With Troops Away For Thanksgiving, Trump Makes Heartfelt Phonecalls

The President has shown nothing but respect for our armed services during his time in office, and today’s actions prove it.

With the “resistance” movement digging deep for any sort of ammunition to hurl at President Trump during this holiday season, it seems that nothing is off limits.

In their push to make the President some sort of monster, the left has thrown the book at the Commander in Chief, so to speak.  They’ve called him a racist.  They’ve accused him of being a Russian agent.  They’ve even insinuated that he might be romantically interested in his own daughter.  Nothing seems to cross the line for these cretinous cowards.

In an attempt to shame the President further, they’ve even taken to exploiting US troops, shaming the President for sending them to the border during the Thanksgiving holiday, as if the job performed by these brave men and women is beholden to that sort of fanciful celebration.

Next, the left will be telling us that Trump is evil because he didn’t give ER doctors and inner-city police the day off as well.

Trump, who is no slouch when it comes to touting the efficacy and ingenuity of our armed forces, reached out to military leaders today to thank them and to wish them a happy Thanksgiving.

For the second year in a row, President Trump held a Thanksgiving Day conference call with members of all five branches of the military to thank them for their service and check in on the status of their mission.

Speaking over the phone from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Trump told members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard that he and First Lady Melania Trump wanted to express their “profound gratitude.”

“Your courage truly inspires us,” Trump said.

After his call with the members of the military, Trump and the first lady plan to visit a Coast Guard station as they did last year.

While it is certainly unfortunate when these brave men and women must be away from home for the holidays, we must understand that they are receiving the support and dignity that they deserve from the Commander in Chief – unlike during previous administrations.

That’s more than the liberal left doles out when using the military as a prop for their anti-Trump tirades.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
