Its A Mystery To Me Why Some People Lie About The Devil When The Truth Is Worse

Common Sense Commentary: Since I have been using computers I have come across or had emailed to me fake notices, warnings, and articles from banks and companies I do business with, people I know and Government agencies, including the FBI, which looked exactly like the real thing but were phishing expeditions or virus carriers by crooks and evil Internet experts.

These Internet geniuses who have the ability to create a fake news story and make it look exactly like the real thing, with a News Network byline and a perfectly written, negative article which fits the modus operandi of the person being written about, but is a lie, is beyond comprehension. It is impossible to rationalize whether they are opponents trying to make the case against the person even worse than it already is or whether they are for the person lied about and are baiting a trap for over zealous opponents of the person, to snap up, spread across the Internet and look like a liar or an idiot. The true case against the Democrat Party, Obama and Hillary already contains so many negative, excruciatingly horrible facts, which are true, that lying about them is not only unnecessary hyperbole, and sinful, but plainly stupid.

I guarantee you that anyone who is on the Internet a lot has put their foot in one of those traps at least once. Even Internet sifting organizations like Snopes can't be depended on with certainty, but often reflect their own political bias. I usually "Google" or "Bing" questionable stuff, but I have some of that stuff on my shoe this morning.

Looks Like A Duck, Quacks Like A Duck ... May Be A Chicken In Drag

Common Sense Commentary: Its no news to red, white and blue Conservative Patriots that the first Bush was, and apparently still is, 25 % Republican and 75% Democrat. This first George is what Conservatives mean when they refer to RINOs which means Republican In Name Only. If the truth were known, he is no more a Republican than Bloomberg. There seems always to be a Judas in Political Parties, Corporations, Armies and Churches. Even Jesus had one among the Apostles. There must be an important negative lesson there somewhere. This old Bush (older than me) is the primary reason I ceased calling myself a Republican, in favor of Independent. My earliest objections to him have never changed. His globalist mindset was first revealed when he spoke with religious sanctity of "A new world order", which he proposed would solve most of the world's problems. Brexit and Trump must have really rattled his old bones. I can only thank God Jeb Bush stumbled when he reached for his daddy's and brother's mantel. That being said, I would rather have had Jeb than Hillary who has no Conservative Patriotic or Christian tenancies whatever, but is an out and out Liberal Socialist Heretic. So, do I like the Republican choice for President ... Donald Trump? No, but I like him better than the devil or any Democrat Donkies I know of ... and all RINOs in Elephant disguise.  RB

George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary Clinton
A Kennedy outs a Bush who favors a Clinton.

Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

On her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: "The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”
In a telephone interview, Townsend said she met with the former president in Maine earlier today, where she said he made his preference known that he was voting for a Democrat. “That’s what he said,” she told POLITICO.

Asked about Townsend’s post, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath in an email replied, "The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim."
George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush have stayed out of the political debate since campaigning earlier this year for their son Jeb's unsuccessful bid for president. Neither George H.W. Bush nor his son, former President George W. Bush, attended this summer's Republican National Convention in Cleveland where Trump accepted the nomination.

Many former GOP officials from both Bush administrations have also announced their support for Clinton over Trump, including national security adviser Brent Scowcroft and former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez.

One Bush official who has taken Trump's side is former Vice President Dan Quayle, who told POLITICO in an interview this summer he was still holding out hope both Bushes would back Trump. "Clearly in their heart of hearts I should hope they would want a Republican president, but they can speak for themselves," Quayle said in an interview in July.

Marine Vet Scalds NFL Commish For Allowing Player Disrespect Of Anthem

Common Sense Commentary: The National Football League Commissioner's cowardess, to discipline one League player when he insulted the nation by refusing to stand for the National Anthem, resulted in other players showing the same hatred for our country and has now spread to high school football teams.  It is the same old story of leadership dereliction of duty and neglect of responsibility leading to rampant, out of control rebellion  against law and order. If illegal drug abuse had been stomped out at its beginning with heavy fines and incarceration, for the renegades, when it would have helped, we wouldn't have the trillion dollar cost, millions of hopeless addicts, our courts bogged down, and prisons overloaded with the resulting criminal element which feeds on it, today. Those old fashioned, self evident axioms my parents and grandparents anointed such problems with, had Common Sense meaning. Such miraculous remedies as "A stitch in time saves nine" and "Nip it in the bud" worked to bring our nation to the mountain-top of success and greatness our country enjoyed for 250 years. Our country is now in the age of compromise, dysfunction and national decay run into the ground by the likes of Jimmy Carter, Bush #1, Bill Clinton, Obama, Hillary, the NFL Commissioner et al. RB

Here is Marine Col. Jeffrey Powers letter to the NFL Commish.
I've been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium. I missed a season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm.
  14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American    Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with    one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants  were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they are something special! They are not! My Marines and Soldiers were!

You are complicit in this!

You fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the 
fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it's their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that is much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn't it his 1st Amendment right to express
himself like an idiot in the end zone?

Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fists in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You are just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you
call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.

They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don't do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted
off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don't even have ice! Many don't have legs or arms.
Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety.  On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.

I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

Muslims Occupy Many Key Strategic Positions Of Leadership In This Administration

The Obama Administration is allowing  Hundreds of thousands more immigrate and illegals into the U.S. every year ... and it is not uncontrolable but is increasing by Democrat Government policy.
The very fabric of our country is changing from red, white and blue stars and stripes to the black flag of Islam and patriotism is exchanged for the refusal to stand for our National Anthem.  That is my Common Sense Commentary on the following.... RB

Understand why....
Obama refuses to say the words "radical Islam."

We now have a  Shadow Muslim Government .

John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to  Islam while  stationed in Saudi Arabia.

Obama's top Advisor,  Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where Her Parents  Still  Live.

Hillary Clinton's Top Advisor Huma  Abedin  is  a   Muslim ... whose Mother and Brother Are involved in the now outlawed  Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Assistant  Secretary ....  for  Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif  Aikhan ... is  a  Muslim.

Homeland  Security  Advisor, Mohammed Elibiary,  is  a  Muslim.

Obama Advisor and Founder of  the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati,   is   a  Muslim.

Obama's Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America ...  is  a   Muslim. Advisory  Council  on  Faith-Based Neighborhood  Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is  a  Muslim.

1/13/15:  Nancy Pelosi announced She will appoint Rep Andre Carson,  D-Ind,  as the First Muslim Lawmaker on the  House  of Representatives  Permanent  Select Committee on Intelligence. It would make Carson  the  First Muslim to  serve on the Committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic Militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that U.S. Schools  should be modeled after  Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the  Quran!!!

And last but not least, our closet Muslim Himself,  Barack Hussein Obama.

It's questionable if Obama ever officially took the  Oath of Office  when  He  was sworn in.  He  didn't  repeat  the  oath properly  to defend  our  Nation and our Constitution.  Later  the  Democrats claimed  HE was given the  Oath again in Private?

CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible.

Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur'an

Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about "Muslims taking over our government".

Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.

The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he's become!

Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us. It can only get worse!

In his book he said, “….if it comes down to it, I would go with the Muslims.”
Here is Confirmation from an insider...

U.S. Admiral (Ret.) James “ACE” Lyons  
My Comment:
We, in America, are living in a strange time of mental and spiritual paralysis in which, our President can violate, to the worst extent, any Constitutional principle, standard, law, with absolute impunity. Its not as if he has simply made mistakes or does it in ignorance. He has plainly stated in word and writings that our U.S. Constitution is a flawed, outdated relic which he will not observe, even though he swore that he would defend it. Yet, he supports Muslim terrorist sponsored, and connected organizations. See it in the link below. RB.

The James Two Equation: Here Is HELP With Voting By Mail Or Registering

Common Sense Commentary: There is a common mistake many Christians make. The idea that faith alone is all God requires of His people for their welfare, for justice to win out and for God's will to be done. Many Christians who believed that have lost their their health, their families, their freedom or their lives... because of their failure to put feet to their prayers, to "do" their part in God's James Two Equation. Jesus "built" his church, "Commissioned" it, and "empowered" it with the Holy Spirit. But one more thing was required .... Obedience to the "go" in the Commission... "works", the action of the Apostles and other Christian disciples recorded in the book of Acts, the book of Action. It is true that Salvation is by Grace through Faith and not of works, but God uses the actions, the works of His disciples to carry that salvation message to the lost and to do good works for Him. That is why the Apostle Paul declared that the ugliest part of the human body, the feet, were beautiful when they went to work for Jesus... "... as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Rom.10:15.

God has given us a vital part in accomplishing his will and work on earth .... good works..... obedience ... "go ye".

Here is the James Two Equation:
James 2:17-26 
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
The Christian vote is neither faith alone nor works alone but the work of faith in doing what is best for our country, for our children, for God's people and for America's future.

Because our faith and works matter, I have made a commitment to vote this election year. Together, we can achieve the seemingly impossible because of Who we serve, and because there's strength in numbers. Join me in taking the pledge to vote, and show that your faith is real ... by our works. Follow this link and take the pledge and get help with voting by mail or registering. RB

Trump's Best Campaign Ad Is The Only Truth Obama Ever Told

Common Sense Commentary: When Obama was campaigning against Hillary, eight hears ago, he told every corrupt thing he could discover, from her Democrat friends, about her ... all of which were a matter of public record. Now, he contradicts all those truths by lying about how good a president she would make. The biggest mystery among Democrat politicians is, which of them is the most proficient liar on planet earth. If I were a Democrat, I would not admit it lest I expose my ignorance or moral deficiency. The only vote I would cast for Hillary is as winner of the global liars contest. I can't imagine any honest, moral person being a member of the party of abortion, homosexual marriage, anti-police, political corruption, legalizing illegal drugs and on and on. If I suddenly found myself a passenger on the rotting hulk of the Democrat tramp freighter, crewed by pirates infected with contagious political diseases, I would jump overboard with the sharks and swim for the nearest palm tree. Trump's best campaign ad is the video below of Obama's litany of offences and corruption, eight years ago, committed by Hillary up to that point. Those crimes and violations have now mushroomed exponentially at the speed of her globe trotting as Sec. of State, but, now Obama brags on her and the media ignores the contradiction and her long list of crimes and lies.

Bill Clinton's CIA Director Supporting Trump? What Does He Know About Hillary?

Common Sense Commentary: The most important thing about Bill Clinton's CIA Director R. James Woolsey's comments, in an interview on CNN, is the fact that, as CIA Director, he knows more about the Clintons than anybody in the country, including Chelsea. She only knows them as Mom and Dad. Woolsey knows them as "Free Love Bill" and "First Hellion Hillary". He knows all, I mean all, the facts, mode of operation and hidden secrets of both Good Ole Bubba and "The Meanest First Lady" in History ... Ask the Secret Service. That was one of the "fringe benefits" Woolsey gained by having his hi-tech eyes, ears and nose on all the world leaders .... especially Bill and Hill. He knows every dot and tittle of their private selves, which has shook his battered  conscience to do the unthinkable ....his world rattling crisis decision, to go public in favor of Main Street Media's favorite whipping boy... Donald Trump. You can bet he also knows all of Trump's secrets as well.... but what he knows forced him to support and advise Trump, not his fellow Democrat.  That endorsement screams ... in reverberating harmony, with the sane half of America ... "Anybody but Hillary!!" RB

This article from Constitution, Defending the Union from threats foreign and domestic 

Bill Clinton’s CIA Director says 

.... Trump is the Safer Bet!

This may be the biggest endorsement that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has gotten since the primary season ended. His biggest weakness with voters has long been his perceived lack of experience on foreign policy, which has been exacerbated by the foreign policy establishment’s general embrace of Hillary Clinton. While Clinton likely plans to pursue many of Barack Obama’s failed policies abroad, she has generally toed the foreign policy line that the political establishment has been parroting for years. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has taken a different tack on issues dealing with Russia, China, the Middle East, and Latin America. These differences have made it difficult for him to find supporters in the foreign policy community that could help him reassure voters.

That’s no longer a problem.

Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, who was appointed and served under President Bill Clinton, came out this week and announced that he would joining the Trump campaign and advising Mr. Trump on foreign policy.

Woolsey said that he could not support Clinton because of her unwillingness to sacrifice her own self-interests and to safeguard our secrets.

“She demonstrated a complete lack of understanding and an inability to lead the agency she headed in such a way as to maintain its mission and security,” Woolsey said in a statement. “Based on the emails thus far released we know that Secretary Clinton also lacks the ability to lead her senior managers while complying with and maintaining the basic protocols designed to protect our government’s sensitive and classified information. Mr. Trump understands the magnitude of the threats we face and is holding his cards close to the vest.” Later in an interview with CNN, Woolsey cited Trump’s ability to safeguard our secrets (better than Clinton has) and his budget plans as reasons for throwing his support to Mr. Trump.

“He seems to be, more so than his opponent, in favor of a strong defense budget. We’ve got a lot of space to make up and problems that have been left in defense by the Obama administration.”

Woolsey’s endorsement and advice may go a long way to helping Trump close the foreign policy gap that he’s thus far encountered with Hillary Clinton. Also, now that Woolsey has joined the team, one wonders if other foreign policy experts will begin lining up with Trump as well. With the debates around the corner, the Trump team certainly seems to be getting their political affairs in order, which can’t be welcome news for the Clinton campaign.

U.S. World Reserve Currency Dying By Suicide - New Global Financial System Arising

Common Sense Commentary: Knowledge is power. Arm yourself with correct information and use it honestly, scripturally to your advantage and God's glory. Education is only as good as the information being consumed. Feed on God's word. It filters out false information and absorbs truth.  Knowledge equips us to understand the past and anticipate the future. So listen and learn what is happening in the world that you might be prepared for the unexpected future. RB

Proverbs 11:9  "....Through knowledge shall the just be delivered

Proverbs 24:4   And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. 

Isaiah 33:6   And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times....."

Daniel 12:4   But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Abuse. Deceit. Extortion. Not exactly great ways to win friends and influence people.

Santiago, Chile

In July 1944, just weeks after the successful Allied invasion of Normandy, hundreds of delegates from around the world gathered in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to determine the future of the global financial system....

The vision was simple: America would be the center of the universe, and every other nation would revolve around the US.
This arrangement ultimately led to the US dollar being the world’s dominant reserve currency which still remains today.
Whenever a Brazilian merchant pays a Korean supplier, that deal is negotiated and settled in US dollars.
Oil. Coffee. Steel. Aircraft. Countless commodities and products across the planet change hands in US dollars, so nearly every major commercial bank, central bank, multi-national corporation, and sovereign government must hold and be able to transact in US dollars.
This system provides a huge incentive for the rest of the world to hold trillions of dollars worth of US assets-- typically deposits in the US banking system, or US government bonds.
It’s what makes US government debt the most popular “investment” in the world, why US government bonds are considered extremely liquid “cash equivalents”.
As long as this system continues, the US government can continue to go deeper into debt without suffering serious consequences.
Just imagine being totally broke... yet every time you want to borrow money there’s a crowd of delighted lenders eager to replenish your wallet with fresh funds.
This may be the US government’s #1 advantage right now.
You’d think that they would be eternally grateful and take care to never abuse this incredible privilege.
But no… not these guys.
In fact, they’ve done the exact opposite. Over the last eight years the US government has gone out of its way to eliminate as much of this benefit and alienate as many allies as possible.
They’ve abused the trust and confidence that the rest of the world placed in them by racking up record amounts of debt, waging indiscriminate wars in foreign lands, and dropping bombs on children’s hospitals by remote control.
They’ve created absurd amounts of regulations and had the audacity to expect foreign banks to comply.
Plus they’ve levied billions of dollars worth of fines against foreign banks who haven’t complied with their ridiculous regulations.
(Last week, for example, New York state financial regulators fined a Taiwanese bank $180 million for not complying with NY state law.)
And they’ve threatened to banish any foreign banks from the US financial system who don’t pay their steep fines.
Abuse. Deceit. Extortion. Not exactly great ways to win friends and influence people.
It’s as if Barack Obama pulled together the smartest guys he could find to make a list of all the ways the US government would have to screw up in order to lose its enormous financial privilege… and then he went out and did ALL of them.
The US government is practically begging the rest of the world to find an alternative to the US dollar and US banking system.
Even the government of France, a key US ally, called into question continued US dominance of the global financial system after the US government slammed French bank BNP Paribas with a $9 billion fine.
There have already been some attempts to displace the United States in the financial system.
China has been aggressively setting up its own competing financial infrastructure, something called the China International Payment System.
It’s been a slow start for the Chinese, but they’re building momentum. Though I’m not sure China is the answer in the long run.
While banks around the world may not care for the long and strong arm of the US government, the Chinese government doesn’t exactly inspire trust either.
But now there really is an alternative. Technology.
Ripple, a blockchain-style protocol that’s funded by Google Ventures (among others), is now being utilized by international banks to send and receive transactions directly.
The way international bank transfers work now relies exclusively on the US financial system.
Large foreign banks have what’s called a “correspondent account”, typically at a major US bank like JP Morgan, Citibank, etc.
A correspondent account is essentially a bank account for other banks. Our
company holds funds at a bank in Singapore, for example, whose US dollar correspondent account is at Bank of New York Mellon.
Foreign banks’ US dollar correspondent accounts are typically at major Wall Street banks because that’s the epicenter of US dollar transactions.
So when a bank in Australia sends US dollars to a bank in South Africa, that payment actually flows from the Australian bank’s correspondent account in the US to the South African bank’s correspondent account in the US.
The entire transaction effectively takes place using the US banking system.
Again, this gives the US government enormous power over foreign banks. Any foreign bank that doesn’t do what Uncle Sam commands can be excommunicated from the US banking system.
And without access to the US banking system, a foreign bank will be unable to transact in US dollars, and hence unable to conduct any global business.
This is a death sentence for a bank. The US government knows this and has been blackmailing global banks for years.
But now technology is providing another option.
Banks don’t have to use the US banking system anymore; they can send real-time payments internationally using the Ripple protocol. [Video]
Two months ago a Canadian financial services company sent the first-ever institutional cross-border payment to a German bank.
This isn’t some wild theory or conjecture. It’s actually happening.
Just this morning a group of 15 banks in Japan signed up to start using Ripple, and dozens of banks plan to use the protocol within the next six months.
The technology is cheaper. Faster. Superior. And it doesn’t come with any US government strings attached.
So it seems Uncle Sam may have finally shot himself in the foot for the last time.
Until tomorrow,
Simon Black

Freedom Of Speech For Conservative Constitutionalists Will Be Strangled Oct. 1

Common Sense Commentary: Take a look at the rulers of Africa, the Middle East Muslim nations, the European Union, Asia, South and Central America. These, mostly corrupt, mostly anti-Christian, global leaders, with many dictatorial powers, will now be able to shut down Conservative Bloggers, Facebook Conservatives, control content of email and deny anyone they wish from using the Internet. It has remained mostly free because the United States had control of it and our Constitution gives the users Freedom of speech World-Wide. It is certain that within the year, bloggers like me, UTubers and all political Videos, with disallowed content, will be shut out. The Internet has become my primary outlet for ministry. It isn't as if I have been caught by surprise. I have expected Obama to do something like this since he couldn't get away with shutting down Conservative preachers and writers himself... in America... so he laterals the ball to the foreign opposition of free speech. Another reason we must not let Hillary win this election. She would swear she wouldn't have done such a dumb thing, but still let it proceed as Obama has set it in motion. She will do the same with ObamaCare and the Obama emasculation of our U.S. Constitution. God deliver us from this tyranny.  RB

Obama Giving Our US World-Wide Webb Internet To Power Addicts, Dictators, Enemies To Control Free Speech Here & Globally

This From BreitBart News

President Barack Obama is determined to give away control of the Internet within two months — one of the worst blunders in the history of national security, economic policy, and the fight for liberty generally.

In the wake of the embarrassing revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) was spying on foreign leaders, the Obama administration announced plans in 2014 to shift control of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) from the U.S. to a multilateral body.
Under the supervision of Obama crony and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker — a billionaire heiress and campaign bundler with no technological experience, and a history of failure in the subprime loans industry — the administration has ignored critics of the plan. They point out that transferring control of domain names to a body like the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) could leave autocratic nations like Russia, China, and even Iran in charge of the world’s most important free medium.
Breitbart News noted in 2014:
U.S. control of domain names has guaranteed freedom of speech and commerce across the Internet, against the strenuous efforts of countries like China and Iran to suppress Internet traffic and content. In addition, victims of international terror have found potential relief in U.S. courts by suing to seize the domain names of countries like Iran in lieu of direct compensation. Without U.S. control, those victims would have no possible recourse.
The Republican-controlled House passed legislation in 2014 to defund the ICANN transfer, and in 2015 to provide Congress with a 30-day period to review it when it happens. Earlier this year, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) introducedthe Protecting Internet Freedom Act to prevent the transfer without Congressional approval.

But while the bills have been debated, the administration has moved ahead, the Washington Examiner reports, with transfer scheduled Oct. 1.

An Unintended Consequence Of Fed Policy For A Cashless USA

Smuggling and barter are wrong only if its not my starving child being fed by it.

Common Sense Commentary: It seems that every unthought out, new, Democrat policy ends up causing more national damage than any perverted "good" they intended. It reminds me of a Dust Bowl, Roosevelt Socialist, I knew as a boy, who never could remember which side of the mule or horse to mount or dismount. He would almost invariably try to mount on the animal's right side and get his left leg kicked again. Why is that? Because all horses are trained to be mounted from the left. That tradition dates back many years to when soldiers carried their swords on the left side in order to grab it with their right hand. To mount from the right with the sword on the left, it would get in the way of your swing over left leg. If you are going to ride the horse you had better learn how to mount.

That ole West Texas leftest , trying to mount on the right, got his left leg kicked enough times that he limped on it the rest of his life. He didn't do it intentionally, he just couldn't learn from his mistakes and kept trying to do the same old wrong things right, which Democrats are given to do over and over and over again.

So this idea of big government, tax and regulate, bring everybody but them to an equal state of poverty, is being forced upon us by Liberal Socialists. They want everybody using digital forms of money like credit cards and cell phone apps. to buy and sell. They want to do away with cash money so nobody can buy or sell anything except where there is a digital, paper trail recorded to be used by the IRS and can be used against the taxpayers.

What they apparently aren't anticipating, but will continue to force the installation of a totally digital financial system, is the rampant use of barter, swap, trade and various forms of exchange it will cause. That is already happening to a growing extent in places like Los Angeles and by laborers, flea market and road side sellers who insist on cash rather than check or credit card. I noticed on the TV show, American Pickers, one of the buyers emphasized the fact he was paying in cash, as a bargaining leverage. The seller knew exactly what that was worth to his advantage....15 to 30% ... no record, no tax.

There already is a huge underground economy in the USA. It will become immense if cash is killed. We'll be back to the pre revolution days when America used barter, and foreign money, and which we will also use, in addition to whatever is left of American coins and cash currency as well as bullion gold and silver. I'll do this for you if you will do that for me... labor exchange.

Even if the gov. stops printing cash currency, much of that which is already in circulation will continue to be used for years, including coins, especially silver coins, in bartering between individual traders for goods and services.

The idiots have really messed up that greatest financial system in human history....

One Of The Most Amazing Stories About 9-11... 15 Years Ago This Sunday

The events of September 11, 2001, put two F-16 pilots into the sky with orders to bring down United Flight 93. Late on that Tuesday morning of September 11th, Lt. Heather "Lucky" Penney was on a runway at Andrews Air Force Base and ready to fly. She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders, "Bring down United Airlines Flight 93." The day's fourth hijacked airliner seemed to be hurtling toward Washington. Penney, one of the first two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop it. "I genuinely believed that was going to be the last time I took off," says Maj. Heather "Lucky" Penney, remembering the September 11 attacks and the initial U.S. reaction. The one thing she didn't have as she roared into the crystalline sky was live ammunition…. or missiles…. or anything at all to throw at a hostile aircraft…. except her own plane. So that was the plan. Because the surprise attacks were unfolding, in that innocent age, faster than they could arm war planes, Penney and her commanding officer planned to fly their jets straight into a Boeing757. "We wouldn't be shooting it down. We'd be ramming the aircraft," Penney recalls of her charge that day. "I would essentially be a kamikaze pilot." For years, Penney, one of the first generation of female combat pilots in the country, gave no interviews about her experiences on September 11 (which included, eventually, escorting Air Force One back into Washington's suddenly highly restricted airspace). But 14 years later, she is reflecting on one of the lesser-told tales of that endlessly examined morning: How the first counterpunch the U.S. Military prepared to throw at the attackers was effectively a suicide mission. "We had to protect the airspace any way we could," she said last week in her office at Lockheed Martin, where she is a director in the F-35 program. Penney, now a major but is still a petite blonde with a Colgate grin, is no longer a combat flier. She flew two tours in Iraq and she serves as a part-time National Guard pilot, mostly hauling VIPs around in a military Gulfstream. She takes the stick of her own vintage 1941 Taylor craft tail-dragger whenever she can. But none of her thousands of hours in the air quite compare with the urgent rush of launching on what was supposed to be a one-way flight to a midair collision. First of her kind! She was a rookie in the autumn of 2001, the first female F-16 pilot they'd ever had at the 121st Fighter Squadron of the D.C. Air National Guard. She had grown up smelling jet fuel. Her father flew jets in Vietnam and still races them. Penney got her pilot's license when she was a literature major at Purdue. She planned to be a teacher. But during a graduate program in American studies, Congress opened up combat aviation to women and Penney was nearly first in line. "I signed up immediately," she says. "I wanted to be a fighter pilot like my dad." On that Tuesday, they had just finished two weeks of air combat training in Nevada. They were sitting around a briefing table when someone looked in to say a plane had hit the World Trade Center in New York. When it happened once, they assumed it was some yahoo in a Cessna. When it happened again, they knew it was war. But the surprise was complete. In the monumental confusion of those first hours, it was impossible to get clear orders. Nothing was ready. The jets were still equipped with dummy bullets from the training mission. As remarkable as it seems now, there were no armed aircraft standing by and no system in place to scramble them over Washington. Before that morning, all eyes were looking outward, still scanning the old Cold War threat paths for planes and missiles coming over the polar ice cap. "There was no perceived threat at the time, especially one coming from the homeland like that," says Col. George Degnon, vice commander of the 113th Wing at Andrews. "It was a little bit of a helpless feeling, but we did everything humanly possible to get the aircraft armed and in the air. It was amazing to see people react." Things are different today, Degnon says. At least two "hot-cocked" planes are ready at all times, their pilots never more than yards from the cockpit. A third plane hit the Pentagon, and almost at once came word that a fourth plane could be on the way, maybe more. The jets would be armed within an hour, but somebody had to fly now, weapons or no weapons. "Lucky, you're coming with me," barked Col. Marc Sasseville. They were gearing up in the pre-flight life-support area when Sasseville, struggling into his flight suit, met her eye. "I'm going to go for the cockpit," Sasseville said. She replied without hesitating, "I'll take the tail." It was a plan ….. and a pact. 'Let's go!' Penney had never scrambled a jet before. Normally the pre-flight is a half-hour or so of methodical checks. She automatically started going down the list. "Lucky, what are you doing? Get your butt up there and let's go!" Sasseville shouted. She climbed in, rushed to power up the engine, screamed for her ground crew to pull the chocks. The crew chief still had his headphones plugged into the fuselage as she nudged the throttle forward. He ran along pulling safety pins from the jet as it moved forward. She muttered a fighter pilot's prayer ..... and followed Sasseville into the sky. They screamed over the smoldering Pentagon, heading northwest at more than 400 mph, flying low and scanning the clear horizon. Her commander had time to think about the best place to hit the enemy. "We don't train to bring down airliners," said Sasseville, now stationed at the Pentagon. "If you just hit the engine, it could still glide and you could guide it to a target. My thought was the cockpit or the wing." He also thought about his ejection seat. Would there be an instant just before impact? "I was hoping to do both at the same time," he says. "It probably wasn't going to work, but that's what I was hoping." Penney worried about missing the target if she tried to bail out. "If you eject and your jet soars through without impact..." she trails off, the thought of failing more dreadful than the thought of dying. But she didn't have to die. She didn't have to knock down an airliner full of kids and salesmen and girlfriends. They did that themselves. It would be hours before Penney and Sasseville learned that United 93 had already gone down in Pennsylvania, an insurrection by hostages willing to do just what the two Guard pilots had been willing to do: Anything, and everything. "The real heroes are the passengers on Flight 93 who were willing to sacrifice themselves, "Penney says. "I was just an accidental witness to history." She and Sasseville flew the rest of the day, clearing the airspace, escorting the president, looking down onto a city that would soon be sending them to war. She's a single mom of two girls now. She still loves to fly. And she still thinks often of that extraordinary ride down the runway a decade ago. "I genuinely believed that was going to be the last time I took off," she says.

Oh, and one other thing about that F-16 pilot .....That commercial airliner she was supposed to bring down on Sept. 11, 2001? It turns out her father could well have been one of the pilots.
When we chronicled the little-told Sept. 11 history of Maj. Heather “Lucky” Penney, one of the first fighter pilots in the air over Washington that morning, we knew that she and Col. Marc Sasseville had been ordered airborne out of fear that a hijacked plane was heading to the capital. We knew that in the scramble, they had to launch without live ammunition or missiles. We knew they were prepared to ram that 757, at the likely cost of their own lives as well as those of everyone on board.
What we didn’t know until Penney’s mother e-mailed us, with a request to mail a copy of the story to her in Colorado, was this additional Penney-family fact about that day: “We were thankful that Heather was able to put her emotions aside and not even consider that her father might have been flying on United 93,” Stephanie Penney said as an aside in her e-mail.
How’s that?
“Yes, John [Penney] was a captain for United Airlines at that time,” she elaborated later by phone. “He flew 757s and had been flying trips into and out of the East Coast the month before. Heather would not have known for sure that her dad wasn’t the captain on United 93.”
No, Heather Penney hadn’t mentioned that the extraordinary “kamikaze mission” she was ready to execute that day might well have been directed at a plane that carried the man who had once tucked her in, driven her to school and taught her to love fast airplanes.
“This sounds cold-hearted; I mean that was my daddy,” Penney said from Reno, where she and her father are flying for separate teams in the annual Reno Air Races. “But, frankly, there was no way for me to know, and it would not have changed what I needed to do at all.” Washington Post

Self Delusional, Political Drug Of Choice: Hocus Pocus Hopeium

Otherwise Known As "Hope And Change"

Common Sense Commentary: A ruse common among the Nazis during their rounding up of Jews, in Europe, during their Holocaust days, was to tell those poor Jews, to keep them docile, encouraging words of "Hope" such as .... "Please take with you only those things you will need for your health comfort and sanitation". But in the Concentration Camps they were worked to death, their gold teeth knocked out, their clothing accumulated and their bodies burned in the ovens for a total of approximately 6 million victims. The various Communist regimes used the same sham of "false promise words of hope" in the elimination of upward of 100 million internal enemies of the st ate. Even serial killers use this kind of false hope to keep their victims under control...."I won't hurt you if you do as I say".

These things are a matter of historical record ... so google it and read it for yourself. If dictators and
governments have done such horrific things to their own people in the past, it is not unthinkable that governments, presidents, politicians and bureaucrats might also make false promises, agreements and contracts with their constituents in order to buy their loyalty, co-operation and votes to stay in office.

I once knew a man who constantly made new promises to his son, never kept one of them, but kept making other promises... for years, until the son was grown... and still believed the new promises. its a common human blindness in comprehension.

It is undeniable that our government and most other governments have made promises and contracts with the people which, in time, will be recognized as false.... too late.

Here is an article reported by Kitco News, describing a Citi Bank study of government retirement promises which are completely unrealistic and unfulfillable.

Thursday March 17, 2016 
(Kitco News) - Twenty of the world’s wealthiest countries are facing a $78 trillion pension loss, Citi Bank said in a report on Wednesday. 

The bank found that for 20 countries belonging to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the total value of unfunded government pension liabilities, money owed to public sector workers, is $78 trillion. The number is almost double other government debts for these same nations of around $44 trillion. 

If the liabilities of social security and public sector worker underfunding are added as a form of 'contingent debt’, total global government debt may be three times as large as people currently think it is. Whatever the calculation used, the numbers are staggering,” the bank said. 

“The world faces a retirement crisis,” Citi added. “However, solutions - and opportunities - are available if governments and corporations take steps to begin addressing the issues. These conversations and actions need to happen now.” 

Countries in the study include the U.S., Canada and Australia but it is the European countries facing the biggest challenge, the bank noted. Germany, France, Italy, the U.K., Portugal and Spain have an estimated public debt-to-GDP ratio of over 300 percent. 

"Government services, corporate profits, or retirement benefits themselves will have to be reduced to make any part of the system work. This poses an enormous challenge to employers, employees, and policymakers all over the world," the bank said in the report. 

My Comment:

The above Citibank study claims these debt totals only include 20 OECD countries but the U.S. debt alone is $19 Trillion in actual borrowed money plus an estimated $211 Trillion in unfunded liabilities like Soc. Sec., Medicare, Medicaid etc. If those amounts sound feasible, consider the fact that the official estimated value of our entire nation is only $94 Trillion. In Citibank's own words, above, they confess ... “If the liabilities of social security and public sector worker underfunding are added as a form of 'contingent debt’, total global government debt may be three times as large.... "

So, after Citibank describes this totally impossible situation, they then make the Hocus Pocus Hopium claim ...“However, solutions - and opportunities - are available if governments and corporations take steps to begin addressing the issues. These conversations and actions need to happen now.” No, "now" is too late. It should have been done 25 or 30 years ago.

Their addition of "corporations" in this last quote means heavier, much heavier taxes on corporations, but our government has already, by world's highest taxes, driven many corporation out of our country. Besides that, if they owned and sold all of the corporations in the U.S. it wouldn't be enough to pay the interest on our government debts.

So the obvious question is, "How are they ever going to pay those promised pensions?"

The obvious answer is, "They aren't" and the obvious reason is, "They can't". The money has been spent on wasteful, unproductive, counter-productive programs. Neither are they going to pay any of their other debts with today's dollars. The only thing they can do is continue the huge "counterfeiting" farce of pumping out more and more trillions of dollars until the whole thing collapses into itself and causes the worst inflation in world history. So "Don't keep your savings in paper", said the wise man.

The system is bankrupt and vast sums have been purloined, grafted and misspent. So most people are now living day to day, financially, being pacified on the steady stream of government "hocus pocus hopium" and are in for some life altering, cold turkey DT's

That is why so many Americans have turned to Donald Trump. They want a brass knuckles, belligerent, street fighter who will fight the insane injustice, beat it down, arrest it and throw it in prison. 

A friend of mine was debating the dilemma with a federal employee who kept insisting, "Pensions will never fail, not ever, because they have a contract". Yeah, right. RB
