It's Over. No More Impeachment. Has it Ended the Battle for America?

The markets never seemed to factor in any of the impeachment bull shit. 
Constitutionally the show is over and there is no crisis. President Trump has forever been acquitted of the Articles levied by the House Democrats. Their objective was to (1) remove President Trump from office, overturning the 2016 Presidential election, (2) protect Democrats from exposure and prosecution, and (3) deny President Trump due process.
American’s watched and listened to Democrat’s rig impeachment hearings with their “fact witnesses”, being deliberately misleading, and forever exposed themselves as spreading rumor, supposition, office gossip but proving nothing. Decrying “what the President should have said” and “what he should have done” which are policy issues; the President sets policy not bureaucrats. Democrats unconstitutionally demand the President be subordinate to bureaucrats.
Democrats invited President Trump to testify though denying him the opportunity to cross examine his accusers contrary to U.S. Law; and withheld important documents from the Senate. Uniquely American, when we, as citizens, are accused of anything, we possess the right to confront our accusers. Theirs was a dishonest attempt to bring the President “to heel”.
American’s now know that Impeachment is a two step process requiring 67 Senators out of the 100 to agree with the Articles; and that the Senate Constitutionally sets its own rules. The Democrats lost.
Arm yourself with truth, as we will spend the next several years listening to “anti-American” politicians, media and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged. Turn them off; and remove Democrats from office.

The bizarre impeachment drama is over, and most Americans still cannot make sense of it. The exhausting proceedings took America on an emotional roller coaster ride providing an experience that was, to paraphrase Shakespeare, “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
Thus, most people blocked the hearings out of their lives. They hoped the issue would go away, and life could return to normal. As the trial ends, some naively assume that there might be some rest from the vitriol before the grueling new election cycle begins.
However, this sinister drama is not going away. There are many reasons to believe that this insanity is here to stay.  
A Vision of America on Trial
It is not the case to judge the merits of the impeachment trial. It has already been decided and is not going to change. However, the partisan outcome indicates that this was a political, not legal decision. The two sides coalesced around differing visions of America that cannot be reconciled.
Thus, the impeachment was not about the President himself or his alleged wrongdoings. It was not even about his shortcomings. It was about the vision of America that he represents. 
This vision is far from ideal since it includes many elements of the decadence that has brought the country to its present crisis. It will not solve the moral crisis that is now far advanced.  However, this vision of a prosperous, materialistic American way of life still resonates in vast regions of the nation. 
This vision does not resonate among liberals who want a different America. Those who are obsessed with abortion hate this first vision. Those who follow the religion of climate alarmism deplore this prosperous, carbon-friendly America. This vaguely moral vision of America does not resonate with Drag Queen Story Hour activists calling for the destruction of all moral barriers that restrain the disordered passions.
Beyond Normal Politics
This clash between these two Americas has long existed. What makes the present episode different is that it has now reached a breaking point with conservatives precariously in power. The liberals see that the victory of President Trump’s vision of America must be defeated by any means possible. Its mere existence cannot be tolerated.
This clash explains the intolerance and vitriol that is found in the policies of the liberal left since the last general election. It explains the constant obstruction and hype that have surrounded this administration. In light of this clash, so much fake news and commentary of liberal media make sense. All stops must be pulled out to play this painful cacophony.
Tragically, these tactics extend far beyond the normal disagreements that are part and parcel of politics. They now threaten the future of America as a nation. 
Making America Ungovernable  
The present debate represents something very different from anything that has come before. It is no-holds-barred politics. It is a free-for-all out there.
The twisted liberal logic of the present moment is that if this vision of America cannot be immediately defeated, then let the nation be made ungovernable. Dissect every word and telephone call. Let agencies and functionaries sabotage and leak information. Exploit every scandal. Destroy protocols and institutions. Let the government be "Antifa-ed” by the “Resistance” within. 
This has been the consistent policy of the liberal left; the impeachment is only the latest act in this macabre tragedy. Making America ungovernable should be recognized for what it is, sedition, and where national security is harmed, treason.  
An Irrational Debate
What makes this clash so alarming is its almost irrational nature. It is as if the major characters no longer think it important to convince public opinion to take up their cause. The goal is not to persuade but to impose, not to reason but to emote. 
Those engineering the impeachment, for example, didn’t seem to care if they appeared deplorable; they welcomed it.  Every step of the way seemed designed to provoke and stoke passions against them. The proceedings were illogical, secretive, arrogant . . . and exhausting. 
This new radical left makes no effort to please the other side. It shows an Antifa-like disregard for those structures of order and civil discourse that have long preserved the American union from chaos. In its desire to destroy, everything must be sacrificed.
A Dangerous Situation
Some might object that such an analysis is unduly biased against the left. However, it is hard not to come to this conclusion based on the wild drama the nation just witnessed.  
The debate has given rise to something rarely seen in American politics. A large sector of the public seethes with hatred for the opposing one. It labels the opposition as racist and intolerant. This sector is willing to break any rules to achieve its ends, goading and provoking the opposition to respond violently. Since it is denied government, it seems determined to set fire to the nation.
The key to opposing this destructive behavior is to control the narrative. Those who love and defend order and the rule of law must see the left’s psy-war clearly, and avoid it like a tar-baby. They should recognize the real clash between two visions of America.  They should sidestep the provocations, and peacefully and legally denounce the “Antifazation” of government that makes governing impossible. 
Above all, they must have the courage to think beyond a materialistic vision of America. They should return to the perennial moral values that will make America virtuous and once again governable.

The Hidden Agenda Behind the Global Warming Hysteria

Climate change activists are not just interested in reducing carbon emissions in order to "save the planet." Their underlying desire is to overturn capitalism and replace it with socialist governments worldwide. 

Our story starts with the IPCC, or the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.N. organization. "And any settlement of the Global Warming issue by the UN would entail massive transfers of wealth from the citizens of wealthy countries to the politicians and bureaucrats of the poorer countries." (1)

In 1992, at the first U.N. Earth Climate Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Program Executive Director Maurice Strong stated, very candidly: 

"We may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrialized civilization to collapse. Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?" (2)

Former U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth (D-CO), then representing the Clinton Administration as U.S. undersecretary of state for global issues, join…

IRA Taxes: Rules to Know and Understand

Article from schwab.com


Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) can be a great way to save for retirement because of the tax benefits they can provide. If you’re eligible, you can choose a traditional IRA for an up-front tax deduction and defer paying taxes until you take withdrawals in the future. Or, if eligible, you might opt for a Roth IRA and contribute after-tax money in exchange for tax-free distributions down the road.


So, what's the catch? There are a few. If you run afoul of some of the IRS rules surrounding these accounts, the penalties can be quite stiff—all the way up to a disqualification and taxation of your entire account.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and with few exceptions, the IRS isn’t very forgiving of mistakes. Knowing the rules can help you navigate the many potential IRA tax traps you might encounter on your way to retirement.

Keep in mind that when we discuss taxes and penalties, we’re referring to those at the federal level. In most states, you will also…

Critical Financial Steps When Buying a Home

In my lifetime, I have bought six houses, and sold five. I currently live in the sixth, which was new construction, which was an adventure unlike purchasing an existing home, But the principles of buying a home are the same, whether you are purchasing a new home, or an existing home.

1. Understand why you want to buy a house
Purchasing a home is a major decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important to define your personal and financial goals before proceeding. Think about factors such as whether you’re craving more stability, whether it makes sense financially and whether you’re prepared for the responsibility of maintaining a home.

You should explore some resources on Renting vs. Buying before you make the decision. I posted a article with a couple of good videos on this subject, and bankrate.com as an informative article here
2. Dig Into Your Credit Reports and Credit Scores Your credit score and history are the first things all lenders will look at to decide whether or …
