COMMON SENSE: The good news is President Trump is in exceptionally good health for a man his age, probably because he has never smoked or consumed alcoholic beverages. He is the poster boy for temperance.
 
The bad news is how disappointed the media was to learn this news. They wanted Dr. Ronny Jackson to affirm their deepest desire. They wanted him to verify that the President was mentally unfit to lead our nation, but Dr. Jackson wouldn’t do it. Instead, he did the exact opposite. Since Jackson was also the White House physician for President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama, the media couldn’t dismiss the doctor’s findings either.
 
Nevertheless, for nearly an hour, one reporter after the other tried to find a loophole in Trump’s physical to use against him. That the level of bitterness and acrimony against President Trump is this high should give every American a reason to pause. Collectively, the press is acting more like a venomous ex-spouse than the 4th Estate.
 
In their hatred for Trump, they have lost their objectivity. Instead, they have become an adversarial body—something that has never been their historical role. Not only does this affect their objectivity and credibility, but it also undermines the legitimate respect for the office of the Presidency. Their misanthropy toward Trump is certain to have significant negative consequences in the future. Like a spoiled child who can’t get his or her way, the press’ corporate Histrionic Personality Disorder is having a negative impact on us all.
 
This madness needs to stop. Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and he will be our Commander-in-Chief for the remainder of his term. Even if you do not like it, you must learn to accept it. That’s the American way.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. I knew Dr. King as a young man. His mom was a “Call Customer” of mine, when I sold shoes at Davison’s downtown. The following story from Unholy Seduction is true, and it was my experience. I used it in the novel.
 
“Then, newsworthy events began to impact our lives. When we heard that Martin Luther King, Jr., had been shot and killed in Memphis, we were completely unprepared to learn the news. His execution made me think about what I had been doing when JFK was assassinated in Dallas—just up the road from Midlothian. Like Kennedy’s murder five years earlier, schools were closed out of respect for Dr. King.
 
Being a lifelong resident of Atlanta and a local pastor, Dr. King’s funeral was scheduled for a few days later—not far from where we lived. Not having to teach that day, I decided to attend. Because Jolene had a cold and couldn’t go to daycare, Val needed to remain at home, so I went alone.
 
When I arrived, I had no idea hundreds of thousands of people would be there—all stunned and heartbroken by the assassination. In my naïveté, I thought there might be a few thousand, but I was mistaken. There was a sea of humanity.
I marched with thousands of others—nameless, faceless people—who walked with me up Courtland Avenue past Georgia State University, where I considered going to graduate school at night.
 
The procession was about twenty across and many miles deep. The most interesting thing about the march was how silent the people were. Nobody talked. All that could be heard was the sound of feet shuffling on the pavement—thousands of feet. Only a few cried, and those who did, weren’t demonstrative.
Most were too stunned to do anything other than put one foot in front of the other. Nobody was told to be quiet. Everybody just seemed to realize that being silent was what we were supposed to do. Besides, there was nothing to say. The impact this silent march made upon each person was indelible. It was something none of us would ever forget.
 
As we passed the State Capitol, I saw vigilant state troopers standing, side-by-side, four feet apart. Each was holding a rifle, as they surrounded the building, protecting Governor Lester Maddox—my arch-segregationist former donor. As I walked by, I remember thinking his side had won. He had all the guns and all of the political power. He was in charge of the state, while his ally, Governor Wallace, was making a surprisingly strong third party bid for the Presidency. Adding to their victory, Dr. King was dead—murdered by a segregationist.
 
Witnessing the troopers, I finally admitted to myself that I had been wrong to take Governor Maddox’s money. I had justified my actions, accepting his donation on three separate occasions, because Crusade needed the funds. Looking at the State Troopers as I passed, I felt like I had been as fraudulent as Hixson Orr.
 
In my heart, I knew there was never a right way to do a wrong thing, but I disregarded this truth by depositing Maddox’s checks. As I walked by, I felt tainted and dirty, as unclean as the guys who were ordered to take a shower before being examined for their Army physical.
 
Grief stricken, I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than that day. Finally admitting how unethical my actions had been grieved me, but it also felt cleansing.
 
Based on the perspective I had that day, segregation had won, defeating racial equality. “Darkies” would be kept in their place, and I was there to witness it—just another bystander who refused to make a stand for what was right. I felt awful. I talked about God’s love all the time, while carefully disregarding another aspect of His character—justice.
 
Thinking about how the segregationists had won didn’t make me angry—not like it did many others. I was too numb and grief stricken for that, especially that day. It was such a sad time, but I did wonder why God had allowed it to happen? It was a question I’m sure others were also asking.
 
Driving home, I knew I wanted my life to count for more than this. Being in the procession rejuvenated my desire to be part of Full Armor Assembly, by joining Brother Al in La Grande Boca.
Now in my mid-twenties, in many ways, I was still young and inexperienced. I didn’t understand how a martyr’s death could irreversibly change things. Reflecting back on those events decades later, Dr. King’s dream and vision for America has come true—at least much of it. The day of his funeral, it didn’t seem like this could possibly happen.
 
Governor Lester Maddox’s world has disappeared. Only a handful of people even remember who he was. Dr. King’s birthday is a national holiday.
 
Although the Governor was physically safe as the mourners passed by—surrounded by troopers carrying weapons—his world began to disintegrate soon thereafter. Few remember anything about segregation. Virtually nobody can enumerate the specifics of what Maddox’s generation of segregationists believed. Obviously, after three hour-long meetings with him, I can remember, but I never took what he had to say seriously. Nobody took Lester Maddox’s worldview seriously—at least, nobody sane.
 
Dr. King’s dream, by way of contrast, remains alive and powerful. In some ways, my experience at the funeral that day may have been one of the most powerful examples of victorious Christianity I’ve ever witnessed. It was victory coming from defeat, new life emerging from death. It was a transformational moment in time—something I’ll never forget—something that can never be taken from me, despite the fact that I didn’t even come close to the front of the line.
 
Despite this, I learned a great lesson. Love trumps hate every time, particularly when hate seems to have the upper hand. You can kill a man, but you can never kill his ideas—especially when millions embrace them. Internalizing what I had learned, I matured a little that day; I’m sure of it.
 
Later, when I walked into the house, Val caught my eye. When she looked at me, she stopped. She could tell something dramatic had happened. She didn’t say a word, but in our silent communication, both of us realized that moving to California was back on the table.

TRUMP DOSSIER: Here is my theory of what transpired:

 
Bruce Ohr, the number four man at the Department of Justice met with the British spy, Christopher Steele, and the head of Fusion GPS about the Trump dossier, which was essentially opposition research funded by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC. Ohr’s wife, Nellie, was working for Fusion GPS as their Russian expert. She made the opposition research on Trump look like it was real intelligence. When she was done, she sent it over to Andrew McCabe, the number two man at the FBI.
 
When McCabe got it, he and Agent Peter Strzok put the Bureau’s approval on it, as if it was FBI intelligence, and got Strozok’s mistress, Lisa Page, and FBI lawyer, to present it to the FISA Court to gain unlawful surveillance on the Trump campaign. It was their “insurance policy” to destroy Trump if he was elected President.
 
When Trump did win, this document, which is definitely not credible intelligence, was used to legitimize the Mueller investigation, and it worked. Because none of it was true, no Russian collusion has been found. In a last ditch effort to nullify the 2016 election of Trump, these miscreants are now trying to prove that the President is guilty of Obstruction of Justice.
 
All of this mischief happened under the leadership of Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, which includes Lynch’s secret meeting with Bill Clinton at the airport in Phoenix. It’s a subversive plot to have Trump impeached, tried, and thrown out of the White House.
 
It nearly worked, but now it is coming undone, as one revelation of misconduct by the DOJ and FBI are coming to light. Many people are complicit in this plot, and they all need to go to prison. The list includes, Lynch, Comey, McCabe, Ohr, his wife Nellie, Strzok and his adulterous whore, Lisa Page. This is just one thread of corruption among many, but it is a significant one and hard to follow. If I am wrong about any part of my theory, I will post a retraction, but I’m not wrong. I’m spot on.

COMMON SENSE: Many believe it is beneath the dignity of the President of the United States to get involved in matters as trivial as kneeling during the National Anthem at NFL games or instances of disrespecting the American flag, but I am not one of them. I believe it is one of the most important roles President Trump has. It has profound significance, and he is doing magnificently at it.
 
The flag and our anthem are powerful symbols of what makes Americans American. They bind us together as a people. They are the superglue that distinguishes us from others. As such, they have transcendent importance that produces patriotism, national loyalty, and American Exceptionalism. Without these symbols, our national identity would cease to exist.
 
That we now have a President who recognizes this and defends it, rather than apologizes for it, is one of the most important things President Trump does, and he is loved for taking such a strong stand.
 
Progressives do not see things the same way. Because they are globalists, patriotism is mocked and scorned. They champion a New World Order and not American nationalism, but their days are numbered. I guarantee it. We are taking our nation back, and nothing is going to stop us from doing so.

12573733_828304790628555_5483197664783316735_nCOMMON SENSE: French is the language of diplomacy and has been for half a millennium. It’s why there are so many French words and phrases that have come into the English language concerning foreign policy—words like rapprochement, fait accompli, and de facto/de jure. The cardinal rule of diplomacy is understatement. In diplomacy, to say an act by another nation is “unfriendly” is close to declaring war.
 
The Progressives, especially in the media, have been very critical of President Trump for using the term, “Fire and Fury,” when speaking out about our current crisis with Kim Jung-un of North Korea. Specifically, they are enraged because Trump’s words were well outside of normal, appropriate diplomatic language.
 
I disagree with the media’s assessment. The language of diplomacy will work with nearly all nation-states, but it is actually counterproductive with a rogue nation like North Korea.
 
Before SWorld War II, Winston Churchill was criticized by appeasers to Hitler for being bombastic and crude, but Churchill was right and Neville Chamberlain was wrong. In our current crisis, all that Kim Jung-un understands is brute force, and that is what Trump has given him. Neither Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, nor Barack Obama were willing to be confrontational. Consequently, the North Koreans have considered the USA to be weak—a paper tiger.
 
Trump, standing up for the American people, is calling their bluff. Kim Jong-un has two choices. Either he can attack and be destroyed, or he can backdown and lose face. Either way, his days are numbered. To be sure, this is brinkmanship diplomacy, but I do not believe it will lead to thermonuclear war. That’s the way I see it.

COMMON SENSE: On his staff, Special Investigator Robert Mueller has sixteen full time prosecutors. He has impanelled two separate grand juries, but there is no underlying crime for him to investigate. For one year, despite all of the clamoring of President Trump’s critics, there hasn’t been even one documentable crime. Nevertheless, in their bitterness, Trump’s enemies are determined to drive him out of office, even if it destroys the most stable democracy in the history of the world.
 
Just as bad, the Special Investigator was appointed because the President fired a corrupt Director of the FBI. In retaliation, Comey, sleaze that he is, leaked privileged information to the “New York Times,” for the express purpose of having an Independent Investigator appointed—all in vengeful retaliation for his legitimate firing.
 
Meanwhile, there has been no Special Investigator appointed to seek justice for those who were unlawfully unmasked by senior Obama administration appointees, which definitely is a crime. There hasn’t been a grand jury impanelled to investigate Hillary’s uranium deal with Russia, her pay-to-play access to the State Department, or her charitable foundation that gives less than 5% of its funds to worthy causes.
 
Despite all of this, Trump is making America great again. The economy is booming, due to Trump’s deregulation. Once again, under his leadership, our allies trust us, and our enemies fear us, which is the exact opposite to the record of the Obama administration.
 
Like Nehemiah, Trump has to rebuild the walls for our nation, while constantly having to fight off his enemies, but this is exactly what Trump is doing. He is being success for the same reason Nehemiah was. Trump has the favor of Almighty God. Because the Progressives do not, all they can do is chafe, just as Sanballat did toward Nehemiah twenty-five hundred years ago.

COMMON SENSE: Conservatives have a problem, and it’s a serious one. Instead of acting like we are the victors, we are constantly looking over our collective shoulders, wondering how the Progressive Leftwing Media and the corrupt Democrats are going to snatch our success away from us. Since we are used to losing, we are behaving like losers instead of like winners.
 
The Left doesn’t have the same problem, quite the contrary. Because they have won for so long, they assume they are going to win. It’s their right to win, and the only right we have is to complain about it.
 
For us to fulfill the agenda we fought so hard to create, we must start acting like winners and not like losers. To begin with, we need to stop whining about the media’s criticism. Let them lambast us all they want. We have the power, and our mandate is growing, not shrinking. Even with the dead weight of RINOs in Congress, deregulation is producing massive growth that will benefit all Americans, including Millennials.
 
As Obama’s disastrous legacy is being dismantled one piece at a time, we should be celebrating, while pushing steadily forward, rather than wondering how the Left is going to take it from us. Forget about them. Let them chafe. Bitterness is their drink, but it is not ours. Be strong and immovable. If you will do this, we will be able to solidify our gains.
