Authored by Doug “Uncola” Lynn via TheTollOnline.com,
Beginning in May of this year (for April), this blogger had the idea to track linked internet headlines from various link-aggregating websites as documentedÂ transitionsÂ and arrange them into catalogued anthologies. The goal was to map a veritableÂ road, if you will, on the way toward futureÂ revelations.
Beyond that, the series ofÂ encyclopedic atomizationÂ was meant for posterity, a means to compare tracking from previous months, and assembled in outright defiance against increasing internet censorship andÂ memory-holedÂ search engine results.
Predictably, like dots formulated into patterns on a grid, or in a matrix, so too have trends come into better focus as we continue our monthly trek toward the 2018 Midterm Elections.
AsÂ stated by this blogger before, President Donald Trump is the manifestation of one of the following three possibilities:
A.) The Real Thing
B.) Serving the agenda of the global financial elite unwittingly
C.) Controlled opposition as aÂ Judas GoatÂ orÂ Trojan Horse
IfÂ BÂ orÂ C, he was installed to bleed the remaining air out of the brake-lines before the big stop; a last gasp, if you will.Â Americaâs death rattle.
IfÂ AÂ â then Trump is truly at war against the Financial-Military Industrial Complex, and if he loses, then the musical artist Frank Zappa described what will happen next:
The illusion of freedom will continue as long as itâs profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.
â Frank Zappa
Therefore, if the war in government isÂ real, the midterm elections would represent aÂ fork-in-the road, so to speak.Â If the Republicans do well, Trump could (possibly) be provided some breathing room to continue with his professed agenda.Â If, on the other hand, the Democrats win big â it would be perceived as a mandate against Trump, and ensure a further loss of support for the President in the GOP; even as congressional impeachment proceedings commence in the House.
In any case, while traveling toward the approachingÂ fork-in-the-road, it should be no surprise that July was a very eventful month.Â In fact, the overall itemized compilation was likely too sizable (over 8,000 words) for most web surfers to process adequately and enjoyably during the course of their busy day.
Consequently, and with that in mind, the FULL LIST for July 1-31, 2018 was compiled andÂ placed right hereÂ Â should anyone wish to take the time to read it all through.
Accordingly, the items below represented what I consider to be the most identifiable 95 signposts on our mid-summerâs journey to either making America Great Again or into a neo-Orwellian hell on earth.
Again, for the readerâs convenience, the revelations are sorted into the same category headings that were utilizedÂ last monthÂ andÂ the month prior.Â For those blog-rolling on a breakneck blitz and wanting to bypass the piddling incidentals, there are some concluding comments and questions at the very end:
The American Experiment
(Short List # / Full List #)
1 / 4.)Â Two days prior to the Fourth of July, vandals threw a brick through the window of the Nebraska Republican Partyâs headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska andÂ spray-painted âABOLISH ICEâÂ in blood-red capital letters there.
2 / 7.)Â In the Democratic National Committeeâs annual Fourth of July statement, chairman Tom Perez saidÂ âour most fundamental values are under attackâÂ and lamented the âproblemsâ ofÂ low-paying jobs, health care, immigration, injustice to people of color and members of the LGBTQ community, a recent Supreme Court decision on public unions,Â and the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. He also expressed concerns thatÂ âthousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border,â and added:
At our highest court, workersâ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and womenâs right to choose is under threat like never before.
3 / 9.)Â In the aftermath of Rep. Maxine Waters calling forÂ unwarranted harassment of Trump administration officials, Â nearly 200 black female leaders and allies wrote a letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer excoriating them for their âfailureâ to protect Rep. Maxine Waters fromÂ âunwarranted attacks from the Trump administration and others in the GOPâ.
4 / 11.)Â A Reuters/Ipsos opinionÂ showed immigration as a top issueÂ for U.S. voters, with the economy as a close second.
5 / 14.)Â Texas land owners reported receiving letters from the government notifying them that their land will be surveyed forÂ âtactical infrastructure, such as a border wallâ.
6 / 15.)Â As President Trump nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court who believes judges mustÂ âinterpret the U.S. Constitution as writtenâÂ and ânot make lawâ, the Democrats, in turn, vowedÂ âthe fight of a lifetimeâÂ to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court.Â Senate Democrats later conspired inÂ a plan to stallÂ Kavanaughâs nomination process.
7 / 18.)Â Republican alarm bells were sounded upon reports of Democrats havingÂ registered 12 million more voters.
8 / 19.)Â It was reported that aÂ huge child-sex-trafficking ring was exposedÂ by Trumpâs enforcement of the Zero-Tolerance border policy.

11 / 27.)Â Authorities in Sioux Falls, South Dakota arrested a 43-year-old man after they found explosive devices at his residence, as well as ammonium nitrate, aluminum powder, firearms, and multiple itemsÂ related to the anti-fascist militant group, Antifa.
12 / 28.)Â Students at Lee University in TennesseeÂ petitioned to override Vice President Mike Penceâs First Amendment rightÂ because they perceived his political views as being âat odds with Christian valuesâ and accused Pence of âoutright bigotry against the working and poor classes, the LGBTQI+ community, immigrants, and the black communityâ.
13 / 30.)Â AÂ report from the Migration Policy InstituteÂ Â found that 22% of the U.S. population does not speak English at home.
14 / 32.)Â Donald Trumpâs star on the Hollywood Walk of FameÂ was destroyed with a pickaxe.Â The stars of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and Kevin Spacey were not damaged in the least.

16 / 35.)Â According to a new analysis by David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report, the DemocratsÂ âremain substantial favorites for House controlâÂ because âRepublicans are defending 42 open or vacant seats, a record since at least 1930â.
17 / 36.)Â President TrumpÂ tweetedÂ that he would be willing to âshut downâ government if the Democrats did not give Republicans the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall.Â He added:

19 / 39.)Â There were reports of a violent Portland, Oregon Antifa cellÂ planning a âdirect confrontationâÂ with participants of an upcoming pro-Trump rally.
20 / 40.)Â Republican strategists claimed President TrumpâsÂ approval was sinkingÂ âin some educated, affluent congressional districts with lots of independent voters the party needs to hold the Houseâ.Â The âcurrent anguishâ of the Republican strategists was due to the fact they have swallowedÂ hook-line-and-sinkerÂ the Mainstream Mediaâs false narratives of âTrumpâs decision to separate families crossing illegally into the United Statesâ and âhis performance at the Helsinki summitâ.
Capitalism & Marxism
21 / 44.)Â Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman, Tom Perez, declared the Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Â to be theÂ future of the Democratic Party.
22 / 50.)Â The Census Bureau released data showing the U.S. merchandise trade deficit with China set a record through May,Â hitting $152,237,500,000Â for the first five months of 2018.

25 / 59.)Â After President Trump Tweeted thatÂ âChina, EU are manipulating their currenciesâÂ and thatÂ âFed âtightening now hurts all that we have doneâ,Â the U.S. dollar tumbled; because truth should be seen but not heard.Â Trump also added that âthe U.S. should be allowed to recapture what was lost due to illegal currency manipulation and BAD Trade DealsâÂ and said:
Debt coming due & we are raising rates â Really?
26 / 60.)Â As the Associated Press (AP) reported thatÂ Democratic socialism was surging in the age of Trump, former FBI Director, James Comey, implored his perceived saviors in the Democrat Party toÂ âdump the Socialist LeftâÂ because âAmericaâs great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadershipâ.
27 / 61.)Â In an interview on CNBC, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) said that Democrats will end the Trump tax cuts if they take power in November andÂ also promoted a 50% tax hike on American earners.
28 / 64.)Â Facebook stock entered bear market territory,Â losing 20 percent off its 52-week highas the companyâs daily active users declined and its worldwide daily user growthÂ slid for its sixth straightÂ quarter. Â The more than 100 billion dollar rout was reported as theÂ biggest loss in stock market history.
29 / 65.)Â Unsurprisingly,Â The New York Times blamedÂ RussianÂ fake newsÂ and the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica (i.e. alleged scandal of data-harvesting on behalf of Donald Trump) for Facebookâs stock rout instead ofÂ the companyâs increasingly Orwellian inclinations.
30 / 68.)Â As Americaâs second-quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP)Â jumped 4.1%, The New York Times warned its readers: Â âdonât expect the boom to lastâÂ because the growth was skewed by âa surge in soybean shipmentsâ in advance of âPresident Trumpâs trade policiesâ.
31 / 75.)Â European Union leadersÂ announced that officials from the EU and ChinaÂ were coming together to strengthen and protect their international trade relationsÂ fromÂ Trumpâs âAmerica Firstâ agenda.

33 / 81.)Â The New York Times admitted that:Â âTrump Got From NATO Everything Obama Ever Asked Forâ.
34 / 83.)Â In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor in Scotland, President Trump named the European UnionÂ his âbiggest foe globally right nowâ.
35 / 87.)Â Knife attacks, gun attacks, rape attacks, and homicide,Â continued to rapidly riseÂ in England; quite possibly due in part to âLeftist London Mayor Sadiq Khanâ doing everything in his power to cut âpolice stop and search tacticsâ that have âunfairly targeted minority ethnic groupsâ before âreversing his stance as crime began to surgeâ.
36 / 88.)Â In response to Iranian President Rouhaniâs warning to U.S. President Donald Trump that hostile policies could lead to the âmother of all warsâ, Trump Tweeted back in all capital letters that Rouhani betterÂ stop the threats or suffer historic consequences;Â as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley,Â lowered the boom on Putin and put Iran on notice.
37 / 89.)Â Two days after he sent an all-caps warning of future conflict with Iran, President Donald TrumpÂ âtempered his threatening rhetoricâÂ and saidÂ âhis administration stands ready for Iran to come back to the negotiating tableâ.
38 / 91.)Â The EU chief caved-in to TrumpâsÂ art of the dealÂ andÂ pledged to lower trade barriers with the US.
39 / 95.)Â It was reported that âPresident Donald Trumpâs longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen,Â secretly recorded a conversationÂ with Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy modelâ. Â In response, TrumpÂ waived his attorney-clientÂ privilegeÂ on the secret recordings and Tweeted that heÂ âdid nothing wrongâ.

42 / 98.)Â President Donald Trumpâs longtime lawyerÂ Michael Cohen hired Lanny DavisÂ who once served as special counsel to former President Bill Clinton.
43 / 99.) President Trumpâs attorney and spokesman, Rudy Giuliani, said Trumpâs former attorney Michael CohenÂ should cooperate with federal investigators.
The President, Lawyers, Spies, & Media Lies
44 / 101.)Â Ten days after Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to release whatever evidence he had in the Russia investigation andÂ âfinish it the hell up because this country is being torn apartâ, Special Counsel Robert Mueller tapped even more prosecutors to help withÂ his growing Trump probe.Â According to Bloombergâs update on the inquisition of Trumpâs suspected treason with Russia:
âŠmore money is being spent on work done by permanent Department of Justice units than on Muellerâs own dedicated operation. The DOJ units spent $9 million from the investigationâs start in May 2017 through March of this year, compared with $7.7 million spent by Muellerâs team.
45 / 103.)Â In apparent âviolation of Justice Department policies and, perhaps, legal prohibitions on disclosure of grand jury secretsâ, claims were bolstered that AP reporters and FBI agentsÂ colluded in a conspiracyÂ against Trumpâs former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
46 / 106.)Â During Peter Strzokâs testimony to Congress, Jim Jordon (R-Ohio) got the former FBI agent to admit that the FBI received the Hillary Clinton Funded âGolden Showerâ dossier on TrumpÂ from the FBIâs Bruce OrrÂ (whose wife worked for Fusion GPS) â which was an astounding admission on internal collusion â before Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) interrupted the exchange.
47 / 107.)Â Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during the hearing with former FBI official, Peter Strzok, that the Inspector General discovered that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonâs emailsÂ were sent to a foreign entityÂ and that the FBI didnât follow-up on that finding.
48 / 108.)Â Furthermore, it was revealed that Strzok, himself, actually knew Clintonâs emails were in the hands of a foreign entity, that a whistleblower from the State Department tried delivering significant evidence in the Clinton email investigation which went nowhere, and that Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, was called four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, andÂ he never returned the call.
49 / 109.)Â In an effort to divert publicity away from the Capitol Hill testimony of disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok, and to subvert President Trumpâs efforts toward peace with Russia, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the Mueller InvestigationâsÂ single indictment of Twelve Russian intelligence officersÂ for alleged election hacking under President Obamaâs watch; even though,Â according to RosensteinÂ ,Â âno American was a knowing participantâÂ in the Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and there wasÂ âno allegation in the indictment of any effect on the outcome of the electionâÂ .
50 / 110.)Â Regarding the Russia indictment, President Trump Tweeted questions as toÂ âwhy didnât Obama do somethingâ, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September , before the electionâ.Â Trump alsoÂ Tweeted these questions:Â Â âWhere is the DNC Server, and why didnât the FBI take possession of it? Deep State?
51 / 111.)Â In the wake of Robert Muellerâs 29-page (evidence free) indictment of 12 Russians for election hacking, some in the media once more began toÂ question the extent of American involvement.
52 / 112.)Â The veteran GOP political operative, Roger Stone, saidÂ he was the âUS personâ mentionedÂ in the Mueller indictment of the 12 Russians.
53 / 113.)Â InitialÂ claims were made that Republicans were preparing toÂ impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod RosensteinÂ because they felt Rosenstein had âcontinually stonewalled their investigation into corruption at the FBIâ but Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) later ruled out the possibility of impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying there wasÂ ânot enough support for his ousterâ.
54 / 114.)Â In the aftermath of FBI agent Peter Strzokâs appearance before Congress, theÂ full Editorial Board of The Wall Street Journal said:Â âPresident Trump will have to declassify a host of documents if he wants Americans to learn the truth about what happened in 2016â.
55 / 120.)Â In the press conference following the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki, Trump shocked the Mainstream Media by againÂ raising legitimate (and still unanswered) questionsÂ regarding the Democratic National Committeeâs missing server and Hillary Clintonâs missing emails; as Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed U.S. intelligence agentsÂ funneled $400 Million to the Hillary Clinton Campaign.
56 / 121.)Â The AP later reported on TrumpâsÂ âweek of walk-backsâÂ on Russia and the Federal Reserve and cited the Russian general prosecutorâs office retraction of Vladimir Putinâs claims of his Helsinki reference to $400 million being funneled to Hillary Clinton because, according to the AP:Â Â âThe notion of a $400 million donation to the Democratâs campaign would be out of the questionâ.
57 / 122.)Â In the immediate aftermath of the Trump-Putin meeting, the Obama Administrationâs CIA director, John Brennan, charged that President Trumpâs post-summit press conference with Russia President Vladimir PutinÂ was an act of treason; as disgraced former FBI Director, James Comey,Â called for a coupÂ against the sitting president by means of patriots standing up and rejecting Trumpâs behavior.
58 / 123.)Â In a continuing effort to demonstrate his unquestionable professionalism and complete lack of bias, former FBI Director, James Comey, also Tweeted thatÂ âanyone voting Republican this fall is un-Americanâ.
59 / 125.)Â âJust days after special counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 Russian intelligence officials with directing a sprawling hacking effort aimed at swaying the 2016 electionâ andÂ âjust hours after President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putinâ, federal prosecutorsÂ charged an alleged Russian agent and âGun Rights Activistâ, named Maria Butina,Â for using the National Rifle Association (NRA) as a conduit to influence members of the Republican Party.Â It was later discovered that Butina hadÂ high-level contacts in Washington DC; even taking part in 2015 meetings between a visiting Russian official and two senior officials at the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury Department.
60 / 126.)Â In the wake of the Trump-Putin meeting, Russiaâs elite and media celebrated the meeting as victory for Putin andÂ âan end to the Westâs attempt to isolate Russiaâ, as U.S. cable news networks sawÂ âthe apocalypseâ, Trump as aÂ worse-case-scenarioÂ Russian mole, and Trumpâs performance as an act that will âLive in InfamyâÂ as much as Pearl Harbor or Kristallnacht.
61 / 132.)Â During a Q&A with CNNâs Lester Holt at the Aspen Security Forum, FBI Chief Christopher WrayÂ threatened to quitÂ if Trump invited Russian agents to the U.S.Â and said:
I do not believe Special Counsel Mueller is on a witch hunt. I think it is a professional investigation conducted by a man Iâve known to be a straight shooter.
62 / 137.)Â As it was announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would give Democratic lobbyist, Tony Podesta, immunity to testify against Trumpâs former campaign chair, Paul Manafort,Â claims were madeÂ that the Deep State wasÂ âusing the Mueller probe to protect Clinton insiders from criminal investigationâ.
63 / 139.)Â An author by the name of Tim Wiener, who won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for reporting and writing on American intelligence,Â wrote the following in a Reuters commentary:
âŠTrump has made real enemies in the realm of American national security. He has struck blows against their empire. One way or another, the empire will strike back.
64 / 140.)Â The Wall Street JournalÂ identified former CIA Director John BrennanÂ as anÂ âObama-Clinton partisanâÂ whoÂ âwas pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to actâÂ andÂ who âthen took the lead on shaping the narrative that Russia was interfering in the electionâŠ which quickly evolved into the Trump-collusion narrativeâ.
65 / 141.)Â Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted in a CNN interview that formerÂ President Obama instigated the ongoing investigationsÂ into Donald Trump and those in his orbit.
66 / 142.)Â In an example of apparent selective cooperation, the Department of JusticeÂ released a heavily redacted copyÂ of the Carter Page FISA warrant application and several renewals to The New York Times, which accused Page of being a Russian spy; even though Page hasnât been charged in the nearly two years since the application was filed with any of the allegations contained therein.
67 / 143.)Â The National Reviewâs Andrew McCarthy described why the FISA applications on Carter Page confirmed theÂ FBIâs reliance on the unverified Steele Dossier.
68 / 145.) As the DoJ released the redacted FISA applications on former Trump aide Carter Page,Â President Trump TweetedÂ that itÂ was âLooking more & more like the Trump Campaign for President was illegally being spied upon (surveillance) for the political gain of Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNCâ, before Republican Senator Marco RubioÂ refuted Trumpâs contentionsÂ by telling CBSâs âFace the Nationâ that heÂ âwouldnât consider that spying on a campaignâ.Â Rubioâs soundbite refutation was then conveniently proliferated all throughout the mainstream media to counter the reporting of Trumpâs Tweet on Spygate.
69 / 146.)Â Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said during a Fox News Sunday interview that President Donald TrumpâsÂ advisers should consider leaving the White HouseÂ if Trump âcontinues to publicly disparage the nationâs intelligence community and cast doubt on the evidence that Russia interfered in the 2016 electionâÂ before saying:Â âif there were any evidence that President Trump committed any crime with regard to Russia,Â [the Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee]Â Adam Schiff would have leaked itâ.
70 / 147.)Â It was reported that President Trump was looking intoÂ revoking the security clearancesÂ of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, including former FBI DirectorÂ James Comey, former Deputy FBI DirectorÂ Andrew McCabe, former CIA DirectorÂ John Brennan, former National Security AdviserÂ Susan RiceÂ and former Director of National SecurityÂ Michael HaydenÂ (who worked under President George W. Bush).Â Of course, Congress pushed backÂ against revoking the clearances.
71 / 149.)Â The New York Times reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was now examining President Trumpâs tweets in aÂ wide-ranging Obstruction of Justice inquiry.Â But the times did not identify Mueller in that article as the man who delivered highly enriched stolenÂ uranium to Russia in 2009 on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
72 / 150.)Â Pursuant to # 53 / 113 above, RepublicansÂ began impeachment proceedingsÂ against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before backing down once again; this time sayingÂ âcontempt charges will doâ.
73 / 153.)Â As the New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger warned President Trump about his âdivisive but increasingly dangerousâ language that could generateÂ âpotentialâ violence against reporters, it was reported that The New York Times hadÂ ignored over 538 violent attacksagainst Trump supporters since the 2016 election season.
74 / 154.)Â In another Tweetstorm, President Donald Trump challenged Special CounselÂ Robert Muellerâs âconflicts of interestâÂ and questioned why Mueller wasnâtÂ âlooking at all of the criminal activity & real Russian Collusionâ by the Democrats.
Guns R Us
75 / 157.)Â Just as a headlined-link on The Drudge Report revealed porn websites asÂ dominating online traffic rankingsÂ for all internet categories in United States, the World Health Organization (WHO)Â declared sex addiction a mental-health disorderÂ termedÂ âcompulsive sexual behaviourâ.
76 / 158.)Â It was reported that the United States, under United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley,Â had signed on to a measureÂ to track every gun in America.
77 / 159.)Â Ontario police identified the man responsible for a shooting rampage in Torontoâs Greektown as Faisal Hussain. The Islamic State (ISIS)Â claimed responsibility for the shooting.

78 / 160.)Â Since the tragic shooting in Parkland Florida in February 2018, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence has tracked and recorded a whoppingÂ 55 new gun control measures in 26 states.
Big Brother Cometh
79 / 162.)Â Because a Democratic Party caucus server wasÂ replaced by a look-alike, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) stated there was âno evidenceâ that house computer systems were compromised by Pakistani-American information technology worker Imran Awan.Â The judge presiding over the case was Tanya Chutka, who wasÂ appointed by ObamaÂ after years of contributing to him, was a partner at a very Clinton-friendly law firm, and her husband was also appointed by Obama to the D.C. Superior Court in 2011.
80 / 163.)Â On July 4th, 2018Â it was reportedÂ that a Facebook algorithm flagged the Declaration of Independence asÂ hate speech. Ten days later, Facebookâs non-biased algorithms alsoÂ censored a new gospel song, entitled âWhat Would Heaven Look Likeâ, forÂ political content.
81 / 165.)Â It was revealed that Facebook uses foreign state-run news outlets to online fact-check U.S.Â âconservative sites into oblivionâ.
82 / 167.)Â In the aftermath of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)Â claiming thatÂ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had âpersonally redacted information and threatened House Intelligence Committee staffersâ and Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert telling a TV morning show that he believed government personnel working for Deputy Attorney General Rod RosensteinÂ were spying on his office, NBC NewsÂ reported the following:
Powerful GOP Rep. Jim Jordan accused of turning blind eye to sexual abuse as Ohio State wrestling coach
âItâs sad for me to hear that heâs denying,â said one former wrestler. âI donât know why he would, unless itâs a cover-up.â
83 / 168.)Â It was later reported that the law firm investigating the accusations against Jim Jordan wereÂ also involved in the FISA abuse scandalÂ by assisting both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to fund the now discredited Steele Dossier.
84 / 173.)Â After the U.S. Department of LaborâsÂ Bureau of Labor Statistics announcedÂ that Hispanic unemployment in the United States had reached its lowest level ever, in the 45 years since the agency first started keeping records on the statistic, the findingsÂ were ignoredÂ by the Spanish television networks, Univision and Telemundo.
85 / 179.)Â Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney and lobbyist who has worked with a private investigative team to find the killer of DNC staffer, Seth Rich, claimed to have found a âcredibleâ witnessÂ who will identify the murderersÂ as âa current DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agentâÂ and aÂ âcurrent ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agentâ.
86 / 186.)Â LawmakersÂ clashed during a contentious hearingÂ over claims that social media platforms and tech companies are biased against conservative viewpoints.
87 / 188.)Â Â Rick Newman, a Senior Columnist for the Finance Division ofÂ 5th most visited online platform in the worldÂ said President Trump madeÂ âHillary Clinton and her husband Bill look like ethical exemplarsâÂ and lamentedÂ âTrumpâs knifing of American law-enforcement agencies, while on a podium at the Helsinki âsummitâ with American enemy Vladimir Putinâ.
88 / 190.)Â Just two days after Twitter told Congress that they arenât politically biased whenÂ censoring content, the online social media platform wasÂ caught censoring conservative journalistsÂ with site-wide shadowbans.
89 / 191.)Â Days later, it was again reported thatÂ Twitter was shadow-banning prominent RepublicansÂ including the RNC chair and Trump Jr.âs spokesman.
90 / 192.)Â President Donald Trump accused Twitter regarding the companyâs âdiscriminatory and illegal practice,â andÂ vowed in a tweet to âlook intoâ the matterÂ and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said he wasÂ looking at âlegal remediesâÂ to deal with Twitterâs censorship of conservatives.
91 / 193.)Â A study for the House Judiciaryâs Constitution & Civil Justice Subcommittee showedÂ that Facebook has eliminated 93% of trafficÂ to top conservative websites since the 2016 election.
92 / 195.)Â In early July,Â âit came out that among Facebookâs myriad algorithmically induced advertising categories was an entry for users whom the platformâs data mining systems believed might be interested in treason against their governmentâ,Â causing a contributor writing for Forbes Magazine to question if Facebook was theÂ âultimate government surveillance toolâ.
93 / 196.)Â New York Governor Andrew CuomoÂ revealed that facial recognition camerasinstalled at bridge and tunnel toll plazas across New York City were scanning every driverâs face and feeding them into a massive database.
94 / 198.)Â AÂ study revealed that immigrationÂ had received more airtime on the three broadcast evening news shows than any other policy topic during the 18 months of the Trump presidency withÂ 92% ârelentlessly hostile to the administrationâÂ andÂ âjust 8% positiveâÂ while all networks âvirtually ignored law enforcement or anyone harmed by illegal immigrationâ.
95 / 208.)Â Twitter hired academics from institutions including Oxford University and the University of Amsterdam to study the spread ofÂ âhate speechâ and combat âintolerant discourseâ. Of course, the woman selected to help Twitter develop the algorithm which will target the âhate speechâ was reported as aÂ hardcore leftist who hates President Donald Trump.
America continues to break apart as the Political Left grows increasingly unhinged and, now, more violent.Â Immigration and the battle for the Supreme Court further divide the country just as Socialism now threatens a burgeoning rift within the Democratic Party.
On the economic front, interest rates continued to rise as deficits soared and rumors of trade wars, and threats of literal wars, created a sense of impending unease around the world.
As the Political Left leveled accusations against Trump for alienating allies while coddling to Russiaâs Putin, Trumpâs domestic battle raged on across many fronts â from Cohen and sex crimes, to the ongoing work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney Rod Rosenstein as they continue to fabricate a political gallows and knot an imaginary rope into a legal noose around the Presidentâs neck.
Nevertheless, as the nation divides in two like Sean Hannityâs and Rachel Maddowâs childhood friends at a junior high dance, Big Brother runs forward, unencumbered, and with ever-acceleratingÂ speed; in an obvious race to the inevitable finish-line at the end of nowhere good.
In theÂ full compilation of 209 transitional revelations for July, and according to this blogger, 28 could be considered making America (and/or the world) great again, with 27 as being neutral or questionable, and 154 as representing the ever-accelerating slide into Orwellian hell.Â These counts were 32, 8, and 104Â last monthÂ and 40, 8, and 75, respectively,Â the month prior.
