Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

POLITICIANS, ESPECIALLY DEMOCRATS, = GREED!

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR THESE HYPOCRITES.

My old friend Jack Peck sent me these facts that just prove how much wealth politicians can amass in their government jobs. This writer who is black choose to use Democrats to make his points and I feel they are the greediest but they are all suspected crooks. It would be nice if we had a law that required every elected politician to make available to the public their current IRS accepted net worth before they are sworn in. Then they would have to make public their latest audited net worth when they leave office. If the net worth was greater when they left office they would be required to justify how the gain was achieved. C Brewer

As they prepare for their exodus from the White House, the Obamas are about to join another rarified club that of the ruling liberal elite class owning multiple ultra-expensive homes in highly exclusive communities that none in America can afford save the one-percenters. The very same one-percenters whom they rant and rail against as being the greedy, ego-centric millionaires who simply have too much.

Following the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton who (despite Hillary’s claim earlier this year that they left White House dead broke) somehow managed to educate their daughter at Stanford, Oxford, NYU and Columbia; acquire a $1.7 million estate in Chappaqua and a $2.85 million mansion in Georgetown) and Bernie Sanders who shortly after ending his 2016 presidential bid bought his third home a $600,000 lakefront vacation house on Lake Champlain. Barack and Michelle have real estate designs of their own.

Earlier this year it was revealed that upon his leaving the presidency the Obamas will not be returning to Chicago they will instead be moving into a $6 million, 8,200-square foot, 9-bedroom 12-bathroom mansion in Kalorama, one of the District’s most posh, desirable and exclusive neighborhoods in the heart of one of America’s wealthiest zip codes.

With daughter Malia off to college that leaves just Barack, Michelle and Sasha until the younger daughter graduates high school in 2018. Nothing says I care about climate change, energy consumption and our CO2 footprint  re than keeping an 8,200-square foot house heated and air conditioned year round for just three people. The hypocrisy and do as I say not as I do hubris of all these wealthy climate change proponents is sickening.

By the way, the Obama’s new home is just two doors down from Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta, who recently lost the most significant campaign of his life. But that’s not the new news. We have now learned Barack and Michelle are the proud owners of yet another home, this one on the Left Coast .As reported by Page Six and other sources, the Obamas have a new home in Rancho Mirage, California. Rancho Mirage is a popular golf getaway which would explain its attraction to the soon-to-be ex-golfer-in-chief. By some counts this makes the Obama’s fifth home. Also from Page Six, The Obamas are also said to have bought a holiday getaway in Obama’s childhood home state of Hawaii. How many American families own five of anything, let alone houses? Let alone houses in Hawaii that they see once a year or so. Most of us are blessed if able to rent a hotel room or condo on Hawaii once a decade.

The relocation habits of Democrats leaving office is very interesting.  For example; having been voted out of office in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu didn’t return to Louisiana. She instead made her 7,300-square foot $2.5 million Washington DC mansion her new home. Rather than returning to Little Rock, when Bill and Hill left the White House they chose the liberal, ultra-wealthy haven of Chappaqua New York with its average household income of $285,801 and average household net worth of $1,564,366 for their new residence.

Now it’s the Obama’s turn. Are they going back to Chicago to live amongst the little people and take their chances becoming yet another statistic (total number shot as of this writing this year: 3,961)? No, not so much.

They, like the others, are moving into a private, secured community to live in a house big enough for five families where they will host cocktail parties for golf buddies and other millionaire and billionaire friends.

Yet like the Sanders, Landrieus and Clintons of the world, they will accept exorbitant five-, six-, even seven-figure speaking fees to give speeches about how the rich in our country are steadily pulling away from everyone else and increasingly isolating themselves. About how the concentration of wealth at the top is allowing some Americans to own multiple houses, vacation when and as they please and live lives most of the rest of the country cannot fathom. They’ll blather on and on about how the rich are a big part of the problems in our country. END

The creation of this new elite class of greedy Americans that have rights far beyond the rest of us is wrong. I pray that our new President, for all of the people, will eliminate this elite class of politicians from having special rights. All Americans should have equal rights as our Constitution and Bill of Rights provide. If the laws applied to these elites the Obama’s, Clinton’s, Sander’s, Bush’s and thousands more would be in jail. Unfortunately if us plain folks made money the same way the politicians do we would be in prison.

Sitting here writing this article I was thinking about the task of preparing the necessary information required to be sent to my CPA to prepare my 2016 tax filing. I have a Master’s Degree in Business and there is no way I could possibly fill out the some 50 pages of information required by the IRS each year. I am 86 years old and worked hard for 50 years saving enough to supplement our Federal Entitlement payment that I started paying into when I was eight years old in 1938. I have Neuropathy in both feet and lower legs, bone on bone problems in both knees. I have high blood pressure, severe water retention problems, sleep apnea and take about 25 total pills at 5 different times of the day. My memory is waning and I use notes and an Amazon Echo to help me remember things like I have a dental appointment next Tuesday, I saw the doctor this week, I have blood work week after next and I also help my wife of 56 years remember her requirements.

If I went out and shot a Democratic politician in the butt, plead guilty to save a trial, they would let me  go to prison in East Texas close to where I live because I did not kill him. No more income tax filing, paying for my medicine, good doctors, groceries, and even TV. I would have doctors far better than at the VA as I served nearly 5 years in the US Navy starting at age 17. I am too old to drink, don’t smoke, can’t walk long distances and if you ever reach 86 you will find out there are many more things you used to do that are now impossible. My kids would no longer feel guilty for not visiting much anymore. When I croaked my family would not have to pay to cremate or bury me and my wife might have enough money left to pass on to our kids?

I only used this scenario to make a point as I would never want to ever be away from my partner and wife, Norma, for 56 years. Another misconception I used was I would never find a Democratic politician in East Texas and my legs would not let me drive to Austin, Dallas or Houston where all of the Democrats live in Texas.  C Brewer

ENVIRONMENTAL MADNESS!

One of the most damaging issues in my 85 years has been observing a bunch of tree-hugging wing-nuts wreck American progress to save everything possible. I have never read what threat we face to save the “Snail Darter”. We spent more billions to protect this creature than we spent to defend American lives from real enemies.

They climb trees to save the forest, they protest anything that remotely could improve jobs, the economy and peoples lives like the Keystone pipeline. If we had no pipelines in America it would be an environmental nightmare if all chemical and petroleum products had to be transported by surface methods. The recent railroad spill is a perfect example of how much more damaging and costly a surface accident can be. 98% of all damage to the environment in history has been caused by surface transport. Sadly the zealots, including the EPA and our President foster the unfounded beliefs that plague progress and increase costs to provide products.

President Obama, who currently leads this senseless boondoggle, is the biggest enemy of all Americans since the last looney, Al Gore, finally got rich enough to fade away. When Al needs more money to fuel his private jets and energy wasteful shack he lives in, he will return. By then the Obama’s will hopeful be in Hawaii and adding to their multi-million’s in assets they have amassed. He never really had a regular job other than as a government employee. If you add up all of the government paychecks he has drawn and he never spent a penny his net worth of over seven million would at least create some suspicion that he made a lot of under the table millions.

When you compare this with the Clinton’s he is a total failure as they have amassed ten time as much after saying they were broke just a few months ago. It appears that nationally elected individuals are not required to comply with our tax laws and certain bureaucrats and selective private citizens like Al Sharpton also are not expected to have to abide by the IRS tax laws.

The crowning event that sparked my desire to write this article was the upcoming Presidents trip to Europe to attend the conference on Global Warming. Every creditable scientists has agree that this wasteful effort is nothing but a hoax.

Every major world leader, but one, is more concerned about the bloody actions of the Muslim extremest than if polar bears might suffer if the ice caps melt. Even NASA just announced that the expansion of the size of the ice caps is at record breaking speed.

With the way President Obama expresses concern for the polar bears and seals you would expect him to put his Presidential Library in Alaska rather than Hawaii. Now I will be unwelcome in Alaska but some will love my suggestion in Hawaii currently. When he finds a way to outlaw growing pineapples as an environmental danger he may need to buy a sled when he is forced to join the polar bears. One thing is certain he will never possibly move to Texas unless he hides out in Austin where most Texas wing-nuts reside.

For all of the union members who could have built the Keystone pipeline, vote for Hillary, she will drive away more jobs than Obama for sure. The Clinton’s and the Arabs are in lock step to accelerate the Muslim take over of America. Check the middle east donations to the Clinton Foundation if you doubt my words.

I got a response today on my continuing support for a Trump/Cruz win that if Trump was the nominee of the Republicans he would find someone else to support. That is exactly why we have Obama for two terms. How can anyone with a scintilla of common sense believe this would help anything? C Brewer

DONALD TRUMP – PART THREE

This is the third part of a series to hopefully get American people to decide who to vote for President in next year’s election. If people are satisfied with the march towards Socialism (100% of Democrats are happy now) then they all will vote for the Democratic Candidate even if they were to nominate their “Donkey”. If you are fed up with lies, EPA overkill, Executive Orders that violate the law, a political Supreme Court, a Justice Department that ignores the laws, and a Congress that is deadlocked with stupid then pay attention to my published facts in this series. The next election is the most important election in my 85 years and liking Trump is not the issue. The issue is who else running for President can force our Federal Government to stop dividing Americans and “Unite” us again.

Trump will force a common sense foreign policy and he has publically stated that it must include these specific core principles;

  1. American interests must always come first. No apologies.
  2. Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
  3. Only go to war to win.
  4. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
  5. Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
  6. See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they happen.
  7. Respect and support our present and past warriors.

Trump has been more than outspoken in demanding that captured terrorists must be treated as military combatants, not as criminals. The Obama administration will eventually release them all just so that he can deliver on his commitment to close Guantanamo. Obama could care less where they go except Hawaii where he will retire in Luxury. If he retired tomorrow it would be the only thing he did to benefit America since he was elected.

Trump has been adamant that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He insists that we tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will allow American companies to again be competitive. He will create jobs and provide ways to bring manufacturing back to America. Trump has stated that China is the biggest offender and that America should stop all foreign governments from taking any jobs and manufacturing. Trump cited an example, that Ford is building a plant in Mexico and he intends to require that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if it is destined to be shipped into the U. S. This would force companies like Ford to no longer be competitive by using their Mexican or any other foreign operations to cut costs domestically. This will result in creating American jobs when companies move manufacturing operations back to the good old USA.

Trump will insist that Congress create NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. Trump has insisted that this would break up the OPEC cartel. He intends to allow our energy companies to drill domestically without the myriad of unnecessary government regulations that have been imposed. This will again allow the increase in domestic production that will create jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil that both Obama and Congress have screwed up…

Unless you are blind, deaf or a Democrat you have read or heard that Trump will demand a secure border that is just plain common sense as well as critical for both security and prosperity in America.

Trump will eliminate all Washington roadblocks and build a wall to stop illegals from entering and force Congress and the Justice Department to follow all of our laws that control illegal immigration. Trump has stated (the media has ignored) that he will force Mexico to pay for the wall. The media and both the Democrats and Republicans have ignored that he is one of the most successful business “LEADERS” in America and his business successes.

One more time, who else running for President could or would even try to re-unite America by the actions described in this series? He can stop the Liberal-Progressive objectives to create a Socialist Democracy and destroy our Republic form of government.   C Brewer

FREEDOM – WHAT IS IT WORTH TO YOU?

SPECIAL NEWS BULLETIN!

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed today by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this, fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, in April, 1775.

On July 4th, 1776 these same extremists signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years. ANON

I hope this re-creation of factual American historical events will awaken enough Americans to stop the destruction of our Constitution, Bill of Rights by radical Progressive-Liberal Democrats. President Obama, Eric Holder, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and every Democratic politician are hell bent on following the same path described in the historical events that allowed us to have more freedoms than any civilization in history.

Why do you think 90% of people from all over the world would do anything to live in America? One word remains paramount, “Freedom”. Sane people desire to be able to choose life’s path without government oppression, regulations, waste and excessive taxation. Watching this country destroy itself from within is the saddest thing I have endured in my over 83 years of life.

Obama is doing exactly what he promised, to “Change” our way of life. Unfortunately I want my freedoms to last and seeing Americans driven to hate each other is sickening.

If the Progressive-Liberal Demoncrats maintain control of either the Senate or House in November, Obama will be remembered for leading America to destroy itself as Marx and Lenin predicted a long time ago. Why does he care as he will live out his life in Hawaii. Hawaii will be the first state to be managed by the American Communists Party. Remember this when it happens.

WELFARE ON STEROIDS?

Our brilliant President and his blind mice Democrats in Congress are pushing to get more people into welfare before the 2014 elections. They are pushing for another raise the minimum wage to eliminate poverty.  Every time they do this we end up with more people on welfare as it pays better. Obama has again used an Executive Order to add more costs to all government contracts and none of this nonsense will add one job for an unemployed worker. Going back to work would be a pay cut. When you absorb the following facts even a babbling idiot can see that welfare is a far better way of life than working until they get the minimum wage up to at least $30 an hour. 

 The Cato Institute released a study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states. What is needed is for States to offer free one way tickets for anyone on welfare to move to Hawaii or one of the other top 13 states on the following list.

According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.

Hawaii is the Number one place for the unemployed to relocate, Welfare recipients there earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, for sitting on their butts. If all of the people who earn mimimum wage in states other than the top 13 on the list below would move to one of them, it might wake up the people who pay for welfare.

Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:

1. Hawaii: $60,590

2. District of Columbia: $50,820

3. Massachusetts: $50,540

4. Connecticut: $44,370

5. New York: $43,700

6. New Jersey: $43,450

7. Rhode Island: $43,330

8. Vermont: $42,350

9. New Hampshire: $39,750

10. Maryland: $38,160

11. California: $37,160

12. Oregon: $34,300

13. Wyoming: $32,620

14. Nevada: $29,820

15. Minnesota: $29,350

16. Delaware: $29,220

17. Washington: $28,840

18. North Dakota: $28,830

19. Pennsylvania: $28,670

20. New Mexico: $27,900

21. Montana: $26,930

22. South Dakota: $26,610

23. Kansas: $26,490

24. Michigan: $26,430

25. Alaska: $26,400

26. Ohio: $26,200

27. North Carolina: $25,760

28. West Virginia: $24,900

29. Alabama: $23,310

30. Indiana: $22,900

31. Missouri: $22,800

32. Oklahoma: $22,480

33. Louisiana: $22,250

34. South Carolina: $21,910

Can you imagine how many roads and bridges could be improved with this wasted labor we pay to sit on their butts?

They could pick up trash on our highways.

Some could help remove snow.

All could lick envelopes, empty wastebasket’s, sweep floors, and greet people with a smile for a local, state or federal government office.

Maybe NSA could let them monitor calls.

How many Americans know that roads were paved, National and State Parks were built, TVA dams erected etc. in the 1930’s by the same American families that today are paid not to work?

Welfare is now viewed by our President as a Constitutional right.

Do you think we should reform welfare? I do.

AMERICAN ROYALTY-PART 5

Some republicans in the Senate recently showed some common sense and leadership that is refreshing. Someone in Washington finally acknowledged that the people are fed up with irresponsible spending. They actually blocked the pork laden “omnibus” spending bill and a few actually promised to eliminate “earmarks” in the future.

“Earmarks” are actually a way to hide ridiculous expenditures that are promised to those in their local districts or States so they can get re-elected forever. Another way to elevate themselves to “Royalty” status that we have been revealing.

It was sick to see the Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman, Daniel Inouye D-Hawaii seek support for the “Oinker” from some of the republicans like Thad Cochran R-Mississippi, Robert Bennett R-Utah, and Kit Bond R-Missiouri among others to try to muster 60 votes necessary to stop a filibuster that Jim Dement R-South Carolina and others including some democrats had promised. He was in a hurry as some of his old republican cronies like Bennett, Bond and George Voinovich were not returning to the Senate next year and were immune to worrying about re-election.

Even though Inouye’s measures would have replaced a slightly less expensive bill than the one passed by the House of Representatives. The House bill did not contain earmarks like road and agriculture reasearch projects, water treatment plants and grants for local anti-drug programs. House democrats would have jumped at a chance to accept the Senate version that had $80 million in grants to States and Indian Tribes to preserve pacific salmon and 13 million in clean water grants for Alaska native villages and other rural areas.

The methods utilized by both democrats and republicans to wait until the last two months of a term to pass spending of anything is deplorable. They sit on their hands for 22 months naming courthouses and planning for re-election before they go to work. Why do they do this every cycle?  Because we let them. Who is to blame, we are because we allow them to maintain “Royalty” status.

January will bring an opportunity for the newly elected republican majority in the US House of Representatives. The new Speaker, John Boehner R-Ohio will be the most powerful person in Washington for the next two years. We have all read how the House can stop some of the madness by just not funding the programs like “Obamacare”.

The newly elected majority in the House of Representatives and the real Senate conservatives will be able to even do more by eliminating useless government agencies. Why do we have a Department of Energy and Education for two? They do nothing but interfere with the States and were non-existent for some 200 years. How many of you common people really think that the republicans will actually do anything drastic to reduce the Washington power mismanagement? I don’t think they will do anything significant, just enough to get re-elected. Until we throw them all out and start a third party, nothing will change in the power structure because none of them want to!

For anyone else who is fed up with the “Royalty” status we have in Washington, do something. If you feel incapable then send me any information you feel will help and I will publish verified factual data. I know that I am just one 80-year-old veteran who is fed up, but at least I’m trying my best to stir up as many as I can.

My next part of this series will be to show some more inequities that the “Royal” have over us common Folks. Please send me any examples you might have read to show the differences. I read every article I can find to create these messages.
