The Great Disconnect

Chaos is the mother of tyranny.  Chaos reigns when people operate in confusion and disorder.  It is a state in which behavior and events are not controlled by reason.  Today we are faced with a government and an elite controlled media that lie to the people and then lie about lying.  They operate as if the country is theirs to run and ruin for their own personal enrichment.  Chaos is a time like today when life makes little sense and we are force-fed such gobbledygook as the economy is booming, President Obama has outperformed Reagan when it comes to job creation and investment, inflation is under control, unemployment is at 4.9%.  Over here in reality we are fighting endless wars for peace, working people are being squeezed between stagnant wages and rising prices, and almost as many able-bodied people have dropped out of the workforce as there are people working.  This is chaos.  This is the seedbed of tyranny.

Our tyrants-in-training have captured the government and the economy, created a dependent class of motor-voters, convinced people that a continually growing debt is sustainable and turned the government into the one who picks winners and losers instead of a free economy.  The slow slide down a slippery slope has accelerated into a precipitous procession over a predictable precipice.  To those who have seen this coming it is like watching a slow motion train wreck.  The coming destruction is not mitigated in the least by decades of warning by the watchmen on the walls.

How is this evolving progression from individual freedom, personal liberty, and economic opportunity into a centrally-planned collectivist corporatist regime possible?  It is built upon the alliance of perpetually re-elected political hacks, crony capitalists, and corrupt unions aided and abetted by a sycophant media?

Why have the descendants of the Founders, the Framers, and the Revolution fallen for the same swan song that has led so many others before us down the primrose path to authoritarianism, totalitarianism, despotism, and collapse?  I believe it is because the average American has no frame of reference.  If we don’t know what has gone before how can we understand what is?  Or plan for what might be?

If we don’t know where we came from it is impossible to predict where we are going.  Therefore it is helpful to learn how the world became the way it is so that we can work to make it the way we think it should be, for without the past the present will never come into focus and the future will be nothing more than a mist that someone else will bring into focus.  History consists of perspectives from the present projected onto facts from the past.  While the facts are often disputed the perspectives tend to become quasi-religious dogma expressed as political opinions wherein the present uses the past to shape the future.  Examples would be increasing the minimum wage is good for the working poor, infrastructure stimulus is good for the economy, or preemptive war is good for peace.

An important thing to realize across the board in Historical studies is a truism often maligned and sometimes even used as an insult but true nonetheless, everyone is the center of their own world and everyone experiences life from where they stand, and all attempts to speak of “the” experiences of THE people are fabrications that may be agreed upon by scholars but has little relationship to what any one person may experience.

As we mature it is easier to gain an appreciation of History since we have an ever increasing personal experience with the past with which to analyze our present and to project our future.

America’s lack of historical perspective and lack of understanding the basics of civics and economics has led to what I call the Great Disconnect.  Here is the condition which we all encounter on a daily basis that exemplifies this educationally instilled mental pathology: How many people do you meet who vote for politicians diametrically opposed to everything they believe in?   From everything they say you would imagine they must vote for party X then you find out they are rabid supporters of party Y which is against everything they are for, and they can’t stand the politicians of party X which supports everything they believe in.  This is what I call the Great Disconnect.

A historical perspective is the antidote for this pathology.

In essence what I am talking about is using history to build a platform of the past to be a launching pad for the future.  We are currently mortgaging the future to pay for the excesses of today.  We are spending money that has not been earned by people who have not been born to subsidize the current creature comfort of those who don’t care who pays as long as they get what they want.  It is unfortunate for the generations of the future for they will be forced to live in a world that we have created.  Our parents conquered the world and left the nation inherited by the Boomers as the sole colossus who bestrides the tides of time.  We have wasted the accumulated wealth of two hundred years, created a far flung empire we cannot afford to garrison, and turned a noble experiment in human freedom from a city on a hill into dysfunctional republic functioning as an entrenched oligarchy masquerading as a democracy.

If we had only learned from the mistakes of others, if we had only seen in the sudden collapse of the USSR that we too could follow hubris and collectivism from victory to defeat.  Unfortunately it appears the only lesson we have learned from History is that we don’t learn the lessons of History and this is the Great Disconnect.

Bombshell! Hillary Clinton’s Closest Aide Worked at a Radical Muslim Journal for More than Ten Years!


This should absolutely sink the Hillary Clinton campaign for the White House. On Sunday, the NY Post released a report that uncovered the secret and disturbing employment past of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide and friend, Huma Abedin. Abedin has a history of being linked to Muslim extremists, as well as a history of being defended by politicians on the left and the right. Every time there has been any question of Abedin’s loyalty to our nation, many in Washington, D.C. have stood up to defend and praise her work for our country.

Will these same people rise in her defense now? The NY Post is reporting that Hillary Clinton’s longtime “right-hand man” Huma Abedin spent 12-years working for a radical Muslim journal called “the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.” Among the work that the journal published during her time as editor was this neat, hateful, little story:

Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.

The Post explains why this sudden revelation of Abedin’s previous work history is so shocking. How has Abedin, who has been in the limelight alongside Hillary Clinton for a many years now, been able to hide this part of her history from the media? It probably has something to do with the fact that the media tends to turn a blind eye to any possible problems in the Hillary Clinton universe.

Huma Abedin is Clinton’s longest-serving and, by all accounts, most loyal aide. The devout, Saudi-raised Muslim started working for her in the White House, then followed her to the Senate and later the State Department. She’s now helping run Clinton’s presidential campaign as vice chair and may end up back in the White House.

The contradictions are hard to reconcile. The campaign is not talking, despite repeated requests for interviews.

Until now, these articles which Abedin helped edit and publish have remained under wraps. Perhaps Clinton was unaware she and her mother took such opposing views.

But that’s hard to believe. Her closest adviser served as an editor for that same Saudi propaganda organ for a dozen years. The same one that in 1999 published a book, edited by her mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law, while claiming “man-made laws have in fact enslaved women.”

Interestingly enough, it almost seems as though Hillary Clinton is literally attempting to duplicate Barack Obama’s presidency. Huma Abedin is to Hillary as Valerie Jarrett is to Obama, and the Muslim extremists in the Middle East once again have a direct line into the White House via the American president’s closest confidante.

It’s an eerily similar story and one that spells devastation for America if we allow Hillary Clinton to get her hooked claws into the Oval Office.


The liberal grasp on all forms of media has been exposed once again as Google was caught subverting searches regarding Hillary Clinton’s past transgressions.

Specifically, searches aimed at the true body count behind Hillary Clinton’s rise to political royalty have been censored by the web giant, leading many to believe that Julian Assange’s previous assertions on the subject were completely accurate.

“Google has altered its search algorithm to prevent searches for ‘Clinton body count’ from auto-completing, despite the term auto-completing when typed in on virtually any other search engine.
“The ‘Clinton body count’ is an infamous list of alleged murders connected to the Clintons.
“When a web user searches for ‘clinton body’ on Bing or Yahoo Search, the suggested results all relate to the Clinton body count controversy.
“However, search for the same term on Google and ‘clinton body’ only returns suggestions related to auto-repair shops, and nothing to do with the Clinton body count.”
Google’s blatant rigging for Hillary Clinton and other liberals has been well documented in the past, and has led to other major internet sites to employ similar anti-conservative tactics in an effort to influence American politics.

Leaked Memos Show George Soros Responsible For Social Media Censorship


In the following video, you’ll learn that George Soros has started another far-left political organization named Demos, and Demos is intended to work in coordination with other Soros far-left groups like, Democracy Spring, and Black Lives Matter. The difference between Demos and the other groups, according to the article below from Breitbart, is that Demos is intended to operate in a much more “stealthy & politically correct mode” than its Soros counterparts.

Make no mistake however, as a Soros backed operation, Demos will be the beneficiary of all the typical overindulgence normally afforded to Soros run organizations, and the group is expected to closely follow Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” as you’ll find out below. In the video below, I break down how recent developments by Soros and Co., could spell the end of national sovereignty for the United States. The information that follows is devastating.

The left-wing think tank that released a controversial report about Islamophobia on Twitter was directly funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

Left-wing think tank Demos released a new report that conflates Islamophobia with any criticism of Islam Friday claiming that Islamophobic tweets had become so frequent that Twitter should actively engage in censorship to stop the comments. Leaked documents from the Open Society Foundation (OSF) show that George Soros’ organization funded Demos to be able to conduct research over social media platforms like Twitter.

According to the document, “List of European Elections 2014 Projects,” Demos received 129,484 dollars from Open Society Initiative for Europe (OSIFE), the European arm of the international foundation. The description of the money claims the funds are to be used to create software to scour data on Twitter. It reads:

“Demos will produce tools and techniques, like open source software, that could be used to analyze real time Twitter data, in order to allow campaigners to increase turnout of target groups. These tools will be made available online free of charge.”
Chief Executive Claudia Wood claims that the method developed by Demos could identify “hateful, derogatory, and anti-Islamic” tweets in real time, exactly the features described by the leaked Soros document. The leak also specifies that Demos received the grant from OSIFE in order that they share the software with other groups across Europe. “Demos will also train advocates and civil society groups interested in civic and political participation through a series of two-day face-to-face workshops in France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and the UK,”the document reads.

The Demos study was criticized by National Secular Society communications officer Benjamin Jones who remarked that the methodology of the study was unsound and claiming a link between violent passages in the Koran and racism,”creates a false moral equivalence between racism and criticizing a set of ideas.”

While there is no mention of Islamophobia in the Demos grant, there are several other grants listed that specifically tackle criticism of Islam. In the Netherlands OSIFE directly funded groups that claimed to be tackling Islamophobia including Spior and umbrella organization for Islamic groups in Rotterdam.

OSIFE gave the group 24,970 dollars over a period of five months in 2012 to “realize a preliminary research into the nature and principal features of islamophobia in the Netherlands, preceding the development and executing of a (periodical) monitor on islamophobia,” showing that the foundation was, at the time, keen on developing a means to monitor Islam-critical speech online. Spior received a further 100,000 dollars in 2013 to, “promote participation in the political process amongst underrepresented groups, particularly migrants, women and Muslims.”

Censorship of Muslim and migrant critical speech online has become a major issue in European countries like Germany and the UK. In Germany dozens of people have had their homes raided by police for anti-migrant comments and in the UK Muslim critical comments have led to arrests and fines. London’s first Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan has also vowed to create an “Online Hate Crime Hub” to monitor so-called hate crimes.

From Conservative Refocus

In essence, “Demos,” as with most beneficiaries of Soros’ largesses, operates underSaul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” except in a more stealthy & politically correct mode.

At a minimum, Demos, at the direction of Soros, appears to be utilizing Alinksy’s*RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive” which points to Demos’ efforts at trying to camouflage the brutality of most Islamic-oriented cultures, by characterizing Muslims as cultural victims rather than cultural invaders seeking conquest & territory.

However, with the emergence of the Soros leaked emails & his funding intended to bankroll software designed to target both free speech, and those with opposing viewpoints, we can now observe that Demos, at the behest of Soros and his Open Society Foundation, is growing decidedly more aggressive by the day.

NASA Shock Study: Antarctica Is Growing Not Shrinking


Antarctica is growing not shrinking, according to the latest study from NASA. Furthermore, instead of contributing to rising sea levels, the still-very-much-frozen southern continent is actually reducing them by 0.23 mm per year.

The study – by an organization not hitherto noted for playing down environmental scares – will come as a major blow climate alarmists. For decades, they have cited Antarctica as one of the bellwethers of global warming catastrophe and have claimed – as the IPCC’s most recent Assessment Report did – that its land ice mass was slowly melting into the sea.

But the satellite measurements used in the latest NASA report tell a different story. Unlike previous studies – many largely based on guesswork because the continent is so vast and inhospitable, meaning that data is extremely limited – they use satellite altimeters to calculate changes in the surface height of the ice. What they show is that the amount of ice lost by glaciers collapsing into the sea has been exceeded by the gain in ice mass from accumulated snow.



Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe’s borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.

“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” Mr Orban said.

“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.”

Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business, claiming his foundations help “uphold European values”, while Mr Oban’s actions in strengthening the Hungarian border and stopping a huge migrant influx “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

Last month, Mr Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis,” singling out those funded by Mr Soros.

George Soros is a firm backer of transnational bodies such as the European Union, and his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-migration activists. He is well-known for his support for “progressive” causes such as the Centre for American Progress, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The OSF website explains: “We believe that migration and asylum policy should be grounded in economic and demographic realities, not driven by temporary political considerations or popular misconceptions. In Europe, many of our civil society partners are raising their voices demanding a common European approach in line with international human rights commitments.”

Mr Orban said in an interview last month that immigration and multiculturalism are endangering Europe’s “Christian roots” and creating “parallel societies”.

Europeans, he said, should “stick to our Christian values” and “Europe can be saved,” but only if they “take seriously the traditions, the Christian roots and all the values that are the basis of the civilisation of Europe.”

Hillary Clinton’s 15,000 New Emails to Get Timetable for Release

WASHINGTON — The dispute over Hillary Clinton’s email practices now threatens to shadow her for the rest of the presidential campaign after the disclosure on Monday that the F.B.I. collected nearly 15,000 new emails in its investigation of her and a federal judge’s order that the State Department accelerate the documents’ release.

As a result, thousands of emails that Mrs. Clinton did not voluntarily turn over to the State Department last year could be released just weeks before the election in November. The order, by Judge James E. Boasberg of Federal District Court, came the same day a conservative watchdog group separately released hundreds of emails from one of Mrs. Clinton’s closest aides, Huma Abedin, which put a new focus on the sometimes awkward ties between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department.

The F.B.I. discovered the roughly 14,900 emails by scouring Mrs. Clinton’s server and the computer archives of government officials with whom she corresponded. In late July, it turned them over to the State Department, which now must set a timetable for their release, according to Judge Boasberg’s order.

While the emails were not in the original trove of 55,000 pages that Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers handed to the State Department last year, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said in July that he did not believe they had been “intentionally deleted.” Still, he characterized Mrs. Clinton’s handling of classified information during her years at the State Department as “extremely careless.”

Under the likely timetable, the soonest the new emails would be released is October. The State Department released the original emails in monthly installments over nearly a year, through February, though it missed several court-ordered deadlines as its staff and other agencies scrutinized the documents for classified information.

Despite Mr. Comey’s conclusion that Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information, he said last month that the F.B.I. would not recommend criminal charges against her, which finally seemed to ease the threat that her handling of emails has posed to her presidential campaign. But the prospect of further disclosures from Mrs. Clinton’s emails suggests that the issue will not be put to rest so easily.

“Hillary Clinton seems incapable of telling the truth,” the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, said in a statement. “The process for reviewing these emails needs to be expedited, public disclosure should begin before early voting starts, and the emails in question should be released in full before Election Day.”

The Clinton campaign said Mrs. Clinton had turned over all the work-related emails she had in her possession in 2014 to the State Department. “We are not sure what additional materials the Justice Department may have located,” said the campaign’s spokesman, Brian Fallon. “But if the State Department determines any of them to be work-related, then obviously we support those documents being released publicly as well.”

A State Department spokesman, Mark C. Toner, said it would have to review the documents to determine which were personal or work-related, and whether any duplicated emails that had already been released in response to lawsuits brought by the conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, under the Freedom of Information Act.

Of all the people that SHOULD show up in Louisiana to offer aid, donate supplies, and provide moral support for the victims of the recent floods it would be the PRESIDENT! Right?
Instead, it was Donald Trump that lent a willing and able hand today. Gov. John Bel Edwards was forced to eat his own words when Trump showed up in Baton Rouge today.

One would also think that given it is an election year and Hillary Clinton is the Democratic Presidential Nominee that perhaps it would behoove her to make an appearance as well.

Yet apparently, Hillary is too busy “resting” to worry about those that literally have NOWHERE to rest currently. Enter Donald Trump – Republican Presidential Nominee and despised by all of Washington.

Gov. Edwards has been silent on Obama and Hillary choosing to IGNORE Louisiana in her time of crisis but via a spokesperson the Governor stated this about Trump – “Donald Trump hasn’t called the governor to inform him of his visit.

We welcome him to LA but not for a photo-op. Instead, we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.”

Trump AND his vice-presidential nominee, Mike Pence came.

They didn’t come with any media, no photo-ops, just a truck filled to the brim with supplies for people that desperately need assistance. Now THAT is leadership and what is SORELY lacking in Washington right now.

FBI uncovers 14,900 more documents in Clinton email probe

The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server uncovered 14,900 emails and documents from her time as secretary of state that had not been disclosed by her attorneys, and a federal judge on Monday pressed the State Department to begin releasing emails sooner than mid-October as it planned.

Justice Department lawyers said last week that the State Department would review and turn over Clinton’s work-related emails to a conservative legal group. The records are among “tens of thousands” of documents found by the FBI in its probe and turned over to the State Department, Justice Department attorney Lisa Ann Olson said Monday in court.

The 14,900 Clinton documents are nearly 50 percent more than the roughly 30,000 emails that Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and returned to the department in December 2014.

Billionaire Donor George Soros Hacked, Hundreds Of Documents Leaked

George Soros, the man who has donated Millions to Clinton
Hundreds of documents from internal offices were leaked on Saturday. The documents belong to groups that are affiliated and run by the billionaire George Soros.

Mr. Soros is famous for his donations of billions to the Clinton family.

Well, it looks like he was just infiltrated by a group of highly-skilled computer hackers. The lost documents include 2,576 files.

The hackers who did this belong to the now legendary Wiki Leaks website. They are an American “Hacktivist” Organization “who respects and appreciates the freedom of speech, human rights and government of the people.”

Wiki Leaks Hackers Are Modern Day Patriots
The documents that were leaked are from countless of Soros’ internal departments. However, his Open Society Foundation was the main target. Some of the documents have now been verified to have come from “the President’s Office” as well as “SOUK.”

The documents date all the way back to 2008 until now. In June of this year, the Open Society Foundation was also the target of a previous Wiki Leaks attack. It is clear that Wiki Leaks and its figure head Julian Assange do not like what they are hiding. At the time of the leak, George Soros reported the cyber attack to the FBI.

Emails With Words Including “the President’s Office” Make You Wonder Who’s Working With Who
Documents that were leaked include papers such as “Somalis in European Cities Portfolio Review” as well as countless financial grants initiated by the Federal Government.

This source of the DCLeaks in the past was responsible for the documents leaked that showed the NATO Commander’s discontent with Obama’s reluctance to handle foreign military affairs.

It’s clear that Obama, Hillary, the current Federal Administration, and large donors such as George Soros are all directed towards the same goals.

So far, the Wiki Leaks have gotten worse and worse. As election day draws near there is sure to be increasingly “devastating” knowledge released. It will most likely show the current corruption of the establishment to be at an incredible level.

NATO Commander GEN Philips Has Urged Obama Countless Times To Adjust His Military Policies
It looks bad right now, but we are most likely going to see much more revealed by the time Obama leaves office.

The internet is helping to show the corruption of the government to a shocking degree. It is much harder to suppress the sharing of information online, than in large news outlets such as CNN and MSNBC. It’s the main reason the Wiki Leaks have literally altered the political climate of America in just months.

Consider sharing this article to help spread the flow of information. Simply consider that Trump has more Facebook Likes, more YouTube viewers, more Instagram followers, and more Twitter followers than Hillary by miles. He is able to spread his message more by PEOPLE LIKE YOU.
