WHO IS DONALD TRUMP!

Charles Krauthammer’s interesting take on Mr. Trump! 

Having been retired for 24 years has given me time to read and the dividing of Americans to create a Socialist government is my biggest fear. Many writers, scholars and some with genius minds have become my mentors. This group numbers less than a dozen and I read every word they write. Of this small group Charles Krauthammer is one of the smartest Americans alive. His article that follows is proof that Mr, Krauthammer has taken the time to explain how Donald Trump is so well focused on the problems we face that no one in government service has the foggiest idea what is happening. Together with the fact that the majority those in government service have become so liberal they have yet awakened to the fact they face a leader who is unafraid them or anyone else in the world.

Trump has had the same effect on other world leaders who have never crossed paths with anyone who can’t stomach pomp and ceremony. Sadly many feel is necessary to be an elite to lead any government. I feel certain that those who are awakening with fear have little time left if they continue to challenge his unique and no nonsense method of solving problems. He tweets in his unique way to try to awaken those who feel privileged and his mind functions so fast few have the foggiest idea that what is coming on the horizon. Those who oppose his wisdom have not awakened to the fact they are in a tunnel of their choice and a locomotive is headed their way. The useless have crawled into the tunnel trying to protect their rear ends.

Why do you think some 30 key Republicans, including Speaker Paul Ryan, have announced they will not run for re-election?. Whether Trump continues to have a majority in Congress or not, Mr. Schumer and whatever gender Nancy Pelosi actually functions as, should have hired some smarter people. Factually, because they drifted so far left, there may not be anyone in the Democratic world who can see the locomotive on the Trump train headed their way?

Clear your mind, relax and hope you have enough sense to understand what you are about to read. This article will sail over the heads for most Americans for two reasons. One they don’t understand and two they would never admit they are out manned by a human so much smarter than themselves. Watching them get run over by the Trump Train as it flies by will be enjoyable. All trump needs is the support of the working folks to strengthen our Republic to help them stay free.

You may find the  following article is of no interest. Our media will fit ignore it including FOX.  I believe Krauthammer has correctly identified who and what Trump is all about. Charles Krauthammer’s interesting take on Mr. Trump Is brilliant.

Preamble

To my friends “of a different persuasion” I’m not trying to sell anything or anyone but I do feel this is an interesting take on our very controversial president who I truly believe is not Republican or Democrat. CK


A TAKE ON DONALD TRUMP

A different take on Donald Trump: (a non-political agenda) Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He’s a “Pragmatist.”

(Definition: A pragmatist is someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let emotion distract him or her.)

“We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation varied from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics.

At one point, reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative, to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.

I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

Viewing problems from a Liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending and globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff, appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

Immigration isn’t a Republican problem,it isn’t a Liberal problem it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

The impending collapse of the economy wasn’t a Liberal or Conservative problem, it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect.

Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

Trump uniquely understands that China’s manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it.

Here again, successful businessmen like Trump who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work, and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn’t work, you don’t continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

As a pragmatist, Donald Trump hasn’t made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl’s Hamburgers.

I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason some people do not like him is because:

(1) he is antithetical to the “good old boy” method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians;

(2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a president speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who he owes vis-a-vis donations;

(3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology;

(4) he says what he is thinking, is unapologetic for his outspoken thoughts, speaks very straightforward using everyday language that can be understood by all (and is offensive to some who dislike him anyway) making him a great communicator, for the most part, does what he says he will do and;

(5) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.

Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to “out crazy” one another. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it, but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts that people don’t give tens of millions without expecting something in return

We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?

I submit that a pragmatist is just what America needs right now. People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance, but that is common among those who have never accomplished anything in their lives (or politicians who never really solved a problem, because it’s better to still have an “issue(s) to be solved,” so re-elect me to solve it, (which never happens) and those who have always played it safe (again, all politicians) not willing to risk failure, to try and achieve success).

Donald Trump put his total financial empire at risk in running for president and certainly did not need or possibly even want the job; that says it all. He wants success for the U.S. and her citizens because he loves his country!

Alas Americans we have a leader and if the media and the liberal government employees are not careful they will find imprisonment very uncomfortable. The people have the chance to unwind the Washington pomp and ceremony and make these folks eat some humble pie. I hope I live long enough to see the pie served. Are you with me???

GOD SAVE AMERICA   C Brewer

OUR BIGGEST ENEMY IS OUR GOVERNMENT!

Prove me wrong?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you agree or disagree, share your reasons why?

CONGRESS CREATED THE SWAMP!

We all need to help Trump start and maintain the pumps.

Congresspersons have become nothing more than greedy power whores, thriving with the lavish gifts from the hoard of  lobbyist that did not even exist until after WWII. Although there are no numbers to evaluate I suspect that there are more lobbyist in Washington D.C. and the 50 State capitols than there are members in all of our military services. Money and other presents may not buy everyone but you can be certain if it is enough it will to buy a majority of votes.

It took a while longer but next they bowed to the unions and allowed our Federal Government employees to be protected by unions. When Congress allowed this monster to be created they really started the deficit alligator to join in on the downhill slide. If our Congress and Presidents can’t be fair to its employees they should resign. It would be interesting to see how the costs of government employees has increased in relationship to industrial workers

Another interesting comparison would be to see another cost breakdown. This would be the nonmilitary government employee cost to purchase and provide everything necessary to support the military today, versus what it costs in 1945 during a world war. Where did the thousands of Defense Department employees work during WWII when there was no Pentagon. Never forget all money needed for every Government Agency is provided by Congress.

Until Congress authorized the Department of Energy(DOE) all Government oversight and control of the Petroleum industry was part of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This happened while I was deeply involved with the energy industry. In fact I chaired a quasi Government/Industry Program for several years that was administered by the Minerals Management Service of the then (DOI) and was Policed/Audited by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This program required in some cases a lot of wasted time and records. Another peculiar requirement was it only affected two kinds of safety valves out of the hundreds of other failure modes. The one thing even bothered me more was this requirement was only required on oil and gas wells in Federal Offshore waters. After the BP blowout my first thought was they should have required this control on blowout preventers.

The DOE now has 220,000 employees and I would bet my house that the (DOI) has as many or more employees than they had when the the two were separated. Only Congress could have stopped this but they will never understand the game played by Government employees. When you can’t get bigger in bad times then turn the lobbyist loose to create a new Agency. Study how the Department of Education became one of those boondoggles.

Congress makes its own rules, why?

Congress sets its own salaries, why?

Congress determines its own pensions, Why?

Congress determines its own ethics, Why?

Congress establishes its own budgets, Why?

Congress refuses to set term limits, Why?

Finally we elected a President who likely know many more Why’s than I do. Unfortunately Congress entices the media to keep him involved with defending his every decision that he will never have time to fix Congress. The only way Congress will ever get stopped from spending is for the people to stand behind our man. If the people stay divided the America I love so much will disappear.

Do you support open borders with useless control parameters? The Democrats do, why?

Do you support confiscating all weapons and ammo owned by citizens? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support having to print all Government requirements in as many as 20+ languages, including ballots? The Democrats do, Why?  

Do you want to reinstate the hundreds of unnecessary Government regulations Trump had cancelled? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want illegal aliens and prisoners to vote in our elections? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want to keep the treaties that have caused our companies to move the millions of our workers jobs overseas? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support the Sanctuary Cities and States that hide illegal aliens from deportation that violates Federal Laws? The Democrats do, Why?

Democrats, if you hate our country and our laws so much it would be easier to immigrate to Canada, Australia, England, Germany, France who have Socialism you so dearly desire. If you want to fight for something try immigrating to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and help these people kill each other. Leave freedom loving Americans alone.

A bunch of us are happy to be free and we support our President to please don’t stop draining the swamp. We appreciate his vigor and reluctance to keep the pumps draining. Someday our Federal employees will have the same benefits that all of us have, including Congress. If they are elected to support the people they should have pay and benefits that we have. If they want to be equal to the leaders of industry then go to work and earn the benefits like we have to do.

All America needs are jobs and put welfare army back to work. They can replace the illegals that took their place as Americans were put on welfare. The biggest need is term limits and no Tenure for any elected or Obsessionally appointed Government Official.

I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

STATISTICS & POLITICS! AMERICA DROWNS IN INFORMATION.

DO WE HAVE TOO MUCH INFORMATION?

Believe it or not if you have a device to connect you with the internet You can read about anything, especially American politics, and never read it all. By the time you think you have read every word there will be more to read than you had when you started.

I will share an old story I heard about fifty years ago.

“A business owner was convinced that his CPA was no longer capable. He invited three new potential accountants to come for an interview.

The first was invited in and was asked a simple question, how much is two and two. Without hesitation he answered “four”. He was excused.

The second one was invited in, asked the same question and provided the same answer, “four”. He was excused.

The third was invited in and asked the same question. Much to the owners surprise he answered  “What number do you want it to be? He was hired immediately.

This story exactly describes our entire government and how it operates. If you take enough time you can get statistics to support any position or answer you are looking for. The amount of honesty, ethics and performance of everyone with power in Washington and the elected officials in every Democratic controlled State is questionable. I believe it might be just as bad in every State because politics controls every aspect of our lives today.

When the powerful can tell you what bathroom you can use you should know ethics have been discarded by one or a group of perverts. Politicians who scream about global warming are being paid to support anything questionable with power and money. Again statistics can find any answer you want if you selectively try long and hard enough.

Anyone who has watched our Federal Judges including the Supreme Court as long as I have and believes they render decisions that meet our Constitution and other laws need to visit a “shrink”. They get nominated and appointed for life by elected officials to support the political party in power. If you care, take time to ask why every political decision by the Supreme Court usually ends with a 5 to 4 decision. Occasionally like Roberts decision on Obamacare when his tie breaking vote smelled like a dead rat. Did he get paid, we will never know?     

To make my point I will share some statistics gathered from the Internet for January 24th. With all of the massive amount of money used to skew facts I question political honesty of these supposedly factual numbers. Most of the data presented is supposedly generated from calls to actual voters. There is no way to guarantee they are actual voters. I am 87 years old and I have never been contacted by one of these pooling companies.       

First look at the President’s performance.

President Trump Job Approval Harvard-Harris Approve 44, Disapprove 56
President Trump Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 37, Disapprove 59

After nearly every poll in America predicted that Hillary would be elected I have no confidence in anyone anymore. If 56% or 59% of our voters are anti-Trump, America is in deep dodo. We have this one chance to clean politics and the big money will decide this year’s elections just like they have until Trump beat the money powerful in 2016.

Now look at now look over Congress approval rating.

Congressional Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 18, Disapprove 72
Congressional Job Approval FOX News Approve 15, Disapprove 70

With the growth in the army of people who are required to support one Congressman. The 15% and 18% figures could be the individuals who must number in the thousands and their families and close friends. That is if any of the 535 have a friend? I have found no one who thinks Congress can do anything correct and if they make a decision no one agrees but them.

Look over the right or wrong direction we are headed.  

Direction of Country Reuters/Ipsos Right Direction 30, Wrong Track 58
Direction of Country Harvard-Harris Right Direction 35, Wrong Track 54

When I saw this result these polls reveal they must be rigged with the same people who the pollsters used to report that Hillary would win in a cake walk in 2016.

Real Americans are sick and tired of watching our government grow, create regulations, wreck entire industries like Coal and end up with a welfare army of Aliens, illegal Aliens and far too many Americans unemployed. Watching jobs leave for foreign countries by the millions and our factories boarded up has been miserable.

Fellow Americans we have a new leader in the Washington “Swamp”. He has rolled up his sleeves donned waders and is kicking ass to help Americans. He is fighting the Demoncrats, nearly alone, fighting the RINO’s like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who have tried to torpedo his Presidency along with Chuck “Slimey” Schumer, the Clinton Machine and Nancy, “Face lift Queen” Pelosi.

The primary enemy of the Conservatives and the people is the large networks and news networks including far too many liberals at Fox News like Juan Williams and Shepard Smith.

It is refreshing to see how many companies are bringing back jobs and parked profits from overseas and reopening facilities or building new ones to hire American workers. Drying up the welfare army and putting lifetime welfare leeches to work for their benefits like Roosevelt did in the 1930’s when I was a boy. Why are the Demoncrats pushing to increase the volume of illegals to put on welfare when Americans need the better jobs?

Stop listening or reading the rigged news being spewed from the media supporting the liberal movement to Socialize our Country. Socializing America is a step to remove freedoms millions of Americans have died to protect.

God bless Donald Trump who is our last chance to remain free.

You comments are appreciated in helping me know the subjects you would like to know more about.

DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE?

OBVIOUSLY I AGREE.

My wonderful friend, Dorella Bond shared this letter with me. This message is far too important to just forward to my 85 friends and family who actually read my “E” mails. The sad part is these two lifetime bureaucrats will never read this letter as they are only interested in re=election and face time on CNN. Someday, likely after I am done enough real Americans will force term limits on Congress and make them listen to the people. Thanks Dorella, you made this old veterans day. Clyde Brewer

Gentlemen: I’m a 68 year old Vietnam Vet and retired 3M Executive. I am on the verge of leaving the Grand Old Party. No big deal for you  huge deal for me. I have come nearly to the end of my loyalty to a party that seems to have lost its backbone.

The lack of leadership displayed by the two of you — for whatever reason you’ve decided to not support or defend the duly elected President of the United States — is beyond me.

Yes, President Trump is not the typical political bureaucrat, but he is the President of the United States. It appears from where I sit that you both have decided to lay down on the job you’ve been elected to serve. The 60 Million + people that voted this President into office made this decision based upon the absolute requirement to have someone outside the beltway to lead the nation. As distasteful as this appears to be for not only the Democrats, it appears to be equally distasteful to the GOP leadership. Your lack of action on numerous legislative issues that this country desperately needs is visible to all.

The electoral map of the U.S. is RED because President Trump > mobilized the electorate. These same voters are going to clean house again in 2018 if you don’t start acting like leaders. Former Arizona state lawmaker Kelli Ward is out in front against Senator Jeff Flake by 25 percentage points today. Can you say: “We are tired of GOP leaders in Washington D.. C.?” This is only going to increase across the U. S. for all GOP midterm candidates if they continue to demonstrate no backbone and will not support our President.

My best description of where this country is headed was voiced by David Horowitz. “Friends, this isn’t George Orwell’s “1984..” It is America, 2017.”

When I look at the current GOP, I’m struck by a comparison that I recently heard. This is a basketball example that really does reflect what the GOP appears to be today. The metaphor is the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals. The Democrats are the Globetrotters and the GOP are proud to be the Washington Generals. The Generals know going into the game that they are going to lose, but

it’s a nice gig and they get to be on the court with the big boys. The GOP and The Washington Generals don’t mind losing – they just want to be in the game! Sound familiar?

That is exactly how it appears to the loyal GOP voters out here in America right now. Why is zero legislation moving forward? We have the Presidency, we have the House, we have the Senate! What’s wrong with this picture? We are wasting valuable time here, Senator McConnell and Representative Ryan. The voters are not going to waste time in 2018.  This is the last chance for the GOP before it morphs into something none of us recognizes. And, by the way, when are you going to support the laws on the books?

Sanctuary Cities, Antifa, tearing down statue’s, covering statues: the progressives are running wild and the GOP is laying down.

Remember freedom of speech? UC Berkeley? The progressives are worried about what shoes the first lady is wearing and the media is supporting it. What a wonderful world we are living in. Well there you have it. President Trump and Vice President Pence are being copied on this plea for help. Hitch up your pants and stiffen your backbones. It’s about time! I know what’s coming because I live in a state that has already gone off the cliff – CALIFORNIA. The Progressive have already won here!! I mean the Globetrotters.

I have an extensive cc list of over 1,500 people. I’m asking them to send this note to 10 of their Conservative Friends.

We the people will not sit still while this country is being abused and our values are not being represented. The Left will not take this country away from us.

KHALID SHEIK MOHAMMED – OBAMA’S LEGACY?

Another interesting accumulation of facts sent to me by my friend, Ron Jenkins. The more facts that are being shared about the Obama disaster show a trail of events to damage America. How Obama escapes being charged with Treason baffles me. The lawlessness of the past eight years is frightening. After you read this you wonder how one man surrounded with his clandestine staff of Muslim sympathizers were not stopped from the damage they imposed by the Supreme Court.   C Brewer

This is really worth reading …….

Addresses Water Boarding that George W approved and initiated. Obama discontinued it despite strong advice not to do so.

This takes about two minutes to read … it is worth every second. This is something every person in America must know. The single most prominent characteristic of contemporary America is that common sense has been abandoned to political correctness and “feelings.”

As President George W. Bush’s top speechwriter, Marc Thiessen ( The Kelly File on FOX ) was provided unique access to the C I A program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (K S M). Now, his riveting new book, Courting Disaster: How the C I A Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from Courting Disaster:

KHALID SHEIK MOHAMMED  

Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house and received a text message from an informant inside the house.

It read: “I am with KSM.” Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh

Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody.  

In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.” Once in custody, K S M is defiant. He refuses to answer questions, informing his captors that he will tell them everything when he gets to America and sees his lawyer. But K S M is not taken to America to see a lawyer.  

Instead he is taken to a secret C I A “black site” in an undisclosed location.    

Upon arrival, K S M finds himself in the complete control of Americans. He does not know where he is, how long he will be there, or what his fate will be. Despite his circumstances, K S M still refuses to talk. He spews contempt at his interrogators, telling them Americans are weak, lack resilience and are unable to do what is necessary to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals. He has trained to resist interrogation. When he is asked for information about future attacks, he tells his questioners scornfully, “Soon, you will know.”

It becomes clear he will not reveal the information using traditional interrogation techniques. So he undergoes a series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved for use only on the most high-value detainees. The techniques include waterboarding. He begins telling his C I A debriefers about active al Qaeda plots to launch attacks against the United States and other Western targets. He holds classes for C I A officials, using a chalkboard to draw a picture of al Qaeda’s operating structure, financing, communications, and logistics. He identifies al Qaeda travel routes and safe havens and helps intelligence officers make sense of documents and computer records seized in terrorist raids. He identifies voices in intercepted telephone calls, and helps officials understand the meaning of coded terrorist communications. He provides information that helps our intelligence community capture other high-ranking terrorists. K S M’s questioning, and that of other captured terrorists, produces more than 6,000 intelligence reports, which are shared across the intelligence community, as well as with our allies across the world.  

In one of these reports, K S M describes in detail the revisions he made to his failed 1994-1995 plan known as the “Bojinka plot” to blow up a dozen airplanes carrying some 4,000 passengers over the Pacific Ocean. Years later, an observant C I A officer notices the activities of a cell being followed by British authorities appear to match K S M’s description of his plans for a Bojinka-style attack. In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot. On the night of Aug. 9, 2006, they launch a series of raids in a northeast London suburb that lead to the arrest of two dozen al Qaeda terrorist suspects. They find a U S B thumb-drive in the pocket of one of the men with security details for Heathrow airport, and information on seven Trans-Atlantic flights that were scheduled to take off within hours of each other:

  • * United Airlines Flight 931 to San Francisco departing at 2:15 PM
  • * Air Canada Flight 849 to Toronto departing at 3:00 PM
  • * Air Canada Flight 865 to Montreal departing at 3:15 PM
  • * United Airlines Flight 959 to Chicago departing at 3:40 PM

They seize bomb-making equipment and hydrogen peroxide to make liquid explosives. And they find the chilling martyrdom videos the suicide bombers had prepared.

Today, if you asked an average person on the street what they know about the 2006 airlines plot, most would not be able to tell you much. Few Americans are aware of the fact al Qaeda had planned to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with an attack of similar scope and magnitude. And still fewer realize the terrorist’s’ true intentions in this plot were uncovered thanks to critical information obtained through the interrogation of the man who conceived it: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

This is only one of the many attacks stopped with the help of the C I A interrogation program established by the Bush Administration in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

In addition to helping break up these specific terrorist cells and plots, C I A questioning provided our intelligence community with an unparalleled body of information about al Qaeda.

Until the program was temporarily suspended in 2006, intelligence officials say, well over half of the information our government had about al Qaeda-how it operates, how it moves money, how it communicates, how it recruits operatives, how it picks targets, how it plans and carries out attacks-came from the interrogation of terrorists in CIA custody.

Former C I A Director George Tenet has declared: “I know this program has saved lives. I know we’ve disrupted plots. I know this program alone is worth more than what the F B I, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency put together have been able to tell us.”

Former C I A Director Mike Hayden has said: “The facts of the case are that the use of these techniques against these terrorists made us safer. It really did work.” Even Barack Hussein Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, has acknowledged: “High-value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qaeda organization that was attacking this country.” Leon Panetta, Obama’s C I A Director, has said: “Important information was gathered from these detainees. It provided information that was acted upon.”

John Brennan, Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, when asked in an interview if enhanced-interrogation techniques were necessary to keep America safe, replied: “Would the U S be handicapped if the C I A was not, in fact, able to carry out these types of detention and debriefing activities, I would say yes.”

On Jan. 22, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama issued Executive Order 13491, closing the C I A program and directing that, henceforth, all interrogations by U S personnel must follow the techniques contained in the Army Field Manual The morning of the announcement, Mike Hayden was still in his post as C I A Director. He called White House Counsel Greg Craig and told him bluntly: “You didn’t ask, but this is the C I A officially non-concurring.”

The president went ahead anyway, overruling the objections of the agency.

A few months later, on April 16, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama ordered the release of four Justice Department memos that described in detail the techniques used to interrogate K S M and other high-value terrorists.

This time, not just Hayden (who was now retired) but five C I A directors – including Obama’s own director, Leon Panetta objected. George Tenet called to urge against the memo’s’ release. So did Porter Goss. So did John Deutch.  Hayden says: “You had C I A directors in a continuous unbroken stream to 1995 calling saying, ‘Don’t do this.'”

In addition to objections from the men who led the agency for a collective 14 years, the President also heard objections from the agency’s covert field operatives. A few weeks earlier, Panetta had arranged for the eight top officials of the Clandestine Service to meet with the President. It was highly unusual for these clandestine officers to visit the Oval Office, and they used the opportunity to warn the President that releasing the memos

would put agency operatives at risk. The President reportedly listened respectfully, and then ignored their advice.

With these actions, Barack Hussein Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history.

But how many people know this?

Let me add another question, how many Americans really care? Uncovering the lawless actions of the Obama White House will show his dream was to start another Civil War to destroy America.  C Brewer   

MARTIAL LAW – WAKE UP AMERICA ?

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’M BACK, AFTER SOME MIND REPAIR!

It was amazing to see so many comments on the Facebook entry of my last article, “Closed for Repairs”. I really appreciate the few friends that seemed to be concerned if was quitting my writing. I just visited my WordPress site after a week of respite and was shocked that the “Closed for Repairs” posting was the number one article viewed by the world. An article that did not have a single word intriguing connotations. The fact that everyone who was interested in reading nothing was an American. How would you perceive this phenomenon? 

During the same period not one person viewed my article on the healthcare debacle. That is sad news that more Americans are interested in nothing than the health care issues. This coupled with the obvious fact that the Senate also does not care proves that idiocracy is out of control.  When some hate filled Republicans led by John McCain, two “Dizzy” females and some other Senators who exhibit mental problems voted with 100% with the Democrats to kill the healthcare work was saddening. Supporting the Democrats because they despise the President shows it is time to drain the “Senate Swamp”. The hate filled vote made it clear that the Senate and has no concern for the people suffering from Obummercare. Folks next year we can rid Congress of several Senators who voted to keep Obamacare.  

I deeply enjoyed my respite from watching the daily news. After a few days with reruns of Mash, Lucy & Desi, Maude and other oldies and it was mind refreshing. It is a crying shame that the illegals, African Americans, Millennials or Generation Y misfits have zero knowledge of a time when Americans actually liked each other.

As it has rained for the last two days and golf was not possible I watched the news again this morning. It is obvious the media like Congress have forgotten the healthcare issues. It was a small surprise to learn that Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell, took time away from his 24 day vacation to express that the President expects too much activity from the Senate. Folks this is the most obvious admission of how the “Swamp” hates Trump and the Senate is overworked. It would be refreshing to know how many people who read this article agree that Congress is “Overworked”?

Other news revealed that Mueller’s “Witch Hunt” has expanded to dig into some individual’s history hoping to discover if they ever “Jaywalked” or sipped Russian Vodka?

It was refreshing to note that Trump’s warning to North Korea was disturbing to Senator Feinstein as provoking the enemy. I expect that her staff was tired of the August vacation and woke her up to get some face time on TV. After all, the people may forget her while she is vacationing. I served in the US Navy during the Korean War nearly 70 years ago. News clips this morning showed Presidential warnings to North Korea from John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George Bush to stop their nuclear ambitions. No one slowed them down. They made great advancements while Obama courted the Muslim world and dismantled our military and nuclear capability. Now they threaten an atomic attack and who cares? The United States should have wiped them out when I was in the military. Congress is now having a 24 day vacation. America would be better off if all 100 Senators would just resign.

The most repeated news today is 1,000,000 news clips of North Korean leaders prancing and pictures of missile launches. I can never expect to see programs on TV that show harmony like I enjoyed as a boy and younger man. So I just decided to watch reruns of “Blue Bloods” and admire Tom Selleck, my TV and movie hero. I could not find any John Wayne movies and admire my oldest hero. He has already reached the age I will be on the 31st, 87 and hoping. I am praying that it will not rain in the morning so I can leave my Lazy Boy and fire up my golf cart.

I doubt many will read this but it allowed me to escape watching the news for an hour. I think I will go grocery shopping and let Norma watck NCIS reruns.

PROTESTING – THE NEW AMERICA!

I DETEST THESE DISRUPTIONS DO YOU?????

Every Monday morning the news programs scan the country for hours reporting “Protest”. This morning we have to watch over and over the Puerto Rico supporters  have parades honoring some terrorist that destroyed property and the killing of people in the name of  something they never identified.

Next we watched protest and counter-protest all over America regarding Sharia Law, the most regressive form of anti-freedom in any civilized society.

Next we watched a sitting supposed lady Senator Gillibrand from New York actually curse our sitting President on national television. This has become a new form of civility for the children of America to see someone who should be a role model for our youth crawl into the gutter to make a hate-filled point. I hope before the day is over we have someone from Christianity demand that this “Slut-mouthed” so called lady resign. Likely won’t happen as she is so powerful there is too much fear to call her what she is.

We watch debates in Congress and news specials about our crumbling infrastructure, especially bad bridges, pot hole infested roads and neglected parks. Unfortunately Congress does nothing any more but debate and do nothing, Can you imagine how much improvement could result if these professional protesters would volunteer to improve the infrastructure needs with their wasted labor protesting. This would allow them to protest by improving instead of destroying property. Cleaning up a neglected park to protest something would be so much more positive than breaking out windows or looting neighborhood stores.

Why our Congress persons or the hate-filled media clowns who promote violence with their twisted messages can’t come up with positive suggestions to help America baffles me. We need a new approach and new programs to honor people who actually do things to help our society. A program to honor military actions each week that have helped improve or protect our freedoms. This might change some opinions of the young people who seem to hate military service.

I have watched this country struggle with a depression, survive a world war, serve in our military, lose a war and go down the toilet with hippies and now become the protest capital of the world. This is quite a trip in my nearly 87 years.

I sadly watched this destruction of freedoms dissident  Americans to punish other Americans for some of the most idiotic reasons possible.

What really baffles and upsets me is “WHY”. There is not one of the 535 members in Congress who could explain why. We have a new President elected by the people who not only is trying to wake up America he is having to fight at least 500 of the elected individuals who are supposed to be leaders. Using an old phrase I have used many times our current Congress could not escape from a paper sack if both ends were open. Debate would never agree of which end to emerge so they would just stay in the bag forever. On second thought this might be better if the invited the negative media to join them.   C Brewer  June 12, 2017    

SANCTUARY AMERICA!

ONE SYMBOLIC  MOVEMENT TO  DIS-UNITE ALL FIFTY STATES!

You can argue the reasons for the flood of Sanctuary cities, counties, states or any other municipalities that have become the biggest flaunting of US laws in my lifetime. There are thousands of articles available on the internet that can drive you crazy. You can watch slanted interviews on the “Left-media” propaganda” on networks like ABC, NBC, CBS,CNN, PBS and even Congress own network, C-Span.

The article I last posted pointed out the problem of covert disruption of free speech including destruction of property and attacking fellow Americans who have free speech rights of peaceful assembly. Watching these “Cowards” hide their faces to destroy property and physically attack fellow Americans is the sickest violation of laws I have ever watched.

Let me tell you that the real reason for the sanctuary movement is to provide protection for the “Cowards” that was not available when their Parents or grandparents started the disruption movement during the Vietnam war in the 1960’s. Some like the Ayres, Clinton’s, Fonda’s, Turners had enough money backing to openly break our laws with no fear of being drafted. Most of the lowly “Cowards” fled to Canada to avoid the draft.

The current power brokers like George Soros can buy their way out of jeopardy and pay the faceless cowards to do the dirty work. They can also provide the liberal lawyers necessary to spring them free to hide in the Sanctuary locations protected by local dissidents who govern these outlaw functions. They can hide behind the publicized propaganda of protecting illegal aliens. In fact it appears that illegal aliens are the primary source of “Cowards” in some of the larger illegal entities nationwide.

Watching Congress and the Supreme Court allow this flagrant lawlessness flourish is sick. I found some words of wisdom for those who wish to get involved and help stop the law breaking forces. These words were taken from an article written by Steve Salvi, Founder, OJJPAC.org  

“The consequences of sanctuary policies.  What you can do.”   

“Military strategists understand the importance of denying an enemy geographic sanctuaries.  Sanctuaries allow an enemy time to safely operate and build up defensive and offensive capabilities and hold and take ground.  Sanctuaries for illegal aliens likewise provide an important strategic advantage over law enforcement and their ability to perform their law enforcement duties.

Sanctuary policies, official or de facto, result in safe havens (or safer havens) for illegal aliens involved in a variety of criminal enterprises.  Sanctuary policies inhibit the ability of law enforcement officers to accurately identify foreign nationals which makes it more difficult to uncover their illegal activities.  Illegal aliens face less risk of deportation too if caught by local law enforcement.  Sanctuary policies also help shield the operations of Latin American drug cartels, gangs, and terrorist cells–since their activities are less likely to be detected and real identities uncovered by local, state, or federal law enforcement.

Some sanctuary cities (e.g., Chicago and San Francisco) even receive millions of dollars in federal State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) grants to compensate for the cost of jailing illegal alien criminals–even though their city sanctuary policies act to encourage illegal alien settlement.

According to Santa Clara County  District Attorney Jeffrey Rosen, the Santa Clara County California’s sanctuary policy has put its citizens at greater risk. District Attorney Rosen proposed that  the County Board of Supervisors vote to ease its law barring local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement.  Rosen gave an example of a woman who was raped by an illegal alien who had been shielded from federal detention by the county’s policy.

To learn more about the consequences of sanctuary policies and lax immigration law enforcement, visit the Victims of Illegal Aliens Memorial and the Ojjpac homepage.”

“What you can do to stop sanctuary policies in your city and state”.

“What can you do to help stop sanctuary policies?  Get involved and demand change!  Call the President and your members of Congress (U.S. House and U.S. Senate) and demand aggressive border and interior enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.  At the state and local level, attend and testify at scheduled public meetings and determine what are your community’s policies.  If your local government or state has official or unofficial sanctuary policies, demand that the policies be repealed.

A group of citizens in Spokane, Washington, called Respect Washington, started an initiative petition in 2015 (Initiative No. 2015-1) to stop the city’s illegal alien sanctuary policy which was adopted by the Spokane City Council as Ordinance Nos. C35164 and C-35167 in October, 2014.  The group is also working on a statewide “Respect for Law” initiative petition.

Some state legislatures have either passed or are considering immigration enforcement legislation too, which you can support.  For example, in early 2015, State Senator Charles Perry, R-Lubock, Texas, introduced SB 185.  SB 185 specifically allowed local law enforcement to question immigration status and share that information with federal law enforcement.  It also allowed the Texas Attorney General to investigate citizen complaints about Texas cities that have adopted sanctuary policies”.    END

George Soros and a band on other multi-rich including banks are behind the move to eventually socialize America. This can be done by Congress if the majority of Americans agree that we need to void our Constitution and Bill of Rights legally.

I for one believe enough real Americans have awakened to the move to destroy our Republic form of Democracy and elected , legally, a new President to stop this lawlessness. The new “Sheriff Trump” has amassed a “Posse” like Sessions, Tillerson, Mattis, Mattis, Mnuchin, Pruitt, Perry and Zinke just to name a few of his new cabinet to systematically make America “Great” again.

Unfortunately as I near 87 I may not be around to see these patriots destroy the movements who have openly killed the art of making things in America by regulating everything in sight. What may not be something everyone would prioritize, I hope to see all “Tree Huggers” who have had outlawed proven forest functions to keep our National Forest beautiful. Proven methods of thinning the forests has been an asset for small Counties like Sabine in East Texas where I live.

Sabine National Forest occupies some 300 square miles of the 600 square miles in Sabine County. The only revenue the Federal Government provided since inception, as they cannot be taxes for roads, schools, etc., was a portion of revenue from selling trees to lumber companies. Regulators stopped all harvesting to keep the forest prettier and then eliminated revenue sharing with local municipalities.

Dear Jeff Sessions, please stop all Federal funding to any Sanctuary entity and hopefully all Government departments will follow suit and stop all Federal funding too. Money drives everything today, unfortunately this includes our entire court system including the Supreme Court.
