“We cannot stand against big government at home while supporting it abroad. We cannot talk about fiscal responsibility while spending trillions on occupying and bullying the rest of the world. We cannot talk about the budget deficit and spiraling domestic spending without looking at the costs of maintaining an American empire of more than 700 military bases in more than 120 foreign countries. We cannot pat ourselves on the back for cutting a few thousand dollars from a nature preserve or an inner-city swimming pool at home while turning a blind eye to a Pentagon budget that nearly equals those of the rest of the world combined.” – Ron Paul
Americans stood witness to the recent political theater and the parade of lies that was the Senate Judiciary Committee — or rather parade of unsubstantiated claims being presented as proven fact — and watched in amazement as the very same previously stated conjecture was floated as proof(even new proof by some) and further verification that ‘the Russians influenced the election.’
We watched as James Comey was thrown under the Trump bus as yet another sacrifice to the Deep State gods, and even still, this new development is shrouded in theories and differing explanations, one which has garnered the collective attention of the entirety of mainstream and independent media, and this in and of itself should tell us all we need to know. Even if this wasn’t planned, this massive attention-grabber will be used nonetheless; “Never let a good tragedy go to waste” as Clinton, among others, once said.
It would seem this was done in order to refocus the discussion back on the Russian narrative, still with no evidence. This effort was seemingly quite effective, as that is now once again a trending topic. Opponents of Trump are making the claim that he fired Comey in what they see as an “extremely transparent attempt to stop the Russian investigation,” which is indeed possible, but does not seem as likely with what had become of that topic–it had all but been forgotten save for the most ardent liberal extremist who simply could not accept the possibility that Clinton lost because she is a horrendous human being.
It was the move to fire Comey itself that actually revitalized the “Russian” discussion point. It is always important to remember that, to date, nothing substantial or even tangible has been shown to the American people, only conjecture, speculation and ‘anonymous intelligence officials’ who promise they can see the proof, and its very real, and very damning, yet always seem to have a flimsy unintelligible reason for not showing anyone. And we should also note that there is in fact verifiable, on paper evidence that Tony Podesta took Russian money during the election. So to anyone paying attention, this should scream orchestration, even quite possibly involving Comey himself.
The point is that we need to stop letting ourselves believe that any governmental figure is here to help the average individual. Not only has history given us a constant and clear insight into that fact, but our current representation has shown that truth quite vividly in recent years. There may indeed be those such as the Pauls, or Tulsi Gabbard, who are trying to create positive change, but at the end of the day, if we have not yet learned our lesson, throughout our subjugated history, on how government actually works, then we are simply doomed to repeat it, as they say.
Governments tell us what we can do, when we can do it, and for how long, and they tell us we are free. They then have the nerve to turn around and demand that we show our appreciation and patriotism, lest we be labeled a “domestic threat.”
I am here to tell you that we are all free human beings, and no government can take that away from us. They can suppress and hinder that freedom, but it is a freedom that is innate, and comes from a natural law that supersedes anything created by man.
I am here to tell you that it is time for all free human beings to stand up and speak in one voice, “We Stand Together.” African, Russian, European, American or any other, it is our governments that have us divided, it is our very patriotism that begets this hate rising around the world.
One should be proud of their heritage, yet not to the extent that it justifies harm done unto another, for power, control, or prosperity. Without these authoritarian government institutions vying for power and control, humanity would function much as it does today, with the exception of the massive war efforts and the surrounding facade that creates the false logic needed to justify the killing of millions of innocent human beings that have no desire to fight, or hurt another, yet are held captive by their government’s forceful need to “protect its national interest” which usually means protecting not for the citizenry, but rather the future government agenda that has little or none to do with that average individual and their personal happiness and liberty.
I am calling on all free human beings to look past their petty contrived differences, and see the current construct for what it is. Just as the fiat currency that rules their empire, the moment we no longer believe in its power, it will cease to exist.
Welcome to another episode of TLAV Political Roundtable where we break down the week of American politics, and discuss the implication on American life, and the world. This week, we break down the recent decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, and the clear possibility that it is all meant to distract from larger events; we discuss the judge who recently declared the Constitution void, showing just how little American rights mean in modern society, and the new bill that could fine a protestor up to one million dollars. That, and much much more.
