The Catholic Church has traditionally understood itself to be the new Israel (Catechism of the Catholic Church 877). Just as Israel was God’s people in the Old Testament, the Church is his people now, and to many in our culture, this sounds extremely arrogant and possibly even anti-Semitic. It seems like we’re saying that God has rejected the Jews and chosen a new people to replace them. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
With St. Paul, the Church affirms that God has not rejected his people from the Old Testament (Romans 11:1-2), and the way we understand our position as the new Israel involves a lot more nuance than simply saying that the Church has replaced the Jews in God’s eyes. So what exactly does this mean? How exactly can we say that we are the new Israel without disparaging the “old” Israel?
Western medicine has some good points, and is great in an emergency, but it’s high time people realized that today’s mainstream medicine (western medicine or allopathy), with its focus on drugs, drugs, radiation, drugs, surgery, drugs and more drugs, is at its foundation a money spinning Rockefeller creation.
People these days look at you like a weirdo if you talk about the healing properties of plants or any other holistic practices. Much like anything else, politics and money have been used to warp people’s minds and encourage them to embrace what is bad for them.
Washington is on high alert. Attorney General Barr has publicly put the players in the effort to unseat a duly elected President of the United States on notice. They know that after two and a half years of unjustly accusing President Trump and his campaign of working with foreign entities to secure a win over Hillary Clinton, that the tables are about to be turned on them.
If we had an honest media, they would be pointing out the panicked attacks against our U.S. Attorney General by Democrats in the Senate Judiciary Hearing last week. If we had an honest media, they would be questioning why, for the first time in almost three years, the Democrat Party and their allies in the mainstream media, have called off the attack dogs on President Trump over his alleged collusion with Russia? If we had an honest media, that wasn’t working in unison with the Democrat Party; they’d be asking why they’re changing targets, as they suddenly turning their smear campaign on U.S. Attorney General Barr, the one man they know who can and will expose them.
Today, U.S. Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) went scorched earth on his fellow Democrat colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee.$
Rep. Jordan told them, “Bill Barr is following the law—and what’s his reward? The Democrats are gonna hold him in contempt.” Jordan continued, “I don’t think today is actually about getting information. I don’t think it’s about getting the unredacted Mueller report. I don’t last week’s hearing was actually about having staff question the attorney general. I think it’s as my colleagues said earlier, I think it’s all about trying to destroying Bill Barr because Democrats are nervous he’s going to get to the bottom of everything.”
Mr. Barr tolerantly sat through hours of Democratic insults at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday. His reward for his patience was to be labeled, in the space of a news cycle, a lawbreaking, dishonest, obstructing hack. Speaker Nancy Pelosi publicly accused Mr. Barr of lying to Congress, which, she added, is “considered a crime.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler threatened he would hold Mr. Barr in contempt unless the attorney general agreed to be cross-examined by committee members’ staff attorneys.
A visibly shaking Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen (TN), pulled an embarrassing stunt, when he held a rubber chicken up for the cameras, accusing AG Barr of being a “chicken,” for not showing up for to the Democrats version of “the rack,” while Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu shamelessly stood behind him. AG Barr refused to attend a House Judiciary Committee hearing over objections to a decision by Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to include House staffers in the questioning of the attorney general.
James Comey, former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, lamented that Donald Trump had “eaten” Mr. Barr’s “soul.” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren demands the attorney general resign. California Rep. Eric Swalwell wants him impeached.
During AG Barr’s testimony, the disgraced, fired FBI director, James Comey immediately tweeted his perfectly time op-ed in the New York Times
The same day House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes gave a press conference stating that Trump and his transition team were under “incidental surveillance,” Attorney and founder of Judicial Watch, Larry Klayman, sent a formal letter to the House Committee on Intelligence demanding they investigate the claims and evidence more than 40 hard drives over 600 million pages of information presented under oath at the FBI Field Office In Washington, DC by his client – CIA/NSA Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery.
Klayman claimed in a Newsmax report that Montgomery, “holds the keys to disproving the false claims that there is no evidence that the president and his men were wiretapped,” however Montgomery’s case was largely ignored. “When Montgomery came forward as a whistleblower to congressional intelligence committees and various other congressmen and senators, including Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who, like Comey, once had a reputation for integrity, he was “blown off;” no one wanted to even hear what he had to say,” the letter said.This resulted in Montgomery contacting Attorney Klayman, who then approached the FBI:
“Under grants of immunity, which I obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration.
Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information much of which is classified. He sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.
He even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”
Allegations made by Montgomery claim that there was a, “systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump.”
Montgomery’s claims aren’t new, as other whistleblowers have alleged the same. Former head of the NSA’s digital spying team William Binney also came forward. Binney disclosed as fact the U.S. was spying on everyone in the U.S. and storing the data forever, and the U.S. was quickly becoming an Orwellian state. The Feds tried to intimidate him into shutting up:
“Numerous FBI officers held a gun to Binney’s head as he stepped naked from the shower. He watched with his wife and youngest son as the FBI ransacked their home. Later Binney was separated from the rest of his family, and FBI officials pressured him to implicate one of the other complainants in criminal activity. During the raid, Binney attempted to report to FBI officials the crimes he had witnessed at NSA, in particular the NSA’s violation of the constitutional rights of all Americans. However, the FBI wasn’t interested in these disclosures. Instead, FBI officials seized Binney’s private computer, which to this day has not been returned despite the fact that he has not been charged with a crime.
On top of prior allegations, Russ Tice also alleged that the Obama administration tapped judges and SCOTUS. Tice continued to Sibel Edmond’s BoilingFrogsPost and said they even “tapped members of Congress and the military.”
Stratfor emails published by Wikileaks also showed the Democrats manipulated the 2008 presidential election, Business Insider reported.
This means that Montgomery may have already had his evidence collaborated twice.
The FBI had Montgomery’s testimony and evidence for over two years and did nothing despite having the holy grail of “intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.”
An additional claim was made by Tice to former RT host of Breaking The Set Abby Martin, that the Obama administration allegedly was “blackmailing officials” including former President Obama himself. Tice alleged that Obama was tapped back in 2004 as a Senator and that he saw the order.
“In the summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a forty-some-year-old senator from Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives now would you? It’s a big White House in Washington D.C. That’s who the NSA went after. That’s the President of the United States now,” Tice said.
Last Thursday, March 16th, 2017 – Klayman traveled to Washington DC. He was to meet with House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes. He hoped that Nunes would listen and ask FBI Director, Comey, why the FBI failed to pursue Montgomery’s evidence.
However, when Klayman arrived to speak with Nunes, he was “blown off” and referred to committee attorney, Allen R. Souza – who Klayman then requested brief Nunes on the information.
During my meeting with House Intelligence Committee counsel Allen R. Sousa I politely warned him that if Chairman Nunes, who himself had that same day undercut President Trump by also claiming that there is no evidence of surveillance by the Obama administration, I would go public with what would appear to be the House Intelligence Committee’s complicity in keeping the truth from the American people and allowing the FBI to continue its apparent cover-up of the Montgomery “investigation.”
To this day, this is where it currently stands. The big question: will House Intelligence Committee Chairman Nunes do his job and hold FBI Director Comey’s feet to the fire about the Montgomery investigation?
On Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 – on an unrelated front; House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes noted that he did not know whether the “incident collection” of communications of Trump associates happened at Trump Tower. Nunes could not definitively say whether Trump’s communications were directly collected.
Nunes told reporters that, “I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored.” He continued to say, “It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.”
Multiple sources continue to confirm that a massive storm of scandal is brewing. The previous Obama administration is involved and could potentially result in the arrest of several Obama-era officials swallowed in this ‘storm of scandals’ path.
Grab your popcorn! The fireworks have been set and are about to go off in Washington D.C. Even Bob Woodward has confirmed what we are hearing from the confines of the intelligence community and military, “there is a real serious problem for the people in the Obama administration.”
Woodward, who made a name for himself covering Watergate stated that there are around 20 people in the 16-agency intelligence community who can order the unmasking, or “minimization,” of individuals. Further, Trey Gowdy questioned FBI Director James Comey probing into who leaked General Flynn’s identity to the media. Comey stated that “Obama political appointees had the ability to ‘Unmask’ American citizens.”
“You can learn all kinds of things from diplomats gossiping because that’s what occurs. Under the rules, and they are pretty strict, it’s called minimization. You don’t name the American person who is being discussed,” Woodward said.
“It’s, again, down the middle, it is not what Trump said, but this could be criminal on the part of people who decided, oh, let’s name these people.”
“Under the rules, that name is supposed to be blanked out, and so you’ve got a real serious problem potentially of people in the Obama administration passing around this highly classified gossip,” Woodward added.

“The rise of Masons to political power in Israel dates back to 1948 and to Israel’s founding as a modern-day nation. David Ben-Gurion, its first Prime Minister, was both a Mason and an avowed Marxist-Leninist and Communist. Since that time, every single Prime Minister has been a high-level Mason, including Golda Meier, who was a member of the women’s organization, the Co-Masons.”

Lost in all of the media frenzy over the Mueller Report, redactions, and alleged improprieties within the Department of Justice and FBI, was Attorney General William Barr telling the Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday that he favors a more federalist approach to marijuana laws.
Marijuana Legislation Should Be Up to the States
In response to a question from Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Barr said that allowing the states to set their own marijuana policy and removing the federal government from the matter would be an improvement over the present situation, which he called an “intolerable” conflict between state and federal laws. Senator Murkowski is a sponsor of the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act, which would give immunity from federal action against business and people engaged in the manufacture, sale, purchase, or consumption of marijuana in states where it has been legalized. President Trump has signaled in the past that he would sign the bill if it was passed and sent to his desk.
Unfortunately, Barr still opposes federal legalization, but his approach to the issue is a stark and welcome contrast to that of his predecessor Jeff Sessions and would amount to de facto federal decriminalization—at least in the states that have decided to legalize marijuana.
It also signals a realization that the march toward state-by-state legalization continues to gather momentum. Marijuana reduces the need for opioids to relieve pain and studies have shown lower opioid-related overdose death rates when legal. It may be just a matter of a few years before federal decriminalization of marijuana becomes a reality and, as is the case with alcohol, it will be a matter left up to each of the states and the District of Columbia.
Decriminalization should be a welcome change for all who are concerned with the growing rate of opioid-related overdose deaths. There is growing evidence that marijuana reduces the need for opioids to relieve pain and numerous studies have shown lower opioid-related overdose death rates in states where access to marijuana is legal. Furthermore, marijuana has great potential as a harm reduction strategy.
At the recent conference on harm reduction held at the Cato Institute, Dr. Adrienne Wilson-Poe, a nationally recognized cannabis clinical researcher at Washington University School of Medicine, gave a detailed and enlightening presentation on the potential role for cannabis in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) as well as opioid withdrawal management. You can see that presentation here. Dr. Wilson-Poe was also interviewed on a Cato Daily Podcast here.
