US job growth slowed in April

US job growth slowed in April to 160,000, a sign employers may be turning cautious after the economy slowed early in the year. The (false) unemployment rate remained at 5%.

US Navy Seal Heroism

A US service member of the Navy Seals was killed helping Kurdish fighters near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul by Islamic state forces on Tuesday. Last week they beheaded a Canadian hostage. Have we not had enough of these rats yet? Just ridiculous. Never hear a word from the president or the State Department regarding the loss of either one of these people. The Navy Seal was for sure an American hero and I suspect the Canadian who lost his life is considered a hero in his country.

The Presumptive Republican Nominee Emerges

Donald Trump handily won the Indiana state primary on Tuesday, forcing Ted Cruz to suspend his campaign. Wonder boy, John Kasich, who has been victorious in ONE primary out of 41, continues to delude himself into thinking he’s got a shot. Do you see what the possibility of power does to people? He is on a titanic ego trip, enjoying as much of the limelight as he can, but it is all for naught. The Titanic sank…and so will John Kasich. The presidency is just not in the cards for him at this time.

I like Kasich, he has done well for Ohio, and he did well in Washington and likely has a solid political future. It IS time now my friends, to rally around the front runner of the Republican Party, for the bigger battle lies ahead. Hillary MUST be defeated in November by a united and strong GOP.

What a switch, came out of the gym Wednesday to the news that Mr. Kasich has suspended his presidential campaign. It’s a good move for everyone involved. Vice President? The possibility is already out there on social media.


We are going to put a lot of coal miners and mining companies out of business…”

Hillary Clinton

Her statement is easy to find on social media and yet Crooked Hillary has the audacity to refute her own statement as taken out of context. What bullcrap! NEVER HILLARY

S.I. Transgender Cover Girl

Just heard that Sports Illustrated is going to have an upcoming cover with a semi-nude photo of that thing, whatever it is, Caitlyn Jenner. It will be partially covered by an American flag and wearing its gold Olympic medal. What a disgusting display.

I am very disappointed at the lies being said about Donald Trump and I am going to continue to rail against them.

Trump is NOT a racist. There is not ONE bit of evidence to substantiate this. Those who know him personally also reject these lies. More lies by the left to gain the black vote. You know what? People will be surprised at the support he gets from African Americans, they are not stupid, and they see what has and has not been done to them and for them in the past and especially in the past 8 years.

We elect the first African American as president, he has a golden opportunity to help them and yet, they are WORSE off today than they were 8 years ago. Chicago has been a democrat stronghold for generations. It also has among the strictest gun control laws in the country yet it is like the wild wild west in black neighborhoods- every day and every night. Look at Detroit, kids cannot get a decent education there, the teachers unions have seen to that. The city was bankrupted by liberal administrations, took years but they managed to ruin it for the people.

Trump is NOT anti-immigrant. Trump IS against people coming here illegally, taking jobs from our citizens, taking our money from the government. Get in line, come here legally. You are welcome in the United States. Any American would agree with this unless you are a politician pandering to gain votes.

Trump does not hate women, he loves women. Hillary desperately needs women to support her so she continues to spew her lies and the liberal media is more than happy to do it for her. Fact is, many, many women do not like Hillary and it is likely they will not vote for her.

Trump does not hate Muslims, he does hate Islamist terrorists. So do I. Trump wants to stop the flow of Muslim immigrants UNTIL we have a way to properly vet them. We all know there are terrorists aplenty out there who want to destroy us and all those who are not Muslim. It is wise and prudent then, when you know it is likely terrorists will try (and succeed) to get in here to do our best to stop them.



Have a great weekend…. God bless America!

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.

If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.

Remember these tidbits as the election cycle grinds on:

  • Fast & Furious-Americans killed by guns supplied to the drug cartels…by the Department of Justice-Eric Holder presiding. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
  • Benghazi: Four Americans killed in an assault described as the result of a viral video. This was proved to be a false narrative. This was in fact, a planned act of terror. The president was clueless. No one even knows where he was as this went down. No one held accountable
  • “At this point, what difference does it make?” Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State
  • The IRS targeting of conservative groups and individuals. No one held accountable, Lois Lerner is on paid vacation and has refused to testify. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
  • Hillary using a private server for correspondence during her term as Secretary of State against the orders of the president. She thought “it would be more convenient…” Though the records were due when she left office, they were not submitted, subpoenas were issued, which she ignored for two years. Finally, she released 30,000 of some 60,000 alleged emails then she deleted the rest of the emails and will NOT turn over the server for investigation.
