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.

shadow-gvt

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. 

3-branches-of-govt

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.”

The War on Women

Definition of oligarchy: a government in which a small group of elites, exercises control for corrupt and selfish purposes.  (Merriam Webster)

Hillary is cleverly jumping the draw and attacking Trump about his relationships with women.

Now stand back a minute and ask yourself, can you honestly see Trump abusing women, he too rich, and when younger, too attractive and powerful  His problem was surely how to keep the women coming on to him? Amazing achievement with all that going for him sexually, he only had three wives and has such a wonderful and loving family. This Clinton attack is truly WRONG TARGET.

LOL why do people always accuse others of their own bad deeds. We all know Bill the real sexual predator. He nearly impeached for this. His sexual misdemeanors are on public record.

About Bad Journalism
The political class have gotten so used to a climate of attack that they are now see “Journalism as Usual” and “Politics as Usual” as perfectly justifiable, as perfectly okay.

How we are controlled

As we move forward to the General Election, we are going to hit this last dirty line over and over from the Liberal Left on how the “masters” seek to divide us. Look at that last line on the pyramid and know it is all a dirty game. Shame on the NY Times. The sex attack is the trending black propaganda for 2016. Megyn Kelly anticipated this and she was right. She shouldn’t have laid into trump though. Because Bill guilty and has to be defended, Trump’s sexuality is the one coming under heavy scrutiny. WRONG TARGET.

Keep on looking at that last line ON THAT PYRAMID ABOVE for that is how they plan to divide us. Gay rights have been won but there is still a backwash.. Obama made this clear when he launched his bathroom brawl. Give me a break the country on the verge of financial collapse and drowning in corruption,  and we are in dispute about men with penises allowed into girls bathrooms. It’s wag the dog.

Shame on you Obama. Shame on any politician or journalist who picks up on this. Ignore and treat with a yawn.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to destroy another’s reputation. 

About Nationalism and Internationalism
Take three feet back and look at the Clinton attack on Trump with fresh eyes. We need to look beyond the tabloid rhetoric and realize that the Global elites are getting desperate.  (Always look for the third party in any conflict) Why would the global elite be against Trump don’t the rich favor teh GOP? – well its a LOT OF MONEY AT STAKE. Trump is a Nationalist, AND A REFORMER and Murdock, Obama and Bill Clinton (Rhodes Scholar) are all of them Internationalists with crimes against America. All are strongly connected to the top of the pyramid, with international oligarchical allegiances AND NO GREAT LOYALTY TO “WE THE PEOPLE”

About the War on Women
Does Hillary even want to become President? She looks happiest and genuine when she plays with her grandchild. She is running on this War on Women platform (master minded by her husband, the prime mover in her campaign) Sticking with Bill was not a good idea. We have now had the class wars, then the race wars and now we descend in 2016 to the sex wars.  Are you surprised AS IT IS BILL CLINTON RUNNING HER CAMPAIGN AND HE IS GUILTY.

Anybody with an ounce of integrity and/or intelligence will hold themselves above this fracas and denounce THESE UGLY TACTICS. .Boredom would be the best response. from the GOP leaders.

This is why it is a great idea to have a support group from which to distance oneself,run by someone other than Trump and Roger Stone is the perfect fall guy, he has done his research and can mount the attack which Trump and the GOP elite in their better interests.ignore. But if that tactic which I suspect will succeed is taken, Trump and the GOP elite must distance themselves from Stone. Maybe give the job to Karl Rove, he supreme at these dirty tactics. Not sure he can be trusted. He seems to lack a moral compass.

Although Obama is not a Muslim he was raised in a Muslim community. The Islamic Jihadists are sworn to destroy America, and he seems okay with this.  I suspect he has also being used by International Socialism, which is organized to infiltrate the free countries of the world. Before Obama they gained no traction in America, but now our president has been featured on the front cover of their magazine.

The oligarchies want that we the “half-wit” people (boy do they have a disconnect) get upset about gay rights, about religion about police brutality and now about all those nasty things men do to women or men do to men. Can you give me one good reason why the Federal Government should be involved in this? Give me one good reason why we should give this any attention in 2016?  Treat with boredom. Ignore. Tell Ted Cruz not to engage for that is what they want.

No Hillary, Obama, Bill, SOROS “we the people” are no longer stupid,  in 2016 we are waking up. Donald Trump gives us hope because he cannot be bought. Those who wish to continue to steal from us and dominate us, do not see that many more voters are now computer savvy and can fact check false press statements. After doing our research we are also able now to share our knowledge and conclusions on Social Media. We are voting for the Donald. We know he is sometimes crass but in spite of this we still love him.  We are voting for him because he tells the truth and because he is our best chance of ENDING the CORRUPTION.

your chance to make America Great again

WE CHOOSE NOT TO VOTE FOR SOROS, OBAMA & HILLARY BECAUSE WE KNOW THEY ARE PART OF THE CORRUPTION. 

We need to call Hillary & Bill on their war on women, because truly it belongs to them and not the GOP. This is black propaganda and the statements from the NYTs are not standing up to to fact checking.


More research is needed on the connections of both Bill & Hillary to big, bad banking and to the global elite who stand to lose their dirty privilege in 2016 and a great deal of money with a Trump Presidency. This is what they are hiding behind thier war on women. The elite connections are ugly and the global elites are running scared.  I have thoroughly researched Trump on his international connections and he is clean.

Obama stands to have his betrayal after trust to the American people finally fully disclosed and I hope he loses his legacy. He has not been good for a constitutional America.

It is a whole new world and in 2016 we have the chance to take back our country. Let’s make America Great Again!

Much Ado about Donald Trump (updated after the election)

 

A few of us knew that Trump was going to be the next President; and how did we know this? We read his books and studied his record and realized that when Trump decides something, that is the way it is going to be. This strength of mind and self-confidence (and his knowledge of how finance works) should stand us in good stead in the troubled times that still lie ahead.

Donald TrumpGiven that he won the election fair and square why is there still opposition?

It is going to take time for the lies and slander to fade away.  The swamp has not yet been drained. It will take at least four years  maybe eight and maybe even thirty which is what I predict the GOP has ahead. I predict this because of the greater efficiency of their political organization.

So given the Democrats in disarray, what is this wild noise we are still hearing?
There are a lot of people were supporting corrupt HIllary, freaking, because they stand to lose an unfair privilege.

Just to name a few:

  • Sanctuary Cities
  • Illegal immigrants and Refugees living off the public dole when some of our children are starving and our veterans are struggling.
  • Those planning and rigging the vote counting machines to falsify election results. (So sick) I have suspicions about Harry Reid.
  • Those gaming the legislative process (Harry Reid, Mich McConnell, Bill Clinton)
  • Teachers protected by seniority and not judged on their performance.
  • Government workers insisting on high wages and demanding high benefits but failing the public they serve.
  • Those in high office like Clinton betraying her public trust, taking bribes (bribes laundered through the Clinton Foundation)
  • Those in high office like Clinton choosing to set up her records on a public server (SO THAT HER EMAILS COULD NEVER BE SOUGHT BY JUDICIAL WATCH ON A FREEDOM OF iNFORMATION REQUEST) Thanks to Wikileaks we found out what she and those in high office in the Democrats wanted to hide.
  • Lots of little bureacrats who were also raking it in on the side. We have far too many bureaucrats.
  • Main Stream Media owned by Global Interests engaging in bias and slander and failing to tell the truth.
  • Big pharma making a killing from Government patents and regulations that protect their unfair monopoly – why can’t we buy our drugs in Canada or Mexico? Why can’t HMOs compete across state lines. Where is all this cushy protection.
  • Farmers getting subsidies long out of date
  • Investors like George Soros using arcane investing rules to allow them to profit from an economic decline (Then they use thier wealth and power to create such decline)
  • People on welfare now have to learn a trade and begin to support self and family and the nation.
  • Abortion clinics relying on public funding.
  • Monsanto (GMO) permitted by Clinton to hide what they are doing to poison our food.
  • Bribed politicians and on and on.

No wonder there are a lot of unhappy people.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

  • He has observed that America is in trouble, and he has decided that he is the one to make America Great Again.
  • He has the unique ability to attract honorable and able men to his side. None can challenge the production records of Pence or Ben Carson or their spiritual integrity. That they love him speaks a lot for Donald Trump.
  • Trump’s political views are still evolving and he is not fixed. He evaluates the situation in front of him, he observes, and then he decides before he acts. He is able TO SEE.
  • He is transparent, and tells it like it is. This is likable.
  • He understands TV; and as an entertainer he is supreme
  • He understands finance; and this is something we badly need, it has become beyond vital to fix the failing economy before the next economic bubble pops (derivatives) 
  • In the event of an economic or any major catastrophe, Trump is a strong man. In such a bad event we will need strength in a leader.
  • He promises jobs, knowing that putting us ALL back to work will raise our morale
  • He is sensible: “identify your goals, know precisely what you want to achieve, then find and surround yourself with the best people”  Good advice. Already we have seen this work for him.
  • He is sound on Education (He supports school choice, and opposes Common Core)
  • He is sound on Taxes. He asks simplification of the cumbersome and complex income tax code. His plan to tax the rich is coming under attack, yet what he proposes is an amazingly fair and gradient approach to handle income inequality
  • That he only hits back when attacked, yet hits back hard and effectively.
  • Most of all we are coming to realize that those who oppose him are corrupt. There is a whole thick, entrenched system in Washington which is rigged.  We begin to understand the opposition to Trump better when we realize just how much money the elites (both global, democratic and republican) are standing to lose.Trump will expose their corruption.


corporate greed

Not all who oppose Trump are corrupt, some are wary because . . .

  • His style is somewhat new and he is not in any way politically correct. As a friend put it, “Trump is saying all the right things, I just wish somebody else was saying it.”
  • Would he have the strength and the smarts to take America through a bankruptcy without letting the fabric of our society fall apart, for that is what it may take?
  • Will he introduce change on an acceptable gradient, giving us time to catch up. We see that he is way ahead even than the smartest of our thinkers. Will he be gentle on us?
  • The true test of his greatness will be to bring his prior enemies onto the train, invite them to WAKE UP.
  • Will Trump grant others the ability to  see things their own way, to disagree with him AS LONG AS THEY ARE FAIR?  The true test of greatness will be to LEARN to love his enemies provided they are declawed.

Some of these are valid concerns, electing  an outsider to the post of President is a big change from politics as usual. He has my support because he supports the Republican form of government; in a Republic, government rules only with consent of the governed. In a global or progressive administration “Might is Right” and this opens the door to oppression.

And that folks is what was at stake in 2016. We could have lost America. We could have been forced by the Clintons into the North American Union to become just another corrupt, Banana Republic bowing down the might of the corrupt global elite.

 

 

character

So where do we go from here? We come together as Americans, grateful that once again America has stood up to the challenge.

I  am now studying that incomparable Hillsdale College Course on the Constitution and finding that Trump’s instinctive solutions are mostly aligned with the core beliefs of the founding fathers. They, too, valued common sense.

Don’t feel bad if you got it wrong: the political lies were so many as to be overwhelming. The key difference between the candidates: I do believe that Trump can change. He will grow into his new position. I don’t see that Hillary has changed in thirty years. She has always put power over people.

In times of great change we need a President who is in no way a puppet as has been Hillary & Obama. America needs an outsider who can think on his feet. I do believe such a man is Donald Trump.

So I have a message for those who still oppose Trump:

Do your homework.

  • Get educated on the “out of touch” globalists many of whom do not have your better interests at heart
  • If you do not understand a Constitutional Republic take some time to study the incomparable FREE online course from Hillsdale College.
  • Read one or two of Trump’s books, (you may start start with the Midas Touch)
  • Learn about the Political Lies being told by the Corporate Oligarchies.
  • Learn how Main Stream Media is now a Monopoly and the dubious techniques they use to mislead you Recognize that it is the lies and half truths that has you all upset.  Learn to spot the false labels and the generalities.

It is a big world out there, a big responsibility. We turth-seekers honestly believe that it begins by first fixing up our own house and then we can help other soveriegn nations. “America First” is common sense.

We will see if Power corrupts Trump or not, and we will be vigilant and become active again to curb his power if that is needed.

But for now it is the dawn of a new day.

families at night

We all need to give our new president- elect some time and space. We need to have faith in the American system; the people have spoken.

I have a dream, and this is that Trump will pattern himself after George Washington with the aggression and strength to fight for what is right; but the restraint to earn him a true legacy.

Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.

Can Bill Clinton fix small business for Hillary?

Small business just happens to be the largest employer in America. Wipe out small business and you destroy jobs.

When he was president Bill Clinton understood this; but that was then and now is now. After eight years of Obama, small business has been all but destroyed by regulations, banking corruption and global priorities. 

The seeds for the 2008 crash were actually sown on Bill Clinton’s watch, an inept president who didn’t really understand, and his greedy banking cronies who took advantage. Bernie Sanders pushed to get this fixed with Glass Steagall. However, now that Clinton has chosen Tim Kaine over Elizabeth Warren as her VP, is it likely she will follow through on this very needed banking correction?

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

Wells Fargo: Another major banking scandal: so what’s new?

robtheworld

The economy got turned around after the 2008 crash, but the Wells Fargo scandal shows us that while the danger was handled in 2008 (taxpayer bailouts of both American and Foreign Banks) a Federal Reserve in bed with Obama, saved the system, but they failed to fix the problem.

Hillary is propitiating the corrupt banking Industry. Hillary is the establishment candidate.

2008 halved the value of many homes and if Americans were able to keep their houses it was a small miracle. Many walked away from the biggest investment of their lifetime.  Now, paying sometimes exorbitant rents, to foreign owner capitalists in a global world, our Moms & Pops live from paycheck to paycheck. Their kids, having lost jobs to India, China and Mexico, are being forced to move back in with them.

Note well: It was the crash of 2008 that brought on the income inequality that is now destroying our culture?

A little background on Glass Steagall: bringing this back has has been included in the GOP platform.

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

The Glass Steagall Act of 1933 is a set of good reforms that ushered in a crisis-free period in USA financial history.

Today we see that banking corruptIon still exists. We can hope that Wells Fargo will become the head on a pike and corrupt bankers will be put on notice that they commit crimes, they get locked away. Don’t hold your breath with a Hillary presidency. She will protect the corrupt justice department and the numbers tell us she is in bed with the industry.,

We should learn from our past mistakes.

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

TBTF

Hillary is making noises to placate the Bernie voters, but once in power can we trust her? Her banking connections tell us, otherwise! Follow the money.

Is the danger real that we could have another banking crash?  Don’t take my word on it, look at the graph for yourself and check out the numbers.

************

Then read my story so that you, too, understand.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“What?” said Bobby. 

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

“Duh?” 

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

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

**********

mom&PopWith rumblings that we could again have another banking crash, having the big banks again steal assets from these hardworking little Mom & Pop shop enterprises is not an option. It is totally unacceptable. It is little Mom & Pop enterprises that depend on the banks to keep their meager money safe.

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

It all comes back to a good law deliberately wiped out for banking greed and one inept President who lacked any kind of personal ethics. Do we want his wife to bring back all the same bad laws and advisers? Do we want Hillary to perpetuate banking corruption?

When originally introduced, Glass-Steagall gave banks a year to decide: they could get out of the securities business, and enjoy the benefits of deposit insurance and access to the low-interest credit of the Federal Reserve; or they could choose to be investment banks and brokerage houses, and forego the banking privileges given them by depositors.

It is one or the other, and once again in 2016 it is time for we the people to force the banks to make the choice.

 ***********

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

Oh yeah?

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

*************  

It is true that most regulations are counter productive but there are some like the Glass-Steagall Act that are absolutely vital to our economic prosperity and the stability of our culture. America survived the Great Depression because there was effective ethics investigation, effective reorganization of the banking sector and new, strong policy put in place to make sure t didn’t happen again.

An open letter to Donald Trump from Grandma Thunder

Who is against you Donald, and do you know why they oppose you?

Let me begin by thanking you. I am grateful that you chose to step up to the plate.

About how dirty this game is. . .

Where you find yourself is in the middle of a dirty game; and it is a game where you may have profited in the past because you are shrewd, but it is not a game of your making.  Now you are being given the chance to fix it up.

your chance to make America Great again

Just how dirty this game is now, you are just starting to find out.  When the bad things people do to get unfair advantage, get missed, they get highly upset and go on the attack.

You jumped into the fray, only to find everything imploding..  It must have seemed like going through the sound barrier, where you wake up one morning and everything is reversed; your friends are now your enemies, the Americans you came to help and save are the ones attacking you.  You seek out safe places, TV has always been good to you, only to find TV fraught with danger. Fox liked you and now Fox hates you. Even your Twitter Account, your biggest asset, has been hacked and not what it was before   . .

This blog post has been written to explain why some of this is happening.

About Bad Journalism
Even although FOX is still defending their princess she was out of line in that first debate; The political class have gotten so used to a climate of attack that they are now see “Journalism as Usual” and “Politics as Usual” as perfectly justifiable, as perfectly okay.

2016 is the year when these dirty tricks stop working.

They tell me it wasn’t proper but I loved your rejoinder to Megyn.  You don’t ever let anybody get away with an unfair attack do you?

The people don’t like these political  attack ads. It is a couple of decades since Karl Rove invented and perfected the negative political attack ad. With all the money donated to the favorites we are expecting lots of these and I cringe in anticipation. Knowingly or unknowingly Megyn was using these ugly “Karl Rove” techniques which consist of lies, generality, innuendo and insinuation: “The war on women” “the temperament of a president” and in saying these things I don’t think she even knew she was forwarding “enemy line”  You are lucky she didn’t go so far as to call you “racist”. (New definition of racist: anybody who opposes the International, Liberal Agenda) Even if I know you are not anti-black, hang in there for I predict you are going to be called racist. The “Race Attack” is old hat.

It is an attack that has not only been used by liberals; Rove’s most damaging (and successful use of these black propaganda techniques was to “suggest” that John McCain had fathered a black love child, totally untrue. Actually as a rich white man I think that adopting and raising a child from Bangladesh is something to be admired,  but I digress . . .

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to destroy another’s reputation. Watch out for it for this for it is ugly. It turns voters off.  

About Nationalism and Internationalism
You may want to look beyond Megyn at Fox;  Murdock may well be at the root of your problems in the first debate.  I always look for the third party in any conflict. Why would Murdock oppose you? Well that is very simple, you are a Nationalist, and Murdock, Obama and Bill Clinton (Rhodes Scholar) are all Internationalists. We are seeing how Obama tries to bypass Congress on the Iran deal by going to the United Nations.

About Obama
That Obama is the only president to ever secure a second term with a smaller percentage of the vote than in his first election. He got roughly 7.8 fewer million votes from whites, 1.6 million fewer voters from blacks, 1.8 million fewer votes from young voters, and four million fewer votes from women. In fact contrary to popular belief, fewer people voted in election 2012 than in any of the three previous elections.  So how was he able to win? Obama won the election because his share of the Latino votes rose a full 4 points to 71% giving him a full 700,000 plus additional votes from Latinos. This was called a seismic shift in the voting pattern. Not true.  Was there some “Monkey Business”?.

There is a lot of black propaganda (lies) connected with Illegal Immigration. One of these is “Anchor Babies” which is unconstitutional.  Yes I know a high court pronounced this constitutional, but aren’t we finding that one of the key areas we HAVE to FIX is the Justice Department, which at best is riddled with other agenda and at worst does not exercise due diligence. We don’t have to enact new laws about anchor babies. We just have to get the constitution applied to them correctly.

Because of Obama’s 2012 win, it seems the powers that be have decided that it is a good idea to give Latinos everything that they want. Why do I think this? Why else choose Jeb Bush with his Latino wifey?

There are a few more reasons why Obama must hate and fear you.

  • You might still prove that his birth certificate is false, some convincing data circulating on this on the net.
  • You block his efforts to try for a third term, without you he could have bamboozled the other candidates into letting him run, but with you there he can no longer use the argument that there is nobody there out there able to do the job.
  • You stand to destroy his heritage. You challenged him on illegal immigration and I am willing to bet my bottom dollar that you will undo his Iran deal. There is a volcano that is going to erupt when you create a workable healthcare system and replace ObamaCare.  Don’t underestimate teh man, he has the military in his pocket.Obama must hate you with a passion and he is a tricky-dicky who doesn’t play by any ethical or political rules.  So Mr. Trump please watch your back.

About Big Pharma
Their strategy is to make billions off “enforced” inoculations in 2016 and beyond.  You oppose this because you understand and know about autism.  So you can expect Big Pharma to spend millions trying to get you destroyed. Thank you for your integrity on this matter. 

About Big 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)

Examine these mind blowing facts

For a decade or more the corporate class and teh investor class they have persuaded conservatives NOT to increase corporate taxes. Unfortunately the effective and workable solution is often in the middle. It appears you know this. Your tax policy is both simple and fair, and doesn’t favor any American, corporate or otherwise.  Your tax plan also calls it on the “investor class” to account for their unfair share of the economy. The top investors of America have used lobbyists to get privileged loopholes in what is deliberately an extremely complicated tax plan.

Hey one likes to play as a true team member and demonstrate loyalty.  We don’t live in an ideal world and you need to do what you have to do to win.

Cutting a bribe

The truth is that many people in high places have started getting nervous. The big-money interests have the system ‘gamed’; win or lose, they win. Furthermore in the past when they have lost they have succeeded in having the American taxpayer pick up the tab.. But you, Donald Trump, iIf elected you will break up a nice cozy relationship between BIG money, BIG business and BIG government.

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, all of these corrupt people are NOW running scared because you entered the race. What scares them is that you are the genuine thing; you got to the one percent through talent, intelligence and a lot of  hard work. They have bribed and cheated or twisted the game to get an unfair advantage. Maybe you have done so also, but now you are at the top of the game and no longer need to play along. They have made a system out of the idle rich (the banking class) and the idle poor (the welfare class) stealing from the man in the middle and I think you can see that it is high time that this pick pocketing should stop for it has been destroying America. There are some in the one percent who like you have earned their riches and their influence honestly, but they are now in the minority. There are many, many more who don’t deserve their ill-gotten gains. Sure they are in the one percent but they are corrupt. Definition of corrupt, using public office or position of influence for one’s own selfish ends. Such people are scared shitless that you will get elected and close down their rackets.

But again Donald please watch your back, for you are at risk. There is a lot of money in banking-as-usual. and this is what it looks like: Banking Today

third party

They are at risk because if you are the next president and if you are clean, they will be unable to bribe or blackmail you.  Then they are going to find themselves out in the cold.  Heavy-weights in the banking industry like Goldman Sachs are sitting pretty because, as one private-equity exec put it, “We’re in a no-lose situation.”  The Democrats win and we have Hillary, the GOP wins and we have Jeb Bush and Rubio. They can’t accept you or treat you nice.  It  is not only because this requires a change in their thinking, but what your success tells them is that their own ability to effect the outcome of elections is waning. They are having trouble facing the decline in their clout. Acknowledging that Washington politicians can’t stop you or still control the voters tells them that their game is over; their influence is declining.  This is why they are mad at you..

You have made great strides in making friends since you declared your candidacy, but other than giving the statists everything they want, you can expect  the class of republicans who rule an antiquated and corrupt Senate will seek to block you. This groups also controls teh party so expect them to be mean.  It won’t be anything you have done, it won’t be anything you are or stand for, it will be because you are a threat to them and “politics as usual”.  They cannot control or buy you.’

Note well: It was on Clinton’s watch that the Glass-Steagall Act was repealed, leading to the creation of the too-big-to-fail banks, and the banking crash of 2008. Clinton has promised Goldman Sachs that if she is elected there will be  “banking as usual”  With a simple stroke of your pen as president you could approve Elizabeth Warren’s “Glass-Steagall Act.”  and the big-bad-banking situation goes away, just like flimsy smoke from your genie lamp. Nobody else would have the courage but you. YOu don’t want to do it until you have teh reins firmly in your hands but you really do need to do it if you are sincere in wanting “to Make America Great Again”

About getting the Vote out
Your biggest challenge,the one that might still undo you,  is the opposition from the Koch brothers.  I visited your website this morning and observed you have good people working for you, some of them old Koch workers and are already aware of this challenge. I learned that your team is already translating your celebrity pull into organization on the ground. The crowds are coming to you, you don’t have to go to them. America and the world may still find out that you are not “just a pretty face”

The reason I bring subject of organization up is because recent presidential elections have been won by getting out the vote.  For G.W. Bush: it was having the Church Pastors take little old ladies to the polling booths; for Obama it was mounting a massively organized effort financed by George Soros to corral the older Latinos who did not understand the language nor did they understand the process and they were clueless on the Constitution. The Kochs have the boots on the ground and they are aware of the get-out-the vote challenge or they would not have been preparing for 2016 with Americans for Prosperity. If you can involve the young kids that would also be good. 20% do not even go out to vote and many are still living unhappily with their parents. Capture the imagination of the youth and you could win big time.

Yes you can finance your own election and yes you can win as the Republican Candidate or even as an Independent but I do not believe you can win unless you can match their organization. If they know you can do that , the Koch opposition will fold.

Word has it that the Kochs have budgeted 900 million for election 2016.

graph showing Koch political organization

 Koch Political Organization; Americans for Prosperity

Yet, if they and all the powers-that-be continue to be mean to you, you can absolutely run as an independent AND you can absolutely WIN as an independent.  Remember you do not have to get the 51% of the vote in a three way race.   If Bernie Sanders loses to Clinton, you will pick up many of his voters who lean Independent  You may lose some votes by switching, but gain many more.  Times have changed and today Independents outnumber registered voters, and today Independents are sick and tired of “Politics-as-Usual” and “Journalism-as-Usual”. We are especially sick of “Banking-as-Usual.”

If you choose to run as an Independent read “Politics IOU” for the successful blueprint.

 Quote for the Week

Sometimes by losing a battle, you find a new way to win a war. – Donald Trump. 

 

Will ObamaTrade benefit the American Taxpayer?

Is the  Devil in the Details, and are these Details have been Hidden and Obfuscated?

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

The problem was that while  all this was happening Obama’s Fast Track Trade bill was quietly slipped through the Senate. A lot of bribe money then and I suspect even more bribe money now.

Sadly (it would seem) few Senators even bothered to read the TPA  bill or even went down to the uber-secret room to get updated on the terms of TPP.

Open Secrets Blog reported several politicians whose net worth went up.  You can google this there.

Now Obama is back probably with even more BRIBE MONEY especially from BIG PHARMA.

THIS TRADE DEAL WILL BE DISASTROUS FOR AMERICA depriving of our sovereignty.

obamatrade

Trans Promotion Authority (TPA)
 TPA and TPP are actually different bills.

TPA (Trade Promotion Authority) or Fast Track gives a president increased power to negotiate Trade Deals with other countries without “interference” from Congress.  Congress may approve or disapprove a President’s Trade Agreement but Congressmen cannot amend or filibuster the deal once agreement is reached.

Historically this authority is not an executive right. For a limited time Congress grants a President this temporary privilege during the named life of a treaty, but only for the duration of a specific trade-deal.

Nixon first kicked off this authority and it stayed in effect from 1975 – 1994.   It was resurrected by the Trade Act of 2002 but expired on July 1, 2007. In 2012 the Obama Administration began seeking a renewal for the authority (and as we speak the heat is on).

What congressional rights will Congress be forced to give up with TPA, ?

Congress gives 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 gives up the chance to keep debate open until cloture. Most of all Congress gives up the constitutional requirement that Trade -treaties can only be approved  by a full two-thirds vote.

inijustrice

 

Pros
Republicans like Free Trade; they like the idea of giving a President the freedom to negotiate a Trade Deal with other countries, provided they can get an up and down vote on the agreement and with TPA  they can.

  • Countries are unlikely to commit to a deal that could later be changed in part or in full by Congress. Foreign countries want to know what they are getting into and that the deal is stable.
  •  This point is a negative/positive: Obama has shown in the past that when stopped by Congress he is quite willing to go it alone. His unilateral International agreements are likely to be thrown out by the courts (over time)for such is the American system. However in the meantime having a rogue President is an international embarrassment for America and would become a distraction and a liability as we ramp up for the next election. So why not let a little steam tickle out of those big ears, keep the lame-duck President happy and occupied. Then it would be less likely for things to blow up again. 

Cons forTPA
 Obama is no longer trusted by Republicans, by Americans or for that matter  even by his own party on this issue. So why give him more executive authority to again gum the works?

  • It would seem that Fast Track and TPP will operate ABOVE THE CONSTITUTION. With this transfer of authority Legislators give up their God Given right to do their job as defined by the constitution.
  • Already there is an unhealthy imbalance between the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary; TPA and TPP make this worse.
  •  While TPA is something different from TPP many republicans (like Paul Ryan) recognize that once a trade deal has been put on Fast Track, it is all but impossible to stop it. Since Fast Track was created by Richard Nixon few Trade Deals have been thwarted once they get fast-tracked.

With this in mind we have to look a little more intently at TPA and TPP. Do we really want ObamaTrade? Does the American Taxpayer really want Fast Track ?

or TPP?

Trans Pacific Partnership

Why do we seek to make Trade agreements?  The advantage lies in removing obstacles to the flow of goods and services between countries originating from local tariffs – remove the tariffs and producer and consumer both benefit whatever the country.

Liberalizing services in a Trade deal make them more accessible and efficient and provides an opportunity to open up industries long sheltered from foreign competitors. This is a good thing.

However according to leaks there is a lot in this partnership that has nothing whatever to do with trade:

  • Strong patent protection rules for Big Pharma.
  • 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.
  • The creation of 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 conducted by judges appointed for life in the American courts which subordinate to the Constitution.Where special interests appoint both the judge and the jury there will be arbitrary justice as in the darker ages on a darker continent.

esstablishment
Pros of TPP
The TPP covers a wide range of goods and services and finding common ground could be facilitated by a central agency similar to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs..This would facilitate Trade.

  • Industries like Big Pharma will get a boost because the treaty protects patents.
  •  Americans educated to provide technical services at home or abroad are likely to see their income go up as the demand for their services increases.

The movie, book and music Industries will benefit with copyrights given more teeth (protected by the TPP) Therefore, the higher-paid owners of intellectual property would receive more of the income gains from this Trade Treaty.

Cons to TPP

  • Trade Treaties promote cheaper goods from lower wage countries creating competition and putting local shops out of business. 
  • Fair Use and Free Speech could be adversely impacted. Social Media Sharing could berestricted, citing copyright restrictions. Yet this innocent social sharing has become an intrinsic part of the new Internet Culture and is a form of free speech and it is a good thing.
  •  The protected patents are going to reduce the availability of cheap generics, making drugs more expensive. This is bad especially for the poorer world countries, denying them generics that could save lives.
  • Corporations get excused from safety and/or quality and/or environmental responsibilities – not a good thing.
  • Product transparency will be disallowed. Efforts to get Big Agri to label meat products was thrown out in May justified by the most recent Trade deal. Instead of reinforcing transparency it would seem that TPP leans towards secrecy and complexity.
  • The extreme secrecy in which TPP has been incubated is a negative. Many of the things that went wrong with ObamaCare could also go awry with ObamaTrade simply because the devil is in the details and the details are being hidden or obfuscated. And because of TPA Congress will not be able to do anything about problems that surface AFTER THE DEAL IS STRUCK. With Fast Track, Congress is left with no other option than to throw out the whole Treaty BUT killing the treaty may not be the best solution; throwing out the baby with the bath water?
  • Of most concern though, is that TPP is designed to supersede American financial regulations. This will make ti all but impossible to get in ethics and correction on the International Banking Monopolies. TPP would empower the world’s largest banks, including 19 of the 30 biggest non-U.S. banks, to “sue” the U.S. government before extrajudicial tribunals. Note:it is said that the USA Federal Reserve has in the past bailed out some of these international banks We do not know this for sure, for this, too, is shrouded in an unacceptable secrecy. In all its existence the Federal Reserve has never been subjected to an audit.According to leakes the TPP empowers foreign banks to challenge new U.S. financial protections on the flimsiest of pretexts –  it becomes “illegal” to  frustrate the banks’ “expectation of profit.”  Hello? There is nothing specific or finite here, nothing to be proven, the profit clause is vague and a generality.TPP is also slated to include deregulation provisions written before the financial crisis – provisions that would conflict with bans on risky derivatives or policies that prevent banks from becoming “too big to fail.”  Sen. Warren and other financial experts are warning Congress and Obama that TPP “could make it harder for Congress and regulatory agencies to prevent future financial crises

So we have to ask the key question – is TPP intended to replace our Constitution?

Way back then, it was the States that created the Union, and they gave no authority to the central government via the U. S. Constitution that would provide powers they were not willing to give the central authority. They did not permit functions or activities given the Union to be given over to any agency outside the Union.

The Constitution states that the President shall have the power only with the Advice and Consent of the Senate to make treaties provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.  (Article II, section 2 paragraph 2)

unconstitutional

 

Where to from Here?

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

The people of America are suspicious and they do not like the TPP; polls show this clearly. Politicians 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.

2016 is just around the corner.

Polls however won’t defeat TPP.  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 in the face of power will the people be able to overcome TPP’s plutocracy?.

A New Civil War (2016)

Civil War 2016 rages on . . .

amash art competition.

 Untitled by Merissa Drew

In the eighteenth century we went to war, a horrid civil war with many dead.

Today we have a new civil war that is going to play out  in election 2016 and the outcome is as yet quite undecided.

We pray that civilization has now advanced far enough that in this new war for control over America ( and the world) that the any unnecessary use of force will be averted. It could be that that depends on your full engagement in the political process.

The problem: 

How to survive as a free, robust, pure republic while retaining our constitutional rights in the face of a very real threat from ass-holes that we have come to call terrorists.  

The players:
The Liberty Movement.
The Liberal Socialists.
A Military Industrial Complex
Justice and the Courts
Independent Voters

Round One goes to the Liberty Movement; thanks to a strategically astute stand by Presidential Candidate Rand Paul  the Patriot Act is set to die. Unless the IC do something before or when the Senate meets again on Sunday, section 215 (pronounced unconstitutional by the court) is set to slide into darkness.

The Patriot Act was conceived during a national crisis. With some time and distance behind us can the House construct a better solution to the problem. NOT an easy problem but I do believe they can.

There are two and only two crimes: Not taking the time to come to understanding, and secondly failing to engage in the political process in this critical time.

It could be that 2016 the world is on the tipping point and it is you and only you who will determine the outcome of this new war.

Quote for the Week

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. – Thomas Jefferson. 

About Transparency- what we still don’t know over ten years later?

Does Government have the right to suppress data in this new Information Age?

We yearn for freedom

Absolutely not.

Before the infamous “911 Commission” was formed, Congress had its own 9/11 investigation…

From February to December, 2002, the Senate and House Intelligence Committees conducted a “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”

The shocking truth is that President Bush censored 28 pages from the report.

Members of Congress who wanted to read the missing pages were first required to swear an oath not to reveal their contents. President Obama promised to release the pages, but hasn’t yet done so; yet another promise broken.

What’s in those pages? 

We don’t know and that is what should be unacceptable to all men of goodwill in this new age.

What do we know about this report? We DO know these pages shocked the members of Congress who read them…

  • Rep. Walter Jones: “[T]he information contained in the redacted pages is critical to our foreign policy moving forward and should thus be available to the American public.”
  • Rep. Thomas Massie: “I had to stop every two or three pages and rearrange my perception of history…it’s that fundamental.”

What does this suggest?  That things in the Middle East, and perhaps in the world are not what they seem.  It also suggests that our Government is still withholding data from us and this is unacceptable. We do not want is the American public duped into supporting inappropriate acts of costly aggression which lower our standard of life. What we surely don’t want is more False Flags. It won’t happen if we all agree and demand transparency in Government.

Walter Jones and Rep. Stephen Lynch introduced House Resolution 14, which would declassify these 28 pages and they are to be commended.

Public Knowledge has the best overview.
Grandma is somewhat optimistic that this FCC is a move to create a more equitable playing field.That said, we negotiate frothy rapids as our society changes from the industrial model to the new digital model, founded on connecting to each other over the Internet.

We must be ever vigilant to keep the Internet (our new foundation) free and to keep America free. )

Net-Neutrality Changes the Game Plan.

“I have the Cyber Law all written for you Mr. President; it just wants your executive signature,” said Rat-face.

The last honest politician was puzzled.  It sounded like Rat-face, a lobbyist, had just written legislation.

“Not at this time,” said the wannabe Oligarch

“You have signed all my other bills into law, without bothering with Congress, why not this one,” muttered Rat-face sullenly.

“You put a man in a hot tub, and you increase the temperature by ten degrees every half hour and did you know Ratty, that you can boil that man alive?”

“You don’t have to tie him down?”

“Not if the gradient is right.”

“He won’t jump out?” asked Rat-face, astounded.

“No, he won’t jump” said the king-president.

“Why not?”

“Because he doesn’t notice the small changes.”

“So we have to let this one  heat up?” asked Rat-face, finally getting it.

“Yes this is only warm now,” said Crabben, “Yet, Mr. President this is the perfect example of the one factor besides gradient, that is relevant in these PR wars.”

“And that is?’ The President looked at the international corporate leader with some interest.

“You have to make that soaking man, sitting there in a tub that is too hot for him; you have to make him think it was his idea in the first place!”

“Touche,” said the President smiling broadly.

“Are you perhaps both talking about ‘Net Neutrality’?” asked Rat-face. He cracked a stupid smile.

Crabben raised an eyebrow, “No other internet laws have yet been successful to curb the freedom of the Internet, have they Mr. President?”

“I don’t have to use my executive powers to pass ‘Net-neutrality’ “ said the President. “Congress is going to do that for me.”

“My point exactly.”

“So what exactly does ‘Net Neutrality’ give us?” asked Rat-face. “My Cyber Security bill takes the issue much further.”

“What it achieves is it gets the little man willing to stay in a boiling pot,” laughed the President

“It gives us that,  but ‘net neutrality’ also gives us global taxes,” said Crabben with a wicked smile.

“And that is why Congress has to be the one to pass this one.” Crabben nodded.

“Why would Congress want to pass it?” asked Rat-face.

“Because they think it is a good law and this time the people want it.” Crabben winked at the President.

“Yes, you sure have put a good spin on the PR.,” said the President.

“Thank you Sir.”

The lights flickered as a helicopter was heard overhead. The little group fell silent, then moved to take their seats.

A military man moved briskly to the podium. As he stood ramrod straight they could see how well he had been decorated. With all that brass on his front chest, the last good politician now sitting on the other side of the room, was afraid he would pitch forward.  He listened carefully for name, rank and serial number and when none was forthcoming, he wondered why the uniform was being so secretive?

Medals began his address to the global elites. “I am here to talk to you about getting control of the Internet.” He was going straight to the point. This Internet was the hot topic.

“I’ll begin with a short history; we were caught napping when the Internet went together. We thought the creators of the Internet a bunch of students in Academia playing with computers; they weren’t into money, so they operated beneath our radar.”

“Not good,” said the President.

Crabben remembered how long it had taken him to get the newspapers under his thumb; easily thirty years. Then another twenty until the powers of the Big Screen stood up to salute him.

Medals continued, “Geeks created the Net and with it a new culture of freedom; free speech and free search to be followed by free applications and free content. As long as it all remained free, we let them be; big mistake. When we woke up, everybody was in on the act.

Crabben remembered how the masses had migrated to the Web; searching, and starting blogs, and creating a whole new spider web of social media, sharing with friends and families and even mere acquaintances. How was a body, ever to get control of that?

“Pornography was ramping up.” Medals continued. “We decided that if we could police the porn, we could police the Net.”

“But that didn’t happen,” said Crabben icily.

“No it didn’t happen.”

Techie-geeks had written programs to put Internet viewing under parental control and the Elites had lost another skirmish in the Internet war.

“What is the goal here?”

The uniform answered quickly, “Now that everybody has a website or a blog, what we are after is a rule from a Federal Body of Control; we need the DOJ to give us the power to turn sites on or off.”

The last good politician gagged. He had a vision of individual sites popping on and off, not because the creators wanted them to go away, and certainly not because there was no interest from a Web audience; they would be turned off because the owner of the site or the programmer had fallen foul of the military or the elites. He felt a bad headache coming on.

“Doesn’t “net neutrality” make that impossible?” he asked tentatively. He was outnumbered in this elite gathering.

“Yes and no. This law gives us a foothold. It establishes the right for us to interfere. Before it was all “hands-off”.”

“And this DOJ power that you want, could it eventually loosen the technical and structural control of the web?” The last good politician was computer savvy and he was genuinely concerned.

There was a pregnant silence before the military man answered his question in the affirmative.

“I don’t get it?” said Rat-face breathlessly. “What difference is all this going to make?”

“You are not supposed to get it,” said the President, “It is meant to be confusing.”

“ ‘Net-neutrality’ is game-changing,” said Crabben. “It points us in a new direction.”

“But?” asked Ratty.

“It could change the world; “ said the Uniform flatly, “Now it is still itsy, bitsy tiny, one bit at a time kind of control,  but we have not had that before. One day we could be given a new global power to take the techies out, web site by website and then none will dare oppose us.”

“And then the global elites will rule the world,” thought the President, who was near the end of his term and so badly badly wanted to become a global oligarch.

Crabben rubbed his hands together greedily,  imagining the potential for a brand-new, global tax.

How they now Pass Laws is Beyond Crazy

Ratified by a GOP congress it has been a long and scary slide since 2008 into more poverty and more tyranny: 

Now once again we have had an abomination in a BIG OMNIBUS BILL that was passed by a Republican Congress in a way where it was impossible for them  to even have time to READ THE BILL   And, yes, hello, of course this bill, like many big omnibus bills before, it was riddled with many irrelevant DIRTY SECRETS.

In the bill which was not written by any congressman but rather by accountants, lobbyists and lawyers (legislation without representation) Dark Money Groups were again given protection to withhold the names of their contributors.  The S.E.C ‘s effort to create rules to force groups and corporations to disclose their campaign contributors was effectively blocked.  This is an unethical, and ugly move to keep the public blindfolded about who is writing the BIG CHECKS.

Note: Since the Citizens United decision in January 2010, politicians have collected more than $500 MILLION in  dark money from phantom donors according to the Center for Responsive Politics,

The way a law should be created is:

  1. A problem is seen
  2. A politician drafts a bill to solve same  problem.
  3. The bill is about only one subject, the solution to the problem. One bill, one subject. The bill description starts with a summary and is then expanded and has a conclusion at the end. it is all about the same thing – there is nothing new that is introduced into it.
  4. The bill is posted on the web where it stays at least six weeks.
  5. During that time it can be viewed by all who have an interest or who would be affected should the bill become law.
  6. IT MUST BE READ and studied by all the politicians who will be voting on the bill.
  7. Each politician has to instruct their aides and staff to inspect the bill in depth during the six week period  and look for ramifications – i.e. places where the bill will be contrary to the current body of law or create a destructive precedent.
  8. Each bill should also be investigated by the Department of Justice to police out vested interests or monopoly.
  9. After the six weeks the bill should be brought to a vote.
  10. When it is brought to the vote on the floor the proceedings should be videoed and all votes should be recorded. The video would be kept on record.

When we are looking at a funding bill , it should clearly state what is being funded and why. Facts and figures. There should be no extraneous data. One subject, one bill one vote. 

According to Senator Elizabeth Warren, Citigroup slipped in another pernicious bailout provision hidden in the most recent spending omnibus bill. Thank you Senator for your integrity. And you have been proven right; the Citigroup supporters were saying that that provision curbing banking corruption, is no big deal for it is all covered in the Volcker rule.  Hello? Now the FED (which I would like to point out does not have a place in our legislative process and refuses an audit) now in their infinitive wisdom, they have decided to put implementation  of the Volcker rule on the never never. Go figure. The losers? Yes Senator you are right. The losers are we the people.

But lest I lose you in the complexity of the legal and financial jargon that is designed to prevent understanding, let’s look at the exact out-point here. We have a simple system given us by the founders. and it works just fine. It also makes good sense. This is what we have to remedy, to get back in again. 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. Now that would be sane legislation.

How have lobbyists and special interests gotten their grubby hands into our legislative process?    How dare they?  They are greedy and nasty and selfish and have no concept of the greatest good. And what they use to perplex and exploit us is plain and simple. They use those big, cumbersome bills that are in and of themselves a generality. It is all being done with Omnibus Bills which are introduced to Congress and not even ever read. Yet THEY ARE PASSED by the politicians we are electing.

legislative Responsibility

An omnibus bill is a proposed law that covers a number of diverse or unrelated topics. Omnibus is derived from Latin and means “for everything”. An omnibus bill is a single document that is accepted in a single vote by a legislature but packages together several measures into one or combines diverse subjects. it is a generality and in our legislative process allowing generality opens the door to dictatorship, monopoly and enslavement.

An omnibus bill makes for bad legislation and its effect is to destroy the democratic process.  Because of their size and scope, such bills stop debate and limit scrutiny. The Amendments that are hidden in them are NEVER in the greatest good.

Did you eve wonder how we get bad laws. Simple. This is how.

If we agree to laws being passed in this way we deserve to lose our liberty.

If we want to put an integrity back into Washington we have to first fix the system.

Politics IOU

A World on the Tipping Point

This political novel is a work of fiction, yet it gives insights into our political history, our future and our constitutional process. It focuses on what is precious in our heritage.

The book has a touch of sex, a touch of violence and is sometimes funny.

Right now as we advance into an Inauguration of a President loved by the people, slandered by the LEFT and feared by the Global Elites, the parallels are scary.

The government we get is a reflection of our collective reality.

Why is this pertinent at this time?

This is a story of a little rotund man called Corkscrew by the opposition.  He is the president of the largest and most powerful nation in the world, yet (from his view) he is being treated unfairly because he is not eligible to run for a third term. He wants to be Emperor or perhaps even a global oligarch. The majority are beginning to realize that in the eight years that he governed, he didn’t really make their lives that much better. Yet and here is the rub: he is supported by the mighty rich global elites who are loath to lose an unfair advantage.  

This book is relevant because one week away from the inauguration of Donald Trump there are some very disturbing parallels.  False flags abound. What is being hidden? What don’t we know that we should know.

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.”

In America what is surfacing on social media is that there is NO evidence to support Russia having successfully influenced the American 2016 elections.  The LEFT lost because they chose an arrogant, inept and crooked candidate, Wikileaks exposed the DNC corruption. Assange has said his source was NOT Russian.

We can figure out that if Trump and Putin become friends, as both are AGAINST THE N.W.O. that the global game of open borders and regime change from above is over. Jacob Rothchild has said that Donald Trump is a danger to the N.W.O.

This book (Politics IOU) was written to raise awareness of how a hidden influence can tear apart the fabric of a culture. We lose our heritage only when we let others set out to exploit and divide us.

How we are controlled

In 2017 what is of concern is that:

  • That this election was fought bitterly and after the fight the nation has failed to heal. This shows us that somebody is still subverting us.
  • That false narratives being spread to de-legitimize the Trump presidency get debunked and disproven but then they pop right up again. As each lie is debunked, it seems to go away, but within a day or two the same old stale discredited narrative is resurrected on some different channel.
  • As the CIA baits Russia and Obama amasses troops on the Russian border what stands out loud and clear is that somebody wants World War Three but that it is definitely not the American people.
  • ONE BIG COLOSSAL outpoint:
    Nowhere is there any evidence of bad intent by Putin. He hasn’t eaten babies, he hasn’t been rude or nasty, he hasn’t assassinated an American president, or any other president of a sovereign nation, and no, he hasn’t even made a lewd or dirty pass at Michelle Obama. In fact as hostilities wind down in Syria, it is Russian boots on the ground, feeding and protecting the children and fixing the minefields to make it safe there again. Is it time to rethink good guy/bad guy?

    We are a constitutional republic. If nobody interferes with us we can agree to disagree and sort out our differences in the voter booth every four years.  That is the sane way to handle differences. It is a good system making for a smooth transfer of power. It only breaks down when those who favor “Might is Right” muscle in and try to subvert the system and sow seeds of unrest.

    Problems arise when the population is uneducated. Reading Politics IOU is an easy and pleasant way to remedy this problem and to figure out what is really going on. The best thing is it is FREE. Here is your free download. Politics IOU.

    America stays free if we refused to let ourselves be divided.  We have much in common whichever side of the aisle fits best with our reality.  We don’t have to let the oligarchies divide us.  We are all Americans first and foremost. We are all special.

 Some stable data:
  • That Russia is and will always be an opponent. Fair enough.
  • Putin has led Russia away from communism; that being friends with Russia may well be to our advantage in dealing with the communist China and the N.W. O.
  • That Putin supports Christianity, says he likes the moral and spirituality of a church.
  • That Putin expelled Soros from Russia
  • That Soros was/is Obama’s puppet master
  • That Putin opposes the global NWO and has cut the Russian economy free from centralized banking.
  • That the only gain from the Iraq war that cost us so much was a new Central Bank one of the first in the Middle East.
  • That the Syrian war was ILLEGAL, was never declared by Congress.
  • That the rebels causing the atrocities in Syria are set up and funded by Saudi Arabia, supported and armed by Obama & Clinton.
  • That ISIS was created & armed on Obama’s watch.
  • That this has all culminated in a Lame-duck president going rogue and signing an executive order to expel 72 Russian diplomats; a clear act of aggression. The big danger here is an American President who for some time has been acting like a king.

Liberals are still hurting because they lost the election. The press is very adept at putting a spin on things.  Political consultants aim to “smear” the political opponent and the press (guardians of the truth) are letting them get away with it. The art of the attack ad was created by GOP Karl Rove in daddy-bush days, but perfected in 2008 & 2012 by the Democrats. The attack ad gives political  power to special interests.

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to destroy another’s reputation.  Dr Ben has faulty memory, Trump is Hitler, Trump is anti-women, Trump is too-much-for women, Trump is racialist, Trump is anti-Muslim, Lying Ted, Low Energy Jeb, Crooked Hillary. These labels are GENERALITIES and like all GENERALITIES the clever voter spots that they are partly or largely FALSE. Things are never quite the way they seem.

The CIA, CNN, WaPo, Times, have come out in support of Russo-phobia. Why is this? That we have this much turmoil as we go into the Inauguration, is disturbing.

poplular-vote

America is a constitutional Republic and Donald Trump is our president elect, so the popular vote is irrelevant. Where it becomes important is when half of the population don’t see this, and buy into “the injustice of it all”. They simply do not understand the electoral college. However know that it is questionable if Donald Trump even lost the Popular Vote.

Why it is so important to Protect our Civil Liberties

Is it not the job of every American to protect our heritage? 

If you look at his map you will see that, although the USA is flawed, we are still among the luckiest people in the world.

Map of Freedom

In the United States we enjoy many rights that we hold dear: the right to worship freely, the right to think freely and to voice our opinions. Note that this system bequeathed to us by our founding fathers is in no way perfect, but this map shows us that we are still far ahead of the rest of the world. South America is not yet free but it is coming along.

If we are all to win the influence has to go from North to South and not the other way around. And as far as the rest of the world we need to make sure that the influence goes from West to East and that we do not accept totalitarianism.

Ours is not a fast system. Where we have erred is in trying to enforce our reality on others, to make them accept democracy too quickly.  These maps show clearly the advantage our system has in the world and given time and good leaders other countries will come to see this also. The problem is one of education, not war and the Internet is helping.

It has taken a long time for our politics to become inclusive. Society has had to grow beyond the bad idea of excluding certain segments of the population, like blacks and women. There are two more battles still playing out along these lines and these are gay rights and the rights of illegal aliens. Give it a little more time and these problems will also sort themselves out. We can’t short change the process We cannot prevent discrimination or even exploitation, but we are not all that far from making all people equal under the law.

Politics has been evolving in one other significant way. This is in a growing ability for the people to demand honest politicians. Finally we have the technology to demand transparency in government. At little or no cost we are now able to track the actions of our elected officials via the Internet. There is a simple truth and that is that corruption and evil cannot survive when the light of day is shone upon them.

Transparency International defines corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It may surprise you to find that we in America enjoy relatively clean government, for there is a correlation between democracy and corruption. That said we still have a way to go. You can play your part by taking on the civic duty of watching your elected officials and writing them whenever they get out of line.

THE MAP OF CORRUPTION

Map of Corruption

With the unique opportunity afforded us by the world wide web we are now able to hold our elected officials accountable. Power corrupts and the truth is that it is we who keep our policies in line but only if we are vigilant.

I laugh when I hear of Congresses low approval rate. Hello! Who is to blame? I don’t think I have the right to speak out or complain, except when I am doing my job to keep them in line. I think that is why the founding fathers blessed me with freedom of speech.

I write regularly to my representatives and have been gratified by observing positive change. It is easy to communicate regularly with your elected officials via

Downsize DC (https://downsizedc.org/)

Popvox (https://www.popvox.com/)

Popvox tries to bridge the gap between the input the public wants to provide and the information U.S. Senators and Representatives want from us.

Downsize DC wants to downsize and decentralize the government by restoring constitutional limits and the Bill of Rights.

Both sites make it easy to communicate to elected officials and both sites are informative.

We have had another election and this time there has been a major shift in power. Now Obama wants to turn back the clock. In no way a good idea.

This effort by Obama to undo what is a delicate and constructive balance between the three branches of government is at best an effort by Obama to be right and to reward the Latinos that put him in power in 2012.

At worst it is a premeditated crime by a crooked constitutional lawyer with a lack of a moral compass.

It is clear when looking at the comments by liberals on Facebook that the Liberal defense was orchestrated; They speak with one voice in the comments on Facebook. This proves premeditation. What I am hearing nnot from one but by many, is:

  • It is the fault of Republicans who sought to oppose Obama.(Justification)
  • Past presidents (some of them Republican) have also used Executive override.
  • It is legal (not true) This is being taken out of context.
  • It has precedent  This also is taken out of context.

We have to examine one more scenario; I don’t like it: but I have to put the question out there,  In how far is Obama an International Socialist pawn? Is his trashing of the American system and culture, a global plot?   A couple off things that have happened lend credence to this last and scary threat. This is the influx (invasion) of South American children crossing our borders. This had to be planned on a global scale; couldn’t have happened otherwise. I also look at Obama’s last election tagline “Forward”.  “Forward” shouted out at us from every podium where Obama talked in 2012. “Forward” is owned lock stock and barrel  by International Socialism. “Move forward beyond Capitalism” is the socialist battle cry.

Do we want Socialism in America?

The independent view is that both Capitalism and Socialism are corrupt and neither is a workable system in this day or age.

We have here an extreme danger which if not quickly brought under control opens the door to a global end-game after which we will lose all our freedoms, and we will lose what is left of our American culture.

America has already lost its prosperity on Obama’s watch.  Here are the figures.

Poverty rate 30 year HIGH ~15%
Labor participation rate 38 year LOW ~61%
Food stamps on all time HIGHS
Avg family income 8% LOWER 
Individual income 7% LOWER 
GAP between middle class and top 10% WIDER
Black unemployment 3% HIGHER
5.5 million more people BELOW poverty line
Home ownership 4% LOWER
Healthcare cost increase 25-40% HIGHER

In the last two years of his term, Obama lacks credibility. He has to be stopped.

The only way I can see this happening is that the opposition from Republicans and Independents and even Liberals with a conscience,  come together and act as one.  We need to make it quite clear that Obama meddling with our system will not be tolerated even if we impeach him. Until now although I saw him to be a liability, I was happy to have him live out his term. This overreach ha changed my mind.

My advice to all who see the danger is to have a referendum ON EXECUTIVE CLOUT. Do we in America want a king or autocratic rule or a dictator?

We can go the way of the courts and we should, but I am warning that we may be up against a shyster lawyer, I doubt that any process that takes too long will win the day. There are shady parts to the law and bribed or threatened or blackmailed judges, and I suspect the control of the courts was well in hand before Obama stuck his neck out.

Obama's crown

The only thing that will save freedom in America is a quickly executed referendum. Let the American people decide if they do or do not want to be governed autocratically.

Is there a precedent for solving a problem like this with a referendum? I do not know the answer. But I also ask if there is a precedent for a President usurping the role of the Senate and the House to make his own laws.  .

Note: our legislators are elected by the people and were returned to office in larger numbers in 2014. It can be argued that the 2014 election was a referendum on the Obama solutions and that these were repudiated

 

Obama's throne

Do we as Americans want to go back to having a corrupt King?

A few words on Immigration:

One thing I see missing in Obama’s immigration law is the demand that immigrants learn English. Our culture is embodied in our language. That is why this is so important.

Compare Mexico to the USA (same continent)  Why is Mexico poor and riddled with lawlessness?. Their poverty and crime and gang warfare is embraced in their language and their ideas and their history; theirs is a lawless culture. This is why we do not want to import their lawlessness here. Like Obama, it seems they do not have an innate respect for the law. We should not be forced by Obama to take on the Latino culture.

It is only fair and just to allow some immigrants in from Mexico but they should come with enough to start a business, and they should be fluent in English. Not because English is better or Englishmen are superior but it costs a lot to have more than one official language and we cannot afford that right now.

It has been proven that the American heritage and culture has produced prosperity or why is it that we all these immigrants want to come into our country. They are welcome but only if they adopt our work ethic, the language of the majority and don’t bring any baggage with them.

In conclusion
If the electorate chooses to keep a legislative integrity (for that is what is at stake here) or even if they choose to support the Obama’s law, order will go in again. We now have a major confusion that Obama that has brought into our fine land.

Confusion is counter productive and it is destructive and this confusion should not have been introduced at this time, for it is not in the common good. This is not a good time. 

What we want is for our leaders to bring back order.

What we don’t want is leaders who introduce confusion and seek to bypass the laws of the land.

Let’s have a referendum and then we can all move forward together AS AMERICANS.

We let Obama win this battle, and the slide to rule by tyranny will have begun.

After that it will all go downhill very fast.

Hidden Agenda – the Truth about the National I.D. Database

Bio-metric ID and Past Oppression of the Blacks in South Africa – is there a connection?

Most Americans feel that AIG (assholes in greed) and their too-big-to-fail cronies are getting too big a slice of the American pie. This blog-post examines a similar situation in history when there was oppression and inequity in how the wealth of a country was being Mis-shared.

Big Brothers

I am sharing a little of my South African history in the hopes that the new immigration legislation does not in any hidden way embody the bad identity ideas employed earlier in South Africa.  I came to see in South Africa that the first step in the creation of an oppressive regime is getting every body to accept and to carry identity papers.

I grew up in a little mining town in South Africa.  My father was a School Principal so together with the Banker, the Doctor, the Lawyer and the Pastor we enjoyed elite status; elite status but only in the “very best white” community.  As a school principal my father managed not only an elementary school but also a boarding school. There he had approximately 20 low-level janitorial Black workers who were housed in a compound   In addition there were also Black workers who came in the morning and left in the night,  working on that or this project.  As a “white master” in South Africa my father was considered to be fair, his workers were housed and fed and they were paid, although they would have seen our minimum wage workers as “kings”. In one of our “ethical” father-daughter discussions he explained that while he didn’t quite agree with it, other than voting for the “United Party” not the oppressive Nationalists, there was not much he could do about it. As I grew up I wasn’t quite that reasonable.

The transient workers came out before sunrise to work at the school and then went home after dark. Home to them was a ghetto over the hill where the good whites could not see them, and had no idea how they lived. I found out later that, although South Africa was one of the richest gold countries in the world, they lived for the most part with no lights or running water. The “think” in the White community was that Blacks were genetically inferior – believe it or not this was even taught in the Universities. I wonder what the clever Obama would say to this?

I have an inquiring mind and I have never meekly just “accepted the way things are, not then in the bloom of youth and not now as I enter my golden years. I was fortunate in that at least my father was knowledgeable and willing to answer my “off the wall” questions.

The United Party, founded by Jan Smuts had an interesting history. South Africa had supported the allies in the Second World War and Smuts had had a hand in the final peace treaty. Ironically it was Smuts who drafted the list of “Human Rights” still on record with the United Nations. Dad was able to explain how the oppressive Nationalist government had gained power. There was a problem with the gold mines in South Africa for the gold was marginal; not a great amount of gold per square foot of rock. The very rich international controllers of the mines had a vested interest in keeping the blacks subordinated; this was how they were able to pay the miners sub-minimum wages. In this way international financiers who owned the gold could maximize the mining profits.

In the end 10% of the South African population was able to control the other 90%. Here in America it is the 1% controls the 99%.

At that time  the Powers-that-Be were actually able to relocate large sectors of the Black population, send them all back to undeveloped rural areas, an amazing feat. They were able to determine who could study, who could work, and where the people would be forced to live? Take three steps back and just imagine relocating all Americans in the State of Washington and plonking them down in Nevada. Unbelievable but It was done.

How was it done?  This is a good question to ask as our Nice Government Men draft new legislation to control not just illegal immigrants but also seek to control you and me. It has always been done with Identity Papers. 

Know that that grand experiment actually didn’t work in South Africa, I mean the homeland plan. . Yes many were moved out to the back-lands but the problem was that low-level, low paid workers were still needed in the built up areas. Sound familiar? It was in South Africa when I first heard the term guest workers.  What is wrong with a guest worker program? The biggest problem is that husbands and wives are separated for long periods of time, and the family unit is destroyed. A possible consequence is a wide spread of sexual diseases; witness how Aids in Africa is way out of control.

Obedience

Autocratic Education

I came to understand all of this in 1978 (time of the Soweto riots) when I was invited to participate in an experiment to train Black programmers for employment in an all White British company (ICL) operating in Johannesburg. We had twelve hundred applicants but for the first batch, we selected only 40 students. The discrimination among the White employees notwithstanding, there was a good reason why we were set up to fail. We had selected some of the most able and wonderful beings I have had privilege to work with in this lifetime, all Black. I remember one especially outstanding student who stood proud and tall, over six feet high.  His skin was dark, and he reminded me of the royal tribes in central Africa at the time of the Queen of Sheba.  He was an achiever, this student, who had two Math degrees. Yet he had no electricity or running water in his tiny hovel. In the early morning he would pick up fruits and vegetables from the market and drive to the affluent White suburbs to sell his produce. Does this sound familiar? So the next time you see a Latino selling fruit on the roadside it could be he that too, has a good education.

The British company in South Africa was structured into competing profit centers. Each profit center was like a small business, with each middle manager operating like an entrepreneur.  In order to survive they had to make a profit. So the new Black workers that we offered  had to be proven producers. When I went out to survey these middle managers I discovered that what was wanted was “self-starters”, yet my students had been trained only in obedience.  There is a trend today towards this kind of autocratic education, but in a digital age this is not what is going to bring back prosperity. My students were very good at following, but that was all. Here in America in the new millennium what we we also need is self-starters.

I developed educational techniques to break down the past indoctrination and the bad propaganda where they had been seen as “non-people”. In the end we were successful. Out of the forty students 36 graduated and were successfully assimilated into the all-white company, my first experience with Diversity. Two students were let go because they could not take the stress of the training, and reverted to drugs. Two were picked up by BOSS (Bureau of State Security) because their papers were not in order.  I was never persuaded that they were bad or that they were revolutionaries as accused.

Man with thumbprint and eyeball

Bio-metric ID

I saw it then all at first hand, and I began to realize that what tipped the scales towards oppression was the pernicious identity papers that not only invaded privacy, but put together with an abusive government, devastated a country.

Please think this through:  At that time in South Africa they did not have the technology to create bio-metric ID cards. At that time the abusive government did not have our  sophisticated computers to track people, nor did they have GPSs; They also did not yet have drones to turn on their own people.  What they did have was a package of nasty identity papers and with this alone  they were able to oppress a whole race.

According to Ron Paul, the national ID could create a new federal database with bio-metric information on all citizens and all of those who work within the United States. It would be illegal for anyone to have a job without an ID card. “Every time any citizen applies for a job, the government will know…[and] once the government bureaucrats know exactly how we run our lives, they will try and control them.”

I, Grandma, want to play it safe. There is a lot of noise regarding IRS targeting of the Tea Party. With a Federal database soon it may not only be these enthusiastic young idealists,  also Churches and Schools could be quashed.  Because Power corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolutely, it is not too far-fetched for a popular and charismatic President to seek a third term that goes on forever,.and effectively destroys the Republic.  Bio-metric ID cards open the door to a military coup. So you think it cannot happen in America?

Wake up and smell the coffee. Read Politics IOU

Conclusion:

With the bio-metric ID card that grossly invades our privacy, our “Nice Government Men” can decide where we live, who we marry, how we breed, what schooling we get, what groups we support and where we work and I am sure they will be able to invent another 100 uses for these cards to entrap and control us.

A solution for illegal immigrants needs to be found that is simple and fair and brings about growth in their own sector
