SANCTUARY CITIES AND THE LAW!

Well, I just can’t keep quiet when the “Idiots” run amok. CB 

I never dreamed I would live to see the United States have elected officials from a Mayor to the President just decide to ignore the laws of the land. What is worse the people actually support these actions to welcome some of the worst individual illegal aliens we have ever had in our country. Folks when gangs, rape, incest and even murder of American citizens is acceptable for these aliens to commit even a spastic idiot would stop this activity. Even worse we have had a Justice Department encourage this lawlessness and a President applaud these actions.

Now we have Sanctuary cities across the nation fighting with the Trump administration after the Justice Department requested that all American’s follow all current laws regarding illegal immigration.

Attorney General (A/G) Jeff Sessions recently threatened to withhold federal funds to “Sanctuary” cities that refuse to help deport illegal aliens with criminal backgrounds that put the public at risk. New York said will oppose the directive and do what it feels is right. Folks these unlawful “Sanctuary” cities and States have drawn a line in the sand and watch our new Sheriff invite them to the OK Corral and dare the Liberal/Progressive Judges to ignore the laws of the land.  

“We are going to become this administration’s worst nightmare,” New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Vlverito said during a recent sanctuary city conference the Associated Press reported. Mark-Vlverito also said officials there will deny access to federal immigration. The event took place in New York City and included officials from several major U.S. cities that do not enforce federal immigration laws.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said “his city will defy Sessions order and continue offering a safe place for illegals to stay”. We will fight to protect the safety and dignity of all Angelenos, and we will work closely with our representatives in Congress to make sure that Los Angeles does not go without federal resources that help protect millions of people every day”, reported the Los Angeles Daily News.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said “I’ve always seen Chicago as a welcoming city,he told NBC5  “Chicago was built on the back of immigrants, and our future is hitched to the wagon of immigrants who come to the city.”

Now we have a new President and “Sheriff” that is trying to get America back on a lawful course. The national Media is  supporting this “Sanctuary” movement and using every underhand method possible to create the news and slant it to oppose Trump’s actions. What is even more irresponsible is Government employees who are leaking classified information and citing covert blatant lies to derail any changes necessary to make America great again.

Personally I hope Trump, who has the people’s support, forces these unlawful actions and demands that any Judge who supports anyone ignoring the law to be fired or impeached. I hope he forces Congress to eliminate the “Education and the Energy Department’s”. It is time to privatize several operations performed by Federal employees like the Postal Service, Air Traffic Control. TVA and Amtrak just to start with. It is also time for the Federal Government employees at every level to have the same healthcare forced on the rest of us. Any other Government operation that has a union should be privatized or forced to work without any union involvement. All Americans should be treated equally, have free speech and be forced to follow all Federal laws.

If the cities and States continue to break the immigration laws, “ICE” should be directed to take every illegal, criminal or not, and release them in the Sanctuary cities and States. I hope Sessions and Trump do stop  all federal funding immediately. If we all are permitted to ignore Federal Laws everyone should not pay their income taxes this month. Then watch Congress and the Supreme Court get involved and fast. Stop all Government pay checks and watch how fast changes will happen. Remember folks Trump is working without pay. 

Let;s all make America great again.

“WE THE PEOPLE” – PART TWO!

Trying to even watch FOX anymore is so slanted, biased, twisted and filled with venom toward Donald Trump I will just watch movies and read blogs until the election is over. The entire media, politicians from every Party, Hollywood air-heads, has-been journalists and every dissident they can drag up have amassed the most one-sided opposition ever attempted in my 86 years to keep the people’s choice from becoming our next President.

This last batch of dirt unleashed has created so much hatred and lame excuses only a babbling idiot would believe they are honest. Any man alive who claims to have not uttered, had thoughts about or used slang terms regarding females in their lifetime should be struck by lightning for outright lying. Even preachers were boys at one time. These hypocrites that ignore the use of curse words by sweet Miss Hillary and the womanizing of Bill Clinton as an offset have exposed their deepest fears.

The near entire Congress, every form of the media, most government employees, current, retired and even dead and these has-been pundits are shaking in their boots for fear Trump will win. This army of various enemies in the past have finally agreed on one certainty together, they are afraid of the Donald.

A few brave souls have stayed behind his desire to stop bringing in aliens when we have no jobs for Americans. Stop moving industry offshore. Make allies and enemies pay for our help. Let the Arabs drink their oil by producing our own reserves and actually export energy for profit.

Remove all commerce like Amtrak, TVA, Postal Service etc. from cushy government benefits. Stop the Obama led program to kill the 40 hour work week, retirement plans from business and paying hamburger flippers more that we pay a member of the armed services.   

Having to watch and stomach a media that flat out ignored everything when Bill Clinton, the most powerful man on Earth and a sitting US President scoffed at his enemies. The media ignored a man who was guilty of multiple violent sexual assaults lure a young intern into his office and ruin her life. They now support this predator to have a chance for eight more years in the White House. If one of “We the People” had done this we would be in the “Big House”. Comparing this to what Trump uttered, as the army of cowards who are so scared are trying to do, is unbelievable.  

“We the People” are fed up and disgusted with the political elite. Trump is trying to wake up the masses of freedom loving Americans by exposing this disgust and those among the political elite who are so scared. Can you imagine the great wave of these elites scurrying to leave the US before the truth will put them in Prison. If Trump wins the election watch the Clintons be in another country before sunrise on November 9th. Folks we have a country to save and there is only one person who can save it. “We the People” across this great nation better stand behind Donald J. Trump. This may be my last election and it may be the last chance for most Americans to ever have another chance.

Please share this with as many real Americans as you can. I doubt I will be able to write my blog or express myself if this cabal of power is not stopped. As Yogi once said, “it ain’t over till it’s over.   Make America Great Again.   C Brewer 10-9-16

Federal Benefit Check?

I received this message from a good friend today and by chance my “Federal Benefit Check” from the Social Security Administration, arrived three days late. The past several months they have been late and they were always on time for some 21 years. In addition they told me I was not in compliance with a Federal Law by not registering for an electronic payment instead of a check since 2013. I suppose I will soon be arrested along half of the older retirees in the United States who don’t like electronic payments, debit cards and don’t need a bank account.

They warn us it is easy to lose a check but Debit cards can be lost by old folks much easier than the Postal Service can lose our checks. I have received this same message each month for two years. Soon I expect  government regulations that will tell us when and how we have to brush our teeth and wipe our rears.

As I am approaching 85, life in a Federal Prison would be a lot cheaper by not having to buy food, clothes, pay to insure my health and eventually the costs to bury me. I suppose I could divorce my wife of 55 years and give her all of our assets now. Please absorb the following scenario of our government helping you that you may not be unaware of? This older lady is obviously quite upset.

 The Story

Before reading the information below, I’d like to share an incident that happened to me a couple of months ago at a Walgreens. My husband had a new prescription that cost over $200. I have the Balance Rewards card from Walgreens, which honors prescriptions as well as other purchases. So, I asked for the Balance Rewards for this prescription to be added to my Rewards account.

The pharmacist said she couldn’t because I was paying for it with an entitlement. I explained that we have never been on any kind of entitlement program. She stated that Social Security and Medicare are entitlements. I tried not to come unglued, but told her nicely that my husband and I had earned our Social Security and Medicare with money paid into these accounts each and every payday. She said she understood, but it was now called an entitlement, and I couldn’t get the Rewards points. I could care less about the Rewards points, but was livid that the government now called Social Security (that we paid into all our lives) an entitlement!

To be fair to Walgreens, the pharmacist said that there was a federal law that no one on entitlement can benefit from those payments in any way…getting reward points. Wow! The government has their hands in everything! Anyway, now please read the item below…

If you get any Social Security at all in any manner, you might want to read. Did you know this?

Unfortunately most did not, and I am one of those whose Social Security funds are direct deposited to my bank, thus, I never see the checks. Once again, our beloved congressmen are playing fast and loose with vernacular. What motive did they have for changing the name of our Social Security? I’m sure they have a plan, and it won’t be to our betterment.

Here we go. JUST REALIZED THAT WITH REQUIRED AUTO DEPOSIT, I NEVER GET TO SEE THE CHECK. ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW. THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US.* *Subject:* SOCIAL SECURITY becomes FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK. Have you noticed, the Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit Payment”?

I am writing it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you. Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it…

The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a Federal Benefit Payment. This isn’t a benefit. It is earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes. If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 Invested in Social Security.

If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month), including both your and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% Interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved! This is your personal investment.

Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month. That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration (Google it – it’s a fact).

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.

Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did. They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot (Knew) that it was OUR money they were taking. They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer. But is it our fault they misused our investments? And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it. Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were a charity!

Let’s take a stand. We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government. Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

*Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.* 99% of people won’t share this. Will you? *You can bet I WILL!* I ALSO THINK WE SHOULD DEMAND THAT THEIR SALARIES AND RETIREMENTS BE CALLED FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENTS. THIS WOULD BE MORE HONEST THAN WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY.

I have no idea who wrote this but I hope you will share this with everyone possible. I wonder if we will see Obama, Holder, Hillary and the rest of the people like the IRS lady who ignored the laws when we all get to the federal pokey? C Brewer

IN GOD WE TRUST

You may have heard in the news that a couple of Post Offices in Texas have been forced to take down small posters that say “IN GOD WE TRUST”.

The law, they say, is being violated.

We heard proposed on a radio station show, that we should all write “IN GOD WE TRUST” on the back of all our mail. After all, that’s our National Motto, and all the money we use to buy stamps is ours.

We must take back our nation from all the people who think that anything that offends them should be removed.

If you like this idea, share this with every real American you know. The idea of writing or stamping “IN GOD WE TRUST” on our envelopes sounds good to us.

SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING A RUBBER STAMP MAKE TO SURE IT IS VISIBLE.

It’s been reported that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, we have a very hard time understanding why there’s such a mess about having “In God We Trust” on our money and having God in the pledge of Allegiance.

True Americans need to take action and tell the 14% to sit down and shut up.

“IN GOD WE TRUST”

QUALIFICATIONS – WHO PROTECTS US FROM POLITICIANS?

What is a qualified Professional Career Politician?

This may be a surprise for some?

I had lunch with my good friend Glen Provost this week to discuss the recent election cycle. We have conflicting political views on many aspects but we both accept each other’s intelligence. One thing we both agree on is that our entire political system is outdated and inoperative. Glen has been diligently trying to promote one term limits on Congress. With small exceptions, I am on full agreement that this has to be the first step in a new beginning to get our political mess cleaned up.

This concept has been lively discussed on the Internet but no newspapers, magazines, political hacks on the “one-eyed monster” or radio have the gonads to even discuss this issue. I have never heard a member of Congress utter a word of support for making politics a public service instead of a career in my lifetime. Public service for politicians was the objective of the people who designed our Republic form of government. The framers of our constitution also required that we would be a nation of laws that we now ignore if you have political power.

Glen pointed out in our discussion that our political system in place today places re-election the first responsibility for any politician from Mayor to President. Glen has some other intriguing ideas about other improvements that will help the people regain control of Congress and put public servants back into politics.

One thing we both agreed on was that it is very unlikely we will never live long enough to see our thoughts even surface much less materialize. For the record, Glen is a retired Attorney and I am a retired registered Professional Engineer with a Master’s Degree in Business. Realistically, the likelihood of our plans ever happening is less than zero.

Laws of the land and professional societies require that to provide professional services you must meet specific standards. Doctors and nurses must be specifically educated and licensed to practice medicine. Lawyers must be educated and pass exams to practice law, chase ambulances, annoy people with ad’s to sue somebody or become politicians. Professional Engineers and CPA’s must pass rigid exams to provide their services. This list is just an example and by strange coincidence, Lawyers are the only profession that is not liable for making mistakes.

We have 535 Americans serving in Congress. What are the minimum qualifications to serve in Congress?

The Constitution establishes the minimum qualifications for Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Members of the House must be at least 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for seven years and a legal resident of the state where the Congressional District is located.

Members of the Senate must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for nine years and legal resident of the state that elects him or her.

Wow, 18 year olds and illegal aliens can elect a Congressperson but don’t have the qualifications to serve. I suppose dead voters can serve as long as they are buried in the State or Congressional District they will represent. My, that seems strange just using common sense as a tool.

With the shape Americas is in today, it appears to be the time we demand qualifications for serving in Congress. They spend our money, raise taxes, manage the Postal Service, Amtrak and the TVA, make their own rules without public approval and spend 98% of their time they serve running for re-election.

Let’s review some fact’s, the postal Service just announced a $16,000,000,000.00 loss for 2012. Amtrak and the TVA have never posted a profit and the US is over $16,000,000,000,000.00 in debt. It must be acceptable to most voters who re-elected most incumbents who ran for re-election. 

Question, “Do you feel comfortable with a Congress that allows its own members to break the law, avoid any punishment and allow them to be re-elected?” I don’t but we just saw it happen with Charles Rangel and others this month. Why?

I feel and I hope you agree that anyone who has the power to enact laws should at least pass a test on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court can’t agree on what these documents require and they are lifetime approved by a Senate that has no requirement to even read them.

I am working on what should be the minimum requirements to serve in Congress that I will share with you as I complete them. Should you have your own list of what you perceive to be minimum qualifications to serve in Congress, please send them to me? I will give credit to those who help me compile the lists.

The most sensible thing we should do is change the voting age to at least 25. This comes close to matching the new “Obamalaw” that kids are covered by their parents insurance until they are 26. Something fails to compute.

GOVERNMENT-HERE TO HELP YOU “OUT”

WHY DID WE WORK SO HARD?

Before you read this let me state that I am not looking for any sympathy from anyone. I am just an old man who worked more hours than most to achieve the American Dream. After 17 years of retirement I am convinced that my government is close to destroying my savings for as punishment for being successful. Obama’s obsession to share the wealth is destroying those of us that saved to take care of ourselves

Obama and his progressive army have finished destroying the American Dream of home ownership. Carter started the eventual demise a long time ago. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd protected the scam with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac until the bubble burst. Barney still stands before the cameras to defend these government mismanaged organizations today.

Our government could not manage a bankrupt whorehouse in Nevada. How on God’s green earth did anyone with a third grade education, ever expect them to run Amtrak, the Postal Service, TVA, General Motors or Chrysler and break even, much less make a profit? Now the flood of new government regulations is destroying all businesses with idiotic and wasteful constraints.

In the last few days my IRA has suffered a near suicide. Does Obama or Congress care? No, they are on vacation and with their pensions, could care less that they have wiped out the savings of millions of senior citizens. For twenty seven years of service with a large defense contractor, I receive a pension of $221.47 per month. This will not even pay for the Medicare supplement for my wife and me.

I spent the last eleven years of my work life with one tall hill to climb. I knew before I started my first business what my pension would be. As I have a Masters in Business it was obvious that my future retirement would require personal savings to insure that we would survive old age.

In those eleven years I average 225 nights a year in hotels in over 27 countries and 49 states. I missed birthdays, anniversaries, my children’s school events and death in my family. Several of these trips exceeded 5 weeks and I amassed over 2 million miles on airplanes. Obviously my family also suffered.

Finally at age 64 I had saved enough to retire and with my savings in my IRA I felt secure. I had no fear that my children would not be burdened with caring for us when the time arose. I was blessed with a mind, driven to succeed and actually achieved every goal I had made for myself. Few honest people ever reach this pinnacle of success.

We are constantly asked if we are better off now than in the past by the self-ordained blood sucking saviors in Washington. Until Bush Two and Obama came along I could honestly say I have had a better life than most. I was better off each year as compound interest and long term investments were successful in maintaining my savings.

If Obama’s changes continue to improve as he keeps preaching, my savings will completely disappear before he completes his first term. If he wins another 4 years my children will not only have to take care of us, my grand children will never have a chance to even retire.

My question, especially to senior citizens, is your life these past four years better or worse than you expected?

I expect some feedback that I should have buried my savings in a fruit jar and it would all still be there. Well my 1994 dollars would be worth about $.38 cents today. If Washington keeps helping us with spending more than we have, will it be worth anything next year?

One more question. How many people, who are not working for the government, on welfare or drawing unemployment, feel they will be better off next year? I will be happy to share your names with everyone I can and I will try to sell you my “Golden Goose”. I got my goose from Washington with a promise that our government is always there to help me “out”. They just never explained what “out” was. “Out” seems to really be, “out” of luck, “out” of money, “out” of hope, hurry up and croak and get “out” of the way.
