OPINION | Scaramucci grovels his way in — now comes the hard part

 

I don’t know Anthony Scaramucci.  I do know some of his close associates.  I know in 2015 Donald Trump asked to meet with him about having him work to raise money for his campaign. Although he didn’t sign up at first, he did work for the campaign but was eventually snubbed for a job in White House.

That Scaramucci eventually sold his soul and has been trying for monthsto become a part of the Trump administration is uncomfortable to watch.  But groveling, degrading oneself, and proving total loyalty and fealty to Trump finally paid off.

So why would Trump and Scaramucci think a fundraising guy who has zero experience working as either press secretary or communications director for an elected official and little experience on a campaign — let alone in a White House — think this is the most qualified person for White House communications director?  Sean Spicer reportedly resigned over the Scaramucci hire, citing that question.

Just because one is good at being a hedge fund manager and a sometimes-TV pundit, does not mean one is qualified for the job of White House communications director.  In fact, that Trump and Scaramucci (as well as others in the White House in jobs where they speak to the press) think the job looks so easy that literally anyone can do it, is a big red flag in and of itself.

 

Scaramucci’s arrogance will not pay off in this instance.  The list of “TV people” — pundits who pass themselves off as experienced political pros on FOX who simply aren’t — who’ve been plucked by Trump for high-profile jobs in his administration and stumble out of the gate — grows.  And those of us who actually have spent our professional lives in these types of jobs prior to becoming political pundits, don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

In the coming days, I imagine Sean Spicer will do a bit of both, until he pens his book deal or his TV contract.  At least he’d have the order right instead of placing the cart before the horse.  Work in politics, hone your craft, gain experience, prove your value. Then, years later when you’ve experience and wisdom and analytical chops, impart your views on TV.  Trump’s administration is chock full of backwardness on that front.  FOX News as a training ground for top White House or administration jobs is dangerous.  Since when is working in a senior level position in government an entry-level job?

Lest anyone think Sean Spicer is showing integrity or is some sort of hero for quitting his job in Trump’s White House, please take a pause before the back-slapping and accolades ensue.  Spicer was already in trouble.  Huckabee-Sanders was behind the podium. He knew Trump was shopping for a communications director.  Spicer merely saved himself the humiliation of being the guy who fetched their coffee before eventually being shown the door.

Integrity would have been resigning over any one of the many, many, many Trump lies and transgression. Instead he lied for Trump, tried to shut down the press, and defended the indefensible. And still Trump didn’t want him. Sean Spicer resigned solely to save face.

Islamic Terrorist Threat From Canada Higher Than That coming from Mexico   By Judi McLeod……

Isn’t it time for America to Construire ce mur (build that wall) to protect its citizens from potential jihadists crossing the U.S. border from Justin Trudeau’s Canada?

By :  Islamic Terrorist Threat From Canada Higher Than That coming from Mexico….. “….Montana ranchers who live and work within feet of the longest international border on earth, the Canada-US border, had it right in November of 2015: the unsecured border the U.S. shares with Canada should be a bigger worry than the Mexican one….”   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Montana ranchers who live and work within feet of the longest international border on earth, the Canada-US border, had it right in November of 2015: the unsecured border the U.S. shares with Canada should be a bigger worry than the Mexican one.

…“In Montana, which shares a 500-mile (800-km) border with Canada, border agents and some residents say they are concerned about Ottawa’s plan to bring in 25,000 Syrians by year-end, even though the government there insists its screening will be thorough and there are limited indications that militants may be seeking to use refugee status to cross borders. (Canada Free Press, Nov. 27, 2015)

“The world’s longest shared land border attracts a fraction of U.S. attention and security resources taken up by the much shorter southern border with Mexico, which is patrolled by 18,000 U.S. border agents compared to 2,200 in the north.” (Reuters, Nov. 25, 2015)

In November of 2015, the worry was the 10,000 unvetted Syrian “refugees” being flown into Canada by the year’s end, from flooding over America’s unsecured northern border and the 15,000 the newly-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was bringing to Canadian soil in February.

No one, other than the Montana ranchers and a single security guard paid much attention to the worry of terrorist crossings from Canada to the U.S. back then.

The story withered on the vine before any grapes could grow.

The calendar moves up to today with two little lines in a report that “terrorist groups based in the Middle East find some support in Latin America despite the geographic distance”: “Nevertheless, the report suggests that the Islamic terrorist threat stemming from Canada is higher than that coming from Mexico.”

 

“However, State indicates that the Islamic terrorist threat may be higher along the U.S. northern border than on its southern counterpart.” (Breitbart, July 21, 2017)

What are his visions and do they follow Sharia law?

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. — Matthew 7:6 and 15 KJV

His name is Abdulrahman Mohamed (Abdul) el-Sayed and he is a 32 year- old well packaged, American born Muslim epidemiologist who lives in Detroit and he has launched his campaign to run for the governor of Michigan in 2018. We are looking at the first Muslim who has been groomed to end up in the White House.

I am going to refer to him as the “Olive Branch” and the next master of “Hope and Change”. Keep in mind that no matter what you are told, the truth is Muslims do NOT assimilate – they move in and “dominate” and their actions from the very beginning of their existence proves this to be true.

The individual vs. the illusion of consensus reality « Jon Rappoport’s Blog…  ~  “the individual is unique, because he is himself. He is unique because he has his own ideas, because he has his own desires, because he has his own power. That power belongs to no one else.In particular, it doesn’t belong to the State.

The individual vs. the illusion of consensus reality Jul21by Jon Rappoport

The individual vs. the illusion of consensus realityby Jon Rappoport

This is such a supercharged subject, I could start from a dozen places.But let’s begin here: the individual is unique, because he is himself. He is unique because he has his own ideas, because he has his own desires, because he has his own power. That power belongs to no one else.In particular, it doesn’t belong to the State.

The State will always try to suggest that it is granting power to the individual, but this is a lie. A lie broadcast with ill-intent.While everyone else is trying to manufacture connections to the group, under the banner of a false sense of community, the individual is going in the opposite direction.Philip K Dick: “Insanity—to have to construct a picture of one’s life, by making inquiries of others.”Consensus reality is the reality of sacrifice.

It is coagulating energy, form, content, substance that takes on amorphous shapes studded with slots into which people can fit themselves.The independent individual thinks what he wants to think. Over time, he keeps graduating into new, more nearly unique levels of what he wants to think.He rises to his own thoughts.There is no subject and no substance which is not infiltrated by consensus reality.

Wherever you look, you will encounter it. The group is the basis of consensus reality, and the group-pact extends everywhere. The group fears a sector where only individual thought can tread.That would be dangerous to the illusion. “Well, we’ve got things well in hand in most places, but over there and over here we’re not in charge.”No, that doesn’t work for the group. The exceptions would blow a hole in the rule.“Stay away from the corner of Lexington Avenue and 34th Street. Something too weird is going on there. We come in and try to inject consensus on that spot and it doesn’t work. Continue reading

This political correctness was just as responsible for the death of Justine Damond as the bullet from Noor was ~ Did Officer Mohamed Noor get his job just because he’s Somali?

This political correctness was just as responsible for the death of Justine Damond as the bullet from Noor was

Did Officer Mohamed Noor get his job just because he’s Somali?


If he did, it would not be the first time.

Christina Benson was a civilian employee of the Ottawa Police Service and her job was to conduct background checks on those applying to become police officers with the Ottawa police. Last summer she conducted checks on 19 new recruits. Benson found 18 of the 19 applicants passed the check while one failed. She forwarded her findings to Charles Bordeleau, Chief of the Ottawa police. The chief has the final say on who gets hired and who does not. The man Benson determined not to have passed her background check was a Somali.

On July 24, 2016, Abdirahman Abdi, a 37-year-old Somali Canadian, became involved in a confrontation with Ottawa police after officers received information about a groping. During this confrontation, Abdi suffered a medical episode and died in hospital the next day. There was outrage as there always is when a black suspect dies at the hands of police.

On the same day Abdi passed away, Bordeleau accepted all 19 new recruits including the one rejected by Benson. Benson was furious and said the decision to hire this 19th applicant was done for political reasons. She believed the hire was in direct response to Abdi’s death and promptly resigned her position.

The Ottawa Sun reported at the time, Benson found the Somali Canadian applicant had a series of non-criminal Highway Traffic Act violations. As well as speeding tickets, his driver’s licence had been suspended on four separate occasions. During one of these suspensions, the applicant attempted to get another license. The applicant had also been accused of making a false call to police in 2013.

Benson obviously conducted thorough research. More important than the convictions themselves, she discovered in his interactions with police during traffic stops, the applicant engaged in negative behaviour. As well, Benson’s investigation revealed records showed the applicant had more than one date of birth. While it is not unusual for people born in third world countries to not know their actual date of birth, the more honourable among them pick one date of birth and stick to it. Benson also found other inconsistencies in the man’s application.

Bordeleau defended the hire of the man who failed to pass the background check. The chief made a Trudeauesque statement about the need for diversity and about how active the applicant was in Ottawa’s Somali community. The chief denied the hire was in any way connected to Abdi’s death.

Ottawa, like Minneapolis, has a high proportion of Somali immigrants and people of Somali descent

Ottawa, like Minneapolis, has a high proportion of Somali immigrants and people of Somali descent.

Last Saturday, Justine Damond, an Australian living in Minneapolis and planning to marry her American fiancé next month, made two 911 calls after hearing a noise behind her home. She thought it sounded like a couple having sex and thought it possible a woman was being sexually assaulted. Officers Matthew Harrity and Mohamed Noor arrived and with Harrity driving, drove slowly through the alley with their lights off. Damond, dressed in her pajamas, approached the car on the driver’s side and Harrity had the window rolled down to speak to the woman. There was a large noise some distance away, later attributed to either fireworks or gunshots. After the noise, Noor drew his service revolver, reached over his partner and fired a shot through the driver’s window. The bullet hit Damond in the abdomen, killing her.

At this time, not all the facts of the killing of Justine Damond are available but, as in Ottawa, political correctness seems to be involved in the innocent woman’s death at the hands of a Somali police officer. As far as Minneapolis officials and the media are concerned, the death of an innocent woman that resulted from her calling 911 to report a possible crime is not all that important. The larger issues are to the possible backlash against Muslims,  and the fact neither Noor nor his partner had their dashcams or bodycams on. Damond’s death ranks a poor third in importance in the events that occurred that night. While both officers breached the rules by not activating their cameras, the lack of recordings had nothing to do with the shooting of Damond. Yet there seems to be more focus on this than on why Noor decided to shoot the unarmed woman.

Although Noor has declined to make a statement about what happened, details are slowly beginning to emerge. Neighbours of Noor have said he has a quick temper, is extremely nervous and does not really respect women. Noor has been on the force for only a little over two years but currently has two outstanding complaints against him. And he, along with other officers, is also being sued by a woman alleging false imprisonment and assault and battery.

 

Continued below…



Being politically correct and being able to praise police officers because of their ethnicity took precedence over their ability to do the job

When Noor was first hired, he became the first Somali American officer in the city’s 5th precinct. For this he was praised by Mayor Betsy Hodges and others although his ethnic background has nothing to do with his ability to work as a police officer. As in the Ottawa case, political correctness seems to be the principle reason for his hiring.

The theory has been floated Noor shot Damond because the loud noise the officers heard led them to believe they were being ambushed. In light of recent events this was a reasonable belief. But if Noor had any ability to do his job he would have checked his side of the vehicle to see if there was any danger there and let Harrity deal with what was occurring on the driver’s side. Harrity, although startled by the loud noise, sensed no danger from Damond who was approaching his side of the car. His window was rolled down and if he saw what the woman had in her hand, he knew it was a cellphone and not a weapon. Harrity neither pulled his weapon nor said anything indicating he thought Damond posed a danger to the officers.

From what we know so far, although Noor had the ability to work in a convenience store or be prime minister of Canada (we ain’t that fussy up here), he was simply not qualified to be a police officer. Like the case in Ottawa, being politically correct and being able to praise police officers because of their ethnicity took precedence over their ability to do the job.

This political correctness was just as responsible for the death of Justine Damond as the bullet from Noor was………………

……When CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, BBC, CBC, or even sometimes FOX news anchors like Shepard Smith show nothing but disdain for president Trump, who only wants to see America restored to greatness, I am not surprised.

Those hypocrite news anchors show nothing but love for former president Obama, Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and way out there Maxine Waters who all only want to bring harm to our republic through various means, including via a one payer government medical care system.Hypocrisy comes in many gruesome forms, ranging from private family situations to the national media and political arenas.

Such hypocrisy if not abated could eventually cause unlimited harm to our republic.  For example, the hypocrites in the dragon media all made such a fuss over the “nothing burger” Russian collusion theory, or lie.  Yet every one of those hypocrites who verbally went on and on about the harm Russian dictator Vladimir Putin could render against our nation have no problem with murderous illegal immigrants, or Islamic refugees, who refuse to assimilate into American society.  Continue reading

Russia, Trump and the Deep State By Walter E. Block…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Russia, Trump and the Deep State

Email Print

Let us go out on a limb and posit that World War III, with nuclear exchanges between the U.S. and Russia, would not be a very good thing.  I know, I know, the accusations will come thick and fast that in saying this I am in the pay of a certain foreign power, that I am not a Patriot, that I hate America. Ordinarily, that prospect would suffice to prevent me from writing about the present threat of war – I do so hate conflict – but I also have children and grandchildren, and many other loved ones, and I really do not welcome a nuclear conflagration. So, let us press on.

 

I posit that at least most libertarians oppose U.S. neo-con war-mongering. Yes, Reason Magazine is an exception to this general rule, but they have long ago lost most of their claim to be members of the libertarian movement.  See Justin Raimondo on this matter. Ok, ok, maybe this is too harsh. Maybe there is still a vestige of the freedom philosophy embedded somewhere deep in the bowels of this organization. Call the Reasonites, then, the crony libertarians, or the beltway libertarians, or the neo-con libertarians. But the overwhelming majority of members and institutions in our movement must oppose, and bitterly so, any such nuclear confrontation.

Paul Craig Roberts writes a crucially important essay entitled “Trump Cannot Improve Relations With Russia When Trump’s Government and the US Media Oppose Improved Relations.” I don’t much like what he maintains, because, while there is not a false word in it, it is the counsel of despair.

Buy Gold at Discounted Prices

A South Park episode asked “What would Brian Boitano do? I inquire, instead, what could a libertarian do if he were president? Or, what could Donald Trump do to ameliorate this situation, and save pretty much the entire globe, if he had a fundamental change of heart in the direction of our freedom philosophy?

That is simple. If Donald channeled Ron Paul, or became a bit more like him, the first thing he would do would be to fire his present secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. No truer words were ever written than these of Roberts about this man: (he is) “working overtime to worsen relations between the two nuclear powers by publicly contradicting the President of the United States, thereby making it clear that Trump is barely even a cipher.” Who should Trump replace him with? Why, Dr. Ron Paul, of course.  Or, if the Donald wanted to keep Congressman Paul as his eminence gris, chief advisor on all issues foreign and domestic, then Senator Paul of Kentucky would be a fine secretary of state. What about the U.S. representative to the U.N., Nikki Haley, whose specialty seems to be undermining any and all of Mr. Trump’s libertarian tendencies in foreign policy? Why, fire her, too, of course. Who might be a good replacement for her? Lew Rockwell would be my recommendation.

Would the Donald be impeached if he undertook these actions? Well, maybe yes, maybe no. Yes, certainly, if the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and others of their ilk had anything to say about the matter. The libertarian movement would support Mr. Trump if he allowed his foreign policy instincts toward Russia to prevail, but we account for, oh, three percent of the electorate. And, how many congressmen can be counted, even in a big tent kind of way, as libertarian? Less than a half dozen, unhappily.

Who, then, can a peace president Trump count upon to ward off the real powers that be? Why, the traditional anti-war movement of the left. But where oh where is the left wing anti-war movement, now that we really need them? Yes, they only oppose Republican wars, but THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT IS NOW IN THE OFFING! Bernie, what are you doing nowadays? Why are you not now more fervently supporting the only president we have at present, the one man who could avert nuclear catastrophe? You were the only one (along with the junior Senator from Kentucky) to oppose the recent senate call for further sanctions against Russia. Which do you hate more; the destruction of Gaia, or Donald’s weak move in the direction of deregulation of business? Left wing pinko commie peaceniks: get off your rear ends and let’s get going!

Yes, the Bernie-ites are among the only ones who can come to the aid of a beleaguered (imaginary) President Trump, faced with impeachment for attempting to save the world. But there are also our “friends” the left wing environmentalists, who are always whining about the destruction of the planet, due to smoking, or coal, or underarm deodorant, or some other such minor distraction.

Hey watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside): I’ve got news for you: a nuclear based World War III with Russia will not only ruin your entire day, IT WILL ALSO DOOM OUR ENTIRE PLANET. This third rock from the Sun is the only home we have. Do you want to help a libertarian Donald, or see the Earth blasted to smithereens? (I mention the planet, which you revere, not the billions of people who will be incinerated in such a disaster, since you care for the former much more than the latter)………

Illegitimi Non Carborundum, President Trump

Jul 20, 2017 Read More Articles by Kelleigh Nelson

During his June 2015 presidential announcement speech, Mr. Trump said, “But Obamacare kicks in in 2016. Really big league. It is going to be amazingly destructive. Doctors are quitting. I have a friend who’s a doctor, and he said to me the other day, ‘Donald, I never saw anything like it. I have more accountants than I have nurses.’ It’s a disaster.

My patients are beside themselves. They had a plan that was good. They have no plan now.”Yes, doctors are quitting in droves.

The loss of physicians right here in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee Medical Center is astounding.  They get close to retirement, I’m talking 55 to 60, and say, “I’ve had enough, I’m outta here.”  The loss is astronomical. Prior to Obamacare, people were still complaining about health insurance and its costs, mostly because of bills passed by Congress that allowed illegals to freely gain healthcare in the US without insurance, and working Americans’ costs rose.

RUSH: Now, here’s what the president needs to realize. I say this with all humility, by the way. Don’t misunderstand. The president needs to realize that his base is still with him. They are with him as much as they ever have been. In fact, it’s actions like this in the House and Senate that make them even angrier, because it doesn’t make common sense. Most people don’t see the world as I just described it; they see it as Republicans and Democrats, and they think right now the Republicans don’t have a lot of gonads.

They don’t think the Republicans have a lot of desire. But that’s as far as it goes. Maybe they understand that Republicans don’t totally support Trump. They wish somebody else had won the nomination. And they think maybe the Republicans are afraid of the media. Whatever, it’s got them angry ’cause they don’t understand it (even though they do). The Republican Party owns everything, the House and the Senate. I don’t care that it’s only 52 votes in the Senate. So what? Since when is 52 votes not enough? When does that become a convenient excuse?

Want to drain the swamp?

Expose Barack Obama, who he really is and the damage he has done.

Let’s start with President Trump’s allegation that the Obama Administration wiretapped the Trump Tower in October of 2016.In summary, here is what we know.In June 2016, the Obama Administration, using flimsy evidence of Russian connections to the Trump campaign, made an initial request for electronic surveillance of Trump and his associates under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and its approval body the FISA court.

It should be noted that approval requires a very low standard of evidence. Since its inception, the FISA court has permitted 99.7% of requests.

The fact that the initial request was denied, means that the basis upon which the request was made must have been extraordinarily weak or excessively broad or both.According to a Heat Street article, the…………..

Former President Obama’s army of community organizing thugs shows no signs of slowing down efforts to protect Obama’s policy legacy and undermine the Trump administration.Obama directs Organizing for Action, a huge, well-funded 501(c)(4) nonprofit with more than 30,000 volunteers nationwide that doesn’t have to disclose its donors and that is at the head of Obama’s network of left-wing nonprofit groups.

OfA, which grew out of Obama’s electoral campaigns, has upwards of 250 offices across America. His other nonprofit, the Barack Obama Foundation, is building Obama’s $675 million presidential library in Chicago.

The library is slated to be a hub of left-wing activism. No ex-president has ever stuck around the nation’s capital to vex and undermine his successorObama now owns and lives in a $8.1 million, 8,200-square-foot, walled mansion in Washington’s Embassy Row that he is using to command his community organizing cadres in the war against President Trump. Obama’s alter ego, Valerie Jarrett, has moved into the house to help out. Jarrett also resided in the White House when Obama was president.

No ex-president has ever stuck around the nation’s capital to vex and undermine his successor. Of course, Obama is unlike any president the United States has ever had. Even failed, self-righteous presidents like Jimmy Carter, who has occasionally taken shots at his successors, didn’t stay behind in the nation’s capital to obstruct the policy-making of the new administration.OfA, which functions as a kind of shadow government, has been on the front lines attacking President Trump in order to defend the Obama administration’s awful legacy. Both OfA and George Soros-funded MoveOn.org have been leading the way in packing town hall meetings with unruly protesters. Continue reading

Book Review: Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean, New York: Viking Press, 2017, 334 pp.

The primary theme of Democracy in Chainsby Nancy MacLean, a Duke University history professor, is that participation in American democracy by conservatives or libertarians threatens the destruction of American democracy by imposing restraints on the unlimited growth of government. She claims to have only realized this dire threat in “the early 2010s” when “something extraordi-narily troubling had somehow entered American politics” (p. xv). Rather than the usual “bipartisan” support for the never-ending growth of government by both parties, a few “actions” of a few Republican governors and congressmen “seemed intended in one way or another to reduce the authority and reach of government….”

To Nancy MacLean this was “a fire bell in the night,” to borrow a phrase from Thomas Jefferson.

The alarming things that were so disturbing to MacLean were the actions of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker attempting to save his state from bankruptcy by restraining the political clout of teachers’ unions and other public employee unions; New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s criticisms of the teachers’ unions in his state; opposition to proposals to allow voter registration without showing proper I.D.; and the existence of articulate arguments in opposition to more socialist central planning of health care (a.k.a. “Obamacare”).

Democracy in Chains: T…Nancy MacLeanBest Price: $15.99Buy New $12.40Everything seemed to be going swimmingly, with the most far-left ideologue in history occupying the White House, and Democrat Party dominance of Congress, and then all of this happens. Leftists like Nancy MacLean claim to have been blindsided by political opposition that they thought had been completely neutered. So left-wing academics, armed with their generous government and (left-wing) foundation grants, immediately “tried to get a better handle on what exactly was driving this sortie from the right.” This sudden opposition to the practice of effectively granting unlimited powers to raise taxes to public employee unions, and critiques of socialized medicine, is un-American, un-democratic, and a mortal threat to the American way of life, she claims.

There’s no need to panic, however, for MacLean claims to have discovered the root of the problem. Other leftist academics have attempted to uncover some kind of secret and sinister “master plan” to transform America into the dreaded (by the Nancy MacLeans of the world) free society by investigating the writings of Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, and F.A. Hayek, she says. But with no avail. “[S]uch inquiries ran aground, because none of the usual suspects had sired this campaign” (p. xvii). “The missing piece of the puzzle,” she victoriously announces, “was James McGill Buchanan” and the Public Choice school of economics (p. xvii). This, she claims, is “the true origin story of today’s well-heeled radical right.” Without Buchanan and public choice economics, the “far right” would be “incapable of doing serious damage to American society” (p. xvii).

The mortal threat to MacLean’s cherished goal of the relentless push toward unlimited government (i.e., totalitarian socialism) that the public choice school supposedly poses is that it has taught a great many people a great deal about how government actually works. Once they understand the process, it then becomes possible to propose changes to the process—or to the constitutional rules of the game—that could re-impose founding-father-style consti-tutional limits on the growth of government. All those years of Hamiltonian manipulation of “the living constitution” by leftist government lawyers in black robes could conceivably be reversed!

Indeed, Buchanan himself often said that public choice was essentially a rewriting of much of the writings of men like James

Madison and Jefferson in the language of modern public choice economics (it was Jefferson who said that “the natural tendency of things is for government to gain ground and for liberty to yield”; and that government needed to be “bound by the chains of the Constitution”). He also was fond of saying that “no one could be a socialist” if they understood public choice theory. Perhaps Nancy MacLean is on to something here.

In Nancy MacLean’s mind, there’s nothing wrong with America’s government establishment employing vast resources educating people how to use the levers and processes of government to expand its size, scope, powers, and budgets. This is accomplished today with the help of the vast university system which has become one giant taxpayer-financed think tank for statism with only a handful of exceptions; through a “mainstream media” that seems every bit as propagandistic as Pravda was during the Cold War; hundreds of thousands of government bureaucrats at all levels of government, every one of which is a propagandist/lobbyist for bigger government; a K-12 school system that is thoroughly embedded with leftist political correctness; huge armies of political consultants, lobbyists, and paid propagandists; a popular culture that endlessly repeats anti-capitalist, anti-libertarian, and pro-statist themes; and thousands of government-funded nonprofit organizations, from the AARP to the Wilderness Society, that promote more interven-tionism and less freedom. On top of that are private foundations like Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller that have showered leftist academics with foundation grants for decades, not to mention the contributions of socialistic billionaires like George Soros, Ted Turner, and Bill Gates. For years, the Capital Research Center in Washington, D.C. published an annual study entitled Patterns of Corporate Philanthropy that documented that for every $1 corporate foundations gave to a conservative or libertarian organization, between $2 and $3 was given to a left-of-center group.

All of this is apparently a proper if not essential part of American democracy, but not the writings of James Buchanan and other public choice scholars, and certainly not conservative or liber-tarian foundations that would financially support such research and writing, even if their multi-million dollar donations are a mere pittance compared to the funding of the Left. Hence the purpose of Democracy in Chains is to discredit and even defame Buchanan, the public choice school, and especially wealthy conservative or libertarian philanthropists like Charles Koch who have funded such research and education. The bulk of the book is a relentless critique, sometimes bordering on libel and slander, of James Buchanan and Charles Koch, the bogeyman of the American Left.

MacLean learned a great deal about Buchanan by spending what must have been weeks, or months, going through all of his personal files in “Buchanan House” on the George Mason

University campus. (When James Buchanan and his Public Choice Center moved from Virginia Polytechnic Institute to George Mason University in the mid 1980s the old president’s house was allocated to Buchanan as his office and was named “Buchanan House”).

MacLean boasts of how Buchanan’s intellectual heirs at George Mason left the door to Buchanan House unlocked so that someone like herself could rifle through all of the Nobel laureate’s private papers and files and use them to write a book that attempts to defame him. (She does call him a genius, but an “evil” genius).

The book is also an attack on libertarianism in general, as MacLean cherry picks quotations here and there from various libertarian-oriented writers, usually out of context, in order to critique and ridicule them. Oddly, there is only one mention of the most famous (non-academic) libertarian in the world, Ron Paul. MacLean mentions in passing on page 144 that, in the late 1970s, Ron Paul once voiced approval of a Reason Foundation proposal for city governments to put city services up for competitive bidding.

MacLean’s critique begins with a chapter about John C. Calhoun, of all people, who is not even cited a single time in Buchanan’s magnum opus (with Gordon Tullock), The Calculus of Consent. I never heard Buchanan mention Calhoun when I took his Ph.D.-level Public Finance course at VPI in the fall of 1977, or when I was a colleague of his for a few years at George Mason University in the 1980s. If he mentioned Calhoun in any of his writings, I am not aware of it. Neither is Nancy MacLean, apparently, for she does not present a single footnote to make the point that Buchanan was somehow following in Calhoun’s footsteps.

Nevertheless, Calhoun did write in the same philosophical spirit as Madison and other founders, and MacLean quotes Murray Rothbard (p. 2) to that effect. Buchanan did consider much of public choice theory to be derived from the kind of thinking possessed by the framers of the Constitution. Her discussion of Calhoun, however, is often distorted, just plain incorrect, and even cartoonish. For example, she claims that the only people in Calhoun’s South Carolina who would have been harmed by the 1828 Tariff of Abominations, which imposed an extortionate, 45 percent average tariff rate on imports, were wealthy plantation owners. The man who was supposedly Buchanan’s intellectual inspiration, she is saying, was a mere apologist for slave owners.

Such talk is simply a joke, for high tariffs on woolen blankets (100 percent), shoes, farm tools, leather goods, and myriad other consumer products negatively affected the entire population. Moreover, the Tariff of Abominations was a deeply regressive tax that imposed a harsher burden on the lower-income people whom MacLean, as a card-carrying leftist, claims to be championing.

MacLean is also factually wrong when she calls South Carolina’s opposition to the Tariff of Abominations “the first regionwide tax rebellion in U.S. history” (p. 6). The Pennsylvania Whiskey Rebellion (1791) and Shay’s Rebellion in Massachusetts (1786) occurred decades earlier. The American Revolution itself was in part a tax rebellion (“Taxation Without Representation!”). Did the American colonists fight a revolution so that they could maintain the system of slavery that the king of England had imposed on them? This is what MacLean’s logic, such as it is, would suggest.

These facts illustrate another falsehood in the book, namely, MacLean’s assertion that such tax protests “did not arise where slavery was absent” (p. 7). Yes, they did, and they were led mostly by yeoman farmers in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts who protested the imposition of national whiskey and property taxes.

MacLean’s apparent strategy here is to falsify history by insisting that all early-American tax protests occurred only to “protect slavery” for the wealthy “propertied class.” She quotes another leftist historian who wrote incorrectly that “the anti-government rhetoric that continues to saturate our political life is rooted in [support for] slavery rather than liberty” (p. 7). This would imply that all of the anti-government rhetoric of the founders, including Jefferson’s “train of abuses” in the Declaration of Independence, the writings of Thomas Paine, and much else was all designed only to “support slavery.” What nonsense.

She then makes numerous analogies to today’s libertarian intel-lectual critics of Big Government, arguing that they of course are not slavery defenders, but their motives are not much better—they are merely paid intellectual prostitutes defending the super-rich. The academic recipients of multi-million-dollar government or (left-wing) foundation grants, on the other hand, are assumed to be as morally pure and objectively honest as the driven snow.

Like all radical socialists, MacLean is a harsh, sneering critic of private property, following in the footsteps of Marx and Engels who called for the “ABOLITION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY” in The Communist Manifesto. She repeats her mantra in several chapters that libertarian defenders of property rights are really only defending the rights of perhaps the top one-half of one percent of income earners—the wealthiest of the wealthiest. Not even the “one-percenters,” she says, but the one-half-of-one-percenters. Who needs private property if only the wealthiest of the wealthy, who became wealthy in the first place by exploiting the rest of us, benefit from it?

That was supposedly true in Calhoun’s day, as it is today, she insists. She cites Mises, Rothbard, Hayek, and Friedman as though she has read their writings on property rights, but she either hasn’t or chose to ignore them. Mises was especially clear when he wrote in The Free and Prosperous Commonwealth (p. 67) that “Private property creates for the individual a sphere in which he is free of the state. It sets limits to the operation of the authoritarian will…. It thus becomes the basis of all those activities that are free from violent interference on the part of the state. It is the soil in which the seeds of freedom are nurtured and in which the autonomy of the individual and… material progress are rooted.” Secure property rights are a prerequisite for market exchange, market prices, the division of labor, and the human civilization created thereby.

Like other advocates of unlimited powers of the central state, MacLean also falsifies the history of nullification and interpo-sition by asserting that the idea began with Calhoun, and was only meant to defend slavery. But as Tom Woods (2010) shows in his book,Nullification, the American colonists were the first nullifiers. Jefferson and Madison then adopted the concept in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 that nullified the outlawing of free political speech through the Sedition Act that was being enforced by the Hamiltonian Federalist Party. Northern states nullified the Fugitive Slave Act, and Ohio nullified the chartering of branches of the Bank of the United States within its borders. New Englanders cited Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolve to justify nullifying President Jefferson’s trade embargo and to decline participation in the War of 1812.

McLean also falsely asserts that Calhoun was the first to talk of two conflicted classes in terms of net taxpayers (producers) and net tax consumers. This, too, was not original with Calhoun, but was introduced to American political philosophy by Jefferson and others who were familiar with the writings of the French “Industrialist School” of such writers as Augustin Theiry, Charles Comte, Charles Donoyer, Antoine Destutt de Tracy, Benjamin Constant, and Jean-Baptiste Say (Raico, 2006). Nor was Calhoun the lone American writing about what is known as libertarian class analysis; William Leggett, the owner and editor of the New York Post during Calhoun’s time and a well-known abolitionist, was a prolific libertarian writer who also wrote of the injustice of empowering “net tax consumers” to plunder their fellow citizens.

MacLean really did her homework after spending all that time in Buchanan House, for a good portion of the book is a biographical sketch of James Buchanan, beginning with his birth in Gun, Tennessee in 1919. She briefly discusses his intellectual exodus from Middle Tennessee State Teachers College (triple major in English, Economics, and Mathematics), his time on the staff of Admiral Nimitz during World War II, the University of Tennessee (Master’s degree in Economics), the University of Chicago, University of Virginia, UCLA, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and George Mason University. She discusses at length the Thomas Jefferson Center for Political Economy and Social Philosophy that Buchanan founded at the University of Virginia, which produced many fine scholars in the classical liberal tradition.

Throughout the book, MacLean strains mightily to distort Buchanan’s views to make him sound as outlandish as possible. For example, on page 49 she quotes Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia as having been opposed to any government borrowing at all for “public investments” and then writes that Byrd “would have applauded the book on public debt that Buchanan was writing at the time.” She is implying here that Buchanan shared this view of debt, which he did not. If she had read Buchanan’s book on public debt she would have learned that he approved of government debt for infrastructure, for example, as long as the taxes to service the debt were earmarked for that purpose.

There is a long-winded discussion of the resistance to desegre-gation of education in Virginia in the 1960s, which seems totally irrelevant to the supposed theme of the book, or to anything Buchanan was writing about at the time. Again, her purpose here seems to be to argue that the origins of modern libertarianism are in the Virginia opponents of desegregation. “In these final hours of the massive resistance [to desegregation] era… can be found the seed of the ideas guiding today’s attack on the public sector and robust democracy alike,” she writes on page 72.

Another  outlandish  falsehood  in  Democracy  in  Chains  isMacLean’s statement on page 79 that “the major deficiency” of the Virginia School (i.e., the Public Choice School), is “the failure to search for empirical tests of the new theories.” If MacLean had looked at any one issue of the journal Public Choice she would have learned that this is unequivocally untrue. Public Choice became very mainstream, and Buchanan was awarded the Nobel Prize for his part in it, precisely because there had been hundreds, or thousands, of published econometric tests of its propositions. Bob Tollison alone, Buchanan’s most prolific student, authored and co-authored literally hundreds of academic journal articles that were econometric tests of various hypotheses drawn from public choice theory. I personally attended every weekly Public Choice seminar, and every economics department seminar, at VPI from September 1976 to June 1979 as a graduate student and can attest that at least 90 percent of all the papers presented there contained some kind of empirical test. MacLean’s assertion is preposterous.

It’s hard to believe that with all the effort that went into this book, sitting in Buchanan House for weeks on end, she never once looked at an issue of Public Choice on the shelf in Buchanan’s office.

Among the mountain of falsehoods in this book is the further statement on page 98 that public choice scholars involved in the rent-seeking literature “depicted as rent-seeking anycollective efforts by citizens or public servants to prompt government action that involved tax revenues” (emphasis added). This is another silly falsehood. Buchanan and Tullock were not anarchists; they were proponents of limited, constitutional government who generally approved of the use of taxation for the constitutional functions of government. This viewpoint is quite pervasive in the rent-seeking literature for anyone who looks for it. This literature is highly empirical, as most of public choice research is, yet MacLean falsely claims that it only involves “hypothetical scenarios with no true research—no facts—to support them . . .” (p. 98).

MacLean discusses Buchanan’s departure from the University of Virginia after Gordon Tullock was denied a promotion to full professor for the third time, an act that Buchanan believed was an outrage, considering Tullock’s achievements and reputation in the economics profession at the time. MacLean basically slanders the late Gordon Tullock by quoting an anonymous person who supposedly called him a “twit;” writing that “he was an awful teacher;” and “his publication record—apart from the book he coauthored with Buchanan—was undistinguished.” He didn’t deserve the promotion, in other words, so there must have been some other reason for Buchanan’s departure from Virginia.

I took Gordon Tullock’s Ph.D.-level seminar course in Public Choice in the fall of 1977 with some of the survivors of the first year of the graduate economics program at VPI (about half dropped out or flunked out after the first year). The Calculus of Consent was one of the textbooks and Tullock, being a University of Chicago-trained legal scholar, conducted the class like a law professor—or at least like the Harvard law professor portrayed in the movie Paper Chase.

 

He would come to each class with a couple of questions that were of the sort that they could have been final exam questions, research paper topics, or even dissertation topics in public choice. He would arbitrarily hand one of us a piece of chalk, and instruct us to stand in front of the rest of the class at the blackboard and explain how we would go about answering the question. It became a team effort, led by the professor, to think through the problem. He was always helpful and encouraging, sharing his great learning with us. He was not an “awful” teacher.

As for MacLean’s smear that Tullock’s publication record was “undistinguished,” she should have taken ten seconds or so to Google “Gordon Tullock vita.” She would have discovered that by the time Buchanan and Tullock left Virginia Tullock had published sixbooks, not one (The Calculus of Consent with Buchanan; The Politics of Bureaucracy; The Organization of Inquiry; Toward a Math-ematics of Politics; Private Wants, Public Means; and The Logic of the Law). In addition, he had published four articles in the prestigious Journal of Political Economy, four in the American Economic Review, and others in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Economic History Review, Oxford Economic Papers, Economic Journal, Western Economic Journal, Il Politico, and Social Science Quarterly, among others. All while founding and editing Public Choice and refereeing at least half of all the articles himself.

The second half of Democracy in Chains is mostly about Charles Koch, the network of conservative and libertarian organizations that he has funded, and his relationship, such as it was, with James Buchanan. MacLean accurately states that after spending many millions of dollars over some three decades, Koch’s efforts “produced few results” (p. 127). She details how Koch worked with Murray Rothbard to co-found the Cato Institute, but says nothing at all about how Koch later confiscated Rothbard’s shares in the organization and disassociated himself with Rothbard. No mention is made of this, or of the reasons why the two men had a falling out. She does get much of the Koch story backwards, however, by saying that Charles Koch insisted that his well-funded minions remain “uncompromisingly radical” (p. 145). That, in fact, is why Rothbard was booted—he wasin fact uncompromisingly radical whereas Koch, who moved the Cato Institute from California to Washington, D.C., was not. He wanted to pursue a patently un-radical plan of trying to teach free-market and libertarian prin-ciples to the Washington, D.C. bureaucracy—at least in a watered-down and compromised form that would not be too offensive to them.

That has always been the Cato Institute’s business plan.

In the middle of her discussion of Koch, MacLean inserts a diversion chapter to take one more swipe at Buchanan by noting that he, like Milton Friedman, had accepted an invitation from faculty members to speak at a Chilean university after the overthrow of the socialist government there in the 1970s. (The faculty members were University of Chicago graduates). He offered advice to the Chilean students and faculty about a balanced budget, an independent central bank, and the importance of some kind of system of consti-tutional checks and balances. MacLean uses this narrative to repeat once again the ridiculous falsehood that “there was no empirical research” in the public choice literature (p. 158) in order to make the argument that Buchanan was spouting nonsense to his Chilean hosts. The main purpose of this diversion chapter is apparently to once again attempt to imply that “libertarianism” is really an evil, stealthy, centuries-long plot to benefit dictators and billionaires at the expense of the rest of society. And MacLean claims that it is public choice economists who lack facts and evidence!

One interesting and informative part of the book is MacLean’s discussion in the last two chapters of how Charles Koch and his lieu-tenant, Richie Fink, talked seventy-nine-year-old James Buchanan into lending his name to an organization on the George Mason campus that would become essentially a lobbying arm of Koch Industries. The James Buchanan Center, funded by a $10 million grant to George Mason University in 1997, was staffed mostly by non-academics who conducted “outreach” programs for “Senators, Congressmen, and state legislators, legislative staff and regu-lators….” (p. 199). Some academics were involved, but they were in the minority, writes MacLean. Most were apparently Richie Fink’s political cronies from the D.C. corporate lobbying world.

Buchanan was not happy with this arrangement. MacLean uncovered a September 17, 1998 memo from Buchanan to Fink in the files at Buchanan House in which Buchanan wrote: “Quite frankly, I am pissed off.” What was being done under his name “verges on fraud and surely, at a minimum amounts to exploi-tation of me, of you, of JBC [the James Buchanan Center], of the university” (p. 201). “Buchanan had been played like a fiddle” by Koch and Fink, writes MacLean, and she is right. Buchanan retired to his farm in Blacksburg soon thereafter.

Buchanan was not the only George Mason faculty member who was disgusted with the Koch/Fink gambit. The late Charles Rowley, a distinguished public choice and law and economics scholar whom Buchanan had brought from England to George Mason and the Public Choice Center in 1985, wrote on his blog in 2012 that Richie Fink, Charles Koch’s top “strategist,” was “a third-rate political hack” and “a man who is very appropriately named” (p. 209). “Far too many libertarians have been seduced by Koch money into providing intellectual ammunition for an autocratic businessman,” he wrote. Many libertarians understood this, Rowley said, but remained silent because “too many of them benefit financially from the pocket money doled out by Charles and David Koch.”

When Buchanan died in 2013 Nancy MacLean attended the memorial service for him in Fairfax. “[N]either Koch nor Fink… bothered to attend his memorial service,” she noticed. “Why should they? His days of usefulness to them had passed” (p. 204).

MacLean’s concluding chapter repeats for about the hundredth time her neo-Marxist, ad hominem theme that the whole history of classical liberalism, or libertarianism, is that of a small number of people working as paid apologists first for slave owners, and now for billionaires who want to use the powers of the state to line their own pockets at the expense of the rest of society. This is perhaps why, in a book about libertarianism in America, she completely ignores Ron Paul’s extraordinary, worldwide popularity; the millions of voters who wanted him to become president; his voluminous writings and speeches; and the millions of dollars of spontaneous individual contributions to his campaigns based on nothing more than his recitation of libertarian economics, defense of civil liberties, and his advocacy of a foreign policy of national defense instead of offense.

MacLean also completely ignores the educational institution that Ron Paul is most closely………………..

President Trump is attempting to overhaul the State Department and leave his “America First” stamp on the cumbersome bureaucracy — a move that is reportedly making former officials very nervous. Continue reading

Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men, according to two scientists who argued that it oppresses diverse voices and bolsters the status of already privileged and established white male scholars.

Geographers Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argued in a recent paper that doing so also perpetuates what they call “white heteromasculinism,” which they defined as a “system of oppression” that benefits only those who are “white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, and Continue reading

Progressive commentators Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Stephanie Miller, and their cacophonous coterie of smart sounding experts and political hacks toss around words like “collusion” “treason” “un-American” to describe a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. held with “the Russians” to gather opposition research, a minor scandal for sure, but they forget history.

They claim the moral high-ground and they are in full Dutch with their leftist memes on display, the cackles and the smirks, the overdose of smug. They want us to forget their decades of sycophantic support for the corrupt antics of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their greed, their suppression of investigations, their dubious interaction with foreign powers, their grasping for power.

They want us to forget that American officials, so-called progressives, their ideological predecessors, really did collude with “the Russians” in generations past, that those officials really were un-American traitors.

The same types of progressives who now incessantly and mercilessly attack President Trump attacked and vilified those who sought to expose what was real collusion and treason back then.(Excerpt) Read more at newsmax.com …

The Obamacare Repeal Circus Continues

https://newswithviews.com/the-obamacare-repeal-circus-continues/

Well, I guess the answer to the question I put forth in my January 16, 2017 column has been answered over the past seven months: Obamacare: how badly will congress screw up fixing that disaster?

That would be a Republican controlled House and Senate. Remember how Republicans begged for the Senate so they WOULD repeal Obamacare? Well, the American people gave them the Senate and in January a Republican president and still after all these years, the GOP establishment (Paul Ryan, Mitch the banker’s bitch McConnell and their ilk) who hate conservatives have managed to make a grand mess they can’t seem to crawl out of.

Republicans use state payoffs to win votes for repeal bill

“Republicans hammered Democrats seven and a-half years ago for larding Obamacare with state-specific payoffs and sweeteners to secure the last few votes for passage. Who can forget the “Cornhusker Kickback,” which funneled $45 million to Nebraska to nail the support of former Sen. Ben Nelson? But the revised Senate Obamacare repeal bill shows Republicans engaged in the same pattern of horse trading as they try to win 50 ayes to advance an unpopular bill.”

Here Are 5 Backroom Deals Inside The Latest Senate Health-Care Bill

Anyone who has done the research and believes the U.S. Constitution is the law of the land fully understands Obamacare IS unconstitutional in a dozen ways from Sunday. Violation of equal protection, forcing Americans to purchase a product, ignoring Supreme Court decisions clearly stating Congress has no authority to legislate medical treatment in this country, the fact that the bill originated (thanks to now gone CORRUPT CROOK, Sen. Harry Reid) in the Senate in violation of Art. 1, Sec. 7 of the U.S. Constitution and more. Stealing the fruits of one’s labor to give to someone else for whatever reason (please save the hate mail) is morally wrong, but that’s exactly what the taxes subsidizing Obamacare recipients is all about.

“The catalogue of means and actions which might be imposed upon an employer in any business, tending to the satisfaction and comfort of his employees, seems endless. Provision for free medical assistance, nursing, clothing, food, housing, and education of children, and a hundred other matters might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. Can it fairly be said that the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce extends to the prescription of any or all of these things? It is not apparent that they are really and essentially related solely to the social welfare of the worker and therefore remote from any regulation of commerce as such? We think the answer is plain. These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power”. – Railroad Retirement Board v. Alton Railroad Co, 295 U.S. 330, 55 S. Ct. 758 1935)

What the Senate’s 3.8% surtax means for American taxpayers – Taxing those who work hard and have been successful to pay for an unconstitutional ‘law’ is NOT what this country was founded on; quite the contrary.  Let’s Talk About Obamacare Subsidies

In any event, Obamacare has been a massive failure from the get-go which was the plan all along. A single payer system has always been the ultimate nightmare ‘goal’. Obamacare has caused tremendous suffering and hardship for tens of millions of Americans and it continues while the incompetent fools who ‘control’ Congress – you know – those same incumbents Americans keep reelecting every two years – can’t find their backsides.

What’s $200 BILLION here and there, but remember: It’s all borrowed money since the people’s purse is overdrawn $20 TRILLION bux: Exclusive – Sen. Rand Paul: Senate GOP Decides to Keep Obamacare

“I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!” What happened?

 

“Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout. Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars. Insurance company bailouts? Those, too.”

NO WHERE and I mean NO WHERE in Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution does it give Congress ANY authority to steal from you to give bail outs to ANY private corporation or………………

Sen. John McCain Involved In ‘Deep State’ Espionage Against Trump…y NWV Senior Political News Writer, Jim Kouri   ~   “…“If you look up the political term RINO in a dictionary it should carry a picture of McCain with the definition ‘Republican In Name Only,’” said police adviser for the National Law…”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sen. John McCain Involved In ‘Deep State’ Espionage Against Trump

https://gunnyg.wordpress.com/2017/07/17/sen-john-mccain-involved-in-deep-state-espionage-against-trump-y-nwv-senior-political-news-writer-jim-kouri-if-you-look-up-the-political-term-rino-i/

By NWV Senior Political News Writer, Jim Kouri

“Revealed: ‘Ordinary ‘citizen’ John McCain dispatched a trusted aide across the Atlantic to [obtain] dirty dossier from ex-spy after former British diplomat told him about blackmail tapes….”

Sen. John McCain said he did “what any citizen would do” in turning over to the FBI a so- called dirty dossier, that allegedly contained unconfirmed secrets about president-elect Donald Trump, over to the FBI. The Arizona Senior Senator has gained a reputation as a “reasonable conservative” but his critics say he is “neither reasonable nor is he a conservative.”

“If you look up the political term RINO in a dictionary it should carry a picture of McCain with the definition ‘Republican In Name Only,’” said police adviser for the National Law

Enforcement Legal Defense Society, Charles Coultner.

A former intelligence officer told NewswithViews.com that the left-leaning British newspaper, The Guardian, described how the dossier came to be and how McCain got his hands on the super-secret documents.

“I first heard about this mysterious dossier when I was checking out an Inside the Beltway private detective and security firm. The firm allegedly tapped Trump‘s campaign staff and his allies hoping to find negative ammunition against the true Republican Maverick, Donald Trump,” said former military intelligence operative and New York police detective Michael Snopes.

“I know… I know… Senator John McCain is the guy the Democrats love to use to slam the GOP because most of the time he has cooperated with the Democrats, especially now,” said Iris Aquino, a former police official and now a director of security for a major corporation.

Shortly after the election — that left Donald Trump the winner and Hillary Clinton the loser — John McCain attended a Canadian conference and spoke with a ‘former senior western diplomat’ who knew of the dossier’s existence, claims the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail.

Sir Andrew Wood described to reporters his dealings with McCain: “I would like to stress that I did not pass on any dossier to Senator McCain or anyone else and I did not see a dossier at the time.” However, it’s what Wood did not say that was interesting: He didn’t deny telling McCain about the dirty dossier.

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal exposed the ex-spy who actually obtained the documents as being British subject, Christopher Steele.

Steele’s spy agency discovered a Democratic Party insider who wanted dirt on the now Republican nominee instead.

Brain-computer hookup equals mainstream news

Brain-computer hookup equals mainstream newsThe fatal flaw in the human-computer interfaceby Jon RappoportJuly 17, 2017There is a great deal of “utopian research” going on in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) merging with the brain.Exuberant cheerleaders like Ray Kurzweil are quite confident we are approaching a moment when a computer will exhibit all the power of the human brain.The definition of “power” in this context is fuzzy. But Kurzweil and others are sure we’re about to uncover the “algorithm” that underlies all brain activity.They couldn’t be more wrong.

Neuroscience has barely scratched the surface of understanding how the brain operates. Cracking the code is not on the horizon.Most importantly: how would a brain-computer interface work? Hook up your brain to a super-computer, and how does your brain absorb the computer’s data, and how does it make the data known to YOU, the user?We aren’t talking about a quiz show where you ask a computer a question and it spits out an answer.

And we aren’t talking about crude signals to the brain that can provoke physical reactions. This is about the transmission of detailed information.There is another problem, even assuming a computer could magically fill your consciousness with usable data.A human-computer interface, endowed with access to a hundred galaxies of stored data, would run up against the problem of vast chronic misinformation in those cosmic warehouses.This is not something that can be deleted with a program or a committee tasked with making corrective changes.

Don Surber: How Obama wiretapped Trump Tower!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How Obama wiretapped Trump Tower

DCWhispers has breaking news: “Loretta Lynch Ordered Illegal Wiretap Against Trump Campaign.”The irony of last week’s Big Leak on Don Jr. (likely by Robert Mueller) is that it is helping reveal that the real criminal activity was by the Democratic Party.Lying Loretta Lynch sought a secret warrant to wiretap Team Trump in June 2016.

The federal court turned her request down. Now DC Whispers reported the Administration wiretapped anyway — just like President Trump said on March 4.From DCWhispers:The sting operation was put in place via a Russian attorney/operative named  Natalia Veselnitskaya whose social media history marks her as an adamant anti-Trumper and who was granted a special exemption to travel into the United States by the Obama Department of Justice.

The sting was further facilitated by a Russian-born American citizen named Rinat Akhmetshin who was granted citizenship during the Obama era and who as as D.C. lobbyist is well-connected to the D.C. political establishment and is said to have been instrumental in the creation of an anti-Trump dossier Trump’s political opponents were preparing to use against him during the campaign. (And then sought out and turned over to the FBI by anti-Trumper John McCain – see related story HERE )It appears that once Veselnitskaya received confirmation she would be granted an audience with Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the Trump campaign, Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered an illegal recording of that meeting.

Heads up to Charles Ortel, Mike Cernovich and other brave souls who keep digging for the truth about the Clinton Foundation: Make public your own suicide note before your never-to-be-proven killers get to register “SUICIDE” as the cause of your untimely death.

Send out your own ‘Suicide’ note first along the lines of: I (fill-in-the-blank) am researching the mysterious deaths of Seth Rich, John Ashe, Peter E. Smith, Klaus Eberwein and others. I would never choose suicide as the way out of life on earth.” It wouldn’t hurt to add, “nor am I the type to ever drop a barbell on my own neck.” “Ditto for wandering along alone on the streets of Washington, D.C., which should be one of the safest places to be out wandering, rather than the political quagmire it really is.”

Get it notarized, gentlemen, and never stop looking over your shoulders.

Posted on February 3, 2013 by Gunny GTIPPING IS PLAIN STUPID! BOTTOM LINE: So why do we allow this scam, in the form/system of “tipping,” to go on by our participation in this practice? Easy! Mainly because of the massive social pressure on us to do so. Also, there is the vanity aspect–we ourselves, love to tip– “put on the dog,” as they say –by impressing ourselves and others in our demonstarted generosity and ability to reward, handsomely, those “underlings” –yes, perceived underlings, if you care to be honest with yourself about it–even though said underlings may easily be pocketing higher wages than you yourself and for less effort.

And, their employers are laughing at all of us while they are quite content with their lower operating costs, as they, and the IRS, manipulate the whole scene to their personal advantage. What If….

All costs of going out for meals, etc.–both goods and services–were included in the cost as listed–just like most other things. No tips, surcharges, gratuities, no BS!, whatever… WHAT A CONCEPT!!! WAKE UP AMERICA!

Posted on 7/15/2017, 9:56:17 AM by Former Proud Canadian

For approximately the past five years, the Mainstream Media (MSM) and the Obama-administration supported research “think-tanks” for monitoring the North Korean situation have had a field day. They consistently (along with the brain-dead public’s crowds of naysayers) and intentionally understated the capabilities of North Korea.

The experts in the field (such as Dr. Peter V. Pry, Admiral Bill Gortney, General Curtis Scapparotti) have not been able to be denied; however, they have been marginalized and made to seem to be “in conflict” with the prevailing, majority “view.” The “tyranny of the majority,” in this case, was needed to accomplish the objectives of the Obama administration: appear to be “strong” on sanctions, and “aloof” with diplomacy, i.e., Barack Hussein Obama II’s not “lowering” himself to Continue reading

Why is Obama getting away with a ‘12th of Never’ deadline on fundraising? Look out, America.

Why is Obama fundraising and why are corporations answering his cash call?

***

http://canadafreepress.com/print_friendly/why-is-obama-fundraising-and-why-are-corporations-answering-his-cash-call

*****


The burning question of our day: When will Barack Obama have made enough money?

When, for instance,  will Obama turn off the money tap that is now pouring millions into the Obama Foundation?

Not until the ‘12th of Never’, and as Johnny Mathis sings “and that’s a long, long time.”

No one should have ever have taken Obama at his word in his speech to a Quincy, Illinois audience about Wall Street reform on April 28, 2010: “I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

…”But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.”

Now happier economy than growing your own!

The “certain point” when he’s made enough money” has yet to have been reached by dollar scrounging Barack Obama.

With over $14 million for his first three best sellers already banked, and now bidding his next book deal in a contract with wife, Michelle, estimated at over $60 million, does Obama really need the money?

And that doesn’t even take into account the fees he is paid for speeches.

“Technology and energy corporations have joined the list of top donors to the Obama Foundation, which on Friday made public the names of more than 700 patrons from the last three months. (Chicago Tribune, July 14, 2017)


“Exelon and Microsoft have given more than a million dollars to the foundation, which was founded in 2014 but boosted its fundraising efforts after President Barack Obama left the White House.”

Notice how the Obama Foundation has “boosted its fundraising after Obama left the White House”?

Thanks to multinational corporations, will Obama be the first president to retain almost as much power out of office as he did when he was in?

“Reid Hoffman, a venture capitalist known for creating LinkedIn who has himself given more than a million dollars to the foundation, sits on the board of Microsoft. William Von Hoene Jr., a senior vice executive president at Exelon, which pledged $10 million over the next five years, helps lead the foundation’s efforts to promote diversity and inclusion. (Chicago Tribune)

“Exelon is proud to support the Obama Foundation and the establishment of the first presidential library ever located in Chicago, which will undoubtedly become a strong economic driver for the south side and the city we call home,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.

“The list of new donors also includes at least one anonymous contributor who directed more than a million dollars through a donor-advised fund managed by The New York Community Trust and another who gave a half-million dollars through the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

“Chicago’s billionaire Crown family gave between $250,001 and $500,000.

 

Continued below…



“Meanwhile, the family foundation of investor Andrew Hauptman, owner of the Chicago Fire, has brought its cumulative contribution closer to the million dollars it has pledged.

“In addition to Hoffman and wife Michelle Yee, two other philanthropists who previously donated have now given more than $1 million: billionaire David Shaw and wife Beth, who advised Obama on financial capability; and through their family foundation, Debbie and Glenn Hutchins, who co-founded a private equity firm specializing in technology and technology-enabled companies such as Skype.

“Every three months, the foundation posts the names of those who have contributed more than $200 and their gifts, listed in a range of dollars. The quarterly postings lack the specificity of Federal Election Commission filings, which give the exact contribution to candidates for federal office. FEC reports also give information about donors, including their address, employer and occupation.”

Why is Obama getting away with a ‘12th of Never’ deadline on fundraising?

 

Look out, America.

Is the first ex-president who ever left the White House to become the ‘Leader of the Resistance’  collecting money for his ego or to fund the Resistance?

The Real Deplorables  By Ray DiLorenzo

• Crime and corruption is no stranger to those in Washington
• Sanctuary for the bureaucrat, a hiding place for the deal makers, career politicians, and the over-priced sponges of society…the real deplorables

The Real Deplorables


“For whom much is given, much is expected.”  Luke 12:18

Mark Twain once said, “There is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress.”  To all the “Honorable” and esteemed Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen who claim honor, distinction, forthrightness, dignity, and exaltation…raspberries! Too many of you can not live up to your own bogus standards. You’ve earned your lousy approval ratings…11% in 2015 (Gallup) and still a dismal 21% in 2017 (Gallup).

You have disconnected your lives from the people you represent. A myriad of you probably don’t even know what a bar code is or even live in the district you represent. Yes, Maxine Waters, that’s you. You live in a $4.3 million mansion in the best part of Los Angeles. How the heck did you manage that with a 40-year career in government?  And you too, Mr. Osoff, who just lost an election for the 6th District in Georgia where you don’t even live. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have been paying attention.

Crime and corruption is no stranger to those in Washington. Some of the offenses committed or prosecuted while in office by the “honorable” people of our Congress and our government is staggering…felony tax evasion, wire fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud, sexual misconduct, racketeering, drugs, conspiracy, extortion, money laundering, financial corruption, domestic violence, theft, bribery, second degree manslaughter, possession of child pornography, embezzlement, perjury, witness tampering, destroying evidence, obstruction of justice, intoxication and resisting arrest.

Remarkably, in my research, since the year 1900, I counted almost an equal division of convictions of major crimes by both Republicans and Democrats. At my count, 49 Republicans to 52 Democrats…fairly even for all intents and purposes. The most crime-free administration found was the Taft (R) 1909 – 1921. The record of crimes by people in government has skyrocketed from the Nixon administration on through the Obama administration. Whether that is because of increased oversight is hard to say.

 

The voters have given Washington a strong signal, a solid indication of how they feel about you and the government. They want smaller, more efficient government and fewer services. The people have come to realize that, especially with healthcare, if someone else pays the bills, then someone else calls the shots.  According to Rasmussen in 2010, 61% of voters believe tax cuts will grow the economy better than more spending and 59% believe that deficits hurt the economy.  Can anyone out there tell me what we got for almost a trillion dollars in Obama’s stimulus package?

America is Not a Nation Ruled by Judges Posted by Daniel Greenfield…..   ~   “”…The judicial coup can’t be appeased…

America is Not a Nation Ruled by Judges

When President Trump tweeted that his measure to protect Americans from Islamic terror was a “travel ban” and that it should never have been watered down, he was right.

Calling it a pause hasn’t appeased a single of the radical judges abusing their authority. It doesn’t matter what the lawyers call it, when courts insist on referencing President Trump’s campaign rhetoric instead. Watering down the ban achieved nothing. The judicial coup can’t be appeased with a “moderate” ban.

Stripping Iraq from the list of countries undermined the effectiveness of the measure considering that the vast majority of refugees being investigated for terror links in this country are Iraqis.

Most of the rest are from the other countries listed on the travel ban.

And the failure to protect Middle Eastern Christians by prioritizing them as refugees is a left-wing war crime. The lawyers, activists, media bosses and judges responsible for it have blood on their hands. Even as they mouth hollow platitudes about compassion, they have become complicit in Islamic genocide.

Waiting on the Supreme Court didn’t work. The temporary compromise measure violated presidential authority while giving the left the room it needed to continue its judicial coup by expanding “prior relationship” to mean anything while unconstitutionally undermining the refugee cap.

There are legitimate debates about the limits of presidential authority in every administration. It’s fair to question whether any president, of any party, should be able to engage in military action without Congress because the Constitution grants the legislative branch the authority to declare war. But there can be no doubt whatsoever that President Trump is…..

acting within his legal authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act which grants him the authority to “suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants” for as long as he thinks it’s necessary.

Obama made use of this power to temporarily halt Iraqi migration. So have other presidents in the past. Immigration is in the hands of Congress and the White House. It is not up to judges to decide who can come to America.

Our entire system of immigration “discriminates” based on religion and national origin. It allots visas and refugee status based on national origin and membership in persecuted religious groups.

If the judicial coup succeeds, elected officials will lose their authority over immigration. And that means that the American people will lose all control over immigration.

The implications go far beyond the travel ban.

Judge Derrick Watson, an Obama pal, didn’t just go after the ban, but asserted that he had the authority to decide how many refugees should be allowed in. The Supreme Court chose to split the difference there. It’s a short hop and a skip from there to judges deciding that they have the constitutional authority to set the annual number of refugees and immigrants to prevent “discrimination” by the elected branches.

If you want to imagine the end of America, that’s a good place to start.

Federal courts have been unconstitutionally treating states like this for far too long, intervening in everything from elections to prison populations, but now they’re using the general anti-Trump hysteria to assert judicial supremacy over the elected branches of government.

If this judicial coup is allowed to stand, anything that any White House official or member of Congress says at any time in the past, can and will be used by Federal courts to seize control over any policy.

And then we will be living under a permanent reign of judicial terror.

This was the nightmare loophole that opened up when we declared that preventing discrimination was such a compelling interest that it could be used to override nearly everything else. Now the legal butcher’s bill might be coming due. And when it arrives, the Bill of Rights will cease to exist and the elected branches of government will wither under the shadow of black robes and falling gavels.

That is what is at stake here.

President Trump isn’t just defending us against Islamic terror. It’s up to him to defend government of the people against two political coups; one that seeks to reverse the results of the election with a manufactured scandal based on a Hillary conspiracy theory and the other that aspires to make elections irrelevant through a judicial ruling class.

A civil war is underway. Trump, like Lincoln, isn’t just fighting an elitist Democrat ruling class embedded in secessionist enclaves of gated communities surrounded by political plantations of minority poor.

Both Republican presidents had to face off in a civil war against judicial supremacy.

During the Lincoln-Douglas debates, Abraham Lincoln asserted that the decision of the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case did not suffice to “have the citizen conform his vote to that decision; the member of Congress, his; the President, his use of the veto power”.

Lincoln then quoted Thomas Jefferson’s warning that, “to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions” would be “a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy”.

And that is exactly what judicial supremacy has done.

Thomas Jefferson cautioned that judges have “the same passions for party, for power” and “their power is the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.”

He stated firmly, “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that, to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign with themselves.”

Both the first Democratic-Republican and the first Republican presidents rejected judicial supremacy. They did so because it undermined a government of the people and imposed a judicial oligarchy.

What of the first Democrat president? In his veto of the Bank of the United States, President Andrew Jackson affirmed Jefferson’s “co-equal” and “co-sovereign” principle stating that, “the Congress, the Executive and the Court must each for itself be guided by its own opinion of the Constitution.”

Jackson’s portrait now hangs over President Trump in the Oval Office. It is up to Trump to defend Jefferson, Jackson and Lincoln’s understanding of the Constitution against judicial supremacy.

For too long the conservative position has been that we must defend the Constitution from judicial activism by putting the right sort of men on the Supreme Court. This approach has been somewhat successful. But trying to solve the abuse of judicial authority with judicial authority is like plugging a leak with water. Conservatives seek judicial saints who will never overstep the boundaries of their power while the left merely needs to find judges who will have no compunction about abusing their authority.

That is the judicial coup which has placed us in a political stalemate. Conservatives hope that the Supreme Court will follow the Constitution. And if it doesn’t, a whole new “law of the land” appears.

Even if the Supreme Court does the right thing, the challenges won’t end. And the judicial coup will have proven that its members can freeze any presidential policy for the better part of a year while the administration runs a gauntlet of political appointees who deliberately humiliate and undermine it.

And they won’t stop now.

Conservatives should continue seeking judges who will respect the Constitution. But truly respecting and protecting the Constitution means rejecting judicial supremacy. And the battle against judicial supremacy can’t be fought and won in the courts. Only the White House can defy the courts.

The Civil War was fought over the supremacy of the Constitution. Then, as now, the Democrat secessionists privileged the Supreme Court’s interpretation over the written text of the Constitution.

In his inaugural address, President Lincoln opposed judicial supremacy, warning………………..

What Next – Mr. President?, Part 2  by J.W. Bryan

https://newswithviews.com/what-next-mr-president-part-2/

What Next – Mr. President?, Part 2

Well, Mr. President, the plots thicken – all of them – the ones in opposition to you and your agenda and those by some in your administration who seem committed to preventing your agenda from coming to fruition. More on that later…

Toward the end of Part 1 of this series, I commented on the evidence of communist involvement in the street violence that we’re constantly seeing.  I failed to point out the fact that in live news broadcasts there had been reference to these violent participants as anarchists, without noting the fact that they were flying the red flag with the communist hammer and sickle or waving signs that had the internet address of communist websites, such as, but not limited to, revcom.us. This includes the so-called fair and balanced channel.

This is a certainty of collusion.  All these news reporters had to have been either trained, or instructed prior to the event being covered, to ignore certain things they didn’t want seen.  In this case, of course, it was the communist’s involvement in the violence in the streets.

The Hidden Communist Involvement

Back in the 90s, the time had arrived when those who manage the globalist agenda decided a ruse was needed, one which would make it appear that communism was dead – it was gone – nothing we should even think about.

Remember when Reagan said, “Mr. Gorbachov – tear down that wall.”  Yes, that was part of it too, and that command among other things, exalted President Ronald Reagan into the epitome of Republicanism, which among other things, was nothing but a facade and a fraud.  Nevertheless, it put many Americans asleep.

I was actually one of the ones who was lauding and applauding him. I remember writing a long letter to the local newspaper about how he was giving us an open window to a great future. But, in my 90 years I’ve seen a few things. So at last I understand some things.

Why is this important?  It’s important because it is continuing to be applied to today’s scenario and façade.

One almost never hears anyone express concern over the impending dangers of communism. Do the millennials even know the very definition of communism?  We might hear them say something negatively about the liberals, or the leftists, and sometime they might even include the socialists, but not about the communists.  It’s as though the communists don’t exist.

Most people, or at least 99% of them, are not aware that communism is as much a part of the agenda for globalist control, i.e., “the new world order,” as any of those other isims. Actually, communism is an out-growth of all of them combined.

In fact, the communists are the hand-maidens of the combined elements of the left; they can organize and implement events in the populace which result in certain changes throughout society, and will remain hidden and unseen as far as who and what is behind it for now. That said, it does not preclude the probability that the planning of the event which the communists are given authority to initiate and implement has not been planned by higher-ups in the hierarchy of the globalist agenda. All things carried out at the lower echelon must coincide with what is being done at the higher ones, otherwise it throws everything out of sync.

Sanctuary Cities and Refugees

How does all that play into and connect with the issue of sanctuary cities and the seeding into our country of thousands of so-called Islamic refugees by the Obama Administration and secretly placing them throughout our country?

It appears as though there are two objectives. Had Hillary been elected, the primary one would have been to use these people in gorilla type activities after disposing of the Second Amendment and disarming American citizens.  After these gorilla bands had simultaneously wreaked havoc in locations within the vicinity of sanctuary cities, they could individually fall back into them for concealment and protection.

With regard to disposing of the Second Amendment, the globalists have been at work for some time preparing to bring about a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of changing our Constitution to be more favorable to the goals of world government.  There are several new constitutions waiting in the wings, one was written decades ago by the Ford Foundation, and turns our God given rights into a few privileges granted by the all-powerful government. Socialists, Soros and minions, along with many faux conservatives are working to destroy our wonderful Constitution.

There is no doubt that the Second Amendment will be one of the main targets of the committee in charge of procedures governing the order of business. If they are successful in pulling off this traitorous scheme, we can expect them to confiscate our firearms. This action will leave the people at the mercy of whatever gangs and gorilla bands are roaming the towns and cities and will result in demands for law and order I have alluded to previously.

Of course, the purpose is to have the excuse of establishing a national police force, but it won’t be a police force to serve and protect the people, but one which is antagonistic to the people.  If citizens are somehow able to mount a defense against the protected gangs and gorilla units, the national police force will come down hard on those who fight.

None of this is supposition, it’s the exact modus operandi they’ll use.

As I stated in part one of this series, the incremental destruction of everything we consider to be American, our sovereignty, our individual God-Given rights and our culture are all at risk.

Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Mr. President, I greatly respect and fully support you in what you are attempting, but I am concerned how you are going about trying to bring your goals to fruition.

You are listening to the wrong people Mr. President!  Your advisors have surrounded you with enemy agents – wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Some of them, the neo-cons have been successful, over the years, in building up a conservative image.  They talk like conservatives to a point, by giving lip service to conservative principles when in reality they are planning to sabotage the policies of those same principles. They are simply spin-offs of Trotskyites, (slow communists), and in reality, nothing more than spin-offs of Lenin.

Then there are those you have appointed who are either members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), or they have strong connections to it.  I’m not going to go into the details for it would take separate article to do so.  Here is a link to an article by Kelleigh Nelson, recently published in NewsWithViews which covers much of it. Another one just recently publishedadds even more.

Mr. President, I hope this article is received by you, and that you, or someone close to you who is truly trustworthy, will follow up on these links and give them serious consideration. I think it is essential that you get this information, if you haven’t already.

Sir, you have already accomplished more for America and her people than any president since maybe Calvin Coolidge, and I think the reason he was able to do so much was because he did so little, or at least that’s what was said about him.

I hope that at some point in the future, hopefully after you are able to make America great again, that we can elect another President who will do much – by doing so little. But before that time, we have a whole lot of work to do.

Pro-Life Justices

We can’t begin to make America great again by putting into high position, or any position, those who are the antithesis of God and His principles. According to Kelleigh Nelson, in News with views, the list of possible appointees to the Supreme Court, which was submitted to you by the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society, included only two who were pro-life. That means the remainder of them who were recommended are not pro-life, that they are against the gift of God.

According to Frederick Bastiat, a nineteenth century French statesman, “We hold from God the gift which includes all others, this gift is life – physical, intellectual, and moral life…He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By the application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products – and use them. Life, faculties, production – in other words – individually, liberty, property, this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it.

Life, liberty and property are the three basic requirements of life, and the preservation of any one of them is completely dependent upon the preservation of the other two…and they do not exist because men have made laws, it was the fact that they existed beforehand that cause men to make laws in the first place.”

These judges who are not pro-life have to be pro-something else — something which is the antithesis of life. In fact, we might say that they are, to a certain extent – pro-death especially, to the unborn. This could also extend to those considered disabled mentally or physically. We must conclude that they are either approaching, or have already arrived at the condition of a reprobate and cannot be trusted to discern right from wrong.

Anyone with a reprobate mind (has crossed the line away from God) is going to line up with those that are anti-God and you don’t need them in your administration, you already have too many of them. It grows more apparent with each passing day that your administration, along with Congress and the Senate – is virtually littered with them.

Mr. President, someone has definitely been steering you in the wrong direction.

NAFTA

President Trump, I am very much concerned with what I see in the discussions of the trade agreement known as NAFTA . The way it is being presented, for the most part, is whether it is good for American jobs, business, or balance of trade between Canada, Mexico and the United States. It’s the same tactic which was being used when they were trying to slip the traitorous TPP by us.  It was all about trade, nothing was ever said about what it would do to our sovereignty.

 

There were 30 chapters in the TPP, but only 5 of them were about trade. According to Senator Sessions, it would make up a stack of 8 ½ by 11s, 42 inches high, but figuring 1.4 inches per chapter would mean there were only 7 inches about trade, leaving 35 inches about how our country would be changed – how our laws would have to be changed to coincide, with the laws of the other countries in the “Partnership.”

Mr. President, I have already begun mentally preparing a follow-up article about the NAFTA

Anthony Scaramucci: Breitbart ‘Captured the Spirit’ of America
Breitbart ^ | July 22,2017 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 7/22/2017, 3:02:54 PM by Hojczyk

As a former Wall Street financier, Scaramucci explained that he spent time during the campaign connecting directly with President Donald Trump’s supporters, realizing that they were just like his friends and neighbors in Long Island, NY, where he grew up.

“It was the president that showed me, who grew up in a middle-class area like that, what was going on in my own hometown,” he said.

Scaramucci discussed the challenges in his new job, including the ongoing fight against fake news in the mainstream media. He reminded Trump supporters that it was possible to go beyond the mainstream media as they did during the campaign.

“We’re having a rough time with the mainstream media, but last time I checked during the campaign we were having a rough time with the mainstream media and the people see through it,” he said.

Scaramucci publicly thanked Breitbart News for helping expose fake news stories like the CNN story about him that was ultimately retracted.

Part of his strategy, he explained, was to tighten up an “unfiltered message” that would “penetrate through that shell” of the media. He also said he would work with the media to “deescalate” the relationship and treat the administration fairly.

“You can look at it objectively, frankly, and see that it isn’t fair right now,” Scaramucci said.

He said the administration would continue to fight to fulfill the president’s campaign promises, including major initiatives on tax reform, health care, and border security.
