The People’s President

I’ve noticed something about President Trump when he is with “regular people“. They seem to be completely at ease with hugging or touching him. That’s something we don’t often see with our presidents although Bush 43 seemed to get hugs on certain occasions. I’m sure in person President Trump must be a formidable presence when he walks into a room. Not only is he tall but he oozes power. One would think that would deter a feeling of closeness with him. However, I’ve heard people say that in person he’s very compelling, making people feel as if he’s truly interested in them. I suspect that was a major reason he was elected. He was “one of us”, using the kind of language we use. Hillary wasn’t capable of connecting with ordinary people in that way.

Recently President Trump held a bill-signing ceremony for the RIGHT-TO-TRY bill. This will give terminally ill people the option to try treatments that have not yet been approved by the FDA. At that ceremony was an adorable little boy with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. His actions during the bill signing were absolutely precious as he attempted to get a hug from the President.

During his recognition of an NYPD slain officer, Miosotis Familia, he invited the family to come to the podium. The touching image came when the officer’s Mother hugged the President as he held her hand while still speaking. Such a tender moment.

The President seems ever aware of the people near his “entourage” but not a part of it. In this video he being directed to his car but instead took a brief time to greet the law enforcement officers providing security. To this President, they aren’t just fixtures but REAL people who perform an important job AND who he wants to thank. Imagine how special that made them feel!

And of course, we all remember when the President stopped to retrieve a Marine One guard’s hat that had been blown off by strong winds. Even though the hat blew away again, in true Marine fashion, the guard never moved or cracked a smile.

The next time there is one of the President’s famous rallies, watch how people react to him. How they speak out during his speech, how they try to touch him, and how often they shout out “we love you”. The Democrats are at a loss to understand what the rest of America knows and loves.

No Blue Wave in Ohio

Political Party logos
The Democrats have been saying they are going to have a BLUE WAVE in Nov 2018. Meaning they believe they will take over control of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Their plans are that IF they do that, they will Impeach President Trump and kill President Trump’s tax cuts in order to RAISE OUR TAXES! A few months ago in generic ballot polls, it appeared they might be successful. They had a substantial lead over a generic Republican. However, with all of President Trump’s successes, that lead is now down to only 3 points. Obviously the American voter isn’t as dumb as the Democrats think we are.

The results of Ohio’s recent primary indicates there is no BLUE WAVE in Ohio. I heard it reported that around 200,000 more GOP voters went to the polls than Democrat voters.

In the race for Ohio Governor there were 827,039 GOP votes vs only 679,738 Democrat votes. That’s 21.6% more GOP votes. Mike DeWine (R) received 17% more votes – 494,766 votes than Richard Cordray’s (D) 423,264. Another big race was for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sherrod Brown (D). Brown is a far left-wing Dem leaning toward Bernie Sanders Socialism. In November, Brown will be challenged by Rep Jim Renacci (R) who achieved 360,475 votes of the total 760,808 cast by GOP voters.

If this enthusiasm continues until November, Ohio is apt to maintain a GOP Governor and pick up a U.S. Senate seat. We really need Renacci to win to help President Trump implement more of his programs.

The Faces of the Democrat Party

The Democrats have lost their friggin’ minds. They have been unable to accept that Hillary lost in spite of all the illegal attempts to ensure her victory. Even though we suspected they tried to rig the election, we’re now beginning to learn the true extent of their corruption. Faces of Democrat Party

Their behavior during the State of the Union speech was atrocious! No doubt many Republicans will use those dreadful pics in their ads against their Democrat opponent. Many jokes were made on Twitter about Nancy Pelosi’s strange mouth movements. Every time there was an opportunity to applaud, Nancy looked around at fellow Dems to make sure all were following orders to not applaud. (Gotta keep ’em on the plantation) Some Dems actually booed when President Trump began his recognition of the two families who lost their daughters to the vicious MS-13 gang members. When President Trump touted the new lower black unemployment rate, the Congressional Black Caucus sat stone-faced. There is a telling video of Joe Manchin (D-WV) beginning to stand while starting to clap until he saw Chuck Schumer’s evil eye from the end of the row. Joe sat back down. At one point, the audience began the familiar USA – USA – USA chant. When that began Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) left his seat and hurriedly stomped out!

No one knows what the Democrats’ vision for America is. They’ve moved so far left that they seem to be adopting Bernie Sanders’ form of Socialism with Big Government. FREE STUFF for everyone – paid for by Papa Gov’t. An ideology where everyone becomes poor – like Venezuela! Other than that, it seems the Dems platform will be “Russia-Russia-Russia” and “we don’t like Trump“!

Dems have a low opinion of Americans. Hillary called Trump Supporters “DEPLORABLES“. Very rich Nancy says our $1000 bonuses are “CRUMBS“. Adam Schiff (D-CA) says we’re NOT SMART ENOUGH to understand a memo. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said his #1 priority is to illegal Dreamers! Guess he forgot that he took an oath to support/protect Americans.

Hillary’s loss stopped the Dem (Soros) plan for NWO and Globalism. Obama was put in place to begin the destruction of America. Hillary was to win to put the final 8 years in place. Not sure who put together this chart but this was their 16-year plan:

Americans voted for Trump to stop the destruction. That’s why MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN resonated with middle America, the Patriots, the hard workers, the Faithful … or as Obama called us “the clingers”.

A Look Back at 2017

2017 was an interesting year. Mostly it was a good year, but there were a few ‘bad’ things. I’ll start with the bad first. Both my home and my Jeep are now 20 years old, so it’s been a year of rather costly maintenance on both. Water heater, large maple tree removed, fence repair, exterior trim painting, new fridge, some new faucets, etc. Typical homeowner expenses.

The good news is Murph is 13 yrs old and I’m grateful to still have him. He’s a little deaf and moves more slowly but he still has spirit and is unbelievably spoiled. Another granddaughter got married so my family increased by ONE. I still have great neighbors who sometimes help me with projects or scold me when they see me doing something they think I shouldn’t – like climbing ladders! And of course, I’m so thankful for my loving family!

I’m also glad we have a President who is working for the people and America. He’s eliminated many, many regulations that made it difficult and costly for businesses. He’s working to secure our borders and deporting illegals who commit crimes. ISIS has almost been decimated. He’s installed dozens of Constitutional Judges to rule based on law, not progressive activism. Starting in 2018 we’ll get tax cuts for Americans and Corporations which will infuse money into the economy to grow it. Anyone with a 401K or pension fund benefitted from the skyrocketing stock market. Best of all is a direction to consider America First rather than globalism and the New World Order concept. Now if Obama and Hillary would just go away, life would be good.

I’m excited about 2018 and what new exciting things it will bring.

The National Anthem explained …

Currently the NFL is disrespecting the American Flag and the National Anthem. Someone posted this YouTube video on Twitter with a suggestion that the football players should be reminded why we revere the Flag and memorialize all the Americans who have died to protect the Freedoms we enjoy – unlike any other country.

Those of us who are older studied American History in high school. I’m not sure they’re teaching it anymore. This vid is a good refresher course for us and a good lesson for younger people. It reminds us why we stand for the National Anthem and put our right hand over our heart.

One quote in the video is from George Washington. I think it is appropriate given what the overpaid football players are doing.

“The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the World is he will die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees.”

Most Patriots will get misty eyes as they watch the video. It makes us proud of this GREAT COUNTRY. If you’re not affected by the vid perhaps you might find another country more to your liking. As we use to say Love It or Leave It!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Finally … the Election is OVER!

Well the election is over! Thank goodness! I guess I’m OK with the outcome because I really, really did not want Hillary as President. Too corrupt, too many issues and I remember all the scandals when Bubba was in office. Didn’t want to go through that again.

The Democrats and some snowflakes – who didn’t vote – are having serious issues accepting the results. First they cried – then they protested – then they went into denial. The Mainstream Media were as bad as the Democrats – because they ARE Democrats. Conservatives weren’t happy that Obama won but we accepted the results and behaved as grown-ups.

Trump won the Electoral College votes by a very wide margin, securing 306 EC Votes. However, he won a vast amount of the counties in America. As this map shows, Democrats are the party of the coasts and some major cities. The flyover states that Dems typically look down upon, gave the presidency to Trump. The map below was posted on Twitter and soon went viral.

I’m not sure how successful Donald Trump will be as a President but so far things seem OK. The stock market is up because investors believe his business-friendly plans should spur growth. People’s optimism is noticeable. The people selected to be in his Cabinet so far seem to be good choices. World leaders have called him, hoping to work with him. Since many didn’t like or respect Obama it is encouraging that apparently the leaders view him as a force to contend with. Companies are already making pronouncements that they are considering bringing some of their jobs back to U.S. Lower taxes and fewer job-killing regulations will be critical to these jobs actually returning. Undoing all of Obama’s damage will be a daunting task but since much of his damage was caused by his hundreds of Executive Orders, President Trump can undo them all with a swipe of a pen. It’s very good that the GOP has majorities in both the House and the Senate.

For America’s sake, I pray President Trump will be a good POTUS – as President Reagan was.
