Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (4/18/18).
Some breaking news to begin with today, which was brought to my attention by Brain Richmond, 11 members of Congress have officially requested an investigation into the crimes of Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Loretta Lynch & Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. A memo was sent to Jeff Sessions, Christopher Wray (FBI Director) And John Huber (US Attorney for the District of Utah), on behalf of 11 Republican members of Congress, calling attention to criminal acts and calling for investigation of, and legal action against, these 6 people (a summarized list of the crimes called out included):
James Comey – Comey’s mihalnding of the Clinton investigation and decision not to charge her for plainly apparent crimes — even before interviewing 17 of the key witness many of whom where her closest aids — his “questionable conduct vis-a-vis President Donald Trump” and him illegally leaking info, and misleading Congress under oath.
Hillary Clinton – The Fusion GPS research that led to the Steele dossier and her hiding payments of its funding during mandatory disclosures to the FEC.
Loretta Lynch – Her threats of reprisal to the former FBI informant who tried to come forward in 2016 with insight into the Uranium One deal.
Andrew McCabe – His “lack of candor in the Clinton investigation and under oath on multiple occasions” and essentially leaking info to the media.
Peter Strzok and Lisa Page – Interference in the Clinton investigation, eliminating evidence of her illegal use of a personal email server and presenting false or unverified info at the FISA court.
In addition a general reprisal for everyone who signed the Carter Page warrant which contained the unverified and or false info.
It is important not to jump to conclusions or even to get your hopes up, as this could ultimately go nowhere. At this point, it is merely a request for investigation, but still great to see. I have been harping on the lack of accountability for most of the political elite, all of these names included, so this is certainly a step in the right direction. I will be joining Brain Richmond on his channel with Titus Frost tonight to discuss this development so be sure and tune in.
Today’s episode also covers some other very important news, as usual, not the least of which is an older statement from British Petroleum (BP Oil) that really stood out to me. Essentially saying that oil spills in fact bring “a welcome boost to local economies.” This just left me speechless and it perfectly aligned with what I have been saying all week.
Just like yesterday’s story about how Seattle spends over 1 billion dollar a year in a feigned attempt to help the homeless, when in reality the money goes to corporations, medical groups and insurance. Which do to some degree help with immediate problems the homeless may have, but all while it would only cost 192 million a year to completely house and care for all of the homeless population in King County. The point being, it’s not about helping these people, it’s about increasing the budget and scratching the back of those profiting from their destitution, usually because it helps their political careers to do so, while pretending to be a humanitarian.
We see these huge oil companies being continually reckless and not being held accountable, because they are not incentivized to do so, even twisting their destruction of our environment and ecosystems as some sort of economic upturn for those involved. Think of the sociopathic mentality one must have in order to make such a claim. At the end of the day, it benefits them either way. They run fast and loose to save money, and when that inevitably creates an eco-disaster, they simply utilize either their own companies for the clean up, literally profiting from their own mistake, as well as certain groups they work with, thereby helping their own connections. All while the politicians are in their pockets and lining their own. And of course the oil companies are hit with a fine that is a mere fraction of the profits they make in the same amount of time.
This is the nature of our political climate in this country. Just as the conflicts we create in the Middle East are lining the pockets of munitions manufacturers and foreign NGOs whose sole means of revenue is war, and the US government itself as the world’s leading Arms dealer. Literally selling bombs and weapons to countries fighting the wars it creates. This is the same in every aspect of American politics. Until we begin to see that, acknowledge that, and take a stand for change, this deadly cycle will carry on, and at one point, maybe in the near future, there will be no turning back.
Please take the information discussed in the video below and research for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. As anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
