Elitist Leftist Will Destroy America


The elitists who lead the far left and other dedicated followers by the nose promising that they will feel great about themselves and have great feelings of self worth and superior morality will never destroy the United States, they will just destroy America making it simply the U. S. and never again the U.S.A. The main difference is the form of government and how it is chosen and allowed to govern. America is a bottom up system where the majority of powers are at the town, city, county and district level and the least power over the people’s lives is in Washington D.C. This brings the power closer to the people and allows for ever solution to represent the people over which it will be utilized. The elitist leftists desire that their infinite wisdom over how everyone must live their lives believe in a top down system where by the time you get to local government, their only job is to follow orders and implement what Washington D.C. has dictated to them through the State governments. These are the people who control the Deep State and who have been running the Federal Government since President Lyndon Baines Johnson used the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to pass the most massive alteration of power and society since President Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the New Deal, thus President Johnson naming his legislative behemoth the Great Society was quite apropos. From that point forward, every ensuing government, whether Democrat or Republican, placed additional power into the Federal Government and the inside tracks were controlled by top level Civil Servants who were immune from being fired and whose lease on power dates back to those initially hired top people under President Johnson. When President Jimmy Carter opened the Federal Department of Education, he chose the top people, all progressives. President Ronal Reagan arrived; he attempted to scale government back, so this champion of the people who wished to empower them did nothing to change the power structure of the bureaucracy. The following Presidents Bush-Clinton-Bush were all big government progressives and only built additional layers with the same people at the top running the now almost all powering Deep State and the plan was all but complete. All that was required was for certain departments to be flushed with cash such that their budgets would almost double. This was accomplished by the first three years of President Obama and then his remaining five years were used to allow these new levels of government funding to become normal all while claiming to have capped spending. It is easy to cap spending after almost doubling the debt and the size of funding initially.


Deep State

Deep State


This finished the construction of the behemoth we call the Deep State and unless Congress will allow President Donald Trump to fire civil service workers, the Deep State will easily survive his time in office and all that he cuts can be reinstated by the next progressive, be they Republican or Democrat, to take the White House. Some of you are demanding that we name any Republicans who would be almost as horrible, as the most leftist Democrat such as Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton from wherever, and Nancy Pelosi of California. Well, why not try Jeb Bush of Florida, Mitt Romney formerly of Massachusetts now from Utah, Marco Rubio also from Florida and a host of other establishment Republicans. The Republican Party standard is currently that they are somewhat less progressive than the Democrats. President Trump is an outlier who did not pass through the political grinding mechanisms which turn once proud individualist powering the people leaders such as Jim Bridenstine from Oklahoma’s First District who will not be in Congress long as he proved resistant to the reshaping mechanisms by which such great leaders are made from men to mice, so Jim Bridenstine has instead been nominated to head up NASA, a dream of his that he cannot resist. Those they cannot make mad, they transfer out. President Trump is an anti-progressive but unless permitted to fire top civil servants, all the trimming he does will be for naught. The people at the top promote like-minded people such that the system cannot be changed and it will always keep its elitist leftist outlook led by elites hand chosen from within by the former elites. That is the horror of the Deep State, it is self perpetuating unless a President with the gumption to take them on is provided the weapons to do just that, and that would require making some alterations to the Civil Service and allow the President to fire civil servants, specifically those above grade level twelve, in other words, the leaders and the head of the beast. The only other means would be to start chopping off entire departments starting with Education and working oneself back to the original sized Cabinet that President George Washington started with, namely the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of War (Defense Department). Just rid the Administration of all the rest of the fat and then trim these departments down to essential personnel and pick those top positions and make the best of it.


Instead of three departments, the current Administrative Departments number over or around twenty, and they are Executive Office of the President, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of the Treasury, Department of Immigration and Department of Veterans Affairs. We likely missed one or two but this is sufficient to show the growth since the start of the United States of America and how the America is being lopped-off. There is apparently at least one department covering virtually every aspect of life and through which these areas are outside of the people’s control. What makes matters even more serious is that the Congress no longer sets policy nor do they craft real laws. The legislation passed by the Congress and signed by Presidents lays out the results they desire and then leaves the nuts and bolts for enacting these results to the various Secretaries of Departments they view as required to establish the needed filler and often they end the bills with a small aside allowing for the inclusion of all other departments determined to be needed to comply with the aims of this legislation. That is card-blanche for permitting these pieces of legislation to be passed through every department with each permitted to write regulations, which are enforced as if they were laws, which they feel they need and can claim are attached to accomplishing the aims of the legislation. That is right, the Deep State writes the particulars and actual enforceable parts to the legislation as they see fit. This means that the Deep State actually defines the laws of the land to fit their desires and not those of the President or the Congress who only get to suggest ideas, not enact them. All of the Deep State could be avoided if the Congress would actually write the entirety of the laws and not leave anything up for determination by the Deep State thus cutting them out of the process. The only other means is to have a Constitutional Amendment requiring for Congress to vote on each regulation and the President to sign them before they are enacted. Such an amendment will never come through the Congress, as they really prefer not to have to think or actually work. The unfortunate reality is the United States is ruled by the Deep State and until the entirety of the government in Washington D.C. is dismantled, everybody fired, and started over, preferably with just five departments, State, Treasury, Defense (the original three), Judicial, Transportation, Import-Export (instead of Commerce) and Border Security (replacing Homeland Security, Immigration). Make it that no new departments can be formed without the agreement by three-quarters of the states which must be acquired within ten years of the initial petition with no extensions permitted.


The Deep State was something designed by the political elite from probably the brain trust of President Kennedy and the Great Society designed by President Johnson. The reality is it might actually for back to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt with his New Deal or even to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson, the trio who make up the start of the progressive movement in the United States and the eventual end of America. The whole idea behind progressivism is that there exist within a society a group of highly educated, supremely intelligent and very self-assured individuals who know better how you should live your life than do you. Thus, these individuals are placed atop the society, ensconced within the government in positions of great power but untouchable and secured in their post such that they actually decide the rules and laws, not the elected officials such as the Congress and President as they are chosen by the rabble. These elites who run a bureaucracy which makes the actual applied laws also builds a structure so enormous and inefficient that it becomes impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff and thus they become secured atop a tangled menagerie of which no single human being can begin to understand the scope nor unravel the tangled array they find before them. In the end, and President Trump may end up realizing this before he actually does any damage to the real power holders, these elites choose their own replacements and lay just outside the reach of crusading politicians who promise to end the Deep State. This is how the United States will be run, as there are no people willing to brave the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune which they would face if they even began to touch the Deep State power structure. The war has been lost and America has fallen and President Trump might be capable of saving her and restoring the United States of America, but he had better hurry, as time is a wasting. The Deep State is thus far winning in this epic battle but one thing we have seen is never underestimate the Donald, he might slay the beast yet, though we predict it would take a general uprising to reform the government now. We hope America survives as the United States without America is more to be feared than admired and America is more than simply worth saving, America is crucial to saving for the United States to be prevented from slipping to the “Dark Side of the Force.”


There is one last item, speech codes. Should hate speech legislation ever reach the claws of the Deep State, the war will be lost or need to go underground and be taken-on at great risk. Hate Speech Codes will prevent real discussion as only those terminologies approved by the Deep State will be permitted. It will be the Orwellian Newspeak from that point forward where words will start to disappear. There will be specific Deep State friendly language with which one may refer to ideas and some ideas will be taken from language. Freedom will mean slavery to the system, War will mean peace, and Ignorance will mean strength with other words also being redefined. Choice will mean obedience and Joy will mean compliance and such redefining of terminology. Nothing will remain of America once hate speech restrictions become law and part of the tangled web called regulations. Everyone will be required to check the new dictionary which will be on the Internet and the list of permitted words will grow smaller and the meanings more removed from what the old people remember. Already, in many schools there is no such thing as an individual grade as now everything is done in groups where the smartest children are spread around so every group has at least one and the group gets a group grade. This means that the smartest children will work and achieve a high grade for them and for every member of their group including the least gifted student in the class. This new theory for education is how everybody passes with a similar grade. This is being carried over into employers where everything becomes a team project where the great and the small are melded into a single entity and all rise and fall together. Refuse to work in the group, then you do not work period. And this system will be so ingrained from school that nobody will think this is strange or weird, working alone will be the odd idea. Newspeak and Newthink will rule in this coming world unless the people rise up and demand their control back and the system be rebooted from an original disk where only that utterly necessary to act according to the Constitution is retained and the rest of big government Deep State is broken up and distributed back to the states and down to the local elected board.


The measuring stick for the retooling of the government, it is right there in the Bill of Rights in Amendment X,

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.


Unless the Constitution assigns a power to the Federal Government or specifically denies it to the individual states, then it belongs under State Rights to the individual States or, preferably, to the people themselves. That is the meaning, that the power belongs with the people and they allow certain items, particular items, to pass to the local government. The local government then can ask the next higher form of governance to take certain defined responsibilities. This eventually gives the individual states their areas and those beyond their means such as defending the country; these and only these are granted to the government in Washington D.C. The Congress and the President are only permitted the powers granted them by the Constitution or passed to them by the individual states. The states get their power from the lower governments who get their power from the people. If the people have not relinquished their power in an area, then the Federal Government has absolutely no right to administrate, regulate, or pass laws concerning that right. The power of the people is presumed absolute and that is the magic which defines America. We have no idea what defines the United States except it is not empowering the people, rather it is enslaving the individuality of the people, and that is going way too far.

A Walking Wrecking Ball and the Media


The media is completely flummoxed as to what to do about the situation they find the United States to be in currently. They simply are finding the situation improbable, intolerable even, as despite their reporting of all the sins and indiscretions of the President, he is still walking free laying waste to the left at every turn. Their walk through the mystery tour started with the Republican primaries and the first Republican debate. The media scorned and cast him as uncouth, foul mouthed, disrespectful and unworthy of the office of the President. Still, the main label of the night was “Low Energy Jeb,” a name that was echoed by Jeb Bush’s performance. Within the week, Jeb Bush was out of the race. The media continued to castigate him at every opportunity and Donald Trump used their coverage to continue to rename his opponents with the names Trump gave them. There was Little Marco, Lyin’ Ted, 1 for 38 Kasich and whatever caught the attention when repeated by the media. Of course, the media repeated these names as they would hurt Republicans and Donald Trump counted on that. Then on the campaign, he used Lyin Hillary and Crooked Hillary and similar names and used Twitter to spread his campaign. The media tried to make Trump appear to be the one to lose the election big time to depress his voters. If anything, it resulted in suppressing the Hillary Clinton voters. Whatever the media effect, it resulted in the one result they could not understand or even contemplate, President Donald Trump. Not only had their misrepresenting the news and attempts at manipulating the entire campaign season backfired and placed a Republican in the White House, it had placed the man they hated most, the man they loathed and the most uncouth of the candidates according to everything they had claimed. Now they are left dealing with what they wrought.


Now the media is facing an ever worse case scenario. Their efforts to paint Donald Trump as corrupt and Russians under the direction of Vladimir Putin interfering with the election assisting Trump being elected is blowing up in their faces. Currently it is starting to appear as if the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice are being dragged down as interfering with the election and working with the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee in efforts to pin Trump and Russia into a frame over some form of conspiracy. But it gets worse for the media as they are beginning to be linked and made complicit in slanting their reporting to assist these efforts. Everything that Donald Trump touches results in some new and additional defeat for the media and the Democrats and a fair number of the Republican establishment. The one thing which appears to be most valid is that wherever Trump treads, the establishment trembles. It matters little which establishment, the Bushes, the Clintons, the Never-Trump Republicans, the elites of the Democrat and Republican Parties, the elite media and now we are on the verge of watching the downfall of the Deep State. What will inevitably be referred to as Memogate, everything has to be something-gate since Watergate, we are going to likely witness an ever-widening conspiracy which will also include the State Department and, from there, who knows where it is going to lead. There are already claims that President Obama may also be drawn into the dragnet being cast and harvesting those who combined to attempt and actually manipulate the election for Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump. But there will be some repercussions which will be of potential for great service for the American people if President Trump can manage to accomplish changing one law which has fed the size of government allowing it to become cumbersome and inefficient.


President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State

President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State


There are rumors, welcome rumors, that President Trump would like to allow for supervisors within the government to be able to give raises on merit while being permitted to cut those whose performance is less than acceptable. Currently, once a Civil Service employee attains permanent status, they become immune to being fired. Another problem in the Federal Government is nepotism. Parents get their children hired onto the government payroll, often in their same department where they are friends and even the supervisor of their newly hired child’s boss which assures they will reach the point after which they become permanent and no longer able to be fired. Needless to point out, when the employees reach permanent status they are no longer required to provide any real service or performance. This leads to the government often needing to hire two, three, four or even more people to produce the work which in the real world, as the non-government employment is referred, would require one efficient and capable worker. This is part of what has led to the rumors and theories as to why the government is so inefficient and bloated with so many workers who accomplish little to nothing, or at least far less than a company outside the government accomplishes with less than half the employees. Trump wants to end the Civil Service immunity to being terminated and return the government to a situation where the workers are held responsible for their own performance. The question will be what to do when you have supervisors protecting lower level supervisors who protect all their employees. There is but one means by which President Trump will ever be capable of reigning in the Deep State, a complete hiring freeze with outside performance reviews deciding which workers are not performing up to a normal expected level. Nothing short of being put on a forced diet can take the bloated monster ensconced in Washington D.C., West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia and across the fruited plains and along the shores and purple mountains majesty and every other nick, cranny and corner of the United States down to something manageable or reasonable facsimile thereof.


President Trump has chosen his enemies well and they have decided to take up that role with great zest and enthusiasm, especially the media thus far. Expect the Deep State to work to foil every last piece of the President’s agenda. Between the Democrat Party deciding that they will vote against everything acting as total obstructionists bringing the government to a standstill until they get in power again and the Never-Trump Republicans such as Flake and McCain and company, President Trump may need to wait until after the 2018 midterm elections and hope that he breaks with all traditions and comes away with over sixty Senators who are willing to support his agenda and a majority retained in the House of Representatives. Without this advantage, President Trump will have great difficulty in getting his agenda past the Congress. What will probably frustrate the liberal and leftist media and the Democrats along with the Never-Trump Republicans is that the decision as to whether President Trump manages to get much if not all of his agenda through the Congress and enacted and wins his fight against the Deep State will not fall to any of them but to the American People. The midterm election will be the first step followed by whether or not President Trump is reelected along with the makeup of the Congress and then the final midterm election which would be his final chance.


There is one last item which should be discussed briefly and we will try to be succinct. The Democrats have decided some time back that they are the sole people who can be trusted with the power to decide the national agenda. They will do everything within their power to prevent President Trump from accomplishing his agenda. They also are going to fight to attempt on retaining as much of President Obama’s accomplishments as they are able. They will obstruct voting with complete discipline acting as a single negative vote in both houses attempting to utilize the filibuster to end everything from passing the Senate. This is why President Trump will require a sixty vote super majority to get his policies passed through the Senate. The Democrat Party has adopted the policy approach which has been accepted by leftists throughout history very often right before they seize complete power and end elections or only hold show elections assuring they have fixed them such that they appear to have the flavor of fairness but are rigged to allow only Democrat Party rule. The Democrat Party has decided that they will be the only party permitted to decide policy, decide what requires financing, who is permitted to be elected to Congress and the White House, what is considered a fair election, and that they be permitted to go to whatever extent is required such that they retain their majorities and continue to hold the White House. They have reached the end of their rope and are no longer going to play fair. Actually, they have decided they are no longer going to play at all. We wish our American friends of all walks of life luck with holding on to the greatest governance ever devised by man. It has been quite saddening to watch as the great system has faltered and sputtered until it reached this point. We saw its first step when the Democrat and Republican opponents to our run for office both gave paid members of their campaigns to work to prevent us getting any traction which worked as we received 20% against the victor’s 42.2% and the other defeated candidate at 36.9%. What we never understood is how they could spend five million dollars in order to get a job which paid $275,000.00 a year for two years. At least we spent under $35,000.00 so at least had we won we would have shown a profit. But that is where politics has reached in America, spending five million dollars for five hundred fifty thousand in salary, which should make everybody pause as ask what is going on.

Representative Joseph Kennedy III Response with Our Commentary


Below is the text of Massachusetts Representative Joseph Kennedy III in his response to President Trump and the State of the Union Speech from the other night. We added some commentary which will be in Bold and Italicized for ease of seeing the difference. But first allow us to include video of President Trump’s State of the Union Address followed by video of Joseph Kennedy’s response.





Here is the Transcript of Representative Joseph Kennedy III Response to President Trump and the State of the Union Speech with Our Commentary.


Representative Joe Kennedy III from Massachusetts

Representative Joe Kennedy III from Massachusetts




Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

It is an absolute privilege to join you all tonight.

We are here in Fall River, Massachusetts, a proud American city. So far, so good.
An American city built by immigrants. If by this he means not Native Americans, we will not contest this supposition, otherwise, I am sure that most of the current building standing was built by American citizens or do we need to send ICE agents there immediately.

From textiles to robots, this is a place that knows how to make great things.
The students who are with us here this evening in the auto tech program at Diman Regional Technical School carry on that rich legacy. Diman Regional Technical School was exactly one of the types of programs President Trump stated we needed to build more such that our students who desire to learn a trade can do so and earn a respectable wage from respectable work.

Like many American hometowns, Fall River has faced its share of storms. But the people here are tough. They fight for each other. They pull for their city. It is a fitting place to gather as our nation reflects on the state of our union. We would bet that President Trump would be in complete agreement with this statement.

This is a difficult task. Many have spent the last year anxious, angry, afraid. We all feel the fractured fault lines across our country. We hear the voices of Americans who are forgotten and feel forsaken. Joseph Kennedy III has spent some time on social media and actually noted the #Revolution which has decided to scream bloody murder over every word out of the President’s mouth and even over words which did not come from the President’s mouth but somebody decided he might have thought them.

We see an economy that makes stocks soar, investor portfolios bulge, and corporate profits climb, but fails to give workers their fair share of the reward. I guess the bonuses and raises and prospective new hires which have been all over the media since the tax bill passed are to be left out of this consideration or are you simply making up your own facts? (see here, here, here, here, and here. A government that struggles to keep itself open. Which was because Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat and their leader in the Senate, refused to compromise and demanded that the President give him everything he desired pertaining to Immigration Laws while demanding the President accept nothing in return? Russia knee-deep in our democracy. An all-out war on environmental protection. What other people would call ending the all out war on coal and any form of energy based on carbon, which is all fossil fuels even including natural gas and an attempt to force renewable energy as the only form of energy. A Justice Department rolling back civil rights by the day. Hatred and supremacy proudly marching in our streets. The hatred and supremacy proudly marching in our streets have their origins and supporters across the political spectrum, both the extreme right as well as extreme leftists where the violence came from both sides. These displays were a sad note but also proof that the American Constitution protects all speech but does demand it be done peaceably which is where our law enforcement is supposed to intervene and keep opposing sides separated preventing the violence we saw. Bullets tearing through our classrooms, concerts, and congregations, targeting our safest, sacred places. We agree that we need solutions to the violence and especially politically motivated violence such as the shooting of the Representative Steve Scalise at a Congressional baseball practice.

And this nagging, sinking feeling, no matter your political beliefs, that this is not right. This is not who we are. We would love to agree with Joseph Kennedy on this but from the hate and spite we have witnessed on social media, that does appear it is far too many individuals happen to be and there are the haters on both sides of these arguments. Civility returning to the American debate would be much appreciated and a giant step towards healing the society.

Folks, it would be easy to dismiss this past year as chaos. Partisanship. As politics. But it’s far, far bigger than that. This administration isn’t just targeting the laws that protect us; they are targeting the very idea that we are all worthy of protection.
For them, dignity isn’t something you’re born with but something you measure, by your net worth, your celebrity, your headlines, your crowd size, not to mention the gender of your spouse, the country of your birth, the color of your skin, the God of your prayers.

Their record is a rebuke to our highest American ideal, the belief that we are all worthy, that we are all equal, that we all count, in the eyes of our law and our leaders, our God and our government. That is the American promise.

But today, ladies and gentlemen, today that promise is being broken by an administration that callously appraises our worthiness and decides who makes the cut and who can be bargained away. They are turning American life into a zero-sum game, where for one to win, another must lose, where we can guarantee America’s safety if we slash our safety net, where we can extend health care in Mississippi if we gut it in Massachusetts, we can cut taxes for corporations today if we raise them on families tomorrow, where we can take care of sick kids if we sacrifice Dreamers.

We are bombarded with one false choice after another: coal miners or single moms, rural communities or inner cities, the coast or the heartland. As if the mechanic in Pittsburgh, a teacher in Tulsa, and a daycare worker in Birmingham are bitter rivals rather than mutual casualties of a system forcefully rigged towards those at the top.

As if the parent who lies awake terrified that their transgender son or daughter will be beaten and bullied at school is any more or less legitimate than a parent whose heart is shattered by a daughter in the grips of an opioid addiction. Here we just had six paragraphs filled with hyperbole and distortions all targeted to make the base feel their grievances are fully justified and all their fears are as real and their suspicions that President Trump is attempting to radically reform their America so that just he and the wealthy, such as the Kennedy Family and all so many Democrats, are the only winners and that President Trump is demeaning some for the benefit of others and that this can be changed so that those who feel they are on the losing end of this game can be raised to the top and those at the top made to pay for their success. This is the same game which the left has played throughout history taking those who feel slighted and using them to overturn the governance and take control of government and taking from the wealthy and giving to the government who then doles out paltry gifts and continues blaming the targeted groups until everybody has nothing and the government is twenty-trillion dollars in debt. This is the game started by President Woodrow Wilson and the Progressive movement. There soon followed two other progressive styled movements, one was born in Europe and one born in Eurasia. The first were the National Socialists in Germany and the other were the International Socialists in Russia.

So here is the answer that Democrats offer tonight: We choose both. This is almost true as the Democrats always claim that everybody can have everything they desire and that the government can provide these promises and make everybody satisfied because the government can never run out of money. They claim they will do both and all and everything and spend and spend until they can spend no more and to get out of the predicament this spending brought on, the answer is to just spend some more because if they throw enough money at the problem, then it will finally be repaired.

We fight — we fight for both. Because the greatest, strongest, richest nation in the world shouldn’t have to leave anyone behind. This thinking will take the greatest, strongest, richest nation in the world and quickly transform it into the greatest debtor nation in the world. Sadly, this is exactly what has happened because of the big government programs of the last two progressive Presidents, President George W. Bush who doubled the debt from five-trillion dollars to just shy of ten-trillion dollars in his paltry eight years in office and then President Barrack Hussein Obama who in his eight years governing exactly as described above by Joseph Kennedy of leave nobody behind and fund everything also doubled the debt bringing the debt to just short of twenty-trillion dollars making the United States the greatest debtor nation on the planet.

We choose — we choose a better deal for all who call our country home. We choose a living wage, and paid leave, and affordable child care your family needs to survive. We choose pensions that are solvent, trade pacts that are fair, roads and bridges that won’t rust away, a good education that you can afford.

We choose a health care system that offers you mercy, whether you suffer from cancer or depression or addiction. We choose an economy strong enough to boast record stock prices and brave enough to admit that top CEOs making 300 times their average worker is not right.

We choose Fall River. We choose the thousands of American communities whose roads aren’t paved with power or privilege, but with an honest effort, with good faith, and the resolve to build something better for your kids.

That — that is our story. It began the day our founding fathers and mothers set sail for a new world, fleeing oppression and intolerance. It continued with every word of our independence, the audacity to declare that all men are created equal, an imperfect promise for a nation struggling to become a more perfect union.

It grew with every suffragette’s step, every Freedom Rider’s voice, and every weary soul we welcomed to our shores.
And to all the Dreamers out there watching tonight, let me be absolutely clear: Ustedes son parte de nuestra historia. Vamos a luchar.

Vamos a luchar por ustedes y no nos vamos alejar. You are part of our story. We will fight for you. And we will not walk away. Here Joseph Kennedy III is simply repeating the same promise made by Senator Schumer to shut down the government and refuse to allow for any compromise with President Trump because the Democrats know they can rely on the media backing their claim that President Trump is demanding he get everything and the Democrats hear nothing when reality is President Trump offered a path to citizenship as part of his proposal on immigration policy but he demands that they meet certain standards such as a clean record, completed high school, are gainfully employed and speak English. The Democrats want the “Dreamers” to be given amnesty and citizenship without any requirements and that all illegal immigrants are granted amnesty immediately and without any requirements and all are granted citizenship so they can vote. Vote, there is the crucial word in this entire argument as illegal immigrants if permitted the vote would, presumably, vote nearly ninety-nine percent for Democrat politicians, and there is the crux of their demands.

America, we carry that story on our shoulders. You swarmed to Washington last year to ensure that no parent has to worry if they can afford to save their child’s life. You’ve proudly marched together last weekend — thousands deep — on the streets of Las Vegas and Philadelphia and Nashville.

You sat high atop your mom’s shoulders and held a sign that read, “Build a wall and my generation will tear it down.”
You bravely say, “Me, too.” You steadfastly say, “Black lives matter.” You wade through flood waters, battle hurricanes, brave wildfires and mudslides to save a stranger. You battle your own, quiet battles every single day.

You drag your weary bodies to that extra shift so that your families won’t feel the sting of scarcity. You leave loved ones at home to defend our country overseas or patrol our neighborhoods at night. You serve. You rescue. You help. You heal. That — more than any law or leader, debate or disagreement— that is what drives us towards progress.

Bullies may land a punch. They may leave a mark. But they have never — not once in the history of our United States — managed to match the strength and spirit of a people united in defense of their future.

Politicians can be cheered for the promises they make. Our country will be judged by the promises we keep.

That is the measure of our character. That is who we are. Out of many, one. If only this was what the Democrat Party stood for any longer. They prefer to divide Americans into separate little groups, not even demand that they learn English because that presumably is denying them their heritage. Funny how learning English did not rob immigrants of their heritage until the Hart–Celler Act. Then suddenly immigrants needed to have their individual heritage and customs preserved and the melting-pot became the patchwork-quilt and it was all about our differences and not about our combining into a single people who brought their own flavor to the melting-pot, now you kept your pattern and remained within the square of your pattern and each group remained separate. No more “E pluribus Unum,” Out of many, one.

Ladies and gentlemen, have faith. Have faith. The state of our union is hopeful, resilient, and enduring.
God bless you. God bless your families. And may God bless the United States of America. Thank you. More and more promises of everything for everybody paid for by the wealthy. The problem is when you try to repair all the ills by taking from those with the most wealth, those with that wealth take their riches and leave. But the truth is they do not take from those with the greatest wealth. They take from those who work the hardest and this prevents most from ever making into the wealthy clubs because there is a burdensome tax placed on those who have worked hard and are succeeding. Remember that it is an income tax, not a wealth tax. There is no wealth tax in the United States because the wealthy like Joseph Kennedy and President Trump and all too many politicians will never permit a wealth tax as that would hurt their pocketbooks. Instead, they tax the hardest working individuals. What many people do not understand is that when you work overtime, that extra amount you earn often places you in a higher tax bracket and thus you end up making straight wages and the government helps itself to the overtime bonus. Yes, you get a fair share of it back as a tax return but the time the government held your money they used it to make more through investment which you were denied. Go to a town hall meeting and suggest a one-time tax on wealth above twenty-five-million dollars at a ten percent rate and watch the face of your Representative or Senator and it will not matter which party. Have you ever wondered how these Representatives and Senators gain so much wealth on jobs which really do not pay such a great salary for living in Washington D.C. as well as have a residence back in the home district. These servants of the people, unlike the people, are exempt from Insider Trading Laws which means they can use their special insights in order to buy and sell stocks depending on knowledge of mergers or contracts being awarded or terminated and they can buy land ahead of voting for that land to be used for some project which will take the land in the area from say five-thousand dollars an acre to half a million dollars an acre or more. Imagine buying land outside a major city in your area, say forty square miles and then voting to place a military base on that same land. Then you vote to pay the owners of the land, themselves, whatever they think they can get away with and it is all legal. The same concept also works even better with stocks such as buying General Dynamic stock two months before they are awarded a fifty-billion dollar military contract, and then selling that stock afterwards for a handy profit. All Joseph Kennedy is selling here is a horn of cornucopia and trying to tell you that there is no cost for all the goodness within. At least President Trump puts things up right at the front and tells the American people that there is a price which they all will need to contribute to paying in order to make America successful and to bring wealth to everyone willing to work for it. The Democrats tell you they can give you everything and you barely need work for any of it. One of these is a real opportunity and the other is a road paved with ill intentions wrapped in a nice shiny wrapped which says “Good Intentions” all over it and that road, we are told, is paved with gold. There is no such thing as a free lunch, President Trump deals in hard and cold facts and not dreams and wisps of fairy dust.
