All politicians are stooges. All of them.

"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, ... The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply." Nathan Rothschild

“Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws. … Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.” — Mackenzie King, Canadian Prime Minister 1935-1948.

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." - Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ― Woodrow Wilson

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays – Propaganda

Thank you for writing this. It illustrates your desire to learn and communicate the truth at all times. Many of us were fooled too, myself included. As you suggest, being adaptable during information warfare is a trait of wisdom. Your work is invaluable, so thank you for all you do.

This is the first of this series I've read, so well done in correcting the misstep. It shows that you care about the subscribers, who place trust and importance in your writings and opinions.

The bigger value is that it illustrates even the best informed of us, is so thirsty for a true, honest and conservative "anything" (politician, reporter, pundit, etc.), we will grab at any promising looking straw.

The global left, uniparty, regime, media corps and more know this. Which explains the rise of the RINOs, the lukewarm conservatives on Fox, and now these political posers, who've learned (as have their backers), that all you need do is regurgitate conservative talking points, chapter and verse and you are in. This is the playbook for inserting controlled opposition, into our midst. Since they have unmasked the ultra leftist, it makes these posers look like constitutionalists, by comparison.

Add to that leading conservatives saying...we need to put a rep in office, even if they aren't the best...they are better than a dem. So now we are walking the "vote for Joe, because he is not Trump" path???

We must question everyone and everything, even those who have been allies in the past.

It's because we stopped questioning and either gave them a pass or were too busy watching obama-netflix (read being artfully distracted by the left), that we are in this mess now...globally.

Thanks for the very transparent reminder, that we ALL, need to wake the hell up and take responsibility, for where our collective and respective futures are headed.

The Numbers Are In: Trump’s Tax Cuts Paid Off.

Many leaders, including John F. Kennedy who called for 30 percent tax cuts, and Ronald Reagan, believed in the power of lower tax rates. Note what happened when PresidentTrump took a lesson from history and slashed taxes during his administration! According to a June, 2022 study, this propelled higher income growth and therefore higher income and payroll taxes, and government now expects to bring in more tax revenue in the decade following the 2017 Trump tax uts than it had projected prior to the passage of tax reform. However, many of the Trump tax cut provisions are now set to expire over the next few years. You can read the study below:

The corporate tax reform propelled higher income growth and therefore higher income taxes and payroll taxes. Unfortunately, many of the provisions of the Trump tax cuts are set to expire over the next few years

Hello Stella, Thank you for the prompt reply. Nothing that was said by me was directed to you personally. Please accept my apology if I came across that way. It is a gift to me that we met, and I hope that we will continue to keep in touch with one another. You are a shining light in a dark world. We are not alone. We have each other,and there are many of us.

We expect from you, honesty and wisdom gained through experience, not impeccability. No complaints here.

Shit happens. Especially when the world is full of it. When one considers your record, you're still aces. Maybe what Canada can use is a Project Veritas-type organization. You need embeds in all the right places. I still have hope that the good people of the Great White North will vanquish their enemies. Long live this 2nd Smartest Guy in the World. Love from the free state of Florida. I can't wait till the day comes when I get regular work (I'm being hurt by woke-a-dopes in my industry, but that will end) and can become, as I want to, a subscriber and $ contributor.

One of my Subscribers signed up to be a paid subscriber to your Substack by mistake. She thought she was becoming a paid subscriber to my substack (I do not charge for my Substack) It appears she was reading one of your articles that I shared on my substack and thought she was donating to me. Is there anyway you can reverse the charges. I recommended that she call her credit card company but thought you might be able to help. I can send her name and email address privately. My email address is: karen.bracken@reagan.com
