    Do You like it, Senator, When the Deep State Works Against You?”

    There’s an old expression: “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” In this case, another old expression is even better: “Turnabout is fair play.” We are all still reeling from the Obama years of “transparency,” and “change you can believe in,” that both equated to Doublethink and Doublespeak. Under Obama, everything was hidden from the American people: Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Ukraine/McCain/Nuland, and the Arab Spring. Nancy Pelosi (on the several thousand-paged Obamacare legislation): “We’ll just have to read it after its finished to know what’s in it.”

    Democrats or Republicans, they are merely far-left Marxists or center-Marxists; nevertheless, they picked up a taste of their own medicine last week. An article was released on 6/7/18, entitled “Conspiracy Theory Proven Fact as Cops Remove Senator from Wal-Mart Converted Into Detention Center.”

    The incident this article describes is very, very important: please read on.

    A U.S. Senator, Jeff Merkley (D-OR), attempted to enter a “shuttered/closed” Wal-Mart on 6/1/18, for the purpose of ascertaining whether the children of illegal aliens were being held there. The Wal-Mart is located in Brownsville, Texas. Here’s an excerpt of that article:

    All the windows and doors to the facility – which is a shuttered Walmart – have been blacked out with window tinting.  [Senator] Merkley arrived and was immediately asked to leave by a female government worker. One of the country’s most powerful lawmakers then demanded to speak with a supervisor. Instead of complying with his wishes in the name of transparency, the shadowy government workers called Brownsville police on the U.S. Senator. After 10 minutes of waiting and being confronted by local police, he was denied entry and forced to leave.

    Later, in a Facebook live video, Merkley remarked: “When an organization has something to hide, not allowing members of Congress to see it, in a democracy, is completely unacceptable…What’s going on is an effort to prevent the press from being able to report to the American people what is happening.  And that’s simply unacceptable.”

    Subsequent to all this, it was learned that Southwest Key Programs runs the detention facility. They released this statement three days after Merkley’s statement, on 6/6/18 that ties in to the big picture. Take note of the government agency behind it all, their name emboldened, and their cover story bottom-line, also emboldened for you:

    “We regret having to turn away Senator Merkley at our Casa Padre shelter.  The U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) prohibits any facility from allowing visits that have not been approved by them, even if it is a U.S. Senator. With ORR approval, Southwest Key shelters have welcomed elected and other public officials at our facilities in the past, and will continue to do so, because we are proud of the caring environment we provide these children. We have reached out to the Senator and connected with his staff because we would like to see this happen.”

    Can’t you just imagine Neil Diamond’s “Coming to America” playing in the back of your mind? Or the old Coca-Cola ad in the early ‘70’s with everyone holding hands and singing, “I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony…” Can’t you hear it now?

    The “welcoming shelter,” that welcomed Senator Merkley by calling the Brownsville Police on him and denying his entrance. The “caring environment” just couldn’t bear, perhaps, to disturb the children?

    Senator Merkley has visited another facility at the McAllen Border station where he pointed out that he saw hundreds of children kept in chain-link fenced-off areas (basically, cages). The White House released a statement that claimed the Senator was “spreading blatant lies.” Of course the actions had to be politicized by both sides.

    But let’s go a little bit further, and bring the punch line of the comedy (or tragedy) in focus. Another statement came out, as well. Here it is:

    At 2 pm on a Friday, the Senator asked to visit a secure DHS facility over the weekend where children are present and we worked with him [the Senator] to provide him access. This presented obvious and serious privacy concerns – not to mention disrupting operations. He was able to visit the facility on Sunday.

    So, we learn that Southwest Key Programs runs the facility for the DHS. That falls in line perfectly, as DHS has subcontracted out the management of the place to them. Such actions place a layer of insulation between them and the facility. By “corporatizing” the facility instead of having it run by DHS outright, it removes it from direct government oversight by placing it in the hands of a private corporation. Simultaneously, the DHS still controls it by maintaining federal bureaucratic oversight.

    Isn’t it amazing? If a U.S. citizen were to carry out such a “slicky” maneuver, they would be charged with forming a shell corporation for the purposes of concealing another venture and perhaps thrown into a cell…indefinitely…never being charged with anything because that isn’t necessary anymore. Charges are unnecessary, because with indefinite detention being authorized by Congress, what is necessary?

    The only thing that’s necessary is that you be placed under investigation; investigation is the key word, now.

    Interestingly enough, Senator Merkley was never permitted to visit, nor did he visit that facility on Sunday, 6/3/18, or any other time. Guess who made that statement?

    DHS Press Secretary Tyler Houlton, the same man who just a few months ago informed us that the new DHS policy would be to gather up the names of journalists, reporters, writers, bloggers, radio show hosts, and anyone in the Independent News Media that mentioned or wrote about the DHS. He referred to Independent Media reporters as “tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists.”

    In truth, there’s a lot more to this entire scenario than meets the eye. Let’s summarize it.

    1. The ORR as mentioned previously was formed long before President Trump took office. This shows a continuation of Deep State policies that run without being interrupted by a change in administrations.

    2. There is no transparency in government, even when such transparency is demanded by a government official (in this case, a United States Senator) who has been elected to represent the people.

    3. The three-party system of checks and balances is nothing but a desiccated husk, the shell of a cicada clinging to the bark of a tree.

    4. The irony: politicians do not like it when they are subjected to censorship and denied access to the truth…exactly the same way they have denied American citizens from the truth with endless legislation and bureaucracy, closed-door sessions and meetings, and other tactics employed by the rulers on the ruled.

    5. This is just one little facility. Just one. Think it ends there? Think again: this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    6. If the administration knows about such things as these “happy welcoming centers,” then it is either powerless to stop them, or it supports them.

    7. Senator Merkley said that it is “unacceptable” for a “democracy” to prevent a member of congress from investigating something…or to keep “the press” from reporting it to the people.

    This last item, #7, is the crux of the problem: too many middlemen between the event and the American people, to include elected officials and bureaucrats, and the press. Where is the news? Where has the news been? Why, all mainstream media (MSM) is Associated Press approved, and every paper marches in lock step…it is canned, controlled, and censored content. It is deliberately crafted to mold the public consciousness into the “social conscience” of groupthink…tearing down all normative and traditional beliefs and supplanting them with malleable groupthink.

    It is all form and no substance. The MSM is a 70 year-old prostitute with a made-up, plastic face: a mannequin without a soul, living in a $10 million dollar mansion and claiming to be an average citizen, reporting on “grass roots” issues. Those issues are mere tabloids: bread and circuses provided to the masses to obfuscate and divert focus away from the theft, the ever-increasing surveillance, and the never-ending wars of expansion and global dominance. These tabloid issues exploit the deterioration of society. Even all our crumbling infrastructure is nothing more than a true picture of how we have become a potholed, banana-republic with run-down highways and broken bridges and highwaymen with badges robbing us for ad valorem at will, or worse.

    The politicians are even more heinous than the press, especially since they control the press, equating “freedom to fawn” with license to write. Politicians lie in the campaign and then enter office to do exactly the opposite of what they promised. They cannot be held accountable. It is a business: the business of politics. It is a cycle, where the red clown faces off against the blue clown, and the winning clown sprouts fangs of Stephen King’s “It” as soon as the swearing in is completed. Government is no longer in the hands of the people: the people are necessary for labor and to keep the machine running, but we are ruled, not governed.

    Last week a U.S. Senator received the same spoonful of Castor oil that Congress has been giving to the American people for decades. More than that occurred, however, as another example emerged of lack of balanced accountability and the control of the Shadow government. Working through and aided by bureaucracies…obscure ones created under executive order but without Congressional oversight or expiration date…this Shadow government is one step away from seizing power and smothering out the last sparks of freedom in this country forever.

    It is dangerous to write this article. It is dangerous to write these words, and this comes straight out of the mouths of bureaucrats and government officials. Others will also smear the words: anonymous or masked expletive-laden vitriol spouted by the trolls. They are lackeys, either paid for or indirectly supporting the stance of that Shadow government. The open government and the Shadow government have vested interests in one another, for now. Make no mistake: they mutually support one another.

    There is a written document much greater than mine, however, that has been smeared and denounced over time.  The document’s greatest detractors, ironically, are not the ones who openly denounce and revile it. The true detractors are the complacent ones…the ones who do not exercise the very God-given rights affirmed and championed by this written document: the Constitution of the United States of America.

    It is in this vein that I claim those rights given to me before birth, and affirmed within the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States: the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Someone may need these words: someone who is struggling whether or not to take a stand within their heart and maybe in their family, workplace, or community. Maybe it will make a difference for at least one, and one is more than none. The First Amendment needs to be exercised if we’re ever to have a government by “We the People” ever again.

    1. I thought that Wal-Mart being used as FEMA CAMPS was all bs. Looks like the rumor smoke has some fiery truth behind it.

      Oh well, publicize this story. That ought to send the illegals running back to their homelands and stop them from entering the USA illegally.

      Unfortunately, this shit never stops with undesirables, it starts with undesirables and keeps going.

      Besides being an idiot Democrat, we are a Republic, he votes on budgets. Quit being a “good Party member” and cut their funds!
      Problem goes away.
      As for the press, sites like SHTF is how we get information.
      You can’t trust all content, but it is better than CNN, MSNBC, ABC,CBS,NBC, et al.

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        Rellik, that’s right about Congress controlling the purse strings but I guess it never occurred to the libturd idiot, “Hey, why don’t we just cut off DHS’ budget?” DHS is totally illegitimate just like the other alphabet soup agencies. No one owes them a damn thing. No one has to follow anything they say.

        • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

          Kevin2, that’s sad but true. I guess he doesn’t realize the power he really has as a US Senator

          • Kevin2 says:

            Take a cause that the public can identify with and bluntly confront the system maybe taking a physical lump or two in the process and your immediately elevated to hero status. You might not be a darling to your party and the opposing party but the body politic is looking for a Patrick Henry, John Hancock (I want King George to see my name). The PR would be priceless and unstoppable. Instead these so called legislators look at Madison Avenue PR “specialists” who paint them in a color that the public can often see through. We want a Teddy Rosevelt and get a Bill Clinton.

            Once again…….Cotton Balls.

      • Anon says:

        I live in Oregon and Merkley is a prick of the first degree. He isn’t even welcome here except for the bleeding libs in Portland, Eugene, Salem, and their surrounding areas. What the hell is that asshole doing in Texas? Stand up Texans and eradicate that dick.

    3. Jacknife says:

      Hey Geri Johnson, stay tuned, the NKorean emp is gonna be lobbed right after Trump leaves Singapore.

    4. Stuart says:

      No they are not FEMA camps. DHS/INS are using them as housing for illegal scum who have been taught to game the system by requesting asylum. Obama would give them a court date and set them free, naturally to never be seen again. Now they stick the trash in a Wal-Mart until their court date after which they escort them to the border.
      Trump is doing a LOT of things low key to avoid Dumbocrat “outrage”. I like it.

    5. Fritz says:

      This is off-topic but two freaky things in a row just happened to me. The first was that one of those really loud weather alerts blared on the tv. Well, the sky was kind of dark so that shouldn’t seem unusual except that the set was not turned on. I went into the living room just in time to see the very end of the alert and the tv turn itself back off. When did this start happening? It never happened to me before. Maybe it’s a good idea during severe weather but it’s just creepy to me that they can turn your tv on and off like that.

      So, I went back to what I was doing which, of all things, was watching and old Bill Cooper video interview on You-Tube. I hit resume play button but then about ten seconds later, the sound went dead on my computer. Everything else works fine; just no sound. I’ve rebooted, checked mute buttons and settings, plugs and cords, still no sound anywhere.

      I guess I’ve been warned. Looking for my shiny hat now. You all have a nice day now.

      • Fritz, my suspicion is that since we know these cable boxes have microphones built into them, that their algorithm “informed” their computer (just like every phone call is recorded) that you were listening to Bill Cooper and they remotely used secret software to mess up your equipment, or it was done automatically by their central computer.

        One day all these NSA folk are gonna have to answer to GOD!

        Hang in there, Fritz. You did nothing wrong. You exercised your rights under God, and, our Constitution. It seems your rights got violated.

        Thoreau said that one person who speaks the truth constitutes a majority of one. You sought out Cooper’s truth and you both are in that majority, Fritz. They can’t own you as long as you stay a Patriot and God fearing. Don’t surrender who you are nor your freedom, and don’t take the Mark of the Beast.

        The next time you listen to YouTube blast a stereo at your TV with a blanket over the screen and box.

        And you can thank Bush2 for switching us from analog to “digital”. He’s the one who lied about weapons of mass destruction so he could get revenge on Saddam because years earlier he had sent a hit team after Bush1 (it got intercepted, and rather than let what happened go, he sent many of our young servicepeople to their deaths to get his personal revenge).

        In the meantime, stay in the light.

        – the Lone Ranger

        • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

          Lone Ranger, good advice but he can take it one step further. Cancel the cable subscription and throw out the TV. I haven’t had a ‘boob tube’ or cable in years and don’t want either one. I’m an internet freak and that’s good enough for me.

          • Fritz says:

            DB – That’s great advice even if for no other reason than the cost. Here where I’m at in SC, they get me for $170 a month for the cable, internet and landline package. It’s nuts! Cable is a luxury; something we can easily live without as you pointed out. By comparison, last month it cost me about the same amount for electric, gas, water and sewer put together. America’s priorities are all screwed up to value the junk as much as things that are necessities. I guess I’ve been as guilty as all the rest but I’m ready to join you in chucking the boob tube at least. Best wishes and keep on doing what you do best which is keeping them straight out there.

        • Fritz says:

          Thanks masked man! You obviously know which Bill Cooper I was referring to. Still no sound no matter what I try. Tomorrow I’ll locate some cheapo computer speakers and find out if I had a sudden, coincidental hardware failure.

          You know what else is creepy about the cable company? If I let the tv set sit idle for awhile, a message comes on the screen that says “Press any button to continue watching this channel”. If you don’t press any buttons, after a minute the message goes away by itself. Since nothing happens if you don’t, then it’s not some kind on energy saving timer that kindly turns your set off for you. Someone wants you to press a button to confirm that you are actually there in front of the set watching that channel. Why?

          Keep stacking those silver bullets Lone Ranger.

          • Fritz, what you wrote reminded me of a line a courageous female character said to the lone gunmen (Mulder’s helpful friends) from the older X-Files series, “It’s ok to be paranoid, and remember, you can never be paranoid enough.”

            To which I say, “AMEN!”

            – the Lone Ranger

      • Tpat says:

        Happening on intense red pill podcasts as well. Just getting into the deep meat when the podcast cuts out and deletes. Try to reload and it’s the same thing at the same time mark. The dicks think they can control everything, but they can’t. Info is everywhere, truth is everywhere.

    6. Kevin2 says:

      ” the shadowy government workers called Brownsville police on the U.S. Senator. After 10 minutes of waiting and being confronted by local police, he was denied entry and forced to leave.”

      Regardless of position the US Senator has “Cotton Balls”. If he was anything like our Founding Fathers (fat chance at that) he would return with plenty of recording equipment, demand entry, enter with force, video record same and dare the Police to manhandle him. Instant “World New Tonight” moment.

    7. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

      I talk about DHS all I want so wtf are they gonna do about it? And I’m not even part of anyone’s media. F#$% DHS. I don’t owe them anything.

    8. Qdolph says:

      How is it that one of the most powerful law maker’s thinks we are a democracy. I thought we were a republic.

    9. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

      Qdolph, yes we are a republic.

    10. Moses Strongbear says:

      If such camps exist for illegal children what other camps exist for other classes of people. perhaps you miss the obvious point here. Maybe the Wal Mart held other classes of people and not children at all. Perhaps prisoners of war from Afghanistan for questioning Or perhaps US citizens who are too loud or who know too much Secret prisons tell no tales

    11. Dragyn says:

      The lurking vet wrote this tirade without a single word about the “refugee” threat. The problem is the illegals, not cages to hold them.

    12. Tpat says:

      Thanks, JJ. Your missives are always spot on and well researched. I mostly skip over alot of the articles on this sight, but never skip yours. Those who bash you are the typical “ANTS”…anti nationalist traitorous snakes”. Their criticisms are ant spit.

      Keep up the good work

      T from uny

    13. cranerigger says:

      Thanks Jeremiah Johnson, I hadn’t heard about this event. Congressmen & SENATORS are elected to represent the people & the states in this republic. Whoever is running that facility just gave a big middle-finger to all the citizens. It isn’t difficult to connect the next dot and see these same facility operators stepping all over the Constitution in a false-flag or other event. What due-process does any poor bastard have hope of, if he is confined in this windowless prison?

    14. Tpat says:

      JJ
      I trust your opinions, but will still do my own due diligence. Your thoughts on Q?

    15. In Oregon 34 out of 36 counties are “sanctuaries”, which is against the Law. There is a massive housing crisis with many, way too many homeless Americans and 2 days ago on the Tom Hartman radio show, our employee jeff merkley was sobbing because the criminal illegal invaders were not treated well. Well, this traitor, prevaricating and corrupt politician has been aiding and abetting the invaders and should have been prosecuted, fined and jailed a long time ago. But then again, nothing happens and the Citizens still pay his inflated salary. WTF???
