Word has reached me from Washington that the FBI has reopened the Hillary case of her violation of US National Security protocols, not because of the content of the new email releases, but because voter support for Trump seems to be overwhelming, while Hillary has cancelled appearances due to inability to muster a crowd. The popular vote leaves the FBI far out on the limb for its corrupt clearance of Hillary. The agency now has to redeem itself.

I myself do not know what precisely to think. Having been at the top of the Washington hierarchy for a quarter century, I have seen many mistaken judgments. At one time I had subpoena power over the CIA and was able to inform President Reagan that the CIA had misled him. He took note and proceeded with his policy of ending the Cold War with the Soviets. On other issues I have been mistaken, because I assumed that there was more integrity in government than actually exists.

However, FBI director Comey did not need to reopen the case against Hillary simply because some new incriminating emails appeared. Having dismissed the other incriminating evidence, these emails could have passed unremarked.

The problem for the FBI, which once was a trusted American institution, but no longer is, is that there is no longer any doubt that Donald Trump will win the popular vote for president of the United States. His appearances are so heavily attended that thousands are turned away by local fire/occupancy regulations. In contrast, Hillary has curtailed her appearances, because she doesn’t draw more than 30 or 40 people.

Americans are sick to death of the corrupt Clintons and the corrupt American media. The Clintons are so completely bought-and-paid-for by the Oligarchy that they were able to outspend Hollywood on their daughter’s wedding, dropping $3,000,000 on the event.

Nevertheless, I don’t underestimate the power of the Oligarchy. As Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury I experienced the Oligarchy’s power. If I had not been backed by the President of the United States, I would have been destroyed.

Indeed, the Oligarchy is still trying to destroy me.

Possibly Trump, as his enemies allerge, is just another fake, like Obama who misled the electorate. However, Trump attacks the Oligarchy so strongly that it is hard to believe that Trump isn’t real. Trump is asking for a bullet like John F. Kennedy, like Robert Kennedy, like Martin Luther King, like George Wallace.

In Amerika, dissidents are exterminated.

Trump is up against voting machines over which he has no control. If there are no INDEPENDENT exit polls, Trump can easily be robbed of the election, as the Texas early voting scandal indicates, with the electronic machines assigning Trump votes to Hillary. The “glitch” doesn’t assign any Hillary votes to Trump.


My expectation is that, unless Trump’s popular vote is so overwhelming, the electoral collage vote will be stolen. Because of the absence of any valid reporting by the presstitutes, I don’t know what impact the orchestrated election of Hillary would have on the electorate. Possibly, Americans will break out of The Matrix and take to the streets.

I beleve that Hillary in the Oval Office would convince the Russians and the Chinese that their national survival requires a pre-emptive nuclear attack on the crazed, insane government of the United States, the complete narcisstic state that in the words of Hillary and Obama is “the exceptional, indispensible country,” empowered by History to impose its will on the world. This crazed American agenda is not something that Russia and China will accept.

Here is Donald Trump speaking to Americans in words Americans have been waiting to hear:

Notice that Trump doesn’t need teleprompters.

I do not agree with Trump on many issues, but the American people do. For me and for the world, the importance of Trump is the prospect of peace with Russia. Nuclear war makes every other problem irrelevant.

If Hillary is installed by the Oligarchy—this is a word used by former Democratic President Jimmy Carter who said that the US is no longer a functioning democracy but is ruled by an Oligarchy—war with Russia and China will be upon us.

After 15 years the Taliban and ISIS still run wild in the Middle East despite the efforts of the American “superpower.” Unable to defeat a few lightly armied Taiban after 15 years, what prospects does the enfeebled US have of winning a conflict with Russia and China?

None whatsoever.

The United States has had an entire generation of people born into a war for which the purpose is inexplicable. Why these wars? Why this endless slaughter of women and children and endless columns of refugees overwhelming all of Europe desperately striving to escape Washington’s wars of world hegemony. Why do not the total dumbshits in Washington hear when the President of Russia says that “Russia can no longer tolerate the state of affairs that Washington has created in the world.”

The unjustified arrogance of Washington, a washed up Third World State, is likely to destroy life on earth. No greater danger to life exists than Washington. We have to hope that Trump can clean out the Augean Stables.

  1. Except for agreeing with Trump on almost every major policy I could not agree more with what you have just written. Comey is clearly trying to back the expected winner. All the data (except the phony polls — I did graduate work in survey research under Leslie Kish and can tell bad sampling when I see it.) suggest Trump is immensely popular with the electorate and is going to cream Hillary Clinton. The establishment will scruple at nothing – including assassination – to stop him. The biggest single issue that unites the informed electorate in this election cycle is that Clinton is frighteningly bellicose and apparently is driven by a desire to start WW III.

  2. There are several possible reasons for Comey’s turnabout. The one I am going with for now is that, someone put pressure on Comey to let Hillary off the hook. Probably the Bush crime family through its retainers. He didn’t like being ill used and now feels free for some reason to get his revenge.

    The American people are like horses trapped in a burning building. Once they get a shot at daylight, they will stampede for it hell-for-leather.

    Comey just opened the door.

    Plausible. I don’t know exactly why Comey made the announcement. For that we’ll have to stay tuned. In the interim it should be noted that the people under him were known to be almost unanimous in their anger at the way in which Clinton got let off the hook. I have a faint suspicion that the people under him may have descended upon him “en masse ” and demanded that he either make the announcement or they were going to leak it out. I mentioned this to a friend who replied that they would have been fired if they did this. Maybe, if it only involves a few people. However, the opposition to how he handled the email “investigation” may very well have been legion, so much so that Comey may have sensed that a palace revolt was coming, because the FBI would not only be turning on him but also, by implication, the Justice Department, not to mention Obama. This poses a nightmarish scenario which he may have had no choice but to circumvent.

  4. This article is full of examples of why I continue to read PCR, who tells it like it is.

    Why do not the total dumbshits in Washington hear…?

    Because they’re dumbshits who have access to unthinkable sums of ill gained wealth, and no accountability. Deadly combination, I think.

  5. Rehmat says:

    Whose interests does James Comey serve? In April 2015, James Comey revealed that he had made it mandatory for FBI recruits to visit Washington’s Holocaust Museum…..

  6. I think I see rats leaving a sinking ship. Could be wishful thinking of course.

  7. Millions of years and hardly any change.

    Humans and monkeys share Machiavellian intelligence

    “Alpha males, who rule the 50 or so macaques in the troop, use threats and violence to hold on to the safest sleeping places, the best food, and access to the females in the group with whom they want to have sex. Like human dictators intent on holding power, dominant monkeys use frequent and unpredictable aggression as an effective form of intimidation. Less powerful members of the rhesus macaque group are marginalized and forced to live on the edges of the group’s area, where they are vulnerable to predator attacks. They must wait for the others to eat first and then have the leftovers; they have sex only when the dominant monkeys are not looking.”

    “Struggles for power within a group sometimes culminate in a revolution, in which all members of the most dominant family are suddenly attacked by entire families of subordinates. These revolutions result in drastic changes in the structure of power within rhesus societies, not unlike those occurring following human revolutions. There is one situation, however, in which all of the well-established social structure evaporates: when a group of rhesus macaques confronts another one and monkey warfare begins. Rhesus macaques dislike strangers and will viciously attack their own image in a mirror, thinking it’s a stranger threatening them. When warfare begins, “Even a low-ranking rhesus loner becomes an instant patriot. Every drop of xenophobia in rhesus blood is transformed into fuel for battle,” Maestripieri wrote.”

    Too many spelling errors. It hurts your argument with the people you need to convince. I’m already on your side.

  9. It should be obvious why the investigation was reopened. The FBI Director assured Congress there was no evidence in these e-mails. Thousands of Clinton e-mails have been illegally withheld from Congress by Clinton and Obama’s FBI. Watch this interesting short video of a Congressmen berating an FBI representative at a recent hearing for refusing to turn over e-mails.

    It is obvious that these e-mails are not withheld because of their national security content, but revelations of illegal activities, corruption, and incompetence. Congressmen can read top secret information, but face criminal prosecution if they leak it. What if they leak information about criminal activity that is not related to national security? They might be prosecuted, but that would only draw more attention and is unlikely to result in a conviction.

    That video shows Congress issuing a subpoena to hand over all these e-mails. So the Director decides to announce “new” evidence was found in them, just before Congress gets a peek.

    Go ahead and point them out, it will help you feel important.

  12. Officially the FBI is saying they have not looked at those emails in Weiners computer yet…..give me a brake… they have seen some and that is why the announcement was made…..

  13. 22pp22 says:

    No, it wouldn’t, but a badly spelled article weakens the argument it contains.

    very nice haiku.

  15. Muse says:

    Perhaps Mr. Comey was looking at being charged with obstruction of justice by a US Atty from a field office if he continued to hinder the investigation of the Clintons and their foundation.

  16. Here’s how this might play out: Huma might look like she is on her way to being thrown under the bus, but at some point next week Carlos Danger will have “found his conscience” and will be found dead by his own hand with a note absolving her and HRC by claiming it was a scheme on his part to take revenge on her and the Clintons for having thrown him under the bus.

  17. Roberts:

    “Americans are sick to death of the corrupt Clintons and the corrupt American media. The Clintons are so completely bought-and-paid-for by the Oligarchy that they were able to outspend Hollywood on their daughter’s wedding, dropping $3,000,000 on the event.”

    True enough. Of course, if The Pantsuited One is elected (whether by fair means or foul!), it’ll serve to confirm H. L. Mencken’s observation that nobody went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people. . . .
