Understanding Global (2017)

What does it mean to be American?

It means you love your country, you are a conservative and you understand your constitution.

You believe in rule of law and honor the consent of the governed.

You are fair to all citizens, but also proud of your roots.

It means you always put your country first.

pullharder

Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make your choice:

 Liberty or “Might is Right”?

Patriot or Global?

Global is made up out of a whole bunch of corrupt players who got clever at gaming the system – it has made them filthy rich and for nearly a century it has been making the rest of us slowly poorer. This is not capitalism, this is crony capitalism.

Not quite yet a civil war, almost, but none can deny that there is an ongoing fierce PR war  Swamp dwellers are reluctant to give up an unfair privilege

The global oligarchies spin a fancy theme. Do your homework, be sure you find and fully understand their hidden agenda.

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

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

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

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

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

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

Power corrupts and absolute Power corrupts absolutely

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shadow-gvt

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

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

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

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

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

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

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

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

Conclusion
Thanks to this election, more Americans are researching, reading books, going to the Twitter feeds of our leaders, and attending rallies. Many have assumed a responsibility to find out the truth FOR THEMSELVES, and many more share their realizations with others in social media. They see we are under assualt.

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

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

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

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

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

Why Do Attacks On Trump Continue Despite Massive Popular Support?

By Griping Grandpa

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

“Why?” you may ask.

Mr. X

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

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X at Work

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

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

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

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

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

Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Open Letter to Kellyanne Conway

Some thoughts about polling to win:

how to win

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

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

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

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

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

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

imp issuesThis analysis is useful but incomplete.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

trump promise

Grandma’s Conclusions:

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

Here are a  few suggestions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a team inspect voting machines NOW.

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

There you have it.

I hope this was helpful.

They try so hard to block Trump’s message

Helping you make sense out of the efforts to “slime Donald J. Trump 

shutterstock_177770915

CRC senior vice president Matthew Vadum has an interesting take in FrontPageMag about the mainstream media’s all-out war to destroy GOP nominee Donald Trump. It’s not really about countering Trump’s message. It’s about preventing him from reaching the voters.

As he writes, “The leftist narrative being deployed against Trump is based on lies, half-truths, and nothing-burgers. They don’t even have to make sense. All they have to accomplish is to hold Trump up to ridicule.”

Now that Donald Trump is safely ensconced as the official Republican nominee for president, the mainstream media is running an intense around-the-clock operation to deprive him of the relatively unfiltered media exposure he needs to seal the deal with the American people.

Trump being silly and playful in front of TV cameras or utilizing his sense of humor is cast as evidence of a disordered, antisocial mind. The media is focusing on minor benign details and marketing them as the evil deeds of an evil man. This is by design.

Preventing Trump from communicating effectively with Americans didn’t work so well during the primaries. We will see what happens now.  With Trump, the master communicator whose outreach skills arguably mirror President Obama’s, the message is everything. Squelch his voice and he’s finished.

So Americans are subjected to a buffet of stupid “news” stories that happen to help journalists make their case against Trump. Meeting the Donald head-on wouldn’t work at  all so instead it’s death by a thousand cuts from a thousand mosquito directions.

For example: the fact that a veteran admired Trump so much that he gave a copy of his Purple Heart medal to the candidate who made a lighthearted joke about always wanting to receive the medal (an obvious absurdity since you have to be injured during military service to get it) was twisted to make the case Trump was a draft dodger who hates military families that have lost loved ones in wars.  Trump is at the same time a war monger and a cowards war dodger. Of course, there’s  Barack Obama, the Left’s anti-war president of all time. After being elected Obama didn’t bother to consult Congress before launching an illegal, ill-advised war against Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi. Now LIbya is an unholy mess, and the American people are getting refugees they do not want.

At the DNC according to the wrathful Khizr Khan Trump has sacrificed nothing, so he needs to shut up.

That is what it is all about, shutting up Trump.

Trump’s run-in with the sleazy immigration lawyer is still receiving media attention. The lie that Trump attacked Khan’s hero son who died in Iraq won’t die. It’s taken on a life of its own and hardened into fact in the minds of many.

Yet the media ignores the fact that Hillary Clinton let four men die in Benghazi, Libya, when U.S. facilities came under terrorist attack, and then lied to the surviving family members’ faces, blaming an anti-Islam YouTube video nobody saw. The media also avoids providing a body count for the Arab Spring that Clinton inflicted on North Africa and the Middle East. Trump gets creamed by the media no matter what he says or does.

After playfully tolerating an infant’s crying from the podium at a rally, Trump eventually asked the mother to remove the baby from an event. That’s what decent people do. It’s called politeness. At CNN’s website MoveOn mom Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner berates Trump, claiming he was mocking the mother. Trump doesn’t realize “that when he throws a baby out, the metaphorical bathwater can’t be ignored.” This garden-variety humorless left-wing feminist used the opportunity to blather on about equal pay, how women outnumber men in this country, and the need for crazy-expensive big government programs like paid family parental leave.

To the Left what Trump did is a grievous offense against civility and social norms, yet Clinton’s communistic blueprint It Takes A Village, calls for the state “to teach, train and raise children,” adding that “[p]arents have a secondary role.” Put Hillary in the White House and she’ll solve the problem of crying babies by terminating parental rights. After all, that’s what she says in her book.

Trump & Manafort are attacked for being pro Russia yet Clinton is much closer to Russia than Trump . She even cut bad deals with that country to hand over a big chunk of American uranium to the Kremlin.

Journalists are engaging in all this mischief because they are acutely aware that if Trump can somehow penetrate the massive propaganda force-field the mainstream media has erected around his campaign, the party is over. The thinking among the media and the Left – but I repeat myself – is that if they can keep strategically placing nasty little booby-traps in the undisciplined candidate’s path they can keep him off-message and floundering long enough to get would-be federal inmate Hillary Clinton across the finish line on Nov. 8.

trump promiseOn the other hand if Trump can reach voters with his tremendously popular message of law and order, immigration enforcement and border security, and mostly pro-growth economic policies, he wins – convincingly – in a year of political populism and anti-establishment anger.

Understanding Trump Leadership

When Tragedy hits, Good to have a Good Man at the Helm (Updated September 2017)

Top marks to Trump Team for working together to resolve this Harvey crisis. We see Ben Carson hard at repairing homes and providing shelter for those in need;
Rick Perry protecting our pipelines and keeping the gas pumping at the stations; and Mike Pence in the trenches with his wife comforting those hit by the storm.

harvey-damage

The recovery in Texas will be driven by the faith-based community as they exert what is best about Christian values of compassion and community and help to those in need.

“We’re watching a very, very thoughtful, well-orchestrated effort in the face of a massive, massive storm that Mother Nature has thrown the state of Texas.” said Rick Perry.

Team Trump decided to tap the oil reserve following the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, which normally carries a huge amount of gasoline between Houston and the East Coast. Rick Perry reassured the nation that the Colonial Pipeline outage is driven by limited gasoline supplies, not damage to the pipeline itself. Keeping the gas flowing is vital to the economic recovery. High prices at the pump would be counter-productive to the Harvey recovery.

What we are seeing is a supremely competent, well orchestrated response to a big, national disaster; amazing team effort and support from the Governor of Texas for the Trump relief efforts.

What may not be appreciated is the vital role our President is playing in making this all happen.  He has been criticized for not going to Houston and commiserating with those who have lost much.It was a correct call to stay HIGH and coordinate the relief effort.   It is my guess that he is on the phones pulling it together and fascinating some of the questions we hear he is asking. Trump is a builder and we are grateful to have his building expertise as he pulls this together. Believe me the next time a monster storm hits, the damage is going to be less. Trump thinks in futures. He shows his caring, by sacrificing his border wall and reaching out to Democrats to fund the recovery.

Shame on those who have criticized a President who is making it go right. The one thing to realize is that this president  always elects his decisions based on the greatest good.

The demonization continues even while the country reels from a natural disaster. Whatever Trump does they will find him wrong.  He cannot do anything right. They project their swamp-dwelling condition onto him.

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

election-2016

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

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

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

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

Our democratic process was designed to resolve BIG ideological differences. It has kept us away from civil war. It would have done so again were we not subverted and divided by evil influences.  Against a backdrop of the traditional conflict between Republican and Progressive ideas we have new challenges to the American Liberty & Prosperity. There is growing circumstantial evidence of infiltration of the SOROS/Obama/Hillary and the Progressive movement by the Muslim Brotherhood – an orchestrated world movement to change our culture and bring the western world to its knees, under Sharia Law.

We see this in:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

free ride

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

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

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

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

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

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

Has the Media lost its Way?

Once upon a time the Press was seen as the Fourth Estate (objectivity) 

jefferson-corrupt

Am I unique in that I expect the press to inform me honestly? Am I unique in that I expect the press to be champions of the first amendment?

Their propitiation to the SOROS/OBAMA/CLINTON camp reminds me of a rotten apple coated in treacle, distasteful.

If that were all but it is not, but now it is getting even worse. COERCION HAS ENTERED IN. Have we just survived a SOROS orchestrated coup? Lots of evidence that the Inauguration protests were orchestrated. Hello, riots on the border, and all around the world? That the tentacles of evil penetrate so far and so deep is of concern.

What has also concerned voters (but not the Press) is that if we don’t agree with the LIBERAL mindset, we can lose a job, be roughed up, (especially on college campuses) or even dead. Strong circumstantial evidence that alt-right investigative journalist & author, Roger Stone was poisoned. Celebs thinking of performing at Trump’s Inauguration are also getting death threats. Far too many death threats against our new President & VP. This is a president elected by the people.

Is this the old free America?

And saddest of all is that the PRESS IS FAILING TO CALL THEM OUT ON THIS.
And sadder even, Justice (CIA, FBI, DOJ) has been aboard, forwarding false political narratives.  What Americans found out in 2016 is that there was a  deliberate effort to divide. What Trump taught us is that we are all Americans. The MSM reporters need to wake up and see that the people have won America’s third crisis and that the Progressive Age is done.

Hello fellow Americans, we have far more in common one with another, than we are different. This is the message the Press should put out.  Then the Press should speak out LOUD & CLEAR to the rich and powerful telling them that it is a new age in America and the world, and henceforth, there will be no government without the consent of the people. 

If MSM wants to survive they should be getting all reporters to study the American Constitution.

For as the people discover Trump’s positive attributes, the Press slander is boomeranging back on them.

The LEFT has created a new moral code; they think if you hold a different viewpoint you are bad. This is un-american.

Before you were good if you worked hard, went to Church, raised a good family and got ahead. NO more. Now you are seen as bad  if you stand for something that challenges the status quo and/or the corrupt elites. The LEFT is trying to thrust a new moral code on America and no performer and no reporter and no student dare like or help the outsider. Like the kings of old “Might is Right.” and oppression has entered in.

This is America folks. We can agree to freely disagree, or dare we?

It is called MONOPOLY. Jimmy Carter recently said that we are ruled by global oligarchies and now the press is also owned.

owned

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

We still have a relatively free Social Media but for how long? King Obama gave away USA control of the Internet? I think Social Media has evolved too far for it to become monopolized by the global elite.

About Bad Banking
The seeds for the crash of 2008 were sown at the end of Bill Clinton’s watch and this was a turning point. An inept president, corrupt banks a corrupt narrative and corrupt authorities. Hillary denies this. What cannot be denied is that she is in bed with the big banks. 

The country is still reeling from the consequences of the 2008 banking crisis when the American taxpayer money was used to not only bail out inept and inefficient and corrupt American banks & investment houses, but also insult to injury, the American taxpayer even paid out the foreign, European banks. Did you know about this illegal stealing, American taxpayer? The news has been strangely silent.  The consequences are yet to hit us in inflation.

Politics should be about electing good leaders to represent us. Now a corrupt press works with bad political consultant’s to try to “smear” the candidates rather than to present an honest track record and/or ability.

Ben Carson admits politics is a dirty game, and that Trump, himself, is guilty. However, when Trump goes for an opponent, he has the ability to ferret out a genuine (often personal) weakness.  Trump will ONLY attack after he himself is first attacked; there is some honor there. Nor does he lie; he does not slide down into the rotten treacle of black propaganda.

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 racialist, Trump is anti-Muslim, these slurs are just not true; but being made true by being repeated over and over in an unworthy press-political attack.

Crooked people are drawn to a crooked leader and it seems the press is happy to go along.

The Clinton Cabal Campaign was about Power, not about improving conditions for ALL THE PEOPLE.  The Obama years was about using the idle poor to enrich the idle rich. That stops right now. No more benefits for the idle poor benefiting the idle rich as they continue to steal from the hardworking man in the middle. This is what the press should be investigating and reporting on. The press should be investigating and pulling this scam apart. If all the people in the one percent were truly productive it would be a great world. But that is not the way it is. More than half have earned their wealth by corruption and keep their wealth by corruption; i.e. by political favor. That stops with a Trump presidency.

It is good to differentiate between the idle rich and the productive rich. The productive rich make a true contribution to the greater good. The idle rich prey on the people. Into what class idle or productive, can we place Hillary?  She (with poor production record) fits the classic definition of “idle rich” Is she a freeloader? She left the White House poor (stealing the furniture) but is now worth 31.3 million dollars.

The connection between Obama, Hillary and Saul Alinsky should also be noted:  (Hillary’s thesis at University was done on the work of Saul Alinsky) .

Alinsky’s radical rules are a simplification of Lenin’s plan for conquest of the world. In Lenin’s writings “we the people” are seen as “Useful Idiots” to be scammed, manipulated and used.

01orwell

Here is Alinsky’s advice to the elite oligarchies and crooked politicians TO HELP THEM KEEP THEIR DIRTY AND UNFAIR PRIVILEGE.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people
  9. In the war of political PR, pick a target, freeze it, personalize and polarize it. This is what they succeeded in doing to Romney in 2012, and what the Hillary consultants are now trying to do to Donald Trump.

All past efforts to mis-define Trump have failed. It is a new day for Main Stream Media and I am not sure if all will survive the new presidency. They tried every which way to STOP him and failed, and now it is curving back in on them.

The Trump movement is too good, too big and too strong AND THE PEOPLE HAVE HIS BACK.

ben

Don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be anybody’s “useful idiot”

So wise up and get your political data from trusted sources, not the cowering media or crooked Hillary or phony Obama, both in love with Alinsky.

Let us agree to turn off our TVs until the media wises up, SET UP BETTER INTERNAL QUALITY CONTROLS, and the Press goes searching for the truth.

The International Bankers–famous quotes about international bankers

Trump University

. . .  from Pat Buchanan

justiceBefore the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge?

Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent.

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific?

Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge’s rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right.

On May 27, Curiel, at the request of The Washington Post, made public plaintiff accusations against Trump University — that the whole thing was a scam. The Post, which Bob Woodward tells us has 20 reporters digging for dirt in Trump’s past, had a field day.

And who is Curiel?

An appointee of President Obama, he has for years been associated with the La Raza Lawyers Association of San Diego, which supports pro-illegal immigrant organizations.

Set aside the folly of letting Clinton surrogates like the Post distract him from the message he should be delivering, what did Trump do to be smeared by a bipartisan media mob as a “racist”?

He attacked the independence of the judiciary, we are told.

But Presidents Jefferson and Jackson attacked the Supreme Court, and FDR, fed up with New Deal programs being struck down, tried to “pack the court” by raising the number of justices to 15 if necessary.

Abraham Lincoln leveled “that eminent tribunal” in his first inaugural, and once considered arresting Chief Justice Roger Taney.

The conservative movement was propelled by attacks on the Warren Court. In the ’50s and ’60s, “Impeach Earl Warren!” was plastered on billboards and bumper stickers all across God’s country.

The judiciary is independent, but that does not mean that federal judges are exempt from the same robust criticism as presidents or members of Congress.

Obama himself attacked the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address, with the justices sitting right in front of him.

But Trump’s real hanging offense was that he brought up the judge’s ancestry, as the son of Mexican immigrants, implying that he was something of a judicial version of Univision’s Jorge Ramos.
justice bias

Apparently, it is now not only politically incorrect, but, in Newt Gingrich’s term, “inexcusable,” to bring up the religious, racial or ethnic background of a judge, or suggest this might influence his actions on the bench.
But these things matter.

 

Does Newt think that when LBJ appointed Thurgood Marshall, ex-head of the NAACP, to the Supreme Court, he did not think Marshall would bring his unique experience as a black man and civil rights leader to the bench?

Surely, that was among the reasons Marshall was appointed.

When Obama named Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, a woman of Puerto Rican descent who went through college on affirmative action scholarships, did Obama think this would not influence her decision when it came to whether or not to abolish affirmative action?

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” Sotomayor said in a speech at Berkeley law school and in other forums.

Translation: Ethnicity matters, and my Latina background helps guide my decisions.

All of us are products of our family, faith, race and ethnic group. And the suggestion in these attacks on Trump that judges and justices always rise about such irrelevant considerations, and decide solely on the merits, is naive nonsense.

There are reasons why defense lawyers seek “changes of venue” and avoid the courtrooms of “hanging judges.”

When Obama reflexively called Sgt. Crowley “stupid” after Crowley’s 2009 encounter with that black professor at Harvard, and said of Trayvon Martin, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” was he not speaking as an African-American, as well as a president?

Pressed by John Dickerson on CBS, Trump said it’s “possible” a Muslim judge might be biased against him as well.

Another “inexcusable” outrage.

But does anyone think that if Obama appointed a Muslim to the Supreme Court, the LGBT community would not be demanding of all Democratic Senators that they receive assurances that the Muslim judge’s religious views on homosexuality would never affect his court decisions, before they voted to put him on the bench?

When Richard Nixon appointed Judge Clement Haynsworth to the Supreme Court, it was partly because he was a distinguished jurist of South Carolina ancestry. And the Democrats who tore Haynsworth to pieces did so because they feared he would not repudiate his Southern heritage and any and all ideas and beliefs associated with it.

To many liberals, all white Southern males are citizens under eternal suspicion of being racists.

The most depressing thing about this episode is to see Republicans rushing to stomp on Trump, to show the left how well they have mastered their liberal catechism.

 

Note from Grandma Thunder:

All men of good will MUST become aware of the danger of a porous border. Those seeking racial equality (a good thing) at the same time are unwilling to see that this is not about race, this is about control and legality.  Such politically correct politicians deny the danger to America of radical Islam, and the danger of  gang think (rape and violence and drugs) from South of our border. No not all Latinos are bad, nor ar all Muslims bad but until we are able to differentiate better, the only way to protect ourselves is to control the illegality, putting us all at risk.

powderkeg

Because of the escalating terrorism we have every right to demand checkpoints at both physical and financial borders around the USA.

This effort to take Trump down is betraying the better interests of all Americans, he is the one on our side.

As American citizens we should carefully look at what is right, what is wrong here. Then ask yourself what is right and what is wrong about America? Is this important in the light of all that has to be fixed in America or has this court case  become a nasty distraction from the big job at hand.

Lastly is it not crazy that the left and Main Steam Media is trying to make Trump guilty of fraud?

Recognize we are looking here at the right and wrongs of trading value for value.  Giving something for nothing can be seen as fraud. So often I find HRC & cronies attacking Trump on the very sins they themselves harbor: I ask you (in the light of fraud) to examine the FED,  the Clinton Foundation, and all of the Goldman Sucks investment advisers who are backing Hillary because she has promised Banking as Usual, and corrupt Politics as Usual. This court is trying to tear down the one man trying to bring back order and rule of law with intent to make America Great Again.

An honest judge would see the better interests of America and throw out this nasty case. Is it not sad that not everyone wants to climb out of poverty. In education you can take a horse to water but not force him to drink. If it is proven that even some of the students got the data, and got results, this case cannot be legally prosecuted.

Sorry to the students who felt cheated that they didn’t become the rich Donald Trump (with no smarts and no effort on their part)

The Right and the Left see money, business, and for that matter good and bad differently.  There is a different moral compass. This is defined beautifully in the works of Robert Kyosoki. Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

Some of the students (I hope) it will be proven, grabbed the data and climbed up.

Quote for the Week

I know people who are losing their jobs or their houses, and they blame technology or the economy or their boss.
Sadly they fail to realize that they might be the problem.

Why we cannot Trust Hillary with our Foreign Policy


Hillary Rejects ‘
America First’

By Patrick J. Buchanan

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

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

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

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

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

What is happening here?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Even then, she knew better.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Note from Grandma Thunder

Two things to think about regarding American Foreign Policy

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Hillary has a cozy, close relationship with Henry Kissinger.

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

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

Will the Debates influence the Election Outcome?

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

Genuine emotion, is it a factor in an election?

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

Our Future

    Our Future

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

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

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

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

Examine these mind blowing facts

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

 About Bad Lobbying:

corporate greed

About Bad Banking

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is the difference between these two candidates?

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

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

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

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

Obama's legacy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Hillary wins there will be more income inequality.

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

Has Ayn Rand Been Good for America?

America is on a tipping point.

money in 2016

Four political philosophies are fighting for ascendancy in 2016. For the last eight years King Obama has moved America closer to International Socialism with unconstitutional executive orders, expansion of the Federal Government and adding bureaucrats to his federal bureaucratic army. In addition there appears some support in high places of the rise of Islam and its efforts to infiltrate and dominate the western world   Obama’s foray into executive clout has spawned a strong reaction from the Tea Party and other conservative groups, who now strongly champion the constitution, free market capitalism and “balance of power”  and then there is the philosophy of Ayn Rand.

Ayn Rand is for those who believe they have the right and responsibility to shape their own destiny; it is a philosophy for all the rugged individuals that built America.

There is both good and bad in Ayn Rand.  Obama has called Ayn Rand’s philosophy too selfish, however selfishness, to her, means:

  • Follow reason, not faith or myth and seek to understand.
  • Work hard to achieve a life of purpose and productiveness.
  • Prosper by trading value for value.
  • In matters of government support free market capitalism.

In the 1960s when the Ayn Rand philosophy was sweeping the universities of the world, I went away to major in Psychology. I attended Psychology classes with a professor with shaky hands and a wobbly voice, not a good role model. I quickly found that a primary tenet of Psychology (which drives the thinking on the Left) is that the individual “is required” to sacrifice to the needs and interests of the majority. In order to do this man must adjust to his environment.

In its time the Ayn Rand philosophy was in a degree a reaction to the rise of Communism and Socialism. I left Psychology because I wanted to stand up and be counted. I had no special privilege but I decided I would always strive to contribute rather than be contributed to. This meant I would come out in support philosophies and political movements that kept man FREE; for without freedom there is no way to truly help others. Did Ayn Rand change me for the better? Yes she did.  .

So if Ayn Rand is mostly right, how did it all go wrong?

TBTF

It went wrong at the end of Clinton’s watch when Ayn Rand acolyte Alan Greenspan chose to listen to corrupt bankers and take out rational banking controls and reward the idle rich. This was gross incompetence and lead to the crash of 2008. Hillary says America is great already, but it is only great for government-paid workers.  For the rest of us there has been a demonstrable decline in the American prosperity.

Conservatives mostly agree with Ayn Rand that free market capitalism (trading value for value) is a good thing. Some do not see that this must be seen in the light of current cultural changes.

Since Ayn’s time there has been a digital revolution. Money and communication float across the world.  Unless we hold our banking and our physical and intellectual borders strong, we have no control over the crime and corruption that is leading to our decline.

LOL Corporations that came to power selling to Americans are now taking their jobs out of the country AND THEN TURNING AROUND TO STILL SELL FOREIGN-MADE GOODS TO AMERICANS. Is this right? Is this rational? I wish to point out that with their plants and factories, the big corporations also take all the secondary jobs; the childcare, the dry clearers, the restaurants, the janitors and all the good services that support the corporate worker.  Small business is the largest of all employers.

The other thing gone wrong with the idea of a free trade and capitalism is that the corrupt banks decided to collapse consumer and investment banking.  I have a big question for each reader, are you fine with having these banks take your money, and play with it on global markets? Are you fine with having corrupt, big banks pay you little or no interest for using your money while they are playing in one giant big banking casino? To add insult to injury they are also using your money to buy politicians and to corrupt our fine political process.

Free trade and free markets are being used intellectually to justify a failure to put in proper banking controls.  To this day the FED has still not been audited. It is easy to see idle citizens (welfare) living off the efforts of the able, and to say that this is immoral. Not many politicians funded by the idle rich have the integrity to see and come out and say that those bankers and investors that do not trade value for value in the financial world (the idle rich) are becoming a much bigger danger to America. It is the money corruption fighting to keep their dirty privilege that has brought this land to a tipping point.

Restore a healthy Balance of Power

Ayn Rand’s free market economy is a worthwhile ideal to strive for. We have a long history of immoral government intervention in the form of taxes, and price controls and moving our economy back in the direction of where value is traded for value can only increase our prosperity.  However we have to realize that we have to go from where we are to where we want to be. We should always strive for a free economy, but meanwhile make sure government makes only GOOD RULES and does not protect the idle poor or the rich under the false intellectual cloak of free trade and free markets.

To me the senior datum is JUSTICE which is how I judge my politicians. Good Justice is Reason. I am thinking that Ayn Rand would be in agreement. LOL can any citizen vote for a party that sees silly bathroom rules AS IMPORTANT?  What a great misuse of the high power of JUSTICE.

In 2016 JUSTICE should be INVESTIGATING restrictions (not necessarily to do away with them) but to make sure they do not choke out the economy, or reward monopoly and special interests. JUSTICE under King Obama has been most remiss in wearing this hat. It is also vital for JUSTICE to clarify our banking rules to make sure Value is actually traded for real Value. In a global world it is rational to use good rules to protect American workers and to protect American interests.

A great  lesson came from my school master father, which was to accept wisdom wherever I find it, and truth to tell, I sure found some great ideas when I read Ayn Rand.

But my Dad taught me never to get trapped in fixed ideas. I promised him I would always get all the facts, go out and observe, list out the pros and cons, AS THEY APPLIED TO THE SITUATION IN FRONT OF ME.

Could this perhaps be how Donald Trump operates?

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 Amazing Story of Iceland

Can we too, bring Prosperity back to America by following the Proven Example of Iceland?

What the banking sector doesn’t want known, is that there has been an economic recovery in Iceland BUT ONLY after they let their banks fail and prosecuted their more corrupt bankers. Is this why the press has been almost completely silent about Iceland?

bank on cracking iceBefore the crash of 2008, Iceland was one of the richest little countries in the world. In 2003, where before they had relied on fishing and tourism, they decided to privatize their banks and the little country became the latest “haven” for investing money, like the Cayman Islands. These Icelandic banks were able to attract online foreign investors (especially from England and Holland) because of few regulations and minimal costs. These accounts were called Icesave and soon they became the in-thing.

Unfortunately as more and more money flowed into the banks, those running the banks began to use this money to play the world markets. More money was racked up in debt than the money coming into the country. There was little oversight or control put in by Congress. It went sour in 2008 during the global financial crash and the top three banks went belly up. Please note: the money being used to play the markets was investor money and/or deposits that should have been held in trust by the banks.

The European shark-debtors moved in, demanding payment of three and a half million Euros, (each Icelander was to pay 100 euros a month for fifteen years at 5.5% interest). Riots and protests seemed just around the corner.

 What happened next was extraordinary!

Their president (Olafur Ragnar Grimsson) differentiated between the banks and the nation; he challenged the fond held banking belief that an entire nation should be taxed to pay off the private debts of a corrupt and failing banking institution. He argued that the problem was not just an “economic and financial challenge”, but a “profound social, political, and even judicial” problem. Of course things needed to be straightened out, but most of all, it was the banks needed the correction. He began to tackle the problems one at a time. (This went against “the prevailing economic orthodoxies of the American, European and IMF model) He began to handle the situation by first taking the decision to the people in a referendum; 93% of the people chose not to assume the bank’s debt.  In fact they voted three times, same result. (Handling it thus was a clever move as Iceland has a democratic rule that goes back to the Vikings. (930)

Supported by the people and a newly elected government, their President held a full and complete judicial investigation. The banks were nationalized, it is true there was inflation had to be contained and the krone was devalued. In this ethics investigation, the target was the banks, and not the country.  In Iceland these are seen as different things. The country is not the banks and the banks are not the country.

The IMF froze all Icelandic loans but Iceland held firm. It was a stressful time while the country unraveled their banking mess.

When the U.K. and Holland demanded money of the citizenry for English and Dutch Icesave accounts, again the people of Iceland held firm.  It was the bankrupt banks held this debt and not the country or its people. Their refusal sparked a major international incident. Iceland was threatened with international anti-terrorism legislation. Yet through all of this they held firm.  Finally the IMF came round and gave them a loan.

The new government launched a full civil and penal investigation into those responsible for the prior financial crisis of 2008. They are still going ahead in Iceland to indict 90 banker/investors for fraud. All three former chief executives of Iceland’s three big banks are facing criminal charges. Two ex CEOs have been incarcerated.

It didn’t end there. The government went ahead and drafted a new constitution, a constitution that would free its people from the exaggerated power of international finance and virtual money and an unbacked currency. This was a real exercise in democracy while the nation participated fully in the drafting of the new constitution via social media where comments and suggestions were encouraged. All men of good will in Iceland came together in a POWER OF ONE and with this working unity; they have prevailed and overcome the attack on their sovereignty, and resolved their economy.

Their president Olafur says, “I have never understood the argument — why a private bank or financial fund is somehow better for the well being and future of the economy than the industrial sector, the IT sector, the creative sector, or the manufacturing sector”. He blamed the huge growth of Iceland’s banking sector on the prevailing European banking philosophy and incompetent rating agencies.

Iceland1Now freed from the finance industry, Iceland relies not only on its cleaned up banking, but even more on its creative and intellectual capital, and its unique geographical situation.

It all seems to be working. They have paid off their IMF loans ahead of time.

Unemployment is down.  GDP is up and inflation has been brought under control.  The country is calm and happy.

Olafur says, “Europe is and should be more about democracy than about financial markets. Based with this choice, it was in the end, clear that I had to choose democracy.”

Could we adopt the Icelandic solution in America, putting democracy ahead of banking clout? Would this not go a long way to making America Great Again?

Quote for the Week

Fraud

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: “deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage”.  In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation.

Political Secrets

Corruption cannot survive if the light of day is shone on it 

unconstitutionalAs corruption breaks up and it breaks away, it is a noisy process.

For almost a century and especially in the new digital age big bad corporations have gamed the system. How do we fix this, we force in transparency.

Coercive government, religion or healthcare is WRONG.

Stealing from the working class of America to pay for an unfair corporate, banking, government or global privilege is WRONG  

America supports freedom of religion; good religions aim to enhance NOT to dominate. Justifying the use of force in religion (as in radical Islam & Sharia Law) is WRONG 

It is only when our laws enable such bully thinking that they, too become wrong.

There is much we do not know about the Deep State (Military Industrial Complex & the Intelligence Community) and we should.

Here are some questions we should be asking:

  1. Hurricane Irma & Harvey right after Trump exited the International Climate Accord exposes the geoengineering agenda of the technocrats.
  2. How many intelligence agencies and what are they up to? Are their duplicate functions. Do they serve America with integrity (Obama unmasking of Trump?)
  3. In the last year there has been a trail of dead or almost dead bodies. Is anybody investigating? (Scalia, Scalise,Seth Rich, & now the unfortunate son of Eric Bolling) It has been said the best way to die is to work for Hillary. We do not know the facts; why?

    Hard to understand Congress. Is the irrational thinking and irrational voting caused by corrupt donors and lobbyists?

    Sometimes the way Congress (or teh courts) react or votes makes absolutely no sense.Is somebody running a bully control system with threats of family violence, and blackmail? Is anybody investigating this? It won’t be the first time Edgar Hoover is famous for his little black book. But that was before the Internet.The swamp is deep, and ugly and un-American. We fight back by forcing those who seek to hide their evil actions, up into the light of day.

The biggest force for freedom is the Internet. The Internet has remained FREE because it has operated in the USA under the Bill of Rights. Here in the USA freedom of speech is guaranteed. This is not the case in most of the other countries in the world. Thanks to what has been a free and open Internet we have been able to make some inroads into DRAINING the DC swamp.  So we can COMFORTABLY SAY say that King Obama had no MORAL right to GIVE AWAY the control of the Internet as this truly rests with we the American people under the American constitution.

We the people .will not tolerate corruption WHEN WE KNOW

Two things drive change: the ideas of man and new technological breakthroughs. Make America Great Again may not seem to be a new idea; given what has been politically correct to think and say over the last 25 years has been the New World Order. Whether he wins or not, Donald Trump will be changing “Business as Usual” and “Banking as Usual”, and shaking up the corruption in America.

In living memory there have been three civilizing waves: the Agricultural, the Industrial and now the Digital-Electronic Wave. The changes we now experience are fast and furious and are akin to a gigantic wave that is descending on us.  It is because of this that we need new leaders, men of vision who can help us to see where we are going. It is in times like this that we need a simple formula to sort it all out. There is such a formula and it is this:

EVIL SURVIVES IN SECRECY, CORRUPTION CANNOT THRIVE WHEN THE LIGHT OF DAY IS SHONE ON IT.

It takes men of courage and honesty to stand firm and hold a true course as we let go of the old corrupt order. It is such men of courage that we need to seek out and support in this next election.

Imagine a powerful sea, with large waves breaking. The force of each new wave is met by the force of the prior wave receding. At the place where the two waves meet, their force is broken into a thousand swirling eddies. Is this not what our society is experiencing right now?.

It is not the first time two powerful civilizing waves have met and wreaked havoc on society. It was the force of the Industrial Revolution that undid the old agricultural order of Kings and the Aristocrats. The difference was that in those days it was easy to see unfair advantage and inevitable that justice and fair play would eventually overcome. The world was smaller but even then the changes brought by the new industrial wave fighting an entrenched corrupt agricultural order wreaked havoc on the world. The French Revolution was ugly.

As the Industrial wave now meets the Digital Wave, the Digital Revolution has taken us global.

Now the the conflict is both bigger and more subtle. This is because in the industrial order it is easy for bad men to hide because of the split between the consumer and the producer. Those taking advantage have learned to steal from both producer and consumer and they have perfected the art of hiding in the middle.  When men do not act to serve the greatest good, their activities MUST be conducted in SECRECY.

Those who have bad secrets are running scared and we can know them by their efforts to hide their acts and to curb transparency.

As the corrupt industrial and financial model crumbles, it is actually possible to create a better culture, maybe even a golden age. This may be hard to see as the water swirls around us and the banking and corporate and military and political powers fight to maintain an income inequality that will upend our culture.

To come through we are going to have to have a willingness to refresh our lives, to let go of the old and to embrace the new.  This is the decision that each voter faces in 2016. First and foremost we MUST get the Internet back under American control, and subject to constitutional protections. 

Sadly the Industrial Order could well be replaced by something far worse than what we now have, the signs of decline are already out there. We see the diabolic ideas of Saul Allinsky manifesting in America; having been secretly introduced to usurp our traditions of freedom.

What we are doing is riding the digital wave on the cusp, and it is almost ready to tip over.  We can ride and command this new electronic wave, keep it free and use it to create a far better system – or we can let it crash and engulf us.

We can fail to take action, fail to elect the right new leaders and we can let the electronics that drives this new wave be used by the entrenched establishment to undo our working system of government in the USA and replace it with a global governance driven by ugly secrets and dark money.

How do we fight back?

It all begins and ends with a STRONG AND COLLECTIVE demand for TRANSPARENCY.

01 transparancyThis is not something not a one of us should get reasonable about.

The truth is that we dare not fail to bring in positive reform in 2016, for if we do how will our world look?

  • The elites will continue to enjoy more and more opulence. There will be scarcity by design – all in our best interests, of course.
  • In a new super-regulated society we will find a high ratio of cops (AKA Security Officers) to every working man. They are there to protect us, of course.
  • We will begin to pay a Local Tax, a City Tax, a State Tax, a National Tax, a Federal Tax and a World Tax. This new tax is going to be introduced gradually but it will grow and grow. There will be no representation, of course.
  • The idle rich and the idle poor, both parasitic on society, will continue to collaborate to steal the fruits of the labor of the producers. There will be no fair exchange with producers of course.
  • There will be the appearance of democracy but the election process will be manipulated. There will be no freedom of course
  • The elites will be there by divine right and it will behoove us to support them, of course.
  • The one percent rich will grow richer and the ninety nine percent will grow poorer of course.
  • The free internet will become a distant memory of a better age.

The high cost of illegal immigration

This problem has yet to be solved. 

900 teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The following by an English teacher helps to explain one area that looms large over California’s educational crisis.

FROM A CALIFORNIA SCHOOL TEACHER – – –
“As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:

kid crying

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large Southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels. Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and a roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America

I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores ) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Americans, We need to wake up!

The problem here is a all about culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15, and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness” that we don’t have the will to put in proper control.

BUSINESS DOESN’T WANT TO PAY A DECENT WAGE.

CONSUMERS DON’T WANT EXPENSIVE PRODUCE.

GOVERNMENT WILL TELL YOU, “AMERICANS DON’T WANT THE JOBS.”

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.” Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

HE QUALIFIES FOR SECTION 8 HOUSING AND SUBSIDIZED RENT.

HE QUALIFIES FOR FOOD STAMPS.

HE QUALIFIES FOR FREE (NO DEDUCTIBLE), NO CO-PAY) HEALTH CARE.

HIS CHILDREN GET FREE BREAKFASTS AND LUNCHES AT SCHOOL.

HE REQUIRES BILINGUAL TEACHERS AND BOOKS.

HE QUALIFIES FOR RELIEF FROM HIGH ENERGY BILLS.

IF THEY ARE OR BECOME AGED, BLIND OR DISABLED, THEY QUALIFY FOR SSI.

ONCE QUALIFIED FOR SSI THEY CAN QUALIFY FOR MEDICARE.

TAXPAYERS PROVIDE SPANISH LANGUAGE SIGNS, BULLETINS AND PRINTED MATERIAL.

THEN ALSO WE NEED TO PAY FOR CLEAN-UP OF THE GRAFFITI AND THE TRASH CLEANUP.

HE AND HIS FAMILY RECEIVE THE EQUIVALENT OF $20.00 TO $30.00/HOUR IN BENEFITS.

WORKING AMERICANS ARE LUCKY TO HAVE $5.00 OR $6.00/HOUR LEFT AFTER PAYING ALL OF THEIR BILLS AND HIS.

CHEAP LABOR?  YEAH RIGHT!  WAKE UP PEOPLE!

                   Quote for the Week

Secure our borders first. Let us know and let us make sure the American people know that we’re taking care of the important business of dealing with the illegal immigration into this country. You cannot begin to address the concerns of the people who are already here unless and until you have made certain that no more are coming in behind them.

 

 

Expect the Best, but prepare for the Worst

Are banks buying politicians in an effort to keep an unfair privilege?
(See contributions to Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton)  Too many voters have their heads like ostriches in the sand.

money in 2016Seeing their darling on the left (Hillary) hit the skids and their favorite on the right (Jeb Bush) in sad decline, the reaction of the banking industry reminds me of a cat I once had.
She was placid, until one morning some dogs backed her into a corner. Then she lost it.

You only have to watch some of the Club for Growth negative ads to wonder if they have lost it.  Don’t they realize they are on the wrong side of history. 2016 is the year when the negative ads finally stop working. This 2016 electorate wants positive, STRONG solutions.

Now this cat, she bit and clawed and screeched and pounced and even although we saved her, she was never the same again.  She was irascible, unpredictable and mean. Possibly this had been her basic personality all along.

So the big question is, are the banking elites frightened that their unfair privilege is about to come to an end? Is this becoming a vital factor in Election 2016? Are the statists and now the conservative elites (crony capitalists)  frightened because they can’t buy Trump?  

There is a situation here that the next President will have to face, and it is going to take a very strong man (Trump or Cruz) to bring us through.

Hello! It is finally time to face the facts of this economy. 

No, it is not all doom and gloom, it is a situation that can still be fixed but only if we choose wisely in the next election. 

In a nutshell here is the situation:  In spite of a bottomless pit of FED money creation, the debt is unsustainable; the “created” income inequality is finally being seen and understood by voters and they are resenting the injustice.. Stop gap measures to settle out the protest  like food stamps are only making matters worse.  Past efforts by the banksters to pin the blame elsewhere are no longer working. On Twitter and Facebook we learn that with the crash of 2008, only the immediate danger was handled but ethics and correction and reorganization NEVER WENT IN. All the money printed by the FED to bail out the banks, and to “stimulate the economy” didn’t go to the people; it went right back to the banks. The biggest danger: derivatives  could be the next bubble to pop and make life mighty hard on main street.

inijustrice

We are going to have to wake up and realize that we need a STRONG and good president!. Please read the following:

” As my fellow Heritage colleague Norbert Michel and other scholars have thoroughly documented, the crash of 2008 was caused by government policies and regulatory failure, including easy money policies that flooded the markets with debt. Within a decade, these policies led to preposterous mortgage loans being issued, and massive over-leverage of government, companies, and households.

Now the Fed, the White House, and Congress are recreating the very same conditions for another financial bubble. If it pops, we could replay the same devastating effects as occurred during the first bubble in 1999 and 2000.

It is doing so in four ways:
First, the Dodd-Frank regulations are exacerbating one of the greatest consolidations of the banking industry since the Great Depression. Those indispensable small banks, like the one Jimmy Stewart operated in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” are disappearing from the American landscape.

This is largely because big government policies are slanting the system in favor of big banks. Because of this, we have created a competitive advantage that allows the sharks to swallow the minnows. Meanwhile, the “too big to fail” safety net to Bank of America, Citi, and other titans exacerbates this cost advantage of big banks and thus makes bailouts even more likely in the future.

Second, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are engaged in the same low down payment lending mania of 2004-07, and the Obama administration is on a Bush-like homeownership push. Fannie and Freddie are again guaranteeing mortgages with as little as 3 percent down payment. Have we learned nothing at all?

Third, the Fed refused to tighten its stance in September, and, hello, that easy money policy is how we got into the mess in 2000 and then in 2008. Wall Street cheered Janet Yellen’s decision to keep the cheap dollars flowing.

sliding banks

Finally, there is the saturation of debt. When the crisis hit in 2008, the national debt stood at a little under $10 trillion. Now we are over $18 trillion. Government is hopelessly over-leveraged, and the interest rate exposure is enormous. With each one-percentage-point rise in long-term rates, the servicing costs of the debt rises by about $1.8 trillion over ten years.

Fannie and Freddie are again guaranteeing mortgages with as little as 3 percent down payment. Have we learned nothing at all?

The point is that government and politicians have no learning curve. All of the conditions of financial wreckage are reappearing. The presidential candidates should start warning voters that Washington is rebuilding another financial house of cards”

Understanding Election 2016

Did the FBI Director just pull off a dirty-double justice BLUFF? 

justice bias

Thanks to Wikileaks the evidence of unethical Clinton behavior has been mounting.

Here is the short story: Clintons are guilty of working with Quatar and Saudi Arabia to arm ISIS in order to unstabilize Syria. This is an oil grab, and it has nothing whatever to do with democracy or the welfare of the Syrian people. There have been unbelievable atrocities and I predict bad consequences for America. NOTE WELL: The war in Syria like several wars before, WAS NEVER DECLARED BY CONGRESS.

What does Wiki tell us about this game playing out in Syria which illegal war Obama started and Hillary Clinton oversaw as Secretary of State. Somewhere in the middle of all of this and begging for an honest investigation is what appears to be a giant money laundering operation: the Clinton Foundation. Bribe money? Pay-to-Play? Fraud? NOTE: Quatar just gave Bill Clinton a Million Dollars for his birthday. What did SOS Hillary Clinton, give Quatar?

The Clinton Foundation doesn’t seem to be a real charity? Much money raised by the Foundation for Haiti after their disaster, yet none of the money reached the people.

Furthermore thanks to Wikileaks what we now know is:

  • Saudi Arabia was a prime mover in 9/11
  • The Obama/Clinton cabal are complicit in arming ISIS?

Go back to 2012: Apparently Ambassador Stevens didn’t like the shenanigans and had to go. Was the attack on and the failure to protect the ambassador a premeditated and planned event; a setup? (Wikileaks) It is also suspicious that Petraeus was gotten out of the  picture just before Obama’s election in 2012. Petraeus may not have been as compliant and political as Lynch & Comey?

My dear Americans this is not JUSTICE functioning as it should. Don’t understate the level of transgression: The alleged crimes are lying to FBI and the mishandling classified information. But  “Good Justice” would dig deeper. What we have is AN OMITTED INVESTIGATION INTO THE ILLEGAL WAR IN SYRIA.  At the bottom of this we may well find a Sherman Tank.

So the pertinent questions are:

  • WHY IS JUSTICE NOT DOING ITS JOB?
  • WHY IS THE PRESIDENT OFF-HAT REGARDING WARS?
  • WHY IS CONGRESS NOT DOING ITS JOB?
  • WHY IS THE ELECTORATE NOT HOLDING THE BELTWAY ACCOUNTABLE?

Donald Trump is running on a platform of DRAIN THE SWAMP (clean up the Beltway) and Wikileaks has been showing us that both Clinton, Comey and Loretta Lynch are deep in that stinky swamp. As Trump’s message begins to resonate with the electorate, our good friend PoliticalComey strikes.

Comey finds Clinton not guilty of any wrongdoing, finds her as innocent as virgin snow. 

Should Justice be Above Politics? We all know this to be true, so Democrat or Repulbicans how can we make this happen?

This flaw in Justice does not exist as it was designed in the constitution; but as it exists here and now where it is corruptly abused.

Power Corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.

Executive, Justice and Legislature

In an ideal world the AG should be an elected office and the Department of Justice would be FULLY ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE. 

Americans pay lip service to the idea of a separation of powers between the Executive, Justice and the Legislature, but I don’t think many understand it.

What we have is an Intelligence Department created by a President, reporting directly to the President. This is a collapse of Justice and the Executive.

What we now have is loyalist Power Czars hired and fired by the President; not ratified by the Senate. This is a collapse of Executive and Legislature. 

What we now have is a president bombing a sovereign nation without congressional authorization.  This is a collapse of the Executive and the Legislature. 

What we now have is a Secretary of State playing foot and loose and getting paid by foreign governments. This payola is specifically banned by the Constitution of the U.S.A.

What we have is a presidentail candidate lying to the FBI; no consequences; collusion between the candidate’s husband and the AG. This is a collapse of justice

What we have is an AG threatening to prosecute American citizens for doubting climate-change and for their anti-Islamic rhetoric; an extreme abuse of judicial power.  This is unconstitutional. 

What we have is an AG threatening to prosecute ‘right wing extremists’; LOL defined as someone owning a gun, who target practices. This is unconstitutional.

Then there is the subject of voter integrity. Several high court rulings have come down abolishing the demand for Voter ID at the polling booth called by the LEFT you won’t believe it, unconstitutional. Now the LEFT is suing the RIGHT for manning Exit Polls to ENSURE VOTING INTEGRITY; this they call (sic) voter intimidation,  I guess the illegals voting illegally are terified that they will be picked up at the polling booths and deported. This is an altered importance in justice. 

Sadly this is the form of government we now have. The good news is that there is nothing that cannot be fixed BY SIMPLY GETTING BACK IN THE PRINCIPLES OF OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENTS. We would need to make just one small change and this is to have the post of AG be an elected post, government in its all three branches would begin to operate for the greatest good and be accountable to the people; a trickle down effect. 

For the last eight years we have had a President autocratically imposing his view of life, his idea of what is right and wrong on the American Citizen supported by a mandate from a past election that was questionable at best. (With these new autocratic dictatorial powers that he has assumed how long will it be before we are forced to agree that any President has the right to tell us how we have to think, and feel and act; not too far from bringing the inquistion and thought police to the U.S.A. An Executive has no right to establish our moral code, or what is considered RIGHT and WRONG, UNDER LAW. This is why we have elected representatives so that our values filter up through a democratic process to become the law of the land.

And now hear this: As set up by TPP & TPIP (Trans Pacific Partnership)  this egregious Trade Deal fully gives away our right to constitutional justice. This legislation appoints justice tribunals to have the power to override our judges. If TPIP is passed during the lame duck session, finally JUSTICE will be dead in our land.

An unjust society is in no way a safe society. An unjust society is in no way an orderly society and an unjust society is never a prosperous society. To make America Great Again we have to restore constitutional justice.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. 

Some states have a far better system where the Attorney General is an elected office. Having an Attorney General elected by the people WOULD BRING  back the balance of power.

As people power filters down through the justice department to fix the FBI, CIA, DHS anti-trust laws and on &  on, could this not bring back TRUE justice in America? 
To eliminate strife clean up justice.

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, JUSTICE, honor, duty, mercy, hope
Winston Churchill

Does 2016 give us a Chance?

Dirty Tricks have been used to pass Bad Laws; can we stop this?

We have a sound system given us by the founders. And it works but if things don’t turn around in 2016 we could be losing it.

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

Could it be simpler? Simple is good.

What the corrupt establishment in Washington hasn’t quite realized is that it is a new day and the American citizen is coming to take his country back. What our elected officials haven’t realized is that the system is slipping when it begins to get complex.

Today we have much complexity and sadly this obfuscates corruption. Congress has been persuaded that they need to rely on experts to write the bills.  According to Hillsdale College we have a fourth branch of government, the bureaucrats that are not elected and it seems they have been taking over the show. LOL experts are using big, complicated legal jargon that even our elected representatives do not understand; is it any wonder they do not read the bills? Yet it is demanded of us that we follow these corrupt and complicated laws. This is legislation without representation. Do you ever wonder how and why we get bad laws?

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

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

Glass Steagall was repealed on Bill Clinton’s watch and it has been said that this and the irresponsible deregulation that occurred during the Clinton second term, sewed the seeds for the BIG CRASH of 2008. Robert E. Rubin and Mr. Summers, also culpable for our current economic woes, still maintain strong influence in the Hilary campaign.

TBTF

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

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

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

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

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

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

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

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

ObamaCare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So now that we know our representatives are not going to do the right thing, our first duty as a citizen is to learn more about the constitution.

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

Quote for the Week

“We are making up the rules as we go along.”

Alcee Hastings of the House Rules Committee during the ObamaCare bill process.

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.

satirical on corruption

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

How to Choose a President

by Griping Grandpa

Let’s get above the fray of the Presidential Debates and base our preferences, not on party lines, or on looks or likability, or even their rhetoric, but on attributes a good president should have. I have compiled a list of attributes I think most Americans would agree with as desirable in a President.

While for convenience I am using masculine pronouns in this post, these guidelines of course also apply to female candidates.

A good President:

  • Bases his decisions on the Constitution, his Conscience and the Greatest Good for the Nation and the World
  • Cannot be bought or intimidated into favoring or attacking a particular group or individual
  • Knows and effectively addresses the issues that are most important to the well-being of the Nation and the rest of the World
  • Has the wisdom, insight, honesty and integrity to make decisions that are best for the Nation and the World
  • Knows how to choose competent people to assist him, knows how to delegate to them and shows appreciation for their good work done, thus earning their loyalty
  • Is decisive and stands by his decisions, while ready to admit his mistakes if proven wrong
  • Is respectful of others, including his opponents; knowing that mud slinging is below the dignity of the Presidential Office; does not blame others for his own shortcomings
  • By his positive leadership and good example inspires the people
  • Is compassionate, considerate, just, fair and humble enough to listen in his dealings with others, thus earning the respect of his opponents
  • Lets the Congress and the Judiciary do their jobs; knows what the Federal Government’s and the President’s rights and duties are, and acts accordingly

MountRushmoreThis list by no means is all-inclusive. You can probably add a few attributes as well. While it may be unrealistic to expect any human being to pass on all of these points, this list can serve as a guideline in determining your choice of Presidential candidate. And of course vote when the time comes.

I look forward to hearing your feedback on this post. In future posts I will give my take on what is the most important issue to address and how to deal with it. See you next time.
