Meet the Designers Who Are Happy to Dress First Lady Melania Trump
11-30-16, Tommy Hilfiger said, “I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her. Ivanka is equally as beautiful and smart, although she wears her own clothes. I don't think people should become political about it." Diane von Furstenberg agreed, "Melania deserves the respect of any first lady before her."

Poll: Obama’s disapproval rating hits a new high
3-26-14, Wash Post -- The AP-GfK poll shows 59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama -- a point higher than the previous high set in December.
6-7-19, David Horowitz -- While you were sleeping, the Democrats (abetted by some deviant Republicans) have been working on a plan that would destroy the diversity of the American political system [allowing ALL voices in the USA to count in the presidential election]. The Dems plan The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, so far have fourteen blue states and the District of Columbia supporting it. This means they are 70% on the way to making their proposal the law of the land. [..snip]
The Founders of America had wisdom to put checks and balances on radical politicians. They were never more needed than now when the country is divided in a way that it has not been seen since the Civil War. Apparently out-of-touch and increasingly out-of-control Democrat Party wants to undermine the constitutional foundations of the nation, push a divisive agenda and move the nation towards a one-party state where only a few states decide who the president will be.

5-2-19, Recently a NY Times journalist who covered Watergate now lectures us; claiming Pres Trump is too boorish to be allowed to complete his constitutional term. It’s representative of what we’ve heard for two years from those who can't abide the results of the 2016 election. When the Dems continue to bemoan, rehash their monotonous carping about why Trump should be impeached - call their bluff: 'Fine do it! Put up or shut up!' Democrats want to impeach him, but won't because if he had a real trial in the Senate he would easily win it.
Woman stabs herself because she's sick of living in 'Trump's country'
6-6-19, A 32 yr old Florida woman took Trump Derangement Syndrome to an extreme level - she stabbed herself in the abdomen three times; she was found bleeding ... After evaluating the woman, a cop concluded that there was a “substantial likelihood” that she “will cause bodily harm to herself and/or others.” As a result, the officer appears to have recommended that the woman be involuntarily admitted to a mental health treatment facility (per the Florida’s Baker Act Law).
God's Holy Bible Is The U.S. Constitution's Foundation
Our Liberty Bell is inscribed:“Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”
6-5-19, * -- Almighty God Jehovah's word, the Holy Bible, is a covenant between God, the king and the people. God makes the laws; the king promises to obey and apply those laws; and the people pledge themselves to the Covenant. Out of this relationship between God, the king and the people, arises the peoples’ obligation to protest lawlessness on the part of the king.
Founding Father and educator Noah Webster said: “All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”
The English Puritans who came here in the 1630s knew that the Old Testament has a great deal to say about civil government. And they came to build that shining city on a hill. They did not come here to escape from the World, to wait for the end of the World, and to surrender it to evil. The USA became a shining city on a hill.
The fundamental act of our founding, the Declaration of Independence, recognizes the Creator God as the Source of rights; and acknowledges that the purpose of civil government is simply to “secure” the rights God gave us. We ratified the Constitution based on God’s model of civil government as set forth in the Holy Bible. That's why the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has been so much better than the rest of the world. For the most part, we followed God’s model for civil government; other countries didn’t.
- God is the Lawmaker – the kings are to apply His Law. Deuteronomy 17:18-20; 1 Kings 2:1-4
- The civil authorities promise to obey God's Higher Law. 2 Kings 11:17, 23:1-3; 1 Chronicles 11:1-3; 2 Chronicles 23:16; David’s covenant 2 Samuel 5:1-4
- Oaths of Office and rebuking 'kings' when they forsook God’s Law:
- Samuel rebuked King Saul (1 Samuel 13:10-14)
- Nathan rebuked King David (2 Samuel 12:1-14)
- Elijah rebuked King Ahab (1 Kings 16:29, 17:2, 18:16-20, 21:17-29)
- Elijah rebuked King Ahaziah (2 Kings 1:1-18)
- Elisha rebuked Jehoram, King of Israel (2 Kings 3:1-14)
- The prophets warned of the pending destruction of Jerusalem because of the sins of King Manasseh (2 Kings 21:10-16)
- John The Baptist rebuked Herod (Luke 3:19)
We The People must rebuke the federal government when it violates the US Constitution. The Peoples’ obligation is to obey the Civil Authorities; however it's conditioned upon the Civil Authorities obeying God's Higher Law. If the people do not rebuke and protest violations of God's Higher Law, He punishes the people because of the misdeeds of their "kings" – the people will suffer if acquiesce to unlawful acts.

D-Day 1944: Half Man & Half Boy = Soldier
6-6-19, * -- The average age of the military man is 19 years. He’s a tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by most half man and half boy. Not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He's a recent high school graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport, drives an old jalopy and has a steady girlfriend.
He’s 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was home because he’s working, training or fighting from dawn til dusk. He can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and – if he must - use either one effectively.
He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional. He can march until he is told to stop. He obeys orders instantly, but is not without spirit and dignity.
Beardless or not, he is no longer a boy. He’s the American Fighting Man that has kept this country - and others - free for over 200 years. Remember him always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his sacrifice, blood, suffering, sweat and tears.
Of all the gifts you could give a US military man, prayer is the very best one.
Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society. Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” (Article 34). Furthermore, Article 37 says foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” Clearly, Mexico’s immigration laws are far tougher than the United States. Yet its sanctimonious legislators will spin gullible American journalists about how they somehow hold the high road with regard to their immigration laws.
If anything, our Congress ought to adopt some of Mexico’s tough laws, with the hope that continued citizen pressure will push the next presidential administration to enforce them.
May 21, 2019 - Lawmakers clashed Tuesday over the Trump administration’s move to send hundreds of Transportation Security Administration employees to the U.S.-Mexico border, and one airport official warned it could lead to long checkpoint lines this summer. The Democrat chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, said shifting airport workers to the border was “the contrived manufacturing of a crisis to the detriment of the TSA.”
TSA to send employees to border to help immigration officials ...
5-15-19, The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) plans to send as many as 575 employees to the southern border to assist immigration officials ...
The event begins two days of D-Day anniversary observances as tribute to the troops who shaped history during the dangerous mission to reach beachheads and fight in German-occupied France.
President Trump read an excerpt of the prayer given on June 6, 1944 by President Franklin Roosevelt.
"My Fellow Americans:
Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.
And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:
Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph. They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest -- until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war. For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.
Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.
And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them -- help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.
Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.
Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces. And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.
And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment -- let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.
With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace -- a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil. Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen."
-- US President Franklin D. Roosevelt
3-12-19, FBI accuses wealthy parents, including celebrities Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, in college-entrance bribery scheme ... called it the largest-ever college admissions scam ...
5-28-19, NatlReview -- College Board’s new practice of assigning applicants an “adversity score” for students from poor or minority underprivileged backgrounds.... If advocates of affirmative action in college admissions couched their arguments entirely in that social-justice framework, I would find their position more respectable. But giving preferences to lower-achieving students is in no way compatible with a merit-based system. When college administrators favor lower-scoring applicants, with no evidence that their scores underestimate their future success on campus or in the broader world, they have prioritized redistribution over merit.
UK: Chants of “USA!” “USA!” Heard Over Bagpipes As President Trump's Motorcade Departed Buckingham Palace in England
6-4-19, Daily Mail -- President Trump appeared unconcerned by the protest plans, writing on Twitter last night: 'The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. 'Tremendous crowds of well-wishers and people that love our country. Haven't seen any protests yet, but I'm sure the Fake News will be working hard to find them.'
Prime Minister wannabe Jeremy Corbyn finished his speech to anti-Trump protesters, saying: [Obamaesque style] 'Together we can make a big difference, we can change this world... bring about that peace and justice. And by our demonstration here today, we've shown just how determined we, all of us, are to achieve that better place and that better world. Thank you for being here today, for peace, for justice and disarmament.'

170 guests were treated to a menu of:
- Steamed fillet of halibut with watercress mousse
- Asparagus spears and chervil sauce
- Saddle of new season Windsor lamb with herb stuffing
- Spring vegetables and port sauce
- Dessert was strawberry sable with lemon verbena cream
- Assorted fresh fruits, coffee and petit fours.
- Wine on offer included Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1990, wine from the Windsor Great Park vineyard and English quality sparkling wine. [President Trump never drinks alcohol; looks like they toasted with water.]
In 1947, she married Prince Philip [they are currently still married Philip is 97], Duke of Edinburgh, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, with whom she has four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
When her father died in February 1952, at age 26 she became head of the Commonwealth and queen regnant of seven independent Commonwealth countries: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon. She has reigned as a constitutional monarch through major political changes, such as devolution in the United Kingdom, Canadian patriation, and the decolonisation of Africa. Between 1956 and 1992, the number of her realms varied as territories gained independence and realms, including South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon (renamed Sri Lanka), became republics. Her many historic visits and meetings include a state visit to the Republic of Ireland and visits to or from five popes.

- When did the investigation into Trump and Russia start?
- Why did you not address the phony Steele dossier in your report?
- Why did you not look at any of the actions by the Hillary team who paid for and supplied the dossier?
- Who cleared the team for conflicts of interest since it was all Hillary supporters, lawyers and donors?
- What was the original crime that started the investigation and why was the scope so broad and outside of the Special Counsel mandate?
- Why did you withhold information from Flynn, Papadopoulos, etc?
- When did you release Strzok and Page?
- Why did you destroy the data on their phones so their text messages could not be shared with Congress?
Polarization in the World
"Of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
6-2-19, John Haller -- Abortion in America; flooding; tornadoes; immigration horrors; Middle East turmoil and more. At every level of society, both in America and worldwide, people are becoming polarized. In one sense, it may be a good thing in that even Jesus Himself warns against being "lukewarm." [Revelation 3:16; Jeremiah 30:6-7; Matthew 21:43-44] However, when sides are chosen, conflicts are sure to ensue.
We look at the many issues which find people having to choose sides, including the question of abortion rights (and the very revealing and eloquent commentary by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas) plus the heightening tensions in the Middle East; Jerusalem a burdensome stone [Zechariah 12:1].
We are either with Jesus or against Him.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3; Revelation 3:16; Jeremiah 30:6-7; Matthew 21:43-44; Zechariah 12:1
The Electoral College is one of those checks and balances that helps keep our Republic healthy protecting the less populated middle America states’ votes. If the ‘popular vote’ was all that was needed only California and New York need vote. The Democrat super delegates began in the 1980s to nudge along a nominee in the primary process who would be well equipped to win during the general election avoiding an unknown who would surely loose. [Didn’t work for Mrs Clinton though.] In 2016 there were appx 500 Dem super delegates; they are not bound to follow the will of the voters, nor are they required to stay true to the candidate they've pledged to support. Examples of super delegates: major elected official, including senators, members of the House, governors, leaders from each state's Democrat Party - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, President Bill Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden are super delegates, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
6-2-19, Newsmax· Chief of Staff Mulvaney said that Pres Trump is “deadly serious” about raising tariffs on Mexico to force a crackdown on illegal migrants flooding into the USA ... in the last 24 hours the Mexican president has already reached out and said he thinks they can do better, he thinks they will do better. Mexico has tremendously strong immigration laws, much stronger than ours. They have the ability to do things that we cannot. The US would impose the 5% tariff from June 10, 2019 and rise steadily to 25% until illegal immigration across the southern border was stopped.

And I tell you, many of them have a hatred for our country. My wife and I saw it again today: They have a hatred for God. It’s amazing. It’s disturbing to me.”
5-22-19, The abortion debate in America has been dominated by news that conservative lawmakers in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio and Missouri approved sweeping new restrictions to abortion. Yet "late-term abortions" are now legal in New York [and other states] where Gov. Andrew Cuomo - to a ghoulish cheering crowd - signed a new law legalizing killing an unborn child after 24 weeks of pregnancy.
In Nevada, legislation passed removing a series of guidelines where the state Assembly will overturn decades-old policies:
- requiring physicians to determine a woman’s age and marital status prior to performing an abortion.
- Supplying medication to induce an abortion without prior advice from a doctor
- No long required that women be told about “physical and emotional implications” that could possibly result from having an abortion More here

7-18-17, Maxine Waters lives far from the high-crime, high-gang area of South Central L.A. she was elected in 1991 to represent in a $4.3 million mansion between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. How did she afford the mansion on $170,000 annual salary? According to reports, Waters’ daughter, Karen, has been paid nearly $750,000 since 2006 to run 200,000 mailers seeking votes every time she’s up for reelection. Reportedly, Waters helped a bank, that her husband owned stock,secure federal bailout money after the 2008 market crash. If anyone needs to be investigated by the State Dept for illicit behavior, it’s Maxine Waters. No one really knows how she got to where she did or what she has ever accomplished; she feeds at the government trough while spewing hatred.
Spygate: Obama Admin Brennan, Clapper, Comey & the Dossier
Investigation into the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the salacious and unverified Steele 'dossier' on Candidate & President Donald Trump -- including whether Brennan perjured himself in public testimony about it. Recently Attorney General William Barr stated: “The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level... It was not handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counter intelligence activities are conducted....”
- In the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI; so secretive it functioned as a “sealed compartment” hidden even from the rest of the U.S. intelligence community; a unit whose workers were all made to sign additional non-disclosure forms.
- In August 2016 another layer of secrecy was added when the video feed from the White House Situation Room was cut off during the meetings. The feed - normally only for video and not audio - is usually kept on so that senior aides can see when a meeting takes place. The blacked-out screens were seen as an ominous sign among lower-level White House officials who were largely kept in the dark about the Russia deliberations even as they were tasked with generating options for retaliation against Moscow.
- They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers:”
- Specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their intelligence collection on Russia [fewer than 14 senior officials].
- Brennan, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA]
- James Clapper, United States Director of National Intelligence
- Loretta Lynch, Attorney General
- James Comey, Director of FBI
6. Agendas sent to Cabinet secretaries [arrived in envelopes that subordinates were not supposed to open]:
- John F. Kerry at the State Department
- Ashton B. Carter at the Pentagon
- Reportedly on May 15, 2019 it became public that Comey, Clapper and Brennan were feuding over Steele’s dossier and IC report. Who was responsible that it was to be utilized as evidence in the Russia collusion investigation. [Note: The dossier was produced by the controversial Fusion GPS firm and was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democrat Natl Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie Law Firm.
- Reportedly a former unnamed CIA official told Fox News [clearly defending Brennan] that it was Brennan and Clapper who opposed the push by Comey to include the dossier charges in the ICA.
- On May 15, 2019 Fox News, Martha MacCallum’s show former GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy said that “Comey has a better argument than Brennan, based on what I’ve seen.” [He also directed the investigators to look at emails from Dec 2016.]
- In May 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Comm. Brennan testified: “not in any way used as the basis for the intelligence community’s assessment” that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
- In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.”
- In Dec 2018, Comey outright contradicted Brennan’s testimony about the dossier before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees. He said that internally, the FBI referred to the dossier as “crown material.” Gowdy asked him: “So do you recall whether any quote, crown material or dossier material was included in the IC assessment?” Comey replied, “Yes.”
The Gateway Pundit reported:5-26-19, The report includes little mention of Anthony Weiner’s laptop emails other than to mention that a meeting was scheduled to get a search warrant to request the emails on October 27th, 2016. The emails were the suspected cause for Comey’s email to Congress on October 28th, 2016, announcing that the Hillary email scandal was being reopened. However, per text messages between Strzok and Page, the FBI knew about the emails in September 2016 and had sent a team to New York to review the emails at that time. [The Weiner emails may be what the Democrats are most fearful of being released to the public.] More here

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's killing in 2014 was exposed ... Operation Fast and Furious gun running operation. The US federal government under Obama & Eric Holder allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix Arizona USA. Members of a congressional committee at a public hearing blasted former Pres Obama and his attorney general Eric Holder for covering up their investigation.
