PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR USING MORE THAN TWO SQUARES

December 17, 2018

While on her Global Warming College Tour in 2007, Sheryl Crow told the audience that the average person should use “only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required”.

Though applauded by her fellow Al Gore and save-a-tree groupies, she was ridiculed by all who wish to do a thorough job of cleanup in the restroom. If you use only one or two squares it becomes very important that you use an abundance of warm soapy water to cleanse your hands…not environmentally recommended. Beyond that, the need for extra attention to clothes washing must be considered.

I’m reminded of this little star studded idiocy episode due to the multitude of President Trump investigations. It seems now that a group of highly partisan Democrats headed by Robert Mueller might be screening the sewers under the White House and Mar-a-Lago to identify if the president is, or has been, following the one or two squares rule. They’re seeking anything possible to use against him and/or his family or associates that CNN and MSNBC can use to fill their air time for 24-48 hours..

The latest lurch to non-conclusion is an investigation into possible inappropriate spending of inaugural committee donations. It seems that President Trump may have spent too little on inaugural balls, fluff and hoopla and gave too much of the donated money to charities providing relief services to hurricane victims.  IMPEACH 45! IMPEACH 45!

While I have admittedly received more than one deserved ticket for excessive speed, I generally follow the local, state and federal laws. I expect others to have similar respect for our laws and the enforcement of them. If President Trump or Michael Cohen or Hillary Clinton or Lois Lerner or Charlie Rangel or any members of any of the myriad alphabet agencies under the executive branch or any group or individual throughout our government are, or have been, subverting our laws they must be punished. The statute of limitations should include, but not exceed the perpetrator’s lifetime!

The law must be applied equally to members of all political parties and just discipline must be carried out. Likewise, any prosecutorial misconduct must also be harshly punished.

For nearly 26 months now, our current president has been under constant siege.  The swamp creatures are seeking anything…anything…on which he might be held criminally liable. From collusion to crapping, thus far no evidence has been presented that he has done anything different from any of his predecessors of any political party or governmental position. He is despised because he is an outsider and the insiders want to get rid of him.

If there is any severe bending or breaking of any law by any of our elected officials or the bureaucrats whom they hire, there should be swift justice meted. I’m not referring to a verbal or even written reprimand or censure put into a file and forgotten. I’m calling for punishment that cannot be waved in front of, and lauded by, fellow party members as a badge of honor. In my view, a lengthy stay in general population at the medium security United States Penitentiary, Fort Leavenworth is an apt adjudication for those who have abused their fiduciary responsibility.

Continually searching the sewers of Washington D.C. for evidence of double use of poop paper when there is no direct tie to the president is ridiculous, wasteful of both taxpayer money and government resources and, at this point, needless. It is time to wrap up the politically motivated special counsel so that congress and others can get back to their regular and normal in-fighting and wastefully spending our tax dollars.

If evidence is available, after more than two years of intense investigation, that President Trump unnecessarily used four squares, send him to Kansas. Otherwise Mueller must shut it down and let Trump continue making America great again even if he’s unconventional or not presidential in his approach.

GET ELECTED TO CONGRESS AND VOTE FOR YOURSELF

November 27, 2018

Compared to men and women in uniform who willingly risk their lives to retain our way of life and give citizens around the globe humanitarian opportunities, our government elite are excessively compensated. For instance, a U.S. military member with a pay grade of E-6 (five earned pay grades above entry level) having given more than two years service to our country receives a base pay of only $2,802/mo.($33,264/yr.) This is scheduled to be raised for 2019 by 2.4% to a whopping $2,869/mo. A serviceman’s work schedule includes readiness twenty-four hours a day and often includes weeks on end without a stand down.

Compare that to the average Amazon carton handler who now earns $15.00/hr. That’s 2,580/mo. or nearly $31,000/yr. for placing boxes on a conveyor belt 8 hours a day.  When the bell rings ending the shift, they’re outta there!  An over-the-road trucker earns an average of $23.00/hr or almost $78,000 annually if they really go at it.  Consider what the average retail store manager is paid.  Good ones make approximately $46,000 a year.

Military accommodations often consist of living in tents, bathing in streams or ponds when available with clothing changes welcomed whenever possible. Granted, they do receive an extra stipend when deployed to areas or subjected to situations where death is imminent.

Why should congressional members protected by the secret service and capitol police make so much more?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears designer ensembles costing more than the average soldier makes in a month to her campaign venues. While campaigning, she has been seen wearing outfits of estimated cost exceeding $3,500 including shoes with a price tag of $625. Though she dresses for success, she’s whining that she cannot afford to live in the city or suburbs surrounding her new job.

Not even seated yet, the socialist darling of the left is suggesting legislation that would give congressional members a housing allowance in excess of the freshman base pay of $174,000. And, the members vote themselves raises at will. *Congress is required by Article I, Section 6, of the Constitution to determine its own pay.

Some current members, known to sleep in their offices and bathe in the gym locker room (not the Potomac River), have suggested a housing allowance while in session amounting to $2,500 per month.

Returning to reason perhaps we, the American voters, should consider something along the lines of a government housing facility for our downtrodden elected leaders like the projects offered by H.U.D. There are numerous vacant government owned buildings in and about Washington D.C. that could easily be converted into dorms or apartments.

For those choosing this option, the accommodations might be paid for by deducting $1,500 – $2,500 per month ($18,000 – 30,000/yr) from the base we now pay them. Nancy would consider it just “crumbs”. Most of them can probably scrape by on the remaining measly $144,000 per year. A transportation allowance of $5.00 per round trip to and from the dorm and capitol could be an additional benefit for consideration.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s next proposal is probably for a congressional clothing allowance and meal per diem to go along with the housing allowance. After all, we must redistribute the wealth from those who worked hard to earn their bounty. Soon thereafter, I’m sure, she’ll and the others will consider working for the people who elected them instead of what they can do to benefit themselves.  Yeah, right!

Congressional staffers and interns live and commute under the same circumstances and seem to get by on their pay of $30,000 – $85,000 per year without such perks. And they do much, if not most, of the work for which the elected elite receive their salaries.

OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM 2018 STYLE

October 29, 2018

In 1966, Richard Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven, developed a strategy to overload the public Welfare system and precipitate a crisis leading to the replacement of the system with a national guaranteed income that, in their minds, would end poverty in the U.S. This became well known as “The Cloward and Piven Strategy”.

Need it be said that they were both professors indoctrinating the leaders of today with the ways of Communism. As teachers at the Columbia University School of Social Work, they were able to instill Utopian thoughts in the accepting minds of today’s Progressive/Socialist/Democrats.

Their ploy has since become the mainstream thought and platform of the current Democrat party. As president, Obama did his level best to over-regulate private business causing mass unemployment and need for government “safety net” programs. With the help of community organizers, President Obama increased the demand on the nation’s entitlement Welfare system and carried the concept of induced poverty to include WICS, section 8 housing subsidies, Obamaphones and encouraged many former workers to partake of disability payments through the Social Security fund.

One Democrat, Senator Ben Cardin, recently suggested that we welcome the hordes of impoverished Central and South Americans of the caravan into our country, thus, further straining our current resources. Beyond that, he also called for “investing” more U.S. income earners’ money by giving the thieves heading the pseudo-democratic socialist dictatorships of our neighbors to the south greater opportunity to continue the practices that harm the citizenry of those countries.

Today’s amplified and exaggerated version of the strategy promulgated by the pair of anarchists envelopes more than the monetary subsidies extended by federal agencies. It is also burdening education, health care and the court systems. It is straining the civil, criminal and federal courts by introducing otherwise illegal foreigners to the courts in addition to citizens and legal residents.

Currently, there is said to be a backlog in the immigration courts exceeding 700,000 cases. Add to that the human procession estimated at 7,000-10,000 headed north from Mexico’s southern border. Their intent (actually the intent of the multi-billionaire globalists funding the incursion) is to destroy our sovereignty; to break down the borders that define our country and create chaos and anarchy. Many, if not most, of the intruders will be awarded benefits paid for by you and your fellow citizens.

The socialists among our population and elected leaders are destined to use the inevitable “crisis” created to further their goals of remaking our country into one from which people, in just a few short years, will try to escape.

There is only a week left to mark your ballot for continued economic growth, prosperity and rule of law or the likeness of Venezuela.

THE WRAP UP SMEAR

October 16, 2018

For those people who believe Democrats, or want to believe Democrats, there is one who meets your desires. Sometimes even a malicious stumbling, bumbling Democrat like Nancy Pelosi unwittingly stutters their way to the truth.

From the Daily Wire on Oct 8, 2018 – In her own words, Pelosi described the ruthless and untruthful smearing of Republicans as a “common diversionary tactic”.

“It’s a diversionary tactic,” she starts. “It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy, you demonize and then — the ‘wrap-up smear.’ You wanna talk politics? We call it the ‘wrap-up smear.'”

“You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest,” Pelosi detailed, “and then you merchandise it. And then you (gesturing to the media) write it, and then they say, ‘See, it’s reported in the press that this, this, this, and this.’ So they have that validation that the press reported the smear, and then it’s called the ‘wrap-up smear.'”

“And now I’m going to merchandise the press’s report on the smear that we made,” she repeated. “It’s a tactic. And it’s self-evident.”

This is exactly what they did to Judge Kavanaugh. It is what they do at virtually every “rally” or “march” in which they participate. The progressives (read: anarchic socialists), paid by billionaires like Steyer and Soros through various organizations, sample assorted words and sayings to identify the most outlandish and yet effective chants. Those selected as best are etched into the memory banks of a few “leaders” who then direct the minions in repetition. The agreeing media then airs the crowd over and over again until they feel the average idiot believes what they hear.

Other ways that the loathsome left in office and in the media promulgate lies and discord is by repeating words and catch phrases that provoke contempt, anger and violence. You’ve heard them all. Here are just a few.

*Russia, Russia, Russia

*Ripping babies from the arms of mothers

*Black churches will burn

*Throwing granny over a cliff

*Millions will lose their health care

*Women will no longer have a choice

*It’s for the children-or the needy-or the elderly

*Assault rifles

Additionally, there are those in elected office and other professional politicians (primarily of the Democrat party) who subtly advocate or promote indignation and even violence. Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer and most recently our old friend Hillary (the loser) Clinton are among the celebrities rousing their crowds.

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” according to Clinton. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

I read the above statement to say that unless the Democrats regain unfettered power in government et al, there will continue to be constant whining, crying and mobs throwing tantrums and creating chaos throughout the country. Give us back control or we’ll see to it that normalcy is never restored.

Adam Schiff recently promised “ruthless investigations” if Democrats take over the House in January and Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker once again.

Is it right to threaten chaos, violence and endless disruption and stagnation of government just because the American electorate chooses placid growth and prosperity? Is this really the party we want running our country?

PLEASE VOTE WISELY ON NOVEMBER 6!  VOTE TO BE GOVERNED OR VOTE TO BE RULED, THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

DREAMERS AND OTHER LAW BREAKERS

April 3, 2018

For those of you who want to immediately call CNN and report your imagined hatred read into the title above please, at least this one time, take a moment to absorb some reason from this writing.

Using just a bit of logic, try to adapt the following situation to the current immigration debate.

A white Scandinavian adult male (we’ll call him Bjorn) here on an expired visa enters a locally owned independent grocery store. He just wants a better life for himself and his family. Along with him is his fourteen year old daughter, Margareta.

Bjorn gathers a pork roast, corn, some potatoes, carrots and perhaps a gallon of milk along with some hygiene products and cleaning supplies from the shelves. Margareta meanwhile places some gum, chips and an umbrella into the basket. Together they run out of the store as fast as they can with Bjorn pushing the shopping cart. They get three blocks away from the store and within a block of their home before being apprehended by a local constable. In their flight, they cross out of the city limits into county territory.

Using your brain, not your emotion, relate this situation to what you inherently know is right for our immigration system. Below are a few questions to ask yourself. I have already provided some plausible comparable situations.

1. After being questioned by authorities, should they be free to go with their largess because they were not caught within the confines of the store or even the city where the crime occurred? Illegal aliens, having made their way across our border are given a Notice to Appear and sent on their merry way. Many never show up in court and remain at large for years using stolen or forged documents to obtain work and government services.

2. If the pair was not caught and questioned within three weeks or two months, does that effectively erase the crime? Advocates for illegal immigrants often use the argument that he/she has been in the U.S. for X amount of time and, therefore, should be allowed to remain.

3. Should the store owner or manager be held liable because the front door was open for patrons or the back door was unlocked because a delivery was being made at the time? Many advocates for the illegal aliens say it is the fault of the U.S. for not adequately securing the borders. Then, when discussion regarding security measures begin, the people wanting to defend our borders are called racists or xenophobes.

4. Should the adult be punished for his misdeed? He was only trying to provide for his family. This is a favorite argument on behalf of the illegal immigrants. Bjorn showed his daughter that it is acceptable to break the law as long as the personal goal can be self-justified as honorable.

5. Should the minor child’s theft be forgiven because this is the only life she knows? She shows no remorse for her actions. She may even demand public support as a victim of immigration laws that do not support her “right” to be here attempting to survive.

6. Should the minor child be awarded benefits beyond those of her peers because her father is a petty criminal and taught her that it’s okay if the stated end goal is self betterment? Education, school lunches, health care, housing subsidies, subsistence payments?

7. Did Margareta have the opportunity to comply with moral codes and existing law; to apply for permanent legal residency? Did her dad? This is a question that advocates for illegal immigrants refuse to ask or answer.

Ya gotta love the cries of the “Dreamers”. Their illegal entry was forgiven by a lawless president. They have been taught by our public schools (at taxpayer expense and the educational cost to other students, I might add) that just because they came here as youth or young adults, through no fault of their own, that they are owed all the rights and benefits associated with citizenship.

They are owed! They are owed lawyers at taxpayer expense. They are owed a SNAP card and account. They are owed an education. They are owed driver licenses. They are owed health care and medical treatment. They are owed free tuition or instate tuition at state colleges and universities. They are even owed an “Obama Phone”, cable access and high speed internet connection (in some cases, a computer to make the connection). They are owed an interpreter and “first-in-line” placement and accommodations for not speaking and understanding the language. They are owed the benefit of doubt when committing minor crimes.

Let’s use some intelligence and start with the premise that they are law breakers, minors or not! Rectify the first misdemeanor. Go home and start the legal process. Then we can work on the rest.

Yes, we can and should help some of the people escaping extreme danger or tyranny. But we are not obligated to accept everybody who wants to live here and change our laws and culture to match those they fled. English is our language. Enforced laws used to be our way of order.
