      During what looks like a massive panic attack, the Russians are literally attempting to gaslight the media in Western nations, including MSM right here in the U.S.

      According to Eric Garland, Putin has come to the realization that his intel op to keep power has backfired badly - uniting NATO and threatening to do severe damage to Russia.

      Here is Putin's desperate ploy to save his bacon:

          Getting Rid Of Trump ‘Easy’: Neither Impeachment Nor 25th Amendment Required; Subpoena His Tax Returns.....

          02/19/2017

          (IMAGE ABOVE: A page from Donald Trump's 1995 Tax Returns https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/10/01/us/...


          Quo usque tandem abutere, Catalina, patentia nostra? (How long, Cataline, will you abuse our patience)—Cicero

          It is very simple to have Trump remove himself from the presidency. It requires neither impeachment nor a finding of incapacity by the cabinet.

          Indeed, it takes only one house of Congress, (perhaps only one committee?).

          Subpoena his taxes.

          I predicted early on that Trump would never, ever, under any condition, reveal his tax returns. His whole psychological edifice is based on his brand. Let’s face it: what kind of moron sues for defamation because someone says his net worth is not X? (During the deposition in that case, Trump claimed his “brand’s value” was “based on how he was feeling that day”).

          His tax returns would reveal the truth. Resigning the presidency “on principle”, as he would spin it, is far less of an existential threat to his psyche than for the world to discover the narcissist’s true net worth.

          If either the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, chaired by Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), or the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, chaired by Rob Johnson (R-WI), were to open an investigation into Trump’s likely abundant conflicts-of-interest, illegal leasehold, and emoluments clause violations, it would be impossible to do so without the tax returns.

          Trump, of course, would fight the subpoenas, but he would have little chance of prevailing in court. Once the final determination were made that he had to produce his tax returns, Trump would resign the office, uttering some psychobabble about his belief in the Constitution (that he shows few signs of having read nor caring that he hasn’t read it) and right to privacy.

          The reason that neither Chaffetz nor Johnson will open investigations is that, once open, Trump’s demise is guaranteed regardless of the particular findings because they would have to subpoena his taxes. He will resign the presidency rather than release his taxes. [He will negotiate a deal that the subpoenas will be quashed upon his leaving office].

          Rubles-to-rum, Vladimir Putin already has Trump’s tax returns. If I perceived the depths of Trump’s extreme psychological vulnerability to their publication long ago, psyops expert Vladimir Putin certainly did long before that. Criminal enterprises can hack the IRS computers, so how hard would it be for Russian software engineers? Trump’s accountants would be an even easier target.

          If Putin has his taxes, he is unlikely to want to trigger Trump’s resignation—he is, after all, his boy—and thus will allow him some leeway to appear tough toward Russia. But, Putin will use the leverage his has to its maximum advantage without tripping Trump into impeachment or resignation.

          So-called President Trump is becoming increasingly at odds with Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC). They could be deciding votes as to whether to subpoena his tax records in conjunction with investigating Russian collusion with Trump. The so-called President has said both that he knows Putin well—to the point where Putin supposedly confided in him years ago his lack of respect for Obama—and that he had never met or spoken to him. His son, Don, Jr., claimed a lot of Russian money in Trump enterprises whereas Daddy just said the opposite.

          Senate committees investigating the Russian connections may very well decide, therefore, that they need to see Trump’s taxes to understand the links. The FBI will have to do so. There is no answer the Trumps can provide that has any more credibility that what they have already said that is self-contradictory.

          Thus, no extraordinary action is necessary to have Trump remove himself from office. No hearings or votes or palace intrigue is required. There are very good reasons to subpoena his tax returns, both on the conflicts case and the Russian connection. No judge would quash it.

          We could be rid of him in a flash. Vlad will shed tears, but the world will be a much safer place.

              This was the first thing I wrote when I decided to try to understand this world again. 1/8/17 The women's march helped me realize I had not gone insane or daft.

              I haven't felt like writing too much, the pains inside are still churning and morphing into the next assemblage of beliefs, truths and lies. Politics like anything else, digs in sometimes and you want to believe you know how you will be governed, how you will live your life, what to expect. We are a precognitive species, we act and react and respond to those upcoming things, out of reassured expectations. I expect to burn myself if I touch a hot burner, yet even that fact is being portrayed as fallible.

              I understand completely the thoughts of both and even all three, or four sides in this debacle of Americanism. One against the "establishment" which makes no sense, since we can change that at any time through voting and doing our civic duties properly. One the would pit the best qualified against the least in history. The others trying to do just a little of both, trying to turn the great ship Liberty around in the dry dock. I get it, but it was never really what is was made out to be, that's what people have missed completely in my opinion.

              This was never an election, it was never a case about qualifications and merit, duty and service. This was just whipped up foam of rage, indifference and yes, pure hatred. Even though I don't use this word myself, I would have to say that the margin of victory in this one was made up of people who just want to beat that n***er back down to his place... They were still incensed about that whole bit, no woman, no one person other than a white guy was going to get in there. They complained about it for eight years, everything and anything he did was just to get back at the white folks. That was the margin of victory, but for most of them, for most of the victors. They just didn't try, they just wanted a Jesus like figure that they could worship, they got that part. What escapes me the most is that they didn't even ask him what he is really going to do? If those people think that the other liberal white guy would have made it, I disagree. A Jew in the white house would be worse than a woman to the kinds of thinking that elected (*).

              This all brings us to what happens now? And what did we really do? Well let's first start off with the whole nose to spite the face bit. Now that that is out of the way, let's talk about the vote, the reasons why some things mattered to some and some, but worse offences were ignored or poo-pooed out of indifference and ignorance. That in itself was a great big wake up call, how this fake news and info was WiFi'ed into the heart of America, how the very vestibules of American dignity was actually replaced almost painlessly with anger, apathy and screens. This last election was a culmination of carefully planted doses of dopamine and adrenaline, mixed in with plenty of testosterone. It was a movie being directed by those who have done this better than anyone else for centuries now, with a master director and a studio at his beck and call. Those who deemed themselves to be intelligent fell for it hook, line and sinker, it was a rallying cry from the dumbest among us that our educations were way below that 14th in the world mark. It is the difference between watchin Ancient Aliens as a collection of information put together crudely and with intellectual dishonesty. Or believing the stories as told because the notion of being outside the "establishment" of things. That whole concept of establishment seems to have been replaced with any system or organization that you don't understand, that you must destroy to bring it down to your sensibilities. America has a huge coping problem and it is just going to get worse, much, much worse.

              Because here we get into that whole what happens now part. While no Edgar Cayce am I, there is plenty of precedent that follows these kinds of historic shifts, these tit for tat's. Like I said, these folks have been doing it better than anyone since before we were a nation, so there is no surprise that they would still be above all in their use of their abilities. For a vast part of the last century and into this one America has been the heart of the world economy. Our military spending alone could support a vast economic market of its own. That is going to change more and more now, and at a faster pace than projected. The world economy, as a whole will shift to Asia and the alliances being made will make it a lot harder to sustain even a portion of what we have now. We grew a very satisfied and fulfilled vision of the American dream and now for the most part, people just want to rest on their laurels. Talk about a glorious past while defeating the very meaning of our history with their gallant fight against the "establishment." That establishment is us in all honesty, all of us and there has been a line drawn that some don't just want any of the other ones here anymore. Both sides have drawn the line, but the ones who wish to actually start this un-civil war have taken the helm.

              Not just the economy, but the country and its foundations have been undermined and bastardized in the most heinous of ways, yet it must be those others who are to blame. There will be no winning of this un-civil war, the belief goes beyond reason, the messiahs do not need fact or intellect for they simply need blame. They are not the ones who will be feeding America and working on jobs, they will be the ones bartering for pennies in Chinese on the crops, while they rot in Port storages. They will be the ones creating their own economy because they cannot afford basic white bread at seven bucks a loaf. The biggest belief above reason is the smallest piece, the minute gesture when a Machiavellian slight of hand in a backroom Bolshevik deal handed an entire people over to their antagonists. How are people who "jus wanna work and feed my famly" supposed to understand their diluted and disturbed actions?

              In the end, when the real meaning of handing over the world economy and security to a Potentate and a Putz is revealed. It will serve us right, for we did too little or too much to share the dangers. The states will begin to rupture, the people unsettled in all their forms and colors and beliefs. This was never an election, it was never about the highest job in the land. It was just the beginning of an unholy and un-Civil War.

              What Did Trump Actually Accomplish In His 1st Yuge Month As President?

                  While many of Trump's supporters are still hooked on his bombastic speeches about how great he is and how much he is getting done, what is it he really has accomplished? Trump will tell you he is the man of the people but what in his first month did he do that actually benefited those people he proclaims to be part of? Who stands to benefit from the few executive orders which he managed to get passed such as:

                  "...withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, undoing Obama’s rejection of the Keystone pipeline and delaying an Obama rule cracking down on unscrupulous investment advisers. He also reinstated the “global gag rule” barring overseas funding to groups that provide abortions, just like George W. Bush did, except that Trump’s rule applied to all global health funding rather than just family planning funds, which could reshape foreign aid."

                  So where in the above few executive orders which stated above did the majority of Americans gain any benefits?

                  Has Trump settled into the position of the presidency and actually started acting like a president? Trump hasn't changed one bit from his campaign days and continues to "delegitimize independent sources of authority that challenge him—journalists, judges, protesters, leakers, Democrats, the very concept of objective facts that he doesn’t get to certify as true" Trump also stands with foreign leaders and continues to glorify and praise himself on his non accomplishments, continues to spew lies all of which is embarrassing to us Americans and to say the least, perplexing to those foreign leaders standing on stage with him listening to his constant praise about himself.


                  This article is a good concise overview of what exactly Trump has done in his first month but most importantly what he hasn't done and when I say hasn't done, I mean done for the majority of us Americans he supposedly was elected to represent. Can anyone see how Lobbyists, Bankers and Billionaires in Trump's Cabinet positions will represent the working/middle class? People and the media need to get past listening to Trump's empty rhetoric and start concentrating on what it is that Trump is actually doing and who benefits most from his actions.

                      Keith Ellison Supporters Warn Of Fallout If He Loses DNC Chair Race

                          Those who support Keith Ellison for DNC Chair warns that if their guy is not elected they won't support the Democratic Party. I suspect Keith Ellison will continue to support the Democratic Party if he doesn't win the chair of the DNC. The "warning" issued by his supporters is exactly why Donald Trump is president today.

                          Bring your ideas and energy to bear and let the chips fall where they may. Most people don't react to ultimatums very well.

                          http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/keith-ellison-dnc_us_58acc9c5e4b03d80af7075b3?section=us_politics

                          Days after the November election, the progressive wing of the Democratic Party was ascendant. There was no greater sign of its rising stature than the momentum Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota was enjoying in his race to chair the Democratic National Committee.

                          Ellison, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during the 2016 presidential primary, was racking up endorsements not only from Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), but establishment figures as well, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers — both of whom backed Hillary Clinton in the primary.

                          But in December, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez jumped into the DNC race. Now, Ellison and Perez are neck-and-neck, with the election days away. The DNC’s 447 voting members will decide the party’s next chair in Atlanta on Saturday.

                          That has some Ellison supporters worried that their chance to reshape the party is in danger of disappearing. In an attempt to head off Perez, some prominent Ellison supporters argue that failing to elect him would squander a major opportunity to energize the progressive grassroots and heal the wounds of the 2016 presidential primary.

                          “Keith Ellison had incredible support from the quote-unquote establishment side of the party, the progressive side of the party, the grassroots and the elected officials. Nobody was clamoring for another entrance, and yet we got one foisted upon us,” said Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, an organization fighting to expand Social Security benefits.

                          “If Tom Perez were to win, the message that would send to the grassroots, to labor unions that endorsed Ellison before Tom Perez joined the race, [is] that their voices, their muscle, their enthusiasm and turnout doesn’t matter,” Lawson added.

                          Ellison backers acknowledge that the liberal protest movement that has taken shape since President Donald Trump’s inauguration ― not the DNC race ― has become the focus of grassroots energy. A loss for Ellison now could limit the party’s ability to tap into that enthusiasm, but it wouldn’t stop the movement.

                          “If Perez wins, we’re not gonna come out with pitchforks and say, ‘No, no, no,’” said Murshed Zaheed, political director of Credo Action, an online progressive heavyweight that has experienced record growth since Trump’s inauguration. “But people are going to roll their eyes and just keeping doing what they do. It’s going to keep the DNC what it is: an irrelevant, old, stale entity that hasn’t been re-serviced since the Howard Dean days.” (Zaheed noted that he spoke to HuffPost in his personal capacity, since Credo isn’t endorsing in the race.)

Bill should get off his soapbox. Common decency finally wins out on this one. Everybody knows that you don't mess with the kids! I am sure his comments made every parent's skin crawl.
