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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We can defeat the “Obamaites” if we preserver!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

The Democrats are Eating Their Own!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

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

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

Here are a few examples of the “Backfiring”:

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

 

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

President Trump is Decisively Dealing With America’s Problems!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

The Washington Cesspool is Now Totally Dysfunctional and Combative!

How I defined the “Washington Cesspool”:

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

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

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

Here are just a few recent examples:

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antifa is Absolutely Not What They Claim to Be!

The Anti-Fascism movement has been in existence since the 1920’s in various forms. It originated as a loosely organized movement to fight the spread of Fascism in Europe.

Antifa is NOT actually true Anti-Fascism! Antifa is a well-organized and well-funded group with the expressed purpose of fighting against “White Supremacy”, which they claim is Fascist. But this is NOT WHAT Antifa is either! Antifa is a new and uniquely American group of professional (organized and paid) violent anarchist with one objective. That objective is to destroy America’s current, Constitutional Republic form of government so it can be replaced with a Fascist form of government and become part of the “New World Order”. ULTIMATELY ANTIFA  ITSELF IS AN ORGANIZED FASCIST GROUP!   

If you watch any video footage of Antifa “anti-rally” or “anti-protest” activity you will see that they show up in large numbers wearing mask and protective gear and carrying weapons. These weapons include clubs, bottles, balloons filled with urine and feces, and sling shots to use to launch projectiles, including the urine and feces projectiles, at the police and legal rally or protest participants.

The Antifa thugs were not only allowed to gain strength during the Obama Administration, they were allowed  and even encouraged to become openly violent with the knowledge that they would not be arrested or charged with any crimes regardless of what they did.

Of course the Left and the Main Stream Media are still screaming that everything bad is caused by the “Alt-Right” groups and their Conservative supporters. The Left and Main Stream Media rarely say anything negative about Antifa or any other violent hard left group.

The good news is that police departments, including Berkeley recently began to stand up to violent protesters, including Antifa. The police are actually forcing the violent protesters to disperse, making arrest and charging people with crimes. Some are being charged with felonies!  The people arrested are also being prosecuted, not simply being released to walk away!  Tim Kane’s son was recently found guilty of charges of public violence at a protest in Minnesota late last year.

More important, some of the “leaders” of previous violent protest have recently been arrested and charged with crimes. One example is the middle school teacher in Southern California that was one of the leaders in the violent Berkeley protest earlier this year. After the violent protest she went on shows like FOX NEWS’ Tucker Carlson show to loudly claim that she was within her rights and was fighting Fascism.

Here is another great example of the difference in how things were under the Obama Administration and how they are during the first months of the Trump Administration. Far Left college professors are actually losing their jobs for disgusting public statements supporting violence against Conservatives, Right Wing groups and police. Here is a recent example. Michael Issacson, a professor at a well-known college of Criminal Justice in New York actually went on Tucker Carlson’s show to claim that he was an original organizer of Antifa. He then tweeted this, “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teacher at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cop”.  Social media exploded with outrage against this professor’s tweet and he was immediately suspended.

It is unarguable that Antifa should be on the “Domestic Terrorist List” Congress asked the President to create in the resolution they passed on September 11 and 12 condemning all hate groups!

Things are not changing fast enough for most of us but they are changing for the good of America!

 

The Left’s Open Hatred for America is Getting Louder and More Dangerous!

Over the last few months I have written and published a number of detailed articles about how irrational and unreasonable the Left’s hatred for America and anything “Conservative” has become. As I wrote each article I wanted to think that these public displays of hatred had peaked and we would begin to see an increase in public displays of patriotism. Since the November 2016 election we have seen a steady increase in public displays of patriotism, but unfortunately the hope that public displays of hatred for America had peaked was “wishful thinking”.

Here are just a few recent examples of irrational, unreasonable and public displays of open hatred for America:

  • An ESPN anchor went on a twitter tirade calling President Trump and his supporters “White Supremacist”. ESPN’s response was to issue a statement that “Jemele Hill had been counseled”. However when an anchor said something negative about Liberals on twitter in the past he was fired immediately. 
  • Democrat Representative Luis Gutiérrez called General John Kelly, a retired Marine Corps General, who is now President Trump’s Chief of Staff – a “disgrace to the uniform he used to wear” for standing by while Trump rescinded protections for undocumented immigrants who arrived as minors. General Kelly has served this country honorably for over 40 years!
  • Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted on Face Book that, “I hope Trump is assassinated” and then refused to apologize when called out about it. In fact, when she was asked why she refused to apologize by a talk radio show host she went on another angry rant about how bad Trump is!
  • Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Moore and other self-appointed “Hollywood geniuses” publicly said that the hurricanes were karma for the states that were hit so hard because they voted for Trump!
  • On September 11 and 12 Congress unanimously passed a resolution condemning “white supremacist” groups and urging President Trump to strongly condemn these hate groups. The resolution referred to all hate groups and urged that they be labeled as “domestic terrorist groups”. While the KKK and Neo –Nazi groups were specifically referred to there was no mention of Antifa, BLM, Black Panthers, By Any Means Necessary or any other groups like them? The resolution was allegedly inspired by the “white supremacist” violence in Charlottesville, with no mention of Antifa and BLM (who were by far the most violent people in Charlottesville). Congress spent part of two days on this resolution while they are quickly running out of time to pass any desperately needed meaningful legislation?
  • George Clooney is moving his family back to America because it is getting too dangerous to live in their (heavily guarded) Italian villa. No explanation as to why it is getting too dangerous to live there? He is typical of the Left’s “elite” who can afford to live in gated communities with armed security, or even have their own private armed security staff, but yet he insist the rest of us should not be allowed to own guns!
  • Self-appointed “Hollywood Elites” used a hurricane fund raising telethon to loudly rant against climate change deniers. The Left refuses to acknowledge that scientific data indicates that there has NOT been any measurable change in the earth’s temperature in 18 years and the polar bear population is actually increasing. Plus the failed predictions (by supposed climate experts, who are still highly paid public speakers) that New York City and other coastal cities would be under water in the 1990’s!
  • Liberals are posting disgusting comments on internet articles and social media about Eric Bolling’s son dying. Here is one of the disgusting examples, “Eric Bolling is out there spewing venom every day. Payback is best served dead!”

Where are the Democrats and the Main Stream Media in their condemnation of these open acts of hatred for America?  Many of these acts are actually treason! Where are the repercussions and consequences for these criminal acts (I think they are coming soon).

Is Congress so Broken That It Cannot Be Fixed?

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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?

Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Reached Epidemic Proportions!

Whenever I think that open hatred for President Trump could not get any worse, it does! Every time I turn on the TV or log into the internet I see new levels of dishonesty (fake news) and hear loud, virtually venomous rants directed at President Trump and anyone who supports him. New “media” outlets or outlets that in the past have never been involved with current events are joining in the attacks with poorly written and grossly inaccurate articles.

Here are a few recent examples:

  • Secretary Tillerson is being attacked for “destroying” the State Department?
  • Condoleezza Rice and Bob Gates are being attacked for endorsing Secretary Tillerson.
  • Wolf Blitzer stared solemnly into the camera and blamed President Trump for Charlottesville and the terrorism in Barcelona! According to him the terrorist in Barcelona were inspired by the car attack in Charlottesville! This is a new level of absurdity even for CNN.
  • Anderson Cooper opened his CNN show with a lengthy monologue describing President Trump as a “white power supporting racist”. Apparently Cooper did not see any of the video footage of what actually happened in Charlottesville? For example the clear photo of an anti-rally protester that was using an aerosol spray can and a cigarette lighter to make an improvised flame thrower that he was using to try and burn people passing by in the legal rally! Whether or not you support the rally participant’s beliefs does not matter in this case. They had a rally permit and the anti-rally protesters did not. Clearly the Charlottesville violence was organized and incited by Antifa and BLM paid protesters, and allowed to happen by the Charlottesville authorities. In fact it seems pretty obvious that the actions of the Charlottesville authorities made sure the violence happened and reached the levels that it did. But, according to the Trump haters, somehow President Trump is to blame for the violence in Charlottesville because he is a white supremacy racist?
  • It is interesting that the MSM is still obsessing with Charlottesville with limited coverage of how well the Boston authorities maintained control of the protesters last weekend. The difference in Charlottesville and Boston adds credibility to the belief that the violence in Charlottesville was intended to happen and the Charlottesville authorities are at least partially responsible.
  • Secretary Mnuchin continues to be publicly attacked for refusing to resign because President Trump is anti-Semitic! Another absurd lie! President Trump’s son-in-law and key advisor is Jewish and his daughter converted to Judaism! Another new low from the Left.
  • There has not been any MSM reporting on an illegal march in Dallas with the protesters blocking a street and refusing to disburse while carrying signs and chanting, “cops and the Klan go hand in hand, oink oink bang bang” .
  • Everywhere they show up the Antifa and BLM paid protesters come prepared for violence. They wear mask, hoods, protective gear and bring weapons, including urine and feces filled balloons and sling shots to launch the balloons at the police and legal rally participant’s .This has been happening since early in the last Presidential campaign and is getting worse every week. How much has the MSM reported on this?
  • James Clapper, DNI during the Obama Administration, told CNN’s Don Lemon that President Trump is unfit for office, unstable and is a danger to the world due to his access to the nuclear codes. Note: While he was DNI Clapper openly lied to Congress on live TV about US Intelligence agencies collecting data on U.S. citizens.

“But it is all Trump’s fault”……

I have been asking myself and other people why the Trump haters are getting louder and more extreme every week? There are only two possible explanations:

  1. They think that there is so much resistance to the Trump Presidency that he cannot survive much longer.
  2. They think President Trump is going to survive and is beginning to flush the “Washington Cesspool” down the drain. Consequently they are becoming desperate to preserve their decades old corrupt and un-American way of life.

I think it is some of both but number “2” is beginning to be more prevalent because President Trump is not giving any indication that he is weakening, and some of the “Washing Cesspool’s” corruption is beginning to be exposed.

I have written and published a number of articles about what I have noted here and other similar topics. You can find them all here on my website.
