Understanding the 2017, Summer of Unrest

The more Corrupt – the more Uncomfortable Trump makes the Useful Idiots 

Have you asked yourself why Hollywood is so rabidly ANTI-TRUMP?

What you need to do is follow the money – and also examine these mind blowing facts.

Trump canceled TPA (a bad trade deal for America) and in doing so won the undying enmity of the Hollywood moguls.  In the hidden clauses of TPA was hidden “protection” to make sure the protected privilege of the big HWD bosses was caste in cement.
You see, Hollywood is threatened by the Digital Revolution:

Take Joy Villa who bucked the “big Hollywood bosses”  She has been able to take her song directly to the people. She bypassed their nasty privilege and has become a legend. On the other hand, celebrities sunk in the swamp of the system, those who slept their way to the top, or bribed their way are still content to go along to get along.
Oh how easily they are played! 

Those who have a clean conscience like Trump make the crooked and the corrupt uncomfortable. It is no surprise that Hillary and many of her Marxist followers think something weird about Trump. They should look inwards.and examine their own moral compass and understanding of the American political constitutional system that is based on balance of power.  95% of those who oppose Trump accept “Might is Right”
and favor a coercive government.  If you don’t agree with them they slap you down.

You will also find they intend to bring America down.

They are clueless about CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. They take from us without our permission.

This is America’s third crisis and you need to choose sides.  The first was when we opposed “might is right” in the old corrupt British system. We won that war of Independence.

The second crisis was when America fought and REPUBLICANS won the civil war and freed the slaves.

Then came the Digital Revolution and the International and high tech oligarchies, seeking once again to USE FORCE to destroy sovereign nations and liberty.

Make no mistake once again it is about Might is Right where the idle rich and the idle poor are stealing from the hardworking taxpayers of America. Hillary asks “what happened” – well Trump stood up to defend the forgotten men of America.

He stands for traditional values, faith, family and one nation under God. Trump enemies and the enemies of America are godless.

(2017) America is under assault from the global elites.They spread their political lies and seek a political coup, and you are being fooled if you get taken in.  It is all about elite privilege and it comes straight out of the dirty swamp.

Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make your choice

draintheswampA few of us knew that Trump was going to be the next President; and how did we know this? We read his books and studied his record and realized that when Trump decides something, that is the way it is going to be. America rejected Global, Sharia Law and American Marxism when we elected Trump. America also rejected the progressive mantra that “might is right” in favor of “rule of law” and “balance of power”. We assumed the responsibility to learn our heritage. Not all have taken the time.

The opposition is now out of the closet. Some of the ugly opposition is innocuous, uninformed with mere ideological differences. This is fine, our system allows for differences.  Unfortunately, there are still many on the LEFT like Mika and Joe Scarborough (MSM) who cannot believe that the majority in America actually want to keep our Constitution, our Civilized Culture and our Religious Liberty; sorry folks the popular vote false narrative is propaganda: doesn’t hold water when you look at the real numbers of voter fraud Judicial Watch is bringing to light.  Furthermore when you add in the numbers from third party candidates, it is abundantly clear that in November 2016, America was leaning right. Trump won the electoral college with a landslide, but most likely he also won the (legal) popular vote.

Pretending to be a Republican but working for the other side is traitor John McCain.
His wartime records are sealed but why did Nixon feel a need to pardon him – what crime is being hidden back there? Moral compass – it seems not.

Wherever McCain goes trouble ensues. He was in Ukraine before the trouble there, whenever he goes to Syria observe the conflict escalating. Now he has sunk the Repeal and Replace of ObamaCare.  And did you know that he has a foundation in full blown support of George Soros, open borders and that he fully supports other progressive agenda. McCain may be dying, but while he does he can still cause a lot of damage to the Patriot cause and America. McCain sanctimoniously is busy burying traditional Judea-Christian Western values.

Clear evidence that “the Resistance” is being orchestrated by Obama and funded by SOROS – sick. This is not just an attack on Trump but also clearly a direct attack on our American form of government, our culture and our heritage. This swamp WILL be drained.

shadow-gvt

Wanted or not by the shady & the corrupt, Donald Trump is our President and he is going to serve out eight years, as the 45th President of America.

So why all the noisy upset?

One: Swamp-dwellers
There were/are a lot of people who now stand to lose an unfair advantage and unfair privilege.

  • Sanctuary Cities
  • Federal Money given to EPA used for political advantage or protecting the silly “smelt in California” while central California tasked with feeding the nation, turns into a dust bowl. Gallons of water dumped into the sea during a drought.
  • Illegal immigrants and Refugees living off the public dole when some of our children are starving and our veterans are being neglected
  • Those gaming the legislative process
  • Teachers protected by seniority and not judged on their performance.
  • Government workers insisting on high wages and demanding high benefits, but failing the public they serve.
  • Those in high office like Clinton betraying her public trust, taking bribes (bribes laundered through the Clinton Foundation)
  • Those in high office like Clinton choosing to set up her records on a public server (SO THAT HER EMAILS COULD NEVER BE SOUGHT BY JUDICIAL WATCH ON A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST)
  • Lots of little bureaucrats raking it in on the side.
  • Main Stream Media owned by Global Interests and engaged in bias and slander, actively STIRRING THE POT.  Advertisers support MSM because they have been persuaded they control our thinking. Trump, the GOP and the The election in Georgia showed Hollywood and MSM just how irrelevant they have become.
  • There is a sick culture of moral decay and decline in Hollywood. They are also fighting the digital revolution.  We can write a song, write a book and self-publish. Hollywood relies on a rigged system government to enforce “intellectual rights”
  • Big Pharma making a killing from Government patents and regulations that protect their unfair monopoly – why can’t we buy our drugs in Canada or Mexico? Why can’t HMOs compete across state lines? Why all this government protection?
  • Farmers getting subsidies long out of date. Monsanto (GMO) permitted to hide what they are doing to poison our food.
  • Investors like George SOROS using arcane investing rules to  profit from an economic decline. (Then they use their new found wealth and power to attack our leader and our constitution)
  • People on welfare now having to learn a trade and begin to support self and family and the nation.
  • Abortion clinics relying on public funding. I am in favor of women’s choice but there is something wrong with a taxpayer being forced to fund abortions.
  • “Bad Hombres” pushing drugs into America.  The states where most drugs go are where we find the loudest protests (sad) .
    mexican-drug-infilitration
  • We begin to understand the opposition to Trump better when we realize just how much money the elites in the media and in Hollywood  stand to lose when Trump exposes their corruption, and their part in it.
  • We begin to understand the opposition to Trump much, much better when we realize just how much money is paid in bribes by corrupt corporations to corrupt politicians. These two is just the tip of the iceberg) bribery (see www.opensecrets.org)
  • And finally there are the neocons trying to stir up a war with Russia.  Clear evidence that Trump is being demonized, but we suspect so is Putin.  McCain and Lindsay Graham (both generously funded by Soros) were recently in the Ukraine and what were they doing there?
  • Then there is the United Nations. with envious third world nations with their greedy hands outstretched and we can help them, but not by giving them a hand-out. There is no reason that America is rich and Africa is poor, except for our form of government, and our creative innovation. Obama had perfected the art of using the idle poor to give to the idle rich.  Luckily Trump sees through this, and has ended this stealing from the taxpayers of America.

So many crooked, unhappy people in the world. No wonder they are terrified of Trump, Trump who is able to expose their nasty secrets with a single tweet!

Two: American Marxism
The unrest (by observation) is not spontaneous. We will never win in America if we allow other interests to subvert & divide us.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to falsify perception, or to create a false reality to justify a criminal act.

We know that this uprising is orchestrated because the demonstrators follow the same style book in every city, not just in America, proving a global strategy.

pullharderThe organized protesters shout obscenities, start fires, destroy property., these are tactics employed in times past by Stalin and Lenin.  Sadly, Marxists have been subverting our educational institutions and our youth during the terms of the last four presidents, all who favored the NWO.  It takes but a generation to steal a nation. This cries out for a full Congressional Investigation.

This Marxist influence has been blamed on Russia but that is contrary to the fact that Putin is now anti- communism and seems to genuinely believe that Communism doesn’t work. Putin/Russia has nothing to gain by subverting America. On the other hand the oligarchies of the NWO who want to rule the world, have seen an opportunity in socialism.  (Saul Allinsky)

It is an axiom of political warfare that it is not wise to assassinate popular opponents except as a last resort. Better to invalidate them in the public mind. A part of this war tactic is to pick a popular target and demonize him, blaming him for the violence.  Is this not what we are seeing with Trump? They picked the wrong man, I don’t think Trump is going to crumble.

“If you want to understand what is going on in America today, just think of the Branch Davidians. If the elites can sufficiently demonize Donald Trump and his supporters as racists or something equally repugnant, then violence against him personally or against his supporters – perhaps even violence against the system itself – will be viewed as justified.”  Need to Know News

Three: The Muslim Brotherhood
Our democratic process was designed to resolve BIG ideological differences. It has kept us away from civil war. It would have done so again were we not subverted and divided by evil within.  There is growing circumstantial evidence of infiltration of the SOROS/Obama/Hillary and the Progressive movement by the Muslim Brotherhood – an orchestrated world movement to change our culture and bring the western world to its knees, under Sharia Law.  This also cries out for Congressional investigation.

In part it is payback time for the wars in the middle East brought on by the neocons WHO ARE NOT AMERICA. We are complicit only in that we allowed it to happen.

Note: America is now at #4 on this chart while England at #7. 

Note: America is now at #4 on this chart while England is at #7.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

  • He has observed that America is in trouble, and he has decided that he is the one to make America Great Again.
  • He has the unique ability to attract honorable and able men to his side. None can challenge the production records of Pence or Ben Carson or their spiritual integrity. That they love him speaks well for Donald Trump.
  • He wants to see us safe. He wants to bring back order to America.
  • He is transparent, and tells it like it is. This is likable.
  • He understands finance; and this is something we badly need, it has become beyond vital to fix the failing economy before the next economic bubble pops (derivatives) 
  • His plan to lower taxes on the rich is coming under attack, yet what he proposes is fair and a gradient approach to handle income inequality
  • What his enemies don’t realize is that he only hits back when attacked, yet when he retaliates the counter-attack is brilliant and brutal. This president fights fire with fire.,

We all know that electing  an outsider to be President is a big step. One thing to consider though, “Constitutional  Republicanism” is so far superior to “Progressive Democracy” with its support of  “coercive government” that there is really no choice. The Left fears that Trump would be a HItler, this is the pot calling the shiny kettle black. Hitler will never come to America while we keep our constitution.

Let me clarify; In a Republic, government rules only with consent of the governed. In a global or progressive administration “Might is Right” and autocratic rule, big brother, and bullying are all fully acceptable.

This “Might is Right” is the corrupt thinking the founders left behind when America first became a nation. And that folks is what was at stake in 2016.

We were fast losing “Consent of the Governed”

We could have lost America.

Understanding Affordable Healthcare

The key to a Health Care System that lasts, is THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED

What is wrong with ObamaCare is its coercive elements, those places where it bypasses free choice.

rising-costs

There is such a wide spectrum of opinions on the subject of healthcare that I have concluded the BEST SOLUTION IS TO GIVE HEALTH CARE BACK TO THE STATES. This allows for local solutions.  One or another of the states is going to get creative and they will come up with a workable system.  Then the nation can follow.

Here are some things to look at when designing a good healthcare system:

One: The High Cost of Medical Toys (tools)  

I went for my annual eye-check today I was charged double for the ELECTRONIC MONITORING of my glaucoma. That is right; the cost for the test went up 100%.in a period of only one year.  Now this is a test that is useful to the doctor but it doesn’t actually fix anything.  I want to point out the doctor was using the same machine as last year, no new costly training needed for the doctor or tech, no new facilities were needed.  The facilities had not even been renovated.

SO WHY WERE THE DOCTORS CHARGING TWICE AS MUCH FOR AN ALMOST UNNECESSARY TEST?

Two years ago I decided I should get my heart checked – live in the mountains two hours from a hospital.  NOTE WELL: I was fine just fearful.. I went in to the heart hospital and got my EKG a quick and satisfying outcome – well no, not quite. While the EKG had reassured me my heart was fine, that was not the end of story.  They then slapped me with a Doppler electronic test, an Echo test and several other electronic tests whose names I cannot pronounce and cannot remember. I do remember the bill though, which was over $500.00 which my insurance was unwilling to pay. So much for CONSENT OF THE PATIENT!

Last week I went in for an X-ray – I had fallen on my knee. It wasn’t a bad fall but I am seventy-six years young and so it seemed like a good idea to do a quick check for broken bones.  They wanted to charge me $45.00 for the X-ray and that was just the co-pay.  I walked out without getting the X-ray.

A plummer pays for his own set of tools, so does a carpenter, so does an electrician. Why are we being charged exorbitant prices for doctor tools?

The only way such costs get paid is by passing them along via Big Government. 

I left the clinic and was going to Wal-Mart where I needed to buy a pillow.  I estimated the cost at $15.00 – It was $2.97.  As I was leaving the store I saw a little black top similar to the one I had bought a year ago for $10.00; its cost was $5.95 and I snapped it up.

After all by refusing the X-ray I had just saved myself $45.00, hadn’t I?

Point made?

 

Two: Insurance is designed so that the healthy end up paying for the sick. 

The Idle Rich (Big Pharma) are colluding with the idle poor (Welfare) to pass the cost of Health Care along to the hardworking, healthy Americans in the middle class.

Unfortunately after or during a recession, there are more sick than healthy, productive Americans. So insurance costs rise. It eventually reaches a point where the burden is just too big for the average hardworking American family. The only way Insurance and Big Pharma and Big Medicine get paid IS BY GETTING CONGRESS TO UNDERWRITE THE COSTS. Hence ObamaCare.  Judge Roberts correctly said, ObamaCare is a tax.

You add in the health care costs of twelve billion illegal immigrants not to mention refugees, an aging population, and the only way Big Pharma & Big Medicine gets paid is by government subsidy. Is this what this debate is all about?

taxes

The biggest  danger in this  situation is is that there are Socialists who favor a single payer system. That would compound the problem passing along the health burden in the form of exorbitant taxes to the already overburdened middle class.

This bypasses the CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.

 

Three: Big Pharma Profiteering
Have you ever wondered how much profit Big Pharma Makes on its Drugs?

A congressional investigation into the exorbitant costs of Healthcare is long overdue.

The swamp dwellers also have to be paid by Big Pharma and yes we the forgotten men, the hard working men of America are also picking up the tab for this.

bribery

Lest Democrats get smug finding two leading Republicans in the swamp, Big Pharma has targeted both parties. (Source: opensecrets.org)

dts-big-pharma

We the tax payers are paying for these bribes.

Now let’s look at the high cost of drugs:

Statin drugs are very expensive–a course of Statins for a year costs between $900 and $1400. They constitute the mostly widely sold pharmaceutical drug, accounting for 6.5 percent of market share and 12.5 billion dollars in revenue for the industry. Your insurance company may pay most of that cost, but consumers always ultimately pay with higher insurance premiums.

Payment for Statin drugs poses a huge burden for Medicare, and the insurance companies. Were this not the case more money could be made available for truly lifesaving medical measures. Know that there is no pain or sensation associated with high cholostrol.  It is another of these drugs Big Medicine has to first persuade seniors they are sick. They do this by monitoring the cholesterol count in the blood. Statin drugs create liver damage and a major byproduct is weak and feeble muscles. I chose not to take the Statin drugs on finding it made me weak and feeble. The one thing I do not want to be is a burden in my old age.

Pharma lowered the threshold of Statin Drugs from 240 to 200 and the number sits at 180. Yet it seems little evidence that Statin drugs benefit and much evidence that they add to the discomfort of old age. If we give Big Pharma and the doctors the benefit of the doubt we still have to hold in question WHY BIG PHARMA LOWERED THE CHOLESTEROL NUMBER from 240 to 200 to 180?

It is not only Statin drugs that cost the American taxpayers billions.  Here is a random selection of some of the more frequently prescribed drugs. (You will notice that already the consumer price of the drug is too high for the average American to pay, unless some insurance company or the Government picks up the tab.)

Prozac 20 mg
Consumer price (100 tablets): $247.47
Cost of general active ingredients: $0.11

Percent markup: 224,973%

Tenormin 50 mg
Consumer price (100 tablets): $104.47
Cost of general active ingredients: $0.13

Percent markup: 80,362%

Vasotec 10 mg
Consumer price (100 tablets): $102.37
Cost of general active ingredients: $0.20

Percent markup: 51,185%

Zoloft 50 mg
Consumer price: $206.87
Cost of general active ingredients: $1.75

Percent markup: 11,821%

And Big Pharma is laughing all the way to the bank.

The latest CASH COW  from Big Pharma is Vaccinations.

I come from a third world country and I made sure my son had all the needed inoculations to protect him and those around him. However I waited until he was seven years old so that there was no toxic overload on his developing systems.  He was seven years old and he received only seven inoculations. (1985)  I now have friends and family leaving California where coercive Vaccinations are being mandated.

So why are American children now subjected to 69 vaccinations?

Here is the typical Vaccination schedule:

AGE 12 hours:   1 vaccine
AGE 2 months:  8 more vaccines
AGE 4 months:  7 more vaccines
AGE 6 months: 8 more vaccines
AGE 12-18 months: 12 more vaccines
AGE 2-6 years: 13 more vaccines
AGE: 7-18 years: 20 more vaccines

GRAND TOTAL: 69 vaccinations

There is NO justification for mandating vaccinations. This bypasses the rights of informed parents. Mandatory vaccinations bypasses the CONSENT of THE GOVERNED

The first thing that struck me when I arrived in America was the enormous number of Advertisements for expensive drugs on the television.  I still cringe when I see them. This advertising bypasses the professional responsibility (and integrity) of our doctors. They are tasked with evaluating the advantages of a drug vs its downside- the toxic sideeffects. Yet in America they no longer have professional independence. Is it small wonder that many doctors accept kickbacks from Big PHarma as they go along to get along.

For nearly a century, doctors searched for an alternative to opioids. Then a drug company introduced a product that changed the way the pills worked. It led to a revolution that started with helping patients in chronic pain but  led to scores of doctors prescribing highly addictive drugs to patients with mere minor ailments. What may have begun at the turn of the century as doctor compassion for patients in pain,  is gradually being recognized as at best doctor ignorance and at worst willful profiteering. Today, the pain management field is still in disagreement about the safety of opioid therapy. Policymakers have only recently realized that over-prescribing of opioids is at the root of the problem.

It comes back to patient choice; THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. Has Big Pharma priced Big Medicine out of the market?


Four: Using the Force of Government to wipe out Natural Remedies

Currently we are in a war of ideas, for with the rise of Trump, the ideas of global are being challenged. What we are up against with Health Care is the insidious lure of socialized Medicine, something embraced by the global elites. .

What the Democratic and Republican Senators do not seem to understand is that we have a common enemy. Good Health Care is not a partisan matter.

When the GOP won the House, the Senate, the Governors and the White House two outstanding initiatives introduced by First Lady 44 fell into disrepute. When a new regime comes in they should inventory and KEEP what was good in the previous administration.

Firstly where before black workers were slightly bent and apologetic, they began to stand proud and tall.  Obama made some big mistakes in his eight years in office, primarily when he tried to bypass our heritage and the constitution,  but in giving black people a new pride, this was an amazing thing and Republicans should honor this. It will reflect in the health of the nation.

Despite the efforts by global to divide us that America actually reached a point where we COULD ELECT A BLACK PRESIDENT this was a big milestone. This was also good for the fashion industry as black women (in my view often more beautiful than whites) embraced color and style inspired by first lady 44, as never before.

Michelle’s influence on the nation was a good one. Her initiative to provide a healthy meal for schoolchildren was also thrown out after the GOP won the White House, the House, the Senate and the Governors. Her program was a good thing, although abused when it went coercive. (Where Obama lost his heritage was when he allowed “big brother” elements in, using the force of government to impose his view on the nation – in America you always lose when you BYPASS THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.)

Michelle’s other initiative was also inspired and should be kept and reinforced. She taught Americans to grow a natural garden and to use vegetables and herbs in their cooking. She didn’t quite get there but she started in that direction realizing that much that can be done to improve the health of America through community gardens.  We should flow power to these initiatives. A lot of good tech to improve the health of the world in movements like PermaCulture.

The First Lady Club (I can dream) 

What if our wonderful First Ladies were to get together and form a club to encourage natural solutions in America.

I mean just think of it, what if Laura Bush, Michelle and Melania were to come together to form a club to lead and inspire Americans. These ladies are untouchable.

This is how we beat Big Pharma & Big Agri profiteering.  Being a first lady is all about setting a good example. All three ladies have proven records, Laura with Education, Michelle with Healthy lifestyles and Melania is just beginning to make her mark.

The American problem with HealthCare is not a partisan matter.

We have a common enemy.

A little history.

Western medicine relies on Big Pharma’s petroleum drugs, surgery and radiation.

Recently the Big Daddy of Oil – Rockefeller died.  What many do not know is that he was also the Big Daddy of Big Pharma now gone global.

While Rockefeller may be dead, his influence is still very much alive going all the way back to the early nineteenth century, started by his daddy William Rockefeller who was a snake oil salesman, touting a fake cancer cure. 

Before Rockefeller came along there were many different kinds of natural healing, many different healers, from faith healers to chiropractic and holistic medicine. At that time THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED WAS VERY MUCH IN. Consequently with many choices there was good healing, there was competition and prices were affordable.

Rockefeller hired a man called Abraham Flexnor who persuaded Congress that natural healing was unscientific quackery. Yes that is right, it was the same Rockefeller who said “Competition is a Sin”  and natural remedies are still Big Pharma’s biggest competitor. Flexnor pushed for the standardization of medical education and Congress legislated (erroneously) that only an allopathic based AMA could control and issue medical licences. Right at this point with true competition out of the window, the cost of Health Care became un-affordable. A sad story and perhaps the biggest successful scam from the biggest swamp-dweller operating corruptly during the twentieth century.

(Don’t get me wrong I am not against orthodox medicine. Ten years ago my sister had a front-on car accident and was given a 1% chance of living.  It was orthodox medicine (surgery) pulled her through.)

Orthodox Medicine has its place but when it decides it is the only game in town, it belongs in the swamp.

One last word to the GOP lawmakers now in power. Over the last century Big Pharma has gained much power and power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. (In order to clean up the swamp, an investigation into Bribery and Blackmail of our lawmakers is indicated – only then you can craft a good HealthCare plan.)

The global socialists are completely out of touch with CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. Both Democrats and Republicans have a part to play in keeping our Constitutional Republic. Solving Health Care is vital to making America Great Again.

The best constitutional solution for Healthcare IS TO RETURN HEALTHCARE TO THE STATES.

This may also be critical to “making Planet Earth” great again.

losing-the-constitutionSo my message to lawmakers is this: Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make informed choices

Quote for the Month

That’s why I think the answer is not more of Obamacare, more government control, more of what got us in this mess. Rather, the answer is empower you. Give you choices. Lower prices. Lower premiums. Lower deductibles. Empower you and put you back in charge of your health care. – Ted Cruz

Understanding ObamaCare

The Old Boys Club, the Senate, failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare

With all that Global and Big Pharma money up for grabs, one has to ask, did Mitch McConnell ever really intend to fix ObamaCare?

Time to push TERM LIMITS in the House and the Senate. With one stroke of Trump’s pen we could get rid of McCain, Graham, McConnell, Maxine Waters, Pelosi, and Schumer, problems to freedom and America, all. Our lawmakers are becoming senile.

ObamaCare creates more jobs for the IRS than doctors. So how do more IRS agents keep you healthier than a doctor?

pullharder
The Senate should revisit the history of Obama’s deeply flawed HealthCare bill: ObamaCare is/was quite simply BAD LEGISLATION and as so, it is unsustainable.

As a law, ObamaCare was never crafted with legislative integrity. It was passed by Democrats with not a single Republican voting for it. It could not have become the law of the land had there not been legislative shenanigans used by Harry Reid to force it through.

We call ObamaCare a coercive law. There were people being forced to buy HealthCare Insurance they neither needed nor wanted.  Coercive laws and coercive (big brother) government is the biggest threat to our Republic (and to the world) at this time. 

In 2009 Harry Reid  was confident he “just” had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed; however according to congressional rules such a bill could not originate in the Senate; it was a revenue bill. So Reid went ahead and found an old (passed) Senate bill HR3590 (a military housing bill) and stripped the bill of its original language, thereby creating ObamaCare. Huh? Duh? You get it? That’s right. ObamaCare began with a confused identity.

There were other problems to making this law: Way back then the house wanted to make some changes to the bill and the house-amended version was scheduled to go back to the Senate for final approval.  Unfortunately in the interim democratic Senator Teddy Kennedy died, and was replaced by a Republican. Hello! Reid no longer had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed so once again he had to resort to underhand dealings.

This is what happened: The House would pass the Senate’s original bill (with no changes). Then they would table all the changes they wanted AND THIS THEY CALLED RECONCILIATION. Then they would pass the reconciliation bill. Hello! This was legislating? Excuse me? Of course it was all illegal but you see it was all so complicated that they got away with it.

Do you wonder ObamaCare is difficult to undo? It was a bill crafted from the FAR LEFT with no support from the RIGHT. So do you wonder the Freedom Caucus recently reacted by trying to craft a bill from the FAR RIGHT. That is how it goes: Action and Reaction. There has to be BALANCE TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE LEGISLATION. Trump understands this.

We all knew that ObamaCare was in no way created by politicians; but instead by Big Pharma for Big Pharma. Did not Big Pharma even bribe a judge when this patently illegal bill was challenged in court?  Sadly the bill included Saul Allinsky benefits and so with some (unethical Americans and illegal immigrants along for the ride) it became popular. Many eager to ride the gravy train.

The old Harry Reid/Obama WAY OF DOING BUSINESS (which is not good for America) has to change.

One bill, one subject

Enough time for legislators to read the bill

Time for we the people to study and discuss the bill.

An up & down vote (60 majority as necessary)

Could anything be more simple?

Why is this relevant?
What is essentially wrong with ObamaCare is that TWO different legislating sets have been combined into one  WELFARE  and HEALTHCARE are two different sets with different applicable rules and two vastly different IDEAL operating bases. So a good lawmaker makes different laws for each of them. With Healthcare consumer choice and free competition are the senior data, with Medicaid the senior datum is compassion. Americans are not unkind and help where they can, if they can without bankrupting the nation.

NOTE WELL: there is a long, long history of the wily Obama (with the help of Boehner) socking it to Congress. There is also a long history of the effete GOP establishment going along to get along, pocketing bribes from corporate America, especially bribes from Big Pharma. (Investigating these bribes over the last eight years would be a fruitful Gongressional Investigation)

Then we can  put that all behind us? Let’s all move forward in integritywith a new sheriff in town.

POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY

With Obama’s legacy on the line now and the House having passed the first GOP HelathCare bill,  the global forces (historically lined up with McConnell and the Republican RINO Senators) are coming into play. We are talking a lot of money here.
big-pharma-profits

Add into the mix that good conservative men, Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee want a full repeal. The Tea Party is also crying loud and clear for full repeal as promised.

Trump’s dealing skills and leadership will be put to the test as he gets good HealthCare for America passed by the Senate.

For those uncommitted to supporting Trump on Health Care,consider this: It is possible to put a man (unrestrained) in a pot with a comfortable temperature. He is sitting there comfortable so of course he doesn’t jump out. Then increase the temperature 5 degrees every half hour and, guess what? Eventually you can boil that man alive.  I don’t know how true this story is but I do know that using GRADIENTS.is a pragmatic way to go.

Trump cares about the middle man. He wants us all to have GREAT HEALTHCARE. He wants to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. But he also wants good legislation, a functioning law that will last and bring Healthcare costs down. He also wants to balance the budget and it seems HealthCare is making us insolvent. The Senate (composed mainly of men of good will)  would be wise to have Trump’s back for his are good goals, much needed by America right now.

After TrumpCare squeaked through the house, what was the worst that happened?  We had movie star Cher (worth millions) lamenting that she can no longer get free asthma medication. LOL. . The House Bill is brilliant. It is also kind and compassionate, not taking away care from those who desperately need Healthcare. Trump & Price & Pence have crafted a Healthcare bill that will dumb down the protests, yet over time still get to the the promised land. What is the promised land? Getting Healthcare out of Government. 

The new Trump HealthCare bill passed by the House rolls back ObamaCare on a gradient. That it still keeps some parts of the HealthCare organization (not the bill itself) is a plus, not a negative.  I talk here of the parts of the organization running smoothly.  Over the last eight years it is not just the the bill made changes, Medicine itself was changing, with new systems, new protocols, new HMOs and many, many new staff who have been trained.  Trump wants to keep America employed.  These are PRAGMATIC CONCERNS not to be sacrificed to ideology.  Handle the potential upsets of today, but keep the eye on the mountain and we get there tomorrow. Define “get there”: as getting Government out of Healthcare.

The main thing that has to be addressed is that the way Congress has been operating for the last eight years serving global rather than America, HAS TO CHANGE.

The very first thing to fix is weed out the old guard, (term limits) for they are going to find it the hardest to change. It is also they who are more likely to have tarnished moral compasses, and who have exploited the system. (bribes, blackmail and just plain self interest)  Each vote cast as a lawmaker should not be about stakeholders, but rather  for the greatest good.

Failing to repeal and replace ObamaCare is dangerous to to the GOP in 2018, and it is also dangerous to the FREEDOM OF AMERICA  and the FREEDOM OF THE WORLD.

Alinsky’s radical rules are a simplification of Lenin’s plan for conquest of the world. In Lenin’s writings “we the people” are called “Useful Idiots” to be scammed, manipulated and used. It is planned to use our need for healthcare to entrap us.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people

Senators should also GIVE TRUMP HIS DUE.  He is the right man for his time. He is very deserving of GOP support.

Trump is tasked to save the world from global corruption, from a global BIG BROTHER who wants to destroy America. For Trump to succeed he desperately needs the full, unqualified support of a principled GOP Senate, a principled GOP of Congressmen, excited and active Tea Party volunteers, an army of Trump Train social media supporters and WE THE PEOPLE.

He doesn’t have all that many clean hands around him to help him DRAIN THE SWAMP.

Quote for the Week

When you open your heart to Patriotism there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us” How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” Donald Trump

Seven Fake Narratives; Seven Deadly Sins

 False Narratives Trap us, it is the Truth that sets us Free. 

 inijustrice

Don’t believe blindly what you hear on TV; we are blessed with computers to help us seek out and find the truth.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo, seeking to falsify perception, or to create a false reality to justify a criminal act.

“Derogatory information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.

You can often recognize the propaganda because it is riddled with generalities. Clinton is crooked, Trump is racialist, Trump is anti-women, Ben Carson is delusional.

Truth is specific. It will supply the who, when, where, why and how.  Good leaders embrace specifics when they speak to the people.

 

False Narrative #1: America is a Democracy – False
America is a Constitutional Republic

3-branches-of-govt

At the time of its writing our constitution was muddied by corrupt slave owners, yet contrary to partisan politics we have actually cleaned house, amended the constitution to include all and everybody and moved beyond bigotry.

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.

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 (and our elected leaders) because that is who we are, American.

False Narrative # 2  Trump and his Patriots are White Supremacists – False 

pullharderThis is a narrative being spread by the far LEFT

Take Charlottesville:

  • Jason Kessler who organized the Charlottesville has past ties to Obama.
  • In February the Mayor of Charlottesville Signer, claimed the dubious honor of LEADING THE RESISTANCE
  • The presiding (Obama) judge refused a request for a better venue for the rally, a bigger place where law enforcement would have time and space to bring warring factions back under control. 
  • The police were ordered to stand down AND NOT DO THEIR JOB to bring order. It is not clear if this order came from the Governor or the Mayor.
  • ANTIFA was present at the rally BUT CONTRARY TO “WHITE IS RIGHT” ANTIFA HAD NO LAWFUL PERMISSION TO ASSEMBLE.
  • Brennan Gilmore (witness to the car crash) is a deep state, CIA operative. 
  • The car had its licence plates changed and was not being driven by its owner. 
  • Global sympathizers (McCain, Rubio, Corker, Romney) rushed to FAKE NEWS to attack Trump – are they afraid of losing their unfair privilege?
  • All have financial ties to George Soros whose open Foundations fight American Exceptionalism, America First, God, Family, and the Constitutional Republic?
  • Swamp dwellers lose $$$ under a Trump Presidency (Clue: big climate change (EPA) subsidies, Big UN subsidies, Big banking bail outs, Big Pharma & Big Agri subsidies, Money for foreign imperial wars, taxpayer funding for investigations based on phobia and fabrication( Mueller),
  • and then there are THE VERY HIGH COSTS OF unwanted refugees and illegal immigrants.
  • Kessler, Signer both spoiled Academics have not worked a day in their lives. Totally inept and totally unable to differentiate Patriots from White Supremeists 
  • There is only one person even more inept than they and that is Terry McAulliffe Corrupt Democratic Governor of Virginia who claimed the “white supremacists” had hidden several caches of weapons in Emancipation and McIntyre parks. He lied. 


All in all this was orchestrated rabble rousing, and the false narrative continues to be pushed by those in the swamp. 

 

False Narrative #3  Russia caused Hillary to lose the election – False

America chose Trump because he promised to restore our Constitutional Republic (from which Hillary & Obama had strayed)

Russophobia is largely fabrication, wishful thinking. 

I suspect the source on this is the rich, diabolical financier, SOROS
He explains his influence here in his own words.

“Our inclination is to engage in activities and with actors that will
understand and counter Russian support to movements defending
traditional values.”

Let’s rather look at this Russian narrative IN THE LIGHT OF WHAT IS GOOD FOR AMERICA AND FOR THE WORLD.

trump-russiaLow information voters NEED AN ENEMY and they and their global handlers have selected Putin to be the scapegoat.

Left leaning voters blame Putin for the Wikileaks dump that exposed the Clinton, Soros and DNC corruptions.  Wikileaks denied the data came from Russia. Putin has denied that he played any part in this data dump. Know that disinformation in the Intel community is routine; it is a confused area as it seems hackers are able to leave false footprints and so far (MSM propaganda notwithstanding) no investigation has actually elicited any hard facts. Until Assange is willing to reveal his sources the data dump that proved Hillary and the DNC crooked could have been Seth Rich (disgruntled DNC operative), SOROS (Open Society Foundations)  it could even be China or EU or any rogue Russian hacker out to make a buck. Fake Media and the LEFT accuse Putin of lying.  The truth is WE JUST DON’T KNOW.

Until we have real facts it is not a nice thing OR A WISE THING to accuse the leader of a powerful NUCLEAR nation of lying, done nothing to harm America in this century. Putin has signaled he wishes to work with Trump. Is this not a good thing?

Here are some facts we do know: We know is that Clinton and Podesta were woefully inept at protecting their computer data. Even if there were any collusion between Russia and Trump Team ( both wary of the global agenda) the IMPORTANCE HERE IN THE WIKILEAKS DUMP IS THE CORRUPTION not the leaks.  Why are the Democrats so upset? Is there something else bad we still need to find out about them?

Again. it is a far-fetched assumption that the Wikileaks dump even caused Hillary to lose. It proved her crooked, true, but that didn’t win the election. When Trump Team switched from attacking her as “crooked”  to attacking her as WEAK it was a game changer and Russia had absolutely nothing to do with that. .

America is experiencing its third crisis; the assault on God & traditional values. Trump has two crimes. One he won the election. Two he supports “America First.” and has rejected the open border, suicidal thinking of global. 

If we look at the bigger picture (and at the history) can we see that we are mad at Putin and Putin is mad at us because of Crimea and the Ukraine. If we take these Eastern European nations out of the equation could Americans perhaps accept that Putin is a benevolent dictator? Lot of evidence that he loves his people and his country and that Russia under Putin is far better for Russians than any prior Russian leader before in history.

(I personally re-evaluated Russia when I found stories on social media where Russian boots on the ground were cleaning out the mines making the space safe for children in Syria.  I also heard of Russians holding concerts in bombed out buildings, using aesthetics to lift the morale after the horrors of war.  Didn’t see Americans doing that, didn’t see Syrians doing that and definitely didn’t see anybody from Saudi Arabia trying to improve conditions on the ground. Rough, I mean rough what America, Saudi Arabia and the world has done to Syria).

Like Donald Trump, it is true that Putin is no golden boy, but we need to realize that he has seen through communism, knows it doesn’t work, likes orthodox Christianity for its morality, and supports the doctrine of sovereign nations. He doesn’t like global but then nor does Trump or his supporters. If you listen to the Putin interviews by Oliver Stone you will also hear how deeply he feels about preventing a nuclear holocaust, something that could end planet Earth.

We see that Politicians like John McCain (bought and paid by SOROS) have Putin firmly in their cross hairs.. Differentiate between the New World Order and America for they are not the same thing.

I think Putin sees this and is this why he supports Trump.

Painting Putin as enemy number one, without proof or evidence of harmful actions to Americans or America, could lead to WW3 and that is not good for any world citizen.

 

False Narrative #4 The GOP is bad, & Trump has grown horns – false
This false narrative is being used to justify violence and criminality.

demontrump

Once upon a time political discourse was about ideas. Now we have identity politics. With low information voters unable to grasp the ideas on which this country was founded, they vote for those who give the better benefits. Such are called “useful idiots” for they are used by political consultants and the international elites.

This all  began when Karl Rove encouraged by H.W Bush invented the NEGATIVE ATTACK AD. Way back in Bush-Daddy-Days (1993-1998) he invented and perfected the negative attack ad.  It is this political attack ad that has created a toxic, fearful & divisive political climate in Washington.  The idea of the negative attack is to define your opponent as bad, before he is able to get to your weaknesses. While the attack ad was evolving it was played out a lot with half-truths. Political consultants would take a small piece of truth and spin it,  the lie deriving its power from the altered truth. We see this in the Russian narrative.

The attack ad is now politics as usual.   High paid political consultants call it a science. It’s not. However they do have a bucket full of very dirty tricks. One dirty trick is to  repeat a lie often enough and they believe it then becomes true. Is this why they beat the false Russian narrative to death? Boring!!!!

Tell you something, it isn’t working and this is why: People are not all the same, they think differently so you have to talk to each one directly, the collective message is way out of touch – why rallies and social media work. Television and Main Stream Media with a collective control message, is dying and people have caught on to the Political Lies. 

Over the last eight years the idle rich have used the idle poor to steal from hardworking men in the middle. In 2016 the “Forgotten-Middle-Man” found a new champion and a movement was born.

Low information voters get their information, not through study, not through research on the web but from Main Stream Media. Main Stream Media is by nature oppositional, it is in their genes,  and so as a result almost everything the LEFT believes is also negative.

They are against global warming, against the 2nd Amendment, against the unborn, against the military, against American exceptionalism, against immigration reform and tax reform, but most of all they are against Republicans and Trump. This is a fertile climate for Marxists who specialize in demonization of their opponents. They want to destroy America.  The Islamic Caliphate also wants to destroy America.

How can Congress help? There is a simple fix and with their very lives now threatened will Congress have the courage to make the necessary changes? In Norway they limit the TV time allowed for political advertising.  Each party is given a slot to make their main points; no time allowed for knocking down political opponents. We should be doing the same thing here in America. Nobody enjoys these negative ads.  In some countries it is illegal to air Big Pharma ads. Does this not endanger our doctors?

Fix the false violent narrative embraced by the violent LEFT or we lose America.

 

False Narrative #5
American Citizens are “ENTITLED” to free healthcare, food stamps and free education – false

This socialist narrative was spread in the last election and taken to be true by some low information voters. In Socialism it is left to the State to distribute the wealth as they see fit.  They want to use high taxes to even the playing field. Entitlement requires “the force of government” to take from some and give to others.

Historically Socialism has led to anarchy which is followed by a dictator. The difference between Socialism and Marxism is that one is mild mannered and covert, while the other is overt and nasty. Antifa is a Marxist movement.

The communist Lenin created a set of rules to keep the power for the elites. His ideas were codified by Saul Allinsky, a favorite of Hillary Clinton and Obama.

Here is Alinsky’s advice to the crooked politicians who want to hold on to an elite and unfair privilege.

  1. Class Warfare:Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion:Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is awkward for the crooked elite, and dangerous to them.  Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education– take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define the future.
  4. Welfare– take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control– you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt– in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty– Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control and keep under wraps.
  8. Healthcare– Control Healthcare and you control the people

Socialism in America crept up on us before we knew it. 

It is flourishing in our universities and maybe this is why. Central to the fake narrative is a confusion regarding “rights” as defined in the American Declaration of Independence and “rights” as codified in the United Nations Bill of Rights. These “rights” mean different things.

Jefferson affirmed that in a free society government is not valid UNLESS it is derived from the CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE to so be governed. This was a new and very radical idea, timeless actually, as applicable today as it was then in the seventeen hundreds.

Jefferson talked about natural rights, rights inherent in human nature and there was a reason for this. The King’s England justified their form of government on heredity, class, race, and wealth. To give a higher validity to his revolutionary argument than “the divine right of kings” Jefferson claimed God-given rights or natural rights for America, God being higher than a mighty king.

One can spot those who wish to destroy our country by their godlessness and/or attack on the spirit or on religion.

It is important to differentiate between the American Constitutional “rights” and the “rights” as listed in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a stable datum for the European Union.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a giant leap forward for a world dominated by oppression. However, recognize that it isn’t on a par with what was given to us by the Founding Fathers. This is important, because certain international trade treaties were designed to replace the balance of power embraced in the American Constitution, elevating the ideas of the United Nations as higher than our heritage.

What they miss is that it is our constitution with its inherent balance that polices corruption. A corrupt country can never be great or prosperous.

cute-kid

The there is the consent of the governed. A coercive government taking from some and giving to others WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT cannot last. There has to be a fair distribution and agreement across teh boards.

Here sits a child at the threshold of life, having great potential in America, even although female she has all opportunity. She would also ahve it if she were black.

However  she is going to have to work for it, going to have to learn, to get herself well-educated.

If she depends on the government for a hand-out or a hand-me-up she will fail.

 

False Narrative # 6 Hillary won the Popular Vote – False.
That Hillary won the popular vote is more PROPAGANDA than it is truth.

QUEEN hILLARYQueen Hillary was crowned by Wall Street. America did not want her.

Trump won the Electoral College by a Landslide. It was stated Hillary won the popular vote but this is questionable when you take into account results from third party candidates and voter fraud.  In 2016 America was clearly leaning right even in the popular vote.

Relevant to the popular vote narrative is also evidence of voter fraud where illegals were voting for Hillary. Judicial Watch has uncovered massive voter fraud in South Carolina. Judicial Watch uses Freedom of Information and legal suits to get at the truth.

 

False Narrative # 7
Trump and the GOP are Racists – False 

“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make our world safe for diversity.”  – John F. Kennedy

Let us examine the facts here: Trump has employed persons of every race, pays women much or more than men,  As an employer his company history shows him in no way a bigot.

He stands for law and order and our constitutional republic.

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 under the law.

We have serious situation with immigration and refugees 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 have eleven million plus immigrants living illegally in America and although this number has dropped under Trump, until the wall is built we have no control over criminal elements entering our country.

More than half of illegal immigrants came here to escape poverty or crime in Mexico (and more recently they are coming from other Latin American countries) What is bad is we have political players like SOROS funding this influx of low, uninformed, uneducated immigrants into America, useful idiots that Soros believes will vote democrat.  The Left accuses the GOP and Trump of meddling in the elections but this is classic gerrymandering.  There is a political agenda.

Mexico, beautiful country, same continent ask yourself why Mexico is poor and America rich? Reason: they don’t have and honor our constitution or have our language rooted in rule of law.

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.

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 actually doing his job but sadly he is obstructed on every side.

Proving again that Trump is in no way racist and a strong supporter of Diversity is the choice of school for his son Barron. Not following in the tradition of past presidents, the Trumps looked afield for a stimulating environment but also one rich in diversity

Eight years ago before the rise of inverse racism there was a strong push within corporate America to foster diversity.  One of the most successful programs was the art-centered diversity event. The best of all cultures is found in the art and music, and this raises morale and shows us we are all the same, although delightfully different.

Man is not the color of his skin, the size of his nose or even his genetic heritage.

We are spiritual beings, and first and foremost, we are Americans, one nation under God.

Conclusion

To put it all in perspective, watch this video: mind blowing facts.

The income inequality is something America has to address but not by embracing socialism but rather by policing corruption.

The biggest criminalsdanger to the current administration is interference from swamp dwellers who have enjoyed an unfair advantage. They have gamed the system and want to keep on doing it.

It is Trump who now stands in their way and oh so badly they want to nail both he and Putin and get back to corrupt business as usual.

We now have the Mueller investigation: Will it be honest?

I call on all men of good will to stand up for good government.

The world is on the tipping point and we do not want another world war.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo, seeking to falsify perception, or to create a false reality to justify a criminal act. Watch for this.

You can also recognize it because it is filled with name-calling – Putin is a thug, Trump a Russian agent. No specifics are supplied to  back up the accusation. The intent here is to demonize, an immoral political play. There is always a hidden agenda in demonization and in this day and age, sadly, the agenda seems to be to have America fail.  

You will find that those who profit from propaganda lack a moral compass and are inevitably found to be dwelling in the swamp.

Don’t believe blindly what you hear on TV; we are blessed with computers to help us find the truth . . .

Be sure you come down on the side of good. With the world on the tipping point it is not the time to do nothing. Stand up and be counted.

Understanding Demonization

How do you take down a country without firing a single shot?

You use demonization as a political tool; straight out of the playbook of the Marxist Lenin.

I opened my tablet and found a new icon – I clicked to see what was there. It was an ad sent to me by Washington Post, not anything I had requested.
“THE LEAST POPULAR PRESIDENT IN MODERN TIMES”  Yes, right?

crowds-at-trump-ralliesIt is an axiom of political warfare that it is not wise to assassinate popular opponents except as a last resort. Instead, it is better to demonize them in the public mind so that, when violence finally is used, the public will think it was justified.

I opened up my Twitter account today to find an ex CIA Director calling for a coup against Trump. Hello! This is our President. We elected him.

It is the hysteria of this Russian collusion narrative, being used to demonize Trump.
It seems the intelligence community, the LEFT, the global elites and FAKE News are freaking, unable to make the DEMONIZATION OF TRUMP stick.

It has its roots in the Deep State.

How clean was the Obama Intelligence community? What is the motivation?

  • Revealed by Snowden a supranational intelligence group exists called “Five Eyes”  USA, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. This intelligence collaboration operates ABOVE THE LAW OF ANY SOVEREIGN NATION. It is inevitable that the un-accountability of this non-sovereign group will have to come to an end under a Trump “America First” administration.
  • What the LEFT think cost them the election was the Wiki-leaks dump. Yet it has now been proven that the volume of emails in the Wiki-leaks dump was too many to have come over the Internet; a physical IMPOSSIBILITY. This accusation is pure demonization.
  • Even although the FBI must know this dump was an inside job, the intelligence community claim it had the footprints of a Russian hack. It has now been admitted they are able to create a false foreign footprint to hide their own meddling in the affairs of other sovereign nations. (Constitutional crimes)
  • If we say this dump caused the DNC & Clinton to lose the election, this is itself an assumption. This dump was embarrassing to the DNC BECAUSE IT SHOWED THEIR CORRUPTION. Making the assumption that it caused Clinton to lose an election IS DEMONIZATION; not in any way a given.
  • Originally the blaming of Russia came from GCHQ and MI6 (British intelligence in collusion with Obama) with no real evidence. They were illegally unmasking Trump team IN THE MIDDLE OF AN ELECTION.
  •  The Obama intelligence community had one foot in the swamp and so all this is being covered up by dirty cops, Brennan, Clapper, and Comey.  They have a problem: how to undo Trump and get back their corrupt power?
  • The agreed upon story concocted is THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION now being investigated by dirty cop Mueller. These are SOME the outpoints in this now oh so super silly, false RUSSIAN narrative. 
    • Wikileaks denied Russian collusion.
    • Obama’s FBI failed to prosecute Clinton even when she destroyed evidence withholding her server from the FBI (obstruction of justice)
    • Comey/Lynch protected Clinton (an illegal, colluding secret tarmac meeting where it seems there was bribery)  Did Clinton promise to keep Lynch as AG?)
    • After the election enter Britain and MI6 (imperialism) again: Christopher Steele an ex MI6 operative was paid by a Clinton donor to fabricate a false, slanderous and vulgar dossier implicating Trump, suggesting that Russia had “the goods on” Trump This data was never verified. Is it not the hat of the FBI to investigate and throw out phobia and fabrication, slander & demonization?
    • Comey paid Steele (Fusion GPS) for this patently false information. Trump should sue.
    • It gets worse: Comey’s FBI failed to secure and investigate the Clinton server, just as they also failed to go to the scene of the Weapons of Mass destruction in Syria – Assad and Russia claim they were in no way guilty for the Sarin attack that justified the taking out of Syrian airplanes. There is a lot of evidence that this was faked. Were the Syrians guilty we do not know? What we do know is that there was no responsible or COMPLETE investigation; THERE WAS NO INSPECTION OF THE SCENE ON THE GROUND; not at the scene of the crime or at the airfield. Was this evidence photshopped? Was this also demonization?
    • Big question for you: Could there also be demonization of PUTIN? If so why?

In the words of George SOROS:

“Our inclination is to engage in activities and with actors that will
understand and counter Russian support to movements defending
traditional values.”

Sadly this proves we are fighting an effort to destroy America. It is also a fight of good vs evil.

soros-influence

Far LEFT (fascist) George Soros has embraced some very strange global ideas. He thinks his global movement is here to save he world, yet it has embraced Socialism.  He thinks the Constitution is an obstacle to a just world order – we thought we won this cold war, no- it just went underground. Here we are fighting it all over again. The truth is that Soros and his international cronies are fighting to keep an unjust privilege.

Examine these mind blowing facts.and then reach your own conclusions

Recognize that to demonize is the first step, the international oligarchies that rule the world want a world  where they are not constrained by Rule of Law or the Constitution.

This is their game plan:

The Obama and SOROS ‘s play book is Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” the codification of Lenin’s guide for one-world domination.

Here are the Alllinsky rules.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people

Does any of this sound familiar? Do you want it?

Notice the assault on Christian values, and also an assault on religious liberty.

The Clintons have been playing this evil demonization game for a long time.  This is what went down under Bill Clinton’s with Hillary being complicit.

From Ed Griffin (Need to Know News)

“There is no better example than what happened to the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas, in 1993. Because the leader of this religious group was known to have weapons that were not registered, the federal government and National Guard laid siege to their compound and killed its leader, David Koresh, along with 82 of his congregation, including women and children.

The public was not outraged by this, because the media had published an endless barrage of ‘reports’ of sexual abuse of children in the compound – reports that, in later months were shown to be without foundation. But the public didn’t know that at the time, and most people thought it was a shame about those children being killed in the attack, but it was merely collateral damage from a justified law-enforcement operation against very evil people.

If you want to Understand what is going on from the left in America today, just think of the Branch Dravidians. If the elites can sufficiently demonize Donald Trump and his supporters as racists or something equally repugnant, then violence against him personally or against his supporters – perhaps even violence against the system itself – will be viewed as justified. “

Get the word out so that America can see political demonization for the ugly PR crime it is

Politics used to be fun, but it become no longer a game at the instant they tried to assassinate Steve Scalise. This may be a pernicious scare tactic to warn Congress to vote for a Trump impeachment.  This is not about democracy.  This is Treason.

The only way to prevent that tactic from succeeding is to make the public aware of the tactic itself.

I love America. I want America to stay a Constitutional Republic for another century. I know that it is the Constitution that polices corruption

How False Narratives Lead to Violence

It is the truth that sets us free.  False narratives take us down a wicked road  to hell.

Have we reached a point where some Americans are now using violence to enforce their point of view? Where did this idea come from that it is OK  to kill off duly elected leaders?. Blink three times; are we living in some kind of Banana Republic; have we gone so far down the wicked road to hell back to where “might is right”; as in the times of the kings of old? We fought and won that battle in 1775-1783 but it seems we are back to fighting it again.

Of some grave concern is the response from Main Stream Media and the LEFT to this normalization of violence?

A question we have to ask , are we following some Lenin playbook given to us by unpatiriotic global forces, and global elites that do not love America?

No Lefties, Donald Trump and the GOP is not your enemy.
Look a little deeper for the enemy has never changed.
If you are patriotic we are on the same page.

We love America and we put our country first.

False Narrative #One: America is a Democracy – False
America is a Constitutional Republic

election-2016

 

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 cleaned house, amended the constitution to include everybody and moved beyond bigotry.. 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.

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 (and our elected leaders) because that is who we are, American.

 

False Narrative #Two
The GOP is bad, Trump is a monster and this justifies violence – False

trumphornssepia

Once upon a time political discourse was about ideas. Now we have identity politics. With low information voters unable to grasp the ideas on which this country was founded, they vote for those who give the better benefits.

Then, too, behind the scenes political consultants are trying to game the outcome.

This began when Karl Rove encouraged by H.W Bush invented the NEGATIVE ATTACK AD. Way back in Bush-Daddy-Days (1993-1998) Karl Rove invented and perfected the negative attack ad.  It is this political attack ad that has created a toxic, fearful & divisive political climate in Washington.  The idea of the negative attack is to define your opponent as bad, before he is able to get to your weaknesses. While the attack ad was evolving it was played out a lot with half-truths. Political consultants would take a small piece of truth and spin it,  the lie deriving its power from the altered truth. We see this in the Russian narrative. The attack ad is now politics as usual.   High paid political consultants call it a science. It’s not. However they do have a bucket full of very dirty tricks. One dirty trick is to  repeat a lie often enough and they believe it then becomes true. Is this why they beat the false Russian narrative to death? Boring!!!!

Tell you something, it isn’t working and this is why:

Useful Idiot
People are not all the same, they think differently so you have to talk to each one directly, the collective message is way out of touch – why rallies and social media works. Television and Main Stream Media is dying.


2016 the “Forgotten Middle Man” found a new leader and a Movement was Born

Over the last eight years the idle rich have used the idle poor to steal from the hardworking man in the middle.

Low information voters get their information, not through study, not through research on the web but from Main Stream Media. Main Stream Media is oppositional, it is in their genes,  and so as a result almost everything the LEFT believes is oppositional. They are against global warming, against the 2nd Amendment, against the unborn, against the military, against American exceptionalism, against immigration reform and tax reform, but most of all they are against Republicans and Trump. This is a fertile climate for Marxists who specialize in demonization of thier opponents.

This violent attack on a lawmaker (Scalise) was going too far, yet it is applauded by MSM and the LEFT.

To change this we will have to get more Americans up to where they can have an individual solution rather than a collective handout.

How can Congress help? There is a simple fix and with their very lives now threatened will Congress have tthe courage to make the necessary changes? In Norway they limit the TV time allowed for political advertising.  Each party is given a slot to make their main points; no time allowed for knocking down political opponents. We should be doing the same thing here in America. Nobody enjoys these negative ads.

Fix the false narrative embraced by the violent LEFT or we lose America.

 

False Narrative # Three
Trump’s Travel Ban is Unconstitutional – False 

inijustrice2

This is the CLASSIC LIE.   You take a datum true within a certain set of circumstances and you transplant it into a totally different set of circumstances and you get the classic lie. 

(Nineth Circuit Court needs to go back to school and restudy Mathematical set theory and how it applies to judicial logic.)

It is true that it is unconstitutional to discriminate on the basis of race or religion WHEN DEALING WITH THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA.  Your set here is the nation. We have evolved to a good point where our laws are now blind to race or religion or gender and this is protected at the highest level in the set that is America by the USA Constitution.

However, know that this is a set that includes ONLY American Citizens.

So what these courts have done is transplant one set of values and rules, and transplanted these into a different set of circumstances. When we are dealing with immigrants and refugees we have a different group, a different set with different rules. The Constitutional protections only apply to  American citizens

In examining who we should let into our country we should always put the safety and the law and order of America first.  Does the immigrant applying for the privilege of joining our citizenry, pose a threat to the American social contract? It is a very good question and it is a question our President has rightly asked.

The Trump travel bans control entry of immigrants from chaotic foreign countries who don’t have a documented history. We have to be able to spot a pattern of prior criminal intent. If there is no documented record we are unable to do this and the immigrant is disqualified not on race, but on his inability to present proper documentation and historical record. Becoming an American is a privilege, not a right and the onus is on the immigrant to provide proper documentation. The immigration authorities are also tasked with askin, is this new potential American able to support self, family and the nation? Americans want partners not parasites.

We are dealing with yet another different set when we look at Refugees. If there is ANY DANGER the refugee will have to go on welfare and become a burden to a state already overburdened with debt, that refugee must be sent home. If there is any danger the refugee will not be able to learn our language and progress at a viable rate in our schools, he must be disqualified. Sorry. The onus on coming up to standard is on the refugee. We do not owe the rest of the world anything.

That this has anything to do with race is a false narrative.

A refugee who does not speak our language will have a hard time in our schools. A refugee who doesn’t understand and respect our culture will turn our everyday life into a powder keg.

Trumps’ Travel Bans are fully Constitutional.

 

False Narrative # Four
Hillary won the Popular Vote – False.

QUEEN hILLARY

Queen Hillary was crowned by Wall Street. America did not want her.

Trump won the Electoral College by a Landslide. It was stated Hillary won the popular vote but this is questionable when you take into account results from third party candidates and voter fraud.  In 2016 America was clearly leaning right even in the popular vote.

Relevant to the popular vote narrative is also evidence of voter fraud where illegals were voting for Hillary. Judicial Watch has uncovered massive voter fraud in South Carolina. Judicial Watch uses Freedom of Information and legal suits to get at the truth.

Conclusion: That Hillary won the popular vote is more PROPAGANDA than it is truth.

 

False Narrative # Six
Trump and the GOP are Racists – False 

businessdiversity

“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make our world safe for diversity.”  – John F. Kennedy

During the Primary Election of 2016 and the fight for power between Trump & Hillary there was intense slander.  America would do well to reform its libel laws.  Things said by candidates are frequently twisted.

Trump is opposed to illegal immigration and unvetted refugees and travel from unsettled countries  This has been twisted to LABEL him a racist. Certainly MSM has called him a racist. The Black Caucus has called him a racist. Hillary called him a racist.   Obama-appointed judges have called him racist.  Why do they always attack others for thier own sins?

Let us examine the facts here:

Trump has employed persons of every race, pays women much or more than men,  As an employer his company history shows him 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 with immigration and refugees 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 have eleven million plus immigrants living illegally in America and although this number has dropped under Trump, until the wall is built we have no control over criminal elements entering our country.

More than half of illegal immigrants came here to escape poverty or crime in Mexico (and more recently they 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? Reason: they don’t have and honor our constitution or have our language rooted in rule of law.

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.

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 actually doing his job but sadly he is obstructed on every side.

Proving again that Trump is in no way racist and a strong supporter of Diversity is the choice of school for his son Barron. Not following in the tradition of past presidents, the Trumps looked afield for a stimulating environment but also one rich in diversity

happy-children

Eight years ago before the rise of inverse racism there was a strong push within corporate America to foster diversity.  One of the most successful programs was the art-centered diversity event. The best of all cultures is found in the art and music, and this raises morale and shows us we are all the same, although delightfully different.

Man is not the color of his skin, the size of his nose or even his genetic heritage.

We are spiritual beings, and first and foremost, we are Americans, one nation under God.

Understanding Comey

Is Comey the good guy?  

If you have heart and are informed, you should be in no doubt, reader,
that the world is now on the tipping point.

Restore a healthy Balance of Power

Here is proof that he was part of the Deep State and it seems what the Deep State is wanting is war with Russia and China.  This was revealed by Brennan in Australia this last week and relayed to me by Larouche PAC. Perhaps Brennan and the Deep State thought we were not listening.

Sign the petition to Congress to stop this UNPRODUCTIVE WITCH-HUNT 

America doesn’t want another world war, this IS not why we elected Donald Trump.

What America wants is for us to MAGA, to rebuild and there are some exciting things happening in the world, where China is engieering an economic recovery through an exciting infrastructure initiative that they have invited us to be a part of.   When  swamp dwellers engage in obstruction to protect an unfair power and privilege, we have to stop them. Not only in the USA but also in the world, the financial elites are losing their power. It may seem that we are going backwards but actually we are making quite good progress. Before the Trump era, corruption was buried deep underground, but now as the swamp bubbles up, we are able to see the bad more clearly. Finally we are able to see the good and the bad and the ugly.

Comey’s testimony, rather than setting up Trump for an obstruction of justice charge, instead proved conclusively that Comey was a primary leaker and that in fact he has always been part of the Deep State. Schumer told Trump, don’t mess with the Deep State, they can get you from every which way, but Trump ignored him and pressed on. Comey tried to blackmail Trump, but Trump pressed on. We have a good leader.

There is also evidence now surfacing that Comey has a history of protecting Hillary in her long string of criminal endeavors and being paid off as a result.

The big assumption underlying the Comey situation is that Russia is bad. Take three steps back and really look at this and get rid of fixed ideas. Then go honestly research this. I, personally have found no evidence that Russia has done anything bad to America in this new century. I will turn on Russia ONLY WHEN CONGRESS INVESTIGATES RUSSIA and issues a war or enemy declaration based not on “think” but on bad actions tabulated in writing.  So far in this Russian collusion situation I have failed to see anything other than phobia and fabrication.

A person is not bad because “they” say he is bad, this is politics by fabrication and phobia. In America with our Constitution and Rule of Law we should be able to rise above cabal & rumor. Could the Russia nothing-burger be just another false narrative to lead us into an ugly war?

(From Larouche Pac)

June 9, 2017 – Lyndon LaRouche called upon the American people to shut down the coup underway against President Trump which was fed Thursday by the lying testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. LaRouche said that the coup is an FBI-type operation attempting to destroy the United States, and if it is not stopped, the world will face general warfare.

On June 7, former Director of National Intelligence Clapper revealed the actual motivation for the coup against Trump in remarks in Australia. He said that Trump’s openness to peace with Russia—the platform upon which Trump was elected by the American people—was itself wholly against U.S. national security interests, in effect, equivalent to treason. It was already known in official Washington well before the election, that President Obama, in collusion with the British, candidate Clinton, DNI head Clapper, CIA head Brennan, and FBI head Comey, had steered the U.S. on a war course with Russia and China, which was meant to be fully activated with Clinton’s election.

Trump was elected instead, triggering the coup which has followed. President Trump has kept his promise and established better relations with both Russia and China, who are seeking cooperation with the United States in developing the world based on great infrastructure projects. That is the only issue here.

Comey backed that up Thursday in a long rant against Russia as a mortal enemy, in response to a question from Senator Joe Manchin.

Here’s how the actual conspiracy worked in general outline. According to Comey’s own words and their actual implication, on January 6th, FBI Director Comey is selected by Obama’s intelligence chiefs to do a “J. Edgar Hoover” on Trump, briefing him on salacious blackmail material fabricated by British intelligence and Clinton campaign operative Christopher Steele. It is a pure Hoover blackmail operation. Comey signals to Trump, “give up your fantasy about cooperation with Russia and we won’t release this.” Trump doesn’t budge. The very next day the whole Steele dossier is leaked all over the international news media, accusing the President-elect of perverse sexual acts with Russian hookers. Comey admitted as much in his testimony Thursday, saying he was aware that this briefing could be construed as a “J. Edgar Hoover moment,” in response to a question from Senator Susan Collins of Maine. During this meeting, Comey assured Trump that the President wasn’t under FBI investigation. Comey goes out and writes a classified memo about the briefing and the President’s responses. Was this memo shared with the British? Who else was it shared with?

Comey claims that he wrote this up because he thought the President would lie. This is hogwash. Comey had already been targeted to bring down the President, to entrap him, if Trump did not back down on seeking better relations with Russia and China. That James Comey set out to entrap the President, is the only logical conclusion which can be drawn from Comey’s testimony in response to questions by various Republican Senators.

First, Senator James Risch: I remember, you talked with us shortly after February 14th, when the New York Times wrote an article that suggested that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians… that report by the New York Times was not true. Is that a fair statement?

Comey: In the main it was not true.

With respect to the alleged Michael Flynn conversation:

Risch: You quoted exactly what the President said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”… He didn’t direct you to let it go?

Comey: Not in his words, no.

Risch: He didn’t order you to let it go?

Comey: Again, those words are not an order.

Risch: You don’t know of anyone being charged for hoping something?

Comey: I don’t as I sit here.

In any truthful scenario that should have ended the matter there.

Various Republican Senators asked Comey repeatedly, why, if the President had asked for his loyalty, had told him to drop the Flynn investigation (which was a false statements investigation that the President in all probability did not even know about), why did he not report it to the Attorney General?

Alternatively, why did he not threaten to resign, as he had done previously in a confrontation with President George W. Bush? Why keep meeting with the President, telling the President he was not under investigation, while refusing to tell the public the same thing, and returning to strategize with FBI agents about what was said and the next steps. Comey admitted during his testimony that he did not do logical things, including telling the President to stop any improper conduct, because the FBI had decided that these conversations were of “investigative interest,” i.e, Comey, acting as an undercover informant, had not yet succeeded in completely setting up President Trump.

Comey includes Assistant FBI Director McCabe in the circle of people he was briefing on all of his interchanges with the President. Unfortunately for Comey and this entire “obstruction of justice” scenario, McCabe testified under oath to Congress following all of these events, that there had been no effort by Trump or anyone else to interfere with or obstruct the FBI investigation. In fact, Comey himself testified to the Senate Thursday that prior to his firing, there was no investigation of President Trump for either obstruction of justice or collusion with the Russians.

In a statement following Comey’s staged performance, President Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz denied that the President ever asked Comey to let the Michael Flynn matter go, ever pressured Comey, or ever asked for Comey’s “loyalty.” Kasowitz appropriately emphasized these parts of Comey’s testimony:

  • The alleged Russian hacking did not change any votes.
  • The President told Comey that if any of his satellite associates did something wrong it would be good to find that out.
  • James Comey admitted that he leaked all of his memos about his conversations with President Trump to the New York Times, in order to provoke the appointment of a Special Prosecutor. At least one of these memos was classified.

Whether this continues or not is a question for the American people and their representatives.

As LaRouche said, it is time for the people to speak and end this disruptive and highly dangerous attempted coup. It’s also time for the coup plotters to be investigated, including the treasonous news media.

Comment from Grandma Thunder

  1. We have to hold Comey accountable for both Obama and Hillary’s Crimes which he failed to investigate and handle.  These went down on his watch.
  2. We have a chance now, with AG Sessions, DAG Rosenstein and the new FBI director – all good men.  Minimally what these good men need to do is put a head on a pike.  A Comey head and a Hillary head would do wonders for the trust in justice that America has sadly lost.  There has to be a prosecution; there has to be action. If they fail to act they will take on the condition of the prior administration.
  3. It is a very sad day for America when we see that our justice has been dominated by phobia, fabrication, and blackmail.  True justice is a beautiful thing. It is what sets America apart from the world.
  4. It will still be awhile before the swamp stops bubbling. Now still a lot of hot air coming off, especially from Main Stream Media who are colluding with the Deep State to create trumped up charges against Trump.
  5. If all men of good will fail to stand up and demand good justice, we will lose America

NOW WE ALSO KNOW THAT COMEY AND HIS OTHER DEEP STATE OPERATIVES, HAVE NO MORAL COMPASS.

Understanding Entitlements

losing-the-constitution

Power lasts only within a framework of balance. It was the American Constitution that gave our country its chance to be great and prosperous and to become a Super Power This is because there was a natural balance between the Executive, Judiciary and the Legislature. The anchor of the system is free and fair elections, making sure that government occurs ONLY with the consent of the people. It was the Constitution that gave America a chance to vote out crime and corruption. It was the American Constitution that gave our nation the time to get its act together and make things work in America.

So what went wrong? Sadly, over time the gap between the rich and the poor grew wider. There has developed a break in reality between the Elites and the people.  The elites are now out of touch. This is what set the stage for the upset election of 2016.

There are those who look at this income inequality and envy & resent the wealth of others.  Their solution is for government to take from the rich and give to them (socialism) but it is not quite that simple.  For the last eight years we have had a government leaning LEFT, pushing a semi- socialist agenda and this did nothing to address the income inequality, in fact the gap between rich and poor widened with the banks growing even bigger. They were taking from he man in the middle, the hardworking forgotten man, and giving to the “useful idiots” the idle poor. Unemployment soared.

The way socialism survives is with a central bank printing all the money. Without this “manna from heaven” the system falls apart.  Do you now see why socialism has become so popular with the global banking elite who run the world of finance? Central banks have their own scam  a different scam, messing with the production cycle in order to create a false demand. Then they pass the costs along to the people in the form of creeping inflation. The people buy this, but only as long as it is done on gentle gradient. Runaway inflation is always accompanied by riots.

Socialism needs this unlimited supply of money to pay for their unlimited entitlements.

Congress has also entitled banks, giving them unfair usury rules. e.g. The whole student loan crisis falls apart if we abolish compound interest. There is actually no good reason for banks to charge compound interest on student loans or mortgages.

There is a lot that has been corrupt in government but can you isolate just one attribute that makes government bad; bad government is coercive. Bad leaders use the force and power of government to take from some to give to others.  Bad leaders seek to force their values on all the people and this without the consent of the governed. Bad leaders bypass “the power of choice” in their people; this power of choice is the essential attribute that fuels innovation.  Socialism is a scam & thrives on creating benefit for the “idle” rich while giving to the “idle” poor. Finally as Margaret Thatcher so aptly observed, you run out of other people’s money, and the system collapses in upon itself. We have many examples in history of a socialistic country falling into crisis and decline.

Without a government of force Socialism doesn’t work. And so we have:

  1. Controlled voting (voter fraud) The election is decided by elites before the voting.
  2. Fake News (Media conglomerates with a single message) If they all spout the same narrative we spot that they are fake. True reality is multi-faceted. Honest reporting will have many different messages.
  3. Freedom of speech squashed; the force of justice is misused to suppress free thought and free speech and bulldoze opposition.
  4. Force & violence are used on any & all who disagree.
  5. In a socialist-leaning regime you are likely to find a nasty trail of murders
  6. Then here are the ALINSKY Rules designed to keep the horrible, deplorable people subservient, while all the time bribing them with free services.

The communist Lenin created a set of rules to help keep the power for the elites. His ideas were codified by Saul Alinsky, a favorite of Hillary and Obama. Here is Alinsky’s advice to the crooked politicians who want to hold onto an elite and unfair privilege.

  1. Class Warfare:Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is awkward for the crooked elite, and puts them in danger. Elites MUST take out God. People have to worship the State.
  3. Education– take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define the future.
  4. Welfare– take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control– you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt– in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty– Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control and keep under wraps. They will be too tired to rise up and turn against you.
  8. Healthcare– Control Healthcare and you control all the people

America rejected Hillary & Obama’s Saul Allinsky ideas, leaving us with a fight on our hands to restore the American Constitution & reaffirm American exceptionalism.  This is a gigantic war of ideas playing out in the American Republic. Socialism invaded our colleges, where snowflakes, overburdened by student debt, are ripe recruits for socialism. There is a better way

Central to the problem is a confusion regarding “rights” as defined in the American Declaration of Independence and “rights” as codified in the United Nations Bill of Rights. These “rights” mean different things.  

Jefferson affirmed that in a free society government is not valid UNLESS it is derived from the CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE to so be governed. This was a new and very radical idea, timeless actually, as applicable today as it was then in the seventeen hundreds.

Jefferson talked about natural rights, rights inherent in human nature and there was a reason for this. The King’s England justified their form of government on heredity, class, race, and wealth. To give a higher validity to his revolutionary argument than “the divine right of kings” Jefferson claimed God-given rights or natural rights for America, God being higher than a mighty king. It is this idea (often repudiated by the left leaning Academia) that has caught on in the world, with America shining the light of liberty, as a beacon and an anchor.

It is important to differentiate between the American Constitutional “rights” and the “rights” as listed in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a stable datum in the European Union. Could it be that this good document is actually flawed and wants correction; is this why the British decided to leave the EU and set a new direction for mankind? Is this why America rose up to reject global and embrace “America First” to reaffirm our commitment to Liberty?

Entitlements
The writers of the Universal Declaration of Rights saw that all men have equal rights that should be protected under law, but this declaration must have been written by envious men. These men tried to level the playing field by using the power of government to take from some and give to others (without the consent of the governed).

cute-kid

Here is a child as she stands on the threshold of life, filled with wonder:

  1. Is she in any way concerned with Social Security?
  2. Is she concerned with education? Maybe so, but should such Education be of a Federal or Global nature or should it be local? e.g. She does not need to learn the same survival skills as a tribal child in Afghanistan, or how to milk a cow in Africa. And who should pay for this free-propaganda education?
  3.  Is it important to her to be able to have asylum from persecution, to transplant into other countries? And who will pay for this relocation?
  4. Should she have the right to free healthcare? Who is to pay for it?
  5. Are her gender rights a matter for global or Federal coercion?
  6. Does she have the universal right to rest and adequate leisure, and holidays with pay?
  7. Ought the government give her food stamps, free lodging, and as they now want to do in EU, a Cost of Living Allowance?

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a great effort but in it we find what is going wrong in the EU, and why there was a BREXIT. As the EU global and socialistic ideas penetrate America, we are left with a fight on our hands. In fact history shows us that Socialists will go on fighting us until we tame them. It is a PR war and they have lots of money, and they ahve had more than half a century to perfect their diabolic PR propaganda techniques. Did you know that Public Relations was actually created by Rockefeller? So why do they need to scam us and fight us? This is because they derive their energy from the efforts of others and so must steal.  It is a sad truth that such envious people cannot innovate, cannot build, cannot create their own wealth. They have to take from others by mis-using the force of government.

In 2016 America chose to go back to being a constitutional Republic and rejected the global views of the LEFT and socialistic views of the United Nations. America decided they wanted to function under the Constitution and the American Founding Principles where government is based on the consent of the governed and a constitution that polices corruption.

The declaration of American Independence affirms a spiritual component that is very beautiful:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

Thomas Jefferson

Why we need to Re-organize the Federal Government like a Business

The fundamental principles of this Organizing Board come from my experience in the corporate world, my longer experience as a small business owner, from books and I have even drawn from the wisdom of the ages. I have sought the basic organizing principles that are timeless. This is because I know old solutions are not going to cut it. Our challenge is uniquely different and it exists with us in the here and now.

The essential difference between the Federal Government and a successful business lies in the intent behind the organizing pattern.

Over the last century the Federal Government has morphed into a Juggernaut, forcing us to question the intent.  Our founders supported limited government and liberty and so we examine the intent behind a BIG Federal Government. Most bureaucrats in the Federal government are not elected by the people. The organizing goals are different.

In 2016 we chose a successful entrepreneur and tasked him with making the executive run better.  With this re-organization our new President is delivering on a campaign promise.

In order to survive a business has to balance the books and if successful it amasses a surplus.  Government is often measured by entitlements and there we find the difference between the two. This organizing board does not knock out entitlements but rather corrects them, recognizing that to a degree they bring order, an essential part of organizing in government. This aside most things are the same. Be it a business or a nation, financial viability is essential; America is a long way from financial viability with its debt that is unsustainable. There are other signs of danger present in the anarchy that is all around us. In 2016 voters rose to the challenge, deciding something had to be done.  So we elected Donald Trump.

Reorganizing is appropriate in a condition of danger. If we do not change our ways, we create a situation where our enemies can get at us.  Safeguards are indicated. So we get together, and we organize together to make America stronger and safer, and to give our grand children a better life.

bw-organizing

There are over a million people working in the Executive Branch and it seems they all report directly to the president. If nothing else if you implement these suggested changes, the President is going to experience MUCH RELIEF. Bill Clinton said, “Being president is like running a cemetery: you’ve got a lot of people under you and nobody’s listening.”

 

Basic Principles: 

This is a 3/7 organizing board.  It has three major divisions.

Each Division has up to, but no more than seven departments

Three is an echo of the three branches of government but has a deeper significance.  Create a two division organizing board and you create a seesaw government, an out of kilter monster.  Create a pattern with three legs, providing each leg is roughly equal in influence to the other two, you will have created a pattern that can last for centuries.

We still always need to watch the numbers and the numbers under Obama were not impressive. GDP has been weak. So suspect that the Organizing Board you have inherited is also weak. We all know the WHY of this; we all know the primary problem is that the Federal Government is TOO BIG.  The challenge is how to fix it.

While the three is important it is about structure and balance. The seven is equally important but it has a practical concern. It has been found that no man (even one as capable as Donald Trump) can manage (in the routine) more than seven juniors. This is a stable datum in organizing.

So we put Homeland Security on the Right, the Vice President on the Left, and add the President in the middle, and there you have your basic three. Having an independent division floating free of the primary administration, is a plus. Standing three feet behind the Organization it can observe it and correct government when necessary. Lifting it up into the first circle gives Homeland Security clout.

This division, being independent, can inspect, investigate, identify departures from the Constitution AND DEPARTURES FROM THE PRESIDENT’S AGENDA. It works to make America safe but also to bring the Executive into alignment. In this age of terrorism it is vital to detect and handle; vital to have this fail-safe.

So we have Homeland Security floating to the side and reporting directly to the President. One more thing that is unique about Homeland Security is that in this Org Board it is the only Division collecting electronic records on Americans.  This collection of data prevents terrorism but in the wrong hands used with the wrong intent, this electronic spying can be abused as we are seeing with ObamaGate.

How does Homeland Security or the President or Cabinet correct the machine?  One needs a strong grid that one can put over the functions as they exist in all their chaos.  Give this grid a sound pattern. and put a good person in charge of each division and/or department. Bingo, you have your stability and this makes correction of the machine possible.

The Primary purpose of Homeland Security is to Keep America safe. It has a secondary purpose when things are calm, and that is to correct government. Even when not calm it helps the President put out fires. 

Also reporting directly to the President is his personal assistant , a security adviser, his chief global strategist, a domestic strategist and someone in charge of special projects.

i.e. Homeland Security & Expansion (Foreign Affairs)

The Importance of Alignment 

Functions not listed on this Organizing Board are sent back to the States where they align better.  I think specifically of medicaid, agriculture and public education, none of these has anything to do with the President’s primary purpose to enforce laws enacted by Congress. Alignment is important and state functions operating locally where they belong, builds community.

Yes alignment is vital: an observed big problem with the Federal Government is that the intentions of those who work there go in every which way creating much confusion. Sadly the Trump administration is coping with an Obama hangover and Obama intentions are diametrically opposed to “America First.” In the last eight years there have been efforts to destroy America replacing American truths with a Global or Muslim mindset. “Might is right” replaces “Government of the people with the consent of the governed” . It is the job of Homeland Security to identify and get rid of staff with counter or evil intentions:

Note: The challenge of the Trump administration at this time is to get over the Obama hangover. How does Homeland Security identify these problem people? Suggest all Federal workers are asked to write an essay that covers:

  • Goals & purposes
  • To define “Republican” and explain how this differs from a Democrat.
  • List & explain three things that make our constitution unique and special. (They should say “Consent of the Governed” “Balance of Power” and “Bill of Rights”)

Obama thinking is very different from an American viewpoint a little crazy. This is how Tucker so easily makes fun of them.  The irrational thinking should jump off the essay page.  Homeland Security looks over these essays and it should be easy to pick out the bad eggs.

With a good organizing board, despite specialization of function, the team should be on the same page, working towards common goals.

A word of advice, (only because of the toxic environment on the LEFT) don’t have one person doing all the pruning. It is hard on people to lose a job. So while it will be vital that a lot of Federal workers are let go, give this authority to Homeland Security (leakers), the Chief Organizing Officer (duplicate functions) and the Chief of Staff (choking regulators). You will notice these functions have been split. They work better that way.

Holding the pattern and form of the Org is important. It lets people have predictability and this gives them comfort and raises the whole tone of the Administration.  Then it becomes much easier to go where you are going.

The Power of Splitting Key Functions

 In doing so the organizer invariably strengthens both functions.

An example of this is the anti-trust laws which have not been enforced by the last five presidents.  If you have the courage to accept this Organizing Board you will need a very strong & principled person to hold this department.  (Dave Brat comes to mind)  The anti-trust division in under Holder was flimsy at best and under Lynch non-existent. Anti-trust got eclipsed by Immigration, Justice, Crime and Civil Rights

The anti-trust effort was never consistent. Witness the breakup of AT&T into the baby bells. It was a glorious time, I was doing business with Pacific Bell.  Fabulous company. They were fair, paid well and treated staff like family.  Then came the AT&T octopus to gobble up all the baby bells. Staff are now stressed and unhappy whereas they used to love the company. I mean most were there for the duration like 31 years. Now they can’t wait to leave.  I know I visit there regularly. That AT&T was able to reaffirm its monopoly is mind boggling.

Go figure.   AT&T has become one of the bigger corporate donors if not the biggest. Now they hedge their bets, contributing to both parties. Pure and simple this is political bribe money. Anti-Trust failed to do their job.

The anti-trust laws are the solution for our times. When banks and corporations get too big they become dangerous to the nation. Jimmy Carter said we are ruled by international oligarchies and there is truth in this.  Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

You don’t want to break up corporations just for the sake of breaking them up, we are already beyond that point.  Putin has the right idea.  He lets his oil barons operate freely BUT ONLY UNTIL THEY BECOME A POLITICAL PROBLEM.  Always nice to have the laws as and when you need them. Don’t always have to apply them.

Here are some troublesome oligarchies/monopolies.

  • Main Stream Media is a conglomerate. We may think of them as separate but they operate with one voice creating a corrupt narrative. They may as well be a monopoly. They are guilty of phobia and fabrication. They operate on the stable datum that if they say a lie over and over it will become true. It seems their narrative is set by global oligarchs.  We do need to fix the libel laws; most of what is coming down from MSM is political assault. America deserves better than what they are getting from Main Stream Media.
  • Amazon: Bezos has taken on the color of an enemy.   He should never have been allowed to expand into the News business. Apple has just introduced Apple News which should also not be permitted.
  • Google & Facebook are skating on the edge but could still pull themselves right if we have a head on a pike and they see which way the wind is blowing.

Then there are the corrupt Big Banks like Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of England. Luckily these are easy to fix by just re-introducing Glass Steagall which breaks them up automatically.  There is going to be a lot of resistance.  (As it stands now the economy is heading straight for another breaking bubble (derivatives) and if these bankers are not handled delicately & firmly they are sure to have their hands out for another corrupt bailout. This time it will destroy America and maybe even throw the world into a new dark age.

Enforce “America First” and foster small local banks and you fix the Deep State.

There will be a lot of opposition to breaking up the oligarchies.  It can be done if taken slowly. The universe is conquered by taking one small bite at a time. It must be done if we are serious about Making America Great Again.

Anti-trust is what Homeland Security will use to handle any & all global or big bank, big corp. threats.

Office of the Vice President

Purpose: Removing obstacles and making the President’s life easier.

  •  Counsel to the President
  • MAGA division
  • Organizing division
  • Liaison to the House & the Senate
  • Church outreach, fostering Church Based Charities (with Ben Carson)
  • Recruitment of Judges & Executive Personnel
  • Education (except public education which is sent back to states)
    Federal Education would include Civic & Diversity Reach-out Adult-Education Programs, Charter schools,Church Schools & Special Schools. It should become an honor for a student to be promoted from a public school to a Federal School, something students should strive for.  This should not be a rarity, but happen fairly often.

Note: Mike Pence is a principled believer. His faith is his greatest asset. He should maintain contact with Church-based movements like Ben Carson’s MYFAITHVOTES and while DJT reaches out to America directly, in a more quiet way, VP Pence should reach out to and consolidate the support of evangelical Christians  He should plan to speak at, at least two Christian forums each month, with one of them being with black pastors.

I would love to see Ben Carson with a performing Candy, create Diversity rallies.

 

Homeland Security 

Homeland Security Secretary (reports directly to the President)
Purpose: to keep America safe.

  1. Detecting potential threats & policing Terrorism
  2. Digital Intelligence & Internet oversight
  3. Policing and controlling Illegal Immigration
  4. Anti-Trust Department
  5. Banking Oversight & Reform
  6. Finding and Freezing $$$ from, for & to terrorists.
  7. FEMA & Emergency Preparedness

Note:   Electronic spying on American citizens Is ONLY PERMITTED in Homeland Security. Other Intel agencies must submit a request for any shared data or unmasking.

Purpose – To help the President keep America safe. Secondary purpose to correct the administration. 

 

Division of the Chief Organizing Officer 

Reports to the Vice President
Purpose: To help the President & VP keep Good Order

  1. Justice (holds those who break the law accountable)
  2. FBI (domestic intel)
  3. Manages Legal Immigration
  4. OMB, Treasury & the IRS (taxes)
  5. Internal WH Communications & information flow, including managing the Whitehouse & Press Briefings
  6. Legal
  7. WORKFARE
    • HUD
    • Social Security
    • Child Services (Welfare)
    • Health Care
    • Food Stamps

Note: We call it Workfare to remind citizens they have obligation to contribute to the social contract and have no right to become a state burden. You have the perfect person to head WORKFARE( a controversial department – Ben Carson.  Let him win at HUD and then promote himself.  His healthcare experience will be invaluable as he assumes the reigns of Workfare.

You will note that OMB has been elevated above Treasury & the IRS in the same department. A major danger to the nation is financial and when we are ready for banking reform you want to be able to corral the Wall Street people

The purpose of the Chief Organizing Officer is to help the President bring order.

 

 MAGA  Division (Office of the Chief of Staff) 

The MAGA Secretary (Chief of Staff) reports directly to the VP
The Purpose of this division is to enforce American laws & to rebuild America

  1. Defense (Pentagon)
  2. Federal Contracts (Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop etc)
  3. Transport
  4. Energy
  5. Infrastructure
  6. Interior (EPA)
  7. Veterans Affairs

Note: There is good reason to put infrastructure into the same division as war.  There is a natural tension between war that destroys and infrastructure that builds.  Rex Tillerson is an outstanding State and if our diplomacy remains good (as with the Saudis) we can let the Arabs fight each other for dominance without having to put American boots on the ground. Arabs will  eventually sort out the Middle East. The threats domestically and around the world will become less as the Trump administration advances into its second term.

What then, do you do with the army? You put them to work on the roads, dams, bridges and the Southern wall.

The purpose of the MAGA division is to defend the motherland and to rebuild America.

 

Expansion

Expansion Secretary reports directly to the President
Purpose – To expand America’s good influence abroad,
& increase the President’s popularity at home
.

(i.e. Good works well disseminated)

  1. State (Foreign Affairs)
  2. CIA
  3. Trade
  4. Social Media (FB, Reddit, Twitter, Instagram & BLOGS)
  5. Events & Rallies
  6. Electioneering, Polling, & Strategy
  7. Fundraising for Congressmen and for the 2020 election.

Note: Three functions are provided on this Org Board to getting ready for the next election.  It is vital for America that Donald Trump is a two term president. To save America we need to outlast and to out create the resistance.

Until able to break up Main Stream Media, it is vital to hold regular rallies to bypass the phobias and fabrications of the corrupt Press.  Suggest recruiting and training at least a dozen speakers that can still go out alone or in twos or threes, when the President is occupied on other presidential matters. There are good people:

Sean Hannity (if he leaves Fox, he could run the Department)
Cory Lewandski (remains loyal even after being fired)
KellyAnne Conway speaks well.
Newt Gingrich (currently underutilized)
Ann Coulter
Laura Ingraham
Judge Nap
O Reilly
Judge Jeanine

Vital to keep up the outreach with at least two rallies a month.

To win in 2020 you will need to expand your social media department with EXPERT LOYALISTS. Make sure Twitter doesn not collapse due to bankruptcy.

In the final analysis you need to work towards having your own social media platform, and your own Trump broadcasting station. We want to keep the Trump Train movement going.

Know that many of us see THE ENORMOUS CHALLENGE YOU ALL HAVE TAKEN ON clearly. Sir, Mr President, I hear you when you say this challenge is more difficult than you anticipated.  We are grateful.

In the final analysis it is a challenge we cannot lose.  We have to help you tame the Resistance for the future of America depends on it. Thank you for leading us. Sad but true, to win big, you are going to have to conquer the vulgar opposition from the LEFT and also tame the Press.  We have to be willing to be in this for the duration, do whatever it takes.

About SOROS: We must bring SOROS to justice and freeze his assets.

Then go one step further, & reform the investment banking rules abolishing futures. Look at all the money this evil man has accumulated and how he has used it to destroy nations & civilizations  Doubt that he ever built anything in his life?. Congress is complicit and we are complicit because we failed to demand better investment laws of our representatives. It should not be possible for an investor to bet on a decline and then go out and create that very decline. That is evil.

Congress should also legislate to exclude all global monies coming into American politics.  Even if the investor is American but trades in foreign countries his fortune should be classified as global. He has to make a choice. He cannot fundraise or donate to American politicians unless he in unequivocally “America First”

It is Congress’s job to make better investment rules, aligned to growing our country and rebuilding America

The Deep State

Spying & Wiretapping on American Citizens is handled by making electronic surveillance (which is necessary to catch terrorists before they harm Americans) becomes the sole purview of Homeland Security.

Reducing the Clout of the Deep State is handled by splitting the Intelligence Communities , Homeland Security reports to the President; FBI is located with Justice and reports to the Chief Organizing Officer. The CIA reports to the Expansion Secretary.  It exists in the Expansion Division to enhance the function of Foreign Affairs. With this split pattern there is less collusion and Deep State damage will be much easier to control.

    • Wiretapping (electronic surveillance) is restricted to Homeland Security.
    • The FBI collects only domestic intelligence
    • The CIA collects only foreign intelligence
    • Law enforcement is a City and State Function
      Such handles overlapping functions. (The protocols of how they relate one to the other should be clearly defined to prevent confusion in times of Emergency.) We  are a team.

The Russian Narrative

There is no need to be on the defensive. Legally Congress has not declared war on Russia. So all Americans have the legal right to communicate, and I do not see that there is any crime. All that remains is phobia and justice should never be driven by fabrication or phobia. Those conducting justice actions and/or investigations need to the follow rule of law.  UNLESS THEY CAN PRODUCE LEGAL EVIDENCE THAT PUTIN HAS HARMED AMERICA IN THIS NEW CENTURY and/or a disconnect order has been issued to all Americans and has been ignored, they have no case.

Don’t ever let them call the narrative. Turning Justice into a witch hunt, by letting it be driven by phobia and fabrication is a degradation of one of our finest institutions.

Your guilt is based on a false assumption that Russia is bad.  This has not been proven to the best of my knowledge.

Not for one moment, defend yourself, make them apologize, and don’t let them ever make you all guilty.  No crime here. The onus is on them to PROVE LEGAL WRONG DOING.

Until then, you can all STAND PROUD & TALL.

All on the Trump Train should stand proud and tall.  After all we are doing something unique and new and we are saving America and maybe the world.

seuss

 

In conclusion:

Reagan called it the iron triangle, saying it was the one thing he was unable to crack.  Most presidents who buck the Deep State end up dead. Donald Trump, Sir, know that you have one unique advantage over prior presidents. Your leadership and The Trump Train players have created a deeply spiritual component to the game.  In all the noise I surf the net to get a feel for where the opposition is each day. Invariably I will find three to five comments, that say “God has this in hand.” If I am arguing with a Democrat (and know you cannot argue with a democrat because they cannot reason)  I say ” God has this in hand” End of argument.

Collective prayer is a powerful force.

Understanding Healthcare

Why do we still have ObamaCare? 

obamacare

There are now Americans hurting, unable to get affordable healthcare.

Obama, I think you may have been well meaning in the beginning, but what you created was not affordable, it was not even efficient.

Is ObamaCare a bail out for Big Pharma and Big Medicine?

There needs to be a congressional investigation into the use of Medical Toys

I went for my annual eye-check today  I was charged double for the ELECTRONIC MONITORING of my glaucoma. That is right, the cost for the simple test went up by 100%. Now this is a test that is useful to the doctor but it doesn’t really fix anything.  I want to point out it was the same machine as last year, no new costly training for the doctor or tech, no new facilities needed. In all other industries with these factors in place, costs are going down.

BECAUSE OF GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY DOCTORS ARE CHARGING TWICE AS MUCH FOR AN ALMOST UNNECESSARY TEST –  Is this all part of the “Art of the Deal”  They deliberately create chaos and escalate prices in order to force Congress to legislate in their favor.

Two years ago I decided I should get my heart checked – live in the mountains two hours from a hospital.  NOTE WELL: I was fine. I went in to the heart hospital and got my EKG a quick and satisfying outcome – well no, not quite. Then they slapped me with a doppler electronic test, an echo test and several other electronic tests I cannot pronounce and names I cannot remember. I do remember the bill which was over $500.00 which my insurance was unwilling to pay. So much for CONSENT OF THE PATIENT!

Last week I went in for an Xray – I had fallen on my knee. It wasn’t a bad fall but I am seventy-six years young so it seemed like a good idea to do a quick check for broken bones.  They wanted to charge me $45.00 and that was just the co-pay.  I declined.

I want to point out again since my last Xray no need to train a tech, no new equipment and the building which is charming, has been there over ten years. So why the cost escalation?

The only way these costs get paid is by passing them along to Big Government. With all their electronic medical toys, Medicine and Big Pharma have priced themselves out of the market.

I left the clinic and was going to Walmart where I needed to buy a pillow that from past experience I estimated the cost at $15.00 – It was $2.97.  As I was leaving the store I saw a little black top similar to the one I had bought a year ago for $10.00  Its cost was $5.95 and I snapped it up. After all by refusing the Xray I had just saved myself $45.00, hadn’t I?

Point made?

SOLUTION: CALL FOR A Special Investigation INTO MEDICINE’S USE OF ELECTRONICS – Have the panel issue guidelines on what Big Medicine can and cannot charge for these doctor toys.  have teh panel decide when and  when not these electronic tools (which when used at the right time and in the right conditions) saves lives, should be used in the routine.

Two: Is ObamaCare a Bail-Out for the Insurance Companies?

Insurance is designed so that the healthy end up paying for the sick.  This is the nature of the beast – it lacks an intrinsic integrity. Unfortunately during a recession, with the stresses hitting primarily low-income voters, there are more sick than healthy productive Americans and the burden grew just too big for the average hardworking American family to shoulder. In a climate of twelve billion illegal immigrants and the demand from the world to take in refugees and an aging population, the working insurance equation has been broken right down the middle.

The big danger is that there are Socialists who favor a single payer system. That would not fix things, it would compound the problem by passing along the health burden in the form of exorbitant taxes.A single payer system presents an even bigger danger; we heard much about Allinsky in the last election.

The Obama and SOROS ‘s play book is Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” the codification of Lenin’s guide for one-world domination.

Here are the Alllinsky rules.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the peopleLooking back on the last eight years is any of this agenda apparent in where America has been going?

Why do insurance companies keep putting up the prices? Are they trying to use the threat of rising prices or pulling out of the exchanges, to coerce government?  All Senators should read “the Art of the Deal”

With ObamaCare (and universal healthcare) productive,  healthy Americans are not only being asked to pay for the sick and the old, but also being asked to pay for non-citizens, for those not working, for those eating badly and sorry to have to say this, but with Planned Parenthood, for promiscuity.  It bypasses the CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. The insruance companies know that we would not pay for these costs if given a free choice, so they are doing all they can to get government foot the bill and pass it to us indirectly. The truth is the industry has priced itself OUT OF THE FREE MARKET.

Insurance companies only continue to the degree we are kind enough to bail them out.  They know this, but does Congress?  They know this but do the people?

I have a rule when going to a doctor. If my body is hurting I force myself to wait two weeks and see if I can handle my problem with self discipline, good eating and exercise – do you know what?  I rarely need doctors  How many more Americans would treat their own minor conditions and not run to the Emergency Room if there were no insurance?

You handle insurance health care differently from welfare healthcare. They are two different animals and there should be two different bills. You will get confusion if you put them together. Different sets, different rules.

CONCLUSION 
The senate will find it far easier to pass healthcare legislation if it recognizes that they are dealing with TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT pieces of legislation. 
THEY SHOULD PASS A HEALTHCARE BILL and then sit down and pass a separate bill for Medicaid. 

So where do we go from here?

A Little HIstory:

When we talk of making a law, this is the ideal: One transparent source, one subject, one bill, enough time for politicians to read the bill, enough time for the electorate to weigh in on the bill, a simple up/down vote ON THAT ONE SUBJECT and a two thirds majority where applicable. Could it be simpler? Simple is good.

Sadly this is not how it works in Washington.

LOL. Not so long ago the Senate voted in favor of a continuing resolution, a funding bill that funded the government through the end of 2016. The only problem is that there was NO BILL. They were voting on a nothing.  Of course they approved it. Go figure?

Legislators need to get integrity in on how they vote.

It begins by making sure they write the bills themselves. It is a betrayal of the sacred trust of the people who elected you to turn over this hat to vested interests. Do your job.

ObamaCare was crafted by Big Pharma and Big Medicine and it was designed to obfuscate. It was so long that no lawmaker had time to study its consequences. Is it not true that Nancy Pelosi is still trying to read the bill (after ten years)

One of the reasons the healthcare bill is not passing the Senate is that Mitch McConnell is trying business as usual and it is not working. He also carries a lot of RINO debris. When the Republican Establishment put heart and soul behind backing moderate republicans they read the wind wrong. Sorry Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy but America is moving RIGHT. Legislation by bribery, blackmail and pork is going to become a thing of the past.

ObamaCare was quite simply BAD LEGISLATION and as such, it was unsustainable. This time round the GOP does not want to make the sames mistakes all over again.

As a law, ObamaCare was never crafted with legislative integrity. It was passed by Democrats with not a single Republican voting for it. It could not have become the law of the land had there not been many legislative shenanigans used by Harry Reid to force it through.

We call ObamaCare a coercive law. There were people being forced to buy HealthCare Insurance they neither needed nor wanted.  Coercive laws and coercive (big brother) government is the biggest threat to our Republic (and to the world) at this time. 

In 2009 Harry Reid  was confident he “just” had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed; however according to congressional rules such a bill could not originate in the Senate; it was a revenue bill. So Reid went ahead and found an old (passed) Senate bill HR3590 (a military housing bill) and stripped the bill of its original language, thereby creating ObamaCare. Huh? Duh? You get it? That’s right. ObamaCare began with a confused identity.

There were other problems to making this law: Way back then the house wanted to make some changes to the bill and the house-amended version was scheduled to go back to the Senate for final approval.  Unfortunately in the interim democratic Senator Teddy Kennedy died, and was replaced by a Republican. Hello! Reid no longer had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed so once again he had to resort to underhand dealings.

This is what happened: The House would pass the Senate’s original bill (with no changes). Then they would table all the changes they wanted AND THIS THEY CALLED RECONCILIATION. Then they would pass the reconciliation bill. Hello! This was legislating? Excuse me? Of course it was all illegal but you see it was all so complicated that they got away with it.

Fast forward to 2017 and McConnell was trying the same old tricks again. It was a good thing some lawmakers took a stand and said let’s start all over and DO IT RIGHT THIS TIME.

Do you wonder ObamaCare is difficult to undo? It was a bill crafted from the FAR LEFT with no support from the RIGHT. So do you wonder the Freedom Caucus recently reacted by trying to craft a bill from the FAR RIGHT. That is how it goes: Action and Reaction. There has to be BALANCE TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE LEGISLATION. Trump understands this.

We all knew that ObamaCare was in no way created by politicians; but instead by Big Pharma for Big Pharma. Did not Big Pharma even bribe a judge when this patently illegal bill was challenged in court?  Sadly the bill included Saul Allinsky benefits and so with some (unethical Americans) it became popular. Always some eager to ride the gravy train.

The old Harry Reid/Obama WAY OF DOING BUSINESS (which is not good for America) has got to change.

One bill, one subject

Enough time for legislators to read the bill

Time for we the people to study and discuss the bill.

An up & down vote (60 majority as necessary)

Could anything be more simple?

It gets a lot easier when you realize you should be passing two separate bills : a Healthcare bill and a Medicaid bill. Two different animals with two different sets of rules.

A FEW PRACTICAL CONCERNS

With Obama’s legacy on the line with the House having passed TrumpCare, the global forces arraigned against McConnell and the Republican Senators are escalating.  Add into the mix that good conservative men, Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee want a full repeal and Trump’s debating & dealing skills will be put to the test as he gets TrumpCare through the Senate.

For those uncommitted to supporting Trump on HealthCare, consider this: It is possible to put a man (unrestrained) in a pot with a comfortable temperature. Then they increase the temperature 5 degrees every half hour and, guess what? Eventually they are able to boil that man alive.  I don’t know how true this story is but I do know by observation that this universe works in GRADIENTS.

The only way you are going to pull this off without letting America descend into civil war is to work with GRADIENTS.  You go from where you are now to where you want to be which is a place where Government is out of Healthcare.

To do this you have to separate out Welfare from Healthcare and craft a fair Medicaid bill that is compassionate but does not in any way reward the deadbeats.  In order to get benefits the American taxpayer should demand some form of exchange.even if part-time community service.  This is true for free housing, food stamps and even disability. Think of it as WORKFARE rather than welfare and think gradients.

I know a good productive man had a bad car accident now on disability but used to have an import art business. He is still quite able to work on the computer two to four afternoons a week. He still has important business assets, lines to artists all over the world.  He is now on full disability. This man should be helped to keep his business and his pride. Even in his reduced capacity he is able to contribute to the social contract.  He is very deserving of help.

I know a woman on disability (citing mental health) She assists her boyfriend (when she is not stealing) to do a very physical job of re-glazing bathtubs.  There is no reason whatsoever why she should be getting taxpayer support. She also draws full disability. When you separate Healthcare from Welfare, and address Medicaid as welfare, not Healthcare, the door is opened for policing Welfare fraud.

The Senate (composed mainly of men of good will)  would be wise to have Trump’s back for he is much loved and much needed by America right now. Trump is struggling to bring back order to America in the face of insurrection and insurgency from the SOROS/OBAMA camp as assisted by useful idiots from the Left.

The new Trump HealthCare bill passed by the House rolls back ObamaCare on a gradient. That it still keeps some parts of the HealthCare organization (not the bill itself) is a plus, not a negative.  I talk here of the parts still running smoothly, I travel for work and have seen the new buildings. Over the last eight years money was poured into Healthcare with new systems, new protocols, new HMOs and many, many new staff getting  trained;  we want to keep America employed. These are concrete things not to be sacrificed to an ideology. You go from where you are to where you want to be and where is that ? It is a place where we get Government out of Healthcare for therein lies our Liberty.  

pullharderMany Americans have become dependent on getting healthcare benefits for which they are not deserving, but on which they have come to depend. If you give a child a toy you can expect  a tantrum if you then take it away without replacing it. The Senate has to REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE

Recognize that we have a president who is a pragmatist. This is a BIG plus.

Senators should also GIVE TRUMP HIS DUE.  He is the right man for his time. He fully understands his first job is to keep America safe. He also knows he has to bring back ORDER. He is very deserving of GOP support. Trump is tasked to save the world from global corruption, from a global BIG BROTHER who wants to destroy America to turn the world socialist controlled by global (big brother) oligarchies.

The GOP Senate who all agree on one thing, freedom for America, needs to learn to pull harder.

For Trump to succeed he desperately needs the support of a principled GOP Senate, GOP Congressmen, Tea Party volunteers, Trump Train social media supporters and “We the People”

He doesn’t have all that many clean hands around him to help him DRAIN THE SWAMP.

Understanding the “Rights” of Man

Socialism, Useful Idiots, and Saul Allinsky

Power lasts only within a framework of balance. It was the American Constitution that gave our country a chance to be great and prosperous. This is because there was a natural balance between the Executive, Judiciary and a Legislature AND free and fair elections. It was the Constitution that gave America a chance to vote out crime and corruption. It was the Constitution that gave our nation the time to get our act together and make things work in America.

There are those who look at the income inequality and say, what happened was that greedy rich men got more powerful. If we want to make America Great we have to spread the wealth more fairly, take from the rich and give to the poor. We are making strides when we advance towards socialism.

Not quite that simple.

For the last eight years or longer Federal Education has pushed a socialist agenda. What has been omitted in the curriculum has been education about the Constitution.

losing-the-constitution

Is there one attribute that you could say makes government bad?  The answer is that Bad Government is Coercive. Bad government roughs up its people and bad government uses its force and power to take from some to give to others. While Socialism is sold as a system of sharing the wealth that rarely occurs. The State uses its might to benefit the few while pretending to serve the many. Socialism thrives on creating benefit for the “idle” rich while giving to the “idle” poor. The enemy of Socialism is the man in the middle; or as Trump calls them, the forgotten man.

In Socialism it is left to the State to distribute the wealth as they see fit. Historically Socialism has led to anarchy which is followed by a dictator. The difference between Socialism and Marxism is that one is mild mannered and covert, while the other is overt and nasty. They share the same goals.  In the both we see a loss of liberty. In order to keep the scam going, Socialism permits voting but this is controlled. The outcome is determined before the voting starts. It requires “the force of government” to take from some and give to others. Socialism is very attractive to the global oligarchies who think they rule the world.

The communist Lenin created a set of rules to keep the power for the elites. His ideas were codified by Saul Allinsky, a favorite of Hillary Clinton and Obama.

Here is Alinsky’s advice to the crooked politicians who want to hold on to an elite and unfair privilege.

  1. Class Warfare:Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion:Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is awkward for the crooked elite, and dangerous to them.  Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education– take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define the future.
  4. Welfare– take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control– you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt– in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty– Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control and keep under wraps.
  8. Healthcare– Control Healthcare and you control the people

Socialism in America crept up on us before we knew.

Central to the problem is a confusion regarding “rights” as defined in the American Declaration of Independence and “rights” as codified in the United Nations Bill of Rights. These “rights” mean different things.  See the diagram above as this underlies the partisan schism that exists in America today.

Jefferson affirmed that in a free society government is not valid UNLESS it is derived from the CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE to so be governed. This was a new and very radical idea, timeless actually, as applicable today as it was then in the seventeen hundreds.

Jefferson talked about natural rights, rights inherent in human nature and there was a reason for this. The King’s England justified their form of government on heredity, class, race, and wealth. To give a higher validity to his revolutionary argument than “the divine right of kings” Jefferson claimed God-given rights or natural rights for America, God being higher than a mighty king. It is this idea (often repudiated by the left leaning Academia) that has caught on in the world, with America shining the light of liberty, as a beacon and an anchor.

It is important to differentiate between the American Constitutional “rights” and the “rights” as listed in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a stable datum in the European Union. Could it be that this good document is actually flawed and wants correction; is this why the British decided to leave the EU and set a new direction for mankind? Is this why America rose up to reject global and embrace “America First” and reaffirms our commitment to the American Constitution?

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a giant leap forward for a world dominated by oppression. However, recognize that it isn’t on a par with what was given to us by the Founding Fathers. This is important, because certain international trade treaties were designed to replace the balance of power embraced in the American Constitution, elevating the ideas of the United Nations as higher than our heritage.

The writers of the Universal Declaration of Rights saw that all men have equal rights that should be protected under law, but they tried to  level the playing field by using the power of government to take from some to give to others (without the consent of the governed). The UN Bill of Rights is a form of Socialism.

cute-kidHere is a child as she stands on the threshold of life, filled with wonder:

  • Is she in any way concerned with Social Security?
  • Is she concerned with education? Maybe so, but should such Education be of a Federal or Global Agenda? She does not need to learn the same survival skills as a tribal child in Afghanistan, or how to milk a cow in Africa.
  • Is it important to her to be able to have asylum from persecution, to transplant into other countries? And who will pay for this?
  • Should she have the right to free healthcare? Who is to pay for it?
  • Are her gender rights a matter for global or Federal coercion?
  • Does she have the universal right to rest and adequate leisure, and holidays with pay?

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a great effort but in it we find what went wrong in the EU, and why there was a BREXIT.  As its ideas penetrate America they make us fight one with another.

We have to decide once and for all (one and all) if we want to be governed by a remote New World Order, or by the Constitution and the American Founding Principles where government is based on the consent of the governed, a constitution which thanks to a balance of power polices corruption.

The declaration of American Independence affirms a spiritual component that is very beautiful:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

Understanding too Big to Fail; Glass Steagall & the Volcker Rule

Always, it is the forgotten man who suffers when Big Banks are Dishonest 

To Regulate or not to Regulate; that is the question . . .

robtheworld

Small Business (organized right)  employs more than all the high tech companies, more than Walmart, Ali Baba, and Amazon added up together. Wipe out the small businesses, each with two or three or twenty employees with BAD LEGISLATION and (like Obama) you destroy the smaller jobs that keep the economy afloat.

So how do we rate the new Trump, Treasury Secretary?

The only thing on which he is firm is that there will be no bank bailouts. Well good.

The Vocker rule? he kind of likes it. Does he favor Glass Steagall; maybe and maybe not?  Is he in bed with the big bankers? Looks like that but not necessarily so. This dissembling may not be a bad thing at all, at all.  We should give the man a chance. Now is not the time to rock the financial boat.

NOTE: GLASS STEAGALL WAS A CAMPAIGN PROMISE.  It was even written into the GOP platform.

To clarify, the Volcker rule puts limits on the ability of banks to bet with money entrusted to them by depositors.

Glass Steagall on the other hand. cleans up the confused identity in banking. It forces banks to be either an Investment Bank or a Commercial Bank.

An Investment Bank buys and sells bonds, stocks and other investments. They assist new companies to go public with their initial offering. (IPOs) When we think of Investment Banks we also think of market or economic liquidity. Investment Banks fulfill their purpose (contribution to the social contract) better with fewer regulations. They need  governed by common sense rules that are simple and clearly defined. Now after fifly years of confused identity, it is a hornet’s nest. For example, the rules governing derivatives badly need clarified, and overhauled. Derivatives have formed a banking bubble and we now have more “too big to fail banks” than we had in 2008.

Commercial Banks on the other hand act as managers for deposit accounts. They serve both individuals and small businesses.  In the ideal the money they take in is lent out to individuals and small businesses and the economy grows.  Because they deal with the little man, or small businesses that are somewhat frail, they demand more oversight.

In September 2016 we had the Wells Fargo scandal. The employees secretly created millions of unauthorized bank and credit card accounts — without their customers knowing it, they were charging them phony fees and making off like a banshee. Wells Fargo employees secretly opened unauthorized accounts to hit sales targets in order to receive bonuses. Commercial banks need oversight.

NOTE: Like 2008 when no banking executives were prosecuted, the Wells Fargo CEO resigned and walked away free of blame. Hello?

TBTFThe seeds for the 2008 crash were sown on Bill Clinton’s watch; an inept president and his greedy banking cronies who took advantage. The economy was turned around after the 2008 crash. It took taxpayer bailouts of both American and Foreign Banks. Obama and Bernanke saved the system, but failed to fix the problem. It is the “Mom & Pop” small business that trusts these banks.  It is also the “Mom & Pop” small business culture that fueled what economic Obama recovery there was. If these little businesses get wiped out in a banking crash, or by over-regulation, it would be a bad, sad day for America.

With this in mind the new government may look at being proactive and enacting Glass Steagall. It is also a way to break up the big banks that is fair. It simplifies things.

Note well: It was the crash of 2008 that brought on the income inequality that now puts our culture at risk.

A little background on Glass Steagall:

In the roaring twenties there was so much easy money in risky-investments that several big Wall Street banks began salivating. They then decided to pull the deposit money out of trusted accounts and use this money to speculate. It wasn’t their money and it wasn’t ethical, so it all went appetite over tin cup; bankers jumped out of high windows and America went a slipping and a sliding into a great Depression.

The Glass Steagall Act of 1933 is a set of good reforms that ushered in a crisis-free period in USA financial history. We should learn from our past mistakes.

1933 the evidence of banking corruption was irrefutable: After the then ethics investigation, it was found that BANKING & BROKERING WAS A POISONOUS MARRIAGE. This little story illustrates the point.

“Young Bobby has just turned thirteen and in honor of his teenage status Dad has decided to give him a weekly allowance.  Bobby is a born entrepreneur and he and his neighbor friend, Goldy owned a lemonade stand (this was in the days before bureaucrats made this kind of endeavor illegal)

Goldy like Bobby, was also a producer and although young,she had a knack with food and drinks. Their little corner business was popular for the word had gotten around that stopping there was well worth the wait. So it came to be that Bobby had not only his allowance but also his profits. What to do with all the extra money?Bobby went to talk to Dad.

Dad called the boys together to educate them about income and outgo and savings – it seemed the right time. (Bobby had a big brother called George and Dad included him) Dad gave the boys a collective savings bank (his first mistake) and entrusted the bank to George’s care; after all he was the oldest and he was tall enough to reach to put the box on top of the closet. (Dad’s second mistake)

There was one small problem that neither Bobby nor Dad figured into the equation; George was into Pokeman Cards and his obsession had quickly got him outspending his own allowance.  George unlike Bobby and Goldy was not a producer, he was a gambler. Are you surprised that he began to steal from the box? 

As time went along it got hotter; summer is the best of all times to sell lemonade. The little entrepreneurs decided they needed a canopy. Bobby asked to get the savings-box down and was devastated to find that it was empty. What were they to do? They really needed that canopy! It was hot. 

George whined that he had always intended to pay the money back; he suggested that Dad step in and make it right and buy the canopy for Bobby, after all Dad didn’t want to see his little brother suffer, right? George’s strongest argument (which Dad bought), was that Bobby wouldn’t have been able to do the Pokeman investing by himself, so he was really trying to help him. I mean what did Bobby know about Pokeman?  He was always out there making lemonade and Goldy was now also baking. George knew a man who knew a man who said they were going to close the stand down because the kids didn’t have a licence.

Should George sell all the cards, he wasn’t sure how much he could get for them now?

Bobby didn’t want silly cards, he wanted a canopy, a canopy to give him and Goldy and his customers good shade in the summer for his lemonade stall; a local enterprise that the whole, local neighborhood agreed was a gem, was a neighborhood thriving business.

Unfortunately Dad backed George, buying into the theory that might is right.

Dad was also intimidated by the bureaucrat, clipboard in hand who had come to call.

Dad did promise to buy Bobby a canopy for Christmas, but it was too little, too late. It would be cold for a lemonade stand in December, no canopy would be needed.  And maybe, after all long before then, the city would close down the best lemonade stand in the neighborhood.

This is how two enthusiastic and enterprising entrepreneurs bit the dust.

Of course they could still work their lemonade stand without a canopy, that is until the nearby bakery persuaded the authorities that they were stealing his business.

“What?” said Bobby. 

“Regulations are designed to protect established businesses that pay taxes,” said Dad.

“Duh?” 

The lemonade stand continued for a brief while for it was still popular but it wasn’t the same. Then the city closed them down.

Neither Bobby, nor Goldy would ever recover from the betrayal after trust. It would stay with them and limit them as entrepreneurs for the rest of their lives.

**********

mom&PopPurists argue that we should let the big banks be forced into bankruptcy for that is how a free market system works. The American voter thinks this banking danger has gone away, but all that has happened is that it has been swept under a dirty carpet that is still big banking today.

It all comes back to a good law deliberately wiped out for banking greed and one inept President who lacked any kind of personal integrity.

 ***********

Bobby said to his Dad, “I think I will put my money in a real bank next time.”

Oh yeah?

Until the banks get their act together not such a good idea Bobby?

Understanding the “Tooth Fairy” AKA Central Banking

Are those who have ineptly managed Centralized Banking, planning to now break the piggy bank?

Broken Piggy bank coins everywhere

The N.W.O. which includes Centralized Banking tried to stop the Donald in the primaries, AND THEY FAILED.They tried to shore up their rotten system by foisting puppet Hillary on us all AND THAT FAILED. I suspect they have tried to assassinate the Donald AND THAT HAS FAILED (yet the dead bodies pile up BUT ON THE LEFT, that is except for Roger Stone who survived) They tried to stop the Donald in the Electoral College and THAT FAILED; start a war with Russia to distract us AND THAT FAILED; overrun America with refugees and illegal immigrants AND THAT FAILED. Rothschild predicted a stock market crash in the latter half of 2016 THAT ALSO FAILED AND the stock market went up.

BIG QUESTION: Were these INAUGURATION DAY protests & violent riots, the build up of an immigrant army in Chicago, Oakland, and on the southern border an attempted coup? Well friends, THAT TOO HAS FAILED.

If nothing else we get to realize that the enemies of America are inept and ineffective

The Constitutional Republic still stands if a bit wobbly.

In talking to CPAC Mike Pence said “As long as America stays good, America will be great.” So true. It is vital that Trump follow through on his Drain the Swamp.

Realize that there is a spiritual component to the Trump campaign. Collective prayer played a big part in his success. Standing tall with him are Black Pastors, Christian Evangelicals, and even those who follow a pure Judaism. Amazing power here.

So lets analyze the Trump strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths

  • Trump ushers in a new culture of productivity where his ability to work hard & smartly sets a bright, new example.
  • His cabinet is a chosen team of hard and smart workers.  Their professionalism contrasts with the past Obama appointees. Rex Tillerson is out of the top drawer. It is a definite plus that the people Trump has selected to play this game with him; are clean and strong, except possibly Tom Price (Health Care) who has a proven record of “insider trading”
  • Trump’s  special advisers are special: While Jared Kushner and Ivanka have leaned LEFT, their good intentions and their ability are without question. If they choose to study our heritage with Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College they will move from good to exceptional.  Steve Bannon brings a razor sharp political analysis to the table, while Kellyanne Conway has style, grace and a big, big heart.
  • Trump is keeping his promises; jobs are coming back to America.
  • He has enlisted the support of law enforcement and the military who love him. This is the strongest military in the world. It is unlikely the enemies of Trump or the USA will be able to lure them away or turn them against him.

Weaknesses:

Contrived Recession:
recessions

  • Standing together we can handle any financial threat, AS LONG AS WE ARE ABLE TO TACKLE IT one small bite at a time and are given time to get our house in order.
  • “America First” endangers the N.W.O.  On the other hand it also scares them. They may well come round to supporting a leader in the U.S. A. who can make order out of the chaos they have created.  They may even be willing to sacrifice thier man on the ground, George Soros; not nice people these. (Kissinger’s meetings with Putin, Trump & Jared Kushner seem to give credence to this possibility. Trump is dealing from strength.Here are the Key Players of the One World Order (In order of importance)
    1: Lord Jacob de Rothschild. 2: His son Nathaniel. 3: Baron David de Rothschild 4: Sir Evelyn de Rothschild 5: David Rockefeller 6: Henry Kissinger 7: George Soros 8: Lloyd Blankfein
    (Note: Jacob is 80 years old, Evelyn is 85 and Kissinger is 90; crusty old white men as the LEFT would like to call them!!!)
  • Two forces will play out one against each other during Trump’s first term: i.e. Our confidence in Trump’s leadership vs. the bad consequences from a century of bad money-management, the evidence of which we see everywhere around us.  As long as Trump is able to keep us believing, we are going to come through. He needs to buy himself and us the time to FIX America. Money is an idea backed by confidence.
  • America is a bankrupt country; therefore the appropriate rules to follow in handling the problem are the bankruptcy rules. Trump understands these and knows how to turn a bad situation around, and bring in a recovery.
  • The catastrophic consequences of the Clinton/Gramm deregulation and a failure to drain the swamp and restructure banking set us up for the crash of 2008. NOTE: Banking should be organized to reward productivity.Then Obama pulled it together with sticky tape, but he, too, failed to drain the swamp and/or restructure the banking industry. The outcome: RIGHT NOW there are even more too big to fail banks. and a derivative bubble that is about to pop.
  •  Did McConnell (found taking bribes for TPA)  and Paul Ryan (found taking bribes for Puerto Rico) choose Tom Price with proven ‘insider trading” transgressions.   Bad choice. (The good news is there is an outstanding candidate in the wings. Dr. Rand Paul has an integrity that cannot be challenged.)
  • Mnuchin on Treasury is an unknown. It is not clear if he is clean enough, or strong enough to face the challenges that are coming straight at him. His ties to Goldman Sachs are questionable. Pity Carl Icahn didn’t accept the Treasury appointment.  Good that he has joined the Trump team if not as Treasury. He is still the best choice for Treasury.

So what should be our part in this?

To protect ourselves on the financial front, it behooves us to look closely at some money fundamentals:

I remember the excitement of losing my first tooth as a child. My hardworking teacher- father made a big thing about it. He used this experience to teach me about money. I was to give up my shining, white tooth to a tooth fairy who would give me in return, something valuable. It was to be a simple transaction.  I give tooth. Fairy gives coin or note. As my father explained it to me – This is all about a fair exchange. Seemed good to me.

Have we lost sight of this fair exchange on which our systems & economy should be built?

Sadly the Tooth Fairy is not omnipotent, the State is not all powerful. You ask, can the Government, or the Federal Reserve or the Tooth Fairy not print just as much money as they want? You can read more about how the Federal Reserve works and the basics of our USA economy at “More about the Tooth Fairy.” 

There are those among us who believe the Federal Reserve & the Federal Government (the Tooth Fairy) exist to take care of all of us, but actually that is not what they are supposed to be doing. We sometimes forget that first we have to give something valuable to the community (AKA the social contract)  This work & exchange of product happens first and then in an honest and well regulated society we reap the rewards in direct proportion to what we give.

The problem, since 1913 banking privatized profits; but the losses have been legally socialized. You can read more about how it was all set up at Creature from Jekyll Island.

The FED has been around for over a 100 years, and not once has there been a full  audit of the Federal Reserve.  Somewhere lost in the middle of all this complexity is a shiny white tooth which we shall call the productivity of all good Americans.

(A debt-based financial system is unsustainable, because it creates debt bubbles and the next one going to pop will be derivatives. And this may be what they will try to blame on Donald Trump)

Trump is squarely and solidly for the shiny white tooth. He understands productivity. He also understands the enormous waste that has occurred during the last eight years. So it is not all bad, I do believe that by draining the banking swamp, and reorganizing the system, there will be a better way.

Is there anything we can do about it? Of course there is.

To fix the money in America we need a system based on true and fair exchange. One tooth , one shiny coin. We want to concentrate more on  how we make the shiny tooth, which stands for the productivity of all good Americans; your own productivity and what you give to others.

We have the right to exchange our true production for legal tender.

losing a toothWe need to get the banks to clean up their act and to stop stealing from us. We owe this to our children.

A Silent Coup Sitting on a “Gravy Train”

Can ” King” Obama still harm America?

obama shredsusTrump won the election and America should have moved on.

Now it seems America is fighting “the Resistance”. Is this a global plan to bring Obama back for his ” third term”? Men like Obama (no moral compass) do not give up power easily. As puppets they are very attractive to those rich men who pull the strings globally. The ruling elites (first time in almost a century) no longer have a puppet in the White House.

As the LEFT plans this insurrection, it seems billionaire SOROS (with his black Antifa) is right in there funding and orchestrating this unrest

George Soros has said  “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States of America.” Bankers like George SOROS fight sane banking regulation. They treat the world economy as a casino. Rumor is SOROS lost a billion after Trump was elected.

Go to Wikipedia to read Soros’ own words from his books and articles that describe his tried and true system for taking down a country – or “regime change” is what he  calls it. (sic)

Step One: Form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover.

Step Two: Control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets.

Step Three: Destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in the country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of an existing crisis — pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti-government public sentiment.

Step Four: Sow unrest.

Step Five: Provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election and during the election, you cry voter fraud.

Step Six: Take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strikes and you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations. Incitement and violence are conducted at this stage.

Step Seven: Outlast your opponent.

How far along are we down this slippery path?

soros-influence

We are already at Step six.

In choosing Trump as his opponent Soros erred. I don’t think Trump is going to crumble. Nor do I think the people of America will just lie down and let this ugly movement roll over us.  There are too many people of goodwill with a deep love for this country.

Under Soros’s “regime change” all nations are required to surrender their sovereignty to a one world government with no constitutional restraints.

Definition of Fascism: using force and violence on those who fail to see things your way.  Reagan warned us that if Fascism came to America, it would come from the LEFT.

It seems now that the black masked ANTIFA are everywhere but are they engaged in peaceful protest? Sadly, no. These are paid and trained thugs, in fact they are the true fascists. We know this because we see how the ANTIFA uprisings are so carefully orchestrated. There is nothing spontaneous in the Resistance of 2017.

OBAMA’S STATS:
Median Household Income – no increase in his 8 years as President.
Labor participation rate, the lowest in 40 years, 62.6%.
Number of Americans on food stamps up 14% to 45.36 million.
Poverty rate since 2008 shot up 17% to 47 million Americans.
Home ownership has dropped 4% to 63.7%.
National debt has almost doubled from 10.62 Trillion to almost 20 Trillion!!!!
Executive Clout For the first time ever, America’s credit ration was downgraded in 2011.
A record 95 million Americans are NOT in the labor force.

OBAMA’S CRIMES

Gave $150 Billion to Iran, world’s greatest sponsor of terrorism; traded 5 high ranking Taliban terrorists for one traitor; in his final hours, released $221 million in aid to Palestine; lifted American control of the Internet.

And there is more . . . .

From SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Why is Obama staying in Washington? Why did Valerie Jarrett move in? 

You have this what we call shadow government, deep state of career bureaucrats, these are Obama appointees that are working hard and undermining every single solitary day everything that Trump wants to do; this is not by accident. I’ve done a lot of deep background talking to people about where all this is coming from. Where are these leaks coming from? And without fail they all discuss the shadow government, deep state government. The deep state is their term that they’re telling me. Those career bureaucrats. Those holdovers from the Obama administration. And you’ve got to understand here. They are undermining the president.” [Premiere Radio Network, The Sean Hannity Show, 3/3/2017)

And having come out and said this, Sean Hannity is himself now under attack at Fox News.

These injustices will not cease until all criminals from the past eight years are brought to justice. They asked for it setting up a shadow government, they brought their crimes into Trump’s government. Shadow government is dangerous to our Constitutional Republic. Frieze their assets, lock them up.

Not all civil workers are bad. It is true that many are loath to turn on the hand that feeds them. It will take awhile but they will wake up and realize on which side their bread is now being buttered. They will come in line.

On the other hand, Obama’s “Gravy Train” poses an enormous threat to the Trump administration. When you get in the habit of accepting something for nothing this is a criminal attitude so it is these people seek out corrupt leaders, and gravitate to criminal acts. When they cross the line they must be locked up.

The biggest challenge to the GOP lies in a bloated federal government that uses criminal clout to control spending. They do this  BY THREATENING TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. If the government were shut down would it not be a good thing. This is an opportunity to sort out those who are really in need; still have a moral compass and differentiate them from the sluggards and illegals who are just along for the ride.  Trump could set a precedent, after every shutdown record how many unnecessary government workers we were able to lay off.

Sob story those poor postal workers.  Why did the Federal Government get into the postal service, UPS and FEDex do a better job.

A statistic that measures the pruning of the Federal Government, now that would be a grand statistic to keep.  There should be some reward for sifting the grain from the chaff. If this were the focus Congress and the Senate would begin to look forward to the periodic government shutdowns.

Think on this, if you give a child a toy and then try to take it away without replacing it, you are going to have a tantrum on your hands. Don’t blame Trump for all this vulgar “hissy fit protests”.  Obama and the LEFT created the unrest, both directly and indirectly. This is criminal behavior.

The Obama and SOROS ‘s play book is Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” the codification of Lenin’s guide for one-world domination.

Here are the Alllinsky rules.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people

Does any of this sound familiar?

It is hard on those pawns on the Gravy Train  who have been persuaded to use FORCE to try to keep an unfair privilege. The good news is NOW we can see them and their intentions clearly. If they cross the mark, we can deport them, or lock them up.

We have here a failure in education, useful idiots do not understand the electoral college, the American Constitution or our system of government. The marxist/global/socialist bosses know full well that  if you give people too many freebies it is hard to draw back and take them away.  Their whole play book is immoral and the challenge of this new administration is the challenge of how to undo and drain the swamp. A government shutdown is a good place to start.  If Congress doesn’t so its job, Trump should veto bills that drip of bad spending.

You wan to see this clearly:

On the bad side: “Vulgar Liberal Protests” and “Might is Right” and a break down of “Rule of Law”. Recognize also the subversion in our institutions aimed at the disintegration of our culture. Spot also the ongoing efforts to undermine our Republic and our Constitution.

On the other side is Patriots and “Make America Great Again”

How should Patriots react? We make the Resistance irrelevant. What they seek is ATTENTION so we do not give it them. Ignore the tantrums. Ignore the Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer.  It is a lot of (often vulgar) noise signifying nothing.

Then we demand that our elected representatives investigate and find the crimes, that they have the courage to bring corrupt politicians to justice and LOCK THEM UP.

shadow-gvt

We struggle mainly with ignorant lawmakers, judges and low information voters.

This new President has a firm grip on power AND HE WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP whatever the resistance.

It is time for Trump to end the corrupt relationship between the IDLE rich and the IDLE poor and put America and the world back to work.

Song at one of the Trump Rallies

Do you hear the people sing?

Singing a song of angry men?

It is the music of a people

Who will not be slaves again!

When the beating of your heart

Echoes the beating of the drums

There is a life about to start

When tomorrow comes!

Understanding War and Peace

By Griping Grandpa

Here is what I wrote to President-elect Donald Trump on his greatagain.gov website and which may be of interest to our readers as well..

Dear Mr. President-elect,

I agree with most of your statements and I have voted for you, because I too want to see America become great again. While I agree that we need a strong military, we should not become hawkish. During its history as a nation, there have been very few years when America was not involved in some military conflict. Many of these conflicts were started as a result of false flag events or by provoking conflict with other nations.

Currently, our Congress wants to impose a no-fly zone in Syria. Apparently they don’t care if they start World War 3. Russia is fighting ISIS in Syria. Is that not what we want also? Is that not more important than deposing that country’s government? I don’t see any benefit in provoking Russia. And then there is China, which might be willing to waste a billion men!

I understand who benefits from war. The banking elite loves war – they profit from financing both sides of the conflict (at interest and with money created from thin air) and afterwards from loans to repair the damage. The military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about also profits handsomely. Politicians also like war because it hides their incompetence, raises morale among the people, has them agree to draconian measures and stimulates the economy with the production of war materials.

Personally, I don’t like war and I don’t think any sane person does either. It causes great human suffering and destruction of property. I lived through World War 2 in a Nazi-occupied country and it wasn’t pretty. It is not an experience I would like to repeat. Mr. President-elect, I trust that with your negotiating skills, you will be able to end our current military conflicts and prevent new ones from occurring during your presidency.

Of course, it would be naive to believe that a well-trained and well-equipped military would be sitting idle for long, so I would propose that in addition to their destructive skills, they should also be tasked with constructive work. The military would be of great service in providing disaster relief following natural (or man-made) disasters and with one-time large projects. For instance, they could be put to work building that wall on our Southern border. Foreign governments could request such assistance as well, if prepared to pay for it, in which case our men would tackle the project, get it done and then get out fast.

Understanding the Unrest in America

(Updated- Labor Day weekend)

Those who have a clean conscience (unfortunately) make the crooked and the corrupt uncomfortable. It is no surprise that Hillary and many of her Marxist followers think something weird about Trump. They should look inwards.and examine their own moral compass and understanding of the American political constitutional system that is based on balance of power.  95% of those who oppose Trump accept “Might is Right”
and favor coercive government.  They seek to bring America down.

They are clueless about CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. They take from us without our permission.

This is America’s third crisis and you need to choose sides.  The first was when we opposed “might is right” in the old corrupt British system. We won that war of Independence.

The second crisis was when America fought and REPUBLICANS won the civil war and freed the slaves.

Then came the Digital Revolution and the International and high tech oligarchies, seeking once again to USE FORCE to destroy sovereign nations and liberty.

Make no mistake once again it is about Might is Right where the idle rich and the idle poor are stealing from the hardworking taxpayers of America. Hillary asks “what happened” – well Trump stood up to defend the forgotten men of America.

He stands for traditional values, faith, family and one nation under God. Trump enemies and the enemies of America are godless.

(2017) America is under assault from the global elites.They spread their political lies and seek a political coup, and you are being fooled if you get taken in.  It is all about elite privilege and it comes straight out of the dirty swamp.

Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make your choice

draintheswampA few of us knew that Trump was going to be the next President; and how did we know this? We read his books and studied his record and realized that when Trump decides something, that is the way it is going to be. America rejected Global, Sharia Law and American Marxism when we elected Trump. America also rejected the progressive mantra that “might is right” in favor of “rule of law” and “balance of power”. We assumed the responsibility to learn our heritage. Not all have taken the time.

The opposition is now out of the closet. Some of the ugly opposition is innocuous, uninformed with mere ideological differences. This is fine, our system allows for differences.  Unfortunately, there are still many on the LEFT like Mika and Joe Scarborough (MSM) who cannot believe that the majority in America actually want to keep our Constitution, our Civilized Culture and our Religious Liberty; sorry folks the popular vote false narrative is propaganda: doesn’t hold water when you look at the real numbers of voter fraud Judicial Watch is bringing to light.  Furthermore when you add in the numbers from third party candidates, it is abundantly clear that in November 2016, America was leaning right. Trump won the electoral college with a landslide, but most likely he also won the (legal) popular vote.

Pretending to be a Republican but working for the other side is traitor John McCain.
His wartime records are sealed but why did Nixon feel a need to pardon him – what crime is being hidden back there? Moral compass – it seems not.

Wherever McCain goes trouble ensues. He was in Ukraine before the trouble there, whenever he goes to Syria observe the conflict escalating. Now he has sunk the Repeal and Replace of ObamaCare.  And did you know that he has a foundation in full blown support of George Soros, open borders and that he fully supports other progressive agenda. McCain may be dying, but while he does he can still cause a lot of damage to the Patriot cause and America. McCain sanctimoniously is busy burying traditional Judea-Christian Western values.

Clear evidence that “the Resistance” is being orchestrated by Obama and funded by SOROS – sick. This is not just an attack on Trump but also clearly a direct attack on our American form of government, our culture and our heritage. This swamp WILL be drained.

shadow-gvt

Wanted or not by the shady & the corrupt, Donald Trump is our President and he is going to serve out eight years, as the 45th President of America.

So why all the noisy upset?

One: Swamp-dwellers
There were/are a lot of people who now stand to lose an unfair advantage and unfair privilege.

  • Sanctuary Cities
  • Federal Money given to EPA used for political advantage or protecting the silly “smelt in California” while central California tasked with feeding the nation, turns into a dust bowl. Gallons of water dumped into the sea during a drought.
  • Illegal immigrants and Refugees living off the public dole when some of our children are starving and our veterans are being neglected
  • Those gaming the legislative process
  • Teachers protected by seniority and not judged on their performance.
  • Government workers insisting on high wages and demanding high benefits, but failing the public they serve.
  • Those in high office like Clinton betraying her public trust, taking bribes (bribes laundered through the Clinton Foundation)
  • Those in high office like Clinton choosing to set up her records on a public server (SO THAT HER EMAILS COULD NEVER BE SOUGHT BY JUDICIAL WATCH ON A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST)
  • Lots of little bureaucrats raking it in on the side.
  • Main Stream Media owned by Global Interests and engaged in bias and slander, actively STIRRING THE POT.  Advertisers support MSM because they have been persuaded they control our thinking. Trump, the GOP and the The election in Georgia showed Hollywood and MSM just how irrelevant they have become.
  • There is a sick culture of moral decay and decline in Hollywood. They are also fighting the digital revolution.  We can write a song, write a book and self-publish. Hollywood relies on a rigged system government to enforce “intellectual rights”
  • Big Pharma making a killing from Government patents and regulations that protect their unfair monopoly – why can’t we buy our drugs in Canada or Mexico? Why can’t HMOs compete across state lines? Why all this government protection?
  • Farmers getting subsidies long out of date. Monsanto (GMO) permitted to hide what they are doing to poison our food.
  • Investors like George SOROS using arcane investing rules to  profit from an economic decline. (Then they use their new found wealth and power to attack our leader and our constitution)
  • People on welfare now having to learn a trade and begin to support self and family and the nation.
  • Abortion clinics relying on public funding. I am in favor of women’s choice but there is something wrong with a taxpayer being forced to fund abortions.
  • “Bad Hombres” pushing drugs into America.  The states where most drugs go are where we find the loudest protests (sad) .
    mexican-drug-infilitration
  • We begin to understand the opposition to Trump better when we realize just how much money the elites in the media and in Hollywood  stand to lose when Trump exposes their corruption, and their part in it.
  • We begin to understand the opposition to Trump much, much better when we realize just how much money is paid in bribes by corrupt corporations to corrupt politicians. These two is just the tip of the iceberg) bribery (see www.opensecrets.org)
  • And finally there are the neocons trying to stir up a war with Russia.  Clear evidence that Trump is being demonized, but we suspect so is Putin.  McCain and Lindsay Graham (both generously funded by Soros) were recently in the Ukraine and what were they doing there?
  • Then there is the United Nations. with envious third world nations with their greedy hands outstretched and we can help them, but not by giving them a hand-out. There is no reason that America is rich and Africa is poor, except for our form of government, and our creative innovation. Obama had perfected the art of using the idle poor to give to the idle rich.  Luckily Trump sees through this, and has ended this stealing from the taxpayers of America.

So many crooked, unhappy people in the world. No wonder they are terrified of Trump, Trump who is able to expose their nasty secrets with a single tweet!

Two: American Marxism
The unrest (by observation) is not spontaneous. We will never win in America if we allow other interests to subvert & divide us.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to falsify perception, or to create a false reality to justify a criminal act.

We know that this uprising is orchestrated because the demonstrators follow the same style book in every city, not just in America, proving a global strategy.

pullharderThe organized protesters shout obscenities, start fires, destroy property., these are tactics employed in times past by Stalin and Lenin.  Sadly, Marxists have been subverting our educational institutions and our youth during the terms of the last four presidents, all who favored the NWO.  It takes but a generation to steal a nation. This cries out for a full Congressional Investigation.

This Marxist influence has been blamed on Russia but that is contrary to the fact that Putin is now anti- communism and seems to genuinely believe that Communism doesn’t work. Putin/Russia has nothing to gain by subverting America. On the other hand the oligarchies of the NWO who want to rule the world, have seen an opportunity in socialism.  (Saul Allinsky)

It is an axiom of political warfare that it is not wise to assassinate popular opponents except as a last resort. Better to invalidate them in the public mind. A part of this war tactic is to pick a popular target and demonize him, blaming him for the violence.  Is this not what we are seeing with Trump? They picked the wrong man, I don’t think Trump is going to crumble.

“If you want to understand what is going on in America today, just think of the Branch Davidians. If the elites can sufficiently demonize Donald Trump and his supporters as racists or something equally repugnant, then violence against him personally or against his supporters – perhaps even violence against the system itself – will be viewed as justified.”  Need to Know News

Three: The Muslim Brotherhood
Our democratic process was designed to resolve BIG ideological differences. It has kept us away from civil war. It would have done so again were we not subverted and divided by evil within.  There is growing circumstantial evidence of infiltration of the SOROS/Obama/Hillary and the Progressive movement by the Muslim Brotherhood – an orchestrated world movement to change our culture and bring the western world to its knees, under Sharia Law.  This also cries out for Congressional investigation.

In part it is payback time for the wars in the middle East brought on by the neocons WHO ARE NOT AMERICA. We are complicit only in that we allowed it to happen.

Note: America is now at #4 on this chart while England at #7. 

Note: America is now at #4 on this chart while England is at #7.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

  • He has observed that America is in trouble, and he has decided that he is the one to make America Great Again.
  • He has the unique ability to attract honorable and able men to his side. None can challenge the production records of Pence or Ben Carson or their spiritual integrity. That they love him speaks well for Donald Trump.
  • He wants to see us safe. He wants to bring back order to America.
  • He is transparent, and tells it like it is. This is likable.
  • He understands finance; and this is something we badly need, it has become beyond vital to fix the failing economy before the next economic bubble pops (derivatives) 
  • His plan to lower taxes on the rich is coming under attack, yet what he proposes is fair and a gradient approach to handle income inequality
  • What his enemies don’t realize is that he only hits back when attacked, yet when he retaliates the counter-attack is brilliant and brutal. This president fights fire with fire.,

We all know that electing  an outsider to be President is a big step. One thing to consider though, “Constitutional  Republicanism” is so far superior to “Progressive Democracy” with its support of  “coercive government” that there is really no choice. The Left fears that Trump would be a HItler, this is the pot calling the shiny kettle black. Hitler will never come to America while we keep our constitution.

Let me clarify; In a Republic, government rules only with consent of the governed. In a global or progressive administration “Might is Right” and autocratic rule, big brother, and bullying are all fully acceptable.

This “Might is Right” is the corrupt thinking the founders left behind when America first became a nation. And that folks is what was at stake in 2016.

We were fast losing “Consent of the Governed”

We could have lost America.

Understanding “FAKE NEWS” & “Useful Idiots”

Are these UGLY protests orchestrated?

And are we all like sheep, being lead to the slaughter?

01orwell

What lies behind it? Could it be MONOPOLY?. Jimmy Carter recently said that we are ruled by global oligarchies and during election 2016 we discovered the press was also owned.

owned

““In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press….They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. “An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”- Oscar Callaway, U.S. Congressman, 1917 

We have a relatively free Social Media. There have been attempts to police it, but the glory and the truth is that Social Media has evolved beyond where the rich and powerful can bend it to their will.

Sadly (like fleas on a dog), the liberal Super Pacs  are now even paying “Useful idiot trolls” to make less of Trump supporters or constitutional conservatives on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Instagram. The best way to handle them is to delete and ignore. They create a lot of noise signifying nothing and thrive on attention.

NOTE: King Obama gave away USA control of the Internet? This was unsuccessfully challenged in a court in Texas. We hope the new administration will fill the high court with a conservative judge, and bring our Internet control back home again, where it properly exists under the first amendment.

(Not many understand our constitutional checks and balances and why it is important to keep the Internet, American. The importance is that it belongs here, where the first amendment protects against censorship)

FAKE NEWS is false news. The danger lies in having somebody decide for us what is true and what is false.  You take away our power of choice, our ability to see and decide, and we begin to hit the long slide down.

Lest you forget, it was ‘FAKE” Main Stream Media that brought us the following lies.

  • Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction
  • If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor
  • Lied us into multiple bogus wars and are still hell bent on getting us into WW3.
  • Told us Assad is the bad guy and it was Russia who broke the Cease Fire. Not true. It was USA.
  • Told us Hillary had 98% chance of winning the election
  • Told us the economy is in great shape
  • Told us that according to the polls Hillary was leading by a wide margin (this when Trump had thousands at his rallies yet Hillary and Kaine but a sprinkling. They only fooled the useful idiots. Informed Americans knew Trump would win.)
  • Told us Trump is dark & EVIL, that America is already great, that he sees it all wrong. America doesn’t need any fixing (all while our infrastructure falls apart, our inner cities collapse and American citizens murder each other, and immigrants mow down American school children and rape American women.)
  • Told us that Trump is causing the riots, Yet investigation shows those rioting are from MoveON and few of these paid agitators even voted. (Paid for by globalist SOROS)
  • Told us Donald Trump is a bigot, a racist, and a tyrant who beats up on the weak. None of this is true.
  • LOL. A progressive professor even had the arrogance to compile a list of sources of FAKE NEWS including InfoWars, Drudge, Breitbart, the Tea Party and she even listed the American Constitution as propaganda. Go figure.

The Hillary campaign was well funded and ugly, with lots of slander.  Now in 2017, even after the election it seems the insurrection is still with us propagated primarily by MSM especially CNN (false narratives)
Is this an attempted coup? Right out of the playbook of Lenin, the continuing demonization of Trump, sure makes it seem like that.  These Marxist instigators need to be traced, prosecuted and locked up.

Is this an assault not just on Trump but also on our American Way of Life and our Liberty? 

This is America folks: We can agree to freely disagree, or dare we? Are we still free to see things our way and to say what we see? When we lose our power of choice, when those in power use coercion to restrict  our liberty, we begin the long slide down a slippery soap. When some of the people get the idea that it is OK to use force on other Americans to make themselves right and the others wrong, we have already begun the long slide down the slippery slope. It is a sad day when a corrupt cabal is unwilling to let go of power.  We can definitely say THIS IS NOT the American way. Dating back to our founding fathers when George Washington left office after two terms, he went back to being a citizen-farmer. Obama seems to be having a rough time with this, or is it his puppet master, GEORGE SOROS? Obama’s last month in power has been a flurry of rogue “nuisance” executive orders. They will be undone but will cause upset on the LEFT and will be blamed on Trump. Obama knows this.

It is said that Soros has targeted America (like the Ukraine) for regime change. When he does this his first act is to set up a shadow government. Is this why Obama is still in town? For the first time in half a century, the global elites including SOROS, now no longer HAVE A PUPPET IN PLACE in the biggest and strongest country in the world, USA. Worse than that Trump has said nice things about Russia.  Russia has seen through the N.W.O, cut Russia’s currency adrift from the central banking system of the world, backed it by gold and expelled SOROS & his FOUNDATIONS from Russia, unwilling to put up with his meddling in a sovereign nation.

The ALT Left 
Marxist by ideology, the Alternative LEFT can be identified by its adherence to “Might is Right” rather than the Republican rule of law, or consent of the governed. The movement has its roots in Rockefeller’s Global Fabian Marxism been subverting our schools and colleges with false socialist ideas.

The Berkeley Riots
Both the RIGHT & the LEFT are being played by the Alt LEFT as was evidenced by men in black masks inciting to violence at the colleges. Demonization has come to America assisted by Main Stream Media. Sad day.

The Woman’s March
Although presented as for “women’s rights” the fact that pro-lifers are being excluded from the march shows this is not so much about a woman’s free choice with her body, BUT RATHER ABOUT HAVING ABORTION, STATE FUNDED. They are fighting for Planned Parenthood, about to go away. (One out of ten services at PP is for abortions) In some states with ObamaCare, abortions are also funded by the Affordable Health Care.

The Hillary N.W.O. agenda was about open borders and one-world government and population control hence the free abortions  (ironically it is mainly persons of color that have been targeted) These global elites are not nice people.  The global enemy has amassed an enormous amount of “funny” money.

Thanks to this election, more Americans are researching, reading books, going to the Twitter feeds of our leaders, and attending rallies. Many have assumed a responsibility to find out the truth FOR THEMSELVES, and many more share their realizations with others in social media. Informed Americans forswear the ugly protest/riots and know that the Russo-phobia is FAKE. Like Donald Trump, Putin is no golden boy, but he is different from those who came before him in Russia. He has seen through communism, knows it doesn’t work, he now supports orthodox Christianity and sovereign nations. That said there has always been bad blood between us and Russia has to be dealt with fairly, but from a position of strength. Trump understands this. He is no pawn in Putin’s chess game.

Have to ask, is this FAKE NEWS narrative and the exaggerated Russo-phobia a ruse to make sure Putin & Trump NEVER reach detente?  For I tell you, if they do, the global game is OVER.

What of the rest of us, we the people who Lenin used to call “Useful Idiots”?

Alinsky’s radical rules are a simplification of Lenin’s plan for conquest of the world. In Lenin’s writings “we the people” are called “Useful Idiots” to be scammed, manipulated and used. Here is Alinsky’s advice to the elite oligarchies and crooked politicians TO HELP THEM KEEP THEIR DIRTY AND UNFAIR PRIVILEGE.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people
  9. In the war of political PR, pick a target, freeze it, personalize and polarize it. Spot the lies by the LABELS, the obvious slander AND THE GENERALITIES. Look around you. Things don’t happen just by chance. Does any of this sound familiar?

How to respond to FAKE NEWS? Demand respect from all who come on your lines, and demand a fair objectivity. Go on line and pull strings. When you know the truth you cannot be duped. Become more like “Trevor”

For the rest, FAKE NEWS is a lot of ugly noise, signifying nothing.  Ignore.

In America we have a long history of liberty, but we nearly lost our freedom in 2016. Those who wish to enslave us, continue to try so hard to get us to tarnish our Constitution, for they KNOW THIS IS WHAT KEEPS THEM OUT. We have to resist all efforts to TAKE DOWN our Constitution.

All that America needs to do to become great again, is for a healthy majority, to gain the ability to take the bucket off their heads.

Understanding”Useful Idiots” and “Saul Allinsky”

Now is time to come together as patriots and to rebuild.

Power is only lasting within a framework of balance. It was the American Constitution that gave our country a chance to be great and prosperous. This is because there was a natural balance between the Executive, Judiciary and a Legislature AND free and fair elections. It was the Constitution that gave America a chance to vote out crime and corruption.

America (up until now) has been a land governed WITH THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED but in 2016 we nearly lost it. Luckily the majority came through. The people in America have not been happy with the last fifty to eighty years. Watch this short video. We sense, but do not actually know, how badly we have been scammed.

Useful Idiot

Sadly, in the last eight years thanks to shady legislators (like Reid & Boxer) representative government became an endangered species.  One wonders if they werre ever honestly elected, what with illegals voting and crooked voting machines (Project Veritas)  America rejects sleight of hand legislation and ultra, heavy handed EPA regulations stifling progress. What a problem our good constitution is to those who want to keep an unfair privilege. We have been taken into a precarious range of debt, endangering our future and the future of our children and even our grandchildren.

Ask yourself why is America richer than Mexico, why did America become a super power while the beautiful Mexico, same continent, good natural resources,struggles with poverty & crime & corruption? The reason is Mexico does not have “Balance of Power” it does not have our constitution. Mexico and much of the rest of the world have a problem of CRIME AND CORRUPTION but then most of the rest of the world does not YET operate under true balance of power; the brilliant pattern of the American Constitution. We are poor in America in exact degree that we let go of our heritage. Income inequality is a major problem in America and worse in Mexico and the rest of the world. It is the Constitutional form of Government that puts in the checks and balances to open the door to the American Dream and to distribute the wealth fairly.

We did something right when we become prosperous and a super power and our responsibility is to share our successful actions with other sovereign nations through education. 

Useful Idiots:

  • Get most or all data from TV, filtered as it is by a bought Main Stream Media
  • Fail to fact check the ideas they accept and operate on and use as stable data.
  • Fail to take the effort to learn a trade and work to support self, family and the nation.
  • Are influenced in their voting by welfare, and the largesse of the state.
  • Tend to believe authority and that might is right, however irrational.
  • Believe slander and cabal & rumor

Saul Allinsky refers to “we the people” as “Useful Idiots”.

So let’s take a hard and critical look at America as it has evolved over the last eight years. Do you recognize these points in the “new” fabric of our culture? Here is Alinsky’s advice to the elite oligarchies and crooked politicians to help them hold on to an elite and unfair privilege.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people

We know that Hillary has studied Allinsky when at University. We also know that Obama has referred to Allinsky quite fondly from time to time. We also know that these rules are from Lenin when he was aiming at world control. (An America that sees itself as a soveriegn nation WILL RESPECT other soveriegn nations.  A constitutional America does not engage in imperialistic wars.

In electing Donald Trump, America rejected globalism and THE directed history of global elites. We also rejected imperialism.

We chose America First

Will you, too?

Understanding Bad Legislation

Dirty Tricks have been used to pass Bad Laws

We have a sound system given us by the founders. And it works but if we don’t find & INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE the enemies within, we could be losing America to global oppression.

When we talk of making a law, this is the ideal: One transparent source, one subject, one bill, enough time for politicians to read the bill, enough time for the electorate to weigh in on the bill, a simple up/down vote ON THAT ONE SUBJECT and a two thirds majority where applicable. Could it be simpler? Simple is good.

Sadly this is not how it works in Washington. Do you wonder why Congress has such a low approval rating?

LOL. The Senate has just voted in favor of a continuing resolution, a funding bill for the Federal Government’s spending until Dec. 9.

The only problem is that there was no bill. They were voting on a nothing. 

There was no text for this bill, yet the Senate voted 89-7 to proceed to this nonexistent bill. This is a 2016 government spending bill that should have been written and discussed and negotiated and published long before Congress went on vacation.

Congress has the job to make laws but it also has the power to set budgets and thereby control spending. This gives them the means to curb excesses or corruption in the Executive or the Judiciary. The three functions of government should be balanced one against the other. No more.

In Sept 2016 there are two federal excesses Republicans should have been controlling, the Internet handover and secondly the the high cost & ethics of the “Refugee Invasion” Neither was addressed in this the latest McConnell sellout.

If voting on a bill that doesn’t even exist were not so potentially tragic, it would be laughable. 

01one bill

The Mitch McConnell-Harry Reid era has witnessed a Senate that is less transparent, where individual members are less aware of their rights, and where there is a growing centralization of power in the leader’s office.

Not okay 

McConnell finally produced the bill giving Senators only four days to study it before voting (two of these were weekend days)  Was it planned to slide this through while everybody’s attention was on the first Debate?

Sadly, this is not the first time this irresponsibility has happened.

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

Glass Steagall (1933 -1999) was legislation that curbed income inequality. The biggest challenge we face to day is income inequality.

Glass Steagall was repealed right at the end of Bill Clinton’s watch and it has been said that this and the irresponsible deregulation that occurred during the Clinton second term, sewed the seeds for the BIG CRASH of 2008. Robert E. Rubin and Mr. Summers, also culpable for our current economic woes, still maintain strong influence in the Hilary campaign. Neither has been investigated nor prosecuted.

TBTF

Glass- Steagall was designed to limit conflicts of interest and the creation of over bloated banks with questionable assets that in 2016 are again getting too-big-to-fail.

Banks would never have needed the bail-outs, while still being banned by Glass Steagall from underwriting securities. Glass Steagall is a simple law and it forces banks to choose between being a simple lender or an underwriter (brokerage). It is a good law and it worked for half a century.  It could work again today. Derivatives (which were banned by the Glass Steagall) are fast creating the next financial crisis. We have a dangerous situation with even more banks that are too big to fail.

Along with this forming bubble, is the unsustainable debt the quality needed most in the next president of 2016 is a clean slate with regards to finances. Even more than that we need a STRONG president to help us handle any fallout that may occur from what is still a condition laid in by Bill Clinton, his economic advisers and the big banks.

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

The Federal Reserve Act was enacted on December 23rd 1913 to create the Federal Reserve and the Central Banking System.  It was slipped through Congress while most of the delegates were away on holiday!

How effective has the Federal Reserve been in managing our money?  Statistics show they did turn the economy around in 2008, but that the recovery for main stream has been tepid at best. Small business is still struggling and too many people are living paycheck to paycheck. They can’t blow thier horn on having had much success. Of most concern is this is the USA debt that they have created for our children.

At this point in time, the Fed is an established part of the fabric of our system of money but there should be more oversight.  Significant efforts to get a complete audit of the FED have so far failed. There has been no complete audit of this establishment in the over 100 years of its existence.

They have allowed the market to turn into one giant casino and should be audited and held accountable.

ObamaCare

cost of obamacareIt is still too early to evaluate this expensive Act; so far there have been some good and some bad consequences. We do know though that it is costing the country money. So be it. What we can say with an absolute certainty is that ObamaCare is not a law crafted with legislative integrity.

ObamaCare was passed by democrats; not a single Republican voting for it and there were some legislative shenanigans used to force it through; making it a coercive law.  Is it any wonder that the GOP rage about healthcare is still escalating?

Harry Reid in 2009 was confident he “just” had the 60 votes to get OmbamaCare passed; however according to congressional rules, (like now) such a bill could not originate in the Senate as it is a revenue bill. So Reid went ahead and found an old Senate bill HR3590 (a military housing bill) and stripped the bill of its original language, thereby creating ObamaCare. Huh? You get it. That’s right. ObamaCare began with a confused identity.

There were other problems: The house wanted to make some changes to the bill and the house-amended version was scheduled to go back to the Senate for approval.  Unfortunately in the interim Senator Teddy Kennedy died getting himself replaced by a Republican. Hello! Reid no longer had the votes to get the amended Act approved.

He cut a deal; the House would pass the Senate’s original bill (no changes) and in addition the House would create a new bill that tabled all the desired changes calling it a reconciliation bill. After all who cared about the changes? The bill is so long and complex that nobody was going to read it anyway.

ObamaCare was not created by politicians; it was created by Big Pharma and their lawyers, nothing representative here.  Nothing simple here.

Of course with a Reconciliation Act tagged on, this only further complicated the complex bill.  Note: Such a use of a reconciliation bill is also contrary to congressional rules.

Twice now the Supreme Court has rubber-stamped ObamaCare raising the question, given its blatant illegality, are there any other dirty tricks here in play like blackmail?

None of these above laws could have been passed or been forced on us had there been a true integrity in the legislative process and an ethics body to investigate and make sure our politicians play by the rules.

What the corrupt Senate does not know is that it is a new day and the American citizen is coming to take his country back. This kind of legislating is totally unacceptable. We are expected to follow these bad laws.  So we are going to expect our elected officials to shape up. Minimally they should be carefully studying and understanding all bills before they vote on them. And they need a moral compass when voting.

Let them all be put on notice: We are recording their votes and holding them accountable.

2016 should also be the year when we have the courage to hold our banks accountable, demanding that those who manage our money and our healthcare, do so in the interest of the greater good.

Understanding Trade

Not all Trade Deals are Good for America

With ObamaTrade the devil is in the details, hidden from Congress & the American people

Why does America seek Trade agreements?  We all agree we are better off if we trade with our neighbors, so what is the deal here?   While many Trade deals are good and put America First with ObamaTrade the American Citizen loses out. It is a lot worse than that though, with ObamaTrade America gives up her sovereignty.

This is serious guys. No vote should be cast on this lightly.

This is a Trade Deal destroys our Sovereignty

This is a Trade Deal destroys our Sovereignty

The TPA was sneaked through the Senate at the end of May 2015, and this was largely a matter of timing. It was put through when all eyes were on Rand Paul and his epic filibuster. Despite feeble efforts to inject it with continuing life, Paul forced the Patriot Act to die an ignoble death. This was something good.

However, there was something else happening in the wings? With a lot of bribe money in his back pocket, Obama was hard and fast working the politicians in Congress to get TPA approved.  And he succeeded. TPA is designed to give the President (and his executive branch) the sole authority to negotiate trade treaties and and in the face of this, Congress becomes almost irrelevant. Not a good scene, the imbalance between the Legislature, the Judiciary and the Executive was already out of whack, and this just made it even worse.

unconstitutionalA lot of money went into getting TPA passed; paid for by the U.S. Business Coalition for TPP. Donors to the Coalition were Goldman Sachs, followed closely by Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and members of the military industrial complex, which included GE, Halliburton and Northrop Grumman. The Coalition bought Senate support for $1,148,971 being given as bribes to senators, an average of $19,673.28 for Republicans and $9,689.23 for Democrats.

TPA was enacted to ensure fast passage TPP, otherwise called ObamaTrade.

Does this tell you anything?

What congressional rights did Congress give up with the passage of TPA?

Congress gave up the power to write legislation, the power to amend legislation, the power to fully examine legislation, the power to predict and investigate the consequences to a specific bill.  In addition Congress gave up the chance to keep debate open until cloture. Most of all Congress gave up the constitutional requirement that Trade-treaties can only be approved  by a full two-thirds vote.

Both Presidential candidates have said they will disapprove ObamaTrade (TPP) However this is a global play, and Clinton if anything, is a global candidate who was for TPP before she was against it.  Still . . .

Obama is back with even more (I suspect) Global bribe money He wants to get TPP approved during the lame duck session. So in order to be sure to get presidential approval he has to get it signed WHILE HE IS STILL PRESIDENT. What better time than around the holidays after all the excitement of the election when nobody is looking. He is still calling the shots, yet nobody is seeing it like that, he has legal power. Expect another titillating controversy to absorb our protest and attention while he sneaks it through.

Why would this would be a disaster?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is not TPA, that now a done deal. It is a complex and convoluted legislation that has been shrouded in secrecy. Few of the Congressmen who will finally have to ratify it, have even read it.

TPP (ObamaTrade) is a trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries. The finalized proposal was signed on 4 February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, concluding seven years of negotiations. However IT IS NOT LAW UNTIL RATIFIED BY CONGRESS in an up down vote which now only has to get a 50% majority.

Donald Trump says, there are good and bad Trade Deals. and this is one abomination. How so? With this new trading block we have something akin to the EU set up, with a bureaucratic stranglehold on true free Trade. True free trade is good, but this is not that.

There is a lot in ObamaTrade that has nothing whatsoever to do with trade:

  1. Strong patent protection rules for Big Pharma. This increases cost of medications globally, putting a burden on the global poor
  2. Changes to the USA copyright law. Under the TPP, copyright terms for individuals would go from life of the author plus 50 years to life of the author plus 70 years.
  3. Worst of all are the International-Investor Tribunals. There are provisions that grant foreign investors the right to sue governments on the basis of vague and broad obligations regarding loss of “expected” profits. Such suits would not be decided by judges appointed for life in the American courts which subordinate to the Constitution. Where special interests appoint both the judge and the jury we can expect arbitrary justice.Let me give an example. It seems Goldman Sachs may have had a part in the crash of the Greek economy (done with currency finagling) So let’s just say the Greek people wake up and elect a new government.  They are good people and want to follow rule of law.

inijustrice

So they investigate the situation and yes they think there are financial crimes. They are quite sure there are financial crimes. They sue

Any chance of them winning? Wake up to the real world, now dominated by TPP. The court finds for Goldman Sachs, after all did they not lose profits?

So we are about to subject our jurisprudence to tribunals appointed by the corporate oligarchies. Might is right and there will be no justice. America has been snookered into losing her sovereignty.

You see Obama Trade operates ABOVE THE CONSTITUTION. With this transfer of authority legislators give up their god given right to do their job as defined by the constitution.

Sadly there is an unhealthy imbalance between the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary; ObamaTrade makes this far worse.

jobsAnd finally jobs, jobs, jobs  which just happens to be our weakest area. TPP like NAFTA & TAFTA will steal jobs from good Americans.

Yes Donald Trump, there are good deals and bad deals and this one is an abomination.


 Where to from Here?

So what really happened when TPA was railroaded through the Senate when nobody was looking? Did we lose our country? And what of the everyday citizens and taxpayers of America? Do we still have any of the rights left given us in the Constitution?

The people of America do not like the TPP; polls show this clearly. RINOs beware.  Polls show an overwhelming majority oppose TPP and they are out there on Social Media howling their outrage. Politicians who support TPP should wake up and smell the coffee and vote their conscience and for America and not for their back pocket.

Polls or voting won’t defeat TPP; it’s too far along. It is only if we stand together to oppose this assault on our constitution, our heritage and our rights; if we stand up and speak out, and get right in the face of power, will the people be able to overcome TPP’s plutocracy.

These words were spoken by the Libertarian candidate in Politics IOU ( the Election that Spooked the Elites)
