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.

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.

Support Trump Now! February 13, 2017

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 Hits it Out of the Park January 30, 2017

In a political world trained to the wretched rhythm of the perpetually re-elected and their focus-grouped nuances never meant to clarify as much as cover their rear-guard the penetrating pronouncements of President Trump are like a breath of fresh air in a partially sealed coffin.

On the one hand we have a trimmer like Big Bill Clinton of New York’s Sixth Crime Family.  When confronted about his perjury he had the chutzpah to look directly into the camera and say, “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”  The most definitive, declarative thing he ever said to us was, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

This is emblematic of what we have been conditioned to expect, the lowest common denominator of plausible deniability wrapped up in the quivering forthrightness of a lie labeled as the truth.

On the other hand we have The Donald.  Standing in the belly of the beast, surrounded by the political hacks who have been hacking us up he had the courage to say, “For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.”  Looking into the camera he did not hedge and equivocate like the ex-lawyer Bill Clinton.  He did not try to lead us off on a fool’s errand to build democracy around the world in countries who don’t want it like George the Second.  He did not wax on for hours using the word I more than anything else like the self-absorbed narcissist BHO.

No, Mr. Trump not only called a spade a spade he tossed the whole deck in the air for a political version of fifty-two pick-up when he continued, “Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered — but the jobs left, and the factories closed.”

After years of hearing nothing but the cha-ching of politicians making fortunes as public servants.  After decades of wondering what happened to the Reagan Revolution as Progressives from both sides of the twin headed bird of prey that makes up the Government Party finally we heard from the Country Party when our President Trump said, “The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”

And now after the first week of an actual working president he also nailed the media’s hide to the wall.  Not only were working people who believe in America First cheering we were giving him a standing O when he said, “I think the media is the opposition party in many ways.”  How long have we thought that?  They are no longer a watch dog.  They became the Democrat’s attack dog long ago.  For a perfect example of their biased presentation of the gatekeepers compare the recent so-called “Woman’s March” and the March for Life.

The Woman’s March got wall-to-wall coverage the week before it was scheduled no doubt ginning up attendance.  This led to wall-to-wall coverage by an army of reporters and cameras while it was going on followed by a week of glowing reviews and video highlights.  Now reflect on the March for Life.  This massive event has filled the streets of Washington every year since the abomination of Roe v. Wade in a vacuum.  There is the partisan bias of the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media in stark relief.

The Democrat Party is in disarray.  Hillary may be contemplating a talk show to make hers the face of the opposition to America First.  The Ego from Chicago may be planning on moving into his Washington mansion and popping out at propitious times to voice the collectivist reaction to America First.  And we always have Pocahontas in the wings ready to do a war dance, a rain dance, or just shout old soviet slogans against America First. And of course the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party or as they are also known, the media will be right there to supply the sights and sounds and film at six against America First.

Luckily we have someone who is ready to stand up and voice the heart-felt cry of so many who believe in America First.  Our President Trump seized the moment and captured the spirit of the age when surrounded by the thieves who came in the night to steal the American dream he said:

That all changes — starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

At that moment and in many others since he has captured lightening in a bottle, said exactly what we have been waiting to hear, and hit it right out of the park.

Can I get an Amen?

Trump Makes America Great Again – Why Wait January 18, 2017

I know the snowflakes and their geriatric leaders are freaking out because they have lost the keys to the gravy train.  However, out here where Americans work every day to pay the bills our President, The Donald isn’t waiting to take the oath to fulfill his oath to us.

Just like the interminable hostage crisis that Jimmy Malaise Carter couldn’t solve solved itself when the Gipper took the oath of office.  As Ronaldus Magnus placed his hand on the bible and raised his hand the Ayatollahs deiced, “We don’t want to mess with him,” and sent them home.  So too as BHO’s death grip on the throat of American enterprise weakens people begin to see the light at the end of the collectivist tunnel. Just the promise of fewer regulations, tax relief, and the Commissars returning to their faculty lounges is enough to inspire entrepreneurs to hope again.  It is enough to ignite America’s Can-do class to once again plan and project growth instead of stagnation.

Just look at what has already been announced and imagine what will happen once the assault on American enterprise has finally ended.

As reported by Warner Todd Huston in Breitbart:

Ford: 700 Jobs to Start

As January began, Ford Motor Company went public to tell Donald Trump that they are ready to deal with the new administration and also noted that at least 700 new jobs were on the table with more to come as the year rolls onward.

SAP SE: 400 Jobs

German business-software maker SAP SE is adding nearly 400 jobs to its Pittsburgh and suburban Philadelphia facilities, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Amazon.com: 100,000 Jobs

Amazon is eyeing a huge expansion starting this year and recently announced it intended to add up to 100,000 workers to its retail staff in new facilities across the nation.

Many of these jobs will be in brand new fulfillment centers the online giant plans to begin building this year.

Lockheed Martin: 1,800 Jobs

Aeronautics leader Lockheed Martin told President-elect Trump that it intends to hire over 1,800 new workers in the coming months.

Indeed, Lockheed feels that its expansion will bring even more jobs indirectly. CEO Marillyn Hewson said of the new jobs, “when you think about the supply chain across 45 states in the U.S., it’s going to be thousands and thousands of jobs.”

GM: 1,500 Jobs and $1 Billion Investment

General Motors said this month that it is looking to re-invest in factories in the U.S.A. and will add some 1,500 or more jobs to its roster of workers. The plans will include a one-billion-dollar plan to build new manufacturing lines in the U.S.

Bayer AG: $8 Billion Investment

The Trump transition team is touting a commitment by German-based Bayer AG pharmaceutical company to invest an additional $8 billion in the U.S.A. in research and development in cooperation with Monsanto AG.

The announcement came on the heels of a “very productive meeting” between the Trump team and Bayer CEO Werner Baumann and Monsanto chief Hugh Grant.

Walmart: 10,000 Retail Jobs, 24,000 Construction Jobs

Retail giant Walmart is eyeing an expansion plan to build new stores that will eventually amount to some 10,000 new jobs in outlets across the country. But it will also mean up to 24,000 jobs for construction workers needed to build the new stores.

Walmart intends to build at least 59 new stores in fiscal year 2017, according to a statement by the company.

LKQ: 150 Jobs and New HQ in Tennessee

Publicly traded automotive company LKQ Corp is establishing a new headquarters in the Nashville, Tennessee, area. It is a sign that the company feels that the automotive industry in the U.S. is on track to grow in the age of Trump.

Add to that other announced industry expansions: Carrier 1,100; US Steel 10,000; IBM 25,000; Soft Bank 50,000; Dow Chemical 1,000; Tesla 1900; Sprint 5,000; One Web 3,000; Black & Decker 100; Chrysler 2,000; Toyota 5,000; and Apple 2,000 and it becomes apparent how much change some real hope can inspire.

During the tenure of our Regulator-in-Chief it is estimated that 107,000 jobs were created or saved per year.  Since the unexpected victory of Himself and even before the official beginning of the Trump Revolution by my estimation he has added 220,650.  Not bad for a prequel.  Just imagine the growth we will see in the coming years.

Remember the Democrat controlled Creature from Jekyll Island will do its best to slow or sink the economy.  The rent-mob Progressive grass-roots simulation will do its best to agitate.  The nomenclature in Congress and the bureaucracy will do its best to malign, de-legitimize and possibly impeach The Donald.  However, I believe that they will not be able to get the lightening back in the bottle.  I believe that unlike the Reagan Revolution this re-birth of the American Spirit will not be betrayed and sold out by a thousand points of light and led into decades of darkness.

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

Then Came Trump December 27, 2016

So that was Christmas, and what have we done?  Another year over and a new one just begun!

In the still sweet morning of December 26, people start preparing for the next blast of holiday cheer. Happy New Year!!!

What will 2017 bring?

The Progressives from George Read-My-Lips Bush through the Clinton Inter-Lewd, George Endless-Wars-For-Peace Bush, and Barack the Destroyer managed to turn Ronaldus Magnus’ Morning in America into Mourning in America.  We watched a slow motion train wreck as we won the Cold War and seemed to be on the verge of losing the peace as the centralizing finger wagers did their best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and then came Trump.

Think of where we were just a few short weeks ago:

  • an unopposed invasion on our southern border
  • a collapse taking place in our manufacturing sector
  • a loss of allies due to our own unreliability
  • a growth of enemies due to our own weakness
  • Detroit and other once proud cities decaying before our eyes
  • attacks on cops, Christmas, and anything else we held dear becoming common place
  • the Progressives where so self-assured that they would pound the last nail in our coffin, Hillary Clinton, they didn’t even bother to mount a campaign beyond attack adds

And then came Trump.

The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media as represented in the shrinking megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC CABAL and their cable and print sister wives haven’t given up.  They are doing anything they can to help the Progressives delegitimize The Donald.  There is no burden to great, no sacrifice of credibility to shameful, no lie so ridiculous that they will not print or broadcast in their efforts to undermine the draining of the swamp.  The silent majority has tried their hope and change, and they want to change it back to what it was before: America.  The little people of Big Media thought they had their version of new speak, new thought, group think, PC mind control down pat. And then came Trump.

The cry baby poor losers and their snowflake minions are squawking like a goose getting a mammogram.  The celebrity limousine liberals are threatening to leave the country.   The neo-cons are plotting and planning to sabotage the agenda people voted for.  Every liberal you know repeats the talking points of the DNC pumped out by the pseudo-news anchors and thinks these are their own opinions.   Chicken Little assures us the sky is falling. And then came Trump.

People say, “What if he breaks his promises?”

I say, if I give ten dollars to a charity to do good I have done good.  If that charity then takes my ten dollars and throws it away, that is on them.  It may be shown that we were naïve.  It may be revealed that we were gullible.  But I know when I am faced with the choice between the last nail in my coffin and a chance, I will vote for the chance every time.

I also know that I have a promise:

A thousand may fall at your side,

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look,

And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place,

No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

The election has come and gone.  2016 has come and gone.  Many looked forward to 2017 with dread.  We saw nothing before us but the continued decline of our great nation, the last best hope of mankind, managed by the very collectivist Progressives who were orchestrating that decline.  We saw ourselves being swamped by the import-a-voter invasion designed to relegate us to nothing more than a tax base for the next dystopian utopia.  In Christ we always have hope.  In the world our hope was about to be crushed under the juggernaut of New York’s Sixth Crime Family and their massive political machine. And then came Trump.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.  A new day is dawning in America.  The Progressives thought we would go with a whimper instead of a bang.  However we refused to go gently into that good night.  We refused to let hope and change kill our hope so we voted to change the course of History.  First came a determination that the nation shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. And then came Trump.

Happy New Year!!

The December Revolution December 19, 2016

What the Democrat cry-baby sore losers and their snowflake generation supporters are calling for is nothing less than a coup.  They are attempting to intimidate Electors into breaking faith with the citizens of their States.  In many cases they are attempting to con these Electors into breaking the laws of their States.  All of these machinations in a desperate attempt to steal the election fairly won by Donald Trump and hand it to someone else in a December Revolution.  Failing to install either their own failed candidate or someone who will play ball with them they seek to through the election into the House to delegitimize The Donald.

They just can’t believe that the voters in enough States to win the electoral vote were so stubborn, so heard-headed, so intent on salvaging their country they successfully resisted the Progressive’s wall-to-wall propaganda driven attempt to pound the last nail in our own coffin.  Progressives can never admit they lost because people rejected their ideas or programs.  No, it’s always because of the vast right-wing conspiracy, the trickery of the Republicans, the stupidity of the voters.  Or this year’s newly minted excuse, the Russians.  It can never be because people see through their shop-worn rehash of Soviet era collectivism.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I voted for Trump and no Russian told me to do it.

When President Clinton won twice, with overwhelming media support, because Ross Perrot split the vote that was fair.  When President Obama won, with overwhelming media support, with “Hope and Change” that was fair.  When he won, with overwhelming media support, because “If you liked your plan you could keep your plan” that was fair.  However when Trump wins against the odds, attacked by every side that is beyond the pale.

And forget about that, “She won the popular vote” smokescreen.  If you study motor voter on the Left Coast alone you will see that more than enough illegal immigrants were granted voting rights to turn that around.

They are now blaming the Electoral System.  If you read the Constitution there is no mention of the people voting for the president at all.  All that is mentioned is the legislatures of the several States choosing Electors who then choose the president.  In the election of 1824 there were States where the people never did vote, just the State legislatures and their chosen Electors.

The Electoral College wasn’t designed to make sure not that unqualified people didn’t become president as the media tells us today.  It was designed to make sure presidents were elected by a majority of the States and not just by the most populous ones.

Electoral majorities do not appear spontaneously like clouds before a shower. They are constructed by national political parties that build them with an eye to the Electoral College’s enforced need for a diverse coalition of States.  Therefore, the Electoral College system demands that the winning majority are not geographically confined to a few populous States but are instead reflections of a nation-wide decision as opposed to a mere majority of the Citizens of New York, California, Texas and Florida.

This election is no singularity.  Of the forty-eight elections since 1824 eighteen resulted in presidents who won less than 50% of the vote.  In 1860, Abraham Lincoln, received 39.9 percent.  In 1912, Woodrow Wilson won just 41.8 percent of the popular vote.  In 1992, Bill Clinton won 43 percent of the popular vote.  This has happened before and it will likely happen again.

What may never happen again is this mass movement of patriotic Americans who have risen up and demanded that the Progressives quit engineering and managing our decline.  We demanded that the silent majority be heard instead of being drowned out by the Progressives and the aggressive ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC propaganda machine.  We demanded that someone lead us out of the wilderness and back to the mountain top.  We have demanded an America first administration dedicated to making America great again.

This is no fluke.  This is no mistake.  This is a new beginning.  This is the true December Revolution.  It is scheduled to happen today.  Let the bells ring and the choirs sing.  This is the culmination of the Tea Party revolt of 2010 and the repudiation of the Progressives and their collectivist ways.  This is the dawn of a rebirth for limited government, personal freedom and economic opportunity.  Mark this day down in your calendars and your minds.  This is a day you will want to tell your grandchildren about.  This is a day when the people triumphed over the political elites and marched with their pitchforks and torches to drain the swamp.

Today Donald Trump will be officially elected president of the United States!  This is the day the Lord has made!

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.
