Promise is a big important word, it either makes something, or it breaks everything. Remember when your loved one made you a promise and then broke it, how did you feel? I’ll tell you how you felt. You felt betrayed. Once trust is broken, it’s almost impossible to mend. Things after that are never the same. Trust and honor are the most important qualities one can possess. Americans have been betrayed for decades. Mr. Trump, you gave us hope to dream again, don’t backtrack on your promises.
I am so very pleased with many of the appointments made by our new president. The people he will have close to him are brilliant and will follow his policies and agenda. I am also glad that President Trump doesn’t have a problem saying, “You’re fired,” because there are a couple he’s appointed, or who are on the list, that are anathema to Trump’s administration and the people who supported him. Probably 90% of Americans don’t know the difference, but researchers like myself certainly do.
Hillary Clinton Corruption
I can see that immediately going after Hillary Clinton could set up an Obama pardon, and I also can see that it would start off the new administration with more hatred from the socialist left, as well as disgust from the socialist right. However, President Trump, you made a promise! There are many reasons she should be thoroughly investigated by your attorney general and your new Department of Justice appointees.
1. No one is above the law. Are there different laws for multi-millionaires than there are for regular Joe’s? I certainly could give you many examples of far less done by ordinary folks who ended up in prison.
2. The country’s democrat voters don’t know what Hillary has done, and they need to learn about it. A full investigation and exposure by the MSM would inform them of just how corrupt the entire Clinton cabal truly has been.
3. The very extreme radical democratic party needs to be destroyed, or they will destroy us.
You campaigned on this promise, and people voted for you because of your promises, and we’re counting on you keeping them .
Secretary of State
Remember Mr. Trump when you read us the story of the “the snake?” What Mitt Romney said and did when you were campaigning was venomous. Don’t make the mistake of letting that snake into our house.
I would strongly urge our new president to refrain from naming someone like Romney for the position of Secretary of State. Romney is an affront to all Trump voters. Trump’s supporters view the former governor as someone who was so very damaging to the Trump campaign, that they cannot possibly understand rewarding the man. The real Mitt Romney is not someone we want anywhere near the new administration. Watch ‘Willard’ Mitt Romney’s anti-Trump speech at ‘Hinckley’ Institute.
1. Remember Barry Goldwater? Mitt Romney went to the 1964 Republican National Convention when his moderate father battled conservative Barry Goldwater for the party nomination over issues of civil rights and ideological extremism. The family ended up supporting Lyndon Baines Johnson for president. This is Romney’s training, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he voted for Hillary.
2. Remember Romney Care in Massachusetts? It was the blueprint for Obamacare!
3. After he claimed a pro-life conversion, Willard Mitt Romney
• authorized tax-funded surgical elective abortion two years after he claimed he was pro-life.
• advocated grisly research on embryos after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
• nominated a pro-abort Democrat judge after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
• gave Planned Parenthood a permanent seat on a state board after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
• bragged that he would continue to defend abortion “rights” after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
To top it off, the Pro-Life Family Movement discredit themselves again and again. These groups and people repeat the false claim of Romney being pro-life after he:
• funded abortion statewide through taxpayer monies.
• opposed a Massachusetts Defense of Marriage Constitutional amendment.
• said homosexuals should be allowed in the boy scouts.
• officially celebrated “Gay-Straight Youth Pride Day.”
• sat on the board of directors for a leading purveyor of pornography without opposing the corporation’s exploitation of women.
• supported Bill Clinton’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” and thinks it worked and shouldn’t be changed.
• boosted funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten.
• opposes a ban on homosexual scoutmasters.
• forced Catholic Charities, the nation’s #1 adoption and foster care service to place children with same sex couples even though he was under no legal obligation to do so.
• passed over Republican lawyers for three quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced and nominated two open homosexuals.
• supports passage at the state level of the Employment non-discrimination Act which would force churches and other religious organizations against the beliefs of their faith, to hire homosexuals and transvestites or face criminal fines and prosecution.
On the second amendment, Romney supported the Brady Bill, and has stated in past campaigns that he is a proponent of gun control and fully supports a ban on assault weapons. He enacted a ban in Massachusetts on many so called “military style assault weapons.” Romney stated, “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”
On United Nations Agenda 21, Romney is all for it and enacted Smart Growth in the State of Massachusetts while Governor.
Lou Dobbs reminded us of Romney’s excursion overseas in 2012 and what a mess he made of the trip, offending every leader he met. Not good for a potential Secretary of State!
Here’s the short video
Remember what Huey Long said, “Do you know what you have when you reward an enemy? A rewarded enemy.”
President Trump, Mr. Romney doesn’t match up with your policies and promises at all.
United Nations Ambassador
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley to be the US ambassador to the United Nations. Haley, who is the daughter of Indian immigrants, is serving as her home state’s first female and first minority governor.
Haley endorsed and campaigned for pro-amnesty supporter, Marco Rubio.
Globalist Haley criticized Trump’s hateful and violent rhetoric, linking it to last year’s Charleston shooting. She has called Trump dangerous and said he’s promoting hate, and she gets rewarded with an appointment as UN Ambassador.
Perhaps Trump is rewarding SC for voting for him by removing their governor. The Lt. Governor, Henry McMaster, will take over the remainder of Haley’s second term.
Huey Long again comes to mind.
I was thrilled that Michelle Rhee was no longer in consideration for education, but now her evil twin is taking her place. Donald Trump promised to get rid of common core in education. Betsy DeVos has been appointed by Trump as Education Secretary, and what I want to know is why we need an Ed. Secretary when Trump said he was going to abolish the Department of Education.
The Department of Education (DOE) was created by Jimmy Carter with the full support of Newt Gingrich, one of the few Republicans who voted for it, and he thwarted Reagan’s efforts to abolish it.
DeVos is the daughter-in-law of Amway founder, Richard DeVos, and her brother is the infamous Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, the private military company whose contractors were responsible for the killing of 17 Iraqi civilians in 2007, among other incidents. Breitbart reports that the DeVos families have donated to the Clinton Foundation.
Researcher Rachel Tabachnik noted in a 2011 Alternet profile of the DeVos family’s school privatization efforts that after voucher initiatives were consistently defeated by voters, the DeVos family shifted their strategy to a legislative one, and began spending millions on both campaign contributions and lobbying.
Like many privatization advocates, DeVos has resisted efforts to hold charter schools and non-public schools to the same standards reformers apply to private schools. As Chalkbeat notes, since she and her husband helped get Michigan’s charter school law pass, they have “worked to protect charters from additional regulation.” That may be why there has been little action in the state to improve or close low-performing charter schools.
When Michigan lawmakers this year were considering a measure that would have added oversight for charter schools in Detroit, members of the DeVos family poured $1.45 million into legislators’ campaign coffers — an average of $25,000 a day for seven weeks. Oversight was not included in the final legislation.
Like Rhee, Betsy DeVos has adamantly supported Common Core and she’s even a board member of Jeb Bush’s Common Core supporting education foundation as well as being one of his biggest donors. She is also closely aligned to TN Sen. Lamar Alexander, which should give any education freedom lover nightmares. I wrote a five part article on Lamar back in May of 2013, and included the 1989 Governor’s Conference speech he gave which should scare the socks off any of today’s parents. Lamar is the same man who promised he was “ending the national school board” by rushing a huge federal ed bill into law, that gave the U.S. Ed. Secretary direct control over what children learned and when. Totally unconstitutional, this decision belongs to the states.
These people are a bunch of control freaks who promise “local control,” but whose every effort is directed in the opposite direction.
Molly Hensley-Clancy wrote that DeVos claims now to be against Common Core, but she pitted her big money against the legislative battles to reject Common Core. It has also been reported that DeVos’s husband personally called state senators in Michigan to get them to vote against a Common Core REPEAL BILL.
Trump’s transition team reported that his “discussion with DeVos was focused on the Common Core mission, and setting higher national standards and promoting the growth of school choice across the nation.” I wanted to scream when I heard those words! “Setting higher nations standards” is code for Common Core. National standards are what Common Core was designed to be. That’s how we got this rotten filthy Common Core.
Tying so-called Common Core “higher standards” to school choice is double-speak for “requiring all private schools to teach this filthy, brain destroying Common Core by using the control mechanism of tests.” Teaching to the test is why so many good teachers have left their profession or retired.
When Betsy DeVos acclaims “school choice,” she’s pushing an ed agenda that includes requiring all the schools that take voucher money to use state-determined curriculum, LIKE COMMON CORE!
She has used her millions of dollars in the past to do this. She’ll use the power as ed secretary to do the same thing.
If Trump wants to increase school choice, (which I’m against because federal regulations will follow every penny of tax dollars), and improve education for our children, he needs to send Betsy DeVos packing. Her forms of “school choice” replace one set of monopolies with another, both controlled. That’s not choice, choice is what we already have, she is out to destroy it.
And there’s more…
Betsy DeVos and her husband were honored guests at a recent ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economy and Social Services) anniversary banquet, the sponsor a University of Michigan BDS conference, where “kill the Jews” was chanted in Arabic. ACCESS founder, Ismael Ahmed, a supporter of Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad, headed a Medicaid fraud ring for pregnant Muslim women traveling to the U.S. to give birth.
Future Secretary of Education DeVos also funded anti-Israel, pro-Muslim curriculums – “Teach Mideast” and “Bridges at School” – developed by Muslim Brotherhood affiliates for American schools. The programs celebrate Muslim “culture” and history, provide Arabic language classes and arrange visits to Arab-Muslim countries.
Drain the Swamp means getting rid of this kind of cronyism. Betsy DeVos is a horrible choice. Read what she wrote in RollCall in 1997: “I know something about soft money, as my family is the largest single contributor of soft money to the national Republican Party. I have decided, however, to stop taking offense at the suggestion that we are buying influence. Now I simply concede the point. They are right. We do expect some things in return. My money gives me the right to influence politicians more than you can, peons.”
Really Betsy? You’re part of the cabal like Hillary who are wealthy enough that your voice counts, but ours doesn’t?
We sent a fighter to the White House and we expect him to appoint the same kind of personage to his cabinet, not the filthy phony status quo. We want the legacy of a conservative leader like Phyllis Schlafly who said plainly, “Back to real phonics, reading, writing, and arithmetic.”
Charters, vouchers and choice sound so good, but when you peel away the phony veneer, you see the rot beneath that the American people know nothing about.
President Trump is far more intelligent than I am, and always seems to have tricks up his sleeves, but his latest choices give me the willies. Don’t get me wrong, I love General Flynn, Senator Sessions, General Mattis, and even can go with Rep. Pompeo, but I want to know who is advising our new President on these latest choices.
Grassroots Americans who have been in the battle to save our Republic for multiple decades, have more knowledge and documentation than any of the so-called D.C. insiders. I so wish our new president would give us an hour of his time.
Pray for him, for protection, and especially for God’s divine wisdom and guidance, he needs it.
