Happy Veterans Day – One Year Since President Trump’s Victory! @realDonaldTrump

Happy Veterans Day – One Year Since President Trump’s Victory! @realDonaldTrump

First and foremost, happy Veterans Day to all my fellow Vets! It has been an honor and privilege getting to know so many great brothers and sisters over the past 18 months. Veterans Day coincides closely with Election Day.

I did an interview for the one year anniversary of President Trump’s Victory. The interview took around 90 minutes. When it was edited the actual video time was less than 2 minutes for questions and answers. This is standard. Even with the edits, I believe they were fair.

I shared it with some friends on Facebook. A liberal friend commented back to me:

I don’t support him in any way, but I’m glad you can find comfort in him.

That really hit me and gave me more insight into the difference between the left and the center. I have been told I’m a Centrist so I will proudly wear the title. I’ve always joked I’m part of the Alt-Center. However, I digress. The left looks for “comfort” in a leader. At least that is what my liberal friend must have assumed.

Can you imagine any veteran looking to their leadership for comfort? No, we look for our commanders to put the mission first. That goes nicely with President Trump’s theme Make America Great Again. That is his mission, America First.

On Veterans Day we are reminded of who we are. If you fought overseas you were not looking for “comfort” from your commanders.You were looking for direction that produced results with minimum casualties. I believe this is one of the main reasons the vast majority of veterans support President Trump. He is result oriented.

Where are the results? I knew he would never build a wall and have Mexico pay for it, repeal and replace Obamacare, simplify the tax code and reduce taxes or rebuild our crumbling infrastructure without help from Congress. Apart from Executive Orders, a President can only try to move Congress in the right direction. The results are there if you look at what President Trump has done.

President Trump is undoing the burdensome Executive Orders put in place by President Obama. He is responsible for the largest increase in the stock market since 1933, which helps everyone with a retirement account. America’s GDP is up in spite of several natural disasters. He has continued the trend of reducing unemployment to the lowest rate since President Johnson. He is renegotiating unfair trade deals. He is facing down the nuclear threat from North Korea and looking closely at Iran. No more turning a blind eye to the nuclear threat. ISIS has had their “caliphate” destroyed. That didn’t take long once we got a real leader in charge. Russia and Syria got their asses handed to them for using chemical weapons. Zero tolerance and no threatened red lines, just action. So much for the Russians wanting a President Donald Trump theory. I fail to see the downside of the Trump Presidency.

Veterans understand leadership and getting the job done. This Veterans Day I would like to encourage my fellow veterans to run for political office, if and only if you do NOT expect to find comfort in it. Doing the right thing is often uncomfortable and as a wartime veteran, you know that. Together we can help President Trump Make America Great Again and put America First.

Below is the video from the interview.

Pennsylvania Judges

Pennsylvania Judges

I was at a couple events Friday and Monday night and met several outstanding people running for various judge positions in Pennsylvania. We, as veterans, are sworn to Defend the Constitution. Many of us tend to emphasize political candidates like Presidents, Governors and Congressmen. We often forget about the need to have solid conservative Judges at our state level. I was very impressed to hear Judge Wade Kagerise and Judge Emil Giordano speak at these two events. I had to stand and applaud when they were done speaking.

We cannot have a great country without great Judges at the state and local level. Those Judges who understand it is their job to uphold and interpret existing law rather than creating law are the type of judges we need. Remember the liberal Judges who are standing in the way of President Trump? These types of Judges rise to power because the people are not paying attention. At every leve, Federal, State and Local we need conservative Judges more than ever.

If you are in Pennsylvania or have veteran friends in Pennsylvania reach out and remind them to vote November 7th. I support the following Judges who I personally met and spoke with. They support the conservative point of view.

Judge Wade Kagarise U.S. Army Reserves (veteran), infantryman Long time Rotarian, current vice president of local club Supporter of many community, volunteer, and non-profit organizations. Endorsed Wade Kagariseby:

Judge Giordano learned important lessons of hard work that have prepared him for his career serving us on the courts.  On November 7th, please vote for Judge Emil Giordano for Superior Court.

Dear Flag

Dear Flag

My Dear Flag Memories were inspired by the video at the bottom of this post. You may want to write your own in the comments section.

I remember standing before you as a child in elementary school and pledging allegiance to you.  I remember seeing you wave in the wind above my schoolyard. I remember you draping the coffin of an assassinated President. I remember you on other coffins as our fallen returned from the Vietnam War and many others to come. I remember you when I joined the Air Force and standing at attention when you were raised and lowered daily for nearly 23 years. I remember you greeting us when we returned from Granada, Panama, Gulf War, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and a multitude of foreign countries. I remember you on the shoulder of my comrades in arms, in my office, in parades and at the funerals of my friends.

I remember you on that cold winter day when we were released from our Prisoner of War training. We were weak, we were hungry, we were frostbitten, we had not slept in days. I remember you as we all shed our tears at your site through our dehydrated eyes. Yes, you brought tears to the eyes of some of the toughest people in the world. Just one look assured us that the nightmare was over. We were back in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We were not black, white, brown, red or yellow. We were red, white and blue through and through.

Mr. Price passed away July 20, succumbing to injuries suffered in an accidental fall several weeks ago. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Lakisha Croley)

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”, should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men should remove any non-religious headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute.”

Russia Trump Investigation Origin Exposed

Russia Trump Investigation Origin Exposed

For a long time, I’ve been wondering where the whole story about President Trump and Russia began. At first thought, I recall asking myself who Vladimir Putin would want in the White House more, Clinton or Trump? Would Putin want a known quantity in Hillary Clinton? Granted, Hillary would have been a bit more hawkish than President Obama but that is like asking which is blander without butter and seasoning, grits or mashed potatoes.

Consider Hillary Clinton’s slogan (can you even remember it?) versus “Make America Great Again.” With those two slogans alone, pretend you are Vladimir Putin with a troubled economy that doesn’t want to see America great again. After all a strong American economy and military would put Russia further down on the stage of world influence. It is as plain as the nose on your face.

Just look at this excerpt from yesterday’s Washington Times (no supporter of President Trump).

Apparently, it’s Bill and Hillary Clinton who’ve been doing the behind-scenes and suspicious dealings with Russia all along. Oh, and perhaps others in the Barack Obama administration, too.

You think special counsel Robert Mueller might switch the target of his investigation any time soon? Seems a bit time-wasting — not to mention taxpayer dollar-wasting — to keep on the Trump trail, desperately searching for signs of a collusion that just didn’t happen.

Hillary Clinton Vladimir PutinAdd to that today’s bombshell that was dropped about those who accused President Trump during the campaign pleading the fifth. Why would Vladimir Putin want a President Trump rather than a President Clinton considering the Obama Administration essentially gave away control of 20% of United States uranium to Russia?

Read full story. Excerpt below.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

Yes, it looks like Hillary Clinton was using the “Clinton Foundation” as a money laundering operation. No, it is not our imagination. No matter how hard Hillary Clinton supporters and President Trump haters want it not to be true, there it is. Apparently, it has all been a masterful spin job accusing President Trump of some kind of illegal dealings with Russia. All the while it was the Clinton’s with possible support from the Obama Administration colluding with the Russians.

President Trump – Harrisburg at 193rd Special Operations Wing

President Trump – Harrisburg at 193rd Special Operations Wing

Got an invitation to this event yesterday while I was in North Carolina. I drove all day yesterday to get back to PA to attend I also found out Sean Hannity will be there at some point. It should be a great time. Hearing that Sean was going to be there reminded me of the kick off of Vets for Trump. If you all remember it was Tony Porta who got on stage with Hannity and then-candidate Trump.

I just spoke with a friend of Tony’s and he had a baby girl a few months ago. Last I knew Tony was not doing well and could not respond to emails or text messages due to his eye problems. I am humbled by the fact that the messaging fell to me. I do not pretend to be an elected leader. I simply realized that in the vacuum left by Tony’s absence someone had to step up.

Say prayers for Tony and pray that I might get to talk to our President with Sean. It is a long shot but who knows? We need to first thank President Trump for all he has done. He is a man of his word when it comes to veterans. We must also continue to defend our President and prepare for a second term if he chooses to run.

Leave a comment if you think of any main points I should mention. This is all on the off chance I am able to get time with the President.
