Open Letter to President Trump

Mr. President:

With all due respect for the person of Pope Francis and the Petrine Office he holds, we urge you not to read the encyclical letter Laudato Si given to you by the pope during your recent Vatican visit, as it is a masterpiece of New Age deception which advocates a borderless one-world government under the governance of a “world political authority.” Its whole point is to place man in touch with his environment. It builds its bridges to the planet, not to Almighty God, and as such, cannot be instrumental in advancing world peace. 

The encyclical was actually written by the pope’s ghost writers Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez Guttierrez and Bishop Mario Toso for the purpose of spearheading the U.N. “Sustainable Development Goals” of making “Mother Earth” a safer place through population control (abortion). The encyclical’s vehement fight against man-made climate change has earned it enthusiastic acclaim from the very people [globalists] that have been battling you since the day you announced you were running for president.

Obamacare repeal will be hard and McConnell just made it harder

Sigh. Just when I’m about to give Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) the benefit of the doubt, he opens his mouth. On Wednesday, McConnell threw cold water on Obamacare repeal by saying that he didn’t see how the Senate was going to do it.

It was clear during the fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch that McConnell handles political strategy the way Mayor Bill de Blasio handles police controversies. When Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-People’s Republic of China) threatened to filibuster Gorsuch, McConnell should have responded by threatening to nuke the filibuster for all laws and nominations. This might have gotten Schumer to back down. Instead, McConnell did the equivalent of shaking his head at Schumer and saying, “That’s not very nice.”

Mark Zuckerberg: Government should give everyone a guaranteed minimum income without work

He is not the first to tout this idea. In fact, it’s been a favorite of Bernie Bro types for a while now. But it’s one thing when some lefty chucklehead on Facebook is pushing the idea of a universal, guaranteed minimum income for everyone - provided by the government with no work requirement whatsoever. It’s another thing when one of the richest and most influential people in the world signs on.

Some will suggest this is a signal Zuckerberg wants to run for office. I really don’t care one way or the other about that. I’d rather focus on merits (or lack thereof) of the idea itself, because it says a lot about the way kings of the technology sector (not to mention certain other industries) have taken to thinking.

Why should everyone get free money from the government, Mark Zuckerberg? Apparently because, if they didn’t have to worry about food or shelter, they could focus their energies on building more great things like Facebook:

Ariana Grande and Salman Abedi – Both Deeply Deceived


It goes without saying that the loss of the young lives in Manchester England is a tragedy of the highest order. Even though they were chasing a pop-culture pipe dream they were subject to the kind of treatment that no one should ever have to endure.

What is hard to escape is the picture the media paints of kids just having fun as a seemingly good thing, being interrupted by the pure evil of a crazed Islamic terrorist without regard for their perfect innocence.

It seems a closer look at what drew these teeny boppers into the arena could stand a great deal more scrutiny.

Dr Carson Compassionately Spoke the Truth About Black Poverty

Dr Ben Carson being under fire for saying “poverty is a state of mind” during an interview is a prime reason why black Americans should end their insane loyalty to Democrats.

In essence, Dr Carson compassionately gave his fellow blacks a crucial key to personal success and overcoming poverty. And yet, Democrat and Leftist self-proclaimed advocates for black empowerment rushed to silence him; beating the crap out of him in the media. As a black man, I am so frustrated.

Up until around age 9, I was raised in the Baltimore projects. My mom, dad, four younger siblings and I were so excited moving from our leaky roof ghetto into a brand new 11 story government high-rise.

Scarborough: You know who’s to blame for that candidate punching that reporter? Donald Trump

I longer Scarborough can keep up the I’m-a-Republican-but-this-all-troubles-me-so-much schtick. Scarborough is first and foremost a creature of the Beltway culture. His party affiliation is hardly worth a footnote given that his job is to cater to mindset of the political class.

Now, normal people (present company included) will offer no excuses for Greg Gianforte’s assault of a journalist, regardless of how obnoxious the guy’s behavior may have been, or how much we may think the journalism profession in general deserves one big body slam. There’s no excuse for it. No one will make any.

That’s what normal people do. Creatures of the Beltway, on the other hand, say things like this:

GOP “Body Slam” Win in Montana Proves Trump Revolution Still Strong!

Mainstream media, joined at the hip with desperate Democrat loons, created a political narrative which postulated an abrupt end to the Trump Revolution highlighted by an ominious(for the GOP) loss of a Republican seat in the House of Representatives in a special election held in Montana on Thursday.

Expectations were enhanced when the GOP candidate, Greg Gianforter, took exception to offensive actions by a biased reporter and used a “body slam” to take the offending reporter down, an act for which Gianforter was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor assault just hours before the polls opened for the election.

Pelosi promises: Give us back the house, and we’ll give you $15 an hour

Of all the Dems hare-brained schemes, the “fight for fifteen” has to be one of the most idiotic. It’s a plan that will decimate jobs for young people, force corporations to eviscerate their workforces in favor of robots, send manufacturing businesses overseas, devalue the wages people are already earning, drive up the price of virtually everything you buy at retail and, in the end, will succeed only in raising the poverty line to a new, higher, level.

It really is just monumentally stupid.

But, if you’re not too bright, I suppose it sounds good.  That’s why, ever eager to pander, Nancy Pelosi is using it as a sort of electoral carrot. Vote for Democrats, and she promises they’ll make sure $15 an hour becomes the new definition of “working for peanuts.”

Bernie Sanders, whose wife loves Iranian elections, sure does seem to think this a great idea, huh?

Republican wins Montana special election after being charged with assaulting a reporter

You were supposed to care.  Not just a little bit, either. You were really supposed to care.  In fact, you were supposed to be so outraged after Republican Greg Gianforte body slammed a reporter that the Democrats would take a safe GOP district in a landslide.

Apparently, you didn’t care.

Gianforte won his special election despite (or maybe because of) his ill-advised decision to flatten a member of the press.

Trump: Making Us Proud Shining Abroad

The elegance, wisdom and class President Trump has displayed on his first foreign policy trip continues to baffle political elitists and fake news media. 1 Corinthians 1:27 comes to mind. “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.”

Trump is a man of the people who speaks like a human being. Obama spoke like an arrogant blowhard. He spoke so high above us commoners that it took Leftist professors to explain the brilliance of his oratory.

On to SCOTUS? Virginia appeals court refuses to reinstate Trump’s travel ban

It’s come to this: The federal judiciary now believes it has to right to throw out perfectly legal actions that are within the president’s authority, if in the personal opinions of the federal judges, the president might have had a motive they don’t like. We’re now making up the law as we go along:

The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia on Thursday refused to reinstate President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban for six Muslim-majority nations, in another legal blow to the White House.

A majority of judges on the appeals court, in a 10-3 decision, said they were “unconvinced” the travel order had more to do with national security concerns than a “Muslim ban.”

America’s First Revolution against a Deep State

It happened in 1776 – America’s first revolution against a Deep State. 

President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “Drain the Swamp,” if fulfilled, will bring a second revolution against a Deep State.

The first Deep State in America was foreign born in 18th Century England. It impacted the Colonies through the Crown’s operatives and emissaries, some American born – some British. 

Today’s American Deep State is born and bred in the United States. We Americans own it -  it’s ours free-and-clear.

An Unquenched Light Deserving No More Darkness

Terrorists, by their very namesake, want to invoke terror. Whether their acts are by individuals bent on inflicting harm for whatever reason or connected to, or at least inspired by, a particular ideology, it matters very little at this point. Either way, they wish to disrupt normalcy, creating chaos from order. Once again, the world has witnessed a terrorist attack that has done that exact thing. Once again, hollow rhetoric will echo forth calling for compassion and understanding. Yes, there should be compassion - for the victims and their families. Yes, there should be understanding - for how and why such a senseless act was perpetrated in the first place. There must be both of these things in order to properly act. In order to properly act, though, both must be suppressed in order to dole out justice and punishment - justice for the victims and their families, punishment for the perpetrators. Neither can ever be forthcoming clouded by compassion or understanding.

Oh brother: Media now claiming Trump ‘shoved’ prime minister of Montenegro

You can watch it for yourself. It’s 10 seconds of nothingness that you’ll never get back, but at least it’s only 10 seconds. This, yes, this, is what is trending on Facebook at the moment. Trump shoves prime minister. Yeah. They’re really saying that.

About this:

I feel like an idiot even bothering with the details, but fine, I’ll play. First, look at the faces of both men. Do you see any aggression? Do you see any impatience? Do you see any tension whatsoever between them? Do you see anyone else who’s standing there bothered or taken aback by anything whatsoever?

We Need More Special Counsels

The original accusation, the underlying premise for the entire hissy fit by the chronic sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome’s about Russian collusion was that the Russians hacked the DNC and gave the emails to Wikileaks.

Recently Internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich, an employee of the DNC to get internal emails to Wikileaks.

Now we have proof that this underlying premise was a lie all along. We now know that the person who really did give the DNC emails to Wikileaks didn’t have to hack in, because he was an insider to begin with: Seth Rich.

Ben Carson correctly explains how a mindset keeps people in poverty; left predictably goes bananas

There is nothing liberals hate more than the suggestion that people with problems in their lives have the power to solve those problems, on their own, by making changes in their lives. They freak out at any such suggestion and paint it as “blaming the victim.” But it is really not that at all. It is simply a recognition that people make their own decisions and form their own attitudes, and that they have the power to change those decisions and attitudes if necessary to improve their lives.

If you’ve always made bad decisions, that doesn’t mean you always will make bad decisions. You can change and start making good ones. Many people have done so and you can learn from them. If you’ve always had bad habits, you don’t always have to keep those bad habits. You can reject them and embrace better ones. Find someone who has done so and find out how they did it, then do likewise. A cynic will tell you it can’t be done, but that’s not true. We can all improve ourselves.

Is This Legal?

In a previous article, “Freedom of the Press #13 - Sojourn to Sacramento”, I explained that Federal Magistrate Brennan (Sacramento) intended for me to receive diesel therapy, and that I would provide insight into just why he chose that route. It was an expected response based upon the information that he had been provided, regarding the Sealed Order Granting Government’s Request for Arrest Warrant as to Gary Hunt and Order Sealing Arrest Warrant(ECF #2017).

This Sealed Order was obviously prepared by the US Attorney’s Office. Their intention was to punish me, as they have most of the others in the Oregon and Nevada indictments, based upon contrived accusations.

The most oft-repeated contrived accusations that we are all familiar with are:

Court Rules Against Harrisburg Abortion Law

HARRISBURG, PA - Today, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Liberty Counsel’s pro-life clients, Colleen Reilly and Becky Biter, in their lawsuit against a Harrisburg ordinance which created unconstitutional buffer zones that silence pro-life speech on public sidewalks around abortion clinics. The federal Court of Appeals held that the lower court erred when it denied Liberty Counsel’s request to immediately prohibit further enforcement of the ordinance.

I tried to find a hole in the Republican-candidate-assaults-reporter story; I couldn’t

(Update:Montana Assault Witness Changes Story, Says No Neck Grab
Reporter says firsthand account misstated key aspect of Gianforte incident
Lifezette—A reporter who was a firsthand witness to an incident late Wednesday involving Montana GOP candidate Greg Gianforte and a reporter for the Guardian now admits she may have misstated some details of her initial story.)

Any time the media jump all over a story that looks terrible for a Republican, I smell a rat. And when the poor, innocent victim is a mainstream journalist, I smell a double rat. My instinct is usually that it’s all just a little too perfect, and usually when I look into it I find that I was right to trust my instincts.

So when I heard that Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate in the upcoming Montana special congressional election, had assaulted a reporter for asking him questions about health care, my first thought was, “What aren’t they telling us?”

Was the reporter the aggressor?

Private investigator charged for illegal pre-election attempt to get Trump’s tax returns.

In the brutal 2016 cage-match between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, tax returns emerged as something of a broken bottle tossed into the ring. If Hillary could grab it, she’d be able to pull herself off the ropes and lash out with a deadly weapon.

Democrats were sure the returns would show that Trump A: wasn’t rich, B: had been colluding with secret ex-Soviet forces, and C: had been dodging his federal responsibilities for something close to 20 years. The hunt was on.

Right down to the electoral wire, Dems were searching frantically for the object of their obsession.
