FBI, DOJ failed to observe ‘fidelity to the law’ in Trump-Russia investigation: Durham

The FBI investigation of former President Donald Trump’s campaign over allegations of collusion with Russia was “seriously flawed” and had no basis in evidence, special counsel John Durham has found.

VETERANS: Sorry but vets should come before illegals


NY Hotels Boot Homeless Veterans to Shelter Released Migrants
Bob Price  — 13 May 2023

*** begin quote ***Upstate New York hotels began kicking homeless veterans from their properties to make room for migrants being bused to the region from New York City. The homeless veterans, many Vietnam-era veterans, were receiving temporary shelter in the hotels through the efforts of a nonprofit agency.

The New York Post reports that nearly two dozen homeless veterans “have been booted from the upstate hotels to make room for migrants.” One of the hotels told a 24-year-old Afghanistan war veteran their temporary housing was being pulled out from under them and they would have to move somewhere else.

Sharon Toney-Finch, CEO of the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation, told the New York Post, “Our veterans have been placed in another hotel due to what’s going on with the immigrants.”

Toney-Finch said they moved the veterans from the Crossroads Hotel in Newburgh, New York, to other nearby motels and hotels. The properties were located about 20 minutes from where they were displaced.

Orange County, New York, is now the target of a migrant busing campaign by New York City Mayor Eric Adams. The mayor is moving the migrants out of his sanctuary city to Upstate New York to relieve migrant overcrowding in his city.

Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” Brought to Life in a Spanish Flashmob of 100 Musicians

  • A touchingly human reminder of our capacity for ecstasy and transcendence.

By Maria Popova

*** begin quote ***

Imagine what life would be like if lived, in May Sarton’s lovely phrase, with “joy instead of will.” That is what Beethoven imagined, and invited humanity to imagine, two centuries ago in the choral finale of his ninth and final symphony, known as “Ode to Joy” — an epochal hymn of the possible, half a lifetime in the making.

In the spring of 2012, the Spanish city of Sabadell set out to celebrate the 130th anniversary of its founding with a most unusual, electrifying, and touchingly human rendition of Beethoven’s masterpiece, performed by a flashmob of 100 musicians from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs. Watching the townspeople — children with kites, elders with walkers, couples holding hands — gather to savor the unbidden music in a succession of confusion, delight, and ecstasy is the stuff of goosebumps: living proof that “music so readily transports us from the present to the past, or from what is actual to what is possible.”

*** end quote ***

Sappy, but I love the children really getting into the swing of it.

Hard not to be moved by it.  Something gets stirred in the soul.

What could be if we all just tried harder … … “Peace on Earth” to men of good will.

GOLD: End the FED, FDIC, FLIC, Freddie,


The Big Government-Big Bank Plot To Exploit Us
By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
May 8, 2023

*** begin quote ***

Putting an end to inflation requires not only the abolition of the Fed but also the abolition of the FDIC and FSLIC. At long last, banks would be treated like any firm in any other industry. In short, if they can’t meet their contractual obligations they will be required to go under and liquidate. It would be instructive to see how many banks would survive if the massive governmental props were finally taken away.”

We must do everything we can to end our corrupt monetary system, which threatens to bring down our economy through runaway inflation and bank insolvency. We need to restore the gold standard and end the Fed.

MONEY: Is the E-Krona money or, like the CCP, a method of social control by Sweden?


With The E-Krona, Sweden Is Attacking The Virtues Bitcoin Is Built To Protect

  • As they increase financial surveillance and control, Swedish authorities are inadvertently making the case for Bitcoin as an alternative.

Peter Bistoletti  —     May 11, 2023

*** begin quote ***

E-krona is, at present, a pilot project, testing the technical platform and the cooperation of banks, companies and end users. The e-krona will preserve several functions of cash but not anonymity. The volume of e-krona created will not be determined by mining (like it is for Bitcoin), but by the central bank. Positive or negative interest rates will also be determined by the central bank. In a deeper sense, the e-krona without a function like Bitcoin mining is merely a central database controlled by the central bank.

FBI refuses to give Congress informant file alleging Biden took bribes as vice president

WASHINGTON — The FBI has refused to give Congress an informant file alleging that President Biden took bribes while he was vice president, The Post has learned — setting up a possible showdown over access to the information.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued a legally binding subpoena last week requiring the FBI to turn over the file by noon Wednesday, but the bureau instead replied with a six-page letter raising various objections.

“Information from confidential human sources is unverified and, by definition, incomplete,” wrote FBI acting assistant director for congressional affairs Christopher Dunham, who also argued that informant reports must also be kept private to protect sources.

Congress should IMMEDIATELY defund the FBI!

GUNS: Criminals don’t seem to be well trained and that’s a good thing

Chilling photos show three would-be assassins board a Maryland school bus to try to shoot a 14-year-old boy dead in what appears to have been a targeted attack. 

The unidentified youngsters burst onto the bus in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Monday afternoon when their intended victim was the last student on board.

They tried shooting the middle-schooler – who has not been named – in the chest at point-blank range with the boy’s life only saved after the gun malfunctioned.

Drew Hassenbein and Ethan Falkowitz died near Jericho late Wednesday night after Amandeep Singh, 34, crashed his Dodge Ram into them, the New York Post reported.

They were pronounced dead at the scene, while two other boys, aged 16 and 17, who were in the car suffered internal injuries. They were in a stable condition in hospital.

Nope, Bernie is perfectly comfortable with the policies being followed by President Biden’s handlers. Presumably, in exchange for not rocking the boat as he did in 2020, forcing the party’s controllers to pick an already senescent Joe Biden just because he was easy to control with all these bribes that could be exposed when needed (cough!

And they will wear out many batteries and mice before this is finished.

A recent report says that hackers have been breaking into email addresses provided by AT&T and stealing huge amounts of cryptocurrency.

According to a report from Tech Crunch, unknown hackers have been hacking email addresses provided by AT&T to steal cryptocurrency from users. The report says that the attacks started at the beginning of April by a gang of cybercriminals. They found a way to hack into email addresses and steal people’s money on crypto.

The hackers have gained access to a section of AT&T’s internal network, allowing them to generate mail keys for any user. Mail keys are used by AT&T users to log into their accounts with third-party apps like Outlook without using their passwords. In other words, they are a kind of “secure measure” that allows log-ins from third-party apps.

BITCOIN: Bulgaria’s Golden Ticket = Seized Bitcoin


A Seized Bitcoin Stack Could Be Bulgaria’s Golden Ticket

  • After seizing 213,000 bitcoin in 2017, Bulgaria now has an opportunity to become one of the wealthiest countries on earth.

Ahmed Botan  —  Apr 24, 2023

*** begin quote ***

The reason for this is its possession of 213,000 bitcoin, which its authorities seized from a group they labeled as criminals in 2017. According to the South East European Law Enforcement Center (SELC), the group hacked the Bulgarian customs agency’s computers and made changes to the system so that their partner companies could import goods while avoiding paying taxes on them.

Immediately following the crackdown, the bitcoin seized was worth about $500,000, however, it would now be worth closer to $6 billion dollars, as of April 2023. While the details around the BTC seizure are unclear, and it is not totally clear whether the country still holds that bitcoin or what it plans to do with the stack if it does, the potential of a nation like Bulgaria holding this much BTC is worth exploring.
