January, 2019, Part 2, Political Class Insanity: Government Workers Get No Pay But Congress Does, Fleeing Illinois, and More Math Stupidity From Ocasio-Cortez

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let’s get started:

1) As you all probably know, Trump and the Democrats in Congress have been locking horns about whether or not to build a wall along the Mexican border to better protect Americans from criminal elements coming across the border. Their fight and standoff has resulted in the shutdown of major portions of the Federal government from a budget perspective, the funding of a border wall.

So even though Congressional Democrats have caused the shutdown, these politicians are still getting paid. Even though thousands and thousands of Federal employees are staying home without pay because of the Federal government shutdown, the Democrats in Congress are still getting paid. Even though 54,000 Customs and Border Protection agents are still protecting the country and enforcing current immigration laws, they are not getting paid but Democrats in Congress are still getting paid.

U.S. Border Patrol Council President Art del Cueto described the injustice: "The people that are causing this shutdown like Chuck [Schumer] and Nancy [Pelosi], they're still getting paid. Yet we have men and women that are very dedicated to defending our borders out there now that they don't know when they'll receive another paycheck."

To add insult to injury, not only is Democrat Nancy Pelosi still getting paid but she is out vacationing in Hawaii while thousands of Federal employees are not working and not getting paid during the holiday season. Very, very bad optics but indicative that Washington politicians generally do not care about Americans, only about themselves.

2) Politicians never seem to understand that as they raise taxes higher and higher, the results get worse and worse. Years ago the state of Maryland raised taxes on families earning over a million dollars a year. A few short years later the state government was receiving less tax money from families earning over a million dollars a year despite the higher tax rate. Rich people have the resources to avoid high taxation and politicians never understand this basic fact: higher tax rates usually result in low tax collections.

The state of Illinois is learning this reality the hard way:
  • Illinois has lost 157,000 residents to other states in the past five years.
  • Over this period the state raised tax rates on just about every possible tax on the books.
  • It has lost residents for five straight years with the rate of loss accelerating every year.
  • Just in 2018 alone the state lost 45,000 residents.
  • On average, an Illinois resident leaves the state every 4.6 minutes.
  • As residents leave, fewer and fewer kids are born to in state adults, resulting in a long term trend of fewer and fewer citizens.
  • In fact, according to the Illinois Policy Institute, “Since 2011, Illinois has seen an 8.8 percent decline in births. That’s the fourth-worst slide in the nation and more than twice as severe a decline as the average state. Births still outpace deaths. But the margin is getting smaller every year.”
  • The number one reason for leaving is high taxes, according to a poll where half of those polled said they wanted to leave the state in 2018, and their number one reason for wanting to leave is high taxation rates.
  • Given that the state government has one of the worst pension problems, a declining population level means fewer and fewer taxpayers to pay more and more to support retiring state employees and bigger and bigger pension liabilities.
  • To put the problem in perspective, losing 157,000 residents is equivalent to having the fifth, fourth, or third largest city in the state vanishing.
Higher taxation is never an answer to out of control spending by state or Federal government politicians, a lesson that they sadly find impossible to learn.

3) Politicians are almost always bad at math and common sense when it comes to taxes and just about any other government program. Probably just about any government program that has been implemented over the years as ALWAYS overrun its budget. For example, the “Big Dig” in Boston, a system of underground highway tunnels and roads was supposed to cost a few billion dollars but eventually cost over $20 billion.

And a newly elected member of Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is sure to add to that tradition of either being math ignorant or math devious, lying about a government project cost in order to get it approved, the future increased expenditures be damned. For example, she is a big advocate of the sham known as “Medicare For All.” This program would add about $3.2 TRILLION to the annual Federal government budget, basically doubling the taxation rate for every American and costing about $32 TRILLION in the first ten years alone.

Two obvious questions arise from this math insanity: 1) are you willing to pay twice as much in taxes and trust that the Federal government would do use that additional tax hit efficiently, given its failure in every other failed attempt to operate healthcare efficiently (Medicare, Medicaid, Obama Care, Veterans Administration)? And 2) if the initial estimate out of the gate is a doubling of taxes, what do we think the REAL number would eventually be? If the Big Dig is any indication, the final number would be increasing our taxes by about sevenfold.

But Ocasio-Cortez, someone who has no experience in healthcare, is not done doing silly math, or no math, having jumped on the bandwagon called the “Green New Deal,” something else she has no experience in, the energy industry, but has expensive fantasies about. The Green New Deal would force the country to become 100% reliant on only renewable energy sources within in two decades. 

We have already shown how stupid this concept is in California, a state that is dedicated to being 80% renewable energy driven by 2030. The math, while simple, is very powerful:
  • The Boston Clean Air Task Force estimates that for California to reach just 80% of its energy from renewable energy sources, 9.6 terawatts hours of electrical storage would be required.
  • Using today’s technology, 9.6 terawatt hours of storage would require the installation of 500 million Tesla Powerwall electricity storage units.
  • These Tesla units cost $6,000 which means that 500 million of them would cost $3 TRILLION, a cost that does not include installation costs and maintenance.
  • This cost would average out to about $75,000 per Californian, i.e. the cost of such a project would cost over a quarter million dollars for a family of 4 in the state.
  • Even if the cost eventually came down 80%, the cost per resident would still be $15,000 each not including installation and maintenance costs.
  • As a side note, where would one put 500 million storage units, that is a a lot of land that would be needed, an additional major cost.
  • Thus, a California family of four would be on the hook for about $60,000 if the cost of this law’s impacts could be reduced by 80%, more than $60,000 if the cost did not come down that much.
The math in California does not work, something that California politicians did not do or are unable to do. And as always with Ocasio-Cortez, the math does not work for her “Green New Deal” either:
  • If the above California numbers are right and California has about one eighth of all U.S. citizens, then the cost of making the entire country’s energy come from renewables would be about eight times the California cost or $24 TRILLION. 
  • This cost does not include the cost of installing renewable energy sources for the entire country, maintaining those energy sources over time, the environmental cost of massive new mining, manufacturing, and transportation of raw materials and finished products, the cost of millions and millions of birds being killed by massive numbers of new windmills, the economic cost and environment cost of covering untold millions of acres of land in solar panels, etc.
  • And most importantly the lost economic opportunities for America with little impact on the environment. 
  • While the taxation on Americans would sky rocket for such folly, the rest of the world would continue to pollute and throw carbon into the air. 
  • We have previously discussed how China and India alone have plans for over 2,500 coal burning plants under construction or planned. 
  • We have already discussed the reality that less than ten countries have met their Paris Climate Agreement targets of carbon reduction. So folks like Ocasio-Cortez would throw a $24 TRILLION cost burden on Americans with little or no impact on climate change. Pure insanity.
One other little math lesson, Ms. Ocasio-Alexandra: your Green New Deal would cost about $24 TRILLION, your Medicare for All program would cost $32 TRILLION in the first ten years, for a total of $56 TRILLION. On top of that let’s not forget the $109 TRILLION in national debt and unfunded government liabilities that exist, bringing the total $165 TRILLION. This total does not include your plans for free college tuition and free housing which would add to the $165 TRILLION total.

Since the total sum wealth of every American is about $88 TRILLION, this grand total of at least $165 TRILLION would be equivalent to about twice the total wealth of every American. In other words, the country would have to have twice as much wealth than it has today just just to fund the debt and grandiose and stupid plans you have. Do the math.

So politicians shutdown the government but still get paid while ordinary Federal workers do not, people are leaving Illinois in droves to avoid ever higher taxes, and math insanity from a newly elected person who wants to overhaul health care and the energy sector and has zero experience in either field, an ignorance compounded by minimal math skills. It does not get any more insane than that. More political class insanity to follow.

January, 2019, Political Class Insanity, Part 1: Two Senators Crushing the First Amendment and Every Congressional Person Wasting Our money for Stupidity

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let’s get started:

1) For the almost three hundred years that this country has been around, two things have been constant. First, the First Amendment, which includes freedom of religion, has been sacred. Second, judges have been appointed to bench positions based on their judicial experience, expertise, and education. It is a system that has worked fabulously from a freedom perspective.

But two U.S. Senators would like to destroy that tradition and tenet of our society:
  • Brian Buescher is a candidate to be appointed to the Nebraska District Court.
  • He happens to be Catholic, which is certainly allowed under the First Amendment.
  • As a result, he also participates in the activities of a Catholic charity.
  • But because of his religion, U.S. Senators Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris feel he may not be impartial and suitable for this position in Nebraska, not because he is not legally qualified but because of his religion.
  • According to the Catholic News Agency: “In written questions sent to Buescher by committee members Dec. 5, Sen. Hirono stated that “the Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions. For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage.””
  • Unbelievable that in this day and age having an opinion and exercising your First Amendment rights can get you grilled and lambasted by members of Congress, just for being of a particular religious faith.
  • Specifically, Hirono asked Buescher if he would quit dealing with the charity, a charity that does many, many noble and good things for their communities, if he was confirmed “to avoid any appearance of bias.”
  • Fortunately, Buescher gave a great answer, the proper answer, a much more ethical and proper answer than Hironon had the gall to ask: “If confirmed, I will apply all provisions of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges regarding recusal and disqualification.”
This type of political overreach clearly smacks of a totalitarian regime where “think like I think or be ostracized” is the way of life. The Constitution, and other long standing legal and judicial procedures to ensure freedom and non-bias, have been in place and have been in place long before Hiron and Harris came to Congress. Maybe they should have examined them and read the Constitution before making such dangerous statements and taking such anti-freedom positions.

2) Over the years we have spoken many times about how the Federal government has wasted our hard earned tax dollars on absolutely useless and stupid efforts. The government once spent over half a million dollars on building a video game which simulated prom week. The government spent hundreds of thousands of dollars estimating exactly when dogs became man’s best friend. The list is endless but expensive, wasted tax dollars that:
  • Could have been used to help homeless, hungry, or drug addicted Americans or
  • Could have been used to pay down part of our $22 TRILLION deficit or
  • Could have been returned to the people that actually paid those dollars to the government, the taxpayers.
But despite many people, including ourselves, pointing out how wasteful the Federal government and its bureaucrats are, the waste continues to pile up, according to the Convention of States website:
  • $21 Million - Loans to Rolex jewelers
  • $670 Million - Grants for Colleges of Beauty and Cosmetology
  • $670 Million - Two sculptures for a facility that serves blind veterans
  • $5.7 Million - Dystopian climate change voicemails from the future
These examples come from a recent article in the Washington Times newspaper that documented wasteful spending to be about $50 billion, or enough to pay the Federal income taxes of 5,000,000 average American taxpayers. 

Imagine what that would do the economy and job creation if 5,000,000 American families could spend that money efficiently in the economy rather than having it wasted on stupidity by the Federal government. Imagine how many homeless Americans got be sheltered, how many hungry Americans could be fed, or how many drug addicted Americans could receive treatment for their addiction. Certainly more noble used of those $50 billion than building prom video games.

3) But the Washington Times is not the only source of wasteful government spending. Senator Rand Paul recently released the annual “Waste Report” of the Federal government and it contains more egregious examples of politicians’ wasteful spending:
  • The report highlighted wasteful spending totally $114,514,631, a large number but not even close to be all inclusive of all wasteful government spending since it only included 100 examples of waste.
  • The American taxpayer paid $76 million to the country of Somali to help pay their army’s soldiers.
  • A quarter million dollars was sent to Rwanda to teach Rwandan citizens how to lobby their government.
  • The National Institutes of Health spent $800,000 to study the sex lives of quail...who are high on cocaine.
Again, even if you do not want to give this wasteful spending wealth back to the taxpayers, surely it could be better spent on the homeless, hungry, and needy in this country. $800,000 could feed a lot of hungry Americans, the sex lives of quail be damned. 

Step 44 from our book, “Love My Country, Loathe My Government” would not allow ANY of these expenditures since it would restrict government spending to only projects that positively and significantly impact the lives of Americans in at least five states. Lobbying efforts in Rwanda, quail sex studies, etc. would never get funded under this simple principle.

This is a good start to this month’s political class inanity: politicians trying to crush the First Amendment and politicians crushing our pocketbooks with worthless, stupid expenditures. More insanity too sure follow.

The Horrors And Destruction That Donald Trump Has Imposed On America...Just Kidding! Part 19

Before we start today’s discussion, let’s review my voting history: 
  • I have never voted for a Republican for President in my life. 
  • Thus, I did not vote for Trump. 
  • I have rarely voted for a Republican for national office in my life. 
About 2 years ago, many liberals, Democrats, and millennials were besides themselves with grief and fear because their pre-ordained queen, Hillary Clinton, was not elected President. Instead, Donald Trump was elected, an individual that these same people despised, hated, and feared, an individual they felt would endanger and possibly destroy the country and our democracy. For the past year and a half they fretted, worried and lashed out at anything or anyone that even remotely smelled of Donald Trump.

Given that Trump has been in office for almost two years, I thought, that as someone who did not vote for him, it would be a good idea to review the horror, trauma, and terrible things that Trump has subjected the country to in just eighteen month’s time. This is obviously a very sarcastic comment when you take an unbiased look at what has happened during the Trump Presidency. 

The many previous posts we did on this topic identified over 200 good things that have happened to America and Americans since Trump became President can found by entering the phrase “the horrors and destruction” in the search box above.

It has been over a month since we updated this series so let’s catch up with the latest Trump administration accomplishments:

- He recently announced that he was bringing 2,000 U.S. troops home from Syria, a great first step in maybe finally bringing home some of the over 200,000 troops we have stationed overseas at great expense and little positive impacts.

- Apple announced that is building a $1 billion complex in Austin, Texas that will eventually be home to 5,000 high paying jobs, another sign of a healthy Trump economy.

- Christmas season retail sales were up a very robust 5.1% vs 2017 and online seasonal sales were up 26.4%, another great economic feat under Trump.

- In October, there were 7.08 million job openings in the country but only 6.08 officially unemployed Americans, meaning that there were one million more jobs than Americans willing to work, indicating a red hot job market and economy.

- The job opportunities in the U.S. manufacturing sector ware at the best levels since the year 2000.

- Trump signed into law a major, and positive, criminal justice reform law that will cut back and soften the draconian criminal sentencing law enacted under Bill Clinton, a draconian law that unfairly targeted African-Americans over the past few decades.

- Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, advocated and got Congress to pass the WEEE legislation, the Women’s Entrepreneurship & Economic Empowerment Act, a law that promotes and focuses U.S. foreign aid on programs that support women and women-owned business. 

- Food stamp enrollment levels have dropped by about 3.5 million people over the past year, with 47 out of 50 states reporting fewer food stamp residents this year than last year, due to the booming Trump economy and reforms that Trump has initiated to weed out recipients that do not deserve to be on the program.

- Trump recently signed an executive order that will make it easier for private sector investment in 8,700 economic opportunity zones that help bring jobs to impoverished areas across the country. 

- According to Rasmussen polling, Trump’s current approval rate is up to 48%, two percentage points higher than what Obama’s was at the same point in time in their respective Presidencies.

For those of you that have hated on Trump since day one, and given your obvious gross error in judgment relative to Trump given the 200 accomplishments we have previously listed and the ten newest accomplishments listed above, let me ask that you to do us all a favor by implementing the following changes in your behavior and attitude:
  • Chill out, tamp down your TDS affliction. No matter how much you hate Trump on a sexist, personal basis, get over it. He is the legally and duly elected President, he will be around for a while so refocus your hatred on more constructive issues and matters. You will live a lot longer if you take your hatred out of your heart and soul and devote it to something positive.
  • I would really appreciate it if some of you would apologize to the Trump voters you have disrespected in some of the grossest terms possible over the past year. You have called millions of voters racists, ignorant, stupid, Nazis, KKK members, and other horrible names simply because you disagreed with their voting choice. No American should be called such disgusting names simply because they exercised their Constitutional rights to the best of their abilities. Plus, slandering over 60 million Americans is no way to unite the country and get it focused on the real issues facing us all.
  • More personally, I would like, no I am demanding, an apology from some of you for your slanderous and disgusting name calling because in doing so, you insulted and disrespected my sister, my family members, my friends, and my co-workers who simply voted their conscience. I will defend their right to vote anyway they wanted and will no put up with your childish and vicious venom and bile directed at them, very important people in my life.
  • And finally, I challenge you to read the following blog post, a post that shows quite clearly that it was hateful people like some of you and your silence during the Obama years that actually caused Trump to be elected. Thus, the people you hate for voting for Trump are actually looking back at you in the mirror:

If you were silent in the dozens of instances listed in this post then you were responsible for the very thing you hate: a Trump Presidency. Or put another way, a so far successful and productive Trump Presidency. Over 200 accomplishments in a little less than two years is not too shabby despite many of you wanting both Trump and the country to fail.

Finally, A Score Card Of Corruption on The Mueller Investigation/Witch Hunt and Assorted Other Scandals and D.C. Corruption

Most Americans should know that Robert Mueller, former Attorney General, has been acting as a special counsel investigating whether or not the Russians interfered in the 2016 Presidential election. Specifically, he is witch hunting to see if he can implicate Trump and his campaign with potential Russian interference. After almost two years of investigation he has found nothing that would say that Trump was in cahoots with the Russians. 

While he has managed to find some potential law breaking by people associated with Trump, e.g. Michael Cohen and Robert Manafort, he has found nothing that links Trump the Russians. And for all of this nothingness he has spent well over $25 million of taxpayer money. And there does not seem to be an end in sight as the investigation grinds on and on, having taken on a life of its own with no end game or wrap up in sight.

There are those of us that believe that the whole investigation from the start had nothing to do with the Russians but was a scheme by established government operatives in the Justice Department, FBI, and CIA that could just not stand the concept of an outsider, Trump, being President. These folks had milked and connived the system to their financial and career benefits for decades and did not want to see that gravy train end. The Muller effort truly was a witch hunt for the benefit of the so-called “Deep State.

Given that they have not found anything on Trump and the Russians and Trump has imposed many, many sanctions on the Russians, something that a co-conspirator would not do, the Mueller investigation more and more looks like a travesty. And I would suggest that after reading the following paragraphs you will probably come to the same conclusion.

One of the public relations problems of the Mueller investigation is that it has grinded on for so long and so many people have been in involved that it becomes very confusing as to what is actually going on. But the following description and history of the main players in this witch hunt clears up a lot of the confusion and lays out what is really going on.

As you will see, this is not an independent investigation with high ethics. This whole charade has been orchestrated by career Washington types with a myriad of secret connections, mutual beneficial behavior, political favors, greed, and a network of shady characters that goes back decades. Read and then decide: who really is the culprit here, Trump or the whole corrupt and infested political class in Washington.

The following came to me via a friend, We have discussed many of these shadowy connections before but this lays out the entire picture in an easy to understand format:


Everyone Should Read this. Slowly, and Patiently.

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A Grand Jury had been empanelled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009.

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

Ok, no big deal right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

$145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

No other than, Lois Lerner.

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013.

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

No other than James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016 , James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA Abuse, political espionage..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.


See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies.


Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

Lawrence also represented: Robert Mueller three times; James Comey five times; Barack Obama 45 times; Kathleen Sebelius 56 times; Bill Clinton 40 times and Hillary Clinton 17 times. Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman? Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets. Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian. Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.

Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter. It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians. Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

BECAUSE….She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!


Given the above secret and covert connections, at this point whatever Muller comes up with is invalid. Such massive conflict of interest should have never occurred if the Deep State actually wanted an investigation with integrity. With the above nonsense, integrity is an impossibility.

Note: Don't get me started on Loretta Lynch, not mentioned in the above web of deceit and corruption.

December, 2018, Part 2, The Unfolding Disaster That Is Obama Care: Costs Up, Quality Down, And Other Disasters

Every month for years now we have had to discuss how bad Obama Care is turning out to be under the continuing theme, “the unfolding disaster that is Obama Care.” This month is no different. As the legislation continues to march through America, driving up health care and health insurance prices as it serves as dead weight on economic growth, it cements its rightful place as the worst piece of legislation Washington has ever produced.

It never had a chance to be successful since it really never addressed the underlying root causes of our ever increasing health costs in the country:
  • Americans eat too much of the wrong kind of food, resulting in obscenely high obesity rates for the country.
  • Our food chain is infested with overdoses of high fructose corn syrup, salt, sugar, and other unhealthy additives.
  • Americans smoke too much.
  • Americans do not exercise enough.
  • The country is in serious need of health care tort reform.
  • Barriers to insurance company competition across state lines need to come down.
  • Obama Care never “followed the money” to find out who is actually profiting from the ever escalating healthcare costs in this country and how to get those factors under control.
  • Obama Care never got the immense amount of fraud and abuse in current government healthcare programs, Medicare and Medicaid, under control in order to save money to efficiently fund other government health care initiatives.
  • Obama Care never put serious research money towards curing the major diseases that drive high healthcare costs such as high frequency cancers and dementia type diseases.
You cannot resolve any problem unless you understand and address the underlying root causes. No difference here: Obama Care legislation never addressed these listed root causes and thus, has no chance of ever being successful.

But it is not just missing the root causes of our healthcare costs that makes Obama Care so horrible. It resulted in millions of Americans losing access to their favored doctors, hospitals, and insurance policies. It has caused insurance premiums, deductibles and copays to escalate substantially. It will likely add trillions of dollars to the national debt. It has exposed millions of Americans to higher than necessary identity theft chances. It has created government bureaucracies that are wastefully spending taxpayer wealth and being exploited by criminal elements. It has stifled economic growth and job creation.

These are just a sample of the types of idiocy that we have been reviewing for the past several years in this blog relative to Obama Care. To read those past posts, just enter the phrase, “the unfolding disaster,” in the search box above.

1) In our last post we reviewed the recent court decision in Texas that ruled Obama Care as being un-Constitutional. Twenty states, led by Texas, wanted the legislation overturned using the following logic:
  • Under the Trump tax cut legislation, Congress got rid of the Obama Care tenet that put forth a financial fine/penalty for any American that did not get health insurance for themselves.
  • The Supreme Court had previously ruled that the penalty was not a fine but a tax that Chief Justice Roberts put forth under a tortured logic argument and thus, the Obama Care was legit since the Constitution grants Congress the right to impose a tax….but not a financial penalty for inaction.
  • Also, Obama Care supporters had always made the argument, and the Supreme Court seemed to agree, that the financial penalty was crucial and indispensable to the entire legislation and not “severable” from the rest of the law, and without it the rest of the law would be invalid.
  • This set the stage for Texas et al to win their case since the 20 states argued that once the penalty for not getting insurance under Obama Care went to zero, it was no longer a legitimate tax since a $0 tax is not, in effect, a tax and thus, the whole legislation should be invalidated.
  • California and 16 other states countered the argument, somewhat illogically, that even a a tax burden of $0 is still a tax.
In any case, the ruling is sure to be appealed and probably appealed to the Supreme Court. But think of the insanity of the California et al logic: a tax is still a tax even if the tax rate and amount is zero. I would be more than willing to be taxed all day long as long as the tax load is always $0. But Obama Care never made any sense in any logical argument so saying a tax burden that is always zero is still a tax is par for the course.

2) The summary of the judge’s conclusion is as follows:



I am not a lawyer but it seems like the judge laid it out pretty clearly why the law is now invalid. Should be an interesting ride through the courts.

3) In writing about the judge’s decision, the Self Reliance Central website reminded us of the many failures of Obama Care over the years:
  • Premium and deductible costs went up and up for Obama Care health insurance policies even though Obama promised that Americans could see up to $2,500 in annual health insurance costs under Obama Care.
  • Most Americans had fewer choices of insurance, doctor, and hospital options under Obama Care tenets.
  • Many Americans were forced to change their choices of preferred doctors and preferred hospital networks as a result of Obama Care even though Obama promised that if you liked your current doctor/insurance policy/hospital you could keep your current doctor/insurance policy/hospital.
  • Medical providers were overwhelmed in government and insurance paperwork, reducing doctors’ ability to spend time with their patients and causing many established doctors to retire or leave the industry to get out from under the bureaucracy created by Obama Care.
  • Taxpayers were forced to pay far more in Obama Care subsidies, likely incurring almost $2 trillion in additional national debt in the first ten years, according to the Congressional Budget Office, despite Obama promising that not a single dime would be added to the national debt.
And yet, some Democrats still want to keep Obama Care in place. That such insanity still exists after so many years of so many Obama Care disasters defies logic and rational thinking. 

4) The Conservative Zone website recently quoted a Forbes article that shows again with real numbers how much of a failure Obama Care was:
  • In the four years BEFORE Obama Care was passed, average HMO premiums went down 4.6% but increased 46.4% in the four years AFTER it was passed.
  • In the four years BEFORE Obama Care was passed, average Point of Service (POS) premiums decreased 14.9% but increased 66.2% in the four years AFTER it was passed.
So much for the Obama promise that annual health insurance premiums could down down as much as $2,500 per family.

5) Democrats and liberals think that they can operate an efficient and effective health care system. But for years, they have allowed Medicare and Medicaid to leak out hundreds of billions of dollars in criminal fraud. A recent article in the AARP magazine is a perfect illustration of this incompetence:
  • Mashiyat Rashid, the former CEO of a Michigan health care company (Tri-County Wellness Group) recently pleaded guilty to bilking Medicare.
  • He conspired with doctors to defraud Medicare of a whopping $150 million.
  • They did it by prescribing opioids to drug addicts who then underwent unnecessary medical treatments that were billed to Medicare.
  • He used our Medicare funds to buy a Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, a mansion and court side seats to Detroit Pistons basketball games.
The good news is that this crook was eventually caught and is going to jail. The bad news is:
  • Why did it take so long to find this criminal activity? I mean did not the $150 million in billings not show up anywhere in the government’s computers? 
  • How many other people like Rashid are still bilking the American taxpayer and Medicare out of billions of dollars?
  • How much worse will the fraud be if liberals and Democrats get their way and greatly expand Medicare without fixing the current criminal fraud problems?
The insanity never ends, politicians and government cannot operate an efficient and effective health care function, from the failed single payer plans around the world to the failed current Federal programs of Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans Administration and Obama Care.

6) Let’s finish up this month’s review of the unfolding disasters of Obama Care with some good news. Part of Obama Care was to try and get kids to eat better in school, a noble idea totally screwed up by the Federal government. Fortunately, the Trump administration is getting rid of much of the stupid school lunch rules, as illustrated in the following video:

Unfortunately, next month we will be back with more unfolding disasters from the worst piece of Federal legislation ever enacted.
