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He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.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He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally.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

 

 

Obama and the Democrat’s Legacy After Obama’s Eight Years in the White House!

This is obviously not a complete list of America’s current problems but it is indicative of the depth of problems America is facing after eight years of Democratic control of the White House:

The absolute destruction of the American healthcare system, to the point it may be unsalvageable. The new Democratic proposal to fix it is to replace it with a “single payer” healthcare system. If you want to know how a “single payer” healthcare system works take a look our VA healthcare system and the recent baby Gard case in England. Instituting a “single payer” healthcare system would require a huge expansion of our Federal Government bureaucracy, which would create another massive “transfer of power” to the “Washington Cesspool”.

The final transition of the Democratic Party to an anti-American Socialist party being led by self-centered ego maniacs who refuse to acknowledge what happened to their party in recent elections (they now have less Democrats in elected state and national positions than they have had in almost 100 years). And they continue to obsess with overturning the November 2016 election and putting Hillary and Kaine in the White House!

A totally corrupt, anti-American and dysfunctional Democratic National Committee.

The final death throes of American media that actually reported news. We now have a Main Stream Media (MSM) that loudly obsesses with “fake news” based on un-named sources or obviously fabricated lies. These are recent examples of what we get from the MSM:

  • A widely circulated article that claimed General Kelly called Comey and threatened to resign his position as head of Homeland Security because of Comey’s firing. If you look at any of General Kelly’s long career you will see that he would NEVER take any action like this. This “article” was allegedly based on two un-named sources.
  • CNN host Fareed Zakaria did an on camera analysis of the 2016 Presidential election that can only be described as arrogant and elitist. He actually said that Trump was elected by angry, white, blue collar men who were opposed to the growing influence of women and people of color in American politics!
  • A report that Donald Jr’s written description of his meeting with the Russians last year was dictated by President Trump, while he was on Air Force One returning from one of his international trips, and was fabricated to take attention off of the “Russian Investigations”. This report was allegedly based on a leak from inside Air Force One.
  • Maxine Waters’ endless media exposure to demand that President Trump be impeached.
  • Barbara Lee gets national media coverage of her claim that, “Trump is militarizing the White House with his appointment of General Kelly as White House Chief of Staff and this is putting America at risk”.

International threats to America are at the highest point in American history:

  • More countries are becoming nuclear powers and some are openly threatening to attack America. The most notable are Iran and North Korea.
  • Putin is openly obsessed with restoring the Soviet Union and becoming the most powerful and influential head of state in the world, by any means necessary.
  • The entire Middle East continues to become more unstable with no reasonable solution to improve the situation.
  • Venezuela is descending into total chaos and many Central and South American countries appear to be poised to have their own internal problems due to government corruption and growing gang and drug cartel violence. This will cause total chaos on our southern border.

Several states and many major cities in America are openly defying the rule of law regarding illegal immigrants in exchange for votes and cheap labor.

The US legal immigration system is an engine for graft (dirty money) and corruption.

Various Federal judges are openly defying the rule of law in America and “legislating from the bench”.

We have what can only be described as an unsolvable US debt crisis.

The biggest expansion of entitlement programs in US history.

A dramatic increase in the number of children growing up in broken homes in America.

A dramatic increase in the number of people in America who are unemployable.

A population that is so fragmented that practically no level of Government can function properly.

A dramatic increase in the number of young people in America who feel “entitled” and have no respect for authority.

Opioid addiction crisis in many states.

A dramatic increase in violent gangs in America, including MS13.

A Washington bureaucracy that prefers to destroy America rather than have the “Cesspool” they live in drained!

“Washington Cesspool” – Democrats, RINO Republicans, self-appointed    members of the “Washington Elite”, Washington career bureaucrats,          Federal Government employees, Lobbyist.

17 US intelligence agencies that are increasingly self-serving rather than putting America’s best interest first. Obama made this dramatically worse during his final months in office by unilaterally changing various government rules relating to agency sharing of information (unmasking of Americans).

A Pentagon immigrant recruitment program that had to be suspended when it became obvious that it had been “infiltrated” with immigrants that had been poorly vetted and did not meet the program’s requirements. Some of the immigrants working in the program have “disappeared” (are unaccounted for and are assumed to be somewhere in America).

An overall level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and in many cases treason in every Obama Administration agency and department. This level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and treason never existed in any previous President’s Administration. This was especially true in the IRS, FEC, BATF and DOJ. Some examples of this are Benghazi, ”Fast and Furious”, “Operation Choke Point”, the illegal withholding, destruction of and altering of subpoenaed records, contempt of Congress, an endless stream of new Government regulations issued by bureaucrats and Presidential executive orders without Congressional input……  And many “Obama holdovers” are still in their government positions today doing everything they can to bring down the Trump Presidency!

The Dysfunction in Washington has Gone Way Past Ridiculous!

It looks like almost every Congressional and Senatorial committee is continuing to investigate the Trump Administration, Trump campaign staff, President Trump himself and even his family members over alleged Russian ties! All these committees are chaired by REPUBLICANS! Why are these REPUBLICANS doing this? Is it not time to say enough of this and shut these absurd hearings down and open hearings into the DNC, the Clintons’, their staffs’ and supporters’ corrupt, and in some cases treasonous dealings with various foreign entities?

While Congress and various government agencies are spending unbelievable amounts of time and money investigating President Trump, and virtually everyone connected to his campaign and presidency, not a word has been said about Obama openly interfering with democratic elections in Israel or a European country because he did not like the people who were the leading contenders for the top position in those countries? Obama even used our taxpayer money to fund these efforts.

Regarding the Clintons’ long and well documented history of corruption and treason, RINO Lindsey Graham recently said that “President Trump calling for the Justice Department to investigate a former political rival was inappropriate”. Really!!! This statement is “inappropriate’, especially coming from a Senator who calls himself a REPUBLICAN.

Obama “holdovers” in every Federal government agency continue to illegally leak information to the Main Stream Media and openly support the overthrow of the Trump Administration.

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer at the recent Aspen Security conference, John Brennen, one of Obama’s White House staff and then head of the CIA, encouraged people to take action against the Trump Administration.

The Republicans in the House just allowed the Democrats to demand changes to a Sanctions bill they just passed. This gives Democrats special power that the minority party does not normally have, and limits the President’s power to change the sanctions (a power his office is supposed to have). Why are so many of the REPUBLICANS in Washington helping the Democrats? Simple answer is because they are hard core members of the “Washington Cesspool”.

President Trump’s latest addition to his Administration, Anthony Scaramucci instantly became the Main Stream Media’s new favorite target because of his public focus on stopping illegal leaks about the Trump Administration. On his second day in his new position some of his personal financial information was leaked to the media.

Obviously this list of examples of “Washington Cesspool” members’ corrupt and un-American activities could be much longer, but this short list indicates to me that the “Cesspool” is getting more desperate to save itself from the Trump Administration.

Based on President Trump’s speech in Ohio on July 25, he is not giving up on his promise to “Make America Great Again” and neither are his “Middle America” supporters. The “Washington Cesspool” should be worried!

You can find all my articles about everything I have mentioned here and much more about Washington corruption 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.

 

 

 

Will We Ever See the End of the Clinton’s and Obama’s Corruption? I Think Yes!

There is an old saying, “the best defense is an aggressive offence”.  Since this is obviously the only defense the Democrats have, they are playing it hard 24/7, with the enthusiastic support of the Main Stream Media (MSM) and dishonest, in some instances traitorous, Obama “holdovers” still in Federal Government positions! This is how the Democrats are protecting the Clintons, Obama and all their irrational supporters, but I am beginning to believe that this strategy is not going to work indefinitely. There are just too many of us “middle Americans” who are becoming more disgusted every day with the Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM. It also amazes me that the Democrats are completely oblivious to the growing backlash that is building against them in large parts of America. I sincerely hope the Democrats keep wearing those “rose colored glasses” and ear plugs!  Note to Democrats: you are now 0 to 5 in Congressional special elections (and you still think you can take back the House and Senate in 2018?). Clearly these Congressional special elections proved that Democratic money cannot buy everything.

Here is a small sample of the Democratic offense:

On the day of the ball park shooting 200 Democrats in Congress signed a law suit against President Trump accusing him of “abuse of power” (usurping Congress’s authority). Odd that was not an issue when Clinton and Obama were in office?

Two State’s Attorneys General have filed suits against President Trump claiming that his international businesses are illegal including using his status as President to increase revenue at his hotels.

Maxine Waters, the obviously deranged Congresswoman continues to pop up everywhere screaming that she is going to impeach President Trump. This insane rhetoric from a Representative who lives a lavish lifestyle in a private gated community that is not in her district. She should be in Federal prison for illegally manipulating Federal bank bailout funds to save a bank that she and her husband owned stock in.  She has gotten away with illegal and irrational behavior like this for years because the California legislature drew her district lines so she cannot be defeated for re-election no matter what she does.

Eric Holder publicly announced that he is formally joining the “Resist Trump” movement and is considering running for President in 2020. This ridiculous declaration from a man who was the most openly corrupt, America hating Attorney General in decades. He ignored a Congressional subpoena, lied to Congress repeatedly (under oath), and buried evidence in major corrupt “Department of InJustice” operations. He was so dishonest in his various testimonies before Congress that a Contempt of Congress charge was filed against him with some Democrats voting for the charge, but, of course, the Department of InJustice simply ignored the charge. In spite of all the Obama Administration’s support of Holders blatant corruption as the Attorney General, Holder was eventually forced to resign.

Obama refused to allow GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS on many illegal actions during his administration to be released to legal FOIA request. The latest example of this was a blatant abuse of power just before he left office. He sent the White House records about the illegal “unmasking” of Trump campaign and transition team members to the Obama Presidential Library in Chicago (which is not built yet), which seals the documents for five years!

The Democrats in Congress actually announced earlier this week that they are going to initiate a “work slowdown” in Congress.

The Washington Post recently published a lengthy article about how all the Obama “alumni” are so distressed about Trump being in the White House that they feel like they have a “dagger in their hearts”!

The organized, paid, masked anarchist continue to violently attack conservatives publicly at every opportunity, claiming they are a legitimate “anti-fascism” movement! “antifa” is short for anti-fascism and is the official name this group of anarchist has adopted to identify itself on an international level.

Everybody on the Left, Rino Republicans and the MSM continue to scream about the Trump Russian collusion but none of them can produce any evidence other than un-named sources. I did not hear any complaints from the Left, RINO Republicans or MSM about Obama using tax payer money to send people to interfere with the Democratic elections in Israel and Macedonia?

Everybody on the Left, the RINO Republicans, and the MSM continue to scream about alleged corruption in our election process that supported President Trump, against Hillary. But they are all ignoring a recently released report that documented there were 5.7 million illegal votes in the 2008 election!  Yes the 2008 election!

As noted above, this is only a small sample of the Democratic offensive attacks on President Trump and Conservatives. In fact the Left’s attacks on everything Trump have become so relentless that President Trump, many members of his campaign and transition team, many members of his administration and even some members of his family have been forced to hire private attorneys to defend themselves, at their own expense. Also as noted above, I am increasingly convinced that this will hurt the Democrats and the Rino Republicans in 2018 and 2020!

The Democratic Party’s Derangement, Subversion, Sedition, and Treason, and the Main Stream Media’s Obsessive Support of Their Agenda

Definitions from the  Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Derangement: Mental Illness

Subversion: A systemic attempt to overthrow or undermine a government or political system by persons working secretly from within.

Sedition: Sedition is the rebellious talk and encouragement that might lead a mutiny and can be charged as a crime.

Treason: The crime of trying to overthrow your government or of helping your country’s enemies

Evolution:  A process of change in a certain direction.

The decision to use the words, “derangement”, “subversion, “sedition”, and “treason” to describe Democrats’ and the Democratic Party’s actions in America today was not a decision I made easily. If you really look at the actions of the people who claim to be Democrats today and the people and groups who support them, it is inarguable that those four words are the exact description of their actions and objectives. The Democratic Party has “evolved” into a party that can best be described as a coalition of individuals and groups who are obsessed with destroying America and ultimately replacing it with a “One World Order” government.

One of the most visible “groups” that is obsessively supporting the Democrat’s “final push” to “fundamentally change America” is the “Main Stream Media.” (MSM).  A brief, objective look at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, or NBC news, the front page and editorial page of the New York Times, and internet sites like Huffington Post or VOX will confirm this. Anytime I see anything from these, or dozens of other Liberal media, I cannot help but wonder how these people do what they do? You literally have to “suspend reality” to believe what they are saying.

Examples of “MSM” open dishonesty:

FOX and FRIENDS reported on 3/22/2017 that ABC, CBS and NBC have NOT reported on the brutal rape of the 14 year old girl in the Maryland high school bathroom by illegal immigrants. Bill O’Reilly reported the same thing that night and added CNN and MSNBC to the list. Obviously reporting news like this does not support the Democrat’s “open borders and sanctuary cities” agenda (which is a huge source of guaranteed votes and illegal votes for the Democrats).

The “MSM” is obsessing on a decade old story about a past Trump campaign manager, Manafort’s ties to a Russian businessman while ignoring the hundreds of millions of dollars Bill and Hillary took from foreign governments and individuals, including some with Russian ties, while she was Secretary of State and running for President. The “MSM” is also ignoring Clinton Campaign Chairman Podesta and other Clinton insiders’  “consulting work” with foreign Governments and business people, some of which was recent and some still happening.  http://www.podesta.com/ 

The “MSM” is obsessing with completely unsubstantiated claims about Trump campaign and Administration connections with Russians, while ignoring FBI Director Comey’s testimony that the Russians did NOT give Podesta’s e-mails to WikiLeaks. The “MSM” is also ignoring the question, “did the same people who hacked Podesta’s e-mails and the DNC also hack Hillary’s illegal and unprotected server (which contained State Secrets)?” Some internet experts say YES, and this information would focus new interest on the Hillary server investigation!

Other “groups” that openly obsess with the Democrat Party’s agenda are the coalition of ”Black Lives Matter” groups and Obama’s “Organizing for Action”. These, and many other groups like them, were awarded “tax exempt” group status by the Obama Administration and received hundreds of millions of dollars in funding from Obama Administration “illegal slush funds”, George Soros, the Ford Family Foundation and other extreme Left leaning organizations.

Another group of obsessive Democratic Party agenda supporters is loosely referred to as the “shadow government” This is Obama and Bill/Hillary Clinton supporters that are still employed at various Federal Government agencies and are openly violating a number of federal laws. In addition to other acts of subversion they illegally access private information about President Trump and other prominent Republicans and “selectively” make that information public in ways intended to advance the Democrat Party agenda. One example of this is parts of President Trump’s tax return records being copied and released to the public. Another is ranking Republican Congressman Jason Cheffetz’s personnel file being illegally accessed over 40 times by Secret Service personnel and other Federal Government employees (there has not been any reporting of any disciplinary action against any of the people who illegally accessed his file). Another example is various members of Congress having their phone calls taped and the transcripts selectively released.

Here are a few specific examples of recent deranged, subversive, seditious, and treasonous Democrat and Democratic Party, anti-American and anti-Trump activities:

Employees at VA facilities and other Federal Government facilities refused to hang portraits of President Trump in the facilities. When veterans went to VA facilities to hang portraits of President Trump they were refused access to the facilities or the portraits were taken down by facility staff after the veterans left. When asked why the facility staff refused to allow the portraits to be hung they said that “Trump was not their president and that he was going to be impeached and removed from office”!

RINO Senator Lindsey Graham has spent the last few days getting in front of every TV camera he could find saying negative things about, or at least questioning everything President Trump is doing. One example was that if President Trump’s proposed budget had any cuts to the “State Department” budget it “was dead upon arrival at his desk”.

A Democratic Congressman on FOX news on 3/15/2017 insisted that Obamacare is working well and that all that is needed to fix it is to “empower states to regulate insurance premiums”! Really? Does anyone not know that would put ALL insurance companies out of business and force everyone in America into government run healthcare?

Right after she left office Loretta Lynch, former Obama Attorney General, recorded a video that was released by the Congressional Democrats where she looked into the camera and encouraged violent Anti-Trump protest. Here is one quote from the video, “They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We can do this again.”

Senator Tim Kaine, and 2016 VP candidate said in a TV interview that, “Democrats must be willing to fight Republicans in the streets”.

Recent violent, and destructive (with no arrest) anti-conservative speaker riots at Berkley were led by a middle school teacher who gave TV interviews, including on FOX, where she loudly and angrily  proclaimed it was her right to lead the protest and encourage violence to fight against “Fascism”. At last reporting she is still employed.

During the “Women’s March” on Washington Madonna (on camera wearing a vagina hat) said that she, “wanted to blow up the White House”.

During the “Woman’s March” on Washington Ashley Judd (on camera wearing a vagina hat) called President Trump, and all his supporters, all the negative names the Democrats like to use to describe Conservatives, and then added in Nazi and Hitler. She also included in her poorly delivered and somewhat disjointed monotone, various vulgar references to female body parts.

Federal Judges blocking President Trump’s recent travel bans saying in their official rulings that they blocked the bans implementation based on President Trump’s campaign rhetoric. One judge even declared that the ban violated potential immigrants’ Constitutional rights? I do not understand how people who have never been to America have rights under our Constitution?  It is very clear under Federal law that our President has the undisputed authority to issue executive orders like this to keep America safe. Other Presidents have done this in the past, including Obama, with no issues or resistance. This is another good example of how the “shadow government’ described above operates.

The Democrats love to deliberately use false numbers to loudly support their position on every issue. The latest is their claim that “Obamacare” is doing well and has provided insurance coverage for over 20 million people who were not previously covered. The most credible numbers that I can find indicate the number is actually only 14 million and 11.1 MILLION OF THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ADDED TO MEDICAID. SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ARE CHILDLESS, ABLE BODIED ADULTS. The remaining 2.9 million number is steadly declining due to huge premium increases and huge deductibles and co-pays

During a TV interview with Bret Baier Senator Schumer said that if President  Trump’s proposed budget contained any funds for the border wall that he would force a government shut down and it would  be the REPUBLICAN PARTY’S FAULT!.

Donna Brazile, former DNC Chair and lifelong Liberal spokesperson, repeatedly denied passing confidential debate information to the Clinton campaign team prior to a Presidential debate. One of those times was on FOX news where she denied it and then loudly said, “I am a Christian so I know what persecution is and I am being persecuted about this”. Now she has publicly admitted that she lied and did give the confidential information to the Clinton campaign. Based on my knowledge of Christianity, regardless of what Christian faith you choose to believe in, it is not OK to cheat/steal and then lie about it repeatedly to cover it up. Seems that the Democrats believe differently and live by  a different standard?

Obviously this is only a tiny sample of the anti-Trump, anti-American activities that are openly happening in America today. It would be practically impossible to compose a complete list!

We must stand firm in our support of President Trump and the actual Conservatives in Washington!

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.

 

The Final Days: Obama Adds to his “LEGACY” and the Obama/Hillary “HYSTERIA” Peaks

Early in Obama’s first term as President, Charles Krauthammer, a psychiatrist made the observation that Obama was a pathological narcissist. If there was ever any doubt about that diagnosis, everything Obama is saying and doing in his final days as President will leave no doubt about it.

The behavior of Obama and Hillary supporters leading up to, and especially after the election, also leaves no doubt that you simply cannot reason with a liberal Obama or Hillary supporter.

Here are just a few recent examples that confirm these two observations:

Obama “LEGACY”:

Obama went on an expensive world tour where he held a press conference in every country he visited, and then held a lengthy White House press conference when he returned with the same message.He bragged about how much safer and more stable the world is now after his eight years in office! REALLY?

In a recent interview Obama said that he advised President elect Trump to work with Congress and avoid issuing executive orders! REALLY?

Obama publicly praised President Bush for strictly adhering to the American tradition of only having one President at the time after he left office. Obama then said he would do the same, but added “unless my accomplishments are threatened”!

Obama plans to stay in Washington after he leaves office. He has rented a 20 room Washington mansion from a wealthy liberal friend and has his staff and supporters working around the clock establishing a “shadow government” with the express purpose of opposing the Trump Presidency and continuing to push his anti-American agenda.

The Obama family takes another, one of the most expensive, vacations in presidential history. This forces many people to work during the holidays and interrupts many Hawaii resident’s holidays.

Obama announced five new major regulations at the EPA and Department of Energy. It is estimated that these new rules will cost American businesses about five billion dollars a year in compliance cost including about 350,000 man hours a year just completing paperwork.

Obama issued an executive order putting into place some of the most sweeping and restrictive drilling regulations in history.

New releases from Gitmo are scheduled just before Obama leaves office.

Obama signed  231 Federal prisoner pardons and sentence commutations, a one day record..He claims these are low level drug offenders who were sentenced to harsh prison sentences unfairly due to their race. In every case I have seen where the details were made public this is absolutely not true. They were career criminals who dealt in hard drugs and even illegal guns in some cases. In addition to being non- white they all plea bargained to avoid being prosecuted for additional charges.

The Obama Administration quietly encouraged a surge in illegals with the majority allowed to stay with unrealistic court dates scheduled (for which they will most likely never show up).

Obama eliminated the “male Muslim immigrant from specific countries registry requirement” that was established after 911. This regulation has not been enforced since Obama has been in office.

The US abstained from a UN vote allowing a pro PLO anti-Israel resolution to pass, which cannot be undone.

Obama/Hillary “HYSTERIA”

Jill Stein was used as a “front” and given millions of dollars to try and force recounts in three states. This effort actually caused Hillary to lose votes, Trump to gain votes and uncovered voter fraud in some precincts.

Personal information about Electoral College delegates pledged to Trump, and in some cases their family member’s personal information was made public, resulting in them being barraged with letters, phone calls and emails attempting to get the delegates to NOT cast their vote for Trump. In many instances the delegate or their family members were threatened with financial or physical harm and even death.

When the recount attempts and efforts to force the Electoral College to elect Hillary failed (she actually lost more Electoral College votes than any previous candidate since 1822), the rabid Hillary supporters are now trying to determine other ways to prevent Trump from being certified or otherwise prevent him from serving as President. Efforts being publicly discussed are getting Vice President Biden, as president of the Senate to refuse to certify him or filing a wide variety of criminal complaints/ charges against him. If everything else fails their “last ditch” plan is to file so many law suits against him and his family that he cannot function as President (this actually worked against Sarah Palin when she was governor of Alaska).

New efforts to do away with the Electoral College, or find a way to avoid it are being launched in Congress and eleven states.

MTV posted an online video that was one of the most racist, un-American and disgusting videos that I have ever seen. It featured young people saying things like, “America has never been a great place unless you were an old white guy” and insulting Fox News. This is what our young people are being taught in America now?

No Washington high school has applied for a permit to march in the inaugural parade.

Major performers are not willing to participate in the Trump inauguration.

Massive boycotts and protests are being organized for inauguration day in Washington and other major cities.

In spite of the long standing tradition of Presidents getting to pick their cabinet members and department heads Senate Democrats are already planning to try and  block an unprecedented number of President elect Trump’s picks.

Sanctuary cites are “doubling down” plus allocating tax payer dollars to provide increased legal assistance for illegals fighting deportation.

A Hillary supporter verbally assaulted Ivanka Trump while she was traveling in coach on a Jet Blue flight with her husband and three children. The verbal assault was so vicious and disruptive that the man, who was carrying a small child at the time, was removed from the flight before it left the gate. The man’s partner was twitting and posting on Face Book about what they were doing in advance and during the verbal assault

A New York artist saw a picture of Ivanka Trump with a piece of his art on the wall behind her and issued a public demand that she remove his art from her home.

Some famous designers have publicly stated that they will not “dress” Melania Trump.

Obama played more golf than any President in History by a substantial margin, yet some of the media criticized Trump for playing golf with Tiger Woods one afternoon this week?

Eric Trump was forced to shut down his St Jude charity foundation due to “conflict of interest” accusations. He has raised over a million dollars for St Jude with 97% of all money raised going to St Jude.

STAY TUNED FOR THE FINAL WEEKS! It is going to get much worse with each passing day!

The Electoral College is Still a Critical Part of Our Constitutional Election Process

Every time I thought about the Founding Fathers throughout my life I always came to the same conclusion. These men were absolutely brilliant and their ability to understand human nature and predict the future was phenomenal!  The Electoral College is just one example of that.

The Electoral College was included in the Constitution to solve a significant set of problems that existed at the time, but when you consider the demographics of America today the Electoral College is still a critical part of our election process.

When the Constitution was written America had thirteen fiercely independent states, spread out over a thousand miles of the eastern sea coast, with a total population of about four million people. When you consider the fact that no formal established means of communication existed between the states, developing a method for holding fair and equitable national elections was a daunting task. That is why the Electoral College became part of our original Constitution. Without it certain key states would have carried such a majority of the votes that other states would not have had a voice in national elections, national affairs, or international affairs, and the United States of America would not have HAPPENED! 

The following explanation of the Electoral College process is posted on the US Government Archives

The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution in 1787 as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens.

The selection of the electors, the meeting of the electors, where they vote for the President and Vice President and the counting of the electoral votes by Congress are all part of the process.

Today the Electoral College has 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state’s allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators.

Under the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution, the District of Columbia is allocated 3 electors and treated like a state for purposes of the Electoral College. For this reason the word “state” also refers to the District of Columbia.

Each candidate running for President in your state has his or her own group of electors. The electors are generally chosen by the candidate’s political party, but state laws vary on how the electors are elected and what their responsibilities are.

Any changes to the Electoral College process require a Constitutional Amendment, which is NOT going to happen!

Today the lack of a formal established means of communication that the Founding Fathers faced has obviously been solved, but the demographics of America still justify the Electoral College process for choosing our President. Here are a few examples of why that is true:

  • California has approximately 12% of the total U.S. population.
  • Approximately 40% of the total U.S. population lives on the west coast and the central/north east coast.
  • Six of the states that issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants are on the west and central/north east coast, which adds to the potential voter rolls in those states.

These three statistics alone make it clear that without the Electoral College all our national elections would be decided by the states on the west and central/north east coast. Which means all national elections, and consequently national and international affairs would be decided by these states. That is the America our Founding Fathers were so afraid of!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the Next 50 Days We May See America Torn Apart

Over the last few days it has become clear that there is absolutely NO chance that we can take a cautious step back and breathe a little easier between now and inauguration day! The Left is still determined to “anoint” Hillary regardless of the cost or resulting damage to America. In fact it now seems obvious to me that Trump’s win actually fits right in with the Left’s plan to “fundamentally change America”, even if it has to be done with violence. There are just too many things happening now to deny it.

To begin with we had “instant” protest that became riots immediately after the election results were announced. These protests were organized by paid protestors who for the most part did not live where they were protesting and did not vote in the election. I saw a protest leader in Chicago being interviewed on camera last week. When asked if he voted he said, “No, there is nothing to vote for in this country”. REALLY? According to some of the protest organizers the protests will continue and grow in size, and violence with the intent of disrupting the Presidential inauguration (unless they can succeed with their plans to “anoint” Hillary). However, the protests are nothing compared to everything else that the Left is doing.

Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, with lots of help recently began to demand a recount in key states. However since no one could point to any evidence of voter machine tampering there is no justification for a recount. Consequently anyone who asks for a recount in a specific state will have to fill out the necessary paperwork, before that states deadline, and pay for the recount. Jill Stein actually held a press conference and acknowledged that “experts” could not find any evidence of voter machine tampering but insisted they wanted recounts to assure future elections were fair. Remarkably her group suddenly got $6 million in “donations” so she could formerly request recounts and pay for them. Amazing that $6 million just appeared in her group’s bank account!  And now the Clintons have publicly announced that they will join this recount effort.

Unfortunately the recount effort is by no means the biggest threat to the election results. There is another organized and well-funded effort to change enough Electoral College votes to keep Trump out of the Whitehouse. These people have two websites up and running and are actively working to get Electors that are committed to Trump to change their votes to Hillary. Two have already publicly announced that they are changing their votes and are making the rounds on TV shows, including FOX trying to convince other Electors to do the same. I am having more than a little trouble understanding how anyone could seek a slot as an Elector, take an oath to carry out their duties as the voters in their state desired, and then publicly violate that oath and work to encourage others to do the same thing. Unfortunately only 25 states and the District of Columbia legally require that their Electors vote like they were committed to do by the voters. Unfortunately the penalty for violating that law is a small fine, which I am sure Clinton supporters will be happy to pay for anyone who changes their vote to Hillary!

We also have Liberal members of Congress doing everything they can to cast doubt on the Trump transition team’s work and throw “road blocks“ out in front of the transition team’s work. Elijah Cummings was one of the first to actively start this effort by writing a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) demanding they audit the transition team because” it is in such disarray that it is probably misspending tax payer money”. And then Elizabeth Warren loudly and publicly joined in the efforts to demand that the GAO audit the Trump transition team’s work. These people want the GAO to waste taxpayer money and interfere with the Trump transition team’s work at a critical time because they think the team is in disarray?

In case you do not know their history these letters to the GAO and their public statements about the Trump transition team are typical behavior for Elijah Cummings and Elizabeth Warren. For example Cummings has a long history of “Abuse of Power” activity. He was one of the original members of Congress to demand, in writing that the IRS do something about the conservative groups that were applying for tax free group status during Obama’s first term. When an organizer of one of the targeted groups got a copy of his letter she filed formal “Abuse of Power” charges against him, which went NOWHERE with the current criminal Department of Injustice in power. Elizabeth Warren changed her personnel records at Harvard Law school to indicate that she was 1/32nd “Native American” so she could claim minority status. When a genealogist traced her history and could not find any Native American linkage and Warren was questioned about it, her only response was that she remembered her Grandmother talking about her Great Grandmother talking about their Indian ancestors. She also publicly blasted Trump for making money during the housing market crash. No surprise there, but she did the same thing! These are just two of the people actively working to destroy America and the next 50 days are their last best chance to do that.

We are also seeing and hearing loud complaints about Trump “conflicts of interest” because some of his family is involved in his transition team and because of his worldwide business interest, and he has not even been sworn in yet .On a legal note the President and Vice President are legally exempt from conflict of interest regulations. If they were not they would not be able to function due to constantly being attacked with “conflict of interest” complaints. It is ethical and desirable for the President and Vice President to try and avoid what could appear to be conflict of interest activities, but they have much bigger things to be concerned about in America and the world today. Publicly making these accusations now is not in America’s best interest.

Obama just wasted many millions of dollars doing a world tour where he spoke publicly in every country he visited about all his accomplishments, and said he would not remain silent after leaving the Whitehouse when there is a threat to his accomplishments!  And we thought Jimmy Carter was a really bad past President!

About two days after the election it seemed to me like a majority of the people in America collectively “breathed a sign of relief” and said, “OK we can get on with our lives now”.  Maybe not……

Note to those of you who are still in “mourning” over the election results, I suggest you read this article http://www.onlymakessense.com/updated-november-28-the-collapse-of-obamacare-was-planned/,  especially the update I added at the bottom.

 

Updated December 1, 2016 – The Collapse of Obamacare Was Planned

I have heard people say that the collapse of Obamacare was pre-planned ever since its inception and implementation. However it was only in recent months that I became convinced that this is absolutely true! It is common knowledge that a long time dream of the liberal Left is to replace ALL healthcare in America with a single payer, Government run VA style healthcare program. When a “single payer healthcare system” is established there will NOT be any private healthcare providers or institutions left operating in America. That means that everybody in America will be forced into that single payer plan, including people currently enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, private insurance, and people who are currently uninsured.

However the Liberals knew that the increase in healthcare premiums and deductibles, for everybody every year since Obamacare was implemented, would not be enough to force everyone into a single payer healthcare system. So at the same time that Obamacare was implemented they implemented the second part of their carefully planned effort to take over healthcare in America. The second part of their plan is to increasingly deny healthcare to patients and increasingly reduce reimbursement to health care providers for services rendered (which will eventually force them out of business).

My conclusion that there is a twofold plan being executed to take over healthcare in America is based on my personal healthcare experiences in recent years, especially this year, plus conversations with friends and health care providers about their healthcare experiences since Obamacare was implemented, and now recent reports that Obamacare premiums will increase as much as 116% in some states January 1. Here are a few examples:

  • I was forced into Medicare when I turned 65 by my private healthcare coverage provider.
  • My Medicare premium, which is deducted from my Social Security check is being “means tested” What that means is that I am charged more than the basic monthly premium each month based on my and my wife’s annual income and it is going up another $40 each month on January 1 (our income has not increased?).
  • I chose to also pay for a second healthcare provider in addition to Medicare to assure I had full coverage. This second coverage provider has changed every year since I signed up for Medicare except this year. I am currently Medicare/United Health Care (UHC) with UHC being the secondary coverage and administrator for my coverage for both plans.
  • My wife’s health care provider has changed every year since Obamacare was implemented except one. She will be forced into Medicare with UHC as a secondary carrier when she turns 65 this month. She got a letter from Medicare yesterday informing her that both of our Medicare premiums will go up $12 a month this month because we file a joint tax return?
  • My wife and I lost our individual, $1,000, preventive care budget on January1 the year after Obamacare was implemented and our deductibles increased (we were not on Obamacare).
  • In September one of my healthcare providers tried to get approval for a critical back procedure for me over the phone. My insurance providers refused to approve it over the phone so I had to wait two weeks, in pain, for the procedure.
  • My health care coverage providers required me to have an extensive evaluation before they would approve any more treatments for my accelerating back problems. I say again, it was a required evaluation. Last week I got a letter from UHC informing me that they were declining to pay for the required extensive evaluation and I was responsible for the total cost of $912.
  • I was scheduled for a new MRI to evaluate my treatment options for my increasing levels of back and hip pain. My health care provider approved the procedure and it was scheduled. Two days after the MRI I got a letter from UHC informing me that the procedure was approved however “ This approval did not guarantee that the plan will pay for the service(s).”
  • Out of my total medical expenses this year (YTD June end) that were billed by my medical care providers (which have been considerable), my combined healthcare coverage paid a total reimbursement of 08% and I had to pay 01% including my up-front deductibles. Some charges were reimbursed at a slightly higher percent, others at a lower percent and some were reimbursed at “.00” %! Note, I just received my September YTD medical care summary and the total reimbursement for medical services billed dropped to .06% with my combined healthcare coverage providers only paying .05% with me being responsible for the other .01% including my upfront deductibles. There were more treatments and procedures reimbursed at .00% in the 3rd quarter than there was in the first six months of the year! Update, just got a notice that one of my healthcare providers filed an appeal and received additional reimbursement for some of my medical care but the total reimbursement is still significantly below what was billed. And as a condition of accepting health care coverage reimbursements the healthcare providers cannot require the patient to pay more than their plan’s deductibles, or other charges their healthcare provider dictates (like the $912 example noted above). They are also requiring so much “red tape” that many healthcare providers cannot comply. Even if you consider some healthcare providers may be overbilling for certain services, no healthcare provider can stay in business with this level of reimbursement.  Especially when you consider the patients who cannot pay their upfront deductibles (I have witnessed this repeatedly while sitting in waiting rooms).
    • > My primary care Doctor sold his practice to the local hospital chain and left the profession.
    • > My eye Doctor stopped treating patients with any combination of Medicare insurance coverage so I have to pay him cash for my annual checkups.

As noted above I am now absolutely certain that the liberal Left is executing their carefully calculated plan to destroy America’s Healthcare system and replace it with their “dream single payer healthcare system”! It is also undeniable that a single payer healthcare system is the centerpiece for Socialism!

Note, the liberal Left referred to here is the Obama Administration since day 1 of his presidency and the Democrats in Congress since January 20, 2006 (when they had a veto proof majority during the last two years of President (43) Bush’s administration.

This election is our last chance to save our Republic!  I am repeating what I said last week. If you voted for Obama and still support Hillary, please look at history! No form of Communism/Socialism (no matter what it was called) has been successful since mankind began recording our history!

UPDATE NOVEMBER 28, 2016:

As noted above I have been “means tested” since I was forced into the Medicare program when I turned 65 in 2012. My Medicare premium has increased several times over the years even though my income has not increased? According to the Social Security Administration (SSA) the $40 increase noted above on January 1, 2017 is the result of the IRS notifying the SSA that I had TAX FREE income from tax free municipal bonds (I originally invested in them while I was still working years ago). My wife was forced into Medicare when she turned 65 this month (November).

In addition to the two recent SSA letters noted above regarding increases in our Medicare premiums since my wife was forced into the program, on November 25 we both got identical 4 page (printed on both sides) letters from the SSA explaining our Medicare monthly premium status and how it is calculated. The calculation process is referred to as “IRMAA” (income-related monthly adjustment amount).

According to these letters, based on our current joint IRMAA calculations both of our premiums will increase an additional $112.70 on January 1, 2017!

On January 1, 2017 we will be paying more for Medicare than we were paying for a family healthcare plan, that we were very satisfied with prior to me being forced into Medicare in 2012. That coverage was available to us through my wife’s employer provided group coverage plan (she was and still is working). Unfortunately the plan requires people on the plan to sign up for Medicare as their primary coverage when they turn 65.

For those of you who are still “in mourning” over the election, do you really want our healthcare system to continue down this path of destruction!

UPDATED DECEMBER 1, 2016

On November 21 I had an appointment at the spine center for a reevaluation of my options for treatment for my back problems. I had to pay a $95 co-pay since I was seeing a specialist. Based on my latest MRI and recommendation by my orthopedic surgeons (I have permanent, inoperable back problems that are accelerating), I was scheduled for a pain block injection procedure this morning, December 1. Tuesday afternoon the center called to confirm my appointment and that I was fully aware of the pre-procedure prep requirements, “nothing by mouth after midnight, etc”. Yesterday at 3:45 the center called again and informed me that my insurance, UHC/Medicare had informed then that the procedure was not approved and that I needed to come in this morning for another evaluation and  to provide more personal information! The additional information that was needed was information I have provided literally dozens of times already this year to all my medical care providers, including the Spine center every time I have been there this year, including during my appointment on November 21 (so it was already in my current and past records).

I paid another co-pay, answered the same questions again, watched the Doctor’s assistant verify that the information was already in my files (with a somewhat perplexed look on her face) and  was rescheduled for another procedure on December 19th.  So I will spend the next 18 days with Tens unit pads on my hips and lower back for 12 hours a day!

I am beginning to think I am being personally targeted……

 

The Big Lie, About Obama’s Approval Rating

For some time now I have been hearing about Obama’s approval being at “record highs”. This morning I heard that it was at 58%. I find it odd that very few who report on Obama’s approval rating, including Fox, acknowledge who provided the report and its origin. or dares to publicly question it? This is just one more example of the media being PC. The price for the media to not be pc is simply too high. It is extremely rare for anyone to dare to publicly question anything about Obama personally! I have also noticed that on the rare occasion when people in media do question any Obama  actions they usually preface their comments, or end them with saying how much they admire Obama, or a similar statement. The price to do otherwise is apparently too high in American media.  A perfect example of this is Charles Krauthammer, a regular Fox News contributor. He is a Dr. (Psychiatrist) who has never been intimidated by anything, including being permanently paralyzed from the neck down when he was in medical school. He still graduated with his class with honors, married his long time sweetheart, has children,  drives his own specially built car which he operates entirely with only his fingers on his right hand, has a very accomplished  career as a columnist  and Fox News contributor, and writes bestselling books. In short he is a very successful person and the consummate professional. During Obama’s first term he said that in his professional opinion Obama was a “pathological narcissist”. A few days later he made the public observation that he would not be making a public analysis of anyone again. The firestorm he must have endured to be “cowed” to this point is inconceivable! Note, I actually researched the term “pathological narcissists” and it seemed to me that it was a “text book” diagnosis for Obama.

The Fox report on Obama’s approval ratings this morning was in  the context that he was the first President in history to be the ”star”  in a Presidential campaign when he was not the candidate. On a side note they did report that Obama mentioned himself 207 times in recent campaign speeches including saying that if Trump is elected the Obama legacy will be destroyed!

Anyone who has been interested in history and followed current events at any level over the last few decades, or even in recent years has to be amazed at how biased (corrupt) and arrogant the Main Stream Media (MSM) has become in their reporting and opinion of the “average citizen” in America since Obama became a presidential candidate. The Obama approval rating and how the MSM reports on it, and Obama personally are glaring examples of how Politically Correct (P.C). America has become.

When anyone who supports Hillary is asked a simple question,, “can you name one thing Hillary accomplished as Secretary of State” they cannot  answer the question. The same thing happens when you change it to “her 30 years in public service”. The facts are that she did accomplish a lot, but none of it was good! I believe that history will show that Obama’s record will be SIGNIFICANTLY worse than Hillary’s (unless she is elected President) because he had unlimited opportunity to build a public record during his two terms as President of the United States of America. Unfortunately getting elected President, and reelected, was his only “positive” accomplishment (the first person of color to be elected to be President of the United States of America).

I am absolutely certain that history will show that Obama was the WORSE President in American history. He will leave America in such a weak position in every way that it is doubtful that we can recover! Yet he and his rabid sycophant supporters continue to “scream” about his extraordinary accomplishments? It is still astonishing to me that so many people not only believe this but angrily argue that this is true?  We have clearly reached the epitome in PC politics in America.

I first became aware of how being PC was becoming more noticeable in American politics when I got more involved in politics during the Jimmy Carter years. I noticed that America was becoming more polarized politically and I am sorry to say less patriotic. I was happy and proud to see that this changed to a noticeable positive degree during the Regan years with more Americans being less political and more focused on what was good for America. Political polarization came back with a vengeance during the Clinton Presidency but largely disappeared during President (43) Bush’s presidency when Americans put America first and rallied around the president after 911. However this welcome reduction in being PC and the surge in patriotism only lasted into the first part of President Bush’s second term. Then PC politics began to “rear its ugly head” again, exploded during Obama’s Presidential campaign and went on steroids during his time in the Oval Office. As I studied and wrote about the Obama Administration’s obsession with PC politics it became clear that throughout history there has been a direct correlation between a rise in PC politics and a direct decline in Patriotism.  This is very obvious anytime you are exposed to the MSM in America today.

Obama’s legacy in history will be that his Administration was so obsessed with being PC that his Presidency was an absolute failure in every way. For some time now I have been convinced that the Obama Administration will leave America in such a weak position in every way that it is doubtful that we can recover. I am so convinced of this that I began to research, document and write detailed articles about it earlier this year.in an effort to educate people about what is really happening in America. This will be my 45th article to date and hopefully not my last (depending on the current election results).

I normally do not post articles that have what could be too may distracting links. Consequently I am posting only links to two of my 44 recent articles at the bottom of this article in an effort to make my case that the Obama Administration has been an absolute failure in every way. Equally disappointing is that the Obama Administration and their sycophant supporters, including the MSM literally scream about all the great things this administration has accomplished (ABSOLUTE LIES). One obvious example of the ridiculous lies is, “we are reducing the deficit at the fasted rate in history”! Really!!!???  And I have not seen anyone in the media, except some people on Fox News, call the Obama Administration out on this ridiculous lie?

The first article I linked below is about our national debt exceeding our Gross Domestic Product.(it is not as complicated as it seems. Please read the article). To put this in perspective the only time in history this has happened in America was late in WWII and we lived in an entirely different time then patriotically and politically. Throughout history it has been extremely rare for a country to survive a national debt crisis like this. The Liberals love to “blame it on Bush” and now “blame it on Republicans”: but the facts prove otherwise.

The second article linked  below is about the real unemployment rate in America. The Obama Administration loudly brags about how many jobs it has created and that they have brought unemployment down to 4.9%. Really!!?? The facts prove it is the opposite!

Counting this one, there are now 45 articles posted on my website and on two other public forums that I write for but I think these two adequately explain why America cannot survive a Hillary Presidency.

Obamacare was Designed to Collapse so it Could be Replaced with Government Run Healthcare for Everyone

I have heard people say that the collapse of Obamacare was pre-planned ever since its inception and implementation. However it was only in recent months that I became convinced that this is absolutely true! It is common knowledge that a long time dream of the liberal Left is to replace ALL healthcare in America with a single payer, Government run VA style healthcare program. When a “single payer healthcare system” is established there will NOT be any private healthcare providers or institutions left operating in America. That means that everybody in America will be forced into that single payer plan, including people currently enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, private insurance, and people who are currently uninsured.

However the Liberals knew that the increase in healthcare premiums and deductibles, for everybody every year since Obamacare was implemented, would not be enough to force everyone into a single payer healthcare system. So at the same time that Obamacare was implemented they implemented the second part of their carefully planned effort to take over healthcare in America. The second part of their plan is to increasingly deny healthcare to patients and increasingly reduce reimbursement to health care providers for services rendered (which will eventually force them out of business).

My conclusion that there is a twofold plan being executed to take over healthcare in America is based on my personal healthcare experiences in recent years, especially this year, plus conversations with friends and health care providers about their healthcare experiences since Obamacare was implemented, and now recent reports that Obamacare premiums will increase as much as 116% in some states January 1. Here are a few examples:

  • I was forced into Medicare when I turned 65 by my private healthcare coverage provider.
  • My Medicare premium, which is deducted from my Social Security check is being “means tested” What that means is that I am charged more than the basic monthly premium each month based on my and my wife’s annual income and it is going up another $40 each month on January 1.
  • I chose to also pay for a second healthcare provider in addition to Medicare to assure I had full coverage. This second coverage provider has changed every year since I signed up for Medicare except this year. I am currently Medicare/United Health Care (UHC) with UHC being the secondary coverage and administrator for my coverage for both plans.
  • My wife’s health care provider has changed every year since Obamacare was implemented except one. She will be forced into Medicare with UHC as a secondary carrier when she turns 65 this month. She got a letter from Medicare yesterday informing her that both of our Medicare premiums will go up $12 a month this month because we file a joint tax return?
  • My wife and I lost our individual, $1,000, preventive care budget on January 1 the year after Obamacare was implemented and our deductibles increased (we were not on Obamacare).
  • In September one of my healthcare providers tried to get approval for a critical back procedure for me over the phone. My insurance providers refused to approve it over the phone so I had to wait two weeks, in pain, for the procedure.
  • My health care coverage providers required me to have an extensive evaluation before they would approve any more treatments for my accelerating back problems. I say again, it was a required evaluation. Last week I got a letter from UHC informing me that they were declining to pay for the required extensive evaluation and I was responsible for the total cost of $912.
  • I was scheduled for a new MRI to evaluate my treatment options for my increasing levels of back and hip pain. My health care provider approved the procedure and it was scheduled. Two days after the MRI I got a letter from UHC informing me that the procedure was approved however “ This approval did not guarantee that the plan will pay for the service(s).”
  • Out of my total medical expenses this year (YTD June end) that were billed by my medical care providers (which have been considerable), my combined healthcare coverage paid a total reimbursement of 08% and I had to pay 01% including my up-front deductibles. Some charges were reimbursed at a slightly higher percent, others at a lower percent and some were reimbursed at “.00” %! Note, I just received my September YTD medical care summary and the total reimbursement for medical services billed dropped to .06% with my combined healthcare coverage providers only paying .05% with me being responsible for the other .01% including my upfront deductibles. There were more treatments and procedures reimbursed at .00% in the 3rd quarter than there was in the first six months of the year!  And as a condition of accepting health care coverage reimbursements the healthcare providers cannot require the patient to pay more than their plan’s deductibles, or other charges their healthcare provider dictates (like the $912 example noted above). They are also requiring so much “red tape” that many healthcare providers cannot comply. Even if you consider some healthcare providers may be overbilling for certain services, no healthcare provider can stay in business with this level of reimbursement.  Especially when you consider the patients who cannot pay their upfront deductibles (I have witnessed this repeatedly while sitting in waiting rooms).
    • > My primary care Doctor sold his practice to the local hospital chain and left the profession.
    • > My eye Doctor stopped treating patients with any combination of Medicare insurance coverage so I have to pay him cash for my annual checkups.

As noted above I am now absolutely certain that the liberal Left is executing their carefully calculated plan to destroy America’s Healthcare system and replace it with their “dream single payer healthcare system”! It is also undeniable that a single payer healthcare system is the centerpiece for Socialism!

Note, the liberal Left referred to here is the Obama Administration since day 1 of his presidency and the Democrats in Congress since January 20, 2006 (when they had a veto proof majority during the last two years of President (43) Bush’s administration.

This election is our last chance to save our Republic!  I am repeating what I said last week. If you voted for Obama and still support Hillary, please look at history! No form of Communism/Socialism (no matter what it was called) has been successful since mankind began recording our history!
