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.

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.

God Saw a Butterfly A divinely inspired transformational parable
A review by Cate Cavanagh
This afternoon was cleverly planned. It required making an appointment with myself and rescheduling all others. I scan the bedroom. The pillows are cautiously situated to sit up straight for the best comfort or reading. I carefully place my tea and biscuits on the night table and my pooch, Marilyn, waits for me so she can stretch along my side. I silence the phone and reach for my afternoon treasure to unfold. I clutch the book greedily for you see in this age of technology it is so very hard to touch and smell a real book
This afternoon is different. I will read a new book written by one of my favorite authors, Theresa Chaze. Follow me as I unfold fold one of those little miracles-Theresa Chaze.
God Saw a Butterfly is a true parable for this world in which so many seek their truth.
Throughout we are drawn into a work that is a metaphor….or is it?  We become aware that life is often just a playful sound track upon which all is merely a dance of questions. But what are the answers? Answers, comfortable or not, glide amidst colorful enchantments of shimmer and love and fear. It is only through the maze of emotions can we begin to see that growth is being aware that all things are integrated, codependent and never apart from the whole of existence…and somewhere along our travels the importance of the “now” must never escape us.
As we seek to grow we must be wary of our fear factor that would alienate us from a glorious universal unity much as the second son caused his own isolation. But that side and his would lead us to deception rather than the truth and faith that is our heritage. As does Shylon we look for home yet we flit from one floor to another with home seeming to stretch beyond our grasp. Yet we must accept that constant growth will guide us through reality after reality hence comprising what is to be our lives. Shylon learns how easily we lose trust in not just ourselves, seeking for “now”, but the collection of wisdom that is our right to achieve if we only let it.
Throughout Shylon’s journey she mirrors our own search for truth but will we, like Shylon, reach a point of abandoning oneself for the illusion of truth? Hopefully our stubborn natures will not disrupt the fine threads that connect the “hither” and “yonder” or from facing the doubt that encourages failure to accept responsibility for our own errors. As Shylon presents a snapshot of her evolution so might we take to opportunity to pause to do the same.
And so the parable begins our own journey of accepting that awareness yields honor and compassion and caring for all levels of life. Herein lies the parable for our birth, life and purpose.

Such a thoughtful and inspirational allegory. Essential reading in these fractious times. Chaze explores a sense of divine wonder, helping us see a universe of microcosms, placing the proper perspective on our petty day-to-day. Highly recommend

What a magical and poetic read! I found this authors gentle but deeply insightful writing very moving and I feel certain that others too will enjoy this short unusual piece of enchantment!
I loved it! God saw a Butterfly was a magical and entertaining short read, that took me on a journey back to my days of childhood wonder. A charming and endearing tale.
 
 
 
God Saw a Butterfly is a transformational parable, which was very loosely inspired by the saying, where a caterpillar sees death, God sees a butterfly.

The proceeds from God Saw a Butterfly will be used to produce the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Combining Peer Support with Equine Therapy, Horses and Heroes will empower veterans to heal and reclaim their lives.

Horses and Heroes is aReality 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. 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. 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.

Elizabeth was asked by her mentor to teach a writing course at a small college. Since she never forgets a kindness, she reluctantly agrees. Arriving in town, she instantly regrets her decision. She wants to run, but she is honor bound to stay. Even as the ghost of a small child begs her to forgive, the memories of another time arouse feelings of hatred that she doesn’t understand and cannot control. When she meets Shane, all of their lives are thrown onto a dangerous collision course from which they can neither run, nor can they hide. The question is, “Can they overcome their tragic past or will they be doomed to repeat it.

Love can be a blessing or the curse that destroys an entire town.

Chapter One

Alyssa struck the match.  Instantly, the end burst into flame.  She held it to the wick of the white candle until it ignited.  Pinching off the match head, she placed on the table. Taking a deep breath, she flipped her long chestnut color braid back over her shoulder; it bounced and swung around her waist. Focusing on her intent, she started the ritual. “Goddesses–Maiden, Mother, Crone I call to thee and ask that you appear to me.”

Picking up the candle, she held it above the surface of the water.  Its glow illuminated just beyond the rim of the black bowl and reflected off the clear surface.  “On this darkest of night, grant me the portal to make things right.  Let me see clearly the moments of the past, so that I may understand what is happening at last.”

Tapping the edge with the candlestick, the glass on glass echoed throughout the dark

room. The vibration rippled through the water.  “As I created a wave in the glass, so I ask you help me with my task.”

She set the candlestick next to the bowl and placed her hands on either side palms down.  “Let me see where his hatred of me had begun, so that his vengeance can be undone.  Why he stalks me I know not why, yet I know the answer lies in times gone by.  Take me back to the time and place, so that I may end the conflict with haste and grace.”

Picking up the four raven feathers, she held them above the candle.  “Goddesses of the raven and night, who left these feathers as a symbol of your might.  I call you now to come me, to create a justice that even the blind may see.  I call your forth to this land to guide the karmic hand.  For those who have done harm to me, let their reckoning begin now–so mote it be.”

Placing the feathers equal distance around the bowl, Alyssa paused for a moment to let their energy settle around her. Stretching her neck side to side, she took a deep breath and allowed her Priestess training to relax her body into a meditative state.  The outer world fell away as she sank deeper within herself and started climbing the stairs to her own soul.  Into the darkness, the staircase spiraled upward, until she reached the iridescent platform where her Akashic record was held.

Suspended in the darkness of endless time, Alyssa looked for a guide to help her.  But she was alone.  In the past, there had always been someone there to act as a guide to help her face the challenge. Uncertain, she stepped up to the pedestal.  If she was to atone for a past error, she would be give direction.  However, if she was merely a player as another strutted and fretted through a karmic lesson, then she could do little more than watch.

The book lay open before her.  On it, fate continued to write. “Book of all my lives, show me karmic tie that echoes into this life.”  The pages flipped, stopping twice before it came to rest on the life named Shannon Marie Cullen.

The image of an auburn haired young woman lifted up off the page and hovered above. Her heart shaped face still had the softness of youth.  Yet the hazel eyes sparkled with old wisdom.  She wore her hair pulled back into a long, single braid.   Although she seemed familiar, Alyssa felt no emotional connection to her.  There was no bond or sense of being between them.  Only a faint familiarity like a tune whose melody echoes in the back of your mind, yet you cannot remember the words or the context in which you heard it.

 

She reached out to touch the image; it reached back.  Yet before their fingertips touched, Shannon Marie vanished only to be replaced by a three dimensional screening of wooded forest.  Rich and lush it sported multiple shades of green, tans and browns as the forest became fields and forest once again.

 

As her perspective changed, Alyssa felt herself zooming to focus on the scene that was most important.  Yet it was more than just pictures and sounds.  The smell of the fields and rushing of the river below sparked memories and long sleeping emotions.

 

No matter where her life led her, she could never find the safe sense of home. Fear always kept her from letting her roots grow too deep.  She had never understood. Her childhood was no better or worse than anyone else’s.  Yet as her spirit drew closer, the familiarity once again made her crave the comfort of home.

 

Through breaks in the leaves, she saw two girls running quickly.  She knew who they were, yet she didn’t feel connected.  Instead, like a moderated film, she watched them from above.  Instead recalling her own memories, the information flowed to her in unspoken words and images as if someone was narrating their story to catch her up with the story.

Shannon Marie ran breathlessly up the glen, quickly followed by her younger sister, Rachael.  Although a year and two months younger, Rachael looked more like Shannon Marie’s twin.

Both girls favored their Scottish heritage with their flaming hair and outspoken temperaments.  Their two older sisters, Elizabeth Marie and Katherine Anne favored their mother’s French heritage both physically and in temperament.  Fair-haired beauties they openly used their feminine assets to manipulate others to get what they wanted.

The plain spoken mannerism of the patriarch of the family along with his two youngest daughters frequently came into conflict with the matriarch and the eldest sisters’ elitism as they boasted of their unclaimable link to the French throne.   They refused to see that no matter which man laid down with the mother, the child could lay no claim to parentage unless they were acknowledged by both the father and family. Jacqueline Marie Katherine de Medici may have lay with the King of France, but the daughter they created was conceived above the sheets–not beneath them.  Jacqueline refused to be silenced at court about the parentage of her growing child within her.  It was the reason Marie marked her for death. But instead of a curse on mother and unborn child, the midnight escaped to Scotland became a blessing as the people’s revolution sought out the privileged nobles.

In the highlands, Abigail Marie Katherine de Medici was born without a father; the fortune and power of the de Medici family hid the stain, but was never washed away.  Having valuable connections in the English and Italian courts, Jacqueline was received as her family station required.  Eventually she attained a small estate and fitted herself into the region.

Currently Ferruolo works at Health First Family Care in their Psychotherapy & Behavioral Health department.  His duties include individual and group outpatient psychotherapy, resource support and advocacy for marginalized populations, multidisciplinary collaborations, and team development.

Horses and Heroes is a reality TV series, which promotes healing rather than bad behavior. Although Equine Therapy will be the stage, the focus will remain on the veterans and how their lives as well as those of their families were changed by the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war.

Horses and Heroes has a ready made market with a demographic that crosses all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and genders, especially the 18 to 35 year age group, many of which are currently returning from service and are being discharged. Our target audience will also include military personnel, veterans, and their families from past conflicts.

Additionally, we will be hiring veterans, both those already in the industry and those looking for new careers, for the jobs behind the cameras.

Bobby Kilgore, the co-host of Horses and Heroes, interviewed Jeannette Taper on the Internet radio show, Until you walk the path, You don’t know where it goes. They talked about her experiences working at the VA as well as sharing her reasons for becoming a whistle blower. Towards the end of the show, there is contact information for the VA, including Robert McDonald, the VA, and the news networks.

Horses and Heroes combines the concepts a talk show with that of a documentary, by intertwining the spontaneity of a talk show with the scripted informational aspects of a documentary. It will utilize both interviews and practical demonstrations of horse therapy to give the audience a full understanding of how and why working with the horses help veterans heal. Although Equine Therapy will be the stage, the primary focus will be on the eight veterans as they sharing what they experienced while they served our country and how those events had a lasting effect on their lives as well as on those who love them.

Horses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm. It is a documentary series, which will help military personnel and veterans find a new way to cope with the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war. Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can’t replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.

A chance meeting created Horses and Heroes.  I met an elderly gentleman in the Borders café.  He was wearing a hat that identified him as a veteran.  I thanked him for his service and we started chatting about his experiences in WW II.  At the time, I was mentally taking notes for a scripted series I was writing called, Operation Home Base; however, our conversation showed me that I had the means to help in a very meaningful way.

His name was William Greene.  Decades later, he still hadn’t come to terms with his guilt and regret.  He survived, but his many of buddies didn’t.  He killed good men just because of where they happen to be born.  Through him, I connected the dots between Operation Home Base and another project, which lead to the creation of Horses and Heroes.

It is easy to get political and throw verbal rock at individuals and agencies.  But what good does it really do?  Pointing out the problem doesn’t create solutions.  Everyone knows what needs to be done.  But many people are too busy pointing fingers to actually find answers.

Horses and Heroes is my solution.  It is a Realty TV series that focuses on healing rather than glorifying bad behavior.  Working with the horses helps veterans find new ways to cope with their physical and emotional challenges.  Telling their stories in a safe, supportive environment gives them the means to face their ghosts head on.   Horses and Heroes can’t get them back what they lost.  War took that person. Yet it doesn’t have to be the end of their story.  One of my favorite sayings is, “You can’t go back and make a brand new start, but you can start from now and make a brand new end.”  Horses and Heroes will help veterans find the strength and courage within themselves to rebuild their lives and create that brand new end.

Everyone serves in the own way.  Although, I don’t have the temperament for the military, I greatly respect those who stand the wall.  I choose use my talents to help veterans tell their stories in such a way that they will heal themselves and show others that healing is possible.

Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can’t replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts and life experiences. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.
