The BIG Question

If there was nothing wrong with that meeting, why have Trump, his lawyers, & Jr lied about it from the very beginning?

=====

REAL TIME TIMELINE OF TRUMP TOWER MEETING LIES:

July 8, 2017- it was about adoption; The New York Times reports on the Trump campaign meeting with Veselnitskaya, who was described by the paper as “a Russian lawyer who has connections to the Kremlin.”

July 9, 2017 , a mere one day later-   In a second story, the Times reports that Donald Trump Jr. was “promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.” The president’s son issued a second statement that, in part, read: “[T]he woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs. Clinton,” Trump Jr.’s statement read. “Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered.”

July 11, 2017 – The New York Times reports that “the president signed off” on Donald Trump Jr.’s initial statement to the Times “that was so incomplete that it required day after day of follow-up statements.” The president’s son on the same day tweets images of the email chain about that June 9, 2016, meeting, disclosing his interest in obtaining incriminating information on Clinton from the “Russian government lawyer.” (See our story, “Donald Trump Jr.’s Evolving Statements.”)

A mere ONE day after that, July 12, 2017 – On CNN’s “New Day,” Sekulow denies that the president had any involvement in drafting Donald Trump Jr.’s incomplete and misleading first statement to the New York Times. “I wasn’t involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the president,” Sekulow says.

July 16, 2017 – On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sekulow repeats that the president was not involved in drafting Donald Trump Jr.’s initial response to the Times. “I do want to be clear that the president was not involved in the drafting of the statement and did not issue the statement,” Sekulow says. “It came from Donald Trump Jr. So that’s what I can tell you because that’s what we know.”  [MY NOTE: IF that is what you “know” then WHY all the LIES before and since???]

July 31, 2017 – The Washington Post reports that the president “personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said that he and the Russian lawyer had ‘primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children’ when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations.” [MY NOTE: But I thought on July 16th that Trump knew NOTHING about this?!!]

Aug. 1, 2017 – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders denies that the president “personally dictated” the statement to the Times, but confirms for the first time that the president was involved in drafting the statement. “The president weighed in, as any father would, based on the limited information that he had,” she says. “He certainly didn’t dictate, but like I said, he weighed in, offered suggestions like any father would do.” [MY NOTE: Getting a little closer to telling the truth while still being iffy.]

Jan. 29, 2018 – In a letter to special counsel Mueller, Dowd and Sekulow write that the president did dictate the letter to the New York Times – contradicting the White House press secretary. They write, “You have received all of the notes, communications and testimony indicating that the President dictated a short but accurate response to the New York Times article on behalf of his son, Donald Trump, Jr.”  [MY NOTE: Really?!! “ALL”??? You’ve posited that LIE each step of the way. This is but another lie.]

June 2, 2018 — The New York Times publishes a copy of the letter from Trump’s attorneys to Mueller. Dowd is no longer working as one of Trump’s attorneys; Sekulow remains on Trump’s legal team.

June 3, 2018 — Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has joined the Trump legal team, says that Sekulow was “uninformed” when he said that the president wasn’t involved in drafting his son’s initial statement to the Times. “I think he was uninformed at the time just like I was when I came into the case,” Giuliani said. [MY NOTE: Yeah, it IS hard to keep all those LIES sorted out…]

June 4, 2018 — Sanders, the president’s press secretary, declines to answer questions about the contradiction between the January letter and her statement in August that the president “certainly didn’t dictate” his son’s letter. “I’m not going to respond to a letter from the president’s outside counsel,” Sanders says. “We’ve purposely walled off, and I would refer you to them for comment.” [MY NOTE: Pontius Pilate washed his hands of Jesus…how’d that go for him, hmmm?]

SUMMARY OF ALL THE LIES (SO FAR):

Since we KNOW for a FACT that Trump Sr. and ALL associated with him, including Fox “News”, Alex Jones/InfoWars, Breitbart, The National Enquirer, Hannity, Rush, Levin. Coulter, et al have done absolutely NOTHING but lie, and echo lies, and then lie about the lies, and then invent new lies…well, this leads us to a conundrum that BEGS these questions…let’s ask them shall we:

  1. Since it is undeniable that Trump & Co. LIE 24/7/365 should we then believe what our eyes and ears daily tell us? OR believe Trump’s blather about “fake news”/”enemy of the people”?
  2. Since it is undeniable that Trump & Co. LIE 24/7/365 what leads ANY RATIONAL AND THINKING PERSON to think that Trump & Co. will “somehow” now become a fount of truth and facts??
  3. Since it is undeniable that Trump & Co. LIE 24/7/365 then what do the TrumpHumpers believe? Which LIE do they now hold to? Which Trump LIE is their “truth”??

Especially in the light that Trump OPENLY called FOR Putin-Russia to DO what Trump & Co. have LIED about ever since…again, from a Twitter Patriot:

. “Russia, if you’re listening…”

 

SOURCE .

Trump invites Russia to meddle in the U.S. presidential race with Clinton’s emails

THERE IS VIDEO FOR THOSE WHO WILL SAY TRUMP DIDN’T ACTUALLY SAY THAT.

===============================

The REALLY BIG question, the elephant in the room that most avoid talking about is:
any person who LIES as much, and as habitually as Trump…why does ANYONE believe him?!! 

SEE THE BELOW:

President Trump has made 4,229 false or misleading claims in 558 days

SOURCE .

===

ADD TO THE FACT THAT TRUMP & CO. ARE UNMITIGATED LIARS THE FACT THAT THEY ALSO ARE LIBERALS-

THESE CONSERVATIVES SAY TRUMP IS A LIBERAL…YES, SOME SOLD OUT LATER AND NOW SUPPORT HIM…BUT IN A MOMENT OF HONESTY AND CLARITY THEY SAID THIS . ALSO SEE HERE . AND EVEN THE BIGGEST SELL OUT SAYS TRUMP IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE .

So what do we have so far?

  1. TRUMP & CO. ARE LIARS.
  2. TRUMP & CO. ARE LIBERALS.

AND SINCE THE BIGGEST LIE SURROUNDS THEIR CONSPIRING WITH PUTIN-RUSSIA TO STEAL AN AMERICAN ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT WE CAN ONLY CONCLUDE THAT TRUMP & CO. ARE TRAITORS THAT HAVE SOLD OUT TO SOCIALISM FOR WHATEVER REASON, BLACKMAIL, BULLYING, OR BRIBERY.

 

BUT…Socialism has been, and IS an EPIC FAILURE everywhere it is tried…WHY try again??? The below meme gives a humorous take on it-

 

But the reality is much darker.

Trump & Co. have been bullied, bribed, and/or blackmailed into attacking:

  • the press
  • our allies
  • our IC
  • our Military
  • our LE
  • Conservatives
  • Christians
  • and Americans in general

ALL WHILE sucking up to:

  • Russia
  • China
  • Iran
  • N. Korea
  • The Philippines
  • and every other tyrant and tin pot despot that hates America

The ONLY difference between Trump & Co. and any other Democrat/Liberal including BHO, HRC, Biden, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Pelosi, Waters, and Schumer???

Is Trump & Co. have a hair trigger temper and are much more stupid.

That’s it.

Revolving Door Liberalism??

for ?

No, I don’t see that as much of an alternative.

[IN REPLY TO]

That’s why we need a that will stand up to this president, and curb his efforts to stir rage and paranoia among the American people. We need to for in the , and for as long as it takes to get our country back on track.

Twitter Patriot, Mike Bates then added:

If you had told Ronald Reagan in 1988 that in 30 years, the president of the US would be chummy with communist dictators in China and North Korea and eager to please a brutal Kremlin autocrat.. .he might have said: “That’s what you get for electing a Democrat.

=======

There IS a swath of people who think that “the ONLY way to get rid of Trump is to vote ONLY AND ALWAYS for Democrats and other Liberals”.

Before going any further, WHAT would possess a person, let alone a whole group of people, to “think” that to get rid of one group of Liberals (Trumpers/RINO’s) and replace them with ANOTHER group of Liberals (Democrats), makes things “better”, and is “The ONLY way to save America”??

Let’s examine this line of “thinking” closely because this is very flawed, very dangerous, and very DISHONEST “thinking”, let’s take a looksey:

  1. SOME in the “Revolving Door Liberal” (RDL) group may actually be war weary, tired, wore out, scorned Conservatives who have thought they have tried EVERYTHING and it just didn’t work. So screw with voting FOR the most Constitutional/Conservative! Let’s vote Liberal Democrat. This group has been hurt, scorned, mocked, ridiculed, and threatened, and instead of doing their due diligence to FIND actual Conservatives with backbone, they throw a hissy-fit and take their “Conservative ball” and go home….only to reappear and push FOR supporting/voting FOR ONLY DEMOCRATS!!! Boo-the-freaking-HOO! Grow up ya pansies!!! IF you’re a REAL Conservative like you say/said you are then find or BE the Conservative alternative! Quit being butt-hurt babies about it. Let me be plain. I was part of a group on Twitter, “Who Dares Wins/WDW”. THIS group belongs for the most part right here. They were a group of #NeverTrumpers who got butt-hurt and boo-hooed, and now push, and promote the support/voting for DEMS/LIBS  ONLY. Because I tried to present common-sense reasoning based squarely upon Biblical-Christian, Constitutional-Conservative PRINCIPLES the leaders began to LIE ABOUT ME AND LIE TO ME. Why? Because they got their feelings hurt, and instead of getting CLARITY they got whiny, even bullying. THEY became exactly like, and pushed FOR exactly like what they said they were against!! This group have let their hurt, scorn, anger, fear, trauma, so muddy their “thinking” that they promote what they say they’re against, and “somehow” hope to achieve a Conservative end!! You CAN NOT push Liberalism/Liberals and expect to get Conservatives/Conservatism!! THAT IS INSANITY.
  2. The next group is more HONEST, even more Logical, though still flawed, wrong, and dangerous in their thinking. These are Liberal Democrats who admit they are Liberal Democrats pushing FOR Liberal Democrats. They are honest. BUT honestly wrong. The problem is NOT that “America is too Conservative”. Crikey! We’re NOT hardly Conservative at all! Since 1913 with Woodrow Wilson America has steadily moved further, and further LEFT/Liberal. ONLY Coolidge, Reagan, and to a much lesser extent GWB, slowed or reversed it. Trump has taken the BHO/HRC agenda, hooked it on Crack, Crank, and Steroids with massive does of idiotic rage and pushed us to the brink…IF we’re not already falling over the cliff.
  3. The Last Group of so-called “#NeverTrumpers”, is even WORSE than group #1, matter of FACT Group #1’s Leadership may actually BE IN THIS Group, the deep cell, Stealth Liberal. This group posed as Conservatives for years, maybe even decades, but when under fire, or they felt no one was paying attention their actions/votes were always as far Left’Liberal as they could go…and have a convenient excuse as to why they “had to” support/vote/act Liberal on that “one, lone issue/instance”. This group has articulated Conservatism while pushing for as much Liberalism as they can. They say things like “Cruz is the most Conservative…BUT Trump is THE ONLY ONE who can defeat Hillary”. They will say they’re FOR tax CUTS…except when they say “THE ONLY way to balance the budget was to RAISE taxes”. They will say they are “strong 2nd Amendment defenders”…until the next big shooting and then say “we need common-sense gun control”… so on and so forth…

There is NO HONEST reason to promote LIBERALS/LIBERALISM and to expect a Conservative result. NONE.

For more support and clarification see:

HERE  HERE  HERE  HERE  HERE .

STILL NOT CONVINCED?? Then consider this:

 

  1. WHAT is the common-ground that Liberals and Conservatives can via compromise agree on and then vote into policy/law?
  2. Does compromising with Liberals actually mean in real world application and results that Conservatives cave, i.e. surrender Conservative Principles?
  3. ARE Principles negotiable? Something to be compromised, bartered, bantied, and abandoned when “things get really bad”?
  4. IS there actual right and wrong? Liberals say everything is relative, negotiable, and, hence, open for compromise. Conservatives say right is right- period; wrong is wrong- period. That to get good RESULTS we must needs make decisions based on and rooted in what IS good and right. HOW can Conservatives compromise with someone who thinks that WHATEVER is just as right/good as anything else…as long as the Liberal goal is achieved?
  5. Liberalism is a world-view of Big-Government tyranny. Conservatism is a world-view of “Life, LIBERTY, and The Pursuit of Happiness”. WHERE, and WHY, do Conservatives then abandon Conservative Principles to compromise with someone that is wholly, and entirely opposed to their Conservative Principles?

The Queries:

  1. What is the COMMON-GROUND between a Leftist and a Patriot/Conservative?
  2. What is the COMMON-GROUND between Big Government Liberals, and Small, Restricted by The Constitution Conservatives?
  3. Where is the COMMON-GROUND between supporters of National Socialised Medicine (like Obama-Care, or Single-Payer), and The Constitutional-Conservative solution of getting gov. OUT of the free markets, OUT of the private sector, and encourage free market/private sector solutions?
  4. Where is the COMMON-GROUND between the Liberal support of gay/sodomite marriage/rights, and The Conservative’s core belief of Traditional Family Values?
  5. Where is the COMMON-GROUND between The Democrat Party’s daily and historic move toward Socialism and Marxism, and The Conservative’s embrace of America’s Founding Principles?
  6. Where is the COMMON-GROUND between The Democrat’s support and FUNDING of Abortion, euthanasia, and doctor assisted suicide, and The Conservative’s belief that LIFE is the FIRST right given to us ALL by God, and three times FIRST mentioned in America’s Founding documents, (Declaration of Independence, 5th, and 14th Amendment)?

  9. What is the COMMON-GROUND between the Liberal’s view that The Constitution is “a living document” to be interpreted and applied HOWEVER is necessary to advance Liberalism, and The Conservative’s belief that America’s Founders said what they meant and meant what they said?
  10. What is the COMMON-GROUND between The Democrat’s embrace of the Marxist Progressive Income Tax, tax and spending HIKES, and the Conservative’s belief in ONLY Constitutional spending, programs, and as LOW a taxation as feasible?
  11. Lastly, What is the COMMON-GROUND between The Democrat’s view that government, and even Globalism/world government, IS THE Solution to ALL mankind’s ills, and the Conservative’s belief that we are each responsible for our own actions, and that FIRST line of aid is to be family, then church, then LOCAL charity, then, LASTLY, local government?

What is the COMMON-GROUND between Liberals, whether Democrats or RINO/Trumpers, and US REAL Conservatives? Hmmm, WDW and “whomever”?

Seeing Mike Bate’s Tweet this morning made me KNOW that NOT everyone calling themselves Conservative has lost their freaking mind.

Clarity and Courage: Where Are They?

Image result for time is running out clock

To those who have been paying attention it is obvious that there is a massive vacuum of moral, strong leadership. We have NO ONE who can, nor does:

  1. Say what they mean,
  2. Mean what they say,
  3. Have a LIFE-TIME of standing by and standing on Principle(s) no matter the cost,
  4. Is intelligent, wise, BUT also has common-sense AND the courage of their convictions to NEVER cave,
  5. Is FOR “LIFE, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness”, i.e. a free market capitalist, stands for and defends the private sector, private property, State’s and Citizen’s rights, PRO-tax & spending CUTS for everybody, IS for government AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE that IS DEFINED AND RESTRICTED BY THE CONSTITUTION.

There are a plethora of those who do the first 2 or 3. Crikey, Trump is not afraid to say whatever pops into his treasonous, festering mind!

BUT what we so desperately NEED is someone with rock-solid, rock-ribbed Constitutional Conservative Principles and values who will proclaim them with clarity and with courage! Not merely a Liberal lunatic who’s unafraid to spew Hard-Left, Marxist blather! We have THAT in spades! And look at what THAT has given us!

No. What we NEED is a person of conviction, and courage to unwaveringly  proclaim Constitutional Conservative Principles and values.

Where, oh where is our modern day Patrick Henry?!

Let me use Passionate Reason/Reasoned Passion to address several issues confronting us today that desperately need a voice of Reasoned Passion to stand and proclaim the Founding Principles in the face of the mounting opposition…we begin with:

IMMIGRATION.

Image result for mexico's southern border wall photos

When the issue of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION/INVASION comes up Conservatives have let the Liberals get away with using watered-down, generic, innocent sounding terms, or flat-out LIES, like:

  1. Undocumented immigrants. They’re UNDOCUMENTED BECAUSE they entered OUR Sovereign territory ILLEGALLY. At the very least they WILL at the least also BREAK these laws too: illegal SS#, illegal DL, illegal Food Stamps/SNAP/WIC, illegal Visa, illegal Green Card, illegal Welfare/Housing, illegal voter registration and voting, and NOT pay taxes.
  2. Undocumented workers. See above. Then add this: I am NOT a legal, licensed, trained Doctor…hey, let me preform surgery on you, eh. Calling someone who ILLEGALLY INVADED U.S. Sovereign territory an “undocumented worker” is like calling a drug pusher an “undocumented pharmacist”! ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL- PERIOD.
  3.  And the new one that’s supposed to tug at our heart strings, Sanctuary/Asylum Seekers. IN the cases where this is legit there already exists a means to enter LEGALLY, just as are there ARE LEGAL means for all of them to enter legally. Then WHY don’t they? Why SNEAK & STEAL into OUR Sovereign territory ILLEGALLY?? Because they have something to HIDE. Either a shady, immoral, and/or criminal past, OR a they plan on a shady, immoral, and/or criminal future. Law-abiding people, who value the law, and are opposed to crime DO NOT MAKE THEIR ENTRANCE COMMITTING CRIMES!!! 

Another term the 2-sided coin of Dems & GOP use is “immigration reform”, aka AMNESTY.

Let me without hesitation say: NO! We do NOT reward CRIMINALS for BREAKING THE LAW!!! NO. NO. NO!!

Do we need REAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL Reform? Yes.

Based squarely ON Article 4, Section 4  we do the following:

  1. Build a 30 ft. tall DOUBLE REINFORCED Security Fence along our ENTIRE Southern Border. Place barbed and razor wire at the top and bottom on BOTH sides of the fence. Have armed gun towers, motorized Border Patrol, and a rotating of each State’s National Guard along our border.
  2. Have a 50 ft. wide and 50 ft. deep trench along the ENTIRE border on BOTH sides of the fence. Fill it with barbed and razor wire, embed glass shards and sharp pieces of metal in the trenches.
  3. Install a network of motion detectors, sound detectors, ultra violet and infra red sensors, cameras along our ENTIRE BORDER.
  4. Have a standing ORDER that ALL who will NOT halt their attempt to ILLEGALLY INVADE OUR Sovereign territory to be shot, and MADE to leave IMMEDIATELY.
  5. Fine ALL businesses $250,000 per ILLEGAL hired. ALL businesses. The fines collected go DIRECTLY TO Border Security.
  6. Absolutely NO Welfare, entitlements, food-stamps, SNAP/WIC, NONE to any ILLEGAL. You MUST provide photo ID to PROVE you’re here LEGALLY.
  7. Triple the man-power along our ENTIRE BORDER.
  8. Abolish ALL Sanctuary Cities and States. Cut of ALL aid of any kind to them. Arrest ALL who violate the law, from the Governor down.

Do THAT and watch the ILLEGAL INVASION drop 87% or more! Guaranteed.

===================

NEXT, “GUN CONTROL” LAWS.

Image result for Guns shoot people then spoons make people fat

Again, Conservatives let Liberals choose the terms used and set the grounds for the debate…THAT IS STUPID! QUIT DOING IT!

Terms Liberals use that Conservatives not only let then get away with, but are NOW adopting, and in some cases promoting themselves are:

  1. Gun registration,
  2. Longer waiting periods to buy a gun,
  3. Common-sense gun control,
  4. Ban on “assault weapons”,
  5. Common-sense Ban on clips and magazines,
  6. Gun Free Zones.

Let me be CLEAR, ALL of the above is 100%, ANTI-2nd Amendment!

FACTS:

  1. THE DISARMING OF LEGAL, LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS DOES NOT MAKE THEM SAFE/SECURE, CONTRAWISE IT’S MAKES US VICTIMS TO CRIMINALS,
  2. CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY LAWS,
  3. The 2nd Amendment is NOT for hunting, BUT FOR protection against invasion and attack from CRIMINALS, including a rogue, oppressive government, INCLUDING OUR OWN.

Lastly, Taxes and Spending.

For Constitutional Principles and Grounding see here, here, here, here, and here .

Before going further let me state that THIS is the CONTEXT in which the Founders wrote The Constitution:

Image result for Founding Fathers on the general welfare

Image result for definition of delegated powers

Image result for quotes about capital punishment

Image result for Founding Fathers on the general welfare

Image result for benjamin franklin

Ok, based on that what I would propose and pursue is:

  1. BEGIN WITH ACROSS THE BOARD, DEEP, PERMANENT TAX CUTS FOR ALL- INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES,
  2. GUT ALL SPENDING NOT CLEARLY FOUND IN THE CONSTITUTION; MEANING THE ABOLISHING OF: ALL DEPTS. THAT DID NOT EXIST IN 1860, ALL WELFARE/ENTITLEMENTS, BOTH NEAs, THE EPA, THE FEDERAL RESERVE, IRS…
  3.  THE ABOLISHING OF THE INCOME TAX, CAPITAL GAINS TAX, WINDFALL PROFITS TAX, CORPORATE INCOME TAX, THE DEATH/INHERITANCE TAX, THE MARRIAGE PENALTY TAX.
  4. AND IN THE PLACE OF THOSE TAXES INSTITUTE A FLAT NATIONAL SALES TAX OF BETWEEN 7-12%.

With ALL the un-Constitutional abolished the National Flat tax would be more than enough to take care of that which IS Constitutional. THIS would foster much more liberty and prosperity for ALL.

But…it ALL must begin with at least ONE person with Clarity and Courage.

What We KNOW, And What SHOULD be Done About It

The Case for a Trump-Russia Conspiracy Just Got a Little Stronger

If proven true, the president’s alleged role in the Trump Tower meeting could help prosecutors make judgments about his “character, truthfulness, and culpability.”

SOURCE .

CNN’s bombshell scoop Thursday night shined a bright light yet again on the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan and raised the specter that President Donald Trump and his surrogates may have been lying about one of the most significant Russia-related episodes of the 2016 election.

According to CNN, the former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is willing to testify that Trump approved the meeting between his son, son-in-law, campaign chairman, and a Russian lawyer—despite Trump and Don Trump Jr.’s denials that the president knew about the meeting in advance. As my colleague Adam Serwer pointed out, it’s not clear whether Cohen’s word would stand up in court without corroboration. But legal experts say it could certainly influence prosecutors’ perceptions of Trump—and whether he intended to conspire with Russia and then cover it up.

[MY NOTES: Um, Since Trump DID KNOW and APPROVE the meeting, and then everyday since then til now LIE, OBSTRUCT, DENY, MUDDY, ATTACK/THREATEN THOSE INVESTIGATING HIM, CALL ALL MEDIA “FAKE NEWS”…then Trump IS GUILTY of: treason, obstruction of justice, perjury, libel, slander, extortion, bribery, blackmail, and collusion.]

Let’s look at the reaction from pols, pundits, National Security experts and the like:

Twitter Patriot Paul Palmer wrote and linked to his blog this:

Rudy Giuliani has midnight meltdown after Donald Trump’s treason with Russia is exposed

Things went horribly, horribly wrong for Donald Trump last night when CNN reported that Michael Cohen witnessed Trump signing off on the Trump Tower treason meeting with Russia, and that Cohen is willing to testify about it to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani quickly jumped on cable news to try discredit Cohen, but it went even more poorly than one might have expected. Then, just after midnight, Rudy ended up having a meltdown about the whole thing…
=======
BUT HERE IS VIDEO OF Giuliani recently saying that Cohen was as of May 6, 2018: “The man is an honest, honorable lawyer.” THEN last night saying Cohen “He has been lying for years.”
========
Hmmm, when it suits you they are truthful and trustworthy.
When it doesn’t suit you they are long-time liars.
====
Others said:
Rudy: My client’s long-time lawyer and confidante is not credible because he has spent so many years lying on behalf of my client, who is credible.
=======

BILL PALMER:

Rudy Giuliani took the position on television that Michael Cohen can’t be trusted when it comes to the Trump Tower treason scandal, because he’s lied about other things. That didn’t go over particularly well, because Rudy’s client Donald Trump is widely known for being a pathological liar.
========
I just want to remind people about what happened in real time during the 2016 election. Trump bragged about dirt on Hilary coming, after the Don Jr meeting…we know now. Of course Don Jr told his father abt the Trump Tower mtg!!!!!!!!!

Donald Trump held press conference promising more dirt on Clinton hours after Donald Trump Jr’s Russia emails

In a series of emails sent in June 2016, President Trump’s eldest son discussed setting up a meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer

 

Every single day we find out that Donald Trump lied about something else.

Every single day. Cut my taxes all you want, build a wall 30 feet high on our Southern Border, I don’t care.

I don’t want to be lied to by my President everyday. Count me out.

========

Just a reminder, it has always been extremely obvious to any non member that Trump had to know about and approve the meeting at Trump Tower, and I explained why just over a year ago here:

Come On, We All Know That Trump Is Lying About Not Being Told About Russia Meeting, Right?

BREAKING: Michael Cohen claims then-candidate Donald Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources say

=======

Let me close out with a line of Logic from Rick Wilson, then some parting comments with links to much more proof and evidence. First, Rick Wilson:

1/ Watch the “Cohen is _____” attacks ramping HARD from both Trump’s legal team, media boosters, et al. This is a Known Phase of Trumpism. Everyone one of you working for him will reach this spot.

2/ And of course, they’ll be amplified and boosted by the bot army of a Russia, as well as organic MAGAe. But there’s a problem. Two problems, really. The first problem is that Cohen has paper. He has emails. He has contemporaneous notes. He has contacts. He has NDAs.

3/ He has phone logs. He has screencaps of text messages. He has *knowledge* Now, here’s the second problem for the “Burn Cohen Down” crowd. Ready? The SDNY and Robert Mueller have all of this stuff, too. So Hammity, Rush, et al can screech themselves raw. Won’t matter.

4/ Sleep well, Mr. President! Don’t worry! It’s just a little mild treason. Oh, and we’ll be seeing your taxes and financial records really soon now!

Remarkable Treason

Image result for none dare call it treason

Since Trump descended the escalator in 2015 announcing his run for the presidency, people who have paid attention to Trump since the 1970’s began to speak out. They warned. Very few listened.

This article will be a very comprehensive look at the remarks of those who know best and those remarking about them…and then, in summation, my remarks…hence the title of the article:

REMARKABLE TREASON

Many who have followed, researched, and reported about Trump over the years have mentioned his ties to Russia since the mid 1990’s, some have even spoke some to Trump’s and his dad’s and  granddad’s ties to The Mafia, prostitution, and (very shady) “contractors and builders”…BUT FEW have been as on top of this as the Twitter Patriot, Lincoln’s Bible…let’s begin here:

When I call dotard a “mobster,” I’m not being cute. Or provocative. Or jumping on MSM’s sudden embrace of what they’ve always known & obfuscated. NO. I’m bringing U the truth. Donald Trump was born into a front organization of the Genovese crime family. He was theirs from birth..

2/ Until Semion Mogilevich leveraged him into massive debt & took Trump Org from the Genovese, when he rolled up all their assets.

Good Morning Brave Protectors, U know who really needs dismantled? The mob. Here’s 1 article & 3 vids U can share 2 help others get it. 1. ARTICLE: arrest of 🇷🇺 mobsters day after election. Note: this bratva took over 🇺🇸La Cosa Nostra in 90s.

 

SOURCE .

2. That article is a drop in the bucket. 2 grasp big picture, U have 2 know history. In 🇷🇺, after fall of Soviet Union, that same bratva (RUS for “mob family”) corrupted the FSB (RU’s FBI), put Putin in as FSB head to finish the job, then put him in office as President.

3. VIDEO 1: The head of that same bratva at the time was/is Semion Mogilevich. Here’s Semion at Putin’s campaign HQ in 2000. You’ll see him turn to the camera at 1:15.

VIDEO 

4. In ’90s, Semion sent men to U.S. (1st to Brighton Beach, then spread south 2 FL). RUS mob had hooks into La Cosa Nostra & their bizmen fronts. But it was Semion who rolled them & took over U.S. mafia operations.

NOTE: Mafia needs bizmen to LAUNDER their dirty money.

5. VIDEO 2: Trump Enterprises has a long history of laundering money for the mafia. Donald, and his company, are assets that Semion took when he rolled over U.S. mafia. Watch.

VIDEO

6. VIDEO 3 (link in next tweet): This chart gives the connections between Semion Mogilevich & Trump Enterprises. This is how Semion became Donald’s boss. It also shows you the connections of Semion to Putin’s oligarchs & RUS banks/oil&gas industry. It shows you…

7. …Semion’s profit centers. It also shows the 2 men who sacrificed everything 2 hunt this mob: A. Litvinenko (former FSB officer & whistle-blower), & former FBI organized crime agent BOB LEVINSON. Watch.

VIDEO

8. At the end of that last video are the beginnings of a repeat of history. What happened in RUS – with the corruption of the FSB (their FBI), is poised to happen again here. Don’t let it. We can not become a “Mafia State.” – END –

CODA: We spent a year researching 30+ years of US and intl. Intel reports, DOJ reports, court documents, and great investigative journalism to piece this together. Here is our research. You can see it all for yourself HERE .

4/ GUESS WHAT?! The “Russians” in are the Russian mob. The same Russian mob that rolled over NYC mob in ’90s. And launders 💰 through Trump Org. And funneled 💰 into Trump campaign. And sent their banker to meet Jared. And installed Putin. And own Manafort. Mob.

GUESS WHAT?! The President and all his kids (& his late daddy) launder money for organized crime.

That’s why they lie.

And hate the FBI.

And are afraid of Mueller.

And sh*t on the courts.

And give out mob nicknames.

And lie down with Nazi trolls.

And know Paul Manafort. Mob.

Dear , Please tell us about your father, and grandfather’s, ties to Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky. Thank you.

& almost forgot – , Pls tell us abt “Matty the Horse” & Taj Mahal laundering racket (may he RIP).

Matthew Ianniello

Matthew Ianiello, otherwise known as “Matty the Horse”, who has died aged 92, took over as head of the Genovese crime family, one of the five that traditionally constitute the New York Mafia, after its official boss Vincent “The Chin” Gigante was jailed in 1997.

SOURCE 

=======

OK. Time to help, again, with the narrative. Here is what happened: 1. Soviet Union collapses, Russia becomes a “Mafiya State.” This means: organized crime took over everything from FSB (🇷🇺FBI) to Presidency. Putin = OC mixed w/ Kremlin in tactics. This history is undisputed.

The primary, and highest profile, whistle-blower was Alexander (“Sasha”) Litvinenko: an FSB officer in the ORGANIZED CRIME division.

VIDEO .

AT THE SAME TIME that Russian Mafia was taking over Russian state, they were also coming HERE. Where they rolled over La Cosa Nostra, and took over key operations – as well as committed their own crimes/scams.

SOURCE .

Bob Levinson, former FBI who specialized in La Cosa Nostra, was the whistle-blower 4 this take-over. He was also an expert trial witness for one of the more dangerous Russian mafia capos, who lived/worked out of Trump properties.

SOURCE .

Bob Levinson Warns of RUS Mob Infiltration into U.S.

VIDEO .

Both men continued 2 hunt down Russian OC. Litvinenko w/MI6 in London (where he was in exile, b/c Putin was after him), & Bob as consultant for CIA Financial Crimes Div (b/c “Follow The Money”). Russian OC is a complicated octopus. But it had a brain at this point in history.

You can see Semion/Semyon Mogilevich, aka the “Brainy Don”, here at Putin’s 2000 election campaign HQ. He turns to the camera at 1:15. VIDEO . As Litvinenko said, RUSSIA IS A MAFIA STATE.

That same “Boss of Bosses”, Semion Mogilevich, is who was sending his lieutenants to U.S. shores. They rolled over La Cosa Nostra, and found their home in Trump properties

VIDEO .

THIS IS WELL-DOCUMENTED and UNDISPUTED.

You just have 2 gather all the court documents, FBI/ Intel reports, & investigative reporting over 3+ decades. We did this. It was a massive under-taking, but the history & record do not lie. Which is Y we provide all the data for U 2 read thru as well.

SOURCE .

When you combine this understanding with all of Trump Org’s ties to La Cosa Nostra – from the time of Fred Trump, the picture is crystal clear. Donald Trump is a money-laundering front for organized crime. And always has been.

THE FIRST OF SIX PAGES OF EVIDENCE .

It is there for all to see. Here it is…

There is a man who controls our President.

And his name is not Vladimir Putin.

IT’S THE MAN WHO CONTROLS PUTIN…

=======

All that we’re witnessing – everything that has seemed unnatural & confusing about Donald & his agenda is due to this.

He was raised by mobsters & relied on them 4 his “empire.”

He speaks like them.

He behaves like them.

He’s owned by them.

NOW, as President…

He is enabling their transnational empire. HE IS PROTECTING THEM. Even when you’re reading about Chris Steele – and the flares he was sending up about Trump as an “asset” of Russia, remember what Russia is: A MAFIA STATE.

The Kremlin = The Mob.

Got it?

In 2005, Alexander Litvinenko’s work w/ MI6 had resulted in a significant arrests of Russian organized crime bosses in Spain (this work also led to more arrests in 2008). It was a kick in the teeth to associates of Semion’s.

Spanish police arrest Russian mafia suspects

At that same time, Bob Levinson was working with an informant of his from within Semion’s circle – on a hunt for CIA financial crimes division. That informant was BORIS BIRSHTEIN. The father-in-law of Donald’s business partner in Trump Tower Toronto.

SOURCE .

Birshtein sent Bob to IRAN to meet someone, who Birshtein had convinced Bob could help him in his hunt. He never came home. In 2006, within months of each other, Litvinenko was fatally poisoned with polonium, and Bob Levinson was kidnapped in Kish, Iran. – END –

CODA. A chart for you. VIDEO .

CODA #2 – VERY IMPORTANT. See that Birshtein meeting described in the screenshot above – tweet #13 in this thread? That’s the meeting that our Intel community knew about. It was instrumental in generating this FBI report on SEMION’S EMPIRE (CONTINUED…)

BOB knew all about that report. He gave it to Tom Mangold, a British journalist, who got one of the only interviews with Semion on record.

Here’s the full interview/ report – turned into a special for Panorama. Here’s a clip .

THE UNFATHOMABLE RISE OF ORGANIZED CRIME PUPPET, VLADIMIR PUTIN

We are saying it here. We are saying it clearly and without fear.

Vladimir Putin is a political puppet, owned by Russian Organized Crime. Putin is Mafiya.

From Dresden to St. Petersburg

To truly understand Vladimir Putin and his relationship with the Russian Mafiya, we start with Putin’s time as a KGB officer in Dresden, East Germany. It wasn’t the assignment given to the best and brightest. Putin’s former KGB boss called Putin a ‘mediocre spy’, after all, but his KGB appointment in Dresden shaped his future nonetheless.1

Putin was there when the Berlin wall came down. He wasn’t prepared for the ensuing chaos. He was used to taking orders. But there were none. Putin had to act. He destroyed sensitive documents and escaped with his life.

The Soviet Union collapsed soon afterward, and East Germany ceased to exist as a state. With its end came the uncertainty of what came next for Putin and his family.2 He needed a job. He needed a future.
Putin traveled to St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad), where he found a position in the administration of St. Petersburg’s mayor, Anatoly Sobchak. Eventually, Putin worked his way up to Deputy Mayor. Whether he happened into that position, or was chosen for it by another, will require further digging into Putin’s past in Dresden. Regardless, that is where he landed.

6/  I’ve reached the bottom of all research. I arrived here months ago. Have been digging ever since. And the shovel only goes sideways. There is nothing beneath this. It is the bottom. Everything can be traced to it. Every. Thing.

7/  A little obfuscation in that narrative. Always has been. There for a reason – so you don’t see the 💰. Here is the truth: Lansky was the more dangerous of the 2. And the brains. (I’ll get to their side-kicks, Bugsy & Capone, in a sec) Want to know how La Cosa Nostra really began?

SOURCE .

Of course you do. It began with a pre-lude, on October 24, 1918 – when 16-yr-old Meyer Lansky was walking home from work at a tool & dye shop – tools in hand. Meyer – born Maier Suchowljansky in Grodno, Russia (once part of Poland) was good with his hands. GREAT w/ machines…

… and the tools that fixed them. A natural. So, he has his tools – he’s walking home thru the lower East Side – and he hears a woman scream from inside a deserted house. Then, a man yell in Italian. Then more screams. “Perhaps he was bored, perhaps just curious…”

16-yr-old Meyer Lansky walked thru the door & onto quite the scene.

A teenage Benjamin Siegel lying on the floor – pants at his ankles – scared out of his mind. A woman next 2 him – the source of the screams, who is now laughing, “I didn’t mean anything. He was so cute.” And…\

The young woman’s husband, & the man she’s speaking to: 21-yr-old Salvatore Lucania. Later to be known as Lucky Luciano. He kicks his wife. Siegel pulls up his pants and finds a couch. What does Lansky do? He opens his toolbox. Grabs a crowbar. And charges Luciano.

That’s when the cops arrived. Sent the wife to the hospital, Ben Siegel home – And arrested Luciano & Lansky. Because of the crowbar, Lansky was charged with assault. At Meyer’s hearing 3 weeks later, Ben Siegel testified on his behalf. And a thoroughly amused Judge Mancuso…

Fines Meyer $2 & says something that will live on in infamy: “You boys have bugs in your heads. Go & sin no more.” Meyer & Ben were then known in the neighborhood as “The Two Bugs.” The nickname didn’t last long with Meyer, but it stuck hard with Ben. “Bugsy” Siegel was born.

Lots of stuff was happening with the old Camorra capos during this time (men like Masseria that Luciano called the “Mustache Petes”). It was all very localized, but they had a grip. Still, they couldn’t quite see the promise that prohibition could bring. Luciano saw it…

Luciano was “New World” entrepreneurial. Young. Ambitions. Ruthless. I’m not trying to glamorize him. It is what it is. But he needed a brain. He was smart enough to know he wasn’t smart enough to realize his vision without one. He didn’t even know what his vision really was…

But he’d been keeping his eye on Lansky. He watched him for the 2 years since the kid burst into his home and came at him with a crow bar. Lansky was prone to those fights. To trouble. Little guy, big brain, big balls stuff. So Luciano waits 4 Meyer outside a courthouse…

Tells Meyer not to worry about the past. And invites him over for a hours-long convo. Those two young men sat down and plotted out how to take over the distribution routes for what would become the boot-legging era of prohibition. They identified who their crews would be…

And Luciano’s plan was to just start killing the Mustache Petes, and take over their business. That’s when Meyer dropped the game-changer on the table: the automobile. Meyer – the guy who could build & fix any machine with his hands – saw the real opportunity. The vision.

Here’s was Meyer’s plan – and it was f*cking brilliant… Luciano convinced the old world Camorras to let them drive liquor from Canada to key destinations where familia were imbedded, like NYC & Chicago. He convinced them to let his & Meyer’s crews take over running the ports..

– where liquor from overseas was being shipped in. They were the “operations” crew. And they’d even take care of troublesome players if need be (this is what “Murder Inc.” was, btw. Just a service on the overall menu). Why was this so f*cking brilliant? B/c the destinations…

the familia partners – began to trust Meyer-Luciano over the Mustache Petes. Meyer helped them set up their carpet rooms (early “casinos” – gambling & entertainment around the liquor). He showed them how to run their books. He had a great mentor for this, Arnold Rothstein.

And Luciano ran the muscle – skimming his men from the Mustache Petes along the way. Building “loyalty.” Not to say Lansky wasn’t a f*cking murderous sociopath. There’s a story where he sent poisoned stew to one of his own crew – just to f*ck with his head…

I’m sure the guy would have eaten at McDonald’s after that too, if it were around…

Anyway, when they had a lock on the distribution partners & the routes & the ports… the real war began. Luciano took out the old capos.

SOURCE .

Luciano Italian crew became “family” heads in La Cosa Nostra – with Luciano himself securing the most power as “Genovese” boss. Meyer’s boys broke/secured new territories. Expansion. Casinos – Vegas – Florida – Caribbean. THIS SH*T GOT ORGANIZED.

Lansky was Chairman of the Board. Literally. He established HQ in Chicago (heart of distribution routes). This was THE OUTFIT – where the money flowed in & out. Lansky was always on top of the money. And then Luciano’s hand at HQ, his cousin Al Capone, got popped….

Right in the mob’s heart. Tax evasion. The “feds” shifted focus from the murders, drugs, gambling & prostitution – and went after the money. Oops. It was… unexpected. That’s when Lansky, Chairman of the Board, came up with the next brilliant plan. ⬇️

Saying this today, so it’s marked w/a date stamp. Will back it up extensively in weeks 2 come. Here it is (3-tweet THREAD): MEYER LANSKY SET UP THE GLOBAL LAUNDROMAT. It’s his FRAMEWORK. LCN used it to launder their money from the moment he created it.

SOURCE .

Transnational crime syndicate (detailed in Treasury Dept. Reports) EXPANDED IT. But it is Lansky’s creation. It starts with him.

It’s easy 2 claim a trans-national organized crime group exists, when there are Treasury Department reports & sanctions to back us up. Or, did we start by reading them & found the connections through other Intel reports.

Reality is a faithful mistress.

SOURCE .

Panama Papers EXPOSED it. SOURCE .

That’s what we’re looking at. That’s what it means to…

OCTOBER 17, 1931, AL CAPONE is convicted of tax evasion. Unable to convict him 4 boot-legging & murder, LE went after the MONEY. It was creative at the time. At this point, Lansky was focused on elevating Lucky Luciano 2 capo. There would be no fortune w/o that.

With Luciano in place, Lansky went for gold. Gambling. “Carpet Joints” ➡️ Casinos. The enterprise that cemented his billions. Legit profits aside, every leg of today’s global laundromat can be traced back 2 Lansky’s ops: the shell companies & banks that washed his skim.

But there was a problem. That Capone conviction. The taxes Lansky WAS NOT PAYING. Hundreds of millions in dirty money – hiding in offshore companies, but not without detection. It freaked him out. So, he went to Switzerland. Because of this ⬇️. Thanks 🇨🇭! 🤨

There are just so many sources for ⬆️. Books, articles. I could list them all, but that’s boring. So, for reference, the above screenshot is from The Guardian. And this article gives you a decent summary.

SOURCE .

The Dirty Secrets of Swiss Banking

=======

The story of how Lansky was deeply involved in getting that law passed is rooted in his work with the French against the Nazis (not sh*tting you). That story I’m still researching, and belongs in another medium. You just need to know now about the money. The framework.

So, two things for now:

A) Lansky had money operations in the following countries/ territories: U.S., Canada, Cuba, Bahamas, Mexico, Poland, Russia, England, and of course Switzerland.

B) ALL of it was washed through HIS own Swiss BANKS.

Yes. That’s right. Lansky had his own banks.

And note those territories/ countries. For anyone hunting the global crime syndicate today – for which Donnie 2 Scoops washing blood money thru his R.E., those locations are key.

SOURCE .

(*”washes” above)
And, for today’s leg of this story, we’re gonna drop a big shoe that takes us to our present f*ckery. You see, Lansky’s left the management of his framework to an heir. And that sh*tbird brought in a whole cabal of familiar names. He is… ALVIN MALNIK.

(sources for screenshots)

MORE SOURCES .

I’ll let & destroy Malnik for you. Just search their TLs by his last name. In there is A) 💰 for the dotard; & B) an empire 4 Tom Barrack. And I’ll add this… Oh, look! Gross-hole Brett Ratner. Who would have thunk it?

Brett Ratner and Alvin Malnik on the Friars Club Red Carpet Behind The Velvet Rope

VIDEO .

Yep, you guessed it. That takes us right to RatPac, James Packer, & Steve Mnuchin. Which if you’ve been following along, brings in Weinstein and the ever-disgusting Len Blavatnik.

Yep, you guessed it. That takes us right to RatPac, James Packer, & Steve Mnuchin. Which if you’ve been following along, brings in Weinstein and the ever-disgusting Len Blavatnik

SOURCE .

Oh, & someone should really look in2 who/how Ratner purchased his Hombly Hills home. If I were , looking in2 💰-launder, I would be all over that property. But if U send a female agent, tell her 2 wear sneakers. The boy ❤️ his floors. 😎 Mob. Mob. Mob. Mob.

More to come…

Let’s continue w/ Lansky’s laundromat. Reminder: Tax-evasion took down his Chicago capo, Capone. The global money wash came from Lansky’s need to hide his 💰 from the Feds. Mobsters don’t care about jail, they care about their money.

And Lansky needed to protect his (which means also protecting all of what he & Luciano created: La Cosa Nostra). So, Lansky found a method via a new law he helped install in Switzerland: offshore banking. EVERYONE who Lansky was in business with directly…

participated in this structure – in his laundromat. They had to. This is how the money was hidden. This included Lansky’s key bootlegging partner in Canada.

SOURCE .

Again, organized crime is a global business and always has been. Distribution is everything. And distribution partners are at the top of their business pyramid. They are mobsters, no matter how white the collar.

Sam Bronfman & his spawn are a clear bridge from La Cosa Nostra to Soviet-Russian organized crime.

There. I said it. Other researchers are on it. And how this octopus has mutated over decades since prohibition is truly disturbing. Watch this space.

“Sara [Seagram) would buy a $6.5 M apartment in the Trump International Hotel & Tower.” SOURCE .

So, let’s get down to it. To the money. To the accounts. To the beginning. To grasp what I’m about to drop here, let’s remember 2 things: A. The Organized Crime story we’ve been following – the U.S. mobsters who started this whole sh*t-show, began as bootleggers.

B. What Lansky & Luciano mastered was distribution.

SOURCE .

Then, they put a profit-sharing business model underneath it all. Distribution territories were divided among partners = the “families”

The creation of La Cosa Nostra was the combination of organizing both distribution and profit-sharing.

The barrier to their business was law enforcement. There are many tactics for over-coming this barrier: compromising law enforcers & law makers (politicians), bribes, thuggery… But this is a BUSINESS. This is about money.

Lansky is the one who found a way to protect their money from the law. I’ve spelled it out above, but I’ll say it again here:

Meyer Lansky created the global laundromat. Want to see it?

Caribbean = key distribution path. That’s why Meyer went to Switzerland to get the offshore banking law passed. He laundered his money in his trafficking hub & took over every biz he needed. It’s a plan that lasted. It’s the “why” behind locations of Trump-branded hotels.

SOURCE .

Meyer Lansky created the global laundromat. It’s his framework. And Semion Mogilevich stole it.

 

 

Hey 1) yes this is a troubling pattern 2) yes – the Russians specially selected you for targeting, but do you know why?

CBS News confirms that Don Jr. met with Kremlin ally Alexander Torshin at an NRA event in May 2016. SOURCE .

Because his gr8-grandfather was the bizman front 4 Lucky Luciano & Meyer Lansky. Then (when he died), his grandpa fell under their protection & built up territory in Queens. Then, the RUS mob rolled in when his dad “built” TT w/ Fat Tony & Big Paul. Then, Semion took over it all.

Screenshots: Glenn Simpson’s testimony & just one of many articles on RUS mafia in bed with Dotard. And here is Bob Levinson’s FBI testimony on Ivankov – Semion’s lieutenant who was sent to roll-up LCN, worked out of TT, & laundered thru Trump Taj Mahal.

We know what we’re talking about because we did all the research via court docs, FBI/Intel reports, & reading/watching some great investigative journalism. Trump org is a money-laundering front for organized crime, and always has been.

SOURCE .

And do you know who knows this, better than anyone else? Robert Mueller. This is the noose that’s tightening. This the reason the Dotard is freaking out beyond all measure.

SOURCE .

Buckle up, everyone. What we’re witnessing is the final throes of a mob front being torn down by the rafters. B/c he’s also a sociopath, he will try & take us all down w/him. Have your marching shoes ready. It will get much worse, but justice will prevail.

Is there any explanation for an innocent man to do this? How can anyone conclude he’s innocent without answering this?

ANOTHER TRUMPIAN ATTEMPT TO DISTRACT FROM HIS TREASON:

Political Cartoons by Chip Bok

================

FROM A GREAT AND GOOD PATRIOT:

Naming Kavanaugh is the least Trumpian thing Trump has done (tied with apportioning Gorsuch)

Brett Kavanaugh Head On

8 Takeaways from the Kavanaugh Pick

SOURCE .

1) Naming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is the least Trumpiest thing Trump has done so far (tied with his appointment of Neil Gorsuch.) The often-erratic president followed a highly un-erratic path to this pick, outsourcing the vetting to groups such as the Federalist Society and working off a list of highly qualified, intellectually credible candidates. So we get a sterling pick for SCOTUS, from a White House that has in the past given us Seb Gorka, Anthony Scaramucci, and Omarosa. As Ross Douthat notes, at least on this one issue, “Trump has demonstrated that he’ll take his Trumpishness only so far.”

Rather than choosing a red-meat fight to entertain his base, he went with a candidate that the conservative legal establishment will embrace with enthusiasm (and relief).

(2) Naming Kavanaugh was the Bushiest thing Trump has done as president. No, we didn’t get Judge Janine or someone championed by Sean Hannity. Instead, Trump chose a veteran of the Bush White House and a Bush appointee, and (forgetting the unforgettable Harriet Miers fiasco for a moment), a judge very much in the mold of John Roberts and Sam Alito, the two George W. Bush appointees. And no, he’s not going to be another David Souter. That’s the point of having a list.

(3) A conservative court, if you can keep it. Asked what form of government the Constitutional Convention had devised, Benjamin Franklin famously replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Conservatives are on the precipice of establishing a generations-long dominance of the court, which makes the question “What is a conservative?” even more pressing. What kind of a conservative court will it be? Will it be willing to restrain executive power? How aggressive will it be in asserting the separation of powers? Will it take expansive views of privacy? And will it uphold the principle that no one is above the law.

(4) Roe is not dead. Despite the super-heated hysterics from the left, it is far from clear that there are five votes to overturn Roe. Pro-life groups rightly see Kavanaugh’s appointment as potentially a big win, but it’s not clear that an institutional conservative (ME: aka Liberal) like John Roberts would vote to overturn a precedent as deeply embedded in culture as Roe on a 5-4 vote, setting off the firestorm such a decision would cause. Instead, look for abortion rights to continue to be reformed on the margins, and religious conscience rights to be protected.

(5) Kavanaugh is widely respected across the ideological spectrum, but it won’t matter. Or at least it won’t matter as the partisans gear up for the political Armageddon of his confirmation fight. But before the magma flow of anti-Kavanaugh rhetoric begins, it’s worth noting that one of the nation’s most prominent liberal legal figures, Yale Law Professor Akhil Reed Amar is calling Kavanaugh’s appointmentTrump’s “finest hour, his classiest move,” noting that the nominee “commands wide and deep respect among scholars, lawyers and jurists.”

Lawfare’s Ben Wittes, who has also been harshly critical of Trump’s approach to the rule of law, tweeted out that although he will have a great deal to say about the appointment in the coming days, Kavanaugh “is a scholarly and thoughtful judge, a genuinely ecumenical thinker, and an extremely fine person.”

Kavanaugh will be savaged anyway.

(6) Kavanaugh has a sleeper issue. The nominee has a voluminous paper trail and critics are already pointing out that Kavanaugh was the most outspoken of all of the candidates on the need to protect a sitting president from indictment. (Although he was arguing that Congress should take action, not that the Constitution precludes an indictment.) Democrats are already raising the prospect that he could be the swing vote in any case brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. Kavanaugh should take the opportunity to clarify his views and, if necessary, tell senators that he would recuse himself from any case involving Trump brought by the special counsel.

(ME: THIS is the MAIN reason Trump nominated Kavanaugh. Bank on it.)

(7) Kavanaugh’s appointment does not pose a particularly difficult dilemma for Never Trumpers.The fruit of the rotten tree is not always rotten. (ME: YES IT IS. See #6) While many reluctant Trump voters will see the Kavanaugh pick as more vindication of their decision to align themselves with the president, critics are in a different situation: they have to decide whether their opposition to Donald Trump means opposing him even when he gets it right. In Brett Kavanaugh’s case, this is an appointment they would have supported enthusiastically if had been made by a President Rubio, Cruz, Walker, or Bush. As Peter Wehner put it:

One more time: A conservative can be a fierce critic of Trump on many key matters and still acknowledge he made an outstanding SC pick. Is the argument that even if you believe Kavanaugh is an excellent pick you dare not say so? Sorry; no way.

AGAIN: ME: YES IT IS. See #6.

The “D Train” Is Derailed

ALL A’BOARD????

Since Trump announced he was running for President in *2015 the polarised camps in America of various shades of Liberalism competing against various degrees of Conservatism underwent a two-fold transformation: 1) DT’s deliberately muddied and mixed ideology attracted Liberals as FAR AND HARD LEFT as Bernie Sanders supporters, and the fringe/kook “Right” of Alex Jones, (NOT that these nuts are remotely true Conservatives, BUT that was part and parcel of Trump’s deliberately muddying the waters),  2) Then the “Trump Train Conservatives” began to falsely label everyone NOT a’board the “Trump Train” as Liberals, accusing us of “WANTING Hillary to have won”…regardless of THE FACT that OUR Principles remain TRULY Conservative AND we did NOT vote for Hillary.

(*We have proof that he PLANNED on it as early as 2012 when he trademarked “Make America Great Again/MAGA“.)

When that two-fold transformation had sufficiently taken hold then the polarisation started deepening and hardening.

  1. “Trump Trainers” called everyone “Liberal Snowflakes”, even though we embrace Jefferson, Coolidge, and Reagan, and they embrace Nixon, Carter, Obama, and Trump.
  2. A so-called “Conservative” wing of NeverTrumpers began to call for, push for, and promote voting in as many Democrats/Liberals as possible to get rid of Trump…and all who dared disagree with these LUNATICS were accused of SUPPORTING Trump and being LIBERAL!! Never mind that, again, OUR Principles did NOT change, and that WE were Jefferson, Coolidge, Reagan Conservatives who would NEVER vote for ANY Democrat/Liberal like THEY WERE…no, we were “Trump Liberals” and THEY, the ones VOTING LIBERAL/DEMOCRAT were “the true Conservatives”!!  Seeing a pattern here? “Trump Trainers” call CONSERVATIVES “Liberals” for NOT supporting Trump. “Conservative” NeverTrumpers call CONSERVATIVES “Liberals” for NOT voting FOR Liberals/Democrats!! INSANITY!!! The ONLY Group NOT to change is the TRUE CONSERVATIVES who would NEVER vote for ANY Liberal, NOT for Trump, Nixon, Obama, or Hillary…and BOTH sides call US “Liberal”! Again, that IS INSANITY.
  3. US/REAL Conservatives. Yep. We STILL EXIST. We’re the ones who were Constitutional-Conservatives BEFORE Trump AND Constitutional-Conservatives AFTER Trump. To US Principles, values, issues, policy, character, morals MATTER.
  4. Then there’s the “Regular Liberals” who hate Trump, admit they’re Liberal and proud of it, and, of course, only promote voting for THE MOST LIBERAL Democrat available.

Of the 4 groups that are literally pitted against each other, three are actually some variant of Liberal, ONLY Group #3 is truly different.

Groups #1, #2, and #4 are Liberal.

#1 because they support a raging, raving, ranting Liberal- Trump.

#2 because they openly and always push for VOTING LIBERAL/Democrat, and bully and berate all who disagree with them. This group and group #1 FALSELY believe, or at least say they’re Conservative. BUT YOU CAN NOT SUPPORT/VOTE FOR LIBERALS AND LIBERALISM AND BE CONSERVATIVE.

#4 BECAUSE, well, they openly admit that what they do and who they support ARE Liberals and Liberalism. All three of these groups ARE Liberal. IF you vote for, support, promote LIBERALS AND LIBERALISM YOU ARE A LIBERAL- PERIOD.

Group #3 stands alone. WE ARE STILL CONSTITUTIONAL-CONSERVATIVES, WE STILL embrace and promote ONLY Conservatism, we ARE and NEVER WILL support, NOR BE Liberal- EVER.

So, with this divisive gulf of contention as our back drop…just what IS being done to America???

The 11 most dangerous things Donald Trump said in his Montana speech

Updated 5:07 PM ET, Fri July 6, 2018

 Chris Cillizza

SOURCE .

On Thursday night, President Donald Trump flew to Montana to headline a rally for Matt Rosendale, the Republican nominee against Sen. Jon Tester (D) this November. Trump’s speech was, like most of his addresses, a remarkable mix of stream-of-consciousness thinking, fact-challenged claims and demagoguery.

 

Normally, I go through the transcript of Trump’s speeches to pick out 30 or 40 (or 50) of the most eye-popping lines, the sentences that stood out most to me for whatever reason. I tend to take a light-hearted approach to this exercise because Trump’s word-salad tendencies when speaking extemporaneously are exacerbated when reading a transcript of his speeches.
Today, I am going to take a different approach.
Trump’s speech on Thursday night contained a number of genuinely dangerous lines, lines no president before Trump would even considering uttering among a small group of friends — much less in front of thousands of people. Below, then, are the 11 most dangerous lines Trump said last night — and why each one poses a real risk to the body populace.
1. “She gets special treatment under the Justice Department. … Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. She gets special treatment under the Justice Department.”
Trump is talking here, of course, about Hillary Clinton. He’s interrupted in his attack by chants of “lock her up” from the crowd. Trump’s undermining of the Justice Department — which he has done on an almost-daily basis since winning the White House — is deeply dangerous to how people perceive those who are tasked with enforcing our laws. When the President of the United States insists the Justice Department is biased and can’t be trusted, it erodes one of the long-standing pillars of civil society.
2. “It’s a rigged deal, folks. It’s a rigged deal. I used to say it. It’s a rigged deal. It’s a disgrace.”
It’s not entirely clear to me what Trump is referring to here — whether he’s reiterating that the FBI is biased or, more likely, casting aspersions on the whole system of government. Either way, he’s fomenting (for political gain) the resentment that lots of people feel toward their government and toward societal establishment more generally.
Trump is provoking people to believe that there is some “they” out there working to keep you down. And enjoying doing it.
The last American 'trade war' didn't work out so great
3. “But we signed a wonderful paper saying they’re going to denuclearize their whole thing. It’s going to all happen.”
Trump’s assertion that North Korea has agreed to denuclearize and that “it’s going to all happen” is a massive overstatement of the facts. What Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed in Singapore last month was a sort of outline of an agreement. There was nothing binding in it. And this week we got word that satellites have picked up what looks to be more construction at a ballistic missile site in North Korea. So yeah, this version of the North Korea story via Trump misses some major points.
4. “They are so dishonest. Fake news. They’re fake news media.”
Eight days ago, a man walked into the Capital Gazette newsroom in Maryland and murdered five staffers. His motives were his own — he held a grudge against the paper for its coverage of a criminal harassment claim against him — and had nothing to do with Trump’s repeated rhetorical attack on the media as “fake.” Full stop. That said, one might think that in the wake of such violence committed against reporters, the President of the United States might be more mindful of savaging the media to a crowd of his supporters. That would be the responsible thing to do. That isn’t what Trump did.

MORE ON TRUMP’S SO-CALLED “FAKE NEWS”:

HERE . HERE . HERE . HERE .

5. “You know what? Putin’s fine. He’s fine. We’re all fine. We’re people.”
This is a dangerously naive view of the Russian president. First of all, the US intelligence community has unanimously said that Russia actively meddled in the 2016 election. Under Putin, Russia invaded the Ukraine and annexed the Crimean peninsula. Then there’s the fact that people critical of Putin — including journalists — keep winding up murdered under very suspicious circumstances. These are not the actions of a “fine” person.
6. “They’re fake. They’re fake. They quote sources — ‘A source within the Trump organization said’ — a source. They don’t have a source.”
Trump’s impugning of the media’s use of unnamed sources is part of a broader attempt on his part to undermine a free and independent media. For those who cheer that effort — and insist the media deserves what they get — I would ask you a simple question: Have you ever seen what life is like for the citizenry in a country in which the media is state-run?
FOR MORE ON “FAKE NEWS” SEE #4 ABOVE.
7. “A vote for the Democrats in November is a vote to let MS-13 run wild in our communities.”
Campaign rhetoric can be a bit over the top. But this feels beyond the pale to me. Trump is purposely weaponizing fear here. Democrats do not, in fact, want to let the violent MS-13 gang “run wild in our communities.” But Trump knows that the image of tattooed thugs marauding your neighborhood strikes terror in the hearts of many people. And that terror is useful to him in a political context.
8. “Democrats want anarchy, they really do, and they don’t know who they’re playing with, folks.”
Two things here. First, Trump is saying Democrats want “anarchy” — total chaos to be loosed on the United States. Again, weaponizing fear. Second, the threat inherent in “they don’t know who they’re playing with” is purposeful and dangerous. If the 2018 or 2020 election is regarded by people as a war between the rule of law and anarchy or between war and peace, then there will be people out there who feel as though using any means necessary to win is totally justified. And that is a scary proposition.
9. “I said it the other day, yes, she is a low-IQ individual, Maxine Waters. I said it the other day. High — I mean, honestly, she’s somewhere in the mid-60s, I believe that.”
What Trump is saying: A prominent African-American female politician is very dumb. And, no, none of this is by accident.
10. “Winning the Electoral College is very tough for a Republican, much tougher than the so-called ‘popular vote,’ where people vote four times, you know. Much tougher. Much, much tougher.”
Study after study has shown that claims of widespread voter fraud and abuse are simply not borne out by the facts. Which doesn’t stop Trump from pushing the idea to his base by insisting that people “vote four times” in the popular vote. And if you don’t think trying to disqualify the results of an election without evidence is dangerous, then you aren’t thinking straight — or at all.
TOTALLY disagree here with Chris’ analysis. The ONLY reason Trump IS president IS because of voter fraud and Russian rigging.
11. “We will take that little kit and say, but we have to do it gently. Because we’re in the ‘#MeToo’ generation so I have to be very gentle. And we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm even though it only weighs probably two ounces. And we will say, I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test so that it shows you’re an Indian.”
Truly remarkable. In his usual riff about the questions surrounding Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native-American heritage, Trump shows his true colors on the #MeToo movement. He seems to suggest that the movement, which grew out of a series of news stories of powerful men sexually harassing women, is about political correctness run rampant. Trump seems to think — or at least say — that he has to be careful not to offend the #MeToo movement by throwing a DNA heritage kit at Warren. Which both deeply misunderstands what the #MeToo movement is about and denigrates the entire idea of women feeling safe to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

 

Is there anything going on “off the radar” so to speak?

Let’s take a look…

Trump’s Gift to Kim: a One-Time Insult, Now Set to Music

 

Pompeo corrects Trump, says North Korea is a nuclear threat

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that North Korea still poses a nuclear threat, directly contradicting President Trump’s claims from earlier this month.

Pompeo told lawmakers during a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Trump “intended” to say that the U.S. “did reduce” North Korea’s nuclear threat, when he tweeted that “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”…

Defense Secretary James Mattis said last week that he is “not aware” of North Korea having taken any steps to denuclearize, adding that the Pentagon is still “at the very front end” of the process.

“The detailed negotiations have not begun,” he told reporters. “I wouldn’t expect that at this point.”

A MORE RECENT UP-DATE:

Here’s what war with North Korea would look like

A full-blown war with North Korea wouldn’t be as bad as you think.

It would be much, much worse.

SOURCE .

Late last September, I moderated a discussion about North Korea with retired Navy Adm. James Stavridis, whose 37-year military career included a stint running NATO, and Michèle Flournoy, the No. 3 official at the Pentagon during the Obama administration, who has helped shape US policy toward North Korea since 1993.

It was a chilling conversation. Stavridis said there was at least a 10 percent chance of a nuclear war between the US and North Korea, and a 20 to 30 percent chance of a conventional conflict that could kill a million people or more. Flournoy said President Trump’s tough talk about North Korea — which has included deriding Kim Jong Un as “Little Rocket Man” and threatening to rain “fire and fury” down on his country — made it “much more likely now that one side or the other will misread what was intended as a show of commitment or a show of force.”

The Trump administration, for its part, seems more confident in its ability to manage North Korea with precision. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is pushing something known inside the White House as a “bloody nose” strategy of responding to a North Korean provocation with a set of limited US military strikes. McMaster seems to believe that Kim would passively absorb the attack without hitting back and risking all-out war.

YOCHI THEN SAID:

So I’ve spent the past month posing those questions to more than a dozen former Pentagon officials, CIA analysts, US military officers, and think tank experts, as well as to a retired South Korean general who spent his entire professional life preparing to fight the North. They’ve all said variants of the same thing: There is a genuine risk of a war on the Korean Peninsula that would involve the use of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons. Several estimated that millions — plural — would die.

MILLIONS — PLURAL — WOULD DIE

IS THIS BEGINNING TO SINK IN? HERE’S MORE…

 

“Meanwhile, Kim has his nukes,

Xi has a functioning ZTE,

and Putin gets to keep Crimea, with sanctions probably to be eased.

It seems that “Trump” and “chump” do more than rhyme; they can be used interchangeably.

Donald Trump

Trump the Chump

  • 3 MIN READ

SOURCE .

We have now had several opportunities to see just what the president, practitioner of the art of the deal, can do when given an opportunity to negotiate with other heads of state. Short answer: give away the store.

Start with North Korea. Trump gave Kim Jung-un the gift of prestige and credibility by meeting with him to discuss North Korea’s dismantling its nuclear weapons infrastructure. Worth it, says Trump, since after the meeting Kim was rushing home to begin that process “right away,” so that “there was no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea.” Half right. Kim was indeed rushing home, but to begin the acceleration, expansion, and concealment of his country’s nuclear production. U.S. intelligence agencies report that North Korea is stepping up its uranium enrichment program in at least one undeclared facilityand upgrading another. It is also completing an expansion of a plant manufacturing solid-fuel ballistic missiles capable of reaching U.S. military installations in Asia. None of which is something one does as a prelude to destroying these facilities…

…The president also claims to be in touch with his Mar-a-Lago buddy, Xi Jinping. It seems that restrictions placed on ZTE, a Chinese telecoms equipment maker, for its multiple violations of U.S. sanctions against Iran and North Korea, threatened the company with a shutdown and all or most of its 75,000 workforce with the loss of their jobs. Xi spoke to Trump, who settled for a fine and an agreement by Xi to cashier the people responsible for the sanctions violations. Which Xi did, replacing the entire board of directors and firing dozens of top executives. So score one for Trump.

Except, not quite. As the Wall Street Journal reports, “The incoming board members were handpicked by ZTE’s state-backed controlling shareholder . . . and the majority are veteran officials of the shareholder or its state-backed parent companies.” And some of the outgoing directors hold stakes in the company—Trump apparently neglected to require them to divest those holdings. A game of musical chairs says Mark Stokes, a former China director in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

And now Trump is on to a meeting with Vladimir Putin who, even before he sits down with America’s hard-nosed negotiator, has already been promised much of what he wants. Trump startled the G-7 by announcing that Russia, kicked out of the group back when his troops marched into Crimea and grabbed a slice of Ukraine, should be readmitted to a reconstituted G-8.

You may recall that Ukraine had given up its nuclear weapons in exchange for American, British, and Russian security guarantees and pledges “to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine.” If Trump was aware of the Budapest memorandum that contained these guarantees, he showed as little respect for them as did Putin, for whom readmission to the club of leading developed nations is an important goal.

Trump then mused about the possibility of recognizing Russia’s annexation of Crimea allowing Putin to retain his conquest while lifting sanctions because, reasons Trump, most of the people in Crimea are Russian-speakers. That sent chills up the spines of Estonians: Because some 320,000 people—about one-quarter of the nation’s total populationare ethnic Russians, and speak Russian. No one doubts that Putin has his eye on Estonia, and is weighing the possibility that Trump, unhappy with NATO, might pull out or reduce the presence of American troops in the Baltic. Trump has not yet promised to do that. But Putin has already caused yet another rift between America and its allies.

There’s more, but you get the idea. Our chief negotiator can be had, and easily, so eager is he to do three things. First, prove that he can get a meeting with whichever dictator desperately wants one. Second, give away the store in return for, well, not very much. Third, return to Washington waving some meaningless piece of paper that he claims shows just how great a negotiator he really is.

Meanwhile, Kim has his nukes, Xi has a functioning ZTE, and Putin gets to keep Crimea, with sanctions probably to be eased. It seems that “Trump” and “chump” do more than rhyme; they can be used interchangeably.

========

STILL NOT CONVINCED THAT TRUMP IS DOING PUTIN’S BIDDING BY:

  1. WRECKING NATO,
  2. WRECKING THE EU,
  3. BY NOT ENFORCING THE SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA,
  4. BY WORKING TO LIFT THE SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA,
  5. TO KISS PUTIN’S “RING” AS OPENLY AND OFTEN AS HE CAN.

Trump Fires Off Warning Letters to NATO Allies

Ahead of summit, president complains others, especially, Germany, aren’t contributing enough

By John Johnson,  Newser Staff

…Trump has long made clear he dislikes NATO, though he previously reversed his position that it was “obsolete.” Specifically, the US asserts that other nations are not meeting a commitment to devote 2% of their GDP to national defense, reports CNN. Belgian leader Charles Michel says he is “not very impressed” with Trump’s letter, and the Times collects a quote from a former Pentagon official: “Trump still seems to think that NATO is like a club that you owe dues to, or some sort of protection racket where the US is doing all the work protecting all these deadbeat Europeans.” (The G7 summit was a little acrimonious, too.)

Easiest part of Trumps trip is meeting with his handler! For anyone to doubt that Putin isn’t running the show at this point is willfully ignorant!

 

AND, COMING AROUND THE LAST CORNER AND HEADING DOWN THE FINAL STRETCH…

All of Robert Mueller’s indictments and plea deals in the Russia investigation so far

That we know of.

 

According to a recent poll, most Americans don’t think special counsel Robert Mueller’sinvestigation has uncovered any crimes.

But the truth is that Mueller’s team has either indicted or gotten guilty pleas from 20 people and three companies — that we know of.

That group is composed of four former Trump advisers, 14 Russian nationals, three Russian companies, one California man, and one London-based lawyer. Five of these people (including three former Trump aides) have already pleaded guilty…

Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos have pleaded guilty to making false statements about their contacts with Russians to investigators. Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were hit with tax, money laundering and other charges that relate to their work for the government of Ukraine and a Russia-affiliated Ukrainian political party

The full list of known indictments and plea deals in Mueller’s probe

1) George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to the FBI.

2) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December to making false statements to the FBI.

3) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted in October in Washington, DC on charges of conspiracy, money laundering, and false statements — all related to his work for Ukrainian politicians before he joined the Trump campaign. He’s pleaded not guilty on all counts. Then, in February, Mueller filed a new case against him in Virginia, with tax, financial, and bank fraud charges.

4) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But in February he agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.

5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller.

22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine.

23) Konstantin Kilimnik: This longtime business associate of Manafort and Gates, who’s currently based in Russia, was charged alongside Manafort with attempting to obstruct justice by tampering with witnesses in Manafort’s pending case this year.

Two ex-Trump advisers lied to the FBI about their contacts with Russians

AND LASTLY,

Paul Manafort’s chances of flipping on Trump just went through the roof

Paul Manafort

SOURCE .

  • Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, most likely has one question on his mind after being jailed while he awaits trial: Should he flip?
  • “It’s one thing to be a stand-up guy and not cooperate with prosecutors when you’re out and about,” one Justice Department veteran said. “That dynamic changes once the cell door locks and you spend your first night in prison.”
  • One important factor that could stand in the way of Manafort’s striking a plea deal is Trump’s pardon power.
  • Trump said Friday that he felt bad for Manafort and believes he is being treated unfairly. He later wrote on Twitter that Manafort got a “tough sentence.”

Manafort Held in Solitary Confinement 23 Hours a Day

His lawyers say he can’t adequately prepare for his trial

By John Johnson,  Newser Staff
Posted Jul 6, 2018 4:04 PM CDT

– Paul Manafort’s lawyers are pushing to get him out of jail to prepare for his upcoming trials, and their newly filed court documents reveal something of a surprise: President Trump’s former campaign manager is being kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, reports Axios. The reason? The Northern Neck Regional Jail in Virginia “cannot otherwise guarantee his safety,” the lawyers write. What’s more, the jail is about a two-hour drive for his defense team, and all of this “makes it effectively impossible for Mr. Manafort to prepare” for his trials on money laundering and bank fraud.

Manafort had his bail revoked and got sent to jail last month after he was accused of tampering with witnesses. His lawyers are appealing that decision, but prosecutors say the limitations he’s facing behind bars “are common to defendants incarcerated pending trial,” per New York. The court documents do not provide details on the safety concerns regarding Manafort. His first trial is scheduled to start on July 25, and the charges he’s facing are unrelated to his work on the Trump campaign of 2016.

MORE FROM SETH ABRAMSON, TWITTER PATRIOT, THIS IS A TWEET STORM, A LITTLE TONGUE-IN-CHEEK:

I have this terrible fear Mueller will wrap up his investigation and we’ll discover that all Trump did is

* launder hundreds of millions of dollars

* accept hundreds of millions in bribes

* conspire to blackmail the FBI into reopening Clinton’s case

* aid and abet Russian crimes

2/ The *worst* part: when the Right says “LOL” we’ll have to resort to saying Trump

* committed 25+ acts of felony Obstruction

* tampered with 10+ federal witnesses

* conspired to offer pardons for silence

* sold U.S. foreign policy for private gain

* lied 3,000+ times to voters

3/ In disgrace, Trump critics will eventually fall back on saying he

* knowingly hired Russian agents

* instructed aides to illegally negotiate US policy

* forced his son to issue a false statement about a felony

* spent the campaign negotiating secret business deals with Russia

4/ In response to these lame allegations, the Right will have some killer responses, for instance that Trump

* lied repeatedly about releasing his tax returns

* admitted to being a serial sexual assailant

* never recused himself from his businesses as he promised us pre-election

5/ And think how easily he’ll be reelected, given his record of

* nearly tweeting us into nuclear war, claiming he averted it/deserved a Nobel Prize, only to have North Korea punk him like a schmuck

* nearly crashing Earth’s economy daily with policies he brain-farted on Twitter

6/ Democrats have no answer to the strong leadership Trump has shown by

* picking judges from someone else’s list

* knowing less about every issue than anyone in the room

* changing his position on every issue

* betraying his constituencies with policies he hid while campaigning

7/ No one can argue Trump surrounds himself, as *promised*, with the best people, including all these who’ve never lied to the FBI, media, or voters

* Flynn

* Sessions

* Stone

* Prince

* Gordon

* Spicer

* Hicks

* Manafort

* Gates

* Papadopoulos

* Page

* Conway

* Sanders

and…

8/ * Nunberg

* Lewandowski

* Kushner

* Trump Jr.

* Bannon

* Eric Trump

* Ivanka

* Caputo

* Clovis

* Cohen

* Giuliani

* Manafort

* Dowd

* Toensing

* Nix

* Sater

* Sekulow

* diGenova

* Schiller

* Nunes

* Hannity

* Pirro

* Pence

* Schmitz

* McFarlane

* Gorka

and more best people.

9/ And in terms of US foreign policy, it’s well past time we identified our friends and enemies, as Trump has

FRIENDS

Russia

China

The Philippines

Saudia Arabia

Hungary

The UAE

ENEMIES

All of Europe

All of NATO

All of the United Nations except for our friends (see list above)

10/ So you conservatives can only imagine the embarrassment and sense of being a silly snowflake we progressives feel daily at knowing that we know only 10% of what Robert Mueller does and yet having absolutely no basis to doubt this man’s actions, judgment, or policies

Very sad

PS/ A reader points out that I forgot to mention North Korea as one of the great new friends our dear leader has made No one can deny it the proof is in the pudding on that one

AND….

It took just sixteen days for this tweet to blow up in Trump’s face

AND-

AND BEFORE I CLOSE WITH A FLOURISH OF SUPPORTIVE LINKS, LET ME POSIT THIS:

Why was the FBI giving so much information to the Fake News Media. They are not supposed to be doing that, and knowing the enemy of the people Fake News, they put their own spin on it – truth doesn’t matter to them!

Translate Trump

And when else have we heard: “Enemy of the People…?”

1793: France. When “ennemi du people” met the guillotine for disagreement.

1927: Soviet Union. When Stalin expelled “vrag naroda” to labor camps.

1941: Nazi Germany. When Goebbels called Jews “a sworn enemy of the people.”

Independence Day: The Well-Spring of Liberty and Freedom

INDEPENDENCE DAY:

REMEMBERING AND

CELEBRATING

@2018.

My earliest memories of Independence Day, The 4th of July, were of family, cook-outs, fun, and fireworks. There was laughter, awe, and excitement over the festivities and trappings of the celebration. As I grew my parents, both Christians, my dad a Pastor and a WWII Navy vet from the Pacific Theatre, taught us kids the REAL meaning of Independence Day.

My FONDEST memories of Independence Day are when I began to realise what Independence Day was really all about…the price paid to get…and KEEP IT.

THIS is a sharing of what Independence Day means…at least to me

John Adams
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Second President of the United
States

[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish
the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of
a free constitution is pure virtue.

(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams,
Second President of the United States
, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston:
Little, Brown, 1854), Vol. IX, p. 401, to Zabdiel Adams on June 21, 1776.)

[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending
with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution
was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the
government of any other.

(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams,
Second President of the United States
, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston:
Little, Brown, and Co. 1854), Vol. IX, p. 229, October 11, 1798.)

The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property
is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and
public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shalt not
covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of Heaven, they must
be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or
made free.

(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams,
Second President of the United States
, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston:
Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1851), Vol. VI, p. 9.)

John Quincy Adams

Sixth President of the United States

The law given from Sinai was a civil and municipal as well
as a moral and religious code; it contained many statutes . . . of universal
application-laws essential to the existence of men in society, and most of which
have been enacted by every nation which ever professed any code of laws.

(Source: John Quincy Adams, Letters of John
Quincy Adams, to His Son, on the Bible and Its Teachings
 (Auburn: James
M. Alden, 1850), p. 61.)

There are three points of doctrine the belief of which
forms the foundation of all morality. The first is the existence of God; the
second is the immortality of the human soul; and the third is a future state
of rewards and punishments. Suppose it possible for a man to disbelieve either
of these three articles of faith and that man will have no conscience, he will
have no other law than that of the tiger or the shark. The laws of man may bind
him in chains or may put him to death, but they never can make him wise, virtuous,
or happy.

Quincy Adams to His Son on the Bible and Its Teachings

Alden, 1850), pp. 22-23.)

Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of
time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality
is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery,

Oliver Ellsworth

Chief-Justice of the Supreme Court

[T]he primary objects of government are the peace, order, and prosperity of society. . . . To the promotion of these objects, particularly in a republican government, good morals are essential. Institutions for the promotion of good morals are therefore objects of legislative provision and support: and
among these . . . religious institutions are eminently useful and important. . . . [T]he legislature, charged with the great interests of the community, may, and ought to countenance, aid and protect religious institutions—institutions wisely calculated to direct men to the performance of all the duties arising from their connection with each other, and to prevent or repress those evils which flow from unrestrained passion.

I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live,
the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs
of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is
it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir,
in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in
vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without
His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than
the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our partial local interests; our
projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye
word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this
unfortunate instance, despair of establishing governments by human wisdom and
leave it to chance, war and conquest.

I therefore beg leave to move that
henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on
our deliberations be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to
business, and that one or more of the clergy of this city be requested to officiate
in that service.

Thomas Jefferson

Signer of the Declaration of Independence
and Third President of the United States

Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the
earth itself and all it contains rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose
that in any possible situation, or under any circumstances, it is best for you
to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you. Whenever
you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to yourself, ask yourself
how you would act were all the world looking at you, and act accordingly. Encourage
all your virtuous dispositions, and exercise them whenever an opportunity arises,
being assured that they will gain strength by exercise, as a limb of the body
does, and that exercise will make them habitual. From the practice of the purest
virtue, you may be assured you will derive the most sublime comforts in every
moment of life, and in the moment of death.

[P]ublic utility pleads most forcibly for the general distribution
of the Holy Scriptures. The doctrine they preach, the obligations they impose,
the punishment they threaten, the rewards they promise, the stamp and image
of divinity they bear, which produces a conviction of their truths, can alone
secure to society, order and peace, and to our courts of justice and constitutions
of government, purity, stability and usefulness. In vain, without the Bible,
we increase penal laws and draw entrenchments around our institutions. Bibles
are strong entrenchments. Where they abound, men cannot pursue wicked courses,
and at the same time enjoy quiet conscience.

(Source: Benjamin Rush, Essays, Literary,

We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only
means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that
is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by
the means of the Bible. For this Divine Book, above all others, favors that
equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and those sober and frugal
virtues, which constitute the soul of republicanism.

By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing from their

Joseph Story

Supreme Court Justice

Indeed, the right of a society or government to [participate] in matters of religion will
hardly be contested by any persons who believe that piety, religion, and morality are intimately
connected with the well being of the state and indispensable to the administrations of civil justice. The promulgation of the great doctrines of religion—the being, and attributes, and providence of one Almighty God; the responsibility to Him for all our actions, founded upon moral accountability; a future state of rewards and punishments; the cultivation of all the personal, social, and benevolent virtues—these never can be a matter of indifference in any well-ordered community. It is, indeed, difficult to conceive how any civilized society can
well exist without them.

George Washington

“Father of Our Country”

While just government protects all in their religious rights,
true religion affords to government its surest support.

(Source: George Washington, The Writings
of George Washington
, John C. Fitzpatrick, editor (Washington, D.C.: U.S.
Government Printing Office, 1932), Vol. XXX, p. 432 n., from his address to
the Synod of the Dutch Reformed Church in North America, October 9, 1789.)

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political
prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would
that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great
pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of man and citizens.
The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish
them. A volume could not trace all their connexions with private and public
felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation,
for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the
instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice?

And let us with caution indulge
the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may
be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure,
reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail
in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or
morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends
with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a
sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the
foundation of the fabric?

The most perfect maxims and examples for regulating your

We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands; we have a check upon two branches of the legislature . . . the power I mean of electing at stated periods [each] branch. . . . It becomes necessary to every [citizen] then, to be in some degree a statesman, and to examine and judge for himself of the tendency of political principles and measures. Let us examine, then, with a sober, a manly . . . and a Christian spirit; let us neglect all party [loyalty] and advert to facts; let us believe no man to be infallible or impeccable in government any more than in religion; take no man’s word against evidence, nor implicitly adopt the sentiments of others who may be deceived themselves, or may be interested in deceiving us.

not the providence of God nor regard His laws will be uncorrupt in office,

I have one great political idea. . . . That idea is an old one. It is widely

is in substance, “Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any
people” [Proverbs 14:34]. This constitutes my politics – the negative and
positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics. . . . I feel it my
duty to do all in my power to infuse this idea into the public mind, that
it may speedily be recognized and practiced upon by our people.

Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them; and as governments
are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments
rather depend upon men than men upon governments. Let men be good and the
government cannot be bad. . . . But if men be bad, let the government be never
so good, they will endeavor to warp and spoil it to their turn. . . .[T]hough
good laws do well, good men do better; for good laws may want [lack] good
men and be abolished or invaded by ill men; but good men will never want good
laws nor suffer [allow] ill ones.

bearing on the interests of others as well as on his own.

In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers,
let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers,
“just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of government
depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their
duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted;
laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local
purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws;
the public revenues will be sqandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the
citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails
to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens
neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the
laws.

Those who wish well to the State ought to choose to places of trust men of

As we near the end of this years Independence Day article let add more from Founding Father, and The Reverend John Witherspoon (who would be ASHAMED at what his multi-great-grand niece, Reese is doing):

Should Christians – Or Ministers – Run For Office?

Today’s critics assert that Christians should not be involved with politics
or government, and especially that ministers should not be involved. Such opposition
is not new. In fact, two centuries ago, Founding Father John Witherspoon delivered
a sagacious rebuttal to these same objections.

should-christians-or-ministers-run-for-office

 

John Witherspoon (1723-1794) was a distinguished Founding Father – the president
of Princeton University, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and a ratifier of the U.S. Constitution. He served on over 100 committees in Congress and was head of the Board of War (essentially, he was the congressional “boss” for Commander-in-Chief George Washington). But John Witherspoon was also a minister of the Gospel – he
was the Rev. Dr. John Witherspoon! In fact, Dr. Witherspoon was the Billy Graham
of his day – one of the most famous American ministers of that era, with volumes
of published Gospel sermons.

A provision in the 1777 Georgia constitution reflected the belief that ministers
should not be involved in politics. Supporters of this provision asserted the
ministry of the Gospel was so important that ministers should not be distracted
from their duty. (For example, the 1777 New York Constitution explained, “Whereas
ministers of the Gospel are, by their profession, dedicated to the service of
God and the care of souls and ought not to be diverted from the great duties
of their function; therefore, no minister of the gospel . . . shall be eligible
to . . . any civil office within this State.”) Following this same logic, the
Georgia constitution declared, “No clergyman of any denomination shall be allowed
a seat in the legislature.”

When Dr. Witherspoon learned of this prohibition, he penned the following tongue-in-cheek
piece exposing the absurdity of that position. Interestingly, when Georgia wrote
its third Constitution in 1798, a strong declaration of the rights of religious persons was inserted – a vast change from
its first Constitution.

Following is Dr. Witherspoon’s writing on why ministers should be able to serve
in State legislatures:

Sir,

In your paper of Saturday last, you have given us the new Constitution of
Georgia, in which I find the following resolution, “No clergyman of any denomination
shall be a member of the General Assembly.” I would be very well satisfied
that some of the gentlemen who have made that an essential article of this
constitution, or who have inserted and approve it in other constitutions,
would be pleased to explain a little the principles, as well as to ascertain
the meaning of it.

Perhaps we understand pretty generally, what is meant by a clergyman, viz.
a person regularly called and set apart to the ministry of the gospel, and
authorized to preach and administer the sacraments of the Christian religion.
Now suffer me to ask this question: Before any man among us was ordained a
minister, was he not a citizen of the United States, and if being in Georgia,
a citizen of the state of Georgia? Had he not then a right to be elected a
member of the assembly, if qualified in point of property? How then has he
lost, or why is he deprived of this right? Is it by offence or disqualification?
Is it a sin against the public to become a minister? Does it merit that the
person, who is guilty of it should be immediately deprived of one of his most
important rights as a citizen? Is not this inflicting a penalty which always
supposes an offence? Is a minister then disqualified for the office of a senator
or representative? Does this calling and profession render him stupid or ignorant?
I am inclined to form a very high opinion of the natural understanding of
the freemen and freeholders of the state of Georgia, as well as of their improvement
and culture by education, and yet I am not able to conceive, but that some
of those equally qualified, may enter into the clerical order: and then it
must not be unfitness, but some other reason that produces the exclusion.
Perhaps it may be thought that they are excluded from civil authority, that
they may be more fully and constantly employed in their spiritual functions.
If this had been the ground of it, how much more properly would it have appeared,
as an order of an ecclesiastical body with respect to their own members. In
that case I should not only have forgiven but approved and justified it; but
in the way in which it now stands, it is evidently a punishment by loss of
privilege, inflicted on those, who go into the office of the ministry; for
which, perhaps, the gentlemen of Georgia may have good reasons, though I have
not been able to discover them.

But besides the uncertainty of the principle on which this resolution is
founded, there seems to me much uncertainty as to the meaning of it. How are
we to determine who is or is not a clergyman? Is he only a clergyman who has
received ordination from those who have derived the right by an uninterrupted
succession from the apostles? Or is he also a clergyman, who is set apart
by the imposition of hands of a body of other clergymen, by joint authority?
Or is he also a clergyman who is set a part by the church members of his own
society, without any imposition of hands at all? Or is he also a clergyman
who has exhorted in a Methodist society, or spoken in a Quaker meeting, or
any other religious assembly met for public worship? There are still greater
difficulties behind: Is the clerical character indelible? There are some who
have been ordained who occasionally perform some clerical functions, but have
no pastoral charge at all. There are some who finding public speaking injurious
to health, or from other reasons easily conceived, have resigned their pastoral
charge, and wholly discontinued all acts and exercises of that kind; and there
are some, particularly in New England, who having exercised the clerical office
some time, and finding it less suitable to their talents than they apprehended,
have voluntarily relinquished it, and taken to some other profession, as law,
physic, or merchandize[sic]–Do these all continue clergymen, or do they cease
to be clergymen, and by that cessation return to, or recover the honorable
privileges of laymen?

I cannot help thinking that these difficulties are very considerable, and
may occasion much litigation, if the article of the constitution stands in
the loose, ambiguous form in which it now appears; and therefore I would recommend
the following alterations, which I think will make every thing definite and
unexceptionable.

“No clergyman, of any denomination, shall be capable of being elected
a member of the Senate or House of Representatives, because {here insert
the grounds of offensive disqualification, which I have not been able to
discover} Provided always, and it is the true intent and meaning of this
part of the constitution, that if at any time he shall be completely deprived
of the clerical character by those by whom he was invested with it, as by
deposition for cursing and swearing, drunkenness or uncleanness, he shall
then be fully restored to all the privileges of a free citizen; his offence
shall no more be remembered against him; but he may be chosen either to
the Senate or House of Representatives, and shall be treated with all the
respect due to his brethren, the other members of Assembly.”

Where, oh where are there men and women like THIS today?!!

We are today governed by the most vile, corrupt, vulgar, depraved, degenerate, ungodly, immoral, un-American, and ANTI-American scum imaginable!! America has NO ONE remotely close to these wise, honorable men of character and impeccable morals, NONE.

LET’S refresh our memory with what but a few said once again:

Charles Finney

[T]he time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent
ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. . . . Christians have been
exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act
differently. . . . Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see
what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it – and He will bless
or curse this nation according to the course they [Christians] take [in politics].

[Charles G. Finney, Lectures on Revivals of Religion (New York:
Fleming H. Revell Company, 1868), Lecture XV, pp. 281-282.]

 

Francis Grimke

If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will . . . be . . .
from inward corruption – from the disregard of right principles . . . from
losing sight of the fact that “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but that sin
is a reproach to any people” [Proverbs 14:34]. . . .[T]he secession of the
Southern States in 1860 was a small matter with the secession of the Union
itself from the great principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence,
in the Golden Rule, in the Ten Commandments, in the Sermon on the Mount. Unless
we hold, and hold firmly to these great fundamental principles of righteousness,
. . . our Union . . . will be “only a covenant with death and an agreement
with hell.”

Founders: Liberalism=Treason

Image result for signing of the constitution

I know some are reading this and thinking…

“Sheesh! saying that America’s Founding Fathers would think Liberalism=Treason is a stretch don’t you think?”

No.

Not really.

Not a “stretch” at all.

Consider but merely two points of Liberalism: taxation and government regulation, or what America’s Founders would call tyranny and meddling.

When we do a (very) quick study of WHY people came TO America in the first place we find these reasons, listed in order of importance:

  1. CHRISTIAN FREEDOM/LIBERTY,
  2. MORAL, ETHICAL, CULTURAL FREEDOM/LIBERTY,
  3. FREEDOM/LIBERTY FROM OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT AND TAXATION.

The unifying thread was, and IS, Freedom and Liberty.

The Pilgrims are an example of all three, as were the Puritans.

The Pilgrims objected to England trying to FORCE them into The State Church, Reasons #1 & #3. So The Pilgrims fled Britain to The Netherlands where there was more Christian Liberty. But the the language and culture were far different, and they began to see how it was affecting, even changing their children, Reason #2.

So, The Pilgrims left The Netherlands for America and arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts November 11, 1620 after a voyage of 66 days.

Many would follow. Many for one, two, or, as The Pilgrims, all three above mentioned reasons. But all for Freedom and Liberty.

BUT as time went on the relatively free colonies began to see Britain raise taxes on them:

Great Britain found itself deep in debt following its victory over France in the French and Indian War. As a result, it enacted the Sugar Act of 1764, the Stamp Act of 1765, the Townshend Acts of 1767 and other measures aimed at raising funds from its 13 American colonies. Taxes remained orders of magnitude higher in Great Britain than across the pond. But the colonists fiercely resisted them anyway, protesting against “taxation without representation” and eventually taking up arms.

In the 1765 Stamp Act there were as many as 72 taxes levied in and on the Colonists.

Though some argue that taxation in the colonies was LOWER than in Britain it was to ESCAPE the oppression of taxation and government regulation that brought them to America in the first place.

So King George’s III taxes, and subsequent government regulation, including quartering HIS soldiers in Colonists homes, whether they wanted them or not, was the “spark to the powder keg” that led directly TO The American Revolutionary War. 

America’s Founders opposed “taxation without representation”, “the tyranny of taxation”, and the “deaf ears of those in government” to the extent they fought an 8 year war against THE MIGHTIEST POWER ON EARTH over taxes that cost over 25,000 American lives…oh, and won.

When one reads and studies the words and lives of America’s Founders they soon will find that they would have revolted AGAINST Washington D.C. in 1913 with the tyrannical, Marxist inspired, Progressive Income Tax. America’s Founders were dead set AGAINST any and ALL DIRECT taxes and taxation, including an Income Tax, especially a Progressive one, the more you earn the more you’re taxed.

The early colonists did not flee Europe to pay high taxes in the New World.

Reflecting the values of the day, a prominent nineteenth-century historian, Richard T. Ely, wrote that “one of the things against which our forefathers in England and in the American colonies contended was not against oppressive taxation, but against the payment of any taxes at all” (emphasis added).Those who braved the hardship of travel across the Atlantic and who tamed a wilderness on their own did not relish paying taxes to any government.

What we TODAY call an “annoyance” (some a minor annoyance) America’s Founders understood was the “foot in the door” to tyranny. 

They saw, experienced, and KNEW all to well that any government that TAKE BY FORCE OF LAW, AND BY POLICE OR MILITARY IF NEEDED, what anyone earns and turn around and “give” it away to any one else in the form of welfare, entitlements, housing, food, and, yes, HEALTH-CARE and Education was FIRST an act of TYRANNY in the taking, and an act of Bribery and Corruption in the giving. Witness these quotes from America’s Founding Fathers:

Thomas Jefferson:

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Alexander Hamilton:

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare… The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.

John Adams:

The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.

James Madison:

As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.

It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated.

There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

George Washington:

No taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant.

The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, ’till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all.

[W]e ought to deprecate the hazard attending ardent and susceptible minds, from being too strongly, and too early prepossessed in favor of other political systems, before they are capable of appreciating their own.

Benjamin Franklin:

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

No nation was ever ruined by trade, even seemingly the most disadvantageous.

[NOTE: Trump and ALL “fair trade”/Pro-Tariff” Liberals would do well to heed Franklin’s admonition in that final line:

No nation was ever ruined by trade, even seemingly the most disadvantageous.

HOW Did America CHANGE so drastically, and for the worse, choosing what America’s Founders KNEW was tyranny and led to slavery and poverty?

The answer is found in their wise observations and words, read this again:

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

-James Madison, author of many of The Federalist Papers, helped write the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and 4th President of the United States of America.

THERE IT IS.

Let’s look at just some of those “gradual and silent encroachments of those in power”:

  1. 1913-1916, WOODROW WILSON LED THE U.S. INTO THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK, UNCONSTITUTIONALLY TAKING FROM CONGRESS ONE OF THEIR ENUMERATED, CONSTITUTIONAL DUTIES*; THEN INSTITUTED THE PROGRESSIVE INCOME TAX (WHICH IS MARXIST), AND THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE TO ENFORCE AND COLLECT IT,
  2. WITH THE NEW INFLUX OF REVENUE INTO THE FEDERAL COFFERS IT WASN’T LONG UNTIL LIBERALS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT; HOOVER, WHO WAS A FORE-RUNNER OF TODAY’S R.I.N.O./LIBERAL, AND, OF COURSE, FDR, A DEMOCRAT/SOCIALIST/GLOBALIST, KEPT RAISING THE RATES AND CREATING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND BUREAUCRACIES TO REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH, THEREBY BUYING VOTES, FAVORS, AND POWER,
  3. THIS PATTERN HAS CONTINUED SINCE 1913. WITH EVERY CRISIS (WAR, FLOODS, FIRES, NATURAL DISASTERS,DEPRESSION, RECESSION, INFLATION, DEFLATION, “JUST BECAUSE”…) TAXES “NEEDED” TO GO UP, AND GOVERNMENT “MUST SWIFTLY INTERVENE”…NEVER MIND THAT BETWEEN THE FREE MARKET/PRIVATE SECTOR AND GOVERNMENT THAT GOVERNMENT ALWAYS DOES IT WORST, SLOWEST, AND MOST COSTLY, 
  4. OTHER SIGNIFICANT INSTANCES OF LIBERAL POWER GRABS, OPPRESSION, AND TYRANNY WERE: A] THE MINIMUM WAGE, WAGE AND PRICE FREEZES UNDER NIXON, B] THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION UNDER CARTER, C] WARS AS COVER FOR SCANDALS UNDER CLINTON, D] OBAMA-CARE AND THE SPYING AND AUDITING OF CONSERVATIVES AND CHRISTIANS UNDER OBAMA, D] THE TARIFFS, AND DAILY CHAOS TO COVER FOR SCANDALS OF TRUMP,
  5. AND QUITE LIKELY THE MOST EGREGIOUS AND SERIOUS LIBERAL TYRANNICAL ACT IS WHEN A COURT OF A MERE 9 PEOPLE LISTENED TO ONLY ONE PERSON AND TOLD AN ENTIRE NATION THAT GOD, THE BIBLE, PRAYER, JESUS, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE 23RD PSALM, THE LORD’S PRAYER, THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, ET AL WAS “OFFENSIVE” AND, HENCE BANNED AND PROHIBITED FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS, LANDS, BUILDINGS AND CEREMONIES.

THAT IS IT.

Right there in a nut-shell is why America’s Founding Fathers would have back in 1913:

  1. EITHER NULLIFIED OR ABOLISHED THE FEDERAL RESERVE, IRS, AND INCOME TAX, AND ALL SUBSEQUENT UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS AND COURT RULINGS, OR
  2. SECEDED FROM SUCH A CORRUPT, TYRANNICAL, BASTARDISED UNION, OR
  3. FOUGHT A 2ND REVOLUTION.

There is NO way they would have put up with 1913-1916, let alone all the long train of abuses and corruptions that have since followed!!

We’ve grown accustomed to this. Why? How? Because we grew up in this and until we search, study and research OUR OWN HISTORY AND HERITAGE we assume that THIS oppression and tyranny is “normal”.

Matter of fact, I know of millions who read this article and say “This is not tyranny nor oppression.”

They say that because they either do NOT know what REAL LIBERTY AND FREEDOM ARE, or because they are deluded into believing the Liberal lies as “truth”, OR because they themselves benefit and thereby propagate the lie to continue the gravy train of power and corruption that their bribery, bullying, and blackmailing have achieved for them. They got it. They control it. And they don’t want to lose it- EVER.

This is NOT merely a matter of “a difference in political views” from two opposing groups, both patriots!

This is NOT merely two “Patriotic ways to solve a problem”!

NO!

One, Conservatism, is rooted firmly IN Founding, Constitutional Principles, values, and views.

The other, Liberalism, is anti-Constitutional, anti-Liberty, un-American, tyranny, and YES, TREASON!

If you’re still not convinced read this and all attendant links again. Do some research on your own…if you still are not convinced that Liberalism=Treason then it’s because you are NOT an honest seeker of the truth.

UNTIL ONE REALLY BEGINS TO DIG INTO THE TRUE HERITAGE AND HISTORY OF AMERICA THEY WILL CONTINUE TO THINK THIS LONG TRAIN OF LIBERAL ABUSES AND CORRUPTION IS “NORMAL”…EVEN PREFERRED IN CONTRAST TO BEING INDEPENDENT, FREE, AND RESPONSIBLE FOR THEMSELVES. 

Yes. On but these two point alone, taxation and government regulation, to America’s Founding Fathers: LIBERALISM=TREASON.

This is NOT a clouded point that America’s Founders were silent or confusing on.

No.

They were clear.

Precise.

Consistent.

And passionate about The Founding Principles.

So much so they fought TWO wars against the same major, world power to get and keep their freedom and liberty.
