#SchumerShutdown – Update

The Swamp, Dateline January 22nd, 2018

Senator Schumer has parked the Clown Car on the democratic side of the Senate parking garage and he has graciously de-linked DACA from a continuing resolution to fund the federal government. So, in other words, we are where President Trump was three days ago. We  have a miracle only hours ago, a bill passed to keep the government open. The #SchumerShutdown nightmare is over.

With key advisors like Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Tim Kaine and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who needs friends?! Wow, the Clown Car occupants are scattering like roaches hit by light in the middle of the night. They have moved under the appliances known as CNN and MSNBC to provide cover and fake news!

Original article below published January 19th, 2018

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), 800 thousand of them whom arrived illegally, are being prioritized by Democrats over the rights of 320 million tax paying American citizens . Even though the current illegal DACA arrangement implemented by an illegal Executive Order by former President Obama is not due to expire until March 5th, 2018, the Democrats (#SchumerShutdown) are NOT willing to pass a continuous resolution to fund the government.

Couple questions:

  1. Is this a cover-up and a distraction to the cover-up of the phony dossier and Democratic Party collusion with a British Spy and phony dossier?
  2. So the Dems are prioritzing illegals “rights” over the tax paying rights of citizens of the United States?
  3. The Dems are willing to let the military and their families go without pay while we are at war? By the way, Congress still gets paid in a government shutdown. Isn’t that interesting. Different rules for the ruling elite.
  4. Was the #shithole fake news episode really about the set-up to DACA? Of course it was! But the fake news will not report this.

The Clown Car is Rolling

The Swamp, Dateline January 17th, 2018

The Clown Car that is the White House Press Pool was on full display yesterday interrogating the White House physician, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson on President Trump’s health. Much to their disappointment, Dr. Jackson declared President Trump to be in “excellent health.”

As the phony Russian dossier and collusion loses steam,  the press pushes a new false narrative that the president has dementia, or early onset Alzheimer’s disease or some other psychosis that would build the case to remove him from office. Once again, the press was very disappointed with the results when Dr. Jackson explained the  cognitive exam he administered on President Trump resulted in a perfect score of 30 out of 30 questions answered correctly.

Here are a few of the “serious” questions asked by the press in the Clown Car during yesterday’s press conference:

ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl asked, “Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald’s and fried chicken and all those Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he’s in?”

NBC News reporter Hallie Jackson noted that Trump’s weight put him just shy of obesity, based on body mass index, and asked the doctor, “You’re confident of that number? Dr. Jackson said yes.

Other gems included:

“Does the president watch too much TV?”

“Is he limited to one scoop of ice cream?”

“Did you address drug addiction?”

Much to the Clown Cars disappointment, President Trump is in “excellent health.” However, this hasn’t put their narrative to bed as they continue to question Dr. Jackson’s exam, the president’s health and his fitness to office. The only thing slowing the clown car down on this topic is #shithole gate which is the presses new foil for Trump being a racist. Clown Car madness continues.

On a more serious note, there are a few Clown Car questions:

  1. Who is driving the Clown Car? MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough or CNN’s Jay Tapper or maybe Jim Acosta
  2. Is the Clown Car gas,  electric or foot powered?
  3. Is Keith Olberman or Stephen Colbert in charge of honking the horn?
  4. Did MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow or Laurence O’Donnell design the clown outfits?
  5. Who is funding the Clown Car?
  6. Who are the Dark Clowns?

What is Needed in Haiti – Real Change

Dateline January 13th, 2018

The 53rd Regiment is republishing this artile about what is needed in Haiti to truly effect real change. Since there is now great interest in Haiti with President Trump’s alleged inartful description of Haiti among  other countries by Senator Dick Durbin, it is an opportunity to call attention once again to what is needed in Haiti. The good news is if you truly care and want to get beyond words, you can help. Please take the time to read Patrick’s article below.

The 53rd Regiment can personally attest to the phenominal work being done by the Haitian Project. My daughter and I have a life long memory visiting the school over Thanksgiving eight years ago and being extremely impressed watching the children learn difficult subjects in three languages. Outrage is cheap these days. If you really want to make a statement and help, make a donation to the Louverature Cleary School. The 53rd Regiment is extremely proud to note that we have been supporting Haiti and this school for over two decades. Many members of the 53rd are supporters. The Haitian Project would welcome your support.

Article as originally posted May 11th, 2016 follows. 

By Deacon Patrick Moynihan, President of The Haitian Project and Head of Louverture Cleary School

It’s time to get back to what works.

Throughout history, education has proven itself to be the most reliable tool for promoting the advancement of individuals and societies. Still, major foundations (think Gates and Clinton) and philanthropic initiatives around the world fail to properly prioritize education as the best road out of poverty.  They prefer instead more ephemeral and emotional initiatives like health care and shelter; or more “exciting” ideas like microfinance and mobile banking.  While there is certainly a place for relief (food, water, shelter etc.), it seems the world has wrongly conflated these things with development and now heavily funds what are in many cases symptoms of poverty, not solutions to poverty.

Education, however, is a solution. And, we need more of it.

For the last 20 years, I have lived and worked in Haiti with my family as president of The Haitian Project, Inc., which supports and operates Louverture Cleary School, a top-notch, tuition free Catholic secondary boarding school in Haiti that forms the future servant-leaders of the country. We empower the young individual to be a catalyst for change in their own life and in their community.

Time and again our students and alumni do prove that education is the surest way out of poverty and towards a brighter future for Haiti. In a country where just 3% of young people graduate high school and over 70% of college graduates leave the country, 90% of our alumni are either studying or working IN HAITI. Many are earning 10-15 times the per capita income of Haiti.  They then use their own success to build strong families and to send their own children to school, and often their extended family as well.

All of our alumni are giving back to their communities and their country. This is by design. The school’s motto comes from Mt. 10:8; “What you receive for free, you must give for free.”

Education works because it not only helps the individual make the most out of the current opportunities and infrastructure available, it helps him or her develop new opportunities and build more advanced infrastructure. Therefore, education is potentially the most basic of development tools. It also is the one that naturally causes and allows the individual to become part of their own advancement. Unlike medical procedures, loans or something that remains external, education is internalized by the person who receives it and it becomes their tool.

It is clear that Haitians themselves prioritize education and recognize its potential.  The world should listen:

  • While just 20% of foreign aid is spent on education, Haitians make education their priority by dedicating over 80% of their remittances to pay for the education of their children.
  • The high demand for education has ensured that teaching is one of the most highly paid professions in Haiti.
  • Every May at LCS 250-300 Louverturian hopefuls line up around the block at 4 am to take our entrance exam and to have a shot at an education that will undoubtedly change their life, and also the lives of those around them.

Real change in Haiti can come only through Haitians themselves, and education equips them to make that change personally and for their country. My 20 years in Haiti has taught me that there are no “silver bullets.” But, they have also taught me that there is hope. The stories of our graduates below leave no doubt in my mind that Haiti’s better tomorrow is an achievable reality.

Corrupt Government = Phony Dossier

The Swamp, Dateline January 11th, 2018

This should scare all Americans. The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Campaign hired a former British spy to create a phony dossier against President Trump fabricating Russian collusion that alleges salacious activities that ranged from criminal to deviant in nature. This dossier was then used by senior officials in the Intelligence Community (IC), likely senior officials under DNI Clapper or CIA Director Brennan, to get a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant, a “wire tap,” to collect information on Trump and his campaign. So it is highly likely one of these two helped justify the phony dossier.

The fake news has reported the dossier as opposition research but when you use a foreign agent and unknown paid resources by a for profit company, Fusion GPS, to justify a FISA warrant to a US court the whole system of checks and balances has been corrupted. The first question by the FBI should have been, “Wait, you are justifying a FISA warrant off of a foreign agent paid for by a political campaign and unverified third party sources?” Of course this is what America came to expect from the professionalism of the FBI and IC. Of course this is before we learned the wife of a senior FBI official worked for Fusion GPS; or the wife of the #2 FBI official under Comey received $400K in campaign donations from the Clinton campaign; or the two senior FBI officials assigned to investigate the Trump campaign were texting bias and hatred toward Trump as they built their case and carried on an affair. The question highlighted above was never asked because of extreme bias and prejudice of senior FBI officials. Comey’s FBI became a political pawn for the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice and the political hacks that masqueraded as professionals.

Furthermore, DNI Clapper and CIA Brennan grossly failed to do their due diligence in the matter as it appears  they supported the political aim to destroy Trump before he became president. How do I know this? Ultimately, I do not but I’m reading the puzzle pieces like many IC professionals do as part of their jobs, putting them all together. Real Intel professionals don’t tweet policy positions or more anti-Trump rhetoric after they leave the agency like Brennan does regularly. Real Intel professionals don’t take a position on CNN to broadcast more Trump hate to fulfill the fake news agenda like LTG (R) Clapper does. We have a serious crisis in our government and at least three departments have likely been corrupted by highly politicized “leaders” that allowed themselves to be corrupted.

There is much more to cover on this matter. You can take a modicum of comfort that 53rd Regiment is covering this issue but as you likely suspect, the Deep State is covering tracks and destroying evidence each passing day. Stay tuned.

Toxic News

The Swamp

Dateline January 9th, 2018

There are elements of Fake News regarding the Trump presidency that are surreal to watch.  The hate, the orchestrated phony presentations, the ignorant partisan guests and the out right contemptuous behavior toward the 45th President of the United States is without precedent. In a word, the “mainstream media” has become toxic.

Each morning, beginning from 6 – 9 AM EST, MSNBC Morning Joe & CNN New Day dump toxic words of waste on the American public without fail. Both shows are a three hour hit job on the president. There is zero news, just three hours of Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo presenting fake toxic news with condescension, immaturity and little regard for the dignity of the Office of the Presidency. These two fabricators masquerading as newsmen are much more interested in reading their own headlines and securing accolades from their leftwing peers. Their broadcasts are never interrupted with real news or facts, just spew.

The 53rd Regiment strongly recommends you avoid these toxic broadcasts of hate, misinformation and toxicities. People want to start their day with an uplifting message, not this trifle and inconsolable hate directed at President Trump and those that voted for him!

Enjoy your day folks by avoiding the Scarborough and Cuomo toxic dump.

Strap in boys …

 The DC Swamp, Nats Country, January 5, 2018

Spring Training Message, Day One

They’re not giving you a shot! They have already written you off. No chance, zero! Why even put the uniform on and take the field?

Who are we talking about? The NY Mets ladies and gentlemen, the New York Mets, the Amazins’.

All the prognosticators, the MLB channel, the formerly great sports network ESPN, the NY Post, the Daily News and the list goes on. The Mets have no chance. The Nats are going to use you to pad their first place lead. The Nats players believe they’ll go 15-3 against you. Bryce Harper believes those three losses will be when he is rested. End of message

Well, we are a little over a month away from Mets pitchers and catchers reporting to Port St. Lucie, Fla. on February 12th. There are quite a few Amazings’ that have something to prove after getting knocked down and embarrassed last year. Hey, “there is no crying in baseball” gentlemen but this writer believes the death of the Mets young pitching staff has been greatly exaggerated. You might say, it is fake news! With a new manager in Mickey Callaway and a new pitching coach in Dave Eiland, a new throwing program to boot during the off season,  I‘m putting the NL East, the Nats, the Dodgers and Cubs on notice (that’s right, I wrote it!). These young lads have something to prove. Beware! Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler, among others, were knocked on their ass last season and there is no better cure than personal embarrassment to motivate an individual and a team that wants to be great again. Jacob deGrom did his best to hold the fort in 2017 but it was too much without his pitching teammates. There is a new chapter to be written in 2018 and it is time for the Mets pitchers to Make the Amazins’ Great Again! #MAGA!!!

Two America’s

The Swamp, January 3rd, 2018

This article was originally published under the title “Cartwright & Clinton — HMMM …” on 30 January 2016.  This article is highly relevant  to how we are seeing two America’s emerge; in one America 99% of us are subject to the rule of law. In the other America, the democrat party, old media and Deep State activisits are above the law.  These three elements are the true 1%ers. Gen Flynn, one count of perjury, guilty. Clinton, thousands of highly classified documents and sensitive government emails compromised, given favorable treatment by the FBI, “extremely careless.”  Original article follows … 

Dateline January 31st, 2016. Marine, warrior, a former vice chairman of the JCS has pleaded guilty to making false statements during an investigation into a leak of classified information about a covert cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Unlike Clinton, he didn’t claim “I can’t remember.” Retired Marine Gen. James Cartwright entered the plea at a hearing Monday. When the judge asked if Cartwright understood the charge, he said, “I do, sir.” Cartwright  originally told investigators that he was not the source of classified information contained in a book published by a newspaper author, according to unsealed charging documents.

Cartwright played the Washington game never realizing he was just a 99%er, he was a pawn on the Washington checkerboard. He was expandable. He danced with the rags of the devil, the NY Times, and has now paid the price for it tarnishing his stellar career and reputation. One more highly decorated military officer to be taken down by the Obama-Clinton regime joining McCrystal, Petraeus and Flynn among others. He, like them, were not part of the protected class of democratic politicians like Hillary Clinton, the 1%er who breaks all the handling rules for classified information destroying 33,000 State Department emails on her private server set-up to avoid public scrutiny and FOIA requests. Cartwright, although achieving tremendous statue as a Four Star General Officer in the Marine Corps, one of the absolute best, did break the law. Unlike Clinton, he expects to pay a price because he knows what duty, honor, country looks, smells and feels like. Although Cartwright committed a crime, Hillary Clinton doesn’t deserve to even shine his boots.

Cartwright’s sins are 1/33,000th of Clinton’s but somehow, someway FBI Director Comey brings this one to prosecution. The law is the law, unless of course Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch instruct otherwise.

Wake up people, we are slowly being boiled in warm water and our liberty and justice is in peril.

Dateline: 5 July 2016 — Update: Sadly, we have two America’s. In one America 99% of us would have been prosecuted for violating federal law for failure to properly handle classified information and conducting government business on a personal private server. In the new transformed America ushered in by Obama, DoJ Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and Clinton, the elites protect their own as they did today with Hillary Clinton.

(Dateline 30 January 2016) We have two America’s. In one America the 99%ers follow the law and use government computer systems and government email addresses provided. In another America the 1%ers use their private servers, private email accounts and their personal devices to do government business, expressively forbidden and against the law. In one America 99% of government employees read and abide by policies established and put in place to uphold the interests of the nation and respect the laws of the land. In another America, the 1%ers find these laws to not apply to them because they are a privileged class that we are lucky to have “leading” us. To the 1%ers it is inconvenient to abide by the laws for the public because they know better than the 99%ers and after all, these laws are for the public, not for them.

Classified information? Why should that make a difference to the 1%ers? After all, they know what is really classified and their judgment affords them the superior authority to make decisions on what is classified and what is not. The 1%ers know better than the classification authorities that have decades of experiences protecting information from our enemies and safeguarding US interests. The 1%ers may come and go in governmental political positions but who are the 99%ers in the three letter agencies that have been trained and have rich experience classifying documents and protecting means and methods to judge them?

Snowden is a 99%er, he should be prosecuted. General Petraeus, he hung around with the 1%ers but he’s really a 99%er, after all he was in the military. He was prosecuted. He at least got a plea bargain. PFC Manning, US Army, 99%er, Ft. Leavenworth (and later pardoned by President Obama because he is a protected class as a Transsexual)  preferred. CIA Director John Deutch, Clinton Administration, 1%er, brought classified information to his home and loaded it on personal computers, not prosecuted. Two America’s. 99%ers are prosecuted and go to jail for violating US policies compromising sensitive or classified information. 1%ers? The political class? The Elite? Not so much.

After seven years of the Obama Administration, we are about to find out how much of America’s Rule of Law remains intact. Can the FBI do its job without political pressure and influence? Does the rule of law apply to all Americans or just the 99%ers? Will Hillary Clinton be treated equally under the law or will there be exemptions, excuses and a fall person or two that covers the gross planned, orchestrated negligence? Will the Department of Justice follow the law? As a 99%er, it saddens me to even write that. It may be time to Occupy the DoJ. #Justice!

The Forgotten

January 1st, 2018 (Initially published November 12th, 2016)

Dedicated to my sister Marianne.

by Guardian 6

Vietnam Veterans were undervalued and underappreciated. The media helped create the narrative that this group of Veterans were baby killers and the dregs of society. They were spat at, discriminated against and disparaged by their peer group among others. All they did was answer their country’s call when they were drafted. They served at great risk to themselves and their families. They believed in a cause greater than themselves and their government’s call to duty. Many of them have been Forgotten.

Since Vietnam, we have gone to an all-volunteer military force. The last draft ended over 40 years ago but yet many of the Forgotten continue to serve our nation out of love for country, doing their patriotic part in helping to protect the United States of America. They feel a sense of duty to support and defend the American way of life.

Some present day political elites hold military members in a negative lite. This was reflected in John Kerry’s comment in 2004 about US troops serving in Iraq when he said to a group of college students that they could either work hard in school or “get stuck in Iraq.” Many of those troops who went to Iraq 2, 3 or 4 times went not because they loved war but because they love their country and Senators like John Kerry voted for them to go to war. You can debate whether the war was right or wrong but what can’t be debated are the sacrifice, valor and courage of these men and women who went to war by direction of their government. Thousands who went to Iraq and Afghanistan lost their life and tens of thousand more were wounded and many of them still suffer today. But in many circles, they have been Forgotten.

There is a new Forgotten class of Americans that dramatically impacted the Presidential Election of 2016 electing Mr. Trump over Secretary Clinton as President. Americans that feel their government has Forgotten them for the following reasons:

  • Selling them out for trade deals where the political class has Profited and American workers have lost their jobs, their livelihoods, and their opportunity to live the American dream
  • Election cycle after election cycle Americans elect politicians that fail to represent them and ultimately represent their own self-interests where they profit and the American worker loses
  • The new Forgotten economic class are talked down to or referred to as “Fly Over Country,” Rednecks, Racists, Bigots or worse
  • The new Forgotten economic class may be from small town America, or Americans raised with traditional values; Americans that still pray and go to church. For this, the government and media elites refer to them as out of touch and trying to take us back to the 1950’s, a reference to being racist

The same Americans that elected Trump fight the nation’s wars, build the nation’s highways, feed the nation from family farms, run small businesses and ultimately just try to live good lives and pass down the lessons of hard work and American values to their children.

… And after this election, many of the lawmakers, television news media,  print media and the political elite connected to the Washington Machine disparage the Forgotten and question how one could vote for Trump. It’s not a hard question to answer. It boils down to this – We love our country; we don’t want it transformed; we believe in the US Constitution; we want our military to be strong; we want freedom of religion protected; we want law and order; we support legal immigration and want our borders secure; we want economic opportunity throughout our land; and we want Supreme Court Justices that will defend life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans. We want a less intrusive government.

The Forgotten have spoken and they deserve your respect. They are your neighbors, your mechanic, your plumber, the Veteran and overall your fellow citizens.
