Obama and Moderation? He is the Master of Deceit and Deception!

President Obama to Liberal Donor Group Yesterday:

“Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision we also have to be rooted in reality.  The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it.”

I spent 9 years interpreting “Obamaspeak”, 1 year as candidate Obama and 8 years as President Obama, so I think I can decipher his double talk as good as anyone.  Lesson one:  Obama is a died in the wool hard core progressive socialist who hates this country, and indeed Western Civilization.  If you start with this lesson, you won’t be sucked into “If you Like Your Doctor, …”.  Allow me to offer my humble interpretation of Obama’s statement shown above.  Read it again just so you have it in mind.

  • “Even as we push the envelope…”:  Interpretation:  As we implement our hard left, progressive, socialist agenda.
  • “… and we hold in our vision…”.  Interpretation:  As we keep deeply rooted in our heart and soul our vision for a hard left progressive, socialist, goal and objective vision and objective for the US and Western Civilization.
  • “The average American …”:  Interpretation:  Those Americans that do not support our hard left progressive, socialist agenda.
  • “…doesn’t think that we…”: Interpretation:  As elite, enlightened members of the hard core progressive, socialist movement.
  • “…have to completely tear down the system and remake it.”:  Interpretation:  We have to replace capitalism with socialism, freedom of the individual and their separate property rights, freedom of speech and action with control of individualism with the collective good, and the elimination of individual wealth and replace it with redistributed equality.

So, What Obama actually “said” was:

“As we implement our hard left, progressive, socialist agenda,  we must keep deeply rooted in our heart and soul, our vision for a hard left progressive, socialist, goal and objective vision and objective for the US and Western Civilization.  Since most Americans do not support our hard left progressive, socialist agenda, as elite, enlightened members of the hard core progressive, socialist movement, we have to replace capitalism with socialism, freedom of the individual and their separate property rights, freedom of speech and action with control of individualism with the collective good, and the elimination of individual wealth and replace it with redistributed equality, all the while espousing MODERATION.”

If Obama is talking, he is lying!

Obama is absolutely, the quintessential politician of all times when it comes to masking, lying, his true intent while sounding like his words just came down the mount with Moses.  When he ran against McCain in 2008, I thought he might be a closet conservative.  He sounded more sincerely conservative than McCain which is not too hard to do.  As a President, it soon became clear that he was a hard core progressive socialist that would do and say anything to move his progressive socialist agenda forward.  

His caution to the 2020 Democrat candidates for President was not a call to them to change their beliefs, but for them to lie to the public and make the public think that you are not a progressive socialist!  LIKE HE DID IN 2008 AND 2012.

Obama could sit next to the gates of hell and convince you that you were about to inhabit a tropical island and you would believe it.  Wonder why he does not endorse Biden?  Biden is not progressive socialist enough for Obama.  Obama does not have any respect for the rest of the 2020 candidates because he does not believe they are talented enough to lie directly to the public and make them believe it.  Look at Warren.  She tried to skirt the cost of Medicare-For-All but finally admitted that her plan would cost $5.2 TRILLION per year.  Obama would have said that his plan would save every family $2,500.00 per year on healthcare.  Oh wait, he did say that!

Lying politicians are nothing new.  The phrase is actually redundant.  But Obama’s ability to obfuscate is legend.  How does he do it?  He believes that his progressive socialist utopia will finally right all of the racial wrongs of Western Civilization and create a perfect society, rand by he and George Soros!

So, while the bumbling Democrats are as awkward as teenagers in the back seat at a drive-in (for those over 60 who remember drive-ins), at trying to impeach President Trump, just remember that Obama is in the wings.  Don’t underestimate his ability to play the pied piper and lead even some seemingly intelligent people to the brink.  He did it in 2008 and 2012.  The media is waiting for him to descend on the mere morals below and save them from themselves, and President Trump!

Your Country, Your Choice… Constitutional Republic Vs Deep State Oligrchy

See the source image

You, and every other US citizen, are witnessing a flagrant attempt to negate Article II of the US Constitution, the section that enumerates the powers of the Executive Branch of our government; and supplant it with an oligarchy of career diplomatic and intelligence community bureaucrats known as the Deep State.  The key question will come down to whether this blatant attempt to abet an outright overthrow the Executive Branch may be a felony under 18 U.S.C.A. § 2384, Seditious Conspiracy.   

Before we go to the current attempts to overthrow President Trump, lets look back at how the “deep state” was created.

See the source image

  1.  Congressional Abdication of Duty:  Over the years, Congress has passed more and more laws that have allowed, ironically, the Executive Branch to “flesh” out, expand, and self-interpret laws by creating regulations that ostensibly define the implementation of the legislative intent.  In reality, the Executive Departments have used this unconstitutional legislative editing to formulate politically biased regulations of duly enacted legislation.  Ostensibly, Congress is supposed to use its oversight powers to regulate the regulators but this rarely if ever happens.  Do you really think that any Congress member actually reads all of the federal regulations that are created?  So, while the US Constitution, in Article I, grants all legislative powers to Congress, Congress has allowed the Executive Branch bureaucrats to usurp this power and twist legislation into their political will.  When was the last time you saw Congress sue the Executive Branch over regulatory overreach?  Never.
  2.  Executive Department Bureaucratic Legislation:  With a license to steal from Congress in interpreting, then regulating, legislation, including how money is spent or not spent, the Executive Branch bureaucracy soon became the true power within the US Government even though they have no Constitutional authority to do so.  JUST THINK, THEY REPLACED ARTICLE I AND ARTICLE II OF THE US CONSTITUTION WITH THEIR OWN SELF GRANTED AUTHORITY!  To make matters worse from a conservative constitutional perspective, leftist Presidents have hired their political appoints as full time bureaucrats within these executive branch departments before they leave office.  This creates a permanent, left-leaning if not outright leftist, permanent bureaucracy that grows and infects more and more as time goes on.
  3.  Enter the Intelligence Communities:  Over time, due to foreign entanglements, wars, and cold wars, the American people were fed numerous justifications for building up both domestic and foreign spying capabilities.  Lets not even use the word, “intelligence”.  Bill Barr was right, lets just call it SPYING.  In sprite of congressional attempts to place controls over the Intelligence Community, (IC), Congress once again failed to perform oversight over the vast capabilities of these 17 or so agencies.  Following 9-11 and the birth of the Patriot Act, coupled with Orwellian advances in technology, electronic and visual spying on US citizens and foreigners, the IC became the ultimate political weapon to be used against its own government.  The IC learned quickly that by scaring citizens with threats of terrorism they could pressure congress to hand over more and more unfettered power to the IC.  One of the most scary tools that came out of this overreach was the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.  This allows the executive branch to literally spy on US citizens and foreigners as long as they get the approval of the FISA courts.  How hard is this to obtain?  Between 1979 through 2015, only 12 of 38,169 spying requests were denied by the FISA courts.  Remember, only the IC investigators/prosecutors are a party to the application.  Their is no due process for the target!  The 4th Amendment was suspended for this process!
  4. Lets Not Forget the Pentagon:  I am extremely pro military and believe to my core that our service men and women are truly honorable and put country before themselves.  But, I do not extend this same belief to the Generals and civilians who run the Pentagon and especially Generals who have retired.  You have witnessed time and time again generals giving interviews, writing op-eds, or even testifying before biased Congressional committees condemning, criticizing, or betraying  their Commander in Chief while they are in uniform, some not, over policy differences.  Our founders specifically created a CIVILIAN led military with the President as its Commander-In-Chief in order to keep a check and balance on the most lethal military force on earth!  While the Pentagon has not yet totally bought into a full membership in the deep state as has the State Department, the CIA, the DOJ, the FBI and the other alphabet IC agencies, they have proven to be less than loyal to their CIC and have overtly thwarted or watered down policy decisions that were not in their power to make.  While the first amendment protects retired generals from voicing their opinions on current foreign policy decisions, they need to look themselves in the mirror and ask themselves whether they would, or could, have voiced those criticisms while on active-duty.  If not, then they should keep quiet for the good of the country.  If the US Military leadership teams up with the deep state regulatory, diplomatic, and IC oligarchy, the US Constitutional Republic is over, PERIOD.
  5. The Press Was the Last Straw:  The main stream media has always had a “left” bent to their reporting.  As we approached the new century, they had become a not so subtle Democrat Party advocate that has morphed into a unabashed left-wing advocacy that is joined at the hip with the left wing of the Democrat Party and global elitist.  They provide cover, or create it, to the endless attacks against a sitting Republican President and even work with the Deep State actors to skew stories in favor of the Deep State and the Democrat Party to work to destroy anyone who challenges their agenda.  With few exceptions today, we do not have a free press.  We have a large population of the press who are merely Democrat leftist propaganda organizations that are joined at the hip wiht multi-national globalist organizations.

So, the Executive Branch bureaucracy has been allowed to grow almost unchecked to the point they function on their own and adhere to policies they think are best for America.  This includes all facets of government including foreign policy, domestic welfare policy, immigration policy, certainly environmental policy, energy policy, fiscal policy, abortion policy, social engineering policy, education policy and certainly military engagement policy.  You almost cannot fire them, remove them, or punish them for misconduct.  They are protected by public sector unions and civil service laws and regulations that shield the deep state almost to the point of impunity.   

As we stated before, the Democrats have learned that before one of their Presidents leave office, they “hire” all of their political appointments into career positions so it is difficult if not impossible for a Republican successor to replace these political appointed deep state employees!  Republicans need to employ the same tactics or change the laws so it is easier to replace employees who hold disdain for the new incumbent.  

The Deep State knows that every 4 or 8 years the will get another political hack to lead their agency that they can ignore and thwart any efforts to curtail their power or implement policies that they disagree with!  They are in their jobs until they want to retire and are rewarded for their loyalty to the deep state, and not the current or even past administration.   Something you should understand is that cabinet and other administrative heads that are appointed by the President, have few if any direct reports other than the person right under them such as the Deputy Attorney General.  All of the department heads in the Department of Justice report to the Deputy and not the actual Attorney General.  The Deputy is usually a “career deep state person” who understands the deep state rules and objectives.  

2016, Turning Point,

Covert Deep State, Led By The IC,

Turns into an Overt Sedition Conspiracy Against a Sitting President

See the source image

During the 2016 Trump Campaign, the media, the deep state, the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign took off their masks and came out full on against the Trump Candidacy.  They were not even sneaky about it!  The DOJ/FBI initiated a “Counter Intelligence” investigation that bypasses the normal checks and balances and allows investigations, leaks and seditious activities to go on below the radar. 

This effort was aided by the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign who funded the creation of the Steele Dossier that really should be called the “Nellie Orr” dossier as she was the primary contributor to its creation.   This coup even enlisted the help of foreign intelligence agencies from at least Australia, Italy, the UK and Italy. The entire Obama administration from the head of the DOJ, FBI, NSC, Ambassador to the UN, the Head of the CIA and other IC members flagrantly unmasked conversations by members of the Trump Team in total violation of the safeguards that are in place to protect such invasions of privacy by members of the administration and the deep state.  

But, this Seditious Conspiracy continued virtually unchecked up through today and continues as it morphed into the current “Impeachment” investigations into President Trump! 

This effort is the very definition of Deep State Sedition against the United States.  Make no mistake, this is not against Donald J. Trump!  It is against the United States of America as a Constitutional Republic.  Donald J. Trump is merely the first officeholder to challenge the Deep State and the Leftist agenda head on and to challenge their very existence in our Republic!

Members of the State Department, the CIA, the NSC, the Military, and even members of the President’s staff continue to leak to their compliant and complicit media to create justifications as to why Trump should be thrown out of office.   They even “attach” these “news” articles, created by their own leaks, as corroborating evidence to support a FISA Warrant application or renewal! This is a full on assault by the Deep State in all of its ugly glory.  

But, what if the impeachment and removal fails and Donald Trump is re-elected for another 4 years?  Trump’s investigations into the Deep State will continue and like an exorcized evil spirit the Deep State will fight back with all of their ugliness.

How Bad Could It Get?

We could go off into all kinds of conspiracy theories but let is suffice to say that the onslaught will continue as it did during the 2nd Reagan term.  The left tried to use the Iran-Contra “scandal” to hamstring the 2nd Reagan term.

If the Republicans do not shoot themselves in the foot and take back the House and hold the Senate, the Left will have to use external pressure to try to stop Trump.  The Deep State will have to use leaks, made up scandals, and international incidents to try to kill Trump’s support.  Inside, agencies, including the Pentagon will continue to thwart the implementation of Trump’s agenda.  He will probably win 80% of the battles which is actually good.  You will probably see the White House staff reduced to a skeleton crew of loyalist.

If the Republicans do shoot themselves in the foot and fail to take back the House but hold the Senate, you will see a re-run of the current impeachment charade.  Worse yet, Trump will not be able to move his agenda forward as Pelosi will continue to stalemate any meaningful Trump agenda efforts.  The courts will continue to be deluged with leftist lawsuits to stop any executive actions by the President.  Healthcare, immigration, tax cuts, military budget increases, and many other Trump cards will be hard fought at best.  The country will suffer by the left does not care as long as they stop Trump from eroding their ill got gains even farther.

If the Republicans do shoot themselves in the foot and fail to take back the House and lose the Senate, Trump will be in for a constant barrage of impeachment inquiries and trials in the Senate.  The leftist may not be able to remove him from office but their end game is to stop his agenda from moving forward.   They will have to fight Trump’s prolific use of his Veto Powers and hopefully they will not be able to get RINOs to vote with them to override.  They can wait 4 years to take back the Presidency as long as they stop Trump!  What a way to run a car wash, let alone the largest and most powerful nation in the world.

Regardless of the scenario, the President will continue to go directly to the American people via social media and public appearances.  He will use whatever tools he can to move his agenda forward and fight it out in court for almost every move he makes.  The good news is that by then he will have appointed about 200 of the 875 Article III federal judges.  He will also most likely appoint another Supreme Court Judge by the end of his 2nd term which will give him a leg up ultimately when battling the left in court.

18 U.S.C.A. § 2384, Seditious Conspiracy.   

As I mentioned the crime of “Seditious Conspiracy” at the beginning of this article, I would like to take a moment to elaborate.  First of all, the Supreme Court has ruled against most efforts to create laws against sedition.  Why?  Sedition is typically viewed as a free speech issue where the offending party attacks the current government over policy.  Thus voicing opposition to policy is a constitutionally protected right.  Some then conclude that Sedition is thus Constitutional…

But, would prior Supreme Court decisions apply when government officials, elected, appointed, and career, collude, not lobby against using their speech, to prohibit a political candidate from being elected; and worse, attempt to frame a sitting President in order to impeach him or her and “overthrow” that administration and thus the Government, by using existing executive branch employees, civilian and military, to accomplish that goal?  In the Supreme Court case of Yates V the United States, the court ruled that citizens could advocate for the forceful overthrow of the US Government as long as long as these EFFORTS WERE PASSIVE AN NOT ACTED UPON.  The current Deep State efforts are anything but passive.

One other wrinkle, the actual text of the Seditious Conspiracy statute:

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

I highlighted the words “by force” as it may be construed as a “limiting” factor when considering this law in the context of the Deep State attempting to fraudulently removing a sitting President/Government.  The Law Dictionary defines force as:

“Power dynamically considered, that is, in motion or in action; constraining power, compulsion; strength directed to an end. Usually the word occurs in such connections as to show that unlawful or wrongful action is meant.”

I do believe that the Supreme Court may be faced with deciding whether the Trump Administration’s Justice Department can charge members of the Obama Administration and the Deep State with Seditious Conspiracy in attempting to remove President Trump from office.  It may also apply to the Trump candidacy as well.

There is no doubt that members of the Obama Administration conspired and acted to stop the Trump candidacy, then to set up felonious charges to use to impeach the President.  The use of a Constitutional process, Impeachment, does not excuse or justify the conspiracy.  Sedition is the crime of  revolting or inciting revolt against the government.  Speech alone is not enough to charge sedition but when actions are taken, force, the term applies to the Statute.

If the DOJ does not charge and ultimately convict the perpetrators, no matter how high up this goes, then our Constitutional Republic will have been nullified.  Article I and Article II of the US Constitution will have been replaced by a Deep State coup d’état.

Trump Impeachment-the “Nuts” and the Bolts!-Part IV

See the source image

OOPS!  Hunter Biden is stepping down as a member of a Chinese government backed securities company, board of directors.  Even worse, Hunter Biden’s attorney stated:

“To date, Hunter has not received any compensation for being on BHR’s board of directors. He has not received any return on his investment; there have been no distributions to BHR shareholders since Hunter obtained his equity interest. Moreover, Hunter played no role in directing or making BHR’s investments. Hunter intends to resign from the BHR board of directors on or by October 31, 2019,”

This statement is priceless.  “…since Hunter obtained his equity interest…”!  How much?    What is it worth?  Is he going sell is shares and donate the proceeds to the American Taxpayers!  How about the statement: “…Hunter played no role in directing or making BHR’s investments.”  So, Hunter received free equity, shares of stock, but did not have to do anything in return!  Unless the value of his father’s political clout was payment enough!  Just substitute the name “Hunter” with “Don Jr.” and guess how the PLMSM would howl!   This follows Hunter’s resignation from the Ukraine company Burisma board of directors earlier this year!  Did he get free equity in Burisma?  If so; how much; what is it worth; is he going to sell these shares and donate the proceeds to the American Taxpayers?

But wait, there is more!  The attorney went on to say:

“Hunter Biden would not partake in any foreign business dealings “under a Biden administration.”  

So, it wasn’t wrong but I won’t do it again if Dad is elected.  What if dear old dad is not elected but another democrat is?  Other than China and the Ukraine, where else has Hunter been raking in cash on behalf of dear old dad”

Round 2 Coming

DOJ Inspector General and Barr Investigation Results:  On the immediate horizon is the release of DOJ Inspector General report regarding FISA abuse and other related spying activities by the Obama Administration’s intelligence services against the Trump campaign and the Trump Administration.  Shortly thereafter, US Attorney John Durham and the Barr DOJ will start releasing their findings into an expanded investigations on the alleged spying by the Obama administration intelligence services, foreign agencies, and State Department, on the Trump campaign. The latter has been expanded into looking at continued spying activities up to and including the beginning of the Mueller investigations.  

So, what started as allegations of “collusion” with the Russians by the Trump campaign, morphed into alleged impeachable offenses by President Trump offering aid in exchange for investigations into foreign meddling into our 2016 elections and other corruption in Ukraine by US officials, including VP Joe Biden and his family.  Now, it has been learned that the Trump phone call with the Ukraine PM did not include “quid pro quo”, or included any wrong doing by Trump outside of his Constitutionally mandated duties.  Now, the Hunter Biden forays into international influence peddling is literally blowing up in the faces of the PLMSM, Pelosi, Schiff, the Biden family, and the DNC.  

If the Inspector General and the Barr report prove damning to the Obama Administration and its intelligence services, the PLMSM will have great difficulty keeping the focus on alleged Trump miscues.  That does not mean they will not try!  It will get uglier before it gets better.

Imagine a female, Black, transsexual, DACA recipient, CIA officer with a Spanish surname, who alleges sexual assault by Trump, Kavanaugh, and AG Barr, at their high school prom, together, coming forward, flanked by Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Maxine Waters, and Senator Feinstein!  OMG!  CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and some on Fox are going to go apoplectic!  Mitt Romney will probably faint on the Senate floor.  This won’t end until Trump defeats whoever the Democrat nominee is and the Republicans take back the House and gain seats in the Senate in 2020…

Watch out for increased violence as the 2020 election approaches.  Be careful and stay vigilant…

Trump Impeachment-the “Nuts” and the Bolts!-Part III

Note:  As I was writing this article, I received an alert from Breitbart that a “Whistleblower” from the IRS filed a complaint that either President Trump or Vice President Pence had improperly “interfered” with the IRS audit of either Trump or Pence!  

The first installment (https://wp.me/pY51c-1js) of this topic talked about the Progressive-Left/Main Stream Media (PLMSM) and their repeated use of baseless allegations to entrap President Trump or his cabinet or appointees in “scandals” that rise to the crisis point of a “constitutional crisis” and as such impeachment!  We discussed the insane levels to which the PLMSM would go to regain power after the 2016 Presidential defeat of Clinton.  In the second installment (https://wp.me/pY51c-1jB) we discussed the repetitive playbook script that the PLMSM were and would follow until they drive this President from Office.

“Whistleblower Weaponized”

Today, I am warning you that use of the “Whistleblower” statute and regulations will become the favored tool to target President Trump, his cabinet and his appointees and supporters. Why use the whistleblower cover?  Because this ruse was devised by idiotic RINOs and the PLMSM to allow employees in government to “tattle” on their peers without fear of reprisal or being outed.  The “whistleblower” is also able to pass on here-say and uncorroborated information.  Once leaked to the media, it becomes fact until the target can scrape enough info together to refute the allegations.  But, by then, most of the pubic would have heard the allegations and ultimately only a small percent of those would have heard the exculpatory rebuttal. 

So, the PLMSM now has a tool they can use to impugn anyone they deem a threat from a lowly Secretary of State, a Supreme Court Justice, a Secretary of Commerce, and, did I forget, the President of the United States!  Facts are irrelevant.  It is the SERIOUSNESS of the Allegation is what is important.  This allows the RINOs like Mitt Romney, and his new cohort, Mike Lee and others to feign outrage that X would have committed such a despicable act, if true.  They always add the “if true” just to make themselves more saintly!

So what do the PLMSM have in store for President Trump and his supporters?  Here are a couple of juicy tidbits that I am sure they can find someone in John Brennon’s old CIA or Hillary Clinton’s State Department to confirm and tweet on their whistle!

  • I am sure that they will use the IRS and the ongoing IRS audits of the Trump organization and the President himself.  I am sure they will allege some impropriety of pressure being levied on one of the many auditors who is looking into the obviously corrupt Trump Organization.  Coincidently, this will give Schiff and his ilk the absolutely “necessity” to look at Trump’s tax returns for the past 323 years!  Of course, Schiff would never leak any of the confidential tax information…
  • They will go after Vice President Pence as well as President Trump.  Remember, Nancy Pelosi is 2nd in succession if Trump is impeached and if Pence is likewise impeached, Aunt Nancy is now your President!  I’ll bet money on this one!  It does the PLMSM no good to just get rid of Trump, they have to damage Pence as well just to make sure he cannot run effectively against any of Sleeping Beauty’s (Nancy Pelosi) seven dwarfs who are the Democrat Presidential Candidates.
  • The State Department is replete with Obama era holdovers who would be glad to avenge the “Hillary Loss” and whistle blow some “facts” regarding President Trumps foreign policy missteps like with North Korea but most likely with RUSSA, just to stay on theme!  The PLMSM would immediately push to hear and publish all of the transcripts of every meeting and phone call between Trump and Putin or anyone else who uses Russian Salad Dressing on their salad!
  • Just for Hooters, they could dredge up an ex-playboy bunny or even more despicable, perhaps a porn star, to accuse Trump, maybe a stretch to include Pence but you never know of doing the deed in the oval office.  I never claimed that the PLMSM were deep thinkers capable of too many nefarious plots.  (I should look at some John Grisham novels to make sure I did not miss an obvious plot.)
  • There are always Trump’s banks that could provide a who new batch of “whistleblowers”, real or imagined, to trump up all kinds of improprieties!  The only people who are hated more than rich people are bankers!  Bankers for rich people are a bonus!

My point is that this impeachment parade of horrors will not end with the current non-impeachable crisis surrounding Trump’s Ukrainian phone call.  The PLMSM are kind of like an addicted gambler at a slot machine.  One more quarter is bound to pay off!  They are so used to their playbook paying dividends that they cannot imagine losing to TRUMP!  After all, he is an idiot, and a despicable deplorable morally repugnant sub-human being who does not deserve to rise to the level of let’s say, Bill Clinton! 

See the source image

So, buckle up, chin-up, stock up on wine or whatever you need to survive the continued SH@$show.  It won’t end when Trump is re-elected for another 4 years.  They can never admit they were wrong and more importantly, incompetent. 

Also, say a prayer every night for President Trump and all of those who support and surround him…

See the source image

After all, it just the fate of the world that is at stake!

Don’t Pay ANY ATTENTION to Polls on the Whistleblower Allegations or on Trump Impeachment

Yesterday we visited some of the reasons why the entire “Whistleblower” Ukraine Impeachment story (link: https://wp.me/pY51c-1js) is pure bunk and a figment of the PLMSM (Progressive-Left Main Stream Media). 

Today, we will layout the PLMSM strategy regarding how they will use fabricated allegations, fake news, the Democrat House Committees, and Polling to get you to fall for their BS and think that everyone but you support impeaching President Trump.

The Strategy:

The PLMSM is stuck on stupid and are using the same playbook time and time again; and they are expecting a different result each time!  (remember what Albert Einstein said about the definition of STUPIDITY) 

  1. Create a false story using supposed “credible sources”, primarily inside of the IC (Intelligence Community).  During the Russia Hoax they even solicited false information from foreign intelligence sources including US allies.  Many sources will be from inside of the IC or those with alleged ties to “patriots” inside of the IC.
  2. Leak the Fake Story to the MSM so they can publish articles supporting the Fake Story.  These same stories, based on the same fake info from fake sources, will be used as evidence that the soon to be public Trump Impeachable offense must be true.  If you read or hear these stories in the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Politico, or other left-wing or RINO sources, do not fall for the false allegations.  
  3. Dem House Leadership and House Committee Chairmen will immediately rush to the cameras and decry yet another “Trump High Crime or Misdemeanor” that must be an impeachable offense against this great nation that only these “patriotic” Democrats can protect you from.  Pelosi and her sidekick AOC will be the first to decry the morally bankrupt Trump and his administration.  (More on this dynamic duo below)
  4. The MSM will immediately fill up their political water buckets and carry the water for the Progressive-Left by running the Fake News allegations 24-7.  They will drag out the “best” legal analysts, who have yet to be right, and you can include the Fox News “Judge” Napolitano and Kellyanne Conway’s hubby, George.  As is the case in the Ukraine hoax, they will ignore any exculpatory information and totally disclaim any wrongdoing by anyone on the Progressive-Left.
  5. Finally, they will create Fake Polls to back up their story that the American People see how despicable President Trump is along with anyone else who dares to support his deplorable behavior.  How?  By modifying the sample.  If you think Polls are either scientific or unbiased, run two laps around the block and listen.  Polls are manipulated by changing the sample size of left-wingers versus Trump supporters.  This goes for polls showing “independents” who think Trump, Kavanaugh, or the entire Republican Party should be impeached or executed.
    1. Question:  Are you and independent?  Answer: Yes
    2. Question:  Who did you vote for in 2016?  Answer:  Hillary
    3. Question:  Do you think Trump should be investigated for xxxx?  Answer:  Yes
    4. The Hillary response pigeonholes this person into the left-wing camp and the independent response is the key to the category.  Of course they are more subtle than this but this gives you an idea how the polls are skew when you add in that the pollsters then sample 50%  “Democrats”; 20% Independents who voted for Hillary; 30% Trump supporters.  By tweaking these percentages, a poll can say anything you want!  Enough negative polls and you start to think that something is wrong with you if you still support the President.  Worse, RINOs in Congress say, “See I told you this President is not a real Republican!”

So:

  1. Create a Fake Narrative with Fake Sources
  2. Leak the Fake Narrative to the Fake Press to create Fake News
  3. Dem Leadership and Committee Chairpersons support the Fake Narrative with the Fake MSM.
  4. MSM runs 24-7 stores supporting the Fake Narrative and the impeachment of the President or someone else they want to use as a straw man or woman.
  5. MSM creates Fake Polls to Support the Fake Narrative and the Trump Impeachment.

There really won’t be much deviation this playbook ever.  Just look back at the Access Hollywood “Scandal”, The Stormy Daniels Scandal, the Playboy Bunny Scandal, the Russia Hoax, the Don Jr. scandal, the Michael Cohen related scandal, and every other “major” scandal surrounding Donald Trump, his candidacy or his Presidency.  Every time the reaction and the results were the same.  Supporters of the President hung in with him; RINOs acted all flustered and nervous; PLMSM when absolutely bonkers to the point their supporters are now psychotic and dangerous.

So, when the next scandal hits, take a deep breath!  Make a checklist for yourself that includes:

  • The title of the Trump “scandal”
  • The date the allegation was first leaked
  • The date the Dem leaders and committee members ran to the cameras to decry the scandal.
  • The date the MSM starting running 24-7 hit jobs on the President
  • When the first polls started showing support for impeachment.
  • File this checklist and wait for the next “scandal”!

Some of these items may be concurrent but the bullet points will be the same.  If you want, just watch Mitch Romney,  Mike Lee, Judge Napolitano, George Conway, Chris Wallace or Bill Krystal for a clue that you are at least in phase 2 or 3 of the PLMSM game.

Don’t expect this onslaught of the President to end even if he is re-elected to a 2nd term.  Remember, this is a battle to the death for the Progressive-Left.  Donald J. Trump is the antithesis of the Progressive-Left and the number one target of George Soros and the international globalist Progressive-Left. 

Too many pundits are painting Pelosi as giving into AOC+3 on impeachmentPelosi and AOC are one and the same, the water girls for George Soros et al.  At the age of 80, Nancy is the soon to be the retired water girl and AOC, or some other Soros surrogate will take her place.  The goal is to replace our Constitutional Republic with a Socialist regime. 

This PLMSM anti-Trump game plan had been set way in advance of the Trump election.  Soros and his ilk read every word that Trump had ever written, especially in his book, “The America We Deserve”.  Soros had to stop him at any price. 

You might wonder why a multi-billionaire like Soros and Buffet want to take down our Republic?  Simple, during the 2008 Financial Crisis, that was aided and abetted by Soros and Buffet and their lackeys in the government, these two, and many others of their ilk, walked in after the “people” were decimated financially, and bought up banks, buildings and other assets for cents on the dollar.  They will do this again and again after creating the bubble, swoop in and swoop up the cash.  Trump is standing in their way!

Global Financial Crisis Looming, George Soros Warns

Trump Impeachment-the “Nuts” and the Bolts!

Deja vu All Over Again!  

Ironically the Russian Hoax, the Kavanaugh Hoax,  and the new Ukraine “Whistleblower” impeachment fervor are linked.  They are also predictive of continuing Progressive-Left/Main Stream Media (PLMSM) future attacks on Donald J. Trump, his presidency, and his supporters.  

The attacks are an admission by the PLMSM that the Trump Presidency is successful in rolling back over 5 decades of Progressive sponsored erosion of our Constitution, our moral fabric as a nation, our rule of law; and an admission that they cannot defeat this President based on policy and political positions at the ballot box either in 2020.

The conservative media and its pundits attribute the PLMSM anti-Trump assault as being a personal hatred of President Trump.   IT IS NOT!  It is a visceral reaction to Trump stopping their Progressive Movement in its tracks while creating an electorate of informed, America-First, anti-socialist, voters that include men and women of all races.  To make matters worse, Trump is taking his show on the international road and talking down their Progressive Globalism, Socialism, and social reconstruction.  Trump is Sunlight to a Vampire; the Cross to Satan; Kryptonite to Superman; and the Anti-Christ to the PLMSM.  Hatred is merely a tool being used to destroy the Trump agenda and accomplishments.  

“Bolts” Before “Nuts”

The “Bolts” of the current “Trump-Ukrainian Crisis” include:

  • The Trump/Ukrainian allegations of wrong-doing by a President was brought by a “Whistleblower” who had no first hand knowledge of his allegations against the President and thus the allegations were based on “hear-say” testimony that is prohibited in our criminal justice system.
  • A “Whistleblower”, who only had 2nd or 3rd hand knowledge of an alleged wrongdoing, would have been prohibited from filing a “whistleblower” claim prior a change in IC regulations that were uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the “Whistleblower” complaint was filed!  Prior to this change, the IC regulations followed long standing US judicial principles that a witness must, provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings.”  This change was made roughly at the same time that the “Whistleblower” claim was filed!  Sounds like an extension of the “Me-Too” movement where the rule of law is stood on its head in favor of the allegation.
  •  The Intelligence Community Inspector General, (ICIG) Michael K. Atkinson, marked his referral of the “Whistleblower” complaint to the Acting Director of Intelligence, and Democrat Adam Schiff as “Urgent Concern”, based on the IG’s assessment that President Trump may have violated Campaign Finance Laws by soliciting help against one of his political opponents from the Ukraine that would may then been an “in-kind” contribution. 
  • Campaign Finance laws are outside of the purview of the IC and its IG. The ICIG could witness a murder by the President but not be empowered to report it via the “urgent concern” regulations!
  • Based on current law, the ICIG is only authorized to receive “Urgent-Concern” “Whistleblower” complaints on “…an employee (or contractor) of an element of the Intelligence Community…”, 50 U.S.C. § 3033(k)(5)(A).  The President of the United States is not considered to be an employee nor a contractor of the IC and thus NOT subject to ICIG purview.
  •  The President of the United States and the Ukrainian Government are required to provide legal assistance to each other on criminal matters.  The TREATY WITH UKRAINE ON MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS” was signed by President Clinton on July 22nd, 1998!  Ukraine has been subjected to political corruption for years.  President Trump was invoking this Treaty to request criminal investigative assistance on corruption in Ukraine that may involve US and Ukrainian citizens.  As stated by President Clinton, “It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state.” 
  • As a Treaty, complianced and execution is mainly under the purview of the Secretary of State as well as the President supportedc by his justice and intelligence agencies.  So, it is not inconsistant that the State Department would ask a seasoned prosecutor like Rudy Giuliani, to vet the Biden and Crowd Strike allegations of criminal behavior with the Ukrainian government.  The DOJ/FBI would only be brought into the investigation as the behest of the State Department.
  • Under the US/Ukrainian Treaty, there are NO provisions exempting political candidates from being the target of such criminal referrals or requests for investigative assistance.  President Obama, and his Vice President Joe Biden requested assistance from the Ukrainians to investigate candidate Trump and Paul Manafort prior to the 2016 election.   If political candidates were shielded from investigation or prosecution, I am sure John Gotti would have ran for Mayor of NY!
  • Under Federal Elections Commissions regulations, or their enabling statutes, there are no restrictions on who can be referred to investigative and prosecutorial International, Federal, State or local agencies.  There are also no FEC regulations that define in-kind contributions as those gained as a result of International, Federal, State or local agency investigations or prosecutions.  Political candidates cannot hide behind their candidacy in order to avoid justified investigation or prosecution.  In 2015-6, the Obama administration and its law enforcement and IC agencies, placed President Trump and his campaign staff and organization under criminal and national security investigations.  Any objections then by the PLMSM?

There are many other “bolts” that we can review but these frame the character of the allegations, the purview of the DNI and its IG, and the autonomy of the Presidency regarding IG investigations.  Do we really want our President’s conversations with foreign leaders to be on the front page of the New York Times and show cased on CNN!  I think not.

The “Nuts”

The “Nuts” are easy to spot and include all of the bona fide members of the PLMSM.  Congressman Adam Schiff is probably the most visible along with the Speaker, Nancy Pelosi.

See the source image

 

Jerry Nadler would liked to be the Head-Nut and is trying his worst to edge out Schiff.  Then you have the lessor nuts, not in terms of nuttiness but stature, that include AOC+3, Elijah Cummings, John Lewis, Maxine Waters, and a whole host of others.  The “Nuts” are supported by members of the MSM and notably led by CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, and the failing New York times…  

But, don’t assume that the “Nuts” / PLMSM are comedic characters.  They are not,  They are as serious as is the loss of freedom in the US.  They have unlimited resources, they stick together, and they seek to win regardless of the consequences.  The current “President Trump Ukrainian Crisis of the Week” is merely a step in their playbook to destroy the Trump administration and his policies to reverse the Progressive-Left annihilation of the US Constitution, capitalism, and our rule of law.  When this crisis has been debunked, they will surface a new one in its place. 

The PLMSM has set the stage to use IC and administration leakers to leak to the press, use hear-say whistleblowers, and supporting press attacks to create more and more “impeachable” crimes perpetrated by President Trump.  The PLMSM knows that the citizens of the US are not supportive of its Progressive-Left candidates or their agenda.  They must try to drive out Trump or tire his base and reduce his support among the voters.  So far Trump has stood his ground.  How much more can oned human being take?

  The use by the PLMSM of our IC against the President is an attack on our Constitutional Republic that features a strong Executive.  They seek to created an Executive Branch that responds more like a Parliamentary Government’s Primed Minister that is subject to the political winds of the day.  One that its Press and the left can eliminate if they disagree with its policies.  One where an oligarchy of elected and unelected officials can use to control foreign and domestic policy and eventually ensconce the US deeply in a Progressive, Globalist, Socialist, and social reconstructed society.

Remember, They Were One Election Short of Their Goal in 2016!

Did the Intelligence Community IG Actively Aid the “Whistleblower” in His Impeachment Quest

The Metamorphosis of the GOP Under President Trump

MAGA4Eva!

The election of President Lincoln in 1860 birthed the newly formed Republican Party as a legitimate force in American politics.  The party was formed in 1854 to oppose the continued expansion of slavery into newly explored and settled western territories acquired though the Louisiana Purchase.  At the core of its principles was the new Republican Party’s opposition to the Kansas-Nebraska Act that was staunchly supported by the Democrats led by Stephan A. Douglas.  The act allowed further expansion of slavery into these new territories.

See the source image

Lincoln’s election as the head of a fledgling party was historical and game changing for the Republican Party and the Nation.  The election of Donald J. Trump in 2016 may well rival Lincoln’s historical election, hopefully without a second Civil War, hopefully.

Lincoln faced a nation deeply divided by the institution of slavery and the threat of Southern Democrat let States to leave the union.  Trump also is facing a deeply divided nation based on the scope, nature and future of our founded Constitutional Republic.  While the divide is less defined by geography, it is no less hate filled, pitting family members and others against one another.  Both Presidents faced a real threat of the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

In the 1900’s, the Republican Party edged its way towards progressive globalism and away from the focus on the American people, their inalienable rights, the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.  It adopted the internationalist, interventionalist goals of the Neo-Conservatives, (actually created by Bill Krystal’s father who was a Democrat!), which moved the Republican Party into the globalist realm.     Ironically, the 2nd Republican Platform Plank in 1860 clearly restated our founding principles based on American, not global or international principles, and that the individual, all men (and women), the governed, are the apex of our government’s power and we were granted this power by our Creator!

“2.  That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in the Declaration of Independence and embodied in the Federal Constitution, “That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” is essential to the preservation of our Republican institutions; and that the Federal Constitution, the rights of the states, and the Union of the states, must and shall be preserved.” 

See the source image

If you follow Donald Trump’s rallies and speeches, these principles and God given rights are reinforced constantly.  Abraham Lincoln, and the infant Republican Party, embraced these same principles and rights in the face of Democrat Party opposition and their seditious activities.  The same is true today!  In 1860, the Democrats were trying to overturn the US Constitution, the inalienable rights of slaves, and their actions led to the Civil War.  In 2019, the Democrats are trying to overturn the US Constitution, and the inalienable rights of free peoples by destroying the electoral processes contained in the Constitution, and enslaving the American Peoples by adopting centralized, big government socialism.  Ironically, the 6th Plank of the Republican Platform of 1860 called out the “Swamp” and its inherent corruption:

“6. That the people justly view with alarm the reckless extravagance which pervades every department of the Federal Government; that a return to rigid economy and accountability is indispensable to arrest the systematic plunder of the public treasury by favored partisans; while the recent startling developments of frauds and corruptions at the federal metropolis, show that an entire change of Administration is imperatively demanded. “

The New Trump Republican Party that is forming eschews globalism, internationalism, interventionalism, and refocuses on the governed predominance over the government and the governed inalienable rights given to them by God, our creator.  In short, Trump branded this re-planking of the Party as “America First”, implying, “Americans’ Sovereignty First”. 

But, the good old boys Republican Party is not going quietly and is joined by the radical left Democrat Party and their lap dog media.  RINOs like Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, and countless others sit on the sidelines ready to pounce on any opportunity they can to attack Trump and his supporters.  The Democrat Party is continuing its seditious activities that they started under the Obama Administration to use our national security agencies and law enforcement agencies to spy on and attack the Trump candidacy, then his Presidency.  Both of these groups espouse anti-American ideals and seek to regain power by destroying our Constitution’s check and balances and the sovereignty of the governed.  

As President Trump continues to succeed in rebuilding our economy, our national defense, our border sovereignty, and returning our rights as granted by our Creator to “We the People”, his hegemony over the Republican Party grows stronger every day.  Even RINO hold-overs in Congress are being marginalized more and more and the Real Republicans, the people, ignore their anti-Trump rhetoric.  Trump has returned the Republican Party back to its members and pushed out the so-called power brokers who support the US Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, and international organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations.  Trump only has one simple principle, “Is a policy good for Americans, if so, adopt it.”

The Tea Parties started the movement to take back America, Trump is memorializing it!  This is why the Left and the RINOs tried to kill the Tea Party Movement.

Trump Manipulates the Media Again and Puts the “Squad” Front and Center in Democrat Party!

See the source image

President “D” did it again!  He tweaked the Media and the Leftist Democrats into bringing the Squad back to the forefront of the Democrat Party and totally obliterated any coverage of the weak primary candidates.  He also took the wind out of Pelosi’s gun control sails!  There is no doubt that the old line leadership of the Democrat Party is feckless in dealing with the President and their own radical members of Congress!

See the source image

This latest misdirection involved the two radical, Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Semitic members, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.  They shunned the Pelosi led delegation to the Middle East then tried to visit Israel on their own.  Their efforts were aided and abetted by Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against the State of Israel) radical groups who seek to eliminate Israel as a State and replace it with a Palestinian State.  Tlaib actually said she wanted to visit “Palestine” rather than recognize the existence of the State of Israel. 

Trump supported Israel denying them entrance into Israel as they were intent on using the trip to promote BDS and Palestine as the one State solution with the elimination of the Israeli State.  Israel rightly denied them entrance.  Tlaib later request a humanitarian visa to allow her to visit her Palestinian grandmother.  Israel granted her this accommodation then Tlaib rejected the offer blaming Israel for forcing her to not visit her grandmother as she would have to basically keep her mouth shut while in Israel.  

Of course, the left-wing media and the out-maneuvered Democrat leadership blamed Trump and Israel for denying this poor girl the right to visit her aged grandmother.  But, it was Tlaib’s choice to opt out of the visit.  The President continued to rub salt in Tlaib’s wounded ego by ending one tweet with the statement, “The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother,  She doesn’t have to see her now!

What happened to Pelosi and Schumer’s gun control push?   What happened to the Democrat Primary and their media coverage?  What happened to the Media drumbeat promoting that the US was most certain to go into a recession?  TRUMP HAPPENED!  He used the squad again to completely make Pelosi and Schumer irreverent; made the media chase the new shiny object of Trump colluding with Israel to deny a member of Congress entrance into Israel; he used the news about the squad to completely overshadow Democrat leadership and raised serious questions regarding the actual strength of the Democrat leadership!

The funny thing is that the President doesn’t even have to break a sweat to dominate the news cycle.  The left will ultimately shoot themselves in the foot and he is standing by to help them reload!

The only left-wing winner last week was Fredo Cuomo as this dust-up took the spotlight away from his idiotic rant!

2020-Lefty Democrat Party, Talk About the Wrong Stuff For America!

Dem 2020 Presidential Candidates-And These Are NOT the Nuttiest!

See the source image

Welcome to the New Democrat Party.  I have been writing for years that my old Democrat Party has been hijacked by the radical, globalist, anarchist Left, hell bent on destroying the greatness of the US as we are the last bastion of hope for freedom throughout the world.  Our European ancestors have already succumbed to Leftist ideology of open borders, government control of their economies, and an ever increasing erosion of personal freedom and personal property autonomy.

The current slate of Democrat Presidential candidates espouse (compilation of current promises):

  • Reversing the 2017 Tax and Regulatory cuts and even increasing taxes way beyond Pre-2017 levels
  • Abortion on demand including post birth abortion
  • Expanding the Supreme Court and adding more liberal justices
  • Eliminate the Electoral College and elect the President based on popular vote
  • The passing of the Green New Deal (GND) (highlights below)
    • Bans affordable energy via fossil fuel production and use
    • Eliminates Nuclear Energy even though it as green as anything they propose
    • Eliminate 99% of all combustion engine automobiles and replace them with “electric” cars
    • Gut and Rebuild every building in the US and make them “green” compliant
    • Eliminate air travel and replace it with rail transportation
    • Government Guarantee of a Job for Everyone!
    • Free Education for life for all Americans, and any other nationality who wishes to walk into America
    • Government will provide healthy food to every “person” in the US
    • Government provided safe, affordable, adequate housing for everyone (like the homeless in California?)  K. Harris wants to give money for housing to persons of color and recreate the 2008 Great Recession
    • Guaranteed income for everyone including those who are unable or unwilling to work
    • Ban meat to get rid of the farting cows
  • Open Borders; decriminalization of illegal border entry
  • Government run healthcare via “Medicare” for all
  • The weakening of our military
  • Wide expansion of gun-control
  • Federal legalization of Marijuana and other illicit drugs
  • Granting more control over the US by International organizations such as the UN and the WTO
  • Kill all of Trump’s Trade deals and allow the outsourcing of our industries and jobs
  • Slavery Reparations
  • Pardoning 50% of all federal prisoners
  • Forgive all student loan debt
  • More money for teachers and public schools
  • Eliminate charter school subsidies.
  • Forced Busing to achieve desegregation of our schools

None of the candidates have any clue how to pay for these programs and most of the programs have only marginal public support.  So what?  If they win, keep the House and take back the Senate, the Left will erase the gains made by the US under Trump and FastTrack these leftist anti-American programs.  ELECTIONS DO MATTER AND THIS ONE MORE THAN MOST.

The Left “A” Squad

See the source image

If the 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidates don’t scare you to death, just consider how whacky the “Big Four Squad” of Democrats are and these women have already been elected to Congress in the 2018 Mid-Terms!  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley make up the squad and their disdain for everything American doesn’t exclude the Democrat Party.  This group actively promotes anti-Semitism, utter disdain for anyone white, promotes overt hatred for Israel, totally dismisses our history and our heritage as deeply flawed and worthless, and believes our Constitution is worthless.  In short, they represent the anarchist left-wing of the now Democrat Party.  Is this too harsh of a characterization of the Squad?  Consider the definition of an anarchist:  “a person who rebels against any authority, established order, or ruling power.”  

This group is driving the far left-wing platform of the 2020 Democrat candidates to the point Joe Biden can’t keep up!  This group is trying to overtake and pass the leftist takeover of Europe in terms of left-wing globalist policy and national identity destruction. The Squad exhibits no love for America, its values, history, or its

European Model:

I have written about the fact that Europe capitulated to this Leftist movement when they formed the European Union (EU) and wiped out national borders throughout Europe and concentrated power in the EU’s Parliament, European Council, and other such bodies.  Local national autonomy has been replaced by a super-body of like-minded globalist bureaucrats in Brussels. 

The population of the EU is 500,000,000 people with a combined GDP of $18.75 Trillion, second only to the US and $6 Trillion higher than China.  I suggest that Europe is as big a danger to the US as China or Russia but in a different way.  Europe and the US used to be considered “the West”.  Europe has basically abandoned their Western values and national boundaries and supplanted their sovereignty with semi-open borders and erased capitalism with socialism in terms of centralized control over sovereign nations and their economies.   Basically, with Germany as the strongest nation in the EU, Germany was able to consoldiate Europe without firing a shot!  I am sure Hitler is looking up from hell shaking his head!

Their risk to the US is their propensity to seek peace at all cost; an unwillingness to defend itself; and a willingness to abandon free speech and other freedoms for the “common good”.  If Europe is attacked from within or without, the US has to defend them.  At that point in time it may or may not be in our national interest but we will not have a choice, as long as their is a Pro-America President in the White House.  If we have a Leftist President, he or she will preside over what will basically be a surrender to the invading forces.  After all, it is the “Wests” fault that they were empire building slave traders who have ruined our earthly utopia! 

World War III will be much different than the last world conflagration as nuclear weapons will be in the mix and our enemies ability to micro-target civilian populations will be a deciding factor.  With heavy populations of Islamist within each of the European nations, Europe will have to fight both an external and internal enemy!

Post 2020 Democrat Presidential Victory-The American Epilogue

You can take to the bank the fact that one of the left-leaning Democrat Presidential candidates will win the Democrat primary, and the winner will most likely be female.  This will ensure that the winner is an ultra-left-wing progressive that will probably make Bernie Sanders look normal.  Further, add in the possible expansion of the Squad with more radicals who hate America,  The result is not a pretty picture!

Impact of a Left Takeover of the Government: 

  • Increasing Corporate and personal tax rates for all Americans, yes the Middle-Class will get creamed as they are needed to fund the left-wing follies, and reinstituting business/job killing regulations will reverse all of our economic gains since 2017. 
  • Effectively killing the fossil fuel industry and reverting to green energy dominance will stifle any further economic growth. 
  • Medicare-for-all will destroy the healthcare sector and destroy the well-being of American citizens. 
  • Opening the borders will bankrupt States, Counties, Cities and School Districts as they will have to shoulder the bulk of the burden to support millions of new residents who are deficient in the English language and who have little or no education.  This, at a time, when robotics are being developed to eliminate low skilled jobs.  The mass influx of poorly educated residents will strangle STEM programs that are needed to maintain our international competitiveness as educational resources will have to focus on remedial education. 
  • The open borders will eliminate any possible control over the influx of illicit drugs and human trafficking.  Our Opioid crisis will explode again accompanied by other drugs of equal or greater lethality.  
  • The bankrupting of the cities will usher in an unprecedented level of homelessness that will make our ghettoes on par with the worst third world countries. 
  • The open borders will also reintroduce heretofore erradicated diseases and infect our populations with new strains of mutated illnesses. 
  • With government takeover of healthcare, our drug industry will have fewer resources to combat these new viral and bacterial enemies. 
  • Hospitals and clinics will close do to a lack of reimbursement from the government healthcare system as we witness under Obamacare.  But, under Obamacare, 170,000,000 Americans kept their employer provide healthcare.  Imagine if all of those Americans are suddenly dumped on to the government run system…

And that does not even touch the degradation of our military and our lack of reediness to combat foreign threats.  Am I exaggerating?  Not really.  Prior to Trump being elected, 70,000 manufacturing plants closed over the past 20 years.  Job participation rates fell as more and more US citizens left the workplace.  Our dependence on foreign oil tied our hands when dealing in the Middle East and kept us captive to our own need for energy.  

So, don’t laugh too much at the nutty rhetoric and programs that are hitting the airwaves from the Candidates or currently elected Democrats like from the Squad.  These people are 100% backed by the majority of the Main Stream Media who will spin bankruptcy into economic security and the killing of born alive babies into healthcare.  Oh, I forgot, they already do!

Better think hard about your vote in 2020…  A wrong vote and the die will be cast that cannot be reversed…

Trump’s G-20: Great Way to Get 19 Nations Together So He Can Negotiate With Them!

See the source image

During the G-20 that just concluded in Japan, President Trump used that forum to sit down with and meet with almost every leader of the G20 Nations.  Trump does not view G-20 meeting or its smaller counterparts as a way for the world to get together to solve problems.  He sees them as a way for him to have everyone he needs to meet with and negotiate with come to one place so he merely has to go from room to room to have one on one sessions.  The President learned early on that the “G” meetings were merely a forum to have large international meetings, most of which involved milking the US or criticizing the US, then issuing a document that basically said how great it was and that we shall do this again!  Trump does not meet for the sake of meeting!  Either you accomplish something or you don’t meet.  

Just prior to the G-20 meetings, the President was determined to try to jump-start the negotiations with North Korea that have been stalled since February 28th, 2019.  He and Kim had corresponded several times since the President walked-out in Hanoi.  The President sees this relationship as one that is critical to world peace and stability.  Trump used his Twitter-Diplomacy to send an “official” request to Kim to meet at the DMZ, Kim accepted!  So much for State Department Protocol!

So, starting with the meeting with Kim in North Korea, let’s look at a couple of other substantial accomplishments that took place over the past few days in Japan, South Korea, and North Korea. 

Trump-Kim Meeting in North Korea:

Every literate person by now has seen, heard or read that President Trump met North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un in South Korea then crossed over into North Korea.  This is the first time ever that an serving American President has visited North Korea, ever.  

See the source image

There is no doubt that the Secret Service had to replenish their toilet paper supply following this meeting!  The DMZ is protected by heavily armed snipers and security on both sides.  NK Security on the ground was armed and within feet of our President.  Their snipers were trained on our President and the US and South Korean contingency the entire time.  If a firecracker had gone off, this scene could have erupted into a firefight of disastrous proportions!  As it was, there was a few confrontations with our press and the President’s communications staff.  Tensions were high.

To appreciate the gutsiness of this move by the President, remember that Kim may be the leader of this dark nation, but his reign is precarious as many of the old line communist generals and members of his own family would like to seize power.  What better way to take down the Kim regime than to assassinate the President of the US on North Korean soil!  Given the openness of this meeting, there was literally no way to prevent this from happening!  In the end, The President and Chairman Kim met for an hour and agreed to resume disarmament negotiations.  A big prize for merely having the guts to walk across a 16″ wide curb that separates South and North Korea!  Will disarmament come about?  Who knows.  There are a lot of variables at play and Kim is not totally secure in his role as Chairman. 

But, it proves that Trump understands that whether you are negotiating for a high rise in NYC or negotiating to disarm a nuclear nation, TRUST has to be built before any deal will be reached.  I have written in the past that Trump’s short term goal is to convince Chairman Kim that he can trust President Trump and that the US will live up to any security agreement that is made to ensure Kim’s long term survival!  Kim is the third generation that has stood against the US.  He and his ancestors have convinced the North Korean people that the US is an existential threat to their survival.  Now, Trump has to convince Kim that this is not true, then Kim has to convince his inner circles, his military and his people that a good relationship with the US would be good for North Korea.  Remember, Kim was educated in Switzerland and knows how the other half lives.  North Korean GDP is only $18 Billion a year.  Amazon’s annual sales in 2018 was $233 Billion and its EBITA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization was $25.5B, $7.5 billion higher that the total GDP of North Korea!

The G-20 Itself

Turkey:

President Trump very simply laid out for the American People a very difficult situation that has arisen between the US, Turkey and Russia.  Remember that Turkey is a member of NATO, an organization that was founded to guard against advances by the old Soviet Union, and now Russia.  Turkey was an ally of the US against ISIS and agreed not to attack the Kurds in Iraq following the defeat of ISIS.  The Kurds and Turkey have been long-time enemies and much of the original Kurdistan was absorbed into Turkey to the chagrin of the Kurds.  In short, Turkey considers the Kurds terrorists and the Kurds consider Turkey confiscatory scum!  

The President succinctly laid out that during the Obama administration, Turkey’s President Erdogan asked that he be allowed to purchase the US Patriot missile Defence system.  Turkey wanted this defensive system to protect itself from any incoming missile attack.  But, President Obama refused the sale as he did not want to alienate President Putin of Russia In fact, President Obama stopped Patriot system installations in Poland and other nations as well.  Erdogan also wanted to purchase 100 of the new stealth F-35 fighter planes to upgrade his air defenses and to meet his NATO commitment to spend 2% of their GDP on defense.

During the F-35 negotiations, Erdogan went to Russia to see if he could purchase the Russian counterpart to our Patriot system, the Russian S-400.   Erdogan and the Russians made the deal and Turkey paid Russia for the S-400 system.  Why not?  The US had refused to sell its system to Turkey!  The Obama administration was furious and eventually offered to give Turkey the Patriot System.  It was too late, Turkey had already paid for the S-400 system and Russia was in the process of manufacturing it and installing it.  

So, fast forward to present day and President Trump at the G-20.  President Trump is livid that the US first denied the sale of the Patriot System to Turkey; then sold 100 F-35s to Turkey; then said Turkey could not have the F-35s, since Turkey bought the Russian S-400 Missile Defense Systems, AFTER THE US REFUSED TO SELL THE PATRIOT SYSTEM TO THEM!  Aren’t you glad that Obama was so smart and not in the back pocket of President Putin!  

Why is this a problem?  The F-35 is the latest US stealth aircraft that obviously incorporates highly sensitive electronics and advances weapons systems, including anti-missile defense capabilities from systems such as the Russian S-400!  Wouldn’t the Russians love to get their hands on the F-35 technology during the installation of the S-400 system so they can program F-35 interception capabilities into not only the S-400 system, but in all offensive and defensive systems they deploy!  

The US had officially suspended any further shipments of the F-35s to Turkey.  To date, only two planes have been delivered to the Turks but they remain in the US at training facilities.  Pentagon spokesman Charles E. Summers Jr. recently stated:

“The United States has been clear that Turkey’s acquisition of the S-400 is unacceptable.” Our important dialogue on this matter will continue, however, until they forgo delivery of the S-400, the United States has suspended deliveries and activities associated with the stand-up of Turkey’s F-35 operational capability,”

Presidents Trump and Erdogan met at the G-20 at length to discuss and try to resolve this situation that should never have been allowed to transpire in the first place.  The lack of commitment to NATO, and the sucking up to Russia by the Obama Administration created this fiasco.  As of this writing, it is unclear how Trump will resolve this,  If I were a betting man, I would bet that Trump will try to offset any loses by Turkey as a result of their purchase of the S-400 systems.  Russia will scream bloody murder but in the end we, the tax payers, will have to pay for Obama’s incompetence.  It is not acceptable to have our F-35 technologies exposed to Russia and to Russian defense technology.

China:

The North Korean Meeting between Trump and Kim all but overshadowed the meeting between President Trump and President Xi of China.  This meeting was critical to restart talks between the two nations regarding tariffs and trade relations.  The Chinese economy is in decline and further US sanctions could further exacerbate this decline.  In order to mitigate the US tariffs so far, China has had to devalue their currency and give their industries who have been the target of the tariffs deep subsidies so they could continue to produce their products.  In the US, inflation has been at historical lows indicating that China is absorbing most of the cost of the US tariffs.  

The biggest takeaway from the Trump/Xi meeting was that trade talks would resume.  Trump agreed not to increase tariffs or impose new tariffs on about $300 billion dollars in US imports from China.  The US also is allowing our tech companies to sell component parts to the Chinese tech giant Huawei.  TRUMP DID NOT LIFT THE EMBARGO AGAINST HUAWEI, as some are reporting.  Huawei cannot sell its products in the US and the administration is continuing to pressure our allies to follow suit.

President Trump reiterated that he is in now hurry to get a deal with China realizing that China is hoping that Trump will lose his bid for re-election and that China will have an easier path with an incoming Democrat!  So, a comprehensive trade deal with China may not happen until after Trump’s re-election.  If China thinks Trump is tough now, just wait until he is re-elected!  This is not a good bet for China to make.

Other Advances:

Trump also met with many other leaders including those from France, Germany, Great Britain, Brazil, India, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, and Russia. 

His meetings with France and Germany were to discuss further trade talks between the EU and the US, Brexit, the Trump Middle-East Peace Plan, and Iran.  Trump will tackle the EU trade talks following the passage of USMCA and possibly the conclusion of trade agreement with Japan.  They also discussed the ongoing devaluation of the EU currency that is forcing the dollar higher making it more difficult to sell into the EU.  Iran was particularly critical given the Iranian aggression and the potential for oil supplies being cut off to EU countries from the Gulf.  President Trump also sought to stop these countries from interfering or circumventing with his sanctions against Iran.  Iran is at a tipping point and any propping up by the EU now would only prolong any meaningful dialog with Iran relative to their nuclear weapon program.

Trump’s meeting with Teresa May of Great Britain was a continued reassurance that the US is ready and willing to offset any trade loses that Britain may suffer when exiting the EU, either hard or soft.  The Iranian and Middle-East Peace Plan were also front and center.  May is basically a Lame Duck Prime Minister as recent elections have set up the formation of a new government.

The other main event featured a meeting between President Trump and President Putin of Russia.

While both sides have been relatively quiet about the meetings,  included in their discussions were the situations in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, and Ukraine.  Putin has indicated that he is withdrawing his support for Maduro in Venezuela and is cooling to any real future involvement with Iran in Syria.  The Ukraine/Crimea situation is sticky and any real solution to the Ukraine/Crimea crisis will not happen soon.  Once Obama allowed Russia to invade Ukraine and Crimea and annex portions of these lands, only military intervention by the US would probably change the status on the ground.  Trump does not see this as his highest priority, nor as a winnable, problem.  Trump did agree to visit Russia on the 75th anniversary of V-Day to celebrate the defeat of Nazism with our then ally, Russia.

I will cover some of the other meetings as results from those meetings unfold and current events add to their story.  Let it suffice to say that President Trump is dominating the world stage and drawing lines in the sands of many topics with other world leaders.  Our media’s and the left’s constant domestic attacks on him do not help but he is undeterred in his seeking of world peace, and rebalancing US trade to be reciprocal and free.
