Majority of Americans would rather be ‘ruled’ by random people from the phone book than by Current Congress

More Americans are waking up to how corrupt the government is. According to a new Rasmussen poll, 54% of likely United States voters believe that a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job of ‘governing’ than the current Congress.

Just 27% of voters believe Congress is doing a better job than a randomly selected group of individuals would do. 

And more than two-thirds, 67 percent–believe that the average member of Congress listen mostly to “party leaders” (the elites), more than to constituents.

Amid elite claims that misinformation is rampant, just 14% of people trust mainstream news to be accurate.

A neww poll by the American Press Institute and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that just fourteen percent of the U.S. population trusts the news media to deliver accurate information. More Americans admit they believe in astrology. See here.

This although today’s academic, government, corporate, and news leaders now decry misinformation” as a major social problem. During the past several years, numerous Big-Tech- and academic-sponsored nonprofits have been launched to convince people to trust only mainstream, government-curated “news” sources.

Modern government is supported ONLY by elites

Rasmussen Polling 2024. Veteran pollster Scott Rasmussen surveyed a group of Americans he calls the elite 1% earlier this year. Rasmussen was astounded at the stark differences between the opinions of elites and the rest of the population.

“The elite 1%—individuals who make over $150,000 a year, live in densely populated areas, and have postgraduate degrees—are overwhelmingly liberal.

Among the elite 1%, about half say Americans have “too much freedom.” And among politically obsessed 1%ers, about 7 out of 10 say, “There’s too much individual freedom in America.”

Rasmussen says In America, it’s been 50 years since most voters trusted the government to do the right thing most of the time. But among the elite 1%, 70% trust the government.

In 1932 the US Capitol was truly Stormed. US military leaders like Patton and McArthur removed demonstrators with bayonets.

The January 6, 2021 prosecutions have produced the longest prison sentences for rioting or demonstrating in American history. Many “mainstream” journalists report the event–which produced a 6-hour delay of a congressional proceeding–as cataclysmic. The US Justice Department has prosecuted some 1,400 J6 demonstrators, with J6 defendants receiving sentences as long as 22 years in prison.

But a substack blogpost on April 15, by “Conundrum Cluster,” recounted another episode in which the US Capitol and its grounds were actually, truly “stormed” and occupied: the 1932 “Bonus Army” occupation. “Your high school history textbook was lying to you” about the Bonus Army episode, according to the post.

The episode began during the deepest part of the Great Depression when thousands of unemployed veterans came to Washington, D.C. to lobby for early “bonus” payouts. (World War 1 enlisted men were expecting pensions by the 1940s, but many voices suggested the US government should dole out the money to veterans in need as a depression remedy.

Many public school students learn about the “Bonus Army March” as an episode of brutal suppression by the federal government. But “Conundrum Cluster” points to startling facts regarding the true story. It turns out that fewer than 50 percent of the demonstrators were veterans at all. And there was a hardcore, truly communist element organizing the entire affair.

Organizer John Pace (himself a communist) explained in a August 28, 1949 article in the Washington Star:

I was ordered by my Red superiors to provoke riots… I was told to use every trick to bring about bloodshed in the hopes that President Hoover would be forced to call out the Army… The Communists didn’t care how many veterans were killed. I was told that Moscow had ordered riots and bloodshed in hopes that this might set off the revolution.

The demonstrators took over and occupied numerous federal office buildings; for weeks.

“On July 14, 10,000 demonstrators led by Pace staged a march on the Capitol and a communist committee stormed the Vice President’s office. On July 18th they swarmed the DC Courthouse. On July 22, they occupied the Capitol building and had to be removed. On July 25th, a large confrontation occurred with Capitol Police in which many communist leaders, including Pace, were arrested. The city was paralyzed.”

“It’s important to note that a significant proportion of the crowd assembled in DC had prior criminal histories. FBI ran fingerprint matches on Bonus Marchers who had applied for travel loans and found that 24.4% of them had criminal convictions. That figure ran up to 33.3% for those arrested in the July 25th confrontation. A third of those arrested weren’t even veterans.”

“By July 28th, President Hoover and the DC authorities ordered the limited eviction of Bonus Marchers from an abandoned Treasury Department building on Pennsylvania Avenue.” “The 200 occupants of the building had been ordered to evacuate 4 times beforehand.”

“When a small crew of Treasury Department workmen escorted by 75 police officers attempted the eviction, they were confronted by 5,000 Bonus Marchers from nearby camps. The scene quickly turned into a full scale riot. Bystanders from surrounding neighborhoods gathered to watch the chaos unfold. The crowd was estimated to be 20,000 strong. Police were attacked with bricks and clubs, but had been ordered not to draw their guns. Dozens of officers suffered serious injuries. Later, as reinforcements arrived and a huge fight for control of the building broke out, two police officers were cornered on the upper floors. They fired in self defense, killing two Bonus Marchers. These were the only two fatalities of the entire ordeal.”

THE BONUS ARMY EPISODE stands in stark comparison to the January 6 episode. For J6 protestors, the federal government has spent hundreds of millions, rounding up and prosecuting them. But Bonus Army participants–who ACTUALLY did take over the Capitol and occupied the area for months–were barely prosecuted at all.

Shocking Revelations: U.S. Government has been “Interfacing” with Corporations to Monitor Dissenters

Washington, D.C. April 25, 2024. House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has revealed that the federal government has created ‘profiles’ on the American people and is keeping them in a ‘secret portal’ shared with companies to identify customer’s levels of extremism, .

An “interface shared between over 650 companies and federal officials holds a ‘secret portal’ containing sensitive data on American citizens, Jordan warned during a House Weaponization Committee hearing Thursday.”

The Daily Mail reports that there is a major effort by U.S. government officials to use major corporations to track, monitor, and control the American population.

“‘The federal government is building profiles on the American people. And the profile is not based criminal conduct, it’s based on political belief.’ “

Just 22 percent of Americans have a positive opinion of the U.S. government.

The Pew Research Center released data from their American Trends Panel survey on Thursday, which found only 22 percent of adults have a positive opinion of the federal government.

Even Democrats, the most fanatically pro-government extremist segment of the population, report declining sentiments toward the federal government. Just 32% of Democrats report positive views of the federal government. And only around one-in-ten Republicans (11%) see the federal government favorably.

WHAT ABOUT SUPPORT FOR STATE GOVERNMENT?

Pew reports, “State governments get mixed ratings: 50% of adults have a favorable opinion and 49% have an unfavorable view. This reflects a 4-point decline in favorability since 2022 and a 9-point decline since 2019.”

New York Times worked with Pentagon to find Government “leaker”

Some 50 years ago the New York Times heroically published “The Pentagon Papers,” including various classified documents showing the US Defense Department was lying about casualties in the Vietnam War.

The US military was actually suffering greater casualties–and achieving less success–than the Pentagon had been saying.

FAST FORWARD to 2024. Today’s New York Times is a reverse image of its former self. Today’s New York Times has been WORKING WITH the Pentagon to republish the government’s narratives regarding conflicts in Ukraine and Israel.

And now there is evidence that the New York Times has been working as a secret government spy agency, helping the government track down and identify leakers of government information.

The Times had worked “feverishly” to assist the Pentagon in identifying Teixeira.

“In an odd twist,” according to American Institute for Economic Research, “the Times had gone from publishing state secrets to helping the government conceal them.”

WHAT CLASSIFIED INFORMATION WAS SO IMPORTANT: THAT UKRAINE IS SUFFERING MASSIVE CASUALTIES COMPARED TO RUSSIA.

 The documents “suggest that the Ukrainian forces are in more dire straits than their government has acknowledged publicly,” the New York Times admits. The Associated Press, meanwhile, noted that “at least one of the documents shows estimates of Russian troops deaths in the Ukraine war that are significantly lower than numbers publicly stated by US officials. Under a section titled ‘Total Assessed Losses,’ one document lists 16,000-17,500 Russian casualties and up to 71,000 Ukrainian casualties.”

This is a very different picture than what Americans have been told by military officials. For example, Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, publicly stated Russia had suffered “significantly well over” 100,000 casualties in Ukraine.

Government BBC radio tries valiantly to debunk the true fact that Arctic ice recently measured its highest extent in 21 years

London. March 2024. According to the Daily Sceptic, “Arctic sea ice on January 8th stood at its highest level in 21 years.” Citing the U.S.-based National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC), the report indicated “that sea ice recorded its third highest monthly gain in the modern 45-year record.”

Further, according to the science blog No Tricks Zone,, “the reading up to January 8th has now far exceeded the average for the years 2011-2020,” and also exceeded “the average for the years 2001-2010.”

The British government’s BBC radio show “More or Less”  ‘fact checked’ the Daily Sceptic’s report. The government show’s researchers were forced to admit that that sea ice in the Arctic had soared to its highest level for 21 years on January 8th of 2024. But immediately after confirming the Daily Sceptic’s claim was TRUE, the BBC reporters argued that the information was “cherry picked.”

Writing for The Daily Sceptic and WattsUpWiththat.com, Chris Morrison states that “[t]The ‘fact check’ did little more than confirm the widely held suspicion that many BBC programmes are now infected with a need to crowbar a climate catastrophe narrative into broadcast messages.”

New York government shuts down another prominent antigovernment website–Vdare.com

Governments everywhere are ramping up efforts to silence antigovernment, conservative, or libertarian speech and ideas. The US government has spent millions of dollars on censorship efforts in the past five years.

Now Letitia James, the Attorney General of New York has launched a fishing expedition lawsuit against the prominent Vdare.com website. The site, founded by Peter Brimelow, features lots of conservative content and often focuses on immigration issues.

This is more lawfare aimed at destroying or silencing voices who question the government. And now Brimelow writes that Vdare.com may soon fold and surrender the site.

The website is now being fined $250 per day for “contempt.” Brimelow writes that “On March 27, 2024, in another of her lightning-fast NYAG James-compliant rulings, New York State Supreme Court Judge Sabrina Kraus held us in Contempt of Court because we have not yet complied (because we were fighting it) with her January 23, 2023 order that we meet NYAG James’ massive and crippling subpoena demands.

FBI is amping up home visits to chat with people about their Facebook posts

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit is out with a terrifying news story about the FBI visiting people at their homes to talk about Facebook posts.

A muslim woman named Rolla Abdeljawad was visited at her home in Stillwater, Oklahoma by two men in plain clothes claiming to be FBI agents. The “agents” questioned Abdeljawad about her recent Facebook post.

The post was NOT “threatening,” pornographic, or otherwise unlawful. It was apparently a post about ISIS being fake or perhaps ISIS being controlled by US or Israeli intelligence.

The crusading Jim Hoft reports on a number of other similar encounters by people with FBI agents in recent weeks.

Apparently, the visitors have been confirmed as FBI agents and admitted that they regularly visit people to warn them about their social media information.

This seems to be associated with increasing government operations to censor and silence antigovernment information on social media.
