On the Clintons, securitized mortgages & 3 good candidates

To The Daily Sun,

In Arkansas, Governor Bill Clinton's scandal #1 was concerning his having (alleged) improper relations with a minor. Scandal #2 involved him (allegedly) raping a woman named Broderick. Scandal #3 involved the Clinton's (alleged) involvement in arms and drug trafficking. (I personally talked with a retired Air Force pilot at the Veteran's Administration medical facility in Manchester who claimed he was a friend of the pilot who flew the plan back and forth to South America.)

My cousin, a Baptist minister, says his wife grew up in Arkansas and spent most of her life there. She claims all the scandals did exist but were covered up, mostly by Hillary. Yes, I will be the first to say it's all hearsay, but you cannot deny scandal #4, the fact that Bill Clinton lied under oath to a congressional committee about having sex with Monica Lewinsky. He turned the oval office into the "oral" office, embarrassing his family, himself and the office of the President of the United States.

Now, we have scandal #5, Hillary Clinton's Benghazi controversy; and scandal #6, her use of a personal email account and server to conduct State Department business.

Hillary and Bill Clinton are an embarrassment to themselves and all of us! But let me be the first to give credit where credit is due. Bill Clinton was one of our best presidents. He balanced our budget and left office with a surplus. But then again comes scandal #7, that the Clintons (allegedly) stole White House silverware but returned it when confronted.

The worst thing they did was turn their backs on America when Bill caved to the Wall Street bankers who bribed our congressmen not to impeach him in return for his repealing the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. With Galss-Steagall repealed just before Clinton left office, the door was open for George Bush (another dirt bag) to work hand-in-hand with the Wall Street "gang" to deregulate the bank's, allowing those bankers to pull off the largest Ponzi scheme in the history of our country. That Ponzi scheme of 2007 put $700,000 bonuses in all of the Wall Street executives' pockets and caused over 10 million American families to lose their homes illegally!

If you choose to support the Clintons for the "oral" office, again, you're naive, ignorant, or just plain stupid! Hillary has stated publicly that she "will not" reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act.

If you form your opinions based on network TV, which in controlled by the Ted Turner and Rupert Murdoch empires, then you are kidding yourself and you're helping them spread nothing more than propaganda. I suggest you get rid of cable TV and either get DirecTV or the Dish Network, where you can see "Free Speech TV" (Channel 348 on DirecTV, or you can find it on your computer at freespeechTV.com).

If you received a new mortgage or refinanced you old mortgage between 2005 and the present and your mortgage was securitized by the Wall Street banks, your mortgage is null and void! We have truth in lending laws and full disclosure laws that are supposed to be front and center at your real estate closing. The securitization process converts your alleged mortgage by way of metamorphasing from a legal agreement to a security. Therefore, you no longer have legal protection stemming from contract law! The responsibility now falls under the scrutiny of the Securities & Exchange Commission. All these mortgages are null and void as a result of the securitization process, especially because none of this was disclosed to you at your closing!

If you want to know the truth, I suggest you read "Free Fall" by Joseph Stiglitz, "Crime Of Our Time" by Danny Schechter, "Web Of Debt" by Ellen Brown, "13 Wall Street Bankers by Johnson and Kwak and "The Big Short" by Michael Lewis (now a movie). I also suggest you contact freespeechTV.com and order the following DVD documentaries: "The Prosecution of an American President" and "Video the Vote". If you want more information you can contact me my writing to "Showdown in America", c/o 40 Mountain Drive, Gilford, NH 03249.

Thomas Jefferson said: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. . . the issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

With that being said, I suggest until you have done the research and get the truthful facts, you should keep your opinions to yourself. We have three good choices for our next president: Carly Fiorina, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. They are all telling it like it is and they don't have skeletons in their closets. The choice is yours. STOP complaining and exercise your right to vote. Support public banking and make America great again.

John Kasich is the guy who actually balanced the federal budget

To The Daily Sun,

 To everyone: read all the literature, and try to do enough independent research to see who is telling the truth and who has a chance to deliver on their promises.

This year I have been actively supporting Ohio Governor John Kasich since before he announced his candidacy. This is the man who actually balanced the federal budget back in 1997. That resulted in surpluses that allowed us to pay down about half a trillion dollars of our national debt. Then he left Washington and both Republicans and Democrats spent the surplus, the recession hit, and the debt exploded to almost $19 trillion. After about 10 years in the private sector, John was motivated by the dismal situation in Ohio to re-enter the fray and run for governor.

Under his leadership, Ohio has gone from an $8 billion shortfall to a $2 billion surplus. Jobs are up. Taxes have been cut, and the state pension system is back on a solid footing. By virtually all measures of economic progress Ohio is doing significantly better than the rest of the country. Once again Kasich got the job done.

Of course now that he's rising in the polls, the attack ads are heating up. Right to Rise, the Bush PAC, has implied that Kasich is a profligate spender and is trying to raise taxes. If you read the Cato Institute report they use as a citation you will note it confirms that Kasich has cut taxes. Let me point out again that a badly underfunded pension system is now pretty solid and that Ohio is running a surplus.

I urge anyone who has not yet seen John Kasich in person to get to one of his town halls. So far there have been at least 75 and he's working on getting to 100. He is knowledgeable, reasonable, prepared, and has a genuine (verifiable) record of accomplishing what he sets out to do. Did I mention he has a plan to balance the federal budget in eight years or less?

If you can't get to one of his town halls at least look at the real numbers and not spurious distortions and make up your mind based on relevant facts.
