Trump’s wall would steal tens of billions from individuals and corporations

Trump intends to build the wall and still claims that Mexico will pay for it. Mexico has and continues to refused to even consider the possibility. It is sovereign nation, which means there is nothing Trump can do to force them to pay for it. Trump now claims that taxpayer money will be used to build the wall and afterwards he will force Mexico will repay them.

Trump tweeted:

The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!

Trump is proposing to confiscate money sent to Mexico by those living in the United States. Bob Woodward and Robert Costa reported in the Washington Post in April, 2016

“Donald Trump says he would force Mexico to pay for a border wall as president by threatening to cut off the flow of billions of dollars in payments that immigrants send home to the country, an idea that could decimate the Mexican economy and set up an unprecedented showdown between the United States and a key regional ally. “

On January 25, 2017, it was in the USA Today that Trump told ABC News:

“Trump’s plan calls for Mexico to pay through a combination of factors, including increased fees and taxes to cross the southwest border, and withholding remittances that Mexican nationals in the U.S. send back to their families in Mexico. He could need some help from Congress there to create a legal mechanism to withhold that much money. The plan could also face legal challenges.”

What Trump is proposing to do is confiscate money that is sent from the United States into Mexico. It is nothing short of the theft of billions of dollars. When money is electronically transferred from place to place, there isn’t a litmus test for ethnicity or national citizenship. You don’t need ID to send just to receive the funds. Traditional Western union drafts, money orders, and bank drafts are nearly anonymous, especially when they are paid for with cash or prepaid credit and debt cards that are readily available. Internet providers such as Paypal, send money fast and easily with the only requirement being an email addresses to set up the account to send and receive the funds. The only way to stop the flow is to confiscate all electronic funds and open all letters going into to Mexico, which means that all people and corporations paying for goods and services in Mexico would be robbed of their money.

Those, who think this would be a way to force Mexico to pay for the wall, need to remember commerce flows in both directions across borders. Mexico and other countries could and would reciprocate by seizing funds and assets within their borders. Those, who have hidden their financial assets in the Cayman Island, Switzerland or other countries to avoid paying taxes, could suddenly find their accounts frozen and emptied

If Trump signs an Executive Order to seize the funds it will be challenged and be over turned either by Congress or the Supreme Court. Not even the President can circumvent the law and what Trump proposes is widespread, indiscriminate theft. Once over turned, Trump will point the finger and blame others for taxpayers footing the bill for the wall. Like always, he will refuse to take responsibility for his ignorance of the domestic and international law as well as the fallout from the damage he causes.

No matter what happened President Obama was calm and confident. His composure encouraged others to find that same strength in themselves. He empowered others to be compassionate, rational, and courageous. By calming down, they could step back to find reasons, facts,and evidence.

Trump loses control at the slightest provocation. He encourages and incites chaos. Fearful and angry people are easier to control and manipulate with their bigotry and racism. They become trapped in finding someone other than themselves to blame for the challenges in life, People like Trump give them someone to blame and encourage their hatred, fear, and paranoia. As they become stuck in flight or flight mode and can’t think beyond the moment, making it impossible for them to connect the dots back to the true source of their fear, pain and hatred,

Obama promoted rational reason, compassion, courage, and faith. Trump incites chaos, fear, anger, and hatred. That is the difference between them and the reason we will never accept Trump.

Perfect timing as always.  This morning I was thinking about words.  Whether we intend it or not, our words have the power to create what we say.  Every word we utter is written on the universal’s to do list. This morning I official erased all the harmful words I said about myself and others.  I asked that the reasons behind them be healed with forgiveness and love.  I asked that they be replaced with I forgive you.  I love you.  I bless you.

Focus on the words and thoughts that evoke the very best within you and those around you. Be a contributor of empowering energy, not a critic of other people’s energy, for it does not matter what t…

As independent contractor or representatives, you don’t have to rely on the company to promote the products you sell. In fact, most companies expect you to run multi-level campaigns. Relaying on generic promotions and marketing supports the whole company, but not yourself. Eventually, it would trickle down to you. But wouldn’t you prefer to be first in line for the benefits of your work.

As a writer, producer, and editor I can support your efforts to become successful by writing press releases and producing videos/commercials.

Combining two concepts, Never Can Say Good-bye creates an innovative spin on the ghostly genre. With a tagline, “When love is forever, death is only the beginning,” it is comparable to Ghost and The Others.

Imprisoned in her family’s home, the spirit of a murdered child waits for her parents to free her. But they have moved on to new lives as has her killer. Randi must bring them back together, so that they can forgive themselves and make amends. If she succeeds, they will all heal and she will be freed to also reincarnate. If she fails, their need for revenge will damn them all.


You can always find reasons to feel offended. We encourage you instead to find reasons for gratitude and happiness. Your world, and the world of those around you, will become much brighter.

The difference between a commercial and internet video isn’t the quality of the production, but the length of time and diversity of the message. Both follow the same format of identifying a problem, presenting your product or service as the solution to that problem, and giving contact or purchase information so that the customers may solve that problem by purchasing your product or service. Both also require high audio and video production values. However, at this point, the venues diverge.

Broadcast commercials must meet industry standards for consistency in length due to the two minute commercial break format. The most popular length continues to be 30 seconds. However, due to financial reasons most broadcast stations also offer both 10 and 15 second spots. Although they are less costly, their length also severely limits their effectiveness as promotional tools. Longer commercials give more detail, yet they are more costly. However, there is a generic class of 60, 90, and 120 minute ads that are bought in bulk without any airtime restrictions that are relatively inexpensive. This may seem like a good deal on the surface, but they are plugged in wherever there is unsold commercial airtime, which frequently ends up in late night or on unpopular programming. With the goal being reaching the broadest audience, these commercials are more miss than hit. Strategically speaking, a person must be exposed at least three times to a message before she or he retains the information enough to purchase the product or service. Each airtime buy is one time shot at the audience. Once the commercial airs, more time must be purchased in order to continuing sharing you message.

Internet videos are not limited by length or broadcast content standards. However, many websites do regulate for both violence and sexual content. Unlike broadcast venues, videos can run any length. The extended format of the videos makes it very easy to go into detail about your product or service, including adding demonstrations and testimonials. Additionally, videos keep the potential customers on your site or blog longer, which increases the likelihood they will become a loyal client. Websites, such as YouTube and Vimeo, accept much longer videos, which makes sharing the video on websites, blogs, and on your social networking sites much easier not only for you, but the link and embedding code also allows others to promote your work in their networks. Once produced internet videos become one of your most cost effective tools in your marketing toolbox as there is no additional costs connected to its distribution.

If you are feeling isolated and powerless, you are not alone. Many feel as you do.

During these challenging times when fear and self-doubt abound, hope fades. As it becomes a far off memory, it’s easy to get lost in the despair. It’s easy to give up.

Sometimes it seems simpler to go with the flow and hope for the best. That path may seem easier, but it rarely leads us where we need and want to go. In order to go forward, we must go back to find those pieces of ourselves that believed we were worthy of love and respect. It’s only by reclaiming those aspects of ourselves that we are able to understand the reasons behind the events in our lives. The understanding leads to healing, which empowers us to take back control over our own lives. God saw a Butterfly helps those, who seek to understand the challenges of their lives. It is never too late to be forgiven or to forgive.

God saw a Butterfly is available as an Amazon Kindle and as a PDF on the author’s website. Proceeds will be used to fund the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Buying the PDF gives more support toward the production costs.

Horses and Heroes is a Reality TV series, which combines the highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. Each season will bring together the veterans from WWII to the current conflicts. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions to their physical and emotional challenges. They know the talk, because they have walked the walk. They see the dodges and will be able to call each other on them. Sparks may fly. Tempers may flare, especially when they force each other to face the ghosts. But will also be laughter and fun as they rebuild the comradery, which kept them safe and strong. The snarkiness and practical jokes between the branches don’t simply end. There is always room for just one more. When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone and give them the information as well as the permission to also heal. They will help each other find their way back to the world. Veterans can’t go back and make a brand new start; but they can start from now and make a brand new end.
