Trump Orders EPA Review of “Horrible” Obama Water Decree

Hope springs eternal for two reasons; the citizen and the leadership provided by Donald Trump. If we, the citizen, refuse to be silenced and shoved to the back of the bus, and instead rally behind Donald Trump’s leadership, we may yet prevail. This uplifting article highlights how President Trump by undermining the Waters of the United States E.O. (WOTUS) with the stroke of his pen frees up immense economic activity while protecting our sacred property rights. Read this encouraging article by clicking on this link.

 

GOP Wants to Eliminate Shadowy DOJ Slush Fund Bankrolling Leftist Groups

This article explains how the Obama regime, after fining American companies massive amounts of money, “encouraged/incentivized” those same companies to “donate” upwards of 3 billion dollars to Leftist activist organizations. Keep in mind two things. This money should have gone into the U.S. treasury to lessen the burden on the taxpayer. Second, these companies must recover the “donated” money from somewhere. One guess as to where they might find this money. Yup, you. By charging you higher prices for their goods and services theses companies restore their bottom line. This is not a victimless crime. We, the American people are the victim. To learn more click on this link.

Suggestion: Call you U.S. Representative and Senators and encourage them to support James Lankford (R. Oklahoma) who introduced the Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017, and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R. Virginia) who submitted similar legislation in the house. 

There is also a larger bill attempting to address the $83 billion in fees, fines, and other revenue independent of the appropriations process being addressed by U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R. Ala.). This bill would take away control of these revenue streams from the bureaucrats in the various federal agencies and return control of the funds back to the Congress. The bill is known as the Agency Accountability Act (H.R. 850). These bills should go a long way towards reducing the abuse by the Obama Administration.

 

Trump’s Cabinet picks signal shift in priorities Fox News!

We have a new President-elect who is putting together a powerful cabinet full of extremely knowledgeable, successful individuals. Individuals who, in most cases, will take one (or more) of the pieces of Agenda 21 policy and throw it on the scrape pile of history.

It would be easy for those not knowledgeable about Agenda 21 to think those against Climate Change are anti-environment. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are pro-environment but not at the price of our personal or economic freedoms. Too many environmental regulations result in the taking of money out of the pockets of the average citizen; money which may be needed to pay the mortgage, feed the kids, etc. These regulations also often compromise our constitutionally guaranteed property rights. A balance must be struck; one that balances the needs of the planet against  the needs of the people who live on the planet.

Watch this video to decide for yourself if Rick Perry, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Energy, and Ryan Zinke, Trump’s Pick for Secretary of Interior, will strike the right balance between the environment, economics, and energy, by clicking on this link.

And then there is Scott Pruitt, Trump’s Pick for the EPA. Pruitt is an opponent of manmade Climate Change along with its onerous regulations and a proponent of fossil fuels. Please watch this short video produced by CNN. Note, the points made by CNN in this video are presented in a way that would make their liberal base upset at this pick, but in contrast the video makes me want to find Scott Pruitt and give him a great big old hug!

Donald Trump Comes Out Against Obama’s United Nations Internet Takeover

What’s at Stake in the 2016 Presidential Election?  Many things, including the loss of our freedom of speech? Freedom of speech has been under attack by the Progressives for a very long time. Tactics used to undermine the right of Americans to speak freely include political correctness, multiculturalism, and regulations like the attempt scheduled in early October 2016 to give control of the internet to entities outside of the U.S. If control of the internet is given into the hands of multinational corporations and the United Nations, conservatives in the United States and around the world who wish to speak out against globalism will experience a whole new level of censorship.  To read more, click on this link.

Obama and Hillary Exploit Murdered Cops to Federalize Police

Likely you are all too aware of the Black Lives Matter movement. If you believe the folks, who participate and support this so-called social justice movement, are justified, perhaps you should do some research on the topic. A good place to start is to read Heather MacDonald’s book, The War on Cops. You might also do some thinking about the long term ramifications of this movement.

What happens to the law abiding folks in the most crime-infested areas of our society if the police are unwilling to enter those areas or, if once they enter those areas, they choose to ignore the criminal activity? Making the police afraid to enter these neighborhoods will not make the minority community a better nor safer place to live. Then again, if you are the Progressive Democrats trying to convince the minority community that they are victims of a racist police force, and that your political party is the only one that sees it and cares, it is a total winner at the ballot box. If minority folks in minority communities die, that is just the price that must be paid for “progress”.

However, there is more at play in the Black Live Matter movement than solidifying a voting block for the Progressive Left. To read how the Black Lives Matter movement will destroy local control of our police departments, as the feds continue to federalize yet another piece of America, click on this link.

Hilary’s America-the Secret History of the Democratic Party (movie and book)

What makes Dinesh D’Souza’s movie, Hilary’s America, so very important is that, except for the history buffs among us, many of us never properly learned our American history, or have long since forgotten what we once knew. Without an accurate understanding of the origins of the Democratic Party, all of us, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, are working under false beliefs that the current Democrat party has convinced us to be true. These false beliefs in turn drive terrible voting decisions. PLEASE, if you have not been to this movie, go and, if possible, take your family and friends. To learn more about this move, click on this link.

Note: there is also a book version of the movie.

United States Corp of Engineers vs. Hawkes Supreme Court Case

As you likely know, the EPA is attempting to gain permission to implement the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. This rule, which is an extension of the Clean Water Act, would put virtually all water in the United States under the control of the federal government. That means the federal government can come onto your property and tell you what you can do or cannot do with your pond, your stream, your ditch that occasionally holds water, or your wetland  that just happens to contain peat which you sell to provide money to care for your family.

Worse yet, if the EPA or the Army Corp of Engineers come onto your property and makes a decision to take control of your property(that is called a jurisdictional determination, and the Army Corp makes 54,000 of them a year!), up until now the property owner had no recourse.

Fortunately for all of us, when the Army Corp of Engineers made a jurisdictional determination on the Minnesota peat bog owned by Kevin Pierce of the Hawkes Co., Inc., Pierce was unwilling to roll over and give up control of his property without a fight. To learn more about this important court case and the resulting Supreme Court Case victory, please read the short article and two short video by clicking on this link.
