Voters Aren’t Choosing Dems, Dems Are Choosing Voters The new system of elections has taken away the power of the people. November 17, 2022 by Daniel Greenfield “The people had squandered the confidence of the government and could only win it back by redoubled work. Would it not in that case be simpler for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?” —The Solution, 1953 To understand how we got here, we need to begin with the founding premise of America, the one that motivated former British subjects to take up arms against a king, that the people had the right to choose their governments. Now the divine right of kings has given way to the radical right of leftists to take power from the people in the name of the people. Unable to directly coerce voters, they instead exploited loopholes and weaknesses in the system to reinvent who the people were.

The Great Reset: A Perfect Storm | ZeroHedge Such a storm is now upon us. All its elements clearly point to an orchestrated intention; in other words, it cannot be an accident. And the intention we discern in the current historical moment, the underlying plan, would appear to lay the ground for what has been called a “techno-totalitarian digital dark age,” associated with the Club of Rome, the United Nations, and the World

Canadian Iicensing requirement for internet users enacted by Canadian Senate, last night. Any Canadian citizen with an internet connection is now a "broadcaster" and, as such, may not "send" anything, that is not approved. The meat: Clause 2 specifies that users of social media services who upload programs for sharing with other users, and who are not affiliated with the service provider (“unaffiliated users”), would not be subject to broadcasting regulation in that respect. Clause 4 stipulates that the Act would not apply in respect of programs uploaded to an online undertaking that provides a social media service by an unaffiliated user of the service, unless the programs are prescribed by regulation. In deciding to prescribe such programs, the Commission would be required to consider: a) the extent to which the program uploaded to social media generates revenue; b) whether the program has been broadcast by a licensed or registered broadcasting undertaking that is not a social media service; and c) whether the program has been assigned a unique identifier under an international standards system. Programs that consist only of visual images, and programs where neither the person who posts the program nor the owner or licensee of copyright in the program receives revenues, would not be subject to the Act. The Bill would provide the Commission with new powers to regulate online services, and update the Commission’s regulatory powers as they relate to traditional broadcasters. Clause 9 would amend the Commission’s licencing powers and would exclude online undertakings from licencing. Clause 25 would specify that a person shall not carry on a broadcasting undertaking, other than an online undertaking, unless they do so in accordance with a licence or they are exempt from the requirement to hold a licence. Clause 10 would replace the Commission’s power to impose conditions on a licence with a power to make orders imposing conditions on the carrying on of broadcasting undertakings. This power would include conditions about the proportion of programs that must be Canadian.

Understanding The Great Game in Ukraine Synopsis Nothing is what it seems in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict that has roiled the world in the last month. On the surface of it, this appears to be, especially as portrayed in Western media, a land grab by an authoritarian megalomaniac Russian dictator who is intent on recreating a Russian empire of times past. But the truth is far more complex than this simplistic picture that has been presented for popular consumption in Western media. Detailed analysis of the various factors involved in the build-up to this war, presented here, reveal that everything that has happened in this affair, over a period of 14 long years, has been scripted. Both Ukraine and Russia are merely pawns in a giant, 26-year-old geopolitical game played by the US and NATO, with the natural resources of both Ukraine and Russia as its targets. How this game will end will depend on how the other key players in the game: China, India, and the Global South, play their parts. International relations are never about right and wrong. They are about what is possible and what is not, because we live in an anarchic world with no central law enforcer. All countries must therefore be careful and understand the consequences of their actions and, especially, the actions of Great Powers that affect all of us. In this essay, I also explain exactly what those consequences are, and how various countries in the world need to prepare for what is coming in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The FBI’s Million-Dollar Men Three high-profile trials are shining much-needed light on how the bureau uses highly paid informants as political hit men. By Julie Kelly October 17, 2022 Proceedings underway in three U.S. courtrooms are providing a coordinated view into the abuse of the FBI’s confidential human source (CHS) program, a cash-flush operation now primarily used to bolster Democratic Party narratives instead of detecting and preventing crime. As I’ve reported, the FBI spends an average of $42 million per year to pay informants and does so with absolutely no financial or legal accountability. Confidential human sources are paid in cash; they can offer their services for a variety of reasons including financial need or to obtain a change in immigration status. FBI agents are required to keep at least one informant on the books, an FBI whistleblower told me; successfully using a CHS to bust up a crime is one way to get promoted. ... ollar-men/
