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He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.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He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally.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?).

You can find all my articles on this and related subjects here on my website.

 

 

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.

Author’s note: I have researched, written and posted detailed articles about everything I have touched on here and more. You can find them all here on this website.

Obama’s “Organizing for Action” RELAUNCHES its Efforts to “Fundamentally Change America”! And They May Succeed?

While researching and writing my article last week about organizations like Black Lives Matter (BLM) getting a tax exempt IRS 501(c)3 designation I discovered that the Obama Administration went even farther than that with some liberal/progressive organization’s tax exempt designations!  Obama’s “Organizing for Action” (OFA) got a 501(c)4 designation, This is even more “troubling” than BLM getting the tax exempt designation, 501(c)3, because the OFA tax exempt designation 501(c)4 allows organizations to “engage in substantial lobbying activities”! 

The following information regarding this tax exempt designation was taken directly off the IRS website:

Types of Organizations Exempt under Section 501(c)(4)

Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(4) provides for the exemption of two very different types of organizations with their own distinct qualification requirements. They are:

Social welfare organizations: Civic leagues or organizations not organized for profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare, and

Local associations of employees, the membership of which is limited to the employees of a designated person(s) in a particular municipality, and the net earnings of which are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational or recreational purposes.

Homeowners associations and volunteer fire companies may be recognized as exempt as social welfare organizations if they meet the requirements for exemption. Organizations that engage in substantial lobbying activities sometimes also are classified as social welfare organizations.

Why did I say that OFA having this tax exempt designation is “troubling”?  All you have to do is look at OFA’s history to answer that question. OFA is an organization that evolved out of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, which evolved out of “Organizing for America”, which was part of Obama’s 2008 election campaign. OFA was formed and is operated by former Obama campaign and administration staff. It is an organization whose “Mission Statement” is to fulfill Obama’s dream of “Fundamentally Changing America”, which  is to ultimately make America part of George Soros’ ”one world order”.

How did a group like OFA get a tax exempt designation like this?  As you can see from the information above there is ample opportunity for racist and corrupt IRS or DOJ personnel to make a BIASED DECISION regarding a group’s eligibility for tax exempt designation, or if they can keep their tax exempt designation if they already have one.

The tax exempt status of all special interest groups must be reviewed and corrected immediately. If it is not America cannot survive!

How does OFA plan to accomplish their “Mission Statement”? “Organizing” is the key word. They already have over 250 organized chapters in America and are aggressively training people to form new chapters where they can teach people how to effectively “protest”. Their intent is to disrupt every event in America where the people involved do not agree with the liberal/progressive agenda. They teach protest organizers basic disruptive tactics. These tactics include, ask likeminded friends to protest with them, take signs with them that oppose any conservative agenda or promote their liberal/progressive agenda, do not sit together in groups to maximize their ability to disrupt speakers that they do not agree with, loudly shout down speakers that they do not agree with to prevent them from speaking, and organize groups of protesters outside the venue to try and prevent people that they do not agree with from entering the venue.  If you watched the footage from Congressman Jason Chavez’s attempt to hold a “Town Hall” meeting in his district in Utah recently you saw just how effective these tactics are when they are organized and executed according to the OFA playbook.

OFA has also aligned itself with other liberal/progressive groups like “270 Strategies”. In some cases OFA and the liberal/progressive groups they interact with have staff that work with more than one organization and all want to be a “World Changing” organization with a focus on similar issues and causes.  When you compare OFA and “270 Strategies” websites it is obvious how closely aligned organizations like these are. According to the OFA website the specific “Issues” they focus on are climate change, immigration reform, economic opportunity, expanding equality, gun violence prevention, healthcare, and stand with women. According to the “270 Strategies” website they “support clients like SEIU, Planned Parenthood, the Environmental Defense Fund, Everytown for Gun Safety, the College Board, and AARP on a range of issues — including immigration reform, health care access, women’s equality, raising the minimum wage, education standards, and mobilizing voters to take action on climate change”.

When you look at all the anarchist activity that has been happening in America in recent years, and the fact that it has increased dramatically in recent months, there is only one conclusion. It is undeniable that all the liberal/progressive groups are tied together like a giant spider web, are well organized and funded, and have one objective, which is a “One World Order’.We did not get to this place in America just during Obama’s two terms in office,  but his administration did bring us to what I believe is the final stages of this world wide crisis!

As I said in closing some of my recent articles, getting President Trump elected was only the beginning. We must continue to support him, his staff and the actual Conservatives who are in Washington so President Trump can continue to do what he set out to do and pledged to do. Stay informed and involved. Communicate with your elected representatives and demand changes regarding term limits, open public records, transparency in all government activities, fiscal responsibility, and reasonable performance standards for all government employees.

 

Liberal’s Astonishing “Tax Exempt Group” Corruption

Note, the “tax exempt groups” referred to in this article are the groups that apply for, and are approved for tax exempt IRS designation 501(c)3.

Recently I learned that “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) was given tax exempt status by the Obama Administration and  received a $100 million commitment from the Ford Foundation and $50 million from George Soros. This is very troubling to me. Especially when you consider that during the Obama Administration there were hundreds of conservative groups’ tax exempt applications illegally delayed, with many never getting approved. When I became aware of BLM being designated as a tax exempt group I researched IRS tax exempt group requirements and activities. What l found was very “troubling”!

David Horowitz provides a lot of details in his new book, “Big Agenda” about the astonishing imbalance that exist regarding liberal tax exempt groups versus conservative tax exempt groups. For example, liberal groups have more than $100 billion in assets. This is more than 10 times the assets that conservative groups have. The significance of this huge asset advantage is the liberal groups’ annual income from their assets is more than 10 times the annual income the conservative groups have from their assets!  And this does not count the huge annual contributions the liberal groups get from wealthy, America hating liberals like George Soros. What is even more frightening is that some of the data Horowitz referenced was from 2012, which is the latest data available when he wrote the book. From everything I have read and heard, during Obama’s last four years the GAP between the number of liberal tax exempt groups and conservative tax exempt groups, and their funding, got much bigger!

Here are two specific examples from Horowitz’s book that indicate, by comparison how overwhelming the liberal group numbers, and revenue, was in 2012:

  • There were 117 liberal tax exempt organizations that devoted more than 50% of their activities to advocating for open borders and citizen rights for illegal aliens. There were only 9 conservative groups opposing the liberal groups’ agendas.
  • The liberal groups noted above had $306.1 million to support their agendas while the conservative groups had only $13.8 million to support their efforts to oppose the liberal groups’ agendas.

 

How did such an imbalance in tax exempt groups happen? As you can see from the following information taken off the IRS website there is ample opportunity for IIRS and DOJ personnel to make a BIASED DECISION regarding a group’s eligibility for tax exempt designation, or if they can keep their tax exempt designation if they already have one.

According to the IRS website in order to qualify for tax exempt designation, organizations “must be organized and operated exclusively for tax exempt purposes “. They “may not be an action organization, ie., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against  political candidates”. “The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interest”.

“Exempt Purposes – Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3)

The exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3) are charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or international amateur sports competition, and preventing cruelty to children or animals.  The term charitable is used in its generally accepted legal sense and includes relief of the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged; advancement of religion; advancement of education or science; erecting or maintaining public buildings, monuments, or works; lessening the burdens of government; lessening neighborhood tensions; eliminating prejudice and discrimination; defending human and civil rights secured by law; and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.”

As noted earlier it is easy to see how the requirements for tax exempt designation are somewhat “open to interpretation” by a racist and corrupt IRS or DOJ.

In his book Horowitz also points out that many of the liberal tax exempt groups have non tax exempt arms where they openly conduct partisan activities, sometimes with the same personnel doing both tax exempt and non-tax exempt activity. Who decides where the lines are drawn in these situations? The IRS or the DOJ!

Obviously the frightening imbalance in liberal tax exempt groups versus tax exempt conservative groups was not a creation of the Obama Administration, but it did get much bigger during Obama’s two terms in office. It actually began during Bill Clinton’s two terms in office. In one of my previous articles I detailed how the DOJ became the Depart of Injustice during the Clinton Administration, remained that way to a degree during President  Bush’s two terms (due to 911 and the resulting war on terror consuming practically all the Bush Administration’s time and efforts), and then became the Department of Injustice on steroids as soon as Obama was sworn in to his first term in office. Having an openly racist and corrupt Department of Injustice was a critical component of the explosion of liberal tax exempt groups and the open suppression of conservative tax exempt groups during Obama’s two terms in office

I originally thought that the suppression of conservative groups applying for tax exempt status during Obama’s first term in office had a significant effect on the 2012 presidential race. Now that I know what an imbalance we have between tax exempt liberal groups and conservative groups, I am convinced that this situation did play a major role in Obama’s re-election. It is also easier to understand how:

  • The protest movements like Occupy, BLM, and the Anti Trump Woman’s March were so large and well-coordinated.
  • Hillary, the most flawed Presidential candidate in history got so many votes.
  • The absurd efforts in Washington to disrupt the Trump Presidency are so persistent.

The tax exempt status of all special interest groups must be reviewed and corrected immediately. If it is not America cannot survive!

As I said in closing some of my recent articles, getting President Trump elected was only the beginning. We must continue to support him, his staff and the actual Conservatives who are in Washington so President Trump can continue to do what he set out to do and pledged to do. Stay informed and involved. Communicate with your elected representatives and demand changes regarding term limits, open public records, transparency in all government activities, fiscal responsibility, and reasonable performance standards for all government employees.

The Depth of Liberalism’s Increasing Violent “Double Standard” is Incomprehensible

For many years I have been unable to comprehend how Liberals could have such an extreme “double standard” on practically everything. I have actually seen Liberals get furious when anyone made an unflattering reference to a liberal, like Hillary, or about a liberal policy or position. And then, the same Liberals will loudly refer to anyone who does not share their views as being racist, misogynist, homophobic, and other derogatory adjectives like the recent “white supremacist” claim by Nancy Pelosi.

As I closely followed all the political events during the 18 months prior to the November 2016 Presidential election it seemed to me that this “double standard” became a “weapon of choice” for Liberals against anyone that did not blindly share their views. And the “Main Stream Media” (MSM) always sides with the Liberals.

Here are just a few examples of the irrational Liberal “double standard”:

Eric Trump was forced to shut down his St Jude charity over public accusations of possible conflicts of interest. While he operated the charity it raised over a million dollars for St Jude with almost all the money raised going to St Jude. On the other hand the Clinton Foundation has raised around two billion dollars (no one knows for sure how much), with practically none of it going to charity. No non-partisan charity rating service has been willing to rate the Clinton Foundation. The last year anyone attempted to rate the Foundation was 2014 when it only gave 5.7 percent of the funds raised to charity, and that went to Bill Clinton’s “Global Initiative” charities! Yet Hillary stood on the stage at one of the debates and declared that 90 percent of the money raised by the Foundation went to charity, and no one called her out on it even though there have been numerous articles and books written about the Foundation, and a documentary film produced about it. All the articles, books and the film detailed how the Foundation is nothing but a “cash machine” for the Clintons, their friends and supporters. And the Clinton Foundation is still operating with no public calls for it to shut down or even be accountable.

Hillary used illegal, unsecured, private servers and ten illegal, unsecured private I phones, I pads and Blackberrys (that we know about) to conduct all her State Department and personal business while she was Secretary of State. When this first became public she held a brief press conference in front of the U.N. and said, “for convenience I elected to use just one devise for my personal and State Department communications” . In addition to the illegal server she had a Blackberry AND an I phone at that time! All this was defended by Liberals and mostly ignored by the MSM. But now the Liberals and MSM are obsessing with President Trump’s tweeting.

The Clinton’s personal net worth surged to over $200 million while she was Secretary of State with most of the money coming from questionable sources. This was defended by Liberals and mostly ignored by the MSM. But now the Liberals and MSM continue to try to tie President Trump and Rex Tillerson to “questionable” connections with Putin.

The Senate “rubber stamped” Obama’s choices for his Cabinet with nine being approved by the day Obama was sworn into his first term. Rino McCain even publicly stated that the President should be able to have who he wanted in his administration. Now the Democrats in the Senate are doing everything they can (with some rino Republicans helping them) to slow down the confirmations of President Trump’s picks and even get some rejected. And to make this Senate confirmation process even more disgusting Cory Booker, a junior Senator for New Jersey, was allowed to speak AGAINST Senator Sessions on the Senate floor during Session’s confirmation hearing to be Attorney General. This has NEVER happened before! On an added note Booker did not meet the legal residency requirements when he ran for the Senate, but the Obama Department of Injustice ignored his questionable residency.

Obama and his staff spent the last few weeks of his time in office loudly announcing how much more stable, safer and better the world is in every way as a result of Obama’s eight years in office. And just before President Trump was sworn in the Obama Administration added to their “better world” announcement that Obama is especially proud that during his eight years in office there was not a single scandal! REALLY?  Meanwhile the Liberals and MSM continue to be obsessed with trying to find anything negative in the past of President Trump, and his cabinet choices to use to smear them. including fake news articles!

Obama pledged a smooth transition and to adhere to the “one President at a time” tradition. But he then said that he would, “stand up anytime his accomplishments were threatened”, and he and his supporters began establishing a “shadow government” in a huge mansion one mile from the White House with the express purpose of undermining everything President Trump and the Republicans try to do over the next four years.

I sincerely hoped that after the election America could return to at least a minimum level of respect for other people’s views and for everyone trying to put America FIRST. Unfortunately this is not happening. Every day now I see Liberals taking their “double standard” to new levels of irrationality. Prior to President Trump being sworn in, Liberals formed a new national movement, “Resist”, with the stated goal of doing everything possible to disrupt the Trump Presidency for the next four years. During the last few days it has become obvious that this “Resist” movement is well organized and coordinated, heavily funded and increasingly willing to use paid anarchist to turn protest into violent riots. The “Resist” goal now seems to be forcing President Trump out of office, not just disrupting his Presidency!

As I said in closing some of my recent articles, getting President Trump elected was only the beginning. We must continue to support him, his staff and the actual Conservatives who are in Washington so President Trump can continue to do what he set out to do and pledged to do. Stay informed and involved. Communicate with your elected representatives and demand changes regarding term limits, open public records, transparency in all government activities, fiscal responsibility, and reasonable performance standards for all government employees.

 

 

America is a Constitutional Republic, Not a Democracy or Any Other Undesirable Form of Government

Over the last few weeks I have seen an increasing number of Liberal, agenda driven people, posting on social media and speaking anywhere they could get in front of a microphone or TV camera. These people are completely irrational, uninformed or worst, deliberately working to destroy America and make us part of George Soros’ “One World Order”. Regardless of which of these three categories they fall into they all have one thing in common. They are all insisting that America is BAD because we elected Donald Trump as President. Some of them are even comparing President Trump to some of the world’s worst dictators, current and past. One example I saw was a lengthy post on Facebook where the writer compared America today to the early stages of the horrible situation that exist in Venezuela today, and compared President Trump to the now deceased Hugo Chavez. The writer used these comparisons to strongly recommend that people in America” RISE UP” against President Trump!  Unfortunately the writer of this post, as misguided as he is, is not alone in his beliefs and desires for the destruction of the Trump Presidency, and consequently the destruction of America!

Regardless of whether the people opposing the Trump Presidency are uninformed, irrational, or really want to destroy America, it is obvious that they do not understand America at all. In America it does not matter who you ARE, what you WANT, or what you DO, you do not get to make America be what YOU want it to be! The Obama Administration was a perfect example of an individual or group that is obsessed with making America be what they want it to be. The reason an individual or group cannot make America be what they want it to be is because our brilliant and far seeing Founding Fathers made sure that cannot happen when they wrote our Constitution and got it ratified creating the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. As long as our government functions as a Constitutional Republic we will continue to be a free nation. When our Constitution is ignored by agenda driven people in power, and they get enough support for their actions, we will cease to be a free nation and will self-destruct into anarchy.

Under our form of Federal Government we have three co-equal branches of Government. The three branches are the “Executive” (the President), “Legislative” (Congress, the House of Representatives and Senate) and “Judicial” (the Supreme Court). There is also an elaborate system of checks and balances in place to keep the balance of power between the three branches in place. Sometimes these checks and balances get a little “fuzzy” when people in positions of power are too “self-centered”. As noted above, the Obama Administration was an example of an administration that was opposed to America’s Constitutional Republic form of government and it’s built in “checks and balances”. The Obama Administration made repeated attempts to bypass the other two branches of our Government and  ignore our system of “checks and balances” while trying to force their chosen way of life on America’s citizens, especially during Obama’s second term.

On November 8, 2016, as a result of the Obama Administration and his sycophant supporter’s disdain for our Constitutional Republic form of government the Patriotic American voters stood up and said “NO MORE”! On that day our Constitutional Republic form of government began to work again like our Founding Fathers intended it to work.

In addition to our Constitutional Republic form of Government America has one more thing that other countries do not have. That is the most patriotic, freedom loving, and heavily armed population in the history of the world. Combine that with qualified patriotic people in positions of power in our Constitutional Republic Government and America is going to be a “shining example” to the rest of the world again.

Notes:

Our State Governments are also modeled after our Federal Government which makes our entire system of Government better than any other Government in the world, past or present.

Here is a link to an article explaining the difference in our Constitutional Republic form of government and a Democratic form of government: http://madisonproject.com/2013/09/we-the-people-a-constitutional-republic-not-a-democracy/

Facts for Michael Moore, Madonna, Katy Perry, Ashley Judd, et all

Fact 1: You have the right in America to free speech and peaceful assembly. However the right to free speech does not allow people to publicly say things like Madonna said at the rally in Washington, “I have thought a lot about blowing up the White House”! You also need to be aware that you do not have the right to declare an election for the U.S. President invalid because you do not like the results. You DO NOT speak for all of America. At the regret of sounding arrogant “obamaish” I will repeat what he rudely said to Senator John McCain in one of the extremely rare times he actually made a weak attempt to do his job and held a bi-partisan meeting at the White House. Obama said, “Elections have consequences, I won”.

Donald Trump won this election with a big Electoral College margin. That is not going to change. Regarding the Electoral College, I have written and published articles about the Electoral College several times in recent months and about how brilliant and far sighted our Founding Fathers were when they created it over 200 years ago. It was created as a way to form the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I firmly believe that without the Electoral College, the Constitution would not have been ratified by all the states that existed at the time. I am also convinced that the Electoral College is as critical to our way of life today as it was then. It prevents California and New York City from having the final say in who our President is and what our national and international policies will be! The Electoral College is part of our Constitution and is NOT going to be changed!

Fact 2: The Democratic Party is DEAD. You Liberals killed it and are in the process of making sure it cannot be revived in any of our lifetimes. You lost the White House, both Houses of the US Congress, most of the State Governments and you are going to eventually lose the Supreme Court, regardless of what Senator Schumer said! You reappointed Nancy Pelosi as House Minority leader, you are about to appoint Keith Ellison (a RADICAL RACIST AMERICA HATING MUSLIM) as head of the National Democratic Party. You have twenty two Democratic Senators up for reelection in the mid-term elections in 2018. Many of these Senators are in states that President Trump easily won. In case you do not understand what will likely happen in the 2018 elections in these states? It means that after these elections the Democratic Party will be even more DEAD than it is now!  With 65 to 70 of the 100 Senate seats filled by solid Republicans after the 2018 elections no one can prevent President Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court from being approved, and there will likely be at least three of the nine replaced in the next four years!

Fact 3: President Trump’s Cabinet choices are the most successful, qualified, patriotic picks that I have ever seen. Schumer can grand stand for the TV cameras and the rino Republicans can let him get away with delaying their approval but he cannot stop their approval. They will serve America WELL! I wrote about what an extraordinary group of people they are in my article published last week.

Fact 4, my final note in this article: No democratic country has ever survived when it stopped being a strong two party country! You self-centered pompous asses are destroying our country and the “sheeple” are following you!  For example the LGBTQ “dance party” on Vice President Elect Pence’s front lawn DID NOT HELP YOUR CAUSE! Look in the mirror and WAKE UP before it is too late!

Successful Patriotic Federal Government Cabinet Members and Department Heads Versus Failed Idealogues

I have heard and read a lot of Liberal “displeasure” regarding President Elect Trump’s picks for his Cabinet.  Many Liberals are especially upset that so many of Trump’s picks have long and successful careers in the private sector and are wealthy. Why? That does not surprise me at all. It is just one more example of how irrational, incompetent, and in many cases corrupt Obama’s Liberal base is.

There are two basic rules that all successful business people follow. These rules have never failed to prove to be RIGHT. They are:

  1. You can delegate authority but not responsibility. This means that if you are the person “in charge” you are ultimately responsible for EVERYTHING that the people reporting to you do.
  2. The most successful managers are the ones who are always trying to “hire their replacement”. What this means is that the most successful people in the business world are the people who, when they have a job opening to fill, work very hard at filling that position with the most qualified and successful person they can hire.

There is never any justification for making exceptions to either of these two basic rules.

These basic rules do not just apply to the free enterprise business world. They also apply to our government beginning with the President. It is especially important when the President is making his picks for his Cabinet and Department heads. An obvious example of a President/executive who failed miserably at following these basic rules of business, numerous times, is Obama. He appointed sycophant ideologues to every position he had the authority to fill and then every time there was a major mistake made by, or worse a corrupt act carried out by, any branch of the Federal Government, he said that he first “heard about it in the news”.

All of the members of a President’s cabinet are absolutely critical to the Presidents success in taking care of America and positively influencing what happens in the rest of the world. Two that are especially critical are the Secretary of State and the U.S. Attorney General. 

Regarding the Secretary of State, when you compare Hillary and John Kerry to Rex Tillerson the difference in their resumes is SHOCKING!  Hillary’s entire adult life is a public record open book beginning with her being a devoted Saul Alinsky disciple in college, to her record of deliberate gross negligence, incompetence and treason while she was Secretary of State. John Kerry’s entire adult life is also a public record open book with the highlights being a failed Presidential run and ending with four years racing around the world being an Obama sycophant promoting Obama’s failed international policies. Rex Tillerson’s record is one of a lifetime of hard earned personal success in one of the most competitive (ruthless) industries in the world. He began his career at ExxonMobil as an entry level Production Engineer straight out of college. He spent his entire career there eventually working his way up the ladder to be the company’s top executive in 2006. Under his leadership the company has done extremely well including doing business in many foreign countries. One of the many reasons that ExxonMobil has been so successful doing business in many foreign countries is that it has its own private “State Department” in its corporate headquarters. Quoting “Bloomberg Business Week”, “Behind the walls of ExxonMobil’s secluded corporate headquarters outside Dallas, Texas a little-known intelligence unit works to keep top executives informed on economic, social and political situations around the world so they never walk into a foreign negotiation unprepared. The analysts compile risk profiles for every place Exxon has assets, personnel or may be considering investing”.  As noted earlier the differences in the resumes of Hillary, Kerry and Rex Tillerson are SHOCKING!  Rex Tillerson’s resume is a perfect example of what a Cabinet Member’s resume should be!

Regarding the U.S, Attorney General (AG), when you compare the resumes of Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and Jeff Sessions the difference is SHOCKING! The Holder family and Obama family have been connected by the same ideologies since their college days. Eric Holder’s wife and Michelle Obama were roommates in college and formed the first black only sorority. Eric Holder has been one of the most racist and corrupt Assistant AG’s (under Bill Clinton) and AG’s under Obama in the history of the Department of Justice. Holder’s racist and corrupt history has been written about extensively in a number of books and articles. I wrote about this in detail in one of my recent articles about the “Department of Injustice”. Loretta Lynch stepped right in and continued to lead the Department of Injustice just like Holder did but with less public visibility. Jeff Sessions also has a public open book resume. He has a long and distinguished career that makes him one of the most qualified potential U.S. Attorney Generals to ever be chosen for that position. His impressive biography is available on-line if you wish to read it.

When I look at every one of President Elect Trump’s picks they all have several things in common. None of them need the position they have been chosen to fill. They are all highly qualified for the position they have been chosen to fill. They all have money and have, or had power in their professional careers. They all are volunteering to serve their country, in very difficult and personally demanding jobs out of a sense of duty to their country. Many will be “dollar a year” people, which means they will only accept one dollar a year in salary. None of them is an ideologue or a sycophant or has ever spoken a negative word about America. When you compare every one of President Elect Trump’s picks to all of Obama’s the differences are SHOCKING! .

As I said in closing my article last week, getting President Elect Trump elected was only the beginning. We must continue to support him, his staff and the actual Conservatives who are in Washington so Trump can do what he set out to do. Stay informed and involved. Communicate with your elected representatives and demand changes regarding term limits, open public records, transparency in all government activities, fiscal responsibility, and reasonable performance standards for all government employees.
