1. Christian pastor forced under subpoena to testify on “his views on Islam”.

The United State Department of Justice has issued subpoenas to force a Christian pastor in Virginia to disclose under oath his views on Islam.

 

Pastor Steve Harrelson of the Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church in Boston, Virginia, has been served with a wide-ranging subpoena by lawyers for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. The subpoena demands his presence to testify under oath in response to questions from Justice Department lawyers about his views on Islam as well as several other issues:

Harrelson is not a party to any lawsuit or other action brought by the Justice Department. He is a private citizen. The Justice Department subpoena also demands that the pastor bring any papers or documents that he has to his deposition with government lawyers that relate to or mention Islam and turn them over to the government.

(It will take me some time to fathom the depths of the wrongness of this event.)

2. CIA sneaks nearly undetectable spyware onto Windows OS

“Windows machines are targeted by the CIA under ‘Angelfire,’ according to the latest release from WikiLeaks’ ‘Vault7’ series. The documents detail an implant that can allow Windows machines to create undetectable libraries.

‘Angelfire’ consists of five components – ‘Solartime,’‘Wolfcreek,’ ‘Keystone,’ ‘BadMFS,’ and the ‘Windows Transitory File system,’ according to a statement from WikiLeaks released on Thursday.

  1. From the second video clip (that interviews attorney Ty Clevenger): With respect to how prosecution of Hillary Clinton was, “not a matter of public interest”. So, what in the blue blazing, innermost circle of everlasting hell was Trump’s electoral victory an indicator of?!?

    That Hillary lost the presidential race was incontrovertible evidence as to obvious public concern about her putative commission of numerous and flagrant felonies.

    Furthermore, Equal Application of the Law dictates that legal prosecution of anyone, in any position of power or influence shall not be determined by popular opinion or through any sort of political beauty contest. At all times, Rule of Law must be as judicially blind as it is Constitutionally cognizant (a feature sorely lacking for several decades now).

    Regarding (per part III) Trump being held in durance vile as part of a Palace White House “coup”: The only thing that springs to mind—which might remotely explain such a grandiose scenario—is Globalist Brahmins reading out the riot act to DJT wherein he loses his entire personal fortune as a result of persisting to prosecute this off-the-reservation political agenda.

    I would suggest Arnold Schwarzenegger’s troubled governorship of California (the nation’s cereal box of fruits, nuts, and flakes) as a micro-model of this macro federal construct. Both Ahnult and Trump were political outsiders who made noticeable efforts to be relatively centrist.

    Their mutual reward? Near continuous opposition by respective governmental “deep state” apparatus—be it at the regional or federal level. Just the pre-election “Never Trump” political constituency made abundantly clear this aspect of incumbent and thoroughly entrenched power structures.

    What other explanations are there for Trump’s (supposed) “house arrest”?

    All that I can suggest is that Trump’s political naïveté has blinded him to the consequences of departures by capable advisors like Gorka and Michael Flynn. All of which is complicated by the presence of termites like soft-core Islamist, H.R. McMaster and many other 0bama holdovers (i.e., “deep state” residuum) whose names would take hours to catalogue.

    • I will agree with everything you said and will add that the Deep State had better watch out, the ordinary people are getting real mad, they elected DJT to reverse the sprint drift from a Constitutional Republic to that of a new feudal system run by left wing oligarchs. This election was the last stand for a peaceful return to a free US.

      • Thank you, Richard. The Deep State is rapidly digging its own grave.

        Maybe, one day, I will manage to squeeze out a tear about that.

        Despite their wealth, the 1% (especially left-wing globalists) will have the most to lose.

  2. Antifa should be allowed to demonstrate; however, only unarmed and with uncovered faces. If you cover your face or are armed, the police should assume that you are up to no good and arrest you on the spot. I dare say that would thin the crowd considerably.

  4. No we aren’t a free nation, not a Constitutional Republic! We haven’t reached the point where we are a full neo feudal nation ruled by Oligarchs but we are headed that way. The election of Trump was probably the last attempt at a legal peaceful return to our roots for individual freedom and the rule of law. We are moving towards a civil war and the pace we are moving at is increasing, this is happening to the backdrop of an Islamic invasion of Europe and to a lesser extent the US and Canada. We have China and their puppet Kim threatening nuclear war in the Far East. We have Iran about to take control of a large segment of the Middle East and they are close allies of North Korea/China which means they have nuclear weapons. If the various resistance groups in Europe think they have trouble now just wait until a nuclear armed Iran controls most of the middle east.
