The most valuable swamp land in all America

Founding Father Thomas Jefferson foretold our present-day situation.

power-corruption-Thomas-jefferson
Where is the greatest concentration of wealth? Hint: It’s not in any of the fifty states or any of the commonwealths.

Last year, the District of Columbia paid Uncle Sam $37,000 per person in federal income, payroll and estate taxes. The next closest was Delaware, at $16,000 per person.

“It’s where the money is,” said Roberton Williams, a fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “The reason the District pays so much in taxes is that there are a lot of high-income people there.”AP Top News 16 April 2017

Since the foundation of our Republic, the consolidation of power in Washington, District of Columbia has grown unabated. As Jefferson warned, the consequences remain apace the corruption.

Recent news stories feature Maxine Water’s incessant rants against President Trump. Other news stories reveal her corrupt practices over her many years in office.

Holy scripture warns, “For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.

Foggy Bottom corruption isn’t endemic to a political party. Corrupted governments have been around since the dawn of mankind dating back to the temptation of Adam and Eve by Satan.

We aren’t sinners because we sin; we sin because we are sinners.

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned…Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come…For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many…Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person [Jesus Christ] obeyed God, many will be made righteous.Romans 5:12-19 NLT

By what means do we stamp out corruption in government? Try as we may, there is nothing we citizens can do to eliminate corruption – sin – from the centers of power.

Long before Thomas Jefferson voiced his warning, a plan was set in place to make us whole. There is this one verse in the Bible that addresses the big ‘why’ Jesus Christ came to dwell among men, to die and resurrect himself from the grave. This verse is found in 1 John 3:8.

He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

That word destroy means to loosen, break up, dissolve, melt, put off, to deprive of authority. When linking 1 John 3:8 with 2 Corinthians 5:17 we can understand we are all born as sinners – you, me and Maxine Waters alike.

What am I saying? While car buying the appearance and odors of a used car cannot reveal its old nature. But, a new car has that unmistakeable odor and appearance of a vehicle never before owned by anyone.

This is the work of Jesus Christ in our lives. He destroys, he loosens and undoes all the work of Satan in our lives. We become new creations as though sin never happened.

God the Father did not send his son just to get us off the hook. His purpose is to bring the Kingdom of God to earth.

Jesus works today in the lives of politicians, government employees, you, and me to restore us to God’s original design for his family.

Yes, Jesus died for our sins. He defeated death through his ordeal and by resurrecting himself from the dead to return to Heaven where God continues his work of restoration of all mankind through the agency of the Holy Spirit.

Today, April 16, 2017, is Resurrection Day celebrated to commemorate the Passover.

All authority comes from God who is exposing the corruption of authority throughout the world today. It is God who uses the agency of elected officials to “drain the swamp”.

May God drain the swamp and bless America as he reveals his Son to all mankind.

Deep State sabotage of Pres. Trump must come to an end – #DrainTheSwamp

On January 20, 2017, the New York Times reported WIRETAPPED DATA USED IN INQUIRY OF TRUMP AIDES.

wiretapped-trump
Still more on March 6, 2017, Lou Dobbs Tonight: Fmr. U.S. AG Mukasey’s take on Trump’s wiretapping claim 

Here’s the full Lou Dobbs Tonight half-hour video of March 6, 2017. As Lou points out, President Obama denies directly ordering a wiretap; he does not deny it happened.

The NY Times says is happened. Former U.S. Attorney General Mukasey says it very likely happened. Barack Obama does not deny it happened.

First and foremost, let’s pray for President Trump (1 Timothy 2:2). Let’s also pray the truth will be uncovered. As it is written in Mark 4:2, “For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”

In an interview with Chris Wallace on a Fox News Sunday program on February 19, 2017 Rush Limbaugh warned how the ‘deep state’ is sabotaging this president. Give a listen.

Domestic spying evidently happened throughout the eight years of the Obama administration.

Write and/or call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative. Tell them to encourage President Trump to Drain The Swamp by firing all Obama appointees.

Dispelling the Myth of Co-Equal Branches of Government

You were taught this lie in public school. What lie? The lie that our federal government has three co-equal branches. the-constitutional-hierarchy-of-federal-government

A casual reading of the U.S. Constitution is the first place to start. [ Link to official U.S. Government Archives]

First the Statistics

  • Article I Established the Legislative Branch. There are ten sections and 2,268 words that describe every aspect from its membership to the enumerated powers of federal government to the authority to impeach presidents.
  • Article II defines the Executive branch in four sections and 1,025 words. This section authorizes the President to make treaties with the consent of the Senate, but not on his own authority. This article describes how the Legislative Branch can impeach him to remove him from office. The president is also authorized to execute the laws written by the Legislature.
  • Article III establishes the Judicial branch in three sections and 377 words.
  • The Federal Register (the daily newspaper of the Federal government) is a legal newspaper published every business day by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Federal Register contains Federal Agency Regulations. Proposed Rules and Public Notices. There are 743,069 documents published on tens of thousands of pages.

Dr. Ben Carson estimated the size of the Federal Register in 2015. At the end of that year, the Register had 82,036 pages. At 250 pages per inch, the Register would make a stack twenty-seven (27) feet high and this was two years ago. You can imagine its size now.

Analysis

In any industry or organization, how do you know who the boss is? Is it not the person who can fire you?

There are actually five divisions of government, the most important division is the ‘We the People’ division. Federal bureaucracies are known as the fourth branch of government.

We the People can fire lawmakers, representatives and senators. The Legislative Branch can fire Presidents and federal judges. However, neither the President nor the Judiciary can fire lawmakers. Do you see now the hierarchy of government?

Let’s take a moment to review the fourth branch, the bureaucracies. Over the eight years of the Obama presidency, 20,642 regulations were added. This amounts to seven new laws per day, 365 days per year for 8 years.

Historian David Barton says we Americans commit on average three felonies a day and have no idea what regulations we violate.

Summary

The 2016 election cycle was unlike any in all our history. President Donald Trump was elected by Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and Libertarians. He was opposed by the leadership of both major political parties. He pledged to drain the swamp, cut taxes, slash confiscatory business-strangling regulations and make America great again. While giving his inaugural speech, he said and I quote:

This is your day.

This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Read the entire inaugural here president-trumps-inaugural-address-20-january-2017

It’s time for all Americans, regardless political party affiliation, to take back ownership of this nation.

May God bless these United States and may God bless President Donald Trump.

Democrat Senators Choose the Nuclear Option

the-nuclear-option
Without so much as a usual and customary hearing, without even knowing in advance whom President Trump will nominate to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats publicly declared in advance they will oppose any and all Trump appointments.

What will the Republican majority do?

Fortunately, it is Sen. Mitch McConnell who has “the briefcase” and not Sen. Chuck Schumer.

The nuclear or constitutional option is a parliamentary procedure that allows the U.S. Senate to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes. – Wikipedia

Democrats have essentially said they will be obstructionist throughout the confirmation process for President Trump’s appointees. Consider excerpts from a Fox News Sunday program on January 22, 2017, when Chris Wallace interviewed Senator Mitch McConnell.

WALLACE: Finally, President Trump says he wants to name a Supreme Court nominee. He’s talked about doing it within two weeks. And Senator Schumer has said that they’re going to block anyone that they don’t like, that they feel is outside the mainstream.

As Senate rules now stand, because the — the nuclear option was — was extended, it — on a partial level in 2013 by the Democrats, you can confirm lower court judges with just 51 votes.

MCCONNELL: Well, let me just say, I’m confident we’ll get a Supreme Court nominees confirmed. I expect an outstanding nominee sometime soon. I think it’s noteworthy to look at how the Republican minority handled Bill Clinton the first — in his first administration. Both — both of his first two nominees, Ginsburg and Breyer, no filibuster. Obama, in his first term, to go, no filibuster. We think our nominee ought to be treated the same way. If he is not treated that way, then, under the current Senate rule, we would have to get cloture. That is, we’d have to get 60 votes. We had to do that when the Democrats objecting to Justice Alito 10 years ago, but cloture was invoked. Sorry for the long answer. I think the short answer is, the nominee will be confirmed.

WALLACE:  But would you consider extending the nuclear option and saying, even for Supreme Court justices, just a simple majority?

MCCONNELL: The nominee will be confirmed.

WALLACE:  One thing I’ve learned with you, Senator McConnell, is once you’ve given an answer, you’re going to stick with that.

View a video of the Mitch McConnell interview on Fox News Sunday.

Let’s encourage our Republican senate majority to use the Nuclear Option, in light of the public position stated by the Democrat minority.

May God bless America.

Spy-vs-Spy Obamanation

Reuters: Living among spies in leafy Maryland

Do Russians spy on the U.S.? Do bears do you-know-what in the woods? Yes. Russians spy on us. In fact, every foreign nation on the face of the earth spies on us. Most of the spies who pry into your private lives live right here on our soil, native born and educated.

When Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies spy on us, they call it ‘market research’. Regardless how you dress it, it’s spying.

Back to the Russians, our CIA and other federal agencies spy on Russia, and every other nation on the face of the earth. If you wish to see an example, peruse the CIA World

Factbook. Want information on Russia? Just enter “Russia” in the search box, top right-hand corner. Interested in a job as a spy for the U.S.? Click on the heading CAREERS & INTERNSHIPS.

While the CIA spies on people outside our borders, the NSA spies on the people inside our borders.  You didn’t know? U.S. government spies are everywhere!

Barack Obama continues to deflect responsibility for his personal failures by attributing Democrat losses to the Russians instead of his failed, leftist, progressive, socialistic, communistic, atheistic, unconstitutional, illegal policies and executive orders.

Barack Obama is a small-minded, radicalized anti-American. He leaves office as the man who singlehandedly dismantled the Democratic Party.

One word that describes the character of Barack Obama: hypocrite. Thankfully, after January 20, 2017, we can call him a former president.

Welcome to a new year and a new era – trust but verify

This incident reinforced the anti-war movement, but you should know the rest of the story. http://bit.ly/2ik7vjK
the-rest-of-the-story
This execution photo doesn’t tell the whole story.
The lesson to take away from Brig. Gen. Loan’s public execution of a Viet Cong officer serves as a lesson: never accept at face value news stories. Then as now journalism is dead. Reporters write slanted stories and publish select photographs to reinforce a radical point of view.
 
Proverbs 18:17 warns, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.
 
A Biblical principle applies. Deuteronomy 19:15 challenges the credibility of witnesses, prescribing verification, saying, “A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established.
 
As we move into a new year and a new era, let’s be diligent to verify rumors and news stories through personal research.
 
May God bless the reader and may He bless America.

The Electoral College – Democrats Undermine the Process

On Fox News Sunday today (12/18/16), Juan Williams said he read a book and learned that the intent of the founders was for the electors to use the own judgment as to the fitness of a person to be president.
 
Well, not exactly, Mr. Williams. According to U.S. Law,  Electors are appointed according to the laws of the respective states.
electoral-college-excerpt-of-the-us-constitution
Excerpt of the U.S. Constitution, Article II
 
What is the difference between the winner-takes-all rule and proportional voting, and which states follow which rule? Reference: National Archives – The Electoral College FAQ
 
The District of Columbia and 48 states have a winner-takes-all rule for the Electoral College. In these States, whichever candidate receives a majority of the popular vote, or a plurality of the popular vote (less than 50 percent but more than any other candidate), takes all of the state’s Electoral votes.
 
Only two states, Nebraska and Maine, do not follow the winner-takes-all rule. In those states, there could be a split of Electoral votes among candidates through the state’s system for proportional allocation of votes…”
 
270 is the official “winner take all” threshold and Donald Trump won 306.
 
Do Democrats know the law? Of course, they do. But let’s keep in mind that the Democrat Party no longer represents legitimate society. It is the party of progressive elites in Hollywood and the wealthiest globalists like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg.
 
Independents and Democrats voted for Donald Trump because they want to make America great again.
 
If faithless electors betray the voters, there will be turmoil and unrest such as this country has not experienced since the Great Civil War.
 
Make known your displeasure with the Democrat Party skullduggery. Send messages to your two U.S. Senators and to your U.S. Representative.
