Politics, Should it be funded by taxes?

UN Funding

The American citizens provide a huge amount of international support outside of tax dollars that the gov’t pours into the UN. Doctors Without Borders, City of Hope, hundreds of private charity organizations such as the Red Cross, and the list goes on. This is not to mention the individual people who volunteer a year or more of their lives to go to hell holes throughout the world, at their own expense, and get paid nothing while they teach people how to get safe water for their villages, grow and rotate healthier crops, maintain cleaner, safer environments for their children, etc.  It is the soldier in the West whose life is always put in danger to fight rogue nations who want to use nuclear weapons to harm the weaker nations.  It is the strength and willingness of the wealthy nations in the West to protect the weaker nations that prevent such disasters.

The tax dollars that would be cut from the UN by what this money grubber from Foreign Policy calls an “unprecedented retreat by President Donald Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen.” (stated by Foreign Policy as quoted in the Conservative Tribune) is not used for those purposes anyway, or at least very little of it is. Most of the funds the UN collects from Western nations end up in the hands of the wealthiest people in the poorest nations and the poorest people see very little, if any, benefit from it. 

The majority of the members of the UN are from nations that are corrupt in the highest degree and truly hate and revile the West because they, even with their corruption, still can’t achieve anything close to an affluent society. This is due mostly because of their corruption, but that doesn’t matter to them. They are constantly telling the West how to live and govern our countries, but they themselves can’t do anything to better their own governments. Yes, we have wealthy people in our governments, but our poorest citizens are living much healthier and more comfortable lives than their citizens. If our wealthiest haven’t sucked everything up and our poor are still so much better off than their poor, who are they to tell us we aren’t compassionate? 

We could give them every dime we have and their poor people would still be no better off because the wealthy in their nations would keep it all for themselves. We have paid and paid and paid to help via their UN members and programs for many years. If they were truly using those funds to help their people, we would see a big difference from what life used to be in those nations. Instead, there are still just as many poor, unhealthy and hopeless people living in abject poverty and degradation there.

It would be stupid and disrespectful to our own citizens to continue to throw our tax dollars, taken from hard working Americans, down such a rat hole run by people who hate and disrespect us while depriving their own people of the help our money could provide to them and then have the nerve to call us uncaring. They need a spanking. Cutting our funding in half would do just that. And if that doesn’t do it, then we should withdraw from the UN completely. They need to learn not to bite the hand that feeds them.  They need to learn to show gratitude and respect to those who voluntarily do so much to help them.  They need to stop demanding we do things their way when the way we do things is obviously so much more successful and beneficial to not only us but them as well.

Crime? What Crime? Provide Some Facts

Sessions never lied about anything. Franken was asking him about the Trump campaign regarding the Russians. Does the left really think that senators don’t talk to foreign dignitaries? Just what do they think the job of a senator is and what do they think senators are expected to do? Of course, as a senator, Sessions spoke with the Russian ambassador. Would the left expect him to refuse to talk to the ambassador? That would be inexcusable behavior and an insult to Russia. I believe those on the left schmooze everyone, foreign and domestic, for money. We on the right work and earn our money by building businesses and providing jobs. Of course, people running for election do attend fund raisers, but they aren’t seeking funds from foreign governments. That would be illegal, a concept the left doesn’t seem to relate to unless they are gunning for someone on the right.
We have election campaigns going on constantly. The left’s way of thinking would mean that no one in government could talk to any foreign dignitaries ever because at some point they might run for re-election and that would be considered collusion. Get a grip! Do you expect us to be total isolationists? Our government officials have to communicate with and show respect toward leaders of other nations. That doesn’t mean we are colluding with them. Do leftists still look for monsters under their beds, too? Talking with people doesn’t mean you get in bed with them. Well, if you’re a left wing nutcase who has no traditional moral values I suppose it may.

Where’s the same outrage toward Hillary for selling 20% of America’s uranium to the Russians? Where’s the same outrage toward both Bill and Hillary for taking tens of millions in “donations” for speeches (ahem) from nations that have proclaimed they want us dead? What about Obama’s statement to a Russian dignitary caught on a hot mic shortly before his re-election when he told the man to let Putin know he would be in a much better position to give Putin what he wanted after he won his re-election? The left doesn’t consider that collusion? But a senator talking to a diplomat from another country in the course of doing his job, not for donations of money, that’s got them all worked up? They have no way of knowing what the conversations were about. They assume the worst and then go about trying to prosecute and pillory the man on those assumptions just because they want it to be true. No facts, just emotion.

I can see where the left would leap to those conclusions because their own side does those things all the time, so they think everyone does. In reality, they are looking in a mirror, not through a window. They are attributing your own actions to others, not seeing what is really going on. They are not simply hammer heads. They are gold plated hammer heads with no concept of reality. Before casting stones at perceived enemies, they really need to do some background checks on the people they think are so pure on the left. Leftists have a real credibility problem and suffer from a dangerously high level of incompetency based on double standards.

Islam is NOT a Religion

Islam is a governmental system. It is a totalitarian system that dominates every aspect of daily life. It is tyranny on steroids. The religion that Islam allows is Muslim. Muslim is a religion, but only able to exist if Islam is the system of government.

Muslim cannot exist without Islam to support it and Islam cannot exist without Muslim followers because neither one allows for any freedom or questioning or individuality. The Muslim faith MUST have a legal system (Sharia) and governmental system (Islam) that will enforce its religious practices or else people will question its practices and many will no longer abide by them. Islam MUST have Muslim believers because without them the government would have too many people questioning its tyrannical hold and dominance over them and many would rise up against that government.

Christianity existed long before there was a USA constitution and without Christianity, the USA would still be able to maintain its legal system and government. The USA does not need world dominance to exist and remain strong on its own. The USA was founded mainly on Christian teachings, but it would survive with Jewish, Buddhist, Daoist teachings just as well. Islam cannot do that, which is why they continually try to force Islam on every living being.

If there is even one person who does not submit to Islam, Islam is imperiled because that one person would be the weak link in their chain of dominance. The human spirit always seeks freedom. That will always be Islam’s weakness.

Constitutional Immigration Policy

 

It is NOT illegal to restrict immigration.

Federal law—specifically 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f)—provides: Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Article VI, Clause 3 states that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” This does not have any effect on immigration status. It only deals with whether someone may be appointed to serve in any capacity at the federal level, not whether someone is allowed to enter the country as a visitor or immigrant.

8 U.S.C. § 1158 clearly requires that, in cases where an applicant for asylum from persecution on religious grounds, “must establish that … religion … was or will be at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant.” If we can allow entrance based on religious persecution, then we can also deny entrance if the applicant’s religion would be detrimental to our own citizens. The only way to know if a person might be persecuted on the basis of their religion is to ask them what their religion is. Therefore, asking what religion an applicant believes in is NOT unconstitutional.

The Immigration and Nationality Act that passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States and includes Public Law 414. Chapter 2 Section 212 prohibits entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” Since it is the stated goal of Islam in the Q’ran that everyone not converted to Islam be killed or pay a punitive tax, no one following the teachings of Islam (Muslim) should be allowed permanent residency here.

Teddy Roosevelt referred to Muslims as “enemies of civilization”, and said, “The civilization of Europe, America and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization.”

Islam is not a religion. Muslim is a religion, but it only exists as a part of Islam. Islam is totalitarian and the religious aspect of it cannot stand on its own. Therefore, if someone is a Muslim, he is an integral part of Islam and ALL of its facets because Islam controls every aspect of daily life including the religious aspect. The Muslim religion cannot be separated from the overall system of Islam. It would be akin to removing a vital organ from a living organism.  The complete organism would die. 

 As Islam is completely bent on the destruction of any person who does not convert to that system, no Muslim can be considered harmless to any other religion, culture or form of government. And certainly, as immigration laws are in place to protect and benefit the American form of government based on the constitution, no person who would follow any other system which intends to destroy our system should be allowed entry into our country.

No, Virginia, the Russians Are Not Coming

Russia maintains it has not been a party to the DNC email hacking. Despite the Obama administration’s claims to the contrary, there has been no proof. All countries are spying on each other all the time. I’m quite sure the USA has found ways to glean top secret info from our spying efforts in Russia, but there is no proof. 

For Obama to make such a public display of unsubstantiated claims against any other country is childish and accomplishes nothing. It makes America look weak and petulent. Putin is not to be trusted, but this last minute attempt to stir the international pot by poking the bear for no reason is not only useless, it is stupid and no president of the USA should ever allow himself to look stupid. 

What purpose is served by Obama’s actions? It doesn’t change the info found in the hacked documents. It doesn’t address the issues those documents raised. It doesn’t weaken an enemy of the state. It’s a pathetic attempt to distract attention from those who wrote those documents and who deserve to be shamed and impeached for their own words. 

For an administration that claimed it would be the most transparent in history, these actions have instead become an incision into the flesh of the most corrupt and excrement-infested, disgustingly putrid boil of an administration we’ve ever been infected with and now the sunlight is penetrating into that wound and exposing it. Of course Obama wants to lay the blame somewhere else. But Russia? Really? Sigh.

Look inward, Obama. Perhaps it is the disgusted and fed up Americans who work in government and the American intelligence community who can no longer stand the deceit, corruption, theft and unbridled manipulation of America’s people and world standing who are shining that bright light on your team’s activities and deeply held perverted convictions. Perhaps you are being hung out to dry by the very people you must rely on to achieve your heinous goals. You’re going down, son, and your comrades are going with you. For myself, I really don’t care if it is because of the Russians, the Chinese, the Swedes or the corner grocer. 

For about 100 years now you socialists have claimed over and over that the end justifies the means and the end you wished for was to make this country a socialist one. Well, it didn’t work. Now the end is going to be the end of you and your wish and the means to bring that about are justified. The nation’s survival as a free and constitutional republic is what matters.

Your attempts at bringing this nation to her knees so that you could transform her into a socialist state by overwhelming the welfare system, causing class warfare, racial strife, civil unrest, anti-Semitism, refusal and/or inability to deal swiftly and decisively with our enemies, insulting behavior and slights toward our allys, hatred for the rule of law, convoluted teaching in our schools of American history and civil law, abuse of the IRS, driving legislation based on political correctness and social justice rather than constitutional law, politicizing everything from what we eat to what we drive and trying to steal privately owned ranch lands from families by imprisoning and even killing the ranchers will all now cease. The UN will no longer make law in this nation and neither will you.  The Congress, the Legislative Branch will take back the law making reins. 

Happy New Year, America. America still stands tall. The wrong shall fail, the right prevail. You had your turn on the playground and bullying didn’t work. We were tolerant a very long time but in the end we realized it was time to return to what is right and what is truly the foundation of this country. In the words of the 44th president, “We won, you lost. Deal with it.” So good bye, Obama. Good bye, socialists.  Reasonable adults who know how to use critical thinking finally have returned and, though it will take time to overcome the damage you, Obama, and your leftist predecessors have caused, it will be accomplished.  The Russians were not our enemies in this.  Whether they hacked into the DNC or the illegal server Hillary had set up or not.  Whoever leaked those documents to Assange did this nation a huge favor in the nick of time.  But the Russians are not seeking to overthrow America.  The socialist left is.  In fact, outside of Islam, the socialist left is this nation’s most dangerous enemy and has been for a long, long time.  Russia may not be our trusted ally, but neither did they present any threat to the legality of the election in November.

Offense Cannot Be Legislated

“The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit.  We are answerable for them to our God.  The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others.”  Thomas Jefferson

 

In other words, if it causes no physical or financial harm, it cannot be legislated or punished because it cannot be submitted to.  Offense is in the eye of the beholder.  It is a choice.  No one should be compelled by government to NOT offend another because it is up to the person who claims offense to be or not be offended.  I cannot be held responsible for your opinion and your opinion is no more valid than mine.  Therefore, be offended if you wish.  It is based on your opinion and your choice.  You cannot force me to agree with you anymore than I can force you to agree with me.  It is not something that can be legislated.   That would be an attempt to force an opinion by restricting freedom of thought and the right to disagree.  It would be TYRANNY.

Bringing Jobs Back Home

Businessmen start businesses to make a profit.  The better they are at that, the more people they can hire.  Businessmen spend years of sacrifice building their businesses.  They don’t take paid vacations or holidays or even weekends off for years at a time.  They miss their children’s recitals and sporting events because they are working 80 hours a week trying to build something for their family’s future.  When and if they finally achieve success, they don’t expect to be regulated and taxed to the point where all that sacrifice wasn’t worth it.  If they can find a more profit friendly environment overseas, they take it.

This country has been over regulating and taxing the businessman into oblivion for many decades.  On top of that, it has given tax breaks to countries selling their products here.  How is a company supposed to compete with that?  Of course those jobs go overseas.  And even then, if those products our companies make overseas come back into this country for sale, they are taxed heavily.

Government makes no product so it cannot generate any revenue.  But it can raise taxes to get revenue.  A company can only raise prices on its product to increase its revenue.  Once the price is too high, they lose customers to their competition and go out of business.  The government doesn’t have any competition.  It can raise taxes until 100% of everything you earn goes to them.  You can’t stop paying them because you aren’t paying taxes by choice.  You are forced to pay taxes or go to prison and lose everything you own.  So the government never has to worry about losing its revenue source.

Trump understands business.  Trump understands trade inequities between countries.  Trump knows that US companies would love to return here, but can’t afford to do business here under the current tax and trade policies.  Want to see companies return and unemployment go down?  Then put Trump in the White House where he can do something about this problem.  When he says he wants to make America great again, a huge part of that is making sure America’s interests are put first ahead of other countries which are reaping unwarranted benefits in unfair trade agreements.  He wants to give our own companies the advantage, which they haven’t had in a very long time.  He isn’t concerned with making international trade agreements that are simply “fair” with other nations.  He wants America to have the advantage.

Life isn’t fair.  There can only be one top dog.  If you want to be top dog you have to act like top dog, and the top dog protects his pack against all comers.
