            Meanwhile........Bald Bezos accumulates $9 million an hour.

            Sanders proposes an 8% wealth tax on fortunes over $10 Billion.

            Which would, in the first year, would see $9 Billion flow from Bezos to the government.

            Sounds like a good plan for America.

            Now think of the monetary equity that would be taxed from just, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Buffet, Musk, and Bloomberg combined....

            just those 6 wealthy Americans being taxed that would amount to....$54 Billion in one year........to the government.

            And the best thing is Trump is only worth about $1.2 Billion so he wouldn’t be taxed that much, and your beloved 3 comma-club would pay their dues.

            Bam!

    I saw on Yahoo about a whistleblower on President Obama was found dead on the side of the road 40 miles from Sacramento.
    Sounds like the one Caltrans worker found?
    They said it was a suicide. Why would one get out of their car along a hwy and shoot themselves? That just makes no sense.
    I guess our news sources up here will never even scratch their asses and look into it, but all news sources everywhere else will.
    Sorry I didn't get more information from what I read, but I've been drinking heavily since our political group have been sending death threats to Nevada's Culinary Union for not backing Bernie but I've been told that will change by march, or else.

          He wrote about jihad and Islam. RedState, The Blaze, Daily Mail, Breitbart, and Law Enforement Today - have all commented on it.

          All alt-right sights. They say self inflicted, others tell that it was a chest wound and rarely are those by their own accord.

          All conspiracies aside - what made him a whistle blower?

1. War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

2. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power – pure power.

3. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.

4. . The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.

5. The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.

6. Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.

7. Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

8. BigBrother is watching you

Huxley called it in the 1930’s

”The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation' — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.“

“Human beings, it is more or less tacitly assumed, are nothing but bodies, animals, even machines; the only really real elements of reality are matter and energy in their measurable aspects; values are nothing but illusions that have somehow got themselves mixed up with our experience of the world...

The political consequences of this 'nothing-but' philosophy are clearly apparent in that widespread indifference to the values of human personality and human life which are so characteristic of the present age.

Within the past thirty years, this indifference has expressed itself in a number of dangerous and disquieting ways. We have witnessed, first of all, the wholesale revival of slavery in its worst and most inhumane forms...”

“All this is quite clearly understood by the more philosophically minded men of science. But unfortunately some scientists, many technicians and most consumers of gadgets have lacked the time and the inclination to examine the philosophical foundations and background of the sciences.

Consequently they tend to accept the world picture implicit in the theories of science as a complete and exhaustive account of reality; they tend to regard those aspects of experience which scientists leave out of the account, because they are incompetent to deal with them, as being somehow less real than the aspects which science has arbitrarily chosen to abstract from out of the infinitely rich totality of given facts.

Because of the prestige of science as a source of power, and because of the general neglect of philosophy.”

Who needs Security Intel
Posted on: 2020-02-23 12:38:33   By: Anonymous
 
Experts worry that as more officials are pushed out, their replacements will have an obvious incentive to keep their heads down and not provoke Trump.

“The intelligence community plays an indispensable role in providing the best possible analysis to policymakers on threats to the nation,” said Laura Rosenberger, a former National Security Council and State Department aide in the Obama administration who works on election security issues for the Alliance for Securing Democracy.

“That analysis is essential in ensuring that policymakers can take steps to protect our national security,” Rosenberger said.

“Sending a signal that the intelligence community will be penalized if it presents analysis that the president doesn’t like risks leaving our country dangerously blind to threats against it.”

Republicans Hate America and Freedom
Posted on: 2020-02-23 12:46:41   By: Anonymous
 
The New York Times reported the House Intelligence Committee received a briefing earlier this month warning that Russia is planning to interfere in the 2020 elections in favor of Trump. Both Marc Short, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, and White House national security adviser Robert O'Brien denied Sunday that there is intelligence to support that the Russians are trying to help Trump win reelection as president.

      "Of course, it stands to reason that they want Donald Trump reelected because he has been a gift to Russia,” Murphy said. "He has essentially ceded the Middle East to Russian interests.

      He has accomplished more in the undermining of NATO than Russia has in the last 20 years. And he continues to effectively deny that they have an ongoing political operation here in the United States that, by and large, is intended to support Donald Trump and his allies."

        "What we know is that NATO is weaker today than ever before," Murphy responded. "The fact that Donald Trump has questioned whether or not the United States would even come to the defense of a NATO ally in the future is an invitation to Russia to continue to probe at our borders."
        Murphy also responded to comments made by O'Brien on Sunday that it's "no surprise" Russian wants to help get Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders elected president.

          "Well, our national security adviser should stay out of politics. And that is a political statement," Murphy said.
          The Washington Post reported Friday that Sanders was briefed by U.S. officials on Russia's attempt to help his campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic primaries.

          Sanders condemned Russian interference, telling Russian President Vladimir Putin that if he is elected president, "trust me, you are not going to be interfering in American elections."

          Murphy on Sunday said he was worried about "the politicization of intelligence" by the Trump administration.

            "The new acting head of intelligence has no background in intel. He is a Trump loyalist," Murphy said, referring to Trump's new acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell.

            "I think we all worry about this administration controlling massive amounts of intelligence, massive amounts of classified information, and leaking it out to the press when it advantages them," he said.

Marc Short, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, claimed on "Fox News Sunday" that the White House has not received intelligence that Russia is seeking to help President Trump win re-election, calling it "false information" that has been selectively leaked by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee.
The big picture: Short and national security adviser Robert O'Brien both dismissed reports published in the Washington Post and New York Times last week about a briefing provided by top election security official Shelby Pierson, an aide to outgoing acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire.
Pierson reportedly said several times during the briefing that Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump.
News of the briefing reportedly angered the president, and days later he replaced Maguire with loyalist Richard Grenell, the ambassador to Germany.
Short denied that Maguire was berated and fired by Trump because of the briefing, calling it "bad information."

just those 6 wealthy Americans being taxed that would amount to....$54 Billion in one year........to the government.

And the best thing is Trump is only worth about $1.2 Billion so he wouldn’t be taxed that much, and your beloved 3 comma-club would pay their dues.

Bam!

        Trump is a fool. Bloomberg is a successful American.
        Eastwood is a stupid hollywood tool, like ronnie raygun, and Schwartzenegger. What's your point, moron?

            And compared to Trump’s craziness in Politics he makes Arnold look like a pro. Why so tribal? Oh did you get that Zig Zigler’s actual name was Hilary Hinton? Now that is funny 😆
