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.

2017 - The Year that Washington DC Self-Destructs in Cannibalistic Infighting

       When a political system becomes corrupt to the core as Washington has over the past two decades, it's only a matter of time before it implodes.  The pervasive crime and corruption among the entire political establishment has resulted in a dog-eat-dog mentality that attempts to convict and imprison opposing camps before they convict and imprison you first.  The result is a sordid mess of extreme political infighting and legal wrangling that not only threatens to destroy the Trump presidency before his first year in office is complete, but threatens to put hundreds of politicians and their staff in prison for life.  The corruption and infighting has become that bad.
       But when Washington inevitably collapses into a kind of civil war involving the FBI and Special Prosecutors putting career politicians in jail for fraud, corruption, bribery, extortion, perjury, money laundering, treason, drug trafficking, child sex trafficking, and a litany of other crimes, what happens to the nation as a whole?  And what happens to the New World Order?  Can World War be avoided?

The most recent chapter in the saga started earlier this week with Trump lashing out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his ineffectiveness at stopping the intrusive probe by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller due to
his recusal back in February.  Sessions was effectively put on watch (with the announcement of his firing expected any day now).  Press Secretary Sean Spicer then quit, citing his disapproval of the new White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci.  Then, further leaks from White House staff resulted in Scaramucci going off on a profanity-laced rant in a phone call with a reporter, wherein he called Reince Priebus "a fucking paranoid schizophrenic" and Steve Bannon a "cocksucker".

The next day (July 28th), we learned that Priebus was fired.  He received the news via Tweet.  In another Tweet from Trump, we got this:  "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff."

The same day, Scaramucci's wife filed for divorce.  Zerohedge reported on July 28th that "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition..."  Scaramucci's turmoil coincided with another legislative defeat for Trump:  the defeat of the "Skinny" repeal of Obamacare.  The repeal effort was defeated in the Senate by just one vote - that of Senator John McCain, longtime rival of Trump.

Later that same day, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee accused Obama administration staffers of having filed "hundreds of unmasking requests" related to the sharing of classified intelligence information.  He stated for the record:  "We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. personal information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information..."

Then, to top things off, the House Judiciary Committee threw down the gauntlet, demanding a Special Counsel be appointed to investigate James Comey, Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton.  In a memo to the Justice Dept., they stated:  "We are writing to you to request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation’s justice system..."

Things only get stranger.  Hermitage Capital founder Bill Browder testified on Capitol Hill that "Fusion GPS" (the "Trump Dossier" creator) actually worked for the Russian government.  In open testimony before the committee, Senator Graham asked:  "So, I just want to absorb that for a moment. The group that did the dossier on President Trump hired this British spy, wound up getting it to the FBI. You believe they were working for the Russians?", to which Browder responded, "That's correct.  And in the Spring and Summer of 2016 they were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official."  The testimony turns the "Russian collusion" story on its head, for now we have the Russian government trying to harm the Trump team.

On July 29th, Trump again went on the offensive via Twitter, stating:  "The very outdated filibuster rule must go... Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don't go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time...Dems are laughing at R's. MAKE CHANGE!"  He also alluded to the testimony of Bill Browder, stating that the government of Russia was against him in 2016, not for him.

Confused yet?  Don't be.  The political infighting in Washington is only going to get worse in coming weeks and months.  The Establishment is imploding because the entire system is corrupt to the core, and everyone is trying to cover their ass by launching legal actions against perceived opponents.  Nearly everyone is corrupt and has "skeletons in the closet", and to avoid jail-time and destroyed careers, political cannibalism is now devouring the entire system.  And we haven't seen anything yet.

The Democratic Party is embroiled in their own scandals, barely able to keep a lid on the ever-growing saga of the Awan Brothers, Congressional break-ins and hacking, and elite pedophile blackmail "brownstone" operations.  The same week that saw the Trump administration seemingly imploding from within is the same week Imran Awan got arrested at Dulles Airport.  Former DNC-chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is shitting her pants right now, knowing she is next.  Then will come Hillary, and the entire charade will come crashing down.  Everyone has been compromised.  Everyone has committed multiple felony charges on a continual and systemic basis going back decades.  All sides in the Washington DC corruption scandals are caving in under the weight of their own egregious crimes.  It's only a matter of time before the whole thing blows.  I give it less than 100 days.

It has become painfully obvious that the Deep State and international banking elites are colluding to bring down the Trump administration AND to "control-demolition" the international financial system. Tens of trillions of dollars and other currencies are going to be wiped out in the Crash of All Crashes.  It will all be blamed on Donald Trump and "Russia", with sideshows like Iran and North Korea to boot.  Can world war be avoided?  What about the angry mobs, numbering in the hundreds of billions, who have their life savings wiped out?  How will the elite bankers themselves react when their own stashes of digital wealth go "poof" in the night?  Is the fate of humanity waiting in the wings over the next 100 days and beyond?

Friends and critics alike will claim this is all "chicken-little" fear-mongering, that this all amounts to more "sky is falling!" pronouncements when, in fact, the world keeps slithering on and equilibrium is always found to calm down the raging storms on the horizon.  But could this time be different?  Should we prepare for the worst?  Is the world order as we have come to know it about to collapse in a free-for-all of self-interest that sees wounded actors and players on the world stage act out in ways that cause mass suffering?  Could nuclear war be the final outcome, and the obliteration of civilization?

     It's a distinct possibility - especially when the accumulated wealth of the world evaporates on the computer screens of banks around the world.  Few people realize the extent to which we're playing with fire here - a fire lit long ago when arch-conspirators decided to take America down the road of crime and corruption rather than Truth and Justice.  Restoring the growth of positive forces in our world may take what firefighters have long known:  a controlled burn is often the best remedy for a forest ripe for fire.  That may be exactly the situation we face now.  Whether we can control the flames before they engulf us all is the question.
