Justice for Isreal 

I congratulate President Trump on taking action and recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. The Embassy being moved from Tel Aviv makes a bold statement. It demonstrates to the world that the United States will stand with our ally Israel. 
The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, as passed by both chambers of congress, instructed the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to be relocated to Jerusalem. It further provided that the US would officially recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. Passing the JEA seemed futile as every president since the act passed has ignored it. It remained unimplemented for over 20 years. 

President Trump made a promise during his campaign that he would take action on the JEA and make it happen. He delivered as promised. 

This gesture marks a massive milestone for relations between our two nations. Israel is one of Americas closest friends and it is an ally who has long been ignored. PM Netanyahu was ecstatic and grateful. He made a powerful statement 
The people of Israel will soon feel relief. This proclamation; although long over due, is welcomed and celebrated. I am profoundly grateful to President Trump for demonstrating bravery and fidelity. 

Watch PM Netanyahu respond:

Is Iran dangerous? 

President Trump announced that he intends to take decisive action to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. This comes as part of a broader strategy on dealing with Iran and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s known terrorist ties. 
Iran, under direction of Khamenei and in concert with the IRGC, has been involved in terrorism and anti-American excitement. The region poses a significant security threat to the United States and Israel. They are the largest state sponsor of terrorism and are destabilizing the region. 

Former President Obama acted sympathetically toward the regime, reduced sanctions and allowed for Iran to begin the process required to gain a nuclear weapon. Iran has made clear their intention to use said nuclear weapon on the United States and Israel. 

This affirmation, coupled with increasing aggression, should have caused the Obama Administration to intervene and take action. Sadly, President Obama responded by again reducing sanctions and making Irans goal more attainable. 

Senator Cotton (R-AR) recognized the dangerous path President Obama was paving for Iran and authored an open letter to the supreme leader. The letter was consigned by 46 sitting senators. Their statement was clear; the United States will not accept any deal that allows for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. The senator understood the threat that a nuclear Iran would pose to the world.

President Trump recognizes the United States shouldn’t be supporting any group that is hostile toward America or Israel. He worked with his national security team and developed a strategy that will prevent Iran from ever being able to acquire a nuclear weapon. Furthermore, it will produce strong restrictions on any military activities Iran wishes to carry out. 

Khamenei has been the Supreme Leader of Iran for over 30 years. In that time he has shaped the countries attitudes and behaviors to be distinctly anti-American. He has also fostered strong support for Assad and the regimes crimes against the Syrian people. Both have committed egregious human rights violations. 

The IRGC specializes in subverting international order. The IRGC has grown steadily in recent years and is not accountable to the Iranian people. They report to Khamenei directly. This allows them to carry out any mission they desire. Such actions include arming Assad and aiding him in butchering his own people. They supported his use of chemical weapons. 
This wanton conduct is reckless and demonstrates Irans ability to cause significant casualties to everyone in the international community. 

Aside from the dangers presented by the supreme leader and the IRGC Irans citizens are equally dangerous. Liberals love to sympathize with the the Iranian people and want to give them refugee status. They claim most Iranian people are peaceful. 

This is nonsense. There is a moderate faction in Iran; however, “moderates” are committing honor killings and chanting death to America in the streets. The hardliners, like the IRGC, are physically taking up arms against any westerners in the region and arbitrarily detaining them without cause. We need to look no further than our embassy in Tehran 1979 to know they are serious. 
There isn’t a peaceful majority of Iranians who are yearning to live in a judeo-christian society with western values. That group only exists in liberals minds. The Iranians are intent on engaging in acts of terror and anti-American excitement. Khamenei made sure to radicalize the country so they will follow his every command. Make no mistake- they have already made their intentions clear. They are protesting in the streets chanting about killing Americans and Israelis. Given the opportunity they would carry out those threats. 

Senator Cotton (R-AR) made a great point at his RNC Speech saying we need “A commander-in-chief who speaks of winning wars and not merely ending wars, calls the enemy by its name, and draws red lines carefully, but enforces them ruthlessly.” President Trump is that leader. He understands that Iran must be dealt with appropriately. We should always try to avoid military intervention; however, if needed we can and must use military force to ensure Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon. The safety of the United States and Israel depends on Iran lacking nuclear weapons. President Trump demonstrated that he understands this threat and is going to do everything in his power to stop Iran and protect the United States and our allies. 

Democrats are racist! 

The liberal left is continuing to insult President Trump and claim he is racist. The entire conservative base has been dealing with this frivolous claim recently but President Trump seems to be the MSM’s favorite target. They are playing clips of him helping with disaster relief in Puerto Rico and claiming he doesn’t care. Simple logic check- if he didn’t care he wouldn’t be on the ground providing relief work. He wouldn’t be helping families rebuild. It is obvious he cares for these Americans deeply and wants to help them get their lives back on track. 

Late show hosts, celebrities and liberal elites are attempting to disgrace President Trump by calling him Racist while he’s the only one with boots on the ground helping. They are spewing this nonsense from their Hollywood mansions while our President is doing manual labor to aid Americans who need his help. The President provided substantial aid to Puerto Rico and is working with FEMA and congress to develop strategies to strengthen the island. The idea that he isn’t helping Puerto Rico because of their skin color is absurd. 

We know that the left prefers feelings to fact and often espouses claims with no factual basis. Conservatives are often subjected to these juvenile tactics. When we respond with an actual policy position supported by statistics and facts we are promptly attacked. These attacks are carried out by the liberal base and usually involve little to no evidence. Frequently it’s some form of a pre-coined phrase accompanied by fake outrage. 

The left has been calling President Trump and other Conservatives like myself Racist recently. Since they have been throwing around this nonsense on a daily basis I think it’s only fair to respond. Let’s take a closer look at which party is actually racist. 

The Democratic Party loves to pretend they are champions of civil rights. They claim that black Americans must identify as democrat because republicans are inherently racist. This isn’t the case though. Since the democratic party was founded in 1829 they have fought against every piece of civil rights legislation. 

President Lyndon Johnson summed up the democrats position “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for 200 years.” The democrats don’t truly care about advancing the quality of life for African Americans- they simply care about advancing their own agenda. This was true throughout history and it’s true today. 

The Republican Party was founded as an anti-slavery party. From our inception we have been fervently opposed to racism and slavery. The first republican President, Abraham Lincoln, died in this pursuit. The emancipation proclamation let the world know the GOP wouldn’t stand for racism…. and President Lincoln was shot because of it. John Wilkes Booth, a democrat, assassinated Lincoln in hopes of preserving slavery. Democrats literally killed to protect slavery. 

The democrats founded the klu klux klan and supported their agenda within every level of government. Nathan Bedford Forrest, a prominent founding figure in the KKK was friends with President Woodrow Wilson. Wilson, a democrat, even promoted the 1915 KKK propaganda video “The Clansman” by screening it in the White House. He Re-segregated many federal agencies and he used the KKK to attempt to scare and intimidate folks into following him. 

Democrats had a clear mission- to keep the south segregated and enslaved. 

In 1857 when the US Supreme Court heard Dred Scott V. Sandford they ruled that slaves aren’t citizens, and must not be considered citizens. They are property. The Supreme Court voted 7-2. All 7 justices to support slavery were democrats. The 2 justices to dissent and want to abolish slavery were both republicans. 

-Democrats opposed the 13th Amendment 
To abolish slavery. 

-Democrats opposed the 14th Amendment 

Giving citizenship to blacks. 

-Democrats opposed the 15th Amendment 

giving voting rights to blacks. 

These Amendments only passed because of universal republican support. 

By the year 1900 over 22 black congressman had been elected to the US House as republicans and were fighting for equality and human rights. The democrats didn’t have a single black congressman at this time. In fact, they wouldn’t elect a black man to congress until 1935. 

It was evident that their strategy of keeping blacks enslaved and therefore unable to vote wasn’t going to work. That’s when President Lyndon Johnson summed up the democrats position “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for 200 years.” The democrats suddenly decided that if blacks were going to vote then they should at least vote for democrats. 
Democrats, ignoring the facts, will likely continue to attack conservatives and President Trump for being racist. It is nonsense. We have been steadfast in our support of civil rights. Our facts are strong. Their feelings are weak. Don’t bring a feeling to a fact fight friends. You’ll loose every time. 

Republicans aren’t racist. Democrats are.

Bi-partisanship isn’t lunacy

Bi-partisanship isn’t lunacy. Democrats and republicans have many ideological differences. Those differences are representative of the vast sea of political opinions held by Americans across the country. We shouldn’t be attacking fellow conservatives for attempting to reach across the aisle and work with our liberal counterparts. In the words of President Lincoln “We are not enemies, but friends … though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.”
I fundamentally disagree with democrats on practically every issue; yet I never forget they are Americans too. I know most of them have seriously held beliefs and they deserve to be part of the discussion. That is the purpose of political discourse. I want to hear their ideas and thoughts and I want to share mine.
The hope is that after meaningful discussions we can forge a solution that works for both parties.

I am glad President Trump sat down with congressional democrats and made a deal. I am proud to have a President who isn’t afraid to reach into the liberals stronghold and try to get governance done. Perhaps we can work on strengthening our 2nd amendment protections next…..

Hurricane Harvey

President Trump spent significant time assisting Americans in need that were affected by hurricane Harvey. This hurricane has ruined lives and caused
catastrophic damage to the area.

He used every power of his office to dispatch federal workers and agencies to help the community. In addition to doing everything he could as POTUS, President Trump and family spent significant time in the damaged area physically providing aid themselves to the displaced victims. Moreover, President Trump donated 1-million dollars of his own money to further help the community.

I am immensely proud of President Trump. He handled this tragedy the best he could. Those Americans affected by the weather are undoubtedly in a better position as a direct result of President Trumps plan and his excessive generosity.

As usual the MSM is taking airtime to attempt to incriminate President Trump. These left wing news outlets would rather traffic in deception and propagate libel then to produce a genuine story. The most trusted man in America, Walter Cronkite, would be despondent if he were witnessing the actions of the MSM today. “And that’s the way it is” according to Cronkite.

A look at DACA from our founding fathers viewpoint

Our founding fathers designed our government to be a system of checks and balances. They were terrified of any one branch, or any one person, having too much power. Lord Acton shared this mindset by saying “absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Our constitutional framework was created in a brilliant fashion and it allows for each branch of the government to exercise certain powers over another. This is not a redundancy; this is a fluid idea that is alive today.

For proof of this we need to look no further than President Trumps decision to end the Obama Executive Order called “DACA” or deferred action for childhood arrivals.

President Trump has faced a tremendous amount of negative press for making a decision that should be praised. Before y’all burn me in effigy; hear me out.

For just a moment I want to remove the substance of the executive order and look independently at what President Trump did. He reviewed an Obama era executive order. He determined that this executive order was written in a direct attempt to circumvent the entire legislative process. This is precisely the type of action our founding fathers feared.

The DACA executive order must be undone. This executive order is actually hurting the “dreamers” as well as many American citizens. We can’t allow these individuals to live in perpetuity. President Trump realizes that his best option is to allow congress to weigh in and find a solution to the problem. I believe he made an outstanding decision. He is addressing the problem of DACA by properly submitting it to congress so they will be able to legislate a solution. Once this is done the dreamers will have closure and a legal process to pursue should they want American citizenship.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said “If President Trump chooses to cancel the DACA program and give Congress six months to find a legislative solution, I will be supportive of such a position.” Senator Graham is joined by a bipartisan effort to find a legislative solution to this problem.

I think it’s important to recognize the selfless decision President Trump made. He realized that DACA was a poorly written order and couldn’t survive. It was hurting America. He made the decision to end the executive order but he wanted to make sure America was in the best possible position to handle this change. He is asking congress to legislate a solution and giving them six months to get it done. I applaud President Trump and this incredibly well thought out plan. This is precisely what our founding fathers wanted.

Now is the time to contact your representatives and make your voice heard. Call your congressman and explain your feelings on the issue. Remember- representative government only works when citizens are engaged.

The unspoken truth of President Trump

President Trump has been involved in philanthropy since he was a young man. Anyone who has spent time in New York City knows that President Trump is no stranger to charity events. From police balls to domestic violence charities, his generosity is unmatched.

During the campaign, then candidate Trump, floated the idea that he wanted to make better use of his presidential salary. At that point, specifics were unclear. However, we knew that he was not going to accept the paycheck. Those of us who were early members of Team-Trump recognized that he was not running for the Presidency for the normal reasons. He did not desire the fame or power of the office; rather, he had a genuine interest in making America great again.

As time progressed, we began doing research on the technical details of exactly how we could make better use of his presidential salary. The determination was made that the president cannot merely refuse his salary. He must accept the paycheck. He is, however, free to spend the money in any way he sees fit as it is his salary.

President Trump decided that because he was required to accept the salary, he would simply donate 100% of it to charity. President Trump received his first paycheck in April for approximately $78,333.00. He immediately wrote a donation check, for the full amount, payable to the National Park Service. In July, President Trump received his second paycheck for approximately $100,000.00. He immediately drafted a donation check. This time he donated the full amount to the Department of Education.

No president in modern history has donated his entire salary to charity. President Trump’s actions speak volumes about his character. These acts should clarify to the public what Trump insiders have known since before nominating him: President Trump is a warm and caring man who has morals that are beyond reproach. He has a genuine desire to correct the many issues plaguing our nation. He cares deeply for all Americans.

Perhaps more telling than his salary donations, President Trump has committed to donate one million dollars of his own money to aid relief efforts for those affected by hurricane Harvey. He made every possible support effort he could as president. He activated FEMA, sent federal resources, and provided emergency assistance. President Trump spent time walking the areas destroyed by the storm and comforting those who lost everything. He knew that these Americans were going to struggle to rebuild their lives. His personal donation is a testament to his commitments to the American people.

Despite his generosity and goodwill, the media is still launching a barrage of character attacks on President Trump. His actions should speak louder than their words! Americans must look past the mainstream news outlets that are spreading hateful propaganda in an attempt to delegitimize a truly outstanding man.
