Trump Triumph Tour Takes America By Storm December 2, 2016

The Donald showed with his surprise (to some / I started predicting it in January) upset election that he is the consummate political strategist in America today. In addition, he has shown with the unprecedented work to save jobs before he is even inaugurated that he will deliver on his promises to Make America Great Again.

His speech in Ohio last night was a real barn burner.  It set the crowd on fire and inspired millions across the fruited planes.  I can’t imagine what he will give as an inaugural speech that could top that.  I am sure multiple millions of us will tune in to find out.  I would also suggest tuning in to the rest of his Triumph Tour speeches.  Last night he had a surprise announcement that he couldn’t make but he told us all in advance.  I’d share it here but it is a secret….;–)

With the Impresario himself to orchestrate and with Kellyanne Conway and the team to advise I firmly believe we are on track to Make America Great Again.

However, as one lone voice hunkered in the bunker out here on the prairie I would like to add my wish list to the long dreamed of, long fought for, and much anticipated restoration administration:

Counter the VAT taxes the rest of the world uses to put tariffs by another name on us and to subsidize their exports with a VAT tax of our own on all imports.

Quit the WTO, the IMF, and the UN.

Make America the most business friendly place on earth with lower corporate taxes, reduced taxes on repatriated money, cut the noose of regulations that strangles our productivity.

Repeal and replace that job killing destroyer of the American healthcare system; Obamacare.

Re-negotiate or leave NAFTA and every other one-way trade deal the globalists have devised to make America just one among many.

In other words Mr. Trump do what you said you would do.  You laid out a plan to make America Great Again and enough of us bought into it to elect you to be our president.  Now deliver on those promises.  Fulfill that vision and watch as the snowflake demonstrators turn into supporters once they learn that these policies will bring jobs, prosperity and the satisfaction of earning your own way instead of riding on the backs of others.  If you do this and you will not only Make America Great Again you will go down in History as one of America’s greatest presidents.  As the Historian of the Future I can guarantee that with a promise of my own.

Why the Progressives Want a Recount They Know They Will Lose November 30, 2016

The recount in Wisconsin and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of those states.  Even though the party of Mayor Daley, Boss Tweed, and their big city machines are famous for winning recounts by finding bags of votes in candy store basements no recount has ever changed thousands of votes let alone tens of thousands.  I do not believe changing the outcome is the purpose.  It is instead changing the perception of it.

I predict that they will demand the recounts are done by hand.  This would make them take so long these three pivotal States would not certify their results by the last day possible for directing their Electors how to vote.  If all three states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232.  No one hits 270.

Then, according to the Constitution, the election would go to Congress.   The House votes with one vote per State.  The Republican House would then elect Donald Trump as the 45th president.  The Republican Senate would elect Pence Vice President.

This has happened before.  In 1824, though Andrew Jackson had more popular votes and more electoral votes John Quincy Adams won in the House.  President Adams made a deal with the Speaker of the House Henry Clay who Adams then named as his Secretary of State, which at the time was considered the stepping stone to the presidency.  This was immediately termed the Corrupt Bargain by supporters of Jackson.  The antagonistic presidential race of 1828 began practically before Adams took office.  To the Jacksonians the Adams-Clay alliance symbolized a corrupt system where elite insiders pursued their own interests without heeding the will of the people.

This is Hillary and the Progressives strategy to place the mantel of corrupt elite insiders on the Republicans now that they see the nation is incensed against the circle of Progressive power brokers who led us from the pinnacle of prosperity to the brink of bankruptcy.  This is akin to how the Democrats have successfully placed the mantel of racist on the party of Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.  What a masterful stroke of political maneuvering that convinced the descendants of slaves that their natural allies are the descendants of Jim Crow.

If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as the result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it?  The answer is to make Trump seem completely illegitimate. They and their obedient shills in the media will tell us every day and at every opportunity that Trump did not win the popular vote saying he lost by over 2.1 million ignoring the fact that millions of illegals voted.  He did not win the Electoral College since in this scenario he would not have attained 270.  They will say just as they did about Bush the Younger that he was not elected he was selected by members of his own party in Congress.

However, there is one wrinkle in this strategy.  If a state never gets to name electors, the number needed to win does not remain the 270 needed if every state names every elector.  In that case it would once again be a majority of those named.  Even with 260-232, Trump would still win.  Then again the thugs on the left are sending death threats to electors already named trying to frighten some of them into becoming faithless electors who do not vote as instructed by their States.  I don’t foresee this happening.  The number of faithless electors in American History doesn’t make a handful.

So if after all these devious machinations Trump still wins without the election being thrown into Congress this would only be used by the Sandernistas and the Clintonites to cry rigged system.  They would keep their bully boys from Black Lives Matter and Move On in the streets for years while they hope and pray that Trump’s policies don’t make America great again which could solidify his hold over the working men and women throughout the nation.

No matter how this evil strategy plays out, whether the election is thrown into Congress or if Trump wins with a majority of a short electoral count, we will have four years of the Democrats calling this another Corrupt Bargain.  They will try to disrupt the inauguration.  They will have protestors outside the White House from day one.  They will have demonstrations everywhere President Trump goes.  They may even try to incite mass marches and violence in the rotted hulks of our once magnificent cities they control like medieval fiefdoms.  Using their big megaphone in the media they will use print, broadcast, movies, and songs to agitate their followers for the 2020 rematch between the Donald and perhaps Senator Elizabeth Warren or whoever they can scrape up to be the new face for their shopworn collectivist movement.

In other words they know the recount won’t change anything but they hope it will be enough to energize their low information base for a restoration of corporate socialism in four more years.

Trump Triumph Now Do What You Said You Would Do November 14, 2016

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

I was a house painter for many years.  In a profession famous for drunks who show up late, finish late, and inflate prices in between I found that if I did what I said I was going to do when I said I was going to do it for the price agreed upon I never ran out of work.  As a matter of fact I was always the highest priced and most sought after painter in every market I ever entered with a six month waiting list and satisfied customers.

I give the same advice to President-Elect Donald Trump that I gave myself, do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it and for the price agreed upon.

Don’t take a bite out of the poison apple that has betrayed every wave election since 2010.  Don’t twist yourself into a pretzel reaching across the aisle to the very Progressives you vowed to repudiate and who your followers voted to retire.

The Democrats are masters at snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.  Look at 2010, the great Tea Party wave election.  President Obama comes out the next day and says we got shellacked and then proceeds to act as if he had won and the Republican leadership fell into line re-authorizing the Patriot Act, passing the continuing resolutions and generally acting like a water boy for the Progressive first string.  In 2012 the Republican nominee won the first debate and then virtually conceded the next two agreeing with almost everything his opponent said.  Then he disappeared for the last two weeks of the campaign.  In 2014 another wave gave the Republicans the Senate to go along with the House and what have they done?

Mr. Trump don’t let the Pollyannas lead you down the primrose path.  Stand strong.  To paraphrase Winston Churchill: your victory is not the end.  It is not even the beginning of the end.  It is but the end of the beginning.  Now is the time that tests men’s souls.  Now is the time to be resolute in the face of the Progressives of Left and Right, their propaganda arm in the media, and their bully-boys in the streets.  These are the very people who have been trying to destroy you for eighteen months and trying to subvert and transform our nation for a century.  Now is not the time to try and compromise our way to unity with everything the movement you lead has been trying to push off the stage.

Rush Limbaugh uses the example of the Second World War in the Pacific.  We did not compromise our way to unity with Japan.  We demanded unconditional surrender.  They offered to negotiate and we continued to demand unconditional surrender.  It was not until they laid down every weapon and surrendered unconditionally that we welcomed them back into the family of nations.  Japan repudiated their fascist system, embraced democracy and capitalism, and we are still united with them to this day.

Pat Buchanan uses the examples of FDR and LBJ as presidents who used their landmark victories to launch America in new directions that have left indelible marks and shaped the course of our nation for generations.  He also used the example of Nixon in 1968 who failed to seize the initiative instead trying to compromise and appease the Progressives.  A decision he regretted the rest of his life.  Reagan is another example of a president who successfully used the momentum of victory to change the course of America.  And he only had one house of Congress.  You have two.

Step out boldly onto the stage of History and make a place for yourself as one of the greatest presidents of all time.

You are the consummate business man.  You took a loan of one million dollars and turned it into billions.  A feat which I am sure sounds much easier than it is.  You wrote the book on thinking big, deal making, getting rich, and never giving up.  You have surrounded yourself with the best and the brightest.  Work this transition like no one has since FDR, and when your hand comes off that Bible move decisively from the Obamanation to Trump Triumph.

Have a second Scalia picked, vetted and ready to nominate.  Announce an all-star cabinet with marching orders to clear the path for a return to limited government, personal freedom, and economic opportunity.  Untie the hands of our border patrol, give us a time table for building the wall, and give ICE the green light to start deporting those illegals who have been convicted of crimes.  Cut of all federal funds for sanctuary cities.  Having coordinated with Congressional leadership introduce bills to repeal and replace Obamacare, repeal Dodd-Frank, pass a new Glass–Steagall Act, and open the door for the re-patriation of American corporate profits held off shore.  Begin the work of untangling the nightmare the Neo-con Progressive axis has made of our foreign policy.  And make all of BHO’s unconstitutional executive orders null and void.

In other words, do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it and for the price agreed upon.  What was the price?  We give you the presidency and you give us our country back.  Now is not the time for a bunt.  This is the time to swing for the bleachers.

Don’t crack your back leaning across the aisle or you might end up with people looking back at all you have promised and trying to read your lips.  If that happens in four years the very movement that has catapulted you to the pinnacle of power may end up saying, “You’re fired.”

America Rising November 9, 2016

After the greatest upset in American History we have stepped from the precipice of the abyss and now stand upon the threshold of renewal.  America’s setting sun is rising again.

That hope we voted for was not the victim of a late term abortion.  It was not still born in the continuation of corrupt politics, failed policies, and deliberate defeat.  Instead we open our eyes on the possibility that after passing through the darkness of the Obamanation on January 20, 2017 we will once again experience the pride and satisfaction of America fulfilling its destiny as the home of the brave and the land of the free.

In the coming months as the Progressives prepare to slink out of the swamp to plot and plan their restoration we must be on guard for the flurry of executive orders, presidential actions, midnight appointments, and pardons that will inevitably spew out of the Oval Office.  Now that the Donald has cleared the path and shown the way let us hope that in these waning days of a lame duck administration the Republicans who control Congress will find the courage to stop President Obama from making the swamp that much more malignant.

As we celebrate the great victory let us stand ready to pitch in and help realizing that there will be sacrifices required to flush the bilge and right the ship of state.

Trump Vote is a Vote for Hope November 8, 2016

Marching out of Yorktown to surrender the British Army played the song “The World Turned Upside Down.”  As I drive to Meg Lo Mart to make my latest deposit of monopoly money in a Chinese savings account all I can do is mumble the final tag-line of the Wicked Witch of the West, “What a world. What a world.”

There is a massive unspoken problem in America today, floating like the iceberg in front of the Titanic waiting to sink the unsinkable ship.  Founded by revolutionaries crying “No taxation without representation!” the Republic these revolutionaries devised has devolved into a society where more than 40% of the people pay no Federal Income Tax and the number of people receiving government benefits is even higher.  What incentive would these non-paying receivers have to reign in an overbearing and intrusive government?  This unseen and unspoken problem is a cancer in the body politic.

Self-serving professional politicians buy votes by exempting non-productive people from personal financial responsibility while providing ever-expanding benefits at the expense of the productive.  This is not the right versus left, conservative versus liberal, Democrat versus Republican he-said-she-said endless debate that devours the chatocracy of cable’s wall-to-wall talking-heads.  This is not an academic exercise that pointy-headed Political Science and History majors with dueling pocket protectors debate for hours in their mother’s basement as they post their latest scoop on their samizdat blogs. If it is not any of these things what is it?  It is a dagger pointing directly at the heart of our civilization.

Western Civilization awoke from the slumber of the Dark Ages enlightened and empowered by a belief, based in the Judeo-Christian tradition that humanity has an innate right to be free and a natural right to excel.  Rights and freedoms are given by God not bestowed at the whim of some legend-in-his-own-mind Leader.  This civilization gathered steam in Europe exploding upon the world stage through an energetic period of exploration.

In America after a revolution fought by farmers and merchants against the greatest empire of the day the Founders, dared to declare “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” After centuries of government thugs standing on the windpipe of everyday people these self-sacrificing giants observed that in a civilized world government was not imposed by the strong upon the weak it was instead built upon a social contract between the governed and those entrusted with the privilege to govern when they said, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Today this bold and unique experiment in freedom is being devoured from within and challenged from without.  Those who believe the collective should reign over the individual, those who believe in the suffocating sameness of socialism over the rough-and-tumble of capitalism have worked for generations building a culture of dependency which has tempered the steel will of the pioneers into the sloppy demands of the couch-potato slacker waiting for someone to find their remote as they guzzle some refreshments and wait for the game as bread and circuses take the place of innovation and accomplishment.  Schools teaching 2+2 might = 5, trophies for everyone, politically correct new-speak and affirmative action promotions have sapped the vitality from the citizens of our Republic.  Politicians and their fellow-travelers use a system of cronies and sweet-heart deals to reward each other for siphoning trillions from the public treasury promising the dumbed-down descendants of revolutionaries that they just might win the lotto before they have to declare bankruptcy so they might as well re-elect the same old grafters once again.

There comes a time when those who are raising the sails and paddling the boat have to admit to themselves the ballast down in steerage weighs more than the cargo.  There comes a time when even the most non-confrontational and loyal among us begin to ask, “Who is John Galt” as Atlas tires of his thankless job and shrugs the burden of dead-weight into the dustbin of history.  As the perpetually-reelected and the propaganda spewing Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media trumpet the inevitability of government rationed health-care, cap-n-trade industrial suicide, comprehensive import-a-voter immigration reform and the surrender of sovereignty through treaties supposedly designed to deliver so-called free trade and deal with  mythical global warming there shines a light in a bell tower, one if by land and two if by sea.

Voting for Hillary is voting for the final nail in our coffin.  Four more years of open borders, give-away trade deals, and unilateral disarmament and the United States we have known and loved will be merely a memory as Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America will have been realized and we become the United Socialist States of America.

A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for hope.  As a person who has been politically aware and involved since 1960 I can say without exaggeration that several of Mr. Trump’s speeches, specifically his Economic Speech, his America First Speech, and his Gettysburg Address were among the clearest and most inspirational I have ever heard.  They rank right up there with the epic speech of Ronald Reagan to the 1976 Republican Convention.  I have waited my whole life to hear a leader who wants to serve America first.  If his Contract with America is implemented it will create a pathway to make America great again.  Get out and vote.  Vote for Donald Trump.  Vote for hope.

Without hope you’re hopeless and I refuse to allow the unbelievable changes currently assaulting our economy and our political system to bring about my own personal Great Depression.  Those who believe in the Devil believe he comes to steal, kill and destroy.  I believe if he can’t steal your joy he can’t keep your stuff and weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.  Don’t despair pray.  Why worry when you can pray?  Don’t give up, give it up to God.  Let me ask you, “Do you have hope?”  I hope so.  Personally as for me and my house we will trust the Lord for our hope is in Christ.

Trump Triumph to Dream the Impossible Dream November 2, 2016

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

According to Albert Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

If We the People want to restore the Republic we will have to rise above the shop worn politics presented by the two-headed party of power and as described by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.

We cannot be diverted into the channels of thought and discussion that inevitably lead to the same conclusions.  We debate where and when we should intervene in overseas adventures not if we should intervene.  We debate how much money the Fed should create not if the Fed should create money or if there should be a central bank at all.  We debate how big the deficit should be instead of should we run deficits at all.  As long as we allow the advocates of big government to dictate the debate we lose before the first words are spoken because the answers are prescribed by the questions.

In an article as short as this I cannot cover all the many schemes, swindles, and boondoggles that have led us to the precipice.  Let me examine one that is rarely thought about, barely understood, and never mentioned in political campaigns.

Fractional Reserve Banking is the prescription that causes the disease.  The attempt to create prosperity by inflating bubbles leads inevitably to the bursting of bubbles.  This bubble blowing is a result of the so-called “multiplier effect.  According to Investopedia:

The multiplier effect is the expansion of a country’s money supply that results from banks being able to lend. The size of the multiplier effect depends on the percentage of deposits that banks are required to hold as reserves. In other words, it is the money used to create more money and is calculated by dividing total bank deposits by the reserve requirement.

BREAKING DOWN ‘Multiplier Effect’

To calculate the effect of the multiplier effect on the money supply, start with the amount banks initially take in through deposits, and divide this by the reserve ratio. If, for example, the reserve requirement is 20%, for every $100 a customer deposits into a bank, $20 must be kept in reserve. However, the remaining $80 can be loaned out to other bank customers. This $80 is then deposited by these customers into another bank, which in turn must also keep 20%, or $16, in reserve but can lend out the remaining $64.

This cycle continues as more people deposit money and more banks continue lending it until finally the $100 initially deposited creates a total of $500 ($100/0.2) in deposits. This creation of deposits is the multiplier effect.

Required Reserves

The reserve requirement is set by the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System, and it varies based on the total amount of liabilities held by a particular depository institution. For example, as of 2016, institutions with more than $110.2 million in deposits are required to hold 10% of their total liabilities in reserve.

Ten percent!  That is all the banks are required to keep out of every dollar deposited.  No wonder there are so many balls in the air at once, and no wonder they periodically come crashing down.  For every one hundred dollars deposited the banks make another 609 dollars appear as if by magic.  How could this ever go wrong?  When the music stops there never seems to be a chair for everyone, and as the dominos tumble they always take down the next in line.

Enter the government which legalized Fractional Reserve Banking to begin with to solve the problems caused by Fractional Reserve Banking.  After George Bush II declared, “I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system” and went on to bail out the main perpetrators of the government mandated sub-prime loans, for some reason the 99% became upset.

All the little people who pay the bills burned out on bail outs.  It was time for the next dog and pony show, so the government steps in to fix the situation they caused by trying to fix the situation they caused passing the Dodd-Frank Bill.  In classic government cure the disease by amplifying the infection mode Dodd-Frank actually enshrines too big to fail and sets the stage for the next big bail out of the crony capitalists who are one of the three legs of the Washington fascist economy.  A classic case of doing what feels good instead of doing what is good.  Some may think that my use of the word fascist to describe the current American economy is hyperbole.  It is not.  A fascist economic system, also known as Corporatism, is a union of the government, crony capitalists, and big unions.  Sound familiar?

From a rigged economic system to a rigged political system our once proud Republic has devolved from a nation of the people by the people and for the people to a dysfunctional oligarchy masquerading as a functional democracy.

If you listen to the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their cable network step sisters we are poised to elect the most corrupt person to have ever run, the head of a crime family, and the wife of the defiler of the oval office.  No matter what the next scandal, no matter the prospect of a failed presidency racked by serial investigations these bought and paid for pundits act as if her victory is inevitable.

I don’t think so.  As I have predicted since January 31 I believe the Donald will win in the greatest landslide since Reagan in 1984.  After decades of Progressives who have sold us down the river and regaled us with lies such as “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” we finally have a man who inspires us with his dream of making America great again.

In a recent speech Mr. Trump said we should dream big.  He said that if we will unlock the potential of the American people no dream will be beyond our reach.  I have always been a dreamer and now like someone waking up from the fever dream of the Obamapocalypse I am joining with Donald Trump to dream the impossible dream: to make America great again.

To dream the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe

To bear with unbearable sorrow

To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong

To be better far than you are

To try when your arms are too weary

To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star

No matter how hopeless, no matter how far

To be willing to give when there’s no more to give

To be willing to die so that honor and justice may live

And I know if I’ll only be true to this glorious quest

That my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I’m laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this

That one man scorned and covered with scars

Still strove with his last ounce of courage

To reach the unreachable star

Let us join together on November 8th to elect Donald J. Trump as the next president of the United States.  Let us dream the impossible dream.  Let us stop doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.  Let us make that impossible dream possible once again.  Let us make America great again.

Crooked Hillary Revealed October 28, 2016

In the cesspool known as Washington DC filled with corruption the Clintons take it to new depths.  Operating with the functional immunity granted by the compromised Obama Justice Department and the FBI they blatantly skim millions as they take pay-to-play to levels that would have made Chicago’s Mayor Daley green with envy.

Here are three examples that could serve as representative of what we should expect if corruptions number one power couple and New York’s Sixth Crime Family once again occupy the White House.

The overlap between Hillary Clinton’s State Department, her family’s foundation, and a consulting firm run by members of her inner circle has reaped a windfall for all involved, steering tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Family and generating lucrative contracts for a consulting practice run by a close confidante

Newly released emails show that Hillary Clinton’s top State Department adviser, Huma Abedin, granted access to the then-Secretary of State during overseas diplomatic visits based upon Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) donor status.

In a 12-page memo sent by Clinton’s former aide Doug Band in 2011 to Bill Clinton, his daughter Chelsea, several board members of the Clinton Foundation, its lawyers and then special advisor John Podesta details how Band helped run what he called ‘Bill Clinton Inc.’

In the memo Band revealed that he and another aide helped secure $66million from ventures, including speaking fees, according to the memo.

He wrote that using his role as the president of his own consulting firm Teneo, Band worked to raise funds for the Foundation and Clinton personally.

Band also wrote that he helped obtain ‘in-kind services for the President and his family – for personal, travel, hospital, vacation and the like.’

‘Throughout the past almost 11 years since President Clinton left office, I have sought to leverage my activities, including my partner role at Teneo to support and raise funds for the Foundation,’ Band wrote.

‘This memorandum strives to set forth how I have endeavored to support the Clinton Foundation and President Clinton personally.’

Under a section called ‘For-Profit Activity of President Clinton (i.e. Bill Clinton, Inc)’ Brand said he and another aide, Justin Cooper brought Clinton all four of his advisory arrangements at the time.

These yielded more than $30million in personal income – with a further $66million to be paid out over the next nine years should he continue with them. … Band also said that Teneo was responsible for negotiating a number of speaking fees for Clinton, including $1.15million from Ericson and $900,000 from UBS.  The full article and all the sordid details is found in the Daily Mail.

For a more detailed look at the legacy Hillary drags around like Marley’s chains see the World Net Daily article Hillary’s 22 Biggest Scandals Ever.

For an in-depth look at what WikiLeaks has so far revealed see the article 21 Things We’ve Learned About Hillary Clinton from Wikileaks That the MSM Won’t Share…But YOU Can!.

The Donald may have some baggage but like an invading army Hillary travels with a baggage train.

The Wall Street Journal calls the Clintons Grifters-in-Chief saying the Clintons don’t draw lines between their ‘charity’ and personal enrichment.

Don’t be fooled by the wall-to-wall propaganda vomited out by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.  To these committed Progressive pseudo-journalists it isn’t what the leaks reveal it is all about how they were revealed.  See the article Don’t Look at Hillary the Russians Did It.  The WikiLeaks revelations continue to pour out and the Clinton campaign crew never dispute what is revealed they instead shoot the messenger.

Returning the two heads of the Clinton Crime Family to the White House would be like paying criminals to return to the scene of the crime, guaranteeing a pardon for all future crimes and then looking the other way.

Vote Trump and drain the swamp.

Trump or Clinton Life or Death October 26, 2016

There will be no end to History until there is an end to events.  Current events are the History of the future.  However History can be lost.  People can ignore their past, live only in the now, and leave their future to chance.  History provides the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others as well as the chance to build upon what others have learned.  To ignore these two paths to success gives life to the notion that failure to plan is planning to fail.

All Americans should cherish their History.  We left a known and secure world for a new one.  We turned an untamed land into one bustling with enterprise and development.  We stood against the world’s greatest superpower to assert that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights and that among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  We made it through a sectarian war and clawed our way from the outskirts of an Atlantic culture to the pinnacle of global dominance.  Our industry, our education, our health care system, our culture, and our military became the epitome of western civilization and the envy of the entire world.

There was a time in America when every child was infused with the story of America rising from nothing to the apex of power, a time when everyone was taught in Civics class about the declaration of Independence, the  Constitution, and the melting pot that made us the embodiment of  E pluribus unum: out of many, one.

Today after the Progressives and that destroyer of education the Department of Education has worked for generations to dumb us down from individuals using personal freedom to succeed to induhviduals using a pack mentality to follow the herd to a ride in the entitlement hammock.  Now we glory in being a smelting pot where the cheerleaders of fragmentation parrot “Diversity is our strength” as we unravel into warring factions.  Hyphenated Americans of every color, creed, and ethnicity now jockey for their place in the que as government goodies are doled out to preferred groups.

Where we are today:

A culture of death swallows a culture of life. A terminally ill California woman determined to be with her four young children for as long as she could was reportedly denied an expensive chemotherapy treatment — but won approval for a lethal drug to legally end her life.  We even have a presidential candidate who says we have to ban guns to save the children yet we need to keep partial birth abortions legal to kill the babies, and no one in the media has the insight or the integrity to call her on it.

Not only is New York’s Sixth Crime Family guilty of pay to play they are also guilty of bribe to walk: The charge – A Hillary Clinton ally donated almost $500,000 to the campaign of the wife of an FBI official who helped oversee the agency’s probe of Clinton’s email server.  The particulars – Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, donated almost $500,000 to the campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe.  A serial liar, unindicted co-conspirator with a notoriously philandering husband is going to win the votes of millions of low information voters, government dependents, and dead people.

Early voting has started and not only is the expected fraud showing up immediately the imported voters are turning out en mass for open borders and an end to America as America:  Residents of at least two cities in Texas are complaining that they voted for Donald Trump only to see the voting machine switch their ballot to Hillary Clinton.  And illegal immigrants have been caught on tape stuffing ballot boxes during early voting.

Corruption is accepted as the norm in today’s America, with a totally corrupt Hillary Clinton presented as a viable presidential candidate.  Bill Clinton’s type of lewd behavior once considered unacceptable is swept under the rug as our culture sinks to its lowest common denominator.  Life is being swallowed by death and a shining city on the hill is being remade into a squalid third world hell hole that will use our grandchildren as beasts of burden to support the human debris of failed states.

The America of “Give us liberty or give us death” has morphed into “Give me bread and circuses.”  Throw a six pack over the fence and beam a game to the flat screen and the descendants of the pioneers are ready to roll over and cash their next government check.

This may be the trail chosen for us by the blind guides of the left.  This may be the end of western civilization and the death of life conjured up by the globalist puppet masters who pull the strings in this final act of the Progressive Putsch; however, I choose another way.

I choose to vote for Donald Trump.  I choose to vote for America first.

Two things ring in my mind as I contemplate this election:

I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

And “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Trump’s Gettysburg Address Needs Secret Sauce to Succeed October 24, 2016

If this election has revealed one thing it is the existence of the Government-Media-Crony Capitalist-Dependent Class-Imported Voter Complex that sees this as their final act in the seizure of total power.  Four more years continuing down the road of an imperial president ruling by decree, open borders and international capitulation, and America’s fate as a declining power will be sealed.  This is not a debate or power struggle between Internationalists and Isolationists.

This is a life or death battle between Globalists and Nationalists.  They want us to be one vote among many, one province of a world government.  We want the United States to remain an independent country.  They want to submerge our institutions in a Soviet style rule from the center socialist dystopia.  We want the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave to become again a federal republic with a limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom for all.

The twin headed bird of prey that is the government party of the Republicrats will have succeeded in perverting the greatest experiment in human freedom in the History of the World into one more centrally-planned kleptocracy where those with the levers of power reward those who support them by pilfering the wealth produced by those who innovate and strive.

“Who is John Galt” will ring out from the throats of millions who no longer see any reason to work to feed those who oppress them as America will embrace the old Soviet saying, “They pretend to pay us so we pretend to work.”

Ultimately the Deplorables will see that their nation has been stolen and delivered to the millions of dumbed down economic parasites our government has indoctrinated at home and the invading hordes from the third world.

The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media colludes openly to drag a political hack who would be 20 points down if it weren’t for their propaganda megaphone across the finish line before she collapses under the weight of her own corruption.

Mark Twain said, “If you don’t read the papers you’re uninformed. If you do read them, you’re misinformed.”

So turn off the ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBC New York Times Wall Street Journal LA Times cabal and think for yourself!

Winston Churchill said, “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Now is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of their country.  Hillary will seal the doom of an independent, prosperous America.  Look at The Donald’s contract with America as outlined in his Gettysburg Speech and you will see the outline of a plan to make America great again.  We can do it!  All we have to do is do it.  So just do it.  Vote Trump and you vote to give us one more chance.

And here is the secret sauce the only thing that can make all this work. “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

It’s Not Paranoia if They’re Really Out to Get You October 21, 2016

Voter fraud?  What voter fraud?

The 2012 re-election of our Glorious Leader Barack Husain Obama sent shock waves through the patriotic and conservative communities.  Everyone from Libertarians to fervently Pro-Life activists from Log Cabin Conservatives to those advocating traditional values have accepted the narrative force-fed to a waiting public by the media.  Day after day on the one network all conservatives watch many have swallowed the intellectual gruel ladled out by the select group of anointed talking heads whose opinions Fox must believe are the only ones we ever want to hear.  From the Liberal Juan to the Neo-Con Charles from the Libertarian John to the funny Dennis we have been told that demographics defeated us.

Yes there has been a massive demographic shift in the make-up of our country since the suicidal adoption of the Kennedy Immigration Act in 1965.  Pat Buchannan warned us for years that this was a demographic time bomb implanted by the Progressives in the very heart of America.  Yes the massive stealth amnesty which is soon to turn tens of millions of illegal immigrants into voters will effectively spell the end of any possibility for a supporter of limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom winning the White House.

Our rule-by-decree president has used executive orders to incorporate a new voting majority. He has the perpetually re-elected leaders of the Republicrats joining in his traitorous assault on America.  Now he is the first sitting president in living memory to actively campaign for his successor, Hillary “The Nail in our Coffin” Clinton.  Mr. Buchannan warned us, crying out like a prophet in the wilderness, it is impossible to incorporate millions of people from the third world who have never known anything except authoritarian rule and expect them to become born-again supporters of Enlightenment political theory.  All they have ever known was oppressive central-planning and all powerful leaders wielding vast bureaucracies, in other words ideal Democrat voters.  And if that isn’t enough the Governor of Virginia has the “Calling all Felons” sign out at the ballot box to make sure they elect one of their own.

This is all true.  This last gear is about to be installed in the Democrat re-election machine but this is not what happened in the pivotal election of 2012   There is another story that no one on ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC or Fox is telling us.  Instead they parrot the conventional wisdom of the Democrat controlled media.  We hear the same thing no matter who we tune in; unless the Republican party embraces amnesty and softens its stance on certain social issues they will never have a chance to win the white House again.  The diagnosis may be correct but the prescription will kill the façade that the Republican Party supports constitutionally limited government.

The real story behind the defeat of the media chosen Romney wasn’t that this Northeast big government father of Romneycare couldn’t beat the worst president in American History riding the worst economy since FDR.  It isn’t even the fact that millions of self-identified Republicans stayed home or that millions of liberty loving constitutionalists followed their conscious and voted third party.  Even with these handicaps I believe Mr. Romney would have defeated Mr. Obama except for the one factor no one seems willing to voice: massive and systemic voter fraud.

The Democrats in general and their professional civil rights hucksters in particular have spent endless hours howling about voter suppression finally pointing to the long lines of millions of new voters as proof that their vote had been suppressed.  That’s like saying, “Nobody goes there anymore because it’s too crowded.”

In this column over the last seven and a half years I have pointed out the Progressive ways of Chicago-on-the-Potomac.  I have pointed out that Mr. Obama was the representative of the Chicago Outfit and that everything he was doing had already been field tested for generations in the City that Works for the Elites and the Outfit.  I have also pointed out that the Chicago political machine doesn’t lose elections.  With the Obama campaign headquartered in the Windy City and run by professional Chicago operatives, to this writer it was a forgone conclusion: they would steal the vote.

The massive political machines the Democrats have constructed in major cities act as vote faucets that swing their states predictably into the blue column.  The irregularities with voting machines, the hundreds of precincts that went 99 to 100 % for Obama, and the legions of voters who couldn’t even speak let alone read English all point to the arrival of third world elections to the greatest democracy ever known.

At a recent gathering I heard two progressives irately attacking the audacity of the Republicans for seeking voter ID laws.  They saw this as an attempt to stop poor and elderly voters, who all have IDs, from voting.  They also bemoaned the fact that the voter ID supporters claimed they wanted to stop voter fraud.  To this claim they wailed, “What voter fraud?  Where is it?  There is no voter fraud!”

Knowing that my earlier statements will elicit the same wail let me respond with some facts gleaned from the post-election observations as chronicled in the Worldnet Daily:

Chicago elections worker Steve Pickrum, an equipment manager for the elections system, told Worldnet Daily (WND) he was called when a voting machine malfunctioned. “On early voting when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and every time that I saw [a] voter voted for Romney a ‘voter save failure’ message came up on the screen,’” he reported. Then when he went on election day to vote himself, he picked Romney and experienced the same error message. He reported he never experienced the error message when the voter was choosing Barack Obama.

Another poll worker assigned at the University of Michigan reported to WND a list of irregularities including that the precinct captain told her at one point, “You go sit down, you are bothering me,” when she was trying to observe the proceedings. “I was only standing there and looking at voter documents,” she told WND. “It was clear that what bothered him was my very presence.” She said a short time later a young man arrived and identified himself as a Democrat poll challenger. “The first time he said anything was to object to my challenge of a voter. He tried to anger the voter by telling her ‘She does not believe you are who you say you are.’ He was trying to create a scene. It then happened again and I told him ‘You are not here to challenge me!’ His reply was a very loud ‘Yes I am! You are a Republican and you are here to prevent people from voting. You are holding up the line and creating obstructions,’” she reported. She told WND in fact no one waited more than about fifteen minutes to vote the entire day, and there were no obstructions.

And in Florida, the Sun Sentinel reported that election workers a week after the election said they found 963 unaccounted-for ballots – in a warehouse. “How can you lose them? This is terrible,” candidate Chickie Brandimarte told officials. Election supervisor Brenda Snipes, however, said it’s routine for various vote totals to be adjusted up until the Nov. 18 final certification.

A poll watcher told WND up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station in Pennsylvania reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected. The incident took place in the state where officials claimed Obama got a total of 19,605 votes in 59 voting divisions to zero for Mitt Romney and not far from the 100 precincts in Ohio where Obama got 99 percent of the vote, a feat not even achieved by third-world dictators. It was in Upper Macungie Township, near Allentown, Pa., where an auditor, Robert Ashcroft, was dispatched by Republicans to monitor the vote on Election Day. He said the software he observed would “change the selection back to default – to Obama.”

Fox News reported that voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas, and Ohio also said they had pushed a button on a touch-screen voting machine for Romney, but the machines recorded their vote for Obama.

The Columbus Dispatch estimated that more than twenty percent of registered Ohio voters aren’t eligible. “In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population,” the report said. And, it said, in 31 other counties, registrations are above 90 percent of the population, “a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts.”

Fox News also documented how Senate candidate Wendy Long, an attorney who was a clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recounted her voting experience. “A poll worker who was at the scanner studied my private ballot and proceeded to tell me that it was rejected because I did not ‘fill in every space.’ She then proceeded to indicate that I should mark the Democratic line all the way down.”

According to Philly.com, 59 voting divisions in Philadelphia produced a “head-spinning figure,” not one vote for Romney. “The unanimous support for Obama in these Philadelphia neighborhoods – clustered in almost exclusively black sections of West and North Philadelphia – fertilizes fears of fraud, despite little hard evidence,” the newspaper said.

The Washington Times reported that officials in Florida banned observers from seeing the absentee ballots being opened and “there was no way to know whether the absentee ballots that were produced were the same ones that were opened, or if all the ballots were produced.”

Human Events claimed Ohio voters who are native to Somalia were being given a slate card saying, “Vote Brown all the way down” – an apparent reference to the Democratic senator.

The Washington Times reported its suspicions of voter fraud in Pennsylvania, including that “in Philadelphia, the [New] Black Panthers are currently standing outside polling booths, intimidating voters just like they did in 2008.” It said, too, that seventy Republican polling inspectors were blocked from access.

A blog, Punditpress, reported “In Florida: Obama Got Over 99% in Broward County Precincts”

The same site reported: “What Luck! Obama Won Dozens of Cleveland Districts with 100% of the Vote”

There also was the report about “Good News: Obama Won County in Ohio with 108% Voter Registration”

And Punditpress also reported: “BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County”

To the Progressives who say there is no voter fraud who fight voter ID I want say, “This voter fraud.  Here it is?  There was massive and systemic voter fraud in 2012!”  To those who refuse to call a spade a spade, hiding their heads in the sand and pretending the 2012 election was the result of a demographic shift, the power of negative advertising, or anything else besides Chicago style politics as usual I want to ask, “Why are you so quiet about something that is so obvious?”  What’s to be gained by lending our silence to endorse the legitimacy of stolen elections?”

Turning from past practice to current events:

Donald has the nerve to tell the American people that the emperor has no clothes.  He has the Chutzpah to say he won’t commit to recognizing the corrupt result of a compromised system.  How dare he!   They say he is subverting democracy.  Just remember we are not a People’s Democratic Republic we are a federal republic that operates according to democratic principles.

The most glaring fact that the frenzied condemnation of Mr. Trump reveals is that the twin headed bird of prey that is the Government Party is losing legitimacy among the majority of citizens.  In the dim recesses of their autocratic dreams they recall the fact the all governments ultimately rest upon the consent of the governed.   This is why they are so frantic to import a new population so that combined with their traditional vote stealing they can cement a permanent majority.

You can turn a blind eye to overwhelming evidence.  You can swallow the Kool-Aide dispensed by the Progressive’s media megaphone.  However, if you are afraid to stand up and shout “The Emperor has no clothes!” because you don’t want to be called a conspiracy theorist remember it’s not paranoia if they’re really out to get you.
