Clinton lawyer's indictment reveals 'bag of tricks'

The 26-page indictment of former cybersecurity attorney and Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann by special counsel John Durham is as detailed as it is damning on the alleged effort to push a false Russia collusion claim before the 2016 presidential campaign. One line, however, seems to reverberate for those of us who have followed this scandal for years now: "You do realize that we will have to expose every trick we have in our bag."

That warning from an unnamed "university researcher" captures the most fascinating aspect of the indictment in describing a type of Nixonian dirty tricks operation run by — or at least billed to — the Clinton campaign. With Nixon, his personal attorney and the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP) paid for operatives to engage in disruptive and ultimately criminal conduct targeting his opponents. With Clinton, the indictment and prior disclosures suggest that Clinton campaign lawyers at the law firm of Perkins Coie helped organize an effort to spread Russia collusion stories and trigger an investigation.


Joe Biden backs Milley amid uproar over alleged China calls

Milley and Biden
The D.C. swamp continues to protect its own.

While speaking to reporters from the White House, Joe Biden was asked about the explosive new book that alleges that General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held secret meetings behind Donald Trump's back and even secretly told leaders not to take military strike or nuclear orders from Trump days after the Jan. 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol.

Biden made it clear that he's standing by Milley and did not make any mention of him resigning. "Sir, did General Milley do the right thing, sir? Did General Milley do the right thing?" a reporter asked.

Afghans inspect damage of Ahmadi family house after the US drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Aug. 29, 2021.
The US military on Friday admitted that it killed 10 civilians — including seven children and aid worker Zemari Ahmadi in a drone strike near Kabul's airport last month — and not Islamic State bomb plotters, as it originally claimed.

Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., commander of US Central Command, said the civilians "were tragically killed" on Aug. 29, one day before the final chaotic Biden administration evacuation flights from Kabul.

"I am now convinced that as many as 10 civilians, including up to seven children, were tragically killed in that strike," McKenzie said at a press conference.

"We now assess that it is unlikely that the vehicle and those who died were associated with ISIS-K or a direct threat to US forces."


Tucker Carlson: Mark Milley committed treason, and others were implicated

Milley colluded with China, our chief military rival, to undercut the elected president of the United States

There's something about the term "deep state" that sounds paranoid, even nutty. As of just a few years ago, you mostly heard the phrase from relics on the far-left, the kind of people who lecture you about the United Fruit Company and the toppling of Mosaddegh. The term, then and now, suggests that our democracy is fake. Elections and domestic politics are a sideshow. No matter who you vote for, in the end, the same people still run everything. That's a pretty dark understanding of the American system. If you're a normal person who grew up here, it's the last thing you want to believe about your country. It seems crazy.

Comment: Meanwhile Trump believes this is a fabricated story, read more about his take here.


The Pelosi-Milley Insurrection: Gen. Mark Milley is in deep trouble, and Nancy Pelosi is in deeper trouble for setting him up

As much reported, the new book Peril by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa depicts the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, as completely ignoring the Constitutional chain of command in order to go behind then-President Donald Trump's back and, if true, unmistakably commit treason by telling a Chinese general that if America was going to attack, he would personally call the Chinese General ahead of time to tell him.


PPC leader Maxime Bernier is confident his party will win seats and force a debate on freedoms in Canada

Maxine Bernier
Just days before Monday's Canadian federal election, populist PPC leader Maxime Bernier held several events on Thursday in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and in Toronto itself.

Bernier is a well-known critic of coronavirus lockdowns as well as the vaccine passport, and his PPC is the only major party running in the federal election to outright oppose both policies.

Speaking to Breitbart News at an event by Lake Ontario, Mr Bernier said that he was confident that some of the PPC's candidates will win seats in Monday's election, "So now the mainstream political parties, the Conservative and the Liberals, they won't be able to ignore us anymore like the mainstream media."

30,305 people died within 21 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine in England during first 6 months of 2021, ONS data says

Official Office for National Statistics data has inadvertently revealed that 30,305 people have died within twenty-one days of having a Covid-19 vaccine in England during the first 6 months of 2021.

Dozens of freedom of information requests have been made to Public Health England (PHE) over the past few months requesting to know how many people have died within 28 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine, but each and every time PHE have claimed they do "not hold the information requested".
FOI statement
It is extremely strange to find that PHE do not hold the information considering their counterpart in Scotland has been able to publish the data on deaths within 28 days of a Covid-19 vaccination.

Public Health Scotland last published the figures on the 23rd June 2021 in their 'Covid-19 Statistical Report' in which they revealed 5,522 people had died within 28 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine between December 8th 2020 and June 11th 2021 in Scotland.
Public health scotland
PHS were also able to reveal the numbers by brand of vaccine and date of occurrence in a published spreadsheet found here. The spreadsheet shows that 1,877 people died with 28 days of having the Pfizer mRNA jab, 3,643 people died within 28 days of having the AstraZeneca viral vector jab, and 2 people died within 28 days of having the Moderna mRNA jab.

Comment: The silence of the scam is being heard loud and clear - but not soon enough for up to 30k preventable deaths in the UK. Imagine the statistical obfuscation on the global scale!

Number of Americans trapped in Afghanistan exceeds Biden Admin claims, GOP lawmaker says

US Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA)
At least 200 Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan, double the Biden administration's public claim of around 100, according to Rep. Darrell Issa's (R., Calif.) office.

Issa's office has to-date communicated with 68 GOP offices, barely a third of the total caucus, and told the Washington Free Beacon it is aware of at least 201 Americans seeking to return home. Issa's team worked over the past weeks to free more than 35 individuals from Afghanistan, and says that it is in contact with "several more." Issa's office believes there are far more than 200 still waiting to be rescued.

The information collected by the lawmaker's office is leading them to conclude that Secretary of State Antony Blinken and senior Biden administration officials are "lowballing" the total number of Americans trapped in Afghanistan after the botched withdrawal of U.S. forces from the country. Blinken testified before Congress earlier this week that he is aware of around 100 Americans who are in contact with the State Department about returning home — a number the administration has repeated for the past weeks.

Issa told the Free Beacon:
"This is the number nobody in the White House wants you to know. State has been intentionally vague, even though they have more information than anyone. That's why we're making sure the truth is told. The coverup is over."

Comment: Of course they 'know'. Pleading ignorance temporarily suffices for botched control.


Interview: Dr. Anthony Fauci says three shots will be needed for full Covid-19 vaccination

Dr. Anthony Fauci
Top US infectious diseases expert tells Telegraph he 'hopes' pandemic will be over by spring but there's 'no guarantee' after delta variant

Three shots will come to be viewed as the necessary requirement to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, Dr Anthony Fauci has told The Telegraph. The comments by America's top infectious diseases expert represented backing for the UK's decision to start rolling out booster shots to over-50s.

It came as the US Food and Drug Administration's advisory panel, in a shock move on Friday night, rejected a plan to offer Pfizer booster shots to Americans over the age of 16. They later voted in favour of authorising boosters of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine for everyone aged 65 and over.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Dr Fauci said:
"I believe, when all's said and done, it's going to turn out that the proper regimen, at least for an mRNA vaccine [like Pfizer], is the two original doses, the prime followed in three-to-four weeks by a boost, but also followed several months later by a third shot.

"So I think that ultimately, when we look back on this, it's going to be that the proper regimen, to have a complete and full regimen, will be a third shot boost. I'm favourably disposed to boosts based on the waning of immunity, as we're seeing very, very clearly as time goes on, in the data in the US [and] even more dramatic data from our Israeli colleagues.

"[There is] some indication of waning in the UK, which is the reason why the UK has, or will soon be, vaccinating people 50 years of age and older, as well as healthcare providers and those who are immuno-compromised."
Dr Fauci said it was not yet clear if children would need a third shot. He said:
"We don't know that. I think it's too early to make that determination."

Comment: The man has no honesty nor integrity. He is a lie-spinner and a lime-light junkie.

Could Goldman Sachs report be exposing pharma's real end game of drug dependency vs. curing disease?

The business of health
Together, the U.S. government and American families are spending billions on medications, therapy, insurance, education, housing, etc. to address the epidemics of chronic childhood diseases. These include autism, ADHD, diabetes, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, allergies (including deadly peanut allergies), autoimmune conditions, obesity and more. The costs are staggering.

A recent government survey found that 1 in 45 children ages 3 through 17 have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The estimated average lifetime cost to care for a child with autism is $1.4 million if they do not have intellectual disability. An estimated 1 in 5 persons with autism also has intellectual disability. This increases the average lifetime cost of care to $2.3 million.

CHD [Children's Health Defense] is calling for a new paradigm that tries to stop the rise of chronic disease and cure those who are suffering now. Since these epidemics are occurring in children, the long-term consequences of so many sick children could be dire for our nation and economy in the future.

The rise in chronic illness in children is coterminous with the vaccine schedule.

In 1986, there were 11 vaccines and 12.8% of our nation's children had a chronic illness. In 2017, there were 54 vaccines — and 2011 figures report an astonishing 54% of children suffer from chronic illness or developmental disability — many of which have been associated with vaccine injuries. CHD believes the U.S. plan must be to do everything possible now to prevent chronic diseases in children and it should start with investigating our broken vaccine program.
