Words that Haunt

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

Sir John Dalberg-Acton was a 19th Century English-Catholic historian. He is perhaps best known for the remark, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely…”

That is one of the greatest arguments for limited government, and governmental powers. Throughout time, Dalberg-Acton’s observations have proven true. No matter how well-intentioned men may be when they seek power, and especially political power, when that power has been given to them, it corrupts them in some way.

There must be something so insidiously delicious and seductive about power that men and women will forfeit honor and integrity once power has been vested in them. They will deny all manner of previous viewpoints they held and statements they have made. And, in the last four years, I have watched the DC Swamp jump through hoops to try to justify their apparent forfeiture of the beliefs that got them elected or appointed.

Therein lies the greatest danger to our Republic. The power in this country–by design, and after great sacrifice–was vested in the people of the United States. We are the source of power, and those who serve us are intended to answer to us.

At times we the people have vested greater power in the hands of Washington politicians and civil servants because of some catastrophe globally where we felt we needed to give them more authority, and to do it quickly.

That, in and of itself, is not an issue. Certainly, we would likely agree that after Pearl Harbor, the powers given to Congress and the President etc. were a necessary evil. 9/11 is another case where we empowered our President to wage war. That attack and threat was apparent to all of us.

What we did not really think through, however, was the fact we also gave our government the power to set up secret courts in order to obtain warrants to electronically spy on our countrymen. If each of those warrants had been properly sought, and no one’s rights had been violated, we the people would not be in turmoil over the last four years about what is now emerging factually as an abuse of power by the outgoing administration against the incoming administration.

Cover-ups and abuses abound. People will yell, they will shrilly deny, they will justify in the coming weeks in the Senate Hearings, and in the actions forthcoming related to the Durham criminal investigation. That’s natural. After all, we gave some very brazen and arrogant men and women power over us. They corrupted it, became corrupt–and now refuse to give the power back. The nectar of power and control over their fellow countrymen seems to have addicted them.

Sadly, something far more ominous is hanging over us relevant to Dalberg-Acton’s observation. During this pandemic, we–in order to save ourselves and others–gave almost complete authority to our state and federal governments. We felt we needed them to take control, and order us into actions that would be good for all. Hopefully history will record that our cessation of almost all of our First Amendment rights was warranted–that we did the right thing. We harmed the many to save the few.

What history will not record kindly is if our governments never give that power back. Even when the crisis abates, or disappears altogether, we are discovering that some state leaders and federal leaders are loath to relinquish the control they have over our entire future and security. Frankly, we are going to have to pry that power out of their tightly clenched fists. (Electorally)

You may be in a quandary about how this beneficent leader of your city or your state could turn into a dictatorial tyrant, hell-bent on forcing you to bend to their agenda and will–even if it destroys your life and livelihood. You may agree with them. I am aware of that.

Regrettably though, someone like me is going to eventually have to come to rescue you and our countrymen from the clutches of the new tyrant. You thought Covid-19 was a menace?! You thought it threatened your life?! It did.

But, my friends, we all had better wake up. Because in order to handle that biological menace, we created a new one: politicians with more power than they have EVER had over you. I am by nature an eternal optimist. In this matter though, I know history, and I know men. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Put every single one of those 5 freedoms I wrote about a few weeks ago back in place, before you no longer can. Ask the people of Venezuela if they expected what they got when Chavez died and the new elected fool took office. Ask the people of Hong Kong if they expected what happened to them yesterday.

The power rests with “we the people” and spread out through our whole society no one man or group can gain the monopoly on it. Hard to corrupt 350 million Americans of diverse background, races, ethnicities, education, careers, religions etc.

An unwieldy bunch, we Americans. Perhaps that is key as to why this nation has prospered for so long, and helped so many other nations to prosper.

Pry their little fingers loose–one control at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time until your freedoms are fully restored. You can do it. I may not have faith in bureaucrats, but I have always had faith in the American people.

A Warning from the Past–revisited

Published / by Lee Kessler / 1 Comment on A Warning from the Past–revisited

 “Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper.  Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle.  The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day. . . .  I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods & errors.” 

Attributed to Thomas Jefferson (June 11, 1807) – Principal author of the Declaration of Independence, 3rd, President of the United States from 1801 to 1809

Food for thought for today’s climate: What is “lying by omission?” And then ask yourself how devastating is it to you if the Press omits key facts that would allow you to properly evaluate?

You are the boss.

Dwarfed by the news of the Pandemic and the national shutdown, the last two weeks however have also seen monumental revelations concerning abuse of power and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, and Justice Departments from 2016 to the recent past.

Documents long sought under the rule of law–not anonymous sources making up and “leaking” whatever–have surfaced. The picture I and many have described and tried to help you see is now clear. In their own words in emails and texts, and even in their own handwriting, the proof of a plot, and the identities of the malevolent cast of characters are now visible for you to see.

You may writhe, and struggle, and deny and argue, but this data will be evidence–in my opinion–in courts of law in the coming months. Justice is sometimes slow, but eventually truth does out.

A mentor of mine in business was overheard telling one of his young proteges this: “The things that will hurt you most in life are the things you accept as true, but which are actually false.” One takes the lie, and begins to think, evaluate, and decide through the filter of the lie. And terrible consequences can ensue.

So, Director Comey, I watched you last year on national television brazenly and pridefully confess to actions which were part of a coup. You laughed, and thought you would get away with it. Except for that pesky little thing called the Law, you would have.

Now, as of last week, we know the back story. As I wrote in the novel “White King and the Doctor,” if you want to overturn a government, without a hot war and without being spotted as the subversive, you “persuade” the people of that country to do it themselves.

What is that back story then? A counter-intelligence operation which we would normally run against another country to covertly overthrow a government there, was turned against our own government. The goal? The overthrow of the President of the United States.

James Comey, you have a right to remain silent…

For those who need more info, look up “recent developments in the case of Michael Flynn.” If you don’t see it, bail from that news agency. You might try JusttheNews.com

Double Whammy

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

If you thought it was bad enough that you are stuck at home, without income, and uncertain about what your future holds, you may be about to be hit by a double whammy.

Anyone who has been using credit cards to survive the loss of income, and idleness–with increasing balances–may find themselves dealt with by the big banks. They are apparently concerned that you are accruing too much debt, and so they are planning–if not already doing–to lower your credit limit.

Of course that will be done “for your own good.” Realizing that you may be missing payments, they fully understand they are vulnerable to default credit cards etc. So, they are capping their exposure now. Is it legal? Sure. Is it smart business? From their point of view it is.

The problem is that what is happening to you is just the microcosm of what is or could be happening on the global level to the United States–on the macrocosm. That would be Central Banks dealing with nations themselves, just like US banks deal with you, their customers.

And, that takes us straight into the third book in the trilogy: “White King and the Battle of America: the Endgame.” This is not self-promotion. You reading this book, right now, will come down to self-preservation–yours.

I couldn’t be more sincere about this. While you are sheltering at home, get those books, and read them. You will see every aspect of that trilogy displayed today, only with you in the cast of characters. The prophetic books were published in 2007, 2010, and 2013 to prevent the very thing we are experiencing today.

No matter your politics, get into that third book. And, when you are making the journey in that book, pay special attention to the Dusty Owens character. For you may in fact be “Dusty Owens.”

None Dare Call It Sedition

Published / by Lee Kessler / 2 Comments on None Dare Call It Sedition

In information warfare, one of the tenets is the spreading of disinformation. And, one of the most effective tactics is misdirection of attention–get people to look away in another direction while you do something where they are not looking. It is known as a diversion–and in our current layman’s terms, a distraction.

No doubt all of us would agree that the Wuhan Virus, which is real, and the responses we have taken to it, are a distraction at an order of magnitude unheard of in our history. It is not hard to be distracted when you are locked down in your home, bombarded with bad news, cautions, threats, news 24/7, out of work, and afraid.

So, what have we missed while distracted? Quite a bit. To start with, the redacted footnotes from Inspector General Horowitz’s report on FISA abuse within the FBI are now–after months of demands–unredacted. They confirm what many knew, but you were vilified if you even discussed it. The new evidence confirms Russian meddling on behalf of the Clinton Campaign through the use of misinformation. The middlemen/buffers? Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele.

His further report on 19 additional FISA warrants where he discovered none were founded, and basically, in my words, that the court was misled, sheds a spotlight on one of the darkest, most dangerous activities begun and condoned by the previous Administration’s Justice Department, and FBI.

The newest material will likely pale in comparison to what Durham has uncovered so far. We do not know where his investigation will eventually end, but no doubt he is a bloodhound. The Attorney General has already indicated that the “deeply troubling” data he has seen so far, about meddling and interfering in the 2016 election campaign to destroy the candidacy of Donald J. Trump, is only prologue. He has intimated in the strongest way possible in recent interviews that as egregious as that was, it extended beyond the campaign and election into the Presidency itself. He has characterized it as “sabotage.” The intent? To overthrow a sitting President.

Friends, no matter your political party, or degree of emotionality you have for the various men and women who play in the swamp, YOU and YOU ALONE are the only ones who should oust a President. You do that by your ballot in the ballot box.

If anyone else attempts to do it, they are usurping your rights as a citizen of this country. Notice that when the national disgrace known as the Impeachment of President Trump (which followed the attempt to force him from office by the now-verifiable Russian Collusion Hoax, the Ukraine Hoax, and any other failed propaganda campaigns the American people have had to endure these last 3 years) failed, we suddenly had our attention directed to the Wuhan Virus.

The President himself was pre-occupied during his own Impeachment with his perception that a dangerous virus was about to arrive here. And while we were totally distracted–mesmerized by the foolishness in our Congress–he closed the border to anyone arriving from China.

Hoping we would not notice that the removal by Impeachment effort had failed, all guns trained on him then to accuse him of being racist and xenophobic for trying to stop travel from China.

And now, we are totally absorbed with our own survival. Distracted royally once again, and diverted from looking at the criminal investigations and their imminent findings, the next diversion is to turn your wrath on the President for the fact we had the virus at all, and that Americans died during it.

Adam Schiff has reared his ugly head again, and is beginning investigations to see if the President’s handling of the Corona Virus constitutes an Impeachable Offense. Flailing around, looking for anything he can find to attack, the stupidity and perfidy of the Washington swamp continues.

And, all of that, my friends, is the newest attempt to divert your attention from the real cause of all the turmoil we have been through these last 3.5 years. The cast of characters is the same. The attack lines have been diverse. But, it was all agreed to by elected and non-elected officials inside the previous Administration–whose influence extends into the current Administration as well.

This is not just harassment, in my opinion. This is not just “dirty tricks.” This is persecution. There is a word for it. I intend to use that word today. The word is Sedition. (Definition: Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state or lawful authority.)

The known cast of characters includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, former Counter Intelligence FBI agent Peter Strok, former British spy Christopher Steele, the Russian Intelligence disinformation crew, former Presidential Candidate Hilary Clinton, and the Clinton campaign who knew the file they commissioned was bogus. The FBI also knew it was, from the get-go. That is part of the new evidence. They knew, and they used it anyway–before and AFTER the election.

My point though is simply this. We are distracted for sure. Just don’t be so distracted that you dismiss the arduous, dangerous work that has led to new evidence, and which will lead to even more.

Someone wants you to rebel–legally or illegally, civilly or violently. Someone wants you to be “the patsy.” Hiding in the shadows they are trying to get you to do the dirty work. (If you really want to identify who they are, read my trilogy.)

Oh wait, I could be wrong. It may in fact be treason. (Definition: Violation of allegiance towards one’s country or sovereign, the betrayal of one’s country by purposely aiding its enemies.) Ahh, but we are not at war, right? So, our enemies can not be called that. They are to be called adversaries for legal purposes.

But, in the vernacular, I think you understand both terms. And, I think we have all been the victims of sedition and/or treason for 4 years.

If you have followed my blogs, you know I have been calling out Director John Brennan for some time–ever since I saw him on television in an interview where he looked directly into the camera and said, “Stay tuned Mr. President.” That was a direct threat to the President, and as an American citizen, I did not like it. I would have had the same reaction, by the way, if one had done that to President Obama, Bush, or Clinton. I am not talking about some talk-show host shooting off their mouth. I am talking about a person who has the power and wherewithal to do unthinkable deeds.

Read the Blog entitled, “The mysterious, missing, Mr. Mifsud” I believe for sure that John Brennan is the “TARGET” ( and I mean that in legal terms) of the Durhalm criminal investigation. I believe the man I call “the Bloodhound” is closing in.

So, some may have been distracted, Mr. Brennan. But “the Bloodhound” doesn’t appear to be one of them. Me either. “Stay tuned, Director Brennan, stay tuned.”

He Took the Bait

Published / by Lee Kessler / 2 Comments on He Took the Bait

By now, many of you have figured out that either there is something about this Wuhan Virus that we don’t know about–so sinister that it requires shutting down the total economy of the United States and other nations as well, risking a global economic depression--or that somebody with an agenda went fishing, hoping to reel in the President of the United States.

Personally, I suspect the latter. If you know anything about Donald Trump through the years, and have not just been brainwashed by media hype about him, you know he has had a reputation his whole life for being very compassionate. He is renowned for, before running for office, reading about some travail of an American citizen, or seeing something on the television about someone who was struggling, and contacting them directly to solve their problem.

Anyone who is actually watching the daily briefings on this crisis can see that he sincerely struggles with the death of any American. Two days ago, when Dr. Birx was answering a reporter’s question, she inserted into her answer–as she often does–a personal anecdote. She stated that she too had been personally effected when her granddaughter last week had a 105 degree temperature, and she, though a physician, could not go to her because of the strict policies, and her commitment to the country and to The Task Force.

The news reporter may not have had their eyes open, but the camera reveals things. The President was standing to her right, and behind her, and he was clearly surprised at her story. When the reporter challenged with his next question, the President’s attention was clearly still on Dr. Birx. “How is your grandson?” Once reassured that it was her grand-daughter and that she was OK, he returned his attention to the press conference.

Look up for yourself what he personally did when he heard that his friend, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, had been moved to intensive care in a London hospital two days ago.

He is also apparently a self-admitted bit of a germaphobe. He’s been accused unjustly of being just about every other kind of “phobe.” But, this is one he jokes about because he washed his hands constantly long before the Wuhan Virus reared its ugly head.

Those two ingredients–innate compassion, and high sensitivity to germ’s potential–became a sort of Achilles Heel. After 4 years of relentless hounding and frontal attacks, and the man still standing strong, his Achilles Heel had been found.

That made it easy for people (and you are going to have to ferret this out for yourself) to persuade him to literally turn off the entire economy in one stroke, send almost all Americans home from work, and force us into lockdown, afraid. The case I am sure was very compelling, backed up by “experts” out the wazoo, who caused the President to take even more drastic actions than he already had. He took the bait.

And, I believe that less than two weeks ago, he realized he had been ill-served and misled, and that the extremity of our actions would in the end perhaps save some lives, but it would destroy the economy for some months, if not years. It could destroy the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of people.

When I heard him declare that he could not have the “cure be worse than the disease,” I knew he realized he had been conned. (The virus is real, and it can kill. That is not the point.) The chosen solution–driven by his desire to keep Americans safe–was in fact going to put more of us in jeopardy for a longer period of time than the disease itself.

He’s a smart man, and he will extricate himself and us from this. But, the question you should be asking yourselves is: Who wanted this? Who did this? Don’t go shallow on your analysis. Don’t lean on past clichés, with answers like “Pelosi and the Democrats.” Frankly they are not smart enough. If you have read my “White King and the Doctor” you know the three dimensional chess game the hero, Andy Weir, was playing with a real-life, real-threat enemy. And, you will discover who were the “pawns.” No matter how much Pelosi, Schiff and Schumer–or any other of your favorite political villains–storm and strut about the stage, they are the pawns of a very real group.

So, ask yourself who benefits if we tank and the American people are returned to poverty? Who benefits if the middle class, which was being rebuilt by Trump’s policies, is suppressed once again? Who benefits if Americans are afraid of hidden attackers like this virus?

Years ago, a wise business mentor of mine, when he was attempting to expose to a young, naïve woman the threats to prosperity and security, said to me, “It’s always about money, Lee. Follow the money.”

And, I have. Pulling on that string led to “White King and the Battle of America: the Endgame.” Just know there is a group that benefits from all wars–always has and always will.

So, follow the money, and ask yourself, “Who benefits?” The answer ties up all the myriad attack lines, actual conspiracies, chaos, confusion, and divisive subjugation tactics of the last four years into one neat, tidy, understandable and breathtakingly simple package.

Tip: Don’t rely upon the Media to do this for you. They lack neither the intellect, nor the intellectual curiosity to do that great a service for their fellow countrymen. Nope, they drank the Kool Aid long ago.

Hint: Though they operate with tentacles and surrogates inside the United States, they are not based in the United States.
