Book Review: Abuse of Power: Inside The Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Purchase at Amazon.com

I have officially found a new author that I am adding to my ‘favorites’ list. His name is Fred Lucas. He has written a superb book entitled: Abuse of Power: Inside The Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump. If you want the truth about what went on during the witchhunt to impeach Trump, this is the book. I can’t recommend it enough and I personally believe everyone should get a copy.

Just as I strongly suspected, President Trump’s enemies had a plan in place to remove him even before he was inaugurated. Leftists could not stand the way the election turned out and how Hillary Clinton lost, so they implemented a strategy to bring a sitting president down in a soft coup. That coup had many facets, but the impeachment angle was one of the key elements of their plan. The hit job culminated in an election-year impeachment trial.

In the beginning… of the impeachment, per Lucas:

“And I document this in there that one of the first actions taken was [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren actually put forward a Senate bill on emoluments saying that Trump would be committing a high crime or misdemeanor if he did not divest all of his business holdings immediately. That bill went nowhere, but it was sort of symbolic.”

“From that point on, you had [Rep.] Maxine Waters pushing forward … what she called the “Impeach 45” movement. It had like a whole host of liberal nonprofits such as Tom Steyer, John Bonifaz, who ran this group Impeach Donald Trump Now.”

“So these things are all in place, eventually, after the inauguration and they continued, people were pressing.”

“There were actually three impeachment resolutions against Trump that reached the House floor that Congressman Al Green had managed to force a House floor … vote on these resolutions, well before the Ukrainian phone call. So basically, the bottom line is the push to impeach Trump did not start with a Ukrainian phone call.”

You’ll be shocked to know that all of those who were gunning for Trump are Marxists and they are still key players as presumptive President-elect Biden gets ready to finish stealing the election. When they could not prevent Trump from being elected and then could not remove him once he became president, the left vowed they would not let him be reelected. It is my opinion that they rigged the election nine ways from Sunday. Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden received 15 million more votes than Barack Obama?

The book exposes:

  • Why the depths of the Biden family’s international conflict of interests extend well beyond Ukraine and Burisma.
  • Why Nancy Pelosi caved to The Squad to maintain her speakership.
  • How Adam Schiff pushed Jerry Nadler out of the key spot to lead the impeachment.
  • How Lt. Col. Vindman set the impeachment saga in motion.
  • How Elizabeth Warren tried to set an impeachment trap for Trump even before the inauguration.
  • How Democrats abandoned what would have been a crowning liberal achievement in gun control legislation in order to pursue an impeachment that was destined to fail in the Senate.
  • How Mitt Romney’s vote to convict likely prevented three moderate Democrats from rebelling against party leaders.

Lucas envelops you in the history of previous impeachments. Then he takes apart the impeachment charges against President Trump. His research is meticulous and fascinating. It’s political insider baseball.

He explains that all impeachments have occurred during a culture-war. Impeachment was always meant to be a difficult endeavor, not to be taken lightly, and definitely not to be used as a political weapon. But that is exactly what the Democrats did. Fortunately, they were unsuccessful. The Trump impeachment stands out because the previous three presidential impeachment inquiries were all based on actual alleged violations of the law. Trump’s wasn’t.

The author is an actual reporter who covered the White House and did a great job of it. Lucas is an endangered species… he factually reports the news. He is also an award-winning journalist who has written and reported for The Daily Signal, Fox News, Newsmax, TheBlaze, Townhall, The Washington Examiner, The Federalist, The National Interest, History Magazine Quarterly, The American Spectator, The American Conservative, and other outlets.

Lucas was at the forefront of Trump’s impeachment proceedings. He tells a must-read story of what occurred during the hearings and what surrounded them. He gives you excellent research and a historical backdrop that provides you a great deal of insight into what transpired… in effect, it was a massive abuse of power.

Palestine: A Self-Imposed Prison

By: Tabitha Korol

Hayaat loves her grandmother, Sitti, who always reminisces and sings about her previous home and their life before the Arab-Israeli War of 1948.  In an effort to restore Sitti’s health, Hayaat and her friend, Samy, set out on a journey to the other side of the wall to bring her a gift of Jerusalem soil.  This children’s book exchanges the customary propaganda for Palestinianism for a search for the truth.  This is my eighth children’s book review.

Thirteen-year-old Hayaat is the heroine in Where the Streets Had a Name, by Randa Abdel-Fattah.  She lives with her Mama and Baba, siblings – older sister Jihan, 7-year-old brother Tariq, 3-month-old Mohammed – and 86-year-old grandmother, Sitti Zayneb. The family is preparing to shop during the two-hour respite from the curfew imposed by the Israeli government.  Not explained was that the Israeli army sometimes places refugee districts in the West Bank and Gaza under army curfew as “collective punishment” and “environmental pressures” after a terrorist attack or when they are unable to control population unrest in the streets.  We learn nothing of the Israeli victims who are seriously maimed or killed, or of the families left to grieve, but this family is inconvenienced as they rush to the store, each with a list of items by aisles, load the car, and return home in time.  The Israelis “confiscated our land,” Sitti laments, and the family of seven must manage in a smaller apartment in a poor Bethlehem neighborhood.

Additionally, Hayaat’s school is closed for the curfew’s duration, and she is tired of comments about her face – the contorted skin she sees in her mirror.  Her older sister Jihan is engaged to Ahmad, an Israeli Arab from Lod, who found a reception hall for their wedding in Ramallah, the West Bank, where he works and where they will live as a couple.  They grumble about the roadblocks and checkpoints that could delay their timely arrival at the wedding, but similar conditions exist worldwide to maintain security from interlopers and terrorists.  In the case of Israel, it is to ensure that Palestinians are unarmed and not bent on a killing spree.

The West Bank is Judea and Samaria, part of what the Israelis re-captured when they defended themselves against the unlawful siege and blockade of Israel by Egypt, Syria, and Jordan’s armies in 1967.  Despite the rhetoric, according to international law, this land is not “occupied,” but “disputed.” Inasmuch as the territory never belonged to Palestinians or to any sovereign nation, Israel cannot be an “occupier.”  The territory’s ultimate ownership is to be determined by agreement.  Further, the “1967 borders” were only the demarcation of an armistice line, the final border to be established by agreement.

Hayaat enjoys spending time with Baba, hearing his stories of their vast property in Beit Sahour, the olive trees, and the harvest.  He speaks of the mountain, home to many Christian sites, and the time before the Israeli “settlements” (a term used to delegitimize Israel’s legal housing) and bypass roads were built.

Her only friend is a boy, Samy, who doesn’t seem to mind her scars; they are kindred spirits and share their stories.  Samy’s father had been dragged from their house by Israeli security services and imprisoned these past seven years.  He was a terrorist, and the boy often acts out at school, angry that his father chose activism over fatherhood. He said, “He traded me for the cause.”  His mother died of a heart attack and Samy lives with an aunt and uncle.  Hayaat tells Samy that she overheard her Mama speak about a deaf boy who had been killed by a bulldozer that was flattening his house.  The author failed to explain that it is Israel’s policy to destroy the terrorist’s family home – sometimes seen as a deterrent; the death was an unfortunate accident.

At home, Hayaat listens to Sitti reminisce about her home in Jerusalem, and the war of 1948, the fighting everywhere.  She was terrified of the Zionist fighting forces and pressed to leave, adding “200 men, women and children were massacred.”  Perhaps Sitti does not know, but surely the author who undertook this narration does, that the Palestinian Arabs proclaimed jihad against the Palestinian Jews in November 1947, just before the partition vote, and in defiance of the Palestine Commission’s resolution.  There were massacres and death throughout.  No doubt the Jews were also ill-prepared and terrified when 1,000 armed Arabs descended upon the communities in northern Palestine, as were the British who turned over their bases to the Arab legion, leaving the Jews to suffer severe casualties and devastating defeat.  The trapped 1,500 to 1,600 women and children were entrusted to the Red Cross.  At this point, the Hagganah, a paramilitary group of immigrants, was renamed the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and succeeded in stopping the Arab offensive.

With minimal help from the West, the Jews won with sheer determination and their purchased or smuggled crude British Sten guns, French 65-millimeter howitzers, and other leftovers from World War II, as well as fighter aircraft supplied by Czechoslovakia.  Iraq promised, “It would be a war of annihilation,” but the Arabs wound up with less territory than was originally offered, which they’d refused.  The cost to Israel was enormous, with $500 million in expenditures and the death of 6,373 Israelis, one percent of their 650,000 Jewish population. An additional estimated 12,000 Jews were killed by Nazi sympathizer and Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini in 1950.

Sitti explains that they fled and could not return to her old neighborhood until after the 1967 War, only to find her home occupied by a Jewish family, Holocaust survivors.  Known also as the Six-Day War, it was initiated by the Arab states of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan.  Again, Israel won and re-captured the Sinai Peninsula, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip, and West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Grandmother was of that warring population and permanently displaced, but the Palestinians are adamant about wanting Israel.  Therefore, when Sitti collapses and is taken by ambulance to the hospital, Hayaat devises a plan.  She tells Samy that she wants to get Jerusalem soil from the other side of the wall to make her grandmother happy.

And so begins Hayaat and Samy’s journey to Jerusalem, with money “borrowed” from Jihan and an empty hummus jar to collect Jerusalem soil for Sitti.  They meet several people along the way, including Wasim, a dirty boy from Aida refugee camp, who speaks of one day playing with a famous soccer team; a cab driver who helps the children, knowing they are illegals with blue passes; bus passengers David and Mali, the story’s requisite young Jewish couple against the occupation, who block bulldozers and dine with Palestinian families; and the checkpoint’s young Israeli soldiers who search cars and bags, delaying some passengers while allowing others to pass.  Hayaat does feel some humiliation, but she understands their need to search for weapons and explosives.

They continue their adventure when the driver stops suddenly in front of a six-foot-high, barbed-wire wall.  The children exit the bus and follow two others who jump the wall to enter Jerusalem illegally. While on their own, they meet Yossi, an Israeli cab driver who often helps to smuggle people into West Jerusalem.  When they reach a roadblock protest, Yossi tells them to jump out and lose themselves among the crowd of protesters.

With the noise of a grenade and smell of tear gas used to quell the crowd, she faints to the triggers of a repressed memory of soldiers, a bulldozer, and homes breaking and falling.  She has a flashback of her old friend Maysaa falling to the ground, hit by the rubber-coated bullets used to disperse the people, and feels again her own face oozing blood.  She awakens as Yossi carries her to his cab, Samy beside them.  Yossi fills Hayaat’s jar with soil and uses his cell phone to call her family to assure them that the children are safe in Jerusalem and he will drive them home.

The family welcomes them and Sitti is again sitting in her bed, singing about her homeland.  With the next news report about another curfew, the family readies their pots and pans to resound in solidarity.  With the TV announcement about the latest bombing in Tel Aviv,  Baba says “revenge does nothing.”  As the family dresses for Jihan’s wedding, Hayaat assesses what she has learned – that she wants to live as all human beings do, to be “a free people with hope and dignity and purpose.”

Hope alone cannot bestow freedom to a people who deny others theirs.  Hayaat’s own people invented demonstrably false slurs that the Jews live well at the expense of the Palestinians and that killing is permissible. Their differences are also cultural.  The Jews returned to their land of malarial swamp and desert, sacrificed blood and treasure to restore their history and ancient language, and toiled to create a successful country, whereas the Arabs, after losing the war they began, were made to abandon their original heritage (Egyptian, Lebanese, Syria, Transjordan, Iraq) and replace it with the false identity of “Palestinians,” and a victimhood mentality.  When they accepted the world’s donations, they were robbed of their pride.  Palestinian leadership keeps their own people subjugated, their children emotionally focused on envy and weaponized for revenge.  This book reveals that they are surrounded by anger and death, with only Baba’s one-time reflection on the consequences of their actions.

It is not the soil of the land that would bring dignity to the Palestinians, but the freedom to live and make choices for themselves. The Arabs have been given a scapegoat, Israel, and countless excuses for their failures, which become self-fulfilling prophecies.  Were they told that their opportunities are endless, that they must earn their own wage by building their country, homes, businesses, creating services or products, they would increase their purpose, pride, and individual wealth.  Instead, the masses are raised in conformity, rigidity, illiteracy, and fear.  They sacrifice their own lives and wellbeing to continue Mohammed’s revenge – a ceaseless condition of discontent.

To her credit, Abdel-Fattah reveals that the previous generation perpetuates the vengeance.   Grandmother has confessed her envy of those who live better than she, and we glimpse the trait in Hayaat.  Sitti expresses her bitterness and anger against the UN, the Arab countries, and their traitors.  The traitors remain undefined, but they must include the Arabs who began the wars as well as those who offered no sanctuary to the dispossessed, those who were abandoned and left for pawns.  She reveals that her son-in-law, Baba, had had bad things happen to him (TK: he has learned lessons from his acts of retribution).  His generation includes Samy’s imprisoned father, whose political activism destroyed his own family.

We learn of Hayaat’s past when she fainted in the Jerusalem crowd, relived her trauma and the death of her friend.  It may well have been the girls’ deeds that resulted in the demolition of their homes.

This story appears to be teaching that the Islamic system, with its lust for what belongs to others, keeps them in a constant state of dissatisfaction.   The numerous clues and lessons to be learned exist for the reader, but they may be too obscure for the designated audience of teens and young adults.

Joan Swirsky Interviews author Linda Goudsmit on her recently published opus: The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness

By: Joan Swirsky | Canada Free Press

The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness

Joan Swirsky Interviews author Linda Goudsmit on her recently published opus, The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’.

Joan (JS): Linda…when did you have the blazing insight that what you were witnessing in the politics of American leftists were not sincere efforts to improve the system, but rather elaborate hoaxes designed to destroy our country?  

Linda (LG): From 2017 to 2019––I wrote a number of articles in response to current events. At about the third article, I realized that there was a consistent pattern of leftist political policies that were presented as altruistic, but in reality were deceitful, tactical, political strategies deliberately designed to collapse––to destroy––America from within.

JS: Indeed, your book spells out the quite astounding number of 50 Humanitarian Hoaxes! And quite courageously, you identify the culprits you believe are responsible for this malevolent con job on America. I must add here that readers can also access your articles at: lindagoudsmit.com and goudsmit.pundicity.com

LG: Yes, there are many perpetrators of this stealth attack––and malevolence describes its destructiveness. But the Huckster-in-Chief is Barack Hussein Obama who, from his first appearance on the national and international stage, proclaimed his intention to ”fundamentally transform America.” Of course, most Americans had no idea that Obama’s goal was to replace our constitutional republic with socialism. We are witnessing the extraordinary success of his seditious plan today.

As I explain in my book, it takes ideology and money to fundamentally transform America. Obama’s anti-American, pro-Muslim, Marxist ideology is taught through Common Core in schools across America. The Black Lives Matter and Antifa so-called protestors who are rampaging through our country today, toppling historical statues and proclaiming their goal to destroy our Constitutional Republic, are actually graduates of our own public school system. They are acting with the incitement of Obama’s resistance group, Organizing for Action (OFA), as well as with the collusion of the globalist media, the collaboration of the RINOs and corrupt radical leftist Democrats in Congress, and the cooperation of Democrat mayors and governors––all of them financed courtesy of their globalist handlers.

JS: And you elaborate in your book what their end game is.

LG: Yes, for these Marxists, the end game of socialism is communism. But for the globalists who finance their mayhem, the end game of socialism is the new world order––a one-world government ruled by the globalist elite themselves, of course! BLM and Antifa are simply useful idiots. Their supporters are low-information individuals who have no clue that the globalists bankrolling this global anarchy and social chaos fully intend to impose a one-world government through the auspices of the United Nations.

JS: In your book, you also describe how both corporate sponsors and businesses support radical groups like BLM and Antifa. 

LG: Yes––follow the money. It’s always about following the money. The corporate sponsors of BLM and Antifa, et al, know exactly what the plan is. The 279 globalist companies currently supporting BLM, for instance, manufacture their goods with cheap labor in China. President Trump put the hurt on China with his devastating tariffs and it is a financial nightmare for these globalist companies. They want to get rid of Trump and go back to business as usual with a guy like Biden—a corrupt Democrat tool of the globalists and communist Chinese.

JS: The whole notion of a hoax is something that fools both the American and the international public. What ingredients do you believe went into fooling such a massive number of people when it came to electing an inexperienced community organizer to the presidency of the U.S.?

LG: After WWII it was obvious to the entire world that America could not be defeated militarily. But our enemies did not go quietly into the night. They regrouped and revised their tactical attack plan as an insidious Culture War designed to collapse America from within. They targeted the three supporting pillars of American society––Family, Faith, and Flag. They pitted American capitalism vs socialism, American individualism vs socialist collectivism, American freedom vs cradle-to-grave dependency on government. And then they groomed the perfect candidate, Barack Obama, to do their bidding.

JS: You’ve written in-depth about the two main weapons in the Culture War.

LG: Yes. They are: (1) psychological regression and (2) disinformation. Radical leftist Democrats routinely engage in political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism, all basic operating principles of the disinformation campaign. Children do not question what they are told––and neither do psychologically regressed, propagandized leftist liberals, who happen to be chronological adults. They really are Regressives, not Progressives. You can see this every day when perfectly normal-looking people embody the Humanitarian Hoax behaviors described in my book. They are emotional children disguised as adults.

JS: Which of the 50 humanitarian hoaxes you’ve written about is most relevant in today’s society?

LG: The Humanitarian Hoax of Eternal Childhood. It explains in explicit detail the crippling effect of pressuring a society toward regression and dependence rather than emotional maturity and independence. Again, we see this today in the young people, who have been dumbed down in America’s public schools, willingly taking money to “protest” a system they are ignorant of. Watch them being interviewed—it’s a national embarrassment!

JS: To tantalize our readers, please explain briefly the following Humanitarian Hoaxes (HH):

LG: Diversity is presented as leftist tolerance, inclusiveness, and compassion. In reality, there is NO diversity of opinion tolerated by the Left. Leftist diversity is presented as altruism but designed to eliminate freedom of thought and freedom of speech.

Man-made Climate Change is presented as the most serious challenge facing humanity. The leftist narrative claims all efforts must be directed at saving the planet from global warming or we will all perish in 12 years. In reality, climate-change hysteria is the United Nations’ political scheme to transfer the wealth of productive industrialized nations (especially the U.S.) to non-industrialized, non-productive nations. It is globalized socialism.

Gun Control is presented as an effort to reduce gun violence in society. In reality, gun control is the effort to eliminate the Second Amendment and disarm the public, something our Founding Fathers were determined to avoid.

Community Organizing is presented as the altruistic effort to end poverty. In reality, community organizing is the Cloward-Piven strategy to overload the welfare system and collapse the U.S. economy.

The Muslim Brotherhood presents itself as a civil rights organization advocating peace and tolerance. In reality, the Brotherhood’s mission is to subjugate host populations in North America and replace host religions and cultures with Islam and Sharia law.

Planned Parenthood presents itself as the ultimate healthcare provider to an underserved population and a provider of sex-education to schools. In reality, Planned Parenthood is an active participant in the Culture War on America, attempting to promote gender confusion, promiscuous sex, and unrestricted abortion-on-demand.

JS: The readers you’ve inspired over the past several years want to know what’s next?

LG: Of course I will continue to write political analysis for adults. My focus, however, is on America’s children. It is essential that American children are taught critical-thinking skills again. My personal contribution to that effort is my children’s picture-book series, Mimi’s Strategies. Nationally, the Department of Education must be completely overhauled in both form and content. If one more generation of American children is indoctrinated with anti-American propaganda touting the wonders of collectivism, when these mal-informed kids turn 18 and vote for socialism we will lose the country––a revolution without bullets!

JS: In less than three months, we will vote in perhaps the most consequential presidential election in American history. In terms of today’s tumultuous politics––a president dealing with an unprecedented pandemic and severely injured economy, his rival clearly dealing with clinical cognitive impairment, a radical leftist media not even pretending to be objective, and a push for mail-in voting which is notorious for massive voter fraud––what is your gut instinct about the upcoming presidential election on November 3, 2020?

LG: I remain optimistic, Joan. I wrote The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes in advance of the 2020 presidential election to make sure voters know WHAT they are voting for, not just WHO they are voting for. This is no small thing. This election is between Trump’s Americanism and Biden’s globalism.

The radical leftist Democrat Party has an anti-American, socialist agenda that seeks to weaken America. They have ignored WHAT President Trump has accomplished to strengthen America and, instead, engaged in four-years of character assassination and false accusations to destroy Trump and his America-first agenda.

President Donald Trump is the existential enemy of globalism. His proud and unapologetic America-first policies are the intractable obstacle to Obama’s insidious plan to transform America into socialism—the stepping stone to globalism’s one-world government. The Democrats have shown they will lie, cheat, and try to steal the election to defeat Trump and bury the serious and indictable crimes the Obama regime has committed.

However, I just don’t think Americans are buying what the Democrats are selling. I believe Trump will be reelected in a landslide.

Book Review – The Book Of Humanitarian Hoaxes

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Order on Amazon

One of my favorite people and authors is Linda Goudsmit. She has a new book out entitled: The Book Of Humanitarian Hoaxes. The book is comprised of a series of 50 articles published on her blog over the last three years. It’s a terrific read and I highly recommend it. NoisyRoom is always thrilled to publish her posts when they come out — they are just that good.

Here is the summary of the book from Amazon.com:

The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’, exposes fifty of the most sinister leftist, Islamist, globalist interconnecting attacks on America deceitfully disguised as altruism. Goudsmit’s warning is designed to ensure an informed American electorate in advance of the pivotal 2020 presidential election. The Book is a powerful éxpose of the deceptive policies and practices of the Leftist/Islamist/Globalist axis attempting to destroy America from within. Goudsmit’s unique talent is deciphering the many political hoaxes being played on us by those who present themselves as our advocates but who are, in fact, America’s enemies. This remarkable book tells us the many ways in which we’ve been had–but don’t know it. The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’, describes the corrupt underbelly of the Leftist/Islamist/Globalist axis attacking America, American democracy, and America-first President Donald J. Trump. Written in her signature conversational style, each hoax chapter unmasks a distinct and destructive axis policy deceitfully presented to an unsuspecting public as humanitarian. Americans do not like being duped. Linda Goudsmit is the consummate truth-teller in an era of profound political deceit. The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’ should be compulsory reading in advance of the crucial 2020 U.S. presidential election.

American voters would do well to heed Linda’s advice concerning the upcoming presidential election. The Leftist/Islamist/Globalist axis (more commonly known as the Red/Green axis) is the biggest threat to America’s survival out there. It has become a standing joke that what the left accuses the right of, they themselves are guilty of. All the dishonest and criminal deflection from the left is coordinated, planned, and meant to rip this country apart. And they are having some success in that endeavor currently. Under the guise of being ‘humanitarian’, the left is instead itching to stomp on the Constitution and burn it all down so they can remake America in their own Marxist image. They disguise manipulation as ‘kindness’… it’s a deadly trap.

Linda’s writing cuts to the heart of the duplicity of globalists and how they in reality want to implement a one-world government. That’s been the game played for decades now if not longer. Much of this has been pushed and promoted by Obama and Biden… two men who are far more evil than just about anyone out there will admit. Obama schemed to take out Trump before he ever left office and his machinations can be seen in the protests unfolding now as well as the witch hunt against President Trump. Obama is the head of the snake for the Deep State. He covered his tracks well and has left others to take the blame over the soft coup attempted against Trump. Obama orchestrated it and he’s still hatching plots against the President all the while getting wealthier and more powerful by the day.

From The Post & Email’s interview with Linda Goudsmit:

“He knows what he’s doing. My personal feeling about Donald Trump is he came to office because he loves this country, and he wanted to run the country as a profitable family business — the American family business. I don’t think ever in a million years he dreamed of how the depth and the breadth of the Washington swamp were against him. I don’t think his civilized mind could absorb that, although it does now. Think about who he had around him in the beginning; he had to get rid of Tillerson, McMaster — they were all globalists. Look at Pelosi and Feinstein, the Chinese…my husband calls what is happening now with the COVID19 disinformation campaign ‘globalist Armageddon.’ They really, really want to remove Trump from office and put in one of their globalist puppets like Biden.”

More:

If Trump is re-elected, she opined, “the entire infrastructure of the Deep State is going to be dismantled. We’re going to see a huge change in this country. Then he could really clean house,” which she envisions could include a full overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), current and former high-ranking FBI officials, and other former federal officials, of whom she said, “I wonder who is going to be the one to turn on Obama.”

“I think most Americans have no idea of the level of corruption or danger that they’re in in terms of their freedom,” Goudsmit said. “The big lie is, ‘Everything is going to be great with socialism.’ If their critical-thinking skills hadn’t been pounded out of them in school, all they would have to do is look at any other country in the world where it’s been tried.”

Linda is right… most Americans have no idea how deep and widespread the corruption actually is. If they did, there would be a massive revolt over it. Socialism/Marxism/Communism/Islamism is poison to our Republic. Read her book — it is an eye-opener and your primer for the 2020 election. You can pick up a copy at Amazon. In my opinion, it’s one of the best books of 2020.

The Post & Email Interviews “Humanitarian Hoax” Author Linda Goudsmit

The Post & Email

“WHO BENEFITS?”

by Sharon Rondeau

(May 5, 2020) — Last week, The Post & Email had the pleasure of interviewing Linda Goudsmit, the author of a sizable series published on her blog over nearly three years.  Recently Goudsmit compiled all 50 articles into a book titled, The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes:  Killing America with ‘Kindness’.

Her articles can be found at The Post & Email and have also been carried by RenewAmericaCanada Free Press, and RightSideNews.

Linda dedicated her new book to her husband, Rob, as well as to author, columnist, and registered nurse Joan Swirsky, whose work is also published at The Post & EmailCanada Free Press, and other sites.

Goudsmit told us that her series arose from her conclusion that there is “a monstrous power-grab” aimed at consolidating authority under the United Nations to enable “one-world government.”

Contemplating her launch of the articles, which total 50, Goudsmit told us, “To me, it’s so interesting.  I’m 72 years old; I never, ever dreamed that in my retirement, I would become a political analyst.  I was an English major in college, and reading and analyzing books was my life.  I have four children, the oldest born in 1973 and the youngest in 1979, the year President Carter established the U.S. Department of Education.  I noticed the change in education when my youngest child was in elementary school in the 80s.  It was called ‘cooperative learning.’  Instead of individual learning, students learned in groups and the schools started introducing pro-collectivist materials into the educational curriculum.”

Fast-forward to today, Goudsmit observed, “It’s frightening.  Now we’re in the third generation of students indoctrinated toward collectivism and one-world government. I didn’t understand then what I was looking at, but what I understood was that when I was young, there were social pressures.  At that time, you grew up; you became a solid citizen, you pledged allegiance to the United States of America. People had differences of opinion but we loved the country; we were taught to love the country.”

Continuing, she said:

I could see that there was enormous regressive pressure not to grow up, and I could see how disruptive it was to society.  Chronological adults were behaving like adolescents. Today, when you look at some of these protesters, they act as if they’re having temper tantrums.  Even in politics, you see how out-of-control they are with what they say and do. We’re encouraged not to assume adult responsibilities.

So in 1995, I started writing down my observations and wrote a philosophy book titled, Dear America: Who’s Driving the Bus?  I couldn’t get it published; no one wanted it, so I threw it in a drawer.  In 2011, when self-publishing started, I figured, “OK, I’m going to do this.”  When it was in the editorial phase, I had a marvelous editor, and she remarked, “This is really political.”  I was confused because I didn’t write Dear America to be political.  I wrote down my observations about the regressive pressures in society and presented a behavioral paradigm that I’m really, really proud of, even more than I was then.

When I was in college, there was nothing that ever really satisfied me to explain why people do what they do.  Explanations were either too parochial and too “this religion says this” and “this religion says that”; or were cultural. I wanted some universal answers to my questions. For myself, I answered it, and that is the paradigm I present in Dear America. Basically, what it’s saying is that we’re all the sum of our parts and that we all develop psychologically on the emotional side in precisely the same way.  So there’s the emotional or psychological development and then there’s physical development.  With the physical, if you’re lucky enough and don’t get hit by a car, you grow up to maturity.

From the emotional point of view, my theory of behavior is this:  we each develop inner entities which stay with us throughout our whole life even though they’re buried deep inside.  A lot of them come from trauma. Let’s say you’re ten and your father dies:  that’s a very sad ten-year-old who lives inside you.  My theory is that we live on a continuum and that our most rational adult self is who should be driving the bus.  The seminal question is, “Who’s driving the bus?”  Is it the most rational adult self or the sad ten-year-old or the angry adolescent or the crying two-year-old?  They all live inside of us and are like lobbyists, all vying for control.  My point is that we have to be responsible for of our entities and all of our decisions.

The entities continue to develop as we age as a natural thing.  My theory is that we can be triggered to have a younger entity take control of the bus, and then society’s in trouble, because freedom is an adult enterprise.  Freedom requires self-restraint and the acknowledgement of other:  that you, Sharon, are as important as I, Linda.  We may disagree, but we agree that we each are important entities that have value.  A narcissist doesn’t think like that; we all start out as total self-absorbed narcissists; a five-year-old doesn’t care that Mom and Dad are knocking themselves out to put food on the table; he just wants the food.

In the 1990s my civilized mind simply could not process that society’s regression was deliberate. Now my working theory is: if you want to know the motive, look at the results.  I began to ask myself what happens to a society that’s reduced to childhood, where you have a bunch of chronological adults acting like five-year-olds?  The country is unsustainable.  So what happens when there’s social chaos?  Then comes the military takeover and the police state.

Who benefits from a regressed society?  It became so clear to me, and that’s when I started writing the “Hoax” articles.  I actually started writing political analysis because of Joan Swirsky.  I was thinking about these things but writing only editorials. Joan had written an article having to do with “Obama’s treachery” and her theory on why.  It was a fabulous article; I took issue with some of it and wrote an editorial, but at the time the comments were closed.  So I sent it directly to her because there was an email address.  That’s how I met her, and we started communicating, and we became very close friends.  She is one of the most extraordinary women I’ve ever met and a very persuasive human being. She said to me, “Linda, forget the editorials; you have to write articles.”  I said, “Huh?  Who wants to read what I’m thinking?”  But she said, “I promise you…” So I started writing articles, and then I couldn’t stop; it was one after another.  I started writing the “Hoax” articles and didn’t think of it as a series at the time. By maybe the tenth one, Joan is the one who said, “Linda, you have to turn this into a book.”  “Who wants to read that?” I thought. When I got to 50, I realized what was going on in terms of the attempted take-downs of a president of the United States.  I’m all for a good debate, but what I cannot stand is the cheating and the lying and the presenting of themselves as your advocate when really, they’re the enemy.

Once I understood that the whole globalist, leftist, Islamist axis is aligned in common cause to take down Trump, it really made me angry.  The enemies arrayed against Trump are all anti-American and anti-America-First policies.  Some of them are the globalists we know, like George Soros and Bill Gates; these are the people who want a one-world government. They want the UN “Agenda 2030” and its 17 Sustainable Goals which are a recipe and a blueprint for a one-world government, run, of course, by the global elite.  And the WHO is part of the UN.  When you see how deeply infected our own governmental agencies are with this — from Obama — he politicized every one of them. And the CDC?  Who would think in a million years that a public-health agency is as corrupt as the rest of them?

Goudsmit said she observed the push toward “globalism” prior to Trump’s election and was facilitated by “puppets” such as Obama and Joe Biden, Obama’s vice president and now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to face Trump in the fall.

Of her thoughts on Trump, she said, “He knows what he’s doing.  My personal feeling about Donald Trump is he came to office because he loves this country, and he wanted to run the country as a profitable family business — the American family business.  I don’t think ever in a million years he dreamed of how the depth and the breadth of the Washington swamp were against him.  I don’t think his civilized mind could absorb that, although it does now.  Think about who he had around him in the beginning; he had to get rid of Tillerson, McMaster — they were all globalists.  Look at Pelosi and Feinstein, the Chinese…my husband calls what is happening now with the COVID19 disinformation campaign ‘globalist Armageddon.’ They really, really want to remove Trump from office and put in one of their globalist puppets like Biden.”

Goudsmit also said that “corruption” and “insider trading” are rampant among America’s elected officials.  “It is an excellent argument for term limits,” she said.

If Trump is re-elected, she opined, “the entire infrastructure of the Deep State is going to be dismantled.  We’re going to see a huge change in this country.  Then he could really clean house,” which she envisions could include a full overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), current and former high-ranking FBI officials, and other former federal officials, of whom she said, “I wonder who is going to be the one to turn on Obama.”

“I think most Americans have no idea of the level of corruption or danger that they’re in in terms of their freedom,” Goudsmit said.  “The big lie is, ‘Everything is going to be great with socialism.’  If their critical-thinking skills hadn’t been pounded out of them in school, all they would have to do is look at any other country in the world where it’s been tried.”

Book Review… Hotel USSR: Memoirs of a Soviet ‘non-Artist’

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Purchase at Amazon

One of my greatest joys and honors has been knowing Oleg Atbashian… the owner of The People’s Cube, a superb author, and one of the most gifted graphic artists I have ever known.

Oleg comes from Russia but he is American through and through. Over the years it has become evident to me that those who have experienced the oppression of true communism are the most adamant defenders of freedom out there. Oleg’s latest book: Hotel USSR: Memoirs of a Soviet ‘non-Artist’ is based on his own life story.

As a child, Oleg was a gifted artist with dreams like the rest of us, but under communism, you are selected for your vocation and if you are not willing to follow the diktats of the leadership you find yourself in very hot water. I found his telling of his childhood journey and what he went through very compelling and amusing.

Amazon describes the book this way:

As a child, he was promised abundance and freedom in a communist paradise. In that bright future, he dreams of being an artist. But as he grows up, he discovers that his dream is based on a fraud and that his country is really a dictatorship governed by bullies, liars, and thieves. He and the girl he loves find themselves trapped in a labyrinth of a dysfunctional utopia they call “Hotel USSR.” Every aspect of their lives is regulated by improbable rules that override human nature. To live their dream, they decide to break the law. This takes him on a series of tragicomical adventures that feel like acts in the theater of the absurd: a worker in Siberian oil fields, an army conscript, an inmate at a forensic psychiatry facility, a visual propaganda artist, a Soviet dissident, and an immigrant to America. And everywhere he goes he draws pictures…

Oleg’s life is one long adventure. He did the artwork for NoisyRoom.net and he has always been kind and generous when I’ve asked something of him. He has drawn the covers of books of some of the very best authors out there: Trevor Loudon, Cliff Kincaid, Paul Kengor, Larry Grathwohl, and others. You can see some of his work here.

Here is what Oleg wrote after he finished his latest work:

I’m happy to report that I’ve just published my second book, Hotel USSR. It’s a story of а young man coming of age in a totalitarian state. He wants to be an artist but he isn’t authorized to buy paints. He wants to see the world but the authorities brand him as politically unreliable. He wants to get married but the system separates him from his bride. He listens to Hotel California and wishes he had their problems: he himself is stuck in a real-life trap that he “can never leave,” and he calls it Hotel USSR. To check out, he must break every rule in the book.

This young man is me and this is my real life story. People have often asked me what growing up in the USSR felt like. This book is my answer. It’s illustrated with my own drawings and paintings, which I did in my twenties before I quit drawing. The reason for quitting is in there as well.

In addition to it being humorous and entertaining, I hope this story can be an eye-opener for younger people who may naively believe in the false promise of socialism. Rather than debating Marxism directly, I demonstrate how it fails in practice and what absurdities ensue when the entire state lives in denial of its failures, forcing people not to trust their own eyes. The book describes socialism as an attempt to regulate human existence in cumbersome ways that defy human nature, leaving no doubt that to build “real socialism that works” is no more possible than to build a house based on an optical illusion.

I highly recommend Hotel USSR: Memoirs of a Soviet ‘non-Artist’. If you want to know what it is like to have to live under communism/socialism, this book is a must-read. It’s also a cautionary tale to young Americans on why they should avoid the evils of Marxism at all costs. Pick up a copy at Amazon – I know you will love it as much as I did.
