President Trump and First Lady Melania were greeted by the Welsh, Irish and Scots Guards’ bands.

    A beautiful couple, our President and First Lady, in a lovely setting filled with history and the legacy of Sir Winston Churchill fighting for our collective freedom not all that many years ago.

    No problem too deep that cannot be fixed if one has the will and the strength to keep moving forward.

    Britain, you could fix your problems if are so inclined….

        THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
        by Rudyard Kipling

        It was not part of their blood,
        It came to them very late,
        With long arrears to make good,
        When the Saxon began to hate.

        They were not easily moved,
        They were icy — willing to wait
        Till every count should be proved,
        Ere the Saxon began to hate.

        Their voices were even and low.
        Their eyes were level and straight.
        There was neither sign nor show
        When the Saxon began to hate.

        It was not preached to the crowd.
        It was not taught by the state.
        No man spoke it aloud
        When the Saxon began to hate.

        It was not suddently bred.
        It will not swiftly abate.
        Through the chilled years ahead,
        When Time shall count from the date
        That the Saxon began to hate.

        “This destiny does not tire, nor can it be broken, and its mantle of
        strength descends upon those in its service.” – Francis Parker Yockey,
        IMPERIUM

    From Breitbart:

    “First lady Melania Trump is wearing a yellow silk pleated chiffon dress by New York-based J. Mendel to a gala at Blenheim Palace.

    She paired the off-the-shoulder gown with floor-length pleated sleeves with matching silk pumps by Manolo Blahnik.”

    It’s good to have a President that doesn’t always look like he’s about to tall a lie. Clinton, Bushes and Obama always seemed to have that little child like semi-grin that makes you think of a child who’s trying to pull a fast one. I also think that not feeling compelled to keep his jacket buttoned all the time helps to remove the “air of superiority” that accompany so many politicians.
    That dress that she’s wearing, few could pull that off.

    http://www.newsweek.com/british-government-determined-donald-trump-not-meet-nigel-farage-uk-visit-1006000

    The British government is anxious for President Donald Trump not to meet ally and Brexit champion Nigel Farage during his visit to the U.K. next week.

    Farage, former leader of the populist United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), told British newspaper the Daily Telegraph that he had been informed the British government did not want Trump meeting him “through the normal protocol channels.”

    O M G
    FLOTUS completely outclassed every other female! And there’ more to the backstory I think: based on my studies in costume history:
    The unbelievable dress and attached floor length that FLOTUS wore is a DIPLOMATIC COUP. The design of her gown and cape is based on European Court designs of the 17th and 18th centuries: off the shoulder, some decollete exposed, bare arms with attached cape sleeves, cinched in at the waist.
    Her incredible gown is the type that a visiting Princess or Queen would wear to the first appearance at the Court where she would be visiting.
    And you betcha that FLOTUS knew exactly what this first appearance gown would have to look like and the underlying message: Melania Trump is the equivalent of European royalty: NOT a “glamorous appendage” to President Donald Trump.
    This, of course, would all be lost on Teresa May. But NOT on the personages, especially those connected with the Royal Family, who will see FLOTUS in this gown. Believe it.
