Why Is The American Government Committing Treason Against It’s Own People?

 

There are going to be somethings that some folks will be mad at me for insinuating such things about our government, some will call me unpatriotic for saying such a thing. Well, honestly, I think that the vast majority of the American people aren’t quite as naive as we were 50 years ago, or even say, one year ago.  I know that I am not the wisest human being to ever walk this planet but I have spent most of my 60 years trying to pay attention to reality. We all know by now that there are good and bad people in every profession. There are some professions that we all believe or joke about as being dirty whether it be so or not, like door to door magazine salesmen, used car dealers, bankers, insurance salesmen, NSA personnel, politicians, and oil executives. I have tried to always be completely truthful in everything I write on this site, always to the best of my knowledge and ability, and that is what I am going to do in this article.

Treason, yes treason, that is what I said. The first duty of any government is to keep its people safe. If they forsake this most basic vow, they are guilty of treason against their own people and this is what has been going on now for a very long time. Nothing this bad can last forever without horrible consequences and at any moment all of our lives can be changed in a flash. Back in 1980 I worked at a major U.S. oil company headquarters in Houston Texas in the executive protection field, I learned there just how easily major politicians can be bought and paid for with absolutely no regard for the welfare of the country by either the politician or the company. These actions I witnessed and heard sickened me to my core so I quit and moved many states away from that job.  Some of the things I heard there would make you mad, sick, or just laugh at some of the pure stupidity and how out of touch with reality they could be there in their ivory towers.

For many years I have traveled all over the United States many, many, times. I am going to tell you some of the things I have seen and that I know are absolute truth. When you travel through west Texas and you go through the Midland, Odessa area on interstate 20 you are going through the Permian Basin. This is where the best crude oil in the world is at, it is the oil that the rest of the world’s oil is judged by, this is the land that the Bush family worked, lived, and prospered in. If you look out in the fields on each side of the highway especially if you travel at night you will occasionally see vertical lights out in the fields, these are oil drilling rigs digging for the black gold. Does it make any sense to still be drilling? Most folks would say yes I think. But now, if you travel west Texas, Oklahoma, California, Wyoming, or North or South Dakota you will see something that might surprise you, at least at a minimum, even in west Texas, half or more of all the pump jacks are turned off and the new holes that get dug are then capped.

Now, do you ask why? Good question, now I am going to start telling you why I think that you and I and everyone in our country are having our safety sold out, it’s all about money and greed folks. I have some friends in these High Plains areas who work in these fields and have been told the same thing goes on up there, wells get dug, then capped. You probably know of this oil pipeline that Canada and some U.S. companies want to lay pipe for from Canada down to the Gulf Coast but the government won’t approve it because environmental organizations don’t want it running through sensitive land areas in places like Nebraska. Here is a thought, I know for a fact that there are oil refineries in states like Wyoming and Montana, why does the oil pipeline have any need to go all the way to the Gulf Coast, is it so the oil companies can export it? We have been told for decades now that we don’t have the oil  storage or refining capabilities that are needed. Why not? Create more jobs in these western states, build a lot more storage areas and the needed amount of oil refineries there to handle the new oil we are finding on our own land and if Canada want’s to run this joint pipeline adventure into the States there is plenty of unused government land to build these facilities on. These things should have been done many years ago for the reason of National Security, your security, my security, and the security of all of our families have been at stake for years, but we were then and now still being sold out.

Back as far as the early seventies our people learned that we are not and island unto our selves, that events outside of our borders can badly harm us. With the OPEC oil embargo OPEC countries cut way back on what they would sell us because we dared to back Israel. What has our government done to correct this national security issue? What is our current government doing now to correct this major safety issue? President Obama won’t approve the Canadian pipeline, and he has all but killed the coal industry and the nuclear industry is being phased out, plus there are many, many oil fields that the government won’t give drilling permits for. Where are the new refineries and storage units for all the oil we are producing and the gas we are producing on our own shores, where are they? I know that oil and gas and coal are not the only forms or energy we use in our country, but they are a huge part of it at this time. The U.S. Department of Energy say’s that in 2012 we imported 40% of the oil we consume at this time, 40% folks. In this country we have seen when we  have a 2% down tick in the economy it throws us into a deep recession, at best. Folks, what would happen in this country if say even 30% of that 40% were shut off from us, that would be 12% loss. What would that do to our economy, to everyone’s lives, our jobs, our ability to get to them, also what would the cost of a gallon of gas be then?

If we the people are not the first concern for every one in our government, why not? Now I am going to spout a few figures to you that come from the Independent Statistics and Analyst Department of the U.S. Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy, from one of their web sites. We (oil companies) are exporting these following items, 1) Crude Oil 2) Crude Oil Products 3) Finished Motor Gasoline 4) Kerosene-Type Jet Fuel 5) Distillate Fuel Oil 6) Residual Fuel Oil 7) Propane/Polypropylene 8) here it just said “oil-oils”.  People, why is our government allowing the sale of any of this outside of our own borders? Their own stats say that we are importing 7.4 M.M.B.D. of crude oil while at the same time we are exporting 1.M.M.B.D., people, why is this being allowed. In the “Interest of National Security” these things could be stopped and corrected, why aren’t they? Money, greed, treason?

There are many real things that could have been done already to cut down on our imports while they were building the refineries and storage facilities that are needed. Any secure nation is not secure unless it is 100% self-sufficient in its energy requirements with large energy stock piles in case of any type of attack on that country. Folks, we are nowhere near being in a safe zone. Another part of this issue is the fact that we are importing energy from countries that hate us and who are supporting militant groups so that they can attack and kill us all. How ignorant is it that you give the people who want nothing more than to kill you the weapons and the bullets to do it with? That’s what we are doing and have been doing  for decades now, why is our government past and present trying to get us all killed? Is the answer the same as what I witnessed while working for that major oil company in Houston? Is it all about power, and greed and to hell with the people? Folks, it does seem that way to me.

One other quick issue I want to touch on before I close, again the government could have used the “for national security, or at least, for the good of the country” slogan to force these issues, and they do have the power to do exactly that in time of emergencies . Question is, why wait until you have the emergency before you make any plans or take the needed steps to survive the emergency? One of the things the government could have/should be enforcing is much more stringent MPG requirements for at least the past forty years. They have done some work toward it but not nearly enough. Think how much less fuel imports would be if all new cars sold in America were required to get 40 MPG in town and out, no exceptions, and all Pickups and SUV’s were required to get a minimum of 30 MPG in town and out. Why is it not a forced issue that every new vehicle made or sold in America has to be a Hybrid? These things can be done and should have been forced on the car makers decades ago. Would there have to be changes in the design and size of the units, of course. But think about it, if these laws were in effect now and our units were getting these MPG’s now how much of a savings would all of us have at the pump? Think of all the other places that money could be spent to improve our life styles and at the same time stimulate our economy. I will close now with this one very major issue. Our import export deficit is now over a trillion dollars a year and a huge portion is from imported energy. This policy is stupid and dangerous to every one of us. Our governments policies not only give our enemies the weapons they use to kills us with but in so doing, this export deficit is killing the value of our currency making the things we can buy much more expensive because the dollar is so down graded, and this hurts every one of us. So again, why the heck is our government putting every ones livelihood and lives at such risk? Is it as simple as power and greed?  Doesn’t it have to be something like that because or political and industrial complex leaders couldn’t possibly simply be this stupid could they?

As I said earlier in this article, there are good and bad people in every occupation, even politics. When I lived in northern Illinois back 40 odd years ago I had a real good Congressman, a man named John Anderson and I am blessed to have had an excellent Congressman in east Tennessee, a man named M.D. Phil Roe. I have had contacts with Congressman Roe a few times and I beg you, if you have a good Congressman or Senator, state or federal, please try to communicate these concerns to them before we either end up with a totally crippled country, or were all dead.

America Needs A Minimum Of 5 Presidential Choices This November: For Freedom!

 

For freedom? Yes, freedom from the monopoly of the Republican and the Democratic racket that they have been putting the American people through hell for decades now. Only the American political establishment, Holly Wood, and the major News Agencies seem to be the only ones who don’t get it that they do not represent the majority of the American people and/or our views. Republican Party, Ted Cruz, get a grip, you say “you will not negotiate with the Democrats”, folks Ted Cruz is the current King of Gridlock in D.C. as a rookie Senator, does he or anyone honestly believe that if he were our President that there would be less gridlock than there is now?

 

America, the land of the free and the home of the brave and the land where literally around half of adult Americans (18 and over) aren’t even registered to vote. Simple reason it’s because they don’t believe that their vote really counts for anything. Then there is the reality that even in Presidential election years we struggle to get a 50% turnout among the voters that are registered. That means that in the biggest election we have each four years that gets the most turn out, still only equals 25% of the adult population of Our Country coming out and voting in an average President election. Now folks, as you know the previous Presidential election cycles always limited us voters to one of two choices one each from the two big parties except for Mr. Wallace and Mr. Perot of course. These days the people who do turn our and vote have been electing people with no more than a 52/48 ratio, this means that approximately 1/2 of that 25% who voted or about 12 1/2% of the American population has been electing our Leaders, at the most 12.5%.

 

As I have said here before I believe that the Republican Party will figure out some way, any way, to make sure that Mr.Trump is not their flag barer. You must know as well as I do that if Mr. Trump is fangled out of the Republican Flag he is going to raise his own flag as a third-party Candidate. That leaves Mr. Cruz in the Birds Eye Seat right? That leaves him the as the Republicans nominee doesn’t it? No, not necessarily, you must be aware that the Republican Establishment hates the ground Mr. Cruz walks on, so why not elect Governor Kasich as the Pallbearer for their Party? You know that Mr. Cruz without a doubt would revolt and become the Tea Party’s Candidate? That is now three from the Republican field with one from the Democratic field, Ms. Hillary and or Mr. Sanders correct? Ms. Hillary has been prepping the pipe with messages of Mr. Sanders not really being a Democrat just in case she gets embarrassed and looses by any margin in New York. Thus putting her nomination of the people, by the people, (I am anti-Super- Delegates) in jeopardy. What I am saying is, if Ms. Hillary can not win the election of her Party without the ‘Supper-Delegates’ I totally believe that Mr. Sanders will split if ‘The Party’ ‘elects’ Ms. Hillary. This would be five possible people for us the public to vote for. #1) Ms. Hillary as the Democrats ordained. #2 Governor Kasich as the Republican nominee. #3 Mr. Cruz representing the Tea Party, this in my opinion would be the ‘Conservative wing’ of the main stream Republican Party.#4 Mr. Trump will need some party to hook to so he can be on the November ballot, he could represent the Liberal side of the Republican Party. I said Liberal because he does think outside of the D.C. Box that the two-party leaderships drill into their puppets, liberal in that sense. #5 Mr. Sanders as the Independent Senator from Vermont represents the Liberal side of the Democratic machine. Republicans thought that President Obama was way left liberal, Mr. Sanders if far left of President Obama. Ms. Hillary these days sometimes on some issues talks more like a Republican, just as her hubby does. ( Well, on the days the wind is blowing that way, it will be some other direction in a moment just hold on).

 

Okay folks, here are my main five I believe we should get to vote on this November 1st. I know there are other parties and good for them, best wishes, I mean that. There are Party’s like Green Peace whom seem to be on the ballots every four years, I am not saying there should only be five, I am saying at least. This you might well say would cause a situation where it would take even far less than 12.5% to win the Presidential election. The ‘safety’ for the American people on a vote like what I am suggesting would require that one Candidate would have to win at least 50.001% of the vote to capture the Nomination. Since this would almost always be the case one person would not get enough of the vote, so then take the top two and run them alone in an up or down election between the two highest vote receivers about seven days later. The American people would be far more involved in elections if they weren’t already slanted so that the people can’t ever win. Republicans, Democrats, Congress, the American people are sick of you and your statuesque.

Congress: Please Consider Trying Refugee Camps

 

 

Folks this is a wild idea that crossed my mind yesterday and as I pondered the physical and financial responses needed, it still seems like to me to be a better idea than anything that I see being done currently. This idea may be known to everyone else on earth and I’m  just the last one to catch on, or maybe it is something. Yes, I know that I have been putting off telling you what the idea is, so here goes, please ponder the whole picture before you decide to commit me.

 

As we all know there is a huge  crisis going on all across America’s southern border with Mexico. This fact is one well known to all of the current, and one would think, that all of the living former Governors of these southern border states also know, this Border Sovereignty problem is many generations old.

American taxpayers spend billions of dollars every year in faraway countries helping build Refugee Camps and then helping in the physical and financial realms along with many N.G.O.’s such as the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the good old United Nations, plus many others helping out the best they can.

I have a question for you, why can’t these camps that we are having to conjure up, be conjured up on the Mexican side of the border? Folks, it isn’t just our borders that are an issue here, look at the condition of Mexico’s totally open border on their side and they seem to be doing very little in preventing their citizens to just walk away totally unknown and undocumented to their government. The Mexican government seems to be doing nothing in their responsibility of taking care of these thousands of children (and thousands of other starving homeless people) and making sure that proper protocol with neighboring countries laws are honored before you allow what has been being done! Friends, these thousands are just the tip of the iceberg of the many millions of destitute human beings/brothers and sisters who will follow more quickly if we continue the current porous policies. This current border condition needs to be a major priority of both Federal governments.

 

Why can we not work with the Mexican government (and why not the U.N. ?) to set up refugee type camps in multiple locations along Mexico’s borders with each of our southern states. We can help make sure that these camps are very humane with safe places to eat, sleep and play while they are being documented as to who they are and exactly where they are from. Then the two governments along with the U.N. have to come up with a policy that will work for everyone. If the Mexican government wants to complain that not all of these northbound people are from Mexico that there are many who are from countries to Mexico’s south, to this I would have to reiterate to the Mexican government, secure your Southern border also.

 

Folks I don’t know all of the updated information from the U.S. government (if there really is such a thing) on their policies of how many people they allow into the country each year from each country. I do believe that if our government would allow more legal immigration from our southern brothers and sisters to where these people who want to move here can feel that they have a reasonable chance of migrating here, legally! I do suggest that once the Camps are up and running that both Governments shut down their Borders and stop this migration. I know that this will cost millions to get these camps up and running but that is chicken feed compared to what we are already committed to spending on this issue. We and the  Christian/Judeo World must be humane in what we do here or we deny the essence of our own Souls. America is going to be front and center in the world’s TV screens regarding this issue, now how will we perform on this stage?

 

Folks what do you think about this idea, good, bad, really ugly? If you are blessed with a very good quality Congressman such as I have in Congressman MD Phil Roe here in east Tennessee then please make some noise very soon to your Congressman. People let’s try to get this humanitarian crisis stemmed quickly and safely before the tidal wave that lies behind the one we see now get here, yes I do believe that there are many millions waiting in the wings waiting to see what these two Governments are going to do here on the ground now. A good friend from my past used to have a saying that I liked and since we are now dealing in the realm of politics her saying fits the situation “we shall see what we shall see”. You see, people can say anything, it’s what they do that counts the most.
