    Websites or news outlets that are right of center are NOT ‘Alt-Right’. That term is a term of derision. Nothing in the law or in social norms requires you to use it.

    Conservative news outlets are characterized more accurately as ‘principled news’ adhering to common sense, truth, and logic.

    I think your point was meaning to say that the leftist media which is mostly corporate media, would pay no attention to a news report concerning Kessler if it were reported by principled news. Therefore, such a report coming from a favorite leftist advocacy group would not be as easy to ignore.

    He is financially independent. He made a ton of money in computers and IT. His father was one of the first cell phone inventors. George won’t take money for any of his investigations.

    George has a large number of pros behind him. He pools the data and presses forward to document everything. He is driven by the goal of exposing organized crime in the Deep State. He starts with the Patriot Act giving birth to the JTTF which was taken over by CIA retreads who used their spy culture to take over FBI HQ, hence ‘directing all their tactics against Americans’ as opposed to regimes and people abroad.

    The CIA developed their culture overseas in places where they needed to establish relationships with some really bad criminals in order to cultivate informants and spies. Often, to get control over an operative, the CIA would have the targeted person become involved in a criminal enterprise such as child trafficking, drugs, illegal weapons trade. The CIA or its operatives would then frame their targeted person into the criminal activity and tell that protection would be extended as long as the target was ‘compliant’.

    Often the CIA operatives were foreign nationals hired as contractors who knew local crime networks. CIA money would flow and the operatives would ‘develop’ other persons to be assets so as to expand the payroll.

    Once the Patriot Act was passed, and the JTTF formed, it evolved to CIA culture taking over allowing a lot of criminal tactics on American soil. Thus, Americans are viewed no differently than Morrocans or Sudanese. There are the JTTF command and control fusion centers on American soil that mimic similar centers established in foreign regions.

    Webb is exposing all of that. His videos are daily POLs meaning ‘Proof of Life’, proof that he is alive and not suicidal. He expects to take a bullet. He will not back down.

    He seems like a loner but he is not at all a loner. He has large numbers of people behind him, many who are law enforcement pros and members of the intel community.

    I get the point very well because I’ve been following. For those that haven’t been following, they would be smart to keep their eyes and ears open, and their mouths shut.

    George is orders of magnitude more intelligent than most anyone you will ever know. His point here is merely following all the points that preceded it.

    He is educating in detail, accurately and precisely, what is the real Deep State power, who are their main actors, and how to take down the Deep State criminal leadership, CNN, and others on a road to restoring the Constitution.

    Good Grief! Saw the headline just now and was thinking the exact same thing clicking open the thread.

    We should add ‘antifa’ to her list.

    Ivanka and her husband are not impressive intellects. They are definitely NOT in tune with America. But they the President’s children and our American history is marked by many children of Presidents who did not meet public approval because they did not rise to the expectations of their parents.

    So it’s no biggy in the bigger picture. In this case, Donald is in control.

  • Is changing the Constitution the only way to fix Washington?

    The delegates to the Constitutional Convention knew in advance there would be at least a major rewrite of the Articles of Confederation. The AOC were hastily put together while a war was being waged and those that drafted the AOC knew it was not the final say.

    The state legislators slotted to attend a convention of states are just as orderly and principled, actually more principled than the current lot that is in Congress today. The state delegates will never allow a free-for-all convention; not going to happen.

    The left has a lot to fear from a state convention. They are doomed. Americans are fed up with them. They have power in their urban ghettos but conservatives hold power in states. That’s the essence of republicanism and it scares the crap out o the left, deservedly so.

    > “ ... stoked by groups on the ***left*** and right ...”

    The Left has zero chance of passing any amendment. As of now, there are 12 blue states and 38 red states. To ratify an amendment to the Constitution requires 38 State legislatures.

    The following proposed structural constitutional amendment is favored to pass, and note that it is written so that no branch of federal government may have a say in how it is operated:

    ************************************************
    AMENDMENT XXVIII (’State Suffrage’)

    To restore effective suffrage of State Legislatures to Congress, the following amendment is proposed:

    ************************************************
    Section 1.
    Senators in Congress shall be subject to recall by their respective state legislature or by voter referendum in their respective state.

    Section 2.
    Term limits for Senators in Congress shall be set by vote in their respective state legislatures but in no case shall be set less than twelve years nor more than eighteen years.

    Section 3:
    The seventeenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

  • SCALIA ON 'A GRAND JURY BY US' (IT IS NOT ONLY FOR MUELLER OR COURTS TO MAKE)

    08/09/2017 5:47:44 PM PDT · 33 of 34
    Hostage to Lurking Libertarian

    No, I did not ignore that statement. I saw correctly that it is not as strong as the declarative statement that Scalia used to lay down the law for the lower courts.

    That statement you cling to is a weaker statement as it declares nothing, it is a description of what has evolved, not what must be adhered to.

    The lower courts had fallen into a practice where they would dictate to a grand jury what was and was not a valid indictment. Scalia set them straight.

    Scalia’s statement that I posted more than once and once directly to you is the weighty statement. Here it is again:

    “The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment.”

    That is a ***declarative*** statement, much stronger than the descriptive background status statement used to describe the way things evolved without regard to the Constitution.

    His usage of the phrases “requires no authorization ... nor require”; those phrases are not accidental. He is using the statement you cling to which begins with the qualifier “although” to draw attention that ‘although the way things are now, they evolved beyond what was meant so that now the view of a grand jury is not aligned with the Constitution. He goes on to say that the grand jury is in the Bill of Rights but not in the Articles, therefore not under the jurisdiction of any government branch, yet prosecutors and courts seem to think a grand jury cannot exist outside of their sphere.

    So again, and for the last time, grand juries are to find evidence of wrongdoing, to make indictments based on the evidence, not to determine guilt or innocence, and these activities can take place on their own without a court or prosecutor. If such a grand jury writes a report citing key evidence for an indictment of a person of interest, a prosecutor cannot ignore the indictment unless they too are in on it or derelict.

    The natural tendency of grand juries to cluster around courts and prosecutor offices is to take advantage of the subpoena power of courts. That power is quite useful and so it is not surprising that over time courts have come to think a grand jury is an appendage of the court.

    Yes, the other way around. Was in a hurry. The point remains, a grand jury need not be created by a prosecutor, or convened by a court. Organizers can file with a court to take advantage of the Court’s subpoena powers, and odds are there will be a federal court that will accommodate.

    A grand jury is not created to determine guilt or innocence, just evidence of wrongdoing, of probable cause. Judicial Watch could ask a Court for permission to impanel a grand jury. It need not be a prosecutor.

    Yeah, Scalia would have ruled FOR Williams had he seen plainly that grand juries were constitutional only under the judicial branch.

    Justice Scalia did NOT say it can’t be done. Otherwise, he would have ruled against Williams.

    Here’s what he wrote, repeating from post #9 above:

    “The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment.”

    That’s the Supreme Court’s ruling and there is no confusion in it. It does not need to be initiated by a court or a prosecutor.

    A group of concerned citizens can convene a grand jury and file a notice if they desire in court to allow the members of the grand jury to deliberate under its auspices, meaning that any of its findings and indictments are recorded under seal by the court.

    Now there will be with high probability at least one federal court that will accept a ‘Scalia Grand Jury’ to make its presentments to the court and to prosecutors. For example, Freepers taking a template by yours truly were able to get a matter before Governor Greg Abbott of Texas when he was the State AG and to provide him with the template to write a preliminary injunction against Barack Obama’s DAPA program that sought to evade Congress and amnestize millions of illegal aliens and where AG Abbott was able to find a suitable federal judge in Judge Hanen of the Southern District of Texas. So it can be done with a number of subject matter jurisdictions such as violations of 4th Amendment rights or stealing of property owned by the public (for example, destruction of government property in an off-site server containing official communications). There are dozens of subject matter jurisdiction items that can form a foundation for a grand jury.

    It is constitutional and cannot be barred. That was the whole point of US v. Williams referenced above. Prosecutors cannot refuse to act on its findings and indictments unless rights have been violated, and even then it is case by case, point by point, as Justice Scalia, so clearly described.

    It is very similar to a group calling the police to report a crime with witnesses standing ready to give their testimony. The police cannot refuse to take a report and to act on it.

    What Scalia was conveying in US v. Williams is that the courts have allowed over time for the grand jury to become ‘owned’ by government courts and prosecutors, while the people have forgotten that the grand jury is theirs. Scalia was reminding the nation in his decision that the courts and prosecutors have no title to grand juries, they are a property of any group that wishes to create and convene one, with a natural expectation that an independently formed grand jury will want to interact with a court and a prosecutor, hence they will seek and file for recognition on a case. It’s expected, but not necessary.

    Well, it look’s like I am being show wrong in my prediction that the syndicated national news would be successful in burying the Awan story.

    And I am so glad to be wrong.

    But it’s still too early to celebrate.

    Glad though to see Freepers pick up on the Rostenkowski parallel that I mentioned yesterday. Because this Congressional Credit Union slush fund scandal will be a huge broadside to the Deep State and will serve to keep it in the news whether CNN-NBC-MSNBC-CBS-ABC want it or not.
