REPUBLICAN PARTY’S LAST RIGHTS!

VENOM? HATE? CHARACTER ASSINATION JEALOUSY? FEAR? LEADERLESS? AIMLESS? LOST?

Let me see how many descriptive words or phrases others would like to add to my list above to express what should be engraved on the GOP headstone. Each week another well- known Progressive, Republican-In-Name-Only (RINO), encourages the self-inflicted suicide march they are hell bent on completing before November. Today we watched Mitt Romney join the growing number of RINO’S hit the accelerator to speed up the carnage. This follows a growing list of other GOP candidates that have dropped like flies as “Trump marches on”. McConnell, Ryan, most GOP Congresspersons, the entire twisted news media and obviously Hillary and her band of Communists friends and her Airforce of “Broom Pilots”.

In his speech at the University of Utah, Romney called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud” and argued that his policies would lead to a recession. Look back four years when he ran against Obama, the biggest fraud, phony, liar and “leadership impersonator” in the history of the United States. He never accused him of anything and he has already ruined the retirement hopes for the middle class for the next 100 years.

Let me share some of the specific charges he made and some of my comments about his bravery he did not have four years ago that would have won him the Presidency. Folks if you call his actions then, anything but stupid, you must have been laying around with Sleeping Beauty waiting for Prince Charming’s kiss? Obviously when Obama kissed her most of us seniors lost a huge hunk of our life’s savings.

Romney Quotes/My comments

 

“In 1964, days before the presidential election which, incidentally, we lost, Ronald Reagan went on national television and challenged America saying that it was a “Time for Choosing.” He saw two paths for America, one that embraced conservative principles dedicated to lifting people out of poverty and helping create opportunity for all, and the other, an oppressive government that would lead America down a darker, less free path. I’m no Ronald Reagan and this is a different moment but I believe with all my heart and soul that we face another time for choosing, one that will have profound consequences for the Republican Party and more importantly, for the country”.

“If he had said this in 2012 and used Obamas lying and wrecking the economy,  facts he would be running for re-election and the Broom Pilots would be Soccer Moms again.”

“Warren Buffett was 100% right when he said last week that “the babies being born in America today are the luckiest crop in history.”

“Where was Buffet in 2102? Asleep like Romney. There is no doubt their two families have no worries. Why did Buffet get Obama to kill the Keystone Pipeline, greed and Romney must have Hathaway investments? Folks, they are not hurting like you are”.

“That doesn’t mean we don’t have real problems and serious challenges. At home, poverty persists and wages are stagnant. The horrific massacres of Paris and San Bernardino, the nuclear ambitions of the Iranian mullahs, the aggressions of Putin, the growing assertiveness of China and the nuclear tests of North Korea confirm that we live in troubled and dangerous times”.

WOW! Not one factual thing listed to fix anything. Sounds like Rubio magic. Get ready for the Trump lawyers next.

“Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished. First, the economy: If Donald Trump’s plans were ever implemented, the country would sink into a prolonged recession.”

“A few examples: His proposed 35% tariff-like penalties would instigate a trade war that would raise prices for consumers, kill export jobs, and lead entrepreneurs and businesses to flee America. His tax plan, in combination with his refusal to reform entitlements and to honestly address spending would balloon the deficit and the national debt. So even as Donald Trump has offered very few specific economic plans, what little he has said is enough to know that he would be very bad for American workers and for American families”.

“Let me put it plainly Mr. Romney, a safe prosperous future for you compared to the average American is like comparing beans and rice with porterhouse steaks and caviar. Like riding a bus compared with a private jet. There is not one person connected with our government at any level that has the foggiest idea what ordinary and especially senior citizens face every day they wake up. In my 85 years we have had a cycle that introduced “middle Class” and are now slowly eliminating it this very day. We now have “royalty like yourself and laws that everyone, especially the rich and powerful just ignore. I have written over 900 articles that can enlighten you but you would not lower yourself to read them. You live on a mountain of fantasy like our Congress.”

The President of the United States has long been the leader of the free world. The president and yes the nominees of the country’s great parties help define America to billions of people. All of them bear the responsibility of being an example for our children and grandchildren.

“Watch how he responds to my speech today. Will he talk about our policy differences or will he attack me with every imaginable low road insult? This may tell you what you need to know about his temperament, his stability, and his suitability to be president.”

“I can’t wait. You have brutally make assumptions, back stabbed Trump, accused him of stupidity, dishonesty and you have ignored what has destroyed the Republican Party at warp speed. Sir, we were both born in America, we put our pants on one leg at a time. We certainly had different lives you would not understand as silver spoons never found me in the 1930’s. I clawed my way up life’s ladder one rung at a time. I made my opportunities instead of inheriting them like you and Donald Trump. Mr. Romney, I find it shameful to watch you express your venom like you are Jesus and when you or Trump have no idea what an average American puts up with your bloated egos. Sadly we do not elect anyone anymore based on their value, we just vote against the ones who we dislike the most.

What you and the GOP does not understand is we have so many variables watching politicians carve each other up you will see Trump elected President as he is saying what the “People” want to hear. Politics has become a blood sport now as the recent death of Scalia will reveal someday. I have previously expressed that Trump will probably die of unexplained reasons, possibly before the elections.

You can read the rest if Romney’s diatribe but by now I am sick of his Paid Hit Job. I am ashamed that I voted for him even though he appeared to be better than Obummer.

DONALD TRUMP – PART TWO

Donald Trump has captured my attention deeper than any human I ever voted for since Ronald Regan. I was skeptical of Reagan at first because of his being Governor of LaLa land, the home of fruits and nuts. What he did for America has steadily been destroyed by Bush, Clinton, Bush and totally wrecked by Obama. I can’t bring myself to address Obama as Mr. or President as I have absolutely no respect for him as a man or what he has done to destroy our Constitution and States Rights.

Do I like Donald Trump? Liking him is not a leadership factor and I have never met the man. What I do respect is his proven no-nonsense leadership and a burning desire to clean up the out-of-control mess in Washington. Several of the others say they will do the same but only one, Ted Cruz, has the determination to do what the Donald has promised. Cruz will never get the nomination as he no big money supporters and will not be able to buy the nomination. He would make the perfect replacement for Joe Biden and be President after he and the Donald shake up America like it has never been done before. Everyone in politics and the sugar daddies, Soros, Buffett, the Koch’s and hundreds more who actually run the government  are scared to death of the Donald and Cruz.  In this series I am working on you will see facts that many didn’t know about him, including me..

Some love Trump and far too many spew hate but no one can deny he is thought-provoking, and clearly deserves a chance to be the Republican nominee. I hope you will read all of the articles I am working on before you write Trump off. He is abrasive and unfortunately he is the enemy of all of the others running, except Cruz.  Remember how the politicians made fun of Ronald Reagan. Reagan did not have to combat the Republicans and the 100% negative press by the networks who all also hate his guts, including Fox. 

Trump has stirred up the RINOs, like McCain, Graham, Boehner, McConnell and many more. This will be obvious in the evident during the GOP debates ( really donkey barbecues)  that are underway today. What is so obvious are the charges made and the criticisms of Trump that are amazingly unproven cheap shots. So far the Republicans, Democrats or the rabid major networks can’t find any ​negative facts from his employees or others who have done business with him. Rest assured they will dig up dirt and any highly successful person will make enemies from the zealousness of losers and ex-wives. 

I just read a great article that related some facts about the Donald that impressed me deeply, I will share them with you. “His long-term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity​ than people may think​. While it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about it”. Generous and good people rarely discuss any charity they bestow on others”. Take the time to absorb some on the “facts” you will read. I will start off with his position regarding the military.

Trump has no desire to take military action in any other country’s problems unless we are compensated for doing so. Risking our military lives or incurring major expenditures must also be compensated.  He has cited that the Iraq War was a huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used. The loss of American lives can never be compensated and the loss of Iraqi lives was horrible. Trump has made it clear that Iraq should have been required to compensate America with oil for all of the expenses we incurred. Trump added another debt that Iraq should pay for, includes the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries. How many of you knew this? I did not.

Trump is committed that America must have a strong military again. His number one priority for the federal government is national defense. He has stated that we need to groom military leaders like General Patton or General MacArthur to rebuild our military back to the strength it must be. That’s all for today, the remaining articles will address how Trump views other issues. The need for an Executive branch of government that will “Kick ass and take names” will be decided in 2016. I hope you will join me in electing Trump/Cruz.

OIL – AMERICA’S GREATEST MYSTERY

I recently read an article in Glenn Beck’s “Blaze” that has some very interesting observations. I have paraphrased some of the information and used some of the facts from the publication. These are things every American should understand. There are so many thieves and politicians meddling with oil, we are fortunate it does not cost $10 a gallon now.

Have you wondered why the president would stop the Keystone Pipeline Project that will generate thousands of jobs for US workers? This posting may help explain the President’s motivation. 

With the nation’s gas prices reaching new levels, some argue that President Obama’s recent rejection of the $7 billion, “shovel-ready” Keystone XL oil pipeline, is just another sign that Obama will eventually try to stop all domestic oil exploration. There appears be a more sinister reason behind denying the pipeline’s requisite permits — namely, to benefit billionaire Obama-supporter Warren Buffett? See if you have the same conclusions after reviewing the background on Trans Canada’s Keystone XL oil pipeline.

The Keystone XL oil pipeline was planned to transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada all the way to Texas’ Gulf Coast. The administration rejected permits to construct the northern portion of the pipeline on purely political reasons.

Then last month, Obama visited Cushing, Oklahoma, site of the world’s largest oil storage complex, to take credit for “approving” the stretch of pipeline construction that was already underway from there to the gulf coast. Obama used the tour to prop up his administrations’ energy policy, Trans Canada actually gained approvals to build the southern stretch of its pipeline months prior to Obama’s political trip to Oklahoma. Pipelines that stay within U.S. borders are not subject to presidential approval like ones running from Canada into the U.S.

Trans Canada filed an initial application to build the 1,179-mile underground pipeline in 2008, passing two State Department reviews and in February 2010, South Dakota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) granted a permit based on a thorough work up of the project.

Then the White House sent Trans Canada and others back to the drawing board in January 2012, citing environmental concerns.

To bypass special interest groups and the Environmental Protection Agency, an amendment was introduced in the Senate in March. It would have eliminated the need for a federal permit while addressing environmentalists’ worries by placing more autonomy in Nebraska’s hands. After a vote, however, Democrats killed the measure 56 to 42.

Trans Canada may not be giving up. Information on its web site indicates they plan to re-apply for a Presidential Permit to be processed in an “expedited manner”. The exhaustive record compiled over the past three plus years of regulatory review to allow for an in-service date of 2015.”

Trans Canada hopes for approval of the Presidential Permit application – which is required as the pipeline will cross the Canada/U.S. border – in the first quarter of 2013, after the election. Construction will then quickly begin. Trans Canada believes in the value of Keystone XL due to the overwhelming support the project has received. American and Canadian producers and U.S. refiners have signed 17 to 18 year contracts to ship over hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day to meet the needs of American consumers.

Keystone would provide 830,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta, Canada, to U.S. outposts and refineries on the Gulf Coast. The $7 billion project would also create some 20,000 jobs in the United States. “These are new, real U.S. jobs,” Russ Girling, Trans Canada’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement back in January. He clarified that 13,000 construction jobs would be created immediately while another 7,000 would be generated in the manufacturing sector.

Trans Canada and its supporters, including Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, have maintained that Keystone XL is vital to American livelihood. Yet in the wake of Obama’s political maneuvering, Harper deemed the U.S. an unreliable energy partner and now plans to expand his country’s crude export. The move will result in Canada eliminating the discount it once afforded the U.S. on its oil products, thus hitting drivers at the gas pump even harder.

T. Boone Pickens, observed the alienation occurring between the two neighbors when he said that”we work with the Canadians like they’re the enemy sometimes.” He added, “We tell them they can’t bring a Keystone pipeline to the United States…That’s 250 billion barrels of oil that the United States would capture for our use!”

Every American should question why the president would stop an environmentally-sound, job-boosting, oil-producing project that would benefit the nation. Why did Obama interfere with something that is financially beneficial and damage the historical Canadian-U.S., oil relationship? Do you suppose that someone else stands to benefit from his decision?

Reports indicate that Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC railroad — a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska based Berkshire Hathaway Company, would reap sizable gains by the administration’s decision to reject Trans Canada’s oil pipeline permit. Berkshire Hathaway purchased a 22% (or, $34 billion) share of the 32,000 mile railway in 2009, shortly after Obama was elected.

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern told Bloomberg. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul the oil.”

The rail option, while more expensive, would minimize environmental impact. At the same time, however, it would also worsen greenhouse gas emissions. When it comes to the Keystone oil pipeline and Buffett’s Burlington Northern, all roads seem to lead to Nebraska.

A startling connection exists as Berkshire Hathaway’s home-state and that state’s senator, Ben Nelson, who voted against the Keystone XL and lobbied that it be re-routed to avoid Nebraska. Nelson’s position to pass up the new jobs swells of other connections as he is heavily invested in Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. From 2007 to 2012 Nelson contributed $27,000 to the company itself and according to a recent financial disclosure statement from 2008, he owned between $1.5 and $6 million of the company’s stock – his largest investment in any one company to date.

Another link uncovered revealed that Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe PAC contributed $5,000 to Senator Nelson’s Nebraska Leadership PAC. In addition Berkshire Hathaway employees have supported the senator, contributing at least $75,550 to the Nebraska Democrat over the course of his political career. This was reported by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Senator Nelson penned an op-ed column on March 5, 2012 entitled “Behind Those High Gas Prices.” As you can imagine, he was quick to tell Nebraskans that the spike “has nothing to do with the Keystone Pipeline” and also “isn’t a result of domestic oil production.” Below is an excerpt from Nelson’s column:

“First, the rapid rise isn’t a result of domestic oil production. We’re producing more oil in the U.S. now than we have since 2003. As a matter of fact, under the previous Administration domestic production of crude declined every year, whereas since 2009 domestic production has increased every year.

Second, this has nothing to do with the Keystone Pipeline. The price of oil is set on the World Market and is impacted by a host of factors – including unrest in oil producing nations. It isn’t a simple supply and demand pricing issue.”

This is a bunch of hogwash we have been fed by this administration to force gasoline prices up on purpose. You can read my previous postings that prove these statements are false.

He went on to write the U.S. has in fact demonstrated “the lowest demand for gasoline in 15 years” but the price of oil “has still gone up.”

Nelson’s is now involved in overhauling financial regulation and spending more millions to create another government agency. Obama wants to set restrictions on trading derivatives; this was a substantial provision being lobbied for by Buffett that would have buffered his company from financial blows.

WSJ recently reported that the provision, sought by Berkshire and pushed by Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson in the Senate Agriculture Committee, would largely exempt existing derivatives contracts from the proposed rules. Previously, the legislation could have allowed regulators to require that companies such as Nebraska-based Berkshire put aside large sums to cover potential losses. The article adds that the change “thus would aid Berkshire, which has a $63 billion derivatives portfolio, according to Barclays Capital.” Senator Nelson has also engaged in a series of votes, including in favor of TARP funds that have benefited Buffett in some way. 

Killing the plan to transport oil via the Keystone pipeline means that Burlington Northern railroad can transport the oil. Senator Nelson and Berkshire Hathaway stand to reap substantial dividends. Likewise, Buffett ensured financial security and prosperity for his new railroad and will continue to finance his Democratic benefactors. 

The progressives and the media will slant this as just another right wing “conspiracy theory”. The Blaze article reminds those of you who don’t understand that people in power always want more power and money and money is power.  What this really represents is greed and hypocrisy masquerading as environmental activism.

Keep these people in power and suffer gas prices that will be double today’s amount. It amazes me that we sit still and let politicians rape our savings and ruin the financial future of our children.
