Obamites Try Saving Obama’s Sinking Legacy

A blithering idiot recently said, “Last I checked, Obama did not bankrupt our country… We are not in a recession… We have strong job growth… and we have lower oil prices…. but yeah we have to constantly hear racist remarks, hes muslim, hes a terrorist… We are a LOT BETTER than we were in January 20 2009.”
Doubling the national debt from $9 trillion to more than $19 trillion constitutes bankruptcy. That happened THROUGHOUT Obama’s administration. That IS Obama’s legacy, along with countless other political and social gaffs that have resurrected racial tensions throughout America from their 1970s ashes, hobbled economic growth, and greatly harmed our nation as a whole.  Those of you who believe otherwise are living in a dream world, one measured not by facts, rational thought, sound reasoning and good judgement, but by how sweet-sounding you can make your idiotic rhetoric sound to one another.  You are, in every Biblical sense of the definition, fools.  You cannot save Obama’s sinking legacy with the same rhetoric that doomed you from the start.
 
We are NOT better than we were back in January 20,2009. In fact, we were poised to exit a relatively minor recession very quickly. Obama’s blitheringly idiotic and rather Keynesian economic policies GREATLY prolonged our recovery by filtering the people’s money via taxes through the highly inefficient and grossly sub-par rate of return (about 70% below the break-even point of 1.0) instead of allowing the people to keep those funds and use them as they saw fit, rebuilding their businesses, paying rent – whatever was needed. Those funds, injected directly into the economy by millions of consumers making good, economic choices right for them has always had a FAR greater and more positive effect on the nation’s economy as a whole than ANY government funded program, much less a government-funded “recovery.”
 
In fact, your comment underscores the primary problem of Demoncraps and Libtards: You always claim every positive thing as a victory for your cause without having the SLIGHTEST freaking clue as to its source, much less the nature of cause an effect. I’ll bet if you found a penny in the street, you’d say, “Thanks, Obama!” but if you stepped in poo you’d blame it on Bush and Trump.” It’s idiots like you that got us into our current and horrific brink of disaster mess by voting for other idiots like Obama and the Demoncrap half of Congress who haven’t the slightest clue about economics, much less how to turn a nation a strong world competitor-partner.
 
I don’t know of a nicer way to put it than to say, “You Demoncraps and libtards suck. You don’t have slightest clue as to what you’re talking about or what you’re doing. You’ve made a horrible mess of things, and anything positive that’s happened over the last eight years has occurred IN SPITE OF your idiotic gyrations, not because of them. It’s time for you to SHUT UP and use the next eight years to study REALITY for a change. You tried idealism, and look where it got us? Yeah. So shut up, already.”
 
Meanwhile, the economy — including both the stock market as well as a huge influx of new jobs — surged away from Obama’s sinking legacy immediately AFTER Trump won. Obama’s fudged low unemployment FAILS to count any of the unprecedented number (>50%) of non-employed workers throughout the United States. Read up on the BLS website for U1-U6. None of them count workers who have given up working for jobs, often moving in with friends or family, because there are no jobs or other options. NOW we have jobs. NOW they have options. AFTER Obama, in the TRUMP era.
 
No, Trump is no God. He’s certainly not perfect, either. But as a highly successful multi-corporate Chief Executive Officer, Trump has repeatedly demonstrated he has what it takes — including the smarts — to lead the Chief Executive Office of these United States by hiring the right collection of experts who are not cronies and who stand the greatest probability of actually fixing many of America’s many problems.
You had your chance with Obama.  He blew it.
It’s our turn, and if you would please, children, get and keep your God-damned fingers out of the pie.
In the meantime, here’s a little history lesson for the blithering idiots:

“Back in the 1960s and 1970s, Milton Friedman challenged the Keynesians over how monetary policy works. (John Maynard Keynes was dead, so did not directly argue the point.) Keynesians viewed stimulative monetary policy as helping the economy through lower interest rates, which increased spending by consumers and businesses.

“Friedman’s masterpiece study A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960 convinced him that they driver was money supply growth rather than interest rates.

“Friedman won the battle, and monetary policy was accepted by most economists as a money supply matter. During the recent recession, however some younger members of the profession [including Obama and his advisors] rediscovered old-fashioned Keynesianism.”

VOTE TRUMP

A former United States Navy Pilot (Naval Flight Officer/Aviator) asks Hillary Clinton a VALID question.

As a former United States Air Force Navigator (Air Force Flight Office/Aviator) with nearly identical training, background and security clearance, I wholeheartedly concur with the point he makes: “As a Naval flight officer I held a Top Secret Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI) clearance that provided me access to materials and information hHillary Clintonighly sensitive to our warfighting capabilities. Had I communicated this information not following prescribed protocols, I would have been prosecuted and imprisoned. Secretary Clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who were and are entrusted with America’s most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security?

Her response DOES NOT MATTER.

What matters is her disdain and the vitriol painted all over her face. This military officer raises a perfectly valid point to which Hillary’s only response is utter disdain. If that’s her BEST response to our nation’s military in a public forum during during an election year, immediatly prior to the election, how do you think she will respond to valid military advice once in office?

She doesn’t care. She ALONE thinks she knows better than the MILLIONS of American members of the Armed Forces, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and all other highly trained people with exceptional skills and experience in all our agencies entrusted with such information.

SHE JUST DOESN’T GET IT. She is oblivious to the fact that certain information MUST be protected at all costs, that both American and foreign lives are at stake should that information get out, and that some information, if released, could lead to war, costing tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and even millions of American lives.

SHE DOESN’T GET IT. She is absolutely CLUELESS, and the lives of our sons and daughters (if not our own) hang in the balance.

Her own attitude and rampantly criminal behavior has utterly disqualified herself from having access to ANY classified information, yet she wants to be the President of the United States? Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?

She is utterly, absolutely PATHETIC. Totally unqualified for the position. In fact, forty years of her own experience and behavior DISQUALIFIES her, beginning with her being FIRED from the Watergate investigation for “gross ethical violations” to her being fired, by Obama, no less, for the same damned thing as Secretary of State. If she were to apply for a job involving access to classified information in ANY country, no country in the WORLD would EVER hire her, including the United States of America.

If you’re voting for Johnson, STOP. The goal is no longer about voting for your favorite candidate. The goal is to prevent Hillary from getting into office AT ALL COSTS. She absolutely can NOT be entrusted with classified information, much less the vaunted and critical position as the executive office of the world’s most powerful country.

This isn’t a popularity contest, people. This issue is extremely serious and the stakes are very, very high. You own lives, and the lives of millions of other Americans, including your children are DEFINITELY hanging in the balance.

We live in a global economy. Trump has already established good relations with both Russia and China. His unparalled successs with 515 successful businesses and just 5 failures is absolutely unheard of in the business world, where less tha 20% of all ventures succeed. Trump’s success rate blows past all odds at 99.029%, putting him well into the top 1% of most successful businessmen of all time. By comparison, all Hillary has “accomplished” is the widespread, wholesale, and TRAITOROUS trade of American favors compromising our national security in exchange for millions, if not billions of dollars in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. If you don’t believe me, just go to YouTube and search Clinton Cash for the scathingly detailed and accurate revelation of Hillary’s and Bill’s horrendous violations of our nation’s most precious endeavors (it’s called “traitorism,” people). Alternatively, just follow the link: https://youtu.be/7LYRUOd_QoM

Hillary Clinton absolutely MUST be stopped AT ALL COSTS, and you can NOT acomplish that by voting for Johnson.

Only Donald J. Trump has the backing to win this election, but ONLY if you actually get out and VOTE for him.

We’ve been down this road not once, but FIVE TIMES in the last forty years, and it has ALWAYS gotten us NOWHERE. It’s time to GET OFF the madness train and do something RIGHT for a change. VOTE TRUMP.

Thank you.

Donald J. Trump is the only clear choice for America

Whether Male, Female, African, Caucasoid, Northeast Asia, Arctic Asia, Southeast Asia, America, or New Guinea & Australia — whatever — I do not care. All I care about is ensuring my vote goes to the most highly qualified individual who actually stands a reasonable chance of being elected.
 
The following candidates have been (1) nominated by their party for the presidency and (2) featured in at least three major national polls:
 
Donald Trump (Republican) / Mike Pence
Hillary Clinton (Democrat) / Time Kaine
Jill Stein (Green Party, formerly Democrat) / Ajamu Baraka
Gary Johnson (Libertarian, formerly Republican) / Bill Weld
 
Countless objective, professional polls taken in each state, throughout all fifty states, consistently show both Jill Stein and Gary Johnson so far back in the pack they haven’t a snowball’s chance in hell of winning even one state, much less the election. Johnson consistently receives between 1/3 and 1/15, averaging 1/6 the results of either Trump of Clinton in all states. Stein’s votes average 1/3 of Johnson’s,for about 1/18 that of either Trump or Clinton. While both are way too far behind to ever win, votes cast for them can have a significant effect on whether Trump or Clinton wins. Case in point, today’s (August 26) results for Florida, with Clinton (44%), Trump (42%), Johnson (6%), Stein (2%), and other (6%) falls smack dab along the mean.
 
Jill Stein simply isn’t qualified.  She spent her entire career as a medical doctor.  She simply does not have either the education, training, or experience running large organizations.  With just 2% of the vote, a vote for Stein is a vote tossed out the window.
Gary Johnson is certainly qualified, but again, with just 6% of the vote, you’re tossing your votes out the window with him, as well.
Put simply, votes for either Gary Johnson or Jill Stein are WASTED. They could (and should) be used to select the better of the only two individuals who can actually win the election. If you honestly feel both Trump and Clinton are equal, meaning you do not feel one or the other would be better (or worse) for our nation, then by all means vote for Stein or Johnson. Or, you could stay home and save time and gas money. But if you believe that either Trump or Clinton is significantly better (or worse) than the other, please do your civic duty and make a difference by saying so with your vote, rather than tossing it away on the already lost Johnson or Stein.
 
When all aspects of both Trump and Clinton are examined, I see only one clear path to success for America’s future, and that’s with Trump. His leadership, business skills and financial/economic acumen far exceed those of Hillary Clinton. He is clearly the only one of the two who possesses the requisite integrity required for the position. Finally, because of Clinton’s deeply soiled reputation, she will not be able to attract anyone of noteworthy capability to the various economic posts, and those she does find will almost certainly be as unscrupulous and incompetent as she’s been herself.
 
This leads me to only one clear choice for our next President of the United States, and that’s Donald J. Trump.

It’s time We the People work smarter, not harder. Begin with reality and proceed from their. If Gary Johnson were in the running, I’d have no problem voting for him. But Johnson is not in the running. Trump is. There’s far too much at stake here, namely making dang sure that Hillary doesn’t win. There’s no way in hell I will fail to cast a deciding vote on that issue by wasting it on a candidate like Johnson who doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Clinton.

Unfavorable ratings, bimodality, competence, and realty

A recent article said, “Trump is viewed unfavorably by 67 percent of Americans overall.  Big whoop.  The authors would like you to believe that somehow translates into an element of undesirability or an inability to beat the opposition.

WRONG!

Ratings of unfavorability measure a candidate’s clarity, and are NOT indicative of their popularity or their ability to defeat the opposing party’s candidate. Clarity heightens bimodality, which in turn raises the percentage of those who swear they would vote against a candidate. Meanwhile, candidates who are unclear on the issues have a much lower disapproval rating.
 
What actually MATTERS is three-fold:
 
1. Do they have both the education and experience to fix the problems facing our country, and the leadership skills to forge the path to success?
 
2. Do they have the savvy to know what works vs the idealism to try what they think will work (but probably won’t)?  Idealism never solved any problem, and never will.  It has, however, lead many nations down the primrose path to destruction.
3.  Will their supporting votes (the only ones that matter) be enough to beat the supporting votes of the opposition?
For some reason, a number of blitheringly idiotic people continue to highlight Trump’s unfavorability rating as if it had anything to do with reality.  If our country had a bimodal voting system, where you could cast one positive vote for the candidate of your choice as well as a negative vote against the candidate you think would be the worst in office, then unfavorability ratings would matter.
Since our voting system involves only one positive vote, however, unfavorable ratings simply do not matter.
Get over it.

Did Ben Carson Lie About A West Point “Scholarship?”

Question:  Did Carson lie about being offered a “full scholarship” to West Point?

Evidence (according to Politico):

1.  In his book, “Gifted Hands,” Carson describes a 1969 meeting with Gen. William Westmoreland — fresh off four years of directing the U.S. military strategy in Vietnam — that Carson said resulted in being offered a “full scholarship” to West Point.

2.  Carson’s campaign admitted that the former neurosurgeon not only fabricated the story of his acceptance into the prestigious military academy, but he never actually applied. This concession came after Politico obtained evidence from a West Point spokesperson that the academy has no record of Carson’s application or his admission — calling into question a key piece of the presidential hopeful’s personal history.

3.  “Dr. Carson was the top ROTC student in the city of Detroit,” Barry Bennett, Carson’s campaign manager, told Politico. “In that Ben Carsonrole he was invited to meet General Westmoreland. He believes it was at a banquet. He can’t remember with specificity their brief conversation but it centered around Dr. Carson’s performance as ROTC city executive officer.  He was introduced to folks from West Point by his ROTC supervisors,” Bennett continued in his email to Politico. “They told him they could help him get an appointment based on his grades and performance in ROTC. He considered it but in the end did not seek admission.”

My take on it:  To a young individual who does not fully understand the appointment system to the U.S. service academies, being told West Pointby folks at West Point that they can help you obtain an appointment can certainly seem like you’re being told that you’ve been offered a scholarship.  Obtaining an appointment, however, is only half the process.  You must still be selected by board.  If Carson was indeed the top ROTC student in the city of Detroit with high grades, however, then changes were high that he’d have been selected — IF he could obtain an actual appointment, which is NOT an easy accomplishment.

3.  The West Point spokesperson told Politico it’s entirely possible that Westmoreland spoke to the 17-year-old Carson and perhaps encouraged the young ROTC student to consider applying to the academy. However, Politico questions whether that fabled encounter with the famous general even took place.

Although Politico tends to have a Republican tilt, it sounds to me like the media is seeking to shed light on the principle danger of electing Carson to the White House:  He’s way out of his league.  Whether or not he actually lied or was simply sharing his inexperienced perspective using terms he know is beside the point.  He walked into this landmine.  He’s a newbie stumbling along, ready to stumble headlong into numerous political traps.  Is that the kind of leader our country needs in these dangerous times?  Don’t get me wrong, as he is by no means “stupid,” and I do admire his religious convictions.  The world of medicine, however, is not a suitable training ground for becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the world.  Combined with his pension for refusing to see the Constitution for what it is, word for word, I really don’t think he’s the right man for the job.

Ben Carson just doesn’t have what it takes to navigate the tough political landscape of Washington D.C., much less the world at large.

Trump, on the other hand, does have what it takes, not only with respect to politics, but also with respect to business, and if you haven’t figured it out, yet, America survives and thrives on its global economic and business ties.

Who is Best at Running a Country? Patriots and Businessmen vs Lawyers and Career Politicians

When it comes to running a country well, you need two things:

Patriots:  These people have their priorities in order:  God, Country, and Family.  They also aren’t afraid to back down from a running the countryfight.  In fact, if you attack one or more of their priorities, a fight is exactly what you’ll get.  Unlike Demoncraps and Libturds (Democrats and Liberals), Patriots will not compromise on essential principles, nor are they in the game just for themselves.

Without Patriots, the United States of America would never have been created, nor would we have survived, much less thrived as a country.

Businessmen:  These folks understand the hard, cold realities of business, where companies don’t have the luxury of raising prices running the countrywithout competition (i.e. raising taxes) every time they need to cover their ineptitude.  Instead, they learn, often the hard way, to get it right.  In big business, you don’t just balance budgets. You’re always looking for ways to do things better, smarter, and cheaper, because that’s what it takes to stay in business and remain competitive with the ever-innovative competition.

Trump’s advantage over Hillary is two-fold:  First, he’s a LOT smarter than Obama, whereas Hillary is probably on par with Valerie JarrettObama.  Valerie Jarrett is just plain wrong on that point.  Obama is an idealistic imbecile.  The fact that Jarrett sees him as “brilliant” doesn’t say much about Jarrett.  Do we really need four years of the same?  Should we risk eight?  Yeah, I don’t think so!

Second, when Patriots and Businessmen run our country, we thrive. We prosper.  When Lawyers and Career Politicians run our country, they run it into the ground because they haven’t the slightest clue as to how to run a country.

running the country

Have you ever examined what’s on the curricula of most political science degrees?  This is the most common degree obtained by both lawyers and politicians before going to law school or entering politics.  It’s ridiculous!  It’s all but totally void of common business functions such economics, accounting, and finance, much less any technological aspect such as math, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.

Lacking the proper education, most lawyers and career politicians are clueless.  They know how to write law, but they don’t know running the countrywhat laws should be written.  They know how to politic their way up through the political system, but when it comes to making decisions that actually benefit society, they are literally without a clue, and are often driven by the ridiculous liberal propaganda, which is little more than a retread of the Communist Manifesto, itself craft by a blithering idiot and ignorant idealist named Marx who never once found any modicum of success in his own life.

That’s a valid source for how to run a country?  I think not!  Any historian could tell you that!

Sadly, not only do we have such lawyers and career politicians embedded throughout our government, but we also have far to running the countrymany ignorant voters who simply never learned why such policies are bad, no matter how good they sound.  As a result, these voters keep reelecting the blithering idiots back into office.

That’s no way to run a country, people.  Come on – wise up!

The Problem with U.S. Birthright Citizenship

The concept of birthright citizenship was applicable back in 1776, when travel between countries was measured in months. It’s not applicable today, except for children whose parents are themselves are U.S. citizens or here under legal provisions and enrolled in the process to become U.S. citizens.

The concept of “birthright citizenship” is it no longer used by any modern industrialized nation except the U.S., and for good reason.  Everyone born in country winds up winds up being an American citizen, regardless of the nationality or even the legality of their parents.  As practiced by the U.S., it is utter chaos, without controls, unsustainable, with severe negative repercussions on both our economy and crime.  For example, the average crime rates committed by illegals and their children are many times greater (like 50 or 60) than those committed by proper U.S. citizens.  By “proper U.S. citizens,” I mean legal immigrants and their children.

Donald Trump recognizes this and wants to end birthright citizenship as it exists today.  Is that wise?  I think so, and for the same reasons given by other modern industrialized nations who ended the wide-open practice decades, if not centuries ago.  These arguments are nicely summed up in the February 3, 2015 post by Charles Wood on NumbersUSA.  In summary, unbridled birthright citizenship harms a nation by forfeiting control over the nation’s future.  Do you really want outsiders who neither understand nor agree with American values casting votes in U.S. elections?  I don’t, as that would be absurd!  Dual citizenship has never helped countries that offer it.  Instead, it merely dilutes national loyalty and allegiance.  The very concept of birthright citizens leads to massive influxes of illegal foreigners, upwards of 50 million in the last 50 years alone.  Welfare costs go through the roof.  Those costs aren’t paid for by the illegal immigrants or their children.  They’re paid for by you, I, and all other honest, hardworking Americans.  Finally, the practice makes it far more difficult to deport illegal immigrants who are parents of kids born in the U.S.

Opponents argue that repealing birthright citizenship somehow “hurts national interests,” is “unfair,” or that doing so would be “difficult.”

Of course it would be difficult!  It will be far more difficult, however, to deal with the messes created by allowing it to continue.  As for what’s “fair,” this is our country, not theirs.  It’s not fair to We the People to suffer the current and growing burdens of unbridled citizenship.  As for “national interests,” increasing national security while decreasing crime far eclipse any wrongly claimed “national interests” of giving freeloaders unbridled access to scare American resources.  As Wood (2015) clearly notes, “…these problems exist with or without Birthright Citizenship and discontinuing Birthright Citizenship would immediately remove one of the magnets which draws people to the United States illegally in the first place.”

I’m with Trump on this issue.  Get rid of birthright citizenship, at least with respect to anyone born of parents who are not here legally and or who have no intent to stay, or worse, have sinister goals in mind contrary to our national interests.  Let’s end the rampant Asian practice of “vacation babies” that allows wealthy Asians to gobble up our businesses and our land.  While we’re at it, we need to do away with dual citizenship, as well, at least once the child reaches the age of majority (18 years old).  You’re either an American or you’re not.  Make up your mind and take your stand.  If someone in college, I’ll give them until 23.

Regardless, we must end the dangerous and highly problematic practice of unbridled birthright citizenship, now.
