Heartbroken

Breaking: Sarah Huckabee Sanders responds to report she’s leaving.

The Press Secretary job is one of the hardest in the WH but I also considered her no less than the Rock of Gibraltar. My sadness is mixed with outrage that the hyenas in the MSM made her job unnecessarily stressful.

Thank you for your service, Sarah. You are much admired by this “tough cookie” who couldn’t have begun to take on your responsibilities.

I suppose this means one down (actually two as her deputy is resigning as well) for the hyenas.

Perfect

In light of all my economic and political interests, I’m truly enamoured with music and as a Boomer, I’m hopelessly arrogant because I used to believe that nothing worth listening to was ever written post 1975.

Until now.

I’ve already bought three CDs from this 26 yr-old, Ed Sheeran and then I found this video. It’s so beautiful, I felt compelled to share.

*WARNING* to all women reading this post: Please be seated before you get a glimpse of the Bocelli sons.

Fascinated

I have just ordered two more Trump biographies:

1. Donald Trump: A President Like No Other by Conrad Black and recommended by member Larry Koler.

2. The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game by Ronald Kessler and recommended by Virginia Thomas, wife of the Supreme Court Justice.

I may be a book freak with a particular attraction to historical and presidential biographies, but what surprises me most is that 18 months into his presidency, I will soon own five books on the Donald. I don’t own that many individual books on Washington or Lincoln!

Trump could end up being the greatest promoter of the book industry in history and would that not be a welcome change?

Who is surprised by this? Raise their hands.

Trump announced Thursday that he was canceling the June 12 summit in Singapore with Kim following hostile comments. Overnight, Kim’s government threatened nuclear confrontation and called Vice President Mike Pence a “political dummy.”

“Rocket Man” has just dug his own grave and I hope we continue to sanction the hell out of that country. Regret the innocent lives that will continue to be lost, but China and the Kims need to take full responsibility for that.

This regime needs to go. Period.

Re: Mass Murder in the U.S.

Hope you don’t mind BGS that I took the liberty of cross posting here because I couldn’t have expressed the true crux of this problem of violence better than you did.
Bryan G. Stephens:

And in London, they are now banning knives because people use those in the absence of guns. And car attacks are getting bigger too. 

The problem is not that there are tools for mass murder, the problem is that there are people willing to do it. What are we doing wrong as a society to produced them? I think there are lots of items, but I would wager lack of fathers is a big one. 

Emphasis mine.

U.S.- China Trade Truce

I see market gains enjoying a 3-5% high this year and because the dollar has already strengthened considerably based upon expectations of a growing American economy, I am continuing to invest in companies that don’t own inventory: tech and financials.

One exception and it’s a giggle: I just bought stock in WWE that has grown 179% this year! Fox and WWE have recently closed a five-year $1 billion dollar deal to air ‘SmackDown Live.’ You should have seen and heard the reactions of friends and family to this investment but I make no personal judgments. I just keep an eye on reality TV because aside from the obvious financials one needs to know when investing, there is another aspect to consider: pop culture.

Donald Trump’s overall economic policies (aside from his recent recommendation to the U.S. Postal Service to raise shipping charges on Amazon) are making life fun again.

Pariah of the Western World

As of this morning, President Trump has been officially uninvited to the impending funeral of Senator McCain. This is the updated list of official snubs:

  1. Barbara Bush funeral
  2. The upcoming royal nuptials; apparently, that icon of responsible behavior, Prince Harry, dislikes Trump but very much wanted to invite the Obamas. The Queen handled this breach of protocol by announcing that this wedding is not considered a state event so no heads of state (including PM May) will be invited. (I’m so over that.)
  3. John McCain funeral

This is what disturbs me: The Bush and McCain families have always been considered “true blue Americans” but both have been quoted as saying they “despise” our POTUS. What kind of example are they setting- particularly the Bushes- who supported a criminal in the last election?

So I comforted myself with a list of important Trump allies both domestically and abroad:

  1. Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio
  2. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas
  3. Senator David Perdue of Georgia
  4. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina who refuses to join the Black Caucus
  5. Representative Chris Collins of New York (first member of Congress to endorse Trump)
  6. PM Benjamin Netanyahu
  7. President Macron (who I think will stay with us despite the withdrawal from the Iran deal)
  8. Justin Trudeau- friendish
  9. Angela Merkel- friendish
  10. Xi Jinping- friendish because he realizes he must be

I’d love to invite members to add names to my list!
