“SEARCH AND DESTROY” – DEMOCRATS NEW MISSION!

I wonder if anyone but myself is sick of politics? We elected a non-politician to drain a swamp and the swamp is so huge and spans the entire United States, not just Washington DC. The problem is after nearly a year we are finally being treated to a journey back to “Peyton Place”.

We have seen the Russians blamed for Hillary’s demise when they were actually paid by the Democratic National Committee to build a clandestine plot to defeat Donald Trump. We have a “Search and Destroy” mission within the Justice Department to ruin the life of anyone close to Trump or his family. They are being fed by the mainstream media with every piece of fake news possible to get Trump ejected. They know when the swamp is drained they will be drummed out of the country by the people.

Washington DC is so scared of the mass of illegal actions that Congress is actually forcing some to resign before they are under oath. Our justice Department is so rife with hate, bias and liberals it would likely fold up if all of the cowards were dismissed. The bias and hate of the Federal Judges has even surprised me. Even the Supreme Court now makes decisions based on politics rather than the law.

If the truth was known and every member of Congress was forced to take a lie detector test no one would pass. If any of the males were asked if they ever made a pass at a woman and if any female were asked if they ever tricked a man all would fail if they said no. If 100% were asked if they ever padded an expense report all would fail if audited. None would pass if asked if they ever lied in their life as all would fail if they said no.

What we see happening in both Congress and all government employees is a race to survive and a good cleansing would be most refreshing.

Hopefully after Tuesday we can hear the news again as Mr. Roy Moore will be elected or defeated. In my 87 years I have never watched a “Lynching” of an American without his day in court. He has been labeled guilty by the media, Republicans and Democrats in Congress without a fair trial. To me the women who were obviously sought out by the Democratic Party to scream harassment now, were paid. Why did they not come forth when he was elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, not once but twice, 2000-2003 and 2012-2016.

What the media has omitted was at the time of every accusation he was a Democrat. Who is Roy Moore? He graduated from the US Military Academy with a BS in 1969 and served as a Captain in the US Army. He received his JD from the University of Alabama in 1977. He is married with four children and five grandchildren.  

Not having or caring to learn more the only thing I would condemn Moore for is being a lawyer. I would be first to admit we have far too many lawyers, especially in Congress. Even if Moore loses his opponent is also a lawyer and the people can’t win either way. I know nothing about Doug Jones or really care to. He is a liberal and enemy of common sense.

FREEDOM & PROMISE!

 

FREEDOM & PROMISE!

“For many years the House and Senate built a great wall.

While fighting over health care they had a great fall.

All the bureaucrats, Democrats and the lobbyist men,

Never want Congress to work together again”.

 

“America is filled with hate and ill will that has divided us,

By people like Schumer, Obama, Pelosi and George Soros.

After eight long years of destroying our freedoms and peace

America with Clinton faced another eight years of fleece.”

 

“Despite the hate, venom and desires of a biased media,

Unhappy American voters finally elected a leader.

Trump was his name and a Swamp he discovered,

With the people’s support our freedoms will be recovered”.

 

“We are at war with enemies both within and world wide,

Both hate our freedoms and Americans must decide.

The Socialists Demoncrats with Obama in charge.

Opened the door to the Muslims, world’s enemy at large.”

 

“If enough real Americans support Trump in his drive,

To provide jobs and stop welfare from being our strive.

America will return to its place as a leader so desired,

And prove that free people are that asset required.”

 

Happy Thanksgiving from a freedom loving 87 year old veteran and now a Poet who loves this Country so dearly.

POLITICS & JUSTICE STINKS!

Watching politics fairly early in my life has progressed from civil discourse into what we have today, a lying, race baiting   “Blood Sport”.  The one fact that has not changed is the Democrats continue to win elections with votes from the poor, ill informed, aliens and the minorities who never gain stature. In my lifetime, I grew up in the 1930’s, when 98% of Americans had nothing and 2% had everything. There was no middle class that we saw bloom in the years after WWII. The sad part is that the other group I described above stayed poor by design to mass vote for the Democrats.

When I was a young man the Conservatives were the Democrats in Texas. My grandfather was a local Democrat serving as a County Clerk for some 30 years. He took me as a boy to sit in a courtroom and observe the the legal process. Later in life I went to school with the daughter of a Democratic Governor of Texas. Both my grandfather and  Governor Jester would turn over in their graves if they could see how the Democrats have changed. Today they are the party of hate, deception, lying, promoters of civil disruption and property destruction.

When Obummer was elected President conservatives were deeply disappointed as the Democrats have been since Trump was elected. The difference was that conservatives did not promote hate, organize civil disobedience and widely promote destruction of other people’s property. We did not see marches in the streets, flag burning, and the mass hysteria of hate directed towards our veterans by kneeling or fist waving during the playing of our National Anthem at sporting events.

The Obummer years did produce the 300% increase in our national debt. More hate and civil unrest between Americans since the Civil War. A shift of people’s retirement savings from the middle class to welfare programs. Addition of over 2,000,000 more younger people on Social Security. The largest increase in underemployed people on welfare in history. The largest increase in Government Employees in history. The destruction of all industry retirement programs. The total destruction of employee healthcare benefits for new employees. A healthcare debacle that will bankrupt America if it can’t be modified.

The Demoncrats has declared war on gun ownership and promote that all guns be confiscated by the government. This has been tried before and actually allowed Hitler to destroy over 6,000,000 humans. Gun control in Europe will just make the takeover by the Muslims easier. We have opened floodgates for the immigration of Muslims who hate us and will never assimilate as Americans that is ruining Europe already.

The enemy we have in the biggest war we have ever faced today is our own Government. We now have a Supreme Court and Federal Judges who make laws instead of enforcing the laws enacted by Congress. We have made Government employees super America who have benefits far better than the rest of us. We have thousands of ex-government employees serving as consultants, lobbyist who have millions to use to buy their ways to impact every decision made by Congress and every level of our government including the Judicial process.

Mr Trump defined this morass as a swamp. The unique happening of trying to drain this swamp is 100% of the Demoncrats in Congress oppose anything Trump proposes including lower taxes, better healthcare and creation of more jobs. The real surprise has been the handful of Republicans like John McCain and the rest of the Republicans in Name Only, RINO’s, who have been exposed as Liberal-Progressives. If the Republicans can’t unite it will delay the “Swamp Draining” until the 2018 elections and the Republicans purge itself of RINO’s.

I may not live long enough to see how Trump finishes the things he promised but I hope and pray he is not assassinated like others who tried before him. I hope he forces a vote on term limits on Congress and some way to oust Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices that openly make law instead of enforcing it.    

Trump has tried to enact everything he proposed as a candidate and promised as our 45th President. If the Democrats had any intelligence they would admit they just serve to say “NO” and let Trump fail. The reason for the battle is they know he has the votes now to eventually do everything he promised. “DUMB” is the best way to describe a Democrat today. It is pretty obvious they know who owns the most weapons and ammo and if a civil war Obummer wanted is their objective they better hope they are bulletproof.

WHAT AMERICA NEEDS – A CONGRESS THAT ACTS INSTEAD OF FIGHTS!

What Congress has become in my lifetime is a body that spends most of their time developing ways to stop progress and develop political actions to divides the people instead of focusing on progress. I researched their responsibilities and found the following.  

1. Congress is the legislative, or lawmaking, branch of our national government. It shares power with the president and the Supreme Court. The writers of the U.S. Constitution thought Congress was so important, they listed it first! Congress has two parts, the Senate and the House of Representatives.

One thing is certain, Congress has lost its importance of being first as they have defaulted their power and the Presidents use executive powers to act to either help or hurt the people. We just had a President that did more to divide the people than every enemy we have had in our history. Now we have a President that is trying to unite the people and he is being combated by the Federal Courts, the Supreme Court and both the Democrats and Republicans in Congress. The people elected Trump to unite the people and the other two branches of government have stopped him from doing exactly what he promised to do when he was elected. Congress is dysfunctional and so divided it only debates and gets nothing done.

2. Congress has authority over financial and budgetary matters, through the enumerated power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States.

The Senate has not approved a budget in so long it should have its powers removed. If you look at the IRS alone the collection of taxes alone has become a major cost of governing and the people can no longer do their own taxes. I have a Masters in Business and I have been unable to do my taxes for over 25 years. The IRS has grown a lot faster than the economy by issuing 70,000 pages of rules that are changed daily. Trump promised a new tax system that would simplify the tax system and it has been over nine months for nothing to happen in Congress to help the people.

3. Congress has five main functions: lawmaking, representing the people, performing oversight, helping constituents, and educating the public.

Lawmaking created little while lawbreaking has become commonplace in our cities and many States. Federal Judges now make law, Our last President, Governors and Mayors openly ignore laws and nothing happens. Trump called Washington DC a “Swamp”. When a Federal Judge in Hawaii can make laws by decree the Swamp is a morass likely nationwide?

How many of those who read this have been helped by your Congressperson?

As far as educating the public Congress can’t even educate its members. The recent debacle over a Trump phone call is proof positive Congress has no control over its own members.

4. Through legislative debate and compromise, the U.S. Congress makes laws that influence our daily lives. It holds hearings to inform the legislative process, conducts investigations to oversee the executive branch, and serves as the voice of the people and the states in the federal government.

Now we get to the red meat. Congress has demonstrated that debate and compromise are two things that have become totally inoperative today. Congress has made laws that have devastated the people and our daily lives. Congress holds hearings to give face time to individuals who consistently prove they can’t ever agree that white is white or right is right. There are so many Congresspersons  begging for face time on the networks and in hearings I feel sure all 535 members have a hairdresser and a makeup professional to make sure their lipstick, powder and hair look professional.

5. What are the three powers of the Congress? Enumerated powers, or the expressed powers, are powers the Constitution explicitly grants to Congress, including the power to declare war and levy taxes.

I for one doubt that if we were attacked today by North Korea that Congress would be debating the issue to declare war for six months and the vote would be 52 to 48 in the Senate. Even the RINO Republicans would all hopefully vote to declare war. Well I have always been an optimists. If Ms Collins, Mr McCain, Ms Murkowski or Mr Paul rebelled against war, North Korea might gain control of the entire west coast states and Alaska. Maybe we should throw in Arizona, Illinois and New York?

What America needs first and now are jobs, jobs and jobs. Putting our welfare army to work will solve the National debt issue. Only term limits will correct the Congressional issues.

DISHONOR A DEAD HERO.. A NEW LOW EVEN FOR THE DEMONCRATS!

This heartfelt expression of disgust, disappointment, and far above intelligence was written by a friend of mine. You can feel his sincere desire for a united America again. I hope everyone who chooses to read this will share this with everyone you possibly can. Watching the hate filled interviews all day yesterday from a rabid Congresswoman was disgusting. Her unusual appearance, you would expect to see “Hooking” on a street corner in Harlem, was disgusting. Why would any news service broadcast anything this woman uttered? If this service man’s family supported this “Carnival Sideshow Freak” to do anything he would curse them from his grave. Enjoy a summary of the feelings of any American, Red, Yellow, Black or White that serves and or loves our Country, expressed by Peter.   CB

The recent attack on Trump by the BLACK CONGRESSWOMAN from Florida — is another example of USING A SACRED MOMENT … SACRED STRUCTURE … for one’s own Political Agenda — like the athlete and the Anthem … the Flag.   Some of these people CANNOT come to THE IDENTIFICATION … THE MENTAL UNDERSTANDING of THE SOUL of the COUNTRY.  They would TEAR DOWN the Crucifix … the Cross because THEIR AGENDA reaches beyond the Sacredness of the Christ Symbol.   This embarrassment to Black Personage [actually to all Human Kind] is totally OBLIVIOUS to the DEEP LOSS in the sacrifice of a young soldier and his family.  In her IGNORANCE AND “ONLY PRIORITY” she uses all to try and EMBARRASS THE PRESIDENT … AT ANY AND ALL EXPENSE.  She as the Athlete show before God and Nation … their ULTIMATE OF NARCISSIST … all for ME and ONLY ME … damn the Nation and those who serve it … even to the death of a young soldier … the sorrow of his family … the loss of a Sport that they feel can be USED as THEIR PULPIT!  ALL is secondary to my own EMMINENCE.  ONLY ME … nothing more important than ME!!!

I KNOW IT IS NOT ALL BLACK — as the one retired ELOQUENT Black Athlete — frequently discussing the problem on FOX — describes it well — an off shoot of DEMOCRATIC indentured servant creation – and now they who have been so enabled financially … yet not educated … have no brains of possible service and healing that should go with the ascendency of financial success.  They cannot see that they can now do something to help their brother of race — but as this DISGUSTING WOMAN CONGRESSWOMAN — a total embarrassment to herself — her race — the fallen soldier — the nation of which she represents … but does not feel its soul!

DISGUSTING WOMAN … DISGUSTING PIECES OF HUMANKIND!  Do believe she will be soon entering a WELL DESERVED “SHUNNED” STATE.  With the OPPORTUNITY to REACH OUT and CHANGE conditions … she and they “squander” themselves in narcissistic megalo-ego-mania … accomplish NADA for their brother and sister.  Neither Mandela nor Martin Luther King … would call them beloved companions on the journey to further improvement of racial betterment … using the GIFTS they have been given … to advance toward solution.  SAD!

For every great leader there are so many who do nothing but EGO THEMSELVES.  These who divide rather than improve are in the news!

SIC’EM PRESIDENT TRUMP!

Am I the only American that feels this way?

It is so refreshing to watch a born leader wade into Washington and make a difference. Congress, Federal Judges, too many bureaucrats, lobbyist, the national media and the seemingly endless number of non-profit tax evading groups are being exposed as “Elite” Americans. I can remember when they were no registered lobbyist in Washington and today there must be approaching 10,000. They represent every other country on Earth and to combine all of these paid individuals with a name I shall use “Bloodsuckers”. I wish I knew exactly how many ex-military, ex-Congressmen, ex-government bureaucrats and spy’s we have living off of so much money that would likely pay off the National Debt? If we had a media that cared about the people these costs would be published every day like the stock market averages. 

The tax evading pressure groups and “Bloodsuckers” have nothing but self interest for so many different different interest it would take a year just to list them all. The worst of the lot have far too much money to be used to buy votes in Congress. It must take hundreds of Congressional aides to be bribed just to get them access to the 535 “Super Elites” we call Senators or Representatives. Not all of these power brokers reside in Washington so each of these 535 must have offices in their home State district to listen to the folks and again the “Bloodsuckers” also work each of these District offices. I live in District #1 in Texas and there appears to be offices in several towns in Deep East Texas.

It would be interesting to see exactly how many people are employed by the 535 Congresspersons by District and State? Asking for the costs would be impossible.

It would be nice to know exactly how much it Costs to fund Congress each year?

I wonder how many people are necessary to operate the Supreme Court? They only function a few months out of each year. What does it costs? What do the people do the rest of the year? 

Surely someone knows exactly how many automobiles and airplanes are owned by the Federal government? By the time you found out the number would be useless.

Of the cajillion Federal Judges scattered across America poses other questions? Do they all have the same exact budgets. What does the Judiciary costs the taxpayers? I would make these “elites” work 9-5 every day like Joe “Six Pack”.

It is amazing in this day of face to face communications that the Senate vote on Obamacare had to be delayed until John McCain, “Judas of Arizona” could be released from the hospital. Then he was probably flown by air ambulance to the Capitol to vote to keep Obamacare he has been screaming to scrap for 8 years. Anyone who believes that he was not bought off, probably by George Soros, is insane. Just think if he had stayed in the hospital there would have been a tie vote and the Vice President could have broken the tie. We would be months ahead of agreeing to a health care system that did not reward Insurance companies and no telling how many “Bloodsuckers” across the land. Obamacare was great for the “Welfare Army” who refuse to plant lettuce and mow Congresspersons lawns. It was killing small businesses nation wide and no one cared. Whoops Donald Trump cared even if the Republicans in Congress sunk the ship.

Why do we still have to fly to Washington to vote. A small office in a strip mall could calculate Congressional votes with videotape form the 535 offices in each district and State. The US Capitol could be made into a historical museum like the other historical places in Washington DC. If Congress used the offices in each State it would drive the “Bloodsuckers” nuts and increase their travel costs to offset the Congressional travel. Can you imagine just how many Government employees would be free to find a legitimate job somewhere away from DC. Washington could return to a nice place without all of the gun-toting thieves and robbers who could move back to Chicago.

All of the Government employees displaced could work in the industrial sector that will be increased by President Trump and the “Lions of Industry” who shipped the millions of jobs to China, Mexico and other tax havens worldwide. Just taking the regulations off of the energy sector will make millions of jobs for Americans instead of foreign placements to serve the computer industry. Why don’t we educated Americans to fill these high paying jobs?

I could set here for the next year and never stop asking these questions but no one would likely read something 1,000,000,000 words long. In truth I doubt ten people will read this article that is less than 800 words. I’ll keep writing. How long????  C Brewer         

WHAT DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT?

Watching Fox News, the only media outlet with sanity, and reading news from the blogosphere is devoid of what the people really desire. The only person in Congress who votes with the Democrats, Bernie Sanders, appears to explain what he wants. The rest of the Democrats in Congress have no idea what they want but are in lock step against anything the Republicans want. The leadership in Congress, Republicans, have so many different things they want only a wizard would ever decipher them. So far the only thing everyone on Congress agrees on is taking vacations.

People in California would likely vote to succeed from the Union and mandate Spanish as their language. When their taxes rose to pay for their welfare paradise they would be easily annexed by Mexico without any military protection. Hollywood would be happy, their State leadership would be happy but would the majority of the people be happy? I would be happy to lose the assortment of left wing nuts like Pelosi, Brown, Feinstein, Boxer and Maxine Waters. This would be a plus for Congress. I would hope our Texas esteemed Congressional loser, Sheila Jackson Lee, would immigrate to Mexiformia.

Next one would hope that Rahm Emanuel would encourage everyone in Illinois succeed from the union and create the country of “Mayhem”. This would allow Trump to build another wall around the entire new country. The average criminal could not swim out as his banned guns and the weight of ammo would cause him to drown. Sane people would move to Indiana or Wisconsin snd the killing rate would eventually eliminate everyone. I would be happy and Congress would be better, maybe.

Alaska has sent one Senator Lisa Murkowski to Congress that is obviously a Republican in Name Only (RINO). I hope the people of Alaska are happy with Obamacare while it destroys small business in every State in the union. No small business can survive if they provide healthcare in the US anymore. These Americans have no voice watching their meager profits go to the insurance giants while the people who do work are going broke with premiums that double every year. This does not make me happy as a company I own a part of, had to cancel insurance benefits or go broke. Are the people of Alaska proud of this Senator?

Kentucky suffers while another RINO, Rand Paul, just wants face time so he can try to be a President someday. His failure to support overturning Obamacare is destroying hard working people in every industry as even the large companies no longer provide insurance for new hires in every State. I suppose the people of Kentucky are happy? I am not.

On to Maine with Senator Susan Collins apparently makes the people happy by supporting Obamacare now. Like all of the maverick Senators so far she appears to just be bought off by special interest like Murkowski, Paul, McCain and now possibly joined by Mike Lee and one of my Senators, Ted Cruz. I could keep going but it would be redundant.

It would be wonderful if FOX NEWS would send out its array of news presenters to poll the people in every State to find out exactly what the people want. Congress operates on who pays the most to support or oppose everything. It appears that George Soros owns the entire Democratic party and every media outlet but FOX. Should he buy FOX the propaganda machine would be complete. His ownership of the Democrats makes it easy for him to find the few Rino’s he needs to manipulate the entire Congress. With this power he will own America if the people do not listen to Trump.

Folks in my opinion it boils down to a war on who runs America and its future. It is Soros or Trump. I like Trump as you must know. Soros will win if the people do not rise up and clear out Congress with some real Americans.

Everyone who might read this needs to speak up and it would be nice to see if anyone agrees with me? I do not expect anyone to tell me.  C Brewer

       

LIFE, A STRANGE JOURNEY!

Watching all of the violence on the news in between, prior to and after two horrible hurricanes gave me time to deeply evaluate some of my own life. It is hard to believe I have watched this great country go from rags to riches then slowly chart a course to self destruction in my 87 years. Sadly I have family that is so focused on socializing America it would not surprise me if I saw some of my own grandchildren on TV involved in useless demonstrations and property destruction before I croak. I really hope not.

When I entered adulthood, at 16 in my case, few high school graduates had any opportunity to attend college. I was certain there was nothing anyone could teach me as I knew everything. I have written before that one of the smartest decisions I ever made was enlisting in the US Navy at 17. Looking back I was better prepared for my trip through life than most of my classmates who were later drafted and served in the Korean war. If every American boy and girl were required to serve after high school or reaching the age of 18 in a federal program things would be different. The program would last only ninety days and be designed to transition and prepare them for adult life. This would result in America not having the insurrection we see today.  

Unfortunately this will never happen as the leadership in America has slowly disappeared. Today we have leaders that survive with power instead of wisdom. Watching the leadership of the Republican party since the last election has been sickening. We now have a born successful leader willing to give up a life of luxury to try to save the country from itself. Sadly he has been abandoned by his own Republican party in accomplishing needed change by people who have elevated their status to elite untouchables.

I really hope I live to see Donald Trump introduce these bureaucratic has beens to unemployment with term limits that they believe the people will not support. If the people want America to return to prosperity they will throw these power sick millionaires out of Congress and soon.

Nothing President Trump has done so far has made Congress happy. The media bias and outright hate have caused most of the insurrection to date. Our Federal Courts have been stuffed with so many Socialists Judges we are having a stand off only the people can settle. Lifetime appointments for these “elites” has created chaos that must eventually be stopped. The Supreme Court is a perfect example of bias as simple things are decided by political reasons rather than the laws in force. Again the people have the power. The current President is challenged for trying to implement the changes he promised when we elected him. I pray that we the people stand behind the first leader we have elected since Ronald Reagan or Socialism will be alive again to doom our Republic.

I want to close this limited walk through life by giving you advice whether you are 16 or 60. Regardless of your desires, expectations, wishes or prayers your destiny was programmed to end your life cycle the day you are born. You only have one trip so please enjoy every year you have by being happy. Watching these young Americans and aliens destroy property, inflict injury on innocent others makes me want to throw up. Free speech is the cornerstone requirement for freedom regardless of any reason. These riots remind me of the youth in Germany that were the tool used by Hitler to brainwash an entire country to self destruction.

How do you feel about the future? I wish enough people would comment on this article to let me share your feelings with others in another article. I will continue to share my conservative position as long as I draw a breath before the fat lady sings. I may not have many people read my work but the ones who do have my promise to keep trying to help make a difference.

POLITICIAN VS BUSINESSMAN?

WE ARE WATCHING THE REBIRTH OF A NATION!

As you will see at the end of this brilliant article I have no idea who wrote this. Having been in the business world with two large Corporations, Lockheed-Martin and Halliburton I have even played one of the roles described in this article many times. Actually I never worked a day for Lockheed-Martin but they bought the company I worked for for 27 years named LTV. I started out with an aerospace related company named Temco when I finished my enlistment in the US Navy. A few years later an arbiter named James Ling, a small electrical contractor, became one of the first Americans to learn how to get control of a much larger company by being smart. Now we had Ling-Temco. A couple of years later Jim Ling gained control of a much larger company, Chance Vought, and we now had LTV or Ling-Temco-Vought. Every time we merged I was part of a team that went in for the “hatchet” work described later.

The first words you will read in this article that describes exactly what is happening in Washington D.C. states that Donald Trump may be the smartest President we ever had. You can go to the bank and be certain that Donald Trump is not only the smartest President we have ever had, he is the smartest businessman we have ever had. He is playing the fiddle while Congress and the dumbest media clowns ever allowed on the airwaves make total fools of themselves.

The winner of this largest conflict of power in my lifetime will be the American people. If the people don’t panic and just sit back and watch him make fools of every politician, news moron and the broken Justice system the people will regain control of the government. Jobs will be plentiful, profits will boom for business and taxes will be less for everyone. He can get term limits for the worst of our government, Congress itself, and that will tear down the barriers to have “Public Servants” rather than a place for Lawyers to live off of the public teat with benefits beyond reason. The career politicians have built the biggest waste of money and crooked ways to bleed the people ever created. The drained swamp will uncover so much greed and illegal activity we will have to build bigger prisons. My thanks to my often guest writer, Ron Jenkins for sharing this with me.

Hold onto your hat as you will soon be treated to read about what is really happening in the White House. The only way this can be stopped is if Trump is assassinated just like several others have been recently. I am convinced they got Justice Scalia and money assured the silence.

C Brewer September 7th 2017

Donald Trump may be the smartest President we have had for quite some time.

 

Apparently, liberals and never-Trumpers are so isolated in their political circles that they have no concept how things work in the real world of business and corporate America.

For example, they completely fail to grasp the concept of the “hatchet man.  

Allow me to explain:  

Say you are a business tycoon. You just successfully completed a large-scale acquisition and merger, bringing together multiple smaller companies into one conglomerate.  

After the merger, you want to put your own people in charge of everything. However, all those smaller companies had their own executives – and, at least for the short term- you need to keep many of them around to keep things running.

So, you keep many of those executives around, and let them retain their own senior staff.

You even appoint one of them – the head of the largest of the companies you acquired – to be the CEO of the conglomerate, and he pledges to get all the departments working together harmoniously.

After a transition period, some of them are doing fine in the new conglomerate – but others are clearly causing trouble. In fact, the one you appointed CEO is clearly a disaster.

The newly merged departments are working against each other. Furthermore, you have good suspicion he is dealing in insider trading – nothing you can take to a prosecutor, but there is a lot of circumstantial evidence building up.

Worse, he is not only doing his own dirty dealing, but it appears he may even be leaking intellectual property to your competitors, helping them take market share from you.Clearly, he has to go – and go now.  Problem is, many of the senior employees in your conglomerate are loyal to him. If you just fire him and put in your own chosen CEO, you know you could get a lot of backlash from disgruntled employees.  

And in your business, there is such a small profit-margin that you really can’t afford anything at all that threatens performance. So what do you do?

In comes the hatchet man.

The hatchet man is someone you bring in for the sole purpose of slashing the problems and shaking things up over a very short period of time – but doing it in a way that deflects any blame or blow back away from you.

As soon as the problems are hacked away, the hatchet man leaves – taking the ire and resentment with him, and leaving you free to bring in your new team for a fresh start.

This happens in the business world all the time. And Donald Trump is a businessman. He knows this. He has lived this. We’ve seen him do it on “The Apprentice.” We’ve read about it in his books.

This is not a surprise to anyone. Except for liberals and never-Trumpers.

Enter Scaramucci.

Liberals and never-Trumpers see the past weeks as proof of a Hitler-clown-circus spectacle, as evidence that Trump is unhinged and our government is in the hands of madmen.  Anyone who understands the business world and Donald Trump fully understands that what we just witnessed was a perfectly executed hatchet man maneuver.  

When Trump won the election, he essentially performed the political equivalent of an acquisition and merger.

He brought together different political factions – establishment Republicans, conservatives, tea party, religious right, moderates, independents, cross-overs, into one winning political coup.

For some, it was a hostile takeover – and if they were going to be dragged in against their will, they would sure as hell resist. This is where Reince Priebus came in.

Priebus, as the then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, was hired as White House Chief of Staff to be a sort of post-merger CEO.  It was his job to bring all these political factions together and get them to work harmoniously. But he failed.

Worse, there is ample evidence to suggest he not only failed, but worked against Trump and the Trump agenda. Look at the leaks. Look at all the chaos. Look at all the bureaucracy continuing to work at odds with the president.

Priebus and a number of other people around him – had to go.

Back to Scaramucci.

Donald Trump has known for some time that Priebus was a disaster. He was going to give him his six-month trial period – that’s a fairly common thing in the private sector.  After that, heads were going to roll. But Trump himself doesn’t want to be the hatchet man. He needs to be able to lead after the bloodbath. So what does he do?  He turns to an old friend he has known for many years – someone with nothing to lose, someone who can step in with a hatchet and hack away, someone who can then just walk away from it all and leave the slate clean. He turned to Scaramucci.

So what does Scaramucci do? He comes in swinging. He fires a few people to make a quick example. He tells others they can “resign” right now if they want to – but if not, they will be fired. Others see what is going on and just up and quit of their own accord.

That problem CEO, Priebus? Oh, the new “structure” of the organization puts Scaramucci in direct competition with Priebus and Priebus throws up his hands and says “fine, I’m out of here.”  And Scaramucci does it all in a way that is spectacularly visible to draw all the fire from Trump critics.  

So how does it all end? It ends with Trump putting in his new CEO – the one he probably wanted from day one, but held back – and the new CEO says “OK, Scaramucci – you are no longer needed here.”

Gen. Kelly now has a clean slate to start fresh – and Scaramucci takes all the heat.  Where the left and never-Trumpers see a circus freak-show, realists from the business world see a perfectly executed post-merger hatchet-man job.

The political wonks see Kelly taking command as the first sane thing to happen in this administration. They don’t realize they’ve been played, and played perfectly.  And soon we will likely see some other changes that move the Executive Branch further towards what Trump has wanted from day one. And then watch the real swamp-drainer get to work. It sucks to be Hillary Clinton right now..

Oh, and Scaramucci?

He gets a sweet deal out of all this – no doubt, he and his friend Donald Trump talked it all out first.  Scaramucci was already facing a nasty divorce that would result in the liquidation of his business to divide assets.

A little-known law allows people who are legally required to sell a business as a condition of employment in the Executive Branch (to prevent conflicts of interest) to defer the taxes on their profits from the sale.  Scaramucci was going to have to sell his company anyway due to his pending divorce. Now he and his soon-to-be ex-wife just saved $80 million in taxes.

So don’t think for a moment all this was an unplanned mess that went awry. Scaramucci and Trump knew exactly what they were doing.  All of this was planned – and foreseen. Not just by me, but by others as well.

Scott Adams wrote before Trump was inaugurated that, to his critics, the first year of Trump would be a play in three acts:

Act One – Trump is literally Hitler.

Act Two – Trump is not literally Hitler, but Trump is incompetent.

Act Three – Trump is not incompetent, but we don’t like his policies.

We’ve seen this play out. From election night up through the first 100 days, the left was out rioting and acting as though Trump taking office was literally the end of Western Civilization.

But after 100 days, when Trump had failed to do evil-dictator things like round up all the brown people and put the gays into camps and force women to stay home and have babies, it became farcical to continue the “Trump is Hitler” narrative.  And so from that 100 day point up until now, it has been the “Trump is incompetent” game.  

Look at all the chaos. Look at all the leaking. Look at all the tweets. Now, we begin Act Three.

With Priebus out and Kelly in, things will settle down. Pretty soon, all the left will have to say is “we just don’t like Trump’s policies.”…

Act Three.

And once that happens, the left is dead. Because, Trump’s policies are policies that most Americans actually agree with.  We should put America first. Build back our economy.

Create jobs.

Strengthen the military.

Protect the border. Outside a few densely-populated liberal strongholds like New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and – of course – Washington, D.C.,

Americans in general agree with all of this. So when all the left has to say is “Trump’s policies are wrong,” the left will literally be telling most of America, “you people are stupid.”

Trump will win 47 states in 2020. The left will be scratching their heads and wondering what the hell happened.

And you’ll be able to look back and say, “hey, some of us told you all this back in 2017”

CONGRESS – ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE?

First let me define who are the people? People vote to elect Congresspersons. Voters are supposed to be 18 years old and US citizens. Our founders believed as I do that they should be 21 like I was when I first voted. Today Congress must feel that it should be 26 as they defined this as the age parents are responsible to care for them. This must still be the age our Senate feels to be the age of adult responsibility as they failed to overturn and repeal “Obamacare” that established this idiotic age requirement.

How dumb Americans have become to allow Congress to let an 18 year old child vote, but require a parent to be responsible for them until they are 26. I have shared this before but allow me to include my own path to adulthood to support my feeling voters should be 21. I graduated High School at 16. I enlisted, with my parents consent, in the US Naval Reserve when I reached the ripe old age of 17. Was I an adult, no, no, no. I just thought I was. My request for active duty was accepted long before I was 18. I can assure you after completion of “Boot Camp”, I was an adult in every facet of respect, responsibility and love of my country. I was still a boy when I got married at 18, became a father at 19 and I was an adult by then. I still had to wait until I was 22 to vote for a President.

Today we have children who usually graduate at 18 and are shipped off to college by parents who seem to feel they have done their job. They enter a college or university to be educated by professors who are not mainstream Americans. Ninety percent of the people who take over the minds of the children are left of center extremist who feel our forefathers were senseless when they created our Republic form of government. Most of these parents are good people but have no idea or concern that over the next four years their children are being brainwashed. Some, but not very many, of these children understand they are being manipulated and can get an education by ignoring the mind games.        

Little by little we have created a society that has allowed Congress to establish an “Elite Society” of Americans. They make laws that force the people to obey them and exempt themselves from having to comply, even after they leave office. Watching our Justice Department ignore lawless actions like we observed by the Clinton’s and other “Elite” class individuals is sickening. There were enough lawless actions by government employees over the last eight years to fill an entire prison. Supreme Court Justices can vote contrary to the Constitutional laws and never be even questioned. Congress is the only body that can impeach but they really don’t feel that “Elite Americans have to obey the laws. How many of you even know what Congress is elected to do? To help you, if you even care, the following might give you a brief idea.   

The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two chambers: the Senate and ,the House of Representatives.

The Congress meets in the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Both senators and representatives are chosen through direct election, though vacancies in the Senate may be filled by a gubernatorial appointment. Congress has 535 voting members: 435 resentatives and 100 Senators. The House of Representatives has six non-voting members in addition to its 435 voting members. These members can, however, sit on congressional committees and introduce legislation. These members represent Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms representing the people of a single constituency, known as a “district”. Congressional districts are apportioned to states by population using the United States Census results, provided that each state has at least one congressional representative. Each state, regardless of population or size, has two senators. Currently, there are 100 senators representing the 50 states. Each senator is elected at-large in their state for a six-year term, with terms staggered, so every two years approximately one-third of the Senate is up for election.

To be eligible for election, a candidate must be aged at least 25 (House) or 30 (Senate), have been a citizen of the United States for seven (House) or nine (Senate) years, and be an inhabitant of the electing state when elected.

The Congress was created by the Constitution of the United States and first met in 1789, replacing in its legislative function the Congress of the Confederation. Although not constitutionally mandated, in practice since the 19th century, Congress members are typically affiliated to the Republican Party or to the Democratic Party and only rarely to a third party or as independents.

Hopefully this will refresh everyone’s civics knowledge. My thanks to Wikipedia for the material.

The Progressive-Liberal wingnuts have successfully lowered the voting age, placed enough radical Jurists on the Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and infiltrated every College and University that exists. Their desire for Socialism could be fulfilled by emigrating to Europe that would make everyone here happier.

Congress has vacated their responsibilities by creating the “Elite” status that “MUST” be eliminated. As they are the only ones with the power to erase the super status they have created the people must do their job. A seat in Congress is filled by the people voting for someone. In most cases today anyone could be better than the featherbedding array of “Elites” we have now serving.

Congress is leaderless folks. Any group of Americans that care would not take a month’s vacation when the people are suffering. The Republicans that voted to keep Obamacare just because they hate Trump should be charged with treason. The Democrats that saddled the people with this Socialist monstrosity called Obamacare should be in prison too.

Until the people demand term-limits on Congress this debacle will just get worse. People like Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer and Ryan could not lead or manage a hamburger business. My apology to those who know how to manage a hamburger business but most voters today would freak out if I had said IBM, Texaco or other Fortune 500 businesses.

A few years ago the IRS took over a combination bar and house of ill repute in Nevada which was legal. It only took the government a few months to let the place go bankrupt. Had Congress been responsible, they would have moved it to Washington, legalized it and built a new building to house it. As its services would be free to Congresspersons it would have then gone bankrupt.

The biggest enemy of the people today is the 535 “Elite” Congresspersons. They will continue to bankrupt the USA and work halftime until the voters throw them out. Why not start next year when 435 in the House are up for re-election. It will take longer to flush the Senate toilet as only a third are up for re-election next year.

What are your thoughts? I will publish them unedited if you take the time to read this.   C Brewer    8/26/17
