Biden’s Spending Spree

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 23, 2021 by andelino

Despite “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden’s reassurances that rising prices are a transitory effect of reopening the economy after Covid-19 lockdowns, more and more people are growing concerned about inflation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the consumer price index had risen 5.4 percent over the past 12 months, the most significant jump since the Great Recession. And according to John Williams of shadowstats.com, if inflation were still calculated the way it was back in 1980, the official inflation rate over the past 12 months would be well into the double digits, about 13 percent.

During a press conference, Biden addressed inflation concerns, saying Congress must pass his sweeping economic plan to tamp down rising consumer prices. “If we make prudent, multiyear investments in better roads, bridges, transit systems and high-speed Internet, a modern, resilient electric grid, here’s what will happen: It breaks up the bottlenecks in our economy,” he said. “These steps will enhance our productivity, raising wages without raising prices. That won’t increase inflation; it’ll take the pressure off of inflation.”

This strange comment reveals that Biden does not know much about economics. His economic plan includes more than $500 billion in new infrastructure spending and a $3.5 trillion spending plan to expand the government-funded safety net. This plan is not going to be paid for with taxpayer dollars primarily. Instead, it is going to be paid for with $3 trillion in deficit spending. Elementary-level mathematics teaches that deficit spending creates inflation by diluting the money supply. Suggesting that America can spend its way out of an inflation crisis goes against the most basic mathematics concepts.

John Catsimatidis, the billionaire owner of supermarket chain Gristedes, understands these facts and expects an annualized inflation rate of 6 percent by October. He is also predicting that grocery stores will have no choice but to pass on costs to their customers and make food more expensive. Larry Summers, a senior United States Treasury Department official throughout the Clinton administration, predicts even more severe consequences.

Since February, Summers has infuriated his fellow Democrats by saying that Biden’s big-spending plan would create an inflation spike. In an interview with the Financial Times in May, Summers noted that the Biden administration is pursuing “the least responsible fiscal macroeconomic policy we’ve had for the last 40 years. We’re seeing an episode that I think differs both quantitatively and qualitatively from anything since Paul Volcker’s days at the Fed, and it stands to reason that would lead to significant changes in expectations.”

In other words, the anti-inflationary credibility the Federal Reserve has worked hard to establish after it ruined its reputation during the Carter administration is being destroyed. Summers predicts that there is a 1 in 3 chance that the kind of high inflation that the U.S. suffered during the Carter administration will return. He also expects a 1 in 3 chance that the Federal Reserve will have to quickly hike interest rates in response to inflation, stifling price increases, and plunging the economy into a recession.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell thanked Summers for standing against his party and warning about the dangers of hyperinflation. But the Biden administration does not appear to be changing course.

The Congressional Budget Office predicts trillion-dollar-deficits as far as the eye can see. The dollar’s value will continue to erode until nations abandon it as the world reserve currency. Once foreign governments stop lending it money, the U.S. will be forced to rely solely on money printing to finance its deficit spending, or it will be forced to slash discretionary programs, like defense spending, drastically. The first option would lead to hyperinflation. The second option would leave the nation unable to defend itself from foreign attacks.

Forty years ago, the late Herbert W. Armstrong wrote “What’s Happening to the U.S. Standard of Living—and Why?” This article addressed many of the economic problems America was suffering during the 1970s. Few people heeded his warning at the time, and most people forgot about it once the Reagan administration stabilized the economy. Yet this article addressed the root causes behind America’s economic decline. Mr. Armstrong explained that God blessed America with the highest per capita income on the planet because of a promise He made to Abraham, and he warned that God would take away America’s blessing if it rebelled against Him.

“What have we done with these multitudes of national and individual blessings which actually were the gift of the living God?” he asked. “God did not promise to continue the blessings if we rebelled. We have been rebellious and unwilling to yield to our God and His ways which would have guaranteed lasting peace and prosperity. We have become arrogant and selfish. We have polluted the fertile lands the living God gave us. We have polluted the air, the rivers, lakes, and oceans. We have polluted our own minds and those of our children—teaching the anti-God fable of evolution. We have given public acceptance to the misnamed ‘new morality,’ which is gross immorality! We have given public acceptance to homosexuality, premarital sex and perversion. We have polluted the sacred institution of marriage, and through a constantly increasing divorce rate, we have started on a course of destroying the home and family relationship—the foundation of any stable society. We have filled our lands with crime—with corruption in high places—with violence.”

Most of these sins are much more prevalent in America today than they were 45 years ago.

America’s leaders think they can solve our economic woes simply by spending more money. But Joe Biden’s spending spree will not tamp down inflation or increase wages but hurt your wallet. It will only exacerbate the problems until the American people see the need to yield to God and His ways, which guarantee lasting peace and prosperity!

Infrastructure Deal

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2021 by andelino

The United States Senate passed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal. The 2,700-page bill had the backing of 19 Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The group voted to end the debate on the bill early to allow quicker passage.

The Republican RINO’s supporting the bill are claiming a victory, as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a greatly reduced version of the original $3.5 trillion budget proposed by the Biden administration. Republican supporters claim Biden’s plans for “human infrastructure” spending to expand climate change actions, education, child care and Medicare benefits are mostly gone from the bill. But the Democrats are rushing the bill through the Senate because this is only the first step in their plan to spend trillions of dollars.

Republican Sen. Kevin Cramer indicated that only $450 billion is being spent on “hard” infrastructure, like roads and bridges. The other $800 billion is being spent on climate change initiatives, clean energy research, massive government expansion into the energy network, and sweeping government regulations against motor vehicles. The bill is actually a Trojan horse for the agenda of the radical left to transform America.

The details of the bill reveal that the Infrastructure Deal is deceptive. Despite claiming to be bipartisan, key Republican supporters of the bill happen to have funding for special projects in their districts, such as $50 billion for a dam in Sen. Mitt Romney’s district and money to repair the Alaska Highway in Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s district.

Below are some highlights from the pending bill:

  • $73 billion to move from fossil fuels to clean energy
  • $21 billion for environmental remediation
  • $7.5 billion in electric charger infrastructure; priority given to rural and low-income areas
  • $5 billion for zero- to low-emission buses and $5 billion for adoption of zero- to low-emission buses
  • $1 billion for clean hydrogen electrolysis program
  • $8 billion for regional clean hydrogen hubs (network of hydrogen producers and consumers)
  • $3.2 billion for electric battery development
  • $3.2 billion for electric battery recycling
  • $3.5 billion on carbon capturing
  • $2 million for integrating solar, wind and hydro power.

The bill includes sections on the “promotion of women in the trucking workforce,” designing motor vehicles to measure blood alcohol levels before driving, and safety research on limousines.

Although many of Joe Biden’s original climate change and social programs were not included, the Republicans compromised enough to allow billions for programs resembling the Green New Deal. It is the first trillion-dollar step toward radically transforming the United States’ economy. The Wall Street Journal called it “a major down payment on President Biden’s Green New Deal.”

President Donald Trump issued a statement, saying: “This is not an infrastructure bill; this is the beginning of the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal was radical legislation put forward by “Barmaid” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2019 that aimed to make the U.S. economy 100 percent reliant on “clean” energy, eliminate poverty, change the diet of Americans to reduce the number of cows, and implement more public ownership of companies. The idea of the bill was favored by many radical liberals but rejected by conservative Republicans, especially by President Trump.

The Green New Deal would mean the collapse of many of the key industries that give the U.S. its economic power. It would also commit America to relying on unproved and unreliable clean energy technology. The Green New Deal was shrouded in climate change language, but was a bid to legislate the communist transformation of America. That is the real goal of the radical left and their climate change agenda.

Such a piece of legislation would be very difficult to pass transparently. Instead, radical lawmakers hide the agenda into other legislation, such as in the latest Infrastructure Act. This is hardly new: Caliph Barack Obama stuffed $90 billion of investment in clean energy into the 2009 stimulus act. It is easy to hide such policies when the legal document is thousands of pages long and Congress votes on it before even reading through the contents.

Billions of dollars are about to be authorized to begin moving this radical agenda forward. But the Infrastructure Deal is actually a Trojan horse for far worse legislation. The bill is paving the way for the passing of the Democrats’ radical $3.5 billion infrastructure plan.

The bipartisan infrastructure bill is part one of a two-phase plan to invest trillions of dollars to transform America. The Democrats made the infrastructure bill “bipartisan” and were willing to “compromise” to smooth the way for phase two, which does not require Republican approval.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer intends to pass the rest of the $3.5 trillion through a process called reconciliation. Using reconciliation would allow the Democrats to pass the budget without needing the 60 Senate votes that are normally required. Even the filibuster cannot stop reconciliation.

This $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” program devised by the Biden administration was agreed upon in a closed-door negotiation between the White House and the Democratic budget committee. CNBC reported that the agreement had the following:

  • Create a national comprehensive paid family-and-medical-leave program.
  • Fund free universal preschool for all 3- and 4-year-olds.
  • Fund free community college for all students, expand the total amount of Pell Grants, and increase the maximum individual award.
  • Expand access to the summer EBT program, which helps some low-income families with children buy food outside the school year.
  • Extend the $1.9 trillion covid stimulus plan’s provision lowering health insurance premiums for those who buy coverage on their own.
  • Extend the child tax credit expansion that was included in the covid relief bill.

The bill also contains money for clean energy programs, many of which were cut from the bipartisan infrastructure deal during earlier negotiations with Republicans.

These include tax incentives for clean energy and electric vehicles, a Civilian Climate Corps program for young people and energy-efficient building weatherization and electrification projects.

The details of how long the programs will last, and how many billions will be allocated to each program, have not yet been released. But based on how glutted the infrastructure bill was with climate change programs, this agreement may well bring out part two of the Green New Deal. It threatens to massively expand dependence on government social programs and aggressively push for the transformation of the American economy from fossil fuels to “clean energy.”

This is the closest the radical left has gotten to achieving its goal of transforming America’s economy. Ultimately, only 8.9 percent, or $450 billion out of $4.7 trillion, will go to roads, bridges and ports.

Then there is the problem on how to fund this radical agenda. Only $650 billion is pre-approved funds. The rest will need to be financed somehow. One of the ideas by “Fraud-In-Chief”  Biden is to raise corporate income tax from 21 percent to 28 percent.

Other methods include gathering unused covid relief money, using the money generated by the various programs, and asking the Internal Revenue Service to be more strict in enforcing tax laws. However, none of these ideas come close to raising $4 trillion.

In reality it will be financed through higher taxes, or the government will need to print money to fund its own budget.

Dark Money

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on May 14, 2021 by andelino

Radical Democrats have an ambitious plan for fundamentally transforming the United States of America. They want to pass an Equality Act that targets the Bible with provisions that erase any legal allowance for differences between men and women.

They want to pass a Green New Deal that would convert the nation into a Venezuela-style socialist state by nationalizing the energy and health-care industries in the name of environmentalism. They want to pass gun control legislation that would deprive law-abiding citizens of their constitutional right to defend themselves.

And they want to pass a For the People Act making it possible for progressives to steal every future American election. Yet the Democrats’ agenda is being hindered by a senatorial procedure called the filibuster.

The filibuster permits a senator to prevent a measure from being brought to a vote by speaking for as long as he wants on any topic. Thus, Republicans can filibuster any proposal they think is too radical, and the only way to stop them is for 60 out of 100 senators to vote to bring the filibuster to a close.

But if Democrats could get rid of the filibuster, they could pass any legislation they want. Both parties’ control 50 senate seats, so Vice President Kamala Harris would be the tiebreaker.

This is why Donald Trump warned Republicans that abolishing the filibuster would be disastrous. During an interview on “The Truth With Lisa Boothe,” he discussed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying, “Look, he’s hanging by a thread right now with respect to the filibuster. If they get rid of the filibuster, if they knock it out, it will be catastrophic for the Republican Party.”

Knocking out the filibuster is exactly what progressive activists are trying to do. Business records show that one of the radical left’s most powerful “dark money” networks is leading a campaign against the Senate filibuster. The Fix Our Senate campaign is steering a coalition of 60 progressive groups to eliminate the filibuster, and it is doing it with money from some of the nation’s wealthiest liberal donors.

This campaign is a project of the “Sixteen Thirty Fund”, which is a nonprofit incubator managed by Arabella Advisors—a secretive donor club founded by Clinton administration alumni and dedicated to financing a myriad of progressive causes.

Fix Our Senate and the Sixteen Thirty Fund are powerful tools for radical leftists because they are nonprofit organizations that do not have to disclose their donors or file tax forms that would expose their financial activity.

Instead, they use “dark money” to influence public policy without telling voters who is paying them. Financial records show that the Sixteen Thirty Fund spent over $61 million last year pushing for sweeping gun control measures, radical environmental policies, socialized medicine, open borders, and other causes, but its donor list remains anonymous.

“Arabella Advisors” is a for-profit company that advises liberal dark money networks on where their money can be used most effectively. It manages over $700 million in dark money each year.

In addition to financing policy changes, like ending the filibuster, liberal dark money networks also finance political campaigns. A report from Bloomberg News reveals that Joe Biden benefited from a record-breaking amount of donations from anonymous donors.

His campaign received $145 million in dark money donations. That tops the $113 million received by Republican nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.

During the 2020 elections, Democrats received more than $514 million in dark money, over double what Republicans received. Some have called Biden the nation’s “first dark money president.”

This should concern anyone who believes in constitutional government. Former congressional aide Mike Lofgren wrote in 2016 that the U.S. was being taken over by shadow government.

“There is the visible United States government, situated in imposing neoclassical buildings around the Mall in Washington, D.C., and there is another, more shadowy and indefinable government that is not explained in Civics 101 or observable to tourists at the White House or the Capitol,” he writes in the Deep State.

“The former is the tip of an iceberg that is theoretically controllable via elections. The subsurface part of the iceberg operates on its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power. Washington is the most important node of the deep state, but it is not the only one. Invisible threads of money and ambition connect the town to other nodes. One is Wall Street, which supplies the cash that keeps the political machine quiescent and operating as a diversionary puppet show.”

The “dark money” networks that helped pave Joe Biden’s path to the White House are among the “invisible threads of money and ambition that connect the town to other nodes” in Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and other liberal power centers.

The shadowy figures who donate to these networks are now cashing in on their investment and pushing Biden to nominate “dark money” appointees and enact radical policies that a majority of Americans do not want.

You need to understand the inner workings of this network and the dark spirit that empowers it! Lofgren explains how the different nodes of the deep state operate to subvert America’s constitutional form of government, but he does not adequately explain the root cause behind why the deep state exists.

Barack Obama “filled America’s law enforcement agencies with treasonous agents” and “led what is known as the ‘deep state.’” Then, after explaining that Obama is the real head of the deep state, he explained why the deep state exists:

“God has blessed America like no other nation. And the devil wants to destroy America like no other nation! Satan is marshaling every tool and weapon he can to wreck this nation, and he is having alarming success! This evil spiritual power is influencing the radical left! Most Republicans don’t realize what they are dealing with: people who are absolutely committed to destroying the government of this land!”

The networks pushing to abolish the filibuster are a tool of the “deep state” to absolutely destroy the government of this land by handicapping constitutional conservatives so they can no longer hinder its agenda.

Donald Trump said this would be “catastrophic for the Republican Party,” but it would really be catastrophic for the whole nation.

Swamp Turtle McConnell

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on February 21, 2021 by andelino

We on the conservative Right are quick to castigate “The Swamp” and the “Deep State” in Washington, DC, and rightly so. Neither serve the American people, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, whatever denomination.

But just under the indignation is a reluctant acceptance. We love to complain but when the rubber hits the road, we never really do anything about it.

How many times have you complained about Congress only to defend your own Congress creature? I know I have done it. And how many times has your party begged for money from you so they can “target” so-and-so on the other side in the next election?

Today, I am taking square aim at one of our own, Mitch McConnell, not to “remove” him from office, no I will not acquiesce to the “cancel culture” lunacy, but to “demote” him from leadership.

I am doing so because he does not serve the “people”, he does not serve the “party”, he just serves “himself” and his lust for “power and control.”

Consider this statement, made by a Republican in leadership in the US Senate just moments after former-President Trump was “acquitted” for a second time at an impeachment trial that again was based on nothing:

Swamp Turtle Mitch McConnell.

“There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of January 6th. No question about it. The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president. The leader of the free world cannot spend weeks thundering that shadowy forces are stealing our country and then feign surprise when people believe him and do reckless things.”

These are the words of the highest-ranking Republican in Washington, DC, currently, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). And more “inaccurate” and “unproductive” they could not be.

First and foremost, I reject that there was no “chicanery” in the 2020 General Election.

We had a “cowardly” US Supreme Court that “refused” to hear seminal cases in whether states whose executive branches formulated “election laws” in fact “violated” the US Constitution, as the Constitution vests that power solely with the state legislatures.

We had routine “violations” of election law in several key states – and within those states critical urban areas – that saw poll watchers and credentialed Republican election officials tantamount to being forcefully “excluded” from the ballot counting process.

And in those same battleground states, we saw ballot counting stop, poll workers released from duty, and then counting begin again with anointed skeleton crews.

All of these instances, all of these points, are valid complaints that McConnell should have been screaming about in real time. But what did we hear? A low-toned reluctant complaint that was drown out by just about any other audible sound on the planet.

The man who should have been leading the charge for the Republican rank-and-file was sitting on his hands, too concerned with retaining his own seat and, in fact, riding on President Trump’s accomplishment coattails to do so.

McConnell failed to hold the majority in the US Senate during the 2020 General Election.

McConnell single-handedly lost the two “run-off races” in Georgia with his blunder about not wanting to pass a $2,000 COVID relief package. That blunder – and make no mistake, it was a colossal blunder – cost the Republicans control of the Senate and sentenced the American people to two years of “one-party rule” at the hand of the most totalitarian, fascist administration ever to sit in the Oval Office.

And how do Republicans in Washington, DC, punish McConnell “for his failures, for his disloyalty, for his selfish exploitation” of his elected position?

They re-elect him t o leadership, this time as Senate Minority Leader. How stupid are the Senate Republicans to do this? I have to say abundantly stupid.

McConnell wasn’t done with his caustic, unproductive screed, a screed that, mind you, offended 75 + million voters: “President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he’s in office. He didn’t get away with anything yet.”

Sounds as though he wants an investigation, a prosecution. It certainly sounds like he will join with Democrats should they try to invoke the 14th Amendment against the former-President.

A person who holds these positions and who has presided over the litany of failures, such as McConnell has, who has effectively “forced” the Republican Party to be subservient to a group of people who actually “hate” the United States, well, that person – Mitch McConnell – should not be in a position of leadership, and most definitely not the Senate Minority Leader.

It is time for Senate Republicans to call an emergency meeting and “remove” McConnell from leadership. It is time for the “go along to get along”, “it’s my turn” Republican apparatus to be “destroyed” and for a new era of constitutionally minded, limited government Republicans to talk the helm.

McConnell’s day has long passed. His devotion to the swamp is proof of that.

Double Chin McConnell

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on February 18, 2021 by andelino

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political “leaders” like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality, has rapidly driven him from Majority Leader to Minority Leader, and it will only get worse.

The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle—they’ve never had it so good—and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s “Beltway First” agenda or Biden’s “America Last.”

In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting President in history, almost 75,000,000. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Nancy Pelosi her job. Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of the 98 partisan legislative chambers, and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue.

And in “Mitch’s Senate,” over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone—and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600. How does that work? It became the Democrats’ principal advertisement, and a big winner for them it was.

McConnell then put himself, one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, into the advertisements. Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race.

It was a complete election disaster in Georgia, and certain other swing states. McConnell did nothing, and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system into the future. He doesn’t have what it takes, never did, and never will.

My only regret is that “double chin” McConnell “begged” for my strong support and endorsement before the great people of Kentucky in the 2020 election, and I gave it to him. He went from one point down to 20 points up, and won. How quickly he forgets.

Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost, and lost badly. Now, his numbers are lower than ever before, he is destroying the Republican side of the Senate, and in so doing, seriously hurting our Country.

Likewise, McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings. He does nothing on this tremendous economic and military threat.

Mitch is a “dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack,” and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse “Making America Great Again” and our policy of “America First.” We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.

Prior to the pandemic, we produced the greatest economy and jobs numbers in the history of our Country, and likewise, our economic recovery after Covid was the best in the world. We cut taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our Vets, became energy independent, built the wall and stopped the massive inflow of illegal’s into our Country, and so much more.

And now, illegal’s are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up, and we will no longer be energy independent.

This is a big moment for our country, and we cannot let it pass by using third-rate “leaders” to dictate our future!

Rest assured, President Donald Trump has no plans to go gentle into that good night.

Nancy Pelosi’s Coup D’état

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 26, 2021 by andelino

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was leading a “coup d’état” against the United States government.

She called Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley to ask what she could do to prevent President Donald Trump from accessing “nuclear launch codes.” Then she attempted to coax Vice President Mike Pence into invoking the “25th Amendment” to have President Trump removed from office. When neither effort succeeded, she introduced “articles of impeachment” to Congress.

Why is the “Ice Cream Queen” so desperate to remove President Trump from office if he is going to be gone from the White House in a few days?

The impeachment articles introduced to Congress had more than 200 Democratic co-sponsors. They charged President Trump with “incitement of insurrection,” saying that he “gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government” by calling on his supporters to stage a “Make America Great Again Rally” in Washington, D.C.

Even though the president condemned the ”violence” at this rally and reaffirmed that the Republican Party is the “party of law and order,” Democratic lawmakers still plan to hold an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives.

Even liberal law professor Jonathan Turley says this snap impeachment is “unconstitutional.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the Senate would not have time to “hold a trial” until after the president has left office. So why hold the vote?

Some Democrats are even talking about impeaching President Trump after he has left office, which probably isn’t even possible. But that does not matter to the “radical left.” The rules, the Constitution, the law—none of that matters. Pelosi even called the military to see if she could trigger a “military coup d’état.”

So who are the real “authoritarians” in America? Who are the “tyrants” today?

Radio personality Rush Limbaugh says the real reason Pelosi and the Democratic Party are unwilling to wait for President Trump to leave is that they are terrified he will expose their political corruption by declassifying confidential information. “Pelosi has called the military and put them on standby in case Trump launches the nuke codes. Whom are we going to nuke?” Limbaugh said last Friday.

“What are they terrified of? They are terrified that Trump is going to unleash classified documents. You know he has a bevy of them, folks. He has classified documents about the hoax, the four-year coup. There are all kinds of people who broke the law; all kinds of people who are quaking in their boots. They are worried silly that Trump is going to unleash some of these classified documents.”

 Acting DHS Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested more “National Guards” be sent to Washington, D.C., even requesting “crew-manned machine guns” – a sharp contrast between how she reacted when President Trump wanted to use the military to deal with the deadly violence from nationwide Black Lives Matter/Antifa protests.

https://www.mrctv.org/embed/556934

Why did Pelosi request them? Was she planning to shoot Trump supporters en masse? And wasn’t she afraid she’s hit the Antifa gangsters stirring up trouble?

MacCallum pointed out that in D.C. right now there is a military presence several times the number that are in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“A division. You have a division,” Cuccinelli said, “and the last up of thousands of these troops was requested by the speaker through the Capitol Police. She even wanted crew-manned machine guns in Washington. That was rejected. There’s simply no use for that in a security arrangement for a civilian undertaking. So some of this has gone beyond any legitimate security need.”

Apparently, Democrats want to show Americans that they will kill anyone on the right who acts up. They have the military and the weapons. Currently, they are cleansing the military of conservatives.

Pelosi is in a state of Panic. What seems to be the talk running around is that there is a lot of “incriminating evidence” on her laptop that was taken. She seems to be grandstanding to try to position herself that any “allegations that might surface” are really retaliation for her impeachment.

What at least seems very clear is that Trump supporters were NOT the only people in the building. They seem to have been the cover for “Antifa” operations. In fact, there was a deliberate free reign to allow these ops to get about 15 laptops using the Trump supporters to hide their actions. Lawmakers were calling the police and they simply waited before responding.

Pelosi’s frantic rush to impeach a president is absurd. When people were pleading for help and the Black Lives Matter/Antifa groups were burning down buildings and looting, Pelosi had no problem allowing that to happen.

Perhaps she should look at her polls. The trust in Congress has crashed since she took the speaker’s post. Even a used car salesman is trusted more than her.

In a 60 Minutes interview Pelosi admitted that a significant motivation for President Trump’s impeachment is “to eliminate any chance he has of being elected again.”

The Democrats fear Donald Trump because he exposes them. They want weak-willed Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Ben Sasse who will stand by and let them destroy the Constitution.

We are witnessing the most astonishing attack on “free speech” in American history. President Trump and tens of thousands of his supporters have been “banned” from social media. Now the Washington establishment is doubling down in its efforts to ensure that the president cannot “expose” any more of their corruption.

Pelosi is “pro-abortion” and “pro-homosexual marriage”; she wants to allocate federal spending for stem-cell research, which involves experimenting on unborn babies. Democrats are excited by the fact that endorsements of “San Francisco values” now echo through Washington’s halls.

Is this what America needs? What did God think of these elections? This election marks the final chapter for the United States. We mourn to see America’s downfall. We are about to see a tsunami of problems sweep over the world!

The radical-leftist “takeover” has advanced to the point where liberals can “steal elections” and then “silence” anyone who dares “criticize” them for it. If these people get full control, they will utterly “destroy” America’s constitutional republic.

America today is suffering grievous affliction. There is no one left who can help the nation—no one in Congress, no one in the courts, and no one in the Biden administration.

Impeached Again!

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on January 16, 2021 by andelino

House Democrats again voted to “impeach” President Trump, this time with the help of a few Republicans who hope the move will “rid” the GOP of Trump forever. It won’t.

Last time, it was a phone call to Ukraine. This time, it was Trump’s unwillingness to ignore “election fraud” and a speech where he told protesters to do their protesting “peacefully.” Whatever…

Democrats have turned impeachment into a “joke.” Before long, two impeachments in a single administration will be surpassed as Democrats make it an “annual event” for any Republican president.

It also lessens the importance of the penalty when no “conviction” occurs and, as it stands, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has no interest in taking up the “impeachment trial” until after President-elect Biden is sworn in.

If Democrats want to push for a conviction, “Sniffy” Joe Biden’s agenda is going to “take a back seat.”

In reality, this was about one thing: “taking Trump and the ‘Make America First Again’ movement out of the political conversation forever.”

If they can get the Senate to convict the president of “incitement of insurrection”, they plan to bar him from office for all time. They do not want to deal with a Trump 2024 campaign and they hope to push him and his ideas so far from the political circus that no one pays him any mind in the elections next year.

Yup, 13 months until the first caucus. “American National Political Party” anyone?

Exorcising Trump from American politics is a goal for Democrats and old-guard Republicans like McConnell, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, etc. But, it’s in direct opposition to what American voters want.

The “Make America First Again” agenda resonated with people who had been forgotten by the D.C. elite. We want those manufacturing jobs, the apprenticeship programs, the opportunity zones, the school choice, strong police, a strong military and patriotism on display. We want all of those things.

We don’t want constant race-baiting, men-hating, confused-gender, anti-police, pseudo-fact checking, media censors. We don’t want any of those things.

For those who appreciate the Trump agenda, take heart. The Senate doesn’t currently have the votes to convict Trump and even with Warnock and Ossoff coming in, the 60-vote threshold will be a stretch.

So this is more “political theater” for the brain washed masses, gamesmanship for the old guard, and little of anything else as far as the working folks are concerned.

In some way, shape or form, the “Make America First Again” agenda will survive and is very likely to grow, especially as politicians in D.C. continue to prove just how “tone-deaf” they really are.

They have their agenda and we have ours: “Make America First Again.”

Chinese Psyops vs. US

Chinese Psyops Against America
by Grant Newsham

The “Chinese Communist Party” (CCP) is a “nasty” regime.  But sometimes one “marvels” at what it has accomplished.  And no, it’s not the Shenzhen “skyscrapers” or the new Beijing “airport.”

Rather, the CCP has pulled off the most successful “psychological” operations campaign in history over the last four decades.  It managed to “neuter” the United States – the only country that might have “prevented” it from building an economy and a military able to challenge and conceivably “defeat” the Americans.

And it didn’t have to “fire” a shot.  More impressive, it got the Americans to “assist and even fund” the effort, convinced that the PRC was “nonthreatening, indispensable, and a gold mine.”

The Chinese didn’t exactly “hide” their intentions.  One only had to pay attention – and take Beijing at its word.

Like all good “psyops” campaigns, the Communists knew their target’s “vulnerabilities.” They capitalized on American “avarice, ignorance, naiveté, vanity, and hubris.”

And Beijing “attacked” on a broad front, successfully “manipulating American business and Wall Street, government officials and the political class, academia, and even U.S. military leaders.”

American industry was easy, given the hypnotic “allure” of Chinese money and the “vast” Chinese market.

One can hardly name a major American company that “stayed” out of the China market despite well known “risks.”

“Motorola – once a top American company – got in early and did everything right. But it was just committing suicide. Boeing, Apple, Pratt and Whitney, Microsoft, Tesla and many others remain, naively expecting a different outcome.”

The psychological “dependence is such that when China “threatens” market access, American corporations, and basketball players, “prostrate” themselves.

Wall Street was an even “easier” target. It‘s still falling over itself to get into China, with “other people’s money” of course.  The bankers get their “cut” no matter what happens.

Indeed, financial “luminaries” such as Henry Paulson, former head of Goldman Sachs and US Treasury Secretary, and Stephen Schwartzman of Blackstone seem more “committed” to the PRC than are the Chinese elites “spiriting” their own money out of the country as fast as they can.

Silicon Valley?  Never saw Chinese “money” it didn’t like.

And willfully “blind” U.S. securities regulators convinced themselves that Chinese companies deserve less scrutiny when listing on U.S. exchanges than do American companies.

Money “works” with Americans. The CCP didn’t even have to “break” a sweat.

Beijing was equally “successful” in Washington, making a clean “sweep” of U.S. administrations until “Trump” came along.  Of course, each “had its reasons.”

Obama was keen to “deescalate” regardless of Chinese provocations or broken promises. “Obamacare was more important. George Bush was “busy” with Iraq and Afghanistan and anyway lacked the stomach for “challenging” the PRC, as his treatment of Taiwan revealed. The Clintons? The Chinese just bought them off Not exactly difficult.

George H.W. Bush thought he “knew” the CCP –having lived in Beijing for 15 whole months – so he comforted the CCP after it “massacred” thousands of its citizens at Tiananmen Square. Even Ronald Reagan who brought down the Soviet Union – and “hated” communism – listened to his too clever half advisors by – handing over military technology to the PRC to “split” the Chinese from the Russians.

Jimmy Carter? He threw “away” Taiwan without ever explaining just why. Beijing presumably didn’t ask. And Richard Nixon started it all “begging” the PRC for a relationship when it should have been the “other” way around. His biggest mistake? Listening to a former Ivy League professor who knew “little” about China, and who the Chinese have “played” masterfully ever since.

And at the “working” level in D.C. China has found many officials “keen” to accommodate Beijing. All in the name of “statesmanship.” And all are convinced they “alone” know China and how to “handle” the Chinese, especially if they “speak” some Chinese. The Communists gladly let them think so.

The Obama administration’s Asia policy director was in Hong Kong not long ago – advising American businessmen that to “make money” in China they should align themselves with Xi Jinping’s interests. Some claim that’s what he did when on the U.S. Government payroll.

Another prominent former official who nearly got the State Department’s top Asia job in 2018 recently “advised” a Shanghai audience that included Chinese officials to “wait out” Mr. Trump until more “accommodating” people take over.

And it was easy “pickings” for the Chinese over on Capitol Hill.

Powerful Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was curiously accommodating on the PRC for decades.  Even musing: “I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese.” Meanwhile, her husband made a “bundle” from Chinese business dealings.

The Republicans were equally “subvertable”Senator Mitch McConnell having family connections to Chinese money – a lot of it.

Former Vice President and presidential candidate, Joe Biden recently declared there’s nothing to worry about from China.  Maybe the Chinese government’s “interest” in his son’s investment company had more to do with “manipulating” the Vice President than with Hunter Biden’s non existing “financial” brilliance?

Former legislators are also “juicy” targets for the PRC.

Joseph Lieberman – once the “conscience” of the U.S. Senate signed up to “lobby” on behalf of Chinese telecom firm ZTE last year. Ex-Senator and conservative, Republican David Vitter – has become a shill for Hikvision USA – the American branch of the Chinese company whose equipment is a backbone of the PRC’s surveillance state– and complicit in the “imprisonment” of a million Uighurs.

The list goes on. Ex-Secretary of Defense, William Cohen, a former Senator from Maine and a model of Down East sensibility, runs a consulting firm pushing business with the PRC. He just hired another ex-Defense Secretary, retired Marine General James Mattis Say it ain’t so. “About those Chinese concentration camps, General?’

Looking on the bright side…the Americans are usually just doing it for the “money” – not the ideology.

And believe it or not, things could be worse. There have always been officials and legislators in Washington “fighting” a holding action – starting with the Taiwan Relations Act in 1979 – to keep China’s agents and “useful idiots” from completely giving away the game.

American media has gone quiet. It gladly “savages” Russia and Putin, but when it comes to China it’s “kid gloves” treatment as most major media companies have been “keen” to not offend Beijing.

There are good reporters and columnists, but there’s also the other kind. Tom Friedman has been singing Beijing’s “praises” for years and once said he’d like to be the Chinese government for a day so he could “fix” America. Indeed. Newspapers print PRC government talking points “uncritically” as often as not – or even accept Chinese “paid” propaganda – as in Washington Post’s “China Daily” insert.

Bloomberg killed a well-researched story in 2013 on CCP leadership corruption– afraid of damaging it’s other moneymaking operations in the PRC. And consider the “fentanyl” epidemic that is killing more Americans each year than died during the “worst days” of the Vietnam War. American media rarely mention that China is the source of most of the drugs – and could turn it off in a minute.

Beijing benefited from U.S. administrations being “too afraid” to challenge Chinese restrictions and harassment of American reporters. And this while Chinese reporters and media companies operate “freely” in the U.S. The Americans convinced themselves they needed the PRC’s help with “climate change, transnational crime, and North Korea” – even though the help never came. It’s not Beijing’s fault if Americans are “gullible.”

With a few exceptions, Hollywood practically gives the word “whoredom” a bad name. Money has always been king, but there’s so much Chinese money around that “patriotism” has been declared persona non Grata – along with “human rights.”

As for American universities, Beijing correctly calculated the “price” of academia’s principles:  That’s “x” number of Chinese students paying full tuition. A visa, a business class ticket and a seminar invitation to the PRC works well too.

The Washington “think tanks” have always been rattling the “tin cup” for money – but some have fallen prey – willingly in most cases – to PRC “blandishments and cash.”

They of course claim they are still objective. But read carefully and it’s more often an attempt to sound objective while not “offending” Beijing.

Recently a D.C. think-tanker noted that “Taiwan gets better treatment from the PRC when Beijing’s relations with Washington are smoother.” In other words, give the CCP what it wants and it’ll “strangle” Taiwan more slowly. His advice to Taipei:  “Work something out with Beijing.”

Do-gooder NGO’s such as Greenpeace? Intimidated, speechless, and cowering while China “destroys” South China Sea reefs, “vacuums” the oceans of fish, and builds even more “coal-fired” energy plants. Bother the Chinese and they might shoot you.  The Americans won’t.

But how about the U.S. military – the one organization that is supposed to be clear-sighted about “threats” to the nation and “defending” against them.

China has done rather well. Until recently – say, a year or two ago – the U.S. military leadership largely “ignored” the Chinese military build up – even “refusing” to refer to the PRC as an adversary.

The military ruling class was even keen to “help” the PLA improve and professionalize itself.  One often heard the cliché:  “A strong China is a good thing.”

And PACOM commanders – with rare exceptions – gladly appeased China out of limitless “gullibility,” a desire to curry “favor” with the White House, or simply not being very “bright.” One can’t blame the PRC for taking advantage.

And more than a few senior officers happily retire and join the Track 2 dialogue racket of business class travel, five star hotel junkets, and lavish banquets in the PRC.

But certainly younger officers know the score? Maybe not. Too many young officers of all services know little “history” and even seem to lack “critical thinking” ability. Their understanding of China is based on Graham Allison’s book and the movie Kung Fu Panda.

Everything described here is the result of “conscious” decisions by well-educated, “pedigreed” Americans. Their tendency to explain away Chinese “behavior” is only surpassed by skill at explaining “away” their own behavior.  And it’s neat, “pleasing” sophistry.

The argument goes something like this:  What I’m doing is ok since it will lead to China liberalizing and buying into the “rules based order.” And the more I do the more likely this will happen. The alternative is “thermo-nuclear” war.  And if I make some money or get a promotion in the process, that’s a “win-win.”

The Trump administration is the first in decades to “challenge” China.  But does this indicate a “sea change” that will roll back Chinese “psyops” successes?

Don’t bet on it. The U.S. financial industry is still hot for the China market as is too much of the U.S. business community.

Just look at the guest list of Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s New Economy Forum held in Beijing recently. It’s business, finance, and government heavy hitters – and all happy to pose for a picture with Xi Xinping. Bloomberg himself even “declared” Xi is not a dictator. Really.

And it’s not just the financiers and businessmen. Former U.S. government officials, presumably aiming for sinecures in a new administration recently advised Hong Kongers to take their “medicine and accept enslavement.” One of them warned the Trump administration to “do no harm” when it comes to Hong Kong. In other words, don’t do anything China won’t like.”

The Mongols are famous for their psychological operations as they swept through Russia and into Eastern Europe in the 13th century. But they had to throw a few headless bodies over the town wall and give residents a choice: “surrender now or everyone dies tomorrow.”

The Chinese Communists have had it easier. Some combination of “money, flattery, and a ten-course dinner” is usually all that’s needed with Americans.

You’d think they would know they are being “played.” Perhaps. But maybe they just can’t “imagine it or just don’t care.”

Regardless, sometimes you have to step back in awe at what the Chinese have gotten the Americans to do to themselves.

Star Wars II

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 28, 2015 by andelino

Star Wars II -00

Two Star Wars videos are circulating around the Internet, one featuring “Donald Trump” and one featuring “Ted Cruz.”

Star Wars II -01

The Donald Trump video wasn’t exactly “produced” by the Trump campaign. In fact, it’s a “parody,” a very funny one.

Called “Darth Trump,” it shows footage from the “first” Star Wars film where Donald Trump’s voice is “dubbed” over Darth Vader’s.

The parody opens with Darth Vader, in Trump’s “voice,” telling stormtroopers who have just “slaughtered” Princess Leia’s crew how “popular and well liked he is” and how he “employs so many people.”

Then at the 3 minute mark he stands on the bridge of a “Star Destroyer” and boasts to Admiral Ozzal that he is “more militaristic than anyone in this room, I love war, in a certain way… and then he turns sharply to one of his generals… but only when we win.”

Later, when “confronting” Luke Skywalker on the edge of a precipice in “Cloud City,” you can hear Trump screaming, “I hit someone in the face with a padlock! Then I tried to stab a friend of mine whose name was Bob! He was a friend, but now he’s a member of my family” all the while Luke shakes his head and goes “No… no… that’s not possible!”

Later, he is “walking” with the Emperor on the second “Death Star” in front of rows and rows of “stormtroopers,” and Trump says, “The last poll you saw came out we’re leading… I think it’s all about competence, it’s about leadership… I get along with everybody” he says, as you see him marching past rows of “perfectly” still soldiers.

Star Wars II -05

The Ted Cruz’s video takes the “audio” from the trailer for “The Force Awakens” and matches it to “political” footage.

It really gets going at the 40 second mark, where the “artificially” low voice of the villain, Kylo Ren, says, “Nothing will stand in our way” as Hillary Clinton gets off a plane and then showing video of Obama with the deep voice saying “I will finish what you started.”

Then the video cuts to footage of President Reagan, and a woman’s voice says, “There are stories of what happened”, and a very old sounding Han Solo says, “It’s true.”

All of it, “as Reagan wins the cold war in the foreground. Then inspiring Jedi music is played while Ted Cruz campaigns.”

Ted Cruz has some strong “opinions” about Star Wars, saying that any candidate who’d say “Luke Skywalker” is the character they’d like to be most, should be “eliminated right off the bat.”

Watch to see who Cruz says he’d “like to be” from the Star Wars franchise as well as his own “Yoda and Darth Vader” impressions.

You can see him at the 45 second mark, doing a very credible Yoda “There is no try, only do” impression, as well as a very “lame” Darth Vader voice at the 55 second mark.

Donald Trump says that he and Ted Cruz have very similar views.

But when “pressed” he says there are some “differences,” like the fact that he, Donald Trump, has a much better temperament to be President than Ted Cruz.

In some ways this is “laughable,” but in other ways it is very “true.” Let’s look at both “sides” of the issue.

Star Wars II -02

We need a president who is going to be “aggressive” with our enemies “outside” the country and our political adversaries “inside” the country.

Until a few weeks ago, Ted Cruz was certainly a “thorn in the side” of the Senate establishment, but rhetorically he was “very low key.”

He’s been in the Senate for “three” years but only recently has he “called out” Mitch McConnell for “collaborating” with Obama and the Democrats.

For years I have watched him say things like, “Leadership promises me they will fight next time and I take them at their word.” Only recently has he “called” Mitch McConnell a “liar,” which he is.

Interviewed by “illegal” alien radical “advocate” Jorge Ramos, Cruz makes his conservative “points” but in a low key, soft, almost “apologetic” tone.

When asked about so called “transgendered” in the military he only says the military shouldn’t be a “cauldron of social experiments.”

All this has “changed” in recent weeks as his “rhetoric, volume and even tone of voice” have changed.

Now he thunders about the need to “shut down useless departments” of the government, and “carpet-bomb” ISIS.

In the “thundering” department, Donald Trump has Cruz “beaten” hands down. He made it “acceptable” to talk about deporting “illegal” aliens.

He was the first to call for a “temporary ban” on Muslim immigration. He’s not afraid to take on “any” issue, except perhaps big bloated agri-corps who want ethanol mandates.

When the media “attacks” him, he “bites” back. Articles have actually been written “stating” that GOP establishment billionaires are “afraid” to attack Trump for fear he will attack back!

He has “single” handedly taken down Jeb Bush, for which he deserves “tremendous” gratitude, and he is starting in on Hillary Clinton in a great way, calling her “tired and weak.”

Trump’s much “more” of a fighter, even than Ted Cruz, and we “need” a fighter.

Star Wars II -03

But, on the other hand, Ted Cruz is more “balanced.” He doesn’t pick “enemies” needlessly. Every word is “measured and considered,” which can be viewed as “timid or thought-out,” depending on your perspective.

Donald Trump is like a “Terminator” with no friend or foe sensor. He called Megyn Kelly a “bimbo,” rightfully so. I wince when he said that Ben Carson, a thoroughly decent man, has “pathological illness”, which Carson was obviously only using as a “metaphor” for his youthful violent nature.

He also made a “swipe” at Ted Cruz’s religion by saying “not many evangelicals come out of Cuba”. “It’s true, but I like him nevertheless.”

He told a Jewish group that they wouldn’t “vote” for him because they wanted a candidate they could control with their money. He wants to ban all Muslim “immigrants” for a time, but a much less “incendiary” way of doing it is to “ban” immigrants from ISIS “infested” countries, as Cruz wants to do.

Trump gets “offended” very easily and is quick to “insult” others and get angry. Not the best “trait” for the president of the United States who may need to “build” alliances and bring “people” together.

So Trump has more of the “aggressiveness” we need, but maybe “too” aggressive in some ways

Ted Cruz is a little more “cautious,” but with few “unnecessary and even puzzling” outbursts.

Star Wars II -04

And then there is Obama confiscating blasters from “Stormtroopers” during White House “photo op.”

I saw photos of “Imperial” Stormtroopers making a photo op at the White House, and something “struck” me immediately as curious.

The Stormtroopers had “nothing” in their hands. Instead of “gripping” blasters, as they always do, their hands were nervously “hovering” around their groins.

Obama “disarmed” fictional characters with “fictional” weapons. How “weird” is that?

So what is the “symbolism” here? Is it…

a) That gun control is so overboard that we are now confiscating even toy guns?
b) A metaphor for how Obama is disarming the military?
c) A different metaphor for Obama’s embrace of an all-powerful centralized government?

Star Wars II -07

Interesting that he “invited” Stormtroopers but no members of the “rebellion.” Perhaps he “approves” of the Empire’s inclusiveness for gay and lesbian Imperials.

Star Wars II -06
