Archiving the real congressional legislation that may make the DEEP STATE deeper than it is today…
What is archived above is a PDF of the reintroduced bill (H.R.1111) that is innocuously titled, “To establish a Department of Peacebuilding, and for other purposes”
The video that follows is a nearly a 30-minute commentary on H.R.1111 from independent YouTube producer Dave Hodges.
All I have to say at this time is read the bill and form your own opinion. The Hodges commentary prompts me to remember when I first heard that the next role that is most coveted by former President Barrack Obama is the title of Secretary General of the United Nations. Not likely, right, as long as Donald Trump holds the title of POTUS? When the issue was raised in the past, the idea was rebutted by many fact checkers. But if you view the video below, you can see the great mutual admiration between Obama and his United Nations gallery during his last address before that body.
By the way, I have scoured the web to search for additional commentary (left and right) on HR1111, but have found none, so, that leads me to post a question on QUORA.
According to the SOURCE, “what if the Russians really are colluding with Americans…on the left?
“#1 New York Times-bestselling author Newt Gingrich returns with this rollicking tale of high-stakes international intrigue—the first book in a contemporary series filled with adventure, betrayal, and politics, that captures the tensions and divides of America and the world today.
“Valerie Mayberry comes from the kind of wealthy family that would be royalty in any other country. Obsessive and compulsive, she’s also the FBI’s counter-intelligence expert on domestic terrorism.
“Brett Garrett is a dishonorably discharged ex-Navy SEAL coming off a secret opioid addiction. A brusque, fiercely independent operative who refuses to play by the rules, the seasoned pro is now a gun for hire, working as a security contractor in Eastern Europe.
“When a high ranking Kremlin official with knowledge of a plan to attack the US must be smuggled out under the nose of a kleptocratic Putin-like Russian president and a ruthless general, Mayberry and Garret are thrown together to exfiltrate him and preempt a deadly poisonous strike.
“As these unlikely partners work to protect their human asset, their mission is threatened by domestic politics: leftist protests, Congressional infighting, and a culture riven by hatred.
“Collusion raises many of the most significant issues facing America in real life today. Is Russia our ally, or our enemy? Are American leftist activists susceptible to influence from aboard? How far will our enemies go to disrupt our politics and weaken the nation? Can we trust the media to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys?
“Newt Gingrich and Pete Earley have entertained and educated readers with three previous novels of Washington scandal and foreign interference. From its explosive opening through several twists and turns to its heart-stopping end, Collusion is their most timely and powerful novel yet.”
NEWT GINGRICH is the former House Speaker and 2012 Presidential Candidate. Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor and To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine are three of his 14 New York Times bestsellers. He is a regular guest on national political shows.
According to SOURCE, “cybercriminals have been directing users to download something called Exodus, an app that was actually malware. It allowed access to photos, videos, device IDs, audio recordings, and contacts, potentially tracking a victim’s location and listening to their conversations through the microphone. It’s an unusual break-in for Apple’s locked-down ecosystem, but it’s a reminder to stay vigilant no matter how safe you think your devices are.” ▶ NUZZEL
#VarsityBlues (continued) Like most other stories in the SocialCurrentSee® of our time, public sentiment in this is largely divided in determining what, if any, justice should follow in the pending trials of the elites who are charged by the FBI.
The April 3 Boston court appearance by Loughlin, Giannulli, and others so charged brought some additional notoriety due to the showtime display by some of the defendants. We welcome your comments.
Since the Ides of March, our SocialCurrentSee (scs®) archives have been populated with ample content linked to #VarsityBlues, aka the college admissions scandal. By now, the world knows that actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman headline a list of more than 50 high-profile personalities indicted in the blockbuster FBI undercover sting to expose the scandal.
According to a SOURCE in Boston (where the trial began April 3), Lori Loughlin cleared any trace of her presence on social media after being charged in the scandal. As news emerged of the Full House star’s alleged involvement, the actress decided to delete her Instagram and Twitter, which has been inundated with tweets about the conspiracy. One daughter Olivia Jade is a well known YouTube star and beauty expert. Reports claim that there are actually court documents that show that Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 to get their daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team despite the fact that they don’t participate in crew.
Now, much of the public angst about this case invokes certain sympathy for the deserving students who were blocked from attending these elite schools because of the admissions scam.

Despite all of the press, public outrage, and constant comments in the socialcurrentsee® of the high-profile scholarship scandal, the legal arguments will primarily deal with tax matters. Allegedly, a fraudulent charity was at the center of the scheme.
The dispute may end up in the United States Tax Court, a tribunal of record established by Congress under Article I of the U.S. Constitution. When the Commissioner of Internal Revenue determines a tax deficiency, the taxpayer may dispute the deficiency in the Tax Court before paying any disputed amount.
Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, stand accused of paying half a million dollars to get their daughters into USC. The couple reportedly paid a bribe to the school’s crew coach to falsely admit their daughters as rowing prodigies, though neither really participated in the sport. Loughlin and Giannulli are due to appear in Boston court April 3 to be arraigned.
According to the Boston Globe, many of the #varsityblues defendants have hired A-list legal teams to represent them in federal court in Boston, where they’re among assorted wealthy parents caught in the nationwide college admissions scandal. Legal findings show Felicity Huffman, 56, and Loughlin, 54, are each charged for allegedly paying bribes to advance the likelihood of their children getting into selective schools. Loughlin allegedly had her daughters falsely accepted as athletic recruits at USC, and Huffman allegedly paid to aid in the cheating of her daughter’s SAT.
Eventually, it could well be that the California defendants in this case will appeal their eventual convictions at a Federal courthouse closer to home, perhaps the well-known Pasadena location.
As of late March 2019, the identity of the defendant that made the $6 million alleged bribe has not been revealed and that was also the alleged discovery which led to more than 50 other indictments, including the Hollywood notables cited above.
Many who follow this story will know that the starlet Lori Loughlin wasn’t even supposed to be a regular on Full House, where she starred alongside the Olsen twins as Uncle Jesse’s lady love. She was originally contracted to only six episodes, but Aunt Becky soon became a fan favorite and producers loved the way she interacted with the Tanner girls. Producers ended up giving her a supporting role, where she became a mainstay and finished out the series in 1995.
For trivia nuts, Loughlin’s first big break was a Tab Cola commercial, and by the time she landed her role in Full House, she was already working in TV. The series helped make her a household name, and she’s since landed some big roles, from the 90210 reboot, to some G-rated basic cable cult hits. All this hard work helped her amass a pretty impressive $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Now documented: Lori Loughlin wiped clean her social media presence on the same day news of the college admissions scandal broke, and her Twitter and Instagram pages no longer exist. The FBI has also accused the Netflix star’s husband, Mossimo, for teaming up with his wife to allegedly agree “to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” according to the court documents that HollywoodLife read.
According to this source, Mossimo appeared in federal court on March 12 and his bond was set at $1 million, as he and Lori were specifically charged for “conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud,” aa described by CNN. Daughters Olivia, 19, and Isabella, 20, have built impressive social media empires, as Olivia has nearly two million YouTube subscribers, while her older sister boasts over 260,000 followers on Instagram. Olivia turned the comments off on her social media pages once the scandal broke.
“On March 12, the FBI disclosed from its investigation that 50 celebrities, executives, lawyers and professors had paid millions of dollars to change their children’s standardized test scores, bribe university officials and coaches and create fake athletic profiles to earn their children admission to USC, UCLA, Yale and Stanford, among other colleges. ▶ SOURCE
“According to court records, 24 students were allegedly admitted to USC under the guise of athletic recruitment between 2011 and 2019, the most of any university implicated in the investigation.”
