Trump rides the chariot to victory…..


The election is done, the winner has been decided and some turmoil remains but things will settle down. The Liberal establishment will soon come to grips that their Golden Goose had laid a rotten egg.
Hillary Clinton’s followers learned that her golden crown of precious gems was nothing more than gold plated tin and cut glass inserts.
The Supreme Court will now have Justices that believe in the Constitution and what the Founding Fathers meant when it was written. Our Second Amendment rights are now under more protection with the Socialists out of power and packing their bags for destinations unknown.
The retention of power in the House and Senate insures that UN mandates and treaties such as Agenda 21 will never be approved and if they in the UN continue to try and surpress our Constitution and Bill of Rights, may find us removing ourselves completely from their interference.
Washington DC will now be wiped clean of Muslim influence, the FBI, Homeland Security, Attorney General’s Office and much more will be filled with those who will uphold the law and bring integrity back to those office’s.
The Muslim in Chief has not only lost his party in this election but has lost even more face with world leaders, he is not only a lame duck president, he is a dead duck with world leaders, he not only lost face but lost what little power and sway he had with them.
The time is here to heal the wounds and work together.
LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

GOP Benghazi team brings long list of accusations…..


.

 Republicans hoping to ride their Benghazi investigation to a November election sweep have entrusted a seven-member team with “getting to the truth,” in the words of House Speaker John Boehner, about whether the Obama administration misled Americans about the deadly attack in Libya.

They insist the investigation isn’t political.

But several GOP members of the new House Select Committee on Benghazi have made claims about administration wrongdoing. Some have participated in previous investigations into how the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11, 2012, and how the administration responded.

Democrats have yet to say if they’ll participate in what will be the eighth investigation since the attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in the eastern Libyan city.

Republicans say they need to find out why security was insufficient, what the president did the night of the attack, why the U.S. military didn’t intervene, why initial explanations focused on a protest over a YouTube video and whether the administration deliberately sought to hide evidence about its conduct.

Some of the more contentious arguments made by the GOP members:

___

CHAIRMAN TREY GOWDY:

The second-term tea partyer and former prosecutor from South Carolina said two weeks ago there is evidence of a “cover-up.” He cited a recently released email by White House national security communications aide Ben Rhodes.

He said the email “probably was the straw that broke the camel’s back because that memo made it really clear we’re going to blame an Internet video and not a broader policy failure in Libya.” The White House has said Rhodes was referring to attacks across the Muslim world, not Benghazi specifically.

Gowdy has said former CIA Director Michael Morell “sanitized” a series of talking points used by then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice five days after the violence, substituting the term “extremist” for all references to “terrorist,” and “demonstration” for “attack.” Republicans say this was part of an effort by President Barack Obama’s team to play down a major terrorist attack in the final weeks of his re-election campaign.

In April, Morell testified that he made no changes to provide political benefit to Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is considering running for president in 2016. He said the CIA considers extremist and terrorist as synonyms, and that references to al-Qaida in the talking points were avoided to protect classified sources.

___

REP. MARTHA ROBY:

The 37-year-old Alabama congresswoman, attorney and daughter of a federal judge led the House Armed Services Committee’s investigation. That panel rejected claims by conservatives that the military failed to respond the night of the attack — putting her at odds with other Republicans.

Her investigative panel concluded in a report in February that there was no “stand down” order issued to military personnel in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, who wanted to aid Americans in Benghazi. Select committee colleagues Gowdy and Rep. Jim Jordan have suggested otherwise.

“We simply were not postured to respond in time,” Roby said seven months ago.

___

REP. LYNN WESTMORELAND:

The Georgia congressman also is a veteran of a Benghazi investigation, one conducted by the House Intelligence Committee. In April 2013, he issued a news release describing his “two conclusions”: that Clinton personally denied much-needed additional security for U.S. diplomats in Libya and that White House officials perpetuated a “lie” about the anti-Muslim film “to protect their own backsides.”

Westmoreland pointed to a department cable declining security requests “signed” by Clinton. The conclusion has been widely challenged. The secretary of state’s name is routinely attached to State Department correspondence from Washington, most of which he or she never sees or is consulted on. Lower-level department officials have said they were responsible for specific security decisions related to Benghazi.

In recent days, Democrats have targeted Westmoreland for “politicizing” Benghazi because he serves as deputy chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, which has begun an election-year fundraising drive linked to the attack.

Westmoreland, 64, has been criticized before as being overly partisan. Democrats disparaged him during the 2008 presidential election for describing candidate Barack Obama and wife Michelle as “uppity” — a derogatory term for blacks who sought equal treatment in the segregated South.

___

REP. JIM JORDAN:

The hard-charging conservative and occasional GOP leadership thorn has repeatedly pressed witnesses on Benghazi as a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Jordan has accused Clinton personally of trying to obstruct Congress’ investigation of Benghazi after a top aide asked for a department lawyer to be present when members of Congress spoke with U.S. diplomats in Tripoli after the attack.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Ohio Republican said at a Heritage Foundation event this month that the State Department rejected more than 200 requests for additional security. And when the attack happened, he said there was little effort to fight back. “Why weren’t we running to the sound of the guns?” Jordan reportedly asked.

Jordan, 50, said he wanted to know who started the narrative that Benghazi wasn’t a terrorist attack and has said in the past Republicans would like to have Rice testify about the matter.

___

REP. MIKE POMPEO:

The 50-year-old Kansas congressman similarly has focused on the talking points. In May 2013, he said the State Department and White House produced a document that “didn’t reflect the reality on the ground as they knew it at the time.” He accused “political” actors of withholding intelligence from the public.

“Were we misled?” Pompeo asked Morell at the hearing. “No,” Morell responded. “I have a different view,” Pompeo shot back.

___

REP. PETER ROSKAM

A confidant of Boehner, the congressman from Illinois has been less vocal about Benghazi than many of his colleagues. He may have less motivation to criticize the administration for the wording of its unclassified Benghazi talking points. Two days before the talking points were drafted, Roskam issued his own statement condemning the attacks. Roskam, 52, blamed “violent extremists” and not “terrorists” for the anti-American unrest in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere.

___

REP. SUSAN BROOKS:

The Indiana freshman also has been among the more reserved on Benghazi. The 53-year-old former Bush administration appointee who served six years as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Indiana has said of the attack: “Until we have all the facts, we don’t believe that justice has really been served.”

Reasons for Being a Republican by Ulysses S. Grant……


Ulysses S. Grant
September 28, 1880

IN view of the known character of the speaker who is to address you to-day, and his long public career, and association with the leading statesmen of this country for the past twenty years, it would not be becoming in me to detain you with many remarks of my own. But it may be proper for me to account to you on the first occasion of my presiding at political meetings for the faith that is in me.

I am a Republican, as the two great political parties are now divided, because the Republican party is a national party seeking the greatest good for the greatest number of citizens. There is not a precinct in this vast nation where a Democrat can not cast his ballot and have it counted as cast. No matter what the prominence of the opposite party, he can proclaim his political opinions, even if he is only one among a thousand, without fear and without proscription on account of his opinions. There are fourteen States, and localities in some other States, where Republicans have not this privilege. This is one reason why I am a Republican.

But I am a Republican for many other reasons. The Republican party assures protection to life and property, the public credit, and the payment of the debts of the government, State, county, or municipality, so far as it can control. The Democratic party does no promise this; if it does, it has broken its promises to the extent of hundreds of millions, as many Northern Democrats can testify to their sorrow. I am a Republican, as between the existing parties, because it fosters the production of the field and farm, and of manufactories, and it encourages the general education of the poor as well as the rich.

The Democratic party discourages all these when in absolute power. The Republican party is a party of progress, and of liberty toward its opponents. It encourages the poor to strive to better their children, to enable them to compete successfully with their more fortunate associates, and, in fine, it secures an entire equality before the law of every citizen, no matter what his race, nationality, or previous condition. It tolerates no privileged class. Every one has the opportunity to make himself all he is capable of.

Ladies and gentlemen, do you believe this can be truthfully said in the greater part of fourteen of the States of this Union to-day which the Democratic party control absolutely? The Republican party is a party of principles; the same principles prevailing wherever it has a foothold.

The Democratic party is united in but one thing, and that is in getting control of the government in all its branches. It is for internal improvement at the expense of the government in one section and against this in another. It favors repudiation of solemn obligations in one section and honest payment of its debts in another, where public opinion will not tolerate any other view. It favors fiat money in one place and good money in another. Finally, it favors the pooling of all issues not favored by the Republicans, to the end that it may secure the one principle upon which the party is a most harmonious unit — namely, getting control of the government in all its branches.

I have been in some part of every State lately in rebellion within the last year. I was most hospitably received at every place where I stopped. My receptions were not by the Union class alone, but by all classes, without distinction. I had a free talk with many who were against me in war, and who have been against the Republican party ever since. They were, in all instances, reasonable men, judging by what they said. I believed then, and believe now, that they sincerely want a break-up in this “Solid South” political condition. They see that it is to their pecuniary interest, as well as to their happiness, that there should be harmony and confidence between all sections. They want to break away from the slavery which binds them to a party name. They want a pretext that enough of them can unite upon to make it respectable. Once started, the Solid South will go as Kukluxism did before, as is so admirably told by Judge Tourgee in his “Fool’s Errand.” When the break comes, those who start it will be astonished to find how many of their friends have been in favor of it for a long time, and have only been waiting to see some one take the lead. This desirable solution can only be attained by the defeat, and continued defeat, of the Democratic party as now constituted

The Constitution and some little known facts……


Why do the Presidents & the Courts continually ignore the US Constitution?

Why do the Presidents and the Courts feel that they can routinely ignore, circumvent and break the common laws of the land encapsulated by the US Constitution? This is a complex issue outside the ability to fully explain in one short article. However, the main crux of this issue has to do with the application of maritime and/or Admiralty law over the common law of the land.

What is maritime law? In short, maritime law is the law of commerce on the high seas during a time of peace, while Admiralty law is the law of commerce on the high seas during a time of war or emergency. Such laws were created centuries ago to govern trade between nations. These laws also involved the exchange of promissory notes or bills of exchange. These eventually became today’s fiat paper money.

When the British lost the war militarily for American independence, they did not give up trying to get their former colonies back under imperial control. The King had financed it and with many of the founding fathers help, he won though economic warfare with Admiralty Law, and to this day we are still British Subjects and under The Pope of Rome.

After the US Civil War, in 1871 the US President Grant and the US Congress had been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies. They using a little known loophole in the “Constitution for the united states for America ” via the “commerce clause” to trick American free sovereigns into becoming corporate slaves and property of the corporate United States , a Vatican corporation. This loophole allowed the creation of a second United States . The first was originally founded under common law, and the second United States (a corporate UNITED STATES Inc.) was created to govern commerce between states and nations. This is authorized via the “Commerce Clause” in Article I, section 8, clause 3.

The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States . The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. That freedom ended in 1871 when the original “Constitution for the united states for America ” was changed to the “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, a Vatican corporation.

The Congress realized that the country was in dire financial straits, so they made a financial deal with the devil – international bankers — (in those days, the Rothschilds of London ) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers and the Vatican. The conniving international bankers were not about to lend the floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a way of taking back control of the United States and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed. With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia , a City Nation. It has its own flag, laws, courts and police force.

Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been under-a-permanent-state-of-national-emergency. Every President since President Roosevelt has used these proclamations for the sole purpose of maintaining and extending their own unconstitutional, Caesar-like powers, and those Executive powers continue to increase. There are also the national emergency proclaimed by numeral presidents. In 1939 under the “War and Emergency Powers Acts.”

These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confers enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes. This allows the President to be King and us his subjects or serfs.

How We Americans Have Been Deceived

The 14th Amendment, aka, “the slavery amendment,” only gave the citizens “privileges and immunities” NOT RIGHTS! It further claimed that all citizens born or naturalized via the 14th amendment are under maritime jurisdiction and are thus viewed as a corporate maritime product.

Americans were deceived into being bound by the 14th amendment (a corporation and vessel in the sea of commerce) through scores of unrevealed contracts such as driver’s, hunting and marriage licenses, social security, voter and jury registration, etc. These documents are all legal contracts as well as unrevealed contracts that can and too often do force your compliance under penalty of law!

Since the Federal United States corporation is charged with governing all commerce between states and nations, it is argued that you, because you are now also considered a legal corporation via the 14th amendment and your ALL CAPS name on your birth certificate verify this, are now engaged in commerce in everything you do. This is why the Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts was correct on Obamacare is a tax.

When you are at work earning money, when you drive your car down the road (your car is insured which makes it a vehicle), when you purchase anything and even when you use the toilet (believe it or not), you are engaging in commerce in one form or another and thus fall under the control of the government.
It is through these legal tricks and unrevealed contracts that the federal government is taking more and more control over the lives of the American people, and this is why tyranny is on the rise.
Unless we free ourselves from this corrupt corporate maritime system and get back under the true freedoms given by the U.S. Constitution, we are nothing more than a commercial product to be used and abused at the will of the Federal Corporate United States.

This is, in short, why the U.S. government continues to ignore the Constitution.

Michele Bachmann: The IRS targeting of Tea Party groups tied to Obama’s political agenda…..


The Fine Print
As the chair of the Tea Party Caucus, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R – Minn.) is railing against the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups, saying: “clearly, this had political implications…that would benefit President Obama.”
“Over and over and over, the common thread is the Obama administration was too willing to use the government to advance their agenda, their political agenda,” Bachmann tells The Fine Print.
Bachmann says individuals in the Tea Party have been voicing concerns to her about getting “ridiculous questions” from the IRS for quite some time and asserts that other groups, in addition to the Tea Party, were also targeted.
“The IRS couldn’t do enough to part the waters to make sure that every progressive, left-wing leaning organization got their new tax-exempt status,” she says. “So they were able to get a favorable tax treatment, while Christians, pro Israel, conservative, Tea Partiers, pro-growth, pro-job, pro-business, they were hurt.”
The congresswoman says the recent controversy highlights her broader concerns that the IRS may gain access to people’s medical information under the Affordable Care Act.
“When people realize that their most personal, sensitive, intimate, private healthcare information is in the hands of the IRS that’s been willing to use people’s tax information against political opponents of this administration, then people have pause and they pull back in horror,” Bachmann says.
The Obama administration has refuted the claim that the IRS will handle people’s medical records, but Bachmann is not convinced. The long-time critic of the president’s health care plan led a vote in the House last week calling for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
“Well the ball is in Harry Reid’s court now, because the House of Representatives has done its part,” Bachmann says of the measure that passed the House, but is not expected to gain traction in the Senate.
While the former presidential candidate says she isn’t thinking about running for president again, she isn’t exactly ruling it out either, saying: “you never know.”
“My calculus never has been about politics,” Bachmann says. “It’s really about the issues. And I will tell you, the reason why I ran for president is because I knew I had the backbone and the spine to repeal Obamacare.”

US To Hit $16.4T Debt Ceiling Dec. 31..


Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said his department will take “extraordinary measures” to postpone a U.S. default for about two months while President Barack Obama and Congress work out a deficit-reduction deal.
Geithner, in a letter to congressional leaders today, said the government will hit its statutory $16.4 trillion debt ceiling on Dec. 31. To avert a default, the Treasury will take action to create about $200 billion in headroom under the debt limit.

“However, given the significant uncertainty that now exists with regard to unresolved tax and spending policies for 2013, it is not possible to predict the effective duration of these measures,” Geithner said.
