Republican Healthcare Fiasco-Separate Medicaid

Image result for Healthcare beaucrates cartoons

Republicans seem hell-bent on allowing the Left and Obamacare to define the parameters of Healthcare reform.  The Republicans ALWAYS follow the Left’s lead and allow the libs to define the argument!  This has to change, NOW!

ELIMINATE MEDICAID IN OBAMACARE REPLACEMENT

The Obamacare replacement should only focus on “private” insurance coverage whether purchased directly by individuals or provided by employers as a benefit to their employees. 

MEDICAID has nothing to do with private insurance and was enveloped in Obamacare to provide a transition template for the left to make Obamacare a single payer system.  This is the ultimate goal of the left!

MEDICAID should be addressed in separate legislation as is Medicare, Social Security etc.  MEDICAID is a welfare program intended to provide medical coverage for the poor even though Obamacare included those earning 4 times the poverty level aspoor”.  The chart below shows the poverty level for various household sizes.  The far right column shows the income level for those earning 4 x the poverty level:

According to this chart, a family of 4 earning $96,400 is eligible to receive benefits under MEDICAID.  This puts MEDICAID under Obamacare in an entitlement program category all its own.

Address Private Coverage Only in the Obamacare Replacement Bill

What is left?  

  1. Repeal Obamacare in its entirety leaving MEDICAID as a standalone program as it should be.  Medicare and VA healthcare was not part of Obamacare and MEDICAID should be excluded as well.
  2. Interstate Insurance:  Allow for Insurance companies to compete across state lines.
  3. Demand Driven Policies:  Allow Insurance companies to create a menu of bundled services into health insurance plans for both individuals and employers.  Self-Insured employers would be free to create their own plans.
    1. Plans could range from lower cost umbrella plans to comprehensive plans with optional add-ons.
  4. Lowest Price Medications:  Pharmaceutical companies would have to provide medications to patients at the same cost as they do to their lowest cost customers around the world.
  5. Expand Health Savings Accounts:  Health Savings Accounts should be expanded and considered part of the individual’s estate.
  6. Healthcare Premiums Deductible:  Taxpayers should be able to deduct the cost of their health insurance from their income taxes!
  7. Pre-Existing Conditions:  A federal pool would be created to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions.  
    1. It should be noted that only 1.5 million people or .4% of the population have pre-existing conditions! 
    2. The pool would be allocated to States according to population with actual dollars given out for actual coverage and any funds not used would remain in the pool. 
    3. Expenses would be tracked and reported separately.
  8. MEDICAID as a program should be dealt with separately.  Reductions in increases, block grant amounts, eligibility etc. should be kept separate from the Obamacare replacement. PERIOD.

The Obamacare replacement bill then would be pretty straight forward and get the government out of  healthcare for private individuals and businesses.  The free market would be freed to function and provide only the services that people want.

Health Cost Curve:

Cost Curve:  Health costs have been rising steadily since Medicare was created back in 1966.  Medicare created a complicated, and illogical, reimbursement methodology that has nothing to do with cost containment.  Medicaid has further complicated reimbursement systems and have served to only increase medical costs.   Medical providers should be required to publish their services and fees and the federal government should receive the lowest cost from these providers.  Rural providers could be required to charge no more than what is charged by the nearest metropolitan city.   

Government Claims Processing:  All single payer government healthcare claims (Medicare, Medicaid, VA) processing should be outsourced to companies like American Express to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse by unscrupulous providers.

Mal-Practice Insurance: Medical mal-practice should be limited to $250,000 per occurrence which will help control the providers costs that should be passed through in terms of lower fees.

FDA Reform:  If the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) certifies a drug safe for distribution, the total drug manufacture’s liability would be limited to $500,000,000.  The FDA regulations and procedures should be reviewed and streamlined to shorten the time to market for new drugs.

Alas this is probably too simple for power-hungry Washington DC.  Their lobbyist and personal power trips would derail the simplification of our healthcare system now that Medicare and Obamacare have moved healthcare  far to the left of center towards a total national single payer system.

Saint Comey Pontificates! “I am Good, Trump is Bad”

“Serious Manliness Issues”!

EX-Director of the FBI Comey kept to his pattern of seeing evil spirits in his superiors that has dated back to 2004 when he was the interim Attorney General under George W. Bush.  His personal political voyeurism and undermining of his superiors, including prior presidents, is embellished by his inflated self-importance acting under a delusional belief that he is the sole keeper of truth and justice. 

Another consistency to his behavior was his insatiable appetite for the limelight and egocentric focus on his single-handed campaign to right political “wrongs” whether the wrongs involved;

  • 2005 Enhanced interrogation objection against the Bush Administration. 
  • 2006 refusal to certify the Bush NSA domestic wiretapping program over the objections of the President and his White House Council.  (Comey’s certification was required as he was the acting AG and by law had to sign off on the program.  Thus, a single person forced the Bush administration to alter the program.)
  • In his 2007 testimony before the House and Senate Judiciary committees against the Bush Administration’s firing of certain U.S. attorneys.  Comey claimed that they were fired for political reasons and not for cause, in his view.  (By law, the president and the Attorney General have the right to fire any U.S. Attorney with or without cause.)
  • In 2013, just prior to his nomination to become the FBI director under Obama, Comey was a signatory to an amicus curiae brief submitted to the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage during the Hollingsworth v. Perry case.  Gay Marriage. 
  • In 2015, while the FBI director, Comey stated in a speech at Georgetown University, that police officers exhibit bias against African-Americans in carrying out their duties was a natural course of on the job learned bias.  (Great opinion to hold as the head of the premier law enforcement agency in the world)
  • In 2015, in another speech, Comey contradicted Obama’s support for police wearing body cameras.  (and you wonder why Trump may have asked if Comey would be loyal?)
  • In 2015, Comey, at a speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, linked Poland to the Holocaust along with Nazi Germany.  Comey retracted the linkage at the insistence of Ambassador Mull.  Comey stated; ” I wish I had not used any other country names because my point was a universal one about human nature”.  (Comey assumed the role of being the arbitrator and sage of and on “human nature”!)
  • In July of 2015, Comey opened the CRIMINAL investigation into the Clinton Email fiasco.  While this is worth an entire article, here are a few of Comey’s ego driven actions;
    • Gave into AG Loretta Lynch directive to call the Clinton Criminal Investigation a “MATTER” when he discussed it publicly.  
    • Comey was “concerned” when learning that the Russians may have hacked the DNC and was further “concerned” and personally distraught when AG Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac while Comey had an open CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION (NOT A MATTER) ON HILLARY CLINTON.
    • On July 5th, 2015, Comey concluded the investigation of Clinton and announced that, “FBI’s recommendation that the United States DOJ file no criminal charges relating to the Hillary Clinton email controversy.”  This was after a 15 minute speech stating all the reasons Clinton should have been prosecuted!
    • Later in July, 2015, after receiving the Russian Dossier on Donald Trump which is a false operation research document by the democrats, the FBI opened a non-criminal investigation into the Trump Campaign!  Comey did not discuss the dossier with Trump until January, 2017, prior to Trump’s inauguration.

Comey’s career is replete with disclosing ongoing investigations, the status of ongoing investigations, and cow-towing to pressure to back off investigations, (IRS, Clinton, etc.) by the Obama Administration including its Attorney General.  Comey’s disclosures are consistently couched in statements of personal discomfort for “having to” violate protocol and discuss ongoing investigations when it suited his need for an ego boost.  Statements concerning his consternation, fear, intimidation etc. serve to try to make himself appear as the victim and the champion against evil.  (Comey is 6’8″ so the intimidation stance is a bit shallow!) 

Well, Comey’s ego puts himself above, Bush, Obama, and now Trump. 

Everyone else is bad, Comey is Good!

 

A couple of other thoughts. 

Comey’s supporters, Democrats and the Main Stream Media, put forth the idea that Comey, as the consummate professional, always documented his meetings with key Administration officials regardless of who was president.  We know this is false, if we believe Comey, and the only high level meetings he documented with a memo-to-the-file was when he met with Trump!  We have no way to know,

Comey leaked his Trump memos-to-file to the press through one of his friends.  So, he leaked confidential information regarding his meetings with the President of the United States without copying his boss the Assistant AG or the AG himself.  (No wonder he did not investigate leaking)

Comey, time and time again, discussed ongoing cases, whether they were ongoing or closed, but refused to disclose that President Trump himself was not under investigation.  Comey applies convenient standards depending whether they make Comey himself look like the champion of right versus wrong.  

Comey and the FBI apparently, according to Comey who once again discussed an open FBI case in public, did not find any wrong doing on the part of General Flynn but are pursuing a charge of “lying to the FBI”.  Remember Comey successfully prosecuted and convicted Martha Stuart for this same offense after failing to find any other wrong doing on her part.  

Personally, I think Jim Comey is a sad, pathetic, small person who hates authority figures, has a very low self-esteem, and craves accolades and media attention regardless of the consequences to the nation.

With ongoing threats from North Korea, Iran, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and others, ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, a failing health care system, and a sputtering economy, Trump and the nation should be focused on something besides the ramblings of an ego-maniac and a Democrat party aided by RINO Republicans and the main stream media. 

The fate of this nation is at stake and right now our priorities are all screwed up!

Trump’s “Contract with the American Voter” What It Means to You!

We The People-Part II

Image result for we the people

Below are the 28 Contractual Items that Trump laid out today (October 22, 2016) at Gettysburg.  (The were copied from Breitbart’s coverage of todays event and can be found at the link shown in Hat Tips below.) 

This is the first time a real commitment has been put down in contractual form since Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with American” in 1994.  Trump’s list is considerably longer than that of Gingrich but then again the Washington Global Elitist, Democrat and Republican, have created many more problems since 1994!

Below each item are my comments regarding each point.  Trump’s items will require several paths to be followed depending on the item.  Either an Amendment to the US Constitution, Congressional Approval, or Execution Action will be required.  The Constitutional Amendments may take some time but the only way to ensure that key issues cannot be tampered with by future Presidents and Congresses.  Many of Trump’s items will make Congress squirm more than just a little.  The key thing to remember that all of his remedies are allowed within the Constitution from a strict constructionist sense.  That makes a Republican RINO in Congress squirm even more!!!

One other takeaway from these 28 contract item is the genius of Trump picking Mike Pence as a running mate.  Trump needs a solid ally working with Congress, on both sides of the aisle, to get these items through Congress.  Some will require a Herculean effort on the part of Pence and the Congressional leadership but a Trump election is a signal to Congress that the People are Now Back In Charge!  Plus, Trump, is a great spokesperson for his agenda and will not hesitate to take to the airwaves to help Pence heel Congress!  Should be fun to watch!

“Contract with the American Voter”

  1. Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress

    1. Constitutional Amendment: If Congress will not initiate, Trump can call on the Governors and their legislature to initiate the process of establishing term limits similar to the 1947, 22nd Amendment that limited the Presidency to two four-year terms.  Constitutional Amendments are not easy to process and pass but they can be done.  The last amendment was passed in 1992.  In the past, Trump has talked about limiting Senators to two terms, 12 years total, and members of Congress will be to 6, 2 year terms for a total of 12 years.  The details will be negotiated but I would hope that the plan for term limits put forth by Mark R. Levin would serve as the model.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  2. Institute a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)

    1. Executive Order or Congressional Action:  Trump could issue an Executive Order to implement the hiring freeze and limits.  This has been done in the past by various Presidents regardless of what you will hear in the MSM.  If Ryan and McConnell understand the mood of the country, they should volunteer to push through legislation.  Don’t hold your breath!

  3. Require for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.

    1. Executive Order or Congressional Action:  Trump will most like use an executive order to enforce this limit but once again, if Congress has any sense of the American voter, they should act in concert with Trump. 

  4. Institute a five year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service

    1. Executive Order AND Congressional Action:  Trump can require all White House staff and appointees to agree to not becoming lobbyist after they leave government service.  Congress will have to enact similar legislation to limit their own members and staff.  If Congress refuses to act, all members of the House and those members of the Senate that are up for re-election in 2018 would be held accountable.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  5. Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

    1. Executive Order:  Trump can require all White House staff and appointees to agree to not becoming lobbying on behalf of a foreign government after they leave government service.  This is slightly different from being an actual lobbyist so it is a necessary distinction.   

  6. Institute a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

    1. Congressional Action:  Trump will engage Congress to pass a law prohibiting foreign lobbyist raising money for US elections.  This would include money funneled through unions, PACS, or private foundations, like the Clinton Foundation.  There is no reason to allow foreign agents to help fund campaigns or efforts in this country.  We give up our very sovereignty when we do.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  7. Announce intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.

    1. Executive Order:  Trump can renegotiate NAFTA on his own and withdraw if necessary under Article 2205 which simply reads, “A Party may withdraw from this Agreement six months after it provides written notice of withdrawal to the other Parties. If a Party withdraws, the Agreement shall remain in force for the remaining Parties.”  Finally a government document you can read!  Trump will not need Congress to approve or disapprove.  There will have to be serious tariff discussions and other details between the US, Mexico and Canada if this comes to fruition!

  8. Announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    1. Executive Order:  TPP has not be submitted to the Senate for ratification by Obama and probably would not be taken up if it were at this point.  Trump would just have to announce his intention that the US will not participate in further discussions to approve this agreement.  Presumably Trump would engage in negotiations with the individual nations regarding trade and avoid ceding authority over the US by an international arbitration agency.

  9. Direct Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.

    1. Executive Order:  This will trigger a series of discussions within the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding China’s actions.  Other nations, possibly including the US, may get pulled into scrutiny.  But, it will put the world on notice that this practice of de facto tariffs on competitive goods will not be tolerated by the US.

  10. Direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.

    1. Executive Order:  Similar to labeling China a currency manipulator, discovering and adjudicating trade abuses will require intense scrutiny and a great deal of negotiation and possible legal action.  Between the two items, Trump will be sending a message that business as usual is over with the US.  Reaction will certainly be interesting!

  11. Lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.

    1. Executive Action and Possible Congressional Action:  This will probably be the biggest boost to the US economy long-term of any of Trump’s proposals.  I am hedging my bets in how this can be accomplished as there may be laws on the books regulating these activities.  If what Trump attempts to do has not been limited by Congress in the past, then he can probably push forward on his own as Obama did in strangling our energy industries.  The offshoot of lifting these limits will yield lower energy prices, really put OPEC in a bad position in trying to regulate oil prices, create a lot of jobs directly and in support of these industries.  Since oil prices are relatively low, less costly exploration will go forward prior to an all out assault by the energy industry.  The coal states will see an immediate boost in employment and revenues.  I would like to see Trump add a “rebate” for taxpayers as our energy windfalls create additional revenues.  He should also earmark a percentage of gains to reducing the national debt!

  12. Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.

    1. Executive Order:  Part of #11 above.  This will help assure our Northern Partner, Canada, that the US values their energy partnership and start to build a North American Energy partnership with Mexico being included.  More jobs, less pollution, and more revenue!

  13. Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.

    1. Executive Order:  Trump should sick Ambassador John Bolton on this one plus a review of all funding of the UN by the US.  The UN has grabbed onto the climate change fiasco in order to redistribute money to themselves and whoever they want to prop up.  I wish I could believe that global warming was real and that the waters around Manhattan would rise and swallow up the UN building!

  14. Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.

    1. Executive Order:  Trump may have carpel tunnel syndrome by the time he signs all of the Un-Executive Orders!  This will save billions of dollars as well as reduce the power of many federal agencies and bureaucracies.  He should go back to 1992 to make sure that Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II don’t have any “stinkers” in the pile!

  15. Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    1. Submission of a Supreme Court Nominee to the Senate:  This should be a quick action item for Trump.  It will be interesting how the Senate Republicans react!  The Democrats will fight to block any of the 20 but McConnell has to stand up and fight back.  If the Republican lose the Senate, then Trump will have to fight in the court of public opinion to get his appointments through the Senate’s barbaric process.

  16. Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.

    1. Executive Order and Maybe some Congressional Action:  Much of the funding through federal agencies to States, Cities and Counties can be cut off via executive order.  If there are any Congressional funding mechanisms on the books, Congress would have to vote for a rider allowing the President to cut off funds if he deemed the agency to be a “sanctuary” haven for illegal aliens.  As an Ex-California Mayor, I fought for this back in the 1970’s when this nonsense of sanctuary cities started.  Gov. Brown of California will fight tooth and nail on this one as he was a strong proponent of sanctuary cities in the 1970’s!  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  17. Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.

    1. Executive Action:  The laws are already on the books for removing illegal aliens, especially those who have committed felonies in the US, and sending them back to their home country.  I doubt that foreign countries will refuse to take back their “citizens” when facing the loss of foreign aid, visas and trade.  Trump and the US is in a strong position on this item.

  18. Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

    1. Executive Order:  Trump can use an executive order to suspend immigration and direct Homeland Security to create and enforce safe vetting procedures.  Suspension of immigration from specific areas have been done by many administrations in the past including Obama/Clinton when they suspended immigration from IRAQ!

  19. Work with Congress on a Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act; an economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

    1. Congressional Action:  This will not be a quick fix for Trump.  It took Reagan quite a while to get his tax program somewhat through Congress.  Congress uses the tax code to pay off their donors so there will be more pigs in this blanket than with any other proposal.  The sooner this is enacted, that faster the economy can start to turn around and revenue start to flow.  In the end, if the Republican can keep even a marginal majority in the House and Senate, this can be attached to a budget bill and passed with a majority in both houses.  If Congress fails to act on Trump’s proposal, the 2018 elections will be bloody.  Trump will be campaigning for or against Congress depending on if they support his Tax Plan!  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  20. Work with Congress on an End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

    1. Congressional Action:  One would think that this would be a no brainer for Congress but this is at the heart of Progressive Globalism.  This Act encourages our companies to produce goods in low wage countries and does not punish them for laying off American Workers.  This is part of Trump’s overall strategy of bring back American manufacturing and preventing it from leaving in the future.  You would think that our labor unions would be behind this and indeed the workers are.  But the union leadership in charge of money laundering campaign contributions for Democrats are not.  If Congress fails to act on Trump’s proposal, the 2018 elections will be bloody on this one as well.  Trump will be campaigning for or against Congress depending on if they support his repeal of this act!  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  21. Work with Congress on an American Energy & Infrastructure Act; Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

    1. Congressional Action:  This plan would partner private and public funding of needed energy and infrastructure projects to allow us to build up our roads, airports, bridges etc.  This is not like Obama’s stimulus as it creates a “bond” type of funding for these projects rather than drag down on the US Treasury.  Once again, the Porkers in Congress love this kind of legislation so it will remain to be seen if Trump comes out with a pure form of his proposal.  Once again 2018 may be an impetus for Congress to act!  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  22. Work with Congress on a School Choice And Education Opportunity Act; redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  Many of the required changes can be driven through the Department of Education via executive orders.  Congress will have to pass enabling legislation to redirect Common Core programs as well as for the proposed school choice provisions.  Many vocational programs exist and should reviewed for relevance.  Some of these may be retooled with additional Congressional approval required.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  23. Work with Congress on a Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act; fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  Trump can use executive orders where authorized to tweak down Obamacare while Congress works on repealing and replacing Obamacare.  This will be an ugly Congressional fight and the Republican will not fight dirty with their own rules in order to accomplish the repeal.  Ryan and McConnell will be on the hot seat for this now as they can’t use the Presidency as their scapegoat.  They will know that they are not facing a veto now for acting!  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  24. Work with Congress on an Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act; allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivize employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  Some of the funding to start some of the programs can be redirected via executive orders.  But some of the substantive changes will require Congressional action.  As many of these are tied to the tax code, some can be appended to the budget and other tax code changes.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  25. Work with Congress on an End Illegal Immigration Act; fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for over-staying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  Trump can re-prioritize current laws and funding to push through much of this via executive orders.  Congress may have to add appropriations and to modify federal sentencing standards and guidelines.  Most of the Visa provisions can be enacted by Trump via executive orders as well.  The balance will have to be worked out with Congress and Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  26. Work with Congress on a Restoring Community Safety Act; reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

    1. Executive Orders and Congressional Action:  Much of the needed funding can be pushed through the Department of Justice once that SWAMP is drained.  Community block grants and other funding mechanism could be enacted via Congress to insure quick improvement can be made at the LOCAL level.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  27. Work with Congress on a Restoring National Security Act; rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  This is a big undertaking and will probably be done in steps with some via executive orders and some with legislation.  Congress will have to work with Trump on the budget to restore military funding.  A lot of the veteran aid can be done through executive orders using existing legislation and some legislative tweaking.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

  28. Work with Congress on a Clean up Corruption in Washington Act;  enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

    1. Executive Order and Congressional Action:  The Washing DC swamp is pretty big and deep so draining the swamp will require multiple approaches.  Trump can clean up the bureaucracy within Federal agencies pretty much through executive orders.  The swampy Congress will have to clean up their own swamp under the loving guidance of Trump and the pesky voters!  This will be fun to watch as Trump will undoubtedly appoint a “Super-Swamp-Monitor” to help drain the swamps!  2018 Elections will also be on Trump’s side.  Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.

Well, Trump laid out his contract to you, from him.  It is up to you to go out and vote for yourself by voting for Trump/Pence on November 8th!

Global Elitist Goal:

Global Elitist seek World Political and Economic Supremacy over All Peoples.  Period! 

  • They create depressed classes of Peoples and drive them into abject despair so they can be manipulated into helping the Global Elites destroy the fabric of civil society.  In order to achieve their goal, the Global Elitist must isolate these groups to the point that disparate groups see each other as their mortal enemy, literally.  Blacks have been used for years by the Global Elitist in the US to keep them in power with little regard for the plight of the Blacks.
  • The Global Elitist will shame the Nation States to open their borders in order to share their generosity with Peoples of lessor nations.  This will increase tensions as the new immigrants are so culturally disparate that assimilation and the development of mutual respect or acceptance is impossible.  Blacks have disproportionately been harmed by cheaper immigrant labor that have robbed entry-level jobs from young Blacks.
  • The Global Elitist must be able to seize absolute control over Nation States who must be beaten down to the point where they seek help from anywhere to survive.  The Global Elitist lobby to Blacks and other minorities to blame all of their woes on Republicans and conservatives and lift up international agencies as friends of the Blacks in fight the oppression from within.
  • The Rule of Law in the Nation States must be made irrelevant by continual Constitutional erosion from globalist courts, erosion of governance checks and balances, and a systemic erosion of personal, political and ethical values by the ruling classes.  The Global Elitist continually stir racial tensions between Blacks and Whites.  They use law enforcement as an example of racial animus of the Whites towards the Blacks.  This serves to justify Black rioting as a means to achieve “social justice” but it is a further erosion of the rule of law.
  • The Global Elitist create economic chaos within developed nations that drives up the debt of these nations to the brink of bankruptcy in order to bring down the strong nations to the level of the lessor nations.  Once the nation states have been leveled off politically and economically, the Global Elitist will step in and “Save the World”!  The Global Elites use economic chaos to pit minorities against Whites in general to deepen the racial divide and keep the focus off of themselves.

Are Global Elitist Succeeding in Establishing Anarchy in the United States?

Forward:  The balance of this article will focus primarily on the Global Elitist goal of creating racial tensions and segregation in American in order to take down America to the point where it cannot remain as the enviable bastion of Democracy and Freedom in the world.  In the short-term the Global Elitist will continue to foster racial tensions between Blacks and Whites with the goal being to keep Democrats in power.  Open borders, anti-nationalism, global economic chaos, and the pitting of disparate groups against each other internally and internationally will be discussed in the context of race relations in the United States and the role of the Global Elitist in fomenting racial tensions.  If the Blacks come together with Whites to actually work together to solve the decades of political abuse of the Blacks at the hands of the Democrats, the Global Elitist goals will be threatened.  They will even encourage outright anarchy in order to win the 2016 election if needed.

Global Elitist Insertion Into the US Government:

Political Landscape Changes in the US: 

Over the past 50 years, the Progressive takeover of the Democrat Party has been completed and included the full integration of Global Elite goals.  The Global Elites have also been able to infiltrate the leadership and rank and file of the Republican Party.  The Republican Party has embraced many of the Open Borders objectives and Globalism in trade.  Many have also embraced the expansion the Government and the rapid increase in the national debt in spite of a sluggish growth of the US economy.  The Republican Neo-Conservative movement is evidence of the GOP embracing positions that are not typical Republican Conservative positions.  Global Elites with international business interest have been dominant in both parties in driving legislation that benefits the Global Elites over American workers.  The view that the rights of US citizens should be diminished for the “Global Good” has not only been promoted but integrated into our national political thinking.  The result of this shift has been persistent high unemployment, stagnant GDP growth, more US businesses moving out of the US, an $800B trade deficit, and a whopping $20 Trillion dollar national debt!  The impact on the Black and other minority communities has been disproportionately high creating further frustration resulting in feelings of being left behind and politically detached.   Global Warming, refugee relocation, and amnesty for illegal aliens now trump jobs and financial security for US Citizens for the “greater good”.

Deterioration of US Race Relations:

Racial relations in the US have deteriorated substantially over the past 8 years under the Obama administration.  If Obama had intentionally stirred up animosity between Whites and Blacks, he could have not been more successful.  Blacks today have been convinced by the Global Elitist that Republicans were the slave owners, the ones who created the “Jim Crow Laws”, the ones who tried to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the ones who started the KKK!  The bottom line is that US leadership, left and right, has failed miserably in creating better race relations and have built a seemingly impenetrable walls between US racial groups.  Blacks have traditionally overwhelmingly supported the Democrat Party and believe that the GOP does not represent their best interest.  (Donald Trump is changing this perception but not for the GOP, but for his populist message)  The result of this degradation in race relations has yielded the following:  Blacks distrust law enforcement;  Blacks in the inner-cities receive inferior education when compared to the balance of the country;  Black on Black crime in the inner-cities is spiraling out of control;  Black illiteracy rates in the inner-cities averages 50% with very low high school graduation rates;  Black out-of-wedlock births have sky rocketed;  Black unemployment is least double that of other ethnic groups;  Blacks have the highest per capita incarceration rate of any other ethnic group; and Blacks have one of the lowest home ownership numbers of any group.  In short, the status of the Black and other inner-city minorities have deteriorated greatly over the past 8 years.  As a group, Blacks have been set up as the physically disruptive force in the US as evidenced in recent riots that resulted out of police shootings of blacks regardless of whether the shooting was justified or not. Black Lives Matters and other Black anarchist groups are now threatening destruction of historic statues and monuments that may be perceived as “racist” due to their commemoration of the Civil War South.  The destruction of the historical monuments and the attempts to rewrite history is to take away and references to historical truths that tie Slavery, the Civil War, and the continuing downward spiral of the Black community to the Democrat party who are the political arm of the Global Elitist in America!

Open Borders:

Both political parties have systematically voted for increased immigration levels, almost unlimited VISA grants, and dramatically increased levels of refugees from several countries.  The result of these policy changes has been increased competition for US jobs between US citizens and the newcomers;  fewer opportunities for our minorities, including Blacks, to achieve the American Dream;  increased welfare, education, and other government program costs to support the newcomers at the expense of the American taxpayer; health concerns due to the lack of health screening of illegal immigrants and refugees; lower national security due to the lack of vetting for immigration and refugees coming into the US from nations supporting terrorism.  The US Black community has suffered greatly from the Open Border policies imposed by the pawns of the Global Elitist.  Many in the Black community have not even realized the total impact of open borders on their own community.  The lower job growth, lower opportunity availability, and financial impacts on the Black community that have resulted from open borders have added greatly to the frustration in the Black households.

Global Elitist & Use of Blacks to Create Anarchy and Disrupt 2016 Elections

Image result for charlotte race riotsCharlotte, NC, Riots 9/21/2016 – North Carolina Key Battleground State Between Trump and Clinton

The Global Elitist such as George Soros have pumped millions of dollars into Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other anarchist groups in order to disrupt the US political process and ensure that the Global Elitist prevail in 2016 in light of the strong challenge by Populist Donald Trump.  BLM is directly coordinating all rioting and demonstration activities surrounding any law enforcement encounters with Blacks.  The narrative is that law enforcement is inherently Racist regardless of the race of the police officer.  In other words, if a Black copy shoots a Black person, it is a racially motivated shooting as all cops are racists.  Originally BLM was not going after shootings by Black officers but there have not been enough shootings by White officers to keep the riots going!

Race Baiting Politicians

Obama and Clinton keep stoking the fires of the cries of racism by not standing on the side of law and order but pandering to the BLM anarchist movement.  This has been a pattern for both of these politicians for the past 8 years.  In the minds of the Global Elitist, an America on fire is better than a Trump presidency!  In the minds of the Global Elitist, any Means Justifies the End, which is Global Elitist domination over the world.

What to Expect from Global Elitist Before November 8th?

Who knows how far this will go.  Will Obama eventually declare Marshal Law and suspend the elections?  Will BLM force the hand of the civil society to take lethal action to quell the social unrest.  Will Obama militarize our nation and physically seize control?  Those are far-fetched possibilities but I would have thought that mass rioting in a historic city in North Carolina over a police action that resulted in the death of an armed Black man, with a 20 year felony history, at the hand of a Black police officer who reports to a Black Chief of Police would be far-fetched.

Solution:  Black and White Unity and Rejection of Race Baiting Global Elitist

Image result for Racism

The Trump campaign is seeking systemic solutions to changing the negative paradigm of Black inner-city communities.  He is not pandering with hand-outs but with adding school choice for Blacks, bringing back jobs to the inner-cities, bringing back investment into the inner-cities, strengthening community policing so inner-city residents feel safe in their homes and on their streets, and ending racial tensions between Whites and Blacks through mutual efforts to lift all Americans up by working together and discontinuing the politics of racial divide.  If Trump is elected, this does not mean that the Global Elitist will take their marbles and go home.  Quite the contrary.  They will use the Main Stream Media (MSM) to hammer every unifying advancement that is gained and try to insert a “social injustice” wedge in between the Blacks and the Whites, law enforcement and the citizens, government and the people.  It will be an all out war and not fought with any degree of civility.

The other lever they will pull is Islamophobia.  This is present today but has not been totally exploited by the Global Elitist as it has proven to be less effective than fomenting discourse between Blacks and Whites.  Those pesky terrorist use bombs rather than guns, target gays, and are not particularly friendly to any non-Muslim group.  Maybe that is why they are Muslim Radical Terrorist rather than Global Elite Muslim Terrorist!  But, if the Blacks begin working with Whites to improve Black living conditions, the Global Elitist will seek out any mechanism they can find to exploit. 

Maybe after Obama leaves office we can actually embark on a true path to a Post-Racial America!  Obama used his bully pulpit to divide and pit one citizen group against the other at the bidding of the Global Elitist. 

Trump does not agree with or need the support of the Global Elitist.  Maybe, just maybe, we actually have someone who will represent We the People, regardless of race, religion, or other distinguishing personal difference.

Madam Clinton-Queen of The Elite!

Hillary Joins Obama in Denigrating

the Deplorable Bitter Clingers“!

deplorable-hillary-j

Hillary Clinton once again states her disdain for the “average American” by lumping them into her “basket of ‘deplorables'” and tagging them as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic and any other “IST” or “PHOBES” you can imagine.  Obama, in April of 2008, stated, And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” 

The Elitists of the left and right view anyone just West of New York and East of California as the “great unwashed” whose families actually worked for a living and may have actually “perspired” in doing so!  The elitist believe that the “deplorables” have somehow devolved into a sub-human species. (If needed, they would have to rent a tuxedo!)  But, while casting a wide net, Hillary has snared Blacks, Hispanics, LGBTQ, and others in her Basket!  That is the main problem with identity politics.  Pretty soon you are pitting one “identity” against another.

Hillary’s and the Elitist’s Definitions:

Racist:  A racist is a white person, or someone identifying as white person, who believes that everyone is equal and should be treated exactly the same regardless of race, creed, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.

Sexist:  A sexist is male, or presumably trans-sexual female identifying as a male, who disagrees with a female elitist or, heaven forbid, actually criticizes an elitist female, or male presenting as an elitist female.   

Homophobic:  a homophobe is anyone, of any race, creed, or ethnic origin who believes that what a same sex couple does in the privacy of their bedroom is no one’s business but that the “homophobe” has the right to not participate in or condone your same sex activities, or bake you a cake or make you a flower arrangement for your wedding.  (kind of like a libertarian)

Xenophobe:  A xenophobe is anyone who believes that sovereign nations should protect their own borders and establish immigration controls to insure the safety of their citizens.  “Xenos” can be a member of the LGBTQ, Black, Hispanic, Asian or Whites who do not want unvetted refugees to be allowed into the US.  Could also be anyone, of any race, creed, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation who do not want Islamic Terrorist to be allowed in the US or to remain in the US. 

Islamophobic:  Like a xenophobe but someone who may be a member of the LGBTQ, Black, Hispanic, Asian or Whites, and who is opposed specifically to allowing Islamic Terrorists into the US under any circumstance or elitist program.   This can also include, ironically, American Muslims who oppose allowing unvetted Islamists into the US! 

You Too Can Be a Bigot!

Image result for despicable me

So, by their vary definitions, anyone (non-Elitist of course) can be offensive to anyone else or be offended by anyone else, regardless of their race, creed, ethnic origin or sexual orientation!  So, even you can be one of the Elitist’s “ISTS” or “PHOBES”.  The problem with identity politics is that sooner or later you form a circular firing squad and shoot yourself!  The only way it works for an length of time is if one of the groups gives you a free pass and lets you to se them and also ignore their needs without consequences.  This is true of the Black and Hispanic communities today.  The Elitists have totally taken these groups for granted as a sure-thing voting block and only drag them out when they need to use them to condemn others of racism or xenophobia. 

Orlando Islamic Terror Attack:  It was tragic to watch but educational, when the Elitists tried to thread their way through their own identity politics after the Orlando Islamic Terror attack at the Orlando Gay nightclub.  The elitist could not support Gays’ right to bear arms and defend themselves; could not explain why an Islamist could possibly attack the Gay community that the Elitists claimed as their own; and then to see that the victims where not only gay, but multi-racial and multi-ethnic, really confounded the lines of their Elitist Identity Politics.

Time to Ban Together with Other “Deplorables”!

Image result for despicable me

So, when Hillary and the Elitist on the left and right describe their “Basket of Deplorables”, they cast a net that snared the majority of non-Elitist Americans regardless of race, creed, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.  Outside of the Hollywood crowd, the uber-rich and uber-rich wanabes, the New York and West Coast social elites, and their pawns in the Political Elite circles, I give you the rest of America as the “Basket of Deplorables”. 

Finally we have a pure example of how the Elites, exemplified by Hillary Clinton, divide us into groups for conquest, then play one of us against the other so we focus on each other and ignore the Elite’s sick machinations of the masses. 

Time to Get Off of the Elite Merry-Go-Round

The Clinton’s and the Dems, The Real Ugly Face Of Racism

41% of Hispanic & 24% of Black Adults Are Functionally Illiterate In the U.S.

 

He Would get us Coffee47% of the Citizens of Detroit and Chicago are Illiterate!

Trump and Minority Outreach

Trump, once again, is the leading voice in calling attention to a problem plaguing our once great nation.  The problem is the impact of the Democrat Party’s policies in our inner cities that condemn its minority, mainly African-American, citizens to poverty, crime infested neighborhoods, and illiteracy. 

Democrat Dominance:  The Democrat Party has ruled in many of our major cities for over the past 50-100 years leaving third world living conditions in its wake.  All the while blaming “Whites” and specifically White Republicans for the woes created by the Leftist Democrat Party agenda. 

The Left has been so successful in their indoctrination of the African-American communities that as a block Blacks voted 95% and 93% respectively for Barak Obama against John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012.  McCain and Romney and even Bush did little or nothing to sway the Black voting block to vote for them. 

Democrat Economic Slavery:  The inner cities with high crime rates and high unemployment in the Black Communities, all suffer from long-term Democrat controlled City governments.  Their pro teacher union sub-par education programs have created a group of individuals without hope for a future, an acceptance of abject poverty and high crime rates as the status quo.  They line up for the same Democrat politicians, backed by race baiters like Jackson, Sharpton, Rev. Wright, and others, and vote against bettering their own futures. 

Merging of Shared Interests:  The inner city policies that drive up poverty, illiteracy and high crime rates, are aided and abetted by Federal policy as well.  This is not only the fault of the Democrat Party, but the Republican Party shares almost an equal share of the blame.  The Democrat Party is actively pursing Leftist policies that expand government dependency and drive unemployment, poverty, high crime rates, and a degradation of education while the Republican Party stands idly by allowing the Leftist to have their way.  In the end, both parties have morphed into monolithic globalist open border elitist protagonists.  The Republicans are more focused on pimping to their globalist big business interests while allowing the Democrats to soothe the minorities into believe that their present plight is the fault of others and there is not way out!  Both parties are not really concerned who is in the majority as the end result is the same!  More government, more poverty, higher crime and higher illiteracy!

Status Quo Acceptance by High and Middle Income Blacks:  The saddest part of this scenario is the acceptance of this status quo by upper and middle-income Blacks and Hispanics who tend to vote with their lower-income counterparts!  In 2014, 1.6% of Blacks had an income over $200,000; 11% from $100K to $200K; 38% from $35K to $100K;  and 49% below $35K (primarily residents in our inner cities).  The upper income Blacks ($100K+) total 12.6% of the Black population.  If you assume that half of the population earning between $100K and $35K are middle-income, the total upper and middle-income Blacks would be 31.6% of the total Black population.  This is far higher than the 5% or so of Blacks who did not vote for a non Democrat in the past two elections.  If the upper/middle-income Blacks felt that the Republicans offered a better outcome for Blacks as a whole, they would probably switch!

Obama Anomaly?:  Many Republicans hide behind Obama as being the first Black President as an excuse for overwhelming support of the Black community for the Democrat ticket.  But, a look at the voting and registration breakout of the Black voting block belies this assumption to a great extent.  In the 2000 and 2004 election Bush won both contests.  In 2000 and 2004 Bush only received 8% and 11% of the Black vote.  Prior to Bush, going back to 1964, the highest percentage of the Black Vote, 15%, came in 1968 for Nixon and 1976 for Ford.  So, the fact that the first Black president garnered 95% of the vote, compared to a 44 year low of 85% of the Black vote for a Democrat, indicates that there is another explanation as to why Republicans receive such a low percentage of the Black Vote. 

Civil Rights Act of 1964:  In 1960, Democrat John Kennedy received only 68% of the Black vote and Republican Richard Nixon received 32% of the Black vote.  In the 1956 election, Republicans received 39% of the Black Vote; the highest percentage of Black votes received by a Republican in over 75 years!  So what happened in 1964 to allow Democrat Lyndon Johnson to receive 94% of the Black Vote, equal to what was received by Barak Obama?  Of course it was the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The irony is that although this legislation was initiated by Democrat John Kennedy, it was only due to the voting by Republicans in the House and Senate that allowed this historic bill to pass!  Over 80% of the Republicans voted for passage in the House while only 63% of the Democrats voted for the House bill.  In the Senate, 80% of the Republicans voted for passage while only 69% of the Democrats voted for passage (66% for Cloture).

Win the Vote, Lose the Hearts:  Typical of Republicans, they won the vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act but received very little credit for doing so in the Black Community!  But, this is their legacy in race relations since the assignation of Lincoln!  The Right has never done a good job promoting their fight for equal rights for all, including the Blacks, and actually received the blame for the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow Laws that were actually supported by the Democrat Party!  The Republicans have virtually conceded control of the African-American and Hispanic vote to the Democrats!

Enter Trump!

Image result for trump and the black vote

Just as Trump has done with immigration, jobs, trade, crime, terrorism etc., Trump is now taking up the cause of our inner cities and the plight of the minorities trapped in their morass of corruption, crime, violence, poverty and illiteracy.  No other Republican candidate in memory has ever put so many “chips” on the table for this cause! 

Trump understands that he may or not be successful, from an election perspective, in attracting enough of the Black and Hispanic votes with his outreach to justify the time and effort his campaign is expending.  But, it is yet another “injustice” he has identified that deserves not only his voice, but the attention of the American people, and certainly our elected officials in Washington DC, in State government, and certainly in our inner city government. 

Trump not only highlighted the plight of our inner cities, but will sit down in Detroit and other cities to discuss the plight of our fellow citizens trapped in these hell-holes with those very citizens.  He won’t pander like Clinton with her bottle of “hot sauce” or all of a sudden develop an African-American inflection in his voice, whatever that is, to talk down to those he is sharing this time.  He will listen to their voices and let them know that he plans to clean up their crime laden streets, promote minority owned local businesses, bring back jobs, offer school choice, and reverse policies that have promoted single parent homes and high out of wedlock birth rates. 

Trump will ruffle a lot of feathers with this inner city campaign, but those feathers deserve to be ruffled.  Our inner cities are a disgrace to who we are as a people, as Christians, and as human beings.  Democrats will cry that Trump really does not care and Republicans will cower down in a corner and hope he just goes away!  Globalist/Anarchists will be the most disappointed if Trump succeeds as they need to disrupt this nation to the highest degree possible so they and their oligarchy can reap the benefits of chaos.  If Trump does not win this battle, we are in for a racial divide that we have not experienced in our history.

Nov. 8th, 2016-Rebirth or Death of Our Nation?

We The People, OR, We the Elitist Global Establishment

We the Elitist

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” 

Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961, Phoenix, AZ

The United States has moved far away from its founding Constitutional principles where the Federal Government was limited to only those few powers granted it by the Constitution and the States retained ALL other powers.  Today, the Federal Government intrudes into every facet of American life and the States are little more than “agencies” to carry out Federal policy and dole out the financial crumbs the Federal bureaucracy deems appropriate. 

The United Kingdom’s (UK) Brexit vote was a wake up call for the United States in terms of thinking about whether we still live under a rule of law by We The People or a rule of law dictated by an Elitist, Globalist Establishment class.  In the case of the UK, the European Union’s never-ending usurping of British self determinism eventually led to the positive Brexit vote to leave the European Union.

Trump & His Supporters Stand Alone Against Globalist Elites

There are 4 major issues separating Trump and the Global Elites:

  1. Trade Agreements:  Trump trade policies focus on balanced trade between our trading partners. 

    1. Currency Manipulation:  Trump is against countries manipulating their currencies to make their goods and services more affordable to their currencies at the expense of other supplying countries.  Global Elitists believe that all countries should use currency manipulation to level markets.

    2. Dollar for Dollar:  Trump believes that trade with our trading partners should be balance on a dollar for dollar basis to the largest extent possible.  Global Elitists believe that richer nations should transfer wealth from themselves to developing nations via trade imbalances.

    3. Trade Agreement Equity:  Trade agreements cannot result in companies and industries moving out of the US to our foreign partners with a net loss in jobs in the US.  Global Elitists believe that developed nations should export their companies and industries to underdeveloped nations in order to level the global playing field.

    4. No Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) Provisions:  This provision transfers jurisdiction out of our Constitutionally  lawful US courts to an international court or tribunal for dispute resolution.  If one of our businesses is thought have violated its agreement with a foreign company, the foreign company can go to this foreign jurisdiction for adjudication.  Trump would require that these types of resolution be subject to US laws and courts.  Today, the proposed, Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the existing NAFTA, World Trade Organization Agreements, and the Energy Charter Treaty, to name a few, have ISDS provisions.  Global Elitists have forced ISDS onto America and the West in search of  “FAIRNESS”.

    5. Energy:  Trump believes that the US should pursue an independent energy policy.  Global Elitists push Global Warming and wealth redistribution based on developed nations subsidizing developing nations via capital redistribution.

  2. Immigration:

    1. Open Borders:  Trump does not believe in Open Borders and supports enforcement of immigration laws and physical control over the border.  Global Elitists believe in Open Borders and in fact immigrants have a right to inhabit more affluent nations to share in the wealth.

    2. Refugees:  Trump believes that refugees can only be admitted when a thorough and effective vetting process can be constructed and applied.  Further, that refugees should be resettled as close as possible to their homes so they can be repatriated as soon as conditions allow.  Global Elitists believe that refugee immigration should be encouraged to immigrate to affluent nations to allow the refugees to share in their new nation’s wealth.

    3. Visa Programs:  Trump believes that Visa programs need to be reviewed and visa programs should be balanced against US unemployment and underemployment.  The levels of Visa immigration would restricted in support of US workers.  Global Elitists believe that all Western nations should allow for unfettered Visa immigration.

  3. Foreign Policy:

    1. America First:  Trump believes that the US should intervene only when it is in America’s best interest and that we should not engage in regime change or nation building.  Elitist Globalist believe that the US should intervene whenever international or even regional interests would be served with regime change and resulting nation building.

    2. Iranian Region Manipulation:  Trump believes that the Iranian Nuclear agreement should be abandoned and re-negotiated to ensure that Iran remain non-nuclear.  Global Elitists believe that Iran should be made powerful, with nuclear capabilities, to counter balance Israel and Pakistan, and to create a Shia Syria-Iraq-Iran axis.

  4. Sovereignty:

    1. America First:  Trump’s entire approach to governance is America First.  American sovereignty and self-determination is the cornerstone to his platform.  Global Elitists believe that a One World Government is the goal and the shackling of the US is the first step toward this goal.

    2. NATO & the UN (and others):  Trump believes that all of our treaties and associated participation in regional and global organizations must be reviewed to insure that America’s interests are in the forefront.  If these organizations do not promote America’s best interests, the we should renegotiate our agreements or depart from the organization.  Global Elitists believe that One World Order is the goal, period.

Standing Alone:

Image result for lone soldier

Republican Elite Insiders Fully Support Globalization and the Global Elite Platform

Republican insiders/establishment and self-professed conservatives support the Global Elite Platform and oppose the Trump American First Platform.  This is a long list but to list just a few:  Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, George Will, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Lindsay Graham and many others.  These people do not work against Trump because Trump is not a conservative.  They oppose Trump because he does not support Globalism and believes in America First!

We the People and Trump are fighting Republican Elitists, Democrats, Socialists, the Main Stream Media, Labor Unions, Global Industrialists, and world-wide globalists to take back America.  This is going to be hard and dirty fight.  But, our very Nation is at stake and we either take our country back and start our re-birth or stand by and watch our nation fade into the dust of history!

Trump and Brexit-Need to Get out of EU ASAP!

Image result for brexit

Brits Need to Exit Before Global Elitist

Sabotage Their Exit and Their Future

If you had not heard, The UK (England) voted to break away from the European Union (EU) and once again become an independent nation.  They had been a member of the EU since 1973.  Prior to this vote, England was the 2nd largest country in the EU in terms of GDP.  They were the only country in the EU who had not adopted the Euro as their currency and still remained on the British Pound. 

The UK needs to file their Article 50 request to withdraw from the EU immediately! 

The powerful Globalists, Obama, British Prime Minister Cameron, German Chancellor Merkel, French President Hollande, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney,  George Soros, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton, and a whole host of other elitist will do everything in their power to first stop the exit and if unsuccessful punish the people of Briton for voting to leave. 

Punishment will come in the form of economic “sanctions” on trade and currency transactions.  Obama has already threatened that the US would be working with the EU on trade and the UK would be on “the back of the bus” if they voted to leave.  The Global Elites are fearful that other EU nations will follow Britton and try to leave the EU.  It is critical for the Global Elites to continue to “infect” and overrun Europe (and the US) with immigrants to eventually weaken the West and level the world-wide economic playing field.  Of course, the Global Elites would be at the top running everything!

Why Brexit Won!

By breaking away from the EU, Briton will once again be in charge of their own destiny and not be subject to dictates by the European Union.  The winners will be British citizens!  Briton First!  Sound Familiar…? 

The British People had to Pay £27.4 Per Year for the Cost of EU Regulations!

Brits, and citizens of other EU countries, had long complained about dictates coming down from the EU headquarters in Brussels that impacted their everyday life and certainly increased their cost of government.  One such example was the fact that English (and all EU horses) horses had to obtain “PASSPORTS”!  Why?  Not because they took the fairy to the Continent or traveled to the US!  It was because other EU countries EAT HORSEMEAT (Especially France)!  The passport was required to track the immunizations that the horse received in case it showed up on Pierre’s dinner table.  Didn’t want old Pierre to ingest female hormones!  Peta anyone?

There were hundreds of other idiotic and restrictive dictates from Brussels but the open borders dictates were probably one of the most worrisome.  You have seen the chaos in mainland Europe being caused by Syrian refugees and other immigrants from Muslim countries.  The lack of vetting, health checks, immunizations, and their adherence to Sharia Law (50%) have made assimilation into the EU culture almost impossible. 

Immigrant ghettos have sprung up all over Europe and violent crime, especially rape and molestation of European women, is rampant.  For decades, Briton has had an open immigration policy from their prior colonies, the fear that radical elements from terror prone countries was high to say the least.  Keep in mind, that once an immigrant comes into the EU, they can travel to any of the 28 EU countries without a visa or any vetting or health validation.  In fact, they can also come into the US unchecked using an EU passport.  If Osama bin Laden had immigrated into Sweden, he would have been able to take the EuroRail anywhere within the EU, unchecked.

World Domination by Global Elite at Stake

Image result for Earth Domination

Make no mistake, the Global Elite are real close to meeting their objective and dominating world markets and manipulating countries into economic and social submission.  Their goal is truly a one world government with them in charge.  The Trump, Sanders and Brexit movements towards nationalism are the first real threat to the Global Elitist march toward real world domination. 

The success of Brexit and the Election of Donald Trump are all that stand in the way of a total dominance by the Global Elitist by 2020.  We won’t only lose the Supreme Court if Hillary is elected!  We will lose our sovereignty!

We The People in the United States but follow the Brits and vote against the Global Elite and vote for Donald Trump!

Trump-ISIS and America First

Trump Has Put Forth Several Different Components of

Fighting the War On Terror (1)

 

Section 1

This article consists of two sections.  The first will lay out the terrorism issues and the second, the Trump policies to counteract the terror threat.  This article is a little long but the need to be as comprehensive as possible to lay out the problem, then the solution, makes it necessary.

War On Terror Is Not Just An ISIS Problem:

While Trump has kept the defeat of ISIS as his top priority in waging the war on terror, he and his security team have referenced the broader group of Islamists that include Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, and others.  They have more broadly discussed the issue of Radical Islam as supported by Islamists.  ISIS is at the forefront as it is the closest known direct threat to the US and Europe.  The other groups are no less lethal and threaten Central African and Middle Eastern countries.  Hamas and Hezbollah are really state sponsored terror groups funded in a large part by Iran.  In that vein, Trump views Iran as a major antagonist in the war on terror as well as a global nuclear threat that resulted from the Obama Iran Nuclear agreement.

A Trump administration would view Radical Islam as the enemy regardless of their self-described sect or moniker.  Further, with this view, the war on terror is not isolated to one or more radical Islam groups, but rather is inclusive of all of the groups and solutions have to address the concept of radical Islam rather than the more tactical view of ISIS alone.

Terror MatrixWar On Terror Matrix (Partial, For Illustration Only)

Tentacles of Terrorism:

On the right hand side of the graphic shown above, there is a column titled “Tentacles of Terrorism.  The list includes 9 items but it should be noted that the list is actually quite longer and nuanced.  But, for purposes of this article, this list will provide a springboard for discussion.  (The Taliban is excluded from this discussion as they are locally focused and semi-governmental in nature.)  

Command and Control:

In the past, command and control within terror groups have consisted of a dispersed group of leaders communicating with one another in any way they could devise.  They did not have bases of operations where synchronized planning and communications could take place.  Some of their communications involved the releasing of video tapes by terrorists like Osama bin Laden and his key followers.  

ISIS has broken that mold and seems to have much of its centralized command and control in the Syrian city of Al-Raqqah.  They are establishing sub C&C centers in Iran, Libya and other expansion areas.  ISIS has also broken out and disbursed C&C to local cells such as the one in Brussels.  ISIS has also mastered a new paradigm of creating what has been erroneously called lone wolf actors.  These are not lone wolf actors that act out based on their own motivations.  A better description would be Decentralized Islamic Radicals (DIR).  

These individuals and small groups have become radicalized through the ISIS internet propaganda campaigns.  Just as non-state sponsored terrorism was created so nations could not retaliate against nations, the newly created DIR terrorists are an attempt to eliminate the need for direct contact to train, motivate, and execute despicable terror acts.  Al-Qaeda attempted to create this form of terror in the early 2000’s but were not as successful as ISIS has been.  AQ also was more focused on large-scale attacks whereas ISIS sees any form of terrorism as meeting their objectives of domination through fear.

This category of terrorist may be the most difficult to detect and stop as the campaign has been designed to take advantage of surveillance protocols in the US and Europe.  By remaining under the radar of normal surveillance via covert or non electronic communication, they can plan and execute with a high degree of anonymity.  In the San Bernardino and Orlando attacks, it was not until long after the attacks did we learn that the radicalization of the perpetrators took place over an extended period of time.  Further, our current tracking protocols are totally incapable of creating an effective prevention regime.  NSA surveillance will not yield much information to prevent these types of attacks.

Operational Organization:

Operational organization includes not only a hierarchical management team, but financial, military, cyber, asset, and terror export management.  AQ started with a tightly controlled management team with Osama Bin Laden at the top.  As international pressure was applied, their leadership dispersed and they became a less centralized organization.  Hezbollah and Hamas basically are tightly controlled from Iran.

ISIS has created a hybrid form of operational organization.  The centralized governance is located in Al-Raqqah with disbursed “subsidiaries” in Iran, Libya and elsewhere.  The DIR groups basically give ISIS a totally decentralized and distributed form of cell management that can operate with or without communication or funding from Al-Raqqah.

Financial Operations:

AQ, Hamas, and Hezbollah and others have relied to a large degree on funding from nation states and individuals who are sympathetic to their war on the West.  This funding has been subsidized by criminal activities such as “Kidnapping and Ransom (KNR)” and other such activities.  Hamas and Hezbollah are principally financed by Iran and Syria whereas Saudi Arabia was a major contributor to AQ and other terrorist organizations. 

ISIS has added a new twist to its terrorist financial operations.  ISIS captures oil and banking assets and turns them into cash flow to support ongoing operations.  While this is a “fragile” arrangement, as these operations are exposed either physically or via banking transactions, they have allowed ISIS to be self-sufficient financially.  Also, their use of DIR terror, basically makes a lot of their terror operations virtually free! 

Military Operations:

Typically, terror organizations consider tactical strikes of terror, even 9-11, as military operations.  Traditionally we have defined military operations as an organized effort to take and control geographical areas, regions, or even nations.  This definition fits the ISIS operation but not most other terror groups.  ISIS has invaded and taken control of areas in Iraq, Syria and Libya but are moving into central Africa and other areas in the Middle East.  Much of their arms and equipment were “confiscated” from weaponry and assets left behind by the US!  ISIS military operations appear to be centrally controlled through their headquarters in Syria.  ISIS military operations are both sophisticated and fairly well self-financed.  This gives ISIS a military and terror component that heretofore has not be pursued by most terror groups.

Cyber Operations:

Due to technological advancements in recent years, the use of the internet, hacking, and other cyber activities have been adopted by terror organizations.  The dark internet has provided an area of communications that is difficult to track and police effectively.  Facebook, Twitter and other mass use applications provide a vehicle for terror groups to communicate, recruit and train followers.  Their use of hundreds of temporary accounts have made it impossible to shut down or track a lot of its usage.

Since the birth of ISIS is a fairly recent phenomena, they were early adopters of technology to recruit and train their military operations and DIR cells.  The Obama administration erroneously refers to those recruited, radicalized and deployed via these Cyber tools as “lone wolves”.  This is totally masking the danger and effectiveness of ISIS to perform their outreach and radicalization on citizens of any nation, making the tracking of these would be terrorists difficult if not impossible. 

Cyber hacking also allows terror organizations disrupt or intercept banking, security, and intelligence information and can even be a lucrative source of revenue.  The larger concern is that terrorist organizations will develop either a nuclear or non-nuclear Pulse Bomb (EMP) that is deployable via a drone!  This could be used to wipe out computers and communications in very large metro areas.  This is particularly worrisome following our ill-advised Iranian Nuclear agreement.  Between Iran and N. Korea, neither would have any hesitation deploying this technology and they would probably opt for the nuclear variety in order to maximize the damage.   Cyber terror will continue to grow until governments take a much more aggressive approach to eliminate this threat.

Exporting Terror Operations & Cells:

ISIS has taken the exporting of terrorism to a whole new level.  Al-Qaeda attempted to accomplish this but were primarily successful in underdeveloped areas without a lot of counter-terror security.  ISIS has deeply penetrated the west, especially the European Union (EU) nations, with their terror network.  They have taken advantage of the dark-net and social media to recruit, train and deploy “lone” terrorists described above as DIRs.  It is simplistic to label these individuals as lone terrorists as you will miss the key point which is how they were created in the first place!  ISIS created them, indoctrinated them, and gave them the emotional strength to carry out acts of terrorism. 

Terror Exported-Europe:

The EU has blindfolded itself and tied at least one of their own hands behind their backs as a result of their open borders and Syrian refugee immigration programs…  They have brought in millions of immigrants from countries who have supported or allowed terrorists to prosper.  ISIS has taken advantage of both programs and has many supporters throughout the EU.  ISIS is also recruiting more each day as the EU has failed to integrate many of these immigrants which has created Muslim ghettos where hatred of the West and continued radicalization is nurtured and allowed to mature into dangerous terror cells.   The EU and the individual countries’ no-gun policies have exacerbated the vulnerability of their own citizens.  The key question is whether the EU has tipped past a point of no return! 

BREXIT Note:  It should be noted that the upcoming referendum in the UK, that will decide whether the UK remains in the EU or be independent of that organization, could be critical to the future of both the EU and the UK.  It is my opinion that if the UK stays in the EU, that the decline of Europe will continue on its current accelerated pace.  All of Europe will eventually be overrun with immigrants, many of whom support Sharia and a great number who have become radicalized.  If the UK breaks away, it may provide incentive for some of the other members of the EU to depart the union or at the very least challenge the highly unpopular mass immigration policies of Brussels.  The UK then could also become a base of strength that is not hamstrung with the woes that are besetting the rest of Europe and may eventually be the military base that “liberates” the mainland!  Déjà vu all over again!  This time, however, fascism would have been imported by their own actions and not a result of a foreign nation’s invasion…

Terror Exported-US:

During the Obama administration, one million additional Muslim immigrants have entered the US will little or very shallow vetting.   Obama is also increasing the Syrian Refugee immigration with the same porous level of vetting.  A recent survey in the US among our Muslim population found that 50% of the current Muslim population support Sharia Law over the US legal system.  While many of our past Muslim immigrants have assimilated into our population, many of the more recent immigrants have not.  This is especially true of many of the central African immigrants. 

While the US is a little better off in terms of harboring radical terrorists, it is not too far behind.  If current levels of immigration from these sources continue and allowed to expand, we will quickly be at a tipping point in the US as well.  We have already seen ISIS terrorists engage in mass killings in San Bernardino and Orlando.  These will continue to grow in numbers and frequency as the current administration is incapable of dealing with Radical Islamic Terrorism as a concept, let alone a reality!

Section 2

Enter Donald J. Trump

The Trump Anti-Terror Policy (1)

Donald Trump, his surrogates and foreign policy team have all discussed various components of a Trump Anti-Terror Policy.  While many details remain to be filled in, it is possible to formulate a structured overall policy based on these discussions. 

Terror Defense

The graphic shown above contains 9 separate components of the Trump war on terror.  These components may have multiple targets such as ISIS, Al-Qaeda, while others may be more specific.  One purpose of this graphic is to show that an effective war on terrorism is not a simple strategy and has many components and moving parts!  It should be noted that the next administration is some 210 days away and the situation on the ground will obviously change somewhat between now and then.  The actual ground situation could alter the tactical deployment of various strategies.  Also, the matrix shown above contains several components many of which will have to be implemented simultaneously.   Below is an overview of what may shake out as the Trump war on terror policy.

Military Intervention:

We all understand warfare where ground troops, air strikes and other combat tactics are deployed.  In the case of terrorism, the military strategy will include various strategies and tactics depending on the terror organization and the geographic area that has been impacted.  For purposes of this article, the focus will be on military operations against ISIS.

ISIS Syria:

A key to defeating ISIS will be the destruction of its command and control center in Al-Raqqua, Syria.  This effort will require at least 3,000 special operations and technical unit personnel with 15,000 troops from neighboring nations such as Egypt and Jordan to stabilize this region following the decimation of the ISIS command and control.  It will also require the use of non-nuclear EMP attacks to shut down the ISIS communication capabilities.  Targeted air strikes will be key and they will have to be supported by ground intelligence in order to minimize collateral damage.  It must be noted that any effective military incursion into Al-Raqqua will result in civilian casualties.  This will be caused by ISIS using civilians as cover.  In today’s war against terror, the US and its allies must prepare their citizens that collateral damage is a reality caused by the enemy, and not our liberation efforts!

The fact that Syrian Assad government is still in place adds a new dimension to our offensive moves in Al-Raqqua.  Trump will most likely give Assad and Russia assurances that our primary objective is the elimination of ISIS and NOT regime change in Syria.  (That train has already left the station with all of the failed Obama red lines.)  Trump will also need assurances with Russia that our goal is singular and not threatening to Russia’s interests in the area.  Once the command and control of ISIS is taken out, the international force, that is primarily comprised of other Middle Eastern nations, will secure the Al-Raqqua area and allow humanitarian relief to help restore the area.  Additional refugee camps will have to be constructed to bridge the relocation task that will take quite a while to complete and stop the mass exodus out of Syria into the West.

Trump will also have to freeze Iran out of Syria during these operations.  Iran’s meddling in Iraq will be dealt with separately.  The bottom line is that if Assad remains in control of Syria, Iran will continue its status as an ally with Syria as it has for decades!

ISIS Libya: 

Military intervention into Libya will be a similar multi-national force, primarily consisting of Egypt and Jordan supported by our special operations and technical unit personnel.  Without the command and control in Al-Raqqua, the ISIS operations in other countries will be severely crippled.  Couple that with the Trump program to seize oil and financial resources of ISIS, in Syria, Iraq and Libya, the ISIS resistance in Libya will be severely reduced.  The key issue in Libya will be to have the Islamic coalition re-establish stability and governance in Libya.  Egypt particularly, as the next door neighbor to Libya, has a vested interest in the establishment of a stable Libya.  The final military operation will be one of “Martial Law” to keep the Libyan war lords from continuing their opposition to stabilization. 

ISIS Central Africa:

ISIS in Central Africa is presently not as cohesive as in Syria and Libya.  Without support from Syria, the Central African allegiance to ISIS will be seriously degraded.  Military operations in Central Africa will consist of US special operations with the majority of the force being from other Islamic nations.  The goal will NOT be nation building but the elimination of the terror elements. 

Financial and Oil Asset Seizure:

Trump has talked a great deal about the retaking of ISIS controlled oil assets and seizing any financial assets or revenue that they have used to grow and sustain their operations.  The oil asset seizure will consist of air strikes against oil trucks and ground troops to take back the oil facilities.  The risk will be that ISIS will demolish the oil facilities as they depart.  That is a risk that we need to take and if it happens we can rebuild the infrastructure paying for it with oil revenue once the asset have been re-established. 

The financial and oil asset seizure strategy is vital to the total elimination of ISIS (and other terrorist organizations).  Once they lack funding, their ability to fund external operations diminishes greatly.  Without internet communications, recruitment, training and deployment of foreign ISIS terrorist will be greatly diminished. 

International, Domestic Intelligence & Law Enforcement Coordination:

Rudy Giuliani and others could be vital to the formulation of our International and Domestic Anti-Terror reset under Trump.  Giuliani understands the absolute necessity of coordination between International Intelligence, the FBI and local law enforcement.  The creation of Homeland Security under Bush has only served to create a behemoth bureaucracy that is still ineffective in creating a state of the art communication team that is all-inclusive.  Recent terror attacks have shown that local law enforcement has been out of the loop in terms of threats or the surveillance of specific individuals.  This has to change!

A key to the short and long-term elimination of Radical Islamic Terrorism, will be to create an international team of local assets that can gather and communicate intelligence on all terror operations world-wide.  This has been typically a CIA operation but I am not sure that agency is capable of effective foreign operations at this point.  Trump may need to “retool” the CIA.  These assets must be locals who can infiltrate terror organizations.  This will require a serious commitment to this type of foreign intelligence.  All of the information that is gained by this agency, must be tightly coordinated with the Domestic Intelligence operation.

US Domestic Intelligence operations are typically executed by the FBI.  Like the CIA, the capabilities and organization of the FBI will be reviewed and revamped as necessary.  The FBI has to work seamlessly with the International Intelligence operations to ensure that any threat uncovered can quickly be translated into local action by local law enforcement 

The Domestic Intelligence operation will also include agencies like the NSA.  The NSA intelligence mandate will be reviewed by Trump with a refocus on social media and targeted electronic monitoring.  To day, the NSA massive data storage has only served to provide post event intelligence.  By then, it is a bit too late.  The entire system needs to be refocused on targeted threats both domestic and foreign and within constitutional constraints. 

Immigration Security and Border Control:

Trump will definitely curtail or dramatically cut back on immigration from countries where terror threats have emanated and also the Syrian Refugee program.  He will create a team to propose changes that are needed in immigration policy and vetting procedures as well as a new post immigration follow-up.  The Syrian Refugee program may be replaced by building Syrian refugee camps to temporarily house refugees until we rid Syria of ISIS.  Other Visa programs may be restarted once the new programs and screening are in place.  The new policies will include the tracking of Visa immigrants to insure that overstays are brought back under control. 

Physical control over the southern and northern border is critical to stop the influx of illegal immigrants as well as drugs and other undesirable smuggling.  A physical fence will be built on the southern border with increased electronic and drone coverage for both the northern and southern borders.  The federal border control agencies will once again be mandated to closely coordinate enforcement with local law enforcement.  Sanctuary States or cities will be eliminated as a violation of federal law and any offending States or cities will be sanctioned by the withholding of federal funds. 

Federal, State and local law enforcement will re-institute the deportation of illegal aliens with first priority on those who have violated other Federal, State or local laws.  Due to the neglect over the past seven and a half years that has created a backlog in our immigration courts, special legislation may be needed to create additional courts and jurisdictions to eliminate the backlog.

The E-Verify program will be strengthened and re-implemented with enforceable teeth.  Violators will be prosecuted and the applicants encouraged to engage in a newly formulated alien repatriation program.  The goal will be either the eventual assimilation of illegal immigrants through a lawful process or self-deportation for those preferring to leave the US. 

H-1A and H-1B programs will be revisited and emphasis on domestic hiring prioritized.

NATO Terrorism Emphasis:

Trump has spoken several times on the need to review the NATO charter, financial contributions by member nations, and its effectiveness in today’s world.  NATO will have to be changed to add an emphasis on counter-terrorism.  Changes to NATO that involve control over European immigration will be met with resistance from the European Union who favors a more open border policy.  The US may be faced with a decision as to whether it can actually help defend EU nations if they do not tighten immigration policy and internal security.  NATO is primarily structured to deal with external threats.  Terror threats are internal threats that require a much different approach.  A Trump administration will not be all that supportive of an open border policy that could very well be counter-productive to NATO security agreements. 

If the EU NATO members and other members do not tighten their border and immigration controls, Trump will place VISA vetting requirements for anyone traveling to the US from nations who do not tighten their own borders.  Without increased scrutiny of those travelers, the US would have a gaping hole in its own security protocol and one that terrorists would exploit.

Conclusion:

A Trump administration would usher in a totally different war on terror approach. 

Obama basically has adopted a hands off approach to fighting the war on terror and has exacerbated our vulnerabilities by opening our borders and not enforcing any immigration laws.  He is doing virtually nothing to physically combat ISIS and others overseas leaving them to metastasize leaving the world less secure. 

Bush basically combined fighting terror with nation building that ended up leaving our security in about the same spot, for different reasons, as Obama. 

Trump would execute a war in terror by eliminating the core of the terror organizations, tightening our own physical security, strengthening international counter-terrorism capabilities, with or without NATO, and Not engage in nation building.  Trump’s solution would empower other Islamic nations to help rebuild impacted nations and regions but not directly intervene in national governance.

If Hillary is elected and Trump is not, she will continue Obama’s policies with a little bit of Bush’s nation building thrown in. 

If that happens, by a Gun, Move to the Mountains, and Pray!

(1)  To consolidate Trump’s terrorism/ISIS foreign policy, I have combined elements  of his speeches, campaign rallies, and interviews.  Often Trump assumes that the audience understands the details behind his “One-Liners” but often the press, his opponents, and RINOs attribute erroneous conclusions to his comments.

Paul Ryan Is Just a Neocon Leftist, Period! Kate’s Law-CVE Program-Terrorism-Refugees

Ryan Continues to Veer Left and Ups His Opposition to Trump!

 

Ryan Trump

Ryan Punts On:

Kate’s Law

Funding for Counter Violent Extremism (CVE)

Pausing Refugee and Some Immigration

Enhancing the Use of the Terror Watch List for Gun Purchases

Paul Ryan continues his “redefinition” of Republican priorities and his opposition to Donald Trump positions.  Unfortunately, Ryan’s positions are a regurgitation of Obama’s and the Neocon positions rather than those of the Republican voters who overwhelming back Trump. 

Ryan is making a concerted effort to publically criticize Trump and his positions and sabotage Trump’s election.  Ryan is drawing a line in the sand with Trump prior to the GOP convention.  Is this a power play to (1) Set the agenda for the GOP versus allowing Trump to do so; (2) force down Trump’s polls to allow the #NeverTrump/Neocon forces at the convention to challenge Trump on policy; (3) Challenge the GOP Convention rules committee to disallow Trump’s nomination. 

Below are Some of Ryan’s Idiotic Positions and Statements

Kate’s Law:

Kate Steinle was gunned down in cold blood by an convicted criminal illegal alien that should have been deported long ago.  To add insult to injury, the gun that was used was stolen from one of our Federal agents! 

On Fox’s Bill O’Reilly show, Ryan’s limp wristed excuse for NOT passing Kate’s Law was that “…what we have to figure out is how do we write Kate’s Law so that we’re not clogging up our jails so much for, say, DUI, but for the true violent criminals?  Oh really!  According to AAA:  “The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports unlicensed drivers are five times more likely to kill, they will flee the scene over 50 percent of the time, five times more likely to drive drunk.”  Illegal is Illegal, dead is dead, and wrong is wrong.  Ryan needs to understand there are absolutes!

Ryan scapegoated that illegal aliens should not be here in the first place.  But, Ryan has supported Open Border policies and benefits for illegals his entire 18 years in Congress.  He also used the need to deal with “Sanctuary Cities” rather than deal with passing Kate’s Law!  Ryan has NEVER written or backed any legislation to eliminate sanctuary cities and he controls the federal funding to States and Cities.  In short, Ryan is a typical do nothing, keep, getting elected, never saw a lobbyist he did not like, RINO!

Funding for Counter Violent Extremism (CVE):

Rush Limbaugh today spent a great deal of time discussing the fact that CVE is really a way for Obama to focus federal law enforcement agencies away from considering any form of Islam as extreme!  Catholics yes, Islamist no!  Even worse, this codified Obama’s paranoia that non-Muslims will target and blame Muslims for attacks such as the one in Orlando!  So, this program not only turns a blind eye to ISLAMIC TERRORISM, but forces resources to be diverted to looking for a non-existent problem!  RYAN AND THE HOUSE LEADERSHIP ARE NOW CONSIDERING GIVING OBAMA AN ADDITIONAL $40,000,000 TO CONTINUE THIS MADNESS!  One more red cent for this madness is nuts and Ryan should not continue funding this madness.

Pausing Refugee and Some Immigration:

Ryan couldn’t wait to find a microphone to badmouth Trump’s support for PAUSING the Syrian Refugee program and some immigration from countries where support for terrorism has been documented.  Ryan stated, “I do not think a Muslim ban is in our country’s interest. I do not think it is reflective of our principles.” Our interest is protecting our citizens first and our principles include the defense of our homeland and protecting the citizens’ right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!  Maybe Ryan should take Civics 101 again!  Once again, Ryan supports the European Style Open Borders to Muslims approach and not only funded the Obama Syrian Refugee Program but increased its funding beyond what was requested. 

Trump’s ban is Temporary so he can assemble our best and brightest, this excludes Ryan, to formulate a solid program of immigrant vetting, relocation criteria, post immigration tracking, and create domestic and international programs to illuminate and eliminate the creation of radical Islamists.

Enhancing the Use of the Terror Watch List for Gun Purchases:

Once again, Ryan almost broke a leg to get in front of the cameras and microphones (he is even faster than Sharpton or Jackson!) and condemn Trump’s raising the question whether we should look at using a terror watch list to restrict the purchase of guns and ammo by would be terrorists.  Trump’s approach was to engage the NRA in a discussion, (I think that is something that Congress should also do), of how to keep weapons out of the hands of terrorists.  One thought would be to use a tool like a “terrorist watch list”, not necessarily the ineffective one we now have, to alert authorities and halt the sale until the purchaser can be given a due process.  Ryan tries to justify his condemnation of Trump as Trump backing away from his 2nd Amendment support even though his position is basically the same as that of the NRA!  Once again, Ryan is taking an anti-Trump position when maybe he should shut up and listen!

OCRM-VTrump

 

Ryan is typically on the wrong side of issues that the GOP electorate is on.  He is typically on the same side of issues as Obama, the Left, and the Neocons! 

So, is Ryan just trying to assert Congressional muscle against Executive policy setting?  Is Ryan trying to force down Trump’s polls so the #NeverTrump/Neocons can challenge Trump on policy at the GOP convention?  Or, is Ryan setting the stage to challenge Trump’ nomination at the convention via the rules committee?

In either event, Ryan is sabotaging our chance of taking over the Presidency.  In fact, he is putting the GOP in the position to lose control over the House or Senate as well.  If the Ryan led GOP anti-Trump forces keep this up, the GOP electorate, and absolutely the independents, will either stay home or vote for Hillary. 

Whatever you think of the Democrats and Hillary, they will never air their dirty laundry in public.  And, heaven knows that Hillary is the most flawed and disliked Democrat nominee in history!
