President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants


After a so-called Trump Administration insider wrote anonymously at the NY Times claiming to be a part of the Leftist Resistance against President Trump, the President should do more declassifying of redacted documents than just 20 pages of a FISA warrant allowing the FBI to spy on Carter Page as reported by Sara Carter.

 

Kelly McLaughlin writing for Business Insider has a list to date of Trump Administration Officials who have DENIED being the identity of the anonymous Deep State Trump traitor. I suspect Attorney General  Jeff Sessions or some DOJ/FBI upper echelon Obama hold-over is my suspect. Glaringly, Sessions is not on the McLaughlin denial list.

 

Still, if Sara Carter is correct, declassifying the Carter Page FISA warrant is a good first step of swamp draining and sticking it to the Deep State perpetrating a coup against the duly and Constitutionally elected President Donald Trump.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants

President Donald Trump

 

President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to sources.

 

However, President Trump, who has been under pressure from some DOJ officials not to release the classified documents, “could always change his mind and it’s not a guarantee that it will happen, but the indications are that it more than likely will possibly be before the end of this week,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject.

 

In July, the Justice Department released over 400 previously top-secret documents connected to the Page warrant. However, more than 20 pages of the FISA document remained highly classified and have only been viewed by a select group of Congressional members and investigators. The lawmakers are now asking that those documents be made public. Behind the scenes, the battle between Justice Department officials and senior members of Congress intensified over the past year, leading lawmakers to call on President Trump to intervene and declassify the documents.

 

In a 38 minute interview with the Daily Caller Tuesday, President Trump said the White House is “looking at it very seriously right now because the things that have gone on are so bad, so bad. I mean they were surveilling my campaign. If that happened on the other foot, they would’ve considered that treasonous. They would’ve considered that spying at the highest level. Can you imagine if we were doing that to Obama instead of Obama and his people doing that to us? Everybody would’ve been in jail for the next 500 years. OK? Can you believe it, where they paid this guy millions of dollars, it turned out? If you look at all of the things that are happening.”

 

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox New’s [sic] Sean Hannity this month that the remaining classified documents regarding Page need to be declassified because “there is exculpatory evidence that we have seen of classified documents that need to be declassified. The judges should have been presented with this exculpatory evidence that the FBI and DOJ had.”

 

In July, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R- IA) also requested the declassification of embattled Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie Ohr worked in 2016 as a contractor for the research firm Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to investigate Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

 

“All these documents will expose how the FBI handled this investigation and give clarity to the public,” said one congressional official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “The American people deserve to know the truth and our country needs to move on.”

 

The FISA documents, which were heavily redacted by the FBI and Department of Justice are expected to reveal detailed information showing that the bureau withheld exculpatory information from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) and the role former British spy Christopher Steele had in getting his unverified anti-Trump dossier to the bureau. Steele was hired by Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, to compile the dossier.

 

New documentation obtained by Congress are already revealing the deep ties Ohr had to Steele and the bureau. Recent texts, notes and emails obtained by Congress reveal that Ohr worked as a backchannel for the FBI to move information being collected by Steele to the FBI.

 

The documentation also exposes Ohr’s inter-workings with the FBI and that he was in communication with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page. Strzok was recently fired by the FBI and Page has since left the bureau. McCabe was fired earlier this year after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a scathing report showing that McCabe lied on numerous times to investigators and leaked information to the media.

 

A recent report by Fox New’s [sic] Catherine Herridge also exposes Ohr’s ties in 2016 to Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s lead prosecutor Andrew Weissmann. Weissmann, who was then chief of the DOJ’s criminal fraud division, was “kept in the loop” by Ohr about his contact with Steele and the FBI, according to the report.

 

Earlier this year, SaraACarter.com revealed that before Weissmann was appointed to the Special Counsel, he arranged a meeting with AP journalists investigating Paul Manafort and his Ukrainian business dealings. On April 11, 2017 Weissmann, the AP reporters and several FBI officials Weissmann brought into the meeting met with the reporters.

 

On April, 12 the AP published the explosive expose on Manafort.

 

According to sources who spoke with this news outlet, the meeting was attended by three different litigating offices. Two employees from the U.S. Justice Department and the other representative was from the U.S. Attorney’s office, according to the sources. FBI agents also attended the meeting, law enforcement sources confirmed.

 

At the time Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, and chief Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores also declined to comment.

 

According to sources, FBI officials at the meeting complained about Weissmann’s failure to follow protocol with journalists. They issued a formal complaint against him to the Justice Department, as they were concerned the meeting with the journalists could harm the ongoing probe into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Editor Intro to ‘Illegal is Illegal’


Intro by John R. Houk

Intro date April 8, 2018

Post by Justin O. Smith

Can anyone provide me with valid legal reasoning – as opposed to bleeding heart globalist sympathetic transnationalism – why the U.S. government or actual American citizens can call an illegal alien a legal alien? If anyone to put together legalese justification, they would either be lying or be dependent on international laws not ratified by the U.S. Senate as required by the U.S. Constitution. In America, YOU CAN’T CREATE LAWS EX NIHILO! The U.S. is a Republic that is governed by the consent of the people as represented by elected legislators who deliberate laws. America is neither a mob democracy or a totalitarian nation ruled by a select oligarchy of elites.

 

That’s my two-cent introduction to some editorial thoughts by Justin Smith about illegal aliens forcing their way onto American soil will continue a process of Obama’s fundamental transformation of the USA into a nation lacking the foundations that have made America great via the individual ability to seek Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. This would be as opposed to the totalitarian State telling YOU what and how to live in an accepted way of life, restricted liberty and what happiness is.

 

Justin writes about the illegal movement of foreign aliens onto American soil. One aspect of the essay that caught my attention is the Leftist funding of a self-proclaimed humanitarian organization called Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Which translated is a globalist concept viz., People Without Borders.

 

This caught my attention because the American Left in league with George Soros desires the destruction of the guarantees in the Constitution and our reason to exist as a sovereign nation in the Declaration of Independence.

 

You probably won’t hear or read too much about Soros involvement, so I’m going to share a video from Glen Beck that over the Soros funding of Pueblo Sin Fronteras. (a video that I might not figure out how to embed on one of blogs in particular. Those folks will have to go to the Beck post, “Trump send troops to stop migrant ‘caravan’ headed for US — but here’s who’s funding the migrant”.)

Beck VIDEO:

http://content.jwplatform.com/players/ydZgHwN5-VYZGOsHs.html

Here is a list of demands from Leftist Pueblo Sin Fronteras on their Facebook page 3/23/18:

 

We demand of Mexico and the United States:

-That they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families
-That they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel
-That deportations, which destroy families, come to an end
-No more abuses against us as migrants
-Dignity and justice
-That the US government not end TPS for those who need it
-That the US government stop massive funding for the Mexican government to detain Central American migrants and refugees and to deport them
-That these governments respect our rights under international law, including the right to free expression
-That the conventions on refugee rights not be empty rhetoric

 

Hmm… The only time a sovereign nation should have concerns about the Rights of refugees is when said refugees are sovereignly accepted on a nation’s soil. There is no global constitution the sovereign USA has accepted as the rule of law; hence foreign migrating refugees have zero Rights until the government gives it to them. Illegally crossing the border without granted asylum is a travesty to the American constitutional rule of law.

Illegal Is Illegal

The Invasion of America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/6/2018 11:05 PM

 

The Leftists Democrats, the socialists and anarchists, never seem to tire in their attempts to destroy our border integrity, what little of it remains, and ensure that the gates of Mexico continue flooding America with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens annually; and, whether or not it was President Trump’s intention, his continued push to legalize 1.8 million Dreamers, in order to highlight Democrats’ refusal to cooperate on border security demands, has actually resulted in a two-hundred percent surge in illegal immigration, from last year. America is currently witnessing a caravan of some 1500 or more illegal aliens heading this way, after being organized and funded by the radical, transnational, leftist group of Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).

 

Many duplicitous elements are also at play, as just this February, America witnessed a proposal set forth by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator Susan Collins, by and large a RINO, that would halt all immigration enforcement against any illegal aliens who arrive before June 2018, in an egregious violation of the four pillars of immigration initially laid out by the president. Not only does this proposal ignore the lessons of 9/11, it increases the risk of crime and terrorism, and it has already ensured a new wave of illegal immigration, effectively turning the United States into a sanctuary nation where the rule of law holds no value.

 

In March of last year, President Trump’s initial tough stance on immigration seemed to have effectively put the brakes on illegal immigration, but as his stance appeared to soften so too did we see an uptick in movement across the southern border. According to Homeland Security statistics, over 16,000 illegal aliens were apprehended last March, but this March the number jumped to over 50,000, up from 37,000 in February.

 

President Trump has even suggested the possibility of a DACA deal, although he also called it “dead” in one breath, while he castigated Democrats for not making a deal in the next breath. This ambiguity has now attracted thousands of more illegal aliens, who are currently heading our way from all across Central America and Mexico, a documented fact. Look for many thousands more of young teens and unaccompanied “children” to start arriving again at our ports of entry, within the next few weeks, and perhaps several hundreds of thousands more by years end, but the leftists, Democrats and liberal Republicans don’t care, since MS-13 and other Mexican and Guatemalan drug cartels aren’t swarming through their neighborhoods.

 

Only in the past two decades has this country allowed the advocates of diversity and multicultural cosmopolitan-one world-order-Marxism to take a firm grip on the reins of our immigration policies. Many Democrats were actually espousing common sense border security as early as the 1990s.

 

In 1993, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated: “The day when America could be the welfare system for Mexico is gone. We simply can’t afford it.”

 

In ‘Lessons from 1986 Immigration Reform’ (February 4th, 2013), Senator Chuck Grassley noted that Democrat Senator Howard Metzenbaum stated in 1985: ” … there is only one realistic way that you can stop illegal immigration into this country, and that is by making it illegal and being tough enough that illegal immigrants cannot work in this country.”

 

Even the New York Times, ever more the mouthpiece for the transnationalists and Marxists across the globe, had more sense on this topic, as noted by journalist Ann Coulter and exhibited in an editorial from September 29, 1997, stating: “Fighting illegal immigration is an important and difficult job. But Congress should do it in a way that will deter illegal entry at the border.”

 

Now, just as lawyers working for the Obama Administration coached illegal aliens, who could not speak English, to keep repeating the phrase “credible fear”, so too are the Soros funded organizers using this same tactic. And illegal aliens will soon appear and claim that they face a “credible fear” in their country of origin, and before the first liberal crocodile tear can fall, they’ll be given a court date and “refugee” status, as they disappear into the homeland regions, only to reappear with driver’s licenses at our voting booths, welfare offices, and DACA protests, holding signs that read “No Bigots, No Borders” and waving Mexican flags alongside upside down American flags.

 

Many Americans and globalists scream that any attempt to stop this current wave of illegal aliens from crossing into the U.S. is illegal. The international court may agree, but we are still a sovereign nation, with all the rights and authority that it suggests, and as such, we as a people have every right to stop these folks at the border and make them apply in Mexico, if they are really refugees at all. Upon verifying their refugee status, our government can decide at that point, just how many to admit, if any.

 

In the meantime, illegal is illegal, whether an elected official wants them here for cheap labor or padding the voting rolls by legitimizing these illegals. The simplest answers, right in front of our leaders faces, if not for their own agendas, would include closing our borders tight to anyone without a visa or a passport, activating E-Verify, moving immediately to deport all 30 million plus illegal aliens, and placing a temporary halt — a moratorium — on all future immigration, until this current generation of immigrants, the illegals who manage to stay and legal alike, have had a long enough period to fully integrate and assimilate.

 

What will President Trump do, if and when the Democrats call his hand? Will he really follow through with his proposed amnesty, turning at least five more states blue/ Democrat and setting up an avenue for amnesty for 30 million of the other illegal aliens in America? We must not give this amnesty under any set of circumstances, since a very small minority of these illegal aliens have actually been here since being infants or toddlers, and even if they were, they’ve had decades to correct their status.

 

This invasion of America by illegal aliens represents a strategic threat to the United States’ sovereignty and our American way of life, but our leaders seem content to wallow in their own fatal incompetence, as they have abandoned America to “whatever will be will be”, failing to stand for American lives, property and liberty. These illegal aliens and their leftist supporters are attempting to devastate our moral heart and freeze our national will to defend our nation, and in this sense, Trump is playing a dangerous game on immigration, which, if not handled properly, will certainly be the final nail in the coffin of Our Republic, sending America into a full blown barely functional authoritarian socialist tyranny.

We The Subjects of Deep State Tyranny


John R. Houk

© February 20, 2018

 

Mat Staver has sent a combo email/fund raising alert to petition members of Congress to posthaste demand the Department of Justice investigate Obama Administration nefarious election practices and the Crooked Hillary Russian Collusion campaign before and after the election to take down President Trump.

 

There are three Fax petition links that require funding to send the faxes. And at the very end is a free petition link that Staver says will be delivered to Congress. If faxing is not exactly in your budget, HERE is the petition link up front. To sign the free petition you have to click link, but here is wording to which you are signing:

 

Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION

 

YES!! I’m taking a stand to expose the FBI-Clinton corruption!

The Issue:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

We are calling on officials of the United States Congress to investigate and initiate prosecution, if the evidence is clear. This is within their congressional responsibility.

 

Take Action…

 

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then take TWO MINUTES right now to sign our “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition.

 

No one is above the law! We demand accountability at every level of government, including holding Barack Obama and his inner circle accountable for their actions during and after their tenure in office.

 

Our Petition States:

 

As a concerned citizen, I am signing this petition calling on Congress and/or the Justice Department to establish an Independent Investigation into the actions of the FBI, the Obama White House, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Hillary Clinton campaign related to collusion and corruption surrounding the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and campaign officials.

There is now a direct paper trail linking the DNC and the Clinton campaign to the so-called Steele dossier. Also, the release of the Nunes memo makes it clear that the FBI both operated in conjunction with Clinton/DNC operatives and withheld key information from the FISA court. This amounts to gross political corruption and the weaponizing of our government against Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s political opponents. An Independent Investigation must be launched!

THEN YOU SIGN IT!

 

In all honesty, an inundation of faxes to your Representative and Senators will draw attention because in November 2018 an election is coming up. Keep in mind the lying Dem machine will be in full swing to deflect from their criminal activities. Realize the deflection is a lie and get angry. Write letters to the Editor expressing displeasure. Inundate your social media platforms with your displeasure. And, if or when, is blocked or ignored, WRITE AGAIN!

 

Ultimately you are a voting citizen if you are eighteen or above by the November 2018 election. Show the propagandists you will NOT BE SILENCED at the ballot box.

 

Here is the reason the Mat Staver email should be acted upon from this quote:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

If any of these unconstitutional treasonous deeds go unanswered or President Trump somehow unconstitutionally removed, then it not only a coup against the Trump Administration but also a coup against the United States Constitution!

 

A Constitutional Coup renders this Preamble to an interesting footnote to history:

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 

A Constitutional coup renders “We the People of the United States” to We the Subjects of a tyrannical government.

In case you missed my important weekend update… Hillary Clinton should go to jail for what we have recently learned. Barack Obama should be put under oath to find out “what he knew and when he knew it.” And the FBI swamp must be drained! Please see below and take action with me — Mat.

 

John [That is I, your Blog Editor],

I need your help to blow the lid off one of the biggest political scandals in our nation’s history. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

+ + How The Obama FBI Was “Weaponized” Against Trump

The recently released House GOP memo on the FBI confirms what we have been learning over several months: the FBI was “weaponized” against then-candidate Trump.

In summary, the memo confirms that the FBI and the DOJ abused their powers to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) warrant against former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.

+ + Barack Obama Now Connected To FBI Cover-Up

Text messages between senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are blowing the lid off of a DOJ/FBI cover-up that likely extends to the Obama White House.

At the time, Strzok was heading up the Clinton email probe and Page was an FBI lawyer. Just two months prior to the election, Page wrote to Strzok about prepping then-FBI Director James Comey because…

 

“potus [President of the United States] wants to know everything we’re doing.”

 

By referencing President Obama, Page’s text raises the critical question: What did the President know and when did he know it? And here’s another question… Why was President Obama even in the loop?

+ + Paid For By Hillary, Implemented By Obama’s FBI

Michael Goodwin, writing in the New York Post, sums up the situation well:

 

“It increasingly appears that the [Hillary] Clinton machine was the secret, original source of virtually all the allegations about Trump and Russia that led to the FBI investigation…. [Clinton’s machine] paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation…. In fact, the Clinton connections are so fundamental that there probably would not have been an FBI investigation without her involvement.”

 

One would expect this level of corruption to occur in a Banana Republic. Sad to say, it happened in America.

+ + Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE THE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION [Fund Raising Fax Link]
I have instructed my Liberty Counsel Action team to spearhead efforts calling for an Independent Investigation into this entire sordid FBI campaign against President Trump.

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then click here right now to automatically sign our “Investigate the Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

This is one of the worst political scandals in American history. We have a presidential candidate (Hillary Clinton) FUNDING fabricated unsubstantiated research against her opponent, which became the basis of an FBI investigation against President Trump. And President Obama wanted “to know everything,” according to an FBI staffer. But if we do not take action, there will be no accountability!

Please… click here to automatically sign the “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition so my representatives in D.C. can personally take these petitions to key leaders on Capitol Hill. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

Thank you for joining us in this bold initiative!

Open Internet Preservation Act Seeks To Stop Internet Censorship & Promote Free Flow Of Information


Congress in both the House and the Senate are moving to protect the Internet from the hands of the Federal government; viz., the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) bureaucracy making law rather than Congress. All bureaucratic rules touted as Federal law should be verified by Congress before it has the force of law.

 

The legislation would not only take a politicized FCC out of the Internet, but would keep some of good parts of the Net Neutrality issues such as preventing ISP blocking or slowing data streaming of companies or ideologies out of favor of the an ISP owner.

Open Internet Preservation Act Seeks To Stop Internet Censorship & Promote Free Flow Of Information

 

By TIM BROWN 

JANUARY 4, 2018

Freedom Outpost

 

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has introduced HR4682, the Open Internet Preservation Act, in the House of Representatives, along with 21 co-sponsors.

 

The bill, which was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce near the end of December, seeks to “amend the Communications Act of 1934 to ensure internet openness, to prohibit blocking of lawful content, applications, services, and non-harmful devices, to prohibit impairment or degradation of lawful internet traffic, to limit the authority of the Federal Communications Commission and to preempt State law with respect to internet openness obligations, to provide that broadband internet access service shall be considered to be an information service, and for other purposes.”

 

This legislation begins to address the growing threat by corporate giants, not just broadband services that are seeking to eliminate anything by the state-controlled message to the masses rather than allowing the internet to be a free flow of information.

 

“The Open Internet Preservation Act will ensure the internet is a free and open space,” said Rep. Blackburn, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Communications and Technology Subcommittee.

 

“This legislation is simple, it provides light-touch regulation so companies can invest and innovate, and makes sure our internet is up to 21st century standards,” she added.

 

Blackburn’s bill was introduced on December 19, 2017 and came just one week after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed the 2015 Title II regulations under the Communications Act of 1934, the so-called net neutrality rules.

 

The repealed regulations classified broadband internet as a utility-like tool for communication. It will now be categorized as an information service, which is what it is.

 

However, the repeal removes bans on throttling, blocking and paid prioritization, as well as on how much data companies would have to report.

 

So, Rep. Blackburn’s bill would seek to restore some of those newly adopted regulations, but not all of them.

 

Among the things HR 4682 would restore are two provisions of the net neutrality.  It bans both blocking and throttling while not including a ban on paid prioritization.

 

Blackburn sought to block the implementation of Net Neutrality in several congresses she served in.

 

In the 112th, 113th and 114th Congress, Blackburn introduced the Internet Freedom Act, legislation that would block the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules by stating that they shall have no force or effect and prohibits the FCC from reissuing new Net Neutrality rules.

 

In 2016, the Senate introduced a companion to Blackburn’s bill, S. 2602. The bill was introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). Co-sponsors included Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Thom Tillis (R-NC), John Cornyn (R-TX), and Benjamin Sasse (R-NE).

 

“We must stop the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules, which are nothing more than a Trojan horse for government takeover of the Internet,” rep. Blackburn said.  “These overreaching rules will stifle innovation, restrict freedoms, and lead to billions of dollars in new fees and taxes for American consumers. We thank Senator Lee for introducing the Senate version and look forward to working with him as we move this forward.”

 

“The economic burden of these regulations will fall squarely on the backs of the consumers the FCC purports to help,” Senator Lee said.  “The threat of anticompetitive behavior should always be taken seriously. But it makes no sense for a five-person panel of presidential appointees to write a sweeping law aimed at solving a problem that might someday exist. There are more effective, more democratic, and less intrusive ways to address anticompetitive behavior, including existing antitrust and consumer-protection laws.”

 

Blackburn commended Ajit Pai for his getting net neutrality rules repealed and said that he “had done his job.”

 

Rep. Stivers, who co-sponsored the bill, said of the legislation, “Bottom line: Free and open internet should never be a partisan issue.  This bill would put into law crucial consumer protections that millions of Americans have asked for and that are emphasized in the principles of net neutrality.”

 

He added that the bill did just that “without imposing the burdensome and overly broad aspects that were originally designed for the rotary telephone on the cultural and economic engine that is our modern internet.”

 

The fight for a free and fair internet is possibly the biggest fight of the century.  If you wish to voice support for this legislation, please contact your representative or senator today!

We Americans NEED Tax Reform


John R. Houk

October 24, 2017

President Trump’s tax reform has a bit of everything beneficial from rich to poor. NOT JUST THE RICH as the Democrats deceptively tell their listeners. Sensibly, along with the give there is also some take. After all, tax revenue is what operates the government whether every Joe-American likes it or not.

 

The Democrats and Left-oriented media obfuscate the reality of Trump tax reform with claims it benefits only the Wealthy and harms the Middle Class. That claim simply is not true because deductions benefitting the rich are stream lined as much to wealthy as to all the other tax brackets. Since the Wealthy pay a majority of the tax revenue, even with a reduced tax rate the reduction in deduction choices still gives the Wealthy a punch to the gut.

 

Talking about tax brackets, President Trump wants three reduced from the present day seven brackets. Speaker Paul Ryan apparently wants to add a fourth bracket aimed at the uber-wealthy most likely to kowtow to the Democrats accusation of a tax plan only benefitting the rich.

 

The Original Tax Bracket Proposal (Source: TheBalance.com 10/23/17)

 

  • Lowest Rate: 12% (down from 15%)

 

  • Middle Rate: 25% (down from 28%)

 

  • Highest Rate: 35% (down from 39.6% – let’s just call it 40%)

 

If GOP Establishment Has its Way – The Fourth Bracket

 

 

TheBalance.com has an accurate of the plusses and minuses of Trump Tax Reform with no pun intended, balancing to the plus-side. SavingToInvest.com is apparently running a constant update on where the Trump Tax Reform seems to be at based on recent information.

 

The Heritage Foundation has a fantastic analysis of the proposed Trump Tax Reform looking through the eyeglass of Congress-talk with the term “Unified Framework”. The Heritage analysis begins by detailing how tax reform will benefit Corporations in the sense of benefiting the U.S. economy. The Corporation analysis is written terms that we every-day Americans can understand. Then Heritage looks at how tax reform affects us normal American individuals. I encourage you to read it: http://tinyurl.com/yalz2k35

 

Today, we have an anti-growth, complex and out-of-date tax code. President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear before the November 2016 election that pro-growth tax reform would be a major legislative priority for Republicans in 2017 if they were given the chance to govern.

Our tax code currently suppresses American business growth, is far too complex for the average citizen, and is full of cronyism. Accordingly, I encourage [you] to stick to the following principles on tax reform: lower and simplify individual tax rates, lower the corporate tax rate, permit “full expensing,” establish a territorial tax system, and end cronyism.

 

The American people gave Republicans control of the House, Senate and White House, and there is a real opportunity to achieve comprehensive, pro-growth tax reform. Congress can use this as an opportunity to pair tax reform with spending cuts in order to comply with the rules of budget reconciliation and maximize the economic benefits of tax reform. After all, the federal government has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. (Hat Tip: HeritageAction.com)

Trump’s New 70-Point Immigration Plan Is Bad News For…


President Trump’s 70-Point plan on immigration reform pretty much hits the head of the nail on accomplishing his campaign promise. He even offers a compromise bone on DACA to the Leftist Dems if they go along with funding The Wall and strengthening border security. But let’s be clear! The only way this plan doesn’t get through Congress is will be due to RINO members joining the Dem hysterical lies.

Trump’s New 70-Point Immigration Plan Is Bad News For DACA, Sanctuary Cities And Violent Gang Members

“…restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America’s safety and security, and end the lawlessness.”

 

By Jack Davis

Western Journalism

 

President Donald Trump unveiled a vast overhaul of America’s immigration policies Sunday night.

 

The package would require that in exchange for any legislation to allow children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, Congress must approve funding a wall along the southern border, approve curbs on federal grants to sanctuary cities and fix the leaky border to stop potential gang members from crossing into the U.S.

 

Trump’s package of proposals would also give federal agents more ability to stop illegal immigrants at the border, detain them if they slip into the country and deport them faster.

 

“These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients,” Trump wrote in a letter to Congress. “Without these reforms, illegal immigration and chain migration, which severely and unfairly burden American workers and taxpayers, will continue without end.”

 

The proposals received support of many lawmakers and officials.

 

“President Trump has put forth a series of proposals that will restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America’s safety and security, and end the lawlessness. These are reasonable proposals that will build on the early success of President Trump’s leadership. This plan will work. If followed it will produce an immigration system with integrity and one in which we can take pride. Perhaps the best result will be that unlawful attempts to enter will continue their dramatic decline,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

 

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., praised the administration for “a serious proposal” and said that “we cannot fix the DACA problem without fixing all of the issues that led to the underlying problem of illegal immigration in the first place.”

 

When Trump announced that he wanted to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, he said he was open to a deal with Congress to allow the estimated 800,000 DACA participants to remain.

 

“Anything that is done addressing the status of DACA recipients needs to include these three reforms and solve these three problems,” a senior White House official told The Washington Times. “If you don’t solve these problems then you’re not going to have a secure border, you’re not going to have a lawful immigration system and you’re not going to be able to protect American workers.”

 

“We would expect Congress to include all the reforms in any package that addresses the status of the DACA recipients,” one White House aide said on the conference call with reporters. “Other views had their fair day in the democratic process.”

 

But Democrats were outraged and accused Trump of racism.

 

“The administration can’t be serious about compromise or helping the Dreamers if they begin with a list that is anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans,” Senate Minority Leader Church Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a joint statement Sunday evening, according to The Washington Post. “We told the President at our meeting that we were open to reasonable border security measures … but this list goes so far beyond what is reasonable. This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise.”

 

Others were not so restrained in their opinions of Trump.

 

“Congress should reject this warped, anti-immigrant policy wish list. The White House wants to use dreamers as bargaining chips to achieve the administration’s deportation and detention goals,” said Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), vice chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

 

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., called the package of reforms “an extension of the white supremacist agenda.”

 

He said it is “fanciful thinking that you can sit down with a man who has based his presidential aspirations and has never wavered from his xenophobic positions. I never understood — I just never got it, how you go from Charlottesville and white supremacists to reaching an agreement with him.”

Faux 28th Amendment, Yet Still Need Convention


John R. Houk

© July 25, 2017

 

I became a recipient of a Chain Email that has been circulating for some years. The Leftist fact checkers who have I have little trust for have debunking posts circa 2011. As far as the Conservative perspective goes I trust TruthORFiction.com. Truth or Fiction purposely presents their website in a retro format for reasons I am unclear.

 

The purpose of the Chain Email I received is to promote a 28th Amendment that makes members of Congress accountable to the same rule of law as every American citizen is. Before a reading of a single paragraph of this 28th Amendment the email provides examples of alleged improprieties that members of Congress and their families receive that Americans do not receive.

 

According to Truth Or Fiction the Chain Email is total poppycock. Here is a debunking excerpt:

 

Summary of eRumor: 

 

A chain email says that children of members of Congress and their staffers have their student loans forgiven.

The email also says that 35 governors have sued for a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would limit federal power.

 

The Truth: 

 

Both of these claims are false.

There is a Student Loan Repayment Program in place to help attract and retain federal employees, but it does not extend to family members. Elected officials, uniform service members and other government employees are eligible under the law.

 

Federal employees can have up to $10,000 in federally insured student loans repaid each year, and up to $60,000 repaid over their career, the Office of Personnel Management reports.

 

And the federal government does not forgive these loans, as the eRumor claims. The loans are repaid. That’s important because it means federal employees have to pay taxes on loan payments just like the rest of their salaries.

 

In 2013, $52.9 million in student loan repayments were made for 7,314 federal employees, the Office of Personnel and Management reports.

 

The email’s claim that 35 governors had sued the U.S. government for a 28th amendment is also false. The email says that the proposed 28th amendment would state:

 

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators, Representatives of Congress; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States

 

That same language was used in an eRumor that TruthorFiction.com found to be false in 2013. Click here for that story.

 

Both versions of the eRumor said that 35 governors had signed onto a petition for a constitutional convention to create the 28th amendment, but that’s not true.

 

At last count, three states had tried to force a constitutional convention. Resolutions in Kansas, Georgia and Indiana sought to balance state and federal power, the Huffington Post reports.

 

And under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, 34 states have to pass a resolution on the same subject to force a constitutional convention — not 38 states, as the eRumor claims.

 

READ THE REST (Children of Congress Members Don’t Pay Back Student Loans-Fiction! 35 Governors Have Sued the Federal Government to Create 28th Amendment-Fiction!)

 

And yet there are actual special benefits for members of Congress that the rest of us American citizens are not privy to. All the perks of the chain email simply don’t exist especially in 2017. Even though members of Congress make less than the private sector with more responsibilities, retirement benefits kick in according to time served and when reach a certain age:

 

Members of Congress are not eligible for a pension until they reach the age of 50, but only if they’ve completed 20 years of service. Members are eligible at any age after completing 25 years of service or after they reach the age of 62. Please also note that Members of Congress have to serve at least 5 years to even receive a pension.

 

The amount of a congressperson’s pension depends on the years of service and the average of the highest 3 years of his or her salary. By law, the starting amount of a Member’s retirement annuity may not exceed 80% of his or her final salary. (Salaries and Benefits of US Congress Members: The Truth; By Robert Longley; ThoughtCo.com; Updated 3/12/17)

 

As of 2014 members of Congress are tied into the same Obamacare health insurance rules as all of us according to Thoughtco.com (Ibid.). Read the CNN explanation of how Obamacare insurance exchanges works for Congress and their staff: How do Congress’ lawmakers get health care? By Ashley Killough; CNN [aka Communist News Network]; 7/18/17 Updated 7:19 AM ET)

 

Too bad the chain email didn’t address actual Congressional perks that We the People do not receive.

 

Senate Expense Account

 

 The Senators’ Official Personnel and Office Expense Account (SOPOEA) is available to assist Senators in their official and representational duties. The allowance is provided for the fiscal year. The preliminary list of SOPOEA levels contained in the Senate report accompanying the FY2017 legislative branch appropriations bill shows an average allowance $3,306,570 per Senator. (Screw Obamacare, ‘We the People’ Want Everything Congress Has; By Lori; GlenBeck.com; 7/25/17)

 

Senate Furniture Expense

 

Each Senator is authorized $40,000 for state office furniture and furnishings for one or more offices, if the aggregate square footage of office space does not exceed 5,000 square feet. The base authorization is increased by $1,000 for each authorized additional incremental increase in office space of 200 square feet. (Ibid.)

 

House Personnel and Office Expense

 

$1,200,000.00

 

Members of the House receive a $250,000 budget for travel and office expenses. (Ibid.)

 

Special Class Beneficial Treatment

 

Members of Congress have long been treated as a special class with lifelong access to members-only parking spaces, elevators, dining rooms and exercise facilities (unless they become a lobbyist).

 

Grooming and Fitness Amenities

 

  • Taxpayer-funded, members-only gym

 

  • Taxpayer-funded, members-only salon

 

  • Taxpayer-funded, members-only barbershop

 

  • Taxpayer-funded, members-only tennis court (Ibid.)

Travel Privileges

 

Staff schedulers often times make reservations for members of Congress via dedicated phone lines that Delta and other major airlines have reportedly set up for Capitol Hill customers. Airlines also permit members to reserve seats on multiple flights but only pay for the trips they take.

Free parking at the two Washington-area airports (At a rate of $22 per day, that represents almost $740,000 in forgone revenue annually for Reagan National). (Ibid.)

 

If Congress Member dies, Family Benefit

 

Family members of those in Congress who die, typically receive a full year’s salary as compensation ($174K). (Ibid.)

 

As to the 28th Amendment in the Chain Email, no such Amendment has even proposed in Congress nor has any State every tried to suggest a convened Constitutional Convention on the matter of equalizing Congressional benefits with American citizen benefits.

 

Some discerning Conservatives believe the Federal usurpation of power has exceeded the design of the Framers of the Constitution. These Conservatives believe Congress is too hamstringed to reverse the despotism of excessive Federal power over the We the People where the Founding Fathers believed power should reside. In this view the best Constitutional method of restoring power to the people is based in Article 5 of the Constitution:

 

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

 

– Article V, U.S. Constitution (From ConventionOfStates.com/Solution)

 

I as well lean toward a Constitutional Convention. But there is no surprise the American Left is not in big favor of a Convention. There are also Conservatives that fear a Convention not because they don’t recognize the problem of excessive Federal Power, rather these Conservatives fear an out of control Convention which the American Left may prevail potentially making the threat to American Liberty worse than the Dems and Leftist activist Courts already have.

 

This excerpt relays the fears:

 

Many people have voiced concern over the convention method of amending the Constitution. Our only experience with a national constitutional convention took place 200 years ago. At that time the delegates took it upon themselves to ignore the reason for calling the convention, which was merely to improve the Articles of Confederation. The Founding Fathers also violated the procedure for changing the Articles of Confederation. Instead of requiring approval of all the state legislatures, the signers of the Constitution called for ratification by elected state conventions in only nine of the 13 states.

 

Another point of anxiety is that Article V of the Constitution says nothing about what a convention may or may not do. If a convention is held, must it deal with only one proposed amendment? Or could the delegates vote on any number of amendments that were introduced? The Constitution itself provides no answers to these questions.

 

Howard Jarvis, the late leader of the conservative tax revolt in California during the 1970s, opposed a convention. He stated that a convention “would put the Constitution back on the drawing board, where every radical crackpot or special interest group would have the chance to write the supreme law of the land.”

 

Others, like Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, disagree with this viewpoint. Senator Hatch has said it is ironic when the people attempt to engage in “participatory democracy set forth by the Constitution, we are subject to doomsday rhetoric and dire predictions of domestic and international disaster.”

 

Of course, any amendments produced by a convention would still have to be ratified by three-fourths of the states. We may soon see how this never-used method works if the balanced budget people swing two more states over to their side. (Do We Need a New Constitutional Convention; Constitutional Rights Foundation)

 

Here is the Convention of States rebuttal to the fears:

 

Much of the opposition to an Article V convention hinges on fears of a “runaway convention.” Convention opponents frequently argue that a convention is inherently unlimited and once it convenes it cannot be restricted in any way. …

 

The text of the Constitution itself clearly indicates that a convention can be limited in at least some ways. For instance, a convention under Article V is limited to “proposing amendments.” It is essentially a recommendatory body: it cannot ratify its own proposals. Thus, even an “unlimited” convention is limited in this critical respect, which prevents rash or unpopular amendments from becoming part of the Constitution.

 

Further, Article V specifies that certain topics are off-limits for a convention (and for Congress) to consider. The last portion of the article takes certain provisions relating to the import of slaves off the table until 1808, and forbids any amendment that deprives the states of equal representation in the Senate. There can be no question that certain topics are off-limits for a convention, since Article V itself imposes those limitations. That states legislatures may further limit the authority of a convention is shown by the historical practice and purpose behind Article V.

 

 

In short, the text of Article V, the history and purpose behind it, plus Congress’s own inaction, all indicate that an Article V convention can be limited to a particular topic or set of topics. Our Founders knew what they were doing when they voted unanimously to put the convention provision in Article V.10 A convention is not some all-powerful body with authority to unilaterally scrap our Constitution, though convention opponents often represent it in that light. It is a limited-purpose committee intended to give the states the ability to propose particular amendments that Congress never would. As such, the state legislatures can impose binding subject-matter restraints on the convention to ensure that it does not run away. (A Single-Subject Convention; By Robert Kelly, J.D.1 [1. Mr. Kelly is a practicing attorney and a member of the California Bar. He currently serves as General Counsel for Citizens for Self-Governance.]; Convention of States pdf)

 

Frankly I can think of some more important issues for the 28th Amendment of the Chain Email. The Left must submit to what made America great. The Left has done such an effective job of propagandizing their agenda that most Americans are not even aware of the Liberty and Freedom our Founding Fathers fought for against the British Crown despotism of the 1760s and 1770s. The witless supporters of the American Left have been slowly restoring Americans to the same despotism that led Thirteen British Colonies to demand Independence that eventually led to the U.S. Constitution of laws of We the People.

Proposed 28th Amendment and Congress

Chain Email

Editor Received 7/25/17

 

Please read 28th amendment

 

Please Read, and forward.   This will only take 1 minute to read!

28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting.

 

It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass it on. It’s an idea whose time has come to deal with this self-serving situation:

 

OUR PRESENT SITUATION!

 

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans.

 

Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans.

 

Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.

 

Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.

For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment.

 

And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects.

 

We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.

 

I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

 

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

 

IF???

 

Each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.

 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

 

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States …
