When will country prevail over political party?
That is my question after watching the grueling, emotional hours yesterday when Donald Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen went to Washington and appeared on our electronic screens worldwide.
Asking this question scares me. Worse, the answers shake me to my core.

President Trump is about to travel to Vietnam to meet with North Korea’s Kim Jung Un. The purpose is to further seek accommodation with North Korea regarding its nuclear weapons program.
They have met once, and despite what critics have been saying, the fact remains that Kim has not launched any missiles, nor has he tested nuclear devices since that meeting nearly one year ago. That is a far better arrangement from what occurred over the past decade.
Today, President Trump is in Hanoi, Vietnam negotiating with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. This is their second summit, which gives the world a historic chance for the removal of nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula. It signifies the tremendous progress that has been achieved in a very short period of time. Until recently, this dictator was testing nuclear weapons and building nuclear facilities. He was also holding Americans hostage. Today, the hostages have been released, the nuclear testing and expansion has stopped and remains of American soldiers killed in the Korean War have been returned to the United States.
According to CNN, we might be at the end of the Mueller investigation line, assuming the credibility of sources familiar with the plans.
CNN reported today:
With the confirmation of William Barr as the new U.S. Attorney, there is hope that the Department of Justice (DOJ) can regain some of its sterling reputation that has been lost in the last few years.
Once viewed as a fair and respected law enforcement agency, the DOJ is now seen as a hotbed of anti-Trump Democratic Party activism. In the 2016 election,The Hill reported that an astounding 97% of DOJ employee contributions were given to Hillary Clinton, while Donald Trump received only 3%.
By the way, did you know that the United States has been suffering from conditions so horrific, so frightening, so urgent, that the President of the United States has saved the day by calling a national emergency. All this, so he could get his funds to build his border edifice.
After making that declaration, he went to play golf for the weekend at Mar Lago in Florida.
Yesterday, our federal debt reached $22 trillion, a new record for our country. Since President Trump took office in January of 2017, our debt has increased over $2 trillion. During the administration of President Obama, the debt increased from $10.6 trillion to $19.9 trillion. Thus, the national debt has more than doubled in 10 years as it is increasing more than $1 trillion per year.

Resistance: The refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument.
America has now reached the point where it needs a third party because what we have is not working. President Washington’s warnings about the evils of partisanship have come to roost. Democrats are incapable to accepting defeat in Presidential election, so they resist. Republicans lack the ability to lead.
After a very successful State of the Union address Tuesday night, the latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll shows President Donald Trump with an impressive 49% approval rating. This shows a continual improvement over the last few days, undoubtedly impacted by a speech that was well received. The ratings for the President’s speech exceeded last year and were significantly higher than the ratings for President Obama’s speech at a similar point in his presidency.
According to CNN and CBS polls, the speech received the approval of 76% of Americans. In fact, it was so persuasive that 72% of Americans, according to the CBS poll, agreed with the President’s comments on immigration, one of the most hotly contested issues in the country.
It sounded like it came out of a movie plot. In the early morning hours, federal agents stormed a home to make an arrest. They had to be after some major drug lord or a sought-after terrorist. There were 29 agents all wearing military gear and carrying weapons. High powered assault rifles were involved. Seventeen SUVs and two armored vehicles surrounded the home with lights flashing and sirens blaring. It must be a really dangerous dude.
As predicted, a major drug bust takes place at the southern border and the Donald Trump relief force and the build-a wall-or-else-crowd goes into high gear.
Just read it on twitter.
From Bill O’Reilly to members of the Freedom Caucus to the MAGA HAT crusaders--the cry has been very succinct: If the smuggling of drugs that could kill 57 million people is not a national emergency, then what is?
For those keeping score, the American Foreign policy and intelligence Super Bowl reveals that the President's Intel Chiefs are not willing to be benched as to the way they see the world. However, the President hired them all and can fire them all without cause. And he can publicly insult their individual and collective intelligence as he has done to others in his administration who have disagreed with him.
President Donald Trump has announced the settlement of the longest government shutdown in American history.
Now, it is time to get serious.
Trump was blasted by his base for accepting a prior deal on the wall. Now, he’s being sliced and diced by the same folks
To many of the radical leftists who inhabit the interconnected worlds of the media, Hollywood and the Democratic Party, the red hat with the words “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) has become the new similar of racism. According to left wing activist and actress Alyssa Milano, wearing the MAGA hat is akin to wearing a “white hood.”
Thus, supporting Donald Trump is the same thing as belonging to a terrorist group like the KKK. Never mind that the MAGA slogan was also used by former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, it is now incredibly racist because it was resurrected by Donald Trump. To the left, he is the epitome of evil.
