New Home Sales Rose in December

US-NK Summit

Last week President Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in a further attempt to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. Unfortunately, the two leaders were unable to reach an agreement. Fortunately, President Trump walked away instead of taking a bad deal. This will be a long negotiation on a very complex issue, but the roads to agreement remain open and the President seems to have a fairly good personal relationship with Kim Jong Un.


The Ocasio Cortez woman keeps flapping her pie-hole despite the nonsense she spews, it is remarkable to me that she hasn’t been physically removed from office and Washington.
The Democrats, because they have nothing else to offer the American people, have opened a slew of investigations into the president and those in his orbit. What a fine way for our elected officials to spend the taxpayer dollar. Don’t we have significantly more important issues to deal with than the left’s unquenchable thirst for power…and socialism? Meanwhile, Bill, Hillary, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Brennan, Clapper and all the rest, continue to walk free IN SPITE OF the overwhelming evidence of criminal activity perpetrated by them. It is such a misdirection of justice.

The un-acknowledged (by the Democrats) issue at the southern border: The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the US has set a new record for the number of illegal migrant families caught crossing the southern border over an entire year. It took just five months.

I have to believe anyone can clearly see that there is a huge problem with illegals crossing our southern border. Anyone with any clarity of mind also can see that the Democrat obstruction to a solution to this problem is purely political and a detriment to the USA and her citizens. How does anyone consider voting to put these self-serving creeps in office???

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….


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.

By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.


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.”
