Tucker Carlson on Mueller Probe Conclusion: ‘The People on TV Have Been Lying to You’


Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson reacted to reports that Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller was submitting his the probe’s report to Attorney General William Barr, which signified the conclusion of the probe’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Given there were no indictments tied to alleged collusion between 2016 Trump campaign officials and the Russian government, Carlson concluded the many had been misled by some who have taken to television to make claims of Trump-Russia collusion.

“The people on TV have been lying to you,” Carlson said. “They will deny it now. They will tell you it was always about Trump’s taxes or some foreign real estate deal or hush money he paid to a girlfriend. That’s a crock. This investigation was always from day one about collusion with Russia. About betraying this country. They told us that for years.”

FORWARD by Bob Barney:As a small manufacturer trying to compete against the giants out there that rape their customers with out of this world pricing,I see ruff times ahead for companies like ours. We don't have the millions, to buy off Congress, city officials and other government agencies and I think the dems in Congress will really go after small business like Jimmy Carter did. I think most forgot, or never knew how many small businesses were regulated out of business by Carter. It's bribery. The big companies pay the bribes, and the politicians pay them back with selective regulations designed to put the little guy out of business.


Vibrant competition is absolutely essential in order for a capitalist economic system to function effectively. 

Unfortunately, in the United States today we are witnessing the death of competition in industry after industry as the biggest corporations increasingly gobble up all of their competitors.  John D. Rockefeller famously once said that “competition is a sin”, and he was one of America’s very first oligopolists.  According to Google, an oligopoly is “a state of limited competition, in which a market is shared by a small number of producers or sellers”, and that is a perfect description of the current state of affairs in many major industries.  In early America, corporations were greatly limited in scope, and in most instances they were only supposed to exist temporarily.  But today the largest corporations have become so huge that they literally dominate our entire society, and that is not good for any of us.

Just look at what is happening in the airline industry.  When I was growing up, there were literally dozens of airlines, but now four major corporations control everything and they have been making gigantic profits….  MORE


Amid government shutdown, Kia and Hyundai issue recall on cars that may randomly catch fire

Photo via YouTube

For months, the consumer advocacy group the Center for Auto Safety has petitioned Kia and Hyundai to recall a total of 2.9 million cars that it says are at risk of catching fire while on the road.

Instead, the brands on Wednesday announced that they would recall 168,000 cars over concerns that an engine problem may cause non-collision fires. The recall is taking place while the partial government shutdown is underway, meaning that most officials working for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) aren’t working and are unable to oversee the recall.  

"This is the exact scenario where you should have safety and enforcement people coming in and doing their jobs," Center for Auto Safety President Jason Levine said in a statement.

1Countless people, including a former federal prosecutor, seem oblivious to one of the greatest abuses, outrages, and tragedies of our criminal justice system: innocent people are forced to plead guilty every day.

Indeed, the Innocence Project alone has exonerated 31 people who spent a combined 150 years in prison on guilty pleas. That is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

This horrific injustice is solely attributable to the unchecked power of prosecutors who now function as prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner. They have unfettered discretion, no supervision, no limits, and most federal judges defer to them at every turn.   MORE

There are two judges who I know do not simply defer. One is Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, the judicial hero of my book who will preside tomorrow over the proceedings against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

AMERICANS RESIST: 1+ Million Gun Owners Refuse to Obey Ban, No One Turning in Magazines

By Matt Agorist

New Jersey — Unless you’ve been under a rock lately, then you’ve likely seen the unprecedented push by all levels of government to separate law abiding Americans from their guns. No, this is not some conspiracy theory. The president himself ushered in a new level of gun control doing what his liberal predecessor even refused to do by banning bump stocks. However, as states across the country seek to limit the ability of innocent people to defend themselves, people are disobeying.

In May, Gov. Phil Murphy signed a law that reduced the maximum capacity of ammunition magazines from 15 rounds to 10. Citizens immediately sued the government, citing the unconstitutional nature of the ban, but they failed.

“New Jersey’s law reasonably fits the State’s interest in public safety and does not unconstitutionally burden the Second Amendment’s right to self-defense in the home,” the court wrote in their decision. “The law also does not violate the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause because it does not require gun owners to surrender their magazines but instead allows them to retain modified magazines or register firearms that have magazines that cannot be modified.”    Read More

FDA Acquiring ‘Fresh’ Aborted Baby Parts to Make Mice With Human Immune Systems

1( - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration signed a new contract on July 25 to acquire “fresh” human fetal tissue to transplant into “humanized mice” so that these mice will have a functioning “human immune system,” according to information published by the FDA and the General Services Administration. 

“The objective is to acquire Tissue for Humanized Mice,” said a June 13 FDA “presolicitation notice” for the contract.

The contractor, the notice said, would “provide the human fetal tissue needed to continue the ongoing research being led by FDA.

“Fresh human tissues are required,” said the notice, “for implantation into severely immune-compromised mice to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system.”    MORE

 The news that the FBI fired Peter Strzok broke yesterday, and with that we can begin to see big-picture truth take shape about the bureau’s role in the Hillary Clinton investigation as well as the Russia investigation.

It does not look good for the leadership at the FBI. 2016 did not bring out the best in them.

Director James Comey was fired, as was Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and now Strzok, an FBI senior counterintelligence agent, has been terminated after being demoted earlier. He was a lead investigator on the probe into Clinton’s email server in 2016 before moving on to Mueller’s team.

How Smart TVs in Millions of U.S. Homes Track More Than What’s on Tonight

1The growing concern over online data and user privacy has been focused on tech giants like Facebook and devices like smartphones. But people’s data is also increasingly being vacuumed right out of their living rooms via their televisions, sometimes without their knowledge.

In recent years, data companies have harnessed new technology to immediately identify what people are watching on internet-connected TVs, then using that information to send targeted advertisements to other devices in their homes. Marketers, forever hungry to get their products in front of the people most likely to buy them, have eagerly embraced such practices. But the companies watching what people watch have also faced scrutiny from regulators and privacy advocates over how transparent they are being with users.17

Once enabled, Samba TV can track nearly everything that appears on the TV on a second-by-second basis, essentially reading pixels to identify network shows and ads, as well as programs on Netflix and HBO and even video games played on the TV. Samba TV has even offered advertisers the ability to base their targeting on whether people watch conservative or liberal media outlets and which party’s presidential debate they watched.

The big draw for advertisers — which have included Citi and JetBlue in the past, and now Expedia — is that Samba TV can also identify other devices in the home that share the TV’s internet connection.


California doctor critical of vaccines is punished for exempting 2-year-old boy from all childhood immunizations

Vaccines are full of toxins, heavy metals, ABORTED BABY parts and disease! Yet doctors must administer in Communist-California--- SOURCE

2In a decision that could signal how California’s fierce vaccine debates will play out in the coming years, the Medical Board of California has ordered 35 months’ probation for Dr. Bob Sears, an Orange County pediatrician well-known for being sympathetic to parents opposed to vaccines.

In 2016, the board threatened to revoke Sears’ medical license for wrongly writing a doctor’s note for a 2-year-old boy that exempted him from all childhood vaccinations. This week, the medical board settled on a lesser punishment.

Sears can keep practicing medicine but will be required to take 40 hours of medical education courses a year, as well as an ethics class, and also be monitored by a fellow doctor. He also must notify all hospital and medical facilities where he practices of the order and is not allowed to supervise physician assistants or nurse practicioners.

The doctor’s supporters expressed relief that he was not more severely punished, while critics were pleased that the state did more than simply reprimand him, as some had feared.  MORE

Don't be surprised to find that the FBI had spies in Hillary's Campaign too!

image from     Many of my Trump supporting friends are not going to like this opinion piece, but I will wager today, that within a year or two, if not even sooner, we are going to learn that the Deep State was also monitoring Hillary's campaign as well.  One of my beefs with Fox News and the pro-Trumper movement is that they are too easily distracted by fake news, only to look stupid when the main stream media (MSM) proves the opposite of what they were reporting before.  It is not plausible for me to believe that the Deep State and justice department was not spying on the Clinton campaign as well as Trump's, and here is why:

I have never heard a rational explanation why the pro-Hillary FBI director James Comey came out last summer and announced that Hillary broke the law and there was an ongoing investigation.   If he truly wanted Hillary to win, why did he do this?  Remember, at the time it was the liberals in the media and Congress that was demanding Loretta Lynch to fire Comey!   What happened to this story?   Read on...

Did Bill Clinton summon Loretta Lynch or was it the other way around? 

image from     Much has been made of the Bill Clinton/Loretta Lynch meeting on the tarmac in Arizona, with most thinking it was Bill Clinton who arranged the meeting and was pressuring Lynch - But could it have been the other way around?  Did the FBI and Justice department have spies in the the Clinton campaign reporting back that Hillary was going to wipe the Obama-ites out of her cabinet, and that they wanted the Clinton's to know that they were not going to tolerate her running off the plantation?  Was the threat made to Bill, by Loretta, instead of the other way around?  I think so.

     Many readers may not realize that although the Deep state wanted a Clinton presidency, they did not want it at the expense of their power!  Comey's message about the Clinton investigation was a threat to Hillary and company to get back on the reservation, or she would be hurting.  They were never fearful of a Trump win, as they thought at the time that it was an impossibility.  All they wanted was Clinton to get scared!   Everything backfired when they realized by the fall that Trump might win.  That's when Comey and company, along with the justice department ratcheted up their spying on Trump as an insurance policy.

The Deep State is bigger than the Clintons:

       This may come as a surprise to you, but the Deep State, which is comprised of the CIA, NSA, FBI, Justice department, the Fortune 100 companies, billionaires, and the media are bigger than the Clinton cartel and MORE DANGEROUS!  The Deep State has as many Republicans in it as Democrats.  People like John McCain, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have more in common with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama than they do with you and me - and yes Donald Trump.

     In the fall of 2016, I believe God entered the scene and corrupted the Deep State's ability to do what they do. That is concentrate total control over the world's population into their very small group of members.

Deep State Victims:

image from     Trump advisor, Roger Stone's book The Man Who Killed Kennedy – The Case Against LBJ destroys the official narrative as it lays out how Vice President Lyndon Johnson, with the assistance of the Central Intelligence Agency, the mob and Big Texas Oil, orchestrated the murder of our 37th President.We know that Lyndon Johnson’s “strong right arm” Bobby Baker, the Secretary of the Senate, told a Kennedy associate “John Kennedy will not live out his term and will die a violent death” during a freezing cold Inauguration Day blizzard in 1961. 

Richard Nixon thought Lyndon Johnson killed John F. Kennedy, according to legendary political operative Roger Stone.  “Richard Nixon told me in 1982 that he immediately knew who Jack Ruby was when he saw him shoot Oswald,” Stone told The Daily Caller in an extensive interview.    Stone makes the compelling case that General Alexander Haig orchestrated Nixon’s removal from office in a coup d’état and brokered the deal for his pardon. Finally the public will learn what is on the 18 ½ minute gap in the White House Tapes.

Stone, a Washington Insider for forty years, outlines why FBI Man Mark Felt is not deep throat ( a position that I have taken for over 30 years- there was NEVER a DEEP THROAT) , why there is no deep throat, and why Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein lie about it even today. Stone reveals how Nixon used the dark secrets he knew to avoid prosecution by blackmailing Gerald Ford for a full, free and unconditional pardon. Nixon’s secret would not only destroy his presidency—it would save him from prison and allow him to launch his final comeback—advising President Bill Clinton on Foreign Affairs despite Hillary’s attempts to block him and her being fired from the 1974 House Impeachment Committee for lying and violating Nixon’s rights.

image from     As for the Reagan shooting, why did George H.W. Bush and his cabinet determine that John W. Hinckley Jr. — the man who in 1981 tried to kill the newly inaugurated President Ronald Reagan — was a lone nut, and no conspiracy, foreign or domestic, was involved? How did they arrive at this conclusion just five hours after the shooting, without any thorough examination? Why won’t the Federal Bureau of Investigation release its documents on the shooter?

     I bet you did not know that NBC's John Chancellor, eyebrows raised, informed the viewers of NBC Nightly News that the brother of the man who tried to kill the president was acquainted with the son of the man who would have become president if the attack had been successful!   As a matter of fact, Chancellor said in a bewildered tone, Scott Hinckley and Neil Bush had been scheduled to have dinner together at the home of the vice president's son the very next night. And, of course, the engagement had been canceled. . . 

     In conclusion, I predict that it will come out that the FBI was also spying on Clinton.  It will help the Deep State convince you and me that they were equally watch both campaign's for Russian collusion. A BOLD FACED LIE, but Fox and Trump supporter will have egg on their face, and the majority will be relieved that the FBI was there to protect us from the enemy!  Time will tell.  

Shooting Survivors Thank Trump For ‘Leadership’

Contrary to MSM Fake News on the school shootings, most students don't agree with those speaking up against Trump and NRA - they just don't get the coverage...

Survivors and families affected by school shootings gathered at the White House Wednesday to speak with President Trump.

Trump gathered the families and students in the State Dining Room at the White House and listened as participants took turns on the microphone. Students at Stoneman Douglas High School have been at the forefront of the gun debate, with some criticizing Trump and Republicans for not doing enough to stop school shootings.

However, at the White House Wednesday, criticism was non-existent for the president.

One student, Jonathan, told Trump, “Thank you for everything. You’ve done a great job. I like the direction you’re going in.”   MORE

The mainstream liars in the press, supported by Russians and Soros, are trying hard to convince us that the AR-15 is an assault weapon and the 2nd Amendment must be abolished.  Reading the liberal Daily Mail today, seem that most responders aren't buying it!

The comments below have not been moderated. 


Not familiar with the Geneva convention and why the 5.56 round is used. It is designed to maim, not kill. To many people just making cr@p up

Pathetic publicly stunt. Switzerland has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. At 18, every male in the country is given a fully automatic assault rifle. Go figure...


I'd argue that my semi auto shotgun with a 30 round drum would have been far more deadly in the schools hallways/rooms



When I was in HS in metro ATL, we could have a shotgun or rifle in our vehicles. It wasn't uncommon to a shotgun in the back window of a truck in the Senior parking lot. This was late 80s/early 90s. I don't remember one single gun issue. 


If we were 18yo I should have said..... since I am an expert on everything 


Well of course they are designed to kill people, in battle.




Oh no someone used a van to mow down 20 people on the sidewalk, I had better drive my jeep off a cliff in response 



I'd rather hear from the 19 year olds in the armed forces who depend on guns!


So that's the bottom line is it. You all live in fear and need to ensure that "my gun is bigger than yours" just in case. Pathetic on a national scale. 


We don¿t need assault rifles or bump stocks , and if you¿re responsible you would teach your child how to be responsible with guns , I grew up in country we had guns they were kept in my dads closet, no one would go in get any of them take to school wouldn¿t have dreamt of it , they were for hunting, oh yeah they were just rifles not assault weapons


They¿re not ¿assault¿ rifles or weapons. Do some research. 


Just another grandstander. It's been so frustrating for him that he couldn't join #meToo..

Judge drops all charges against Cliven Bundy and his sons

A judge in Las Vegas on Monday dismissed criminal charges against a Nevada rancher and his sons accused of leading an armed uprising against federal authorities in 2014.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro signaled when she declared a mistrial last month that she might dismiss the case outright against 71-year-old Cliven Bundy, sons Ryan and Ammon Bundy, and Montana militia leader Ryan Payne.

The judge severely criticized prosecutors for willfully violating the due process rights of the defendants, including failing to properly turn over evidence to their lawyer.

REPORT: Fed Agency Committed ‘Militaristic’ Operation Against Nevada Rancher

image from cdn01.dailycaller.comAn investigation into the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) handling of the 2014 Nevada standoff with rancher Cliven Bundy revealed “incredible bias,” widespread misconduct and likely illegal actions by the BLM.

Prosecutors shared the report with the Bundys’ defense attorneys, prompting a petition to Judge Gloria Navarro for a mistrial, or for the case to be dismissed altogether, The Oregonian reports. Navarro’s judgement is expected to come down Wednesday.

“It’s time for our men to go home and start making a living for their families,” Carol Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s wife, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We’re two years behind. We’ve got a lot of catching up to do.”

The investigation’s report, made by BLM Special Agent Larry Wooten and addressed to the Department of Justice, was publicized last week after Washington state Rep. Matt Shea posted it on his Facebook page, according to The Wall Street Journal.   MORE

FBI Hiding Truth about Vegas Shooter?

EACH Box Mailed by AMAZON Gets $1.46 Govt Subsidy


image from karenknowsbest.comI know a secret about the federal government’s relationship with Amazon: The U.S. Postal Service delivers the company’s boxes well below its own costs. Like an accelerant added to a fire, this subsidy is speeding up the collapse of traditional retailers in the U.S. and providing an unfair advantage for Amazon.

This arrangement is an underappreciated accident of history. The post office has long had a legal monopoly to deliver first-class mail, or nonurgent letters. The exclusivity comes with a universal-service obligation—to provide for all Americans at uniform price and quality. This communication service helps knit this vast country together, and it’s the why the Postal Service exists.

In 2001 the quantity of first-class mail in the U.S. began to decline thanks to the internet. Today it is down 40% from its peak levels, according to Postal Service data. But though there are fewer letters to put into each mailbox, the Postal Service still visits 150 million residences and businesses daily. With less traditional mail to deliver, the service has filled its spare capacity by delivering more boxes.

Other companies, such as UPS and FedEx , compete with the Postal Service to deliver packages. Lawmakers, to their credit, wanted a level playing field between the post office and its private competitors. The 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act made it illegal for the Postal Service to price parcel delivery below its cost.

I knew about the CIA and Everything Being Revealed Today YEARS AGO!

By Bob Barney

Yes, as many in the media now seem to be surprised about just what our CIA and other Federal agencies have been up to, I have known for years just how evil this government can be.  We like to think of ourselves as the "city on the hill" people (and for the most part our citizens are just that) but for a long time now, our Federal Gorvernment has been OUR ENEMY!  Not Russia, not China, NOT VIETNAM - but our hidden shadow government!  It wasn't the Chinese that tried to force my company out of business in 2006.  It was state and local government agencies acting more like the gestapo than what they claimed to be. Fire Marshall's have unlimited power to shut you down - even if they are on the take and are corrupt.   Our paint plant was recently visited by the DEQ, Fire marshall, Osha (which has NO jurisdiction) and the city planning official ON THE SAME DAY and swore to God, they didn't know about each other coming!   Liars, cheats thieves, and enemies of the American people!  These bureaucrats want to shut down every small business in America because they hate us! They hate what we stand for- Americanism!  Americanism is the belief that the small guy can make it with hard work and freedom from tyranny.  OUR GOVERNMENT = TYRANNY, much more now, than when the British ruled us and we fought a war over it.  Our Bill of Rights have been trampled and covered with the shit of Uncle Sam!

NwoWhen Edward Snowden came forward to identify himself as the leaker of the National Security Agency spying programs, politicians and the media alike, from left to right have been working overtime to discredit the man who some actually view as a hero for revealing crucial information the government had kept secret. Apparently, if you think hiding information about spying on Americans is new, and that it took some 29 year-old nobody to reveal these secrets, then you are a part of the great silent majority of Americans who have kept themselves in the dark. The real problem is not that our government is spying on us, it is that this has been known to anyone with a micron of a brain since the 1970's! I am amazed at the fact that I could be Edward Snowden- and have never worked for the NSA, CIA or the United States Government!  In fact, I know of many more secrets than he has revealed, and have known many of them since the 1970's!

For example: I knew all of this (with links to the stories):

In the 1970's I knew that:

1   Kennedy had the President of South Vietnam assassinated because he was becoming a national patriot. President Johnson believed what Richard Nixon always knew: that the Kennedy White House did not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it because he was turning against USA policies that would eventually end up in the slaughter of some 60,000 young American drafted, and tens of thousands more maimed for life! It's part of the record. I know it from reading, not from working for Uncle Sam. Three weeks later, Kennedy fulfilled Jesus' prophecy: “Those who live by the sword, will die by the sword” when he himself was gunned down in Dallas. Oh, by the way, anyone with a brain that can connect three dots knows what and who was behind that....

WARNING: Trump’s EPA Secretary Will Have ‘16,000 Employees Working Against Him’

This is why the EPA needs to be gutted and 75% of all employees be let go! BAN THE NAZI-LIKE EPA- IRS and OSHA!

image from cdn01.dailycaller.comPALM SPRINGS, CALIF. — When likely EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt walks into his first day at the office, “He’ll have 16,000 employees working against him,” Sen. James Lankford told a large gathering of libertarian donors Saturday evening.

“And I expect a flood of lawsuits over everything he does.”

Pruitt, who has been nominated to lead the EPA by President Donald Trump, is the attorney general of Lankford’s state, Oklahoma. He has faced fierce opposition from the environmentalist left.

Lankford, who chairs the Senate Oversight Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care and Entitlements, was joined on stage by Sens. Mike Lee and Pat Toomey.

OSHA assailed for regulatory ‘overreach’ on family farms

image from


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) decision to enforce regulations on certain small farms amounts to “blatant overreach” that unfairly targets small farmers, a pair of Senate Republicans argues. 

Sens. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) are calling on the Labor Secretary Tom Perez to rescind OSHA guidance clarifying that the agency intends to enforce regulations on farms with less than 10 workers. 

For decades, Congress has inserted language in appropriations bills prohibiting OSHA – an arm of the Labor Department – from enforcing provisions of the 1976 Occupational Safety and Health Act at farming operations with 10 or fewer employees.
