Mugging Taxpayers in the Swamp


The big dollar muggings in Washington these days are not done with pistols. The sophisticated weapons of choice are “sole source contracting,” lobbyists, and insiders. And the victims are not tourists, but taxpayers.

Large multinationals game the system using the revolving door between government and the private sector, with the help of aggressive lobbying. There are so many examples, but one is the fourth largest privately- owned company in the United States, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, which originated as one of the biggest accounting companies in America.

Federal contracting is big business, governed by dozens of federal statutes enacted by Congress, explained in dozens of legal volumes that can be found in every law library across the nation. Federal policy as provided in that governing law is based on the concept of “competitive bidding,” because as the most rudimentary economics shows, better results in terms of price and quality are obtained by competition rather than by monopoly.

But if a company is a crony favored by contacts, friends, or relatives of company employees, or of lobbyists working for the company, that company can get “sole-source contracts” or even sole source grants, not subject to any competition. The money flows just when the contact, friend or relative working inside of some contracting government agency signs on the dotted line, giving away some share of the federal government’s trillions in annual spending.

Frau Merkel: Nation States MUST “Give Up Sovereignty” to New World Order


Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.
Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.

Her words echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”

Democrats: A plague on the nation

These people, these Democrats in Congress, are among the most privileged persons on the planet. They have enjoyed, more than most, the blessings bequeathed by the Founders, the authors of the Constitution. Yet they are determined, like Obama, to transform us into something this nation was never meant to be: a land without borders. While all of them are on record supporting a border wall in the past, now that Donald Trump is president, they all oppose it with every fiber of their being. They know that it will work, and they cannot abide Trump having a win.
They cheated in 2016 and are still stunned that their carefully calculated strategy did not work – thus, the cover-up, AKA the Mueller investigation, of their many crimes committed over the Obama years, many at the direction of Hillary Clinton with Obama’s knowledge and approval. Our once most revered institutions, the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, have been thoroughly corrupted. Mueller, a willing participant in that corruption, is up to his eyeballs in the cover-up.

Will any of these people at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, ever be held accountable? To date, they have not been. The power they have within the Deep State is beyond formidable; it is seemingly absolute.

The Democratic Party of today is an abomination. The assault on our constitutional republic began with Woodrow Wilson, and their long-range plan to overhaul what the Founders built is still operational. The left has nothing but contempt for ordinary Americans, especially those who voted for Trump.

Leftists are dangerous when challenged, like a pack of jackals dismembering its prey. They need to be defeated, indicted, arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned. They are a scourge on the nation as founded. They do not love this country; they seek to destroy all that was and is good within it.

Never Say Never

Tomorrow is the end of the year. It would be a fitting time to also be the end of my posting here.The entire American political situation is a farce,albeit a tragic one on the people who hold our rights as a sovereign nation sacred.Donald J. Trump is a generational figure we may not see twice in a lifetime.He stands firm in the face of scurrilous attacks on his character,outrageous verbal assaults on his wife and children and his supporters suffer mindless violence just because some sick animals feel like hurting somebody.He has borne more lies,slander and defamation than any president ever has or likely will have. All because he won an election that was completely rigged for Hillary Clinton.
He’ll fight hard;that’s just how he is.He gave up an idyllic lifestyle as a billionaire reality TV star to withstand the savagery of a cabal of hate mongering pricks who want to destroy him.They may get him in 2020,it may take until 2024 but they will get him.There will be no one after him with the balls to stand up to a fraction of what he’s been made to put up with.
At that point they will be free to set about their scheme for a One World government with the united Nations being the arbiter of all things.I just can’t continue to read and report on the screaming banshee Nasty Pelousy and her equally deranged cohorts trying to make each day a living hell for Donald Trump.The media will never relent. He’ll get credit for nothing and blame for everything. We know it’s all bullshit but it’s not aimed at us. It’s aimed at the single digit I.Q. thumbsuckers and bedwetters who want to believe the worst at all times.They all want blood but they can’t explain why.
There may be a time when I have the will to take part in the discussion that comes to no resolution. one must never say “never”.

OH NOES THE SHUTDOWN: President Trump canceled his Christmas trip to Mar-a-Lago to work during the shutdown, but Pelosi jet-setted to Hawaii while 800,000 government employees are currently not working. Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters was spotted partying in the Bahamas. Democrats are blaming President Trump for the shutdown, saying he’s acting like a spoiled child. But when he offered a compromise, they turned him down flat.

RUH ROH: President Donald Trump on Friday issued an executive order which would halt a planned 2.1 percent pay increase for federal government workers, something that is done automatically. Currently, about 800,000 federal employees are on furlough or working without pay because of the partial government shutdown. The only workers who are exempt from the blanket order are members of the military who are scheduled to receive a 2.6 percent pay raise

TRIP WAS UNANNOUNCED: Why would you want to tell the enemy that POTUS is coming?Former Secret Service agent, Dan Bongino, says, “Dear Libs, Presidential trips to conflict zones are NOT scheduled days in advance. They’re scheduled weeks in advance with advance teams on the ground up to 1-2 weeks prior. Your dopey suggestion that Trump took this Iraq trip in response to your criticisms this week is just dumb.”

ACOSTA’S TAKE: “O.M.G. Trump signed hats!” — The reality: Troops cheered Trump. Wildly. And the hats? They belonged to the soldiers who ASKED him to sign. Not like Obama, who had free cameras distributed to the troops he deigned to visit AND who handed out White House challenge coins to soldiers while he was actively campaigning.

COP KILLER ARRESTED: He’s a known gang member — Police have arrested the illegal suspected of murdering California Police Corporal Ronil Singh. Word has it that the shooting happened when Singh stopped the thug on a suspected DUI. Wait, wut?

DEMS SUCK: A majority of the Democrats in Congress tweeted about the recent and unavoidable deaths of two children while in Border Patrol custody. Not one of them tweeted about the vicious murder of a California police officer by an illegal with known gang affiliation.

SHERIFFS WANT THE WALL: A group of sheriffs from around the country recently called on Congress to pass at least $5 billion toward building a wall along the 2,000-mile southwest border. —

The No. 1 issue facing all Americans, I don’t care who you ask, is the heroin epidemic that affects us all. And the Mexican drug-trafficking cartels dominate that industry and they’re controlling it coming into and throughout the United States. … I’m tired of dealing with overdoses. I’m tired of dealing with violent crime. I’m tired of dealing with human trafficking. … We’re making arrests all the time, but they keep coming and they keep coming because our borders are wide open.”

VIDEO: Language warning! — It seems like this stuff keeps happening, yet I cannot remember even a single instance of a right-winger insulting, refusing service, or oughtright assaulting ANYone who was wearing an Obama t-shirt or hat. Can any of you? Yet WE’RE THE HATERS?! I. Don’t. Think. So.

CLIMATE HYPOCRISY: “Do as we say, not as we do” The New York Times published an editorial Wednesday lamenting President Donald Trump’s reversal of Obama-era climate policies. The New York Times flew wealthy readers around the world in a private jet for $135,000 a piece.

REALLY FAKE NEWS: The German weekly Der Spiegel, one of the top-selling publications in Europe, is reeling from a scandal that revealed that star reporter, Claas Relotius, has been making up his “news” stories for years.

GOOD RIDDANCE: An abortuary with multiple health code violations is now closed — Whole Woman’s Health of San Antonio, which was aborting unborn babies up to 17.6 weeks, was part of a larger Texas-based abortion chain that has amassed dozens of health and safety violations at its facilities. In 2012, they were caught illegally dumping aborted babies’ body parts. In 2013, they were cited for dozens of health violations, including problems with the sterilization of abortion instruments, lack of an RN or LVN on staff, rusty suction machines and expired and unlabeled medications. In 2017, they were cited for the same problems, including reusing instruments on multiple women without sterilizing and disinfecting them in between.

PROGRESSIVE ECONOMICS: New York’s Mayor Bill De Blasio urged New Yorkers not to patronize a Chick-fil-A that opened up in the city, but he’s going to hire people to pick up dirty needles that junkies leave lying around. Cuz golly gee whiz, those people who have just shot themselves full of whatever crap they use to avoid living in the real world rudely leave their used equipment on the ground rather than carrying it to the handy needle disposal bins the city’s tax payers provided for them. Who woulda thunk?

PROGRESSIVE EATING: How do you know someone’s a vegan? — Just wait two minutes and they’ll tell you. But hey, it turns out you can’t be white AND a woke vegan, because Americans are neocolonialist tools who have destroyed the diets of the native peoples who used to be able to afford tofu and quinoa. Or something.

I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP: Organizers of the Women’s March in Humboldt County, California, announced Friday that they have canceled the local Jan. 19 event because the marchers are overwhelmingly white.

WAIT, WUT?: On September 20, 2016, Kellogg Community College in Michigan arrested three people for handing out copies of the Constitution on campus. Yes, you read that right…the Constitution, the very document that protects free speech. Only now, a year and four months after the arrests and after a full year of litigation, has KCC finally be forced by the court to change its ridiculous speech policy.

NO, NO, AND NO: California is about to implement new sex education lessons that promote abortion and homosexuality. At least one school district has told parents they will NOT be allowed to opt out of having their children attend.

DO BRAIN WORK FIRST THING: According to psychologist Ron Friedman, the first three hours of your day are your most precious for maximized productivity.  “Typically, we have a window of about three hours where we’re really, really focused. We’re able to have some strong contributions in terms of planning, in terms of thinking, in terms of speaking well.”

I’M NOT THE WORST MOTHER IN THE WORLD AFTER ALL: I used to tell my kids I was whenever they complained about my rules — Alissa Evans, 9, had complained that her advent calendar chocolates tasted funny but her mother, Jess Evans, assumed she was just being picky so Alissa ate the candy each day … for ELEVEN days. Then Mommy Dearest read the front “Advent calendar for cats with Yogurt and Catnip Flavour Treats.” Whoops! But wait … an Advent calendar for cats?
