We often hear or refer to Congressional gridlock; now an accepted cliché helplessly alluding to apparent inability of the House of Representatives or U.S. Senate to effectively legislate on behalf the American people or usefully serve their Main Street constituency in any positive or fiduciarily responsible manner.  This malfeasant, sometimes treasonous behavior is euphemistically attributed to rancorous Democrat/Republican adversity, normalized by compromised media pundits to the point, no solution appears possible.  Non-stop identity politicking, finger pointing and exhaustive pandering wear down even the most vigilant of voters, boosting financial survival and cultural chaos back into top, family priority positions, with political candor and leadership integrity falling off the radar until two weeks before election day.

BUT is this really the case?  I don’t buy it.

Elected members and appointed staff of Washington D.C.‘s bicameral Congress are apparently so deeply bought and paid for by special interests they no longer qualify as even mid-level managers.  They’ve willingly reduced themselves to paid lackeys, water boys and girls, 100% beholden to the money and press coverage provided by deep state order-followers who handle their pathetic careers in corrupt government; of money, by money, for the power to keep that money harvesting machine oiled and rolling along.

For those few instances when the carrot doesn’t work and one of our well-dressed Congressional lackey’s dares an independent thought or just wasn’t paying attention– whamo – out comes the control-file stick with negative press, scandals, financial difficulties, credit problems… and if necessary, accidents for pets, friends, associates or family members.  Problem solved; Main Street shafted; global syndicate happy.

Once we begin to get our Main Street arms around the enormity of D.C. corruption, enabled via complete acquiescence and complicity of MSM, we can begin to see how deep this infection runs.  It’s not a D and R skin abrasion; it’s full on, metastasizing, globalist cancer.

So, is Congress gridlocked?  Sure it is, though not because of liberals or conservatives, Democrats or Republicans.  That silly paradigm is controlled opposition hogwash designed to occupy distracted Main Street minds from seeing the cause of the infection. The systemic core infection from our Main Street viewpoint, is fiat currency, i.e. debt currency enabling ownership and operation of all controlled political conflict by the same global syndicate, via control of the money supply.  Fiat money makes big corrupt government possible by empowering government growth while eliminating the need for revolution inducing direct taxation.  Sovereign debt replaces direct taxation with future obligations and the invisible inflation tax, lulling tax paying voters into complacency, thereby disabling transparency, accountability and any attempt by competent bureaucrats to manage the bloated, parasitical beast, rampaging loose in D.C.

A two-Party, fake news dialectic effectively locked into one single globalist agenda via Fascist control of government by transnational monopoly interests, some might say mercantile interests, singularly aligned with the global syndicate totalitarian agenda; enforced by shadow government operatives; co-dependently enabled by the false promises to Main Street of social justice, security and nanny state freebies… all of which can be earned by giving up the 2nd Amendment, which by proxy gives up the 1st amendment along with any vestigial allusion of self-governance.

The D.C. legislative cancer problem we deal with today, is elected, so-called representatives traditionally selling themselves to the most-feared bidder for so many decades; both Houses of Congress are run not by elected Congressional lackeys, but by outside interests we the people don’t even know.  Making matters worse, some of those interests are malevolent regarding humanity.  In D.C. today, representatives are so completely owned and operated by outside third parties, even if we could find a Congressperson who wished to coordinate a coalition of the willing to do something on behalf their constituencies – they likely couldn’t do it.

Congressional coalitions today, are built by outside third-party interests, not by Congressional persons themselves.  Congresspersons today are not decider guys and gals; they’re just pathetic puppets voting on bills they haven’t read, handed to them by lobbyists, all the while dancing on control-file strings.  We watch on C-SPAN as Congressional puppets attend hearings and committee meetings where they mindlessly read their controlled opposition sound bites and pompously parrot prepared notes, sometimes clearly surprised as they publicly and embarrassingly read what they’ve just been handed by staff.

The latest hysterical example occurred April 10th, 2019 when House Financial Services Committee Chairperson, Maxine Waters ignorantly attacked a panel of bankers regarding the student loan default crisis (and no, I’m, not defending bankers).  This vacuous California Congresswoman was either mindlessly parroting questions written for her or worse, doesn’t know the corrupt  Obama Administration took over the student loan program in 2010.  This is the state of our very expensive 116th United States Congress and it doesn’t look much like self-governance.

So, our Main Street question for today is; how do we fix this corrupt mess?  The corrupted House and Senate have neutered themselves into legislative irrelevance for any issue beyond harvesting constituent wealth and money laundering.  What can Main Street do to aid the Trump Administration in releasing the treasonous shadow government’s, control-file choke-hold on Congressional Representatives?  Members of our bi-cameral Congress appear to have complicitly created a corrupt circumstance in which they are no longer capable of acting on behalf their constituency.  They have effectively castrated themselves into Constitutional political impotency.  We the people of Main Street will now have to bail them out and save our Republic — but how do we do that?  Just askin’?

In the interest of brevity, I’m not going to reproduce the entirety of our U.S. Constitution’s Article I, Section 3, regarding the U.S. Senate; other than to comment that our Founder’s original language called for U.S. Senators to be APPOINTED by their respective State legislatures; not elected via the same propaganda prone, media manipulated, back room deal prone, mud wrestling process as the people’s House Members.

Clearly, the U.S. Senate was originally intended to provide each State with its own meaningful legislative voice in Federal governance,  guaranteeing a check and balance by one legislative branch against over-reach by the Executive or Judicial branches.  The 17th Amendment eliminated this important check and balance and in doing so, destroyed all meaningful ability at the Federal level for any State to defend its Rights legislatively on a level playing field.  The 17th Amendment has done more structural damage to our once Constitutional Republic than any other short sighted piece of legislation in history.

If Americans wish their children and future generations to be free; the 17th Amendment must be repealed.  The single most significant reason why Washington D.C. no longer works for or represents we the people is the 17th Amendment and the check and balance it dispensed with.  Our U.S. Senators should and must represent their States – and failure to do so satisfactorily ought result in immediate removal from office by their State Legislature and replacement with a new appointee who will represent that State’s interests.

WITHOUT A STATE’S RIGHTS CHECK AND BALANCE, WE THE PEOPLE CANNOT POSSIBLY HAVE AN HONEST REPUBLIC.  A republic is an oligarchy itself, and must be reigned in by its citizens or it will not operate in the citizen’s best interests.  History proves this repeatedly.

I’ve made my intended point above, so no need to read further unless you’d like a bit more information.  I’ll explain below “why” I believe the 17th Amendment was passed.

*************
AMENDMENT XVII:
  Ratified April 8, 1913
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years;  and each Senator shall have one vote.  The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.

This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.
*************

To understand why the 17th Amendment, stated in full above was passed, we must as a minimum consider two other 1913 legislative disasters, together constituting a  financial coup d’etat on the citizens of the United States.  The first is the 16th Amendment creating the Federal Income Tax (2nd Plank of the Communist Manifesto).  Note that our Founder’s, most of them anyway, believed a tax on a person’s labor to be obscene.

*************
AMENDMENT XVI:
Ratified February 3, 1913.
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
*************

There are more than 20,000 pages of legal opinion and argument as to whether the 16th Amendment was properly ratified by 3/4 of the 48 States at the time.  I don’t personally believe it was properly ratified; that Secretary of State (at the time) Philander Knox simply declared it ratified and objection was insufficient to stop it… but I’m not a lawyer and I’m not interested in addressing that issue here, just sayin’.

The second minimum item we must consider is the Federal Reserve Banking System; the privately owned U.S. Central Bank (5th Plank of the Communist Manifesto) spawned by passage of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, 1913.

The world’s sly Elite Banksters quietly obtained the unconstitutional (illegal) legal right to access U.S. taxpayer wallets and wealth via passage of the 16th Amendment eleven months prior to controversial Federal Reserve Act passage.  The Federal Reserve Act, on the heels of failed Aldrich legislation was passed in the dark of night during the Christmas Holiday of 1913.  The Banksters just barely got their hands on the U.S. money supply and in turn its government and tax payer’s wallets AND THEY KNEW VOTERS WOULD EVENTUALLY CATCH ON TO THE SCAM.

That’s why the Banksters coerced their elected pawns to pass the income tax (probably illegally) in February;  followed by passage of the 17th Amendment in April, absolutely castrating State’s ability to stop them when it finally dawned on citizens the extent to which they had been duped.  With the 17th Amendment in place, the world’s dynastic families gained control of the U.S. government; then via taxation and regulation, also gained control over the American people, leaving the neutered States with nearly zero power to defend themselves short of a second revolution.

Because of the 17th Amendment, the individual States have zero meaningful input to Federal government and NO check and balance on Federal over-reach, corruption or insanity… and today, that’s exactly what we have in D.C. – INSANITY…. AND NO WAY TO FIX IT.

Now what do we do????
