Time to End All Obama Social Engineering Experiments!

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.

Love is Fair and Accurate! The Media is Unfair and Inaccurate!

Hi, I thought you might enjoy reading this article I just came across: “Not Just the Alt-Right: Leftist Violence was on Display in Charlottesville”;

This is the link: http:/constitution.com/not-just-alt-right-leftist-violence-display-charlottesville/

There was too much to say in this blog.  To see the article you will have to click the link!

Sent from Mail for Windows 10

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%

Corprate Reinvestment:

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

Diplomacy

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

Let’s end with some factual humor: $50.00

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.

Protect Your Family! Obama Operation Denies Citizens Access to Guns & Gold!

Act Fast before you are Denied Access to Guns & Gold

 

The Wall Street Journal reported on “Operation Choke Point!”  Since no company can survive in today’s world without the ability to make banking transactions, Operation Choke Point’s clear objective is to destroy industries disliked by Barry Obama.

As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “it’s a thinly veiled ideological attack on industries the Obama administration doesn’t like.” Gun sellers, precious metals companies, and coal producers will be forced out of business.  A huge public outcry, caused the FDIC to issue a slight retraction to the policy. Recently it appears  that the government and banksters continue targeting industries that Obama hates.

These  industries are legal, and have not been charged with any crime. This is all done without any due process! The Obama administration is going crazy and is out of control!

We know why Obama would want to shut down guns. “A well regulated militia, although necessary to the security of a free state,” threatens a tyrant.

 

Why gold? Governments across the globe are turning to confiscation of private wealth for power and to manage their massive debts. Police seize cash from innocent citizens without ever charging them with a crime. Banksters collude with the IRS to screw innocent citizens with no notification, no court order, and no charge of crimes.

Worse yet, the IMF wants global wealth confiscation to fund bankrupt governments! A willing Congress passes new laws to make your savings and retirement available to the money grabbers in government.

So desperate governments have access to your personal savings anywhere in the world. Gold and silver are the ONE asset outside the financial system and is completely secure from government confiscation and global economic collapse. So when you keep some of your savings in small, spendable amounts of gold you keep it out of grubby hands.

The Time to Act is Now: Go to Get your gold in spendable grams!

Precious metals have been the best wealth protectors for millennium. It has survived currency collapses throughout history. Obama now threatens your financial security when you most need it! Governments and  banks are on the edge of total collapse. Act now. Protect yourselves before there is nothing left to protect.

Watch the two videos at Protection with small increments of spendable gold!

A lawless Government Creates a Lawless Country!

Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

Modal Trigger Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

The Obama administration will tell any lie and break any law to prevent the president’s signature health-care program from collapsing.

Insurance companies such as UnitedHealthcare and Aetna are losing billions trying to sell ObamaCare plans, and the risk is they’ll drop out at the end of 2016. No insurance companies means no ObamaCare.

In 2014, the White House tried to avert that disaster by promising insurers a taxpayer-funded bailout, but public outrage and quick action by Sen. Marco Rubio put a stop to it. Now the administration is at it again.

Desperate to keep insurers on board, the administration scrambled to find another pot of money. Unfortunately, once again, a big part of that money pot belongs to the public.

President Obama doesn’t seem to care. On Feb. 12, the administration announced that the money will be handed out to insurers — a whopping $7.7 billion this year alone.
But it’s not just expensive: That huge handout to the insurance industry is also illegal.

This is money you and everyone else who already has insurance are forced to pay, called a reinsurance fee. You pay the fee whether you buy your own plan or get covered at work, even if your employer self-insures. You may be clueless about it, but the fee is buried in your premium or taken out of your compensation.

The text of the Affordable Care Act is clear as a bell on what this money can be used for.

Some of these annual fees — adding up to billions a year — belong to the public, not the insurance companies. The law states a fixed share “shall be deposited into the general fund of the Treasury of the United States and may not be used” to offset insurance companies’ losses.

But the administration gave all of it to the insurance companies last year, and got away with that heist. So now they’re trying it again.

Anyone in the corporate world who misused funds that way would be headed to prison. This rogue administration is going to any length — including running afoul of the law — to keep insurers hooked into ObamaCare.

In the words of University of Houston law professor Seth Chandler, who tried to call attention to the crime several months ago, this is “an illegal diversion of funds . . . to enrich insurers.” Last year alone, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas got $549 million of these reinsurance funds, while Anthem Blue Cross of California got $401 million.

How did this fly under the radar last year? Because no one — especially members of Congress — has read the law. Insurance companies weren’t about to object to getting more money than the law allows.

Plus, the announcements of these payments were buried in mind-numbing federal agency releases. The latest such disclosure came late last Friday — heading into a holiday weekend.

This week, a few health scholars took notice, including Galen Institute senior fellow Doug Badger. He says the illegal maneuver is “designed to keep a sinking ship from hitting rock bottom.”

ObamaCare was sold on lies: You can keep your health plan if you like it. And keep your doctor if you like your doctor. Then, once it was passed, the administration resorted to a long string of lawless executive actions to keep an unworkable scheme going, despite the damage being done to employers, doctors and consumers.

The administration’s diversion of public funds to its insurance-company cronies is just the latest defiance of the law.

The president has illegally delayed the employer mandate repeatedly. He’s handing out free ObamaCare plans to illegal immigrants. Statutory deadlines are routinely ignored, and funds are slyly shifted from one program to another — the law be damned.

Ultimately, ObamaCare is imperiling not only our health and our nation’s economic growth, but even our nation’s most precious asset — the rule of law.

 AND WORSE, (If anything could be worse)!

Today at 1:47 PM

Awful, just awful… what a lawless administration.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/431676/obama-administration-enabling-noncitizen-voting

Several well-funded organizations — including the League of Women Voters and the NAACP — are fighting efforts to prevent non-citizens from voting illegally in the upcoming presidential election. And the United States Department of Justice, under the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is helping them.

On February 12, these groups filed a lawsuit in D.C. federal court seeking to reverse a recent decision by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The Commission’s decision allows Kansas and other states, including Arizona and Georgia, to enforce state laws ensuring that only citizens register to vote when they use a federally designed registration form. An initial hearing in the case is set for Monday afternoon, February 22.

A NOTE ABOUT THE APPLE I-PHONE CONTROVERSY:

To see this in perspective, we have to go back to the Snowdon Controversy!  Did Snowdon commit a crime? Yes!  Was his crime a public service? Yes!

If you don’t believe we are living under a lawless government, after reading this far, then you are asleep and I hope you wake up in time!  The wimps in the media (propaganda machine) keep you thinking that the Apple Controversy is about one phone!  IT IS NOT!  As Snowdon proved, we do not have any privacy from “Big Brother”  except for this latest model of I-phone by Apple.

We need to ask, “Why didn’t the FBI take this phone to Apple before they caused it to lock-up?” Seventy times in the past, the FBI prevailed upon Apple to help them with phones that had not reached the “locked-up” stage.  Apple always cooperated.  I’m not very tech savvy, but listening to those that are, I found out that for Apple to get into this phone at this stage would open up the flood gate for the destruction of the last vestige of privacy left in the tech world.

If privacy is so important for the ability to murder a baby in the womb, then maybe “We the People” should be allowed this one little area of privacy.

 Let’s face it, Apple is the one system that hackers from China, Russia, North Korea, Isis and other enemies of privacy have not been able to penetrate!  As Snowdon proved, NOTHING IS PRIVATE ANYMORE, except this one tiny area!

Will Apple win? Probably not, because the “sheeple” believe what they are told by the media!  Apple will cave and the NSA will now be able to spy on this tiny island of privacy left to “We the People.”

What’s Killing White People?

What’s Killing White People?  The answer is easy, Liberalism!  First read the excerpt from the article in

The NY Times:

Health

Death Rates Rising for Middle-Aged White Americans, Study Finds

https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-2/js/ext.js

“That finding was reported Monday by two Princeton economists, Angus Deaton, who last month won the 2015 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, and Anne Case. Analyzing health and mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from other sources, they concluded that rising annual death rates among this group are being driven not by the big killers like heart disease and diabetes but by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse: alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.”
Why blame the Liberals?  Liberalism/Progressivism or what ever you wish to call it gave us promiscuous sex, drugs and lack of morality called Rock ‘N Roll! As a former idiotic liberal I assure you I rue the day so many of us embraced that philosophy and life-style.
Without the moral underpinnings divorce and dissolution of the family unit runs rampant.  In the “devil may care” environment of the Rock ‘N Roll environment we stopped caring for our bodies and decided it was easier to escape in a hazy drug cloud instead of building our families economic future.  Woman’s Lib turned men into wimps even if mistreating the wife was never part of his character!
Whether the drug of choice is alcohol, heroin or opioids it leads to the same dead end, suicide!  There are many forms of suicide such as the “Installment plan with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.”
Alcoholic liver disease takes longer, and you can play the game as if you are living, but you are just as dead as you would be shooting a gun into your head!
Another area of discouragement for the white person, as pointed out by this article, is economics.  Liberalism provides the environment for “crony capitalism.”  Only with a big, liberal government can the lobbyists of the major companies convince the politician to screw the little guy so he can make more money.  The cry of the liberal democrat is “Take the money out of politics!”  We can question “Why?”  Is it so the liberal politician can have more money for graft?
These problems are fixable!  This article isn’t intended to lay out all of the solutions, just heed it as a wake-up call!  While some of you might call the solutions “Polly-anna-ish” or too spiritual, they work.  We hope to lay out some of these ideas in a new blog, with high lights mentioned here in Amateur vs Competent.  We’ll keep you informed.


Trump’s Specifics! You’ve asked, Here it is!

Donald Trump — Things You Might Not Know About Him
~an interesting read~
As candidates for president emerge it is important to know where each stands on issues that are important to AMERICA. The USA cannot afford to make another mistake in electing someone with a poor track record of public service, or someone who values illegal invaders more than hard-working, loyal Americans and her military.
Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up.  The criticisms of Trump are amazingly​ missing something. They are​ lacking in ​negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity​ than people may think​.
And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.​
But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trump’s positions and plans:
1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2.) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):
·         American interests come first.  Always. No apologies.
·         Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
·         Only go to war to win.
·         Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
·         Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
·         See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they materialize.
·         Respect and support our present and past warriors.
4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.
5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here.  Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing.  For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.
6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.
8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy.  He wants to make America the place to do business.  He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:
·         Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
·         From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
·         From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
·         $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%
9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue.  He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.
11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security.  He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits.  Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.
18.) Trump supports the death penalty.
19.) Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!).  He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense.  It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.  On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true.  He’s never filed personal bankruptcy.  He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time.  But he’s never been bankrupt personally.
He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.  Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.”   We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans.  Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.  Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due. Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer.

The Greatest Thinkers Knew Gold Is Real, Paper isn’t worth the paper it is printed on!

Thomas Jefferson (portrait by Rembrandt Peale)

What if the gold standard is not an antique but, rather, a “timeless classic” (as termed in a speech by Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann in September 2012)?  High tech guru George Gilder deploys cutting-edge science to show why this is so, based on Shannon information theory. Gilder’s analysis is neither eccentric nor anomalous.

The intellectual pedigree of the classical gold standard runs through two of the greatest scientists in history: Copernicus and Newton. Nicolas Copernicus, in his Essay on the Minting of Money eloquently lays out the scientific foundations of the classical gold standard. (Full disclosure, I served as co-editor of a modern translation, by classicist Gerald Malsbary, published by Laissez Faire Books and recently republished by Cognella as part of a splendid compilation of source documents in classical economics in The Monetary Foundations of the Macroeconomy Volume 1 edited by Thomas Rustici, James Caton, Dima Shamoun, and Ted Shamoun).

Sir Isaac Newton, as Master of the Royal Mint of Great Britain, created what became the modern classical gold standard. This was a fact well known by President Jefferson, as astutely noted by Dr. Judy Shelton in erudite commentary to her definitive edition of Jefferson’s Notes on the Establishment of A Monetary Unit. Under the Newtonian gold standard, with variants, the world economy thrived for almost 200 years.

The gold standard also was one of the few things that both Jefferson, and his arch-rival in Washington’s cabinet, Alexander Hamilton, fully agreed. The gold standard’s intellectual provenance, both in deep scientific history and among the founders of America, really is impeccable.

Copernicus and Newton, of course, are figures from the deep past. Jefferson, slightly more contemporary, was extolled by President Kennedy at a dinner honoring Nobel Prize winners when he greeted them as “the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Copernicus and Newton, timeless classics, remain appropriately revered as two of the greatest members of the scientific pantheon. Their discoveries — Heliocentricity, and the Three Laws of Motion — remain central to science. Old does not equal atavistic.  Now let’s get modern.

It is less paradoxical than might superficially appear that George Gilder comes forward to exalt the scientific foundations of the classical gold standard. Gilder does so by drawing deeply upon modern Shannon information theory, work foundational to the high tech revolution very much alive and well.

So, a leading high-tech public intellectual attests to the ultra-modernity of the gold standard. Gilder, also known as the living author most quoted by President Reagan, went on to high tech iconic thought leader status as the author of Microcosm, Telecosm, The Silicon Eye, and Knowledge and Power among other highly-regarded works.

Gilder now presents a brilliant monograph, The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money. In it he explores at greater depth some of the thoughts he first broached in a key chapter of his influential Knowledge and Power. The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money was commissioned by the American Principles Project (whose sister organization I professionally advise).  He therein explodes the pernicious myth of the gold standard as an atavism.

In 106 lucid pages, Gilder magisterially demystifies money. A very few choice excerpts:

The economy is not fundamentally an incentive system, it is an information system. Manipulating money cannot create growth, and it distorts the information economic actors need to acquire the learning that alone is wealth-creation.

Growth in wealth stems . . . from the progress of learning. It is accomplished by entrepreneurs conducting falsifiable experiments of enterprise, with the outcomes measurable by reliable money.”

Claude Shannon “resolved that all information is most essentially surprise. Unless messages are unexpected, they do not convey new information.” But “[i]f a carrier is to bear surprising contents, it must itself be unsurprising.” That is what makes it possible to distinguish the signal from the noise.

In economics money is part of the conduit or carrier. If money is to foster learning and knowledge, it cannot itself be surprising. . . . money must be the measure, rather than what is measured.”

Gilder is unusual, but not unique, among tech leaders in his regard for gold. No less than Peter Thiel in an interview observed:

If you really wanted to create an alternate currency, it would have to be gold-based,” he says. “There are enough people who already believe in gold that you could probably get it to the tipping point. Starting completely from scratch is a lot harder to do. I have a lot more thoughts, but I’d say—you probably want to go with gold.”

In the hands of Copernicus, Newton, and Shannon as channeled by Gilder, money becomes simple and intuitive.  Gilder gives us the real thing: science. In The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money, George Gilder, true to his title, lays out a compelling 21st century case for the gold standard. Gilder reveals anew the gold standard’s deep scientific foundation. Buy a copy on old fashioned paper in better bookstores everywhere or download it and read it.

Delight in a very modern, scientific, demystification of money and discussion of why the classical gold standard repeatedly has proved itself beneficial.   With The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money George Gilder well may have delivered his next game changer.

The newest Obamacare fail: Penalties of $36,500 per worker! THE IRS MONEY GRAB!

” Internal Revenue Service penalty is not written into the Obamacare law.”

Opinion: The newest Obamacare fail: penalties of $36,500 per worker

The Internal Revenue Service swoops in with a money grab

By

Hey, employers, don’t even think about reimbursing your workers’ health-insurance premiums.

Beginning this month, the IRS can levy fines amounting to $100 per worker per day or $36,500 per worker per year, with a maximum of $500,000 per firm.

This Internal Revenue Service penalty is not written into the Obamacare law. The amount is over 12 times the statutory amount in the Affordable Care Act of $3,000 per worker per year. That is what an employer is charged when one of its employees gets subsidized care on one of the health-care exchanges. It’s 18 times the $2,000 penalty for not offering adequate health insurance.

The $100 fine is applicable not only to large firms, but also those with fewer than 50 workers that are exempt from the $2,000 and $3,000 employer penalties. Firms with one worker are exempt. The penalty for S-corporations will take effect on Jan. 1, 2016. The new rule is broad, sweeping and overly punitive.

This new IRS penalty does not assist in the ACA’s stated goal of expanding health insurance in the United States. Rather, it does the opposite. It discourages people from finding and purchasing the insurance that suits them. It also discourages companies from hiring. Consider that 14% of businesses that do not offer group health insurance have some sort of arrangement to reimburse their employees for insurance costs, according to the National Federation of Independent Business.

Small employers with a workforce of between 50 and 100 employees are required to offer the more expensive ‘essential health benefits.’

The administration should be encouraging employers to take on more labor, because many capable people are sitting on the sidelines. On the day after the IRS rule took effect, the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued its Employment Situation Report for June 2015. The report showed that U.S. labor-force participation had declined to a new low, 62.6%, equivalent to levels in October 1977. The drop included prime-age workers, those between 25 and 55, who are normally in the labor market because they generally have finished school and have not yet retired.

Rep. Charles Boustany, a Republican from Louisiana, has introduced the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act of 2015, and Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, has a companion bill in the Senate (S.1697). The bills would allow small businesses to use pre-tax dollars to assist employees purchasing insurance in the individual market.

Why has the IRS taken this extreme view? If the employer reimburses an employee for health-insurance premiums, this arrangement is described as an employer-payment plan. The employer-payment plan is considered by the IRS to be a group health plan that has to meet the conditions of Affordable Care Act insurance, including the prohibition on annual limits for essential health benefits and the requirement to provide certain preventive care without cost sharing.

MarketWatch columnist Bill Bischoff explains the new rule as follows. “Employer-payment arrangements have long been a popular way for small employers to help workers obtain health coverage without the hassle and expense of furnishing a full-fledged company health-insurance plan. Under an employer-payment arrangement, the employer reimburses participating employees for premiums paid for their individual health-insurance policies or pays the premiums directly on behalf of participating employees.”

Small employers with a workforce of between 50 and 100 employees are required to offer the more expensive “essential health benefits,” including hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental-health and substance-use disorder services, and pediatric services, including oral and vision care.

In contrast, large employers, those with more than 100 workers, do not have to meet all the generous standards for health-insurance plans offered on the state exchanges, but can offer lesser health insurance and still avoid penalties. The “minimum essential coverage” that large employers have to offer to comply with the law turns out to be substantially less generous than the “essential health benefits” required for plans sold to individuals and small businesses by insurance companies.

Of course, not all employers will choose low-benefit plans. In order to retain workers, many large employers are likely to offer generous plans, and offset the cost by paying a lower cash wage. Recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that benefits account for 32% of compensation packages, with cash wages responsible for the remainder. However, low-benefit plans are likely to be attractive to employers with low-skill workforces in the restaurant, retail, and leisure and hospitality industries.

Although large employers can legally offer low-benefit plants, small employers are not allowed to do so. This leads to an extraordinary discrepancy in potential tax payments between small and large employers. Hence, they face both higher costs for insurance and higher tax penalties if they fail to offer such insurance.

The Boustany-Grassley bill is focused on small businesses, but it makes sense to allow individuals in large companies to choose less expensive options. Health-insurance premiums are rising substantially. Oregon’s health-insurance commissioner has just approved raises of 25% to 33% for Moda Health Plan and Lifewise, affecting over 220,000 people. Other health-insurance companies nationwide are asking for increases in the same range, and insurance commissioners are deciding whether to approve them.

Even the least expensive plans on the health exchanges, termed bronze plans, feature deductibles that are prohibitive for many. The average deductible on a bronze plan is $5,000 for a single person and $11,000 for a family, according to HealthPocket, a research firm.

Businesses need to take a stand against this new IRS power grab. As Americans search for low-cost ways to stay insured, it makes sense for the government to give employers more options, rather than fewer.

WHY IS BUSH THE ONLY ONE BLAMED FOR IRAQ?

This is a “must read” article!  I’m not going to apologize for going into Iraq. In fact, it was a terrible mistake at the time. Iraq was totally contained, and Afghanistan had not been made stable, yet!  However, I always support the troops where ever they are sent, while always questioning the politicians, especially in Washington, District of Corruption.

THE CIA DIRECTOR AND HILLARY CLINTON

The CIA also told the President that Hussein is supporting international terrorist groupS…

The President was also told if he builds up a strong Iraq, friendly to the US, it can be a bulwark against Iran and not our enemy. It wasn’t only President Bush, but the majority of Congress who also believed this, many of whom have conveniently forgotten.”

There are numerous quotes by Hillary Clinton, Senator John Kerry, and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi attesting to that fact; yet, the press only faulted President Bush.

Even more interesting is that President Bush is blamed for the intelligence community getting it wrong but the Obama Administration never received that same scrutiny regarding Benghazi.
