United States Democratic Party in Conspiracy With US Dept. of Justice, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, and Russia in Treasonous Attempt to Remove President Trump

                 In Washington DC there are two sides to every street. On both sides of the street, the constitutional rights of every citizen have been tested, have suffered greatly at the hands of a few power hungry people, but have weathered the storms of time.
                 Now comes yet another corrupted and power hungry enclave seeking to overthrow our elected president, namely Donald Trump, by force, and even by assassination if necessary.  For Hillary Clinton to rise to a position where she has been held as being above the law, has aided and abetted crimes against this nation, has paid Robert Mueller, the United States Special Counsel through various channels to investigate President Trump is an atrocity to the very nature of justice and freedom.
                    It is common knowledge that Robert Mueller's legal staff are, by a great majority, members of the Democratic Party. It is further common knowledge that Robert Mueller was provided a dossier full of fraudulent documents which were then used to illegally obtain a FISA warrant against a Trump campaign employee at least three different times, even after the FISA court had knowledge that the dossier contained fabricated evidence. I believe that the FISA court could have erred once by granting the warrant the first time. However, once the knowledge was out that the documents were fabricated, spurious, and even perjured documents, the FISA court had the audacity to violate its own mandate of providing a fair and impartial hearing and to preserve justice at any cost, and it failed miserably to do so.
                     It is common knowledge that former FBI chief Comey tried to influence the presidential election by releasing the fact that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party were still under investigation for 22,000 emails that went missing, the illegal destruction of servers, the illegal destruction of documents, and tampering with evidence. Maybe the Democratic Party didn't offer Comey enough money and he turned rogue on them at the last minute. After all, it was decided on an airplane between former President Bill Clinton and the then Secretary of the US Dept. of Justice that no criminal charges would be filed against Hillary Clinton. To this day, even though there are mounds of evidence of collusion between Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party, the United States Dept. of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Russia's President (dictator) Putin no criminal charges have been brought against any person involved in the conspiracy.
                   Now we come to Special Prosecutor Mueller, who has openly defied his mandate, namely to determine if President Trump knowingly and therefore intentionally colluded with citizens from Russia during the presidential campaign in 2016. He has extended the investigation beyond its intended and authorized investigation, into territories unknown. He has sought business documents, attorney/client privileged documents, tax records, and other materials outside the original scope of his authorized investigation, and the United States Dept. of Justice has permitted the repeated violations of constitutional protections by the Mueller investigation to continue unabated. Maybe someone should be investigating Special Prosecutor Mueller for conspiring to commit treason along with the FISA court judges and the top echelon members of the Democratic Party.

                    I submit, that these are all acts of treason against the United States of America.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
Article III, Section 3, Clause 1  United States Constitution

                    To convict a person in the United States, the act must have been knowingly intentional. In my mind, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's actions that have violated the United States Constitution amount to conspiracy and collusion with Russia and the Democratic Party in their attempt to remove an elected president from office.  These are acts of treason by all parties in the conspiracy, and must be prosecuted to their fullest extent.

In his writing on treason in the United States Constitution, Philip M. McKenna wrote
"The Supreme Court has had occasion to pronounce on treason, albeit infrequently. In Ex parte Bollman (1807), Chief Justice John Marshall rejected the idea of "constructive treason" and held that for treason to be established on the ground of levying war against the United States, an accused must be part of an actual assemblage of men for a treasonable purpose. Conspiracy short of the actual levying of war is insufficient. But in the related case of United States v. Burr (1807), Marshall tacked slightly. He again rejected constructive treason, but did so by holding that Aaron Burr, if not physically present in an assemblage of men, could still be convicted of treason on the testimony of two witnesses that he actively helped effect or aid such an assemblage—in effect, aided in the levying of war. Together, these cases made a treason conviction exceedingly difficult for anything other than manifest participation in a treasonable act.
After Burr, the leading treason cases grew out of World War II, for adherence to enemies. In Cramer v. United States (1945), the Supreme Court held that a specific intent—adherence to the enemy, and therefore to harm the United States—is necessary, rather than the simple rendition of aid. Further, the majority came close to holding that such adherence requires proof, not just of an act that on its face is "commonplace" (such as a meeting) but a manifestly treasonable overt act, evidenced by the testimony of at least two witnesses. But in Haupt v. United States (1947)—the Court's first affirmation of a treason conviction—the Court effectively relaxed Cramer's standard of proof by holding that the testimony of two witnesses to overt acts might be supported by other evidence as to the accused's treasonable intent, including out-of-court confessions and admissions. In a concurring opinion, Justice William O. Douglas (who dissented in Cramer) affirmed that the separate elements of intent and overt act are amenable to different modes of proof, and only the latter triggers the constitutional requirement of testimony by two witnesses.
In Kawakita v. United States (1952), the Supreme Court held that dual citizenship does not diminish a citizen's allegiance to the United States, and, in a treason prosecution, whether someone intends to renounce American citizenship hinges on particular facts and may be a question for a jury.
Lower courts have had occasion to enter verdicts of treason, commencing with the Whiskey Rebellion, some of them arguably on broader grounds than what the Supreme Court would later countenance. For example, courts held that armed resistance to the collection of taxes constituted constructive treason. A number of cases arising out of the Civil War also suggested, without directly interpreting the Constitution, that Confederate activities amounted to treason (although the general amnesty of December 25, 1868, pardoned all Confederates). Because of the particular and high constitutional standards associated with the definition and proof of treason, hostile or subversive acts falling short of treason but directed toward the whole polity have been prosecuted under various laws of Congress, including those dealing with espionage (for example, the conviction and execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg in 1953) and, more recently, terrorism. The exercise of federal prosecutorial discretion has also led to the prosecution on other grounds of individuals for acts that arguably amount to treason (for example, John Walker Lindh captured in Afghanistan in 2001), or to failure to prosecute at all."

Heritage Guide to the ConstitutionPhilip M. McKenna (2017). 

I am asking the political powers of these United States to prosecute those involved in this sedition conspiracy and revoke their citizenship. The financial devastation that would be caused by an impeachment would be tantamount to that of a nuclear war.  I pray that you will act swiftly to prevent the overthrowing of our government by these conspirators.

Dow Jones Industrial Average Is Being Manipulated by US Federal Reserve Bank- A Larger Crash is Coming!!

              According to today's closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at more than 22,000 points, an unbelievable feat considering the fact that the United States Federal Reserve is behind the "false run-up" of the price of stocks.
               In the attempt to pay off the toxic debt instruments it was forced to acquire after 2007 and the TARP legislative bailout of the banking system, the United States Federal Reserve has caused the DJIA to become falsely inflated. As the prices of stocks purchased by the Federal Reserve rise, the Fed can then sell the stocks for a profit and gradually pay down the trillions of dollars of toxic debt instruments that it still holds.
                As of December 2016, the United States Federal Reserve was leveraged at the rate of 36.5% or thirty-six and a half times more debt than it has on hand in assets. The United States Federal Reserve has been bankrupt for years, which is why they refuse to honor subpoenas for their books and refuse to be subjected to an audit.
                 If you look at the United States Federal Reserve balance sheet, it fails to disclose this "other debt"- toxic debt instruments as doing so would reveal that it is leveraged well past recovery in the next thirty (30) years- yet the Fed keeps lying to the citizens of the United States and keeps printing worthless money.
                 Any economist worth their salt knows that the Federal Reserve balance sheet is full of holes, and blatant lies. 
           For the DJIA to rise  from 9,000 points in 2009 to more than 22,000 points this years truly requires manipulation on a grand scale. That manipulation is being coordinated by the United States Federal Reserve which has been making massive trades for the past eight years in the attempt to bail itself out of debt. 
            The meteoric rise in the DJIA is not only improbable, but statistically impossible given the fact that real estate and jobs have yet to return to their pre-2007 levels, manufacturing is still below 2007 levels, true earning power is below 2007 levels, oil prices are higher than they were in 2007, and the political climate is colder than it was in 2007. 
                   Given the above indicators, a false market has been created by the United States Federal Reserve with the intent to mislead the world into a false sense of security while the United States Federal Reserve, a bank cartel corporation- not part of the United States government- cleans it books of bad debts. Can a larger market crash be looming on the horizon as a result of this fabricated market? I believe that is the intention of the Federal Reserve as well. My advice is to remove your assets from stocks into other assets that are not controlled by the Federal Reserve such as metals and real estate.

Advice to Vladimir Putin - Dictator of Russia

                This post is dedicated to offering advice to Vladimir Putin, the non-democratically elected president of Russia. Considering that the previous presidential elections in Russia have been rigged, political opponents have been imprisoned or murdered under orders from Putin or his underlings, I am offering my expert advice to him in the attempt to convince him to alter not only his path, but waylay the destruction of Russia from the inside by his own political machinations.

                My advice:

1. In the next six months hold completely verifiable by UN Elections Official, a democratic open election for the presidency of Russia and its full parliament.

2. Remove the top ten military officials in each branch of military in Russia.

3. Sign the International Peace Accord as it was submitted to the United Nations earlier this year (see copy in this blog).

4. Allow all Crimeans the opportunity to leave the country and to enter Russia as citizens if they desire to, then return Crimea back to Ukraine.

5. Admit that Russian missiles were used to shoot down Malaysian Flight MH 17 and compensate the families of the victims.


7. Enter into a nuclear reduction treaty where every current holder country possessing nuclear weapons will reduce their present supply of nuclear weapons by 10% per year for the next nine (9) years, then by 50% of the remaining supply of nuclear weapons until each country has a supply of only one hundred nuclear weapons (verifiable by United Nations) of any kind.

8.  Permit all Russian citizens to leave the country at will without the present requirement of a return airplane ticket.

9. Establish and adopt a Bill of Rights for the citizens of Russia that are guaranteed to every citizen of the country.

10. Stop funding terrorist groups around the world and selling nuclear components to other countries.

My Advice to World Leaders Including President Trump

            It's easy to give advice, and harder to accept that you don't have all the answers. I sympathize with those who thought that being a leader of a country or an organization would be an "easy" or "comfortable" job. Not unless you like having pitchforks jabbed at you from every direction. I have learned to do my due diligence long before typing the first word of advice. You can't unpublish something on the Internet or unspeak the words that come out of your mouth. You might be able to confuse and befuddle the idiots of the mainstream press, who pander their own agenda, but middle of the roaders like myself have learned to stand quiet while others make fools of themselves.
             President Trump would be wise to stand idle at times when he wants desperately to speak, to shout, to strangle his opponent, and wait for the opportunity to demonstrate that his point of view is more acceptable than his opponent's.
             If you look at pictures of many world leaders it looks as if they have a bad case of gas, but they are just internalizing the thought of strangling an opponent that had a different point of view, or someone that had proven them wrong.

So, here's my advice:

1. Climate Change- Paris Accords

     Leave the United States in the accord. I live in Ohio, and every day the weather aka climate is different. Having spent years going over the data myself as well as the arguments, I do not believe that the end of the world is near. I do believe that we need to create less of a carbon footprint than we are.
     We did not create this planet and we are NOT in charge of its maintenance, but we can all work together to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle everything.

      Manufacturers need to be regulated into closed loop manufacturing so the waste and pollution that they create is as little as possible. In house recycling should be mandated by the EPA that every manufacturing facility have a closed loop process in place by 2025.

       Government fleets should be running on hydrogen fuel cells or CNG by now as these are the two cleanest fuels. Govern by example gentlemen and ladies.

       While Climate change has been happening daily for thousands of years (not millions), the average temperature increase of one-tenth of a degree per year is not that great of an increase. If all of the HAARP experimental weather programs were closed, the weather would stabilize by itself.

        Staying in the Paris Agreement makes sense in that it demonstrates the United States' commitment to making the world a cleaner, safer place for all of us to live. The voluntary reductions are easily done, the change in attitude from greed to helping out your neighbors will take a little more time.

        WAR GAMES- North Korea, Syria, China, Russia

         War games are easy if you're not the one dying or getting shot at. Unfortunately, politicians too readily send others into harms way over a difference of opinion on simple matters. President Trump wants to increase the military budget while cutting social programs. The negative impact at home of cutting social programs would cause an increase in the prison population, inner-city strife, economic gaps, a four-tier social economy, and waste resources that could be used to clean up the United States internally. Instead of being the world's police force, (our military has a presence in 104 countries and increasing), we should fix the infrastructure, build bridges, roads, desalination plants, create an environmentally sustainable and friendly fleet of vehicles and get rid of the V-8's and limosines. We should provide funding to poverty stricken schools to increase the opportunities for children to escape poverty and the inner city. We should provide free health care (by buying corporate hospitals and clinics), cutting doctor's salaries, provide incentives for doctors and nurses to work in urban hospitals such as assistance in paying down or forgiving student loans for five years of inner-city hospital service.
        Instead of buying things to kill our fellow man with, we should invest in our children's futures by providing for free textbooks, free online college level classes, provide for reduced salaries or salary caps for professors and administrators that have caused the price of education to increase annually, and eliminate student loans in exchange for years of teaching, providing free legal services, free dental services, free medical services etc. to those below the poverty level in the attempt to level the playing field and close the economic gap between the poor and the one percent.

       The War on ISIS- A Modern Joke (Syria, North Korea, Russia too)!

        If Donald Trump was serious about ending the war in Syria, Isis's reign of terror, the civil war in Sudan, the mass killings of Christians in the Congo or any other war of any size, the massive waste of money the United States pours into our military that mostly sits on its assets unless it is protection human trafficking in eastern Europe or South Korea, could intervene and remove the threat to the world in a week. But, arm side quarterbacks like President Trump are not on the ground, have never experienced personal tragedy, and cannot fathom or begin to understand the long term consequences of their actions.
         Former President Bush's actions created the opportunity for a civil war to erupt in Iraq. The failure to consider the consequences of disarming the Iraq military and police force created a vacuum of authority inside Iraq, similarly when the United States intervened in South Africa and caused a civil war.
          Talk is cheap, putting lives at risk in a foreign country creates havoc on two continents, both here at home, and on the ground where lives are being risked. The "war" in Afghanistan is not a true war at all, but a show of force by the Central Intelligence Agency that they control the Heroin supply of the world instead of the Taliban. If the CIA and other "intelligence" agencies would remove themselves from Human Trafficking, Drug Running, Drug Distribution, murder for hire, political assassinations, government corruption, and other illegal acts, the world would be a much safer place for all of us. Why not cut the black ops budget in half and see what happens.
           If we truly wanted to end the terror in Syria, a few well placed bombs would resolve the matter quickly. But, you have to be able to estimate Russia's response. And, Donald Trump, being as mentally and emotionally unstable as Vladimir Putin is, doesn't have the guts to pull the trigger and end the Syrian War.
            As for the civil war in South Sudan, these are Christians killing Christians, we have decided to take no sides. As for the killing of Christians in Egypt, we have taken no stand. As for the killing of innocent people in the Congo by the police and the military, we have taken no stand. As for the violation and torture of journalists around the world in countries such as Eritrea, we have taken no stand.

           Building Walls Instead of Building Mutual Acceptance

          Five years ago I submitted an immigration plan to Pres. Obama and other congressional leaders. It provided a path to citizenship that included military service for at least one member of each family, the repayment of back taxes, social security, etc. a small fine, and a path out of the shadows. But, the two sides could not agree. Our current immigration system is broken and unworkable- no matter how many hands you have bailing water, it will continue to sink under the weight of intolerance and indifference.

         By all means secure the border from criminals and drug traffickers- but, at the same time, take the CIA out of the drug manufacturing and distribution industry, and Human Trafficking industry as well as the US Military. Our government employees should never put lives of civilians at risk, no matter what race, national origin, color, creed, or gender they are.

          It is high time that President Trump endorse the International Peace Accord that I drafted and submitted to the United Nation earlier this year. It is the future of the world whether hawks like President Trump think it is or not. It is the only way this planet will survive. If we cannot set aside our cultural and religious differences, and stop fighting over oil and natural gas supplies, we, as citizens of this planet will have failed our creator's mission given to us at birth- to make this world a better place than it was when we were born.

         Draining the Swamp (of Government employees)

          The first piece of advice that I offered President Popandreiu of Greece in 2011 was to cut 30-50,000 government jobs. The waste that was going into government employees salaries, benefits etc. was staggering. The employees received severance packages of six month's salaries, but that wasn't enough for these greedy people.
          Similarly, here in the United States, the "non-essential" government employees are 30-4-% of the government workforce. They contribute only to the morass of confusion, increase the budget, complicate resolution of problems, and push papers from one desk to yet another, then another for signatures and approvals.  The government produces no product, saves nothing, generates nothing but waste, and consumes more than 50% of the budget. A plan of employee buy-outs would be greatly appreciated if the plan included features that the government employee could NOT be employed by any government agency (federal, state, or local) for a period of ten years (including being a board member or officer), could not be employed by any contractor of the United States government for a period of ten years, could not be employed by a think tank, other lobbying or special interest groups for a period of ten years, and could not hold stock or other asset of any of the preceding for a period of ten years. The same rules should be applied to all government employees after their separation from government employment whether that employment was military service or as a citizen should have no bearing.

          Only by removing the incentive to conspire with one another will the swamp of corruption be drained in Washington D.C.

          This is a short list of my advice today. I have more advice, but unless I am being paid to give it, the body needs to sleep and prepare to fight the Cancer I might have. Chemo might start as early as two weeks and I am dreading it already.

           Almighty God, give our world leaders the wisdom to research the facts before they open their mouths. Let them set their egos aside before they make decisions that have long-lasting effects on all of us, and let them be humble before your throne, and permit you to run this world. Amen.

The ISMs of Economic Failure Throughout the World Today

                In these dark economic times, there are plenty of days to reflect on what went wrong, who did what, who lost, who won, who went bankrupt, and who is morally bankrupt. I wish it was as simple as one factor or another, but life is never that easy to predict or failures that easy to resolve.

                  In the clear light of day, we must remove the scabs that cover the wounds caused by others and by ourselves to our own economic futures and the economic futures of others. In his book Looking Out For #1, author Robert Ringer came to the final conclusion, that the best way to look out for Number One was to look out for numbers two, three, four, five, six, .....  To look out for the needs of others is the key to economic survival.

                    While we all discriminate, we each choose to what length our discrimination controls our lives. The ism's must always be kept under control, lest we fall and trip under our own egos, thinking that our thoughts are God's thoughts. We should know better than that. "God is not a respecter of persons."  Romans 2:11

                    The ism's we must control are: 

Classism:   "I'm better than you are because of what I have and what my economic standing is.
In the recent economic depression of 2007-2015, millions found out personally that God is not a respecter of persons. I, myself went from an annual income of $110,000 gross US $ to $42,000 from 2005 to 2009. I lost my newly rehabbed house that I was raised in after spending $30,000 to restore it and improve it. I lost, my job, my house, and my fiance all in the same year.

Egoism: "I'm better than you are because of my level of education, my political standing, where I work, or any other insignificant measure you use to make yourself look better in your own eyes."
I'm smarter that 98% of you, but there are those that are smarter than I am yet. Genius knows a little bit about everything, and a lot about nothing." 

Racism: "I'm better than you are because of my race, color, or creed."  Since no one has a choice as to where they are born, into what country, what color their skin is, or the social and political past of their ancestors, how can anyone ever be equal? In fact, we are all inherently born unequal by design, by our creator.

Religionism: "I'm better than you are because what I believe is the only true path to our creator." Radical religious fanatics have proven time and again, that no one wins a religious war.

Sexism: "I'm better than you are because God made me a man or a woman."  Why not just put the best person in the job and be done with it?  I almost always love having a woman on top of me, especially if it's not at my job. Women don't make the best (put job here), and for that point, neither do men. We are all good at something. We should find out what that is and do it.

Nationalism: Is the "New Rome" any better than the old Rome was with all its depravity?  Is being an American better than being a citizen of any other country? I wouldn't know. I wasn't born American. The law says I am one though, because I was born here. In my heart, I am English, Irish, Dutch, German, Scotch, Danish, Austrian, part Creek Indian (Iowa) and part African (don't know where, nor does it matter to me).  This is who I am. The fact that God planted me here only demonstrates his wisdom. Where else would I be free enough to solve some of the world's most pressing economic problems while pissing off the classist elites? 

If you practice any of the above isms, you are cheating yourself, your company, your government, your church, your religion, and your country. You are also damaging your own soul in the process.

Romans 2
New American Standard Bible
The Impartiality of God
      1Therefore you have no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things. 3But do you suppose this, O man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? 4Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? 5But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; 8but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. 9There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, 10but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11For there is no partiality with God.       12For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law; 13for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified. 14For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, 15in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, 16on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.

On May 8th I went into the hospital with a nearly collapsed right lung. I was transferred to Ohio State University Wexner Hospital. On Thursday of the same week, my right lung was operated on for four hours. After many botched biopsies, the placement of a top lung filter and a stent for lung drainage, lasering robotically all of my lungs and mediastinum (middle part), I am breathing much easier. I still have the occasional upper respiratory phlegm (blecch!) and will be finding out Friday next, with the assistance of the National Cancer Institute if I have lymphoma. If I do, my life might be cut short. My fight for a Stable and Fair Economic System such as The Time Exchange might end this year or next. If it does, I feel it necessary to thank the thousands of my readers who have taken my advice to heart and changed the world to make it a better place for all of us to live in. It has been a joy to have shared the wisdom that God gave me with you.  I pray that I will see many of you in heaven.

President Donald Trump's Agenda and the Republican Congress

             In the 1970's the United States elected Ronald Reagan to replace James Earl Carter (a really nice guy). Deals were made with axis of Evil Iran to allow them to continue to hold American soldiers hostage until after Reagan was elected.
             Jimmy Carter had also run on an anti-establishment campaign, but the Democratic Party bosses refused to help him change the face of America to make more of an economic balance in the country. It seems that no matter whether you are a country boy like Carter or a shark like Donald Trump claims to be, your agenda, even if it gave you a clear voter mandate to change the wealth inequality and to bring economic values more into balance, the infighting in Washington D.C. over who is the King or Queen of the mountain seems to be the business of the day. Rome burned while Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned. Obama tried to make the United States an oligarchical socialist republic over the past eight years.
               But, we must ask ourselves who is really in charge? Is this truly a country of "We the people.... or is this a country of economic slavery imposed by the greedy upon the meek?" The wealthy will surely burn in hell, while the meek will be around for eternity. You choose your own path here ladies and gentlemen.
               What nearly caused the collapse of the European Union is socialized medicine. One of my first pieces of advice to the European Union was to reduce the amount of money paid to drug companies, hospitals, and doctors. The escalation of health care prices was so extravagant over the past twenty years that the European Union could barely afford the tab.
                In the present wrangling over the United States budget, Donald Trump should take note of these facts:

                In the last government shut down, nearly 40% (forty percent) of all United States government employees were laid off because they WERE NOT ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL. So, if they are not essential personnel, why do we as a nation continue to pay them $50,000 a year plus in addition to benefits? Why not show them the door? In my first piece of advice to Greece's President in 2011, I advised the president to cut 30,000 to 50,000 government employees (leaches). Yes, they rioted, they cried in the streets to try to get their over paid jobs back. But Greece was soon on the road to recovery. Along came Socialist Angela Merkel to stir the pot from Germany. As a result of near draconian measures mandated by Merkel and the International Monetary Fund (as the European Central Bank stood by and watched), Greece's citizens voted Socialists back into office. Greece's new presidents first act? - You guessed it, he reinstated the 50,000 plus government leach jobs that had been eliminated. Greece is still trying to recover economically while the rest of the European Union is traveling on near solid ground. 

                  So, why do we continue to  employ NON-ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES and fund socialist programs such as Planned Parenthood, Public Broadcasting, NPR, and others with a socialist agenda? 

                  Government mandated socialism has NEVER worked as an economic model in any country or at any time in history. 

2)               Ironically, in direct opposition to what would have created millions of new jobs from 2008 to 2016, the Obama administration cut funding to the Small Business Administration instead of increasing it. The Obama administration was funding the building of Mosques around the world instead of paving the way for economic recovery here in the United States. 

                   Similarly, instead of endorsing the below International Peace Law, President Trump continues to taunt North Korea, continues to back the CIA's regime destabilization program, and continues to want to be the "King of the Hill." President Trump would be wise to take a few clues from the movie The Lion King. God makes kings and rulers and removes those who are not servant minded or humble. 
                    Instead of media bashing, instead of seeking out fights to wage, the president should CUT THE MILITARY FUNDING (the United States military budget is more than any other country in the world), and that doesn't include the hidden budget of the NSA, Black Ops, CIA, etc. 

The United States spends more on defense than the next seven countries combined
             If President Trump was truly interested in reducing the budget deficit, he would cut defense spending by 10% a year until the NON-ESSENTIAL personnel were depleted, impose a hiring freeze (done already), and use the money to provide Small Business loans instead. Change the regulations so that even non-disadvantaged persons (including white males) could get business loans.

                  Throw out Obamacare and start over. Drain the swamp, but don't build the wall with government funds. Instead, mandate that one member of each immigrant family illegally in the United States may serve either three years of military service or two years of community service. This will create a path to citizenship, provide job training, educate potential employees, reduce the number of gang members, and reduce the economic drag on the US economy.

                  Instead of stop-gap measures, pass a "clean bill" for the FY 2018 in September, and move forward towards a brighter future.

What TO DO WITH SYRIA AND ASSAD? Hmmmm. Let us Ponder on That

             The Syrian Civil War has been ongoing for some time now. It has been destabilizing the Middle East since its beginning. On one hand you have a demogogue supported by another demogogue (Putin), both are terrorists, both are mentally and emotionally unstable, both murder their adversaries, both are war criminals, and both want to continue to be terrorist leaders. The Syrian regime is also backed by other terrorist supporting organizations such as Iran, Hammas, and the soon to be eliminated Isis.
              On the other hand, you have a cobbled group of freedom fighters from different factions with no clear leader to get behind. This sounds like a poorly made Western movie. You expect the "good guys" to ride out, guns blazing, and shoot down the war criminals Putin and Assad, and take the Syrian Army to jail (the hoosegow) to be hanged for their participation in this traumatic display of inhumanity towards your fellow countrymen.
              It reminds me of the Battle for Leningrad in WWII. Remember when Russian officers were ordered to murder their own soldiers that did not want to be involved in the fighting? It sadly also reminds me that Putin has murdered or had murdered two opposition leaders in Russia in the past three years. It reminds me that Russian forces shot down Malaysian Flight MH17 without regard to the civilian lives on board the aircraft and then lied about it.
               In the past, the civilized nations of the world joined together and created NATO and the once revered United Nations. However, with rogue nations being presently part of the UN Security Council, and having veto power to thwart any action by the council, it has created an unforeseen scenario where a third group must be created.
                An International Peace Accord must be written and agreed to for the world be be at peace. Any nation violating said Peace Accord would be shunned by the other nations of the world until reparations had been made, war criminals had been surrendered to the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) for prosecution, and a treaty had been entered into by warring parties.
                We wonder why civilizations from other planets choose to avoid our planet and its warlike bravado. But, if you saw death and destruction in the name of greed on a daily basis from your neighbors, would you invite them to join you for dinner? I think not. Such a foolish thought might end up with your own death and destruction.

                  So, in the meantime, what needs to be done with Syria, Russia, Iran, Palestine, Israel, South Sudan and Sudan and other warring rogue nations?  Sanctions have had little affect on Russia, as they were not harsh enough. They did not go far enough to pierce the fat of the bear. Crimea is still illegally being held captive, as are the millions of its citizens.
                  While Russia was cooperating with the United States in its fight against Isis, I wonder what its end game was? Obviously, its fight against Isis helped keep Syrian's dictator in office, but what else has Russia planned to destabilize the Middle East?
                   Russia now has a foothold in Syria and can at will destabilize the entire Middle East by providing weapons, both nuclear and non-nuclear to other rogue nations such as Iran, Libya, Palestine, and Iraq, to name a few.
                   It is ironic that Russia has crawled into bed with radical Muslims to create a cockroach's nest in the Middle East, considering the fact that Russia nearly exterminated the Armenians, froze to death most of the Crimeans, and has caused the death of more Muslims than any other nation in history since 1800.

                   Who among you consider yourself to be "peace loving"? I implore you to stand with me to create and sign your nation's signature to an International Peace Accord that guarantees every nation the right: to have democratic elections, to be free from tyranny and dictators, to permit its citizens the right to redress issues with their government, to have freedom of speech, press, and religion, to have the freedom of movement, to be treated with dignity and honor, to be respected and provided equal opportunities to survive and even succeed in life, to have the necessities of life: food, clothing, shelter, and love, to be protected from foreign and internal armies who seek to take control of a sovereign nation against the will of its citizens, to be protected from criminal organizations, conspiracies, corporation, and governments that would violate the human rights of its citizens, and to establish other rights such as deemed necessary to protect and preserve future rights as they are adopted.

I will be working on drafting such a document in the near future. It is time for us as a planet to stop
funding war economies and to stop wasting money fighting one another over cultural, religious, territorial, or other childish notions and slights. It is time to end the war against humanity that has been created by the warmongers. It is time for us, as citizens of this world to learn to live in peace with one another or suffer the elimination of our species on this planet. The choice is yours.

A More Stable Economy For the World

               Now that the economies of the European Union have become more stable, the debts of the European Union members have been substantially paid down, and the European Union has become more unified, I look back at the few mistakes that were made and shrug my shoulders. A few mistakes due to arrogance and selfishness can be changed by an exchange of personnel, whether political or economic.
                 It is time to look at the big picture and stop looking inward. By helping others, you help yourself. Some time ago I read the book Looking Out For Number #1 by Robert J. Ringer. Every politician, banker, businessperson, teacher, and social worker should read this book. You do a great disservice to the world by being selfish, thinking of only your own needs. When you step back and grasp the big picture, you find that we are all connected. That what you do affects not only your circle of influence, but millions of people in your region.
                  If I shout "Fire!" in a theater, and a few dozen people are injured, and a handful of people die, the effects of that simple error in judgment has a traumatic effect on millions of people. Similarly, when politicians and bankers only look inwards to meet their personal goals and desires, it creates the environment for an economic tsunami such as the Depression of 2007-2015.
                  While Greece's economy has yet to fully recover due to the selfishness of its socialist leaders who returned the worthless government employees to their former jobs and refused to negotiate terms for repayment of its debts, the rest of the European Union has substantially recovered and has substantially paid down its debts. While some countries have imposed tough sanctions on their citizens to get results, others have barely changed their former practices. Those who have succeeded, realized that great changes only come through pain. A few short years of belt tightening and the economic strain of bloated budgets caused by government imposed socialism has been reduced.

                  I can only say, "Thank you for listening and doing what was needed."

                  Now, if we can dismantle "the war economy practice" of making weapons and then searching for or creating a war in order for those weapons to be used, this world would be a thousand times better to live in.

                   War, hate, greed, lust for power are all precursors of a failed world economic system.

                    In 2012 I offered the world The Time Exchange: A Non-Monetary Economic System that levels the playing field for every citizen of this planet. It is my hope that one day it is adopted and we can all treat one another as friends and not competitors. After all, we all live here by the grace of God, even though God doesn't care about us.

Wars, Corruption, Indifference, Greed, Hatred, Inequality and Other Obstructions to Economic Stability

            We here in the United States are between a rock and a hard place. We have the greatest freedoms in the world, and on the other hand, we have those who would limit our freedoms in the attempt to control us.
             We have free speech rights, but if we stand up to our government, we are investigated. I, myself, have had my phone calls, emails, blogs, and other communications illegally tracked for years. But, like Andrew Breitbart, I research and expose the truth when I find it. They have yet to murder me like they did him and thousands of others who dared speak the truth in spite of the dangers, but when that day comes, I will be in heaven. This is only my temporary home.
              Like our government here in the United States, it has been estimated that 80% of our citizens openly lie on their tax returns. We justify it as a result of our government employees wasting, stealing, and misappropriating our hard earned money. Our government provides us with nothing that we could not do for ourselves given the opportunity. We are charged for contaminated water, taxed to clean up brown fields created by industries that our USEPA failed to properly oversee, regulated to death, obstructed on many sides from speaking out against fraud, theft, abuse, and corruption by government employees. Federal judges are bribed in Dayton, Cincinnati, Ohio and throughout the land of the free (if you can afford an attorney) and the home of the brave (those who wake up every day and work for a living).
             Today, we mourn one of the worst acts committed by our own National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency. They have yet to tell the truth about what happened on September 11, 2001 or many other illegal acts of war around the world committed by them. They hide behind the mask of national security. What kind of documents were secured at the World Trade Center that needed destroyed that it was worth starting an illegal war to overthrow Iraq's Saddam Hussein and take control of the oil fields and murdering more than 4,000 people on that day and more than one million Iraq citizens in an illegal war?
           Why is it that despite the thousands of war crimes committed by the United States military and government officials that no one has been charged? Where are the passengers of United Flight 93 that actually landed in New York on September 11, 2001? Where are they now? Were they killed, moved, or put into a witness protection program? It would have been easy for the NSA to do.
            What about the Navy pilot that torpedoed the Pentagon? Was he promoted or drummed out of the armed forces? Was he given a medal? or was he murdered too? What about the pilots that flew the drones into the World Trade Center, were they sworn into silence or were they murdered? Were they promoted?
            As for the families of those who lost their lives as civilians in both the United States and in Iraq over the many wasted years spent fighting an imaginary enemy? Why did the United states government buy them off if the government was not guilty of crimes? How much does George Bush Jr. know that he is afraid to talk about? How can he live with himself and look in the mirror every morning with the knowledge that he was personally responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq?
             The WMDs Weapons of Mass Destruction that the United States government knew were not in Iraq anymore (as satellite video shot three weeks earlier of a convoy of military truck leaving Iraq headed towards Russia) clearly demonstrated. The version of Saddam Hussein found in a hole on a farm was NOT Saddam Hussein, but an imposter. Our government felt it had to kill someone, so it killed another innocent man. According to my sources, Saddam Hussein and his son left the country and went to Russia. From there, who know where they went. My sources also informed me that when Saddam and his surviving son raided Iraq's banks, his wife and daughter took the money (most of it anyway) to Yemen with them.
              If you ask any member of the United States military why we were in Iraq, they will tell you that we were there to secure the oil for the oil companies. Hundreds of thousand of innocent citizens died so the United States could secure a supply of oil, go figure.
              Is it any wonder that the world is in such a mess? Do you wonder why there is such inequality in the legal systems of the world? Do you wonder why the world's economy nearly collapsed under the strain of debt in 2007?
              If a plan like the Economic Stability Plan that I submitted to the United Nations Economic Council in 2012 was implemented, there would be no rich, no poor, no hungry, no starving, no uneducated, and wars would cease to happen.
               Here in the United States alone more than 100 million people lost their jobs and their homes from 2007-2015. The economic depression caused by greedy bankers, the wasteful Iraq War 2.0 (the war for oil), the war for Afghanistan's poppy crops, heroin trade and the destabilization of the Middle East nearly collapse the collective psychologically fake economies of the world.
               As a result of our continued interference in other countries and the massive debt load compiled by George Bush Jr. and Barack Obama (sixteen years of gross incompetence) thanks to the Council on Foreign Affairs that elected these two morons to the office of the president of the United States. You see, it is a myth that the population of the United States actually elects the president. It has never happened and unfortunately never will unless we change our constitution.
                This is exactly why it makes no difference whether Hillary Crooked Clinton or Oh My God Trump! in the commander in chief for the next eight years. Either way, the revolution of the poor and middle class citizens is coming to a shopping center near you. Forget Rodney King, O'Jay Simpson, Aunt Jemima, and Michael Jackson. The people that will need to hide are the business owners , the attorneys, the judges, the politicians, and the bankers. There will be no place to hide for any of them. No amount of police, no show of force, no military power great enough to calm the crowds of angry citizens that will take every wealthy person and send them to hell.Viva, le revolution!

Balancing the World's Economies Through Natural Equilibrium

It is very seldom that I weigh in on matters that are incomplete, but I find myself repeating the same thing over and over.... we live in a time where money has no tangible value. It has only intrinsic value.
Something only has value to the extent that another person is willing to exchange another item for it. The United States dollar, or the currency of any country, is only valuable to the extent that its citizens has faith in the government backing the currency. Here in these United States, we have no faith in our corrupt selfish government or the Federal Reserve that unfortunately runs our economy.
We live in a world where every country has a fiat currency, one with an imaginary value, that is set daily by a computer, to keep it in balance with every other country's currency.
We might as well be paying with Monopoly money, for it is almost worth as much.
Just as in Monopoly, the banker always wins due to theft, loans to itself from the other citizen's (players) work efforts, money (accidently) falling on the floor (out of circulation) , and manipulation of the rules of the game so the other players have an ever decreasing supply of money.
Every economist and financial consultant knows that the Federal reserve has been shoring up the artificially high Dow Jones Industrial Average and other markets by pumping in more worthless money.
The only way to make the US Dollar worth more, is to restore our faith in  our government, and to remove the bankers such as the Federal Reserve from the equation and to put the authority to change the economy back into the hands of the United States Treasury where it belongs.
The Federal Reserve and its policies caused the Great depression of 2007-2015 and its policies are continuing to stagnate the growth of the economy. The Federal Reserve, in fact, falsified its most recent balance sheets and left most of its toxic assets off of it, and classified them as future debts instead.
Until the citizens of these United States can trust its banks and its government, there will be no long term growth. The mere fact that the Federal Reserve refuses to allow itself to be audited demonstrates that is is, and has been lying to the rest of us in this world.
In my advice to the European Union, I informed them that government debt was an illusion that could be "disappeared," written off of the books intentionally. No one would ever know. And that has happened.
Due to the psychology of the marketplace, the United States could do the same thing, (as more than 70% of its debt is owed to itself and state government - to which it provides money).
In reality, the sky is not falling, God won't permit it to. Unless we remove the control that banks and bankers have over our collective economies and return them to the servant status (where they belong), the world's economy will never be stable and balanced.
