Free Preview – TRUMP: MAN PHENOMENON PRESIDENT

It is only fitting that I begin this book by thanking God and those great patriots before me. It was God and they who breathed life into the Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791, and the First Amendment of the Constitution which guarantees my right to free speech as cited below:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or the prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Compliments of Hillsdale College).

By the time this book is in print, there will be a plethora of other books about President Donald John Trump the 45th President of the United States of America. Since I’m not an insider and/or special friend of our phenomenal president, I’m convinced that my perspective as an outside citizen just might make a contribution to the understanding of this man, phenomenon, and president. Though great care has been given to objectivity, it is impossible for me to separate myself from personal preference. Thus far, most of the books with which I’m familiar have been authored by close associates, colleagues, friends, television hosts, or even enemies/adversaries of the POTUS. Though I’ve never even had an opportunity to shake his hand, and probably never will, I often feel, think, and react as though I’ve known him most of my life. President Trump has a unique way of connecting with people. He is a businessman and deeply committed entrepreneur and so am I; however, I only wish I’d been one-one-thousandth as successful as he. Entrepreneurially, he has had some wins and losses. By the early 1990’s, he had lost a significant amount of money, but soon bounded back. That is normal for anyone familiar with being an entrepreneur. At this point in time, I’ve only seen him in person once. My wife, Grace, and I waited for hours to see him at one of his early rallies in Las Vegas, Nevada February, 22, 2016 at the Southpointe Arena, which held about 8,000 people, and it was packed! Before that night, we had watched Donald Trump at every televised rally in which he participated. Many rallies we viewed online because Right Side Broadcasting Network would pan the crowds of full and overflowing event centers, while other big networks only kept the cameras trained on President Trump. To date, I have watched every rally he has sponsored. Early on, Fox News Corporation televised events, but soon stopped carrying Trump rallies wire-to-wire. To be generous, it could have been because others would have bellowed for equal time.

Prior to that, I/we watched him and Melania, our future and beautiful First Lady, take that famous escalator ride in Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 in which he made his stunning declaration to run for the presidency. Until then, I had essentially ignored Donald Trump. Of course, since I’m a little older than he and also very current, I knew who he was, but I never really took him seriously. In fact, I’ve never even watched an episode of The Apprentice, his reality TV show. From my vantage point, at the time, he was just another privileged, garash rich guy who had a voracious ego to feed, but that night when he declared his candidacy, things changed. What he said was a lot of what I was thinking and expressing to my friends and neighbors. It was so refreshing to see a person running for the presidency who was incredibly candid and sincere. Not since Ronald Reagan had I connected with a presidential candidate in such a way. I remember getting up from the couch, pointing at the television, and saying to my wife, “He will be our next president.” I also knew that he would have to defeat 16 other primary challengers to win it, but I had no doubt about who the victor would be and no doubt that he would defeat Hillary Clinton, even though the Establishment on both sides of the aisle, the media, K Street, Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce, globalists, Deep State, and others wanted nothing to change in America. It was obvious that the status quo was in their best interest—not that of American citizens.

President Trump and I are at opposite ends of the spectrum from a background panorama. He was born in New York City to wealthy parents, and I was born in the country into abject poverty in Doctors Inlet, Florida. Yet, he and I seem to have an implacable patriotic penchant. He nor I ever served in the military, though I tried on three separate occasions to become a member of our armed forces but was turned down because of either health or age reasons. I did, however, work for the Department of Defense for a total of 14 years as a civilian. In fact, I was one of the Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara’s, first Civilian Substitutes (CivSub) for a member of the United States Navy in 1968, serving on an admiral’s staff. This program was designed to send more navy personnel to Viet Nam by replacing sea-going sailors, who were on shore duty, with civilians. President Trump, apparently, received college deferments and had bone spurs which kept him from the armed services in Viet Nam. Now, as president, he is commander-in-chief of all of our mighty military.

Ultimately, as a boy, Donald Trump became a Captain in the New York Military Academy, while as a boy, I couldn’t even afford to join the Boy Scouts because we had to purchase uniforms we couldn’t afford, but I still built my own little fort anyway! I watched President Trump’s reaction on television, when in a processional, the New York Military Academy marched by, and I saw great pride on his face as the stars and stripes gently waved in the nightly breeze. This military school had a significant impact upon him as a youngster. It’s as though the seeds of patriotism had begun to germinate. President Trump takes great pride in the flag of the United States of America. He has a love affair with our country. “America first!” He proclaims at rally after rally all over America. Many of us out here in the breadth and width of this sovereign nation have hungered for those words for decades, not because we don’t care about other nations and peoples, but because we love our country first and most. Who do you love first and the most, my family or yours? America is one large family, and we must fully embrace its uniqueness, because we also must either make America great again (MAGA) and/or keep America great (KAG).

The intent of this writing is to more fully understand and appreciate President Donald Trump and what he has done and is doing for our home—America. I am of the opinion that only God can keep this man focused, upright, and on point, because he is and has been assailed 24/7 by the forces of evil from the very beginning. No man or woman could withstand this relentless onslaught of depravity unless there is divine support and purpose. With certitude, I am confident that believers such as Pastor Robert Jeffries of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and 2016 presidential candidate, as well as the inimitable Lou Dobbs of the Fox Business Channel, among many others, concur with this muse and contemplation. Just look at the principalities and powers which have stood in staunch and defiant opposition to President Trump, but he presses on incessantly and indefatigably without regard or fear of their threats and attempts to intimidate.

Over the past couple of years or so, pundits, TV hosts, speakers, columnists, bloggers, and many others have referred to this defiance and hatred of President Trump as the Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), but this descriptor is inadequate, because there is something far more sinister and nefarious driving this insanity. Pure unadulterated evil is pouring over this country and the world like a mammoth bucket of black blistering tar hanging from the Moon.

Just look at the savagery in our own country and gaze upon the darkness as it creeps across our land like a deadly fungus. What about the senseless killings at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California on a Sunday the 28th of July in 2019? Or, how about the mass murders in El Paso, Texas on Sunday August 4, 2019, which only hours later was followed up by more mass murders in Dayton, Ohio? In all of these cases, there were three different young male killers that were engulfed by darkness and evil who were armed to the teeth and lurched about with reckless abandon, shooting unarmed, innocent human beings with long guns as though they were targets at a shooting range. If this is not evil, evil does not exist. What did the leftist lunatics from the radical Democrat Party of hate do? They blamed President Trump rather than mourn for the families of those murdered by crazed Satanic killers. All of the so-called democrat candidates, screeching for the nomination of the party for the presidency, pointed fingers of blame at the president. This is what these anti-Americans do best is blame, blame, blame without even considering what can be done to prevent this insane carnage which is becoming commonplace in America. The probability that the absence of God in the public square just might have something to do with the rule of Satan in the hearts and minds of these barbarians. These are soulless creatures who roam about in search of prey just waiting for the right moment to strike, which is usually in hunting grounds called “gun free zones”, because they are cowards and the only ones with guns. Liberal lunacy has created this moronic thinking, and if blame must be placed, let’s lay it at the feet of delusional liberals.

Only a fool would not recognize the war on Christianity. How can anyone refute reality? There were 875 Catholic Churches in France, alone, in 2018, which were vandalized or burned by secularists and Muslims. Twelve of those churches were in Paris. The world watched the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral on television in early 2019; even though, the powers that be did their best to convince the world that it was just an innocent accident. What about the murdering of Christians in Sri Lanka in April of 2019? That bomb blast killed 253 and wounded 500! Obviously, there is a war on Christianity!

Now, to the media, which has not let up with its negativity and venal attacks. Key relentless television networks and newspapers hammer away day in and day out with negative, vile, unscrupulous, vitriolic, baseless stories. CBS, ABC, NBC, MSMBC, and CNN, along with the New York Times and the Washington Post have railed against President Trump as though he is incarnate Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Charles Manson all rolled into one. In other words, the pictures they paint are of a monster. They have shown complete disregard for this man as a human being and President of the United States. The so-called free press should have a new moniker—rogue arbiters. They fill their “newscasts” and “news pages”, not fit for the canary’s cage, with sanctimonious inuendo, jealousy, animus and enmity. The words—they have reached a new low–should not be uttered again, because these rogue arbiters are regurgitating salacious bottom feeders who will continue to lie and create fake news. You may be assured that this was never the intent of the Founders of this great republic who stood fast and mightily for freedom of the press and free speech.

Let’s not forget the D.O.A. fraudulent Mueller Report and “investigation” which dragged on for more than two years, which was a witch hunt that cost the American taxpayer an estimated $40 million, not to mention wasted precious time, personal inconvenience, and the lives destroyed by this unbridled lawless attempt to try to find something, anything illegal that President Trump just might have even contemplated. It is and has always been about the vilification and deposing of a duly elected president. According to Robert Mueller, Special Counsel, William Barr, Attorney General, and the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, there was no collusion and no obstruction of justice by President Trump. Also, let’s not forget who illegally and unethically appointed a conflicted Mueller in the first place—Rod Rosenstein who was acting as the Attorney General while Jeff Sessions quivered like a cowardly lion out of sight while hiding under his desk. It’s incredulous that the entire “investigation” was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton, who lost the election of 2016, but that little matter was totally ignored by Mueller and his minions. This was operation research, and in this case, manufactured “truth”. In one of President Trump’s tweets, he asked, “How can a republican president be charged with crimes committed by democrats?” The answer to this question is simple. The left has been taught to accuse the right of what they actually do, and since the media are, for the most part, leftists, they carry the water for the delusional Democrat Party.

Justification for the so-called investigation was all founded on an unverified and salacious Russian dossier for which a former British spy, Christopher Steele, prepared for Hillary Clinton. Then, it was embraced by a secret court called a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act—FISA–court which authorized the spying on of American citizens, such as Carter Page and George Papadopoulos. Americans are no longer as free as they were before September 11, 2001, and it appears we will never be again. We’ve allowed the politically powerful to manipulate and force citizens to surrender more and more freedom. It is still confounding that this entire political chicanery actually occurred, because everything was based on prevarications and intentional fraud. More specifically, the dossier was a document of fiction. Yet, this secret court authorized a total of four FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, and the fourth FISA was signed by the acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. President Trump’s enemies such as the socialistic/communistic Democrat Party melted down after the Mueller Report failed to support their irrational thinking and continue, frenetically, to search for another faux issue with which to harass, hammer, and harangue, President Trump, while the nation goes wanting. Their puerile and despicable behavior of stamping their little political feet is nauseous and reeks of the smell of brimstone.

From a personal perspective, it’s important for me to make that delightful, joyous, and historical journey back in time to the presidential election of November 8, 2016. Remember that? That’s the election Donald Trump could never win. Practically all the pollsters, apparatchiks, and CNN commentators, among many others, declared over and over that there was no way forward for Donald Trump to reach the magical number of 270 electoral votes in order to win the presidency. They were right, because he actually won 306 electoral votes! We delight in President Trump’s recitation of these events at his rallies. Hillary Clinton and the status quo went down in flames! By the time the “final” numbers were tallied, it was about 2:30 a.m. Pacific Coast Time on the 9th of November, when we lived in the small Community of Desert Springs in Laughlin, Nevada. Gracie and I did what true conservatives might do. We went out into the middle of our empty, dark, dead-end street, and danced under the moonlight to this historic victory. I am confident, once again, that President Trump will be even more victorious in 2020. Now, he has an incredible, impressive, and historic record of achievements—not just promises. This also means that Gracie and I will not have to stay up into the wee hours of the morning to see the final results so that we can dance victoriously in the street.

Lastly, and most importantly, this book is about such challenging and massive real-world issues, in which President Trump is deeply committed and embroiled, as illegal immigration, health care, the economy, international trade, international relations, energy, infrastructure, the Second Amendment, the abortion industry, the Supreme Court and other federal judges, promises made, promises kept, and other great deeds, often ignored, or generally unknown by the public, for which President Trump is directly responsible.
