Watching a mass eruption of “HATE” in the streets of America, the country I love and so much was the most horrible event of my life. This has been building up for several years. The recent events in California, North Carolina, Michigan, South Texas and now Virginia must be stopped and now.
If this does not stop now are we will have another civil war that is totally unnecessary. The event in Virginia that has been repeated on the media all day every day because the owners of the networks are one of the biggest inciters of violence America has ever seen. The other large group that has fanned the fires with security violations are 90% of all government employees except the military.
This also includes Congress and the thousands of their bloated staffs, along with the Federal Judges. It does not stop here as all of the States on the far-left coast and a growing number of of rabid Cities like Chicago who openly ignore Federal laws and gloat about it on 99% of our far Left-Wing media. Ignoring the laws and trying to sue the Federal Government is insane.
Do you have any knowledge of or even care to know what “Martial Law” even means? To my knowledge we have not seen our government impose Martial Law but they have controlled things with this power in my lifetime. We took away all rights of Japanese Americans and and virtually imprisoned them in 1942. The media was not so far left-wing then and willfully complied with strict government rules. If a city, or state during that period in history had willfully and blatantly ignored any laws, like our idiotic Mayor of Chicago, he would have been imprisoned where he belongs now. If Trump and the Justice Department continue to allow a State or a City to disobey any law we will have another “Civil War” whether we want one or not.
Let the following definition really soak in for a few hours before you decide what you would do this very day if you were President. Then look at my Bucket List of what I would do tomorrow if I was President.
“Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions of government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory.” Wikipedia
I would have imposed Martial Law last Sunday after the stupid but deadly event in Virginia. Immediately followed by similar lawless events destroying public property when statutes were not only destroyed but childishly celebrated
I would have imposed a 48 hour blackout of both TV, radio, newspapers and any blog that was intended to incite anyone. C-Span and Public Radio would be the only source of news while new rules were issued on what can be reported by anyone. Anyone that disobeyed these rules would be immediately incarcerated by the Military if necessary. During this period any person or persons that conducted any public display of lawlessness or rioting would be jailed and charged with treason.
Every city and State would have 72 hours to cancel their Sanctuary status. Any Governor or mayor who failed to comply would be banned for lifetime from serving any elected position. They would be imprisoned and tried for treason by a military tribunal. Each would be replaced by a military officer until a new election could elect a successor
Congress would have been called back from their month long vacation and instructed to develop new laws/rules if necessary to stop people from destroying property and protesting anything for at least one year. Congress would be required to stay in session until the President decided the rebellion was over. Any College or University that permitted demonstrations would be closed permanently
I fully understand that this would be a historical action. I also feel certain that if something severe does not happen, Civil War is destined to occur.
If these rabid demonstrators should understand they can’t change history by destroying anything. I doubt that 2% of these “animals” have any education related to our history.
For the girls and women who are being “used” like mercenaries to protest a war that happened over 150 years ago, just stop and think. It took another half century for a woman to be permitted to vote. They are obviously not aware they were second class citizens compared freed slaves. I challenge every female who is upset with conservative values to see who finally gave them the right to vote.
Congress proves every day that they are the enemy of the people. Paul Ryan. Speaker of the House, just made a statement that proves my comment. He related, President Trump needs to slow down, understand, join the political process that does not function near as fast as he desires.
Liberals let me know why I wrong
Conservatives let me know if you agree
Everyone out there, what would you do?
I just received this from DR, Peter Forrest and I have no idea who write this eye-opener for me. If anyone knows the author, please let me know so I can give credit. C Brewer
This may be the best and most honest political promotion statement you will ever read. It decidedly does not brush objections aside.
You Hate Hillary? READ it.
You Hate Trump? READ it.
You think there’s no choice? READ it. And, read it with your grown-up hat on.
We’ve all been dealt huge responsibility with this election. The first step toward accepting responsibility is accepting it, and the first step toward accepting it is recognizing it.
READ THIS. Read every single word. It’ll take you about three minutes.
Are you sickened and despondent with the current campaign and upcoming presidential election? I consider myself a conservative and do truly believe our country is at a political/economic/moral/ social crossroads. I need to let you know I could/would never vote for Hillary Clinton to lead this country.
To me, she represents everything that is wrong with our current political structure. On the flip side, I look and listen to Donald Trump and I cringe at every rude, insulting comment he makes.
If you find yourself in a similar state of mind, please read the following article:
A Message for Christians About Donald Trump
Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
“A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof at home with massive flooding up to the 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says “No, I’m waiting for God. I prayed and I know he’s coming.” 2nd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.” 3rd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”
Water rises. The man drowns. Now he’s meeting God in heaven. The religious man says, “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”
God says, “Hey, I sent you 3 rowboats.”
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
Maybe God is trying to tell us something important–that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished. Maybe the rules of gentlemen don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.
Maybe God is knocking on your door loudly, but you’re not listening. Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time. Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead. It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone. Finished. Kaput. Adios.
And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different. Someone you haven’t ever experienced before– because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.
Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church. Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary, God is pretty tough. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.
Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.
When we won WWII, was God “nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan? Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton so the good guys can defeat evil?
It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.” That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.
And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan aren’t nice at all–because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America. And God can’t allow that. Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isiah 40:30-31)
God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.
So let me repeat my message to Christians: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”
I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat. Except he’s more like a battleship!
No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time. Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values. The choice should be easy for Christians. It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the American dream.

Five years ago my old friend Freddie Keel challenged me to start this blog. He actually created the site and urged me to share my God given ability to write. About three years ago another friend, Kenn Fong, selected and created my masthead with “We the People” as my theme.
As a boy in the 1930’s, having supportive parents, a great school system and a Carnegie Library helped me fulfill my lifelong desire to learn everything possible in my lifetime. I have had a blessed life and I have learned something every day of my 86 years. I deeply enjoy sharing this knowledge with anyone who enjoys learning.
For the past 23 years in retirement I have read into many historical subjects. In this retirement phase of my life I was again challenged by my old boss and mentor, Phillip Sizer, to probe deeply into our Constitutional Republic form of “We the People” government and its history. Should you have any thirst to read about our history and some interesting events, read my articles about our Federal Reserve System and a near secret society called Tavistock.
Folks for the first time in my life, “We the People”, face the most unusual challenge in American history. Never have the majority of our government, Congress, all national forms of the media, past Presidents of both political parties and most the powerful self-interest individuals and groups in America have banded together. Even faced with war and after we were attacked by Japan this massive group has never been this cohesive in their fear of the people electing Donald Trump as our next President.
In my opinion should the people desire to maintain our Congressional Republic form of government they need to speak with powerful words and tell this cabal of political powers that they work for us, “the folks”. This could be the last opportunity to have a candidate beholden to no one politically
To support my message, I will share a tidbit of news that Tucker Carlson just wrote. He mentioned that most would think the Clinton spree raping the system would be over.
“We all knew for a long time that Hillary Clinton (and her husband Bill) were giant crooks. It’s only coming to light now, however, just how extensive their corruption and crimes are. When Bill concluded his presidency, he and Hillary founded the Clinton Foundation, a non-profit charity that had the noble goal of helping disadvantaged people around the world”.
“It’s become apparent, however, that the Clinton’s used their Foundation as a slush fund for a pay-to-play scheme. The sickening thing is that Hillary actively used it like this during her time as Secretary of State. Right foreigners (especially Arab oil billionaires with close ties to terrorism) would donate billions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for access to Hillary in her official State Department capacity. That’s as corrupt as it gets”.
Another friend, Tom Shoemaker just sent me a scenario that could, in my mind start civil war and if it happens a military coup would save the United States from itself. This should scare the daylights out of any sane America, even those on welfare.
“If Hillary wins the election it is my theory that she will never take the oath to be President. Instead President Obama will turn his back and in-fact will encourage the DOJ to indict her on the criminal use of her e-mail and the so called “Clinton Foundation” which is, as Tucker says’ or insinuates, is nothing more than a scam. Upon this taking place it will open the door for Obama to remain in office for a third term”.
“Now, how will this happen, again this is my theory! Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, will be unable to assume those duties as we have a sitting President/Vice President, Donald Trump cannot be inaugurated as he was defeated in the General Election, therefore that will leave Obama in office until another election can be held, which will never happen, thus leaving him to serve another term. After that who is to say, that he has so turned the apparent class warfare, that he will appoint himself as the supreme ruler and continue his destruction of this great nation”.
FOLKS IT IS TIME TO SHAKE WASHINGTON UP
It would not surprise me if something like this happens. The best way to stop this possible scenario will be to elect Donald Trump. To add my fears to this scary possibility I would not be surprised that if Trump does win, he will be eliminated by our government just like they silenced Justice Scalia recently. C Brewer
We have had over seven years of watching an elected President of the United States create more hatred and racial tension than any American enemy since the Civil War.
Watching him smirk and attack the police at every event when a black American is killed is fanning the fires of insurrection is unbelievable. In Dallas last week he again fanned the fires while speaking at the eulogy services for slain Dallas police officers who were ambushed by a black American. He might as well have openly cheered the coward he had incited to kill the policemen.
The really sad part is while our President is openly placing targets on the backs of our policemen Congress sits on its hands and does nothing. Watching the Demoncrats cheer Obama openly makes me sick. Watching the leaderless Repulsivecans attack Donald Trump instead of stopping this insensible carnage makes me sicker.
Tomorrow the Repulsivecans begin their convention in Cleveland and my biggest fear is that we will see more policemen killed like we are watching what is happening in Baton Rouge today. I sit here listening to the fact that seven more policemen were ambushed and three have died so far. It will probably take Obama a few more hours to announce that police action. I was raised to believe that “hate” was unacceptable by a mother and father who loved this country.
Now as I approach my 86th birthday next month, I am glad they never had to watch an American President hell-bent on destroying our country. Obama has driven me to the edge of hate and it is difficult to watch the planned war on our police fanned by our President. Am I the only American who questions why Congress does nothing to stop this insurrection? I watch the blacks in Congress applaud the President like a bunch of crows and buzzards eating road kill. Where are Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, our leaders in name only, who just sit on their hands and watch Obama create the insurrection? I wonder if they play golf with Obummer?
I pray I am wrong but I feel we are destined to wake up some morning before the November elections to hear that our President has declared Martial Law. Until then we are destined to watch the continued murder of our policemen, our first line of defense for insurrection that is under way. Obama has planned this action for nearly eight years with precision. If our military leaders support him, America and our freedoms will be destroyed. The carnage that will follow will exceed the loss of American lives in the Civil War.
The NAACP convention is underway in Cincinnati and I feel sure there will be no police killed there. With the Repulsivecan convention beginning in Cleveland tomorrow I would hate to be a policeman and I pray they will all be safe. If no one is assassinated in Cleveland this week it will be a miracle. We will watch many Repulsivecans try to character assassinate Donald Trump and hopefully the convention will nominate Trump/Pence to be our next President/Vice-President of the United States.
Our country is broken and we need someone to unite us again. We are all Americans and if we can elect Trump we have someone who has promised to make America great again. I know my time on earth is limited but I pray I can live long enough to be proud of our country and respect a President again.
Is there anyone out there who will take the time to agree or disagree with my viewpoints by commenting on this article? Feedback is my only measure of the time I spend reading, listening and writing. Maybe it is time to stop?
C Brewer July 17, 2016
News that the majority of the “people” in the United Kingdom have spoken that they have had enough of the European Union “Elites” mandates. This was totally unexpected by the current Government, world leaders, bookmakers and especially our President Obama. This vote has rocked the entire world and it is only the beginning of a new phase of dissatisfaction with the “Elites” worldwide. The people are sick and tired of actions that in some cases are illegal, so that politicians can dilute people’s heritage by allowing an immigration policy that is slowly wrecking their lives.
The common folks can see that they are losing their identity, faith, savings and future to satisfy minorities that even a fool can see have diluted their freedoms. The people appear willing to possibly lose some of their savings and dis-unite from a group of countries that have so many different races, faiths, history and plans for more dilution. They are screaming that they desire to preserve their country for their children and grand children’s future. Even though the vote shows that the British people and the Scottish people may eventually separate, freedoms will prevail for both.
Fellow Americans, we are faced with an identical dilemma in what is now a totally “Dis-United States of America. America was created by a diverse group of immigrants who were tired of the rigid control of their faiths, excess taxation, future and freedoms. They rebelled and won a way to create the most successful Republic form of government that has ever existed.
Now we are watching the “Elites” of Washington D.C. band together to prevent Donald Trump and the people from stopping the same destruction of our freedoms. Watching the leaderless people like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, George Will, Lindsay Graham, George and Jeb Bush and many more so-called “Conservatives” try everything possible to stop Trump from being elected is sad. This covert movement to deny American people their rights to preserve our heritage is unprecedented in recent American history. Watching how the “Elites control every media outlet from supporting the people is one of the worst manipulations of free speech I have seen in my nearly 86 years on this earth.
We have watched all three, Executive, Congressional and Judiciary branches of our government, allow and even speed up the new immigrant invasion that allows all Muslims the freedom to demonstrate their faith in public and at the same time prohibit other faiths from doing the same thing.
We allow the Mexican immigrants to disgrace our flag and demand that we allow them to ignore English as our choice of languages. We issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants who can’t even read our traffic signs. In some states we openly allow illegals, convicted prisoners and the dead to repeatedly vote in federal elections while the Justice Department and our Supreme Court actually support this lawlessness. Our own President Obama has openly created a race war just short of mass insurrections in our cities and even our Congressional leaders have no concern.
Watching the covert movement by both Democrats and Republicans to find a way to prevent Trump from being elected President is sickening. Watching the media overtly and covertly supporting this manipulation to get Hillary elected makes me sick. If the majority of Americans buy this line of propaganda Americans will never have another chance to return the power of governing our country to the people. I pray that enough Americans have the courage to at least allow Trump a chance to fire enough “Elites” to allow the people to have the power to control our future.
The British people have shown us a path. I hope we have the courage to take control of our destiny as they have. Please read the rest of this article to get acquainted with Donald Trump, a true American patriot. C Brewer

Trump family history – concise
Donald Trump’s grandparents emigrated to the U.S. from Alsace (Kallstadt, Germany) which throughout history has been alternately French and German. The Trumps are German, originally speaking the same German dialect as the Amish of Lancaster County, Pa.
His maternal grandparents lived in Scotland.
Freiderich (Drumph) Trump made a small but respectable fortune in the late 19th Century in the mining boom towns of the American Northwest. He returned to Germany to marry his childhood neighbor, Elizabeth Chris.
The newly married Trumps resettled in the Borough of Queens NY.
Freidrich was establishing a Real Estate business in Queens when he died suddenly at age 49 (1918).
In 1920, at the age of 15, Fred Trump (Freiderich’s son and Donald’s father), started a business partnership with his widowed mother called Elizabeth Trump & Son. This business was built upon the real estate holdings that his father, Frederich, had amassed (worth about $500,000.00 in today’s dollars).
This is the original “seed money” of the current Trump Organization.
Elizabeth & Fred remained close business partners her entire life (she died in 1966).
In 1936 Fred Trump (age 31) married Mary Ann MacLeod (age 24) of Stoneaway Scotland.

Donald Trump does not seem to hold political party organizations in high regard.
For the most part, his political involvement has been for practical reasons.
Donald Trump does not appear to be held to political ideology.
Some of my takeaways:
Trump has an extraordinarily energetic central nervous system, much like Teddy Roosevelt but more targeted to industry and enterprise.
Trump’s presidency will be very energetic, transparent, and communicative.
Trump will be a very hard working President.
His interaction with his older brother (who everybody loved), tells me that he thinks that everybody is like him – or wants to be – or should be.
His relationship with his older brother was a hard lesson in tolerance for him.
Trump is the Babe Ruth of career achievements.
He is dumb like a fox. When you think he just said something stupid – he didn’t. It’s just that you were not his target audience.
Trump knows the people – the folk.
His son, Donald Jr. is right. Trump is a “Blue Collar Billionaire”.
More than anything, his TV show, The Apprentice, was his passion. He wants all Americans to have confidence (like he does) to venture.
Donald Trump is attracted to and marries smart, high achieving women.
The highest levels of a Trump Administration is certain to have many women; they will be bright and assertive
Donald Trump’s children are very important to him. And it shows.
What a contrast to prior professional politicians.
May be worth the risk to see how he performs as the POTUS. IMHO, he won’t make the mistakes of his predecessor, at least he won’t diminish the image of the US in the eyes of the world.
ANON …. I have no idea who compiled this factual family history or the personal observations and comments. I would like to give credits if someone will advise me of the author.
My friend Ron Jenkins sent me the following message and I have made some minor changes to reflect some personal feelings. I hope that all Americans will read this. This is a tragedy made by Congress to satisfy the Socialists of America. Our kids will be saddled with paying for this forever.
The C-Span Channel that broadcasts all those Congressional hearings are boring, but you should have been around to watch the Senate Finance Committee’s hearing last month on the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHA) Insurance Oversight.
Folks, you haven’t seen so many faces of misery since you watched Les Miserable’s for three and a half hours…and they were mostly supporters of the original bill. Senator Max Baucus, was one of them and the primary sponsor of ObamaCare, in the Senate!
Nancy Pelosi was right; you had to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it…and we are now learning what we were warned about. It’s an unworkable mess that is throwing millions of Americans off the health care rolls!
Information presented at the hearing reflect tens of thousands of American employers began throwing workers off their health care plans and opting to pay the much lower federal fine for not offering health care for their workers. Thousands more are even now converting their full time workers to part time workers by limiting working hours per week to less than 30, in compliance with Obama care rules.
Paul Ryan, Vice-Presidential candidate, predicted employers would do this? There is a stampede underway that will devastate the future for everyone.
We were warned that employer’s would move to save operating expenses by moving their entire work force into federal healthcare exchanges!
Now, these workers, who have lost their health care benefits, are busy trying to sign up for state health care exchanges. (There are internet sites available if your state has agreed to sign up to Obama care).
However, when these American workers, soon to be without employer provided health care, go to the Health Exchanges to sign up, they are finding they are not qualified! It seems that during the signup process, applicants are required to fill in various income and benefit data, which then flows over to IRS computers who then are to spit out what your premium costs will be and how much federal tax credits you’ll receive in order to receive subsidies to help you afford health care premiums that are as much as 30% more than you were paying under your employer’s plan!
Big Problem! The IRS is only allowing somewhere around 9% subsidy support for ObamaCare Health care Exchange premiums that are priced so much higher than the worker was paying under his employer plan!
There were warning’s that forcing working Americans to pay for the 30 million who pay nothing for their health care, under Medicaid, would drive the premiums of working Americans higher? Well, it’s now happening.
Second Big Problem! The IRS computers won’t communicate with the Health Care Exchange computers because the IRS computer system is old and obsolete! So when workers try to sign up for Obama care the IRS, and the Health Exchanges are telling applicants they can’t process their applications.
Fireworks really broke out at the Finance Committee hearings on Obama care. Senator Max Baucus, said, “how could this happen? I’m hearing from my constituents that they and their families have been left out in the cold and are without health care because the Exchanges are not accepting them!”. Quote from Senator Bill Nelson, (Dem), Florida “my constituents are not going to be happy to hear this administration failed to implement the necessary changes to accommodate health care applicants, someone has to pay for this!” Similar outrage was professed by Senator Ron Wyden (Dem) from Oregon.
The Program Director for the Health Care Affordability Act, was on hand to lend testimony. All he could seem to do was sympathize with the Democrats that are scared, saying that maybe the problems should be ironed out by the end of 2014, but was unable to offer solutions as to how that could be done.
Recently, a Harvard University economics professor came on CNBC to announced that, according to a federally financed study his group just completed, the Health and Human Services Secretary is going to be forced to come back to this same committee and request $700 billion dollars more be allocated to ObamaCare, just to pay for those automatically covered under current federal programs.
The Wall Street Journal reported that, in addition to the 30 million Americans not currently covered under ObamaCare, tens of millions more who will be left in the “no health care Twilight Zone”; those who were doing just fine with their employee health care plans before ObamaCare was implemented. Many of those who were working 40 hour weeks will find themselves deemed “part time employees” and made to work less than 30 hours per week and therefore, be unable to afford the AHA’s premiums, even if they could get through the application process.
The working poor, and the rapidly declining middle class will be out in the cold, without any health care, the Medicaid/Welfare recipients will have no worry; they should be covered by that $700 billion dollar budget increase Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services will be asking from Congress soon!
Let us hope that the Affordable Healthcare Act, i.e., ObamaCare, the “Flag Ship” of the Presidents 1st term, may be in serious trouble and heading for major amendment, if not repeal.
As we have not seen this reported on the major news programs, it appears the media moguls do not watch C-Span.
