Understanding Demonization when Used as a Political Tool

(Post forwarded from Need to Know News by Edward Griffin)

Are Trump’s political opponents beside themselves figuring out ways to undermine his popularity

TO DEMONIZE IS THE FIRST STEP

The news this week is primarily about Donald Trump’s actions during his first week in office. There is little need for commentary except to say that (1) so far, he is following through on several of his most noteworthy campaign promises, and (2) his political opponents are beside themselves trying to figure out ways to undermine his popularity.

It is an axiom of political warfare that it is not wise to assassinate popular opponents except as a last resort. Instead, it is better to demonize them in the public mind so that, when violence finally is used, the public will think it was justified.

There is no better example than what happened to the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas, in 1993. Because the leader of this religious group was known to have weapons that were not registered, the federal government and National Guard laid siege to their compound and killed its leader, David Koresh, along with 82 of his congregation, including women and children.

The public was not outraged by this, because the media had published an endless barrage of ‘reports’ of sexual abuse of children in the compound – reports that, in later months were shown to be without foundation. But the public didn’t know that at the time, and most people thought it was a shame about those children being killed in the attack, but it was merely collateral damage from a justified law-enforcement operation against very evil people.

If you want to understand what is going on from the left 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.

The only way to prevent that tactic from succeeding is to make the public aware of the tactic itself. That’s where you come in. Send this to your friends and, while you’re at it, invite them to subscribe to Need to Know News. They will thank you for it.

Understanding too Big to Fail; Glass Steagall & the Volcker Rule

Always, it is the forgotten man who suffers when Big Banks are Dishonest 

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

robtheworld

Small Business (organized right)  employs more than all the high tech companies, more than Walmart, Ali Baba, and Amazon added up together. Wipe out the small businesses, each with two or three or twenty employees with BAD LEGISLATION and (like Obama) you destroy the smaller jobs that keep the economy afloat.

So how do we rate the new Trump, Treasury Secretary?

The only thing on which he is firm is that there will be no bank bailouts. Well good.

The Vocker rule? he kind of likes it. Does he favor Glass Steagall; maybe and maybe not?  Is he in bed with the big bankers? Looks like that but not necessarily so. This dissembling may not be a bad thing at all, at all.  We should give the man a chance. Now is not the time to rock the financial boat.

NOTE: GLASS STEAGALL WAS A CAMPAIGN PROMISE.  It was even written into the GOP platform.

To clarify, the Volcker rule puts limits on the ability of banks to bet with money entrusted to them by depositors.

Glass Steagall on the other hand. cleans up the confused identity in banking. It forces banks to be either an Investment Bank or a Commercial Bank.

An Investment Bank buys and sells bonds, stocks and other investments. They assist new companies to go public with their initial offering. (IPOs) When we think of Investment Banks we also think of market or economic liquidity. Investment Banks fulfill their purpose (contribution to the social contract) better with fewer regulations. They need  governed by common sense rules that are simple and clearly defined. Now after fifly years of confused identity, it is a hornet’s nest. For example, the rules governing derivatives badly need clarified, and overhauled. Derivatives have formed a banking bubble and we now have more “too big to fail banks” than we had in 2008.

Commercial Banks on the other hand act as managers for deposit accounts. They serve both individuals and small businesses.  In the ideal the money they take in is lent out to individuals and small businesses and the economy grows.  Because they deal with the little man, or small businesses that are somewhat frail, they demand more oversight.

In September 2016 we had the Wells Fargo scandal. The employees secretly created millions of unauthorized bank and credit card accounts — without their customers knowing it, they were charging them phony fees and making off like a banshee. Wells Fargo employees secretly opened unauthorized accounts to hit sales targets in order to receive bonuses. Commercial banks need oversight.

NOTE: Like 2008 when no banking executives were prosecuted, the Wells Fargo CEO resigned and walked away free of blame. Hello?

TBTFThe seeds for the 2008 crash were sown on Bill Clinton’s watch; an inept president and his greedy banking cronies who took advantage. The economy was turned around after the 2008 crash. It took taxpayer bailouts of both American and Foreign Banks. Obama and Bernanke saved the system, but failed to fix the problem. It is the “Mom & Pop” small business that trusts these banks.  It is also the “Mom & Pop” small business culture that fueled what economic Obama recovery there was. If these little businesses get wiped out in a banking crash, or by over-regulation, it would be a bad, sad day for America.

With this in mind the new government may look at being proactive and enacting Glass Steagall. It is also a way to break up the big banks that is fair. It simplifies things.

Note well: It was the crash of 2008 that brought on the income inequality that now puts our culture at risk.

A little background on Glass Steagall:

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. 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. This little story illustrates the point.

“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&PopPurists 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 integrity.

 ***********

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?

Banking is a very treacherous business because you don’t realize it is risky until it is too late. It is like calm waters that deliver huge storms.

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? We are 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

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

election-2016

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 Popular Vote in 2016

Assertion that Hillary Clinton Won Popular Vote, While Technically True, Amounts to Propaganda

Posted by T.J. Kong on November 12, 2016

In the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election, the Democrats have taken up the mantra of “Hillary won the popular vote.” A careful analysis of the election results indicate that this claim is very deceptive.

The Libertarian Vote is Key to Understanding the Election

As of the night of November 20, the popular vote percentages are as follows:

Hillary Clinton (Democrat) 48.03%

Donald Trump (Republican) 47.01%

Gary Johnson (Libertarian) 3.28%

Jill Stein (Green) 1.01%

Other 0.65%

Since Libertarians are closely linked with the Right and Greens with the Left, it is fair, for the sake of analysis, to add Libertarian vote the Trump’s total and the Green vote to Clinton. When the popular vote is counted this way, we end up with 50.29% of the popular vote being cast for the Right and just 49.04% for the Left.

It is probably safe to assume that the “Other” vote was equally divided between the Left and the Right. If we add half of the “Other” total to the Right and the Left totals we end up with 50.615% for the Right and 49.365% for the Left. We can assume, therefore, that in a two person race Trump would have won almost 51% of the popular vote, carried Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Nevada and Colorado (which means every swing state except Virginia) and won by  a thirty-three larger electoral vote margin. This would have given him 339 electoral votes to Clinton’s 199.

The bottom line is that the popular vote in this election represented a rejection of the Left Wing politics of Clinton and the embracing of Right Wing politics of Trump. Clinton bested Trump in the popular vote only 1.02 percent. Clinton’s popular vote “victory” came by just a hair.

The Electoral College System

When considering the significance of her popular vote “victory,” one must keep in mind that we decide our presidential election by the Electoral College system. Neither of the candidates conducted an election strategy designed to win the popular vote by maximizing the number of popular votes received. Therefore to proclaim that Clinton won the popular votes is like declaring her the winner of a game in which neither she nor Trump even participated.

election-2016

While it may be technically correct to claim the Clinton “won” the popular vote, it is pure spin to use this fact in an attempt to delegitimatize the mandate won by Trump on election day. Clinton did not “win” the popular vote because the people favored her but because the Libertarian candidate did so well at the polls.

Note from Grandma Thunder:

Basing an election on the popular vote is how corrupt Banana Republicans operate. We choose a higher ground in America where individual and minority rights are protected & secured. Questionable facts have surfaced after the election that invalidate the Left’s propaganda narrative that they won the popular vote.

  • Evidence of voter fraud with voters allowed to vote more than once.
  • Evidence of illegal immigrants voting in the 2016 election especially in California.
  • Circumstantial evidence that we still have a long way to go before we can vouch for the integrity of the voting system.

    The greatest threat to the constitutional right to vote is voter fraud.

Understanding the Unrest after the 2016 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. 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 good news is that the opposition is now out of the closet. Some of the opposition is innocuous, uninformed with mere ideological differences. This is fine, our system allows for differences.  Unfortunately, there are still many on the LEFT that cannot believe that the majority in America actually wants 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.

Clear evidence that after the election “the Resistance” is being orchestrated by Obama and funded by SOROS – sick. This is a clear, corrupt assault on our form government, our culture and our heritage. This swamp WILL be drained.

shadow-gvt

So far there has been no civil war and there won’t be if ALL in America wake up and see clearly that the real problem is those who seek to divide and rule us. At heart we are ALL Americans with a tradition of liberty, and LEFT or RIGHT we love our country.  We could have lost it but that Trump won the election. Trump’s strength of mind and self-confidence will stand us in good stead in the troubled times that still lie ahead. He also has a firm grip on what has been a rocky transition of power; because of foreign interference it has been more rocky than usual. Acceptance from the LEFT will come, but it may come slowly.  Donald Trump is and will serve out eight years, as the 45th President. 

So why all the noisy upset?

One: Drain the Swamp

There were/are a lot of people who were supporting Hillary, who now stand to lose an unfair advantage or privilege.

Let us just name a few of the #DTS (Drain the Swamp) situations:

  • Sanctuary Cities
  • Welfare programs like “meals for wheels” being used by the corrupt organizers running these programs for crony-ism or other things.
  • 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 were being dumped into the sea. Trump’s first EPA action was to fix the water in Flint.  The altered importance of the EPA is legend.
  • 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.
  • Those gaming the legislative process
  • Teachers protected by seniority and not judged on their performance. This is where we see the strong objections to Betsy de Vos, will end the public school monopoly.
  • 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 were so desperate to hide.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Investors like George SOROS using arcane investing rules to  profit from an economic decline. (Then they use their new found wealth and power to actively do our country in)
  • 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 taxpayer funding for abortion clinics.
  • “Bad Hombres” pushing drugs into America.  The states where most drugs go are where we find the loudest protests (sad) .
    mexican-drug-infilitration
  • Monsanto (GMO) permitted by Clinton to hide what they are doing to poison our food.
  • And finally there is all the foreign $$$$ donated to the Clinton Foundation expecting favors after she was to become President. (Pay for Play)
  • Then 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 funded by Soros) were recently in the Ukraine and what were they doing there? They were seen stirring up the rebels. Is this good American behavior? Good Americans don’t pursue imperial goals, and we don’t meddle in the affairs of other countries. Such is unconstitutional.

Lots of crooked, unhappy people.

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. It can only happen if we do not wake up and see what is happening.

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. Protesters shout slogans and pretend to have the moral high ground. LOL. When has “might is right”; use of force to enact a political agenda been “high moral ground”?  Good people follow the constitution and accept the peaceful transfer of power. Good people go out to work, support themselves, their family and they understand our heritage and support our nation.

The organized protesters who are not good people, shout obscenities, start fires, destroy property, get violent and assault people; these are tactics employed in times past by Stalin and Lenin.  We have to sadly conclude, that while it seemed we won the cold war, the evil went underground and the war against fascism and socialism is still raging, fostered by the LEFT who do not understand our constitutional republic.

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. It is in the Education for this is a war of ideas.
The organizers of the riots are trying to persuade observers to feel that, even though the violence is obnoxious, these protest actions are justified by the “virtue of their cause”  The tactic is known in war playbooks (Saul Allinsky) as ‘virtue signaling’.

What we are clearly up against is a network of professional thugs who would go nowhere without the training in subversion from those who wish to divide and rule us, and have lots lots and lots of money and think they have the right to rule the world. Sorry, not in America. And not in Russia. There is increasing evidence that today Putin has seen through the Socialist scam; increasing evidence that like America under Trump, Putin likes the morality of Christianity and stands in strict opposition to Socialism. Russia is not a democratic country as is America, but by research and observation it is also no longer Marxist.

So if not Russia, WHO?  All the evidence points to George SOROS, who has strong ties to the Fabian Socialists and their New World Order and have been working towards this secretive goal for the last century. Makes Sense, right?  Is it not their imperial goals of a world without borders THAT WOULD BE MOST ENDANGERED BY “AMERICA FIRST”.

So while we don’t have war, it is actually war.

They cannot stand Trump. It is an axiom of political warfare that it is not wise to assassinate popular opponents except as a last resort. Instead, it is 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. 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. No more.

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

Note: America is now at #4 on this chart while England 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.
  • 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 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) 
  • 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 is sound on Taxes. He asks simplification of the cumbersome and complex income tax code. 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
  • That he only hits back when attacked, yet hits back hard and effectively.

There was a whole thick, entrenched system in Washington which was rigged.  There is also a whole sick culture of moral decay and decline in Hollywood. We begin to understand the opposition to Trump better when we realize just how much money the elites (both global, democratic and republican) stand to lose when Trump exposes the corruption, and their part in it. 

To such people who are wary of Trump, I say give him time and space. 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 “coercive government” that there is really no choice. Let me clarify; In a Republic, government rules only with consent of the governed. In a global or progressive administration “Might is Right” autocratic rule, big brother, and bullying is 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.

So where do we go from here? We all come together as Americans, grateful that once again American constitutionalism overcame.

What can you yourself do in your little sphere of interest for it is going to be rocky for awhile, something we all have to go through.  You can spread the truth by tweeting and sharing. Main Stream Media has lost the trust of the people, but your friends trust you.

My father always said in troubled times go back to your roots.   Here is where you should begin: Hillsdale College Course on the Constitution. Then also share your new understanding. WHEN EDUCATED PEOPLE OF GOODWILL OUTNUMBER THE BAD. So much depends on people across the aisle doing their homework, getting honestly informed and coming out in support of the 45th President.

Conclusion
If you truly in your heart believe that Socialism is a better way, we respect that. However as proven by the last election this is not what America wants.

But the EU has embraced socialism. Obama gave us a war with Syria we did not want and then he tried to foist refugees on us (beyond the consent of the people) We have taken in a fair amount before Trump stopped them coming.  Perhaps we are owed a return flow.  So collect together a group of like-minded people and I am sure the EU will welcome you with open arms.  In that way there is more agreement AND EVERYBODY WINS.

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

Understanding”Useful Idiots” and “Saul Allinsky”

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

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

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

Useful Idiot

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

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

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

Useful Idiots:

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

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

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

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

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

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

We chose America First

Will you, too?

Understanding Bad Legislation

Dirty Tricks have been used to pass Bad Laws

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

01one bill

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

Not okay 

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

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

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

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

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

TBTF

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

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

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

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

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

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

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

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

ObamaCare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding 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)

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

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.

Political Lies – How they Serve the Corrupt


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.

Those at the tip of the pyramid selected Hillary to be the next president of the USA. to act out Obama and Bill’s third terms. When she lost they were unwilling to give up their corrupt privilege. It seems they are quite willing (in fact want to) destroy the Republic. NOTE: It is the American Constitution with its checks & balances that polices corruption.

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 in 2016 running scared because (so far) they cannot bribe Donald Trump. They got to Bernie Sanders and they brought him down. 2016 was shaping up to be Global vs Patriot – America chose.

Banking corruption been around a long time but is still alive today as proven by the fact that Congress still refuses to pass Rand Paul’s “Audit the Fed” legislation. Sad.

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from its profits or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” . . . “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” – Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild, 1744-1812

The Rothchild family still has a major stake in the Federal Reserve that is not federal but a privately owned corporation set up to have the idle rich use the idle poor to defraud working America. With inflation from its stimulus packages the Fed also steals from seniors who are on a fixed income. Follow the money.

The too big to fail banks expect the American taxpayer to pick up the tab and reimburse their losses when they operate inefficiently. Not only did America pick up the tab for the American bail-outs in 2008 but American taxpayer money was used by the FED to also bail out foreign banks.

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 buy him.  

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.

About Bad TV.
A little tip, It is very interesting to watch how the LEFT attacks Trump for their own dirty tricks and sins.  Hillary attacks Trump as a womanizer, LOL, it is Bill, we all know, guilty there. Hillary has Russian crimes (selling out American Uranium) and the Podestas have been in bed with Russia for some time. LOL the Clinton’s even have their own corrupt little University.

The press is very adept at putting a spin on things.  Political consultants aim to “smear” the opponent and sadly the press (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 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

The press who should be ferreting out the truth, are having a field day wallowing in the rotten treacle. CNN is not only Hillary’s chosen media, THEY ARE ALSO A MAJOR DONOR. Conflict of interest. Mighty bad. Mighty sad. MSNBC is even worse also gave to Clinton bigly.

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 too-little-for women, Trump is racialist, Trump is anti-Muslim, Trump is anti-Latino. Russia caused Hillary to lose the election.  Putin is funny on this. He raised an eyebrow and said, ” Are you not a Super Power? Do you really think I am able to influence your elections?” These attack slanders are generalities and like all generalities the clever voter spots that they are partly or largely FALSE. Truth is very specific.  

About the Globalists (Bilderbergers)
The elites have enjoyed an unfair advantage throughout the industrial age. Unfortunately they now tend to think that this is the natural order. For decades they have been able to buy political candidates and politicians. Jacob Rothchild now head of the banking family so loves HIllary, has come out to the closet to say, “Donald Trump endangers the New World Order” Is this why they slander and attack him?

This election is not about the Elephants vs the Donkeys it is about “We the People”, honest grassroots movements, vs the Establishment in a climate of secrecy

As for the corrupt political donors, the very worst is the fascist George Soros who it has been shown to be behind the current national unrest. It is SOROS with Obama who has set up a Shadow Government.

shadow-gvt

Go figure.

I have this well researched, but you should not take my word on it, do your own research.  Google Macedonia. Know also, that thanks to Obama America has been paying for much of the SOROS world-meddling especially in Macedonia. (Soros (with Obama’s help is also guilty in Syria, Yemen,  Egypt, and Ukraine)  G.W Bush (also a globalist) is responsible for Iraq and Afghanistan.  Do yourself a favor and do your research and get informed. Our founding fathers warned us NOT to meddle in the affairs of other sovereign nations. If we had taken their advice we would not have this massive debt to pass along to our grand children.

SOROS like the recently deceased Rockefeller, and Rothschild, are global manipulators, trying to use socialism to dominate. What they like best of all is to get America to pay for their imperialistic world-game but Trump is calling them on it.  Now that their latest game is breaking up, they are getting desperate.

The game of 2017 is still the Globalists vs PatriotsPick your team.

America is the land of the free. England is where rule of law has its roots. Brexit, and Le Pen in France are but an echo of the Trump revolution in America. What Brexit and the Trump revolution is about is reaffirming constitutional rule and rule of law. What Le Pen is about is preserving the beautiful culture of France. 

Justice has been blind for the last eight years. Justice should exist ABOVE partisan politics.

Is it really too much to ask of the Media that they be truthful and specific and serve the greater good.

In conclusion:
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 and restudy, as I am now doing – 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 bad times do we need good people to lead us but how badly they want to tear them down.

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

Quote for the Day

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

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

The high cost of illegal immigration

This problem has yet to be solved. 

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

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

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

kid crying

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

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

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

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

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

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

Americans, We need to wake up!

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

BUSINESS DOESN’T WANT TO PAY A DECENT WAGE.

CONSUMERS DON’T WANT EXPENSIVE PRODUCE.

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

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

HE QUALIFIES FOR SECTION 8 HOUSING AND SUBSIDIZED RENT.

HE QUALIFIES FOR FOOD STAMPS.

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

HIS CHILDREN GET FREE BREAKFASTS AND LUNCHES AT SCHOOL.

HE REQUIRES BILINGUAL TEACHERS AND BOOKS.

HE QUALIFIES FOR RELIEF FROM HIGH ENERGY BILLS.

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

ONCE QUALIFIED FOR SSI THEY CAN QUALIFY FOR MEDICARE.

TAXPAYERS PROVIDE SPANISH LANGUAGE SIGNS, BULLETINS AND PRINTED MATERIAL.

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

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

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

CHEAP LABOR?  YEAH RIGHT!  WAKE UP PEOPLE!

                   Quote for the Week

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

 

 

Expect the Best, but prepare for the Worst

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

inijustrice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

sliding banks

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

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

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

In choosing a president, we really don’t choose a Republican or Democrat, a conservative or liberal. We choose a leader.

Rudy Giuliani 

Understanding Election 2016

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

justice bias

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

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

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

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

Furthermore thanks to Wikileaks what we now know is:

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

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

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

So the pertinent questions are:

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

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

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

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

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

Power Corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.

Executive, Justice and Legislature

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. 

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

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

Quote for the Week

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

Does 2016 give us a Chance?

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

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

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

Could it be simpler? Simple is good.

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

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

The Story of Glass-Steagall 

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

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

TBTF

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

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

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

The story of the Federal Reserve

Fed stats

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

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

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

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

ObamaCare

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The War on Women

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

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

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

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

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

How we are controlled

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

your chance to make America Great again

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

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


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

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

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

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.

Illegal Immigration 2015

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

Latinos increasing their numbers

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

Legal is as Legal does 

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

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

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

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

Graph showing undocumented spread.

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

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

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

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

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

Graph shoving high school drop-outs

Conclusion

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

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

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

 Our nation stands at the crossroads of liberty. Crushing national debt, rampart illegal immigration, insane business regulations and staggering national unemployment are pushing our nation into unchartered territory.  James Lankford. 

 

An open letter to Donald Trump from Grandma Thunder

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

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

About how dirty this game is. . .

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

your chance to make America Great again

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

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

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

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

2016 is the year when these dirty tricks stop working.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Examine these mind blowing facts

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

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

Cutting a bribe

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

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

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

third party

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Koch Political Organization; Americans for Prosperity

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

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

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

 

Monkey Business in Politics

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

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

A little history:

pretendinvoter fraud doesn't exist.

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

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

In 2012 the ELECTION was STOLEN.

“How so?” I asked

“It was bought with food stamps.”

“No?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But it gets worse, much worse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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