Chalk another one up for President Trump. It is Saturday in North Korea.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the regime no longer needs nuclear tests or intercontinental ballistic missile tests, state-run KCNA reported Saturday.
Of course, this does not mean he will keep his word but this is the first time a North Korean Socialist Dictator has stated he is pulling back publicly.
Now that we know about Mike Pompeo visiting North Korea it should lend credibility to his nomination for Secretary of State. Let’s watch and see what the far left does now!
Vets for Trump originally endorsed both Scott Uehlinger and Dan Meuser. Full disclosure, I personally know Dan and consider him a new friend.
Due to the Pennsylvania Redistricting controversy, both Dan and Scott have ended up competing in the same PA Congressional District 9. In fairness to all parties, we cannot promote one candidate over the other. Since both parties have linked to their respective endorsements I have decided to not remove them from this website.
I take full personal responsibility for this action. If anyone disagrees they may use the comments section under this post.
We will support whichever candidate wins in the May 15th Primary election.
I saw a Douglas Macgregor on Tucker Carlson Monday night making a good point about the use of the regular military to defend our border with Mexico. Here is where the clip begins. I don’t know how long this video will be up since YouTube has a habit of removing these things.
I did some research and found Exclusions to the often cited Posse Comitatus Act that appear to support Macgregor’s assertions. Below is an excerpt of the exclusions.
- Support roles under the Joint Special Operations Command.
- Enforcement of federal law at the discretion of the President of the United States, such as with the 101st Airborne Division by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957.
- Provide surveillance, intelligence gathering, observation, and equipment for domestic law enforcement on operations such as drug interdiction and counter-terrorism
Col Macgregor contends the Guard is great as follow-on troops but the border should first be brought under control by the regular military. As long as the military is not being used against US citizens there is no problem. He also contends that the military’s job is to primarily protect the United States. How can anyone disagree with this clear thinking logic? If the Germans Japanese in WW II were able to mount a full-scale assault against us by land or by sea does that mean we should have only used the National Guard? Ridiculous.
I was chatting with a friend the other day. She asked if I thought our government was broken for good. I reflected and waxed philosophic as I have a habit of doing now that I’m 60. That’s a nice way of saying I’m getting senile.
I had recently read the Wikipedia article on the History of time in the United States. I cannot count the number of people I hear say that daylight savings time should be observed as standard time. It only makes sense. How many times do you come home from a 9 to 5 or 8 to 4 job and have to mow the lawn or rake leaves in the late Fall? The problem is there is no daylight after work and you have to push it off until the weekend and pray it does not rain.
Just read the legislative hoops we have gone through as a nation to establish a standard time on the Wikipedia article linked to in the paragraph above. Heck, you don’t even need to read it. Just scan it to see how long and difficult the process of creating a standard time was, let alone accounting for the laws related to time.
Is it any wonder we can’t fix our immigration system? We can’t even agree on a common sense basis for time! If you read about the money we save as a nation under daylight savings time it is a no-brainer! Yet:
On July 8, 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed the Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1986 into law that contained a daylight saving rider authored by Senator Slade Gorton (R-WA). The starting date of DST was amended to the first Sunday in April effective in 1987. DST continued to end on the last Sunday in October. While the states retain the capability to exempt themselves from DST, they are forbidden by the 1966 federal law (15 USC 260a(b)) from increasing a state’s time spent on DST, unless the United States Congress does this for the entire nation.
I am not going to blame the politicians. We alone are the creators of the problems we face. We got lazy and let politicians stay in office too long. If we keep sending the same people to Washington over and over how can we expect different results? Next time you vote consider sending a non-politician to represent you! We need more business people & regular people in office. That is another reason I support President Trump!
Then I shrugged and said, what did you ask me again?
Lord, I am so tired of hearing President Trump is soft on Russia or that somehow he or his team colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. It is often said “actions speak louder than words” and that is true in this case.
If you look at history here are some undeniable facts.
- President Trump fired 59 Tomahawk Missiles at a Syrian base partially manned by the Russians.
- Heather Nauret and Nikki Haley, speaking on behalf of the Whitehouse have been highly critical of Russia.
- President Trump joined with other leaders in condemning the Russian attack in the UK.
- President Trump authorized the arming of the Ukrainians against Russia. That is a move President Obama backed down on.
- In August 2017 President Trump ordered 3 Russian diplomatic facilities to close.
- March 15th of this year President Trump announced new sanctions against Russia.
- Today President Trump expelled 60 Russian diplomats n response to the poisoning of Russian spy Sergei Skripal in the UK.
For all you America Last haters out there the last thing I will say on this is Presidents Obama and Bush both congratulated Russian Presidents upon their elections.
The Democratic Party’s position along with all other America Last people’s argument falls apart!
Today I logged into Facebook. An old military friend posted an interesting thought that caught my eye. Here it is:
I don’t understand these bombings in Austin. Isn’t it illegal to use a bomb to kill people? And most importantly, there’s no constitutional right to own a bomb. So since we as a society have made using bombs to kill people illegal as well as completely uncool, what rational person would think they can use a bomb to kill people? We need a new law! 🙂
In light of all the school shootings and now bombings in Texas he makes a good point. Why not just ban bombs and make all areas bomb-free zones. That will fix it! It just goes to show the absurdity of the argument against guns.
In my humble opinion, the only thing that deters criminals is punishment. There is little we can do about the mentally unstable apart from early detection and evaluation. Rather than seeking to re-examine the second amendment right to keep and bear arms maybe we need to re-examine the eighth amendment views of cruel and unusual punishment. There was a time not long ago a public hanging was NOT considered cruel and unusual. Hanging is still legal in Washington and New Hampshire. Maybe the public part should be brought back and reserved for these types of crimes. Just a thought that might help deter some people. What are your thoughts?
Vets for Trump fully endorses Paul Mango in the Republican Primary for Pennsylvania Governor to be held 15 May. Paul is a West Point graduate and was a member of the prestigious 82nd Airborne Rangers. We have written about Paul Mango in previous blog posts and now run the Vets for Mango website. Paul is fighting for the Pennsylvania veterans and the middle class. Like President Trump, he comes from outside the swamp.
After leaving the Army Paul attended Harvard and went on to build the healthcare division of McKinsey and Company. President Trump, in his book “The Art of the Deal”, calls McKinsey and Company the top consulting firm in the world. Paul spent 25 years helping companies anticipating and adapting to change.
Paul Mango is the best-suited candidate for helping Pennsylvania out of the budget crisis it now faces. As a veteran, he has taken the motto Duty, Honor and Country and adapted it to Duty, Honor and Commitment to the state of Pennsylvania. Like President Trump and unlike his opponents, Paul Mango is not going to take a salary or a pension while serving as Governor of Pennsylvania! Amazing!
Paul is also endorsed by two of our prominent members, General Paul E. Vallely and Admiral Charles R. Kubic.
Pennsylvania was instrumental in the election of President Trump. Paul is a full supporter of President Trump and his policies. We will need his support in 2020. Please share this post with all your Pennsylvania friends.
Click the link below to download a handy vote reminder file to vote for Rick Saccone Tuesday, 13 March in Pennsylvania. It works on any device or platform with a calendar.
Vote Rick Saccone
Vote for Rick or risk losing your tax cuts soon!
Vets for Trump fully endorse Rick Saccone over Connor Lamb. Yes, both are veterans but no matter how much Lamb seems to endorse most of President Trump’s policies (as a Democrat), he is against the tax cuts. It is on his website and here is the link and the quote. It is hidden under his Infrastructure heading on his Priorities Page
A comprehensive infrastructure bill would create good jobs here tomorrow, and unlike the massive corporate tax cut that just added trillions to the deficit, infrastructure investments pay for themselves.
The Dems like to say “corporate tax cuts” but what they really mean is all tax cuts. I know the tax cuts are giving me around $2,500 more a year in my pocket and I’m not rich. Besides, if you want good paying jobs and more jobs we have to keep those “corporate tax cuts” in place. Who hires people and pays them? It isn’t the worker, it is the business owner.
Do I have to go down the list of corporations returning and investing in America, the bonuses paid to millions of people by corporations because of the tax cuts, the even lower unemployment and better-paying jobs that are coming because of the tax cuts as well as how this affects our national security??? I hope not.
Keep the Democrats out of office. Remember, not a single one of them voted to lower our taxes!!
This Article reviews the British gun control program that precipitated the American Revolution: the 1774 import ban on firearms and gunpowder; the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of violence to effectuate the confiscations. It was these events that changed a situation of political tension into a shooting war. Each of these British abuses provides insights into the scope of the modern Second Amendment.
On this issue, the President and I differ. You cannot take guns from people without due process. It may be a slight difference between what the President said and what Constitutionalists believe. I understand the President wants to get guns and other weapons out of the hands of the mentally disturbed and criminals. What we need to do is expedite the due process, not reverse the order of due process. See the 5th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution.
