THE TIDE OF POPULISM.

 

An advantage that democracy offers is that democratic governments are subject to the “will of the people” and voters can change or ‘fire’ their governments when elected officials fail to better their lives. The flaw with democracy is that it is very expensive for the political class to run for elective office. Very rarely, self- funding non- politicians, like Ross Perot and Donald Trump, enter the political arena out of a sense of duty and patriotism. Some populist candidates, like Sen. Sanders, ask supporters for small donations, while the majority of Establishment candidates seek investments from business elites. These investors, to safeguard their investments, rig the political system. In the US, democrats have their super delegate rules to ensure their pre-selected Establishment candidate “wins” the nomination. The Republican Establishment candidate is normally the politician who has garnered the most campaign contributions. Investor financed politicians are the root causes of crony capitalism and corruption that creates the ‘Beggar thy Nation’ economy of ‘winners and losers’. This is why the promise of democracy and capitalism have failed to take roots in developing countries, and why populist movements in developed countries are now challenging the Establishment.

In American Corporate Boardrooms, Adam Smith’s version of capitalism has been replaced by Ayn Rand’s Objective Capitalism. She was an immigrant from Russia, a writer of fiction who professed that nationalism, patriotism and morality were impediments to profits, and because “greed is good”, human, social and societal costs were irrelevant factors in business decisions. Objective Capitalism, is capitalism without scruples, and to exploit and trample the underclass, they hire lobbyists, fund ‘Politicians of Fortune’ and think tanks to corrupt the financial and political systems. They “privatized profits and socialized losses”, became “too big to fail and too powerful to jail”, and in a twist of history, latter-day Nietzscheans, who believed all power be centralized in them and exercised for their benefit, have re-established themselves as the new ‘Master Class’.

Pseudo-intellectuals from Corporate think tanks working in conjunction with the liberal media propagate the ‘Master Class’ agenda by redefining what is good and evil, moral and immoral, and re-writing history in pursuit of a ‘Liberal World Order’. To legitimize themselves they claim they are the heirs of the Enlightenment, then, using the tactics of Dr. Gobbles, fabricate questionable claims that are endlessly repeated and spun into ‘facts’ that become imbedded in the sub conscious of a gullible electorate. They redefined outsourcing American jobs as Free Trade, and allege this has ushered in an era of prosperity. It has for the outsourcers and foreign labor markets, but has been catastrophic for American workers. They profess trade deficits are good as it brings in foreign investments. The Chinese with their billions in trade surpluses are trying to buy the nuclear power business of Westinghouse along with their classified nuclear technology which has the US government worried. They sermonize that budget deficits and debt are good economic policy, while the Congressional Budget Office are sounding alarms over the growing interest payments on US debt. They profess that unemployment is at a historic low but neglect to mention the millions of workers who have dropped off the employment radar because they have no hope of ever finding a decent job, that most new jobs are part time and independent contractor “on call’ jobs in a gig economy with no benefits, no job security, and no legal protections.

The 18th. century ‘Enlightenment Period’ the Liberals use as their template, was when ‘Free Thinkers’ began challenging religion and traditions to free individuals to pursue their own self interests. The result of this assault on the moral fabric of society, is that individuals have become more selfish, families and communities have disintegrated, and the support system once offered by religion, communities and family has fractured. One of the unforeseen consequences of the ‘Enlightenment’s’ attacks on religion and traditions is the formation of ‘Single Mothers’ as a family unit, with children growing up without the financial support nor the mentoring influence of fathers. This fast growing segment has become a powerful voting block and liberals have made government the financial ‘support system’ for most unwed mothers thereby ensuring their political support.

‘Enlightened’ liberals have targeted the US to be an ‘open society’ and open its borders to ‘humanity’. Their ‘intellectual’ spin is that immigration (never differentiating between legal and illegal) has a positive impact on the US economy. If this were true, the World Bank and the IMF would have, long ago, coaxed third world countries to open their borders to migrants and turbo-charge their economies! Using this questionable logic of the “intellectuals”, financially stressed Americans can become prosperous by opening their homes to any and everybody and sharing their limited resources with strangers!!! Uncontrolled illegal immigration profits only the ‘non-profit’ resettlement agencies that charge taxpayers approx. $10,000.00 per month to resettle each migrant, for slum-lords who can raise rents, grocery and other retailers who accept food stamps and many other forms of welfare payments. Fact is that by outsourcing US jobs, American workers have not only lost their paychecks but also their role as consumers in the consumer economy. Liberals want to fill this deficit in consumption by keeping American borders open to ‘humanity’, people who will fuel consumption using taxpayer funded food stamps and welfare checks. For American ‘losers’ this will result in a vanishing job market, wage suppression, overcrowded schools and emergency rooms and ballooning deficits and debt. Liberals are now floating the concept of a “Universal Basic Income” to lure in more migrants and structure a voting block of the dependent underclass to take control of Capitol Hill and the White House.

European nations that embraced the “Beggar thy Nation”, economics of Ayn Rand and the “open border’ liberal philosophy have problems similar to the US, namely, economic stagnation, inequality and uncontrolled immigration. European Union members who spurned Ayn Rand and stuck to their moral, nationalistic, ‘country above self’ capitalism have stronger economies but are also plagued with migrant problems, now, coupled with a refugee crisis ignited by ISIS. Many Europeans who do not see their liberal leaders making their lives safer and better are using the ballot box to demand change. What the global liberal media condemns as “mob rule’ by the “unwashed masses”, populists in Britain reclaimed their sovereignty by voting for the ‘Union Jack’ rather than the European Union. Most European populist parties, once on the fringes, are becoming mainstream, their clout forcing Establishment parties to address populist concerns. Perhaps, they remember Aesop’s fable of the Arab in his tent on a cold night agreeing to allow his camel to keep warm in the tent and later the camel telling the Arab to vacate his tent since the tent was too crowded for the two of them!. They have put the European liberal political Establishment on notice to make their lives safer and better, or in future elections, the very existence of the EU with open borders for non-Europeans could be at stake.

The global liberal media is agenda driven to propagate a “Liberal World Order” of “Open Societies”. They are active participants in establishing a borderless world, with the goal of winning converts to their cause. The concept of ‘winning’ and having a mission, disqualifies them from being a neutral observer of events and reporting unbiased news. They have shed their cloak of impartiality, and because they lack convincing intellectual arguments for their world view, they are ridiculing and venomously attacking patriotic populists and nationalists who swear allegiance to their border secured nations. The liberal media’s divisive narratives of discord and hatred for their opponents, underlies their intention of dumping the concept of ‘nation states in the dustbin of history. For “Open Societies” to prevail, nation states have to be sacrificed and all references to patriotism, nationalism and identity be eradicated from human subconscious. In the US, the Trump Administration will not permit liberals to fast-track illegals to voting citizens, but in Europe this can and will be done before the next round of elections. This could be the starting point of writing the final chapter of ‘The History of Europe’. Only European populists can prevent “The End of” Europe and ensure Europe remains a part of “Western Civilization”.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

 

HEALTHCARE COSTS.

During President Obama’s watch, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Sens. Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and other progressives in Congress were dozing when many financial institutions, utilities and other businesses forced an ‘arbitration’ clause in their customer contracts. This clause denies customers their day in court, and compels them to settle disputes through ‘Arbitration Boards’ staffed by appointees of corporations against whom the complaints were filed. These “kangaroo courts” saves corporations money in liability insurance and litigation costs while customers are normally steamrolled by arbitrary settlements dictated to them by non-neutral arbitrators.

Arbitration is a cost effective alternative to settling disputes and can be a fair process only when the arbitrators are neutral, principled and trusted by all parties involved in the dispute.

One of the many reasons why American Healthcare costs are atrociously high is the cost of liability insurance. Healthcare providers are forced to practice “defensive” medicine to reduce their liability insurance rates, resulting in unnecessary tests and procedures to protect themselves from financial ruin. Republicans wanting to replace “Obamacare” can make health insurance more affordable should they insert an ‘Arbitration’ clause in health insurance policies. Selling this concept to the public will depend upon the trust factor of the arbitrators. Arbitration Boards set up under the auspices of the Surgeon General to include representatives from the American Medical Association, the Pharmaceutical industry and possibly the ACLU could ensure a positive reception to this idea from the public, especially when they see substantial savings in their health insurance costs.

Americans with health insurance must have noticed that their insurance providers cater to their policy holders in over 15 different languages! This buffet of languages adds to their expenses which are ultimately borne by policy holders. Restricting language usage to English only will further reduce costs. It is time to replace “Obamacare” with a better and more affordable alternative.

 

RUSSIA, FRIEND OR FOE?

President Trump inherited from President Obama “A Mad, Mad, Mad World”. ISIS, Iran, Russia, and China worried President Obama, but what gave him nightmares was North Korea. He and the Foreign Policy Establishment believed, hoped and prayed China would rein in the nuclear ambitions of the Kim dynasty. China has profited enormously from globalization and free trade thanks to the Establishment’s “Beggar Thy Nation” foreign and trade policies. The North Korean economy is on Chinese life support and it is in China’s self-interest that her client state remains an unpredictable, belligerent, nuclear armed menace so she can use the North Korean ‘wild card’ to ensure unfettered access to American markets. To counter North Korean threats without Chinese help, President Trump must cultivate another ally bordering this region to bring sanity and security to this global hot spot.

The Foreign Policy Establishment and their allies in the “Dump Trump” Republican Establishment simply cannot visualize Russia as an ally against North Korea. For too long they have allowed anti-Russian dogma to bind them in strait jackets and they refuse to think outside the box. The Foreign Policy Establishment’s failed ‘wait and see’, ‘kicking the can’, ‘head in the sand’ approach have embolden the North Koreans to become increasingly ballistic. Conducting war exercises with allies, besides being expensive, has not worked in the past since it only makes the DPRK more belligerent. Vladimir’s port city of Vladivostok is within spitting distance of the North Korean border and well publicized goodwill visits by the Sixth Fleet to this port would alter Chinese and North Korean behavior and perhaps embolden anti Kim Jong UN dissidents to act. The President will need all options on the table and friendship with Russia gives him more room to maneuver; an advantage previous Presidents dealing with the DPRK never had. The nuclear clock is ticking.

 

TWEETER-IN-CHIEF.

Even before Mr. Trump became the Republican nominee, the Establishment media assaulted him with a barrage of personal attacks. During the elections it became impossible to differentiate between the long knives of the Republican, the Democratic and the Media Establishments. Since the elections, the “Dump Trump” Republicans and Democrats appear rudderless and are awaiting instructions from their donors. The liberal media has inserted itself into this political vacuum, and has become the consultants, advisors and the ‘spine’ of the opposition. They are the chief proponents of the “Disrupt”, “Resist”, “Bureaucratic Sabotage” and “Impeach” undemocratic flamethrowers challenging the very concept of American democracy. The Fourth Estate is not defending democracy; it has become the Trojan Horse crucifying American democracy.

The biased liberal media has forsaken its responsibility to be the impartial medium of communications between the White House and the “deplorables”. This is because the Liberal Establishment preaches democracy but refuses to practice it. They had a foolproof system of crowning their chosen candidate in the Democratic nomination process with their “Super Delegates” rules and tried to impose a “Vote your Conscience” delegate rule in the Republican primaries to strip the Republican nominee of his victory. Had Mr. Trump not won the elections, the democratic primaries of both parties would be replaced by coronations! This is the epitome of voter suppression and voter fraud! Is the goal of the Elite Establishment to create a “Fake” democracy?

Liberals do not understand the President because they are still undecided on whether to take him “literally” or “specifically”. Figuratively or realistically? The President connects with his supporters “emotionally”, speaking authentically from his gut to their American hearts and they understand him perfectly without the need of fake filters distorting his message. His tweets unhinges the media as they are disrupted from pushing their agenda and are forced to surrender the daily news cycle responding to him communicating directly with his base. Recently the President called and tweeted that the media are “the enemy of the American people.” for which he is being crucified. The media has a diabolical habit of depicting law breakers as victims of criminal law enforcement agencies. Reasonable law abiding people all over the world know that respect for and observance of laws are the cornerstones of civilizations. Making victims or heroes of law breakers and criminals overturns the very concept of civil societies based on law and order and is a recipe for lawlessness and carnage. The liberal media is at war with and is “the enemy of the American people.”

CONTEMPT OF THE CONCIETED CLASS

 

 

Trust, built on reporting the unvarnished truth, is the currency of the media. Public trust in the news business had a 91% approval rating and it prospered when American businesses competed for consumers by advertising their products and services in reputable news outlets. The lure of advertising revenue changed the business model of news organizations. Instead of being “the eyes and ears” of the public, the mainstream media corrupted themselves to become the Establishment’s megaphone. They championed free trade, globalism and monopolies and as factories moved offshore, small ‘Mom and Pop’ stores were replaced by Big Box conglomerates. Jobs were exported, workers pink-slipped, local businesses on Main Street shuttered, drying up advertising dollars for local newspapers. Most small and mid-sized cities that had two or more newspapers now have only one local paper, reporting local news, sports and obituaries. National and international news along with Op-Eds are outsourced to The Associated Press, Washington Post and NY Times which gives these news cartels immense power to indoctrinate the public. Every American, from the President and the sheltered Establishment down to those languishing in homeless shelters form their opinions of world and national events from a truth-bending media whose approval ratings have plummeted to 30%.

For the past few decades, the media’s focus has been to promote and defend the Establishment’s “Beggar thy Nation” agenda. They do this by slanting news reports with biased narratives to mislead the public. When the President spoke of American nationalism, media narrators contorted this to mean “White Nationalism”. His “Make America great Again” slogan was mutilated to misinform African-Americans of taking America back to the Jim Crow era. This is divisive and dangerous ‘tribal politics’, the politics of hate and anger that they ignited and fan, then use their megaphones to blame the President and his supporters for creating the “us”, “them” and “others” abyss. For ‘fake’ news, misinformation and disinformation to be digested as fact based news, the media has to resort to what French philosopher, Charles Baudelaire stated, “The devil’s finest trick is to persuade you he does not exist.” The mainstream media is the Fake News Media who masquerade as the gatekeepers of the gospel truth. They called Mr. Trump ‘Nazi’ and ‘anti-Semitic’ ignoring the fact that his daughter and son in law are Orthodox Jews. These hateful words, among many others, are codes or dog whistles for liberals to flood the “Letters to the Editor” section of their local papers with anti-Trump bile. Americans, whom the Fake News media fail to brainwash, are contemptuously denounced as the “unwashed masses”.

Mr. Trump won the elections with a comfortable margin in the Electoral College in spite of Mrs. Clinton spending almost twice as much on the elections. By claiming a “landslide”, he is needling pollsters and the media who were 91% sure he would lose the elections. Mrs. Clinton’s failure to shatter the ‘glass ceiling’ left the Democratic Party shattered. They are now still in the process of deciding whether to return to their ‘Progressive’ roots representing the ‘deplorable’ underclass or to comfort the liberal Elites. Money will prevail. Liberals will plot to dissolve the Electoral College. The coastal Elites will ally themselves with hyphenated urban Americans who will be showered with rights, benefits and entitlements. The latest give-away was by NY Mayor Bill de Blasio, to foreign born taxi drivers, exempting them from learning and taking their licensing tests in English. Liberal Elites see their road to the White House is by winning a plurality of voters in coastal and urban areas while marginalizing rural and working Americans in fly over states.

With the Democrats in disarray, opposition to the President-Elect is being orchestrated by the Establishment’s Fake News Media. They are trying to delegitimize the election by assaulting representative democracy as envisioned by the Electoral College. They blame social media for swaying the elections with ‘fake news’, in an attempt to malign this information sharing media and redirect advertising dollars back to ‘traditional’ news outlets. They are desperately searching for excuses as to why intellectuals living in bubbles atop ivory towers failed to take the pulse of unrepresented Americans and were humiliated by their election forecasts.

American Intelligence agencies gave the Fake News media an opening to blame the Russians (???) for bungling their election punditry and they ran with this story (See previous blog, Hacking Controversy). They have picked on almost every cabinet nominee for their inexperience in government, implying that politics should be the domain of professional politicians. They criticize the wealth of some nominees, again implying that there is no place in government for successful people. By reading tarot cards and tea leaves they have concluded that the President’s cabinet will only enlarge the ‘swamp’, and further enrich themselves at the expense of “forgotten” and “deplorable” Americans, an obvious attempt to raise funds for anti-Trump organizations like the ACLU, while driving a wedge between the President and his supporters. They fail to understand that the President and his cabinet picks have the quintessential American “can do” attitude and spirit, and changing the culture and rules of Washington are the required first steps to return American sovereignty back to Americans. Judging by the venom and hostility directed at the President, it appears that the old Washington Establishment are wetting their beds at night, while the new Administration charts a new era for Americans.

Attempts by media charlatans to create a rift between the President and his base has not gained much traction. Now they are trying to sow distrust and acrimony between the President and within his inner circle. They charged the President with nepotism when Jared Kushner became a Presidential advisor, now they gripe that Mr. Kushner is being overshadowed by Steve Bannon. Inciting “turf-wars” among the senior staff and fabricating leaks to imply the presence of disloyal staffers are activities the devious media excels in. They want to hurt the President because they want him to fail.

Liberals plan to cripple the Presidency by filing multiple lawsuits under the Emoluments clause, for nepotism, for conflict of interests and challenges to his Executive orders. Media Mandarins and the Elitist ‘Old Guard’ are hatching plots to impeach the President. Their acidic, hyperbolic and hysterical opposition to the President is an assault on democracy which they destabilize, discredit and undermine, then, like the devil, lay the blame on foreign adversaries. All the billions of dollars invested by the US in promoting democracy worldwide is being wasted by the media led opposition to the democratically elected President of the United States. The Media who claims to be the defenders of democratic values are giving American democracy a black eye, much to the delight and amusement of America’s enemies.

MSNBC’s talk show host, Chris Matthews, appearing on 1/31/2017, threw a spitball when he contemptuously compared the President to a monarch, “the Romanovs”. What exactly was he implying? Any student of history knows that the Romanov dynasty ended when Czar Nicholas and his family were butchered during the Russian Revolution. Just how low can the “Mainstream Media” go?

HACKING CONTROVERSY

 

Before Americans draw their own conclusions about who are these cyber-snoops and what were their motives, they must realize that the Establishment media is looking for any and all excuses to explain why their election forecasts were humiliatingly wrong. The American Intelligence Community (IC) has given the liberal media an excuse to cover up their incompetence by stating with “high confidence”, that the Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta’s servers. The IC also stated the hackings did not interfere with the voting systems and “did not change any vote tallies.” The Liberals have run with the hacking half of this story, blown it out of proportion and have muddied and muddled the facts to misinform the public that the elections were hacked, and Russia tilted the elections to Mr. Trump which makes him an “illegitimate” President-Elect. This is “Fake News” and Congressman John Lewis, like millions of gullible Americans, have permitted themselves to be brainwashed.

In the fall of 2015, British Intelligence alerted the IC that the DNC’s server had been compromised. The FBI telephoned the DNC’s computer desk manned by a “low level contract employee”, possibly working for CrowdStrike. Why this contract employee ignored the call from the FBI and not reported it to the DNC hierarchy remains a mystery. During the Democratic nomination primaries, Sen. Sanders frequently complained that the DNC was blatantly favoring Mrs. Clinton. The media did not investigate his concerns and when WikiLeaks dumped a batch of DNC emails, confirming the Senator’s fears, MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson blurted “We knew about this.” The media, instead of covering the nomination was covering up the shenanigans of the DNC to sway the nomination to the Establishment’s preselected candidate. After what happened at the DNC, the media, with its deep roots and sources within the Clinton campaign should have known about and reported on Mr. Podesta’s controversial leadership of the Campaign Committee. Again, WikiLeaks, by exposing the Podesta emails would not have made headlines had the media diligently covered the news instead of covering it up. WikiLeaks did not publish lies, propaganda or fake news, it simply published facts, and if the elections were swayed by the truth, it is a triumph of virtue, which secular liberals find unpalatable.

The dual intrusions prompted the IC to want to investigate the hacked computers and servers, which the Democrats prevented them from doing. Instead, the forensic investigations were conducted by the Democrat’s cyber security firm, CrowdStrike. The firm’s co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, a Russian born immigrant, has a grudge against the Russians, who he believes, tried to kill his father, a nuclear physicist, by wanting to send him to Chernobyl to help clean up the area after the nuclear disaster. He also wanted to drive a wedge between the US and Russia because he feared Mr. Trump would improve relations with Moscow. His investigations of the servers led him to “believe” the culprits were Russians because the malware used had been previously used by them. He gave the two different origins of the intrusions monikers with a Russian flavor, “Fancy Bear” and “Cozy Bear”, creating the perception that the Russians were involved. Cyber intelligence is an extremely sophisticated science and had the Russians done such a sloppy job of leaving their fingerprints implicating the Kremlin, heads would be rolling in Moscow.

The IC has “high confidence” in an investigation they were prevented from participating in and carried out by an anti-Russian outside contractor who wanted to embarrass the Kremlin. Their Report has numerous ‘wiggle room’ words such as “believe”, “assess”, “conclude” and “judge”, which not only invites skepticism but also, ridicule. The President acted on this report by expelling 35 Russian diplomats and Mr. Putin responded by inviting American embassy staff and their families to a Russian Orthodox Christmas Day party. Mr. Putin ridiculed the President and his IC Chiefs with this gesture.

While the politically appointed heads of the IC repeatedly insist they are nonpartisan and apolitical, they and their predecessors had penned a joint letter denouncing Mr. Trump as “unfit” for the Presidency, an obvious signal to influence the election in Mrs. Clinton’s favor. A few years earlier, they removed Gen. Flynn from the IC because the General’s policies and politics were not in sync with the ‘group think’ that was enforced by the Obama Administration. The bad chemistry between the President-Elect and Gen. Flynn is confined to only the politically appointed partisan Directors of the IC, and does not extend to the brave and hardworking staff and personnel of the IC, which the media is deceptively implying.

Among the many dots the IC connected to “conclude” that the Russians wanted to tilt the elections to Mr. Trump is the absence of any malicious comments about him leaked to WikiLeaks. How could the leakers further malign Mr. Trump when the liberal media had stooped in the gutter to destroy him? How could they compete in being more hostile to him than liberal Americans? The IC then contradicted itself by stating that the Russians never expected Mr. Trump to win and had collected ‘opposition research’ on Mrs. Clinton with which they planned to cripple her Presidency.

After the elections, the IC showed the President and the President-Elect an unverified dossier that had been circulating among the media and in Washington “for months”. These 35 pages of ‘opposition research’ was fabricated either by an American company, Fusion GPS, specializing in gutter politics, for the anti-Trump Republican Establishment, or by an ex-British snoop claiming that he obtained this from the Russians. The President-Elect is furious with the CIA for leaking this dossier which the CIA has denied. This is the same Director, whose agency, hacked the US Senate in 2014, then repeatedly denied doing so and finally apologized for assessing Senate computers.

Many Americans fear that the Russians are attempting to undermine democracy. Why would any adversary waste their resources now to cripple American democracy? The Alt-Left media, the liberals and the democrats are torpedoing American democratic traditions and doing this dirty job for America’s antagonists. America’s enemies are not orchestrating the “illegitimate President”, “constant opposition” and “inauguration boycotts” protests, so called “patriotic” Americans, who believe burning the flag is “free speech” and displaying the flag is “hate speech” are sneering at and smearing democracy.

It is the duty of the IC to connect all the dots and explain what happened and why this occurred. The evidence of Russian fingerprints implicating the Kremlin, produced by an anti-Russian, independent contractor and not corroborated by the IC or anyone else has not caused cyber-heads to roll in Moscow. Swiss cheese, reflected in a mirror enveloped in smoke, is not a ‘smoking gun’.

REFLECTIONS ON THE ELECTIONS

 

DEMOCRATIC BLUE FIREWALL STATES

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign had the audacity to take the votes of blue collar workers for granted. These democratic voters had built their firewall to protect themselves from the Wall Street Establishment that had been trampling their jobs, their incomes and their futures. Mrs. Clinton had transformed their Democratic Party by becoming the champion of Wall Street Globalists, the college educated affluent and the advocates of open borders. Her Democratic Party ignored the economic plight of American workers and pursued identity politics in search of the new demographics of diversity and hyphenated Americans. Her focus groups failed her when she described Trump supporters as “a basket of deplorables” not realizing she was also contemptuously talking down to her own democratic base. She betrayed and alienated her firewall Blue States by running as the Firewall for Wall Street and the status quo against the ‘Movement for Change’. As Sen. Sanders had said, “She has bad judgement.”

 

KARMA

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND; YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 signed by President Clinton unfairly targeted young African-Americans, incarcerating them for extended periods for minor offences. The Private Prison cartel had contributed to the President’s campaign and had lobbied for this law which was authored by then Democratic Senator, Joe Biden. Neither the liberal ACLU nor the Black Democratic political organizations objected to or criticized the reintroduction of this Jim Crow law.

The first political victim of this law was VP Al Gore in 2008. He lost Florida to George Bush by about six hundred votes. The Democratic Establishment indoctrinated the public into believing that Ralph Nader and the Supreme Court were responsible for this loss. Al Gore lost because over forty thousand potential Democratic voters were locked up in jails and locked out from voting for the Democratic ticket. The Clintons and their Crime Control Act gave the 2000 election to George Bush.

Among the many reasons she lost the 2016 elections is that Blacks were not enthusiastic about her and failed to turn out and vote. During her stump speeches she would repeatedly tell her supporters that she would reform and fix the broken Criminal Justice system, unintentionally reminding African-American males of her role in enacting this law to benefit the Private Prison cartel. This law deprived Al Gore the Presidency in 2000 and shattered her ambition of breaking the Glass Ceiling in 2016.

 

CONSERVEITISM, LIBERALISM, AND AMERICANISM

What the Establishment media disdainfully refers to as Trumpism is Americanism. The President-Elect (P-E) ran under the Republican banner, and by disdaining Free Trade and open borders, he united a large segment of the Democratic and Republican working class; the ‘invisible’ Americans marginalized by both political parties. The Conservative and Liberal Establishments have used and will continue using the Media’s megaphone to argue that in a Republic that enshrines ‘Representative Democracy’, the ‘we know better crowd’ of Establishment intellectuals and the Moneyed Elite are entitled to rule the underclass from the top down. The P-E’s wing of the Republican Party, which believes in American economic nationalism has been deceptively labelled by the media as “White Nationalists” appealing to the ‘lunatic fringe’ of racists, bigots and ‘deplorables’. The Establishment media’s hostility to Americanism is because it is a grass roots movement of “We the People” who attest that political power originates from the bottom up and government must work for and represent all Americans.

The question now is will the Republican Party represent Main Street ‘makers’ or Wall Street exploiters? After the initial ‘honeymoon’ the P-E will face opposition from the “Dump Trump” Conservative Republicans beholden to Moneyed Establishment ‘takers’ who will sabotage his goal to “drain the swamp”. Watching his back will be Steve Bannon who the Media has demonized as “Nazi”, “racist” and “anti-Semitic”. Bannon had Jews working with him at Breitbart, the company has an office in Jerusalem and Alan Dershowitz has defended him against accusations that he is an anti-Semite. What the Establishment Media (purposely?) fails to grasp is that he, like the P-E, are anti-Establishment, American nationalists who do not believe that Americans have to be sacrificed on the altar of Globalism for Corporate profits.

 

NASTIEST CAMPAIGN EVER

The Media had no intellectual arguments, facts, nor even a fig leaf to defend the status quo. The only alternative they had to protect the Establishment was to persuade and convince voters that misery, helplessness and hopelessness were preferable to Mr. Trump, the agent of change. The Executive Editor of the NY Times pronounced Mr. Trump as too dangerous a candidate to deserve fair coverage and who had to be destroyed. His agenda gave license to the Establishment media to lie, abuse and demonize Mr. Trump as a lunatic unfit to become President. The media ignored policies and issues to indulge in slander, slurs, and fiction. The nastiest campaign ever was conducted not by Mr. Trump, but by the NY Times who also birthed “Fake News”.

Establishment media is now blaming Facebook, Google and the internet about “Fake News” to divert attention from the falsehoods they had disseminated and to lure social media advertisers back to advertising in mainstream media. Mr. Trump had said the NY Times was “failing’. This newspaper was flooded with cancelled subscriptions during the campaign for its biased reporting. However, to refute Mr. Trump’s “failing NY Times” charge, it claims that since the elections, they have fifty thousand new subscribers. This can be technically and legally true, but left unsaid is that they are now selling subscriptions at a 70% discount! Inflating circulation numbers is their way to con advertisers to pay more for their advertisements. The NY Times has a problem telling the complete story, it has a dilemma differentiating between black and white and has to shade the truth. The moniker “Gray Lady” for this publication is as telling as it is appropriate.

GOD BLESSED AMERICA!

 

 

American ‘nationalists’, ‘nativists’, and “basket of deplorables”, the “God and Country” patriots, have taken their country back from the Media-Political-Elite cartel that had rigged the political and financial systems. This election was not between a Republican and a Democrat. It was a referendum on the status quo. When over 70% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong tracks, they wanted change in Washington. Mrs. Clinton, the preselected Establishment candidate, whose campaign was financed by Corporate ‘takers’, and who was endorsed by establishment enablers and the neo-con media, ran to perpetuate the status quo. Both, Sen. Sanders and Mr. Trump ran to shake up Washington. The Senator was deprived of the Democratic nomination by the Democratic Party Establishment with their ‘Super Delegate’ rules, the DNC Chair actively scuttling his campaign and DNC heavyweight Donna Brazile passing CNN’s debate questions to Mrs. Clinton. The Republican Establishment’s “Dump Trump” gang led by neo-cons Bill Kristol and Dan Senor tried to change Delegate Rules and wrest the nomination from Mr. Trump, but Party Chairman, Reince Priebus, stopped this maneuver knowing this would anger the Republican base and destroy the Party.

Mrs. Clinton, the Establishment’s anointed candidate was uninspiring, untrustworthy, and plagued by scandals. She was a “Pay to Play” Politician of Fortune, handpicked to defend the status quo. The Establishment media understood the only way to safeguard Establishment interests was to convince voters who demanded change that the status quo was preferable to the agent of change, Mr. Trump. To do this, they had to demonize and destroy the anti- Establishment candidate. It was the media that steered this Presidential contest into an insult driven, bitter, negative campaign of personal attacks, knowing that poking and provoking Mr. Trump would get him to counter punch. The media purposely refused to see Mr. Trump appealing to American nationalism and insinuated he was appealing to “white’ nationalism and labeled him a racist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic. (His daughter and son-in-law are Orthodox Jews) The media weaponized identity politics, fanning the racial divide, steered clear of policies and positions in favor of misinformation, rumors and fake news, which they then blamed on Facebook and the internet. Why did it take WikiLeaks to inform the public about the DNC torpedoing the Sanders campaign when the media chose to suppress this news? Also why has the media ignored the Volcker-Peterson Op-ed stating that $1.5 TRILLION is being siphoned off annually in tax avoidance from the US Treasury by the Establishment through their political enablers?

This election has seismically transformed both, the Republican and the Democratic Parties. Mr. Trump ran as an American under the Republican banner. He brought together the working class of both Parties and made his wing of the Party the political home of rural and Main Street Americans. In stark contrast, Mrs. Clinton, a Hamptons-Hollywood elitist, masqueraded as a progressive populist to con Sander’s supporters, then ran as the candidate of affluent college graduates, promoting feminism, diversity, multiculturalism, multilingualism and open borders, ignoring and alienating the Democratic “Blue Wall States” working class voters. She lost because her private email server did not serve her Presidential ambitions, her allies in the media squandered their creditability (The NY Times has apologized for their unfair and partisan election coverage) and the President’s coattails could not erase her “Predator” remarks that caused many black males to waste the prime of their lives in prison.

Patriots who have taken their country back must remain vigilant. The Establishment has over 1.5 Trillion reasons not to cede control of America and is plotting to topple the President-Elect. The protests are media inspired. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes invited Michael Moore to his show on 11/11/2016, and encouraged him to call for more and larger protests. In Chicago, African-Americans were protesting the police shooting death of Joshua Beal, which television networks deceptively covered as an anti-Trump protest. On Bloomberg Television’s Charlie Rose show aired on 11/11/2016 liberal media intellectuals declared that both parties restructure Super Delegate rules to ensure only preselected Establishment nominees be allowed to run for the Presidency. The NY Times, whose editors boasted “we set the agenda for the country” had a full page advertisement from the ACLU threatening the President-Elect not to even try implementing some of his campaign promises. An opinion writer suggested impeding his every move and force him to resign. The Establishment Media will escalate their vendetta against the President-Elect because they do not want him to de rig the political and financial systems and govern America for the benefit of all Americans. The Media-Political-Establishment complex wants to rule America to enrich themselves by trampling citizens in their own homeland.

It is up to “the Basket of Deplorable” patriots to guard against the Media-Political-Establishment Ruling Class from taking over this country again.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

ELECTION EVE SHORT TAKES

 

COMEY’S CONSCIENCE

When the FBI first initiated their investigations into Mrs. Clinton’s private server and emails, she and her staffers were asked whether there were any other emails pertinent to their review that had not been deleted and bleached. Assured that all existing emails were given to the FBI, the investigators were uneasy when five staffers pleaded the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer questions. Based on the emails made available to the FBI, Mr. Comey informed Congress and the nation in July that although Mrs. Clinton and her staffers were “extremely careless” no one should be prosecuted for unintentionally mishandling classified information. He ‘closed’ the inquiry but did not ‘conclude’ this case, pledging to keep the public and Congress up-to-date and be transparent should new information be discovered. When previously unknown emails surfaced in Huma Abedin’s laptop, the FBI Director, knew that the President and the Justice Department did not want this information made public this close to the elections. He is aware that the President and the Justice Department, for political reasons have stalled the investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Ignoring FBI protocols and traditions the Director has honored his pledge to the nation by being transparent about the cache of emails discovered in Ms. Abedin’s laptop. Mr. Comey is an American public servant who knows that his ultimate bosses are the American people who pay his salary and who need to know the truth before casting their votes.

 

RIGGED ELECTIONS

The Establishment media is rigging this election. The time honored tradition of reporting authenticated facts and impartially reporting the news to allow the public to make up their own minds, and build public trust in the Fourth Estate has been dishonored. Years of building the media as an institution promoting democracy, discourse, debate and as a dependable source of information has been guttered during this election season. Opinions, speculations, and assumptions have skewered the news and the partisan biases brazenly displayed by the media cartel have morphed the free press into a propaganda machine bent on brainwashing the public. The emergence of a Media-Political-Establishment complex is a threat to democracy, freedom and fair play. In this election the media cartel is behaving as an unregulated Super Pac for the Establishment’s preselected candidate, giving billions of dollars in free air time to pulverize Mr. Trump and spit venom on his supporters. It is obvious this display of media power has silenced the Federal Election Commission, who should be investigating this propaganda machine as an unregulated Super Pac.

 

PRESIDENT’S 57% APPROVAL RATINGS???

Who were these pollsters and what were they smoking? This puffed up percentage pulled out of an exhaled cloud of pot is preposterous. The media propaganda machine is brainwashing the public into believing America is on the right track, the President’s policies have created prosperity at home and his foreign policies have made the world safer with respect and admiration for America at all-time highs. (Pun intended) The media is propagating that the President deserves a third term and voters should embrace the status quo and elect the ‘self-interest above country’ Establishment’s preselected candidate. Facts are under President Obama, tax avoidance costs the US Treasury $1.5 Trillion annually, inequality has widened, there are more under-employed and part time workers, and more Americans and Non-Americans are on food stamps. Racial tensions are simmering and Obamacare which started off on subsidy-support is now on subsidy-steroids. Abroad, the President has embroiled the US in three additional conflicts (Libya, Syria and Yemen), and his “risk averse” policies that telegraph weakness, has licensed Putin’s adventurism. Turkey, an ally is flirting with Russia, and Trans Pacific partners, Malaysia and the Philippines are now in China’s orbit. The President’s ratings would be under water but for die hard democrats who judge him not by his accomplishments, but by the fact that he made history by being the first African-American to occupy the White House.

 

2008 HOUSING BUBBLE

Early during this election cycle, the media unearthed an old video clip taken just prior to the collapse of the housing market that led to the 2008 financial crisis. It showed Mr. Trump saying that if the housing bubble were to burst, he could pick up properties on the cheap. When this video was replayed in 2016, Sen. Elizabeth Warren threw a fit, and castigated Mr. Trump for seeing opportunity on the backs of families who could lose their homes. Neither she, nor the media, nor the politicians who received ‘talking points’ to blast Mr. Trump, bothered to inform the public, why, for the first time in American history, the housing market crumbled. The Clintons relaxed mortgage loan requirements creating a surge in demand for homes. The scam mortgage of zero percent interest and no principal payment for the first year was hawked by the media which any second rate financial advisor could have sensed was a disaster waiting to happen. Financial watchdogs in the administration and economists writing for the media could have and should have seen the embryo of the housing bubble, where workers were lured into buying homes they could not afford. NAFTA exacerbated the problems of cash strapped homeowners by exporting their jobs to Mexico and turning their mortgage documents into junk bonds. The unintended consequences of loosening credit and mortgage standards caused the housing bubble that sank the financial markets in 2008. The recession happened during President Bush’s watch, but the fingerprints on this crisis belong to the Clintons.

MORE SHORT TAKES

 

“I KNOW MORE ABOUT ISIS THAN THE GENERALS.”

President Regan’s policies led to the fragmentation of the Soviet Union which happened during President George H.W. Bush’s term. Demands for a “Peace Dividend” led President Clinton to cut defense spending. The Defense Department made a colossal mistake in eliminating its covert ground operations in the Middle East and outsourcing these tasks to regional allies. These allies had their own agendas, fed the US with disinformation and ‘doctored’ intelligence about WMD’s and manipulated the US into an unwarranted war in Iraq. Questionable intelligence from allies have embroiled the US in Syria, Libya and Yemen. When ISIS first sprouted in Iraq, the US Commander, Gen. Flynn, foresaw the threat they posed. However, “intelligence” from allies who wanted the US to destroy the Assad regime in Syria downplayed ISIS, causing the President to laugh off ISIS as a “JV team”. Gen. Flynn differed with the National Security establishment on their refusal to take ISIS seriously, and was removed from his command. He is the most knowledgeable person in the US about the inner workings of ISIS. He studied its founder, Zarqawi, tracked him and ordered the drone strike that killed him. He knows the tactics, strategy, treachery and tricks, totally devoid of humanity, Zarqawi legated to his followers, now known as ISIS. Gen. Flynn, the person who best understands ISIS is Mr. Trump’s military advisor. Mr. Trump has the best possible information on ISIS.

Readers must see the movie, “Eye in the Sky”. Politically correct bureaucrats controlling the military are more interested in conducting propaganda wars than in defeating the enemy. The US, a military superpower has been in Afghanistan for 15 and in Iraq for 13 years. Propaganda wars simply bogs the military in quicksand, denying them the battlefield victories that ends wars and permanently brings the troops home. American generals need the political leadership to destroy the enemy instead of waging unending propaganda wars.

 

HILLARY, IF PUTIN IS DANGEROUS THAN WHY???

The Establishment media and their candidate are deceptively trying to link Mr. Trump to Russian financial interests and allege that Mr. Putin wants a Trump Presidency. This is to hide the fact that the Clintons have enriched themselves directly from Mr. Putin. In June, 2010, President Clinton received a $500,000.00 speaking fee from Renaissance Capital, a bank linked to Mr. Putin, while Rusatom, the state owned atomic energy corporation was negotiating to buy Canada’s Uranium One. This deal had to be approved by the US State Dept., as Uranium One had mining rights in Wyoming. Only four months after President Clinton’s half a million dollar speech, the Clinton State Dept., approved this deal knowing that the Russians were trying to monopolize global production of uranium. Mr. Putin would rather deal with a Politician of Fortune in the Oval Office, than one concerned about national security and strategic interests. He knows the “culture of corruption” in Washington will destroy America.

 

CONTAINING CHINA

China’s aggressive cyberattacks and militarizing her artificial islands in the South China Sea have rightfully raised eyebrows in Washington. Vessels from the 7th. Fleet have been deployed to this area, where US aircrafts are routinely buzzed. However, imports from China flow into the US, and the half a Trillion dollar US trade deficit that subtracts from American GDP while adding to China’s, financially weakens the US while strengthening China. The US is indirectly financing Chinese adventurism with its massive trade deficits. The US must either sacrifice its financial, national security and strategic interests or the profits free traders derive from the one way trade with China. The self-interests of free traders, structured by their lobbyists and the Politicians of Fortune enabling them puts national security at risk. Pacific Rim partners, the Philippines and Malaysia are drifting into China’s orbit as they can see that when the US is not bothered about defending its own security interests, how can they trust the US to defend theirs? Containing China will remain a myth as long as the pro status quo ‘self above country’ Establishment rules America.

 

CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE

A few weeks ago Mr. Trump stated “There was a time Flynt manufactured cars and the water in Mexico was not safe to drink. Today Mexico manufactures cars and the water in Flynt is not safe.” A few days back the media reported that Chicago’s public water fountains had to be shut off due to high levels of led. There will be a daily drip, drip of reports of America’s crumbling infrastructure. Amtrak cannot afford to install Positive Train Controls, then spends millions clearing tracks after an accident and millions more paying damages to the injured and to the families of those who died. Meanwhile the media either ignores or suppresses the Volcker-Peterson Op-Ed published in the NY Times on 10/22/2016 stating that the US Treasury is losing $1.5 Trillion annually in tax avoidance manipulated by the well off, their lobbyists and their enablers in Congress. The pro status quo Establishment wants this tax amnesty to be perpetual. The ‘self above country’ crowd do not want to pay their fair share. Unless Americans vote for change, the culture of corruption will continue and there will be no money to repair infrastructure. Earned entitlements, and all other government programs beneficial to Main Street Americans will be chopped, the American Dream will be exported to China, and the very foundation of America, the Constitution, will be re-written.

SHORT TAKES

 

 

1.5 TRILLION DOLLAR QUESTION!

The hacked emails released by WikiLeaks are small firecrackers compared to the bombshell Op-Ed written by Paul Volcker, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve and Peter Peterson, a former Secretary of Commerce. This article was published in the NY Times on 10/22/2016. These financial experts state that the federal tax systems is “prone to political manipulations” and “filled with exclusions, deductions, exemptions and preferential rates” that “cost about $1.5 trillion each year and disproportionately benefit the well off.” The Establishment and their political enablers are defrauding the US Treasury, i.e., American citizens of $1.5 Trillion annually and this is not “Breaking News”? The media is committing journalistic malpractice by suppressing this revelation from Main Street Americans to avoid embarrassing the Financial and Political Establishments. Instead they print and broadcast ‘news’ about Trump giving little kids of illegal immigrants’ nightmares. The “Trojan Horse” media filters (or censors?) the news to keep Americans in the dark! $1 .5 Trillion being diverted annually from the US Treasury should rank America as the most corrupt country in the world!

 

TRUMP AND HIS TAXES

The biased media had a blast accusing Trump of paying little or no federal taxes. The charges against him were misleading and misinformation. The media has given itself the power to smear people in the court of public opinion, pronounce them guilty and destroy reputations. Fact is Trump has most of his assets in property and property taxes have to be paid irrespective if the owner or holding company makes a profit or a loss. There is no escaping property taxes as properties can get slapped with liens when these taxes become delinquent. IRS rules allow property taxes paid to be deducted from the federal income tax. Most tax filers pay little in property taxes and more in federal taxes, while landlords pay most of their taxes in property taxes, which is then deducted from their federal taxes. A rough guesstimate is Mr. Trump has paid between $200 and $300 million in property taxes annually.

 

JUDGE CURIEL

Mr. Trump did not want this Judge to preside over his case fearing the Judge would not give him a fair and impartial trial. His fears were grounded in fact, as the Judge had instructed a plaintiff to file his case under the RICO Act, a law specifically designed to try Mafia mobsters. Trump also said the Judge should recuse himself because of the Judge’s Mexican ancestry and Trump’s position on illegal immigration. The words “biased” or “racist” were never uttered. Yet, the media went rouge on Trump and everybody hostile to his candidacy labelled him a “racist”.

The President’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland is not getting a confirmation hearing from the Senate. Do Republican Senators fear a liberal bias from a liberal Judge and fear he would not rule impartially from the Bench? Or are the Senators anti-Semitic? The media does not abuse these Senators as anti-Semitic and biased. Then why the double standard for Mr. Trump? Simply because they fear his message of changing the status quo and returning sovereignty back to the American people.

 

GROPING ALLEGATIONS

The media and their puppeteers in the Establishment have to keep the $1.5 Trillion annual Tax Amnesty that tax avoiders receive from their Politicians of Fortune off the news cycle. What better way to do this and inflate ratings and readership? Sex scandals! Any political junkie can see that David Brock, who politically assassinates Mrs. Clinton’s opponents is orchestrating these unproven allegations. He along with Democratic firebrand and flamethrower, Gloria Allred are giving Hillary supporters their fifteen minutes of fame and perhaps a cushy job at the Clinton Foundation, where Clinton’s Benghazi advisor is parked. The “Trojan Horse” media is well aware of the dubious reputations of these charlatans, but when rumor raises ratings, rumor reigns. There will be a daily drip, drip of these Clinton Foundation job seekers. Expect CNN’s Don Lemon to allege Trump squeezed him and Anderson Cooper and MSNBC’s Rachel Madcow say Trump had hit on them. The media has to do everything possible to keep the $1.5 Trillion diverted away from the Treasury every year, off the news cycle.

 

“I WILL FIX IT.”

Trump does not have to explain to his non college educated base what he means. They understand exactly what he says—–‘I will provide the leadership to fix problems’. It is the college educated media that fails to or pretends not to understand this and castigate him for being an egomaniac and narcissist. Also, he uses the phrase ‘big league’ which the media purposely or stupidly reconstructs as ‘bigly’ in their constant efforts to ridicule him. The “Trojan Horse” has a motive to misquote him and to misinform the public. They and their Establishment handlers fear him and his base. They fear he will de-rig the political and financial systems and to quote Langston Hughes, “Let America, Be America Again” by “Making America Great Again.”

 

SOCIAL SECURITY and MONICA LEWINSKY.

Thomas Frank, a political analyst recently wrote a book, “Listen, Liberal” where he states that President Bill Clinton, his Co-President and his administration were discussing plans to partly privatize Social Security. This plan which the former President pushed hard for had to be mothballed because the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted. Due to the lengthy and bitter proceedings, the drop in his poll numbers, and his depleted political capital the plan had to be shelved when the Dot Com bubble burst and the NASDAQ collapsed. In his book the author opines that Monica Lewinsky unknowingly saved Social Security as its funds would have been wiped out by the NASDAQ crash and later in 2007 by the financial meltdown.

Speaker Ryan is still a strong proponent of privatizing Social Security and should Mrs. Clinton win, could this earned Entitlement be privatized? The Financial Establishment has poured a ton of money into her campaign and she owes them a few favors. Trump wants to strengthen Social Security. Mrs. Clinton had previously planned to privatize it. Can present and future retirees trust a secretive, unprincipled buck-raker with their “Golden Years”?

REFERENDUM ON AMERICA

 

 

The 2016 elections are perhaps the most important elections ever! This could be the last American election where a candidate, nominated by ‘the will of the people’, runs for the Presidency. Should Mrs. Clinton win, all future elections will be between preselected nominees crowned by unelected investors and their lobbyists. Both political parties have vowed to restructure their party and super delegate rules to ensure the Trump and Bernie phenomenas never happens again. It is not the Russians who are undermining American democracy; American political investors are rigging the system to create a pseudo democracy of preselected candidates that will make the primaries a charade. America, the beacon of democracy, will be a democracy in name only like the ones in N. Korea, Russia, and China where election results are predetermined. Also, should she win, the status quo will continue until the ballooning National Debt destroys America.

American citizens are now divided into two camps. There are the “God and Country” patriots who revere the Constitution, who honor the struggles and sacrifices of their forefathers, who cherish the dark and bright chapters of their history knowing that the past cannot be changed, the ‘makers’ who believe in ‘Country above Self’. They have seen their views on morality trampled, their jobs exported their borders unsecured, their homeland dotted by sanctuary cities and feel betrayed by their elected representatives.

Confronting them are the Establishment Elites who worship money and exercise the power of their wealth to pursue their self-interests at all costs. They have invested in corrupt “Politicians of Fortune” who have rigged the financial systems. They believe in free trade (code for job exports), open borders to suppress American wages, building manufacturing plants in foreign countries and stashing profits offshore to avoid taxes. They promote ethnicity, diversity, multiculturalism and multilingualism to prevent hyphenated Americans from melting into the mainstream and becoming “One Nation”. They want to keep the country divided under “The Big Tent” as it is easier to misrule a splintered nation than a united America. They are globalists who promote the idea of Global Citizens.

In an Op-Ed written by Paul Volcker and Peter Peterson titled “Ignoring the Debt Problem” published in the NY Times on 10/22/2016, they write “It is no secret that our federal tax system is broken—– unfair, inefficient and prone to political manipulations. It’s filled with exclusions, deductions, exemptions and preferential rates”. “Those policies cost about $1.5 Trillion each year and disproportionately benefit the well off.” Elected officials are yearly diverting $1.5 Trillion owed to the US Treasury back to tax cheats! These officials believe “Representative Democracy” means representing only the political investors and lobbyists who understand “Pay to Play” politics, and not Main Street voters who must be kept in the dark about statecraft being a business of give and take. Politicians of Fortune are giving away $1.5 Trillion to Establishment ‘takers’ every year and piously tell Main Street ‘makers’ that to cut deficits, their Entitlements (Social Security and Medicare) have to be sacrificed on the chopping block.

Mr. Trump is a threat to the Establishment ‘takers’ and the Politicians of Fortune who desperately want to preserve the status quo. $i.5 Trillion a year is an unimaginable amount of money, and the Financial and Political Establishments are working in tandem with the Media Cartel to first, demonize Mr. Trump and demoralize his base, then to demolish him and his movement. The constant 23.9/7 media attacks of salacious, malicious and fact-free fabrications he is subjected to and throwing the kitchen sink and the bathroom commode at him diminishes the institution of a Free Press. The media’s attempt to rig the elections by brainwashing the public stinks of Dr. Gobbles Nazi Propaganda Ministry. 1.5 Trillion dollars a year is an incredible amount of money and has turned the Fourth Estate not just into The Fifth Column, but worse, into the “Trojan Horse”! All they do is talk negatively about Trump but never mention the Volcker-Peterson bombshell that through political manipulations, the Establishment avoids paying $1.5 Trillion in taxes! The so-called Republicans and Conservatives who have distanced themselves from Trump never represented the Republican base. They are Politicians of Fortune, enablers of the Establishment who want to prevent Trump from fixing the tax code so they can get their annual cut of the $1.5 Trillion that rightfully belongs to the American people.

Mrs. Clinton is transparently, untransparent. Her ‘public face’ is on her website, her positions penned by focus groups. Her ‘private persona’ she deleted in her e-mails but still exists in the secret transcripts of her exorbitantly paid speeches. $1.5 Trillion a year diverted from the US Treasury is a lot of money and she had to get paid for playing her part. Her WikiLeaked transcripts reveal not only her ‘private’ positions on open borders and hemispheric free trade, but also that she considered Tim Cook as a potential running mate! Apple products are manufactured in China, the company recently invested a Billion dollars in Didi Chuxing, a Chinese startup, and stashes its profits offshore. Tim Cook’s policies marginalizes American workers and robs the US Treasury. Profits above Country, the ideal Globalist to be considered for VP? The Constitution, as originally written by the Founding Fathers, and later, amended by the States does not meet with her approval. She wants to amend it by usurping State Rights and giving that power to liberal Supreme Court Justices appointed by her. If elected, how can she swear to uphold the Constitution knowing she wants to rewrite it? She accuses Trump of eroding democracy. Her nomination as the preselected Establishment candidate from whom she has received tons of money, ($1.5 Trillion a year can buy any buck raking politician) sabotaged the nominating process when the DNC unfairly collaborated with her campaign. Sen. Saunders complained the process was rigged, and WikiLeaks confirmed his assertion resulting in the DNC Chair having to be replaced. Again, WikiLeaks verified that DNC heavyweight, Donna Brazile, who was on media giant CNN’s payroll, mysteriously obtained and leaked Primary debate questions to the Clinton campaign. In the prevalent culture of ‘pay to play’ politics, Donna Brazile was promoted to Chair the DNC. The President, Mrs. Clinton, the Establishment and the Media blame Putin for providing WikiLeaks with hacked emails to help Trump win. Could the sly KGB operative, like Mrs. Clinton, have a ‘public face and a private face’? This devious man knows the hacked email controversy can backfire and propel Mrs. Clinton to the Presidency which maybe, is precisely what he wants. He knows a Clinton Presidency would destroy America without him having to lift a finger!

This November, American voters must decide whether the $1.5 Trillion yearly tax avoidance (an incredible sum of money) should be collected and paid to the US Treasury or let the Establishment avoid paying their fair share and allow Entitlement, Defense, Education Infrastructure etc., budgets to be slashed? Do Americans want a democracy as defined by President Lincoln as “Government of the people, by the people, for the people”, or the present form of ‘Government of the lobbyists, for the tax avoiding Establishment, by the Politicians of Fortune’?
