There are Trump supporters who think he can do no wrong. Vocal, rabid and screw you if you don’t agree. Geez. I voted for Donald Trump. Yes, he has accomplished a great many things which have benefited millions of Americans.
However, that doesn’t mean we should turn a blind eye when we feel he has taken the wrong stand on an issue just because he’s Donald Trump. Let me give you an example. My July 8, 2019 column, Americans Shocked, Angered: Trump’s Latest GMO Executive Order, bought an avalanche of emails thanking me for making readers aware of things they didn’t know about Trump’s EO, GMOs and farm raised fish.
However, by accident I ran across reference to my column and in the comment section some woman proclaimed I’m a Trump hater and was trying to do a smear job on him. Huh? I guarantee you that woman didn’t read a single link in my column trying to educate her on how dangerous GMO foods are to the human body, livestock and the environment.
On another site featuring the EO Trump signed was a comment equally as stupid, “Lets face it efforts to undermine trump have been relentless . As an Australian I can not believe how your media all jump on the same band wagon to constantly criticize every move he makes.” When Trump makes a bad decision, it IS up to We the People to make him aware this is something that has to be reversed as it’s not in the best interests for the people in this country.
Another genius, “he is against these contaminated vaccines and bad food..so i am just not sure i am believing this. where is the proof? Mike I love ya but come on…seriously…..where’s the proof of this? another media outlet?” Where is the proof? Go read the EO Trump signed. Try doing some research instead of trying to kill the messenger.
There is yet another very dangerous move by the unconstitutional EPA that should scare the hell out of Americans. Chlorpyrifos; Final Order Denying Objections to March 2017 Petition Denial Order
“In this Order, EPA denies the objections to EPA’s March 29, 2017 order denying a 2007 petition from the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to revoke all tolerances and cancel all registrations for the insecticide chlorpyrifos. This order is issued under section 408(g)(2)(C) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) and constitutes final agency action on the 2007 petition. The objections were filed by Earthjustice on behalf of 12 public interest groups, the North Coast Rivers Alliance, and the States of New York, Washington, California, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, and Vermont.”
Chlorpyrifos was a new one for me so I did what I always do – spent my time combing the Internet for credible information on that killer pesticide.
July 19, 2019 – “Even though the pesticide chlorpyrifos has been linked to brain harm in children, it will not be banned in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday.The agency said data highlighting health concerns about the pesticide was “not sufficiently valid, complete or reliable,” and added that it would continue to monitor the safety of chlorpyrifos through 2022, The New York Times reported.
“In 2015, the Obama administration said it would ban chlorpyrifos after EPA studies showed that the pesticide could damage brain development in children. That ban was reversed by the Trump administration in 2017, which triggered legal challenges…
“”By allowing chlorpyrifos to stay in our fruits and vegetables, Trump’s EPA is breaking the law and neglecting the overwhelming scientific evidence that this pesticide harms children’s brains,” Patti Goldman, a lawyer for Earthjustice, said in a statement.”
So, in 2015, the EPA says that pesticide could damage brain development in children but a mere four years later gives the go ahead to potentially harm America’s children.
Common Pesticide “Disturbs” the Brains of Children, 2012, Scientific American: “Banned for indoor use since 2001, the effects of the common insecticide known as chlorpyrifos can still be found in the brains of young children now approaching puberty. A new study used magnetic imaging to reveal that those children exposed to chlorpyrifos in the womb had persistent changes in their brains throughout childhood.”
Poison Fruit –Dow Chemical Wants Farmers to Keep Using a Pesticide Linked to Autism and ADHD – This article is very important so I hope you can take the time to read it. This is why so many of us believe poisoned food from pesticides is one of the causes of many diseases and conditions in children – besides some vaccines.
Now, President Trump is not responsible for this reckless and dangerous move by the unconstitutional EPA but he sure as hell can invite the EPA top dog to the White House and tell him this is unacceptable. Under Trump’s administration a lot of unconstitutional regulations by the EPA are gone and he can get this reversed. White House switchboard: 202-456-1414
The reason I bring this up – besides trying to warn Americans about yet another pesticide killing us slowly (which is why I sacrifice to eat organic) is this headline:
“Trump’s advisers say he will be better positioned to crack down on spending and shrink or eliminate certain agencies after next year, particularly if Republicans regain control of the House of Representatives.
“But this second-term ambition is already sowing confusion about how the White House should approach the current slate of negotiations, in which some conservatives want Trump to push for spending restraint.
“Instead, Trump is advocating swiftly lifting the federal debt ceiling, which would allow for more spending and borrowing. Trump, who was once a fierce promoter of refusing to raise the debt ceiling without winning concessions, said the opposite on Friday, telling reporters that “it’s a sacred element of our country. They can’t use the debt ceiling to negotiate.”
Raising the debt ceiling is suicidal, President Trump. Yes, it’s a step in the right direction for you to broadcast shrinking or eliminating certain agencies but what would those be? Well, one must go to the U.S. Constitution to see exactly what spending is authorized by Congress: Art. 1, Sec. 8: Scope of Legislative Power
No where does it give Congress the authority to legislate education, the environment, health care, farming (until for the first time the federal government overstepped it’s legislative authority with the Agricultural Adjustment Act), foreign aid, humanitarian assistance to foreign countries or raping we the people to give OUR money to the BIS (Bank of International settlements), IMF (International Monetary Fund), World Bank, the UN, act as a bank or lender (student loans, bank or auto manufacturer bail outs), federal welfare in any form including food stamps. The latter being under the Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
Joseph Story, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833:
“Another not unimportant consideration is that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the state.”
HHS (Health and Human Services) is also unconstitutional as is the SBA (Small Business Administration). I can already hear the collective gasp. Most Americans alive today have been conditioned to accept all these unconstitutional cabinets and agencies (including the hundred I didn’t list for brevity) as necessary under big mother government. They are not.
Not many people might remember but two of Ronnie Reagan’s campaign promises were: Get rid of the unconstitutional Federal Department of Education and the SBA. Once elected those campaign promises blew away with the wind.
While campaigning for his doomed-to-lose bid for the presidency, Bob Dole said on Sept. 9, 1996, while in Georgia, “We’re going to cut out the Department of Education.” At that time, the GOP presidential platform read, in part:
“Our formula is as simple as it is sweeping: The federal government has no constitutional authority to be involved in school curricula or to control jobs in the workplace. That is why we will abolish the Department of Education, end federal meddling in our schools, and promote family choice at all levels of learning.
“We therefore call for prompt repeal of the Goals 2000 program and the School-To-Work Act of 1994, which put new federal controls, as well as unfunded mandates, on the States. We further urge that federal attempts to impose outcome- or performance-based education on local schools be ended.”
Of course, just the opposite has taken place and, in fact, the goals for creating the “New Communist Man” was given a huge boost with President Bush’s deceptive “No Child Left Behind” program. As for the repeal of the School-To-Work Act of 1994, Council of Foreign Relations kingpin Henry Hyde explained it this way:
“When carried to its logical extreme, it chooses careers for every American worker. Children’s careers will be chosen for them by Workforce Development Boards and federal agencies at the earliest possible age …
“Statewide Workforce Development Boards have formed to study which labor skills are needed in each state to determine “human resources” training requirements. Of course, this will decide also where these human resources will reside.”
Chilling to say the least – and it gets worse when one reads President Bush’s Executive Order, signed June 20, 2001, titled “21st Century Workforce Initiative.” The blueprint for forced labor is now being implemented quietly while parents and politicians scream, “More money for education.” Essentially they are asking to pay for the rope to hang their own children.”
In 2010, 111 Republicans in Congress pledged to get rid of that destructive cabinet brainwashing America’s children and kept in line by the big teachers unions pushing toxic agendas. Of course, nothing happened because unions vote and it’s all about jobs v the Constitution and the hell with actually educating America’s children. Indoctrinate and dumb down IS the game plan which has tragically succeeded. (The list of critters is at the very bottom; most are long gone from Congress and not a peep from Republicans since then.)
Rep. Thomas Massie [R-KY] is very constitutionally grounded in the legislation he introduces that goes nowhere with his RINO colleagues. In 2017 he introduced a bill, H.R. 899, to eliminate the Federal Department of Education. It had all of 9 co-sponsors and died Dec. 31, 2018.
Bill would eliminate the Department of Education after 2018: “Critics also note that the government’s own classification during the shutdown a few years ago labeled 94 percent of Education Department employees as nonessential.”
All states have their own departments of education. We don’t the unconstitutional federal one sucking down almost $70 BILLION BORROWED dollars a year.
Ah, yes. Something I have written about for the past 20 years: Abolishing the Department of Education is the Right Thing to Do
As I and a hundred others have written for decades, the so-called national debt created by the crooks and thieves in Congress who lie when they claim to support the U.S. Constitution – it’s going to break us. Trump knows this and I believe, just my personal opinion, he is very worried about the debt which is why he’s talking shrink or eliminate.
The current debt shoved down our throats by both parties is $22 TRILLION UNPAYABLE dollars. As I have written so many times, most Americans act as if the national debt is some nebulous object floating around out there that doesn’t affect them. They are DEAD wrong. Tens of millions of adult age Americans have no understanding of debt ratio vs GDP and what happens to a country when it reaches dangerous levels – just as it is right NOW.
When your checkbook is overdrawn $22 TRILLION dollars how can you keep doing this?
1 Federal Department Now Spending $100 Billion Per Month, July 10, 2019 – This is an unconstitutional cabinet spending debt as the money to fund it is borrowed. HHS. No one wants to hear about this because we’re talking Medicare and Medicaid – both unsustainable. I’m not going to rehash what I wrote before about being forced into Medicare but you can read about it at: Forced Into Medicare With A Gun to My Head.
According to the article above:
“CBO also estimates that federal Medicare spending (after deduction of beneficiary premiums and other offsetting receipts) will be about $637 billion in 2019, accounting for about 14% of total federal spending and 3% of GDP,” said CRS.
“Mandatory spending typically accounts for the majority of the HHS budget,” CRS explained in a report published in March. Two programs — Medicare and Medicaid — are expected to account for 86% of all estimated HHS spending in FY2019,” it said.”
Will federal binge-spending ever stop?, July 1, 2019
“This spend-and-borrow forecast ranges from troublesome to panic-room sheer terror – depending on your perspective. I’m in the former, not the latter frame of mind for now – in part because Congress is anticipating a rate of 1.8 percent annual growth – which is about 1 1/2 percentage points below our historical 3.25 percent growth. If Donald Trump can continue to grow the economy at a faster pace, the burden of this debt will at least stabilize.
“But it is still vitally important to understand how we got into this mess and how we can start to gradually bend the debt curve down.”
The author goes on to talk about taxes collected but he overlooks this one important thing:
President’s Private Sector Survey On Cost Control – A Report to The President (Reagan)
January 15, 1984. Available from the Congressional Research Service. The excerpt below can be found on page 12.
- Resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people were aware that:
- With two-thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Government contributions to transfer payments.
- In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their government.”
So, Moore can cite three trillion in tax collections but every penny of your federal income tax dollars goes for transfer payments, not to run the federal government. That creates a deficit and the solution? Print more worthless “money” and continue borrowing from our enemy countries.
We are in this financial Armageddon because of all the spending by both parties for cabinets that should never have existed as well as hundreds of agencies under them spending money that doesn’t exist. They also employ a few million people so when it comes to the constitution vs jobs, guess what loses? The Supreme Law of the Land. And while I do understand the fear of losing that paycheck, think of the financial hell being passed to your children and grandchildren.
I know Trump is trying to keep the country upbeat with his repeated statements about our economy and unemployment but he has to know things are not as great as people think. Just a few:
Truckers move the country: Economist Noel Perry Warns of More Shutdowns After LME Padlocks Doors, July 16, 2019
As I have recommended many times in the past, if you want to know the truth about the economy and unemployment, Shadow Stats is the web site to follow weekly. Prepare for a wake-up call.
President Trump is waiting until 2021, according to reports, to either “shrink or eliminate” certain agencies – no unconstitutional cabinets mentioned, just agencies. Commendable but it will be too little too late as we live through another presidential clown show before the November 2020 elections. The bottom line is you can’t cure cancer with Band Aids.
Unless and until all unconstitutional spending by YOUR incumbent and mine stops, nothing will change for the better. The average rate of reelecting the same incumbents who have screwed YOU over and over and over is 94%. Americans continue to re-hire the same people who have killed this country.
Unless and until the unconstitutional “Federal” Reserve is abolished – which neither Democrats or Republicans in Congress want – we will continue to suffer and American will never know real prosperity.
I tell you all this because it’s better to know the truth than as Patrick Henry said, “Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss.”
