September 11 Remembrance
Where were you? What were you doing on September 11, 2001? Today, 9/11/18, we offer a moment of silence to remember those brave American men and women who lost their lives or were injured in the cowardly terrorist attack perpetrated on the USA 17 years ago. God bless the fallen and the injured, the brave men and women of the fire and police departments, military and civilians who walked into danger, not away from it.
The news this week has been dominated by Hurricane Florence as she barrels towards the Carolinas. On Wednesday she was a CAT 4 hurricane. Today, Thursday, as she inches closer to landfall, expected later this evening, she has been downgraded to a CAT 2 hurricane (or is that now a tropical storm?). They are expecting 30″-40″ of rain with a 10-15′ storm surge from the roiling Atlantic Ocean. This is still not a lady to be ignored.
Disregard Pre-Election Polls
Here we go with the pre-election polls. DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THIS PROPAGANDA!!! They will stammer about the blue wave, they will lie about approval ratings, they will lie about how most people dislike the tax cuts, they dislike the direction the president is taking the country. All bullcrap. Remember what they said in 2016, Hillary was a shoe-in.
I believe the American people are much smarter than this. They see their wages rising, they see they have a good paying job, they see more of their money in their paychecks, they see a vibrant economy, their military being made the most awesome power on the planet, they see efforts to tame ILLEGAL immigration, they see that were it not for leftist resistance, immigration reform would already be done, the tax cuts would have been greater and we may have had an infrastructure bill… though currently, the economy is so strong that we do NOT have enough laborers to work the projects. Maybe next term…
Hurricane Maria Death Toll Debate
Jut an FYI, the accusations by the left that Trump is lying about the deaths resulting from Hurricane Maria are a total lie. These are Washington University computer model estimates of possible deaths resulting from such a storm. How do these self-serving, lying, cheating idiots get away with this crap? So frustrating. He will be accused of crucifying Jesus before the mid-terms (somewhat of a stretch, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least)
Infrastructure X (Keystone & Dakota pipelines) Regulation Reform XX 1 in 2 out

Destroy ISIS XX Extreme Vetting XX
Conservative Supreme Court nominees XX American Jobs XX
I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
