This old 88 year old began his career in Quality Control in 1952. Quality Control was a new name for “Inspection” when they blended Inspection with Statistics and a new Department was born. The Inspection function, was made an independent activity during WWII, that separated inspection from manufacturing. The reason was more of a safety issue to help protect the military from human errors in a critical World War.
I helped input and still have a copy of the first Quality Control Manual created for Temco Aircraft Corporation. I was involved with the incorporation of statics and the inspection function. Quality Control gained stature with a Director who reported directly to the President. This type of Quality Control Department is still not active in the small US business world unless it is mandated by the customer. One exception might be if the company had been fined or caused human fatalities that resulted in excessive legal costs. Most just decided on closure and/or bankruptcy.
In the late 1950’s along came NASA and another gain for the Quality professional, I had advanced to the then title of General Foreman of Inspection. The company name had been changed to Ling Temco with no advancement in management reporting or title. In i960 we acquired Chance Vought Aircraft and the company was known as Ling-Temco-Vought or LTV. In the middle 1960’s the company decided to build a separate plant for missiles and space programs and I spent the next 16 years as Manager of administration or all testing functions. At age 47 I completed a Master of Science degree and a proud 3.92 GPA. NASA over the years had been able to remove the name “Control” as we actually controlled nothing but ourselves. NASA also combined Quality, Safety and Reliability into one department. A giant step for the quality function.
My last two years with LTV I served as dead end Manager of Quality Planning with no chance of advancement after two suffering years completing my Masters Degree.
In 1978 I was offered a position with Otis Engineering, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Halliburton Corporation. This was a significant stature and responsibility promotion for me. My title was Director of Quality for a company with sales of eight billion annually and I reported to the President and had to have my departmental operating plan presented and approved by the Halliburton Board of Directors annually. My need was the first Quality Program Requirement instituted by the Department of the Interior for design, fabrication and testing for Surface and Sub-Surface Safety Valves and named SPPE-1/-2 used in US offshore oil and gas wells. This program introduced a totally new form of Quality for the oil and gas industry. This program was a derivative of NQA-1/-2 created for the Nuclear industry earlier, This was like taking a still inspection industry far beyond itself into the NASA/Nuclear world in one giant leap. This leap was a common giant step for all suppliers. During my time with Otis my department required over 425 employees worldwide
This was a new leap for me as instead of dealing with Air Force, Navy, Army or Nasa the agency that managed the Nuclear and SPPE programs was the American Society for Mechanical Engineers or ASME. This was only the second program that was ever required deal with third party agencies instead of Government agencies. This form of Quality functioned through a committee structure that was responsible for its operation. Operating as ASME Committees the structure was a Representative for what as named the Main Committee and there were committees for Surface Safety Valves, Sub-service Safety Valves, A Quality Committee and a Committee for Testing. Each Committee had a member from the ASME, a member from the Department of the Interior, am member from the manufacturer of each device, a member from the testing organization and a member from the public, Each committee elected a Chairman and a Secretary and meetings were scheduled quarterly. These meetings rotated and usually lasted 4 days. In addition the Chairman of the Main Committee, the ASME Director of Accreditation, the Department of the Interior representative met semi-annually in Reston Virginia and at ASME headquarters in New York City.
These two programs were the beginning of the current ISO third party, accreditation and registration programs that began later as ISO 9000-1/-2 Requirements that began in the late 1980’s. For credibility reasons I was chairman of both the Main and Quality Committees for over 5 years. Two as the Manufacturer representative and three as the Public representative as I left the Halliburton Cooperation after 5 years to further my career in Quality Training and Consulting that lasted eleven more years before I retired in 1994.
My remaining eleven years of Quality work was both public and in-house training on three continents with a partner for the first several years, Richard, Dick, Kleckner, We trained some 40,000 individuals in both Quality System Auditing and familarism with the ISO 9000 Standards This took us to four Countries and likely 25 states and we also had a special Auditor program for the airline industry that trained people from every airline in the free world. We both had separate Consulting businesses and we did several programs together for some of the larger industries/airlines including an in-depth audit of Eastern Airlines shortly before it went bankrupt.
Another join venture was the forming of a company in 1990 to be accredited to issue ISO 9001/-2 registrations. Quality Systems Registrar, QSR, became the first American owned company to be Accredited to issue ISO Certificates. QSR is still in business with over 400 customers. Being smaller than the giants of Registration we have always limited our size to make sure we can develop bonding relationships and some of our customers have been with us since our Accreditation. I still serve as a member of our Board of Governors that assure credibility to QSR’s operation. There may still be other Quality professionals still functioning that are my age but all of the giants of Quality like Dr Juran, Dr. Demming, Phil Crosby for a few were acquaintances or friends have long ago departed. The only other friend still working is Hank Farlander, another Dallas friend I first met when I was Chairman of the Dallas Chapter of what was still the ASQC in the early 1980’s,
My reason for taking the time to create this article is I am now watching the Quality leadership of today slowly destroy all of the barriers I helped remove to gain stature for the Quality Profession and the Quality Professional. I tried hard to not create a book but without explaining the wars I helped fight for stature many Quality professionals have no idea how hard it was to gain stature for a function that adds no value to the large companies except improved operations and reduced waste. In my career I worked in twenty three countries, visited in nine more and worked forty nine States. In my last eleven years I flew over 3,000,000 miles and spent over 2200 nights traveling. I started or help start nine different businesses in 4 countries.
I wrote this a few weeks ago and sure enough the following events are unfolding. Greed finally tripped up the leaders as predicted.
Watching today’s accreditation organizations like the ANAB, an AQC subsidiary, join with the foreign accreditation bodies keep trying to expand responsibilities for Quality into risk management, and other fields that will fail eventually when the costs of Accreditation and Registration exceed the increasing beyond any possible savings will kill the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg. When the last cycle of increased costs were introduced a couple of years ago I tried to warn the ANAB they were swimming in uncharted waters and I was ignored. If the AQC does not make certain the top leadership is aware of the shark filled waters Quality as a profession will get the first self inflicted black eye in my 65 plus years. I doubt that the AQC will have the honesty to print this article and at least generate discussion to prove me a wingnut or get some sanity involved before the bloodbath begins. I have nothing to lose or gain as my days are numbered. I just can’t believe the wild intrusions into other areas like design are an act of wisdom.

My friend, Don Dukes, sent me the following article and like myself, Don was born during the American depression in the 1930’s. This basic description of an American was closer aligned to life before the 1960’s and Lyndon Johnson’s acts to create another “Civil War”. Reading this gave me a rush of pride that was intended by the unnamed author who has failed to describe what has happened to American freedoms over my lifetime. This article is being posted on my blog today word for word.
As I am recovering from knee surgery it may be awhile before I complete a part two article. I will explain how the powerful in America are trying to eliminate the middle class which has neutered their power over the past 60 years. Folks, America has a political power war today that only the Americans can settle. It may be another Civil War and if you would like ro send me your comments, questions suggestions regarding America today, just comment on this posting or request my E address. C Brewer
I did and you may missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American; any American.
Australian Dentist Response
So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)
‘An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.
An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navajo, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.
An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.
An American is also free to believe in no religion…… For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.
An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.
The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God-given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.
An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking anything in return………
When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!
As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These, in fact, are the people who built America.
Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
So you can try to kill an American if you must.. Hitler did. So did General Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other bloodthirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.
Please keep this going! Pass this around the World .Then pass it around again. It says it all, for all of us. Please do not just delete. Pass it on first!
The political divide we have in America today is the most serious event that has reared its ugly head in my 88 years of being born a free American male. Until the uprising between Americans began, because of the war in Vietnam, America had normal instead of serious problems with race, equality and even immigration issues. Internal issues have been the major reason for every country failure that has happened in history. At this point America’s second Civil War preparations actually are underway with programmed events that seem to force the hatred and increased civil disobedience in far too many places. States and Cities are now openly ignoring Federal Laws and inciting citizens to destroy property and maim or kill each other.
America’s first internal battle with itself was the Civil War in the 1860’s. Approximately 620,000 soldiers died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease during America’s first Civil War with itself to settle the Slavery issue. Even with the war, no outside country attempted to attack America during its recovery. The saddest thing happening again is the division of families where brothers and sisters detest their fathers/mothers and even other brothers/sisters. The scariest fact is that this had not happened again in my lifetime until the mainstream media started fanning the fires to incite civil strife, assisted by Government employees leaking fake news and hoping for open warfire now.
I have grandchildren and possibly other family that have no desire to be associated or let great grandchildren even know I exist because of political beliefs. That’s “HATE”.
I am not alone and wish to share an exchange between a friend and his son who shall remain unknown. These exchanges show how diverse politics can be. Unfortunately one can see the hope for a Trump failure and the wisdom of the father hoping to calm diverse feelings.
Son.. Today has been quite a whirlwind day for the Trump inner circle. Two close, former allies, admitting and being convicted by a jury, of federal crimes.
Dad.. Messrs Cohen and Manafort convicted! Do their convictions change what I think about POTUS?
I never thought Trump was a choir boy or someone who preferred sack cloth to Harris tweed.
As an “entrepreneur” and world class business person, it is unlikely that he had no skeletons in his closet.
As someone who was on the verge of building a grand hotel in Moscow, he made all sorts of connections with Russians. And, one assumes, that he knew or should have known, that these Russian connections were most likely agents of the KGB or whatever the alphabet soup of Soviet security organizations that are included in the KGB orbit.
His decision to run for the Presidency was a known risk, that he decided to take.
What drives a man like “The Donald”? Ambition, ego, greed and all the rest of the flaws that a businessman would collect, in an effort to make and keep a million or a billion dollars! What I think is that more than 60 million American voters pulled the lever for him despite his flaws and baggage. Has he made mistakes, well duh!!
What did we expect….the perfection of political correctness?
How many political friends or insiders did he know or have as friends, during his business career and how many appointments did he have to make to populate his government? He had to rely upon the advice and counsel of others, almost exclusively to make hundreds of appointments, of people he didn’t know. That’s what happens when someone from outside the Washington Swamp gets elected, to try and drain some of the contaminated water, he quickly finds himself in chest deep. He appointed Jeff Sessions as AG as a reward for prior support and loyalty; however, that was not a good decision. Sessions should now resign, before Trump is forced to fire him. The reason Sessions cited for recusing himself was inappropriate, as was the basis for his action, because there was no conflict of interest.
If he remains healthy, i’ll be amazed. The pressure on him to say and do the right things at every occasion, at every meeting, at every opportunity, must be overwhelming. Yet, he volunteered! No one pushed him, other than his own alter-ego!! As for Manafort, specifically, his convictions were well deserved. However, the crimes were for activities well before he joined the Trump team & very late in the campaign. As for the lawyer, well, I don’t have a lot of respect for the legal profession, to start with and even less after he squealed like a trapped rat and bargained for his life.
Son.. The implications for POTUS are horrible. This is not gloating at all.
Dad.. Let me assume you’re referring to the possibility of the Republicans losing its majority’s in the Congress?
That seems to be the driving force for every living Democrat and, the logical extension from that, is an effort to impeach him out of office. Nothing has changed in my view of what was once the concept of a “Loyal Opposition”.
In American politic’s. The daggers have been out for him since before his inauguration; sour grapes and animus are now the face of the Democrat Party. The hatred for him is palpable in the national media that echoes throughout acountry and, prodded by biased political pundits who were so unbelievably irate that they were so wrong. Whatever happened to the concept of “keeping your mouth shut, if you can’t say anything positive!”? I have to walk out of the room whenever whiney Chuck Schumer reads another hateful diatribe against the man. The not so loyal opposition is trying to undo an election because they can’t believe and won’t accept, that their highly flawed candidate wasn’t anointed as their ideological savior.
Son.. I really would like to know your thoughts…..do you still see Trump in the same way?
Dad.. What way is that? My basic opinion hasn’t changed because I started out with no illusions and knowing he was a mortal man with foibles & flaws. I knew that he would be torpedoed by holdovers from previous administrations and the increasingly corrupt FBI, CIA and DIA. I feel sorry for those Americans who can’t accept that Trump beat a bad candidate for the highest office in the land. The nation needed someone to try and undue some of the damage that BHO had done to the country and to our standing in the world. Obama’s actions to disarm our military, suck up to Socialist/Communist regimes and apologize for being the greatest nation in a hard and cruel world, were just some of what Trump promised to undo. Hear, Hear!!
Son.. Are his indiscretions and those close to him, i.e., Cohen, his long-time fixer, important to you?
Dad.. Not really!! I have concern that the Democrats will now intensify their opposition to Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Justice Kavanaugh.
The collective naiveté expressed by the fawning press, is as disgusting as usual. I am usually not inclined to justify bad behavior by citing similar behavior by others. Just as other people have been toppled from their lofty perches, those less powerful, less successful, enjoy chipping away at the top dog; it’s an example of what the Aussies call the “Tall Poppy” syndrome”. In other words, they enjoy cutting the big dog down to size; it’s fast becoming our national pastime.
Son.. You have been very quiet lately, since the clearance issue has come up. Thoughts?
Dad.. Yes, a few! I appreciate you asking. Believe it or not, I have a few other interests beyond national politics. Here at “God’s Waiting Room”, we have lost several good friends lately and I have been attending memorials, as well as getting ready to teach my Refresher Course in Contract Bridge.
One of the reasons we have so many differences we have slowly removed many ways we used in the past to make sure the next generation had a historical education of the past. Just in my lifetime we have slowly phased out the older phases of American history and today we have few historians left and have nearly phased out both American as well any State history. This was not accidental, it was planned, programed over 100 years ago by President Teddy Roosevelt and has been perpetuated, paid for and performed by the Progressives who have never worried openly about how long it would take to Socialize America. For the first time in my life Socialism is supported by 30% of American voters.
The only American alive today with the Gonads to stop the race to socialize America is Trump. The Progressives know this and fear him more than Putin or any other world leader. They know if he can be eliminated America can be neutralized without ever firing a shot. Watching this self-destruction in action is painful.
My friend and fellow golfer, Ed Johnson. sent me this dynamite article that is the best illustration of what is happening today in America I have read. Jack Minzey, the author, was a perceptive genius and penned this outstanding comparison a war without arms. If someone does not stop the Mueller exploitation and Witch Hunt the shooting could be next.
The actions described lead me to believe some powerful Democrats, Progressives, Liberals are hoping to increase the shooting and killing and to further divide Americans. They control the media and have far too many Federal Judges to create chaos, hate and diversions. When you analyze who has been amassing guns and ammunition preparing to defend their rights any armed conflict appears to be one sided. I would like to stimulate some dialog? Clyde Brewer. A few weeks ago, Jack Minzey, sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books and treatises which he had written. Jack went to be with the Lord on 8 April 2018. Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein. His interest in Conservative Politics was exceeded only by his intellectual ability. This is the last of his works: Civil War
How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here. What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections. That’s a civil war.
There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government. This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship. The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war. Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country. If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has ‘discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight. When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries. The Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship. Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can’t serve in if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren’t in the club with him. Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.
That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did. Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government. What a great perception. CB
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?
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.
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
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
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;
Should anyone in our government have lifetime tenure in America today?
Should election to Congress be a lifetime job?
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?
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.
