Top Texas attorney says the Mueller probe shows there was “no sound basis” for creating it, especially now that it has demonstrated “irresponsibility,” unbelievable level of partisanship, innuendo, leaks through anonymous sources, and complete lack of integrity

A top lawyer in Texas says the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be nothing more than an effort to charge people with crimes unrelated to Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign. He also said recent revelations of rampant partisanship on the part of prosecutors on Mueller’s team ought to be the death blow to the probe.

Robert Henneke served an assistant attorney general and a top litigator for former Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. He is now general counsel and president of the Center for the American Future at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Within recent weeks, Mueller fired Peter Strzok for highly partisan texts to his mistress. However, three other figures are also under scrutiny.

Top Mueller deputy Andrew Weissman attended Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election night party and later lavished praise on Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enforce President Trump’s first travel ban.

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr was severely demoted for improper contact with officials at Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to dig up opposition research on Donald Trump. This week, Fox News confirmed Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS during the campaign.

Another Mueller prosecutor, Jeannie Rhee, represented former Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.

On Tuesday, thousands of text messages between Strzok and his paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, revealed a lot of ugly but not illegal Trump bashing. However, one other text is getting scrutiny as possible intent to use the FBI as a weapon in case Trump won the election.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” texted Strzok. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” he added in a text dated Aug. 15, 2016.

Henneke is stunned.

“This is a monster red flag,” he told WND and Radio America. “The role of the prosecutor, the role that I had when I served as a prosecutor, really gives you so much power in making choices that can put people in prison or ruin careers. It can result in serious consequences.

“It is so critical in that role that you and everyone you associate with hold themselves out as being the utmost objective, impartial and strong champions of the law and of justice,” Henneke said.

“Of course people have opinions. But it’s not when people have opinions. It’s when those people are so partisan or when those opinions seem to be driving the outcomes rather than the duty to the oath that you swore in upholding the Constitution and executing the duties of your office.”

In the American system, he said, the people grant the government certain powers. But when politics come before the law, all Americans suffer.  “It’s a grant, not an entitlement. All of that is under the premise that the government is going to discharge its duties safely,” Henneke explained. “Otherwise, if you conceded that power to parties who are going to further their own interests and their own partisan objectives, that’s when you get into tyranny.

“If you can vest this much power in a special prosecutor – who is going to use agents who have more allegiance to Hillary Clinton than they do to justice and the Constitution in going about this situation – then how can we trust that government in looking at other types of citizens, maybe with less political power?”

It’s not just the Mueller personnel that bothers Henneke. He said the process Mueller is pursuing also strikes him as odd.

“The overall approach is very concerning and puzzling,” he said. “Unpacking the layers of this, there doesn’t seem to be anything at the core.”

Henneke believes the whole probe is based on a flimsy premise offered up by Obama holdovers in the intelligence community. He also blasts the Mueller team for their irresponsibility with the information they may be gathering.

“It seems that this has just been packed by innuendo, speculation and leaks and accusations that have led into a reactionary launching of this investigation when really the parameters, and the need for it, I don’t think were defined from the get-go,” Henneke said.

Leaks are commonplace in the Mueller investigation, and Henneke said that’s another clear sign that the prosecutors are not even-handed.

“If there is a significant issue that would require this type of special counsel outside investigation, there’s no reason that all of this should be happening in the public arena through leaks, through anonymous sources, through innuendo and so forth,” Henneke said.

“Furthermore, it just underlines what I see as a lack of integrity in this. This is all some sort of capital intrigue-type drama and not what it is supposed to be, which is a criminal investigation of supposedly serious allegations.”

Based on suspect prosecutors and a shaky premise, Henneke said the sooner the Mueller probe shuts down, the better.

“I think this special counsel prosecution should be shut down,” he said. “I don’t think there was a sound basis for creating it. I think the reason it continues to churn is not because of having uncovered any real substance, but because of the partisanship and media perception stepping in.”

He also thinks the special counsel should be used much more sparingly.  “We need to be putting people in positions of government that we can trust to have the integrity to not need to create special counsels to do the job these positions should stand for in the first place,” Henneke said.

While he believes the probe should be shelved, Henneke thinks the actual results will be far more damaging, both to individuals and the nation.  “I think people’s lives and careers are going to be ruined, not because of uncovering the original basis for the investigation. I think that’s already happening with some of the results,” said Henneke, who believes the damage to the U.S. will be far worse.

“The end result will be some bitterly fought partisan outcome that most of the American people will look at and see from either side of the political spectrum as untrustworthy, corrupt and providing further evidence that the problem in our country really is in Washington, D.C.,” Henneke said.

Here’s proof that common sense is not extinct yet!

Good grief, Charlie Brown. What a bunch of blockheads.

A school principal in Killeen, Texas, got her bells jingled after ordering a staffer on Wednesday to remove a Charlie Brown Christmas poster quoting the famous Bible passage in the book of Luke which says “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord.” The poster also then shows Linus saying “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”

Well, ma’am, this is Texas. As in “don’t mess with.” And one of the things they don’t mess with is Christmas. So when the state attorney general called, the school principal probably knew to expect a lump of coal in her stocking.

“This is an attack on religious liberty and a violation of the First Amendment and state law,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “I am calling on the school board of the Killeen Independent School District to immediately reverse their unlawful decision.”

The school board has a long history of standing up for religious liberty. The Board of Trustees voted to change the name of “Winter Break” to “Christmas Break,” refused to cease praying before meetings, and ignored the federal Department of Education’s demand for transgender bathrooms.

In 2013, then-Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, signed the “Merry Christmas” bill into law. TheBlaze reported that this legislation protected public school officials’ right to make biblical references to Christmas. The principal might have inadvertently broken this law.

This isn’t Linus’ first foray into the storm of political correctness. Fox News reported that last year a Kentucky school cancelled a Charlie Brown Christmas play due to the inclusion of Bible verses.

In another school, one horrified grandmother told WND that “Silent Night” had been replaced by the “Whip Nae Nae” song. Seriously.

The hypocrisy of school officials who preach diversity but miss no opportunity to exclude all things Christian is glaringly nonsensical.  December 25th  is called Christmas. Not Wintermas, not Breakmas, not Giftmas.  At the center of the holiday is Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God. He was a flesh-and-blood, real, historical person, the evidence for which is overwhelming, both in the Bible and in secular writings.  Our schools might as well start teaching that George Washington never existed as to try to ignore Jesus the Messiah.

Thank you, Linus.

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown.

Texas, we’re depending on you.

 

 Hillary’s doomed recount effort still doomed: “Borders On The Irrational,” says judge

Four days after Green Party candidate and Hillary Clinton point woman Jill Stein was informed by a federal district court judge that she had no standing to call for a vote recount in Michigan, she received the same “Dear Jill” letter this morning from a judge in Pennsylvania. From the Associated Press:

A federal judge on Monday issued a stinging rejection of a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania’s presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, and scan some counties’ election systems for signs of hacking.

In his 31-page decision, U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond said there were at least six grounds that required him to reject the Green Party’s lawsuit, which had been opposed by Trump, the Pennsylvania Republican Party and the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office.

Suspicion of a hacked Pennsylvania election “borders on the irrational” while granting the Green Party’s recount bid could “ensure that that no Pennsylvania vote counts” given Tuesday’s federal deadline to certify the vote for the Electoral College, Diamond wrote.

America’s Sore Loser Party (aka the Democrats) may just tell its members to hold their breath and pout till their faces turn a much deeper shade of blue.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Call us crazy, but we think the whole “Hillary for President” thing bordered on the irrational.

“A prosecution, not a presidency”…

“The Clinton Family Foundation is effectively a criminal, money-laundering operation principally established to enrich the founders with political payoff money, including millions from foreign donors”

The Hillary Clinton Investigative Justice Project has reached its first threshold, having raised sufficient funds to continue its investigative series into the presidential candidate for illegal activities and to prepare a series of hard-hitting reports for WND that will lead to criminal charges being filed against her at the state level, if the Justice Department fails to indict her.

The investigative research began with a series of more than 20 articles written by WND senior staff writer Jerome Corsi beginning in April 2015 portraying the Clinton Family Foundation as a vast, criminal enterprise, designed to enrich the Clintons personally as well as their close friends.

“In the coming weeks and months, WND plans to present undeniable and irrefutable evidence of actual crimes, gross Internal Revenue Service violations, as well as national security breaches by Hillary Clinton currently under investigation by the FBI,” said Joseph Farah, editor of WND. “Though Barack Obama’s U.S. Justice Department appears unwilling to indict her for these crimes, we believe there is a strong likelihood that one or more state attorney generals will do so if provided with the evidence. That’s what the Hillary Project is all about.”

The goal, he says, is “prosecution, not the presidency.”

The independent project is completely supported by contributions from the public.

Future reports will expose:

  • Major discrepancies in how the Clintons report about their money – how they got the money, how much they have, and what happened to the amount they admit accumulating.
  • Over $1 billion raised by the Clinton Foundation and by the America India Foundation, of which Bill Clinton is the honorary chairman for the victims of the earthquake that hit Gujarat, India, with no clear accounting of how the money raised for this “charitable purpose” was spent.
  • The Clintons’ free use of private jets and the issuance to Bill Clinton of 100,000 shares of corporate stock under the table in a swindle involving an entrepreneur from India, ultimately fined millions of dollars in a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation.
  • A scheme in which the Clintons made millions creating the Clinton Global Initiative as a get-rich public relations event designed to imitate the lavish World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland – in a scheme devised by former Clinton “body man” at the White House, Doug Band, that funneled donors to the Clinton Foundation to Teneo, a private consulting firm created by Band, where the donors were charged millions of dollars in consulting fees and Bill Clinton was paid as an advisor.
  • A massive fraud in which the Clintons have diverted from the Clinton Foundation tens of millions of dollars contributed by UNITAID through the United Nations World Health Organization away from the original purpose of buying HIV/AIDS generic medications for Third World indigent patients.
  • Accounting frauds that permitted the Clinton Foundation to hide from public scrutiny millions of dollars that Canadian mining executive Frank Giustra funneled through a “pass through” entity identified as the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative that was never separately incorporated or properly audited, in blatant defiance of state and federal laws of charitable giving.
  • Evidence that Hillary Clinton, while at the State Department, openly transacted Clinton Foundation business, in open violation of a Memorandum of Understanding the Clinton team negotiated with the Obama transition team as a precondition of Hillary Clinton being nominated secretary of state.
  • Bill and Hillary Clinton diverted millions of dollars from State Department aid to the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, to invest in a luxury Marriott hotel that benefited private investors, including Clinton Foundation donors while the Haitian earthquake victims were forced to live in shanty-towns without adequate water or sanitation facilities.

The campaign was conceived by Farah and Corsi, two veteran investigative journalists, who plan to take their findings to state attorneys general in jurisdictions in which the nonprofit, tax-exempt Clinton Family Foundation does business.

“The Clinton Family Foundation is effectively a criminal, money-laundering operation principally established to enrich the founders with political payoff money, including millions from foreign donors,” said Farah. “It’s a racketeering enterprise protected by the Democratic Party dons – including the president of the United States and his attorney general. This project is designed to take her out of contention for the presidency before Election Day.”

 

America's First Family of Crime

Farah added: “The campaign is on fire. I haven’t seen such enthusiasm since the campaign to dump John Boehner earlier this year. That campaign proved successful. I think this one will, too.”

Farah and Corsi, a two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author, have teamed up with the express purpose of bringing the Clintons to justice. Farah and Corsi have been investigating and reporting on the Clintons for 23 years.

The project will be funded by contributions from ordinary Americans to accomplish three goals:

  • expand the investigative reporting efforts into Hillary Clinton’s illegal activities;
  • empower prosecutors at the state level to bring charges against her;
  • prevent her from becoming the next president of the United States.

Farah was responsible for uncovering some of the facts that led directly to Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998. For his efforts, his news organization was targeted with politically motivated tax audits by the Internal Revenue Service at the direction of the Clinton White House. One of his Cabinet officers threatened donors to the organization with loss of government contracts if he continued to make contributions to Farah’s news agency. Farah’s offices were broken into. His post office box was burglarized. He was threatened.

“The Clinton machine is still a dirty ops program through and through,” Farah said. “That’s what the American people still don’t completely understand.”

Corsi was credited with a big role in the defeat of John Kerry in his bid for the presidency in 2004. Corsi co-authored “Unfit for Command,” one of his two No. 1 New York Times bestsellers that, with the Swiftboat Campaign, made a difference in a very close race. In 2008, Corsi wrote “The Obama Nation,” the first major effort to expose the Obama agenda now all-too-familiar to the American people. His “Where’s the Birth Certificate?,” a bestseller in its own right, prompted Obama to release his disputed long-form birth certificate after stonewalling for four years.

Corsi and Farah are working closely with other investigative reporters, judicial watchdogs, state officials and attorneys who recognize it’s not enough just to document Clinton crimes, but to prosecute them before Hillary can accept the nomination for the presidency.

The fund is being used to hire legal talent and private investigators and pay expenses for continued investigative reporting efforts.

Farah and Corsi believe this effort may be the only one that can stop Hillary Clinton from winning the presidency next year.

Those who contribute $5 or more to this fund will be provided regular insider updates on the progress of the campaign.

“We need help to hire the private investigators needed to prove that Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with a cadre of close associates, have used the Clinton Foundation to be a personal piggy bank, in complete disregard of state and federal laws that strictly prohibit what is known as ‘inurement,’ the crime of using a tax-exempt foundation to defraud charitable donors so their contributions can be diverted to personal use,” said Corsi.

All it will take to close down the Clinton Foundation is one or more state attorneys general who develop the investigative proof the Clintons have violated with impunity laws regarding the filing of the audited financial statements and regulatory reports needed to prove a charitable foundation is being run honestly, Corsi adds.

A state attorney general, armed with proof and a well-crafted criminal complaint, can get from a state judge a temporary restraining order that would shut down the Clinton Foundation, replacing the board and officers with qualified individuals appointed by the court.

In addition to hiring private investigators, attorneys are needed to draft and file criminal complaints with attorneys general in states throughout the nation.

Through the use of a private email server that hid her personally serving communications from the public, Hillary Clinton along with a network of co-conspirators that included Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, as well as Bill Clinton operatives Doug Band, Ira Magaziner and Sid Blumenthal, have monetized the Department of State’s trust for Clinton profit and gain, says Corsi.

“But the time to turn the tables on the Clintons is coming very soon,” he says. “With adequate funds, we can hire attorneys around the country to bring criminal complaints against the Clinton Foundation in a growing number of states where attorneys general can work together to share information and file what ends up being a multi-state collective action.”

In addition to the Clintons’ crimes, Farah said, the project is also looking at the details of Hillary Clinton’s health records that make clear she is suffering from chronic illnesses that should prevent her from being president.

Much of the work of the Hillary Project will also be released in what promises to be a blockbuster book this summer, during the heat of the election cycle.

Hillary has long history of covering up Bill’s rapes and sex with underage girls

The massive Clinton cover-up...Today’s Q&A is with Roger Stone, a seasoned political operative and pundit. A veteran of eight national presidential campaigns, he served as a senior campaign aide to three Republican presidents before leaving the GOP for the Libertarian Party. He is author of the New York Times bestseller, “The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ,” and has written for Fox Opinion, Breitbart News, the Daily Caller’s StoneZone.com and the op-ed page of the New York Times. A well-known voice in politics for more than 40 years, Roger Stone often gives insights on behind-the-scenes political agendas on Fox News, CNN, CNBC and MSNBC.

WND: Recently in Politico, you described your forthcoming book, “The Clintons’ War on Women,” as “The definitive expose’ on Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Raw, shocking and true.”

Is your description just hype to stimulate pre-sales since the book will not be released until Oct. 13, or are you and your co-author Robert Morrow really breaking new ground that will make headlines and possibly impact the 2016 race?

ROGER STONE: The mainstream media have suppressed the shocking truth about the Clintons and the way they have climbed over the backs of innocent women, men and children in their quest for power and wealth. Most people who read this book will learn shocking facts for the first time. Clinton’s apologists will try to dismiss it as “old news.” News is not “old” to those who never heard it. The book is not about Whitewater or Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton and a cigar. It is the true story of serial rape, intimidation, violence, terror tactics, drugs, lies, greed, cover-up and ambition. It’s blunt, ugly and shocking. It’s the definitive expose on Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Bill and Hillary Clinton are the penicillin-resistant syphilis of our political system.
New book tells all about the sordid lives of the Clintons.

WND: Can you tell readers (or at least hint) at some of the headlines this book is likely to generate?

ROGER STONE: Bill Clinton’s record of serial rape and how Hillary ran the terror campaign to intimidate his victims into silence or sign false denials. How Bill Clinton viciously bit the lower lips of his multiple rape victims as a signature bid to remain silent. Which co-president really gave the “go” order in Waco that killed 76 people, mostly women and 26 children? Bill’s abandoned African-American son and the non-existent DNA test reported by the Washington Post that supposedly exonerated Bill. A close-up look at the Clinton’s relationship with pedophile Jeff Epstein. Is Bill’s right-hand man, the now estranged Doug Band, the man who knows too much? How a recent DNA test shows Bill isn’t Chelsea’s biological father and who is. The identity of Bill Clinton’s real father (not the one listed in his Wiki profile).

WND: When describing your forthcoming book on Politico, you are also quoted as saying, “It’s Ed Klein and ‘Clinton Cash’ on steroids.”

As you know, Ed Klein’s 2014 book, “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” was widely criticized for using anonymous sources. Does your book have real quotes from real people who go “on record” in what Amazon describes as a “tell-all, exposing the appalling, unvarnished and ugly truth about the Clintons”?

ROGER STONE: We rest on the shoulders of many brave journalists who have documented and written the stunning facts about the Clintons. Sean Hannity, Peter Schweitzer, Daniel Halper, Michael Goodwin, Christopher Hitchens, David Sirota, Paul Sperry, Ed Klein, Brent Scher, Victor Thorn, Marinka Peschmann, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Jerome Corsi, Jim Nelson, Roger Morris, Sally Denton, Chris Ruddy and many more have proved the shocking facts about Bill and Hil. Our book is heavily sourced. We let the women sexually assaulted by Bill and psychologically assaulted by Hillary speak for themselves.

Incidentally, Ed Klein is an honest and meticulous reporter, and many of [his sources] will only speak without attribution.

New book about the Clintons tells all...

WND: It is no secret that an integral part of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 White House battle plan is to reignite the Republican’s “War on Women.” This “faux war” helped Democrats win the 2012 presidential election when Obama won the women’s vote by a margin of 11 percentage points. It is well established that, to win in 2016, Republicans must close this gender gap.

Therefore, is the goal of your book, as witnessed by the title, to turn women against Hillary Clinton? As a longtime Republican political operative, is this your attempt to deflate her “girl power” campaign and derail her from making history as the first female president? Are you ready for all the Clinton backlash?

ROGER STONE: Hillary as advocate for women is a joke. The Clintons’ activities have not only included Bill’s physical rape of women, but also Hillary’s degradation and psychological rape of women whom Bill has assaulted. Hillary, it will be seen, authorized the heavy-handed private detectives who terrorize Bill’s victims into silence. Behind the scenes, she calls them “sluts,” “whores” and “b–ches,” blaming and shaming them for the unwanted physical attentions and violence of Bill. This is the “advo­cate for women and girls”?

Hillary’s history of paying women less than men and her pocketing millions of dollars from Islamic regimes that oppress women, a convicted sex criminal and a foreign leader known as a pedophile with a dozen underage girls in his harem, all prove Hillary is a fraud when it comes to women.

The book isn’t about me or my colorful co-author Robert Morrow. We are hardly saints. But neither of us is running for president. Nor is the book about consensual sex or infidelity. It’s about rape, sexual assault and sex with underage girls. That crosses a line, even for a libertine like me. It’s about would-be President Hillary Clinton’s role in covering it up. The book will rise or fall on its own. The Clinton’s goons will attack us as partisans, misogynists and worse. Let the reader decide.

WND: In early August after you quit as one of Donald Trump’s longtime loyal political advisers, Trump declared that you were fired. Given your headline-making departure, are you involved with his campaign in any capacity? Do you honestly think he can win the GOP nomination?

ROGER STONE: Although my own views on many issues are more libertarian than Trump’s, I think he can be the one man with the financial independence and guts to take down the Clinton-Bush duopoly in which both parties give us the exact same failed policies while they loot a broken political system running on special-interest money while the system is rigged against the average citizen.

My book, “Jeb and the Bush Crime Family, ” will be out in January proving that I carry no brief for today’s Republican Party and its elites and strongly support Trump since he is making the political establishment pee their pants.

WND: Roger, on behalf of WND, thank you for participating in our new “VIP Q&A” series.

Readers are encouraged to learn more about the long and influential career of Roger Stone. You can connect to all things Roger through his StoneZoneand on Twitter @RogerJStoneJr. His numerous best-selling books are available on Amazon along with presales for The Clintons’ War on Women” set for release in October.

Checking in on Obamacare…

We all know at this point that the Affordable Care Act is not affordable and does not provide adequate care to millions of Americans who have been forced to enroll in it. We also know it’s never going to be the great healthcare money-saver that we were told it would be. We know medical personnel hate it for the hours of data entry it requires, and that doctors hate it for the greatly reduced but mandatory payments they are forced to accept.

Our illustrious president...Here are some of the other things we know:

– This legislation is a perfect symbol of the way leftist Americans (“progressives”) use coercion and punishment in implementing programs they claim are humanitarian.

– It is a perfect example of the way Democrats knowingly, willingly lie, over and over again, to sell their ideas and programs to the American people.  (Because as we learned directly from Mr. Gruber, the architect of ACA, if the Democrats told the truth to us “stupid” Americans, we would never go for the programs the Dems are selling.)

– It reveals clearly how Democrats do not understand fundamentals of economics and detest the market-based free enterprise system that the USA was founded upon.

– It shows that Democrats place absolutely no value on personal choice and individual liberty. (“Government always knows best” is the rallying cry of the left-wingers. Remember Hillary’s “It takes a village to raise a child” admonition to all of us “stupid Americans” who were trying to raise kids in a family setting?)

– It illustrates better than almost anything else that “progressives” are anything but; in fact, they are incompetent at governing.

HOWEVER…we are now seeing that Republicans are doing their best to look like Democrats in disguise. We thought that following last November’s midterm elections, Republicans were actually going to lead this country in the direction voters wanted to go.

It’s really very simple: To not defund is to defend.

This needs to be the slogan of grass-roots activism running all the way through the 2016 election.

To not defund is to defend.

Republicans were handed the reins of the House for just such a time as this. They were elected in 2010 because the American voters rejected Obamacare. They lost seats in 2012 because they wavered for two years in what they claimed was an absolute commitment to repeal it. They won more seats in the House and control of the Senate in 2014 because they SAID they would repeal Obamacare.

In short, the Republican House leadership lied. They deceived us. They tried to broker the threat of ACA implementation for the presidency, for control of the Senate, and for more votes in the House that they didn’t even need. They claimed they didn’t have the power to repeal. That may be technically true…but they have the power to defund, have had it since January 2011, and they have failed to use it.

Failing to use that power this year and next could very well lead Republicans to lose control of the most powerful legislative body in the most powerful branch of the federal government. It could also cost them the Senate and any chance to capture the White House.

To not defund is to defend.

Why is failing to defund the ACA tantamount to defending it? Because House Republicans got elected because they opposed Obamacare, but then failed to do anything meaningful with the mandate the voters gave them. This has been an outright betrayal of their campaign promises. It has sent an unmistakeable signal to millions of Americans that Republicans really do not represent a viable alternative to Democratic rule.

Leading up to November’s election, voters were so fired up they took to the streets and traveled to Washington to make their voices heard; the message delivered after the election is that there really is very little citizens can do to  influence elected leaders. Those elected leaders, those Republicans who said they were ready to perform as the voters had demanded, not only betrayed their own constituencies, but thus far they have also betrayed the whole concept of representative government and the rule of law.

Campaign talk is cheap. (Maybe even the cheapest, if Obama is the example.) What our elected officials say to get elected, and do once they assume office, DOES NOT MATTER. What matters is what they actually do once they have the power to do it.

To not defund is to defend.

Thus far the House Republican leadership has failed to stand against the biggest borrowing and spending spree in American history. (The biggest by a huge margin.) They have the power to stop it, but for lots of reasons, most of them politically selfish and shortsighted, they have consciously decided not to oppose it. (Result: this USA that we love, and love living in, is now so deeply in debt that we probably will have no choice in the future but to default on some of that debt, which will then have the effect of decreasing the value of the dollar to worthless junk.)

Republicans have now put themselves in the position of being complicit in the Obamacare scam. There is no other way to view it. This is the way millions of Americans, mostly Republicans, now see it…and will continue to see it until they see something coming from the mandate of last year’s election.

TO NOT DEFUND IS TO DEFEND.

Remember that. And let your elected representatives KNOW you remember it.

The Shemitah: A Biblical pattern indicating a financial collapse may be coming in 2015…

The Shemitah is coming. Financial collapse may be coming with it.Does a mystery that is 3,500 years old hold the key to what is going to happen to global financial markets in 2015?  Could it be possible that the timing of major financial crashes is not just a matter of coincidence?  In previous articles on my website, I have discussed some of the major economic and financial cycle theories and their proponents.  For example, in an article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“, I examined a number of economic cycle theories that seem to indicate that the second half of this decade is going to be a nightmare economically.  But the cycle that I am going to discuss in this article is a lot more controversial than any of those.  In his most recent book, Jonathan Cahn has demonstrated that almost all of the major financial crashes in U.S. history are very closely tied to a seven year pattern that we find in the Bible known as “the Shemitah”.  Since that book was released, I have been asked about this repeatedly during radio appearances.  So in this article I am going to attempt to explain what the Shemitah is, and what this Biblical pattern seems to indicate may happen in 2015.  If you are an atheist, an agnostic, or are generally skeptical by nature, this article might prove quite challenging for you.  I would ask that you withhold judgment until you have examined the evidence.  When I first heard about these things, I had to go verify the facts for myself, because they are truly extraordinary.

So precisely what is “the Shemitah”?

In the Bible, the people of Israel were commanded to let the land lie fallow every seven years.  There would be no sowing and no reaping, and this is something that God took very seriously.  In fact, the failure to observe these Sabbath years was one of the main reasons cited in the Scriptures for why the Jewish people were exiled to Babylon in 586 BC.

But there was more to the Shemitah year than just letting the land lie fallow.

On the last day of the Shemitah year, the people of Israel were instructed to perform a releasing of debts.  We find the following in Deuteronomy chapter 15

At the end of every seven years you shall grant a relinquishing of debtsThis is the manner of the relinquishing: Every creditor that has loaned anything to his neighbor shall relinquish it. He shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother, because it is called the Lord’s relinquishment.

This happened at the end of every seven years on Elul 29 – the day right before Rosh Hashanah on the Biblical calendar.

So what does this have to do with us today?

Well, if you go back to the last day of the Shemitah year in 2001, you will find that there was an absolutely horrifying stock market crash.

On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up to that time.  The Dow fell an astounding 684 points, and it was a record that held for precisely seven years until the end of the next Shemitah year.

At the end of the next Shemitah year in 2008, another horrifying stock market crash took place.  On September 29th, 2008 the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.  It turns out that September 29th, 2008 corresponded with Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar – the precise day when the Bible calls for a releasing of debts.

So on the very last day of the last two Shemitah years, the stock market crashed so badly that it set a brand new all-time record.

And now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began last fall, and it will end next September.

Could it be possible that we will see another historic market crash?

Author Jonathan Cahn has correctly pointed out that we should never put God in a box.  Just because something has happened in the past does not mean that it will happen again.  But we should not rule anything out either.

Perhaps God is using His calendar to make a point.  Cahn believes that if we are going to see something happen, it will probably occur as the Shemitah year comes to an end

Cahn has pointed that, according to his research, the worst of the worst usually happens at the end of the Shemitah year, not at the beginning. In fact, the last day of the year, Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, which will occur on Sept. 13, 2015, is the most dreaded day.

The pattern revealed in “The Mystery of the Shemitah” is that the beginning of the Shemitah’s impact is often subtle, but leads to a dramatic climax.

“The beginning may mark a change in direction, even a foreshadow of what will come to a crescendo at the Shemitah’s end,” he said.

And this time around, far more people are paying attention.  Back in 2001 and 2008, most Americans had absolutely no idea what a “Shemitah year” was.  But now it is being talked about on some of the most prominent alternative news websites on the Internet.  For example, the following is what Joseph Farah of WND has to say about the Shemitah year…

Farah believes the date Sept. 13, 2015 bears close watching – though he is quick to admit he has no idea what, if anything, will happen in America.

“A clear pattern has been established,” he says. “I don’t believe it’s a coincidence what happened in America on Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008. It would be foolish to ignore the possibility that a greater judgment might be in the works – especially if America continues to move away from God and His Word.”

The Shemitah year that we are in now does end on September 13th, 2015 – and that falls on a Sunday so the markets will be closed.

But what it comes to the Shemitah, we aren’t just looking at one particular day.

And it is very interesting to note that there will also be a solar eclipse on September 13th, 2015.  Over the past century, there have only been two other times when a solar eclipse has corresponded with the end of a Shemitah year.  Those two times were in 1931 and 1987, and as Jonathan Cahn has told WND, those solar eclipses foreshadowed major financial disasters…

In 1931, a solar eclipse took place on Sept. 12 – the end of a “Shemitah” year. Eight days later, England abandoned the gold standard, setting off market crashes and bank failures around the world. It also ushered in the greatest monthlong stock market percentage crash in Wall Street history.

In 1987, a solar eclipse took place Sept. 23 – again the end of a “Shemitah” year. Less than 30 days later came “Black Monday” the greatest percentage crash in Wall Street history.

Is Cahn predicting doom and gloom on Sept. 13, 2015? He’s careful to avoid a prediction, saying, “In the past, this ushered in the worst collapses in Wall Street history. What will it bring this time? Again, as before, the phenomenon does not have to manifest at the next convergence. But, at the same time, and again, it is wise to take note.”

So what is going to happen this time? We will just have to wait and see.

But without a doubt so many of the same patterns that we witnessed just prior to the financial crash of 2008 are happening again right before our very eyes.

At least now you know what everyone is talking about.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  And now that you DO know what everyone is talking about, please allow us to suggest that you use the time between now and September 13th of this year to dust off your Bible and get to know its Author! We should point out, by the way, that if you have heard about the “Four Blood Moons” which are appearing last year and this, or if you have read the book by the same title, then you probably remember that September 13th of 2015 is the scheduled appearance of a solar eclipse, with the last blood moon of the four due to appear on September 28th, just 15 days later. The solar eclipse will appear on the Feast of Trumpets on the Jewish calendar, and the last blood moon on the Feast of Tabernacles, two very important days for our Jewish brethren. Just a series of coincidences? Not a chance.
