins other companies like CokeMicrosoft, H&M, and Honey Maid to name a few, who are featuring Muslim women wearing hijab in their commercials and showing their audience that they are only in it for the money, screw our culture.
“When Gap reached out to us about featuring one of our hijabs in their campaign, we were thrilled! It’s finally out, and we could not be more excited about the finished piece!” the Haute Hijab staff wrote in a blog post.
This needs to go viral, share it with the #CloseTheGap and #BoyCottGAP tags. Let’s hit them where they really care, their GD bank account! This garbage is going too far. They don’t give a flying f##k about Muslims, it’s just brand capitalizing on current affairs and a big corporation tapping into the American Muslim demographic to make more money.

Welcome to Haute Hijab!

I’m Melanie, the founder and CEO of Haute Hijab and I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to our vibrant and inclusive community!

Our community consists of beautiful women empowering one another through their inspiring stories, style and commitment to faith. Our hijab prints are hand-picked and fabrics are meticulously scrutinized to feel amazing and be the key to leaving you comfortable and confident, everyday. Don’t be shy, please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. We are your brand!

When GAP reached out to us about featuring one of our hijabs in their campaign, we were thrilled! It’s finally out, and we could not be more excited about the finished piece!

Watch the GAP video below:

The campaign is titled, “I Am GAP, Portrait of an American Summer”, and it features a [Haute] Hijabi! Given today’s political and social climate, Gap makes a bold statement with this video. The campaign acknowledges diversity and is yet another commercial that brings hijab into the mainstream!

GAP’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity is nothing new. They dedicate a page on their website to break down everything they are doing as a company to foster inclusion. They state, “Diversity unlocks our innovation, helps attract and retain talent, and builds connections with our customers.” We couldn’t agree more.

In 2013, Gap featured a Sikh model in their holiday #MakeLove campaign, and when the ad was defamed, Gap responded with a message of solidarity and even changed their Twitter background to the picture of Ahluwalia (the Sikh model). Most recently, they made strides towards inclusivity by showing children that different is beautiful with their latest 11-year-old model, April, who has a skin condition called Vitiligo. April is featured in a video on Gap’s Facebook page saying,”Confidence is courage.” That’s a powerful message to send to young children.

Hybutalla, who was featured in the campaign. It is important for people to see relatable role models and models in the mainstream media. Diversity needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. While there is no doubt a lack of diversity in the fashion industry, things are slowly beginning to change. Gap joins other companies like CokeMicrosoft, H&M, and Honey Maid to name a few, who are featuring Muslim women wearing hijab in their commercials and showing their audience that the hijab is beautiful, it is normal, and it is here to stay.

Are you struggling with hijab? Is there something holding you back from putting it on? Do you have thoughts of removing it? As Muslims, we have a responsibility to help our fellow sisters in need. In surah Tawbah, Allah (S) says, “the believers, men and women, are protectors of one another: they enjoin what is just and forbid what is evil…” (9:71).

At all times, and most particularly in times of trials and tribulations, it is the duty of Muslims to stand together helping and supporting one another. Allah has decreed that Muslims should form a tight-knit community or ummah that loves and cares for one another. The Prophet (S) taught that the ummah should act like a body: if one part of the body suffers pain, the other part also suffers. As Muslim sisters, we have a responsibility to support one another in times of need.

At Haute Hijab, we aspire to provide support to those struggling with hijab.  Haute Hijab too is part of the wider community and our service is not only to supply apparel to Muslim women, but also to recognize that community support is needed for those we interact with on a daily basis. As a company, helping our community is part of our core philosophy.

PROOF: RUSSIA Gave $6 Million To Top Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theorist, Democrat Sen. Mark Warner, In 2012


Virginia Democratic Senator and #1 Trump-Russia conspiracy theorist and ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Mark Warner,  made more than $6 million from Russian tech company Yandex in 2012, representing almost 10% of his entire $80 million net worth, according to the Christian Science Monitor. The revelation further calls into question Warner’s role in the ongoing witch hunt for President Trump’s Russian connections.

As far as we know, President Donald J. Trump has made 0% of his net worth from Russian companies. Maybe Warner should investigate his own ties to Russia.

Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner, the , is blocking the White House from appointing a Treasury Department official to oversee financial crimes committed by terrorists.

Warner, worth over $80 million, is one of the Senate’s richest members.

Yandex, based in Moscow, is the largest search engine in Russia. Russia’s social policies around gender, as well as its backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Crimean secession, have proved enormously controversial among Democrats.

Warner won’t allow the appointment of the Treasury Department anti-terror nominee, Sigal Mandelker, to proceed until the Intelligence Committee can examine the finances of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, former adviser Roger Stone, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and ex-foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

“Until we get their documents,” Warner said Wednesday, “I’m not going to support the administration’s nominee for undersecretary of Treasury finance, for terrorism and finance, because they owe us these documents first.”

Here is Warner’s most recent annual financial disclosure statement cover sheet.

The Apples and Oranges (pun intended) of the Trump / Nixon Rhetoric of the Leftists, and the Real Reason he was fired…


It’s like comparing World War II to an exhibition baseball game. Apples and oranges doesn’t do justice to how different these two situations are.

The ink was not yet dry on President Donald Trump’s statement announcing the dismissal of when political opponents began drawing comparisons to President Richard Nixon’s infamous “Saturday Night Massacre.”

Comparisons between Nixon and Trump are already numerous, from commentators ranging from Carl Bernstein to Stephen Colbert. The Late Show has even joked that Trump receives social-media counseling from Nixon’s ghost. But Nixon came from a different time and governed a very different America. Therefore, until the Watergate scandal really became critical in early 1973, Nixon’s presidency went very differently from the way Donald Trump’s has so far, reflecting key differences between that time and this one.

With the Watergate investigation closing in on him, Nixon in October 1973 fired his attorney general and deputy attorney general before he found an official willing to ax the special prosecutor who was investigating the Democratic Party headquarters break-in.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N-Y.) argued that is analogous to Trump’s dismissal of Obama administration holdover Yates for ordering Justice Department lawyers not to defend the president’s executive order freezing the refugee program and travel from seven terrorism-compromised countries.

“We had a Monday night massacre,” he declared. “James Comey, a person of great integrity who follows the law, was fired.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) drew the same conclusion, confirming that she voted against the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be the attorney general. She praised Comey arguing that it took guts.

“That statement took a steel spine to stand up and say, ‘no,’” she said. “It took the courage of [Nixon Attorney General] Elliot Richardson and [Nixon Deputy Attorney General] William Ruckelshaus to stand up to President Nixon. That is what an an FBI director must be willing and able to do.”

But legal experts noted Tuesday that Nixon was trying to obstruct a criminal investigation in which he was implicated, while Trump simply removed an insubordinate political appointee from the previous administration.

“There’s no comparison at all,” said Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center. “This Justice official was insubordinate and should have been fired.”

Andrew McCarthy, who served as lead prosecutor on several high-profile terrorism cases in Manhattan in the 1990s, agreed. “To my mind, he should have been escorted out of the building,” he said.

“It’s like comparing World War II to an exhibition baseball game,” he said. “Apples and oranges doesn’t do justice to how different these two situations are.”

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said Comey acted for clearly personal and political reasons.

“Trump’s move was an anti-corruption move,” he said. “It’s the exact opposite of what Nixon did … This is exactly what we need more of.”

Flaherty said former President Obama almost certainly would have taken the same action against a holdover from his predecessor’s administration. And the holdover official likely would have been “vilified,” not praised in the media, he said.

“It underscores the problem, to me, just how much trouble the media is having covering President Trump,” he said.

A man who played a role in Nixon’s downfall, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, also threw cold water on the “Saturday Night Massacre” storyline.

“There’s a big difference, because the ‘Saturday Night Massacre’ was really about firing the attorney general when Nixon was the target of an investigation and was actively obstructing justice,” he told “CNN Tonight” on Wednesday. “The president is within his rights here to fire the FBI director, that he has that ability.”

For Democrats hoping for fissures between Trump and the GOP majority in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stomped out that bit of wishful thinking.

“What is happening is something that we support, which is, we need to pause and we need to make sure that the vetting standards are up to snuff so that we can guarantee the safety and security of our country,” he told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference on Tuesday. “That is what this does. We want this goal to be achieved.”

A letter obtained by NBC News from Trump to Comey states the president had been advised by administration officials to remove the FBI head.

“I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately,” Trump told Comey.

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgement of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.”

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.”

In a memorandum written by newly confirmed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, numerous reasons are given for Comey’s dismissal.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he’s seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, accusing Democrats of pushing a “huge myth.”

Paul said Democrats will now clamor for a special prosecutor to look into the matter following the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” he said on “Fox & Friends” today.

Paul said he has not even heard an “accusation” on what crime Democrats believe may have been committed.

“[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” said Paul.

He said Comey’s firing “could not happen soon enough,” calling out Democrats for criticizing the move despite previously declaring they had lost faith in Comey after his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Which brings us to the most important underlying reason for the dismissal…

“Separation of Church and State” – These Words Do Not Mean What You May Think They Mean…


Constitutional revisionists think the phrase separation of church and state is in the First Amendment, however these words do not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. And as with ALL parts of the Constitution, it places restrictions on THE GOVERNMENT, and NOT THE PEOPLE!  Together, the establishment clause and the free exercise clause form the basis of the American concept of separation of church and state, which compels the government to give equal treatment to all religions — and to respect the absence of religion, and which grants U.S. citizens the freedom to embrace or reject any faith they choose. NOTHING MORE – NOTHING LESS!

“Separation of church and state” was a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which reads:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

This portion of the Constitution speaks against a state-imposed faith.

It tells us that you don’t want a national religion, a state-coerced national religion, a one-size-fits-all, everybody-has-to-join system. The Founders were concerned that with a strong national government there would be a national religion. They wanted to allow the states a free hand to collaborate with religion in their important work of fostering a citizenry.

Our nation was predicated on unalienable rights with governance through family, church and community, each rightfully sovereign within its sphere. Human dignity, legal equality and personal freedom reflect biblical values imparted on Western Civilization, which retains these values in secular form while expunging their Author from public discourse.

Americans are frequently reminded of what the revisionists incorrectly deem our greatest achievement: “Separation of Church and State.” Crosses are ripped down in parks. Prayer has been banished from schools and the ACLU rampages to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.

The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly misinterpreted the Establishment Clause to mean that religion must be removed entirely from public life.

Our forefathers would never countenance the restrictions on religion exacted today.

In his second inaugural address, March 4, 1805, President Thomas Jefferson stated: “In matters of religion I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the Constitution independent of the powers of the General Government. I have therefore undertaken, on no occasion, to prescribe the religious exercise suited to it; but have left them, as the Constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of state and church authorities by the several religious societies.”

Jefferson wrote to Samuel Miller, Jan. 23, 1808: “I consider the government of the United States as interdicted by the Constitution from inter-meddling with religious institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises. This results not only from the provision that no law shall be made respecting the establishment or free exercise of religion, but from that also which reserves to the states the powers not delegated to the United States. …”

Jefferson continued: “Certainly no power to prescribe any religious exercise, or to assume authority in religious discipline, has been delegated to the General government. It must then rest with the States as far as it can be in any human authority. … I do not believe it is for the interest of religion to invite the civil magistrate to direct its exercises, its discipline, or its doctrines. … Every religious society has a right to determine for itself the times for these exercises, and the objects proper for them, according to their own particular tenets.”

It is obvious that from Thomas Jefferson’s compiled work that terms like, “fence” or “wall” were used within the context of describing the importance of limited government to prevent its interference with religious activities.

Thomas Jefferson intentionally used the phrases “self-evident truths” and “endowed by our Creator” when he wrote The Declaration of Independence. The Founding Fathers most certainly considered the Declaration as a legal document, beginning with: “IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America;” and closing with: “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled…”

The Declaration of Independence is listed in the first volume of the U.S. Code under the heading Organic Laws of the United States. U.S. Code is the permanent law of the United States. “Organic” is defined as “of, relating to, or constituting the law by which a government or organization exists.”

The Organic Laws are comprised of four laws:

  1. The Declaration of Independence
  2. The Articles of Confederation
  3. The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and,
  4. The Constitution.

When a U.S. President, a member of Congress, or a military official is sworn into office they are required to take an oath to defend the Constitution.

If the Declaration of Independence is really not a governing document, then Organic Law is irrelevant, and the Constitution and our entire system of government is illegal.

Fortunately, that is not the case.

Why Did Trump Want to Cut the NIH Budget? Their Human Genome Project is a Good Example – A $2.7 Billion Fraud!


Congress sent President Donald Trump a multi-billion dollar poke in the eye Monday, refusing to slash medical spending as Trump proposed and instead giving the National Institutes of Health a $2 billion raise.

Trump had proposed slashing NIH by $1.2 billion for the rest of 2017 to help pay for his proposed increases in defense spending. Instead, Congress gave the NIH an extra $2 billion for the next 6 months, bumping its total 2017 budget to $34 billion.

Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole, a Republican who chairs the appropriations subcommittee that oversees NIH funding and who sits on the budget committee, said funding medical research is something Republicans and Democrats agree on easily.

pork bar·rel
ˈpôrk ˌberəl/
noun
  1. the use of government funds for projects designed to please voters or legislators and win votes.
    “political pork barrel for the benefit of their respective sponsors”

In 1990, Congress established funding for the Human Genome Project and set a target completion date of 2005. Here we are in 2017, and they are asking for more funding for their “humanitarian” project.

A seemingly commonplace meeting kicked off a firestorm of controversy. Last May, more than 100 experts in genetics and bioengineering convened at Harvard Medical School for a meeting that was closed to the public — attendees were asked not to contact news media or to post about the meeting on social media.

The same group is getting back together in New York City next week.

To the meeting organizers, last year’s secretive measures were, counterintuitively, to make sure as many people heard about the project as possible. They were submitting a paper about the project to a scientific journal and were discouraged from sharing the information publicly before it was published.

But there’s another reason why this group of scientists, while encouraging debate and public involvement, would be wary of attracting too much attention. Their project is an effort to synthesize DNA, including human DNA. Researchers will start with simpler organisms, such as microbes and plants, but hope to ultimately create strands of human genetic code. One of the group’s organizers, Jef Boeke, director of the Institute for Systems Genetics at NYU School of Medicine, told CNBC that incorporating synthesized DNA into mammalian (or even human) cells could happen in four to five years.

This project follows in the footsteps of the Human Genome Project (HGP), the 13-year, $2.7 billion project that enabled scientists to first decode the human genome. “HGP allowed us to read the genome, but we still don’t completely understand it,” said Nancy Kelley, the coordinator of the new effort, dubbed GP-write.

But why all the secrecy, for this supposedly incredible, life-changing breakthrough? What are they hiding?

The entire concept of the project is a total farce!

Genetics is an attempt by materialistic scientists to offer a purely materialist view of inheritance and development of not just physical bodies but non-physical inherited attributes such as instinctive behaviors and cellular function.

According to the theory of genetics, physical gene sequences contained in chromosomes found in each cell in your body are a “blueprint” for all your body’s physical structures, biochemical functions and inherited behavioral patterns. This blueprint, the theory goes, contains ALL the instructions needed to create a complete human form with all its physical structures, physiological functions and inherited behaviors fully represented and complete.

Because of the enormous complexity of the human body, organ function, cell structures and instinctive behaviors, it was once believed that humans must possess somewhere around 2 million protein-coding genes. The Human Genome Project was launched in 1990 with the widespread belief that when it was finished, it would “unlock” all the mysteries of the origins of disease in humans. It was also believed that when the human genome fully mapped, scientists would be able to create humans in any form they wanted, including humans with extra arms or legs, humans free of all disease, humans with “enhanced” physical powers, and so on.

At the start of the Human Genome Project, everybody “knew” that humans were far more complex than, say, a roundworm, which only has about 20,000 protein-coding genes. This is why estimates of the number of genes in a human ranged from 100,000 to 2 million. Scientists were absolutely sure that humans were far more complex than a tiny roundworm, and therefore humans needed far more genes.

The Human Genome Project suffers an “epic fail”

The first draft of the Human Genome Project was published in the year 2,000. Far from being a breakthrough that would end all human disease, its findings utterly shattered the mythology of genetics as the sole explanation for all inheritance and physical development. Why? Because the Human Genome Project found that humans have only about 20,000 protein-coding genes, roughly the same number as the roundworm.

Huh? A human being has about the same number of protein-coding genes as a roundworm? Yes. And that’s straight out of the mouths of human genome researchers who are, themselves, hard-core materialists.

By comparison, the common fruit fly has about 15,000 genes, only marginally less than a human. And yet it is obvious to any intelligent observer than a human being is considerably more complex than a fruit fly and a roundworm. So why didn’t the Human Genome Project find a lot more genes that code proteins in humans?

Genetic inheritance theory shattered…

The findings of the multi-billion-dollar Human Genome Project shattered the mythology of genetic materialism, sending nearly the entire scientific community into a tailspin and forcing “the great genetic cover-up” to begin.

Human genes simply needed “more research” to be understood, scientists exclaimed. And since the year 2000, that research has continued to no avail. The cover-up continues…

The truth is that there isn’t enough data storage in 20,000 genes to hold a blueprint for a human being.

Human DNA data storage capacity…

Allow me to explain this from a computer science point of view, as many of you know I founded a very successful computer software company and was the head of R&D for many computer science projects, including the popular new SCIENCE.naturalnews.com which uses advanced statistical algorithms to analyze scientific concepts across millions of published studies.

The human genome contains about 3 billion “base pairs” of genes. Each base pair can exist in one of four possible combinations of the four bases that make up DNA: Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Cytosine (C), and Guanine (G).

From a digital storage point of view — as DNA is “digital” in its format — a base pair is equivalent to two bits of binary data, which can represent four possible states as follows:

00
01
10
11

In computer storage vernacular, a “byte” is eight bits of data, such as:

01011010

Four DNA base pairs, then, makes one byte of data.

Given that there are roughly 3 billion base pairs in the human genome, this equates to roughly about 750MB of data storage capacity.

It turns out this number is shockingly small. 750MB is smaller than the file of a typical modern video game. It’s smaller than a movie on a DVD, in fact. It’s so small that a typical miniature thumb drive you might buy at Best Buy can actually store over 20 times as much data (that’s merely a 16 GB thumb drive). You can buy a 16GB SD card right now on Amazon.com for a mere $12.

750MB of data is so small that no one can explain how it could possibly account for a human body with extraordinary complexity while somehow encompassing physical, structural, functional and behavioral inheritance as well.

To get a grasp of the complexity of the human body, realize that your body is made of 60 – 90trillion cells. Each cell is its own ecosystem with highly complex functions including cell energy production, waste removal, cell membrane function, the nucleus command control center, and so on.

Your body manufactures 10 million red blood cells every hour. It has a capacity to heal damaged tissues almost everywhere. Your skin and intestines are being slowly replaced with new cells every minute. Your immune system is incredibly complex and highly capable, representing the most advanced system of nanotechnology that modern science has ever witnessed.

On top of all this, you are born with innate behaviors and the ability to develop, all on your own, the behavioral skills to walk, talk, focus your eyes, digest foods, eliminate waste, sweat, breathe and much more. Meanwhile, your body accomplishes billions of chemical reactions every second without you even knowing it. Somehow, every cell, organ and organ system in your body knows what to do to keep you alive and functioning.

Your body and its functions are unimaginably complex. Simply cataloging the structure and function of all the cells in your body right now would take countless terabytes of data — more than a million times larger than “megabytes” of data.

Yet the entire human genome delivers only 750MB worth of data storage. Obviously, this is wholly insufficient to describe the entire structure, function and development of a human being. No matter how the desperate materialists try to keep us focused on human genes, it flat-out isn’t possible to store a full blueprint of the human form in 750MB of data.

The human genome, therefore, is not the entire blueprint of human development. Although some genes do obviously code for some physical characteristics (such as eye color), genes alone do not contain the full blueprint. There must be something else that also contributes morphological information in addition to DNA.

The Human Genome Project, to the shock of nearly all materialists, ultimately proved exactly the opposite of what scientists had hoped. It proved that genes alone do not explain inheritance.

The materialists were horrified by this finding. To this very day, they are pouring over human genome data, desperately trying to find some “meta data” that would explain all inheritance. What they refuse to acknowledge is that there is a non-physical field of inheritance patterns that functions as an overlay to the human genome, interacting with it and enhancing its scope with non-physical encoding of additional information needed to develop a complete human form.

That field is called the “morphic resonance” field, and it was proposed by one of the most brilliant, revolutionary scientific thinkers of our time, Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and author of “Science Set Free.”

Morphic resonance fields infuriate materialists…

The idea of morphic resonance infuriates materialists — and nearly all modern-day scientists are materialists — because the presence of a non-physical field of information naturally leads to the most dangerous idea of all to materialist science: the idea of consciousness.

This idea that your body as a whole, as well as each cell in your body, can tap into a field of information which encodes the “memory” of what a human form is supposed to be threatens the very pillars of materialistic science, upon which nearly the entire pharmaceutical industry is based, by the way. This is why materialist scientists are desperately attempting to defend the human genome as the single source of all the information needed to develop a human body, even though the human genome clearly doesn’t have the storage capacity to represent an entire body (not to mention inherited physiological functions and behavioral inheritance).

The best place to read and learn about morphic resonance is at Rupert Sheldrake’s website:
http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/pap…

I also recommend his amazingly insightful book, A New Science of Life.

Keep in mind that if you read about Rupert Sheldrake from any materialistic science website — including Scientific American which is 100% pro-Monsanto, pro-GMO and anti GMO labeling, by the way — you are going to read vicious attacks against Sheldrake from desperate materialists who brand morphic resonance as “magical thinking.”

This is especially comic, given that these same materialists believe the entire universe in which we live spontaneously appeared from nowhere without cause or reason through a process they call the “Big Bang.” Somehow, the big bang isn’t magical thinking to the materialists, but the idea of a non-physical field of inheritance is magical thinking. It’s almost like these people have never heard of gravity: yet another invisible field that affects all living things.

How does your hand know it’s a hand?

Another key problem with the theory of genetic inheritance is that even though all the cells across your body are supposed to contain the same exact genetic code, somehow the cells in your hand knew they were supposed to grow into a hand, not a foot or an ear, for example.

Conventional genetics has no explanation for this. How does a cell “know” it’s supposed to be a specialized cell functioning as a tiny part of the whole? If every blood cell in your body contains the DNA for your entire body, how does it “know” to form itself into a blood cells and not, for example, a skin cell?

Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic resonance explanation provides an answer. The cell taps into a knowledge field — a non-physical pattern blueprint — and through influence with that field, the cell knows to activate only the genes that code for it to form a blood cell. The local physical genes accomplish the protein coding, but the morphic resonance field directs the pattern of which genes to activate. This is how morphic fields interact with DNA.

The human genome, in other words, works hand in hand with a non-physical information field that keeps physical form development organized so that the resulting form is a human. The morphic resonance field “knows” the pattern of being human because it is a pattern that has been reinforced by billions of other humans who came before you and contributed to the resonance of the field.

This explains the missing link in DNA — the fact that DNA alone cannot store the entire blueprint of the human form. The master blueprint is actually found in the non-physical morphic field. Local DNA are simply “protein builders” that follow the morphic resonance blueprint.

Just like there is an energetic pattern for a human being, there’s also a different energetic template for an oak tree, and it overlays the genes from an oak tree seed, directing it to form a fully-grown oak tree. For every cell, every organ, every organ system and every life form on our planet (and across the universe), there is a morphic resonance field that provides the template overlay which affects local gene activation.

Learn more about morphic resonance…

This article, of course, is only a short summary of the concept of morphic resonance. To learn more, I encourage you to read books by Rupert Sheldrake, and visit the Sheldrake.org website.

Keep in mind that Sheldrake’s theories absolute infuriate materialist scientists. The journal Nature actually suggested that Sheldrake should be burned at the stake… like a witch, I suppose. TED talks essentially banned Sheldrake from speaking because he dared mention the idea of “consciousness.”

Everywhere across the fatally closed-minded community of materialist science, Sheldrake is considered to be worse than a demon… he is a non-believer in the Church of Materialism! And there is no greater sin to today’s cult-like science community than non-belief in materialism.

This is why Sheldrake’s ideas will be viciously attacked, demonized and denied… up until the day they are finally embraced and accepted as the “new science of life.” In a hundred years, Sheldrake will likely be remembered as far more important to science than even Charles Darwin. His ideas are not merely revolutionary, but desperately needed to advance science beyond the limiting realm of materialism. If science does not expand its scope beyond chemical structures, it will never understand life and will always remain mystified and frustrated about why genes still don’t control much in the way of inheritance.

Watch for more coverage of Rupert Sheldrake here on Natural News, where our ideas are rooted in science yet not limited by the artificial confines of materialism. We also hope to interview Sheldrake soon and bring you the interview that TED won’t allow you to hear.

Beyond the debunked science, questions for faith believers…

1. Where is the gene for creativity? If creative works (songs, poems, fiction novels, etc.) are merely the work of mechanistic brains following genetic instructions, then all the lifelong works of creative individuals (musicians, artists, novelists, etc.) must somehow be encoded in the DNA before birth. Where is all this creativity encoded?

2. How does a blood cell know to make itself into a blood cell and not a skin cell?

3. Why is most physical inheritance unable to be traced to DNA? (The “heritability problem.”)

4. If there is not enough storage capacity in the human genome to fully describe the human form, then where does the rest of the blueprint come from?

5. Where is the genetic code for love, compassion and cooperation, without which human civilization never would have survived?

6. If human consciousness is an illusion, as materialists claim, then it can have no impact on human behavior, which is purely mechanistic, they insist. So then why did the “illusion of consciousness” evolve in human beings if it serves no purpose? This contradicts one of the more fundamental tenants of natural selection.

7. Are you, yourself, purely a mechanistic biological robot suffering under the illusion of consciousness? And if so, then why should we listen to anything you have to say in the first place?

America Struggles In a Time of Trump Rebuilding – Time To Turn The Page


Presidential elections are always something of a national Rorschach test…

The reaction to candidates, like the perception of inkblots, helps to divulge the nation’s character, underlying disorders and emotional condition. Donald Trump’s unexpected victory showed that America had a split personality.

It also revealed that, among his 62 million supporters, rage and fear were over-riding emotions. “Make America Great Again” not only became a mission statement but a nostalgic catch-all. For many of his white working class supporters, it implied a return to an era when the homeland was more homogenised and the world was less globalised.

What has become clear since Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address is that he has changed the presidency more than the presidency has changed him.

The vocabulary of President Trump, if not all his policies, is much the same as that of candidate Trump. To the White House he has brought the same aggression and plain-speaking that characterised his insurgent campaign.

The first 100 days of an administration, though in many ways a bogus measure, can also be diagnostic. They can reveal the character of a presidency and set the tone.

At his inaugural ball he vowed to keep tweeting. By choosing Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” for his first dance, he also gave us a musical clue as to how he would govern. Trump would be Trump. The anti-politician had morphed into the anti-president.

From his ongoing refusal to release his tax returns to his stonewalling of requests to disclose visitor logs at the White House, he has indicated normal rules do not apply to him.

All this continues to horrify his critics but not most of his supporters. They voted for unorthodoxy, and seem to have granted him dispensation to flout norms so long as he delivers results.

And yet, he has received highest marks when he is at his most conventionally presidential.

His speech to the joint session of Congress, which was similar in language and tone to normal State of the Union addresses, was probably the highpoint of his first 100 days. It got far better reviews than his inaugural, both from Republicans and some Democrats.

His decision to strike Syria also trod the path of orthodoxy. Cool-headed and cogent, his late-night statement explaining his decision to strike was also standard presidential fare. Even some of his detractors remarked how in these two moments he truly assumed the mantles of president and commander-in-chief.

Lauded by many Democrats who wished Obama had enforced his red line on chemical weapons, the strike on Syria angered some hardline loyalists.

There’s an argument to be made that Trump is at his most successful in foreign affairs when he’s at his most unpredictable for the simple reason that is when he’s most feared. The Assad regime will surely hesitate before ordering another chemical strike.

Nato’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said he’s already seeing the effect of Trump’s focus on financial burden-sharing within the military alliance. The American aid worker Aya Hijazi was released after three years in detention only when Trump raised her case with President Sisi.

At the United Nations, there’s a new focus on reform, especially of peacekeeping operations. This is partly because there is a new reformist Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, but mainly because of the fear that the US, by far the organisation’s biggest donor, could pull funding. Trump has brought a fear factor to the American presidency often absent during the Obama years.

The Trump administration clearly believes “the era of strategic patience” towards Kim Jong-un is over, and that sabre rattling will jolt the Beijing into pressuring Pyongyang. The next 100 days, presumably, will tell.

Overall, there’s a “good cop bad cop” dynamic to the Trump administration’s diplomacy. Mainstream foreign policy types such as Defence Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson adopt the more conventional approach. Trump lends menace, often through his tweets.

Sometimes the very administration seems to have a split personality. Yet the first 100 days have probably yielded more results in the foreign realm than the domestic.

Noticeable in these first 100 days has been the corporatisation of the presidency. There’s a chairman-of-the-board feel to his daily routine, with its meetings and photo opportunities that often place him in a leather-backed chair in the presidential boardroom – the West Wing basically has two, the Roosevelt Room and the Cabinet Room – surrounded by corporate chiefs. His cabinet is also packed with fellow billionaires and multi-millionaires.

There’s been criticism that Trump spends so much time at resorts owned by the Trump Organization.

An aim of staffing the administration with so many executives was to vest government with corporate know-how and efficiency.

Victories are often lost in the swirl of controversy. Illegal crossings over the southern border have fallen sharply, by 40% during the first month of Trump’s presidency, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

That’s the steepest decline since 2009. With immigration arrests up by almost a third in the first month, there’s a feeling among his supporters that he is delivering on his pledge to protect America’s border, even if construction has not yet started on his famed wall.

Trump would argue he has already made the homeland safer.

The hostile commentary on him is similar to the scorn heaped on Ronald Reagan. Yet the movie star president is now widely seen as the leader who, by winning the Cold War, ended America’s long national nightmare after Vietnam and Watergate.

Lyndon Baines Johnson was pilloried as a racist vulgarian, but nonetheless enacted transformative legislation such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act, dismantling segregation, and launching Medicare.

History remembers John F Kennedy’s early presidency for the elegance of his inaugural address and the photogenic beauty of his New Frontier, but his first months in office were full of missteps.

They included the Bay of Pigs, a string of congressional setbacks and a disastrous summit with Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna, which emboldened the Soviet leader to build the Berlin Wall. While Trump cannot yet boast much of a record of accomplishment in these first 100 days, there are still 1361 to go.

Donald Trump’s executive power has continually been constrained. After signing that early executive order banning entrants from seven mainly-Muslim countries, the courts intervened to block him.

With TrumpCare, it wasn’t the courts that blocked Trump but Congress. As he sought to repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump could not even secure a simple majority in a House of Representatives under Republican control.

The Republican leadership, frustrated by these checks, successfully removed one of them: the use of the filibuster in blocking nominees to America’s highest court – in this instance, Trump’s nominee Neil Gorsuch.

This did not involve an amendment to the constitution, rather a revision of Senate rules, but it was nonetheless momentous. This nuclear option, as it is called, delivered a clear win for the president: the elevation of Judge Gorsuch to the bench.

However, the filibuster remains intact to block his legislative agenda, and Democrats will use it to thwart Trump.

Just as Republicans, the great practitioners of the politics of No, used the constitution to stymie Barack Obama, Democrats are relying upon it to impede Donald Trump. For them, the constitution must now seem timeless and timely. A number of Democrats have told me that the genius of the Founding Fathers was to anticipate this kind of presidency.

In these first 100 days, we have been reminded of the power of states and municipalities. We have seen an inversion of the doctrine of states’ rights. For decades, states’ rights was the battle-cry of white supremacists determined to uphold segregation in defiance of federal court orders demanding integration. Now progressive states are using this principle.

Some of the biggest cities in the country, including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC, are wilfully obstructing Trump’s immigration crackdown. Thus, sanctuary cities have become to the progressive left what segregationist citadels were to the racist right, emblematic battlefields in a tug of war between local government and the federal government.

Protest power has also emerged as a significant force, as something akin to a national passion play has unfolded on the streets. The sea of pink pussy hats at the massive woman’s marches on the first weekend of the presidency vividly highlighted a new sense of personal political empowerment: people ready to take matters into their own hands.

Constrained by Congress, the courts and his own party, so far this has not been an imperial presidency, the phrase coined by the historian Arthur M Schlesinger Jr to describe the Nixon White House, which was accused, even before the Watergate break-in, of pushing constitutional bounds.

Rather it has been an inhibited presidency, in which Donald Trump has been made all too aware of the limits of his executive power.

Donald Trump’s promise to Make America Great Again was primarily an economic pledge, and there were early signs of a Trump Bump on Wall Street and Main Street.

Just three trading days after the new president took the oath of office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average broke through the 20,000 mark for the first time in its history. Investors expected him to slash corporate taxes and set fire to business regulations. Not since 2000, a report suggested last month, has consumer confidence been so buoyant.

As for the impact of Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” doctrine, it is too early to judge. Industry groups have voiced concerns it will raise costs, making it prohibitively expensive to build the new bridges and roads. The tech sector is worried Hire American policies will block or discourage high-skilled immigrants. The tourism industry is reporting a “Trump Slump,” because of the off-putting effect of the travel ban and its author.

One sector that has undoubtedly benefited from a Trump bump is the media. The New York Times and Washington Post have seen subscriptions soar. CNN, a network of which obituaries were being written only a few years ago, is enjoying a ratings windfall. Twitter, whose once stagnant user numbers have risen, is finally winning again.

Despite high-profile exits, Fox News remains the most influential news channel in America, if only because its breakfast show Fox and Friends is what Trump watches in the morning.

Overall, the response of the US journalistic community to Trump’s presidency has been to become more adversarial. Reporters like Jim Acosta, anchors like Jake Tapper, and even mild-mannered Wolf Blitzer have adopted a more hard-edged approach. The New York Times has replaced bland headlines with more judgmental wording.

Elsewhere, cultural lines are being blurred, an inevitable response perhaps to a president who turned politics in a new reality show genre. Comedians, faced with the dilemma of satirising a self-satirising White House, have adopted a more journalistic persona. John Oliver and Samantha Bee mix gags with serious reportage, much of it directed against Trump.

Stephen Colbert, who struggled at first as David Letterman’s successor after shedding his mock right-wing persona, may overtake apolitical Jimmy Fallon in the late-night ratings.

The mimicry of Alec Baldwin and the casting of Melissa McCarthy as Sean “Spicey” Spicer has once again made SNL appointment viewing.

Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America, which imagines as president Charles Lindbergh, the aviator who became the spokesman of the America First Committee in the early years of World War II, has also enjoyed a revival. Hulu is streaming a dramatisation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which imagines a totalitarian America.

On Broadway, a stage adaptation of 1984 is in the works.

Next month unveils the fifth season of House of Cards, but in the wake of accusations of Russian meddling, its plotlines, once considered so outlandish, now seem more run-of-the-mill, a case perhaps of life overtaking art.

There has long been two Americas, one that favours pick-up trucks over Prius hybrids, Walmart over Whole Foods, Duck Dynasty over This American Life. This age of Trump, as well as accentuating those divisions, has brought with it new identifying markers.

Do you wear a scarlet Make America Great Again baseball cap or a pink woollen hat? Would you buy an Ivanka Trump dress? Do you agree with Alex Jones, the host of the far-right Infowars, or Van Jones, CNN’s leading pundit? Or, more simply, do you have faith in the president? Increasingly, how you respond to Trump determines which America you inhabit.

Many Rust Belt voters continue to adore Trump because liberals hate him so. They voted for the billionaire partly to punch sneering bicoastal liberals in the nose. They are enjoying the sight of elite blood being shed in such quantities.

Because of the shadow cast by the Russian allegations, these first 100 days have sometimes felt like the final days of an ailing administration. Trump is routinely cast as a modern-day Richard Nixon. Yet while it is difficult sometimes to see how this administration can remain viable in its present form, it is harder to imagine how it would be brought to a premature end.

Barring some catastrophic revelation emerging from the FBI’s investigation into Team Trump’s alleged links with the Kremlin or some massive financial scandal, the Republican leadership is unlikely to move against him. In the unlikely event that it launched impeachment proceedings, here the constitution is his friend.

It is hard to dislodge an incumbent president.

The Founding Fathers, who came up with a governing model that has constrained Trump, also came up with an electoral model, the Electoral College, which has already helped him and may do so again. That will be true if the Rust Belt remains a stronghold.

The Founding Fathers, who came up with a governing model that has constrained Trump, also came up with an electoral model, the Electoral College, which has already helped him and may do so again. That will be true if the Rust Belt remains a stronghold.

The overwhelming sense, based on the popular vote in November and opinion polls since, is that more Americans are anti-Trump than pro.

But the sense also is that many blue-collar battlers remain fiercely loyal. So to write him off would be to repeat the same analytical mistake commentators have made since he first announced for the presidency, that of underestimation.

For while Liberals regard their new president as a national embarrassment, most of his supporters continue to view him as a potential national saviour.

One hundred days into a presidency the like of which this country has never seen before, the state of the union is disunion, and the battle continues.
