Does anyone else feel this way?  Or am I completely out to lunch here?  If that’s the case don’t be afraid to let me know. 

Yeeeees I agree with you, Bryan!

Her shows were hypnotic....there are such strong elements of audiences totally responding to her like puppets, I felt.

While I do believe there must be some people got helped by what Oprah was doing, and she certainly brought out the range of health and mental supportive tv shows such as Dr. Phil. (Dr. Phil had shown an episode of a Mind Control subject bravely, and the show got stopped since then, I take....so not all were bad, I want to think.)

All the shopping list stuff and spreeing the audience with hell a lot of presents and how the audience was going frenzy over it, madly cheering her.....it was scary to watch, yet it was somehow so hypnotic. She is a very skilled magician, methinks......

Exactly, Unity.  Hypnotic is a very apt description of her effect on some people. 

And you’re right about all the giveaways and ‘Oprah’s favourite things’ shows where people would lose their minds over all the ‘stuff’ she’d throw at them.  Sick  

She reminds me of a king or queen tossing coins and scraps to the poor so they worship her unquestioningly.

The DOJ and FBI Worked With Fusion GPS on “Operation Trump”….

Jan. 11, 2018     sundance

"Ever since the transcript of Fusion-GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee was released by Senator Dianne Feinstein, several inquisitive media outlets have begun questioning the relationship between the FBI investigators, Glenn Simpson and dossier author Christopher Steele.

What we have discovered not only highlights the answer to that question, but it also answers a host of other questions, including: Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele?  Yes, but now how media thinks. Was the FBI connected to the creation of the Steele Dossier? Yes, but not in the way the media is currently outlining.

the-scheme-2.jpg?w=640&h=586

The story of how surveillance on the 2016 campaign of Donald Trump took place is simple. However, to understand the truth behind how they did it – the story it becomes more complex.  Some key background understanding is necessary.

♦First, to understand what took place in 2016 we must first travel back to 2015 when Office of Inspector General (OIG) Michael Horowitz asked for approval to conduct oversight over the National Security Division of the Department of Justice."

Trump deserves credit for Korea talks, says President Moon

Jan. 10, 2018  

"South Korea's President Moon Jae-in says his US counterpart, Donald Trump, "deserves big credit" for talks between South and North Korea.

The talks, held on Tuesday, were the first in two years and led to the announcement that North Korea would send a delegation to the Olympics in Pyeongchang later this year.

Mr Moon said he wanted to show Mr Trump his gratitude.

The US president tweeted a week ago that he had brought the talks about.

He said he had done so by being "firm, strong and willing to commit our total 'might' against the North".

Mr Moon told reporters on Wednesday: "I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks.

"It could be a resulting work of the US-led sanctions and pressure," he said."

Why globalists freaked out at Trump’s comment on ‘Sh** hole countries’

 

One thing I have learned after years of observing the globalists and their cadre of bought-and-paid-for politicians is that the issue being hammered in the media is never the real issue or goal of any given program or policy.

Let me explain.

President Trump got in hot water after it was leaked to the media that he allegedly used some crude language to describe the Third World countries like Haiti, El Salvador and Somalia that send us tens of thousands of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees every year. In typical Trumpian fashion, he reportedly asked “Why do we have to take so many people from shithole countries?”

FBI agent sent ‘jaw-dropping’ text about no Russia collusion – senator

Jan. 23, 2018

"The FBI agent who investigated the Trump-Russia collusion claim sent a “jaw-dropping” text message suggesting that there was nothing to it, according to a Wisconsin senator who chairs the Homeland Security Committee.

Peter Strzok, formerly the deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, sent a text to his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, on May 19, 2017 – just two days after the special counsel was appointed to investigate claims of President Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Strzok had led the investigation into Trump since July 2016, and had previously been involved in the probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

"You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” Strzok texted Page, according to Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), who read out the message on Tuesday during an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber.

snip  tweet

“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson. “In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation.”

Johnson chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which has been looking into the “completely unguarded” texts between Strzok and Page. The two were quietly removed from Mueller’s staff at some point last year after their texts to each other revealed a major conflict of interest.

Among other things, Strzok and Page discussed an “insurance policy” in case Trump won the election. On Tuesday, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) said that one of the texts he had seen even referenced a “secret society” at the FBI."

FBI Official: FBI Agents Threatened Physical Harm to President Trump In Missing FBI Texts & Other “Frightening” Communications

Jan. 23, 2018

“This is much larger than just texts between two FBI agents.”

A high-ranking FBI official confirms a number of the missing 50,000 FBI text messages — as well as other text and email messages among FBI brass — reportedly discussed initiating physical harm to President Donald Trump.

The FBI official urged the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — which oversees the U.S. Secret Service  — to launch an investigation of the Justice Department, the FBI and all text messages missing and otherwise that threatened the President."

Why Democrat Chuck Schumer Appeared to Shut Down the Government for Three Days "For No Reason"

Posted By: Mr.Ed [Send E-Mail]

Why Democrat Chuck Schummer appeared to shut down the government for three days "for no reason"

January 20, 2017 President Trump took his Oath of Office.

An Office in the Territorial Government is a Public Trust.

Trusts do not become law for a year and a day.

His Office, his Trust, would have become law on January 21st of this year--- but that didn't happen, because Chuck Schummer contrived to shut down the government for three days at precisely the critical time.

This is called "breaking the continuity of the evidence".

As a result, nothing that President Trump did during his entire first year in Office, all the laws and Executive Orders and Directives he signed---- technically didn't cure.

Now, either he did this to himself because he wanted to void out mistakes made during the first year of His Presidency, or, far more likely, the Dems saw their opportunity to "win" by technicality and are scheming to invalidate everything he has done and everything he will do this next year and after----just by sitting back and not telling him that his Office never cured.

These are very devious, very skillful, very evil men he is dealing with, people who have been trained in the black arts and ecclesiastical law. He truly is contesting with Evil in High Places, so it is important that the "Good Witches" and "White Hats" surround him and educate and warn him and protect him, just as I am doing by writing this memo today.

To counteract this, he has to re-take his Oath of Office, re-do the things he wants to stick...re-sign legislation, re-issue Executive Orders, etc....and begin the whole timeline over again, being sure that his Office cures and is not interrupted by any more chicanery for a year and a day.

There after, his work will stand and his term will run and there won't be anything that anyone can say or do against it.

And now you all know why Democrat Chuck Schummer appeared to shut down the government for three days "for no reason".

Ugandan president praises Trump for his frankness: 'Africans need to solve their problems'

Jan. 24, 2018   Rebecca Savransky

"Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is praising President Trump for his frankness.

"America has got one of the best presidents ever," Museveni said during the opening of the East African Legislative Assembly in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, the BBC reported.

"I love Trump because he tells Africans frankly. The Africans need to solve their problems, the Africans are weak."

His comments come after Trump reportedly said during a meeting at the White House earlier this month certain nations, including some in Africa, were "shithole countries."
Trump faced widespread backlash and accusations of racism after his reported comments.

Trump has pushed back against the reports of the comments and denied he is racist.

After reports of his comments surfaced, world leaders condemned the remarks.

The African Union demanded an apology from Trump over the comments, which were also condemned by a group of African ambassadors to the United Nations."

President Trump Drops NUCLEAR BOMB on Vaccine Mandates…

Date: Thursday, 25-Jan-2018 11:18:05

 

Wars are won by making political alliances. If our side EVER wants to win we need to understand that simple fact.

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

It’s not the differences with your allies which should worry you, but the DESTRUCTION your common enemy has planned for everybody who is even remotely on your side.

With the establishment on Thursday of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division in the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights, Trump has laid the groundwork to smash every single vaccine mandate as well as turn BIG PHARMA into little pharma.
Don’t think this new division of Conscience and Religious Freedom at HHS is a big deal?

THINK AGAIN. It gives many different groups a BIG TENT under which to fight. I think it is time that Christians and Libertarians, and people of other religious faiths realize that we have a COMMON INTEREST in fighting against a FASCIST HEALTH ESTABLISHMENT.

HHS Announces New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division

Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is pleased to announce the formation of a new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division in the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The announcement will take place at an event at HHS headquarters from 10:30 a.m. to noon. It will be livestreamed here exit disclaimer icon. Speakers will include Acting Secretary Eric D. Hargan, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Representative Vicky Hartzler, Senator James Lankford, OCR Director Roger Severino, and special guests.

The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division has been established to restore federal enforcement of our nation’s laws that protect the fundamental and unalienable rights of conscience and religious freedom. OCR is the law enforcement agency within HHS that enforces federal laws protecting civil rights and conscience in health and human services, and the security and privacy of people’s health information. The creation of the new division will provide HHS with the focus it needs to more vigorously and effectively enforce existing laws protecting the rights of conscience and religious freedom, the first freedom protected in the Bill of Rights.

OCR already has enforcement authority over federal conscience protection statutes, such as the Church, Coats-Snowe, and Weldon Amendments; Section 1553 of the Affordable Care Act (on assisted suicide); and certain federal nondiscrimination laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of religion in a variety of HHS programs.

OCR Director Severino said, “Laws protecting religious freedom and conscience rights are just empty words on paper if they aren’t enforced. No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one’s deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice. For too long, governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection, but change is coming and it begins here and now.”

Acting HHS Secretary Hargan said, “President Trump promised the American people that his administration would vigorously uphold the rights of conscience and religious freedom. That promise is being kept today. The Founding Fathers knew that a nation that respects conscience rights is more diverse and more free, and OCR’s new division will help make that vision a reality.”

Donald Trump Announces $1 Trillion Infrastructure Plan

Posted By: RumorMail [Send E-Mail]
Date: Thursday, 25-Jan-2018 10:45:54

 

by Charlie Spiering24 Jan 20184002

President Donald Trump announced plans for a $1.7 trillion infrastructure (buildings, roads-bridges, and power supplies)investment plan on Wednesday.

“We’re also working to rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure by stimulating a $1 trillion dollar investment, and that will actually probably end up being $1.7 trillion dollars,” he said.

The president revealed the price-tag during a meeting with about a hundred mayors of cities inside the United States. He plans to introduce the plan at his State of the Union address with further details afterward.

“Oh, you like that?” Trump asked as the mayors applauded wildly and cheered. “I can tell we have mayors in the room … only mayors could be that excited.”

He said that he wanted all of the projects funded by his plan to be “on time and under budget.”

Trump also promised to start sending military equipment back to local communities, something that the Obama administration tried to stop.

Trump pointed to Democrat mayors of major cities that boycotted the meeting because of his stance on sanctuary cities. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock were among the mayors that protested the meeting.

“The mayors who choose to boycott this event have put the needs of criminal, illegal immigrants over law-abiding America,” Trump said. “So let me tell you, the vast majority of people showed up.”

TRUMP DIVIDES AMERICANS AND UN-AMERICANS

 

There are two stories of America. One is the American story and the other the un-American story.

On one side there are pilgrims settling a new land and on the other colonists ethnically cleansing the native population. One side sees war heroes and the other sees killers. One sees brave police officers and the other genocidal bigots in uniform. One sees America. And the other hates it.

At the State of the Union, we saw those two halves divide up the House Chamber. We saw American elected officials stand for the flag, for the anthem, for veterans, for Jerusalem and for In God We Trust. And we saw the un-American officials selected by corrupt urban machine politics stay seated.

The leaders of America and un-America were there in one room while America’s story was told.

We saw heroes rise in the House Chamber and we saw the Congressional Black Caucus members in kente cloth scowling through the good news about African-American unemployment. Rep. Pelosi grimaced and Senator Schumer glared through President Trump’s appeal for bipartisanship. Senator Booker stared hatefully and Elizabeth Warren ranted hysterically on Twitter.

The Democrats and the media called the speech divisive. And it was. But not in the way they meant.

There was little in the way of partisanship in President Trump’s remarks. They were meant to unite the men and women in the House Chamber “not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people.” Even his tough talk on immigration came with offers of a negotiated compromise.

Pentagon to expand GITMO after Trump orders it remain open

Feb. 1, 2018      Tony Bertuca

"The Defense Department intends to transfer $14 million in existing funds to expand the controversial U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a new document released by the Pentagon comptroller's office.

The expansion comes as President Trump has signed an executive order directing the facility to remain open. Trump voiced strong support for the facility in his State of the Union address and also announced that he has asked Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to "re-examine our military detention policy."

DJT's Answer To Big Pharma's Letter...Will Cost Them Billions

Posted By: Watchman
Date: Monday, 12-Feb-2018 17:20:18

In Response To: Donald Trump Jr.'s wife hospitalized after opening envelope with white powder (NaturalWisdom)

 

The Trump administration is preparing to do something that no administration in the modern era has ever attempted must less expressed an interest in doing: Taking on Big Pharma and its schemes to maximize profits at the expense of patients.

If you recall, one of the big, fat lies Barack Obama and his sycophantic Democratic allies in Congress told in order to dupe Americans into backing their “healthcare reform” plan was that the wrongly-named “Affordable” Care Act would reduce drug prices.

Sort of. Well, not really. Obama talked around the issue a lot when he was pressed (as you can see in this interview from 2011) but when it came right down to it, the “reform” law contained no provisions for dealing with rising drug prices. Which is why they continued to rise during his administration.

Now, President Donald J. Trump wants to take on Big Pharma in no uncertain terms.

In his State of the Union Address last month, Trump sent a signal that one of his administration’s most pressing priorities in the coming months and years is working to get the price of drugs down.

“One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs. In many other countries, these drugs cost far less than what we pay in the United States. That is why I have directed my administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities. Prices will come down,” the president said.

That plan is being put into action. Newly-confirmed Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, along with White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney met with a small group of reporters last week to provide them with a preview into the administration’s Fiscal Year 2019 budget which provides some details into how the president intends to bring prices down and make good on his promise (something he’s good at).

Azar noted that the administration seeks to accomplish the president’s objective by framing the issue with two principal questions: “How can we try to start flipping some of those incentives in the system geared towards higher prices? How do we find pockets of our programs where we maybe don’t negotiate enough or have people negotiating on our behalf to get as good of a deal?”

Trump officials are looking at policy shifts and changes in a number of federal agencies including the Food and Drug Administration, as well as current federal law and policies dealing with Medicaid, drug reimbursement, and other measures. (Related: Trump’s attack on Big Pharma’s cartel profiteering lost the drug industry about $25 billion in 20 minutes.

I have about as much faith in Azar as I do in Trump.  Alex Azar, a former executive and lobbyist for pharma giant Eli Lilly!  Can’t believe he’s now the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.  Well, yeah I can.  And Mulvaney is a joke.  White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney on Tuesday said that he probably wouldn’t have supported President Trump’s 2019 budget request as a member of Congress, but that he can defend it now that he’s part of the Trump administration.”  Wow, how the tides turn.  Republicans can spend away.

Wish I could agree with you Jessica, but I don't.  I know so many people, intelligent, articulate, kind, loving and generous, who believe in Trump 100%.  I almost did.  But, I have seen far too much damage he has done so far and with 3 years left in the Whitehouse, I can only pray he does little more.

I do believe, though, he is a necessary evil, and because of him, a leader will arise.  An extraordinary person, a Wayshower, who will assist in the transformation of our unique place in the universe.  

Trump is just one of many who have been placed on a ladder to bring about events that will allow this to occur.  We’re getting near the top, but not quite there.  I trust that with Trump in the Whitehouse, negativity, destruction, and damage will only grow and fester, finally to the breaking point.  At that point, it is my hope that humankind will then acknowledge that love, joy, wonder, tenderness, gratitude, acceptance and tolerance are our true points of light.  And only then will humankind be redeemed and restored. 

However that pustule pops, it will undoubtedly change the course of our world.  And I do credit Trump as a major factor in that change.  That will be the good that he does do.  But, until then, it will be miserable for many, if not downright lethal for quite a few.

Hopefully, it will not mean thousands or millions will unnecessarily perish at the mere casual push of a button, but that is a real possibility, and one I do fear is very likely.

I see no one in the level of government to whom we, their constituents, were taught to look up to with the level of guardianship, care, protection, and consideration as that of our forefathers.  It’s not that we don’t have these types of grand individuals who can come to the forefront to fulfill that role, it’s just the money doesn’t back them.  That’s unfortunate.

Until that equation is taken from the game plan, we will not have that type of archetypal governance we desire and deserve.  Thus, my reason to believe it must break, and break hard.  It’s only a matter of time until that occurs. 

On another note, perhaps the destruction we are heading towards may not be via a president.  Perhaps its cause comes from a CME or major volcanic eruption, something so cataclysmic that we cannot simply go back to doing what we did before.  It will still require real transformation—from the roots of the flower to the top of the tree.  At that moment, the soul, each of our souls, will indeed be transformed. 

That is where my faith lay.  On all of us.

Well at least we can agree to disagree.

There is far too much animosity between strangers, friends, and even family over politics these days.  I get up and leave the room whenever my family starts talking politics.  It always dissolves into this ugly close-minded stubborn anger on both sides.  We ALL need to remember we are NOT our governments.  We are individuals and we need to stop carrying these asshole's flags for them.  The world would be a far better place without bankers and politicians, but alas, we don't live in that reality (YET!).  They give us two options and make us take sides.  But you don't have to play that game.

TURN OFF THE NEWS and live your life the way YOU think is right.  Don't give a shit what happens in Washington.  Pay attention to what is right in front of you.  Your family, your work, your passions.  Don't wait for a president/prime minister/king/queen to fix or make problems for you.  Focus on what you can do to make this world a better place, and how you can live a happier and more peaceful life within the confines of this system we've been thrust into.

I understand that political decisions have an impact on our lives, but there is rarely anything we can do about it.  Even when it comes to war.  If war is going to happen, there is little we can do as an individual to stop it.  We can choose to not fight these bastard's wars for them, and that's about it.  So try and remember to focus on the things you can change, and forget about the things you can't.

We need to prove to the universe/god/cosmos whatever - that we no longer need these authority figures to run our lives for us.  But that means taking personal responsibility for your life and all that you've been dealt.  Always strive to move onward and upward while keeping your dignity and humanity intact.  It can be challenging at times, but that is when we need to remain steadfast in our respect for each other and recognize that we are individuals but we also need each other if we are going to evolve as real humans.

I appreciate everyone's point of view here.  It allows me to glimpse the world from other people's eyes and perhaps open my mind to concepts and ideas that I may not have found on my own.  

And thank you to all the members of Chani who have kept this place remarkably open, hospitable, and tolerant in this age of hostile divisiveness.

President Trump Prepares to Exit NAFTA – Corrupt GOPe Fight To Retain…    <we missed this one

Jan. 18, 2018       sundance

 

"The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is one of the key economic constructs where DC politicians show their UniParty corporate stripes. [Another is immigration usurpation]  The professional political class within both parties are aligned in common cause to retain both open-border immigration access (cheap labor), and multinational corporation control over North American Trade.

Decades of carefully constructed legislation, written by corporate lobbyists to the benefit of their crony-constituents on Wall Street, are at risk from President Trump’s America-First economic trade platform which includes exiting NAFTA.

Democrats and Republicans who have been purchased by the massive lobbying of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are in direct confrontation with President Trump on this issue."

THANK YOU BRYAN!!! for these words, as I was just getting ready to try to articulate the same thoughts, but instead will quote you and say Hear! Hear!!   Perfectly stated!

"I appreciate everyone's point of view here.  It allows me to glimpse the world from other people's eyes and perhaps open my mind to concepts and ideas that I may not have found on my own.  

And thank you to all the members of Chani who have kept this place remarkably open, hospitable, and tolerant in this age of hostile divisiveness."

Then to Foop, I will say this.  This country did not get to the point where we find ourselves, just in the last 13 months. It has taken a couple centuries, or more, for us to get here, with the cooperation of many thousands of people. Do we even have the right to expect one man to change it?  Change of the sort required, is never painless, but change we must.  I may not agree with you 100%, in regard to Trump,  but I respect your right to feel as you do.
