Shiny Object Syndrome (Objectivius Shinium Syndromus) is defined as the attraction to objects that exhibit a glassy, polished, gleaming or otherwise shiny appearance. Something as simple as a reflection in your peripheral vision may easily distract your attention.
The biggest scandal in American history was revealed last week, that being the failed Deep State coup against the American people in the 2016 Presidential election. Last week it was revealed that the Deep State’s Koch Brothers, Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable, Wall Street Vulture Capitalists, CIA, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, RNC, DNC, billionaire owned media and Britain’s MI6 conspired to oust the President elected by the American people in the 2016 election. Time for the Deep State’s media to toss out a shiny object to distract the attention of the American people.
Deep State’s first coup attempt failed in 2016
During the 2016 election the two candidates the Deep State feared most were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. A plan was hatched to keep both candidates from reaching the required 270 Electoral College votes throwing the election into to the hands of the Deep State’s Speaker of the House and the Republican majority to select America’s president. From Down the Rabbit Hole in September 2016:
Debate or “Never Trump” prelude to election theft
Presidential candidate, former CIA operative and GOP House policy guru Evan McMullin revealed on Sunday the “Never Trump” plot to steal the election.
Evan McMullin, the former chief policy director for the House GOP Conference and former CIA operative laid out the “Never Trump” plot to steal the November election from Clinton and Trump. Appearing on Wisconsin’s Sunday morning political show, Upfront with Mike Gousha, Mc Mullin revealed his backers’ plot to take the election out of the voters’ hands and punt it to the GOP controlled House of Representatives. McMullin revealed the plan is “to block Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from winning the Electoral College so that the election goes to the House of Representatives to choose the winner.”
GOP establishment candidate
McMullin entered the race in August as the “Never Trump” candidate with backing of the Republican establishment’s most well-known operatives Bill Kristol, John Kingston, Joel Searby and Rick Wilson. Within days of the announcement of his candidacy on August 8, 2016 McMullin gained access to the ballots in Utah and Colorado and announced legal action would be taken against states with deadlines on or after August 15. By August 14, the Independence Party of Minnesota declared McMullin their presidential nominee.
GOP House breaks the tie
McMullin's chief strategist Joel Searby outlined the campaign strategy on August 22nd in a memo, the campaign plans to block Hillary Clinton from reaching 270 electoral votes, thus sending the election to the House of Representatives. According to Wikipedia, Searby believes that, “once in the GOP controlled House, against the backdrop of Trump and Clinton's deeply divisive positions and after a strong electoral college showing, we believe Evan's unifying message will prevail."
Destroying the Clinton and Trump campaigns was the original plan for the Deep State coup, but that didn’t work out when Trump managed to win the Electoral College vote. What we are experiencing today is the Deep State’s two-party handmaidens and the CIA controlled media’s propaganda in full force to enrage the population against their elected president.
Deep State paints President Trump as heartless monster for enforcing existing law
Upon the release of the Inspector General’s 500+ page report detailing the malfeasance of James Comey and the entire upper echelon of the FBI in regard to investigations against the top two contenders in the 2016 Presidential election, the Deep State’s media lap dogs began releasing highly emotionally charged, mostly fake reports and photos of immigrant children “ripped from their parents and placed in cages.”
The more damning the IG report got, the more outrageous and over-the-top the media’s rhetoric became, invoking comparisons to Nazi death camps. What could justify such hysteria? The biggest scandal in American history of a coordinated government sponsored Deep State coup against an elected American president.
As the disgusting entrails of the FBI’s deceit and criminal activities are laid bare for all to see, the Shiny Object Syndrome in the form of “immigrant children ripped from their mother’s arms” has been set in motion. What’s interesting as that the most vocal of critics screaming “Nazi” and “monster” supported those same tactics when it suited them. From Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone:
Trump's Family Separation Scandal Has Revealed Every Species of Hypocrite
Immigration hawks and War on Terror monsters alike are using President Trump's revolting present to expiate past sins. John McCain, in Arizona receiving treatment for brain cancer, tweeted about Donald Trump's barbarous immigration policy this week. "The administration's current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded," the senator wrote.
Those comments bring to mind a commercial John McCain made eight years ago. At the time, he was facing a tough primary challenge from Tea Party Republican J.D. Hayworth. In the ad, McCain is seen walking along Arizona's southern border with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, in the shadow of an enormous fence. McCain starts tsk-tsking about the wave of crime pouring into his state.
"Drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder?" McCain asks. "We're outmanned," the sheriff says. "Of all the illegals in America, more than half come through Arizona." McCain asks if they have "the right plan." The sheriff says, "You bring troops, state, county and local law enforcement together." "And complete the danged fence!" says McCain.
Sound familiar? "Complete the danged fence" even had a website to go along with it for a while, CompleteTheDangedFence.com. The Trump-era version is just a hashtag, but still. The heated controversy over Trump's awful family separation policy has been like one of those bug-zapping lights people stick next to pools – it's attracted virtually every species of hypocrite in American public life.
The most conspicuous and ridiculous of these are the hand-over-heart never-Trump Republicans who – after decades of pushing vicious anti-immigrant rhetoric themselves – are now coming out of the woodwork to talk about how mistreatment of the undocumented is contrary to "our principles and values."
It's not easy to pick which wall-humping Republican's hug-an-immigrant statement is the worst, but one from Ted Cruz stands out. The proud champion of the basketball "ring" said: "All of us who are seeing images of these children being pulled away from moms and dads in tears are horrified. This has to stop … We should keep children with their parents. Kids need their moms. They need their dads."
Ted Cruz was the guy who just two years ago ran for president with the plan of wiping the uninspiring Republican primary field of Jebs and Lindseys and Marcos by being the meanest of the lot on immigration… When Trump started to look like a real winner in late 2015, Cruz – in a move he himself was probably shocked he had to make – recalibrated his already nasty immigration stance to be more hardcore. He called for a tripling of border agents and "a wall that works."
He even brought immigrant children into the debate, echoing Trump by saying it was "well past time to end birthright citizenship…" If we're getting more aggressive immigration policy now, it could easily be because the likes of Cruz have made no secret of wanting to take back Trump's base by reclaiming the meanest-of-all mantle on immigration.
The controversy over Trump's policy illustrates another ugly subtext to immigration as a political issue. The reality is that many – if not most – Americans have long been comfortable with all sorts of cruelties, so long as they don't have to look at them.
Trump's policies are extreme, but the government separating children from parents is not a new thing: Not on the border, not in immigrant communities and not in poor neighborhoods – where women on public assistance live in regular dread of state inspectors taking their kids away over picayune welfare violations or complaints from neighbors.
It's also true abroad, where voters have spent over a decade now tacitly signing off on a whole kit-bag of evil (but mostly invisible) War on Terror policies, many of which involve breaking up families without any kind of due process. If an Afghan family is separated in the forest and nobody sees it, did it really happen?
That's why it was more than a little nauseating when former CIA chief Michael Hayden posted a picture of Auschwitz amid this recent scandal, writing, "Other governments have separated mothers and children." You might remember Hayden as one of the first people to say out loud that indefinite detention of suspects in the War on Terror was not feasible. Better alternatives existed, he said.
"We have made it so politically dangerous and so legally difficult that we don't capture anyone anymore," Hayden said in 2012, about detention. "We take another option, we kill them. Now. I don't morally oppose that."
Those scenes are the latest in a long series of developments, under which politicians like McCain and Cruz and Dick Cheney, along with officials like Hayden, have gradually normalized the idea of human rights abuses as solutions to political problems. Now they're all hiding behind someone else's scandal. America's manufacturing sector may be failing, but we still produce plenty of hypocrites.
Make no mistake about it, this is not about “children being separated from their parents” if it were the outrage would not be limited to those who illegally cross our borders. No, the outrage of children being separated from their parents would transverse the globe encompassing children being separated from their parents in Gaza, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Ukraine and the myriad of other countries where the Americans, British, French, Saudi’s and other Western countries bomb indiscriminately killing entire families.
This is not about the children being separated from their parents, this is about cheap labor being separated from the campaign mega donors of the politicians. The politicians do not represent the interests of the American people they represent the interests of their major donors who demand cheap labor. From Pew Research:
Immigrants don’t make up a majority of workers in any U.S. industry
All told, immigrants made up 17.1% of the total U.S. workforce in 2014, or about 27.6 million workers out of 161.4 million. About 19.6 million workers, or 12.1% of the total workforce, were in the U.S. legally; about 8 million, or 5%, entered the country without legal permission or overstayed their visas. (Roughly 10% of unauthorized immigrants have been granted temporary protection from deportation and eligibility to work under two federal programs, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and Temporary Protected Status…)
To get a sense of the work immigrants to the U.S. do most frequently, we relied on 2014 workforce estimates by Pew Research Center. The estimates, based on augmented data from the Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey, cover all workers ages 16 and older who reported being in a civilian industry or occupation, including both lawful and unauthorized immigrants.
Private households were the most immigrant-intensive “industry” in 2014. Of the 947,000 people working for private households, 45% were immigrants, with lawful immigrants slightly outnumbering unauthorized immigrants. The industries with the next-biggest shares of immigrant workers were textile, apparel and leather manufacturers (36%) and the farm sector: A third (33%) of the nearly 2 million agriculture workers in 2014 were born outside the U.S…
The overall U.S. workforce – U.S.-born and immigrant (both lawful and unauthorized) – is concentrated in a relatively small number of industries. But while the 10 biggest-employing industries are the same for U.S.-born and lawful immigrant workers (and in almost the same order), the employment pattern among unauthorized immigrants is markedly different.
By contrast, the top industry for unauthorized immigrant workers was construction, which included 16% of all unauthorized immigrant workers. Construction was followed by eating and drinking places, which had 14% of unauthorized immigrant workers, and administrative and support services (9%). Those three industries each included between 5% and 7% of lawful immigrants…
More than half of all unauthorized immigrant workers in 2014 were in just four occupational groups: construction and extraction; building and grounds cleaning and maintenance; food preparation and serving; and production.
Views on immigration’s impact on U.S.-born workers have shifted significantly over the past decade, according to a Pew Research Center survey released last year. Americans then were almost evenly divided, with 42% saying the growing number of immigrants working in the U.S. helps American workers and 45% saying it hurts workers who were born in the U.S. In 2006, 55% said having more immigrants hurt U.S. workers, with just 28% saying it helped them.
The politicians’ hearts bleed not for the children but for their corporate masters who control our government. Politicians are installed in office by the Mega Donors who finance their campaigns and illegally line their pockets and provide future post-politics employment for life. That is who they serve.

Voters don’t matter: GOP leaders “hell-bent” on shoving DACA amnesty down our throats
Tens of millions of Americans who believe that Washington has long ceased to represent them and the best interests of our country, turned out in droves to support Donald J. Trump for president in the 2016 election. That’s because in addition to his promises to cut government regulations, rebuild the military, and dramatically improve the economy — all of which he’s done — POTUS Trump was the only candidate pledging to enforce all immigration laws while calling for a wall along the U.S.-Southwest border.
Trump won “blue wall” states in the upper Midwest — Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania… But despite that — and despite the fact that 80 percent of Americans oppose “sanctuary cities,” while less than 30 percent want amnesty for DACA aliens — RINO Republican leaders are siding with their big corporate donors over the will of the people on the issue. Again…
In an interview with Breitbart Radio, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said Republican leadership, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan, are “hell-bent” on pushing through amnesty for DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — a policy implemented unconstitutionally via executive order by President Obama. King said not only are GOP leaders trying to push through an amnesty bill that does not reduce legal immigration, but they are also working to kill an amnesty discharge petition.
Majority of Americans oppose amnesty
King noted that Republicans in favor of granting amnesty to some 1 million or so “dreamers” — an objective of Democrats — have been told by donors that they won’t receive any campaign contributions if they oppose amnesty legislation. King said that this is one of the biggest reasons why he won’t support the bill, though he admitted it’s “one of the reasons that others might.”
His comments come as more Republicans, each of whom claim they are ‘pro-business,’ have signed onto a discharge petition that would force a floor vote on an expansive amnesty plan. King and other ‘pro-constituent’ and ‘pro-America’ Republicans say that that petition could eventually lead to a massive “DREAM Act” amnesty that would then grant it to a very large percentage of the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. according to various estimates…
Meanwhile, according to a very recent CBS News/YouGov survey, most likely voters — 56 percent — in midterm swing districts say that immigration is making American life “worse.”
Every race, age, and sex believe immigration has had a more negative impact on their community than positive. There is no better example of congressional tone-deafness and disconnect from voters than the issue of immigration — legal and illegal.
That is what the shiny object of “immigrant children being separated from their families” is really about. It’s about amnesty for cheap labor demanded by the special interests that fund the political campaigns of the Democrats and Republicans. If the illegal workforce were to leave or be curtailed, those businesses would have to hire Americans, their worst fear. From USA Today:
Don't help only illegal immigrants
The discharge petition effort is not primarily about helping DACA recipients. Both major sides in the House favor permanent legalization for young adults who illegally crossed the border or overstayed visas as minors. But on one side are Republicans who believe that a legalization bill that adds competitors to the legal workforce should also show concern for American workers by preventing hiring of future illegal workers and by reducing some other immigration.
On the other side are the discharge participants who focus on helping only illegal immigrants — and the employers who hire them. Legalization could have passed months ago if discharge signers had been willing to support the “Goodlatte bill.” But they have rejected that compromise, which not only provides the legalization but also mandates E-Verify for all employers to reduce illegal hiring. And it ends the chain migration and visa lottery channels that pour foreign workers into this country.
The reforms in the Goodlatte bill — introduced by four House chairmen — are supported not only by the majority of House Republicans but also by large margins of likely midterm voters. Components have been subjected to hearings and committee votes.
The discharge effort is an end run to do the bidding of corporate lobbies that want to protect the ability of outlaw employers to hire an illegal workforce. And they want the government to continue to issue more than 1 million lifetime immigrant work permits each year to allow employers to avoid having to recruit from the huge non-working U.S. population, which is disproportionately American minorities and people without college degrees.
First-quarter government data reveal about 50 million working-age Americans who have no job. Millions more Americans who do have jobs are stuck in stagnant and even declining incomes. Discharge petition signers would increase their labor competition; Goodlatte bill supporters would give them some relief.
That so-called “crisis” on the border could have been solved long ago. What is going on with family separation is nothing new, it has been going on during the W. Bush Administration and the Obama Administration. The only thing new is that the recently released Inspector General’s report poses an imminent danger to the Deep State government that has usurped power from the elected government. The immigration “crisis’ is nothing more than a shiny object thrown out to distract the attention of the American people.
The danger is real to our freedom and way of life. The shadow government that was installed during the Bush and Obama Administrations threatens our Democratic Republic. From WRKO:
FBI framed Trump for Russia collusion
Obamagate is the greatest scandal in modern U.S. history. And the mainstream media knows it. This is why they are desperately trying to ignore it.
It won’t work. Washington is circling the wagons, trying to protect the FBI from the growing scandal. Yet, the media-deep state conspiracy to implement a silent coup against President Trump is slowly being exposed by courageous congressional investigators. Trump is rightly calling the five months of missing text messages between top FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress and FBI lawyer Lisa Page one of the “biggest stories” of our time…
FBI informants have now revealed that a “secret society” at the Justice Department and FBI was established the day after Trump’s election victory. Its goal: to oust the president from power—a silent coup to overturn the will of the American people. At a meeting in deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s office, Strzok and Page, ferocious Hillary partisans, spoke about the need to “have an insurance policy” to remove Trump from office in case he won.
Strzok later admitted that then-FBI Director James Comey went to President Obama to brief him on the criminal conspiracy. In other words, a cabal of top FBI and DOJ officials, in collusion with Obama, sought to nullify a duly elected president.
This coup attempt was done by weaponizing the nation’s leading law enforcement and intelligence agencies… Its targets were Trump, his family and inner circle, as well as Trump Tower. Under Obama, the FBI was turned into a modern-day KGB, a police state that engaged in illegal surveillance and rampant criminal activity to try to prevent an opposition candidate from winning the 2016 election.
It’s no coincidence that the dates, Dec. 14, 2016-May 17, 2017, the FBI claims the Strzok-Page texts simply “disappeared” is when the illegal leaks from the deep state to the media were at their height. This is when the silent coup—the attempt to frame Trump as having colluded with Russia during the campaign—was effectively implemented.
Everything of consequence took place during those five months… During this entire time, the lead FBI investigator on Trump-Russia collusion was Strzok. Those texts did not magically disappear. The FBI destroyed them in order to protect the bureau’s corrupt leadership. This is not only obstruction of justice, but a chilling abuse of power.
At its heart, Obamagate is about the creation of a shadow government. During the Obama years, pivotal American institutions, such as the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, the NSA and the IRS were corrupted, compromised and politicized…
The Strzok-Page missing text messages are akin to the Nixon tapes. They are the smoking gun. Watergate was about the cover-up of a third-rate burglary that sought to wiretap the Democratic National Committee. Obamagate is about something much worse: The transformation of the FBI into a partisan weapon to first spy on and then frame a political opponent as an agent of a hostile foreign power in order to execute a slow-motion coup. This is more than morally grotesque and blatantly criminal. It is treason and sedition.
Congress and their staffers who have legal oversight of FBI threatened by Rosenstein
This shadow government believes it is above the law. The Deep State has not only refused to release records to congress regarding their illegal activities but Assistant Attorney Rod Rosenstein has threatened members of congress and their staff if they carry out their constitutional requirement of oversight. From Catherine Herridge at Fox News:
Rosenstein threatened to 'subpoena' GOP-led committee in 'chilling' clash over records, emails show
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to “subpoena” emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails reviewed by Fox News documenting the encounter and reflecting what aides described as a "personal attack…"
“The DAG [Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein] criticized the Committee for sending our requests in writing and was further critical of the Committee’s request to have DOJ/FBI do the same when responding,” the committee's then-senior counsel for counterterrorism Kash Patel wrote to the House Office of General Counsel. “Going so far as to say that if the Committee likes being litigators, then ‘we [DOJ] too [are] litigators, and we will subpoena your records and your emails,’ referring to HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] and Congress overall.”
A second House committee staffer at the meeting backed up Patel’s account, writing: “Let me just add that watching the Deputy Attorney General launch a sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight was astonishing and disheartening. ... Also, having the nation’s #1 (for these matters) law enforcement officer threaten to 'subpoena your calls and emails' was downright chilling.”
The committee staffer noted that Rosenstein’s comment could be interpreted as meaning the department would “vigorously defend a contempt action" -- which might be expected. But the staffer continued, "I also read it as a not-so-veiled threat to unleash the full prosecutorial power of the state against us…”
A DOJ official told Fox News that Rosenstein “never threatened anyone in the room with a criminal investigation.” The official said the department and bureau officials in the room “are all quite clear that the characterization of events laid out here is false,” adding that Rosenstein was responding to a threat of contempt.
The Deep State is run by psychopaths with no conscience and no morals. We’ve seen it at Abu Ghraib, we’ve seen it in “Shock and Awe” in Iraq, we’ve seen it in the arming of terrorists in Syria, we’ve seen it in the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine, we’ve seen it in the absolute destruction of the wealthiest, most democratic African government of Libya and we see it in the destruction of our own government in America. The war on President Trump is the Deep State of psychopath’s last hoorah. From State of the Nation:
SPYGATE: The Reign of the Psychopaths is Over
Cabal of psychopaths
What we’re really dealing with here — on planet Earth — is an incorrigible and criminal cabal of clinically insane psychopaths. These are the people who literally run the world. They also own and operate on every square inch of the planet. Only with this factual understanding can anyone come close to correctly comprehending the true nature of the ongoing war being waged against humanity 24/7.
“THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO EFFECTIVELY DEAL WITH A CRIMINALLY INSANE PSYCHOPATH—YOU DON’T!”
What makes the preceding advice so very wise, important and true?
Groupings of psychopaths mutually reinforce each other’s psychopathy in such a way that they take each other on a downward spiral of evil intentions and odious deeds. There is nothing they will not do to outdo each other’s malevolence. NOTHING!
A good example of this is how the Sicilian mafia came to be so vicious. The top mafioso got to the top of the heap by his extreme cruelty and criminality that no one else dared to do or challenge. Fear became the primary control mechanism of the capo di tutti capi of the Cosa Nostra. In this way, all the capo’s underlings and henchmen are compelled to strictly follow orders or risk a fate much worse than death.
What’s the point?
The real problem that the United States of America is now facing is that the U.S. Federal Government has been hijacked by a gang of criminally insane psychopaths.
Rule of law
Although very few are really aware of this worldwide predicament, the rule of law has morphed into the rule of the jungle. The pervasive psychopathic leadership is just very proficient at hiding this grim reality. In so doing, the baddest of the bad guys are able to effectively run their tyrannies wherever and whenever they choose to…
This is precisely why the US government is currently embroiled in a massive, monstrous and unparalleled constitutional crisis. The Swamp inside the Beltway is being ever-so-slowly drained as the swamp creatures are being forced into rearing their ugly heads.
But how did it ever get to be this way in the “the land of the free and the home of the brave”?... PONERIZATION: How the American Republic was taken over by political cliques of criminally insane psychopaths… There is no better example of the crazies running the asylum than SPYGATE.
We’re talking about the craziest psychopaths within the American psychopathocracy who were willing to do just about anything to, first, fix a U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton and, then, to execute a soft coup against the Trump administration.
The very same psychopaths are still out there fomenting a violent coup d’état against President Trump, although they are being much more careful with their seditious implementation plans. This has never happened before, at least not in broad daylight. Yes, General Smedley Butler exposed a coup plot in 1933 but it was shut down post-haste.
In fact, rogue elements within the U.S. Intelligence Community, and there are many, have been working triple time to overthrow Trump. Retired intel officials and other spooks have been especially aggressive in their encouragement of a mutiny in the West Wing. Traitors such as John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden and Michael Morrell have acted with apparent impunity as they promote regime change in Washington.
Of course, this is what SPYGATE was all about. The leaders of the FBI, DOJ and CIA conspired to rig the 2016 election, and then used the mainstream media to sabotage President-elect Trump’s transition, and now attempt to impeach him via false charges conjured up by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Even DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is abetting the ongoing schemes of this treasonous cabal.
Deep State must be exposed in its entirety and removed from the affairs of this nation. This cannot be done without a critical mass of the U.S. citizenry lighting their torches and picking up their pitchforks. The psychopaths simply will not go without a fight.
Let’s go get ’em … before they get US!
Make no mistake about it, the Deep State has been caught red handed, the entire Trump-Putin collusion investigation is based on lies. The Trump Campaign was spied on and sabotaged at every stage in order to ensure that the Deep State would maintain control over the American government. The entire shiny object of “immigrant children being separated from their parents” is a distraction to divert the American people’s attention to the real and present danger to their Democratic Republic.
The biggest scandal in the history of the American Republic is unfolding before our eyes, the use of government power to imprison political enemies of the State in order to control elections in America. The Deep State will not go quietly into the night. The Deep State will continue to lie, distract and threaten anyone who threatens their status quo. We the people must regain control over our country. God Speed.
