Understanding the 2017, Summer of Unrest

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

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

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

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

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

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

You will also find they intend to bring America down.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Examine these mind blowing facts.and then make your choice

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

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

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

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

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

shadow-gvt

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

So why all the noisy upset?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

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

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

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

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

We were fast losing “Consent of the Governed”

We could have lost America.

How False Narratives Lead to Violence

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

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

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

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

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

We love America and we put our country first.

Preamble:

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

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

 

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

election-2016

 

Yes it is true that our constitution at the time of its inception, was muddied by corrupt slave owners, yet contrary to partisan politics we have actually cleaned house, amended the constitution to include everybody and moved beyond bigotry.. The reason America became a Super Power is because our system of government IS UNIQUE; it is a brilliant system that rejects the “Might is Right” of the kings of old and is different from any other political constitution in the world. We allow our elected representative to govern ONLY with the consent of the governed. We are a nation rich in the heritage of LIBERTY.

America in 2016 rejected  “Might is Right” in favor of rule of law, balance of power, consent of the governed and a rich history of freedom.

In a Constitutional Republic the Executive is equal but not greater than Congress, equal but not greater than the Courts and in the final analysis all three are policed by the people.

We support the system (and our elected leaders) because that is who we are, American.

 

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

trumphornssepia

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

inijustrice2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trumps’ Travel Bans are fully Constitutional.

 

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

QUEEN hILLARY

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

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

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

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

 

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

businessdiversity

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

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

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

Let us examine the facts here:

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

Where he clashes with the  LEFT is that he expects all Americans to learn a trade, get a job, support their families and contribute to the nation. He expects Americans to follow the law. He sees all men as equal, provided they are legal and no man is more equal than others.

We have serious situation with immigration and refugees in America and it is a situation that was not of Trump’s making. There is much lawlessness South of the Border and we do not want it spilling into America. Crime from unvetted immigrants and refugees has become a problem to the safety of America.

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

More than half of illegal immigrants came here to escape poverty or crime in Mexico (and more recently they are coming from other Latin American countries)

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

The solution is not for us to accept these people in our country for they threaten our safety and are a welfare burden.  The sane and the compassionate solution is for America to teach Mexico how to control their drugs and crime and to show them how to put in a workable system of government.

Trump did not create the illegal problem, yet he has been willing to face it and handle it.

Congress makes the laws, the judges interpret the laws, and the President exists to enforce the laws. Trump may be the first president in a long time actually doing his job but sadly he is obstructed on every side.

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

happy-children

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

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

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

Understanding Comey

Is Comey the good guy?  

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

Restore a healthy Balance of Power

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(From Larouche Pac)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Comey: In the main it was not true.

With respect to the alleged Michael Flynn conversation:

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

Comey: Not in his words, no.

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

Comey: Again, those words are not an order.

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

Comey: I don’t as I sit here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Comment from Grandma Thunder

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

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

Quote for the Week 

 As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.
Martin Luther King Jr.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

bw-organizing

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

 

Basic Principles: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Importance of Alignment 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Power of Splitting Key Functions

 In doing so the organizer invariably strengthens both functions.

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

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

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

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

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

Here are some troublesome oligarchies/monopolies.

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

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

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

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

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

Office of the Vice President

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

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

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

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

 

Homeland Security 

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

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

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

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

 

Division of the Chief Organizing Officer 

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

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

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

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

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

 

 MAGA  Division (Office of the Chief of Staff) 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Expansion

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

(i.e. Good works well disseminated)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Deep State

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

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

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

The Russian Narrative

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

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

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

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

Until then, you can all STAND PROUD & TALL.

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

seuss

 

In conclusion:

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

Collective prayer is a powerful force.

So if you are voicing your objections about three months of Trump, I’m sorry if we can’t hear you because you said nothing before.

Some of us have been fighting gov’t abuse of power for decades.

The rest of you have been wallowing in welfare, and losing that, is that what is your real concern?

We messed up. We are complicit. We failed to take action and bring this evil man to justice.  Is there still time?

Understanding Healthcare

Why do we still have ObamaCare? 

obamacare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Point made?

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

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

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

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

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

Here are the Alllinsky rules.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So where do we go from here?

A Little HIstory:

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

Sadly this is not how it works in Washington.

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

Legislators need to get integrity in on how they vote.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

One bill, one subject

Enough time for legislators to read the bill

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

An up & down vote (60 majority as necessary)

Could anything be more simple?

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

A FEW PRACTICAL CONCERNS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding War and Peace

By Griping Grandpa

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

Dear Mr. President-elect,

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding “FAKE NEWS” & “Useful Idiots”

Are these UGLY protests orchestrated?

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

01orwell

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

owned

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

conspiracy

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

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

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

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

Understanding”Useful Idiots” and “Saul Allinsky”

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

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

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

Useful Idiot

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

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

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

Useful Idiots:

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

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

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

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

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

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

We chose America First

Will you, too?

Understanding Bad Legislation

Dirty Tricks have been used to pass Bad Laws

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not okay 

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

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

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

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

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

TBTF

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

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

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

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

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

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

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

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

ObamaCare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding the Internet

By Griping Grandpa

Who Owns The Internet?

The short answer is, nobody, but there is more to it than that.

President Obama has proposed certain changes that have received opposition; notably from Senator Ted Cruz.

Under the heading, “Don’t Let Obama Give Away the Internet”, Mr. Cruz states, “The Obama administration is pushing through a radical proposal to take control of Internet domains and instead give it to an international organization, ICANN, that includes 162 foreign countries. If that proposal goes through, countries like Russia, China, and Iran could be able to censor speech on the Internet, including here in the U.S. by blocking access to sites they don’t like.”

The Washington Times went as far as comparing Obama’s proposal, to the Panama Canal now being under Chinese control after the US relinquished ownership during the Carter administration.

internet

Dire warnings, indeed, but in politics things seldom are as they appear. To understand what is really going on, we need to understand, in broad terms, how the Internet works and how it is administered. Let’s dig a little further.

What Is ICANN And What Does It Do?

To clear up the acronym, ICANN stands for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. It is a California based non-profit corporation.

The way it works is explained on ICANN’s own website:

To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer – a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn’t have one global Internet.

ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit partnership of people from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique identifiers.

ICANN doesn’t control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn’t deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role of the Internet’s naming system, it does have an important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.

So, that’s it in a nutshell. Similar to letters in the mail that have “TO” and “FROM” addresses. ICANN could be compared roughly with an organization that assigns Zip Codes. It cannot, like Santa Claus, decide “who has been good or bad”. That’s not what they do.

So What’s The Big Deal?

Even though the Internet is not owned by anyone, there has to be a control point somewhere, to make sure that no duplicate addresses assigned to the computers on the Internet. That’s what ICANN does and it is doing a fine job.

Currently, the US Department of Commerce oversees ICANN’s operations and President Obama’s proposal is to relinquish that oversight and to let ICANN stand on its own. At first sight that sounds reasonable, because the Internet is international in nature and why not remove American involvement?

Not so fast, though. There are other things to consider.
1. The first caveat is, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Internet is working just fine – all countries have access to it and anyone can start a website (even if some governments restrict access to their people). If you start changing something that works well, the result usually is something that works not-so-well.

2. The Internet was conceived and implemented in America by Americans and, even though it is international and not owned by anyone, it is appropriate to have American oversight to ensure ICANN continues to do its job well and that the Internet stays free and unbiased.

3. ICANN is represented by members of different countries. Without oversight that organization might devolve into a bickering group that does not operate by consensus and does not get any constructive work done.

4. With ICANN on its own, a power vacuum may be created, where a less democratic entity steps in and makes a mess of the Internet.

5. Removing oversight would turn ICANN into a monopoly and, like Big Pharma, start charging exorbitant prices so that only the wealthy can afford their own websites.

6. Most important of all is Mr. X’s influence. As explained in an earlier post, Mr. X is not a single person, but a symbol representing individuals who ruthlessly pursue a goal of increasing their own great wealth and power, without regard for the welfare of others. At this time Mr. X pretty well has the traditional media under control – the newspapers, magazines, television and radio. The one big obstacle that stands in the way of total media control is the Internet. You can bet your bottom dollar that Mr. X is working to control the Internet as well.

Conclusion

My advice to Mr. Obama and the Congress is, “Don’t mess with the Internet! Don’t try to fix what isn’t broken!” Please pass on this message to your Congressmen and your friends.

“Oh, Wikipedia, with your tension between those who would share knowledge and those who would destroy it.”  – John Green

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.

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

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.

 

 

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.

Getting Out the Vote

Excerpt from “Politics IOU”

(Norman is the candidate for the Constitution Party
Ginger is his wife
Rith is his Campaign Manager. (Prior to joining the campaign she had been a Volunteer     Manager in a large hospital.)
Spider is the campaign’s volunteer coordinator)

Volunteer Calling Out

“Elections are won in many ways and a large factor is the ability to get out the vote,” said Norman, “I need a clever plan.”

Rith had her brilliant ideas in the early hours of the morning when she was lying in bed. As soon as it was light she called Ginger who promised to fund the plan, and then the candidates wife began to laugh. She was still laughing when they all met around the kitchen table to share the idea. “With more than a third of the electorate over sixty, Rith, I think this is a brilliant idea,” said Norman.

So Rith went ahead and called her favorite volunteer who was now living in a Senior Center together with Spider’s mother-in-law, the diminutive 60 year old Pearl. Listening to Rith explain the project, the little lady began to jump up and down in excitement. She asked Rith to hold on while she talked with Jay and Marjorie. Yes, they would do it, they were all gung-ho, boy were they gung-ho!

Volunteers calling

Spider had discovered that the voters had been bombarded with election messages and that most were blocking their calls. He was hoping this new plan would change when the word began to get around that cute little seniors were calling out for Norman. So he flew out to corral his mother-in-law and their friends and to get them started.   “Not an outing,” said Jay, President of the Auxiliary, to his fellow volunteers, coming into the lobby with two suitcases. “This is serious, political stuff.” He did a little jig. Are you in? Are you coming with me. “  Of course they were. They had been bored out of their mind.

Spider quickly turned them into a working team. He put them calling out. He was considerate and didn’t overtax them, they worked in comfortable shifts. If a volunteer failed to reach a voter he would have them leave this message. “Blessed are the children, for they shall inherit the national debt!”

Pearl on the phone

Voters were charmed by the novel messages and the phones began to ring and ring.  Spider was into creating games for them: If a senior could stay on the phone talking for half an hour, he would reward the volunteer with a chocolate ice cream cone! The volunteer who had most promises to go to the polling booths in a day would be rewarded with a special volunteer pin. The volunteer with the most pledges got to choose from a selection of kiddy-gifts on a table, and have Ginger send the gift out to a grandchild with a glorious card.

Jay loved chocolate ice cream and so he was their best “stay on the line” caller.

“Why am I calling you?” he would say, “I am calling because I have five grandchildren and they mean a lot to me. Do you have grandkids? Seven, now ain’t that something?” He would then share family anecdotes and precious kid moments. He was so interested that he bonded with every voter that he called. His four hairs would flop into his face as he warmed to his subject and as he moved into the home stretch he would ask, “Now Mrs. Bumble what do you think is the worst thing, I mean the very worst thing that we are leaving our grandkids?” The voter would answer up, “That’s right, that’s right, you are quite right, it is the national debt!” The voter would lament the bad politics, and say that nothing could be done about it. “There is something you can do, Mrs. Bumble,” he would say, “Are you planning to vote in the primaries?”

Occasionally, Pearl would beat him with the number of pledges, but not too often. Her specialty was getting return calls. “I have called you three times; sweet Maryanne and you haven’t returned my call. I am really, really worried about your grandkids!” “Thank you for calling back, Maryanne.” “How old am I? Oh I forget. I am not trying to be funny. Does this happen to you sometimes? The answer is in here somewhere, I just have to find it.” Spider knew his sweet mother-in-law knew her exact age to the very last minute, but she had reached a dodderer and she wanted to bond.

“Why do I do this calling out?” Comment from the voter. “Yes it is very important to me, very important. I don’t like the state of the world.” Long talk from the voter. “Sorry to interrupt you, I have it now; I am all of 73 years old.” Admiration from the voter. “Aren’t you also worried about your grandkids?” Answer from the voter. “You are quite right, it’s way out of control. Plug for Norman (following Spider’s script) and another voter was taking the pledge! “

old twoMost seniors in Shadow State went to the polling booths come polling day and they also took their dogs and their cats and their friends and families with them.

About Internet Freedom

(Do we really know what is in the FCC rules?
LIke ObamaCare it was drafted in secret.
Public Knowledge has the best overview.
Grandma is somewhat optimistic that this FCC is a move to create a more equitable playing field.That said, we negotiate frothy rapids as our society changes from the industrial model to the new digital model, founded on connecting to each other over the Internet.

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

Net-Neutrality Changes the Game Plan.

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

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

“Not at this time,” said the wannabe Oligarch

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

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

“You don’t have to tie him down?”

“Not if the gradient is right.”

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

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

“Why not?”

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

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

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

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

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

“Touche,” said the President smiling broadly.

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

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

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

“My point exactly.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Thank you Sir.”

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

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

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

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

“Not good,” said the President.

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

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

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

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

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

“No it didn’t happen.”

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

“What is the goal here?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“But?” asked Ratty.

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

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

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

How to tell a good Politician

I commend Senator Feinstein for her fine letters to her constituents.

I contrast these with the letters I get back from Kevin McCarthy which are a typical brush-off.  I did not vote for either in the last election but I shall be voting for Senator Feinstein in the future. If I now support her it is because of her quality communication and because I see from her answers that she truly understand the process. I also see from her answers that she is devoted to the greatest good.

Rumors are she is soon to retire and if true she is leaving a power position. I wish her well and thank her for her service to the nation.

May her successor demonstrate the same in depth leadership and the same integrity.

Dear Ms. Verhoeff:

Thank you for contacting my office to express your concerns with the process by which Congress drafts legislation. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

My staff and I carefully draft each piece of legislation that I introduce in the Senate. As you may know, Members of Congress may consult with the Office of the Legislative Counsel when writing bills. The Legislative Counsel of the Senate is appointed by the President pro tempore of the Senate and is required to remain impartial on issues of legislative policy. The office serves to provide advice on constitutional, legal, and technical problems in statues, proposed legislation, and explanatory statements accompanying proposed legislation.

I take a number of factors into consideration before drafting legislation, including the best interest of our State and the Nation as a whole, constituent input, and recommendations from my staff. You can be assured that I perform my due diligence before introducing a bill.

Again, thank you for writing. If you have further questions or comments, please contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841. Best regards.


Sincerely yours,

Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator

The Digital Revolution

Two things drive change: the ideas of man and tech breakthroughs.

main global

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 takes men of courage to stand firm and hold a true course as we let go of the old corrupt order. We need new honest leaders to provide the balance that is essential while we negotiate what are profound changes.

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 go in. 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.

DIGITAL WAVEAs the Industrial wave now meets the Digital Wave, 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.

How do we track corruption – we go looking for the secrets.

The New World Wide Web was created free. Information is now widely available to everybody on almost every subject. The web empowers the individual, connects people and groups, but most of all it mandates transparency. Those who have bad secrets are running scared and we can know them by their efforts to curb the Freedom of Information Act and the freedom of the World Wide Web.

On a scale of one to ten any politician messing with the freedom of the Internet is INTO MONKEY BUSINESS and is a risk of ten or higher.  They will seek to hide their evil behind a screen of smoke and mirrors but keep it simple: know them by their efforts to curb the Internet. Such politicians are not to be trusted and if an audit is done of their actions and policies you will FIND BETRAYAL AFTER TRUST.

In 1913 a financial cabal persuaded Congress that they did not know enough about money, and nor did we the people. They suggested they would be better at the helm. Our economy is in confusion and disarray with too much debt and too much unemployment with the Federal Reserve to this day, still operating in an unacceptable secrecy. 

As the corrupt industrial and financial model crumbles, it is actually possible to replace the corrupt industrial order with 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 what has been an unfair and CORRUPT privilege. Yet we still have a chance to fix the world, a chance to keep our freedom and to get back our prosperity. This will only happen if we rise to the challenge of this election and choose good leaders. Judge your leaders by their transparency.

For those who have looked to the gravy train as a solution to survival in the digital age, they will have to find a job.  And Government will have to discover that their main function is putting America back to work.

Know that the Industrial Order could well be replaced by something far worse than what we now have, the signs of decline are out there. 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 those still in charge to spy on us, to force and control us and to trap us and knock us back into a new dark age.

Mr. X at WorkHow do we fight back? Collectively we DEMAND transparency.   Only then can we trace the puppet masters. George Soros is being exposed as Clinton’s secret handler and we will find more bad manipulators for there is not only one.

Exposing the corruption was never before considered politically correct, some of what we are discovering in Wikileaks was previously called “WHACKO” or “CONSPIRACY” Now we are finding out the truth, and it is being shown to us all in writing as we peal away the email secrets.

The truth is that we dare not fail to bring in positive reform, 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.

Independence Day


Grandpa asks, “What is independence?”

There is something very wrong with the modern form of government. Demonstrating this is government’s inability to prevent wars, take effective steps in reducing unemployment, maintaining a stable currency, protecting individual liberties, or providing equal justice for all. In fact, there is hardly any area in which government succeeds, except in its own expansion and the oppression of its people. That is not how it is supposed to go. Government is supposed to serve the people, not the other way round.

How could things go so far wrong? Of course we can say that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. There is also the weakness of democracy that people tend to vote for their own benefit, rather than the greatest good. Very true, but there is something more fundamental underlying the way things are structured.

America – In Loving Memory

Modern government consists of three main branches: legislative (law-making), judicial (law-interpreting) and executive (law-enforcing). What’s wrong with this system? It’s the accent on laws!

Laws are basically rules that tell you what to do and what not to do. They are rules that limit your independence. A preponderance of laws, too many laws limit freedom, and that is what has gone wrong. In the days of Moses there were just ten laws, instead of the thousands we have today, and people had trouble obeying even them!

There is the maxim that ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking the law, but even lawyers don’t know all the laws and courts are needed to interpret the laws. What chances do individuals have of not inadvertently breaking any laws?

Why this concentration on laws?  It must be that the purpose of government is not to serve the people, but to control them. And so it is. This is sad, but true. That’s not to say that all politicians are crooked, but that well-meaning politicians will have a hard time protecting our freedoms, because the system is rigged against them.

We yearn for freedom

 Set Us Free Again

For a society to function properly, some ground rules are of course necessary, but the vast majority of people are basically decent folks who will do the right thing if encouraged to do so. And the society will continue to function well if the few anti-social and criminal persons are locked up, so they can’t continue to do damage.

How to fix this faulty system? In America we have a federal government, a state government in each of the fifty states, as well as county and city governments. Instead of having all these governments trying to have us all march to the same tune, it would be a good idea if the federal government just concerned itself with having good relations with the rest of the world and that the 50 states “play nice together.” That is, to settle disputes between the states and to ensure that people can travel freely from state to state, and that each state obeys the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Within these constraints, each state should be free to make its own rules, which, in turn, should deal mainly with how to interact with the federal government and with its county governments. There should be no duplication of function between the various levels of government

Only the lowest level of government should deal directly with the individuals in its area. That way, if people don’t like the officials who represent them, they can replace them quite easily. Having governments based on these principles will greatly reduce their size and cost. In fact, there would be no need for professional politicians. Congress could be made up of volunteers who meet a few times a year to scrap outdated laws and to tweak a few laws that need to be revised.

What are the chances of replacing the current broken system with a new, more effective one? Not great, but then, the pen is mightier than the sword and if enough people start thinking in the right direction, the world can become a better place.

 Happy Independence Day!
