Thought control has profound consequences, often unintentional.
“At the same time, Beijing is tightening ideological control in all aspects of life, including on university campuses, and demanding that the party line be strictly adhered to. Any unauthorized discussion of government policies can result in a reprimand for “improper discussion of a party directive”.
That has left Chinese advisers and Western diplomats worried about whether their suggestions will be filtered before they reach top-level officials, to ensure they are politically correct.
A former US official who frequently travels to China said Chinese advisers and officials who had previously been outspoken had become extremely tight-lipped, even in unofficial and private talks.
“It’s more difficult to know what they are thinking as they are just repeating the government and party rhetoric,” the former official said. “This will lead to a higher risk of wrong decisions, even fatal mistakes.”
Who is Mueller? I found this to be both fascinating and a quick read. YMMV.
Pg 4 ”But it was part of a pattern that eventually became quite clear that Mueller was more concerned with convicting and putting people in jail he disliked, even if they were innocent of the charges, than he was with ferreting out the truth.”
Pg 10 ” FBI News Why indeed it does sound familiar. My only question, why 7 am and not the usual 2am jack booted thump, SWAT gear paraphernalia? > “Though the WND article blamed the Clintons and Sandy Berger for orchestrating the FBI “hit job,” we can’t lose sight of the fact that the head of the FBI at the time was Robert Mueller. Please understand what former FBI officials have told me: the FBI would NEVER go after a member of Congress, House or Senate, without the full disclosure to and blessing of the FBI Director. Even if the idea on how to silence Curt Weldon did not come from Director Mueller himself, it surely had his blessing and encouragement, though and, at best, his silence and inaction. > > The early morning raid by Mueller’s FBI with all the media outside, obviously alerted by the FBI, had achieved its goal of colluding to abuse the federal justice system to silence Curt Weldon by ending his political career. Mueller’s FBI worked it like a charm. If the Clintons and Berger manipulated Weldon’s reelection to assure his defeat, they did it with the artful aid of Mueller, all while George W. Bush was President. Is any of this sounding familiar?”
Pg 21 “If you wonder what happened to the valuable FBI agent who was an upstanding whistleblower with a conscience, you should know that in Mueller’s FBI, Special Agent Joy was terribly mistreated. Orders came down from on high that he was not to participate in any criminal investigation again, which is the FBI management’s way of forcing an agent out of the FBI. On the other hand, the FBI agent who was said to have manufactured evidence against Senator Stevens while hiding evidence of his innocence was treated wonderfully and continued to work important criminal cases for Director Mueller.”
Pg 47 FBI>> Time to disband and completely reorganize FBI too. “The widespread abuse of the FISA-authorized court, FISC, was laid bare in a court memorandum of review of these abuses that was declassified in 2017 that went virtually unnoticed by the media because it didn’t fit their narrative. https://www.dni.gov/files/documents/icotr/51117/2016_Cert_FISC_Memo_Opin_Order_Apr_2017.pdfThese are serious crimes that, left unchecked, lead nations down the path to tyranny at the hands of people who think they know better than we do what is best for us. It’s an age-old struggle America’s Founding Fathers knew well and did everything they could to keep us from experiencing. The FISC judges themselves have a duty to police their own courts and call to account these bad actors who, by all facts in the documentation I’ve personally seen, have committed a fraud upon the court. If these judges do not have the integrity to self-police in this matter, we in Congress must hold them accountable. using the power granted to us in the Constitution, Congress has created every single federal court in the country except the Supreme Court. We have the duty to phase out, then disband the FISC, while developing a better solution to address the authorization of this sort of surveillance of foreign agents and actors. We have got to clean up the mess that the Obama administration showed is far too easy to create.” https://1zwchz1jbsr61f1c4mgf0abl-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Gohmert_Mueller_UNMASKED.pdf
I remember the hysteria and self assured predictions. Never let these people near anything important, like my family. Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks: “In the event Donald wins, I have no doubt in my mind the market tanks.”

“According to Ezra Levant of Rebel Media, who was present at the hearing, the only condition of Robinson’s release is that he attend any re-hearing of his Leeds contempt case.” https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/08/breaking-tommy-robinson-freed-after-winning-appeal/
Modern day incarceration in a first world prison. Club Gitmo could take some pointers.
“They moved me from HMP Hull, which was a 7 percent Muslim population, to the most densely Muslim-populated prison in the country,” he claimed.
“I had threats every day… I couldn’t have my cell windows open because they would be spat through or shit put through, so I had my windows shut all the time,” he said, describing how he struggled with the recent heat wave as a result.”
@ Schroedinger’s Cat “Tommy Robinson was deliberately put in the UK prison with the largest Muslim population. The result was that excrement and saliva were put through his window which was purposely chosen to be on the ground floor and directly next to the prison mosque. The prison cooks were Muslim convicts who also laced his food with excrement, leaving him to survive in jail upon one tin of tuna a day.
In consequence, he lost two stone in weight in two months.
Leaving aside the issue of whether or not due legal process had brought about this situation, this is manifestly the worst human rights abuse that one could perpetrate upon a prisoner outside of wartime.
Responsible for this abuse are the following UK officials. All need to be removed from their posts with immediate effect and put on trial:
Theresa May: Prime Minister, previously Home Secretary which has close ralations with Justice Department
David Gauke: Lord Chancellor, also Secretary of State for Justice (He once said that paying tradesmen in cash for the purposes of evading tax is morally wrong – yet could allow the above to happen.)
Rory Stewart: Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Prison operations
Michael Spurr: CEO of Her Majesty’s Prison Service (HMPPS)
The above clearly have no ethical standards whatsoever and might be more at home running the equivalent state services in Communist China.”
The MSMs know the Trumpster is correct.
President Donald Trump taunted (predicted is the word I would use) media outlets on Tuesday, predicting their ratings would crash after he left office.
“I enjoy watching,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!”
