Schumer’s  Shutdown Shakedown


Leftist Democrat Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi in a recent theatrical newscast repeatedly insulted President Trump over his desire to secure US borders as part of the budget approval process denying they would ever approve any security measures for our southern border that included building a wall despite having said he would approve doing so during the Obama administration.


They indicated they are not interested in US border security yet blasted President Trump for pulling out of Syria and not continuing to secure its security at US expense.


Schumer has long represented the state of New York, a bastion of progressive, left-wing politicians.


 Schumer has a reputation for political fundraising but has never introduced a successful bill of his own in Congress despite being in office for more than 20 years.  He has, however, been associated with the Brady Gun Bill, despite being a gun owner.  Schumer has never held a job in his adult life or served in our military or been responsible for a payroll.



The administration’s weaponization of illegal aliens and refugees may be far more sinister than even the most ardent opponents have yet imagined.

On one of these calls, Obama conducted a meeting with his new ‘Task Force On New Americans,’ chaired by radical Cecilia Munoz, former vice president of the radical, Hispanic race-supremacy group La Raza (‘The Race’).

“Remember when he (Obama) went to Las Vegas? The media said he was signing an executive order for five million illegal aliens to become deferred. In reality, what he did was sign a memorandum that created the ‘Task Force On New Americans,’ which was going to implement his ‘amnesty mill’ for the five million illegals – which I believe is going to be more than that… On these conference calls, it became clear that he’s looking at 13 to 15 million to give protection and move them on to citizenship.” – Payne

These initial “new Americans” are to be used as “seedlings” in the construction of a “country within a country,” which would help complete a full ‘fundamental transformation’ of the United States.

Specific cities are being designated as “receiving communities” (sanctuary cities – we now have 300!) to which illegals are being bused and flown at the expense of American taxpayers. These communities are being used as incubators for an entirely new population that assist in bringing ‘people in the shadows’ into the light – to essentially conquer proper citizens and push them into the underclasses over time.

Final thoughts:  Political Earthquake Coming-Guess Who Will Run for President?

The imbalances are extreme and obscene... Also the GOP must get its act together in regard to women if it expects to succeed [more in leadership roles for instance]

This is why I think the GOP lost so much in the past mid-term elections.  The Dems/Socialists are tapping into a growing unrest in America between the haves and the have-nots.  There is a coming political earthquake for this nation.

Social unrest that will erupt more and more frequently here and around the world if the economic and political elites continue to behave as they have. Wealth and power have been stripped from the public and been concentrated into the hands of fewer and fewer people.

In a Pew Research Center study of Americans age 22-37, 57% called themselves “mostly” or “consistently” liberal. In a Gallup poll of Americans age 18-29, 51% had a positive view of socialism. And in a University of Chicago survey of Americans age 18-34, 44% said they would prefer to live in a socialist country.

Kids today, few of which ever had to fend for themselves or had that opportunity removed from them by the Nanny State, are drawn to socialism…they’re broke, they can’t afford today’s high cost homes and autos, they’re tired of living in basements, they want to make the world a nicer place – with your money!

Earlier this year…

In the Democratic primary election for New York’s 14th district earlier this year, democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trounced incumbent Representative Joseph Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House. Clearly overconfident, Crowley barely even campaigned. Since then, Ocasio-Cortez has become a media darling, appearing alongside Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist who narrowly lost the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. While much of the energy among Democrats is on the far left, the party has made a point of selecting candidates with a real chance of winning in November.

A revolution is probably coming and the younger generation will likely lead it.  That revolution will see several things which I predict including:

·         A quadrupling of our income tax

·         A national sales tax

·         A single payer health system

·         A $15 minimum wage for everyone across the board nationally

·         A forgiveness of all student debt combined with some kind of free tuition for college

·         More rights will be eroded such as free speech, gun rights & even the ability to carry cash over certain amounts [it is already limited at airports & border checkpoints].

All of this will be in response to the vast growing inequality income gap in this country which has seen huge declines in our middle class during the past generation or two.  Many blame the GOP and old line Democrats for maintaining this status quo.

The middle class has been steadily shrinking, but most Americans still believe that they are a part of it.  Perhaps this is due at least in part to the egalitarian values which have been pounded into our heads for most of our lives.  Very few Americans would have the gall to define themselves as “upper class”, and I have never met anyone that would describe themselves as “lower class”.  In place of “lower class”, many politicians now like to use the much more politically correct term “working class”, but a more apt description might be “the working poor”.  Today, half of all American workers make less than $30,533 a year, and you certainly cannot support a middle class lifestyle for a family with children on that kind of income.

Our incomes have stagnated as the cost of living has soared, and the middle class has experienced steady erosion as a result.  But despite all that, 68 percent of all Americans still consider themselves Middle Class …

In reality, the middle class now makes up just over 50 percent of the total U.S. population, according to a recent report from Pew Research Center, which used 2016 data. That’s compared to 61 percent in 1971.

CitiBank research indicates Americans are once again at record credit card debt levels not seen since 2009 and more people are being denied loans and new credit card applications…they’re even at record levels of upside down rates in auto loans.

Here’s my big prediction for the next electionMichele Obama will run for president!  Her current book tour has been in reality,  a trial run.  It has been overwhelming successful.  The media and the public gushes over her every move.  With the backing and blessing of Oprah [which she’ll undoubtedly get] her odds of winning against any opponent are outstanding.


Obama, Clinton and Alinsky -  radical connections

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past decade, you've surely heard of Barack Obama's connections with radicals such as race-baiting, America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright and unrepentant terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and probably Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, another darling of the Democrats.

Another radical connection you may not have heard of is Saul Alinsky, called the "father of community organizing" in modern America. Many people have been asking, "What the heck is 'community organizing?'" We found this definition: community organizing is the political practice of organizing communities to act in their own common self-interest. This is typically accomplished through agitation. Saul Alinsky is credited with coining the phrase, "Think globally, act locally."

In the opening paragraph of his book, Rules for Radicals, published in 1971 (the year before his death), Alinsky says, "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be[Sound familiar?] The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."

In a letter to the editor of The Boston Globe published on August 31, 2008, Alinsky's son David gushed about how well Obama had learned his father's teachings

Clinton wrote her honors thesis at Wellesley College on his work and Obama’s first years in Chicago were spent as a community organizer with a group that based their methods on his teachings


While writing her thesis on Alinsky, Clinton had the opportunity to interview him personally on several occasions. That connection led him to offer her a job at his newly formed Industrial Areas Foundation, which she turned down in order to study law at Yale.

While Clinton and Obama incorporated some of Alinsky’s teachings, they both had critiques for his approach as well. Dedman articulated some of Clinton’s and summarizes with this:

“I agreed with some of Alinsky’s ideas,” she explained in “Living History,” her 2003 biography, “particularly the value of empowering people to help themselves. But we had a fundamental disagreement. He believed you could change the system only from the outside. I didn’t.”

A Parting Thought or Two…

Entropy The idea of entropy comes from a principle of thermodynamics dealing with energy. It usually refers to the idea that everything in the universe eventually moves from order to disorder, and entropy is the measurement of that change.


Economist Stephen Moore told Fox Business that when the Fed raises interest rates “they should all be fired for economic malpractice”…We agree!


Yours for a brighter season,

Surprised to see a post from you on Saturday! Happened to be reading your other content & saw this. Couldn't agree more. The press was salivating over Chucky & Pelosi's mini-news conference denouncing Trump over the budget. I find it odd the Democrats never air ANY concern over the security of own border yet moan over that of Syria [suddenly] as if it has been of any real concern to them. Just an opportunity for them to bash Trump & as you point out, Chuck had previously been in favor of border fencing under Obama so what's up with these flip-floppers?
You sure got the title right SCHUMERS SHAKEDOWN but the press won't use that...

Dems send a lot of mixed signals as they are slippery ones & it is tough to figure them out. On one hand they appear to be "coopertive" but on the other hand I have little trust in them.
Have a great Holiday!
