In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell


Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

The Truth About Trump's Treachery

     Forget the Wall.  Forget the six-nation Muslim travel ban.  And forget the repeal of Obamacare.  These are all promises being kept by President Trump, even if they don't match the specifics uttered during the campaign.  (The Wall is not being paid for by Mexico; Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and a host of other terror-supporting nations are not part of the travel ban; and Trumpcare involves all the same pitfalls as Obamacare, only worse.)  And forget the notion that Trump has secret ties to the Russians - even the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes came out on Fox News Sunday (on March 19th) to flatly dismiss this claim.  No, contrary to the Deep State-promoted myth that Donald Trump is some kind of stooge for the Kremlin, the real treachery of the Trump administration involves the abandon- ment of the much bigger promise to "drain the swamp" in Washington, and dismantle the Deep State apparatus that has turned the American Government into Death & Destruction Incorporated.

As suggested by Trump all along, the allegations of collusion with the Russians were just the ramblings of sore losers, desperate for someone or something to blame for the devastating and unexpected defeat of Deep State favourite Hillary Clinton on November 8th.  The Russians have always been the preferred boogie man and punching bag, dating back more than 70 years to the early days of the Cold War.  The anti-Russian rhetoric has been stepped up considerably in recent years, not just out of frustration over the failed strategy of pulling Ukraine out of the Russian sphere of influence and capturing the geostrategic military bases Russia has held in Crimea for centuries, but also due to Russian meddling in the Middle East, which have thwarted Anglo-American-Israeli efforts to topple yet another government (Syria's) and make it safe for exploitation.  Even more critical to Western interests, Russian President Vladimir Putin has succeeded in protecting the Russian economy from Western banking and military-industrial cabals, while promoting a multipolar world order that seeks an end to the petro-dollar racket and imperial hegemony of the United States.  As such, Russia serves a greater purpose as an enemy than as a friend. (For his stubborn independence and efforts to forge a more equitable distribution of power in the world, Vladimir Putin is demonized in the Western media.  But all talk of Russian "hacking" of the American election or collusion with Donald Trump are simply fake news, designed to delegitimize Donald Trump and ensure a continuation of the war stance with Russia.  This keeps the Pentagon and war industries happy.

The Deep State has good reasons to fear Trump.  As long-time Republican stalwart Newt Gingrich astutely observed during the campaign, nobody within Washington's establishment (in either party) likes him because he hasn't gone through the secret society rituals.  He's not blackmailable due to any recognizable "skeletons in the closet."  He answers to no one "higher", and whatever we want to say about his intelligence or worldliness, he at least thinks for himself - perhaps his most damning characteristic, according to established elites.

Any attempts to pin down Trump ideologically are fraught with difficulty, as he has flipflipped on a number of issues over the years, and has been shown to say completely whimsical, contradictory things from one day to the next.  CNN Tonight network host Fareed Zakaria proclaimed magnanimously on March 17th that President Donald Trump has succeeded only by "bullshitting." “I think the president is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false. He has spent his whole life bullshitting. He has succeeded by bullshitting. He has gotten the presidency by bullshitting. It’s very hard to tell somebody at that point that bullshit doesn’t work because look at results."  Point taken.  We can never take anything the man says at his word, but then again, neither can we do the same with CNN.  We have to sort out the truth for ourselves.

The recent rumpus over Trump's allegations of Obama-ordered wiretapping of Trump Tower is a case in point.  As political commentator Howard Kunstler (kunstler.com) astutely observed, the Wikileaks “Vault 7” document release "made it clear that US intel has the ability to cover and confuse the tracks of any entity —including especially US intel itself — that ventures to penetrate any supposedly private or secure realm."  So even without direct evidence, Trump's "bullshit" turns out to be true.  Continued spying on Trump and leaking of sensitive phone calls only confirms the fact that Trump has a lot more enemies embedded in the hundreds-of-thousands-strong federal government apparati than he realizes, and those enemies - guided by Obama, at the helm of a shadow government - are dedicated to destroying his presidency.  A moderate effort has been made by Trump to root out the pro-Obama/Clinton operatives in the Deep State by firing everyone on the "7th Floor" of the State Department, but we should be doubtful that the cancer has been carved out.  The tentacles of the Deep State stretch far and wide, and they have good reasons to fear The Donald.

If the Podesta emails released en masse by Wikileaks in the weeks prior to the election teach us anything, it is that the Deep State and the pro-Obama/Clinton operatives within it are corrupt to the core, eyeball-high in crimes of the highest magnitude.  Thanks to the excellent journalism of people like Robert David Steele, Joe Rogan, David Zublick, David Seaman, George Webb, Sean (at thephaser.com), and others, the 'pizzagate' scandal has been blown wide open, demonstrating without a shred of doubt that Washington is a cesspit of pedophilia and blackmail.  Sex trafficking, especially involving children, exploded under Obama's tenure, and the Deep State has grown rigid defenses to protect the guilty from prosecution.  Upwards of 30% of the members of Congress have been compromised by "brownstone" operations - meaning they are controllable due to their having been secretly videotaped while engaging in sexual improprieties, mostly involving children.  A smaller number face life in prison - or even the death penalty - for their direct involvement in "snuff films" involving children.  Comet Pingpong Pizza (after which the scandal has been named) is just one of a number of DC locations where children could be ordered from the menu - not for fun, but for consumption.

The Clintons stand at the apex of this evil scourge, and are currently engaged in desperate damage-control mode to cover their tracks.  The stakes could not be higher.  General Flynn was ousted from his post as National Security Advisor in the Trump administration not because of the petty transgression of phoning the Russian ambassador during the transition (which he neglected to mention during his confirmation hearings), but because of his outspoken views about going after the purveyors of the DC pedophile rings.  The same effort to oust Trump officials cognizant of the sex trafficking rings occurred with the new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who has similarly expressed a desire to go after the networks.  Sessions barely survived the witch hunt against him, and we have yet to see whether the recent spate of arrests across the country will expand to Washington itself.

We shouldn't hold our breath.  Trump's pick for Treasury Secretary is Alex Acosta, a sex-crime cover-upper if there ever was one.  As former attorney for the souther district of Florida, Acosta's office was involved in the controversial prosecution of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2008, wherein he facilitated a "sweetheart plea deal" for Epstein that let him get off with minimal jail time even though he had engaged in sex with dozens of underage girls on his "orgy island".  More damning still, billionaire and Trump ally Stephen Feinberg was made special national security advisor to the president, tasked with leading a review of the US intelligence agencies and their allegiance to the new team in the Whitehouse.  Feinberg is CEO of Cerberus Capital, which owns DynCorp - one of the most sinister corporations on the planet.  DynCorp not only trains assassins, covert operatives and military police forces worldwide, it has been repeatedly implicated in international child and sex trafficking rings dating back more than 25 years.

Trump seems to be aware of the extent of the deep and sinister corruption now plaguing Washington, as he has alluded to it in his off-the-cuff manner a number of times.  But he has surrounded himself with a mixed bag of cabinet members, most of whom appear to have the protection of the Deep State apparatus held as a higher priority than "going after bad guys."  "Draining the swamp" makes for good campaign slogans, but is unlikely to get much support inside the Beltway.  Washington has gone beyond having just a "few bad apples".  The whole basket is rotten.

Prudent when it comes to maintaining power as an outsider to the Establishment and with so many forces allied against him, President Trump has opted to surround himself with a plethora of establishmentarians.  Not only is there present in his administration a number of sex-trafficking cover-uppers, but a host of former high-level Goldman Sachs employees, none of whom want to "rock the boat".  Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, for example, presided over the subprime mortgage scandal in 2008 while at Goldman, helping ensure that no bankers went to prison even though trillions were stolen from government coffers as part of the "too big to fail" banker bail-outs.  Numerous other Goldman Sachs employees populate the new administration, making sure it's "business as usual" for the corporate raping of America and the world.  No, we shouldn't expect a "draining of the swamp" or a return of government "to the people", as Trump has repeatedly promised, up to and including his inauguration speech.  Instead, the treachery we are used to see flowing from Washington continues unabated.

We should not be surprised.  We have been down this road before.  Politicians regularly lie and tell the masses what they want to hear in order to get elected, and promptly do the things that solidify their power and benefit the fellow members of their class - in Trump's case, the billionaires.  The Pentagon is being given a 10% increase to its already bloated budget, while education, social security and environmental protection are being gutted.  Refugees from countries devasted by America's wars of aggression are being turned away, while Muslims from terrorist-financing countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are able to travel to and from the US as always.  A wall will surely be built to keep out Mexicans, but at the expense of Americans.  Obamacare, the horrible system that it was, is being dismantled, but is being replaced with something even more horrific. And on top of it all, the economy is about to collapse because the same banksters and politicians that have run up the national debt to $20 trillion can't get the addiction to spending under control.  All the talk of fixing the economy and bringing jobs home will prove to be just another pile of broken promises by a sheister charlatan who has duped the American people yet again.   Americans - or at least those who voted for Trump - should be chastised for having once again fallen for the bait.  Until a popular revolution burns down the Whitehouse altogether, treachery is all that Americans are ever going to get.
