I have to start by saying that I really find it depressing and almost embarrassing to find myself back in this time frame of commenting on the quadrennial farce the Americans call an “election process.” It really is terrible. And what the Iowa debacle shows to the world is that there is no limit to the hypocrisy of the American consciousness or the American ruling class when it comes to accusing everyone else of having rigged elections, bad systems, not democracy etc etc.
The latest twist—of there being a neck-and-neck battle for New Hampshire, which is tomorrow (today)—is just the latest stint in this show, which is all about stopping Sanders. There is only one story in this whole election cycle, and that is stopping Sanders. The Democrat Party has been working on it not just for the last four years, but the very idea going back to at least 1980, with the Democratic Leadership Council. What they always want is just a new neoliberal with a twist. A fresh young face: Obama was the ‘black’ one; Mayor Pete is the ‘gay’ one. And that is new and fresh enough for the Democrats as long as you never say anything about class, or actually threaten the status quo in any real way.
It is designed to create a certain narrative. They’re making it up out of whole cloth. “There are no results.” This is 2020. Everyone has a cell phone, everyone has devices. They had results. But they relied on this app that was a sort of DNC front group called “Stealth” or “Shadow” or some other creepy name. They’re hiding the fact that this is an oligarchy. And the way the parties pick their nominee—not only do they produce two virtually identical candidates. But the process is repulsive; it’s completely opaque.
The real threat (or what they perceive as a threat) is this idea of a Sanders. And Sanders’ supporters call him a “movement” politician. I reject that, because I don’t think that the US voting populace has enough of a developed political consciousness to spawn a movement politician. But I would say that he is a moment politician.
As terrible as he is, especially on foreign policy, he has captured this moment on all these issues that he has been working on for decades. And at a time when people are very, very angry. Trump exploited it as a sort of faux populism that was based partly on a racial, xenophobic appeal. But there is a popular anger: people are unbelievably angry in this country. They don’t yet understand imperialism, and they have been bred not to ask questions about the wider picture.
But they know when somebody tells them that the economy is doing well they look around and they say ‘What are you talking about?’ And these are normal people. The statisticians can say well, the US created 225,000 jobs in January. And some poor schmuck in the pub sharing a drink with you will say ‘Yeah I know there are a lot of jobs—I have three of them!’ The question is why does it take 3 or 4 jobs to have the living you used to be able to have with one job.
The sad part is that Sanders is anything but an anti-imperialist, especially on foreign policy. The way he speaks about Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Russia –he comes down full force on the wrong side of history. It’s absolutely terrible. But, that said, he does reach into the anger in the vast majority of Americans, who are living paycheck to paycheck, who are scared about tomorrow, scared about health care, scared about the safety of their children, they’re scared about the future of the job market. They’re scared about education, and costs, and money, and working all the time and not being able to retire.
And what I think is that this idea is powerful. And if allowed to continue, it would have a solid chance of beating Trump. It would beat anybody: the people united, you know… But the Democrats are determined to divide people along all lines but class, so that they keep this non discussion [in place].
And I think that even from the perspective of the left—I mean, I’m not a Sanders supporter—but I think it is reasonable to try to organize on the outskirts of this moment. I think it’s silly not to engage. This is like the Superbowl; everybody is talking about it. So why not join the conversation? It’s a chance for a thousand—for millions of conversations—where you can talk to people who ordinarily would not be able to discuss anything like this. And say “What do you mean? What’s wrong with universal health care? The whole world has universal health care.”
Or “What’s wrong with universal free education? The entire developed world has this. What is wrong with questioning the idea that billionaires don’t need to be restricted in what they can say and buy and do?” And the ability to have that [discussion] is exceedingly rare. What foreigners don’t realize is how terrible the system is in this country in terms of restricting thought. They constantly use the term “autocrat” or “authoritarian” to describe Iran, or Russia, or anyplace that they don’t like, and then they say it’s not democratic, it’s this or that.
Not only are there crappy non-democratic elections here, where it’s just about how much power rich people can buy—the atmosphere here is so scared. There is no secret police—well of course there is, but I mean they’re not sitting in the bar listening to your conversations. Everybody is their own censor. It’s shocking. Foreigners are constantly shocked at the range of things that are just off the table, that you cannot discuss in American society. And because it’s kind of self imposed, or purchased—i.e. the idea of manufactured consent—people think they’re free.
So the Democratic National Committee, the Leadership Council, the GOP, the Deep State, all the powers that be, the oligarchs—are absolutely petrified—scared to death of these conversations taking place. But they are the key to getting rid of the US empire, of not only Trump but in the long term, beyond Trump: The Forever Wars, the permanent war machine, the oppression of black and brown people at home and abroad. All of this has to start with those conversations. And Americans are just not allowed to participate in it. So we have to fight for the very idea of talking, which is kind of strange. Wish us luck!

The new regulation would be Beijing’s first known public directive that sets specific limits in China’s use of foreign technology
China has ordered that all hardware and software from the United States be removed from government offices and public institutions within three years.
After little progress in the negotiations between the two countries, the government directive is likely to be a blow to U.S. multinational companies like HP, Dell and Microsoft, as the trade war between the countries turns into a technological cold war.
The Trump administration banned U.S. companies from doing business with Chinese telecommunications company Huawei this year and Google, Intel and Qualcomm announced that they would freeze cooperation with Huawei.
By excluding China from Western technology, the Trump administration has made it clear that the real battle is over which of the two economic superpowers would have the technological edge for the next two decades.
This is Beijing’s first known public directive that sets specific lines that limit China’s use of foreign technology, although it is part of a broader movement within China to increase its dependence on domestic technology.
#China sets itself apart from foreign computers: State offices must be equipped with Chinese equipment in three years. – A government initiative to reduce dependence on foreign technologies, according to the Financial Times. – Full technological sovereignty in the face of imperial threats.
According to analysts, the order sent from the central office of the Chinese Communist Party earlier this year would involve the replacement of 30 million pieces of hardware, a process that would begin in 2020.
Replacing all devices and software in this time period will be a challenge, as many products were developed for U.S. operating systems such as Windows.
Chinese government offices tend to use Chinese owned Lenovo company desktops, but computer components, including processor chips and hard drives, are manufactured by U.S. companies.
In May, Hu Xijin, editor of the Global Times newspaper in China, said the withdrawal of U.S. companies from their business with Huawei would not be a fatal defeat as the Chinese company would boost its own microchip industry to compete with the United States.
Ask any middle schooler about the basic role of government and they will answer — correctly — that it is to represent the views and ideas of the American people. Policies supported by a clear majority deserve action.
Today, representative democracy is on the brink as our government demonstrates an unprecedented disconnect from public opinion.
For instance, 83% of the public supports background checks for gun owners, but that hasn’t come to fruition. Some 77% of Americans want Roe v. Wade upheld, but that precedent keeps getting chipped away at. And 84% of the nation supports paid maternity leave, which has yet to become law despite President Donald Trump’s promising it during his 2016 campaign. We see time and time again that even overwhelmingly popular public views don’t translate to policy.
That’s because our three branches of government live under minority rule.
There is a disconnect between Capitol Hill and Main Street. Trump, whose rise was fueled by his message of taking on a “rigged” political system that failed to reflect the views and values of everyday Americans, understood and exploited that reality.
But the problem predates Trump. With gerrymandering as the standard and open primaries out of favor, politicians have tacked more to the base of their parties and away from the middle.
As a result ideas move or stall based on the power of a small group of primary-election voters and politicians who have gamed the system to block ideas that are overwhelmingly popular.
While minority views should be protected and voices outside of the consensus heard, the issue is that all three branches of the federal government are now in the hands of a group of politicians pushing distorted views to the mainstream:
The Senate: The structure of our Senate made sense in 1789 as a guarantee that smaller states would be heard. Today, smaller states have a significantly disproportionate voice, and the Republican Senate majority represents a historically low proportion of the country’s population.The narrowest majority of 50 senators who last year confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court represent just 44% of the US population. Many of these senators are the same ones blocking action on issues backed by most Americans, like gun safety, election reform, and climate change.
The courts: A Senate majority representing a historically small percentage of the population enables an equally problematic court system, well beyond the Supreme Court.
China has issued a stark warning following a stunning landslide victory for pro-democracy candidates in Hong Kong’s first elections since anti-government unrest gripped the city several months ago.
Foreign minister Wang Yi emphasized that the city will always be ruled from Beijing, and said that ongoing violence and “attempts to disrupt Hong Kong” would not be tolerated, as several hundred people took to the streets in solidarity with protesters at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which has been under siege by police for over a week, according to The Guardian.
Wang told reporters at the G20 meeting in Tokyo, adding “Any attempts to disrupt Hong Kong or undermine its stability and prosperity will not succeed.”
The election results pose a dilemma for Beijing, and Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam. Hand-picked to rule by party leaders, she is widely accepted to have coordinated her hardline response to protesters with China’s top leadership.
Before the vote, Lam often claimed she had the support of a “silent majority”, as she refused to compromise. With that position untenable after pro-government candidates were swept from power across the city, holding on to barely one in 10 seats on district councils, she took a more conciliatory approach.
On Monday, she promised to respect the election results and “listen humbly” to the views of the public. Refusing to compromise would almost certainly inflame residents and protesters further, nearly six months into a deep political crisis. –The Guardian
Following Wang’s comments, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang reiterated a warning to the protesters, saying “The most urgent task for Hong Kong at present is to stop violence, control chaos and restore order,” and that “The Chinese government is unswervingly determined to safeguard national sovereignty, and to oppose any interference in Hong Kong affairs by external forces.”
Embattled Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff is now the target of a federal investigation focused on the Congressman’s more-than-frequent trips to Ed Buck’s ‘drug house,’ according to a Clinton Whistleblower and insider. Buck is a high-profile, millionaire Democratic benefactor who has contributed and bundled large amounts of cash to Democrats including Schiff, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Kamala Harris and the list goes on and on. Buck was arrested last month after a nearly-dead man escaped from Buck’s home after Buck allegedly plied him with meth. Larry Nichols is the consummate DC insider and operator. In fact, Bill Clinton in his biography described Nichols as a dangerous man. Clinton would know because Nichols spearheaded many of Clinton’s political black-bag Ops in Arkansas and Washington D.C for the Clinton cartel and beyond before he turned whistleblower. Nichols revealed on his weekly news show on CrowdSource the Truth that federal agents have traced Congressman Schiff at Buck’s drug mansion over a dozen times. And now they want to know what Schiff was doing there. “(Attorney General William) Barr is looking into why Adam Schiff was at Buck’s place 16 times,” said insider Larry Nichols. “The reason Barr is obligated to look into Adam Schiff, and the fact that he was there 16 times, is because as a member of Congress if he saw at his time at Buck’s any illegal activity, he is obligated by law to report it. “And if he didn’t report it, then he is guilty of a crime.” Two men previously died at Buck’s mansion from drug overdoses but Buck was never charged by Los Angeles Police. Finally, Buck was charged in Sept. with running a drug house and doping up victims and then allegedly acting out his twisted sexual fantasies on the incapacitated victims, according to prosecutors. Buck targeted homeless men, according to prosecutors.
Just like with the Pedostein case, this is about human trafficking, and who knows what else. Trump has said often “These people are sick” and we are starting to get a sense of how deep and murky the swamp really is. All we know is what evidence the police found and reported. But as stated above, if the police found evidence of drug use and made arrests, how was Schiff not able to see any of this at his 16 visits? Perhaps he’s not a very good detective, he thought all these homeless guys lying around with needles and crack pipes were in fact diabetics ‘vaping’ with some trendy new JUUL tool that looks like a crack pipe. OK, we can give him that. If you don’t know it, maybe you don’t know what it looks like? But if he’s that oblivious to facts, is he then disqualified to be the sole witness, and lead plaintiff, and judge, and jury – in the “Impeachment” trial? One would think, that in the least, his being under investigation for a mysterious murder of Ed Buck (who would have been the most credible witness to what was really going on in West Hollywood at night) would at least be a conflict of interest.
There’s even an article in the failing New York Times about this, although they obviously limit the amount of casual connections made between Schiff and Buck. It’s clear why Schiff is leading the Impeachment coup publicly, because the Democrat strategy since Trump has been elected has been the old “Accuse your opponent of what you are guilty of, and the public will be confused” – this strategy works on brainless idiots and there are many in America. But there are also a lot of smart people, for example Zero Hedge readers – who know the world isn’t as seen on TV. We want to reference another 2 sites of interest – Rense.com with a fascinating columnist Yoichi Shimatsu we have referenced here at the end, and InfoWars.com now operating banned.video (Alex Jones has matured a lot in the last 2 years!) Going back to the story, let’s skip the fact that Schiff was very close with Buck and not only visited this drug den 17 times, they were constantly together at rallies, parties, social events, political fundraisers, and other events. See a photograph as example:
In civil lawsuits, Buck has been named as a human trafficker, rapist, and performing strange and nearly ‘ritualistic’ acts on homeless men in Los Angeles (mostly black). Does this sound familiar? Spirit cooking anyone? But was Buck really so bad? According to GayCityNews, this is what the police concluded:
An influential-turned-disgraced gay Democratic donor who has been linked to multiple overdose-related deaths of vulnerable black gay men in his Los Angeles home was arrested on September 17 after yet another man overdosed in his home last week, prosecutors in Los Angeles announced. The LA County District Attorney’ s Office said 65-year-old Ed Buck, who has steered many thousands of dollars into the war chests of Democratic candidates over the years, was charged with felony counts of battery causing serious injury, administering meth, and maintaining a drug house after he allegedly injected a man with meth in his West Hollywood apartment on September 11.
Make no mistake Schiff is not a mastermind or an Illuminati leader. He’s a puppet and like all puppets he has a weak spot they can press on. How Pedostein’s blackmail worked was obvious, as is the gay drug den. Who knows how many queer politicians had a romp there while at an LA Democrat convention.
To Trump’s credit, he hasn’t mentioned any of this when he’s been squaring off with Schiff – an honorable tactic but also it’s a smarter plan actually. He’s allowing the swamp to sink in its own filth. Look what happened with CNN – Trump certainly didn’t plan on Project Veritas and the #ExposeCNN event. But now he has evidence for a clear lawsuit against CNN. Perhaps this is what he’s waiting for with Schiff.
But there was nothing showbiz about what happened next: The bottle had a sharp edge, and Colbert, slightly wounded, was hurried off to the nurse. Now it’s at this point in the story that an ominous shadow falls over the congressman’s face. “A lot of others have been interviewed on the show, but only one member has actually made him [Colbert] bleed,” Schiff says, his voice ringing with a steely “Dirty Harry” note of pride in the pay back. Colbert’s injury proved to be superficial.
The House Intelligence Committee’s reenactment of the McCarthy hearings dramatized Marx’s famous aphorism that history repeats itself, “the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.” The only thing this circus was lacking was ringmaster Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California”) rising to declares that “I have in my hands a list!” War was on the minds and lips of the Democrats. Rep. Denny Heck (D-Washington) compared Hillary Clinton’s loss to the 9/11 attacks, because the killing of over 2,000 people on American soil is just like the publication of emails that exposed the corruption at the heart of Democratic party politics. Oh, and “the attack didn’t end on Election Day” – because isn’t that a Russian hiding under your bed? If political humor, albeit unintentional, is your shtick, there was plenty of that: my own favorite was Rep. Jackie Speier – from where else but California? – likening Vladimir Putin to a tarantula spider who has “ensnared in his web” a whole list of Trump supporters, including Wilbur Ross, the Commerce Secretary, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Echoing a common phrase at the hearing, she declared that alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was “an act of war,” although she gave no hint as to when the shooting will start.
RIP Justin Raimondo, founder of antiwar.com – who had stage 4 lung cancer, and was not murdered. Moving on to other strange coincidences surrounding this creep.
Of course, going with the Democrat ‘accuse your enemies of what you are guilty of’ strategy, as it turns out Schiff has his own Ukraine military contract that he’s been working on for awhile now, with fellow brother of the tribe Igor Pasternak. According to Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal, is facing questions about his own connection to a Soviet-born businessman who has raised money for his campaign and whose company has received lucrative defense contracts from Ukraine’s government. That man is Igor Pasternak, the founder and CEO of Worldwide Aeros Corp., which makes blimps for military and commercial customers. His business has also been involved in weapons manufacturing, working with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense to produce a modified version of the M4 and M16 rifles, according to reports.
Although the widely-cited 2013 fundraiser was in Washington, D.C., Igor Pasternak’s company headquarters is in Montebello, California, on the east side of Los Angeles. It’s near Schiff’s CA-28 congressional district, which lies to the north of it and encompasses major suburbs like Burbank and a chunk of Glendale. Pasternak started the company in Ukraine in 1992, but immigrated to the U.S. in 1994 and established his California-based company, Aeros/Worldwide Aeros Corporation, shortly thereafter. Aeros makes lighter-than-air (LTA) airships via its Aeroscraft arm. That is its signature niche in the general aviation industry as well as its entrée to defense contracting. Aeros has had contracts with the U.S. Defense Department to develop surveillance airships and cargo-delivery airships. Pasternak, an engineer by training, has had a lifelong interest in what can be done with LTA vehicles. The story about him as it stands right now is that he did little, if anything, in Ukraine in the 20 years between 1994 and 2014 (links below). Then, when the Maidan Revolution erupted in Ukraine in late 2013 and early 2014, he went back to Ukraine and started cultivating ties with the defense industry there. At that point, as is obvious from the document announcing the 2013 fundraiser, Pasternak was already giving aid and comfort to Adam Schiff. In the Ukrainian political sorting after the invasion and partitioning of Crimea, one of the major developments in Kyiv has been reorganizing the government-directed defense industry conglomerate, known by its acronym Ukroboronprom. Ukroboronprom coordinates the arms industry in Ukraine, in the same manner as similar entities in Russia, China, and a number of other countries. Its centralized nature and arms portfolio mean it is always rife with corruption, but at the moment, the point is simply to introduce it to the reader. In the course of establishing project-worthy contacts in Ukraine, Pasternak’s Aeroscraft had a couple of scores that, from the Aeros perspective, were big ones. One is a joint project with an Ukroboronprom subsidiary industry group, Ukroboronservis, to produce a Ukrainian version of the M4 used by the U.S. armed forces (here and here). That project is eye-catching because it involves producing rifles – not something Aeros has had a background in.
Frankly, this is the type of reporting that should be done by CNN and the traditional ‘mainstream’ media. #ExposeCNN and the Project Veritas videos were in many respects a dissapointment; we all knew CNN was a biased creator of left wing conspiracies and propaganda. What it will do however is serve as a single ‘proof’ that Trump’s tweets are not ‘conspiracy theories’ anymore than the fake impeachment is a conspiracy theory. Actually it’s the Democrats who are the authors of ‘conspiracy theories’ such as Osama Bin Laden is responsible for 911, The Fake Trump Impeachment scandal, and a host of others. Anyway, it’s honorable that Project Veritas does this guerilla reporting but it’s shameful that’s what we’ve come to in USA. As we teach, this is the kind of media control exists in countries like Russia, China, and others – where anti-government provocateurs must resort to such ridiculous maneuvers such as hidden cameras. (For an example of a similar political activist in Russia that’s exposing the corruption of the government there in a fair and honest way, see navalny.com translate to English.)
Now there’s Ed Buck, reportedly a pervert with a “thing” for getting young black male prostitutes high through date-rape drugs and involuntary meth injections, with a second dead body turning up in one of his apartments yesterday. The first death a year and a half ago resulted in the cops letting it be called an “accidental” overdose, as gay and lesbian activists argued something worse seemed to be happening. There certainly were cries that Buck was let off easy because of his $53,000 in political donations to Democrats…. Since Schiff is so loud about wanting to “Get Trump,” maybe it’s time for him to start answering some questions about this most important of his campaign donors and why he has allowed himself to go into political debt to such a person.
Jerome Corsi, a right-wing journalist for the conspiracy theory website Infowars, returned to the “Lionel Nation” program today to discuss his latest effort to “decode” the cryptic postings of an anonymous internet user known only as “Q,” which he claimed reveal that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff may be being blackmailed over alleged involvement in pedophilia. Corsi has recently dedicated himself full-time to covering the cryptic postings of an anonymous 8Chan forum board poster known as “Q,” whom some right-wing activists believe to be a high-ranking official within the Trump administration—or possibly even President Trump himself. Q’s posts are at the center of a fringe right-wingconspiracy theory known as “The Storm,” which alleges that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is really a cover for President Trump’s efforts to take down thousands of corrupt political, business and entertainment leaders who are part of a massive satanic pedophile ring. Relying on recent posts from Q, Corsi attempted to tie Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee and leading critic of a recently released memo regarding surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, to the sprawling conspiracy theory. Corsi alleged that Schiff had ties to three people who died in a recent helicopter crash, all of whom were “associated with the Standard Hotel, a trendy, gay-friendly hotel located in Schiff’s district in West Hollywood, California.” Offering absolutely no evidence to substantiate anything he said, Corsi reported that “a pedophilia ring” was being run out of this hotel and now “you’ve got Schiff being involved, perhaps, with blackmail, there is possibly pedophilia, all of which has been suggested by QAnon as the subject of research.”
Now here is where things get interesting. So we know that the deep-state is tied to the Occult. If Schiff does have something dirty to hide in his hometown district, or a secret predilection of Chocolate, this would be a legitimate reason to use him as a pawn. He’s likely being blackmailed (Not to be confused with BlackMaled) which explains his brash and irrational behavior. Probably he’s been tasked to ‘get it done, Impeach him – whatever the cost’ or we’re going to let loose all the facts of your dirty secrets.
A criminal complaint by federal investigators against Edward Buck outlines claims of a history of predatory behavior against gay men by the LGBT activist and Democratic megadonor, resulting in rape, drug overdoses, and even deaths.
Although Buck is currently only being charged with distribution of methamphetamine resulting in death, the 20-page filing by authorities describes numerous instances of vulnerable gay men, many black, who found themselves drugged against their will and sodomized. Most of the nine men who spoke to investigators say they were initially lured to Buck’s residence on promises of money and free drugs.
The news agency “Washington Examiner” has an article about Ed Buck titled “Slave Master” and underneath the title, an ad for Kamala Harris, who took money from Slave Master. In the ad, it says Harris will be a ‘tough prosecutor’ – why was Ed Buck not vetted and/or prosecuted?
This far into impeachment poker, the cards are down and dirty as so’s Adam Schiff in his closet gay playground in West Hollywood. The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee turns out to be a back-door man on the receiving end when it comes to secret weapons shipments to Ukraine and a helicopter crash arranged to cover-up his role in the death of a black gay lover in West Hollywood. Recently returned from a long stint in East Asia, I’ve been surprised, although not stunned, to discover Schiff’s bug eyes must’ve have protruded due to those L.A. rams, the black sheep with the rough trade out of Maxine Waters’ district of Compton and Watts, aka Pizzagate West.
The home-field for the Ukraine controversy is inextricably linked to drugged-out interracial gay homicides in Southern California, as exemplified by his fellow Democrat Ed Buck, pinned to the meth-overdose deaths of three black male sex partners, and as we discover more recently Congressman Adam Schiff, who is suspected of arranging the disposal by acid bath of a black gay lover flushed into the sewer at the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood. Further below Schiff’s criminal ties with a Jewish Ukrainian gun-runner, a Democratic Party funder whose fleet of airships conduct 24X7 surveillance over the US-Mexico border without any objections from the Dem Hispanic caucus or AOC-plus-3. California’s the hip place, as in hypocrisy.
The R44 Raven helicopter that crashed on three houses in Newport Beach shortly before 2 p.m. on 30 January 2018 did not emit a distress signal, according to the FAA, as it tumbled out of the sky a mile from takeoff at John Wayne Airport. The three passengers killed en route to Catalina Island were Kimberly Lynn Watzman, manager of the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood; Brian Reichelt, the hotel chain’s regional financial manager; and Spain-born Joseph Anthony Tena, CEO of the Ferrada Group, which owned shares in the Standard Hotels chain. Tena’s business partner was Andre Balazs, the founder of the Standard Hotel chain and a pioneer in high-end boutique hotels.
The helicopter had been inspected by an FAA team during the past summer resulting in installation of new parts, meaning the helicopter was in good condition. The 4-seat Robinson-built aircraft was leased by Revolution Aviation, a local flight school and touring company, from Eric Spitzer, who owns 70 helicopters operated out of Riverside County, who otherwise has zero biographical record or company history.
Another Jewish Predator
Which gets to Andre Balazs, who is the son of Endre Balazs, a Hungarian Jew who resided unscathed in Budapest, just like George Soros and his father, while conducting “medical research” throughout the Nazi period before moving in 1947 to Stockholm and then on to Harvard, Boston Biomedical and then Columbia Presbyterian hospital. Andre’s first job was as press secretary to the sex scandal mired Bess Meyerson, the postwar Jewish poster girl. Living off his father’s fortune from developing hyalauric acid for knee-joint problems, Andre patronized heroin-addicted artist Andy Warhol and invested in the 1980s Manhattan dinner club M.K. and the LA supper club, b.c., where the main item off the menu was a line of cocaine.
Then in the late-1980s, Balazs founded the Standard chain, a thinly covered establishment for bonking Craig’s List girls and Tinder dates and being bonked by rough boys. All along, he cultivated a reputation for public groping that rivals Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, likely to cover a growing connoisseurship for the gay lifestyle, as expressed in the aesthetics of his Standard operations in California and the Chiltern Firehouse hotel in London.
Balazs, with his connections to drug lords and foreign politicians, including many from Israel, had Adam Schiff by the balls after the death of a young black male in the West Hollywood Standard. Hotel manager Kim Waltzman, 47 years old at the time of the helicopter crash, was an adventurer who loved nothing more than traveling to remote parts of the world and stood to gain early retirement by squeezing Balazs with the threat of exposing Schiff’s murderous “accident” in a Standard bed. Thereafter the helicopter jaunt to Catalina Island with the corporate financial officer Brian Reichelt, aboard to sign the nondisclosure agreement on behalf of Balazs, does make perfect sense, and so does the mysterious crash that killed both of them.
Ed Buck was not as lucky as Schiff, mainly because he injected his homeless black victims inside his own living room in West Hollywood’s gay quarters. Now get this: Buck, Schiff and California Democratic Party Chair Eric Baum were simultaneously board members of the Stonewall Democratic Club, the LGBT political caucus. The predilection for dark meat makes Pizzagate West more rancid than the original cheesy sausage-filled Podesta concoction, although both scandals involve the same players Marina Abramovic and Jimmy Alefantis in hipster Balatz’s social circle. Tony Podesta hosted a 2009 fund-raising reception for Adam Schiff at this art-packed home in Washington D.C.
Dragon UFOs over Ukraine
Out next East European Jewish high-flyer on the Schiff List is his constituent and campaign fundraiser Igor Pasternak, the Ukrainian gun-runner and blimp producer for DARPA and CIA special ops. Congressman Schiff’s Igor is a major investor, tech transfer agent and delivery service for UkrOboronProm (UOP), a Ukrainian arms company, which produces automatic rifles based on the AR-15 called the WAC-47 for use by the armies of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania, even though it’s street-illegal in America, you shifty Democrat supports of gun control! Considering the history of Ukrainian arms-transfers, it won’t be long before the WAC-47 will be whacking villagers in Africa and Latin America. The Obama-era Pentagon financed the design and production of this assault rifle with ammo compatible with the M-16 and NATO firearms in order to wean the Ukrainians off their home-built AK-47s.
Igor Pasternak’s blimp company Worldwide Aeros, based at the U.S. Marine Corps airfield in Tustin, CA (near San Bernadino), has received millions in grants from DARPA and other Pentagon agencies to develop an airship used for surveillance on the borders of Ukraine-Russia and Mexico-USA, another excellent achievement for Democrat hypocrisy. Who needs a wall when sky “Dragons” as these military airships are called suffice as infrared camera mounts and, when the right time comes, firing platforms for Gatling guns. Do you recall all the news stories about UFOs snake-dancing in the night sky? Those are Aeros Dragons, linked together like flying train cars.
The 2013 campaign fundraiser for Rep. Adam Schiff at the Montebello mansion of Igor Pasternak, with donations by the invited starting at S2,500, is by now infamous, an outright payback from an arms dealer in exchange for contracts from the Defense Department. Schiff is well-known in Southern California as a Pentagon slut, connecting the military, NSA and CIA with the Pasadena-based defense contractor Parsons Corporation. Among its finest achievements under a U.S. government contract was to decommission the Libyan chemical-weapons facilities, which were dismantled for export to Ukraine, while barrels of lethal product ended up in the hands of ISIS rebels in Syria. Parsons botched a Pentagon contract in the wake of the Iraq invasion to build dozens of medical clinics, completing only two centers, both beset by basic design flaws, and then absconding with the money.
After mismanagement of a road construction project for CalTrans (Calfornia State’s transportation authority), Parsons fell into a deep financial hole but was saved through lucrative DARPA contracts arranged by Rep. Schiff, enabling takeovers of taxpayer-funded DARPA spin-offs Polaris Alpha (artificial intelligence command of complex battlefields), QRC (AI for special operations and Navy SEALS). and OGSystems (imaging and data analytics). These transactions for lethal weaponry in Ukraine and here in the USA prove with an iota of doubt that Adam Schiff is a merchant of death, the Joker himself who is now out to character-assassinate President Donald Trump.
Yet there is one death that still haunts him, the young black man who suffered a drug-induced seizure while pumping the congressman’s rump at the Standard Hotel, just a few blocks from the home of Ed Buck.
What’s in a Surname?
Before ridding my desktop of all traces of Adam the Shifty, allow me to examine the family names Schiff and Pasternak in my usual manner of leaving no obscure detail untended.
Rep. Adam Schiff is not a descendant of the war-criminal banker Jacob Shiff whose family was based in Frankfurt, Germany, as part of the occult movement led by Jacob Frank, which explains the congressman’s constant money-grubbing from the vilest sort of funders in exchange for services rendered. His family origins are in Vilnius, Lithuania, a long-time historical center for anti-Russian warmongering. This anti-Russian campaign of invasion and subversion came to a head with the appearance of the third “False Dimitry”, a Lithuanian Jewish vagabond who claimed to be Tsar Dimitry Ivanovich. The bold-faced liar rallied Cossacks to his cause with the promise of looting the cathedral of Moscovy, then ruled by the Tatar paladin Boris Gudonov. The Jewish faker send cavalrymen to assassinate the legitimate Russian ruler, Mikhail the founder of the Romanov dynasty. After falling out of God’s grace, Dimitry was captured and then executed, his physical remains scattered to prevent his brain-washed followers from worshiping his bones. This is a parable for the mind-addled Democrats who accept all the falsehoods from Adam Schiff’s mouth. They who deceive spin the lies you believe.
Igor Pasternak’s surname has resonance being that of Boris Pasternak, author of “Dr. Zhivago”, the romantic tale of love (with the fallen heroine Lara). Aside from this novel, which perhaps did not deserve a Nobel Prize due to its retrogressive sentimentality, author Pasternak translated the works of Goethe, the leading Illuminati of the 19th century who warned of his youthful obsession with sorcery in the novel “Faust”. The Russian writer was involved in Russian Futurism, a movement whose painters indulged in the Goethe-Illuminati theory of light and colors, reflection being a core concept of Luciferian reception (of inner light).
The Grand Lodge of the Orient headquartered in France had a widespread Russian following in lodges since at least the mid-19th century among Russian officers returning from the post-Napoleonic occupation of Paris.The Grand Lodge of Ukraine was revived in the mid-1980s by Juliano di Bernardo, the grand master of the Italian Grand Lodge of the Orient and later received recognition from the central Grand Lodge of the Orient. The rationalist Freemasons in the English-speaking realm may have misgivings about the strange doctrines of the Grand Lodge of the Orient (meaning the East, in the direction of Morning Star, Lucifer) and their deep dark secrecy is due to the fact that the Grand Orient lodge does not stipulate belief in God or the Deity as the Supreme Being, as do American and British lodges, but instead worships Lucifer as the ruler of the Universe.
Igor Pasternak, although born in Soviet Kazahkstan, probably of a Jewish family evacuated by Stalin to Siberia, is not a descendant of the illustrious Pasternak clan of Moscow, but is a normal grubby Odessa Jew. The surname translates from Russian as “parsnip”, a white carrot. His interest in “lighter than air” vehicles is not original or new, since the former USSR designed and constructed dozens of dirigibles before and during World War II. Like his Russian and Ukrainian predecessors, Pasternak has followed a “crash and burn” model of development, causing delays and cost overruns that forced him into gun-running and hustling his local congressman for defense contracts. If the mishaps at liftoff continue, Igor Pasternak could soon end up like Schiff’s black stud, down the drain.
ADAM SCHIFF Derailed Murder Investigation Of Gemmel Moore’s Death In ED BUCK’s Meth Drug Den
Ed Buck Democrat gay rights leader and money man, whose West Hollywood meth drug den was the scene of not one, but two overdose deaths of black men is finally locked up.
Why did it take so long?
Because of the elitist white male, California politicians who deliberately sabotaged and prolonged the investigation for over two years. A Los Angeles Federal Judge has set a tentative trial date of November 26th.
WATCH THE VIDEO: Learn how Congressman (D) Adam Schiff was behind the cover-up. Watch the video to see how racist the entire WEHO sex meth death scandal was handled.
The video reveals the conspiracy and cover-up by West Hollywood and California politicians. John Duran, Ed Buck’s attorney, and a close friend didn’t hide the fact he wanted the Gemmel Moore murder investigation sidetracked at a West Hollywood City Council meeting.
Duran was also looking out for Congressman Adam Schiff and Los Angeles City Tax Assessor and former West Hollywood Councilman Jeffrey Prang, who is now under investigation for giving tax benefits to wealthy, connected Democrats.
CW: John Duran, Ed Buck, Adam Schiff, and Eric Bauman hanging out in West Hollywood; Duran, Schiff, Bauman, Prang; Buck and Prang; Schiff and Buck.
Schiff and Prang were friends with Buck and intimately involved in Southern California Democrat politics, especially socially in the West Hollywood area, which is in Schiff’s district. Eric Bauman, former gay chair of the California Democrat Party, was also with John Duran in sabotaging the Ed Buck investigation. Bauman, who was best friends with Buck, instructed politicians not to cooperate with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department inquiry.
Bauman continued to obstruct the investigation until late December 2018 when he was forced to resign after allegations of racism, sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior toward male party staff members and activists.
First, The New York Times tried to minimize Buck’s power and influence by referring to him as “a small-time Democratic donor and political activist.”
That’s like calling Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein “lovesick teenagers.”
Buck Contributed $500,000 to Democrat Candidates.
According to federal records, Buck has contributed more than $500,000 to Democratic candidates and groups, and was classified by the California Secretary of State’s office as being a “major donor.”
Before he was nicknamed ‘Dr. Kevorkian’, Buck could have easily gone by Ed ‘Big Bucks’ with all of the campaign cash he was throwing around.
Second, it has been reported in multiple publications that the politicians and political action committees who took contributions from Buck acted quickly to distance themselves from him. West Hollywood politicians, Duran and D’Amico, took thousands of dollars from Buck. They knew about this fetish and drug operation on Laurel Avenue just off the Sunset Strip.
When Evo Morales, first became Bolivia’s president in 2006, his first challenge was to tackle the country’s extreme poverty. As the nation’s first indigenous leader he implemented various social policies and programs managing to keep steady financial growth despite an economic crisis in the region.
“Americas Now” anchor Elaine Reyes had the rare opportunity to sit down with President Morales. They discussed many things from sovereignty and the future of the region to Bolivia’s ties with China. President Morales also addressed Bolivia’s fight to regain access to the Pacific Ocean. Check out this interview with Evo Morales who is seeking his fourth term in office. He looks back at the past and answers questions about Bolivia’s future.
