ROMA, Texas — Four family members who ran one of the largest cartel smuggling operations in south Texas had their life in prison sentences commuted and will likely be returning to this border city from where they ran their criminal empire. One of the main destinations that the criminal organizations delivered drugs to was Chicago, Illinois.
This week, outgoing President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 209 convicted criminals and pardoned 64 others. The majority of the convictions were from drug trafficking or production offenses.
Four of those convicted criminals who had been sentenced to life in prison will be released by May 17. They ran a criminal organization made up of close to 80 men and women who worked with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to move between 100,000 to almost 750,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. during a 10-year period. The drugs were moved into Houston and then distributed to Atlanta, Chicago, and other major metropolitan areas. Continue reading »
How quickly six months passed when DNC and environmental groups called for prosecution of all those that din not believe that CO2 was a settled science. Not that the Baltic Sea is freezing for the first time in 60 years, snow in Albania in first 30 years, Venice lagoon 20 years and 5X record snow in Corsica, the debate needs to be opened about the Sun’s effects on our Earth and how to adjust to the new grand solar minimum.

FORMER MALE PROSTITUTE LARRY SINCLAIRspilled the beans back in 2008 right before the election.
Speaking before the National Press Club in DC, Larry Sinclair narrated in embarrassing detail his sexual-liaison with Barack Obama when he was a state senator of Illinois. (Excerpt:)
“I performed fellatio on Senator Obama in the limousine during the time Obama was smoking crack cocaine. After which, I had the driver take me to The Comfort Suites in Gurney Illinois.
“The following day, November 7th 1999, Senator Obama appeared at my hotel room, unannounced, uninvited, where we ingested cocaine and I again performed fellatio on Obama.”View Entire StoryHere & Here.
“We are not going gently into the night.” Yeah, you’re sending 3000 US troops and heavy armor to the Polish-Russian border. Demented. https://t.co/fQ5rLhdrTl

“Obama Finally Did Something Good”
They’ve tortured Manning and could have easily turned him into a mind-control puppet.
These bastards can program people to kill their loved ones within a few hours.
Obama finally did something good? Sure!
Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning is set to go free after nearly six years behind bars.
VICTORY: Obama commutes Chelsea Manning sentence from 35 years to 7. Release date now May 17. Background: https://t.co/HndsbVbRer

In a rush to offer clemency at the very end of his last term, Obama commuted the rest of Manning’s 35-year prison sentence for leaking classified military info to Wikileaks. Continue reading »
Just hours after John Brennan lashed out at the president-elect in an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump has responded by suggesting that the outgoing CIA Director may have been behind the publication last week of unverified and salacious intelligence connecting the president-elect to Russia….
.@FoxNews “Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.” Oh really, couldn’t do…

much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?

This is the most direct accusation yet in the escalating feud with Obama’s intelligence agencies. As we noted earlier, no president since John F. Kennedy has dared to take on the CIA or the rest of the national security establishment. Continue reading »
There is a reason Vladimir Putin and the Russian top political echelon has been avoiding the media following the onslaught of allegations lobbed at the Kremlin, and Trump: as AP writes, careful not to hurt chances for a thaw in U.S.-Russia relations, President Putin and other Russian officials “have deferred questions about their plans for future contacts with Trump and any agenda for those talks until he takes office on Friday.” In short, the “Kremlin is counting the days to his inauguration and venting its anger at Barack Obama’s outgoing administration, no holds barred.” Continue reading »
– Joe Biden on Shalom TV: ‘I am a ZIONIST’ (Video)
Watching Obama award his BFF Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom caused NBC’s Matt Lauer to “weep” and “burst out crying.”
Following a gushing report on Friday’s NBC Today about President Obama awarding Vice President Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, co-host Matt Lauer revealed that he was overtaken by emotion while watching the White House ceremony on Thursday: “So I’m glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping….I just burst out crying when I saw that moment. It was incredible.”
Introducing the three-minute segment, Lauer proclaimed: “…there was something special in Washington yesterday. It’s getting a lot of attention. President Obama surprising his vice president, Joe Biden, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.” Correspondent Andrea Mitchell followed: “It was extraordinary, Matt….Barack Obama had a parting gift for his vice president, Joe Biden. Also on display, the kind of friendship rarely seen between high-powered politicians here in Washington.”
I burst out laughing.

“It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” rages D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) after Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration, has been ordered removed from command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
As The Washington Post reports, Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the midst of the presidential ceremony, classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.

The Obama administration just handed even more power to the incoming Trump administration to invade the privacy of American citizens. The recent approval of new procedures for an existing executive order will allow the NSA to share the private data it collects with all 16 agencies of the United States intelligence community. The 23-page outline of the new procedures lifts previous limits placed on the way information was filtered before being disseminated to individual agencies.
As SHTFPlan.com’s Mac Slavo notes, we should take notice at the government preparations for disaster, and the possibility of a cataclysmic collision with damaging objects in space.
At the same time, we should take notice at what they are preparing for with all the billions of dollars thrown at defense and survival, it comes in secretive infrastructure for a reclusive sect of power, and in top-down plans to contain the unrest.
Preparations for the individual to survive, and be resilient are not being put in place in this government, though many other governments have made such an investment into the lives of individuals. Time and again, these people are told to brace for the worst, with little to show for it. A few have made their preps, and it may yet prove useful in this or some other disaster. Continue reading »
Having arrived in Germany a few days ago, a mass of over 3,000 US ground troops backed by a large column of American tanks began advancing eastward toward the Russian border yesterday, heading across Poland as part of a major NATO operation called Atlantic Resolve.
Unlike a lot of more specific war-games simulating explicit wars on certain fronts, Atlantic Resolve was initially launched just to spite Russia over the civil war in Eastern Ukraine, and seems to be designed more or less to simply antagonize Russia militarily.
And it’s doing it’s job, in that event, as Russian officials expressed serious concern over the matter, saying they believe the advance of a large number of US troops heading toward Russia is a threat to national security. They also added that they don’t appreciate having a large number of troops massed on their European border by a nation that isn’t even European. Continue reading »
According to an estimate recently released by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), in 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs in seven different countries.
As even the most pro-administration publications have noted, that amounts to 72 bombs per day – three bombs per hour – every day for the entire year. Unfortunately, this didn’t classify as “violence” worthy of criticism by Meryl Streep and her colleagues in Hollywood.
As noted by the CFR estimate, however, the figures are relatively conservative, meaning the number of bombs dropped by the Obama administration in 2016 may be much higher: Continue reading »

The idea of the Islamic State was “born” in the U.S. military prison camp Bucca in Iraq. Many of its future leader were interned there and had time and space to develop their philosophy and to plan their future operations.
In 2012 the Defense Intelligence Agency warned of the rise of an Islamic State entity in Syria and Iraq:
THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.
In an August 2014 NYT interview with Thomas Friedman President Obama said that the U.S. knew about the dangers of ISIS but did nothing to stop its expansion in Iraq because it could be used to oust then Prime Minister Maliki: Continue reading »
Three years ago the US withdrew their last tank from European soil. But on Friday a tank brigade will start being unloaded in Bremerhaven on its way to NATO’s eastern frontier.
The arrival of three US military cargo ships at the north German port signals a step up in a military stand-off between NATO and Russia, after Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
On Wednesday the cargo ship Resolve docked at Bremerhaven. By Saturday, Freedom and Endurance will have followed in its wake. Continue reading »
For weeks, the left-wing media has been absurdly claiming that patriot websites and a Republican President elect are working for the Russians. The truth is exactly the flip side: Democrats have been working with the Russians for decades to subvert American culture, destabilize America’s institutions and overrun the U.S. government with Marxist-communist leftist infiltrators who despise liberty and the Constitution.
For example, CNN’s Chris Cuomo is a blatant communist sympathizer who celebrated the murderous Castro regime by claiming Castro “lifted everyone up.” After Castro’s death, CNN talking heads gushed for days about how glorious Castro was, apparently oblivious to the mass political executions of men, women and children committed by Castro over decades of exploitation and tyranny. The exact words of Cuomo leave no doubt that he worships communist dictators: Continue reading »
“Everything calls peace, Schalom! Then it will occur – a new Middle East war suddenly flames up, big naval forces are facing hostiley in the Mediterranean – the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkan: I see a “large one” falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him – then impact is on impact. …”
Just days after we reported that the US had begun deploying some 2,800 tanks, trucks and other military equipment to Germany, from where they would be transported by rail and road to Eastern Europe as part of a buildup of NATO reinforcements against “Russian expansion”, the next US deployment has made its way to Europe over the weekend, when some 4,000 US troops arrived in the German port of Bremerheven, on their way to Wroclaw, Poland under a planned NATO operation to “reassure the alliance’s Eastern European allies” in the face of what NATO has dubbed mounting Russian aggression.
The American soldiers landed in Wroclaw, home to a key Nato and Polish air base in south-west Poland. The troops will be followed by the roughly 2,800 tanks and other pieces of military equipment which are currently en route from Germany.
The delivery of US Abrams tanks, Paladin artillery, and Bradley fighting vehicles, as well as supporting troops, marks a new phase of America’s continuous presence in Europe, which will now be based on a nine-month rotation. Continue reading »
(RPI – Op-Ed) Last week, as the mainstream media continued to obsess over the CIA’s evidence-free claim that the Russians hacked the presidential election, President Obama quietly sent 300 US Marines back into Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. This is the first time in three years that the US military has been sent into that conflict zone, and it represents a final failure of Obama’s Afghanistan policy. The outgoing president promised that by the end of his second term, the US military would only be present in small numbers and only on embassy duty. But more than 8,000 US troops will remain in Afghanistan as he leaves office.
When President Obama was first elected he swore that he would end the US presence in Iraq (the “bad” war) and increase US presence in Afghanistan (the “good” war). He ended up increasing troops to both wars, while the situation in each country continued to deteriorate. Continue reading »
On a scale of importance from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most important, this breaking development is a 500.

On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections.
If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.
