The Gateway Pundit has been looking into the ‘students’ from the February 14, 2018 Florida school shooting who have been appearing on US and UK television shows this week. More below.

First, I wrote about the school shooting the other day and am far from alone in my thinking:

Yet, all we are getting is the anti-gun narrative:

How the media are rolling out this narrative by using these students is chilling.

On Monday, February 19, The Gateway Pundit‘s Kristinn Taylor took a look at the students, CBS News and, in the UK, ITV’s Good Morning Britain. Taylor’s article, ‘Photos => Student School Massacre Survivors and CBS Reporter Party Like Rock Stars’, is a must-read.

Excerpts follow, emphases mine.

Remember, 17 people — students and faculty — died, yet:

The photos featuring CBS reporter Gisela Perez and the students were posted by CBS This Morning staffer Caroline West and student activist Cameron Kasky. The photos come off as if they were promo stills for Glee: The High School Massacre.

Notice Gisela Perez’s expression below. Weird and puzzling.

Is that a ‘Get Trump’ look?

Look at them giggling below:

That image came from either 4chan or 8chan. It reads:

The world is a stage. She, and everyone else, is an actor and a Drama major. This was the same day of the rally. You can tell she’s just totally broken up about 17 of her peers being ‘brutally murdered’.

That ‘she’ is the girl in the middle. She looks a bit like the women shown below, but, if so, then, she is older than 18:

Nonetheless, point taken:

The ‘students’ had a good weekend and one of the group managed to hear from at least one celebrity, The Gateway Pundit says:

In just a few days they have become celebrated heroes of the anti-Trump resistance and are acting and being feted like rock stars. In fact rock stars (or a pop star in this case) are reaching out to them, “I just want to thank @justinbieber for being so kind to our movement since last night. He and I had some trouble because my third grade girlfriend was much more interested in him than she was in me, but he and I have gotten over that. We have each other. #NeverAgain”

The same student:

activist Kasky mentions the students have “practiced” in a reply to someone concerned they will be taken advantage of by President Trump, “We’re not afraid of people trying to exploit us. We’ve practiced. We know their slimy tactics. Thankfully, most news networks we’ve worked with are interested in telling the right stories. I am eternally grateful for that. Keep an eye out. Thank you”

Late Sunday night — early Monday morning UK time — other students appeared on the ITV show, Good Morning Britain:

The Gateway Pundit article points out:

The bug on the screen says the interview was ‘live’ indicating it was way past midnight in Florida. Who is booking these kids for round the clock interviews as if this is the closing weeks of a presidential campaign? Again, this is just days out from a massacre and these kids are being prepped, paraded and partied with–leaving them no time to grieve.

Grieve? Just think of the doors opening for a media career! Maybe acting, too! The possibilities are endless.

The same lad who heard from Justin Bieber got a tweet from Jim Carrey later. He replied:

Thank you. I promise we will bring eternal sunshine to the minds of millions sending their kids to school in the morning.

My word. Who fed him that line?

That same day, journalist Lucian Wintrich wrote a piece for The Gateway Pundit and focussed on the lad in the group whose father is a retired FBI agent. His article is also a must-read — ‘EXPOSED: School Shooting Survivor Turned Activist David Hogg’s Father in FBI, Appears To Have Been Coached On Anti-Trump Lines [VIDEO]’.

Emphases are in the original from this point:

David Hogg has been astonishingly articulate and highly skilled at propagating a new anti-Conservative/anti-Trump narrative behind the recent school shooting. Few have seen this type of rapid media play before, and when they have it has come from well-trained political operatives and MSM commentators.

Immediately, these students-turned-activists threw up some red flags.

In what was initially as an incredibly odd move for a high school student, Hogg’s vehemently defended the FBI and placed the blame squarely on the President’s shoulders…. before admitting that his father was in the FBI.

“I think it’s disgusting, personally. My father’s a retired FBI agent and the FBI are some of the hardest working individuals I have ever seen in my life,” proclaimed David Hogg to CNN.

“It’s wrong that the president is blaming them for this.”

According to this lad, President Donald Trump is to blame because he is in charge of the FBI.

Lucian Wintrich is on fire over this (emphases in purple mine):

Anyone who has been following the news could tell you that many in the FBI have been working against the president from the start, with the most notable case involving collusion between the FBI, Obama Administration, and the Clinton campaign’s to push the false ‘verification’ of the junk Steele Dossier. It has also been widely reported that the FBI received tips well in advance of the Flordia school shooting and decided, for whatever reason, not to act.

The fault for this tragedy lies squarely on the shoulder’s of the FBI, who could have prevented this back in January.

Adding to the credibility of Hogg, in a recently uncovered early cut from one of his interviews it appears he was heavily coached on lines and is merely reciting a script. Frequently seen in the footage mouthing the lines he should be reciting. Hogg becomes flustered multiple times, is seen apologizing, and asking for re-takes.

Wintrich posted the video, which you can see here.

Wintrich concludes with an essential point, which he put in bold type:

Why would the child of an FBI agent be used as a pawn for anti-Trump rhetoric and anti-gun legislation? Because the FBI is only looking to curb YOUR Constitutional rights and INCREASE their power. We’ve seen similar moves by them many times over. This is just another disgusting example of it.

Yes, indeed.

Watch. This is going to blow up spectacularly.

What I want to know is if the kids were paid and, if so, how much.

More soon on other real dangers causing mass shootings, especially those involving young perpetrators. Again, it’s not guns.


Brendan Dilley is a Congressional candidate in Arizona and YourVoice™ America Co-host.

He receives intelligence messages from a source he keeps anonymous. Dilley’s Twitter account has many positive messages about life. His Periscopes have the intel data.

Someone on 8chan watches the videos then summarises the content. I’ve read this intel several times over the past few days and found it interesting enough to share.

The source page is here. Excerpts follow, emphases mine.

First, the introduction:

Brendan Dilley has an Intel Source that has been proven to be accurate several times over the last month or so. The source is not Q, but acknowledges that Q is legit. This source in the past only claims to be a government contractor, but was allowed by his bosses to leak this intel out. For example, here is one of the latest accurate predictions:

Brenden Dilley Intel Source 1/17


We’ve got media indictments coming. There’s a large quantity of media involved with some very dark or disgusting things – corruption, willfully sharing fake news in exchange for money, (or) other far more deviant and disgusting things. This is the reason they fight so feverishly against the president

1/18 – Happening – Newsweek got raided

I will begin posting Synopses of the upcoming Periscopes on this thread…

The messages are quite long, so I recommend readers also go to 8chan and read them in full.

On January 18, the anonymous intel source discussed the NSA supercomputer Hammer, which has all sorts of data. This post concerns the Benghazi attack of September 11, 2012:

Obama will hang for his sins, this is way beyond this FISA Stuff
Where was Obama during Benghazi, NSA has the answer.”
“The HAMMER RAW INTEL has Obama and certain several others in a certain place”
“HAMMER pings all cells and mapped who was present and their location and more”
“HAMMER is a supercomputer”
Why are non-administration personnel present in top secret meetings is also part of the extra intel”
“Binney is a hero”
“William Binney creator of NSA Super Computers”
“During Benghazi, Hillary was at her Satanic Ritual, oops! They don’t allow cell phones at that event! With Many Celebs”
“Obama was elsewhere (not allowed to state’ where it is as it’s part of __ (I’m not authorized to say)”
They are screwed, Trump has the Intel

According to testimony given to the Senate Armed Services Committee in 2013 (see here and here),  neither Obama nor Hillary was present. In 2012, I recall reading that Obama either went to bed because he had a campaign commitment the next day in Las Vegas or the engagement was that evening and he had to fly out. Unfortunately, I cannot find the link.

The intel source then commented on Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, who announced his retirement in January:

“McCabe en route to his GITMO tour” …

The source predicted more media busts:

2 more HUGE MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR news organizations are on the hit list as far as being raided – that’s coming – just like Newsweek was today
Dilley – “For what?”
State secrets illegally being passed to non-state entities through these organizations
“2 of biggest – One is a paper, one is a news show

January 19‘s drop concerned Obama’s White House. This is particularly shocking:

Brenden Dilley Intel Source 1/19
Brendan claims he has more information he will drop in the future (not able to release at this time) that is WAY worse than the “memos”
But was able to release the following:
In previous administration, Over 100+ meetings involving unauthorized non-administration personnel discussing Top Secret/Classified Intel – Soros, Gates, Buffet, Rockefeller, Tony Podesta, The Chinese Military” (Citizens and Military Foreign Nationals)
Topics of discussion
Insider Trading
Top Secret Information
Advising the Cabal’s Money Men to move their assets etc so they would never lose
The Top Tier billionaires dictated policy to ensure that always made and never lost
Look at the bailout cash… Who got it?
Cabal told Obama what to do and as it was about to get done, Obama would e-mail them from an unsecured server and they would clean up “money-wise”
Obama traded secrets just like Hillary
BLM were taking instructions directly from Obama and his unsecured e-mail account
He had an unsecured account and was trading state secrets to the most wealthy people in order to profit himself

The January 22 drop covers Q, Robert Mueller, George Soros, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) and more. Excerpts follow:

Q is not a single person but an organization
According to Dilley, his Intel Source gives it to him straight and doesn’t attempt to convey information via cryptic messages …
Mueller will be getting a free pass as he WILL receive a Presidential Pardon
Mueller is doing what he’s doing to avoid his own prison time. He will always be remembered as “disgraced” no matter how many people he puts in prison
Adam Schiff is a traitor, answers to foreign actors
Soros doesn’t end up with a prison sentence – he’s being taken out (“catch a bullet”)
Alex Soros is useless without Soros money. Everything WILL be confiscated.
No text messages lost. Deep State trying to leverage a lie to discredit the memo. Basically they say no evidence and if DOJ offer it up, Deep State say it’s lies and “texts are lost”. 3 NSA programs have the texts and they cannot be deleted, all Hillary’s emails are intact.
All Deep State e-mails and messages are stored in _ program and cannot be deleted, the raw intel cannot be tampered with.
Source is authorized to “release” FROM THE TOP
Trump is in control… the Intelligence Apparatus is in control
The main problem to solve – How do you redpill the country, thus avoiding too much Civil Unrest?

The January 23 drop recaps what Q wrote around that time. Here are a few things Q did not write about:

Brenden Dilley Intel Source 1/23
There has been a couple of traitors within the Trump Cabinet and he now knows who they “were”.
They were leveraged unfortunately from things that had happened to them in the past. Please do NOT guess or speculate. Their names will not be disclosed.
They were helping Deep State by quarterbacking stuff against the President
Deep State had insurance policies by leveraging information from their wiretaps
While Trump had been diligently building his group, Deep State has been corrupting his cabinet because they had the intel as to “who were going where”
Wiretaps helped them get ahead to a degree

Reaffirmaton of General Flynn being a great patriot.
General Flynn and Admiral Rogers both playing a part to protect this country.
Also thank Bill Binney who developed the technology needed to bust these guys …
All this data can be dropped now because of yesterday’s Q Posts and the revelation of “Secret Society”
Not easy to discuss but we are slowly preparing Americans for these drops.
You will never know the full scope of this and “you don’t need to”
Confirmed TruPundit story about FBI texts regarding physically harming the President.
FBI is TOAST and major housecleaning will occur similar to what happened with the CIA. FBI may not be able to survive this.
Christopher Wray threatening to “walk out” on FBI/Sessions is FAKE NEWS. Disinfo is necessary.
Some “Trusted” journalists that patriots listen to are DELIBERATELY fed disinfo to keep scent off the main trail. Refrain from roasting these journalists – this being done on purpose.
The Intel Source has actually given Dilley “Fake News”, but he can “sense” it’s fake and refused to report it on his Periscope.
95% is legit, but 5% Dilley can TELL. Dilley calls him on his BULL.
TruPundit (Thomas Paine) is LEGIT. He was a former FBI “spook” and even HE is getting shocked by what he’s finding out.
Trey Gowdy is playing his role. Mueller’s investigation is legit and he’s trying to be honest.
Get away from Paradigm on who is “Good vs Bad”… find out who can get leveraged.
None of this is a current threat. It’s being released now BECAUSE it’s past tense. So relax.
McCabe is in a “Black Site in the lower 48th” “singing” (Somewhere in the Continental U.S.)
Black Site = a place that exists that’s not supposed to exist.
He’s no longer in GITMO but he’s not getting the Witness Protection Treatment
He did not enjoy his GITMO visit, which is why he’s Singing and no longer there.
We are starting to let words out that is preparing the public: TREASON, Secret Society
Memo will confirm what most red-pilled people already knew.

I wrote about the ‘secret society’ a few days ago.

On January 25, Brendan Dilley tweeted about military tribunals, which could well mean capital punishment:

12 have been sat for 39 days.
Obama former cabinet beginning to lawyer up.
McCabe singing. One of the names he gave up is now the informant that is being referred to.
19 charges. 3 are involved in criminal enterprise and sponsor of terrorism. BHO
2:09 AM – 25 Jan 2018

Giant RICO case incoming for rest
Tribunals for top perpetrators
POTUS authorized huge red pill for public
Flynn sitting on dark evidence
2:18 AM – 25 Jan 2018

A drop later on January 25 has more about the military tribunal — and Julian Assange:

“12 have been sat for 39 days.”
Meaning – 12 members of the military tribunal have been sat for 39 days reviewing the information
They have not just been twiddling their thumbs
These are NOT jurors!
Why 12? 12 members are required on the panel in order to entertain the DEATH PENALTY
Normally, that number is 9
Dilley claims he’s known that since day 1 (we’re on day 39) …
More “lawyering up” for the “cabinet members”
A lot of them don’t know what’s coming
They now have a new “source” from the FBI.
The reason why they have this new source is because of McCabe’s singing which gave them this guy that basically was a “keyhole” to everything
McCabe delivered him.
This “guy” has everything.
Obama pissed himself when McCabe delivered this “guy”
There are approximately 19 charges for Obama alone 3 of which involve “criminal enterprise sponsors of terrorism”
Assange photos and videos of him at the Ecuadorian embassy pre-recorded. He’s no longer there.
Expect Pictures and videos of Assange coming out because they need them to keep looking over there
Nobody is getting pardoned except for (maybe) Mueller
Flynn won’t even need to get pardoned
Thomas Paine FISA memo drop today confirmed
Not a drop… Dilley Opinion – “Christopher Wray is a SAVAGE. Wait till the OIG Report comes out.”

Someone posted a timeline to corroborate the above information about the military tribunals:

Connect the dots.
Dec. 16th DJT leaves for Camp David for overnight stay.
Dec. 17th Atl airport power outage.
Dec. 17th DJT leaves CD at night heading to WH.
Dec. 19th Amtrak derailment.
Jan. 25th “12 have been sat for 39 days.”
39 days before Jan. 25th is Dec. 17th.

To paint the picture.

BHO was detained in Atl at the airport and transported to Camp David where DJT was waiting for him with a military tribunal. The Clowns derailed a train in retaliation.

Yesterday he retained legal council after he found out who is the key witness that was provided by McCabe.

The January 27 drop is particularly interesting, featuring George Soros, Hillary’s campaign supremo John ‘Skippy’ Podesta (now writing for the Washington Post) and sharp words from Dilley’s intel source to those reusing intel content without attribution on social media:

… Another Soros may have been taken, not Georgy.
George Soros believes that he could beat Trump.
George Soros WILL be taken out but it won’t be U.S. Military, nor even a U.S. Citizen.
It will happen from another country’s military who is “absolutely fed up”
Don’t assume that if Intel gives the “last name” of a person, you automatically figure out the individual.
You’re given small pieces of information deliberately because they don’t want to give out the whole farm. People get overzealous to try to solve and assume the intel is regarding particular individual. Instead of taking the “raw intel” the way it is, and staying open, people want to “play investigator” and “piece it all together”.
“You get going down these paths, it’s not good.”
“You go down a rabbit hole that’s not accurate, and then when the truth comes out, you get disappointed.”
I thought I heard “this”. You didn’t. You heard something, interpreted “this”, ran with it, and now you’re here.
Podesta didn’t write that article that came out the other day. Robby Mook wrote it, Hillary helped.
Skippy was in ill health at the time. He is not doing so well health-wise
The intelligence community is annoyed because some of you guys aren’t normally watching Dilley scopes and only in there to watch for Intel, write things down, then publish it on YouTube as if it were your own. You start to build your own brands around it.
The Intelligence Community know you who you are and they don’t like it.
It’s not a good look whether you’re doing it to Q or Dilley’s Intel Source or other sources.
“Annoyed” is not even the right word.
They don’t like it because you guys SCREW IT UP and you change things, add thing, and you start being “conspiritorial” instead of just taking the information.
With the Intel, people are trying to play “Clue” instead of just watching what’s happening (and) having some faith, they start stealing information and pretending that someone told it to them. They’re capitalizing on it. Good Luck!
If you’re taking that information and you’re rebranding it and putting it out as your own, good luck, it’s not going to end well for you.
They know where you live and they know where you put your money. They have everything. You’re not anonymous at any point ever when you’re on the Internet.

Direct Quote from Intel:
“Sadly, people see a surname, add who they wish it to be, then spout it elsewhere and devalue the intel. Seen some shocking copy/paste style jobs and for the record, Skippy is in ill health at the moment.”
Skippy was in a military medical facility till Monday, just left. Waiting to hear where he is right now. His brother is in the lower 48 in Military Custody.”
GITMO journeys are to get the intel, they are not yet permanent residents. Again, for the record, we have never said they were there permanently. We said they had visits, some for much longer than others. There are so many moving parts on this that it changes not by day or week but by the minute.”
MSM is the disinformation campaign to rock patriots.”
“Example, POTUS just had to clarify he never wanted to sack Mueller. I think he has said it about 40 times+. Yet media runs a hack piece and he has to say it again.”
“David Duke Disavow stuff – Same Way. They are just a smear campaign to slow the Trump Train.”
“Podesta Op-Ed (Hillary really) is the same crap as is Obama. They wanna push a narrative that they’re untouchable and they get the low-educated CNN and Company to fall for it. Same with this John Kerry shit that’s weeks old info, yet is churned out. They’re trying to muddy the waters and put blood in the water. Disinformation is a tactic – both sides. However, our side is done to protect assets. Their side is to cause carnage.”
Old news being passed as current.
We’re livid with people “repacking the Intel as theirs” and adding lies and misinformation to it. It distorts the facts.

I will have more from Brendan Dilley’s intel source tomorrow.

Recently, the following graphic has been trending about how the American media empire fits underneath powerful global socio-political organisations:

Click on the Swiss Propaganda Research link included in Assange’s tweet to see the full image.


We think that Big Media are trustworthy. Big Media get told what narratives to push. Anything that goes against the grain of globalism — e.g. anti-globalist President Donald Trump — must be hammered.

Look at the fifth column from the right. For those who think that Disney has our interests at heart, think again. Marvel, a subsidiary, is in that column. Notice how the characters and narratives in comic books have changed over the past few years? That’s why.

Eric Schmidt

Equally important is the social media column on the far right.

Eric Schmidt, although recently resigned from Google’s parent company, Alphabet …

… hit a trifecta by participating in Bilderberg, the CFR and the Trilateral Commission.

Schmidt’s announcement makes it look as if he is going to pretty much leave the organisation, however, ZeroHedge tells us more (emphases in the original):

He will become a technical adviser to Google parent Alphabet, while continuing to serve on the board …

The question is – is Schmidt getting ready for 2020?

The rest of the article is damning. Please read it.

Two more excerpts follow.

The first tells us more about Schmidt:

On the Wikipedia link you can read more about Mr. Schmidt, one of the richest person on earth, an advocate of net neutrality, a corporate manager and owner of a lot, a collector of modern art, etc. And you can read about his heavy involvement with Hillary Clinton’s recent campaign and the Obama administration and about Schmidt’s involvement with Pentagon, too.

Eric Emerson Schmidt’s name is associated with the world’s largest and most systematic data collecting search engine, Google, that millions upon millions use. School children, teachers, parents, media people, politicians and you and I all daily “google” what we need to know.

While we do that, Google tracks everything about us and if you are searching for a thing to buy, say a camera, be sure that camera ads will shortly after turn up on your screen. And they know everything we are interested in through our “googling” including political interests and hobbies.

He has also travelled to North Korea, no doubt with the blessing of the United States, to plug their government elite into the Web (old photo):

The second discusses the implications of Google’s algorithms to de-rank certain online pages to censor unwanted views. The broader context in the ZeroHedge article is that Schmidt wants to wreck aspects of Russian media as seen in a video:

This very powerful corporate leader with a open political orientation has decided – as will be seen 58 seconds into the video – that the Internet and his hugely dominating search engine a) shall cave in to political pressure, b) de-rank at least these two Russian media organizations because c) he knows they are “propaganda outlets” (it isn’t discussed at all or compared with US or other countries’ media) and d) in the name of political correctness it is OK to limit the freedom of opinion-formation.

That said, Schmidt’s strategy applies to everyday users as well (purple highlight mine):

Mr Schmidt, you are blatantly and clearly interfering in the rights of millions, if not billions, to know. To seek information. To shape their opinions.

With your few words you abuse your almost unlimited digital, political, economic and ‘defence’ power – much much worse than if you had sexually abused just one woman for which older men today are fired or choose to resign.

This has to be stated irrespective of whether we like or dislike Russia and its media. That is not the issue here. This has to be fought against because it is slippery slope, Mr Schmidt.

You ought to stand up and use your powers with principles and vision: To protect the Internet against every and each reduction of freedom. Freedom for all, also the fake news-makers however we define them. Yes, there is another solution for that problem and it is not your paternalism.

It just cannot be for you to decide what is good for others and collect data about us all which is only good for you.

How many of us still use Google? Too many. Why not try Duck Duck Go and Start Page first?

Question media’s motives

The media overview and a tranche of it should make us question their motives, via both traditional and online means.


Regular readers know that I have covered several exposés from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas about the media and Democrat activists.

Their last one was about the Washington Post, in November 2017.

Their new one is all about Twitter.

On January 17, 2018, Twitter was among the big social media companies appearing before the United States Senate:

In practice, ‘extremist propaganda’ often refers to messages and news supporting President Donald Trump.

It also includes the president himself:

More detail follows.

James O’Keefe asks Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey a question:

Here are a few more teasers about Twitter (language alert), handy to forward to friends and family who don’t have time to watch the longer videos:

Twitter dislikes patriots:

Okay, O’Keefe meant ‘rogue’, but note that Twitter is not questioning the video content:

Twitter users complained. In return, the company manipulated the trending hashtag results:

Twitter cannot look at everything, but, rest assured, they have a few hundred people looking at obscene images. Do they keep those images? Where do the images go next? Hmm. Sounds potentially nefarious, but, then, people should not be sending that type of stuff in the first place.

Without further ado, Project Veritas issued the first video (8:16 minutes) on January 10. It is an interview with Clay Haynes, senior network security engineer, who discusses helping the DOJ with any potential enquiries regarding Trump (written summary):

The second video (15:14 minutes), issued on January 11, features policy manager Olinda Hassan discussing censorship of ‘sh*tty people’. Pranay Singh, direct messaging engineer, explains how they do it. Mihai Florea, a software engineer, admits that half of Twitter employees want to delete Trump’s account for good; the other half want to keep it. Mo Norai, a former content review agent, says that Twitter is between 90% to 99% anti-Trump (written summary):

The third and final video (9:37 minutes) was posted on January 15. It features Pranay Singh, direct messaging engineer, discussing obscene images and messages (written summary):

One thing that has struck viewers of these videos is the number of foreigners in them, pervasive throughout Silicon Valley. They might be easier to work with where matters of censorship are concerned. Still, one cannot help but take exception to someone whose homeland is not the United States referring to Twitter users representing half the American population as ‘sh*tty people’.

By the way, O’Keefe’s new book, American Pravda, discusses the four Project Veritas media exposés. His publisher, Macmillan, has a summary which says, in part:

The book not only contests the false narratives frequently put forth by corporate media, it documents the consequences of telling the truth in a world that does not necessarily want to hear it. O’Keefe’s enemies attack with lawsuits, smear campaigns, political prosecutions, and false charges in an effort to shut down Project Veritas. For O’Keefe, every one of these attacks is a sign of success.

American Pravda puts the myths and misconceptions surrounding O’Keefe’s activities to rest and will make you rethink every word you hear and read in the so-called mainstream press.

O’Keefe recently told Alex Jones that he always needs new undercover journalists but warned that it is hard, potentially dangerous, work that most people would not be able to do:

American Pravda also has examples of social media users buoying support for President Trump during the 2016 election. He devotes a whole chapter to the contributors at The_Donald, known as ‘weaponised autists’ (link from The_Donald has a three-page excerpt). A lot of them came from 4chan, which is where the term originated.

If you haven’t read or heard much about this story, it’s not surprising. Alternatively, perhaps you heard or read something about it that is inaccurate, with omissions.

Twitter’s platform is great. Twitter’s censorship is not.


Last week, I posted the first video of the ‘American Pravda’ series made by James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team.

The second video, again about the New York Times but also YouTube came out on October 11, 2017:

The YouTube chap — Earnest Pettie, Brand and Diversity Curation Lead — says that his team provides ‘human inputs’ into YouTube. That means that they sometimes intervene to cause certain videos to trend, running a script (computer program) to bypass or manipulate YouTube’s algorithms.

Pettie was also full of praise for the subject of the first American Pravda video, Nick Dudich, who is no longer a New York Times employee, thanks to what the short film revealed.

Strangely, afterward — my first post on this series has more on Dudich’s dismissal — Dean Baquet, the NYT’s executive editor — accused James O’Keefe of lying:

I agree with O’Keefe. Surely Baquet should have thanked him for revealing the truth. Dudich was disingenuous in the video. O’Keefe never interviewed him, other Project Veritas team members did.

Project Veritas will be releasing more American Pravda videos in due course. Stay tuned.


As I wrote yesterday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania spent part of Saturday, September 2, 2017 in Texas, meeting with officials but, more importantly, talking with Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Yesterday’s post has a news update.

Today’s post has photos and videos. Trump definitely made more friends in Texas with that trip.

This image comes courtesy of The_Donald from someone who saw it on a left-wing Houston website:

This is how the day went.

First, the media kerfuffle over the First Lady’s footwear showed no signs of abating. A particularly scathing — and inaccurate — article appeared on Yahoo, ‘Melania Trump wears $1,590 dress and stilettos (again!) for second trip to Houston’:

On her first visit to Houston after the hurricane, the first lady took a lot of flak on the internet and elsewhere in the media for her shoes. Although she tried to pull together a utilitarian look for the occasion, her stilettos threw people off.

False. The Trumps did not go to Houston last week. They went to Corpus Christi and Austin. Houston was too waterlogged and emergency crews too busy.

The New York Post described Saturday’s stilettos:

Defying the fashion scolds who expressed horror at her footwear earlier in the week, Melania Trump chose a pair of snakeskin Manolo Blahnik pumps for her stroll to Air Force One Saturday as she headed once again toward the Hurricane Harvey disaster zone.

Trump Organization employee Lynne Patton, who also made a video last year about her family’s long association with Trump, tweeted:

Speaking of footwear, here’s an irresistible digression:

It wasn’t just Mrs Trump’s shoes that freaked out the media. They also had a go at her for wearing sunglasses on a cloudy day in Washington, or as the press pool put it, ‘dark’. Well, it was sunny down South.

She took two caps with her: one for Texas and one for Louisiana, which had an appliqué of the state on the front.

Mrs Trump’s office provided this statement afterward, which details where the First Couple went and who they saw:

Then the Trumps, Dr Ben Carson (Secretary for Housing and Urban Development) and Betsy DeVos (Secretary for Education) left from Joint Base Andrews and arrived in Houston later that morning. They flew in to Ellington Field, Texas (another video here) and went from there to the NRG Stadium, one of the big shelters for Harvey victims. This video shows what the residential area looks like (25 seconds in).

At NRG Stadium, the Trumps made many new friends. There were lots of selfies. The children particularly gravitated towards the president. I bet it killed CNN to cover this:

(By nightfall, CNN’s — and MSNBC’s — coverage returned to Russian collusion, with no further mention of the Texas-Louisiana trip.)

This was in the play area of the stadium’s shelter. CBSN’s video has a bit more footage than CNN’s of the kids when the Trumps entered. They can’t get to him quickly enough! You can also see Governor Abbott with a little girl on his lap. He’s giving her a ride in his wheelchair:

First Lady Melania has young admirers, too:

The Trumps handed out hot dog and potato chip lunches to grateful Houstonians. (Vegetarian options are unpopular in the city.)

Before doing so, Trump answered a few questions from the media. This is important, because he told the media, ‘Have a good time, everybody’, not the hurricane victims (25-second mark):

The president revived a joke from the Republican primary season in 2016 about the size of his hands:

Look at all the men. They can hardly wait to shake Trump’s hand, talk to him and get a selfie. More from CNN (no doubt fuming):

This video shows more of Trump’s new fans. Skip to the five-minute mark. More conversations, more selfies:

At the beginning of this video, Trump sat and spoke to a little lad enthralled by a camera:

Governor Abbott was also delighted to be able to meet with so many people:

Trump was asked to autograph the wall in the rescue centre before he left. He duly obliged.

The Trumps then went to Pearland (pron. ‘Pear-land’), where they helped distribute supplies in a drive-through operation at the First Church of Pearland. Admittedly, Trump tells the first man — but only him — ‘Have a good time!’ As the man’s wife (?) was busy filming the president, it could be they are not suffering immense loss but needed interim emergency supplies. Note that Trump loads the vehicles himself:

This next video is touching. A lady tells Trump she prays for him every day. Note how she keeps her hand on his arm:

A young woman wrote into The_Donald to say that the lady is her great aunt:

My great-aunt got to meet President Trump and he helped load her car with supplies. She says he was one of the most compassionate people she ever met!

The president also thanked the church’s volunteers and reminded them that he officially proclaimed Sunday, September 3 as a national day of prayer (another version featuring huge cheers is here). Senator Ted Cruz, Trump’s last Republican rival last year, stands on the right:

Afterwards, the Trumps went to meet with residents of a neighbourhood impacted by Harvey, which is in the first minute of the video below. Trump spoke with them for several minutes to listen to their experiences:

The Trumps also took time for a photo opportunity. Incidentally, the shirt the man is wearing below came from Infowars in a limited run post-election:

I’m not sure whether this next video was filmed at the beginning or the end of the Texas visit, but the first couple also spent time with the US Coast Guard:

The Trumps then flew to Louisiana, where they were welcomed by Governor and Mrs John Bel Edwards (another copy of the video is here):

They went to the National Guard Armory in Lake Charles to thank the military, first-responders and Cajun Navy for their efforts in helping people affected by flooding there once Harvey turned into a tropical storm. They also received a briefing on progress thus far.

Here they are arriving at the armoury. You’d think film or pop stars were inside the vehicle. I’ve never heard a crowd cheer a president and first lady so loudly and enthusiastically:

In Lake Charles, the First Lady got support for her footwear:

This short video has various clips of the crowd and Trump speaking to various people involved in the relief effort:

The next video shows Trump met people and shook hands until the last moment before returning to Washington:


These are some of the best photos ever. As soon as the woman in the pink shirt saw Trump, she screamed, ‘Dooonaald!’ and grabbed his arm, which she held onto. Everyone who met the Trumps showed incredible enthusiasm, which I hope will translate into electoral support when the time comes.

While she was taking the selfie, she said, ‘I just met my President!’:

Here’s the selfie. In my humble estimation, it’s the photo of the year. This cannot be scripted:

Brief interview:

The Left — Dems included — won’t like that one bit. Those ladies are far from alone.

You can see more photos from the day at The Conservative Treehouse, the Daily Mail and


In July 2017, a then-Google employee, James Damore, wrote a ten-page essay, including footnotes, about Google’s approach to diversity.

While other sites posted abridged versions, you can read ‘Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber’ in full here and here: recommended reading for all.

Consider that things like this are happening — or could so easily happen — i.e. blacklists, suggested in this supposed joke:


James Damore’s perspective is one of promoting diversity but doing it in a realistic, individualised way that looks at people’s strengths and perceived weaknesses — and making good use of both. He wrote that his commentary pertained only to the Mountain View, California location where he works.

Two excerpts follow. The first is the introduction:

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes. When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber.

Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.

The second is this brief part from his detailed conclusion:

I hope it’s clear that I’m not saying that diversity is bad, that Google or society is 100% fair, that we shouldn’t try to correct for existing biases, or that minorities have the same experience of those in the majority. My larger point is that we have an intolerance for ideas and evidence that don’t fit a certain ideology. I’m also not saying that we should restrict people to certain gender roles; I’m advocating for quite the opposite: treat people as individuals, not as just another member of their group (tribalism).

Heavy summarised his detailed conclusion as follows:

He suggested Google do the following: De-moralize diversity; stop alienating conservatives; confront its biases; stop restricting programs and classes to certain genders or races; have an open and honest discussion about the costs and benefits of its diversity programs; focus on psychological safety, not just race/gender diversity; de-emphasize empathy; prioritize intention; be open about the science of human nature; and reconsider making Unconscious Bias training mandatory for promo committees.


This is a summary of the reaction by Damore’s colleagues:

On Saturday, August 5, Business Insider reported on the reaction from certain Google employees (tweets at the link):

Google employees are up in arms after a senior engineer at the company penned an anti-diversity manifesto that has spread through the company like wildfire.

At that time, no one knew the author’s identity because only excerpts were available. Business Insider contacted Google for comment:

A Google spokesperson referred Business Insider to internal memos posted by Google’s head of diverisity, Danielle Brown, as well as to an internal post by Ari Balogh, a Google VP of engineering.

Business Insider found out about the document from Vice‘s Motherboard, whose team saw it at Gizmodo.

Dilbert’s Scott Adams tweeted the link to the Business Insider article:

On Monday, August 7, Google fired Damore. Bloomberg reports:

James Damore, the Google engineer who wrote the note, confirmed his dismissal in an email, saying that he had been fired for “perpetuating gender stereotypes.” He said he’s “currently exploring all possible legal remedies” …

Earlier on Monday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent a note to employees that said portions of the memo “violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.” But he didn’t say if the company was taking action against the employee. A Google representative, asked about the dismissal, referred to Pichai’s memo.

Damore’s 10-page memorandum accused Google of silencing conservative political opinions and argued that biological differences play a role in the shortage of women in tech and leadership positions. It circulated widely inside the company and became public over the weekend, causing a furor that amplified the pressure on Google executives to take a more definitive stand.

After the controversy swelled, Danielle Brown, Google’s new vice president for diversity, integrity and governance, sent a statement to staff condemning Damore’s views and reaffirmed the company’s stance on diversity. In internal discussion boards, multiple employees said they supported firing the author, and some said they would not choose to work with him, according to postings viewed by Bloomberg News.

“We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company,” Brown said in the statement. “We’ll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul.”

It looks as if Google might have been trying to protect themselves:

The memo and surrounding debate comes as Google fends off a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Labor alleging the company systemically discriminates against women. Google has denied the charges, arguing that it doesn’t have a gender gap in pay, but has declined to share full salary information with the government. According to the company’s most recent demographic report, 69 percent of its workforce and 80 percent of its technical staff are male.

However, Bloomberg stated that the subject of diverse opinions at Google arose during their shareholder meeting in June (emphases mine):

A shareholder asked executives whether conservatives would feel welcome at the company. Executives disagreed with the idea that anyone wouldn’t.

“The company was founded under the principles of freedom of expression, diversity, inclusiveness and science-based thinking,” Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt said at the time. “You’ll also find that all of the other companies in our industry agree with us.”

Yes, and that is the problem. I have read anecdotally from conservative Silicon Valley employees that they keep their heads down and get on with the work. They said they would not dare to discuss social issues or politics and do their best to fit in with the prevailing culture because they like their work.

Heavy says that Damore told a New York Times reporter:

he will likely take legal action against Google. He said he believes the company acted illegally by firing him.

“I have a legal right to express my concerns about the terms and conditions of my working environment and to bring up potentially illegal behavior, which is what my document does,” Damore told the New York Times. He said he wrote the memo to start an “honest discussion” about what he believes to be Google’s intolerance for ideas that don’t fit into its left-leaning biases, according to the Times.

Damore told the Times he submitted a complaint to the National Labor Relations Board before he was fired, claiming Google’s upper management was “misrepresenting and shaming me in order to silence my complaints.” He said it is “illegal to retaliate” against a complaint made to the NLRB.

An account to help with his legal fees is now open on

Twitter lit up.

Alternative media’s Mike Cernovich had this pertinent comment:

A young woman took exception to Google employees who were happy about Damore’s dismissal:

A professor of evolutionary psychology defended Damore:

Who is James Damore?

Heavy tells us that Damore is originally from Illinois.

He graduated from the prestigious — and rigorous — Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in 2007.

He was also a chess champion in his youth:

As a child, Damore was a chess champion, earning the FIDE Master title, putting him in the >99th percentile, according to his CV. He won regional tournaments in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, and finished second in the Nation Youth Action 2003 Chess Tournament.

He graduated with high honours from the University of Illinois:

he graduated in 2010 in the top 3 percent of his class with a degree in molecular and cellular biology, according to his CV. He graduated as a James Scholar and was given the Bronze Tablet, the highest awards given to graduates, he said.

He then enrolled in a graduate programme at Harvard University:

Damore also pursued his Ph.D. in systems biology from Harvard University in from 2011 to 2013, according to his Linkedin profile. He is listed in the alumni section of the Harvard Systems Biology Ph.D. program, but it is not clear if he completed the degree.

He was employed as a researcher at Harvard, MIT and Princeton:

He published two research papers while working at Jeff Gore’s biophysics laboratory at MIT in 2011 and 2012: “Understanding microbial cooperation” and “A slowly evolving host moves first in symbiotic interactions.”

He says that he has “Senior or graduate level knowledge of biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, game theory, and computer programming.”

He was delighted to be offered a job at Google in December 2013:

“Flying home tonight and starting at Google in two weeks, so excited,” he wrote on Facebook. Damore worked on infrastructure for Google’s search product, according to the New York Times.

Heavy delved into Damore’s Facebook musings and posted a few of them. Not surprisingly, this genius is an introvert, although not without friends. He also tries to make life as efficient a process as possible. He does not like to waste time. He is also an artist and posts his charcoal drawings on Facebook.

Instant popularity and job offers

James Damore’s Google memo has made him a national hero.

He has attracted the attention of many online, including Julian Assange:

Gab — similar to Twitter but less censorious — also wants to interview Damore:

It looks as if James Damore has an even brighter future ahead of him. I wish him all the best and applaud him for his guts.


Yesterday’s post covered Day 1 of Donald Trump’s and Emmanuel Macron’s first G20.

I also wrote about the riots and looting which occurred in host city Hamburg during the conference.

Day 2 — Saturday, July 8, 2017 — was equally eventful for world leaders, especially President Trump.

While Big Media were banging on about Russia or Trump’s mental health, some outlets actually reported on the G20 and two major victories for the American president (emphases mine below):

Hamburg (AFP) – US President Donald Trump won key concessions on climate and trade Saturday from world leaders at the most fractious G20 summit to date, in exchange for preserving the unity of the club of major industrialised and emerging economies.

In a final statement agreed by all 20 economies, 19 members including Russia, China and the European Union acknowledged Trump’s decision to go his own way on taking the US out of the 2015 Paris climate accord.

But they also accommodated Washington’s wish to “work closely with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently”.

While renewing a key anti-protectionist pledge, the communique for the first time underlined the right of countries to protect their markets with “legitimate trade defence instruments”.

Such wording gives room for Trump to push on with his “America First” policy

Everyone in the media predicted that America First would not play overseas. Everyone in the media was wrong.

The Conservative Treehouse has an excellent analysis of what Trump’s wins mean not only for America but also allies who think similarly:

Team Trump focuses exclusively on bilateral trade deals with specific policy only looking out for the national interests of the United States and those who are allied with a similar perspective.

Under President Trump’s Trade positions exfiltration of U.S. national wealth is essentially stopped. This puts the multinational corporations, globalists who previously took a stake-hold in the U.S. economy with intention to export the wealth, in a position of holding interest of an asset they cannot exploit

There are trillions of dollars in economic activity now being restructured by President Trump. The downstream consequences are seismic shifts in geopolitical and strategic alliances. Through the use of economics America will engage in a process of protecting allies and simultaneously advancing freedom and democracy.

Simply put this approach destroys the cancer of elitist controlled leftist economic construct; which are entirely intended to benefit a small number of global elites who control the multinational banking and multinational corporate institutional systems …

Trump impressed Russian president Vladimir Putin during their meeting the previous day:

He was also taken with First Lady Melania Trump that evening:

On Day 2, Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May to discuss trade post-Brexit:

Theresa May has hailed the “powerful vote of confidence” in Britain Donald Trump and other world leaders have shown with their “strong desire” to strike new trade deals after Brexit.

The Prime Minister said she is “optimistic and positive” about a future pact with the US after the president said he believed an agreement could be reached “very, very quickly”.

Even before their meeting, Trump said:

I’d like to thank Prime Minister May for being with us. We’ve had tremendous talks. There is no country that could possibly be closer than our countries. And I just want to say thank you very much. We are working on a trade deal — a very, very big deal, a very powerful deal. Great for both countries. And I think we’ll have that done very, very quickly.

Meanwhile, Mrs Trump joined G20 spouses on a local tour before rejoining her husband at the conference:

The Daily Mail has more on Mrs Trump’s G20 attire, including stunning photographs.

Elsewhere, at the Vatican, Pope Francis fretted. He told Eugenio Scalfari, a journalist with Italy’s La Repubblica, of his concern about the G20. Leo Lyon Zagami, who is in the process of uncovering recent Vatican scandals (yes, he is a Mason but I will have more on his reporting), summarised and translated the article:

Pope Francis told him [Scalfari] during the encounter to be very concerned about the summit meeting of the “G20” in Hamburg, that witnessed President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, together for the first time.

Pope Francis said to Scalfari: “I’m afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers which have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Syria’s Assad in war”.

The Pope was also worried that the G20 might end mass immigration to Europe:

” … they fear an invasion of migrants. That’s why the G20 worries me.”

Then to save his idea of Europe, he promotes the destruction of the sovereignty of the single European countries, and the coming of a Federal Government for Europe, that will take over the decision making from the single countries: ”For this, and other reasons, I came to the conclusion that Europe must assume a federal structure. Laws and political behaviors arising here shall be decided by the Federal Government, and the Federal Parliament, not by individual confederated countries.”

That afternoon, a huge flap arose over Ivanka Trump presiding temporarily over a meeting when her father was called into a private one. The media — and abetted by NeverTrumpers (John Dean and Richard Painter) — went berserk:

Trump had addressed those attending the Women’s Entrepreneurship Finance Event then excused himself to attend the meeting. Afterwards, he returned.

Regardless, host Angela Merkel was bombarded with questions from the media. She explained that this is normal at a conference such as the G20:

Reaction from citizen journalists back home was outrage at the media:

Alternative media’s Jack Posobiec noted:

Media More Outraged at Ivanka Sitting in a Chair than Antifa Army Burning Hamburg

He wrote:

Today at the G20 meeting, Ivanka Trump briefly sat in a chair. The media utterly lost their minds. They also seemed to completely not notice the Antifa Army burning the streets of Hamburg outside the meeting.

Perhaps they do not think a woman should be representing the United States?

Ivanka was sitting in the back and then briefly joined the main table when the President had to step out, and the president of the World Bank started talking as the topic involved areas such as African development — areas that will benefit from the facility just announced by the World Bank.

When other leaders stepped out, their seats were also briefly filled by others, but the media didn’t seem to notice that, either.


Later that day, Trump tweeted:

Here is the White House transcript of the public remarks of that meeting.

USA Today reports that Trump spent much of Day 2 with Asian leaders:

HAMBURG — President Trump met with his Chinese counterpart at the G-20 summit Saturday, hoping to revamp a relationship that he once hoped could provide the key to resolving the North Korea crisis …

In a separate meeting Saturday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump also addressed what he called “the problem and menace of North Korea.”

Abe said the security situation in the region had become “increasingly severe.” Addressing Trump by his first name, Abe said he “would like to demonstrate the robust partnership as well as the bond between Japan and the United States.”

Trump’s final day of his second foreign trip took what his predecessor, Barack Obama, might have called an “Asia pivot.” Having already met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, Saturday afternoon’s meetings were dominated by Pacific Rim nations

President Widodo of Indonesia was delighted to meet with Trump. USA Today reported:

Meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Trump said the U.S. would soon be doing “a lot of business” with the Island nation. “We’re going to be doing a lot of deals together — trade deals,” Trump said.

Widodo said Trump had “millions of fans” in his country who wanted him to visit.

“We’ll get there,” Trump said. “It’s a place I’d like to go.”

Singapore’s prime minister, Lee Hsein Loong, must be equally as positive:

Trump said the U.S. had a “big relationship” with the small city-state, and he expected the relationship to “get bigger.”

Before leaving Hamburg, Mrs Trump tweeted:

This brief video has highlights of Trump’s G20 conference:

Although the media emphasised the negative …

… from watching G20 coverage on YouTube, Bernie Sanders and Green supporters in the US were pleasantly surprised to find out about the ceasefire in Syria that Trump and Putin negotiated on Day 1.

Former Senator Bob Dole (R – Kansas) had high praise for the American president’s trips to Poland and Germany:

The Trumps flew back to the White House:

When Trump reached the White House, the press asked the usual questions about Russian hacking. Give it a rest, guys! The president ignored them.

Earlier, at Joint Base Andrews, he retrieved a Marine’s cover in the strong wind:

Mrs Trump did not return to the White House with her husband. My guess is she went to collect 11-year-old Barron.

I’ll close with this:

Neither Trump nor Obama was ever in the military, but you can certainly see how differently they view the armed forces.

That view, in my estimation, will determine a shift in foreign intervention during the present administration. Any US action will be carefully considered.


On July 7 and 8, 2017, Angela Merkel hosted the G20 conference in Hamburg.

I covered the riots and looting yesterday.

Today’s post looks at the conference itself — a first for Presidents Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron.

On Thursday, July 6, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump spent the day in Poland. Later that day, he tweeted:

That evening, the Trumps flew to Hamburg, where the US president had meetings before the conference started:

One wonders if he and Merkel discussed the climate change pact. Only days before — on June 30 — the German chancellor appeared to be backing down because of Trump’s rejection of American participation. Breitbart reported that, publicly, Merkel is taking a strong stance, but:

Behind the scenes, however, it would appear that Merkel’s negotiating teams have been bending over backwards to tone down the climate action plan and avoid an embarrassing rejection by Donald Trump.

This can be seen by comparing the two draft climate action plans for the summit, one from March and the revised one from May. According to Climate Change News, American negotiators have watered it down considerably.

As for the conference:

Elsewhere, Trump supporters expressed concern for his safety. Click on the images below for more detail. It is true that the Trumps stayed in a guest house of the German senate:

Day 1 of G20 unfolded.

Trump was ready:

He was the only leader who refused to wear the hideous G20 lapel pin and wore his American flag pin instead.

He received questions about the Democrats:

The group photo piqued people’s interest, and not just in the media. Emmanuel Macron weirded out, making a nuisance of himself to stand next to Donald Trump.

Technically, that was the correct place for him to stand. The newest G20 participants are placed at the edges of the photo. More long-serving world leaders are in the centre. However, perhaps Macron should have stayed in the back row. He not only left a gap but disturbed everyone in attempting to get down to the first row:

It did not go unnoticed:

The same thing happened later that day in the group photo before the concert that evening. Watch Merkel position Trump and Macron:

The Macrons sat next to the Trumps at the concert, too:

The Conservative Treehouse said:

*Note* There is a coordinated effort by global political leftists (control entities within multinationals and political constructs) to physically position Emmanuel Macron next to President Trump at every opportunity. This is a structurally coordinated effort to enlarge the presence of Macron as an oppositional entity to the looming and dominant presence (figurative and literal) of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump had a successful day.

He and Russian president Vladimir Putin put a ceasefire in Syria in place:

Trade Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said:

We had a very productive dinner last night — Secretary Tillerson, myself, General McMaster — with President Moon Jae-in and Prime Minister Abe and their teams, discussing the importance of what’s going on in North Korea and the issues there. And then today we’ve had, already, several other bilats, and tomorrow we have another six.

The President also participated in a very important session today on trade and an important session on the environment and the economy. So I would just generally say we’ve had very productive economic meetings. There’s been very substantive issues discussed. The North Korea issue has been discussed very significantly, about the escalation in North Korea.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, in part (same link, emphases mine):

President Trump and President Putin met this afternoon for 2 hours and 15 minutes here on the sidelines of the G20. The two leaders exchanged views on the current nature of the U.S.-Russia relationship and the future of the U.S.-Russia relationship.

They discussed important progress that was made in Syria, and I think all of you have seen some of the news that just broke regarding a de-escalation agreement and memorandum, which was agreed between the United States, Russia and Jordan, for an important area in southwest Syria that affects Jordan’s security, but also is a very complicated part of the Syrian battlefield.

This de-escalation area was agreed, it’s well-defined, agreements on who will secure this area. A ceasefire has been entered into. And I think this is our first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria. And as a result of that, we had a very lengthy discussion regarding other areas in Syria that we can continue to work together on to de-escalate the areas and violence once we defeat ISIS, and to work together toward a political process that will secure the future of the Syrian people.

As a result, at the request of President Putin, the United States has appointed — and you’ve seen, I think, the announcement of Special Representative for Ukraine, Ambassador Kurt Volker. Ambassador Volker will draw on his decades of experience in the U.S. Diplomatic Corps, both as a representative to NATO and also his time as a permanent political appointment.

The two leaders also acknowledged the challenges of cyber threats and interference in the democratic processes of the United States and other countries, and agreed to explore creating a framework around which the two countries can work together to better understand how to deal with these cyber threats, both in terms of how these tools are used to in interfere with the internal affairs of countries, but also how these tools are used to threaten infrastructure, how these tools are used from a terrorism standpoint as well.

Trump also held a meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico:

President Trump emphasized the strong bilateral relationship that the United States enjoys with Mexico and noted the importance of renegotiating NAFTA to help workers in both countries. President Trump thanked President Peña Nieto for Mexico’s partnership on the Central America Conference last month. The leaders also discussed regional challenges, including drug trafficking, illegal migration, and the crisis in Venezuela.

After the day’s business concluded, the leaders and their spouses attended the aforementioned concert — then had dinner.

Mrs Trump was seated next to Mr Putin:

The Daily Mail has loads of photos and more on both the concert and the dinner.

Then it was time for some rest:

Trump was happy:

Tomorrow’s post discusses Day 2.


You really couldn’t make up what’s been happening in Trump’s Twitter world.

Let typos stand

On Tuesday, May 30, 2017 President Trump tweeted:

Despite the constant negative press covfefe

He meant ‘coverage’, but it wasn’t long before someone started #covfefe. The Hill has more on the hashtag, which was the top Twitter trend that night.

Six hours later, Trump followed up:

Alternative media’s Jack Posobiec pointed out:

Until then, the major preoccupation besides Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was the danger of the president giving out his mobile phone number to world leaders:

From the AP article we discover that Emmanuel Macron gave Trump his mobile number in return and that Justin Trudeau rang Trump on his mobile.

Obama never went anywhere without his mobile. No one ever questioned who had his mobile phone number. His phone was never hacked, although Angela Merkel’s was.

Now that Trump is trying to make friends with the Europeans by inviting them to call him at any time, his mobile phone is suddenly a major ‘security issue’.

Trump Twitter troll suspended

For several months, President Trump had a Twitter troll who was often the first to respond to his tweets, not once, not twice but many times in succession.

Not only were the trolling tweets annoying to read, they prevented Trump supporters’ responses from being at the top.

It was unclear whether the person responsible was able to make his Twitter account into a sort of bot that would automatically respond to Trump’s tweets.

Then, on May 29, news emerged from AnimeRight that the troll’s Twitter account had been suspended.

AnimeRight reported that the account holder allegedly worked for David Brock’s team at Media Matters. His account was hacked and his phone number posted on Twitter from his own account. The offending tweet was likely to have been a hack job, not from the account owner himself. Afterwards, the account was suspended.

Heat Street has more on the account holder who was:

a rising young star entrepeneur in Silicon Valley. He got a hundred thousand dollars from Trump savant Peter Th[ie]l to drop out of college and start a business which he apparently squandered on a failed anti-bullying Instagram clone.

Anti-bullying. Oh, the irony. I hope Thiel regrets that loan.

Strangely, the former troll’s:

main revenue generator is a tacky liberal t-shirt shop, selling clothes that say “Keep Calm and Impeach Trump.”

Then, for whatever reason, he had a go at 4chan, a site with a diverse group of forum posters who are also gamers and computer geniuses. The article rightly points out that the troll:

broke one of the internet’s earliest and most basic rule, don’t [mess] with 4chan. He wrote some kind of haiku of a tweet saying he owned 4chan. Within a few days, LeGate’s account was hacked — tweeting out his personal phone number — then completely deleted off the internet.

The troll also became a target of Photoshopping and rumours.

Now, thankfully, he is silent.

This hashtag, which has more on the story, was every bit as popular as #covfefe. Amazingly, the two trended concurrently.

Militant social media

For years the Democrats and their fellow left-wing travellers have conducted attacks on well-meaning conservatives.

Now the tide is turning. Driving the aforementioned troll off Twitter is but one recent and powerful example of what 4chan readers and contributors have done.

Someone on The_Donald wrote that the tide has now turned in favour of Trump supporters. It should be noted that many of them were also left-wing at an earlier point in their lives, so they understand how this game works (emphases mine):

If you understand politics and the crafty takeover of the media, Hollywood, academia, and social media platforms by the left to use Saul Alinsky style tactics to attack people and ideas on the right, you should be in awe of what 4 Chan is doing. As funny as #NippleLeGate is, it’s actually incredible and inspiring looking at how quickly they took him down. The same can be said for Shia LaBeouf, Bike Lock Professor, and on and on and on.

Not to drudge up history, but the left has done this to any person on the right that they find a threat. And they are very successful at it. Now we have their “Rules for Radicals” playbook and we’re giving it back. As Trump would say, were hitting back 10X harder.

We’re going to be the community that breaks the Seth Rich story, I can feel it. During the midterms and 2020, I guarantee you that it’s going to be 4 Chan and The_Donald that finds and weaponizes the dirt on the Dems. We’re going to be the difference.

I’m here to serve in this company of heroes until we force every leftist faculty member of academia to retire, until we bring to light the corruption and sickly pedophilia of every member of congress Republican or Democrat, until we rightfully take down every MSM organization and make them report actual news again. Until every radical Islamic organization is wiped from the face of the earth whether be from bombs or the embarrassment we’ll lob on the “losers”.

I’ll be right here fighting the entire way, because you bet … the left is trying to do the same to us and even worse.

The 2016 election was really just the beginning. The left hasn’t seen what we’re capable of yet. And when they do, we’ll take them down so fast they won’t know what hit them. The revolution is afoot and we’re at the front lines. Let’s go!!

The energy, the skill and the determination that young Trump supporters have is splendid to see in action.

Are we tired of winning? Never. Bring it on. MAGA!
