Clinton Campaign and DNC To Pay Fine For Concealing Payments For Anti-Trump Steele Dossier, at justthenews.com.

So we find out five years later, what we all knew was true. The Steele Dossier was propaganda that was either purchased without knowledge that it was false, or the payment was for the production of this propaganda. So the propaganda was either paid for after it was produced, or the production of the propaganda happened after the payment. And the Media was driving the get away car for the Clinton Campaign. They ignored what we knew from the start. But here is what really irks me.

The punishment meted out by Federal Election Commission was: “The Clinton Campaign agreed to pay an $8,000 fine while the DNC agreed to pay $105,000, and both promised not to violate the requirements in the future.” So they “agreed” to pay what amounts to “walking around money”. That is like me paying a fine of ten cents for a speeding ticket! That isn’t enough to keep me from speeding again. But they also “promised” they wouldn’t do it again. They are laughing at this. the Clintons and the DNC should have said, “Here is a check for double the amount, to prepay the fine for the next time we do this. The legal system is a joke. Different rules for insiders than outsiders.

-Bipartisan Senate Group Presses FBI Over Agents Broke Rules Hundreds Of Times, at justthenews.com.

Lets say it like it is. The FBI is really the KGB. Just another example of bureaucrats abusing their power.

Here is a quote from the article: “Senate Judiciary Chair Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Judiciary Ranking member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote letters Monday pressing the Department of Justice for answers after an internal FBI audit found that agents violated rules at least hundreds of times over a year and a half.

If there were that many violations, “found” (how many have not been found?), in a year and a half. How many violations do you think occurred over the last five years? Especially knowing about what the FBI, aka (KGB), the CIA and The Justice Department did with the Russian collusion farce. Do you think the Justice department has any interest in investigating an entity that they helped break the law?

Ex-CIA Official Who Signed Letter Warning Hunter Biden Laptop Story Was Disinfo Proud Trump Lost, at justthenews.com.

If we call the FBI the KGB. We should call The CIA the GRU. The GRU was the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Soviet Union. Its job was to collect and handle military and political intelligence from sources outside the Soviet Union. So the FBI and KGB deal with domestic intelligence. And the CIA and GRU deal with foreign intelligence. Our FBI and CIA are corrupt bureaucracies. They are abusing their power.

This CIA official lied when he said the Hunter laptop looked like Russians were involved. Just as the FBI lied when they pushed the Steele Dossier. Nothing will happen. These agencies and the Justice department are protecting each other.

IRS Gave $64 Million In Stimulus Checks To Dead People Report, at justthenews.com.

Another example of the inefficiencies of bureaucracies. Public funded bureaucracies have no incentive to watch their bottom line, like businesses have to in the market.

I thought murder was already illegal!

CDC Ends Warning On Cruise Ship Travel, at justthenews.com.

Here is a quote from the article: “The agency said in announcing the change that taking a cruise will always pose some risk of COVID-19 transmission but “travelers will make their own risk assessment when choosing to travel on a cruise ship, much like they do in all other travel settings.”

Shouldn’t this have been the policy reguarding COVID from the start? Allow people to assess their own risk. If we would have done this, we wouldn’t be in the economic mess we are in right now. People want to blame our economic problems on COVID. But it was Governments response to COVID, not COVID, that blew up our economy.

TSA Announces Plans To Implement Gender-Neutral Screening At Airport Checkpoints, at justthenews.com.

I don’t know how to explain this. So lets just quote the article: “TSA also said the new standards will go into effect after the implementation of new technology that will in part replace the current, gender-based system, which will be more accurate and “advance civil rights and improve the customer experience of travelers who previously have been required to undergo additional screening due to alarms in sensitive areas.” But wait. There’s more: “Over the coming months, TSA will move swiftly to implement more secure and efficient screening processes that are gender neutral, as well as technological updates that will enhance security and make TSA PreCheck® enrollment more inclusive,” agency Administrator David Pekoske said. “These combined efforts will greatly enhance airport security and screening procedures for all.”

This should make the pat downs more enjoyable for everybody!

From the article. “Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak has reported on a 13-year-old straight-A piano prodigy charged with truancy in D.C. for taking ten days off to play on international concert stages.” Remember the above quote by George Washington, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force, like fire it is a dangerous servant, and a fearful master.

Texas Police Officers Shutdown Girls Lemonade Stand Because They Didn’t Get Health Permit, at huffingtonpost.com. These two young entrepreneurs learned a great lesson about what the greatest impediment to their success will be, government intervention. The good news is they did what we all do when it comes to government regulation, they found a way around it. The cop said this, We just have to enforce ’em, we don’t write ’em.” This is the problem. There laws regulating everything. Police Chief Clyde Carter stated this gem, “It’s illegal to sell lemonade without a permit. But we didn’t tell them to shut down, we just asked them to get a permit.” I have a question for Chief Carter. If they wouldn’t have gotten a permit, would you have shut them down or let them continue. I think verbal sleight of hand artist Chief Carter has a bright future in politics. “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force, like fire it is a dangerous servant…...”

House Approves New NSA Reform Measure, at districtsentinel.com. Representative Thomas Massie got his amendment concerning collusion between the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the NSA, and the CIA concerning encryption standards.

20 Years Later, Bill Clinton’s Home Ownership For America Is Dead, at zerohedge.com. Lowering lending standards created demand for borrowed money to purchase housing. The Federal Reserve supplied this demand with electronically printed counterfeit money. This brought future consumption into the present. What will replace this future consumption when its time comes? If you look at the chart in the article, you can see the government induced boom and corresponding bust. This boom and bust shows how real future consumption was moved forward in time, followed by less demand as the future became the present. A lot of future demand for goods and services was and is being used up by mortgage payments. Fed counterfeiting and Keynesian government spending distorts markets, enriches those who receive the counterfeit money first, and wastes scarce resources.
