EL PASO WALMART SHOOTER MANIFESTO

NOTE: There was no editing or spell-checking — and any typos are included. The original source: The Drudge Report. This was posted for informational purposes only, primarily to fact-check media reports. Most of the media's main narrative has been: "A white supremacist killer drove 10 hours to kill Mexicans; and it's all President Trump's fault because of his racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric."

IMHO,  President Trump is not a racist nor a white supremacist — and he only refers to ILLEGAL immigrants, not LEGAL immigrants (and not from any specific country or of any specific race.) But because the Democrats and their media are dishonest, they rarely make that very important differentiation. And secondly, everything Trump says, the Democrats and most of the media will call rhetoric because they personally hate him and don't agree with ANY of his immigration policies.

The Inconvenient Truth

About Me

In general, I support the Christchurch shooter and his manifesto. This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion.

Some people will think this statement is hypocritical because of the nearly complete ethnic and cultural destruction brought to the Native Americans by our European ancestors, but this just reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s left is just a shadow of what was.

My motives for this attack are not at all personal. Actually the Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement. This manifesto will cover the political and economic reasons behind the attack, my gear, my expectations of what response this will generate and my personal motivations and thoughts.

Political Reasons

In short, America is rotting from the inside out, and peaceful means to stop this seem to be nearly impossible. The inconvenient truth is that our leaders, both Democrat AND Republican, have been failing us for decades. They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. The takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations.

I could write a ten page essay on all the damage these corporations have caused, but here is what is important. Due to the death of the baby boomers, the increasingly anti-immigrant rhetoric of the right and the ever increasing Hispanic population, America will soon become a one party-state. The Democrat party will own America and they know it. They have already begun the transition by pandering heavily to the Hispanic voting bloc in the 1st Democratic Debate. They intend to use open borders, free healthcare for illegals, citizenship and more to enact a political coup by importing and then legalizing millions of new voters. With policies like these, the Hispanic support for Democrats will likely become nearly unanimous in the future. The heavy Hispanic population in Texas will make us a Democrat stronghold. Losing Texas and a few other states with heavy Hispanic population to the Democrats is all it would take for them to win nearly every presidential election.

Although the Republican Party is also terrible. Many factions within the Republican Party are pro-corporation. Pro-corporation = pro-immigration. But some factions within the Republican Party don’t prioritize corporations over our future. So the Democrats are nearly unanimous with their support of immigration while the Republicans are divided over it. At least with Republicans, the process of mass immigration and citizenship can be greatly reduced.

Economic Reasons

In short, immigration can only be detrimental to the future of America. Continued immigration will make one of the biggest issues of our time automation, so much worse. Some sources say that in under
two decades, half of American jobs will be lost to it. Of course some people will be retrained, but most will not. So it makes no sense to keep on letting millions of illegal or legal immigrants flood into the United States, and to keep the tens of millions that are already here. Invaders who also have close to the highest birthrate of all ethnicities in America.

In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs. Joblessness in itself is a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the better. The lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitions social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of dependents are removed.

Even though new migrants do the dirty work, their kids typically don’t. They want to live the American Dream which is why they get college degrees and fill higher-paying skilled positions. This is why corporations lobby for even more illegal immigration even after decades of it of happening. They need to keep replenishing the low-skilled labor pool. Even as migrant children flood skilled jobs, Corporations make this worse by lobbying for even more work visas to be issued for skilled foreign workers to come here.

Recently, the senate under a REPUBLICAN administration has greatly increased the number of foreign workers that will take American jobs. Remember that both Democrats and Republicans support immigration and work visas. Corporations need to keep replenishing the labor pool for both skilled and unskilled jobs to keep wages down. So Automation is a good thing as it will eliminate the need for new migrants to fill unskilled jobs. Jobs that Americans can’t survive on anyway. Automation can and would replace millions of low-skilled jobs if immigrants were deported.

This source of competition for skilled labor from immigrants and visa holders around the world has made a very difficult situation even worse for natives as they compete in the skilled job market. To compete, people have to get better credentials by spending more time in college. It used to be that a high school degree was worth something. Now a bachelor’s degree is what’s recommended to be competitive in the job market. The cost of college degrees has exploded as their value has plummeted. This has led to a generation of indebted, overqualified students filling menial, low paying and unfulfilling jobs. Of course these migrants and their children have contributed to the problem, but are not the sole cause of it.

[The Environment]

The American lifestyle affords our citizens an incredible quality of life. However, our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heaing the destruction of our environment by shamelessly over harvesting resources. This has been a problem for decades.

For example, this phenomenon is brilliantly portrayed in the decades old classic “The Lorax”. Water sheds around the country, especially in agricultural areas, are being depleted. Fresh water is being polluted from farming and oil drilling operations. Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste, and recycling to help slow this down is almost non-existent. Urban sprawl creates inefficient cities which unnecessarily destroys millions of acres of land. We even use god knows how many trees worth of paper towels just wipe water off our hands.

Everything I have seen and heard in my short life has led me to believe that the average American isn’t willing to change their lifestyle, even if the changes only cause a slight inconvenience. The government is unwilling to tackle these issues beyond empty promises since they are owned by corporations.

Corporations that also like immigration because more people means a bigger market for their products. I just want to say that I love the people of this country, but god damn most of y’all are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.

Gear

Main gun: AK47 (WASR 10) – I realized pretty quickly that this isn’t a great choice since it’s the civilian version of the ak47. It’s not designed to shoot rounds quickly, so it overheats massively after about 100 shots fired in quick succession. I’ll have to use a heat-resistant glove to get around this.

8m3 bullet: This bullet, unlike pretty much any other 7.62x39 bullet, actually fragments like a pistol hollow point when shot out of an ak47 at the cost of penetration. Penetration is still reasonable, but not nearly as high as a normal ak47 bullet. The ak47 is definitely a bad choice without this bullet design, and may still be with it.

Other gun (if I get one): Ar15 – Pretty much any variation of this gun doesn’t heat up nearly as fast as the AK47. The round of this gun isn’t designed to fragment, but instead tumbles inside a target causing lethal wounding. This gun is probably better, but I wanted to explore different options. The ar15 is probably the best gun for military applications but this isn’t a military application. This will be a test of which is more lethal, either it’s fragmentation or tumbling.

I didn’t spend much time at all preparing for this attack. Maybe a month, probably less. I have do this before I lose my nerve. I figured that an under-prepared attack and a meh manifesto is better than no attack and no manifesto.

Reaction

Statistically, millions of migrants have returned to their home countries to reunite with the family they lost contact with when they moved to America. They come here as economic immigrants, not for asylum reasons. This is an encouraging sign that the Hispanic population is willing to return to their home countries if given the right incentive. An incentive that myself and many other patriotic Americans will provide. This will remove the threat of the Hispanic voting bloc which will make up for the loss of millions of baby boomers.

This will also make the elites that run corporations realize that it’s not in their interest to continue piss off Americans. Corporate America doesn’t need to be destroyed, but just shown that they are on the wrong side of history. That if they don’t bend, they will break.

Personal Reasons and Thoughts

My whole life I have been preparing for a future that currently doesn’t exist. The job of my dreams will likely be automated. Hispanics will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas, changing policy to better suit their needs. They will turn Texas into an instrument of a political coup which will hasten the destruction of our country. The environment is getting worse by the year. If you take nothing else from this document, remember this: INACTION IS A CHOICE.

I can no longer bear the shame of inaction knowing that our founding fathers have endowed me with the rights needed to save our country from the brink destruction. Our European comrades don’t have the gun rights needed to repel the millions of invaders that plaque their country. They have no choice but to sit by and watch their countries burn.

America can only be destroyed from the inside-out. If our country falls, it will be the fault of traitors. This is why I see my actions as faultless. Because this isn’t an act of imperialism but an act of preservation.

America is full of hypocrites who will blast my actions as the sole result of racism and hatred of other countries, despite the extensive evidence of all the problems these invaders cause and will cause.
People who are hypocrites because they support imperialistic wars that have caused the loss of tens of thousands of American lives and untold numbers of civilian lives. The argument that mass murder is okay when it is state sanctioned is absurd. Our government has killed a whole lot more people for a whole lot less.

Even if other non-immigrant targets would have a greater impact, I can’t bring myself to kill my fellow Americans. Even the Americans that seem hell-bent on destroying our country. Even if they are shameless race mixers, massive polluters, haters of our collective values, etc. One day they will see error of their ways. Either when American patriots fail to reform our country and it collapses or when we save it. But they will see the error of their ways. I promise y’all that.

I am against race mixing because it destroys genetic diversity and creates identity problems. Also because it’s completely unnecessary and selfish. 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanics form interracial unions at much higher rates than average. Yet another reason to send them back. Cultural and racial diversity is largely temporary. Cultural diversity diminishes as stronger and/or more appealing cultures overtake weaker and/or undesirable ones. Racial diversity will disappear as either race mixing or genocide will take place.

But the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific. Many have been here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country. The best solution to this for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each race. This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting each race self-determination within their respective territory(s).

My death is likely inevitable.

If I’m not killed by the police, then I’ll probably be gunned down by one of the invaders. Capture in this case if far worse than dying during the shooting because I’ll get the death penalty anyway. Worse still is that I would live knowing that my family despises me. This is why I’m not going to surrender even if I run out of ammo. If I’m captured, it will be because I was subdued somehow.

Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low hanging fruit. AKA Don’t attack heavily guarded areas to fulfll your super soldier COD fantasy. Attack low security targets. Even though you might out gun a security guard or police man, they likely beat you in armor, training and numbers. Do not throw away your life on an unnecessarily dangerous target. If a target seems too hot, live to fight another day.

My ideology has not changed for several years

My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that. Many people think that the fight for America is already lost. They couldn’t be more wrong. This is just the beginning of the fight for America and Europe. I am honored to head the fight to reclaim my country from destruction. [END]


After the El Paso Shooting

August 3, 2019 (President Trump) "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.” SOURCE

August 07, 2019 (Washington Examiner): "Has anyone actually read the El Paso manifesto?"" (by Byron York) Much discussion was spurred by an article in the New York Times with the headline, "El Paso Shooting Suspect's Manifesto Echoes Trump's Language." The story quoted just 28 words of the nearly 2,400-word manifesto. It noted that Crusius specifically wrote that his views "predate Trump." And it warned that "linking political speech, however heated, to the specific acts of ruthless mass killers is a fraught exercise." Nevertheless, the Times declared that even "if Mr. Trump did not originally inspire the gunman, he has brought into the mainstream polarizing ideas and people once consigned to the fringes of American society." SOURCE

August 9, 2019 (CNN) The man who authorities say killed 22 people at an El Paso Walmart told police that his targets were Mexicans, according to an arrest affidavit. In the affidavit, El Paso Police Detective Adrian Garcia said 21-year-old suspect Patrick Crusius told him, "I'm the shooter". According to the affidavit, which CNN has obtained and was first reported by The Washington Post, "The defendant stated his target were Mexicans." CNN is reaching out to El Paso police and a defense attorney for Crusius for comment about Garcia's account. SOURCE

Spectator: "The inconvenient truth about the El Paso shooter" (by Charles Moore): This week’s reporting of the two atrocities has painted Crusius as a white supremacist. This does not seem to be accurate. In his manifesto, he is against ethnic mingling and mass immigration, but his view that immigrants should be killed is based, not on a racial superiority theory, but on his sense that too many people pollute the environment of America.

The Mueller Hearings (links to cross examinations) July 24, 2019

There was no evidence (not just "insufficient evidence") that Trump had ever conspired with Russia, so the Democrats focused on their "obstruction of justice" charges and their "No one is above the law!" rants. But Republicans had exposed corruption within the DOJ and FBI. If you never watch Fox News, you'd never know!

------------------ What you should know! -----------------
It should be noted that prosecutors can never "exonerate" anyone; they can only present evidence. Then a judge or jury finds one guilty (or NOT guilty) of a crime.

As for obstruction: The Democrats were desperately trying to show Trump guilty of obstructing the investigation of a crime that never happened.

But if Robert Mueller set a new legal precedent, then going forward, all prosecutors should go public with all their evidence and proclaim: "Although we can't indict, we can't exonerate either." Meaning: "This guy is bad, so watch out for him!"

If anything, Trump was frustrated and wanted Mueller fired for being so biased and conflicted. The Russian Hoax investigation also cast a shadow over his administration while he was trying to conduct foreign policy and negotiate trade deals.

But even if Trump had asked someone to fire Mueller, that in itself is not a crime. And legally, Trump could have fired Mueller at any time if he had wanted to; but Trump never fired Mueller and allowed his investigation go unimpeded for almost two years.

Trump obstructed nothing, even being more co-operative than any other president in history by allowing his White House lawyer to be interrogated by the FBI for 30 hours, turning over all requested documents, and having his entire administration co-operate as well. The only thing Trump didn't do was to allow Muller's team to question him in person, because of the perjury traps they used to indict others.

It also became clear that Mueller did not lead the investigation or write the report. It was most likely Mueller's "Pit Bull" Andrew Weissmann, who has one of the most horrible and dishonest reputations in the entire legal system.

During the hearing Mueller seemed incapable of remembering anything (or claimed to not remember or have any knowledge), and he did not offer any comments on the origin of his "investigation" (aka Russian hoax) or the Steele dossier --- making Mueller guilty of obstruction of justice: Obstruction by omission.

We also noticed Democrats conflating what Trump said about a "Russian Hoax". Trump wasn't referring to the probe of Russia trying to interfere in elections to cause political chaos in the U.S.; Trump meant the probe of his "collusion" with Russia to rig the 2016 election was a hoax. (But the Democrats know that, they're just very dishonest.)

But in the end, the stubborn and delusional Democrats (and MSNBC) will cling to their obsession of impeaching Trump and putting him in prison for the rest of his life ... while totally ignoring the corruption within the DOJ and FBI (who loved Clinton and hated Trump).

And finally, Mark Levin thinks Rod Rosenstein should be investigated for appointing a man (Mueller) with the onset of dementia to lead the investigation. It was cruel for the Democrats to use him in this way, while at the same time, praising him as a Vietnam war hero. Everyone is now saying, "It was sad to watch." Shame on the Democrats for putting America through this entire ordeal.

* SPECIAL NOTE: There's about as much chance of President Trump being indicted after leaving office in 2025 for obstructing the investigation of a crime that never happened (conspiracy) as there is of indicting Hillary Clinton for her treason and perjury. Wake up and get real Democrats!

The Russian Collusion Witch Hunt

In an interview of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange by Fox News Sean Hannity that aired on Jan. 3, 2016, Assange said he didn't get the hacked DNC and Podesta emails from the Russian government, as John Brennan of the CIA claimed. Brennan had lied under oath and spied on the Senate — and he also said Trump was a Russian spy and traitor. So how can you believe him?

But in 2018 Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals anyway (who can't be extradited to the U.S. for prosecution). So this was seen as mostly a symbolic gesture — maybe because Mueller didn't want the $34 million investigation of Trump to look like a TOTAL waste of time.

But after almost a 2-year investigation, on March 24, 2019 after the release of the Mueller report, President Trump was completely exonerated of any ties to Russian "collusion" -- but a partisan and bitter Mueller didn't exonerate Trump for obstruction of justice.

In his interview with Sean Hannity, Assange was asked: "So in other words, let me be clear ... Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?"

The Australian founder of the whistle-blowing website, who has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London [since 2012], responded: "That's correct. We’re unhappy that we felt that we needed to even say that it wasn’t a state party. Normally, we say nothing at all. We have a strong interest in protecting our sources, and so we never say anything about them, never ruling anyone in or anyone out. And so here, in order to prevent a distraction attack against our publications, we’ve had to come out and say ‘no, it’s not a state party". Stop trying to distract in that way and pay attention to the content of the publication."

Assange also revealed that WikiLeaks also received about three pages of information to do with the [Republican National Committee] and that Donald Trump [during the campaign], but it was already public somewhere else.

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan (who is a close associate of Assange), had dismissed the CIA's claims that Russia was the source of the emails as "bullshit". So the accounts by Murray and Assange had directly contradicted the story advanced by John Brennan's CIA.

On December 9, 2016, The Washington Post reported on a "secret assessment" by the CIA, which concluded that Russian intelligence hacked the Democratic National Committee's servers and that of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta, specifically to help Trump win the presidency.

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter. Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances. (*

* Besides the cable TV networks CNN and MSNBC, Jeff Bezo's Washington Post was instrumental in pushing this fake Russian-Gate / Russian Hoax conspiracy theory

Craig Murray said: "I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian . . . it's an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things. If what the CIA is saying is true, and the CIA’s statement refers to people who are known to be linked to the Russian state, they would have arrested someone if it was someone inside the United States. America has not been shy about arresting whistle-blowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”

Murray then revealed to Dailymail.com that he had flown to Washington DC for a secret hand-off with one of the sources in September. He said that he met an intermediary in a wooded area near a US university to retrieve a package. [Many had speculated, including Roger Stone, that it might have been the murdered DNC employee, Seth Rich.)

The Kremlin has also rejected the hacking accusations while Assange has also previously said the leaks were not linked to Russia.

The claims also drew a rebuke from Trump’s transition team, which said in a statement: "These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction."

Meanwhile then-President-elect Donald Trump called the CIA's assessment ridiculous and tweeted:

Trump tweet Dec. 12, 2016

Trump rejected the CIA's conclusion that Russia tried to interfere with the presidential election and blamed "very embarrassed" Democrats for the public release of the assessment. The Washington Post — with their supposed "sources" — first reported the CIA finding. It was most likely John Brennan himself.

"It's ridiculous," Trump said of the CIA's assessment. He added, however, that he does not necessarily oppose President Barack Obama's order for a review of campaign-season hacking. "If you're going to do that, I think you should not just say 'Russia'. You should say other countries also, and maybe other individuals."

The White House has said the probe would focus on any breaches by other countries, and past elections.

Intelligence assessments

Sources have told Reuters that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (James Clapper), which oversees the 17 agency-strong US intelligence community, has not embraced the CIA's assessment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, whose standards require it to make cases that can stand up in court, also declined to accept the CIA's analysis.

In an angry letter that was sent to ODNI chief James Clapper, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said he was “dismayed” that the top US intelligence official had not informed the panel of the CIA's analysis and the difference between its judgment and the FBI’s assessment:

"ODNI is not arguing that the agency (CIA) is wrong, only that they can't prove intent," one of the officials told the news agency. "Of course they can't, absent agents in on the decision-making in Moscow.” (The ODNI was formed after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.)

Thin Reed

“[It was] a thin reed upon which to base an analytical judgment,” another official said in response to the speculation. He stressed that the “judgment based on the fact that Russian entities hacked both Democrats and Republicans and only the Democratic information was leaked.”

Republican Senator John McCain had then said there was "no information" that Russian hacking of US political organizations was aimed at influencing the election: "It's obvious that the Russians hacked into our campaigns," McCain said, "But there is no information that they were intending to affect the outcome of our election — and that's why we need a congressional investigation."

The late John McMain was later instrumental in getting a fake Russian dossier on Trump spread to the media that contained false pornographic accusations.

Daily briefings

Trump has said that he is not interested in getting daily intelligence briefings [just a concise briefing of the briefing], an unprecedented rejection of the nation's massive and sophisticated intelligence apparatus. Those remarks came as Never-Trump Republicans (like John McCain) joined Democrats in demanding a bi-partisan investigation into the Kremlin's activities and questioned consideration of Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson — who has close business ties with Moscow — as head of the State Department [and who Trump later fired for being incompatible with his foreign relations agenda.]

When asked on Fox News Sunday by the Never-Trumper Chris Wallace whether he is rejecting valuable intelligence, Trump was defiant: "I get it when I need it," he said of the top-secret briefings sessions, adding that he is leaving it up to the briefers to decide when a development represents a "change" big enough to notify him. "I don't have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years."

The CIA/John Brennan said it has concluded with "high confidence" that Russia sought to influence the US election on behalf of Trump [A BIG FAT FRIGGING LIE!]. The finding alarmed legislators, including Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, who said he planned to put Senator Lindsay Graham, then, a very staunch critic of Trump, in charge of investigating the claim. He said: "The Russians didn't tell Clinton to ignore Wisconsin and Michigan," two states she was expected to win, that went instead for Trump.

Then-RNC chair Reince Priebus said Trump's win "had nothing to do with the Russians. She lost the election because her ideas were bad. She didn't fit the electorate. She ignored states that she shouldn't have and Donald Trump was the change agent." And he still is, bigger and better than anyone would have guessed.

The 17 agencies of the U.S. intelligence community

Click to enlarge
James Clapper, John Brennan, Robert Mueller, James Comey

* The CIA, NSA, FBI, DNI and DIA are the 5 major ones we usually think about and would most likely investigate Russian "collusion".

1. Office of the Director of National Intelligence: Created by Congress in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the office coordinates intelligence collection and sharing among U.S. intelligence agencies. The director is the head of the intelligence community and the principal advisor to the president, National Security Council and Homeland Security Council on intelligence matters related to national security.

2.Central Intelligence Agency: The CIA is the most recognized intelligence agency, known for spying on foreign governments and conducting covert operations, including funneling money to opposition groups in other countries to sway elections or oust certain foreign leaders.

3. National Security Agency: Once so secret it was referred to as "No Such Agency," the NSA is the largest and perhaps most technologically sophisticated of all the intelligence agencies. It focuses on signals intelligence — monitoring, collecting and processing communications and other electronic information — and cracking secret codes. It also protects U.S. information systems from outside penetration. The NSA oversees PRISM and other mass surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013. It is believed to employ more mathematicians than any other organization in
the country — a fact not all math whizzes are happy about.

4. Defense Intelligence Agency: The Pentagon's top spy agency, the DIA is the primary entity responsible for collecting and analyzing intelligence on foreign militaries, with support from the intelligence offices of all the military branches. The DIA shares this information with military leaders, fighters and defense policy makers in order to "prevent and decisively win wars," according to its mission statement.

5. Federal Bureau of Investigation: The FBI has both law enforcement and intelligence functions. On the intelligence side, it aims to protect the U.S. against terrorism, cyberattacks and foreign intelligence operations and espionage. It maintains the government's terrorist watch list and has been involved in the interrogation of "high-value" detainees, sometimes clashing with the CIA.

6. Department of State - Bureau of Intelligence and Research: This bureau collects and analyzes intelligence on global affairs and advises the secretary of State and other diplomats. It conducts foreign opinion polls and tracks and analyzes issues that may undermine U.S. foreign policy objectives, such as weapons proliferation, human trafficking and drug smuggling. Though it's one of the smallest intelligence agencies, its assessment on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was not as inaccurate as that of other agencies.

7. Department of Homeland Security – Office of Intelligence and Analysis: The scope of "homeland security" includes emergency preparedness, border control, transportation security and biodefense (Ebola and SARS, for example), among other issues. The Office of Intelligence and Analysis is charged with gathering intelligence in these areas and sharing it with state, local, tribal, territorial and private sector partners through a network of "fusion centers."

8. Drug Enforcement Administration – Office of National Security Intelligence: The DEA is the government's watch guard for drugs that are illegally manufactured, distributed or dispensed. It is also responsible for the seizure and forfeiture of assets connected with illicit drug trafficking. The Office of National Security Intelligence assists law enforcement with investigations and prosecutions. Most recently it has focused on the threat posed by a surge in heroin and counterfeit prescription pills containing fentanyl.

9. Department of the Treasury – Office of Intelligence and Analysis: Intelligence gathering at the Treasury dates back to its beginning, when Secretary Alexander Hamilton sent a tax official in disguise to investigate the "whiskey rebellion" underway in western Pennsylvania. Today the Office of Intelligence and Analysis sits within the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, which works to prevent sanctioned countries, money launderers, terrorists, drug kingpins and purveyors of weapons of mass destruction from parking or moving their money through the U.S. financial system.

10. Department of Energy – Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence: Even the Department of Energy has an intelligence office. It traces its origin to the Manhattan Project, when the Atomic Energy Commission was charged with analyzing the Soviet Union's atomic weapons program. Today the office's role is to provide technical intelligence on foreign nuclear weapons, energy security, science and technology, and nuclear energy, safety and waste.

11. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency: Supporting the Defense Department, this agency is the principal provider of geospatial intelligence – analysis and information about Earth's natural and man-made features and geo-tagged activities. This "GEOINT" is used for combat, humanitarian and disaster relief, border and transportation security and security planning for special events. One of the agency's claims to fame is pinpointing the Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound where Osama bin Laden was hiding; another is operating the reference system for GPS.

12. National Reconnaissance Office: The NRO was a secret agency for 31 years, until its existence was declassified in 1992. The office designs, builds and operates the nation's reconnaissance satellites, providing the Pentagon, CIA and others precision navigation, early warning of missile launches and near real-time imagery to support anti-terrorism activities. On the civilian side, the satellites help survey damage from natural disasters and support environmental research.

13. Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance: The Air Force's intelligence branch, organized into the 25th Air Force, uses airplanes, drones and satellites to identify hideouts, bunkers, mobile launchers and weapons caches. It is also responsible for code-breaking activities within the Air Force. All that surveillance takes up a lot of digital space – in 2013, one wing alone received 20 terabytes of data daily, processed 460,000 hours of video and disseminated 2.6 million images.

14. Army Military Intelligence: The Army's intelligence branch intercepts electronic communications and provides maps, ground imagery and information on foreign forces to assist fighters in the battlefield.

15. Office of Naval Intelligence: The Navy's intelligence branch keeps tabs on foreign scientific and technological research, analyzes the structure, tactics and readiness of foreign naval forces, and tracks merchant shipping to identify illicit activity.

16. Marine Corps Intelligence: The Marine Corps' intelligence officers create military maps, intercept and translate radio and electronic signals, analyze images collected from sensors and carry out counterintelligence.

17. Coast Guard Intelligence: The Coast Guard, part of the military and the Department of Homeland Security, protects and defends more than 100,000 miles of coastline and inland waterways. On an average day, the Coast Guard conducts 45 search-and-rescue cases, seizes 874 pounds of cocaine, interdicts 17 migrants and helps move $8.7 billion worth of goods, according to its website. Its intelligence office helps with criminal investigations and provides other national agencies with intelligence from domestic and foreign ports, coastal waters and offshore.

President Trump's historic speech at CPAC 2019

President Trump CPAC 2019

President Trump gave his longest and best speech ever at #CPAC2019 (Conservative Political Action Conference) on March 3,2019 in National Harbor, MD. At his rallies and other events, his speeches usually last about 70 minutes (twice as long as any by Hillary Clinton). But Trump's speech at CPAC lasted 2 hours and 2 minutes.

Trump's speech aired LIVE on Fox News, C-SPAN and #RSBN; but not on CNN and MSNBC — probably because they wanted to edit his words out of context, then air short sound-bites later as propaganda for their viewers. #FakeNews!

Because his speech was so long, it was edited and organized by content and split up into 14 separate videos for easier viewing. Mostly, just long applauds were edited out for length.

► Play ▌▌ Pause ■ Stop

In 2016 I transitioned from Bernie Sanders (who was running as a Democrat) to Donald Trump (who ran as a Republican). But I don't trust either party.

For numerous reasons, many of my previous blog posts will contradict how I now feel . . . because I have "evolved" . . . but if Trump kills Social Security and Medicare, I will evolve again.

I have been very busy re-arranging my life and moving these last few months, so I haven't posted here very often; but who knows, maybe soon one day I'll get back on track and begin posting every day again. But much shorter versions of my current daily rants can be found on my Twitter feed >>> https://twitter.com/BudMeyers99

Median wage earners (half of all workers in America) will save a measly 20 bucks a week (or less) with the new GOP tax plan.

Turning 18 years old in America during the Trump Era

If Trump and the Republicans raised the minimum wage, they'd make 8 years of Obama look like a waste of time for the working-class.
