False Narrative #One: America is a Democracy – False
True- America is a Constitutional Republic
Yes it is true that our constitution at the time of its inception, was muddied by corrupt slave owners, yet contrary to partisan politics we have actually come beyond this. The reason America became a Super Power is because our system of government IS UNIQUE; it is a brilliant system that rejects the “Might is Right” of the kings of old and is different from any other political constitution in the world. We allow our elected representative to govern ONLY with the consent of the governed. We are a nation rich in the heritage of LIBERTY.
America in 2016 rejected “Might is Right” in favor of rule of law, balance of power, consent of the governed and a rich history of freedom.
The MSM and some Liberals falsely equate Trump to Hitler. This could not happen in America UNLESS (as the Left sometimes wants) we trash the Constitution and a wimpy congress fails to do their job. It was only when “king” Obama began going rogue that he lost his mandate. Sadly. Congress stood by and let it happen.
In a Constitutional Republic the Executive is equal but not greater than Congress, equal but not greater than the Courts and in the final analysis all three are policed by the people.
We support the system because that is who we are, Americans.
False Narrative # Two
Hillary and the Democrats lost Election 2016 because of Russian Interference – False
Democratic leadership and the Main Stream Media are still having hissy-fits about Russia. They screamed for the better part of half a year about how they hated the FBI Director Comey. Then when Trump finally fired him, they protest and call foul. They are all over the band waves, reaffirming that Trump is bad, and Putin has horns. Their ugly, phobic emotionalism is truly ugly to watch. Could we please have just a little bit of reason?
So let us analyze #Russophobia and see what is REALLY going on?
On-going multiple investigations have shown no electoral collusion between Donald Trump & Putin. It is true that the everyday Russians favored Trump over Hillary and were dancing in the streets when Trump won in 2016. In this modern day where we have television and the Internet it would be impossible for the peoples of another country not to express an interest and choose a favorite in elections beyond their borders. Merkel’s Germany showed strong favoritism for Macron in the recent French election. A group of Germans even set up a social media strategy & a bucket of social media trolls in Germany ACROSS THE BORDER from France where the election was taking place. This group had full intent to influence the outcome of the French election. In addition Obama came out strongly in favor of Macron. No big deal. This is their right. In this digital day and age we can expect these things to happen. In America we allow people the POWER OF CHOICE even when they pass an opinion on OUR ELECTIONS. Foreign meddling in an election is a murky area and the question is where do we draw the line?
America and Russia (and China and to a lesser degree Japan) are trade opponents. They have been hacking each other for years for that is what spies do. No evidence has been presented to the public that proves in any way that this Russian hacking influenced the 2016 election. The election may have been influenced by the Wikileaks dump of DNC corruption yet Julian Assange has stated emphatically that this data did not come from Russia. (Even if it did, the importance here is the corruption, not the leak)
Take all the emotional rhetoric about Russia aside and we are left with #Russophobia rather than any true assessment that Russia, although not yet a free country, IS ANY KIND OF DANGER TO THE USA.
The LEFT lost the election in 2016 because America decided to keep its liberty and heritage and because Trump worked harder and ran the better campaign. That Hillary won the popular vote is even false. See below.
In this digital age where countries compete one against the other for trade advantage, to try to police hacking will be a lost cause. It is all part of the modern game. The technically adept put in controls and NOT GET HACKED. The DNC, SOROS and Hillary were grossly negligent with their digital data, with their emails and even with classified data.
America like its sister England operates under law. In these times of change Congress needs to revisit this area and craft a clear and simple bundle of relevant laws:
- Protecting the right of Americans and their allies to freely choose whatever party they want to support in their own or neighboring countries.
- Making insurrection a crime – orchestrating mass resistance to a duly elected government should be seen as legally unacceptable and a crime.
- Using foreign OR GLOBAL money to influence an election should be legally unacceptable and a crime.
As to the rest, this silly Russophobia is a lot of noise signifying nothing.
We draw the line when it comes to coercion. Force, and violence used to change the results of honest elections SHOULD BE A CRIME.
It should be a crime for anybody, foreign or national to organize and pay agitators to create anarchy? SOROS is the democratic puppet-master. George Soros has in fact crossed this legal line and is guilty of both these crimes, organizing to overthrow governments of sovereign nations, and using violence to create anarchy. Why is he still at large? He needs to be brought to justice.
My research does not show Russia (under Putin) being a danger to or in any way harming America. The research does, however, show that Putin has had the courage to declare GEORGE SOROS an International (financial) terrorist. Draw your own conclusions.
Does this perhaps explain the strange, ugly phobic behavior on the LEFT and in the Main Stream Media? In part It does explain the Media bias as this is a media monopoly controlled by the New World Order where George Soros is a kingpin player.
This still does not explain the Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Feinstein, and Kamala Harris’s toxic tantrums. It also does not explain Schumer’s Machiavellian efforts to control the Senate, leading out from a very feeble minority but mis-using the system to buy more freebies for his following; this why we have such an appalling debt. Schumer still seems to think government is here to coerce people who fail to see things his way. This is unamerican and persons of goodwill should speak out strongly against it.
This brings us to the last but one piece of the puzzle:
When Hilary lost, Democrats were given A HUGE PROBLEM WITH THEIR BASE . They had promised them they could have all sorts of freebies and then she lost and they failed to deliver. Is it any wonder the “useful idiots” are angry and ripe for anarchy and ready to turn on their leaders? From the democratic leadership point of view they have to have a scapegoat, be it Comey or Trump or even the far-fetched Russia.
Their target audience and actually what is dangerous to them is their own base.
And here is the last piece of the puzzle from election 2016: The truth is that Trump is the very best thing that ever happened to Main Stream Media. We are right now slap-bang in the middle of a Digital Revolution. Main Stream Media was losing revenue and influence AND TRUST hand over fist as more and more Americans going to smart-phones and computers to follow the news. No it wasn’t Trump undoing them, it was the new technology. Trump, came along as their savior. He injected a whole new level of propaganda-conflict into their narrative. MSM thrives on the political circus of conflict. Do you wonder they cling to their bias? TRUE or not true, this IS THEIR NEW NARRATIVE; Trump with the help of Russia, stole the election from Hillary.
They see it as their survival and if they say the mantra often enough I think they may even have begun to believe it. But it is false and you, astute reader, or you would not be following here, know that it is all about their whole new audience of useful idiots. They are paid to bash Trump by heavy investors like Soros and also by rich swamp-dweller advertisers. The democratic base of useful idiots, has become MSM’s new target audience at a time when their audience was dwindling. Because what they are doing is false and immoral this is just going to hasten their demise.
Let it play out. Seek your news on your computer and smart-phone. Like all coercive monopolies, MSM is trying to forcefully (using government) kill off competitors with their coercive Fake News narrative – also false. MSM has itself, become Fake News.

We are the last free people in the world and we nearly lost it in 2016?
Does it not place on each of us a unique responsibility to actually get it right.
False Narrative #Three
President Trump can go to war without consulting with Congress
True – but also not true.
Per the constitution, it is only Congress can declare war. Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war. Once declared it is the job of the President as Commander in Chief to direct the military.
There is good reason for this law: Only Congress has the resources to inspect, investigate.deliberate to find just cause.
Trump has clarified where he stands on foreign wars, he is NOT going to start any long-term war with Syria. However, he promises to always act quickly and decisively to prevent, deter and/or control weapons of mass destruction. After all if not he, who? Is this not the definition of responsibility?
Here is the law that covers Trump’s recent war acts.
Presidents are permitted (legally) to strike quickly & decisively when deemed necessary. Under the provisions of the War Powers Resolution (WPR), however, presidents are required to notify Congress within 48 hours of the onset of US military involvement. Then they have 60 days to get formal authorization from Congress. If they fail to do so, they must cease operations within 30 days. Without this authorization Congress has no business funding the war. This Federal Law was passed with a two thirds majority at a time (1973) when Congress still had balls overriding a presidential veto. (Nixon)
There is a lot of conflicting data on Syria; Assad has denied he engaged in chemical warfare; as he was winning his war in Syria and gaining International support for the sovereignty of his nation, any reasonable person is left with questions. What we do know is that one of his planes was sent to bomb the rebel camp. We do also know the White Helmets (reporting the attack) were not wearing chemical protective gear which begs the question, was the harmful agent the deadly Sarin as claimed? We also know that a bunch of children were kidnapped by rebels (sick) from a nearby school. What we do not know is if these were the children seen by Ivanka & Trump on TV. Were these poor chilren but pawns in an international propaganda game, another justification for another ongoing regime change war in the Middle East?
In this digital age disinformation has been elevated to a satanic art.
The contrary data aside, this Syrian catastrophe is happening on Assad’s watch. If he truly cares, as he claims he does, he will bring his country back to order. Maybe the International community should try to help him, rather than engage or push for regime change?
Note: The first first job of a president is to keep the citizens safe. The second job is to bring order.
And so we we come back full circle to the definition of responsibility – in Syria, if not Assad, who? Wise for us to remember Libya where Obama illegally engaged in a war of regime change; here there is still chaos and the horrific human slave trade is starting up again.
The Tragedy of War
False Narrative #Four
Planned Parenthood – False
This is confused thinking.
Many of the rights demanded by the Liberals like free healthcare, free education through college and a woman’s right to an abortion have been given them by globalists like Obama or suggested by socialists like Bernie Sanders. In 2016 America rejected both agendas. The global effort to reduce the world population underlies their funding of Planned Parenthood.
At a recent town hall meeting Jeff Flate wasted a perfect opportunity to put matters into perspective. He was assaulted by a pretty sixteen year old demanding her “woman’s rights” This should have been his answer:
“I do understand how you feel and I can agree that it is your body and your life; the uncomfortable truth, however is that you have no right to indiscriminate sex. If you make a baby out of wedlock, there are consequences and you cannot foist these consequences on the state or the nation. It is immoral to ask the taxpayers of America to be complicit or to fund your promiscuous sexual habits.”
The Senator did not handle her well, nor did he bring the bellicose meeting to order or understanding; Flate has always been a bit wobbly on his conservative values.
False Narrative # Five
Trump and his team are Racists – False
“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make our world safe for diversity.” – John F. Kennedy
Trump has employed persons of every race, pays women as much or more than men, He is in no way a bigot. Where he clashes with the LEFT is that he expects all Americans to learn a trade, get a job, support their families and contribute to the nation. He expects Americans to follow the law. He sees all men as equal, provided they are legal and no man is more equal than others.
We have serious situation in America and it is a situation that was not of Trump’s making. There is much lawlessness South of the Border and we do not want it spilling into America. Crime from unvetted immigrants and refugees has become a problem to the safety of America. We are a nation of immigrants but we reserve the right to choose our immigrants, with a view to having them learn to love and absorb our culture, learn our laws and language and to assimilate.
We have eleven million plus immigrants living illegally in America and until the wall is built more are pouring in every day. More than half of these people came here to escape poverty or crime in Mexico (or more recently are coming from other Latin American countries) The real problem is in Mexico. Beautiful country, same continent ask yourself why is Mexico poor and America rich? They don’t have and honor our constitution.
The solution is not for us to accept these people in our country for they threaten our safety and are a welfare burden. The sane and the compassionate solution is for America to teach Mexico how to control their drugs and crime and to show them how to put in a workable system of government with a balance of power and rule of law. The real solution is to help Latinos from across the border recover a true work ethic. The best solution is to teach them gratitude and how to learn.
Trump did not create the illegal problem, yet he has been willing to face it and handle it. Congress makes the laws, the judges interpret the laws, and the President exists to enforce the laws. Trump may be the first president in a long time doing his job.
Illegal Latinos will have to go home, and they can come back, but legally. They will have to prove no criminal intent, learn our language and be prepared to go to work to support self, family and the nation. They must be willing to get themselves re-educated on the American constitution OR leave.
They have bypassed our laws, and if they choose to come back they will have to be willing to follow our laws and be happy to live in a law abiding country. One flag, one language.
Regarding the Inner Cities where many Black Americans struggle: The black-white race conflict was actually won when the first black president of the USA was elected; could never have happened without many, many whites casting their votes for OBAMA. Sadly Obama betrayed the trust, went rogue and set out to bypass Congress. This was when the nation rejected him. Unfortunately the LEFT prodded on by race-baiter SOROS, has begun to exploit inverse racism. Inverse racism is the more you are a victim the better you are and you have rights. It is a narrative which comes straight out of Psychiatry and it is false. Man adjusts his environment to him, he doesn’t adjust to his environment. Such is the voice of socialism which was also rejected by America in 2016.
False Narrative # Six
Hillary won the Popular Vote – False.
This is propaganda.
True data: Trump won the Electoral College by a Landslide. It is questionable even that he lost the popular vote for when you take into account results from third party candidates it is clear that America was leaning right.
First because America is a constitutional Republic and not a Democracy Donald Trump is our president elect, and the popular vote is irrelevant. Where it becomes important is when half of the population don’t see this, and buy into “the injustice of it all”. This is Obama’s failure in education. The last generation were never taught our heritage. Obama was confused, he thought himself a globalist with Islamic sympathies so that is what our young people were taught.
It is even questionable if Donald Trump lost the Popular Vote. Click on the link to see the final tallies which include the results for third party candidates and you will see that in 2016 America was leaning RIGHT.
There is also much circumstantial evidence that in 2012 there was voter fraud. Judicial Watch is now doing a thorough investigation to establish the truth here. They have uncovered massive voter fraud in South Carolina and are now investigating Nevada. Judicial Truth uses Freedom of Information and legal suits to establish the truth.
Conclusion: That Hillary won the popular vote is PROPAGANDA
Let’s hope Trump is able to also manage the country as honestly, transparently and astutely as he managed his campaign. He needs both Kushner to help him handle the financial crises coming just over the hill, and Bannon to help him handle his patriotic base. He needs to police his team and bring the Deep State to heel, to keep his government honest AND TRANSPARENT – only then does he deserve and ONLY THEN will he keep the support of the nation.
