Understanding the “Rights” of Man

Socialism, Useful Idiots, and Saul Allinsky

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

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

Not quite that simple.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Socialism in America crept up on us before we knew.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding Justice(updated 5/25)

 Power Corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.

justice bias

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 had is an AG threatening to prosecute American citizens for doubting climate-change an extreme abuse of judicial power.  It is irrelevant whether climate change is real or not, the disagreement is protected under the first amandment of the constitution. 

Then there is the office of the AG prosecuting a baker because on religious grounds the baker chooses not to do business with LGBT.  This violates religious freedom and is unconstitutional.  (Good progress in the last eight years in letting gays marry – but this is an entirely different issue)

What we have had 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; a function of justice. Several court rulings have abolished Voter ID as a qualification to voting. So we have had 3 million illegal immigrants voting in this last election.  Of even deeper concern is the integrity of the voting machines. Evidence has been surfacing that many of these machines are untrustworthy, many owned by democratic donor George SOROS. Is it not the task of JUSTICE to verify these machines, for they are not set up right. Can Justice get this all fixed up so that the voter can once again trust his system? The good news is Judicial Watch is investigating this and suing states that do not clean up their act.

For the last year we have had the weirdest investigation into collusion between Trump & Russia. So far nothing has surfaced; an enormous amount of smoke but no fire.  In examining the evidence presented to us, two big departures.

  • Why is Putin being given horns?  There is no congressional declaration of war with Russia yet clearly he is being seen as the enemy.  My research shows on Putin that in this new century he nor Russia have harmed America.  Soros and Obama meddled in Ukraine and 95% of the citizens of Crimea chose to return to Russia. This was Russian territory. You can read Medvedek’s introspection on this issue on his Facebook page. Reading between the lines I did not get a dictator trying to increase Russian territory. Rather intent to stabilize the land after the collapse of communism.
    Then there are plus points as follows.

    • Putin has lifted Russia out of communism.
    • Putin has embraced Orthodox Christianity as the official Russian religion
    • He showed amazing restraint when Obama tried to push him into WW3
    • When America broke the cease fire he was blamed – why?
    • During the cease-fire teh Russians were out and hleping the Syrian children, cleaning up the mines and making things relatively safe again. There are videos of this.
    • In the bombed out buildings Russians arranged concerts, letting aesthetics lift the morale. I do not understand why talking to Russia is being viewed as a crime?

Conclusion : This is not an evil regime, Putin ruthless but not an evil man and he is beloved of his people. He is determined to draw his line in the sand and not be pushed over. On the other hand much evidence of the conflict between SOROS & Putin. Now SOROS is an evil man. Clear evidence that he meddled in the 2016 elections, has tried and failed to destroy Trump.

Yet American Justice is letting SOROS go free and trying to turn Putin into a demon.  You take way the basic assumption that Putin is bad and this whole Trump/Putin situation evaporates.

Then there is Fabrication & Phobia: MSM is demonstrably mounting a propaganda witch hunt against Trump. We see this in the lack of specifics in the million accusations. The MSM narratives are filled with generalities and unnamed sources.  They repeat the lie so often it seems they believe if the lie is said over and over, that it will be seen as true. e.g. Impeaching Trump who has committed no crime. Yet this theme has been playing in TV  for 6 to 8 weeks, with all news stations picking up the chant. Very clearly this assault is being orchestrated. Question: is the origin the SOROS/OBAMA shadow government? This is a very sophisticated misuse of propaganda perpetrated by a MSM conglomerate. Good justice is going to have to face up to and handle blatant efforts to destroy America.

There is something very WRONG with American Justice if congressional investigations and FBI investigations seem unable to cut through the noise and the fabrications and phobia has bee escalating.

I like ex Director Comey.  In his testimony I felt his love for the institutions he was leading and his sincere love for the country. With that much corruption to contend with in the Obama administration and Obama’s Justice he did not have an enviable job.  He should have recommended an HRC prosecution and jury trial. This he should have given to Loretta Lynch and only if she refused to act would it have been proper for him to go public.  Because he failed to document and call out both HIllary and Lynch on their justice & out-security crimes he took on the color of their tarnished moral compasses. He was fired for their condition and not his own because he failed to call them out of their crimes and also failed to enforce the guilt that was so clearly there. Because of his vacillations America lost trust in him.

Talking of trust, over the last four 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; that is not too far from bringing the inquisition 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.

Under Obama what we have had is an Intelligence Department created by a President, reporting directly to the President. This is a collapse of Justice and the Executive. In the Obama era his administration fostered political lies

Under Obama we have had created a special courts, in no way open to congressional oversight. This is unconstitutional. 

We have had Trade deals proposed that set up International justice tribunals that can override the Supreme Court. This takes away our sovereignty.

obama shredsus

What we have also had is loyalist Power Czars hired and fired by the President; none of whom were ratified by the Senate. This is a collapse of Executive and Legislature. 

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

What about the “Deep State” (embedded bureaucrats who answer only to the Obama special interests) Are these appointed specialists under his control or do they report to the Soros Shadow Government.
Where this impacts on America is that we know so little about them. Do they answer to an imperial president or does the president answer to them?  Where is the transparency that we would find in a good America. With an AG with integrity, as part of a new honest administration, will this integrity filter down to the FBI, the CIA, the DHS?  Can patriotism get clean again? Note: Obama set these up legally in a way to clock their records – Judicial Watch has been investigating this.

Another good question: Does this “deep state” serve or  benefit from International Socialism and Radical Islam, we do not know? What we do know is that we have witnessed these movements growing exponentially over the last eight years.

It is a tall order , I will agree. America would be a different place if teh new administration were to clean out the Justice swamp.

In the Obama administration we had a Secretary of State getting paid by foreign governments. This payola is specifically banned by the Constitution of the U.S.A. Then as the democratic candidate she also lied to the FBI and was allowed to get away with it – no justice there

Executive Clout Sadly for the last eight years we have had a very charming, charismatic president, but one who seems to think he is an elected king, is there not a big confusion there?  It seems he thinks he has had the power to wage secret war, and to spy on anyone and everyone, without any congressional oversight or public explanation. So I put this to you, does this descent into “might is right” not make our elections a mere (mighty expensive) circus? America was founded to get away from a corrupt king, are we going backwards?

And talking of going backwards, in an age where transparency is entirely possible, it broaches this scary question: what if  economic policy and foreign policy is determined rather by “the Deep State” than by a Democratic or our Republican Congress, President or Judiciary? Has the Deep State usurped the power, taken over the executive clout and have they been bypassing the consent of the governed making elections irrelevant? Are they waging illegal wars in our name. Are we complicit in this by not forcing the deep state out into the open?

Executive, Justice and LegislatureAn 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. 

The good news is that there is nothing that cannot be fixed BY SIMPLY GETTING BACK IN THE PRINCIPLES OF OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENTS.

The gradient step in this direction would be to once again EDUCATE the children and to EDUCATE the people on these principles so we all come to understand how it was that America once upon a time, long ago became truly good and truly great!

We are not just any nation, we are not just any people, we are Americans.

To eliminate strife clean up justice.

Understanding the Trump Phenomenon

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

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

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

election-2016

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

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

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

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

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

We see this in:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

free ride

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

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

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

reallegacywhytrump

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.

Examine these mind blowing facts and decide your support accordingly.

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.

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

Much Ado about Donald Trump (updated after the election)

 

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

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

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

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

Just to name a few:

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

No wonder there are a lot of unhappy people.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

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


corporate greed

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

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

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

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

 

 

character

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

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

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

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

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

Do your homework.

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

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

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

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

families at night

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

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

Quote for the Week. 

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

George Washington

An open letter to Donald Trump from Grandma Thunder

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

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

About how dirty this game is. . .

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

your chance to make America Great again

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

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

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

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

2016 is the year when these dirty tricks stop working.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Examine these mind blowing facts

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

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

Cutting a bribe

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

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

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

third party

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

graph showing Koch political organization

 Koch Political Organization; Americans for Prosperity

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

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

 Quote for the Week

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

 

Monkey Business in Politics

With a system so divided can we be sure there is somebody there vouching for the integrity of the voting? 

As we get closer to election day, Wikileaks dumps & investigations like Veritas Project show us that we may now have a more basic problem than income inequality or racial discrimination.

A little history:

pretendinvoter fraud doesn't exist.

Obama won the election of 2012 because his share of the Latino votes rose a full 4 points to 71% giving him a full 700,000 plus additional votes from Latinos. This was called a seismic shift in the voting, but the figures didn’t add up, so after the election I decided to do some research.

What got me going was when by sheer chance I happened onto a conversation of four old geyser veterans at the Veteran Hospital in Loma Linda. They swore (laughing so hard they were nearly falling off their chairs)

In 2012 the ELECTION was STOLEN.

“How so?” I asked

“It was bought with food stamps.”

“No?”

They were emphatic that Obama and a swarm of democratic volunteers on the ground paid for by Soros, were spreading the word that, ”You register to vote, vote for Obama and if he wins he will make you, and all your family legal and he may also even give you food stamps,”

“They are broadcasting the message in Spanish in Mexico,” said one gray-haired geyser

I was never able to absolutely prove this last but SLOWLY THE FACTS ARE COMING IN on this basic issue. In many cases like voting twice or assuming a false identity in order to commit voter fraud is a felony.

Using the Freedom of Information Act Judicial Watch has affirmed the food stamp message was in fact going out to Mexico  They have it in writing in Spanish.

In 2013 when I was doing this research there was much circumstantial evidence that the election of 2012 had had no moral oversight, but no hard core evidence that could stand up in a court of law so I dropped it.

This was the circumstantial evidence that I was able to verify.

Democratic benefactor George Soros had refused to fund Super PAC ads (of which he disapproved) but he was willing to give to a massive “boots on the ground” effort to get out the vote. You see, presidents are not only elected by the old, traditional PR war: “How they define themselves vs. how the opposition defines them” In fact, election G.W. Bush & election Obama 2012 were both won by GETTING OUT THE VOTE.

This is a good thing, but where it goes awry is when people not entitled to vote are indeed voting and influencing the result.

G.W. Bush used the Christian Right and the churches to corral the elderly church goers who would not normally turn out to vote. In this way he won.

Obama rounded up the Latino men and women, unable to understand the language or the process, and also unlikely to go to the polling booths had they not been taken there AND TOLD HOW TO VOTE. With no demand for voter ID there was no security these voters were indeed legal.

Easy to justify it for boots on the ground who felt Congress had cheated them by not passing the Gang of Eight legalization bill.  What a mess. It still doesn’t make Obama a legal president if he were elected by voters who were not legal. 
01 voterfraud obama

And here ARE SOME MORE FISHY FACTS that I uncovered in 2013:

  1. The Ohio Secretary of State has admitted that multiple Ohio counties have more registered voters than residents.
  2. Federal records show 160 counties in ten states have over 100 percent voter registration.
  3. Twelve Indiana counties have more registered voters than residents.
  4. It has been found that more than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet they still remain on the rolls, nation wide.
  5. There are 1.8 million dead citizens that are still on the voter roll
  6. A judge in Texas has just ruled (sic) that voter ID is discriminatory. Do the courts support rule of law? 
  7. The fact of the matter is that more than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state.I concluded then at best all I could say was monkey business.

The problem of voter fraud is actually easy to fix if our leaders and the people openly and honestly support a system free of corruption; the American system that gave us prosperity and freedom.

In the constitution each branch of government is given the power to protect itself from excess.  Our democracy is designed so that the people can root out corruption. It is only because UP TILL NOW we have been able to control the corruption that destroys the rest of the world.  Because UP TILL NOW  we have supported a good system, America has been rich in comparison to the rest of the world. But in 2016 there is a good chance these past checks and balances are going away. It is a good country and we built it. We built it because for the most part we had an honest system and honest leaders and rule of law. There is a reason why Mexico is a poor country, and America rich, same continent. The reasons lies in our system of checks and balances.  Legal Latinos are a great asset and they help to build America. I work side by side with many of them. This is not an ethnic problem, it is a problem in illegality and corruption. Turning it into an issue of discrimination is an abuse of our judicial process.

Is it too much to ask that each person voting should be required to produce proof of citizenship and a valid photo ID.  

A good 74% Americans support voter ID and even 71 % Latinos are in favor of voter ID. When Jerry Brown in California established the rule of no voting without ID it is suspicious that there was such a great deal of noise about  it. Jerry Brown’s ruling, however, doesn’t go far enough: all illegal immigrants are easily able to get a valid drivers licence or if they do not drive go to DMV for an Identity card. Please, what is the big deal? The past reason for our prosperity is our laws and our constitution. Let us not forget this

Soros was paying for this voter drive and it seems the boots on the ground just want it easy.  Were they paid by the voter? Too much smoke and mirrors. Definitely an area rife for an honest Congressional investigation.

Voters must prove they are legal before being allowed to vote. 

But it gets worse, much worse

As we advance to the election of 2016 evidence is surfacing that we may indeed have an even bigger problem. There is a right way and a wrong way to count votes with computers and hello, its just not being done right. On the ground investigations like VERITAS are proving that we cannot place trust in the counting machines, two thirds now owned by the untrustworthy Soros.

So where do we stand, Democrats and Republicans in 2016? It is important to all voters that we are able to trust the vote. It seems it has become suspect because voters are not required to produce a valid ID at the polling booth but also because the counting machines fail to produce an honorable audit trail.  Where does this leave us.  It leaves us with the realization that we have a lot to do to fix up America even before we try to make it great again. We have to restore the integrity of the system.

  • Our choice is “rule of law” OR the “might is right” arbitrary chaos that prevails in third worlds and the forced poverty and crime from down South
  • Our choice is to “fight for our system and heritage” for it is balance of power that polices corruption so that we can all go out and learn a trade and  get to work.
  • Our choice is to sit back, do nothing, accept the false lure of a politically correct, rigged system while we struggle from pay-check to paycheck while our prices go up and up as they always do in all socialistic countries.

Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evilI think not.
In this election we have to, have to demand voter ID but also verify the accuracy of the voting lists – we have to ensure each person voting is validly here in this country and is legal. I have compassion for the illegal immigrant situation and will fight to get it fair and inclusive & functional, but first lets honor our heritage and do things right.

Each voter MUST produce photo ID to show they are who they say they are. Plain & simple. This is all possible using computers to verify registration and lists.

Having the computers count the votes is efficient, BUT IN THE HANDS OF THOSE WITH NO MORAL COMPASS this can create a rigged result. Sadly the country won’t accept a rigged result.  The people have woken up. This could result in revolution, martial law and /or civil war.  We don’t want this.

The legal consequences to tampering with vote counting machines is not yet clearly spelled out (but should be)  Voter fraud knocks the very foundation of our system and culture.

There should be an independent body overseeing the process. It would only be possible if the post of AG were no longer politicized (appointed)  but we let the AG becomes an elected office. It would filter down into the DOJ and we could have a judicial anchor.

We can start with each voter being willing to offer up a valid ID at the polling booth.

Politics IOU

A World on the Tipping Point

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

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

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

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

Why is this pertinent at this time?

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

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

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

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

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

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

How we are controlled

In 2017 what is of concern is that:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

poplular-vote

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

The Meaning of the Midterm Elections

The GOP has the Day!   They have the Senate and Congress; the House is theirs!

Where to from Here.

We have just witnessed a major shift in power in Washington. This was a singular GOP achievement.  What was impressive was how they pulled together to pull it off. We even saw Governor Christie (not up for election at this time) go out to stump and raise a record $106 million for his fellow Republican Governors.

Here are the early results:

Election Results 2014

In numbers elected governors.

A fine job this midterm election, but not a done job.  Congress still has a low approval rating, and the attendance at the polls was a far cry from the 80% participation our founding fathers enjoyed in the early years.

There has always been much fanfare and big promises made during, or just after an election. Unfortunately what followed as the governing began, was little real or meaningful reform? Is this why we have this disenchantment with today’s politicians? They rarely keep their promises.

Could the reason be that unseasoned officials (on both sides of the aisle) are more intent on being right or raking in a buck, rather than in actually solving problems for us?. On the other hand they may face forces we know not of. Whatever Grandma still thinks this is the correct yardstick by which to measure their success or failure.

Have to look at compromise during the next two years.  To get anything done with Obama still at the helm is going to be difficult.  Obama has the veto power not to mention his drove off donkey-czars. All legislation sent up to his desk for signing will have to be cut and dried, and to embrace the better interests of ALL the people, the kind of legislation he cannot afford NOT to sign.

The Tea Party activists scream “no compromise” for they fear a socialist agenda, but at the other extreme, so do the corrupt vested interests who also use this “never compromise” refrain to impose an unconstitutional level of party discipline on the house internal vote; and all in order to keep their own unfair privilege.  In both cases intransigence is justified (laugh out loud) by calling it constitutional. I want to point out that the gentle art of compromise is very much a part of our political heritage and it has always been there right from the beginning. When a politician compromises it doesn’t necessarily mean he has abandoned his core values. Maybe he just has a supreme ability to find common ground or to make the other guy right (never wrong for that doesn’t work) while still holding to his own course.  Maybe he has the ability to see the other person’s needs and point of view. Maybe he knows how to be persuasive by first acknowledging the other. Only when he has gained some agreement will he put forward his own agenda. Compromise is a conversation.

Did you know that the Founding Fathers  actually rejected party politics and chose representative government over party caucuses. Grandma shares their view, is why hers is an independent voice.

Our constitution came into being because the founding fathers had mastered the art of persuasion and knew when and how to compromise. In fact the Constitutional Convention was a quarter of a year’s exercise in compromise. Yes they compromised on the smaller details, but they never strayed from the essential principles, those fundamentals that secure our liberty and prosperity. So they must have defined these core principles and understood them well. Grandma admires the sincerity of the Tea Party activists but she does see that some compromise is going to be needed to make the next two years work.

What should be avoided on both sides is polarity. Polarity is making self right and teh other guy wrong. Our Founding Father’s intended to include  everybody in the final outcome of this game that we call America, and once elected Grandma thinks our new leaders should have the same goal.  The constitution wasn’t a perfect solution by any means,  but this carefully crafted compromise has worked for us for a century or two;  once again in this last election.

So let’s take a look at our new leaders:

Mitch McConnell
McConnell has been the Minority Leader of the Senate since January 3, 2007.  He is  the second Kentuckian to lead his party in the Senate. He is also the longest serving U.S. Senator in Kentucky’s history.

Apparently he has always wanted to lead the Senate and this is his dream fulfilled. He  understands that the Senate is a place for open debate, intended by the founders to be a deliberative body; something Harry Reid didn’t understand. In the Obama administration, Reid was the fall guy. We go forward now with a newly naked Obama into the next two years.

McConnell  seems to know that open debate takes time and it seems he is willing to put the Senate to work and demand long hours. Hello! We might even get a hardworking Senate setting a good example and educating Congress in the value of good old fashioned, hard work.

An interesting fact: I doubt that McConnell could have pulled it off without the loyal support of Rand Paul.  Not only was there a major shift in power from Democrat to the GOP in this last election, it would also seem there was a subtle, albeit fragile shift within the party away from the old corrupt order, and towards the new idealists.

What I really like about the Senior Senator from Kentucky is how he is a committed team player. He even answers questions and acknowledges supporters on his Facebook page – now that is something even Rand Paul does not. In my mind as a public person, that makes him  special.

The way I see him is he is a seasoned politician with a big heart,  I think we may have truly lucked out to have him at the helm.

For now he has my full support but I am watching for I don’t yet know him, and I plead guilty that like many others I was taken in by Obama.

As he has done in his own state of Kentucky, I am thinking however that Mitch McConnell may just make it his first order of the day to break the log-jam and actually get something done!

Rand Paul
I think Rand Paul has the potential for greatness; as Times Magazine says, ” He is the most interesting man in politics today.” Paul sees the bigger picture, he is man of vision. He is dedicated to a true Republic.

He is the author of “The Tea Party goes to Washington” but has been pilloried by Tea Party members, especially those who hold to fixed positions.

Since 2011 he has served as the junior Senator in Kentucky and a great measure of his success is in how he has forged a strong relationship with Mitch McConnell, his senior Senator. Earlier he also created good relations with Mitt Romney.

I have seen him show respect, make friends as needed, laugh and enjoy life, yet somehow never to lose sight of his core position, which is all about liberty and integrity and prosperity.

I love how on his holiday he goes out to help the needy with his skill as an eye surgeon.

He and McConnell make a great team and I am predicting that they will do great things together.

Ted Cruz
He is the darling of the Tea Party – the Senator from Texas. For a time he and Paul were at odds, but were able to resolve their differences.

Cruz fears too much legislating during the lame duck session will get the GOP in trouble.

What I think he is saying is that the GOP establishment have certain pet projects they want to force through e.g. The Internet Sales Tax.  This is a favorite cause of the corporate GOP lobbyists who want to jack up taxes on millions of Mom and Pop Internet retailers. Cruz can see that this helps big business at the expense of the little guy, and will cause more unemployment. He opposes this. Grandma likes the way he thinks.  She hopes the old guard in the party will be humble enough to heed his warning

Cruz is the Senate loud boy, and there is no denying that he has “candy appeal” and force and charisma, and these alone could propel him up and into the White House.

Although the GOP has now proven they can work together towards a common goal, the party is still divided between the older guard and the new idealists. So let me say it: this will be McConnell’s BIG challenge.  Will he be able to make a real, strong unified party not just at election time, but while governing during the lame duck session.   If he pulls it off he will go down in history as one of our very great statesmen.

It won’t be easy. He is going to have to fight big money; he will have to get big banking in line; he will also have to fight some international challenges.  With Reid gone the “Audit the Fed” is likely to pass, and this first audit is going to open up a can of worms. These will come crawling out and taint not just the next two years while he is in office as the leader but if not handled adeptly, much, much longer.  Yet this audit is long overdue, and should not be put off.  Handle it right and Mitch McConnell  is going to have his place in the sun..

There is a lot of money and energy and influence (and arrogance) in the old corrupt industrial order and some of this money and political influence is even found coming in from monopolies outside our borders.  It is going to take strong men to steer a straight course for the next two years, and after that we are going to need a VERY strong President to bring us through. So what is the actual meaning of this midterm election? It simply means that the GOP has at least reached first base.

Transparency International defines corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.  There is still that in the old GOP guard, as there is in the old democratic order.

“The Sunlight Foundation reports three of the five biggest donors in 2014 are liberal billionaires. This does not take into account the unreported campaign cash, which the Center for Responsive Politics estimates is well over $100 million this year.  Thanks to the Supreme Court’s ruling in the 2010 Citizens United case, politically oriented nonprofits can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money without disclosing their finances to the Federal Election Commission.”

McConnell can expect that special  interests will fight to continue their unfair privilege. The success of the next two years will be measured in how well the GOP organizes and legislates to lift the party and the country out of the corruption of the old industrial order.

Preparing for the next President:
I endorse Rand Paul or president in 2016, because I look at how far he has come since entering the Senate in 2011.  We are going to need a president who can grow into the position

I like him because he never loses his fine principles (no mean skill)

He has demonstrated that he is no stranger to courage – remember  his filibuster on drones that altered the “Big Brother” conversation.

I like him for the very reason that he thinks big, includes everybody, has compassion, has excellent manners and has mastered the fine art of compromise.

So Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul and all the other fine, young republican Senators and Congressmen who have just had this big win, Grandma wishes you well.  You are a fine team, and you have now reached first base, no mean achievement. Now lets see if you can make a home run?

What of Hilary?

Grandma endorses Rand Paul but will she vote for him? Maybe yes and maybe no?

The big question is will our fine lady even run? Would you? If she runs there is every chance that she will win. Yet Grandma does not envy her, her decision.

She is likely to go up against Rand Paul (51)  Marc Rubio (43) or Ted Cruz (41) if she runs. She is 67 years old  and already 69 when she assumes office. Compared to them, although now a beautiful woman just past her prime,  she is likely to look seedy.

On the other hand, were she to run against the jowly Chris Christie she will shine out as the elegant and beautiful and wise woman that she has always been.  Then my choice gets simplified. I vote or Hilary and I vote for the establishment  I vote for Christie and I vote for the establishment. I won’t vote for the establishment so Grandma won’t vote at all.

A republican Congress, a Republican Senate and a Republican President could get a whole lot done, BUT ONLY  if the party were willing to police their own.  If not, the lovely lady has a very vital part to play, she will need to perform the valuable function of vetoing corrupt GOP legislation. Remember the bad Cheyney/Rove years? Was that not a bad time for independents and the nation? If the GOP old guard wins in their efforts to command the Republican party,  I would vote for Hilary.

So Grandma is carefully watching the new GOP Senate and its bigger little brother, Congress.

What she would really like to see is some legislation to stop commercial banks from investing our hard earned money. That is not their job. They are not investment banks. We give a bank our earnings trusting it to be safe with them. The job of a commercial bank is to take the deposits and invest it in their local community. It is the job of commercial banks to kick off local small business in their area, and in that way unemployment gets solved and the economy is given a boost. None of this Casino banking that is still destroying our nation; not for Grandma who understands how pernicious it is.

I will be watching to see if legislation like this comes forward before I cast my vote for Rand Paul (whom I like) rather than for Hilary.

Contrary to some predictions based on the demographics, I do think that the GOP will keep the House and the Senate after 2016. They have mounted a superb grassroots organization in the midterm elections. The only thing that could undo them is the conflict between the establishment and the liberty movement bursting out one more time; the other thing could undo them is if they fail to police corruption and not root out foreign influence.   Fail on either count and once again they will self destruct.

Hard choices: Is Hilary going to run? Toss a coin!

If she does she has a very good  chance of winning for she is supported on the left and also by many independents who like her courage and style.
However if she runs and becomes President she is going to have a really rough time before and after the election. It would be easier on a stronger and a younger man.

Grandma sees the outcome of the next election as actually Hilary’s call.

I actually think Hilary has the integrity to make he decision based on the greatest good.

She and Bill are doing great charity work; she is a grandma for heaven sakes. I would like to see her enjoy her golden years, but then this new House will have to prove themselves and do their job and a young man of courage and character will have to step up to the plate.
