How Broken Is It?

“Why reward bad behavior?” Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)  said. “It’s a colossal waste of everybody’s time,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.).

These comments were made by Senators in the debate regarding the House approved budget deal that — once again — HAD to be passed to prevent another government shutdown. One would think these two Republican Senators were referencing all the senseless pork and unnecessary elements included in the bill under consideration. After all, this $500 Billion new law will increase the budget deficit by that exact amount. In other words, the U.S. will be forced to borrow every penny of that which means another half Trillion of debt piled on the already 20 Trillion we owe.

But no, these two GOP leaders were NOT griping about the huge spending in the budget deal. They were attacking Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who demanded time on the floor to actually discuss the potentially disastrous deficit spending bill that Republicans promised Americans they would NOT do IF Americans in the 2016 election gave the GOP the White House, the House of Representatives, AND the Senate. The American voters did just that. And members of Congress — at least the majority of the House and the majority of the Senate who are Republicans — caved and once again went back on their promise to Americans.

Paul simply wanted to take time to discuss the bill and debate amendments necessary to edit this financial monstrosity under consideration at the time that is now law. Senators Cornyn and Thune were complaining about the time such discussions would waste. NO amendments were debated because none were allowed. After all, it is not acceptable for Americans to expect the well paid Congressionals who are supposed to vote the way their constituents voted in the past election. And those constituents were promised that Republicans — including Thune and Cornyn — were committed to reduce government spending and reverse the cycle of deficit spending that Democrats have consistently pushed on Americans over the last 8 years. Apparently Thune, Cornyn, and a majority of other Republicans feel their obligations to voting constituents does not include doing what they promised during their campaigns. Remember “Send us back to Washington and we’ll repeal Obamacare and slash the budget deficit?” Nothing but lip service.

What’s Next?

The debt limit and DACA — two ADDITIONAL hot topics from the 2016 campaign that carry with them promises given by campaigners that “should” bring the results of fulfilling those promises. Sadly, I doubt that is going to happen.

The debt limit certainly must be raised in a few weeks, regardless of what doing so will do to our children, grandchildren, and their children. Do not be fooled for a moment thinking that $20 Trillion is all the U.S. owes. Congressional members do not discuss their “unfunded” liabilities that total an additional $100 to $200 Trillion dollars. Those include Social Security, Medicare, federal government pensions, and pensions that the federal government “agreed” to guarantee — primarily those of members of “chosen” labor unions. Even though Americans for decades watch as billions of dollars are deducted from paychecks, and even thought those deductions that are earmarked for deposit in a trust fund to hold along with employer matching contributions, Congress decades ago began robbing that trust fund, to borrow those dollars to use for pet project spending. They simply pay those obligations when they come due by borrowing more money. Is that not the most egregious  thing you have ever heard? “Oh, we’ll just apply for and get another credit card and use the new credit card to pay what’s due on this old card.”

I don’t want to scare you, but there is not $200 Trillion dollars in circulation in total on the planet Earth!

What Then?

Sadly for our children and grandchildren there is little good that can happen from this practice. America can keep borrowing money from the Chinese for only so long. When China calls the loans due, America has no way of paying. “What can those we owe do to us?” There is some difference in this situation than a normal similar situation in everyday America. When one defaults on a loan on a car or a mortgage, the bank just seizes the car or the house, sells it, and uses the sale proceeds to payoff the loan. China could indeed declare us in default and make demand for the money, or they could seize the asset pledged to get that loan. But what asset does the U.S. put up for collateral for all those Treasury Notes we give to the Chinese as collateral? The only “there” there to protect the Chinese is the good faith and trust of the United States of America. And how good is that as collateral today?

Until Richard Nixon took the nation off the gold and silver backed currency system, U.S. creditors had something tangible that could be used as REAL collateral for our loans. When that happened, the U.S. dollar became a “fiat currency” — a currency like almost every country in the World that relies on the broad and often non-existent assets that country possesses. Imagine a scenario in which every dollar bill you hold has a dollar worth of gold or silver sitting in a federal vault at Fort Knox. Wouldn’t that make you feel better about that $20 Trillion in debt we now owe along with those unfunded liabilities? But now when the nation runs out of money, someone simply fires up the printing press, prints more dollars and Treasury Notes, sells them for real money, and goes further and further in debt.

But who pays those debts? American citizens, that’s who. It certainly is not our government. The only money it has is the money we pay in taxes. And of course you know we NEVER pay enough in taxes for the government’s needs — or so we are told. That’s how “deficit spending” happens. When the government needs $100 for Social Security, Medicare, foreign aid, rent, or anything at all, there’s not enough on deposit to pay it all. So they simply “create” more money and stick the American taxpayers with the obligation to repay it.

Meanwhile, Congress just spent another $500 billion that we do not have and will not have. They justified it by stating “The military is broke, we need to give more money to under privileged people, (even to illegals who are not supposed to be here in the first place) Congressional and federal employee pay raises, food stamps, and other social programs, so we must borrow that amount of money.”

Summary

Is there a way out of all this? Nope. The only way that would/could ever happen is if Congress would stop spending money it does not have — PERIOD! Though thousands of legislators have been elected through the years to do just that, once they get to Washington they cave to the political greed, corruption, and power and simply fall in line. Just like immigrants mean nothing more to Democrats than their votes, these “virgin” legislators are nothing more than a vote to be counted on by the Establishment D.C. swamp creatures. And when it is time to take a vote on spending money — even when everyone knows there is no money in the  bank for the government to spend — all the Establishment House and Senate members pressure all those “virgins” necessary to get enough votes.

I’ll make one of my famous projections here in closing: IF Congress does not immediately develop a process to begin cutting actual government spending and continue with such a process, within 5 years the American economy will crash. Imagine a scenario in which there is no food, no medicine, no transportation, no schools, no utilities at all — all because we have no money, no credit, no ability to make money or pay any person or entity to provide any of these services that we have taken for granted for so long.

It’s happening today! THEY CANNOT EVEN GET TOILET PAPER TODAY IN VENEZUELA! Everything I stated in the sentence above is happening right now in Venezuela, even though their country is rich with oil. There is NO way to get oil out of the ground, processed, and to the marketplace.

5 years is our “grace period.” The rapidly growing giant in the East is gobbling up all that it can to become Earth’s lone Superpower: China. They have already successfully postured their economic structure — both internally and internationally — to be able to quickly un-tether themselves from any goods and services dependency on the U.S. Yes it is true that there is virtually no Middle Class in China and that the Communist Party still controls life there. But those at the top of the heap understand what it is to make the hard decisions necessary to survive. America’s leadership of 535 individuals cannot wait every week to leave their place of work — the Capitol — to take another taxpayer paid vacation.

Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Congress took vacation while America drowned in debt Congress initiated.

Rand Paul got it right: “As an expected vote approached in the Senate to pass the bill with a $500 Billion pricetag, Rand Paul began to throw up roadblocks, demanding a vote on his amendment that would demonstrate how the two-year budget deal breaks past pledges to rein in federal spending. GOP leaders refused to allow him to offer the amendment, arguing that if Paul got an amendment vote, many other senators might want one, too. Paul, in turn, refused to allow the vote to go forward, making use of Senate rules that allow individual senators to slow down proceedings that require the consent of all.

‘I can’t in all good honesty, in all good faith, just look the other way because my party is now complicit in the deficits,’ Paul said on the Senate floor as evening pushed into night. Paul objected after a visibly irritated McConnell tried to move to a vote. Then Paul launched into a lengthy floor speech deriding bipartisan complicity on deficit spending while the country goes ‘on and on and on, finding new wars to fight that make no sense.'”

This may be the Armageddon Nancy Pelosi warned us to watch out for.

And this one ain’t the Democrats’ fault.

Mirror Bubbles

Jennifer Garner in the movie Draft Day in which she played the role of player salary cap lawyer for the Cleveland Browns said this when the Browns head coach showed her his SuperBowl ring: “I am shocked that in the most macho sport in World history the greatest achievement is a piece of jewelry.” There is just something about shiny, glittery things that pretty much all humans are attracted to — like mirrors.

I am consistently astonished when I see or hear Hollywood elitists or politicians publicly denigrate the President, Republicans in Congress, and all those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016. The lies and misrepresentations are not only lies, most are inconceivable. I am miffed that anyone would believe what they state because in almost every case ANYONE can do a quick search to verify validity of their allegations. Sadly, they simply do not do that. Why do you think that is?

In my finite mind I have finally discovered the answer — I think. Not only do they each live in a bubble, they apparently share bubbles with other elitists. Further, the bubbles are made of mirrors! That explains how they are capable of only talking about what they see for themselves while maintaining any other view — other than that from their bubble — is a wrong, incorrect or absurd view.

What does one who lives in a mirror bubble see? They only see themselves. Humans all draw conclusions almost exclusively from what things are seen and heard. When one looks into a mirror all that is seen is who is looking in the mirror. My “theory” explains how these could happen:

Jimmy Kimmel

“I want to speak to those of you who voted for Donald Trump. And first of all, I want to say I get it. I actually do. You’re unhappy with the way things were going. You wanted someone to come in and shake things up. You didn’t want business as usual. Nothing ever seems to get done. It’s always the same. These candidates make a lot of promises that go nowhere. It happens over and over again. And you’re sick of it. Everyone said he wouldn’t (win). But he did. And it’s exciting because this is your guy. You picked a horse like 35-1 and somehow it paid off. He calls the Prime Minister of Australia and hangs up on him. He won’t shake Angela Merkel’s hand. He doesn’t know Frederick Douglass isn’t alive. He claims he can’t release his tax returns because they’re under audit, then says he’s not going to release them at all. He screws up royally every day. Sometimes two or three times a day. We can’t keep up with it. Things come out of nowhere. Every day there’s something nuts. But you’ve been trying to ignore it because you don’t want to admit to these smug, annoying liberals that they were right. That’s the last thing you want to do. It’s time, for especially you who voted for him, to tell him to go. Please. Think about it. He doesn’t even want to be president. He’s miserable. But he won’t resign because his ego is too big. He can’t do it.”

Shepard Smith (Fox News)

Even Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is criticizing President’s Trump’s treatment of CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a freewheeling news conference and for Trump’s refusal to answer questions about his campaign’s ties to Russia. “It’s crazy what we’re watching every day,” Smith said after Trump’s news conference. “It’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really? Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening and we’re fools for asking the questions? No sir.”

“We have a right to know,” Smith added. “You call us fake news and put us down like children for asking questions on behalf of the American people.”

Actor Mark Ruffalo

“We’re going to set our sights to continue that work in the next year, and strengthen our bonds and commitments to each other, for long after the Trump era comes to its rightful end,” said Ruffalo. “We ain’t stopping with Trump, OK?”

Filmmaker Michael Moore

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore said his 2018 to-do list includes the “widespread massive removal of Republicans from the House and Senate the likes of which this country has never seen.” Moore said removing Trump, Pence and “the whole disgusting lot of them” isn’t enough. “We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place,” he said adding “We must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege.”

Actress Cynthia Nixon

“Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon called 2017 a “dark year for America” and said Russian interference was to blame for “shifting the election” to Trump. “First and foremost, we need to make sure that Robert Mueller is able to conduct a thorough and unimpeded investigation,” Nixon said.

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ)

“Trump’s attacks on journalists and those who would hold him accountable are eroding trust in our vital institutions and conditioning the public to no longer trust them,” Flake said. “The destructive effect of this kind of behavior on our democracy cannot be overstated.”

Former ESPN Host Jemelle Hill

In an interview with former NFL running back Arian Foster on Wednesday, the ESPN personality said her tweet stating the president is “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists” was already widely known. Hill doubled down on her claims that Trump is a white supremacist and has since been terminated by ESPN.

Thoughts?

Here are mine:

  1. “Just because a person believes something is true doe not make it true;”
  2. “Just because a person believes something is false does not make it false;”
  3. The perpetuated narrative of Trump racism is totally false. There is NO evidence in the life of the President (that has been lived out in the public like few others’ lives have been) in his personal OR business dealings with millions of people of ANY incident of racism. In fact, the exact opposite is true. MANY current and former employees, friends, relatives, and associates have stepped forward with a myriad of examples of the exact opposite actions of the President, yet Trump’s NON-racist treatment of others through decades is NOT an easy story to sell to the rabid anti-Trumpsters, so the Leftists ignore the truth and go back to their bubbles. (read numbers 1 and 2 again)
  4. There IS massive proof of an ongoing pursuit of a unified narrative by the Left — Mainstream Media, Democrats, and Establishment Republicans — to hatch and promote as part of the anti-Trump movement the “Russia, Russia, Russia” collusion conspiracy. But even after more than a year in the middle of this, the most sophisticated intelligence community in World history under the minute inspections of mostly Trump haters, not a single shred of evidence of Trump/Russian collusion has been unearthed. (And collusion — even if it even existed — is not illegal)

So what can average Americans do to get the truth, apply to our lives with simple logic, and make informed decisions about the major issues in our lives?

Wow, that’s a BIG one!

First, we need to force EVERYBODY on the Left and on the Right to give us the truth — non-filtered, raw and unedited intelligence — and let us without THEIR spin identify the real truth.

If the majority of Americans will sign-on for this, they will all get the message. The truth is an absolute! I am very confident that the majority of Americans when presented with unfiltered facts can make the right decisions for their lives.

An Illustration of “Real” Russian Collusion: and It Is NOT Trump Collusion

Both of the following stories below broke yesterday (February 8, 2018)

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration. The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff. In the statement Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative.” “The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

Wait: that’s not all — there’s MORE!

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee has publicly committed the Russian investigation of collusion would be “fair, impartial, bi-partisan and fair.” February 8 confidential texts were uncovered between Senator Warner and a lobbyist who represents a Russian Oligarch who has been black-balled by the State Department because of his ties to Russian terrorists. In those texts, Senator Warner was striving to obtain direct and secret access to the former British and author of the Steele Dossier. In Warner’s texts he suggested the lobbyist and Warner speak confidentially without leaving a paper trail documenting their contact.

Summary

“People who live in glass houses (mirrors) should not throw rocks.” These Leftists quoted above, the Clintons, the Obamas, Democratic leaders and members of the Mainstream Media ALL seem to live in mirror bubbles. All they see is themselves every way they look. They have invited select individuals to join them in their bubbles so they can share the same view. That view has little to do with anyone or any issue that exists outside of that bubble.

That’s why there is SO much hypocrisy on the Left! They actually believe what they say regardless of any truths beyond their visible “realities.”

It is really refreshing to watch as more Americans awaken every day to the realities of being fooled for so long. Americans are awakening to the realities that this sometimes abrasive, loud, boisterous President who blasts the Twitter world all day every day is right more than he is wrong. (He is eerily accurate in his predictions so far in this presidency, too)

I suggest Americans step back from the wave of emotion that the Left has been using to capture and confuse. Americans are pretty sharp and certainly have the ability to grasp truths, even in all the “mirror bubble” rhetoric.

Certainly the news — the REAL news — is not all out yet. Tomorrow is a new day. There certainly will be new news of both kinds: that from REAL news sources and that from the Mirror Bubbles.

You know the difference.

 

It’s Time….

I’ve had enough: it is time to stop all the political posturing, name calling, the “he said, she said,” the blame game, and get down to business.

One memo has been released, a heavily redacted criminal referral has been released, and another memo is about to be released. All of this leaking and blaming has gone far enough. Let’s just step into the ring and let the parties involved in this be forced to duke it out. How?

James Comey

How can one man dodge so many “justice bullets?” James Comey has lied out the wazoo — and so far is unscathed. In his lies he is guilty of obstruction of justice in multiple incidents and is spitting almost daily in the faces of the American people with his smug tweets. The most obvious of his acts of obstruction is his approval and filing of the initial FISA warrant application using the Steele Dossier as partial basis for the application. Then he presented the dossier to Donald Trump saying that he could put no stock in the dossier’s viability or accuracy. That is simply Obstruction of Justice.

Rod Rosenstein

The Deputy Attorney General has his fingerprints all over the corruption that is being steadily exposed in all this. He was at the Justice Department under Loretta Lynch. He was in the middle of the Russian investigation long before Mueller entered the fray. When he appointed Mueller as Special Counsel the day after Mueller interviewed with President Trump for the FBI Director job, Rosenstein knew that Mueller had multiple conflicts of interest and by any definition of “conflict” was NOT eligible to serve in such a sensitive and highly visible position.

Regarding recent happenings, Rosenstein is quoted as threatening Congressmen Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy for their diligent and fervent calls for transparency and demands for details of the FISA warrants’ to be released to the public. Think about that: the Deputy AG threatened Congressional members for pushing for transparency of government agencies regarding the targeting of private American citizens in fake foreign agent investigations — which is illegal!

Loretta Lynch

My mentioning the former Attorney General in this conversation may surprise you, but she is in this up to her neck. It would be foolish to believe the AG did NOT know everything going on in this investigation as it played out in 2016-17. Remember her famous tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton at Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix? That meeting was Obstruction of Justice. Why? Clinton as the principal of the Clinton Foundation was under investigation at the time of the meeting. Also, his wife was under FBI investigation at the time.

Further, her obstruction went further in her instructions to FBI Director Comey to call the FBI Hillary investigation a “matter” rather than what it was: an investigation. That’s obstruction, too.

Hillary Clinton

Do I need to detail? I think not. Her fingerprints are on EVERY part of this investigation. It goes far beyond “Email Gate.” She paid through her campaign and the DNC for the Steele Dossier — opposition research of the Trump Campaign — and then began to cry for investigation of the Trump Campaign for Russian collusion! There indeed WAS collusion with the Russians during the 2016 election cycle — not by Trump or his campaign, but by the Clinton Campaign!

Barack Obama

Do not be so naive as to believe that all of this investigation process into the Trump Campaign that was handled by his FBI and his Department of Justice without the President hearing about every detail and knowing what was happening as it happened. Think about this: this investigation involved direct dealings by members of the Intelligence Community with members of the Russian government. Details were certain to be discussed as they developed by National Security Advisor Susan Rice along with Michael Flynn, Comey, the CIA and NSA heads in National Security meetings with the President. He may not have directed specifics in that investigation, but he certainly knew what was happening and when it happened.

Summary

So what should happen now? Simple: IMMEDIATELY impanel a federal grand jury with a federal prosecutor. That prosecutor needs to be Michael Horowitz who is currently Inspector General of the Justice Department. He is close to wrapping up his massive investigation of the Justice Department. Even with 500 employees on his watch in this current investigation, we have seen or heard NO details at all leaked of his investigation. He has a history of sticking to the law, staying out of political influence or obligations to either side, and is a bulldog after the truth. As the federal prosecutor in this matter, he should be given free rein to take any and every action necessary to investigate all of the individuals mentioned above, given complete subpoena power and whatever budget is necessary to have a thorough and immediate investigation to get facts and get them immediately.

To be quite honest, there is NO fear in the hearts of any of these folks — YET. They probably have been operating in a perfect vacuum in which they have no accountability and have every opportunity to run free in all their wrongdoing. It is time to pay the Piper.

It is time to stop the memos, stop the wild assumptions by the Media, and get to the truth.

We are at a scary place in American history. The way this whole thing has played out looks eerily just like what happens in banana republics. The United States certainly is NOT a banana republic. But it is beginning to look like one.

Free Press or Not?

I am often chided because of my obvious low opinion of the Mainstream media. I think there is some vindication in the air for my feelings.

Front and center for the last week or so is the Mainstream media’s absolute hypocrisy compared to Mainstream media in the 70’s. There’s even a movie out about it. The Washington Post took their fight for the Press to be able to access information from the Pentagon to the Supreme Court — and won. Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep co-star in the movie out now Pentagon Papers that chronicles that fight. Yet with that movie in theaters now starring two of the highest profile Hollywood leftist elites who claim to be driven by a consuming lust for transparency from all in government, lost is the purpose for this movie and the struggle the Post experienced to publish for the American public the truth.

Hypocrisy? Yep. Plenty to go around here. The New York Times editorial board, the Washington Post, news anchors from all the cable news channels, Democrat Party leaders and Congressional members, and even Jimmy Kimmel are literally going crazy at Congressman Nunes’ efforts to shed light for the American public on the apparent political corruption that exists at the Justice Department and the FBI. Their allegations about the memo and its release ran the full spectrum of charges against the GOP in general, the President, Nunes and Paul Ryan, and everyone in America who thinks this information should be released. And since its release, the MSM have been joined by EVERYONE on the Left with a cry in unity claiming the release illustrates President Trump’s disdain for the DOJ, the FBI, and everyone in the Intelligence Community. They say simply releasing this memo has destroyed the public safety in the U.S. and America’s national security.

I guess they miss the disclaimer EVERY conservative I have seen or heard discuss pros and cons of its release. All (including President Trump) in every press conference and interview are careful to make it clear that the mistrust of the DOJ and FBI are NOT for the rank and file members of either department, but of a select few of those in leadership who for some reason or reasons have chosen to join the quest to destroy this President no matter the cost. And in doing so they have gone all-in allowing anything and everything necessary to achieve that objective to be part of the process — forget about truth and justice and the law.

Why the Struggle to Hide Contents of the Memo?

There can only be one answer for their fight to protect the contents of the memo: there’s something to hide (or some “things” to hide) that cause all of these former self-proclaimed bastions of the Free Press and transparency in reporting to abandon their ethics, morals, and journalistic integrity to hide whatever there is to hide.

It has been shocking to watch their efforts to denigrate everyone within the process of production and release of this information to the public. They leave nothing on the table. All decency and professionalism is gone. So what could the reason or reasons be for this massive struggle to hide its contents? Let’s take a look:

  • The information is so damning EVERYBODY on the Left is implicated in wrongdoing. That could include the actual Intelligence Department perpetrators, bosses who instigated or simply knew of and allowed the wrongdoing, members of the Press who were complicit in coverups and leaking false information to Americans disguised as true news reports, and a host of politicians;
  • Intelligence agency management are “in the tank” for everything anti-Trump and are so blinded by his agenda they have colluded with each other to create an environment that in their minds is necessary to destroy him and his plans for the nation;
  • Someone or something has placed a cloud of fear over the DOJ and FBI that is forcing those in charge to initiate these actions against the Trump agenda to protect whoever is demanding these coverup actions. If true, that would mean there is a grand conspiracy directed by someone outside of the Intelligence community that has enough power (from every source they possess) to “blackmail” those at DOJ and FBI to do their bidding;
  • Some type of deal was negotiated and implemented between those on the Left and those in the Intelligence community that is simply being played out that was made necessary by the Trump victory last November;
  • The DNC, the Clintons, and/or other Leftists had cut deals to protect all those who are complicit in these coverups because Hillary was certain to be elected. That would have given them all the cover necessary for them to be able to do whatever things they were asked to do and committed to do, knowing Hillary would issue a “get out of jail free” card from the White House.  None of them expected there to ever be a need to hide the truths revealed in the Memo.

New Questions After the Nunes Memo Release

  1. Who broke what federal laws in the corrupt actions taken by the Media, members of the FBI and Justice Department, and complicit politicians? Will any or all face prosecution for their illegal actions?
  2. What FBI and DOJ members will be fired? And if not fired, who will answer why?
  3. What other information will be unearthed with the subsequent investigation(s) Congressman Nunes has stated are underway? Who will be implicated and what actions will be taken to hold those responsible?
  4. How far up the chain in the Obama Administration does the wrong-doing go? Will action be taken against those identified of acts that played into the corruption revealed in the memo?
  5. It is obvious the MSM is in direct coordination of story lines and messaging with the DNC and Congressional Democrats on what to say on what days to fight every part of and every person involved in the release of this document. Who orchestrated such coordination?

There will certainly be many more questions asked and surely many surprises will be revealed in the coming days. But here is the largest and most nagging question for me: Knowing factually that there were definite unethical if not illegal actions taken to obtain the initial FISA warrant and its subsequent renewals, and hearing the mounting and intensifying cries of foul against the MSM and Democrats on the Left, is it really possible that the Media and Democrats would approve the illegal actions that took place so far in this investigation? Do they really want to allow such lying, cheating, and hiding of facts from the American people to be not only allowed in the future, but to encourage doing so? Was it OK for those illegal actions to have been taken?

If that is what their objective is, I pray with all that is in me that somehow someway someone will step forward who knows where every skeleton is buried and will present evidence to Americans to prove it all.

Summary

It is time for Americans to demand that every person in United States government turns away from any and every political narrative. It is time for Americans to demand every action taken by any member of the federal government be straight by the book: the U.S. Constitution and subsequent duly passed by Congress federal laws. It is time for Americans to shine the light on corruption in Washington.

Further, it is time for EVERY politician — whether elected or appointed — to either embrace ONLY the laws of the U.S. or step away.

I will promise you one thing: though some do not like him, his style, or his methods, this President has just gotten started carrying around a really big flashlight. He has just begun to shine that flashlight around the dark corners of the Swamp kitchen. As that flashlight shines in the dark kitchen corners, all the critters are being exposed.

There have been presidents in the past who have started out with the same goals and objectives. They too have shined a flashlight and exposed some of the D.C. Swamp kitchen critters. But each have eventually given-in to the vastness of the Swamp and the amazingly large number of critters that live there. This President has never in his life given up on anything. And he carries a bunch of extra batteries to make sure his flashlight has plenty of power.

The difference with Donald Trump? He keeps his light shining around the Swamp and never turns it off. He’s got fresh batteries. And when the light stays on, the darkness goes away. The light keeps the darkness away. The critters have no place to hide. So they get caught.

The critters are afraid. I’m pretty sure that is why they’re all working so hard — Democrats, Mainstream Media, and some establishment Republicans — to either put out his flashlight or run him out of the Swamp. Critters love the dark. Why? It hides everything they don’t want anybody to see.

 

“The” Memo Part II: Let’s Answer Questions

Yesterday I asked you to contemplate 10 questions that seemed obvious to me with the release of the Nunes Memo. Today we are going to give you OUR answers to those questions. So you will not have to go back and forth, we’ll first put each question from yesterday followed by our answers in red:

“Old” Questions (yes, we’ll have some new ones)

  1. We were told the release of the Memo would endanger national security. Exactly what damage has been done by its release? Multiple Intelligence officials and members of Congressional committees have been asked that question since the release of the memo. Each has verified emphatically that the release of the Nunes memo in NO way jeopardized national security or any member of the intelligence community — other than possibly opening a criminal case against them for their possible illegal involvement in the highly illegal activities.
  2. (Assuming the answer would be “no danger to national security occurred) Why then did Democrat minority head of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff warn Americans that the release when he knew there was no danger? That is now easily answered with a very obvious answer: Adam Schiff (D-Ca) is apparently one of many in Congress and the Media who had to be complicit in the attempted coverup of all the corruption apparently part of the FISA process. Tomorrow’s story here details the specifics of those very things. You’ll want to make sure and tune in.
  3. Why did the FBI implore the White House to redact the names of all the FBI contributors to the investigation from the memo? FBI officials knew that there was embarrassing information included in the memo and therefore wanted to try somehow to maintain a level of integrity for all those who participated in the FISA coverup. Therefore they implored Congress and the President to keep those names confidential.
  4. Did the FBI in providing the “proof” necessary to convince a FISC judge a FISA warrant was justified lie to the judge providing false “proof” as evidence to justify such a warrant? I am convinced that now since the first layer of the corruption onion has been peeled away and is showing illegal activity was probably going on in the FISA warrant application process, the FISA judge or judges who issued the first FISA warrant and the subsequent renewals will at least take actions to force those members of the FBI and DOJ who represented the evidence presented to those judges that resulted in the warrants to stand accountable for those actions. What that means remains to be determined, but could easily be Obstruction of Justice IF those Intelligence officials purposely and intentionally misled those judges. Obviously hiding that the Steele dossier had anything to do with the “evidence” uncovered and that the dossier was funded by the DNC and Clinton Campaign could also feed into that possible Obstruction of Justice outcome.
  5. How did James Comey, (then FBI Director) later Rod Rosenstein, (Deputy Attorney General) and FBI Director Christopher Ray convince the FISA judge that Carter Page was spying for the Russian government? Doing so is required for a FISA warrant to be issued, and in this case issued and renewed 3 times. Plain and simple: they lied to the Court! For certain James Comey did. He submitted the FISA application for the initial warrant, and he did that days BEFORE he told the President in his office in the presence of multiple intelligence department heads the dossier was riddled with unreliable and unverified information. He represented in that FISA application the dossier at least part of the basis for the FISA warrant. He did NOT tell the Judge that the dossier was funded by the DNC and Clinton campaigns. 
  6. Why did James Comey at the White House before the Inauguration tell President Trump the details of the Steele dossier and that it was full of wild conjecture and had no truth when days before he had used that dossier to convince the FISA judge to issue the warrant for the investigation? We cannot give you a “for certain” answer to that question. But playing into the probable reasoning for Comey doing so is his very obvious attempts (along with all those other FBI and DOJ culprits) to destroy the Trump presidency and his agenda. His telling the FISA Court one thing and the President something else doesn’t bode well for Comey in subsequent weeks and months.
  7. Why did two FBI officials who went to the Capitol to read the memo last Sunday state on the record there were no errors in the details contained in the memo only for the FBI to publicly release the next day a statement claiming the memo was full of incorrect information and releasing it was a danger to national security? This puzzles us. We can only give at this time a logical reason for the flip-flop. Probably what happened is that after reading the memo, the two together felt it would be better to just tell the truth: based on their understanding of the law, the FISA process, and the process of all that happened in this investigation, there was nothing inaccurate or damaging to national security and simply told the truth. It makes sense to believe that when telling their supervisors their thoughts they were pressed hard to fall in line with the “company story line” and support the FBI’s cries to NOT release the memo.
  8. Why mysteriously has the Leftist Media parroted for weeks exactly what Democrat Adam Schiff and every other Congressional Dem claimed as reasons to not release the memo? Schiff’s strangle-hold on the narrative about the memo as it was reported by members of the Leftist media illustrates who the real players are in this corruption. Make sure you read tomorrow for in-depth information about this.
  9. Why has President Trump been so surprisingly quiet immediately before and after the memo’s release, not attacking those involved in the FBI, DOJ, or even the media about the apparent hatchet job perpetrated through this investigation? Maybe someone changed the President’s twitter password! Seriously, he has acted very judiciously (and presidential) through the process of getting this memo into the hands of the American people. He left it to professionals in Congress and the DOJ and his Cabinet that he trusts to do the heavy lifting and working with Nunes. Frankly his silence through this has been a pleasant surprise. But we all know he actually has an incredibly active twitter finger. He will not sit on his hands very long on this!
  10. Will the court and the judge or judges who issued the initial FISA warrant that was renewed several times take any actions against those in the DOJ and FBI who provided the evidence that was fabricated to justify the warrants? I’m certain they will. But what I am pretty certain those judges will do is sit tight until the pending Inspector General report of the FBI and DOJ is released in the next month. This IG investigation has been exhaustive and elaborate and will contain massive data, documents, and facts that certainly will shed light on deeper darker issues discovered than thouse in the Nunes memo. Expect a lot more detail in that report which the FISC courts will certainly use to hold those accountable who apparently misled the judges in the process of procuring FISA surveillance authority.

Summary

No doubt there will be more and more questions that are produced from new information that seeps into the public sector over the next few days and weeks. Nunes has actually stated this memo is the first of several that are being finalized now and will be made public in the upcoming days. In my opinion there is no possibility of there not being criminal prosecution of those involved in this corruption once investigations are complete. And I don’t think the list of “dirty players” is yet complete. I feel the Obama DOJ was complicit in the deceit/corruption and that those at the DOJ who orchestrated this process will be implicated. I think too that members of the DNC and Clinton Campaign will be targets as well.

Regarding members of the FBI and DOJ: more than anything this corruption surfacing will give authorities in the judicial system a mandate to clean up every intelligence department in every area. Why? As long as America is here, we MUST have intelligence operations and we must have judicial operations, both with legislative oversight. What this means simply is that all those in charge better be clean, innocent of wrongdoing, and not found complicit in any of these actions. If their hands are dirty in any way(s) they MUST be removed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of law — IF we as American citizens are to ever regain respect and trust for the FBI and DOJ.

That MUST happen!

See you tomorrow. Strap in: we’re on a tough and LONG ride!

“The” Memo

Here it is.

It is first a two-page letter from President Trump’s attorney referencing reasoning and legal authorization for this memo’s release. The next pages are the actual memo.  Please click on the following link and read the entire 4 page memorandum and the White House attorney’s letter. The let’s talk.

Nunes-memo

 

The Story

For weeks now we have watched and listened as the Leftist media and Congressional Democrats have blasted Congressman Devin Nunes for preparing and releasing this memorandum. They claimed basically that the release of the memorandum would initiate Armageddon on the U.S. Rather than speculate as the Media has continuously, tonight let’s ask some questions that are based on everything Americans have had shoved down our throats for months, and then as Americans let the questions we ask and the answers that we “deplorables” can garner ourselves from reading the memorandum begin a REAL process of ferreting out the truth of the FBI, the DOJ, AND the Obama White House used in investigating Russian collusion by the Trump organization prior to the Mueller Investigation.

Our Questions

  1. We were told the release of the Memo would endanger national security. Exactly what damage has been done by its release?
  2. (Assuming the answer would be “no danger to national security occurred) Why then did Democrat minority head of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff warn Americans that the release when he knew there was no danger?
  3. Why did the FBI implore the White House to redact the names of all the FBI contributors to the investigation from the memo?
  4. Did the FBI in providing the “proof” necessary to convince a FISC judge a FISA warrant was justified lie to the judge providing false “proof” as evidence to justify such a warrant?
  5. How did James Comey, (then FBI Director) later Rod Rosenstein, (Deputy Attorney General) and FBI Director Christopher Ray convince the FISA judge that Carter Page was spying for the Russian government? Doing so is required for a FISA warrant to be issued, and in this case issued and renewed 3 times.
  6. Why did James Comey at the White House before the Inauguration tell President Trump the details of the Steele dossier and that it was full of wild conjecture and had no truth when days before he had used that dossier to convince the FISA judge to issue the warrant for the investigation?
  7. Why did two FBI officials who went to the Capitol to read the memo last Sunday state on the record there were no errors in the details contained in the memo only for the FBI to publicly release the next day a statement claiming the memo was full of incorrect information and releasing it was a danger to national security?
  8. Why mysteriously has the Leftist Media parroted for weeks exactly what Democrat Adam Schiff and every other Congressional Dem claimed as reasons to not release the memo?
  9. Why has President Trump been so surprisingly quiet immediately before and after the memo’s release, not attacking those involved in the FBI, DOJ, or even the media about the apparent hatchet job perpetrated through this investigation?
  10. Will the court and the judge or judges who issued the initial FISA warrant that was renewed several times take any actions against those in the DOJ and FBI who provided the evidence that was fabricated to justify the warrants?

Summary

In tomorrow’s story we will answer in detail each of the above 10 questions and provide factual evidence for our answers. I am certain you will have more questions. Please feel free to ask those questions below and we will answer those with evidence as we respond to these 10. Additionally after answering these and your questions, I will make some predictions about the future course of actions that will most likely be taken as a result of the actions detailed in the memo. One thing you need to know for sure: the information released in this memo comprises only 10-15% at most of the evidence of collusion between senior members of the Obama DOJ, FBI, and whoever else from the “real” Deep State” have been part of all this. And, probably, there are those who are STILL part of what is playing out.

There is plenty more to come. I’ll hint one prediction to you: this will go down as the most egregious and evil breach of intelligence in U.S. history before it is put to bed. It will dwarf the unbelievable illegal activity of Watergate. There will be millions of dollars earned by various books, novels, and movies and those who prepare them based on this corrupt chapter in U.S. Intelligence history. Sadly for Americans, more millions of taxpayer dollars will be sucked away by this and other investigations and prosecutions of those who were and part of this. Lady Liberty will be busy for several years to come.

Oh….we will also tell you how this will impact Robert Mueller and his minions.

The House Intelligence Committee Memo: Nuclear Bomb!

The nuclear bomb that is nastier and more powerful than any ever in our nation is about to explode. We are about to have the layers of the “corruption onion” called “American Intelligence” peeled back to lay naked the near-treasonous actions by the very individuals charged with protecting America. That protection is designed to carefully and thoroughly guarantee Americans we are safe 24/7 from all those who seek to take advantage of everything and everybody who lives in the U.S. It is anticipated that details contained in this memo will change the way American Intelligence operates today and forever.

What is already shockingly proven factual is that in an unprecedented manner those at the highest management levels of each Intelligence agency have locked arms with each other to mount and implement an attack on the Constitution, the rule of law, and the greatest political system on Earth — until today. The scariest of these pending revelations? For the first time in American history, the Mainstream Media and the Democrat Party have joined forces to coverup the truth of this corruption and take every measure possible to prevent Americans from discovering it. Their messaging is identical!

Who is blowing the dog whistle and passing out the talking points? Is it Schumer. Maybe it’s Pelosi. Maybe it is George Soros. It might even be — I’m going to say it — Barack Obama.

The book is out on who is in charge. But make no mistake, the Media AND the Democrat Party have resorted to the most vile, most vicious, loudest and wildest methods every seen to in lock step with each other STOP the release of the memo.

I cannot wait for its release! I will have plenty of narrative immediately upon its release. I will also post it in its entirety immediately when it is released to the public.

Make a point to check back here — hopefully tomorrow morning (Friday, February 2) to read it and share narrative, thoughts, and even questions.

I’ve said it before: “Buckle up….we’re about to take a wild ride together!

Anger, Disbelief, or Fear?

That’s a good question regarding the motives for the obvious disdain expressed by Democrats during the first State of the Union message of President Trump. Longtime Congressional Dem leaders, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, and many rank-and-file Democrats sat on their hands most of the evening. Something’s up for certain. What could it be?

While most everyone else in the Hall was on their feet applauding, here’s the things President Trump touted for which Democrats failed to applaud OR stand:

  • Black unemployment is at the lowest rate in recorded history;
  • The stock market has zoomed to never-before-achieved highs adding $8 Trillion of value to stocks — stocks owned by Americans, many who are Middle Class building retirement accounts;
  • Female unemployment is at its lowest level in 18 years;
  • His commitment to use all Federal resources available to fight opiod abuse;
  • 2.4 million new jobs created in his first year as President;
  • His promise to provide 1.8 million Dreamers amnesty and a path to citizenship — twice as much as offered by Obama in 2013 — which Democrats supported;
  • His promise to end immigration lottery and chain immigration replacing them with merit-based immigration — which Democrats supported in 2013;
  • His support for standing during  the National Anthem;
  • His praise for companies that on their own chose to give 3 million+ middle class employee bonuses $3 Billion+ in bonuses because of the new Tax Law;
  • Massive tax cuts for low and middle class Americans;
  • Companies like Apple announce they are bring hundreds of billions of profits made overseas back to the U.S. to build new factories and add tens of thousands of new jobs;
  • We are a nation with the motto “In God We Trust.”

It is uncanny to see the stark contrast during his address — not just between Democrats and Republicans on the floor, but between Democrats and the huge crowd of spectators in the Hall balconies that were guests of lawmakers.

So What’s Going on With Democrats?

Let’s look at and analyze the possible explanations for Democratic  venom for all things Trump as they appear on various political stages in America:

  • They simply hate him.

Congressional Black Caucus response when POTUS remarks that Black unemployment is lowest in history

I’ve believed for more than a year Democrats simply hate him and therefore refuse to support any issue he supports and any legislation he supports. They as a group support every issue he does not support as well as any legislation he does support. That would make sense — until last night. Certainly that explanation would be plausible IF the issues he has put forward that HE supports were the ones they have hated historically. Example: Immigration. His new immigration proposal is virtually identical to legislation that cleared the Senate in 2013 that the House then voted down, BUT he doubled the number of Dreamers that would be eligible for amnesty than Dems asked for in 2013.

  • Democrats want him to fail.

This theory can easily make sense, especially in the atmosphere created and amped up continuously during the 2016 campaign by the Leftist media and maintained even after his election. Remember, they for months all laughed on-air at any mention that Donald Trump could ever be elected President. He was and that embarrassed them all. Any and all of his successes while in office simply serve as salt rubbed in their wounds of being wrong in their election certainties that all placed Hillary at the podium giving that State of the Union speech — certainly not Donald Trump.

  • Democrats do not support the issues he detailed in his speech.

This is a tough one to mention. Why? Lower taxes for the Middle Class, numerous new jobs, low unemployment for Women and Black Americans, Immigration Reform, have all been the “property” of the Democrat Party for decades — yet they have failed miserably in attempts at making  those happen. Simply because he’s Donald Trump — the leader of America’s deplorables — they have turned against their historical ideals and election platform planks. Their leaders — Pelosi and Schumer — demand undying support for the politically correct positions on all issues when either blows their dog whistle. Pelosi and Schumer are in locked step against everything Trump supports, even if they supported those issues previously. Does this not — if it’s true — illustrate exactly the depth of hypocrisy on the Left: “Symbolism over Substance?”

And here’s the scariest of the possibilities:

  • Dems literally no longer support these longtime Democrat Party fundamental positions.

Could it be that these fundamental Democrat positions held for decades could no longer be positions which Democrats believe and support? If true, that means a 180 degree position change almost overnight.

  • Democrats fear Donald Trump.

This may be the most plausible explanation for what we saw play out at the Capitol. Because of the results already visible of the positive Trump policies, Dems are deathly afraid of what is happening. They fear Donald Trump’s ability to brush aside the constant blustery threats of Schumer and Pelosi, and to ignore or simply laugh at the continued hysterical attacks from the Mainstream Media. But most importantly, the Dems see that Americans are seeing not only that the President’s campaign promises have begun to come to pass, they are actually working! 

But their biggest fear is that with each economic, social, and foreign policy victory for the Nation under this President’s Administration, the political power long held by the Democratic Party erodes a bit more. And that power and control erosion is growing and consuming every liberal principle in its path. They simply do not know what to do. 

Summary

Seldom are decisions that are made based on fear the right choices. Because of that, we’re seeing Democratic leadership crumble before our eyes. What Pelosi, Schumer AND Establishment rank-and-file GOP and Dems in Congress are watching in horror is that political bunk is no longer acceptable to Americans. Americans in growing numbers are accepting the truth of that age old Scriptural principle, “You will know the truth AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.”

Because of this, the call of “Make America Great Again” is becoming believable.
