PREDICTABLE 2020 ELECTION RESULTS

The Results of the 2020 Presidential Election are in, NO VOTING REQUIRED. The Democrats are mourning the defeat and POTUS signs another Four Year Lease in the White House. Country has unfinished Business and the Voters determined he is the best Person. For too long Country went in the wrong direction. Now it is time to change course. The Election was a Landslide victory much like Reagan and over before, night began on the “Coast

POLITICAL SIDE SHOW

Claims of Russian involvement in the Presidential Election of 2016 and surveillance of the Trump transition Team were Side Shows. Wasteful talk of Impeachment was just that.

Democrats spent years embroiled on those issues. Democrats in effect took an in-place sabbatical with the intent of sabotaging the Trump administration. The Democrats signaled intent not to participate in Governing and were comfortable with accomplishing nothing. The electorate was tossed to the wayside. The Democrats were talking heads engulf in discussions about the inconsequential.

My fellow Americans had no interest in claims of Russian involvement in the Presidential Election of 2016 or surveillance of the Trump transition Team. The American people were anxious to have their needs addressed: Health care, Jobs, Tax cuts, crumbling Infrastructure, the Murdering of our Children by Illegal Immigrants through violence and Non-violent acts.

Illegal Immigrants are murdering our Children on the street with Guns and in some cases Machete. Illegal Immigrants are murdering our Children with the distribution of narcotics. Our defenseless young people are under attack and the Liberal Democrats are avoiding and ignoring the reality. Instead, they continue to conduct themselves like bobble – head dolls and engage in inconsequential discussions.

There is a quiet and soon to be loud war being conducted on our Young people by Illegal Immigrants through violence. They are killing our Young people one by one. These acts are not incidental it is part of a concerted effort. We need to get these Illegal Immigrants and Gangs out of country. This is a serious matter and demands immediate attention.

Our young people are being targeted and introduced to opioids that have high addictive properties. Our young people are dying in alarming numbers. This is a serious development. Our descendants and potential future Leaders are being killed openly and surreptitiously. This is a serious matter and demands immediate attention.

The 2008 – 2016 administration ignored the situation. I hope the current administration pay attention and devote resources to eradicate. I also hope that the talking heads Democrats will join in this effort. If Democrats fail to participate in large numbers individuals who do not should be Repealed and Replaced.

How did the Russians interfere with the Presidential Election of 2016? Did they change the programming of the Voting machines? Did the Russians sneak into homes the night before the election, threaten the electorate, and command them to vote for Trump? Is there a citizen who had a visit from the KGB on the night before the election and summarily commanded to vote for Trump or risk being sent to Siberia the day after? If so, step forward and announce. The Democrats would like to hear from you.

To Democrats who plan to mourn losing the Presidential Election of 2016 and 2020, leave your Time Card in the rack on the way out. No absentee ballot allowed on any Bill. Your vote will be confiscated and counted alongside the votes of the Republican Party. Let us move forward with the business of Governing.

The key issues facing our nation now and beyond are: Unemployment, Manufacturing Jobs, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, Declining morality by our elected officials, Campaign Financing, Pakistan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Uprising in the Middle East, Turmoil in Africa, inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea, and growing friction with China.

Unemployment:

Unemployment will be reduced, when the cockamamie NAFTA philosophy is tossed. High Unemployment will go away when our Manufacturing Jobs return. Unemployment will be reduced when corporations offshoring manufacturing and Technology Jobs to India and China are taxed as opposed to receiving incentives. Nothing less will stop the hemorrhage of jobs. Unemployment is a sore. Applying a band-aid in the form of stimulus initiatives, as was the approach of the previous Administration will not heal this huge sore.

A tax cut for the Affluent to get limited employment benefits for the poor was unconscionable. It is fine to be rich and right to want to be rich. Unfortunately, no country has ever stayed rich when the number of people in poverty increases. A quick check is look at Haiti. Meaningful tax cuts must include poor people.

Manufacturing Jobs:

Bring back our Manufacturing sector. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs is the basis for our economic woes. Those jobs went off shore. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs created displaced workers who cannot pay their mortgages or purchase goods and services. To suggest that the workers most of whom have a High School Diploma and between the age of 50 and 70 should go to Community Colleges and re-train is adding insult to injury. It is also undemocratic because you are taking their choice away.

There was a time when everything was made in the USA. Prior to POTUS arrival nothing or very little was. What can we do about that, you say. Simply refuse to purchase the merchandise not made in the USA. Personally, if the merchandise is not made in the Western Hemisphere, I do not buy. Yes, I actively read the labels to see where the product is manufactured. Finally, we have a President who understands that Country and Empire will only be great if there is a manufacturing base.

Deficit and Debt:

Politicians have demonstrated that the Deficit is less important than Tax cuts. Tax cuts for the affluent is more important than helping fellow Americans in need. Quite candidly, politicians talking about deficit and the size thereof are engaged in a façade. It is merely tongue and cheek chatter because they created the deficit. The deficit be damned, we the politicians are obligated to repay our campaign contributors. Some politicians are human Leopards. They cannot change their spots. The voters are not important. Their pledge to America is a charade. I thought that if you ran for public office the understanding was you were making a pledge to serve the people.

Since the financial crisis of 2008, Deficit and Debt affected Local, and State governments. Individuals, Cities, States, Country, and the World are on a deficit to Debt path. Quite candidly, with the exception of China a country manufacturing things, one could argue that all countries are in one of two categories – Declared or Undeclared Debt.

The impact of Deficit to Debt on individuals is a bottomless pit of continued high unemployment, Foreclosures, astronomical credit card debt, and the increasing inability of decent human beings to afford necessities. At the same time, Local and State governments are increasing taxes but reducing the quality of services and contribution to Education. States that are in the Declared Debt category are CT, NY, OH, and CA. Others will declare soon.

The trend is reversible. However, it has to be done constructively and not by politicians running around like chicken without heads spewing vitriol or seeking to take away the right of unions to engage in Collective Bargaining. Neither will it be resolved by recklessly slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens. Frankly, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could create the age-old condition of two wrongs does not make a right.

In this world of unrest and citizens demanding actual Democracy as opposed to lip service of the ideology, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could be a recipe for disaster. The recipe and the meal could be on exhibit at a State near you.

Illegal Immigration:

Illegal immigration is a Trojan horse with the sides exposed. In essence, it is transparent and the occupants are visible.

We cannot continue to ignore Illegal Immigration. Any consideration of Amnesty for individuals in country illegally is the equivalent of allowing an invasion. An invasion condones importing criminals, Terrorists, and foreign diseases. Changing current Immigration Laws to accommodate invaders will demonstrate disrespect for citizens, the children of fallen soldiers, and legal immigrants.

Employing illegal immigrants at low wages and ignoring unemployed citizens is wrong. Employing illegal immigrants at low wages is temporary and unsustainable. Think about it, are you doing the same job that your parents did? Do you seriously think that the children of illegal immigrants will? If not, then what.

Illegal immigrants in low wage occupation will not affect you. However, your children and Great Grandchildren will be competing with the descendants of illegal immigrants in the workplace. Consistently, the 14th Amendment MUST be amended. The 14th Amendment where it allows for the preposterous Anchor baby must be revised otherwise it will ultimately disenfranchise children born of Legal Permanent residents, Naturalized, and Natural born citizens.

The simple required amendment to the 14th Amendment should read as follows:

You are a citizen if and only if your mother was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to your conception.

Prior to your conception means that at the time of your birth and the gestation period is determined and concluded your mother must have valid proof that she was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to the commencement of said gestation period.

In essence, if it is determined by the medical community that your mother gave birth to you in 9 months, your mother MUST have been a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen for more than 9 months before the date of your birth.

Abortion:

I am in favor of abortion and the woman’s right to choose. However, I am not in favor of State sponsored abortion except in cases of Rape and Incest. Even then, I am only in favor of abortion before the end of the 1st Trimester (3 months).

Declining morality by our elected officials:

Social Media is beneath the standards that Politicians should maintain. When I was a child, Politicians would not consider much less participate in such trite, trivia, and frivolity. Congressman Weiner’s experience is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Congressman Weiner was the first of many who had their reputation and integrity ruined by tweeting. Politics and Social media are at separate ends of the civics spectrum. You can try to mix oil and water if you wish but unless you are Winston Churchill with the intent to light a fire to destroy the Germans and Japanese on High seas you will burn like Congressman Weiner.

I do not subscribe to the expectations that our politicians should be Lilly white. However, while in office I expect your conduct to be beyond reproach.

Campaign Financing:

The political campaign process is flawed. Fund raising has eliminated the common person from participation in our Republic. The television Network media has kidnapped the Election process. Hence, the price or investment tag has become astronomical and well above the pay grade of most academically accomplished and capable citizens.

Money or the access to it has become the significant criteria. In addition, survival of character assassination is now the final frontier. Ability and love of country is irrelevant. Character assassination would have eliminated many of our Founding fathers from participation in our Republic. Jefferson with all his financial debt would not have a chance to run for President.

The political system has become Selective rather than Elective. Political incumbents have succeeded in persuading the masses to believe in the nebulous concept of Electability and Name recognition. Electability does not equate to performance. Having my father’s name does not mean I am like he, or as capable, or that you can predict my performance. Voters are being fed ineptitude wrapped in Electability and seasoned with “Name Recognition”.

It is flawed thinking to conclude that one candidate has more experience than the other does. No one has experience dealing with the evolving issues of the world. A candidate’s ability to deal with these issues can be determined during the campaign.

Candidates are now claiming to bring change to the Table, including change in the form of a woman or black. Given such an eventuality one would still be required to prove how good and for whom. The question is will this change be effective in dealing with the key issues.

Because of the flawed political campaign process, No longer is every citizen born with the potential to become President of the USA. There is a greater potential that a child born in the USA will be a soldier, sent to a foreign country in defense of some cockamamie philosophy, and return in a body bag. The irony is a soldier fortunate to escape the ultimate sacrifice still has very little chance of being President of the USA because odds are he or she will not get noticed by the selection committee of the political parties. Even after risking their lives in defense of our nation, veterans are experiencing all kinds of challenges from Housing to Medical.

Pakistan:

The Government of Pakistan has all but abdicated its responsibility to rule. Benazir Bhutto is quaking in her grave. Pakistan is a volcano ready to erupt. Any attempt to refute the reality on the ground is simply denial.

Pakistan’s military assets are in danger of being confiscated. That is the objective of Taliban and Al-Qaeda extremists. I envision an abbreviated life for the current Pakistani government. NATO forces had better prepare for the impact of this eventuality. Power ill gotten is not sustainable.

Monetary aid to Pakistan is a waste of money that can be better spent on economic needs of the Republic. Charity begins at home.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan:

Leaving Iraq was a mistake and I hope we have a contingency plan to return. Iraq will not be stable anytime soon. The challenge is how stable is unstable in Iraq. What levels of instability in Iraq will be acceptable? If Israel’s peaceful existence is threatened by Iraq’s instability, then what? Remember Iran borders Iraq.

Winning the war in Afghanistan is necessary. Comments to the contrary by Russian and international card-carrying members of the Truce society, is not an option. Since Genghis khan Truce has not worked in Afghanistan.

Action delayed will be resolution denied. NATO forces must cleanse the Swat valley and southeastern Afghanistan of Taliban and Al-Qaeda extremists to win this war. NATO forces must be relentless. NATO forces must cease conducting Police action and Training. You cannot have a police call in the military before you create the trash. If NATO forces have forgotten how to create high-density debris, then they need to consult the World War II playbook.

This conflict will get unavoidably messy, but action delayed will be resolution denied. Multi-tasking is not a strong attribute of warfare. Forget about the civilian involvement and Journalist crowding the stage. Confront the enemy, defeat the enemy, and then how may we help. Perhaps we will but then again maybe we will not.

Uprising in the Middle East:

The Governments of the Arabic speaking countries in the Middle East will change. The question is how much change and what kind. Citizens have been suffering for decades and finally arrived at the breaking point, as in Syria. History has shown that there is a limit to how much the human spirit will take. Even from the days of Anwar Sadat, there were signs that the Egyptians were not exactly “walking like an Egyptian”.

There will not be any peace in the Middle East between Israel and the Arab countries anytime soon. The only solution for peace between Israel and Palestinians may be to split the land. I consider this option because Lord Balfour promised Israel and the Palestinians the same parcel of Land in 1951. Israel will consider that option, but the Palestinians might not be interested. How do we resolve this impasse, only God knows?

People in the Middle East have evolved beyond the days of Monarchy and Military rule.  It is time for the development of Governments, and the building and completion of a democratic path forward that will transform countries into Civilian rule supported by a military for security.

Uprising in the Middle East will have a good ending for the United States and the International community. The people in the Middle East know that the international community is on their side based on demonstration of support for their cause. This will change their thinking about Americans. No regime in the Middle East will be immune from uprising. As long as Americans show a human side, the hearts and minds of the Arabic people will change. They know that Americans get it. We know that they want change now, starting with the departure of Autocracy and Military rule.

Turmoil in Africa:

The Libyan uprising was but a small portion of Turmoil on the African Continent. I stress continent for the benefit of politicians who probably still believe Africa is a country. The Sudan, South Africa, Tunisia, Botswana, Liberia, Somalia, and the Ivory Coast are countries with issues that must be resolved sooner than later and there are others.

Most politicians have no idea where these countries are or anything about their History. Therefore, it is not likely that they have or will ever have any constructive approach to resolutions.

Inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea:

Silence is golden but also revealing. Iran has not given up their quest to destroy Israel, quite the contrary. Iran is unfinished business. Thanks very much to the worst President in my lifetime, the honorable Jimmy Carter. The Iranian regime is not going away. Wishing on a star or burying your head in the sand like an Ostrich will not resolve the issue. Anyone who thought that Iran was building nuclear plants for Energy purposes is in denial. If the international community fails to act, then Israel will. It is not if but when and how Israel will act. The Iranian regime will be monitoring.

North Korea is a run-away child running wild in search of attention, which undoubtedly becomes a distraction from more important matters as Afghanistan and the need to respond to Piracy off the coast of Somalia. North Korea has decided that it will defiantly stomp its missiles until wants are provided. The only problem is, those wants have not been articulated publicly to the world community. The public assumes that they would like to be a Nuclear power, which unless they are able to win the sub-plot to World War III they will not achieve.

Frankly, I think we should render the Armistice of 1953 null and void, restart the Korean War, and soundly defeat the crackpot regime for the last time. The scenario reminds me of a Nursery Rhyme with a little bit of a twist. Some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in the pot 63 years old. That maybe a harsh analysis but my first impression is usually right and only incorrect if I rethink. The civilized world may have to revise the map of the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea will strike against South Korea militarily, it is more likely than not. North Korea will open a Pandora’s Box whose lid would have been better kept closed. However, the occurrence, which appears inevitable, will serve, as a reminder to the world community, that Action delayed is resolution denied.

The growing friction with China:

Did you know that the Chinese are stockpiling oil and buying up any interest in fossil fuel, in countries such as Burma and on the African continent? Did you hear that the Chinese are building some military looking facility in Brazil? Did you hear that the Architect who built the Twin Towers built “The World Financial Center” in China? A significant number of our manufacturing and Technology Jobs were off shored to China and corporations are receiving tax incentives for their valor.

Will your politician have the ability to review, articulate, and engender a constructive response. Surely, you do not suppose that all the above are mere coincidence. If you do, then let me remind you that there is no such thing as coincidence.

The key issues facing our nation now and beyond are: Unemployment, Manufacturing Jobs, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, Declining morality by our elected officials, Campaign Financing, Pakistan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Uprising in the Middle East, Turmoil in Africa, inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea, and growing friction with China.

VERBAL COUP

verbal coup top

President Trump has nothing to fear but fear itself. This Russian collusion is a non-issue and will fizzle. Country is in a state of Verbal Coup. The Democrats continuous harping about this non-issue and doing nothing to further the interest of struggling United States citizens are in effect conducting a Verbal Coup. Democrats have abdicated their responsibility to participate in the Government and are in effect engaged in a Coup.

The conduct of Democrats and Liberals is threatening to take Country backward. However, successful Businessmen make good Presidents and Democrats and Liberals will soon grow tired. Democrats are doing an injustice to the American citizens. In life, it is all about Lead, follow, or get out of the way. I think it is time for the Democrats especially in the House of Representatives, to get out of the way and stop collecting Pay Checks that they cannot justify earning. If your daily existence is to say no to the agenda, that the voters clearly asked for, then you are doing an injustice to the American citizens and you should go home. Said Democrats, should be repealed and replaced by their constituents. Some Democrats in the House of Representatives qualify for impeachment.

It takes collusion to know collusion. Democrats have engaged in collusion in the last eight years that they have become sensitive to collusion. The Libya Debacle was collusion. Democratic leaders in the House and Senate are foaming at the mouth unintelligibly, to the extent that most cannot decide which of the countries on the Korean Peninsular is our ally. God may very well have spared the Empire with the election of The Donald.

After decades of failed diplomacy, there are Democrats who believe that Kim jong Un is interested in that Tag Sale and is searching for the nearest Good Will organization to donate his Nuclear Toys. To those Democrats, I will sell you the Empire Sate for a Penny. I will bet that members of House of Representatives from California, could not tell you which State in the union is known as the: “Empire State”.

The problem with that Dementia and Alzheimer diplomacy philosophy by the Democrats is that Kim jong Un will continue to ignore such pleadings. The only thing that will stop a bully is confrontation. If we who breathe, eat, and sleep the ideals of our Republic take, two mental steps back but remain physically committed, Kim jong Un will crack. He will do something unacceptable, which will provoke a military response. It will then become a situation of shoot first and talk later.

If we fail to be vigilant, California will not need a Border Wall or Lock on the door. To the Progressives who in reality are really Regressive, failure is not an option in this confrontation with North Korea; otherwise, I will see you in Heaven or Hell. I do not know about you nor do I care but I prefer to make Heaven and Hell right here on Earth.

The vitriol and verbal abuse of Potus has reached a crescendo. Those members of our community that are less than thirty years of age must think that our presumed leaders are bleeping idiots. How did a Nation so strong give birth to such bleeping idiots? Vladimir Putin is probably wondering why Russia did not attack during the Cold War period.

Anyone who thinks that diplomacy will obtain us victory over North Korea should invest in a Pine Box at the local Funeral Parlor. Verbal Coup is in full swing. Just listen to the mad congressional representatives from California. The vitriol, animosity, bickering, and unintelligible daily outbursts is at such a high level that I am amazed that Country is not embroiled in a Civil War but the Verbal Coup is still in the early stages. Even so, the violence displayed at Rallies on College Campuses is indicative that while we are seemingly far away from a Civil War we might be closer than one would like to think. The world is watching and perhaps saying, look at those imbeciles.

There are many Conservatives still alive so Country is not on the eve of Destruction but we are definitely being tested. I suggest that we gather the dissenting members of Congress and sponsor a vacation to Siberia with the support of Vladimir Putin. I am confident that upon their hastily return they would have great respect for our Republic. What do you think?

A simple thing like protecting our Southern Border should not be viewed negatively. If that border was protected and Immigrants properly vetted, ms13 would not have killed any of our young citizens. Prevent is always easier than cure. Protecting your border is a no brainer but the Democrats with Boll Weevil in their heads fail to comprehend the benefits of such action. The laxity in border protection and the immigration of an over abundance of persons is causing great harm in our minority communities. However, that fact as well as is Country experiencing Migration or Exodus will be subjects for future discussion.

Study all the agreements of the previous Administration including their policies on refugees and you will determine that they were all Debacles. Unless you have the willingness to lie to yourself, the previous Administration was giving Country away wholesale. Jobs, Industries, and people were being abandoned surreptitiously. Consistent with the anti-American policies of the previous Administration, borders were obstructions to their objective.

The previous Administration allowed Subversive elements to inhabit the West wing. While those concerned would like to hide that fact, Country narrowly escaped a cultural invasion of epic proportion. Thank heavens for Potus; schools are no longer teaching any cockamamie Islamic tolerance. How and why did members of the Republican Party allow that to happen? I do not recall hearing any Republican Senator especially John McCain objecting to that absurdity. There are a number of Republicans who appear to have obtained membership in the RINO organization.  The RINO organization consists of members of the Political class who are Republicans in Name Only. Suspected members are part of the Verbal Coup. Listen to John McCain and Paul Ryan sometime and you will have no doubt that there is a Verbal Coup in Country.

As for Paul Ryan, it is inconceivable that the President will get to the promise land with Speaker Ryan, as his Chauffer.  Speaker Ryan is a Democrat in Republican clothing. Potus will not accomplish his goals if Speaker Ryan is the lead or face promoting his agenda. Speaker Ryan is part of the swamp. Therefore, he must be part of the drainage. For a while, Speaker Ryan was able to mask his intentions but the mask is off. Speaker Ryan has sold out to the Left. Ryan did not support the Presidents candidacy, does not believe in the philosophy of the President, and will not promote the agenda of the Administration. Speaker Ryan must go.

To Speaker Ryan, ask not what the Republican Party can do for you but what you can do for the Republican Party. Your required action should be self-evident. The Administration and the Party need to move forward. Please do the right thing. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

After seven years of discontent, the Affordable Health Care proposal on the table is inadequate. After all these years, neither Party appears willing to provide a Single Payer Health Insurance solution. I find it difficult to believe that the current plan is the best that Republican Party Law makers can draft. The principal architect is mentally inebriated from being too close to or too far from the project. The principal architect lacks the understanding and interpretation of the issue. It is impossible for him to construct a satisfactory plan. The segmentation of the Republican members of congress could lead to the demise of the Republican Party.

Until the “Freedom Caucus” is 435 members in the house and 100 Senators in the Senate, they are a minority Group and will not have final word on any legislation nor should they be allowed to.

If the intent of the “Freedom Caucus” is to do nothing and bring Government to a halt, then they are doing a terrific job. If the “Freedom Caucus” believes doing nothing will metamorphose into a Landmark decision, then my feedback is, awake from that delusion. Each “Freedom Caucus” member should stop collecting paychecks and deposit said funds to the Health Care entity of choice until President Trump signs satisfactory legislation.

Not all is lost but it is time for the President to get focus. The President needs to launch his Veto Power. The President needs to be reminded, that he can veto anything that does not meet expectation. He should veto any Legislation that the Democrats seek to move forward that weaken his leadership. The President needs to employ Time, Focus, and Concentration and move all Campaign promises forward.

President Trump has nothing to fear but fear itself. It is all right but then it has to be all right unless the Republicans wish to squander their gains and be tarred and feathered in an election near you. This would leave Potus to fight the good fight against all foes. Frankly, at this rate the President may do better without them. Some men fight better when they have no Army. Sometimes an army of Politicians is a distraction. Well, perhaps only in Washington since the Fifth Dimensions or was it the Age of Aquarius. The verbal Coup has been going on so long now, I do not even remember. Where is Clint Eastwood when you need him?

Despite the Verbal Coup, Potus can still get his Agenda across the finish line. The Domestic Agenda of Health Care, Border Wall, Military improvement, Tax Reform, Illegal Immigration, and Manufacturing Jobs are all doable. It is unlikely that Potus can do much about Deficit and Debt in the near term. However, he needs to develop a sound strategy to accomplish the rest. Anything less than complete accomplishment will be perceived as failure. However, if that is the scenario, I hope that the Democrats Calculus for 2018 is incorrect and members of the Democratic leadership will be persuaded to retire young or in discontent.

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS TOP

The President’s Domestic problems are Speaker Ryan and Main Stream Media. Speaker Ryan is a Democrat in Republican clothing. Potus will not accomplish his goals if Speaker Ryan is the lead or face promoting his agenda. Speaker Ryan is part of the swamp. Therefore, he must be part of the drainage. For a while, Speaker Ryan was able to mask his intentions but the mask is off. Speaker Ryan has sold out to the Left. Ryan did not support the Presidents candidacy, does not believe in the philosophy of the President, and will not promote the agenda of the Administration. Speaker Ryan must go.

The President needs to retrieve the street manual, in which he will find a section that says, good things come to those who wait but not to those who wait too late. It is time for Potus to fish or cut bait. By any bureaucratic means possible, the President must find someone else or demand a team effort to promote his Domestic agenda. It is inconceivable that the President will get to the promise land with Speaker Ryan, as his Chauffer.

To Speaker Ryan, ask not what the Republican Party can do for you but what you can do for the Republican Party. Your required action should be self-evident. The Administration and the Party need to move forward. Please do the right thing. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

After seven years of discontent, the Affordable Health Care proposal on the table is inadequate. After all these years, neither Party appears willing to provide a Single Payer Health Insurance solution. I find it difficult to believe that this is the best the Republican Party Law makers can draft. The principal architect is mentally inebriated from being too close to or too far from the project. The principal architect lacks the understanding and interpretation of the issue. It is impossible for him to construct a satisfactory plan. The segmentation of the Republican members of congress could lead to the demise of the Republican Party.

All is not lost but it is time for the President to get seriously focused. The President needs to launch his Veto Power. The President needs to be reminded, that he can veto anything that does not meet expectation. He should veto any Legislation that the Democrats seek to move forward that weaken his leadership. The President needs to employ Time, Focus, and Concentration and move all Campaign promises forward. On the subject of Campaign promises, The President needs to realize that the campaign is over. It is time for him to lead and manage the Agenda. Equally important he should communicate effectively with his media staff and not say anything contradictory after news conferences. As for the new FBI Director, Trey Gowdy would be an excellent pick.

The key segments of the Domestic Agenda are Health Care, Border Wall, Military improvement, Tax Reform, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, and Manufacturing Jobs. It is unlikely that the President can do much about Deficit and Debt in the near term. However, he needs to develop a sound strategy to accomplish the rest. Anything less than complete accomplishment will be perceived as failure.

Health Care:

The slowness of Health Care legislation indicates that perhaps there is unwillingness. Perhaps, congress has no answer consistent with the varying philosophies on the table. Perhaps, Country should move to a Single Payer system with subsidy consistent with a means test. The question that must be answered for Health Care legislation to be a success is: how do we provide access to Health Care for millions of Americans who cannot afford the cost.

The problem with Health Care legislation is that Americans have lost concern for their fellow citizens. Discussions about Health Care provision for Americans has become all about money. For members of congress who continue to raise the issue of cost to provide reasonable Health Care for American citizens, when was the last time that you were concerned with the cost of Pensions, Health benefits, and Security after retirement from Government Service. How is that cost incorporated in the budget. Is that part of the “Entitlements”, and if so why not reduce the amount. If it is not part of the “Entitlements”, then where in the budget is it. Could it be that appropriation is classified?

Border Wall:

As for the border, not all sections will have a constructive wall. In sections where geography prevents the equivalent of a wall there should be a fortification of cameras with drones to monitor. Building a wall at the border is a good thing. Those in opposition are short sighted and need to look beyond the apparent. The Mexicans are good people and while the wall will restrict their migration, they are simply victims of Geographical location.

The wall is about preventing uncontrolled and unlawful entry to the United States from the South. To assume that Mexicans are the only people using that route is fallacious. Such an assumption is inaccurate and will ultimately result in making an ass of you and me. It is not only Mexicans crossing the Southern border. People from Central and South America, the Middle East, Asia, and even Africa are entering the United States via the Southern border.

If you were near the Southern border at Nogales Arizona, Tijuana California, Juarez New Mexico, or Brownsville Texas and saw a Male or Female that you knew was not Black or White; would you be able to tell if that person was Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern just by looking at them. Let us say you determined accurately that the person was Hispanic, could you determine if that person was Mexican, Guatemalan, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Brazilian, Argentinean, etc. I guarantee that better than Ninety Percent of you could not, even if you spoke with the person briefly and they responded in English.

Did you know that depending on the Light Index and your direction or location, someone you assume is Mexican, could be from Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, India, or Afghanistan? There are other countries that I could mention but that list is consistent with keeping it simple, so that you get the point.

No wall is Impenetrable but I find it difficult to believe that someone who made a living building Towers intends to construct a Picket Fence, above and below ground level. As a backup, there will be adequate military assets and work force to provide support 24/7. Frankly, I believe Engineers can design a two-wall construction with physical deterrent material between. Tunnels will not be safe or untouched from the construction. Tunnels will be discovered and destroyed. Homeland security might leave some Tunnels open but use them as collection points. To preserve greatness, progress, success, and happiness; building a wall is action required.

Military improvement:

Military improvement should be an easy goal to accomplish. It appears that there was a move afoot to decimate the Military. Our military needs to have an abundance of tools to defend Country. The Military needs to stay advanced and ahead to deal with the threats. The North Korean threat is not going away. The time is now, to deal conclusively with North Korea and prepare for Iran.

The North Korean confrontation is clearly the prelude to World War 3 but that war is years in the future. US North Korea confrontation is several years late but it is better to be late than never. Country is faced with never and that has to be averted. China realizes that today it is the US and tomorrow it will be China. North Korea nuclear ability must be destroyed. North Korea is noise in a quiet zone.

The noise must be silenced. Diplomacy is not an option at this time. Diplomacy came and went. Nuclear Technology is in the hands of the wrong person, specifically Kim jong Un. It is time to begin the scale back of proliferation. North Korea chose to be the starting point. You have to start somewhere if there is any hope of maintaining civilization. As long as my Brothers and Cousins do not blink too long, the goal will be accomplished – “Stop Nuclear Proliferation” and the provocateurs who promote.

Tax Reform:

The intent of Tax reform is to provide an economic stimulus and boost. It will benefit business especially entrepreneurs. It is debatable if employees will benefit. My concern is parts of the revised code will benefit employees but other parts might not after the Senate is through constructing the legislation. Regardless, Potus has an excellent idea, especially regarding Inheritance taxation. Tax reform will not be easy legislation because the Government has grown accustom to taking money.

Deficit and Debt:

Politicians have demonstrated that the Deficit is less important than Tax cuts. Tax cuts for the affluent is more important than helping fellow Americans in need. Quite candidly, politicians’ talking about deficit and the size thereof is a façade. It is merely tongue and cheek chatter because they created the deficit. The deficit be damned, we the politicians are obligated to repay our campaign contributors. Some politicians are Leopards. They cannot change their spots. The voters are not important. Their pledge to America is a charade. I thought that if you ran for public office the understanding was you were making a pledge to serve the people.

Since the financial crisis of 2008, Deficit and Debt is affecting State and Local governments. The fact is, individuals, Cities, Sates, Country, and the World is on a deficit to Debt path. Quite candidly, with the exception of China a country manufacturing things, one could argue that all countries are in one of two categories – Declared or Undeclared Debt.

The impact of Deficit to Debt on individuals is a bottomless pit of continued high unemployment, Foreclosures, astronomical credit card debt, and the increasing inability of decent human beings to afford necessities. At the same time, Local and State governments are increasing taxes but reducing the quality of services and contribution to Education. States that are in the Declared Debt category are CT, NY, OH, and CA. Others will declare soon.

The trend is reversible. However, it has to be done constructively and not by politicians running around like chicken without heads spewing vitriol or seeking to take away the right of unions to engage in Collective Bargaining. Neither will it be resolved by recklessly slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens. Frankly, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could create the age-old condition of two wrongs does not make a right.

In this world climate of unrest and citizens demanding actual Democracy as opposed to lip service of the ideology, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could be a recipe for disaster. The recipe and the meal could be on exhibit at a State near you.

Illegal Immigration:

Illegal immigration is a Trojan horse with the sides exposed. In essence, it is transparent and the occupants are visible.

We cannot continue to ignore Illegal Immigration. Any consideration of Amnesty for individuals in country illegally is the equivalent of allowing an invasion. An invasion condones importing criminals, Terrorists, and foreign diseases. Changing current Immigration Laws to accommodate invaders will demonstrate disrespect for citizens, the children of fallen soldiers, and legal immigrants.

Employing illegal immigrants at low wages and ignoring unemployed citizens is wrong. Employing illegal immigrants at low wages is temporary and unsustainable. Think about it, are you doing the same job that your parents did? Do you seriously think that the children of illegal immigrants will? If not, then what.

The fact is illegal immigrants in low wage occupation will not affect you. However, your children and Great Grandchildren will be competing with the descendants of illegal immigrants in the workplace. Consistently, the 14th Amendment MUST be amended. The 14th Amendment where it allows for the preposterous Anchor baby must and should be revised otherwise it will ultimately disenfranchise children born of Legal Permanent residents, Naturalized, and Natural born citizens.

The simple required amendment to the 14th Amendment should read as follows:

You are a citizen if and only if your mother was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to your conception.

Prior to your conception means that at the time of your birth and the gestation period is determined and concluded your mother must have valid proof that she was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to the commencement of said gestation period.

In essence, if it is determined by the medical community that your mother gave birth to you in 9 months, your mother MUST have been a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen for more than 9 months before the date of your birth.

Manufacturing Jobs:

The loss of Manufacturing Jobs is the basis for our economic woes. Those jobs were sent off shore. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs created displaced workers who cannot pay their mortgages or purchase goods and services. To suggest that the workers most of whom have a High School Diploma and between the age of 50 and 70 should now go to Community Colleges and re-train is adding insult to injury. It is also undemocratic because you are taking their choice away. Besides, all jobs are important to sustain Country.

There was a time when just about everything was made in the USA. Now nothing or very little is. What can we do about that, you say. Simply refuse to purchase the merchandise. Personally, if the merchandise is not made in the Western Hemisphere, I do not buy. Yes, I actively read the labels to see where the product was manufactured.

Finally, we have a President who understands that Country and Empire will only be great if there is a manufacturing base. The manufacturing base has to be supported and strong.

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS BOTTOM

ISSUES 2017 AND BEYOND (NATIONAL AND GLOBAL)

issues-2017

The key issues facing our nation now and beyond are: Unemployment, Manufacturing Jobs, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, Homosexuality, Declining morality by our elected officials, Campaign Financing, Pakistan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Uprising in the Middle East, Turmoil in Africa, inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea, and growing friction with China.

Unemployment:

Unemployment will be reduced when the cockamamie NAFTA philosophy is tossed. High Unemployment will go away when our Manufacturing Jobs return. Unemployment will be reduced when corporations off shoring manufacturing and Technology Jobs to India and China are taxed as opposed to receiving incentives. Nothing less will stop the hemorrhage of jobs. Unemployment is a sore. Applying a band-aid in the form of stimulus initiatives as was the approach of the previous Administration will not heal this huge sore.

A tax cut for the Affluent to get limited employment benefits for the poor was unconscionable. It is fine to be rich and all right to want to be rich. Unfortunately, no country has ever stayed rich when the number of people in poverty increase. A quick check is look at Haiti. Meaningful tax cuts must include poor people.

Until recently, the Republican leaders were making a lot of noise but the truth is they had no new ideas. Running for President was just a resume builder and honorable mention in the History books. The current Tax cuts did not produce any significant new Jobs. In fact, we have lost more jobs since. The unemployment rate of 10.0 percent is evidence of that. There is no indication whether by Inductive or Deductive reasoning that current Tax cuts will enable the creation of significant new jobs. If current Tax cuts have not created jobs specifically between 2008 and 2016, then what is the reasoning behind this great expectation. I fail to see the Harvest in that idea and the American people are hungry for a resolution. Fortunately, we have a President who understands that Country and Empire will only be great if there is a manufacturing base. A base that has to be supported and strong.

Manufacturing Jobs:

Bring back our Manufacturing sector. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs is the basis for our economic woes. Those jobs were sent off shore. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs created displaced workers who cannot pay their mortgages or purchase goods and services. To suggest that the workers most of whom have a High School Diploma and between the age of 50 and 70 should now go to Community Colleges and re-train is adding insult to injury. It is also undemocratic because you are taking their choice away.

In essence, if it is determined by the medical community that your mother gave birth to you in 9 months, your mother MUST have been a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen for more than 9 months before the date of your birth.

Abortion:

I am in favor of abortion and the woman’s right to choose. However, I am not in favor of State sponsored abortion except in cases of Rape and Incest. Even then, I am only in favor of abortion before the end of the 1st Trimester. With experience as a Biochemistry major, there is no explanation for not knowing you are pregnant at some point in the first three months of pregnancy.

Homosexuality:

Homosexuality along with financial decline appears to be the curse of Empires. For the astute, who take the time to read the History books those two conditions were included in the demise of the Greek and Roman empires. Homosexuality has been integral to the demise of communities since the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The choice is yours, you can accept or not. Frankly, I do not believe the recent floods, Tornados, fires, earthquakes, and tidal waves are inexplicable or mere natural occurrences. The choice is yours, believe it or not.

Same sex marriage, right. It has a nice ring to it. Doesn’t it? I do not know about you but I grew up with the understanding, that marriage was the union between two people who had the potential to promote the maintenance and growth of the human race. Marriage was not intended to be the legitimization of fornication or the legalization of warped sexual orientation. You can do that through Civil unions or Common Law arrangements. Again, the choice is yours.

Personally, if I were still an undergraduate in college, marriage would not be a thought. Heterosexuals should stop getting married and establish relationships via commitment ceremonies. There are Attorneys available to draw up contracts or binding obligations. Heterosexuals do not need to be part of any institution that charge fees for licenses and higher taxes. Fees as revenue, is the only reason why local governments support same sex marriages.

Declining morality by our elected officials:

Social Media is beneath the standards that Politicians should maintain. When I was a child, Politicians would not consider much less participate in such trite, trivia, and frivolity. Congressman Weiner’s experience is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Congressman Weiner was the first of many who will have their reputation and integrity ruined by tweeting. Politics and Social media are at separate ends of the civics spectrum. You can try to mix oil and water if you wish but unless you are Winston Churchill with the intent to light a fire to destroy the Germans on High seas you will burn like Congressman Weiner.

I do not subscribe to the expectations that our politicians should be Lilly white. However, while in office I expect your conduct to be beyond reproach.

Campaign Financing:

The political campaign process is flawed. Fund raising has eliminated the common person from participation in our Republic. The television Network media has kidnapped the Election process. Hence, the price or investment tag has become astronomical and well above the pay grade of most academically accomplished and capable citizens.

Money or the access to it has become the significant criteria. In addition, survival of character assassination is now the final frontier. Ability and love of country is irrelevant. Character assassination would have eliminated many of our Founding fathers from participation in our Republic. Jefferson with all his financial debt would not have a chance to run for President.

The political system has become Selective rather than Elective. Political incumbents with the help of the media have succeeded in persuading the electorate to believe in the nebulous concepts of Electability and Name recognition. Electability does not equate to performance. Voters are being fed ineptitude wrapped in Electability and Name recognition through advertisement.

It is flawed thinking to conclude that one candidate has more experience than the other to be President. No one has experience dealing with the evolving issues of the world. A candidate’s ability to deal with these issues can be determined during the campaign.

Candidates are now claiming to bring change to the Table, including change in the form of a woman or black. Given such an eventuality one would still be required to prove how good and for whom. The question is, will this change be effective in dealing with the key issues.

Because of the flawed political campaign process, No longer is every citizen born with the potential to become President of the USA. In fact, there is a greater potential that a child born in the USA will be a soldier, sent to a foreign country in defense of some cockamamie philosophy, and return in a body bag. The irony is a soldier fortunate to escape the ultimate sacrifice still has very little chance of being President of the USA because odds are he or she will not get noticed by the selection committee of the political parties. Even after risking their lives in defense of our nation, veterans are experiencing all kinds of challenges from Housing to Medical.

Pakistan:

The Government of Pakistan has all but abdicated its responsibility to rule. Benazir Bhutto is quaking in her grave. Pakistan is a volcano ready to erupt. Any attempt to refute the reality on the ground is simply denial.

Pakistan’s military assets are in danger of being confiscated. That is the objective of Taliban and Al-Qaeda extremists. I envision an abbreviated life for the current Pakistani government. NATO forces had better prepare for the impact of this eventuality. Power ill-gotten is not sustainable.

Monetary aid to Pakistan is a waste of money that can be better spent on our economic needs here at home. Charity begins at home.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan:

Leaving Iraq was a mistake and hopefully we have a contingency plan to return. Iraq will not be stable anytime soon. The challenge will be how stable is unstable in Iraq. What levels of instability in Iraq will be acceptable? If Israel’s peaceful existence is threatened by Iraq’s instability, then what? Remember Iran borders Iraq.

Winning the war in Afghanistan is necessary. Comments to the contrary by Russian and international card-carrying members of the Truce society, is not an option. Since Genghis khan Truce has not worked in Afghanistan.

Action delayed will be resolution denied. NATO forces must cleanse the Swat valley and southeastern Afghanistan of Taliban and Al-Qaeda extremists to win this war. NATO forces must be relentless. NATO forces must cease conducting Police action. You cannot have a police call in the military before you create the trash. If NATO forces have forgotten how to create high-density debris, then they need to consult the World War II playbook.

This conflict will get unavoidably messy, but action delayed will be resolution denied. Multi-tasking is not a strong attribute of warfare. Forget about the civilian involvement and Journalist crowding the stage. Simply put you confront the enemy, defeat the enemy, and now how may we help. Perhaps we will but then again maybe we will not.

Uprising in the Middle East:

The Governments of the Arabic speaking countries in the Middle East will change. The question is change to what. Citizens have been suffering for decades and have finally arrived at the breaking point. History has shown that there is a limit to how much the human spirit will take. Even from the days of Anwar Sadat, there were signs that the Egyptians were not exactly “walking like an Egyptian”.

Fact is there will not be any peace in the Middle East between Israel and the Arab countries anytime soon. The sad truth is the only solution for peace between the Israeli and the Palestinians maybe to split the land. I consider this option because Lord Balfour promised Israel and the Palestinians the same parcel of Land in 1951. The only problem is, Israel will consider that option but the Palestinians may not be interested. How do we resolve this impasse, only God knows?

People in the Middle East have evolved through the days of Monarchy, and Military rule. Now it is time for the development of interim Governments, and the building and completion of a democratic path forward that will transform countries into Civilian rule supported by military for security.

Uprising in the Middle East will have a good ending for the United States and the international community. The people in the Middle East, now know that the international community is on their side based on our show of support for their cause. This will change their thinking about Americans. No regime in the Middle East will be immune from the uprising fervor. As long as we Americans show our human side, we will change the hearts and minds of the Arabic people. The people now know that Americans get it. We know that they do not want reforms but rather change. We know that they want change now, starting with the departure of Autocracy and Military rule.

Turmoil in Africa:

The Libyan uprising was but a small portion of Turmoil on the African Continent. I stress continent for the benefit of politicians who probably still believe Africa is a country. The Sudan, South Africa, Tunisia, Botswana, Liberia, Somalia, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast are countries with issues that must be resolved sooner than later and there are others.

Fact is most of the politicians have no idea where these countries are or anything about the History of these Nations. Therefore, it is not likely that they have or will ever have any constructive approach to resolutions.

Inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea:

Silence is golden but also revealing. Iran has not given up their quest to destroy Israel, quite the contrary.

Iran is unfinished business. Thanks very much to the worst President in my lifetime, the honorable Jimmy Carter. The Iranian regime is not going away. Wishing on a star or burying your head in the sand like an Ostrich will not resolve the issue. Anyone who thought that Iran was building nuclear plants for Energy purposes is in denial. If the international community fails to act, then Israel will. It is not if but when and how will Israel act. The Iranian regime will be monitoring.

North Korea is a run-away child running wild in search of attention, which undoubtedly becomes a distraction from more important matters as Afghanistan and the need to respond to Piracy off the coast of Somalia. North Korea has decided that it will defiantly stomp its missiles until wants are met. The only problem is, those wants have not been articulated publicly to the world community. The public assumption is that they would like to be a Nuclear power, which unless they are able to win the sub-plot to World War III they will not or should not be allowed to achieve.

Frankly, I think we should render the Armistice of 1953 null and void, restart the Korean War, and soundly defeat the crackpot regime for the last time. The scenario reminds me of a Nursery Rhyme with a little bit of a twist. Some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in the pot 63 years old. That maybe a harsh analysis but my first impression is usually right and only incorrect if I rethink. The civilized world may have to revise the map of the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea will strike against South Korea militarily, it is more likely than not. North Korea will open a Pandora’s Box whose lid would have been best kept closed. However, the occurrence, which appears inevitable, will serve, as a reminder to the world community, that Action delayed is resolution denied.

The growing friction with China:

Did you know that the Chinese are stockpiling oil and buying up any interest in fossil fuel, in countries such as Burma and on the African continent? Did you hear that the Chinese are building some military looking facility in Brazil? Did you hear that the Architect who built the Twin Towers is building “The World Financial Center” in China? A significant number of our manufacturing and Technology Jobs were off shored to China and corporations are receiving tax incentives for their valor.

Will your politician have the ability to review, articulate, and engender a constructive response. Surely, you do not suppose that all the above are mere coincidence. If you do, then let me remind you that there is no such thing as coincidence.

The key issues facing our nation now and beyond are: Unemployment, Manufacturing Jobs, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, Homosexuality, Declining morality by our elected officials, Campaign Financing, Pakistan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Uprising in the Middle East, Turmoil in Africa, inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea, and growing friction with China.
