The Left Cannot Believe That it Lost the Election and Continues to lose!

In several of my past articles I noted that the Democrats get up every morning with a text message, voice mail or electronic memo telling them what the party’s talking points are for the day. All you have to do to recognize this is watch and listen anytime a Democrat steps up to a microphone. The Democratic Party leadership also keeps a tight rein on its member to assure that they stay “on” these talking points. Note to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Tom Perez and Keith Ellison: This is NOT working well for your party now, but please keep doing it!

The Democratic Party’s obsession with “our way or else” has been happening for a long time, but now it has reached a point where the party’s leadership has completely lost touch with what is actually happening in America. It appears that the party’s leadership also still believes that anyone who helps carry out the party’s agenda is immune to any negative consequences, regardless of what they do.

What is happening in America now:

  • After many months of investigations by Congressional committees and the Special Council, and a waste of millions of dollars of taxpayer money, there has not been a single thread of evidence produced confirming any Trump Russian collusion, or any attempts to interfere in the November 2018 election. The “Russia, Russia, Russia Collision” story is not only dying, it is focusing unwanted attention on the Democrats (who did actually collude with Russia).
  • The “Russia, Russia, Russia Collision” story has been replaced with the Democrats loudly claiming that Trump “Obstructed” justice when he fired Comey in an attempt to cover up the “Russia Collusion”. The “Obstruction of Justice” claim includes a reference to it being the basis for impeaching Trump.
  • The Main Stream Media continues to help the “Washington Cesspool” attack everything Trump, including fabricating “news” that is very detrimental to the Trump Presidency and America. One recent “fake news” report caused a short lived stock market crash, forced CNN to issue a public retraction of the report and the “reporter” who wrote the “fake news” story was suspended.
  • Information is becoming public that Mueller and various high ranking people in the DOJ and FBI were involved in Hillary’s “e-mail gate” cover up. Hillary and her staff were basically given a free pass while General Flynn and several other people are being prosecuted for allegedly lying to the FBI (not colluding with Russia).
  • Undeniable proof is being made public about various ranking DOJ and FBI staff working to protect Hillary and defeat Trump, and now they are working to impeach President Trump. The information that was made public about their unethical, and in some cases criminal activities is so “damning” that some of the Clinton/Obama “holdovers” had to be “reassigned” to try and cover up their activities.
  • Four Clinton/Obama “holdovers” have been charged with and convicted of crimes for illegally “unmasking” Trump campaign staff, transition staff, or staff members after he was sworn in. Information obtained in the illegal “unmasking” was then illegally leaked to the MSM. This is just the cases that have been publicly acknowledged. I am sure there are a lot more that are still sealed.
  • There are currently 27 open active investigations about Clinton/Obama “holdovers” illegally “unmasking” Trump campaign staff, transition staff and staff members after he was sworn in, and then illegally leaking information obtained during the illegal “unmasking” to the MSM. This is just the number of cases that has been publicly acknowledged. I am sure there are a lot more that have not been publicly acknowledged yet.
  • Obama and his supporters continue to constantly and publicly blast President Trump and his supporters. In a recent speech at an international climate change forum Obama apologized for America not being part of the forum, said that absence was “temporary” and that it was due to America “being leaderless right now”! And we thought that Jimmy Carter was a mean spirited, small, little man after he left the White House!

This is just a small sample of what the “Washington Cesspool” is doing in its continuing efforts to destroy America and make it part of a “One World Order”.

The Left is really going to “freak out” after the November 2018 and 2020 elections!  Wake up “Washington Cesspool”.  Middle America is wide awake and angry.

 

 

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”!

 

 

 

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?

 

 

 

 

The Democrat’s, RINO Republican’s, and MSM’s Obsession with the Alleged Trump Russia, Collusion, is “Backfiring” Loudly Against Them!

After almost two years of intense scrutiny not a single bit of evidence has been found that proves there was any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign regarding our 2016 Presidential election. In fact the opposite is true!  More evidence is being uncovered that it was the Democrats and “Never Trumpers” who “meddled” in the election with the enthusiastic support of the Main Stream Media. There is also more evidence emerging that indicates that the Clintons openly engaged in criminal activity (probably actually treason) when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, in exchange for huge amounts of illegal money from Russians! Her actions were approved by Eric Holder and the Obama White House and even “buried” to keep the American people from knowing about it.

Here are a few examples of the “Backfiring”:

  • It was recently revealed that Samantha Powers, Obama’s U.N. Ambassador, requested the “unmasking” of an extraordinary number of Trump campaign and transition staff members. During an extended period of time she averaged more than one request per day! This is not just unethical it is ILLEGAL! When questioned about it recently before a Congressional committee she denied making that many request and at one point in her testimony she even suggested someone else must have done a lot of those request using her name. She is the wife of Ezekiel Emanuel, who is the brother of Rahm Emanuel. Ezekiel was a co-author of Obamacare. He is a strong advocate of “Single Payer” (Government healthcare) with “death panels”.
  • Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security Advisor also requested the “unmasking” of an unprecedented number of Trump campaign and transition staff members. When originally asked about this on camera she loudly denied it, which proved to be an outright lie. She is scheduled to testify about this before Congress in the near future. She was also the “public face” of the Obama and Clinton Benghazi cover up, which ultimately prevented Obama from appointing her to the U.N. Ambassador position that went to Samantha Powers.  .
  • A “consulting firm”, Fusion GPS, whose primary partner is a former British MI6 agent, was hired to build a file that would prove that president Trump has deep Russia connections and colluded with the Russians to get elected President. To date Fusion GPS has not produced any actual evidence of President Trump, his campaign or transition staff colluding with the Russians. As of last week Fusion GPS was refusing to testify before Congressional committees or provide any information regarding who funded their activities!
  • The FBI suddenly found that documents about the infamous Clinton and Lynch tarmac meeting do actually exist and has agreed to turn them over to Judicial Watch in response to a FOIA request.
  • The Podesta Group, an international consulting company with extensive ties to Russian companies dating back several years, is now part of Special Prosecutor Muller’s “Russia Meddling” investigation. Initial indications are that the Podesta Group was not properly registered with the Federal Government, which was required for them to legally represent foreign entities in the U.S. John Podesta, Hillary’s Presidential campaign chairman was an active partner in the Podesta Group until he became Hillary’s campaign Chairman. At that time he “removed himself” from his “position”: with the organization.
  • The Clinton Uranium deal while she was Secretary of State is also the focus of new Congressional investigation. I am sure the investigation will become, if it is not already, a significant part of Special Prosecutor Muller’s “Russia Meddling” investigation. There has been a lot written about this over the last few months, including in several of the articles I have published. Hillary has loudly denied it happened including in an on camera interview on October. However the evidence is over whelming that it happened in exchange for huge sums of money being directed to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton from Russian companies with direct connections to the Russian government. New information ties Eric Holder into the deal and now Loretta Lynch who helped silence a whistle blower with first-hand knowledge of the deal. And now even the ultraliberal New York Times is reporting that the deal happened and the uranium is illegally leaving the U.S. It has also come to light that Muller, who was the Director of the FBI at the time, had an open investigation into the deal that was ultimately buried by the Obama Administration. I am confident that more of the Main Stream Media will be treating this as “front page” news soon!

 

As noted earlier, after almost two years no one has been able to produce any credible evidence against the Trump campaign or transition staff indicating any collusion with Russia involving the Presidential election. However the evidence indicating Democratic Russia connections is starting to PILE UP!

President Trump is Decisively Dealing With America’s Problems!

Pesident Trump is taking bold and LEGAL action to solve many of America’s long running problems in spite of a worthless Congress. Trump’s actions are forcing our self-centered and “do nothing” Congress to take legal action to deal with these things like they were supposed to do originally. In addition to Congress President Trump is also working against a totally dishonest Main Stream Media that is obsessed with helping destroy the Trump Presidency.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.  The recension gives Congress six months to solve the problem legally. With the clear understanding that Congress is going to have to negotiate with him or he will veto whatever they send to his desk.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally. Congress still has a short window to repeal and replace Obamacare with something that could actually work for the American people.

He signed an Executive Order directing the insurance regulatory agencies to remove any regulations that prevented people or groups from buying insurance across state lines. The order also directed the regulatory agencies to allow individuals to form groups, or join existing groups so they could buy insurance at lower group rates and to allow individuals to buy lower priced insurance plans that did not require people to buy coverage they did not need, like single males being required to buy coverage that had maternity benefits.

He refused to re-certify the ridiculous Iran Nuclear Deal. This effectively throws it back into Congress’ lap to try and make it better for America and the rest of the free world.

He and his Administration have dealt quickly and decisively with multiple disastrous hurricanes, multiple disastrous California wild fires and the worse mass murder in modern U.S. history.

He has met, and positively influenced, more world leaders in his first few months in office than Obama did in his eight years in office. Many world leaders are beginning to respect America again, and in many cases actually work with us to solve some of the world’s problems. This is happening in spite of the Democrat’s and RINO Republican’s rants to the contrary, the Main Stream Media’s obsession with dishonest reporting and fake news, and Obama “holdover’s” who are continuing their efforts to sabotage the Trump Presidency.

Nine months after President Trump was sworn in the ISIS capital of Raqqa was taken by a U.S. backed coalition of fighting forces!  It is amazing what is being accomplished with a change in the Commander in Chief, new battle tested military Commanders with the authority to make the decisions necessary to accomplish their objectives, and a change in the “Rules of Engagement”!

President Trump is accomplishing all this and more in spite of the fact that many of his chosen appointees, to various top positions in his administration, are being deliberately delayed by the Senate. This is another way that President Trump has exhibited his Senior Executive and Manager skills. He simply appointed qualified people to “acting positions” and watched the results to assure that they are doing the jobs well.

This is only a sample of what an amazing job President Trump is doing in spite of an unbelievable number of road blocks being constantly thrown out in front of him by the America hating “Never Trumpers”. This is a classic example of the difference between a highly qualified, skilled and successful MANAGER (President Trump) compared to an incompetent loser who constantly surrounds himself with incompetent sycophants and fails at everything (Obama). I wrote a detailed article about this in April and posted it here:  http://www.onlymakessense.com/business-management-101-trump-versus-obama-what-is-the-difference-between-successful-business-managers-and-incompetent-looser-managers/

 

 

The Washington Cesspool is Now Totally Dysfunctional and Combative!

How I defined the “Washington Cesspool”:

The “Washington Cesspool” is huge! It includes the Democrats, RINO Republicans, Main Stream Media, self-appointed members of the “Washington Elite”, most of the Washington career bureaucrats, and many federal employees. In fact the “Cesspool” has become so big it literally drowns out any one outside the cesspool who attempts to “call out” any of its members for anything they do or question anything any of its members says.

Tom Fitton, President of “Judicial Watch” calls it the “Deep State” and describes it as “legions of political appointees, career civil servants, and powerful private contractors who run the government no matter who is in the Oval Office. No matter which political party controls Congress. And, no matter what is the will of the American people. No matter who is in power they exert control. Oftentimes the liberal media effectively operates as the propaganda arm for the “Deep State”.

Regardless of what you call it, the “Swamp”, “Washington Cesspool”, or “Deep State” it is obvious that its inhabitants are becoming more obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency by any means necessary!

Here are just a few recent examples:

  • Nancy Pelosi publicly threatened to shut the Federal government down if President Trump continues to insist that a border wall be part of immigration reform. Senator Schumer immediately agreed with her.
  • During a speech about U.S. foreign policy at a New York think tank “Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden praised members of the audience as being leaders of U.S. foreign policy in the past, while bashing the Trump Presidency’s foreign policy decisions and actions, and even called the Trump foreign policy
  • Practically all of Obama’s political appointees were “rubber stamped” immediately by the Democrats and RINO Republicans in the senate. But after nine months in office President Trump still has many unfilled positions, even with a Republican majority in the senate!
  • Republican Senator Bob Corker made very demeaning public statements about President Trump.
  • Congress is spending millions of dollars and thousands of hours keeping the alleged Russian Trump campaign collusion investigation going, with the Main Stream Media’s eager assistance. Democrats and RINO Republicans continue to hold hearings and press conferences about this even though there has not been any actual evidence of Russian meddling in the election uncovered. This continues to happen while they have much more pressing issues like tax reform, the Federal budget, immigration reform, and Obamacare that really need to be worked on.
  • Congressman Al Green is planning to introduce legislation, with co-sponsors, to impeach President Trump.
  • Clinton and Obama “holdovers” in every government agency continue to violate laws, including acts of treason, on a daily basis in an organized effort to sabotage the Trump Presidency. Tom Fitton calls these people the “Obama Shadow Government”. Many of these people were actively involved in ILLEGALLY spying on the Trump Campaign and illegally releasing selected bits of information. INITIALLY THIS WAS A CAREFULLY COORDINATED EFFORT TO TRY AND INFLUENCE THE ELECTION. After the election they continued to spy on the Trump Transition Team and then the new Trump Presidency and illegally release bits of information in an ongoing effort to destroy the Trump Presidency.

As noted these are just a few examples of how far the “Never Trumpers” are willing to go to destroy the Trump Presidency. These people must be “called out” as the traitors that they are, and where ever possible replaced with patriotic Americans!

The “Cesspool” has been growing steadily for decades so draining it is going to be a long slow process. However, I am confident that President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and the President’s Cabinet Secretaries will steadily chip away at it over time.

 

 

A Total Disrespect for Authority and Open Hatred for America. How Did We Get to Such a Dark Place in America?

The Main Stream Media continues to “report” open displays of hatred for everything American. The most recent and visible examples of this were the over-paid professional athletes’ deliberate and disgusting disrespect for our flag and national anthem. One of the worst examples of this was the Baltimore Ravens refusing to stand up while our national anthem was playing before a game in England , and then they stood up to honor the playing of England’s national anthem, “God Save the Queen’!  This was a glaring example of how far the “America haters” are willing, and eager to go to show their hatred for everything American.

Based on my own life experiences I am really having a problem understanding how so many people in America openly hate America. From my earliest memories as a child I was taught that there were certain basic rules that I was expected to live by throughout my life. These basic rules were not complicated. They were:

  1. Respect the American flag and everything it stands for.
  2. Respect authority.

In addition to these two basic rules I was also taught that I was, “Blessed to be born in America”! Throughout my childhood and teen years I was reminded of this “blessing” on a periodic basis. The people that taught me this insisted that I understand that “being born in America” meant that I had unlimited opportunity to lead a happy and successful life and could overcome almost any obstacles that life placed in my path, if I really wanted to do that. Most over-paid professional athletics are perfect examples of being “blessed to be born in America”, but some of them are leading the anti-American protest?

Unfortunately there are a lot of people in America now who do not believe in the basic rules noted above, and do not believe that it is a “blessing to be born in America”. However, they do have a strong belief that they are somehow “entitled” to do as they please and be given anything they want with no negative consequences?

How did we did get to this “dark place in America” where so many people in America are willing, and in some cases eager to publicly display open hatred for everything American? It did not happen overnight. It has been building up for decades, became more visible during Obama’s eight years in office and then literally exploded onto the “national stage” during the last few months as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” reached epidemic proportions.

As I watched the “America haters” publicly attack everything American and flaunt it, it occurred to me that America is being viciously attacked from two directions. The primary attack is from the hard Left people who are obsessed with destroying America and making America become part of their “One World Order”. The second attack is coming from people in America who have become convinced that they are “entitled” and that “respect for authority” is an old and outdated principle that no longer has a place in America. The people in this second group are so obsessed with their belief that they are “entitled”, they are easily manipulated by the hard Left, ”new world order” America haters. That is why they are referred to by some people as “useful idiots”.

When Patriotic Americans stood up in November 2016 and elected Donald Trump as President of the United States of America the America haters and all the people in the “Washington Swamp” were literally shocked. They did not believe that anyone but their anointed one, Hillary could be elected. Clearly the “shock” has worn off now and the America haters have come together and are obsessed with one goal, destroy the Trump Presidency by ”any means necessary”. They are well aware that if the Trump Presidency survives their dreams of a “One world order” are finished or at least delayed indefinitely. Those of us who want America to survive must be vigilant and stand up for America as aggressively as the America haters are working to tear it down.

The America haters have good reason to be panicking. President Trump will never quit! He will drain the “Washington Cesspool” and “make America great again” if enough of us stand with him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Congress so Broken That It Cannot Be Fixed?

All indications are that the answer to that question is YES, but we are about to find out for sure.

Here are just a few of the things Congress must get done, many of them this month:

  • Hurricane Harvey relief
  • Probably hurricane Irma relief
  • Re-approve the FAA
  • Raise the federal debt ceiling
  • Renew CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program)
  • Approve a Federal budget.
  • Solve the DACA issue/Immigration Reform.
  • Fix or replace Obamacare
  • Pass comprehensive tax reform
  • Pass an infrastructure bill
  • Fix the budget cuts forced on the military, homeland security, and the VA by the 2011 Budget Control Bill (Sequestration)

When the Democrats held the majority position in both Houses of Congress and had Obama in the White House for two years, all they accomplished was to pass a badly flawed healthcare bill. In fact Obamacare was so flawed that Obama had to illegally modify it repeatedly with executive orders. When the Democrats lost the majority position in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 Harry Reid used his leadership position in the Senate to block practically every bill the House passed for the next four years. When the Republicans got a Senate majority position in 2014 Obama vetoed any bills that got to his desk that he or the Democrats did not like, which was just about all bills passed by the Republican controlled Congress. While Harry Reid blocked and Obama vetoed, Obama continued to “rule” America by executive order.

From 2010 through 2016 the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) constantly blamed a totally dysfunctional Federal Government on “Republican obstruction” when most Republicans were just refusing to support Congressional, Federal agency, and White House actions that they truly believed were not good for America. Now that the Republicans hold a majority in both Houses of Congress and a Republican is President many Democrats are publicly saying that they will refuse to support any Republican proposals regardless of what they are, but I am not hearing the MSM calling them “obstructionist”?

With some Republicans being RINOs (Republican in name only), especially in the Senate, I do not believe the level of dysfunction that exist in Washington today will change until 2019 (after the November 2018 elections). The “Washington Cesspool” has become too self-serving and too “tone deaf” to recognize what is happening in Middle America now. It is going to take another Conservative Patriotic turnout at the ballot boxes in Middle America in November 2018 to begin to empty the “Cesspool”.

 

 

The “Washington Cesspool” Has Clearly Crossed the Line Between Being Un-American and Traitors!

Merriam Webster definition of “Traitor”:

A person who is not loyal to his or her own country, friends, etc. A person who betrays a country or group.

To fully understand the “Washington Cesspool” you must be aware of the following:

  1. The “Washington Cesspool” is huge! It includes the Democrats, RINO Republicans, Main Stream Media, self-appointed members of the “Washington Elite”, most of the Washington career bureaucrats, and many federal employees. In fact the “Cesspool” has become so big it is literally drowning out any one who attempts to “call out” any of its members for anything they do or question anything any of its members say.
  2. Presidents come and go every four to eight years but the “Cesspool” continues to live on as it has for generations, regardless of who is in the White House. In the past the “Cesspool” did expand or contract somewhat, depending on who was in the White House, but after eight years of Obama that is not the case. As I wrote last week, during the Obama Administration the members of the “Cesspool” increased and became totally convinced that they did not need to be concerned about any repercussions, no matter what they did.
  3. The “Cesspool” has a constantly expanding system of “drain lines” that extend out to various state and city governments.
  4. To be a fully functioning member of the “Cesspool” you must suspend all personal semblances of morals, ethics and integrity!
  5. Members of the “Cesspool” are obsessed with one thing, maintaining the “status quo” in Washington, no matter who is in the white house.

And then along came President Donald Trump! And he began to build the most accomplished, qualified, patriotic Presidential Cabinet I am aware of ever existing, and immediately began to delegate authority to his Cabinet Members, other Department heads and his top military commanders to do what is right for America. He is accomplishing this in spite of the “Cesspool’s” traitorous efforts to stop him. Many important Administration appointments are still unfilled today because of the “Cesspool’s” traitorous actions!  Compare this to Obama’s chosen appointees. Almost all of them were given an immediate “rubber stamp” of approval by the Senate, including its RINO Republicans who were led by the top RINO, John McCain. McCain even publicly said during the Obama appointee confirmation hearings that, “Presidents deserve to have the appointees of their choice in their Administration”. Odd that he does not feel that way about President Trump’s choices?  In fact it is the opposite for RINO McCain regarding President Trump’s chosen appointees. McCain actually attacked a number of them during their confirmation hearings. McCain even loudly threatened to use his committee chair authority to remove one appointee from consideration.

Every day it appears to me that the “Cesspool” is becoming louder and more desperate to take the Trump Administration down, which tells me that they know that they are in a battle for their corrupt way of life! It has gotten so bad that I have to turn the TV off more and more, even FOX NEWS! Today while I was eating lunch I saw part of an interview with a “Cesspool” member who stared into the camera and said (with a deep and solemn look of concern on his face), “Donald Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer will be the end of the Trump Administration”.  REALLY???  The entire Trump Administration is going to be taken down over a legitimate meeting that now appears to have been deliberately arranged by members of the “Cesspool” to bolster the totally unfounded Trump Russian Connection accusations?  Needless to say I turned the TV off rather than listen to any more of that disgusting “manure shoveling”. Thank goodness for Face Book, twitter and a few actual Conservative authors and commentators like Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson.

As I thought about and wrote this article I also thought about how deeply concerned I have become over the last few years about the future of America. I developed these concerns as I watched:

> The “Cesspool” grow and openly “go public” with no fear of any personal  repercussions regardless of what they did.

> George Soros, and other America haters who are obsessed with forcing America to become part of their vision of a “one world order,” openly work to destroy America.

> The “brain dead” Liberals eagerly joining the well organized and heavily funded efforts    to “fundamentally change America”.

> The well organized groups, with what appears to be unlimited funding and tax free group status awarded by the Obama criminal IRS and Department of Injustice, openly working to destroy our Constitutional Republic form of Government.

On a positive note, even as I watch everything I have noted here continue to happen, over the last few months I have become cautiously optimist about the future of America! I now believe that with Donald Trump as President and with the rising support of so many Patriots who love America, the “Cesspool” can be “pumped out”. It is not going to be easy or quick because the members of the “Cesspool”, as noted above, are obsessed with one thing, “maintaining the status quo” in Washington, a “status quo” that has existed for generations.

I have written and published a number of detailed articles on this and related topics. You can find them all posted here on my website.

 

 

Washington is Not a Swamp. It is a Cesspool!

Merriam Webster definitions of cesspool:

  1. an underground reservoir for liquid waste (such as household sewage)
  2. a filthy, evil, corrupt place or state (a cesspool of corruption)

Here is a tiny sample of Washington’s “filthy, evil, corruption”:

The first chapter of Eric Bolling’s new book, “The Swamp” begins with a detailed description of Senator Ted Kennedy’s callous indifference to killing Mary Jo Kopechne in what seems to me to be a clear case of aggravated manslaughter. While she was dying trapped in the submerged car, in a small pocket of air, he was being consumed with trying to figure out how to prevent this from interfering with his plans to be President! If you look at the facts in the case she most likely could have been saved had he alerted authorities immediately!  Even after this he was repeatedly re-elected to the Senate until his death 40 years later, and was considered to be a superstar to all liberals. He was even given a “state funeral” as if he was President when he died!

Also in the first chapter of the book, “The Swamp”:  “the police reporting site, Capitol Hill Blue, did a study of then-current Congress members arrest records and reported that twenty nine had been accused of spousal abuse, seven had been arrested for fraud, nineteen had been accused of writing bad checks, one hundred and seventeen had bankrupted at least two businesses, three had been arrested for assault, seventy one were unable to qualify for credit cards, and eight had been arrested for shoplifting.  Another Capitol Hill Blue survey found that in 1998 alone 84 of 535 members of Congress had been stopped for drunk driving. But in all cases they were released by the loyal United States Capitol Police after claiming congressional immunity”!!!

Sharyl Attkisson’s new book, “Smear’ is another, long and detailed, book about the astonishing level of corruption that exists in Washington today, and has existed for decades! One example of unbelievable corruption,  that she details, is that there are Congressional staffers, whose salaries and expense accounts are paid with tax payer dollars, whose sole duties are to dig up dirt on the opposition, or create it, and then share it with friendly Main Stream Media people who will eagerly publish it as “news”! As noted above this is a long and detailed book that is well worth the effort to read it. And if you really want to fully appreciate this book I strongly suggest you read her first book, “Stonewalled” before you read “Smear”. It is a horrifying description of how traitorous the Washington Cesspool really is, including various government agencies and the Main Stream Media.

Maxine Waters lives in a high end gated community in California, which is not in her district, and has a residence in Washington. How does she do this on $175,000 per year? She does it by doing whatever she wants to do with tax payer dollars, like illegally using bank bailout funds to save a California bank her husband had stock in and was also a paid member of the bank’s board of directors. This was clearly a federal crime that the bi-partisan Congressional Ethics Commission spent over a million dollars investigating but could not agree on any recommendations for action against her! This is why some Republicans tried to pass legislation earlier this year to eliminate this expensive “sham” commission, but they were loudly shouted down by Democrats and RINO Republicans who want to keep this “sham” commission so they can continue to “whitewash” any potential investigations of Congressional wrong doing they want to cover up.

Shelia Jackson Lee, like Maxine Waters and many other members of the House of Representatives, remains in Congress solely because her district lines were deliberately drawn to guarantee that. I watched her being interviewed by Neil Cavuto earlier this week and she was furious that he dared to question her public declaration that she would not vote for ANYTHING that the Republicans wanted to do, especially if Trump wanted it! Another bit of her history that is “revealing” about the level of corruption in Washington is about the voter registrations in her district. Several years ago a non-partisan voter integrity organization began a study of the registered voters in her district. They began by researching the registered Democrats in her district where five or more had the same address, and then moved on to four or more with the same address. What they found was that many of the multiple registered voter addresses did not exist, or were not residential addresses or could not possible be reasonable living quarters for multiple adults. No surprise that this non-partisan voter integrity organization was one of the groups that was targeted, and then shut down  by Obama’s criminal IRS and Department of Injustice.

Recently I saw a collection of video footage of Chuck Schumer where he was speaking on the floor of the Senate in the past and since President Trump was elected……This could not be the same person, but it is!

Nancy Pelosi. Do I really need to elaborate on this deranged person?

John Lewis is continues to play off of what he did over 50 years ago, while living a life of luxury with an expensive Washington townhouse, on his $175,000 a year Congressional Salary?

John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chair, and former partner in an international consulting firm that did work for foreign governments and foreign business entities, was called to testify before a closed door Congressional committee. When he exited the hearing he gave an impromptu press conference and talked about what he was asked and his answers. He lied about this so blatantly that the committee chair person immediately called him out publicly!

Insider leaks from people in Congress and Obama holdovers are literally doing criminal damage to America, with eager help from the Main Stream Media. In some cases testimony from closed door Congressional hearings has been leaked before the hearing was over!

Trained and paid protest organizers are organizing, and in some cases paying, protesters to attack every Republican appearance in their district or state! The same is not true for Democrats!  

Recent surveys, by somewhat reputable survey organizations, show noticeable increases in the percent of Democrats who openly say that they ARE NOT PROUD TO BE AMERICAN!

You will not hear anything about any of this from the Main Stream Media.

Clearly the Washington Cesspool is a huge financial criminal organization that the Democrats and RINO Republicans suddenly see as being threatened by the Trump Administration and the few actual Conservatives in Washington. The Democrats and RINO Republicans are so desperate to save the Cesspool they will do anything to save it. What is even more astonishing about all this is that these people have NO FEAR of any repercussions for their actions! If Washington’s history is any indication of what to expect they seem to be justified in their lack of fear of any repercussions regardless of what they do. Time will tell if this is still true. My money is on the Trump Administration.

 

 

 

Waste, Fraud and Corruption. A Glaring Example of Misuse of Taxpayer Dollars, Planned Parenthood.

This is not a pro or anti abortion article. As the title says it is about blatant misuse of taxpayer dollars and the Democrats and RINO Republicans who enable it. It will be one of the shortest articles I have published and will include links to articles with more details because the facts speak for themselves.

Facts:

Planned Parenthood donated $734,000 to the recent failed Jon Ossoff campaign for Congress in Georgia. They were the second largest contributor to his campaign, second only to the Democratic Congressional Election Committee.  http://truthfeed.com/planned-parenthood-donated-734000-to-failed-georgia-election/84123/

It is important to note that none of the Main Stream Media has even acknowledged Planned Parenthood’s involvement in that election.

Spending huge amounts of money on political campaigns is “standard operating procedure” for Planned Parenthood, their subsidiaries and their executives. They have a long history of heavy donations to liberal Democrats and liberal organizations. Some reports indicate that they donated as much as $20 million to Hillary’s recent failed Presidential campaign. Planned Parenthood and their subsidiaries are a mixture of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations. 501(c))(4) tax exempt organizations are allowed to be politically active. http://freebeacon.com/politics/planned-parenthood-pours-cash-to-clinton/

Recently I published a detailed article about Obama’s criminal IRS rushing to hand out tax exempt status to groups who shared their America hating Ideology. You can read the article here: http://www.onlymakessense.com/obamas-organizing-for-action-relaunches-its-efforts-to-fundamentally-change-america-and-they-may-succeed/

The CEO of Planned parenthood, Cecile Richards’ annual salary in 2014 was $590,000 dollars. I am sure it has increased every year since. In addition there are numerous other executives at Planned Parenthood, and their various subsidiary organizations with six figure annual salaries (some of them almost) as much as Cecile.  http://www.lifenews.com/2015/07/01/planned-parenthood-president-cecile-richards-makes-590000-aborting-babies-for-a-living/

In addition to their bloated incomes the staff at Planned Parenthood, and it subsidiaries have fat benefit packages and excessive travel and expense accounts including travel on private jets.

Government funding for Planned Parenthood this year was $540.6 million. Over the last ten years it was over $4.3 billion.  http://www.foxnews.com/tax-calculator/2015/07/24/government-funding-planned-parenthood-10-years

Republicans in the House defunded Planned Parenthood last year but Democrats and RINO Republicans insisted on putting the funding back in the budget. A Democrat had the gall to say that the $500 million was not really significant in the overall Federal budget, and RINO Republicans had the gall to agree with this statement!

Merriam Webster:

Gall: brazen boldness coupled with impudent assurance and insolence.

Cecile Richards is the daughter of Ann Richards, a career hard Left Texas Democrat. As the old saying goes, “the apple did not fall far from the tree”.

As I have written in a number of my recent articles I hope the Democrats and RINO Republicans keep doing what they are doing. If they do it will assure that many of them will be replaced with Conservative Patriots in 2018, 2020, and 2022, and that President Trump will be re-elected in 2020 and replaced with a Conservative Patriot in 2024 (Mike Pence?).

Business Management 101, Trump Versus Obama! What is the Difference Between Successful Business Managers and Incompetent LOOSER Managers?

One of the most basic rules of business that is taught in introductory classes in Business Management schools is, “The most successful Business Managers are the managers that are always trying to hire their replacements”. The initial response to a college professor telling students this is always one of the following:

  1. A look of obvious dismay on the students face, followed by the question, “If I do that will I not always have to worry about them trying to get me fired so they can get my job”?
  2. A brief thoughtful expression on the students face, followed by an observation, “That makes sense because they will be constantly working to get ME promoted so they can be promoted”.

I still have clear memories of the college professor who explained the “rule” to my entry level Business Management class, and watching the other students in my class react to it. During my entire professional career in Manager and Senior Executive Positions I saw many managers whose management philosophy was clearly described by “reaction” number 1 or number 2 above. I never saw a case where a manager whose management philosophy was described by reaction number 2 who was not successful. Nor did I ever see a manager whose management philosophy was described as reaction number 1 who did not fail miserably while they were in a manager position.

When you think about these two business philosophies, “reaction” number 1 or 2, you will notice there is a simple way to describe successful business managers versus looser business managers. Successful business managers are totally driven to succeed while looser managers are obsessed with protecting their job.

How does this article’s introduction apply to President Trump and Obama? If you look at the two men as a whole, their training and education, their business and people skills, and their work ethic, it is undeniable that President Trump is a textbook “reaction” number 2 manager and Obama is a textbook “reaction” number 1 manager.

President Trump worked to educate himself and build a lifelong resume of business successes. His work ethic is remarkable. He regularly works 18 hours a day, and most of the time seven days a week. Even when he is not “officially” working he is still thinking about work and working at some level. He is constantly evaluating the people around him, listening to them, talking to them, advising them and empowering them. He is totally “success oriented”. He is a text book business professional, over achiever and American Patriot.

Obama’s education and work history was all “me focused”. None of it required any management skills or contributed to the development of any management skills. He is arrogant and self-centered. He has a terrible work ethic, he is lazy. When he was President he preferred to avoid hard decisions and have dinner with the family every day that he was not in “campaign mode”. He cannot be counted on to tell the truth when it does not fit his immediate agenda. He is an absolute text book example of “reaction” number 1. He is totally “me” driven versus being “success” driven. And he clearly dislikes America as it is today.

There have been endless books and articles written about these two men. Here is a small sample of both men’s past actions that confirm that President Trump is a “reaction” number 2 manager and Obama is a “reaction” number 1 manager:

President Trump:

Graduated from a prestigious business college.

Spent a lifetime building one of the most successful, international construction, property ownership and property management businesses in the world.

Works at surrounding himself with the most qualified and successful people in the business world.

Empowers people who report to him to make decisions and carry out all duties they are authorized to do to maximize the performance of their assigned departments or agencies.  Rex Tillerson’s, Jeff Session’s’ and John Kelly’s recent actions on the world stage are perfect examples of President Trump’s “reaction” number 2 business philosophy. Rex Tillerson actually stood in the Korean DMZ and quietly but very firmly stated America’s policy on international relations and keeping America safe.

Opened a very successful dialogue with China’s President regarding Korea and China being a better business partner with the U.S. Not only is the Chinese President taking action to help us with the North Korea crisis, he is communicating with President Trump and other top level Chinese officials are communicating with U.S. officials.

Obama:

Had his college and law school records sealed, but from what has become public he was not an outstanding student. Nor did he complete courses or engage in any activities that helped him be qualified to do anything other than be a community organizer or “second rate” lawyer.

After law school he spent his time writing a self- aggrandizing book while “pretending to be a law school professor”, working as a “community organizer” and then making his first political move which was finagling a seat in the Illinois State Legislator.

As President he worked at surrounding himself with the most unqualified, ideological, sycophants imaginable. Van Jones is a perfect example of the people Obama surrounded himself with. Jones was a declared Socialist, “9/11 Truther, has a criminal record and had absolutely no qualifications to be Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar”.

Made sure that no one who worked for him at any level would dare deviate from the Obama “current public policy” on any issue.

Mismanaged America’s international relations so badly that no other country trusted us, respected us or feared us while he was President.

During his eight years in office Obama was the perfect person for the hard Left Democratic Party to use to solidify their unnegotiable goal to destroy America and make it part of the “One World Order”.

We have only 18 months until the 2018 midterm elections, but I am cautiously optimistic that President Trump with his staff and Cabinet Secretaries (when he finally gets all of them approved by the Senate), can fix many of the problems in America and insure that America will be a strong Constitutional Republic for many years to come. However, he still needs the support of every Patriotic American who stood up in November 2016 and said, “no more”. We cannot sit down and become silent if we want to keep the America we love and want today’s youth to have the privilege to grow up in it,  live in it and pass it on to their children.
