Trump Gets A Deal, Immigration & Identity Politics, China Protests

Trump Gets A Deal
Under the threat of tariffs, the Mexican government reached an agreement with the United States late Friday to increase their cooperation to secure our border.  Kudos to Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who ably represented President Trump in the negotiations.

Politicizing The Fourth Of July, Left-Wing Extremism, Chag Sameach

Politicizing The Fourth Of July
A left-wing Washington Post columnist is REALLY upset with President Trump.   (Shocker, right?!) 
What's his offense this time?  The president plans to deliver a speech at the Lincoln Memorial during the July 4th celebrations.  According to this columnist, Trump's presence will be "a stain on the Lincoln Memorial."

Remembering D-Day, Could We Do It Again

Remembering D-Day
Today at the American cemetery in Normandy, France, President Trump may have reached the rhetorical peak of his presidency.  He connected with the deep roots of America and Western Civilization in much the same way he did during his excellent address in Warsaw, Poland.
There have been many speeches by world leaders at Normandy.  Most of them are forgettable.  On rare occasions, their rhetoric rises to the level of remarkable and inspiring. 

The President's Prayer, Where Are Trump's Allies, Standing For Life

The President's Prayer
This morning, President Trump joined other European leaders in Portsmouth, England, the British city from which the D-Day invasion was launched.  Each world leader had a small role to play in the ceremony honoring the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. 

Carnival Of Resistance, Horowitz Report Done, Thomas's Future

"Carnival Of Resistance"
This morning, President Trump held a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.  According to one CNN commentator, it was a "very warm joint appearance."  Both leaders acknowledged the importance of our trans-Atlantic alliance.  Trump joked with May several times, even eliciting a few laughs from reporters in the room.

Prayers For The President, A Royal Welcome, Twitter & Tiananmen

Prayers For The President
President Trump made an unannounced visit yesterday to McLean Bible Church, just outside of Washington, D.C.  He received a very warm welcome from the church, one of the largest congregations in the metro Washington area. 
The president was there, according to a White House spokesman, "to visit with the pastor and pray for the victims and community of Virginia Beach." 

Alaska Earthquake, Trump Tries Again, Clinton's Comedy Routine

Alaska Earthquake
Did you feel that Earthquake?  It happened up in Alaska, and the shockwaves were really strong here in Washington, D.C.

Pray For The President, Equating Life With Racism, Back To The Voting Booths

Pray For The President
Reverend Franklin Graham is calling on Christians across the country to join together this Sunday, June 2, for a special day of prayer.  Specifically, Graham is asking men and women of faith to pray for President Donald Trump. 
We are urged to pray for "all those in authority," and I was honored to join Rev. Graham and hundreds of other faith leaders in endorsing this call to prayer for our president and our country.  Below is an excerpt of Franklin Graham's statement:

Mueller Speaks, Transparency vs. Secrecy, Thomas vs. Ginsburg

Mueller Speaks
Special Counsel Robert Mueller addressed reporters and the American people for the first time today.  He declared that his investigation was over, that his office was closing and that he was resigning from the Justice Department.
Like the investigation and Mueller report itself, today's statement by the special counsel is unlikely to change any minds.  Those who want to impeach the president still want to impeach him.  Nancy Pelosi is still in a difficult position.  Those who want to move on still want to move on.

Memorial Day, EU Elections, Gillette Doubles Down
