The White House and President Trump
On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, insteadhe donated it to an amazing cause! (see below)The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million.
Here are some other key findings:
There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies. Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
However, it’s what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking! (Except left wing media of course)
Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It’s so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!
Oh, and where’s the media coverage of this? Oh that’s right, they don’t cover anything good that the President does.
SUBJECT: EVANGELICAL MEETING – PLEASE READ EVANGELICAL MEETING – IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN_DEAR FRIENDS, A GREAT READ. PLEASE SOAK IT IN AND FORWARD TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN ON YOUR EMAIL LIST. TRUMP WAS NOT THE FIRST CHOICE FOR MANY — BUT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP ELECT THE ALTERNATIVE? YOU MIGHT ENJOY HEARING FROM SOMEONE WHO WAS “INSIDE THE ROOM”: THIS IS FROM BILL PERKINS OF COMPASS INTERNATIONAL. PLEASE VOTE IN NOVEMBER. NOT VOTING IS A VOTE. TRUMP MEETS WITH EVANGELICAL LEADERS. THIS WAS A FASCINATING DAY IN NEW YORK CITY AS OVER 1000 CHRISTIAN LEADERS FROM ALL OVER THE U.S. GATHERED TO ASK DONALD TRUMP TOUGH SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS POLICYS AND INTENTIONS, SHOULD HE BE ELECTED POTUS. THE EVENT ORGANIZERS ORIGINALLY REQUESTED DALLAS, TEXAS AS A MIDDLE-OF-THE-NATION LOCATION TO HOLD AND GET SOME PRIVATE TIME WITH TRUMP, HOPING TO ATTRACT SOME 200-300 NATIONAL CHRISTIANLEADERS. BUT THE ONLY OPENING ON TRUMP’S SCHEDULE WAS IN NYC FOR 30 MINUTES, 30 DAYS OUT. SO THEY TOOK IT!! A SCREENING COMMITTEE, SCOURING THE INTERNET, SENT OUT INVITATIONS TO ABOUT 1000 CHRISTIAN LEADERS. BECAUSE THE HIGH EXPENSE OF FLYING INTO AND STAYING IN NYC, AND THE DATE LESS THAN 30 DAYS AWAY, THEY RESERVED A ROOM FOR ONLY 100 PEOPLE AT THE MARRIOTT MARQUIS IN TIMESSQUARE. EACH PERSON WHO ACCEPTED THE INVITATION THEN HAD TO BE VETTED, AND ULTIMATELY OK’D BY THE SECRET SERVICE. ONCE CLEARED, YOU WERE NOTIFIED BY PHONE. I GOT TWO SETS OF PHONE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY WORK WITH COMPASS AND WHEN FINALLY APPROVED, HAD 10 DAYS TO MAKE PLANS. (I’M SURE I WAS AT THE END OF THE LIST!!) BUT DESPITE RECEIVING THE LATE NOTICES, THE RESPONSE TO ATTEND WAS OFF THE CHARTS. ALMOST EVERYONE THEY INVITED ACCEPTED THE INVITATION. SOME WHO WERE LEFT OFF THE ORIGINAL LIST APPARENTLY LOBBIED FOR INCLUSION. ULTIMATELY THERE WERE OVER 1000 WHO HASTILY CHANGED THEIR SCHEDULES TO ATTEND. THE SECURITY WAS TIGHT FOR THE 7 AM OPENING FOR REGISTRANTS. I STOOD IN LONG LINES FOR AN HOUR, PASSING THROUGH THREE CHECK POINTS BEFORE FINALLY GETTING THROUGH SECRET SERVICE SECURITY. ONCE I FINALLY GOT TO MY SEAT AT MY TABLE. I WAS ASTONISHED TO BE SITTING NEXT TO A SHARP AS A TACK AUBURN GRAD WHO IS MARRIED TO ANOTHER AUBURN GRAD AND LIVES IN VESTAVIA, ALABAMA WHERE I GREW UP. SHE’S A REGISTERED LOBBYIST WHO WORKED FOR GEORGE BUSH WHEN SHE FIRST GOT OUT OF AUBURN, WAR EAGLE TO THAT ONE! ALSO AT MY TABLE WAS A CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE FROM NORTH CAROLINA, A CHRISTIAN TV STATION OWNER FROM FLORIDA AND THE CHAIRMAN OF THEBOARD OF THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THERE WERE ABOUT FOUR PAST STEELING CONFERENCE SPEAKERS IN THE ROOM, THAT I NOTICED. PROBABLY MORE I DIDN’T SEE. AFTER OPENING REMARKS BY THE CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS, JERRY FALWELL JR. SPOKE, THEN FRANKLIN GRAHAM. BOTH ATTESTED TO THE AUTHENTICITY OF DONALD TRUMP. GEORGE BARNA, THE POLLING GUY, SPOKE. USING SEVERAL CHARTS HE SHOWED THAT TRUMP HAS A GENUINE PATH TO VICTORY IF CHRISTIANS VOTE. BUT IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, SOME 40 MILLION EVANGELICALS STAYED HOME AND THAT WAS LITERALLY THE DIFFERENCE IN THE ELECTION. THEN BEN CARSON SPOKE FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES. HIS EASY AND SOFT SPOKEN STYLE EASILY WARMED THE CROWD. HE REFERRED TO THE FACT THAT TRUMP HAD A BAD THREE WEEKS, AND CLINTON HAD A GOOD THREE WEEKS AND YET THE RACE IS STILL CLOSE, VIRTUALLY TIED. BUT HIS MAIN POINT WAS THATTRUMP IS A PROVEN LEADER. HE’S CERTAINLY NOT A POLITICIAN WHO’S ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT OFFENDING SOMEONE. AND THAT’S WHAT WE NEED, ALEADER, NOT A POLITICIAN. NEXT CAME HUCKABEE, WHO MODERATED THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN THE CROWD AND TRUMP. BEFORE INTRODUCING TRUMP, HE MADE THE POINT THAT WE’RE NOT VOTING ON A PASTOR OR A POPE, BUT RATHER A LEADER. A LEADER WHOIS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE PAST IN ORDER TO CHANGE THINGS FROM THE STATUS QUO. SO THE DAY WAS SET THAT THIS WAS NOT ABOUT TRUMP’S CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE OR VIRTUES, BUT RATHER WHERE TRUMP WANTS TO TAKE THE COUNTRY, AND WHERE WE’RE HEADED IF TRUMP IS NOT ELECTED. THE BIGGEST CONCERN CENTERED AROUND THE SUPREME COURT. THE NEXT PRESIDENT WILL APPOINT ANYWHERE FROM ONE TO FIVE MEMBERS. THE SECOND AMENDMENT, FREEDOM OF RELIGION, PRAYER IN PUBLIC PLACES, ETC., WILL LIKELY BE SETTLED BY THE NEXT PRESIDENT’S APPOINTEES. WHEN DONALD TRUMP WAS INTRODUCED, HE DIDN’T SPEAK FROM THE PODIUM BUT RATHER SAT NEXT TO HUCKABEE ON THE STAGE FIELDING QUESTIONS FROM THE CROWD FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES. SO MUCH FOR THE 30 MINUTES ORIGINALLY ALLOTTED. THERE WAS NO PRESS ALLOWED INSIDE, SO IT WAS JUST TRUMP AND THE CHRISTIAN LEADERS TALKING BACK AND FORTH. THE REALLY BIG CHRISTIAN LEADER NAMES GOT TO DIRECTLY ASK TRUMP QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR— I.E. PEOPLE LIKE JAMES DOBSON, RALPHREED, TONY PERKINS, ETC. MOST FELT RELIGIOUS LIBERTY WAS AT STAKE WITH THIS ELECTION, SAYING THAT IF THE POLICIES OBAMA HAS SET IN PLACE ARE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE, CHRISTIANS WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE NO FREEDOM TO WORSHIP. HARASSMENT OF CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS WOULD CONTINUE. THROUGH IT ALL, TRUMP ANSWERED EACH OF THEIR QUESTIONS WITH SOLID ANSWERS, BOTH ACKNOWLEDGING THE PROBLEM CITED AND HOW HE WOULD TAKECARE OF THE PROBLEM. HE SEEMED TO BE GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUTCHANGING THE DIRECTION OF THE NATION. HE ADDRESSED MANY SUBJECTS INCLUDING THE SUPREME COURT, NATIONAL DEFENSE, BORDER PROBLEMS, CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION, HIS PRO-LIFE STANCE, ISRAEL, HEALTHCARE, EDUCATION. AND ENERGY. I WOULD SAY THAT MOST OF THOSE WHO ATTENDED WHO WERE NOT SURE IF THEY WOULD VOTE FOR HIM, LEFT CONVINCED OF HOW MUCH IS AT STAKE IN THIS ELECTION, IF TRUMP IS NOT ELECTED. AFTER TRUMP LEFT, TO A STANDING OVATION, MORE QUESTIONS WERE TAKENFROM THE AUDIENCE ADDRESSED TO A PANEL OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS. THINGS LIKE THE WEAKENING OF THE MILITARY, CHRISTIAN BUSINESS RIGHTS, ETC., WERE DISCUSSED AT LENGTH. I HAVE TO SAY, WE PRETTY MUCH ALL CAME AWAY THINKING THAT IF CLINTON, OR ANY DEMOCRAT, IS ELECTED, THE PATH THIS NATION IS CURRENTLY ON WILL CONTINUE AND WILL LEAD TO DISASTER. IF WE DON’T TURN THE SHIP NOW, WE’RE HEADED TO BE LIKE SOCIALIZED EUROPE, RELIGION PUSHED OUT OF EVERYDAY LIFE AND A FINANCIAL DISASTER GETTING WORSE BY THE MONTH. EVEN REACHING PROBLEMS LIKE WHAT’S GOING ON IN ARGENTINA, WHERE THEY ARE CURRENTLY, LITERALLY FIGHTING FOR FOOD, IS NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES. IT’S THAT BAD. DON’T THINK IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE. AT THE END OF THE DAY WAS PRAYER. WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS, THE ENTIRE ROOM KNELT ON THE FLOOR IN CORPORATE PRAYER FOR OUR NATION. I TOOKTHE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A QUICK PICTURE OF THAT SIGHT, SOME 1000 PEOPLE IN THEIR SUNDAY CLOTHES ON THE GROUND PRAYING TOGETHER. WHO KNOWS WHERE THIS WILL LEAD. MAYBE . . . .SO, THE BOTTOM LINE FOR ME IS THAT I LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND OUR CONSTITUTION MORE THAN I DISLIKE TRUMP’S ANTICS AND EGO. HE WILL ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION THAT GODLESS LIBERALS AND THEIR PROPAGANDA MEDIA HAVE LED THIS NATION. WITH TRUMP WE HAVE A CHANCE. WITH CLINTON WE HAVE NO CHANCE. BE THANKFUL WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE AND VOTE THIS FALL FOR TRUMP. PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY IN GENERAL AND OUR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN PARTICULAR DEPEND ON EVERY CHRISTIAN BEING REGISTERED TO VOTE — AND VOTING. ONE FLAG, ONE LANGUAGE, ONE NATION UNDER GOD!

The war started in the 7th century and lasted through the 17th century.
I would contend it never stopped but historically the facts below are correct.
This is why I choke when I hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years or even 30 years as recently stated by Leon Panetta .
If the latest batch of murders, beheading, and killing of innocent Christians has shocked you, maybe you should read this compilation of historical facts about the hatred of Muslims.
This is all factually (and historically) correct – and verifiable:
In 732 A.D. the Muslim Army, which was moving on Paris, was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
In 1571 A.D. the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lapano.
In 1683 A.D. the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.
This crap has been going on for 1,400 years and half of the politicians don’t even know it.
If these battles had not been won, we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non-existent; Judaism certainly would not exist.
Reflecting: A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. Pause a moment and reflect back. These events are actual events from history. They really happened! Do you remember?
1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
2. In 1972, at the Munich Olympics , athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.
3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach. Shortly after landing it was blown up by Muslim males.
4. In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome, with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
6. During the 1980 ‘s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70-year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.
10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.
12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by – you guessed it – a Muslim male. (Plus two other American journalists were just recently beheaded).
16. In 2013, the Boston Marathon Bombing resulted in 4 Innocent people, including a child, being killed plus 264 people injured by Muslim males.
No Obama, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screener’s will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.
So, ask yourself “Just how stupid are we???” Absolutely No Profiling! They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the Obama’s security detail, 85-year-old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss,
BUT… leave Muslim Males alone lest we be guilty of profiling.
Ask yourself, “Just how stupid are we? “Have the American people completely lost their minds or just their Power of Reason??? As the writer of the award winning story ” Forrest Gump ” so aptly put it, “Stupid Is As Stupid Does. “Each opportunity that you have to send this to a friend or media outlet… Do It!
OR JUST SIT BACK, KEEP GRIPING, AND DO NOTHING. AS OBAMA SAID IN HIS BOOK NOTHING SOUNDS SO BEAUTIFUL AS THE MUSLIM EVENING PRAYERS FROM THE TOWER. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
