Trump’s “Yellow New Deal” on Border-Funding


Moments ago Trump told reporters that he’s “not happy” about the deal reached on Monday night to keep the government open past Friday, and while he did not say whether or not he would support the bill, he said would hold a meeting later today to consider the compromise.




Border Deal: Only $1.37 Billion for Wall


President Trump has not yet decided if he’ll support a bipartisan congressional border security deal which provides just $1.375 billion for 55 new miles of border fencing in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley area – far short of the $5.7 billion Trump has demanded for his signature campaign promise, reports Bloombergciting an administration official. 




No Strings Attached


Every once in a while someone comes along that refreshes my faith in humanity. Someone that offers assistance with no strings attached.

No expectations. No, “If I do this for you, then you’ll do this for me.”

Several weeks ago, one such individual offered to transcribe my audios into Spanish. I agreed, thinking,”Yeah, sure. We’ll see.”

Since then, my in-box has received regular submissions.

To date, 16 of my narrations have been translated into Spanish. And she’s currently working on several more.  And so, I wish to thank Grace L. for her contributions.

Grace, you’re a gem and a true patriot.


Thank you,
