I AGREE WITH “DO NOT ADD…” BUT I HAVE TO POINT OUT THE ABUNDANT IDIOCY OF OBAMA WHERE HE SAYS LATER IN THE BODY OF THIS MESSAGE, ” If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – -” DOES HE NOT KNOW SUNNIS AND THE SHIITE HATE EACH OTHER AND KILL EACH OTHER AS QUICKLY AND VIOLENTLY AS THE ATTACK THOSE OF US IN THE WEST?
ALSO, in this post he admits to being “hateful” to everything America is and has done for the world:
“Of course now, I have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside .”
DO NOT ADD A SINGLE WORD, just pass it on.
Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised “Meet The Press”. From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised “Meet the Press” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
General Bill Gann’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.
(TELL THE NFL THIS IS A LAW! THEY ABET LAW BREAKING IF THEY DO NOT ENFORCE THIS LAW!)
Senator Obama replied :
“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides.” “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression…” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”
Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments …….”
When I Become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts.We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.
“Of course now, I have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside . I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America.”
Yes, you read it right.

I know there were Battista Popes, artists and musicians, but thought my branch came from the farm! I guess that was intelligent because as my Dad used to say, when on the farm “there was always food to eat!” His point was that as he grew up in Italy, during the Depression, the people in the cities didn’t always have food to eat!
BATTISTA IS SYNONYMOUS WITH INTELLIGENCE, PURITY AND COURAGE. Whoever bears this name comes from an old and esteemed line of ancestors. Battista’s are known for their wisdom.
My Mother’s maiden name is Marrocco: Of the 3 traits mentioned I can only claim “passion;” however, my mother, uncles and aunts were all courageous in various ways! My grandfather was a great musician and mastered 4 different musical instruments! Creative power? Wow! That’s where all my cousins came from!

Congress makes Stunning Decision on Trump’s Military Trans-Ban
By Constitution.com September 20, 2017
By Tony Perkins from the Family Research Council
When Congress sets records, they aren’t always good ones!
But yesterday, the Senate kept a good streak alive, passing the $700 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the 56th consecutive year. In a Capitol where regular order is rarer than a solar eclipse, the military’s spending bill is one of the few things Congress manages to approve on time. It hasn’t missed since West Side Story was in the theaters, and gas cost 27 cents a gallon.
But if there was ever a year when the streak might have snapped, it was this one. Apart from the hike in spending, liberal senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) threatened to make a stink about the president’s transgender policy. Despite being three of the most favorited tweets Donald Trump has ever posted, this pair was desperate to keep Obama’s dangerous social experiment alive. In comments to the press, they defended the gender confusion that’s been panned by the service chiefs, troops, and American people.
Gillibrand argued that “Our military is strongest when it represents the nation it serves.” In the end, that’s exactly who the president represented — a country who elected him to ignore the distractions of the last eight years and focus on the job at hand. And, as dozens of military leaders pointed out, that job was nearly impossible with Obama’s social engineering dogging their every move. Taxpayers didn’t escape the weight of it either, staring down a $3.7 billion tabfor the next 10 years of transgender surgeries, treatments, and lost deployment time. In a force devastated by two terms of budget cuts, cultural shifts, suicide, sexual assaults, and recruitment woes, no one wanted to fling open the doors to more politically-correct chaos — least of all the men and women in uniform.
Asked point-blank, almost 60 percent of active-duty military held a negative opinion of the decision to allow transgender troops to serve openly. More telling, more than half of that group said the policy change was having a terrible effect on military morale. In other words, it was unpopular, unproductive, and unreasonably expensive. Is it any wonder that one year after Barack Obama changed the policy, Trump changed it back? Like most Americans, he understands that the military’s job is to fight and win wars – not pander to a political agenda that weakens national security.
Fortunately, the majority of GOP leaders arrived at the same conclusion, refusing to give the Gillibrand-Collins amendment a second glance.
That’s in large part to the thousands of you who heeded our call and urged your senators to support the president’s guidance. As a result, the NDAA sailed through the Senate 89-8 — without even debating a return to the demoralizing policy of the last year. Instead they focused on the military’s real priorities: increased pay, missile defense, better equipment, and more troops. And while the bill isn’t entirely out of the woods — the House and Senate still have to agree on the final package in conference — this is a huge step in the right direction.
Our deepest thanks to the White House and all of you, who refused to stop fighting for the people fighting for us.

READ THE ENTIRE BLOG, PLEASE. It will only take a few minutes unless you get stuck on the photos:
These 3 sick puppies know Donald Trump is our president! HOW COME THE HYPOCRITES IN THE MEDIA, cOMMUNIST pARTY, democrats, antifa, bLACK lIVES mATTER AND OTHER GROUPS ON THE LEFT, RINO rEPUBLICANS AND OTHER ASSORTED anti-TRUMPERS ARE STUCK ON STUPID refusing to believe crooked Hillary did not run a good campaign and Trump did, which is why Trump won!
Since winning Trump has been attacked from all sides: Of course that is expected from the democrats, but not expected so unfairly by the media, RINO republicans, Obama holdovers in the government and assorted anti-Trumpers from all angles!
During this turmoil it has been said, “The press is not our enemy!” Let’s examine that:
An enemy attempts to sow dissension, topple the leader the people elected. Webster says, “ENEMY:One seeking to injure, confound or overthrow another.”
The press has not published one positive comment about Trump since he won the election! In fact, every comment is so falsely negative the majority of people that follow politics and the news are now ignoring the media. (Unfortunately too many people in our country avoid paying attention, so are easily lead into idiocy by a lying media.) Instead of a positive article we get a flood of attacks and negativity, mostly all fake news! They also ignore all the good news coming out of the Trump administration.
THERE ARE ALSO THE FAKE NEWS BY OMISSION:
In the face off with Korea it was Trump’s spine that was the WINNER!
A million new jobs in 6 months!
Unemployment down to 4.4%
SoftBank $50B Exxon $20B Hyundai $3.1B Apple $1B Chrysler $1B GM $1B Bayer AG $1B Toyota $600M LG $250M
Killed the TPP
Stock market around 20,200
Over 40 bills passed
Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
Consumer confidence above 125
Strengthening relationships China Japan Russia UK Tough on North Korea Tough on Syria Freed Humanitarian Workers from Egypt
ALL THIS WITH RESISTANCE FROM DEMOCRATS, RINO REPUBLICANS AND ASSORTED OTHERS WISHING TO SEE THE USA COLLAPSE!!!
Meanwhile they ignore real dangers and crimes:
Of course they never mention, that before running for president, Donald Trump was the most appreciated white man in the Black community!
Just heard on Rush: More fake news, Mattis getting all the credit for making “Little Fat Un” back down on sending missiles towards Guam! Sure, I love Mad Dog Mattis but in this case it was Trump’s words that created the WIN!
There is so much more fake news attacks on Trump, decent people look at the MEDIA AS A REAL ENEMY, trying to tear down our elections and our nation!!!
President Trump was correct when he said “…evil on all sides…” which is noted if you take the time to study the videos of the Battle at Charlottesville; if you recognize the police (more evil) let the two groups get face to face, then stood down as the baseball bat armed alt-left, BLM, communists and other leftist people attacked the people with the permit; only one group had a permit to demonstrate, some were racists, but most are people concerned with protecting an historical perspective; if you wonder why any politician wants to destroy the history and the heritage of America, like me, you might consider that evil. It appears to me that politicians deciding to hide history and destroy a segment of our heritage, is the reason for the trouble in the first place! True, the Klan, Skin Heads, Nazi’s fought back, but if the ‘antagonistic left’ stayed away, no one would have been injured or killed. Ask yourself, “What would happen if politicians decided to remove memorials to Martin Luther King?” Let me be a prophet and tell you that every city in America would have riots, fires and looting!
Research has been done looking for presidential comments when left and right groups clashed over the last 60 years. There have been 2 or 3 a year or more and Trump is the first president to even comment, blaming “…all sides…” since the average politician is a coward and will not address matters of importance! (Do not cite Obama’s anti-police speeches, always without the facts!) Speaking of 50 to 60 years ago, WHEN AMERICA WAS GREAT, what was the state of America:
*the GDP grew by 250%
*average incomes tripled
*the housing market was booming
*developers were building 1.5 million homes per year
*Home ownership rates exploded
*60% of Americans were in the middle class category
*Poverty rates were dropping fast
*Consumer spending doubled in the 1950s
*Divorce rates were low, while marriage rates were high and people married at a younger age than at any other time in history
*Only 4% of all babies were born out-of-wedlock, compared to 40% today
*90% of all children grew up with married parents
*there was no crack epidemic
*there were hardly any school shootings
*90% of all school levies were approved by voters
*discipline problems in school minor
*the US had the best educational system in the world at the time
*cost of living was low
*families were able to live comfortably on only one income
*Americans viewed the home and the family to be most important thing in society
*No secular humanist movement opposed the 1954 addition of “under God” to the Pledge of Alligence
*The birth rate was extremely high, women were having almost 4 children on average
If you want to contribute to the destruction of America, continue supporting the demon-rat democrats and RINO repugnant republicans in “The Resistance” to making America great again! Participate with the socialists and communistic democrats!
If you love our country get on the Trump train and lend your strength to “The Make America Great Again” movement!

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President someday. Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, were standing there so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?”
She replied.. “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people.” Her parents beamed with pride!
“Wow…what a worthy goal!” I said . . . “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!”
“What do you mean?” she replied
So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.”
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?”
I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”
Her parents aren’t speaking to me anymore.
I pray it doesn’t happen, but the violent left and their propagandists in the media are working overtime to force a revolution! ARE YOU PREPARED? Like most, you are probably not!

Two articles explain why Canada could turn into another Venezuela!
Hey, Trudeau, your “most expensive (HEALTH CARE) system in the world cannot meet the public’s needs.”
“Canada’s healthcare, to paraphrase Hillary, ‘leaves no citizen behind,’ but THIS MOST EXPENSIVE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD CANNOT MEET THE PUBLIC’S NEEDS. Although Canada’s Universal healthcare is excellent once the person is in the system, the key words are “in the system,” and it’s not always “universal,” with wealthier provinces better funded than others. It is true that their efficiency channels the funds more to care than to administration, but patients are assessed in terms of “outcome” and what is acceptable to the voters. This is reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s warning of death panels, where the medical boards evaluate the person’s age and quality of life before deigning to provide costly medication and therapy.”
They Paved Canada and Put Up a Parking Lot! AND OTHER PROBLEMS WITH SOCIALIST CANADA!!
The cover of the August 2017 issue of Rolling Stone magazine displays the image of Justin Trudeau, and the first headline, “Justin Trudeau, Why Can’t He Be Our President?”
Aside from his not being an American, the American people have finally elected to withdraw from their detrimental socialism and return to our Constitutional Republic. Unfortunately, Canadians have reversed their course toward a more intense socialism.
Trudeau promised real change, the same vague promise made by then-candidate President Obama in 2008. To reflect his multiculturalism, Trudeau chose a cabinet of thirty, based not on competence, but on gender, ethnicity, and disabilities, yet there appears to be not one observant Jew among them to handle the antisemitism in schools and media and to represent the one percent Jewish population most victimized by hate crimes in an increasingly dangerous Canada. He pledged to legalize recreational marijuana, and to change the electoral system, except that he finds this to be unnecessary now that the very process got him elected.
A globalist, Trudeau promised to welcome 25,000 more Syrian refugees in 2016, without vetting facilities, compared to the 10,000 accepted by the Conservatives. Interestingly, immediately following the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, he accepted 33,200 refugees, a number that soon became 46,700, representing the same belief system and increasing violence to that one percent and more. I am reminded of the song, “They paved Paradise and put up a parking lot.”
Canadian-born, then-15-year-old Omar Khadr, had been taken by his father to join Al Qaeda. Captured at 16, he pled guilty to planting ten landmines and murdering an American soldier by throwing a grenade at Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer, in a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan. US Sgt. Layne Morris was also severely wounded by the explosion and blinded in one eye. Convicted, and after serving eight of his 40-year-sentence in Guantanamo, the 24-year-old Khadr was released to Canada where he would spend the remainder of his sentence.
Despite his being dropped into a war zone by his own father, however, he sued the Canadian government for breaching his rights (as a minor) under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and received $10.5 million and an apology from the Canadian government. Years before, Omar’s father had been arrested and imprisoned for being an Al Qaeda financier in the jihad bombing of the Egyptian embassy in Pakistan, and his mother wanted to raise her six children outside of Canada, away from Western social influences. This is just one of many unvetted families who have emigrated to the west. Trudeau has indeed brought change. Instead of this family’s paying for their crimes, they are receiving payment for their crimes. Inviting and rewarding terrorism has resulted in increased crime against Canada’s Jewish citizens and will ultimately affect all infidels. (ME THINKS A WALL IS NECESSARY AT THE CANADIAN BORDER.)
Honor killings are on the rise in Canada, sanctioned by sharia, blamed on the challenging process of integration but never experienced with previous immigrants. They include a 16-year-old daughter of Pakistanis who was killed for wanting to wear western clothes and get a part-time job, like her peers; a 19-year-old daughter whose crime was to stay out all night; a first-wife and three daughters found drowned in their vehicle in a canal, and 13 other such cases under investigation.
The results of Trudeau’s tenure in office thus far range from disappointing to disconcerting. Unable to cap Canada’s budget deficit at $30 billion over three years as expected, after a year in office, Trudeau blames the previous administration for weak economic growth. Considering Trump’s roaring economic growth within his first six months, Trudeau’s excuse is feeble. And, rather than keep his promise to help to defeat ISIS, he has promised humanitarian support for Iraqis and Syrians.
Rolling Stone magazine also bore the headline, “How the Trump administration is destroying the EPA.” The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an agency of the U.S. federal government, which was created to protect human health and the environment by enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. Created in 1970, this bureaucracy had burgeoned, by 2016, to 15,376 full-time employees, with a budget of $8.1 billion. The Trump administration proposed a 31% budget cut to $5.7 billion and to eliminate a fourth of the agency jobs. This is improvement, not destruction.
The EPA’s increased jurisdiction has encroached on private property, making it more difficult for farmers, ranchers, those in agriculture and homebuilding to meet stringent water supply regulations. The US Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business, The American Farm Bureau Federation and others filed a lawsuit to stop the EPA, which uses the pressure of social media for covert propaganda for their own purposes, violating laws and increasing prices of produce. Farmers depend on a fair regulatory system that protects the environment and does not force them to raise strangling prices on consumers.
As Mark Levin explained, “The EPA is destroying the middle class; it’s destroying working people in this country; it’s destroying coal miners; it’s destroying oil jobs; it’s destroying trucking jobs. The EPA is destroying our smokestack industries. The EPA is doing more damage to our economy and hardworking men and women in this country than any country in the world. The environmental movement is a communist movement.”
Complying with EPA regulations costs the U.S. economy $353 billion per year — more than 30 times its budget, more than Denmark’s entire national GDP in 2011. The annual cost of the global warming industry is, conservatively, $1.5 trillion, enough to reduce our taxes and national debt – for the “possibility” of reducing our temperature by 0.048°C (0.086°F) by the end of the century, the same temperature reduction one experiences traveling down an elevator.
By shrinking its budget to two-thirds, its workforce to one-fifth, and limiting its regulatory powers, Trump is redefining and narrowing the EPA’s focus to its original purpose of 1970, to improve our water and air while also cultivating job growth. Superfund sites (land previously used for chemical dumps) will fall under the purview of the states, rather than further drain the federal budget.
MORE ON HEALTH CARE:
Brian Lindenberg | April 16, 2012
In my last article for BenefitsCanada.com, I compared and contrasted the state of healthcare in this country at the time that the basic principles for the Canada Health Act were conceived (in 1961) and today.
As the federal government is about to undertake a review of this legislation, it’s important that all Canadians formulate a point of view on the future of our healthcare system. Employers in particular have a vested interest in the outcome of these deliberations, given the interrelationship between the public system and employee benefits programs.
First, an important acknowledgement: the healthcare debate is charged with emotion. Canadians from all walks of life have different experiences with our healthcare system, and these form our opinions. My own experiences with our system have been generally favourable—others I know have had completely difference experiences. Additionally, there are those Canadians who are also health professionals working within the system who are constantly asked to do more with less. The perspectives of the multiple stakeholders are of equal importance in the deliberations of the future of healthcare in this country. Weighing each perspective is the next-to-impossible task put before the government as it develops a template for Canada’s healthcare system that will last another 50 years.
So with this very important caveat, let’s consider THREE THINGS WORKING WELL IN OUR CURRENT system and SIX THINGS THAT DO NOT!
What works well
No Canadian is left behind – Unlike in the U.S., no citizen of this country is denied access to healthcare based on whether or not he or she can afford to pay. This is a point of pride for many Canadians and clearly distinguishes us from our neighbours to the south. Universal healthcare defines us as Canadians.
Excellent standard of care – Once you are in the system, the standard of care is excellent. For example, health outcomes in the areas of cardiovascular disease and many forms of cancer are far better than in the U.S., which suggests that we are doing many things right. Of course, the operative words here are “once you are in the system.” Clearly, reasonable access to care is an issue that this country must address. (??? HOW COME I MET SO MANY CANADIANS WHEN MY WIFE AND I SPENT SIX WEEKS, FOLLOWED BY MANY VISITS, TO MAYO CLINIC???)
Funds go to healthcare, not administration – For the most part, our Canadian system efficiently allocates funds between healthcare provision and healthcare administration. For every dollar spent on healthcare funding, far less gets spent on administration than in countries such as the U.S. Our system is FAR FROM PERFECT, but in relative terms, it is not bad.
What does not work well
Our healthcare system is costly – Canada has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world. We can look to many OTHER COUNTRIES to see SUPERIOR HEALTH FOR LESS MONEY. Our single-payer model works in theory, but, in practical terms, it has not delivered the results that one would have necessarily expected with respect to value for money.
Healthcare decision-making is political – Healthcare decisions are often made based on “political palatability” or what’s acceptable to the voting public versus what makes sense from a financial sustainability perspective or in terms of health outcomes. The decision-making process is complicated and often slow, and results in small incremental change rather than fundamental change. We are likely at a point in time where we need to ask the tough questions—but the politics of decision-making will get in the way and we may not get to where we need to be.
ACCESS to care is A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM – Restrictions on government funding has limited access to care—wait-lists are routine, and Canadians are increasingly having difficulties accessing the services of family physicians. The system has not kept up with the demands and expectations of the patient.
The healthcare system is NOT VERY NIMBLE – Our healthcare system is huge and, therefore, not very nimble. Although many provinces are trying to change this, our system remains focused on acute and chronic care—addressing the problem once it becomes a problem. Most experts agree that the focus should shift to prevention and health promotion. This is a monumental shift that is going to take time. The system has also not kept up with the changing face of illness and treatment. For example, physical health remains the primary focus of the system while mental illness represents a significant cost to the Canadian economy and society. Drug therapy is used extensively in the treatment of injury and disease, yet these costs fall largely outside of the public system.
NOT ALL CANADIANS ARE TREATED THE SAME – We have a UNIVERSAL healthcare system and yet—in some respects—this is also A MISREPRESENTATION. HEALTH CARE across the country is far from consistent with access to care defined, in part, by your province of residence. And this gap will only get larger as resource-rich provinces such are Alberta and Saskatchewan are able to invest more on a per capita basis than the other provinces. Health transfer payments are supposed to compensate for these funding imbalances; however, the fact of the matter remains—our healthcare system is far from universal.
So where to from here? Many of the basic principles embedded in the Canada Health Act still work. However, this important piece of legislation needs to be modernized to reflect the realities of today.(MAYBE IT NEEDS TO BE REPEALED AND REPLACED). The principles of public administration and the guidelines for what is “medically necessary” in particular need to be reviewed to ensure that whether what was anticipated in 1961 still works today. And we need to ask the hard questions—the questions no politician wants to ask—to ensure that we establish the most appropriate path for our future.
We can probably all agree on the objective—to develop a framework for a cost-effective, efficient healthcare system that responds to the medical needs of all Canadians. How we get there is subject to debate. But we do need to get there, and the debate needs to start now.
Brian Lindenberg is a senior partner and the health and benefits leader at Mercer Canada. He has more than 30 years of experience in the employee benefits field.
These are the views of the author and not necessarily those of Benefits Canada.
White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci repeated that he and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus were like brothers, but warned that it was still unclear whether or not they would get along in the White House.
“Some brothers are like Cain and Abel, other brothers can fight with each other and get along, I don’t know if this is repairable or not,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s New Day on Thursday morning.
Scaramucci explained comments he made on Twitter on Wednesday night, after citing Priebus in a tweet about leakers. After Politico reported on Scaramucci’s public disclosure form, he suggested that it was leaked to the media by someone in the White House.
He later deleted the tweet.
Scaramucci said that he included Priebus in the note he posted on Twitter because he was in charge of White House staff. Scaramucci’s accusations surrounded a public document, but he he made it clear that he suspected that someone in the White House notified Politico immediately.
“What the president and I would like to tell everybody, we have a very, very good idea of who the leakers are, who the senior leakers are in the White House,” Scaramucci said.
He also assured CNN that journalists who covered the White House were used to getting leaks from Priebus, which is why they suspected that he was referring to him in the tweet.
“Underconfidence plus insecurity always equals paranoia and backstabbing,” he said, vowing to find out the source.
Scaramucci refrained from naming Reince Priebus specifically, but did not defend the chief of staff.
“If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that,” he said. “But let me tell you something about myself, I am a straight shooter. I’ll go right to the heart of the matter.”
He also expressed frustration that his dinner with Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, leaked to the media minutes after it began.
“It’s absolutely completely and totally reprehensible,” he said. “As you know from the Italian expression, the fish stinks from the head down, I can tell you two fish that don’t stink, that’s me and the president.”
IF I MAY: DO YOU REALLY THINK JEFF SESSIONS AND PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE NOT STRATEGIZING ON THE PHONE EACH DAY?
President Trump will fire a “screw-up” in a minute-especially one that is disloyal! Jeff Sessions is not either one! So, while the real “screw-ups” and ignorant people are dwelling on the distracting Tweets, Jeff Sessions is putting into action all of the programs President Trump wants fixed now!
Yes, we would love to see the “swamp rats” at the DOJ dumped quicker, but AG Sessions is getting the goods on them first, so they can’t come back and haunt the administration as it appears Comey did! (Or did he?) Draining a swamp is a big, complicated job! You can’t just stick in a siphon hose, give a little suck and let the fluid flow! After all, the swamp is populated by big, big rats, alligators and a host of other dangerous critters that would love to kill those upsetting their little piece of heavenly turf! At least heavenly to them, although a tremendous burden on the tax payer!
I hope I’m not blowing the cover of AG Sessions and President Trump, but I think it is finally becoming clear to any open-minded observer what is going on!
Jeff Sessions is taking over an agency staffed by hundreds of embedded Obama/Clinton operatives who will subvert our nation to stop the Trump administration. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “On every public policy issue conservatives care about, the Justice Department has been on the other side and usually against the rule of law … so Attorney General Sessions really has to reorient the Justice Department to actually advance the interest of the American people…”
Jeff Sessions is doing his duty against criminal gangs, terrorists, drug cartels, illegal immigrants and the usual litigation’s of the government. His effectiveness against gangs like MS-13 and upholding the immigration laws and supporting the presidents Constitutional right to put a temporary hold on refugees is outstanding!
If President Trump was that angry about Sessions’ recusal he would have fired him weeks ago! Stay awake and watch the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, where President Trump has the democrats, their propaganda press and all the anti-Trump swamp looking like fools!
“FBI Probe Into Clinton Emails Prompted Offer of Cash, Citizenship for Confession, Russian Hacker Claims,” by Tom O’Connor, Newsweek, May 11, 2017:
“A Russian citizen accused of being a hacker by both Russia and the U.S. has claimed U.S. officials offered to cut him a deal if he admitted to interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
“Yevgeniy Nikulin, 29, has found himself in the middle of an international dispute between Washington and Moscow, at the very center of which lies U.S. allegations that Russia sponsored a series of hacks targeting Democratic Party candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in favor of Republican candidate and current President Donald Trump. On October 5, 2016, days before U.S. intelligence publicly accused Russia of endorsing an infiltration of Democratic Party officials’ emails, Nikulin was arrested in Prague at the request of the U.S. on separate hacking charges. Now, Nikulin claims U.S. authorities tried to pin the email scandal on him.”

The decent agents need to step up and tell what they know, and if their knowledge doesn’t quite bring the criminals to justice, a little investigating will do it! After all, they don’t have to travel! The criminals are working in the same buildings, with offices next door to the decent agent! IF we find out the entire FBI is corrupt, we are in for a MAJOR BATTLE! I can’t believe they are all swamp scum!
Regardless, you DEEP STATE Reptiles better realize we will not let you take down our CONSTITUTIONALLY ELECTED president! Like you, we are well armed, and the majority of active duty and reservists are on the side of President Trump and his followers. We old veterans stand with our younger brothers and sisters in arms. We might not be able to move like we used to, but we are capable of doing a lot of damage if you do not reconsider your stupid seditious actions!
IT IS TIME FOR THE HONEST PEOPLE AT THE FBI, CIA AND OTHER AGENCIES TO STEP FORWARD AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP!
HERE IS THE FULL ARTICLE:
FBI says Democrat Party Operatives oFFer Bribe to Russian Hacker to say He Hacked DNC for Trump!
While the criminal witch hunt against our President continues apace over the nonexistent collusion between Trump with Russia, here’s a blockbuster front page news story virtually ignored by the elite media. The FBI offered a Russian hacker cash and citizenship if he would confess to hacking Hillary Clinton’s email for Trump. There was just one problem: he hadn’t.
These rogue Obama plants within the FBI and other agencies, who are even trying to fabricate evidence to frame Trump, must be removed and prosecuted, or they could be the death of the American republic.
“FBI Probe Into Clinton Emails Prompted Offer of Cash, Citizenship for Confession, Russian Hacker Claims,” by Tom O’Connor, Newsweek, May 11, 2017:
A Russian citizen accused of being a hacker by both Russia and the U.S. has claimed U.S. officials offered to cut him a deal if he admitted to interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
Yevgeniy Nikulin, 29, has found himself in the middle of an international dispute between Washington and Moscow, at the very center of which lies U.S. allegations that Russia sponsored a series of hacks targeting Democratic Party candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in favor of Republican candidate and current President Donald Trump. On October 5, 2016, days before U.S. intelligence publicly accused Russia of endorsing an infiltration of Democratic Party officials’ emails, Nikulin was arrested in Prague at the request of the U.S. on separate hacking charges. Now, Nikulin claims U.S. authorities tried to pin the email scandal on him.
Nikulin was detained in the Czech Republic for allegedly hacking the servers of major sites LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring between 2012 and 2013. While awaiting trial, he claims in an undated letter reportedly given to U.S. Russian-language news site Nastoyashchoe Vremya by Nikulin’s lawyer, Martin Sadilek, that the FBI visited him at least a couple of times, offering to drop the charges and grant him U.S. citizenship as well as cash and an apartment in the U.S. if the Russian national confessed to participating in the 2016 hacks of Clinton campaign chief John Podesta’s emails in July.
Trump initially dismissed allegations of Russian involvement in the election, but has since reversed his position, while denying any personal connection to the hacks. Moscow has vehemently denied interfering in the 2016 election.
“[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [U.S. President Donald Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Nikulin wrote, according to The Moscow Times.
Nikulin said he refused the deal, but U.S. officials threatened to return. He claims the visits occurred in mid-November 2016 and on February 7 of this year. Czech television has reported at least one FBI visit earlier this year, according to The Guardian, which cited an FBI spokesperson as saying the agency was “aware of the situation,” but declining further comment. The FBI is seeking to extradite Nikulin to face trial in the U.S., something he and his lawyers are trying to fight.
While the U.S. has not publicly acknowledged any connection between Nikulin and the Russian election hacking controversy, Nikulin’s arrest did attract the attention of Moscow. Nikulin is accused by Russia of hacking into and stealing from online WebMoney accounts. The Moscow-based online money transfer system claims 31 million users around the world and Nikulin is charged with stealing $3,450 in 2009, according to the state-owned Tass Russian News Agency. Moscow has also filed an extradition request.
Nikulin, a self-described used car salesman who claims he does not work with computers, denies the charges raised against him by both the U.S. and Moscow. His Czech lawyer, Adam Kopecky, said in January he and Nikulin believed the Russian national was being used as a “political pawn” amid an international feud between Washington and Moscow, according to The Guardian….

“THE OLDER I GET THE BETTER I WUZ!” SO WE HAVE KIDS TO TAKE UP THE SLACK!

THE VISION: I believe this new technological age is the leveling field, for all people, if they are able to grasp a minimal use of the Internet! Every one should be entitled to enough money for all needs and many of our wants! Regardless of race, economic status or any other condition we can name, each of us should be able to have a decent life! If we can start with the homeless and most disadvantaged minorities, teach them how to find a product, then follow simple instructions to market that product on the World Wide Web, in time, everyone could be earning an adequate living.
THE DIFFICULTY: 1) FINANCIAL: The disadvantaged do not even have the money to start. Even starting with two disadvantaged people would require the cost of two lap tops, ($350.00= $700); auto-responder, ($25/month, needing 3 to 6 months to generate income= $75 to $150); miscellaneous advertising and other costs, ($100/month for 3 t0 6 months= $300 to $600), or start up costs of up to $1450! 2) MOTIVATION: Can I keep two destitute individuals motivated for Three to six month until they can actually see the beginnings of a cash-flow? 3) Once those two are earning a living, will they be willing to Pay It Forward, so we can now train 4 destitute people? 4) Can this be sustainable to where we have thousands of people training those in need?
THE SOLUTION: 1) A backer to fund the first two people; 2) A three month motivational program to coincide with the Internet Sales Program; 3) an income generating component that would give incentive to each trained person to continue helping others!
On April 23, 2007, I interviewed a Vietnam veteran named Al.
The following specifics came out after the introductions were finished-
Q. Have you ever been homeless?
A. No, but close a few times.
Q. What do you attribute your lack of wealth too?
A. I was involved in a lot of combat with Charley Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, ending in my being wounded in my 11th month tin Vietnam by a land mine explosion.
I’ve been told that I have severe PTSD!
Q. PTSD seems to hold a lot of veterans back. Do you see that among your peers?
A. Yes! Many of us get stuck in alcohol and or drugs. It is hard to stay productive when you are carrying that extra weight on your back!
Q. When did you realize you had PTSD?
A. I always thought I was fine. It had to be the other people around me that were screwed up! (Laughs.) I thought I was being productive until I was 36 years old. At that time my brother was shot by a robber when he worked as a manager of a Wendy’s Hamburger. Sitting in the waiting room of the Intensive Care section of the hospital I had a series of emotional collapses, flashbacks to Vietnam and other episodes of a psychotic nature. A few years later I was diagnosed with PTSD. I was unable to get myself going after my brothers injury. Somewhere in my brain I was blaming myself for his injury, just as I blamed myself for the mine explosion in Vietnam.
I have a college degree, and I’m not dumb, but when the brain creates a road-block it is very difficult to overcome. It can be done, I’m sure, but it is difficult for me at least.
Q. That brings me to the next subject I’d like to ask you about. I’m looking for a volunteer to test ways to make money on the internet. Would you be interested in do such a project?
Our objective is to put together a simple program that could helps minorities, veterans and any other category of people that are having a problem getting their lives together. We firmly believe once a person can start to see that making money is not impossible, I believe they will be motivated to become successful and desire to help others get on the road to success! To do this with us you will need to commit for at least 90 days, while we work the bugs out, and hope you will stay with us for at least 6 months so you can help a few others get on the road to success!
A. Yes, sure! It might help me get over the hump, especially if you can steer me in the right direction!
THE PLAN: I would like to start with a homeless veteran and test him. Veterans would have some degree of discipline left, even if homeless. They were also smart enough to do the job in the military. If it can work for one, it can work for millions. Once the test is successful (might need to try several prospects) using my lap top computer, we can seek out donors to fund the next two, as well as help complete the first test subjects success story in this project.
1-Find two test subject. Interview them after the test with the veteran proves successful.
2-Links for a) Motivation; b) Free programs for a track to run on; c) Links to free advertising
4-Find investor or use “crowd sharing” for necessary funds
Find two (2) veterans, economically deprived minorities or some other category of people needing a boost in life! Are they willing invest a few hours per week to improve their lives over a three (3) to six (6) month period?
6-Put the program into effect
