There have been many assertions that President Trump's investments and holdings (both domestic and international) violate the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

It's 1976 all over agin, only worse.
Ipsism.com - It's 1976 All Over Again
Which One Do You Marry?
| One's a high maintenance party girl who tells you up front that she's going to take your money. She tells you that your greed and wasteful ways are the cause of all of the problems in the world. -- You know that you're going to end up broke and homeless - but all you can think about is the honeymoon. You are going to get screwed - but not the way that you want.|
The other is the girl next door. Loyal, faithful and wants to build a future with you; maybe even willing to die for you.
Which One for the family?
| || You always wanted a sports car. High cost, high maintenance, speed. You know you can't afford it but man would you ever look cool behind the wheel. Neighbors, even people all over the world, wish they could have one. But what about the wife and kids? How are they going to be able to take the ride with you?|
The other - a minivan? You never thought that you'd have one of those. But it's what you need to carry the kids, get the groceries, be a grown up.
Which One Alarms You?
I'm from the
I'm Here to Help.
You Have To Be
| || Anyone who's ever had someone from the government come in to help knows what that means: more senseless regulations that increase your costs without increasing quality; fines and penalties for not complying with the regulations that you never even knew; putting you out of business, just to be fair to someone else.|
Self reliant means being responsible. It means taking responsibility for yourself, your mistakes. But, it also means that you are entitled to the rewards for your decisions, your hard work. You decide how your money is spent, who is deserving of your charity.
Which One Scares You?
I'm from the IRS,
Let's look at your returns.
There Is No Free Lunch.
| || Ever have the IRS tell you, 'you've paid too much' in taxes? That they've taken enough?|
You know that there's no free lunch. Someone always has to pay. When the government and politicians offer a free lunch, it means that the taxpayer is going to be picking up the tab. It means that if you're a taxpayer, YOU're going to be the one picking up the tab.
YOU are the 'Other' people.
| || OPM means 'Other People's Money' Ever notice how some are so free with OPM? How they are willing to spread OPM but not their own? How they can cure the problems of the world with OPM?|
Do you really want to be the 'Other' people?
East Coast Lawyer
Working Class People
| || Sure, they're stereotypes. But stereotypes earned the term because that's what you can expect. What do you think of when you hear East coast lawyer? Chicago politician? Chicago political machine? Extreme Liberal? Stereotypes. How do you think they got that reputation?|
What's wrong with working class people? What's wrong with working for a living?
Will you help our children?
Dear Ipsism Cerebri Reader,
Ipsism Cerebri's mission is to make you aware.
This election has similarities to the 1976 election. I know, a lot of you weren't even born then. That's why this old coot reminds you to look at the facts. In 1976, there was a Republican President with a not-so-good economic record. The press and media (especially Saturday Night Live) were relentless in criticizing him. Their answer? Jimmy Carter. With the media's help, Carter was elected. The not-so-good economy tanked. unemployment in the teens; mortgages, in the teens. Combined, they later became known as the misery index. By the time that Carter's first term completed, even the Democrats were asking for an ABC election. That's Anybody But Carter. Luckily, the Democrats had the bad judgment to have Teddy Kennedy challenge Carter. Chappaquiddick and Mary Jo Kopeckni did Teddy in and Carter was nominated for a second term.
Now, we've got a young charismatic Democrat vying for the presidency. He espouses what is at least a far left if not socialist agenda. He's intelligent, verbally nimble and willing to tell you what ever you want to hear. He describes himself as a blank slate where everyone can project their own hopes. He is everyone's every man. Which means that no one has been able to define him.
Throughout this election cycle, the public has been barraged with less than truthful doublespeak that would do honor to George Orwell's Big Brother of the book 1984. Before you cast your vote, look for the truth, yourself. Don't rely on others to give you answers or make decisions for you. Ultimately, You are responsible for your self, your actions, your family.
At Ipsism Cerebri, we do not ask you to believe what is written or said, not even by Ipsism. We ask that you consider the information and determine the answers for yourself.
In his book, 'Audacity of Hope', Obama blames ALL of the problems of the world on "white greed" and wasteful consumption by whites.
Obama spent 20 years as a member of a church which preaches Black supremacy and that the white man is the devil. (See the trinity web site archives - the new trinity site has changed after Reverend Wright - http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://tucc.org/black_value_system.html )
Obama's church pledged to work against the middle class and Michelle Obama was a lecturer against being middle class.
· Obama pledged allegiance to Black leaders but now he disavows those leaders and pledges allegiance to you, for your vote. Which allegiance do you believe?
· One of Obama's first bills in the US Senate was to give an additional $800 Billion to Africa -- that's more than the bank bailout.
· Obama has consistently lied to make himself look better to the group he's seeking. He said his birth was the result of his parents' involvement with the Selma March in 1964, but he was born in 1961. He said his father received a Kennedy scholarship to come to America. But Obama's father came to America 2 years before the Kennedys started funding the scholarships. Obama tells the Hispanics that everyone should learn to speak Spanish but Obama does not speak any foreign language, even though he lived in foreign countries. And the lapel flag pin... Bill Ayers... And... And... While any one of these might be overlooked, collectively they form a pattern of dishonesty and deceit. A leopard does not change its spots and a snake can't travel in a straight line. Do you want a president who proves himself a liar even before he's elected?
· Obama's book says that in college he sought out the student radicals, the leftist groups and the Marxist professors. His career shows that pattern never changed. He sought out Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, ACORN, his cousin Odinga... Again, a leopard does not change its spots.
· Obama consistently denies those he has worked with, and for, when they might cost him votes. Acorn, Ayers, Wright, Farrakan, leftist groups.
· When confronted with his ACORN involvement, he deflects the question by saying that ACORN never PAID him to train their members. There's that East Coast lawyer. Not denying that he was involved, just saying that ACORN didn't pay him.
· Obama has the MOST liberal voting record in the Senate; Biden is the third most liberal.
· Obama followed Farrakan to the Million Man March - check his book - now denies Farrakan when he wants your vote.
· After the 9/11 attack, Obama wrote that we need to find out what the US did to cause the attacks. An elegant restatement of Rev. Wright's Chickens coming home to roost.
· Obama says that America is the greatest country and he's going to affect FUNDAMENTAL change. What will America be after Obama has changed its fundamentals?
· Obama says that his greatest political surprise was how well the welfare to workfare program worked. - Seems he just couldn't believe that people actually live better when they're NOT living on the dole.
· Obama says that he grew up with midwest values. He talks family. But, he decided not to go see his mother when she was terminally ill (see, Time magazine April 21, 2008), now he visits his grandmother but doesn't take his wife and children so that they can see their dying g-grandmother. Obama's half-brother lives in poverty, making $12/year - yes, twelve dollars. Barry makes millions a year but doesn't spread any of his wealth to his own family. But, he wants to take your money to send to them.
· Obama has been responsible for funneling over two million dollars to ACORN and its subsidiaries. Yet, he says that he barely knows them.
· Obama wants to raise taxes, even though he acknowledges that it will decrease revenues for the country. His reasoning is 'fairness'. In the context of his other statements, it's a punishment for those who have done well. Punishment of whites, irrespective of the detriment to the country.
· Obama says that he's going to give tax cuts (code for welfare) but never says where the money is going to come from except 'those making more than $250,000'. Get a hold on reality. Even if you took EVERYTHING that the over $250k group earned, it wouldn't fund his plans. Obama is going to place a huge tax on business. Do you really think that business is just going to pay an additional tax, make less and have the money go to those who don't pay taxes? No. Those businesses are either going to leave the country (as many have done) or pass the increases on to those who buy their products, or fire people in favor of automation. That means everyone is going to be paying more for everything they buy, if they can retain their jobs. The pittance that Obama sends is going to be lost in the increased cost of living.
· Obama and the Democrats try to hide that the major economic problems America now face are due to the same liberal policies that Obama wants to expand. Obama and ACORN had lawsuits and lobbied Congress to promote the subprime lending legislation that caused the current economic melt down. Defending Obama's and ACORN's actions is like saying that an arsonist who started a forest fire only had a match and the match couldn't damage the entire forest.
Liberals weren't planning on the unintended consequences of other liberal policies coming into play. Namely, the Democrat mandate (signed by Bush) to convert to ethanol fuel. That mandate kneecapped the entire economy with increased fuel and food costs; then dominoed into the housing decline; which dominoed into increased unemployment; and then dominoed into people abandoning their homes, or unable to make payments. All were liberal policies to spread the wealth and give fairness. But, instead, they produced unintended consequences which are destroying our America. Will they admit it? Will they tell you that they are the PROBLEM, not the solution? What do you think?
· Since the early nineties, Obama has been saying that the whites must be punished with more taxation. He considers this a matter of conscious. Apparently Obama believes that Blacks can't make it on their own; they must have a subsidy from the government. Even though Obama could make it, he believes other Blacks can't - obvious elitism.
· The radicals of the sixties wanted welfare in order to break the bank of a capitalist society. Now, Obama wants to increase welfare in the name of 'fairness'. When has it not been fair that those who work hardest get to have and keep more?
· Obama says that he wants to give tax cuts to people who don't pay taxes. Orwellian doublespeak for increasing the welfare state.
· Obama has told you that he's going to increase taxes to "spread the wealth". Orwellian doublespeak for redistribution of wealth.
· Obama changes his proposed policies at every criticism. It really doesn't matter. He's the blank slate, he'll say anything that you want to hear, until he has your vote. Then, just like Clinton, once elected, he'll say that he really, really tried hard but just couldn't make it happen. Obama will say that things were worse than Bush let on and it's Bush's fault that Barry can't keep his own campaign promises. It will never be that Barry lied to you to get elected. The only thing that you can count on is that Barry will increase your taxes and increase welfare.
· OBAMA ties to Muslim Terrorist Cousin - Talk About Barry's Judgment! Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga has said he is a cousin of Barack Obama. In August and September 2006, Obama traveled to South Africa, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia as a congressional delegation of one (Codel Obama) (“Codel Obama” The Hill 9/7/2006) While in Kenya, Obama consistently appeared at the side of fellow Luo tribesman, Raila Odinga (“your agent for change’), who was running for President of Kenya. Obama’s partisan support for Odinga was considered so transparent that the Kenyan Government spokesman, Alfred Matua, complained of political posturing to aid Odinga’s election chances: “It is very clear that the senator has been used as a puppet to perpetuate opposition politics,”(“Walking The World Stage” Newsweek 9/11/06) And, “…we earlier thought he was mature in his assessment of Kenyan and African politics,” Mutua told AFP.”We forgive him because it is his first time in the Senate and he is yet to mature into understanding issues of foreign policy,”
Odinga subsequently lost the controversial presidential election. Then, in what appeared to many — including Human Rights Watch – as a coordinated strategy from the top, Odinga's Luo supporters (a core of whom call themselves "The Taliban”) engaged in what US Envoy Jendayi Frazer called “clear ethnic cleansing” of the Kikuyu opposition.
Odinga’s supporters went on a rampage—burning Kikuyu homes and businesses, raping Kikuyu women, and murdering everyone in their path—including at least 50 Christian Kikuyu women & children who had sought refuge in a church. They burned them alive.
Raila Odinga’s father Oginga Odinga was leader of the “Kenya People’s Union” and perceived as a “committed socialist” (“Oginga Odinga: Kenya’s Most Persecuted Politician” Kenya: Key Issues 8/21.2002). Odinga Sr. was also the political ally of fellow Luo; Barack Obama Sr.(The Risks of Knowledge (Ohio University Press, 2004) p. 182)
What we do know about Odinga is not good. A former Minister of Energy, Odinga is reported to have been set up in the oil business by the al Bakri Group and Muammar Quaddafi
Perhaps most troubling is Odinga’s links to Islamic extremists in Kenya. According to Voice of America and the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya, on 8/29/07, Odinga signed a secret agreement (exposed 11/27/07) with Sheikh Abdullah Abdi of the National Muslim. Odinga promised that Muslims suspected of terrorism would be safe from extradition — thereby establishing a ‘safe haven’ for terrorists in Kenya.
The Kibaki government had been a leading supporter of the US’s efforts to dismantle Al-Queda cells in Kenya (National Commission of Terrorist Attacks on the United States- 9/11 Report) and elsewhere. Raila Odinga made opposition to the government’s crackdown of suspected Al Queda supporters a cornerstone of his campaign.
At no point has Senator Obama tried to distance himself from Odinga.
Clearly, Obama campaigned for someone who is corrupt, ruthless and has financial ties to terrorists. More importantly, Obama campaigned for a candidate who had the stated objective of dismantling US & Kenyan government efforts to root out Al Queda and other terrorist organizations. Organizations that had already caused the deaths of hundreds of Americans and Africans in embassy bombings. Senator Obama’s actions — intentional or not — were in direct conflict with the efforts and interests of US national security.

Make no mistake. Throughout his life, Obama has not just been acquainted with socialists, he has sought them out and supported them, regardless of their ties to Islam and terrorists such as Ayers and his cousin, Odinga. Obama has told you that he he wants to effect fundamental change to subvert America from a bastion of freedom and prosperity into a socialist welfare state. He's used pretty words and doublespeak to make you think you're voting for a utopia. It's not going to happen. Seek out the truth, know what you're voting for or against and then vote for what you want. But, vote for reality, not pie-in-the-sky happy talk.
