(Jeff Stein) A Chinese-owned pork producer will sell at least $240,000 worth of ham products to the federal government as part of the Trump administration’s farm bailout program, the administration said Wednesday.

U.S. pork producer Smithfield, which is owned by the Chinese conglomerate WH Group, will sell 144,000 pounds of ham products to the federal government under the contract.

GOVERNMENT: If you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions

‘Impeachment is Off the Table’ Pelosi Strikes Again!

The following debate took place upon my Facebook wall…

Rayn: Told you! “Impeachment is off the table” Pelosi would continue to obstruct justice, for a third time… Criminality is a bipartisan policy. They only bicker over *which* tyranny and abuse should be implemented, next.

Peter: We all know that impeachment is not really “off the table “ Just waiting for Mueller and for the new Committee Chairpersons to take over in January. It is important to move slowly and deliberately to expose Trump to the half of the country that believes his lies if we really want to be successful

Genaire: his base is either a bunch of morons, racist or down right selfishly greedy. They won’t care what evidence is presented.

Stacie T.: Exposing him will do nothing, unfortunately. He’s been pretty blatant about it all right from the get. That half believes him because they want to. They know the truth. They don’t care. All they know is that they can be openly racist, homophobic, xenophobic and classist because of him, so they’re going to hold onto him like their nuts in a hateful game of paint ball. I mean, how dare the other half elect a black president and think they’re going to go unpunished for it, right?

Sandra C.: Pelosi definitely CANNOT BE TRUSTED!!

Rayn: Just saw this, and had a good laugh…

Rayn👀 Lookie, lookie 👀
What a “surprise”! I’m completely “shocked”!

The Tyranny of Presidential ‘Executive Orders’

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

The presidential throne that Donald Trump currently sits upon was built, piece by piece, by the joint efforts of both the Democratic and Republican parties

No Mr. President, You Can’t Change the Constitution by Executive Order:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/10/31/no-mr-president-you-cant-change-constitution-executive-order?fbclid=IwAR1SND679FalX9jhf4tebQbNn2OUtZoF1INlYnaWA6rb635fIRgx0ov1_WI

(Omar Jadwat) President Trump said this week that he is preparing an executive order to try to take away the citizenship guarantee in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which says that people born in the United States are United States citizens. On Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham announced that he would introduce legislation with the same aim.

But the president cannot repeal part of the Constitution by executive order. And Congress cannot repeal it by simply passing a new bill. Amending the Constitution would require a two-thirds vote in both House and Senate, and also ratification by three-quarters of the states. The effort to erase the citizenship guarantee will never clear those hurdles — for very good reasons.

My Commentary: Wait a minute… With a *single* executive order, even the liberal hero, FDR, was able to force 100,000 Americans into concentration camps (also disenfranchising them from their homes and businesses, in the process). As far as the State is involved, there are no depths too low to sink!

The Only Thing Mass Murdering War Criminals ‘Represent’ is Coercion and Violence

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “The Liberty Revolution,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Pipebomber arrested
Drone bombers still on the loose”

My Commentary: The only thing these mass murdering war criminals “represent” is coercion and violence.

“Most Americans are so brainwashed by the time they complete twelve years of Government Education, that they cannot even recognize mass murder by the U.S. Government as a crime.” – Jeff Knaebel

Double-Thinking About National Sovereignty: Trumpite Edition

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by Voluntaryist, Larken Rose, and originally shared it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Larken Rose: The world according to Trumpites:

a) Several thousand unarmed men, women and children, escaping a crappy situation in their country of origin, walking towards the U.S. = A HORRIBLE INVASION! WE NEED TRUMP TO CALL OUT AN ARMY TO VIOLENTLY REPEL THEM!!

b) Several thousand heavily armed U.S. troops go to a foreign country on the other side of the world and start killing people, including civilians, and blowing shit up. = Perfectly fine, spreading freedom. Murica!

My Commentary: *sigh*
