The Trump Agenda What We Voted For September 6, 2017

Remember the campaign?  Trump leapt in front of a parade that began in 2009 with the birth of the TEA Party Movement.  The Trump campaign embodied everything those who wanted America to recover from the Obama debacle desired.  What it proclaimed, what we were promised was an end to open borders, a repeal and replace of Obamacare, tax reform, and an end to give-away trade deals that have impoverished and debilitated us.  In other words an America First administration supported by a do-something Congress.

And what have we gotten for our vote?  The RINOs led by Ryan, McConnell, McCain, Flake, and Graham continue to obstruct everything President Trump tries to do.  No repeal and replace.  No tax reform, no support on the immigrant ban, and no support in stopping the bogus Russian-under-every -table investigation.

The Republicans said they needed the House to stop Obama.  We gave them the House and they said they needed the Senate too.  We gave them both houses of Congress and they did nothing to stop Obama.  They said they needed the Presidency and then they could do something to right the ship-of-state.  We gave them the presidency and since then it’s become obvious these political hacks were stringing us along all along.

We need to hold their feet to the fire.  Call them.  Email them.  Show up at their town meetings.  Let them know we want them to make America great again.  Let them know we want what we voted for.  We want an America First government.

I doubt that any amount of lobbying by those of us in fly-over country will have any impact on the crooked lawyers and others who hold the levers of power no matter what political shell-game party they say they belong to.  There is only one party in Congress and it’s a two-headed bird of prey out to eat our lunch.

Watch for an acceleration of the witch hunt.  Watch for movement on the impeachment front.  Watch for a complete sell-out of everything we voted for in the interests of what the special interests paid for.

The AntiFa Blackshirts and other bully boys who serve as the shock troops for the silent coup will not stop until there’s blood in the water.  The ABCCBSNBCPBSNPRCNNMSNBC Cartel will continue to cover-up the truth and proclaim the lie.  The Neocons have re-captured our foreign policy and are driving us towards the cliff.

It’s time for all of us who voted for President Trump to prepare for the counter-revolution.  Like Charley Brown trying to kick the football we keep on trying and trying no matter how many times they move the ball.  America, the greatest experiment in freedom in human history is worth trying to save from the statists and their collective fever dreams of utopia.

Now is the time for all patriots to come to the aid of their country.  Make your voice heard.  Raise your hand and vote by participating in the process for making America great again.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How do we break the log jam?

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.
