Donald Trump has something on his mind and won't let go of it. He has hinted more than once that he has no intentions of leaving the White House. He loves power, outside of the White House, he's just a washed up real estate guy.
Sarah Hucakabee Sanders had a brilliant career in Republican politics, until she took a job working for Donald Trump. Will she recover? She lied to the American public in Trumps defense and when it was proven, the Press briefings came to a halt. She chose party over people.
Lying Trump is campaigning in Iowa. During his speech he talked about Democrats and how they are socialists. Trump said they wanted everything for free, but that nothing is free. Coming from the man who avoids paying what he owes.
When Trump uses the phrase "Fake News", he does it intentionally because he know his followers will consider the source as illegitimate. Once they've accepted it, no matter what they hear and see to the contrary they won't believe it. It's almost a Cult like mentality. Trump preys on the weak.
Savannah, Georgia is once of the most beautiful, relaxing places to go on a vacation. So much history and so much fun. Movies like Forrest Gump and Something to Talk About were filmed there, they even have Haunted Tours.
Nancy Pelosi is a powerful woman among Democrats and in politics as a whole. Trump gave her the nickname Nervous Nancy because he feels threatened by her, and he very well should be. Powerful Pelosi seems a much better fit for this woman of many accolades.
Bernie Sanders called out Walmart in Trump style. He made it a personal issue with Walmart. He attacked the CEO and the Company. No better than Trump going after Amazon, ATT&T or any other company by demeaning them. Sanders crossed a line.
Right wing media spins lies on Immigration and Pelosi on social media. They have pulled it from Facebook. It's important to clarify, because just like myself, others will find it and can continue to spread the lie. Russia's meddling in America's freedoms, we must verify so we don't push their agenda
Several Democratic candidates want impeachment. Many American's want impeachment. Nancy Pelosi is taking her time and getting her ducks in a row. Today at the California Democratic Convention she has made it clear that not even the President is above the law.
During the 1980's a city called Rajneeshpuram, Oregon came to be when a cult leader developed a commune that later turned in to a terrorist group producing biological chemicals. Unleashing them on the local community and affecting 751 people.
America finally got to hear what Mueller had to say, and it was enough to send Donald Trump on a twitter marathon. The Trump machine is now trying to do everything it can do discredit Mueller, a war hero with an upstanding career.
Trump and his followers are much like the story of the Emperors New Clothes. To read it you can almost see Trump as the Emperor and his administration as his court in fear of losing their jobs.
Trump claims no collusion, but is that really true? The Mueller report doesn't exactly say that. Trump continues to say it to get people to believe it, but a lie is a lie no matter how many times you repeat it. One could give him the nickname Lying Trump as he is quick to do to others. It is fitting
Don McGahn, former White House attorney, left the White House to uphold his morality and avoid getting caught in the illegal things he was asked to do by President Trump.
Trump has been working to discredit Adam Schiff, more so since the Mueller Report became public. How credible is Trump really? More than Adam Schiff?
Donald J Trump is the President of the United States who is suppose to unite and give moral guidance to the country. He sank to the ultimate low when he joked about shooting immigrant after he lead the crowd in that direction.
The Ave Maria Grotto is a detailed world in miniature scale.The history and the beauty are unbelievable. It's a quick stop to relax and stretch your legs during travel. It's a reminder of our faith that we sometimes put aside because we get so busy in life we forget to count our blessings.

Trump is using the Affordable Care Act, aka. Obamacare to get his followers attention. Health Care should not be a tool for being elected. Is Trump using it to get re-elected? American's don't want to live in fear of medical coverage.
Beto O'Rourke stirred something in the Republican Party. When he showed them that he could raise money and get close enough in a red state to almost beat Republican Ted Cruz for a Senate seat. They took notice and have been digging for dirt ever since.
Trump first said Crazy Sanders couldn't beat him, then wouldn't mind running against O'Rourke and began to take shots at him, now Joe Biden is looking really good and Trump calls him Sleepy Joe.
Bernie Sanders will never know if he had the 2016 election stolen from him, but he is willing to throw his hat into the ring again and give it all he has to win. His loyal supporters will fight along side him until 2020.

Donald Trump, unlike any President ever before. His supporters like that he's candid. The rest of the world sees him as crude and a liar. He has lied over 10,000 times since he was sworn in.
