My object today is to check the veracity of some key sources of the thesis of Whitney Webb's two-volume-work, One Nation Under Blackmail. 

Why am I doing this? Because Whitney Webb asked me to. She's asked all of us to "engage more" with the source material in her endnotes, to "fact-check" her research. Indeed, like Gary Hart before that "Monkey Business" business, Webb often issues this challenge while promoting her briskly selling book in online interviews. 

OK. I've accepted the challenge. For the past several weeks, I have been discussing what I have found out about Webb's research at my Patreon channel, which I am making available here (J. Edgar Hoover), here (late...

Seen in Barnes & Noble today in Ashburn, Virginia.

Very nice display for any book -- but especially one that came out in 2013. 

 

This week's battle against the fatal inexorability of "Speaker McCarthy" seemed a little different from Swamp business as usual.

Today is Day 2.

Human Events reports:

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano intends to hold a 3-day fast from January 3rd to 5th in support of those who are still detained on January 6 related charges. 964 individuals have been charged with crimes, many of them misdemeanors, related to January 6, and 465 pleaded guilty. Hundreds are still languishing in DC-area jails awaiting trial. 

In a letter exclusively obtained by Human Events, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, said "I hope that this initiative will find many adherents, in a spirit of true reparation of the innumerable sins and grave betrayals committed."

"I can only encourage and bless this commendable gesture of penance, to be accompanied by prayer – above all the Holy Rosary – for the beloved Nation which I had the privilege of knowing during my officeas Apostolic Nuncio," he said.
