The commander of U.S. Southern Command, Marine Corps General John Kelly now calls this crisis, an ‘Existential Threat’ to the United States. He also terms the U.S. border with Mexico a ‘crime-terror convergence’. So, while Obama tries to blame the GOP, the newly surveyed, ‘worst President since WWII’ ignores the fact that there is a very real threat to U.S. security, right now.
Fortunately, I think we do have a solution. As we all know, Secular leftists in the U.S. have disdain for America and have proven that their ilk will try just about anything to ‘change America’, to ‘fix’ America. Secular leftists complain that America ‘isn’t exceptional’ and Secular leftist are much less likely to want to work in America. Secular lefties point out many failing of America and apparently can’t see‘what’s so great about America’. At least the illegals recogize the freedoms won by the blood, sweat & tears of our brave military personnel, along with our Founding Fathers.
A very simple solution results. As there are known to be over 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, we can ‘make a swap’.
The United States will send 11 million Secular lefties south of the border and then we’ll deal with the 11 million illegals, who are here
usurping resources and jobs of American citizens. Start packing lefties!
We don’t have children, so we are leaving our estate to nieces and nephews. The Iowa estate tax rate would take almost 15 percent. If we had a taxable estate of $500,000, the estate tax would be approximately $75,000.
If we had one child (which we had in 1966, but the child died three months after birth) our estate would owe zero dollars. Just because we don’t have children, why should our estate be penalized? Current state law only allows for the elimination from inheritance taxes when an estate goes to kids, grandkids or stepkids. The public wonders why people move out of Iowa.

Last night, American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said in an interview that the President of the United States knowingly misled the American people (lied to us), when he continued to tell Americans Obamacare premiums wouldn’t rise. During the presidential campaign, he was advised that it probably was not true, but kept up the lie.
A majority of Americans now recognize and accept this fact.
Of course, there’s also the lies about Benghazi, IRS Scandal, etc, etc.
Yet, because the Democrats & the lamestream media continue to protect this President, it goes on and on…………
In 2007/2008, Americans eagerly lined up behind the first black presidential candidate due to the historical uniqueness. The history of the individual or his agenda promise of ‘fundamentally changing this country’ was ignored. History was made. Congratulations?
2014 in Iowa, we have a similar yet very different uniqueness. Hinton resident Dr. Sam Clovis (education not medical doctor) has entered the US Senate race. The uniqueness of Dr. Clovis is that of a well-rounded man who believes in playing by the rules. These rules are specific and laid out in the Constitution.
When the Declaration of Independence was signed, the ‘why’ was obvious. When the Constitution was signed, the ‘how’ was established. Our Constitution was rooted in the Golden Rule and Ten Commandments. (What a concept!)
For decades, both parties have ignored the ‘how’ prompting us to ask why? Sending a unique Patriot such as Sam just makes sense. No doubt he will maximize every opportunity to reestablish the ‘how’. Why? Because when he was 18 and joined the military, he took an oath of allegiance to our Constitution. I know Sam has continued to live by that oath of allegiance, as most who have served do/have. For Sam to take an oath to uphold the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic will only be an extension of his military oath.
Sam Clovis is the unique reason to vote in this Primary on June 3rd. Please join me in making history by voting for Sam Clovis, US Senate.
The sports journalists at the Iowa City Press-Citizen take great care to not show too much favoritism, or unfair reporting of the sports teams from City High and West High. The sports writers also do a pretty good job of fair and balanced coverage of other local schools, like Solon and Regina.
However, as everyone knows, the ‘news’ editors of the Iowa City Press-Corruption are just the opposite of their sports coverage, when it comes to reporting on the news pages. In those sections, there’s no attempt to be fair & balanced in their reporting. In the news sections, it’s like all of the Press-Corruption reporters are all from the one school, former Democrat students of leftist teachings. In these sections of the paper, there’s no attempt to be unbiased, fair or refrain from the temptation to ‘choose a favorite’. It’s all too clear that this newspaper picked its favorite, long ago and they’ll stoop to any level to slant stories to their favorite school of leftist thought.
Perhaps the good citizens of Iowa City should choose to be more progressive and forward thinking, by adopting and supporting a new source of news, one that is fair and balanced, like their sports pages.
It would seem that it’s long past time to leave the stodgy, status quo of left leaning propagandists for something that’s a lot more hip and cool and even radical, compared to the ‘status quo’ lefties in Johnson County, Iowa.
