Washington is Rotten to the Core! Shut it Down December 8, 2017!

This article was originally published in May 2017. It has been rewritten for the looming December 8, 2017 budget deadline.

Congress, and consequently the entire Federal Government, has been increasingly dysfunctional for decades. Unfortunately eight years of the Obama Administration took the level of dysfunction to a “point of no return”. Democrats and RINO Republicans (Republican in name only) are equally at fault.

It is obvious that the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) are already painting a bright target on the chest and back of every Republican that is up for re-election in the mid-term elections in 2018.  What the President and Republicans do, or do not do between now and November 2018, will not change the Democrat’s and MSM’S plans for the Democrats to take over every branch of Government in November 2018 and 2020, and then make America part of the “One World Order”.  However what the President and actual Conservative Republicans do will determine who is elected in November 2018 and 2020.I am convinced that “Middle America” has become more attuned to what is happening in Washington, so they will not place all the blame for a government shutdown on December 8, 2017 on all Republicans!

I have written a number of articles where I said that the Democrats get up every morning with a daily message waiting for them with the specific Democrat Party talking points and marching orders for the day, and the Democrats all stick to those talking points and marching orders no matter what happens. The opposite is true for the Republicans. Some Republicans are actually trying to listen to their constituents and the rest (RINOs) are also playing the “Washington Game”, which is:

  • How do I stay in office?
  • How do I get more rich and powerful while I am here?

Elected members of Congress alone are not the entire “Washington problem”. Many people appointed to positions of power are also part of the “Washington problem”. Federal Judges who “legislate from the bench” and people like Jim Comey and Robert Mueller who use their position, or prior position, to assure that they continue to be an integral part of what they see as the “Washington Elite”.

It is inarguable that Congress does not remotely resemble what our Founding Fathers planned for it to be. The Founding Fathers believed that elected officials should serve America out of a sense of patriotism. They should go to Washington, do their job and then go back home to their family and personal businesses. THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL CAREER POLITICIANS!  ESPECIALLY NOT POLITICIANS THAT PROMOTE DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR OR VIOLENCE!

Why did I say in the title of this article, “SHUT IT DOWN December 8, 2017”?  Because I am now convinced that shutting the Federal Government down is the only way to begin to fix it (other than an actual revolution).

There are two points regarding a Federal Government shut down that are important to know:

  1. Critical services continue to function during a shut down. Anyone who says things like old people will not get their social security checks if we shut the government down is an absolute liar!
  2. Government employees are still paid when they are not working due to a shut down! This should not happen!

President Trump, please do not agree to anything Congress proposes that does not meet the mandate you were sent to Washington to do. Shut the Federal Government down December 8, 2017 and keep it shut down as long as necessary to force needed changes (no more Federal budget “continuing resolutions”). Use your “phone and pen” to conduct Washington’s business until you are convinced that Congress may be willing to actually do what it is supposed to do. Direct your Cabinet Secretaries to cut their departments like you proposed for them to do, not what Congress wants. Stop trying to “fix” Obamacare. Let it collapse and then replace it. INSIST on a Constitutional Amendment establishing TERM LIMITS for all members of the U.S. Congress and Senate! And please keep tweeting regardless of who suggest that you stop. You are communicating directly with Americans and not allowing the corrupt, deranged Main Stream Media to “filter” what you say! I am absolutely convinced that there are enough people in America now who have “had enough of the Washington problem” and will fully support you ANY WAY THAT IS NEEDED to fix the “Washington problem”.

The Obamaites are Still Doing Everything They Can to Destroy the Trump Presidency!

Urban Dictionary: Obamaite  – A blind follower of the prophet Obama. A person who pays no attention to his socialist policies or his radical associations with people like Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and will refute any negative claim about him, even if it is fact. He will say that you are smearing Obama, and that Obama never plays those political games.

Based on my observations the “Obamaites” have little to no concern that what they are doing is unethical, criminal, or even treasonous

“Obamaites” come from many segments of our population. Two things make them “Obamaites”:

  • An obsession with all things Obama.
  • An extreme hatred for any political belief that opposes Obama’s political views.

“Obamaites” usually fit into one of the following categories:

  • They are still working in various Federal Government jobs. These are Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Obama “holdovers” that have not been fired yet. Many of them are in positions of authority. These “Obamaites” are especially unconcerned that what they are doing is unethical, criminal or even treasonous. The number of “Obamaites” still working in Federal Government positions is slowly being reduced. It is being reduced slowly because of the depth and size of the “Washington Cesspool”.
  • Former Clinton and Obama Administration officials that have become public figures like Brennen and Clapper who are spending as much time in front of TV cameras as they can attacking everything Trump. Note: Brennen and Clapper were typical Obama Administration staffers. They lied to Congress under oath about their Department’s activities on more than one occasion.
  • Members of organized groups like “Antifa” and “BLM” with an expressed desire to destroy America and make it part of the “one world order”, and a willingness to accomplish this by any means necessary.
  • Elected officials whose only interest is self-aggrandizement regardless of the effect of their actions on America.
  • “Sheeple” – People who blindly follow the political entity that promises them the most freebies from the government.

Those of us that believe in the Constitution and America must do three things to assure that the “Obamaites” do not win.

  • Turn off and stand against the Main Stream Media.
  • Stay active politically to assure that there is a big turnover in elected officials in the November 2018 elections.
  • Give the Trump Administration the time it needs to drain the “Washington Cesspool”.

We can defeat the “Obamaites” if we preserver!


President Trump is Correct About Other Countries, Especially China Taking Advantage of America Economically!

As usual President Trump was right about how badly America is being taken advantage of by other countries, and consequently disrespected. Since he began to campaign for the office of the President of the United States of America ,I have been constantly and pleasantly surprised at how much he really knows about what is happening in America and around the world.

During his recent international trip he spoke about how many other countries are taking advantage of America through trade deals that were bad for America. He even said that he did not blame them for doing a better job of negotiating trade deals than our State Department. Many of these countries also take economic advantage of America due to weak, or practically non- existent enforcement of Federal or state laws and regulations.  These problems were also aggravated by a Congress that totally failed to do its job and various Presidents’ inept administrations over regulating American industries and products while ignoring foreign products that were being dumped in the American marketplace. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and the EPA are prime examples of this.

Here are a few examples of bad trade deals and inadequate enforcement of Federal or state regulations that allowed other countries to openly take economic advantage of America:

Japan was one of the first countries to take economic advantage of America. They made really cheap products and “dumped them” into the American market place. At first this seemed like a good thing because Americans were getting things they wanted at low prices. But then people stared to realize that jobs were leaving America because of this overseas production. At one point the Japanese even developed their own line of earth moving equipment (bull dozers) and began to sell them here in America under the brand name “Komatsu”. The parts were actually inter-changeable with similar Caterpillar equipment!  After their initial steps into the America marketplace the Japanese did do one thing right. They began to invest in America and build their products here. However, that was only because their country is so small and lacking in resources that they had no other choice!

China is probably the country that has taken the most advantage of America economically. They took cheap copying of American products and then dumping them in the American market place to a much higher level than any other country had done before and continue to do it to this day. All you have to do to confirm this is look at the cheap Chinese illegal ATV and off road utility vehicles sitting in auto parts stores, pawn shops and anywhere else they can set up a “dealer”. I use the term dealer very loosely here because the “dealerships” are not legitimate nor or the products. These industries and products are supposed to be heavily regulated by Federal and state agencies but the Chinese product “dealerships” are blatantly operating without meeting basic, legitimate industry requirements. This has forced many legitimate dealerships to close and thousands of Americans to lose their jobs. It has also put many Americans, including children at increased risk of injury or death when they sell these machines to uninformed customers.

Weak anti-American deals and lack of enforcement of Federal and state regulations did not stop with trade deals. Everything the last Administration and several before him did was bad for America. The Bowe Berghdal deal, Federal Judges legislating from the bench, the Paris Climate Accord, and the Iran deal were all an embarrassment to America.

At this time there are 193 countries in the world. We give some sort of aid, financial or military to most of them. This included North Korea. For many years we were giving them large sums of money to “feed their starving people” in exchange for stopping their nuclear arms program. Instead of using the aid to feed their starving people they used it to expand their nuclear program and standing army.

President Trump could not be more RIGHT when he says, “PUT AMERICA FIRST”!




The Democrats are Eating Their Own!

For decades, especially beginning with the first Clinton Presidency, the Democratic Party has been very unified and disciplined regarding its public policy positions and messaging. This unity and discipline continued through most of the Bush 43 presidencies and was reinforced with the election of Obama to his first term in the White House. As I watched politics over the last few decades it seemed obvious to me that the only way the party could be this unified and disciplined was if the DNC was providing daily talking points and public policy statement updates with very specific language to all party members. This has become more obvious recently as more Democrats have “stumbled badly” as they try to blindly stick to the current talking points about the DNC, Hillary and her campaign.

As more information about the DNC becomes public it is inarguable that the DNC is, and has been for several years, in a state of TOTAL DISARRAY. In 2014 it was practically bankrupt with $24 million in debt left over from the Obama 2012 reelection campaign and was being run like a third world dictatorship by Debbie Wasserman Shultz and then the Hillary Clinton campaign. The old debt was especially surprising to me when you consider that Obama, who raised billions during his campaigns with no regard for various Federal regulations, and spent tremendous amounts of money funding various tax exempt organizations, left the DNC practically bankrupt and totally mismanaged! This is the guy who got a $60 million advance for a book he has not even started writing yet!

There is so much information coming out now about illegal and unethical activities by Clinton, her campaign and DNC officers and staff that Democrats are really having trouble following the standard Democrat play book when asked about any of the new revelations. According to the Democratic play book they are supposed to deny, deny, deny, deflect and then attack Trump and Republicans. Unfortunately this response is simply not working well for them now. This is becoming an increasing problem for the Democrats even with the MSM openly colluding with them.  Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN actually met with senior staff to devise a plan to discredit Donna Brazile’s allegations of problems at the DNC and in the Democratic Party. Brazile is loudly fighting back publicly with the release of her new “tell all” book and a very busy news and talk show schedule, including several appearances on FOX NEWS!

Here are just a few of the Obama and Clinton scandals with new information that is becoming public daily, and sometimes hourly:

  • Democrats rigging the primary.
  • Democrats colluding with the Russians .Yes,, it was actually the Democrats who colluded, but no one can remember who authorized the millions of dollars in payments for what they call “innocent opposition research!”,
  • The Clintons “Uranium One” deal.
  • Even more seriously damaging information about Clinton, and her staff’s, Federal e-mail crimes (treason), and the Obama Administration’s corrupt handling of “emailgate”.

Yes, the Democrats are “eating their own” with Donna Brazile leading the way!

Where are the Democrats and MSM When the Wheels Are Coming off of the Clinton Train?

The only people who actually “colluded” to interfere with the 2016 election were the Clintons, the DNC and the Obama Administration. The mounting evidence is undeniable, yet when asked about it they deny, deny, deny, redirect, and then attack Republicans and scream about alleged Trump Russia collusion

  • Note: A Republican WAS NOT the first person to hire Fusion GPS for opposition research on Donald Trump. It was “The Washington Free Beacon”, an on line “news organization”.
  • The Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS $5.6 million, failed to report the expenditure as required by Federal Election Law and then Hillary, John Podesta and everyone else in the campaign that was asked about the payment denied knowing about it!
  • The DNC payed Fusion GPS $3.6 million, failed to report it as required by Federal Election Law, and then everyone at the DNC that was asked about it denied knowing about it, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
  • Obama’s non-profit “Organizing for Action” which was formed out of one of Obama’s campaign organizations, “Organizing for America”, payed Fusion GPS $1.2 million.

While Comey was Director of the FBI, the FBI tried to buy opposition research on Trump from Fusion GPS.

While Obama was still in office his administration (the Department of Injustice and FBI) tried to obtain a FISA Court order to wiretap a server in the Trump Tower. They were denied twice but went back a third time and used information the Obama Administration got by illegally “unmasking” Trump campaign and transition team staff to convince a third FISA Court Judge to approve the warrant. Trump Tower was illegally “wiretapped” by the Obama Administration and a massive amount of Trump information was illegally released to various Government agencies and the Main Stream Media.

The sale of 20% of America’s uranium stock to Russia in 2009 was approved by Hillary, Eric Holder and other people in the Obama Administration, and Obama was briefed on the sale. The details of the sale were buried by the Obama administration. Greg Jarret, a FOX NEWS legal analyst has been on Hannity several nights recently detailing the long list of Federal Laws that were violated by the Clintons, and others, involved in this deal.

Here are just a few of the questionable activities that were part of this deal:

  • The Clinton Foundation got $145 million in questionable contributions from sources connected to the uranium sale, which it did not properly report.
  • Bill Clinton got paid $500,000 for a speech in Russia and tried to arrange a personal meeting with Putin and other Russian Officials through Hillary’s State Department.
  • The Uranium is ILLEGALLY being shipped out of America through Canada.
  • Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time and Rosenstein was a U.S. Attorney. Mueller is close friends with Comey and Rosenstein is now the assistant Attorney General that appointed Muller as the Special Prosecutor that is investigating the alleged Trump Russia election collusion. Where were they during the Uranium deal?

The Podesta Group was formed years ago by John and Tony Podesta. It was a high end Washington lobbying firm that represented a lot of international clients. They were heavily involved with the activities that Manafort and his assistant have just been charged with crimes for doing, all the way back to 2014. John removed himself from the group when he became Hillary’s Campaign Chairman. Tony removed himself from the group on October 30 and turned it over to his senior staff, who announced that they will be relaunching the company with a new identity immediately.

California Congressman Adam Schiff stooped to new lows, even for him on October 27. He held an impromptu press conference where he loudly announced that he was “opening an investigation into President Trump for Abuse of Power because he used the office of the President to have a former political rival investigated by the Federal Government”. He even said that,” this is unacceptable in American politics”.  He was referring to the new Congressional and possible DOJ and FBI, investigations into the Uranium deal and Fusion GPS activities and the reopening of Emailgate. What about all the Abuse of Power activity committed by practically everybody in the Obama Administration, including Obama?  Remember when Obama was re-elected and he publicly announced that “now we will reward our friends and punish our enemies”!

There is ample evidence to confirm everything I have written here. Where are the Democrats and the MSM on any of this news?
