For those that are unaware there are two Nord stream pipelines (one and two) entering the EU from Russia. Until recently Nord Stream 1 was shut down for maintenance, this pipeline involved the turbine which was held hostage by Schwab’s puppet Trudeau. The other Nord Stream 2 pipeline runs thru the Baltic Sea. It has the capacity to transport 55 billion m3 of gas annually, its construction was completed September 2021, Gazprom has indicated the pipeline is ready for use. Germany’s masters have not allowed Germany to accept the completions certification, as a result the project was halted indefinitely. I believe the German’s are considering repurposing parts of the pipeline for an LNG terminal. Most probably they are acting under instruction and the best interests of the US in detriment to their own people’s needs and those of Europe.
Putin believes that Canada stalled the return of the turbine to Russia, because of its self-interest. Canada is the world 4th largest producer of natural gas, selling its surplus to the US in March, indicating it had the capacity to increase its hydrocarbons exports. The RF believes Canada is eyeing the EU market.
Gazprom resumed the delivery of gas from Russia to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea pipeline on Thursday at 40% capacity as per the existing agreement. The pipeline is not fully charged because the turbine has not been returned, presumably it’s in transit. The quality of the repairs to the turbine may be called into question following inspection and installation as such there could be an unexpected impact on gas flow.
The German regulator expects that in 2023 the cost of gas for Germany is likely to increase threefold. In certain instances, gas prices on the stock exchange are incurring a 7-fold increase for which the everyday Germans will eventually pay for. The daily power consumption bills have doubled and continue to grow in parallel with the delivery of sanctioned packages. With further political impacts on the Nord Stream, Germany may face a shortage of “blue fuel” in autumn and winter.
It is my understanding that the first 2 EU dominos have fallen, among the EU block Lithuania and Estonia have entered into recession. The GDP of these countries will continue to fall in the second half of 2022. According to Eurostat, Estonia’s inflation has reached 22%, this is the highest rate in the EU. Second and third place among the neighbours are Lithuania (20.5%) and Latvia (19.2). The overall inflation in the Eurozone attained a historic high of 8.6% in June. The primary cause is oil and gas prices, having increased to 42% due to sanctions of their own making. Austria, Luxembourg, Belgium and Portugal are facing continued production cuts. The European Commission predicted record inflation and a slowdown in GDP growth for the entire EU and all this self-inflicted. One must wonder whether the EU politicians are complete imbeciles or they are deliberately leading Europe’s people into the dark ages, or both.
The Baltic EU members Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania ceased importing Russian gas in compliance with western sanctions. They have also rejected Russia’s request for natural gas payment in rubles. Despite 90% of the Latvia’s gas being sourced from Russia the country does not intend to resume Russian gas imports. Meanwhile, gas prices in Latvia are soaring. Some households are now paying between 66% and 90% more or gas in July 2022. This week the Estonian cost of electricity exceeded its record high. The average exchange price for Estonian electricity was €300 per megawatt-hour. The price of electricity in Finland, Latvia and Lithuania is in the same price range.
Recently the former Lithuanian Foreign Minister acknowledged the EU measures against Russia are counter-productive. The EU exchanged significantly more money with Russia when buying hydrocarbons and coal than it sent aid to Ukraine. As a result, the price of hydrocarbons continues to grow while the ruble strengthens. I wonder if they realise that they are inadvertently helping Russia.
Russia’s Trade Ministry, will focus on economic policy prioritizing domestic needs and our technological sovereignty by re-establishing the Russian military-industrial complex. Russia will increase its export potential with countries like the Middle East, SE Asia, Africa and S. America. Technological sovereignty will be ensured thru sustainable independence in all consumer sectors. Additional funding will accelerate the production of Russian analogues hence replacing imported components while implementing alternative logistical pathways to new markets for Russian products. Russia shall enhance national security and defence thru the prioritisation of Russian-made high-tech weaponry; self-reliance in the manufacture of equipment for the Russian energy sector, shipbuilding, aircraft manufacture and the enhancement of our chemical industries while reviving the electronic engineering sector.
Ukrainian entities continue to resell weaponry supplied by the western alliance. NATO supplied kamikaze drones, UAV Switchblade-300’s which are now available on the dark web, not forgetting the American “Javelins”. I believe at least one PRK has arrived in Turkey. The Pentagon has indicated that it cannot find evidence of this. I wonder what they’ll say when the EU criminal elements start applying this tech on the streets of Europe. A novel concept in democracy, in the Ukrainian-controlled portion of Zaporozhye, motorists are being stopped and issued on the spot military summonses. Apparently, the AFU is conducting mass raids in all districts, rounding up volunteers for the frontline.
In 2014 the US-backed coup overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian government. It was then that Ukraine, incorporated Nazi militias like the Azov Battalion, into its National Guard. Western media outlets have amplified Azov propaganda.
fakebook Facebook control of free speech side stepped allowing its users to praise Neo-Nazis. News outlets like “Newsweek” and the “Associated Press” inflate Zelensky to “hero” status. But they choose to ignore Zelensky’s version of democracy, which incorporates the arrest of the main opposition party’s leader, shutting down all other opposition parties while banning critical TV and online media outlets. He has gone so far as to take full control of all the major media outlets in the Ukraine. Perhaps it’s a case of finding democracy on the other side of Zelensky’s war.
In 2018 Reuters acknowledged that numerous Ukrainian militias use Nazi symbolism and continue to actively recruit the NAZI acolyte. In 2019 roughly 40 US senators signed a document demanding many of these militias, primarily Ukraine’s Azov Battalion, be designated as terrorist organizations. Again, I would say that we continue to crush the Azov NAZI’s, their tattoos simplify their identification and they are looking like becoming an endangered species at least in the new-Ukraine. It won’t be long before many will flee into the EU, good luck to the EU.
Biden’s recent visit to Riyadh was met with impotent success. The Saudis agreed to increase oil production by roughly 15 % an achievement to be met by 2027, too little too late. In March of 2022, Boris Johnson failed to convince Riyadh to jack up production, Biden in lockstep with Johnson, failed in the same manner. It may be an opportune time to mention that Saudi Arabia sells 20% of all exported oil to China and is negotiating to switch to payments in yuan.
Russia and Iran have agreed to advance mutual trade in national currencies. The Tehran Currency Exchange has launched trading in Russian rubles. They will be traded in pairs with the Iranian rial. Moscow and Tehran have signed agreements on the development of interbank and currency cooperation, another step closer to de-dollarisation. Following the weaponization of the SWIFT System all currency settlements between Kyrgyzstan and Russia are now transacted in rubles. Kyrgyzstan has switched to payment in rubles for fuel supplies from Russia. Syria is severing diplomatic relations with Ukraine. Earlier, the Syrian Foreign Ministry announced the recognition of the independence of the DPR and LPR. The Supreme leader of Iran Khamenei stated NATO would have started a war with Russia under the pretext of Crimea if the alliance had not acted to defend its sovereignty, NATO knows no boundaries.
Iran intends to transfer drones to Russia; in response the US intends to sanction Iran further. Iran is currently fully sanctioned by the US and their cohorts; I didn’t think there was anything else left to sanction. According to the Iranian Army Commander Heydari, Tehran is ready to export military equipment and weapons to the RF.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) is a Eurasian economic and security alliance and the world’s largest regional organisation covering 60% of Eurasia, 40% of the world’s population and greater than 30% of the worlds GDP. The organization currently includes India, Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. The SCO confirmed Belarus has officially applied to join and that Iran has indicated its intention to do likewise.
It was announced that the “House of Military Officers” in Vinnitsa was destroyed following a sea-launched Kalibr cruise missile strike. The strike was timed to occur when senior Ukrainian military were holding secret talks with foreign arms suppliers. They were discussing the transfer of warplanes, weapons systems and repair of the air force fleet. All participants were liquidated.
America’s House of Representatives has authorized a defence expenditure (tax payers money) of $840 billion for 2023, exceeding Biden’s proposed record military budget by $37 billion. The annual National Defence Authorization Act (which sets military expenditure), was passed on Thursday by a vote of 329-101. I wonder if they know something that we don’t. Until recently, America was secretly using private companies to buy essential goods such as fertilizers, food, seed, medicines and medical equipment from Russia.
Zelensky would like the world to believe that all of Ukraine is against Russia, but in reality, the RF receive constant and accurate intel from the general population of Ukraine. The intel provided often defines the positions of the Ukrainian forces. They are helping the RF liberate their cities from Ukrofascists occupation. This is typical of Nikolaev, Odessa and many other cities, messages continue to be received regularly from multiple sources.
The Pentagon has weaponised Microsoft Corporation; it has taken control of the entire Ukrainian information network. Zelensky has given them unrestricted access to all communication devices in the country for surveillance, provocations, computer attacks under a false flag, this was indicated by Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister.#

Pepe Escobar The Suicide Spectacular Summer Show, currently on screen across Europe, proceeds in full regalia.
“………“Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield, well, what can I say, let them try. We have heard many times that the West wants to fight us to the last Ukrainian – this is a tragedy for the Ukrainian people. But it looks like it’s all coming to this. But everyone should know that, by and large, we haven’t really started anything yet.”
Fact. On Operation Z, Russia is using a fraction of its military potential, resources and state of the art weapons.
Then we come to the most probable path ahead in the war theater:
“We do not refuse peace negotiations, but those who refuse should know that the longer it drags, the more difficult it will be for them to negotiate with us.”
As in the pain dial will be ratcheted up, slowly but surely, on all fronts.
Yet the meat of the matter had been delivered earlier in the speech: “ratcheting up the pain dial” applies in fact to dismantling the whole “rules-based international order” edifice. The geopolitical world has changed. Forever.
Here’s the arguably key passage:
“They should have understood that they have already lost from the very beginning of our special military operation, because its beginning means the beginning of a radical breakdown of the World Order in the American way. This is the beginning of the transition from liberal-globalist American egocentrism to a truly multipolar world – a world based not on selfish rules invented by someone for themselves, behind which there is nothing but the desire for hegemony, not on hypocritical double-standards, but on international law, on the true sovereignty of peoples and civilizations, on their will to live their historical destiny, their values and traditions and build cooperation on the basis of democracy, justice and equality. And we must understand that this process can no longer be stopped.”
Meet the trifecta
A case can be made that Putin and Russia’s Security Council are implementing a tactical trifecta that has reduced the collective West to an amorphous bunch of bio headless chickens.
The trifecta mixes the promise of negotiations – but only when considering Russia’s steady advances on the ground in Novorossiya; the fact that Russia’s global “isolation” has been proved in practice to be nonsense; and tweaking the most visible pain dial of them all: Europe’s dependence on Russian energy.
The main reason for the graphic, thundering failure of the G20 Foreign Ministers summit in Bali is that the G7 – or NATOstan plus American colony Japan – could not force the BRICS plus major Global South players to isolate, sanction and/or demonize Russia.
On the contrary: multiple interpolations outside of the G20 spell out even more Eurasia-wide integration. Here are a few examples.
The first transit of Russian products to India via the International North-South Transportation Corridor (INSTC) is now in effect, crisscrossing Eurasia from Mumbai to the Baltic via Iranian ports (Chabahar or Bandar Abbas), the Caspian Sea, and Southern and Central Russia. Crucially, the route is shorter and cheaper than going through the Suez Canal.
In parallel, the head of the Iranian Central Bank, Ali Salehabadi, confirmed that a memorandum of interbank cooperation was signed between Tehran and Moscow.
That means a viable alternative to SWIFT, and a direct consequence of Iran’s application to become a full BRICS member, announced at the recent summit in Beijing. The BRICS, since 2014, when the New Development Bank (NDB) was founded, have been busy building their own financial infrastructure, including the near future creation of a single reserve currency. As part of the process, the harmonization of Russian and Iranian banking systems is inevitable………”

What is Bildeberger?
It is a meeting of world financial and political Oligarchs striving for a New World Order, From their website:
The annual Bilderberg Meeting is a three-day forum for informal discussions, designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. The pioneering Meeting grew out of the concern, expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic, that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on issues of common interest.
The first Meeting took place in Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, The Netherlands, from 29 to 31 May 1954. Representatives from economic, social, political and cultural fields were invited to informal discussions to help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post-war period.
Throughout the years the annual Meetings have become a forum for discussion on a wide range of topics – from trade to jobs to technology, from monetary policy to investment and from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. In the context of a globalised world, it is hard to think of any issue in either Europe or North America that could be tackled unilaterally.

Former Australian Politician Peter Costello is now Chairman of the Australian Government Investment Fund which includes over a billion dollars’ worth of vaccine company shares, while he also chairs a media company which publishes articles demeaning and marginalising people who question the ever-increasing number of lucrative vaccine products being added to the vaccination schedule.
There’s a murky story to uncover about relationships between the media and vaccine industry…and connections with government.

Minister’s foreword to ‘Your guide to the Digital Identity legislation’
As we have seen during recent years, Australians are keen and willing to adapt to challenges (Scamdemic). In recent years, our nation has transformed the way we go about our daily lives – and it all revolves around digital. From shopping to banking to accessing government services, Australia has turned to digital in droves.
With this comes great benefits – a thriving digital economy drives growth by enabling businesses to prosper, providing more job opportunities for Australians, and connecting us with emerging industries and technologies across the world. However, Australians and Australian businesses must have trust and confidence that the system and their personal information is safe and secure.
A safe, thriving digital economy is the best way we can grow the Australian economy.
A safe, thriving digital economy is not possible without digital identity – that is, a safe, secure and convenient way for Australians to prove their identity online.
This is the focus of the proposed Digital Identity legislation. The Trusted Digital Identity Bill, once passed by Parliament, will establish permanent oversight and governance structures for the Australian Government Digital Identity System, and enshrine in law important privacy and consumer protections. It builds on strong safeguards already in place, providing the authority for a consistent set of rules that will protect Australians and Australian businesses. The work achieved in this space, and the future opportunities that legislation will enable, are critical parts of the Morrison Government’s ambition for our nation to be a leading digital economy and society by 2030.
The release of this exposure draft of the Bill and supporting materials is the next step in a multi-year journey of consultation to ensure the legislation is robust, fit-for-purpose, and meets public expectations. My sincere thanks to those who have contributed their views to date. I encourage you all to review the materials and provide your feedback to help us ensure this important work is done right.
The Hon. Stuart Robert MP
Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business

Katter’s Australian Party Leader and Member for Traeger Robbie Katter has appealed to the State and Federal Governments to intervene as the deadline approaches for the cancellation of all newspaper deliveries to at least 30 rural Queensland communities.
Mr Katter said thousands of Queenslanders would effectively be cut off from the rest of the state in a matter of weeks in what could be termed as regional “newspaper blackout”.
He said, as proven by the McKell Institute’s new report, Bridging the Digital Divide, rural and regional Queenslanders were already adversely impacted by digital exclusion by virtue of geography and socio-economic challenges.
Removing their printed newspapers from the equation would be a final blow and would have hugely negative flow-on effects to local businesses like newsagencies, Mr Katter said.
According to the McKell Institute, geography is a huge disadvantage to when it comes to accessing the internet – for example, people in North West Queensland (including Cape York) have been found to be less likely to use digital technologies.
From September 26th, towns like Mount Isa, Winton and Clermont will no longer be provided with print newspapers.
Earlier this year, NewsCorp – who publishes major mastheads like The Courier Mail and The Australian – announced it would cease the delivery of its papers to central and North-West Queensland due to freight costs.
Rural Newsagent Merry Higgins from Cunnamulla, said, “I can’t increase the retail price to cover the price because of contractual conditions.
“During COVID lockdown I was required to continue trading as an essential service to provide the public with newspapers reporting on COVID. Now when it suits Newscorp they have decided to stop supplying the papers and the government is powerless to stop them.
“It has been extremely stressful dealing with the customers and their questions and also considering the direction I need to take my business.
“There has been scant interest from local government not even a conversation. This is disturbing given that council is at the moment rolling out an economic policy that includes strategies to attract more people to town and asking businesses to support them.”
Ms Higgins also said, “As far as receiving the newscorp papers – freight needs to be subsidised. There were several very good solutions offered to Newscorp regarding ways to decrease their freight charges, but they chose not to listen.
“I fully support Robbie’s plan – We have always had a privately owned local Cunnamulla paper and since the closure of the regional publications this has expanded to include neighbouring shires and districts.
“I’m not sure how profitable the paper is for the owner but I’m sure subsidised freight and legislation to ensure that the government advertises with the local papers would be of benefit to keeping them operating. Also support for employing cadet journalists would be an investment in the community.”
Mr Katter, said, “due to the high interdependency of delivery logistics in the bush, it was likely papers published by Nine (Sydney Morning Herald and Australian Financial Review) and Australian Community Media (The Land, Queensland Country Life and The North Queensland Register will also stop making their way to the regions in the near future too.”
Mr Katter is calling on all Queenslanders, and particularly those living in rural and regional communities, to sign his petition by September 10th – https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/Work-of-the-Assembly/Petitions/Petition-Details?id=3590
In the immediate future, the Government needs to offer subsidies to get these papers into regional and rural areas until local communities are able to develop their own regional newspapers, which is currently happening all around the state.
Currently, many rural communities are currently developing their own way of delivering news to their regions and once fully established, we will be in a position to replace the existing publications and remove the need for Metropolitan based media monopolies all together.
Cairnsnews and its small band of volunteers have been bombarded with nearly all non-mainstream media for months. We cannot read it all let alone research facts. And we do not have the luxury of watching endless hours of video shows.
Facts are impossible to find these days amid this bombardment and the psy-op being perpetrated by the mainstream media such as the ABC, News Ltd and commercial networks, some of which are aligned with fake news media like CNN, Google and The Guardian.
The US is teeming with fake news channels: https://prwatch.org/fakenews/tv-stations
The only way through this maze is to give some authenticity to those alternative channels that have been in operation for many years.
Alex Jones is one of these more reliable and credible commentators simply by his long-standing record. Another is Natural News run by Mike Adams. These reporters have been around for a long time and have major audiences world-wide.
Cairns News has another valuable correspondent in Forbidden Knowledge TV whose reporter and prolific author Alexandra Bruce is a long-time veteran of real US and world news.
A few readers like to criticise these reports and that’s fine but without the alt news we all would resemble mushrooms.
Regional Queenslanders and nearly all other districts across the nation are about to lose their local rag. Something as fundamental as a local newspaper which a reader can pick up from the newsagent is a part of Australian culture. Regional Australia can place the blame fairly and squarely on the LNP/ALP duopoly for allowing such a concentration of media in the hands of one media monolith. Murdoch took the abundant advertising cream from these tabloids for two to three decades after buying most independent newspapers from family owned businesses across Australia.
Murdoch editorials and general news stories have always favoured the LNP first, then the ALP and bugger everybody else. This is how Murdoch was allowed to have such a disproportionate concentration of media ownership which includes nearly all major city dailies and The Australian. Billions of dollars revenue from government advertising and the grocery duopoly also played a big part in the editorial flavour of News Ltd publications.
The opportunity now presents itself for new players to enter the print media market but there is one snag. Murdoch still controls most of the tabloid printing presses in Queensland and the price of printing a local paper might keep new publications from filling the void.
Banjo Peterson will roll over in his grave.

Revealed: The Australian companies manipulating our weather
For over five decades in Australia, the study of clouds, rain and the atmosphere has been largely hidden from the public, as a secretive network of government agencies and private business interests continue to manipulate the weather around us to their personal benefit.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s fundraising group, the Wentworth Forum, includes a long list of generous donors responsible for this move, including Frank Lowy, Ros Packer, John Simons, and Matt Handbury – chairman and part-owner of the Australian Rain Corporation!
It has been revealed that Mr. Handbury is the wealthy nephew of Rupert Murdoch and chairman and proprietor of Murdoch Books, which is the headquarters for Australian Rain Corporation!
As technological advancements began to take shape on a global level, so did the scale of programs and cooperation between countries to advance these techniques in the 20th Century.
In 1991, the Commonwealth awarded Telstra (previously Telecom) a prime contract worth $860 million to design and construct the Jindalee Operational Radar Network.
Telstra awarded major sub-contracts to GEC Marconi and Telstar Systems, a joint venture between Telstra and Lockheed Martin Corporation, and is supported by BAE Systems Australia, according to the SA government.
RLM Management Company, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and the Tenix Group assumed full management responsibility for the JORN project in 1997.
BAE Systems will undertake significant upgrades to the JORN, with a $1.2 billion enhancement set to peak at more than 500 highly technical jobs, many of them in South Australia, over the next 10 years.

Junk news, News Ltd is in damage control over social media revealing the true status of the UN Agenda 21/30 agreement which Australian states signed up to in 1992. Since then in Queensland it has been the blueprint for state and local government planning and by-laws to affect every mortal way of life.
Agenda 30, ‘A call for action to change our world’
Allotment sizes, storm water drainage, water ownership, road locations, vegetation control, fire management(no machinery), super cities, smart cities, environmentally smart homes, smart meters, power generation, national parks, forestry, education, science, ad infinitum…..

Lachlan and Rupert Murdoch in damage control:
It is of interest that just on this site alone over 8 years there have been more than a quarter of a million views of our stories about this insidious UN Agreement which has been rigidly adhered to by Queensland and all other state governments since 1992.
Brain-dead News Ltd reporters are claiming a Facebook site shared an Agenda 21 story 30 times. Our articles do this almost on a daily basis. Cairnsnews has a much greater readership than the News Ltd hallmark social rag the Cairns Post and most of its other regional dailies. If this readership is combined with Australian Patriot Radio listeners then suddenly we are big players in the regional media stakes. Robert J Lee, Editor
by Alex Bruce US correspondent
Tim Pool has an excellent podcast on YouTube and he’s found a new niche as a Left-of-Center journalist who’s appalled at the unhinged radicalization of the Left in the US.
Lately, he’s been reporting on how journalism has been invaded and killed by what he calls “fringe activists” and that the data proves it. He says, “So long as actual news organizations provide safe harbor to these people journalism will remain dead.”
The data he refers to comes from fellow journalist, Zach Goldberg, who ran several “woke” keywords and phrases through a LexisNexis search, yielding graphs showing the frequency of these words’ appearance in mass media articles between 1990 and today.
We see the same radical hockey stick pattern starting in 2011 and going into overdrive in 2016 for all of the following: 1. “Diversity and Inclusion”, 2. “Whiteness”, 3. “Critical Race Theory”, 4. “Unconscious Bias”, 5. “White Privilege”, 6. “Systemic Racism”, 7. “Diversity Training”, 8. “Privilege”, 9. “Discrimination”, 10. “Social Justice”, 11. “Police Brutality”. 12. “Marginalized”, 13. “People of Color”, 14. “Racism”, 15. “White Supremacy”, 16. “Intersectionality”, 17. “Implicit Bias”, 18. “Political Correctness”, 19. “Diversity”.
Here, Pool dissects the tactics of these Alinskyite mercenaries, who are not content that 95% of the media in the US is Leftist, they need it to be 100% and they aggressively seek to de-platform anyone to the Right of Xi Jinping. This is what Vox journalist, Carlos Maza achieved last week with the de-platforming of thousands of YouTube accounts. Maza, who formerly worked at the George Soros-funded activist group, Media Matters, is a classic example of an activist posing as a journalist.

The United States National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, requested that GCHQ continue its pre-election spying on President Trump, his offices, and his residence at 725 Fifth Avenue in New York—an illegal act, but one supported fully by her ‘boss’, Barack Hussein Obama.
In fact, closed door testimony and corroborating e-mails ordered disclosed by a court under a Freedom of Information Act request, a senior FBI agent confirmed that ‘The White House is running this.’
Clintons Collude to Frame Trump
Hillary had to become president to prevent investigation of other crimes. She and Obama signed off on a deal to sell the Russians roughly 20% of U.S. uranium stores to be used for nuclear weapons in a pay-to-play scheme with Russia.
Her husband, Bill, made US$1/2 million for speeches in Russia, met with Putin on it, and their Clinton Foundation was paid $145 million by the same parties to the illegal transaction.
With but one exception, the Mainstream Media completely covered up or ignored the Uranium One scandal, even though it may be the greatest act of treason in my home nation’s history.
Hannity Attacked for Truthing
Only Australia’s News Corp allowed its U.S. affiliate, FOX News, to cover it, which caused an immediate campaign of terror against News Anchor, Sean Hannity, for doing so.
He was smeared publicly, received death threats, and shrill voices from inside and outside government called for his dismissal and ruin.
FOX News anchor, Sean Hannity was virulently attacked by others in his profession as part of the Clinton/Obama cover-up. They all remain silent on Uranium One.
Possible Treason from the Obama Administration
But now we have perhaps a greater act of treason—by the same bad actors. We can prove that the Obama Administration used foreign spies and agencies to begin what was nothing short of an attempted coup.
They intended to:
1) defeat President Trump using a knowingly false and salacious ‘dossier’ paid for by the Democrat party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign employing foreign spies and Russian collaboraters to produce it
2) in the unlikely event that Trump won, take him down with a FBI/CIA fabricated hoax about ‘Russian collusion’ — something that the Obama White House, The Democratic National Committee, Australian diplomats and ASIS, the British Government, the Clinton campaign, GCHQ, the CIA, FBI, NSA and Russian sources, actually did, while pasting the narrative on their opposition—the man they claimed was ‘too dangerous’ to be President— Donald J. Trump.
In closing, I wish to examine that promoted narrative that President Trump is ‘dangerous’ as the world’s media has sycophantically fallen in line with that story—and that is likely to be all you have heard. But as most such co-ordinated narratives fail upon the slightest inspection, so does this one.
Trump Boosts the Economy – By Taking the Government’s Boot off its Neck
First let’s look at the economy. Using the most rudimentary of economic principles, President Trump turned a stagnant mess into the most vibrant in the world in just two years.
No nation in history has ever taxed and regulated itself into prosperity—a perfect description of President Obama’s failed eight years at the the helm—and all President Trump had to do was leave more money in the people’s pockets and slash regulations.
For every new hindrance bureacracy put in the way of success in the form of new regulations, Trump’s team cut 22 others—and made it a rule that for every new one, at least two had to go.
Tens of thousands of stifling and mostly stupid rules went away over night, and the multiplier effect on the dollars left in the public’s hands through massive tax reductions immediately started working.
A dollar left in the hands of those who earned it, tends to benefit the economy in a roughly four-fold effect. I buy a new refrigerator with my extra money. The person who sold it to me opens another store.
The new store hires more people, and so on. A $250 billion dollar tax cut can be expected to create a trillion in new activity due to the multiplier effect—ultimately creating even greater tax revenue for government than before even at a higher rate. And guess what, it has.
Money stolen by government in the form of new taxes—like the Obamcare tax, for example—had a negative multiplier effect of roughly 1.3. A dollar taken, not only misses out on the upside, but puts a drag on existing economic activity.
The economy of the United States has added $9 trillion in value since the President made these simple moves.
