Perceptions of the Trump Train

I like to think of myself as an observer. I watch, I read, I remember. I put my observations into “the big picture” and try to explain to myself what I see.

I was a very early supporter of Trump. When he came on the scene, I had already spent years studying and researching government. I saw the push toward globalism as a mistake. I saw the stagnant economy being orchestrated by special interests. And I saw the destruction of the middle class being done purposely. No politician, in my mind, could change the course we were on. Then came Trump and his blunt talk about immigration and trade. The two things that globalism has harnessed to advance its agenda. Oh sure, there are others, but these are the two biggies.

I studied every issue, researched dozens of polls, looked at all the candidates, and came to an awful conclusion, that I pound all the time, as you probably know: Corruption is at the heart of all of America’s ills. From domestic spending to foreign policy, corruption drives all of government. Call it what you will….politics, the Deep State, K-Street lobbyists, or special interests….its corrupt, its unaccountable, and it appears to be unrepairable. Then came Trump…..a brash, uncouth braggart that claimed he could Make America Great Again. When I saw the reaction to Trump from so many, I immediately knew he would win. You see, Americans come in two flavors…..those that love America and those that hate America. The former is a majority, but the latter is growing from generation to generation. Those that love America, of course, have seen what has happened to the country. But its been like the proverbial frog in the pot being brought to a slow boil….we just haven’t noticed the heat being turned up. These folks, the lovers of America, wanted change.  When George Bush senior was elected, they expected him to further Reagan’s policies. But I can tell you now, this is when it all began. The corruption, the globalism, and the shift in American status. When he didn’t live up to expectations he was thrown out. A new, fresh face, was elected to take over……as it turns out, one of the most corrupt individuals on the planet. His legacy was to institutionalize this corruption.

Let me stop here and explain something that my free trade friends never understood. Under Bill Clinton, we lived through some pretty good economic times. Clinton, to this day, gets credit for presiding over a robust economy. But did he?  Yes, he did. But what is not understood, is our move to globalism had some terrific short-term benefits. You see, it didn’t start as a mass exodus of jobs, a loss of manufacturing, and profits held offshore. It started with lower prices. Los Angeles Port to Be Super-sizedMillions of products were being shipped in at half the price of American made products. If you still had your job, you got a huge dividend……happy, happy, happy.  But slowly, over time, government orchestrated the decline. I say orchestrated, because it was no accident that companies fled abroad. Unions were causing trouble, taxes were going up, regulations were out of control, and work ethic and worker demands were changing. Big business, who now looked at America as a market rather than a home, began the change. With massive government help, the multi-national was born. Companies, that their only interest is to make money and increase value, and to do it wherever and however they can, took over government. The slow boil had begun. Even when Obama came on the scene and ran for president, both flavors of Americans still wanted the change that Reagan had started. A strong, free market economy, a world super power, and a country based on its founding principles of honesty, hard work, and freedom. Obama promised “change”. obama trumpThe word itself was the right word. It appealed to the lovers of America, because it was what they saw as necessary. But it also appealed to the haters, as they saw it completely differently. While the former saw it as a return to ethics and accountability, the latter saw it as a social renaissance . An empowering of every minority group that expressed a grievance. For the most part,  too many lovers of America ignored the past of Obama. They saw only that he was black and wanted the same things they did, and gave him their trust. Well, it not only didn’t work out for them, Obama was just as corrupt, just as supportive of the globalist’ agenda, and the change he promised was cultural, not economic.

Americans are still looking for change….at least the group that still loves this country. They are accused of wanting to return to some by gone era that no longer can be achieved….that globalism is here to stay and the culture must change with the times.

Trump!

So here comes Trump telling us he can give us that change. Of course he would get elected! After 8 years of Obama, a cultural apocalypse, and an economic malaise so destructive, the middle class has all but collapsed. Like all Americans that love this country, Trump saw the same things we all did. Immigration out of control, companies fleeing America, trade deficits at sustained, unprecedented levels, a foreign policy in retreat, radical Islam spreading, and yes, the swamp. In general, America in decline. Trump articulated the things we had been thinking and saying for years. Things must change. The same change that Reagan started and the last 4 presidents tried to stop.trump rally

But Trump did more than articulate. He spoke bluntly and without any political consideration. He spoke like a real person, like any one of us……the lovers of America! I must say, however, there is one thing that stands far above everything else, for me, when it comes to Trump. That is that he was truly honest. He had no ax to grind….he was rich. He had no special interests to satisfy…..he used his own money. He didn’t play political games…..he wasn’t a politician. This brings me to what I have observed. Trump enjoyed a very loyal, supportive base, of 30-35% of Americans.  He also was trusted by another 20% that, like the base. wanted that change. So where are we now?

Trump’s support of 50-55% has fractured. There are still plenty of supporters, but some are beginning to show unsteadiness. That said, I suspect that many of these shaky supporters were never strong supporters in the first place. I don’t mean this in a critical way, but truly, they were looking for miracles. Before the election many of these were NeverTrumpers, CruzAt the 2013 Values Voter Summit. supporters, or libertarians that swallowed hard when he won, and waited. I saw it, personally. Republicans reluctantly admitting that Trump was doing conservative things and pushing for conservative policies. I say reluctantly, because they took every opportunity to find fault. Nothing was ever good enough. To this brand of supporter, short of a new American Revolution…..unless a full return to the constitution was implemented immediately, nothing could be accepted, no matter who was president. Then there’s the free traders I mentioned earlier. They still believe Globalism and free trade are synonymous. They think that globalism was and is inevitable and that we need to adapt. They accuse Trump of being an isolationist because he wants better trade deals. This leads them to conclude that Trump is stupid and out of touch. we the peopleThen there’s the supporter that looks at the presidency as a dictatorship. That a president should be able to get anything accomplished, after all, Obama didn’t seem to have any trouble getting his agenda implemented? Let me say this about the president. Undoubtedly, the POTUS has a lot of power. But it is far from unlimited. Unlike what the constitution outlines as presidential power, the president has the power given to him by the special interests. Does that sound like something you doubt? Of course you do. How can you make yourself believe that special interests literally control the president? Because they control the congress and the bureaucracy, thus limiting the president or empowering the president, whenever that power is needed to implement one of those special interests. Take for example Healthcare. Obama wanted to implement a national healthcare system, in 2008. Something every Republican opposed. So why do we have the ACA? Was it because a few Republicans made deals with their vote as we were told….or was it that the special interests wanted the very thing they said they opposed? Then fast forward…..why can’t it be repealed? The Republicans say they oppose it, but can’t get it done. Why? Because the special interests don’t want it repealed. So see this clearly……one president wants something nobody wants but gets it written into law, while another president wants to end it, which everybody wants, but can’t get it done. You need to see this for what it is. This is how the system works for every issue in America, of any consequence. But I digress. So many of Trump supporters can’t understand why he can’t get the ACA repealed…that he should be able to make deals like Obama did…..he should use the Bully Pulpit to convince the American people….yadda, yadda, yadda! This demonstrates the naivety of many Americans. They still haven’t grasped the premise that the government is absolutely corrupt. So they blame Trump. For Trump, its like trying to write a letter, with your hands tied behind your back. He is trying to work within the rules, while the cogs in congress are being turned by the engine of corruption.  Finally, there are people who are just impatient for change that they were promised. They sit back, do nothing, and expect Trump….all by himself….will fix everything. They criticize everything he does, they say he’s not keeping his promises, they treat him like any other politician…but Trump is not that. Trump is like any one of us, only much smarter. He knows what the lovers of America want and is doing everything in his power to get us there. We must stay with him and we must stay focused on the corruption….speaking out often to make sure congress knows we know. Read the rest of my blog if you have any doubts….my 11 part series on the Clinton Foundation…..my three part series on the Uranium One scandal…..or the two-part essay on the deep state. It’s all there…..wrap yourself in the facts and spread them. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Congressman Jim Jordan about the Clinton Foundation. He asked me to send him what I had….I did. Will it matter? Probably not. He says the right things, seems sincere…but still no action. It will take thousands of us doing this to have an impact. But even then, we are up against more money than can even be imagined, and if you have learned anything about life as you make your walk through it….MONEY DRIVES EVERYTHING! Period!

Let me address one current news item that will come to demonstrate how far the corrupt government will go to stay in power and maintain the status quo. Recently, Judge Roy Moore, won the republican primary in Alabama. He defeated Mo Brooks, a sitting congressman, and Luther Strange, the republican establishment’ selection. He won fair and square in a deep red state, with a large majority of lovers of America. I could almost hear the voters words as they made their choice…..Mo Brooks is a politician…Nope!, Luther Strange is the establishment….Nope! Roy Moore….a long serving, principled judge, who absolutely loves America. Yes! roy mooreMoney flowed into Luther’s coffers…but it wasn’t enough. Now what I want you to see is how to look at what happened next in the context of corruption. First, you have to understand something. The republican congress hates being in the majority. At least, today, with Trump as president. You see, it was good when Obama was president because he could block whatever they did, same with the democrats…..when they had the majority and Obama was president, they too failed to move the people’s agenda. That’s how it works. They blame the other party for their perceived failures, when really they didn’t fail, everything went according to plan. They want and have adapted to a divided government. It allows them to blather on about doing the people’s work, while they continue to serve their masters……the big money special interests. But what does this have to do with Roy Moore, you ask?  Everything. right AFTER Moore wins the primary, a poll comes out showing him with a 17 point lead over the democrat in the upcoming special election in December. All through the primary, the establishment told the voters that Moore couldn’t win against the democrat….then why is he 17 points up? luthor strangeTime to take him down. Out comes the accusations, from so long ago that nothing could be proven one way or the other….a classic she said he said. But what is telling is that 15 minutes after the allegations were made a bevy of sitting republican senators felt compelled to weigh in and try, convict, and sentence Roy Moore to oblivion. The calls for his stepping aside were thunderous…from the right!   But think of this: Senator Menendez is on trial for corruption and pedophilia and not a peep from anyone that he should resign. In fact, they’ve been trying to figure out how they can get his vote back in the senate. If that’s all there was you might just call it hypocrisy, but there’s more. The senate recently put forward their tax “reform” plan. I put reform in quotes because this is far, far from tax reform…but that’s another story. In this tax plan, the corporate tax rate has been lowered from 35% to 20%. Almost everyone agrees that this is needed. Great! Then why does McConnell insist pushing it back until 2019, after the midterm elections? Because he fully expects and wants to lose the majority in the senate. This will allow the democrats to block this tax reform, so everything can stay the same. Once again democrats and republicans working to maintain the status quo. But now you question me….if everybody wants this, why would he want to stop it? Just like the ACA, everybody wants it but the special interests. In this case, the giant multi-national corporations. Think of this. The multi-nationals like Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Apple, Dow, and dozens of others are making gazillions of dollars with the tax system we have. They pay almost no taxes, meet no regulations and pay no high labor rates. Meanwhile, all your American competitors are strapped with all those things. If you think about it….as I have….its beautiful. What a great strategy. Once they lose the senate, Trump will become neutralized for the most part. They then can campaign on Trump’s inability to keep any of his promises in 2020, and be rid of him in January of 2021. The establishment wins. And you can bet your ass, that they are working right now on a plan to make sure what happened in 2016, never happens again.
pile of money
I hope you can see from this example, just how politics and money has destroyed our democracy. Our government no longer works to protect our rights or serve our needs. It simply is a product to be bought by those with the most money.

Rest assured I will continue to do my research and present the facts to anyone that will listen. But I am not hopeful that we can change anything. We’ve changed the people, we’ve changed the party, we’ve protested, campaigned, called, written, posted, and complained. But still, nothing changes. There was a time when right here I would right: “Not until we……”, but I just can’t do it. There is nothing we can do as a people who can change things short of revolution….but even that might not be enough. Its one thing to fight a government that’s corrupt and tyrannical….its quite another to fight 50% of the population that thinks everything is perfect and should continue….the rubes on the left that can’t find their ass in a snow storm with two hands. Our best hope is to stay on the Trump Train, pick up as many stragglers as we can and ride that train for as long as we can. Trump is doing his part….we have to do ours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INDIVISIBLE 2

Their Strategy

In my last post I began an investigation into Indivisible. Before I go on with that report below, I want to post the Facebook post I made that prompted this research. It stemmed from an audio recording provided that exposed organizing tactics of the disruption of town halls in small city congressional districts. Here is that post:

“Recently I posted an audio of some folks strategizing about how to disrupt republican town halls. The main instructor was identified as James Proctor. So I did a little research….duh!

I can’t attest to any of this because it was an audio, and I couldn’t see his face, thus age. But there were only 3 James Proctors listed in Louisiana. The one that stood out was from Jeanerette, Louisiana, almost on top of Acadiana, where the article said there was a branch of “Indivisible”.  Coincidently, Jeanerette and Acadiana are only about 30 miles south of Lafayette, where LSU is. Hmmmmm! I think I got the right James Proctor. If I do, Mr. Proctor is a reverend and runs an outfit called ALPHA COMMUNITY OUTREACH CENTER. Below is a screen shot from a D & B report that shows they got a little money in the bank. But there’s more. On their non-profit documents there are 3 principles, including Proctor. One is named Clifton Tate, who is also a partner in an insurance agency in Opelousas, LA about 10 miles north of Lafayette, but lives in Jeanerette. Mr. Tate is the director of JEANERETTE CITIZENS ALLIANCE FOR PROGRESS, INC. At the exact same address is another non-profit called EVENING STARLIGHT OPTIMIST CLUB. I initially thought this was just some other business in the same building, but it is registered as a non-profit, and the same guy is also an agent for both…Russell Boutte of Jeanerette.

alpha

The actions on the audio are reported to have been guided by “INDIVISIBLE” an organized progressive, very organized group that claims affiliation with 7000 groups all over America. That’s no small feat. I’ll do more on Indivisible tomorrow, but I believe this is a PAID, organized effort to undermine any and all of Trumps legislation. Never, ever, never, underestimate the power or the money on the left. They will do anything and everything to stop our movement.”

Here is the audio and story behind INDIVISIBLE:
http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/27/leaked-audio-reveals-anti-trump-forces-manufacturing-hostile-town-hall/
Matthew Schoenberger, of New Orleans, shouts a question at Republican U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy during a town hall meeting in Metairie

If you’ve read the first post on this story, I tracked the money and followed it to its source. I also outlined how INDIVISIBLE was created and by whom. Now I want to show you their strategy and why they are doing what they are doing. Make no mistake, the left is trying to create a Tea Party type movement. But they are doing it using violence, agitation and disruption. They no longer believe that protests alone can get them what they want. They are taking their disruption to small towns and cities near you. The left is on the march and have the money and the organization to spread their radical ideas to our communities. Pay close attention to who is running for your mayor, your council, or your school board. The only wildcard is the division between the two faction competing for control…..the OFA (Organizing for Action) which is run by Obama and the DNC establishment and INDIVISIBLE, which is the more radical, socialist wing of the party, run by the now defunct Sanders people.

micah-white
Micah White

 

In my research, I came across a man named Micah White. He is a co-founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Occupy Wall Street happened 5 years ago. In a recent interview, Mr. White said OWS was an “constructive failure”. He said this to the interviewer:
“….the number one thing for people to realize is that protest alone doesn’t give the people power. There is no constitutional requirement that Trump has to listen to protests if they exceed a certain size, et cetera. There’s only two ways to gain political power in our world right now and that’s to win elections or win wars.” Then on November 14th, White wrote in an article for Guardian. He said this: “What is to be done now? American activists must move from detached indignation to revolutionary engagement. They must use the techniques that create social movements to dominate elections.”

 

Now, you might say…just another wacho from the left. But they really do have a plan and the money to carry it out. Mr. White tried somewhat of an experiment. He moved from the big city of San Francisco, to a corner of Oregon’s coast called Nahalem. Even as small as it was it had its poor and homeless. With an average income of $47,000 it lived off of tourism. Nahalem has 180 registered voters. He lived there for a few years and then ran for mayor.  It completely divided the small town. Neighbor versus neighbor, black versus white. His goal was to see if he could take his message to rural America. He lost the contentious election 139-36. The point to this, is it was an experiment. This is the coming application of taking over rural America…..win small elections and turn the counties.

becky-bond
Becky Bond

 

In that same interview with Current, another guest was being interviewed along with White. Her name was Becky Bond. She was a senior advisor to Bernie Sanders, and responsible for organizing the grass roots through the use of social media for the campaign. She said this: “….consumers going to a company or it can be as voters going to a politician threatening to throw them out if they don’t fight for the agenda that helps the people with the problems that they’re facing in their lives. It’s also increasingly becoming people becoming sand in the gears of the machine and actually resisting and refusing to participate in a government that abuses their rights.” I’ll leave it up to you to read into her comments what you will.

rules-for-revolutionaries

Bond also has written a book. A book with a familiar ring to it with political junkies: Rules for Revolutionaries But she has taken her knowledge from the campaign and has taken it to a new level creating INDIVISIBLE, an organized, well funded community organizing force touting 7000 affiliates all over America, ready to protest at a minutes notice. But there is a disconnect between the tens of thousands of minions within the INDIVISIBLE movement and the establishment OFA, led by OBAMA. Obama has said that the left needs to create a “tea party type movement”. So both factions have the same strategy, and both are vying for the same money and control. Just as with the republican party, there is a massive struggle between the grass roots and the establishments. Who will win in the democrat party is unclear, but the point of this report is to warn you of the new strategy. They are bringing these protests to small rural venues. They have figured out that they need to win more than just the big cities. But beware, its not just simple protests. They plan to agitate and disrupt, and find militant candidates that will run for local offices. In other words, they want to divide our neighborhoods. The irony is, just as they are pulling out stops to win in the rural areas, republicans are trying to figure out how to win in the cities. Whoever solves the problem will be undefeatable….I’m putting my money on Trump.

INDIVISIBLE

The Investigation Begins

I want to get some of this out while its fresh in my mind…..my memory just isn’t what it used to be. I like to compare it to a mall parking lot at Christmas. A fact drives around for a half hour trying to find an empty space at the front. Someone has to leave (a memory) before you can use the spot to use later.

credo
Screen Shot from CREDO Website

 

Anyway….I have been trying to determine what’s going on with all the protests. It really wasn’t too hard to get a reasonable framework. It starts with a cellular phone company called CREDO MOBILE. This is a real corporation with about $25 million in sales, but is a part of a larger venture called WORKING ASSETS, Inc., which is a 100 million dollar company. The two founders of Working Assets are Laura Scher and Michael Kieschnick. Credo is a very unique company in what they do with their money. Billed as a “socially conscious” enterprise, it donates millions to progressive causes. On their website, they say that to date they have contributed $82 million to progressive causes.

After reading that paragraph, you might think…well that’s fine….that is their right. But let’s go just a little deeper. Laura Scher is a director of the Rosenberg Foundation. (Here we go again with a foundation.) The Rosenberg Foundation funds our old friends at the TIDES CENTER….if you don’t remember these folks they were the money behind A.C.O.R.N. and a favorite place where George Soros parks his money. Oddly enough, the Rosenberg Foundation also funds the RAND CORPORATION, a non-profit, that is also funded by the US government. They do a vast amount of research on many, many subjects. This may be a superfilous tangent, but RAND does a lot of analysis for the military. The other co-founder of CREDO, Michael Kieschnick, is a director at the LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS. You may not recognize this outfit, but I sure do. During past research, I bumped into this group several times. Before I go on, I just want to point something out about being a director of any public or private group. Although it does prove a connection between people, it doesn’t prove much beyond that. In fact some of the most important people in the world are board members or directors of dozens of companies and organizations at the same time. What’s important about these two directorships is, for both Scher  and Kieschnick, this is their only directorship. The function of a director is to determine where they will spend money, especially within a foundation board. So they have to not only know but actually vote to spend this money. Back to the story. The LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS, and the TIDES CENTER are both left wing activists groups. This is where it gets very interesting. The LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS and the TIDES CENTER are also both funded by SEA CHANGE. That’s that obscure organization funded by Nat Simons and Klein, Ltd. Klein, Ltd being that organization that had deep connections to the Russian Oil Industry. You can read about Sea Change here.

blog-logo
INTO THE WEEDS 11

The League of CONSERVATION VOTERS is a national partner of AMERICA VOTES. You know where that takes us? PLANNED PARENTHOOD and Cecile Richards. Normally I’d say that was shocking to me, but I have done a lot of these studies, and it seems we always get back to here or the Clinton Foundation.

 

I started this with CREDO as the starting point and I took you all the way to the source of the money. But what does any of this have to do with the protests in airports and congressional town halls?  Credo’s two largest recipients of funding are the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. In one weekend, the ACLU gave $13 million to Becky Bond and Kenneth Pennington, the people that founded INDIVISIBLE. This is the organization that is organizing and paying people to teach how to agitate. They have paid for and aided in the creation of a handbook called “A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR RESISTING THE TRUMP AGENDA” It is a 26 page guide explaining tactics to disrupt and agitate in order to MAKE congress listen.  You can read this pamphlet here.

indivisible

It was authored using a collaborative effort between these folks Angel Padilla, Leah Greenberg, Billy Fleming, Caroline Kavit, Emily Phelps, Ezra Levin, Gonzalo Martinez de Vedia, Indivar Dutta-Gupta, Jennay Ghowrwal, Jeremy Halle, Mary Humphreys, Matt Traldi, Sara Clough, and Sara Dohl

I also found that Bond and Pennington are also two former senior advisors to the Sanders campaign. I also found that the OFA (Organizing For Action) A group of Obama supporters is also raising a lot of money…..and these two factions are not on the same page. In fact, one article, it was said that they are on a collision course. So what do I think is going on here? I believe that the people at the bottom are truly grass roots. They have no idea how they are being manipulated by the rich elite. They are used just like serfs to serve the interests of those that they so hate. But the money flows in and things get done…..I don’t think they give it much thought. At the other end, the usual layer after layer after layer, covering their fingerprints on what they are doing. Soros, Cecile Richards, the ACLU, all the normal players spending gobs and gobs of money, to agitate and protest to gain power for their perverse agenda. In my next post I will talk about what their new strategy just might be. And how this INDIVISIBLE is using young people and social justice warriors to change the political landscape. Stay tuned, I’ve only scratched the surface.

The Battle Continues

We must win the fight against the progressives!

An essay from my great friend Robert Surgenor. Robert is a retired detective, long time police officer, author, photographer, and IT expert who is a true American conservative and patriot. He sees the problems of America through the eyes of common sense. I am proud to include his latest essay on my blog.
tea_party09
Buckle up folks. Many of you are aware of what I am about to say, but many are clueless as to what is happening in our political world right now.

If we lose the fight I am about to describe, the United States of America will cease to exist as a free nation designed by our forefathers as a representative republic that provides opportunities and freedoms that no other country has ever experienced in the history of the word.

The progressive socialistic movement in this country has been taking baby steps for years to take control of our government. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama all took steps to rip the control of our government from “We The People” and to transfer that authority to themselves. They had grand plans to complete their mission with the election of Hillary Clinton. They miscalculated the will of We The People, and the tenacity of Donald Trump.

But it didn’t take long for the progressive movement to regroup. Barack Obama has set up headquarters in Washington. There is overwhelming evidence that there is a network of noted liberal leaders working together in what could be described as a “shadow government.” And the major objective of this organization is to disrupt and destroy the efforts of Donald Trump.

The progressive liberals hate conservatism. And they are dedicated to destroying it. They believe an unborn baby can be murdered. The conservative movement is a threat to that activity. They believe that men should be allowed to marry men. The conservative movement believes otherwise. They believe that the hard earned dollars of the working man should be given to people who don’t work. Conservatives believe that a person should be allowed to keep what they earn, and if you can work and don’t, you don’t live. Both classic and social liberalism are a threat to conservatism.

The liberals are busy disrupting the town meetings being held by the Republicans. They want to make it appear that conservatives are unhappy with Trump. Closet liberals, like John Boehner are making public statements to discredit Trump and his desire to dismantle Obamacare. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck You Schumer spend hours in front of the news cameras lying to the American people about Donald Trumps’s objectives. Elizabeth Warren has been seen screeching about how she is single handedly going to stop Donald Trump from building his wall. Inside the Trump administration, Obama appointees, still working in many of the numerous departments within the government, are leaking secret information to the media and throwing roadblocks in the way of progress that Trumps hopes to accomplish.

The swamp is much deeper and more dangerous that anyone imagined. There are citizen activists that want to destroy Trump. There are Democratic elected officials that want to destroy Trump. There are Republican elected officials that want to destroy Trump.

We The People had better become engaged in this conflict. If we lose, America will no longer exist. Seriously!

Corrution? Government or Corporations?

Who’s to blame?

Disclaimer: this piece is my opinion, based on my business acumen and years of experience observing politics.

Below I have proven beyond any doubt that the Clinton Foundation and all its cohorts are a corrupt criminal enterprise. I have also provided information revealing firm links between the Foundation and the political establishment and the CIA. This latter point leaves room for debate, but the corruption can leave no doubt.

Over the years, I have had hundreds of debates whether corruption is the fault of government or the fault of corporate America. Those on the left believe the solution is more government power and regulation to counter the corporate corruption.  Laws like Dodd/Frank, ACA, and so many others, reveal this desire for more control and more power to regulate. I believe corporate corruption cannot exist without government assistance and a desire to aquiesce to their needs. With less power and less regulation and less money to spend, government could not do the favors they do for corporate America.

So what’s behind the connections between the Clinton Foundation, Dow, Boieng, Humana, Coke, and the others that have given millions to the Clintons for favors? Corporations are in the business to make money….as much money as they can make. It is not only their business, it is their fuduciary responsibilty to do so. If a corrupt government official will take money in return for consideration, a law, or a favor, they will spend the money. If the government official will not take the money, they will have to work much harder to compete, make better products, or provide services that sell. That’s the old fashion way, but the way all of us expect should be used. Using government to help you make money, is much, much easier. The point is, they will do whatever it takes to make money….they will play in any system that allows them to make money, and they are more than willing to spend millions if it will return billions.

Andrew Liveris, CEO Dow Chemical

Now I want to talk about an interview I saw recently with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Liveris was one of my subjects in the posts below,  INTO THE WEEDS 8. There, I discussed Dow’s use of the Exp/Imp bank to fund a $20 billion dollar chemical plant in Saudi Arabia, and how the approval of a $5 billion loan from the taxpayers was acheived through e-mails with the directors at the Exp/Imp Bank with promises of jobs at the foundations right arm, Teneo. Liveris was a staunch defender of Clinton for president and Dow contributed millions to the foundation. Dow also contribbuted to her campaign, and spoke publically against Trump. Building a plant on this scale in a foreign country, requires state department approval, and Hillary Clinton was SOS at the time. It would seem the whole episode came at a price. That’s how “pay for play” works. You can read the details here at my blog: https://kengeorge.org/2016/11/21/into-the-weeds-8/

Back to the interview. Liveris was just leaving a meeting he had at the White House with other business leaders, and Donald Trump, on February 20th. Reportedly, the business leaders talked about the reforms Trump was placing on regulation, his tax reform plan, the border tax, and the repatriozation of 2 trillion dollars of foreign profits. When Liveris was interviewed, he praised Trump and supported every single point in his plan. After hearing what he had to say, I thought he was a “Get on the Train” Trump supporter. He couldn’t have been more complimentary or supportive. It was absolutely striking! You see, my premise was that Corporations want to make money however they can. They will do what it takes. Because Clinton lost, they now have to change direction. They have to work with whomever is in power to make as much money as they can, and Trump is now in power…they’ll have to do it the old fashion way, which is going to be good for America.

Corruption, The Big Picture

Where we go from here

Corruption, The Big Picturehillaryforprison2016notthewhitehousebut_018cb3_5291212

Over the last few months I have been exposing a pattern of corruption within the Clinton Foundation and its many tentacle outcroppings. It is pervasive to say the least. Since the election of 2016 is now history, and Hillary Clinton lost, will it all just go away? There is not one doubt in my mind that there is no possible way it will end. What I have exposed and what you should garner from these stories is that this is not the corruption of the past. Yes, there has always been corruption in government….not a big surprise. One corporation would fund a campaign to elect a congressman or senator that would introduce a bill or create a regulation to benefit that donor. That’s one thing, its gone on for as long as we’ve been a country. But shaping the global system, while benefitting financially, a global elite, is quite another. Foundations are now the means of accomplishing this. Money can flow into these organizations….many times anonymously, and buy influence from politicians, leaders, and whole countries. It’s not just the Clinton Foundation. These foundations hide in plain sight. They use some of their donations to do good work, while using the bulk of it to shape world events….and that takes a lot of money. Organizations like the Hellenic Initiative in Greece, created by the CEO of Dow Chemical, The Radcliffe Foundation in Canada, that has bought the Columbian government, and run by Frank Guistra, or the Soros Foundation that has bought several Balkan nations. There are dozens of others.

As Americans we were born to be good. So many of us grew up believing in God and country, mom, and apple pie. We believe in the constitution and what it stands for, our founding, our exceptionalism….we are Americans! I often ask myself, since I know history…is there something different about this than about what happened in the past? It’s a hard question to answer. Many times, throughout history, there have been very bad things that have happened in government. America survived and got better and stronger. Is this just another one of those times? I suppose you could frame it that way…but I’m not so sure. The world is changing. It is moving from a centuries old nationalistic system to a global system. What happens to America in a global system? A global system necessitates, I believe, that capitalism has to go away. At least the kind of capitalism that we understand. If global elites are deciding where the wealth goes, who benefits, and who loses, where does it leave the American middle class? I really don’t believe we can stop this push to globalism…but we can slow it down. Hillary and Bill represent the end of a corrupt generation. If we can show them to the door, and hold them to account, we can send a strong message that our ideals can prevail. That doesn’t mean that a new, younger generation of crooks isn’t following in their foot steps, but we will have sent a huge message to them that they must figure out another method to steal, lie and cheat the American people.

While doing this research I came to feel like I live in the Matrix. We go about our lives, while we really have no control over anything that happens. So many of us pay attention, do our due diligence, help our candidates, and vote, all the while thinking we did our part to support our beliefs and vision for America. Does any of it matter? Can this corruption be changed….be stopped? I guess my analogy would say, could we stop the use of cell phones and the use of the internet? Yes it is possible, but extremely unlikely.  This level of corruption has been developed over decades by people bent on power. The lawyers that create the systems are smart and know the laws they need to use to maintain deniability of any wrong doing.  Prosecuting the Clintons and making them an example should be of the highest priorities.

When Donald Trump won the election, I was elated. Not so much because he is a republican or he will implement new trade deals, fix the border, or implement any number of new policies. I have always saw Trump as one of us. Yeah, he’s a billionaire…I get it. But he is a normal American businessman. He doesn’t deal in global corruption. Sure, in his world there are bribes and payoffs and favors…..but none of those things affect the world order. My hope is Trump will see this corruption and react to it. He claims to be a nationalist. He can end this wave of global corruption, he has that power, now. Will they stand by and accept the change? NO! They won’t. If Trump does what I think he is capable of doing, his life will be in real jeopardy. This is no joke….they will use all their tools to defeat everything he proposes, but when it fails….if it fails….they will look to Pence, an establishment elite, to continue the status quo. Don’t forget why we elected Trump. Yes to change course, but for so many of us, we were fighting the establishment in the parties that implements all the demands of the global elite……NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, the WTO, the World Bank, the IMF, the EXP/IMP Bank, foreign subsidiary laws, Bank Bailouts, Stimulus, Low interest rates, and quantitative easing….all policies and organizations to benefit the global elite and big money special interests.

I will continue to do my work exposing corruption….I hope you all will continue to pay attention.

The Clinton Foundation

Good friends….Bill Clinton, Gilbert Chagoury

 

 

I have just finished reading dozens and dozens of stories about the massive corruption within the Clinton Foundation. As I perused each article and each story, I was amazed about how many things I had not heard anything about from our fabulous media. So, that said, I hardly knew where to start….I just dove in. There are over 200,000 donors to the Clinton Foundation. I simply don’t even know if the FBI could investigate all of them and all the connections. It is an impossible task. So where to start?  Many of the donors are foreign nationals or foreign governments. To be honest, I just picked one toward the top of the list. By the way, the list starts with groups of donors giving more than $25 million, and moves down in $5 million increments. At the very top of the list is USAID and UNITAID, both of whom I will cover later. Also at the top are Bill Gates, Stephen Bing, Fred Eychaner, and Saudi Arabia. The guy I picked out, at random, to investigate was about 25th on the list, in the $5 million category. His name is Gilbert Chagoury. I had never heard of Mr. Chagoury….have you? Doubtful. Mr. Chagoury is the richest man in Nigeria and head of a diverse conglomerate called the Chagoury Group that he runs with his brother. Both were born and grew up in Nigeria but are Lebanese and Muslim. His background is one of death and tyranny. He was an advisor to the Nigerian military dictator, Sani Abacha. Abacha was a brutal tyrant in the 90s that suspended all government, the constitution and replaced governors with generals. He bilked Nigeria of millions, and killed or imprisoned his opponents. Chagoury was his money man. Chagoury was convicted of bribery and money laundering, for placing 300 million of Nigerian money into Swiss banks for Abacha. Chagoury never served jail time. AND…..he is a long time friend of Bill Clinton. From everything I could find out…this Chagoury fellow is a piece of crap, and ruthless. So why has he given millions to the Clinton Foundation? Turns out, this question has a fairly obvious answer. But as we will discover as we go through all this corruption, there will never be direct evidence or a so-called smoking gun. Common sense, together with patterns, are all we can hope to use and discover. The old saying is “If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck!” Back to Chagoury and why he donated millions. It has to do with what most would call an obscure group of terrorists, named Boko Haram. But why is Boko Haram so obscure? To date they have killed more Christians than ISIS and Al-Qaida…..reportedly some 10,000 people have been killed by Boko Haram. This was the group that over ran a girls school and kidnapped nearly 300 young girls, which were never heard from again. You might remember the sign Michelle Obama held up on Twitter, “Bring back our girls”. Such feigned outrage! But guess what? Boko Haram was never designated to be a terrorist organization. You see, a terrorist organization designation comes with consequences. Any one found to provide support is guilty of an international crime….things get confiscated…..it’s very bad for business, if you are helping them.  Chagoury owns the two largest hotels in Nigeria and relies on tourism for some of his success. He also owns half of all Nigerian construction. Until November of 2013, Boko Haram was never designated a terrorist organization, even though the FBI, CIA, Justice Department, and the Pentagon all urged Mrs. Clinton to do so. Terrorist designations must come from the state department. Hillary Clinton left her state department position in February and in November Boko Haram received the terrorist designation, years after thousand had been killed. So….is it a quid pro quo? There is no direct evidence….at this point there is no proof, but as we go through this corruption, you will see the same pattern emerge……somebody gives money to the Foundation and then finds themselves benefitting from an American action or decision.
