#MAGA Questions Requiring Immediate Answers
March 28, 2017
By Wallace Bruschweiler & William Palumbo…
Last week, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives failed to pass the one thing they have consistently preached since 2010: a repeal of Obamacare. It was the latest (and most severe) setback since President Trump took office just two months ago.
The fallout of this failure is a fiasco for Republicans and, in particular, President Trump. Before another Republican failure finds itself on the doorsteps of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, below are some questions for your, and the administration’s, serious consideration. To the following questions we offer no answers. It is the job of those in official positions to have solutions, and act on them urgently.
The answer is a complex yet simple one: George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and Hillary Clinton.
America’s Doomsday Clock ticks closer to Civil War
Things are happening so fast in the war between the left and the right in Washington that the American public could be drawn into a bloody confrontation sooner than anyone expected. Events of just the last week have pushed America’s Doomsday Clock further on toward a “mournful midnight” that ushers in the nation’s second civil war. The doomsday clock is now set at ten minutes after the eleventh hour. How soon will it tick off the remaining minutes? God only knows.
What has happened to move the hands forward so unexpectedly? First is the clear evidence that there is a dedicated opponent of our duly-elected president called the “Deep State” that is determined to force Donald Trump to resign or to compel Congress to impeach him. The Deep State is composed of holdover bureaucrats from the Obama administration, and a few still around from the Clinton years, who see President Trump as a threat to their careers and to their power in the evil swamp that has controlled Washington politics for decades. These denizens of Washington’s polluted political waters will use anything, including leaking classified documents to the press in an attempt to paint Trump as incompetent, corrupt, crazy and not fit to be president. This, of course, is a grave danger to the security of the nation, and that means it is treason. Such is the reality and the severity of the “Trump derangement syndrome” that has poisoned leftists’ thinking, driving them to the point of committing sedition to bring Trump’s presidency to an end.
Next is the growing menace of leftist-inspired campus violence directed at preventing conservatives from speaking at colleges and universities anywhere across the country. New instances occurred just days ago at Middlebury College in Vermont and again at UC Berkeley in California. Agitators have stepped up this violence to include physical assaults on those who come to hear conservatives speak. On top of this, riotous leftist protests are causing members of Congress to cancel town hall meetings and, in the case of Senator Marco Rubio, to close two of his local offices in Jacksonville and Tampa, Florida to prevent anarchist-driven protestors from upsetting nearby businesses.
Trump derangement syndrome has become so virulent that it’s now infecting well known members of Barack Obama’s administration, compelling at least one to go public urging anti-Trump protestors to engage in violence. The first of these is former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. WorldNetDaily reported this week: “Loretta Lynch has made an impassioned plea for more marching, blood and death on the streets” in a video that was posted to Senate Democrats as “words of inspiration.”
WND added: “The video…begins by stating that people are experiencing ‘great fear and uncertainty’ with the unstated implication this is due to Donald Trump’s take-over of the White House. Without offering any specifics, Lynch goes on to say that ‘our rights are being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.’ But her strongest words came in a statement that seems to suggest the answer is street action that will inevitably turn bloody and deadly.”
The Obama administration’s “police state” wire-tapping. And then there is news that Barack Obama, or at least someone in his administration, may have authorized the wire-tapping of Donald Trump’s phones and/or the computer server at his Trump Tower offices in New York. The more that comes to light about the ability of the White House to wire-tap anyone’s phones and e-mail, the more believable the possibility becomes that Barack Obama engineered eavesdropping on Trump’s communications while he was a candidate for the presidency.
The motive for such eavesdropping is clear: Obama’s desire to get Hillary Clinton elected in order for her to protect his presidential legacy. The methods Obama’s functionaries used to accomplish this are also now painfully obvious:
In June 2016, the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. But the request was denied. Undaunted, Obama’s people in October submitted another request to monitor Trump’s communications. But this time the request was focused only on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. FISA approved this request and Trump’s computers were tapped. No evidence was ever found that implicated Trump in any collusion with Russian banks or in any way with Russian leaders to help him win the election.
But strangely--and highly illegally in terms of what FISA courts will allow--the wiretaps on Trump’s offices continued. This violation of the FISA Act is a felony and, since the “buck stops at the Oval Office,” the “felon-in-chief” was Barack Obama. But the Obama people soon found a way around the need to go through FISA to engage in wire-tapping. They decided to use the surveillance techniques of the federal intelligence services. As reported in the New York Times, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies.” This sharing could be done before any privacy protection would be provided for this information by the FISA courts. In was then possible, at the request of the White House, for any of these intelligence agencies—the FBI, the CIA, etc.--to leak to the media information received from the NSA.
Proof that Obama’s people continued wire-tapping Trump through NSA activities comes from the leaks that led to the termination of Lt. General Flynn as National Security Advisor and that forced Attorney General Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into possible Russian influence on Trump’s election victory.
Conservative commentator, Mark Levin, wrote about these wire-tapping events: “The Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.” This represents the ethics and activities of a “police state.”
Fanning the flames of civil unrest. WorldNetDaily’s on-going “Whistleblower” series offers these comments about the frightening events all pointing toward America’s Civil War II: “Enraged at losing the election, the left has launched an all-out effort to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency…Pop singer Madonna boasts to millions she has ‘thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House’…A Black Lives Matter activist with a bullhorn exhorts protesters to ‘start killing people’ and ‘start killing the White House.’…Hillary Clinton's VP running mate, Tim Kaine, encourages anti-Trumpers to ‘fight in the streets’… Columnist Dennis Prager comments: ‘There will be unity [in America] only when the left vanquishes the right or the right vanquishes the left’… Columnist Walter E. Williams concludes that "If we were to examine criminality in America … it would be dominated by people who would be described as liberals’…Trump supporters have been warned ‘It’s time for self-defense…the left now feels violence against the right is both effective and morally justified.’"
How do we stop these incitements to violence from driving Americans to reach for each other’s throat? How do we put a lid on this terrible war mongering? Forbearance is essential. We must restrain our urges to get even…”to fight fire with fire”…to use violence to end violence. We must prove that we’re better than the agitators and the anarchists by pointing to their lawlessness…by turning a bright light on their derangement that would sacrifice American lives and tear our republic in two just to do away with Donald Trump.
Leftist violence should be exposed…singled out for public scorn…and then suppressed by pressure put on law enforcement authorities to do their job of maintaining the nation’s “peace and tranquility.” We must never take the law into our own hands. To do so invites disaster for the nation. What we should be doing most of all is praying that God will intercede in some way to bring unity to America once again. Please pray hard for your country.
The medical community is unable to reach consensus on what to do with America's health insurance situation.
The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.
The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter."
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.
Homeschooling: Restoring Parents’ Right to Raise Their Children as God Intended
by Lloyd Marcus • March 20, 2017 •
I am a black Tea Party guy — speaker, singer, activist, and prolific writer. I became exposed to and educated about home-schooled kids while traveling the country on fourteen Tea Party national bus tours. Home-schooled kids are strikingly smarter, better educated, calmer, and better behaved. I also noticed that every home-schooled kid I spoke with looked me in the eye. They seemed happy with a subtle confidence.
Years ago, I spoke to a class of black students at a Baltimore middle school. I asked each student to state their name. Stunningly, I had to ask several students to repeat their name numerous times before I understood what they were saying. They mumbled. I thought, why would their teacher allow such lazy speech? It is the bigotry of low expectations.
Most parents do not realize that Leftists are at war with traditional America. For decades, they have used public education to brainwash your kids, transforming them into stealth operatives against the principles and values of their parents. Remember when Michelle Obama encouraged students to help the federal government by monitoring family conversations for comments that leftists deem racially insensitive? A leftist-produced anti-gun ad encouraged students to break laws by stealing parents’ guns and handing them over to their teachers; making your kids stealth operatives for the left’s agenda.
Teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic became minor goals a long time ago. The number one priority of public education is producing good liberals. Leftists dominating public education have given us students who hate their country; white kids taught to feel guilty; black kids taught to feel justified in resenting whites. They’re taught that same-sex marriage is normal and that opposing it is the same as racial bigotry. They’re taught that having babies harms the planet and that recycling is saintly. Our kids are also taught that their parents owning guns contributes to gun violence and opposing illegal immigration is racist.
Independent critical thinking has also been removed from public education K through college. Teachers and professors demand total brain-dead submission to their leftist point-of-view. Free-thinking students are demeaned and even physically assaulted by fellow students.
A white friend of mine said her son came home from middle school in tears. He was filled with guilt, taught that his evil white ancestors were extremely mean to native Americans, blacks, and women. Today, that white kid is a 20-something-year-old America-hating communist. He believes white males are the greatest source of evil in the world.
My millennial relative planned to visit South Dakota. I suggested she visit Mount Rushmore. She replied venomously, “I wouldn’t cross the street to visit those guys!” Thank you, public education’s distorted teaching of U.S. history.
For decades, leftists have used public education and the federal government to confiscate your kids and indoctrinate them to embrace their religion of liberalism while banning the God of Christianity from schools. Speaking of religion, why are public schools teaching the virtues of Islam?
Incredibly, school boards have usurped authority to teach your child to celebrate and even experiment with homosexuality starting in kindergarten. Parents are forbidden to opt out their child. Could anyone have imagined a day in America when teachers and government bureaucrats would mandate that your child be taught the government’s views regarding sex? My late mom would be in the principal’s office in a flash, “Are you crazy? How dare you!”
The Bible instructs parents, “Train up a child in the way it should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Leftists say screw the Bible and parents, we demand your kids!
In the Bible, when the angels came to visit Lot, Sodomites demanded that Lot turnover the angels that they might have their way with them.
Leftist educators, using the iron fist of government, demand that parents turn over their kids that they might have their way with them. This is why leftists are hellbent on criminalizing home-schooling. Remarkably, in America, parents have been arrested for home schooling.
Trump’s religious freedom order is a step in the right direction, returning stewardship of children hearts and minds to their parents as God intended.

Pissed off Housewife
Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor. Ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?
This one surely does!
This is very good PLEASE read..
This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the U.SA., U.K. and Australia .
THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH
Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady...
"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not, started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?
Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?
Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
Do you think I care about four U. S. Marines urinating on some dead Taliban insurgents?
And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a nation they are fighting against in a brutal Insurgency.
I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief
of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .
I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head, while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called insurgents in Afghanistan , come out and fight like men, instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in Mosques and behind women and children.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana, care about the innocent children within range of their suicide Bombs.
I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of Speech on stories, is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home, to hear about them when something happens.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:
I don't care. Shoot him again.
When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:
I don't care.
And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.'
Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it.
I don't care!!
If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail Friends.. Sooner or later, it'll get to
the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!
If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't
complain when more atrocities committed by radical
Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering, if during their life on earth, they made a difference in
the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.
I have another quote that I would like to share AND...I hope you forward All this.
One last thought for the day:
Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The British Soldier.
3. The Canadian Soldier.
4. The US Soldier, and
5. The Australian Soldier
One died for your soul, the other four, for you and your children's Freedom.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET!
AMEN! GOD BLESS CANADA AND AMERICA

The Best Thing I Have Ever Read on 401Ks: Why Your 401K Is A Scam
Why Your 401K Is A Scam
By James Altucher
I hate writing about finance. The most violent, ugly people in the world work in the traditional finance industry.
I write something and instead of responding with a well-reasoned argument, they write things like "James Altucher is a wacko" or "James Altucher is a scumbag".
I've written for or appeared on the Wall St Journal, the Financial Times, CNBC, Fox Business, ABC, and many other finance sites. I've run hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, I've day traded, i've run a VC fund.
I see what happens inside the system. It's ugly. And they don't like you.
Almost 100% of financial journalism is BS, written by people who don't know anything about finance.
Almost everyone writing in the finance world has an agenda.
For instance, the last time I wrote about why a house is a bad thing to buy, someone wrote an article, "James must be an idiot."
I looked him up. He was a VP at the "National Association of Realtors" or some organization like that.
And when I wrote that kids shouldn't pay $200,000 on an education, another group wrote an article saying I was completely wrong and gave "proof" (they made every statistics mistake possible).
The authors: a research team at Georgetown University.
And when I recently wrote that 401k plans (retirement plans set up by corporations for their employees) were a scam, MANY people wrote very nice emails to me saying I verified their own private concerns.
But then a surprising thing happened. A lot of people, many I considered friends in the finance industry, wrote again that I was totally off the deep end this time.
They never disclosed that their businesses depend on investing 401k funds or somehow obtain fees because of 401k plans.
So maybe every Friday I'm going to write a little about finance if you think this is a good idea.
I stopped writing about it over five years ago because A) finance is boring and B) it has nothing to do with increasing someone's power over their own lives (in most cases).
People want more out of life than knowing what direction Apple stock is going. They want to fulfill their dreams and their passions, not just survive in the drudgery of a cubicle.
I have no agenda. I am not pushing any 401k product, or house, or fund, or anything.
But I just want to light up the facts about things people are lying to you about. Then you can decide.
Next Friday, if I continue doing this, I'm going to write about why and when you should stop paying back your credit card debt.
But I still feel an itch to address 401ks.
Listen: they are scams. This is another trillion dollar industry that has a lot of money at stake if people stop believing in the mythology bolted to the scam.
Let's go over the pros and then the cons:
The PROS of a 401k
You put money away before it is taxed. This has the benefit of encouraging you to save starting at a young age.
Often your employer will match what you put in your 401k. So it's "free money" (ask yourself: why is this the only example of free money in the entire world?).
When you are 59.5 years old you are allowed (like a parent allows a child) to take money out. It's taxed then but now you've benefited from the 7% per year that, by law (kidding) the stock market goes up.
I can't really think of any other pros. If you can think of some, please put in comments and I will try to address.
CONS of 401Ks
Let's look at it conceptually for a second and then I will look at the cons.
You are paid money by an employer. You have that money in your hands for five seconds, and then it is whisked away into this account and you can't look at it again for another 20-35 years unless you want to pay a massive penalty.
Will you be alive in 30 years? Hopefully! Else you will never see that money again.
Ok, that's my first problem with 401k. I like to have total control over money that is called mine.
Ok, let's look at the cons:
1) You can't predict your tax rate 30 years from now.
This completely destroys the whole "tax-deferred" argument.
Let's say you put money in your 401k at the age of 29. You are making much less money than you probably will be at the age of 59.
So your tax rate is less than your tax rate at 59, forgetting completely that taxes might be raised also (we just don't know) between now and then.
So we don't really know if you are saving money on taxes or not. You are simply having your money taken from you for 30 years.
Also, when you take money out of your 401k, you are taking out more than you put in (chances are, because your expenses are higher). So your tax rate will almost certainly be higher. Again, ruining the entire point of putting in pre-tax income.
2) The Employer Match
Do you think companies really pay you free money?
Companies that don't have an employer-match pay higher salaries. The Center for Retirement Research did a study based on tax data and showed that for every dollar an employer (on average) contributes to a 401k match, they pay 99 cents less in salary.
Also employers don't give you all the money at once. They spread it out over 4-6 years (six years is the regulated max or they would spread it out longer is my guess).
If you leave before the six years, you often don't get the match. So employers actually save money in the long run by installing a 401k plan.
How many employees stay at their jobs for six years? Not that many. The average is 4.6 years according to the Bureau of Labor Statistic.
Goodbye employer match.
People don't manage 401k plans for free. There is a cost. Then there is a cost in the mutual funds they put their money in.
Then there is revenue-sharing between employers and 401k plan managers. Is this legal? Yes. It might not always be but it is now and it is how employers make some of the money back on matching what you put in.
Is this transparent? Of course.
Does the average person look at all the fine print detailing fees? Of course not. I don't. (I have a 20 year old 401k account).
Then there is the fine print on each mutual fund the 401k manager has allocated the money to. Do I look at that fine print? No.
Many mutual funds charge extra marketing fees. Do yours? I have no idea. Most people don't. Which is how they get away with it on a trillion dollars.
Which is part of the reasons 86% (!) of mutual fund managers underperform the market.
Now, in many cases you can say, "I want to put in a low-fee exchange traded fund" but a) will you do that? and b) they still have some fees.
4) Assumption on market returns.
The market has returned somewhere between 7-10% per year depending on what time period you look at, what index, etc.
The average investor has returned 1.8% per year over the past 40 years. The psychology of investing is very difficult. In 2009, many investors pulled out of the market, right before a 100% upward move.
And when I say, "many investors", I'm not talking about you - I'm talking about the best mutual fund managers in the business.
5) More on taxes.
Yes, you save tiny amounts on taxes when you are young. But this is also the period when you have the biggest tax write-offs relative to your income (dependents, business expenses, etc).
So you don't really need the extra minor savings on taxes. Trust me, you will be fully taxed at the highest rate when you pull money out 30 years from now.
So why not use that "extra" money to invest in yourself right now. Invest in skills that can benefit you or experiences that you can enjoy and make you happier.
401k plans have been around for decades. And yet the average retiree does not have enough savings for retirement.
So the evidence is fully in. 401k plans did not help.
So how does one save?
The average multi-millionaire, according to tax data, has at least 7 different sources of income.
You can keep your job. But think about how to make money on side jobs. It doesn't have to be tomorrow. Just think about it and start coming up with ideas.
Or take a job where you financial success is more in tune with the financial success of the company.
With industry being outsourced and knowledge being outsourced, the best investment is in yourself.
This might mean take courses that you can later monetize (photography, wordpress development, copywriting, freelance writing, etc).
Or it might mean studying investments. The best investors are usually the top hedge fund managers. Study their investments. Copy what they do (but don't invest in them. Ugh!).
Anyway, I don't like writing about finance. But I can assure you I have no agenda on 401k plans.
I get emails every day from people who are scared and frustrated.
They have reached their retirement page and everyone up until now has lied to them about the benefits of 401ks. So they are worried about how they will survive.
My agenda is to try and help. A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine says I was a waste of flesh because I was against 401ks. Guess what he does for a living? He manages 401k plans!
Perhaps the main point of this article is that one way to choose yourself is to look at the agendas of people selling you something.
It's ok for them to make money. I don't blame these people. Maybe some of them are good. But get all the facts so YOU can choose instead of THEM.
Question ALWAYS the trillion dollar industries that are paying millions to fool you (finance industry, housing industry, college industry, etc).

Time to put political parties out of YOUR MISERY
Today, nearly everyone laments the fact that everything involving government in America is politicized. Not only does this mean that political parties want to control the outcome of every issue in which government responds to our needs, rights and privileges, but that politicians invariable deal with these issues in terms of enhancing their power at the expense of our wellbeing.
Health care in our nation has been politicized. So has our immigration law as it impacts national security. We are constantly being taxed more to provide benefits for illegal aliens to support the desire of political parties to win them over as future voters.
We’re being asked to guaranty strange new rights, such as transgender bathrooms, to those who want to use these facilities not according to their birth gender but rather to reflect their “right” to consider themselves as any gender they want any time they want.
We’re being directed by government at all levels to hide or remove any expression of belief in God from public places, primarily at the insistence of another voter block, atheists, who demand that God be stricken from American life. And inconceivably, at the same time we’re being driven to eliminate God from our nation, we’re being pressured by Muslims to make room for the observance of their religion and culture in institutions from coast to coast. Our conflicting government-driven coercion--to either accept or reject one religion or another--has now been made more outrageous by giving Devil worshippers the right to be represented in our schools.
This is all the result of political pressure placed on us so as not to offend anyone who could help one party or the other win an election. This is totally unacceptable, particularly since the U.S. Constitution makes no mention of political parties and therefore gives them no power whatsoever to control the business of government.
Not only are political parties at each other’s throat, but so are factions within political parties—as can be seen in the battle between conservative Republicans and establishment Republicans over the subject of health-care reform. Thanks to political parties and the factions within them, nothing gets done in Washington, or it gets done badly.
Political parties have also decided that, it is in their best interest, in order to appeal to the broadest base of potential voters, and therefore it is their right to ignore established law. We see this all across the nation where politicians in cities and entire states violate our federal immigration law by permitting what is called a “sanctuary” to exist, where illegal aliens can hide and use as a safe base to commit crime and endanger lives.
Partisan politics has ground government to a halt at all levels. Political parties have reached a new lethality. Government gridlock is the power play being used by congressional adversaries. There is virtually no issue--even one as basic as national security--on which Democrats and Republicans will negotiate in good faith, no less come to a reasonable agreement. The political battle for control of Congress is all consuming, leaving no concern at all for the best interests and urgent needs of the public.
America is being held for ransom by the political parties that control the elected officials “we the people” put in office. It’s painfully clear they have absolutely no allegiance to us. Are we too stupid to understand that, the moment we elect people to office, they pass out of our influence and into the hands of corrupt political leaders? Few among those we elect have the guts to break away from their party controllers…to vote their own conscience…to follow their own inclinations…to faithfully represent their constituents…to do what they truly believe is right for America.
If we, the American people, don’t do everything in our power to defund political parties, and disband them by refusing to accept their agendas, America will not survive for more than another decade. We need only to close our wallets, put down our checkbooks, and refuse to join and support organizations that put political power first and the needs of the people last.
If this has you worried…if you believe you must learn more about how to stop political parties from putting America on its deathbed, then you must read “Citizens Against Political Parties” (CAPP).

The most shocking revelation from the CIA spying scandal
March 8, 2017
It happened again– another spying scandal in the Land of the Free.
Yesterday Wikileaks released 8,761 CIA documents detailing the agency’s hacking of smart phones, routers, computers, and even televisions.
These files reveal that the CIA can and has hacked devices that were supposedly secure– iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
The documents further reveal that the CIA is deliberately infecting personal computers with spyware, including Windows, Mac OS/X, Solaris, Linux, and other operating systems.
They’re also hacking WiFi routers to deploy software that monitors Internet activity, and have even figured out how to bypass anti-virus software so that their spyware cannot be detected.
They’ve also managed to make the rest of the world believe that Russian hackers, not the CIA, are behind all this malware and spyware.
It’s like a restatement of that old Mission: Impossible line– “Should any of your IM force be caught or killed… we’ll blame Russia.”
The CIA is pretty shameless about its activities, nicknaming its various hacking programs “Assassin”, “Medusa”, and “Brutal Kangaroo”.
One of the deepest revelations is that the agency is able to hack Internet-connected televisions, including Samsung smart TVs, through a program called “Weeping Angel”.
Basically the CIA can turn your TV into a listening device, recording conversations in the room and transmitting the audio to a CIA server.
Even if you think the TV is off, it’s not.
CIA hackers have been able to spoof the on/off display and set the television to a “false off” mode.
Bottom line, no device that’s connected to the outside world is truly safe.
And future Wikileaks publications may show that the intelligence community is hacking home automation devices, Internet-connected automobiles (including driverless vehicles), and artificial intelligence like Amazon’s Alexa.
It’s hard to be shocked at this point that the government is spying on its own allies and citizens.
This is just the latest in a pattern of brazen surveillance and flagrant Constitutional violations on the part of the US intelligence community.
But that’s precisely what I find MOST concerning– the LACK of concern over these new CIA documents.
People have such a low expectation of their government now, and have become so accustomed to the government routinely violating their civil liberties, that there’s hardly any public outrage anymore about these spying scandals.
More importantly, the lack of concern is indicative of what freedom means in the Land of the Free today.
Here’s a great example–
Young people are traditionally the most politically charged activists in the country.
But where are the protests across university campuses demanding freedom and privacy?
It’s not happening.
That’s because university students are too busy protesting against ideas they don’t want to hear about.
At Middlebury College last week, a small liberal arts school in Vermont, a small mob of student protestors physically assaulted a conservative speaker because his ideas offended them.
They couldn’t simply skip the lecture and allow interested students to attend.
No, they had to engage in violent censorship, oppressing any idea that doesn’t conform to their narrow agenda.
The only thing these cry bullies are interested in hearing is apologetic white men groveling over their privilege.
This is the new reality in the Land of the Free: freedom has deteriorated into some gender studies professor’s socialist fantasy.
Constitutionally guaranteed liberties have become irrelevant.
Forget about “free speech”.
Any intellectual dissent from the intolerant Social Justice view is now considered “hate speech”.
And the Fourth Amendment, which establishes “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” has become a distant memory.
As a child who grew up in the 80s during the height of the Cold War, I imagine there would have been widespread disgust if a similar scandal had been exposed.
Spying on citizens and allies? That’s what the Soviet Union did.
But today, everything else is more important.
Transgender bathrooms. Silencing hate speech. Forcing elementary school children to feel guilty about their white privilege. Political correctness in extremis. #everyone-else-but-white-people’s-lives-matter.
This is what dominates the social conversation now in the Land of the Free.
Privacy is no longer a Western value.
After all, people narcissistically upload their entire lives to social media (as if anyone cares what they’re having for dinner) so that Mark Zuckerberg can auction off our details to the highest bidder.
And it is precisely this decline that I find most disturbing.
Some people hold the idiotic belief that, “If I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to fear.”
This is dangerous logic, for so many reasons.
Even the use of the word ‘hide’ is ridiculous… as if the fact that I don’t upload photos of my nether regions to Instagram means that I’m “hiding” something.
We all keep things private. It’s why we wear clothing, don’t discuss our personal finances in polite company, and worry when our social security number is stolen.
But more importantly, if it doesn’t matter that the CIA is monitoring people’s most intimate moments, then does anything matter?
They keep moving the line, probing deeper and deeper into our lives and enveloping the nation inside an Orwellian surveillance state.
And it doesn’t stop… because we’re in the midst of a complete breakdown of western values.
“THE DEVIL!” – Top Democrats TURN Against Obama’s Shadow Government
Finally, some commonsense is leaking into American politics, with infighting, which is now apparently going on in the Democrat party.
According to a new report on WND.com, Stephen Handwerk, the Louisiana Democrat Party Executive Director, wrote an email in response to Obama’s shadow government, stating, “This is some GRADE A Bulls-t right here.”
He then stated something I would think even the dumbest of Democrats should realize right now, “It also to me seems TONE DEAF – we have lost over 1,000 seats in the past 8 years … all because of this crap.”
Well, it is actually not crap, Obama’s work with Organizing for Action,and the shadow government many suspect it to be apart of, is treason!
Never before have we seen such a blatant attempt at a political coup by an outgoing administration’s party. The people of this country have been trying to tell Dems it is time to go in a different direction, but they are not listening, not even to their own voters.
As Handwerk points out, they have lost 1,000 seats, since Obama’s first Inauguration, yet they play to the protesters, most of whom don’t even vote! They just like to burn things up and commit crimes, which they know they will not be punished for.
Obama’s Organizing for Action was put together for one purpose, treason, and far too many older Dems are buying into the idea that this is a great idea.
In all, there are an estimated 250 offices with over 30,000 active “soldiers” and up to as many as 50,000 more expected to complete training. They have no other purpose than to disrupt our government.
To see how far this divide goes within their party, consider how many senators up for reelection wanted Obama to appear with them on the trail. According to WND, just one person wanted him on the trail. So think about that. The most powerful campaign tool someone can have is a sitting president, and they didn’t want any part of him.
A senate candidate from Kentucky outright blasted the president. Alison Lundergran Grimes took out an ad to tell everyone she was against her own president, declaring, “I’m not Barack Obama. I disagree with him on guns, coal, and the EPA.”
We have the old school Democrats squaring off with the Democrats who actually have some scruples, and it is not pretty.
I said just a few weeks ago that the Democrat party better listen to the wake-up call America gave it soon or the party will be dead. This infighting is just a small sign of what we are going to see in the near future.
Most Americans, except for the extreme left, will not tolerate this kind of nonsense. Lest they forget, Trump was elected because the people of this country were fed up. Nothing was getting done in Washington, except for people’s pockets getting fatter.
Now, with this treasonous plot being carried out in the wide open, the Democrats are sending even more people to Trump’s camp. If they don’t wise up, conservatives will have every seat available and the Democrat party will be dead forever, which is fine by me!
