    It seems impossible to love this man more than I do.

    He never quits, he just keeps going, and he constantly puts himself in position to win.

    Never give up. That’s POTUS’ mantra.

    Thank you, Lord, for this president. We needed him now.

      “constantly puts himself in position to win” = staying in the game as the Texas judge brought the hammer down on BarryCare.

      Many people would feel self-pity and fold up if they had to go through what POTUS goes through day to day. It’s easy to just quit, or join the evil empire.

      He won’t do that. He just hangs in, even if by the skin of his teeth, and waits for the wind to change direction and be at his back.

      This guy is the essence of America. The Icon. The Avatar. He IS America.

      MAG so beautifully stated! The man loves us and our country. It is what drives him every single day. The love he has for our military is what I cherish the most. He understands the price they pay for our freedom and doesn’t take it for granted. We are truly blessed!

      Speaking of U.S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln said, “I can’t spare this man. He fights.”
      Much like Grant, Donald Trump fights.
      President Trump isn’t perfect. He isn’t polished. He is also not scared. Here is what Mr Trump is: God’s man for this time and place in history. Because God has chosen to have mercy on the United States of America.

        Well said menolike… he is so sincere in making this country great. Unfortunately, too many people are intolerant and are unable to see that his only desire is to help this great country be better.

          I truly believe that most of America loves this man. Unfortunately you will never know this because of Fake News Media. Do not lament but rejoice in his fortitude and accomplishments as though the entire world loves him. they are chanting his name all over Europe today…..Not Tired of Winning!!!!

    POTUS has set a very high standard for the presidency. Those who follow will be challenged to even come close. Our recent presidents had forgotten that their duty is exclusively to the American people, and the American people had forgotten “what right looks like” in a president.

      I have found when some peace in my heart is needed.

      When you want to simply quietly reflect on the day and all other things in your life.

      Visiting the graves of our fallen hero’s gives you that solace. That quietness you desire.

      It is like they are saying:

      “Come stand with us. Walking among us. We can still even in our deaths, give you “peace.

      To all my fellow Marines and Service people who made that ultimate sacrifice.

      To all my friends who did not come back.

      Thank you……thank you that even in death, you still care.

      They don’t donate them all. Many organizations sell wreaths to place on serviceman graves. I lead a Trail Life USA troop and we sold wreaths this year and participated in placing them at a local cemetery with a veterans section.

          Getting the boys there without having to pay any fee was a great part of the success. They were indelibly impressed. They got it.

      Four days out this week on the team run trucking up to Columbia Falls, ME and back. A place that wasn’t listed in my Atlas that is about 5 miles north of Columbia, ME.
      Brought back 3,764 wreaths bound for the cemeteries at Ft. Sam Houston, TX and New Braunfels, TX for https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/
      Though any more I hate teaming, it was an honor to be chosen for such duty. They were behind the eight ball on the time and Charlie and I came through. There will be 1.5 million wreaths put on Veterans graves starting this weekend, All of them provided free of charge. All will be placed by volunteers. Drivers and trucking companies from across the nation provide the transportation for the wreaths free of charge.
      The area in NE Maine where they harvest the balsam pine bowes has three primary employers. A blue berry farming company. A Foods company. And the company that does Wreaths Across America.
      If you haven’t seen fields of blue berry plants in the winter it is quite awesome. The plants turn red and the contrast with a light covering of white snow is strikingly beautiful.
      The people at Wreaths Across America treated us wonderfully. They fed us while we were there and provided a heated lounge to wait in. Truckers and companies from all over the nation were there to pick up wreaths for delivery. It was 24 hours before we got loaded because there was such a back log.
      When we pulled in at the terminal at our company in Anderson, IN the next team that would take the wreaths to their ultimate destination was waiting.
      There are parts of America that need to be made great again but where I was at this week isn’t one of them.

    An added bonus: Every time POTUS steps out in public like this, being himself, doing what he feels is important, it sends a message to all his many enemies and haters that ultimately, they have no power over him. They are impotent against him. It’s been making them insane for two years, not counting the primaries.

    Today my better half and I attended the wreath placing event at a local National Cemetery. It was a very moving event.
    The speeches gave us great hope in our fellow Americans, both active service and those inactive. The speakers spoke with a crispness in patriotism that the prior administration would have shut down, prayed in our Lord Jesus’ name, and for the very first time, was prayed over by a Jewish Rabbi.
    At the end as we were standing in line to help place over 11,000! wreaths, the heavens opened and no one budged in their determination to get all the graves covered.
    My WWII father, WWI grandfathers, and kinsmen who went before, fighting for us in all the prior American wars, including the one for our own independence from the globalist empire building England, stood with us and saluted.
    For a few short hours, we were all Americans again, under one precious flag, United. Under God!
    And our very dear patriot, President Donald J. Trump, also walked the cemetery in the rain at Arlington, to honor our dead.
    God bless America!

    y’know, the great Churchill once said that “when you are going thru hell, keep going”! Little did we know it then, but Donald Trump’s ride down the escalator in 2015 represented an allegorical descent from his pleasant perch above it all into the deepest depths of Dante’s darkness. Our fearless leader is currently navigating the various circles of hell laid out before him: first was ridicule, then came disbelief, followed by fear, then onto anger where we find ourselves now…who knows what comes next? Resentment? Repercussions? Revenge? Retribution? Retaliation? Reprisal? Treachery? Violence? All the above? SMDH

    I know not what awaits him (or us for that matter), but the man perseveres like no one I’ve ever seen and he deserves our support and encouragement at every turn…I’m not gonna sweat the small stuff and criticize him for every perceived “misstep” or deviation from the “true path”…we’re on Wolfmoon’s wild ride and I’m not getting off for any reason – come hell or high water! MAGA and Merry Christmas everyone!

    Morrill and Karen Worcester spearheaded this movement back some 25 years ago. The ceremony takes place at noon every 3rd Saturday in December. The Worcesters leave Maine the week before in a caravan with their support crew, security including patriot guards, State Police escort and 14-18 massive 18 wheelers (various sponsors offer the use of their trucks) carrying hundreds of thousands of wreaths south to Arlington for the ceremony that takes place simultaneously in participating cemeteries across the United States and the world. As they pass through towns on their annual journey they stop for a meal or dedication and people come out standing in salute and cheer them on. I wave and cheer every year to them as they pass through CT. I’ve met them a few times, nicest, most humble and down to earth couple with the biggest hearts. This year was extra special as two weeks earlier it was the first time France allowed them to come over place over 9,000 made in the USA wreaths at Normandy.
    God bless the Worcester’s and all that help them get their precious cargo of wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery every year.

    Surely Gen. Mattis was on hand for this. Years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, we served in ultra-remote sites– not “in harm’s way” but critical to the early warning intelligence directing a SAC counter-strike.

    Honor to Trump, a true Commander-in-Chief. The very thought of 2016’s alternative curdles the blood.
