  1. Ukraine and Endless War for Profit It looks like more idiocy for America is coming in order to benefit war profiteers (meaning a good part of the Deep State). But for people to understand what is happening, rather than post articles and so on, here is a super-short basic fundaments version. When the Soviet Union dismantled, instead of state-owned companies going to the people (as was propagandized), they went to former KGB people who are now called oligarchs. And how did the process happen, the nuts and bolts? Easy--and it all comes down to one word: Ukraine. All the monkey-business went on in Ukraine. That's why in all the political corruption happening nowadays, the word Ukraine keeps coming up. Lots of people went there to get rich with embezzled monies, including Biden & Co. (But let's not forget about Manafort & Co., and the Clinton folks, and a whole bunch of others. ) Now Biden is tanking in the polls and his butt is owned by oligarchs and others in Ukraine (especially from his son's corrupt ventures). So what better way to solve it all than a sudden war for profit? To make it look good, they have been antagonizing Russia to try to goad Putin into overreacting. Then they can send in American troops and look justified. What an idea! The war-profiteers and the entire Deep State jumps with joy. The predator class swoons in ecstasy. Maybe a war turns Biden's poll numbers around. At least he can get operatives into Ukraine and "solve" inconvenient issues where he is vulnerable during the chaos of war. There are other benefits, too. Meanwhile, young Americans will come home in body bags and everybody will say what patriots they are--as the predator class reaches for another glass of 30 year old scotch. Yeah, right. But this time people are looking and they are not liking what they see. As example, the only source I want to use for this opening post is a tweet that prompts a question. It's not even in the weeds about Ukraine. In case the tweet goes down, this is a tweet by Jack Posobiec. Text repeated below: We're watching, assholes. It ain't gonna be easy this time. Hopefully, it ain't gonna happen at all. Michael
  2. Rudy against Obama and the Deep State Introduction Rush Limbaugh said recently (several times) that the main reason people have not been indicted and jailed under the Attorney General Barr's investigations so far--including the part being run by John Durham--is that he is taking a shot at the whole damn machine. This means he does not want a fall guy. Nor does he want to run into the brick wall of corruption at the highest echelons of the Deep State. So President Trump is letting the investigations run in a manner where all the details are being locked down tight before actions start. In this fight, you only get one shot to unleash a big law enforcement raid. If the premises and investigations are not perfect, it will be shot full of holes, the entire case will disintegrate and those who took the shot will be persecuted in all manners possible. Think mob reprisals. (I embellished this a bit, like with the comment about mob reprisals, so this is not all Rush. ) Enter Rudy So what does this have to do with Rudy? When the impeachment by the House started to congeal, a branch of this approach fell right off into President Trump's lap. His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, stumbled across an enormous amount of corruption in the Ukraine that implicated the Bidens, the Obama administration and beyond. Rudy did not go to the Ukraine seeking this. Back when he started, Biden was not running in the primaries and Rudy never even thought he would. Rudy was seeking general information and there was a lot of heat by the Democrats with the Ukraine being repeatedly mentioned. So he looked into it. What he found took his breath away. It goes way beyond the Hunter Biden scandal with Burisma. Thus, Rudy did what Rudy does. He started compiling evidence, taping interviews, and so on. After all, Rudy took down some really nasty mob folks, so he has a lethal case-making system that works. In the last few months, there has been an enormous press campaign to taint Rudy as corrupt, as a Trump toady working to illegally help with Trump's 2020 election by digging up dirt on Biden, as stupid, and so on. Common Sense Rudy decided to make a podcast, called "Common Sense" (named in honor of Thomas Paine's book), where he could present evidence he has found that has been suppressed from the public eye by the fake news media, by politicians, and by establishment legal celebrities. This podcast started before the Senate acquittal of President Trump so the first video is a bit different that the rest. After that, Rudy decided to make a prosecutorial case to the public as if he were making a case to a court. He is starting with Joe Biden and Hunter Biden for bribery, extortion, and (probably) money laundering. Definitely corruption. But he is extending this to include lots of high-level people and he has announced that he will eventually get to the Obama Administration per se. I never realized what a great lawyer Rudy is. As this podcast is aimed at the general public, he uses simple language and explains things as he goes along (but citing laws and so on when relevant). By the time this stuff goes to court, the public will understand the issues despite all the foreign sounding names and criminal enterprise complexities. There are five episodes as of this posting, varying between a half an hour to an hour each. I saw the first podcast earlier today. I was so impressed, I stopped everything and watched all five of them back to back. Let's Witness History Together There is no doubt I am seeing major history unfold in real time, knowing this will be an event to mark this century. Rudy says this scandal will end up making the Teapot Dome scandal of the early 1920s look unimportant by comparison. I believe him. I have no doubt Rudy's series of videos will be included in Barr's investigations and will be studied in law classes at universities from the time the scandal subsides to forever. I am posting the first five videos below. I will be adding each new one as it comes out. I want you to see them as much as I want to see them. And I want us to see them as they happen. But first, here is Rudy's site: Rudy Giuliani. The Videos Now to the videos. I do hope you enjoy them with me. What a great time to be alive.

  3. The Ukraine Mess We keep seeing the Ukraine mentioned over and over these days in connection with political and financial scandal. One of the most recent cases is Hunter Biden getting oodles of cash from a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, as Joe Biden, while VP, shut down an investigation of Burisma, seeing that his son was on the Board and all. At stake was a cool billion from the US for the Ukraine. Here is Joe Biden bragging about it. Since Biden is currently running for the Democratic Party nomination for the presidency, any time you bring this up, you get swamped with trolls and people yelling and dissembling on all sides. President Trump is throwing gasoline on this fire, too, in his tweets and rallies. In fact, I believe the Justice Department's different investigations now underway are going to result in Biden convictions, but let's see what happens. Because of the panic this caused the bad guys, a phone call between President Trump and the new Ukrainian president, Voldymyr Zelenskiy, was the pretext for a fake whistleblower charge that is currently being used as the basis for a Democratic Party House impeachment inquiry against Trump that is not really an impeachment inquiry. But before we get too entangled, who knows anything about the Ukraine and why it is in such a mess? I certainly don't, and I've been trying to study this for a while. Finally, I ran across Amazing Polly once again. Below is her most recent video. Who knew that Canada and Soros were up to their necks in this mess going all the way back to the old days when the Soviet Union collapsed? As Polly says in the video, she is giving a partial picture, but at least in what she gives, she lays it all out--simply and well documented--in a manner anyone can understand. As this thread grows, I hope the Ukraine mess becomes clearer for everyone. In my own contributions, I will try to find things like Amazing Polly's video, or explain what I have discovered, with an equal level of simplicity and clarity. btw - To keep this issue tied to Ayn Rand, at least tangentially, I noticed a while back Official Objectivismdom was making inroads over there. I remember thinking at the time, Ukraine? Huh? Why just the Ukraine from that part of the world? Now my suspicious mind is getting on a roll all by itself. I wonder if all that backroom money being slung around all over the place had anything to do with it... Michael
