When the “biggest cheerleader” for maintaining the secretive FISA court knew just how abused the process really is, why would he and the rest of Congress want to keep it a secret from the citizens? And how much do they actually care about surveillance abuse of Americans?
By Rep. Ron Paul
The release of the House Intelligence Committee’s memo on the FBI’s abuse of the FISA process set off a partisan firestorm. The Democrats warned us beforehand that declassifying the memo would be the end the world as we know it. It was reckless to allow Americans to see this classified material, they said. Agents in the field could be harmed, sources and methods would be compromised, they claimed.
Republicans who had seen the memo claimed that it was far worse than Watergate. They said that mass firings would begin immediately after it became public. They said that the criminality of U.S. government agencies exposed by the memo would shock Americans.
Then it was released, and the world did not end. FBI agents have thus far not been fired. Seeing “classified” material did not terrify us, but rather it demonstrated (more…)
The true history of the fluoridation of water in the name of tooth decay prevention is coming out. As the mainstream media continues to lose its grip on the public’s throat with blatant and intentional fake news, the truth behind all of the lies touted are rising to the surface.
You’ve likely heard it before: “Just get the shot. Just take the medicine. It’s all in your best interest.” But some journalists are finally blowing holes in the government’s propaganda campaign and the media’s history of lying to us for profit. It isn’t just Mike Adams, the Health Ranger who has come out declaring the mainstream media nothing more than the propaganda arm of the deep state, but now John Rappaport is delivering evidence of the dishonesty behind the fluoridation campaign.
In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was (more…)

Source: ‘Sellout Schumer’ Shut Down the Government For Absolutely Nothing
Liberals upset at the government shutdown are now freaking out over the deal reached by politicians to reopen it. Activist groups were extremely angry at how the negotiations turned out with some are calling it the “#SchumerSellout.”
As the nation awoke, magically still here, moving into day three of the government shutdown, liberal advocates and immigration groups fired off a joint statement. The left-leaning groups blasted the Senate vote which cleared the first hurdle to reopen the government as “unacceptable.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer to merely hold a vote on immigration with no promises of action from the House or White House, in exchange for Democratic votes to reopen the government was offered to Democrats. Three hours later, Democratic senators agreed to just those terms sparking immense anger from the left.
“Millions of people flooded the streets of every major American city to stand up to Trump this weekend,” tweeted Leah Greenberg, the co-executive director of the influential activist network Indivisible. (more…)
