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?

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.

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  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.  

Let’s 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. Is it actually true that Putin is the bad man?

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 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;  Podesta used a password called “password” no security there, and we all know of Clinton’s woeful technical irresponsibility (if not criminality) on her own private server.

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?

People in glass houses should not throw stones.

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” Hillary to attacking her as WEAK it was a game changer and Russia had nothing to do with that. .

America is experiencing its third crisis – the assault on God & traditional American values. The attack comes from permissive progressive thinking sweeping the globe.The Trump campaign identified the essense to this kind of thinking which is “might is right”.   A lot of Hillary’s followers didn’t mind that she was crooked, they were also swamp dwellers, but for those who value “might is right” what the Trump Team had to do was to make their candidate look weak and feeble. This they did,  oh so successfully, this they did, and the rest is history.. I repeat Russia had nothing whatsoever to do with this.

(This never-ending #russophobia smacks of being a classic third party action with intent to lead to war. Could it be that maybe both America (under Trump) and Russia (under Putin) are both innocent?

It should also be noted that it was the Obama administration’s job to secure the integrity of the election from domestic and/or foreign interference.

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 see 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. It is with good reason Putin enjoys such strong support in his own country.

(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.

Definitely full investigation of what actually happened in Ukraine and Crimea should be part of Mueller’s Russia investigation. The investigator should look at constitutional and unconstitutional American activity. We the people want to know what John McCain and Lindsay Graham were doing in Ukraine?

Lot of contrary data regarding Russia: So the informed voter quietly collects his facts and waits and prays for it to all unravel. The informed voter also asks the salient question, who profit from regime change in the middle East? And who profits from regime change in Eastern Europe? Does the American voter support regime change as a key component to how we want of our elected leaders to conduct our foreign policy? Is all this global imperialism constitutional?

We see that Politicians like John McCain (bought and paid by SOROS) and the LEFT (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.

As to “collusion” pretty shady area and do we even want to try and control this?  Recent elections have been nasty and 2016 was the most brutal of all. In the election of 2016 proven evidence of foreign collusion via the Clinton Foundation.  Not a good idea to go there, not a good idea on either side of the aisle, no profit for it doesn’t improve conditions.

Trump may lose support in 2018 or 2020 if it were found he or his team members were doing business with a foreign government, however I think Americans take this with a grain of salt as they do Obama’s wire-tapping. Does Obama have more legal liability than the Trump crowd, probably? The question is how does America see it? I think we are all getting bored.

Regarding Trump colluding with Putin or Russia:

doomed

“At the moment, there simply aren’t enough facts to make any kind of judgment regarding anyone’s criminal conduct. So for the time being, we suspect that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is more interested in assembling facts than in reaching any conclusions regarding what sort of collusion or coordination would be actionable under what sort of law.”

The only way swamp dwellers can impeach Trump would be in a corrupted atmosphere of justice, which includes omitted investigation of the BIGGER PICTURE. (with all relevant players)

The big danger is third party interference not in the fact of the election but in our press and the deep state with proven demonization. NOw that would be true INTERFERENCE IN THE ELECTION.  We the people want to keep THE PRESIDENT WE ELECTED, we also want to keep the process. If the Left wants to do away with Trump, they should challnege him in honest elections in 2020.

 

False Narrative #3 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 #4
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 #5 Trump’s Travel Ban is unconstitutional and is racially motivated – false

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 asking, 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 # 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.

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.

Seven Deadly Sins (Mahatma Ghandi) 

Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience

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.

Preamble:

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

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 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.

& Budget                 Division                         Division

(There are only two Secretaries reporting directly to the President)
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.

Quote for the Week

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

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 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.

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?

Legend: Man = Int Oligarchies (one world government, dictatorship)
Dog = MSM
Trevor = Truth Media

And then here we all are, the sheep. More and more of us are out there looking, researching, pulling on strings and becoming more and more like Trevor.

conspiracy

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)

Understanding Global (July Fourth 2017)

What does it mean to be American?

It means you love your country, and you understand your constitution.

It means you are willing to fight to keep your heritage.

It means you always put your country first.

statue-fireworksOn this special day, although there is not yet a civil war, there is a fierce PR war and each American needs to decide where he stands.

The global oligarchies with gobs of money, and mighty paid political consultants spin a fancy theme. Do your homework, be sure you find and fully understand the hidden agenda. Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make your choice.

Remember the choice is simple. Elite vs American Patriot. The truth is always hidden in complexity.

International Elite vs American Patriot

A little history; Our nation’s story began in 1776. and by 1900 American steel production had outstripped that of all other nations. The USA had over 200,000 miles of railroads by 1914, more than all the rest of the world put together. An abundance of American farm products and manufactured goods were being shipped abroad in American-made ships. A healthy balance of trade to say the least.

Sadly, the latter part of the 19th century a new corrupt aristocracy was forming, namely “corrupt captains of industry” bankers, traders and manufacturers, sometimes called “the Robber Barons”.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Big government was invented to bring “The Robber Barons”  to heel.  And so the progressive movement was launched. Move forward to the twenty-first century where under Obama it culminated in an out-of control nanny-state and  an out of control crooked, coercive progressive movement. Then along came Trump.

This is America’s third crisis, the first was when we won freedom from England and “might is right” corrupt royals.  The second was the Civil War and the third has been playing out for a long time. This is a systematic assault on our heritage and the fundamentals of the Constitutional Republic.  The fight is now out of the closet and America is waking up. It is time to re-evaluate where we are going? Digital (computers) have accelerated a movement towards a secret one-world government percolating for well over a century.

What is the New World Order? It is is a group of international elites who truly believe they know what is best for us, and for the world. Some are sincere, some favor it so they can keep an unfair privilege. In this second tier we find the companies who have  successfully sidestepped anti-trust laws Amazon, Google, Facebook, Montsanto and, yes Saudi Arabia. If you google New World Order you will find a list of all such oligarchies. You will also find them attending the CFR (Council for Foreign Relations) and the Bilderberg meetings.

Power corrupts and absolute Power corrupts absolutely

In a New World Order there would be an end to nation-states. Global oligarchies which already control the world, would begin to do so openly, now they still do it in secret. They would create obedient zones, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, demonstrably corrupt and easy for global oligarchies to dominate.

At first glance the global idea may seem to have benefits for mankind, certainly it has an appeal to the international elite, the next strata down from the top one percent. These second-tier global players have accumulated wealth throughout the last century.  This is the strata of billionaire players who have learned to game the system in their better (often immoral) interests.

More than any other industry, international banking has profited from GLOBAL. Today (although they are declining in number) we have more investment bankers than lawyers, doctors, or those who build things. In order to make America Great e are going to have to do an audit of the banking investment rules.  Dangerous to our nation is the banking mis-handling of futures and derivatives.

The New World Order is being sold to all as a world without war, with equality and fairness for the benefit of all world citizens. When we look a little deeper we see that we are being played.

Who stands to lose most under a Trump presidency. Is it not those who profit from an unfair elite advantage? “America First” stands in direct opposition to the NWO with its open borders and the arrogant right to move people around the world like pawns in a chess game, and to block reproduction. In a global order there is no room for an American Constitution with its balance of power.

Patriots do not want war, especially a war that does not serve America. Therefore the new Trump era is presenting a challenge to Global and the corrupt Military Industrial Complex and the treasonous Deep State (who serve their global masters)  The rot at the FBI reached its highest levels under the Obama Administration and FBI Director Comey

It seems the New World Order is breaking up with the death of Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzenski, architects of the global order.  What remains as a threat to America is the fallout.  American Marxism/International Socialism is still being pushed by George Soros, Obama & Antifa. Also to be watched is Islam, Sharia has a global component and with its use of violence against civilians, must be called out as an immoral religion. Not all Muslims are bad but the onus is on them to progress as a group and a religion, beyond terrorism.

Socialism is very attractive to the global oligarchies who hold an inordinate amount of power in the world. Far easier to dominate and control. This is why “treaties” like the Paris Accord and TPP/TPA Trade deals are so dangerous for America.  HIdden in the small print are rules and regulations that have not been subjected to congressional oversight and the consent of the governed and tend to benefit corrupt global players. The Trade deals Trump rejected set up a whole system of courts that were given more power than our American  judiciary.

shadow-gvt

And what of war? Both Obama and Bush and other presidents have bypassed Congress taking our country into a series of endless wars that have not benefited Americans.  There is a lot of international money in armaments.

NOTE WELL: Article One Section Eight of the Constitution says “To CONGRESS is given the power to declare war.” War may only be declared by Congress (after due investigation, inspection AND DELIBERATION of the facts. Hostilities against a neutral state are also seen as acts of war and not mere violations of neutrality. Under Presidents Obama and Bush the Executive violated the Constitution in its foreign policy and caused harm and yes, there have been consequences.

So the propaganda that global brings peace, it just doesn’t hold water. On the contrary. Patriots, working together and honoring our differences with no intent to DOMINATE and no coercive use of BIG GOVERNMENT, this is what makes for world peace. 

When we look back in history we see that we prospered when we followed our constitution. It is the constitution that polices corruption.

Could it be that when our lawmakers all learn and fully understand and follow the constitution that there will again be peace and prosperity?

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

For nearly a century, the world has depended on the protection and leadership provided by a strong, independent United States of America. Considering the corruption that absolute power always seems to bring, a powerful world government would be a catastrophe.

There has been a deliberate effort for over almost a century for global players to destroy our Constitutional Republic. Trump put the people front and foremost and promised  GOVERNMENT ONLY WITH THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.

Conclusion
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. They see we are under assualt.

My father was not an American but he would have loved America. He had a warm heart, a nimble mind and a free spirit. I could always rely on his wisdom during troubled times. Sadly thanks to the unchecked global corruption of the past fifty years, (four past GLOBAL presidents) America and the world has entered into troubled times. Can we trust the creators of the New World Order to have our better interests at heart?

Dad said, “In troubled times mend your relationships and reinforce your roots.”

With this in mind I signed up for this free online course on the American Constitution (one hour a week for ten weeks). There I found solutions. I also  found it liberating in these troubled times.  There is freedom in understanding what good government is. Guess what it is always only government with and by consent of the people.

What we don’t want is a global agenda where we are being played. We don’t want a movement operating in secret designed to keep for some an unfair and corrupt advantage. We don’t want a skewered system.

Much depends on Donald Trump and how well he and his Team-Trump understands global.

Why Do Attacks On Trump Continue Despite Massive Popular Support?

By Griping Grandpa

Donald Trump has been criticized, attacked and ridiculed, not just by others running for President, but also by members of his own party, who apparently would prefer to see Hillary in the White House.

“Why?” you may ask.

Mr. X

Before I answer that, let me tell you about the person who, for convenience, I call “Mr. X”. Actually, Mr. X is not really one guy; he represents a type of person who cares about little else than accumulating vast amounts of money and power. In truth, there are many such guys. and have been for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. A few of them were very successful and floated to the top of the pyramid. Keep that in mind, but for now, let’s stick with the idea of a Mr. X. That’s easier to visualize and focus on.

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X is super rich. How did he get that way? Well, once upon a time, there was a war. Wars are very expensive, you know. You have to pay all those soldiers, buy them uniforms, guns and ammo, as well as feed them. And wars tend to drag on. After a while one side was running out of money and instead of quitting at that time, Mr. X came to the rescue. He ran a bank and was looking after the savings of many people. So he lent them money. “No rush,” he said, “You can pay me back, with interest, after the war.” So it was agreed. Soon afterward the other side also ran out of money, so Mr. X extended the same offer to them. When the war was over, Mr. X scored big. Not only did he have two governments that owed him money and/or favors, but whole cities had to be rebuilt and lots of money was needed for that. Mr. X again came through with new loans at interest.

More wars followed, with Mr. X helping out. He prospered beyond his wildest dreams. Not only did he have heaps of money, he had several governments – the ones that couldn’t pay off the loans – in his pocket. (Kind of silly, if you think about it. The governments shouldn’t have started wars in the first place, but if they did, they didn’t have to borrow money – they could have printed their own.)

Mr. X was very clever, in a fiendish way. He applied four principles to strengthen his wealth and power:
1. Create debt, by lending money at interest. If they can’t pay off the loan, take their property or secure favors.
2. Create scarcity. Wars will do that, as will economic boom-bust cycles. Both of these can be created at will.
3. Create fear. People in fear can’t see what is really going on and become ineffective.
4. Create conflict. The old “divide and conquer” principle, preventing people from handling what really undermines them.

Today, Mr. X still does the banking trick. Here in the US, his job is made quite easy. If you deposit $100 into the bank, Mr. X will lend $1000 (which he doesn’t really have) with interest by writing a check. It’s totally legal. And you wonder why most people are broke. But Mr. X’s influence extends far beyond banking. He’s got his finger in just about every pie: money, energy, agriculture, education, the media, medicine, manufacturing, trade, politics and religion, to name a few. His goal is world domination.

For many years the media dismissed mention of Mr. X as”conspiracy theory” and laughed it off as paranoid imagination, but today we have more than a theory, thanks to Wikileaks and whistle blowers.

Trump

Trump’s plans clash with Mr. X’s agenda. Here are some examples of why Trump does not fit the mold.

1. Trump puts America first. Any rational American would agree that one should put one’s own house in order before trying to change the rest of the world. Mr. X wants a borderless world, which will make it easier to control.

2. Trump wants to boost the economy by renegotiating trade agreements so they are more favorable for America. He wants to bring back American companies that have moved to other countries, which should bring back previously lost jobs and raise prosperity levels. Mr. X does not want a prosperous America. The United States, with its tradition of individual freedom is the greatest obstacle to achieving world domination, so he wants us to struggle and to become more and more dependent on government support.

3. Trump wants to control immigration. He rightly is against illegal immigration, as law-abiding people should be against any illegal activity, and he wants would-be immigrants vetted to ensure they endorse the American way of life. Mr. X wants to bring in vast numbers of refugees from majorly different cultures, so he can divide (Christians vs. Muslims for example) and conquer.

4. Trump wants to return control over education to the States. Mr. X wants the schools to teach his one-world propaganda and keep the students dumb, igmorant, cowed and obedient to authority. Mr. X does not want bright, independent thinkers. Widespread drug use of course helps him with that.

We can’t be sure that Trump, as President, would fulfill all of his promised reforms, but as a billionaire himself, he does not need financial support from Mr. X, which is a big step in the right direction.

We are all complicit, to some degree, in allowing Mr. X’s influence to become so pervasive. We can do something about it by getting out of debt, educating ourselves, spreading the word and not getting involved in any “us vs. them” conflicts.

If you value your (and your children’s) freedom and life and do not want to further Mr. X’s one-world keep-everyone-poor agenda, you know who to vote for.

Open Letter to Kellyanne Conway

Some thoughts about polling to win:

how to win

As a Trumpster I should like to welcome you and Steve Dannon to the Trump Train!

I write  a political blog called “Grandma Thunder an Independent Voice” – been doing it since  April 2011, which is when I first became concerned about America.

I am active on social media, 12,000 impressions on Twitter last week. And so I see and hear much. To meet the needs of my “independent” blog  I visit the traditional Republican blogs, but also go a visiting for good content on the Left, or wherever I find “Energy, Sanity & Good Spirit”.

My aim as a writer is to understand and to pass these “understandings” along. 

So as an  “Independent” why do I also class myself as a “Trumpster” during this election cycle?  Usually I am very careful not to take sides. It is because I am well informed and know that in 2016 America (and the world) is on the tipping point. It is not a time to sit comfortably “on the fence”

Let me share with you an analysis from Gallup on issues close to the hearts of voters in 2016; interesting, because they assign importance by party. Gallup is asking all the traditional questions and there are some useful insights to be gleaned – but only in part.  This Gallup analysis does not fully align with what I am actually seeing and hearing in social media. It does not explain in any which way, why American citizens become Trumpsters?.

imp issuesThis analysis is useful but incomplete.

It seems Gallup has no inkling that election 2016 is about “patriot vs global”
I find this also in MSM and also from the Clinton political consultants where they see and call the Trump movement “populist”. Blind they are  because with blinkers on they truly cannot explain his popularity.

The best thing about Trump is that he is an outsider.

Define outsider: somebody not part of the GOP Elites or the Democratic Elites but most of all not a member of the global club. Election 2016 is really about Global vs. Patriot. 

Gallup like all the political consultants and corrupt media are still stuck in the old, corrupt, entrenched politics, politics that we Trumpsters well know have failed us.

What questions did Gallup omit? Questions directed at the following:

Authenticity: We see this as integrity – the courage to see what you see, and say it and not pander to the donors, the lobbyists and the special interests.

“I am who I am,” Trump told a Wisconsin TV station, “It’s me. I don’t want to change. … I don’t want to pivot. … If you start pivoting, you are not being honest with people”  We like this.

Trumpsters have a moral compass, and we want our elected candidates to also adhere to a personal moral code.  We vote for Trump because with his money he has been able to avoid the corruption that has become cemented into the political process.

The issue of Globalism is very important to Trumpsters. We don’t want it. It is not that we have no global perception or responsibility but we (like Trump) see the world as a collection of Nation-States getting along. No imperial wars.

We don’t want our jobs sent overseas to China, Mexico or India.

We are very concerned by the rise of “coercive” government eg LGBT The rumor is the AG is compiling a “Hit List” for those “questioning” climate change.  In California citizens are now “forced” to inoculate their children. Hello? If we don’t handle this coercion in this election, we are stepping onto a slide that has no bottom.

We hate monopoly and think this should be controlled & policed by Justice; a Justice that has not been doing a good job with the anti-trust laws for a long time.

We reject hypocrisy: Into that same phony bucket we throw RINOs  (know them by how they spell this word RINO (Republicans in Name Only) If you are a true Republican, you find the time to understand and study the constitution. Actually if you have integrity you do it every election cycle. One hour a week with Hillsdale College Constitution 101, excellent free course. Do that and you can’t vote (like Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan, McCain and McConnell & McCarthy) for Trade Deals that subordinate America to International Courts.

Trumpsters support the natural rights of the Declaration of Independence, not the socialistic Human Rights from the U.N.

We are well enough informed to know that the Fox slander on Roger Ailes has no substance.  Trumpsters welcome Roger to the Trump Train. We welcome his incredible. brilliance and expertise.  We need his experience to help us win in November. Good that he got out of the hypocritical FOX. With us when we win, his future is golden

You will see throughout my blog posts where I talk about “Moral Compass”  Trumpsters want to bring morality back to America. Trumpsters support churches and religion and prayer and religious freedom and a constitution founded on “natural” rights. Some of us are acutely concerned by the progressive’s continuing assault on the Constitution and on Justice.

Trumpsters are aware that “Immigrants and Refugees” is one giant SOROS gerrymandering plan for America.  Overwhelm America with these illegals and         unvetted Muslim refugees, and  “Progressives” have a majority for decades. Even worse we suffer an increase of terrorism.

Trumpsters intensely dislike the “rigged system”  So issues like Voter Fraud are high on our list of “importances”.

trump promise

Grandma’s Conclusions:

  1. The left are running a brilliantly, nasty campaign. Their main strategy is to use ridicule to slander Trump and to block his message.  He is called “Whacko Trump” and “Emperor with no Clothes”.The truth is that if Trump wins, you win, we win and America wins.This will happen if we muster an overwhelming majority.  So the Trump campaign has to dead-agent this Progressive slander.Maybe connect Trump with other great thinkers who were thought “just a little bit crazy”. Were they labeled crazy because they did not sell-out their truth? If you can equate the left slander with the earth is flat; or no need to wash your hands, and Trump with Joan of Arc, Socrates, Galileao we can get this into perspective.
  2. On the subject of morality the Clinton base (like her) is largely immoral; living  on the gravy train is immoral and that is what Trump will end; why he is attacked. Too many people on the gravy train already, shouldn’t be able to vote.Without cutting Clinton slack, you may have to find an extra button if you want to sliver off some of her followers, enough for us to get a big win.You may want to look at the demographic of lower class ethnics (legal & illegal) on their way up, seeking to learn & grow.  I am a teacher and I have taught the disadvantaged. Handle their language, and how they learn, and they climb out of poverty. Contrary to accusations, Trumpsters support diversity.
  3.  I think Trump has made the “crooked Hillary” tag already stick yet, and does it not surprise you as it does me, that with all the dirty secrets that are seeing the light of day, that her numbers hold firm.  It could just be that be her followers don’t care she crooked.  They are crooked also. Or it could just be a false narrative.
  4. Trump dominates at rallies, and on social media. So to make sense out of the contrary data,  could it be that the polls, like so much else in MSM are also false:Game: False polls justify voter fraud via doctored voting machines.Add into the mix that illegal immigrants have been voting.I have long suspected Obama won by corruptly embracing the Illegal Latino Vote.

Here are a  few suggestions:

Progressive thinking is “Power” driven. So any indication of Clinton’s weakness is productive of results, like “her health issue”. Here they are preparing for her in the the White House (sic) Hillary's health Showing her to be the paid puppet of corrupt elites, makes her less like the kind of President we want for Free America.

The high importance Democrats place on Education is an opportunity. Of course they want FREE education from cradle to end of college. But in the ethnic class there is a thirst for education, something good, so it is not just a ploy for a free benefit. They see education as a way to elevate their children to a higher economic class.   Show them how Republicans can help them.  Explain how Progressive Education is Propaganda, but Republicans truly plan to help their kids to think, learn to do things and  get a better job. Teach and help them to start and successfully run a small business (get rid of regulations). Prove that with Republicans they can improve their lot. Satisfy their thirst for betterment and you have got them.

(After all this is a shortcut to supporting Social Security in an aging America.  We have fewer people entering the workforce than leaving it. We have an aging population)

Trump’s Weaknesses
He does not have a solution (other than deportation for the 11m illegal immigrants   already in America. He did not create the situation, it was created by prior presidents and legislators BUT IT WILL BE  HIS TO HANDLE, JUST AS SOON AS HE GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

Building a wall is a strength, restoring rule of law and respect for rule of law is a       great strength  That said, the CHILDREN OF ILLEGALS is going to come up as a subject in the debates AND WILL BE HIS WEAKNESS. This is because Americans like children and want them to succeed.

The courts have been misapplying the “Born in America”  granting citizenship improperly to Latino children for decades but that doesn’t change the situation we have right now. Have to solve it for  if the parents get deported, and the kids stay behind in foster homes, we have a break down of the family, leading  to problems in our schools and on a broader scale, much social unrest coming in at a time when our corrupt banking structure is failing.

Latino children in schools, this is a growing number and costs us much. Studies show such children under-perform. That said the two possible reasons for this can be fixed; put them somewhere where they can learn English and where they feel safe. Help only those families who are willing to learn.  Adults also. We need to qualify them and select only those worth the investment. It is about attitude and willingness. Language is also a factor

latino kidsWhat is vital and important is that we educate these children to  contribute to the social contract.  We also teach them to love the constitution and America. 

So  I suggest Trump embrace immigrant education, Other education is better transferred down to the states.

Trump does not have to solve it NOW but he has to show he is aware of the problem and express compassion and say that HE IS LOOKING INTO A GOOD SOLUTION.  If pressed for specifics he can talk loosely about Border Industries.

Jeff Sessions is correct Democrats don’t see these people as people. They see        them as “Useful Idiots”  (Saul Alinsky)  If Trump comes up with a compassionate     and fair solution, he wins BIG TIME. Truly it is a way to win. The Pope will even start to smile.

If Hillary wins and appoints liberal judges:
No more Republic, no more America and Islamic Domination and a socialist world in
poverty

NOTE: While not yet fact checked it is being suggested in social media that Democrats are already recruiting Illegals to man their local State offices. We have no idea of how many illegals voted in 2012? Do we even have a legal president, probably not?  I USED TO THINK THAT THESE STATE OFFICES WERE VITAL AND IMPORTANT BUT NOW NOT SURE seems a big waste of time & money and I think Trump can win without them. But he only wins if he makes sure illegals cannot vote. He should also check that all vote counting computers, ALWAYS ISSUE A RECEIPT to deter programming voter fraud.

Have a team inspect voting machines NOW.

Use @ Bikers4Trump on exit polls. Start fundraising for them NOW.

There you have it.

I hope this was helpful.

Understanding the Trump Phenomenon

The election is won fair & square but the ‘slaughtered” LEFT can’t see it yet 

In the face of an illegal Syrian war, drugs & crime coming into our country, American communism ripping our culture apart, Radical Islam and a federal government grown far too big, we need a strong and a good president.

America’s crisis in 2016 was & is a moral one. America (and the world) is looking to find its moral compass.

election-2016

America’s Third Crisis
Since its founding, America has faced three crises, the first was when we won our independence from the tyranny of a British King who was denying representative government.

The second, the Civil War was designed to divide North from South and challenged slavery. It was also this war that should have put an end to racism and may have until inverse racism began to be exploited politically.

The founding fathers envisioned a limited Federal Government with explicit and restricted responsibilities. The role of government was to protect the security of the nation and to keep the domestic peace and safety. With a rot in Federal education, most citizens no longer understand the meaning of “Conservative” or “Republic” or “Progressive” or “Liberal” or “Socialist”. There is also a big confusion between “human rights” and “natural rights”. Natural rights are God-given, the right of every citizen to equal opportunity under law and the protection of person and property.

Note well: a citizen’s standard of living is not protected under the American constitution. Each citizen is expected to go out and learn a trade and go to work for self, family and the country.

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 influences.  Against a backdrop of the traditional conflict between Republican and Progressive ideas we have new challenges to the American Liberty & Prosperity. 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.

We see this in:

  • The Iran Deal (Kerry’s son in law is an Iranian doctor)
  • Why “Muslim Brother” Keith Ellingson is the “chosen” new leader of the Democratic Party.
  • Why Obama & Kerry failed to protect our ally Israel from censor by the Security Council at the U.N.

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

Historically the Arab nations have demonstrated poverty, inequality oppression and a lack of individual freedom and were no threat to America. THEN CAME OIL. THEN CAME 9/11. Then came a troubling flow of money into our educational institutions. Now on the international stage we have a resurgent Islam, dominated by ISIS and the sophisticated Muslim Brotherhood a movement that has grown since the “Arab Spring”.

The Trump camp (by observation) is clean and sees this danger clearly but (again by observation) it seems Brotherhood tentacles have penetrated the Democrats who refuse the connection between Muslim & Islam.  Obama refuses to use the words “Radical Islam.”

The degree of turmoil in America at this time is a clear indication that there have been efforts to subvert us.

Also a danger to America is INTERNATIONAL MARXISM. Obama was featured on the cover of the official magazine for International Socialism.
In the planned subversive actions of the SOROS Foundations, we see enemy action. MoveON Soros/paid agitators at Trump rallies are not trying to build up America. These are criminal, enemy actions.  We are witnessing efforts to overwhelm us with Middle Eastern refugees (their aggression fostered in the family and encouraged in the mosque). We see it In the conflicts, the violence and chaos that we are witnessing in our social order, and in the structures and cultures of the western nations of Europe.

Is the final goal to subvert, dominate and then exploit America?  Are there those intent on destroying our religions, our institutions, our constitution, and our families? Sadly Socialism, Marxism, & Communism are all highly attractive to the immoral and out of touch oligarchies who run the world.

Let’s put this all into perspective:
Technology opened the door to global trade. This lifted government up and out of the traditional American system of checks and balances. America still has the remnants of a good constitutional system, but it has been sorely compromised.

Technology gave rise to unchecked international banking monopolies, which is what is fueling the rising income inequality. corporate greedGlobal Elites and GOP Party Elites (in the game for power) were forced back into a corner by the Trump movement. Why is this? Trump is surely no angel, but he is rich in his own right. What the Elites hate most about him is that he cannot be bought. In 2016 America was put off by all the rotten “bribe” money pouring into the Clinton coffers. Many of these donors make their money gaming a rigged system.

As Trump begins to govern, he has a great freedom. Until the Swamp is drained the corrupt will fight him all the way.

Main-stream Media owned by Oligarchies?
Somewhere along the line the Press got owned by the corrupt international oligarchies who began to dictate the narrative. Some Americans, getting their political data only from TV, have not yet realized the bias. Trump was forced to bypass the crooked media to get his message out to the American public. Sadly although elected, he is still doing this, for over the last eight years, Americans have not been educated on “Constitutional and/or Electoral Basics”.Add to this are the pernicious political lies from corrupt political candidates and consultants.   Call it liberal or progressive, or Crony Capitalism, Corrupt Banks, or GOP Establishment, the truth is it boils down to “authoritarian coercive might is right” vs “consent of the governed”. Trump stands for the latter, loud & clear.

Many not buying into the “Fake News” narrative.  Google and FaceBook have already evolved too far for coercive or restrictive censorship to win. There is a lot of love for Trump out there.

free ride

Illegal Immigrants
The eleven million illegals  already living in America are not a problem of Trump’s making, but he has shown willingness to get the problem fixed within the rule of law.

He is not against Latinos, any more than he is against women, against gays, against blacks or AGAINST anybody.  What he is saying is often taken out of context.

Relevant to the immigrant problem is immigrant welfare. Trump has a good fiscal compass. He knows a country as deeply in debt as we, cannot survive. Can we afford to carry this burden.

Trump stands for rule of law, for the constitution and for military strength and for PEACE. Proof of this is the fine spiritual people he has chosen on his team. There is no way the sincerely religious Mike Pence or Dr. Ben Carson would let him walk us into more, corrupt imperial wars.

We need a president who, like our founder George Washington, was aggressive in the degree to fight for what is right, but who has the moral restraint to create a true and lasting legacy.

Trump’s favorite past-president is Jackson.  Like Jackson Trump has the moral compass, the social relationships & strength to stand up to the global rich. Will he succeed? Only time will tell. He does give us a chance and  nobody else has done that in a long, long time. It seems the world is at a tipping point.

Why we cannot Trust Hillary with our Foreign Policy


Hillary Rejects ‘
America First’

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Clinton to Paint Trump as a Risk to World Order.”

The Global Elite
Thus did page one of Thursday’s New York Times tee up Hillary Clinton’s big San Diego speech on foreign policy.

Inside the Times, the headline was edited to underline the point:

“Clinton to Portray Trump as Risk to the World.”

The Times promoted the speech as “scorching,” a “sweeping and fearsome portrayal of Mr. Trump, one that the Clinton campaign will deliver like a drumbeat to voters in the coming months.”

What is happening here?

As Donald Trump is splitting off blue-collar Democrats on issues like America’s broken borders and Bill Clinton’s trade debacles like NAFTA, Hillary Clinton is trying to peel off independents and Republicans by painting Trump as “temperamentally unfit” to be commander in chief.

Clinton contends that a Trump presidency would be a national embarrassment, that his ideas are outside the bipartisan mainstream of U.S. foreign policy, and that he is as contemptuous of our democratic allies as he is solicitous of our antidemocratic adversaries.

In portraying Trump as an intolerable alternative, Clinton will find echoes in the GOP establishment and among the Kristol-Kagan neocons, many of whom have already signed an open letter rejecting Trump.

William Kristol has recruited one David French to run on a National Review-Weekly Standard line to siphon off just enough votes from the GOP nominee to tip a couple of swing states to Clinton.

Robert Kagan contributed an op-ed to a welcoming Washington Post saying the Trump campaign is “how fascism comes to America.”

Yet, if Clinton means to engage on foreign policy, this is not a battle Trump should avoid. For the lady has an abysmal record on foreign policy and a report card replete with failures.

PathillaryAs senator, Clinton voted to authorize President Bush to attack and invade a nation, Iraq, that had not attacked us and did not want war with us.

Clinton calls it her biggest mistake, another way of saying that the most important vote she ever cast proved disastrous for her country, costing 4,500 U.S. dead and a trillion dollars.

That invasion was the worst blunder in U.S. history and a contributing factor to the deepening disaster of the Middle East, from which, it appears, we will not soon be able to extricate ourselves.

As secretary of state, Clinton supported the unprovoked U.S.-NATO attack on Libya and joked of the lynching of Moammar Gadhafi, “We came. We saw. He died.”

Yet, even Barack Obama now agrees the Libyan war was started without advance planning for what would happen when Gadhafi fell. And that lack of planning, that failure in which Clinton was directly involved, Obama now calls the worst mistake of his presidency.

Is Clinton’s role in pushing for two wars, both of which resulted in disasters for her country and the entire Middle East, something to commend her for the presidency of the United States?

Is the slogan to be, “Let Hillary clean up the mess she helped to make?”

Whether or not Clinton was complicit in the debacle in Benghazi, can anyone defend her deceiving the families of the fallen by talking about finding the evildoer who supposedly made the videotape that caused it all?

Even then, she knew better.

How many other secretaries of state have been condemned by their own inspector general for violating the rules for handling state secrets, for deceiving investigators, and for engaging, along with that cabal she brought into her secretary’s office, in a systematic stonewall to keep the department from learning the truth?

Where in all of this is there the slightest qualification, other than a honed instinct for political survival, for Clinton to lead America out of the morass into which she, and the failed foreign policy elite nesting around her, plunged the United States?

If Trump will stay true to his message, he can win the foreign policy debate, and the election, because what he is arguing for is what Americans want.

They do not want any more Middle East wars. They do not want to fight Russians in the Baltic or Ukraine, or the Chinese over some rocks in the South China Sea.

They understand that, as Truman had to deal with Stalin, and Ike with Khrushchev, and Nixon with Brezhnev, and Reagan with Gorbachev, a U.S. president should sit down with a Vladimir Putin to avoid a clash neither country wants, and from which neither country would benefit.

The coming Clinton-neocon nuptials have long been predicted in this space. They have so much in common. They belong with each other.

But this country will not survive as the last superpower if we do not shed this self-anointed role as the “indispensable nation” that makes and enforces the rules for the “rules-based world order,” and that acts as first responder in every major firefight on earth.

What Trump has hit upon, what the country wants, is a foreign policy designed to protect the vital interests of the United States, and a president who will — ever and always — put America first.

 

 

Note from Grandma Thunder

Two things to think about regarding American Foreign Policy

The world is a mess, economically and politically. Persons of goodwill and those who can see, know that the next president inherits a foreign policy disaster.

In 2016 with Donald Trump with America First, we finally have a chance to fix it up

“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.” Gutle Schnaper. –Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife.

Hillary has a cozy, close relationship with the Rothchilds, a family that has profited from war over the last century.

Kissinger & the constitutionMore than any other person, the un-American, evil  Henry Kissinger has defined American foreign policy over the last half century.

“The Illegal we do immediately – the un-constitutional takes a little longer” said Kissinger.

 Hillary has a cozy, close relationship with Henry Kissinger.

Of the two candidates based on their record and their connections and their emotional tone, it seems more likely that Hillary would lead us into war than Donald Trump. 

We keep our fingers crossed and keep them both in our prayers.

Will the Debates influence the Election Outcome?

It seems to us that Main Stream Media has forgotten we have a country in trouble and this is the time for all men of good will to work together to turn it around and fix it up. 

Genuine emotion, is it a factor in an election?

Although not reported thus by MSM, Hillary lost the first debate because she was supercilious, smug and took her campaign down into the gutter.  Small minded Lester Holt must also be held accountable for wasting our time on trivia; beauty queens and the silly birther issue long ago settled. I am speaking on behalf of independents and new voters.

Our Future

    Our Future

Breaking news: Hillary Clinton is taking no responsibility for the plight of millennials.

I quote from Breitbart News: “Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement,” Clinton adds. “They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.”

She continues, “If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.”

Of course what is omitted is Bill’s complicity in the Crash of 2008, and her own support of the Iraq war. These are the two events that stole away the opportunity and future from the New Millennials.

Examine these mind blowing facts

Ben Carson, Donald Trump and on the other side of the aisle, Bernie Sanders are for the people, and intend to create a more equitable society for all.

 About Bad Lobbying:

corporate greed

About Bad Banking

Ex President Jimmy Carter called America an oligarchy with unlimited bribery. Definition of oligarchy: a government in which a small group of elites, exercises control for corrupt and selfish purposes.  (Merriam Webster)

The international socialist cabal operating behind the scenes in the White House, and the corrupt crony capitalists working on K Street, and the Banking Oligarchies working with the FED, are NOW running scared because it seems they fear they cannot bribe Trump and Carson or Sanders or bring them to heel.

third partyFor a decade or more they have persuaded conservatives to NOT increase taxes on the banking class; never tax the rich. That is true, but only if you are talking about the productive rich. There is a significant difference between facilitating production (making things) and the casino-like profits made by banksters and investors. There has been much concern about the dwindling middle class. This inequity won’t be handled until the economic “rules of the game” no longer unfairly benefit bankers and investors.

What would happen to the Global Elites if Bernie were able to redistribute the wealth of the one percent? What would happen to them if Trump were able to stop up these corrupt laws that protect their rigged privilege?

Bernie favors taxing the rich to provide for free education, and free healthcare for all. This little man is gutsy, honest and he cares for the American voter – just one glitch in his plan. Thanks to the Digital Revolution the rich now take and hide their wealth in little hidden pockets all over the globe; in places far outside the jurisdiction of the IRS. Trump calls on the “investor class” to account for their unfair share of the assets in the economy. Trump understands they do not exchange value for value and he has promised to undo their false privilege. He will reform Wall Street.

There is a real simple FIX to both the housing stress and the Student loan crisis:
CONGRESS MUST CANCEL BANKING COMPOUND INTEREST and we need a president who would sign this reform legislation.  No chance for that to happen if Clinton is president – she favors the elite (banksters) over we the people.  But with Trump who like Bernie is not beholden to the banking crowd there is hope. Bernie tried, he tried hard but he failed. We have to wonder what they have on him.

What is the difference between these two candidates?

  • Bernie feels for the Latinos Trump concerned about taxes and the  economy, while wants to send back home illegal Latinos.
  • Bernie wants to tax the rich and fund good things like education. Nice but what is the point if no jobs after graduation?
  • Trump wants to reform Wall Street and BRING BACK JOB OPPORTUNITY.
    Trump is more focused on an economic recovery

How interesting it would have been to have debate BETWEEN TWO HONEST CANDIDATES EACH WITH TRUE FOLLOWING (Bernie said would need an enormous arena – right)  Both Trump and Bernie stand for something and both have a true following.  Both have a true moral compass and both genuinely want to fix Wall Street. Both care about America and Americans and the future. Both are focused on education. On the other side of the aisle we have the globalists

Do you wonder why globalists are so desperate to have crooked Hillary elected? Do you see why it would be such a bad idea?

Over the last half century the corrupt corporate and banking spoils have been enormous, especially in 2008 when the banks, and the auto industry were bailed out. The FED even used American taxpayer money to bail out foreign banks.  And what has been the consequence? The big banks are now bigger than ever before. The American taxpayer is at much or more at risk NOW than 2008 after eight years of Obama. Neither Hillary nor phony Obama have a good production record.

Obama's legacy

The attack on Ben Carson (before he dropped out) is interesting. Ben Carson came out and said clearly in one debate that HE WOULD NOT BAIL OUT THE BANKS. Since Ben Carson joined Trump, his influence is now even bigger. Ben Carson is Black and being successful in the GOP, calls the “racist” lie. How can Donald Trump use Ben Carson as one of his main advisers, and he is black? No Trump is not a racist, ample proof to the contrary.

Do you see what we are really talking about here a whole lot of money up for grabs. We are also talking about an elite corporate industry, an international pharmaceutical industry and banking industries with no moral compass. And one more point when talking NWO, Soros’s hand in world affairs may be unknown to some. He is best known for manipulating the overthrow of Slobadan Milosivicin 2000, the “Rose Revolution” of 2003 and the 2006 push of Turkey into Sharia law. He works with paid agitators at political rallies. Go figure?

Bernie’s weakness was his connection to Soros, th violence of Black Lives Matter.  and Moveon.Org funded by Soros rejected by most millennials.

Many Americans do not know about the secretive New World Order but they are waking up. Hillary is a very secretive person. You have to realize that she was carefully chosen by the elites to be president in 2016. According to (Open Secrets Blog) she promised Goldman Sachs, banking as usual. Is this why she won’t release the transcripts of her speeches?

As we move from spring into the summer of 2016, the gloves are finally off. Obama and Bill and Hillary are openly talking New World Order, an order with no constitution or balance of power and not grounded in any kind of moral code. All indications are it will be coercive. At every turn these global elites fight our first and second constitutional amendments. They are using the simple and genuine progressives to do their dirty deeds.

There will be no end to the attack on Trump & even Ben Carson in the media until they crumble and creep back into the mold, and until we all slide back into poverty.

Bernie is gone. They would not even let his signs be displayed at the Democratic Convention. They put up “white sound boxes” to make sure there were no Bernie protesters giving the wrong message. By selecting Tim Kaine Hillary signaled to the Bernie crowd reforming Wall Street is not a part of her agenda. Axelrod is now part of CNN a donor for the Hillary campaign. So much for the objectivity of the press. 

They won’t cease their ugly attacks until the Global elites, the Democratic Elites, and the GOP Elites get back the comfort of banking as usual and politics as usual.

If Hillary wins there will be more income inequality.

If Trump wins there is just a small chance there will be an economic recovery.

Open Letter to Jenny Beth Martin

tea PartyFirst question: When you slide down into “stopping” is it that not when you are on your way out?

Could it be that Ted Cruz with his global ties is destroying the fine conservative movement you all have created? America needs the Tea Party to continue to grow in strength & influence. You are the keeper of our beloved constitution, that which makes us great?

Fact # One Demonstrated in the numbers it is now clear that Donald Trump is the people’s choice.

Donald Trump is neither a perfect person nor a perfect candidate but I do believe he is the right man for this time. His movement is NOT populism like the Bernie Sander’s campaign; it is actually patriotism i.e. Global vs Patriot.
(Read Thomas Friedman – “The Lexus & the Olive Tree” to better understand the global development which has been happening over the last half century. The problem with the global movement is that those who have risen to the top, the global banks and global corporations have done so without the checks and balances given us by our Constitution. Now they badly want to undo it as it restrains them and their corrupt advantage. America and the Constitution stand in their way to full global power

Second Question: Have you honestly educated yourself on Donald Trump – read his books? You may find there is much in Trump’s platform with which you can agree.

Fact # Two Trump is not only supported by the working or uneducated class. It is my observation (on Twitter) that many HIGHLY informed and educated people are committed to supporting his patriot-movement. In short he is supported by people WHO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON and who understand; people of good will. He is supported mainly by those who have decided the corruption in our system has to come to an end. These purposes in no way oppose the goals of the Tea Party.

Fact # Three:  Imagine just how bad an Obama third term would be. That is what Hillary is offering us; Bill’s third term and Obama’s third term and neither is good... By continuing this feud that seeks to make pure conservatives right while making Trumpsters wrong, is landing the Tea Party on the wrong side of the real fight.  Believe me by continuing the GOP primary past the time when Cruz has any chance of becoming the people’s choice; the Tea Party is playing into the hands of such as SOROS/Obama/Hillary. You have to face the only reason Cruz & Kasich are financially able to continue this unworthy in-fighting is their funding by corrupt donors.

Fact # Four: The real enemy is SOROS /OBAMA /HILLARY and there are many lies and false polls put out to falsely say that Cruz and/or Kasich would be better than Trump to beat Hillary. Don’t buy the political lies. LOL neither has earned even a majority OF REPUBLICAN VOTERS so how could they prevail in a general election. Of course Trump stands the best chance against Hillary; despite gobs of mega money in attack ads from mega donor’s scared shitless losing an unfair advantage. Trump has the numbers and with Tea Party help he can easily beat Hillary. Without Tea Party help he can still do it, but it will be harder. Note well he can be trusted, HE IS SELF FUNDING; beholden financially to no corrupt donors.  We stand the best chance of all when we come together with truth and integrity on our side…

LOL Globalist Hillary says America is great already and from the SOROS/OBAMA/Hillary point of view that is perfectly true. They want us bankrupt, they want us impoverished, they like to see us as a third world country they can manipulate into a corrupt world order and they want to roll us over into a global order where we have no borders with Mexico or Canada, and where there is no balance of power and where corrupt power runs unchecked.

Note well: The danger is much bigger than most people see for if Cruz and his rich donor backer’s succeed in stealing the election; (with Tea Party Help) it will be seen as a GROSS injustice by America and this could lead to riots. (Riots (historically) come from injustice)

Fact # Five After the 2012 elections Obama carefully put in place a slew of executive orders giving him paramount power for martial law. Google SOROS and his “Revolution of Color” and see that this unrest may actually be planned. SOROS has been doing this all over Europe to no good advantage. Now all Obama needs is the excuse to implement Martial Law in order to assume dictatorial powers. King Obama has already far exceeded his rightful place as leader of this nation.

Third question: Do you want the Tea Party fooled into being complicit in the destruction of America, our liberties and our heritage? Do you realize how you are being played?

Fact # Six; There is another crisis looming which I do believe only Trump is able or strong enough to guide us through. Under Obama’s watch the big banks have grown even bigger and are now so top heavy they are ready to again topple. Kasich supports bank bailouts. Ben Carson does not. Hopefully Ben will guide Trump policy. We do not know where Trump stands on bailouts but he has promised to clean up banking and to manage effectively in order to avert any financial disaster

Ted Cruz has persuaded you that he has the better economic & tax plan but that is not true. A flat tax has inherent weaknesses. The Trump tax plan is not ideal but as a trained economist I personally believe his plan is right for this time,  for it takes into account the income inequality that has grown over the last half a century, causing bankers and investors to play their game with a weighted dice.  There has been gross negligence by Obama’s two AGs, a blind eye turned to fraudulent banking transgressions. Minimally SOROS should have been investigated and prosecuted for his financial crimes. Trump has promised that banking corruption, donor corruption, Super Pac corruption, and Big Pharma corruption will not go unchallenged in his administration. Do you wonder they say all these bad things about him?

We don’t have to have Socialism a la Bernie Sanders to solve this problem of income inequality. it must be addressed and corrected; for it is bad for the stability of our culture.

All other 2016 candidates Democratic and Republican except Bernie Sanders, are beholden to rich & corrupt political manipulators.

Note well: The seeds for the 2008 banking crash were laid in at the end of Bill Clinton’s watch, and the same corrupt people and policies are being embraced by Hillary. By accepting Phil Gramm to his financial team along with several Bushites, Ted Cruz has stepped into the same dangerous bucket.

I cannot guarantee Trump will get us through the next turbulent times for we are so very far down the line, with a debt that is all but unsustainable. I will say this though, he gives us a chance. That chance gets way better when the Tea Party climbs aboard the Trump Train.

Fourth question: Do you think we have any chance of beating the evil of SOROS/OBAMA/HILLARY if we don’t stand together? They are happy with our level of debt. Hillary says America is already great. Give me a break?

We all see that we still and always will need the Constitution.

corporate greed

Right now though I do believe we need Donald Trump. There may well be room for a more conservative President up the line, maybe somebody like Rand Paul but with the corrupt hold by evil doers on our government process, and our country’s money, we have to handle the corruption first.  I, personally, am so grateful to Donald Trump for standing up to be counted. If not him, who?

Final Question: And who will be the keeper of the constitution if not the Tea Party? If not you, who? 

 At this time and place your best chance to keep it safe is by climbing aboard the Trump Train which in no way changes your true identity or responsibility.

Only together do we have a good chance of winning back America and restoring the constitution that which is precious to us and that which right now is under siege.

Help that good man Reince Priebus bring the GOP party back together.

It is time to rally around the people’s choice.

Political Lies – How they Serve the Corrupt

(June/July  2017)

I feel sorry for the poor CNN journalists, caught as they are between a rock and a hard place. After all they are only following global orders.

Their long-term survival lies in following the truth.

Here is the elite agenda.

How we are controlled

The elites have for some time perfected the art of winning elections. It is done by spin, negative attack ads , voter fraud, but most of all by DIVIDE AND RULE.

About Big, Bad Banking
Ex President Jimmy Carter called America an oligarchy with unlimited bribery. Definition of oligarchy: a government in which a small group of elites, exercises control for corrupt and selfish purposes.  (Merriam Webster)

The international socialist cabal operating behind the scenes, the corrupt crony capitalists working through K Street, and the ever growing bigger Banking Oligarchies working with and through the FED, are scared because (so far) they have been unable to pull the strings on Donald Trump. Much of the noise and lots of of the trouble in politics is coming from the BIG multi billion donors or secretive PACs and political consultants paid megabucks by the mega-rich who no longer have their finger on the pulse.

In a digital age even Hollywood is at risk, for  they have relied on the force of government to protect an unfair privilege. To get our entertainment we can now make our own movies, write and publish our own books and songs. Trump is hated by the “bought” media who once upon a time controlled the narrative, no longer.  Realize just how much money is at stake, once upon a time the press could tell BIG BUSINESS that they dominated your thinking. They cannot do that any more and they are lashing out at Trump, for who else should they blame? Never themselves.

Donald Trump breaks up the relationship between BIG money, BIG business and BIG government. We love him for this but he is hated by the elites because they cannot control or buy him. 

Jacob Rothchild  even came out of the closet to say, “Donald Trump endangers the New World Order”  and yes he does, not because he is bad or mean, it is because it is the globalists who have the most to lose from “America First”. I think the elites have enjoyed an unfair advantage throughout the industrial age and that is long enough. Unfortunately they now tend to think that this is the natural order. For decades they have been able to buy political candidates and politicians. The election in Georgia has shown America and the world that, that time is over.

I think people should think freely, that people should be able to choose freely, how about you?

About Bad TV.
The press is very adept at putting a spin on things.  Political consultants aim to “smear” the opponent and sadly the press (who should be guardians of the truth) are letting them get away with it  Elections have been won or lost by just how well the opponent is being mis-defined. The art of the attack ad was created by GOP Karl Rove in daddy-bush days, but perfected in 2008 & 2012 by the Democrats

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to destroy another’s reputation.  Dr Ben has faulty memory, Trump is anti-women, Trump is too-much-for women, Trump is racialist,  Trump is Hitler, Trump is anti-Muslim, Trump is anti-Latino. Spot the lies by the generalities.

Russo-phobia

trump-russia

Informed Americans know that 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. Putin is funny about Russo-phobia. He raises an eyebrow and says, “Do you really think I, Putin, am able to influence your American elections? Are you not a Super Power? ” He makes a good point. It was the Obama administration’s job to secure the integrity of the voting. Clinton supporters should be mad at Obama, not Putin.  The voter fraud of 2012 & 2016 has now been proven by Judicial Watch and it had much to do with illegals voting, not much to do with Russia which is proving out to be a nothing-burger.

Russo-phobia is filled with generalities and like all generalities the clever voter spots that they are partly or largely FALSE. Truth is very specific.

Sadly there has been bad blood between America and Russia for a long, long time and Putin has to be dealt with 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 war games and the global banking scam-game is OVER.

Shadow Government
Is the unrest after the 2016 election  orchestrated? Of the corrupt, global, political donors, the very worst is the fascist George Soros.

Climate Change
Trump has great bullshit antenna. He called out the international community who were set to rob us blind, with the Paris Climate agreement.

Do you want to pay a city tax, a county tax a sales tax, a value added tax, a State Tax , a Federal Tax AND A GLOBAL CARBON TAX?

The sad part about this climate agreement is that the money would have been going to corrupt bureaucrats and not even reach the good people who can fix the bad use of land and the rape of trees or to honestly police carbon emissions.  Real climate help comes from bypassing the corrupt governments of third world countries and dealing with those who honestly want to fix the problem. A perfect example is PermaCulture. 

Climate is in God’s hands and it has been changing for millennia.

Justice has been blind for the last eight years. We should demand that congress polices those who knowingly and deliberately create upset and dissent between us.

This revolution is not about the Elephants vs the Donkeys it is about “We the People”, honest grassroots movements, vs the Establishment

In Conclusion:
America is the land of the free. England is where rule of law has its roots. Support our dual heritage. 

Be savvy, double check your facts, be suspicious of a press that stirs up controversy, look for the ugly generalities, understand the corrupt economics of the situation.

Follow the money. You can find the figures at opensecrets.org  In this crazy time every American owes it to himself to do due diligence and to conduct his own research.

Also restudy, as I am now doing – our Constitution to give yourself an anchor and to get in your own political basics.

NOTE: The press is reporting on the people who have the courage to stand up to lead us. How badly in these troubled times do we need good people to lead us but how very badly the freaking Press, wants to tear them down.

I don’t think Donald Trump is going to crumble.

Quote for the Day

“On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced.

We are going to be considerate and compassionate to everyone. But my greatest compassion will be for our own struggling citizens.”
