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.
As I expected, the release of the memo is not the end of anything, to the contrary, it seems to be the continuation of the same division manipulation that continues to drive people back into the two-party deception while pulling their attention away from the real agenda at play.
Trump’s dangerous expansion of the drone war has authoritatively destroyed any illusion that Trump would genuinely put “America first” and put an end to dangerous military operations abroad that only serve to exacerbate the horrendously bungled War on Terror. For instance, after gutting the already lax regulations on drone strikes and giving the CIA free rein to kill whomever they choose, it took Trump only seven months to surpass the number of civilian deaths that occurred during Obama’s entire eight-year presidency.
So the CIA is authorized to carry out unilateral drone strikes without anyone else’s approval – and no one voted the CIA into power as representatives of the people. That puts a bit of a crimp on the clinging idea that because trump was voted in, his illegal wars are the “will of the people.” No one voted for the CIA that I can remember, and yet they are killing in the name of the American people.
Another point to consider, is that all this information about the inherently corrupt nature of our intelligence agencies is coming to light (as if we didn’t already know that) yet here is the CIA carrying out massively destructive and indiscriminate bombing campaigns with zero oversight. There is just no justification for the over 90% civilian casualties in these airstrikes other than that they simply do not even consider their lives – they just don’t care.
The author makes the point that the reactions of Congress before and after the memo’s release reveal much more than the actual contents. She also addresses the very same concern I had yesterday which was that these are only unsubstantiated accusations at this point, yet many are treating this memo as proof of “everything,” while in reality, it is largely nothing that we didn’t already know.
The article reads:
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing that Americans are starting to look critically at the power dynamics in their country, but the partisan filters they’ve slapped over their eyes are causing mass confusion and delusion. Now everyone who questions the CIA is a Russian agent and the term “deep state” suddenly means “literally anyone who doesn’t like Donald Trump”.
Nonetheless, there have been some extremely important revelations as a result of this memo; they just haven’t come from the contents of the memo itself. In the same way that cybersecurity analysts observe the metadata underlying hacked files rather than the contents of the files themselves, political analysts have been pointing out that a lot can be learned about the political establishment by looking at its response to the possibility of the memo’s release.
“Now it is clear to all,” WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange tweeted. “The claims about how the ‘Nunes’ memo would destroy ‘national security’ were lies. Classification stickers are used by bureaucrats trying to obtain ‘political security’ for their cronies.”
“One effect of the memo — it’s an example of how extensively we overclassify information,” wrote National Review‘s David French. “I’m highly dubious that any information disclosed threatens national security in any way, shape, or form. I’d be willing to bet the Dem response is similarly harmless. Release it.”
There’s also the jarring question posed by Republican Congressman Thomas Massie, one I also posed in yesterdays show:
“Who made the decision to withhold evidence of FISA abuse until after Congress voted to renew FISA program?”
The very surveillance practices alleged to have been abused in this hotly controversial memo are the same that were waved through by both the House and the Senate, and by the very same people promoting the memo in many cases. Taking this into account, it would seem that this is all a show, otherwise, how can these congressman extend the FISA Act for 6 years, then turn around and cry foul of the very act they just extended? It reveals the game at play – and the game continues…
Just as we have seen in the past, one “bombshell” is revealed, and before anyone can even stop and think about repercussions or accountability, the masses are ushered and propagandized right into the next incoming “bombshell.” A White House spokesman has already stated that they will not be seeking DOJ charges for Rosenstein. Well that didn’t take long.
As I see it, this is Day One, with no one being held accountable for what we were shown in the memo.
This just reveals the false nature of the entire two-party deception. They all fight for the same team, and help sell and perpetuate that team’s wars..
This is an old and tired story, that keeps getting reused and retold. It’s played out. Embarrassingly enough, their accusations always tie back to, and originate from, the White Helmets. A verifiable terrorist organization.
The article makes two excellent points among many. First of which was that anytime the US needs to apply pressure to either Russia or Assad, there always seems to be claims of chemical attacks that pop up – interesting timing. Second, that the rebels are losing, the terrorists are losing, and they will do anything to get the US to come back in and take charge. It should be pretty damn clear that the US is just itching for an excuse to do just that.
We saw the exact same thing with Tillerson last week, and neither of them have evidence, and absurdly enough both of them said as much. Both called out Assad and Russia, with no evidence, and are even threatening military action, with no evidence. If that doesn’t give some insight into their true intentions, I don’t know what does.
A state-sponsored forced sterilization on a massive scale has allegedly taken place in Africa according to opposition leaders and the public who are railing against the government. An industrial pharmaceutical laboratory has since had its license suspended by the Kenya Accreditation Service as a result of the controversy. Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga—who swore himself in as president on Tuesday—claimed that at least 500,000 young girls and women may be infertile, following a tetanus vaccine administered by the government in 2014 and 2015.
As horrifying as this truly is, and blithe as it may sound, this is almost expected. These elite eugenists have been talking about the need for depopulation and sterilization for decades, centuries even. So it should not come as a shock that they actually saw it to fruition. It should disgust you. It should anger you. Even rally you into action, but shock you it should not. I would not be surprised it the very same measures were being taken in other countries, even the US. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if it were already in our drinking water, or being sprayed above us as we speak, but that’s just me. I bear the burden of what I know, what I have seen taking place with my own two eyes, and these types of “for the greater good” thinly veiled evil-villain type actions, are just the tip of the iceberg. This is why it is so important that we do our research and help others see the truth, because we are only strong in numbers.
While President Trump promised to “drain the swamp” when he was on the campaign trail, a new report from a non-profit, nonpartisan research group shows that after one year of the Trump administration, lobbying is at records levels in Washington. In 2017, there were a number of companies that significantly increased the amount they spent on lobbying—many of which were tech companies. The report noted that Facebook spent $11 million, Amazon spent $13 million—about $2 million more than it spent in 2016—and Google spent $18 million on lobbying. President Trump was also critical of the corruption in Washington while he was on the campaign trail. He told CBS’ Face The Nation in June 2016 “he would ‘have no problem’ banning lobbyists and big donors from working in his administration.” yet, it appears that Trump has changed his tune—in the same way that Obama retreated on his promises, Trump is retreating on his.
How many times must the people be fooled by the same recycled ploys? Remember, the reality of the situation will always revel itself within the details, if you allow yourself to see them.
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.
