No, There Is No Precedent for Donald Trump

In response to Sean Wilentz a professor of history at Princeton who wrote this opinion about our President:

“No, There Is No Precedent for Donald Trump”

In it he says, “Coming to terms with this requires, in part, finally admitting to ourselves that, although the constitutional trappings were respected, the events of 2016 resembled a foreign-abetted coup d’état more than they did an American presidential election.” and I respond:

I am a Trump supporter, the Russian did not influence my vote as I was a supporter from the day he came down the escalators. I believe that Trump would do all the things he said he would do, and he is. He dumped the Paris Accord like he said he would. He dropped us out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership like he said he would. He is renegotiating NAFTA like he said he would. He is ending the war on Christianity like he said he would. He is ending Obama Care like he said he would. He is making NATO members pick up the cost of there membership like he said he would. He is taking the EPA out of the ditch in my backyard like he said he would. He let the Keystone Pipeline be built like he said he would. He ended the war on coal like he said he would. He opened federal lands to fracking like he said he would. He is appointing they type of judges he said he would. He is cutting back federal regulation like he said he would. He is going to reform our immigration system like he said he would. He has changed the vetting procedures for immigrating and refuge-seekers like he said he would.

These are just to mention a few of him doing what he said he would do. You are right “Trump represents a sharp break in our national political history” he is actually doing all the things he said that he would do when he ran for office. The wall will be built, and as much at the Progressive hate him he will win another term. And if you think that the Democrats will be picking up seats in the midterm election, you are wrong, Trump supporter will be out RINO hunting in the primary, and put people in who will support the Trump agenda, which is our agenda.

Who am I, I am nobody, I am the forgotten man, the man that Trump speaks for like no other politician in the 75 years I have been on this earth. And if you think that Trump is just willing the hearts and minds of old codgers like me you are wrong. I may be old, but I am not a fuddy-duddy, nor am I uneducated like so many Progressives like to paint Trump supporters. I hold two undergraduates degrees and an MBA. I have been reading history for many a long years, and it appears to me that you have let your biases direct your opinion about Trump. When you say, “Never before has an American Administration lied as continuously and as brazenly as Trump and his minions have, not simply as self-protection but as calculated insults to reason, gaslighting not just the nation but the entire world.” you are painting me as a minion because of my steadfast support of Trump. Gaslighting, interesting misuse of the meaning of the expression which came from the movie “Gaslight” an American 1944 mystery-thriller film, adapted from Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play Gas Light, about a woman whose husband slowly manipulates her into believing that she is going insane.

Wikipedia says, “Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, hoping to make them question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.” If there is any Gaslighting going on here it is coming from the likes of you and your fellow travelers who completely supported Obama’s drastic moves to fundamentally change America into European style Socialist style of government, which Trump is completely, or as complete as he can, dismantle.

DREAMers protest to keep Obama’s DACA program alive

I would like to address these two signs that the DREAMers are using in their protest to keep Obama’s DACA program alive:

The sign to the left is using a false equivalence fallacy, not sure if she know what a fallacy is or not, we do. Of course her dreams are not illegal, but if she is undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, a group often described as Dreamers, she is an illegal alien. They did nothing wrong, goes the argument, and should not be punished for the crimes of their parents. To which I rebut: If I, living in a multimillion dollar home, bought that home with money I obtained by fraud, and get cough should my children be allowed to keep the home as they had did nothing wrong?

Now to the sign on the right that has a copy of  the 1794 Pownell Wall Map of North America and the West Indies, and says, “We did not cross the border, the border crossed us”. True enough if you or you are a direct descendants of people living there then. Which is highly unlikely. Let me tell you a little about this story of this map. From Antique Maps of the Americas:

As you can see, the Spanish did a lot of border changing themselves, taking all of the Indian’s land for their own. From his skin tone I would hazard to guess that he had descended more from the Conquistadors then the Indian side that had to give up their lands to the Spanish.

DESCRIPTION


An extraordinary monumentally proportioned 1794 map of North American by Governor Pownell. Issued shortly after the end of the American Revolutionary War, this map details the newly formed United States, the British dominions in Canada, the French territory of Louisiana, the West Indies, and Spanish holdings in Mexico, Florida, and Central America. As one might expect from a map of this size the detail throughout is extraordinary. All text is in English.

We begin our examination of this map in the newly formed post colonial United States. The United States at this time extended from the Pacific to the Mississippi River and from Georgia to the Great Lakes and Maine. The early state boundaries roughly conform to their original colonial charters. Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina are drawn with indefinite western borders, suggesting claims to further unexplored land beyond the Appellation Mountains. By this time most of the boundary issues in the New England states had been resolved, though there remained some vagaries regarding the Massachusetts Connecticut border and, though Vermont is noted textually, its boundaries are not drawn in. At this time there were also some unresolved issues regarding the national borders between Maine and Nova Scotia. In Pennsylvania, the western border displays some surveying confusions that would not be resolved until the early 1800s and the creation of Ohio.

It is beyond the old colonial centers where this map really gets interesting. Pownall offers copious notations on the lands and territories between the Appellation range and this Mississippi River. In some cases he offers commentary on the various indigenous tribes including the Creeks, Chickasaws, Chocktaws, Senekas, Eriez, Delawares, Shawnee, Iroquois, Algonquians, Ottawas and others. The cartographer was clearly concerned with the development of these western regions and offers copious commentary on fit sites for factories, the alliances and temperaments of tribes, and the navigability of various river systems, particularly the Mississippi and Ohio.

The Great Lakes are mapped with considerable accuracy though several apocryphal islands do appear in Lake Superior. The most notable of these are Phelipeaux and Pontchartrain. Phelipeaux Island first appeared in French maps of this region in the 1740s. Later it was mentioned as a boundary marker in the 1783 Treaty of Paris which ended the American Revolutionary War. The nonexistence of these islands was not conclusively proven until about 1820.

To the west of the Mississippi we pass into the largely unknown lands of the Great Plains. In what is roughly modern day Missouri, between Memphis and St. Louis, there is an interesting note suggesting that this region is ‘Full of Mines,’ with a secondary note suggesting that these mines gave rise to the ‘Mississippi Scheme’ of 1719. This refers to the Mississippi Company (Compagnie du Mississippi) or, as it was more commonly known the Indies Company (Compagnie d’Occident). This organization was part of a French investment plan comparable to the South Seas Company which was developing contemporaneously in England. The Mississippi Company’s charter was to trade the riches of the Louisiana Territory. The main proponent of the Mississippi Company, John Law, greatly exaggerated the wealth of Louisiana by describing a rich mining region easily accessible along the Mississippi from New Orleans. This resulted in a stock buying rush which disproportionately overvalued Mississippi Company stock, resulting in one of the world’s first ‘Bubble Economies.’

Further North, along the northern border between the United States and British America (Canada), Rain Lake, the Lake of the Woods, and Lake Winnepeg are noted. This region was a hotbed of exploration throughout the 18th century. French and English concerns in the New World were desperate for access to the Pacific and the rich Asian markets. These markets had long been dominated by the Spanish who had easy access to the Pacific via Mexico and South America. The French and English set their hopes on a Northwest Passage. By the late 18th century the search for a route through the high Arctic had long been abandoned. Instead, explorers and theoretical cartographers believed that a water route might be found among the elaborate network of lakes and rivers that meandered through central Canada. Our map shows evidence of some of this exploration, particularly the travels of the Quebec born Pierre de La Verendrye and his sons around Lake Alimipigon, the Lake of the Woods (Lake Minitti) and Lake Winnipeg (Lake Ouinipigon).

As we progress even further west, passing out of Louisiana into the Spanish holdings we begin to see significant mapping – both conjectural and factual. The Spanish had long been passively active in the exploration of New Mexico. Though no concerted effort had been put forth to map the region, various missionaries and territorial governors had, over roughly 200 years of occupation added considerable data, both fact and fiction to the cartographic picture. Numerous American Indian groups are noted including the Pimas, the Apaches ,the Navajo and others. Along the Rio del Norte or upper Rio Grande there are a quantity mission stations including the regional capital of Santa Fe.

Just to the west of these missions we begin to enter more mythical territory and both Cibola and Teguayo are noted. Cibola and Teguayo are both associated with the legendary Seven Cities of Gold. It was believed that in 1150 when Merida, Spain, was conquered by Moors ,the city’s seven bishops fled to unknown lands taking with them much of the city’s riches. Each Bishop supposedly founded a great city in a far away place. With the discovery of the New World and the fabulous riches plundered by Cortez and Pizarro, the Seven Cities became associated with New World legends. Coronado, hearing tales of the paradise-like mythical Aztec homeland of Azatlan somewhere to the north of Mexico , determined to hunt for these cities in what is today the American southwest. In time indigenous legends of rich and prosperous lands became attached to the seven cities. Two of these appear on our map – Cibola and Teguayo.

The gulf of Mexico, the West Indies, and the Caribbean are charted with considerable and typical accuracy. Notes numerous offshore shoals, reefs, and other dangers – especially around the Bahamas. Also describes several important shipping routes, particularly the former routes of Spanish galleons from Veracruz to Havana, the route from Cartagena to Havana, and the route from Cartagena to Europe.

There are also two particularly interesting insets. The first, in the upper left quadrant, depicts the Canadian arctic, particularly the Hudson and Baffin Bays. Notes all of the most recent discoveries in this region and offers interesting notes such as ‘If there is Northwest Passage it appears to be through one of these inlets.’ In the northwestern quadrant of this inset, the supposed discoveries of Admiral de Fonte are included, despite a notation that they are ‘Imaginary.’

The second inset of interest in located in the lower left quadrant. This smaller maps depicts the northern parts of the Gulf of California and the Colorado River Delta based upon the explorations of the Jesuit Father Eusebius Francis Kino. The actual cartography of this region has been vague since the mid 17th century when it was postulated that California must be an Island. It was not until Kino’s historic expedition, recorded here, that Baja California was conclusively proven to be a peninsula.

A magnificent title cartouche appears in the upper right quadrant. The cartouche, which angles around Bermuda, depicts two stylized American Indians surrounded by the presumed flora and fauna of the new world. These include a small monkey, a parrot, and a jaguar. Above the cartouche is a textual quotation from Article III of the Treaty of Paris, affirming the rights of the United States to access the rich cod fields of Newfoundland’s Grand Banks.

This map is heavily based on a map originally drawn c. 1855 by Bowen and Gibson. It went through numerous revisions and reissues over the subsequent 50 years reflecting new discoveries and the changing political climate. Prepared by Governor Pownall and published by Laurie & Whittle in Kitchin’s 1894 General Atlas.

The argument for keeping the DREAMers is even stronger for ending abortions

Watching CNN a little bit ago interviewing a supporter of Obama DACA program who was making the argument as to why the 2 million or so DREAMers should be allowed stay in America. The case goes like this:

How the DREAM Act helps the economy:

Passing the federal DREAM Act would add a total of $329 billion to the American economy by 2030. This infographic explains how the act provides such a boost to the nation, by granting legal immigration status to 2.1 million young people and incentivizing higher education. The $148 billion in higher earnings that result from DREAMers being able to work legally and achieve greater education leads to increased spending on goods and services such as houses, cars, and computers. This spending ripples through the economy, supporting another $181 billion in induced economic impact, the creation of 1.4 million new jobs, and more than $10 billion in increased revenue.

Now I ask you, how many babies do we abort every year in America? Overall, more than 50 million babies have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. What has been the economic impact of that?

If 2 million DREAMers would add that much to the economy how much more would the 50 million babies killed have added?

Charlottesville, Virginia Hell

“President Trump condemned the ‘egregious,” racially-charged clashes in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday, but avoided putting more blame on any particular group, saying hatred by “many sides’ was to blame.” Trump got it right saying “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,”

But, Lord Good God Almighty he did not put the blame completely on the White Nationalist, Altright, et al., But laid equal amount of blame on Antifa, BLM, et al… See, here is the thing, the White Nationalist had a permit to hold their rally, and the fact that Charlottesville would allow such a hated group to assemble and speak enraged Antifa, BLM, et al., causing them to descend in mass upon Charlottesville. Instead of the police protecting the permit holders they stood aside and let the Antifa have at the White Nationalist, then canceled their permit calling it an unlawful assembly, but let the Antifa, BLM, et al. group march through town unhindered. This, in turn, enraged James Alex Fields Jr. so much that he rammed his car into the marchers killing a woman.

I am not excusing James Alex Fields Jr.’s actions; I am pointing out that it did not happen in a vacuum, but you will not hear the officials of Charlottesville accepting any blame for what went down, nor will you hear any blame being cast upon Antifa, BLM, et al., no! Oh hell no! It is all the White Nationalist’s fault for having the audacity to actually make use of their First Amendment rights!

But is anyone afraid of President Donald Trump

Susan Milligan a Senior Writer at us news says, “Trump puts the bully into bully pulpit – but experts say his approach has problems.”

Here is a little history lesson for her which she could have easily known. The meaning of words and phrases change over time. When President Theodore Roosevelt, who referred to his office as a “bully pulpit”, by which he meant a terrific platform from which to advocate an agenda, the word bully meant good. It referred more to the “outstanding” bully-for-you sense of “bully” than for any aggressiveness on Roosevelt’s part, and this describes Trumps use of the “bully pulpit” as well. One might say Trump has mastered a “bully tweet” to make his agenda know and propagated; that is, a damn good way to get the word out.

She goes on to say, “He talks tough, and tweets tougher. He makes demands on Congress and state governments, needles foreign nations and launches broad attacks on the press. But is anyone afraid of President Donald Trump?”

Which leads me to ask, if they are not afraid of him why are they so hell-bent on impeaching him? He has upturned their apple cart, cutting the government work force starting with the White House staff, EPA, State Department, but to name a few. Slashing regulations off the books at a rate unknown in my lifetime.

Then she quotes,”‘That’s going to be a problem with Congress [and] the G-20,” the group of world leaders Trump is meeting with in Germany this week. “Already our allies are feeling pretty uncomfortable about his positions and approaches,’ Peterson says.”

Well hell yes, they are uncomfortable about his positions and approaches with the Trans-Pacific Partnership gone, and his dumping their beloved Paras Accord. They are just going to have to deal with it; he was not elected to be president of the world.

Then there is this lie, “The president’s voter fraud commission demanded that states turn over personal information on voters, including party ID and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. States are rebelling, and not just the blue-tinted ones: so far, 44 states have refused to hand over all or some of the requested information.”

According to her, any state that will not provide sensitive, non-public voter data like social security numbers has refused the commission’s request. However, the panel only requested public voter information, and most states have not refused to provide this data. But even as some states will decline to provide non-public voter data, most acknowledge that voter rolls are available to the public for non-commercial purposes. As a result, even some states that oppose the request won’t refuse to give the commission public voter data.

“The decision by states not to provide sensitive information is not a refusal to comply as CNN claims because the commission never sought non-public information. “We’re not asking for it if it’s not publicly available,” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who serves as the vice chair of the commission, told The Kansas City Star. CNN grossly inflates the number of states that have refused.”

So she lies by selecting which truths she will tell, and how she strings her words together. Progressives will see her words as gospel, and not bother to check into the fact the claims to present, but she is preaching to the choir as, I hazard, very few non Democrats read her propaganda.

Further she goes on, “Trump’s orientation is to bully – ‘I’m going to run somebody against you. I’m going to hurt you.’ That’s not where you lead from,” says Texas A&M University political science professor George C. Edwards III, author of “On Deaf Ears: The Limits of the Bully Pulpit” (Yale University Press). But bullying does not translate into an effective bully pulpit once someone is in the Oval Office, Edwards says. “Presidents rarely move public opinion in their direction. That’s fundamental,” Edwards says. “You cannot govern based on the premise of expanding your coalition, but not everything presidents do lack public support. Turns out many things this president does lack public support.”

Milligan misstates Trump’s often claimed philosophy of “If I am hit, I hit back” into ‘I’m going to run somebody against you. I’m going to hurt you.’ This is a good example of twisting someone’s words into something they did not say, mean, or do. Why is it bulling to tel the never Trumper Republican that he will campaign against them in the primaries?

Then she goes back to this trope, “Not only did Trump lose the popular vote, Peterson notes, but he lost it by a bigger margin than anyone who has nonetheless won the presidency by securing the Electoral College majority. While his party hung onto majorities in the House and Senate, the GOP lost seats in both chambers in the 2016 elections. And his approval ratings are dismal, hitting the upper-middle 30s.”

They just cant get over loosing the election, undoubted she wants to scrap the Electoral College, but that would lead to a different type of campaigning, where only a few states with the biggest cities would be relevant to winning the office.

I would also point out that the ones doing the polls on Trump’s approval ratings are the same ones that had Hillary winning by a landslide.

Trump Did Not Curtsey to King Salman

Jesus Christ Almighty!!!

A curtsey is a traditional gesture of greeting, in which a girl or woman bends her knees while bowing her head. It is the female equivalent of male bowing in Western cultures, not a tall man lowering his head to allow a shorter man to put a chain with his country’s highest honor around his neck!

Trump is a head taller that King Salman.

Note they do not run the full clip of Trump receiving the medal, just show screen grabs of the images they wish to project. Propaganda techniques, show what you want seen, don’t show what would belie your assertions..

Concerning the Trade Deficit: Reagan v. Trump

This would be President Reagan from a press conference on September 17th, 1985.

Q. For the first time in 70 years, we have become a deficit nation—since 1914. Does this disturb you? Throughout your political life, you have decried deficit spending and our secondary posture in the world of trade. Do you have a solution for this?

The President. You used the word “deficit”; you mean our trade imbalance?

Q. Yes, the fact that we have become a debtor nation for the first time since 1914.

The President. Are we? I think this false impression that’s being given that a trade imbalance means debtor nation. This isn’t our government that is expending more than it is for imports than it is getting back in exports. These are the people of our country and the businesses and the corporations and the individual entrepreneurs.

On one hand, the American people are buying more than the American people are selling. Incidentally, those figures of export and import have some failings in them, some weak spots. They don’t include on exports anything that we’re getting back for services. There’s a lot of technical things I won’t get into, because they get too complicated here, about the difference in the two figures.

But let me point something out about this. The deficit that I’m concerned about, that is the most important, and that can be the biggest problem for us and that must be solved, is the deficit in Federal spending-here, our domestic spending. This is the threat to everything that we hold dear.

But the trade imbalance—from 1890—or 1790 to 1875, this country, all that 85 years, ran a trade imbalance. And in those years, we were becoming the great economic power that we are in the world today. Now, we come up to the present. And in the last 33 months, we have seen more than 8 million new jobs created.

Yes, we’ve lost since 1979 1.6 million jobs in manufacturing, but we’ve added 9 million new jobs in travel and service industries. We’ve had this great recovery; we’ve brought inflation down; the interest rate is coming down—all of these things that we want.

This recovery, the greatest one we’ve known in decades, has been done with this same trade imbalance. Now, in the 1930’s, in that depression that I mentioned earlier in my remarks, in that depression, 25-percent unemployment—the worst depression the world has ever known—we had a trade surplus every one of those 10 years until World War II ended the depression.

So, I think this has been exaggerated, and it isn’t a case of us being a debtor nation.

Another thing we don’t count is that from abroad, that is not counted in our export figures are the billions of dollars of foreign capital that has been invested in the United States, invested in our private industries, invested in our government bonds, if you will, things of this kind, because we are the best and safest investment in the world today.

That would be the polar opposite to the position of President Trump. They can’t both be correct. One of them is right and one of them is wrong. Which is it?

This is from Trump’s speech on 1/28/2017:

Tonight, as I outline the next steps we must take as country, we must honestly acknowledge the circumstances we inherited.

Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.

Over 43 million people are now living in poverty, and over 43 million Americans are on food stamps.

More than one in five people in their prime-working years are not working.

We have the worst financial recovery in 65 years.

In the last 8 years, the past Administration has put on more new debt than nearly all other Presidents combined.

We’ve lost more than one-fourth of our manufacturing jobs since NAFTA was approved, and we’ve lost 60,000 factories since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

Our trade deficit in goods with the world last year was nearly $800 billion dollars.

In my opinion, they are both right considering the circumstances of their administrations. Reagan’s dragon was Stagflation, “as a political matter, the inflation hawks attribute the drop in inflation from 12.5 percent in 1980 to 3.8 percent in 1982 to Reagan’s courage in backing Volcker.

Background

Since the 1970s, inflation was a major problem. In 1980, Consumer Price Inflation was over 14%. The new president, Ronald Reagan, had to put into place policies that stimulate an inflation/recession – or stagflation – economy, something never before occurring in US economic history. In 1981, he asked Congress for a 10% tax cut so that people and businesses could put more money into the market. He wanted people to spend discretionary income to stimulate the economy so that new jobs and businesses would be needed. In the end of 1981, he saw a quickly improving market.The problem, however, was inflation. As stated by economist William Butcher: “In order to cure inflation, some recession is needed.” In 1983, Reagan allowed the second largest tax increase in history to counteract the inflation. Then, through the magic of the Laffer Curve, the recession of 1982 curbed inflation dramatically after a slight tax increase just strong enough to break the recession.

By 1984, inflation was under 4%; investments were higher; US families had higher take home pay; and, the income of the elderly rose. In 1984, Ronald Reagan won re-election by sweeping the electoral college – losing only Minnesota (his opponent’s home state) and the District of Columbia.

Reagan did not have to confront the fact that American companies were leaving America, taking their jobs with them, while still selling their products in America. If the American worker is working and making a good living by his labor then Reagan is right when he says, “On one hand, the American people are buying more than the American people are selling. Incidentally, those figures of export and import have some failings in them, some weak spots. They don’t include on exports anything that we’re getting back for services.” However, the dynamics change when all those jobs leave America for offshore locations. Now you have the government supporting American purchases with welfare payments, and while Reagan said, “Yes, we’ve lost since 1979 1.6 million jobs in manufacturing, but we’ve added 9 million new jobs in travel and service industries.” there is a large pay differential between a manufacturing job and being a travel agent or a waiter. How do those loses compare to what Trump pointed out, “We’ve lost more than one-fourth of our manufacturing jobs since NAFTA was approved, and we’ve lost 60,000 factories since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001”?

Reagan’s Labor Force Participation Rate was 78.7% in 1980, and it climbed to 83.6% in 1988 when he left office. Today it is 81.5% the same as it was in 2012 down from the 83.3 it was when Obama took office.

Muslims and the Constitution, and Progressive in General

Vincent Tolliver, a Muslim, has the same problem understanding what the Constitution can limit and what it cannot as most Progressives. You see, political parties, regardless of their strip, are not government organizations; they are private enterprises, and as such the 1st Amendment does not apply to them, and they are as free to limit speech as they are to promote it.

Having participated in a forum for potential DNC Chair candidates on Saturday, Tolliver was consequently expelled from the race by interim chair Donna Brazile, who described his comments as “disgusting.”
However, Tolliver has now pledged to take legal action against the DNC, claiming a violation of his constitutional First Amendment rights.

Tolliver confirmed he would be taking legal action to Breitbart News, saying that the “Democratic establishment are denying me due process and are attempting to suppress my voice, in violation of my First Amendment right,” adding that he stands by his views on Islam. “The DNC and the Democratic establishment are attempting to prevent me from freely expressing known and indisputable tenets of lslamic law. Moreover, through sleight of hand tactics, interim chair Donna Brazile falsely accused me of discriminating against Mr. Ellison and cast aspersions by suggesting I was intolerant of religious freedom,” he alleged.

This is another prime example of Cultural Jihad. He can talk all he wants about bringing a court action, but the DNC did not violate his First Amendment right, because the DNC is not the government. You come into my house, and I can kick you out over anything you may say and it is not a Constitutional violation; the MCL can revoke my membership if I speak as one of their members on a political matter, and it is not a Constitutional violation.

However, he is using Alinsky’s rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.”

Trump: Draining The Swamp

Trump continues with his swamp draining. If you still don’t understand how our CIA under Obama’s directive orchestrated the Orange Revolution driving a duly democratically elected President out of power in Ukraine, forcing him to take refuge in Russia in fear for his life, you just don’t bother checking into the truth of the matter. It was the CIA/NATO Regime change in Ukraine that led Russia to support the Russians living in the Crimea to revolt against Ukraine and break away. Russia’s only deep water port is in the Crimea, and they were not about to let it go to NATO without a fight.

In retaliation for Russia taking back their port Obama put economic sanction on them. I hate Communism as much as I do Islam, but there is no good guy bad guy in Ukraine, there is interests at play. Obama wanted to let Qatar build a pipeline through Syria to Turkey to sell their natural gas to the Europeans. Assad and Putin are allies, so to protect Russia’s natural gas market in Europe he said no. As a result Obama and Hillary exported their created civil war in Libya, which they started because Gadhafi was going to sell his oil for gold not the petrodollar, to Syria.

I wrote this three years back in 6/28/2014:

Today I am going to discuss Libya and why the powers that be decided that Moammar Gadhafi had to go, and tie it to other recent events. It was not, as we were led to be because he was killing and peaceful demonstrates.  We read lots of headlines like this, “Libya protests: More than 100 killed as army fires on unarmed demonstrator” , but you did not read many like this, “Gaddafi under siege: Two CIA-backed groups, an al-Qaeda-linked LIFG on top of power stakes” from The Asian Tribune, or this “CIA & MI6 in Libya: U.S.-British covert operations exposed”  where it says this:

“The New York Times, the Washington Post and other corporate news sources are now openly admitting that the opposition forces fighting the Libyan government are supported and coordinated by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Britain’s MI6 with in-country special forces.”

Connecting The Dots: Gadhafi, Benghazi, Syria, ISIS, Qatar, Turkey, Russian, and the Ukraine

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was overseeing the collection of weapons that we had giving our mercenary, virtually all the so-called rebels were from outside of Libya, and putting them on a ship to Turkey to are another set of mercenary when he got killed. Qatar spent billions of dollars in their attempt to dispose of Assad in order to build their pipeline, they are sitting on one of the world’s largest supply of natural gus, but can only ship it by sea.

Russia, in appreciation of Syria’s not allowing the pipeline being built to undercut its main export product that Obama’s sanctions could not touch, started giving military support. It was Obama’s mercenary from which ISIS was spawned.

Drain The Swamp, More Like Killing The Octopus

The Progressives have infiltrated into all aspect of our government, they are the Hidra in the “Captain America”, the ones that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.D. fight, they have burrowed in, and will be fighting Trump at every turn.

They have wormed there way into the Pentagon:

President Trump says he wants the US to have better relations with Russia and to halt military operations against Muslim countries. But he is being undermined by the Pentagon.

The commander of US forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, has lined up tanks on Poland’s border with Russia and fired salvos that the general says are a message to Russia, not a training exercise.

How is Trump going to normalize relations with Russia when the commander of US forces in Europe is threatening Russia with words and deeds?

The Pentagon has also sent armored vehicles to “moderate rebels” in Syria, according to Penagon spokesman Col. John Dorrian. Unable to prevent Russia and Syria from winning the war against ISIS, the Pentagon is busy at work derailing the peace negotiations.

The military/security complex is using its puppets-on-a-string in the House and Senate to generate renewed conflict with Iran and to continue threats against China.

The State Department is swarming with turncoats, as you know on February 1st, 900 State Department employees, in an act of extreme insubordination, signed a document stating that they did not support the temporary Muslim ban on travel into the United States. The White House is aware of this action and this led White House Press Secretary to state that they were aware of the action and that these employees needed to decide if they were going to get on board or leave. Mr. Spicer, they need to leave. President Trump has a major problem on his hands.

Monika Wesolowski has been a State Department employee for over a decade. Her work has been exemplary. However, Monika has 4 distinct handicaps. She is White, Christian, conservative and cute. In today’s State Department this is a toxic and even potentially lethal combination. Most importantly, she supports Donald Trump and for that, she is experiencing extreme workplace harassment and today, she faces termination for displaying a President Trump’s photo at her workstation.

Subsequently, Monika went to the ethics and legal department of the State Department and sought an opinion on displaying the photo of a sitting President in her workplace. The written opinion, see below, stated that what she was doing was not a violation and that she is not in violation of the Hatch Act which prohibits Federal employees from engaging in promoting a candidate. Monika subsequently showed the legal opinion to her supervisor, who promptly said “I don’t care, we will just have to agree to disagree”. Today, Monika faces an annual job review which has been moved up to coincide with these events. Monika stated that she expects to be fired today.

In an interview on this topic which I did on Paul Preston’s Agenda 21 Radio show, he shared that he has outed 12 instances (people) associated with espionage in the State Department and that this ring was established under Clinton’s rule.

Monika’s story is no less volatile. She produces State Department documents and brochures on sensitive topics. Monika has had work rejected for having too many White faces in the brochures. There are brochures, unrelated to topic, which do not permit any White faces to be used.

The Saudi Arabian contract employee is in charge of State Department brochures on Child Sex Trafficking. She does an amazing job, according to Monika, of producing documents about these events on the continent of Africa. However, none of these same type events are covered domestically. Let me remind the readers that Washington, D.C., is right next to Fairfax County, VA, and as such, is the highest child sex trafficking area in the country. The State Department is also a stone’s throw from the alleged location of PizzaGate. How is this topic not covered domestically? As a US citizen, I want this question answered. What is the State Department potentially covering up? How deep does this corruption go? Source:

Even the National Park Service employees are over staffed with turncoats who are more interested in implementing the UN’s Agendia 21 than they are in following Trump’s agenda of pulling back from the Global Warming Hoax which is nothing but a stalking horse to impose Sustainable Development upon the world. Just what does the National Park Service have to do with Global Warming, they are charged with taking care of our parks not deciding when we can live and what kind of energy we can use.

On Tuesday (Jan. 24), a tweet from the Badlands National Park on global warming seemed to defy the new rules put in place. The Trump administration was quick to act.

Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer said that the NPS “had inappropriately violated their own social media policies. There was guidance that was put out to the department to act in compliance with the rules that were set forth.”

The temporary action against NPS social media was similar to other de facto gag orders by the Trump administration against the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture.

In those actions:

• The president banned EPA employees from providing updates on social media or to reporters and barred them from awarding new contracts or grants as well.

• The president instructed USDA employees not to release any public-facing documents including new releases, photos, fact sheets, news feeds, and social media content until further notice.

Although the Badlands NP tweet came down, something else replaced it — the Alt National Park Service.

On its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AltUSNationalParkService/), it says:

“Hello, we wanted to take a moment to let you know who we are. We’re a growing coalition of 59 National Park Service employees from nine different National Parks. We formed to ensure the protection of the environment for future generations to come.

“We were forced into a media blackout, hiring freeze, policy changes, and possible reduction in funding. We are here to stand up and speak out against the current administration. We all refuse to be silenced while we watch everything we love crumble. Join the movement at www.altnps.org -Arches, Glacier, Everglades, Cuyahoga Valley, Rocky Mountain, Shenandoah, Yosemite, Badlands, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.”

The implication is that Rocky Mountain National Park is part of this movement. RMNP officials say that’s not the case.

“Rocky Mountain National Park is not involved nor have we joined the group,” said Patterson. “The only information I have is what I’ve gleaned from the internet or media reports.” Source:

Hydra’s Head stretched deep into the EPA, and they do not care if they are breaking the law, the EPA staff has been instructed to freeze all its grants ― an extensive program that includes funding for research, redevelopment of former industrial sites, air quality monitoring and education, among other things ― and told not to discuss this order with anyone outside the agency, according to a Hill source with knowledge of the situation.

Federal employees are turning to encryption technologies to coordinate their resistance to the Trump administration, looking for ways to protect their conversations from hackers or agency overlords.

A small group of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employees are already “communicating incognito using the app Signal shortly after Trump’s inauguration,” Politico reports. Such apps encrypt communications and make them difficult to monitor or hack.

But is this legal? Probably not, according to one expert.

“It appears that some employees at the EPA may be using encrypted apps on their phones to avoid transparency laws in an effort to conceal their communications from internal and external oversight,” Henry Kerner, an attorney and senior vice president of the public interest law firm Cause of Action, told The Daily Caller News foundation.

The Epa was counting on a Hillary win, banked on it so they could continue with there plans to stifle the use of fossil fuels, and continue their conversion of our energy supply to the much more expensive renewables, wind and solar, and do away with Nuclear Power.  In other words Agenda 21.

After Trump’s Election: ‘EPA Employees Were in Tears’

People who work at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy are having a hard time coping with the election of Donald Trump as president, with many reporting depression and some being advised to take sick leave, according to an article published Friday by Environment and Energy Publishing (E&E).

“U.S. EPA employees were in tears,” the article stated. “Worried Energy Department staffers were offered counseling.

“Some federal employees were so depressed, they took time off,” it stated. “Others might retire early.

“And some employees are in downright panic mode in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory,” the article said.

John O’Grady, union boss for EPA workers, said people are “upset.”

“People are upset,” said O’Grady, who works in an EPA office in Chicago. “Some people took the day off because they were depressed.”

“The president-elect has vowed to repeal some of the rules they’ve toiled on for the last eight years during the Obama administration, including the Clean Power Plan rule to cut power plants’ greenhouse gas emissions,” the article said.

“Trump has even suggested abolishing the agency entirely, although that would be an uphill political climb,” the article said, adding that the man Trump has picked to head the EPA transition, Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, is a “climate change skeptic.”

“If you look at the seven stages of grief, I’m still in denial,” an unnamed career EPA employee said. “I will not look at the news. I will not read the news.”

While Trump is just getting started his opposition is winding up in high gear, both in the streets and in his Departments, to stall, delay, and kill every move he makes, they are being added and abetted by the Democrats Party.

Democrats are insisting the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) career employees could continue their work on global warming under the Trump administration.

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told The Christian Science Monitor (CSM) there’s no going back on global warming regulations, and one Democratic lawmaker has even urged the agency’s more than 15,000 employees to resist.

“This agency when this president came in really came out of the closet on climate,” McCarthy told CSM in an exclusive interview last week that was published Friday. “I have a senior team that’s great and the senior career staff that are here are just extraordinary. They are here because of this mission, and that will continue.”

“Even in the prior administration you had a lot of people in the agency that continued to do work on climate, even though that work was not visible,” McCarthy said. “The work continues in the agency.”

California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer sent a letter to McCarthy and EPA employees urging them not to cave to pressure from Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Trump’s pick to head the agency. Source:

We do live in exciting times.
