Trump Makes His Move to Drain the Swamp March 13, 2017

During his historic campaign for the presidency Donald Trump promised repeatedly that if elected he would seek to drain the swamp.  By this his many supporters believed he meant get rid of the armies of apparatchik bureaucrats who think they own the government.  The Deep State or as they call themselves the Permanent Government composed of mainly Democrat/Progressive/Socialists who make up a red tape spewing horde protected by civil service laws and the SEIU who seek to regulate every aspect of our lives.

Now he is seeking to do just that.  This can be seen in the budget proposal Mr. Trump is delivering to Congress this week.  It is as radical as anything seen in Washington in our life time.  Other presidents have promised to shrink the size of government yet none has actually delivered since Calvin Coolidge.  Of course the Democrats and their Progressive fellow travelers on the other side of the aisle are already squealing.  Look for the media megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel to begin repeating into their broadcast echo chambers how many grandmothers will be pushed over cliffs, children left to starve, rivers polluted and poisons released into our homes if even one bureaucrat is laid off.  Oh the sky is falling!  How could we possibly survive without Uncle Sugar to pay people not to work and Uncle Sam the Man to tell us how to live?

Don’t be deceived by the purveyors of fake news and political spin.  The President isn’t seeking to pollute the world or starve the indigent.  He is instead seeking to reign in runaway bureaucrats who think they are the guardians of the universe.  His budget will bring about a radical contraction in the federal work force.  It is almost impossible to fire the entrenched these commissars who call themselves civil servants however you can eliminate jobs, programs and agencies thus culling the chaff.

No administration has even proposed such massive cuts since the end of WW II.  The groundbreaking budget that President Trump is set to unveil on Thursday offers a clear vision of how he plans to fulfill his promise to drain the swamp. It speaks volumes about his idea about what should be the size and role of government.  The president sees the budget process producing a new Washington.  This will not be an imperial capital.  Instead it would return to its role as a working center for a reasonable central government in a federal republic.

This would be a government prioritizing the military and homeland security.  It would be one that slashes other areas it has intruded into such as housing, foreign aid, environmental control, and public broadcasting.  This would be a government much that is smaller and much less involved in regulating the everyday life of Americans.  It would also be a government where the States have a much bigger role as is fitting in a federal republic.

According to Robert Reischauer, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, “These are not the kind of cuts that you can accommodate by tightening the belt one notch, by shaving a little bit off of a program, or by downsizing a few staff here or there. These are cuts that would require a wholesale triage of a vast array of federal activities.”

This is what we voted for!  This is keeping your promises.  If only Schumer, McCain and the rest of the Progressives of the twin headed bird of prey that is the government party will get out of the way and let We the People get what we voted for.

It might be educational to remember that the last person elected who vowed to drain the swamp or as he called it bring about a New Federalism was Richard M. Nixon and we all know how that worked out.  Or do we?

Look back and ignore the deep throated spiel of the court historians and read The Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin and expose yourself to the only place that tells the other side of that story.  Let’s pray this does not happen again and even though the gators, snakes, and weasels may not like it we finally get to drain the swamp.

Trump Protestors Professional Patsies March 10, 2017

From the snowflake college students who need a safe space to protect them from anyone who might be cruel enough to disagree with their progressive programming to the America last crowd at the DNC what we are witnessing is an organized effort to over throw the government of the United States one protest, I mean demonstration, I mean riot at a time.

In the New Speak of our Soros-funded Alinsky-trained pink shirted fascists diversity means everyone agrees with them.  Freedom of speech means no one says anything they disagree with.  And the Constitution says whatever they need it to say to do whatever they want.

How Orwellian can you get?

Reality slips down the memory hole and those who railed against Trump for saying he might not accept the results of the election reject the results of the election.

The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel pretends that all of this manufactured furry is spontaneous, the eruption of the grass roots.  It is more like the reflection of a Jumbo Tron on AstroTurf.  This isn’t the people speaking truth to power this is the power using people as ventriloquist dummies to mouth slogans.

How many times do we have to listen to the Cartel broadcast their talking points, the same script from all locations only to find that low and behold by the next morning these very talking points are now the personal opinion of the sheeple who make up their mob?  How many of our friends, relatives, and acquaintances profess loyalty to and cast voted for perpetually re-elected demagogues who support everything these people oppose and oppose everything they support? How many must we see to realize the dumbing down and indoctrination of our fellow citizens is working?

The newspaper nightly news late-night comedy show devotees follow their leaders and believe that the resistance to the Trump Presidency is organic.  They even join the flash mobs and carry the mass made signs.  I wonder how many realize that the planners and provocateurs who organize these protests have a training manual for protesting Trump?

Paul Sperry of the New York Post reveals:

Organizing for Action, a group founded by former President Barack Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations and building a border wall.

The tactics promoted in the training manual were used in the highly reported protests at the recent Republican Town Hall Meetings.  Of course it was never mentioned that the Democrats were not holding any town hall meetings so that their followers would be available to harass Republicans.

The article by Sperry continues its revelations:

The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers.”

“Express your concern [to the event’s hosts] they are giving a platform to pro-Trump authoritarianism, racism, and corruption,” it says.

The goal is to make Republicans, even from safe districts, second-guess their support for the Trump agenda, and to prime “the ground for the 2018 midterms when Democrats retake power.”

“Even the safest [Republican] will be deeply alarmed by signs of organized opposition,” the document states, “because these actions create the impression that they’re not connected to their district and not listening to their constituents.”

After the event, protesters are advised to feed video footage to local and national media.

“Unfavorable exchanges caught on video can be devastating” for Republican lawmakers, it says, when “shared through social media and picked up by local and national media.” After protesters gave MSNBC, CNN and the networks footage of their dust-up with Chaffetz, for example, the outlets ran them continuously, forcing Chaffetz to issue statements defending himself.

The manual also advises protesters to flood “Trump-friendly” lawmakers’ Hill offices with angry phone calls and emails demanding the resignation of top White House adviser Steve Bannon.

A script advises callers to complain: “I’m honestly scared that a known racist and anti-Semite will be working just feet from the Oval Office … It is everyone’s business if a man who promoted white supremacy is serving as an adviser to the president.”

Does any of this sound familiar?  Isn’t this exactly what happened?  The whole thing was choreographed and executed just as written in the training manual.  Then it was reported as if it was spontaneous when any reporter who was even pretending to do his job could have discovered with one click of a mouse this was a put up job.

And the beat goes on:

OFA, which is run by ex-Obama officials and staffers, plans to stage 400 rallies across 42 states this year to attack Trump and Republicans over ObamaCare’s repeal.  OFA boasts more than 250 offices nationwide and more than 32,000 organizers, with another 25,000 actively under training. Since November, it’s beefed up staff and fundraising, though as a “social welfare” nonprofit, it does not have to reveal its donors.

These aren’t typical Black Lives Matter or Occupy Wall Street marchers, but rather professionally trained organizers who go through a six-week training program similar to the training — steeped in Alinsky agitation tactics — Obama received in Chicago when he was a community organizer.

Chicago socialist Saul Alinsky, known by the left as “the father of community organizing,” taught radicals to “rub raw the sores of discontent” and create the conditions for a “revolution.” He dedicated his book, “Rules for Radicals,” to “Lucifer.” Michelle Obama quoted from the book when she helped launch OFA in 2013.

Obama appears to be behind the anti-Trump protests. He praised recent demonstrations against Trump’s travel ban. And last year, after Trump’s upset victory, he personally rallied OFA troops to “protect” his legacy in a conference call. “Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope” over the election results.

He promised OFA activists he would soon join them in the fray.

“Understand that I’m going to be constrained in what I do with all of you until I am again a private citizen, but that’s not so far off,” he said. “You’re going to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff.”

Added the ex-president: “I promise you that next year Michelle and I are going to be right there with you, and the clouds are going to start parting, and we’re going to be busy. I’ve got all kinds of thoughts and ideas about it, but this isn’t the best time to share them.  Point is, I’m still fired up and ready to go, and I hope that all of you are, as well.”

The New York Post among other news organizations is doing the leg work.  The information is readily available for anyone who is interested.  These poor dupes who are out there screaming and marching have been pre-programmed by years of government education and decades of televised propaganda.  They honestly believe whatever the Cartel says is their personal opinion.  They aren’t evil they are merely following and supporting evil.  Lenin called them useful idiots.  That seems a bit harsh so maybe we could give them the benefit of the doubt and just call them professional patsies?

Trump Will Triumph Over Traitors Too March 6, 2017

Today We the People are faced with a situation that is unique in our 241 year history.

Never before has a former president plotted to undermine and depose his successor.  The evidence is pouring in.  His political handler Valerie Jarrett has moved into the ex-president’s palatial mansion in the posh Kalorama section of Washington into the war room for his bid to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.  His goal is to either force The Donald to resign or see him impeached.  This is the center of the web, funded by the international monetary pirate George Soros to overturn the results of the recent election.

Professional agitators and bused in gangs have been running riot all over the country protesting the election results and attacking Trump supporters.  The Media propaganda machine is doing their best to make them look like a majority of the country.  Some state legislators are attempting to pass laws that would use criminal conspiracy and racketeering statutes to combat these counterfeit grass roots demonstrations and violence.

The bureaucratic nomenclature or as they call themselves, “The Permanent Government,” what Rush calls the Deep State or the Fusion Party, or as I call them the twin headed bird of prey is dedicated to negating the votes of millions and tossing the results of the recent election into the dust bin of History.  The media megaphone trumpets the need for a return to the status quo and this serves as the personal opinion of the Kool-Aide drinking fellow travelers.

We who voted to drain the swamp stand in watch as the ship of state runs aground on the reef of bureaucratic inertia.

We are witnessing an unprecedented assault on the Grand Old Republic.  Uncle Sam is attempting to drown Yankee Doodle in leaks, red tape, legislative slight-of-hand, and lies.  Ex-president Obama is orchestrating this so-called resistance. The hold overs from his administration are doing everything they can to throw monkey wrenches into the gears of government.  Now with his Consigliere ensconced in his own home to help coordinate the creeping nation-wide coup the pace is about to increase.  His ex-Attorney General, best remembered for meeting Bill Clinton on a runway while supposedly investigating his wife, is calling for marching, blood, and death in the streets.

All of this is nothing less than a criminal conspiracy, a combination of political hacks, crony capitalists, and their media minions plotting the overthrow of the government.  Nothing less than an attack on the very essence of everything America stands for.

Don’t despair.  Don’t let the constant drumbeat of the Media Megaphone and their fake news get you down.  Remember November 2016 should have proved to even the most doubtful, prayer works and this too shall pass.

Keep the Faith.  Keep the Peace.  We shall overcome.

Trumpism and American Sovereignty March 1, 2017

For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN.  Their four horseman of the American apocalypse; George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like.  From NAFTA to TPP from the WTO to the T-TIP they have sought every opportunity to enroll us as just one more state in their fever dream of a super state with them in control.

Currently the United States has free trade agreements in force with 20 countries. These are:

The interesting thing about most of these agreements is that while we allow goods from these countries to enter our nation duty-free and compete with our own manufacturers our partners do not.  They have various mechanisms to make sure our goods cannot compete in their markets.  They add tariffs by any other name top our goods as the arrive and give subsidies to their goods as they leave.

This anything but level playing field that our leaders have subjected us to is economically the equivalent of playing Russian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol.  It may be exciting but there isn’t any way to win.

Not only have we surrendered our ability to add tariffs to protect our markets against foreign disruption and the eventual destruction of our industrial base we have witnessed.  It also deprives the federal government of a source of revenue which was once enough to run the whole affair without an income tax.  It is not only these two negatives which point out the bad side of this bad deal.  Our globalist leaders have also signed agreements that make American enterprises and individuals subject to the edicts of the bewildering array of organizations and boards which make up the strands designed to hold the American Gulliver down.

Finally in President Donald Trump we have a leader who wants to put America first!  Finally we have a leader who is not dedicated to managing our decline but instead dedicated to our renewal.  We have chosen a leader not to lead us gentle into that good night.  Today we no longer must look at the sun setting upon us.  Today we can see a new sun rise, a new morning in America.  Instead of a leader who apologizes for our History we have a leader who proudly proclaims we will make America great again.

Case in Point:

According to the Financial Times, President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to ignore any rulings by the World Trade Organization that it sees as an affront to U.S. sovereignty.

According to the Times the report says, “Ever since the United States won its independence, it has been a basic principle of our country that American citizens are subject only to laws and regulations made by the U.S. government — not rulings made by foreign governments or international bodies.”  The report continued, “Accordingly, the Trump administration will aggressively defend American sovereignty over matters of trade policy.”

The Wall Street Journal also reviewed the document.  They stated that the policy represents a dramatic departure from the Obama administration, which emphasized international economic rules and the authority of the WTO, a body that regulates trade and resolves disputes among its members.  The report also states that the Trump Administration will use, “all possible sources of leverage to encourage other countries to open up their markets.”

This is akin to a Second Declaration of Independence.  No more will we continue to surrender our sovereignty, the sovereignty our ancestors, our brothers and our sisters have bled and died to establish and protect be diluted in the committees of nameless faceless bureaucrats where America has no more voice than El Salvador.

Strike up the band!  Wave the flags.  A campaign became a movement.  A movement became a revolution.  And this revolution is determined to make America great again!

We Battle Not Against Flesh and Blood February 27, 2017

There are many of us who believe that prayer played a major part in the upset victory of Donald Trump last November.

He may not be a born again Christian. And he may not be one who believes in miracles.  As a person who grew up in the church of Norman Vincent Peale he is the personification of that minister’s theological doctrine of positive thinking.  Like Robert Schuller of Crystal Cathedral fame, or any of the word of faith, gab-it-and-grab-it, believe to receive crowd The Donald believes the words of his mouth have power to shape the world around him.

Anyone who sees the result of being positive as opposed to being negative knows there is much real world sense to this belief.  Is the glass half empty or is it half full?

As spirit-filled born again believers we know that it isn’t about who we are it is all about what He has done and it isn’t about what we have done it is all about who He is.  We know that prayer is the answer and faith is the key.  We know that God can use any tool to accomplish His purpose.

We also know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  And in this struggle we know that a thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand but it shall not come near us if we keep our eyes on Him.

So as we watch our president surrounded by the Progressive Fusion Party of Democrats, Republicans, courts, and media don’t despair.  Don’t return to the couch and think, “We voted him in now we can go back to sleep.”  Now is the time to do battle in the heavenlies.  This Hail Mary victory pass shall not stand unless we hit our knees.  We must hold the president and our nation up in prayers.  Pray confusion into the counsel of the enemy, pray that President Trump has the courage and strength to stand for America when everyone around him is proclaiming they are citizens of the world and that America should be just another state in a UN dominated new world order.

The nation state is what won in November.  The globalist conspiracy was thwarted at the very moment when they thought the last nail would be driven into our coffin.  They had victory snatched out of their talons and they are going berserk as the rail against the last gasp of American independence.

Many of these advocates of global centralization and the authoritarianism it would need to re-distribute the world’s goods claim to be atheists.  They are actually devotees of humanism, worshipers of self.  In other words those who have bitten the apple and listened to the siren song of the serpent, “you will be like God.”

And we also know God has promised, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  If we will do that, if we will turn from this world and embrace Him then we shall receive the benefit of those who wait on the Lord.  We shall renew our strength.  We shall mount up with wings like eagles.  We shall run and not be weary.  We shall walk and not faint.

So why worry when we can pray?

Trump and the Deep State February 22, 2017

Words have meaning.  A word is a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation that functions as a principal carrier of meaning.  Rush Limbaugh is a master of the English language in my opinion on a par with Winston Churchill and is the undisputed American master of quips, labeling, and metaphors.

As if to prove the point, Rush has once again coined a phrase that sums up a cultural phenomenon.  He has dubbed those Progressives embedded within the federal bureaucracy the Deep State.  This label perfectly describes those protected by the civil service acts as well as those political appointees who might be termed BHO holdovers.

The commentary flowing from the Attila the Hun Chair through the golden microphone recently shines a spotlight on the fact that the Praetorian Guard of the establishment are working overtime to overthrow the results of the recent election.

There is something reminiscent of Yogi Berra’s famous “Déjà vu all over again” in all of this.  It reminds me of the last president who was vocal about trying to drain the swamp.  Richard Nixon set out to reform the alphabet soup of agencies that supposedly provide the government with intelligence.  It turned into a game of who gets who first.  The entire Watergate debacle was populated by ex-CIA and ex-FBI agents. The CIA reports were withheld from everyone until the deed had been done, a president overthrown, and everyone involved safely out with the usual federal golden parachute of a plumb pension with a Cadillac package.

To catch lightening in a jar and see how this was all engineered and orchestrated see the seminal book The Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin.  This is the only book that tells the other side of the Watergate myth.

If you consume the bilge being belched out by the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC Cartel you would think that our president was attempting to establish a rule by decree imperial presidency.  That is what we have had for the last eight years.  That is what he was elected to replace with a government that governs as opposed to rule.  And that is what the Deep State is trying their best to avoid.  A government of the people, by the people, and for the people is as about as far from what we have had as you can get.  That is what we voted for.  That is what our President is trying to deliver and that is what the preprogrammed, prepaid protestors with their fill-in-the-blank signs are trying to prevent.

However you call it; the Country Party versus the Government Party, the Perpetually Re-elected Versus the Flyover Country, or Them versus Us it all adds up to one thing a nation divided.

Leave it to Rush to coin a name for that twin headed bird of prey, the government party of power, the Fusion Party.  These are two gangs of political hacks plundering the producers of this country bound together by their contempt for us and their greed.   They are bound and determined that they will not allow any motley collection of voters get between them and their swag.

The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC Cartel continues its onslaught against America’s president.  The Hollywood elites pile on.  Award show after award show turns into nothing more than an opportunity and platform to trash the President Trump.

The late night comedians are seen as valid social commentators by so many of the fellow-travelers.  They seem to think the opinions of the writers of jokes and the producers of skits tell them all they need to know about current events.

Unelected black robed hacks usurp the authority of the Commander-in-Chief and don’t even pretend it has anything to do with the law, or the Constitution, or common sense.

Since the Judicial Plutocrats thwarted the will of the people as expressed in Mr. Trump’s refugee pause research tells us 77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries.

Contrary to the propaganda broadcast from the media wing of the Democrat Party, i.e. the Cartel according to the Washington Examiner:

Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump‘s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism, bolstering the administration’s immigration ban.

According to a report out Saturday, at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as “students,” and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens.

The Center for Immigration Studies calculated the numbers of convicted terrorists from the Trump Seven:

— Somalia: 20

— Yemen: 19

— Iraq: 19

— Syria: 7

— Iran: 4

— Libya: 2

And just since the temporary Refugee ban has been held captive by the courts of injustice 1,049 refugees from these seven nations have been rushed into the country by the Progressive bureaucrats who dwell in the bowls of the beast.

Our President is surrounded by sharks who will perpetually pretend there is blood in the water.  We must support him!  We must let him know that he is not alone in the battle to Make America Great Again.  It was our voted that sent him there and we must let him know we are still here.  We haven’t nodded back into the game and returned to the couch for a snooze until the next election.

We are too busy working to counter the professional agitators and full-time protestors recruited and paid for by the Soros Anti-Liberty League.  So we must do what we can.  Send the President a message and let him know that you support him and you are there.

Contact the White house https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/#page

Don’t delay do it today.

Trump Travel Ban And The Courts of Injustice February 10, 2017

The Ninth Circus out on the Left Coast denied the Justice Department’s request on Sunday for an immediate reinstatement of President Donald Trump’s ban on accepting certain travelers and all refugees.   These politically motivated doctrinaire ideologues that custom dictates we must refer to as judges do not follow the basic instructions for their job.  It is not to make policy or to judge the correctness of policy as set by the other two branches of government.  It is to determine whether or not the actions of the other two branches follow the law.  This is the exact opposite of what the Seattle based U.S. District Judge James Robart and the three judges of the Über liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has done.

According to the Congressional Research Service Federal immigration law includes Section 1182(f), which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate”

This makes it abundantly clear that President Trump’s Executive Order concerning a temporary ban on refugees in general and specifically from certain countries known to be either in a state of domestic war or previously declared as state sponsors of terrorism.  Obviously the “So-Called” judges are not even pretending to rule according to statute.  They are countermanding an order by the chief executive of the United States to an executive department and thus interfering in the operation of another branch of government for political purposes.

The argument that this is imposing a religious ban which is unconstitutional is not based on the Constitution.

The original, unamended Constitution contains only one explicit reference to religion.  This is the Article VI ban on religious tests for “any office or public trust under the United States.”  Even though there have been many court cases testing the relationship between church and state they have all dealt with the First Amendment no establishment clause and none have involved the religious test ban.  It clearly applies to federal office holders.  That has never been questioned and even the Progressives and their Living Document ACLU attorneys have never before tried to stretch it to fit the revolutionary cause De jure.

Beside which the President’s travel ban is obviously not a religiously based ban since people of all religions are banned and the citizens of the most populous Islamic countries are not.

In Chicago we used to look at the courthouses filled with crooked judges and fixit lawyers and say, “It may say justice on the outside but that doesn’t mean there’s any on the inside.”  After eight years of the Outfit running the country and 28 years of the Progressives packing the courts with political hacks this is what we have.  A judicial system that legislates from the bench protected by life-time tenure and a nation habituated to following their every whim.

That twin headed bird of prey, the government party has been rebuked and rejected by the newly motivated member of the country party with their voter revolution.  Now they mount their three pronged counter revolution:  one, the Courts to overturn the actions of our President; two the legislatures to talk everything to death, obstruct, obstruct, obstruct; and three the liberal fascists out in the street burning property and beating anyone who disagrees with them.

The lawlessness of the American Judicial system is on open display and it it isn’t pretty.  It reminds me of the politicization of the IRS, the Justice Department, the EPA and every other bureau of the Obama regime.

The Progressive foe our President Trump faces is like the Hydra, a monster in Greek mythology.  It had many heads and every time someone would cut off one of them, two more heads would grow out of the stump.  So too this insidious rot will attack from many quarters.  It will shift and change morphing from this to that trying to never appear to be what it really is a generations long attempt to subvert limited government, personal freedom, and economic opportunity and substitute it with central planning and the authoritarianism that always requires.

Don’t fooled by the biased courts, the perpetually re-elected political hacks who confirm political hacks to the bench, or their propaganda arm the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC cartel.  This fight isn’t over, or at least it shouldn’t be.  According to Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution Congress has the power and the authority to control the jurisdiction of the courts.  In fact it clearly states the jurisdiction exists, “with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.”  If Congress had the backbone it could trim the sails of the judicial man-of-war as it attacks our liberties and common sense.  Keep your eye on the prize.  Support the President with calls to your representatives and your prayers.

Keep the Faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

They Want a Civil War We Have a Prayer Meeting February 8, 2017

The American Revolution changed the world.  Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths.  That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  These words shook a world held in the vise-grip of hereditary privilege inspiring people around the globe.  Our Constitution established a representative federal republic with a limited government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Over the space of 241 years we have watched as our constitutionally limited government grew until it’s a leviathan running amok like Godzilla in Tokyo smashing things and scaring boy scouts.  Today the Federal government is the largest employer in America, states are the largest employers in the states and counties are among the largest employers in the counties get the picture?  Government is on a rampage and unless Mothra is going to fly in to save the day we have to deal with Frankenstein-on-the-Potomac ourselves.

Such brazen power-plays as when the Executive Branch under our now departed and not lamented leader BHO issued the Legislature an ultimatum, either pass Cap-N-Trade or we’ll impose it administratively through command-and-control made the dramatic changes in our political culture shockingly apparent.   Has our balance of powers melted away under the glare of executive orders, signing statements and ultimatums?   Some people say this is evolution.  To others it’s devolution.  Our hard-won and dearly-paid-for Republic has been devolving into a command-and-control all-encompassing central-state.

With political dynasties bequeathing congressional seats like hereditary fiefdoms it’s becoming hard to explain why we left the British Empire.

We have not only had taxation without representation as congressional party-line voters ignore their constituents we have also had representation without taxation as the perpetually re-elected Lords and Ladies represent the illegal immigrants and the professional welfare hammock-riders.

These big government social planners believed they had achieved their community organizing goals fulfilling a paraphrase of Lincoln’s famous quote, “It may be true that you can’t fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.”  They believed the activist BHO administration would fundamentally change America beyond the ability of We the People to even have a chance of righting the Ship of State.

However, if these would be commissars from the faculty lounge would have bothered to step 20 miles outside the Beltway obviously there was a counter-revolution brewing.  The Tea Party was overtaking the Republican Party in popularity.  It had already supplanted them at the grassroots of the conservative movement.  By 2010 an avalanche of voters thronged the polling places demanding their country back.  With a RINO like Romney heading the ticket in 2012, millions stayed home.  However, in 2014 they resurged and once again gave BHO and his Progressives the shellacking they deserved.

Following the tactics of Saul Alinsky brought the Obama-ACORN-SEIU coalition control of the Democratic Party and the country but following the Cloward/Piven Strategy for overwhelming the system to impose an alternative system has to lead to a complete repudiation of this radical departure from traditional American politics and economics.  We aren’t Venezuela.  Even after decades of legislative efforts to progressively create a permanent underclass of government dependents who would follow their leaders to the next looting of productive members of society the majority in this country still want freedom and opportunity not cradle-to-grave mediocrity.

We the People have staged a counter-revolution against this growing tyranny.  Was it a violent revolution?  Did we stage mass demonstrations, attack opponents, or try to silence debate?  No, it was a peaceful, lawful revolution at the ballot box.

Remember the illegal and unprecedented assaults upon America that we endured from BHO and his regime.  The imperial president used the EPA to impose the onerous restrictions of Cap-N-Trade after Congress rejected them stunting and strangling the economy with regulations.  He used the Department of Homeland Security to change the enforcement of immigration policy and cook the books without any messy public debate by the representatives of the people.

Ruling by decree, “I have a pen and I have a phone,” is hardly compatible with constitutionally-limited government.  We were told the administration had solutions.  They shoved their prescription to heal the greatest health care system in the world with the big lie, “If you like your plan you can keep your plan. Period.”  Like a pig-in-a-poke their San Francisco leader told us, “We have to pass the plan to find out what’s in the plan.”  They claimed to have a solution to save or create jobs while we lost jobs every month or created low paying part time jobs at best, a draconian solution for the man-made global warming hoax, a solution for endless wars for elusive peace.  They said they had a solution for everything.  It reminded me of the drug dealer saying, “If you’ve got a problem take a pill.”

They said they wanted a contribution.  Back in the good old change we could believe in days the dialogue of class warfare repeated that no one making under 250,000, or was it 150,000, or was it …anyway only the evil rich would have to pay a dime of new taxes.  Many working people found out we were rich after BHO’s first April 15th stand and deliver day.

Everyone has known since at least that tax-cutting wild man JFK that cutting taxes increases revenue to the government and raising them lowers revenue.  Since the government knows raising taxes lowers revenue and since they said they were raising taxes to increase revenue what were they trying to do?  Complicated tax codes are used as a way to incentivize and de-incentivize behavior.

If you want more widgets give tax breaks for buying widgets.  If you want less widgets tax widgets.  Using that for a guide notice what was being pushed and what’s being pulled?  Under BHO we saw taxes on producers and tax breaks for non-producers, tax cuts for people who don’t pay taxes and tax increases for those who do.  Taking the money of producers to bailout the greedy, reward the cronies and support the lazy.

Executive orders and signing statements have been used in Republican and Democrat administrations for years to change the Constitution without changing the Constitution.  In BHO’s USSA sweeping new powers by regulators threatened to make Congress irrelevant as an all-powerful Executive Branch grew like a malignant tumor.

We the People didn’t lose heart.  We didn’t despair.  In faith we knew it was going to be all right?

I remember how many of these articles I end during those dark days of the BHO regime with, “Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall Overcome.”

Today as the defeated and rejected Progressives stage rallies, protests and riots I urge the same counsel.  The last thing we need in this crowded theater full of combustible emotions is either a match or someone shouting fire.  The snowflakes and those who manipulate them combined with the fellow travelers and the useful idiots are like a bully pushing someone hoping to elicit a response.  They appear to be hoping to spark a civil war.

I believe prayer got us here.  And though the prearranged, prepaid, and predictable demonstrations and riots are meant to provoke us to respond don’t let them worry you.

Why worry when you can pray?

Trump Republicans Where Are You? February 6, 2017

After the Democrats won the trifecta in 2008 capturing the House, the Senate and the White House conservatives watched in horror as the Progressive liberals shoved their collectivist agenda down our throats.

Then came the Taxed Enough Already TEA Party revolution.  It was amazing.  I watched with joy as tens of thousands of people got up off the couch, turned off the game, and became involved in politics many for the first time.  It was heady time of mass demonstrations, organizing for change and exciting election campaigns by novices tilting at windmills and attempting to take down the perpetually re-elected.

This led to the wave election of 2010 which gave the Republicans control of the House.  And what did our new majority do?  They went to Washington and found their place at the trough re-electing Boehner as their leader, they re-affirmed the Patriot Act and started passing continuing resolutions and nothing changed.

They told us, “We can’t do anything with just the House we need the Senate too.”

So in 2014 in another wave election through the herculean efforts of the grassroots we gave them the Senate and nothing changed.

They told us, “We can’t do anything with just the House and the Senate we need the White House too.”

So in 2016 defying the odds, the odds makers, the media and the establishment of both parties we gave them the White House too.

Now that We the People have given them both them Congress and the White House what do we hear?

John “Reach Across the Aisle” McCain and his faithful side kick Lindsey “Democrat in all but name” Graham couldn’t wait to start criticizing the one man in Washington who seems to know how to get things done.  And has the guts to do it.

Then our supposedly right wing leaders tell us that they can’t repeal and replace Obamacare without 60 votes.  Funny the Democrats could pass it without 60 votes but te Republicrats need 60 to repeal it.  Who says so?  The Senate Parliamentarian that’s who?

Why should this unelected bureaucrat get to tell the representatives of We the People what they can and cannot do?

The Parliamentarian’s job is to be an expert on the Senate rules to know them backwards and forwards.  He is also to make rulings about what is allowed and prohibited according to those rules.  So far so good.  The man is just doing his job.

However, according to Article One, Section Five of the Constitution it is up to the Senate itself to set the rules that the Parliamentarian must know and rule on.  It only takes 51 Senators to change the rules and the Republicans have 52.  So change the rules and do what you promised you would do.  Repeal and replace Obamacare so America can be healthy again.  Don’t give us some watered down “Repair” gobbledygook.

The conservative side of the twin headed bird of prey that is the Government Party resents that act that all of the peasants with their pitchforks, torches, and votes have put someone in the White House who isn’t one of their puppets.  They are working together with their Progressive twins in the Democrat Party and the Media to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

We cannot allow this to happen!  The millions who awoke out of their stupor, turned off the game and voted for real change must stay activated.  Or else these political hacks are going to subvert our revolution and bring back the status quo.  Hold their feet to the fire!  Call your Senators and let them know you demand that they stand with President Trump.  We must drain the swamp now while we have momentum and votes on our side or the quick sand of bureaucratic inertia will drag us back under the surface and the alligators, frogs and snakes will continue to rule the roost.

Change the rules.  Go nuclear or use the Reid Option as it should be called.  Do whatever you have to do within the constitutional framework to fulfill the promise of the new day.  Leave your own agendas behind and Make America Great Again!
