Trump’s DACA Meeting Trumped Conservatives and Liberals! Killed “Fire and Fury” Narrative

The Art of the Deal Lives On!

See the source image

Yesterday you witnessed a brilliant political move by President Trump when he sequestered Democrats and Republicans in his cabinet room and spent 55 minutes in front of national press cameras allowing both sides to state their positions on DACA, the wall, border security, chain migration and the lottery visa program.  After 10 minutes, it seemed that the participants forgot the cameras were rolling and they started sparing over immigration issues ranging from border security to comprehensive immigration reform that would include amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens.  It was pure mastery of the media and a showcase of how to completely change the narrative from the anti-Trump “Fire and Fury” book to how presidential Trump looked in bringing all sides together to discuss a contentious issue.  

Trump used this forum to drive home the following issues:

  1. That Trump will consider a DACA solution ONLY if it INCLUDES the wall, border security changes outlined by Secretary of DHS Kirstjen Nielsen, end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery program.
  2. Any DACA deal will be a separate vote from the budget vote.  
  3. Trump allowed the Democrats to drive home their requirement that DACA NOT include the wall, border security changes outlined by Secretary of DHS Kirstjen Nielsen, end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery program.
  4. Trump put the onus of dealing with DACA squarely on the House and Senate and that he would support whatever legislation that is passed.

For those who think that Trump’s statement to sign whatever legislation comes out of the Congressional deliberations was a sell out, remember:

  1. The President spent last weekend with Republican Congressional leadership and hammered out the 2018 legislative agenda. 
  2. This agenda included separating DACA from the upcoming government budget vote;
  3. This agenda included a DACA agreement that would include the wall, border security changes outlined by Secretary of DHS Kirstjen Nielsen, end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery program.

So, when the President convened the bi-partisan bicameral meeting yesterday, he already knew that the Republican leadership had committed to the President’s agenda!  Even if the Democrats try to severe the DACA legislation components and exclude the wall, border security, chain migration, and the visa lottery program, the Republican majorities could vote them down.  

Also, remember, Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senate WILL NOT change the voting rules and allow either of these bills to pass the Senate with a simple majority.  This means that the budget and DACA bills will both require 60 votes to pass. 

It is difficult to imagine that DACA, with the wall, border security changes outlined by Secretary of DHS Kirstjen Nielsen, end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery program, will pass anyway! 

  • This will put the onus of not dealing with the DACA enrollees square on the back of the Democrats. 
  • Also, if the Democrats do not step up and fund the government, the government shut down will be square on the back of the Democrats!

Still think Donald J. Trump does not understand the art of the deal and is not committed to his hard-line on border security!  Think again!

How Trump Will Save Social Security and Lower the Deficit

See the source image

Where Does President Trump Find the Money?

Will Congress Cooperate?

President Donald Trump has been speaking about creating a balanced budget economy for years.  He totally “gets” the numbers, the contributors to the deficit, and the drivers of achieving a balanced budget.  Contrary to most “Never Trumpers” and RINO elites, the President’s economic plan is absolutely Fiscally CONSERVATIVE and achievable. 

The President’s plan is based on growing and sustaining the growth of the US Economy, Period.

Trump has laid out his overall economic plan via his speeches, Tweets, and past interviews.  Below are the key elements of the Trump “America First” Economic Plan:

  • Massive Reduction in Regulations
  • Unfettered US Energy Expansion
  • Tax Cuts and Tax Reform
  • Education Reform
  • Repeal & Replace Obamacare
  • Infrastructure Upgrade
  • Welfare Reform
  • Immigration Reform
  • Budget Cuts

Saving Social Security, Medicare and the reduction in the national debt will be discussed at the end of the plan.  This is due to the need to re-establish our economy, re-educate our citizens, and make many systemic changes to existing programs and budgets.  The results of the Trump America First Economic Plan will be the saving of Social Security, Medicare and a reduction in the national debt and the establishment of ongoing balanced budgets!

Massive Reduction in Regulations and Unfettered US Energy Expansion:

President Trump has long-held that in order for the US economy to grow, you must remove the boot of the government regulators from the throat of business entities.  Secondly, low-cost energy is the key to driving business expansion and reducing the costs of goods and services as well as lower direct energy costs to consumers.  To date, in 11 months, President Trump has rolled back over 1,000 business killing regulations and instituted a 2:1 regulation reduction where any new regulation must be met with the elimination of two existing regulations.  Further, he has opened up more inland and off-shore drilling areas and is working with Congress to open up the vast Alaska reserves in ANWAR.  President has laid the regulatory and energy foundation to support a strong America First economy.  Trump’s regulation rollbacks and pro-energy policies have propelled the DOW to a gain of 6,000 points since his election and have added trillions to the stock value of US companies.

Tax Cuts & Tax Reform:

President Trump is a pure Reagan/Kennedy hawk when it comes to the use of tax cuts to drive increases in tax revenues and the need to keep the tax code as simple as possible.  He believes that tax cuts stimulate the economy in stark contrast to the Obama administration’s belief that bigger government and higher taxes drive the economy.  President Trump laid out his tax and reform principles and the House and Senate have both passed their version of the Trump Tax cuts.  Now, it is up to the combined House and Senate conference committees to unify the chambers and pass a compromise tax bill that adheres to the Trump guidelines.

The impact of the tax cuts should be dramatic based on past tax cuts.  When Reagan cut taxes in the 1980’s, he created 15 million new jobs and DOUBLED the tax revenues!  Current projections are that federal tax revenues for 2018 (ending October, 2018) will be 3.654 (half are from income taxes)  without the tax cuts.  Since the tax cuts will only be effect for 10 months, assuming passage in the next few days, the tax revenues may not increase significantly in 2018.  But, by the end of 2020. tax revenues should increase by at least 1.5 Trillion dollars.  That would raise the total revenues to about 5.2 Trillion with at least 10 million+ new jobs added.  Similar increases in revenue will be seen for Social Security and Medicare.

Education Reform:

Trump’s education plan is an integral part of America First and is vital to providing literate and educated Americans to fill the anticipated new jobs created through regulation and tax reform.  Education reform is also integral to Trump’s plan to raise those trapped in poverty in our inner-cities into the American mainstream.

Trump’s plan includes decentralizing education from the Federal Government to the States and local school boards.  Further, that School Choice be at the forefront of the education reform, especially for inner-city children who are trapped in Progressive-Left public schools.  The Secretary of Education is a School Choice proponent who has spent her entire career, and invested personally, in charter and other forms of alternative educational providers.  Ms. DeVos will also seek to return the curriculum to the basics reduce illiteracy rates, and re-emphasize STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) courses.  

Without improving our educational systems and graduating capable students, the economic outlook for the US is bleak and pressure politicians to supplement our workforce with foreign nationals.  This would be ridiculous as our citizens are more than capable of being educated and lead this nation to new heights of US predominance.

Repeal & Replace Obamacare:

This is a sore subject but the reason the repeal and replace is that it is vital to increasing revenues, decreasing taxes and regulations on 1/6th of the economy!  There are billions in hidden costs that Obamacare added to the cost of healthcare in the form of taxes on pharmaceuticals, medial devices and private citizens via mandates.  Further, Obamacare diverts trillions of dollars over a decade from consumer pockets to support a failed healthcare environment.  Also, the 860 Billion dollars that was diverted from Medicare to Obamacare has to be returned to Medicare to keep it solvent over the long haul.

Think of Obamacare as a drag on every sector in our economy as it raises healthcare costs on individuals, small businesses, and large corporations while adding nothing to the quality of medicine.

Infrastructure Upgrade:

The President departs from some conservatives when he touts his proposed $1 Trillion dollar infrastructure plan.  But, conservatives should look a little deeper and see that the President envisions a public-private partnership, read cost sharing, arrangement to pour private sector dollars into the plan.  Further, he believes that if enacted as he proposed, his tax plan should bring back into the US about $3.5 Trillion dollars in parked offshore corporation profits that should yield about $350 Billion in taxes that would otherwise not have been collected.  The President sees these dollars as the public sector’s ante to improve US infrastructure without blowing a hole in the budget and adding significantly to the deficit.  Before jumping off of the fiscal bridge, remember that this program will not be completed in one or even two years. The infrastructure project will consume all of Trump’s first term and maybe more.

Keep in mind that President Trump is a builder.  He is used to the concept that when he was trying to build a building, he had to foot the costs for sidewalks, road improvement, water, sewage etc.  He will certainly negotiate with the private sector to invest in our infrastructure with every expansion project and new business development.  

Welfare Reform: (Does not include Social Security and Medicare which are not welfare programs)

President Trump surprised those who have not been with him from the beginning of his candidacy, with an announcement that he will be pursuing welfare reform with Congress in 2018!  There are approximately 68 million Americans receiving some form of Government assistance today (including those drawing unemployment)!  67% of those receiving welfare benefits stay on welfare for at least 1 year while 20% ( of million people) of those have been on welfare for more than 5 years. 

Trump’s corporate and small business tax cuts are key to welfare reform and his “Welfare to Work” plans.  Welfare reform cannot be fully effective until there are jobs to absorb those leaving welfare and entering the workplace.  

Trump’s education reforms are also key to welfare reform as our economy is dependent on a literate and educated workforce.  While improvements in education for the minority inner-cities will take time, it is critical to begin the education reform as soon as possible.  Secretary of Education DeVos is currently making as many regulatory changes as possible to make education choice more available to inner-city minorities.  It will take Congressional action to expand school choice and move rapidly away from a centralized educational system to a State centric educational system.

Welfare reform is also a key to Trump’s raising the opportunity potential for minorities as Blacks, who represent 12% of the US population make up 39.6% of the welfare recipients.  Trump’s plan to improve the lives of minorities is only possible through welfare reform and providing substantive employment for minorities trapped in poverty.  

If President Trump can cut welfare spending by 20%, which should be attainable, he can reduce the welfare costs by $14 Billion per year!  Those returning to work, will also become tax payers and pay payroll taxes in support of social security and Medicare and possibly even income taxes.

Immigration Reform:

Immigration reform is vital to the US for several reasons:  One, to keep illegal immigration from directly lowering wages for US citizens; Two, to only allow immigrants into the US who can add value to our economy; Three, to not allow criminal aliens or terrorists into our country via an open border and who endanger the lives of US citizens; Four, to stop drug and human trafficking; Five,  To substantially reduce the roughly $115 Billion in costs to support illegal immigrants living in the US, less the amount of taxes collected from illegal aliens. .  This includes $45.9 Billion in Federal spending and $89 Billion in State and local spending.

Budget Cuts: 

Trump is proposing a Trillion Dollar reduction, $1,000,000,000,000, in the Federal Budget over 10 years.  A 3 Trillion dollar budget was the norm until Bush and Obama came along!  This equates to a $100 Billion budget reduction per year.  Trump is proposing a significant reduction in the federal bureaucracy in all functions of government and a significant rollback in welfare and discretionary spending via head count reductions.  If the Trump tax plan generates the economic growth that is expected, there should be no need to cut Social Security and Medicare due to increased contributions from  the 16-20+ million new jobs that will have been created.

The president will add to his cuts the savings from the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, immigration reform, welfare reform, and other program realignments and deregulation.  It is interesting to note that the conservative host of the Ingraham Angle on Fox news, Laura Ingraham, tweeted that Trump should hurry to fill the Whitehouse open staff positions so he can be more efficient.  Trump Tweeted back that he had no intention of filling many of the federal positions in order to reduce costs and streamline the federal bureaucracy including his own staff!  That is how you get federal spending inline!

It is a game changer with a business man in the Whitehouse!

Conclusion:  Saving Social Security, Medicare and Reducing the Debt!

For some odd reason, our elected officials have not figured out that if you have a retirement plan, or a healthcare plan, like social security and Medicare, it is good to have as many people paying into the plan as possible.  DUH!  Therefore, any effort you can exert to increase the number of participants, also known as private sector employees, should be accomplished every single day.  If tax cuts stimulate employment, and creates more employees paying payroll taxes, then you should implement deep cuts as soon as possible!

For some odd reason, our elected officials have not figured out that if you owe a lot of money, you should do everything you can to increase your revenue and decrease your spending!  Stop the interest expense bleeding!  So, if you owe a lot of money, and tax cuts can increase your revenue, then you cut taxes.  If you are spending more than you are taking in, then you cut spending!  There, we are done, we can go home and fire Congress!

Social Security today has a SURPLUS of $2.8 Trillion dollars that is earning a paltry 2.3% per year.  Social Security payments to retirees exceed the amount of Social Security contributions by about $90 Billion per year.  The shortfall includes both social security retirement payments as well as disability payments that have ballooned during the Obama years. 

If Trump’s America First Economic Plan kicks in as expected, we should add a minimum of 16-20 million new workers in the next 3-4 years.  Assuming that 10 million of these workers earn $50,000 per year and 6 million earn $100,000 per year, the Social Security fund would add $600 billion over the next 10 years even at a paltry 4% interest return.  By the end of 2024, with continued employment gains, the Social Security fund would be virtually self-sustaining.

The Federal debt today is 20.6 Trillion dollars!  President Trump understands that his economic plan is not an instant fix and will take 2+ years to totally kick in.  This also assumes that Congress does not raise taxes later nor spends wildly like under Reagan.  President Trump constantly reminds everyone that the US GDP is increasing and should exceed 3.5% in the fourth quarter.  Why is this important?  For every percent rise in GDP, $2.5 Trillion dollars are added to the GDP.  During the Obama years, GDP growth only averaged 1.075%.  (Bush was only slightly better)  In the last 20 years of the 20th century, GDP growth averaged 3.4%!  If President Trump can merely match the last 20 years of the 20th century, he will add $5.8 Trillion to our GDP!  Tax revenues will also increase proportionally and provide funding for NON ENTITLEMENT programs such as Social Security and Medicare!

Couple of final thoughts.  Social Security and Medicare funds are required to be invested in only government securities that have terrible yields, 2% in 2016.  If The Social Security and Medicare funds were invested in a safe S&P 500 fund, it would have averaged 9.9% over the past 40 years.  If the phoneys in Congress try to say that this would be too risky, it is an admission that they can not responsibly manage this country and its economy.  If they are really scared, they could put an automatic trigger in place that if the S&P yield fell below 2%, the funds would be invested again in Government Securities, or, any shortfalls would be reimbursed out of general funds during the shortfall periods.  Slim chance!

Secondly, why are public employees EXEMPTED from paying into social security?  This takes a large pool of social security contributions out of the fund and for what reason?  Congress should change this immediately and make the government and its employees subject to the same retirement systems!

Consider this:  If you are receiving around $2,300/month from Social Security today, you would be receiving $12,000/month if the funds had been invested in S&P 500 funds.  And Congress thinks that we the people are not smart enough to do the math?  Entitlement reform should not include Social Security and Medicare.  These two programs were paid for by taxpaying employees and their employers and it is not their fault that our government is a poor money manager.

Merry Christmas and Thank You President Trump for pushing through the passage of our Tax Cuts!

Ryan, Trillion Dollar Stab in Trump’s Supporters Back!

Ryan Risking Future of GOP

Never Turn Your Back on a RINO!

Speaker Ryan seems hell-bent on driving the Republican Party back to its comfortable position of being an opposition party! 

His trillion-dollar plus Continuing Resolution today literally and figuratively ignited Trump’s base that was instrumental in keeping the GOP majority in the House and giving the GOP the majority in the Senate in 2016. 

Trump and GOP congressional voters relied on Ryan being honorable and sticking to the campaign pledges that saved their bacon in 2016.  Instead, Ryan stabbed Trump and his supporters in the back by:

  • Not Defunding Planned Parenthood.
  • Not Providing  Any Funding for Trump’s Southern Boarder Wall.
  • Not Adding Language to Take Away Funding for Sanctuary Cities.
  • Not Providing Substantial Additions to Beef Up Our Military!
  • Not Delivering a “Readable” Bill!  Instead this PORKER BILL is over 1,600 Pages Long!  Ryan Is Only Allow Lawmakers 72 Hours to Read this Traitorous Piece of Crap!


Democrats Dumfounded that Ryan and the GOP Congress are So Spineless!

Why Win Elections?  The GOP will Surrender Anyway!


While Trump has to work with the GOP RINOs, he may as well admit that they will do everything to defeat him and his agenda.  Ryan and the donor class are showing Trump that “Theirs is bigger than His”!

Trump better mount the Bully Pulpit Image result for Trump's bully pulpitand call out Ryan and this travesty now or he can kiss off successfully Repealing and Replacing Obamacare, building the wall, rebuilding the military, or driving through his tax and budget plans.

US Senate Should Abolish the 60 Vote Cloture/Filibuster Rules

Senate Filibuster and Cloture Vote Rules = Tyranny of the Minority!

The Senate’s use of a filibuster or the cloture vote to stop a filibuster, IS NOT IN THE US CONSTITUTION!  It is simply a Senate “rule” that was created by the Senate itself.  

Most US Citizens believe that a majority vote in the House or Senate should be the standard for passing legislation. 

They believe that


in a democracy should be the guiding principle. 


Did you know that the word “filibuster” comes from a Dutch word meaning PIRATE?

Why should a minority of Senators be able to thwart the “WILL OF THE PEOPLE”?  When the people elect a majority of Senators from one political party or ideology, the people expect that the elected majority in the Senate should prevail over the minority.  IF you believe that the minority’s rights are greater than the majority’s rights then should the passing of any legislation by the Senate be approved by 100%, 99%, 90%, 75%, 66% of the senators?  In essence, the current Senate Rule 22 requiring 60 votes to close debate puts control of the Senate in the minority, not the elected majority on regular legislation.

Historical Perspective:

The Senate rule allowing for a filibuster was first adopted by the Senate in 1806 but first used later in 1837.   In 1917, the Senate adopted a rule, (Rule 22), that provided that a filibuster could be stopped by a vote of 2/3rds of the Senate.  The 2/3rds vote requirement remained until 1975. 

During this period, the Southern Democrat Senators used the high 2/3rds vote threshold to block the Civil Rights Act of 1964, including anti-lynching legislation,  until cloture was finally invoked after a 60 day filibuster. 

In 1975, the Senate modified its cloture rule allowing for a vote of 3/5ths (60 votes) to stop a filibuster.   In 2013 the Senate changed the cloture vote to a simple majority for non SCOTUS judicial appointments. Then, in 2017, the rules were changed for even SCOTUS appointments.

Voting in the Senate should be the same as in the House of Representatives where the simple majority vote carries the issue.

Hiding Behind Senate Rules:

The other obscenity that is created with the phony 60 vote majority to end debate and pass the legislation is when the party who controls lets say 52 votes puts a bill on the floor knowing full well that the minority will block cloture and force the bill to die without a vote.  Then those in the majority strut about saying well we tried by XYZ minority blocked us. 

In more concrete terms, Obamacare repeal votes took place countless times when the Republicans knew full well that the legislation would be blocked by the Senate or Obama.  House Speaker Paul Ryan also hides behind Senate Rules when he re-crafted the Obamacare Repeal and Replace blaming Senate Rules as the reason he had to water down and stage the replacement. 

Democrat Vs Republican:

Republicans wring their hands when us regular folks tell them to do away with the 60 vote cloture rule and vote up or down on everything based solely on a simple majority.  Leadership says that when Democrats are in power they will use this power against Republican and ram legislation through.  

Obama taught us that these insane legislative rules with their false majorities are inconsequential and should be predicated on a simple majority vote.  When Obama lost the majority in the House and Senate, he merely ignored the legislative and judicial branches and ruled by fiat.   If the Republicans did pass a bill, they knew Obama would veto it! 

So, it did not matter what the Republican majority was in the Senate or the House.  Both parties use these rules to hide behind.  The use of these faux votes to prove to their constituencies that they are fighting for them is ludicrous.  We are not THAT dumb!


Do Away with Senate Rule 22 Requiring 60 Votes to Close a Debate;

Man-up; and Vote and Be Accountable!

We The People are Not Fooled!

KKK Leader Rule Still Hamstrings American Voters Wishes

Image result for robert byrd kkk

Robert Byrd:  The Byrd Rule was named after former Klansman and US Senator Robert Byrd.  The Byrd Rule basically laid out the rules surrounding what could and could not be included in “budget reconciliation” and where specific inclusions could be subject to the 60 Vote cloture procedure in the Senate.  It was a further move to insure that a 40% minority in the Senate could thwart the will of the people and the majority of the people’s representatives…

The bottom line, any use of the need to have 60 out of 100 Senators vote to stop debate in the Senate is asinine in the modern era.  

A simple majority of Senators, 51, should be sufficient to represent the will of the people.   This 60 vote filibuster requirement is not a part of the Constitution but merely a Senate “Rule” that was created by the Senate and can be changed or eliminated by the Senate.  The irony of the practice of requiring a 60 vote for stopping the use of filibusters to kill legislation was used extensively by Southern Democrats to kill Civil Rights Legislation!

Paul Ryan Using, or Hiding Behind the 60 Vote Rule?: 

Ostensibly, the demise of the repeal of Obamacare and the replacement of Obamacare fell prey to the 60 vote idiocy of the US Senate rules, including the bill killing Byrd Rule.  Ostensibly, the way the repeal/replacement was structured by Paul Ryan was to circumvent the arcane Senate requiring 60 votes to overcome a fake filibuster by using the Budget Reconciliation Rules of the Senate and thus prohibiting a MINORITY of Congress, specifically the Senate, to kill the Obamacare replacement. 

Was Ryan trying to use the Senate Rules to really pass a viable replacement of Obamacare or was he hiding behind the Senate Rules to insure that the RINO goals of keeping big government in charge of health care?  Only the very few members of the Ryan leadership team really know the answer. 

The sad part is that the American People, who supported the Republican take back of the House and Senate and in November of 2016 the election of Donald Trump who ran on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, are the losers.  Once again we counted on our Government to do their job and follow the will of the people.  Instead, Ryan and his cronies cow-towed to the will of big insurance, big pharma, and other interest groups to thwart the American People.

What is the Real Lesson?:

The real lesson that the American People have learned in watching this exercise of insanity is that the 60 Vote Cloture rule to end debate and allow a vote on a bill, whether subject to the budget Byrd Rule or not, has to be changed. 

We realize that the 60 vote rule does not make the Senate a great deliberative body but rather a slave to minority rule.  Period!

Same goes for confirmation of Presidential judicial appointments.  a simple 51 vote majority must be implemented or key judicial appointments can be derailed by 40 of the 100 Senators. 

The other use of the 60 vote rule is to try to hide behind a procedure to make themselves look good when they know full well that their vote is a farce.   All of the votes to repeal Obamacare by Republicans have been done with full knowledge that the Senate did not have the votes to stop a filibuster or last year’s when the House and Senate Republicans knew that Obama would veto the repeal vote.  But how many times have you seen Ryan and other puff out their chest and say that they voted to repeal Obamacare but X, Y, or Z stopped it from happening.  GET A MIRROR.  THE HOUSE AND SENATE REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVE AND RINO, HAVE ALLOWED THIS FARCE TO CONTINUE SO THEY CAN HIDE BEHIND CIRCA MID 1800’S RULES WHEN CAMPAIGNING FOR OFFICE.

Somehow, we need to force McConnell to repeal the Senate Rules to allow for majority rule.  Ryan and all Republican elected officials need to stand behind this change or nothing will ever change.

Some will say that when the Democrats are in power, they will use this Senate Rule change against us.  Where have you been the last 8 years?  The Democrats do not care about Senate Rules or the Constitution. Period!  Obama would issue an executive order and merely bypass Congress or the Constitution.  Ryan and McConnell would throw up their hands and say they don’t have the votes to overcome the Democrats. 

Enough is enough.  Trump’s agenda is OUR last chance to save this country from Progressive Rule and from the Big Donor, Big money interests that control this nation.   Obama put this country at the mercy of our sworn enemies and into the hands of the global progressive movement seats of power.

We need to stand and stand firm, NOW!

SCOTUS – Replacement for Congress?

Stop Relying on the Supreme Court to Create Law!


Gutless Wonders In Congress Shirk Their Duty to Legislate and Duck their Responsibility and the Possible Ire of their Constituents by Allowing 9 Unelected Judges to Create Law by Fiat!


It is the Job of Congress Alone

U.S. Constitution; Article 1, Section 1

All legislative (having the power to make laws:) Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

The Supreme Court has NO Constitutional Authority to “Legislate”, Period!

U.S. Constitution; Article 3, Section 1.

The judicial Power (1) of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.

SCOTUS RESTRICTED ROLE:  The courts below the Supreme Court, inferior courts, are created and maintained solely by Congress.  In 1803, a famous case, Marbury v Madison, formed the basis for the exercise of judicial review in the United States (constitutionality) under Article III. This Supreme Court decision helped define the boundary between the constitutionally separate executive and judicial branches.  CONGRESS STILL HAS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND CONSTITUTIONAL ROLE TO LEGISLATE, CREATE NEW LAW OR MODIFY EXISTING LAW. 

The Supreme Court, or any inferior court, can only judge whether a Constitutionally created law, passed by Congress and signed by the President, is in conformance with or does not violate any Constitutional authorities granted to the Congress by the Constitution, amendments thereto, or governing law.  Any law found to be unconstitutional, at the discretion of the Congress, must be modified by the Congress alone and submitted to the President for approval.  The court cannot, and should not, but has, actually modified the original language of a law by interpreting the language in the law to suit the court.  This is not legal right of the court and has been labeled “Judicial Activism” (2). 

Congress Needs to Pass Real Legislation Dealing with:

  • Freedom of Religion Protection under the 1st Amendment Against Government Overreach on Healthcare.

  • Define Life as beginning at Conception.

  • Pass a real school choice law allowing parents to use vouchers to send their children to a school of their choice.

  • Clarification of LGBT rights Vs the Religious Liberty of individuals.

  • Get the Government out of our Rest Rooms, Showers and Changing rooms.

  • Revise Title 7 and 9 that control schools and universities receiving Federal Funds to get the government out of the day-to-day operations of these institution.

  • Individual Employee Rights Vs Unions Rights regarding dues and Union political activism.

  • Disallow Environmentalists’ “standing in court” to bring lawsuits on behalf of the environment.

  • Mandate that all laws passed by Congress cannot exempt Congress or its members from its provisions.

  • Mandate that all laws passed by Congress, and any resulting regulation, that require funds to be expended to implement the law, be fully paid for by the Federal Government.  (Eliminates unfunded mandates)

  • Create a national standard for Voter IDs to ensure that Federal Elections are properly controlled.

  • Clarify 2nd Amendment protections by creating national “carry permits”; eliminate State and Local taxes designed to restrict gun or ammunition ownership; create Federal restrictions on gun ownership for the mentally impaired.

  • Pass common sense political contribution reform and eliminate PACs and Super PACS.  All persons, including individuals, corporations, LLCs, Unions, tax exempt organizations, can only contribute $1,000 per candidate or initiative. 

  • Require that the President submit and the Congress pass an Annual Budget or the executive and legislative elected officials and staff do not get paid until it is passed.

  • Require that the annual budget be prepared and approved using zero based budgeting and eliminate automatic increases.

  • Require all regulations that have been created undergo a cost-benefit analysis, and then be reviewed by Congress before it is put into effect. 

  • Etcetera!  You get the point.

Otherwise, Our Nation and Our Culture will be Dictated by 9 Unelected People! 

The point being is that Congress needs to step up and do its job as the Founding Fathers intended.  Since Obama was elected, Congress has shirked its duties and stopped passing budgets, allowed SCOTUS to modify legislation that the Congress should have done through the legislative process, and have allowed the President to create legislation via executive fiat.  Congress has the power of the purse and impeachment to use against an out-of-control Executive Branch and they must step up and exercise their duties as prescribed by the Constitution or we all lose. 

We cannot be dictated to by a President, or 9 unelected individuals on the Supreme Court. 

We need to get back to the basics and start acting like a real country again!

((1)Judicial Power is defined as Authority, both constitutional and legal, given to the courts and its judges (1) to preside over and render judgment on court-worthy cases; (2) to enforce or void statutes and laws when scope or constitutionality are questioned (3) to interpret statutes and laws when disputes arise.)

(2) Case in point was when SCOTUS ruled that the individual mandate to purchase a Obamacare policy was in fact a TAX which is lawful for the Congress to levy rather than an individual mandated payment which is a violation of the Congressional authority under the Constitution.  Chief Justice rewrote Obamacare regarding the mandates when he concluded that: “Part III-B that the individual mandate must be construed as imposing a tax on those who do not have health insurance, if such a construction is reasonable.”  It is not reasonable! This all the while the Obama Administration, who helped create the bill, maintained that the individual mandate was NOT A TAX, because it did not meet the Constitution’s definition of what taxes could be levied by the Congress.  Roberts must have “divined” that Obama had a mental lapse and didn’t mean what he said!

Jeff Session’s Litmus Test for Republican Candidates-Should be the Next Debate

Time to ask each Candidate:  Where’s the Beef!

Senator Jeff Sessions laid out 5 questions that each candidate for the Republican nomination for president should answer.  In Fact, the entire debate on Saturday, 2/6, should be these question rather than the sophomoric “gotcha” questions asked by Fox and other moderators.  Who cares about whether X thank Y lied or whether Y didn’t show up to an event.

To channel Donald J. Trump.  This country is in Deep Sh*%!  We need some serious answers to serious questions.

Below are the questions Senator Sessions posed and my comments below each of the questions:

Question 1: How would you vote (or how did you vote) on fast-track, and would you support or oppose advancing a final trade agreement which enters the United States into a new international commission with binding authority on future United States trade policy?

Senator Cruz and Rubio both voted to fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership, TPP.  Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the US Constitution states: “The President… shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur….”  The TPP must be viewed first and foremost as a treaty, and also be defeated.  The TPP transfers our sovereignty to a to be formed international commission that will have BINDING authority on future US trade policy.  This should be unconstitutional on its face.  While Cruz and Rubio voted to fast-track the agreement, Trump is squarely against it.  Where is the National Review on this one?

Question 2: If the vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership were held today, and you had a vote to cast in Congress, would you vote for it or against it?

All candidates should pledge to vote no on the legislation without reservation.

Question 3: Upon entering office, will you promptly and unconditionally terminate and rescind all of President Obama’s illegal executive amnesties – which provide work permits and entitlements to illegal aliens – including President Obama’s first executive amnesty in 2012, which remains in effect?

All candidates should pledge to immediately revoke all of Obama’s illegal executive orders without reservation.

Question 4: A supermajority of GOP voters say immigration is too high. Every year, on autopilot, we let in another 1 million immigrants on green cards, 700,000 foreign guest workers, half a million foreign students, and 100,000 refugees and asylees. Historical precedent would be to reduce record-breaking immigration, rather than continuing to surge it beyond all historical precedent. Will you support legislation to reduce immigration numbers, and will you oppose legislation that would add to the number?

All candidates should pledge to, at a minimum, reduce current immigration levels.  Even better, they should pledge to stop allowing refugees, from anywhere, including Cuba, until we have established a comprehensive vetting process; further, the H-1B and H1-A visa programs should be stopped until we can accurately assess our US labor pool and stop using these visa programs to compete against US workers; Also, all immigration limits should be indexed against the U-6 unemployment rate.  If the U-6 is <5%, then we would allow immigrants in.  If the U-6 is >5%, then there would be a graduated scale of the number of allowable TOTAL immigrants under all programs to be allowed in.

Question 5: Today, law enforcement are under increasing scrutiny and face excessive criticism from the political elites and the media, and are being targeted by criminals and terrorists. Meanwhile, since 2011, the federal prison population has declined by over 20,000, and is on track to be at its lowest level since 2005. Since 2009, the total state prison population has dropped every year, and is over 56,000 lower than it was then. These circumstances may have contributed to a nationwide spike in crime. The FBI recently reported an overall increase in violent crime and a 17 percent increase in homicides in the nation’s 50 largest cities. At the same time, the CDC reports that heroin and opioid drug overdoses have reached an all-time record high. Do you support efforts by President Obama and some Republicans in Congress to reduce penalties for drug-trafficking and further reduce the federal prison population, or do you think government should do more to keep drug traffickers off the streets?

All candidates should say they do not support Obama’s numbers for the sake of numbers bastardization of our penal system just to reduce the number of people in prison.

Obviously there is a need to provide better and more intelligent support to all law enforcement levels throughout the US including maintaining the military style equipment program for local law enforcement.  Reducing prison populations for the sake of just reducing the number is idiotic. 

We have sufficient info to help create a drug-use prevention program and to structure an enforcement scheme that will help reduce the drug related crime and incarceration rates.  But, so far, there is just too much money in the drug businesses that I fear makes its way into Federal, State and Local elections! 

As a former Mayor, I can tell you that Federal money with specified usage for law enforcement is not effective.  Federal law enforcement block grants are more effective as no 2 police or sheriff’s departments have the same needs.  Further, if equipment is provided, the training on its use must also be provided.


I’ll bet each of you who have read these 5 questions have probably come up with your own solutions and wonder why the President and the Republican Congress have not made inroads into solving each of these 5 issues.  You may also be surprised at the answers your candidate may give in response to these 5 questions.

The current debates are designed to drive ratings and to allow one candidate to look better than another.  We the People need to demand that the RNC and DNC work with the people to structure the debates so we can get the answers we need to intelligently vote.

Wow, an intelligent vote, the RNC and DNC would be scared to death of that!!!

Fake Trump Ad-DECEIT in Emailing-National Republican Senatorial Committee



The National Republican Senatorial Committee is Fraudulently Spamming Emails with the FAKE Soliciting of Contributions in Support of Donald Trump. 

Below is a copy of the body of the email:


Sender2016 Alert [via NRSC] <>

SubjectDonald Trump’s opportunity

To:  [Your Name], The Iowa caucuses may be over, but now all eyes are on next week’s presidential primary in New Hampshire. Donald Trump has a tremendous opportunity, which is why it is so important that you stand with Donald Trump right now.  Show your support for Donald Trump with a Donald Trump sticker, yours with your donation of $3 or more.   

Get my Donald Trump sticker now


The irony of this fraudulent email is that the US Senate Republicans HATE Donald Trump but have no trouble in hitching their sick bandwagon to his parade.  The Trump Campaign @realdonaldtrump should sue the NRSC but I am sure that McCain and Graham have passed a law making this legal.  How about Cruz and Rubio?  They are members of the US Senate.  Where are they in this?

The Congressional Republicans wonder why we wish there was a way to vote each and every one of them out of office and replace McConnell with a real conservative who actually cares about the agenda of We The People!

Donald Trump is the only candidate for president who is self funding his own campaign which makes this fraudulent email campaign even more evil.  They are trying to raise doubts that Trump is actually NOT self funding as he is soliciting donations for Bumper Stickers.

Muslim Immigration Rationale In Light of Terrorism Threat

Multiple Agenda in Play

It is logical for people to question the rationale of Western governments who seem to be highly motivated to increase the level of immigration from Muslim countries, regardless of the difficulties to assimilate large non-indigenous groups of people in a short period of time and coupled with the increase in local terrorism being perpetrated by some of the immigrants.  It is compounded further when the Judeo-Christian West is trying to assimilate followers of Islam, whose radicalized followers vow to convert or kill Christians, and, do not share common governance principles.  (Sharia vs Western Judicial System) 

Further, that with the rise of violence and the increasing terrorist attacks being perpetrated by radicalized Muslim immigrants, civil order and personal safety has become a widespread concern for their citizens many of which are emphatically questioning the wisdom of their elected officials.  In order to understand why politicians and world organizations are pushing for increasing immigration, you will need to understand that there are multiple agenda and  goals in play that may or may not seem logical to you. 

Some of what you hear or read are justifications to promote this type of immigration as the real motivations are not put forth.  Also, you may be blamed for being Islamophobic/Xenophobic for disagreeing with your government’s immigration policies.  Don’t fall prey to this intimidation tactic.  You have every right to challenge your elected official’s policies and to demand answers and changes. 

It will also be difficult for many to admit the level of ideological fervor behind much of the decision-making.  Finally, it will also be almost impossible to rationalize how some of the leaders can possibly believe that they can survive their own misguided, ideological decision making.  You will have to challenge yourself to look at the current situation and ask yourself what is the true motivation behind countries seeking to increase levels of Muslim immigration  without providing the safeguards needed to protect their indigenous citizenry and assimilate those newcomers crossing their boarders.  What is their end game?


Immigration Vs. Terrorism Threat: 

Size of the Threat:  On the surface, it seems logical that politicians would see the correlation between immigration from Muslim countries and the potential increased threat of violence from radicalized Muslims who enter a country without being properly vetted.  Say for example, that .1% (one tenth of one percent) of Muslims may have been or will be radicalized.  Assume that there are 2 billion Muslims in the world today.  This would mean that there could be 2,000,000 potentially radicalized Muslims in the world.  That is a very large number of people who may be recruited into radical groups with varying ideologies but the common goal to defeat Christianity and the West. 

Is it Islamophobic to equate the current level of terrorism to the increasing radicalization of Muslims?  No.  Radicalized Muslims have been responsible for over 90% of the acts of terror around the world in recent years and the acts are increasing and spreading into the heartlands of Western countries.  Don’t abandon common sense for political correctness.  If 90% of the terrorist attacks were being perpetrated by Christians, it would be equally as appropriate to say that radical Christianity is responsible for the increase in terrorism. 

Finally, it does not matter which radical group terrorist align with.  If a particular group is eliminated, they will join one of the surviving radical groups.  We have allowed our government to segregate Islamic Terrorism into various factions so when the government makes progress against one group, they can run a victory lap.  (Had you even heard of Al Qaeda before 9/11?)  The problem of Islamic Terrorism does not go away just because one group is eliminated.  When bin Laden was killed, Obama said the Al Qaeda was on the run and diminished.  The words no sooner passed his lips when ISIS came to the forefront.  Now, Al Qaeda is back with vengeance in multiple theatres.  We have to focus on the broader Islamic Terrorism threat rather than continuing to focus on differing factions.  That would be like someone thinking that they were at war with the US Navy but not recognizing the rest of the US armed forces units would join the overall fight.


Justifying Unchecked Immigration from Muslim Countries

As I stated at the beginning, there is not one single ideology or rationale used by Western Governments to promote and allow unfettered immigration.  The following are some of the stated and not stated justifications.

Natural Population Growth Statistics:  The U.S. and European household family sizes have dropped significantly since the 1960s.  In the US, the family size in 1960 was 3.67 while in 2014 it fell to 3.13, a drop of 17%.  In Europe, by 1995, the average household contained 2.5 people. This is expected to decrease further as the number of one-person households increases from 30% in 2000 to 36% by 2015.  Conversely, the family sizes in Muslim homes in the US are 25% larger than for non-Muslim families.  Use of birth control and the incidence of abortions in the US and Europe are both high contributing to the decline household sizes among Whites, Blacks and Hispanics, with the latter two comprising a disproportionate share of the number of abortions.

European Labor Force Shrinking-Rationale for Immigration:  Europe’s population of 500 million people is aging and many of their baby boomers have or will soon be leaving the labor market.  Within the next 50 years, the European labor force will be reduced by 45 million workers (almost 10% of current population) due to retirement.  Angela Merkel, speaking in Berlin to 4 cabinet ministers in May of 2013, stated; “It’s high time to start tackling the generational challenges.  Projections that Germany will have 6 million fewer working-age people by 2025 mean that we can surely do more to be open to immigration.”  Clearly she sees immigration as the only means to solve Germany’s labor shortage that is looming on the horizon.  As the leading manufacturing country and most affluent in the EU, Germany is committed to maintaining its dominance.   In 2015, Germany allowed over 1.1 million immigrants to enter their country.  The European Union’s 27 member nations have adopted several policies to “control” their newly arrived immigrants but given the increasing levels of terrorism and civil disobedience involving wide-spread sexual assaults and property destruction, they clearly do not have their immigration under control nor are they able to assimilate them into their societies.  The presence of “No-Go” zones in many of the larger cities in the EU are evidence of the lack of assimilation.

US Labor Force Manipulated Shrinkage-Rationale for Immigration:  There are several factors that are contributing to the shrinking US labor force.

  • The US has over 94,000,000 potential workers who have dropped out of the job market since the 2008 recession due to policies that our government is pursuing is also serving to perpetuate this low participation rate.
  • Hardest hit are the US minority populations of Blacks and Hispanics, some of which are refugees or Muslim immigrants.
  • The US has increased the amount of social welfare benefits one can receive, who is no longer in the work force, which further incentivized higher rates of non-labor force participation.
  • The US also has a large segment of its population who are baby boomers and who will be retiring now and in the next few years further reducing the labor force and increasing Social Security outlays.
  • Immigration, legal and illegal, is increasing while the labor participation rate continues to decline among US workers.  Read that line again.  Fewer US citizens are fining jobs so quit looking while our government is bringing more non citizens.
    • H1-A and H1-B visas have increased since 2008 and this labor is replacing US workers who are no longer in the labor force.
    • Illegal immigration is back filling many of the lower wage jobs that are no longer filled by US workers.
    • Refugee programs are also adding workers to the US labor pool providing additional competition for jobs.
    • In short, our high levels of immigration and “temporary” Visas are knocking our own workers out of the workplace, lowering wages due to an excess supply of cheap labor, and is allowing politicians to blame straw men for this phenomena.  (More down below)

Since 2008 we have seen the number of full-time jobs shrink significantly due to changes in the healthcare system and other employment mandates.  This was planned.  The influx of immigrants has had a dampening effect on wages making it more difficult for US workers to find employment that will yield incomes above the poverty line.  This was planned.  Due to increased EPA regulations and other domestic factors, many of the US manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas or to our NAFTA partners.  This was planned.  Due to increased regulations and the tightening of credit due to governmental actions, small business start-ups are way down and small business failures are increasing, again reducing the number of jobs available to US citizens This was planned.

Ideological Causal Factors for Increasing Immigration

I have heard people say that things could not be this upside down unless it is being accomplished intentionally.  Newsflash, It is Intentional.

US Versus European Union Progressive Socialism (PS):  Europe has been moving rapidly towards progressive socialism for years with the goal being the establishment of utopia under the EU Flag and totally centralized in Brussels.  The establishment of the European Union and the centralization of European political power into a single government, is a key component of the PS movement in Europe.  What does this mean?  PS sees the creation of the central government as the only way to create the perfect state where everyone is equal and all needs are met.  Karl Marx borrowed this phrase to describe PS; “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs“.  In other words, EVERYONE, whether they are contributing or not, have free access to all goods and services under PS.  Since this is a very complex model, only a few of the chosen intellectuals would be allowed to participate in governing process.  A concise way to describe the philosophy of PS is:

Progressivism is a broad philosophy based on the Idea of Progress (as defined by progressives), that advancement in science, technology, economic development, and social organization (that they will create) are vital to improve the human condition (as defined by them). “

In the US, the encroachment of PS has been slow but methodical beginning in the 1800’s.  It started as a social movement but quickly morphed into a full-fledged political movement.  Progressivism is often used interchangeably with Liberalism but for now we will just assert that they have many common ideals and leave that for another day.  Progressivism has not been confined to the Democrat liberal party.  Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican President who later joined the American Progressive party.  Oftentimes today, politicians cling to their Republican moniker but ascribe to the Progressive ideals.  Why, Progressivism is founded on the total centralization of power with the power held by a select few.  Ergo, Republican or Democrat Senators and House Members want to be at the core of the seat of power so join forces with the Progressives.  (This is why you are often disillusioned that a “conservative” candidate, when elected, votes contrary to your “conservative” values.)  The US has not been moving towards the PS model as rapidly as Europe UNTILL THE ELECTION OF BARAK OBAMA.  Obama is a died in the wool Progressive with a one world governing view led by intellectuals and like-minded individuals. Period!

Obama and the US progressives have fomented racial tensions, pitted some of the public against law enforcement, and blamed America for all of the woes around the world.  They have destroyed the fabric of our economy and have all but emasculated the middle class.  They are using climate change to over regulate and further damage western economies.  All of these are progressive tools aimed at eliminated the status quo.  All of these are worthwhile topics to elaborate on but that will be for later articles.

Progressivism with Immigration as a Tool

Goal:  Centralization of Political & Military Power

You may think to yourself by now that you should make yourself an aluminum foil hat as this is getting kind of far out.  It gets worse so if you need a break to find the aluminum foil, I’ll wait! 

Below is one scenario describing how the Progressives could use the immigration of Muslims to accomplish the centralization of power.  There are countless permutations of this scenario that could accomplish the same result.

The US and European nations all function under some form of democratic organization.  Elections are held, priorities change from election to election, and life goes on.  The electorate is not happy but busy just trying to live their lives.  At some point, Progressivism demands that a definitive act takes place that can catapult a nation or a group of nations like the EU, into a highly centrally controlled government protected by military force. 

Assume that in a year from now, the US has brought in an additional 2 million or so immigrants from the Middle East and Europe has added to it current high levels of immigration from Muslim countries.  For every million immigrants, there are 1,000 radicalized Islamic terrorists allowed in as our vetting process has not been improved.  Assume that Islamic terrorist attacks rise to a level on one or two per day in various cities across the US and Europe.  The American and European people will be railing against their respective governments to do something to eliminate this threat.

The US and EU then declare martial law in their countries and begin the process of establishing an “interim” governance mechanism.

This does not mean that the Congress will be eliminated or the European Parliaments dissolved.  But it does mean that the government will seize control and an oligarchy formed, perhaps out of a coalition of the Executive and legislative branches with appropriate insertions of intellectuals to insure that the establishment of the new order is established properly.  There will be enough of the old structure in place so the new leaders can say that nothing has really changed except that you are now safe.  This  all won’t be voted on but will be the result of the government “reacting” to a threat to the country that demands that Washington DC in the US or Brussels in Europe declare a state of emergency and martial law.  All military assets will be at the ready to enforce martial law.

Why would leaders or aspiring leaders and the wealthy participate in such an arrangement?

  1. They all feel that they would be included in the resulting society in a leadership capacity.
  2. They all feel that they would in a position to improve their own economic position by being in a leadership capacity.  Why not, Crony economics is alive and well today!
  4. They feel that the new military backed social order could forcefully assimilate the citizenry and the radical elements into the new utopian society.  Things would be so good that everyone would be happy.
  5. People like George Soros and other wealthy individuals have been funding the growth of Progressivism for decades through various well sounding organizations and think-tanks that they have funded.  They know they will be one of the ruling class.

Where does the UN fit In?

As the tentacles of the Progressive movement spread, ultimately an international body will be needed to include and consolidate the newly formed Progressive governments into a single worldwide organization.  The UN already has the structure in place and the use of its infrastructure for this new venture would not be that difficult to pull off.  It is kind of interesting that this past week that there have been  king about Obama wanting to become the new Secretary.  

Alternative Theory

If you think my theory is a bit too aluminum foil laced, then the only rationale for our leaders to increase Muslim immigration, without proper vetting, in spite of the threat of more terrorism, is that they are just the most ignorant and illogical people God has placed on this earth, ever!  Or, that they are all Muslim and want to convert everyone to Islam.  Or, they have a death wish. Or, Martians came down and are inhabiting the bodies and minds of all world leaders.

I do not believe that Europe is salvageable now without a major, very difficult, transition back to the reestablishment of the European population and culture.  The US is not quite there yet.  The 2016 election will be pivotal as to whether we reverse our current course or we continue and join our European allies in their demise.  

Final Note:  If you think this is far out there, go see or read the Hunger Games!

Hat Tips:

Paul Ryan Should Stay Out of the Republican Primary Discussion!

Paul Ryan poked his nose into the Republican Presidential primary today condemning Donald Trump and his stand on immigration by followers of Islam.  Ryan, emerging from an RNC meeting, said of Trump’s moratorium on Muslim immigration, “This is not conservatism. What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for. And more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”  First of all Mr. Speaker, whoever wins the White House in 2016, and it may well be Trump, you will have to work with him or her for the good of this country.  Weighing in now is premature regardless of your position on Trump’s comments.  Further, you are badmouthing one of contenders in your own party’s primary!  Maybe you want to exercise a little restraint and perhaps focus on the real dangerous positions of Clinton or Sanders.

Think Ahead!  You and the RNC will need the help of the Trump supporters to maintain the lead in the Senate and House.  Alienating a very large portion of the Republican base is not in your best interest.  Also, keep it up and you will force Trump to run as an independent.  Running for Speaker of the House could be interesting with three political parties vying for the Speaker of the House position!  I said in an earlier article that Trump, in a 3 way race against Clinton and Bush, could probably get 180 electoral votes and win the presidency.  Not sure any other combinations of Democrats or Republicans could do that.

The RNC and the Republican establishment best start respecting the Trump following.  You can’t win in 2016 without them.
