    We are ALL being played

    no matter your political leanings/beliefs

    here's a couple of books for those that can read, and for you libs there is always the audio version!

    This is from an investigative journalist, apolitical, smart, smart lady. After reading this is hard to know where to go find the truth. And it's not all about Obama:

    Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington
    Sharyl Attkisson

    and from a decidedly conservative guy, former law enforcement and secret service, about the framing of Donald Trump and the Russian collusion hoax, sourced and footnoted from non-conservative sources. If 1/10th of what he says and has researched is true, this goes beyond politics to treason. It's an entertaining read. The relationships between the players alleging collusion, for the laymen like me, is a smoking gun:

    Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump
    Dan Bongino

      Dan Bongino is a good, local dude.

      That being said, read "This Town" by Mark Leibovich. They (the political class) are all in bed together in some form or fashion.

        This becomes clear, and even more tangible, in a local sense if you ever have the opportunity to acquaint yourself with your courthouse happenings.

        Attorneys and judges... all get together at the end of the day. They all know each other. They all came from law school. Read the same texts. Quizzed on the same pool of knowledge.

        "The world is a stage" was said a long time ago. Don't get too smart and think otherwise.

          Talk about local.....


          He is a FLA resident now but has ties certainly back here.

          He does have a podcast but I can't get into it much.. I know enough to stay out of it all. I try to keep a balance.

          I may check out some of these books.. but the one that can be read the next time you are on the porcelain is by Retired USMC Major General Smedley Butler, " War is a Racket".

            I've seen this even in traffic court. Represent yourself and you are basically ignored.

            But the one time I hired a lawyer after an accident where the Cop was a complete duck to me, I told the lawyer about a angle I had thought of to fight it. We went with my idea, he pitched it, and I walked out with the charge dropped.

            Granted, he stated the case in a very precise way, but in my experience I wouldn't be taken seriously enough on my own to even make the case.

            And yes, the lawyer knew the judge, and had a private conversation before the case was heard....

                He lived in my hood. Would do his daily, family walks .. see him often. I never really approached him much wanting him to enjoy his home and not be paparazi.

                I ran into him at National Harbor for CPAC. Introduced myself and we chatted for a while.

                He is very involved with his podcast and now it seems books!

                Yes, after the race didn't go his favor he was out of town. I believe wife is from Florida? Maybe he will set up residency therr are try for office again.

                  same exact thing I was going to post here. Ive never believed in Lawyers and always represented myself but when I was facing a violation of a probation on a complete joke I had to spend nearly $3k for a lawyer to spend a few minutes chatting with the Judge about it and getting it thrown out.

                    And that is just your local court house.

                    Follow up the levels. Most states attorneys try to become county elected positions. Then run for state level. Then from the state go national.

                    The game stays the same, just more murky, more money, more blackmail, more to lose, more script to follow.

                    Those who are foolish enough to believe R vs D vs I ..... Are so caught up in hatred they cannot see beyond their nose.

                    At the end of the day they are all feasting at the same tables.

                        It is short, more an essay. On YT there are spoken versions, too, if you are a book on tape type.

                          Can second. Read it while in the USMC. Fantastic piece of literature. Definitely eye opening.

                            Thank you for your service.

                            Seems that book would be contraband. Did it change your thoughts, reasons for your being there?

                            You learn of the greats, the Chesty Puller.. but you don't get told of this piece it seems from my reading.

                            We sponsor a USNA plebe who is USMC option. I am juggling in my mind if I leave a copy in his room to read.

                              Two sides of the same coin. With the exception of a few social issues, both parties are the same.

                              They both take money from Wall Street, they both continue to vote for things like the Patriot Act and the constant erosion of our civil liberties, they both continue to perpetuate never ending war, lack of fiscal responsibility, etc.
