You Have No Enemies – Poem by Charles Mackay

You have no enemies, you say?
Alas, my friend, the boast is poor,
He who has mingled in the fray
Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes.
If you have none,
Small is the work that you have done.
You’ve hit no traitor on the hip,
You’ve dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You’ve never set the wrong to right.
You’ve been a coward in the fight.

Charles Mackay

No one pays for my flippin phone

At best, this benefit should have been kept to a home phone with service ending after a reasonable period of not getting a job or trying to find one.

Trump to Reign in “Obamaphone” Program

“A budget induces careful spending.” Wise advice, especially for government. Who said that? Benjamin Franklin?

Nope. It’s Ajit Pai, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, and he currently has the wasteful, fraud-riddled Lifeline program (better known as the “Obamaphone program”) clearly in his sights.

Pai is taking steps on his own, and supporting measures in Congress, to cut out waste, fraud and abuse in a program that mushroomed during the Obama presidency, according to Breitbart.
Created by the Reagan administration in 1985, Lifeline provides subsidized landline phone service to low-income families. It was expanded under the George W. Bush administration to add wireless service and popularized by massive outreach campaigns during President Barack Obama’s administration.

Program advocates now want to see it expanded to provide internet service. Because everyone deserves free internet, right? Right?

Pai agrees with expansion of the program, but not at the expense of responsible spending. While still a commission member, prior to being named chairman by President Donald Trump in January, he disagreed with expansion because a spending cap was not in place.
In real money terms, the settlement should have been $84.2 million, not the $51 million in damages the FCC sought. But why should Democrats be concerned? After all, it’s only money. Your money.

Speaking of that, remember the “Obamaphone Lady?” Michelle Dowery of Cleveland, Ohio, became an internet sensation in 2012 when she worked for the Obama campaign, yelling at a reporter that Obama was giving “every minority a phone,” as long as you were on “food stamps, Social Security, got no income, disability.”

By 2013, Dowery, though, appeared on the Infowars founder Alex Jones’ YouTube channel to discuss her change of heart about Obama. The reason? She’d gotten a job as a maid, “and my first check is eaten up by taxes.”
Apparently, it finally occurred to her who pays for those subsidized phones.

As they entered St. John’s Cathedral (church)

As they exited St. John’s we watched in-coming President Trump and Melania walk to the awaiting vehicle, followed by incoming VP Mike Pence and his wife Karen.

 

As Pres. Obama began his morning

President Obama begins departure from the White House, He takes a walk through the Oval Office from there he walked the outside corridor of the White House, and waves to the photographers and says “Thank You”, a few minutes later V.P. Biden and his wife walk the same path on the outside corridor of the White House. We did not see Michelle, nor Malia or Sasha at this time. Nor did we see his mother-in-law that lived with the family at the Whitehouse. Malia (7/4/1998), Sasha (6/10/2001). Malia was 10 and Sasha was 7 when Obama became or 44th President. (Malia being 10 at time Pres. Obama took office – Barron is 10 at time Pres. Trump takes office).

We watched as outgoing President welcomes incoming President Trump to Whitehouse

We watched as VP Biden and his wife welcome incoming VP Mike Pence and his wife to the Whitehouse. We watched as Pres. Obama and his wife Michelle stand outside the Whitehouse and await the arrival of the motorcade which drove up to the front steps of Whitehouse. Soon Donald J. Trump exited vehicle, Melania followed carrying a package wrapped in aqua blue paper, with a simple bow (note the package wrapped in paper complimented her blue dress. Also note in 2000 Michelle Obama brought a gift (wrapped in white) to Laura Bush as they met at steps of Whitehouse).

Obama began to direct a photo op, handing the present off to a person in the Whitehouse, then took his place next to the incoming President Trump, while Melania and Michelle lead the way into the Whitehouse.

We watched as many people arrived at the site of the inauguration, the .

We watched Bill and Hillary Clinton arrive at Capitol Hill, we watch as former VP Dick Chaney and his wife arrive, (he was wearing a cowboy hat). We watched as Bob Dole and his wife arrived. We watched as Debbie W.Schultz (Democrat) walked down steps of Capitol Hill. We watched as Ben Carson arrived, and walked the halls to the steps.  We watched as Jared, Vanessa, and Lara (Trumps son-in-law and daughters in-law) arrive at Capitol Hill along with their children.

We saw Bernie Sanders arrive (without his wife).

We watched Supreme Court Justices arrive at Capitol Hill and walk the halls toward the steps to the outdoor arena.  We saw Reince Prebus and his wife arrive. We watched past President Jimmy Carter and his wife arrive and walk the halls of Capitol Hill.

We watched as Bill & Hillary Clinton were seated 4 rows behind where Pres. Trump will stand. She was wearing a white outfit. They were being filmed coming down stairs just as Trump and Obama were seated in caravan.

 We also watched Bill and Laura Bush wait to be seated at Capitol Hill.

 We watched as the families left the Whitehouse and headed to Capitol Hill.

We watched Melania and Michelle walk to the motorcade and take a seat to the automobile waiting for them. We watch as Biden and Pence walk out to be seated in automobile. We watch as Pres. Obama and incoming President Trump walk out of the Whitehouse and walk to the automobile caravan. Trump and Obama talk as they walk, Obama guiding Trump. The caravan left the Whitehouse at same time Bill and Hillary were filmed descending the steps …and being escorted to the outside Lawn of Capitol Hill. We watched the motorcade make its way down the streets to Capitol Hill.

We watch as Trump and Obama arrive at Capitol Hill, and begin the walk of the halls, followed by Biden and Pence. Obama walked briskly leading Trump down the halls.

We watch the Trump children (Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron) walk the halls (apparently somewhat ahead of their father). Camera’s then roll to watch as the children descend the steps to the outside area. All Smiles, huge happy smiles. A camera took a quick look at Hillary, who was not smiling at the moment.

10:15 am, I noticed Ivanka looked over towards Hillary Clinton, nodded and seemed to say Hello.

We watched Michelle and VP Pres’s wife walk thru the halls toward outside, and then descend the steps, and take their seat on first row to the right of podium (just in front of Hillary.

We watched as Melania ascended down the steps. Shortly after Obama & Biden walked down the steps.

Then, we watched as Trump descended the steps to the outside area of Capitol Hill, his look was determination. Look of Knowing where he was at, and what was happening. An assurance, not a solemn look, no one of assurance. Knowing exactly why he was there, and what his mission is.

We watched as Mike Pence walked down, shaking hands with everyone …didn’t shake Bill Clinton’s hand, but Bill didn’t reach his hand out.

We watched as horns trumpeted, and Donald J. Trump came onto top step, and descended the steps, we watched as Trump stood in the Halls of Capitol Hill, his look was determination. Look of Knowing where he was at, and what was happening. An assurance, not a solemn look, no one of assurance. Knowing exactly why he was there, and what his mission is.

We watched as horns trumpeted, and Donald J. Trump came onto top step, and descended the steps,

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the Presidential Oath to incoming President.

2016 Will Be Remembered as The Year “Media Polling” Corruption Was Exposed…

Posted on by

In a year when there were hundreds seismic shifts amid the tectonic plates within the body politic, one of the most important was the revelation that Media Polling is just as brutally biased as the media entities who present the polling results.

With election 2016 behind us, and before 2017 arrives, the truth behind the intentionally constructed deception must not simply fade back into the shadows.  Never again should the American voter trust the polling presented by corporate media.  Everything about it is a financed and manufactured fraud.

2016-election-results-final

For many people the November 8th election was the culmination of many years of difficult effort.  This intensely challenging endeavor to awaken the national body politic was begun by ordinary members of the electorate, who assembled amid the rise of the various local Tea Party groups, long before Donald Trump announced his candidacy.

In 2008 we were labeled “bitter clingers“; in 2009 we were deemed “extremists“; in 2010 “racists“; in 2011 “whack-o-birds“; in 2012 “hobbits” and “crazies“; in 2013 “right-wing nuts“; in 2014 “slope heads in flyover country“; in 2015 we were “nativists“; and in 2016 our labeling culminated as -amid other things- “a basket of deplorables”.

However, through all of the name calling and ridicule we remained what we always were, simply “Americans”.  Americans, who joined hands and stood resolute against the furnace of overwhelming opposition.

The goal was miles and miles away, and often we could only move an inch at a time.   2016 was a movement of success against overwhelming odds.

Exactly 132:1 odds, in just the last 18 months, to be precise.

Before we begin the arduous process of holding our political representatives accountable for the mandate we require, there is a very important detail which must be forever stitched into the binding of our republic to ensure it is never again forgotten.

THE MEDIA POLLSTERS DIDN’T GET IT WRONG – Their pollsters did not work from the wrong data set, or begin their analysis with the wrong assumptions.  The media pollsters, consultants and professional political class did not work from incorrect baselines…..

…THEY LIED.

The professional media polling agents knew exactly what the truth was.

They lied and manipulated their data in a concerted effort to intentionally falsify reality.

There must be no doubt, EVER, in the mind of any political observer as to what took place within the expressed and broadcasted polling which fueled over two years of broadcast news, and drove massive anxiety amid the consuming audience – The media, all of the corporate media, intentionally lied.

They knew the truth. The same analytical tools available to us, and to those who were ridiculed for truth-telling, were available to them and many more. They did not get it wrong; they didn’t make mistakes. They chose to lie to the American electorate.

So lets name the most notorious liars so their names and organizations can forever be dispatched from the land where credibility is of value:

  • Fox News, pollster Daron Shaw, Shaw Research and associates and the Wall Street Journal. Rupert Murdoch. – Example HERE
  • NBC News, pollster Mark Murray, Hart Research and Associates. Example
  • Monmouth University, pollster Patrick Murray. – Example HERE
  • CBS News and New York Times writ large. – Example HERE
  • ABC News and The Washington Post. – Example HERE
  • CNN News Network and ORC Polling. – Example HERE
  • Rasmussen and Reuters Polling Operations. – Example HERE
  • Bloomberg Polling – Example HERE

These individuals along with every single corporate national media polling outlet, which in turn contributed to -and skewed- the larger aggregate of the Real Clear Politics average of polls, were complicit in their intent to deceive the American electorate in an ideological scheme to manipulate the psyche of the American voter…

…and yet they have the nerve now to broadcast endless hours of pearl-clutching opinion on a supposed, manufactured and false “Russian influence” over the same election.  Think about that jaw-dropping hypocrisy for a moment.

There is not a single shred of credibility that should remain with any of the above mentioned polling entities or the corporate media outlets who espoused them.

They did not make mistakes; they did not operate from the wrong assumptions. These organizations, as part of the larger corporate objectives from those who fund their endeavors, lied.

Allowing them to say they made mistakes is only dooming the American voter to a  continued cycle of battered electorate syndrome.  These entities are our abusers. They have been gaslighting the American voter for years, and they have been able to remain unchecked because no-one ever called them to task before this year.

Throughout the last two years we, along with others, have identified and exposed this corrupt business endeavor while simultaneously being ridiculed and marginalized at each undertaking. There should be no quarter provided and no amount of forgiveness ever offered.

The entire construct of their operational business model is corrupt from top to bottom.

♦STEP #1 – A biased/ideological media pays biased/ideological pollsters for biased/ideological polling.

♦STEP #2 –  The biased result is used for media stories and manufactured narratives.

It is all crap.  This moment in election history should forever separate their influence from our national political discussion. PERIOD.

Lies.

All of it.

Intentionally so.

Break the cycle.

Never, ever, validate “corporate media polling” again.  Ever.
