Positives of a 6 Year Presidency

~ Two bitches.. One in cartoon form..

Can you believe just a little more than 5 weeks before 1/3 of all Americans take the time to vote for someone for President they've known they were supporting since summertime..

Elections are quite long, drawn out affairs..   For instance, Trump announced his candidacy on June 15, 2015 which means those who seek that office out tend to formally do so a good 16 to 18 months in advance..

They say running for President is not for the feint of heart..  It certainly is no place for commitment-phobes either
The other day we had an in-office debate about how the Presidency is set up in terms of term limits..  Right now as everyone knows a President can serve no more than two full terms  and a maximum of 10 years if those first two were as a VP who became President while in office

Used to be no limit officially though everyone prior to FDR respected two-terms because Washington did not seek a third.  And after FDR, Congress made sure there would be no 4-term President again

I proposed the argument that this nation would be better off if it followed the Constitution of the Confederacy where a President was elected to one 6 year term and then he left office.
The most appealing reasons being that Presidents usually spend their first term doing little to nothing but setting themselves up for re-election and there hasn't been a President since WWII that had as good or better a second term in office than the first..

So it means the American people have two years less time to suffer with someone incompetent or outright bad (ex: Obama) and it gives the person in office less time to erect their grandiose delusional visions of how he wants to shape the world (ex: W Bush)

It also would mean that while nothing can stop an egotist from making decisions based on 'legacy' and pleasing the wealthy individuals and corporations that will one day pay for their Libraries (all Presidents are this way), it makes a re-election campaign and all the time needed to raise money moot..
It is ironic but had Nixon served a 6 year term, not only would there never have been Watergate since the basis for that was his need to win a re-election, but his term would have ended in January 1975 anyways,  5 months after when he left in disgrace and would have kept his dignity intact.

And think of Reagan..  Had he served one 6 year term, he would have left office in January, 1987 the same month that Congress announced it was opening up hearings on Iran-Contra..  Maybe they would not have bothered if a new President was being inaugurated that month.
As for Bill Clinton, while the Monica Lewinsky affair came to light in 1998, that would have been year 6 of his Presidency and because he would have left office January, 1999 there would never have been all the Impeachment hearings (not that he ever acknowledges he lied under oath nor feels any shame for the whole situation)

And George W Bush..   Well if his term had ended in January, 2007 instead of 2009, very little of the stock market crash of '08 could be laid at his feet..  Now of course because he served the full 8 years, his ignorance of finance, naivety about housing and bad policy making were a lot to blame for Lehman going under and starting the chain reaction..
We know.. We know..  The Constitution will never be changed to 6 years for a President especially if any historical connection is made to the Confederacy

But just think of it... If that rotten, old, corrupt parasite Hillary wins in November, we'd all have two years less of her and 24 fewer months for her to destroy this nation forever..

And if Trump wins...

Well OK, we can see some positives of 8 years..

Victory for 9/11 Victims; Humiliation for their President

While the big news out of the latest 24 hour news cycle might be the train crash in New Jersey which caused a lot of injuries and some fatalities, for us the most important news story is that Congress over-rided Obama's veto on the bill allowing victims of 9/11 to sue the Saudis.

Its an important event for many reasons:

1)  Since every single person involved directly in 9/11 was Saudi Arabian, this nation finally in some way will go after the nationality directly responsible.

The Taliban might be bad and Saddam was no peach but the last 15 years it is like someone plotting revenge against the neighbor who lives to the right of their home for poisoning the family dog when the culprit was the neighbor who lives to the left.
2)  An egotistical bastard President got publicly humiliated...

Even those the bill passed both houses of Congress unanimously, this race-agitating piece of dog shit President decided to still veto it and in the process middle finger victims of 9/11, many who stupidly voted for the prick

Obama is many things but he is not stupid -- he knew there was absolutely no chance his veto would succeed and yet did it anyways..

Why?  To appease the Saudis probably and because he Could veto so he did
So now Obama is experiencing his first veto though it came 7 years and 8 months into his terrible Presidency and show just how insignificant a lame duck he has become

Hopefully voters will tune out his pleas to vote Hillary as easily as members of Congress ignored his pleas to not pass this bill.

Obama's stated the measure could erode the concept of sovereign immunity, leaving American citizens and assets abroad vulnerable to lawsuits if foreign countries pass reciprocal laws.
“The concern that I've had is -- has nothing to do with Saudi Arabia per se, or my sympathy for 9/11 families... It has to do with me not wanting a situation in which we're suddenly exposed to liabilities for all the work that we're doing all around the world.”

In other words, maybe the victims of Libya might want to sue the US for all the carnage created due to Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State assassinating Ghadafi, a man who just 2 years prior, Obama smiled and shook his hand

Or maybe it opens up the US to be sued by countless victims for all the war crimes of the Bush 43 and Obama Administrations..

It is not as if the American court system ever punished W's actions..

He got to leave office after two terms, collect an annual pension, Secret Service protection for life at taxpayer's dime even though he is very wealthy and get's to spend his free time smoozing with every rotten Democrat he can find like the Obamas
We said it before.. Said it again..  The last 28 years from a political stand point, it has just been hell for any American who truly loves this nation and does not buy into the D vs R game

The last election where you had two candidates for President who were genuine opposites in ideology and background was the election of 1998 between Bush 41 and Michael Dukakis, the last of the Real Democrats.

And since then its been Wall Street Dem v Wall Street Rep and 28 years of globalist Presidents who have put America second by their actions and left us on the short end of the economic stick especially where trade agreements are concerned.

One candidate is the continuation of Obama and the other we believe, will be a dramatic departure..

And who would have thought Obama's mantra of Change was so badly needed...

Of course after his Presidency..

Trump's Courage to Attack the Fed

~ Fed Chair Janet Yellen.. A more dangerous and powerful woman than Hillary could ever hope to be..  BTW, the National Debt this moment is $19,532 Trillion so obviously the photo is old by maybe 6 months

When we have an extra day to think back on Monday's debate and noticing how polls are still steadily climbing for Trump, maybe we were a little harsh on the Donald..

He wasn't perfect by any stretch but maybe he wasn't nearly as awful as we first feared..

A lot of it has to do with expectations..

Most expected the barbs and jabs but there were still a number of people who believed the Clinton camp lies that he was some kind of nut who should be kept 40miles away from any nuclear code

So he firmly showed he had Presidential temperment - the necessary mixture of calmness and passion
What we were most impressed by and admittedly it was something we missed in the initial watching was the absolutely refreshing and gutsy way he attacked the Federal Reserve and Fed Chair Janet Yellen directly

That simply does not ever happen in a Presidential debate when usually both candidates are bought and paid for by Wall Street and the same business interests.

John McCain has the nickname of 'Maverick' but turned out to be an old, impotent scardy-cat when facing Obama in 2008

Trump is the true Maverick
The Fed has absolutely destroyed any chance of economic growth in this nation by keeping interest rates at record lows at near 0% for at least 8 years now which has Killed savers and the ability of retirees to live off their savings

This has been done for many reasons among them it keeps down the interest on the repayment of the debts the government owes to the Fed, China, Japan and dozen or so other nations..

It also allows banks to borrow at nothing which makes it essentially free money.
People don't know this but when large corporate banks borrow from the Fed, they make a profit even if none of the money is ever invested.

This is because the Fed itself becomes the holding bank for the money they lent out and they out interest on that money just like any other bank..

In other words, let's say you borrow $10,000 from a bank at 0% interest with 5 years to pay it back and while doing so that same bank is holding your money at 1% interest..

This means over the life of the loan, you would be paying not one penny in interest as you basically give back the money in monthly increments and yet have made a profit of $500 or so on the borrowing (1% interest for each year of the loan or $100 x 5)

Now imagine how much banks are allowed to make interest when they borrow $1 billion?
Remember the Fed is a private bank that works to benefit other banks and is allowed to exist because politicians in 1913 sold their soul to vote in banker-created legislation for it to exist.

And by the way, that lent-out money by the Fed becomes public debt added to the National Debt which we all re-pay

Right after the political tensions of late 2008 and the $700 Billion TARP vote, Congress snuck in a law on New Year's Eve that the Fed would be the ones to make decisions on how much money to allocate to stop the market slide and what strategies to use

That's why since 2008, it is not Congress that makes these decisions
So Trump was absolutely right to call out the Fed for the evil which it is..

Everyone may celebrate Dow 18,000 or whatever it is but to give some perspective, from the beginning of our nation in 1793 with Washington's inauguration, the Dow did not reach 1,000 until January 18, 1966

That is 173 YEARS of trading!

The first time it hit 10,000 was March 30, 1999 so it took another 33 years to get from 1,000 to 10,000
Now on March 9, 2009 the Dow was 6,547 which was the low point of the 2008 market crash..

Today, less than 8 years later thanks to TRILLIONS spent via Quantitative Easing where the Fed bought up US Treasuries and now are buying corporate stocks, the Dow is at 18,208 as of this writing..

That is a jump of 11,661 points!  In less than 8 years!

And based on Nothing real..
We read an AP news item today which said Trump's attack on the Fed chairwoman during this week's presidential debate was so aggressive that many now think it's possible Yellen will have to resign if Trump ends up becoming president.

The AP writer actually used the word 'vicious' to describe the debate comments toward Yellen.  Guess we know which side of the political and financial fence he or she supports

Her resignation would be a good first step but of course whoever would replace Yellen would be a carbon copy of Greenspan, Bernanke and her since unlike other President-made cabinet appointments, he would not get to choose his own person..

A list of suitable candidate is Provided by the Fed for the President to choose one from and Then that person goes through the confirmation process.

This ensures the Fed is always run and operated as They wish it to be...  
Do you yet understand how rigged the US financial system is and by extension our government?

We will never pretend to say a Trump victory means a new peaceful revolution of freedom and liberty or a new utopia awaits..

But if there's going to be any change in how this nation is run domestically, internationally, financially and every other way that impacts millions of people for the better, it sure isn't going to come from a Hillary win..

Hilly is 'Gilly'

~ SNL Character 'Gilly' played by Kristen Wiig

Here's Tuesday's posting a bit early.. Monday Evening..

Just couldn't wait..

A few years ago on Saturday Night Live when it was funny and the cast did not resemble 'In Living Color', there was a re-occurring character played by Kristen Wiig named 'Gilly' who was a young girl who always got into trouble and did bad things to her classmates

The teacher would constantly go 'Gilly....  Gilly....' and every time he exaggeratedly called her name to find out what mischief and destruction she caused, her response would be an obnoxious smile mixing arrogance and lack of any guilt

After enough times of hearing her name called and being asked what she did and why, Gilly would grin even more stupidly and then say 'Sorry' and everything was treated as OK while she would do a smug victory 'dance'
And watching that horrible debate last night, that's all I could think of when looking at Hillary's fucking face and her deeply phony, arrogant, smug perpetual grin every time Trump cornered her on her unethical behavior and rottenness.

One continual grin painted on her face like an old clown.

And maybe there were some undecided dum-dum voters who were swayed by that and/or the fact that to be honest Trump just rambles too god-damn much about things that are not of consequence

Who gives a fuck what Trump's tax returns show or if he did or did not support the Iraq War in 2002!!
Trump probably pays 5x more in income tax annually than all the millions of dollars Hillary made doing nothing but giving speeches to Fortune 500 corporations and evil Goldman Sachs (twice)

What matters is our debt is at $20 Trillion and will keep climbing as we annually spend more than we take in tax revenue (it has become the new norm) and the Federal Reserve keeps spending Trillions to prop up that stock market to close to 20k based on nothing tangible or real; a gigantic ponzi-scheme investment bubble..

What matters is our enemy, ISIS beheads people; cutting throats from ear to ear like a normal person cuts into a stick of butter, they're now in 30 nations and their growth and expansion is ALL on Obama/Hillary's watch
What matters is you will never EVER have a truly equal society as long as one group of people deem themselves superior while playing the victim card when it suits them;  Blacks collectively do not give a Shit about the death of a black at the hands of another black and they exaggerate a black death at the hands of a police officer..

And Obama has tolerated this uppity behavior by these Black Lives (do not) Matter monkeys.

It was so painful and pathetic to see both candidates Constantly refer to blacks as 'Afr-Amer'.. Makes us nauseous to even type the full term of racial egotism

Trump should have pressed the rancid bitch on ALL lives matter by saying 'Don't you believe the lives of Hispanics matter?  How about Asians?  And Jewish people?  And Irish Catholics? ..  So why are you a coward that you can't disavow BLM?'

That's what he should have done..  Gone for the jugular
Now Trump did attack but everything she was prepared for with a lie and another fucking insincere 'there you go again' like smile, as if trying to take a page from another extremely old person when he ran in 1980 + 84..  Reagan

We don't know how you the reader saw the debate but putting aside who won or lost,we found it to be an extremely frustrating experience and when all was said and done, really learned nothing positive about either person..

Trump should have gone for the kill like any skillful hunter would when dealing with cunning deceptive game and instead he seemed distracted by harmless irritant gnats
And Hillary spent her time hiding from the voters well.. She learned how to present herself as 100% completely opposite her true nature; Someone friendly and kind and warm..

An elderly, devious Cheshire Cat

And when it comes to Benghazi, the 33,000 lost emails, the pay-for-play Clinton Foundation, supporting corporations in Haiti when they fought the government to prevent them from raising minimum wages to $5 a day, on and on and on...

Hilly is a 'Gilly'

When Political Enemies are Really Bestest Friends

~ Taken sometime in the early 1990s when Bill Clinton was President..  Trump is standing next to Hillary; he refers to her as a 'wonderful woman'.. ugh..

Even though we here at A&G have written quite often about politics, do not think for a moment we enjoy it or that we personally like anyone involved in it.

Yes we support Trump and have made it extremely obvious as to our bias toward his candidacy since before the New Hampshire Republican primary a long time ago

But do not confuse support of a candidate with support of a person.
Both Hillary and Trump are rotten, vile people in their own unique muck stench-like way but the difference is, at least from where we sit is a Hillary Presidency is a continuation of Obama and Trump is at least the Hope of something completely different..

And much better..

It is really all one can do because you can read endless newspapers of all political persuasions and listen carefully to every word of tonight's debate and subsequent ones

And you and we will still not really know anything.
~ Trump and Clinton.. best buddies

So many historical examples of people who run for President and they make these impassioned promises

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson running for re-election promised he would not get America involved in the senseless bloodbath known as World War I..  It was the basis of his entire campaign

Five months after election in April, 1917 we declare war..

Historians do not tell you this but our soulless bankers and creditors lent Britain and France a TON of money at the beginning of the war and had they lost, we'd never have gotten that back.
~ Possible future First Lady Melania Trump is standing to Clinton.. 

Then there's Richard Nixon who centered his whole campaign for President about quickly ending the Vietnam War and bringing everyone home based on a secret plan

Yes, every last troop was brought home..  It just happened 7 years later

Then Bush 41 promised 'Read my lips.. No new taxes' and ultimately went back on his word since really his word did not mean spit..

Every person running for office promises the moon and the best one can hope for is that we the people don't put in the wrong person and get mooned back.
But what we hate the most.. Really HATE is the chumminess between all the people who were or are in power..

Old fart Bush 41 is best friends with degenerate Bill Clinton..

His idiot son Bushie 43 was super-chummy with the Obamas during a ceremony this weekend to open a black history museum (as if we really need That)
And in spite of all the rhetoric, Donald Trump really still thinks very fondly of Hillary and Bill.

Trump even at one time donated $100k to the corrupt pay to play Clinton Foundation and hosted Clinton fundraisers back in 2000 at Trump Tower

It is all a game at our expense- present and future.

It makes any decent person genuinely sick..
I can not speak for any other but I've personally never pretended to like someone I hate nor pretended to hate someone I liked.

I have never agreed to attend the wedding of someone I thought was racist, xenophobic or such (Hillary attending Trump's wedding), and I've certainly never played golf or involved myself in any social activity with someone I thought was a garbage human being. (Trump and Bill)
But it is all a country club; a super-exclusive clique...

And every election when these rats of both political parties are done their mud slinging and fear tactics while getting millions upon millions of people so angry and scared they want to yell and fight anyone who thinks different..

And these MF'rs just sit back, share some coffee or tea and just laugh and laugh..
Because to them, it all means nothing.

Kinda makes one long for the good ol days of the 19th century when if you felt passionately about something and another felt different, you bashed them with a cane (pro-slavery Senator Preston Brooks upon anti-slavery Charles Sumner's head in 1858 on the Senate floor)
Upon learning that Brooks broke his cane rightly attacking Sumner in the defense of his honor (Sumner had said all slave owners breeded with their slaves), he was deluged with dozens of new canes sent to him by appreciative southerners to replace the old

Now all matters are settled on the god-damn golf course where everyone wears conformist collared clothing and waste their day hitting a little white ball into a cup
~ Trump and Clinton with NYC mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, a pretend 'Independent' scumbag who said he would only run for President if Bernie Sanders beat Hillary in the Democrat primaries

All we can say is this election will be over in about 6-7 weeks and since neither Trump or Hillary sincerely feel any dislike toward each other in this big charade, neither should you let it affect your personal interactions with those who think different

Don't let this ruin your relationships and friendships with those who may be voting different than you because in less than two months, these two will be sharing laughs and smiles (their daughters Ivanka and Chelsea grew up and still are best of friends)
~ Disgusting isn't it..

Meanwhile you certainly don't want to leave your personal interactions with others in tatters over This..

Just a rotten shame every election its between two people who deep down like each other, who pretty much see the world the same way and want the same people (the super wealthy) to benefit with every public policy.

So Many "Racist" Presidents in History; So Many Monuments to Destroy

I've always been a great lover of history and found it both interesting and insightful..

The one problem with it however is the people that create the history through their actions and deeds are not alive to defend themselves when future generations of biased historians and the ignorant everyday masses want to revise, re-interpret or ignore for their own agendas.

For instance if somehow magically all those of adults who lived in the US back in 1920 were alive today, they would Never tolerate the level of liberal social progressivism we've seen and they would have but down Black Lives (do not) Matter with intense violence if need be.
But the dead can not defend themselves or their past which is why the white-guilt scum of 2016 along with uppity militant blacks want to destroy all traces of anything that is deemed even slightly 'racist' to their uneducated eyes.

This means renaming all schools and streets and taking down statues and plaques of anyone that fought for the Confederacy or owned slaves at any point in their lives or felt at least the slightest anti-black sentiment no matter if it occurred in 1920 or 1790.

If these black dirtballs and their white-shame partners in crime could, the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Mt Rushmore and any other rememberence of great Americans who built this nation would be literally turned to ash and history books would only paint them in a negative light.

Think that is an exaggeration, do you?
Did you know there is a militant black movement which recently aligned itself with BLM to force by physical violence if need be, the knocking down of the famous statue of President Andrew Jackson that rests in New Orelans, site of the War of 1812 battle where he soundly defeated the British.

Does not matter a damn Jackson's accomplishments as a soldier and statesman..  He didn't see blacks as 100% equal (as if anyone other than extreme-radical New England abolitionists did back in 1820) and treated those Indian scalp-scraping, white woman raping savages meanly

Funny how these pieces of feces never go after Lincoln who they are all taught to look at as America's Jesus.. Sent down from heaven to free them:
"I  will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races -- that I am not, nor have ever been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negros, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a phyiscal difference between the white and black races which prevents them from living together on terms of social and political equality.  

And inasmuch as they can not so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race"

I absolutely Love this quote not so much for what was said but WHO said it..

Abraham Lincoln on August 27, 1858 during his second debate w. Stephen Douglas during the campaign for Illinois senator.
In the book 'Lincoln's Selected Writings' by David Reynolds, he writes about Lincoln:

"He (Lincoln) shared many of gthe prejudisces of the society in which he lived.  Lincoln used the word 'nigger' privately and, occasionally in public,  He enjoyed going to blackface minstrel shows, and his seemingly endless repertoire of stories and jokes included overtly racist humor"

Funny how historian Ken Burns left this out of his 'Civil War' documentary..  Guess it conflicted too much with the narrative of Lincoln as a great emancipator.

Andrew Johnson, Lincoln's VP who became President after his death stated in 1864:

"As for the negro I am for setting him free but at the same time I assert that this is a white man’s government…  If whites and blacks can’t get along together arrangements must be made to colonize the blacks (that is, send them to Africa).”

This was a very common sentiment at the time and to a degree some still share it today..
The nation is also adorned with many statues, plaques and honorariums of Ulysses S Grant..  The bastard is even on the $50 bill

Most people don't know or seem to care that he owned slaves at the start of the War on his farm.

Historians rather than attacking and vilifying Grant created this make believe narrative that the experience made him feel very negative toward owning others, as if he had no direct day to day input whatsoever in the purchasing and ownership of other people.

Really no different than how the media today bends over backwards to minimize or trivialize every negative thing about that rancid closet-lesbian Hillary because they're all on the same team
So let's see.. uppity blacks should have at least 6 Presidents they hate - Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Johnson and Grant..

Let's see if based solely on the criteria of not looking at the colored man as equal to whites prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, let's see if they should be hating any others..

President Woodrow Wilson who led America into World War I thought blacks inferior to whites as well..  Also praised 'Birth of a Nation' as a very accurate portrait of the Civil War and in particular Reconstruction..
Teddy Roosevelt once said in a speech in 1905:

"The problem is so to adjust the relations between two races of different ethnic type that the rights of neither be abridged nor jeopardized; that the backward race be trained so that it may enter into the possession of true freedom while the forward race is enabled to preserve unharmed the high civilization wrought out by its forefathers"

Who did he mean was the 'backward' race?

So now Teddy has to be added to the militant black list of hated Presidents huh?

Plus he like every single person back then called those people 'colored'..

Whewww.. That sure is a lot of people to hate and a lot of historical rememberances to destroy
The biggest problem with the world we live in today outside of the political corruption and economic slavery by banks, is that the politically correct white guilt pieces of garbage want to look at all of American History through the lens of 2016

And if you were a person from the past and did not look at blacks as 100% equal, and support the rights of homosexuals and transsexuals, etc..  then you are to demonized and portrayed in only negative ways.

Which of course is ridiculous but we've allowed them to hold that power; like allowing a bully to get away with things.. When you stand up and push back, the bully shows him/herself as a coward and runs away
You can never have true equality in society when one group is allowed to be superior to another and white-shame liberals have allowed this to happen.

And you can not EVER look at people from centuries gone by in terms of their views on other people based on the standards of today..

Name one President prior to say 1900 who made any mention of women's equality or the the right to vote?  Or said a single complimentary thing about Hispanics or Asians or Jewish people?''

That is Not how you judge someone from the past in terms of the simple narrative of 'good v bad'..

You judge on deeds..
Because we have a President who never deserved to sit in the Oval Office and who only encourages the blacks to galvanize and riot causes race relations to continually deteriorate and good people always get caught in the middle.

And because that Bastard Obama only has 4 months left, the BLM feel empowered to scramble to cause as much destruction and middle-finger decent people as they can because even if Hillary wins, she is not going to tolerate anyone or anything challenging her rule.
There are many blacks who are good, decent people, very intelligent, law abiding who love their country and deserve full respect..

And there are many not worth a shit..

You can not say all are good as much as you can not say all are bad.

Just gotta know thy enemy and not be afraid to fight for your vision of America to be represented because right now its been systematically hijacked.
