Trump Is Back in the Fight After Conquering the China Virus

By: Cliff Kincaid

Like a conquering hero, President Trump left Walter Reed Medical Center (also known as Bethesda Naval Hospital) on October 5 and entered the White House in dramatic fashion. After recovering from what looked like a nasty cold or flu, the leader of the Free World decided he couldn’t stay in a hospital or a basement. The media wanted him dead. But for many Trump supporters, the circumstances surrounding the nature and timing of his infection remain a mystery. They are, however, grateful that Trump is back in the White House, ready to fight for his presidency.

One wonders if the president was anxious to leave the hospital where anti-communist Senator Joe McCarthy checked in with a knee problem and checked out in a body bag. The McCarthy case is one of several mysterious deaths associated with Bethesda.

Or perhaps he was just anxious to get back into the political fight, not only against the Democrats but the Chinese Communists. “Make no mistake,” declared Senator Kelly Loeffler. “China is directly responsible for spreading this deadly virus to our President, First Lady, and countless other people here in America and around the globe.”

One sympathized with the president, in his apparent rush to escape Bethesda, as he was given experimental and potentially dangerous drugs by White House physician Dr. Sean Conley for what looked like cold and flu symptoms.

Conley, who previously served as an emergency doctor for the U.S. Navy, had previously supported Trump’s use of hydroxychloroquine to prevent COVID-19. Then, all of a sudden, after Trump gets the disease, he said he and the president had “concluded the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks.” This was a strange development.

Trump reportedly became symptomatic on Thursday, October 1. On Friday, October 2, he announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the Coronavirus.  The CDC says, “Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. If you have fever, cough, or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19.” That means he could have gotten the virus on Tuesday, September 29, the day of the debate.

The China virus had reportedly affected him with a fever, mild cough, some nasal congestion, and fatigue. These are mostly symptoms of the common cold or flu. So why was he subjected to experimental drugs and procedures? And why was hydroxychloroquine taken off the table?

For the record, the CDC says symptoms of a cold usually peak within 2 to 3 days and can include sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, mucus dripping down your throat (post-nasal drip), watery eyes, and fever (although most people with colds do not have a fever). The flu can include some of these factors plus fatigue.

Based on his own experience with the disease, Trump issued a statement comparing coronavirus to the flu. That was significant. But Big Tech companies Twitter and Facebook immediately censored him.

As if we needed more evidence, it should be clear by now that Big Tech and certain political forces are determined to convince the public that COVID-19 is not a flu-like illness. Taking guidance from the World Health Organization, a Chinese puppet, they want people to be scared. By contrast, Trump wanted to reassure people that they can fight and beat the disease as he did.

At the same time, Dr. Conley does not inspire confidence. For example, on October 3, Conley was asked, “Is there any clarity on how he became infected?” Conley replied, “I’m not going to go into that. As far as his care, it’s irrelevant.” He was then asked when Trump was infected. He replied, “We’re not going to go into that.”

Does he know something he is not sharing? Why didn’t he just say “I don’t know.”

It may be the case that it is difficult at the present time to determine for sure how or when he was infected. On the other hand, it could be a national security matter that is under high-level investigation. In this case, one can understand why the president wants to project an image of strength. In fact, on October 6, Trump reported no symptoms.

The source of the infection is still a mystery. The media are trying to blame Trump personally or those around him. As a result, the White House has issued an “Update on the Health and Safety Precautions taken within the Executive Residence.” But questions persist surrounding the unidentified 11 people who tested positive in connection with preparations for the debate. Were these people in any U.S. Government agencies? Were they outside actors? Foreign agents?

What was also mystifying was why Conley was so evasive about Trump receiving oxygen. Here’s an edited partial transcript of remarks from October 3:

Question: And he has not received any supplemental oxygen?

Dr. Sean Conley: He’s not on oxygen right now. That’s right.

Question: He has not received any at all?

Dr. Sean Conley: He’s not needed any this morning today at all. That’s right. Now he’s…

Question: I’m going to try to pin you down one more time. I know you said there was no oxygen yesterday and today, does that mean he-

Dr. Sean Conley: Yeah, he’s not on oxygen today-

Question: But did he receive any on Thursday?

Dr. Sean Conley: And he’s… What’s today? Saturday?

Question: Today’s Saturday.

Dr. Sean Conley: No, no, Thursday…So Thursday, no oxygen. None at this moment. And yesterday, with the team a while, while we were all here, he was not on oxygen.

Why was he so evasive? Whatever the explanation, it’s not what we should expect from a doctor with supervision over the health and safety of the President of the United States. In this regard, there are matters of concern. In addition to getting a rather common steroid, Trump was given a so-called “investigational cocktail,” REGN-COV2, produced by Regeneron, which describes it as being studied for its “potential” to treat people with COVID-19 and to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection. The company says, “REGN-COV2 is an investigational medicine, and its safety and efficacy have not been fully evaluated by any regulatory authority.”

Trump is also being subjected to a five-day course of the drug VEKLURY, also known as Remdesivir. It was given an emergency use authorization for COVID-19 in the United States. The manufacturer, Gilead, warns, “VEKLURY is an investigational drug that has not been approved by the FDA for any use. It is not yet known if VEKLURY is safe and effective for the treatment of COVID-19.” The company warns of possible “hypersensitivity reactions, including infusion-related and anaphylactic reactions…” Anaphylaxis is defined as a serious, life-threatening allergic reaction. People can go into shock as a result.

It appears the doctors were using experimental drugs on Trump as if he was in desperate physical condition. Yet he left Bethesda in a rush to get back to the White House and appeared to be in good health after quickly recovering from flu-like symptoms.

Whatever the impact of the drugs, he appears to be in good fighting shape, as he works to save his presidency from the Deep State.

Court Rules Iran Owes $1.4B Over Presumed Death of FBI Agent

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Levinson was originally with the Drug Enforcement Agency before moving to the FBI and later assigned to a special operation for the CIA. Levinson’s family received a $2.5 million annuity from the CIA in order to stop a lawsuit revealing details of his work in Iran and to forestall any revelation of details regarding the arrangement between Levinson and the agency. Levinson had retired from the FBI in 1998 and had become self-employed as a private investigator; his specialty was Russian organized crime gangs, and he was even interviewed numerous times for television documentaries to discuss the topic. Both Levinson and the CIA analyst who hired him, Anne Jablonski, specialized in Russian organized crime and not Iranian issues.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A U.S. judge has ordered Iran to pay $1.45 billion to the family of a former FBI agent believed to have been kidnapped by the Islamic Republic while on an unauthorized CIA mission to an Iranian island in 2007.

The judgment this month comes after Robert Levinson’s family and the U.S. government now believe he died in the Iranian government’s custody, something long denied by Tehran, though officials over time have offered contradictory accounts about what happened to him on Kish Island.

Tensions remain high between the U.S. and Iran amid President Donald Trump’s maximalist pressure campaign over Tehran’s nuclear program. And though the U.S. and Iran haven’t had diplomatic relations since the aftermath of the 1979 U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in Tehran, America stills holds billions of dollars in frozen Iranian assets that could be used to pay Levinson’s family.

In a ruling dated Thursday, the U.S. District Court in Washington found Iran owed Levinson’s family $1.35 billion in punitive damages and $107 million in compensatory damages for his kidnapping. The court cited the case of Otto Warmbier, an American college student who died in 2017 shortly after being freed from captivity in North Korea, in deciding to award the massive amount of punitive damages to Levinson’s family.

“Iran’s conduct here is also unique, given that — astonishingly — it plucked a former FBI and DEA special agent from the face of the earth without warning, tortured him, held him captive for as long as 13 years, and to this day refuses to admit its responsibility,” the ruling by Judge Timothy J. Kelly said.

“And his wife and children, and their spouses and children — while keeping Levinson’s memory alive — have had to proceed with their lives without knowing his exact fate. These are surely acts worthy of the gravest condemnation,” the judge added.

Iranian state media and officials in Tehran did not immediately acknowledge the ruling in a case in which Iran offered no defense. Iran’s mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday from The Associated Press.

In a statement, Levinson’s family called the court’s award “the first step in the pursuit of justice.”

“Until now, Iran has faced no consequences for its actions,” the family said. “Judge Kelly’s decision won’t bring Bob home, but we hope that it will serve as a warning against further hostage-taking by Iran.”

Levinson disappeared from Iran’s Kish Island on March 9, 2007. For years, U.S. officials would only say that Levinson, a meticulous FBI investigator credited with busting Russian and Italian mobsters, was working for a private firm on his trip.

In December 2013, the AP revealed Levinson in fact had been on a mission for CIA analysts who had no authority to run spy operations. Levinson’s family had received a $2.5 million annuity from the CIA in order to stop a lawsuit revealing details of his work, while the agency forced out three veteran analysts and disciplined seven others.

Declassified Notes, Brennan Briefed Obama on Hillary’s RussiaGate Plot

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer:

CIA Director, Gina Haspel was the London Chief of Station from 2014 to 2017 under Director John Brennan. It is reported that Haspel is stonewalling the release of key documents related to RussiaGate.

Gina Haspel confirmed as first woman CIA director

This past August, Durham reportedly questioned former CIA Director John Brennan at CIA headquarters for eight hours on Friday, although Nick Shapiro, an adviser for Brennan, says the former spy chief was assured that he is not a target of Durham’s criminal investigation.

As Brennan hearing opens, mounting questions on how Obama ...

But DNI John Ratcliffe has provided documents to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. So, on each side, at the very least Adam Schiff and Chris Murphy should be not only embarrassed, but should publicly apologize, and both not only be removed from their respective committee assignments, but their security clearances should be terminated.

With that read on…

FNC Exclusive:

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified documents that revealed former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s purported “plan” to tie then-candidate, Donald Trump, to Russia as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server” ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Fox News has learned.

Ratcliffe declassified Brennan’s handwritten notes – which were taken after he briefed Obama on the intelligence the CIA received – and a CIA memo, which revealed that officials referred the matter to the FBI for potential investigative action.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence transmitted the declassified documents to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees on Tuesday afternoon.

“Today, at the direction of President Trump, I declassified additional documents relevant to ongoing Congressional oversight and investigative activities,” Ratcliffe said in a statement to Fox News Tuesday.

A source familiar with the documents explained that Brennan’s handwritten notes were taken after briefing Obama on the matter.

“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan notes read. “CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service,” Brennan’s notes read.

The notes state “on 28 of July.”  In the margin, Brennan writes “POTUS,” but that section of the notes is redacted.

“Any evidence of collaboration between Trump campaign + Russia,” the notes read.

The remainder of the notes are redacted, except in the margins, which reads:  “JC,” “Denis,” and “Susan.”

** ENCLOSURE_1__Brennan_Notes__U

The declassification comes after Ratcliffe, last week, shared newly-declassified information with the Senate Judiciary Committee which revealed that in September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton purportedly approving “a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections” in order to distract the public from her email scandal.

That referral was sent to then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

“The following information is provided for the exclusive use of your bureau for background investigative action or lead purposes as appropriate,” the CIA memo to Comey and Strzok stated.

“This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know. To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal,” the memo, which was sent to Comey and Strzok, read. “It may not be used in any legal proceeding—including FISA applications—without prior approval…”

** ENCLOSURE_2__DCIA_Memo_09-07-16__U

“Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date,” the memo continued. “An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

The memo is heavily redacted.

Ratcliffe informed the committee last week that the Obama administration obtained Russian intelligence in July 2016 with allegations against Clinton, but cautioned that the intelligence community “does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the text to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”

According to Ratcliffe’s letter, the intelligence included the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016, of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”

Nick Merrill, Clinton’s spokesperson, called the allegations “baseless b———t.”

But Ratcliffe, in a statement released after the information was made public, pushed back on the idea he was advancing “Russian disinformation.”

“To be clear, this is not Russian disinformation and has not been assessed as such by the Intelligence Community,” Ratcliffe said in a statement to Fox News. “I’ll be briefing Congress on the sensitive sources and methods by which it was obtained in the coming days.”

A source familiar with the documents told Fox News on Tuesday that the allegation was “not disinformation.”

“This is not Russian disinformation. Even Brennan knew, or he wouldn’t be briefing the president of the United States on it,” the source said. “There is a high threshold to orally brief the president of the United States and he clearly felt this met that threshold.”

Another source familiar with the documents told Fox News that “this information has been sought by hundreds of congressional requests for legitimate oversight purposes and was withheld for political spite—and the belief that they’d never get caught.”

The source added that the Brennan notes are significant because it is “their own words, written and memorialized in real-time.”

Meanwhile, last week, during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey was asked whether he received an investigative referral on Clinton from 2016, but he said it didn’t “ring any bells.”

“You don’t remember getting an investigatory lead from the intelligence community? Sept. 7, 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to James Comey and Strzok regarding Clinton’s approval of a plan [about] Trump…as a means of distraction?” Graham asked Comey.

“That doesn’t ring any bells with me,” Comey said.

“That’s a pretty stunning thing that it doesn’t ring a bell,” Graham fired back. “You get this inquiry from the intelligence community to look at the Clinton campaign trying to create a distraction, accusing Trump of being a Russian agent or a Russian stooge.”

Graham questioned “how far-fetched is that,” citing the fact that Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, through law firm Perkins Coie, hired Fusion GPS and ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to author and compile information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier.

The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, through law firm Perkins Coie, hired Fusion GPS and ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to author and compile information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier.

The dossier contains claims about alleged ties between Donald Trump and Russia that served as the basis for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants obtained against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Comey maintained that the referral did not “sound familiar.”

Meanwhile, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., called the information, and potentially forthcoming documents “smoking guns.”

“The documents that are underlying that we now have seen, I have only seen a few of those – they’re smoking guns,” Nunes said on “Sunday Morning Futures” this week. “That information definitely needs to be made available to the American public.”

Nunes added that there is “even more underlying evidence that backs up” the information Ratcliffe released and called the amount of time it took for allies of the president to get the information declassified and made public “mind-boggling.”

“This has been a very difficult task for us to get to the bottom of because you have corrupt officials,” Nunes said.

Attorney General Bill Barr last year appointed U.S. Attorney of Connecticut John Durham to investigate the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller completed his years-long investigation into whether the campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.

It is unclear whether this information will be considered part of Durham’s investigation.

Who Wants President Trump Dead?

By: Cliff Kincaid

Cleveland Clinic, the sponsor of the presidential debate, admits that at least 11 positive coronavirus tests can be traced to members of the media or organizers of the event. This is either gross incompetence or malfeasance for a federally-funded organization supposedly specializing in health and welfare.

These mysterious people were “scheduled to work logistics/set-up in the days prior to the event,” the clinic says. Is it too outlandish to suggest that one or more could have been tasked with spreading the virus in such a way as to threaten the life of President Trump?

If there is a lesson the American people have learned about Trump in the more than three years he has been in office, it is that he has challenged the power of the Deep State. Nobody knows this better than Senator Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, who once questioned why Trump would fight the intelligence agencies, since “they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

At a time when Netflix is running “Wormwood,” a drama about the mysterious death of a military biochemist in the CIA’s MK-Ultra mind-control program, liberals and conservatives have got to agree that the intelligence agencies will stop at nothing to impose their will on those who resist their plans.

To this day, nearly 20 years after the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, the FBI has still not officially figured out who did it, perhaps because the anthrax was stolen from a U.S. lab and used by al Qaeda terrorists. The truth is just to difficult to tell.

The truth is that U.S. intelligence agencies are thoroughly infiltrated by the enemies of the United States, who also happen to be Trump’s enemies.

In the case of Trump’s infection by the China virus, which quite likely emerged from a Medical Deep State-supported Chinese laboratory, the City of Cleveland went into slightly more detail, issuing  a statement about “11 [COVID] cases stemming from pre-debate planning and set-up.” It then added, strangely, that “the majority of cases” involved “out of state residents.”

To add more mystery, the city then said that because these cases “involve people in and out of state, some of whom may be continuing to travel,” it would try to interview and monitor them. They were “interviewed when possible,” which means some could not be located.

The clinic claimed, “It’s important to clarify the 11 people who tested positive never accessed the debate hall. These individuals were either members of the media or were scheduled to work logistics/set-up in the days prior to the event.” But it can just as easily be concluded that these people, whoever they are, had access to surfaces and spaces used by President Trump during the debate.

This is quickly developing into a medical scandal involving the life of the president and the fate of our Republic.

If President Trump is guilty of playing down the severity of the pandemic, as his critics say, in order to keep people as calm as possible about the nature of the virus, the Cleveland Clinic misled the president himself with disastrous consequences for the nation. It had claimed that “guests” at the debate, including the president and First Lady, had a “low risk of exposure” to coronavirus when they have subsequently tested positive.

Despite alternative theories, it seems likely that the president and First lady were infected at that presidential debate on Tuesday, September 29, where those 11 still-unidentified people with the virus were involved in debate preparation. Trump came down with symptoms later in the week and was whisked away to the Bethesda Naval Hospital, a place where some high-profile people such as anti-communist Senator Joe McCarthy met their demise. He went in with a knee problem and died of hepatitis.

Like McCarthy, Trump is a sworn enemy of those in charge of the “national security” establishment.

It appears that Trump was in worse shape than previously believed and that he may have been given a hefty amount of the virus. But by whom? And how?

The FBI has not indicated it is undertaking any kind of investigation into the transmission of this disease. Perhaps the FBI is useless and can’t be trusted anyway. It may be the case that Trump supporters – and Americans in general – have to demand answers as to how the president was poisoned by the China virus.

The media, through their fake news and phony polls, are trying to blame Trump personally for getting sick.  The real issue is that the president has been targeted for personal destruction from the start of his presidency and that getting the China virus may be how the communist regime and its friends and allies hope to get rid of the leader of the Free World.

Meanwhile, Trump supporters are worried about the White House physician giving the president doses of Remdesivir, an unproven and experimental drug that can have very harmful side effects.

One leftist, an advocate of “Green Power” to save the earth, hopes that Trump’s political future is finished and that Senate Democrats  move to “deny Trump’s corrupt appointment to RBG’s pivotal Supreme Court seat.” That is in fact what Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is demanding. But rather than being corrupt, the process is legal and constitutional and the nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is a Christian mother and legal scholar.

This is what Trump’s enemies really fear – the restoration of America as a constitutional republic.

Anti-Trump Pope Francis has just issued “Fratelli Tutti,” a new encyclical on “fraternity and friendship” that attacks the greatest economic system the world has ever known. “The fragility of world-systems in the face of the pandemic has demonstrated that not everything can be resolved by market freedom,” says the leader of the Roman Catholic Church. He calls for building “the alternative social structures we need,” code for socialism.

The Marxist Pontiff ignores the leadership of President Trump, now fighting to survive against the China virus, in assembling private companies to manufacture the equipment and drugs we need to treat and save the victims.

Sinister global forces are thinking Trump is on his death bed and victory is theirs.

The debate itself was held in the Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion, a part of Case Western Reserve University and the Clinic’s joint Health Education Campus.

The Cleveland Clinic, which was serving as “Health Security Advisor to the Commission on Presidential Debates,” said it had imposed a broad range of risk-mitigation strategies “to help protect everyone within the space” of the actual debate, including:

  • Adding distance between seats.
  • Incorporating personal health screening and safety measures.
  • Implementing disinfectant measures.

But with left-wing activists celebrating President Trump’s positive coronavirus test, and hoping for his political and physical death, it would seem logical to examine what vetting process it undertook to make sure debate “organizers” and even “members of the media” were free of the disease.

Our media, exposed over the last three years as propaganda mouthpieces of the intelligence agencies trying to destroy Trump, are not interested in finding out what truly happened. Instead, it is another opportunity for them to bash the president and his supporters.

On the surface, the debate sponsors seem to have impressive credentials.

James Merlino, MD, was identified as the Chief Clinical Transformation Officer at Cleveland Clinic and Chief Health Security Advisor to the Commission on Presidential Debates for the 2020 General Election.

The Cleveland Clinic claims to be “Leading the Way in Innovative Research for COVID-19 Patients” and says it maintains a “research registry of nearly 23, 000 patients who have been tested for COVID-19 at Cleveland Clinic. These patients, the clinic says, have had positive and negative results.

It looks like the clinic may have been partly responsible for producing two high-profile COVID patients – the president and First Lady.

The Cleveland Clinic, which received $130 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2019, insisted that “everyone permitted inside the debate hall tested negative for COVID-19 prior to entry,” and that “Individuals traveling with both candidates, including the candidates themselves, had been tested and tested negative by their respective campaigns.”

After first refusing to comment on whether any proof was offered of negative tests, the clinic said it took the word of the campaigns that this was a fact.

The Cleveland Clinic got $199 million in federal coronavirus bailout money, the New York Times reported earlier this year. The paper added, “Last year it had so much money on hand — its $7 billion in cash helped generate $1.2 billion in investment profits —  that it paid investment advisers $28 million to manage the fortune.”

Yet, with all of this money, it still could not assure the health, safety, and security of the first 2020 presidential debate.

Rather than examine this scandal, Trump antagonists in the media like Chris Wallace of Fox News complain that Trump’s family did not wear masks while seated during the debate in Cleveland. But that was a distortion. Members of the family were shown wearing masks when they entered the venue. Once they were in physically distanced seats, some took them off. That was consistent with health guidelines.

The issue is whether Trump’s enemies could have somehow placed the virus in the vicinity of Trump or his family, exposing them to the deadly disease.

To cite the “experts” in the media, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says, “The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.”

The words “thought to spread,” and “mainly” are educated guesses.

Although some “experts” say that spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another, one review found a coronavirus can survive on a surface from 2 hours to 9 days. The National Institutes of Health says vaguely, “Viruses can live for a time on surfaces outside the human body.”

The president’s life is still in danger and we know that many people, here and abroad, want him dead. Before it’s too late, we need to uncover what may turn out to be the most diabolical plot in American history. All of those involved in preparing the debate and the debate stage have to be identified and interrogated.

Even while praising his doctors at Bethesda, Trump may understand that his sickness is just the latest attempt by his political enemies to destroy him. We will find out soon if he recovers sufficiently to resume his fight back mode.  Many are praying and rooting for him. His enemies are betting that he will retire from the field of battle.

Trump’s Life Still in Major Jeopardy

By: Cliff Kincaid

I

The big “news” on Saturday was that President Trump is getting better since being diagnosed with a China virus infection. But his treatments are questionable and he was taken to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, also known as Bethesda Naval Hospital, which is the subject of J.C. Hawkins’ controversial book, Betrayal at Bethesda.  

It’s a facility hailed by the president and many for first-rate medical care but is also known to be a location where controversial government and political figures can meet their untimely and unexpected ends.

Various reports have attempted to blame the COVID outbreak on Trump aide Hope Hicks, a White House event to announce the Judge Amy Coney Barrett nomination, or Trump not wearing a mask. But Hawkins said he was concerned how Trump, after weeks of an extensive work and travel schedule, had suddenly tested positive and came down with symptoms.

He said he was also surprised by how suddenly Trump was taken away from the White House and noted the case of James Forrestal, the former secretary of defense who supposedly “fell” from a 16th-floor window of the Bethesda Naval Hospital on May 22, 1949. In another mysterious case, anti-communist Senator Joseph McCarthy went into the hospital with a knee injury at five o’clock on a Sunday afternoon and was pronounced dead five days later from acute hepatitis.

In the always controversial case of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, an autopsy was conducted at Bethesda so the government, according to some observers, could make certain claims about the manner of his death and cover up the nature of the plot against the president.

Of special concern to those alarmed about the activities of what has been called the Deep State, McCarthy’s death occurred at a time when the Senator was preparing to investigate the infiltration of the CIA by Soviet and Chinese intelligence operatives. Trump has some of the same enemies.

In Trump’s case, interestingly, the China-made illness comes just about 30 days before the election, as revelations emerge almost every day about the roles played by intelligence agencies such as the FBI and CIA in subverting the Trump presidency.

In one of the latest developments, Trump’s own CIA director, Gina Haspel, is alleged to be blocking the release of important documents about the agency’s role in anti-Trump coup plotting. Haspel had worked for Barack Hussein Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan, a one-time communist sympathizer who actually voted for the Communist Party candidate in a national election.  Brennan supported Trump nominating her to the top agency post.

In terms of medical care for Trump, who has recorded a video praising hospital doctors and staff, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said the president was being given the unproven and experimental drug Remdesivir, which is not approved for COVID or any other condition. Possible side effects can be almost as devastating as the coronavirus.

The physician treating President Trump and first lady Melania Trump, Conley has made some contradictory statements about when the president acquired the disease and was evasive about when Trump started receiving oxygen to help him breathe and avoid some of the lung damage from the China virus.

“My question is what happened in Cleveland, where the debate took place?” Hawkins said. “There are reports that some of the technical crew setting up the debate stage for the broadcast have come down with COVID.  Another report suggests that three members of the press pool have as well.”

Yet, Trump’s opponent, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, claims he tested negative for the virus, despite being in close proximity to Trump.

Hawkins found it significant that all of this is happening during the nomination and confirmation process for Judge Barrett for the Supreme Court. Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer wants to delay the process, citing the coronavirus outbreak. Confirmation of Barrett could swing the Court to a possible 6-3 conservative majority.

Three key Republican Senators have tested positive for the China Virus (Lee, Johnson, Tillis) just this week. He asked, “Is that a coincidence?  Sorry, I simply don’t believe in coincidence.  There’s no such thing.”

He said “My mother always said, ‘Things happen for a reason.’”

He then speculates about sinister forces who may want to see President Trump dead. Such speculation may strike some people as a “conspiracy theory.” But Trump’s first three years in office have featured attacks on him personally and his presidency from U.S. intelligence agencies, as well as some military brass.

Hawkins cited a number of military personnel “who have been very critical and outspoken regarding their Commander-in-Chief.” He called them “traitors” who are in direct violation of Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. That provision says, “Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

But Hawkins goes further, wondering if those opposed to Trump could try to gain access to him or his medical treatment, in order to assassinate him.

“With as little as we actually know about the virus and how it is transmitted,” Hawkins asks, “are there ways in which The Deep State can weaponize and target it against certain individuals?  Consider what the Russians have done with various poisons against their political enemies, even to the extent of carrying out black ops in foreign countries.”

Hawkins added, “Certainly, those Deep Staters who want to influence the election and deny a vote on the Barrett nomination before the election would have motive and possible opportunities to do so.”

In the case of Senator McCarthy’s death, Hawkins isn’t the only writer and researcher who asked how he could go into Bethesda with a knee injury and die of hepatitis. Conservative journalist Medford Evans wrote a book, The Assassination of Joe McCarthy, looking at what happened to the Senator after he entered “the dark tower of Bethesda.” He considered the possibility that some poison could have been placed into a drink or in the air, as he was in his hospital bed, in order to incapacitate and ultimately kill him.

The large number of people with access to Trump has also emerged as a major cause of concern for those worried about his recovery.

Hawkins said, “Those of us who’ve been hospitalized can recall the virtual parade of people coming in and out of our hospital rooms:  nurses, doctors, various technicians with equipment, people bringing food, orderlies cleaning, etc. So who will have access to President Trump? Is the Secret Service able to vet and limit access to a select few on such short notice?  Walter Reed is a huge complex with a multitude of possible access points.”

Hawkins said, “This is the same military hospital where I believe James Forrestal and Joseph McCarthy were murdered.  It’s also where President Kennedy’s autopsy was falsified.”

His controversial book was updated earlier this year with a new subtitle, “The Origins of the Modern Deep State & Fake News,” and includes an appendix, “The Deep State Mysterious Death List.” One of these is the official “suicide” of Clinton White House lawyer Vincent Foster that a prosecutor in the case had said was probably murder.

Hawkins said he is very concerned about the fate of the president.  “Since Donald Trump ran for the presidency, I’ve had a great fear that the Deep State would try to assassinate him,” he said. “In both my books and in columns on my blog, The Forgotten Street, I’ve raised that possibility repeatedly.  In my new book, I note the eerie similarities between President Trump and President Kennedy in terms of their vulnerability to the Deep State.”

The real danger remains a coup, Hawkins believes, “particularly one carried out by treasonous retired and active members of the U.S. military.” He cites a column by Frank De Verona of the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association about planning for such a coup.

The column by De Varona, who has met personally with President Trump, warns that “diabolical people” think Trump will win in November and have decided to prevent his second term by “using any means” necessary.

“Crazy Nancy” Promotes Dope as Treatment for China Virus

By: Cliff Kincaid

The China plague has infected the president of the United States and his wife, the First Lady, and our media focus on masks. Even worse, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is claiming that smoking marijuana is a “therapy” for coronavirus.

In defending a COVID-19 relief bill with money and goodies for the dope industry, she actually said about marijuana, “This is a therapy that has proven successful…”

While not referring directly to Pelosi’s belief in marijuana as a treatment for the disease, CNBC’s Jim Cramer referred to “Crazy Nancy” during an interview with the House Speaker but quickly apologized.

It is definitely crazy to claim that marijuana is a treatment for the China virus. Both damage the lungs. Marijuana also damages the brain.

The media and political establishments have lost sight of the real enemy and the treatments. They have closed churches during this pandemic but have allowed pot shops to stay open and spread their own version of poison.

Let’s remember that, during the debate, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden didn’t hold China responsible for spreading the virus, killing Americans, and destroying the U.S. economy. President Trump did so, saying to Biden, “…if you were here, it wouldn’t be 200 [thousand dead], it would be two million people because you were very late on the draw. You didn’t want me to ban China, which was heavily infected. You didn’t want me to ban Europe.”

China produced this virus and let it spread around the world. The deaths can be blamed on China, not Trump. And the economic recession can be blamed on China as well. Yet, Biden said about Trump, “he caused the recession,” a ridiculous assertion.

Domestically, this country is divided between those who want the freedom to decide for themselves and those who trust the government to decide for them. “Crazy Nancy” Pelosi and most Democrats want a federal mandate that masks be worn by all Americans. President Trump rejects that approach.

At the same time, Pelosi is promoting, under the cover of a COVID-19 federal relief bill, the expansion of the marijuana industry, so more young people can get high, damaging their lungs and brains in the process. Shameful.

Our media focus on masks. Some say they “might” work while others note that masks were not used to contain flu-like illnesses in the past. As such, some see masks as emblematic of the government’s attempt to control our behavior for larger purposes, and that eventually, the government may seek to order a China virus vaccine of dubious value and benefit.

It’s fascinating that the “pro-choice” crowd that screams “my body my choice” on killing the unborn wants to deny freedom of choice in regard to masks and vaccines.

The controversy boils down to what is called the “argument from authority,” an approach which many students understand from their Philosophy 101 course on how to avoid substance. The “argument from authority” relies on somebody in government or someone having a fancy title. The “argument” is that someone who is smart has decided what we should do and how we should conduct ourselves.

Since some of the “experts” say one thing one day and something else the next, people have come to reject the “experts” and start thinking for themselves.

President Trump has clearly gone through various phases of thinking on whether masks work or not. He has expanded his coronavirus task force to include a skeptic, Dr. Scott Atlas.

Those of us who doubt the efficacy of masks do not have to be obnoxious about it. Instead, I think the proper course of conduct is to wear a mask when in the presence of others who have an unusual fear of the virus or when local authorities or businesses require one. It’s being polite and courteous.

But people on both sides of this dispute have lost sight of the real enemy – China, the source of the virus. We still don’t know if COVID-19 is a variation of a flu virus or something else entirely. It seems to be more contagious than the ordinary flu. Whether masks work or not, China’s direct involvement in distributing this deadly disease is the most important issue after trying to save the lives of and treat those who come down with it.

An updated version of Pelosi’s Heroes Act, the federal COVID-19 relief bill, was approved on Thursday in a vote of 214-207. It still promotes the dope industry.

The stoners and potheads are ecstatic. Our media, however, will ignore the antics of “Crazy Nancy” so they can continue to promote masks and demonize those skeptical of wearing them. They will blame Trump and refuse to confront China.

Voting is Protected Speech but so is Not Voting

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: There are going to be countless legal challenges to vote results nationwide, it cannot be avoided. Just prepare for a mess larger than that of the Bush-Gore results which took 36 days.

A civil right is an enforceable right or privilege, which if interfered with by another gives rise to an action for injury.

Discrimination occurs when the civil rights of an individual are denied or interfered with because of the individual’s membership in a particular group or class. Various jurisdictions have enacted statutes to prevent discrimination based on a person’s race, sex, religion, age, previous condition of servitude, physical limitation, national origin, and in some instances sexual orientation.

Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

People often confuse civil rights and civil liberties. Civil rights refer to legal provisions that stem from notions of equality. Civil rights are not in the Bill of Rights; they deal with legal protections. For example, the right to vote is a civil right. A civil liberty, on the other hand, refers to personal freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights. For example, the First Amendment’s right to free speech is a civil liberty.

Read on however and give this a bit of critical thinking.

Free speech protected by the 1st Amendment has thousands of moving parts including voting or not voting. There are many times where free speech is not only challenged but removed as a civil right as noted in the case of a criminal conviction of a felony.

Wearing a t-shirt or a hat with a logo or slogan is free speech just as much as flying a flag at your home is or even not doing so.

Mandatory Voting Will Build Resentment, Not Democracy ...

Additional reading: Mandatory Voting Will Build Resentment, Not Democracy/ Fining non-voters would show that government is all about forcing people to do things just to make politicians happy.

So, when it comes to ballot harvesting, consider that forcing votes by turning in ballots for tabulation is against free speech. This all stems from voter rolls (databases) that are not audited, purged, corrected, or amended. People move away, people die, people change names and people request ballots using phony names and addresses. Mass mailings of the entire database are not representative of quality and current data. Then there is the matter of ballot design that is challenged making it confusing for the voter or the matter of mistakes made in the comparisons of signatures on file to the actually submitted ballot. How about errors made in names and addresses in the mass mailings where it does not at all match yet the ballots are mailed? What about people tailing the Post Office and delivery personnel and grabbing ballots out of mail trays or slots or simply offering a stipend to fill out the ballot for the alleged voter on their behalf?

There is still the matter of voter ID which has yet to be resolved in many states.

But now we are hearing many other incidents of ballot malfunctions including 100,000 in New York.

Valerie Vazquez-Diaz, a spokesperson for the board, told CNN that 99,477 voters in Brooklyn were affected by an issue with the “oath” envelope for their absentee ballot.

The envelopes—which include the voter’s name, address, and voter ID—were sent with the wrong name and address, a problem that was first reported Monday by confused voters, though its scope was unknown.

Here too it is important to note that many candidate vote results come down to a mere few hundred votes where absentee ballots or provisional ballots come into question.

For the matter of not voting…this matter of ballot harvesting is forcing a name in many cases as a vote where otherwise there may not be a vote at all and that too is free speech. One has to ask is this a violation of the civil rights of an individual? Of course, it is….perhaps a person is apathetic, disgusted, or otherwise not engaged at all in any part of government affairs or policy? That is fine too under the 1st Amendment.

The media should really challenge the whole matter of civil rights violations and ballot harvesting.

More from Forbes in part:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio harshly criticized the NYC Board of Elections Tuesday morning: “This is appalling. It is so easy to avoid this mistake and it is very easy to fix this mistake.”

Key Background

This error comes amid continued attacks on mail-in voting from President Trump, who has insisted—without evidence—that the Democrats will use mail-in voting, “a whole big scam,” to steal the 2020 election. News from last week that a “small number” of ballots in Pennsylvania had been discarded further fueled the president’s accusations of widespread “voter fraud.”

Trump Erupts Over Biden’s Phony Catholicism

By: Cliff Kincaid

In a Wall Street Journal story about Joe Biden’s alleged Catholicism, one can see a photograph of Biden greeting Pope Francis, as his controversial son Hunter, who was discharged from the Navy after he failed a drug test, is in the background. The headline highlighted “Biden’s Catholicism” when it should have referred to Biden’s pseudo-Catholicism. Biden is pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage, in contradiction to church teaching.

In the Tuesday night presidential debate, Biden talked about the importance of the Supreme Court, saying, “The point is that the President also is opposed to Roe v. Wade. That’s on the ballot as well and the court…and so that’s also at stake right now.” It was clear from the context that Biden was making a pitch for the votes of those who support abortion on demand, made legal by the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. When President Trump disputed that it was on the ballot and currently before the Court, moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News said, “we’ll come back to Roe v. Wade,” but he never did.

Roe v. Wade has led to more than 60 million abortions in America since 1973. Biden wants to “codify” the ruling so the Court cannot overturn its previous decision. Dennis Howard of the Movement for a Better America has described the death toll from abortion in terms of the equivalent of a nuclear war on U.S. soil.

The Journal reporters, John McCormick, and Ken Thomas failed to mention that the church teaches that abortion is a moral evil. They admitted that, “Until this campaign, he tried to maintain a middle-of-the-road position on abortion rights. Then in June 2019, amid a competitive primary, he said he no longer supported a measure banning federal funding for most abortions, known as the Hyde Amendment.”

A “competitive primary” means that he sold out to the Marxist wing of the Democratic Party, as Biden declared that, “As president, I will codify Roe v. Wade and my Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate a woman’s protected, constitutional right to choose.”

The Journal also mentioned in passing that a Catholic priest in South Carolina, Rev. Robert Morey, refused to give Biden communion over his pro-abortion stance.

“Throughout his career,” the Journal said, “Mr. Biden has said that while his faith informs his beliefs, he has separated it from his duties in public life.” A skeptic might say he does not practice what he preaches, and that he does not take his religion seriously. It is old-fashioned hypocrisy.

The Journal writers did not mention that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a document stating that, “The threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself because it takes place within the sanctuary of the family, and because of the number of lives destroyed.” This document, “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” is described as a Catholic “teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics.”

While “Catholics for Biden” gets media attention, as if they are legitimate, the group Democrats for Life is ignored and had to pay for a full-page September 20 ad in the New York Times rejecting the extremism on the issue of abortion by the Biden campaign and the Democratic Party.

We are seeing a replay of the coverage of the 2016 campaign when Hillary Clinton escaped serious scrutiny over her extreme position that prohibited any restrictions on the abortion procedure. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party were given a free ride by the press for a policy that suppresses the scientific and medical evidence of the humanity of the unborn child.

This year, however, Biden, the “Irish-Catholic,” as he called himself, openly defies church teachings on abortion and pleads for the votes of those who want to continue the carnage.

He actually said during the debate that people like Trump “look down their nose on people like Irish Catholics, like me, who grow up in Scranton. They look down on people who don’t have money. They look down on people who are of a different faith.”

Trump’s wife Melania is a Catholic who has reportedly promoted Catholic teachings on life from within the White House.

Chris Wallace didn’t want to talk about it, but it’s clear that unborn Americans in Joe Biden’s America will continue to be assigned to destruction. It’s no wonder that Trump, the most pro-life president in American history, would erupt in disgust over how the Bidens are treated favorably by the media.

Yup, Hillary Concocted the Russia Scandal, BHO was Briefed on the Plot

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Hat tip to Sean Davis for his assessment, which has been reviewed and declassified by DNI John Ratcliffe. At some point, one of the debates will include this and then we will have fireworks. Frankly, this may not have been exclusively Hillary, you know she had help from say, Sid Blumenthal, John Podesta, or Strobe Talbot. More to come for sure, as there are more hearings in the Senate.

Keep reading…

Hillary Clinton is right about why she lost. But ...

*** Actual letter is found here.

BREAKING: On July 26, 2016, U.S. intel authorities learned that Russian intel knew of Hillary Clinton’s plans to cook up a scandal alleging that Trump was working with Russia. Obama was personally briefed on Russia’s knowledge of Clinton’s plans.

On September 7, 2016, U.S. intel officials sent an investigative referral to James Comey and Peter Strzok about Clinton’s election interference plan–and Russia’s knowledge of it. We now know the Steele dossier was entirely a product of Russian agents and intel officials.

Christopher Steele, the Clinton campaign subcontractor who compiled the dossier, was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch. So was Fusion GPS. And we learned this week that the dossier’s “primary sub-source” was a Russian intel asset who was deemed a national security threat.

Today’s declassification confirms that from the beginning, the FBI knew its anti-Trump investigation was based entirely on Russian disinformation. Brennan and Comey were personally warned. They responded by fabricating evidence and defrauding the courts.

2009, A Refresher Course on Sheriff Joe Biden and the Stimulus Fraud

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

February 23, 2009

President Barack Obama announced Vice President Joe Biden will oversee the Administration’s implementation of the Recovery Act’s provisions and the appointment of Earl Devaney as Chair of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board in a meeting with the Nation’s Governors this morning. The Vice President will meet regularly with key members of the Cabinet, Governors, and Mayors to make sure their efforts are speedy and effective. He will also make regular, public reports to the President on implementation and those will be posted on Recovery.gov. The Chair of the Transparency and Accountability Board Earl Devaney will report to the Vice President.

“Beginning this week, Vice President Biden will meet regularly with key members of my cabinet to make sure our efforts are not just swift, but efficient and effective. He’ll also work closely with our nation’s Governors, and our Mayors, and everyone else involved in this effort, to keep things on track. The fact that I am asking the Vice President to personally lead this effort shows how important it is for our country and our future to get this right, and I thank him for his willingness to take on this critical task,” President Obama told a group of Governors this morning. “I am also proud to announce the appointment of Earl Devaney as Chair of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board. For nearly a decade as Inspector General at the Interior Department, Earl has doggedly pursued waste, fraud, and mismanagement, and Joe and I can’t think of a more tenacious and efficient guardian of the hard-earned tax dollars the American people have entrusted us to wisely invest.”

$800 BILLION

Missing in Action: Stimulus Sheriff Joe Biden

Then in 2011 as reported:

The Congressional Budget Office says the stimulus package will cost $43 billion more than estimated. The stimulus package is full of waste, fraud, and abuse. As Michelle Malkin notes:

Last week, the Treasury Department inspector general found that the tax police have failed to prevent fraud in the stimulus law’s energy tax credit program. Some $6 billion in stimulus energy credits for homeowners have been claimed — but the inspector general’s audit found that 30 percent of credit-claimers had no record of homeownership. The recipients included prisoners and minors. “I am troubled by the IRS’s continued failure to develop appropriate verification methods for distributing Recovery Act credits,” the Treasury Inspector watchdog said.  Moreover, when the IRS wasn’t falling down on its job policing outside fraud, its own workers were committing their own stimulus fraud — by cheating the system and claiming a first-time homebuyer tax credit included in the 2008 and 2009 economic stimulus packages. At least 128 IRS employees claimed the credit, according to a recent Treasury Department audit, yet weren’t first-time buyers or violated other basic eligibility criteria.

Moreover, the stimulus package has also “redistributed wealth to prison inmatesflaky researchers, social justice boondogglesinfrastructure to nowhereforeign companiesdead people and ghost congressional districts — not to mention $20 million in chump change to pay for campaign-style stimulus-hyping road signs across the country emblazoned with the shovel-ready logo.” Only a small fraction of the stimulus package went to infrastructure spending, and maintenance-of-effort provisions elsewhere in the stimulus package required states to maintain or increase welfare spending, resulting in cash-strapped states cutting back their own spending on useful things like transportation. As a result, Investor’s Business Daily noted, economists “found that despite the influx of all that federal money, highway construction jobs actually plunged by nearly 70,000 between 2008 and 2010.” The $800 billion stimulus package was purged of most investments in roads and bridges, and filled instead with welfare and social spending, out of political correctness, after feminist leaders complained that building and repairing roads and bridges would put unemployed blue-collar men to work, rather than women. “A recent Associated Press story reports: ‘Stimulus Funds Go to Social Programs Over ‘Shovel-ready’ Projects.’ A team of six AP reporters who have been tracking the funds finds that the $300 billion sent to the states is being used mainly for health care, education, unemployment benefits, food stamps, and other social services.” Or, as another AP report put it, “Stimulus Aid Favors Welfare, Not Work, Programs.” Two economics professors recently estimated that the stimulus had actually wiped out 550,000 jobs. The stimulus package also repealed welfare reform, as Slate’s Mickey Kaus and the Heritage Foundation have noted. Obama ran campaign ads claiming to support welfare reform, even though he had actually fought against meaningful welfare reform as an Illinois legislator. This claim was as dishonest as his claim that he would enact a “net spending cut” (which he flouted as soon as he took office) and that America would undergo an “irreversible decline” if the stimulus package wasn’t enacted (when even the CBO admitted that the stimulus will actually shrink the economy over the long run).

Then in 2012:

According to Investor’s Business Daily this week, a new analysis by Ohio State University economics professor Bill Dupor reported that “(m)ore than three-quarters of the jobs created or saved by President Obama’s economic stimulus in the first year were in government.”

Dupor and another colleague had earlier concluded that the Porkulus was a predictable jobs-killer that crowded out non-government jobs with make-work public jobs and programs. Indeed, the massive wealth redistribution scheme “destroyed/forestalled roughly one million private sector jobs” by siphoning tax dollars “to offset state revenue shortfalls and Medicaid increases rather than boost private sector employment.”

Will this Keynesian wreckage come up during Thursday night’s vice presidential debate? It should be a centerpiece of domestic policy discussion. Nowhere is the gulf between Obama/Biden rhetoric and reality on jobs wider.

Remember: Obama’s Ivy League eggheads behind the stimulus promised that “(m)ore than 90 percent of the jobs created are likely to be in the private sector.” These are the same feckless economic advisers who infamously vowed that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent — and that unemployment would drop below 6 percent some time this year.

Sheriff Joe rebuked the “naysayers” who decried the behemoth stimulus program’s waste, fraud, and abuse. “You know what? They were wrong,” he crowed.

But Biden was radio silent about the nearly 4,000 stimulus recipients who received $24 billion in Recovery Act funds — while owing more than $750 million in unpaid corporate, payroll, and other taxes. (Cash for Tax Cheats, anyone?)

He had nothing to say about the $6 billion in stimulus energy credits for homeowners that went to nearly a third of credit-claimers who had no record of homeownership, including minors and prisoners.

And the $530 million dumped into the profligate Detroit public schools for laptops and other computer equipment that have had little if any, measurable academic benefits.

And the whopping $6.7 million cost per job under the $50 billion stimulus-funded green energy loan program — which funded politically connected but now-bankrupt solar firms Solyndra ($535 million), Abound Solar ($400 million), Beacon Power ($43 million), A123 ($250 million) and Ener1 ($119 million). (The con game of just Solyndra for extra credit reading)

And the $1 million in stimulus cash that went to Big Bird and Sesame Street “to promote healthy eating,” which created a theoretical “1.47” jobs. (As Sean Higgins of The Examiner noted, “(T)hat comes out to about $726,000 per job created.”)

And the hundreds of millions in stimulus money steered to General Services Administration’s junkets in Las Vegas and Hawaii, ghost congressional districts, dead people, infrastructure to nowhere, and ubiquitous stimulus propaganda road signs stamped with the shovel-ready logo.

Of course, there’s no example of unfettered stimulus squandering more fitting than the one named after Keystone Fiscal Kop Joe Biden himself. Government-funded Amtrak’s Wilmington, Del., station raked in $20 million in “recovery” money after heavy personal lobbying by the state’s most prominent customer and cheerleader. In return, the station (which came in $6 million over budget, according to The Washington Times) renamed its facility after Biden.

Bloated costs. Crony political narcissism. Glaring conflicts of interest. Monumental waste. This is the Obama/Biden stimulus legacy bequeathed to our children and their grandchildren. Sheriff Joe and his plundering boss need to be run out of town on a rail. More here.
