Save America from Speaker Ryan & Congress

June 7, 2016

pr3

Today, Speaker Paul Ryan will start detailing policy prescriptions that are part of HIS vision that he says will show Americans what the party is for, rather than focusing on what it’s against.

Why am I skeptical about Paul Ryan doing anything except criticizing Donald Trump for not being like Paul Ryan and using his Power of the Purse to give Obama, Reid & Pelosi everything they could possible want?

Ryan and his Lawyer Lobbyist wife who attended Wellesley College like Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Diane Sawyer and Cokie Roberts have amassed a fortune in the area of ten million dollars. That’s quite a feat but what has Ryan done for America?

Ryan has been sucking on the sweet flowing breast of the government for 17 years as a Congressman and has held the most powerful positions in that body including Speaker, Chairman of Ways and Means and Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

When Ryan swore to uphold and defend the Constitution in 1999, the National Debt stood at $5.6 trillion. A year after Ryan became Budget Chairman; the National Debt soared above $15 trillion for the first time in History. It seems Ryan and his Cartel could not find ANYTHING to cut except the United States Armed Forces and Veteran’s Benefits?

The way Congress allowed our Armed Forces to become provocatively weak represents treason in my mind!

I have NEVER heard one word of criticism flow from Ryan’s lips about President Obama or Obama’s enablers, the United States Congress.

I did hear Speaker Ryan criticize the presumptive Republican Nominee for President many times including most recently for standing up to the activist La Raza anti-Trump U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel. It is ironic that a move is underway to oust another California Judge, the one who sparked outrage after he sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer to just six months in jail for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside a campus frat party.

The sentence Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky imposed on Brock Turner, 20, has been blasted by the victim and called a “slap on the wrist” by the San Jose Mercury News.

Of course, that is a criminal matter and Curiel is making hay with the civil suit Trump refuses to settle out of Court. The wealthy and huge companies are often sued because they have deep pockets and are inclined to settle rather than be drug through the mud in a public trial. I remember when everybody was suing aircraft manufacturers because they readily settled for $100,000 when a pilot simply ran out of gas and crashed. The result of not fighting such suits resulted in more and more litigation with the end result of almost destroying general aviation. An aircraft I bought for $11,000 in 1970 would cost over $350,000 today.

Donald Trump knows that if he settles frivolous lawsuits, it will simply result in more and more frivolous lawsuits. The usual suspects: Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post and New York Times never pass up an opportunity to pummel The Donald for standing up for his rights. Most Americans lack the chutzpah to take on a crooked judge. The very idea that a judge could be crooked seems farfetched to most Americans.

We’d like to think our justices and judges are defined by respect, duty and impartiality. But behind that iconic black robe isn’t always a tireless drive to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States. Some of the most revered judges are worse than the criminals they should be sentencing. I will mention a couple corrupt judges who will make you question your faith in the legal system but there are so many more!

May I remind you about Judge Mark Ciavarella’s Kids For Cash Scheme? Nicknamed “Mr. Zero Tolerance”, Ciavarella was a big supporter of harsh sentences…for kids. Ciavarella sent thousand of children to a local detention center during his tenure in Luzerne County, PA. Think the kids deserved it? Listen to this: Ciavarella sent an 11-year-old to juvenile detention for almost two years after the kid took his mom’s car for a ride down the block. He also sent a 15-year-old to the same detention facility for mocking her assistant principal on social media and gave a 17-year-old first offender five months for helping steal a DVD. The judge got kickbacks from the facility where he sent those kids. No wonder the hearings often lasted only two minutes, Ciavarella got up to a million dollars for putting hundreds of innocent children behind bars. The courts wised up to his plans, and eventually sentenced Mr. Zero Tolerance to 27 years in prison. Following his sentencing, nearly 4,000 of Ciavarella’s previous convictions were overturned. Too little, too late if you ask Gene McVay!

Then there is Judge Thomas J. Maloney from the infamous Cook County. Maloney and numerous fellow Cook County judges were the focus of an investigation named Operation Greylord. The operation was a joint investigation by the FBI, IRS, USPS and the Illinois State Police to track down corrupt judges. Don’t worry, NOBODY is about to do anything these days about corrupt judges!

Judge Maloney was working his magic in high-profile murder cases. In exchange for rigging murder cases Maloney got over $100,000 in bribes. Maloney let mafia members, murderers and gangsters walk free, as long as he got his “fee.” To this day Maloney is listed as “one of the worst judges in history.” He was convicted of racketeering extortion and obstructing justice.

I could go on and on but YOU have Google. Do I have to spoon feed everybody?

What Ryan is doing today is paving the way to combat President Trump and maintain the status quo in Congress that brought America to the brink of total collapse. Yes, Republican Leaders love to blame President Obama for America’s sorry state of affairs and too many Americans fall for Ryan’s pompous blather. Do you remember that the Democrats did not need any Republicans to pass the Anything But Affordable Care Act? However, the Republicans could have stopped Obamacare in its tracks, especially when Obamacare resulted in the Democrats losing both the Senate and House. If Ryan and Boehner were half as manly as Nancy Pelosi, they would have used the power of the purse like a brick wall to stop Obama.

So here we stand, We the People and Donald Trump against the world and against Ryan, Romney, the Bushes and 100% of the crooked media. It shouldn’t be much of a challenge!

Trump: AMERICA HEADING FOR MASSIVE RECESSION

April 5, 2016

lp

★★Why would Donald Trump say America is heading for a massive recession? The politicians certainly won’t tell you such a thing and neither will the smiley talking heads at CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS & Fox News!

 
We are in big trouble even if we ignore our massive National Debt and Unfunded Obligations that come to over $225 trillion or about a million dollars for every adult in America.

ND
A record 94,610,000 workers are not in the American labor force and the labor force participation rate is at its lowest point in 38 years! Just 62 percent of the U.S. population has a job or is actively seeking one. Of the 245 million documented adults in the US, 123 million don’t have full time jobs. Of the Americans who have jobs, many are underemployed as our good jobs seem to prefer the climate in Mexico, Vietnam, China and Sweden. The Democrats have a solution for our climate ~ MORE TAXES!

 
Our total government spending exceeds $6 trillion which is more than our gross domestic product. In other words, our politicians continue to spend more than we earn. Just government spending on welfare exceeds a trillion bucks as bleeding hearts insist on paying able bodied freeloaders not to work. LBJ and the Democrats declared war on poverty almost 50 years ago and pounded trillions down the rat hole. How’d that work out?

hs
We are blowing over a trillion bucks on education while our children pile up student loans and learn very little. When I attended school a long time ago, America was number one in the world, now we are 30th and dropping. Education should not be about money, it should be about learning! Just like most of our Defense spending has NOTHING to do with defense, most education spending is pure fluff! I submit, students don’t learn better in marble buildings than they do in metal buildings.

fm
During this period of government bailouts and wild money printing, the Trickle Down Economy should be in its glory days but 63% of Americans say that if they had a $500 unexpected expense, they would have to sell something or borrow money to pay it. The median family income has dropped about $5,000 in recent years. Our government punishes our legitimate businesses with the world’s highest taxes, the world’s most burdensome regulations and forced expenses like the world’s highest minimum wage, forced training and forced unionization. The result is as predictable as the sunrise. companies either go bankrupt or move overseas. On top of all this, our government has opened the flood gates to the world’s poor, uneducated, unhealthy huddled masses yearning to jump on the welfare gravy train. It’s called Immigration Reform.

rmr
Don’t worry; all the politicians have been promising to help the middle class for several years!

can4
Maybe the Stock Market will never crash AGAIN and the House of Cards will stand forever? Maybe ISIS and Iran won’t knock out our power grid or our crumbling infrastructure?

Maybe Donald Trump is wrong but you know in your heart he’s right.

AN ALERT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CITIZENRY

April 26, 2015

 

GenWash

The Greatest Generals and Admirals are gone forever. First and foremost, George Washington who led amidst his men enduring unpleasantness and uncomfortable conditions while trying to hold his ill equipped and untrained force together. Public Schools don’t teach students much about Washington today but he took on the greatest empire in the world and won OUR FREEDOM. The sun never set on the British Empire as Britannia ruled the world. John Pershing who was thrust into the War to End all Wars after perusing Poncho Villa on the Mexican Border and Dwight Eisenhower who walked a tight rope to keep all our allies focused and working together to defeat the Axis Powers of Nazi Germany, Japan and Italy.

Although General Washington only wore three stars during his lifetime, by act of Congress he was promoted to the rank of General of the Armies and nobody can ever outrank our founding father. Washington gave us this sage advice, “To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.”

The only officer promoted to the rank of General of the Armies while living was General “Black Jack” Pershing. He chose to wear four gold stars while later Generals with the lower rank of General of the Army wore five star insignias. I wonder if these officers and others like Omar Bradley could even make Major in our military today.

After the ongoing purge of our best officers and senior enlisted personnel by the Obama Administration, we are left with a lot of air heads who blindly follow the party line. The Vice Commander of Air Combat Command who told airmen that speaking to Congress about plans to retire the A-10 Thunderbolt amounts to treason is a prime example. He stepped down from his position and had his hand slapped but that’s about as bad as it gets these days. Especially if one is only echoing the sentiments of his bosses, in this case reaching all the way to the Oval Office.

What shocks me most is the fact that an Inspector General actually substantiated this General’s abominable abuse of power! The government IG system is little more than a huge fraud. IG’s work for the military commanders or Agency Directors, THEY ARE NOT INDEPENDENT! It is my belief that if there was ever a criminal investigation of the IG system a lot of people would end up in prison. I had a front row seat watching several so called IG Investigations. One such investigation involved one of my men who was obviously guilty. The female IG concluded her investigation and came into my office to brief me on her findings. She told me she could not substantiate the allegations and then said, “That’s what you wanted to hear isn’t it?” I told her I wanted to hear the truth. Although I have seen her since, she has never looked me in the eye or spoken to me again. I have seen so many cover-ups and lost respect for so many military leaders, that I have become the mother of all cynics.

There can only be one reason the Air Force is aggressively moth balling the A-10. I believe America is systematically being provocatively weakened and the one weapon the terrorists fear most is the A-10.

A10Blog

I never flew the A-10, I was privileged to fly the glamorous supersonic air supremacy fighters, the F-100, F-101, F-4 and F-16. I never had a desire to fly the subsonic Thunderbolt II affectionately called the Warthog. I have always appreciated the importance of the A-10 to ground forces in the Close Air Support mission. I believe the Air Force considered giving the A-10 to the Army at one point but realized the Army already had more aircraft than the Air Force.

I can’t speak to the President’s motives but I have observed his actions beginning with the release of the Terrorist leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in 2009 and systematically releasing many other Terrorist Generals including trading five for a U.S. Army Combat Deserter. Our military has been weakened beyond imagination and rules of engagement demanded by the administration favor the enemy.

Money is not the measure of military capability just as it has no bearing on education. Education is about learning and the mission of the Defense Department is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country. Waste within these government empires is monumental but it is NEVER the waste that is cut!

I have never understood these military Turf Battles. At one point the Department of Defense tried to save money by developing standard items to be used by all services. They started with a belt buckle. The services could not agree. Then an Air Force Chief of Staff decided to test a new uniform with rank insignia consistent with virtually all our allies. That Chief of Staff also did something that changed the face of Airpower from an unwieldy hodgepodge of forces to a sensible structure. While I respected and admired the Chief, most ridiculed him.

During the Vietnam War commanders had to deal with other commanders to complete their missions. The Strategic Air Command blocked all the airspace above 28,000 feet and popped in and out occasionally to drop bombs. Fighter jets had different commanders as did rescue, reconnaissance, tankers and tactical airlift. I was one of a handful of senior officers who worked on what was termed the “objective wing.” After I rent my clothes and gnashed my teeth for a few months, our modern structure immerged, the Provisional or Expeditionary Wing. Everybody in that wing works for One Commander. Even the mighty Strategic Air Command became part of a single command with the fighters and tankers. Before I retired, the Air Force allowed me to command the Cope Thunder Provisional Wing equipped with six billion dollars worth of hardware from the U.S. Air Force, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserves, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy and Canadian Air Force. I had F-16, F-15, F-18, F-15E, F-14 and CF-18 fighter aircraft, F4 “Wild Weasel” Suppression of Enemy Air Defense aircraft, E-3B AWACS airborne early warning and control aircraft, KC-10 Tankers and C-130 Tactical Airlift. Search and rescue was provided by the U.S. Army and I did lose an F-15 that crashed in the Alaskan wilderness without injury.

Most of the air combat during the Gulf War was conducted by the 14th and 15th Provisional Air Divisions. In short order they created the highway of death leading from Kuwait and had belligerents trying to surrender to TV cameramen and drones. President George H.W. Bush stopped the attack short of Bagdad and essentially ended the last armed conflict of the 20th Century. The forces could have easily and quickly delivered the knockout blow to Iraq then and there.

I have tremendous confidence in the combat forces we have although they have too many distractions and too much social experimentation. Fighter pilots can no longer control their own cockpits and drone controllers can do nothing without a consensus from petrified military commanders. Hundreds of people are watching every drone flight on big screens from the Pentagon and White House to Intelligence Agencies and Field Units. Most drones are flown from the United States through optical cable under the Atlantic and then linked to a satellite over the Middle East. There is a two second delay between the time a control input is made and the time the drone responds. So far, takeoffs and landings are controlled just like model airplanes with a controller looking at the drone and relinquishing control when the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is airborne.

The time has already passed when cutting government fat should have been the top priority. Unfunded liabilities such as Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, Military and government Pensions, etc. now exceeds $700,000 for ever legal and illegal man, woman and child in America. The government tinkers with data to fool the public and intimidates companies that lower the U.S. Credit Rating. Practically everything you see is an illusion built on a house of cards. The stock market is propped up with bogus money printed 24/7 and backed by thin air. The Federal Reserve takes its share off the top but the Fed has NEVER been audited so who knows the whole truth? The few courageous people in Congress who try to get some control of spending are attacked like they are enemies of the state. The media and liberals think shutting down the non essential parts of government for a few days is the end of the world. Trust me, thoughtful, systematic reduction of our government by 50% is what is sorely needed! Before we had the United States Department of Education, the U.S. was FIRST in Education in the world, now we are 20th in math.

The Federal Government has FIVE Service Academies, West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force Academy, the Coast Guard Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy. Seriously, we cut combat units at the drop of a hat but no one will dare to even suggest consolidating some service academies. Very few will suggest the government cut one single SUV or luxury private jet used by government officials like they were their own personal toys. The federal government and even a few state governments tax meager military pensions and use them as a revenue stream to fund their insatiable appetite for more and more reckless spending.

IkeLastSpeech

Who warned us to beware of the military? That would be Supreme Allied Commander, Five Star General and former President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower. The year I graduated from Mountain Home High School, President Eisenhower gave his farewell address to the nation, his final public speech as President. It was delivered in a television broadcast on January 17, 1961. Perhaps best known for advocating that the nation guard against the potential influence of the military–industrial complex, a term he is credited with coining, the speech also expressed concerns about planning for the future and the dangers of massive spending, especially deficit spending. Here is part of that speech, heed it well:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.”

MoonLdg

Dwight Eisenhower passed away four months before Neil Armstrong, a former F-9F, F-100 and F-101 pilot, made man’s first footprint on the surface of the Moon. Americans are so bad at History that I fear we will never learn. Most people live in the moment without a thought about tomorrow. Many people who drive $70,000 SUVs have not saved one penny for retirement or a rainy day. In that respect, many people see nothing wrong with a government that lives like there is no tomorrow.

An alert and knowledgeable citizenry is just a big pipe dream.  I can only do what I can do.  I guess I do enough worrying for everybody?

Can America Afford All the Service Academies?

April 28, 2014

~~~~~~Bolton

A debate has emerged over whether U.S. military academies are worth the more than $400,000 per graduate that they cost taxpayers. Especially at a time when America’s Combat Capability has been eroded to a pre WWII level. Bruce Fleming, who has been a professor of English at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., for 25 years, contends that service academies represent a military Disneyland.

Fleming told a reporter that Navy and other service academies don’t really attract the best and brightest students, and they don’t really produce leaders. The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) and Officer Candidate School (OCS) do a better job of that, he said.

Having commanded scores of Academy graduates during my career, I must agree with Professor Fleming. Of the 20 top Officers who served under my command, I would only include one Academy Graduate. If I were to list the 20 worst Officers who served under my command the list would include mostly Academy Graduates.

Of the five Service Academies, West Point is clearly the best but do we really need the five taxpayer supported Academies? West Point, The Coast Guard Academy, The Merchant Marine Academy, The Naval Academy and The Air Force Academy? While Tactical Fighter Wings and Combat Brigades have been disappearing, life goes on impervious at the Academies. There is even taxpayer money for a Pagan Worship Area at The Air Force Academy.

The top Officer in the Military is the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Many have been Academy graduates but many great Chiefs have graduated from civilian colleges including North Carolina State University, Bradley University, City College of New York,
University of Maryland and Kansas State University.

General John Vessey served as the tenth Chairman of the Joint Chiefs from 1982 to 1985. When he retired at age 63, he was the longest serving active duty member in the Army. He began his 46-year military career in the Minnesota National Guard in 1939 when he was still 16. He was a First Sergeant with the 34th Division when it entered the Anzio beachhead in Italy in May 1944; there he received a battlefield commission as a second lieutenant, serving as a forward observer.

General Vessey also served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. He did not graduate from college until he was a Lieutenant Colonel at the age of 41. He had almost 30 years service before he was promoted to Colonel. As a Colonel, he was a student at the Army helicopter school at the age of 48. Nine years after being promoted to Colonel he was a Four Star General. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan appointed him as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was the last four star combat veteran of World War II on active service.

In retirement, he served President Reagan and his successors, Presidents George H. W. Bush and William J. Clinton, as a special emissary to Vietnam on the question of American service personnel missing from the Vietnam War. He was awarded the nation’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 1992. Here is a quote from General Vessey: “Our strategy is one of preventing war by making it self-evident to our enemies that they’re going to get their clocks cleaned if they start one.” General Vessey is now 91.

Thanks for indulging me, as a man who worked my way up through the ranks I believe that Officers with Enlisted experience make the best Officers. General Vessey is a leader who prevailed in spite of the system and without a college degree until long after he became a Field Grade Officer.

So do we really need all these Sacred Cow Academies or would our tax dollars be better spent on Combat Forces?

A long investigation into rape at the Naval Academy revealed some ugly truths about its culture. The 11 midshipmen who took the witness stand described a world of binge drinking, casual sex, social-media harassment and lying — you can do that at most any college. But for some academy alumni, it was a disturbing portrait of an institution that imposes strict rules on aspiring young officers whose educations are funded by U.S. taxpayers.

I’m not singling out one Academy, simply search the Internet for “Rape, Cheating, Service Academy” and you will have plenty to read. As for me, I don’t want one more red cent of my tax money going for Pagan Worship Areas or for supporting a culture of cheating and rape. I would not object to a single Joint Service Academy if it was run by an adult who would not tolerate a disorderly, subculture. I appreciate your comments.

Republicans Must Say “No”

March 6, 2014

~~~~~~~~5

Now even Republican leaders are calling the Republican Party the party of “NO.” Simply put, the leaders who control the GOP are ignorant of what they are up against. Many have been in Washington so long they have lost their grip on reality and common sense.

Breaking Information, Here is what the Democrats are up to: The Democrats operate not by the Constitution, the Bible or principles of Freedom and Democracy, they operate by rules established by Saul Alinsky. Ignore Alinsky at your own peril! Have you noticed that while society is trying to keep its head above water dealing with the deadly tentacles of Obamacare, Obama hits us with so called Immigration Reform, raising the minimum wage, distressing the Defense Department, shutting down coal mines, blocking the Keystone Pipeline, bombing Syria, starting Cold War II, endless debt and so forth? Our Republican leaders think we should busy ourselves with responding to these attacks on the American Way of Life. That we should be firefighters instead of working to prevent fires.

Obama worked for the organization founded by Alinsky and Hillary wrote her Senior Thesis about Saul Alinsky. Here is one of his rules: Change is brought about through relentless agitation and “trouble making” of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.

Continuing with Alinsky: Since both the middle and upper classes have none of the organizer’s enthusiasm for radical change, he must do his best to “stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.” He must “agitate to the point of conflict.” The organizer “dramatizes…injustices” and engages in “‘trouble making’ by stirring up” just those “angers, frustrations, and resentments” that will eventuate in the “disorganization of the old and organization of the new.” He is determined to give rise to as much “confusion” and “fear” as possible.

Do you think the mainstream media is ignorant of the goals and aspirations of the Democratic Party to evolve into a Marxist Classless Society that would accept a One World Government? They are not as stupid as they act, they support the Democratic agenda hook, line and sinker. The unions use the same tactics and have for many decades.

If I was Speaker of the House, Senate Minority Leader or Chairman of the Republican National Committee, here is what I would say, “The Republicans have been called the Party of No because we work hard to keep the country on track and avoid train wrecks. Today I announce that collectively we are saying a resounding No to the Saul Alinsky principles that represent the cornerstone of the divisiveness in America. We demand that the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party stop agitating and dividing America and begin enforcing the Constitution and the Laws of America. Never before have we had a President who jets around the country stirring up angers, frustrations and resentments. The President promised Change, here is what Saul Alinsky says about Change: “Change is brought about through relentless agitation and “trouble making” of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.” President Obama eats, sleeps and taught Saul Alinsky’s principles. Now he thinks he can continue to be a Community Organizer while occupying the White House. He thinks he can keep Republicans off balance by overwhelming Law Makers with one Socialist Marxist idea after another and then simply accuse us of saying, “No, no, no.”

Today I say “No” to unconstitutional warrantless wiretapping of Congressional Leaders and Law Abiding Citizens. I say “No” to picking and choosing which laws to enforce. I say “No” to using the IRS, EPA, DOJ, FLRA and other Departments to attack and overwhelm citizens and organizations. I say “Yes” to legal farm workers and all other foreign help who enter the United States legally with work Visas but I say “No” to all who cross our borders illegally and uninvited. I say “Yes” to immigrants who respect our laws, go through the immigration process and assimilate into the American Culture. I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of The United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. Every Legislator, member of the Executive Branch and Federal Judge took that same oath. Violating that oath is an impeachable offense. I plan to honor my oath and I urge others to do likewise. I pledge to put America and American Citizens first. America was built on self reliance, Christian principles, a strong work ethic, a strong national defense, capitalism, democracy, integrity and the willingness to give a leg up to those who are down on their luck. America was not founded on the principle of overburdening citizens and businesses until they are all down on their luck. Are you willing to put aside old bitterness and help restore America’s Greatness? I am.”

I am not so out of touch that I believe for a second that the three current occupants of the positions I mention would make a speech even remotely like the preceding. They fear criticism from the Liberal Media. Now that statements about the Ukraine made by Sarah Palin years ago have turned out to be true, the Liberal Media that made fun of her remains silent. If the Liberal Media is not criticizing Republicans, they’re not real Republicans. They love John McCain, Lindsey Graham and, well, you know the usual suspects. In the meantime I can dream of a Senate led by Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, a House with Trey Gowdy as Speaker and a National Republican Party led by Mark Levin.

Drastic Action Required to Save OUR Nation!

June 23, 2013

My 34 years of military and government service taught me about the IG system. It don’t work! The IRS IG did nothing about 15 years of illegal refunds to illegal aliens at the same address!

IG’s work for the agencies, departments, brigades, wings and instillations and typically try to keep the agency’s from being embarrassed about mismanagement, fraud, waste and abuse.

Every government worker and military member knows that reporting FW&A is the career ending kiss of death. The whistleblowers get investigated, hounded and discredited. They become the focus just like Snowden.

There is an investigative organization with an outstanding unblemished record, the United States Government Accountability Office or GAO. They call a shovel a “shovel” and know what “is” means. I absolutely trust GAO Audits.

The GAO operates under Congress and can’t be fired by a rogue agency chief or cabinet member.

Clearly OUR government has become a loose cannon. OUR Tax money is being wasted. OUR security has been compromised. Federal workers have become abusive. OUR intelligence agencies have become ineffective. OUR military has become weakened. OUR welfare system is a black hole. OUR country is beyond broke with National Debt and Unfunded Requirements amounting to over $500,000 per family. That’s right, it would take over half a million dollars per family to get the United States out of debt. Even drunken sailors stop spending when they’re broke.

Here is what I am asking for: The most comprehensive audit in the history of the world. It should be led by the GAO and augmented with investigators from each of the 50 states.

Up until now we have been giving aspirins to OUR critically ill patient when radical surgery was indicated. Drastic situations require drastic actions. Are you with me?
