Understanding Trump Leadership

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

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

harvey-damage

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

election-2016

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

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

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

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

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

We see this in:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Has the Media lost its Way?

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

jefferson-corrupt

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

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

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

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

Is this the old free America?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

owned

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

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

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

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

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

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

Definition of black propaganda – with lies and innuendo seeking to destroy another’s reputation.  Dr Ben has faulty memory, Trump is anti-women, Trump is racialist, Trump is anti-Muslim, these slurs are just not true; but being made true by being repeated over and over in an unworthy press-political attack.

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

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

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

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

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

01orwell

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

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

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

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

ben

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

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

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

The International Bankers–famous quotes about international bankers

Why we cannot Trust Hillary with our Foreign Policy


Hillary Rejects ‘
America First’

By Patrick J. Buchanan

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

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

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

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

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

What is happening here?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Even then, she knew better.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Note from Grandma Thunder

Two things to think about regarding American Foreign Policy

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Hillary has a cozy, close relationship with Henry Kissinger.

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

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

Open Letter to Jenny Beth Martin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

corporate greed

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

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

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

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

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

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

Political Lies – How they Serve the Corrupt

(June/July  2017)

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

Their long-term survival lies in following the truth.

Here is the elite agenda.

How we are controlled

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Russo-phobia

trump-russia

Informed Americans know that Russo-phobia is FAKE. Like Donald Trump, Putin is no golden boy, but he is different from those who came before him in Russia. He has seen through communism, knows it doesn’t work, he now supports orthodox Christianity and sovereign nations. Putin is funny about Russo-phobia. He raises an eyebrow and says, “Do you really think I, Putin, am able to influence your American elections? Are you not a Super Power? ” He makes a good point. It was the Obama administration’s job to secure the integrity of the voting. Clinton supporters should be mad at Obama, not Putin.  The voter fraud of 2012 & 2016 has now been proven by Judicial Watch and it had much to do with illegals voting, not much to do with Russia which is proving out to be a nothing-burger.

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

Sadly there has been bad blood between America and Russia for a long, long time and Putin has to be dealt with from a position of strength. Trump understands this. He is no pawn in Putin’s chess game.  Have to ask, is this FAKE NEWS narrative and the exaggerated Russo-phobia a ruse to make sure Putin & Trump NEVER reach detente? For I tell you, if they do, the global war games and the global banking scam-game is OVER.

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

shadow-gvt

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3-branches-of-govt

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

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

Quote for the Day

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

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

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.

Quote for the Week

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

Does 2016 give us a Chance?

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

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

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

Could it be simpler? Simple is good.

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

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

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

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

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

TBTF

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

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

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

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

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

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

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

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

ObamaCare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quote for the Week

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

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

The War on Women

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

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

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

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

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

How we are controlled

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

your chance to make America Great again

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

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


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

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

satirical on corruption

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

How to Choose a President

by Griping Grandpa

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

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

A good President:

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

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

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

Much Ado about Donald Trump (updated after the election)

 

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

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

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

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

Just to name a few:

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

No wonder there are a lot of unhappy people.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

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


corporate greed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do your homework.

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

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

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

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

families at night

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

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

Illegal Immigration 2015

 Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in USA and 17% of these are undocumented workers.

Latinos increasing their numbers

Illegal immigration has become a part in the power struggle between the Democrats and the GOP,  THERE IS MUCH RIGHT AND WRONG on both sides of the aisle which makes it difficult to reach a workable solution.

Legal is as Legal does 

We tend to think that anybody of Hispanic descent and living in America, is an immigrant (either legal or illegal) but the truth is that over half of the Latinos in America are natural-born Americans; that is born in America to parents who were themselves born in America. Such are fully legal.  Then there are also those born in America to illegal immigrants also pronounced legal, but this is questionable.

According to a paper written in 2005 by P.A. Madison, Former Research Fellow in Constitutional Studies such children would not be legal. Anchor babies are not constitutional. The lower courts have upheld that any child born on American soil is a citizen of the United States of America. (Fourteenth Amendment)  Madison presents contrary constitutional evidence citing Sen.Jacob M. Howard (MI) who framed the amendment in 1866 and clarified the difference between “jurisdiction” and “limits”.  Born under the jurisdiction is different from born on American soil (limits)  Children born to parents not subject to the jurisdiction of America because they are themselves foreigners are to also be declared foreigners and are not automatically accepted into the body of our citizenry. Common sense? You bet.

Birthright citizenship has not yet been challenged in the Supreme Court and when it is there could be a radical change to that graph above.

I have a question for you; would Latinos come to America given the enormous risk and cost of crossing the border illegally, were there no big advantages to coming?

California Benefits
Why are there more illegal immigrants in California?  Why do 49% of children born to undocumented workers reside in California?  California unlike other states provides a low-cost auto insurance program for unauthorized immigrants who as of January 2, 2014, are now finally able to get driver’s licenses.  Illegals in California are now also eligible for a DREAM loan program to the University of California and the California State University systems. As for minors who face deportation, they are granted 3 million each for legal representation in California. All paid for by the Taxpayer of course.

Food stamps
Illegal immigrants can get food stamps on behalf of their eligible kids in all states – without having to disclose their immigration status, according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch.   The food-stamps offer is spelled out in a Spanish language flyer provided by the United States Department of Agriculture to the Mexican Embassy.

Health Care
Most undocumented immigrants are uninsured. They are not officially eligible to participate in ObamaCare – given no subsidies to purchase health insurance. They also cannot sign up for Medicaid. Many do not seek medical treatment until it is urgent, putting a strain on hospital emergency services for which they are rarely able to pay. The Center for Immigration Studies puts the total for uninsured undocumented immigrants around $4.3 billion per year

However you should know that ObamaCare does not check the legal status of those applying for the benefit. Right now there is not much to stop illegals from signing up for ObamaCare and getting the benefits.

Education
2014 wiped out the provisions of Prop 187 adopted by California voters 20 years ago. The measure prohibited education, doctor visits, and other public services to undocumented workers and their children. Most of Prop 187 provisions were found to be unconstitutional. (Sic)

Conclusion

There are Legal Latinos who have risen to make big contributions to America, like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Even among the illegals we should not generalize, lots of good people. In 2013, the median length of residence for unauthorized immigrants in the United States was 13 years and 45% of these own their own home and pay property tax. 62 percent of undocumented immigrants have lived in the United States for 10 years or longer. That said, we cannot deny that we have a major situation here. If we point fingers we shouldn’t point at immigrants but rather at those in public office who have allowed this situation to develop and to continue.   We look at those officials running Sanctuary Cities and we have to take a good, hard look at the Courts.

Is it not time to frame an Illegal Immigration law that is both compassionate and fair and constitutional, a law where everybody wins? We have to reward production and hard work.  We have to control the lawless elements coming across our borders. We have to correct our courts. If we use our imagination, our innovation and our resources I am sure that there are solutions that we will all find workable.

Joke: If all else fails we can invade Mexico and give the country to California to fix up and straighten out. If done right the flow across the border will begin to go the other way. Mexico is a beautiful country.

What Our Constitution Is Based On

by Griping Grandpa

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” – Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence.

What the Founders are saying here is that we are all born free and that nobody is by birth the ruler over another. The Declaration of Independence says that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If we have these rights and we are born equal, that means that everyone else has these rights as well. Thus, with these rights comes the duty of observing these same rights in everyone else.

It’s a funny thing about rights. How do you get them? You either say you have a right – you assert it – or you are granted the right by a higher authority. But what if someone disagrees and denies that you have that right? Rights need to be protected, otherwise they will be lost. That is why we have a government. Thus, the job of government is to protect the rights of its people. And it is the job of the people to ensure that the government does its job.

Let’s assume that when the founders talked about all men having these rights, they also meant all women. But what about the slaves? They were men and women too, but they did not have their liberty. Slavery was a curse. Unfortunately, slavery existed in America long before the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. In the Southern States is was part of the fabric of society and could not be abolished overnight. In fact, it took a Civil War to accomplish that.

What is special about the Constitution is that it asserts that people have certain natural rights, granted to them, not by their government or their king, but by their Creator. A government exists only because the people decided it was a good idea to have one. The government isWeThePeopleSm there to serve the people, not the other way round. The Founders wanted to prevent the government from becoming too powerful by creating “checks and balances” and splitting it into three completely separate parts, the Legislative (Congress), the Judicial (the Courts) and the Executive (the President).

The Constitution was based on the principles mentioned in the Declaration of Independence and, with its amendments, was written to define the rights of the people and to protect them from too much government. However, no system is perfect and we must be vigilant that the federal government does not overstep its bounds. It is good to keep in mind the Tenth Amendment, The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Our duties then consist not only of defending our own rights and observing the rights of others, but also to elect the right people to represent us and to make sure they carry out their responsibilities while in office. Remember, the government is there to adhere to the Constitution and to protect everyone’s rights.

Job Description for a President

A Politician’s Privilege is to serve…
(An excerpt from Politics IOU)

jefferson-corrupt

I asked him what he thought of Presidents?

He looked up at me with his lazy smile and said, “Eight years ago when I almost ran for President I asked Kimre, that very same question.” His smile was little whimsical for, as we know, he didn’t run for office and his wife Kimre died of cancer shortly thereafter.

“And what did your first wife say?” I asked, not quite sure if I should press the question..

He said, “She reminded me of when the kids were small and how I handled them…

  • Senior datum: keep them safe.
  • Keep good order, there should be rules but make these easy for them to understand and to follow.
  • Teach them that work can be play, if it is done right.
  • Never take a toy away unless you have a better one to give.
  • Be willing to play Umpire, and remember to regulate their games so that they play fair.
  • Don’t allow anyone to bully, not others and not each other.
  • Reward them generously, but only when they contribute.
  • Reinforce the idea that they are a part of the family, of the town, and of the world.
  • Believe in their ability and their innate goodness, and turn them into team players.

He concluded by saying that any President should set a good example and inspire his people; leading them to a better and happier life.

He should use his position and his new power more wisely than any man he replaces.
