An Open Letter to Bernie Voters – There are Alternatives to Clinton and Trump

Voting matters and the US has a multiplicity of parties to vote for other than the Big Two.

Samuel McCulloch




Dear Bernie Voters,

In what has been pretty much known already since March 15, Hillary Clinton will most probably be the democratic candidate for the president of the United States. After a protracted fight, you are now left to choose between a racist blowhard and a corporate schilling criminal. Oh what a time to be alive.

Your “choice” this election cycle will be the first white, obscenely rich, wife of a former president who is in a loveless dysfunctional marriage, probable criminal, but most importantly a woman for service in the highest office in America.

Most of you are young, but scandal has dogged the Clintons throughout their 30-year history. Leaving Bill Cosby Clinton’s transgressions aside, Hillary’s scandals throughout her career are too long to list here, but most recently, an IG report explicitly proved that she lied to the American public about her authorization to set up and run her email server outside of the State Department. More importantly, since the report was published, she has not offered an apology and has rather tried to spin the information as if the IG report was wrong in some effect.

Hillary isn’t going to change. Thirty years working at the federal level have molded her into the corporate schilling, Goldman Sachs pandering, say anything to get elected politician that she is. We all know this.

A lot of you would find it slightly stomach churning to cast your vote for her, but what better option do you have when Trump is on the other side of the ticket?

If you didn’t know already, Trump wants to systematically find, arrest and deport immigrants back to the brown countries they come from, whether it’s Mexico or the Middle East. Under his presidency, doors would be broken down in the middle of the night, families ripped apart, and actual Americans of Mexican or Islamic descent would have to start carrying documentation around with them at all times.

More so, 1.4 Billion people would be denied access to the “Land of the Free” based solely on their religion, most of whom don’t even look like the crazy Wahhabi Taliban ISIS folk that we are so hell bent on dropping bombs at the moment. In fact, most Muslims are based in Asia, where their countries are some of the most peaceful in the entire world.

Persecution of a people because of their race, no matter how much you spin it is blatant racism.

Additionally, the Donald has taken umbrage with decorated war veterans, advocates for eminent domain, called for journalists to be jailed, will increase surveillance on Americans, cares little for the environment, torturing women and children and a myriad of other policies which any other normal candidate would have been politically tarred and feathered for.

What Trump does offer is good television. In fact, great television. There has never been an entertainer who has capture the short attention span of millions of Americans so effectively and continuously. Trumps campaign is the political equivalent of the WWE, the living embodiment of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

Both candidates are equally despised. Both are extremely polarizing. Neither should be their respective parties’ presumptive candidate for president of the United States of America.

The rise of each is attributable to the polarizing identity politics of the last 40 years. Born out of the Vietnam war and the rise of the Conservative right, granular issues of race, class, religion and gender have come under the domain of the government and exploited for votes by both Republicans and Democrats. The two party system employed in the United States today creates those who are pro- and those which are anti, leaving no middle ground.

Where are Bernie voters like yourself to find a party that values the environment, deplores the cronyism of corporate capitalisms effect on government, will work for students and predatory student loan companies, fight against the ever growing power of Wall Street and ultimately provide equal fair rights to each of its citizens? Today’s two party system fails to provide for you. Wealth and Size buy power in our government, leaving the young and the poor without proper representation and incurring apathy and disdain in those who believe they have no alternative.

You have a choice though, just like the one you made to support a man who stood as a “democratic socialist” and who would fight against the Wall Street and the establishment. You may not know but other parties do exist; the Green, Libertarian, Constitution, Socialist, New Black Panthers, and Communist parties all provide different platforms for those who do not feel adequately represented by our fiercely controlled duopolistic current state of affairs.

Voting is important. It is the engine of democracy that drives the country forward. America’s collective choice significantly impacts every citizen on entire world, economically, militarily, socially, and environmentally. Yet the people who have been selected to lead next year are far from what you would want. If real change is to be had, think deeply about your own ideals, how you want to make others’ lives better and accept only someone who represents those ideals. Don’t abdicate to a racist or a criminal and stand up for yourself and your rights.

“Foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails (Video)

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx): Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails was hacked by foreign actor, and it was not Russia.

Alex Christoforou



A stunning revelation that hardly anyone in the mainstream media is covering.

Fox News gave Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) the opportunity to explain what was going on during his questioning of Peter Strzok, when the the Texas Congressman stated that a “foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Aside from this segment on Fox News, this story is not getting any coverage, and we know why. It destroys the entire ‘Russia hacked Hillary’ narrative.

Gohmert states that this evidence is irrefutable and shows that a foreign actor, not connected to Russia in any way, intercepted and distributed Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails.

As we sift through the ashes of Thursday’s dumpster-fire Congressional hearing with still employed FBI agent Peter Strzok, Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller plucked out a key exchange between Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) and Strzok which revealed a yet-unknown bombshell about the Clinton email case.

Nearly all of Hillary Clinton’s emails on her homebrew server went to a foreign entity that isn’t Russia. When this was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), IG Chuck McCullough sent his investigator Frank Ruckner and an attorney to notify Strzok along with three other people about the “anomaly.”

Four separate attempts were also made to notify DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to brief him on the massive security breach, however Horowitz “never returned the call.” Recall that Horowitz concluded last month that despite Strzok’s extreme bias towards Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump – none of it translated to Strzok’s work at the FBI.

In other words; Strzok, while investigating Clinton’s email server, completely ignored the fact that most of Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity – while IG Horowitz simply didn’t want to know about it.

Daily Caller reports…

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

Gohmert continued..

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia.”

Strzok admitted to meeting with Ruckner but said he couldn’t remember the “specific” content of their discussion.

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

According to Zerohedge “Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said – and Horowitz wouldn’t return the call.

And while Peter Strzok couldn’t remember the specifics of his meeting with the IG about the giant “foreign entity” bombshell, he texted this to his mistress Lisa Page when the IG discovered the “(C)” classification on several of Clinton’s emails – something the FBI overlooked:

“Holy cow … if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”

In November of 2017, IG McCullough – an Obama appointee – revealed to Fox News that he received pushback when he tried to tell former DNI James Clapper about the foreign entity which had Clinton’s emails and other anomalies.

Instead of being embraced for trying to expose an illegal act, seven senators including Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) wrote a letter accusing him of politicizing the issue.

“It’s absolutely irrelevant whether something is marked classified, it is the character of the information,” he said. Fox News reports…

McCullough said that from that point forward, he received only criticism and an “adversarial posture” from Congress when he tried to rectify the situation.

“I expected to be embraced and protected,” he said, adding that a Hill staffer “chided” him for failing to consider the “political consequences” of the information he was blowing the whistle on.

Donald Trump plays good cop and bad cop with a weak Theresa May (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 55.

Alex Christoforou



US President Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK was momentous, not for its substance, but rather for its sheer entertainment value.

Trump started his trip to the United Kingdom blasting Theresa May for her inability to negotiate a proper Brexit deal with the EU.  Trump ended his visit holding hands with the UK Prime Minister during a press conference where the most ‘special relationship’ between the two allies was once again reaffirmed.

Protests saw giant Trump “baby balloons” fly over London’s city center, as Trump played was his own good cop and bad cop to the UK PM, outside London at the Chequers…often times leaving May’s head spinning.

Even as Trump has left London, he remains front and center in the mind of Theresa May, who has now stated that Trump advised her to “sue” the European Union to resolve the tense negotiations over Brexit.

Trump had mentioned to reporters on Friday at a joint press conference with Theresa May that he had given the British leader a suggestion that she found too “brutal.”

Asked Sunday on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show what that suggestion was, May: “He told me I should sue the EU. Not go into negotiation, sue them.” May added…

“What the president also said at that press conference was `Don’t walk away. Don’t walk away from the negotiations. Then you’re stuck.”‘

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris summarize what was a state visit like no other, as Trump trolled the UK PM from beginning to end, and left London knowing that he got the better of a weakened British Prime Minister, who may not survive in office past next week.

It wasn’t exactly clear what Trump meant. The revelation came after explosive and undiplomatic remarks Trump made this week about May’s leadership — especially her handling of the Brexit negotiations — as he made his first official visit to Britain.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper published Thursday — just as May was hosting Trump at a lavish black-tie dinner — Trump said the British leader’s approach likely “killed” chances of a free-trade deal with the United States. He said he had told May how to conduct Brexit negotiations, “but she didn’t listen to me.”

He also praised May’s rival, Boris Johnson, who quit last week as foreign secretary to protest May’s Brexit plans. Trump claimed Johnson would make a “great prime minister.”

The comments shocked many in Britain — even May’s opponents — and threatened to undermine May’s already fragile hold on power. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the EU and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain’s biggest trading partner.

Deep State poster boy Peter Strzok gives bizarre testimony that goes viral (Video)

The face of the Deep State.

Alex Christoforou



If you were not convinced that the Deep State exists, then look no further than Peter Strzok’s bizarre, yet revealing, congressional testimony, showcasing the arrogance and smugness of a powerful FBI agent who worked diligently to push a fake Trump-Russia narrative onto the American public.

While Peter Strzok’s marathon Congressional testimony was full of bickering, chaos and drama – mostly between members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees – a clip of the disgraced FBI agent’s seemingly giddy reaction after answering a question is creeping people out.

Some have suggested that Strzok’s reaction was “Duper’s delight” – a hidden smirk that slips out at an inappropriate moment when a liar celebrates a successful manipulation.

Watching Peter Strzok, its hard, if not impossible to believe that this man is not a psychopath, who hated Trump so much that he was willing to forward a collusion story that has cost American taxpayers millions, and torn American society apart.

The video clip even had Donald Trump Jr retweeting it, as he labeled Strzok “the creepiest person in America.”

One particular moment from Peter Strzok’s raucous congressional hearing left Twitter users confounded and disturbed, even prompting Donald Trump Jr to label the FBI agent “the creepiest person in America.”

Strzok faced the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Thursday to answer questions about his conduct during the 2016 investigations into Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

The lengthy hearing quickly descended into a partisan shouting match, as Republicans and Democrats interrupted each other’s questions, heckling or applauding Strzok.

Strzok’s peculiar reaction to one question caught the eye of viewers and many took to Twitter to confirm that their eyes weren’t deceiving them.

Strzok’s facial expressions were also noticed by the congressmen in the room and prompted one of the most dramatic moments of the hearing when Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) accused Strzok of outright lying.

“I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk; how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page,” Gohmert told Strzok, referring to the agent’s extramarital affair with his former colleague Lisa Page, with whom he exchanged anti-Trump text messages. Gohmert’s comment sparked vociferous objections from Democrats.

The hearing evoked a significant reaction, with many describing it as a farce. Former New York mayor and current attorney to US President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, labelled it a “disgrace” and said it “taints the entire Mueller witch hunt.”

“President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him. All the results of the investigation are ‘fruit of the poison tree’ and should be dismissed,” he added.

Democrats seemed to agree with that sentiment, as California Congressman Ted Lieu said it was “a stupid and ridiculous hearing.”
