An interesting new development in the civil war going on inside US intelligence agencies: reportforthepresident. A website set up by members of the US intelligence community to communicate with president Trump and the US people. From its mission statement:
Regardless of your politicial party, culture, race, religion or gender, you should be very concerned with the blatant abuses of establishment elites and holdovers from the former Obama Administration who have taken the power from the People.
The main stream media played a big role in restricting your rights through their FAKE NEWS REPORTS, which created the need for the People to go elsewhere for their news but then the media companies began censoring social media and restricting your abilities to communicate so the TRUTH would not get out to the public.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY HAS JOINED TOGETHER TO GATHER EVIDENCE TO PROVIDE PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS IMPORTANT PROOF OF THE INTERFERENCE BY ENEMIES WHO ARE WORKING IN GOVERNMENT AND EVEN THE WHITE HOUSE.
WE ARE ALSO MAKING SOME OF THE INTELLIGENCE AVAILABLE TO YOU THE PEOPLE SO EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE FOR THEMSELVES THE IRREFUTABLE CRIMES ELITISTS WHO HAD CONTINUED TO TRY TO KEEP CONTROL OF OUR U.S. GOVERNMENT FOR THEIR OWN ENRICHMENT WITHOUT REGARD FOR ANY OF THE PEOPLE WHETHER DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENT.
Pity they didn’t run it through a spellchecker.
This morning’s thought: people are getting angry. Britain has been a pretty placid country for pretty much my entire life. In fact Europe has been a pretty placid place for my entire life. But that’s changing now.
When people get angry, they find new “populist” politicians to speak for them. Donald Trump is one of these. He’s really only telling the US people what they already think anyway. And the same goes with the populist politicians in Europe – Nigel Farage, Marine Le Pen, Beppe Grillo -. The political establishment of the past 60 years no longer speaks for the people. It has its own “progressive” agenda which it developed back in more placid times, when the people were asleep. Its politicians regard themselves as an aristocracy who are entitled to rule over the people. And they are now about to be swept away, because they have forgotten who they were supposed to be representing.
We tend to think that the politicians are important, that they’re the only people who really matter. But all the politicians are floating on a sea of people. While the sea is tranquil, the politicians are the most visible. But when storms come and waves mount on the sea, the politicians start being tossed around, with some being raised to prominence, and others upturned and sunk. The political establishment has reason to be alarmed:
The French establishment fear “Europe could die” following the EU Parliament elections next year, with President Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche! polling poorly and conservative-leaning populists looking set to make huge gains.
According to an Ifop-Fiducial survey for Paris Match, Sud Radio, and CNews, the French leader’s party is polling at 20 percent, down three percent compared to June 2017.
Meanwhile, Marine Le Pen’s National Rally is nipping at his heels on 17 percent — although its polling numbers are somewhat down since the last round of EU Parliament elections in 2014, where her party — then the Front National — came in first place.
The old political order was one that had grown up on a tranquil sea, on which the politicians could sail around and do more or less whatever they liked. They took for granted the tranquil sea of people on which they floated. They got arrogant. They built empires upon it. They even set out to constrain the sea within regulatory banks and dykes, channeling it with ever more restrictive laws.
This old order is about to be swept away by a newly angry sea.
