Protect Mueller: No One Is Above the Law

Rally in Eugene Oregon in response to Trump appointing Matt Whitaker as US Attorney General after forcing Jeff Sessions to resign the day after Republicans were defeated in a Democrat ripple which took back the House and elected several governors throughout the Country.

Rally features David Fidanque, former Executive Director of Oregon ACLU and several volunteer speakers who speak to their past, present and ongoing problems with the Trump administration.

The rally was part of hundreds of similar rallies taking place across the United States and in a few other countries.


Mueller investigation is a Nothingburger. 09.Nov.2018 18:33

good luck


'protest' to your hearts' and free times content, Trump will not ever be affected by the 2016 election results. And 'Russiagate' is irrational conspiracy theory.

( perhaps ? better to get prepared for the 2020 election cycle if you want to "get rid" of Trump, because it looks like he'll be reelected .... but never mind me who am I to tell you what to do .... )

This Is The New Controlled Left 09.Nov.2018 20:02


The new CIA controlled left do what they are brainwashed to do. They aren't really progressive. Yet they demand "solidarity" with THEM!

They have been instructed that Trump is much worse than Obama and Hillary -- which is bullshit.

Obama and Hillary brutally murdered Gaddafi and demolished beautiful socialist Libia.

The "Resitance" is actually the new Hitler Youth.

what's really funny...

is that corporate-mass-media warmonger Rachel Maddow is leading the Facebook (also CIA)

'charge of the rights brigade' for everyone to show up for the pro-Mueller protests.

Hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic.


Mueller's History of Cover-Ups 10.Nov.2018 14:45

dig within

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been in the news lately due to his inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections. After a 12-year stint leading the Bureau, the longest ever since J. Edgar Hoover, Mueller is now seen by many as an honest man serving the interest of the American public. However, that perception cannot be defended once one knows about Mueller's past.

What some people don't know about Mueller is that he has a long history of leading government investigations that were diversions or cover-ups. These include the investigation into the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, the investigation into the terrorist financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and the FBI investigations into the crimes of September 11th, 2001. Today the public is beginning to realize that Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is a similar diversion.

The Mueller Mirror Tunnel: where no reflection is your last! 10.Nov.2018 14:52



all of the "Russia Russia" plot is based upon Hillary Clinton having achieved victory on 8 November 2016.

Special Counsel, FISA application, "dossier" —

*everything* was predicated upon "Her" having won the election. Everything points to utter destruction of the Trump et al. 'cabal'.

Problem :

Hillary lost.



The Cancer Thinks It's The Body Politic
author: Norman Ball

The Mueller Independent Counsel is like a Trumanite consulate within the resurgent Madisonian government spearheaded by Trump. Without Mueller's lingering presence, the Democrats (mantle-holders at the moment for the Deep State, along with some furtive Republican establishment support) would have no substantive speaking-role, outside of (are you ready?) Maxine Waters.

The Object of Mueller's investigation is not to go away. Mueller is the beachhead that invents incoming German artillery fire. The enemy is over the hill only because Mueller says he is. Culled from the same infernal cauldron as the War on Terror, Mueller emanates from nowhere and everywhere and is as durable as the capacity for human terror (i.e. inexhaustible). The perpetual motion machine from Lawfare Hell.

As Adam Hill points out, this in perpetuum feature accomplishes two simultaneous objectives. One, it permanently sub-optimizes Trump's Presidency and two, it permits Rosenstein to forever dish his favored response to Congressional questions: "I'm sorry I can't answer that question because of the ongoing nature of the investigation." Here's Hill:

... Rosenstein and others embarrassed by DOJ's actions may derive raison d'être, if not safety, from the never-ending nature of the investigation. And like Leonard Shelby's investigative file, the Russia investigation has become a puzzle that is designed to never be solved. Because to do so would end the "ongoing investigation" excuse that keeps the cause of DOJ's embarrassment under wraps.
The Object of Mueller's investigation is not to go away.

...not a haven for right wing nut jobs conspiracy theories, fake radicals and gullible purity ponies?

(Hey 'sigh') : "haven for right wing nut jobs conspiracy theories" 12.Nov.2018 23:00


Examples please? Right now.

Tell us where the [QUOTE]"right wing nut jobs conspiracy theories" are:

provide specific Portland Indymedia URLs.

Are You Capable of doing that, 'sigh'?

Examples 13.Nov.2018 08:01


Well, for starters, the 9-11 conspiracy theories are at the least also found on right wing sites, although on this site the overtone that non-white people are too stupid to have ever learned to fly a jet and then figured how to crash it is more of a dog whistle. And then you have the items saying that people who were killed and people whose family members and friends were killed in various massacres were just crisis actors in a totally fake event. That too is prominent on right wing websites. That's just a taste.

RE: "the 9-11 conspiracy theories" — 13.Nov.2018 16:30


Referring perhaps to the official story propogated by the U.S. government, are you Garth?

Portland Indymedia has an entire section of its site Topic Pages specifically dedicated to the People's investigation of


Even if the non-U.S. government investigations and facts concerning 9/11 events are not "officially" accepted,
how exactly are they [The Originally-Asked Question] "right wing" in nature or orientation?

Last time I checked the right wing blogs, websites and social media have an even greater intolerance for Non-Official explanations of 9/11,
than do leftist sites and sources.

( as to supposed 'crisis actor' ?? topics, please <-- point one of these articles or discussions out with a Portland Indymedia URL )

Also Garth: your " non-white people" / "racist" theory doesn't fly AND NEVER HAS IN THE YEARS PRIOR ATTEMPTS BY YOU

You're beyond a joke or even a caricature of Yourself, Garth.

MoonTruthersFlatEarthers+RussiaGaters UNITE!

U.S. Corporate Media Push Moon-Truther "Trump: Russian Asset Since 1987" Conspiracy Theory

so you thought rAT's latest  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2018/07/436380.shtml "Trump stole immigrant children for extraterrestrial black ops" wasn't enough? Wishing for some more amperage / higher voltage?

Have we got a CT for you, Flat-Earthers.

Donald Trump has been a RUSSIAN ASSET since at least 1987!

How d'ya like them apples?

[Wikipedia] Jonathan Chait is an American commentator and writer for New York magazine. He was previously a senior editor at The New Republic and an assistant editor of The American Prospect. He writes a periodic column in the Los Angeles Times.

In the latest issue of New York Magazine, Chait's cover story 'Prump/Tutin' claims that Vladimir Putin is Donald Trump's "handler" and that he's a 'Manchurian Candidate' (Lol!) who ascended to the White House for the express purpose of serving the Kremlin.

NYMag itself blurbs about Chait's screed: a "plausible theory" [Lol!] of Trump's collusion with Russia.

Nobody, still (after 2 full years) knows what "collusion" means to begin with. All of this, without a shred of evidence of course.

POLITICO has put up an editorial (by Tom Nichols) about Chait's claims titled:
'What Jonathan Chait Gets Right About Trump and Russia'
with the byline:
"Thirty years of contacts with Russia are hard to dismiss as a series of disconnected events."

Maybe Trump's gonna broker a real estate sale of the Brooklyn Bridge to the Russkies, and it'll be reconstructed in Moscow?

Popular Mechanics needs to get over there and debunk Chait and New York Magazine, tout de suite. After all they did such a bang-up job [NOT] with the World Trade Center towers...
