Did you know that 53 percent of Americans are either very or somewhat worried about the federal government monitoring or invading their privacy? 24 percent are not too worried, 22 percent are not at all worried and 1 percent don’t know if they are worried. They probably live in one of the legalized pot states.
Did you know that according to Joseph Bannister, former IRS investigator, there were 1.3 million cases of identity theft by illegal aliens from 2011-16? In 2017, an additional 1.2 million cases of tax refund fraud occurred as illegal aliens used someone else’s Social Security number and filed income tax returns – and got rebates. These represent only the ones who were caught… but Bannister says zero confirmed cases were referred to the Department of Justice or the investigative branch of the IRS for prosecution.
Evidently, you have to be an American citizen to be prosecuted for violating IRS laws. If one of us stole someone else’s identity to get a job or a credit card, or if we filed a phony tax return to get a refund and got caught, we’d be in jail.
That idea tends to support the liberal progressive Democrat belief that illegal aliens are entitled to more consideration by government than Americans born in this country. Dreamers (DACA) are idolized by Democrats.
The IRS is run by liberals. Most government bureaucrats are liberal. When Lois Lerner, director of the Exempt Organizations Unit (501 (c) (3) at IRS, took the Fifth and refused to testify in a Congressional Committee Hearing, Congress has no control over that agency… or any other, if the FBI and Department of Justice are any indication.
Is it any wonder that Americans have no confidence in government? All government seems capable of doing is creating chaos!
Interestingly, a lot of brainiacs who spend their days looking out of think tank windows believe that chaos provides the quickest road to defeat American nationalism and is a quick road to a collectivist new world order. It is well known that people, especially voters, cannot think straight in the midst of chaos. Since Democrats have no viable political platform for the 2018 elections, it appears they have opted for chaos… thus James Comey, Robert Mueller, RussiaBait, etc.
A lot happened in this week’s news that pushes the “create chaos” meter forward.
This week’s news announced that senior management levels of our taxpayer-funded intelligence agencies have established their own set of rules (and possibly coordinate with rogue intelligence agents around the world) to remove from office a duly elected constitutional President. The Deep State makes a joke of the Constitution they took an Oath to defend from enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Isn’t there a penalty for a violation of Oath of Office?
We will likely never know because of a (rare) factual answer provided by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on MSNBC about whether President Trump’s investigation into the Deep State was taking on America’s intelligence agencies.
“You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you,” Senator Schumer said, smiling.
Looking at the evidence (not just opinions, but hard evidence) of the firing of Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe a week ago, the FBI seems to think it gets to make its own rules and each agent is free to interpret them and also decide if they will follow them. Constitutionally, however, they are required to follow the rules of the Department of Justice (if anyone is there to enforce them). One would hope the DOJ follows and enforces the laws as defined by our Constitution, but there is little evidence it’s being applied to elitists and intelligence operatives.
Also in this week’s news, after President Trump signed a budget that included a giant deficit and then placed a huge tariff penalty on Chinese imports, the stock market dropped like a rock and ended the week down more than 7 percent. The market is still far ahead of where it was when Trump took office and the GDP maintains a 3 percent growth level for the first time in many years, but this kind of market reaction is unsettling, to say the least.
Are you aware that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s family (wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell) owns a major Hong Kong-based shipping company, Foremost Maritime Corporation, that delivers Chinese goods to America? Was Trump sending the McConnells a hidden message? Whatever his purpose, he enraged his conservative base – and rightfully so. Be patient. There is a chess game going on here.
Millennials and other children learned that Mark Zuckerberg, creator of their personal ego mirror, Facebook, has been sharing their “personal” data (which they post on the worldwide web by choice) with every kind of hoodlum, worldwide. Like Lois Lerner, Zuckerberg thinks he should be the one to determine which political views are made available to the public. He’s in trouble.
In Austin, TX, a 24-year old and very attractive young man with a gentle smile placed bombs on people’s doorsteps – or took them to Federal Express – to kill and maim complete strangers. Neighbors say he was raised by good parents who were very involved in his life and that the family seemed happy and normal in every way.
Did the chaos get to him? So much of our chaotic news and entertainment and computer and cell phone games involve violence! Or was he a victim of the feminist drive to remove male dominant traits from boys and replace them with feminine traits (“either change or take Ritalin”)? Girls are easier to handle. We will never get the answer to that question.
Thousands of mostly young people attended a March for our Lives protest in Washington, D.C., yesterday. They demand stricter gun controls in reaction to the high school shootings in Florida three weeks ago where 17 lives were lost. There were voter registration booths at this function and at 800 other protests scheduled around the country yesterday, according to Stephen Gutowski, a reporter for the Washington Free Beacon. Now why do you suppose they wanted to register voters during these protests?
If you want to know for which political perspective these protests were organized, you need only know that those who are financially supporting them include Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, George Clooney, and other well-known liberal progressive Democrats. The dollars provided also helped organize the huge effort to remove guns from the hands of Americans. I refer you to my News With Views article on the Florida shooting and gun control.
Since becoming Gun Free Zones, students in our schools have become helpless potential victims for the mentally depraved and people angered beyond reason with life in general. These people are free to walk into any school and start shooting. No one is there to stop them because schools are “Gun Free” zones.
You cannot fault kids or their parents for wanting something done to make schools safe again! America’s children are entitled to safe schools!
Who started the concept of Gun Free Zones in our schools?
Former Vice President Joe Biden, a liberal progressive Democrat, introduced the Gun-Free School Zones Act which was signed into law in November of 1990. The Bill prevents any person from knowingly possessing a firearm in a school zone. Joe probably has a Facebook page which he believes is being held in strict confidence by Mark Zuckerberg, too. The Democrats think he would be a good candidate for President in 2020?
I’m waiting for people to tell me why these students aren’t protesting about kids who kill far more people while driving and texting than school shootings do. In 2014, 42 percent of teens said they texted while driving. More than half of all road traffic deaths — averaging 3,287 per day — occur among young adults.
I’d like to know when they are going to raise the driving age to 21 or force stricter laws on families with children when they buy a car. Perhaps they could make an engine that automatically turns off when a cell phone is activated in a car?
Moreover, the school shooting deaths are a tiny percentage of the killing of unborn babies by Planned Parenthood. The 2015-16 report shows 328,348 abortions performed by Planned Parenthood; in 2016, nine children were killed in school shootings. Further, Taxpayers who oppose abortion are forced to give Planned Parenthood $500 million a year… but opposing death by abortion doesn’t get the guns out of American hands.
Perhaps we should call for demonstrations against anyone under age 21 having sex so unwanted pregnancies and resultant dead babies can be eliminated. If such a law were passed, it would be just as effective as a law that takes guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens. Criminals will always get their hands on illegal guns just as healthy teenagers will find a way to have sex if they have not been taught the discipline of how – and why – to avoid it.
The list of problems goes on and on. How about some solutions?
For example, how do we get rid of sanctuary cities?
If the Congress really wanted to get rid of sanctuary cities they could pass a law stating that no city (incorporated or unincorporated) or county or state can declare any population center a sanctuary without a vote of the people. If this were the law of the land, there would be very few sanctuary cities. Congress doesn’t want to eliminate sanctuary cities or it would do so. Your County Commissioners could do the same for your own county.
How about problems at Veterans Administration Hospitals?
Recruit physicians in the private sector to serve one day a week (weekends included) at VA hospitals. Won’t that be expensive? No. Rather than paying them a wage, have them multiply the number of patients they treat by the amount of their usual per patient charge in the civilian world. Let them deduct the total annual amount from their income taxes. Physicians always seek good tax shelters. This provides a good one and is easily verifiable via existing VA patient computer records already in place.
As liberal progressive Democrats keep heaping more and more reasons for chaos upon your head, just keep focusing on finding solutions.
Avoid chaos. They want things to be so chaotic you can’t think. When you can’t think,, you can easily be defeated. Remember Joshua and what a small group of men did to a large defensive force at Jericho?
The Lord gave us a good example here on how to use chaos to bring down an enemy that is much larger than you. And remember, the name “Trump” comes from those trumpets the Lord told Joshua to blow as his small contingent marched around the walls of Jericho… and the walls fell.
Those who want to end American nationalism in favor of world government are using chaos against us. They want you to throw your arms in the air and give up — let your walls come tumbling down. Ignore them and avoid chaos.
You also might want to spend some time thinking about how Donald Trump’s behavior in response to liberal chaos creates its own force. When he speaks, liberal Democrats become chaotic.
There is a purpose for all things.
