LEADERSHIP?

I decided to search for quotes, statements, and positive positions of Senate leaders. I selected the significant news event of Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s retirement to illustrate the positions and concerns of the Senate leaders.   

 

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, with the suave of “Puff the Dragon” and demeanor of the Devil himself stated “the Senate should not vote on a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy this year, an election year”.

Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s “Hardball”, “threatened the Democratic leadership who will have hell to pay with voters if the party fails to block President Donald Trump’s pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy”.

Matthews, The self appointed brains of MSNBC,  “said that because Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, refused to even meet with former President Barack Obama’s pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Democrats have to do everything in their power to stop Trump’s pick from being confirmed.

“I don’t think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy,” Matthews said. “I think they have to fight eye for an eye for what happened in ‘16 where the Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, refused to even consider or even meet with Merrick Garland.” Folks, people like Mathews are the reason we have ZERO cooperation in our government today.
If case you forgot President Obama still had nearly a year remaining in his second term when Justice Scalia was eliminated. McConnell said that the vacancy should not be filled in an election year and that the nominee should be up to the next president. Mathews and Schumer failed to remember that Obama did not wait and nominated Merrick Garland to replace Scalia.

Despite screams and hate filled articles McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to consider Garland and he was not granted a hearing. Instead, the Supreme Court operated with eight justices until Trump took office and nominated Neil Gorsuch.

It appears that McConnell does not intend to follow the precedent set in 2016, saying that the Senate will vote on a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court this fall. That would ensure that Trump’s pick is confirmed by a Republican-controlled Senate, even if the Democrats managed to regain a majority in the election.

Matthews fanning the fires of hate stated that if Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., allows Trump’s nominee to go forward it would anger the party’s core voters.

 

It appears that much of the Democratic leadership agrees with Matthews. Schumer announced on the Senate floor yesterday that “Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016 not to consider a Supreme Court justice in an election year.” “Millions of people are just months away from determining the senators who should vote to confirm or reject the president’s nominee and their voices deserve to be heard now, as Leader McConnell thought they deserved to be heard then.”
“Anything but that would be the absolute height of hypocrisy,” he added.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., cited the “McConnell Standard,” set with his opposition to Garland, as the reason not to consider any nominee until after the midterm election.

Let the cannons be loaded. Not surprisingly, President Trump said the process to replace Kennedy on Supreme Court will ‘begin immediately’

The opposing guns are loaded and the California forces of Senator Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that “the future of our democracy is at stake”. If the war reaches a pitch that the Senators can stir up it will be the best opening in my lifetime to insist that electing Congresspersons be with term limits. These people have elevated themselves to an elite status that must be destroyed.

I fully agree that the future of our democracy is at stake. The people deserve a voice in a decision that will radically alter the course of American justice for decades.What do you think?

FIVE TO FOUR VOTES?

At least our forefathers had the wisdom to create our Supreme Court to have an uneven number of Justices. It has baffled me my entire life how our law schools educate our smartest lawyers to be able to use political reasons to vote on every issue for my 88 years. It is a shame that duels were banished as a way to settle tie votes but I suppose we would run out of lawyers otherwise? This might be a way to assure we never had a tie vote?

 

I wonder how many of the Judges, law clerks and even the news folks involved with the latest issue on travel to and from beautiful places like Somalia. Have you ever been to Somalia? They have been solidly against banning travel and you would think they understand the safety/dangers in this country. How many of these political decisions would have been made if they were made to travel to these places alone for a week to prove everything was safe before ruling it was? It would sure give me some secure feelings to see one of the 9th Court wave or the Hawaiian Judge so certain I would be safe there before I departed. How about you?

 

I have had the occasion to visit the Muslim world from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia. I did not use the word pleasure as little pleasure exists for Americans in most Muslim countries. I can assure you none of my visits were in the countries specified by President Trump’s travel ban. What idiot American would visit in the countries or wish to have a visitor from the same countries other than family.

 

I still wonder why we allow anyone in the world to emigrate to America when we know for certain they will never become Americans. A true Muslim cannot ever become an American and these liberal judges know this or should know they will never accept our pledge of allegiance.  

 

The three female Justices of the Supreme Court who voted to allow these threats to the safety of just one American should be ashamed. They can hate our President, despise conservative Americans and spit on the flag but when they openly vote for political reasons they should be impeached as Justices.

 

What are your feelings as an American citizen?

TRUMP’S DECORUM IN QUESTION??


I received this from my friend, Wally Kittman and and I decided to share it hoping for feedback from any possible Progressive Liberal who can understand the exchange.  Wally stated it was originally written & published on July 17, 2017 by Evan Sayet. He stated there are copies attributing it to Dr. Marshall Kamena, the onetime mayor of Livermore, but that’s incorrect. This is the original.  Enjoy, pass it on and comment if you feel it’s worthy of such. C Brewer

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s.   To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.  It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.  While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.  Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.  Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.   Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch.  In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

TRUMP IS FIGHTING.  AND WHAT’S PARTICULARLY DELICIOUS IS THAT, LIKE PATTON STANDING OVER THE BATTLEFIELD AS HIS TANKS OBLITERATED ROMMEL’S, HE’S SHOUTING, “YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARDS, I READ YOUR BOOK!”  THAT IS JUST THE ICING ON THE CAKE, BUT IT’S WONDERFUL TO SEE THAT NOT ONLY IS TRUMP FIGHTING, HE’S DEFEATING THE LEFT USING THEIR OWN TACTICS.



THAT book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.   It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN.  He made it personal. Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position.  With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat. They need to respond.  This leaves them with only two choices.

They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.  It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s, church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

This makes “going high” a non-starter for CNN.  This leaves them no other option but to ratchet up the fake news, conjuring up the next “nothing burger” and devoting 24 hours a day to hysterical rants about how it’s “worse than Nixon.”

This, obviously, is what CNN has chosen to do.  The problem is that, as they become more and more hysterical, they become more and more obvious.  Each new effort at even faker news than before and faker “outrage” only makes that much more clear to any objective observer that Trump is and always has been right about the fake news media.

And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes.   Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.

Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme.  This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him.  If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.

Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.

This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?  Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights.

Do you have time to add your comments, questions, accusations, lies or facts you would like to share?  I pray that God and Trump can and will save America before I croak.. C Brewer

JUSTICE IN AMERICA – PART THREE!

 My great  friend Peter Forest sent me this collection of activities within our Justice System that add reasons why the “Swamp” needs to be drained. If anyone knows who compiled this acceptable behavior for government employees that would put citizens in prison please let me know so I can give credit? At least some government employees worked well together and are still working together. Going to prison together will only happen if Trump is not eliminated. A danger of messing with the Clintons.

Is there just a little corruption in DC? Read this. It explains all.

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this timeframe???

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009.

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

Ok, no big deal right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?

Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

No other than, Lois Lerner.

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

No other than James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Thanks Peter, this should make waves but you will never see this connected in the “mainstream Media”.   C Brewer

JUSTICE IN AMERICA – PART TWO!

JUDGES NOW RULE EVERY PHASE OF AMERICAN LIVES!

Now the individual Federal Judges have expanded their authority to further burden Americans with rulings that impact the life of native citizens. I decided to write this article as a continuance of my last posting.

The recent flood of actions by our Federal Judges indicate they are now taking turns trying to make average Americans foot the bill and help the Liberal-Progressives Democrats race to Socialize our freedoms. The headlines are a George Bush nominated Federal Judge now challenges Trump’s actions. George Bush was as deeply Progressive as George Soros.

 I have the continued hope that this article along with my last article, “Justice in America” would help motivate freedom loving American citizens to awaken. Folks, many of our elected, hired and appointed Government Employees are slowly increasing their power by clever and covert actions.

These actions are totally hidden from the natural-born American citizens with the billions of dollars from people like George Soros noted in the last article. Coupled that with the fact that our national media is owned by industrial wealth that must have cheap labor to maintain their wealth. The previous wealthy Barons who milked their wealth and created the Great Depression lost their grasp of power during WWII when a middle class was created. This event was the first time average Americans had better lives.

The latest news is an announcement that a third Federal Judge had issued a decree to reverse Trump’s cancelling of the Obama DACA program. Again another Federal Judge is to pressured, threatened or paid off to protect more illegals from deportation while unlawfully gaining citizenship.

I also noted in my last blog that “Lady Justice has been depicted wearing a blindfold”. It appears that our entire Justice System now wears a bandit’s mask to hide the covert actions to make the laws instead of Congress. Today the mask is used to hide the fact that the Justice System and the powerful in America have been trying to eliminate the more populated middle class from control of the country instead of the Progressive elite.  If the original blindfold represented impartiality, the ideal would be a Justice System that guaranteed the laws would be applied without regard to wealth, power, or other status.

In no way am I trying to free Congress from their full responsibility to make our laws. They have instituted procedures from within to shelter themselves from responsibility and ensure actions of the Justice and Presidential powers are lawfully enacted. We have a three-legged government with different responsibilities. What has happened is we the people have let each leg expand its powers to cause this power struggle to ever happen. Because of this power struggle refinement to the equal legs of our government need to be adjusted. The primary reason for this imbalance is “Tenure”.

Our forefathers designed what they perceived as a perfect system of a Democratic Republic. This system has lasted longer than any form of Government in the Earth’s history. Unfortunately our freedoms have produced scholars to argue both the value and dangers of our form of government. The powers of each side have forgotten that our government is supposed to be controlled by a vote of the people. The mess we have today is the fault of the people for allowing the use of illegals, the poor and the mindless to be used as a power base.

The people must insist that term limits be initiated for members of Congress. Congress placed term limits on the Presidential powers. What must be another change is the tenure of Federal Judges including the Supreme Court. Dishonesty abounds today that our President calls the “Swamp”. He operates so far without any media support, without full Congressional support and what now appears to be a covert challenge by a biased Justice System, Congress and the media, hell-bent to remove him from office. There are three apparent scenarios to debate;

 

  1. Should anyone in our government have lifetime tenure in America today?

  2. Should election to Congress be a lifetime job?

  3. Should our President or the Federal Courts, including the Supreme Court, be able to make or change the laws of the land?  

 

If you could not answer “NO” to each question please share with us why by commenting on this posting?

AMERICAN JUSTICE?

Justice in America has degraded over my entire 87 years. I read many definitions and how Justice has emerged over the centuries. The following will back up my assessment of Justice in America and hopefully arouse enough Americans to demand that our laws are enforced instead of ignored.

Lady Justice is most often depicted with a set of scales typically suspended from her left hand, upon which she measures the strengths of a case’s support and opposition. The scales represent the weighing of evidence, and the scales lack a foundation in order to signify that evidence should stand on its own.

Since the 16th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents impartiality, the ideal that justice should be applied without regard to wealth, power, or other status.

A 2006 issue of Rolling Stone proclaimed TIME TO GO!, focusing on the perceived corruption that dominated Congress. The drawing showed a bunch of figures evoking reactionary politics emerging from the Capitol. One of the figures was Lady Justice lifting her blindfold, implying that the then-composition of Congress had politicized the criminal justice system.

The last distinctive feature of Lady Justice is her sword. The sword represented authority in ancient times, and conveys the idea that justice can be swift and final.

Folks I lived through the J Edgar Hoover FBI operations that has never been completely recorded for historical reasons. We will never know how many people he had control over with facts they could not stay in power if exposed. Those years established what is currently the modern government “Swamp”. If enough Americans would just study our current justice system and band together and demand all laws will be enforced until Congress removes them.

Currently we appear to have not only the FBI comedy performance by its leaders but the entire Justice department appears to be politically owned by the Democrats and Republicans in name only (RINO’s). The Robert Mueller investigation is so overtly functioning to get Donald Trump ousted as President, sadly with the media help that is so biased it stinks.

 Our current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has demonstrated he is totally inept as a leader of a Boy Scout troop. He has covertly usurped Trump with his questionable ethics working with McConnell and Ryan to allow Mueller to keep functioning until he digs up enough to try to get Trump impeached. Ryan is smart enough to get out of Washington before the people demand changes to force the entire government to have “NO BIAS” or resign. This is the only way to drain the swamp.

Why on earth does our Justice Department stand by as cities and states ignore our laws and laugh at the Federal government that does nothing? People like Jerry Brown, Rahm Emanuel and the rest of lawless politicians flaunt the laws just to please the illegals and the lawless for votes so they can hold office and amass fortunes from the criminals.

President Trump needs to fire Session’s and clean house at the Justice Department. The political bias in the Justice Department is totally unacceptable.

The people need to know a lot more about the bias openly demonstrated by the Supreme Court. We have one Constitution and one Bill of Rights. These laws are created and administered by Congress. The President approves and can veto them but Congress can override a veto if they desire. Today it would be unlikely as Congress is so divided. It make me sick to watch the Supreme Court make every decision based on political favor rather than the law. The Progressive Democrats have created two Americas and with the endless supply of money from people like George Soros they are closing in on total chaos that will end in another civil war if someone can’t stop the movement.  

If Progressive Democrats and disgruntled RINO’s do try to impeach Trump and succeed, we the people are the losers. It is time for we the people to make enough noise to wake  up the good politicians, force the initiation of term limits and force every government agency and employee who is elected, appointed or hired to sign a pledge to never let politics be a factor. Violation would be automatic termination and being banned from serving in any government activity or companies that operate with government contracts for their lifetime.

Looking back, these idiotic practices of lawless actions has made our entire Government operations reprehensible. It is the people’s fault as we elect and re-elect the same thieves year after year after year. They will disappear if we want them to, some to prison others trained to do honest work.

OUR BIGGEST ENEMY IS OUR GOVERNMENT!

Prove me wrong?

Watching and reading the news, possibly deeper than most,  has proven to me that all of our government agencies have been unlawfully using security classifications to hide facts from the people. We get to see what they want us to see and this must be investigated.

Hiding anything from the public by every government agency is the scariest event in my lifetime. It is also factual that the major networks and publishers use innuendos, evasive methods to modify the news to fit their political propaganda objectives. I have lost trust in the news from television, radio and all newspapers and rely on the internet to keep me informed. Watching President Trump use the internet to express his positions has been refreshing. He obviously had some of the same concerns when he referred to Washington DC as a swamp that needed draining. He has been systematically addressing specific concerns and has chosen to express his positions openly. His actions to criticize the media when they spew propaganda is evident. His bold actions about the honesty of our own government has been refreshing.   

Anyone who questions the clandestine unlawful actions by our own government is either blind, deaf, dead or a Socialist, Democratic Progressive. This definition also describes the upper level leadership in all or nearly all current government agencies. When the Department of Justice (DOJ) becomes the most questionable agency we have, America is in deep trouble. Even more troubling is when the Justice Department uses security classification to hide their actions from Congress and the President. Save this article and watch this unfold as it can’t be hidden forever. It appears that our current Attorney General Sessions has been gagged by his own people for a reason we will never know. What prompted me to write this article was an article written by Chuck Ross for the Washington Journal Friday. I will use some of his statements to reveal what motivated me to spend this Sunday writing this article instead of watching the final round of The Masters Golf Tournament.  


“The Department of Justice says it will allow members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees to view surveillance warrants granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in what the agency is calling an “extraordinary accommodation.”

DOJ is allowing the access to the four warrant applications in response to demands from California Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence”.

These revelations should be very troubling for any American who loves our “Freedoms”. I can’t fathom how or why the DOJ can hide any document, even politically misused actions, from the Congressional oversight committees. This mistrust within our entire government operations is deeply troubling. Analyze the next quote from Mr Ross.     

“Nunes threatened earlier this week to take legal action if the DOJ did not provide all committee members access to the four Page warrants, which were issued in 2016 and 2017 by judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court. Nunes also demanded that the FBI hand over an internal document known as an Electronic Communication (EC), which laid out the basis for the bureau’s investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government”

“WOW”. A Congressional committee may have to sue the DOJ for what must be classified “Top Secret” for some scary reason, WHY?  The referenced, “Ross” article revealed that there was a subpoena issued to review the secret documents last August 24th from Chairman Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee. The DOJ and the FBI  have not provided the documents yet.


The Ross article revealed that the DOJ has allowed two members of the House Intelligence Committee to view the FISA warrants.  Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Trey Gowdy have reviewed the documents. Nunes sent four request in February to permit all members if the Intelligence Committee to review the Secret documents and his requests were declined. Another request has produced the following reply from assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to Nunes Friday and is quoted from the Ross article;

“The Department considers this an extraordinary accommodation based on unique facts and circumstances. We are also extending this review opportunity to the members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence,” the letter continues.

“Nunes set a deadline of April 11, next Wednesday, to provide a copy of the Electronic Communication”.

Can you imagine how many more government agencies use Security Classification to hide information from Congress, the Media and the people?Inspector Generals.

I recently read that the Inspector General within the DOJ has over 400 people to make sure operations are within the law. If this is an example there must be over ten thousand

Government employees making sure everything that happens in the entire government is lawful. The same Inspector General for the DOJ and his 400 plus people have been reviewing the Clinton computer and cell phone debacle for over a year. The Mueller investigation of the Russian involvement in the last election is the closest example of bias I have ever observed.  Fueled by the media it may last until they all die.

As most of the people who I worked with for 27 years in Aerospace for a company now part of Lockheed-Martin have passed away I will justify my knowledge of the security issues. I had security clearance for most of those years and spent many years with a Top Secret Crypto approval.  

Watching our government operate these past few years has been a lesson on what not to do. The size of every agency seems to grow faster than our increase in citizens. When you see what we spend on illegals you can should be see why every agency grows. Some States now encourage illegals and prison inmates to vote to keep the the Socialist Progressive Democrats in power. I believe that at least 90% of all government employees are near rabid liberal Democrats. This is why we need more rabid conservatives to make up the government function on an even basis.

Trump has stayed on the path he promised to clean up what he called the swamp. What he has flushed out are many known as “Republican in Name Only” or “Rinos”. The biggest surprise for me it was John McCain who helped the Democrats keep Obamacare alive. If Trump stays on his promised path and the Rino’s keep voting with the Democrats it may stop the swamp draining. The only hope to keep America a Republic is for the people to finally force a vote for term limits in Congress. If that fails America will be Socialist on or before 2030 which will be my 100th year, dead or alive.

Do you agree or disagree, share your reasons why?

TRUMP’S FIRST BIG MISTAKE!

I have supported our President since he announced his intention to seek the office. The reason for my decision was that he was only the second American from a major political group to seek the office who was not a career politician. The other was Dwight Eisenhower who was also the first person I was able to vote for to be President a long time ago. I had spent over four years in the Navy, three and a half on active duty. I was Married with one daughter and one on the way when I cast my first vote for anything.

Now we have Americans voting at 18 that can’t add 2 + 2, ignored by society or preparing to enter a college or University. After four years of being taught to ignore the Constitution, how to spit on or burn our flag, hate our military and demonstrate before they graduate. This has been happening long enough now to divide the people and spew hate in every direction. The hate in America appears to have reached a crescendo that will end with another civil war if Trump fails.

Watching every move Trump had promised to do, several have ended up squashed by Congress, the political driven Supreme court or the Demoncratic Secret Society. These groups have funded protest for everything possible and are corrupting every Federal Agency including the FBI, the State Department and likely every arm of Government. The media is using every event to stir up Americans with fake news, hysterical lies, innuendos to motivate the young people to riot, damage property and hate our country.

Trump has been systematically doing things he promised in the months of bloodthirsty and savage campaigning. He has started draining the swamp as promised while having to fight both the Republican and Democratic losers who have nearly led and managed America to bankruptcy and third world stature.

Much to my surprise he has now attacked one of the most innovative and expertly managed companies since Sam Walton started Sam’s Clubs and Walmart. He has, for some strange reason, mounted an attack on Amazom.com for taking advantage of a contract with the Postal Service. If he has a problem with Jeff Bezos he should attack what Amazon has done wrong. I doubt the Amazon folks took advantage of an agency that has never made a profit in history. President Trump should have avoided the Postal Service, Tennessee Valley Authority and Amtrac when starting a fight with anyone about failure. He should be trying to privatize these perennial failures and eliminate the losses written off every year. If he is jealous of Bezos wait until he is no longer President. He should be trying to get Amazon to modernize every government agency that exists and save us Trillions by “Doing the Right Things Right the First Time”. This was the slogan for my companies

If the truth were known I imagine the contract Amazon has with the Postal Service was sought after by the USPS? Before he attacked by backstabbing Amazon he should have asked some questions.How many people did the USPS employ just to do the increased Amazon workload.

If it was none, what were the people doing before the added work?

If it was 2,000 new people, what will they do if the Amazon contract is ended? My guess is nothing, what is your guess?

Of all the recent new companies Amazon operations and leadership should be used to teach our Government how to be successful. I doubt Amazon has a pension program that allows people to retire after 20 years service. I spent 27 years, 25 in management, for a major corporation. I did leave them to improve my family’s life but had my 27 years been in management for a Government Agency I could have retired at 47 instead of 63 and be enjoying my 40th year of a fat Government pension. Instead I retired at 65 with the 27 years of service. I have drawn $221.47 each month for 22 years now with zero, none, nada other benefits.  

If “Joe American” working in any position similar to a Government worker had any idea the difference he will get in pension benefits there would be Hell to pay explaining why. I hope President Trump will keep his focus to level the playing field and adjust the Government employee benefits to match private industry. Leave Amazon alone unless they break the law. Get the FBI honest and make every Government agency out there justify their existence. Start with the USPS as I feel certain any successful business in America could make a profit managing them in less than two years. I know I could if I had the funding.

POLITICS – DESTROYING AMERICA FROM WITHIN!

I waited until Easter Sunday to publish this hoping someone can explain why most leaders are causing this horrible event and fighting our President, Donald Trump from trying to heal the wounds. Our media has now become the trash and supporter of hate, up-evil and every way they can cause damage, destruction and even death for others. Our Congress is rotten, the Judiciary system is rife with political power that overrides the law even at the Supreme Court. Every day the two largest political organizations draw lines in the sand for battle and the only man trying to heal all of the wounds is being made the most hated man in America and he is the only leader trying to stop the hate and “Make America Great Again”. Someone one please tell me “WHY,WHY,WHY”.  For Gods Sake folks will there ever be another chance before “Civil War Two?

Clyde Brewer   

One of my grandsons and some of his friends sent me some unique thoughts about politics. As many people who read my articles know I am sick of 24/7/365 where politics has taken over the media and only major tragedies and the weather interrupt constant politics. These young men have been having forums and debates and allowed me to use these issues to frame my thoughts.

The First issue they agreed on was “every politician is a corporate whore”. I can’t disagree in full but there are a few, who try hard to blaze new trails but the seniority power system is so powerful they have little or no voice. Unless they have been in Congress  for 24 years they are just followers. Congress, an astute body of elected officials, believe they are “royalty”. One of President Trump’s greatest challenges will be to convince these people they work for the people instead of being Rulers of anyone but themselves. Basically they believe they are above the law, like Charles Rangel, who would get re-elected if he was in prison or dead. The people know he is a crook but who cares if he steals and cheats for them too.

The second issue they discussed was, “campaign finance law basically exists to be super vague to keep out 3rd parties and disguise or totally hide where all politicians money is coming from”. “They feel that only the politicians themselves truly know who each they owe favors to. They concluded that it has to be far more people, usually a lot of people. The consensus was it was definitely influencing policy. They agreed that with Donald Trump we know exactly where his money comes from and it will be difficult for army of lobbyist/backers to be able to manipulate Trump. They concluded that this is reflected in some policy positions he has promised, like the changes to the tax code to close loopholes, that he knows as well as anyone, because he’s used them himself for decades. This analogy by these young men is impressive and zeros in on many of the changes that must be made to give them the freedoms and opportunity  I have enjoyed for nearly 88 years.

The third issue they had consensus was the traits of successful leaders. Their discussions ranged a historical figure you admire, to a great coach and the leaders including they have studied and they really admired. They typically singled out those who are straightforward and honest with their people. They admired the ones who speak their mind and stand up for what they believe in, are open minded but firm in their convictions, and tend to shine when making difficult decisions.

Sadly they see that today the traits necessary to be a politician are directly opposite. They concluded that to be a successful politician today you have to be covert in expressing your true thoughts and motives when they’re controversial instead of providing people what they really want. They believe politicians purposely avoid tough decisions like the plague and only stand for what no one is opposed to. As an example look at political debates, most of the politicians evade direct responses to every questions. Most just talk and talk and say nothing. Trump has no trouble expresses himself legitimately to say exactly what he thinks. They feel he seems honest, even when what he expresses is unexpected. He has no concerns that some people aren’t going to like what he has to say. They conclude that Trump answers every question in the debates, with refreshing responses.

It appears that the consensus agreed that Trump is open minded. Even though Trump was once a Democrat, just like I was, now he’s running as a  Republican They feel he’s still very liberal on a large number of issues and I can’t agree with their term “very liberal. I am about four paces to the right of Attila-the-Hun but Trump’s promise to clean up the Washington swamp is worth allowing some liberal flexibility.

They feel the Comedy Central roast proved he was a good sport about it. He’s clearly capable of laughing at himself, which implies he’s aware he may be wrong at times. Any honest person will admit they are not perfect

These young men don’t think he’s racist at all, though he’s definitely more worried about terrorism than they feel is warranted. This is one point where they are completely wrong. I agree with their assessment that he is brash and they are not interested in having him as a friend.

They feel that George W. Bush seemed like a genuinely nice guy and we invaded two countries, Obama seems like a genuinely nice guy and NSA spying and drone strikes are at an all time high. Maybe being a nice guy isn’t that important to running a country. In reality both Bush and Obama are Progressives but Bush is not as socialistic as Obama.

I agree with their conclusion that Trump has been the victim of gotcha journalism and misquotation or out of context quotation by both the Demoncrats and the GOP. We agree that most politicians don’t like what he really stands for as the entire Washington cabal is so scared they are shaking in their boots.

Another issue has been his statements that made the front page recently on the internet that were wildly misrepresented. He was asked specifically about ISIS’ ability to recruit online and was talking about trying to take steps to limit that. To me it was obvious from what he said that he doesn’t know much about the Internet, but to me what he said about “get with Bill Gates” that was so heavily mocked here was pretty clear in context, that he was saying he wants to meet with experts in the field and see what our options are. As much as he has been ripped they thought he was making a point mentioning Gates. Trump knows Bill Gates politically, and how liberal he is, and I think was implying it’s a non-partisan issue and showing the angle they’d take, which was what the next line mocking people crying about freedom of speech was about. Trump knows Bill Gates is the last guy on earth who would want to filter the Internet and restrict freedom, that’s his point in dropping his name.

They seem far more concerned with the similar statements, from a more informed position, that Hillary and Obama have already made concerning freedoms and spying on the Internet.

My grandson, Landon Miller, provided me with the feelings of a group of young men in their late 20’s. I hope Landon will give any credits to others by listing them in comments after this article is posted. Although they may be neophytes, they show some real courage and challenge that really surprised this old man. I have never tried to influence my children, grandchildren or great grandchildren politically but to be the best at whatever they choose to do with their lives. All of them are not aligned with me totally and I served over five years in the US military defending their, mine and every Americans rights to free speech and political leanings.  C Brewer

This article was written over two years ago and I had decided to wait a while to publish it. I would challenge these young men  to get together and see if they still have the same feelings and outlooks today. If they accept I will publish unedited as a part two to the subject.

It would interesting to have some young liberals express their comments and possibly send me why they disagree with this message. I will also post their comments unedited. My intent to get both sides of the issues as America is being destroyed from within. This is sad to watch for this old man who has seen America work together in World War ll and then start the destruction movement in the 1960’s with the Clinton’s and other dissidents stirred up by Communists Professors in our universities.  C Brewer

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

PREACHING TO THE CHOIR

My friend, Ron Jenkins, who has also traveled the world during his Air Force career is a wonderful writer. He stays abreast of the major happenings and has a solid conservative mind. He submitted this deeply common sense article to a newspaper in San Antonio where he lives. He has given me the option to print his work on my blog every time he writes anything. He bores into his work with great analysis of whatever subject that motivates his interest. I am proud to post his work on my blog so others can agree or disagree  with facts.                      Clyde Brewer

PREACHING TO THE CHOIR 

Mass shootings: causes and solutions.  Unfortunately, there are as many causes for these horrific shootings as there are are individuals with a cause or a gripe or an issue or with a mental problem.  No single solution can  solve the crime of killing your fellow man (or woman), in a nation where the ownership of a weapon is a right and is virtually unrestricted and unlimited, to any citizen, except to those with a felony conviction.  As gun owner, a marksman, a hunter, a former military member and a concerned citizen, I am leaning toward the enhancement of restrictions on legal, as well as illegal, gun ownership.  
We all know that the main reason we lock our house or car, is to foil a non-professional criminal.  Similarly, no single approach to gun control is going to succeed in preventing the acquisition of a firearm by an otherwise “normal” person, who may have a mental, emotional coping and adjustment problem.  There should to be a coordinated public effort to encourage family members, friends and relatives, to seek and receive help from the legal (law enforcement), medical and psychiatric communities.    
I accept that the 2nd Constitutional Amendment allows the people of this nation to bear arms.  Unfortunately, for well over 200 years, the changes in technology, society and the makeup of a highly diverse populace, have dictated that changes to the law of the land, should be enacted, from a common sense point of view. Therefore, the US Congress must develop a national policy and a series of laws that apply to all 50 states. These laws must apply to all US residents, citizen or alien, adult, minor and/or felon.  It must be a national effort because the mish mash of 50 diverse state laws, cannot help but create loop holes and exceptions, as well as jurisdictional issues, across state and national borders.
Our collective local, state and federal governments must ensure that only responsible legal, sane, adult citizens are licensed to buy, own and use, any and all fire arms.  With every right comes an equal responsibility.
Ron Jenkins
