Actions have consequences:

The announcement shortly before 6 p.m. capped an unnerving 24 hours that began with China allowing its currency to slide to an 11-year low against the dollar and continued through a near-1,000 point drop in the Dow.

Cooper made another prediction. “Folks, I can assure you that 72 hours from now we will be at war. We will be bombing two or maybe three countries….Because that’s how it works. When governments are attacked, they lash out. Thousands of people who had nothing whatsoever to do with what is happening at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are going to die.

“Nothing will be the same after today,” Cooper said grimly.

“Get ready for it, folks, because that’s what you’re going to be hearing in the next weeks and months on radio and television: Nothing will be the same after today….Because I’ll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that’s what the people who really did this want you to think, that nothing, nothing, will be the same after today.

Cooper was a patriot. The U.S. Government killed him because he spoke the ugly truth about 9/11 causes and planned consequences.

Quote
In an interview I did recently with Larry Wilkerson, he called Mueller the “cleanup man” for the Republican Party. Years post 9/11, Iraq war, I mean, the FBI was accused by Graham under Mueller’s 😈 administration for directly not properly investigating the 9/11 situation.

I was all over Bill Cooper for years. Read "Pale Horse," collected audio files of his radio show. He wasn't always right, but he was right about a lot. And yes, they shut him up.

NOTE: The DDD will be on hiatus from tomorrow, 8/9 through Monday, 8/12. resuming on Tuesday, 8/13.

Enjoy your break.       

Thanks a bunch. My niece is getting married in September and we drove to her shower about 500 miles away. Car trips get longer every year. More like being entombed in a crypt on wheels for 10 hours.

As a man, I never went to a bridal shower before. With excellent reason. this will be my last, but the kid had a good time and received many lovely gifts.

Will be doing this again in September when she gets married.

I just read this interesting quote. It pretty much sums up our 🦍 Police State's MO and 😇 happy talk horseshit:

Quote
Craven Moorehead

Thank god the FBI got to Epstein's Island first, at least we know they will have secured (destroyed) any evidence they may find, so that it can be used to expose everyone of the powerful elites (not) who partook in Epstein's pedo services. It's reassuring to know that such a historically trustworthy (corrupt) Law enforcement institution is going to ensure that all the pertinent evidence is going to be applied to ensure that "All are equal in the eyes of the law" and that justice will be served, no matter who the perpetrators are.(sarcasm)

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-13/shrieking-heard-epsteins-jail-cell-morning-he-died


The dead (pun intended) give away that Barr is Bullshitting is his sentence structure. He uses the verb, "WAS" repeatedly before lying through his teeth about "continuing" to seek Epstein's co-criminals. It is absolutely breathtaking how skilled this Barr elite CIA SCUM is at crying crocodile tears and simultaneously sending the messsage, to ANYONE who is a criminal involved in the Eptstein Despicable Horrors, that they have nothing to fear.
