JusTice Amy Coney BaRRETT SWORN In AfTeR SEnate CONFIRmation

October 26, 2020

The U.S Senate voted tonight in a 52-48 vote to confirm President Trump’s third Justice to be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court – Amy Coney Barrett, Esq. The 48 year old mother of seven children, the first Supreme Court Justice to be young enough to have children, is also now the only sitting Justice to not have graduated from an Ivy League college. (Harvard/Yale) The Notre Dame Law School grad breaks up this monopoly in a good way.

Nominated by President Donald J. Trump in May 2017 for the Seventh U.S Court of Appeals, she was vetted by the U.S. Senate and voted on in October 2017. As an exceptionally qualified candidate, she was easily sworn in to this appointment despite extremely long-term U.S. Senator Diane Fienstein.  As the top Judiciary Committee member, in 2017, she made an anti-Catholic comment to Barrett – “the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.” 

It was a fine moment to see Justice Clarence Thomas swear her in this evening, administering the constitutional oath. Barrett’s role as Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court will be able to begin after Chief Justice John Roberts administers her oath on Tuesday. Roberts, who was considered a conservative appointment to the court at the time under President George W. Bush, has proved to be at best, in the middle. All true patriots of America hope to see Justice Amy Coney Barrett, rule fairly and according to the Constitution.

Town Hall Debates – A Sabotage VS. A Conversation

October 15, 2020

Like most viewers that are knowledgeable about politics on a daily basis, I expected tonight’s interviews given to President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President and Democrat Party Nominee, Joe Biden, to be hardball vs. softball. Trumps questions – hardball; Biden’s questions – softball. The results were worse than anyone could imagine. All of the questions were a complete retread of the lefts tired talking points for the President, which have all been answered by Trump a multitude of times and have no bearing.

The shrill NBC broadcaster given tonight’s assignment, Savannah Guthrie, was chomping at the bit to ask absurd questions, glibly interrupt and in her own mind seemed to believe she knew more than the President. She was a complete embarrassment for the left. Guthrie had complete disrespect for a sitting President, who has immense popularity that proves the mainstream medias ignorance in recognizing this status.

All questions were clearly written before the televised event, for both the voters selected to ask President Trump a question, and for Guthrie. Guthrie did try to rebut Trump off her cards, but this breach only showed her partisanship.

Bizarrely, within the first ten/fifteen minutes of the televised program, she showcased questions which included sexual pedophilia that she masked just for the words to be transcribed. Ms. Guthrie, you’re talking to the wrong Party Candidate. (This is all Democrat scandal – look up Jeffrey Epstein and all who willingly went to his private island to have sex with under aged girls; Huge Clinton Fundraisers and their close relationship with contributor Harvey Weinstein – I just realized writing this paragraph the list is too long to post now. ) Regardless, I can’t imagine network personnel asking any sitting President any questions of this kind – if so, they certainly could have asked President John F. Kennedy many similar queries.

Trump did his best to be polite to the blatantly partisan interrogator, who could be called many other words, but I’ll let the people decide as I’m sure they’ve already come to the same conclusion. Another premeditated hit job by the left that wastes President Trump’s time, as well as American voters.

Moving on to the Biden town hall interview. Out of curiosity, I tuned in when Trump’s broadcast went to advertisements, and briefly afterwards. At least it wasn’t as bad as where interviewer Barbara Walters back in the day, Biden would be asked what tree he would be if he could be a tree – or what his favorite color was – or what his favorite toppings on a pizza were – but, there was no discussion of any serious scandal relevant in the news currently. He continued to vacillate on fracking emphasizing it needed to be “managed very very well” and said he would finally give his answer on whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court after the Senate results on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination.

There were no questions about former Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, and the big current news story from the New York Post, which is being censored by social media icons, which details the incriminating emails and video found on a computer left at a store for repair. The store’s consumer agreement made clear that if any computer was not picked up after 90 days, it would become their property.

Whether it was Hunter himself who left it at this shop, an aide or friend, no one returned for it, so the owner of the store kept it. Seeing what was on the hard drive, he turned it in to Rudy Giuliani or one of his staff. If this had been turned into the New York Times, no one would have ever seen this data.

Voters need to realize whenever President Trump is in a debate on national television hosted by a major network, the moderator will be a democrat holding loaded questions that have little to do with truth and much to do with alienating Trump voters for the purpose of electing the addled former VP Biden. Biden, as well as running mate Harris, another story for another day, will only be given easy Q and A’s with no real journalism behind them to find out the real truth.

Why We CELEBRATE COLUMBUS DAY

October 12, 2020

There were many fine articles written for publication today as to why Columbus Day remains immensely significant as to the history of the United States of America, by people such as Jarrett Stepman. In his post today, “The Truth About Columbus,” he covers who Columbus really was as an explorer, what his real goals were in making this famous voyage and discusses how the view of Columbus from a man of courage and vision has been destroyed over time by a historian, Howard Zinn, who was far to the left. 

Another article explains how the lynching of eleven Italian-Americans brought about Columbus Day out of respect for this group of European immigrants who brought much to our country but were often unappreciated and disparaged. https://medium.com/@nevaer1/the-lynching-that-gave-us-columbus-day-eb5179b01aca

The Wall Street Journal published online this piece yesterday: https://www.wsj.com/articles/columbus-day-stands-for-diversity-11602446541

Zinn hated not only Columbus but North America in general, and pushed his view of Columbus on to generations as one of a man who only was seeking profit, and left a huge massacre of Native Indians behind him. In truth, he was a man seeking not only geographical knowledge (remember people believed back then the world was flat and anyone sailing too far would fall off the edge of the Earth) but also how to bring Christianity and faith throughout the lands.

Yes, like any voyager sailing the seas at this time, some profit was hoped to be found, especially by any royals or investors funding them. Columbus hoped to find money, to bring religion to all to save the world from a perceived apocalypse after the plague and other omens, and bring Jerusalem back into Christian hands. A man of peace, any wrong doings that occurred to Natives, happened during his absence. He was never a slave owner nor did he have anything to do with the slave trade.

Americans today, as well as people from other countries who have started to believe the untrue view of Christopher Columbus, need to also remember that this October 12th national holiday was established to recognize the many Italian-Americans who came to this nation seeking opportunity, contributed greatly to building its landscape, even while they were not welcomed by groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

The KKK were an anti-Catholic anti-Italian racist organization made up of southern white democrats, who did their best to put the brakes on the creation of Columbus Day, and like in modern times today, went out to smash statues, burn, protest and change the positive view of Columbus.

On the 400th anniversary of the Columbus voyage, Columbus Day was presented by then President Benjamin Harrison in 1892, after the horrific largest lynching on record in this country of eleven Italian-American’s in New Orleans, LA. Despite the gesture, it wasn’t until 1934 it became an official national holiday, though some states still refused to recognize it.

Interestingly, Columbus Day remains controversial once again, as active non-peaceful groups in our cities and on our streets today, whether anti-Catholic, anti-Christian, anti-Italian, anti-American, anti-history, anti-Constitution, anti-Founding Fathers, anti-Caucasian, seek to destroy all standing statues of Christopher Columbus as well as his legacy as a brave pioneer on unknown oceans. 

He was the sole individual who had the strength to pursue what he believed to be true, and a man the majority of people that have made him a current object of hatred for all of his greatness could never be. He is a man to be honored and not disgraced.

As our 40th and some believe to be our finest President, Ronald Reagan said in a commemorative note on one Columbus Day:

Columbus is justly admired as a brilliant navigator, a fearless man of action, a visionary who opened the eyes of an older world to an entirely new one. Above all, he personifies a view of the world that many see as quintessentially American: not merely optimistic, but scornful of the very notion of despair.”

According to Columbus himself, “You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Christopher Columbus.

Columbus was the gateway Captain who navigated to Caribbean islands, Central and South American shores, and provided trade for Spain with the development and discovery of the Americas.

President Trump Awards Medal Of Freedom To Talk Radio Host Rush Limbaugh

Those close to the famous host whose syndicated radio program, “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” is heard nationally, said the renowned anchorman was unaware President Trump was going to present him with this most prestigious award during his State Of The Union address. Traditionally, the Medal of Freedom is given during a ceremony that has been planned well in advance for both the President and the recipients.

The First Lady, Melania Trump, who sat next to the famed political commentator and author during the speech, had the honor of placing the medal around his neck, after the President announced to the chamber he was bestowing this award to Limbaugh. Rush was accompanied by his wife of ten years, Kathyrn.

Limbaugh, a true patriot and proud American, revealed to listeners in the final minutes of his Monday show (February 3rd, 2020) that he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. He notified his millions of fans he has the best team of doctors who will determine what his most effective treatment plan is for recovery.

Rush is scheduled to appear on his show this Friday. He is expected to share his insights on receiving the Medal of Freedom, the State Of The Union Address and what it was like to be there live witnessing the positive applause and ovations for the President from his fellow Republicans, as well as the negative response from the Democrats who rarely applauded, even when statements made by the President were good for all of our country.

Democrats also failed to give little positive reaction to the many fine featured guests President Trump invited to be recognized for their amazing stories that personify what makes America great including a serving veteran with a surprise reunion with his wife, and an eighth-grader, Lain Lanphier, who aspires to be an astronaut, who was accompanied by his great-grandfather, Charles McGee, who is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen at the age of 100.

During his time on and off air, Limbaugh will have a variety of notable fellow talk radio hosts filling in for his show. Mark Steyn, a Canadian author and commentator often seen on the Fox News Network, and perhaps most fans favorite substitute host, filled in yesterday and today. He told listeners yesterday he owed Rush everything.

Many people feel this way about the conservative radio host who has contributed so much to countless charities, individuals and causes. We all pray for Rush Limbaugh’s return to good health and many more years on the airwaves.

CPAC 2013: Donald Trump

Written by Juliana Simone

National Harbor, MD – The man known for more than a decade to native New Yorkers as “The Donald” took the stage this afternoon to address an enthusiastic crowd convened for the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference celebrating its 40th anniversary on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland. Self-made billionaire Donald Trump opened his monologue by telling the audience our country is in terrible trouble.

He cited we owed seventeen trillion dollars and have more than a trillion dollar deficit a year. “No country’s ever heard of numbers like this!” he observed. “Likewise, the Republican Party is in terrible trouble,” he continued. “As you get more and more conservative – they get nasty. They don’t like what we say.” Trump segued into the mainstream media and how the President is given unprecedented media protection.

To offer solutions on how we solve our country’s problems, Mr. Trump first pointed out how even the Tea Party, who he loves dearly, says to leave their Medicare and Social Security alone. “To keep these things affordable then the solution is to build a great economy.” “We don’t have one,” he noted. “China does.” “We have to make America great again,” he said in appeal to the room.

On the issue of immigration, Trump stated that when it comes to immigration, eleven million people will be voting Democrat. He believed a candidate can be out in front but (when it comes to Election Day) those eleven million will be voting Democrat. “Republicans are on a suicide mission,” he said. “You’re just not going to get those votes.” Donald Trump inquired further, “Why aren’t we letting Europeans in?” and told the attendees how he had many friends who want to move here and work here – that have been educated here – but we throw them out of the country after earning a degree at Harvard or Wharton and say you can’t move here – so they work somewhere else and work against us. “How stupid is that?” he asked.

The realtor and casino owner gave a nod to fellow Republican Newt Gingrich next saying he loved Newt because he was a member of his club down the road. Trump said he loved anyone who was a member of his club and jested maybe Obama should become a member. He talked about offering to build things at his own expense for Washington but never heard back from anyone.

“Conservative Republicans have to win elections,” he proclaimed. In his observations on the Republican Party, Trump said “Governors are saying it’s the stupid party.” He thought this was a horrible statement for a Governor to make because it was something that could come back to haunt you when the Democrat’s now will turn around and use it against you. Trump told fellow conservatives he believed a Party that spent four hundred million dollars on ads that made Obama look like a super hero was a failure, and that spending money like this with not one victory showed something was seriously wrong.

About himself, he revealed he’d made over eight billion dollars in his life and employed tens of thousands of people. When he filled out his financial forms (when considering running for President in 2012) people were surprised. He said he was continually criticized by “total light weights” – guys in dirty shirts who would say about him, “Donald Trump? He’s nothing.”

Donald went on to explain people liked success and though he liked Mitt Romney, he felt the one mistake he made was that he didn’t talk enough about his success and the great things he did. He reflected they were on the defensive instead of being on the offensive where they should have been.

In regards to Iraq, Trump said we spend 1.5 trillion dollars there and we lose great great young people – for what? He said at first he was told it was for the oil, so he thought, okay, I get that – but we didn’t take the oil. He reminded viewers we’re the second largest oil reserve after Saudi Arabia. He believes for soldiers that are killed we should give those parents a million dollars for the son they lost because a million dollars is nothing compared to the money over there.

He described how he just had to place a huge order for televisions from South Korea. Why? People asked him why he didn’t buy the televisions here. “We don’t make televisions here anymore,” he explained.

“We’re run by either very foolish or very stupid people. Our country is a total mess. What we need is leadership,” he opined. He projected if we build and grow our economy, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security all can be affordable again when we have a strong economy. North Dakota has a great supply of energy, but we can’t go get it, he mused, so we go to Saudi Arabia to get it! They can’t believe what they’re getting away with. “The Republicans, and the Democrats, say we gotta cut, we gotta cut, we gotta cut…it’s because we’re not cutting the mustard!”

In closing, Trump said, “We have to bring money in and take back our jobs from China. We have to start building again, manufacturing again and our problems will be solved. Let’s make this country strong again!” The Donald left the stage to strong applause.

Georgia Six – Handel Wins Easily

Written by Juliana Simone

No surprise for anyone who understands politics, Republican Congressional candidate in the sixth district of the state of Georgia, Karen Handel, won handily tonight by four to five percent, or thirteen thousand votes. This district, most importantly on the map because it was former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s district, showed despite the demographics changing here with more democrats moving out of Atlanta into the suburbs, Georgians still stay true to their beliefs in what America is and still should be today.

Democrats put this race on a historic map in spending over fifty million dollars donated almost solely from out of state sources – the usual suspects – liberals from Hollywood, George Soros PAC’s and former supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, who both lost big to President Donald J. Trump in the presidential election 2016.

Losing to Handel, was a young former democrat aide, Jon Ossoff. Even with the monumental amount of money donated to him, the most in American history, he failed to give the democrats in the White House and their voters across the country the results they thought they could buy. Ouch. Another example that money can’t buy an election. Liberals and the mainstream media hoped to once again use this election as an example that American’s regretted voting for President Trump and this was a positive indicator Democrat’s would regain majority rule over the House in Washington, D.C. in 2018.

Congratulations to Karen Handel, Congresswoman Karen Handel (GA-6), the RNC, the GA State GOP and all voters who cared about the future of their country from Georgia.

Happy Birthday, President Donald J. Trump!

United States of America’s 45th President, Donald J. Trump, celebrated his 71st birthday today. If you did not hear this on the mainstream media, except for perhaps a passing or condescending note, don’t be surprised. The President, loved by millions of Americans and people throughout the world, despite what the liberal press wishes you to believe, enjoyed his special day with his loved ones, public and private.

Of course, it would have been quite the opposite if failed Democrat Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had won. The media would have shown Americans countless hours of how she celebrated from waking hours, cake, gifts, and well-wishes from celebrities and world leaders throughout the day. They even would have found former President Bill Clinton to join the occasion for a feel-good video clip to make the event that much more memorable.

Fine President Trump, humble, focused and dedicated to his job at hand, showed only on his Facebook home page homage to two other important notable anniversaries falling on this day: Flag Day and the United States Army.

{Editor’s Note: Regrettably, on this same day, a supporter of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who ran for the democrat nomination in 2016 challenging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, chose today to appear at a softball practice and randomly shoot the Republican Congress team and staff who were preparing for a game against their Democrat Congressional members for a charitable cause. Fortunately, no one died except the shooter from wounds after return fire from Capitol Police.}

UPDATE: Congressman Steve Scalise’s condition, after receiving a bullet in his hip, has become critical after the shooting but has now improved to the point he is out of danger. Three others who were injured are also expected to survive.

Sadly, Scalise  will need multiple surgeries for his status to regain a normal condition at best. Scalise, the elected five-term Congressman from Louisiana’s first district was visited by President Trump who told the press he is a true patriot and fighter. The lone Capitol security on hand bearing arms saved all on the field from potentially being killed or injured when he returned fire and brought the gunman down, while his two colleagues kept the shooter down. The gunman asked outside if those practicing were Republican or Democrat. Hearing they were Republican, he entered the field, took aim and started shooting.}

President Trump Gets Out of the Paris Accord

Written by Juliana Simone

This afternoon, President Donald J. Trump announced in the Rose Garden at the White House that the United States of America will be withdrawing from the Paris Accord. The agreement between 195 countries made in 2015 was to focus on ‘global warming’ and the effects that are believed to cause this among climate change advocates.

Under the preceding President’s authority, Barack Obama, America joined the Accord without a vote in Congress, which means President Trump can now get out of the agreement without a vote in Congress.

“We will start to negotiate and see if we can get a deal that’s fair. If we can’t that’s fine,” Trump said in his speech.

The President pointed out this deal leaves America and its workers at a disadvantage and holds it to an economic burden which amounts to a vast fortune. Trump said he cares deeply about the environment but this deal punishes the United States and allows some of the country’s biggest offenders to do whatever they wish.

Noting this blocks the development of clean coal in America, China and India would both be allowed to open multiple new plants, killing jobs and progress in the United States while granting these things to competitors. This agreement would make it very difficult to compete with the rest of the world, Trump said in his important speech.

President Trump declared his job was to “protect our country and our taxpayers.” He told the press and viewers that we won’t be closing up our factories or losing our jobs to give unfair economic advantages to others in the accord. He said the responsibilities need to be shared equally around the world and this ties up and bounds our country. “Until we do that, we’re out of the agreement,” he affirmed. “This is not going to happen while I’m President,” he assured.  He remarked how the United States of America has the highest standard of environmental protection.

Keeping another campaign promise to “Make America Great Again”, this decision was met with great enthusiasm by his millions of supporters in the U.S. and around the world, as well as America’s workers who would be greatly affected if the United States remained in this treaty as written.

There is debate as to the technicality of when America can actually withdraw from the accord, which varies from one to three years and whether it involves withdrawal from the United Nations Climate Program, as well.

The wife of United States President Donald J. Trump turned 47 today and could not be lovelier. The former model who has been married to Trump for twelve years after their wedding in January of 2005, began a relationship with the real estate mogul six years before his becoming the 45th President.

Born in Slovenia, once part of Yugoslavia, to hard working parents, the multilingual First Lady went on as a young adult to model in Milan and Paris before moving to New York City in 1996, where she became a cover model for many magazines.  The second First Lady to be foreign-born after the wife of John Quincy Adams (the sixth POTUS), she is the first to be a naturalized citizen of the United States.

The First Lady and The President of the United States have one son, Barron. He joins an extended family from Trump’s two previous marriages who all admire their father/ex-husband and participate in his positive goals for the future of this country. Americans rejoice in celebrating both Melania Trump on her birthday today and President Donald J. Trump for being a critical piece in making America great again.
