The Left & the MSM are THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT to America

Senate Security Briefing Documents the Real Issues Facing the US

The Left Wing media and the Democrat Party are distracting US citizens with the “Russia” and “Comey” issues while the world left by Obama is a powder-keg ready to consume the West.

The Senate Intelligence Committee met today in an open, then closed, session to review the status of world-wide threats with the heads of the CIA, FBI, NSA the DNI and others.  The purpose of the hearing was to lay out to the committee the status of world and threats to the US.  Too bad the MSM is cherry picking the discussion as even the open portion of the meeting was scary to say the least.  But, the MSM focus remains on the Comey firing and the “Russian/Trump” left-wing conspiracy.  They feel this is more important than the US being attacked at home and abroad by radicals and enemies across the globe.  This is TRAITOROUS at best.

Bullet Points from the Meeting:

  • The American people deserve to know that North Korea represents an EXISTENTIAL threat to the US NOW! 
  • They need to know that Russia is seeking to expand their territorial land grab in Europe, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. 
  • Also, Russia is stepping up their counter-intelligence efforts using updated technology and methods as are the US and others.
  •   NATO nations are threatened by Russian westward expansion; continued radical Islam terror attacks; 
  • The US is directly threatened by terrorism plans from Al Qaeda, ISIS, Iran and other radical groups;
  • and Iran is rapidly moving toward developing their nuclear capability and refining their delivery systems. 

All the MSM and the left can focus on is their narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians and defeated Clinton!

The graphic above shows that in spite of wall to wall coverage of Director Comey for the past year or so, only 17% of Americans have a positive view of the Director! In spite of his notoriety, 48% of Americans have no opinion of Comey.  And, 40% OF AMERICANS FEEL CONGRESS IS SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON THE “RUSSIAN AND WIRETAPPING” INVESTIGATIONS!  American need jobs and security, not political rhetoric!

Trump will continue to deliver on his campaign promises that are already making the MSM and the left apoplectic.  Their coordinated efforts to de-legitimize President Trump is inciting violence, hatred, and is posing an existential threat to our democracy and our future.

The only possible outcome from this activity is higher and higher levels of violence ending with and all out armed conflict between the left and the legitimate government of the United States.  When?   Probably well before the end of Trump’s first term and perhaps as early as the mid-term elections.   We will see how sanctimonious the MSM pundits and the Democrat fringe are when this occurs.  Hopefully Trump will utilize the tactics of his hero Andrew Jackson, rather than Abraham Lincoln, and not engage in a civil war to bring the country back together. 

Far fetched?  It starts with killing free speech.  The left has a coordinated effort underway on college campuses and elsewhere to shut down conservative viewpoints.  Sanctuary cities are already defying Federal laws and are aided and abetted by left-wing judges who ignore the Constitution and the rule of law.  Firing the first shot is merely a matter of who and when.

The Multi-Faceted Intent of the Syrian Strike-America First!

Trump: And You Thought I Was Kidding!

Are you confused whether Trump’s bombing of the Syrian airbase over Assad’s use of chemical weapons is:

  • a contradiction of his campaign promises;
  • or whether Trump is now a Neo-Con who believes in Nation Building;
  • or has the President simply let his left leaning advisors to con in him to attacking Syria? 

Well, none of the “conventional wisdom” is right and certainly the main stream media (MSM) is clueless as are most of the Republican insiders, Never Trumpers, right-wing isolationists, or self-professed “Conservatives”!

Did Trump know that he would be tested by the world’s bad actors early in his presidency.  ABSOLUTELY. 

  • Syria:  Did he know that Syria would use chemical weapons to test him?  He probably had a test by Syria on his watch list of possible provocations as well as the following:
  • North Korea:  The President probably had a provocation by NoKo on his short list of potential tests.
  • Iran:  The President certainly had Iran on his short list of bad actors and potential provocateurs.
  • Russia:  The President probably did not think that Putin would come at the US directly but use one or more of his partners-in-crime, Iran or Syria.
  • China:  The President probably did not consider China a source of a military challenge due to our mutual need for trade and other common interests in the region.

Trump had contingency plans in place for all of the “A” list of bad actors and their possible provocative actions.  Trump had a bucket full of escalation options for retaliation short of all out war or troop invasion.  Trump also knew that if his retaliation was decisive enough he could use it to stalemate the rest of the bad actors.

What did President Trump Accomplish by Bombing Syria?

All of the potential threats from the bad actors were not necessarily negated but he certainly gave all of them pause.  Further, the two military powers who use surrogates to test the US, Russia and China, were put on notice that the US would not tolerate threats to the US or stand idly by if weapons of mass destruction were used in combat. 

What were the messages sent by Trump and received by the bad actors?

China:  The US needs China to either act directly against North Korea’s nuclear program or at least not oppose action by the US to do so.  The timing of the bombing was especially helpful as President Xi was concurrently meeting with President Trump.  The timing of the bombing and the meeting was perfect as Trump’s words about dealing with North Korea if China would not was backed by his action against Syria.  China now knows that what President Trump says is what he means.  He is not necessarily diplomatic but he certainly says what he means, period.

North Korea:  IF NoKo had a rational leader, which they do not, the Syrian bombing and China’s support of our policy of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula should give the North Korean leadership pause.  It is doubtful that the NoKo leadership is neither rational nor well advised.  NoKo will probably continue to test their nuclear weapons and delivery systems.  China just moved 120,000 troops to their border with North Korea to prevent refugees from NoKo to come into China if the US moves to take out the NoKo nuclear program.  Action by the US is imminent.  Unfortunately, there is really no other option for the US vis-à-vis the denuclearization of the of the Korean Peninsula.  We are probably looking at days, not weeks or months. 

Iran:  Iran will probably adopt a take a “look-see” posture for the time being and not directly take any action against the US.  They will pound their chests and condemn the US but what else is new.  They will oppose any diplomatic efforts to depose his ally, Assad.  But, Iran now knows that Trump will continue to ratchet up sanctions and financial transaction scrutiny.  They now know that what Trump says he will do. 

Syria:  Assad is not as nutty as North Korea but he could retaliate against US troops in Syria fighting ISIS.  THIS IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY REASONS TRUMP HIT SYRIA FOR USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS AS THESE WEAPONS COULD HAVE BEEN USED AGAINST US TROOPS.  IN FACT, I BELIEVE THAT THE ATTACK ON THE CIVILIANS WAS A DRY RUN TO SEE IF TRUMP WOULD REACT.  IF HE HADN’T, ASSAD WOULD BE EMBOLDENED TO USE THESE WEAPONS AGAINST US TROOPS IN SYRIA.  Syria will probably let Russia try to fend off the US and world-wide negative opinion until such time Assad is viewed as a liability to Putin.

Russia:  Putin apparently received the message sent by Trump that Obama is no longer in charge.  Trump stalemated Putin’s advances in the Middle East and probably Eastern Europe.  Putin is now assessing what Trump is and what he represents to the future of Russia.  IF Putin is smart, he will seek to get an agreement with Trump to keep his access to the Syrian naval ports and seek to transition Assad out of power.  This will not be simple nor easy especially since the Alawites (Assad’s Shia group) will want to maintain power over Syria and its 90% Sunni population.  Further, Iran sees Syria as key to their march towards dominating the Middle East with a Shia coalition of Iran, Syria and Afghanistan. 

United Nations:  President Trump and his Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, sent a strong message to the UN, and its members, that they are no longer relevant to the US, or the world, in determining US policy.  We will take an issue to them as a matter of courtesy but our decision is based on America First and we will not wait for the Security Council to act, nor not.   This is accentuated by President Trump cutting the US budget to the UN which is long overdue. 

NATO:  During the campaign candidate Trump made it clear that members of NATO would have to meet their financial obligations AND modernize and emphasize Counter Terrorism if they are to remain relevant and supported by the US.  Message received and backed up by decisive action by the US in Syria.  Too bad the other NATO nations did not initiate the reaction against Syria but perhaps they will be emboldened to do so in the future as they have post-Trump bombing of Syria.

The Aftermath:

So, while 59 Tomahawks and 59,000 pounds of explosives at a cost of $88,500,000 may not be considered by some as significant and others as over-kill, we probably saved over the $88,500,000 in costs for flights, hotel rooms and meals for overstuffed diplomats sitting around a table wringing their hands trying to figure out what to do about Syria, Iran, North Korea, ISIS, and Russia.

Trump planted our flag once again in the sacred ground referred to as the international community.  Time will tell the extent of the fall-out from Trump’s actions but there is no doubt that his action resulted in

“MESSAGE SENT-MESSAGE RECEIVED”.

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.

“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

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.

Supreme Court Trumps Any Reason to Vote for Hillary!

Vote for Hillary

Here is Your Supreme Court!

clinton-supreme-court

 

Hillary’s New Justices:  Merrick Garland, Barak Obama, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. 

Hillary’s winning of the 2016 Presidential campaign will signal the end to the original intent of the US Constitution, personal freedoms, and our great nation as we have known it.  She will continue to take this country down the rabbit hole of Globalism, Centralization of Power and Socialism.

If Hillary is elected, she will add left leaning Merrick Garland first giving the left a 5-4 advantage.  Justices Kennedy (80), Ginsberg (83), and Breyer (78) will most likely retire within the next 2 years if Clinton is elected.  Depending on his health, Thomas (68) could retire within the next 4-8 years!  Hillary’s list of replacements include Barak Obama, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch.  Loretta will most likely remain as Hillary’s Attorney General as I am sure she was promised in her tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton!  At some point, Hillary will put her on the Court!  The offshoot is a hard progressive controlled Supreme Court (6-3) for the next 25 plus years.  If Thomas leaves the court within Clinton’s reign, the court will be 7-2!  The original intent of the US Constitution will be gone forever!

If you care about this country, the future of your children and your grandchildren, then all of the talk about Trump’s demeanor, his temperament, and his fitness for the Presidency of the United States is irrelevant if you value the US Constitution; personal freedoms; capitalism; freedom of speech, freedom of religion; freedom to bear arms; and the very existence of the United States as we have known it.

If you consider yourself a Conservative, but are a #NeverTrump person, you must suffer from a self-mutilation complex, or schizophrenia, or are just plan nuts if you vote for Hillary.

Trump’s published Supreme Court nominees would reset the conservative nature of this court and ensure that we stop our march towards self-annihilation!  A vote for Hillary is a vote to abolish the very nature of our nation and its foundation, the US Constitution!

Republican Party Elite-If Trump Wins, They are Repubocrats!

Elites Don’t Get Trump

Elites Don’t Get We The PeopleREPDemcratNew Elite Party After Trump Wins-Repubocrats!

It is hilarious to watch and listen to the old guard Republican and Democrat elites and their young and inexperienced pundits from Townhall, National Review, and many others, rail on Donald J. Trump regarding his need to pivot, his need to stick to the real issues, his need to stay on message, AND, TRUMP NEED TO BE JUST LIKE THEM!

WE DON’T WANT DONALD J. TRUMP TO BE JUST LIKE THE OLD GUARD REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT ELITES! 

HOW MUCH MORE CLEARLY COULD WE HAVE VOICED THIS THAN AS WE DID IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES?

Here are a few recent examples of the put downs of Trump by the MSM, Republican Elites, RINO Pundits and failed Republican candidates,  (This group will just be called “Elites” in this article), and Trump’s strategy to fight back and why his “Off Message” message is “On Message”!

  • Why Trump Makes Colorful Statements:  Trump constantly uses colorful metaphors, language and sharp sarcasm to make sure he grabs the attention of the Elites.  His language gets him on the front pages of newspapers and online journals and makes TRUMP the primary subject of the talking heads.  TRUMP DRIVES THE MEDIA JUST AS HE DID IN THE PRIMARIES.  If you learn anything else by reading this, make sure to make a note of this point and remember it the next time the Elites point out that Trump seemingly makes a HUUUGGGE campaign blunder.  Don’t think for a minute that the Elite are trying to help Trump “stay on message”!

  • Why Trump counterpunched Khizar Khan:  Khan was a Democrat Party plant at their convention and afterwards, with the façade that he represented the Gold Star Families and used this forum to insult Donald Trump day in and day out.  The Elites mercilessly attacked Trump for picking a fight with Khan and Trump’s supposed, although false, insulting of veterans and Gold Star Families.  Khan is not only a Democrat operative, he is a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer and a stanch defender of Sharia Law IN THE US.

    • Trump’s popularity with We the PEOPLE stems from his unabashed willingness to stand his ground and not yield to frontal attacks on himself, his family, and ESPECIALLY, We the PEOPLE!  This is his hallmark and his trademark, and We the PEOPLE expect him to stand for himself and for We the PEOPLE.  Vets know that their only champion in this election is Trump and Hillary will only give them the same poor healthcare they have received under Bush and Obama.  Our Veterans and We the PEOPLE deserve better.

  • Why Trump attacks the Illegal Alien and Open Border Immigration Issues and Seemingly Ignores the need to garner the Hispanic vote:  The Elites constantly bash Trump when he goes after illegal aliens and our open border policies that drive legal immigration to levels that are not in the best interest of the country, nor We the PEOPLE.  The Elites are also the Globalists who see open borders as essential to exporting more US industries and jobs out of the US to developing countries that they control and from whose economies they reap huge profits at the expense of the US labor force and US entrepreneurs.  They use Federal regulations and taxation policy to ensure that US industries are at a competitive disadvantage to our international rivals and use economic pressure to force them to expatriate their businesses.  Finally, the Elites see the illegal and legal immigrants as a constant re-supply of thankful voters, thankful to the Elites!  The Elites must keep the Hispanics, Muslim and Black constituencies under control by setting up racism as the shield against Trump and his efforts to enlist the Hispanics, Muslims and Blacks into the American Mainstream.

    • Trump knows that you cannot turn this economy around unless you control the shadow work force made up of illegal aliens, refugees and millions of visa immigrants who never leave and whose numbers continue to grow unchecked.  Trump also knows that the legal Hispanics, Muslims and the Blacks in this country have been disproportionately adversely impacted by the shadow work force as this force drives down their wages, takes their jobs, lowers their opportunities, and increases their tax burdens as the shadow work force sucks resources out of our States and local governments in the form of healthcare, education and other social services demands. 

    • TRUMP’S MESSAGE TO THE LEGAL HISPANICS, MUSLIMS AND BLACKS IS THAT THEY ARE PART OF “WE THE PEOPLE” AND THAT TRUMP, AND WE THE PEOPLE, ARE FIGHTING FOR THEM, FOR THEIR FAMILIES, AND FOR THEIR FUTURES. 

    • His message is not anti-Hispanic, anti-Muslim or anti-Black, but pro growth and opportunity for all US citizens.  This is antithetical to the Elite’s need to keep the Hispanic, Muslims and Black communities segregated and downtrodden in order to control their vote.  Kind of nuts but that is their strategy and for decades it has worked.  Trump is trying to change this paradigm!

  • Why Trump Ignores the Elites’ Cry to Become More Presidential:  What they mean is for Trump to become the same as they are, dull, uninspiring, incapable of relating to the average man and woman on the street, and most importantly not to rock the boat!  The Elites feign outrage when Trump calls out “Crooked Hillary”,  “Goofy” Elizabeth Warren, calls Obama and Hillary the “Founders of ISIS” and so on.  They cringe and decry Trump when he calls for pulling out or changing NATO and other international organizations that have become obsolete and ineffective but serving the Elite’s ideology.  They became apoplectic  when Trump stated that Obama and Clinton where the “Founders of ISIS”.  But, they could not refute that Obama and Clinton’s policy created the incubator that hatched what is now known as ISIS.

    • The good news is that Trump himself has said that HE WILL CONTINUE TO BE WHO HE IS, NOT WHO THE ELITES WANT HIM TO MORPH INTO SO HILLARY CAN EASILY DEFEAT HIM, ABETTED BY THE ELITES!  Trump’s strategy will not be to have a canned campaign speech but to remain true to he is, and who WE THE PEOPLE expect him to be; the unabashed defender of “America First”, “American Greatness”, and our LEADER AGAINST THE ELITE GLOBALIZATION THAT THREATENS THE VERY EXISTENCE OF WE THE PEOPLE AND OUR GREAT NATION.

Trump Changes the Political Paradigm Forever

Image result for trump announces run for president

When Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy in the Republican Presidential race, he forever changed the “politics as usual” paradigm that has shaped US politics for decades.  That paradigm featured molded candidates, canned behavior and decorum by candidates, adherence to big money and Globalist Elitist views and objectives, and a reliance on spending obscene amounts of cash on advertising as a way to reward a compliant media with advertising dollars and a way to keep the “riff-raff” from thinking they could actually run for office and succeed against the US political Elite machine!

The Elites initially thought this was another whim of “The Donald” and that he would drop out soon or be easily defeated.  Down deep, the Elites feared that Trump had the insider scoop on the Elites and that the Presidential candidacy of Trump could rock the very core of US Politics and certainly had the potential to disrupt if not destroy the Elitist version of the Republican Party.  Trump had been one of those who had to learn to use his money, power and influence to insure outcomes on issues that favored his business interests. 

But, he also learned how the Globalist Elites were “rigging” the system against the US worker and that WE THE PEOPLE were no longer being represented by the Elites in power.

Trump instinctively knew that for him to win at “their” game, he would have to change the rules.  If he played by “their” rules, “they”, the Elites would win.  What rules did Trump see as roadblocks to his success in challenging the Elites and representing a populists WE THE PEOPLE movement?

  • Self Funding:  Trump knew from the start that self funding was not only a popular strategy, but one that he would have to use as the Elites would never go against their own Globalist Elitist self interests.  This strategy was successful in the primary and he hopes that he can use a hybrid of this strategy to win in the General Election.  The hybrid would consist of some self funding and obtaining funding from WE THE PEOPLE.  He knew that the Global Elite big money machines would not support his candidacy against a died in the wool Globalist Elitist, bought and paid for, Hillary Clinton. 

  • Low Media Spend:  Trump knew that his funding strategy would not yield a tremendous cache of cash and that his media advertising would have to be creative and be supported by “free” press coverage of his campaign.  Trump had been involved in the media for years using television shows to promote his brand and message.  He was a master at manipulating the media for his business interests and applied this knowledge to his primary campaign.  During the primary, he garnered over $2.0 billion dollars worth of free coverage by the media according to some sources.  As he was running against other Republicans, the Elite Media gave him a lot of positive coverage in order to defeat his rivals as they, the Elites, still felt Trump was easily beatable in the general election.   In the general election so far, the Elite Media has been merciless in driving a negative perception of Trump and this will NOT change during this campaign.  Trump’s low spend strategy is a direct threat to the long-term power and control by the Elite.  If campaigns can be won without the need for huge amounts of money, how will the Elite be able to buy off and control the candidates who are in desperate need of funding?  Trump is also a master at using social media and the “free” internet to reach millions of his followers and drive messaging directly to them.  This is his countermeasure against the Elite MSM and their negative messaging.  I predict that Trump will win in November and spend under $500M rather than the $2B that will be spent by Hillary and her PACs.

  • Trump-Go Directly to WE THE PEOPLE:  The single largest mistake the Elites are making is dismissing Trump’s ability to go directly to WE The PEOPLE via rallies that are live streamed to millions and through social media.  The energy and synergy he generates at his events are truly historic.  Trump is a typical Gemini (twin personality) who on the one hand exhibits a quietly analytical and deep diving psyche and drive to understand and absorb detail, and his flamboyant, bigger than life public persona who can stimulate crowds and energize his followers to line up outside his events hours prior to his arrival.  Trump’s general election strategy is basically the same as his primary strategy:

    • Large Rally Event Driven:  Trump is confident in his ability to sense a crowd, drive the crowd to a frenzy, and endear each participant to his cause as he makes it “their own” cause.  Trump started in June of 2015 without a single voter in his database.  He generates loyalty lists through his event sign ups that allow him to have thousands of potential donors and volunteers at his fingertips.  In a given week, Trump by himself can directly touch around 100,000 supporters via his rallies!  If each rally goer recruits 4 votes, that is almost a half a million new votes Trump will gain each week.  His strategy is for the long haul, 90 days, versus a quick hit on Hillary.  Conversely, Hillary draws small crowds and relies on the Elites to drive her message in the Media and via paid advertising.  His strategy is to use rallies as his recruitment and donation mechanism to defeat Hillary.

  • Trump’s Pivot Moments to Drive Policy:  Trump uses other venues to give “teleprompter speeches” on policy detail as he did on the economy and radical Islamic terrorism.  The more sedate, analytical, and low-key Trump is shown to instill confidence and to counteract the Elites’ bombardment of his more boisterous rally persona.  From what I have read about Trump, he has almost a photographic memory and could deliver the same type of speech without a teleprompter.  I am wondering if the use of the teleprompter is for Trump’s benefit, or for the Elites’ so they can use his “pivot persona” against him when he goes back on the trail with his “rally persona”.  Then the GOP Elitists can wring their phony, money grabbing hands and say that Trump can’t stay on message!

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

  • November will be a test of whether an outsider can take on the entire International Globalist Elite crowd and actually ascend to the most powerful position in the world. 

  • Whether this nation is capable of electing a candidate who is committed to representing the average man and women and stand up for the rights of their families. 

  • Whether this nation is capable of electing a truly color blind individual who will fight for the rights of all AMERICANS FIRST and once again put America back on a path to unity and bring back the reality of E Pluribus Unum

  • Whether this nation is capable of standing up against paid for political Elites and take back their own country and whether WE THE PEOPLE is still alive in the United States.

    E Pluribus Unum

Out of Many, One

A powerful movie set during the Civil War and transitions into the post war Reconstruction era where the South struggled to give up its obsessions with slavery, white superiority, and prejudice.  The movie centered around Newton (Newt) Knight (McConaughey) and his struggle with fighting on the side of the Southern rich plantation owners and the historical enemy of the South, the Union.  Newt’s internal struggles are compounded by his affinity for the Blacks of the South and their humanity and struggles.  Interspersed throughout the movie are brief snaps from Mississippi in 1948 where his cousin Davis Knight, who appears to be white, is being tried for miscegenation (the interbreeding of people considered to be of different racial types), due to his family ties with the Civil War Knights.  This time juxtaposition is a stark reminder of the stubborn vestiges of prejudice and that the Civil War did not end the injustices suffered by our new Black citizens.

Set within the context of the Civil War are love stories between Newt Knight and his first wife Serena (Keri Russell) and their son, and then between Newt and Rachael, (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) his second wife.  Rachael was a slave women who helped Newt and Serena save their son from fever and then assisted Newt in his fight against the Confederacy to free the slaves of his county and ultimately to declare a three county area as the Free State of Jones under the Union Flag. 

The story also told of the difficulties the Blacks endured to become “voting citizens” in a South that continued to enact servitude laws intended to maintain a form of slavery while not directly violating the 15th Amendment.  The film portrayed the terrorism by the democrat KKK and the attempts to keep Blacks from voting.  As the Blacks were all Republicans, the Southern Democrat politicians fought hard to disenfranchise the freed slaves.  Newt Knight and his other white followers fought alongside of the freed Blacks to ensure that they were allowed to vote in spite of “voting irregularities”, i.e., the Democrats usually could not “find” all of the “Republican” ballots that were cast.

The story serves as a stark contrast to today’s misunderstanding of Civil War History and the Republicans struggle to help free and keep the Blacks free from the bondage of slavery, and then to defend them from disenfranchisement, Jim Crow Laws, and the ravages of the KKK.  This fight was evident during the adoption of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  The Republican majorities overcame Democrat votes against the act to insure its passing.  It is a shame that history has been rewritten to exclude the true nature of the Black struggle and those who stood beside them.

SCOTUS – Replacement for Congress?

Stop Relying on the Supreme Court to Create Law!

congress

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!

Limbaugh, Cruz & GOP Insiders Don’t Get It – We Don’t Want Rules, We Want Democracy!

 

IF YOU CAN’T SELECT THE CANDIDATE,

YOU CAN’T ELECT A PRESIDENT!

 

Cruz, Limbaugh and the GOP Establishment

Are Now United Against Trump to Give Presidency to Hillary

Limbaugh once again today took on the “Trumpkins”, which I find personally insulting, deriding their ignorance of the “RULES” that have been adopted in the STATES that are intended to insure that the GOP, its donor class, and its media supports crown the next GOP candidate and perhaps the next President. 

So called “CONSERVATIVES”, (a term that used to be somewhat synonymous with DEMOCRACY), Rich Lowery of National Review, Katie Pavlich of Townhall, Glenn Beck, Dana Loesch and Erick Erickson have all chimed in HAILING the Colorado GOP’s awarding of all of their delegates to Ted Cruz as a stroke of campaign genius by Cruz for knowing the RULES and grabbing the delegates.  Similar commentary followed Cruz’s post primary activities of taking delegates in Louisiana and elsewhere!

Unfortunately for “WE THE PEOPLE” we actually hoped that WE actually elected our primary choices for president and then ultimately voted for who would be our next President! 

Silly us! 

Actually, we are not that stupid and we knew the party bosses rigged the primaries to force us to take whoever they really wanted as our candidate.  We don’t want RULES, we Want a Democratic Process!

IT IS THAT WE ARE NOW AT THE POINT OF BEING FED UP WITH BEING IGNORED, MANIPULATED, SCREWED BY THE SYSTEM, OUR GOVERNMENT, AND ALL OF YOU PUNDITS WHO PANDER (synonymous with Pimp, look it up) FOR OPEN BORDERS, GLOBAL TRADE, AND THE UNFAIR TAX POLICIES AND REDISTRIBUTION OF OUR MONEY, FOR THE ELITES & THE DONOR CLASS WHO DON’T CARE WHO WINS AS LONG AS IT IS ONE OF THEIR OWN, FROM EITHER PARTY!

____________________

All of you who are supporting the Establishment, Big Business, & Big Donor classes in either party are playing with fire. 

“We the People” are tired of wage stagnation, being ripped off by large banks and financial institutions, losing our jobs as more and more industries are outsourced, losing our jobs to illegal and legal immigration policies that don’t care about US citizens, and so on! 

The last time the “people” were this fed up was in the 1770’s when the British Crown underestimated the mood of their citizens residing in the “Colonies”. 

Today, all of you puffed up pundits, radio talk show hosts, television talking heads, politicians, donor class moguls, ruling elitists, and party bosses are underestimating the mood of the citizens just as King George did!

THE IRONY IS THAT IT TOOK A BILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMAN WITH A POPULIST AGENDA TO FINALLY RALLY WE THE PEOPLE AND CHALLENGE THE UGLY STATUS QUO THAT HAS ENSLAVED ALL U.S. CITIZENS FOR DECADES!

We Fear the Ruling Class More Than We do Islamic Terrorists!  We Know How To Defend Ourselves Against Terrorists! 

Our Kids Died to Allow Iraqis to Vote!  We Understand Sacrifice!
