Charley Reese's Final column!
A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL.
Be sure to Read the Poem at the end..
Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel... He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!
545 vs. 300,000,000 People
-By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President's proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees... We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid...
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the heck happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!
GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!
On August 13, 2021, Homeland Security under guidance of the Biden Harris administration issued this bulletin.
Clearly they are letting us know what they are planning (which is an indication that they are panicking):
1. Stricter lockdown measures that will create stress so that people take to the streets in peaceful protest. (They will deploy the Anitifa & BLM flunkies to make these protest violent so they can call in the National guard).
2. The BiRis Administration already knows the outcome of the Maricopa county audit report will show the election was rigged even though they already bragged about it in the Times Magazine. (They hope we will once again take to the streets and demand justice be done and they will deploy their flunkies to create violence so they can call in the National Guard).
3. The BiRis Administration knows America is not happy with them sending additional troops back to Afghanistan under the guise of making sure the rest of our troops come home. They are hoping that we forgot that Biden removed the financial sanctions placed on them by the prior administration which is the reason why the Taliban has resurrected it's terror of of the middle east and purposely targeting Afghanistan.
And this is not a coincidence that it falls in place with 9/11 being right around the corner. It's quite convenient, because this administration needs a war to take place either foreign or domestic in order to cover up their crimes against humanity and to help usher in the Great Reset!
So what do we do to stand our ground yet not respond with the violence they want?
1. Make sure we have enough water and food for at least 2 weeks
2. Continue standing your ground concerning your freedoms of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, medical freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to bear arms.
3. If restaurants and business continue to push j@b passports, order take out or curbside, let them come to you.
4. If your job is pushing you to wear masks or get the experimental j@b, take a medical LOA & apply for short-term disability, because it "obviously" isn't safe to work.
5. File a class action lawsuit. If your co-worker won't join you, another jobs worker will because these corporations are all pushing the same thing. They have no intention of acknowledging the ones who have natural immunities from contracting covid and survived.
If you have any more suggestions, share below. Let's be on alert and just allow them to implode on themselves. We don't need to protest the way they want us too. Silent protest are just as effective.
-- We can take our money out of their banks
-- We can not show up to work for the corporations, if we don't work they don't make money
-- We can utiltize the curbside options for everything just exercise patience.
-- We can flood our elected officials with emails and phone calls reminding them they work for we the people
Check out these websites to stay informed:
Sign the Declaration of Restoration
Sign petition to stop j@b passports
Let the Games Begin
Except this isn't a game. This is real life! Our Constitution has been hanging in the balance since the 2020 election,
Many of us remember the oddity of the networks stopping the election count that evening, networks officially calling states before it was even official and waking up to see that even though the President at the time gained 10 million more votes which brought him to 75 million, we woke up to Biden being declared the winner with more votes than Barack Obama received when he was elected.
Mike Lindell has put forth a very rewarding challenge for anyone that can refute the evidence he is presenting at his 3-day Cyber Symposium.
$5 million dollars to anyone who can refute election fraud.
If we had a fair and safe election why is there so much issue with transparency? Why is the media shutting down anyone who has an opinion about the election?
Why are officials not willing to be transparent?
It's the same issue with the January 6 event. They have over 40,000 hours of video tape yet the January 6th committee and the speaker of the house refuse to release the footage for us to see for ourselves.
What's done in the dark will always come to light.
Let's stay tuned for this upcoming event!
From his website:
“Hi, I’m Mike Lindell and I'm coming to you with the most important commercial that I've ever done. All of you know what MyPillow and myself have gone through in the last five months in my efforts to bring the truth forward.
“Well it's all come down to this. I'm having a cybersymposium on Aug. 10, 11 and 12. This historical event will be live-streamed 72 hours straight on my new platform, FrankSpeech.com.''
The disinformation warfare is at an all-time high and is predicted to get much worse. This war is unlike any other we’ve ever experienced and though the theme continues to be the same—“who or what will be the dominant power of the world” – the tactics are becoming more ruthless and psychological NOW that we are gaining a better knowledge of it.
The small ruling class of “elites” has done it’s best to infiltrate all institutions that make up our world, creating a false network of diversity so that the large majority believes we have a choice. Our finances are controlled by a worldwide banking cartel tied to a centralized banking system which includes the Federal Reserve. About 80% of the food industry is controlled by four major brands that are funded by the bank cartel.
And now, thanks to the “pandemic”, we are starting to see more clearly the medical cartel that wants to use medical emergency powers to overrule free will which is our sovereign right to choose.
We got here through decades of misinformation and a global agenda that made a huge impact on our Constitution when Congress allowed a private central bank to take over the U.S. Treasury in 1913. Little by little, this group took over the government agencies that were set up to protect people’s interest by lobbying to set up policies that kept we the people oblivious to their ultimate plan – world domination by controlling the finances, education, entertainment and health of every nation.
