Trump Exposed!!!!

Using the considerable research sources at dnewman.org, we were able to uncover some deeply troubling intelligence that has exposed the Trump connections to Russia.  Yes, I’m sad to say those connections are deep, financial in nature, and go to the highest level of government in Russia:  Vladimir Putin.  I know this will dishearten many Americans.  And it’s sad to say, but this will please many Americans who are HRC supporters, members the liberal left media, Democratic senators and congressmen and congresswomen.  It is troubling to say this, but it will also encourage some Republicans from the Establishment who from the beginning did not want Donald Trump in the Party, on the presidential ticket, and especially not as President.

The ties apparently were initiated several years ago as the Russian government found the nation in deep financial straits.  Putin and his cronies began to look for revenue generating opportunities, for the country was cash broke and their credit capabilities had become non-existent due to the political climate of anti-Russian economics in Europe and Asia.  European heads of state shunned the Russian leader and refused to enter discussions with Russian department heads about certain sanctions placed on Russia by the European Union that were being honored not by China but several other Asian countries.  Russia — though not widely known in world geo-political circles — was in deep trouble and facing financial calamity.  Putin needed a way out.  He looked desperately to the Chinese for help.

Baron David de Rothschild

Enter then “businessman” Donald Trump.  Trump was actually in the middle of negotiating development of a number of luxury golf resorts throughout the Chinese Mainland.  As it turns out, part of those negotiations included the Trump Organization acting as a “facilitator” between the Chinese and several of the Rothschild banks in Europe to sell large volumes of gold to the Chinese, who have been quietly trying to corner the World gold markets.  Trump for many years has held close ties with the Rothschild family members — specifically Baron de Rothschild, who is the Chief Operator of the Rothschild banking entity that owns all or part of over 300 banks worldwide.  Many think they own the majority of the gold on Earth.

Rumors that gold that has long been held in Fort Knox, Kentucky has disappeared from the Kentucky fortress.  Senator Rand Paul actually called for an audit of that gold several years ago but was rebuffed by the Obama Administration and nothing was ever done.   It was later discovered that most of the gold held in Fort Knox had indeed been quietly moved to the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City for “safekeeping.”  (Most do not know that the Rothschilds own controlling interest in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York)  That gold along with large Rothschild Bank gold reserves were part of the massive deal struck between the Rothschilds and the Chinese using Donald Trump’s companies as intermediaries in dozens of small transactions to mask the deal.  It will probably come as no surprise that a huge portion of that gold ended up in vaults deep within the Kremlin.  That became Putin’s ticket out of the financial devastation Russia was facing — all thanks to Donald Trump.

What was the quid pro quo for Trump?  You guessed it:  Russian hacking of DNC servers, servers of the Clinton campaign, and a “dis-information” campaign throughout U.S. media to assure Trump the Presidency.  Obviously that ploy worked.  This  “wholesale” of U.S. gold through the Rothschilds, through China and then to Russia was actually initiated by a former little girl who grew up in Central Europe who had found a comfortable home in the U.S. — Melania Trump.  She actually introduced her husband to Vladimir Putin during a secret meeting held at a tiny resort in northern Russia.  That meeting was attended by the Chinese President.  For her part Melania was generously rewarded by the Russian President with several plots of land directly on the Black Sea in southern Russia.  The Trump Organization already has plans in place to build a massive resort on the site after Trump’s term in office.

This could very well be the end of the Trump presidency.  I’m certain that when this news hits the national news this weekend, it will go viral and to the news for days.  Today  marks the untimely and unexpected political death of Donald Trump.

A couple of things to note here:  this really was not about gold — it was about uranium.  This really was not about Donald Trump — it was about Hillary Clinton.  This really was not about China — it was about Canada.  This really was not about Melania Trump — it was about Bill Clinton.  In the story above, replace gold with uranium, Trump with Hillary, China with Canada, Melania with Bill Clinton.  Then let’s piece this together for you:

While Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton headed a State Department committee that had to weigh in on and endorse any sale of uranium to a foreign entity.  She put together a deal to sell 20% of the U.S. uranium production to a Canadian company.  Then to many’s surprise, that Canadian company sold to a Russian company controlled by Vladimir Putin.  The quid pro quo mentioned above came from Putin to the Clintons when Bill was hired to give several speeches to Russian parties and groups that netted him several million dollars after that sale was completed.  The only thing in the first story that resonates as being truthful (at least in part)  is that Vladimir Putin did through the Secretary of State gain control of 1/5 of America’s uranium.  Though there’s no direct proof that Putin’s payment for putting that deal together was the huge amounts paid for Bill to speak to Russian interests, it cannot be a simple coincidence.

Everyone in D.C. is running around with their hair on fire screaming “The Russians did it!  The Russians did it!”  The Russians DID get 20% of our uranium and did so with the full cooperation and endorsement of the former Secretary of State and former President Obama.  Bill Clinton was paid more than $1 million for making those speeches.  Those are facts.

The sick part of the Russian Investigation is that with all the screaming and name calling, the method of proof of the apparent illegal activities by former Obama Administration intelligence personnel, nobody is discussing the single most important things in this entire story:  the actual data, documentation, and complete details of WHAT was released to whom by whom.  All they want to do is what Washington does best:  scream at each other about who did what about the information and NOTHING about the information itself.

I’m sorry to be a little tricky in the first part of this post, but remember:  It’s April Fools Day!  I just wish this whole story was an April Fools joke.  It’s not.  Hillary really did facilitate the uranium sale to Russia.  Bill really did get millions for speeches to Russians.  The other reality?  With all this actual proof on the table, no one is investigating the real “Russia Gate.”  They want to find a way to bury Donald Trump rather than get the truth.

 

Funny of the Week

Funny #1

I was sitting at Starbucks one day a month ago and two really large women came in, speaking with an interesting accent.   So I said, “Cool accent, are you two ladies from Ireland?”
One of them snarled at me, “It’s Wales, dumbo!”
So I corrected myself, “Oh, right, so are you two whales from Ireland?”
That’s all I remembered when I woke up at the hospital yesterday.

Funny #2

A child asked his father, “How were people born?” So his father said, “Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on.” The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, “We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now.” The child ran back to his father and said, “You lied to me!” His father replied, “No, your mom was talking about her side of the family.”
 Funny #3
A west Texas redneck got a full scholarship to Texas A&M.  His first week there he went to an honors Physics class.  That day the class was discussing the properties of light.  The professor turned off the light in the room, took a flashlight out of his pocket, turned it on, and shined the light beam at the ceiling.  He asked the class, “What would happen if you climbed to the top of this light beam?”  The redneck raised his hand to answer.  His answer to the professor’s question was classic:  “Professor, we’re not stupid.  As soon as one of us climbed to the top of that light beam, you’d turn the flashlight off!”

 

“Political Truth” is a Myth

“I never had sexual relations with that woman,” said by then President Bill Clinton about his purported affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.  Of course evidence revealed that was “political truth” not actual truth.  Washington D.C. “truth” through the years has been re-defined so many times no one knows what to believe — about anything.  Remember all the angst pointed at George W. Bush about the Iraq invasion?  Remember that after the first Iraq war started the Left in D.C. went crazy about how Bush lied, how there was never any danger from Saddam Hussein, that there were no WMD (weapons of mass destruction) there?  Want to hear what all those same politicians who attacked Bush 43 had to say BEFORE (in most cases) he even took office?  Read these and laugh:

“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear.  We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”  President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology, which is a threat to countries in the region, and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”  Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, Dec. 16, 1998

“We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”  Oct. 9, 1998, letter to President Clinton signed by Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry and others.

“We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.  Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”  Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

“I will be voting to give the president the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”  Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., Oct. 9, 2002

Then there are the stories told by anti-Trump members of Congress who take every opportunity to take shots at the President in total disregard for REAL truth:
 ” Donald Trump’s claim to drain the swamp in D.C. is false.  In fact, if you add up the net wealth of his cabinet, it has more wealth than a third of the American people total — close to 100 million people.”  Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, March 27, 2017 .
Here’s the truth of the matter which totally debunks Senator Schumer’s claim:  “The bottom one-third of American households ranked by wealth own approximately nothing,” says Gabriel Zucman, an economist at the University of Berkeley.  That is because some either have a very low or even negative net wealth, due to high debt.  For that matter, it does not take a lot to “have more wealth than a third of the American people,” like Schumer claimed, Zuchman added.
“There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America’s elections…There is no evidence that has happened in the past, or that there are instances that that could happen this time.”
Former President Barack Obama, October, 2016.
The “then” President KNEW there was something going on with the Russians when he made this statement.  He was probably just running for cover, knowing full well what was coming after the election, no matter who won.  And we found out later HIS FBI had been investigating Russian election influence on his behalf already.  So why did he lie about it?

 

“Ninety percent of my emails as Secretary of State were, according to the State Department, ‘already in the system.'”  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Presidential Candidate when this statement was made in 2016.
“Climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism.” Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)

“Planned Parenthood is the health care backbone for American women during their lives.  In fact, it is the only health care that a significant number of women get.  About 30 percent of women, that’s their health care.” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)

Is that enough or should I continue?  There have been and are plenty of “Mythical Truths” coming out of Washington almost daily — from both sides of the aisle.  (And they wonder why the American public trust of Congress is pretty much lower than their trust for Vladimir Putin and the Ayatollah in Iran)  American political trust has gotten so bad I actually heard the old joke last week on a radio talk show — and not from a Republican:  “You know how to tell when a Congressman or Senator are lying?  Their lips are moving.”  Thomas Jefferson would rise from the dead if he knew just how untruthful our D.C. representatives are.
But here’s the rub for me:  they know they’re not telling the truth, yet they continue.  Their doing so literally is their showing American voters the middle finger.  And they do even that with total disdain for us!  Face it:  either they think we are all stupid, or they know we get their dishonesty and they do not care.  Either case is unacceptable.
What can we do?  This is where, how, and why they have won their “victory.”  The only way we can do what needs to happen — remove the majority of U.S. Representatives and Senators in one election — is for the majority of Americans to set aside partisanship, join with Americans from other political persuasions, and vote Washington out:  all of them.  That will not happen.  Unfortunately, we all saw the division in the Nation front and center in the elections in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, and most recently last November.  Americans cannot agree just as Congress cannot agree.  It’s pretty much left coast plus Illinois with east coast, all against middle America — almost an even split.  And as long as that holds, Congress will pretty much stay the same.  The House, Senate, and White House will slightly tilt one way and then the other from election to election, but I am saddened to say that at its core, American government is set.
In American history there have been just two things that seems successful at attracting the attention of a majority of American voters so as to unite them for a purely American ideal of sorts:  war and/or national travesty.  Think back through history and you’ll see:  American Revolution, Civil War, Assassination of Lincoln, War of 1812, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Assassination of JFK, Vietnam War, both Iraq wars,  9/11.  Americans rally when under siege. And during and after each of these, Americans rallied against an enemy.
Will it take something like this to happen to get us together again?  Are we headed toward a similar occurrence?  As for me, I desperately want Americans everywhere to awaken to the understanding of the slippery slope we are standing on and what looms ahead if we cannot recover footing sufficient to prevent a slide down that slope.  But with the wholesale corruption in immigration that has flooded the nation with illegals who (even though not legally registered) vote almost in a block for whatever political person or entity promotes open borders, the voting block for “all things liberal” may be insurmountable.  We may no longer have any real voice in the future of our nation.
I hate to say it, but War or another disaster may be our only chance.
God help America!

Roe v. Wade

Just the title grabs a lot of attention.  This is probably the most contentious political element in U.S. history.  Why?  Because it’s not just political — it’s social, religious, medical, AND political.  Any discussion today about abortion promises to always be contentious.  The only other topic that draws similar reaction has been the death penalty, and its attention is dwarfed by that of abortion.

I could spend much time to point out historical events and benchmarks in the life of abortion, but we have all heard every

argument from the Pro Life and Pro Choice sides so often we can regurgitate them without thinking.  Doing so has provided no answers, no relief for anyone caught up in the horrible situations that result in abortions, and certainly provided no answers to the only question that matters:  When does life begin?  If we knew beyond any doubt when life begins, we could make objective decisions based on facts rather than circumstantial emotions which continue to drive every aspect of the abortion culture.

And this is not just an American thing.  Abortions were part of life long before there even was a United States.  And though the calendar has been different, the nationalities have been different, the languages have been different, the circumstances around abortion have never changed no matter when or where they happen.  It always involves at least two people and the creation that is a result of what occurred between those two.  That part of the process never changes.

So what else is there to talk about that has not been hashed and re-hashed ad nauseum?   There is one important factor that has been left out of the conversation about abortion.  It is not a Pro Life or Pro Choice item.  It does not damn those who choose abortion as their option or those who choose pregnancy.  It is not about the vitriolic cries that often result in violence in the public square.

How many times have you faced circumstances that force you to make a choice?  And the choice is between two or more really important things to you, and your choice will make a major impact on your life and the lives of others.  You make that choice.  Things may work out OK after that choice.  But in time, you find yourself asking the question:  “What if?”  A high school athlete who is pretty good on the baseball or softball field, the basketball or tennis court, the football or soccer field, receives an offer of a college scholarship to take their proficiency in their sport to the next level.  They may choose to go, or they may choose no to.  The “what if” can (and will) happen with either choice.  If they choose to go play, at some point they will pause, thinking about what their life would be like if they had NOT gone to play ball in college and had pursued a law degree instead (or some other choice).  If they chose to pursue the law degree and rejected playing ball in college, they’ll eventually wonder what their life would have been had they chosen to play ball instead.  Maybe they passed on the NBA, Major League Baseball, the WNBA, or professional tennis.  Who knows?

Forget athletics.  Most people travel the road of looking for and (hopefully) finding a life partner — a soul mate.  In that process, most get involved in relationships with several different people.  Most eventually narrow that search to one and form a lifetime relationship.  Unless you are wired different than most, at some point  you will look back at your “young adult” relationships and wonder, “What if I had married Joe instead of Bill?  What would my life be like now?”

The answer to all these “what ifs” is the same:  we will never know for certain what life on a different path would have been.  But we will always wonder.  It stands to reason that “if” we had made different choices, circumstances would logically be different.  In most cases when confronted with making those choices, we have no idea what the life consequences of our choices will be.  We know there always WILL be consequences.  We simply hope those outcomes confirm we made the right choices.

In this conversation, there also is a “what if” that needs to be considered.  Science someday will almost certainly prove when life actually begins.  When that happens, scientific findings may make no difference to some.  But to others those findings will be devastating.  In this conversation, missing is the consideration of “what if” our World was totally without abortions.  What would life look like?  There would be millions of humans who would have lived normal lives and created generations of others.  There would be more physically and mentally handicapped people who would have via their handicaps at birth required mountainous amounts of money and time for their care that always come with emotional, physical, and mental challenges for their care givers.  The lives of those who would have interacted with them would have likely been different.

We had an unplanned and unexpected pregnancy in the 70’s when abortion was rampant.  And we gave serious thought to going that direction.  We were young and active, just out of college and just getting started.  We wanted children, but not right then.  We decided against termination.  Please indulge my “what if” for a moment:

“What If”‘ we had chosen abortion?   There would be 4 grandsons I would not know, one of which I watched as a junior in high school pitch in his team’s first district baseball game of the season last Saturday.  I would not be able to watch he and his next youngest brother play together on their high school football team that will be looking for their 15th State Championship in the Fall.  (They won their 14th State High School championship last year)  I would not know their 11 year old brother who is already becoming an accomplished pianist and song writer.  Nor would I know their “little” brother, who at 8 years old is the most active, most outgoing and happy young man I’ve ever known, and is already a phenomenal athlete.  I would have not known their Mom who is one of the most amazing women alive today.  She is brilliant, focused, hard working, hopelessly devoted to her family, and is the loving glue that holds our extended family together, plans every function and is an organizational and artistic genius.  One other “what if” is probably the most sobering:  we would be buried in the guilt of knowing we missed all of these people that would have been our descendants because we chose abortion.  My “what ifs” are a bit scary.  Think for a moment about yours.

To finish this conversation, here is the Roe v. Wade “what if” question for the ages:  what if we find out someday that life really DOES begins at conception?

 

 

When Did You First Realize You Are Stupid?

That’s a shocking question, no doubt — one which comes with no obvious answer.  That’s like asking your good friend in a crowd, “How long ago did you stop beating your wife?”  But, consider that there are those who THINK you are stupid, and me, and other Americans who live and work among us, are too.  The people who we elect and send to D.C. obviously think we’re stupid!

I don’t think every lawmaker feels that way.  But of late it certainly seems to be so.  For example:  how could anyone that is NOT stupid allow then House Speaker Pelosi to actually say this and get away with it without challenge:  (regarding the passage of Obamacare)  “We’ve got to pass this law so that we can know what’s in the law.”  Think about that.  As ridiculous as it sounds for someone who was so powerful in American government at the time to give even one thought to passing such a law without reading it herself — a law that when put into effect would control close to 20% of the nation’s economy — how much more ridiculous is it that Americans allowed this to happen?  If any husband or wife reading this was told something like that by a spouse before committing to giveaway 20% of their household income to someone else for an indefinite time period, their spouse would either have them committed or would commit homicide.  Yet we allowed an elected official to not only make this claim in which she admitted she had not read the law, we did nothing about it.  Are we stupid?

And then there’s this latest Healthcare debacle.  For 7 years GOP Establishment members have sworn to Americans that “if you give us control of the House, Senate, and the White House, the first thing we will do is repeal and replace Obamacare.”  Voters gave them control of the House, Senate and the White House.  In their amazing commitment to keep that promise to American voters, the GOP gave it their best shot, but sadly could not win over the Democrats or the White House, right?  No!  These same men and women that had 7 years to put a plan together to quickly follow through on the major promise they all used to get re-elected could not get it done.  And they before had NEVER counted on Democrat support for any repeal.  Why?  Because with control of both Houses and the White House they could do it alone.  But……they couldn’t agree with each other — Republicans could not agree.  Let me make this clear:  they passed an Obamacare repeal bill and sent it to the White House in 2015.  But Obama lived there and he wasn’t about to repeal his legacy legislation.  With  the addition of control of the White House all the GOP needed to do was re-run that same bill on which they had consensus since 2015 back through Congress, send it to President Trump, and implement the repeal.  But those same Republicans that used repeal/replace to get elected backed out of their commitments to Americans and failed to even get a vote for the new bill in the House!  Stupid?

What about replace?  House Conservatives had a bill prepared with broad support in the House and even among Senate Conservatives they were ready to implement immediately after repeal of Obamacare.  No repeal….no new bill…..no new Healthcare law to replace Obamacare.  And so far we have let these men and women get away with what they’ve done.  Are we stupid?!?!

Let me give you a little “new” Healthcare stupidity to ponder:  Members of Congress have good health insurance by any standard, but it’s not free and not reserved only for them – and it’s not government insurance. House and Senate members are allowed to purchase private health insurance offered through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), which covers more than 8 million other federal employees, retirees and their families.  According to the Congressional Research Service, the FEHBP offers about 300 different private health care plans, including five government-wide, fee-for-service plans and many regional health maintenance organization (HMO) plans, plus high-deductible, tax-advantaged plans. All plans cover hospital, surgical and physician services, and mental health services, prescription drugs and “catastrophic” coverage against very large medical expenses. There are no waiting periods for coverage when new employees are hired, and there are no exclusions for preexisting conditions. The FEHBP negotiates contracts annually with all insurance companies who wish to participate. There is plenty of competition for the business; FEHBP is the largest employer-sponsored health plan in the U.S.

These folks work for you.  I am glad they have such good health insurance they obtain from their employer — YOU — and that it takes care of the employee and all family members, includes coverage of pre-existing conditions, catastrophic coverage, and have no waiting periods.  The FEHBP has been praised by many as the best health insurance opportunity in the nation.  It qualifies under the ACA — Obamacare.

Imagine this:  Do you understand that with this program available for working men and women with their families on top of the already covered 8 million federal employees, leaving Medicare for seniors alone, block granting Medicaid funds to the states with the mandate that Medicaid benefits to the poor would be “means tested,” meaning based on income individuals would be covered if they could not afford the FEHBP insurance, leave Tricare in place for military and veterans, everyone in the U.S. would have health insurance!  And this program has been successfully in place for several years.  Insurance companies love it, and insurance companies fight to write these policies!

How stupid is Congress?  Instead of going through all of the headaches, time, and expense of re-writing a healthcare bill, why not just tweak the FEHBP, make it available to all outside of Medicare and Medicaid, and have every one in the nation covered without having to spend billions of dollars needlessly just so the government itself can say “we control healthcare for everyone in the United States?”  How stupid or WE?!?

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  If it’s broke, fix it.  If there’s something that almost fixes it and something else that will help fix it, put them together and fix it.”  Sounds like if we grab a piece of FEHBP, grab a piece of Medicare, grab a piece of Medicaid, leave Tricare alone for the military, we could have one very effective and affordable health insurance program.  If we don’t try that route, I gotta say I’m pretty certain we’re stupid.

 

Next is not Always Best

Larry Ryan hosted the number one Top 40 Radio show in the nation during the 60’s at KEEL Radio in Shreveport, Louisiana.  He pretty much invented one of the first “real” morning radio shows with sidekick personalities that were all larger than life as was he.  In the early 70’s he decided to take his success to a different radio opportunity and bought a station of his own.  His departure from KEEL was devastating — not only to the local radio market but to his radio station.  How do you replace an on air superstar?

Larry Ryan

That task fell to Billy Wilson — one of (if not the) smartest businessman I have ever known and who I later worked for.  Billy decided to bring in a replacement for Larry who I to this day do not remember nor what radio station in what city he came to KEEL from.  He lasted on air for about a month and was fired.  He was replaced by a guy named Jeff Edmond who virtually picked up where Larry Ryan left off and dominated morning radio ratings in Shreveport for a decade.  Most in the radio world thought Billy Wilson had made a horrible decision with Larry’s replacement and got lucky bringing Edmond to KEEL.  It was not until a decade after this I learned what happened had been carefully orchestrated and implemented by Billy Wilson.

Wilson hired me to do mornings at KVKI — the 100,000 watt Adult Contemporary station in Shreveport in direct competition to Jeff Edmond.  (Wilson had left KEEL to join the FM station)  During that time he told me the story of how the KEEL/Larry Ryan/Jeff Edmond morning show saga had played out.  “Anytime in any business or high profile entity of any kind the high profile person or program leaves or goes away,” he said, “the next person or program that replaces the high profile one almost always fails.”  Wilson was speaking of Larry Ryan leaving and being replaced.  He continued, “I had searched for someone to pick up right where Larry left off.  In that search I found Jeff Edmond and really wanted him to do the morning show at KEEL.  But I knew that the market would not accept anyone who replaced Larry.  If Edmond replaced Larry, Edmond would fail.  So I waited to bring Jeff in.”  Wilson told me he hired the guy he brought in because he was the cheapest hire available, knowing all the time the guy would fail.  And he did.  After a month or two, Billy hired Jeff Edmond who was a miracle replacement — NOT for Larry Ryan — the other guy had been compared to Larry Ryan.  Jeff Edmond was compared to the “other guy,” and Jeff was WAY better than that guy.

The genius of that logic stuck with me.  And I think I saw it repeated last week in Washington D.C.  How?  I think President Trump, when he got hands-on involved in the repeal/replace Obamacare process expected for (and maybe even planned for) the replacement plan to fail.  The “big program” that was to be replaced?  Obamacare.  The business guru Donald Trump apparently knew that whatever program that was implemented to replace Obamacare — which was the program that had devoured 20% of the U.S. economy — would fail dramatically.  I think not only did the President think this, I thought he already had in his mind what he wants as a replacement program for Obamacare, and because it was not the first program devised to be the replacement, will when implemented be successful because it will be compared to the Obamacare replacement and not to just Obamacare.

How will this play out?  If my guess is true, don’t be surprised if some time in the next few months we hear there’s a new health plan under construction.  My guess is this time, President Trump will be taking lead on the program instead of House Speaker Paul Ryan.  And I’m pretty sure there will be Democrat involvement.  Why Democrats?  At some point in the next four years it is inevitable that the vitriolic atmosphere that has poisoned D.C. under Obama leadership must be rejected and replaced once again with the process of diversity of thought and ideals in policy making that is inclusive.  Even though the GOP controls both Houses of Congress and the White House and has the ability to dominate the legislative process, those in this Administration understand this is not a “one and done” time in American history.  We need to become “one Nation” again, and get to work working together again to “Make America Great Again” and keep that process going forward.

Please do not think there will be any selling out under President Trump.  Don’t be deceived.  Yes, you may not know what he has in his hand at any time, but when you see what it is in his hand do not panic.  Know that in most circumstances he has something in his OTHER hand for America — the hand behind his back that you cannot see at first.

What makes me think this whole analogy and process is accurate?  I read THE ART OF THE DEAL!  Make no mistake:  this President is a deal maker.  And now he’s making deals not for Donald J. Trump.  He’s making deals for the United States of American and Americans.

European Illegal Immigration: “Coming to Amerika”

The establishment media is largely ignoring ethnic violence as illegal immigrants stream into Europe.  The following from Kurt Nimmo of Infowars.com

“The latest incident occurred in a Danish refugee center near Copenhagen where a “a stateless Palestinian” in a refugee center stabbed a police officer.  Groups of migrants are engaging in gang-like violent behavior across Europe and as hundreds of thousands of primarily Sunni Muslim migrants flood into the continent.  On Sunday in a tent city in the town of Kassel-Calden, north of Frankfurt, Germany, groups of Pakistani and Albanian migrants attacked each other.  “Between 60 and 70 people were involved. They attacked each other with clubs and threw things at each other,” a police spokesman reported, according to the INDEPENDENT.  On Friday at an asylum center near Leipzig 200 Syrian and Afghan migrants attacked each other with table legs, bed frames and sticks following an argument over the use of a bathroom.

“The police have reached the absolute limit of what they can take,” said Jörg Radek, the deputy head of the German police trade union. “ We must do everything we can to prevent further outbreaks of violence.”  He called for segregating migrants along religious and ethnic lines.  A policy of segregation was implemented in the German state of Thuringia after Christian migrants in asylum centers were attacked by Sunnis attempting to impose Sharia law.

Max Klingberg of the International Society for Human Rights said a large number of migrants arriving in Germany are radical Islamists.  “Among the new arrivals is not a small amount of religious intensity, it is at least at the level of the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.  Another German police union official, Rainer Wendt, said violence between groups of illegal migrants in German hostels is a common occurrence.  “We‘ve been seeing this violence for weeks and even months,” Wendt explained. “Groups join forces based on ethnicity, religion or clan structures and attack each other with knives and even weapons they have made themselves.”  He said “Sunnis fight Shiites, there are Salafists of varying kinds… Women are being forced to wear veils. Men are forced to pray. Islamists want to impose their values.”

Earlier this month German police in the town of Hemer reported that an Alerian Muslim had attacked an Eritrean Christian and his pregnant wife with a bottle. The pregnant woman was hospitalized. The man was wearing a crucifix.  In a refugee area in Suhl, Germany, an Afghan man who had torn pages from a Koran was attacked by a Syrian mob. In the resulting riot, 17 people where injured, including six police officer and members of the press. The enraged mob ransacked the refugee center office and, the following day, smashed car windows and vandalized property.

On the Greek Island of Lesbos in early September, a group of around 200 illegal immigrants attacked police and threw stones after they were not allowed to board a ferry to the mainland.  On September 16, Hungarian riot police resorted to tear gas and water cannon as 1,500 rioting Muslims chanting “Allah hu Akbar” on the border. The rioting Muslims, who received instructions from a megaphone wielding leader, threw stones, bottles and food at the police. SKY NEWS reported around 70 percent of the illegal migrants on the border were men.

In August French riot police battled illegal immigrants in Calais as they stormed the Channel Tunnel leading to Britain. John Keefe, the Eurotunnel public affairs director, said Coquelles terminal was being targeted by “organized groups” of illegal migrants on a nightly basis, according to THE DAILY MAIL.  In addition to violence between religious and ethnic gangs and attacks on police, the media and citizens, there is a rape epidemic in migrant camps, but “police are refusing to go public about crimes involving refugees and migrants because they do not want to give legitimacy to critics of mass migration,” according to Soeren Kern of the Galestone Institute.  Social workers and women’s groups in Giessen, a university town in Germany, wrote a letter to the local state parliament saying rape, forced prostitution and child abuse are common in a refugee camp there.  “Many women have felt the need to sleep in their clothes… they won’t go to the toilet at night because rapes and assaults have taken place on their way to, or from, there. Even in daylight, a walk through the camp is fraught with fear,” the letter states .

The situation is similar at a former U.S. military case in Bayernkaserne, outside of Munich. Women’s groups say there are allegations of rape and forced prostitution every day. A social worker said the camp there is “the biggest brothel in the city” and sex with a female migrant costs 10 euros.  The possibility of rape at the hands of roving Muslim gangs in Bavaria is so great the headmaster of a grammar school in Pocking informed parents not to allow their daughters to wear revealing clothes and avoid “misunderstandings” with Muslim males, said to be 80 percent of the migrants arriving in Germany.”

This is NOT strange, unusual, or unreal.  It is reality, and is really happening in Europe.  Why haven’t YOU heard about it?  The “World” media doesn’t want you to know how real it is.  Remember last month when Donald Trump stated how immigrants were destroying laws of every kind in Sweden and the Swedish government launched an immediate attack against the President’s statements?  Remember that 48 hours later there was a massive illegal immigrant attack in Sweden?  Remember that Swedish government statistics elaborate on the huge rise in violent crimes since the illegal population has mushroomed?  IT IS REAL….and it’s headed here — no doubt about it.

Our Media is totally all in with the Globalist agenda.  They believe in and are sold out to promoting and maintaining the mantra of Globalists:  that all humans are citizens of one entity — The World.  And Globalism is the only real and acceptable political and social system….period.  All others are fake, temporary, and evil.

I am not a conspiracy theorist at all.  In fact I feel I can detect deceit and untruths as good as the next guy.  But I have been in Europe in the last year a couple of times — Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, and Great Britain.  I posted on Facebook pictures of the immigration camps in Zurich, Switzerland.

I don’t have one infinitesimal of understanding of any people or government wanting to allow the generation in their free country of a social subset of totalitarianism.  Certainly among north Africans and Middle Easterners there are unmentionable horrors and travesties of the most vile kind.  But among those very people are hidden those who are part of that mindset whose highest calling is to infiltrate Western culture and implant that thinking among Western people, killing all who resist.

There is a simple way to take care of their horrors on their on home soil or that of countries close by.  The U.S. and Europe are spending billions in transportation, humanitarian aid, food, shelter, medical care, etc., of these people and none of these countries have the infrastructure capability to do so.  Did you know there IS that capability right in the Middle East?

Below see an entire self-contained, fully stocked 1 million strong “city” built in Saudi Arabia that is EMPTY!  It was designed to accommodate displaced immigrants from other countries in the Middle East displaced by civil war.  It has everything necessary for anyone to live and live comfortably.  Wouldn’t Europe and the West be better off (heck, wouldn’t immigrants be better off) remaining in their part of the World among fellow citizens who speak the same language, are of the same religion and social thinking and culture?  Hundreds and thousands of Westerners would not have been victimized by ANY crimes committed by Middle Eastern illegals if this had been implemented.

Immigrant totally self sustaining complex built in Saudi Arabia to house comfortably 1 million + displaced Middle Eastern immigrants. It’s empty!

I’m not for turning our backs on immigrants.  The U.S. accepts more immigrants annually than every other country on Earth…..COMBINED!  But we better get it right…and legal…..and quickly.  Our infrastructure and social environment are eroding very quickly.  We’re sliding downhill into anarchy and globalism at more than 100 miles per hour.

Proof of Illegal Surveillance of President Trump and others

The following is a letter addressed to Devin Nunes, Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives dated March 21, 2017, from Larry Klayman, Chairman and General Counsel of Freedom Watch, Inc.  The content of the letter needs no explanation.

THE LETTER:

170321-Final Whistleblower Letter

I guess I don’t need to go into great detail about what is at stake here.  I doubt very seriously that anyone would “gin up” lies like this while offering so much tangible evidence to back up these allegations.  Mr. Nunes in his press briefing from the White House the other day when he spoke of what he has seen in a very general way referred to “intelligence sources” and asking for those with information about any of the surveillance and intelligence communications coming forward, he was referring to “whisleblowers.”  I assume that the whistleblower’s information to which Congressman Nunes must have been referring to his seeing was that of Mr. Dennis Montgomery, the subject of this letter.

I was flabbergasted when I read this.  Either there are a group of “fruits and nuts” working at Freedom Watch who do nothing but create political conspiracy theories or they have through thorough investigative work uncovered what will be (if found to be true) a government scandal that dwarfs Watergate and will implicate dozens if not hundreds of current politicians, political appointees, and other federal employees in massive felonious activities.

I would love to read your thoughts in responses below.

Stay tuned….this looks like it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

P.S.

At the bottom of the letter you’ll see the article in NEWSMAX about this.  Several other minor news outlets have picked it up and run with it.  (Google it…you’ll see several)  Why haven’t any of the BIG news outlets run with it?  Hmmm……..

Illegals

This just has to stop.  Americans are much smarter than to allow the continual lawbreaking that has ramped up in our nation and continues to grow.  No, it is not just from illegals.  But every crime committed by an illegal is a crime that would NOT have been committed if that illegal was not here.  For example:  Kate Steinle would be alive today if the illegal who had been deported 5 times and allowed sanctuary in San Francisco had simply been turned over to ICE by SFPD instead of being set free.  He shot and killed Kate with no purpose.  The odds are more likely that Kate would have won the lottery, been bitten by a shark, and struck by lightning, all on the same day than she would have been murdered IF that illegal had been processed according to the law.  The 14 year old girl in Rockville, Maryland’s life was forever changed when two illegal young men brutally raped her in their high school restroom.  Neither boy was to be in the United States.  Yet they were there and did rape her.

Before you throw rocks at your computer screen reading this, I know there are many hard working, wonderful and kind illegals living, working, paying taxes, giving back to their communities throughout our country.  But there are many who are not.  Quite honestly, to most Americans it matters not if they are good illegals or bad illegals…..they’re ILLEGALS!  Americans have allowed a new culture of ignoring “special” laws.   This culture not only allows certain lawbreakers the permission to break laws, they embrace those people.  Not only do they embrace the lawbreakers, they (as “Politically Correct” individuals so often do) rail against any and all who oppose this new culture and those who demand laws be enforced.  All across America we see week in and week out demonstrations by those who want  illegals legitimized and given if not full citizenship a complete pass for what they’ve done and an open door to every benefit of U.S. citizenship.  And these demonstrations are not just demonstrations — many end in violence with property and personal damages and injuries common.

Is our nation really a “Nation of Laws” or is it a “Nation of Political Correctness?”  Our previous president instructed his Justice Department to NOT enforce federal drug laws, to NOT deport illegals at the border.  He allowed the Internal Revenue Service to illegally target not-for-profit entities to keep or delay their legal formations IF they did not align with his particular political ideals.  And many people in the U.S. government, the U.S. Congress, and the United States not only agreed with him, gave free passes to all those who under his ideals broke the law.

Our children and grandchildren are in danger — danger from open borders, lawbreakers in every area of American life, lawmakers who ignore the will of the People and initiate and perpetuate the legislation of personal and governmental agenda that suits the feeding of the D.C. Monster that is meticulously devouring our freedoms and liberties.  Graft and corruption are destroying the center of American democracy.  It’s no longer just about money.  It’s about power.  With power, politicians understand they control EVERYTHING — not just money.  And “Quid Pro Quo” has become the mantra of liberalism.  It’s stealthily taken control of public education, the financial institutions of America, Wall Street, state and local government, and even churches.

How is this possible?  It all grows from an attitude of entitlement, pride, and greed.  Entitlement is driving the ship:  “somebody owes me something.”  Our parents, grandparents, and their parents all from birth respected their origins, their families and opportunities, but most of all honored their nation and all those who have made historical sacrifices to establish, protect, and maintain the personal freedoms and liberties upon which their nation was established.  Blood has always been the glue that holds America together.  And those past generations understood the principle of “freedom is not free,” and gave their time, their respect, and many their blood for America.

That principle has almost faded away.  Our generation is consumed with political correctness that is driven by entitlement.  Most today respect only those who laugh at sacrifice for the cause of liberty, and scream at anyone who expects any work for pay, benefits, and opportunity.  Why?  Because “somebody owes me something.”  The generation that said “anything worth having is worth working for” is growing old and dying away.  It is being replaced by a generation mixed with mostly entitlement minded people whose philosophy is “if I want it I should have it just because I want it.”  Working for something is no more.  Building relationships, honor of country and others, respect for leaders and neighbors, the law and law enforcement, are all not only hated, they are almost gone.

So in this environment, anything goes.  There are no rules today save one:  there are no rules.  If it feels good, do it.  If you want it, take it.  If you don’t like it, ignore it.  We are daily growing to look just like European countries who have over the last 30 years not only allowed this mindset into their cultures, they have embraced it.  And Europe is imploding — as will the U.S.

Our government allowing illegals in with no or very few restrictions is NOT our problem.  It is just one symptom of the disease I described above.  Treating the symptom while stopping the symptom does not stop the disease.  That often requires surgery.  In our case, that’s a tall order, but surgery can still be done.  Shining the light of truth on the massive corruption in D.C. is a good thing, but it’s just a start.  The seed of that corruption must be surgically removed before real change can begin.  Like him or not, Donald Trump has taken his election as the mandate from a strong segment of the American people who have seen this travesty and are willing to fight to rid the nation of this disease of entitlement — no matter the cost.  No man can do it alone.  It takes a lot of people to change a nation.

Our problem with illegals comes from not honoring laws.  Not honoring laws comes from a disdain for the law.  Disdain for the law comes from a culture of disrespect for the country, leaders, and a hatred of accountability.  Hatred of accountability comes from an attitude of entitlement.  The attitude of entitlement comes from Pride.  Do you believe the Bible?  If so, you know the first sin was not Adam and Eve’s.   It was Lucifer’s pride.  He was one of three Archangels in Heaven and was said to be the most beautiful.  He thought he was on the same level as God and expected to be elevated to that level.  He led a revolution among the angels.  They were cast out of Heaven for eternity.  A lot of problems there, but they all came from Pride.

Regarding immigration:  getting it straight won’t be easy and it won’t fix the problem.  But it’d be a start.  The U.S. has a good legal immigration system that has served millions for two centuries.  Does it have issues?  Certainly.  Can they be fixed?  Certainly.  That would require work, respect for others, agreement, negotiations, self sacrifice — all things that don’t work well in an environment of entitlement.  Let’s hope we can get started soon, before it’s too late.  We don’t need anymore lawbreakers — either from abroad or native born.  We need to once again be “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”  “All” begins at home, in (one again) a “Nation of Laws.”

Funny of the Week

“MAN! I just left the Valero up the street from my place.  I went inside the store to pay for my gas and saw two police officers looking at a lady smoking while pumping gas.  I thought  ‘she can’t be serious smoking at the pump.’   And the police right there too!  While paying for my gas, I heard someone screaming.  I looked outside and the lady’s arm was on fire!  She was tossing and waving her arm around,  just going crazy!  I walked outside while the cops were putting her on the ground.  They were putting the fire out with an extinguisher.  As I walked past I turned to see them handcuffing her.  WOW!  I am a concerned citizen so I asked the cops why they arresting her.   I thought that her arm catching on fire was enough.  Nope!  One cop looked me dead in the face and said “FOR WAVING A FIRE ARM.”
