The last month has thrown me completely out of the loop. I'm sure I've missed out on quite a lot. It'll take me a while to get back into the zone, so bear with me until then.
I'll delve in the best I can.

Another Potential Rope-A-Dope By Trump On His Enemies
Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn't the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!
12:34 AM - Mar 1, 2018
Trump has fired Comey, Bannon, and others, yet still allows Jeff Sessions to stay as his whipping-boy. If Trump so desired it, all it would take is one summons into the Oval Office and we'd have a new Attorney General.
No, I continue to believe Sessions is right where the president wants him; to serve as his public foil. While Trump berates the A.G. on a weekly basis, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz- whom Trump emphasized was an Obama appointee - is allowed to quietly make the case against the Deep State DOJ and FBI. It is very similar to my Trojan Horse theory about Robert Mueller.
With each public gripe against Sessions, Trump inoculates the Mueller and Horowitz investigations from press criticism when they ultimately exonerate his administration and prosecute the Obama/Clinton misdeeds .
Let me explain.
The MSM takes the bait laid out in Trump's tweet:
"Trump's attacking Sessions again. Look at him trying to force his own judicial team to go after his political enemies. That dictator! He's also trying to discredit Mueller and Horowitz as holdovers who are out to get him. The paranoid fucker!"
The MSM believe their enemy's enemy is their friend:
"Mueller and Horowitz are men of distinction and honor! Trump is so scared! Mueller is gonna get Trump and Horowitz might find a way to bury the worst of what Barry and Hillary did."
Yet, I wager what Horowitz puts in his final report will be utterly damning to the prior regime and will dovetail and corroborate much of what the Congressional committees and, yes, Mueller are finding out about about Obama andClinton's Russian collusion.
I think these are three separate investigations into the same broad topic. And not one of them are from a Trump DOJ. It will require mental gymnastics by the mainstream media and the left to discredit all of them. I don't think they can contort that well, especially after spending almost a year of rigidly hyping the Mueller investigation.
From the Way Back Machine
Important article from 2016. If you want to know part of the reason for the censoring of alternative voices in social media, here you go.
A lot of this can also be traced back to the Patriot Act, which was the least patriotic bill ever enacted.
More About Australian Diplomat Alexander Downer
From John Solomon of The Hill:
The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton's charitable efforts, documents show.
Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer's role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry's website.
Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia.
Downer's name should not be unfamiliar. In Storm Thread #13, I highlighted a Lifezette Article focusing on Michael Smith, a journalist and retired police investigator from Australia who was asked by the Trump-era FBI to provide details about the Clinton Foundation transaction with the Aussie government.
More from The Hill article:
Downer, now Australia's ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.
But lawmakers say the FBI didn't tell Congress about Downer's prior connection to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans say they are concerned the new information means nearly all of the early evidence the FBI used to justify its election-year probe of Trump came from sources supportive of the Clintons, including the controversial Steele dossier.
"The Clintons' tentacles go everywhere. So, that's why it's important," said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) chairman of a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that has been taking an increasingly visible role defending the Trump administration in the Russia probe. "We continue to get new information every week it seems that sort of underscores the fact that the FBI hasn't been square with us."
It would seem that this is gaining traction. The current iteration of the FBI has Smith's information about the Clinton Foundation/Downer angle which ties into the corruption of the Obama-era FBI in the FISA scandal. Congress is talking about it, as well.
The Big Picture
With the cacophony of media articles that must be foisted on the public for the sake of media ratings and/or pageviews, it's easy to get distracted from focusing on the larger trends. I get sucked up into it as well. But any time I feel blitzed by the onslaught, I remind myself to shift from that micro to the macro.
So instead of obsessing over the weirdness of the news
cycle circus - and yesterday sure was a doozy, what with the Sam Nunberg thing - let's focus on this:
The leftist Deep State's hold on the people is, by most measures, on the wane.
- Hollywood, by both ticket sales and award show ratings, is taking it on the chin.
- Nationalist candidates and parties around the world are gaining momentum compared to decades past.
- Trump's approval ratings are on the rise despite a MSM onslaught.
- The cases against Clinton and Obama corruption are moving slowly but surely towards prosecution.
And Trump's plan of discrediting the media is paying dividends.

Congratulations @FoxNews: Fox has 15 of the top 20 shows with @SeanHannity and @TuckerCarlson leading the pack at 1st and 2nd respectively. CNN has become totally irrelevant, down 19% from last year with only 1 show in the Top 25 (#24th).

So, hang in there and be cautiously optimistic. Things are going our way for the time being despite the opposition's best efforts at gaslighting the populace. The state of our world is still precarious, however. Trends can always change, so be prepared and don't get complacent.
