What has Hollywood Done Now?
Well, well, well, In yet another staged gala event awarding themselves statues and recognitions, The Golden Orbs awards ceremony, filled with Hollywood’s beautiful people dressed in black to make a visual statement about something that irks them, joined together with unbridled enthusiasm to proclaim their new messiah, Oprah Winfrey as their 2020 Presidential choice.
That won’t go well with the Democrats who still have their usual suspects, the elderly Joe Biden, Chuckie Schumer, Barry Sanders, the Indian maiden, Liz Warren, and dementia challenged Nancy Pelosi, hanging around their necks like albatrosses or hangman nooses. No, Oprah is good for preaching the Progressive line, expressing costly empathy for the poor and downtrodden, the illegals and homeless and those living in the shadows, but not as president. That simply won’t do! One presidential disaster is enough to overcome.
Admittedly, Oprah made a wonderfully stirring speech against something or other, the powerlessness of women one supposes, that could be classified right up there with Obama’s speech to the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago a few years ago. That speech, like Oprah’s, quickly brought Obama instant political recognition and then the presidency a few years later which he promptly set about “changing.” Obama was a fascist. Oprah is a products salesman.
For 2020, the elephant in the room is the sitting President, Donald Trump. He is getting things done by setting America back on it constitutional tracks, while being the constant object of left wing media derision, fake news attacks designed to undermine his administration, and personal attacks against his family, his associates and his administration. Oh, hell, attacks against anything Conservative and everything Trump.
The need to make comparisons cannot be ignored. Both Trump and Oprah are very wealthy in their own rights and that recommends them for good business sense. Trumps skills lie in recognizing where money can be made, not out of wacky ideas or from printing presses, but of seeing potential in community growth, offering people what they want and buying property to build structures that will accomplish those goals. He spreads the wealth. So does Oprah, but on a commercial scale of product identification and salesmanship. She’s very good at it.
Other skills Trump enjoys is the ability to successfully negotiate with people, to make them happy with the deal, as well as making his investors happy. That’s called Capitalism and the fall out for it is increased employment for the communities he builds in and taxes for government.
Oprah is wealthy because she knows how to sell products, save her money and spread wealth and happiness to the people she employees and the people she hocks her products to. Not too shabby, and another great example of Capitalism at work. Both are hard workers and it shows,
But Trump also saw how quickly a rogue government can steal a populations economic vitality by ignoring the rules of economics (socialism) through onerous rules and regulations. He sought to correct it by running for President with the expressed purpose of making America great again. The people bought it and he is doing exactly what he promised he would do, like Jesus kicking the money changers out of the temple. 2020 is three years away. Can Hollywood really sell us Oprah? Can she do what Trump has done? That remains to be seen, but don’t bet on it.

Recusal, What the Hell Is It, and Why?
The DoJ is reviving the Clinton email investigation. Just what that mean for true justice is unclear. The FBI already investigated the Clinton email case and excused her for being naughty. What’s next? My beef is that Jeff Sessions recused himself for some inane reason I have yet to fathom, lest it be that early into the Trump administration, still uneasy on their feet and fearing what the Democrats would do to retaliate against Republicans at a later time, it was a small gesture of appeasement. Whatever it’s justification to the AG, it really irked the boss.
In hindsight, we see now that not only was it unnecessary, but it created its own set of problems that will occupy the media and Democrat fundraising efforts for years. Democrats may be down, even near extinction, but they’re not out… yet. Until Donald Trump, Republicans were afraid of offending Democrats. The “Never Trump” crowd still are and that includes long time Republican politicians like Jeff Sessions. I’m not saying he’s bad, he just needs to be reeducated in the art of political judo and realize his strengths, and then, go get ‘em!
Nobody complained aloud when Obama’s AG, Eric Holder started deadly gun running operations to Mexican drug gangs, or launched schemes to take over city police departments under the “Hands up, Don’t Shoot,” meme. Nobody screamed about his failure to inquire why Hillary sold American uranium to the Russians and received in return, vast donations to the Clinton Foundation. If they did, the leftist media didn’t report on it.
Neither did anyone demand to know why Loretta Lynch met secretly with Bill Clinton on a Arizona airport tarmac just before the election of Donald Trump, or why she allow James Comey to do her job of excusing Hillary. Was there a conspiracy to prevent Trump from becoming President? Of course there was! You have to be an idiot to not see that.
But now, we’ get to the really consequential stuff like threatening America’s national interests and compromising the nations security by her ‘unintentional’ mishandling of American secrets and systems. Despite what former FBI director James Comey opined about Hillary’s lack of ‘intent’ to harm America, the fact remains she did and any ‘lack of intent’ is of no consequence to the rule of law or the pursuit of justice. This tawdry Mueller affaire, is a cobbled together fallout attempt to cover up Hillary’s crimes and place them on Trump’s shoulders. It’s working in reverse.
The question now is how will Jeff Sessions undo the damage Holder, Lynch and Comey may have done to American justice? For Hillary, there was no Grand Jury empaneled to hear evidence, Comey decided that by himself; therefore, there was no indictment, and no trial, so any issue of double jeopardy does not apply. Hillary staffers, Huma Abedin, Donna Brazile and others, can now be considered co conspirators and interrogation under Miranda warning, and be squeezed like they squeezed General Flynn to admit to lying to the FBI. That’s all it takes.
Who is going to take responsibility for destroying the evidence of Huma’s and Donna’s laptops? That’s a crime and because an FBI person does it, makes it no less a crime. I can tell you, no agent would do such a thing without being told to do so. There will be a scapegoats. There has to be, so expect underlings like FBI Agent Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page to fill that bill. They’re young, they were in heat. and they are sure patsy’s for protecting the higher up’s.
I think President Trump has lit a fire under Republicans and the earth is starting to move. Watch the exodus of deep state employees flee for retirement or new jobs in industry.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (08Jan18)
When Will They Do Something?
The Democrats slavishly anticipate a sweeping return of the power they once wielded by regaining the Congress, they hope, this year. But they ignore the reason that got them into their predicament in the first place. Voters didn’t want a third Obama term. Voters didn’t want that crooked Hillary Clinton screwing up America any more by extending Obama’s policies and, in fact, Voters really prayed for justice to be served on her for her multiple high crimes and misdemeanors. We’re not stupid after all. We know what’s wrong and we will vote.
Americans once trusted the FBI implicitly. The Clinton’s ruined all that. The FBI is now wreathed in controversy, infested with Clinton partisans and politically, in a position on the wrong side of Constitutionality earning for themselves the same level of distrust as a salesmen of aluminum siding or Obamacare enjoys. Once lost, trust cannot be reinstated without pain.
The Mueller investigation, after one whole year, is a sham. Nothing that comes from the anti-Trump inquiry can be considered trustworthy. When is the FBI investigation into real Russian collusion by the Clinton Foundation, the DNC and the Obama Administration, going to happen? The American People are waiting. It will happen when the AG, Mr. Jeff Sessions, gets off his butt, un-recuses himself and does his job, that’s when. Americans are ready for it.
Remember Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s trusted Islamic Brotherhood connected personal aide? She actually forwarded State Dept. passwords to her personal Yahoo account before it was casually perused by Russian agents. This means the compromised sites were not in fact hacked but were simply opened as one would open a refrigerator door and peek in. Corruption for money runs deep in the Clinton Foundation. Huma was not Interrogated by the FBI, just interviewed. Her lap top computer, according to James Comey, was simply destroyed. No charges were made against her or anyone else. The depth of Hillary’s protection is breathtaking.
The exposures were known to Hillary as early as July 2009 where another Clinton confident, Sid Blumenthal sent her an email with the subject line: Important, Not For Circulation. You (Hillary) Only, Sid.” It was marked “Confidential” and titled: “Moscow Summit.” Abedine forwarded the email to her Yahoo address potentially making it visible to hackers. That’s called a clue but for Democrats, it’s a smoking gun.
Apparently, Abedin regularly sent her work emails to her personal account, that included her husband Anthony Weiner, of “weiner” fame, as discovered by a Judicial Watch FOIA request. Weiner laptop revealed a cache of thousands of Hillary’s dumped emails, many compromised, all recovered by the FBI. Abedin’s excuse was that it was difficult to print from the State Depts. system so she routinely forwarded emails to her personal user account. Yahoo verified the August, 2013 hacking of all their accounts that made national news.
Abedin sent her government laptop passwords to her Yahoo account on 24 Aug. 2009, as revealed by the State Dept. in Sept 2017. In 2013, three billion (yes, with a “B”) accounts were open to hackers across multiple Yahoo systems. Finally, the DoJ charged Russian FSB Officer, Igor Sustain, with hacking 500 million Yahoo accounts well into 2016. Sushchins cover was as a banker with Russian Investment Bank Renaissance Capital, the very bank that paid Bill Clinton half a million dollars for a short speech he made in Moscow in June 2010. When will our side do something about this sordid state of affairs? When will justice be served. Never, so long as the “deep state” remains intact. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (03Jan18).
Tax Incentives, Why?
So, Marco Rubio is the newest wannabe ‘Judas’ in the Republican stable. In the GOP Tax reform plan he demands that the tax reform plan must increase child tax credit incentives to the poor, or he won’t vote for it. This is so he can get re-elected in a Florida now filling up with refugees from hurricane wrecked Puerto Rico, not to mention Obama’s islamists, poverty fleeing Haitians and third worlders swarming across our southern borders to join in the fray.
We would expect Join McCain to do it. He would claim to see some imminent danger to the Republic if he deigned to support a Trump initiative that would allow Americans to keep more of their own earnings so, he would vote against it. But, little Marco? Naw!
Everything government does is based on a supposed “crisis of human affairs.” Who, exactly determines what that crisis is or should be? Why, politicians of course! California forest fires might fit the definition but people should have fire insurance and not build homes in foothills covered with brush that has the flashpoint of gasoline. The flooding and destruction that comes with hurricanes, unusual storms, zombie apocalypse and etc. could be a concern for government, but not the federal government. It’s not in their job description (the Constitution)! If you want to live in a flood zone, buy insurance. “Ya pays your money you takes your chances.”
What little Marco wants is that you and I, as wage earning tax payers, and we do pay our taxes in order to avoid going to jail, allow the government to take a bit more of those taxes we pay and squander it on other people, basically third worlders unqualified to be productive Americans anyway. Why are they allowed to receive incentives from us the the plight of our veterans is ignored. Why should illegals be rewarded without expending the effort required to get it?
As I understand it, Puerto Rico needs to be rebuilt. So does Haiti. Why are those people here in our country then, living nearly for free? We can’t afford ‘em anymore. Politicians are solely responsible for this near financial disaster of good intentions we are now facing yet, like lil Marco, they keep adding on “benefits” that we can no longer afford. Admittedly, right now, some Americans exult at the rising stock market earning big bucks. When the Europeans stop sending their money here to avoid their own coming EU collapse, and the cash pool available for our government to dip into ends and then we’ll have to face the consequences. It will not be happy.
I should think that welfare, including child incentive tax credits, should have strict, enforceable limits. Recipients of government welfare should be absolutely limited to three children and NO more. Besides, I cannot find one amendment in the US Constitution that permits government to dispense taxpayer money for any other purpose than those enumerated therein. I do read in the 10th Amendment, words that precisely limits what the federal government can and cannot do and that includes doing good deeds. Doing good deeds should belong to the states.
This form of thinking, spending our money outside that permitted by the constitution, is done by politicians who want to keep their jobs by showing favoritism to the abundant numbers of poor voters who will, naturally, vote to maintain free government stuff. If welfare was totally returned to the States, as the 10th amendment allows, the federal deficit and debt, will depress, along with the taxes they steal, and we will all be happier. Taxpayers in states near financial collapses, like California, Illinois and Connecticut are now experiencing, would also put an end to that foolishness. So would term limits for federal politicians. We should have the incentive to spend or save our own money not give it to government to spend foolishly. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (15Dec17)
Let me try to understand this. We are debating changes to our “Progressive” tax code, to make it easier for politicians to shake us down with us liking it, with people who can’t balance the checkbook and won’t listen to us anyway. Am I missing something?
So far, I have not yet heard the words “Fair Tax” enter this discussion. Why is that? Well, It’s all about economic control that allows politicians to pick and choose winners and losers. That power alone allows them to keep their jobs, stiff us, and make us play their game. I’m tired of it.
When corrupt politicians control our lives and we don’t recognize what it is doing to us, we allow their actions to pass on without complaint hoping apparently, that somebody else will do something. Americans just want to be left alone to provide for their families and their retirements, and it’s always the damn politicians who stand in our way. Less government means more freedom and I think the crippling effect of government deciding who pays how much, is unconstitutional anyway. A Fair Tax would solve that.
Congressional Republicans are ineffective at governing. Before, a few Congresses had over seventy GOP co-sponsors for the “FairTax”. Today, it’s half that. The reason was that it was once safe for them to say; “Yes, we support the Fair Tax” but, they never had an inkling they would actually have a chance to vote for it. They don’t want that. Now they just ignore it and hope it goes away.
When the Republicans became the majority and changing the tax code became a serious issue, they could still talk around it. With Trump’s election, Republicans went into a panic mode because they can’t or don’t want to explain the FairTax, let alone implement it.
I have talked with congressional campaigners in past elections and realized most are clueless about how the real tax system works or how the Fair Tax could improve economics for all.
This might help explain Obama’s twenty trillion dollar national debt he saddled us with leaving Donald Trump to take the blame when it all collapses, as it will, shortly.
The most important reason for their impotence is that under the Fair Tax politicians lose control over us. ‘Nuf said?” They would lose their power to reward and punish Americans using the current tax code and its enforcement arm, the IRS Gestapo, as a weapon. With the Fair Tax, loopholes would be closed and there would be no reason for the corruption lobbying encourages. Lobbyists bring money, and favors to our public servants ensuring the continuation of government corruption, not because money corrupts but because politicians are corruptible. One only need look at the Clinton Foundation and the Podesta Group to see real crime rings that can run circles around the Mafia. The changes wrought could be incalculable. Patronage would be threatened, tax lawyers and tax preparers would go belly up, and, lacking a “raison d’faire,” corrupt politicians would go home and try to exist off their congressional retirements. Not too shabby. With the Fair Tax we could also demand, because we desperately need it, term limits at all levels of government, not just the President.
But, that ain’t gonna happen. You know it and I know it because we simply do not have the power to lift the yoke of oppression off our shoulders or stop the lash on our backs and, be it a Democrat, a Republican or far left Socialists like uncle Bernie and Aunt Warren, our public servants in Washington won’t allow that. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Nov17)
Deep within the hidden recesses of the Pentagon, lurks a nondescript DoD group called the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, the lead agency apparently, for interviewing recovered, rescued or deserter prisoners of war, and other captives.
Among their latest achievements, is realizing the fall out gathered from interviews (interrogations?) of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. A lead representative of that group,Terrance Russell, gave evidence at Bergdahl’s sentencing that the deserter/traitor provided a “gold mine” of useful intelligence about the militants who held him captive for years in Pakistan. Well, so did Mata Hari!
Russell testified that Bergdahl’s decision to abandon his post in 2009 produced an unintended consequence, by revealing the tactics used by the Taliban, their methods of imprisoning captured soldiers and, presumably, their own interview techniques. As a result, military doctrine on how to avoid capture and evade, and escape if captured, was updated.
I wonder at what point, after Bergdahl’s return in Obama’s infamous trade deal, did the “interrogations” of Bergdahl cease and the thrust change to “interviews” by Russell’s JPRA group? Because of the seriousness of Bergdahl’s offense any interrogations would be under Miranda warning as criminal. So, who decided to cease ‘Interrogations’ for criminal offenses in favor of ‘interviews’ simply to update military doctrine on escape and evasion? Has justice really been served? I ask because in my twenty-one years career as a military CE/CI/Criminal investigator, we had to be sensitive to the direction any investigation could take. In Bowe Bergdahl’s case, his desertion directly caused the deaths and injuries of other US soldiers.
Russell, whose group produces training and doctrine materials, testified that “Bergdahl’s debriefing added to lessons taught to US troops and allied militaries,” adding that Bergdahl still has intelligence that has yet to be collected that could still help troops in Afghanistan. Of course, now it’s too late. Bergdahl will be on the run hiding from the retribution that will seek him out.
I’m not faulting Terrance Russell or his information collection group for doing their jobs. His work helps keep military field doctrine up to date. It’s a necessary element of theater survival that all troops need to know. Russell’s enthusiasm for doing his job properly is also revealed when he said: “can you give him to me now? I need him now. I needed him three years ago,” “The fact I can’t get that information is wrong.” Russell testified that he had debriefed more than 120 American captives, more than any other US official….Source: Washington Post. 31Oct17 .
The defense appeared to use testimony from Russell and a former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst, to suggest that there is a national security interest in showing Bergdahl leniency. US
Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, the presiding judge, apparently thought that Bergdahl’s potential punishment, life imprisonment, was simply too much for this army snowflake as he had already suffered enough under the Taliban.
So, the rehabilitation of Bowe Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty Oct. 16 to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy begins. However, there is another unintended consequence: the resentment remains and will fester. How does injustice match resentment? By what remaining Obama values are soldiers to be assuaged of Bergdahl’s crimes? When did mistreatment by the enemy mitigate justifiable punishment of an offenders true crimes? Don’t you wonder too?

A Week of Disasters
Where does one begin to reflect upon this weeks events? How does one devalue any American’s military service? We saw it start in the 1960’s when G.I.’s returning from Vietnam were spat upon, harassed and disrespected by the Communist influenced radicals who refused military service, organized demonstrations against ROTC programs and fought police on the streets. This was the era that spawned the Clinton’s. Gratefully, It’s almost over, we hope.
We see the NFL register their disrespect every weekend at game day, and we saw it again when the US Army deserter and traitor, Bowie Bergdahl walked out of a military court at Fort Bragg, NC, a man free of further punishment because a “snowflake” Obama officer, Col. Jeffery R. Nance, didn’t like the Commander-in-Chief’s comments about exchanging Bergdahl for five Muslim terrorist generals and opening that Bergdahl, who did not serve with honor or distinction, should be executed. It appears the inmates are still in charge of the institution.
But, Bergdahl isn’t free. He will forever be imprisoned by his cowardice, waiting and wondering when the retribution that settles scores will surely come. He will forever be looking over his shoulder, sleeping in different bedrooms every night, moving from place to place seeking the anonymity he so desperately craves and will never get. In the end, he will kill himself. He must!
Bergdahl’s treachery, and the court martial judges decision, is a burden almost too heavy to bear. Bergdahl will realize the approbation he so richly deserves and it will hound his thoughts to the grave, unlike his Commander-in-Chief, Obama, who nearly succeeded in neutering the very essence of a military’s strength with his transgender, homosexual policies of socialization. Bergdahl is a product of that socialization experiment.
That leaves us with 26 year old Devin P. Kelly, a once Air Force member awarded a Bad Conduct Discharged with a sad social media history of malfunctioning brain cells, who committed the awful murders in that Texas church. He was a deranged single white male with a personal history of violence, anger and hate. Immediately, the media screams “gun control, gun control,” yet we saw that a good man with a gun, can stop a bad man with a gun. The second amendment is non-negotiable by the way. Kelly’s in-laws were members of that church.
What the “Left” loves to do is immediately try to connect the murderers to Tea Party or conservative Republicans. If their search is not rewarded, and they’re now careful not to make rash assumptions, they report nothing at all. In this case, their search has not revealed Kelly’s political affiliation and, as we know if he had been a registered Republican, they would have screamed about it at once. Therefore, he had to have been a Progressive Democrat.
That brings us to sorting out the plethora of suggestions now flooding in about how to stop these awful shootings. What is apparent, and always ignored, is that thus far, all of America’s mass killings with guns and cars, were committed either by Muslims or Liberal Progressives. No NRA members yet. The Texas murders seriously suggests that to prevent these types of assaults in the future, anybody registered as a “Democrat” should be denied gun ownership. It only figures.
The Texas shooter had an Irish name. The Irish have devolved a long history of rebellion, shootings, and killings. Should the Irish among us be denied the right of Constitutional self-protection because one of their number committed an outrage at a small country church? Maybe not because he was Irish but because he was a Liberal/Progressive. Yes, that will do.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (06Nov2017)
The Unraveling of the Clinton Collusion
One can’t help but wonder if the deadly jihadist attack yesterday in NYC, was not a diversion to take our eyes off the Mueller/Comey/Manafort/DNC Collusion with the Russians operetta now unfolding in Washington DC. Maybe the Russian Facebook controversy was supposed to do that. In any event, they still haven’t tied Trump to any criminal offense involving the Russians, but with Hillary Clinton and her RICO machine they have. Where’s the cavalry when needed?
Muller, the Democrats ‘Torquemada’ as it were, is applying the squeeze, a technique long known to government interrogators to apply to low level nobody’s, encouraging them to “rat out” their superiors. The method was perfected long ago by the interrogators of the Spanish Inquisition and, when applied to an offenders genitalia, it works to extract even more damaging admissions, even if they don’t exist. “Confess now, avoid the rush.”
That Mueller is even involved in this investigation against Trump, is painful, especially with his Democrat background as well as adding all Clinton donors to his investigative staff. It could even rebound against him when he least expects it. Comey, who replaced Mueller as FBI Director, did the unthinkable, he involved himself in a task that the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, should have done, pass judgement on whether Hillary Clintons treasonous email debacle was triable as a high crime or misdemeanor against the security of the United States, or not.
Comey’s arrogant action, relieving Hillary of criminal culpability, opened the door to ambitious underlines in the higher ranks of the FBI (McCabe) and DOJ, (Rosenstein) to bring him down. Comey made a serious ‘faux Pas,’ and it is now comes to light that Rosenstein told Andrew McCabe that he was thinking of recommending to the president that Comey be replaced. Before he made such a decision, he wanted McCabe’s opinion of Comey’s handling of his job. Well, McCabe took that opportunity to stick a knife in Comey’s back by agreeing that Comey should be removed. This is all like a TV soap opera. Keep in mind, these are all unelected bureaucrats, real deep-state swamp dwellers who’s whole ambition is to remain at the apogee of power and work together to destroy Trump’s presidency. They will keep trying, won’t they?
These people are despicable, pious, self-serving hypocrites. Their jobs are sinecures that serves to enrich them at the expense of stupid elected politicians. It’s impossible to not have these bottom-feeders worm their way into all levels of government, and it screams for the corrective action that comes with mandatory transfers, much like the military does within its ranks every three or four years. It keeps the pot stirred.
The aura of conflict of interest here is unmistakable. Our Congress does the usual, nothing, except coalesce against the one man that actually wants to drain the swamp. Mueller, Comey, McCabe & Rosenstein are all way too deeply involved in this political mess to be able to fix it. The Media is protecting democrat corruption while trying to destroy Republicans who flail about in a vain attempt to save themselves. Republicans are either too stupid or too cowardly, or corrupt, to do anything about it. They can only continue to disrespect their base, rail against Trumps aggressive style of political combat and help the Democrats obstruct Trumps agenda.
It cannot be denied that the tone of the Russia debacle is changing rapidly. We hear less about collusion and more about the Russian Facebook ads because, even after one year’s worth of investigations, no evidence has emerged to support Trump’s collusion, indeed he is likely to be vindicated. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (01Nov2017)
