-Land of the Free
Will President Trump Finish What JFK Set Out To Do?
A taste:
[The Marshall Report] On April 27th 1961, JFK delivered a speech about "Secret Societies." The speech was delivered at the American Newspaper Publishers Association in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Here are some highlights, the full speech is in the video and a link to the full transcript below article excerpts.

After first relaying the story of Karl Marx and all the "isms" created from his writings, he went on to speak of the Presidents versus the press and the lack of privacy it lends. He then spoke on the topic he called a more sober one, of concern to publishers as well as editors.

John F. Kennedy: (Excerpt)

My topic tonight is a more sober one, of concern to publishers as well as editors. I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a common danger. The events of recent weeks may have helped to illuminate that challenge for some, but the dimensions of its threat have loomed large in the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future, for reducing this threat, or living with it, there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its’ challenge to our survival and to our security, a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity. This deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern both to the press and to the president. Two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone, but which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril.

I refer first to the need for far greater public information, and second, to the need for far greater official secrecy.

The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.

We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it’s in my control, and no official of my administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to sensor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes, or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

President Trump said the day he came down the escalator to announce his run for the presidency that, "I know their agenda and it is not mine." I, and many other Americans knew exactly what he meant. He was not for Agenda 21 New World Order. He was not for it then, and he isn’t for it now. He has worked diligently and tirelessly to RESET their great RESET. I believe he is restoring all things to the original intent of the initial cause of the Founding Fathers.

President Trump has revealed to the people what he was doing as he was doing it and before he did it at his rallies to get their feedback. Why? To see if this was what "We The People" wanted. He has always asked for our opinion before he acted on a matter other than national security issues which were in full charge of our military under his command as Commander In Chief. The media was full of lies and spin forbidding the truth to be told, therefore, President Trump spoke to the people via other means of transparent communication such as Twitter, Facebook and had Dan Scavino keep us all up to date on Periscope, Instagram and all forms of social media. Emails and surveys were sent out directly to the people to ask whether they did or did not support certain issues. Our feedback was always sought, gathered, read, and utilized. The cabal hated him for it and We The People loved him for it.

Think about it.

We already have; Social Media, the Social & Political Elites, Hollywood, various Billionaires and others TELLING US what to do. They control what we see, read and how it is accessed. They control what we can buy, own and use.

It seems every time they want or need to apply greater restrictions, we have a perfectly tuned "Incident" that addresses their control problem and gathers the MSM info spoon fed masses in to a collective Group Think mob.

Then Social Media "gleans" any comments pointing out discrepancies to the "Incident". Then the Search Engines steer and promote their narrative, or avoid or bury opposing search results. eg. LV shooter, Sandy Hooks, Trump Election Fraud, Trump/Russia Coup attempt, anonymous sources Murdered to protect DC elite or a "Incident Narratives", hangings in jail and many more.

To me that sounds more like Master/Minion Control Social ranking. Because it certainly does NOT sound like the Individualistic FREEDOMS guaranteed by the US Bill of Rights. OUR Rights, that they have clearly said they seek to Re-Write/Up-Date to allow their Great Social Reset agenda (Socialism)?

BTW: Now we even have a fired for cause Ex-National INTEL Agency Dir. OPENLY calling for the arrest and internment of US Citizens. Whose "crime" is verbally demanding our Government follow and adhere to our, the Citizens guaranteed US Bill of Rights.

#3  /\ If you install a president who is already brain dead, you save a lot on ammo, investigative commissions, and report writing.

#4  How much input did the See-I-Aye have in creating FB, Twitter, and other social media? Just asking for a friend who wants to know.

#5  The plan in April of 1961 was that US air power and the 82nd Airborne if necessary, would support the DRF and the invasion. Kennedy did not follow the plan.

'The release of six decades of fear': Egypt's lost revolution
Long piece from the Guardian.
25 January 2011 marked the start of Hosni Mubarak’s fall but also moves by the military to take over.
They experimented with real democracy, discovered that under current conditions it led to the so-called Moderate Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood, and almost the entire population repudiated it. Hopefully the next time they try, they manage to keep political Islam far from power and influence. That’s how science works.

Why Biden's immigration plan may be risky for Democrats
[AlAhram] As one of his first acts, Biden offered a sweeping immigration overhaul that would provide a path to US citizenship for the estimated 11 million people who are in the US illegally

#1  I hear so many different estimates of how many illegal aliens are in this country. Is it 11 million? 20? 30? 100?

I once heard of a senator, can't remember which one, who said our goal should be a population of 600 million people in the United States. That would almost put us on par with India and China. Then I hear that Biden has plans for vast affordable housing projects to be built in American suburbs. Where does he think the people will come from to occupy all that so-called affordable housing? Who will pay for it and how?

And so "1984" has been ushered in 36 years late.

#3  I was flipping channels a few nights ago and one of the movers and shakers from Reagan's time was on. He said that back then %90 of the Senators were alcoholics and that it was worse now!

Ponder that then look at any issue with an alcoholic haze.

#4  now 90% or more appear to be Sexaholics. You know that payoff slush fund is still there. Just under another name.
