That was the America First battle cry for decades as the America Last crowd tried to mold us into their version of a second-rate power and potential third world hellhole.  For administration after administration we were lectured about how we had to drive less, trade in our SUVs for tiny little Obama Clown Cars to reach “Energy Independence.”  Now after less than six months of the Trump Administration long stalled pipelines are flowing, America is one of the major oil exporting nations, the cost of gasoline is dropping due to the expanding supply, OPEC is freaking because we’re fracking, and we’re talking about “Oil Dominance.”

Combine that with a resurgent coal industry and we’re beginning to see the outlines of making America great again.

If we can get a healthcare bill that allows the free market to fix the problem, if we can repeal two regulations for every new one (so far Mr. Trump is repealing sixteen for every new one), if we can resist the pressure of the neo-cons for war in Syria, or Iran, or Russia, or anywhere, if we can avoid the political assassination of impeachment we may have a chance to right the Ship-of-State that’s been listing hard to port for generations.

Those are some big “Ifs.”  The political establishment, that two headed bird of prey that constitutes the Republicrat Government Party is fixated on the destruction of the Trump presidency.  They must destroy him and declare that his election was an aberration, a mistake that has to be rebuked and reversed.  If Mr. Trump, a non-politician can succeed than it reveals the truth.  We don’t need professional politicians and technocrats to run the bewildering bureaucracy these same hacks and pencil pushers have created.

We now have a Special Counsel investigating a non-crime.  We have House and Senate committees spending all day every day investigating things they know are cut from whole cloth, castles in the air.  The Progressive Republican majorities in Congress are unable to reverse the travesty of affordable healthcare that costs more.  The courts provide injustice as they block obviously lawful acts of the President because they didn’t like his rhetoric while a candidate.  What is the long and short of all this obstructionism?  The political class and their allies in the chatocracy are determined to reverse the results of the 2016 election.  Or at least to bog the administration down with trumped up investigations to the point they’re paralyzed and ineffective.  Why?  Because they didn’t win and they can’t allow a non-politician to succeed that’s why.

For years the political hucksters told us we had to lower our expectations.  They told us we had to make amends and pay reparations for all the evil we’d done.  We had a president making apology tours, bowing to foreign rulers, and in general doing all he could to fulfill the dreams of his anti-colonial father.

Finally we have a leader who believes America can be great again.  Finally we have a leader who proudly says we should believe in, project, and defend America first.  This is just too much for the apparatchiks who hang on like a drowning man to a life preserver to the levers of power in the bureaucratic Rube Goldberg machine that is the federal behemoth.

How do we break the log jam?

Enter my new political party, the Telephone Book Party.  Every two years we pick the first 535 names out of a phone book and that’s our congress.  Then two years later we try another phone book.  At least we’d have some regular people and maybe even a few working people in there instead of these feather-bedding plutocrat wannabes making laws for everyone else that don’t apply to them.

Seriously we have to do something to break out of the death spiral.  If the deadweight would get out of the way and pass a simple healthcare fix such as Senator Cruz’s suggestion of allowing insurance companies to offer affordable policies without all the required Obamacare bells and whistles.  If they would pass tax reform and build the wall President Trump would soar to the top of the polls.  So, you can be assured none of that is going to happen.

What can we do?  We rallied in unprecedented numbers to elect a non-politician to break the cycle and rejuvenate the American dream of personal freedom and economic opportunity.  You can see how well that’s going?

If the Constitution was written expressly to institute and maintain a limited government and we have what we have how can we say it’s a success at the moment?  Dare we say it, the Constitution has failed.  Perhaps it’s time to reassess the social contract by which we order and live our lives.  If ¾ of the States call for a convention to consider amendments according to Article V of the Constitution such a convention shall convene.  Currently twelve States have voted for such a convention.  Thirty-four are needed.  Many fear such a convention.  However, if what we have now is no longer working why should we hesitate?  The Founders and the Framers didn’t hesitate.  They did what was needed to birth this great experiment in human freedom.  Should we hesitate to re-birth it now that it’s become ossified with precedent and political machinations?

We need to plumb the depths of our hearts and the recesses of our souls to find the courage and fortitude to rebuild the walls and pinnacles of human freedom.  Just as the ridiculed advice of drill baby drill led us from energy subservience to energy dominance maybe we need a new deck and not just a new deal?

When Your Strategy Doesn’t Work Check Your Tactics July 19, 2017

The Republican House voted more than fifty times to repeal Obummercare. Even the Republican Senate did the same thing a few times while the Progressives’ Obamassiah was running the State and not just the Deep State.  Now that the Republicans have the whole shooting match they can’t seem to hit the target.

Maybe it’s the strategy of doing it all in one BIG omnibus bill filled with payoffs, bribes, and meant to restructure the entire healthcare industry in one fell swoop that is causing the problem.  I know, I know the perpetually re-elected love their omnibus mega-bills just because they can shoehorn in massive payoffs and bribes without anyone being the wiser, but this just isn’t working.

Besides if the vote in November was for anything it was for ending business as usual.  It was for reining in the two-headed Republicrat bird of prey.  It was for righting the Ship of State before it crashes on the reef of bankruptcy.  It was for taking control of our Republic from the technocrats and the professional socialist redistributionist hustlers and returning it to the hands of those who work to make America great, again.

Obviously from the on-going “There’s a Russian Under Every Bush” reality show in Congress the inmates are still running the asylum in the capital of the world.  The Republican variety of Progressives after all their valiant efforts to repeal Obummercare when there was no chance it would actually repeal Obummercare don’t really want to remove the governments talons from one sixth of our economy.

An axiom of socialist logic is that once an entitlement is enacted it can never be repealed because the people become strung-out on the idea that someone owes them something.  Have you ever tried taking candy from a baby or a bone from a dog?  It adds up to about the same thing as trying to convince people addicted to free stuff that they don’t need the free stuff.

We have a President who wants to fulfill his campaign promises.  He wants to repeal Obummercare and replace it with sensible free market solutions, he wants to lower taxes for working people and small businesses, he wants to allow Corporations to re-patriate the hundreds of billions locked up overseas because of confiscatory taxes at home, and he wants to build the wall.  He wants to do all these things, and if he was able to do them we would once again have a health care system that is dynamic, cutting edge and providing the best care for the most people, the economy would take off like a rocket, and with the tide of migration stopped those who are here would have the breathing space to assimilate and become Americans.  If he could accomplish these things he would be a shoe-in for re-election and end up as one of the most successful presidents in History.  This is exactly why the best Congress money can buy will never pass any of these things.

Instead the plutocrats of the Potomac are playing legislative games.  They are using their Omnibus hand-jive to mask the fact that their repeal doesn’t really repeal very much.  They want to keep the taxes, keep the mandates, and keep the subsidies.  They want to bail out the insurance companies, payoff their donors, and pad the bill with bribes for every lobbyist and special interest group with enough clout to get skin in the game.

Luckily we have some watchmen on the walls who are using every megaphone they can find to warn us about the sow’s ear being passed off as a silk purse.  Senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee are leading the fight.  Congressmen like Dave Brat are speaking truth to power and shining a light in the darkness.

If the Republicans were really serious about repeal and replace they wouldn’t use the omnibus absurdity, but they would instead deal with this in bite size chunks.  Repeal Obummercare and return the country to the status quo ante.  Then pass individual bills to make the changes they want to see.  For instance one bill to provide pre-existing condition coverage, another to allow insurance companies to sell across state lines, another for tort reform, another to streamline the FDA, etc.

All these bills could be just a few pages long written in Standard English instead of the hundreds and thousands of pages of insurance speak that clutter the omnibus monstrosities.

In other words, when your strategy doesn’t work check your tactics.  If the Mitch, Paul, and the GOP Pretenders were serious about fulfilling the campaign promises they made they would give us a hundred little victories instead of one major defeat.  But if they did that President Trump would succeed.  And if President Trump succeeds he points out the fact that we don’t need these professional politicians to run our world.  We can run it just fine ourselves.

Today it’s Eurasia Tomorrow it’s Eastasia July 13, 2017

If you’ve never read George Orwell’s 1984 you might miss this reference.  It exposes the unreal reality show that’s called foreign relations by some and “The Great Game” by those who play it.  The USSR was Hitler’s mortal enemy until he signed a non-aggression pact which lasted until he invaded.

Today the show must go on and for the show to go on there must be a villain.  Enter the “NEW” Hitler.

The Media Cartel constantly pushes Russia forward as our enemy and their leader Vladimir Putin as the new Hitler.  We are told he constantly attacks freedom wherever it is found and that he is trying to re-create that failed socialist nightmare, the USSR.

What Putin says as opposed to what we’re told he says:

From his annual Christmas press conference in 2016 here are some excerpts of what our modern day Hitler had to say.

In a nearly four-hour question and answer session, the Russian president held forth on the state of his country and the world, saying that there is an international push for a New World Order that will “remove national sovereignty” and “destroy identity and of God-created diversity.” 

To reach this goal, Putin states that Western elites have begun rejecting the roots that their society was built on.

Many Western states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized.”

In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized. There, politics treats a family with many children as equal to a homosexual partnership (juridically).

The excesses and exaggerations of political correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimization of parties that promote the propaganda of pedophilia.

“The people in many European states are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are indeed frightened to speak about them.”

Putin says that the situation has become so extreme in Western culture, that people are now taught that “Faith in God is equal to faith in Satan”. To say otherwise would be to risk being politically incorrect — the great crime of our age.

Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or ‘neutrally’ renamed, as if one were ashamed of those Christian holidays. With this method one hides away the deeper moral values of these celebrations.

“And these countries try to force this model onto other countries, globally. I am deeply convinced that this is a direct way to the degradation and primitivization of culture. This leads to deeper demographic and moral crisis in the West. What can be a better evidence for the moral crisis of a human society (in the West) than the loss of its reproductive function?

Today nearly all ‘developed’ Western countries cannot survive reproductively, not even with the help of migrants.

Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values which have formed and been developed over millennia, people will inevitably lose their human dignity.”

Putin was unapologetic about Russia’s determination to defend Western values.

And we think it is right and natural to defend and preserve these moral (Christian) values.”

At the same time as this process at a national level in the West, we observe on an international level the attempts to create a unipolar, unified model of the world, to relativize and remove institutions of international right and national sovereignty. 

“In such a unified, unipolar world there is no place for sovereign states. Such a world needs merely vassals. 

“From a historical perspective, such a unipolar world would mean the surrender of one’s own identity and of God-created diversity.”

Does that sound like Hitler to you?  If it does perhaps you should re-read Mein Kampf because it doesn’t quite read the same to me.  Many of these are the same comments made by conservatives in America.  The multicultural politically correct progressives are leading the West down the primrose path to cultural destruction.

Instead of the moral fiber to stand up for and defend Western values and civilization we are offered the corrupt substitute of the Neocons, war.  We may have the most powerful armies and the most destructive weapons.  But are they being used to defend who we are.  Or are they being used to feather the nests of oligarchs and plutocrats who live in gated communities and will never be impacted by the mess they are making?

The Political/Military/Industrial/Media Complex always needs an enemy.  They must have a villain if they are to sell there shopworn tales to the gullible.  Today it’s Eurasia.  Tomorrow it’s Eastasia.  Yesterday it was Saddam.  Today it’s Putin.

Supporting what America stands for does not necessarily translate into blindly supporting who stands for America.

This is not an article promoting Vladimir Putin as anything besides what he is, the nationalistic leader of Russia.  It is an article pointing out that in many ways we are being sold a bill of goods.

There is turmoil in the Ukraine and Crimea has rejoined Russia not because the new Hitler invaded but because of American instigation of a coup against a democratically elected president and the installation of a handpicked replacement.  It is America and not Russia that is acting contrary to the accepted laws of the UN in Syria.  Russia is the ally of the UN recognized government.  The USA operates in contravention of the UN rules of engagement.

The Neocons and their army of Deep State Bureaucrats continue to plot, propagandize, and manipulate no matter who is in power.

We don’t need to be the straw man or the cat’s paw for any backroom gang of ideologues.   What we need is what we voted for, “America First!’ and “Make America Great Again!”  Let’s not get sidetracked into a war with Russia, China, Iran, or Bolivia.

We need our president doing what he does best inspiring Middle America.  I am fan of inspirational words and The Donald knows how to ring my bell.  In his speech to the Polish people he said, “The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.”

Hopefully our president will see through all the blah-blah-blah in the Media, in Congress, and among the Deep State Government Party hacks.  Keep the peace and allow us the freedom to chase our dreams and pursue our destinies.

Exposing the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel July 11, 2017

Recent revelations by the last investigative reporter in America, James O’Keefe the founder of Project Veritas, expose the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media; the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel for what it is. A conglomeration of private and publicly sponsored corporations dedicated to leading us from America to Amerika.

When Project Veritas released a fourth secretly recorded video episode in its CNN series.  In this episode, the presstitutes’ worst nightmare of reality TV, a Project Veritas reporter spoke with CNN associate producer Jimmy Carr who according to his LinkedIn page has been with CNN since 2013 as a production assistant and associate producer.  In the video Carr doesn’t appear to know he’s being recorded.  The Veritas reporter asks if it “would be fair to question the intellect of the American voter.”

“Oh, no. They’re stupid as s—,” replied the CNN “New Day” associate producer.

Carr went on, “On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he’s really bad at this, and that he does not have America’s best interests,” said Carr.

“We recognize he’s just f—ing crazy.”

“Here’s the deal: This is a man who’s not actually a Republican,” Carr continued. “He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn’t believe anything that these people believe.”

“Ninety percent of us are on board with just the fact that he’s crazy,” he added.

Project Veritas also released a video of a medical producer at CNN saying that while he believes the Trump-Russia narrative is “bulls—,” CEO Jeff Zucker has instructed his employees to focus on it to help boost the network’s ratings.

According to Washington Free Beacon, in the video, CNN producer John Bonifield said the network’s focus on potential ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia is based on ratings.  The pull quotes are amazing.

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof,” Bonifield said of the Russia story. It is unclear when he made the statement.

“And so I think the president is right to say, like, ‘Look, you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof,'” Bonifield said.

Once again according to Washington Free Beacon, Bonfield explained that ratings motivate CNN’s focus on the Russia story. Asked why the network aired so much Russia coverage, Bonifield said, “It’s ratings.”

“Our ratings are incredible right now,” he added.

Bonifield also said that the emphasis on Russia came from upper management. He detailed a meeting in which President Jeff Zucker advised staff to focus on the Paris climate accord for a day and a half before returning to Russia.

“The CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said, ‘Good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with it. Let’s get back to Russia,'” Bonifield said.

Bonifield described a jaded business culture at CNN and in cable news generally.

“All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re just like, ‘That’s adorable, that’s adorable. This is a business,'” he said.

“They gotta do what they gotta do to make their money,” Bonifield added. “And so I love the news business, but I am very cynical about it. At the same time, so are most of my colleagues.”

Bonifield said that CNN would have turned off its liberal viewers if the network strongly scrutinized former President Barack Obama, but Trump is “good for business.”

In Part Two of the current series of O’Keefe videos Van Jones the professional leftist and former Obama Administration official is stopped on the street and filmed.  Here is how the conversation between the Project Veritas journalist and Jones progressed:

PV Journalist: “Hey man, we met in Palm Springs a few years back.”

Van Jones: “Hey good to see you man, you good?”

PV Journalist: “What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?”

Van Jones: “The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”

PV Journalist: “Really?”

Van Jones: “Yeah.”

So what does all this fake news and political propaganda add up to?

We now have a Special Counselor investigating obstruction of justice when there was no underlying crime to begin with.  How can that fail to bring justice for the American people?  My prediction: They will convict someone of something.

We all know that there were people working day and night to corrupt our electoral process in 2016.  It was Clinton and the DNC Ratpack out to stack the deck against socialist Bernie Sanders.  And there was obstruction of justice too in the deleting of email evidence.

However the truth doesn’t fit the playbook of the left.  They’re determined to reverse the results of the 2016 election because they didn’t win.

The presstitutes tell us that O’Keefe is not to be believed.  That he is disreputable and underhanded.  A tactic right out of their guru Saul Alinsky, attack the messenger.  They can’t deny what they’ve said because we can see and hear them as they speak.  So just like the hacked emails they want us to look at how the information was gathered so we won’t realize the information exposes them for what they are, the media megaphone for the Democrat Party, the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel.

Did Illegals Voting Give Hillary the Edge? June 28, 2017

The AntiFa Resist 45 Movement loves to point out that Hillary won the popular vote.

However, if you get down into the weeds a bit the picture that materializes isn’t quite what we have been led to believe by the Democrat Party, their bully-boy street thugs, or their media megaphone.

As reported in Investor’s Business Daily if you take California out of the equation it is a completely different picture.

If you look at every other measure, Trump was the clear and decisive winner in this election.

Number of states won:
Trump: 30
Clinton: 20
_________________
Trump: +10

Number of electoral votes won:
Trump: 306
Clinton: 232
_________________
Trump: + 68

Ave. margin of victory in winning states:
Trump: 56%
Clinton: 53.5%
_________________
Trump: + 2.5 points

Popular vote total:
Trump: 62,958,211
Clinton: 65,818,318
_________________
Clinton: + 2.8 million

Popular vote total outside California:
Trump: 58,474,401
Clinton: 57,064,530
_________________
Trump: + 1.4 million

In other words, if you take California out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes. And if California voted like every other Democratic state — where Clinton averaged 53.5% wins — Clinton and Trump end up in a virtual popular vote tie.  Then again for several reasons California doesn’t vote like every other state.  Besides the fact that it has become a one party State it isn’t called Mexifornia for nothing.  It is the destination of choice for more illegals coming north for economic and social reasons than any other State.  Although we all know and have experienced the reality that in the aftermath of open borders illegals are now a sizable portion of the population anywhere you go in the U.S. of A.

Why does this have an impact on our understanding of the 2016 election?

Remember President Trump’s famous tweet:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump

In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

For this he was ridiculed by the ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel who presented it as nothing more than a “Twitter-born conspiracy theory.”  Investor’s Business Daily once again did the heavy lifting that the Lamestream Media refuses to do.  In an editorial they provide us facts and projections based on actual studies, surveys, and scholarly research as opposed to the baseless character assassination which the media megaphone tries to pass off as journalism.

Such as a study in 2014 in the online Electoral Studies Journal which made a quite similar claim: In the 2008 and 2010 elections, they said, as many as 2.8 million illegal noncitizen votes were cast, “enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes and congressional elections,” said the study, authored by Jesse T. Richman and Gushan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.  Which contained this bombshell: “Noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”

Concerning the possibility that as the President said illegals had an impact on the popular vote totals; a new study by Just Facts, a libertarian conservative think tank that used data from a large Harvard/You.Gov study that every two years samples tens of thousands of voters, including some who admit they are noncitizens and thus can’t vote legally.

The findings are eye-opening. In 2008, as many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the election. In 2012, as many as 3.6 million voted, the study said.

In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there were 21.0 million adult noncitizens in the U.S., up from 19.4 million in 2008. It is therefore highly likely that millions of noncitizens cast votes in 2016.

And it was no accident. Democrats had extensive get-out-the-vote campaigns in areas heavily populated by illegal aliens. As far back as 2008, Obama made sure that those who wanted to vote knew it was safe, announcing that election records would not be cross-checked with immigration databases.

And last year, the Obama White House supported a court injunction that kept Kansas, Alabama and Georgia from requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote. The message was sent, loud and clear: If you’re a noncitizen or here illegally, don’t be afraid. You’re free to vote. No one will stop you.

We don’t know the exact number of illegal votes. No one does. But the data that are available suggest that the number of illegal votes was substantial — probably in the millions, as Trump said — and likely had a significant impact on the election’s outcome.

Think about this for a moment.  To become an American Citizen a person has to pass a test on American History in English.  These people would have no need for a ballot printed in another language.  They can read English.  That is a requirement of citizenship.  In every State of our nation ballots are printed in Spanish.  Since citizens have no need of them, who are they printed for?  Isn’t the answer self-evident?

How can we avoid this type of fraud in the future?

First of all we could have fewer illegals in our country.  Secondly we could require that people show proof of citizenship in order to register to vote.  Also we could allow States to purge voter rolls of the dead, cross reference voter rolls across State lines, and require a photo ID to vote.  Perhaps as the rule of law is re-instituted after the unconstitutional excesses of the Obamanation we will see such commonsense procedures instituted.

The truth will always eventually win out over the lie.  And just as we can rest assured that those who believe the greatest lie of all time will eventually bow their knee and proclaim, “Jesus is Lord,” so to we can rest assured that even in this fallen world the truth is always visible to those who seek it.

Did illegals voting in 2016 give Hillary the edge in the popular vote?

Sure they did.

IMPEACH TRUMP!!!! June 14, 2017

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy.

That is the screech we’re about to hear emanating from the denizens of the swamp.  It is beginning to percolate already.  Though predicted in this column by this author before the inauguration it still has a jarring impact on the senses.

Back in the Dream Times when the Deep State was able to turn Watergate into a Silent Coup the precedent was set.  If someone tries to overturn the moneychanger’s tables they must be destroyed.  If it’s a president, even one elected for the sole purpose of adding some reality to the mirage of a dysfunctional democracy portrayed by our functioning oligarchy, they must be hounded out of office, disgraced, and discredited.

That’s the play book.  The perpetually re-elected hacks aided and abetted by the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel and their paleo partners in print have latched on to their intended weapon, “The Russians are coming!  The Russians are coming!”

No matter that the initial facts of the story are ludicrous: the fictional Golden Shower Dossier and the Russian hack of the DNC, which was in fact an inside job.  It doesn’t matter that the very foundation of the Russian collusion theory is built on sand; we now have a Special Counselor.  We can’t call him a Special Prosecutor because there is no legal foundation to appoint a Special Prosecutor, so if we call him a Special Counselor that should fool all of us out here in fly-over country.

Prosecutors always believe whoever they are investigating is guilty and that their job is to find enough evidence to prove what they believe.  Innocent until you are proven guilty, right.  Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to have been involved in a criminal trial and lived to talk about it knows how that feels in reality.  It inspired some to look at the courthouse and say, “It may say justice on the outside but there isn’t any on the inside.”

Remember the Valerie Plame investigation?  Someone blew her cover as an undercover CIA operative.  Before the investigation even started they knew who did it.  Eventually after a few years and millions of dollars they never prosecuted anyone for the leak; instead they prosecuted Lewis “Scooter” Libby the Chief of Staff of Vice President Dick Chaney for inconsistencies in his testimony.

These are search and destroy missions.  They are looking to get at least one conviction to justify all of their expense and to puff up the reputations of the scalp hunters who run them.  This Special “Counselor” is one of the closest associates of James “The Leaker” Comey.  He is staffing his office with Obama and Hillary supporters and we’re supposed to believe his investigation of a non-crime that never happened will produce objective results that anyone anywhere would imagine are justice?

Witch hunts find witches.  That’s what they do.  Have you ever been on a snipe hunt?  Ever find any snipes?

If anyone was interested in finding real collusion to disrupt an American election they could look into the subject of the DNC emails leaked to WikiLeaks; the proven collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign, Donna Brazile, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  Did you ever notice that none of the principles ever denied what was in the leaked emails, they merely complained about who leaked what to who.  Why isn’t there a Special Counselor looking in to how these people stacked the cards against poor old Bernie Sanders?  He said all along the election was rigged and he was right after all.  Why no interest in this?  It doesn’t serve to keep the swamp damp that’s why.

Our elite masters, the perpetually re-elected, the Deeps State, and the Media Cartel are setting the stage.  They must drive Trump from office before he can actually drain the swamp.  They must drive him out disgraced and repudiated or else we poor blind masses might figure out that we don’t need technocrats to rule us.

I am for establishing a new political party.  I think it should be the Telephone Book Party. I think we could pick the first 535 names out of any phone book in the country and get a Congress at least as good as the best one that money can buy.  At least that way we might get some actual working people in there.

Until my new party figures out how to win a mandate we have to endure with what we have and these political savants are determined to undue the results of the last election.  None of their fellow swamp dweller won, so they have banded together and the twin headed bird of prey that is the government party is clearly on display.

They won’t let little things like votes, or facts, or what’s good for America get in their way.  No, they will soldier on and soon we will hear this predator’s screech “IMPEACH TRUMP!!!! IMPEACH TRUMP!!!!” echoing through the land.

Resist 45 and the Government in Exile June 7, 2017

Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the packed gun shows his extreme disjointed attacks on the Second Amendment inspired we’re confronted with the sorry spectacle of a former American President speaking against us on foreign soil.  I knew this guy reminded me of Jimmy Carter.  When you hate America it doesn’t matter what your job is or isn’t you’ll always find a venue that rejoices as you attack Old Glory.

After an all too brief (for us) vacation orchestrating the Resist 45 Movement from his lair in DC the Instigator-in-Chief couldn’t resist a chance to visit the scene of one of his most famous speeches, Berlin.  The fact that Europe’s leading exponent of unlimited immigration German Chancellor Merkel agreed to receive him as a fellow head of state must have made his narcissistic head swim.

Here he is trying to upstage President Trump’s well received visit to Saudi Arabia by attempting to push his shopworn platitudes down people’s throats instead of playing golf with Tiger Woods.   It seems no one told him Americans are tired of hearing the same old song no matter how loudly the supine Germans cheer as they’re overwhelmed by the migration flood.

“We can’t isolate ourselves,” the former president said from a platform at the Brandenburg Gate. “We can’t hide behind a wall.”  Of course everything should be taken in context.  What was the Ex-President (oh how I love the ‘Ex’ part of that) saying: “One way we can do a better job is to create more opportunities for people in their home countries,” Mr. Obama said. “If there are disruptions in these countries, if there is bad governance, if there is war, or if there is poverty in this new world we live in, we can’t isolate ourselves — we can’t hide behind a wall.”

And do you think that applies to everyone equally?  According to the Washington Times, “Like so many liberals and ‘progressives,’ the former president does not mean that what he says should be taken literally, or even seriously. Walls, after all, are relative. America can’t have one, but he can. The president lives in an enormous rented mansion behind a brick and stone wall built just for him, and which he has fitted out as the White House in exile, with a staff and lots of electronic communications gear, requiring the seizure of a quarter of a mile of a quiet residential street to be guarded by a Secret Service detail not much smaller than the platoon of heavily armed agents who kept him safe, sound and ready for action at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

He even had some advice on child care, “A child on the other side of the border is no less worthy of love and compassion than my own child. We can’t distinguish between in terms of their worth and inherent dignity, and that they’re deserving of shelter and love and education and opportunity.”

This from a man who Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, just revealed directed Customs and Border Protection to release 16 members of the remarkably brutal MS-13 gang, freed to look at will for opportunities to kill and plunder.  “[The federal authorities] apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed them into our communities,” the senator told his committee.  How does this help provide safety for American children when these gang members terrorize our schools and communities?

These globalists are more interested in advancing their agenda than in protecting America and its citizens.

According to one of their minions, a senior judge on the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, “Judges are humiliated and dehumanized whenever they must enforce the nation’s immigration laws.”  Judges are humiliated when they have to enforce laws?  What kind of tin hat wearing alternate reality is this puffed-up self-anointed Carter appointed king in a black robe coming from?  What set this ruler of men in a rage against the machine?

He was unable to block the orderly repatriation of an illegal immigrant who has two drunk driving convictions, plus a U.S. wife and three children.  The outraged jurist complained, “We are unable to prevent [Andres] Magana Ortiz’s removal, yet it is contrary to the values of this nation and its legal system.”  In his blast from on high he continued, “We are compelled to deny Mr. Magana Ortiz’s request for a stay of removal because we do not have the authority to grant it. We are not, however, compelled to find the government’s action in this case fair or just. … The government’s decision to remove Magana Ortiz diminishes not only our country but our courts, which are supposedly dedicated to the pursuit of justice. Magana Ortiz and his family are in truth not the only victims. Among the others are judges who, forced to participate in such inhumane acts, suffer a loss of dignity and humanity as well. I concur as a judge, but as a citizen I do not.”

This judge is a perfect representative of the Deep State, the permanent government.  They don’t care who is elected or what the people may want.  They have their agenda and they’re going to continue to try and shove it down our throat until we either accept it or choke.

A president in exile leading a resistance movement against the man elected to succeed him, a Deep State of bureaucrats dedicated to the disruption of the government they are sworn to serve.  What are we to do?

Why worry when we can pray?

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

American Spy-Master and Election Hacker Revealed May 31, 2017

For months we’ve heard endless reports concerning the supposed ties between the Trump campaign and the Darth Vader of the progressive’s nightmares, Putin’s Russia.  The thin gruel of this plot has swirled from the swamp in DC through the megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBC Cartel until one would think every day Americans out here in fly-over country were actually thinking about it.

Finally after months of exhaustive research the spy-master of the most extensive surveillance campaign aimed at Americans can be revealed.  The one man who used every avenue possible to invade the privacy of American citizens in History has had the mask of denial ripped away.  Besides Hillary and the DNC rigging the primaries to stop Bernie who actually tried to use illegally obtained information to influence the presidential election in 2016?

The Obama Administration routinely spied on Americans.  According to John Solomon and Sara Carter of CIRCA:

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.

More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.

The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later.

The normally supportive court censured administration officials, saying the failure to disclose the extent of the violations earlier amounted to an “institutional lack of candor” and that the improper searches constituted a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue,” according to a recently unsealed court document dated April 26, 2017.

The admitted violations undercut one of the primary defenses that the intelligence community and Obama officials have used in recent weeks to justify their snooping into incidental NSA intercepts about Americans.

According to Paul Sperry of the New York Post the Obama Admiration used its control of America’s vast intelligence gathering apparatus in an attempt to hack the election.  While the show trials in Congress continue to build a paint-by-numbers PR case about Russians acting in collusion with the Trump campaign those who really tried to subvert the electoral process are being protected by the same political hacks running the phony investigations.

As Sperry reveals and relates:

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.

The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.

We now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke.

The FISA court called it a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change prohibiting officials from searching Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

A number of those searches were made from the White House, and included private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were leaked to the media. The revelations earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.

We also learned this week that Obama intelligence officials really had no good reason attaching a summary of a dossier on Trump to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama just weeks before Trump took office.

Under congressional questioning Tuesday, Obama’s CIA chief John Brennan said the dossier did not “in any way” factor into the agency’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election. Why not? Because as Obama intel czar James Clapper earlier testified, “We could not corroborate the sourcing.”

But that didn’t stop Brennan in January from attaching its contents to the official report for the president. He also included the unverified allegations in the briefing he gave Hill Democrats.

In so doing, Brennan virtually guaranteed that it would be leaked, which it promptly was.

In short, Brennan politicized raw intelligence. In fact, he politicized the entire CIA.

Langley vets say Brennan was the most politicized director in the agency’s history. Former CIA field operations officer Gene Coyle said Brennan was “known as the greatest sycophant in the history of the CIA, and a supporter of Hillary Clinton before the election. I find it hard to put any real credence in anything that the man says.”

Coyle noted that Brennan broke with his predecessors who stayed out of elections. Several weeks before the vote, he made it very clear he was pulling for Hillary. His deputy Mike Morell even came out and publicly endorsed her in the New York Times, claiming Trump was an “unwitting agent” of Moscow.

Brennan isn’t just a Democrat. He’s a radical leftist who in 1980 — during the height of the Cold War — voted for a Communist Party candidate for president.

When Brennan rants about the dangers of strongman Vladimir Putin targeting our elections and subverting our democratic process, does he not catch at least a glimpse of his own reflection?

What he and the rest of the Obama gang did has inflicted more damage on the integrity of our electoral process than anything the Russians have done.

How does all this surveillance keep us safe?  In Great Britain where there is more government surveillance than in any other western state it didn’t help stop the recent Manchester bomber.  According to press reports, he was known to the British intelligence services, he had traveled and possibly trained in bomb-making in Libya and Syria, his family members warned the authorities that he was dangerous, and he even flew terrorist flags over his house. What more did he need to do to signal that he may be a problem?

Of course here in America our government’s watchers are going to do it better ……. of course they will… ;–)

My question is: As they are watching us who watches them besides secret courts that report only to the perpetually re-elected guardians of the dysfunctional democratic process in a well-functioning oligarchy?

Never mind the facts.  Don’t pay any attention to who did what.  Ignore an ex-president operating a deep state government in exile while orchestrating the Resist 45 Movement.

We Need More Special Counsels May 24, 2017

The original accusation, the underlying premise for the entire hissy fit  by the chronic sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome’s about Russian collusion was that the Russians hacked the DNC and gave the emails to Wikileaks.

Recently Internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich, an employee of the DNC to get internal emails to Wikileaks.

Now we have proof that this underlying premise was a lie all along.  We now know that the person who really did give the DNC emails to Wikileaks didn’t have to hack in, because he was an insider to begin with: Seth Rich.

We also know that Seth Rich was mysteriously killed in Washington DC on July 8, 2016, 27 and that the Metro Police are slow walking the investigation.  The police say it was a botched robbery.  The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch, and phone.

In August Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.  Julian Assange also suggested in August that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant.  Kim Dotcom tweeted out that he has evidence Seth Rich, the murdered DNC operative, is the Wikileaks source.  He’s ready to release the evidence to Congressional investigators.  It doesn’t seem as if anyone in Washington is interested since this shines a light on the lie that started it all.

There is so much about this that is interesting.  Such as, the fact that the DNC leaders, Hillary Clinton, and Podesta, never disputed what was said in the emails. They instead attacked how the information was leaked. The media of course misdirected as best they could to cover up the facts.  Look at who made the accusations not at the accusations themselves.

If there was any fraud in the last election cycle it was the DNC fat cats stacking the deck against Bernie Sanders in the primaries.

I continue to ask if the Russians hacked the election and Hillary won the popular vote whose side were they on.  Just ask yourself: who would the Russians rather have as president of the United States a corrupt politician that everyone in the world knows can be bribed or a billionaire who says, “Drill Baby drill” when their economy is based on oil?

Now we have a Special Counsel to investigate a non-crime that probably makes sense inside the beltway and through the looking glass.

Why not have a Special Counsel to investigate Bill Clinton’s visit with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Arizona.  How about one to investigate all the people illegally leaking confidential material in an attempt to thwart the Trump agenda?  What about one to investigate how many people were illegally unmasked by Susan Rice and the rest of the Obama hit machine?

If we’re going to empanel Special Counsels to investigate rumors why stop until we’ve investigated them all?

Where are the over 30,000 emails deleted by Hillary Clinton?

If the massive donations to the Clinton Foundations weren’t thinly veiled bribes why did they dry up as soon as Hillary lost the election?

Special Counsels like Special Prosecutors take on a life of their own.  Which is eventually close to the half-life of a radioactive material, it lives on and on and on.  They need convictions to justify the bloated staffs and budgets that they acquire in years of so-called investigations.

Look at the case of who leaked the name of Valerie Plame.  The whole thing started with an article on July 14, 2003, by Robert Novak, journalist for The Washington Post.  This article named Plame as a CIA operative effectively ending her career.  Before the Special Prosecutor was even named people in the government knew that the source of the leak was Richard Armitage.  However he was an insider, a member of the establishment, so he couldn’t end up as the fall guy.

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald pushed and prodded until he was able to catch someone in a discrepancy between multiple interviews over several years.  Then he prosecuted Scooter Libby for that discrepancy and got a conviction.  It was not for revealing Plame’s name but for impeding the investigation into something that was already known before the investigation began.

Back in 1980 when Ronald Reagan won shocking the Democrat establishment they demanded an investigation of his Presidential campaign saying they made a deal with Iran to delay the release of American hostages until after the election.  How else could this has been actor beat a sitting president as successful as Jimmy Carter? That’s when Tom Foley the Democrat leader of the House said, “We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of the allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts.”  As long as we are going to continue to follow the Democrat’s criteria for investigations let’s go for the Holy Grail.

Let’s investigate the report that Obama’s Kenyan (paternal) grandmother, as well as his half-brother and half-sister testified that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as the president claims.  And there is reported testimony from a Mombasa science teacher and the Mombasa Registrar of births that Obama’s birth certificate from Mombasa is genuine.  This report shows a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate that Lucas Smith obtained through the help of a Kenyan Colonel who got it recently directly from the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.

So, if we’re going to have Special Counsels let’s have a bunch of them.  Let’s look into every rumor and accusation in Washington.  That should cause enough gridlock to hopefully protect us from all the help the perpetually re-elected continue to force upon us.  Maybe then we could live our lives in peace as they all scurry into the shadows like roaches when you turn on the light.

Drain the swamp!

They Serve at the Pleasure of the President May 17, 2017

How does impeachment of a president work?  The House of Representatives acting as a super grand jury votes an indictment or impeachment.  The Senate acting as a jury decides whether or not the charges brought warrant conviction.  If the president is convicted by the Senate he is removed from office.  If two thirds of the Senate fails to vote to convict the charges are dropped.  In that case the president was still impeached but not convicted.

In 1868 the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson.  This was the first time any president was impeached.  Contrary to popular belief President Nixon was never impeached.  He resigned while the Watergate debacle was still under investigation.  President Clinton was impeached but like Johnson he was not convicted by the Senate so he remained in office until the end of his term.

Why is this history lesson appropriate for May 17, 2017?  Because I believe President Trump is going to be impeached.

Why was Andrew Johnson impeached?  Although there were eleven articles of impeachment the main reason and primary cause was that he fired Edwin M. Stanton from the office of Secretary of the Department of War.  Congress had passed a law: the Tenure of Office Act.  This became law in 1867, over the veto of President Andrew Johnson. It denied the president the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The act was significantly amended on April 5, 1869. Congress repealed the act in its entirety in 1887. In 1926, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional even though it had been repealed almost forty years before.

All appointees of the executive office serve at the pleasure of the president.  He hires them, and even though the major ones must be confirmed by the Senate, he can fire them.

Andrew Johnson missed being convicted by the Senate by one vote.

Why was Bill Clinton impeached?  In this case there were only two articles of impeachment: lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice.  President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment. Needing a two-thirds majority to convict the prosecution failed to achieve even a majority. On the first charge of perjury, 45 Democrats and 10 Republicans voted “not guilty,” and on the second charge of obstruction of justice the Senate was split 50-50.  However, others who were not as politically attuned were not so lenient.

In April 1999, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright found Clinton in contempt of court for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones sexual harassment trial and fined him more than $90,000.  Once he lost his presidential immunity he was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court.  Additionally he was fined $25,000 for his testimony in the Lewinsky incident.

Now the impeachment drums are beating again.  Democrats determined since November 8th to declare the Trump victory illicit by any means necessary are planning a coup.  The RESIST! Movement with its Antifa bully boys dressed in black hiding behind masks has no legs.  The American people will tire of their over-the-top antics and eventually they will spawn their own backlash in a call for law and order.

However, the political hacks, the perpetually re-elected in Congress are a horse of different color.  They’re biding their time waiting for enough blood to stain the water.  They’re waiting for their stenographers in the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBC Cartel to give them enough political cover.  Then they’ll pounce.

Andrew Johnson was a Democrat impeached by a Republican Congress after the Civil War when the Democrat Party was completely discredited. The Republicans had a super majority and still they couldn’t convict.

In Bill Clinton’s case Republicans voted with Democrats not to convict even though some on both sides of the aisle gave speeches saying they knew he was guilty and repudiating his actions.

In the case of President Trump his political enemies have been field testing charges since day one.  They say Russians hacked the election, and even though Hillary won the popular vote these hypothetical Russians were trying to elect Trump.  They say President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election.  Even though months of hearings and armies of investigative reporters have been chasing this mirage there is still no evidence.

Now he fired the Director of the FBI, and he supposedly gave classified information to the Russians.  Everyone admits he has every right to fire any of the political appointees in the executive branch, and President Putin is offering to give the official transcripts of the meeting between Mr. Trump and the Russian ambassador which prove no classified information was shared.  However innocence may not be enough to avoid impeachment just as it might not be enough to avoid conviction.

Why?  Because the Ryan Rhinos control the house and the McCain/McConnell Never Trumpers control the Senate.

Donald Trump is the one thing none of the elites of the Washington Swamp can abide: a non-politician who beat them all at their own game.  They cannot afford to let anyone see behind the curtain and find out how the sausage is made.  They are dedicated to the proposition that government is too complicated for an average Joe to understand.  While Mr. Trump is far from an average Joe he is not one of them.  He didn’t go to the right schools, he didn’t pay his dues on the hustings, and he shines the light on the fact that they aren’t as special as they want us to think they are.

As I have said many times, I think the first 535 names out of any phone book would yield a Congress at least as good as what we have.  What we have now is the best Congress money can buy.  Under the Telephone Book Party we would at least have a few regular people in there.

Watch the news.  Try to discern the fake from the real.  Tempests in teapots and phony scandals will continue to ruffle the waters until the Government Party is ready to overthrow the Country Party.  I believe impeachment will come.  What will be the reaction of those riding the Trump train?

Will it be despair and withdrawal or rage and confrontation?

Over the years I have offered one piece of advice repeatedly.  Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.
