How is it you ask that the Democrats in Congress are allowed to continue with a farcical lynching of the president, a lynching based on nothing more than lies and fabrications in absence of any crimes, but individuals such as Gen. Michael Flynn and Roger Stone face lengthy prison sentences for the same crime- lying? Why is it ok for a part of the political class, along with their media allies, to push lie after lie with absolutely no consequences. The purpose, nay, the duty of a free press is to keep government honest... but what can we do when this same free press becomes the abusers of truth, amounting to nothing more than the propaganda arm of the political elites? There is no more free press- the saddest and most profound example I can think of is Julian Assange- his crime? Telling the truth.
It should be obvious by now what the plan is for Julian Assange—psychological torture resulting in either a total breakdown or an untimely death, the latter supported by the psychopaths who claim they are our leaders. This psychological torture was noted, with standard corporate media disinterest, by Nils Melzer, an internationally recognized expert on torture treatment.
“Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life,” Melzer, UN special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, said in a statement last week.
Sadly, this is never going to happen. In all likelihood Julian Assange will die in prison for disclosing war crimes of the most powerful nation on earth. How much damage did Assange do? None... things are going along just as if he had never disclosed a thing. He did, however, embarrass the mainstream media by exposing them for the frauds that they are. Wikileaks published pictures of civilians being killed by our military and also the Clinton/Podesta emails, yet civilians continue to be killed and Clinton and Podesta still walk the streets. As I've written many times this "war" against Assange is a war against all of us... a war against the truth. That's the crux of this matter- who will control the narrative.
The national security state and its political class plan to kill Assange, keep Chelsea Manning in prison and find a way to return Snowden to the US for a show trial and life behind bars (or execution). It must, however, first salt the earth where truth is harvested. Thousands of blogs, similar to this one, and websites contradicting and disassembling approved narratives, will be targeted for extinction.
Since the conviction of Roger Stone, a push among the political elites has begun to prosecute Alex Jones. Love him or hate him, Jones has every bit as much right to free speech as the MSM, as well as to broadcast his point of view if he possesses the means- regardless of who agrees with it. Chelsea (Bradley) Manning has already been exonerated by Obama, yet is back in prison for refusing to turn on Assange. This is not only unconstitutional, but illegal- but when you're the Deep State you can make the rules to suit whatever narrative you're pushing.

A shady website that claims “Russia is Manipulating US Opinion Through Online Propaganda” has compiled a blacklist of websites its anonymous authors accuse of pushing fake news and Russian propaganda. The blacklist includes over 200 outlets, from the right-wing Drudge Report and Russian government-funded Russia Today, to Wikileaks and an array of marginal conspiracy and far-right sites. The blacklist also includes some of the flagship publications of the progressive left, including Truthdig, Counterpunch, Truthout, Naked Capitalism, and the Black Agenda Report, a leftist African-American opinion hub that is critical of the liberal black political establishment.
The Deep State operates through proxies such as Fusion GPS, the law firm Perkins-Coie, NGO's such as Media Matters, a subsidiary of the Soros-owned Open Society. Working in conjunction with their Deep State allies in government and the MSM they work together to control the narrative through the news cycle. Anyone that disagrees must necessarily be silenced. Things worked pretty well for them until the advent of the internet, a forum where at least for now, all voices can be heard. However, that too is changing- the tech giants in Silicon Valley are in cahoots with the Deep State... one example being Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon along with the Washington Compost newspaper.
The Washington Post, owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos, rolled out the red carpet for the shadowy group, PropOrNot, and its baseless fact-devoid accusations of alternative media treason and complicity with Russia. Bezos is working closely with the CIA on a $600 million internet-cloud deal to get the NSA, DoD, the National Reconnaissance Office, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and other government snoop-and-subvert operations interconnected.
The Alliance for Securing Democracy’s Hamilton 68 effort to destroy alternative media also has roots in the 2016 election loss of Hillary Clinton. Hamilton 68 is a project supported by the US State Department, the German Marshall Fund, and NATO. Neocon William Kristol and DNC operative John Podesta sit on its advisory board. The organization leans heavily on the Russian collusion fairy tale, thus lending to the conclusion alternative media is a Trojan horse that will help the “New Hitler” Putin destroy democracy.
Assange is meant to be an example of what happens to those who oppose or question the "official narrative." He cannot be allowed to live and he most certainly cannot be allowed either the opportunity or the means to exonerate himself- or cause further damage to the official narrative. He and Chelsea Manning will be the first but certainly not the last to feel the sting of the Deep State's wrath.
First, high visibility “fake news” websites will feel the heat. This is already well underway with the persecution of Alex Jones for the crime of questioning Sandy Hook and promoting the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. Lawsuits aimed at Jones are intended to drive his operation into bankruptcy and hold him criminally responsible for questioning official narratives.
Like I wrote above, the plan to prosecute Jones is already in the making. Then one by one, starting with the most prominent, outlets that question the official narrative will be deplatformed one way or another.
Second, the concerted effort to sanitize social media of heretical political expression is moving along at a fairly robust clip. Numerous activists and alternative websites and individuals—including the above mentioned McAdams—have been scrubbed since Hillary Clinton declared war on freedom of political expression, which she fallaciously and absurdly chalked up to malfeasance by Russia and the misbehavior of Deplorables.
As I've said many times before, Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee in 2020 and it will be Russia, Russia, Russia nonstop in the mainstream media.
Third, there will be “meddling by Russia” in the 2020 election regardless of the winner of the presidential teleprompter reader sweepstakes. This will be considered a national emergency and the floodgates will fly open to suffuse the population with scary stories of democracy lost to the autocrat Putin. Radical measures to stem the tide of subversion will be put forward and turned into law by the political class.
Then any semblance of the free speech guaranteed by the 1st Amendment will be ancient history. The weaponized FBI will come after every dissenting voice. The MSM will air a barrage of lies the likes of which the world has never seen, dwarfing anything concocted by Hitler and his Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels. This is for all the marbles folks and the world is the prize. If the globalists are successful in unseating Trump either by impeachment or in the 2020 election, it's game over. Remember: " Earlier this year the FBI designated alternative media commentary as domestic terrorism." This is a war on truth and as in any war there will be casualties. Likely Julian Assange will be the first... with the MSM framing it as being due to "natural causes."
People better get out and vote in 2020 and vote like their lives depend on it... because they do. Trump may not be perfect, but he's all we've got. The FBI will be the key...
The FBI’s not talking about flat-earthers and UFOologists. It is targeting alternative media. The historical record—ignored by the propaganda media—of the FBI’s COINTELPRO operation to destroy political movements in the 1960s and 70s should be revisited. It is paradigmatic of the state and its subversion of opposition. For the FBI, terror is truth unshackled.
The corrupt FBI is the enforcement arm of the Empire of Lies and the internet will be the battleground. When agencies of the government find constitutionally guaranteed rights threatening, then there's something seriously wrong with the government. That's why the Framers wrote the 2nd Amendment so specifically. The Declaration of Independence states: That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–
It's up to us... all of us to see that the dreams of our Founders not go quietly into the night, succumbing to the Empire of Lies. Joe Biden once quipped that Americans don't care about their constitutional rights, and he was right. Nobody pays attention- nobody pays attention until they're gone and by then it's too late. It's time to wake up folks- if the government tells you you don't need guns, you need two. There are things in this life worth dying for and the truth is one of them... if you don't believe me, just ask Julian Assange.
