Ron Paul Explains what the FBI/ FISA Memo Really Tells Us about Our Government

Wiki

FFirst, the FBI/ FISA memo demonstrates that there is a ‘deep state’ that does not want mere elections to threaten its existence. Second, the memo shows us that neither Republicans nor Democrats care about surveillance abuse of average Americans. Third, war hawks from both sides of the aisle used ‘Russia-gate’ to build animosity against Russia and bigger defense budgets for the Military-Industrial Complex. Paul advises: Be skeptical of both parties. -GEG

Republicans who had seen the memo claimed that it was far worse than Watergate. They said that mass firings would begin immediately after it became public. They said that the criminality of US government agencies exposed by the memo would shock Americans.

Then it was released and the world did not end. FBI agents have thus far not been fired. Seeing “classified” material did not terrify us, but rather it demonstrated clearly that information is kept from us by claiming it is “classified.”

In the end, both sides got it wrong. Here’s what the memo really shows us:

First, the memo demonstrates that there is a “deep state” that does not want things like elections to threaten its existence. Candidate Trump’s repeated promises to get along with Russia and to re-assess NATO so many years after the end of the Cold War were threatening to a Washington that depends on creating enemies to sustain the fear needed to justify a trillion dollar yearly military budget.

Imagine if candidate Trump had kept his campaign promises when he became President. Without the “Russia threat” and without the “China threat” and without the need to dump billions into NATO, we might actually have reaped a “peace dividend” more than a quarter century after the end of the Cold War. That would have starved the war-promoting military-industrial complex and its network of pro-war “think tanks” that populate the Washington Beltway area.

Second, the memo shows us that neither Republicans nor Democrats really care that much about surveillance abuse when average Americans are the victims. It is clear that the FISA abuse detailed in the memo was well known to Republicans like House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes before the memo was actually released. It was likely also well known by Democrats in the House. But both parties suppressed this evidence of FBI abuse of the FISA process until after the FISA Amendments Act could be re-authorized. They didn’t want Americans to know how corrupt the surveillance system really is and how the US has become far too much like East Germany. That might cause more Americans to call up their Representatives and demand that the FISA mass surveillance amendment be allowed to sunset.

Ironically, Chairman Nunes was the biggest cheerleader for the extension of the FISA Amendments even as he knew how terribly the FISA process had been abused!

Finally, hawks on both sides of the aisle in Congress used “Russia-gate” as an excuse to build animosity toward Russia among average Americans. They knew from the classified information that there was no basis for their claims that the Trump Administration was put into office with Moscow’s assistance, but they played along because it served their real goal of keeping the US on war footing and keeping the gravy train rolling.

But don’t worry: the neocons in both parties will soon find another excuse to keep us terrified and ready to flush away a trillion dollars a year on military spending and continue our arguments and new “Cold War” with Russia.

In the meantime, be skeptical of both parties. With few exceptions they are not protecting liberty but promoting its opposite.

Stanford University Is Creating Human-Sheep Hybrids for Organ Transplant

February 20, 2018 Telegraph 0

Scientists at Stanford University grew embryos containing both sheep and human cells, creating a human-sheep hybrid, paving the way for organs to be grown in animals for transplant in humans. The next step is to implant human stem cells into sheep embryos which have been genetically modified so they cannot grow a pancreas, in the hope that human DNA will fill in the missing code. Critics warn that humans will likely reject the organs because the blood vessels will be sheep-derived, which will trigger the immune system to reject the organ. […]

Ohio: Parents who opposed the transition of their 17-year old daughter from female-to-male gender, using hormones, lost custody of her to the maternal grandparents who are open to her use of hormones.

The presiding judge urged state lawmakers to pass a law for minors to undergo gender transition without their parents’ consent. […]

George Soros Argues for to Censorship of Social Media to Fight Populism

February 20, 2018 ZeroHedge 0

George Soros is demanding that the European Union regulate social media because voters’ minds are being controlled and “manipulated” as populism is gaining favor in Europe and the US.

He is now the subject of an ‘anti-Soros’ bill in his native Hungary, as the country seeks to limit his influence and meddling. […]
