“The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.
In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Joe’s
younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they
showed up with Joe’s other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge
fund’s chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm
executive who was present.
. “We’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”……
“We’ve got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company,” the executive remembers James Biden saying.”
Tulsi Gabbard said she would not run on a third party ticket. She said she’s a Democrat. Too bad. Not that she is not pursuing a third party run, but that she’s a Democrat.
Her response that HRC, is a symptom of the rot that is in the Democrat party isn’t true. I see honesty, courage, and a person with a mission. The rot in the Democrat party has metastasized and has spread to its core.
It’s spread to our State Department, Foreign Policy, Media, The Military Industrial complex, and Campaign Finance. (Across party lines) Other wise Republicans would not repeat our need to remain in the Middle East, Northern Africa, or NATO as it now functions.
We have replaced the old Imperialist in being the Worlds police, however they plundered poor nations, and their national interest was always a lie, unless you consider enriching their nation while plundering Africa, Mideast, Asia, and the world’s resources for European national policies.
The age of Imperialism has become an age of Trade. The US has kept all the traditional imperialist trade routes open and defended, including through nefarious means, have ensured favorable trading conditions remained.
As a veteran and American you should see the wasted blood and National resources this foreign policy has left America.
ENOUGH! This is the Democrat party and policy of Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton, and Obama. All the leeches on our foreign fools game, knew HRC would continue this ignorance. And they have been on the offensive, since 2016.
Today, a news report said Hillary R. Clinton is considering a run for the Presidency. The mud and blood that is stuck to this monster should be apparent to all decent Americans. However, party loyalties, traditions, corrupt leadership has duped Americans to not see the Democrat parties evils while in plain sight.
Tulsi Gabbard does not belong in the Democrat party. Many of us who are for peace, social responsibility, and providing hope and assistance to those who felt none. Also know Republicans are not free from campaign funds corruption,
Yet, we have observed and we are Republicans. Not the Republicans of the single believed, phrases of contempt; from parents, unions, ministers, or those whose voice they respect. We must think afresh, look through clear eyes, and let a paradigm shift move us into a new path, away from the ROT of HRC and her elite cronies.
Trump will easily defeat Hillary on a clear field. But if she runs, hell hath no fury like an HRC scorned or beaten. She will stop at nothing to win this time, including murder or any egregious she deems necessary. No moral compass, opens many opportunities.
“All it takes for evil to win is for good people to do nothing.” I believe Tulsi Gabbard is a good person and redefines her mission.
If Hillary runs my little Free Press blog, will concentrate every day on exposing HRC’s very dark past, I know much but look forward to new discoveries. I may not reach many minds, but I will persist, without fear, any.
I just hope one person who reads this will feel likewise.
Make America Respected Again
By Jim Kirk-Wiggins, (c) October 23, 2019, Liberi Press.
Democrat candidate Tulsi Gabbard, just had a Bitch fight with Hillary Clinton. There was a lot of insane charges from Hillary Clinton. And talk of Tulsi Gabbard running on a third party ticket.
I haven’t heard any announcement of such. I think when the Democrats convention takes place, all the candidates will appear weak, Bernie Sanders maybe dead from heart failure, God rest his soul.
I believe Hillary Clinton has a fantasy of saving a locked Convention, and try to unite the party enough to get the necessary votes for nomination.
And she might if she can keep her mouth shut and not accuse others of being Russian spies. As she did, Tulsi Gabbard, a decorated combat veteran. HRC said Russia was grooming her as a third party candidate.
Which might conflict with HRC’s delusion of last minute Convention savior. Thus HRC has already pulled the Russian card on someone who she in her psychopathic illusions deems a threat.
Nevertheless, all psychosis, fantasy, from the great and powerful OZ, HRC, may have a tiny point. Ms Gabbard didn’t rule out a third party run in her verbal defense of HRC’s, vicious Terrorist attacks on her. I had to say all this to get to one point and Question.
Most of you are probably so much more intelligent than me, so I seek your wisdom. If war veteran, and the only articulate candidate, Tulsi Gabbard were to be a third party candidate, would she really hurt HRC, or possibly Trump.
To be on the safe side, the GOP should find their own third party candidate that is covered in Liberal-Radical fumes. Because she may hurt Trump enough to give Big Mother the election.
Or offer Tulsi a nice position if she scraps any third party nonsense and comes out for Trump. Just don’t offer her the Ukraine ambassadors position.
If you can figure out what I’m asking, what affect will a third party Tulsi Gabbard have on the election. If only a member of the squad would, go third party.
Yes, go for it Squad, don’t leave the Democrat party with old ideas, who’s time it is to go.

The United States has spent EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS fighting and policing in the Middle East. Thousands of our Great Soldiers have died or been badly wounded. Millions of people have died on the other side. GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST IS THE WORST DECISION EVER MADE….. (President Trump)
President Trump ordered 1000 US troops out of Syria in October 2019, and said he was keeping his pledge to end the forever wars in the Mideast. The troops haven’t returned home and are still in the area. If he is truly for peace in the Mideast and to end Forever Wars, then he will prove that when he begins real withdraws out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and all Mideastern nations. He should do this quickly. Now. He’s already got the criticism.
When President Johnson (Democrat) ordered the removal of troops from South Vietnam, we deserted our allies. We knew they would be defeated quickly, and the consequences against National and Military Leaders would be severe. It was anything but an orderly withdrawal, it was chaotic. After the collapse of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam war, it has been estimated over 200,000 South Vietnamese were sent to re-education camps and 30,000 were beheaded from a CIA informant list. (Wikipedia)
Thus as America’s dark half of Congress criticizes and morns for the Kurd’s, it is obviously politics, continued since 2016. The dark media has of course followed. The Military-Industrial complex has followed, as we hear from retired Generals and military officers. Congress is certainly being lobbied intensely by Defense Contractors. Our enemies in the Mideast area will try to pull us back into Mideast war; Russia, Iran, ISIS, other Terrorist and other enemies. The fearful Arab nations will also.
Regardless of his actions, President Trump will be severely attacked. Pardon my crudeness but; If President Trump took a dump, Schumer would yell; “Its to little to late, Nancy Pelosi would cry, “what will our allies think of us now”, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, The FOUR will Chorus; “He will leave the area in Chaos. Candidate Joe Biden will promise, “No member in my administration will ever take a dump.” Sanders will say, “taking a dump is a selfish elitist action. Elizabeth Warren will swear, “I have never taken a dump, and give you my word I never will.”
Hatred, war, violence, fear are all hardwired into our Tribal instincts of survival. It takes little effort to call them up, they remain ready to attack anyone or any people who are not in our perceived Tribe. However, Peace, Love, Compassion, Kindness, Altruism; these seem to be not of a natural origin.
Our awareness of them comes suddenly without effort, they just seem to appear in our Consciousness out of the ether or elsewhere. While many species of animals do demonstrate emotions or instinct we would consider as these qualities. However, Humans are the only ones who have built enduring cities, Kingdoms, and Nations. Feeling an affinity for people 1000 miles away. (Except Whales, and who knows about them, they may be gods.)
GOOD AND EVIL
We recall our immediate past of those leaders who personify Good and Evil.
Evil: Pot Poi, Kim Jong-Il, Himmler, Mulrad Sultan, King Leopold, Emperor Hirohito, HRC
Considered Good: Chief Little Raven, Martin Luther King jr., Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, Lincoln, Jesus.
We must support any peace initiative. It will be extremely difficult for President Trump to maintain his proclaimed intention to end the Forever wars in the Mideast. The start of peace and the end of peace are often very messy. As I’ve written previously, our culture, glorifies war and violence, We have recently been paying the price for it. For the good of our children, the children of the world, and the future of mankind; We Must Give Peace A Chance.
Peace to you. by Jim Kirk-Wiggins, October 15, 2019. LiberiPress.com
(A Follow On Piece To This Previous Post is coming soon. Reading This Piece Fresh In Your Mind, Will make the follow on click right in place.)
Many now believe an Elite mob controls most of the money in the US and use the money for power, political power. A large majority of Americans don’thave trust in America’s major Institutions. Congress, the President, Education, The Media, and Large Corporations. The gulf between the wealthy and the other 90 % of Americans is staggering.
Our Media is owned by Five major corporations, 90% of the information provided to us is from these Five corporations. It has become so obvious that the Liberal, Progressive, and Anti-Trump Agenda is promoted 24/7 by these Five. Usually using the same narrative on every issue. Journalism has been replaced by entertainment for advertising money. Thus, our ability to make informed decisions has hoodwinked all of us.
Since this Power and Control is greatest on congress, we expect no laws coming forth to control it.
We must break the dominance of the top 10%, by breaking up their monopolies, resulting in targeted lobbying and resulting in the control and corruption of our congress. We cannot depend on our existing institutions, especially congress to make any substantial remedy for America bound, Kidnapped, and Extorted by the Elite.
Campaign Finance law and rules must-be totally shredded, and replaced with democracy protection, and a new People Campaign finance.
We need a New Constitutional Convention, to update our constitution to reflect the lessons we’ve learned in the last 200+ years. To strengthen our Democracy. Protect us from Oligarchs, and an encroaching; Plutocrat government.
Not a redistribution of wealth, or to kill incentives, nor reduce investments. If the Elite think this is so, too bad, we need to reclaim democracy and end the Plutocracy creep with all their advantages, and privilege, they have woven into this American abomination.
It’s not white privilege, it’s aristocratic privilege. America’s wage earners and middle classes are all being pushed back from the table.
Consider; John Biden’s son, Hunter, as a typical Aristocrat. Given the advantages of a Yale education, Naval Reserve officer, joined a major law firm, then he was mysteriously chosen to be on the board of an Ukraine Oil company, who was expected to get a windfall of prosperity, as America had assured them assistance to vastly increase their oil production after Russia had recently cut them off.
Then his firm, somehow landed a 1 1/2 Billion dollar account in a Chinese bank, controlled by the Chinese government. Just three weeks after Joe Biden visited China, representing the US Government. Hunter was on their board also, with an estimated $500,000 share in the fund being set up. John Kerry’s stepson was also a board member. The good ole boys are now the aristocracy.
The Aristocracy class, with their families have a clear advantage. Also a clear advantage for corruption, graft, and disloyalty. Free, and protected from criminal suspensions or called out by media or party. This is privilege!
The following polls and data will help you see the seriousness of America’s slide. I fully expect the Elite, with their Power and Money domination, if not checked will move quickly further, tightening control on populace opinions, a pretense to increase restriction of out freedoms, and virtual slavery of the wage class, through the 90% of Americans.
Power Corrupts. Then Corrupts more. Corruption spreads like am invisible plague. We may see the rise of,
“Poll: Majority of Americans dissatisfied with U.S.politics, doubt divisions will improve soon
The newly released [October 2018) survey found that morethan 8 in 10 Americans think the country is greatly divided about importantvalues. Just 20 percent of Americans say they think the country will becomeless divided over the next few years, and 39 percent think things will getworse. A strong majority of Americans, 77 percent, say they are dissatisfiedwith the state of politics in the country.” *
“It is not just that the one tenth of 1% owns more wealth than the bottom 90%. They don’t put their wealth underneath their mattresses, right. They use that wealth to perpetrate, perpetuate their power. And they do that politically” –
The familiar part of Article V of the Constitution states thatCongress, with the two-thirds approval of both the House and the Senate, canpropose amendments to the Constitution, subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states. But there is a second path: “on the applicationof the legislatures” of two-thirds of the states, Congress “shall call a conventionfor proposing amendments,” the amendments being subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states.
The polarization of America almost 50/50, lack of ourcongress to work together, Violent and provocative speech by Congress and thePresident. The inability to get true and timely information from our media, whohas also turned up the rhetoric. They have all been irresponsible and blind tothe danger they are putting our democracy in. All of this could, and I believewill lead to great violence in America. Possibly a revolution of some scope.
It can start with two-thirds of the state legislatures. Bypassing our current political swamp, media betrayal, and the Elites. But the Elites will not go down without a fight, so this most be a populous and grass roots effort. We need respected and well-known leaders, unencumbered by politics or Elitist. Who are you! Where are you! Here the call of our forefathers! God bless America.
By James Kirk-Wiggins, October 13, 2019, Liberti Press
Again due to the tragic events by Nancy Pelosi, The Global Elites, and Media Oligarchs will continue their attempt at a regime change in America.
I feel impelled to respond, and divert from my sites mission. However, America has been a true light to the world, and since 2016, it can only be described as the darkest evil placing its growing shadow over our land.
Certainly our courageous, Commander and Chief, and his beautiful family may be expected to become weary and discouraged. But they have showed nothing but strength and courage.
We must lift them up in our prayers, organized speeches, and peaceful nation wide protest. We need a grass roots movement with financial support as the Zombies got from Soros and World wide Globalist.
Stand up for America, against this symbol of the whore of Babylon and the Anti-Christ. Stand up for our President and America.
Trump impeachment is a disgrace to American democracy. It is so obviously a blatant political move, supported by the 5 Elite owned media corporations. The destroyers of the truth and diverse, and opposing views. A FREE PRESS!
The Zombie media continues to follow the pack toward chaos, lies, and an agenda the pinochle media spews and likely isn’t privy to the circle of Power.
Corrupted and bought politicians, dependent on campaign contributions as a calfs, directed focus on his mother’s teats describes our legislators.
The cabal of media oligarchs turned a blind eye to; Clinton selling 90% of US uranium to Russian owned company. Whose CEO of the company is good friends with Clinton’s, who often used his private Jet. He also was connected to the Clinton Foundation and a heavy donor.
Joe Biden’s legacy
The media fat capitalist also ignored, Biden’s threat to withhold a billion dollars of US aid, if his son, who was under scrutiny, and a board member of the very company being investigated by the Ukraine AG wasn’t fired immediately.
The two year investigation by the then Attorney General of Ukraine, would be required to be fired to secure the aid package.
No explanation has been given. What was Biden’s son doing on a Ukraine corporations board, how was he hired, paid, and what was his qualifications.
It just so happens that Ukraine was one of the two European nations Obama assigned Biden to assist, counsel, and observe. Is it a coincidence his son was hired by a Ukraine company?
An offer Ukraine could not refuse, “fire the AG investigating my sons company, or I, Joe Biden. am personally going to see you do not get the $Billion aid from the US. Tell me by 6 PM or the deal is off.
Quid pro quo so obvious somebody who just watched Judge Judy would get it. Nepotism, corruption, immoral, a gangster move and total shame for America and her reputation.
While sect of State, HRC was in Russia negotiating with the Oligarchs in the development of a Russian Silicon Valley, with 25 US High Tech companies who all but two contributed heavily to the Clinton Foundation.
Bill was making speeches in Russia for $1 million.
The Pentagon was uncomfortable with the possible military use of our technology being given away. No coverage of this either.
This was never on the media, never investigated. Soros and Global Elites are making a move to force US support of Globalism.
HRC was heavily supported and would have started the process. Trump trashed their plans and a global conspiracy has tried to remove him since 2016.
Hillary Clinton received 75% more in campaign contributions than Trump. She had serious medical problems, fainted often, and was unhinged in temper and outburst, told by those who knew her. She still took beating from Donald Trump, say it again, Trump whipped her arse.
Our national sovereignty is at stake. This has all been a coup attempt by Global Elites, Soros, Obama, Clinton’s, Nancy Pelosi, and certain EU nations.
Germany is likely spearheading the EU support, continuing their long tradition of Power madness and chaos addiction. Nazism and White supremacy scum are on a fast track rise in Rhineland.
US patriots must stand against this attack on America, Trump, and democracy,
The dark corrupt plague on America must be met and sanitized.
This is a world war, and a clear and present danger to the American people. You will become impoverished slaves of the Global Elites, who will strip away our natural resources.
Just as these same families of imperialist did to the entire continent of Africa, a continent pushed away from hope of future prosperity.
America will become a depleted skeleton, a historical footnote. A sunken Atlantis, never to rise again.
This metamorphosis to a Plutarch Government, will put their iron boots down on the middle class, poor, and everyone not of their anointing.
I am a man of peace and never recommend violence.
Jim Kirk-Wiggins September 26, 2019. (Revised Oct 8, 2019)
The Kurds have been faithful and resourceful allies in Afghanistan, Northern Iraq, and Syria. Many US Special Forces and Commanders will likely feel wrath at our abandoning the Kurds.
The President’s announcement of bringing home the troops from Syria will undoubtedly leave the Kurds, at Turkey’s “National Interest”, or possibly genocide. However, our longest war in the Mideast, needs a fresh look and hard choices.
Joe and Hunter Biden, Ukraine, China; all a coincidence
Biden accuses the following stories as typical Trump dirty tricks. Look for yourself.
CSPAN Transcript of Inteview: You Tube
And I went over, I guess,
the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was
another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from
Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor.
And they didn’t.
So they said they had — they were walking out
to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to
give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the
president. The president said — I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you,
you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion.
I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at
them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re
not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they
put in place someone who was solid at the time.
The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton (Fox News) Billions of dollars transferred to Hunter Biden’s firm per Steve Hilton. Hunter Biden on the board of a company who sold spyware face recognition Software for China to clamp down on descendants.
My piece in the @NYTimesOpEd today on the Bidens:
“Congress can and should conduct an inquiry to determine whether anything
“As vice president, Joe Biden served as point person on American policy toward China and Ukraine. In both instances, his son Hunter, a businessman, landed deals he was apparently unqualified to score save for one thing: his father,” Schweizer also wrote.
He was attempting to control corruption. That’s why he wanted them to fire the prosector, Biden suggested. Biden says we’re holding back the Billion dollar loan guarantee’s if you don’t fire the prosecutor before I leave in six hours. They fired the prosecutor.
Question: Was he motivated by trying to control or reduce Ukraine Corruption, by threatening to withhold the Billion dollar loan guarantee unless they fire the alleged corrupt state prosecutor?
In 2014 Ukraine rioted over corruption. Joe Biden wen to Ukraine
to help control the corruption.
Three weeks later Biden’s son if offered a job on the board
of directors of Burisma which was under investigation for corruption, and paid
Hunter Biden’s firm over one million dollars a year. No charges have been
brought against Burisma. Same month Joe Biden announced his candidacy for
President, Hunter Biden resigned from Burisma. Hunter was recently discharged
from the Navy reserves for testing positive for Cocaine. Had no known
experience in natural gas or Ukraine.
In Dec. 2013 Biden visits China and by his side is his son hunter. Two weeks later Hunters firm created an investment fund with the bank of china, controlled by the government of China. They hoped to earn 1.5 Billion dollars, Hunter still plays a roll in the fund and his stake is about $500,000.
New York Times, “Joe Biden, his son and the case against a Ukrainian oligarch,” by James Risen: “When Vice President Biden traveled to Kiev, Ukraine, on Sunday for a series of meetings with the country’s leaders, one of the issues on his agenda was to encourage a more aggressive fight against Ukraine’s rampant corruption and stronger efforts to rein in the power of its oligarchs. But the credibility of the vice president’s anticorruption message may have been undermined by the association of his son, Hunter Biden, with one of Ukraine’s largest natural gas companies, Burisma Holdings, and with its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, who was Ukraine’s ecology minister under former President Viktor F. Yanukovych before he was forced into exile. Hunter Biden, 45, a former Washington lobbyist, joined the Burisma board in April 2014. … Geoffrey Pyatt went on to call for an investigation into ‘the misconduct’ of the prosecutors who wrote the letters. In his speech, the ambassador did not mention Hunter Biden’s connection to Burisma. But Edward C. Chow, who follows Ukrainian policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the involvement of the vice president’s son with Mr. Zlochevsky’s firm undermined the Obama administration’s anticorruption message in Ukraine.”
THE GUARDIAN – MAY 14, 2014
I get it: he likes to keep busy. He has even found the time to join the board of a gas company called Burisma Holdings Ltd.
Because he’s the vice-president’s son! That’s a coincidence. “This is totally based on merit,” said Burisma’s chairman, Alan Apter.
He doesn’t sound very Ukrainian. He’s American, as is the other new board member, Devon Archer.
Who? Devon Archer, who works with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca partners, which is half owned by Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm founded by Archer and Christopher Heinz.
Who? Christopher Heinz … John Kerry’s stepson.
I think Putin’s propaganda people can take a long weekend; their work is being done for them. What do you mean?
Hasn’t Joe Biden pledged to help Ukraine become more energy independent in the wake of its troubles with Russia? Well, yes.
And isn’t Burisma, as a domestic producer, well positioned to profit from rising gas prices caused by the conflict? Possibly, but Hunter Biden is a salaried board member, not an investor. According to anonymous sources in the Wall Street Journal, neither Rosemont Seneca nor Rosemont Capital has made any financial investment in Burisma.
So it’s not fishy at all? No one’s saying that.
THE GUARDIAN – MAY 14, 2014
There certainly is a lot of circumstances and opportunities
for corruption by Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s involvement. The coincidences
are extraordinary, surely an ethical and savvy politician would have seen the
danger and would have avoided in semblance of impropriety. Joe Biden did not.
If he’s not complicit in a quid pro quo in Ukraine or China he didn’t use good
judgment in allowing his son to get million dollar deals on his coattails.
For an old spy and
codebreaker like myself, nothing in the world happens by coincidence. (Malcolm
Coincidence is the word
we use when we can’t see the levers and pulleys. (Emma Bull)
A common complaint about stories that include excessive
coincidence is that the story is ‘unrealistic.’ (Jane Lindskold)
I don’t believe in coincidence. (Juliette Binoche)
Some people do believe in Coincidence, but in their narrative or face you always see a smile or an eye blink. I’ll just conclude as I started; IF IT LOOKS LIKE A DUCK, WALKS LIKE A DUCK, QUACKS LIKE A DUCK, IT MUST BE A DUKE.
By Jim Kirk-Wiggins, October 10, 2019. Liberti Press.
Below are a lot of figures of who’s on first and who’s
outfield. I called America a Plutocracy; a government ran by the rich. Money
and Power are often the same. These are the Elites who control our political
parties, our representatives and senators, the PACS, the organizations and
corporations. Thus they control who get’s elected and the elected if they want
re-election. This must all be stripped away. All of it. PACS Gone.
Organizations and Corporation donors gone, donations to parties, and parties
and other candidates’ donations. All that should remain is individual donors
and a severe limit on this.
This is the only way to break up the Plutocracy from
controlling our government. If congress cannot fix their own house we should
tear their house down. Vote everyone out. No incumbents. Just say NO!
The next thing to strip this Elite shadow government or
Plutocracy is severe Anti-Trust legislation. No exceptions. Including Media,
Energy, Banks, Transportation, every privately-owned organization. It’s
happened in the past with the railroads, Standard Oil, and Bell Telephone come
to mind. If we want to get our country back this as a minimum must be done.
This is not negotiable in a democracy or a representative republic.
If you haven’t noticed the Elite controlling our nation,
then you aren’t paying attention. Of course the media is controlling the
information you get, and the Plutocracy is trying to keep you occupied with “bread
and circuses” (Fat and Happy or a diversion)
I’m not calling for storming the capital, anarchy, Bernie
Sanders Socialism, or Marxism. I’m calling for Democracy Now!
Look over the numbers, and see what you see.

My grandmother, from Savannah Georgia, always voted Democrat. Any conversation always led back to The Great Depression.
I ask my dad, who was a loyal member of a national Trade Union. His response was simply; The Democrats are for the working man, Republicans look after the rich.
Wasn’t President Lincoln a Republican?
From a Member of the ObamaCoalition
Obama is a racist without a doubt If he believes this, to feel Trump was somehow connected to election of a black president followed by election of a white President? Is this Obama’s view.
Obama’s disappointing performance as the first Black President, certainly hurt Hillary’s campaign.
What is so amazing is many Americans automatically vote Democrat, when it’s so obvious their vote is taken for granted and with no benefit received.
From elder white southerners who’s families were staunch democrats since Franklin Roosevelt.
Trade unionists who have seen their plants close, from trade agreements supported by the Democratic Party.
With our media information 90% supporting the Democrat party, it’s unlikely for Americans to know the truth. A early warning on this from our founding fathers.
Finally, the election of America’s first Black President, which I initially supported. And after 8 years to see Black America has greater, unemployment, lower wages, no prison, or effort for police education and reform.
Look around at the Black communities in most American largest cities. Are they better off after 8 years from a Black Democrat President. He was always more Democrat than black.
It’s time that many Americans rethink, those who vote straight democrat every election as if they had no choice.
You have a choice, it will be difficult to become an informed voter with most media obviously practically part of the Democratic Party.
And any conflicting opinions labeled as right wingers, racist, or Nazi’s.
Quit being the Democratic parties door mat. Make them earn your vote or vote for someone else or boycott the vote.
This was an editorial by the Washington Post, over a year ago. I was of course suspicious by that alone. However, it appears almost on target.
Before the American revolution the English representatives were hereditary or despotic. Keeping the same elite aristocracy as the major representatives for all the people.
The middle tier, farmers, labors were very under represented. As the cost for a seat in the USA costs $1 million to $10 million. With SUPER PACS and major donations coming from the wealthy Elite. Who through their purse strings actually control congress.
Thus we have the same Oligarchs as pre- revolution England.
Our congress has become so polarized, set in a time loop of continuous, intrigue, looking for corruption everywhere but in their own house. Thus they are polarized, paralyzed, tigers chasing their own tales.
The English and some US constitutional writers, fear of a too powerful executive branch over the legislative branch is a fact, because the legislature is truly the Circus in America’s government, not Donald Trump.
Another similarity with resistance to English rule was perpetual war. The latest period of wars in the Mideast – Desert Storm 1990, Invasion of Afghanistan 2001, Invasion of Iraq 2004. You could say the troops on the ground and terrorism recruiting as a result, has created a 19 year war, unless you consider state sponsored terrorism beginning in 1990. Thus a 30 year war.
As an afterthought, consider reading Jack London’s “Iron Heal” published one 1904. He did write other books than about dogs. “The Call of the Wild “ was likely one of the first books that got me hooked on reading, no matter how much of a juvenile delinquent I became, I always read.
I don’t necessarily agree we need a revolution, but our government needs to be grabbed by the collar and given a good shaking.
The anger, frustration, politicians destabilizing, and the polarization may actually cause a revolution or a period of nationwide violence with devastating results. Someone or some many, need to start showing restraint and consider doing what’s best for all Americans, and our democracy.
