Intro:

 

Hey, how are you doing? Thank you for joining me here at Liberty On Point. This is episode number 68 and I am you host Tony Ray. Man, there has been a lot going on in the news, which has made it hard for me to keep up with the things that I want to keep an eye on, but with that being said, is the first segment we are going to talk about a few things going on in the news and in Congress. Then, in the second segment I want to talk about the executive orders that President Trump has signed since taking office, in particular the one that deals with immigration. We have a lot of ground to cover, so let's go ahead and get on with the show.

Segment 1:

The first thing that I would like to talk about is, that I have to take my hat off to both President Trump and Vice-President Pence, and the reason is because of these two stories. The first is:

It is nice to see a President and a V. Pres. that actually respect and honor the sacrifices that the men and women of the military have made. It has been far too long since we have seen a President that actually acts like the Commander-In-Chief. President Trump and V. Pres. Pence are actually showing the American public how to be leaders.

 

Did you hear about this FedEx Driver in Iowa that stopped some protesters from burning the American flag? There a couple of videos, of this incident, that have made it to the internet and that have gone viral. If you go to the show notes, libertyonpoint.com/068, there is a link to a Fox news story with a couple of clips of these videos.

President Donald J. Trump Statement Regarding Recent Executive Order Concerning Extreme Vetting " America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave. We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror. To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days. I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian m Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering."

In this week's episode I talk about former President Obama commuting Chelsea Manning's sentence. I also discuss President Trump's inaugural address, as well as a few other things, like H.R. 193 and H.R. 596 introduced to Congress.

Mr. Trump wasn't my first choice for President, but I am happy to say that he was sworn in as the 45th President on Friday, January 20th. I am overjoyed to say President Trump, instead of President Clinton. I do not believe that our country could handle another four years as bad as the last eight that we have survived. I am glad to see a President in the White House that actually likes the United States and is proud to be an American. For far too long, we have suffered a leader that was not proud to say that and that did not have America's best interest at heart. I cannot read Mr. Obama's mind, but his actions seem to say that he wanted to destroy all the things that make America great, and rebuild it into his concept of America.

The following are some of the excerpts of President Trump's inaugural address that I found to be encouraging.

Excerpts from Trumps Inaugural Address (with commentary).

Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people. For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

Tony:  (Re-read highlights) This is the way that the Founding Father's intended it to be, that is why they wrote in the Constitution, "a government of the People, by the People, and for the People". The ideals of a government of the people are throughout the Constitution. The government is supposed to be taking its direction from the People, not making laws and then informing the people of those laws. For far too long, many people have wanted other people to make decisions for them. That is how we have gotten the government that we have today. For the ideal of a government of the people to work, the People must be engaged with their representatives. We cannot just elect people to office and expect that they will do the right things, without direction. It is great that President Trump has these ideals, however, he also has to have the cooperation of Congress and the Senate.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public. But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

Tony: (Re-read highlight 1) I agree. Most Americans want good schools for their children, safe neighborhoods, and good jobs, but is this an issue for government? The problem with these issues is that government is too involved. At this point in time, all of these issues are centrally controlled through the federal government. If President Trump is talking about getting government out of these issues, then we will be doing good, however, if he is talking about more government interference, then it is only going to be the same old issues.

(Re-read highlight 2) Again, I agree with this statement. The cost of education keeps going up, but the quality of that education keeps decreasing. We have high school students graduating that cannot read or do simple math. Some college students aren't much better off. We have people that are spending tens of thousands of dollars on a college education, and then can't get a decent paying job when they graduate. Again, this issue was created by government. Some of the problems include mandated curriculum and government backed loans. Go back and look at the math and the English lessons children were doing in the 30s, 40s and 50s. They were doing lessons in grade school, that our college students are doing. This is the result of a system that is all inclusive, this is the system that created participation trophies, and is trying to eliminate winners and losers. This is not the reality of real life. That is why we are seeing the drama over the election. I have talked before, about the bloated budgets of school systems, but always need more money.

 

For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We've defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own. And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We've made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon. One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

Tony: (Re-read highlight). I have been saying this for quite a while now. We spend trillions of dollars every year helping other countries, which wouldn't be that big of a problem if we were flush with cash. However, the country is going broke and our spending deficit (the amount of money that the government has borrowed compared to the amount of money taken in through taxes) is in the tens of trillions of dollars. How about instead of spending a couple of million dollars helping somebody rebuild a mosque (yes, that has actually happened, and no we weren't the ones who damaged it) we spend that money on our own infrastructure or to help pay off the debt that we owe.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.

Tony: (Re-read highlight) I couldn't agree more. I want America's interest to be first. I am tired of Presidents and politicians that keep telling us that we have to sacrifice so that some other country can catch up or do better. I they were doing things correctly they would have already caught up. Do we improve competition by taking it easy on our components? It's not competition if we do that. This goes back into the statement about our education system, in real life you don't get a participation trophy. Those that are better equipped or that use their resources more wisely are the victors.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.

(Re-read highlight) This goes back to the previous statement and perfectly demonstrates the America first attitude. It is a nations right to put their interests first. Just like it is and individuals right to put their interests first. That does not mean that we should lie, cheat, or steal to get what we want, but it is our right to put our interests first.

The second part of this statement says that, "we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example". I think that this is something, as Americans, that we have forgotten. We cannot force Democracy on anyone. People have to want to be free, and there are some parts of the world where they are OK with being ruled over

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

Tony: Let's break this statement down. First the definition of allegiance is - from Merriam-Webster dictionary - devotion or loyalty to a person, group, or cause. Second, the definition of patriotism is - also from Merriam-Webster dictionary - a person who loves and strongly supports or fights for his or her country. For too long we have watched the loyalty to our country diminish. There are many people who are willing to criticize everything that the U.S. does and try to tear it down. Loyalty does not that we mindlessly follow everything that we are told to do. Being a patriot and being loyal to the U.S. doesn't mean that we don't vigorously debate what is the right course for the nation, but when we all have what is best for the country and its citizens in mind, then we all win. It doesn't seem as if many of our political leaders are loyal to the U.S.

 

 We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

Tony: I really can't add anything to this. It is stated quite clearly. Isn't that a lot of the problem here in America, we are chastised if we speak our minds openly. People do not debate honestly, they falsify facts, they mislead people, and they flat out lie just to promote their agenda. No thought is given to whether they may be wrong. The end justifies the means. If you cannot win the argument with vigorous, honest debate, then you are wrong.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it. The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Tony: (Re-read highlight) This is why President Trump was voted into office. The People of the U.S. are tired of these types of politicians. In the next segment of the show, I will talk about how this election has seemed to have lighten a fire underneath a few politicians, and others it seems to have emboldened. Still others, seem to be continuing on as if nothing has changed. I hope that President Trump can accomplish this task, but I think that he may get some push back by entrenched politicians.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

Tony: (Re-read highlight) This statement probably has progressives in a bipolar debate with themselves. "He said harness the energies. He means more drilling, more coal, or possible nuclear, but then he said technologies of tomorrow. That means solar and wind power". They are probably all in a tither about this statement. I believe that what President Trump is saying here is that we will use whatever energy means necessary to push our country forward, and that we are not going to hamstring ourselves by limiting what energy sources that we use.

From <https://www.whitehousehistory.org/the-presidents-and-the-national-parks

 

With a broad use of the Antiquities Act, President Carter took action on December 1, 1978, to preserve seventeen vast and endangered areas of Alaska by declaring them national monuments. In 1980, he signed the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, which protected more than 100 million acres of federal lands in Alaska, creating ten new national parks and enlarging three others.

 

Widening the focus of the Park System, in 1988 President Ronald Reagan created a national park in American Samoa.

 

President Bill Clinton used the 1906 Antiquities Act to create nineteen national monuments, including the long-overlooked Lincoln Summer White House at the Soldiers’ Home, Washington, D.C.

 On October 31, 1994, Joshua Tree National Park was established by President Clinton as part of the California Desert Protection Act, which created the largest protected wilderness area in the Lower Forty-Eight, adding 234,000 acres to the existing boundaries and elevating it to national park status.

 

In 2006, President Bush proclaimed the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Marine National Monument, creating the largest marine reserve to date. 

As he was leaving office, President Bush established the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument in the South Pacific, attesting to the durability of the Antiquities Act of 1906.

I am sure that, by now you have heard of the protests going on near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation over the Dakota Access Pipeline that is scheduled to go under the Missouri River near the reservation. For months, North Dakota's Standing Rock Sioux tribe, and other people, have been protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline's planned crossing under the Missouri River. The Standing Rock Reservation's water is supplied by the Missouri River. The reported reasons for these protests are the worries over possible contamination of the reservations primary water source, but is this the complete truth? Are we getting all of the facts concerning these protests? That is what today's show is about.

 

To start with, let me give you a little back story. The Dakota Access Pipeline (also known as the Bakken pipeline) is a pipeline being built by Dakota Access Services. The pipeline is to go from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to a refining hub in Illinois. The pipeline runs 1,172 miles underground across four state, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois. The project is estimated to cost $3.7 billion and is projected to carry 500,000 barrels of light sweet crude oil a day. The pipeline was announced to the public in July 2014, informational hearings for landowners took place between August 2014 and January 2015. Dakota Access submitted its plan to the Iowa Utilities Board on October 29, 2014, and applied for a permit in January 2015. The project was projected to be completed by Dec. 2016 and begin production by Jan. 2017.

Sweet crude oil is a high quality, low sulfur crude oil that is commonly used for processing into gasoline. Light sweet crude oil is the most sought after version of crude oil as it contains a large fraction that is directly processed into gasoline, kerosene and high quality diesel.

Reading directly from dapl pipeline facts.com http://www.daplpipelinefacts.com/

 

Claims made by the protesters

 

Let me read you a snippet of an article that is being put out by the liberal media

 https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dakota_Access_Pipeline_protests&oldid=750681488

 

  1. The pipeline encroaches on indigenous lands
  2. The tribal community was not part of the discussion.
  3. The pipeline is disrupting areas of cultural significance.
  4. On site protesters have been peaceful.
  5. A young girl from the tribe was mauled by a security dog.
  6. A female protester was hit by a concussion grenade and may lose her arm.
  7. The pipeline exposes the Tribe's water supply to contamination.

 

Let's take these claims one by one and see if they hold water

  1. "The pipeline encroaches on indigenous lands". The Dakota Access Pipeline is 99% on private land and does not cross into the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal land. 100% of landowners in North Dakota voluntarily signed easements to allow for construction of the pipeline on their property. Almost all of the 1,172 mile pipeline has been sited and approved by relevant state and federal agencies. This means that at no point does the Dakota Access Pipeline cross the Standing Rock reservation or any other reservation. Now, if there is any land that is in dispute between the Standing Rock Sioux any federal, state, or private party, I am unaware of it. If that were the case, then I would see some validity in this argument, but as it stands right now, there is none.
  2. "The tribal community was not part of the discussion". 389 meetings took place between the U.S. Army Corps and 55 tribes about the Dakota Access project. In addition the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe met individually with the U.S. Army Corps nearly a dozen times to discuss archaeological and other surveys conducted to finalize the Dakota Access route. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe were invited to over sixteen meetings and they failed to attend a single meeting. The Tribal leadership moved published Tribal meeting dates and times around when they knew the DAPL was planning to attend and they ignored hundreds of emails.
  3. "The pipeline is disrupting areas of cultural significance". The Dakota Access Pipeline traverses a path that is 99% on private property, to further mitigate any additional impact to the environment and to avoid areas of potential cultural significance, the pipeline was routed parallel to existing infrastructure, such as the Northern Border Pipeline and high voltage transmission power lines. Therefore the Dakota Access route has already been under construction twice before. There were no protests or issues with the buildings of these infrastructures. Additionally, there are professional archeologists on site who are able to identify and properly tend to artifacts and evidence of culturally significant sites if the construction runs across any that were not identified by the surveys. The route of the pipeline was changed over 140 times to avoid culturally sensitive ground.
  4. "On site protesters have been peaceful." There have been several outbreaks of violence which have endangered the safety of the workers and the protesters. Protesters have rushed police lines, threatened and assaulted private security officers, have thrown rocks and bottles at worker, protesters have set fire to barricades, shot at police, and have tried to use homemade explosives.
  5. "A young girl from the tribe was mauled by a security dog". The photograph being used to document this incident is a doctored photo that dates back to a June 2012 story done by the New York Daily News titled "Heat-riled dog bites face of Texas toddler".
  6. "A female protester was hit by a concussion grenade and may lose her arm". This story was reported just a couple of days before Thanksgiving, and was reported as a police crackdown on protester, but here, let me read you one of the articles reporting this incident. I want you to pay attention to the language that is used to report the incident and describe the police.

http://theantimedia.org/media-silence-dapl-police-grenade/

The reporting sounds a lot like the Black Lives Matter protest reporting.

Here is another report from Redoubt News that tells a different story.

http://redoubtnews.com/2016/11/26/pipeline-protester-wilansky-injured/

  1. "The pipeline exposes the Tribe's water supply to contamination". This is on claim that I believe has some legitimacy, especially with the recent ruptures of the Colonial Pipeline in Alabama, not once, but twice. As I said though, it only adds some legitimacy. Pipelines are still the cheapest and the safest way to transport energy liquids and gases. There are already 8 pipelines that cross the Missouri River. One of the oldest was built in 1982. In addition, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's water intake scheduled to be moved by the end of the year, which is 50 miles south of the current water intake and about 70 miles south of the planned Dakota Access river crossing. This extra mileage will allow authorities up to 20 hours to react to any potential spill.

 

Now let's look at the lawsuit that was filed against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The lawsuit was filed by Earth Justice on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe against the Army Corps of Engineers and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Who is Earth Justice, you might ask. Reading from EarthJustice.org

There have even been reports that tie George Soros to Earth Justice. So my question is, is this really a grassroots protest, or are there bigger players involved that are stirring up the controversy?

 

But, let's get back to the lawsuit. Earth Justice, on behalf of the tribe, sued to stop the construction of the pipeline, and the Court did not find in their favor. The Tribe lost their court case, and the court case was on the cultural historic impact. It did not include anything that had to do with potential environmental damages, as portrayed by the media. The DAPL has every legal right to complete the pipeline. The protesters are the ones breaking the law. The construction is happening on Private property, and the owner of the private property has asked that the protesters be removed from their land. The police and private security have been demonized in the media, however, I believe that the police and security officers have shown great restraint. They are still resorting to "less than lethal" means to try and deter the protestors. The police have not shot or killed anyone, when they have had all legal right to do so. The protestors have shot at the police and have even tried to use improvised explosives. I think the police should be given kudos for the way that they have handled themselves so far.

 

So what is this protest really about? Does it have to do with the current method of shipping? As I read to you before, the Dakota Access Pipeline will only carry about 50% of the oil coming out of the Bakken oil fields. How will the other 50% be shipped? Probably the way that it is being shipped right now, by trucks and rail cars. Who are the majority of rail cars owned by right now? George Soros' good friend and fellow multi-billionaire Warren Buffet. What will the Dakota Access Pipeline give us? It will give us a quicker, safer, more efficient method of transporting crude to the refineries that produce gasoline. That would provide the American public with more, less costly gasoline. It could also help the U.S. become more energy independent, and possibly an energy exporter. There is a segment of the U.S. population that would hate to see this happen. They want us to be dependent on the rest of the world for our energy needs. They know that if we have to be reliant on other countries for our energy needs, then we can be controlled by those other countries. Don't forget about Agenda 21, and the TPP, and how those proposed agreements give U.S. control and sovereignty over to people outside of the United States. This is just another attack on the who controls the United States. "The protesters and other parties have effectively declared that the laws of their states and the United States do not work for them, and are now attempting to assert themselves against those laws", and that includes our current President Barrack Obama, for more information on this see the link in the show notes entitled "The Real Victim in the North Dakota Access Pipeline Controversy is the Company Behind the Project." https://cei.org/blog/real-victim-dakota-access-pipeline-controversy-company-behind-project If the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has any grievance it should not be against the owners of the Dakota Access Pipeline, the private landowners, the police, the private security companies, or the workers, but their own Tribal leadership.

 

And one last fact to throw at you, of all of the people that have been arrested at the protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline, 223 of them were from out of state, and most of the people arrested were not members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Since the recording of this episode, Project Veritas has released a third video in it's "Rigging the Election" series. The third video show direct collusion between the Clinton campaign and the non-profit organization Americans United For Change (AUFC). This is a clear violation of campaign finance rules. Here is a link to the third video.
