Is there a plan to take Trump out?

Is there a plan to take Trump out?

A top official within the National Security Council was quietly fired last month for penning a memo warning of a deep state plan to undermine the Trump administration and its nationalist agenda because “globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed.”

The story broke in The Atlantic, which reported:

Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning, was let go on July 21. Higgins’s memo describes supposed domestic and international threats to Trump’s presidency, including globalists, bankers, the “deep state,” and Islamists. The memo characterizes the Russia story as a plot to sabotage Trump’s nationalist agenda. It asserts that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America. The memo also includes a set of recommendations, arguing that the problem constitutes a national-security priority.

“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” the memo warns. It argues that this has led “Islamists [to] ally with cultural Marxists,” but that in the long run, “Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety.”

Higgins wrote the memo in late May, and at some point afterwards it began circulating among people outside the White House associated with the Trump campaign to whom Higgins had given it.

The mainstream media immediately picked up on the report, calling Higgins’ comments and recommendations “bizarre” and “conspiratorial.”

But he isn’t the only guy thinking there’s something happening that the broader public doesn’t know about.

Last month, Sean Spicer noted that government holdovers from the Obama administration made up part of what could be referred to as the deep state.

“I think that there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office, there are people who stay in government – and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration,” Spicer said.

And the previous administration’s agenda was pretty friendly to globalists and Islamists. And the one before that. Just look at the foreign policy maneuvers we’ve made over the past couple decades.

Working to encourage regime change via the arming of rebels with ties to extremist groups in Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iran. It doesn’t always work– but the attempts always have one major purpose: To protect Saudi interests, which in turn protects the petro-dollar and the global financial cartel pulling all the strings.

It’s a conspiracy alright– but not really a theory.

So why Higgins’ ouster? Well, you can’t say that sort of stuff out loud. And you certainly can’t commit it to paper. That’s how theories turn in to investigations. And that’s not something the Washington establishment can have happen.

Illinois will soon have the strongest statewide protections for immigrants in the country

Steve Balich Editor Note:     Illinois is taxing its’ citizens out of the State. Public Sector Pensions are unsustainable. Yet our leaders want to burden the broken out of cash system with more immigrants getting all sorts of welfare and benefits while at the same time over crowding the justice system and educational system. To make things worse illegals take citizen jobs. We the people that will again be suffering at the hand of elected officials that vote for things like this need to call their State Reps & Senators as well as the Governor.

* Press release…
Following Community-Led Effort, Gov. Rauner Commits to Sign Illinois TRUST Act
Bill backed by broad coalition would make Illinois a national leader in welcoming immigrants, and provide strongest statewide protections in the country
(CHICAGOIL) After hundreds of community leaders visited their state legislators in Springfield and in district, thousands of residents called the Governor’s office, and two days after community leaders presented the Governor with over 3,600 postcards collected in just three weeks, the Campaign for a Welcoming Illinois is proud to announce that Governor Bruce Rauner has committed to signing the Illinois TRUST Act (SB 31). The TRUST Act received bipartisan support in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly. A date and time for the bill signing will be announced shortly.
“At a time when many are scapegoating immigrants, Republicans and Democrats are coming together in Illinois to reject xenophobic rhetoric and policies,” said Andy Kang, legal director at Asian Americans Advancing Justice | Chicago. “We want to thank the Governor’s team for working with us in the lead-up to this announcement, and we look forward to the signing ceremony.”

Under the TRUST Act, local police cannot comply with immigration detainers and warrants not issued by a judge. Local police also cannot stop, search, or arrest anyone based on that person’s immigration or citizenship status.

 

Estela, a founding member of PASO (West Suburban Action Project) and an undocumented mother of three from Melrose Park, was a key leader in the statewide Campaign for a Welcoming Illinois. “This law will go a long way to shield me, my family, my community and hundreds of thousands of Illinoisresidents from the risk of family separation through deportation. I am grateful that the Governor and the General Assembly have listened to the desires of people from throughout Illinois and bring us one big step closer to make our state welcoming for all.”
“The Illinois TRUST Act will be a national model for common-sense, constitutional state-level immigration policy,” said Mark Fleming, associate director of litigation at the National Immigrant Justice Center. “We are proud to live in a state that is taking action to defend basic due process rights for all of our residents, no matter where we come from or what we look like.”
Illinois will soon have the strongest statewide protections for immigrants in the country. This is due to the tireless efforts of over 60 organizations from across the state that were part of the campaign to pass the TRUST Act,” said Lawrence Benito, chief executive officer at Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, one of the co-conveners of the campaign steering committee. “This accomplishment is a testament to our communities’ power. It shows what we are collectively capable of during these trying times, and sets the stage for our next campaigns and future victories.”
The TRUST Act is the work of the Campaign for a Welcoming Illinois, and is endorsed by over 60 community organizations from across the state. The full supporter list can be found at www.TrustInIL.org. The TRUST Act has also received support from legal and advocacy groups, and law enforcement agencies from throughout Illinois.

The Left Is Burying Vital Information About Child Safety

The Left Is Burying Vital Information About Child Safety

From Mommy Underground August 2017

It is common knowledge that government agencies kick the can down the road and make strategic decisions affecting everyday Americans.

There are literally hundreds of agencies and government offices conducting studies which are created with the purpose of informing Americans on health and safety.

But many studies and reports are buried, sidetracked, or delayed for political motivations, and the latest report to be put on the back burner will shock American parents.

The EPA has been conducting scientific research for years on the dangers of environmental pollutants and their effects on our children.

These toxic substances may be found in playgrounds, daycare centers, and schools, so why hasn’t the report been released to the public?

NBC News reported:

A landmark Environmental Protection Agency report concluding that children exposed to toxic substances can develop learning disabilities, asthma and other health problems has been sidetracked indefinitely amid fierce opposition from the chemical industry.

America’s Children and the Environment, Third Edition, is a sobering analysis of the way in which pollutants build up in children’s developing bodies and the damage they can inflict.  

The report is unpublished, but was posted on EPA’s website in draft form in March 2011, marked “Do not Quote or Cite.”  The report, which is fiercely contested by the chemical industry, was referred to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), where it still languishes.

For the first time since the ACE series began in 2000, the draft cites extensive research linking common chemical pollutants to brain damage and nervous system disorders in fetuses and children.

It also raises troubling questions about the degree to which children are exposed to hazardous chemicals in air, drinking water and food, as well exposures in their indoor environments – including schools and day-care centers – and through contaminated lands.

The unreleased report cites hundreds of studies on the correlation between pollutants and their effect on children’s development, including dangers to children in the womb and infants who breastfeed and pick up toxins in their mother’s milk.

Despite supposed government regulations to the contrary, contamination can be found in playground equipment and ground coverings, building materials, and the water supply.

Nothing in government moves unless it is pushed, so although these substances may be banned, agencies have dragged their feet in releasing information to parents or in implementing regulations to repair or replace areas of toxic contamination.

NBC News reported:

Among other findings, the report links numerous substances to ADHD, including certain widely available pesticides; polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which were banned in 1979 but are still present in products made before then and in the environment; certain polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), used as flame retardants; and methyl mercury, a toxic metal that accumulates in larger fish, such as tuna.  The draft also cites children’s exposure to lead, particularly from aging lead water pipes, as a continuing problem.

Among the other widespread contaminants linked to learning disabilities is perchlorate, a component of rocket fuel, fireworks and other industrial products, which has polluted water around the country.  The Department of Defense, which wants to avoid paying to clean it up, is alarmed by research showing that the chemical interferes with thyroid function and otherwise damages the nervous system, according to R. Thomas Zoeller, a biology professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and an expert on perchlorate.

Those who conducted the studies cited the 2016 elections as a reason for tabling the report.

Because the studies were conducted by Obama-era agencies, findings were held in order to prevent any political repercussions in electing another Democrat president.

So, why is this vital report still being tabled?

Many government agencies are still overrun with Obama appointees, and they know the reaction of the American people to the findings will be severe.

New agency appointees under President Trump are pushing to have the report released to prevent any further danger to our nation’s children, but for now, there is no determined release date.

NBC News concluded:

The Executive Order gives OMB up to 60 days to review such proposals — although it allows for extensions. In practice, OMB has missed numerous such deadlines.  But the ACE report, which is not a proposed regulation, falls into a gray area.

“If it’s not a rule, I don’t know what it’s doing there,” Steinzor said. “And even if it were a rule, there would be a deadline and they’d be violating it.”

The report should be released now, she said, “because to protect children adequately we need all the information we can get… I guess I understand why there was great anxiety and paranoia before the election … (but) why would you not do it now? It’s sad that things have gotten so polarized that we’re afraid to release scientific information.”

For the time being, parents should do their own research and be vigilant about exposing their children to these substances, especially if they spend a great deal of time playing on older equipment or attend school or daycare in an older building.

In typical government fashion, it is up to us as parents to be an advocate for our children.
