Seven Fake Narratives; Seven Deadly Sins

 False Narratives Trap us, it is the Truth that sets us Free. 

 inijustrice

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

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

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

You can often recognize the propaganda because it is riddled with generalities. Clinton is crooked, Trump is racialist, Trump is anti-women, Ben Carson is delusional.

Truth is specific. It will supply the who, when, where, why and how.  Good leaders embrace specifics when they speak to the people.

 

False Narrative #1: America is a Democracy – False
America is a Constitutional Republic

3-branches-of-govt

At the time of its writing our constitution was muddied by corrupt slave owners, yet contrary to partisan politics we have actually cleaned house, amended the constitution to include all and 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 #2  Russia caused Hillary to lose the election – False

America chose Trump because he promised to restore our Constitutional Republic (from which Hillary & Obama had strayed)

Russophobia is largely fabrication, wishful thinking.  

Let’s look at this Russian narrative IN THE LIGHT OF WHAT IS GOOD FOR AMERICA AND FOR THE WORLD.

trump-russiaLow information voters NEED AN ENEMY and they and their global handlers have selected Putin to be the scapegoat. Is it actually true that Putin is the bad man?

Left leaning voters blame Putin for the Wikileaks dump that exposed the Clinton, Soros and DNC corruptions.  Wikileaks denied the data came from Russia. Putin has denied that he played any part in this data dump. Know that disinformation in the Intel community is routine; it is a confused area as it seems hackers are able to leave false footprints and so far (MSM propaganda notwithstanding) no investigation has actually elicited any hard facts. Until Assange is willing to reveal his sources the data dump that proved Hillary and the DNC crooked could have been Seth Rich (disgruntled DNC operative), SOROS (Open Society Foundations)  it could even be China or EU or any rogue Russian hacker out to make a buck. Fake Media and the LEFT accuse Putin of lying.  The truth is WE JUST DON’T KNOW.

Until we have real facts it is not a nice thing OR A WISE THING to accuse the leader of a powerful nation of lying, done nothing to harm America in this century. Putin has signaled he wishes to work with Trump. Is this not a good thing?

Here are some facts we do know: We know is that Clinton and Podesta were woefully inept at protecting their computer data;  Podesta used a password called “password” no security there, and we all know of Clinton’s woeful technical irresponsibility (if not criminality) on her own private server.

Even if there were any collusion between Russia and Trump Team ( both wary of the global agenda) the IMPORTANCE HERE IN THE WIKILEAKS DUMP IS THE CORRUPTION not the leaks.  Why are the Democrats so upset? Is there something else bad we still need to find out about them?

People in glass houses should not throw stones.

Again. it is a far-fetched assumption that the Wikileaks dump even caused Hillary to lose. It proved her crooked, true, but that didn’t win the election. When Trump Team switched from attacking her as “crooked” Hillary to attacking her as WEAK it was a game changer and Russia had nothing to do with that. .

America is experiencing its third crisis – the assault on God & traditional American values. The attack comes from permissive progressive thinking sweeping the globe.The Trump campaign identified the essense to this kind of thinking which is “might is right”.   A lot of Hillary’s followers didn’t mind that she was crooked, they were also swamp dwellers, but for those who value “might is right” what the Trump Team had to do was to make their candidate look weak and feeble. This they did,  oh so successfully, this they did, and the rest is history.. I repeat Russia had nothing whatsoever to do with this.

(This never-ending #russophobia smacks of being a classic third party action with intent to lead to war. Could it be that maybe both America (under Trump) and Russia (under Putin) are both innocent?

It should also be noted that it was the Obama administration’s job to secure the integrity of the election from domestic and/or foreign interference.

If we look at the bigger picture (and at the history) can we see that we are mad at Putin and Putin is mad at us because of Crimea and the Ukraine. If we take these Eastern European nations out of the equation could Americans perhaps see that Putin is a benevolent dictator? Lot of evidence that he loves his people and his country and that Russia under Putin is far better for Russians than any prior Russian leader before in history. It is with good reason Putin enjoys such strong support in his own country.

(I personally re-evaluated Russia when I found stories on social media where Russian boots on the ground were cleaning out the mines making the space safe for children in Syria.  I also heard of Russians holding concerts in bombed out buildings, using aesthetics to lift the morale after the horrors of war.  Didn’t see Americans doing that, didn’t see Syrians doing that and definitely didn’t see anybody from Saudi Arabia trying to improve conditions on the ground. Rough, I mean rough what America, Saudi Arabia and the world has done to Syria).

Like Donald Trump, it is true that Putin is no golden boy, but we need to realize that he has seen through communism, knows it doesn’t work, likes orthodox Christianity for its morality, and supports the doctrine of sovereign nations. He doesn’t like global but then nor does Trump or his supporters. If you listen to the Putin interviews by Oliver Stone you will also hear how deeply he feels about preventing a nuclear holocaust, something that could end planet Earth.

Definitely full investigation of what actually happened in Ukraine and Crimea should be part of Mueller’s Russia investigation. The investigator should look at constitutional and unconstitutional American activity. We the people want to know what John McCain and Lindsay Graham were doing in Ukraine?

Lot of contrary data regarding Russia: So the informed voter quietly collects his facts and waits and prays for it to all unravel. The informed voter also asks the salient question, who profit from regime change in the middle East? And who profits from regime change in Eastern Europe? Does the American voter support regime change as a key component to how we want of our elected leaders to conduct our foreign policy? Is all this global imperialism constitutional?

We see that Politicians like John McCain (bought and paid by SOROS) and the LEFT (bought and paid by SOROS) have Putin firmly in their cross hairs.. Differentiate between the New World Order and America for they are not the same thing. I think Putin sees this and is this why he supports Trump?

Painting Putin as enemy number one, without proof or evidence of harmful actions to Americans or America, could lead to WW3 and that is not good for any world citizen.

As to “collusion” pretty shady area and do we even want to try and control this?  Recent elections have been nasty and 2016 was the most brutal of all. In the election of 2016 proven evidence of foreign collusion via the Clinton Foundation.  Not a good idea to go there, not a good idea on either side of the aisle, no profit for it doesn’t improve conditions.

Trump may lose support in 2018 or 2020 if it were found he or his team members were doing business with a foreign government, however I think Americans take this with a grain of salt as they do Obama’s wire-tapping. Does Obama have more legal liability than the Trump crowd, probably? The question is how does America see it? I think we are all getting bored.

Regarding Trump colluding with Putin or Russia:

doomed

“At the moment, there simply aren’t enough facts to make any kind of judgment regarding anyone’s criminal conduct. So for the time being, we suspect that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is more interested in assembling facts than in reaching any conclusions regarding what sort of collusion or coordination would be actionable under what sort of law.”

The only way swamp dwellers can impeach Trump would be in a corrupted atmosphere of justice, which includes omitted investigation of the BIGGER PICTURE. (with all relevant players)

The big danger is third party interference not in the fact of the election but in our press and the deep state with proven demonization. NOw that would be true INTERFERENCE IN THE ELECTION.  We the people want to keep THE PRESIDENT WE ELECTED, we also want to keep the process. If the Left wants to do away with Trump, they should challnege him in honest elections in 2020.

 

False Narrative #3 The GOP is bad, & Trump has grown horns – false
This false narrative is being used to justify violence and criminality.

demontrump

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. Such are called “useful idiots” for they are used by political consultants and the international elites.

This all  began when Karl Rove encouraged by H.W Bush invented the NEGATIVE ATTACK AD. Way back in Bush-Daddy-Days (1993-1998) he 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: 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 work. Television and Main Stream Media with a collective control message, is dying and people have caught on to the Political Lies. 

Over the last eight years the idle rich have used the idle poor to steal from hardworking men in the middle. In 2016 the “Forgotten-Middle-Man” found a new champion and a movement was born.

Low information voters get their information, not through study, not through research on the web but from Main Stream Media. Main Stream Media is by nature oppositional, it is in their genes,  and so as a result almost everything the LEFT believes is also negative.

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 their opponents. They want to destroy America.  The Islamic Caliphate also wants to destroy America.

How can Congress help? There is a simple fix and with their very lives now threatened will Congress have the 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.  In some countries it is illegal to air Big Pharma ads. Does this not endanger our doctors?

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

 
False Narrative #4
American Citizens are “ENTITLED” to free healthcare, food stamps and free education – false

This socialist narrative was spread in the last election and taken to be true by some low information voters. In Socialism it is left to the State to distribute the wealth as they see fit.  They want to use high taxes to even the playing field. Entitlement requires “the force of government” to take from some and give to others.

Historically Socialism has led to anarchy which is followed by a dictator. The difference between Socialism and Marxism is that one is mild mannered and covert, while the other is overt and nasty. Antifa is a Marxist movement.

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

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

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

Socialism in America crept up on us before we knew it. 

It is flourishing in our universities and maybe this is why. Central to the fake narrative is a confusion regarding “rights” as defined in the American Declaration of Independence and “rights” as codified in the United Nations Bill of Rights. These “rights” mean different things.

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

Jefferson talked about natural rights, rights inherent in human nature and there was a reason for this. The King’s England justified their form of government on heredity, class, race, and wealth. To give a higher validity to his revolutionary argument than “the divine right of kings” Jefferson claimed God-given rights or natural rights for America, God being higher than a mighty king.

One can spot those who wish to destroy our country by their godlessness and/or attack on the spirit or on religion.

It is important to differentiate between the American Constitutional “rights” and the “rights” as listed in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a stable datum for the European Union.

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

What they miss is that it is our constitution with its inherent balance that polices corruption. A corrupt country can never be great or prosperous.

cute-kid

The there is the consent of the governed. A coercive government taking from some and giving to others WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT cannot last. There has to be a fair distribution and agreement across teh boards.

Here sits a child at the threshold of life, having great potential in America, even although female she has all opportunity. She would also ahve it if she were black.

However  she is going to have to work for it, going to have to learn, to get herself well-educated.

If she depends on the government for a hand-out or a hand-me-up she will fail.

 

False Narrative #5 Trump’s Travel Ban is unconstitutional and is racially motivated – false

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 asking, 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 # 6 Hillary won the Popular Vote – False.
That Hillary won the popular vote is more PROPAGANDA than it is truth.

QUEEN hILLARYQueen 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.

 

False Narrative # 7
Trump and the GOP are Racists – False 

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

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 under the law.

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) What is bad is we have political players like SOROS funding this influx of low, uninformed, uneducated immigrants into America, useful idiots that Soros believes will vote democrat.  The Left accuses the GOP and Trump of meddling in the elections but this is classic gerrymandering.  There is a political agenda.

Mexico, beautiful country, same continent ask yourself why Mexico is 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

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.

Conclusion

To put it all in perspective, watch this video: mind blowing facts.

The income inequality is something America has to address but not by embracing socialism but rather by policing corruption.

The biggest criminalsdanger to the current administration is interference from swamp dwellers who have enjoyed an unfair advantage. They have gamed the system and want to keep on doing it.

It is Trump who now stands in their way and oh so badly they want to nail both he and Putin and get back to corrupt business as usual.

We now have the Mueller investigation: Will it be honest?

I call on all men of good will to stand up for good government.

The world is on the tipping point and we do not want another world war.

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

You can also recognize it because it is filled with name-calling – Putin is a thug, Trump a Russian agent. No specifics are supplied to  back up the accusation. The intent here is to demonize, an immoral political play. There is always a hidden agenda in demonization and in this day and age, sadly, the agenda seems to be to have America fail.  

You will find that those who profit from propaganda lack a moral compass and are inevitably found to be dwelling in the swamp.

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

Be sure you come down on the side of good. With the world on the tipping point it is not the time to do nothing. Stand up and be counted.

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?

A Silent Coup Sitting on a “Gravy Train”

Can ” King” Obama still harm America?

obama shredsusTrump won the election and America should have moved on.

Now it seems America is fighting “the Resistance”. Is this a global plan to bring Obama back for his ” third term”? Men like Obama (no moral compass) do not give up power easily. As puppets they are very attractive to those rich men who pull the strings globally. The ruling elites (first time in almost a century) no longer have a puppet in the White House.

As the LEFT plans this insurrection, it seems billionaire SOROS (with his black Antifa) is right in there funding and orchestrating this unrest

George Soros has said  “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States of America.” Bankers like George SOROS fight sane banking regulation. They treat the world economy as a casino. Rumor is SOROS lost a billion after Trump was elected.

Go to Wikipedia to read Soros’ own words from his books and articles that describe his tried and true system for taking down a country – or “regime change” is what he  calls it. (sic)

Step One: Form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover.

Step Two: Control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets.

Step Three: Destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in the country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of an existing crisis — pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti-government public sentiment.

Step Four: Sow unrest.

Step Five: Provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election and during the election, you cry voter fraud.

Step Six: Take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strikes and you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations. Incitement and violence are conducted at this stage.

Step Seven: Outlast your opponent.

How far along are we down this slippery path?

soros-influence

We are already at Step six.

In choosing Trump as his opponent Soros erred. I don’t think Trump is going to crumble. Nor do I think the people of America will just lie down and let this ugly movement roll over us.  There are too many people of goodwill with a deep love for this country.

Under Soros’s “regime change” all nations are required to surrender their sovereignty to a one world government with no constitutional restraints.

Definition of Fascism: using force and violence on those who fail to see things your way.  Reagan warned us that if Fascism came to America, it would come from the LEFT.

It seems now that the black masked ANTIFA are everywhere but are they engaged in peaceful protest? Sadly, no. These are paid and trained thugs, in fact they are the true fascists. We know this because we see how the ANTIFA uprisings are so carefully orchestrated. There is nothing spontaneous in the Resistance of 2017.

OBAMA’S STATS:
Median Household Income – no increase in his 8 years as President.
Labor participation rate, the lowest in 40 years, 62.6%.
Number of Americans on food stamps up 14% to 45.36 million.
Poverty rate since 2008 shot up 17% to 47 million Americans.
Home ownership has dropped 4% to 63.7%.
National debt has almost doubled from 10.62 Trillion to almost 20 Trillion!!!!
Executive Clout For the first time ever, America’s credit ration was downgraded in 2011.
A record 95 million Americans are NOT in the labor force.

OBAMA’S CRIMES

Gave $150 Billion to Iran, world’s greatest sponsor of terrorism; traded 5 high ranking Taliban terrorists for one traitor; in his final hours, released $221 million in aid to Palestine; lifted American control of the Internet.

And there is more . . . .

From SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Why is Obama staying in Washington? Why did Valerie Jarrett move in? 

You have this what we call shadow government, deep state of career bureaucrats, these are Obama appointees that are working hard and undermining every single solitary day everything that Trump wants to do; this is not by accident. I’ve done a lot of deep background talking to people about where all this is coming from. Where are these leaks coming from? And without fail they all discuss the shadow government, deep state government. The deep state is their term that they’re telling me. Those career bureaucrats. Those holdovers from the Obama administration. And you’ve got to understand here. They are undermining the president.” [Premiere Radio Network, The Sean Hannity Show, 3/3/2017)

And having come out and said this, Sean Hannity is himself now under attack at Fox News.

These injustices will not cease until all criminals from the past eight years are brought to justice. They asked for it setting up a shadow government, they brought their crimes into Trump’s government. Shadow government is dangerous to our Constitutional Republic. Frieze their assets, lock them up.

Not all civil workers are bad. It is true that many are loath to turn on the hand that feeds them. It will take awhile but they will wake up and realize on which side their bread is now being buttered. They will come in line.

On the other hand, Obama’s “Gravy Train” poses an enormous threat to the Trump administration. When you get in the habit of accepting something for nothing this is a criminal attitude so it is these people seek out corrupt leaders, and gravitate to criminal acts. When they cross the line they must be locked up.

The biggest challenge to the GOP lies in a bloated federal government that uses criminal clout to control spending. They do this  BY THREATENING TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. If the government were shut down would it not be a good thing. This is an opportunity to sort out those who are really in need; still have a moral compass and differentiate them from the sluggards and illegals who are just along for the ride.  Trump could set a precedent, after every shutdown record how many unnecessary government workers we were able to lay off.

Sob story those poor postal workers.  Why did the Federal Government get into the postal service, UPS and FEDex do a better job.

A statistic that measures the pruning of the Federal Government, now that would be a grand statistic to keep.  There should be some reward for sifting the grain from the chaff. If this were the focus Congress and the Senate would begin to look forward to the periodic government shutdowns.

Think on this, if you give a child a toy and then try to take it away without replacing it, you are going to have a tantrum on your hands. Don’t blame Trump for all this vulgar “hissy fit protests”.  Obama and the LEFT created the unrest, both directly and indirectly. This is criminal behavior.

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 people

Does any of this sound familiar?

It is hard on those pawns on the Gravy Train  who have been persuaded to use FORCE to try to keep an unfair privilege. The good news is NOW we can see them and their intentions clearly. If they cross the mark, we can deport them, or lock them up.

We have here a failure in education, useful idiots do not understand the electoral college, the American Constitution or our system of government. The marxist/global/socialist bosses know full well that  if you give people too many freebies it is hard to draw back and take them away.  Their whole play book is immoral and the challenge of this new administration is the challenge of how to undo and drain the swamp. A government shutdown is a good place to start.  If Congress doesn’t so its job, Trump should veto bills that drip of bad spending.

You wan to see this clearly:

On the bad side: “Vulgar Liberal Protests” and “Might is Right” and a break down of “Rule of Law”. Recognize also the subversion in our institutions aimed at the disintegration of our culture. Spot also the ongoing efforts to undermine our Republic and our Constitution.

On the other side is Patriots and “Make America Great Again”

How should Patriots react? We make the Resistance irrelevant. What they seek is ATTENTION so we do not give it them. Ignore the tantrums. Ignore the Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer.  It is a lot of (often vulgar) noise signifying nothing.

Then we demand that our elected representatives investigate and find the crimes, that they have the courage to bring corrupt politicians to justice and LOCK THEM UP.

shadow-gvt

We struggle mainly with ignorant lawmakers, judges and low information voters.

This new President has a firm grip on power AND HE WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP whatever the resistance.

It is time for Trump to end the corrupt relationship between the IDLE rich and the IDLE poor and put America and the world back to work.

Song at one of the Trump Rallies

Do you hear the people sing?

Singing a song of angry men?

It is the music of a people

Who will not be slaves again!

When the beating of your heart

Echoes the beating of the drums

There is a life about to start

When tomorrow comes!

Understanding the Unrest in America

(Updated- 4th July)

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.

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 the crooked elites (Obama bribes) in Government are losing under Trump. (see opensecrets.org)
  • And finally there are the neocons trying to stir up a war with Russia.  Clear evidence that Trump is being demonized, but Putin even more so.  McCain and Lindsay Graham (both generously funded by Soros) were recently in the Ukraine and what were they doing there? Good Americans don’t pursue imperial goals, and we don’t meddle in the affairs of other countries for such is unconstitutional.
  • 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 could have lost America.

Understanding the BIG Picture

by Griping Grandpa

Not everyone realizes how much is at stake in the November 2016 US Presidential election. The purpose of this post is to present the big picture, which should make deciding for whom to vote, much easier.

Things are not always the way they seem, nor have they been going very well. We have a broken system that politicians have not been able to fix.

In this post, as in previous posts, I refer to a Mr. X, a type of person whose goal in life is world domination, regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

If you consider such a person evil and insane, you are right, but unfortunately such people do exist; and they exist in positions of power. Mr. X is not a single person, unfortunately, and because he operates behind the scenes we might point fingers at the wrong person. And Mr. X’s plan has been pursued for centuries, even before a certain Mr. X declared, in 1751, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”

(And finally, using the Mr. X moniker makes this post less likely to be removed by the Internet censors.)

Where We Are Heading

Mr. X’s agenda is to control the world under a single government. This is called the globalist agenda. Opposing this is the populist “Make America Great Again” movement, promoted by the Trump campaign.

One argument for the globalist viewpoint is that it would avoid wars. Unfortunately, that is not true. Mr. X likes wars. Mr. X benefits greatly from wars. By lending both sides of the conflict vast sums of money at interest and with plenty of collateral, he makes fantastic profits. Then, after the war, he scores again by lending money for the rebuilding of what was destroyed in the war. Mr. X also believes that there are too many people in the world and wars help to reduce that number. So, no, do not expect there to be fewer wars under a single world government.

America at WarThe current Obama administration has a globalist agenda and this would continue on the same path if Hillary is elected. This administration also seems to go out of its way to antagonize Russia in preparation for World War III. Not a good idea. A war like that is likely to culminate into a nuclear conflict, which could end up killing all human life on this planet and possibly all animal and plant life as well. Nuclear radiation can take centuries to reduce to safe levels.

America has had more than its fair share of wars. Under the hidden hand of Mr. X, America has been at war over 90% of the years since its revolutionary war.

For me, a period of peace and prosperity would be a good idea. Trump has been portrayed as a bully, but he is far from that.

Wars don’t benefit anyone, except Mr. X and his helpers, the armaments industry and opportunistic politicians. The people as a whole lose. Many lose their lives or their property. They agree to draconian measures, losing their hard-won freedoms in the process. And of course their tax burden increases as well.

Even if we would not end up in a disastrous war, if Hillary wins, her open border policy will inundate our country with poor people from our South and the Middle East, further increasing our unemployment, our tax burden and our crime rate and further watering down of our culture, with more conflict and more strife.

The Alternative

What Mr. Trump is proposing flies into the teeth of the globalists. That’s why he is fought against so hard. He proposes to control the borders, to restore law and order, to return jobs to the United States and to return the nation to greatness. You may not like him but at least he is not a member of secret societies that rule the world by stealth. If he were, the media would shout it from the roof tops. And best of all he does not need any hand-outs from Mr. X.

Statue of LibertyIn 2016 we have ta chance to choose a successful businessman, funded by mainly by himself, rather than a politician funded by special interests. We have a chance to clean house and to reverse the trend of centuries towards global domination and to bring about some real, positive change.

America’s past has been one of freedom, productivity, prosperity and innovation. Think of our courageous founders like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Think of innovators like the Wright Brothers, Edison, Tesla, Ford and Bell. Of course, our country is not perfect and we can overdo our patriotism, but wouldn’t you rather have America lead the world, not by force, but by example than having it join the drab ranks of the Third World?

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?

When more Americans prefer freebies to freedom, these great United States will become a fertile ground for tyranny.

Understanding Trade

Not all Trade Deals are Good for America

With ObamaTrade the devil is in the details, hidden from Congress & the American people

Why does America seek Trade agreements?  We all agree we are better off if we trade with our neighbors, so what is the deal here?   While many Trade deals are good and put America First with ObamaTrade the American Citizen loses out. It is a lot worse than that though, with ObamaTrade America gives up her sovereignty.

This is serious guys. No vote should be cast on this lightly.

This is a Trade Deal destroys our Sovereignty

This is a Trade Deal destroys our Sovereignty

The TPA was sneaked through the Senate at the end of May 2015, and this was largely a matter of timing. It was put through when all eyes were on Rand Paul and his epic filibuster. Despite feeble efforts to inject it with continuing life, Paul forced the Patriot Act to die an ignoble death. This was something good.

However, there was something else happening in the wings? With a lot of bribe money in his back pocket, Obama was hard and fast working the politicians in Congress to get TPA approved.  And he succeeded. TPA is designed to give the President (and his executive branch) the sole authority to negotiate trade treaties and and in the face of this, Congress becomes almost irrelevant. Not a good scene, the imbalance between the Legislature, the Judiciary and the Executive was already out of whack, and this just made it even worse.

unconstitutionalA lot of money went into getting TPA passed; paid for by the U.S. Business Coalition for TPP. Donors to the Coalition were Goldman Sachs, followed closely by Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and members of the military industrial complex, which included GE, Halliburton and Northrop Grumman. The Coalition bought Senate support for $1,148,971 being given as bribes to senators, an average of $19,673.28 for Republicans and $9,689.23 for Democrats.

TPA was enacted to ensure fast passage TPP, otherwise called ObamaTrade.

Does this tell you anything?

What congressional rights did Congress give up with the passage of TPA?

Congress gave up the power to write legislation, the power to amend legislation, the power to fully examine legislation, the power to predict and investigate the consequences to a specific bill.  In addition Congress gave up the chance to keep debate open until cloture. Most of all Congress gave up the constitutional requirement that Trade-treaties can only be approved  by a full two-thirds vote.

Both Presidential candidates have said they will disapprove ObamaTrade (TPP) However this is a global play, and Clinton if anything, is a global candidate who was for TPP before she was against it.  Still . . .

Obama is back with even more (I suspect) Global bribe money He wants to get TPP approved during the lame duck session. So in order to be sure to get presidential approval he has to get it signed WHILE HE IS STILL PRESIDENT. What better time than around the holidays after all the excitement of the election when nobody is looking. He is still calling the shots, yet nobody is seeing it like that, he has legal power. Expect another titillating controversy to absorb our protest and attention while he sneaks it through.

Why would this would be a disaster?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is not TPA, that now a done deal. It is a complex and convoluted legislation that has been shrouded in secrecy. Few of the Congressmen who will finally have to ratify it, have even read it.

TPP (ObamaTrade) is a trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries. The finalized proposal was signed on 4 February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, concluding seven years of negotiations. However IT IS NOT LAW UNTIL RATIFIED BY CONGRESS in an up down vote which now only has to get a 50% majority.

Donald Trump says, there are good and bad Trade Deals. and this is one abomination. How so? With this new trading block we have something akin to the EU set up, with a bureaucratic stranglehold on true free Trade. True free trade is good, but this is not that.

There is a lot in ObamaTrade that has nothing whatsoever to do with trade:

  1. Strong patent protection rules for Big Pharma. This increases cost of medications globally, putting a burden on the global poor
  2. Changes to the USA copyright law. Under the TPP, copyright terms for individuals would go from life of the author plus 50 years to life of the author plus 70 years.
  3. Worst of all are the International-Investor Tribunals. There are provisions that grant foreign investors the right to sue governments on the basis of vague and broad obligations regarding loss of “expected” profits. Such suits would not be decided by judges appointed for life in the American courts which subordinate to the Constitution. Where special interests appoint both the judge and the jury we can expect arbitrary justice.Let me give an example. It seems Goldman Sachs may have had a part in the crash of the Greek economy (done with currency finagling) So let’s just say the Greek people wake up and elect a new government.  They are good people and want to follow rule of law.

inijustrice

So they investigate the situation and yes they think there are financial crimes. They are quite sure there are financial crimes. They sue

Any chance of them winning? Wake up to the real world, now dominated by TPP. The court finds for Goldman Sachs, after all did they not lose profits?

So we are about to subject our jurisprudence to tribunals appointed by the corporate oligarchies. Might is right and there will be no justice. America has been snookered into losing her sovereignty.

You see Obama Trade operates ABOVE THE CONSTITUTION. With this transfer of authority legislators give up their god given right to do their job as defined by the constitution.

Sadly there is an unhealthy imbalance between the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary; ObamaTrade makes this far worse.

jobsAnd finally jobs, jobs, jobs  which just happens to be our weakest area. TPP like NAFTA & TAFTA will steal jobs from good Americans.

Yes Donald Trump, there are good deals and bad deals and this one is an abomination.


 Where to from Here?

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

The people of America do not like the TPP; polls show this clearly. RINOs beware.  Polls show an overwhelming majority oppose TPP and they are out there on Social Media howling their outrage. Politicians who support TPP should wake up and smell the coffee and vote their conscience and for America and not for their back pocket.

Polls or voting won’t defeat TPP; it’s too far along. It is only if we stand together to oppose this assault on our constitution, our heritage and our rights; if we stand up and speak out, and get right in the face of power, will the people be able to overcome TPP’s plutocracy.

These words were spoken by the Libertarian candidate in Politics IOU ( the Election that Spooked the Elites)

Why Do Attacks On Trump Continue Despite Massive Popular Support?

By Griping Grandpa

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

“Why?” you may ask.

Mr. X

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

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X at Work

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

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

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

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

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

Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Open Letter to Kellyanne Conway

Some thoughts about polling to win:

how to win

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

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

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

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

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

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

imp issuesThis analysis is useful but incomplete.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

trump promise

Grandma’s Conclusions:

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

Here are a  few suggestions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a team inspect voting machines NOW.

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

There you have it.

I hope this was helpful.

They try so hard to block Trump’s message

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

shutterstock_177770915

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don’t go into government.  Donald Trump

Posted August 5 at CRC but I was unable to share this  on Facebook.  So note well I didn’t write it – I edited it to make it shorter and fit the post guidelines I follow in this blog.  YOu can read the actual content at https://capitalresearch.org/2016/08/sliming-trump/

I was unable to share the original content on Facebook although the article gave valuable insights into the election; so I copied the content to my blog Grandma Thunder – Independent Voice and as a supreme influencer on the net I will get out the message, any suppression of free speech that exists here notwithstanding.

 

Has the Media lost its Way?

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

jefferson-corrupt

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

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

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

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

Is this the old free America?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

owned

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

01orwell

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

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

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

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

ben

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

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

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

The International Bankers–famous quotes about international bankers

Trump University

. . .  from Pat Buchanan

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

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

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific?

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

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

And who is Curiel?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Surely, that was among the reasons Marshall was appointed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Another “inexcusable” outrage.

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

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

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

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

 

Note from Grandma Thunder:

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

powderkeg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quote for the Week

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

Robert T. Kiyosaki – Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Why we cannot Trust Hillary with our Foreign Policy


Hillary Rejects ‘
America First’

By Patrick J. Buchanan

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

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

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

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

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

What is happening here?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Even then, she knew better.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Note from Grandma Thunder

Two things to think about regarding American Foreign Policy

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Hillary has a cozy, close relationship with Henry Kissinger.

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

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

Will the Debates influence the Election Outcome?

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

Genuine emotion, is it a factor in an election?

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

Our Future

    Our Future

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

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

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

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

Examine these mind blowing facts

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

 About Bad Lobbying:

corporate greed

About Bad Banking

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is the difference between these two candidates?

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

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

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

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

Obama's legacy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Hillary wins there will be more income inequality.

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

Has Ayn Rand Been Good for America?

America is on a tipping point.

money in 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TBTF

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

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

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

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

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

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

Restore a healthy Balance of Power

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

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

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

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

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

Could this perhaps be how Donald Trump operates?

Open Letter to Jenny Beth Martin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

corporate greed

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

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

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

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

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

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

Political Lies – How they Serve the Corrupt

(June/July  2017)

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

Their long-term survival lies in following the truth.

Here is the elite agenda.

How we are controlled

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Russo-phobia

trump-russia

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

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

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

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

shadow-gvt

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3-branches-of-govt

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

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

Quote for the Day

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

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

Political Secrets

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

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

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

Coercive government, religion or healthcare is WRONG.

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

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

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

The biggest force for freedom is the Internet. The Internet has remained FREE because it has operated in the USA under the Bill of Rights. Here in the USA freedom of speech is guaranteed. This is not the case in most of the other countries in the world. Thanks to what has been a free and open Internet we have been able to drain the swamp in this new age.  The people when they KNOW will not tolerate corruption.  So we can say that King Obama had no MORAL right to abdicate on the control of the Internet as this truly rests with we the American people.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How do we fight back?

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

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

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

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

Much Ado about Donald Trump (updated after the election)

 

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

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

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

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

Just to name a few:

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

No wonder there are a lot of unhappy people.

Those who love Donald Trump see that . . .

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


corporate greed

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

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

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

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

 

 

character

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

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

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

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

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

Do your homework.

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

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

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

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

families at night

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

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

Quote for the Week. 

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

George Washington

Can Bill Clinton fix small business for Hillary?

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

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

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

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

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

robtheworld

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We should learn from our past mistakes.

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

TBTF

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“What?” said Bobby. 

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

“Duh?” 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oh yeah?

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

*************  

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

Quote for the Week

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
