RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.
It will offer
fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by
day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military
campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to
be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge
that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental
or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission
will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real
politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to
be pro-active. That's all I promise.
I REALLY DON'T LIKE REPEATING MYSELF, but some of you are not paying attention. See Rudy Giuliani's statement in the WSJ November 13, 2019 entitled "The Case For The Impeachment Defense" (Opinion, pA17). As I have said in this section several times already, the President's attorney states: "For
Messrs. Trump and Zelensky to discuss these issues was not only proper
but an exercise of Mr. Trump's responsibility as U.S. president as
expressed in Article ll, Section 3 of the Constitution: "to take care
that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed." Can You Hear Me Now?
MORE ON THE FAMOUS AND INFAMOUS "NEVER-TRUMPERS". My prediction: in November, 2020, they will choke on their own bile.
FORGET THE FAKE IMPEACHMENT. THIS
is why the President of the United States had and has an obligation to
investigate the ongoing corruption in a nation, Ukraine, that is
receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in our taxpayers' money. That includes investigating the evidently deep involvement of the former Vice President of the U.S. and of his son. Is that clear?
THIS IS HOW TO "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN": EMULATE MELANIA TRUMP.
Now, some will NOT read this. Some will discount it as Trump campaign blather. Some simply will not care . My old goat’s advice ---- at least look at the pictures !!! Melania is widely recognized as Donald Trump's "Trophy Wife." But there's a side of Mrs. Trump most people have yet to see - until now. Despite being married to the most controversial presidential candidate in American history, Melania Trump remains an enigma. The
mystery that comes with her reserved personality makes Melania an easy
target for liberals as articles labeling her as a "mannequin" and
condemning her silence are published daily. Although the famous
former model seems to have it all, Melania's testimony tells the story
of someone who's struggled against all odds - and overcame.
I learned the TRUTH about Melania Trump, I realized she was the living
definition of a Proverbs 31 woman - the kind of First Lady that America
has been deprived of for far too long. Melania Trump has graced the
covers of the most prestigious fashion industry magazines. But like
many Americans today, Melania's success was the result of a courageous
work ethic and humble beginnings.
Melanija Knavs was born
on April 26, 1970 in the small Slovenian railroad town of Sevnica -
long before she changed the spelling of her name to pursue a modeling
career. Despite the struggles many Slovenians faced during the
country's Communist times, the Knavses worked extremely hard to give
their children a positive upbringing.
Amalija Ulcnik, worked developing patterns at a factory that
manufactured children's clothing. She had met Viktor Knavs in 1966 who
worked as a chauffeur for a nearby town's mayor. They instilled
Melania and her sister with conservative values such as putting family
first and having exceptional work ethic. After looking at the picture
of Melania's parents below, it's clear she inherited their timeless
good looks too!
"I love my childhood. It was a beautiful
childhood," Melania said. Her son, Barron (10), speaks Slovenian
fluently and uses it to speak with his grandparents, who now live near
the Trumps in New York at Trump Tower. Melania's father left his job
as a chauffeur to become a salesman at a state-owned car company in
Ljubljana, Slovenia and found his family an apartment there - all to
provide his children with exceptional education opportunities with
their new prestigious address.
Amalija's career as a
seamstress had a profound impact on Melania. Once Melania learned to
draw, she would sketch her own designs, and her mother or sister, Ines,
would sew them. Melania also made her own jewelry. Amalija spent
evenings after work sewing clothing for herself and her two daughters.
Instead of wearing clothes from the store, the Knavses designed and
sewed everything they wore. Melania's childhood friends remember her
always being dressed elegantly and carrying herself with confidence -
there was always something striking about her.
modeling career began when she was 16-years-old at a modeling contest
when she attracted the attention of photographer Stane Jerko, whose
test photos of the breathtaking teenager resulted in her signing with a
modeling agency in Milan. Despite her success as a model, Melania's
goal was to become a designer. So she applied to the School of
Architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, becoming one
of the few to pass the school's notoriously difficult entrance exams.
pursuing her degree in design and architecture, Melania remained
focused in school. She didn't drink, or party, nor did she smoke. Even
with the temptations surrounding her as a college student and
successful model, Melania lived a quiet homebound life. "She kept to
herself, she was a loner. After a shoot or a catwalk, she went home,
not out. She didn't want to waste time partying," Jerko remembers. After
obtaining a degree in design and architecture at the University of
Ljubljana, Melania was jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan
- but Melania had even bigger dreams. Melania knew that if she wanted
to achieve her goals she would have to move to America.
finally made it to New York in 1996 after landing an American modeling
contract - but nothing could prepare for the struggles that were down
Shortly after she began pursuing her modeling
dreams in America, Melania struggled to find work because she was
considered "too old." The modeling industry isn't friendly to models
once they hit their later twenties, and at just 26-years-old, Melania
was worried her best days were already behind her. Melania went to
castings every day, but photographers continued picking someone else
over her, and often someone younger. She was having a difficult time
supporting herself, and endured the challenging season while being
overseas, away from her tight-knit family back in Slovenia.
Melania got her "big break" and it wasn't long before she graced the
magazines covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, British GQ, In Style, New
York Magazine, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Allure, Self,
Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Elle. But nothing could prepare her for
the life-changing experience she would eventually encounter during her
thriving modeling career…
While at a party during the New
York Fashion Week in the fall of 1998, Melania met Donald Trump. She
was a tall, shy brunette at just 28-years-old - while Trump was a brash
52-year-old real estate mogul. "I didn't know much about Donald
Trump," she says of their first encounter. "I had my life, I had my
world. I didn't follow Donald Trump and what kind of life he had."
Trump attended the party with a date, he was instinctively drawn to
Melania. When Trump's date went to the bathroom, he seized the
opportunity to chat for a few minutes with the Slovenian model he'd
noticed. Unlike the women who swooned every time the famous
billionaire approached them, Melania remained unimpressed. When Trump
asked for her number, she refused and instead asked for HIS contact
information - she didn't want to be just another woman he called, and
she waited an entire week before calling him. Melania was curious to
see if Trump would submit a business number. "I wanted to see what his
intention is," she explains. "It tells you a lot from the man what kind
of number he gives you. He gave me all of his numbers."
confidence and shocking reaction to the wealthy playboy made Trump even
more attracted to her. Trump could tell Melania was beautiful AND
intelligent, and he was willing to do whatever it took to win the woman
of his dreams. "I'm not star struck," she explains. "We had a great
connection, we had great chemistry, but I was not star struck. And
maybe he noticed that."
Many are quick to criticize Donald
and Melania's marriage due to their age difference, but after learning
more about Melania - it's easy to understand that these two were made
for each other. Melania's reserved personality and traditional values
balance Trump's assertive personality and controversial behavior.
traditional values can be seen in her absence from Trump's campaign
trail. Instead of being on the road with her husband, Melania chose to
be at home in New York City to raise their 10-year-old son, Barron. Despite the Trumps' luxurious lifestyle, Melania refuses to let their son be raised by a nanny. "It's
my choice not to be there [on the campaign trail]," Melania said. "I
support my husband 100 percent, but … we have a 10-year-old son
together, Barron, and I'm raising him."
"This is the age he needs a parent at home," she added. When
Donald Trump told his wife he wanted to run for president, Melania said
they discussed it in depth and she encouraged him to run. "I
encouraged him because I know what he will do and what he can do for
America," she said. "He loves the American people and he wants to help
Although she's not out on the campaign trail, Melania stays involved in her husband's campaign behind-the-scenes. "She's
told me a couple of times during the debate, she was very happy with my
performances, if you would want to call them a performance," Donald
Trump said. "But she said, 'You could tone it down a little bit on
occasion,' which I understand."
"She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue." - Proverbs 31:26 Melania revealed the biggest untruth about her husband is the perception that he's "nasty." "He's
not," Melania said. "He has a big heart and [a] very warm heart. You
see who he is on the campaign trail all the time and on television, and
I think - you know America needs a strong leader and a tough leader and
[he] knows what he's doing."
"He is who he is," she says.
"Even if you give him advice, he will maybe take it in, but then he
will do it the way he wants to do it. You cannot change a person. Let
them be. Let them be the way they are." Melania's passion for
philanthropy is just a glimpse of the difference she could make as our
First Lady. Some of the philanthropic causes she's been involved with
include the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Police Athletic League,
the Boys Club of New York, The American Red Cross and Love Our Children
"She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy." - Proverbs 31:20 Though
she may not have experience in politics, Melania Trump is equipped to
help her husband out on the diplomatic front: in addition to her native
Slovenian, Melania speaks four other languages: English, French,
Serbian and German. "She's an incredible mother, she loves her son,
Barron, so much. And I have to say, she will make an unbelievable First
Lady," Donald Trump said.
"She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness." - Proverbs 31:27 Melania
Trump's life story is a vivid illustration of the American dream. Her
humble roots, exceptional work ethic, and devotion to family clearly
sets her apart. If Melania can make it all the way from Slovenia to the
White House, there's no excuse for excuses, liberals.
"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." - Proverbs 31:25 Did
you learn something new about Donald Trump's "Trophy Wife?" We love
you, Melania Trump! America could use a First Lady like you.
through TUESDAY, November 10 through 12,
READ IT AND WEEP.
The America that I was born into is becoming unrecognizable.
We have just one chance to save it bloodlessly, on Election Day, 2020.
