What President Trump Is Doing For Disabled Veterans Proves He’s A Class Act

Excellent!

President Trump catches a lot of flack from folks, some on the right, most on the left, but regardless of where you stand on his performance in the White House, the one thing we can all agree on is that he loves the U.S. military.

He treats members of our armed services with total respect, a move that’s clearly illustrated by what he’s now doing for disabled veterans. Trump has signed an executive order that will forgive these folks’ student loan debt.

Classy.

“The debt of these disabled veterans will be completely erased,” President Trump said. “That’s hundreds of millions of dollars of student loans debt for our disabled veterans that will be completely erased.”

The executive order provides an “expedited” process for veterans to receive student loan forgiveness. Currently, only about 20 percent of eligible disabled veterans have applied for loan forgiveness under the current program, the Total and Permanent Disability Discharge, due to the complicated process.

The order will apply to about 25,000 disabled veterans, according to a tweet from the president. Those 25,000 have debt of about $30,000 each, on average.

“It was my honor to sign a Presidential Memorandum facilitating the cancellation of student loan debt for 25K of our most severely disabled Veterans,” President Trump wrote. “With today’s order, we express the everlasting love & loyalty of a truly grateful Nation. God bless our Vets, & God Bless America!”

After the Obama administration, it’s a total breath of fresh air to have someone in the Oval Office who doesn’t treat the men and women who defend our nation like they are the enemy of the state.

These folks have sacrificed more than any of us could ever imagine in order to ensure that our way of life is preserved for future generations and that we can live our lives without fear of terrorist attacks. This is a sacrifice that deserves to be honored.

If we won’t take care of our warriors, those who are willing to die for our principles, how can we take care of other citizens?

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

1984

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
