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?
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.
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.

FREEDOM & PROMISE!
“For many years the House and Senate built a great wall.
While fighting over health care they had a great fall.
All the bureaucrats, Democrats and the lobbyist men,
Never want Congress to work together again”.
“America is filled with hate and ill will that has divided us,
By people like Schumer, Obama, Pelosi and George Soros.
After eight long years of destroying our freedoms and peace
America with Clinton faced another eight years of fleece.”
“Despite the hate, venom and desires of a biased media,
Unhappy American voters finally elected a leader.
Trump was his name and a Swamp he discovered,
With the people’s support our freedoms will be recovered”.
“We are at war with enemies both within and world wide,
Both hate our freedoms and Americans must decide.
The Socialists Demoncrats with Obama in charge.
Opened the door to the Muslims, world’s enemy at large.”
“If enough real Americans support Trump in his drive,
To provide jobs and stop welfare from being our strive.
America will return to its place as a leader so desired,
And prove that free people are that asset required.”
Happy Thanksgiving from a freedom loving 87 year old veteran and now a Poet who loves this Country so dearly.
Watching Fox News, the only media outlet with sanity, and reading news from the blogosphere is devoid of what the people really desire. The only person in Congress who votes with the Democrats, Bernie Sanders, appears to explain what he wants. The rest of the Democrats in Congress have no idea what they want but are in lock step against anything the Republicans want. The leadership in Congress, Republicans, have so many different things they want only a wizard would ever decipher them. So far the only thing everyone on Congress agrees on is taking vacations.
People in California would likely vote to succeed from the Union and mandate Spanish as their language. When their taxes rose to pay for their welfare paradise they would be easily annexed by Mexico without any military protection. Hollywood would be happy, their State leadership would be happy but would the majority of the people be happy? I would be happy to lose the assortment of left wing nuts like Pelosi, Brown, Feinstein, Boxer and Maxine Waters. This would be a plus for Congress. I would hope our Texas esteemed Congressional loser, Sheila Jackson Lee, would immigrate to Mexiformia.
Next one would hope that Rahm Emanuel would encourage everyone in Illinois succeed from the union and create the country of “Mayhem”. This would allow Trump to build another wall around the entire new country. The average criminal could not swim out as his banned guns and the weight of ammo would cause him to drown. Sane people would move to Indiana or Wisconsin snd the killing rate would eventually eliminate everyone. I would be happy and Congress would be better, maybe.
Alaska has sent one Senator Lisa Murkowski to Congress that is obviously a Republican in Name Only (RINO). I hope the people of Alaska are happy with Obamacare while it destroys small business in every State in the union. No small business can survive if they provide healthcare in the US anymore. These Americans have no voice watching their meager profits go to the insurance giants while the people who do work are going broke with premiums that double every year. This does not make me happy as a company I own a part of, had to cancel insurance benefits or go broke. Are the people of Alaska proud of this Senator?
Kentucky suffers while another RINO, Rand Paul, just wants face time so he can try to be a President someday. His failure to support overturning Obamacare is destroying hard working people in every industry as even the large companies no longer provide insurance for new hires in every State. I suppose the people of Kentucky are happy? I am not.
On to Maine with Senator Susan Collins apparently makes the people happy by supporting Obamacare now. Like all of the maverick Senators so far she appears to just be bought off by special interest like Murkowski, Paul, McCain and now possibly joined by Mike Lee and one of my Senators, Ted Cruz. I could keep going but it would be redundant.
It would be wonderful if FOX NEWS would send out its array of news presenters to poll the people in every State to find out exactly what the people want. Congress operates on who pays the most to support or oppose everything. It appears that George Soros owns the entire Democratic party and every media outlet but FOX. Should he buy FOX the propaganda machine would be complete. His ownership of the Democrats makes it easy for him to find the few Rino’s he needs to manipulate the entire Congress. With this power he will own America if the people do not listen to Trump.
Folks in my opinion it boils down to a war on who runs America and its future. It is Soros or Trump. I like Trump as you must know. Soros will win if the people do not rise up and clear out Congress with some real Americans.
Everyone who might read this needs to speak up and it would be nice to see if anyone agrees with me? I do not expect anyone to tell me. C Brewer
My friend, Ron Jenkins, just sent me this message and I hope posting it on my WordPress site it will get some broader exposure. If we the people can just get Congress to stop the pissing contests and help the people and Donald Trump stop the race to Socialize America. You can help by sharing this with everyone you know and hopefully build enough resistance to the Democrats plan to wreck the country and stir up more resistance and damage to people and property with demonstrations.

The following has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer programmer. He didn’t expect his essay — a tart 11-point list of “rights” Americans don’t have — to become an Internet legend.
NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION
We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great- grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a….. Bill of NON-Rights.’
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of dummies, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing [nor a college education]. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes and freeloaders who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes and freeloaders.
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.
ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you get the blue juice.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, [loot], or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking nation. We don’t care where you came from, English is our language. Learn it!
ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage.
This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it.
AUTHOR’S FOOTNOTE: If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don’t have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don’t. I just think it’s about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States must speak out because if you don’t, who will?
I just shared this with some 700 others, will you? CB
First let me define who are the people? People vote to elect Congresspersons. Voters are supposed to be 18 years old and US citizens. Our founders believed as I do that they should be 21 like I was when I first voted. Today Congress must feel that it should be 26 as they defined this as the age parents are responsible to care for them. This must still be the age our Senate feels to be the age of adult responsibility as they failed to overturn and repeal “Obamacare” that established this idiotic age requirement.
How dumb Americans have become to allow Congress to let an 18 year old child vote, but require a parent to be responsible for them until they are 26. I have shared this before but allow me to include my own path to adulthood to support my feeling voters should be 21. I graduated High School at 16. I enlisted, with my parents consent, in the US Naval Reserve when I reached the ripe old age of 17. Was I an adult, no, no, no. I just thought I was. My request for active duty was accepted long before I was 18. I can assure you after completion of “Boot Camp”, I was an adult in every facet of respect, responsibility and love of my country. I was still a boy when I got married at 18, became a father at 19 and I was an adult by then. I still had to wait until I was 22 to vote for a President.
Today we have children who usually graduate at 18 and are shipped off to college by parents who seem to feel they have done their job. They enter a college or university to be educated by professors who are not mainstream Americans. Ninety percent of the people who take over the minds of the children are left of center extremist who feel our forefathers were senseless when they created our Republic form of government. Most of these parents are good people but have no idea or concern that over the next four years their children are being brainwashed. Some, but not very many, of these children understand they are being manipulated and can get an education by ignoring the mind games.
Little by little we have created a society that has allowed Congress to establish an “Elite Society” of Americans. They make laws that force the people to obey them and exempt themselves from having to comply, even after they leave office. Watching our Justice Department ignore lawless actions like we observed by the Clinton’s and other “Elite” class individuals is sickening. There were enough lawless actions by government employees over the last eight years to fill an entire prison. Supreme Court Justices can vote contrary to the Constitutional laws and never be even questioned. Congress is the only body that can impeach but they really don’t feel that “Elite Americans have to obey the laws. How many of you even know what Congress is elected to do? To help you, if you even care, the following might give you a brief idea.
The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two chambers: the Senate and ,the House of Representatives.
The Congress meets in the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Both senators and representatives are chosen through direct election, though vacancies in the Senate may be filled by a gubernatorial appointment. Congress has 535 voting members: 435 resentatives and 100 Senators. The House of Representatives has six non-voting members in addition to its 435 voting members. These members can, however, sit on congressional committees and introduce legislation. These members represent Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms representing the people of a single constituency, known as a “district”. Congressional districts are apportioned to states by population using the United States Census results, provided that each state has at least one congressional representative. Each state, regardless of population or size, has two senators. Currently, there are 100 senators representing the 50 states. Each senator is elected at-large in their state for a six-year term, with terms staggered, so every two years approximately one-third of the Senate is up for election.
To be eligible for election, a candidate must be aged at least 25 (House) or 30 (Senate), have been a citizen of the United States for seven (House) or nine (Senate) years, and be an inhabitant of the electing state when elected.
The Congress was created by the Constitution of the United States and first met in 1789, replacing in its legislative function the Congress of the Confederation. Although not constitutionally mandated, in practice since the 19th century, Congress members are typically affiliated to the Republican Party or to the Democratic Party and only rarely to a third party or as independents.
Hopefully this will refresh everyone’s civics knowledge. My thanks to Wikipedia for the material.
The Progressive-Liberal wingnuts have successfully lowered the voting age, placed enough radical Jurists on the Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and infiltrated every College and University that exists. Their desire for Socialism could be fulfilled by emigrating to Europe that would make everyone here happier.
Congress has vacated their responsibilities by creating the “Elite” status that “MUST” be eliminated. As they are the only ones with the power to erase the super status they have created the people must do their job. A seat in Congress is filled by the people voting for someone. In most cases today anyone could be better than the featherbedding array of “Elites” we have now serving.
Congress is leaderless folks. Any group of Americans that care would not take a month’s vacation when the people are suffering. The Republicans that voted to keep Obamacare just because they hate Trump should be charged with treason. The Democrats that saddled the people with this Socialist monstrosity called Obamacare should be in prison too.
Until the people demand term-limits on Congress this debacle will just get worse. People like Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer and Ryan could not lead or manage a hamburger business. My apology to those who know how to manage a hamburger business but most voters today would freak out if I had said IBM, Texaco or other Fortune 500 businesses.
A few years ago the IRS took over a combination bar and house of ill repute in Nevada which was legal. It only took the government a few months to let the place go bankrupt. Had Congress been responsible, they would have moved it to Washington, legalized it and built a new building to house it. As its services would be free to Congresspersons it would have then gone bankrupt.
The biggest enemy of the people today is the 535 “Elite” Congresspersons. They will continue to bankrupt the USA and work halftime until the voters throw them out. Why not start next year when 435 in the House are up for re-election. It will take longer to flush the Senate toilet as only a third are up for re-election next year.
What are your thoughts? I will publish them unedited if you take the time to read this. C Brewer 8/26/17
A MESSAGE TO ALL REAL AMERICANS!
I just received this magnificent article from my great friend, Jack Peck. I chose to publish the best, most honest and extremely well written article I have read in a long time, including my own work. I will warn you that this article contains some rather unusual language that might be offensive to a prude. Having volunteered and joined the US Navy at age seventeen for nearly five years the language in this article are rather mild by comparison. Folks, this article puts the rubber to the roads with facts and scary details that have been in existence far too long.
I encourage you to share this with every real American who must learn how to stop the Progressive ruin of what is now the Did-United States of America. If you are happy with the way our country has been heading may God save your soul. It is Trump or Socialism. I pray that enough of those asleep will wake up and help Trump drain the Washington swamp, starting with getting the Senate’s attention or firing up the voters to defeating every sitting Democrat and every Republican in name only thrown out ASAP. Let me know if you enjoy this article? Please. C Brewer 8-11-17
By Evan Sayet:
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer:
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.
The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.
With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.
During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”
General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.
That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.
First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal. Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”
Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.
Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat. They need to respond This leaves them with only two choices.
They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery
The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.
Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s, church.
Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.
This makes “going high” a non-starter for CNN. This leaves them no other option but to ratchet up the fake news, conjuring up the next “nothing burger” and devoting 24 hours a day to hysterical rants about how it’s “worse than Nixon.”
This, obviously, is what CNN has chosen to do. The problem is that, as they become more and more hysterical, they become more and more obvious. Each new effort at even faker news than before and faker “outrage” only makes that much more clear to any objective observer that Trump is and always has been right about the fake news media.
And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes. Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.
Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme. This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him. If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.
Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.
This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.
So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years
So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights
