Bitcoin Under Elitist Attack

New hit piece from The New York Times, suggesting Bitcoin's price last year was manipulated.

Nah--the entire financial system is manipulated, by the Rothschilds and a handful of other families.

Millions of us see through the facade, and we are sick of those families, and the rigged currencies they issue.

Bitcoin is mineable, meaning no free lunches. Bitcoins aren't created out of thin air, ever. Instead, they are created through a computer labor-intensive task known as "mining."

Trump & Kim Summit: Redefining History

Americans waited with high hopes as Trump and Kim Jong Un began talks late last evening at 9 PM ET.  As the leaders met for the first time face to face, Kim and Trump were all smiles. Shaking hands with each other, as the Korean and America flags stood next to each other as equals. 

Trump's face to face meeting with Kim was historical, as it is the first time a sitting US President has ever met a North Korean leader face to face. Even if no agreement had been formally reached, the meeting itself was a huge step forward for foreign policy. 

Trump and Kim later discussed behind closed doors their agreements during a working lunch, while CNN interviewed Dennis Rodman, who dropped a bombshell on air.  

Rodman recalls asking Obama to listen to him, as he personally knew Kim Jong Un, and had offered to help with the North Korea crisis. Obama ignored him and did not pursue the offer.  Rodman broke down in tears as he spoke about the historical summit, praising the leaders for meeting together.  

Shortly after the private meeting, Trump and Kim announced their formal agreement to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

In light of the historical summit, Trump has proven the instincts of a billionaire who wrote the Art Of The Deal, is a master negotiator. While his approach may be unconventional, it is undeniable that Trump is a force on the world stage. As Trump has pulled off what was once deemed impossible, there is no limits to what Trump can accomplish as a leader, who just made the Art Of The Deal into a historical footnote.

G7 Summit: Redefining Trade

Over the weekend, Trump arrived at the 44th G7 Summit, held in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada. His presence stole the center of the world stage as he stood poised and ready to ask for reciprocal and fair trade between all countries involved. 

Ahead of his visit, he tweeted that he looked forward to straightening out trade deals. He also tweeted that Canada taxed dairy farmers at a rate of 270%, ramping up attention towards Canada as one of the perpetrators of unfair trade practices. Trump has brought up many times over the past year unfair trade deals while hinting at pulling out of NAFTA as well as if more fair and equal pay did not happen. Ahead of the visit, Trump administration also recently imposed a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum for Canada, Mexico, and European Union. The move made for some tension ahead of the summit visit, but Trump remained resolved to fighting unfair trade. 

 

Trump kicks off G-7 summit with dings at Canada, Europe over trade policies

President Trump came out swinging as he entered the G-7 summit in Quebec on Friday, vowing to fight unfair trade policies despite terse warnings from U.S. allies over his administration's tough new tariffs.    

Upon his arrival, a reporter asked Trump if the Allies were "angry" with him over the recent trade spars. Trump questioned which organization he was with, to which the reporter confirmed he was with CNN. Trump roasted the reporter, responding "I figured, Fake news CNN. The worst."

This is particularly genius. As CNN gets called out on the world stage, many other leaders such as Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, have also been calling out the fake news media in recent months.  It is undeniable that Trump's stance on the practices of media misleading the public is gaining global attention. 

Trump reminded the allies at G7 summit that the United States was no longer going to be robbed with unfair trade practices, and was happy to walk away from the table if there were no good deals. 

The meeting between allies showed one stark picture, which showed the absolute resolve on Trump's face as everyone watched the exchange between Merkel and Trump. It was almost like his expression was saying "Try me." And I think, it will stand as one of the more iconic photos to date of Trump the negotiator. It truly shows a contrast between Obama who was always laughing it up with the allies, to a resolved Trump, ready to enact his infamous negotiation skills. 

Shortly after Trump departed for the historic Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un, Trump called out Prime Minister Trudeau, on his dishonest news conference he held afterward. He also refused to sign G7 communique statement, stating that Trudeau is weak and knows better how he's ripping off the US in trade. 

Trump Refuses to Sign G-7 Statement and Calls Trudeau ‘Weak’

In a remarkable pair of acrimony-laced tweets, Mr. Trump threatened to escalate his trade war and derided Canada’s prime minister as "very dishonest."    

After Trump's arrival in Singapore, he again doubled down and reiterated his trade stance in a tweet storm, promising that it would change, while calling out the massive deficits happening under the current agreements.  

20180611_095922.jpg

Trump's ongoing trade war with China so far has added an agriculture deal, which helps American farmers. China also conceded to lower automobile tariffs, lowering from 25 percent to 15 percent. 

Trump says China agreed to good deal for American farmers

President Trump touted in a tweet on Monday China’s promise to buy more US agricultural products following trade talks between the two countries, calling it a good deal for American farmers. …    

China Makes Massive Cut to Car Tariffs After Truce With Trump

China will cut the import duty on passenger cars to 15 percent, further opening up a market that’s been a chief target of the U.S. in its trade fight with the world’s second-largest economy.    

I think with Trump at the negotiation table, there is a lot of confidence that he will take home some wins from G7 Summit.  He is resolved to fighting for the American workers in securing trade deals that benefit countries equally. As long as Trump is at the negotiation table, I believe that he will bring home some of the best deals in years, further spurring on the economic growth jumpstarted by tax cuts and reducing government waste.

The President of Second Chances

In just one month, Trump has made historical pardons in the case of Jack Johnson and Alice Johnson. In doing so and righting wrongs, Trump is changing the unfairness of the justice system towards the black community.  

In the case of Jack Johnson, Sylvester Stallone approached President Trump and suggested consideration of the pardon of the first heavyweight black boxing champion. Trump agreed and granted a full posthumous pardon.

20180606_140811.jpg

Trump Pardons Jack Johnson, Heavyweight Boxing Champion

Jack Johnson's miscarriage of justice began when he was convicted of the Mann Act, a law which was created to prevent trafficking and prostitution across state lines. In taking his white girlfriend at the time over a state line, Johnson was racially targeted and sentenced.  

In the past, Obama was approached about considering a pardon for the legend, to which he never took the opportunity to do so.  Former president George W. Bush was also approached and subsequently turned down the idea of a pardon. 

'It's about time:' The 97-year history of Jack Johnson's quest for a pardon

Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother, served lockup for over 20 years after conviction of a drug trafficking crime. After her child was killed in a motorcycle accident and a divorce, Alice made bad choices which led to her lockup as a first time non-violent drug offender. During her time incarcerated, Alice became an ordained minister and found God.  

Kim Kardashian became interested in Alice Johnson's case after seeing her story on twitter. Kim understood that Alice went through a rough time with a divorce, a death of a child, and made choices that forever changed her life. Upon hearing Alice's story, Kim decided to get involved and help change Alice's life. As a result, Kim visited President Trump with an open mind and lobbied for the release of Alice. Trump agreed and Alice, on the same day as her birthday, was granted clemency, agreeing that Alice deserved a second chance at life. 

Why Kim Kardashian wanted President Trump to free me

20180606_140843.jpg
20180608_230410.jpg

I think in light of both Jack Johnson and Alice Johnson, Trump has shown that the injustice of both Jack and Alice didn't have to be permanently etched into history. Upon hearing both cases, Trump's heart reached out and corrected the wrongs committed. When we look at the justice system, it is true that many people are incarcerated harshly for smaller crimes, and I think that an overhaul in the justice system is needed when the incarceration rate is much higher in the United States than many other countries. It is true, that marijuana possession contributes to almost HALF of the drug arrests in the US.

Marijuana Arrests by the Numbers

In recent news, Trump is rumored to be deciding on ending the federal ban on marijuana soon. Ending the federal ban would free up some of the excessive incarceration of small-time drug offenders. Many of these offenders, were working and self-sufficient members of society. And if you think about it, it is a little silly to make pot illegal when alcohol does so much more damage, when you look at the drunk driving statistics. 

20180608_231513.jpg

I think, in time, Trump may well be the first president in a long time to address the issue of an overpopulated incarceration rate. As it stands, per capita, the US is the highest next to Russia.  It also is true, that prison reform may well be another indelible mark of the Trump Doctrine. As the case stands with Alice Johnson and Jack Johnson, second chances can change a life by giving redemption to those who have proven they have more than served their time behind bars.

Seaman v. IAC et al filed in federal court

Announcement:

Our founder David Seaman took legal action this morning against Barry Diller/IAC, The Daily Beast, and Jennings Brown by filing a Complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Although David has no interest in litigating this case in public or over social media, we want our supporters to be aware of this lawsuit. We will be posting a copy of the Federal Court Complaint to FULCRUM later today. A copy of the Complaint is available now via PACER. They won’t get away with what they have done.


500 Days: And Just Getting Started

President Trump has had an eventful, successful, and historic first 500 days of accomplishments.  In fact, it is more significant in light of a stagnant Congress, a witch hunt that has wasted millions of taxpayer money, and an embattled government. Despite it all, the list of accomplishments is historical. 

Some of the accomplishments:

-Withdrew from Iran Deal

-Actively pursuing denuclearization of North Korea

-4 Americans released from both Venezuela and North Korea in just May, alone

-Issued 22 deregulatory actions

-Cut massive red tape to result in 56M annual savings

-Black Unemployment 5.9%. Women 3.5%. Hispanic 4.9%. Record numbers for the American public

-4 billion to fight Opioid Epidemic

-Child tax credit doubled

-Repealed Obamacare Individual mandate 

-Enacted massive tax cuts, which resulted in company bonuses, jobs growth, and private sector growth 

-6.6 Million Job Openings 

-U.S. Embassy Moved to Jerusalem 

-ISIS has been decimated 

-Unemployment levels lowest in 18 years

-3 million jobs added since taking office

-304,000 Manufacturing jobs have been created

-337,000 construction jobs, at a highest level since June 2008

-Pay raise for troops, largest defense budget in years

-Executive order to expand apprenticeship opportunities 

-17 year high on consumer confidence 

-Corporate tax rate lowered from 35% to 21% to enable more competitive growth

-Agriculture gained new markets

-Crackdown on bad trade deals

-Courts packed with more conservative judges

-Gorsuch appointed SCOTUS

- Gina Haspel, first female confirmed to lead CIA

-Legislation passed to bring more accountability to Dept. Of Veteran Affairs

-V.A. Choice and Quality Employment Act

-Withdrew from Trans-Pacific Agreement

-Crackdowns on imports of drugs to stop from reaching communities

-Right to try Bill signed into law

Trump's accomplishments are a much larger list than just listed, but the highlights alone show a dedicated president who is TRULY putting America first.  

500 days and the list is growing by the day.  While fake news media attacks President Trump daily, he rolls up his sleeves and continually keeps plugging away at making America Great Again. The media, who in the pastime attacked former presidents for failing to keep promises, Trump is actually keeping them, and the media attacks him still. The fortitude that Trump displays is nothing short of amazing. 

20180605_110457.jpg

I know personally, when I first voted for Trump, I knew he would be a good President.  But his first 500 days has far exceeded my own expectations. This is a President who is working for free, and the media attacks him like never before. At this point, I would be worried if the media had anything good to say about the accomplishments that Trump keeps adding to his presidential resume. Trump's first 500 days was really just a warmup. 

And we are just getting started.

A Media Takeover?

After Obama's departure from the White House, many former administration officials went on to work for the media in one way or another. Clapper, Obama's former DNI, went on to work at CNN. Yes, the very same guy who leaked the Steele Dossier happens to now work for CNN. HOW CONVENIENT.

GOP report: Clapper told CNN host about Trump dossier in 2017

THIS IS CNN: Hiring of Suspected Leaker Clapper Raises Ethical Questions | Sara A. Carter

Then, John Brennan, Director of CIA, went to work for NBC News as a paid contributor. Another convenient hire. 

The Spies Who Came in to the TV Studio

Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor, went on to board of directors at Netflix, along with the Obamas signing a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce documentaries. All a mixture of scripted, and unscripted series. 

Netflix says it has signed Barack and Michelle Obama

What a bunch of amazing coincidences right?  

I think that the amount of people who have served the past administration going into media is NO coincidence. It seems too convenient when you have top advisors and their own advantage of being able to control the narrative at media studios. As more truth comes out, who's to say they wouldn't use damage control to their own advantage? Anyone should be wary of what it all means when you think of the amount of leverage that it gives a former corrupt administration. It is a means of defense and spinning the truth to continue to gaslight their own viewers. The Obama's Netflix deal is surely going to be propaganda. Thankfully, thousands of people have spoken up already by canceling Netflix.

SPYGATE: The Backpedaling Begins

The media launched major backpedaling after Trump tweeted about the spy in his campaign, which set the internet abuzz. 

Hysterically, after first admitting last week as New York Times reported, they claimed the SPY wasn't a SPY, but an informant, to only investigate Russia ties. 

F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims

Which brings us to another question. If the "Informant" was there to investigate Russia ties with the concerns of them infiltrating campaigns... Why wasn't Hillary's campaign ALSO protected? Just doesn't add up right?  

Trump brought more heat to Clapper over the week, as he quoted Clapper saying "he should be happy" the informant was embedded in the campaign. 

20180525_173309.jpg

Clapper then claimed that the FBI wasn't spying, it was "Benign Information Gathering". So Benign, that Hillary's campaign, again, was never given the same amount of attention. The spinning is truly amazing. 

Clapper: The FBI Wasn't Spying On Trump, It Was "Benign Information Gathering"

On top of Clapper backpedaling, media also piled on saying it was taken out of context.  

Analysis | Trump misquotes James Clapper to push ‘SPYGATE’ narrative

Trump then called the Democrats and media out over misdirection to the public, for saying an informant was different than a spy. 

20180525_173324.jpg

Another great point about the whole informant argument is the fact this informant was placed long before the infamous Steele dossier was obtained for the FISA warrant. One would think that in order to place a spy within the campaign, there would be an existing warrant someplace for the informant to be placed. Spygate, as dizzying as the media spins are, is one of the biggest scandals in American history. What is more disturbing, is the media actually justifying the spying scandal as a good thing.  

Spygate is not the ONLY spying that Obama has done. It is reported that Obama has spied on AP reporters and even foreign officials. 

Why did the Obama administration spy on the Associated Press?

In the end, I think that while Spygate is one of the biggest scandals we have seen in American history, the depths of Obama's spying is probably massive. Considering he was in office 8 years, who knows how many other people were spied on, or how many other elections in foreign countries were affected by Obama's administration meddling. We have only begun to scratch the surface of Obama's crime spree of a presidency.

Trump Saves Thousands of American Jobs by Revising ZTE Deal

 ZTE ban gets a second look, then reversal from Pres. Trump

ZTE ban gets a second look, then reversal from Pres. Trump

President Trump confirmed the new guidelines for the ZTE deal criticizing New York Senator Chuck Schumer as well as the previous Obama administration in a tweet Friday evening, for their deal with ZTE.

"Senator Schumer and Obama Administration let phone company ZTE flourish with no security checks," he wrote. "I closed it down then let it reopen with high level security guarantees, change of management and board, must purchase U.S. parts and pay a $1.3 Billion fine. Dems do nothing but complain and obstruct. They made only bad deals (Iran) and their so-called Trade Deals are the laughing stock of the world!"

President Trump wants to maintain leverage with China and has decided to reverse his decision on the ZTE ban, but has outlined new strict guidelines:

* $1.3 Billion fine for violating sanctions with Iran and North Korea

* New Security Rules

* American Compliance Officers

* New Board of Directors

In mid-April 2018 The Department of Commerce announced it was placing a ban on Chinese multinational telecommunications company ZTE including forbidding US companies from supplying equipment and service contracts for seven years.

ZTE is based out of Shenzhen, Guangdong, China and is the fourth largest smartphone maker in the world. ZTE relies on US companies to provide more than a quarter of the components used in ZTE telecom equipment.  

The ban was a result of ZTE violating sanctions with Iran and North Korea and lying to the department’s Bureau of Industry and Security. Not only that, but instead of disciplining ZTE executives they were actually given bonuses for their illegal conduct.

So why would Trump all of a sudden want to turn around and grant concessions to ZTE when it had proven to be a bad actor? Not only did this seem to be a direct request from Chinese President Xi Jinping, but American companies--such as Qualcomm and Acacia--had reached out stressing that this would put a huge strain on their companies, since so many of ZTE’s parts come from the US. China spent $2.34 billion on parts and equipment manufactured in the US last year alone.   

In directing the Commerce Department to re-examine ZTE’s penalty, President Trump encountered an intense pushback from lawmakers as well as some of Trump’s national security advisers.

In a statement on Friday Senator Chuck Schumer of New York said,

"If the administration goes through with the reported deal, President Trump would be helping make China great again. Simply a fine and changing board members would not protect America’s economic or national security, and would be a huge victory for President Xi, and a dramatic retreat by President Trump." Schumer continued, "Both parties in Congress should come together to stop this deal in its tracks."

The usual suspects are driving home the idea that this revision is only beneficial to China, but the fact is ZTE relies on purchasing parts from American companies to stay in business.

"Yes they have a deal in mind," Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican tweeted on Friday. "It is a great deal...for #ZTE & China." "Now congress will need to act," he added.

Nancy Pelosi even responded to the reversal in a tweet directed at President Trump saying, "@realDonaldTrump’s ZTE deal is a staggering betrayal of the American people."

Defense officials have stressed their concerns about the communist Chinese telecom company and its security risks of spying, hacking and overall interference using the technology.

Thursday, The Senate released a defense policy bill containing a provision requiring Trump, before making any ZTE deal, to certify with Congress that ZTE hasn’t violated U.S. law for the past year and that it is cooperating with all U.S. investigations.

The House passed its own defense policy bill banning the Pentagon from purchasing any ZTE technology. The Pentagon had already stopped the sale of phones made by Chinese competitor, Huawei, in all stores on American military bases around the world in early May, for the same security concerns--fearing espionage or other intellectual property theft. Huawei is substantially larger than ZTE and critical to China’s industrial policy plans.

According to the NYT, President Trump acknowledges that China is using North Korea as leverage stating, "President Xi could be influencing Kim Jong-un," adding "If you remember a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, Kim Jong-un went to China to say hello again a second time to President Xi."

Chief editor of Global Times, (which is owned by the Chinese Communist Party), Hu Xijin stated on social media site Weibo, "No matter if the previous sanction was a card in Washington’s concerted move for a trade war on China, the newest decision is a good one."

Trump expressed his concerns for American businesses in a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In earlier this week stating, "By shutting them down, we’re hurting a lot of American companies. Really good American companies."

Seaman's Deck: Bitcoin Thoughts, Will Trump Sweep Midterms, & More

Bitcoin has dropped down to US $7,407.10 per coin, in part due to news Bitcoin "price manipulation" is now under US investigation. Way to go, Jeff Sessions! First the good Attorney General focused his Justice Dept energies on literally indicting a canned tuna fish company for possible price rigging. Now, his department is honing in on Bitcoin prices. Big Tuna and Millennials Who've Done Alright From Bitcoin—the two great scourges of the West, and Sessions is tackling them both with profound passion.

Of course, back in reality, destroying the paper profit margins of every millennial on the Internet who holds Bitcoin (60 to 80 million people are believed to use Bitcoin), while continuing a regressive federal marijuana policy-set that is now behind that of both Canada and Mexico (!!!), all while keeping the spiritcooking Podestas and completely criminal Clintons free... in reality-land, a place we hear so much about in the District, hardworking "folks"—whoever those folks actually are, in reality-land—may take offense to an Attorney General focusing on canned tuna fish pricing and libertarian-leaning 24/7 Internet currencies, while granting some of the most despicable people to have ever surfaced from a WikiLeaks dump what appears to be total freedom in their nascent retirement years.

John Podesta is completely free, and even enjoyed a History Channel appearance recently. He also writes for the Washington Post as a contributor. For reference's sake, here's what his emails appear to have been referencing.

The Clintons, serial rapists and white collar criminals at a minimum, are completely free as well. The Clinton family was at a special "event" last night in New York City, paid event of course.

Meanwhile, Sessions focuses on the tuna fish and the Federal Reserve competing cryptocurrencies doing well.

That's not gonna sit well with an increasingly independent-minded, liberty mindset base. What is Pres. Trump thinking? Even as a diehard supporter, my growing distaste for Sessions—a man who seems to singularly personify the deepstate's callous indifference and perpetual lost sense of priorities—can't help but become attached to Trump's brand, tarnishing it. Why did Trump hire that loser? Why did he keep him for so long? And why does it seem impossible for Trump to extricate himself from the Sessions/Rosenstein spiderweb... Is Trump caught in the spiderweb? Does he just not care? Because at a certain point, from a mathematics perspective, the continued non-performance of Sessions and the DOJ is going to wear big time on Trump's ability to get anyone moderate to vote Republican in time for midterms.

The other side is admittedly terrible and disorganized, disheveled and lost. The sane people, if there were any, have long since left the Democratic Party building—leaving behind a thinned out and more zealous than ever herd of Clinton-era has beens. They're born losers, essentially, the wrong people at the wrong time—Swamp cut-outs desperate for another easy evil stretch like the Clinton 1990s, but they're just too old and Internet incompetent to hack it. That's the truth.

They've got the swagger, but they're old, and the numbers aren't there. The Democratic Party is the party of Soros and weird spiritcookers and Hollywood millionaires. It's no longer the party of the working class and the aspiring upper-middle classes, if it ever was, but I mean that today it is not even perceived as a working class party.

The Democratic Party has the marketing muscle of Tide laundry detergent, yet packs the stainfighting punch of a bottle of spring water. That's their problem: money, and media pipelines, but no soul and no sincerity and we see through it. They're spending big to promote milquetoast out of date SJW outrage culture.

Meanwhile, MAGA is putting money in the working classes' pockets again, and dignity. Rarely a week goes by without the President remarking publicly on the tenacity of our nation's coal miners, or the strength of the country's steel industry, or the persistent glory of the law enforcement community.

The Democrats are screwed. Yet, there's cause for concern.

Many moderates gave Trump a chance, and if they don't show up in full fleet numbers for midterms, the zealous wealthy Dems will get plenty of low information SJW-driven voters to lumber out to the polls and cast their votes for the existing crop of Democratic rot.

A stalemate for Trump is a loss, remember. He needs a packed pro-Trump House and neutralized or pro-Trump Senate to push his agenda effectively. To be sure, Sessions is Trump's problem, not the American people's, and patience from moderates for a DOJ that appears inconsistent and glacial is waning. That's just reality. Sessions' job performance is not enough to get moderates off the couch, while the other side can count on their low information horde.

The Storm Is Here

Last Friday, Trump began a tweetstorm regarding the news that a spy may have been embedded in his campaign. He emphasized that if true, it would be the biggest political scandal of all time. 

Trump: FBI embedding spy in 2016 campaign would be 'all time biggest political scandal' if true

Then, on Sunday, he rocked Twitter with his announcement that he would open an investigation into the scandal surrounding the embedded spy, and whether or not it was for political purposes.. 

20180522_094929.jpg

Trump's tweet prompted responses from John Brennan and Dianne Feinstein, who suspiciously seemed defensive. Brennan went as far to subtly threaten McConnell and Speaker Ryan. Brennan is interestingly vocal whenever Trump tweets about abuses that occurred under the Obama administration. 

20180522_101332.jpg

Dianne Feinstein tweeted that it is "disturbing" and shows contempt for the law to order the Justice Department to investigate abuses. 

HOW IRONIC. Isn't that exactly what the Obama administration did under the DOJ? 

20180522_101345.jpg

Trump, ahead of his Monday schedule, started off early morning a new barrage of tweets, aimed at John Brennan, stating he was panicking about the investigation. 

20180522_101307.jpg
20180522_101254.jpg
20180522_101242.jpg

Eric Bolling also pointed out a key element of the whole spying scandal which rests on one basic truth. Any spying would have had an existing FISA warrant in order to be legal. If the only known FISA warrant was based on the Steele dossier, MONTHS after the spy was embedded into the Trump campaign, it would be surmised that it is constitutionally illegal. 

20180522_101621.jpg

While the spying scandal is only one small element in the scale of abuses that occurred under the former Obama administration, it seems an uphill battle as beleaguered Jeff Sessions is nowhere to be seen. One really has to question what FBI director Wray, or even Sessions are doing. Considering the amount of people involved, firing McCabe and Comey, has been so far the only steps taken. But, when do people start going to jail? Americans are frustrated and impatient waiting for the scales of justice to tip. As this week's tweetstorm indicates, only time will tell.

President Trump Angry Podesta Not Yet Charged Or Arrested

In a tweet Sunday morning, President Trump wondered in tweetform: "why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?"

This is precisely in line with what FULCRUM has been reporting from Washington: the swamp isn't yet drained, no one appears willing to take on the Clintons and Podestas with indictments/arrests as the entire world knows is necessary, and "QANON" is relaying a parallel reality that is not actually occurring—the Podestas, Soros, Clintons aren't even under indictment yet.

It looks like Hillary is on global vacation, because she's really on global vacation. For whatever reason, Sessions is not doing the job he was hired for, and the Justice system is in rigged disarray.

Bigger Than Watergate

Last March, when Trump sent shockwaves through Twitter-verse with his bold statement of being wiretapped, the internet exploded. Media went haywire, working overtime to debunk Trump's tweet as him being a nutjob for even believing it to be true. 

20180517_081843.jpg

Known leaker Comey himself, even requested that the justice department deny those claims.

Comey Asks Justice Dept. to Reject Trump’s Wiretapping Claim

New York Times also weighed in on the claims, dismissing them as unsubstantiated. 

Trump Digs In on Wiretap, No Matter Who Says Differently

Let's fast forward to May, 2018.

Recent revelations suggest otherwise that Trump's tweet is factually correct, as Clapper admitted that there was an informant within the campaign, then justified it as a "good thing." Let it also be a reminder, that Obama's former Intelligence chief, now works for CNN. The same guy who was suspected leaker behind the infamous Steele dossier. 

NOTHING TO SEE HERE. 

Clapper: It’s ‘A Good Thing’ FBI Was Spying On Trump Campaign

20180519_132231.jpg

NYT also verified the validity of statements while attempting to gaslight the public with deceptive phrasing, downplaying it to an "informant", not spying. Sheer absurdity, at this point. 

F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims

Then, Washington Post takes it a spin further, saying it was to "protect" Trump. Never mind, at this point, the Steele Dossier was not circulated in existence yet. 

PROTECT WHAT?? 

Perspective | The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him.

If anything is obvious by this point, it is the laughable claim of journalistic integrity. The bias of journalists such as those at New York Times, lean heavily towards protecting the former Obama Administration. The left-wing media no longer operates on journalism, but sheer will, to protect criminals who operated on large-scale corruption. NYT's recent articles even go so far to actually attempt to justify the spying. Make no mistake, had Trump done the same thing, media would not be justifying the behavior, but actively seeking impeachment.  

Trump's suggestion that it's bigger than Watergate, is an understatement. The scale of such a political operation easily supersedes that of any administration in history. Nixon's 18 minutes of tape erased is nothing compared to the scale of interference to actively prevent the election of Donald Trump.

Founder's Thoughts: QANON, What Comes After MSM, & Trump vs. Deepstate DC

The heat our organization has taken regarding our views on QANON, which are District-sourced fact, should not distract from other pressing issues. If we don't cover these topics accurately, who will?

Parkland woke many up to the extent of the mainstream media (MSM) coordination in dishonesty across personalities and networks -- why were only 2 students out of nearly 3,000 students at the school getting all the air time, confused television viewers wondered. Focusing on 2 witnesses out of a possible vocal pool of 3,000, isn't even bias. It's fucking journalistic malpractice.

For those who weren't paying attention at all, or for those who wanted to buy in to the false MSM narrative one last time for convenience's sake, another shockwave came just the other day:

The President of the United States, during a televised and unedited conference, said he regarded MS-13 members as "animals." The organized transnational crime ring, largely consisting of Mexican nationals interested in the occult, is responsible for a growing network of underage sex-trafficked girls, some of whom are brutally beaten and murdered if they fail to meet profit quotas or otherwise annoy their captors. The ring also profits from opioid pushing and heroin sales, which are destroying an American generation.

The threat this organized crime ring poses to the livelihood and safety of everyday Americans across our country is literally unprecedented, yet the MSM took President Trump's clear words against the crime ring and intentionally spun them, to serve a dwindling and sad leftist agenda.

He called illegal immigrants animals, they blasted across the airwaves, in clear violation of the truth of the President's own words.

Evil.

What else do you call that? The MSM still reaches millions, and they could use that platform to rally around the President's efforts to eradicate MS-13. They could provide tiplines to call into, other ways to help, etc. Instead, they used it as yet another opportunity to sow division and hatred. And in the wake of today's deadly shooting at Trump Doral resort, by an eccentric who shouted anti-Trump jingoisms he got from MSM (it is believed), it's clear that what MSM tells millions at night on the tube has an impact on public discourse, and opinion, even during waking hours.

Part of why I've been singularly against the QANON phenomenon is that it amounts to shouting "no fire, stay calm, stay in your seats!" when there is, in fact, a theatre fire. That's not compassionate. It's sinister.

The public, in a daze from newfound economic prosperity and Internet riddlers, has not been kept well apprised of the overall continuing culture of corruption in government and media, at all levels. Chaos, rather than a meticulous 'whitehat'-led cleanup, may be ahead for US politics.

This morning's angry tweets from President Trump underscore that troubling reality. "Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. If true - all time biggest political scandal!," the President wrote in one of the tweets.

A corrupted federal law enforcement agency, possibly assisted by other federal agencies, embedded operatives in a Presidential candidate's campaign - and had a material interest in the candidate's opponent winning the election. That would, indeed, be the biggest political scandal in modern US history, as well as one of the biggest scandals in Western democratic history.

The "deepstate" believed it knew better, and that the American people's national election choice should not be carried out, if it were to happen. And it did happen. That's unprecedented, and unforgivable.

Crossfire Hurricane: A Political Storm

A year ago, shortly after Trump had begun his first term, he dropped allegations of being wiretapped on Twitter. The tweet sent the media ablaze in a determination to debunk his claim,  by shrugging it off as a false statement.

Department Of Justice Says It Has No Evidence Obama Ordered Wiretap Of Trump Tower

However, as each IG report comes out, more and more corruption becomes uncovered. There is no mistake that the FBI under Obama became politicized as people like Comey leaked to news publications. The upcoming IG report focuses on Comey's role in handling Clinton's email investigation.  

Justice Dept. inspector general finishes draft of report on Clinton email case

Meanwhile, NYT prints out an article that suspiciously seems to be downplaying the role the FBI played leading up to Elections 2016. 

Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation

One of the most important aspects of the article is the outright admission that the FBI dispatched agents to London in a covert operation called "Crossfire Hurricane". The most interesting detail of it all is that it was never revealed before. As it stood, the infamous Steele dossier had been the basis of the whole Russia investigation. This completely contradicts much of what Comey and others have testified in front of Congress about. Buried way down in the piece, is the fact that the Steele dossier was not a part of the whole investigation until late September. This puts holes into the investigation and then claims it was not political. While Peter Strzok was part of the covert London operation, he was also investigating Clinton emails at the same time. How can anyone not question conflicts of interest? 

Another interesting find within the article was a direct admission that key players within the Trump campaign were in fact, surveilled. "The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena". This seems to lead credence to Trump's original claim last March, that he was being wiretapped, during the Election. Trump tweeted about the recent finds, in a tweet storm earlier today.

Trump again called it worse than Watergate, as previously stated in his earlier tweets last March. 

Operation Crossfire, if anything, seems to be an ironic twist on the entire Obama era FBI administration. Comey himself has put himself into direct crossfire as the upcoming IG report seems to indicate. It is becoming increasingly clear that the embattled FBI was in fact, abused by the former Obama administration. Operation Crossfire may very well be the storm that blows the roof off the FBI.

Schneiderman's Demise

Eric Schneiderman, who resigned just hours after 4 women accused him of abuse, seems to have a long history with Trump. Whether you love or hate Trump, looking at his past tweets, it is comedic gold, to be honest. Trump has tweeted several times about AG Schneiderman, even back as far as 2013. It seems to have begun when Trump found out Schneiderman was suing him, after a meeting with Obama. The first tweet hints that Trump was given some very interesting information. 

20180514_085300.jpg
20180514_085247.jpg

What follows after, is just pure gold. If you didn't find it funny, maybe you just have no humor.  The first seems to foretell the future, 5 years later, to Schniederman's recent demise and resignation. 

20180514_085313.jpg

Then, in a twist, Trump tweets about his eyeliner, seemingly quoting Cuomo's statements regarding Schneiderman. To be honest, this cracked me up big time. 

20180514_085209.jpg
20180514_103830.jpg

Then, in a June 14th tweet, Trump questions what brand eyeliner Schneiderman was wearing.

20180514_085223.jpg

Later that year in October, Trump again brought up eyeliner. This one is probably my favorite tweet regarding the whole debacle.  

Trump's past tweets are a goldmine of information that seems to age very well as President. Already, AG Schneiderman's own resignation is quickly out of the news cycle. However, if Trump's tweets are any indication, his story is just beginning to trickle out to the public. Schneiderman's demise is nothing short of over.

One Tree Hillary

November 8, 2016, Donald Trump became the President of the United States of America. That same evening Hillary Clinton refused to step out on stage, as per tradition, to give a concession speech in front of her dumbfounded worshipers. Tears were shed on both sides, it was a heavy moment for all. The world continued to turn.

It is now May of 2018. The economy is up, North Korea are surrendering their nukes and U.S. hostages, ISIS (sister of the Anti-Christ Osiris) is on the run. So too, it looks, is Hillary Clinton. Writing a book is a sure way to rake in some speaking fees and stay out of the US, now that Goldman Sachs doesn’t have time for you. Sure, it has to be collected from the peon masses, some of whom you’ll have to touch and mingle with but you gotta do what you gotta do.
There is always money to be made when you’re a Clinton - an abundance mindset.

Published in September of only last year the book is doing exceptionally well on Amazon in terms of reviews.

Much better than her husband’s book on his entire legacy.

Though nowhere near the success of a book on them both.

Stronger Together you could say.

On a brisk Monday in Auckland, New Zealand, May 7, Hillary Clinton spoke at an arena to those willing to pay US$155 for general admission and up to a premium US$390 package for a pre-talk private cocktail event - one which Hillary did not attend. See, as featured on InfoWars, CSTT footage of the event. What I assume a majority of those in attendance didn’t know was that Hillary’s 2nd failed presidential campaign was in part financed, NZ$7.7 million, by the New Zealand taxpayer.

She could of saved the nation of New Zealand the trouble and simply asked millionaire playboy Kim Dotcom for the money. He likes to spend his wealth on cars, planes and everything you could think of throwing away money on if you had an endless supply. Why not throw some to Hillary too?

Oh…

What’s this bibble babble you mentioned earlier about Osiris and Isis?
Oh that…yeah, well, these elites believe in all this anti-christ occult mumbo jumbo, as documented by David Seaman of FULCRUM News over the past two years. I’m not just speculating. “The Cremation of Care” ceremony at Bohemian Grove for one, (say that phrase to yourself and break it down. Language is important) is but a goofy summer camp once a year for the CFR and Bilderberg types. Hillary speaks with and to the Council on Foregin Relations. It is clear about where her allegiances lie.

On her trip to New Zealand, of all the sights and places she could visit, where does she go and what does that represent?

There are no stools on One Tree Hill. Why not visit Hobbit Town, the national museum or one of 100s of other sights Auckland city had to offer?

For some Masonic enterprises, an original Egyptian benben was not good enough. Since 1848 an obelisk had been going up in Washington, DC, to honour America's founding President, George Washington, who had been a Freemason. His funeral in 1799 had been conducted according to Masonic rites. The coffin had been draped with a Masonic apron given by a brother revolutionary and Mason, the Marquis de Lafayette, and the many Masons present each cast a sprig of acacia, to symbolize both Osiris's resurrection and Washington's own imminent resurrection in the realm where Osiris presides.”[14.]
- Inside the Brotherhood, Martin Short

Is Hillary hoping to resurrect Osiris and herself from the dead? Is this a stretch folks? You decide.

In 2018/19, the tax payers of New Zealand will be handing over another NZ $5.5 million to ex-Secretary of State, failed Presidential Candidate and sister of the anti-christ Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In this age of appropriation and bastardizations, and when you take into account Hillary’s handiwork around the globe, it wouldn’t be out of step with the times to label Hillary The face that launched a thousand ships…would it?
