TrumpCare Challenge-Governance With the “Art of the Deal”

Democrat Obamacare Vs Republican TrumpCare

Obamacare was NEVER “sunshined” to the American Voter, or even Congress, before it was passed.  Just ask then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said we will have to pass it to see what is in it!

The TrumpCare replacement, ala Paul Ryan, was just made public and all hell broke loose.  AS IT SHOULD!  The good news, it has not even undergone House hearings or opened yet for amendments let alone scheduled for a vote in the House.  The Senate has yet to propose its own bill or reviewed the House bill with its Republican caucus. 

So far, what you are witnessing is Congress going through a normal legislative process where this TrumpCare bill will be sliced, diced, amended, changed dramatically or even scrapped altogether before the process is finished. 

That is a good thing.  That is what we sent our representatives to Congress to do!

Keep in mind, there are two parts to the ultimate TrumpCare legislation.  One, Repeal Obamacare.  Two, Replace Obamacare.  According to many of the conservatives, the current bill does not go far enough to completely repeal the current ACA/Obamacare law.  Further, these same conservatives do not feel that the current replacement bill is not a free-market, conservative principled replacement.  You are hearing the term Obamacare-Lite!

Why did Trump praise this bill even though the bill did not contain all that he wanted and campaigned to deliver?

The House, Ryan TrumpCare bill is a Start!  Trump see this bill as the START of the Negotiations, not the FINAL PRODUCT!

Now the fun part begins.  The “sausage making” will be on full display as it should be.  For those who are less than 25 years old, you have never really seen a real legislative process!  For those of us who have attained senior status, we may have forgotten what a real legislative process looks like!

Be that as it may, the public display and posturing by the various factions works to our advantage.  Call your Senator, call your representative, tweet President Trump directly and let you voice be heard.   This bill, in its current form, will not be passed nor signed by President Trump.  It is only the beginning. 

Be assured that President Trump, VP Pence, and HHS Secretary Price will be working to make sure all sides come together.  They would also include the Democrats but it is doubtful if they will join in the debate.  They seem to be fixated on the Russians, period. 

Maybe if Putin weighs in on the TrumpCare process, the Democrats and their lackeys in the main stream media ears would perk up.  Don’t hold your breath!  Just imagine the editorial meeting in the NYT trying to figure out how to tie this to Russian Hacking and Trump collusion with Putin!

Pope Francis-Hypocrit on Native American Treatment and Rights

Pope Francis criticizes the policies of the Trump Administration but does not mention the treatment of California Native Peoples TODAY regarding Native Lands appropriated by the Church and the Spanish Government in the 1700 and 1800’s!

Image result for pope francis and american indians

Pope Francis stated:

“In this regard, the right to prior and informed consent should always prevail,” he said. “Only then is it possible to guarantee peaceful cooperation between governing authorities and indigenous peoples, overcoming confrontation and conflict.”

Did, or does, the Pope apply the same pious rhetoric to the Mexican and California Native Peoples who were driven off of their lands and converted to Catholicism during the California Missionary period?  Does the Pope care that the Ohlone, Costanoan, Esselen Nation, OCEN, the tribe that inhabited the greater Monterey/Carmel region of California, is not even officially recognized by the Federal Government nor does it have any real say in the day-to-day operations of the Missions in this region?  This tribe lived with St. Serra at the Carmel Mission and helped to build that mission and the others in the region. 

The Catholic hierarchy in California, especially under the Archbishop José Horacio Gomez in its Southern and Central dioceses, only pay attention to the native voices when there is a problem.  The hierarchy still treats our native peoples like second class citizens and certainly not with the “respect” the Pope said they deserve.

Pope Francis spoke out seemly about he Dakota pipeline that was just approved by the Trump Administration.  The contention by the tribes in the area was that the pipeline COULD damage their water supply in spite of engineering assurances that the pipeline would be safe and their water supply kept from harms way.  Contrast this with actual ancient Native People’s burial grounds that surround the California missions that have been built upon, paved over, and not respected by the Church.  The Pope has not said a word nor given any directives that would give the Native Peoples of these Missions any say in how the Mission Grounds are maintained or how improvements would be made.  Hence, hypocrite…

In a past blog entitled, “Time for Social Justice?  The Church, Its California Missions, &  Its Native Peoples”, short link: http://wp.me/pY51c-Gt, there were several policies and actions that Pope Francis should insure that the California Archbishops and Bishops initiate immediately:

“New Social Justice by the Church:  There are a couple of very simple efforts the Church could make to live up to Blessed Serra’s call for “Always Forward”.

  1. Mutual Support of Native Burial Grounds:  Where there are recognized native people’s burial grounds, form agreements with the local Nations/Tribes to jointly maintain and preserve these grounds.  If there are costs involved, work together to raise the funds necessary to properly maintain and preserve these grounds.  We preserve art and artifacts, what is more important than human ancestral remains?
  2. More Open Access to Native Peoples:  The Church should make sure that each mission develops policies and practices that welcome native peoples back to the missions either as individuals or groups.   If there are special prayer ceremonies or other gatherings that can be scheduled, the local mission should be working with the native peoples to accommodate these events and make is easy on the native peoples to frequently engage in these events.
  3. Support Local Tribes:  If there are local tribes that are seeking Nation status or have other needs requiring local, state or federal approval, the Church should support the native peoples in these efforts.  That is not to say that the Church has to pay for the legal or other costs, but they should lend all of the support they can to facilitate the local peoples efforts.
  4. The Church, Act Like Blessed (now Saint) Serra:  Serra was first and foremost an evangelist seeking to convert everyone he came in contact with.  Conversion to the Catholic Faith was his passion and driving force and can be seen in all of his writings.  Many of the descendants of the mission era native peoples were converted to Catholicism and baptized by Fr. Serra or his fellow friars.  Many of these same people have fallen away from the Church for a lot of reasons just like other peoples.  Perhaps the Church could make a more concerted effort to welcome these descendants back into the Church and welcome them as part of the Church and its mission roots.
  5. The Church Should Be Respectful:  The Church and the Spanish founded the San Diego Mission in 1769.  Recently, in Pacific Grove, California, a local member an early Esselen tribe was exhumed and the remains were found to be over 5,000 years old.  Understand that the native peoples may look at the mission lands as their own and respect their right to do so.  They are not going to take the lands back!”

Before Pope Francis takes himself too seriously regarding Native People Policy by others, perhaps a little papal introspection may be helpful.  He is ignoring a whole civilization who no longer are practicing Catholics and feel that their Church has abandoned them.   It is easy to criticize others but you better make sure your house is in order first.

Note to Congress-We The People Are Watching You-Protect Trump or Else

Trump Sign-WYSISYGOpen Letter to Republican Senators and Representatives (and “conservative” pundits)

Dear Republican Senators and Representatives:

Just a friendly reminder of who we are, and what we have done for you.  Conversely, who we are, and what we can do TO YOU.

  1.  In 2010, you said that if we gave you the House of Representatives, you would stop Obamacare via the purse strings and stop Obama from shoving his hard Progressive Left down our throats.  We Gave You the House, and you did nothing.
  2. In 2014, you said that if we gave you the House of Representatives and the Senate, you would stop Obamacare via the purse strings and stop Obama from shoving his hard Progressive Left down our throats.  We Gave You the House and the Senate and you did nothing.
  3. In 2016, you said that if we gave you the House of Representatives and the Senate, you would stop Obamacare via the purse strings and stop Obama from shoving his hard Progressive Left down our throats.  We Gave You the House, the Senate and the Presidency, and now you are trying to emasculate our President and kill OUR agenda!

This is a not so subtle warning to McCain, McConnell and the House Leadership;  you all better rally behind Trump and his agenda or you will have hell to pay in 2018.  Your little party will be over.  We have had it with your stupid games that have left us bankrupt, futureless, and our nation basically in a state of a third world nation.

We have serious problems that transcend your meaningless position of power and your selfish, self aggrandizing misuse of the position we GAVE YOU.  Trump is our only chance to take back this country once and for all.  If you succeed in bringing Trump down, you bring down the hopes and dreams of our founders and now we the people who have given you everything you asked for! 

Our Freedom and our very lives are at stake.  We do not have anything left to lose.

Grow a pair and Stand Behind We the People and our President, Donald J. Trump.

McCain Should be Impeached for Sedition

mccain-sedition

Sedition:  Conduct or Speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state…

The Progressive Left (P/L) has been joined by Senators McCain, Graham, and other insiders to bash Trump and discredit his administration at every turn and to thwart the will of the people.

The resignation of Army Lieutenant General Flynn as the head of the National Security Agency, gave McCain and his progressive, anti-Trump Neo-Cons another opportunity to bash Trump but worse, to question the condition of our Nation’s national security team and its capabilities.

This, at a time, when we have a new President, the bad actors in the world are looking for a chink in Trump’s armor in order to take down this nation.  McCain’s actions and rhetoric are a text-book case of Sedition as he joins the P/L to take down our Government.

McCain and Graham see Trump as more of the enemy than North Korea, Iran, Syria and others and are obsessed with Russia and the left’s fabrication of Trump’s “relationship” with Putin.  This is a classic case of paranoia fed by personal animus over Trump’s past comments about McCain.  Trump has tried to put this feud be him but McCain continues to fuel this silly fight to the detriment of our nation.  McCain may have been a war hero years ago but that does not give him a free pass to out our nation at risk.

McCain, Graham, and other republican senators and representatives are classic examples of why we need term limits.  Their own personal interests and views take precedence over the nation’s interests or the will of the people.

They refuse to see our elections as the will of the people and join the P/L in their insane quest to de-legitimize the Trump Presidency.  They are stoking the fires of discontent and are by their own actions engaging in Seditious behavior worthy of impeachment.

“Never argue with Stupid People. They will Drag You Down to Their Level and then Beat you with Experience.” –Mark Twain

Image result for argue with an idiot

Ever try to reason with a Progressive/Liberal (P/L), or is it Liberal/Progressive?  If you have, please reread the title if this article by Mark Twain, take two aspirin, and go to bed, NOW!

The first thing a P/L will do is start quoting talking points taken from Move-On.Org or another Soros website.  Then if you rebut their point, they will back up their assertions using another left-wing website as a source.  Not too dissimilar to CNN!  Or if things get really dicey, they will quote their oracle of truth, http://www.Snopes.com!  Another “fact checker” controlled by a P/L.

Then, if all of that fails to win you over, they invoke the “ist”, “ism” or “phobe” monikers on you.  You become a racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobe, xenophobic,  or say you engage in sexism, racism, or you are a racistismphobe!  Sounds like a Nancy Pelosi-ism! 

I think I am going to make a Tee-Shirt with the word, STUPIDPHOBE written on it.  (If I really want to raise their blood pressure, I will put #MAGA on the shirt as well!)  Whenever a P/L attempts to dissuade my views or attacks my moral compass, I will merely point to my Tee-Shirt and say Bless You! 

t-shirt

Invoking God is another tactic of a P/L.  Now this is really rich as they are pro-death baby killers who think Gosnell was just eccentric and that Margaret Sanger really did not believe in eugenics and that the culling out of non-whites was not really in her writings.   The P/L will invoke God to sell their illogical views on unlimited and unrestrained immigration, wealth redistribution as being charity, and abortion as being compassionate. 

Finding truth today is elusive at best and requires a lot of due diligence to sort the wheat from the chaff.  First of all, seldom believe stories based on a “reliable source” or an unnamed spokesperson for …, etc.  If someone is not willing to put their name on the line then the line should not be taken seriously.  Secondly, when it comes to President Trump, if the words did not come from his mouth, his twitter account, or from Kellyanne Conway, then they are probably not true.  Whether you like the President or not, he is not bashful and seldom filters his words, spoken or written.  Kellyanne is one of the closest allies he has, other than family, and is privy to the goings-on of the inner sanctum of this administration.  Thirdly, if you see more than one network opining on a point using exactly the same phraseology, turn off your TV.  These are P/L talking points and most likely Fake or contrived “news”.

Finally, many of you jump the gun when the Speaker, the Senate Majority Leader, or another Republican or RINO says something stupid like demeaning President Trump or one of his actions.  Let me leave you with a final Mark Twain quote to remember when this occurs: 

“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” –Mark Twain

President Trump’s Immigration Pause Was Designed to Be A Surprise Move-Judiciary Mucked It Up!

defeated-by-judiciary

If You Tell Terrorist they will be Banned in Two, Weeks, Guess What They will Do?

Image result for surprise

Trump Campaigned On Not Signaling His Foreign Policy Execution

“Conservative” pundits and elected officials have blamed President Trump’s lack of communication or his haste in implementing his pause on immigration from the 7 terror torn nations as the reason for the backlash.  Really?  President Trump signed and immediately implemented the Executive Order (EO) banning entry into the US for a specified period of time from the 7 nations IN ORDER TO SURPRISE THE WOULD BE TERRORIST “IMMIGRANTS” FROM GETTING IN BEFORE THE RESTRICTIONS WERE PUT IN PLACE.  Duh!  President Trump campaigned saying he would NOT tell the enemy what he was going to do before he acted and allow the enemy to use the time to strike or counteract his actions!  Period!

Brian Kilmeade, Fox and Friends, has been especially insistent that President Trump did not adequately prepare the American People for he EO ban.  Baloney.  We The People knew the ban was coming and knew Trump would not telegraph the implementation in order to maintain the element of surprise.  Trump was spot on in the manner in which he rolled out the ban.  So what if a few people, 109, were detained for a few hours or inconvenienced in some other way.  Ask the families of 9/11 victims and other acts of terror if they would have minded if the terrorist who murdered their loved ones would have been inconvenienced rather than allowed in unfettered.

President Trump’s Tactic Will Be Proven Correct

Now that Judge Robart and the 9th Circuit have interrupted the pause and have reopened travel to the 7 terror nations, the terrorist have to be lining up to get in before President Trump’s pause is rightfully reinstated or President Trump issues a new EO in place of the current pause EO.

By the time President Trump’s appeal hits the Supreme Court, President Trump’s team will most likely have finished coming up with the New Extreme Vetting procedures.  It is also a risk going to SCOTUS with an 8 person bench.  A 4-4 tie would leave the lower court restraining order in place.  If I were the President, I am not sure that I would even trust this court after Gorsuch is seated.  Kennedy, and even Roberts are a bit “iffy” and a President’s discretion in controlling who comes into this country is too important to leave to a 9 unelected person panel!

If we are attacked by someone who came in during this pause’s pause, don’t blame President Trump…

Trump, The Exorcist of the Left

In Two Weeks, Trump Is Crushing the Progressive’s Advances of the Past 40 Years

trump-exorcists

Trump has just been the President of the US for two weeks and about 8 hours as of this writing.  In a mere two weeks, President Trump has crushed the left’s promotion of illegal immigration, paused the entry of individuals from terrorist laden countries, rolled back crushing EPA and DOE regulations on American manufacturing, mining, agriculture, and small businesses, initiated the beginning of the repeal of Obamacare, slammed Iran with sanctions, worked with business leaders to keep and create new manufacturing and other jobs in the US, met with or conference called dozens of world leaders, fought to get most of his cabinet approved by the Senate, nominated a conservative judge to replace Scalia, and a plethora of other initiatives designed to wrestle this country back from the grasp of the progressive left and return it  to the people under the Rule of Law!  And he did all of this with less than half of his cabinet in place due to obstruction by the Left Wing Senators!

What is the Left’s Response?  VIOLENCE!

Protestors Bonfire

The Left displayed their true self these past two weeks by resorting to violence, ugly name calling, and even physically threatening President Trump and his family.  Don’t make the mistake and believe that the Left believes in democracy or the rule of law.  They use democracy and the rule of law as a weapon to destroy “We the People” financially, morally, and legally.  When they do not win, they resort to violence and the courts that they have packed with Leftist judges to thwart the will of the people.  Leftist progressives like George Soros fund the violence and the corrupt politicians and judges to fight to maintain globalist status quo.  Soros has a wad a cash in excess of $60 Billion so he can fund a lot of black shirt paid protestors, corrupt politicians and judges.

Trump represents the Anti-Christ to the Progressive Left!

Make no mistake, the Left will not go down easily and lose their hard-fought advances of the past.  The Left has taken over much of the main stream media (MSM) who will carry the Left’s torch against Trump and ANYONE who dares to support him.  The MSM is FAKE NEWS which makes defending the moves of this administration difficult but…  Trump’s use of social media is thwarting what would otherwise be an easy media assassination of President Trump personally as well as his policies.  He also works harder than the MSM and is up Tweeting before they even get out of bed!

I the near future, expect more violence and vitriol aimed at stopping Trump from totally reversing the Left-wing agenda that ALMOST took this country down militarily, financially, morally, and spiritually under Obama, Pelosi, Schumer and Reid.  There is a new Sheriff in town and he needs our support to truly Make America Great Again.

  A Trump failure would signal the end to our Constitutional Rule of Law as we knew it; and result in the implementation of Obama’s goal of transforming our nation by insuring that we have a mediocre military, a weak economy, and become an amoral nation.

Can the WE and the FBI Survive The Comey/Clinton Chronicles?

Image result for comey clinton

Yesterday, October 28th, James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent a letter to a select group of 16 Congressional Committee leaders, eight Republicans and eight Democrats, announcing that:

“Yesterday, the investigative team briefed me on their recommendation with respect to seeking access to emails that have recently been found in an unrelated case. Because those emails appear to be pertinent to our investigation, I agreed that we should take appropriate steps to obtain and review them.”

He went on to say that:

“At the same time, however, given that we do not know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression. In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter, and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it.”

The “unrelated case” was the investigation of Anthony Weiner, the husband of Clinton’s top aide and confidant, Huma Abedin.  Weiner adds his own level of sleaze to the Clinton scandal portfolio as he is being investigated for “sexting” with a 15-year-old minor female.  Ostensibly, the Weiner investigation led to emails sent by or forwarded from Clinton/Abedin and others.  These emails uncovered communications not yet discovered in the previous FBI Clinton Email probe.  This latter point is a legal violation of a Congressional subpoena, past FOIA requests, and the prior FBI investigation itself.

Personally, I credit an open letter sent to Director Comey from a retired FBI special agent, Hugh Galyean, following Comey’s “non-indictment indictment” of Hillary Clinton in July of this year.  In Comey’s July address, he carefully laid out a criminal case against Hillary Clinton then surprisedly announced at the end of his address that he would not be recommending any legal action to be taken against Clinton by the DOJ.  Since then, a large number of former and current FBI agents and Department of Justice prosecutors have criticized Comey’s lack of referral in the Clinton investigation.  I believe Comey succumbed to weight of being known as the FBI Director who abandoned the agencies principle for political expediency.

Enough of what I think of Comey’s past and present action or inaction.  The following is the full text of the letter from SA Galyean.  Read it for yourself, then decide if a majority of your staff, and specifically the total of the Clinton Investigation team, held this opinion of you and your actions.  Could you remain silent and take no further action?  Or, would you step up and do the right thing?  Decide for yourself…

Open Letter to Comey from Retired Agent Galyean

Mr. James Comey, Director

Federal Bureau of Investigation

J. Edgar Hoover Building

935 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W

Washington, D.C.  20535-0001

Sir,

I am writing regarding your public statement in July, 2016 informing the American people that the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton was being closed without referring it to a Federal Grand Jury or the Attorney General of the U. S. for a decision whether or not to indict her. Strangely, you eloquently laid out enough of the evidence deduced from the investigation to strongly indicate there was abundant evidence uncovered during the investigation and interview of her to not only indict but to convict her in  Federal Court.­­­­­­­ ­­­­­­However, you personally  re-worded and soft-pedaled the actions she took as Secretary of State describing her actions as “extremely careless” in using a personal email and un-secured server for her communications while Secretary of State. You rewrote the statute, which is not your job.

As a retired Special Agent of the FBI, I have standing to write this letter. My thirty years in law enforcement, including 22 years as a Special Agent with the FBI have given me the knowledge, expertise and experience to question and confront you for your perplexing actions, which (as you well know) were outside the normal standard operating procedure of the FBI and Federal judicial procedures. Some of the finest people in the world proudly carry the credentials of FBI Agent and you have soiled them and not allowed them to speak. But I will not be silent.

Sorry, but NO SIR, MS Clinton was not merely careless or extremely careless. She was not even negligent or grossly negligent (as the statute requires). Hillary Clinton was knowingly purposeful in her decisions and actions to set up a server under her exclusive control and possession in order to control what information was available to the American public and Congress regarding her actions as Secretary of State. Furthermore, she took those government-owned communications into her personal possession after leaving her position and knowingly and willingly attempted to destroy them so her nefarious actions could never be known or used as evidence of her corrupt moral character against her.

Sir, what possessed you? Did you cave in to political pressure to unilaterally come to this decision? I fear that is the case, and Rule of Law be damned. I am embarrassed for and ashamed of you. You have set a precedent that can never be rectified… and certainly not justified. Shame on you, Sir. You ought to resign right now in disgrace for what you have done to tarnish the reputation of the finest Law Enforcement Agency in the world… for entirely political reasons.

Normally, an investigation will be assigned to an agent, or team of agents with one being the Case agent, or the lead investigator. When the investigation is complete, an investigative report will be presented to the U.S. Attorney for the Federal District involved.  It would be the U.S. Attorney who decides whether to decline prosecution for that investigation… NOT the FBI agent. But in the Clinton investigation, YOU (unilaterally) decided not to forward the investigation to the U.S. Attorney or the Attorney General of the U.S., but instead personally made the decision not to prosecute her or even provide the information to a Federal Grand Jury.  You were wrong to take this upon yourself.

Sir, in order to indict a subject, only a preponderance of evidence, or 51% is needed for probable cause to exist. You did not think even that level of probability existed? Who do you think you are fooling? What judicial proceeding did you think you were following?

Throughout my years with the FBI, I (along with my fellow agents) took great pride in conducting each investigation in an unbiased manner regardless of the subject’s position or standing in the community.

All were treated equally under the law. But you, Sir, decided to allow this corrupt, evil and nasty human being to go free and unchallenged for her treasonous actions (yes, treasonous, in my opinion) which threatened the security of this nation. Furthermore, you stopped short of investigating the Clinton Foundation as a RICO case (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization.  This is a RICO case if

there ever were one. Even an untrained person can tell from the communications which were recovered that Hillary Clinton spent more time working for the Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State than on State Business.  It may be argued that Hillary did not do any State business UNLESS the Clinton Foundation benefitted.  You decided to just let this uncomfortable truth alone without addressing it.

I will conclude with this:  Following my retirement from the FBI, I volunteered for a 12 month tour of duty in Afghanistan as a Law Enforcement Professional, embedded with U.S. forces as a subject matter expert in counter-terrorism investigations.  For most of that year I operated “outside the wire” patrolling with the troops, interviewing witnesses to IED incidents and gathering evidence on the bad guys.  The results of my work would then be reported through secure channels to the Commanding Officer.  All reports and communications were required to be transmitted via secure and encrypted devices.  Occasionally my remote location in the mountains of Afghanistan made transmission impossible and I would have to fly back to Bagram Air Base in order to securely report to the Commander of the battle space.   It would have been convenient if I could have just called the Commander on my personal cell phone or written him an email on my personal laptop.  But, had I done so I would have been reporting classified information via an unsecured device and it could have been compromised. These were, relative to Secretary of State communications, low-level classifications of Secret.  Had I ever sent even one in such a manner I would have been prosecuted and sent to Federal Prison for 20 years or so.  That is how serious this violation is considered.

Now, because of you, Hillary Clinton is allowed to continue her RICO activities and is running for President of the United States, the most powerful position in the world.  You have trampled on the Rule of Law and destroyed the trust of the American people in the FBI and in unbiased enforcement of the law.  How do you sleep at night? It is time for you to go and work for the Clinton Foundation.

Sincerely,

Hugh W. Galyean

(FBI Agent, Retired)

 

Your decision on November. 

Do you want 4 more years of the Clinton’s, Abedin, and Weiner lawlessness and stain on the highest office of the United States? 

It is time to

Drain the Swamp!

Attacking Our Military! Leftist Globalist Attempt to Lower Our Preparedness

US National Guard Troops Defrauded Out Of “Signing Bonus”

to Keep Troop Levels up in Iraq and Afghanistan

Easy Fix for their Commander-In-Chief But He Is MIA!

 

troops-defauded

In 2006 and 2007, National Guard Troops were offered $15,000 to re-enlist for an additional 6 Year tour.  That is a “Whopping” $2,500 per year to take a chance on being killed or maimed.  There were other programs that would also help pay off student loans that the soldiers had accumulated. 

Then, in 2010,  our brilliant federal government bureaucracy audited the bonus programs and found that the soldiers either did not qualify for the bonuses or did not fill out the paperwork!  But, their superiors granted the Bonuses and the Soldiers served their time!  PERIOD. 

To add “insult to audit”, threatening Dunning letters were sent to our troops demanding repayment or their wages would be garnered, their tax refunds would be snatched, their property seized, or all of the above.  This by bureaucrats who have probably never even seen a combat boot let alone be in combat and risk their life! 

To Put This in Perspective,

the Total the Government is Trying to Snatch Back From

Our Troops is $150,000,000. 

Our Wonderful Congress Costs Us About

$107,000,000 PER YEAR Plus Expenses Which Triples This Amount! 

How are the Troops Going To Get Their 6 Years Back?

The horror stories by our troops is unimaginable.  Master Sergeant Susan Haley said she got the first collection letter from the government in 2012 while she was at a Texas military hospital visiting her son, an Army medic whose leg had been blown off in Afghanistan.  Great way to say thank you to a family who has given so much.  Haley still owes the government $20,500 and has been making a $650 per month payment (25% of her total income).  She is now unable to make her payments.  Haley stated that she will try to pay back the money but that she will never get back the six extra years she gave the Army.  There are hundreds of similar stories.

How Can This Happen?

I believe that this travesty was caused by first of all a dumb mistake by the Bush Administration then a deliberate attempt by the Obama Administration to demoralize our troops to drive down enlistment numbers!  Yes, the California National Guard gave the order to the auditors to recoup the money that erroneously APPROVED for the soldiers, but there is no way this did not go to the top, the Commander-In-Chief and his staff before the recovery program was initiated.  This money would have been initially reimbursed or paid by the federal government, not the State of California.  No bureaucrat is going to go out on a limb without someone covering his rear-end. 

Why would Obama want to demoralize the military?  The left hates the volunteer army and is constantly trying to make a case for reinstating the draft for “social justice” reasons.  Also, Obama used the budgeting process to decimate the military funding via the sequester agreement thus sending a signal to the troops that he is not supporting them financially.  Obama’s rules of engagement in Iran and Afghanistan have forced our troops to be human targets and not engage in many dangerous situations that are life threatening and further demoralized our troops knowing that optics trump their safety.  Finally, the Leftist Globalists have to weaken the US military to make it ineffective in stopping their global realignment via supporting insurrection, fomenting civil wars, and forcing global open immigration.

The US Military is the only barrier to the West loosing its grip on social order around the world.  The Leftist Globalists thrive on disorder as they create turmoil then sweep in and gobble up the world treasure at basement prices.  Don’t think so, just look at what Soros and Buffet made off of the 2008 recession when they bought up billions in banking and securities assets at pennies on the dollar.  With global oil and other resources at stake, the degradation of our military is paramount in the minds of these enemies.

This is not a conspiracy theory, it is a regurgitation of their policy as it applies to all events that they can use to achieve their goals of global dominance.

Obama Could Stop the Harassment of Our Troops by a Stoke of His Well Worn Pen, But he Won’t

Congress Could Come Back in an Emergency Session and Stop this Harrassment, But they Won’t

Priorities Anyone!

Why Trump Called Out False Accusers at Gettysburg

Democrats Have Overplayed the

Sex Card to Cover their Own Sins,

And Keep the Campaigns OFF OF THE ISSUES

Latest Trump Accuser

Right-wing pundits cringed and Left-Wing pundits delighted yesterday when Trump prefaced his “Gettysburg Address” with the threat to sue anyone coming forward falsely accusing him of sexual misconduct. 

Right-wing pundits thought Trump stepped on his message where he laid out 28 steps that he included in his “Contract With the American Voters”.  But, these right-wing pundits need to see Trump’s condemnation of these women, sought out and egged on by the Democrats and their hack Gloria Allred, who have falsely accused him as part of Trump’s overall corruption message.  (See our post on Trump’s “Contract with the American Voter” at http://wp.me/pY51c-12Y)

The system is rigged because Democrats seek women who are willing to make up stories about Republican Presidential and Congressional candidates allegedly engaging in sordid affairs.  They did this to George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, John McCain, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and now Donald Trump.  They have been able to force candidates out of races entirely (Ask Herman Cain) just because they did not have the resources to fight these despicable practices or did not want to drag their families through the sludge.  No so, Donald J. Trump!

Trump is fighting to get these sensational, false sexual allegations by Democrats out of our Presidential Elections FOR all future Republican Candidates!

The “Swamp” includes these Political Practices of False Sexual Allegations!

Trump Tweaks the Media:  From a Media Management perspective, Trump always play the MSM with something that they will run with that the MSM thinks will hurt Trump.  Trump has to do this because the MSM will NOT cover his substantive messages so he inserts his substantive message inside of a sensational CAPSULE of news.  The MSM jumps on these capsules and by day 3 Trump’s real message dribbles out bit by bit.  Otherwise the real messages would not see the light of day!  Do you really think the New York Times or the Washington Post would have put Trump’s Contract with the American Voters on the front page above the fold with a glowing headline!  Never happen! 

It is a terrible way to have to run a substantive campaign but Republican candidates have no choice. 

Trump is the first Republican Candidate to be media savvy and able to turn the tables on the MSM and using his expertise in the use of social media to counteract media bias!  Trump knows that in some circles that this strategy will hurt him but you have to fight with the cards that are dealt.  His hope is that even his honest detractors can see through the fog of Democrat political corruption.  Unfortunately for Trump, Right-wing pundits and the Republican Global Elitist join in with the Democrat party and their MSM puppets to slam Trump!  Trump is literally running against the entire Global Elitist Cabal and only the American People can Protect him and then ultimately their own future as Americans.  

Melania Signaled The Lawsuit Strategy

Melania Trump was interviewed after the last debate by Fox and Friends’ Ainsley Earhardt. (video attached below) Melania challenged the women who were falsely alleging unwanted sexual advances by Donald Trump to take their case to the courts and file appropriate actions rather than prosecute their case in the media.  Melania had just previously sent a formal letter to People Magazine demanding that they retract and take down stories of her as being an Escort dearly in her career or face a lawsuit.  People retracted their false claims. 

If Republicans do not stand up for themselves, just imagine how weak they will be defending YOU, who they really do not care about!

If a women is assaulted in any way, she should seek legal remedies.  If they are falsely accusing another person, they SHOULD BE PROSECUTED OR SUED FOR DAMAGES!

Trump may have used his lawsuit capsule to get media coverage, but this strategy will eventually get his “Gettysburg Address” to more people via social media and his rallies.  The political pundits will just have to take more Maalox! 

PS:  Don’t get discouraged by the Polls.  On October 28, 1980, the Gallup poll had Jimmy Carter ahead of Reagan by 8 points.  Reagan beat Carter a week later by 10 points.  The pollsters, even the Fox News Polls, over-poll Democrats over Republicans.  Closer to the election, they adjust their mix to more accurately reflect the “mood” of the people and the likelihood of real people actually voting.  Trump’s 30,000 person rallies versus a couple of hundred showing up for Clinton are telling.  These are real people coming out for Trump who will vote…
