Dangers of Requiring a Loyalty Pledge

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

donald-trump-loyalty-pledge-t-shirt

While finishing off the day, going over entries on Facebook, there was one particular link which immediately caught my attention.  Someone had established a page imploring folks to ‘Pledge your Loyalty to Donald Trump’ as we enter this new era for America.

There were T-shirts with this logo pledging loyalty to Donald Trump splashed across the front, symbols of our undying devotion to the man who has promised to “Make America Great Again”.  The way they see it Donald Trump is our hope, our one and only hope to save the country.

adolph-hitler-the-fuehererMy thoughts instead turned to a much darker period of time; pre-WWII Germany when Adolph Hitler promised to restore Germany from the brink of bankruptcy into a nation all could be proud of, make the Fatherland great again.  The Hitler Youth saw him as a father figure, god-like and worthy of the title Fuhrer.

The rest of the world didn’t share Germany’s blind obedience to the Fuhrer; instead they saw him as a threat, something to be dealt with, even if it meant going to war.  Far too many died to stop a nation willing to do the bidding of a narcissistic ego maniac who grabbed the reigns of government and captured the hearts with promises of national pride and greatness.  No, this kind of loyalty must be avoided.

pledge-of-allegianceOur loyalties are to the Constitutional Republic which protects our individual God given rights from power seeking men who achieve high office.  Our Flag is a symbol, a means of displaying all that is good about our country.  It isn’t a banner declaring any particular party or individual as supreme leader; but some folks can’t understand or get their arms around the idea of a nation that relies on self governance, instead looking for a great leader to guide them and rule over them.

Sorry; but my allegiance is limited to the concept of individual liberty and is given to no man.

China Connection: Mitch McConnell’s Wife, Elaine Chao, Tapped for Transportation Secretary

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

chao

While Americans were torn over President-elect Trump’s push to either imprison or kick out of the country anyone who disrespects the American flag (a blatantly unconstitutional move), Trump went about tapping his Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao. She is the wife of Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. This is hardly what I would call draining the swamp. Instead, it smacks of a payback for loyalty during Trump’s election season. And it’s not just that… Chao is a security threat and should not be allowed in the President’s cabinet. She would never pass a real background check. Although, by and large, I like most of President Trump’s picks… he chose poorly on this one.


Chao is a retread from the Bush administration – she was tapped as George W. Bush’s Labor Secretary. A move that should never have been allowed given Chao’s contacts in communist China. She is also connected to the Bloomberg Foundation which is very anti-coal. Ironic since she lives in Kentucky. McConnell has been a big supporter of the now-defunct Trans Pacific Partnership. I would remind everyone that Ted Cruz called McConnell a stone-cold liar for a reason:

Prompting Cruz’s outburst: McConnell’s move to set up amendment votes on a must-pass transportation bill. After senators voted to consider the bill, McConnell (R-Ky.) set up votes on two controversial measures — a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and a reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States — and did it in such a way that will make it difficult for other amendments to be considered.

That move incensed Cruz — who had announced his intention to offer other amendments, and who, like many conservatives, strongly opposes the bank’s reauthorization, though it enjoys support from a supermajority of his Senate colleagues. While McConnell has personally spoken against Ex-Im reauthorization, Democrats said in June he had agreed to schedule an Ex-Im vote in order to get highly divisive trade legislation passed.

But McConnell at the time denied that any deal had been struck, and Cruz said Friday the same assurance was given in a private Republican conference meeting:

We had a Senate Republican lunch where I stood up and I asked the majority leader very directly, what was the deal that was just cut on [trade legislation, and was there a deal for the Export-Import Bank? It was a direct question. I asked the majority leader in front of all the Republican senators. The majority leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask such a question, and the majority leader looked at me and said, “There is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal.”

“Like Saint Peter, he repeated it three times,” Cruz added.

So, you see why I cringe when I see McConnell hanging with Trump wearing a Cheshire grin. As much as I detest him, his wife gives me even more pause. And I’m not the only one. When Bush nominated Chao for Labor Secretary, Chinese dissidents like Hongda “Harry” Wu were shocked.

“I worry about Elaine Chao’s business relationship with communist China,” he said in 2001. “This woman has a significant shipping business through her father.”

Add to this Trump’s proposed $1 trillion infrastructure spending proposal. Sen. McConnell has previously worked on behalf of President Obama to shove a $305 billion highway bill through Congress, in addition to multiple other spending monstrosities that we can ill afford. His wife will now have the ear of the most powerful man in America and will be advising him on infrastructure spending. McConnell’s penchant for pork barrel spending will also be a breeze for him with his wife in this position.

Chao’s father, James S.C. Chao, is the founder of Maritime Corp. They ship goods to China and they also buy ships from China State Shipbuilding Corporation. He has strong ties to former Chinese President Jiang Zemin. They went to school together at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai and have stayed in touch ever since. So much for making China answer on trade.

Elaine Chao has heavily lobbied for normalized trade with communist China. She has also severely downplayed concerns about China’s growing military threat, espionage campaigns in the US and human rights abuses. We are already in a cyber war with China and the military tensions are mounting by the day. Chao is an enemy from within without a doubt.

Both Chao and McConnell serve on the board of the China Foundation, a nonprofit charity devoted to helping develop rural parts of China. That should raise red flags all over the place (pun intended). McConnell has been China’s biggest supporter in the Senate. Chao sought out John Huang to help raise money for Republican senators in 1989 – beating Bill and Hillary Clinton to the punch in 1992. In 1993, Huang, then head of Lippo Bank, rounded up a coalition of Chinese banks and individuals to sponsor Chao’s visit to Los Angeles as the new head of United Way. Huang gave McConnell $2,000 in illegal donations as part of a foreign money-laundering scheme — one of only two contributions Huang made to Republicans. When Chinagate broke, Chao decried the prosecution of Huang and claimed… you guessed it… racism.

Richard Fisher Jr., a former Heritage analyst who is footnoted in the declassified version of the bipartisan Cox Report which documented Chinese espionage at US defense labs, has warned heavily of China’s goal of modernizing the People’s Liberation Army to project power past the mainland’s waters, targeting US allies like Taiwan and even the US. Fisher left Heritage and it is said that Chao was behind the departure because he raised national security concerns over China and her military.

Chao seems very chummy with the insurance giant AIG who has business in China. Money and trade are flowing through Chao and her contacts both here in the States and in China. She is on the board of directors of Bloomberg Philanthropies. She has also served on the board of Wells Fargo, who, like Bloomberg, has bankrolled anti-coal efforts. Chao, 63, is a Taiwanese immigrant and has also served as chairwoman of the Federal Maritime Commission. She became director of the Peace Corps in 1991 and led the United Way of America from 1992-1996.

US Senate documents made public in 2001, show Chao had been for the preceding four years a board member of the Birmingham, Alabama based Protective Life Corp., holding 7,000 shares. Protective Life is associated with Chinese insurance companies in Indonesia and China, including China Resources Holdings Co., an intelligence-gathering front for China’s Peoples Liberation Army.

Because she is Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao will face no opposition and will be confirmed as Transportation Secretary. Along with her confirmation, China will be brought directly into the White House.

Leading Pro-Palestine Communist Trains Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

protesters-fight-against-dakota-access-pipeline

A seasoned Communist Party USA activist has been lending her revolutionary expertise to the often violent “peaceful protesters” seeking to permanently shut down the nearly completed and highly strategic Dakota Access Pipeline.

Communists from all over the world have converged on the DAP site, near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, over the last several months to support tribal people from several states as they seek to further weaken an already struggling US economy.

Judith LeBlanc

Judith LeBlanc

Judith LeBlanc, Massachusetts raised, but a member of the Caddo tribe from Oklahoma, has been working with the protesters from the very beginning. This has been through her leadership role in the militant dominated Native Organizers Alliance.

The Native Organizers Alliance has been supporting tribal leaders as they develop strategies to counter the powerful economic elites behind the Dakota Access Pipeline…

Judith LeBlanc, director of the Native Organizers Alliance, has been working to support native leaders as they develop strategies to continue to challenge these powerful forces. In mid-September she helped lead a four-day training at Standing Rock with tribal officials, native-led non-profits, and local community and political leaders on power mapping, strategic campaign planning, and direct action.

Says LeBlanc:

For me, it’s a blessing in a moment like today to be the director of a national network of native groups, leaders, and organizers who are supporting grassroots native community organizing, the Native Organizers Alliance. As my Mom always said, “It is not enough to be right.” If you believe you are right, then get organized.

Earlier this month, Judith LeBlanc and three other “native women leaders”: Eryn Wise of the International Indigenous Youth Council, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) and member of the 2016 Democratic Platform Committee Deborah Parker (Tulalip Tribes) staged a sit-in at the headquarters of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, then led the crowd of about 1,000 people down the streets of Washington, even passing by the newly opened Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

LeBlanc has been a Communist Party USA leader since the 1970s. She has held several leadership positions in the party and has worked in leadership positions in the peace movement.

She has also spoken several times before the United Nations, mainly in support of the Palestinian cause, which she has championed for several decades.

The Dakota Access Pipeline protesters are being guided by serious communists and terrorist sympathizers.

Labor for Palestine, another communist controlled group, has been active in the North Dakota protests.

When the protesters turn to violence or sabotage, as they almost certainly will, there is a fair chance that the inspiration will come through the Palestinian connection.

Law enforcement needs to get on top of this situation quickly before someone is killed, or a serious act of sabotage or terrorism is committed.

Tom Burke

Tom Burke, aka Tomas de Bourgha, has been a leader of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! in Chicago and Minneapolis,

He now lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In the 1980s, Tom Burke was involved in the Maoist Freedom Road Socialist Organizationand their college front group the Progressive Student Network. He helped lead the 1990 split in Freedom Road which led to the formation of their rival Freedom Road Socialist Organization FightBack! faction.

Tom Burke was an activist with Humanity Allied Against Racist Mascots and the pro-Irish Republican Irish American Student Association.

On April 3rd, 2008, Tom Burke of Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! endorsed Bail Out the People Movement‘s “March on Wall Street”;

Because we must demand that the needs of the people come before the greed of the super rich. Millions are jobless and homeless, and millions more will be living on the streets if the government continues to waste trillions of dollars on saving wealthy bankers instead of saving people.

In October 2008, several thousand college professors, students and academic staff signed a statement in support of Bill Ayers in solidarity with former Weather Underground Organization terrorist Bill Ayers.

In the run up to the U.S. presidential elections, Ayers had come under considerable media scrutiny, sparked by his relationship with presidential candidate Barack Obama.

We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack…

Tom Burke signed the statement.

On September 24th, the FBI raided the homes of twelve FightBack! supporters activists across the USA, looking for links to foreign terrorist organizations. Burke was one of those whose home was raided and who is being investigated by the FBI.

70 student activists from all over the country arrived in Gainesville, Florida to attend the annual Students for a Democratic Society National Convention on Oct. 27-28, 2012.

Tom Burke, of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, was also on one panel.

Afterwards, Burke said, “Speaking to the SDS Convention was a powerful experience. I spoke about the FBI raids and grand jury repression, including members of SDS. I relayed my student experience with the Divest Now! campaign to smash racist Apartheid in South Africa. Then, with the Progressive Student Network in the 1980s, we organized campus protests against CIA recruitment. We acted in solidarity with the revolutionary movements of Nicaragua and El Salvador. In 1991, the PSN helped organize mass rallies to oppose the first U.S. Gulf War on Iraq.”

Burke continued, “Today’s student activists have known nothing but the U.S. always being at war. I spoke and emphasized the importance of supporting liberation struggles in Colombia and Palestine today, to stop U.S. intervention.”

Tom Burke, right

Grand Rapids, Michigan-based activist Tom Burke, one of the lead organizers for what’s billed as the Coalition to Stop Trump and March on the RNC, says the protest has two aims. “One is it helps to build movements in this country by tying local groups to national issues. Secondly, it has an impact on the elections because the media starts to cover what the protesters are saying. We have a very different agenda than the Republican Party— and this year, in particular.”

Gratitude and Thanksgiving

By: T F Stern | T F Stern’s Rantings

thankThis morning London, my granddaughter, came over to greet me as I reviewed the latest headlines in the news on the Internet. She pointed to an umbrella which is stored in the corner behind my work-station; a serious look took over her face as she reminded me not to ever open the umbrella in the house. A couple of days ago, London got in trouble playing in the house with the umbrella and she wanted me to know she understood how important it was to follow the rules.

I nodded in agreement as we reviewed how silly it would be to have an open umbrella in the house since its purpose was to keep rain from falling on us. I looked up at the ceiling and explained how blessed we were to have a roof over our heads to protect us from the rain. London looked thoughtfully at the ceiling and smiled.

It’s also nice to have a house for when it gets cold outside; again she smiled and pretended to hug herself as if being warmed by an imaginary heater. And in the summer we have air conditioning to keep us comfortable too.

London may have taken these conveniences for granted up until this moment; but as she considered the light rain falling outside, that she was enjoying the comforts provided by the house which she lived in, gratitude for all these blessings was evident by the look on her face.

May we all have a similar moment of appreciation for whatever blessings have been provided in our lives.

If you watch much television, the advertisements tend to make a mockery of Thanksgiving; a not so subtle way of redirecting our thoughts. Instead of getting down on our knees and thanking the Lord, we’re being desensitized and programmed into accepting this time of year as a spending orgy, a chance to prove we have more money than brains as we go about going into debt for items we really can’t afford.

Black Friday with its door buster sales has, for far too many folks, become more important than sitting around the dinner table with family in quiet thanks for what has been provided and prepared.

This nation was founded under the direction of wise individuals who understood our relationship with God, Creator of all we have, to include Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Our blessings come from above and we are showered with them in great abundance; consider what we have been given, not what you don’t have.

London is correct, you shouldn’t open your umbrella in the house, let God’s blessings fall all around you and be grateful, truly grateful; that’s why we celebrate Thanksgiving.

George Mason Univ. Gets Their Fascism On – Who Knew It Was A Crime To Hang Anti-Terrorism Posters?

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

oleg

My friend and compatriot Oleg Atbashian found that out the hard way. Imagine my surprise this morning to find out he had been roughed up and arrested in Fairfax, Virginia. His crime was hanging anti-terrorism posters on the university campus. Oh, and bonus… he wasn’t even read his rights. He is now out on $8,000 bail for putting up pro-Israel posters to combat a pro-Islamist conference at George Mason University. He faces the very real prospect of five years in prison for allegedly committing a “class 6 felony.”

Oleg is an artistic genius. His satirical site, The People’s Cube, is one of the very best out there. Oleg did the graphics for NoisyRoom and has done work for Trevor Loudon and Cliff Kincaid as well. He is a member of a small circle of commie hunters out there. We all have very long memories and we take it very personally when one of our own is treated like this.

Oleg: “Back in my Soviet dissident days, when I was collecting signatures in defense of Andrei Sakharov, I was screamed at, threatened, and lectured by the KGB and Communist functionaries,” Oleg says. “What I never imagined was that in the United States, the land of the free, I would not only be subjected to similar treatment, but go to jail.”

oleg1

Daniel Greenfield of FrontPage Mag and Sultan Knish fame had this to say regarding Oleg:

Oleg’s mixture of art and satire took off with Communists for Kerry. He’s the mastermind behind The People’s Cube and his tweaking of the radical left and its alliance with Islamic terrorists allowed him to continue the same fight he had pursued in the days of the Soviet Union. But as the US comes to resemble the USSR, political satire and activism carries a serious price.

This is what happened to Oleg when he put up some of his Freedom Center posters challenging the anti-Semitic environment created by the left’s alliance with Islamic terrorists on campus.

This was supposed to be a two-day poster campaign, to counteract the George Mason University hosting an official national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is an anti-Semitic organization with well-documented ties to Hamas – a terrorist group whose stated goal is to exterminate the Jews. The GMU poster campaign was conceived by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

In every communist regime or despotic hellhole throughout history, one of the first groups of people they go after are the artists. They are considered especially dangerous. That’s when they aren’t going after Jews of course. Oleg went to GMU to hang posters and stickers against Justice in Palestine. A group that has terrorist connections. Instead he was treated like a domestic terrorist himself.

The police knew which rental car he had and as they were putting up three posters with wheat paste, the police arrested them for destroying property… it’s totally water soluble and the posters would have washed off with the first rain. Instead of giving Oleg and his partner a citation or a warning, the campus police frisked them, cuffed them and took them in. They wanted to make an example of him.

Here is the first part of Oleg’s story about persecution for doing nothing more than hanging anti-terrorism posters in defense of Israel and Jews in Virginia:

My part in it was to create provocative artwork for the posters and to hang them around the GMU campus, as well as to distribute flyers in order to raise awareness among the students, faculty, and the administration about the true meaning of their support for the SJP conference.

On the first day, my friend and I placed a few stickers on walls, poles, and signs around the GMU campus. We also placed paper flyers inside and outside the university buildings. We had decided to hang the larger posters on the following night, right before the start of the SJP conference.

Arriving at the campus in the evening, we noticed a large police presence everywhere, including the campus Starbucks. From what we overheard at the tables, the police were on the lookout for people posting “disturbing” flyers. At one point we considered canceling our mission due to this higher risk, but then decided to hang a few posters in new locations, in order to get the message out more effectively.

We only had time to hang three large posters when, at about 4am, our car was pulled over by a GMU PD cruiser with flashing lights. As we found out later, they already had a description of our rental KIA Optima. Officer M.J. Guston and his female partner, Officer Daniels, requested to see our drivers’ licenses, which they took away. Then they inquired if we had any weapons and proceeded with the visual search, noticing our bucket with mixed wheat paste and some rolled posters on the back seat, covered with towels.

The police officers took pictures of the contents of our car and retrieved some of the loose fliers from the floor as evidence. They claimed that since we were covering the posters and flyers with towels, we intended to conceal our wrongdoing. We explained that the towels were needed to wipe our hands, to prevent the bucket from spilling, and to stop the papers from rolling around the car, which was the honest truth.

The officers said we had been photographed while attaching the flyers, but never showed us the actual pictures. They ordered us to give them our car key and to step out of the car. Then we were told to put our hands behind our backs and to spread our legs. Officer Guston then held my thumbs behind my back with his left hand, while his right hand gave me a complete and very thorough pat-down and searched the content of my pockets. He repeated the same procedure with my friend, repeatedly asking us if we had any kind of weapons on us or in the car.

My friend and I tried to be as friendly and cooperative as the situation allowed, but that had no effect. We were ordered to sit on the curb, as Officer Daniels told us that the content of our posters was violent and disturbing to some students, especially the one with the Hamas terrorist standing in pools of blood over his dead victims. Such interpretation flipped our message on its head entirely, turning it from sympathy for the victims of violence into a threat of violence.

It dawned on me that the reason they kept searching us and asking about weapons was that they were convinced we were members of some violent militant group of “domestic terrorists” who meant to do harm to the students – a stereotype largely created by the “progressive” media and unscrupulous politicians. And now we, defenseless artists, armed with nothing but brushes and paper, became victims of this manipulative mythology, which caused the police to treat us with extreme prejudice. At the same time, the officers who handled us as if we were terrorists, seemed to be blissfully unaware of the true nature of the SJP they were defending, and their organization’s very real ties to a known terrorist organization with a record of mass murder, kidnappings, and targeting innocent civilians.

Since they couldn’t find any weapons and our message was protected by the First Amendment, the officers decided to charge us with “destruction of property worth of at least $2,500,” which was a “class 6 felony.” (Editor’s note: According to VA law, intentional destruction of property that is worth $1,000 or more is a class 6 felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a maximum of $2,500 in fines.) They claimed we had “super-glued” our fliers to school signs and it was impossible to peel them off.

It didn’t matter that we never used permanent glue, or that there could be other volunteers on campus who posted the stickers they could have downloaded online. Our wallpaper paste was made of wheat and water; we only used it on three large posters, which could be easily removed with water and would be washed off by the first rain. The rest were stickers, printed on regular self-adhesive paper found in any office store. They, too, could be easily removed with a tissue soaked in Goo Gone, a common household cleaner found in any dollar store. We even offered to remove any posters and stickers for them, then catch our flights in the morning and never bother them again. But the officers weren’t interested in that. They seemed to have a rather inflexible phantom image of us as dangerous felons and “right-wing extremists” who belonged in jail.

A phone call that Officer Guston made inside his cruiser seemed to reinforce their determination. Stepping out into the street, he ordered us to put our hands behind our backs and then handcuffed us so tightly that our bruises were painful to the touch even on the following day. Then he emptied our pockets, took away my hat, and placed everything in two plastic bags.

We were then taken to the back of his police car. Officer Guston never read us our rights; he simply declared that we were under arrest for committing felony and were going to jail. The partitioned space in the back of his police cruiser was extremely narrow, which forced my friend and I to contort our bodies in order to avoid additional pain from leaning on our tightly handcuffed hands behind our backs.

The full account can be found at American Thinker… please go there and read it all. It was Oleg this time, but it could be any of us next.

oleg2

The arresting officer told them they could never come to GMU again. What happened to free speech and your constitutional rights? These charges should not stick… they were not read their rights and therefore the charges should be dismissed. But with the Progressive courts and judges we have now, who knows what will happen.

Oleg quoted George Orwell: “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” He adds: “that is what the future of America also will look like if progressivism and political correctness continue to expand their grip on every sphere of life.”

Oleg survived the Soviet Union and persecution there. He’ll survive this. But it is just disgraceful that in the Land of the Free that someone would be treated this way for exercising free speech. Just shameful and it figures it is in Terry McAuliffe’s state. There was no permanent damage done as claimed… but a man who is an acclaimed Soviet dissident was treated like a domestic terrorist, while the real terrorists were giving lectures on campus. Or is it a crime now to stand up to Islamic extremists and speak out in defense of Israel?

Marxist/Muslim Axis: ‘Enemies Within’ Documentary Exposes Proposed DNC Chair Keith Ellison

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Filmmaker Trevor Loudon’s new documentary The Enemies Within exposes the communist and radical Islamist background of the probable new leader of the Democratic Party.

Rep. Keith Ellison, center

Rep. Keith Ellison (D}, Minnesota), center

Keith Ellison, a Marxist/Muslim Democratic Congressman from Minnesota, could soon become the Democratic National Committee chairman.

With the endorsements of Senators Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders and more than 250,000 signatures on an “Ellison for chairman” petition, Representative Ellison is the early favorite for the position.

Many writers have focused on Ellison’s Islamic beliefs, but few have examined his extensive Marxist connections.

Trevor Loudon’s The Enemies Within poses a simple question – “Could your Congressman pass an FBI background check?”

With close ties to both the Communist Party USA and several Muslim Brotherhood front groups, Trevor Loudon believes that Congressman Ellison would have no chance of passing even the most the rudimentary type of background check, applied to the most low-level federal government employees.

Yet within days, Representative Ellison may lead one of this country’s two main political parties.

Congratulations to President-Elect Trump and his supporters

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump and his millions of supporters, for your fantastic victory at the polls last night. I thought it would be close and thought Hillary Clinton had the slight edge, so I was delighted to be proven wrong.

trump

It was a momentous night –  carrying on the nationalist momentum we saw with Brexit and the anti-communist push back now underway in Ukraine, Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia.

It was a victory for all patriotic Americans, sick of Washington corruption, globalism, military defeatism and watching Lady Liberty being made the “easy woman” for all the world.

Now comes the hard part: Making sure that President Trump does indeed close the borders, re-patriate illegals, close down the Muslim Brotherhood in America, open up the energy fields, abolish Obamacare, de-regulate the economy, lower taxes, re-build the military, appoint constitutional Supreme Court justices and restore the the US Constitution to its rightful place of honor.

Mr. Trump’s victory is a victory for all freedom loving people, everywhere. Just as Brexit encouraged American freedom fighters, Mr. Trump’s win will spur on patriotic and nationalist movements all over the planet.

I’ve worried in the past about Mr. Trump’s attitude towards Russia. I hope Mr. Trump will stand with the Ukraine against Putin, stand with  NATO and reassure your traditional allies of America’s continued support.

I also hope President Trump will try to to bring the Philippines back out of the clutches of Russia and China.

As my readers well know, I have long been, and remain, a supporter of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. I intend to support him if he ever chooses again to seek the Presidency. The Constitution is my issue. May President Trump be a vigilant guardian of the greatest political document ever written.

No one can deny that Mr. Trump and his supporters have won a great victory for all of us and deserve our deepest gratitude.

Thank you all.

Thanks for the Memories

By: T F Stern | T F Stern’s Rantings
thanks

I went to the Spring Creek Village assisted living center where my dad spent his last days to make sure our account was settled up, no loose ends.  We’d been double charged for a ‘one time only’ fee on the second month’s billing which we were told would be subtracted on the following month’s rent; but dad never made it to the next month.

My father died October 25, 2016 and we made it a point to remove all items we’d provided for his comfort the very same day, leaving the room as it was when he first arrived.

Today I looked over at their ‘occupancy availability board’; they had a large white board in the manager’s office showing new move ins and those who’d moved out.  There was dad’s name showing he died October 25th along with his move out date of….Nov 7th…?

I pointed out the discrepancy to the manager and reminded her that we’d made sure to remove dad’s personal items on the same day he died.  Her response was, “That’s in the contract”.

There is a clause in the residency contract which states the assisted living center can charge up to 10 days rent after the death of a renter.  Apparently we could have left dad’s body in the room for another week; not that the health department would have approved.

I reminded the manager that we’d been over charged by $1500.00, expecting a refund for that amount and perhaps a refund for the last five days of October since dad didn’t occupy the room that last week of the month.

Again the manager explained, “That’s in the contract”, as she handed me a due bill for  $186.50, the difference between the $1500.00 we’d been over charged and the ten days which the assisted living center considered an opportunity to extract additional money from the deceased’s bank account.

Spring Creek Village provided exceptional care while my father was in their facility and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an assisted living facility.  That said, they have an unusual way of interpreting their lease contracts.

I pointed out that this was morally wrong and as a business practice was no different than gouging the dead.  I know, “That’s in the contract”.  But the contract indicated that the assisted living center ‘can’ charge up to 10 days following the ‘move out’ of a resident; it doesn’t say that it ‘must’ charge the full ten days.

I suppose they were only honoring the memory of my dearly departed father as they hit the Enter Key on the cash register, or as Bob Hope used to say, Thanks for the memories.
