Afghanistan Constitution CURRENT EVENTS Donald Trump Intelwars Somalia war powers

Trump’s Quiet Little War in Somalia

Through the first seven months in 2020, the U.S. military under Pres. Donald Trump conducted 43 airstrikes in Somalia. That compares to 42 U.S. airstrikes in that country from 2007 to 2017. In other words, in just seven months, the Trump administration bombed Somalia more than Pres. G.W. Bush and Pres. Barack Obama combined.

The bombing numbers come from U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and were reported by Time Magazine.

Even as Trump has made headlines about bringing troops home from Afghanistan, he has directed significant escalation in military intervention in Somalia. In 2017, President Trump loosened the rules of engagement for the drone war in that country, and since then the U.S. military has executed a record number of bombing missions. The bombing campaign through the first seven months of the year was a continuation of last year’s significant spike. In 2019, the U.S. military conducted 63 airstrikes in Somalia, the most in any single year.

There are also roughly 650 to 800 U.S. troops on the ground in Somalia.

Trump has reportedly asked the Pentagon to draw up plans for a troop withdrawal from the country. But as Dave DeCamp pointed out in an op-ed published by, Trump was responsible for sending most of those 650 to 800 troops into the region to begin with.

“If the president successfully withdraws some troops from the country, it would undoubtedly be a good thing, but would it wind down the conflict? U.S. troops are not doing the fighting and dying in Somalia. It’s a war being waged by drones.”

The president has also tweeted about ending the war in Afghanistan in an apparent campaign move to solidify support from anti-interventionist libertarians and paleo-conservatives.

But it’s hard to take Trump’s sudden anti-war rhetoric seriously when he intentionally escalated the war in Somalia along with bombing campaigns in Afghanistan.

As far as ending the war in Afghanistan, Trump oversaw a record number of bombs dropped in in that country just last year. According to U.S. Air Force Central Command data, coalition aircraft (excluding the Afghan Air Force) dropped 7,423 weapons in 2019, slightly higher than the 7,362 dropped in 2018. Keeping up the pace, U.S. warplanes dropped 415 bombs in January and 360 bombs in February, according to CENTCOM. (The last data posted.) That was just under 2019’s record pace.

And despite the lack of American casualties, the U.S. war in Somalia continues to exact a human toll. According to an investigation by Amnesty International, 21 civilians were killed in just nine airstrikes and 11 others were injured. According to Airwars and reported by Time, evidence suggests that as many as 15 Somali civilians have been killed by U.S. strikes in 2020 alone.

Despite his reputation as a slightly less military interventionist president and some progress toward deescalating some of America’s foreign military adventurism, Donald Trump continues to run unconstitutional and illegal wars.

There is absolutely no constitutional authority for President Trump to bomb Somalia. Congress has not declared war on that country, and the president’s role as commander-in-chief does not authorize him to initiate offensive military action.

Constitutionally, Congress must “declare war” before the president can engage in offensive military action. As George Washington wrote in a letter to William Moultrie, “The Constitution vests the power of declaring war with Congress, therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they have deliberated upon the subject, and authorized such a measure.”

Instead of a declaration of war, Trump, along with Bush and Obama before him, relies on the authorization to use military force (AUMF) passed by Congress in the wake of 9/11 to justify military action across the globe, but this stretches the president’s constitutional authority far beyond the breaking point.

In practice, these resolutions authorize the president to decide if and when he wants to take military action. The AUMF passed after 9/11 to authorize the invasion of Afghanistan remains in effect today. Bush, Obama and Trump have used it to justify their independent decisions to take military action across the globe, including Somalia.

But congressional AUMFs simply don’t pass constitutional muster.

No constitutional provision authorizes Congress to transfer its delegated powers to another party, including the president. In fact, doing so violates basic legal rules of construction. In contract law, when a principal (the people) delegates power to an agent (the federal government), the agent cannot transfer its delegated power to another party without specific direction within the contract. No such authorization exists in the Constitution. So, Congress can’t legally give the president a blank slate to make decisions about war at his own discretion. Congress must make that call and make it specifically before the initiation of military action.

Congress has never authorized military action in Somalia.

Some might argue that dropping some bombs in a faraway desert isn’t really a big deal. But America’s unconstitutional wars exact a significant cost. And the price we pay isn’t just in dollars.

James Madison warned about the dangers of endless wars, calling them a threat to our liberty. We’re seeing his fears play out before our very eyes.

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” [Emphasis added]

We would be wise to heed Madison’s warning.

Campaign 2020 Donald Trump Election 2020 immigration Intelwars Mayra joli Nodding lady Town Hall

Viral ‘nodding lady’ from Trump town hall says her employees are getting hate mail because she supports the president

The woman who went viral for sitting behind President Donald Trump and vigorously nodding in agreement during a nationally televised town hall last week says her employees have been receiving hateful messages since the Oct. 15 event.

Mayra Joli, a Miami immigration lawyer and former independent candidate for Congress, became known on social media as the “nodding lady” after clips of her enthusiastic support for President Trump during an NBC News town hall last Thursday were widely shared.

In an interview with Fox News, Joli, herself an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, described how she and her employees at her law firm have been receiving hateful messages because of her support for Trump.

Posted by Joli Mayra on Tuesday, October 20, 2020

“Nobody can call an employer to fire me,” Joli said. “What they’re doing is calling my employees so they quit.”

“They start sending other [messages] saying, ‘I can’t believe you’re working for that person. I thought you were better,'” she added. “I am a fighter, but [my employees] have a private life. They aren’t used to this commotion.”

Her law firm has also been targeted in online reviews, Fox News reports, with several people leaving one-star reviews without comment.

Joli said the negative attention doesn’t bother her and that she’d support President Trump even if no one supported her.

“Somebody’s going to see that review, then see the career I’ve led helping people, so I don’t need that client,” Joli said.

She said her own experiences as an immigrant inspired her to help others through the naturalization process to become American citizens. Though Trump was elected in 2016 on a platform of cracking down on illegal immigration, Joli says she tells her clients that their problems with immigration aren’t the president’s fault. She also said that since Trump was elected more illegal immigrants have come to her for help legalizing their immigration status.

“They were coming to me, telling me, ‘I want to fix my situation because of Donald Trump.’ I told them, ‘No, you want to fix your situation because of you.’ The fact that Donald Trump is the president means nothing because with or without Donald Trump … nothing will change. It just prolongs your agony. You have to find a way to fix it, and that’s why attorneys are there,” she said.

“With Donald Trump, he showed people they have to carry their own weight; they have to make themselves responsible for their pasts, their presents and their futures,” she added. “The clientele, now, is more proactive.”

Joli said she came to support Trump in 2016 after previously supporting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The constant attacks on Trump made her curious about what he really had to say.

“The more they trashed him, the more I wanted to find out more about him, and I’ve been supporting him since. The rest is history,” Joli said. “Donald Trump taught me that I cannot just be silent, and I have to think for myself.”

FedEx Readies A Plan To Help Distribute COVID-19 Vaccines

FedEx has readied a plan that will assist the government in the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine to consumers. The world’s largest shipping company has over 5,000 facilities, 80,000 vehicles, 670 aircraft, and half a million team members around the globe ready and some new technology in place to “help out.”

Richard Smith, the President of the Americas Region for FedEx Express and Executive VP of Global Support said that the company has been ready since the H1N1 outbreak nearly a decade ago. At that time, FedEx worked closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to distribute the vaccine for the H1N1 outbreak.  After H1N1 was made into such a big deal, the company redoubled efforts to invest more in cold-chain infrastructure and “unique monitoring and intervention capabilities,” Smith explained.

FedEx intends to track diligently where these vaccines end up.

Announced in September, FedEx has begun using SenseAware ID, which uses Bluetooth Low Energy to transmit a location every few seconds. The devices will provide more precise location tracking, which will allow FedEx to intervene should something go awry during the shipment process. It will also give recipients a new level of information about their delivery.

Further, the SenseAware ID will be used with predictive analytics, which will give the shipping giant even more ability to move the potential vaccine quickly. –Fox Business

Already, companies such as Pfizer, are estimating1.3 billion doses could be delivered by 2021, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Pfizer Begins Mass Production of COVID-19 Vaccines Anticipating EUA Approval

This vaccine will be available shortly thanks to Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, a plan to fast track a vaccine to make it available in record time to the public. Many have theorized that this vaccine is already ready and that the elitists and ruling class are waiting until the right time to force it on everyone.

Chief medical authoritarian, Dr. Anthony Fauci says that things would have to get “really, really bad” for him to advocate for a national lockdown. But this is the same guy who told the public not to wear masks, then changed his mind later.  At this point, if we have learned anything from this scamdemic, it’s that politicians and the government cannot be trusted to look out for our best interests.  We are on our own.

Campaign 2020 Donald Trump Exxon Intelwars Lie Quid pro quo

Political opponents accuse Trump of felony after viral tweet falsely claims he admitted to quid pro quo

President Donald Trump was accused of admitting to a “quid pro quo” on Monday after a viral tweet grossly misrepresented remarks that Trump made during a campaign stop.

As it turned out, Trump made no such admission.

What happened?

During a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona, on Monday, Trump illustrated a quid pro quo while explaining why he doesn’t make fundraising calls to CEOs of major companies.

But if you saw a tweet by Vox journalist Aaron Rupar — which millions of Americans saw, in fact — you may think that Trump was admitting to an actual quid pro quo. That’s because Rupar pulled Trump’s words out of context to make it appear that Trump admitted to engaging in a quid pro quo with Exxon CEO Darren Woods.

Cementing his tweet with the hashtag “#QuidProQuo” — making very clear the allegation he was levying against Trump — Rupar quoted Trump as saying:

I call the head of Exxon. I’ll use a company. “How, how are you doing, how’s energy coming? When are doing the exploration? Oh, you need a couple of permits, huh?” But I call the head of Exxon, I say, “You know, I’d love you to send me $25m for the campaign.”

The complete misrepresentation of Trump’s words ignited a firestorm on social media, resulting in the president’s detractors to literally accusing him of a felony.

The conduct described by @realDonaldTrump is a felony and punishable with prison time,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Hawaii) said.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) joined in the pillaging. “So @exxonmobil & friends, care to tell us the end of this story? Did you coordinate the $25 million?” she said.

What’s the truth?

As even Washington Post fact-checker Daniel Dale explained, Trump was not, in fact, admitting to a crime.

“Again, the clip that’s circulating has a misleading caption; Trump’s point was that it compromises a president to make personal fundraising calls to big CEOs, so he won’t,” Dale explained. “Once more: A) Trump *does* do lots of high-dollar fundraising, but B) He was clearly not admitting here to corruption or an actual deal with Exxon. Carry on.”

Even Exxon was forced to respond.

“We are aware of the President’s statement regarding a hypothetical call with our CEO…and just so we’re all clear, it never happened,” the company said.

How did Rupar respond?

Rupar eventually deleted his misleading tweet. He claimed that he thought his tweet clearly represented that Trump was discussing a hypothetical, but said he deleted the tweet because “folks are interpreting in a more literal way.”

But again, Rupar’s tweet contained zero context and literally used the hashtag #QuidProQuo.”

bug out burning down chaos civil unrest contested election deep division democracy is a scam Donald Trump economic collapse election elections are selections Emergency Preparedness experts fire Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden major cities Military National Guard scenario street violence Trump Tower United States Violence Voting we lose Winner

Many Americans Are Now Planning to “Bug Out” Ahead of Election Day as Authorities Brace for Chaos in the Streets

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

Will you be safe where you currently are if the election results cause chaos to erupt in the streets of our major cities?  A lot of Americans are becoming deeply concerned about their personal safety as we approach November 3rd because they can see what is coming.

It is going to take a lot of extra time to count all of the votes because tens of millions of Americans are voting by mail this time around, and both sides have recruited armies of lawyers and are prepared to contest the results of the election to the bitter end.  No matter who ends up being declared the winner when it is all over, there will be millions upon millions of very angry voters out there that are likely to feel as though the election was stolen from them, and that is a recipe for widespread societal unrest.  I truly wish that we could go back and do things differently so that we would not be facing this sort of scenario, but it is too late for that now.  More than 27 million Americans have already voted, and more are voting every day.  Any attempts to fix the process will have to wait for future elections, and without a doubt, it definitely needs to be fixed.

It is still difficult for me to believe that I am actually writing about the possibility of violence after a U.S. presidential election, but this is where we are at as a society.

In fact, there is violence in the streets right now.

This should break all of our hearts because violence is not going to solve anything.

Unfortunately, an increasing number of people are not listening to voices of reason, and we are seeing anger and frustration rise to levels that we have never seen before.

At this point, most Americans are expecting the worst.  To be more specific, one recent survey found that 55 percent of all registered voters expect a rise in violence following the election…

In the YouGov survey, about 55 percent of registered voters said they thought violence would increase in the U.S. following the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Just under 11 percent of respondents said they didn’t expect a rise in violence to occur after the election, while 33 percent of voters were unsure.

Even more alarming, a different survey found that more than 40 percent of Republicans and more than 40 percent of Democrats believe that violence would be at least “a little” justified if their party ends up losing…

In September, 44 percent of Republicans and 41 percent of Democrats said there would be at least “a little” justification for violence if the other party’s nominee wins the election.

I truly wish that those numbers were not real, but they are.

As Election Day draws near, many Americans have decided that “bugging out” is the best thing to do.  For example, one 31-year-old New York resident is going to be staying with her parents on Election day because she believes “the city will be on fire” if Trump wins…

Flatiron resident Andrea, 31, also decided to pack up before Nov. 3. “I went to my parents in New Jersey for about two weeks when the BLM protests got bad and the looting started. So I definitely want to get out of here the week of the election,” said the public-relations specialist, a Republican who asked that her last name not be used. “I’m thinking if Trump wins, it’s going to be a disaster — the city will be on fire. People are going to go nuts.”

And 42-year-old Ooana Trien is planning to spend Election Day out of the city because she is concerned that “protesters will try and burn down Trump Tower”

The Trump supporter, who is mailing in her ballot, plans to open up her doors to others looking to escape. “I told my friends that whoever wanted to get out of the city was welcome here. One friend who lives in Washington Heights is going to vote in the morning [on Nov. 3] and come straight up to the beach,” she said. “My mother thinks that whether [Trump] wins or loses, protesters will try and burn down Trump Tower.”

Law enforcement authorities all over the nation are also deeply concerned about the potential for violence.

For example, in New Jersey officials have warned that we could potentially see “civil unrest resulting in riots, violent acts, and fatalities”

“Election result delays and recounts could result in protests and attempts to occupy election offices,” officials with the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness warned in a threat assessment issued in late September.

“Incidents of civil unrest resulting in riots, violent acts, and fatalities will converge with election uncertainty, producing confrontations between protesters and counter-demonstrators challenging election outcomes,” it noted.

Yes, you read that correctly.

They actually used the word “fatalities”.

In New York, residents were rattled by a leaked NYPD memo that warned of violent protests from October 25th through the early portion of 2021

New Yorkers are on edge after a leaked NYPD memo, obtained by The Post, revealed this week that police are preparing for protests to begin as early as Oct. 25 and grow in intensity through next year. The department decreed officers should “be prepared for deployment,” adding: “This November 3rd will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era. There is also a strong likelihood that the winner of the presidential election may not be decided for several weeks.”

In Arizona, the information security officer for Maricopa County is encouraging people to have law enforcement authorities on speed dial just in case something happens

“Make sure that you’re reaching out to your law enforcement and say, on and around Election Day, what is our plan?” he said. “Do you have an emergency contact list? Do you have your police department, your sheriff, whoever, on speed dial ready to get them to respond to any kind of threat?”

Election Day is now just a little over two weeks away, and emotions are running really high.

Most Democrats fully expect Joe Biden to win, and many of them are still anticipating a landslide.

Of course, most Republicans believe that the national polls are completely wrong again and that President Trump will ultimately emerge victorious.

In the end, one side will be proven wrong and the disappointment that they will feel will be very, very bitter.

We all remember the rioting that we witnessed earlier this year, and many believe that what is ahead could be far, far worse.

In 2020, gun sales have soared to levels that we have never seen before, and many Americans find themselves purchasing guns for the very first time.  One of those first-time buyers is a 44-year-old single mother named Andreyah Garland

Andreyah Garland, a 44-year-old single mother of three daughters, bought a shotgun in May for protection in the quaint middle-class town of Fishkill, New York. She joined a new and fast-growing local gun club to learn how to shoot.

According to Reuters, a “potentially contested election that many fear could spark violence” played a role in her decision to purchase a firearm…

Like legions of other first-time buyers who are contributing to record sales for the U.S. gun industry this year, Garland’s decision to take up arms is driven in part by disturbing news about the coronavirus pandemic, social unrest over police killings of Black people and a potentially contested election that many fear could spark violence.

“With everything going on around us,” she said, “you see a need.”

If you could go back 50 years ago and tell Americans what conditions would be like in 2020, most of them would not believe you.

Our society is literally melting down right in front of our eyes, and I don’t think that anyone is going to be able to stop it from happening.

Of course, this election will come and go, but the social instability that we are witnessing will remain, and at this point everyone should be able to see that America is heading into a very dark future.

Budget Deficit Donald Trump Economy federal funding government spending Intelwars National Debt

Trump 2020 Deficit More Than Doubles Obama’s Previous Record

The fiscal 2020 budget shortfall totaled $3.13 trillion as the Trump administration added another $124.6 billion to the deficit in September, according to the latest Monthly Treasury Statement.

That more than doubles the previous record deficit of $1.4 trillion set during the Obama administration at the height of the Great Recession.

The fiscal year ended on Sept. 30. Revenues were basically flat on the year, falling slightly from $3.46 trillion in FY2019 to $3.42 trillion. But total spending soared, coming in at $6.55 trillion. That compares with $4.45 trillion spent in fiscal 2019.

The national debt surged above $27 trillion on Oct. 1, and it has grown by over $7 trillion since President Trump took office. That equals $217,612 of debt for every American taxpayer.

When Trump moved into the White House in January 2017, the debt stood at $19.95 trillion. It topped $22 trillion in February 2019.  That represented a $2.06 trillion increase in the debt in just over two years. By November 2019, the debt had eclipsed $23 trillion.

The debt-to-GDP ratio currently stands at 137.21 percent. Despite the lack of concern in the mainstream, debt has consequences. Studies have shown that a debt to GDP ratio over 90 percent retards economic growth by about 30 percent. This throws cold water on the Republican mantra “we can grow ourselves out of the debt.”

A big chunk of the excess spending in FY2020 came courtesy of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act. But the Trump administration was already spending money at a near-record clip before the pandemic. The coronavirus spending simply exacerbated an already out of control federal spending problem.

Last year, the Trump administration ran a $984 billion deficit. At the time, it was the fifth-largest deficit in history. This goes to show that the federal government had a major spending problem before the pandemic. In fact, through the first two months of fiscal 2020, the deficit was already 12 percent over 2019’s huge Obama-like number and was on track to eclipse $1 trillion. Prior to 2020, the U.S. government had only run deficits over $1 trillion four times, all during the Great Recession. We were approaching that number prior to the pandemic, despite what Trump kept calling “the greatest economy in the history of America.”

No matter what happens in the 2020 election, the borrowing and spending will almost certainly continue unabated. The Democrats have proposed another $3 trillion stimulus plan. The Republicans have pushed for a slightly lower number. But as market analyst Peter Schiff said in a podcast, the Republicans have conceded the argument when it comes to a principled opposition to stimulus. The debate has devolved to how much to spend and where to spend it. “I knew the Republicans lost the argument the minute they accepted the false doctrine that stimulus is good,” Schiff said.

Basically, were arguing the Democrats’ point that government spending helps the economy, that deficits don’t matter, that printing money doesn’t matter, that we can have all the government we want. We don’t even have to pay for it as long as the Federal Reserve prints the money. So, the minute they accepted the Democrats’ argument, they lost.”

According to a recent CBO report, on the current trajectory, the size of the national debt will be nearly double the size of the U.S. economy by 2050.

It’s easy to simply shrug off the debt. People have been warning about it for years. But it’s not a problem until it is. Debt is neither free nor is it irrelevant.

At some point, somebody has to pay for all this. As the saying goes – there’s no such thing as a free lunch. We are all on the hook for the massive bill. We (and our children and grandchildren) will pay for this down the road – either through higher taxes or higher inflation – most likely both.

Bill stepien Donald Trump Election 2020 Foreign Policy Intelwars presidential debate trump campaign

READ: Trump campaign shreds presidential debate commission for breaking tradition on foreign policy

President Donald Trump’s campaign wants the Commission on Presidential Debates to “recalibrate” the topics for the final presidential debate to include foreign policy, a topic that would allow Trump to pressure Vice President Joe Biden on his son’s foreign business dealings.

In a letter sent Monday, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien wrote “with great concern” to the debate commission to object to the exclusion of foreign policy in the final debate. The current debate topics, announced last Friday, were selected by moderator Kristen Welker, a NBC News White House correspondent. They are: “Fighting COVID-19,” “American Families,” “Race in America,” “Climate Change,” “National Security” and “Leadership.”

“The topics announced by Kristen Welker … are serious and worthy of discussion, but only a few of them even touch on foreign policy,” Stepien wrote. “As is the longstanding custom, and as had been promised by the Commission on Presidential Debates, we had expected that foreign policy would be the central focus of the October 22 debate. We urge you to recalibrate the topics and return to subjects which had already been confirmed.”

“We understand that Joe Biden is desperate to avoid conversations about his own foreign policy record,” the letter continued, going on to tout Trump’s foreign policy accomplishments and criticize Biden’s record.

Stepien, referring to recent allegations made against Biden in reports published by the New York Post, accuses Biden of being a “financial beneficiary of a deal arranged by his son Hunter and a communist Chinese-related energy company.” He also accused the debate commission of protecting Biden from facing questions on his record.

“It is completely irresponsible for the Commission to alter the focus of this final debate just days before the event, solely to insulate Biden from his own history,” Stepien wrote.

He accused the CPD of engaging in other “pro-Biden antics.”

“The Commission’s pro-Biden antics have turned the entire debate season into a fiasco and it is little wonder why the public has lost its faith in objectivity,” he said.

“For the good of campaign integrity, and for the benefit of the American people, we urge you to rethink and reissue a set of topics for the October 22 debate with an emphasis on foreign policy. This is what the campaigns had agreed to and it has been the tradition of past campaigns,” the letter concluded. “We await your immediate reply to these concerns. We further advise you that there is no reason to consult with the Biden campaign before replying because we all know what they think.”

The final presidential debate between Trump and Biden is scheduled to take place on Thursday, Oct. 22, at 9 p.m. ET at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. The debate will follow the format of the first debate, devoting 15 minutes to each topic and providing each candidate with two minutes to respond to prompts from the moderator.

anti-Trump Arson Donald Trump Intelwars Pennsylvania Trump flag Trump supporter

Man, 60, tells cops he burned Trump flag hanging from home during paper route because he was ‘angry’

Police said a 60-year-old man told them he set fire to a flag supporting President Donald Trump — which was hanging from a home on his newspaper route — because he was “angry,” reported.

What are the details?

Harrison Bennett was charged with felony arson after police in Shamokin City, Pennsylvania, said he set the flag ablaze when it was attached to an occupied building, the outlet said.

Bennett is scheduled for a preliminary hearing before District Judge John Gembic on Nov. 10, the outlet added.

Officer Tyler R. Bischof said Bennett used a cigarette lighter to burn a Trump flag attached to a house in the 400 block of South Shamokin St. just after 3 a.m. Aug. 27, the outlet reported, citing a Sept. 4 criminal complaint.

The homeowner had a video of the flag burning incident, and a photograph from the video was posted to the Shamokin Crime Watch Facebook page in an attempt to identify him, Bischof told the outlet.

Police said they got a tip that the man in the video may work for a paper in the city, the News-Item, the outlet noted. Turns out Bennett helped another man deliver newspapers along a route that included the scene of the flag burning, the outlet added, citing the complaint.

“Bennett said that he has anger problems and that it spilled over and so he lit the flag,” Bischof wrote, according to NorthcentralPA.

What did the suspect have to say?

Bennett made the following written statement: “I got up at 2:00 am and went and helped with newspaper. Was angry and burned flag,” the outlet said, citing the complaint.

Besides felony arson, Bennett also was charged with one felony count of risking catastrophe and one count of summary criminal mischief.

actress anti-Trump California Donald Trump Francia raisa Intelwars Left-wing celebrities Trump rally watch

Ranting actress claims Trump supporters ‘f***ing boxed me in’ on freeway, cries that they were ‘pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican’

Actress Francia Raisa claimed Sunday, without evidence, that supporters of President Donald Trump traveling to a rally boxed her in while she was driving on Interstate 405 in southern California, wouldn’t let her go around, and ridiculed her in the process.

Raisa — the 32-year-old star of “Grown-ish” and recent kidney donor to Selena Gomez — delivered her tearful rant while driving her vehicle. (Content warning: Language):

Selena Gomez’s Kidney Donor Francia Raisa Tormented by Trump Caravan

“I was just on the 405, and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally, and they f***ing boxed me in and they’re pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, ‘Ha ha.’ And literally I almost crashed because they wouldn’t let me out,” she said. “I was trying to go around it. … They boxed me in on the f***ing freeway. All I wanted to do was go around. And they were just being so violent. I could have crashed. I could’ve f***ing crashed. It was so dangerous. And I just don’t understand why that’s the country that y’all are supposedly wanting right now. Really? That’s what makes America great? That’s f***ed up. I could have f***ing died right now. That was so f***ing dangerous, pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican. Oh God, that was really f***ing scary.”

‘The line of cars seems to go for miles and miles’

TMZ posted a gushing story about Raisa’s so-far unverified claims, noting Twitter clips and photos of a Trump caravan that appeared to be heading south to Newport Beach in Orange County for a Trump fundraiser:

“To celebrate, it seems like a parade of Trump flag-waving drivers are clogging the lanes and cruising incredibly slow to take their sweet time,” TMZ wrote.

“The line of cars seems to go for miles and miles — the distance from central L.A. to Newport is about 44 miles give or take — and lots of people are posting shots of the traffic jam, either in the thick of it, or passing … so it’s clear Francia dealt with something wild out there,” the outlet added.

Errol Webber, a California Republican running for Congress, posted the following video:

What was the reaction to Raisa’s claims?

As you might imagine, lots of fans and fellow left-wingers lined up behind Raisa and used her unverified claims as a reason to not vote for Trump on Election Day — but not everyone was buying her story:

“So she was driving peacefully down the road and then was attacked and tormented for no reason? That doesn’t even make sense,” one Twitter user said. “Was she flipping people off or yelling or bring an a**hole? All different colors of people today on videos from highway. No one cares that you’re Mexican!”

This user claimed Raisa was doing the tormenting: “OMG!! what a liar!! This girl has no shame. I was in that rally; she passed us with anger flipping everybody like there is no tomorrow! So they did not move out of her way… it was in [a] Latinos for Trump parade!! Why the hell are you playing the Mexican card??”

And Trump-supporting singer Joy Villa — who famously donned a “Make America Great Again” dress at the Grammys in 2017 — delivered the following video response:

COVID-19 Donald Trump Election 2020 Gretchen Whitmer Intelwars Joe Biden lockdown Masks watch

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer: ‘If you’re tired of lockdowns … wearing masks, or you wish you were in church this morning,’ then vote for Joe Biden

Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said that if Americans are weary of coronavirus lockdowns and the fallout from socioeconomic restrictions related to the pandemic, they should vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Election Day instead of President Donald Trump.

“If you’re tired of lockdowns, or you’re tired of wearing masks, or you wish you were in church this morning or watching college football or your kids were in-person instruction, it is time for change in this country, and that’s why we’ve got to elect Joe Biden,” Whitmer told Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” Sunday.

What else did Whitmer say?

Whitmer blasted Trump during the interview, accusing the president of inciting violence and not doing his job.

“The Trump virus response is the worst in the globe — I mean, in the world it’s the worst,” she said. “Eight million people have contracted COVID-19, 220,000 dead. We’ve got people in food pantry lines who never would have imagined that they’d be there. And no light on the horizon because our numbers keep going up. This is a gravely serious moment for all of us.”

What was the reaction?

Some Twitter users who commented on the “Meet the Press” clip said Whitmer’s insistence on Americans voting for Biden if they want lockdowns to end and if they want to go back to church sounded like a thinly veiled ultimatum:

  • “Wait, so if we elect Biden, magically we’ll be able to lift lock downs, stop wearing masks & go back to church? That’s ALL we have to do, elect Biden?” one commenter said. “Something smells like a lie here.”
  • “So is she basically admitting that they are ‘punishing us” unless we vote for Biden? That’s what it sounds like to me,” another commenter said. “I would rather be locked down for the next 4 years than put a criminal who sells out America with our tax dollars into office. No thanks.”
  • “So what’s her point, she’s holding people hostage until Trump [is] out?” another user asked. “Dictator much???”

Anything else?

In part of her interview not shown on the above video, Whitmer said Trump is inciting “domestic terrorism” due to “lock her up” chants at his Michigan rally Saturday night, the Associated Press said, and that his words are “incredibly disturbing.”

“The president is at it again and inspiring and incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism,” Whitmer told “Meet the Press,” according to the AP. “It is wrong. It’s got to end. It is dangerous, not just for me and my family, but for public servants everywhere who are doing their jobs and trying to protect their fellow Americans. People of good will on both sides of the aisle need to step up and call this out and bring the heat down.”

Earlier this month she accused Trump of being “complicit” with “hate groups” — not unlike the group federal authorities arrested for allegedly plotting to kidnap her and overthrow the state government.

Also this month Michigan’s attorney general indicated she would no longer enforce Whitmer’s executive orders on the coronavirus after the state Supreme Court ruled the emergency powers that the governor seized were unconstitutional — a ruling Whitmer was not happy with, to say the least.

Church Donald Trump Intelwars Las Vegas

Leftists blast Trump over viral video showing him give money at church: ‘Cheap bastard’

President Donald Trump was excoriated on social media Sunday after a viral video showed him placing a wad of $20 dollar bills into the collection bucket at a Las Vegas church.

Trump attended the morning service at the International Church of Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. During the service, Pastor Marc Paul Goulet led his congregation to pray over Trump and announced he would fast one day per week for Trump until Election Day.

“This is your third time here. That means you’re a church member,” Goulet said during the service. “I don’t care what anybody says. I love my president.”

What does the video show?

During the part of the service where the church collected the offering, video showed the president retrieve multiple $20 dollar bills from his suit jacket and place the money in an offering bucket.

It wasn’t clear exactly how much money the president gave to the church, an act that is viewed as private and only between God and the giver.

What was the response?

Video and photos of Trump went viral, triggering yet another pummeling of the president.

Some detractors criticized the amount of money Trump gave; others claimed Trump attended the church service simply to curry favor with Christian voters ahead of Election Day.

  • “You could see how it much it pained him to donate money,” one person said.
  • “Wow, he ‘tithes’ as close as I can guess from the video…40ish $…. so that means he has an income of. ????? I am the pastor of a church in rural Missouri. My husband and I, along with my congregation ‘tithe’ far more than he does. This man is not a Christian, he is pandering,” another person said.
  • “The way he carefully counts and recounts the money is like me, when I’m debating whether to tip the barista $1 or not.
    Cheap bastard recognize cheap bastard,” one person
  • This is the first time he has went to church in forever. He is just using this as another photo opp. Also i would love to hear him say the lord’s pray,” another person said.
  • “Funny how trump made it to church with 2 weeks to election when he was unable due to golf for the last 3 3/4 years,” another person commented.
  • “Donated $20. Wrote off $1.6 million on his taxes,” one person mocked.
  • “What are the chances that he even carries cash. The secret service guy most likely had to slip that to him. Name one thing that he would ever do with cash. (Other than launder someone else’s),” another person responded.
  • “He must really be worried about his poll numbers to show up at a church service,” another person said.

However, for as much hate leftists poured onto Trump, he was also widely praised for giving money during the service.

Campaign 2020 Donald Trump Hollywood Intelwars Kirstie alley

Kirstie Alley says she will vote for Trump, leftists respond with tsunami of hate: ‘You are now dead to me’

Actress Kirstie Alley, known for her roles in “Star Trek” and “Cheers,” revealed Saturday that she will vote for President Donald Trump next month. She was hit with a tsunami of hate in response.

Alley has become increasingly outspoken about politics in recent weeks. Last month, she criticized new “inclusion” requirements for Best Picture contenders at the Oscars. And earlier this month, the actress slammed a CNN reporter in a viral tweet, and called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “evil” just a few days later.

What did Alley say now?

She announced that she will vote for Trump — just as she did in 2016 — because she approves of his job performance.

“I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician. I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason,” she said.

Alley added, “He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it.”

Alley’s admission on Saturday was the first time that she revealed that she did, in fact, vote for Trump in 2016.

Alley had initially voiced support for Trump during the Republican primary, but dropped her endorsement when the infamous Hollywood Reporter tape surfaced weeks before the election.

What was the response?

As of Sunday afternoon, Alley’s tweet had received more than 87,000 responses. She was widely criticized, and many detractors invoked her membership in Scientology to mock her.

  • “Shelly Long was way funnier than you,” Hollywood director Judd Apatow said.
  • “Well my vote for Biden canceled yours out. I have done my civic duty of the day,” actress Patricia Arquette said.
  • “So you belong to two cults. Gotcha,” one response said.
  • “Imagine if joining scientology wasn’t even your biggest mistake,” another response said.
  • “She’s part of two cults– Scientology and Cult 45. There’s no hope for her,” another response said.
  • “You are now dead to me,” actress Marina Sirtis said.
  • “We already knew you were a cultist… but it’s definitely weird you’re a member of two cults.
    Isn’t there like a cult honor code or something?” another person
  • “I am hiring my friend because he’s NOT an electrician! I hired him 4 years ago for this reason and he wired up the house quick! And now, 4 years later after it burned down (fake news said it was an electric fire) I am going to hire him again!” one person mocked.
  • “Oooh the highly sought after Scientologist Kirstie Alley vote! Almost as lucrative as the Taliban endorsement,” another person mocked.
  • “So you’re proudly proclaiming your support for the racist, sexist, xenophobic, science-denying, constitution-subverting, corrupt, impeached, tool of hostile foreign governments, who has presided over the death of more than 217,000 dead Americans. Good to know. Psycho,” another person said.
  • “I’m voting for Biden because i have a brain,” Joe Lockhart, who worked in Bill Clinton’s White House, said.

But not everyone was angry. In fact, thousands of people shared their support for Alley’s decision.

“Your bravery is appreciated,” Kimberly Klacik, a Republican U.S. House candidate from Maryland, said.

Campaign 2020 Donald Trump Intelwars Jen o'malley dillon Joe Biden

Biden campaign sounds alarm in internal memo, warns race is ‘far closer’ than polls show

Joe Biden’s campaign warned in an internal memo Saturday that the race between President Donald Trump and Biden is much closer than election polling suggests.

What do the polls show?

According to RealClearPolitics, national polling shows that Biden has a commanding lead over Trump.

Currently, Biden’s average national lead over Trump stands at 9%, while his lead in top battleground states is half that, just 4.5%, according to RCP.

What is the Biden camp saying?

Biden’s lead, which has remained relatively steady throughout the general election season, should not give Democratic voters a false sense of security that Biden has the win in the bag, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a letter to supporters on Saturday, the Washington Post reported.

“We cannot become complacent because the very searing truth is that Donald Trump can still win this race, and every indication we have shows that this thing is going to come down to the wire,” Dillon wrote.

According to the Post, Dillon urged campaign supporters to “campaign like we’re trailing,” reminding them that national polling also showed Clinton with significant leads in the run-up to the 2016 election.

In fact, Dillon said the “race is far closer than some of the punditry we’re seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest.”

“While we see robust leads at the national level, in the states we’re counting on to carry us to victory like Arizona and North Carolina we’re only up by three points.” Dillon explained. “We also know that even the best polling can be wrong, and that variables like turnout mean that in a number of critical states we are functionally tied — and that we need to campaign like we’re trailing.”

Anything else?

The memo echoed comments that Dillon made Friday in which she warned that the national polling numbers are “inflated.”

“Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits,” Dillon said. “Those are inflated national public polling numbers.”

Dillon also made similar comments earlier in the week on social media.

“Early voting is already underway in many states. Millions of voters have already cast their ballots. But there is still a long way to go in this campaign, and we think this race is far closer than folks on this website think,” she said. “Like a lot closer.”

Ben Sasse Donald Trump Intelwars republican party

Trump excoriates GOP Sen. Ben Sasse over call with constituents during which he slammed Trump

President Donald Trump fired back at Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Saturday just days after private comments the Republican lawmaker made about Trump went public.

What did Trump say?

Trump called Sasse a “liability to the Republican Party” and an “embarrassment” to Nebraskans.

“The least effective of our 53 Republican Senators, and a person who truly doesn’t have what it takes to be great, is Little Ben Sasse of Nebraska, a State which I have gladly done so much to help. @SenSasse was as nice as a RINO can be until he recently won the Republican Nomination to run for a second term,” Trump began.

He added, “Then he went back to his rather stupid and obnoxious ways. Must feel he can’t lose to a Dem. Little Ben is a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment to the Great State of Nebraska. Other than that, he’s just a wonderful guy!”

Trump later said:

Senator Little Ben Sasse of the Great State of Nebraska seems to be heading down the same inglorious path as former Senators Liddle’ Bob Corker, whose approval rating in Tennessee went from 55% to 4%, & Jeff “the Flake” Flake, whose approval rating in Arizona went from 56% to practically nothing. Both Senators became totally unelectable, couldn’t come even close to winning their primaries, and decided to drop out of politics and gracefully “RETIRE”. @SenSasse could be next, or perhaps the Republicans should find a new and more viable candidate

However, despite Trump’s claims, Sasse is not in danger of losing re-election.

What is the background?

During a call with constituents this week, Sasse bashed Trump when asked to explain why he often criticizes the president, saying Trump “kisses dictators’ butts,” secretly “mocks evangelicals,” and mistreats women.

“The way he kisses dictators’ butts. I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now. He hasn’t lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong-Kongers,” Sasse said.

“The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor,” he continued. “The ways I criticize President Obama for that kind of spending; I’ve criticized President Trump for as well. He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with white supremacists.”

Sasse also criticized Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“The reality is that he careened from curb to curb. First, he ignored COVID. And then he went into full economic shutdown mode. He was the one who said 10 to 14 days of shutdown would fix this. And that was always wrong. I mean, and so I don’t think the way he’s lead through COVID has been reasonable or responsible, or right,” Sasse said.

How did Sasse respond?

James Wegmann, communications director for Sasse, said in a statement on Saturday, “Ben said the same thing to Nebraskans that he has repeatedly said to the President directly in the Oval Office. Ben is focused on defending the Republican Senate majority, and he’s not going to waste a single minute on tweets.”

anti-Trump Donald Trump Election 2020 Intelwars Left-wing violence Massachusetts mother Physical attack Trump flags

Mother punched through SUV window by unhinged leftist who didn’t like her Trump flags — all while victim’s daughter, 11, watches from back seat

Leftists continue to lose their minds — or believe they can get away with blatant violence — in public places full of surveillance cameras.

What are the details?

Police in Fall River, Massachusetts, said a mother was driving with her 11-year-old daughter in the area of South Main and Hall streets last week when two women in another vehicle apparently didn’t take too kindly to the mom’s flags supporting President Donald Trump that were flying off both sides of her SUV, WHDH-TV reported.

Police provided the station with surveillance video showing the initial part of the confrontation, as the Trump supporter’s vehicle is within the yellow oval on the left side of the screen while an arrow points at the suspects seated in a vehicle on the right side of the screen:

Image source: WHDH-TV video screenshot

The women pulled up to the victim’s vehicle, exchanged words about the flags, and then violently assaulted her — as her daughter looked on from the back seat, Fall River Police Lt. Jay Huard told the station.

“[The mom] was trying to attempt to de-escalate the situation by telling the two females to get away from her car,” Huard added to WHDH. “She put her window down to … communicate in a better fashion, and at that point she was punched through the open window.”

Police shared a surveillance image showing the suspects fleeing the scene in a gray Nissan Altima, the station said.

‘We need respect’

Concerned resident Jessica Spauone told WHDH she’s outraged by the incident: “I hope they find them. That is so rude and disrespectful, and they should pay for what they did.”

She added to the station that “we need respect. People have lost that humanity; we need that again. People need to bond together and learn how to love each other.”

Image source: WHDH-TV video screenshot

Huard told WHDH his department has been responding to an increasing number of crimes related to the presidential election.

“I would just say maintain your composure,” he added to the station. “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and let your voice be at the polls.”

cash piles Donald Trump Economy election experts Federal Reserve Forecasting Headline News Intelwars investors Joe Biden lower rates Precious Metals Rally silver bulls stimulus Wealth


This article was contributed by Lior Gantz with Wealth Research Group.

Are there any SILVER BULLS left out there? It looks like the rally is over, the EXCITEMENT IS DONE, and that no one outside of the SILVER BUG COMMUNITY has any positive sentiment towards the QUASI-INDUSTRIAL/PRECIOUS metal.

The market believes that BIDEN’S GOT THIS, so much more money is exiting silver than entering it!

The market is betting that the massive CASH PILES, which investors have collectively shelved on the sidelines (most investors are SHAKING IN THEIR BOOTS, because of Trump’s ACTION-PACKED term in office) will exit the money-market accounts and find their way into real estate, equities, and commodities.

Investors believe Biden would have a SOOTHING EFFECT on the economy; they’ve got A TON riding on higher interest rates — the market is SUPER-BEARISH on bonds!

No one believes that they can go ANY LOWER and reach even more negativity, in real terms.


Are you SEEING THIS? Have you ever seen something MORE OBVIOUS?

Man, this is going to cause so MUCH PAIN for these speculators; I can’t wait to see STOCKS SOAR, METALS RAGE, and the dollar pull a U-TURN on everyone!

Don’t let your GUARD DOWN now, because that’s what happened to MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of investors in March and April; Wall Street PULLED THE RUG from under them, convincing them to stay in cash, while they were buying stocks with STEEP DISCOUNTS!

We gave you options, though, with our watchlists and we’ve been RIGHT. The chart above shows the world is betting on higher rates — what do you think WE’RE DOING?

With the World Health Organization now openly DEMANDING quarantines and lockdowns stop, with governments putting MORE STRATEGIC and far more sophisticated solutions in their place, the markets expect MORE STIMULUS, as do we.


Here’s what every DOOM AND GLOOM investor feels in his heart of hearts, and he ends up MISSING OUT on the now +14 stocks that we outlined in 2020 ALONE that are up over +35%:

  1. The markets are rigged.
  2. Governments are drowning in debt.
  3. It’s a fake economy, a house of cards that can TOPPLE OVER at any moment.
  4. Stocks are historically-expensive; it’s a super bubble.
  5. “If I buy into this lie, I’ll end up losing a fortune.”

I’ve heard this LAST ONE (No.5) since 2009!

If the forecasters of -80% price drops, the preachers of SHORT TSLA and the instigators of not owning FAANG stocks would reveal their track records, you’d see that the EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES.

I still hear SUPER-POPULAR guests on shows predicting that gold is going to $800 and that we’ll see “1999 levels” in the stock market.

What a disservice these well-meaning frightened commentators do to their audience, who are enthusiastically convinced that the world is COMING TO AN END.

For years, people actually asked me how they get their hands on the actual stock certificates since they thought the brokerage firm was GOING UNDER.

2008 scarred the mentality of millions of people; they can’t trust anything or anyone anymore and that actually has a NEGATIVE PRICE attached to it.

I think silver is going to ALL-TIME HIGHS, due to the cyclical bear market that the dollar has begun. The world isn’t going to end; it is going to GET RICHER — the only question is will JEFF BEZOS grow his wealth to $300bn before you grow yours to 7-figures?

This is your moment; now, more than ever, you have a REAL CHANCE to say:


It’s your turn; put your CAPE ON and be a superman.

anti-Trump Arizona Biden supporters Donald Trump Election 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden Trump Supporters vandalism

Anti-Trump vandals going hog-wild in Arizona neighborhood. But Biden campaign signs? They’re left alone.

One thing that’s glaringly apparent in Kevin Beamon’s neighborhood is the support for President Donald Trump.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

As KPHO-TV noticed upon visiting the Scottsdale, Arizona, enclave, pro-Trump flags, signs, bumper stickers, and banners are in numerous yards.

But on Monday night, several of those pro-Trump displays of support were slashed or stolen, the station said.

Not that there are only Trump supporters in this neck of the woods — a few folks have signs up for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, KPHO noted. However, the pro-Biden signs have been left alone, the station said.

Apparently it’s an anti-Trump operation.

“They basically just defaced and destroyed a lot of political signs, which is obviously illegal,” Beamon told KPHO.

What are the details?

Around midnight, Peter Cohen’s security camera caught two people — who looked an awful lot like Antifa types with helmets and black clothing — who tried jumping and climbing up his flagpole, the station said. Soon enough they were able to scale the pole and tear down his Trump 2020 flag, KPHO said, after which they ran off with it.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

The same thing happened 30 minutes earlier in a different part of the neighborhood, the station aid.

It also appears vandals sliced in half Cohen’s Trump signs in his yard because they couldn’t pull the iron stakes from the ground, KPHO reported.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

Down the street, Randy Marema’s Trump flag was left torn in half and hanging in tatters from the top of his front porch, the station said.

Image source: KPHO-TV video screenshot

“When they come right up to the doorway and go into a hallway and rip a flag down, that made me feel really violated,” Marema added to KPHO.

‘It’s unacceptable’

Marianne Amato has Biden signs — and sympathy for her neighbors.

“It’s unacceptable,” she told the station in regard to the vandalism. “I would feel the same way if somebody took my sign. Everybody has the right to an opinion.”

‘We can disagree agreeably — apparently, they can’t’

As for Cohen, he raised a spare Trump flag on the flagpole before most people even noticed, KPHO said.

“I’m well stocked, of course, just for this kind of case,” Cohen told the station.

Beamon isn’t impressed with the vandals’ lack of civility, noting to KPHO: “We can disagree agreeably — apparently, they can’t.”

Black lives matter mural Donald Trump Intelwars law and order New York City thin blue line Trump flag Trump Supporters watch

Huge Trump flag unfurled over Black Lives Matter mural on NYC street in front of Trump Tower and paraded around city

Supporters of President Donald Trump decided to get together Tuesday in New York City and march around town with what they said is the largest Trump flag ever, the Daily Mail reported.

And because turnabout is fair play, the group unfurled the flag over the infamous Black Lives Matter mural on Fifth Avenue directly in front of Trump Tower, the outlet said.

The controversial mural — generally viewed as a slap in Trump’s face — has been vandalized at least four times since then.

So dozens of Trump supporters dressed in Make America Great Again hats and Trump 2020 T-shirts made sure the flag covered the Black Lives Matter mural for several minutes before beginning a march toward Times Square, during which they recited the Pledge of Allegiance, shouted “Four more years!” and trolled left-wing rioters by parroting their “Whose streets? Our streets!” chant, the outlet noted.

The march of the 75-feet-by-50-feet flag, which says “Trump: Law and Order” and sports a Thin Blue Line design, was organized through a project called “Operation Flag Drop” on Facebook, the Daily Mail said.

‘We love all of you so much!’

Trump’s son Eric tweeted his appreciation to the president’s supporters:

“We love all of you so much! If I was there today (I’m campaigning in Michigan and Minnesota) I would come down and give you all a big hug!” he wrote before adding, “Happening RIGHT NOW in NYC in front of Trump Tower!”

‘No burning, no killing, no fighting, just a peaceful demonstration’

One attendee, Mariano Labsaoy of Puerto Rico, told the Daily Mail he was there to “support our great president Donald J Trump. He has made America the best country on the face of the Earth. Low unemployment, we are safer, we are better, we are stronger. That’s why I’m here to support four more years.”

Labsaoy also told the outlet that “it’s a great feeling knowing that we can use our freedom of expression, to have the freedom to do whatever we want to — all under the law. No burning, no killing, no fighting, just a peaceful demonstration. This is what is called a peaceful demonstration. At the same time, we are not insulting anyone; we are just marching exercising our constitutional right.”

Another attendee, Tina Forte, told the outlet that she and her fellow Trump supporters are “not to be ridiculed for loving our country and loving our president because we are not the party of division, we’re the heart of America. Loud and proud because Trump supporters need to get loud and proud.”

She also told the Daily Mail that “we shouldn’t be silent and called racist because we support a president who loves everyone. He loves everyone, he loves America, and you know what? He’s the leader of the free world. Under [Democratic presidential nominee Joe] Biden and [Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala] Harris, we won’t be free anymore. We will all be communists and socialists, and that is not going to happen, not on my watch.”

The outlet noted that some onlookers cheered and clapped for the Trump supporters and no incidents were reported.

When the Trump supporters reached Times Square, they played Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York,” and a woman holding an “Indonesian American for Trump” sign gave a speech berating those who oppose the president, the Daily Mail said.

“We are immigrants,” she said, according to the outlet. “We came here because we want a successful life.”

The 2020 Election Bamboozle: We Are All Victims of the Deep State’s Con Game

This article was oriinally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.

“We’re run by the Pentagon, we’re run by Madison Avenue, we’re run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don’t revolt we’ll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche… As long as we go out and buy stuff, we’re at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people’s Villages, but we are all prisoners.”— Patrick McGoohan

This is not an election. This is a con game, a scam, a grift, a hustle, a bunko, a swindle, a flimflam, a gaffle, and a bamboozle.

In this carefully choreographed scheme to strip the American citizenry of our power and our rights, “we the people” are nothing more than marks, suckers, stooges, mugs, rubes, or gulls.

We are victims of the Deep State’s confidence game.

Every confidence game has six essential stages: 1) the foundation to lay the groundwork for the illusion; 2) the approach whereby the victim is contacted; 3) the build-up to make the victim feel like they’ve got a vested interest in the outcome; 4) the corroboration (aided by third-party conspirators) to legitimize that the scammers are, in fact, on the up-and-up; 5) the pay-off, in which the victim gets to experience some small early “wins”; and 6) the “hurrah”— a sudden manufactured crisis or change of events that creates a sense of urgency.

In this particular con game, every candidate dangled before us as some form of a political savior—including Donald Trump and Joe Biden—is part of a long-running, elaborate scam intended to persuade us that, despite all appearances to the contrary, we live in a constitutional republic.

In this way, the voters are the dupes, the candidates are the shills, and as usual, it’s the Deep State rigging the outcome.

Terrorist attacks, pandemics, civil unrest: these are all manipulated crises that add to the sense of urgency and help us feel invested in the outcome of the various elections, but it doesn’t change much in the long term.

No matter who wins this election, we’ll all still be prisoners of the Deep State.

We just haven’t learned to recognize our prison walls as such.

It’s like that old British television series The Prisoner, which takes place in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly idyllic retirement community known only as The Village.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned, monitored by militarized drones, and interrogated in The Village, a beautiful resort with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

While luxurious, the Village is a virtual prison disguised as a seaside paradise: its inhabitants have no true freedom, they cannot leave the Village, they are under constant surveillance, all of their movements tracked. Residents of the Village are stripped of their individuality and identified only by numbers.

First broadcast in Great Britain 50-some years ago, The Prisoner dystopian television series —described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka”—confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the loss of freedom, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, groupthink, mass marketing, and the tendency of human beings to meekly accept their lot in life as prisoners in a prison of their own making.

The series’ protagonist, played by Patrick McGoohan is Number Six.

Number Two, the Village administrator, acts as an agent for the unseen and all-powerful Number One, whose identity is not revealed until the final episode.

“I am not a number. I am a free man,” was the mantra chanted on each episode of The Prisoner, which was largely written and directed by Patrick McGoohan, who also played the title role.

In the opening episode (“The Arrival”), Number Six meets Number Two, who explains to him that he is in The Village because information stored “inside” his head has made him too valuable to be allowed to roam free “outside.”

Throughout the series, Number Six is subjected to interrogation tactics, torture, hallucinogenic drugs, identity theft, mind control, dream manipulation, and various forms of social indoctrination and physical coercion in order to “persuade” him to comply, give up, give in and subjugate himself to the will of the powers-that-be.

Number Six refuses to comply.

In every episode, Number Six resists the Village’s indoctrination methods, struggles to maintain his own identity, and attempts to escape his captors. “I will not make any deals with you,” he pointedly remarks to Number Two. “I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own.”

Yet no matter how far Number Six manages to get in his efforts to escape, it’s never far enough.

Watched by surveillance cameras and other devices, Number Six’s attempts to escape are continuously thwarted by ominous white balloon-like spheres known as “rovers.” Still, he refuses to give up. “Unlike me,” he says to his fellow prisoners, “many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages.”

Number Six’s escapes become a surreal exercise in futility, each episode an unfunny, unsettling Groundhog’s Day that builds to the same frustrating denouement: there is no escape.

As journalist Scott Thill concludes for Wired, “Rebellion always comes at a price. During the acclaimed run of The Prisoner, Number Six is tortured, battered, and even body-snatched: In the episode ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling,’ his mind is transplanted to another man’s body. Number Six repeatedly escapes The Village only to be returned to it in the end, trapped like an animal, overcome by a restless energy he cannot expend, and betrayed by nearly everyone around him.”

The series is a chilling lesson about how difficult it is to gain one’s freedom in a society in which prison walls are disguised within the seemingly benevolent trappings of technological and scientific progress, national security and the need to guard against terrorists, pandemics, civil unrest, etc.

As Thill noted, “The Prisoner was an allegory of the individual, aiming to find peace and freedom in a dystopia masquerading as a utopia.”

The Prisoner’s Village is also an apt allegory for the American Police State: it gives the illusion of freedom while functioning all the while like a prison: controlled, watchful, inflexible, punitive, deadly, and inescapable.

The American Police State, much like The Prisoner’s Village, is a metaphorical panopticon, a circular prison in which the inmates are monitored by a single watchman situated in a central tower. Because the inmates cannot see the watchman, they are unable to tell whether or not they are being watched at any given time and must proceed under the assumption that they are always being watched.

Eighteenth-century social theorist Jeremy Bentham envisioned the panopticon prison to be a cheaper and more effective means of “obtaining power of mind over mind, in a quantity hitherto without example.”

Bentham’s panopticon, in which the prisoners are used as a source of cheap, menial labor, has become a model for the modern surveillance state in which the populace is constantly being watched, controlled, and managed by the powers-that-be while funding its existence.

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide: this is the new mantra of the architects of the Deep State and their corporate collaborators (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Instagram, etc.).

Government eyes are watching you.

They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.

Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to amass a profile of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.

When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies.

Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we’re approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between obeying the dictates of the government—i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be—and maintaining our individuality, integrity, and independence.

When people talk about privacy, they mistakenly assume it protects only that which is hidden behind a wall or under one’s clothing. The courts have fostered this misunderstanding with their constantly shifting delineation of what constitutes an “expectation of privacy.” And technology has furthered muddied the waters.

However, privacy is so much more than what you do or say behind locked doors. It is a way of living one’s life firm in the belief that you are the master of your life and barring any immediate danger to another person (which is far different from the carefully crafted threats to national security the government uses to justify its actions), it’s no one’s business what you read, what you say, where you go, whom you spend your time with, and how you spend your money.

Unfortunately, George Orwell’s 1984—where “you had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized”—has now become our reality.

We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed, corralled, and controlled by technologies that answer to the government and corporate rulers.

Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on, and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.

This doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts, and other activities taking place in the cybersphere.

Stingray devices mounted on police cars to warrantlessly track cell phones, Doppler radar devices that can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, license plate readers that can record up to 1800 license plates per minutesidewalk and “public space” cameras coupled with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology that lay the groundwork for police “pre-crime” programspolice body cameras that turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras, the internet of things: all of these technologies (and more) add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, read your emails, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.

As French philosopher, Michel Foucault concluded in his 1975 book Discipline and Punish, “Visibility is a trap.”

This is the electronic concentration camp—the panopticon prison—the Village—in which we are now caged.

It is a prison from which there will be no escape. Certainly not if the government and its corporate allies have anything to say about it.

As Glenn Greenwald notes:

“The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what [government officials] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals. This dynamic – the hallmark of a healthy and free society – has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable.”

None of this will change, no matter who wins this upcoming presidential election.

And that’s the hustle, you see: because despite all of the work being done to help us buy into the fantasy that things will change if we just elect the right candidate, the day after a new president is sworn in, we’ll still find ourselves prisoners of the Village.

This should come as no surprise to those who haven’t been taking the escapist blue pill, who haven’t fallen for the Deep State’s phony rhetoric, who haven’t been lured in by the promise of a political savior: we never stopped being prisoners.

So how do you escape? For starters, resist the urge to conform to a group mind and the tyranny of mob-think as controlled by the Deep State.

Think for yourself. Be an individual. As McGoohan commented in 1968, “At this moment individuals are being drained of their personalities and being brainwashed into slaves… As long as people feel something, that’s the great thing. It’s when they are walking around not thinking and not feeling, that’s tough. When you get a mob like that, you can turn them into the sort of gang that Hitler had.”

You want to be free? Remove the blindfold that blinds you to the Deep State’s con game, stop doping yourself with government propaganda, and break free of the political chokehold that has got you marching in lockstep with tyrants and dictators.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, until you come to terms with the fact that the government is the problem (no matter which party dominates), you’ll never be free.

Female Biden supporter arrested after allegedly assaulting man who crossed street to wave Trump flag in faces of her group

A pair of female supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden apparently didn’t take too kindly to a fan of President Donald Trump invading their rallying spot in Wilmington, North Carolina, over the weekend, WECT-TV reported.

What are the details?

Witnesses said a male Trump supporter decided to head across the street, where Biden supporters were standing near the intersection of Military Cutoff and Eastwood Road, around 4:40 p.m. Saturday, the station reported.

The Trump supporter’s mission appeared to be waving his pro-Trump flag in the faces of the Biden backers, witnesses said, according to WECT.

As you might guess, the gesture didn’t turn out too well for him.

The male Trump supporter said he was assaulted by two female Biden supporters, the station noted, and one of them threw water on him.

So he pointed out the culprits to police and told them he wanted to press charges, WECT said.

But according to Jessica Williams of the Wilmington Police Department, since the alleged incident falls under a misdemeanor and police didn’t witness it, an officer told the Trump supporter he’d obtain the women’s information and give it to him so he could pursue a warrant on his own, the station said.

The Trump supporter gave the officer his information so it could be shared with the female Biden supporters, WECT noted.


However, things didn’t go so smoothly when the cop approached the Biden-backing women, as one of them refused to give the officer her information, the station said.

Police told WECT the officer tried reasoning with the woman and asked her to comply multiple times, but she wouldn’t budge.

With that, the woman was arrested for resisting, delaying, or obstructing an officer and taken before a magistrate, the station said.

Are things heating up in town?

Also in Wilmington, a Trump supporter made headlines after she said her Trump signs and a large flag were taken from her property, WWAY-TV reported.

But Amy Byers told the station that “fear is the absence of faith, and I’m not going to let fear control me.”

“I’m going to make a sign that says, ‘You can steal my sign but you can’t steal my vote.’ And that’s really what my stance is,” she added to WWAY.

Byers added to the station, “I just think we all need to respect each other’s opinions.”
