And so it continues.

This impeachment fiasco is merely the latest in a never-ending series of distractions, distortions, and political theater aimed at diverting the public's attention from the sinister advances of the American Police State.

Don't allow yourselves to be distracted, diverted or mesmerized by the cheap theater tricks.

This impeachment spectacle is Shakespearean in its scope: full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Nothing is the key word here.

Despite the wall-to-wall media coverage, nothing will change.

Mark my words: the government will remain as corrupt and self-serving as ever, dominated by two political factions that pretend to be at odds with each other all the while moving in lockstep to maintain the status quo.

So President Trump's legal team can grandstand all they want about the impeachment trial being "an affront to the Constitution" and "a dangerous perversion of the Constitution," but that's just smoke and mirrors.

You know what is really "an affront to the Constitution"? The U.S. government.

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

The republic has fallen.

The Deep State's plot to take over America has succeeded.

The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic, corporate oligarchy bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.

Even now, we are being pushed and prodded towards a civil war, not because the American people are so divided but because that's how corrupt governments control a populace (i.e., divide and conquer).

These are dangerous times.

These are indeed dangerous times but not because of violent crime, which remains at an all-time low, or because of terrorism, which is statistically rare, or because the borders are being invaded by foreign armies, which data reports from the Department of Homeland Security refute.

I wish I could refute these chilling assessments. I cannot.

If anyone can, please provide evidence, because I think the evidence is with the author. The war on journalism and whistle blowers is one example I can think of. The media never talks about and it is moving us rapidly towards a police state.

I agree with this as far as it goes, but our troubles began the moment Europeans landed here and thought it their right to commit genocide against the natives. This attitude has never changed as far as our rulers go. I am reading a book I would highly recommend. "American Exceptionalism and American Innocence" A People's History of Fake News FromThe Revolutionary War To War On Terror by Roberto Sirvent and Danny Haiphong. We need to confront this county's entire history if we are to wrest control of this muderous empire before it destroys life on Earth.t

Yes, Lois, thank you for pointing this out.


The most important thing we can do is look deeply into our history, ancient history, world history. And not elementary school book history.

We will discover that our government in the "District of Columbia" actually started out as a death worship cult in Rome, built from the last dregs of a vanquished Egyptian civilization.


We will find out that the men who framed the Constitution were elitists who had no interest in empowering the rabble, but were working for King George. The words "We the People" refer to them, not us.


We will know that the King James Bible is actually a play book for the Elites, compiled by Francis Bacon at the behest of King James, who, though he was thoroughly insane, remains the curator of the entire litany of the Judeo Christian religions.


And this is just the 3 molecules at the very tip of this iceberg.
