Trump Presidency Exposed Scope of Deep 
State Corruption and Influence
by sundance
{ } ~Tammy Bruce is filling in for Sean Hannity. Refreshing. Congressman Louie Gohmert discusses the status of the political impeachment effort... and Speaker liar-Pelosi’s refusal to send the articles to the Senate. Ms. Bruce notes the DC reaction to an outsider administration was predictable; President Trump is adverse to their self-interests.
scumbag/liar-Schiff hired former colleague 
of alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella 
the day after Trump-Ukraine call
by Kerry Picket
{ } ~House Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff hired a former National Security Council aide who worked with alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella... at the NSC during the scumbag/liar-nObama and Trump administrations the day after the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It was previously reported by the Washington Examiner that public records indicated Sean Misko, 37, started work on scumbag/liar-Schiff’s committee in August as a professional staff member. A specific start date was not available until this week when the latest congressional quarterly disbursements were released. The new records show that Misko’s official hire date was July 26. Misko was the director for the Gulf States at the NSC between 2015 until the first half of 2018. The Washington Examiner has established that the whistleblower is a CIA officer who was on the NSC during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration and worked on Ukrainian issues with loose lips liar-Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic candidate, when he was vice president. Ciaramella, 33, is a career CIA analyst and was the Ukraine director on the NSC from 2016 until the summer of 2017. In October 2016, he was loose lips liar-Biden's guest at a State Department banquet. Before joining the NSC, Misko worked in the scumbag/liar-nObama administration at the State Department for deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, who went on to become scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton's senior foreign policy adviser during her 2016 presidential campaign. Both Ciaramella and Misko started their tenures during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration and left during the first year of the Trump administration...
Judicial Watch Sues scumbag/liar-Adam 
Schiff for Phone Snooping Records
{ } ~ Judicial Watch has sued the House Intelligence Committee and its chairman, scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff (D-CA), on Friday for records relating to scumbag/liar-Schiff’s phone snooping... on his Republican counterpart, a journalist, and the president’s lawyer. scumbag/liar-Schiff included phone logs purporting to document communications between Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA), journalist John Solomon, and presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, among others, attempting to implicate them in a plot to smear the reputation of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, whom President Donald Trump had constitutional authority to fire for any reason, regardless. The phone records led to the publication of the private phone records of Giuliani, Congressman Devon Nunes, journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing, and other American citizens. Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit under the public’s common-law right of public access to examine government records after it received no response to a December 6, 2019, records request (Judicial Watch v scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff and U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (No. 1:19-cv-03790)): All subpoenas issued by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on or about September 30, 2019 to any telecommunications provider including, but not limited to AT&T, Inc., for records of telephone calls of any individuals; All responses received to the above-referenced subpoenas. Judicial Watch accused scumbag/liar-Schiff of abusing his power. scumbag/liar-Schiff allegedly used a subpoena to AT&T for the records of several unidentified phone numbers in an apparent attempt to conceal the fact that he was trying to reconstruct the phone conversations of his intended targets, which he then published in the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report. scumbag/liar-Schiff did not cite any legal authority for his actions, which arguably violated the First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution. Nunes has said that scumbag/liar-Schiff violated his civil liberties, and that he will pursue all legal options; the White House responded by noting that one of the phone numbers in the report was incorrect.   
Health Care and Dollar Efficiency
By Deane Waldman
{ } ~ As U.S. healthcare slides toward collapse, Americans are looking in the wrong direction for a cure. They are trying to cut costs and save money in order to make healthcare affordable. No one is focusing what really matters: dollar efficiency... To avoid miscommunication, terms should be clearly defined. Healthcare, one word, refers to a complex system that cost Americans $3.65 trillion in 2018 (19.4 percent of U.S. GDP). That amount is 130 percent of Great Britain’s GDP. Health care as two words includes the services or work product of health professionals as well as the goods and devices involved in diagnosis and treatment. Health care is a legally protected fiduciary relationship between a patient and a care provider.  Cost in healthcare is often expressed in confusing, incomplete, and inaccurate ways. When I asked a hospital CFO how much it cost to do a cardiac catherization, he accessed his computer and told me a number in thousands of dollars. When I asked how he knew this, he answered, “Simple. We divided the number of catheterizations you did by the budget allocation for the catherization lab.” There was no aggregation of costs such as labor hours, disposables, durable goods and devices, amortization schedules, and overhead. True or accounting cost is the sum of all sellers’ expenditures necessary to bring products or services to market. Costs in healthcare are not accounted that way. They are allocated or calculated. Out-of-pocket cost is the consumer’s personal expenditure. Dollar efficiency refers to the percentage of dollars that go into a system or organization that contributes to desired outputs or outcomes. In healthcare, efficiently spent dollars are those that produce what patients (consumers) need: care. Having insurance might be a necessary process step, but only if it leads to the desired outcome: care. Similarly, saving money is a desirable phase of the process but not an outcome. No one wants to save money if such saving leads to unfavorable medical outcomes, such as the death-by-queueing experienced by those with government-supplied Medicaid and TriCare insurance...  
Win/Win – Speculation of Mike Pompeo 
Running for Kansas Senate Seat
by sundance
{ } ~ Several news articles are speculating that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo might run for the U.S. Senate Seat from Kansas... If accurate, that move would seem to solve a few personnel issues in a rather diplomatic way. Since the Sept./Oct. impeachment operation started there has been a considerable shift notable in the relationship between President Trump and Secretary Pompeo; especially after officials from within the Dept. of State came out strong against President Trump after CIA whistle-blower Eric Ciaramella lit the fuse…. and Pompeo was, well, essentially mute. Getting rid of Pompeo for a Senate bid would be a win/win. Absent the dangerous Siren voice from Nikki Haley spit-spit-spit moving Treasury Sec. Mnuchin or similar to State would be a good transition. Mnuchin already knows the players and has contacts therein etc. A Senate Foreign Relations Committee confirmation should be seamless, well, sans the predictable rino-Mitt Romney grandstanding. Spitballing CTH could see moving Mick Mulvaney (or similar) to Treasury Senate Finance Confirmation and then put Mark Meadows in as chief-of-staff and/or Robert O’Brien with Meadows becoming Nat Sec Advisor. Or something similar...
Libya's Political Instability 
Makes Room for ISIS to Regroup
by Ahmed Charai
{ } ~ Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan opened the way on December 26 for direct military intervention in Libya: he announced a parliamentary vote in early January on sending troops to support the UN-backed Tripoli government against General Khalifa Haftar... Instructors, equipment and Turkish special forces are already operating in Libya alongside pro-government militias. Erdogan said that Turkey would also be willing to send aerial and naval assistance if circumstances require it. Sending Turkish troops will complicate the situation in an already fragile country, torn by internal dissent since the ouster and killing of the dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The map of foreign intervention in Libya is important: In the east of the country, forces from Saudi Arabia and Egypt support Gen. Haftar, the separatist who heads the Libyan National Army -- not the country's national army. Arrayed against them are Turkey and Qatar, supporting the recognized government headed by Fayez al-Sarraj, but his government is not supported by the legislature. Then there is Russia. It has dispatched militia forces known as the Wagner Group, which have already carried out operations in Syria, are also operating in several African countries -- supporting and assisting Haftar's forces. France has joined the group of countries that support the rebel general, while Italy backs Sarraj's recognized government. As it has done in Syria, the United States has so far refrained from any intervention. Instead, the US has clung to the position of an outside observer, ready to offer advice and diplomatic assistance to resolve the Libyan crisis. Turkey, which signed a military and economic accord with the Libyan government in November, could deprive Greece and the Greek Cypriots of large swaths of their oil and gas exploration areas and force Egypt and Israel to negotiate with Turkey over the construction of natural gas pipelines to Europe. Libya is now one of the main axes of future ISIS operations, to compensate for the loss of ground in Syria. ISIS in Libya finances its activities through robbery, kidnapping for ransom, extorting Libyan citizens and cross-border smuggling of artifacts and other commodities... 
The Demos' Socialist Cloward-Piven Pivot
Mark Alexander:  Since broadcasting our first email digest more than 20 years ago, our Patriot Post editorial team has reviewed, daily, the full spectrum of political advocacy and rhetoric. After all, the best way to understand the strategies and tactics used by the adversaries of Liberty and Rule of Law is to go straight to the source. And so, every day, my inbox is filled with a wide range of email — from the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) on the Left to the John Birch Society on the Right.

Reviewing everything the Left spews is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it!

Over the last decade, the political and policy positions of the CPUSA and those of the Socialist Democrat Party leadership increasingly constitute a distinction without much difference — Democrats are just more tactful than communists (sometimes). It’s no small irony that we observed “The Communist Centennial of Tyranny and Terror” during the same year that, thank goodness, Donald Trump defeated scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton.

Ahead of 2020, the cadres of assorted statists who make up the Democrats’ presidential primary plethora hope to defeat Trump with their collective constituencies strategy. Their socialist pacesetter is commie-Bernie Sanders, who was sandbagged by the Democrats in the 2016 primary, and his loudmouthed gaggle of socialist sycophants includes four congresswomen — commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, worthless-Ilhan Omar, worthless-Rashida Tlaib, and worthless-Ayanna Pressley, collectively labeled “The Squad,” but more accurately, “The Gang of Four.”

Indicative of the backroom alliance between Tom Perez’s Democrat National Committee (DNC) and John Bachtell’s CPUSA was a recent email I received. No, it didn’t announce the merger of the two organizations, but it did do something much more subtle.

In order to track incoming email from various sources, I use more than 30 email address variants. But three weeks ago, I started receiving duplicate emails from the DNC — and I noted that those duplicates were using the specific address I use for incoming email from CPUSA. Not that I was surprised, but how revealing. For the record, when one organization integrates the email list of another, without the knowledge or permission of those being merged, it violates a lot of email double-opt-in protocols. When this happens, the email from the sender will typically be marked “spam” and this will hinder delivery of the sender’s email — in this case, that of the DNC. Not a problem! (For the record, Patriot Post subscribers have to double-opt-in to receive our publications, and we do not share or sell that information to any third party, which is why our email lists are “spam free” and our delivery rates are very high.)

So, what objectives and strategies do the Democrat Party and CPUSA have in common? Well, how much time do you have?

Most notably, both are advocates of the Cloward-Piven Strategy, which is the ‘60s-era brainchild of two hard-left academics to “end poverty” by creating an economic crisis that would lead to the collapse of capitalism resulting in its replacement with socialism.

As one of our political analysts, Arnold Ahlert, wrote: “In 1966, Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven formulated the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It was a plan to overthrow America’s capitalist system by overloading the welfare state bureaucracy with demands that were impossible to meet, thereby precipitating a revolution.” Ahlert noted that the latest “effort to 'crash the system’” is to overload it with illegal immigrants.

This explains the Demos’ 2020 platform: “Open Borders and Free Stuff.” Indeed, the party that was once the champion of blue-collar workers now supports the greatest threat to labor, wage growth, and the economy overall: the influx of millions of illegal aliens competing for jobs, willing to take lower wages, and soaking up enormous taxpayer resources in terms of medical care, welfare, housing, and education.

According to Cloward and Piven, to achieve their goal, it would necessitate “a massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls,” followed by “a federal program of income redistribution … necessary to elevate the poor en masse from poverty.” That income redistribution would take the form of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Except the only thing that’s equal under socialism is poverty — except, of course, for the political class.

Cloward and Piven insisted: “Republicans are always ready to declaim the evils of public welfare, and they would probably be the first to raise a hue and cry. But deeper and politically more telling conflicts would take place within the Democratic coalition. … Whites — both working class ethnic groups and many in the middle class — would be aroused against the ghetto poor, while liberal groups, which until recently have been comforted by the notion that the poor are few … would probably support the movement. Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”

Their strategy is similar (albeit more radical) to the failed model Franklin Delano Roosevelt called “The New Deal.” FDR infamously proclaimed, “Here is my principle: Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay. That is the only American principle.” Of course, that “American principle” is merely a paraphrase from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, in which he declared, “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

FDR’s failed programs were reincarnated as the Democrats’ so-called “Great Society,” which, in effect, enslaved millions of poor Americans on urban poverty plantations and coincided with the first publication of the Cloward-Piven Strategy.

Today, 50 years after the Left’s so-called “War on Poverty,” many Americans are now “institutionally impoverished,” unprepared and unwilling to rise above the poverty line because they’ve been generationally disabled from doing so.

As Cloward and Piven noted: “As the crisis develops, it will be important to use the mass media to inform the broader liberal community about the inefficiencies and injustices of welfare.” The Demo/MSM propaganda machine is just waiting for the signal from its leftist puppeteers! The organizing arm this plan utilizes Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” model for “community organizers.”

The Democrats almost achieved critical economic overload in 2008, when their statist “economic equality” policies resulted in the near-collapse of our economy. I detailed this in “How Democrats Seeded the 2008 Financial Crisis.” That was a near miss, but they did get an ideological socialist as a consolation prize: eight years of Barack scumbag/liar-nObama as president of the United States.

As I wrote eight months ago, Democrats are desperately hoping for a recession before the 2020 election. And they’re ready to pounce on the next opening to overload the system and create a crisis, adhering to the advice of scumbag/liar-nObama’s former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Fellow Patriots, stand ready and keep your powder dry!
