Mexican

6 hours 8 min ago

The separation of illegal criminals, I mean undocumented Mexican vagrants from their kids has become the rallying cry for the Democrats. Hey, I ain’t even gonna lie to you. Just when you’d think Trump’s election would soak in the radical left spikes the football in HIS end zone and does a little victory dance.

Trump announced his run for the presidency, telling everyone that he was going to chase all the Mexicans out of the country and build a wall to keep them out. Yeah, I said it. MEXICANS! It works like this. If you are born in Mexico, then you’re a Mexican. My great, great, great whomever was born in Ireland. That made him Irish. I am an American. George Rodriguez is an American. People from California are. . . I don’t know what they are. Still working on that!

And they drag their kids over. Now, work with me on this. Cops come to my house. We had a party and things got out of hand. Cops prepare to cuff and stuff me, I tell them to hold on. I gotta bring my kids with me. When you are detained for breaking United States law your kids go elsewhere.

So liberal senators start showing up at detention centers to check the living conditions out. Living conditions? The kids just walked across the Mojavé in their socks! Never saw a Big Mac in their life until they were placed in that reconditioned Walmart that you and I are paying for. And that’s another thing. You’d have thought they would be put in a Home Depot. That racist enough for ya?

And these gay, communist, atheist supporters of open borders are throwing the Bible into the mix like a bunch of TV evangelists. I haven’t heard the Bible quoted so much in years. Our school kids sure haven’t. Finding passages in Leviticus about “not molesting” foreigners. Hey! I’m cool. Now check out what it says you can do with a slave or somebody’s kid sister you picked up during the last war. I mean if we’re gonna go Biblical let’s just buy some Trojans and git ’r done! Did that shock you? Hey, I’ve BEEN to Boy’s Town, ok?

Illegals are just that. ILLEGALS! And Mexican illegals are a special brand. Why do we treat them differently than say Italians? Because there’s a big difference between displaying the American flag on Columbus Day and forming La Raza! THAT’S why! Pitch a guy out of the country three or four times and he winds up shooting a girl having ice cream with her daddy. ”I did not know the gun had a bullet in it when I stole it!”

I love Latino people, especially the girls. I grew up in a Tex-Mex village. I was married in Mexico! Back in the day, I had nothing against Pablo slipping across the border to pick oranges. He’d go back, or get sent back and just come back next year to pick more oranges. Difference was, Pablo KNEW he was a Mexican! He kept his head down and didn’t protest in the streets. And he didn’t bring his kids to a situation that he knew could go bad at any moment. The ride is over, the wall is coming and we are making America great again so get a green card, Pablo!

Higgins says he will no longer back ‘misguided’ Pelosi

Sun, 06/17/2018 - 1:35pm
 Rep. Brian Higgins of Buffalo said Wednesday that he will not back House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California for another term as the top Democrat in the House.

“I will not support her,” Higgins said in an interview with The Buffalo News.

Higgins cited the lack of a clear Democratic agenda as an alternative to President Trump, as well as Pelosi’s lack of interest in his bills to expand Medicare and invest in infrastructure, as the key sources of his frustration.

“She’s listening, but this is my conclusion: She’s aloof, frenetic and misguided,” Higgins said.

Higgins’ surprise move makes him one of only a small number of House Democrats who have said publicly that they will not back Pelosi, who became the top House Democrat in 2003 and who served as the first woman speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011.

Obama Presidential Center to cost Illinois taxpayers nearly $200 million

Sun, 06/17/2018 - 1:27pm

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers.

Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature’s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away.

“Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our partners in Springfield also saw the potential for what this means for all of Illinois. The state’s $174 million investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement about the groundbreaking ceremony for the metro stop Friday.

Bernie Sanders won’t endorse own son’s US House candidacy

Sun, 06/17/2018 - 11:05am

If Bernie Sanders doesn’t receive a Father’s Day card on Sunday, the reason might not be hard to figure out.

The U.S. senator from Vermont has declined to endorse his son Levi Sanders, 49, a candidate for a U.S. House seat in New Hampshire, according to reports.

“He’s on his own,” the elder Sanders told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night, adding that he doesn’t like “dynastic politics.”

“He’s on his own.”

– Bernie Sanders, referring to son Levi’s run for a congressional seat

Some say they are not surprised, because the elder Sanders has a long history of being stingy with political endorsements.

Thoughts on Matthew 6:34

Thoughts on Matthew 6:34

We know that worry and anxiety are not characteristics of a godly Christian. Yet still, many Christians worry. You can choose to worry, or you can reject worry and choose to live with joy and peace. Most people don’t want to hear that message, and they seem to find an odd comfort in thinking that worrying is beyond their control. It is not. Worry is a sin against God. As long as I’ve been in the church, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone make that statement. But it is sin. It is calling God a liar. It is saying that God is not sufficiently able to take care of you and provide for your needs.

Faith says, “God will do it.” Worry says, “God isn’t able to help me.”

When you worry, you not only call God a liar, but you have also allowed the devil to fill your mind with anxious thoughts. The more you focus on the problems, the larger they become. You start to fret and may even end up in despair.

Jesus taught that we are not to worry about anything in life. He wasn’t speaking about planning and thinking ahead. He was saying that some people never act because fear holds them back. They can always tell you ten things that can go wrong with every plan. Jesus wants us to live a stress-free life. If you are worrying about what might happen, you’re hindering God from working in your life.

******

Thoughts from The Butcher: Every time someone tells me I can’t do something that’s exactly what I do. That’s because I know for every detractor there are nine who are on the same sheet of music. You can’t record a record in a garage in Harker Heights, Texas and distribute millions of copies. You can’t write three thousand songs. You can’t write five books, the last one on an iPhone. You can’t write thousands of blogs, and you’ll never walk again after getting your legs mashed off in a head on collision in a gas station. Every time I had doubts, Jesus said, ”C’mon, let’s go!” He writes, I’m just a secretary.

What You Gon’ Do?

Sat, 06/16/2018 - 10:06am

What You Gon’ Do? Richard Pryor related a story relating to his well known addiction to crack cocaine. He had a close friend, the football great, Jim Brown. Jim tried for years to keep Richard on the straight and narrow. Once, during one of his incredible low points, Jim came to Richard’s house. Of course Pryor was ”on the pipe.” Jim sat there before him as he descended into a smoky haze. Beyond all the rehab, psychology and arrests, Jim boiled it all down to three simple words. ”What you gon’ do?”

When confronted by insurmountable problems, sometimes we come to a crossroads. Just like in the movie, we can decide what to do, or make a deal with the devil. The devil has been stalking the corridors of our schools for far too long. It’s time for us to ask ourselves, ”What you gon’ do?”

When solutions are suggested it always comes down to expense, not what you gon’ do? The problem with school shootings is not the gun. It’s our entire society. We expelled God from class when a crazy woman from Austin didn’t like what He had to say. We invented the CPS so as to have the constant threat of the destruction of the family if parents didn’t tow the line defined by some childless caseworker with twenty one days of training. We read books by another childless nincompoop. We raised a child’s opinion to the rebuttal of discipline, and we sent our children to schools filled with teachers who should have been working at Walmart. And now we have about one school shooting a week, right on schedule. This is my surprised face. What you gon’ do?

In my opinion public schools have gone the way of the dinosaur. Back in the day, and I mean WAY back in the day, the ”little red schoolhouse” was the norm. One room, around thirty kids, some old maid teaching the ”three ’Rs” and a PADDLE! In any system there’s a level where it works and then there’s a point where it doesn’t work. Unfortunately that’s the level the public school hit a long time ago. Public schools are a herd of dinosaurs just waiting for that comet.

But, since we seem to be stuck with these contraptions for a while, how do we secure them? I’m Just gonna tell you right now that you’ll never get rid of all the guns in Texas. You might be able to rid America of all the guns because they’re too worried about where to take a pee to think about anything as in depth as the Constitution. Forget America, let Trump take care of that, let’s just concentrate on Texas for now. We just pee off the porch.

Problem: We want to dissuade sexually frustrated nerds from shooting up classrooms. You’re always gonna have these kids. They’re the ones the football boys give wedgies. I, personally, while in high school, couldn’t find a date with a fifty dollar bill. I never dreamed of hurting anyone. I DID participate in drilling a peep hole between the boy’s and girls locker rooms, but I digress.

Whenever I suggest bullet proof glass, metal detectors, armed police or teachers I get two answers from the politicians and teaching staff. One is expense. Do I understand how much it would cost just to keep one little girl alive? Why such measures would break the budget. We’d have to close the schools down! Remember earlier I said, ”In any system there’s a level where it works and then there’s a point where it doesn’t work.” Well, here we are! Time to burn the Little Red School House down. That or let God back in and pray the next nut finds Jesus before he fires that first round. Hey folks, I got faith, but not that much. When you tell me that you’re in charge of my kids, but you can’t be responsible for keeping them safe ’cause you ain’t got no money, I just hand you a Walmart application form.

The next answer is more intellectual if we’re allowed to use the words ”teacher” and ”intellectual” in the same sentence. If we secure the schools the way I suggest, the students would have their privacy invaded, and be in a virtual prison! Ever hear the term TSA? They will look up your little girl’s butt for a nuclear bomb. Stepping through a metal detector is a small price to pay for going home to mommy and daddy alive, don’t you think? So, What you gon’ do?

Solution: Close the schools and embrace the twenty first century. What do kids do most of the time when religious nuts don’t intervene? INTERNET! You enroll them in school. You issue them an iPad. You sign them up for classes. Uh, civics, English, history, and math. Add Homemaking or the girls. Where you had sixteen teachers teaching sixteen classes out of the same textbook, you have ONE working in a call center with around five hundred online students. Tests are secured much like your credit card and results are emailed to the parents. One teacher loading modules. Send the other fifteen to Walmart. Give the online teacher a raise.

I want to ask the students of the nation to do me a favor. The next time some idiot blasts his way down the hallway I want you kids to go to the art classroom, tie up the teacher so she can’t stop you, steal some poster board and magic markers and make signs. Then I want you to march out into the parking lot, stand on the teachers’ cars and display your signs reading, ”What you gon’ do?”

A Childless Father Who Has a Son

Fri, 06/15/2018 - 9:51pm
I am blessed.  My wife gave me a son. He was hers before he was mine.  Then he became ours.  In my heart he is always mine and I feel as if I am his Dad.

But it often feels like a homerun record with an asterisk, an almost.  You see, I’m a step-father.  That’s as close as I will ever come to experiencing the life of a father and for that I am forever thankful to God for I am a childless father who has a son.
I know the pride of watching my son play little league.  Together we experienced the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.  I encouraged him to play music.  I helped with homework.  I watched him march in band.  I raced against the stop lights time after time to make it to events and meetings with teachers, doctor’s appointments, and birthdays.  I watched him graduate grade school after driving him from one town to another so he could remain in the same school with his friends after we moved.  I blessed God when he graduated high school and earned scholarships to college.  I was happy when he chose the girl my wife and I prayed for long before we ever met her, enjoyed being the father of the groom, and I love my grandchildren with all my heart.  I am truly blessed.  My wife gave me a son.

But there are four other children I have never known.  Four other children blood of my blood and bone of my bone that I never had the chance to know.

These are my aborted children.

They were aborted without my consent, told by the women involved and the courts that it was none of my business, murdered within the law, slaughtered beyond the pale.  They are still alive within my heart.

Let me say in defense of the women who aborted my children, before I gave my life to Christ I was a snake.  As a matter of fact I’ve always said that before I was saved snakes would cross the street when they saw me coming.  I was a drug addicted; drunken scheming dreamer convinced I should be something I wasn’t and equally convince I wasn’t what I was.

Any young woman who learned they were pregnant and that I was the father could not be blamed for deciding I was a waste of space, a self-indulgent loser, and a disaster as a potential father.  And although none of the three young women involved ever told me why they aborted my children, that’s what I have always thought was my addition to the equation.

Once I gave my life to Christ.  Once I sobered up, straightened out, and stood in the light of His love I knew he forgave me for any part I played in the deaths of these innocent children.  I know He forgives everyone who lays their sins at the foot of the cross.

Over the years He has ministered to my heart, my spirit, and my soul as I have cried tears for who could have been.  I am healed for when He said, “It is finished,” sin was defeated.  When He rose from the grave life conquered death, and since He ascended into heaven where He took His place at the right hand of the Father together we all live in Him.  I am healed.

But there is not a day I don’t miss those children.  There is not a day I don’t think of what might have been.  There is not a day that I don’t imagine seeing them in Him.

I struggle sometimes knowing that two of the women who aborted my children later had other children.  They’ve had an experience they took from me.  I don’t begrudge them the joy of parenting.  I have forgiven them.  But sometimes I’m jealous of what they have and of what I shall never have and for this I repent.  I also struggle sometimes watching other women I know have had abortions and later had children.  I know God has forgiven them.  I don’t have anything against them but at times I struggle with my own emotions.

All of this is the burden of this forgotten father.  I was forgotten in the decision to abort my children.  I have been forgotten in all the years since.

I may be forgotten but I cannot forget.

My children died.  Four lost lives in the American holocaust of millions.  They are four souls whose blood cries out to God, four cracks in my broken heart, four children of God I long to know, four tears I shall cry till the day we meet.

A step-father is like a used shoe.  It may look good, it may wear well, and at time it may even feel good.  But it’s still a used shoe.

However my step-son may feel about me I know how I feel about him.  He is my son.  I may have lost four but I have gained one.  I am blessed.  My wife gave me a son.

Pakistan Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah targeted by US strike in Afghanistan

Fri, 06/15/2018 - 8:31pm
There are unconfirmed reports that Mullah Fazlullah – the commander of the Pakistan Taliban – has been killed in a US air strike in Afghanistan.

Fazlullah’s men shot the schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan in 2012.

He was also behind the 2014 massacre in the Pakistani city of Peshawar that killed more than 130 schoolchildren.

He became head of the Pakistani Taliban in 2013 and has been operating in Afghanistan for years.

The US attack was in collaboration with Afghan forces.

The US military only confirmed it had carried out a strike aimed at a senior militant figure in the eastern Afghan province of Kunar, which is on the Pakistani border.

An Afghan Defence Ministry spokesman told the BBC that Fazlullah was targeted and killed.

Government is corrupt, so we should give it more of our money, make it bigger, and give it even more control over our lives
Gut the military

So: Which party represents YOUR values?

The narrative has been destroyed. Secular progressivism isn’t an ideology, it’s a mental disorder. If you are still voting Democrat, you are part of the problem, and you belong in a therapist’s office – not a voting booth.

I have lived through several United States Presidents prior to our current President Trump. In my lifetime, I have never seen nor heard of a President scrutinized over every word he speaks, humiliated by the public to the point of disgrace, slandered, ridiculed, insulted, lied to & beyond common logic, threatened with death, threatened to rape our Beautiful First Lady, Our First Lady Disrespected, & have his children also insulted & humiliated.

I am truly ashamed of the people of MY country. I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel, Trump haters who display themselves as to have no pride, morals, ethics nor values in Our Country’s traditions. Our Elders taught us 30, 40+ yrs ago to respect our President, whether we voted for them or not, & all these news stations & reporters who feel they have the right to carry on with blatant lies & say the things they do for a good story. Every other President before he was elected, that took the oath of office, was left alone, wasn’t on the news 24/7, scrutinized by their every word. ALWAYS BEING PRESSURED to do this or that & never given the time to take care of the important work this country really needs. I know he is not perfect, very different than what we’ve become accustomed to but ENOUGH is ENOUGH, LEAVE THE MAN ALONE & LET HIM DO HIS JOB!!

None of the other Presidents in their times were spotless or perfect either.

But everyone knows I’m just a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas, What do I know?
Special thanks to Chris Martineau, Keep up the good work and expose the fraud!

Justice Minister: “No room in Finland for Sharia law”

Thu, 06/14/2018 - 11:32pm
Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen has rejected the use of Islamic Sharia law in Finland.

Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen said on Tuesday that religion or culture cannot be used to justify the violation of the rights of women or girls through forced marriages or genital mutilation, for instance. Speaking in Helsinki, he said diversity does not mean that parallel communities that do not ensure all basic rights should be allowed to develop in the country.

“Finland is an open, international country that is rich linguistically and culturally, and where basic rights belong equally to everyone… Finnish justice gives equal protection to everyone, regardless of skin colour, religion, gender, culture or other background,” he said.

“There is no room in Finland for Sharia law or other efforts towards a parallel society,” Häkkänen added.

The minister was speaking at the Etno-forum seminar, hosted by the Advisory Board for Ethnic Relations, which works under the auspices of the Ministry of Justice.

Häkkänen, a 33-year-old first-term MP, is seen as a rising star within the conservative National Coalition Party. He became justice minister just over a year ago.

25 Years vs. 500 Days

Thu, 06/14/2018 - 10:39pm
It’s been almost 70 years…70 long years of animosity and mistrust and it all came to an end on Tuesday, June 12th at around 2:30 am EST when President Donald J. Trump and North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un signed a document at the NOKO Summit putting the past behind together signaling a new day not just for our two nations but for the world as well.

And getting to that new day has seen many bumps along the way but the fact is we’re here now. And some are still in awe as to how we got here…and what took so long…but to understand that we must visit the past to truly appreciate the great possibilities the future now holds.

Let’s start with the fact that U.S. policy towards North Korea has always been to “deter conflict” on the peninsula, prevent North Korea from developing both nuclear weapons and its corresponding delivery systems, and more recently forcing the North to improve its human rights record. At the same time North Korea wanted the removal of U.S. forces from South Korea, wanted to be recognized as a nuclear power and world “player,” and sought food and energy assistance via sanctions relief.

And while in the past there have been a few back channel communications via the DPRK Mission to the U.N., there have been no formal diplomatic contacts between the U.S. and North Korea since April 2012, with the collapse of the ‘Leap Day Agreement’ (LDA)…until Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met secretly with Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang this past Easter Sunday.

But what was the ‘Leap Day Agreement’ and why did it collapse? The LDA was simply a “backdoor agreement” that saw North Korea agreeing to a moratorium on nuclear tests, long-range missile launches, and uranium enrichment activity at Yongbyon while also allowing IAEA inspectors to monitor the moratorium on said uranium enrichment. In return, the U.S. agreed to provide North Korea with 240,000 metric tons of food aid. However, said agreement went by the wayside when on April 13, 2012 North Korea launched its Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-sung.

And basically dead silence until then, but to understand the true complexities of a situation that did not end until Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un shook hands on a stage in Singapore, one must go back to where it all began… back to the end of World War II when Korea was divided into two “spheres of influence” along the 38th parallel with the U.S. controlling south of the line and Russia controlling the north, later on ceding their “influence” to China. Then on June 25, 1950 after the Soviets boycotted the U.N. Security Council over their decision to exclude China from membership, then-U.S. President Harry Truman secured a resolution to use force against North Korea after the North Korean Communist army…equipped with Soviet weapons…crossed the 38th parallel and invaded the south in an attempt to take the entire peninsula as their own.

And so the Korean War began.

By the time the war…the “police action” as we called it… ended on July 27, 1953 after then-President Dwight D. Eisenhower threatening to use nuclear weapons to end what was a stalemate…three million North Koreans, one million Chinese, 58,000 American soldiers, and close to one thousand British troops lay dead. However, while Communist expansion was halted to some degree and many prisoners were exchanged, no official peace treaty between the two Korea’s was signed, instead a supposedly in good faith “armistice”…an armistice which was supposed to lead to eventual talks to end the political discourse… created the Korean ‘Demilitarized Zone’ which officially separated North and South Korea, and does so to this day.

And while some claim the creating of such a zone was ground zero of the Cold War…it was not…what it did do was set policy for future American presidents in their dealings with North Korea…especially in regards to capitulation which remains a touch point with Kim Jong-un. And know that any discussions between our country and North Korea must allow Kim Jong-un to “save face” with total capitulation not an option. That’s why Kim is pushing so hard for an official peace treaty be put in place between the two Koreas, because he deems a peace treaty as a necessary formality to the achievement of security on the peninsula…security for his regime most especially…security without capitulation.

In fact, back in 1974 in a letter to Congress, then leader Kim Il-sung publicly invited the U.S. to join negotiations for a peace treaty to replace the armistice. Neither the Nixon nor the Ford administrations responded to this request, and when Kim Il-sung again raised the idea of working on a peace treaty with Jimmy Carter as usual nothing was done…in fact Carter wanted to withdraw American forces from South Korea thus leaving the South ripe for North Korea’s picking. Talk about capitulation…for the wrong side that is.

And while our beloved Ronald Reagan increased U.S. troop numbers in the South in an effort to keep North Korea in check, he for whatever reason was philosophically opposed to a peace treaty. And while his successor, George H.W. Bush, withdrew nuclear weapons deployed abroad and reduced U.S. troop numbers in South Korea somewhat, he too did not seriously consider negotiating a peace treaty…thankfully President Trump does.

And then there’s President Bill Clinton, who actually visited North Korea in 2009, and here is where all really goes down hill for here is where capitulation sadly becomes America’s middle name. Remember, Lyndon Johnson already capitulated to the North in 1968 with that shameful admission of spying so as to secure the release of the captured USS Pueblo crew. But now to make matters worse than just admitting things that were not true, comes Billy-Boy Clinton throwing money at a problem which allowed North Korea to become even more embolden as we see capitulation…on our part…becoming the rule of the day.

Let’s start with the fact that Bill Clinton did broker a deal with North Korea in October 1994 over its threat to go nuclear. Negotiating a deal known as the ‘Joint Framework Agreement’ in which the North promised it would freeze and eventually dismantle its graphite-moderated reactors and related facilities in exchange for alternative energy, economic, and diplomatic benefits…including two light-water reactors which were believed to be more difficult to use to make weapons than North Korea’s already in existence plutonium reactor. However, what this $4 billion deal actually was, was the ultimate capitulation known as bribery in the sense that sanctions against the North would be lifted as soon North Korea signed on the dotted line thus allowing money to flow back into a country who leaders could not be trusted to keep their word or honor any agreement signed.

And of course this agreement failed…and thankfully it did…with North Korea now seeing itself as being listed as a “rouge regime” under George W. Bush after admitting they had been secretly conducting a nuclear-weapons program for several years. Now withdrawing from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty…a treaty whose intent they had no intention of following anyway…North Korea now revved up it’s nuclear program.

And that brings us to Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his dealings…or should I say capitulation…in regards to North Korea…with capitulation in this case being his usual weak stance of leading from behind. Remember, throughout his presidency Obama criticized North Korea for testing nuclear weapons and starving his own people all while he begged China to step in to help him tone down North Korea’s rhetoric and aggression. Begging… the leader of the world’s strongest nation could not handle North Korea’s continuing threats against the U.S. all by his lonesome it seems. If that’s not capitulation we don’t know what is…if that’s not failed diplomacy bordering on cowardliness we don’t know what is.

Now as for President Trump, we see in him a strong leader who not only leads from the front, but a leader who calls all the shots. Deeply affected by the death of Otto Warmbier…the young man held by the North Koreans for stealing a souvenir poster…the young man released by his captures solely so his death wouldn’t happen on their soil…Otto’s death set in motion the chain of events that led up to two once adversaries shaking hands with the above stated promise to leave the past behind helping to set the doomsday clock back a bit.

And the plight of Otto Warmbier was only the beginning of the 500 days, but it clearly set the tone for the event that would make history.

From President Trump’s first days in office and following his campaign promises to get tough on North Korea, the president embarked in a war of words and actions that turned the tide in the long stalemate between the two countries.

To fully understand the president’s first 500 days with regards to North Korea, one really needs to go back to the 2016 campaign where in a debate then candidate Donald Trump called North Korea’s regime leader, Chairman Kim Jong-un a maniac. “Nobody ever mentions North Korea, where you have this maniac sitting there, and he actually has nuclear weapons and somebody better start thinking about North Korea and perhaps a couple of other places. But certainly North Korea.”

Even before becoming a presidential candidate back in 2013, citizen Donald Trump had North Korea on his mind, tweeting in 2013, “North Korea is reliant on China. China could solve this problem easily if they wanted to but they have no respect for our leaders,” adding a month later in April 2013, “North Korea can’t survive, or even eat, without the help of China.”

And even before that Donald Trump had a clear and unobstructed view of North Korea when he told Tim Russert in an interview, “Do you want to do it in five years when they have warheads all over the place, every one of them pointing to New York City, to Washington and every one of us, is that when you want to do it, or do you want to do something now?” Trump said. “You’d better do it now. And if they think you’re serious…they’ll negotiate and it’ll never come to that.”

But one could look at April 2013 as the moment Donald Trump set the tone for his first 500 days in office when via a tweet he warned Obama, “Our President must be very careful with the 28 year old whack job in North Korea. At some point we may have to get very tough-blatant threats.” And just months before the 2016 election candidate Trump floated that he would be willing to hold talks with the North Korean regime leader, and when the inevitable blow back came his way Trump’s response was classic Trump…“What the hell is wrong with speaking? It’s called opening a dialogue.”

The rhetoric by now is well known, referring to Kim Jong-un as the “little rocket man,” making it known that as president, Trump had a bigger red button on his desk that worked better than the one on the North Korean leader’s desk. Telling the world a year ago, in June of 2017 that the “era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed,” and then on August 8, 2017 amid the “little rocket man’s” continuation of firing ballistic missiles over the heads of our allies in the region, President Trump issued a dire warning…“fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.” The President then added…“Let’s see what [Kim] does with Guam. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before – what will happen in North Korea.”

The escalating rhetoric had the mainstream media spreading fears of a nuclear war with North Korea and questioning President Trump’s fitness for the office because of it, but what they didn’t realize or want to admit, was that there was a method to that rhetoric, and that Trump was right to use it.

As a businessman, Donald Trump often had to get tough with those unwilling to make a deal, and as the president he understood the only tone that a rogue dictator like Kim Jung-un would respect is strength. If President Trump really wanted to bring North Korea to the table he would first have to get the attention of North Korea’s leader… something no president over the past quarter of a century had been able to do…and President Trump knew exactly how to do it.

President Trump knew that the one and only way to deal with Kim Jong-un was face-to-face. Kim wasn’t going to respect the prospect of meetings between underlings…as in Secretaries of State or U.N. Ambassadors…it would have to be the two leaders themselves or it would simply be a repeat of the last 25 years.

Also, from his first day in office, President Trump knew what his predecessors either couldn’t bring themselves to embrace or in the case of Obama, steadfastly refused to acknowledge…acknowledge that the U.S. had the upper hand. President Trump knew that the U.S. could put trade pressure on China and promise to ease some of that pressure should China take steps to pressure Kim Jong-un…and militarily Trump knew that North Korea was no match for U.S. might.

Previous presidents, both the Bush’s and Bill Clinton, had worried far too much about the optics of meeting one on one with any North Korean leader, and feared the political fallout should they even suggest such a thing. So their answer to North Korea was a decade’s long series of bribes and payoffs that North Korea gladly took advantage of and had no respect for. Obama even sent then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over for a handshake knowing it was but a facade, and that North Korea was aiding and abetting his pals in Iran with their nuclear weapons program. Obama didn’t want to do anything against or with North Korea as long as North Korea was assisting Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

President Trump knew that as businessman Trump, if he and in this case the U.S. held the upper hand, that great risks often produce great rewards, and setting up a one-on-one, face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong-un was a great risk…but that if done right, it could result in great rewards.

President Trump knew that he and only he had to be in complete control of any such meeting or summit, and he made absolutely sure of it with one last volley of rhetoric when he called the now arranged summit off on May 24th of this year…and Kim Jong-un sent his top envoy, Kim Yong-chol, to the White House begging for the summit to be put back on the calendar.

Just eight days after pulling the plug on the June 12th summit, President Trump, then firmly in control of the entire situation, announced that he would travel to Singapore and meet with Kim Jong-un on June 12th.

In a mere 500 days, President Trump used every tool at his disposal combined with a firm knowledge that the U.S. held the upper hand, and accomplished what no other president since the dawn of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program had been able to do…he brought the North Korean leader to the table and opened an official dialogue…face-to-face…that was to say at the very least…historic.

This of course leaves the question…what can we expect going forward from this point?

To begin, we do not expect North Korea to change overnight is completely unrealistic and we don’t believe that President Trump believes they will, but we do expect some positive actions in a relatively short period of time.

There is a great deal of work to be done setting up the ground rules for what is expected or desired from North Korea. Remember, what was signed on June 12th by President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un was only a document…a declaration to begin the process of desired changes. It was not a “deal” per se as many mainstream media sources are trying to portray it.

We expect Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to be meeting soon with his North Korean counterpart to begin hammering out details which will include the close oversight of the dismantling of the North Korean nuclear weapons program. Such oversight will likely include officials from the IAEA, South Korea, and from the United States as well.

Before the dismantling can begin it will be necessary to send in investigators to verify exactly what North Korea has and where they have it, closely monitoring the situation to make sure elements of their nuclear weapons program aren’t being moved and hidden away from such inspectors…something the George W. Bush administration accused North Korea of doing. And North Korea’s response…they kicking out the international inspectors that had already been sent in under the Clinton administration.

It’s not so much a matter of “trust but verify” as it is a matter of “don’t trust and oversee the operations like a hawk.”

We also expect President Trump to insist on key changes to North Korea’s human rights situation, as in accounting for all Japanese citizens held in North Korea along with their immediate release, and possibly the release of all political prisoners held by the rogue nation’s regime. That is something Kim Jong-un could do almost immediately as a sign of good faith, and it would signal to the world that the North Korean leader is serious about making wholesale changes in his country.

It is also likely that President Trump will seek assistance from China in moving North Korea to some form of what they currently call their economic system…as in a “socialist market economy”…with some elements of capitalism involved in exchange for loosening trade tariffs, a move we believe would benefit China as well as North Korea by beginning the process of making North Korea less of a drain on the Chinese government and economy.

And if Kim Jong-un is serious and truly wants change, complete denuclearization…as per the experts…could be accomplished in as little as two years ten years tops, but a quantum shift in his country’s ideology remains undetermined at this point in time.

One thing not many are talking about is the oversight needed to prevent North Korea’s nuclear scientists and engineers from drifting to rogue nations like Iran once North Korea’s nuclear weapons program comes to a halt. We’re talking about thousands of highly specialized personnel who have been trained to do nothing but produce nuclear weapons and along with their corresponding delivery systems. The last thing we want…the last thing President Trump wants…is to have those people lured into the clutches of the mullahs where they would expedite the nuclear weapons capabilities of Iran or any islamist group.

Along those same lines also falls North Korea’s nuclear weapons documents, potentially millions of them which, if they haven’t already shared them with Iran, and we most surely believe they have, would also fetch a staggering price on the terrorist open market. Those documents will be much harder to keep under wraps than will be the dismantling of the North Korean nuclear weapons and sites themselves.

Yet when all is said and done the bottom is that right now North Korea is a nuclear nation but it is the U.S….it is President Donald J. Trump…who is negotiating from a position of strength. President Trump should relish in the opportunity to do what his predecessors have failed to do in his offering North Korea what amounts to peace for denuclearization thus welcoming them out of isolation and into the 21st century. If President Trump can have accomplished in just 500 days what his predecessors couldn’t accomplish in the previous 25 years, he will go down in the annuls of history as one of the greatest American presidents of all time.

Go Ahead Punk, Make My Day

Thu, 06/14/2018 - 9:23am

”Go ahead Punk. Make my day!” C’mon, you know who said that. Clint never really shot anybody. Well, he almost shot Michael Moore. I’m talking about shooting someone that would result in some kind of charges.

We all like the movies. They lift us out of the day to day routine. We imagine ourselves in the place of the actors. We see the simple solutions as viable. Then we leave the theater and reality sets in yet again. Upset fathers don’t really roam the streets of New York with a .32 pistol causing a drop in crime, cars really don’t make the leap across a disconnected draw bridge, and Jody Foster is really a dyke.

So why do we listen to these cackle babble heads in a box when it comes to politics? Because that’s their business. Cackle babbling. AND they live in California. Need I say more?

California is proof positive that no state, or nation should ever be turned completely over to white folks. For years the only black guy in town was Al Jolson. Is that racist phony crap or what? That’s HOLLYWOOD! That’s what you’re listening to!

These people are in the attention getting business. The way it usually works is a writer puts words in their mouths and they ACT! Now, when it’s on the silver screen we know it’s acting. When it’s Robert DeNiro spouting off at some gala event with the LGBTQ writhing in their seats the definition becomes somewhat blurred. But it’s the same thing!

DeNiro doesn’t have any opinion, morals, or political understanding. He’s an ACTOR! They give him money and he’s says anything he’s paid to say. If Trump gave him ten mil he’d sit up there and convincingly tell you that whales speak French at the bottom of the sea. Then he’d leave to gang bang a Girl Scout troupe with Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein.

But this is the basket the liberals are putting all their eggs in. For the last fifty years sound bites, and talking points have been taken as political savvy. Especially when it’s delivered by some rock-jawed homosexual that YOU thought was on the Seal Team Six in his off time. You thought Bruce Jenner was a man’s man until he picked up his purse and put on a dress.

MAGA is a big ship. It wins elections. The democrats are losing ground, bit by bit. Whenever some libtard wins any election they go into full production. But more and more people are seeing things for what they really are, and the times they are a changing.

California will always be full of nuts. Just pick the country up by Maine and see where all the nuts roll to. There’s even a motion on their ballot in November to split into three states. One for each gender, I guess. Oh sure, there is Clint Eastwood and Charleston Heston, but there’s also Justin Bieber and ALL those guys on the Disney Channel. I know, I know, Bieber is Canadian, but Californication is a communicable disease. They all got the “clap!”

America made a “yuge” right turn in 2016. Liberals are slow to pick up on that, and that’s a good thing. Donald Trump is using their Saul Alinsky Bible against them. They’re too stupid to know that because they never READ Alinsky’s book, someone read it TO them. One sound bite at a time. Always remember, the ”Z” generation is in Middle School right now. They’re a bit different. When they come of age the solution for all these Millennials will involve a wall, and ”up against, ” and something about “mother,” At that point America WILL be great again. Go ahead punks. Make THEIR day!

Trump Just Slayed Democrats and NaySayer’s

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 3:21pm
Yesterday’s meetings have all but guaranteed that President Trump will run again in 2020, and likely be re-elected.

He is too redneck, unsophisticated, bombastic, loudmouthed, and egomaniacal. His hair is all wrong; he is rich because he stole homes from the poor old ladies in New Jersey. Remember? For over two-years, we have heard virtually nothing positive from either the Democrats or the main-stream media regarding this president. Morning Joe (Joe Scarborough on his morning show at MSNBC) said as late as yesterday morning that Trump could not possibly be successful in Singapore because he had “not studied properly” for this summit. In fact, these “brilliant” political prognosticators eluded to the President embarrassing America because of his amateurish approach to the much publicized and heralded summit with Kim Jong Un.

This morning, most if not all of your morning programs will be dedicated to discussing this meeting and attempting to “find fault” with the Presidents success. Back to “Morning Joe” and his idiocy for a moment. These guys are slamming the President for being “too chummy” with Kim. They are spending more time on the Presidents criticism of Justin Trudeau of Canada and his comments from the other day than of the Presidents achievements yesterday in Singapore. If that is not bad enough, they are slamming Trump for not getting Kim Jong Un to agree to address his “human-rights” violations. Are these liberals really that stupid? The president and his team have a couple of hours worth of talks. I would think that investing that time in discussing the denuclearization process would be slightly more important for that moment in time. There will be many more meetings, and many more opportunities to discuss imprisonments and human rights.

Toss the dissatisfaction of the successes from yesterday out by the media, and what you actually have is a highly successful meeting by a President that nobody could have predicted just a short 3-4 months ago. In fact, nobody was predicting a meeting, much less a productive and successful session.

On the homefront, what in reality transpired yesterday was this. President Donald J. Trump destroyed the Democrats, the left wing media and the naysayer’s descriptions of the President’s political maturity. It is also killing the leftwing media that Trump accomplished something that no Democrat President was ever able too. This bragging, loudmouthed neophyte was able to bring a North Korean Dictator to the peace table and have talks about actually disarming their nuclear program, then on top of all that, get them to sign an agreement to do so.

Kim Jong Un has agreed to make his nation nuclear weapons free.

Yesterday’s meetings have all but guaranteed that President Trump will run again in 2020, and likely be re-elected. Yesterday’s sessions also more than likely promised that Trump would be nominated for a Nobel Prize. Between these two accomplishments and the amount of news surrounding this event, you can also take away that it cannot but help the GOP this fall in the mid-terms.

Conclusions:

The ingredients that the left forgot to consider were these; Trump has an enormous amount of self-confidence. Trump has an ego that will not allow him to fail at most anything he does. While the left-wing media seeks to criticize the President for passing along compliments to the young Dictator, the part that they are all missing is that the President was using praise as a means of winning over the Dictator to make it easier to negotiate with him.

The second fact that the media is being very disingenuous about is; President Trump repeated over and over again that this is only the beginning of what will be years worth of talks. These talks in the future will cover many, many areas of concern, not just nuclear arms.

Patriots; Don’t be alarmed, it is time to celebrate. What you just witnessed was the very reason we elected this President. He is tough, he is unafraid to take chances, and he is very talented in ways we are just learning about. Yes, there have been times when he has said things that caused concern for me personally. I confess the “Rocket Man” comment bothered me, but in the end, the President was correct to say and do what he did. I applaud his stamina; I applaud his determination and his patriotism to our nation. Now if he will just tell the Democrats to sit down, shut up, and let the big boys run the show, we will all be better off.

Constipation Is an Advantage When Flying American Airlines

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 10:30am

Members of any airline frequent flyer club have seen the benefits of membership gradually erode under the relentless assault of airline bean–counters. The yearly mileage necessary to qualify for even the lowest membership level has increased dramatically over the years.

At the same time the member’s accumulated miles have been devalued as the mileage cost of free tickets has been increased to a minimum of 25,000 miles. Other perks, like upgrades and airport lounge passes, associated with climbing up the frequent flyer status ladder, have also been reduced or eliminated.

Milt Priggee, Oak Harbor, WA

The only airline club where the benefits have remained largely intact is the Mile–High Club and now American Airlines has declared war on that collection of randy flyers.

On AA’s new 737–MAX aircraft one would have to be Tyrion Lannister to have even the remotest hope of conducting an induction ceremony, and even then it would be very close. Passengers flying on the remodeled 737 would do well to gate–check their claustrophobia.

The new bathrooms on that aircraft are so small the usage experience more closely resembles that of a human cannonball than it does of relieving oneself. At the circus the human cannonball knows, given the dimensions of the gun tube, once inside he’s not going to have the luxury of repositioning himself.

The same is true for the cruelly–named 737–MAX.

The ‘MAX’ bathroom is 25 percent smaller than the telephone booths flyers have grown accustomed to using in the past. The new comfort coffins are so tight it is impossible to turn around once inside with the door closed. This presents no problem for women or men who want to keep their options open, but for the rest of us, we’re going to have to commit before we close the door.

Plus–sized passengers may require the assistance of Crisco or their fellow passengers to get in and get out.

And that’s not where the similarity to Ringling Brothers ends.

Just as the human cannonball is expelled by the expansion of hot gases trapped behind him in the tube, passengers following an exiting flyer too closely into the aircraft lavatory may find themselves wishing they could eject when encountering a large hot aroma trapped in a small confined space.

These indignities are only confined to healthy passengers. Nervous flyers or those with sensitive stomachs would do well to start practicing hurling while standing erect, because it is impossible to bend over in those bathrooms. This will be no problem for drunks and three–year–olds, but for rest of us abandon all hope of privacy as you are forced to leave the door open to bend over and be sick.

I always assumed when it came to mobile evacuation nothing could top the combination of indignity and excitement one experienced using a bus bathroom while the vehicle was in motion. It would have made perfect sense for Greyhound to install timers in those ‘restrooms’ so passengers could try and remain seated as long as the average bull rider.

Yet even in the worst bus bathroom I never got the impression the company had it in for me. Not so with American Airlines. Only a corporation that’s part of a lock–step oligopoly could exhibit such utter contempt for the comfort and dignity of its customers. To say nothing of its own reputation.

Starbucks shut the entire company down to atone for its sin after offending two black guys that weren’t even customers. American Airlines insults its entire customer base while laughing all the way to the bank.

The indignity doesn’t stop after you’ve finished your business. The sink in this washcoffin is so tiny passengers can only wash one hand at a time. It would have made more sense to dispense with the sink altogether in favor of waterless hand cleaner and devote the added room to the preservation of male kneecaps.

Flight attendants are on the passenger’s side in this dispute. The two shoebox bathrooms are located across from each other in the rear. Attendants have discovered that if doors open simultaneously, the two frequently snag, forming an impromptu wall that traps them in the galley.

Our loss in comfort and privacy is naturally American’s gain. Smaller bathrooms, thinner seats and less distance between seats allow more passengers. AA has increased the load from 160 passengers to 172 with the letterbox–sized bathrooms.

Flyers like me who avoid AA aren’t safe either. Airlines are in figurative race to the bottom and I fear my United will soon adopt AA’s malign one–holer design. The only bright spot I can see — and limited to longer flights — is the reduction in bathroom size might force American to institute a corresponding reduction is flight attendant size. In the interest of safety, of course.

Dance Monkey Dance

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 7:33am

Dance Monkey Dance. I didn’t write this, don’t know who did, but they nailed it. We are all so tired of Hollywood celebrities using their manufactured fame to try to influence national opinion. De’Niro had a brilliant career. So good an actor he seemed to shapeshift in Godfather II. Forgot he was READING lines and started making them up.

Standing before a crowd of masturbating monkeys, he vomited curses upon our president. I expect that from Californication. What disturbs me is when people on the east of the San Andreas Fault line listen. All liberals follow the herd. That’s what they do. Lions use that to stay fed. We’re the lions now, they are the herd. DeNiro is the slow one. Eat him first.

*******************************

Dear Hollywood celebrities,

You exist for my entertainment. Some of you are great eye candy. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you can scare the crap out of me. Others make me laugh. But you all have one thing in common, you only have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it.

You make your living pretending to be someone else, playing dress up. You live in a make-believe world in front of a camera. And often when you are away from one too. Your entire existence depends on my patronage.
I’ll crank the organ grinder; you dance.

I don’t really care where you stand on issues. Honestly, your stance matters far less to me than that of my neighbor. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again.

Make me laugh, or cry. Scare me. But realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment.

So, shut your pie hole and dance, monkey Dance!
Sincerely…America!

What to Watch in Tuesday’s Primaries: Trump Looms in GOP Races as Democrats Eye Midterms

Tue, 06/12/2018 - 11:41pm

Five states hold primaries Tuesday—Maine, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia. Democrats will decide on their candidates for a handful of House seats they hope to win in November, while Republicans will determine the political cost of speaking out against President Donald Trump.

Here are five things to watch in the voting Tuesday:

When will Maine know who won its primaries for governor and Congress?

It probably won’t be on Tuesday night, according to Maine elections officials. Tuesday’s primaries are Maine’s first experiment with ranked-choice voting, a system that allows voters to choose candidates in order of preference.

Republicans cheer Trump’s North Korea summit, but worry Kim Jong Un is bluffing

Tue, 06/12/2018 - 11:15pm

Top Republican lawmakers acknowledged Tuesday that the Trump administration has work to do to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons, despite dictator Kim Jong Un‘s pledge to pursue “complete denuclearization.”

Notable GOP lawmakers applauded the summit in Singapore between Kim and President Donald Trump, calling it an important step toward peace in Asia. However, they warned that Pyongyang has proven reluctant to give up its nuclear ambitions in the past despite similar pledges.

Republican lawmakers showed caution about North Korea’s willingness to dismantle its nuclear weapons and suggested Trump still faces a long process to get a concrete commitment. Some experts told CNBC that Trump and Kim’s agreement appeared vague and leaves possible sticking points between Washington and Pyongyang. Those potential disagreements include the definition of denuclearization.

The Korean War Ended With A Handshake

Tue, 06/12/2018 - 8:08am

The Korean War ended with a handshake

After inheriting a war bequeathed to him by his grandfather, Kim Jong Un extended his hand to a Donald J Trump and began the process of bringing peace, and stability to Asia. This showed that Kim has more on the ball than all the leaders in the Middle East. Let’s include the Pope in that last statement. Two men sat down and said, “This ain’t working,” and began the process of untying the thousands of knots binding understanding for decades.

Russia and China stood back and let the historic meeting play out. Even they realized that whatever came out of that meeting was better than what we had. Trump had called Mr. Un “Rocket Man, ” and Kim responded by threatening to drop a bomb on his bedroom. Both men extended their hands and took the first step toward understanding.

Asia is the oldest civilization in the world. China built a ”leave me alone” wall thousands of years ago. I can hear naysayers claiming the Middle East being older. The Middle East isn’t civilized YET! No leader there can raise his hand and say, ”Stop!” and it stops.

Kim inherited a bag of howling cats. Communism didn’t work, but that’s all he had to work with. Trump had his own bag of cats. No matter what he did, the liberals would find fault with him. Kim killed people put in place to kill him. Trump killed the specter of the failed Obama administration. Liberals still pray in Obama’s direction five times a day.

Neither Kim nor Trump created the situation they addressed. They just ended it! Will it be perfect? Probably not, but it’s a step in the right direction. Both men will have to sell it to their respective people’s. Trump with his usual flair, Kim may opt for a fire sale, but hopefully, for all the Korean people it will be Gangnam Style!

Two Acts of Treason…Obama Style

Mon, 06/11/2018 - 10:11pm

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

As I write this we are anxiously awaiting with baited breath to see how successful President Trump is with Kim Jong-un at the NOKO Summit and to see if this week’s release of the ‘supposed’ final investigative report into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal points to her finally being called to task. However, there are still two other ongoing investigations of note that should be addressed and these both go directly to top of the ever-growing Democratic trash heap…landing squarely, as they should, at the feet of former President Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

U.S. Code 2381: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

And to this affect, last week the ‘Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations’ Chairman Rob Portman (R-Ohio) released to the public their findings* regarding certain questionable actions of former President Barack HUSSEIN Obama. In effect proving that with malice intended, Obama lied to both Congress and to ‘We the People’ about certain key elements of the Iranian nuclear deal itself (the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action aka JCPOA) as well as about his secretly trying to give Iran access to the U.S. banking and financial systems in order to allow them to convert billions of dollars in assets into Euros. And he did so as part of his desperate attempt to seal the Iranian nuclear deal even while U.S. sanctions against Iran where still in place…in other words the U.S. be damned.

First some background information. One of the ‘supposed’ key components of Obama’s (very bad) nuclear deal was that it would see a “near-ban” on the Iranian regime having any access whatsoever to our U.S. banking and financial systems. However, as per the committee’s findings, on his orders Obama officials “pushed” both the Treasury and State Departments into working behind the scenes to help Iran…the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism…gain access to much needed monies while he and his cronies spewed rhetoric to Congress that Iran would never gain access to any part of said banking or financial systems.

“Iranian banks will not be able to clear US dollars through New York, hold correspondent account relationships with US financial institutions, or enter into financing arrangements with US banks.” So said Democrat Adam Szubin, the Department of the Treasury’s acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence during the Obama years…but guess what he lied while Obama of course smiled.

And with those assurances not withstanding, on February 24, 2016, Obama’s Department of State “instructed” the Department of the Treasury to issue the required license**…a permit if you will…to let Iran “sidestep” in-place sanctions for as long as it took them to convert funds through an American bank. And after issuing said license…a license which including giving Iran unlimited future access to their deposits as long as the license was in place… these Obama folks denied to Congress…lied to Congress…that it had done so.

So what do the funds in question actually consist of…how about $5.7 billion of Iran’s overseas reserves garnered from oil sales and from the still “frozen” 1979 sanctions… sanctions derived from monies paid for by the then Shah of Iran’s government in regards to a $400 million delivery of fighter jets from the U.S…remain the sanctions held in Oman’s Bank Muscat. Frozen in rials…Oman’s currency… which are difficult to convert…led Iran wanting to convert them “briefly” into U.S. dollars and then into Euros…something Obama was more than willing to do if Iran “signed” on the nuclear deal dotted line.

However, Obama’s plan failed when officials from the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) “encouraged” (threatened is more like it) two U.S. banks to act as the intermediaries and carry out the converting of funds. But thankfully both banks refused to take part in what they claimed could cause a potential serious regulatory backlash “due to compliance, reputational, and legal risks associated with doing business with Iran.” Translation…the bank’s hierarchy were smart enough to know that what was actually being asked of them amounted to treason.

And now with this report we find that official Department of State emails were found admitting that the Obama administration had indeed overstepped their bounds and “exceeded our JCPOA commitments.” And to make matters worse, the Senate report also disclosed that Obama’s people, including “friendly” bank regulators, put on what they referred to as more than 200 “roadshows” around the world where they “encouraged” foreign financial institutions to do business with Iran “as long as the rest of the world left the United States out of it”…at least kept us out on the surface that is…while assuring said financial institutions who did so that they would get nothing more than a mere slap on the wrist for violating U.S. sanctions if caught.

Nothing like the thrill of covertly helping Obama’s brethren screw the U.S. it seems.

So let’s summarize the main infractions of this first investigation of note…and know that said actions described herein do, I believe, reach the definition of treason as per U.S. Code 2381, in that they give “aid and comfort” to the enemy. First, Obama and crew told Congress it would not allow Iran access to U.S. financial institutions under any conditions…which we now know was a lie. Second, the Department of the Treasury on orders from the Department of State issued a special license that would allow Iran to do exactly that no matter that they unsuccessfully tried to “pressure” two U.S. banks into helping the regime get their much wanted monies. And third, all parties involved lied to both Congress and ‘We the People’…parties from Obama on down…about their actions and ‘supposed’ inactions, and continue to do so even though they have been caught.

And all the above…and much more…was done ever so discreetly with it never intending to be disclosed. And when it comes to treason, intended actions are just as damning as actions successfully taken. And loyal Democrats are now circling the Obama wagon to chime in that what’s the big deal as no actual U.S. laws were broken since no actual transactions took place. In fact, Treasury officials loyal to Obama claim these transactions would have been legal if they had taken place because the terms of the JCPOA were “consistent with Iran’s position, allowing the Government of Iran to engage in ‘transfers,’ ‘foreign exchange (including Rial related transactions),’ and the ‘purchase or acquisition by the Government of Iran of US bank notes.'”

Really, pray tell how is knowingly and willingly aiding in the releasing of monies that would assuredly go into helping the enemy commit even more acts of terrorism not be treason…simply it is. And don’t ever forget that no U.S. president, whether they be Democrat or Republican, believed any of those “frozen” monies should be returned to those sorts who helped to overthrew the then western aligned government of the Shah or to any of those who now continue to chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” time and time again…until Barack Hussein Obama that is.

And that leads me to another in-our-face act of treason willingly committed by then President Obama and crew.

The Trump administration has now traced back some… but not all…of the $1.7 billion ($400 million from originally frozen Iranian assets plus $1.3 billion in interest) Obama actually did release to Iran…monies that were indeed in affect ransom…a bribe…monies paid for the release of four American hostages…hostages who not so surprisingly just “happened” to be released on the very same day the monies arrived via an unmarked cargo plane in the dead of night back on January 17, 2016.

See video of ‘Obama’s Cash Ransom Plane in Iran’ here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=51&v=BwqeCwJTTyk

Now remember how the Obama controlled Department of Justice tried to get us to believe that it is not a federal crime to “pay” a ransom, that it’s just a crime to “receive” ransom. Well that’s simply not true as it surely is a crime when the payer…as in an American president…knew well that government-paid ransom is barred under U.S. law, and that those monies would in turn be monies Iran transferred over to some of the many terrorist groups they finance…groups like Hezbollah and the Iraqi Shia terrorist group Kata’ib Hizballah (KH) to name just two.

And this act of paying ransom adds to the fact that America’s 44th president was not on America’s side. And that’s in addition to the fact that paying ransom only encourages kidnappers and terrorists to take even more hostages, which is exactly what Iran has done since Obama paid them the monies they demanded.

But as for the legalities of why this deal is treason…while the White House contended that the payment did nothing but settle the above mentioned decades-long what they called a “financial dispute,” and that the settlement was fully disclosed in January, neither Obama nor White House officials made mention that the $400 million arrived in Iran at the same time as the hostages were freed. Nor did they mention that normally a bank transfer would be used for that type of deal…if said deal was indeed legitimate that is…instead these miscreants used the excuse that since Congress banned dollar transfers to Iran our government was “forced” to buy foreign currency…as in Swiss francs, euros and other foreign currencies…with those currencies then being transferred to Iran in cash.

So while the cargo plane was unmarked, and while the monies were in foreign currencies they were still paid and substituted for American cash…and all this was kept secret from ‘We the People’ and would have remained so if not for the fact that The Wall Street Journal broke the story almost eight months later on August 2, 2016. But why keep this payment secret from the American public if indeed this deal was on the up-and-up…as in monies paid for a purchase not yet delivered. And why do Obama’s minions continue to insist that the U.S. did the right thing by his settling this almost 40-year old “issue”…especially since the Iranians claimed then and continue to claim now that the monies were indeed a ransom payment made.

And so it all boils down to the fact that this deal was but one of Obama’s many traitorous actions…the Taliban 5 trade for American deserter Beau Bergdahl quickly comes to mind as yet another…and dare we not forget the nightmare that was Benghazi. Yet even to this day islamic-condoners and those of the uber bleeding heart liberal persuasion continue to say that, “It was their money. It belonged to the Iranian government.”…the fact remains that when Barack HUSSEIN Obama keeps something major from the American public and then lies about it even when caught, you just know that “there’s something rotten in the state of Denmark” as the old saying goes.

So by his giving “aid and comfort” to the enemy on both of the accounts I stated, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is guilty of treason…and in my so humble opinion should be given either a bullet or a rope as his one and only choice of punishment. No “get out of jail free” card must again be issued as it was with Benghazi and with the Taliban 5 trade, and most surely no simple fine should be the sole punishment adjudicated. And as to a prison sentence being yet another option that U.S. Code 2381 provides, I, and I’m sure countless others, do not want even one dime of our hard-earned taxpayer dollars being spent on keeping a traitor…on keeping Obama…alive…alive for decades let alone mere years.

Like I said…a bullet or a rope will be more than enough to suffice for his crimes committed, after all if it was good enough for Benedict Arnold it’s good enough for the traitor that is Barack HUSSEIN Obama…case closed.
