Bitter lessons 25 years
after Waco, Texas, siege

The Hill [DC], by James Bovard

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/20/2018 4:46:28 AM

Twenty-five years ago today, FBI tanks smashed into the ramshackle home of the Branch Davidians outside Waco, Texas. After the FBI collapsed much of the building atop the residents, a fire erupted and 76 corpses were dug out of the rubble. Unfortunately, the American political system and media have never faced the lessons from that tragic 1993 day. Fifty-one days before the FBI final assault, scores of federal Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents launched an attack on the Davidians’ home spurred by allegations that they had converted semi-automatic rifles to full-automatic capacity. The ATF’s lead investigator had previously rejected an offer

Of all the inhuman monsters that comprised bubba´s administration, Janet Sterno was, physically and morally, one of the ugliest. No doubt a PIAPS selection.

Carefully concealed at the time and thereafter is the fact that a large number of the victims were Black.
I watched the whole thing, live, on satellite TV. Back then we could access live feeds. It was horrible and unbelievable. As soon as it was possible the bulldozers rolled in and 45 minutes later there was nothing. Not a shred of evidence of this evil act remained.

The Clinton admistration will be remembered for three things: The Waco massacre, the kidnapping of Elian Gonzales, and Monica taking a knee under the Resolute Desk. Never trust a draft dodger.

No mention of the fact that the head of the Davidians David Koresh was often seen in town and could have been apprehended at any time. I think Hillary was pushing Janet to do something. The Clintons have never had to answer for this fiasco.

FTA:

“Waco should have taught the disastrous consequences of unleashing government agencies from the law and the Constitution.”

Waco and the Texas siege taught us how far we have strayed from a government of the people by the people and for the people. We should have known, if not before Waco most certainly afterwards, that we are no longer the nation envisioned by our founders.

It´s not just in these most blatant symptoms of a totalitarian state, just listen to how they speak of "paying for tax cuts." That government first attitude should send chills up our spines because when it´s government first, Waco happens, Branch Davidian annihilation happens.

What disturbs me the most is that half of the country want´s more of the same.

This and Ruby Ridge were the genesis of the deep state. The Clinton´s corrupted Federal LE including the FBI. That´s how Hillary had 500 FBI files in the White House. Federal LE has been used since then by Democrats against WTP. It has so metastasized since then that a coup d´etat was run out of the DOJ with cooperation of the FBI and the previous White House occupants. The Constitutional Republic existence is threatened by the deep state. The country was founded so as to not have a Federal Police force like the Stasi but that is what we have. God help us and President Trump!

The crime scene in the aftermath was bulldozed very quickly after the siege, destroying critical evidence to cover up from discovery many things which would be controversial.

There were many people in town who knew lots of other information that was never vetted. This could have been handled differently than what happened in the end.

Watched a interview with the county sheriff who stated that if the atf had contacted him he would have called Koresh and had him come to the sheriff´s office where they could have arrested him. The sheriff stated that he had arrested Koresh several times before and each time he called & told Koresh to come in.
But when the SS wants a confrontation thats what will happen.

I wonder if we will have a new season of the FBI Files containing: Waco, the thousands of forensic lies tainting 1000´s of cases, the 500 FBI files at Clinton´s WH, the Hillary investigation, what really happened to Flight 800, the many terrorists on the FBI radar but never deported. Will those stories be on next season?

I worked as an audio engineer (mixer) at that time. I happened to be in Master Control when news was breaking live about the United States military was attacking other Americans. I was shell shocked. Reno, apparently offered to resign. Clinton would accept her resignation. Impeachment should have begun then.

Fitton is right. Weasely clarke, among others, should still be answering questions about their involvement in this fiasco. A #4 states, koresh could have been apprehended easily in town. Reno´s raiders chose the venue and method. They should have suffered criminal charges.

Andrea Tantaros’ Lawsuit

A judge in the Southern District of New York threw out Friday the case former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros filed against the network in April of 2017. In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge George B. Daniels dismantled Tantaros’ case, saying her claims were “based primarily on speculation and conjecture.” The lawsuit, which Tantaros filed after accusing the late Fox News head Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, named Ailes along with co-President Bill Shine and several other executives. She alleged that the network had used closed circuit cameras to spy on female employees, used proxies to attack her on social

WINDSOR, England – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day has come, and the sun is shining outside of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle where early guests arrived about four hours before the royal wedding is set to begin. Many of the first guests to arrive were part of the approximately 1,200 members of the public that Markle and Prince Harry invited to witness their wedding, some of whom were invited due to their involvement in specific charities that are meaningful to the couple. Those guests will watch the wedding from a designated area outside of the castle, while

The White House has continued its communications crackdown to control the number of embarrassing leaks after a junior aide was reportedly discovered to have taped President Donald Trump´s meetings. The aide was found to have played the recording to impress friends, several people familiar with the situation told The New York Times. The crackdown followed the embarrassing leak regarding Kelly Sadler, a communications aide, who reportedly made a disparaging comment regarding Sen. John McCain´s physical condition last week. The White House and Sadler did not deny the account. As part of an effort to curb negative media coverage, officials have

If you´re a big Trump fan, you probably don´t like me because I criticize him when I think he´s wrong. If you´re a big Trump hater, you probably don´t like me because I praise him when I think he´s right. I´m okay with you disliking me for either of these reasons, because I believe objective truth exists independently of my personal feelings about any particular individual.(Snip) MS-13´s motto is "mata, viola, controla," which means "kill, rape, control." And it´s not just hyperbole. That´s what they do, and they´ve been doing a lot of it. They´re drug traffickers. They're rapists. They run prostitution rings, often involving children.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, has been interviewed 147 times on broadcast and cable news shows overall in the past ten weeks, including 74 times on CNN, according to the conservative Media Research Center. And during this stretch on the air, and on Twitter and email, there have been times when the credibility of the 47-year-old attorney has been called into question by his critics, as he continues to be provided perhaps more airtime than any non-payroll person on cable news in recent memory. The most recent example of Avenatti arguably providing speculation as fact came after a May 3 NBC News

Media coverage of Hamas´s attacks on the Israeli border have been, as usual, a dumpster fire of idiocy and ignorance. Hamas itself now admits that "50 of the 62 martyrs" were card-carrying terrorists. One of the heads of Hamas just boasted to an interviewer: "This is not peaceful resistance." No facts or admissions will intrude on the media narrative, which is that Israel is diabolically slaughtering civilians because Israelis enjoy killing people. One of the tropes that is being repeated everywhere is this one, promoted here with complete credulity by the New York Times: International law allowed for the use of lethal

The Sea Is Rising, but Not
Because of Climate Change
Wall Street Journal, by Fred Singer    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/17/2018 4:44:13     Post Reply
Of all known and imagined consequences of climate change, many people fear sea-level rise most. But efforts to determine what causes seas to rise are marred by poor data and disagreements about methodology. The noted oceanographer Walter Munk referred to sea-level rise as an “enigma”; it has also been called a riddle and a puzzle. It is generally thought that sea-level rise accelerates mainly by thermal expansion of sea water, the so-called steric component. But by studying a very short time interval, it is possible to sidestep most of the complications, like “isostatic adjustment” of the shoreline (as continents rise after

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need?

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way."
