  • I Got A Phone Call From WA DC

    Yep, May 19, 2017, Rep Kilmer’s Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    I received the call on my time,  12:50 PM West Coast time.

    We had about a 20 minute conversation.

    The rest of the story  is the timing  and content of the ridiculously absurd  email Rep Kilmer Friday, sent to me May 19, 2017 10:52 AM.

    ————————————————————

    THIS IS THE STORY

    I have been emailing  a bunch of the postings on this website to Rep Kilmer on his “contact me”.  Checking the box I want a response.

    It took some goading, doing something continuously, provoking and  annoying, to stimulate action, reaction but I finally got  a  response from Kilmer’s office in WA DC.

    Martha wants to know

    What  I want from WA STATE Representative Derek Kilmer?

    Really? What do I want? This is my 920th posting on behindmyback.org. established  Jan 29, 2013

    Simply put, I want what Abraham Lincoln   wanted on Nov 19, 1863 “Gettysburg Address” that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    ———————————————————-

    What do I want?

    As a concerned American Grandmother, with three children, (10) grandchildren and (9) great grand children…

    I want exactly the same as We the hard working  American citizens want, the WA DC. establishment  of elected Representatives, both Republican’s  and Democrat’s to work for the American people not the party.

    What “we the American people want” is for all elected MEMBERS OF CONGRESS et al, like resistance, bad mouthing, obstructing, Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Cantwell, Murray, and Kilmer to follow the lead of President Trump and put America and the American people first.

    ——————————————————————————-

    To the WA DC Politico establishment congress et al,  I would ask…

    “When honor and the law no longer stood  on the same side of the line, what did you stand for?

    You, members of congress et al, had a choice

    “You always have a choice. don’t ever imagine you don’t. Whatever you do, it’s a decision and you have to accept responsibility for it. That’s when honor becomes more than empty words.”

    Next time you’re faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, vote for the right thing. it will hurt all American’s less in the long run.”

    —————————————————–

    You, the establishment politicians,  lost the election on Nov 8, 2016.

    YOU WERE OVERWHELMINGLY  REJECTED BY AMERICAN VOTERS

    GET OVER IT.

    TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE WAS NOT A  UNITED NATIONS GLOBALIZATION POLITICIAN AND HE LOVES AMERICA

    “WHEN HONOR AND THE LAW NO LONGER STOOD  ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE LINE, WHAT DID TRUMP STAND FOR?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE HAD A PLAN FOR AMERICA. HE  SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FIRST 100 DAY PLAN FOR AMERICA.

    AMERICAN VOTERS HAD A CHOICE

    IT WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    WITHOUT AMERICA THERE WOULD BE NO FREE WORLD

    WITHOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP THERE WOULD BE NO AMERICA

    AMERICA HAS DULY ELECTED  INTELLIGENT, HONORABLE, HONEST,  STRONG, LAW ENFORCING, HARD WORKING CONSTITUTIONALLY MOTIVATED,  TRULY PATRIOTIC, GLOBALLY POWERFUL  AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

    WHAT DO I WANT FROM WA DC?

    READ THE PLANS FOR AMERICA THAT MADE DONALD J. TRUMP PRESIDENT.

    Members of congress et al, The Next time you are  faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, protecting America’s borders, creating prosperity, like putting justice on the right side of the law, vote for the right thing for the American People.

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ———————————————————————————

    Kilmer’s Martha and I talked for about 20 minutes, partly about lies and atrocities committed in America.

    The Benghazi lies, that I knew about two weeks after it happened and told Kilmer about in 2012.  The media cover up of the rape of a five year old developmentally disabled girl in Twin Falls Idaho, (got no response from Kilmer, Cantwell or Murray)  Female genital mutilation,  by a doctor Detroit U.S.A.  practicing medicine in Henry Ford Hospital.

    Martha said she would check out my website.

    And,  when Martha asked me What I wanted  Rep Kilmer to do about Obamacare, I said, I want Rep Kilmer to stand up in the U.S. House of Representative, cross the isle, and support a bipartisan fix in the best interest of the American people..

    I asked Martha to let me know when Rep Kilmer will be on C-SPAN doing it.

    The bottom line

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ————————————————————————

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    Yep, May 19, 2017 Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    My time in Port Angeles WA,  12:50 PM

    Martha and I  had a 20 minute conversation 42 MINUTES  later WA DC time

    I received the  ridiculously absurd ..wildly illogical and wholly inappropriate robo response email from Rep Kilmer

    MORE ABSURD SNIPPETS FROM  KILMER’S EMAIL

    Kilmer shares my concerns…

    Kilmer appreciates me taking my time to share my thoughts with him.

    Kilmer thinks about the future he wants for his two little girls. He wants  his  daughters – and all kids.

    Kilmer says, Unfortunately, the new Trump Administration appears to have the wrong priorities.

    Kilmer says, Please know that I will continue to oppose these efforts.

    Kilmer says, America is the sum of its diverse parts, and Kilmer says he will vehemently oppose any attempts to undermine protection of our values.

    Kilmer says Trump has called into question the rule of law.

    Kilmer says, He  will also do all he can to ensure that Congress exercises its oversight authority and advocates for the rule of law.

    Kilmer says, If we are going to advance thoughtful, positive policies

    and if we are going to stop wrong-headed, divisive ones,

    we need citizens like you to be engaged. Thank you for that.

    Dear Ms. Hewett,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about President Donald Trump and the policies his administration is pursuing. I share your concern, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    When I think about the next four years, I think about the future I want for my two little girls. I want my daughters – and all kids – to be able to get a top-notch education where their class sizes are small and their teachers are treated like professionals. As they grow older, I want my kids to be able to go to college without taking on mounds of debt. When they’re old enough, I want each of them to be able to get a good job that pays a good wage and has decent benefits – where they’re respected as working people. I want that for all Americans. I want my daughters to grow up in a world where discrimination is a thing of the past – where regardless of your race, religion, gender, orientation, ethnicity, ability or disability, you are a valued member of our community and our country. I want that future for them. I want them to grow up in a world where we protect the planet because we know our kids are only as safe as the water they drink, the air they breathe, and the earth we pass on to them.

    Frankly, those are the issues, among many others, that will be at stake in the years ahead.

    Unfortunately, the new Administration appears to have the wrong priorities. President Trump has already pursued policies that target immigrants, divide refugees by religion, and deny healthcare to millions of Americans. He has sought to undermine ongoing investigations into Russia’s engagement with our election and has called into question the rule of law. He has levied attacks on the judiciary and created enormous concerns about his own conflicts of interest. He has questioned the vital need to protect our environment for future generations.

    Please know that I will continue to oppose these efforts. America is the sum of its diverse parts, and I will vehemently oppose any attempts to undermine protection of our values.

    I will also do all I can to ensure that Congress exercises its oversight authority and advocates for the rule of law. The Constitution calls for protection of civil rights and civil liberties. It calls for the protection of free speech, freedom of religion, and a free press. It created an independent judiciary, empowered to review the actions of the executive branch to ensure they are legal and Constitutional. I respect that, and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that our president respects those principles as well.

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “Public sentiment is everything.” If we are going to advance thoughtful, positive policies and if we are going to stop wrong-headed, divisive ones, we need citizens like you to be engaged. Thank you for that.

    Hearing the views of folks in our region is important to my work. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.
    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

     


  • President Trumps Reformation of America

    President Trumps Reformation of America

    DONALD J. TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN WAS REFORMATION OF U.S. GOV.’S  ESTABLISHED POLICY OF ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL.

    TO TAKE FROM ONE MERELY TO GIVE TO ANOTHER; TO DISCHARGE ONE DEBT BY INCURRING ANOTHER.

    JUN 28, 2016  DONALD TRUMP SAYS U.S. ROBBED BY ‘ELITE’ TRUMP OUTLINED SEVEN STEPS HE WOULD TAKE TO HELP BRING BACK AMERICAN JOBS LOST TO GLOBALIZATION, INCLUDING WITHDRAWING THE U.S. FROM THE …

    ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL STARTED AS AN ISSUE TO  REFORM  CATHOLIC CHURCH TAXES AND TITHES

    BUT, ENDED UP WITH MARTIN LUTHER’S PROTESTANT REFORMATION

    THE WORLD WOULD BE FOREVER TRANSFORMED.

    —————————————————————————–

    Historians usually date the start of the PROTESTANT REFORMATION to the  publication of  95 Theses written in 1517 by Martin Luther, professor of moral theology at the University of Wittenberg

    THE FIRST BOOKS GUTENBERG PRINTED WITH HIS PRESS WERE COPIES OF THE BIBLE.

    ———————————————————-

    The Protestant Reformation

    Gutenberg’s printing press “meant more access to information, more dissent, more informed discussion and more widespread criticism of authorities,” observes the British Library. As such, the printing press played a key role in popularizing ideas associated with the new Protestant faith during the European Reformation, allowing the press to “shape and channel a mass movement,”

    Protestant thinkers used the printing press to spread their ideas across Europe, pamphlets by Reformation leader Martin Luther, outnumbering Catholic writers five to three and making up 20 percent of all pamphlets published between 1500 and 1530. The invention of the printing press removed control of written material from the Catholic Church

    G.R. Evans writes, “THE PRINTING PRESS WAS THE FACEBOOK OR TWITTER OF ITS TIME.” It was a new and exciting technology and it was fast. What was said in print had the power to spread much faster and much farther than anything before it

    THE WORLD WOULD BE FOREVER TRANSFORMED.

    ”NO REFORMER WAS MORE ADEPT THAN MARTIN LUTHER AT USING THE POWER OF THE GUTENBERG PRESS TO SPREAD AND COMMUNICATE HIS IDEAS. BETWEEN 1518 AND 1525, LUTHER PUBLISHED MORE WORKS THAN THE NEXT 17 MOST PROLIFIC REFORMERS COMBINED.

    ———————————————————————————

    UNTIL DONALD J. TRUMP…..

    IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME AND TECHNOLOGY

    HISTORIANS WILL DATE THE START OF THE TRUMP’S REFORMATION OF AMERICA  TO JUNE 16, 2015 WHEN HE FORMALLY ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY FOR PRESIDENT OF  THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    AMERICAN HISTORY IS FILLED WITH NOTABLE PRESIDENTIAL COMMUNICATORS: LINCOLN, FDR, KENNEDY, REAGAN AND OBAMA. EACH, IN THEIR TIME, USED THEIR SKILLED ORATORY ALONG WITH THE TECHNOLOGY OF THEIR DAY, TO DELIVER THEIR MESSAGE TO A NATION AND THE WORLD.

    DONALD J. TRUMP WON SOCIAL MEDIA.

    TRUMP WAS THE MOST GOOGLED CANDIDATE, AND ALSO MOST MENTIONED ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK.

    INDEED, DONALD J. TRUMP BECAME THE MOST PROLIFIC COMMUNICATIONS REFORMER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

     BASED ON THE HISTORICAL PREMISE OF ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL.

    TO TAKE FROM ONE MERELY TO GIVE TO ANOTHER; TO DISCHARGE ONE DEBT BY INCURRING ANOTHER.

    JUN 28, 2016  DONALD TRUMP SAYS U.S. ROBBED BY ‘ELITE’ TRUMP OUTLINED SEVEN STEPS HE WOULD TAKE TO HELP BRING BACK AMERICAN JOBS LOST TO GLOBALIZATION, INCLUDING WITHDRAWING THE U.S. FROM THE …

    —————————————————–

    Since  June 2015 President Trump has said lots of negative things about the media since he began running for the White House.

    Meanwhile, the public’s trust in PUBLIC mass media dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history. Fewer than one in three Americans have confidence in the media to “report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.

    ——————————————————————————

    WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA WIELDED DIRECTLY AND PERSONALLY BY A PRESIDENT ON A MISSION TO “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” HAS BEEN QUITE EFFECTIVE.

    ———————————-

    ON NOV 8, 2016 PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP CHANGED THE WORLD, CASH STRAPPED HARD WORKING AMERICAN CITIZEN VOTED FOR AND ELECTED A NON-ESTABLISHMENT PRESIDENT,  DONALD J. TRUMP  TO STOP THE GLOBALIZATION POLICY OF ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL AND PUT AMERICA FIRST.

    ————————————————————————-

    TRUMP WAS  ELECTED  PRESIDENT  AND THE SOCIAL PHENOMENA, GLOBAL MASS HYSTERIA ENSUED…..

    PERPETUATED AND INFLAMED BY THE CHERRY PICKING LIBERAL PUBLIC NEWS MEDIA WHETHER REAL, OR FALSE NEWS,  TRANSMITTING,  COLLECTIVE ILLUSIONS OF THREATS, OR IMAGINARY, THROUGH A POPULATION IN SOCIETY.

    IN SOCIOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY, MASS HYSTERIA (ALSO KNOWN AS COLLECTIVE HYSTERIA, GROUP HYSTERIA, OR COLLECTIVE OBSESSIONAL BEHAVIOR) IS A PHENOMENON THAT TRANSMITS COLLECTIVE ILLUSIONS OF THREATS, WHETHER REAL OR IMAGINARY, THROUGH A POPULATION IN SOCIETY AS A RESULT OF RUMORS AND FEAR.

    NO KIDDING?  the public’s trust in PUBLIC mass media dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history. Fewer than one in three Americans have confidence in the media to “report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.

    THE LIBERAL MEDIA PRESS REPORTERS HAVE AN  “INCREDIBLE” LEVEL OF  HOSTILITY TOWARDS WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY.

    May 11, 2017 TRUMP SAID THERE’S AN “INCREDIBLE” LEVEL OF HOSTILITY FROM REPORTERS TOWARD PRESS SECRETARY SEAN SPICER AND HIS DEPUTY, SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS.

    —————————————————————-

    SEAN SPICER HAS A JOB AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

    HE IS THE  PRESS SECRETARY

    WHAT IS A HOSTILE WORKPLACE?

    Conduct and speech typically considered “hostile” is intimidating, offensive, abusive and/or otherwise offensive, going beyond rudeness or casual joking. … TO QUALIFY AS A “HOSTILE” WORKPLACE, CONDUCT MUST BE INTENTIONAL, SEVERE, RECURRING AND/OR PERVASIVE AND INTERFERE WITH THE EMPLOYEE’S ABILITY TO PERFORM HIS/HER JOB.

    WHAT IS A HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT?. … In United States labor law, a hostile work environment exists when one’s behavior within a workplace creates an environment that is difficult or uncomfortable for another person to work in.

    WHY WOULD PRESIDENT TRUMP ASK ANYONE TO WORK IN A HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT?

    RECURRING? The 45-year-old held his first press briefing on January 21, 2017  where he admonished TIME Magazine reporter Zeke Miller for falsely reporting Trump had removed a bust of Martin Luther King from the Oval office.

     Feb 24, 2017 – Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, has already had a series of combative encounters.

     May 11, 2017 TRUMP SAID THERE’S AN “INCREDIBLE” LEVEL OF HOSTILITY FROM REPORTERS TOWARD PRESS SECRETARY SEAN SPICER AND HIS DEPUTY, SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS.
