Former CIA clandestine officer, Robert David Steele, stated on “The Common Sense Show radio broadcast, that Donald Trump could go down in history as the greatest President ever…..but there are some obstacles.” The wisdom of his words escaped me in the immediate moment. I have always seen the potential in Donald Trump’s leadership and I have seen him pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat. However, the greatest President ever? In the aftermath of the false flag chemical weapons attack in Syria, and the President’s ill-advisedre action, I did not see it. This morning, and despite my hesitancy in supporting some of the President’s recent actions and questionable appointments, I must agree with Steele. However, I am going to provide a caveat to Steele’s bold statement later in the article.
When FDR was elected in the dark days of the Depression, he promised big changes in the “First Hundred Days”. Much of what FDR tried to do was struck down by the Supreme Court. When we compare what President Trump has done in his first 17 months, he has “out-accomplished” every President in American history. And he has done so in the face of a hostile media and the shadow Deep State government opposing his every move.
The following Trump accomplishments are not meant to be a complete and exhaustive list of the President’s many triumphs in his first 17 months in office. Rather, this is a cross-section of my perceptions of his many accomplishments in a very short amount of time.
- President Trump’s ability to bring the leader of North Korea to the peace table is remarkable and I am having trouble finding the words in expressing my admiration on how he has taken America from the brink of war, that would have cost millions of innocent lives, to one of peace. North Korea will soon have the ability to take their place among the nations of the world in terms of diplomatic relations and trade. Their people will economically benefit and the NK regime will lose their need to be militarily aggressive because heretofore, the military was NK’s only real industry. I agree with former President Carter, Donald Trump could and should win the Nobel Peace Prize.
- By bringing NK to the peace table, the President has neutered China’s main military stooge and henchman. China needs NK to be the bad guy so they don’t get their hands dirty. However, China is on the verge of having to do, and be exposed for, doing their own dirty work. Further, moving NK away from China, militarily, changes the balance of power in the region.
- I have looked high and low and I cannot find one instance of President Trump engaging in an act of racism, desite the media’s allegations to the contrary. In fact, my review of Trump’s actions in this area reflects a President, who cares deeply for providing opportunities for people who have had difficulty in the past. There is one thing that the liars from CNN and the propaganda artists from the Democratic Party cannot take away from Donald Trump, in 17 months, he has overseen the highest Black employment rate in American history. I am not proud of my nation’s bouts of racism (eg slavery and treatmentof Native Americans), however, this is now a different era and it is time to turn the page and embrace new opportunities for all people. What I am most proud of is that this President is not color blind. He sees the need for intervention in our inner cities with regard to economic intervention. He has quietly set up mentoring programs, at Federal expense, in our urban neighborhoods. He seeks to empower Black Americans, not keep them on the Democratic Party’s Plantation system of welfare which in the long term, kills individual initiative and hope. Trump is providing opportunity where there was none. Black voters support of Trump has grown from 11% to nearly 25%. I have had many Blacks write to me and thank me for supporting a spirit of empowerment among Black youth, in particular. Although I am appreciative of these comments, I have done nothing but observe. Trump is doing all the work.
- In the recent G-7 conference, Trump was outnumbered 6-1. Everyone from Merkel, to Marcon to terrorist George Soros, stated that Trump was interfering with the mandates of the New World Order. Many mainstream media outlets published the G6’s comments about Trump’s outdated populism views as a bad thing and that Trump needed to get on board with the new way of thinking. I was cheering for Trump’s defiance, as you should be cheering. Trump, while outnumbered, is facing the enemies of America and has won many important battles. Trump, by his actions, told the globalist G6 puppets of the New World Order “to go to Hell”. The G6 wants to collapse all national boundaries and they want the US to fund the installation of the New World Order. In other words, we Americans are supposed to pay for own demise and Trump said no. Through the elimination of the TPP and modifying other trade agreements, Trump is putting Americans back to work. Our manufacturing is being revived because of his trade policies while the rest of the world seeks to destroy our country, economically.
I have only scratched the surface of Trump’s accomplishments. Yet, as I previously stated there is one very big caveat that stands in the way of Trump being a great President. And that caveat is the fact that Trump comes nowhere close to controlling the narrative with the American people who are still in a political coma and believe everything they see on CNN.
For people who are 45 or younger, 70% of the news that they see, is digital. In other words, and very disturbingly to the Christian, conservative world view, Facebook, Google, Twitter and Google-owned YouTube, and their illegal censorship policies are being successful in keeping much of America in the dark.
In order to continue his accomplishments, Trump needs to be delivered a Republican House and Senate in the Midterm elections. This will require a free press. This is a pre-condition to the restoration of America. Trump’s continued successes have two major hurdles: (1) Rampant voter fraud led by millions of illegal aliens being allowed to vote, and vote Democratic; and, (2) The nearly total blackout of pro-Trump activism and successes in the media, particularily in the social media.
In short, the illlegal censorship policies practiced by social media, as described by Senator Ted Cruz, is the single biggest impediment to Making America Great Again. And unfortunately, President Trump seems oblivious to this point. In Part Two of this series, I will be outlining a plan of action to neuter social media and return the First Amendment to the people.
If we are not successful, a Hillary Clinton-type will be occupying the White House in 2020 and most of us knows exactly what that will mean.

Former President Bill Clinton stood by his handling of the Monica Lewinsky scandal on Sunday, defending his decision to fight impeachment and claiming he doesn’t owe the former White House intern a personal apology.
The 42nd president became visibly flustered when asked to address his past sexual relationship with Lewinsky under the lens of the Me Too movement during an interview with NBC News’ Craig Melvin.
Though Lewinsky has said her affair with Clinton was consensual, several other women accused Clinton of sexual misconduct during his time in office in the 1990s, which he has vehemently denied.
Despite the Me Too reckoning around sexual harassment and assault, Clinton said he wouldn’t have handled the allegations differently today.
“I don’t think it would be an issue because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts,” Clinton said. “If the facts were the same today, I wouldn’t … I think I did the right thing. I defended the Constitution.”
Lewinsky, who was 22 during the scandal, revealed in March that she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after the public shaming she experienced.
“I’m beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern,” Lewinsky wrote in Vanity Fair. “I’m beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot. (Although power imbalances — and the ability to abuse them — do exist even when the sex has been consensual.)”
Clinton on Sunday praised the Me Too movement as being “long overdue.” But when asked if he thinks differently or feels “more responsibility” in the wake of the movement, he said no.
“I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it,” Clinton said. “Nobody believes that I got of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”
He then listed several ways in which he’s progressed gender equality efforts, including adopting a sexual harassment policy and employing two women chiefs of staff during his time as governor of Arkansas in the 1980s.
″You are giving one side and omitting facts,” Clinton told Melvin, who then asked whether the former president felt he should privately apologize to Lewinsky.
“No,” Clinton said. “I’ve never talked to her, but I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry. The apology was public.”
“I dealt with it 20 years ago plus, and the American people, two-thirds of them stayed with me,” he continued. “And I’ve tried to do a good job since then with my life and my work.”
“But you didn’t apologize to her [Lewinsky]?” –@craigmelvin

“Do you feel that you owe her an apology?” –Melvin

Huge new study reveals that going vegan offers far greater benefits than quitting flying or driving an electric car.
Meat and dairy, delicious though they may be, are terrible for the planet. We’ve known about this for a while, but now a new study has completed an even more in-depth analysis of their environmental impact. Conducted by researchers from the University of Oxford and published in the latest issue of Science, the study concludes that avoiding meat and dairy products is the single most effective way to minimize one’s footprint on the world.
What makes this study different is its approach. The researchers worked from the ground up, assessing individual data from over 38,000 farms in 119 countries and analyzing 40 food products that represent 90 percent of what people eat worldwide. They “assessed the full impact of these foods, from farm to fork, on land use, climate change emissions, freshwater use and water pollution (eutrophication) and air pollution (acidification).”
What they found is that even the most sustainable form of meat and dairy production is considerably more damaging to the planet than the least sustainable form of vegetable and grain production. From the Guardian‘s report:
“The analysis also revealed a huge variability between different ways of producing the same food. For example, beef cattle raised on deforested land result in 12 times more greenhouse gases and use 50 times more land than those grazing rich natural pasture. But the comparison of beef with plant protein such as peas is stark, with even the lowest impact beef responsible for six times more greenhouse gases and 36 times more land.”
The study revealed that meat and dairy provide only 18 percent of calories and 37 percent of the protein that humans consume; and yet, they occupy 83 percent of agricultural farmland while generating 60 percent of the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. Within this context, it’s clear that switching to a vegan diet (or, at the very least, drastically reducing one’s consumption of animal products) is far more effective at helping the planet than any other green lifestyle decisions. Study author Joseph Poore told the Guardian:
“A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use. It is far bigger than cutting down on your flights or buying an electric car,” he said, as these only cut greenhouse gas emissions.
“Agriculture is a sector that spans all the multitude of environmental problems. Really it is animal products that are responsible for so much of this. Avoiding consumption of animal products delivers far better environmental benefits than trying to purchase sustainable meat and dairy.”
It is, however, a tough switch for many people to grasp, who may not know how to prepare meatless food, worry about potential dietary complications, or are attached to the deep cultural associations that go along with many meat-based dishes.
Certain measures could incentivize meat reduction or avoidance, such as labels revealing the environmental impact of individual foods; think of it as a nutritional label for the Earth. We could also pull a portion of the subsidies paid out to the U.S. livestock industry ($10.3 billion between 1995-2016) and reassign it to vegetable growers to make produce more affordable. Environmentally-damaging foods should be taxed according to their impact. Indeed, investors in the meat industry have already been warned of this likely change in the near future:
“If policymakers are to cover the true cost of livestock epidemics like avian flu and human epidemics like obesity, diabetes and cancer, while also tackling the twin challenges of climate change and antibiotic resistance, then a shift from subsidisation to taxation of the meat industry looks inevitable. Far-sighted investors should plan ahead for this day.”
Over the past four years of his research, Poore has cut animal products out of his own diet, affected by what he sees as a completely unsustainable way of eating. The question now is, how many of us can do that, too?
In a country where a majority of Americans (outside of California) elected President Donald Trump, it’s difficult to understand why the CEOs of most U.S. corporations bend over backward to Left-wing pressure.
One possible explanation is that CEOs, for the most part, run in social circles dominated by liberals who of course demand singularity of thought and opinion.
But one CEO has bucked the trend of bowing to Marxist extortionist demands in order to ‘make problems go away’ — which never really works but only encourages more Left-wing extortion.
In recent days, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor-turned-blackmailer David Hogg held a “die-in” at a local Publix grocery store near Parkland to ‘protest’ the chain’s donations of some $670,000 to Adam Putnam, a pro-NRA Florida Republican who’s running for governor.
In young Mr. Hogg’s world of Marxist-Leftism, the only people who are ‘allowed’ to participate in the political process are the like-minded; everyone else must be forced into silence or submission because in that world, there is no freedom of thought, freedom of speech, or freedom of expression if those thoughts, words and expressions don’t match progressive positions exactly.
Hogg announced the “die-in” — in which several students and their adult sheep supporters physically laid on the floor of the store making shopping difficult — via Twitter, where he went on to demand that Publix use its monetary expression of speech in a manner of his choosing: The student fund at his high school. Oh, and the price was $1 million. (Related: Shoppers step over bodies at Hogg-led Publix protests.)
That was too much for Publix CEO Todd Jones.
As The National Sentinel reports:
Jones has now told the father of a Parkland, Florida student who was killed in the Feb. 14 shootings the chain won’t be extorted — by Hogg or by anyone else.
Initially the plan was for Jones to make the donation on behalf of the food chain and then go to the Parkland, Fla., school to ‘meet with victims and their families’ — no doubt so he could be lectured and lambasted by an angry mob for daring to support a political candidate of his/the chain’s choice.
After stepping back and taking a 30,000-foot look at was had happened and what was developing, Jones had a change of heart.
The father, Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime Guttenberg, was killed in the Feb. 14 attack, was angry about Todd’s decision to renege on the payment and the face-to-face with families and victims.
He detailed on Twitter phone calls he says he had with Jones and how the CEO told him this week that the die-in had so politicized the situation the chain wouldn’t be making the donation.
In one tweet series he wrote of Jones, “He had the gall to say to me that because the die in made this so political that he would not be able to come down here to meet with the Parkland kids and families, as a reminder we are customers, and that Publix would not be making any donation to the victims fund. That is the right of Publix to make a decision like that, but I also have the right to call it out. To be clear, this became political because of the donation to Putnam and the lack of response from Publix until there was an outcry. The victims in Parkland did not make this political.”
‘The gall?’ The fact is, what happened at that school was massively politicized by Left-wing anti-gun opportunists before the dead were even buried.
Todd is doing what CEOs of other corporations should do — he refuses to be bullied and extorted.
Good. If more CEOs would take that stance, there’d be a lot less Left-wing bullying and a lot more freedom of speech and diversity of thought, which is as it should be.

It’s well-known that practicing yoga and meditation is good not just for physical health, but also for one’s sense of mental well-being. But what about the health benefits of practicing yoga — with goats?
Goat yoga has emerged as one of those quirkier ‘blends’ of yoga that seem to be popping up everywhere nowadays, from yogalates (or is it pila-yoga?) to HIIT yoga and aerial yoga. But according to Lainey Morse, photographer and founder of Goat Yoga, doing yoga with goats happily roaming around isn’t any different than other forms of animal-assisted therapy — think of the comfort that dogs and horses can bring to someone who’s depressed or suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. This is goat therapy, says Morse:
Goat yoga was created to be a therapy for people and provide a happy distraction for those suffering from stress, illness or depression. It really works!
© Lainey Morse / The Original Goat Yoga
Morse, who owns a farm and often found solace in spending time with her goats whenever she felt low, got the idea for goat yoga back in 2016 when she let a yoga instructor friend use her Oregon property for hosting a yoga class. Some cute and cuddly baby goats roamed in, nuzzling and climbing onto students, much to the delight of everyone. At that moment, goat yoga was born.
Even if one might be skeptical about combining exercise with animals that will undoubtedly get underfoot, the point is that these lovable creatures do get students to let their guard down a bit, all in the middle of a bucolic setting. Put all those elements together, and that in itself can be quite beneficial.

In any case, it appears the formula is working, as Morse’s business has since grown: classes often get full, and now there are also new locations in New York, California, Pennsylvania and more. There are a plethora of similar businesses offering goat yoga, but Morse — who spends three to four hours daily with her goats and hires a veterinarian to give them monthly checkups — cautions that prospective students should always ask some important questions about the welfare of the goats in the class prior to joining up:
I always tell people to vet the classes that they’re going to be sure that the goats are in their ‘forever home’ and loved. Make sure that the goats aren’t sold for meat or bred like crazy just to always have babies.
© Lainey Morse / The Original Goat Yoga
Morse’s aim is to transition her grown goats as long-term therapy animals that will not be eaten or mistreated. So far, goat yoga classes and goat-themed wine and beer-tastings are being offered, but Morse hopes to someday open some kind of therapeutic retreat or “goat hotel” on the farm:
The concept for this “goat hotel” idea is because I live on a farm and it is the most therapeutic experience — being out in nature with big expansive views with chickens strolling by and goats that want to hang out with you and follow you around. It’s just so relaxing and I hope I can share that with people someday.

A Phoenix woman is facing numerous charges after she allegedly sent more than 65,000 text messages to a man after a first date last summer, many of them containing bizarre threats.
Police arrested 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades on May 8 and charged her with threatening, stalking, harassment and failure to appear in court, according to The Washington Post.
Ades discussed the allegations on Thursday during a jailhouse interview with local CBS affiliate KPHO-TV.
“I felt like I met my soul mate and I thought we would just do what everybody else did and we would get married and everything would be fine,” Ades said, adding that she met the man on Luxy, an online dating site for verified millionaires.
Ades said she sent her date so many texts because “loving him selflessly brought me his information.”
According to police, many of the text messages Ades “selflessly” sent included anti-Semitic insults and threats like, “Don’t ever try to leave me … I’ll kill you … I don’t wanna be a murderer!”
Authorities say she texted the following:
“I hope you die … you rotten filthy Jew.”
“I’m like the new Hitler … man was a genius.”
“Oh, what I would do w/your blood … I’d wanna bathe in it.”
Authorities said Ades has been sending as many as 500 messages a day since last year, but her efforts to connect with her former date became more extreme last month.
That’s when she allegedly broke into the man’s home and took a bath in his tub. Police say she also showed up at his work pretending to be his wife.
Ades is due in court May 15 and will be represented by a public defender. She is being held without bond.
Although Ades acknowledged that sending 65,000 text messages seemed like a lot, she told KPHO she thought she’d sent more.
She added: “Love is an excessive thing.”

Whether you are recently vegan, plant-based, lactose intolerant, cutting back on animal products, or one of those vegetarians that says, “I just don’t think I could ever give up cheese,” then, this is for you! This may surprise you, but there are alternative ways to make cheese. Nuts, for example, make a great homemade cheese because of their creamy texture and high fat content. If you’re thinking that there is no way nut cheese could replace real cheese, then I challenge you to try at least one of the recipes below and then see what you think.
Here are the top 5 homemade vegan cheeses. Click on the headings for the links to the recipes.
This is one of my absolute favourites. Not only is it extremely easy to make, but it tastes incredible, and in my opinion is even better than the real thing! This cheese can be devoured with crackers or crostini, or even crumbled on top of pasta or pizza. It is truly versatile.
This recipe is awesome! You can actually use this mock ricotta pretty much anywhere you would use regular ricotta. If you’re thinking lasagna… so am I! Yum.
Holy Hannah! This recipe will satisfy every nacho craving bone in your body. You can eat it as a dip or skip the baking part and heat it up and drizzle it over some nacho chips. If you bring this to a party, I doubt anyone would even know it’s vegan. Fun experiment, anyone?
This is a great spreadable cheese that can be eaten with crackers or on sandwiches; it is also very simple to make.
Just imagine the possibilities. This cheese obviously works great for pizza, but you can also use it for grilled cheese sandwiches, baked pasta, and pretty well anywhere else you would eat mozzarella (like on a fork).
I hope this list gets you as excited as I felt when I first discovered that I could still have delicious tasting ‘cheese’ even after deciding to drastically cut back my animal product consumption. Please share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Trump made the remarks in reference to the FBI raids on the offices of attorney Michael Cohen on Tuesday. Many of Cohen’s private business records and correspondences were seized in the raid, ostensibly launched under the guise of a bank fraud investigation.
“Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!” Trump wrote.

Earlier in the week, Cohen’s own attorney, Todd Harrison, tried and failed to obtain a temporary restraining order to prevent investigators from sifting through the potentially “thousands of privileged communications.” Harrison was accused by prosecutors of employing delaying tactics, but US District Judge Kimba Wood ordered Cohen to appear in court Monday after three separate hearings on Friday.
In the aftermath of the US-led coalition strikes against Syria in the early hours of Saturday morning, many of Trump’s supporters expressed their sense of betrayal online, while many of his most vocal critics decried the military intervention as a simple case of ‘smoke and mirrors’ to detract from the multitude of domestic scandals, including the Mueller investigation, the FBI raids on Cohen’s offices, and the legal battle over the non-disclosure agreement with Stormy Daniels.
Just as the news cycle was returning to domestic affairs in the US, Trump returned to a few of his recent favorite targets including Hillary Clinton and James Comey, whom he described as a “slimeball” over the course of the past few days, employing his scattershot, stream-of-consciousness approach to social media management.
Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!

“Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!”
Trump’s initial use of the word “slimeball” to describe Comey in a tweet on April 13 triggered a 60,000 percent increase in online queries for the word according to Merriam-Webster, who define the word as meaning, “a morally repulsive or odious person.”
Former FBi Director Comey is due to give his first interview since being unceremoniously fired in May 2017 on Sunday evening. The interview is scheduled to take place just days before Comey’s memoirs are due to be published, which could well add to Trump’s growing list of woes. The full extent of Trump’s ire at Comey’s perceived betrayal was expressed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a press conference held Friday.
“The American people see right through the blatant lies of a self-admitted leaker. This is nothing more than a poorly-executed PR stunt by Comey to desperately rehabilitate his tattered reputation and enrich his own bank account pedalling a book that belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section,” Sanders told the press pool.
“Instead of being remembered as a dedicated servant in the pursuit of justice like so many of his other colleagues at the FBI, Comey will forever be known as a disgraced partisan hack that broke his sacred trust with the President of the United States, the dedicated agents of the FBI, and the American people he vowed to faithfully serve. One of the president’s greatest achievements will go down as firing director James Comey,” she concluded.
