As we rip into the newly released Trump Hit pieces fabricated by the left, Let’s look into some of the claims that the DNC has made against Trump regarding his domestic policy.

Agriculture and Campaign Finance:

Well, for the first statement, Subsidies do interfere with the market, yes, But it can promote a very useful resource in the market and can be used as a good alternative source to oil and other energy sources.

In fact, ethanol is one of these useful and better sources of energy which can benefit the economy and the environment to the delight of all of the environmentalists.

Here are some facts about Ethanol from the Department of Energy:

As for Cruz, Well… Take a look at his donations:

Research these companies and count how many of them are actually involved in the oil industry.

For Campaign Finance,  Clinton has been able to keep some of her overseas donors in the dark and has Received millions in contributions, which is against the campaign laws.

Even though Trump may be wrong about removing donation caps, It should be important to force a disclosure of ALL donors, in order to see if the Campaigns are not breaking any rules.

Now, Body Cameras are possibly a great investment to our police, and to the justice system.

Now, What are the perks of Body Cameras?

A Report from the University of Southern Florida states:

Now, the Death penalty, one of the most controversial punishments in the court of law.

Now, the 8th amendment states:

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Here are some key court cases relating to the Death Penalty and its rulings:

Under certain circumstances, the Death penalty is allowed, but does not apply to:

  • Mental Retardation
  • Minors
  • Unintentional killings
  • Mandatory D.S.

And in Gregg vs Georgia, the Death penalty is constitutional.

For Marijuana, Colorado has seen its downside of marijuana in 2014 shortly after its legalization.

A NYT article reports:

Law enforcement officers in Colorado and neighboring states, emergency room doctors and legalization opponents increasingly are highlighting a series of recent problems as cautionary lessons for other states flirting with loosening marijuana laws.

There is the Denver man who, hours after buying a package of marijuana-infused Karma Kandy from one of Colorado’s new recreational marijuana shops, began raving about the end of the world and then pulled a handgun from the family safe and killed his wife, the authorities say. Some hospital officials say they are treating growing numbers of children and adults sickened by potent doses of edible marijuana. Sheriffs in neighboring states complain about stoned drivers streaming out of Colorado and through their towns….

….Since then, marijuana-impaired drivers have made up about 12.5 percent of all citations for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

It is possible that Marijuana could be deadly or cause serious harm to a person if mishandled or used improperly.

Economy:

E1.PNGE2.PNGE3.PNGE4.PNGE5.PNGE6.PNG

First, Trump is right about who caused the Recession of 2008, or Great Recession.

A combination of the Sub-Prime mortgage crisis, the Credit Crunch, as well as falling Work production and wages led to the Fall of multiple banks and the collapse of the stock market.

Because of the consumer’s desire to purchase goods using other peoples money and not paying it back, the bubble was created. And when it burst, the entire housing market, as well as the economy went along with it.

Next, Dodd-Frank.

What is Dodd-Frank?

According to it’s purpose, the Bill is:

A bill to promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system, to end “too big to fail”, to protect the American taxpayer by ending bailouts, to protect consumers from abusive financial services practices, and for other purposes.

In the bill,

The act’s numerous provisions, spelled out over thousands of pages, are scheduled to be implemented over a period of several years and are intended to decrease various risks in the U.S. financial system. The act established a number of new government agencies tasked with overseeing various components of the act.

The Financial Stability Oversight Council and Orderly Liquidation Authority monitors the financial stability of major firms whose failure could have a major negative impact on the economy (companies deemed “too big to fail”). It also provides for orderly liquidations or restructurings if these firms become too weak and prevents tax dollars from being used to prop up such firms. The council has the authority to break up banks that are considered to be so large as to pose a systemic risk; it can also force them to increase their reserve requirements. Similarly, the new Federal Insurance Office is supposed to identify and monitor insurance companies considered “too big to fail.”

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is supposed to prevent predatory mortgage lending and make it easier for consumers to understand the terms of a mortgage before finalizing the paperwork. It prevents mortgage brokers from earning higher commissions for closing loans with higher fees and/or higher interest rates, and says that mortgage originators cannot steer potential borrowers to the loan that will result in the highest payment for the originator.

Critics of Dodd-Frank state that the Bill will hamper economic growth by contributing to lower wage growth and High unemployment.
The Volcker rule was also defined from investopedia as:

A federal regulation that prohibits banks from conducting certain investment activities with their own accounts, and limits their ownership of and relationship with hedge funds and private equity funds, also called covered funds. The Volcker Rule’s purpose is to prevent banks from making certain types of speculative investments that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis.

Small business growth is at it’s slowest in years since the great depression, and the too big to fail banks continue to grow, despite the new regulations.
And, if you factor in all of those not in the labor force, those working for economic reasons, and those who are generally unemployed, then subtract the number of students in k-12 from the total population, the total unemployment rate would be around 35-40%
Also, by adding tariffs, the Chinese would no longer want to manufacture US products due to the high costs, along with china’s economic problems and their bubble.
Now, the Debt Ceiling
Take a look at this chart:
Notice how many times the debt ceiling has been raised under Obama. It’s more than 15 times! The Debt ceiling allows the set amount of debt to be amounted before a nation can stop borrowing.
This has now reached artificial highs! By raising the ceiling, the amount of borrowing can increase, it can even be extended indefinitely.
By refusing to extend the ceiling, the Republicans can blackmail the democrats into getting what they want by threatening default or something similar to that nature.
This is simply a game of politics, not listening to the voice of the people.

Education

Educ.PNGEduc1.PNGEduc2.PNG

Being a High school student, Common Core sucks, the Department of Education is a fraud, and the teachers don’t care about their jobs.

The department of education has been mandated since 1979, in which the depratment of education has:

Absorbed a good chunk of the budget.

Failed to achieve and has overspent per pupil.

Establish common core, which has wrecked the education system.

By ending the Department of Education, the States will have more control over their education systems, whether reforming the academics, the times of class, or an overall reform, The exclusion of the DoE would lead to the following:

  • School choice on most areas, whether academics or other areas.
  • Safety precautions
  • Discipline choices
  • Grants and Loans to higher ed

and many other areas that need reform in the education system.

There is a LOT more about these documents that need to be covered, stay tuned!
