HONORING THE VICTIMS OF THE TRAGEDY IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Our Nation is heartbroken. We mourn with all whose loved ones were murdered and injured in last night's horrible tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada. As we grieve, we pray that God may provide comfort and relief to all those suffering.
As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless act of violence perpetrated on October 1, 2017, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, October 6, 2017. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

President trump? When referring to that POS in office, I don't use his name because that would be showing respect. I prefer orange man-baby or orange POS. As far as that pile of sh*t visiting shooting victims, haven't those poor people suffered enough?
There are reports saying that the shooter's muslim name is Samir al-Hajib, evidently he converted to Islam at the age of 30.
There are also reports, outside of ISIS, that say there is no known connection to Islam. I believe I would believe very nearly anyone in the world - a pathological liar, for instance - before I'd believe anything ISIS had to say.
I read that ISIS was claiming responsibility. It usually takes at least 48 hours for the facts to really start rolling out, and we can't count on the liberal media to be spot on. (added) They have been reporting that the shooter committed suicide. He was killed by a FBI hostage rescue team.
I saw one report that said the death toll is rising because people are in critical condition. So very said.
Who's saying that he was killed by an FBI team? Because it's not the media that came up with the suicide theory, it was literally the Las Vegas Sheriff who said he shot himself before they got to him.
ISIS claims responsibility for everything they can get away with. They are under a lot of pressure and not the authorities in Europe and the US are getting better at catching their operatives before they can do anything. So they claim responsibility for every violent attack that makes the news, to try to make it look like they're still a force to be reckoned with.
President Trump and the Fist Lady in Puerto Rico at a briefing on relief efforts.
We had 4,000 people in Puerto Rico before the first hurricane, after it, and during the category 5 hurricane, then more started to be pored in. Some of these men have been going from one hurricane after another for the past 42 days. I think its time they get some much needed R&R, but they are doing what they love to do, helping our fellow citizens.
President Trump and The First Lady Visit with Individuals Impacted by Hurricane Maria
Its great to hear positive reports coming from people in Puerto Rico. Still the death toll from the hurricanes is at 16, that is incredible...miraculous.
I didn't know (now I do) that POTHUS and FLOTUS went to see first hand on the US Virgin Islands today too. Way cool to see how happy the governor is with the wonderful response with aid and whatever is needed (the same is truth with the Gov. of PR). The governor of Puerto Rico was there too. I thought it was so cut when the Gov. of the Virgin Islands was talking to the Gov of PR. It was love between island neighbors. I could feel the love from everyone in the room for everyone (all of us). Good to feel such love and unity, we need more of that.
Why not see for yourself, and forget about teLIESvision fake news.

The State Department on Friday approved a $15 billion missile defense sale to Saudi Arabia, even as some lawmakers contest the sale over human rights concerns.
The sale — part of a $110 billion defense deal with the kingdom announced in May — is for the Lockheed Martin and Raytheon-made Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, according to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which handles foreign military sales.
Saudi Arabia has requested 44 THAAD launchers, 360 interceptor missiles, radars, batteries, trucks to move the system and other equipment.
“This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by improving the security of a friendly country,” the agency notice states.

It takes a great intellect to stomp her feet and yell, "fake news."
But, seriously, are you so inept that you cannot engage the issues directly? Or is that just too hard?
You've repeatedly been exposed as a purveyor of photo shopped images and fake videos. It took slightly more effort than childishly yelling "fake news" whenever your ideas are threatened.
This is the state of a large segment of Trump supporters, folks. Pay attention! These misinformed citizens are a threat to our country.
I call a spade a spade!
May you be blessed by God, everyday going forward.
Draining the swamp rats....Trump's agenda. Thor, to you.

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims October 9, 2017, as Columbus Day
COLUMBUS DAY, 2017
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation. Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions -- even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity.
More than five centuries after his initial voyage, we remember the "Admiral of the Ocean Sea" for building the critical first link in the strong and enduring bond between the United States and Europe. While Isabella I and Ferdinand II of Spain sponsored his historic voyage, Columbus was a native of the City of Genoa, in present day Italy, and represents the rich history of important Italian American contributions to our great Nation. There can be no doubt that American culture, business, and civic life would all be much less vibrant in the absence of the Italian American community. We also take this opportunity to reaffirm our close ties to Columbus's country of birth, Italy. Italy is a strong ally and a valued partner in promoting peace and promoting prosperity around the world.
In commemoration of Christopher Columbus's historic voyage, the Congress, by joint resolution of April 30, 1934, and modified in 1968 (36 U.S.C. 107), as amended, has requested the President proclaim the second Monday of October of each year as "Columbus Day."
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 9, 2017, as Columbus Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also direct that the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of our diverse history and all who have contributed to shaping this Nation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.
DONALD J. TRUMP

President Trump signed an Executive Order to promote healthcare choice and competition.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon predicted on Saturday that President Trump will win the 2020 election with 400 electoral college votes.
The way the left is falling apart, I believe Bannon is right on.
Yeah, Bannon is a stream roller, very dangerous man for the corrupt establishment on any side of the fence!
If you want to understand Steve Bannon watch his documentary "Generation Zero" it will help you understand. Its very educational, I took the time to research many of the facts covered that I didn't know about, so it took me days to get through the doc.

No, that doesn't make me happy. The corrupt system that "Generation Zero" exposes is not a happy documentary, but is important for education and understanding.

"Tim Kennedy is a Sergeant First Class with the 7th Special Forces Group of the US Army and is still part of the most elite section of the Special Forces. Due to his direct work in the Middle East after 9/11, he is essential to this death claims investigation. He and his team were on the ground actively tracking the movements–and the eventual capture–of al-Qaeda leaders Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and Osama bin Laden, giving him first-hand insight into the type of actions high-value targets utilize when attempting to evade capture.
Kennedy is currently part of the “Special Forces Detachment Unit” which pools the most elite military minds from the Army, Navy, and Air Force Special Forces to create an unparalleled intelligence and tracking force."

GDP growth is translating into jobs and expanded payrolls for Americans
NOVEMBER 3, 2017 BY COUNCIL OF ECONOMIC ADVISERS
The U.S. economy continues to experience worker-friendly growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported today that nonfarm payrolls grew by 261,000 jobs in October while the unemployment rate fell by 0.1 percentage point to 4.1 percent, the lowest rate in more than 16 years. Job growth estimates for August and September were revised upward by a total of 90,000 jobs. These revisions put the U.S. back on the pre-established 2017 job growth trend (Figure 1), and preserved the economy’s longest consecutive, positive monthly job growth period on record.

"Blue Collar Billionaire: Trump Bodyguard Went On McDonald’s Runs for President Because White House Chefs Couldn’t Replicate Quarter Pounders
Longtime Trump bodyguard and former White House aide Keith Schiller testified before the House Intelligence Committee today in the Russian probe.
Politico claims when Schiller was still at the White House, he use to make regular Mickey D runs to nearby New York Avenue for the President.
Schiller says the $240,000/year White House chef was unable to match the satisfaction of Trump's favorite, a quarter-pounder with cheese (no pickles, extra ketchup) and a fried apple pie.
That is 772 calories without fries. Trump has been seen with McDonald's food on many occasions, including the day after he accepted the GOP nomination (see photo).
It made the national TV news on October 16, 1984 when President Ronald Reagan surprised reporters by having his motorcade stop at a McDonald’s restaurant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Reagan ordered a Big Mac, large fries and a sweet tea. He stood in the line and refused to cut in front.
Barack and Michelle Obama were fond of French restaurants and nouvelle cuisine "with an emphasis on presentation."
The New York Times says they enjoy "elitist food" and this first became apparent in the 2008 Iowa precinct caucuses.
Obama told farmers they could make good money planting specialty crops rather than just corn and soybeans.
He asked his audience if anyone had seen the price of arugula lately at Whole Foods.
Conservative and liberal pundits howled: Arugula! Whole Foods! The Washington Post said "As if the mooing masses of Iowans had ever heard of such a thing or such a place!"
~ Gregory Hilton (I thought that was kind of funny in a cute way.)
First of all, it is great to see that an actual speech of the President was put here for everybody to see. Secondly, I consider the comment about the president being off the topic because people now have more serious issues to deal with. I think that is you look at this infographic about presidents you could see how the presidents reacted to the tragedies in the past and what were their decisions therefore. I consider Trump to be smart enough to start acting now. People have been tired of living in fear for long now. If you look at what happened at Charleston, you would agree that was indeed an issue of mental health for those criminals. That’s why a resolution on restriction rules to selling guns should have been issued long ago. People mustn’t constantly fear that some crazy man would show up shooting everybody because he is offended by the government in some way. I hope that the actions towards the solution of this problem will be following very soon. Let there be more restriction but safer days.

When Obama went around the world, he bowed and apologized over and over again to foreign leaders, and lost the respect of many countries.
When Trump went around the world, he gave honor, gained respect and gained over 250 Billion dollars in trade deals for OUR Country!
