How in the World was Trump Elected?

shutterstock_315714344

A friend recently posted an article by the Wall Street Journal, on Facebook. The article was titled, ” ‘Deplorables’ Rise Up to Reshape America,” written by Gerald Seib. Intrigued, as I have always considered the Wall Street Journal to be a respected publication, I read the article. It was insulting to say the least. Sadly, I tossed my Wall Street Journal in the trash and have cancelled my subscription, and with a sigh admit that there is no honest ‘middle of the road’  journalism left in the United States.

We have all heard the bloviating of every major news station and every mainstream publication, who demonized Trump from the beginning, thinking they understand the reason that he was propelled into the White House. Of course, those of us who jumped into the “deplorables” basket freely with enthusiasm, relieved that someone was finally running for office who understood what was happening to our country, know the REAL REASON Trump won. We should all be asking ourselves why anyone would believe the mainstream media in their post-election frenzy, when they clearly lied, misrepresented the truth, cheated in the debates and flat-out lied to the American people during the entire election process. These same naysayers are now standing up clearly delusional in their belief that only they can predict what he will do when he takes control of the White House and the once most powerful Nation in the world.

Well, here’s a newsflash. They didn’t have clue when he joined the race, they purposefully tried to destroy him when he was winning the race and now they will misrepresent, yet again, what they think will happen to the United States now that he has won. In their infinite stupidity and allegiance to the liberal political elite, they scream racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, bigot and destroyer of the atmosphere in a continued effort to scare anyone who might agree that we need change. I think, as a self-professed deplorable, I should explain the real reason he won from the point of view of a person who actually voted for him.

Unfortunately, the WSJ article is full of accusations, divisiveness and polarization which is, in fact, the message of the liberal left. A left who demands tolerance, unless of course you disagree with them, which will result in the destruction of  your personal property, the burning of your business or the beating of your life. Trump won the White House because the “majority” of Americans who voted for him….whites, blacks, gays, women, Latinos, immigrants (legal), rich, poor uneducated and educated, white-collar and blue-collar are sick of the lawlessness and the complete disregard for the exceptionalism of the United States and its people. The majority of America falls in the middle, not only in opinions, but in a class of people who believe that hard work, the rule of law and our constitution should be important enough to defend. This majority is tired of being sacrificed at the altar of Wall Street and the political elites through bail outs and stimulus given to the very people who destroyed the economy for their own personal gain in the first place. Crooks who were handed our money, earned by the same hard-working American people, who lost their homes, their jobs, their savings and retirement plans. Our money, given to the same crooks who were allowed to take the millions they stole and continue with their lives while never being punished or held accountable for their illegal manipulation of the housing market in the first place.

This ‘Trump’ majority was tired of hearing Democrats and our President apologize for the very things that made this country great and safe, while throwing anyone, who held this country dear, under the bus. A bus full of politically well-connected politicians, CEO’s and special interests who were purposefully throwing billions of American dollars to the United Nations while they, in their high and mighty, misguided infinite wisdom, want the UN to rule the world. ‘Globalization,’ the new buzz word of the liberal left. A word that ultimately means that the US should be bowing to the altar of the same power-hungry global elites who think they know what is best for the ‘stupid’ Americans. The same elites that want open borders that will eventually make America a place that no longer honors its citizens or puts them first.  If they could fool us in to handing over our democratic society, then who else in the world would dare question their intentions. The United States is a great nation and one that has served as a beacon of freedom to the majority of the world. A country that offers liberty, freedom of speech and religion without fear of persecution. A country where hard work will reap great success. A country where millions will place their money and their lives on the line, in order to be called an American citizen. However, ignoring the immigrants  who have lined up for years to become a part of this great nation, our political elite give ambassadorships, visas and passports to anyone who will write a check to their favorite charity….them. They chastise anyone who disagrees with allowing unvetted refugees, who have already committed mass murder as a thank you to those who have opened their borders, to overtake our nation by calling us racists instead of realists.

Meanwhile here at home, the liberal left, in their misguided self-professed wisdom decided to fundamentally change our great Nation. They took over our healthcare, promising lies of affordability, while knowing from the beginning that a single payer system was the ultimate prize. Our education system, taken over by government, is infiltrated with liberal professors and educators who slowly but surely poison the minds of our future generations. They begin by destroying the integrity of the our nation and then follow-up with altering our actual history to suit their twisted agenda of eventually controlling the masses.  Dumb down the youth of today so they can control the adults of tomorrow.  Now, their successful infiltration of the education system has resulted in a generation who think they are entitled to everything without lifting a finger. A generation who was congratulated and handed trophies in their youth for doing nothing. A generation who is so spoiled and uninformed that they demean the very people who fought for and died for their rights to insult our country and burn our flag without retribution. The same generation who, under the protection of democracy, burn their communities and destroy local businesses because they didn’t get their way. Riots and destruction funded by the liberal elites who use the youth to do the dirty work so they can continue to pretend outrage.  The same generation who cheer the corrupt political elite who have weaponized our government agencies and used them to attack and destroy anyone who dare call out their destructive agendas. A generation who cannot recognize how they are being used by the left to seal a future for the United States that gives the well-connected and the elites more power and more money while the rest of us are sacrificed at the altar of globalism.

Yes, Donald Trump was elected and has, by the wish of the majority of the people, separated himself from the old Republican party and the Democrats, by standing up for life, liberty and the right of every American to pursue happiness without the interference of a bloated, misguided, noninclusive government, who has forgotten its place.  Trump, though the power of the people, will put our government back where it belongs….a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

Rich Don’t Pay Fair Share or Government Waste?

shutterstock_316320536-2

 

The age old argument that the left continues to embolden. Hillary and Bernie both have based their campaign on income inequality and argue that the rich do not pay their fair share. Protesters recently blocked the Citadel in Chicago targeting Ken Griffin, CEO, richest man in Illinois, demanding the rich pay their fair share. But is this rhetoric the real reason the economy is failing and the middle and working class are worse off than they were 10 years ago?

Let’s look at the FACTS.  Currently, the top half of income earners in the United States, aka: “the rich,” paid over 97% of ALL TAXES in 2012. Over 50% of Americans currently pay NO TAXES. The one question that Bernie Sanders supporters can’t answer is, “How much is enough?”

“Barack Obama told the nation that “improvements” in Medicare and hiking taxes on the wealthy would stabilize government spending and bring deficit spending to what can charitably be described as a dull roar. The Wall Street Journal does some fact checking on these claims and finds them entirely false.” –Wall Street Journal

So how much will be enough? Based on 2008 figures,  the national debt was approximately $8 trillion dollars, what does the math say?

“So, if you outright took every single dime from the individuals and families who had an AGI of more than $1,000,000 – those rich bastards – how many days? How many days could we run the federal government? 111 days!”

“Let’s say we confiscate every single dime from individuals and families who made more than $200,000. How many days could we run the federal government? 253 days!”

So Economics 101 tells us that taxing the rich or confiscating ALL their money will do nothing to stop the uptick of our National Debt or government spending. So, what is the solution to our money problems? Currently the United States is almost $19 trillion dollars in debt, which does not include unfunded liabilities, like social security owed that our government recklessly spent, medicare and medicaid and subsides promised through Obamacare among other wasteful programs. When you add in this money owed,  the real National Debt,  that government doesn’t want you to know is well over $120 trillion.

The problem is government spending. In 1994 total government spending was $2.143 billion dollars. In 2004: $2.792 billion. In 2008: $3.253 billion. In 2014: $3.504 billion. Are you now understanding the problem. Government is growing bigger and bigger meaning spending will continue to grow every year. Add insult to injury, the government is not fiscally responsible nor do they take immediate action in controlling fraud.  The Government Accountability Office confirmed that Medicaid and Medicare fraud are spinning out of control.

In fiscal 2014 alone, 22 agencies approved improper Medicare, Medicaid and Earned Income Tax Credit payments totaling an astounding $124.7 billion—an increase of $18.9 billion or 15 percent from the previous year, according to a new report. Those overpayments accounted for over 75 percent of the estimated government-wide overpayments or improper payments. Fraudulent welfare payments totaled over $59.6 billion in 2014 alone. In 2014, under Hillary Clinton, the State Department misplaced and lost over $6 billion due to improper filing of contracts. The federal government actually spent over $294 billion on expired government programs in 2015.

These figures don’t include wasteful spending such as

  • $387,000 to study the effects of Swedish massages on rabbits.
  • $200,000 to determine how and why Wikipedia is sexist
  • $371,026 to fund a study to see if mothers love dogs as much as their kids
  • $804,254 for the development of a smartphone game called Kiddo: Food Fight
  • $856,000 to teach mountain lions to walk on treadmills
  •  $25 billion annually on vacant federal properties
  • $123 billion annually on federal programs that have no positive impact on the populations they serve.
  • $2.6 million training Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.

Have you heard enough yet? The examples above are only a small portion of the hard earned tax dollars that working Americans pay and government wastes every year. So what is the real problem in the United States today? It most certainly is NOT the rhetoric that Hillary and Bernie are feeding our young on college campuses and in States around the country. The real problem is government itself. So to all you protestors out there…..head over to the White House!

Where Does The Buck Really Stop?

pointy

 

It has recently been reported that illegals have been charged in over 120 murders. The finger of blame is being pointed at Homeland Security and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)  officers. However, the blame lays squarely on President Obama’s desk.

As reported in the Washington Times,

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director, Sarah R. Saldana said her officers cannot peer into the hearts of illegal immigrants to predict who the worst actors are.”

However, it was reported earlier that ICE, in fact, released 36,000 convicted criminals in 2013 and another 30,000 in 2014. These releases included thousands who already had serious homicide, rape, kidnapping, drug trafficking or drunken driving charges on their records. Is there really any surprise that these released illegal criminals would commit further crimes within our communities?

“Thats a lot of people who have been killed, that’s a lot of families who’ve lost loved ones,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis, Florida Republican. He further demanded to know if anyone’s been fired over their decision making on releases. “Not yet,” Ms. Saldana replied.

The White House claims it is cracking down on and deporting illegal felons, as stated on the White House website,

“These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.”

But who can we really look to for the bungled releases of these criminals into our communities? Who can we really look to for the refusal to enforce the United States Immigration laws? President Obama has time after time, decided on his own, that he has the ultimate power to decide who will and will not be allowed into our country, despite what our laws demand. Last year Obama ordered the end of “Secure Communities Program,” as part of his executive action on immigration.

The Times further reported that “U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen was shocked to learn that three year work permits and stays of deportation were being handed out for more than three months despite the Obama administration leading him to believe that no part of the expanded amnesty was in effect. It was also found that not only had work permits been handed out, but that the agency approved application even after the Judge issued an injunction in February.”

Based on an agreement reached in Congress in 2011, President Obama said the fence along the border of Mexico is “now basically complete.” In a speech on May 10, 2011 in El Paso, her further said,

“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve got to say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goals posts on us one more time. They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

In response, Senator De Mint replied,

“The Obama administration has not done its job to finish the border fence that is a critical part of keeping Americans safe and stopping illegal immigration. Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double layer border fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept. Today, according to the staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5% of the double layer fencing is complete, only 36.1 miles.”

Yet after, once again, mocking Republicans for insisting that our borders be secured, Obama was at the helm when thousands and thousands rushed the border last summer.

When agents at the border asked over 200 non-Mexican immigrants why they were entering into the United States, 95% said they headed to the U.S because they had been told they could get a free pass simply by showing up at the border. A large percentage also said that their family members in the US told them to travel immediately because the government was issuing immigration passes until the end of June. These children and adults are not scaling the fences, they are surrendering to border control agents, because they know they will not be turned away.  They are all giving the same answer, “if you go down there, the chances of you getting sent back or deported to your native country are slim to none.” “It’s a free ticket.”  “Obama will never deport us and we can receive welfare for life. ”

It turns out they had it right, as Obama contracted not only baby sitters for the summer rush back in January of 2014, but contracted charter flights and bus transportation to move the illegals into communities around the Nation. They were supplied with healthcare, homes, education and food at the expense of the American Taxpayer. Add insult to injury, taxpayer dollars were also used to provide free lawyers and paralegal services to those illegally crossing the border.

Who can forget Vice President Biden saying,

“The U.S. needs a constant, unrelenting stream of new immigrants to buttress the national economy.”

According to the Center for Immigration Studies,

“Thirteen years after welfare reform, the share of immigrant-headed households (legal and illegal) with a child (under age 18) using at least one welfare program continues to be very high. This is partly due to the large share of immigrants with low levels of education and their resulting low incomes — not their legal status or an unwillingness to work. The major welfare programs examined in this report include cash assistance, food assistance, Medicaid, and public and subsidized housing.”

Now, the Obama Administration is giving illegal immigrants billions in tax credits, even in years when they did not work. The Treasury Department’s Inspector General determined that $4.2 billion was paid in 2010, up from less than $1 billion in 2005 to individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States. Leading Democrats are resisting a bill that would stop any future payments.

So when we continue to see American citizens murdered and subjected to criminal acts by illegal immigrants within our borders, we only have one place to look, the White House. Whether Obama agrees or not, the buck stops at his desk.

The official timeline that outlines  Obamas destruction of immigration laws.
