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.

 

 

Part Two: Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Reached Epidemic Proportions!

The Anti Trump and America haters, including the Main Stream Media have become completely “unhinged”!

“Unhinged” defined by Merriam Webster:  upsetungluedespecially :  mentally deranged

Last week I wrote about how it is impossible to turn on the “news” or log into the internet without constantly seeing examples of “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (TDS). At that time I did not think it was possible for TDS to get any worse, but this week it has continued to rise to disgusting new levels! The MSM has moved even further away from “inaccurate reporting” to “publishing openly dishonest information”.

Here are a few new disgusting examples:

  • As Harvey moved onto land the MSM obsessed with statements like, “Trump is facing his first disaster that is not of his own making”. And, then of course the inevitable “blame it own Bush” and the grossly inaccurate discussions of how badly the Bush Administration mishandled Katrina. The facts are that it was NOT the Bush Administration that was to blame for the level of disaster that the victims of Katrina experienced. Yes, the Bush Administration could have done some things better, but the majority of the blame for the magnitude of Katrina’s disaster falls squarely on the shoulders of the Governor of Louisiana at the time, Kathleen Blanco and the Mayor of New Orleans at the time Ray Nagin. The Governor refused the Bush Administration’s initial offer of Federal assistance and the Mayor (and city council) did nothing to minimize the destruction and loss of life that resulted from the delay in accepting Federal assistance. As usual the MSM still refuses to acknowledge the incompetence and gross negligence exhibited by the governor and mayor and is still focusing on President Bush’s low level fly over to see the destruction himself without landing. Landing would have interfered with other air traffic that was delivering desperately needed supplies and support personnel and flying refugees out. On an added note Ray Nagin was re-elected and was subsequently charged (surprisingly by the Obama/Holder Department of Injustice) with 20 counts of corruption. He was convicted on all 20 counts and is now serving 10 years in a Federal prison.
  • President Trump is being vilified for pardoning Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Arpaio is 85 years old and has been in public service his entire adult life. He was charged with refusing to obey a judge’s order by the corrupt Obama/Holder Department of Injustice. Federal prosecutors spent years trying to convict the Sheriff before they finally got a conviction in a non- jury trial. If he had been tried in a jury trial it is unlikely that he would have been convicted, and his conviction would most likely have been overturned on appeal. In spite of the facts the MSM chooses to see the pardon as racism. For example an Arizona Newspaper Editorial said, “Joe Arpaio Pardon Shows Institutional Racism Is Trump’s Goal”! As usual the MSM is focusing on this one pardon while totally ignoring the facts that Obama pardoned more hardened criminals than all modern day presidents combined (including Bill Clinton), and traded five terrorist from Gitmo for a known traitor, Bo Bergdahl.
  • The Berkeley police stood down again and allowed Antifa thugs to physically attack a small group of people trying to participate in a peaceful free speech rally. The police chief issued a statement that, “the police were ordered to stand down after counter protesters breached police lines to avoid escalating the violence”. REALLY!!!!!! It still amazes me that the Trump haters and the MSM still refuse to acknowledge that Antifa, BLM and several other destructive far left groups are responsible for any of the daily violence we are seeing in America now!
  • With everything that is happening in America and the world (especially North Korea) the MSM spent part of two days criticizing the First Lady for wearing heels as she boarded the plane this week to accompany the President on his first trip to Texas.

On a positive note I believe we are seeing the greatest response to a major disaster in our history on every level, federal, state, local and thousands of volunteers. But I have not heard a single anti Trump, America hater or member of the MSM acknowledge that?

The Main Stream Media, Everyone Else on the Left and the RINO Republicans Must be Living in a Parallel Universe?

As I watch the Main Stream Media (MSM) coverage of the events that happened last weekend in Charlottesville I am dumbfounded! The MSM, Democrats, RINO Republicans and everyone else that hates President Trump are all screaming that it was a “white extremist” event and somehow President Trump is to blame for it? They are also screaming that President Trump and his racist supporters are responsible for the rampart racism in America? The MSM and all the other Trump haters went even crazier when President Trump stated that there were bad people on both sides in Charlottesville!

If you watch any video or photos of the violence in Charlottesville you will clearly see that Antifa and BLM organized and paid protesters incited the violence, yet no one in the MSM or any of the Trump haters will acknowledge that.

The Charlottesville rally was a legal organized event to protest the removal of a Civil war statue. They had a rally permit, which they had to go to court to get. It was originally referred to as a “white lives matter” rally but immediately began to be called a white supremacist or extremist rally by the MSM. The protesters did not have a permit but were allowed to congregate and attack the people in the legal rally with clubs, urine, feces and chemical filled balloons, bottles and pepper spray, while the police initially stood by and let it happen. I saw one photo of a man using an aerosol spray can and cigarette lighter to create an improvised flame thrower to try and burn rally participants. When a “reporter”(?) asked him about it he claimed that he found the can on the ground and was just using it to defend himself, and that is what the “reporter”(?) published!

Antifa and BLM have been carrying out this kind of organized and paid for violence since their inception when Obama was President, with the MSM completely ignoring it and very few people being arrested and prosecuted. When the Mayor of Portland demanded to know why the Portland police handled a protest like they did in June the Portland Police Chief responded by posting an open letter to the Mayor detailing how they and a small legal rally were attacked by Antifa and BLM protesters, including using sling shots to launch feces, urine and chemical filled balloons and poison rodent bombs into their ranks plus using pepper spray, throwing water bottles and bricks and using clubs. Antifa and BLM violent protesters obviously come to protest events well prepared to be violent.  Many of them wear all black clothes, mask and protective gear like motorcycle helmets.

The police could have prevented the violence in Charlottesville, or at least reduced it to some degree if they had tried to keep the two groups apart and forced the violent protesters to disperse. But, somehow, according to the MSM and all the Trump haters it is still President Trump and his racist supporters who are responsible for all the violence.

Every day this week MSM outlets have been giving air time to anyone who will verbally attack President Trump (and his alleged racist white supporters). This included the cofounder of the national BLM organization who said that “white speech” is hate speech and therefore is not protected by the Constitution. But blocking freeways and chanting about killing police officers is OK?

Now even some FOX NEWS hosts are angrily pilling on!  Without Eric Bolling “The Specialist” at 5:00 is the latest “cannot watch” FOX show!

Clearly some people are living in a parallel universe?

 

Attorney General Sessions is Bringing Back the “Department of Justice”!

Last year I wrote and published several detailed articles about the open corruption, racism and treason happening in Obama’s “Department of Injustice”.  Here is a link to one of them: http://www.onlymakessense.com/the-stench-coming-out-of-the-department-of-injustice-is-unbearable/

The good news is that AG Sessions and his staff are steadily working to turn the Department back into America’s DOJ for the first time in 24 years (yes, since Bill Clinton was President)!

AG Sessions appeared to be slow doing what needed to be done but recently I am seeing indications that he is becoming the “energizer bunny” of AG’s.

  • He just announced a serious investigation into leakers who break the law, regardless of who they are, including members of Congress and the press! At that press conference he also announced that four people have already been charged.
  • He announced that Sanctuary Cities would not receive certain future Federal funds if they remained Sanctuary Cities. The threat by people like Rahm Emanual to sue the DOJ regarding this new policy did not deter AG Session’s assertion that he would enforce the decision to withhold these funds.
  • The DOJ just released hundreds of pages of DOJ and FBI documents related to the Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting. The DOJ and FBI under Obama denied the existence of any documents about this meeting. One of the many things revealed in the documents is that Lynch used a secret e-mail alias when she was communicating with various Department and Agency people about her meeting with Clinton.
  • The DOJ just opened an investigation into a reverse discrimination claim filed against a number of “Ivy league” colleges by Asian students who were highly qualified but denied admission to these colleges. The complaint was filed in 2015 but the Obama “Department of Injustice” ignored it.
  • AG Sessions announced that the DOJ is investigating the illegal $6 billion slush fund the Obama “Department of Injustice” created to fund extreme Left Wing groups and their Un-American activities. This money should have gone into Government bank accounts (back to the American taxpayers)!
  • On one of the Sunday news shows Assistant AG Rosenstein said that all the “reporting” about the expansion of the special prosecutor investigation into the alleged Russia involvement in our 2016 elections was not true (fake news).  He also said that any proposed expansion of the investigation into other areas would require specific approval from his office in advance.

Let’s have a little faith that this is the beginning of the “proverbial snowball rolling down a mountain”. Hello to the Clintons, their staff and practically everyone in the Obama Administration. Have you “lawyered up” yet?

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.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

Are We Winning the War On Our Constitution? I think We Are Now!

RINO Republicans, Democrats and the Main Stream Media Continue to Openly Work at Destroying our Constitutional Republic Form of Government!

I first became aware of the organized efforts to destroy America about ten years ago.   Glen Beck was on FOX NEWS at 5 p.m. every day and did a series of shows with various guests who talked about the changing demographics in America. During this series of shows Glen came to the conclusion that America was almost at the “breaking point” based on these changing demographics and that we were one election away from reaching a point where our Constitutional Republic form of government could not survive. He was right about the changing demographics, but was wrong about us being one election away from America being “fundamentally changed”.

Unfortunately the RINO Republicans, Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) still believe so strongly that the changing demographics are in their favor that they continue to openly work at destroying the Trump Administration and “fundamentally changing” America. Based on everything I see happening now they are actually ramping up their efforts to destroy our Constitution. It is also obvious that they are so certain that their “side “ will win their war on our Constitution that they do not appear to have any concerns about any possible retribution resulting from their Un-American activities. We have judges ignoring the Constitution (and their oath of office) and legislating from the bench, some Liberal governors and mayors publicly defying laws and the Trump Administration by providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants and refusing to acknowledge the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, Rino Republicans who are joining the Democrats in their efforts to shut down America at any cost and the MSM “piling on” with what can only be described as frantic “TDS” (Trump Derangement Syndrome).

Last week I wrote about my increasing belief that what the Rino Republicans, Democrats and MSM are doing will actually benefit Conservatives in the 2018 and 2020 elections on a state and national level. Every time I log into the internet or turn on the TV I become more convinced that this is true and I wonder how these America haters do not see the increasing level of anger they are generating against them in “middle America”!

On a positive note, we are starting to see the benefits of having a “Department of Justice” again. Tim Kaine’s son is facing criminal charges for his participation in a violent anti-Trump protest in Minnesota, there were multiple arrests in Washington State this past weekend when masked protesters tried to violently disrupt a legal pro Trump rally, a 25 year old woman (who was a Sanders supporter and anti-Trump on social media) was just arrested for leaking a secret NSA report to the media and more states are passing laws increasing the criminal penalties for illegal protest, violently disrupting legal rallies and illegally blocking traffic. America haters should take note that during the Trump Administration there are going to be negative consequences for your actions!

As I wrote last week, it is not going to be easy and it is not going to happen quickly but I do believe that those of us that still believe in the Constitution will win what has become an open “battle for America”, if we continue to stand against the America haters like we did in November 2016!  America became the greatest nation on earth because of what our Founding Fathers gave us, the Constitution. Especially the right to free speech, the right to own guns, and good old American Capitalism!

Have Washington D.C. and the Main Stream Media Reached a “Point of NO Return”?

Every day I become more horrified and furious as I watch Democrats and RINO Republicans literally flaunt the fact that honesty, ethics, and patriotism DO NOT HAVE A PLACE IN THEIR WORLD! The only thing that matters to them is “self-gratification”. They literally stumble over each other to get in front of TV cameras or microphones and will say anything to get attention. Their only objective is to be re-elected, or if they are not in elected positions they are obsessed with being a part of what they believe is the “Washington Elite”. And the Main Stream Media (MSM) has fully signed on to their agenda (agenda: an underlying often ideological plan or program)!

With the MSM’s eager assistance, the open dishonesty in politics has reached a level that is so bad that I have to turn off the TV on a periodic basis. Even FOX NEWS now has so many loud Liberals and RINO’s on their programs that I have to turn it off periodically.  I do want FOX to give people who represent both sides of any issue, an opportunity to explain their view but I also want blatant lies to be called out and not allowed to go unquestioned, which gives the lies some form of credibility.

I even have to drop off the internet on a regular basis due to the overwhelming volume of obviously dishonest “articles” that come up on my home page. I use yahoo as my home page because I want to see what everyone on both sides of any issue have to say, but recently I noticed that none of the dozens of “articles” that were visible at any given time were conservative or honest.

I have also noticed that due to the growth of the internet and cable TV any organization, group of people, or individual can find a way to make their views public. Now publications like “VOX”, “Entertainment” and even “Esquire” are publishing “articles” with hard left views. In addition to being openly dishonest, some of these “articles” are poorly written.

Here are a few examples of the dishonesty and hysteria I saw on various media outlets over the last few days:

The alleged Comey memo was read to a “New York Times” reporter over the phone by an “unidentified source” and instantly became a major “news article” that consumed everyone’s news feed!

A CNN host shouted down a guest when he pointed out that “unidentified sources” were being quoted too often in the MSM. She actually yelled at him for, “Daring to question CNN’s honest reporting”!

RINO McCain has been going on as many talk shows as he could and referring to President Trump as “Trump”, with an obvious disdainful tone in his voice, while saying Trump’s actions are worse than “Watergate”.  What makes RINO McCain’s comments even worse is that in the past he referred to Obama as President Obama and publicly supported whatever Obama wanted, including saying that the then President Obama deserved to have his appointments approved on a timely basis.

Megan McCain emotionally questioned General McMaster’s integrity regarding his statements that the “Washington Post” article was not correct. She did this after saying how much she respected General McMaster before he made that public statement? On the same “Outnumbered” program Steve Hays openly questioned General McMaster’s public statement from the night before, and his repeat of the statement at the just completed press conference because General McMaster appeared to have changed A WORD the second time he publicly made the statement. Hays then came to the conclusion that this somehow made General McMaster’s statement untrue and the General dishonest?  After Hays’ comments on air John Roberts, FOX NEWS’ White House Chief Correspondent called into the show and agreed with Hayes!

Both times General McMaster stepped up to the microphones to issue the statement that the “article” was not true, and then walked away from the microphones the press screamed questions at his back! Like anyone else who has been following the media reports on this I saw General McMaster’s public statements when he made them and repeated replays of it, and I did not have any questions regarding the statement or see any reason for the General to attempt to engage in any debate with the Media?

Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the architects of “Obamacare” and a hard core Liberal, was one of the guests on the new FOX show “The Specialist”. During the show he loudly and repeatedly said that nothing was wrong with “Obamacare”, it was working exactly as it was intended to work and that it had actually “driven the cost of healthcare in America down”. When Eric Bolling questioned Emanuel about that and read off a list of the huge premium increases people insured under “Obamacare” are experiencing and the insurance providers that are pulling out of the program at year end, Emanuel somewhat angrily informed Bolling that he was not referring to premiums, he was referring to the actual cost of healthcare! That is an ABSOLUTE LIE and a stupid one!  Note to Emanuel: Never play poker for actual money!

Democrats, RINO’s and the MSM loudly circulated a “report” that the new Deputy Attorney General, Rosenstein was furious and threatening to resign because, “Trump publicly blamed him for Comey’s firing”. The lie was spreading so fast that Rosenstein had to make a public statement that it was a lie.

Democrats, RINO’s and the MSM loudly circulated a “report” that the FBI had requested more funds to continue the “Russia investigation”. The acting FBI Director was asked about this during his Senate committee testimony. He stated under oath that this was absolutely NOT TRUE. He went on to say that the FBI had all the funding and staff it needed to take the investigation wherever it needed to go.

As indicated by these examples the one thing the Democrats, RINO’s and MSM all have in common is a total disdain for the TRUTH. They all cite “unidentified sources” on a regular basis with it obvious that they did not make any effort to verify the accuracy of the information the “unidentified sources” gave them.

What can do we about this shocking collusion between the Democrats, RINO’s and the MSM?

Like we did in November 2016, we must stand up and make our voices heard. Insist on term limits and refuse to support politicians, organizations or media outlets that are dishonest and Un-American. Let President Trump know we support his Administration ANY WAY HE NEEDS US TO!

I have written a number of detailed articles about everything I have touched on here and a variety of other similar topics. You can find them all here on this website.

 

Washington is Rotten to Core! Shut it DOWN October 1!

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

It is obvious that the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) are already painting a bright target on the chest and back of every Republican that is up for re-election in the mid-term elections in 2018.  What the President and Republicans do, or do not do between now and November 2018, will not change that.

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

Elected members of Congress alone are not the entire “Washington problem”. Many people appointed to positions of power are also part of the “Washington problem”. Federal Judges who “legislate from the bench” and people like Jim Comey who use their position to assure that they continue to be an integral part of what they see as the “Washington Elite”. The Democrat’s comments and Comey’s testimony during the Congressional hearings on Wednesday, May 3rd were a perfect example of what is happening in Washington now. I watched part of the hearing while eating lunch and got so upset that I had to turn the TV off! One example of how ridiculous some of the things Comey said was his explanation of why Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Wiener were not prosecuted for mishandling classified documents. Comey said that the FBI had no way of knowing if Weiner read any of the classified documents Huma sent to the unsecured computer that she shared with Weiner. It was his (Comey’s) understanding that all Weiner did regarding the shared classified documents was “to print them for Huma”. Yes, Comey actually said that, as absurd as it was. He did the same regarding questions about Hillary and the rest of her staff’s mishandling of classified documents. He said that he did not believe the FBI could prove “intent” in the mishandling of classified documents!  REALLY!!! If Comey had even an ounce of integrity in his body he would have resigned and held a public press conference explaining why he resigned when he was ordered by Obama, through Loretta Lynch, to NOT attempt to build a prosecutable case against Hillary or any of her staff. UPDATE: JIM COMEY, FIRED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP, MAY 9, 2017. DRAINING THE SWAMP!

Two more perfect examples of the “Washington problem” are Tim Kaine and Bernie Sanders. I have written about the actions of these two before but it is important to keep people aware of the fact that they, and other people like them, are openly inciting violent anarchy in America! Senator, and VP candidate Tim Kaine recently stood before TV cameras and said, “Democrats must be willing to fight Republicans in the streets”.  Senator and recent Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders just completed a 10 day speaking tour around America calling for a “revolution”. This from a 75 year old declared Socialist who has never had a job in the private sector except for being a “community organizer”. He has spent almost all of his adult life in politics on a local and national level, and gotten very rich along the way!  I have a simple question for Kaine, Sanders, and all their supporters. Do you really want to start a revolution in America and “fight Republicans in the street”? I, and I am sure millions of other Americans like me, really do not think that you do!

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

Why did I say in the title of this article, “SHUT IT DOWN October 1”?  Because I am now convinced that shutting the Federal Government down is the only way to begin to fix it (other than an actual revolution).

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

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

President Trump, please do not agree to anything Congress proposes that does not meet the mandate you were sent to Washington to do. Shut the Federal Government down October 1, 2017 and keep it shut down as long as necessary to force needed changes (no more Federal budget “continuing resolutions”). Use your “phone and pen” to conduct Washington’s business until you are convinced that Congress may be willing to actually do what it is supposed to do. Direct your Cabinet Secretaries to cut their departments like you proposed for them to do, not what Congress wants. Stop trying to “fix” Obamacare. Let it collapse and then replace it. INSIST on a Constitutional Amendment establishing TERM LIMITS for all members of the U.S. Congress and Senate! And please keep tweeting regardless of who suggest that you stop. You are communicating directly with Americans and not allowing the corrupt, deranged Main Stream Media to “filter” what you say! I am absolutely convinced that there are enough people in America now who have “had enough of the Washington problem” and will fully support you ANY WAY THAT IS NEEDED to fix the “Washington problem”.

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

How Can Trump “Drain the Swamp” When He Cannot Say “Your Fired” to Anyone in Washington? Here is How!

There are actually two distinct groups of people in Washington who cannot be fired, which is practically everyone there. The first group is our elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate. They can only be “fired” (in an election) by the people they are supposed to be representing, which rarely happens because most of the people in Congress have gotten really good at staying in office. The second group of people who cannot be fired is Federal Government employees. Theoretically they can be fired but it almost never happens because they are protected by the most powerful, and corrupt work place rules governing employee discipline imaginable. Federal Government department and agency heads, managers, and supervisors DO NOT have the authority to discipline, much less suspend or fire subordinates. If someone in a position of authority in our Federal Government wants to discipline, suspend or fire a subordinate they must refer the employee to a committee of their peers to investigate the “alleged” misconduct and make recommendations for actions that may be taken against the employee. The committee’s review and recommended actions are then forwarded to a mediator for a final decision on recommended disciplinary action. There are three problems with this process. First, it takes too long for the process to be completed. Second, during this long drawn out process the person making the “allegations” against the employee and requesting disciplinary action is almost always subjected to various forms of workplace harassment and “work slowdowns” by other Federal Employees who want to prevent any future employee referral’s for disciplinary action.  And third, the process rarely results in any recommendations for discipline of any sort because the process is corrupted at every level. For instance at least some of the people on the review committee will be people who are determined to maintain the status quo regarding Federal Government employee “job security”. Consequently Federal Government employees are rarely referred to a committee for disciplinary action.

Some time ago I actually watched the Head of the VA testifying before a Congressional committee regarding his total lack of authority to discipline, suspend or fire anyone in the VA. It was actually infuriating to watch politicians on both sides of the aisle putting on a loud show of indignation as they pretended they did not know that was the situation and insisting that they would do something to change the “Washington” work place rules responsible for this situation. The truth is that Congress is actually responsible for such ridiculous work place rules being a fixed part of the Washington “culture” so I will really be surprised if anything about this situation changes in the near future, but we did get Trump elected to the Presidency, so there is hope.

So here is how President Trump can “drain the swamp”.

> First he can sign executive orders repealing Obama’s executive orders that empowered Federal agencies to go on a new rule making rampage of their own.

> Second he can “request” the resignation of existing Federal department and agency heads throughout the Federal Government. Some will resist but some will comply allowing him to replace them with better business people.

> Third he can appoint strong, ethical, constitutionalist to head all Federal Government departments and agencies with a mandate to “root out corruption” with referrals to the FBI for investigation and the DOJ for prosecution for criminal action. Note, this will be the first time in approximately 24 years that we will actually have a Department of Justice! Bill Clinton turned it into a “Department of Injustice” so he could use it to carry out his personal agenda items. President Bush could not fix it because 911 happened seven months and 21 days after he was sworn in. As a result the efforts to fight terror while rebuilding our intelligence service and national defense capabilities consumed all of Washington’s time and efforts throughout most of his two terms as President. And then Obama immediately elevated it to a “Department of Injustice” on steroids with every other Federal department and agency immediately following suit. As soon as President Trump appoints a new Attorney General and  Federal Government employees start getting prosecuted for criminal behavior, I feel certain that we will start to see some people in Federal government jobs begin to “clean up their act and others voluntarily resigning.

> Fourth, President Trump can begin to work with Congress on a serious Federal Government reorganization plan beginning with the elimination of the Department of Education.

Why do I think these four steps will begin to “drain the swamp” and continue at an accelerating rate? Because President Trump is a strong negotiator and the “mood” of the American electorate, which was initially visible in the 2014 mid-term elections and then made abundantly clear on November 8, 2016 sent a clear message to Congress that they want the “swamp drained” now!

 

 

 

Obamacare, Just One of Many Reasons Why this Election is Critical

As we get closer to the end of this election more information about the Left’s lies and corruption becomes public every day. These reports include details about rampant voter fraud and intimidation in many areas of the country with the Department of Injustice and Federal Election Commission ignoring the fraud, and actually facilitating it in some instances. Plus there is an endless stream of reports about incompetence, fraud and mismanagement throughout the government including the corruption in the FBI in its deliberate mishandling of Emailgate. With all that is happening and being reported by FOX and other select media, and then being shared on Face Book and twitter, it seems like Obamacare problems and issues are somewhat old news. However, with all that just became public about Obamacare it is obvious that this election will determine if Obamacare is replaced with something better or something worse. “Something worse” is a single payer system, which is government run healthcare like the VA for everyone!

The arrogant indifference to the truth and the rule of law displayed by the Obama Administration and the Democrats in Congress regarding the “Affordable Care Act” inception, approval, implementation and administration has been inconceivable from the beginning. To use an old quote, you would “have to be living under a rock” to have missed hearing the lies and insults to the “average American” made by Obama, Democrats and people like Johnathan Gruber. You would also have to be “living under a rock” to NOT be aware of the stream of illegal Executive Orders that Obama issued during the implementation of Obamacare. Some of the most notable lies/insults were:

  • We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.
  • If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.
  • If you like your health care plan you can keep you health care plan.
  • We are going to bend the cost of health care curve down.
  • Jonathan Gruber said at a conference about Obamacare, “the law was written to hide crucial details from an American public too dumb to understand.…..” (Gruber is the MIT professor who was involved in drafting the original Obamacare plan).

Of course none of these lies, or any of the other lies told over the years are even remotely true. What I and my wife have experienced since the implementation of Obamacare (and we are not even on Obamacare) is the absolute opposite of what was promised, and our experience has been mild compared to what many Americans have experienced. Our Doctor sold his private practice to the local hospital chain and left the profession, we lost our $1,000 annual preventative care allowance, our deductibles have increased, I have had to wait for approvals for certain treatments, it is harder to get appointments with our new primary care Doctor, our premiums have increased, we have been forced to change carriers every year except this year and our Eye Doctor stopped accepting our current coverage so I have to pay him in cash for my annual checkups (I am over 65  so I am Medicare/United Health Care). Regarding my Medicare coverage, my private medical care coverage provider required me to change to it as my primary coverage when I turned 65. My monthly premium for Medicare has been “means tested” (based on our joint annual income) since I signed up for the plan. What that means is that my monthly Medicare premium, which is deducted from my Social Security check, is $66 more than the normal base cost, and it will increase another $40 on January 1. My wife will be forced into the same situation when she turns 65 next Month.

Regarding premium increases, the Obama Administration now acknowledges that in January there will be a “double digit increase” in monthly premiums. When pressed by some members of the media, the Administration said the increases would “average 25 percent”. According to some reports I saw yesterday and this morning, in some states it will be well over 100 per cent, which basically makes it unaffordable for people and families who are not eligible for Government assistance with their premiums.

In addition to the illegal Executive Orders issued by Obama during the implementation of Obamacare let’s not forget the billions of dollars wasted on the development of state exchanges intended to manage Obamacare in each state, which have already failed or are now failing.

Regarding Insurance carriers who are participating in Obamacare and offering coverage in some states as a secondary partner with Medicare, the numbers are steadily declining and choices are constantly changing. As noted above, the insurance carrier that offered coverage for me as a partner with Medicare has changed every year since Obamacare was implemented except this year. This is another thing the Obama Administration continues to lie about.  The Obama Administration recently bragged about thirteen new insurance providers joining Obamacare in January in various states, but did not mention the 83 carriers that are dropping out of the program on January 1.In some states that will leave only one insurance provider in the program.

And one more new lie is that over 20 million people who did not have insurance before Obamacare was implemented now have insurance coverage. The truth is that the number is actually only 13 million and the majority of those are on Medicaid, which is totally Government (tax payer) funded, and many medical care providers will not accept patients who are covered by Medicaid.

And last but not least, does anyone really know how many people are forced to work part time because their employer will not provide health care coverage or cannot afford to provide it?  Or how many people refuse to work overtime or earn extra income because if they do they will lose their Obamacare subsidy? Obamacare is not only destroying our healthcare system it is hurting our economy badly and limiting some working people’s professional growth!

As I have written in past articles, the choice is clear in this election! Like him or not Trump is clearly the only choice if we want to save our Republic. Note to those of you who are supporting Hillary, look at history. No form of “Communism/Socialism” has been successful since the beginning of recorded history….

p.s. The new Democratic talking point is, “The current Obamacare problems are the Republicans fault because they blocked proposed plan fixes” ! Really?
