One of the most famous TV captures, during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, was an elevator containing Sen. Jeff Flake opening its doors as two women ambushed it keeping Senator Flake unmovable inside. They had heard him say he would vote for Judge Kavanaugh and yelled at him to not do so. Not asked politely, mind you, but yelled at him like savages. And why did nobody interfere?
This writer was fascinated how bold these women were to confront a United States Senator in his private space and talk so rudely to him. Of course, curiosity raised its inquiring head and armed with pencil and pad, this citizen journalist bounded out leaving the cape behind.
The two women, we learned, were Ana (editors don’t panic, only one “n”) Maria Archila accompanied by Maria Gallagher (a Spanish Irish Mix?) and they proved to be what this scribe suspected. They both are useful idiots on the payroll of George Soros.
When any disturbance to disrupt a procedure explodes, one can safely bet that George Soros and his money is the culprit behind the disruption.
So who ARE these women? Archila is the co-executive director for the Center for popular Democracy and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund,which is a George Soros organization to essentially destroy America. The organization is also identified as Big League Politics.
He has a couple hundred such organizations which are….tax free. Yep, we pay for Soros to set up his compounds in America designed to take over our country and put us all under his thumb. All these deceptively named organizations appear to be patriotic.
Archila’s partner in tandem, Gallagher, is also generously paid by Soros who is burning with the ambition to take America down, turn it into a Communist country with him becoming the potentate of the world.
Soros, who owns and runs the Democratic Party is experiencing the panic of his life. If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, all Soros’ dreams will turn to nightmares since America would become a stronger world force.
There has been enough written about Soros to show that he is the most evil man on earth. He can and should be arrested for Treason and Sedition. If President Trump would like to improve relationships with Russia, he could allow Russian soldiers to come, arrest Soros and take him back to Russia, that has an international warrant out for his arrest.
He is the individual who has agitated blacks against whites in anticipation of a big race war which would substantially weaken America. He is behind every riot bringing out the worst amongst all people. It is time for that to stop.
“CELEBRITY” KAVANAUGH PROTEST SCHEDULED
Numerous so-called stars plan a protest today, Thursday October 4th, against the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Headline seekers, Lena Dunham, John Legend, Amy Schumer, and Alicia Keys are among those scheduled. They are calling this protest #/CANCEL KAVANAUGH.”
It will be held outside the E Barrett Pretty-man Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C. around noon.
The organizers have stated that they will target the Senators who have not solidified their vote on Kavanaugh as of yet. Patriots should be welcome.
GOV. MOONBEAM SEZ NOT TO PREVENT SUICIDE BUT TO ASSIST IN IT!
The goof-ball governor of California just signed a bill. AB 282, stating that it is OK to aid, advise, or encourage people with suicidal thoughts. In other words, this is another twist on the law of euthanasia allowing those to be killed who do not want to be killed, according to Jim Kouri of NewsWithViews.
This bill would allow a doctor or nurse to “aid,” “advise,” and “encourage” you to take suicide pills. And this new law lets a relative, who could financially benefit from your death, to sign an order giving you suicide pills,” said Charles Finneman, a criminal psychologist with the American Federation of Police and Concern Citizens.
“Now the law in California says that it is okay to aid, advise, or encourage people with suicidal thoughts to actually go through with killing themselves,” according to officials with Life Legal, a nonpartisan, non-profit oversight group. “We refuse to stand idly by as California and the rest of the nation proceed down this deadly path.”
Today, the news of the world makes no sense. Things have become so screwy, that this writer is now going out for a long walk.

This piece is admittedly published with bias against the subject, Colin Kaepernick. This writer is a veteran who was hit with Mustard Gas during the Korean Conflict which left me with severe lifetime health issues including horrific constant pain that I live under to this day.
So to see millionaire football player Colin Kaepernick literally spitting on the American Flag, the flag I served under, and the flag that gave this black man the opportunity to become a wealthy football star, makes my blood boil.
Kaepernick gave $25,000 to the Center for Reproductive Rights, which carries out the slaughter of pre-born babies. This is the outfit who took part in the Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Rode Vs. Wade with the tag line: “Happy 40th Anniversary, Baby.” This is not only sick, it is depraved. How can anyone hate little babies that much?
Kaepernick gave another 25 grand to the Lower East Side Girl’s Club including $8000 for travel to Detroit to march with with radical pro-abortion women.
Birds of a Feather: Nike who recently announced that their new spokesperson would be Colin Kaepernick, gives matching grants to the nation’s biggest abortion chain.
He is able to do these things due to the money fans have given the ticket office to see him play with the NFL.
Here is what this rich black “persecuted” man has to say about America: “Radicalized oppression and dehumanization are woven into the fabric of our nation.” Really!
Oh yes, it has been reported that Kaepernick has a Muslim girlfriend and has himself become a Muslim. Figures.
This bag of trash should be railroaded out of the United States of America without delay.
Woman Pastor Pushes Abortion! What?
Over the centuries, continuous controversy has played out over women being ministers and pastors. One objection is that women are driven by emotions which cloud accurate biblical decisions, such as performing same-sex “marriages”. Others point to the Bible declaring that there is no place in the Bible showing that women should to be ordained.
Alicia Baker, an ordained minister from Indianapolis went to Washington, D.C. on September 7th (last Friday) to testify against the approval of Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.She bolstered her testimony by stating, now get this, ‘the Bible endorses forcing Christians to fund abortion drugs.’ How’s that again? What Bible is she reading??
Baker urged the Senate to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation because of his decision to grant religious exemptions to the Obamacare HHS mandate.
Ms. Baker remembers that In 2015, Kavanaugh sided with Priests for Life in its challenge of the Obamacare HHS mandate while serving on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. He said the government should not force religious employers to provide drugs and devices that may induce abortions.

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY
Alarmed by President Trump and galvanized by Russian interference in the 2016 election, Democratic alumni of the Central Intelligence Agency are challenging Republican incumbents from Virginia to Michigan and New York.
Abigail Spanberger spent eight years as an operations officer for the CIA, recruiting and developing spies, with a focus on counterterrorism. Before joining the agency, she worked in law enforcement for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service — targeting drug dealers and money laundering. In 2014, Spanberger left the agency and moved home to the Richmond suburb of Glen Allen, near where she and her husband grew up, to raise their three kids. The 38-year-old is now challenging Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), the Freedom Caucus leader who toppled then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a 2014 primary.
“There is a lot of concern among people living in our district about where we find ourselves on the international stage,” Spanberger said in an interview. “I believe very firmly that the United States of America is the world’s superpower, and we have a responsibility to be a stabilizing force.”
The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks happened during Elissa Slotkin’s first week living in New York City. She had just started her graduate studies at Columbia University. Because she was fluent in Arabic, the CIA recruited her to be a Middle East analyst and then deployed her to Baghdad. She served three tours in Iraq over five years. She left to become the director for Iraq policy on the National Security Council, moved to the State Department and finally the Pentagon. When Barack Obama left office in January, she was the acting assistant secretary of defense for international security. Now 41, she’s moved home to Michigan and is running against GOP Rep. Mike Bishop. She outraised him last quarter.
Making this a trend story: Jeff Beals, 40, spent four years as a CIA intelligence officer after graduating from Harvard in 1998. He moved to the State Department in 2002 and spent four years working on Middle East peace there. Now a high school history teacher in Woodstock, N.Y., he is one of several Democrats vying to take on GOP Rep. John Faso.
— A handful of other Democratic House candidates also have intelligence backgrounds, though not at the CIA. Patrick Ryan, one of the top-tier contenders to face Faso in New York’s Hudson Valley, served two combat tours in Iraq, including one as the lead intelligence officer for an infantry battalion in Mosul. After retiring as a captain, the West Point grad started a successful cybersecurity firm. “The thing being an intelligence officer taught me is that there is no simple answer that can be captured in 140 characters,” Ryan said in an interview. “I don’t think our commander in chief understands the complexity and the second- and third- order consequences of his decisions. … War has to be the last resort in all cases”
— Trump has antagonized the intelligence community by questioning the expertise and professionalism of employees at the various spy agencies. He has never fully accepted their conclusion that Vladimir Putin ordered a comprehensive cyber campaign to boost his campaign and sabotage the presidential election. “The whole Russia thing was an excuse for the Democrats losing the election,” Trump said again Monday during a news conference in the Rose Garden.
Shortly before taking office, Trump memorably compared the intelligence community he now oversees to Nazi Germany. The day after being inaugurated, Trump visited CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., and drew criticism for delivering self-referential remarks before a wall of stars memorializing fallen officers. Visiting Poland in July, the president said U.S. intelligence analysts were wrong about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction — so they could also be wrong again about the Russians. In March, Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government. Both refused.
Across the “deep state,” there are pockets of concern about the president’s fitness for office. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) spoke for many who cannot go on the record when he expressed fear that Trump’s behavior is setting the nation “on the path to World War III.”
— But the CIA prides itself on being independent and nonpartisan. People from across the ideological spectrum work there. “It is wholly unfortunate that the president — at least through his actions and words — isn’t appreciating what they do,” said Spanberger, who is running in Virginia. “At the end of the day, it’s a nonpartisan institution. To be a professional intelligence officer is really a unique path. They have a job to do: to serve the American people. So they just continue to do their jobs.”
Spanberger said what’s frustrated her the most this year has been when Trump and congressional Republicans make hasty decisions without having all the facts. Her mission at the CIA was to collect as much intelligence as possible so that policymakers could make more informed choices. “We’d ask ourselves: what information do we not have? What information are the analysts looking for? Then on the operations side, we’d look to figure out how to get that information,” she explained. “My role was to encourage people to take great risks so that our government could act wisely and make decisions based on that information.”
That’s one of the reasons that the House health-care debate really got her goat. “As a former CIA officer, the idea that the legislative body would put through a bill without so much as a CBO score was shocking to me,” Spanberger explained. “It runs antithetical to everything I believe in.”
— The former CIA officials, seeking elected office for the first time, are full of wisdom about how to deal with global hotspots, but they also understand that voters are primarily motivated by breadbasket issues. On the stump, each puts the heaviest emphasis on the economy and health care. That said, they’ve also discovered that — because the world is such a tinderbox right now — people are remarkably engaged on national security.
Back in Michigan, Slotkin said that she routinely gets asked about global events people read about in that day’s newspaper: “Businessmen ask me, ‘I have a trip coming up in Seoul. Should I cancel?’ Or, ‘My kid is supposed to study abroad in Asia. Should they go?’ People are concerned about the instability.”
— Because both women are challenging Republican incumbents and Trump won each district by 7 points last year, they are running as pragmatic moderates who are eager to work across the aisle.
“I am out there every day talking with Trump voters,” Slotkin said. “For the first two minutes of the conversation … they think I am a Republican because of my CIA and DOD experience. Then they ask what I am running as. I say I am running as a Midwestern Democrat and that I have worked for Democrats and Republicans proudly. People will then say they consider themselves independent. That’s Michigan.”
Each could be well positioned to ride a wave of backlash in the midterms — if it materializes. “There’s no doubt that former CIA officers and national security experts have strong records of service to our country and authentic messages that appeal to Democrats, independents and Republican voters alike,” said Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesman Tyler Law.
— Republicans note that all the Democratic candidates mentioned above need to make it through primaries, which could force them to the left. Spanberger, running against Brat, faces five other Democrats in a primary that won’t take place until next year.
GOP operatives expect they will probably wind up fielding a couple of candidates of their own who have intelligence backgrounds, though no one who has announced for 2018 yet has worked at the CIA. Andrew Grant, running against Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.), was a Marine Corps intelligence officer before working at the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Tex.), who is facing a tough reelection fight in a district carried by Hillary Clinton, is a former CIA agent who was stationed in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Two of his Democratic challengers have intel backgrounds. Gina Ortiz Jones is a former Air Force intelligence officer who deployed to Iraq and worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency. Jay Hulings was a staffer on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and worked as legislative director for retired Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.). Both of his parents were CIA agents.
— A cautionary tale: After nearly a decade in Langley as an analyst, Kevin Strouse was the Democratic nominee in 2014 against former congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.). But he lost. Shortly afterward, Strouse wrote a fascinating post for a blog called Overt Action about the pitfalls of running for office as a CIA alumnus:
“Many regarded my intelligence background with skepticism,” he recalled. “Some believed I had spent my time bombing people in Pakistan from unmanned aircraft, while others assumed that I had overthrown foreign governments. … In one instance I was presumed accountable for the Phoenix Program during the Vietnam War, an impressive feat since that effort preceded my birth by two decades. Also, I was constantly asked if I watched Homeland, if I liked Homeland, and if I was trying to ‘be’ Homeland …
“While very comfortable discussing foreign policy issues, I often knew things I could not discuss publicly,” he added. “Over the course of the campaign, media reporting surrounding the intelligence community often drove voter interest in the topic, and usually not in a good way. I was frequently asked about the Intelligence Community spying on American citizens after Edward Snowden began leaking classified information about NSA programs in June 2013. I also was often asked about the attack on the US diplomatic post in Benghazi…
“I also discovered very quickly that the skills required for being a top-notch Agency analyst are far different than what is necessary to be a successful Congressional candidate,” Strouse concluded. “CIA analytic briefings are usually dry and stuffy. They focus on data, nuance, and uncertain outcomes. Policy recommendations are a big no-no. Briefings are presented dispassionately. Suffice to say, the way CIA analysts are trained to give briefings and answer questions will not get people on their feet cheering. Voters expect their elected leaders to be definitive and show passion and convictions for their beliefs.”
— The former CIA officers who will be on the ballot in 2018 are preparing for the Russians to once again wage an influence campaign — and they expect that they will be targets. At the Pentagon last year, Slotkin was the lead negotiator with Moscow on the memorandum of understanding related to Syria. The goal was to make sure that U.S. aircraft could fly over that country without being shot down by the Russians. She said they secretly filmed her during one negotiating session and put the video on YouTube until the U.S. government complained. She routinely receives spearfishing emails and other notifications of attempted hacks.
“It’s quite a big concern,” she added in a recent interview. “We will be, of course, watching the Facebook ads that are put out, and we’ll do our best to monitor how they’re going to try to sow chaos in my election and probably many, many others. … If the Russians are really doing what we believe them to be doing, then I would be a choice target. They already know me, and they don’t love me. So we’ve done a lot of work to make sure that anyone associated with the campaign has gone through proper training for cybersecurity. Even the interns.”
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from the highest U.S. court, giving President Donald Trump another chance to fundamentally reshape the top of the judiciary.

Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, is in final talks to take over the post of White House communications director.
Fox News’ own White House reporter John Roberts took to Twitter to report the news on Wednesday.
The New York Times reported, based on sources, that Shine was offered the job by Trump.
Shine, a longtime executive at the network, served as its co-president for nearly 10 months after the ouster of longtime head Roger Ailes amidst a wave of sexual harassment allegations.
Shine, considered by many to be Ailes’ protege at the network, left Fox News himself in the wake of a network-wide housecleaning, but has denied wrongdoing in the handling of sexual harassment allegations.
Since leaving the network Shine has reportedly been in contention for a position in the White House. He has also spent much of his time, Politico reported, down at President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida along with mutual friend Sean Hannity.
The role of White House communications director has been a merry-go-round in the Trump administration. It was a position first held by the remarkably ill-equipped Sean Spicer, who passed it off to an invisible Mike Dubke, who was replaced — for eleven thrilling days — by brash New York financier Anthony Scaramucci. Hope Hicks served calmly in the position for the second half of 2017, until she left the job unfilled after her White House boyfriend found himself embroiled in a domestic abuse scandal.
As the conventional wisdom goes, Trump is his own communications director. But given Bill Shine’s stature as a longtime executive at Fox News, a network with close ties to the administration, he could prove to have staying power if he’s chosen for the job.
Mediaite has reached out to the White House for comment.

NEW YORK-Tuesday- 6/11/18…I would not watch the Tony Awards last night. First of all I have more to do than watch a bunch of ham actors and actresses patting each other on the back and telling the world how great they (we) are. Even the participants didn’t seem to know what they were there for.
Robert DeNiro, a wanna be mafia don, seemed to think he was there to advise us on Washington, D.C. politics, yelling out, “F…k Trump!” A phrase he repeated as the audience cheered and got to their feet. This writer saw the video today. Yep, standing ovation for insulting the man millions of people voted for to lead our country.
That event was supposed to be about Broadway with awards given to those who performed better than others. Not to publicly disrespect our president or to use disrespectful words.
We ask this valid question. Aren’t there strict laws in the books regarding public obscenity? There was at one time. Actors, like Mae West was jailed for using even slight vulgarity on the stage and in her movies. Lenny Bruce was arrested on the spot for saying the “F” word on stage at a club in New York.
This event bothered me for several reasons. As this is being written, President Donald Trump is in North Korea, meeting with Dictator Kim Jong Un a man who has threatened the entire world, including the U.S. with Nuclear destruction.
President Donald Trump is the first and only world leader to contact him and arrange a face to face meeting. Only he could have pulled that off. The meeting is in progress at this moment.
President Trump meeting with the North Korean Leader is absolutely a first. And if he accomplishes this peace accord, he must be given the Nobel Prize even though Obama received the Nobel Prize simply for being dumped–not elected–into The Oval Office. Another case of insanity politics.
And THIS is the man, our president, that DeNiro referred to from the stage, and seen by millions on television, using his typical filthy language to screech…
For Robert DeNiro to splatter out that obscenity in public is in itself criminal. This vulgarity was heard and seen by millions of people including children. Att: DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE in D.C., if possible, please take action against this low life for public obscenities. That law should still be on the books.
It was sad to see the magnificent Radio City Music Hall, a stage I have been on, become a receptacle for low life trash. Plus, there was a time when the acting profession was professional and the actors and actresses were ladies and gentlemen, carried dignity wherever they went, wore suits on personal appearances and on TV, were well-groomed, and never, never were heard using such obscene words.
Yes, there were real actors, real stars in those days. But now, unfortunately, Hollywood has become a cesspool of muck. We look forward to seeing the ratings of this abomination last night.
Broadway, at one time, offered the ultimate stage presentations. However the Broadway crowd is now the same. When Vice President Pence went to a theater to see “Hamilton,” in order to relax and enjoy a show with his family, those bastards went to the front of the stage and insulted our vice president. (Don’t panic, that is a Biblical word.)
If we were to wise up and stop spending our money to go to movies, or spend our time watching TV, stage and screen awards be given to these egomaniacs for pretending to be someone else, and spend time with our families, we would be much better off.

A dedication to irrationality grows more difficult to renounce with each reiteration of unreason, for the deluded must increasingly face the shame not only of his folly but the misery it begets. As the tally grows, the likelihood of self-correction diminishes; and the committed one-worlder, now chained to his oars, must insulate himself against both reality and countervailing opinion. He does so handily by demonizing those trying to restore him to sanity.
Melanie Phillips “The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth, and Power”
On one side you have the likes of Robert “Raging Bulls—t” De Niro, and his anti-American liberal sycophants wildly applauding De Niro’s most recent vulgar and infantile hissy fit aimed at President Trump. On the other side you have We the People, who increasingly allow such petulant pouting to go in one ear and out the other as we applaud the efforts of the best president America has seen since…well, forever it seems.
The media continues to preach its nonstop anti-Trump propaganda to an ever-shrinking choir, while the Democratic Party seems hellbent on throwing itself headfirst into absurdity and irrelevance.
As Melanie Phillips so insightfully points out, the globalist’s arrogance and ideological blinders leave them largely incapable of seeing anything outside their myopic tunnel-visioned delusions. They are lost in a self-made house of mirrors, reflecting back at themselves, through transference and projection, their own unlovely images – which they disassociate from and demonize as “Them.” To paraphrase Walt Kelly, they have met the enemy and he is them.
Their vision for America’s future has been reduced to “Resist!” and doubling down on dumb. They are no doubt extremely disappointed by President Trump’s historic and wildly successful meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. We the People on the other hand are elated. Congratulations President Trump – thank you!
Pray for all those in his administration to help Make America Great Again!

Geeze Louise, to listen to Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and a host of other fair-weather friends you would think that President Trump has started eating aborted fetuses for breakfast. Get a grip people, he signed a short-term Omnibus spending bill, he didn’t give away the keys to the kingdom.
President Trump remains in my opinion the greatest POTUS to come down the pike since the early days of the republic. I thank God every day that Trump is president, and consider America blessed indeed to have such an intelligent, street savvy, compassionate, stalwart, and courageous patriot at our helm.
How soon we forget. Do you have ANY idea what America would look like today if Hillary Clinton and the corrupt globalist cabal had won the presidential election? DO YOU REALLY? I seriously doubt any of the sunshine patriots and summer-time soldiers who are so quick to dismiss President Trump’s myriad and impressive accomplishments have any real grasp of how closely the USA came to being killed off for good in November of 2016.
In my article “Trickle-Down Trump” I mentioned that one of the qualities that President Trump possesses is a “an unflagging positive attitude.” The importance of such an attitude on our individual lives and the life of America as a whole cannot be overemphasized. The famed philosopher William James put it succinctly: “Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power!”
He expanded on this theme during a series of lectures he gave at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland during the fin de siecle of the 19th and 20th centuries.
The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful, it is mean and ugly. What can be more base and unworthy than the pining, puling, mumping mood, no matter by what outward ills it may have been engendered? What is more injurious to others? What less helpful to others as a way out of difficulty? It but fastens and perpetuates the trouble which occasioned it and increases the total evil of the situation. At all costs then, we ought to reduce the sway of that mood: we ought to scout it in ourselves and others, and never show it tolerance. But it is impossible to carry on this discipline in the subjective sphere without zealously emphasizing the brighter and minimizing the darker aspects of the objective sphere…. (italics added)
William James “The Varieties of Religious Experience” (p. 86, paperback)
So, lighten the f—k up and give President Trump some breathing room. Save you “pining, puling, mumping” moods for those who deserve it – say Congress.

Frequent contributor to this column, Laurence Craig sent us this note and portrait which affected this writer deeply, and included this note:
“I LOVE THIS PAINTING OF SIR DONALD OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND PATRIOT TRUMP PICKING UP OUR FLAG, HOLDING IT TO HIS HEART WITH SUPREME LOVE AND DETERMINATION ON HIS FACE, GENTLY WIPING THE SEDIMENT OF WAR FROM HER STARS AND STRIPES, SO SHE, WHILE WOUNDED, CAN CONTINUE TO BE OUR GALLANT SYMBOL OF LIBERTY, PRIDE AND FREEDOM AS WE THE PEOPLE UNITED WITH OUR PRESIDENT STRIVE TO DEFEAT THE PLAGUE OF COMMUNISM SEEKING TO ENGULF US AND ALL FUTURE GENERATIONS.”
Mr. Craig could not have described this painting better. I personally felt a lump in my own throat when seeing it, for the gratitude felt for Mr. Trump for putting his own wealthy life on hold to dive into the mess America has become due to a faulty steering wheel which he will fix. Embrace this portrait with your eyes and THINK. How fortunate that God sent him to us.
The gifted artist who created this image of President Trump, Jon McNaughton, was inspired by the NFL’s ugly protests against the American Flag when The National Anthem is played before their games, the flag under which they all became famous multimillionaires. Strange protests indeed. Nuts if one wishes to be precise.
This is what led portrait artist Jon McNaughton to place his subject in the middle of a football field, and titled the work, “Respect the Flag.” The love and respect President Trump’s face and body posture displays as he clutches the American Flag over his heart says it all.
The only protests against this portrait is from the Democrat-Communists which = Democoms.
Note: Prints of this painting can be purchased on McNaughton’s website.

A friend recently sent me an article concerning a couple of British city councils that will be handing out “gender pronoun badges” in celebration of “Trans Day of Visibility,” March 31.
Council and voluntary sector staff…will be “encouraged” to wear the badges, which include messages such as “My pronouns are she/her/hers” and “My pronouns are they/their/theirs” “…Some prefer to use other gender-neutral pronouns such as ‘xe’, ‘ze’, or ‘sie’”
Virginia Hale “Breitbart London”
I thought to myself “Yeah, well my ‘pronoun badge’ would read ‘F–K OFF, LIBERAL WANKERS!’” – but in polite sedate letters so as not to offend anyone (we are talking England after all).
Be that as it may – please excuse the sharp segue, but this article is not about gender badges, but the impact of President Trump on American culture as a whole. So, let me get started on that theme without any further ado.
It is commonly accepted that the demeanor, the personality, the aura, of America’s president trickles down to permeate their entire administration, and ultimately the rest of the country, to a greater or lesser extent. If that is indeed the case (and I believe it is) then how will “Trickle-down Trump” affect America – how is it already affecting America (and the world)?
Perhaps the most important thing that President Trump has done so far is to reinvigorate America’s sense of pride, power, and hope. That, coupled with his unflagging positive attitude, has trickled down, or radiated out, to permeate all of America – excepting those dark benighted corners where the MSM, academia, Never Trumpers, and the radical Left hang out.
We the People have long known that President Trump could find a cure for cancer, eradicate poverty, walk barefoot across the Potomac River, and the MSM and their brain-washed followers would find fault without fail – goes without saying. If you are so dim as to fall for their non-stop anti-Trump propaganda then more fool you.
Another aspect of President Trump’s personality that will have far-reaching effects on America’s culture, its zeitgeist, is his unapologetic masculinity. To the unmitigated horror of radical feminists and their ilk he is revitalizing, revamping, and reintroducing the concept of the manly man — the man of confidence, power, integrity, and action; leavened with humor and compassion.
Donald J. Trump is the greatest big-game player in American political history. Period. There is no second. None. Not in modern times. No one is even close. If you disagree, show us someone who has never run for office before, and watch him become the leader of the free world in spite of the media, some of the Republican establishment, and the Democratic Party all being against him.
Lewandowski, Bossie “Let Trump Be Trump” p. 203
“Old fashioned,” passe virtues such as honesty, decency, honor, courage, hard work, and commitment will seep back into America’s everyday vocabulary as our culture becomes reacquainted with their importance. Being of service to others will also reacquire its long-lost allure. The “secret” that wisely doing good is a shortcut to feeling good (wholesomely good) will be parlayed into personal and national improvement.
And President Trump is a spiritual man, a man of God. Which is all to the good in a country whose motto is “In God We Trust.” Granted, he is only human and has feet of clay, but who does not? A show of hands from those of you who are saintly and pure as the driven-snow? That’s what I thought. So, let’s not be so quick to throw stones at another’s lack of perfection.
Trump says what he means and means what he says. That, in and of itself, makes Trump a political oddity on a par with a total solar eclipse. Oh wait, he’s not a professional political parasite, is he? Well that explains that. With a bit of God’s grace, straight-shooting talk and minimal bulls—t will again become the coin of the realm in America.
I could go on in this vein for some time, but you get the idea. “Trickle-down Trump” will have far reaching positive effects throughout the United States, and eventually the world. Why I wouldn’t be surprised if such insidious nonsense as “gender badges” were soon relegated to the dustbin of history where they belong.

Never give in, never give in — never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) “Never Give In Speech” Harrow School, 1941
Never, ever, give up! …Demand the best from yourself and be totally unafraid to challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures. …Relish the opportunity to be an outsider. Embrace that label. Being an outsider is fine, embrace the label, because it’s the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference.
President Donald J. Trump “Commencement Speech” Liberty University 1917
If you support President Trump and have not yet seen the movie “Darkest Hour” permit me to suggest that you do so at the earliest opportunity. If you are anything like myself you will be struck by the similarities between the challenges faced by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the early days of WW II, and those faced by American President Donald Trump almost eighty years later.
The details of the challenges each man faced during their initial time in office of course differ greatly, but the general tone of political nastiness and waging an uphill battle…that is remarkably similar.
Churchill followed hard on the heels of Prime Minister Neville “Peace in Our Time” Chamberlain and his efforts to appease Adolph Hitler. Trump followed President Barack “Lead from Behind” Obama, who tried to appease…damn near everyone.
Winston Churchill confronted the eugenics and social engineering constructs of Hitler’s vile Nazi fascism. A British victory was far from certain in the early stages of the war – it was, in fact, highly unlikely. Nonetheless, failure was not an option.
But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Sir Winston Churchill “Their Finest Hour” speech, June 18, 1940
President Trump confronts a globalist vision that when stripped of its veneer of civility and bonhomie is every bit as power hungry, debased, and delusional as anything the Nazis planned. The globalists wish to destroy nation states – President Trump wants to make America great again. These desires and viewpoints are diametrically opposed.
Americanism, not Globalism, will be our credo.
Donald J. Trump “Acceptance Speech” July 21, 2016
Churchill faced the immense juggernaut of Hitler’s military might. President Trump faces the collectivist agenda of an entrenched, fanatical, ruthless, well-funded and prolific globalist elite (and their attendant useful idiots).
Both Trump and Churchill share the quality of being good men who know that they are not saints – and we know it too, and that’s okay, that’s more than okay. Leave sainthood to the saintly. When the times call for a courageous street fighter you don’t call on Mother Theresa.
Great Britain needed Churchill – especially during the dire early days of WW II — its lion to face off against Hitler and provide an inspiring roar. Likewise, some eighty years later, America needs its lion to roar the will of We the People in the face of the Machiavellian duplicity of our government and media, and share our outrage at the desecration of our beloved country.
In any event, if you have not yet seen “Darkest Hour” I recommend you check it out. Perhaps you will see the similarities between Prime Minister Churchill and President Trump that I do. In my opinion God blessed the United Kingdom with Churchill when they desperately needed him…and God has blessed America, indeed the world, with the light of President Trump during another dark and challenging time.

WASHINGTON,D.C.-1/30/18 There were more standing ovations at President Trumps’ State of The Union address tonight than any I have seen over the years.He hit the ball out of the park with every other line. The left side of the senate chambers were unresponsive.
Those weakly standing on that side, if at all, were the Communist Democrats with strained faces. They of course do not want people to be happy, prosperous, free or safe. That is not the communist way. Everyone MUST be directed in all activities doncha know.
Nancy Pelosi had such a scowl on her face that she must have been weaned on sour pickles. The man sitting next to her, had a face so long that I looked closely to see if there were any exit signs on it. They sat on their butts during the whole time and just stared, as did most of those in that section.
One line said by President Trump was so powerful that loud applause erupted, a communist on the left side started to stand and a man next to him grabbed him by the arm and pulled him back down to his seat. That was fully captured on camera and very telling.
The President laid out his plans for America bolstered by the incredible things he DID accomplish during his first year in office more than any new president in history. It was a positive, uplifting speech of hope, that covered every area of life today and ahead.
As the grumpy faces of the Democrat Communists remained glued, the audience cheered President Trump’s message. We could not help but wonder, how any group of people could not be happy of what our president has done already but what he promises for the future which will enrich our lives.
All those on the left side of the chambers’ floor, the Communist Democrats, were not happy. They do NOT want the people to be happy, enriched or prosperous since they want everyone to be in poverty with no freedoms including freedom of movement or traveling without their permission. That IS the Communist way.
The speech went an hour and 40 minutes with at least 40 standing ovations.
Then came the rebuttal to the speech by Joe Kennedy 3rd, the grandson of Bobby Kennedy. The speech was televised from Massachusetts. This was difficult for this writer since I am a cousin of that family. My great great aunt was the sister of Rose Kennedy.
It was the worst rebuttal speech ever given. He described Trump’s speech as depressing, a speech with no hope and he went on a rant declaring all the things that, due to Trump, were wrong with this country. He attacked Trump, yet he never addressed anything or quoted any lines from his talk that he could attack. It was just a blanket criticism with no clear definition of what he was yakking about.
Let’s begin to really analyze Trump’s speech since Kennedy stated on TV that the speech was depressing. NO IT WAS NOT! Indeed it was anything BUT that. The address President Trump made to the nation was indeed inspiring, motivating and FULL of hope for all of us.
The issues of today that bothered Joe Kennedy, were the very things Trump promised to correct. It was not a smorgasbord of confusion, suffering and loss of all freedoms as Kennedy suggested the world has been in since the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
It was a very dishonest, cunning, and downright stupid response. This is where the “divide” of our country has originated. On the left side of the aisle.
