Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Of course when Obama made the asinine statement he was speaking of himself as being the Messiah that the world had long awaited to bring us to salvation. And the fool man meant his words literally.
So let’s see how Messianic Obama really was by comparing other statements and positions he made, with reality:
We will lower the rising of the oceans.
You can keep your doctor, period.
You can keep your healthcare plan, period.
You will save $2500 a year on healthcare, period.
America can never again achieve three-percent economic growth.
We will contain ISIS.
ISIS is a JV team.
Mine will be the most transparent administration in history.
You didn’t build that!
There’s not a smidgen of evidence of Hillary’s guilt or misconduct.
Russia is no longer a threat to America.
The “red line” in Syria that he failed to enforce.
Blaming a photographer for causing the deaths of Americans in Benghazi.
It costs less to get a gun in America than to buy a book.
Take a gun to a knife fight.
Illegal aliens will never get government healthcare.
Illegal aliens will never get welfare.
Illegal aliens will never get the vote.
Obama claimed his White House “didn’t have a scandal”.
Each item listed above, and many more examples that I can’t recall at this moment, are examples of Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation of America” in which presidential candidates of the opposing party can be spied on by legal teams of the sitting administration with impunity; in which the FBI can accept wholly made up documents as justification to investigate an American citizen; in which FBI and DOJ employees can band together to undermine one presidential candidate and boost the candidacy of another based on the political attitude of the upper echelons of government and of the administration at the time. It appears that what Barack Obama was talking about with his “we are the ones we have been waiting for” is dictatorship, because that’s what the Democrat party has brought us to the verge of since the election of Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, one of the wealthy corporations that does business in Seattle happens to be Amazon, which is being asked to pay ever-higher taxes to support the homeless residents of the city. Amazon is so wealthy that it would be welcomed by any city in the nation to establish a corporate presence there, and is run by the single most wealthy man in the world, and this richest-of-the-rich man, who would ordinarily support leftist government tax increases in order to support those who cannot or will not work, resents being used as a prop for Seattle‘s big-government expansion. Or maybe it‘s that this rich man doesn‘t mind high taxes, which may intimidate and financially hurt his business competition, but he will not put up with taxes that actually hurt his own bottom line.
So at what point are taxes too high, even for the most wealthy of corporations? Amazon is so steadfast in its opposition to the Seattle head-tax that it is stopping construction on one of its two major building projects and is making noises like they could leave Seattle altogether if taxes become too high.
This how-much-is-too-much argument is similar to the decades-old tussle about how high minimum wages should be when they are imposed on companies by government. Seattle has already received much negative feedback on this minimum pay issue via the loss of many nice restaurants located in that city, which closed after their wages went beyond what they could withstand and remain in business, because of Seattle’s minimum wage laws. If $10 and hour is good and $15 a hour is even better, they why not impose a minimum wage to $100 an hour and really spread the wealth?
But any business owner knows that there is a price point beyond which it cannot sustain profitability and beyond which it cannot establish prices that will attract people to buy their product or service. If employees are making $100 an hour, then customers making $20 an hour will not be able to afford to shop there.
The same is true of taxes: when a head-tax bends the line of profitability downward, businesses will close and leave the city or state and go elsewhere, to a locale that appreciates the reasonable taxes and the reasonable salaries that it can pay and still make a profit.
Will this argument between big government leftists cause Seattle to re-think their pretend compassionate “sanctuary“ nonsense pitch to the homeless and encourage the city officials to make life in their city a bit less pleasant for those who will not work? One seriously doubts it.
Liberals are so self-centered in their assuredness of the good works they do, especially in the era of Trump and his rebuke of the idea that government must make all things available to all people, and especially with the President’s tax reduction for America’s citizens and his rejection of offering illegal aliens a warm place to sleep, that they will deny Trump any ground on any argument he wants to make. So they’ll stick with their promise of all things to all people even though they cannot possibly afford to further this logically failed promise. President Trump believes in helping more people find jobs so they can be successful and take pride in raising families, accumulating wealth and being independent from government.
And will Amazon re-think its big-government, high tax favoritism? Only when its own Ox is being gored, and then they will scream their heads off, as they are doing in Seattle, and pretend that there is no lesson to be learned about big-government over-stepping its bounds in this current affair. People like Jeff Bezos may be successful and rich, but he’s not a very thoughtful person, so the larger issue will completely escape him.
You see, liberals don’t really give a damn about their fellow man, beyond giving compassionate lip service and a pittance by way of money, most of which only enriches governmental entities anyway. If they did care, they would give up their private jets and multiple mansions and give their excess fortunes to the poor, like the old Christian saints did. Instead they insult Christianity, ignore the saints, and make socialistic noises that they neither understand nor mean, and just continue to make billions more dollars for themselves.
Really thoughtful people are in favor of individuals making billions of dollars, but not when they are lying hypocrites.

No mother, father, brother or sister can ever “heal” following the violent death of a family member, no matter how publicly the left parades the politically viable act. Such emotional events only give the left another venue from which to stir up emotions on a larger scale and pitch their single solution to these horrible happenings: confiscate all guns.
For the family there is no such thing as “healing” following the death of a loved one, although they may take some comfort in accepting that the pain will soften and become less sharp over time; but it will never go away. And at the community level, exactly what is this “healing” thing, and what is the meaning of the word “closure” in this context? It’s a political movement, fed by pain and suffering, conducted by the anti-constitution left and their hate for America and its traditions, and nothing else.
When one considers the out-of-control number of shooting deaths that occur every week in Democrat-run cities like Chicago and Baltimore, in which gun control is most harshly legislated and enforced, and when one realizes that there is neither appropriate action taken against, nor sufficient investigations launched to identify the killers of, these events, other than pleading the charges down for a more rapid abandoning of these types of cases, one realizes why these crimes are so prevalent in cities that claim to be “sanctuary cities” but are really just Democrat-controlled crime zones.
The only way Americans can be “healed” from its plague of school shootings is to limit gun sales to people who are rigorously vetted, identify those already in possession of guns who are possibly dangerous people, and to have armed personnel in schools to halt attackers when they present themselves.

Enough with the leftist crap already. The only reason Democrats would put on a blasé front for this third-world political tactic, other than protecting the Obama administration and many other high ranking Democrat swamp dwellers who were in league with Obama, is that they know that Republicans would never attempt such a subversive series of actions, so they know that there will never be a like-kind payback. And they know that Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America” would look exactly like this. No thinking person can doubt that this is exactly what a radical, leftist, anti-America administration would do to remain in power and extend their rule as they undermine the stable rule of law and the American constitution.
The entire burden of guilt sits on the shoulders of Democrats and they can’t point a finger of blame at Republicans for this horrendous, and likely criminal, political scandal.

But now that even The New York Times has spilled the beans on the Obama administration and its attempts to get the goods on Trump by having paid informers spy on his campaign staff, Brennan is threatening Trump with unspecified punishment if he continues to try to bring justice and fair pay back to American government and politics. Mr. Brennan is making himself look foolish by criticizing the very things in Trump that the American people voted for and want to succeed.
One suspects that Brennan fears for his own continued liberty as his lying words, and the under-oath words of many of his leftist colleagues, are considered in the current investigation into the cover-up and the actual commission of the Obama-era political crimes and misdeeds.
If only Hillary had won the White House none of this honesty and transparency would have happened, and the Obama culprits could have sat back and enjoyed the good life at the expanse of America’s future and prosperity. But Donald Trump won, totally unexpectedly, and now the crimes of the left are being exposed, and the rats are beginning to scramble for the protection of darkness. Mr. Brennan’s threats against President Trump are a waste of his odious breath, and hopefully soon, Mr. Brennan will be frog-walked to his jail cell where he can bask in the glow of his formerly lofty, big-shot government perch, where he can fondly recall his abuse of his political opponents, done with impunity, and smile while they protested and twisted in agony at being denied the constitutional rights and protection that were lavished on Democrat operatives.
One hopes the likes of John Brennan rot in hell for the political crimes they have committed. Judgment day is coming, and the truth shall set us all free. Well, all except John Brennan.

What in the hell are these stupid, idiotic people in the Democrat party thinking, and what will decent American citizens do if Democrats ever take back power in Congress or, God help us all, the White House? One can almost understand how Nancy Pelosi sees a “spark of divinity” in MS13 when her party actively and happily supports and promotes abortions so a baby’s body parts can be harvested and sold to the highest bidder. On the surface of her position one can see a logical parallel between the American lefts’ marketing of baby organs and MS13’s raping, beatings and murders. No wonder Nancy sees “divinity” in MS13; she is certain of it in herself.
And it should not be forgotten that, in the Democrats’ chosen role of dumb and dumber, the Trump presidential campaign was actively spied on by the FBI in 2016, under authority of Barack Obama, and there is clear evidence that the current special counsel investigation of our President is based on trumped-up charges and purchased documents used as FBI evidence, which set of facts is about as dangerous to our nation as anything that has ever been seen before. So Democrats plot their opponent’s defeat under authority of the FBI and the Obama White House, while speaking kindly of murderous thugs who have invaded our nation illegally. Is American in trouble or what?

Similarly, the modern Democrat party and their worship of Barack Obama, accompanied by a policy of allowing all immigrant aliens to cross our southern border and join a sanctuary city, are current-day examples of this ancient idol worship from which there are no deviations nor exceptions allowed. Quite simply put, if you don’t believe like a Democrat you can lose your job or live with threats on your life and family. Thankfully the predicted blue wave that was to sweep President Trump and his MAGA policies away has turned out to be only a white-colored ripple on still waters, so with any luck the current society of anti-American Democrats are in their death throe and will become just a footnote to history soon.
California is in the process of disallowing, by statute, any cooperation with federal government attempts to control America’s borders, which control is a constitutional duty left to the feds alone, and under the Obama administration the Supreme Court confirmed that the various states are not allowed any input to immigration control. Isn‘t it odd how anti-American rulings made to benefit Obama‘s dictatorial rule can come back to reverse radical Democrat policy? The Sacramento criminal element running California, via the Democrat party, has established sanctuary cities that harbor criminals who then prey on the non-criminal alien majority and United States citizens alike, with impunity. The federal government must put a stop to this illegal practice and bring California into compliance with federal law and the constitution.
Donald Trump has been able to eliminate leftist schemes like global warming and the very dangerous and destructive Iran nuke deal, and Democrats lose their minds in irrational opposition to this new, non-politician, constitutional actor in Washington, and every action taken by Trump is treated like a rejection of sun-god worship from America’s political leftists.
The old leftist orthodoxy has been voted out of office, but Democrats are unable to adapt to the new constitutional, law-abiding order, so one hopes they resign themselves to death in the wilderness and give up their opposition to America’s return to law-abiding, constitution behavior.
