Donald Trump Unveiled: Sending Plane to Rescue?

Corporal Stickney spent six months overseas in Saudi Arabia as leader of a TOW company in the Marines.  After their tour his unit spent some down time at Camp Lajeune in North Caroline before returning to Miami but a major hiccup occurred within the logistics unit so there was not a plane free to take Stickney and about 200 marines home to Miami. 

Somehow Donald Trump found out about the error and he sent a plane so the marines would be able to return home to Miami. Here is a picture Stickney snapped to remember the event: 

"The Marine says he and his family are—to this day—grateful for Trump’s kind gesture. "It may not seem like much to most people, but it was very important to a bunch of jar heads and more importantly their families waiting for them on the hot tarmac."

God Bless Donald Trump.

Islamic Jihad Comes to Orlando Gay Club

A heart wrenching, horrendous shooting at an Orlando, Florida nightclub (well known as a gay bar) has left at least 50 people dead and over 50 individuals injured. My thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to family and friends of those either injured or deceased. May God be with and comfort you during this extremely tough time.

This seems to have been an organized attack by an Islamic jihadist. I have already heard the politically correct mantra calling for tighter gun control. On one news channel journalists were taking aim at the trigger, questioning why citizens are allowed to purchase these types of high-powered guns. The question is not aimed at the right thing or person. The question(s) need to be aimed at the gunman. The gunman succeeded in perpetrating grave evil in the name of Islam. How was this able to happen? The gunman was being watched by law enforcement but they were obviously not on the ball. Did the politically correct code of no profiling thinking get in the way of preventing an act of terrorism?  Does law enforcement need to be trained on new protocols and tactics when coming head on with acts of terrorism?  I believe the heart of the gunman is the problem, not guns.  Our military has access to these types of guns. A citizenry that does NOT have access to the same types of guns as our government would not be suitably equipped to fight against a far overreaching, powerful government that has outwardly violated citizens' rights and ostensibly rejected our constitution should that ever happen. Hopefully this scenario never happens.

I am hoping that law enforcement across our country learn from this horrible massacre so future attacks can be thwarted to avoid anything like this from happening again.

Syrian Refugees

The governors are correct in demanding suspending importing Syrian refugees, temporarily.  Anyone with common sense would know this is the right thing to do in light of the terrorist attacks in Paris.  This is a matter of national security.  Keeping citizens safe in the United States.  This is not a matter of religious bigotry as Obama has assumed.  How dare us care about the persecuted Christians.  Obama surely doesn't act like he cares about the barbarism being committed against Christians by Muslims. By Islamic extremists.

Who actually is Donald Trump?

Is Donald Trump the man good or bad for the Republican Party?  What qualities of his do you think would make Trump a good president? What qualities of his do you think are negative and are reasons why he should not be president?

Do you think we should separate his business dealings with shady progressive political figures from his running as a political figure for president of the US?

Donald Trump has flip flopped on a number of issues.  Do you think this is genuine?  Or him just saying it to get elected?

Do you agree with Penn Jilette that Donald Trump is a whackjob?

Do we, does America, need a Trumpinator like Ron Russell says?

We may need a person with brass balls who doesn't care what others think of him and isn't bought off by interest groups.

But I think someone can be brass ballsy without having a lack of self control and without using ad hominem attacks against his rivals.

It looks like Trump has consistently donated to Republicans since 2010.  This is a good sign.

I will continue to search into who actually is Donald Trump the man.

I do support some of Donald Trump's political positions especially how he is speaking out about immigration to our country.  I just am not sure I know enough about him to pull the lever for him to be president of the USA.

I'm Working Current Events Links Edition

I hope everyone has had a wonderful time celebrating this Independence Day weekend.  I had a good time watching fireworks last night.  I have been working as a home health aide for close to 2 months.  Even though I am still dealing with quite a few health issues - bad pain - I know my faith has given the grace to be able to work. I really like helping people who can't do for themselves.  I have been pretty busy lately.

Both the Obamacare and gay marriage Supreme Court rulings weren't much of a surprise to me.  I was hoping and praying for a different outcome but with the makeup of the Supreme Court I had a feeling the outcome was going to be as it is.  To me it is sad that the persons who makeup the Supreme Court determine the outcome with their opinions or beliefs and not the constitution, which is the bedrock of our country.  I agree with Louie Gohmert when he said that Justices Kagan and Ginsberg did not follow the law due to the impossibility of their impartiality in the gay marriage case when they have performed same-sex marriages.  It should have been a no brainer for those two justices to have seen the obligation according to law for them to recuse themselves from the gay marriage case.

Now amidst the GOP we are having an immigration debate.  We have presidential contender Donald Trump's immigration comments.  Plus we have other presidential candidates like Jeb Bush denouncing Trump's comments.  As of this weekend Trump stands by his comments. It is my belief that we need to secure our border. I would say most who come across the border without the proper paperwork are looking for a better life.

At Conservative Hideout Matt has commented on human history and progressives and cognitive dissonance.

Motor City Times has some good information on immigration and education funding.

Bunkerville informs us a pastor in Ireland faces prison for "grossly offending" Islam and 42 million plus support ISIS.

At The Astute Bloggers Avi Green posted on the how the U.N. human rights council minimizes rocket attacks.

Patient with Drug Resistant Form of Tuberculosis Waited Seven Weeks to Seek Medical Help

A female patient with a drug resistant form of active Tuberculosis(TB) waited seven weeks to see a medical professional.  She traveled to Missouri and may have infected people.  She traveled to Tennessee and put people at risk of contracting TB.  If she had any of the symptoms of active TB, to name a few such as fever, coughing, hurting to breathe, and chest pains for a few weeks it doesn't make sense for the female patient to wait past three weeks to see a physician. An extra month of infecting people!!!  What the hell is wrong with people today?  The CDC now has to search for those people who may be infected.  Geesh!  People think please think before you act or don't act.  Think about the consequences for both others and yourself. She is now getting treatment at the National Institutes of Health near Washington D.C.

I support free speech; I support @PamelaGeller

 Pamela Geller has every right to hold a draw Mohammed cartoon contest.  That is the beauty of the United States of America.  Our country has freedom of speech, in the very first amendment.  There were two jihadist Islamists who decided to try and shoot up the draw Mohammed event.  Those two extremist Islamists were totally in the wrong.  Some progressives are blaming Pamela Geller for two radical
Islamists attempting to shoot up her event.  Pamela Geller is NOT in the wrong!!  Not one iota!!!  If Christians can act peacefully when there was anti-Christian "art" piss Christ and Virgin Mary in dung then so should Muslims with the draw Mohammed cartoon contest. As much as a Catholic Christian I am offended, outraged, and appalled by the piss Christ and the Virgin Mary in dung I still believe that the so called art is covered under the first amendment. Yes, cartoon drawings that makes fun of or dishonors Mohammed and disrespects Islam is free speech.  Under the first amendment any person is permitted to draw cartoons of Mohammed and hold a draw Mohammed contest.  We must not let violence committed by criminals determine what is considered free speech and what isn't free speech.  I support Pamela Geller and right to freedom of expression under the first amendment.

Hillary Announces Run for President

So Hillary Clinton has announced a run for president, again.  There wasn't much of Hillary in her video announcement.  To me it seemed kinda lame.  Is Hillary the next one in line to be the Democrat nominee, again?  Or will there be another diamond in the rough or anointed one like Barack Obama to derail her plans to be the nominee?
