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.

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.

“Not My President” Stance Explained

 

We have all seen the posters by now, as we have had almost a full year of active demonstrations against the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. We thought the time had come to try and explain what we have observed and the ruminations we have had over the broad spectrum of the “Not My President” movement and rallies, the “Revolution” as some have referred to these protests and oppositions to the President. The very first thing we have observed has been the majority of the mainstream media and the coverage. The “Not My President” rallies and proponents have been far more graciously received and have been given benefits and less critical oppositions than were those who opposed President Obama. Many will point to the “facts” that the anti-Obama people were racists with no real proof or actual accusations which withstood the investigative media while the investigative media has backed and verified every single accusation against President Trump. We would like to add one small observation, namely that the criticisms of President Trump have by and large been character assassinations with varying degrees of validity and the closest charge against the actual electing of President Trump has been the claim that he lost the popular vote by three-million plus votes.

 

That may be true but it is not valid as he won the Electoral College vote and that is what the Constitution states elects the President and as far as the Electoral College not representing accurately the popular vote, that is a problem which must be remedied state by state one at a time. The Constitution simply states that the Electoral College will give each state one elector for each house seat plus two, one for each Senator and that the District of Columbia gets three electors and that each state and the District of Columbia may designate any method they deem proper for selecting their electors. This permits the winner take all, state legislatures choosing electors, each district electing an elector with the two remaining going to the winner of the state or the candidate with the majority or minority of electors, whatever they decide is fair. As the Federal Government is precluded from selecting the method and it is assigned the states, the states individually must decide and that is where that fight must be fought. President Trump won the election fair and square, by the book, under the rules known ahead of time and just because California voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton, that does not mean she should have won and may be part of why she lost, she won three or four states overwhelmingly but lost around a dozen states by a slim margin by comparison, and that is why Trump is President and Clinton is not. Now people can accuse the President of any of a multitude of character faults and flaws, that does not mean he cannot be President. Once he was sworn in the only means of removing him were wait for 2020 or impeachment with a guilty verdict from the Senate. The second option will remain unlikely unless something drastically changes even should the Democrats take the Senate as it takes more than a simple majority of the Senate for a guilty verdict. The other question for the “Not My President” crowd would be, who exactly do you believe would become President should Trump be removed? If you believe it would be Hillary Clinton, then you are horribly mistaken. The next in line would be Vice President Pence and on down the Line of Succession should Pence be removed before the Senate approved his choice for a new Vice President. If you research the Line of Succession, you will not find Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or any other top Democrat and the first non-Republican is General Mattis, an Independent. Those are the hard factual truths.

 

Not My President Protests

Not My President Protests

 

The other thing we have noticed is while the people opposing President Obama were willing to work to reach agreements where such were possible such as in budgetary matters and numerous foreign policy points, the “Not My President” crowd demands that everything be opposed unless complete surrender to their ideas is accomplished. There can be no compromise or meeting the other side part way, it is their way or no way. This is not politics but the start of fascism as this has been the stand at the beginning of every fascist movement be they straight fascists or Communist, their first step is the closure of debate and a strict demand that their politics must be the only politics permitted to pass through the legislature and administrative branches of the government and if they hold power or even sufficient strength to prevent other ideas, then they will demand their people representing them stand as one against all other ideas. Thus far, this has been exactly how the Congress has been progressing. As there are a number of “Never Trump” Republicans willing to stand with the Democrats, and a few more Republicans, who more often than not stand with the Democrats and have chosen to join the “Never Trump” Republicans or some joined the “Not My President” Democrats, nothing is being accomplished.

 

Oh, perhaps we should give mention to the fact that the Democrat Party, especially in the Senate, had stood as a single entity with every member of the Party voting exactly as the Party leadership instructs them to vote. This is quite impressive as the Republicans only managed such unity against one piece of legislation during President Obama and his eight years in office, and that was his Patient Care and Affordable Healthcare Legislation, also called Obamacare. That passed with no Republican support, and was pushed through without allowing for debate or editing exactly as it was received from the White House. Some have pointed out that the legislation as it came from the White House had not followed through on all the concepts and was intended as a work in progress, not a final act and was roughed out for the Congress to write the minutia, something which was never accomplished and thus why many areas required clarification from the White House which was highly irregular and some points were technically illegal. Despite these modifications from the White House being factually illegal, they would never have cleared the Congress and the passed legislation did not give actual means for accomplishing many provisions in the legislation; there had to be operational and substantive modifications if Obamacare was to be usable. We are not realizing that even with these adaptive alterations that plan is failing and doing so very quickly as more and more items are discovered which have no means of being accomplished making the entirety unworkable as a result.

 

There will be nothing like that passing under President Trump as so far nothing is passing under President Trump. The only effect President Trump had managed, despite holding a Party advantage in both houses of Congress, has been to counter many of President Obama’s executive actions which President Trump has been methodically overwriting or simply making them void through cancellation. That has worked some miracles according to numerous leaders in manufacturing and may have saved the United States coal industry, for better or worse. Another area President Trump has afforded change have been at the Environmental Protection Agency and other regulatory Agencies where his directives have driven big government types insane of which the most obvious has been the requirement that for every new regulations written, two older regulations must be scrapped permanently. This has been intended to accomplish two objectives, clearing the rolls of obsolete and useless unworkable regulations and to lighten the burdensome tasks of following every regulation even including contradictory regulations where one is damned of they do and damned if they don’t. Talk of a no win situation, imagine being required to perform a task for the EPA which was forbidden by the BLM, which one do you please and which one do you risk alienation? Tough choice, isn’t it? So President Trump is having some effect in the tangled webs of regulation by cutting away many of the strands trying to clear a walkway where business can operate outside of government meddling. That would produce millions and allow for more start-ups and possibly allow the United States to retake the per-capita lead in start-up companies, a title currently held by Israel we believe. We understand that many people are anti-Trump simply because he is pro-business. We hope we can explain how being pro-business is also being pro-individual and pro-tax reduction.

 

Many people believe that corporations and businesses pay taxes. That is an incorrect assumption, as businesses do not pay taxes; they collect revenue at a cost for the government. Only people pay taxes and the only things which alters is in which way the people are made to pay taxes and for the costs of collecting these taxes. President Trump realizes that only people pay taxes, the tax on any producer, manufacturer, retailer, store, Mom & Pop storefront, major corporation or anything in between results on two things, higher process and loss of efficiency. At the very least, the purchaser will pay the tax, as whatever the seller must pay in tax will be added to the cost to the public. In most instances, whatever the total cost, including any taxes, is put through a cost formula which determines the final price thus whatever their markup on the base price is often also used on the taxes paid thus the tax actually leads to a greater profit in most cases. Stated simply, the taxes paid at any point in the process bringing any product to the public is passed along that line to the end product or service provided the public. That means only the public pays any and all taxes in the end result. This means that by lowering taxes on producers, corporations, companies, retailers and any other form of seller, the people will benefit and a general tax break is best possible means for lowering prices for the public. Tax breaks for the corporate sphere is actually a tax break for the people. This simple formula is refused by leftists, as they honestly believe that any tax placed on corporations is paid solely by those corporations and the price increase caused by any tax is not added to the price of the final product. That is Pollyannish thinking. No part of adding to the cost of a product will inevitably not add to the cost of the end product. This is part of why the price of the same item at the new, high price mall is more than the price of the same item bought at an older store in the low cost areas of downtown providing the taxes are equivalent. Further, the price of that same item is even lower way out in the country where there are lower taxes. That is simple economics.

 

The Democrats in Congress have decided that tax cuts for corporations, manufacturers and other businesses is simply giving tax cuts to the wealthy because ever business owner is, according to the Democrats, a multimillionaire and not in need of any tax reduction as they can afford to pay the extra taxes. This ignores the inconvenient fact that any taxes they pay is passed on to their customers who may or may not be millionaires. When asked if the people who buy these businesses’ products could use a tax break, the democrat response is that the best way to do this would be to increase the tax return given to people who do not pay any taxes to begin with. They demand that the federal earned income tax credit or earned income credit (EITC or EIC) be increased while taxes on businesses and people earning over $60,000 for individuals and $75,000 for couples should be increased as they are wealthy and can afford to pay more. To translate this to plain and simply English, those paying taxes should be made to pay more and those who do not pay taxes need a greater tax return. This is the Democrats means of increasing welfare payments through other means and finding their path to the perfect society where everyone is made even in wealth with one small exception, themselves. This is made simple by their exempting themselves and their selected sides and advisors from being charged with insider trading when it comes to stocks and other investments. This is the reason most in Congress enter office of moderate wealth and leave office a decade later as multi-millionaires and set-up for life. This is another way in which those who represent the public are not forced to play by the same rules as those who elected them. Why should we be surprised by such news, they have their own healthcare plans, play by their own rules in the stock market, have different rules when investing in the commodities exchanges, and exempt from parking and moving violations when driving if going to a vote or any other business, meetings or appearances. Their lives are made legally exempt from the rules you and we must live under. No wonder they lose the ability to identify with the lives of us normal people, no wonder.

Radioactive Russia Scandal

 

What if a person with political power and connections arranged the sale of twenty percent of America’s uranium supply to a foreign interest? What if they did this for monetary remuneration of millions of dollars? Would this person and their accomplices be guilty of some criminal prosecution? What if this person committed and arranged this deal while serving in a position of the Cabinet of a President who approved of the deal as he preferred that the Russians have the nuclear fuel than the United States. What if this deal was payback for favors being delivered to the person and their interests in the United States? How far and deep does such a connection need to be before it becomes treasonous? And what if this person gained financially from these dealings and would be able to use these dealings to further their efforts to become President of the United States? Exactly how far does one’s ambition and greed need go before their perfidy becomes criminal? These are the real questions which need be asked about dealing with Russia and directly with Vladimir Putin. But fear not, the mainstream American media and European media will not dare touch these acts, which done by anyone else, would get them tried for treason and potentially have them facing twelve men with bolt action rifles and only two with real bullets and the remainder with blanks so that none would know which one fired the fatal shots. Every man in the firing squad could claim that they fired the blank as the report of the rifle was less than normal and that would be every man’s actual feelings as none desire being the executioner. But worry not as no firing squad will ever be called for, even for such blatantly criminal acts as these, as some people of power are above such laws as committing treason; they simply could murder somebody during a press conference covered live in the East Garden of the White House and they would never face any charges.

 

We decided to start by inundating our readers with articles covering the Russia Uranium transfer, supposed possibly criminal activity. We were nice and gracious and did the search for you and here is a sampling of what we found, not necessarily read, but found. There is The Hill, Washington Times, Investor’s Business Daily , New York Post, U.K. Daily Mail, National Review, Fox News, POLITICO, Newsweek, and lastly Boston Herald. If you read all or even most of these articles, then you probably know more than virtually every Television news personality and most others who are chiming in on this controversy.

 

Now, perhaps we can get to our commentary on the entire fiasco. Were Bill and Hillary complicit, probably, but who cares and what does it matter? Vladimir Putin used one Clinton Foundation bribe in order to get approval for the UraniumOne purchase of twenty percent of American mined uranium as well as having all involved with the kickbacks remaining silent, clearing the way for Congressional ratification of the New START Treaty. Oh, if they are guilty of illegal behavior then they should be prosecuted. Right. Really? Why would this time be any different than all the misdealing and illegal quid-pro-quo dealings of hundreds upon hundreds of previous political scams and insider trading which they made perfectly legal for them but not for the rest of us? By now we should all be aware that politicians rarely indict or otherwise prosecute one another which is why the swamp never gets cleared no matter who makes the promise. This will be great fun for the media with many enjoying making great noise and making claims that they have the morsel of incriminating evidence which will seal the deal. Others will go to any extreme to prove that nothing untoward has occurred and if it did, then how about President Trump and Putin, you have not forgotten the stealing the election scandal now, have you? Every news source will cover the Clintons and Obamas dealings with the Russians and the uranium deal as well as the Trump-Putin election stealing exactly as you would expect, with their own slant politically. Where can one turn for accurate and unbiased reporting on this? When you find out, please let us know as they might also give such coverage to things about which we actually care.

 

The Clintons, Bushes, Obamas and virtually every other political family are safely beyond reach of legal officials as long as their deals are made under clouded conditions with paybacks made through third parties and in untraceable routes. They will find cover with the other politicians including even those of the other party as their mutual protection is part and parcel of their comradery. Their motto could be “In Each Other We Trust.” The Congressional leadership has been as crooked as one can imagine. Has anyone ever wondered how members of Congress, and senior staff who are covered by similar rules and lack of restrictions, hold positions which have salaries starting at $174,000 and going as high as possibly $250,000 manage to leave Congress after ten to twelve years as multi-millionaires? They manage such things through currency manipulation such as putting thousands of dollars into the currency of some little known nation where they are about to build a new military base or send hundreds of millions in an aid package and then transferring the currency back to the United States after it has gained in health compared to the U.S. dollars.

 

They invest buying the stocks of companies they are about to give a huge contract thus benefitting from the investment made by themselves and the government in which they are employed. If we tried to do this, we would face charges of insider trading and face criminal behavior, but these people are completely immune to such charges thus are permitted to trade with such foreknowledge of where the government largess will be placed. Perhaps this is why so many college graduates are so interested in gaining a position in the staff of a member of Congress as though the initial payments in the form of salaries is poor, once they make it to a certain level, then they can also invest using their knowledge as their guiding tool knowing all the coming investments which Congress may be about to approve. Sure seems to be a quick and easy route to the millionaires club and even higher for those who can mange to make a career on Capital Hill. No financially rewarding deal will ever be a prosecutorial under the rules which the government higher employers play by though accusations will be thrown hither and nigh between the two major parties one at the other in the name of throwing dirt to see what might stick. By stick they mean what the media will blow all out of proportion making into one giant scandal of the moment before the news cycle moves on to the next disaster. That is the reality of life in the swamp and almost nobody ever spends even just a short five years there without becoming infected by the scandalous behavior of the government and all the money and sleaze that inundates the city.

 

The Clintons had the advantage of having committed acts for which a normal person would have faced long prison terms and walked away free as they were politicians who could get away with murder (not that we would claim they ever actually murdered anyone though others have). They had their fair share of scandalous behavior and concerns while in Arkansas and coming to Washington D.C. simply provided them with a far larger swimming pool from which to commit their pandering. Willian Jefferson Clinton chose women in which to invest his pandering and criminal escapades while for Hillary there were only two things which mattered, power and wealth. She married Bill for the knowledge that he would rise politically and was driven and she could tag along for the ride and possibly take off on her own at some point. That point came once Bill had served two terms with her covering for his escapades and running interference. She then expected that he would give her the support required for her to rise and be President, exactly as he had been, she desired to become. His assistance was rather tepid and her efforts have thusfar failed but she has reaped in the monetary half of her desires. The problem is that Senator from New York and even Secretary of State has not satisfied her lusts for the ultimate power, President of the United States. The Russia uranium deal was just another monetary arrangement, in which she gave Vladimir Putin and his power structure and financial friends what they desired, was repaid handsomely and likely promised that Putin will support her next bid for the White House just as he had presumably supported Donald Trump. President Obama desired this deal for the reason that it served his ideals of leveling the world and bringing the United States down from the position as the most powerful nation in the world and transferred some of that power to the Russians, and this served to weaken the United States and empower the Russians, what could have been better?

Clinton vs Trump

 

This was the big event which was never supposed to become an issue as Hillary was all but guaranteed to become the first woman President of the United States starting January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day. As something went wrong and now perhaps the Russian uranium deal would be exposed while still potentially relevant, there had to be some competing Russian scandal. Now enters that Russia and President Vladimir Putin stole the election through dirty tricks for Donald Trump as there can be no other explanation for why Hillary Clinton lost a sure fire election. The Russians were helping Republicans and were against Hillary, thus how could anybody expect us to believe that the Russians and Hillary Clinton had worked together in a cash for uranium deal if they worked to elect Trump. There you have the competing Russian evil manipulation of the United States elections and nothing, not even twenty percent of the mined uranium in America could compete with stealing the Presidency. And the media, in their collusion, ate it up and ran and are still running with it but some stories refuse to be outdone and just scream to be investigated. That is the problem Hillary Clinton and potentially others are facing as this was a deal beyond the pale if it proves true.
