George Soros: Jewish, Nazi Collaborator Against Jews

Common Sense Commentary: I have thought for years that George Soros was simply and evil man, but the recently revealed video below has adjusted my opinion of him. George Soros is an Atheistic progressive creation of the spirit of Antichrist. The first version of him was as a fourteen year old Jewish boy, whose wealthy father sold him to a Nazi official to be raised as the official's (counterfeit) "Christian" nephew, in order to spare George from the Nazi ovens. The Nazi official trained him to help him confiscate Jewish property and ship his own people, penniless, to the death camps. This weird, inhumane transition from Jewish boy into a tool in a Nazi monster's hands, created what has become a dispassionate, enemy of all but financial profit and his own one world agenda. George is probably the single such case in human history, and, according to him... has no regrets or guilt at what he did to his own Jewish people. He is a mechanical, money making machine without human emotion, strengths or weaknesses. He requires only digital money, power and comfort. He began as a human being, but seemingly morphed into a feeling-less, unbelieving, self perpetuating, inanimate, machine thing programmed to do what he does. I know that isn't possible, but it has that appearance when you study his life.  His net worth is estimated at $25 billion dollars which he uses to advance the establishment of a one world, Atheistic, Socialist government controlled by Fascists. I'm sure he doesn't realize it but he and dozens of other world billionaires are doing the work of Antichrist. RB

A Classic: Newt Gingrich Explains Trumpism

There are graces he doesn't have, but two big ones 
he does have ... Common Sense and Courage

Common Sense Commentary: Trump, with all his bluster, boasting, hyperbole, funny hair and sissy way he makes a point with his fingers, has climbed the big ladder of financial success by his use of plain old Common Sense. Every job he takes on, the first thing he does is seek out the the smartest, motivated and experienced people in that new job's field of experts and puts them in charge. The second thing he does is avoid all areas of government bureaucracy and maneuvers the project around, over or under the thousands of government hindrances to private enterprise and raw efficiency. Then, he oils the rails, jacks up the action, revs the engines down the run-way and takes the thing off like a 747 in a hurry and lands it at its destination under budget and ahead of schedule. Of course, he can't avoid the vile Democrat obstructionists and Republican prima donas in Congress. They are the villains, spoiled brats and clowns in this failing opera company of star sopranos, grieving divas and conniving directors. You can be sure the left-wing Democrats (100%), and envious Republicans (25%) will join hands and hearts to derail Trump's sincere effort to save this country. But they better remember Trump is not only his name but his method, and his history tells me his detractors and enemies will be trumped in this card game and he has half the country standing around the table with black-jacks, concealed carry and they ain't happy with the cheatin been goin on around here.

Personal Choices Are Primary In Determining Our Future

This blog is sent out to a large mailing list and is on Facebook and Twitter, not just to you.

Common Sense Commentary: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Gal. 6:7. 

This is one of the most important lessons of life. When you come to realize this and let it realign your thinking and change your way of living so that you sow good seed in all that you do, your life will not only please God but benefit you in this life and the next. My desire with this blog is to improve myself, and inform and motivate you, with scriptural truths, to a better way of living by following our Lord's teachings.

I was just searching my mind for a new application for God's  rule of sowing and reaping, and found it... A retired, envious "Liberal" on welfare, medicaid, SSI, and food-stamps asked his fellow, retired house painter, a Conservative, how much money he had stored up. The Conservative answered, "What I have stored up is lifetime emergency medical care for my wife and me, a modest comfortable home, nutritious food, trips to visit our children, a weekly tithe, and enough to help others in a crisis." "Well, Old Money Bags," mocked the Democrat, "how much real money is that?" "The same amount you earned and spent on luxury cars, boats, expensive vacations, entertainment, movies, lawn care, eating out, beer, whisky and cigarettes... Any more questions?" (This comparative illustration just came to mind. It is not a true story. It is, however, true, at its core, in the attitudes and actions of literally millions of real life cases. There are. of course, exceptions)  As I see it after 86 years of observation .... RB

Jesus told of a young man, in Luke 15:13, who "...Wasted his substance with riotous living" and awoke one day to find himself penniless, destitute and in need of charity to survive. Is that you?

Wise King Solomon compared a lazy, negligent man to a great waster... "He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster." Prov.18:9.  Are you either of those?

The day we stop taking up the slack, growing mentally and spiritually, and improving our way of thinking, is the day we reach the zenith of our lives and start down to the end of it.

Some Problems Have Grown Beyond Remedy

Most of the political leaders in the world have spent their nations into a corner between a rock and a hard place... Default or Inflate.

Common Sense Commentary: There are some problems, created by idiots, so insurmountable that no amount of Common Sense, or the best of people, can make it right. God can solve any problem, but He doesn't do it for greedy idiots. Greedy idiots have to suffer the consequences of their actions. The shame is, the innocent also suffer from the errors of the wicked. That is America today....

As of now, the end of 2016, our U.S. Federal debt, in outstanding Treasury instruments, reflecting actual money borrowed from other governments, banks and individuals, is 19 Trillion dollars. That is 19 thousand thousand million or 19,000,000,000,000 dollars.... a stack of dollars bills from here to the moon or 10 times around the earth. And that doesn't count the approximately 100 to 200 Trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare etc. etc. Social Security is "unfunded" because the S.S. fund has been spent and replaced with an IOU note.

Since the elections, the interest rate on debt has increased 0.8%, (less than 1%). But just that little bit amounts to an extra interest expense of $160 thousand million in the theoretical case that our US government refinances just that "extra" on a 10 year term. So, who is going to pay that extra fractional increase on debt? We can't even pay the debt that was already strangling us. Since other nations don't want any more of our mammoth, accumulating debt, and knowing our politicians and the Federal Reserve, they will probably just keep printing digital money, to loan U.S. banks at no interest, so they can keep on buying all that additional debt till hell freezes over. Then, as they all skate across this hellish, thin ice, the banks, having earned a huge arbitrage of percentage loaning out those trillions they borrowed at no interest, will just give those digital treasury notes back to Uncle Sam and thus pay us Tax Payers what they borrowed.  Every 1% raise in the interest rate equals 200 Billion in added interest per year on Federal debt ... forever. The big rotten spot in that apple is, every new dollar the Fed counterfeits makes your dollar worth less. They like to call it "inflation" and claim it doesn't exist, but every time you buy something, you know it does exist. And besides losing your money's buying power, you and I are still responsible to pay off the debt, Uncle Sam has borrowed, in future taxation. Oh, well, I'll be dead by then and beyond the IRS Tax Collector's reach ... There are no taxes in Heaven, thank God, so you younger citizens will have to deal with it, and may God have mercy on your poor souls. My generation, a greedy, sorry majority, did it to you. I apologize to you for not fighting it harder.... but I drew the line on  killing all the  Democrat and half of the Republican politicians.

I am afraid I must tell you that neither Trump nor anyone else, except God, can solve our national debt quagmire. He can default on it or inflate our money and pay off debt with counterfeit green paper that will be worth about one cent per dollar. There is just one thing Trump can do to live up to his promise to "Make America Great Again". That one thing is to restore the gold standard jerked out from under our U.S. money August 15, 1971. Since that date, our money has neither silver, gold nor any other commodity of value backing it up. All it has is our government's word that it is worth something. It is, since 1971 nothing but fiat green paper. It was made Fiat, by the decree of an official  authority, Richard Nixon. It seemed to make sense at the time because with the U.S. dollar as the World Reserve Currency, tradable for U.S. reserve gold, and other nations had begun trading dollars for our gold and rapidly draining our National Gold Reserves, we were taken off the Gold Standard. That released Congress the restraint of each dollar having to be worth a set amount of gold. Trump could restore the Gold Standard and make each federal ounce of U.S. gold in Fort Knox and New York worth the proportional number of currency dollars and digital dollars in existence worldwide.

If the U.S. has the 8000 tons of gold in reserve storage vaults, the Fed claims, that would make each ounce worth many times what it costs today, and enough to pay our National Federal debt. Since our reserve gold hasn't been audited since President Eisenhower did it last, only the elite insiders of government know if it is still even there. 

China, Russia and India, in that order, are now buying all of the gold being produced, worldwide, at a price below the cost of production. Now why do you suppose that it. 

A few people have asked me where I get my information. I read a lot and try to confirm the facts supporting my conclusions by googling it. I put little confidence in the Left-wind fact checkers, but I nearly always find the truth of the subjects of my blogs. RB

Tech Developing A Mirror Image Brain/Personality In Robot

Common Sense Commentary: My thought that the "Image of the beast" in (Rev.13:15) may be a Robot with a Computer brain programmed with the "image and likeness" (agenda, philosophy and desires) of the beast (world system) of the Antichrist, seems conformable to continuing developments in both fields.  I suspect it is Antichrist's computer programmed world view of a world system concentrated in a robotic brain. "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." Rev.13:15.

Below is a Russian Billionaire who is funding the creation of just such a speaking, thinking, acting image monstrosity of himself, which he hopes will let him "live forever". All is a huge physical counterfeit of a spiritual reality. As Satan has counterfeited every other holy thing of God, he is now working on a counterfeit Human  and a counterfeit eternal life. Though eternal life cannot be successfully reproduced, in counterfeit, the effort could lead to an "image of the beast" containing a mental and mirror likeness of the Antichrist, plus be programmed with all the other important, accumulated knowledge of world libraries and information already computerized. A seemingly ideal plan for running the whole world from a robotic computerized brain. A brain whose powers of decision making, based on the world's knowledge and information, but expertly programmed to eliminate contradictions of false information or which conflicts with Antichrist's world vision. Such a super computerized, beastly machine, constantly improving and updating itself, could function a thousand years .,.. Except he will only have seven from the Rapture to the end of the Tribulation Period, before Jesus returns to set up His own Millennial Kingdom. This replicates, with added hi-tech improvement, a first such effort by the builders of the Tower of Babel.  Ham, one of the three sons of Noah, stepped out of the Ark and fathered the dwellers of Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as the Canaanites, Jebusites, Amorites, Cush, also those of Nineveh and finally the man Nimrod. He it was who led in the futile effort of building the Tower Of Babel as a means of reaching heaven. It was another Luciferic heresy of conquering God and taking over His throne. The Lord let the tower builders continue until they had no doubt expended years of energy and wealth, but had also grown in knowledge, power, experience and unity. Then He confused their common language and hindered their increasing expansion, power and accumulated knowledge... That stopped them temporarily but, in the last days knowledge shall again be increased. Daniel prophesied that in "the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4

Back when the Babylonians grew in extraordinary knowledge, power and arrogant ambition to climb up into the presence of God, He saw it as an act of audacious egotism and an in your face threat against all that is holy, so He put a stop to it.

"And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." Gen.11:6. In these words, the Lord reveals the almost unlimited power of human knowledge and possibility. He created us in His own image and likeness, which includes a lesser portion of knowledge, power and presense in the image and likeness of His own  infinite Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence.

Media Mogul Dmitry Itsoknv Plans 
To Live Forever By Uploading His 
Personality To A Robot

By Kate Palmer, business reporter

Money can buy you immortality, according to the Russian internet multi-millionaire who is ploughing a fortune into a project to create a human that never dies.

Web entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov is behind the “2045 Initiative”, an ambitious experiment to bring about immortality within the next 30 years by creating a robot capable of storing human personalities.

The group of neuroscientists, robot builders and consciousness researchers say they can create an android that is capable of uploading someone’s personality.

Mr Itskov, who has made a reported £1bn from his Moscow-based news publishing company, is the project's financial backer.

"Different scientists call it uploading or they call it mind transfer. I prefer to call it personality transfer" - Dmitry Itskov

They believe that robots can store a person's thoughts and feelings because brains function in the same way as a computer.

It would work by uploading a digital version of a human brain to an android – effectively rebooting a person’s mind – which would take the form of a robotic copy of a human body or, once technology has developed, a hologram with a full human personality.

Dmitry Itskov says his group of scientists and robot-makers can make immortality a reality within three decades Dmitry Itskov says his group of scientists and robot-makers can make immortality a reality within three decades Mr Itskov, who at 35 has amassed a fortune from his Internet media firm New Media Stars, says he is “100pc sure it will happen”.

He told BBC Horizon in a documentary that airs Wednesday: “If there is no immortality technology, I’ll be dead in the next 35 years.”

The project’s first step is to create a robot that can be controlled using the mind.

Erik Sorto, who was shot and paralyzed from the neck down at the age of 21, can now control a robotic arm with his mind, thanks to sensors implanted in his brain Erik Sorto, who was shot and paralysed from the neck down at the age of 21, can now control a robotic arm with his mind, thanks to sensors implanted in his brain The documentary-makers travel to California, where a quadriplegic Californian man, Erik Sorto, is attempting to control a robot arm with his thoughts.

“The ultimate goal of my plan is to transfer someone’s personality into the new artificial carrier,” Mr Itskov told the Horizon documentary, writes The Sunday Times.

“Different scientists call it uploading or they call it mind transfer. I prefer to call it personality transfer.”

Companies Want to Replicate Your Dead Loved Ones With Robot Clones
Written by 



In 2003, the wife of a 55-year-old Vietnamese carpenter named Le Van died. Heartbroken, he dug up her grave, cast her body in clay and slept next to "her" for five years. The story is unsettling, but there’s also something universal about his struggle to let go. Many grieving people feel an emotional connection to things that represent dead loved ones, such as headstones, urns and shrines, according to grief counselors. 

In the future, people may take that phenomenon to stunning new heights: Artificial intelligence experts predict that humans will replace dead relatives with synthetic robot clones, complete with a digital copy of that person's brain. 

“It’s like when people stuff a pet cat or dog. We don’t stuff humans but this is a way of ‘stuffing’ their information, their personality and mannerisms,” said Bruce Duncan, managing director of Terasem Movement, a research foundation that aims to “transfer human consciousness to computers and robots.” 

The firm has already created thousands of highly detailed “mind clones” to log the memories, values and attitudes of specific people. Using the data, scientists created one of the world's most socially advanced robots, a replica of Terasem Movement founder Martine Rothblatt’s wife, called Bina48, which sells for roughly $150,000. 

Rothblatt, who is also transgender and the highest paid female CEO in America, spearheaded the project to create a digital replica the human brain. She used her wife, Bina Aspen, as an early prototype, installing the real Bina’s “mind file” into a physical robot designed to look like her. 

Made of a skin-like rubber, Bina48 was created using more than 100 hours of audio data recorded by the human Bina about her memories and beliefs. Like the real Bina, the robot “loves” flowers, has mocha-colored skin and a self-deprecating sense of humor. She makes facial expressions, greets people and has conversations (including some awkward ones), made possible with facial and voice recognition software, motion tracking, and internet connectivity. 

Bina48 still has some social glitches, but she’s a working proof of concept—the firm’s almost-charming poster girl for the techno-immortality movement. She’s example of how, in the future, the wall between biological and digital worlds may come crashing down, Duncan said. “The definition of ‘alive’ may even evolve to mean, ‘as long as your essential personal information continues to be organized and accessible,” he said. A more advanced version of robots like Bina48 could hit the market within 10 or 20 years for roughly $25,000 to $30,000 for variety of uses, including replicating dead loved ones, Duncan predicted. “It will seem new because the technology will be new. But the desire to keep in contact with someone after he or she passes away isn’t new,” he said. “Anthropologically, we’ve been projecting personhood onto inanimate objects for hundreds of years.” “Think of it this way,” he added. “When the compass was invented, we were suddenly able to traverse the world in a whole new way. But the compass isn’t responsible for giving us wanderlust.” At least 56,000 people have already handed over information to create mindfiles, a web-based storage space for preserving “one’s unique and essential characteristics for the future,” according to Lifenaut, a branch of the Terasem Movement that gathers human personality data for free. The goal is to capture a person’s attitudes, beliefs and memories and create a database that one day will be analogged and uploaded to a robot or holograph, according to the Lifenaut website. Everything down to a person’s mannerisms and quirks can be recreated.Some users simply like the idea of living forever. Others want to document themselves as a part of human history. Some hope to pass on an artistic project or genealogical information to offspring. Fewer will use it to “memorialize” and “communicate with” the dead, Duncan said.His firm isn’t the only company plugging into the idea of AI clones. Last year, Google filed patent papers for a product that could replicate a specific human’s personality, including that of “a deceased loved one” or a “celebrity.”The patent describes a cloud-based system in which a digital “personality” can be downloaded like an app. “The robot personality may also be modifiable within a base personality construct to provide states or moods representing transitory conditions of happiness, fear, surprise,” the patent papers state. “The robot personality [will be] sharable across a number of robots in varying locations.”The patent also states the robot’s mood could shift and its personality could evolve over time. A Google rep declined to comment new developments. But new patent papers were filed in mid-February, indicating the project is moving forward. 

Tech giants may be throwing their weight at the concept — but similar projects have failed before. Six years ago, the now-defunct company Intellitar launched a digital clone promising users “virtual eternity,” and the ability to communicate with a person’s digital self after death. Users uploaded photos, voice samples and personality tests to create an “avatar” brain for $25 a month. But the startup shut down after two years, in part, because it pulled in only 10,000 customers. 

If the idea sounds familiar, maybe that’s because it has inspired popular science fiction, including an episode of the British sci-fi drama Black Mirror. In the chilling episode, titled “Be Right Back,” a woman orders a digital replacement of her dead boyfriend through an online service. Later, she upgrades to a synthetic robot clone of him, and sex, emotional dependency, and creepiness ensues. 

In real life, there's an actual demand for robot reincarnation, grief experts say. “People find grief to be a painful, even excruciating experience. If this is a way to ease that pain, it will be attractive to people,” said Robert Zucker, a grief counselor and author of The Journey Through Grief and Loss. 

But like relying too heavily on prescription pills, it may not be a healthy way to cope. “There’s something tremendously problematic about it,” said Zucker. “It seems driven by fear, a desire to numb pain and make the world not feel sorrow. We would be deluding ourselves.However he added, “There are many ways of grieving that are strange and extreme. As long as it doesn’t inhibit that person from moving on with his or her life in a healthy way—maybe it could work for somebody.” 

Tech experts admit it will probably take decades before robot reincarnation becomes socially acceptable. “It may take a generation or two for tech like ‘mindfile’ to evolve into a more mainstream form of memorialization,” Duncan suggested. 

The concept isn’t that far from current ways we use technology to remember the deceased, he claimed. “People think nothing of watching videos of important past events in our lives like weddings and birthdays. It's quite possible that, socially, it'll become more and more acceptable to engage with digital personas of past people in more dynamic and interactive ways,” Duncan said. 

But scientists may never fully capture the essence of a human being, Zucker contended. "There's more to a person than their intellect and experiences. There's a spiritual aspect.” 

Ultimately, we should embrace the things that make us human—even pain, said Zucker. "If people believe they can skip over grief, they’re losing an opportunity. It teaches us about life and love. And it’s part of the human condition.”

Our Conservative 100 Day Plan To Restore Our Freedoms

We Must All Do Our Share In This Battle
Soros, Clintons and Obamas are "going about seeking whom they may devour".

Common Sense Commentary: So what else would you expect the Liberal Democrat Socialists and Communists to do when suddenly they lose power to change our country into an all powerful, big government, police state? Apologize, lay down and quit trying? No, their primary funder, George Soros calls them together to undermine and stop Trump and Conservative Constitutionalists from restoring what the Democrats have been destroying for the last eight years. The real fight has just begun. If we do not strike now, when we have the Presidency and both houses of Congress, we will never get another chance. So we dare not think we have saved America from the immoral and political heresy the Democrats have installed in Washington, the court system and Federal Agencies. We have only succeeded in keeping the Clintons our of the Oval Office and a few of their stripe out of the Senate and Legislature. We must all act together, quickly and decisively to take advantage of our momentum, get Conservative Constitutionalists in the Supreme Court and other Judgeships nationwide. We must keep the abortionist, unisex bathroom, gay marriage and unwilling to work crowd off balance and keep pushing right to life, right to privacy, right to work and the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans under the Constitution. Don't dare quit talking, writing, voting and fighting, if necessary, to restore our Country to greatness and secure justice for Christians as well as every other citizen. RB

Soros Bands With Donors To Resist 
Trump ...... And Take Back Power

Major Liberal Funders Huddle Behind Closed Doors With Pelosi, Warren, Ellison And Union Bosses To lLck Wounds And Retrench ....

This once again underscores how organized and manufactured this effort to undermine Trump and Congressional Republicans is.  Even if we stop them from stealing the election, it is clear they will use every dirty trick to try and stop the implementation of our conservative agenda.  We cannot allow them to prevail.

We here at CCC PAC won't be intimidated and we won't back down.  When liberals tried to stop Governor Scott Walker and the Republican legislature in Wisconsin from implementing his reforms we stepped up and helped defeat their efforts which included protests, recalls, threats to lawmakers and more.

That is why we are launching our 100 Day Plan to push through the conservative reforms on the federal level we promised voters we'd support should the GOP achieve an Election Victory.  Our 100 Day Plan includes the following:

 Repeal and replace the harmful ObamaCare debacle.

* Abolish Barack Obama's illegal executive amnesty for illegal immigrants.

* Cancel all federal funding for "Sanctuary Cities."

* Promote a series of middle class and business tax cuts.

* Undo all of the Obama-Clinton roadblocks to the Keystone Pipeline.

* Push through the confirmation of a constitutional conservative Supreme Court nominee.

* Restore funding to the rebuilding of our military and national defense.

Democrats are going to howl and scream and do everything they can to obstruct our agenda.  That's what these left-wing protests are all about.

Being Elderly Gets Old: The Other Option Gets Embalmed

Common Sense Commentary: And time marches on till the last grain of sand falls and the last click of God's time clock.

At 86, another birthday is a bore except in my case it is Christmas Eve. I'll take all the birthdays God will give me ... it's kind of a verification I'm still in the land of the living.  If being young is a waste of stamina. Being old is a waste of experience. "Getting old" is another way of saying living longer".
Being elderly gets old: The other option gets embalmed or cremated. I don't mind getting old or even dying, but I'm glad embalming and cremation are justice against the Christian's sinful flesh not his born again soul. Not so with the unsaved. It really doesn't matter whether this old, troublesome flesh turns to dust or ashes, for the Christian, it has a new birth of glory coming, at the resurrection, which will adorn its born again spirit perfectly. So you who are young, take care of your temporal body but concentrate your care more on your eternal soul and spirit, your relationship with your Creator.
This reminds me of something I remember from long ago ....

Concerning age, kids think in fractions... "I'm 4 and a half going on 5". Never "36 and a half going on 37". Teens live in the future ... At 13 they are "going to be 16". The greatest age in life is when you "become 21". You have survived childhood and adolescence and are finally a real person. But, then you "turn 30". Makes you sound like bad milk ... "He turned ... so we threw him out." Then, after a lifetime you "reach 50" ... Hopes and dreams for wealth, success and fame gone with the winds of time. But, in spite of your feelings of failure, you "make it to 60." By then you have built up so much speed you suddenly "hit 70". After that its day by day. You "hit Tuesday", then you "hit Wednesday". In your 80's you "hit 4:30" and "reach bedtime". As fast as I am now aging, I expect to crash through my 90's and be in flight through my hundreds ... right into eternity ... with a smile on my face ... thanking God I didn't have to live on this earth 150 or 1000 years. I'm satisfied to be just 89 ... Is this still 2019... what time is it? Where am I ?  Oh well, eternal youth is on its way to this old man. Its a certainty... by grace through faith in Jesus.

The Informed 'Right' Know Electoral College Is A Life Boat

Common Sense Commentary: For you Patriotic Conservatives who believe in the Constitution: If our Founders, the Framers of the U.S. Constitution were so right, with God and good reason, on everything else in the instrument, doesn't it stand to reason that their inclusion of the Electoral College is equally right? If it were not for the Electoral College provision, the large city, welfare states, which support drug addicts, prostitutes, petty thieves, the lazy, and gang banger families, would rule the nation perpetually, and we would never again elect a Conservative Constitutionalist as president. The Constitution keeps us afloat, including the Electoral Provision. Defend it, our national lifeboat in every storm.  RB


Article II
Section 1. The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
The Congress may determine the Time of choosing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

Then, voting rights or the Electoral College are referenced in the Amendments 12, 14, 15, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26  of the Constitution.


Here is Bill O'Reilly on the Electoral College reported by BIZPAC Review.

Bill O’Reilly: The Left wants white power taken away

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said there is a deeper, darker reason behind cries to scrap the Electoral College, and it has to do with race in America.

Clinton’s popular vote win was due entirely to the turnout in large, Democratically-controlled metropolitan areas such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Trump, on the other hand, won America’s heartland.
“Even though Secretary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million, the progressive state of California provided all of that margin,” O’Reilly said in his “Talking Points Memo” Tuesday.
He observed that “if the Electoral College were abolished, presidential candidates could simply campaign in the nation’s largest states and cities.”
This is exactly what the left wants because the minority vote in these areas is predominately Democratic.
In such a scenario, “you don’t really have a national election, do you?” he said. “You have targeted populations.”
And for this reason, Democrats believe white, working-class voters — those that Trump easily won over — should be marginalized. It’s another “white privilege” argument.
“Talking points believes this is all about race,” he said. “The left sees ‘white privilege’(so called)  in America as an oppressive force.”
O’Reilly took his argument even further.
“The heart of liberalism in America today is based on race,” he said, “white men have set up a system of oppression.” (They say)
The left wants to fundamentally change how things are run in America — “Taking voting power away from the white precincts is the quickest way to do that,” O’Reilly concluded. (The question is, will you Patriotic Conservatives continue to vote for Constitutional candidates? RB)

Cavalier, Executive Order Obama, Gives Trump Advice

Whatever you do ... don't do this ...

Common Sense Commentary: The CPB (Corporation for Public Broadcasting) was established by Democrat President Lyndon Johnson. It now has a combination for excellent content plus a "behind the curtains" left-wing agenda tainting everything it airs. Between the two branches, NPR and PBS, government funds nearly half a billion dollars in support annually. The programming it airs is like antifreeze .... it looks good and tastes sweet but is deadly for human consumption. Here is a sample of NPR propaganda using the Cavalier, wise old wizard of the abused, Executive Order Cult, Barack Obama, advising Trump of the dangers of Executive Orders. They are obviously trying to head off Trump from using Executive Orders to wipe clean Obama's massive messy use of them in by-passing Congress to force his Left-Wing agenda.

Obama turned to executive actions and regulations on a number of big issues like labor, climate and immigration — where Congress had blocked his agenda. It's something Republicans have decried. Some call the president "lawless" for going around the legislative branch.

Transcript And Video: NPR's Exit Interview With President Obama POLITICS Transcript And Video: NPR's Exit Interview With President Obama In an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep airing on Morning Edition, Obama made it clear it's not the approach he preferred. "My suggestion to the president-elect is, you know, going through the legislative process is always better, in part because it's harder to undo," Obama said.

It's a lesson weighing on his mind as Trump's incoming administration has vowed to reverse many of the steps Obama took through executive order and administrative rules.

"Elections mean something"

The Obama administration's efforts to increase overtime pay, curb the carbon dioxide emissions of power plants and protect people living in the country illegally from deportation are all suddenly vulnerable.

That's something Obama said he accepts: "If he wants to reverse some of those rules, that's part of the democratic process. That's, you know, why I tell people to vote — because it turns out elections mean something."

Here Is What Donald Trump Wants To Do In His First 100 Days POLITICS Here Is What Donald Trump Wants To Do In His First 100 Days Obama told NPR that Trump is "entirely within his lawful power" to sign new executive orders of his own. "Keep in mind, though, that my strong preference has always been to legislate when I can get legislation done. In my first two years I wasn't relying on executive powers because I had big majorities in the Congress and we were able to get bills done, get bills passed. And even after we lost the majorities in Congress, I bent over backwards consistently to try to find compromise and a — a legislative solution to some of the big problems that we've got."

Obama pointed to immigration, saying he "held off for years in taking some of the executive actions that I ultimately took in pursuit of a bipartisan solution." He was referring to a big immigration reform package that was crafted by a bipartisan group of senators and passed the Senate in 2013, only to be stalled in the House with objections from conservatives, in particular to the "path to citizenship" that the bill would have provided for many in the country illegally.

The White House promised at the start of 2014 that it would be a "year of action" after being frustrated by Congress, particularly since 2011 when Republicans took control of the House and had enough votes in the Senate to sustain filibusters.

"I've got a pen, and I've got a phone," the president said at the time, as Republicans accused him of turning his back on bipartisan solutions.

Obama signed sweeping executive orders in 2014 that shielded millions of people living in the country illegally from facing deportation.

"If House Republicans are really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, the best solution to that is passing bills," he said then. "Pass a bill. Solve a problem."

In June, a deadlocked Supreme Court ruling effectively killed one of those immigration orders, which shielded about 4 million people from deportation.

Hate Calling The Hated Hateful

Common Sense Commentary: The pot calling the kettle a big fat black pot.

Defending the Union from threats foreign and domestic

Obama to Southern Whites: You Just Hate Me Because I’m Black.

Barack Obama is a man who has gained everything and learned nothing. How is it possible that a man who has experienced quite possibly the highest quality of life and accomplishment in this amazing country can be so ignorant and bitter? This is a man who has received free Ivy League educations, personally met with countless celebrities, heroes and world leaders, traveled the world in luxury, and had the honor of serving as Commander in Chief, the leader of the free world. It truly is a shame that as he heads out the door he can’t help but make an ass out of himself. 

During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, soon to be former President Barrack Obama offered his explanation regarding southern state's opposition to him: 

“I think there’s a reason why attitudes about my presidency among whites in Northern states are very different from whites in Southern states,” Obama told Zakaria. “Are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign? The other.. Are those who champion the ‘birther’ movement feeding off of bias? Absolutely.” 

Absolutely? How about, that is absolutely insulting you smug, ignorant jerk. How is it possible that this man was ever going to ‘heal’ our nation with poisonous rhetoric like that? I think the question here is whether Barack Obama truly thinks this or if he simply believes it’s politically beneficial to continue stoking racial fires as a means of attacking conservatives. Maybe it’s both. The fact of the matter is that the majority of ‘southern whites’ are not racist, we’re conservatives, and conservatism is a belief system that opposes everything Barack and his Marxist tyranny represents. 

In other words… it’s the ideas, stupid. 

Has Barack forgotten that in my own state of South Carolina we have elected – multiple times now – the very popular Governor Nikki Haley? It doesn’t get much more ‘foreign’ than an Indian born woman, Barack. Say, which party is she in? Oh yea, the Republican party. I guess we were willing to overlook our deep seated racial hatred to get some tax cuts and patriotism. Or maybe it was never about race at all? Perish the thought. 

In this very same state, we southern whites (and the rest of us who prefer to simply be known as Americans) have elected with overwhelming enthusiasm a black man to the Senate by the name of Tim Scott. He is a solid conservative, a patriot, and a decent, honorable man who never uses his skin color as a political weapon. Scott also has an 89% rating at Conservative Review. Gosh, if he was only a white guy he’d be at 100%, right? Wrong. That’s moronic. But what is my opinion worth to Barack Obama.. I’m just a southern white guy. I’m to be dismissed. 

Only racist bigots who see the world as nothing but biased interactions between different skin colors and ethnic groups thinks this way, and that’s exactly what Barack Obama is. 

A bigot.

Founding Fathers' Electoral College Concept Was Right

California Is The Proof Of It ....
Trump won the national popular vote, until California was counted

The real question is, do the Democrats play by the rules of our Constitution or not.

This from Market Watch Dec. 19, 2016

Opinion: Hillary Clinton supporters need to 

quit whining about the Electoral College

Shocked and appalled by the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, some supporters of Hillary Clinton have turned to minimizing and even delegitimizing Trump’s election. In an era of severe political polarization, in an election with two candidates seen from the outset in highly unfavorable terms, after the most brutal campaign in modern history, and with an outcome that astonished just about everyone, these reactions are understandable, but wrong.
Many diehard Clinton supporters cannot bring themselves to believe their candidate could lose to Donald Trump. They think: How could such a crude and inept con man be elected president? Even after it has happened, it is unthinkable, a nightmare. So, the election must not have been fair.
Those on the fringe raise the specter of diabolical Russians hacking away at our democracy. More grounded Clintonians have less malevolent bogeymen — our Founding Fathers. As they see it, the election’s outcome should be blamed on a dysfunctional and archaic electoral-vote system. Hillary won the national popular vote. She should be president. It is as simple as that. The Electoral College should go the way of Trump University.
They are right about one thing: Clinton did win the popular vote, by some 2.8 million votes, as the most recent data show.
Yet Clinton has only 232 electoral votes (in 20 states plus Washington, D.C.) to Trump’s 306 (in 30 states plus one from Maine), making him the president-elect. So Trump’s election without a popular-vote plurality is regarded as an injustice. Some Democrats claim a moral victory as victims of an electoral-vote system that once again horribly “misfired.” Their claim, however, neglects two facts.
First, had the election been conducted with rules awarding the presidency to the popular-vote winner, the candidates and many voters quite probably would have acted very differently, and the popular vote might not have been the same. Trump and Clinton would have campaigned in the “safe” states. Potential voters in those states would have felt more pressure to turn out and to vote for “the lesser of two evils” and not to waste their votes on third-party candidates. Some additional Clinton voters would probably have shown up, but gains on the Trump side would probably have been larger as more reluctant Republicans would have been pushed to return to the fold, particularly in big blue states like California, New York and Illinois.

In short, a comparison of the national popular vote as cast and the electoral-vote division is no simple matter. This is particularly true in our age of pervasive polling in which people should have a good idea about whether they live in a state where their presidential vote might make a difference.

Second, Clinton’s popular-vote plurality over Trump depends on the votes in a single state: California, which single-handedly turns a Trump plurality into a Clinton plurality.

The electoral-vote system in 2016 (as in 2000, when George W. Bush became president despite losing the national popular vote) functioned as its defenders have long claimed. It prevented a single region (in this instance, a single state) from overruling the verdict of the more populous and diverse nation.

Donald Trump’s election is difficult for many Americans to accept, but there is no good reason to question its democratic legitimacy. For better or worse, Trump won the presidency by constitutional and sensible democratic rules that guided both campaigns and were known to any politically conscious citizen. He also won the national popular vote cast outside of the single state of California. Moreover, Clinton won all of California’s 55 electoral votes despite the fact that 4.3 million of the state’s voters voted for Trump. That big winner-take-all advantage for California’s Democrats and Clinton was certainly felt, but it wasn't enough to override her losses in many other states.

Under our electoral-vote system, American voters elected a national president, not California’s choice. It is in the nation’s interest for Democratic Party’s leaders and for Clinton voters to fully recognize the legitimacy of the election as they had urged Trump to do after the third presidential debate.

The Electoral College system worked as it should. It did not “misfire.” The election’s outcomes were ultimately about what Americans wanted and what they did not want — not about electoral mechanics.

Now You Know: Voting Irregularities Were By Democrats

Common Sense Commentary: How is it I already knew the Democrats would try to rig the election? They've been doing it for years! Unless there is heavy punishment, they will continue to do it.
Republicans won this time, but next time... they may not. If they do not improve under Trump, it won't matter.  Here is the tangled mess in just Detroit's Democrat precincts. RB

Records: Too Many Votes In 37% Of Detroit's Precincts

Detroit’s voting irregularities spur state audit

Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.

The Detroit precincts are among those that couldn’t be counted during a statewide presidential recount that began last week and ended Friday following a decision by the Michigan Supreme Court.

Democrat Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly prevailed in Detroit and Wayne County. But Republican President-elect Donald Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes or 47.5 percent to 47.3 percent.

Overall, state records show 10.6 percent of the precincts in the 22 counties that began the retabulation process couldn’t be recounted because of state law that bars recounts for unbalanced precincts or ones with broken seals.

The problems were the worst in Detroit, where discrepancies meant officials couldn’t recount votes in 392 precincts, or nearly 60 percent. And two-thirds of those precincts had too many votes.

“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t normal,” said Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers.

State officials are planning to examine about 20 Detroit precincts where ballot boxes opened during the recount had fewer ballots than poll workers had recorded on Election Day.

“We’re assuming there were (human) errors, and we will have discussions with Detroit election officials and staff in addition to reviewing the ballots,” Thomas said.

The Detroit News last week was first to report that more than half of Detroit would be ineligible for the recount because of the irregularities. The results were based on county reports obtained by The News.

The new report, compiled by Wayne County elections officials, sheds light on the extent of the problems and shows a systematic tendency toward counting more votes than the previous Wayne County report, which didn’t specify if precincts had over-counted or under-counted ballots.

Republican state senators last week called for an investigation in Wayne County, including one precinct where a Detroit ballot box contained only 50 of the 306 ballots listed in a poll book, according to an observer for Trump.

City officials have told state officials that ballots in that precinct were never taken out of a locked bin below the voting machine tabulator on Election Day, said Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams.

“That’s what we’ve been told, and we’ll be wanting to verify it,” Woodhams said. “At any rate, this should not have happened.”

The state is not calling the audit an investigation, “but based on what we find, it could lead to more,” he said.

City Clerk Janice Winfrey and Elections Director Daniel Baxter did not return multiple messages.

State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton, called the planned audit “a good place to start” that could help determine whether Detroit elections workers “followed the correct procedures” or “fraudulent procedures” on Election Day.

Whether a poll book mismatch suggests there are too few or too many ballots in any given precinct, “it’s concerning,” said Colbeck, who spearheaded the request for probe. “It’s supposed to reconcile to zero.”

It’s unclear how many votes were added in Detroit. That’s because county officials have not tabulated how much the ballots were off in precincts with discrepancies of at least five votes.

Of the data available, though, machines tallied at least 388 more ballots, according to a Detroit News analysis of the records. That’s 0.16 percent of the 248,000 ballots cast in the city that voted for Clinton 95 percent to 3 percent over Trump.

Trump's Cabinet Picks Are Amazingly Well Chosen

 Dispite Democrat Donkey Droppings  (Common Sense Commentary)

There are no limits to the Democrat's lies, accusations and excuses for losing the election. First, the Liberal polls declared Hillary would win handily, then, when she lost, they blamed the Electoral College which has been perfected and in use over 200 years. Then the Elite Media blamed red neck, ignorant, racist, homophobic, macho men. Then they demanded a recount, which put Trump even further ahead. So now Hillary blames the Russians and Obama blames China. Next they will blame Little Orphan Annie. How any sensible, honest American can call themselves a "Democrat" is beyond comprehension ... unless you believe in a real Devil "going to and fro in the earth". 

In my opinion, and the opinion of Red, White and Blue Americans, Trump has already appointed the absolute best of the best candidates, available in the nation, to his cabinet, based on their record and experience ... not on political payoffs or on his personal friendships. Rex Tillerson is the latest example of Trump's wisdom... in spite of his infamous narcissism. He is way ahead of the game in trying to make America great again in a Liberal atmosphere of Media bias, Democrat obstructionism and impossible odds that any human being can stop a national trainwreck which is already near the 
crash site. RB

Trump's Secretary of State pick: What every American should know about Rex Tillerson

Trump has done it again.  Bang.   Another fascinating, deep, insightful choice – Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.  What should every American know about this selection?  A few things they may not have heard yet. 

Exxon’s Chairman and CEO, Rex Tillerson is another novel choice, as edgy in diplomacy as he is proven in business.  What do we know about Tillerson?  What does what we know tell us about Tillerson’s prospects for diplomatic success?  Much and much.  First, an engineer by trade, he is an accomplished manager.  That is two legs up on most of the State Department. 
Tillerson has managed Exxon’s holdings in Russia and the Caspian Sea for almost two decades.  That alone suggests potential negotiating depth needed to resolve the Ukraine/Crimea problem with Russia, emphasis on economic variables and mutually agreed geopolitical and sovereignty considerations.  The wider world would celebrate it – as Americans should. 
What else is knowable and what might it mean for American diplomacy?  Tillerson’s age and depth in global “big picture” and “big power” sensitivities may, in fact, dovetail exceptionally well with former General Officers likely to lead Defense, Homeland Security, and the National Security Council.  Those who have been around the block, albeit in different directions, tend to know the block.
Tillerson’s ties include time with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Business Roundtable and Business Council, which augur in favor of balance when it comes to preserving pro-American international trade relationships – and avoiding any sudden tips toward runaway protectionism.  He is obviously close to Russia, but in an age where strains and miscommunication have been the hallmark of American diplomacy, with Russia and the world, there is room for improvement in that relationship, as there is with others globally.
And here is another unheralded bonus.  Anyone who has spent time on the 7th floor of the U.S. State Department (and I have), knows that being Secretary of State is about one-on-ones, personal and unblinking, detailed and bilateral connectivity.  That is how you get results in diplomacy, whether on that floor or flying around the world. 
John Foster Dulles used to command attention – and get significant results – with presence and wit, focus on person and detail.  Colin Powell did the same thing.  One-on-one is where proverbial rubber meets road, where trust forges agreements, and the agreements do not get broken. 
Said Dulles, “A man’s accomplishments in life are the cumulative effect of his attention to detail.”  Said Powell, “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.”  Tillerson is cut from that same cloth, combining those exact qualities – verified by his life’s work.  More to the point, where he has served other shareholders to now, we are all about to become the shareholders – all Americans – that he serves.  How about that?  
The downside, if any, is that he will not know the knotty, peculiarly intractable and unavoidably political world of the State Department – or the way in which that ungainly department interacts – and must – with Congress.  That said, anyone who can lead an enterprise the size of Exxon, can recruit the necessary leadership to run State. 
Perhaps most splashy, his salary will drop to 1/145th of the Exxon salary, if he accepts any government compensation.  It will plummet from $27.2 million dollars annually (without other package elements) to $186,600 annually.  Odds are, he will leave that drop unnegotiated – signaling a new era in government service and diplomacy.
What is the take-away from this savvy appointment?  A new professionalism is in the air – and it’s about time.  Whatever friction he may encounter in the wind tunnel of change, he is likely to do well, and bring a perspective not often seen in the Capitol.  

Robert Charles is a former Assistant Secretary of State for George W. Bush, former Naval Intelligence Officer and litigator. He served in the Reagan and Bush 41 White Houses.  He writes widely on national security and law.
