AN OKLAHOMA REPRESENTATIVE FEELS NO NEED TO REPRESENT HIS CONSTITUENTS
By the Watchman
This is a tale of cowardice and misrepresentation of one of our U.S. Representatives. It also shows that he is willing to cheat to stay in office. We started looking at him when this story crossed our news feed. He has officially filed to run for office in the 2018 elections. There’s a campaign promise broken.
When he was first running for office he said he wouldn’t seek more than three terms. The official filing for office comes one day after being officially warned by the Federal Election Commission that he had accepted donations and made expenditures on his 2018 campaign without filing official candidacy for the 2018 cycle.

The Oklahoma City Bombing After 22 Years

The Oklahoma City Bombing After 22 Years

Paul Craig Roberts

Today, April 19, 2017, is the 22nd anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing. The bombing of the federal Murrah office building was blamed by federal authorities on a bomb made from fertilizer inside a truck parked in front of the building by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

Investigators who report the actual facts are branded “conspiracy theorists” and dismissed. This has been the Deep State’s way of controlling explanations since the 1940s.

Last year, as Trump’s front-runner status in the Republican primaries began to truly unnerve the conservative establishment, several figures emerged as possible “fail-safes” to the increasing inevitability of a Trump-Clinton showdown. One of these figures was former four-star general James Mattis, now Secretary of Defense, who was courted by “an anonymous group of conservative billionaires,” as well as former aides of the Bush family. According to the Daily Beast, the billionaires numbered nearly a dozen and were comprised of “influential donors” and “politically-involved billionaires with deep pockets and conservative leanings.”

Coddingtons Corner: Jared Kushner — A Suspected Gangster Within the Trump White House

WAYNE MADSEN | 17.04.2017 |
Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has emerged as a significant influence within the policy-making apparatus of the White House. After a rather public imbroglio with Trump’s strategic policy adviser Stephen Bannon over the U.S. cruise missile attack on the Shayrat airbase in Syria, Kushner is «in», as they often say in Washington, and Bannon is «out». In any case, the anti-globalist faction, which is led by Bannon, has received verbal «thumbs down» on several fronts from Trump.
