The purge has begun.

Donald Trump is firing anyone refusing to fulfill his sadistic agenda.

It started with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's resignation over her refusal to close ports of entry along our Southern border.

Trump is so intent on his anti-immigrant objective, he withdrew his Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director nominee, Ronald D. Vitiello, because of a desire for the agency to move in a "tougher" direction.

Then Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles was out, and although the White House denies it, Alles' dismissal comes right on the heels of a disagreement Trump supposedly had with a Secret Service memo admitting the agency charged with protecting the president and his family is unable to sufficiently prevent who is admitted to Trump's Florida country club Mar-a-Lago. This comes after a Chinese spy entered with a signal detector to uncover hidden cameras, four cell phones, nine USB drives, five SIM cards, credit cards, a malware-infected thumb drive, a laptop, and an external hard drive.

The Secret Service has spoken out about the difficulty in doing its jobs when so many dues-paying Mar-a-Lago members swarm in, out, and around the Florida resort.

Of course, Trump had to Mock Alles before firing him, calling the former Marine Major General "Dumbo."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is calling for Alles to testify before Congress "as soon as possible about the potential security vulnerabilities at Mar-a-Lago"and other counterintelligence and national security threats."

Next to go might by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick.

The White House is apparently targeting others for removal.

This is causing some obvious alarm.

One anonymous senior administration official said:

"There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency."

Malcolm Nance, retired Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Agency (NSA) agent, counter-intelligence expert, and author of the books The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election and The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West, tweeted:

"WARNING: Trump is now removing anyone loyal to this nation's laws. We are officially in a Dictatorship. @SpeakerPelosi & Democrats need to start attacking this admin loudly, publicly or we will lose this republic. STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION! DO YOUR DUTY! #NoKings"

Meanwhile, here's the real story:

outube.com/watch?v=J6lDHgVpJ6s

Everything you need to know. The facts are indisputable: the Obama administration, the DNC, the Hillary Clinton campaign and the mainstream media all have committed treason.

Time for rabid anti-Trumpers to cultivate a viable third-party candidate for 2020. There's still time--18 months until the election.

The Democratic Party is finished. Bank on it.

I'm tempted to ask, "Which bank?" But more seriously, what is your take on Tulsi? Most interested.

Really, I'm not sure which is worse - the Russiagaters or the Q believers. Perhaps they are equal; two sides of the same coin.

Whatever.

Q team is military intelligence embedded in the NSA. Scores of proofs disseminated over the last 18 months illustrate this unequivocally. The NSA has everything. Everything.

Guess you had to be there.

Seriously, how long do you plan to remain oblivious? It's embarrassing. Watch the video. Or read the letter. It's all there--and in many other places.

Well, here's a claim the Letter you provide is a Hoax.

I'm not taking sides between Q and Russiagate since I believe both to be ridiculous.

I did watch the video. I think Sy Hersch reported that the leak came from Seth. Bill Binney, formerly of the NSA, insists it could not have been a hack and there are a number of VIPS members who support him and others who claim he's nuts.

I would not be upset if the Democrats did tank, but I believe most of the stuff from Q is hyperbolic Alex Jones like stuff. I surely don't believe in Russiagate.

It isn't clear to me that Trump isn't participating in a "slow-motion coup" probably in cooperation with senior membership of the Democratic Party. :-)

So we can make even wilder and wilder claims because whatever you claim, there will be "evidence" to back it up.

In the end, voting for the Establishment; Republicans or Democrats; is not going to ease this horror show.

Yeah, I've seen that alleged debunking of the memo. First, I do not consider Above Top Secret to be an unimpeachable source on anything. I have read articles there in the past that were as cockamamie as they come.

Second, it seems to me that criminals who know they are committing hardcore criminal acts-- engaging in highly illegal surveillance on the President of the United States of America, for instance--will take pains, however small, to obfuscate their moves. The memo, you may have noticed, also fails to mention Obama by name. It also doesn't mention that "Michael Steele" is a CIA asset--if, in fact, "Michael Steele" refers to "Christopher Steele," which I believe it does.

The guy's a spook--a double agent. Who's to say "Christopher Steele" is even his real name?

A whole lotta shillin' going on. Irrespective of that, nothing detracts from the truth that Obama, HRC, the DNC and high-level intelligence personnel committed treasonous acts inre: the 2016 election, and beyond. And that the mainstream media is deliberately complicit in twisting and omitting the details of those treasonous acts insofar as it concerns their obligation to keep the American people sufficiently informed on such matters.

The entire corporate mainstream media has been co-opted by the CIA. You know that, right? Yeah, they strive to impose totalitarian globalism on the world at large. No joke.

As I have stated previously, I couldn't care less who exposes and brings down the globalist cabal, just as long as someone does. As for Q, enjoy your skepticism while you can, I'm afraid you won't have that luxury much longer.

Peace.

I debated whether to reply to your post, as I'm not sure it is of much benefit. In any event, I'm going to...

As to your letter - First, I saw that at least two years ago. Second, we have no proof that it is even real, although I think it probably is. My opinion of it's veracity is based on various documents revealed since 2015, the existence of which can be proven through various court proceedings and/or legislative investigations.

I mentioned that I believe the Russiagaters and the Q believers are the two sides of the same coin. I will go further and state that both positions are very much religions. Both are based on belief, not provable facts. Both are faith-based, and so have little difference between them; no better than Mormons or Baptists. If you want to believe a religion, fine. Go ahead.

By faith-based, here is are examples:

You stated: "Q team is military intelligence embedded in the NSA." You have no evidence of this whatsoever. None. It is your belief.

You stated: "Scores of proofs disseminated over the last 18 months illustrate this unequivocally." No, it's not unequivocal. It's not even close. I have seen the timelines with the Q posts which supposedly "prove" the veracity, but closer examination shows that there is almost always a time lag. However, if one wants to believe, one will ignore these discrepancies. Any religionist does the same.

You stated: "The NSA has everything. Everything." I can hardly believe you wrote that. Seriously? Which leads to........

You wrote: "Guess you had to be there." Into fallacies much, Pablo?

I stand by what I said originally - The Russiagate believers and the Q believers are two sides of the same coin. Both serve to cause diversion and distraction. Working together, these serve to keep (those who could be) "troublemakers" off the streets. The whole thing is working rather well, unfortunately.

You wrote, 'I have seen the timelines with the Q posts which supposedly "prove" the veracity, but closer examination shows that there is almost always a time lag.'

The operative phrase here is 'almost always.' So, then, how do you explain the times when there isn't a time lag? Coincidence?

I sincerely doubt that. Not sure when you last looked, but I suggest you stop attempting to gaslight me and check again. Since you've already been there, you know your way, I guess. Right? Incidentally, just because you don't want something to be true, doesn't mean it isn't.

I stand by what I said originally, too: "unequivocally."

Interesting prognosis, but it makes me think further about all of the prior folks who have QUIT (rather than be fired), which creates a different context and continuum for these latest developments.


"Purge" is such a scary word, so reminiscent of Stalin et. al.

Also, remember Donald loved to say on his program, YOU'RE FIRED!

The statistics are astonishing and unprecedented in history.
