Russia Trump Investigation Origin Exposed

Russia Trump Investigation Origin Exposed

For a long time, I’ve been wondering where the whole story about President Trump and Russia began. At first thought, I recall asking myself who Vladimir Putin would want in the White House more, Clinton or Trump? Would Putin want a known quantity in Hillary Clinton? Granted, Hillary would have been a bit more hawkish than President Obama but that is like asking which is blander without butter and seasoning, grits or mashed potatoes.

Consider Hillary Clinton’s slogan (can you even remember it?) versus “Make America Great Again.” With those two slogans alone, pretend you are Vladimir Putin with a troubled economy that doesn’t want to see America great again. After all a strong American economy and military would put Russia further down on the stage of world influence. It is as plain as the nose on your face.

Just look at this excerpt from yesterday’s Washington Times (no supporter of President Trump).

Apparently, it’s Bill and Hillary Clinton who’ve been doing the behind-scenes and suspicious dealings with Russia all along. Oh, and perhaps others in the Barack Obama administration, too.

You think special counsel Robert Mueller might switch the target of his investigation any time soon? Seems a bit time-wasting — not to mention taxpayer dollar-wasting — to keep on the Trump trail, desperately searching for signs of a collusion that just didn’t happen.

Hillary Clinton Vladimir PutinAdd to that today’s bombshell that was dropped about those who accused President Trump during the campaign pleading the fifth. Why would Vladimir Putin want a President Trump rather than a President Clinton considering the Obama Administration essentially gave away control of 20% of United States uranium to Russia?

Read full story. Excerpt below.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

Yes, it looks like Hillary Clinton was using the “Clinton Foundation” as a money laundering operation. No, it is not our imagination. No matter how hard Hillary Clinton supporters and President Trump haters want it not to be true, there it is. Apparently, it has all been a masterful spin job accusing President Trump of some kind of illegal dealings with Russia. All the while it was the Clinton’s with possible support from the Obama Administration colluding with the Russians.

Yesterday’s invitation-only event was great! There were around a thousand of us packed into the Fuel Cell hanger at the 193rd SOW at the Harrisburg International Airport. Since I worked there I was able to park on base and visit with some veteran friends. We had lunch and lots of catching up. The depth of respect and support for President Trump was overwhelming, even among the younger veterans.

I must have shaken hands with several hundred fellow supporters and collected a few dozen business cards. Thanks to Lisa Vranicar-Patton for the invitation and the hard work she is doing to promote a fellow veteran Paul Mango for Governor of Pennsylvania. It all starts with the state governments. Brandon Rumbaugh is a fellow wounded veteran working to get Paul Mango elected as well. Brandon is a great guy too. If you ever get a chance to meet him you will likely be able to say you “knew him when..”

Also got to meet a man I have admired for a long time who ironically shares the same name. He’s the famous one! Smart, humble, articulate and straight to the point, Rep Mike Kelly. If you do not know Mike Kelly you should. A great American!

President Trump first did an interview with Sean Hannity at one end of the hanger and then came to center state to talk about tax reform and honor our great trucking industry.

One of my new friends Sal Santori with local CBS 21 reporter Robb Hanrahan. Sal runs an internet radio veteran-centric talk show through his facebook and live streaming along with the Kay Zern Veterans Outreach Program. Maybe we can use this platform to help support one another nationwide and help get Paul Mango elected Governor of Pennsylvania. Let hope!

There were around a thousand people present by invitation. It was an honor to be among those invited.

Many in attendance were veterans.

Got an invitation to this event yesterday while I was in North Carolina. I drove all day yesterday to get back to PA to attend I also found out Sean Hannity will be there at some point. It should be a great time. Hearing that Sean was going to be there reminded me of the kick off of Vets for Trump. If you all remember it was Tony Porta who got on stage with Hannity and then-candidate Trump.

I just spoke with a friend of Tony’s and he had a baby girl a few months ago. Last I knew Tony was not doing well and could not respond to emails or text messages due to his eye problems. I am humbled by the fact that the messaging fell to me. I do not pretend to be an elected leader. I simply realized that in the vacuum left by Tony’s absence someone had to step up.

Say prayers for Tony and pray that I might get to talk to our President with Sean. It is a long shot but who knows? We need to first thank President Trump for all he has done. He is a man of his word when it comes to veterans. We must also continue to defend our President and prepare for a second term if he chooses to run.

Leave a comment if you think of any main points I should mention. This is all on the off chance I am able to get time with the President.

The Big Story on the Economy and President Trump

The Big Story on the Economy and President Trump

There has been a lot going on since President Trump took office. Few if any have taken notice for a multitude of reasons. There is the hysterical Left followed by the mainstream media and their Russia collusion investigation (fake news), missiles launched into Syria, Mother of All Bombs dropped in Afghanistan, Rocket Man (Madman)  in North Korea, 3 devastating hurricanes and the mass killing in Las Vegas, the list goes on and on.

Any of these things would have normally sent our stock market into a decline. That has not happened. The stock market is up during all these disasters.  Things that usually shake the markets are having little impact. Why? I am not an economist but I have a logical mind. The simple answer is confidence. Confidence in what? President Trump! The Make America Great Again slogan has shown itself to be one of the most powerful messages in political history.

Gross Domestic Product was revised up to 3.1%. That has not been seen since 2005. The unemployment rate continues to drop to all-time lows. Consumer confidence is also at a record high with a slight downturn after the 3 hurricanes affected large numbers of people. Nevertheless, it is way up since the election. Approval rates be damned. Consumers, the market, and unemployment are all indication of faith in leadership. I have found that even people who say they disapprove of the President have faith things are improving. You can dislike the messenger and like the message. The two are not mutually exclusive. Me, I’m a substance over style kind of guy and in the long run I think most of us are.

So, while the left has their hissy fit and the media plays along, everyday Americans are doing much better. You may recall that Hillary Clinton was the darling of Wall Street. They donated to her campaign like never before. Even now they must be asking themselves why?

For all those who want to continue to bash our President, I make this prediction. (I’m not much for predictions.) If by 2020 the economy is doing well and our security is stable we will have a second term of President Trump. That is if he is willing to do it for a second term. Veterans for Trump hopes he will be willing and able!

PS If Russia colluded with President Trump (ridiculous) to undermine America they made a HUGE mistake. Maybe the left should wake up and smell the coffee.

The Gun Debate

The Gun Debate

Like everyone, my heart goes out to the families of those who lost loved ones in Las Vegas as well as to those who were wounded. We still do not know the motivation of the shooter and I do not care to speculate. However, the left has started down the road of gun control and that causes me to want to respond.

Why is it we don’t normally have mass shootings inside military bases in war zones where everyone is armed? Why is it we don’t have mass shootings among police officers? Why is it we do not have mass shootings at gun ranges or anywhere there is a high concentration of weapons? Could it be it is a cultural difference?

There will always be insanity. A free society can never stop all violence but let’s not put our heads in the sand. We do need to do a better job of dealing with mental illness. We do need to do a better job of teaching our children right from wrong. The shootings in Chicago on a monthly basis should be enough to cause us to question if something is wrong with our cultural views of tolerance.

A headline on the Daily Wire caught my attention.

GUN CONTROL? The Las Vegas Death Toll Happens Every MONTH In Chicago

I personally believe a permissive culture and society is partly (keyword partly) to blame. I’m nearly 60 and I’ve seen quite a shift in my life. When I was young things seemed a bit stricter and “less tolerant” than they are today. Maybe we should be a less tolerant society. There is a theory that states if a society tolerates everything then it will be ruled by the intolerant. It is something I believe worth thinking about as we move forward to discuss violence in our society.

Click here to read about the Tolerance Paradox. Very interesting. However, it is a double-edged sword. Who is the final arbiter of tolerance? These will be difficult discussions. Our society is split on things that once were so basic like the Judeo-Christian ethic. Even that phrase has become a political football.

The bottom line: Maybe gun violence has less to do with guns than it does with our culture. Otherwise, you would see this kind of thing happen more frequently on military bases overseas where everyone is armed. Just a thought from a fellow veteran. Comments are welcome.

Some Interesting Statistics – Peter Kirsanow – Black Attorney on Police Shootings & More

Some Interesting Statistics – Peter Kirsanow – Black Attorney on Police Shootings & More

Apologies, this post went out before it was completed.  If you subscribed by email you received an incorrect draft version. The old clicky finger pressed the wrong button.

The uproar over police and the NFL is a very emotional issue for both sides of the debate. If you are very emotional you may want to brace yourself before reading and watching the video in this post. I should first emphasize that nobody in their right mind is saying racism does not exist. That includes white, black and other racial groups of police officers. Add to that there are plainly bad police officers that are not motivated by racism. When I was young I watched a police officer stand by while a young girl was smacked around by a children’s home administrator. I also witnessed a police officer bash my own brother in the mouth with a large flashlight for no apparent reason. That was back in the 1970’s and I doubt things have changed much.

I should first emphasize that nobody in their right mind is saying racism does not exist. That includes white, black and other racial groups of police officers. Add to that there are plainly bad police officers that are not motivated by racism. Later in life, I got to know three police officers very well on a personal level. They were all three great guys! No, all police officers are not racist or bad. The vast majority are outstanding people. I would not want to be one. The abuse and danger they face every day is not something many people would want.

Our experience with the police is very subjective. Maybe you have been pulled over for speeding or worse. Maybe you have been in trouble and needed the help of the police. Our subjective experience with the police is not an indication of the facts. As a friend of mine likes to say, “nothing matters until it becomes personal.” We tend to focus on the subjective things rather than the objective truth.

One of the principles of our country is freedom and justice for all. This is a goal but is not 100% achievable. It is something we need to remain focused on and ever vigilant to correct when we see it going astray. By and large, the military and police are given the charge of defending people from oppression and injustice. I would not stand by and watch someone treated unfairly if it was in my power to prevent it. I do not tolerate racist people in my personal life. Happily I only ever met two that I can recall. That is not many since I worked with hundreds if not thousands of people in my 60 years.

The below YouTube segment of Peter Kirsanow on Tucker Carlson is probably the most important news segment of this decade. Peter mentions subjective and objective truth. I love that! You are more likely to be killed by a black police officer if you are black. If the proportion of violent crime committed by a certain race was equal then many, many more blacks would be killed by police. Peter also explains why you are more likely to be suspected of a crime by police if you are black while admitting that in a nation of 300 plus million people there will be racists. I add there will be racists in all racial groups. I don’t like it and would not personally stand for a racist acting that way in my presence. However, I understand things better now.

Before someone questions this black attorney’s statistics take a look at the statistics for 2013 in NYC below.

Last year, 97% of all shooting victims were black or Hispanic and reside in low-income neighborhoods, – Read full story

Here are the murder and manslaughter rates for NYC for 2016. Sadly, the stats are not much different. Note: The rape and other sex crime stats are about the same percentage. Click here for the full report.

The stats remain about the same for 2008 thru 2016. Click here to see links to each year directly from the NYPD.

Of course, racism exists but it pales in comparison to black on black crime. Before we blame poverty we need to ask, why is it more white people live in poverty but do not commit the same proportional violent crimes by percentage? If racism is the reason for black people getting shot by police, why is it a higher percentage of black police officers shoot black suspects? These are serious questions for black people to talk about with each other.

 

I’m sorry, being a Steelers fan all my life

I’m sorry, being a Steelers fan all my life

This is copied from a Facebook post by James Raifsnider. I thought it worth posting. I especially like Jim’s final statement:

With every like and every share, they will only be counted as a proudly extended middle finger to anyone who disrespects our great flag, anthem, great Nation, and the fallen who have given their lives building and protecting Her.

I’m sorry, being a Steelers fan all my life, I am beyond ashamed and disgusted at my (former) team. Deciding to hide in the locker room, disguised as not wanting to make a statement, or get involved in the conflict, still made a statement that dishonored our flag and anthem. One brave player stands up for his rights, then gets pressured to apologize for his actions? He apologizes for honoring his flag and Country?

At the heart of this issue is Liberalism. It destroys everything it touches. As players are screaming for “unity”, you need to understand they are not asking for unity, they are asking you to agree and unify with them, not find common ground and come together. They are asking you to identify with and hold the same beliefs as they do.

The NFL is asking you to agree that Police are murderous thugs. They are not. Brave men and women are gunned down in cold blood in Dallas, and the NFL says no to honoring the fallen. They clearly do not want a narrative that says Police are a vital part of any society to catch fire.

Liberalism asks you to ignore that one of the highest crime demographics is Black on Black crime. They ask you to ignore that Black fetuses are aborted more than others.

They are asking you to believe that black people are marginalized, and will never get ahead. Never mind the fact that we have had a Black President, a Black First Lady, a Black Secretary of State, Black Congressmen and Black Congresswomen, Black Senators, Black Governors, Black Mayors, Black Surgeons, Black Sports Stars, Black Movie Stars etc….yet they continue asking you to ignore the facts, and only support the narrative that they define, or else you are a racist. This all has been in a Country that they call oppressive?

Liberalism is to blame. This same liberal logic that demanded government involvement to change the name of the Redskins, now says Trump should keep his mouth shut when commenting about honoring our flag and Country.

The sooner you realize that Liberalism is driven by hatred for everything and anyone who has made this country great, the sooner you will understand what is going on here.

NFL, you poked at us, now you get the response of those who know the value of our great Country.

With every like and every share, they will only be counted as a proudly extended middle finger to anyone who disrespects our great flag, anthem, great Nation, and the fallen who have given their lives building and protecting Her.

NFL No Future Left

Not Jim’s image. Just thought it would be appropriate

Kneeling and the NFL

Kneeling and the NFL

U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Tiffany Robinson, assigned to 449th Air Expeditionary Group, kneels in front of a battlefield cross following a Memorial Day ceremony at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, May 26, 2014. The cross was created with combat gear representing each of the five U.S. military branches, in commemoration of fallen service members. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Eric R. Dietrich/Released)

In most cases, kneeling is a sign of submission, humility, and reverence. Less common reasons are fatigue, crawling, and some others. When I see a sports person kneeling during the National Anthem all I can think is it is for one of the first three reasons. They are not fatigued or crawling. Could it be the case the people kneeling are so humbled by their freedom they can’t stand? No, but that is how we might want to start viewing it and even promoting it. If we keep pointing this out maybe, just maybe, we can change the narrative.

If we would have started out by ignoring what players were saying and pointing out how humbled they must be to live in America it could have nipped this in the bud.

Not So Crazy After All

Not So Crazy After All

Just a real quick post. Apparently, President Trump is or was not so crazy by saying he was wiretapped by the Obama administration. At the end of this short article Clapper is quoted as saying “I wouldn’t want to go there, but I will say it’s possible,” Clapper said.

I’m the kind of person who asks questions. Lots of them. The first thing I ask is why Clapper would say that? Why would he not want to go there? Is it because he knows it is true but can’t admit it? Does he mean he would not want to assert that it is true but just possible? This is one of those obfuscations politicians and deep state people are known for. He knows darn well what it means to America. It means President Trump is telling the truth and the Obama Administration are lying through their teeth.

On another note, who is Samantha Power to make over 200 unmasking requests?

Three of the nation’s intelligence agencies received subpoenas in May explicitly naming three top Obama administration officials: Former national security adviser Susan Rice, Brennan and Power. Records were requested for Ben Rhodes, then-President Barack Obama’s adviser, but the documents were not the subject of a subpoena.

According to the article, Samantha Power also had a seat on the National Security Council under President Obama. I can see having a seat but NOT have authority to make unmasking requests. If she really needed to know something why not have her go to a member of the National Security Council with that specific authority. Just doesn’t make sense to me.

MY GOD!! Is this what we have come to? It appears to me we have a fabricated political move that is worse than Watergate. It is about time we put this whole Russia thing to rest and start investigating the previous administration.

We veterans are going to vote for President Trump again in 2020 if he runs. I will also bet a lot of Americans will do so simply because they have had enough of the Left trying to take over America.
