    President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday afternoon informing her an upcoming taxpayer funded, military escorted trip overseas has been postponed."Dear Madame Speaker. Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event it totally appropriate. I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in...

    It wasn't the media's finest moment. On Tuesday, the press was up in arms over President Trump's decision to offer up a fast food smorgasbord for the NCAA champions the Clemson Tigers when the team visited the White House Monday night. Some angry reporters accused Trump of disrespecting both the athletes and the presidency with the choice in delicacy. Lord help us some reporters even fact checked the president over how many burgers he really served and how much it all cost. Trump previously tweeted that he paid for the burgers himself. So... how much did all that food actually cost?...

    Any champion football player disappointed with Mondays dinner at the White House can blame Democrats, according to a presidential spokesman. Clemson Universitys football team on Thursday joined Donald Trump for dinner to celebrate their win over Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship. However, the government shutdown has left much of the White House staff furloughed, forcing the president to set the menu, the spokesperson said. The event created a golden culinary opportunity for a president whose typical evenings reportedly often involve a cheeseburger in front of the TV. On Mondays menu was McDonalds, Wendys and Burger Kings with...

    Democrats are quick to criticize the Trump administration for anyand everyaspect of the government shutdown. They've been taking jabs at the White House, claiming Trump administration officials will receive a pay raise while some federal workers aren't being paid at all. Trump put an end to the rumors on Friday night when he froze pay for Vice President Mike Trump, members of the cabinet and other high-ranking political appointees. The raises were supposed to go into effect on Saturday, with some officials seeing a raise of roughly $10,000 a year, the New York Timesreported.The reason the pay raises are...
  • A Prayer Circle Around the White House.

    Wouldn't it be nice if people who work or live around Washington DC could make visits to the White House fence to say prayers for the President, his family and our beloved country. People who don't live near DC might think about taking a short vacation there. Think of it as a pilgrimage. Catholics could bring their Rosary beads maybe even leaving them on the fence. Small American flags, religious pictures or prayers could be left there. I am sure that the White House staff would let the President know about this. Think what a warm feeling it will give...

    It may be the last day of 2018, but the press is not going without picking one more fight with President Trump. Trump tweeted out his whereabouts Monday as a way to pressure Democrats to come make a deal with him on immigration. Ten days have passed since the government shutdown and neither side is budging on the border wall. Trump wants $5 billion for border security, including the funds to build the wall, but Democrats won't give a penny more than $1.3 billion, none of which they want going toward the physical barrier he demands. The president said...

    It's likely there will be a Schumer Shutdown, thanks to DJT & the House Freedom Caucus. If this does in fact happen, President Trump will be spending Christmas in Washington and forgoing his much needed vacation at Mar-a-Lago. How cool would it be if some of us could gather at the WH to thank him for fighting for us? Kinda like a Christmas Rally at the White House? It would't have to be on Christmas Day, but perhaps a day during Christmas week? Anyway, just an idea and since some very politically connected people read this forum, maybe it's an...
