Well. after a long 3 months of impeachment hearings, the prediction I made as to how it would end up came true. On the Ground Zero show, Tu Quoque: Explaining the Frame War, I said the following:

“No matter how you feel about impeachment, whether pro-Trump or anti-Trump, there is as coined by Hillary Clinton a vast conspiracy whether it be right or left the issue here is not the impeachment per se but how the narrative is framed. The reason is simple – just like a bad ‘B-movie’ that is projected on the screen; the impeachment proceedings of President Trump will have a predictable ending.

It should come with a spoiler alert – and here it is.

In all likelihood Trump will be impeached by the House of Representatives, but not removed by the Senate.”

Well, today was President Trump’s Day of Reckoning and as predicted, he was acquitted by the Senate.

Republican senators voted largely to acquit Trump, relying on a multitude of rationales for keeping him in office: He’s guilty, but his conduct wasn’t impeachable; his July telephone conversation with Ukraine’s president was a “perfect call”; there’s an election in 10 months and it’s up to voters to determine his fate.

Mitt Romney, on the other hand, gave a guilty vote on the first article of impeachment.

National politics are now a bad reality show and we have a reality show star as President which puts us already into a paranormal plot that seems to have no conclusion and no curtain call.

We can only conclude that even though this reality show’ star, President Trump is telling us the best is yet to come, he is being idealistic because the worst is probably yet to come as this is not over—not by a long shot.

Republicans shouldn’t even think about gloating right now – they should be thinking about being prepared for the next round. The President is like Godzilla when he is hit by lightning and while the Democrats are defeated they will return and in greater numbers.

The popularity of political positions cannot shield a society from the consequences of their actions.

We have been seeing a constant push from one side – pushback will be interesting to see transpire.

Despite things looking favorably, Trump is not out of the woods just yet. The reason is that the Democrats, due to their chummy relationship with the media, are still able to control the narrative.

There is a real civil war taking place behind the scenes in Washington, and Trump’s impeachment is just one small part of the action. His victory has emboldened his base and will indeed anger those that oppose him.

What is happening now in Washington DC between the Republicans and Democrats is just mere dress rehearsal for far more disasters down the road.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but cause and effect have to be watched at this time in history.

Now the establishment is not afraid of what President Trump will do or what Bernie Sanders will do—they are now afraid of what their supporters might do and we all know how the story goes when governments fear their people.

During the George W Bush administration, it was popular in conspiracy circles to speculate that events might be orchestrated which would allow the Bush family to complete a coup against the US Constitution and hold on to power indefinitely.

The same was said for Barack Obama.

Now we are facing the same conspiracy theory; either we keep Emperor Trump or we throw away everything to emergency socialism.

Not really a choice but it has to be considered.

As I said the other day, paranoia is the new state religion and back then, with all of the fear that we were getting over from the 9/11 attacks and in the wake of the advancements in Orwellian surveillance programs and unprecedented military expansionism you can see why this type of paranoia exists in this country.

In essence, there really was a coup as the Bush doctrines of control were embraced by the Obama administration – opening up the dialogue for socialist reforms.

You see there is a mechanism that ensures the perpetuation of the same policies from administration to administration.  It is called the Shadow government or the deep state.  Yes, it existed long before the left said that Trump made it up.

Originally the term Deep State was not just a throw-away term by a political party. It wasn’t the Illuminati although many conspiracy theorists don’t know the difference.

It wasn’t a product of the Jewish bankers, Satanists or Reptilians.

It was the simple and undeniable fact that unelected power structures exist and tend to influence America’s official elected government.

Many members of the Deep State may be Illuminists, Satanists or even Reptilians but that is a topic for another show and well, this is where we put our stakes down for some down and dirty parapolitical exposure.

The Deep State is not some conspiracy theory – it is in part a name given to a concept uses in political analysis to describe how US government agencies and plutocrats form loose alliances with each other and with official Washington politicians to influence government policy and behavior.

I admitted back in November as I do now that the prediction did not take a stroke of genius or even an amount of ESP to know the outcome – It was simply a warning about how fruitless, expensive and terribly exhausting it was going to be to disregard the vote with impeachment proceedings that again I predicted in September of 2019 would happen.

This was when I introduced all of you to what I call the Frame War.  The Frame War within the media and social media is meddling in the election process. It is also meddling and manipulating the public’s right to know and subjectively using commentary to sway public opinion and divide the substance of rational and productive discourse.

This should be called out as criminal.  However, there is no longer a fairness doctrine or checks and balances.

The media are essential to a democracy, they are essential to a well-informed republic and a democratic election is impossible without media. A free and fair election is not only about the freedom to vote and the knowledge of how to cast a vote, but also about a participatory process where voters engage in public debate and have adequate information about parties, policies, candidates and the election process itself in order to make informed choices. Furthermore, the media is supposed to act as a crucial watchdog to democratic elections, safeguarding the transparency of the process. Indeed, a democratic election with no media freedom, or stifled media freedom, would be a contradiction.

In order to fulfill their roles, the media needs to maintain a high level of professionalism, accuracy, and impartiality in their coverage. The impeachment proceedings have shown us that for 3 straight months the press can ignore other important news stories to push an agenda.

This should be labeled unusual – a paranormality in a Constitutional Republic but it seems to thrive in a psychotic predator state.

Saying we have Freedom of the Press a comfortable lie we tell ourselves because we still haven’t had the right taken from us to do so.

Of course, that can change and every day that there is information blocked from the internet, ignored by the mainstream press, and when reporters are found suicided – freedom of the press becomes a hollow talking point.

While the media has championed the Russian conspiracy and has pushed censorship on anyone who chooses to dispute it – keep in mind that one of the first targets of Russian President Putin was the independent media. Today, in Russia all major television and radio stations and most major newspapers in Russia are in the hands of Kremlin loyalists. This controlled media landscape was one of Putin’s most 12 important tools for ensuring that the opposition had no chance to threaten his political dominance.

Some will say that Trump is doing the same – but tweeting snarky and downright horrible things on the internet pales in comparison to corporate media’s agendas that favor both left and right-wing radicalism. It pales in comparison to Google burying conservative views and Facebook silencing what they call conspiracy theory.

Trump is now using Twitter to declare is invincibility and trolling the internet with jabs and stroking his ego thinking that he is the forever President – it is as if he is now the Emperor.

The media will certainly act as if they had no hand in encouraging this divisive behavior because we now know that lack of transparency is the best they can muster for mystery which is exactly what most amateur conspiracy theorists do for clickbait.

The great antagonist feeds the monster –and the others become monsters in the process.

Transparency, as required for access to information, means that an electorate is provided necessary and comprehensive information so as to make informed choices as well as be able to hold officials and institutions accountable. 

If there are many wondering why the acquittal happened even though you were cocksure of the evidence, you can blame the media and the internet for allowing what was desired by them and their hidden agendas to get in the way of reality and history.

A well-informed media would have looked back at other attempts of impeachment throughout history and with that information, we could have avoided spending $3.06 million dollars of taxpayer money on a show where most people already knew the outcome.

However, that would have been a determent to their advertising incomes and to the many politicians who starved for the limelight in order to build a portfolio for another political position – maybe even President.

That is if there is a position to fill after we have another counterfeit election in November.

The stage has been set – if we are not fighting in the streets by spring we will have soldiers standing at the voting centers by next winter.

The buildup for the police state is growing and the attempts at putting America in the hands of the globalists are all but accomplished now that we have proven that we cannot be governed or even respect the decision of the voters.

The Impeachment proceedings were part of a parapolitical attempt to distract you from crucial information and news that could be useful for the future – there is a vacuum now for real news and information that does not include every tweet and temper tantrum that is been issued by the President or the childish activities of the House Speaker and her henchmen.

This impeachment has qualified as a parapolitical distraction from the fate that awaits us in the next few months here in the United States.

The fix is in and the conspiracy to push the globalist agenda will grow another set of teeth – that will rip an tear into the constitution as the derangement and anger will facilitate the platform where the truth and reality will take a beating.

We again are seeing the beginnings of what can be seen as a civil war.  We are now seeing more instances of lack of due process and leaders attacking others within their own parties calling them traitors or torpedoing the election process in order to create an illusion of victory that is hollow at best.

No attempts at impeachment are going to clean up the mess we are in now and while it is easy to blame one man for our failings, it is a compromise that has died – and public discourse that has been censored.

All of these actions are pushing us closer to a republic that will be enslaved by an ever-encroaching despotism that will be unwittingly enforced b an emboldened police state.

The police state shows no party affiliation especially when the jackboots on the ground are put there by a foreign country or even an adversarial United Nations that when abandoned may decide that it wants to enforce the leveling of the playing field as they have n the past intervened in countries that are unable to have fair elections or even a corrupt and unhinged government.

We have reached that point now and there is no real way of reigning in those that are consumed with hate and vengeance.

The use of the framing war is vital in trivializing democracy.

Abusive governments may want to legitimize themselves on the cheap, but it takes their peers to let them do so. To a significant degree, all corrupt politicians succeed in passing themselves off as the real thing because they are beneficiaries of diminished expectations from the voters –who see chaos in Washington as the normal way of doing business.

I have seen these types of conditions before in South America.  The dirty wars as a result of Operation Cyclone – the brainchild of Henry Kissinger provided enough chaos to bring down the governments of Chile and Argentina.

The actions brought about a mob rule that was answered by a military coup and martial law,

We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long, sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’re certainly on that downward trajectory now, and things are moving fast.

The Republic has fallen and the Deep State is now ready to sign with blood the contract that puts us in the hands of globalist interests and while Trump claims he will fight tooth and nail to stop it – there will be no action if powers outside of his control bind him and keep him from doing his job.

Even now, we are being pushed and prodded towards a civil war, not because the American people are so divided but because that’s how corrupt governments control a populace—they divide them, they make them weak, they disarm them and then they make draconian changes in the playbook.

We are being ruled by an oligarchy disguised as a democracy. I know that people will try and correct me that we are a constitutional republic but if we are then where is the enforcement of the constitution when it is being cherry-picked to give a hall pass to criminality and corporate fascism?

Of course, the young all think that fascism is easily assuaged by thugs in masks that stop traffic and yell fascist epithets to nationalist groups.

But since they have not been taught history or civics they fail to realize that true fascism is a form of government where private corporate interests rule, money calls the shots, and the people are seen as mere subjects to be controlled.

In this type of fascism, the basic forms of government will remain: Fascism will appear to be friendly. The legislators will be in session. There will be elections, and the news media will continue to cover the entertainment and political trivia.

Consent of the governed, however, will no longer apply. Actual control will have finally passed to the oligarchic elite controlling the government behind the scenes. 

Everyone wants to say that we are following the example of Hitler but in our situation now we are certainly behaving as if we are mimicking Mussolini’s Italy.

History may show that from this point forward, we will have left behind any semblance of constitutional government and entered into a totalitarian state where all citizens are suspects and security trumps freedom. 

We are now stuck in a never-ending time loop.

 From Clinton to Bush, then Obama and now Trump we have been forced to re-live the same situations over and over and over again.

We are still seeing the same assaults on our government, our freedoms, our ability to vote, the respect for the vote, the respect for law and it continues as we vote for the lesser of two very real evils.

The unelected power establishment has always been in the background ensuring its dominance amid the repetitious actions of electing corrupt republican and Democrat presidents who are part of America’s official administrative government.

Don’t kid yourself these shadowy puppet masters are perfectly capable of dealing with one man being a less than ideal steward of the empire.

What they absolutely cannot deal with, is the prospect of ordinary people finally rising up and using the power of their numbers to force real change.

That is what they are really fighting against when they try to sabotage populist candidates: not the candidates themselves, but populism itself.

They are counting on your complacency—they are counting in the media to continue their frame war in order to troll us into accepting whatever flag is flown and whatever government is put into place.
