Conspiracy Part 1 and 2:: By Bill Wilson

Trump and the Conspiracy Part 1

The giants in the spook business are both attacking one another and upholding one another in their dodge-and confuse-efforts to protect the institutions they once served.

According to The Hill and television appearances, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper thinks that former CIA Director John Brennan’s rhetoric against President Trump is an issue in of itself. Clapper, whose boss was the immediate ex-president, was involved in a massive spying effort against the American people, and was in charge when the ex-president used the FISA court to spy on Trump. Trump removed Brennan’s security clearance last week because of his behavior after leaving the CIA.

Trump said of Brennan that his “lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos.”

But Brennan whined like a baby thinking he can tell the New York Times that the president conspired with the Russians and a lot of other things that he best should keep to himself given his former position, and still keep his security clearance. Clapper backhandedly came to Brennan’s defense saying that “the common denominator among all of us [in the intelligence community] that have been speaking up … is genuine concern about the jeopardy and threats to our institutions.”

His remarks were backed up by an entire group of 60 former intelligence officials in a release to CNN. “All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure,” the group wrote in a letter obtained by CNN. “But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so.”

So they want to protect their agencies by telling the public what they think the public needs to know about their secret little world, and their mouthpiece is CNN. It makes a lot of sense. This is the fulcrum of the entire attack on the current presidency—protecting the turf of secrecy.

These people have been doing horrible, anti-American, anti-Constitutional acts for so long that they will do anything, include conspire with the news media and the Democratic Party to overthrow a president, to protect their deep, dark secrets. They don’t want their security clearances revoked because that allows them to continue their conspiratorial acts long after they officially leave—just an opinion, but just put two and two together.

The Lord tells Ezekiel in Ezekiel 8:8-9, “Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do there.”

It is similar today in the high places of government. We the people must continue digging and exposing these conspirators and usurpers for the abominations they commit.

Conspiracy Part 2

President Trump is now being criticized for his admission that anything he says will be twisted and used against him. In an interview with Reuters, Trump said he is faced with a perjury trap. Reuters reported that “The president expressed fears that investigators could compare his statements with that of others who have testified in the probe, such as former FBI Director James Comey, and that any discrepancies could be used against him.” He said, “So if I say something and he (Comey) says something, and it’s my word against his, and he’s best friends with Mueller, so Mueller might say: ‘Well, I believe Comey,’ and even if I’m telling the truth, that makes me a liar. That’s no good.”

Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was found guilty of eight of 18 charges connected to financial fraud. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges associated with tax evasion, illegal contributions to campaigns, and paying off women with whom Trump had sexual relations. The Mueller Special Counsel levied these charges and “pressured,” which in today’s terms means legally blackmailed, these men into admitting guilt or not even presenting a defense.

None of the charges are remotely related to the Russians conspiring with Trump to influence the US Presidential election. None. But this is the way of the world these days.

America spent eight years of the previous administration selectively enforcing laws; harassing conservative non-profits; doing under the table business deals with Russia; sending Iran billions of dollars in cash that bolstered its nuclear program and expanded its terrorist operations; voting scandals; sending taxpayer dollars to terrorists; and the list goes on and on. Yet, there were no investigations, Special Counsels or convictions.

The only investigation is the current one, spawned from the Clinton Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the previous Administration paying for a false dossier on Trump and using it to get the secret FISA Court to allow the administration to spy on Trump and his campaign.

There is plenty of bad stuff going around in government. We are in a period of great disruption. The information being reported all has a slant of bias to it. All the indictments and guilty findings are not related to the Mueller Russian probe, but they add up to one thing: Everyone doing illegal things is related to Donald Trump in some way. That, in the public’s eye, makes Trump also guilty—even without evidence against him. I do not know if Trump is guilty of illegal business dealings. I know as sure as I’m writing this, Russia did not change the election outcome. But as Romans 16:18 warns, “good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

The coup-makers are using this noise to suit their own passion and to turn people away from the truth to pursue myths. Seek truth and be not deterred by the deceivers and evildoers.

Of Tyranny and Empathy :: By Bill Wilson

Yet another killer who killed others. We have a shooter in Jacksonville, FL., who killed two and wounded others. Already the leftists and socialists are calling for more gun control and disarmament. Interesting, however, that it was a “gun free” zone where the 24-year-old killer shot his victims. In Chicago a week ago, there were 61 shootings over the weekend. This, in a city and a state where gun control is among the toughest in the nation. Over and over again, it is proven that gun control fails miserably at controlling guns.

The guns fall in the hands of criminals who would use them. They are not law-abiding, so how could any sane person expect them to obey gun control laws? This is a people problem, not a gun problem.

A friend read me a brief story the other day about gun control. I don’t know if the facts are right, but the point is well taken. It said that American citizens privately owned over 300 million firearms and more than a trillion rounds of ammunition. The tagline was that if law abiding gun owners were the problem, America would know about it. The vast majority of those who own guns are law abiding and would never want to use them to inflict harm on someone.

According to the real-time data of deaths in America since January 1, 2018 as reported by the Centers for Disease Control—abortion is the leading cause of death at 713,565; Heart Disease is next at 401,441, followed by cancer at 386,642. Murder by guns is 23rd at 7,510—essentially 1% that of abortions. Drunk driving kills three times as many people as do guns.

The gun control crowd’s appeasement is that they respect that the 2nd Amendment guarantees the right of citizens to own guns for hunting and sport shooting. But we know that’s not the left’s true position.

Of the dozens of quotes by Madison, Jefferson, Adams, Lee and more, perhaps Noah Webster said it best in his 1787 “An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution”:

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”

In 1788, Richard Henry Lee wrote, “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike especially when young, how to use them.”

The Founders wanted to guarantee that any standing army would be regulated by citizen armament organized into militia. This was the only way to protect and defend personal liberty.

Even Jesus believed in personal defense. He instructed his disciples to purchase the common weapon of his time—the sword:

“And he that has no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one (Luke 22:36).”

The leftist cries to undermine the right to protect and defend oneself and one’s family against the opponents of liberty—whether they be thieves or governments or both—are rooted in tyranny rather than empathy.
