Is President Trump Allowed to Play Golf?

by Daveda Gruber:

When President Trump does something you can be certain that people who support him will be okay with it but Democrats and the mainstream media will attack the President’s motives.

On Sunday Trump defended his golf playing.

Trump tweeted this:

The tweet came out after a Saturday trip to Trump National Golf Club in Northern Virginia.

Trump had time for a round of golf after a campaign rally in New Hampshire was cancelled because of storms expected from Tropical Storm Fay.

It marked the president’s first trip to the course, which is a favorite of his, since the pandemic began.

This was Trump’s 275th visit to a golf club as president. It is the 273rd time he traveled while being president to one of the golf clubs owned by his family’s company.

During the presidency of Barack Obama, the then President played a total of 333 rounds of golf during his eight years in office.

Obama visited a golf course 98 times through the same time in his presidency as Trump.

By late May, it was reported that Trump had spent all or part of 248 days at a golf course while president.

Why is this even an issue? I’ll tell you.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump attacked President Barack Obama for reports of Obama’s visits to play golf.

Trump said, at the time, “Because I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go play golf.”

Maybe Trump didn’t anticipate such a stressful presidency and didn’t know he’d need some time to get some fresh air and relax on a golf course.

In my opinion, Trump should play golf whenever he has the time. I play golf and it is a good stress reliever for me. I hope it does the same for my President.

Trump Gives Mount Rushmore & July 4th New Meaning

by Daveda Gruber:
Last night many Americans had the privilege to watch and listen to President Trump in South Dakota in the shadow of the beauty of Mount Rushmore.

As the President stood and spoke, many thought that this was his best speech since he became our President.

There had been concerns that Mount Rushmore could be destroyed because of the efforts from radical domestic terrorists to take away our history by removing statues and monuments that these anti-Trump people feel make them feel offended.

In his speech Trump vowed, “This monument will never be desecrated. All of those found guilty of defacing statues and monuments will face ten years in prison. The party’s over for lawless and destructive street anarchy.”

Trump went on to say, “This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore. Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny. In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country, and for each other.”

“Trump declared the United States to be “the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth” and claimed that “no nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America and no people have done more to promote human progress than the CITIZENS [emphasis original] of our great nation.”

Last night’s kickoff for July 4th celebrations included a spectacular fireworks show over Mount Rushmore, which has not been done for a decade because of the possibility of wild fires.

Apparently, the risk has been diminished throughout the years. There were no reports of wildfires burning in the Black Hills the morning after.

I felt that the spirit of Independence Day was delivered with grace and strength by a man who came across as a real leader of the greatest nation in the world.

In essence, our President may have given the most expressive and high spirited speech of his presidency. I truly believe that he gave new meaning to the importance of Mount Rushmore and to

July 4th our Independence Day.

On the July 4th 2020 weekend, a renewed passion released patriotism within the American people and the sky up high at Mount Rushmore.

Watch Trump’s speech here:

God Bless President Trump and God Bless America!

Did Russians Put a Bounty on U.S. Military in Afghanistan?

by Daveda Gruber:

Late on Monday the Defense Department claimed that there is no corroborating evidence that supports what the New York Times reported about Russian military offering bounties to the Taliban linked militants in Afghanistan to kill U.S. troops.

President Trump has denied any knowledge of the situation that the Times reported.

A statement from the Pentagon was put out.

Jonathan  Hoffman, the chief Pentagon spokesman, said in that statement, “To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan—and around the world—most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats.”

The New York Times did not name its sources but they are allegedly officials.

The unnamed people allegedly gave information that some “Islamist militants” or “criminal elements” collected payouts.

The report went on to say that that 20 Americans were killed there in 2019 but the article didn’t articulate if the bounty had been involved in any of the deaths.

In a statement from the national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, he wrote that the allegations in the report were not verified by the intelligence community and that is the reason that Trump was not briefed on the matter.

He said, “Nevertheless, the administration, including the National Security Council staff, have been preparing should the situation warrant action.”

O’Brien noted that Trump’s top priority is the security of Americans and the safety of the men and women who serve in the military.

A briefing was led by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and O’Brien, were Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX., who is  the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Representative Adam Kinzinger, R-IL.,

McCaul and Kinzinger said in a statement that lawmakers were told “there is an ongoing review to determine the accuracy of these reports.”

In the statement they said, “If the intelligence review process verifies the reports, we strongly encourage the Administration to take swift and serious action to hold the Putin regime accountable.”

Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also gave a statement which she said, “This does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter.”

She reiterated that the White House has maintained that neither Trump nor Vice President Mike Pence was briefed on such intelligence.

It has been reported that Trump has now been briefed but that briefing took place after the New York Times reported on unverified intelligence.

But the White House is still insisting that Trump has not been briefed yet.

Why the discrepancy? Could the information have been completely made up?

On Tuesday, top Democrats in the House visited the White House for a briefing on the alleged bounties.

The delegation was led by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md,. and also included Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., and others.

On Monday, Hoyer had demanded a briefing for all House members on the matter.

A think tank, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ senior fellow, Thomas Joscelyn, allegedly told the Wall Street Journal that “Moscow’s willingness to embrace the Taliban openly and publicly dates back several years.” He also said that would not be surprised if there is truth to the report.

If there is truth to the report? The report has not been verified or substantiated by the Intelligence Community.

What if there is no truth to the report? Could the New York Times have just made up the story?

The mainstream media is in a very sad state of affairs if we have to question big news sources that we have trusted for years. But then, that’s why we all use the term “Fake News” so freely.

No Suing if You Go to a Trump Rally

by Daveda Gruber:

It is rather exciting that President Trump is staring rallies again. Next week, a rally is planned in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but there is one catch, you must agree to not to sue the Trump reelection campaign if you contract the coronavirus.

If you want a ticket to the rally, you must agree that you are aware of the risk of COVID-19.

“By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury.”

Here it is in a tweet by Paul Steihauser:

The president enjoys campaigning and had full intentions of resuming his rallies in July but the unset of protests in large numbers led him to get back to rallies sooner and one is scheduled for June 19th in Tulsa where the venue is an indoor arena.

Joe Biden has resumed small-scale in-person campaign events. All participants wear face-masks. Biden has not resumed in-person fundraisers or rallies.

Trump has already started his fundraising campaigns since the unset of COVID-19. On Thursday an in-person fundraiser took place in Dallas, Texas.

Since people are gathering in large numbers to protest, loot, burn down infrastructure and vehicles the president doesn’t see a problem with rallies.

It is understood that the virus is still not contained but people have different and conflicting views on its severity and cure.

Masks are still mandatory in some states but people various ideas on that too.

Theories are in abundance about the coronavirus, as well.

I’m not a doctor or a scientist but I do have my own thoughts on the issue.

Bill Gates and some high level Democrats have given money to Wuhan, China. Bill Gates wants the citizens of the world to be vaccinated. He owns a patent through a company, for a vaccine. If this were to be mandated, Gates would be a trillionaire.

I’ve written more extensively on some of these issues but let’s get down to the nitty gritty.

Who are the losers from COVID-19?

  1. The people who are sick or who have died.
  2. People in nursing homes who were infected when COVID-19 patients were sent to nursing homes.
  3. People who lost jobs and/or business when they could not work or open their businesses.
  4. Trump, because the good he did for the economy was washed away.
  5. Trump because he could no longer hold rallies for his supporters and people deciding if they would vote for him.

Who are the winners from COVID-19?

  1. Democrats because they blame Trump for it.
  2. Democrats because Trump banned travel to some countries and they could call Trump a racist for this.
  3. Democrats because they blame Trump for mishandling the pandemic.
  4. Democrats because they no longer have to rebut the state of the economy.
  5. Democrats because Joe Biden is not out in the public making a fool of himself. (This hasn’t worked out well because he still speaks from his basement.)
  6. Criminals who do not want to recognized.

Here are some facts about wearing a mask:

A mask is supposed to be used for a limited time. If used long term:

  1. Oxygen in the blood is reduced.
  2. Oxygen to the brain is reduced.
  3. You start to feel weak.
  4. May lead to death.

If you go into isolation in a hospital this is what you are subjected to:

  1. Vitamin C-100
  2. Vitamin E
  3. During 10 to 12 hours sitting in the sunshine for 15 – 20 minutes.
  4. Egg meal once a day.
  5. Sleeping a minimum of 7 to 8 hours a night.
  6. Drinking 1.5 liters of water per day.
  7. Eating warm meals and no cold meals.
  8. Consuming foods that boost the immune system, for example, high alkaline foods that are above the acidity of the virus.

Examples of Alkaline rich foods:

Green lemon

Yellow lemon

Avocado

Garlic

Mango

Tangerine

Pineapple

Watercress

Oranges

*Note that pH of coronavirus is between 5.5 to 8.5

How to not be infected by the virus is simple too. Build up your immune system.

I will reiterate that I am not a doctor or a scientist. These facts that I’ve shown you are through my own investigations.

I’m not telling anyone what to do. Do as you see fit. Wash your hands often as you should be doing anyways.

Would you go to a Trump rally during this pandemic? Would you wear a mask? I’m not hiding my face because I have nothing to hide it from and I don’t have the virus. If I were sick, I’d stay home but if I’m not sick, I’m protecting others from my germs, not myself by wearing a mask.

Stay safe and healthy!

Trump: US Will Designate Antifa a Terrorist Group

by Daveda Gruber:

On Sunday it became clear that President Trump has advised the U.S. government will designate Antifa a terrorist group.

Antifa is a far-left organization that has been causing havoc in cities across America, especially in the past few days after the alleged murder of George Floyd on May 25th.

Floyd, who is a black man, was unarmed as an officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes while he screamed that he could not breathe in an incident which was caught on video in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

President Trump tweeted this on Sunday:

My response to the President’s tweet was:

Peaceful protests against police began not long after the alleged murder that happened after Chauvin put his knee on the neck of Floyd with three other officers who were involved. Two of the three other officers were seen on video kneeling on Floyd as another kept people away while they were pleading for Floyd’s life.

Accusations were tossed around against both far-left extremists and white nationalists.

Trump labeled the rioters as Antifa.

On Saturday Trump tweeted this:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called rioters “Antifa-like” during a televised appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Pompeo said, “I think it still remains to be seen exactly how” the situation devolved from peaceful protests to something entirely different.”

In the meantime, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told “Fox News Sunday” he has evidence that people from out-of-state were involved in the violent behavior that took place in Minneapolis. He was not specific on whether rioters were affiliated with a particular group or ideology.

Senator Bill Cassidy, R-La., sponsored resolution that was co-sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization in 2019.

The resolution came about in response to threats and actions that Antifa-affiliated individuals made against ICE officials and journalist Andy Ngo.

If anyone wants me to believe that people who came in droves from other states, some bussed in, and do not peacefully protest but set fires to vehicles and buildings and loot stores are protesting, you are sadly mistaken.

Arsonists burn places and things not demonstrators.

A terrible thing occurred when Floyd was declared dead but it is in the best interest of everyone concerned that justice be served in a timely manner.

More crimes from arson and destruction as well as officers getting hurt and the loss of life that has come about is not the solution. In fact, uncalled for violence makes matters worse.

 

US Cuts Relationship with WHO

by Daveda Gruber:

On Friday President Trump made an announcement that the U.S. is now terminating the relationship it previously had with the World Health Organization or “WHO” as they are referred to.

The termination came about over the inability and/or failure of WHO to enact reforms that the U.S. has concerns over its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. also claims that WHO has displayed pro-China bias.

At a press conference of sorts, President Trump spoke and did not mince words when he said, “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today be terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.”

Trump spoke about his distaste for the manner in which China has handled trade, the coronavirus and its intrusion into Hong Kong’s freedom in the manner of government.

Hong Kong exists as a Special Administrative Region controlled by The People’s Republic of China and enjoys its own limited autonomy as defined by the Basic Law. The principle of “one country, two systems” allows for the coexistence of socialism and capitalism under “one country,” which is mainland China.

Trump went on to say, “The world is now suffering as a result of the misfeasance of the Chinese government.”

Funding of WHO was frozen this month by Trump. He threatened to make it permanent if the organization did not endorse restructuring.

The U.S. had been the top contributor to WHO in the amount of approximately $450 million a year, and China had paid approximately $50 million a year and now China has increased their contribution to WHO to $2 billion.

Concerns by the U.S. over WHO’s praise of Chinese transparency and its continuing repetition of the Chinese claims that the virus could not be spread from person-to-person, which we now know to be false.

Trump also said, “Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities. Countless lives have been taken and profound economic hardship has been inflicted across the globe.”

There were no questions by the press answered after Trump spoke.

To be quite honest, the type of questions generally asked by the mainstream media are not really worth answering so why should the President waste his time with them?

He shouldn’t and didn’t.

Mail-In Ballots Ordered by Newsom

by Daveda Gruber:

On Friday Governor Gavin Newsom made a big move by signing an executive order to send all registered voters in the state of California a mail-in ballot for November’s presidential election.

Newsom released a statement that read, “Elections and the right to vote are foundational to our democracy. No Californian should be forced to risk their health in order to exercise their right to vote.”

California is now the first state to automatically send voters ballots before the general election even though Newsom reiterated that residents of California will still have access to in person voting sites.

This unprecedented move comes in the mist of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many in person voting facilities in the state primaries have been closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Concerns of fraud and abuse were immediately brought to light by Republicans. They have opposed the expansion of mail-in ballots out of fear it would lead to voter fraud. Republicans have also brought up the possibilities of legal challenges.

At this time the Republican National Committee said it is reviewing its legal options “to ensure the integrity of the election.”

California Republicans have noted problems in the state with voter rolls and a “motor voter” program to register new voters that led to hundreds of thousands of inconsistencies..

Allegedly, the errors that were reviewed did not allow anyone to vote who should not have been allowed to vote.

In a statement by Jessica Millan Patterson, who is chairman of the California Republican Party said, “To mail out millions of ballots to voter rolls have proven to contain alarming errors throughout the state is not a task that these Democrats can adequately manage or safely execute.”

President Trump has alleged that voting by mail is prone to corruption and he opposes the practice but he has not produced evidence of this.

Last month the President said, “Mail ballots, they cheat. Mail ballots are very dangerous for this country because of cheaters. They go collect them. They are fraudulent in many cases.”

On Friday Newsom put out a statement which reads, “Mail-in ballots aren’t a perfect solution for every person, and I look forward to our public health experts and the Secretary of State’s and the Legislature’s continued partnership to create safer in-person opportunities for Californians who aren’t able to vote by mail.”

Well then, it appears that Newsom disagrees with himself. He sent out ballots to vote by mail but believes some people cannot vote by mail because they’re unable to?

This is all rather contradictory to me. How can anyone predict what levels the coronavirus pandemic will be like in November? How does a governor unilaterally make these decisions? Does Newsom have a crystal ball?

Voting in person with identification would be the safest manner for any election to be fair. I’ll assume Newsom disagrees with me.

Look Who Wants to Stop Illegal Border Crossings!

by Daveda Gruber:

Even though some states support illegal migrants in the U.S., one state doesn’t want people crossing over the southern border.

California is well known for promoting border crossings but it appears the tone is now changed.

A total of 22,088 COVID-19 cases in Mexico have been reported as of May 2nd. Now southern California officials are seeking aid in reducing cases in the U.S. that are originating from border crossings.

President Trump didn’t resist taking to Twitter to inform his supporters.

Trump tweeted this:

A letter was sent to Vice President Mike Pence by San Diego County’s Third District supervisor, Kristin Gaspar. The letter was sent in April and stated that medical professionals were “increasingly worried about the rapid spread of COVID-19 in northern Mexico.”

The letter went on to say that there had been “a sudden influx of critically ill patients from Mexico” in Chula Vista, California.

Gaspar also asked for senior Trump administration officials to speak with local hospital executives and medical professionals to address the issue at hand.

Daniel Sharp, who is HealthCare COVID‐19 Strategic Response Executive Consultant and Chris Van Gorder, who is Scripps Health President and CEO jointly wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf asking them for help in dealing with coronavirus cases at the southern border.

The Otay Mesa port of entry is closed to pedestrians and vehicles at night as of Sunday.

The U.S. and Mexico’s agreed on March 21st to limit travel across the border to essential traffic only so there is a decreased amount of travel in that area.

Even with that order in place, tens of thousands of people cross the San Ysidro-Tijuana border every day according to the letter authored by Van Gorder and Gross.

The letter states, “Today, coronavirus cases are increasing at rates exceedingly faster among border communities compared to the rest of San Diego County.”

Once again Trump seems to have gotten it right. In fact, now according to the letter, border crossings made by those with work visas or U.S. citizens living in Mexico are not wanted in the Democratic state.

I wonder what happened to California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s sanctuary policies? What happened to protecting illegal immigrants from being deported by federal authorities?

California no longer wants legal or illegal migrants?

Well, I guess Hell just froze over because the Democrats have changed their minds about the southern border.

Did the Obama Regime Pay for the Missiles Fired at US?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Wednesday former President Barack Obama took some heat as President Trump blamed the last administration for money given by the Obama regime to Iran.

Trump has claimed that the money given to Iran by the Obama administration was used to pay for missiles that were aimed at U.S. troops in Iraq.

The nation listened and watched as Trump spoke the morning following the Iranian regime’s launching of more than a dozen missiles at Iraqi bases which house American troops.

The missiles were fired by Iran in a retaliatory attack for the U.S. strike last week that killed top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

While referring to settlement money the U.S. paid to Iran in 2016, Trump said from the White House, “The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration.”

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) is the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal. The U.S. withdrew from it in 2018.

Supporters of the deal claimed it kept Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

Trump on the other hand renewed his assertion that it bolstered Tehran.

Trump said, “Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying thank you to the United States, they chanted ‘Death to America.’”

He added that Iran went on a “terrorist spree” with that money “and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq.”

He went on to say that it was with that money that the missiles fired late Tuesday were funded.

Trump has never been a fan of the deal and zeroed in particularly on the money that was unfrozen or sent to Iran directly in the darkness of night.

It cannot be determined exactly how the missiles were paid for but some Republicans have connected the Iran settlement money to the attacks.

While on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz said, “In a very real sense, the missiles that we saw fired at U.S. servicemen and women tonight were paid for by the billions that the Obama administration flooded the Ayatollah with.”

The money that was paid in cash, was transferred with a planeload of $400 million delivered to Tehran on Jan. 17 2016. On the same day Iran agreed to release four American prisoners.

The payment of $1.3 billion that remained was reported to have been paid within weeks of that first payment.

Then there is $150 billion which is an estimated value of Iranian assets that had been frozen abroad in financial institutions as part of international sanctions. That money was unfrozen as part of the deal.

That money could generate about $55 billion in liquid assets.

After leaving the Obama-Iran deal, the Trump administration has put back sanctions on Tehran. Violations by the Iranian regime by stockpiling uranium has brought back the restrictions.

Trump has called for other countries to break away from the deal and secure a new one.

Trump said, “The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and China to recognize this reality. They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal or JCPOA. And we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place.”

Trump Speaks to America in Wake of Weekend Shootings

by Daveda Gruber:

President Donald Trump, with Vice President Mike Pence standing beside him, spoke to the American people on Monday morning about the horrific murders in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend that left at least 30 people dead.

The death toll may rise.

In the wake of the weekend shootings, Trump called for reforms at the junction of mental health and gun laws. This includes “red flag laws” to take guns from those who are deemed to be a public risk.

The president said, “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”

Trump also condemned white supremacy in a response that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto.

Trump said, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

There was no call for changing gun laws aside from the “red flag laws.” Trump did say that he is open and ready to listen to ideas “that will actually work

Trump tweeted this today:

Trump called for “cultural” changes, mentioning violent video games. he said that he has directed the Justice Department to propose legislation ensuring that those commit hate crimes and mass murders “face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay.”

The president also called for policing the “dark recesses of the Internet” in a bid to catch mass murderers before they act.

Trump also said, “We must do a better job at identifying and acting on early warning signs. I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partnership with local, state, and federal agencies and social media companies to develop tools to identify mass shooters before they strike.”

Trump went on to say, “Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.”

On Saturday, a gunman, Patrick Crusias, aged 20, whom Trump described on Monday as a “wicked man,” killed 22 people, the number was updated on Monday after two other individuals died in hospital, and injured 24 others after he opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

So far, no motive for the attack has been determined but it was reported that Betts, while in high school, was suspended for compiling a “hit list” of those he wanted to kill, and a “rape list” of girls he wanted to sexually assault.

In Dayton, Ohio, 24-year-old Connor Betts, whom Trump described on Monday, as well, as a “twisted monster,” opened fire outside a bar around 1 a.m. Sunday, killing his adult sister and eight others. Police say he was fatally shot by officers within 30 seconds.

The shooter was wearing a mask, bulletproof vest, earplugs and had at least 100 rounds of ammunition. Nine people are dead and 27 were injured.
In the wake of the shootings Democratic presidential candidates running for 2020 were quick to comment that Trump’s remarks were insufficient.

A number of Democratic lawmakers and presidential candidates have also accused the president of fueling racial tensions with his rhetoric.
