Fake campaign promise by Trump to lower taxes has reduced his Presidency to swimming in the swamp

“If you’re single and earn less than $25,000 per year, or married and jointly, and jointly earn less than $50,000 – so very important – if you’re single and make less than $25,000 or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you’ll not pay any income tax. Nothing.” – Donald Trump

@2:00 – Less than $25,000 or jointly less than $50,000, pay no taxes


February 3, 2017

In January President Trump took office and almost immediately lowered the benefits of his “middle class” tax plan. Suddenly, the $25,000 and $50,000 standard deductions promised on the campaign were slashed 40% to just $30,000 and $15,000. Continue reading →

Deep State, bankers, corporations, and politicians combine to “Keep America Just Like It Is Now”

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion.”

National Security Council (NSC) Advisor Herb Ray McMaster apparently disagrees with that adage, and fired staffer Rich Higgins for spilling the beans on the Deep State of corporate cronies, intellectual phonies and political hacks.

Higgins served NSC’s strategic-planning office as director for strategic planning. He was fired on July 21.

The memo, written near the end of May, said the mindset within the White House is inadequate to the threat:

This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken.

Earlier this year, Higgins had pushed to declassify documents dealing with radical Islam and Iran, including Presidential Study Directive 11, produced by the Obama administration before the Arab Spring, that outlined unrest throughout the Middle East, according to a report in The Atlantic.

McMaster also recently fired Derek Harvey, senior director for the NSC Middle East strategy. Before removal, Harvey produced a list of NSC holdovers from the Obama Administration and presented it to McMaster, who declined to fire them, the report said.

This past week, McMaster was touted by Sen. John McCain, many mass media pundits, Democrat Party leadership and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Continue reading →

Sick seniors or the disabled may not be allowed to buy guns for self defense under new Obama rule

71-year-old man shoots robbers at internet cafe in Florida

Last week, it became more dangerous to be old or disabled.

That’s because the Barack Obama brain trust ordained a rule that will force the Social Security Administration (SSA) to share records with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to look for so-called disabled or impaired individuals.

The government then decides whether or not to ban them from buying a gun.

The SSA maintains that “under our representative payee policy, unless direct payment is prohibited, we presume that an adult beneficiary is capable of managing or directing the management of benefits.” That means you better keep your checking account in your own name, and if you go crazy. just let someone handle your finances using only your name.

New Benghazi report damns the White House Dems; view committee’s entire 800-page proposed text here

Route to Annex“What difference does it make?”

This is a banner day for the soon-to-be Democrat candidate for USA President, as the FBI Director described use of a private server in her basement as only “extremely careless,” despite 2,000 classified emails stored at home without government servers’ anti-hacking protection. His recommendation was to do nothing, even though knowingly exposing national secrets to foreign governments is a criminal act.

MapThe candidate’s husband met with the Director’s boss, the Attorney General,  a few days ago in a plane after emptying it of reporters and the Secret Service. Reports from the two politicians described it as G & G – meaning golf and grandchildren. Other reporters said the confab was accidental, but those pundits probably also believe in the bicuspid bully.

The recent forgiveness of her serious crime was not limited to electronic mail. A few days ago, the press agreed that “nothing new” was contained in the Select Committee on Benghazi proposed report that damned the state department, which the candidate once headed.

The report was most concerned with events leading to the deaths of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, emphasizing that there was very much that was new in the revelations. The committee’s own analysis of their report follows: Continue reading →

White House speaks, networks bow – does CBS News chief David Rhodes echo “facts” from Ben Rhodes?

When Ben Rhodes recently boasted about the ability of the White House to get its message across with little investigation of facts by the networks, he acted as though the blame fell on young, inexperienced members of the press corps.

Many political reporters are young and inexperienced. But that wouldn’t stop them from checking facts and seeking other sides to stories. Only their bosses could curtail their quest for truth. And if you are making a couple hundred thousand dollars a year, losing your job may be more important to you, than telling the whole truth.

Rhodes is Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speech writing, according to the White House.

He also serves as the deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for Obama and is an advisor to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action also known as the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal.

If you wonder how a 30-year-old became Obama’s speechwriter in 2007, perhaps one clue might be his last name and his famous brother.

David Rhodes

Ben’s brother (you can tell by the ears), David, is president of CBS News. At his appointment in 2011 he was the youngest network news president in the history of American television, and he is responsible for CBS News broadcasts and the division’s news gathering across all platforms including television, CBS News Radio, CBSNews.com and CBSN.

David began his career in television journalism with Fox News, where he joined as a production assistant before the channel started in October 1996. He eventually became Vice President, News. In 2008, Rhodes moved to Bloomberg as head of U.S. Television.

It’s nice to have a brother in the White House, and it’s equally pleasant to have a brother running a major network. One hand washes the other. It’s difficult not to wonder if the CBS eye is just winking today, or has entirely closed?


The Rhodes brothers are not alone in their news/politics power. Continue reading →
