POLITICIAN VS BUSINESSMAN?

WE ARE WATCHING THE REBIRTH OF A NATION!

As you will see at the end of this brilliant article I have no idea who wrote this. Having been in the business world with two large Corporations, Lockheed-Martin and Halliburton I have even played one of the roles described in this article many times. Actually I never worked a day for Lockheed-Martin but they bought the company I worked for for 27 years named LTV. I started out with an aerospace related company named Temco when I finished my enlistment in the US Navy. A few years later an arbiter named James Ling, a small electrical contractor, became one of the first Americans to learn how to get control of a much larger company by being smart. Now we had Ling-Temco. A couple of years later Jim Ling gained control of a much larger company, Chance Vought, and we now had LTV or Ling-Temco-Vought. Every time we merged I was part of a team that went in for the “hatchet” work described later.

The first words you will read in this article that describes exactly what is happening in Washington D.C. states that Donald Trump may be the smartest President we ever had. You can go to the bank and be certain that Donald Trump is not only the smartest President we have ever had, he is the smartest businessman we have ever had. He is playing the fiddle while Congress and the dumbest media clowns ever allowed on the airwaves make total fools of themselves.

The winner of this largest conflict of power in my lifetime will be the American people. If the people don’t panic and just sit back and watch him make fools of every politician, news moron and the broken Justice system the people will regain control of the government. Jobs will be plentiful, profits will boom for business and taxes will be less for everyone. He can get term limits for the worst of our government, Congress itself, and that will tear down the barriers to have “Public Servants” rather than a place for Lawyers to live off of the public teat with benefits beyond reason. The career politicians have built the biggest waste of money and crooked ways to bleed the people ever created. The drained swamp will uncover so much greed and illegal activity we will have to build bigger prisons. My thanks to my often guest writer, Ron Jenkins for sharing this with me.

Hold onto your hat as you will soon be treated to read about what is really happening in the White House. The only way this can be stopped is if Trump is assassinated just like several others have been recently. I am convinced they got Justice Scalia and money assured the silence.

C Brewer September 7th 2017

Donald Trump may be the smartest President we have had for quite some time.

 

Apparently, liberals and never-Trumpers are so isolated in their political circles that they have no concept how things work in the real world of business and corporate America.

For example, they completely fail to grasp the concept of the “hatchet man.  

Allow me to explain:  

Say you are a business tycoon. You just successfully completed a large-scale acquisition and merger, bringing together multiple smaller companies into one conglomerate.  

After the merger, you want to put your own people in charge of everything. However, all those smaller companies had their own executives – and, at least for the short term- you need to keep many of them around to keep things running.

So, you keep many of those executives around, and let them retain their own senior staff.

You even appoint one of them – the head of the largest of the companies you acquired – to be the CEO of the conglomerate, and he pledges to get all the departments working together harmoniously.

After a transition period, some of them are doing fine in the new conglomerate – but others are clearly causing trouble. In fact, the one you appointed CEO is clearly a disaster.

The newly merged departments are working against each other. Furthermore, you have good suspicion he is dealing in insider trading – nothing you can take to a prosecutor, but there is a lot of circumstantial evidence building up.

Worse, he is not only doing his own dirty dealing, but it appears he may even be leaking intellectual property to your competitors, helping them take market share from you.Clearly, he has to go – and go now.  Problem is, many of the senior employees in your conglomerate are loyal to him. If you just fire him and put in your own chosen CEO, you know you could get a lot of backlash from disgruntled employees.  

And in your business, there is such a small profit-margin that you really can’t afford anything at all that threatens performance. So what do you do?

In comes the hatchet man.

The hatchet man is someone you bring in for the sole purpose of slashing the problems and shaking things up over a very short period of time – but doing it in a way that deflects any blame or blow back away from you.

As soon as the problems are hacked away, the hatchet man leaves – taking the ire and resentment with him, and leaving you free to bring in your new team for a fresh start.

This happens in the business world all the time. And Donald Trump is a businessman. He knows this. He has lived this. We’ve seen him do it on “The Apprentice.” We’ve read about it in his books.

This is not a surprise to anyone. Except for liberals and never-Trumpers.

Enter Scaramucci.

Liberals and never-Trumpers see the past weeks as proof of a Hitler-clown-circus spectacle, as evidence that Trump is unhinged and our government is in the hands of madmen.  Anyone who understands the business world and Donald Trump fully understands that what we just witnessed was a perfectly executed hatchet man maneuver.  

When Trump won the election, he essentially performed the political equivalent of an acquisition and merger.

He brought together different political factions – establishment Republicans, conservatives, tea party, religious right, moderates, independents, cross-overs, into one winning political coup.

For some, it was a hostile takeover – and if they were going to be dragged in against their will, they would sure as hell resist. This is where Reince Priebus came in.

Priebus, as the then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, was hired as White House Chief of Staff to be a sort of post-merger CEO.  It was his job to bring all these political factions together and get them to work harmoniously. But he failed.

Worse, there is ample evidence to suggest he not only failed, but worked against Trump and the Trump agenda. Look at the leaks. Look at all the chaos. Look at all the bureaucracy continuing to work at odds with the president.

Priebus and a number of other people around him – had to go.

Back to Scaramucci.

Donald Trump has known for some time that Priebus was a disaster. He was going to give him his six-month trial period – that’s a fairly common thing in the private sector.  After that, heads were going to roll. But Trump himself doesn’t want to be the hatchet man. He needs to be able to lead after the bloodbath. So what does he do?  He turns to an old friend he has known for many years – someone with nothing to lose, someone who can step in with a hatchet and hack away, someone who can then just walk away from it all and leave the slate clean. He turned to Scaramucci.

So what does Scaramucci do? He comes in swinging. He fires a few people to make a quick example. He tells others they can “resign” right now if they want to – but if not, they will be fired. Others see what is going on and just up and quit of their own accord.

That problem CEO, Priebus? Oh, the new “structure” of the organization puts Scaramucci in direct competition with Priebus and Priebus throws up his hands and says “fine, I’m out of here.”  And Scaramucci does it all in a way that is spectacularly visible to draw all the fire from Trump critics.  

So how does it all end? It ends with Trump putting in his new CEO – the one he probably wanted from day one, but held back – and the new CEO says “OK, Scaramucci – you are no longer needed here.”

Gen. Kelly now has a clean slate to start fresh – and Scaramucci takes all the heat.  Where the left and never-Trumpers see a circus freak-show, realists from the business world see a perfectly executed post-merger hatchet-man job.

The political wonks see Kelly taking command as the first sane thing to happen in this administration. They don’t realize they’ve been played, and played perfectly.  And soon we will likely see some other changes that move the Executive Branch further towards what Trump has wanted from day one. And then watch the real swamp-drainer get to work. It sucks to be Hillary Clinton right now..

Oh, and Scaramucci?

He gets a sweet deal out of all this – no doubt, he and his friend Donald Trump talked it all out first.  Scaramucci was already facing a nasty divorce that would result in the liquidation of his business to divide assets.

A little-known law allows people who are legally required to sell a business as a condition of employment in the Executive Branch (to prevent conflicts of interest) to defer the taxes on their profits from the sale.  Scaramucci was going to have to sell his company anyway due to his pending divorce. Now he and his soon-to-be ex-wife just saved $80 million in taxes.

So don’t think for a moment all this was an unplanned mess that went awry. Scaramucci and Trump knew exactly what they were doing.  All of this was planned – and foreseen. Not just by me, but by others as well.

Scott Adams wrote before Trump was inaugurated that, to his critics, the first year of Trump would be a play in three acts:

Act One – Trump is literally Hitler.

Act Two – Trump is not literally Hitler, but Trump is incompetent.

Act Three – Trump is not incompetent, but we don’t like his policies.

We’ve seen this play out. From election night up through the first 100 days, the left was out rioting and acting as though Trump taking office was literally the end of Western Civilization.

But after 100 days, when Trump had failed to do evil-dictator things like round up all the brown people and put the gays into camps and force women to stay home and have babies, it became farcical to continue the “Trump is Hitler” narrative.  And so from that 100 day point up until now, it has been the “Trump is incompetent” game.  

Look at all the chaos. Look at all the leaking. Look at all the tweets. Now, we begin Act Three.

With Priebus out and Kelly in, things will settle down. Pretty soon, all the left will have to say is “we just don’t like Trump’s policies.”…

Act Three.

And once that happens, the left is dead. Because, Trump’s policies are policies that most Americans actually agree with.  We should put America first. Build back our economy.

Create jobs.

Strengthen the military.

Protect the border. Outside a few densely-populated liberal strongholds like New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and – of course – Washington, D.C.,

Americans in general agree with all of this. So when all the left has to say is “Trump’s policies are wrong,” the left will literally be telling most of America, “you people are stupid.”

Trump will win 47 states in 2020. The left will be scratching their heads and wondering what the hell happened.

And you’ll be able to look back and say, “hey, some of us told you all this back in 2017”

DONALD TRUMP – PART ONE

The more I read the more I believe that Trump is the only hope Americans have to stop the wrecking of the Republic. He has faults, he is human, a braggart, is short-tempered just like most successful people I have ever read about. I have most of his traits myself. The trait that no one can deny is he loves America. He will stop the Liberal-Progressive tactics we have watched our President unleash to force America to self-destruct. Obama despises success, freedoms, States Rights and abets our foreign friends and foes equally to hate America and Americans. He actually wants us to hate each other and eventually cause anarchy in the streets.

I just read an article in the “GOPUSA Eagle” written Friday that you can read at their website or contact them at eagle@gopusamedia.com. The title of the article is “Donald Trump’s Greatest Hits” What I want to share are a cross-section of the comments that have been posted after people read the article. The opening paragraph should reveal my feelings about the man, not the article. Anything you see in Italic script are my words

#1. Support a not so politically correct Donald Trump who has cajones and will tell it like it is, 🙂 who is NOT a lying, spineless, wimpy, corrupt self-serving political politician.

#2 As soon as he gets in the White House he can call it the “Trump Palace.” Go Donald. You have more support than you know.

#3 Hate to be the skunk at the garden party, but Donald Trump has higher “Unfavorable” numbers than Hillary Clinton and he LOSES to her by 12 pts. in General Election, according to Quinnipiac and other polls. So far, only 3 Republicans beat her, including my favorite, Gov. Scott Walker, who beats her by 9 pts. Others by less.

#4 The polls on The Donald are skewed. The media is having a hard time bringing Trump down, so manipulating polls are about the only thing they can do.

#5 Is it true Trump’s companies applied for over 1,000 visas for immigrant employees? This could be a problem.

#6 “Is it true Trump’s companies applied for over 1,000 visas for immigrant employees?” Huh? Do you not see the difference between applied for visas legally and the attempt of Tinkerbell Obama to grant amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrant?

#7 Newt got standing ovations when he dished it back to the press. Trump is getting standing ovations for the same thing. The press knows they’re hated and Rino’s know they’re hated and they don’t give a damned. It’s time the American public throws them out of the picture. They are the reason America is failing and the constitution is shredded.

#8 It is the fault of the American people who voted in, and in many cases continues to vote in the *** individuals that you speak of. Kind of like the old Pogo line, “We have met the enemy, and they are us!”

#9 Yes, they were voted in because they promised to deliver and up until now they were all we had to choose from. NOW we have Trump who may or may not ultimately deliver. But at least he is talking the talk that millions want to hear. Unlike Obama I believe Trump is honest. We shall see.

#10 The head of the RNC has to go, with the rest the RINOS in Congress. Reince Priebus is nothing but a politically correct hack, who has no clue on how a Presidential nominee should run a campaign. John McCain and Mitt Romney ran terrible campaigns. They might as well have been zombies in The Walking Dead. The Republicans need someone who will attack the liberal socialist media and attack the DemoRAT Party when the DemoRATS play the war on women card, the Al Sharpton race card and the rich are not paying their fair share card!

#11 (a comment on number 10) Waking zombies… Perfect description of those two. McCain deliberately threw that election. And McCain has the nerve to show his nasty face and open his stupid mouth. Obama’s administration has been such an outrage, it’s going to take an outrageous Trump to fix it.

#12 (a comment on number 10) McCain ran one of the poorest campaigns I can ever remember. He acted as if he was on tranquilizers. There was no life to him and left Sarah Palin mauled by the media sharks. I listened to Romney’s 47% speech again. He said absolutely nothing wrong but once attacked he didn’t have the strength or spirit to fight back. There was zero support from his party and he gave the same exact speech in every city/town in the last 48 hours to the election. It is becoming clearer we have a one party system and Trump demonstrates he’s not part of it. The GOP doesn’t deserve another dime or support unless they clean house and build a conservative base again. Stick a fork in it!

#13 I really am waiting to see the Trump – Hillary face off. I hope he leaves her in tears, I know he can take her old man in a street fight if he is stupid enough to try to defend her.

#14 surprisingly, this might be one of the FEW times i actually willfully tune into a Political debate. Just to see Trump crush all the others.

#15 Donald Trump is not my first pick…but if he can handle this first debate as well as he has handled the media…he may very well become my first pick. I, like many others, are tired of the milk toast all talk and no action Republicans who cower to the media and constantly somehow believe they will win them over. Trump is a realist and calls them out on their BS and little gamesmanship. They have done enough damage to this country with their pretending to be unbiased but slant everything so carefully as to make conservatives and tea party people look like uncaring racial bigots who ruin the environment, shoot everyone and constantly abuse poor people. Geez…enough damage has been done to this country. THANK YOU DONALD for standing up and saying what we all have been saying for a long time…but only can voice our frustrations on forums like this one.

#16 (a comment on #15) the republicans are wimps and you hit it right on the head when you said the republicans cower to the media and somehow believe they will win them over. That’s the classic definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Trump is fresh and bold and pushes back. Go Trump Go!

#17 (Comment on #15 also) I, like many others, are tired of the milk toast all talk and no action Republicans who cower to the media and constantly somehow believe they will win them over….They have done enough damage to this country with their pretending to be unbiased but slant everything so carefully as to make conservatives and tea party people look like uncaring racial bigots who ruin the environment, shoot everyone and constantly abuse poor people…So, then why isn’t Trump your first pick? It sounds like you’ve got the elite Repubs pegged.

#18 Do you know how many years I’ve dreaded watching the news now? At least 7! Sometime I have to stay away from the news for a week or two because I’m so disgusted and ashamed of my country that I get depressed hearing it.

Now I sweep the stories every day hoping for another Trump smack down story. When he smacks the RINO’s I cheer all the more! Trump has injected life into a dying party. He has injected truth into a lying party. I think a Trump/Cruz ticket would be just about perfect. Then if we could get congressional term limits we might have a shot at getting America strong again and keeping America strong. Man, do I agree with this. CB

Go Trump Go!

#19 The media have crawled back into their holes after boosting Trumps popularity on national TV. I believe Donald has found a tune that many of the apathetic white folks are hearing. The white vote is huge and Trump is talking directly at them. White votes matter.

#20 All people here legally lose jobs because of illegals, but legal Hispanics lose more than whites, and blacks lose most of all. Young people lose because illegals take entry-level jobs, again its black young people who lose the most and have done the worst under Obama. All Americans would benefit from closing the border and from better policies all around.

There are 13 more pages of comments I would like to include but if you can’t see that people are fed up, you’re either blind, have a closed mind, dumb, inflexible, illiterate or an illegal alien. Holy smokes I just defined a DemoRat.

I have never in my 85 years seen a candidate for President that is being attacked by both political parties. Even Fox News has joined the liberal news media and every right-wing nut who can write his name by piling on “The Donald”. The first debate Thursday will be programmed by Fox to attempt to destroy Trump with old news stories. The media only publishes or broadcasts negatives like interviews with someone’s ex-wife in an attempt to smear those like Trump. Maybe that’s why I never chose to be a politician?

I hope you enjoyed my 847 articles as I am having some old age health issues that could impair my ability to continue. I certainly hope not but one never knows! C Brewer

REPUBLICAN STRATEGIES!

Yesterday I received a package from the Republican Party advising me that the 2016 Presidential Election is going to take a massive grassroots effort across America. I was pleasantly surprised they has a plan beyond destroying Donald Trump.

Enclosed was my official “2015 CONGRESSIONAL CENSUS DOCUMENT registered CODE #J15PM057B”

“Mr. Brewer, because of your high level of political involvement, your personal input on the questions in your census document is critical to our nation’s future.

This is the first time our Party has taken a Congressional District census on such a major scale and I truly hope we can count on you taking part in this all-important project. Tour completing and returning your 2015 Census Document is central to our ability to devise a winning Republican strategy in your area as we prepare for the all-important Presidential election.”

I felt so important I immediately stopped reading the full four page letter and sat down and completed filling out my Census Document. I have done this at least ten times in my 85 years. Then I scanned the remaining four page letter that was signed by Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. To make sure I don’t slant anything let me share the following two paragraphs below his signature which explain the real reason I got the letter.

P.S. “Mr. Brewer, as a registered participant in our 2015 Census Project, you are on the front line of the battle to shape Republican priorities for our nation as we work to better target our message and devise a winning strategy for our candidates in Texas. Today I am counting on your help to ensure we meet that goal.

So please, help the RNC begin implementing the critical operations we need for the 2016 Presidential election by completing your 2015 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT CENSUS AND RETURNING IT WITH A GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION of $25, $59, $100, $250, $500 or even $1,000 in the enclosed envelope”. Guess what I had to pay the postage. They do accept credit cards.

The document was impressive and the right questions were included to inform them of my opinions. Unfortunately they do not give you a way to express your feelings and make specific comments about anything. Anyone who knows me is well aware of my political positions and my opinions about nearly any subject you would choose to discuss. As they did not give me a chance to voice my true position, I included the following letter with my Census. This made me feel like I had really tried hard to be honest.

July 23, 2015

Dear Mr. Priebus

I just received your letter and I will take the time to fill it out and pay for postage so you can throw it in the trash. I am 85 and it is criminal to watch the GOP commit suicide every Presidential election. You don’t have one Republican Party you have two and the enemy is yourself. I stopped donating to any political party as no one represents common sense anymore.

The GOP Congress is leaderless and will never accomplish anything as long as term limits are not the law. Politics has become a career just in my lifetime and no one represents my conservative views any more. Money is the only way to get elected and that is wrong and you and the rest in power know it. All voters are not Democrats and stupid.

Sadly I no longer get to vote for anyone any more as no one is a leader in either party. People like me have only two choices in voting, we vote against a candidate and often neither one running as both are useless lawyers who can’t make a living in Law. So we just skip casting a vote period. I know I have wasted my time but I feel better trying to wake you up.
