After three days of Democrats presenting their case against President Trump in the impeachment trial, Donald Trump’s lawyers began their defense on Saturday, warning against the temptation to overturn the result of the 2016 election “without the slightest evidence.” Pat Cipollone, a lawyer for the White House, argued, “we believe when you hear the facts, and that’s what we intend to cover today, the facts, you will find the president did absolutely nothing wrong.”
On Wednesday, Democrats began presenting their initial allegations at the Senate trial of Donald Trump, a day after a contentious session to set the rules for the process. The Republicans are the majority in the US Senate, and going by their vivid unity and loyalty to their party and president, it is clear that President Trump will likely be acquitted.
The United States Senate early Wednesday morning, after 13 hours of debate, set the rules for the impeachment trial of American President Donald Trump. The Republican majority rejected all attempts by Democrats to call new witnesses against the president. The trial resumed this afternoon, local time.
The World Economic Forum’s 50th edition kicked off on Tuesday in Davos, Switzerland, dominated by debates on matters touching on climate change. For the second year in a row, young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg was invited to attend the conference. Early in the event, she criticized the world economic elite, who did practically nothing to combat climate change.
Attorneys for US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the impeachment case opened against him by the Democratic opposition is a “brazen and unlawful” attempt to try to overturn the 2016 election and interfere in this year’s November elections. The president’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow and Pat Cipollone issued the warning in a seven-page document to respond to the Senate notification that the trial of Trump’s impeachment process will begin on Tuesday.
Progressive liberal influences are affecting Orthodox Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Jews throughout the world. In the news is an article regarding the Catholic church Pope Benedict warns against relaxing priestly- celibacy rules. Pope Benedict resigned from his position and Pope Francis is his successor. Many people guess the reason for his resignation which was very unusual for a Pope to resign. He may have seen that in the future there would be pressure on the Catholic Church to institute reforms and he was not willing to make these changes. One of the changes is being talked about by Pope Francis regarding priestly celibacy rules under the pressures of his opponents that have pressured the church on the issue of immunity of Priests to sexual abuse accusations. Pope Francis has opened the Catholic Church to gays, and has endorsed interfaith dialogue.
The impeachment trial of U.S. President Donald J. Trump began in the Senate with a solemn reading of the allegations of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger opened the third presidential impeachment trial in American history with a warning to the 100 senators.
US President Donald Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He signed the “first phase” of a trade agreement with China Wednesday at the White House. Trump described the signing of the agreement as “a momentous step . . . toward a future of fair and reciprocal trade with China.” The world’s two largest economies reached a partial trade agreement last December, a move that is expected to ease a long-running trade war that has hurt US farmers and created an obstacle to global growth.
Since the earliest days of the Obama administration, the (left) Democrats have been moving to establish a Socialist Democracy in the United States. Let’s face it, Obama wore many hats.
Iran is a Socialist country and its powers-to-be are constantly and consistently oppressing its people. It’s easily seen by the number of protestors in the streets of Iran over the last few days that have been crying out for the removal of the Iranian leadership. Those people know that a Socialist country is not a good thing. It’s no secret that Obama paid Iran billions of dollars in bribe money. It could have been tracked to if it were electronically transferred to Iran. Cash only lets them spend it wherever and with whomever, and with no oversight or future explanation of what it was spent on. One thing is certain, they didn’t spend it on the people of Iran.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday night that he was open to negotiating a new nuclear deal with Iran, but the first step depends on the Iranian regime. His only conditions, as he made clear, are “no nuclear weapons and don’t kill protesters.” Trump tweeted, “National Security Adviser suggested today that sanctions & protests have Iran ‘choked off,’ will force them to negotiate. Actually, I couldn’t care less if they negotiate. Will be totally up to them but, no nuclear weapons and ‘don’t kill your protesters.”
2020 started with mass casualties of innocent lives. Iran shot down a Boeing airplane operated by Ukrainian airlines, resulting in the loss of human lives. The attack happened after the US successfully executed (via drone strike) Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. It is plausible to believe Iran was trying to murder the Iranian-Canadians on the plane, considering them traitors for leaving the regime.
Israel has seen its heaviest rainfall over the last two weeks since 1969. Fierce storms and heavy rain pounded central and northern Israel, causing massive flooding in cities, and rivers causing major damage to homes, vehicles, and infrastructure. The northern city of Nahariya suffered besieged by floods suffered the most damage from the abnormal inclement weather.
US President Donald Trump plans to attend the World Economic Forum in Switzerland later in January. Last year, the President didn’t attend the meeting because of the record-long federal government shutdown. The annual World Economic Forum Summit, held in the popular ski resort of Davos, attracts high-profile businessmen and politicians, as well as academics and other community leaders.
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign team said it would launch a 60-second election advertisement during the Super Bowl, the professional football championship final, to be held on February 2nd in Miami, Florida. The move, which is expected to cost the Republican at least $10 million, was a response to billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who is also buying a Super Bowl ad.
The world is waiting to see what type of retaliation will be made by Iran for the assassination of Solimeini their general chief of staff. Iran shot eighteen missiles at US headquarters in Iraq. Democracy is at war with theocracy in the Middle East. In democracy freedom is of first importance in life. In theocracy the law, the Koran, The Torah is most important. Progressive Jewish Spirituality and Baha”i faith teach that freedom and the law are of equal importance but just like God is unknown his law is an unknown law. Koran and Torah are two attempts both claim to be the Law of God but they are in truth the Law of the Israel nation or the Law of the Islamic nation. The prophets like Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jerimiah taught the truth that there is a third law whose specifics are unknown which is the Law of God. Teach this in a theocracy and you will be put to death immediately.
The recent assassination of Qassem Suleimani, a top commander of the Iran Quds Force, sent shockwaves across the world and ratcheted up war rhetoric between the United States and the Iranian administration. President Donald Trump ordered a drone strike that led to his death. His convoy was attacked while leaving the Baghdad International Airport.
John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser, says he is prepared to testify if the Senate summons him in their impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Democrats believe Bolton has direct information to support their allegations of abuse of power by the president. Trump dismissed John Bolton from the post of national security adviser last September. The US president said Bolton had made mistakes in his analyzes of North Korea.
The South China Morning Post reported that Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Liu He planned to lead a trade delegation to the United States in early January to sign the first-phase trade agreement. However, US President Donald Trump unilaterally decided to announce on New Year’s Eve that he will sign a trade agreement with Chinese representatives on January 15. It is understood that the Chinese government did not expect the United States to unilaterally announce the date of the signature.
The Iraqi parliament has voted to pass a resolution calling for foreign troops to withdraw from Iraq, including US and German troops. U.S. President Donald Trump also threatened the Iraqi government with sanctions for the first time. The resolution was passed by lawmakers, asking the government to terminate the agreement reached with Washington in 2014. The agreement allowed the United States to deploy 5,200 soldiers in Iraq.
US President Donald Trump threatened Iraq with drastic sanctions on Sunday if the country dares to kick out US troops out of the country in a hostile manner. The Iraqi Parliament has called on the government to send the US-led coalition out of Iraq after Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani was killed Friday in a US drone attack in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, by the US. But should Iraq fail to meet the US conditions for a possible retreat, the country will suffer sanctions “like never before,” Trump said.
President Trump is fighting for America and freedom. He considers Israel his partner because Israel is a democracy supporting America and defending freedom. The goal of President Trump as an Evangelist is to light up the country of America through adding to America faith in God which it is slowing losing. Israel although it is a secular state, the land of Israel represents to Evangelists as the homeland where was born Jesus Christ and his followers. Israel is the land of the Bible.
The United States has selected 52 Iranian targets to be attacked if Iran dares launch an attack on any American or U.S. possessions, President Trump posted in a number of tweets. “We have … targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture” and “if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets… Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD,” Trump tweeted.
Over the last few days President Trump has ordered attacks on the enemies of the United States and its citizens abroad. After instituting these attacks the President has come under extreme scrutiny and prejudices of the Democrat controlled House. So let’s take a look at the reality of the situation, and in doing so we will also discover the Democratic Party’s inability to know and speak the truth.
Iran’s Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani has been killed in a drone strike at the Baghdad Airport. The strike was carried out by the US and was ordered by President Donald Trump. Soleimani was a powerful Iranian General and a veteran of the Syrian War. Soleimani led the work of Iranian military advisers in Iraq, and also led the Quds organization, which is responsible for military and intelligence and sabotage activities outside of Iran itself. The force reports directly to the supreme leader of The Republic of Iran, Ali Khamenei.
Iran has vowed that it would carry out a “severe retaliation,” after a US airstrike in Baghdad on Friday killed Qasem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force and architect of the growing military influence in the Middle East. Soleimani was a general considered to be Iran’s second most powerful figure, after only the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. In a statement, he said revenge awaits the “criminals” who killed Soleimani.
A US air raid on a Baghdad airport in Iraq late on Thursday killed Qasem Soleimani, a general of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iraqi state television reported. The bombing also killed Abu Mehdi al-Muhandis, one of the leaders of the pro-Iranian Iraqi militia. Soleimani headed the Quds Force, one of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite arms, and was one of the most powerful military persons in the country.
A New Beginning
I have always thought about the beginning of the new year as filled with hope and possibilities. We can put behind us the mistakes of the past year and can start to build a year filled with the hope that we can accomplish whatever we feel will give us more happiness.
I and my friend, Genesis ( whose name appropriately means birth or beginnings) were talking about how to put some relaxation in our lives to help us cope better with daily responsibilities. The next time I saw her I asked her what she had decided to do and her answer really surprised me. She said that since she was a child, she had always wanted to see a sunrise, and that she and a friend got up at 3:00 AM and did just that. She really looked happy when she showed me pictures of her beautiful sunrise. What I realized then is that what makes each of us happy is very individual and something that only we ourselves can know. I hope this new year all of you will also try to discover whatever it is that you have always wanted to do and plan to make your dream a reality.
Hundreds of protesters attacked the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday to protest US bombings that left dozens of Shi’ite militia fighters dead on Sunday. Iraqi supporters of pro-Iranian factions stormed the embassy compound, damaging the embassy’s outer wall and shouting “death to America.” Pictures posted on social networks show protesters climbing the heavily protected walls of the building, holding Shiite militia flags.
US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that “great and important coordination” between the United States and Russia helped prevent an attack on St. Petersburg. “President Putin of Russia called to thank me and the U.S. for informing them of a planned terrorist attack in the very beautiful city of Saint Petersburg,” Trump wrote on his Twitter account. “They were able to quickly apprehend the suspects, with many lives being saved . . . Great and important coordination!” The US president added.
There has been a tug of war for geopolitical influence and attempts to disrupt the already established balance throughout 2019. We also saw the formation of interesting and very invasive social media polices around the globe. Hence, there were ramifications and changes to the social media landscape:
- France implementing new measures to track and monitor the social media of its citizens.
- Russia is working to complete their digital iron curtain.
- China implementing draconian verification process impacting social credit and privacy.
- UK to ruthlessly start collecting DNA.
- We’ve also seen the rise of deep fake technology that could have a great impact on the US 2020 Presidential elections as well as on the global scale.
Let’s look at the world’s main players and regions:
Awesome words about Greshun De Bouse to come as we recall why we all fell in love with Greshun in the first place– she is everything!
Greshun’s 2019 Recap: Winning
As 2019 comes to a close, global leader, app developer, Disabled Veterans Day founder, motivational speaker, living legend, history maker, and our powerful leader-Greshun De Bouse-reflects on Triumph in 2019, Trump, 2020, and the next decade. The year 2019 was a remarkable year for global icon Greshun De Bouse.
- She made history as the only resident of her state in 25 years or likely ever to found a national holiday included/seen in Chase’s Calendar in any library in all 50 U.S. states.
- Greshun was recognized by Mayor of New Orleans, LA-LaToya Cantrell-for her equality and bullying prevention/recovery efforts for kids and families in the world.
- Legendary celebrity actress, Bern Nadette Stanis (aka Thelma from Good Times) showed public support for Greshun in a moving FB post, wherein she praised Greshun for, and encouraged all to support Greshun in her efforts to further assist the disabled and bullied.
- Greshun was deemed reigning Queen-Miss Stuffed Shrimp Scholar 2019-and traveled the globe educating all on the origin and health benefits of stuffed shrimp-including making guest radio/news appearances, and searching for the healthiest stuffed shrimp dish. Malone’s Steak & Seafood-Atlanta, GA. ultimately was declared winner of the Stuffed Shrimp Scholars Taste Competition.
- Greshun De Bouse, founded Disabled Veterans Day, the first proclamation for which was issued to her in the home of Ft. Benning-Columbus, GA-by Mayor Skip Henderson. The holiday now has received proclamations and recognition from mayors, governors, celebrities, and other dignitaries across the globe.
- Greshun De Bouse represented her state at Essence Fest 2019 during which time she interacted and posed for photos with, and was thanked for her positive local and global work by celebrities such as legendary actress Bern Nadette Stanis, Tia Mann-daughter of Tamela and David Mann, and Adrienne Joi Jones, from the iconic film Baby Boy.
- Powerful Greshun De Bouse miraculously survived a would-be fatal auto accident at the hands of a careless driver, while en route to city hall to receive another mayoral proclamation for Disabled Veterans Day. Interestingly, pre-accident, Greshun had been working on developing an app for disabled veterans with PTSD, TBI, and other needs to improve relaxation-memory-cognition and streamline services connectivity.
- Greshun De Bouse was named Mover and Shaker of the Year by MAS Media and continued to receive proclamations and media coverage for Disabled Veterans Day. Eighth, Greshun received a text-vite (a word she popularized) to attend President Trump’s Keep America Great Rally-Dallas, TX.
- All during approximately the same timeframe, Greshun launched the aforementioned app for disabled veterans entitled “DVDAY630” on Google Play and Amazon, was invited to the Governor’s Mansion in Alabama to receive a proclamation from Governor Ivey for Disabled Veterans Day, gives back by donating her time to kids at St. Jude’s-Memphis, TN and is thanked by St. Jude’s CEO for all she does to prevent bullying in kids with cancer-especially during their hairless phase.
- Greshun De Bouse receives a proclamation from Mayor of Tupelo, MS for Disabled Veterans Day, and makes history as the sole American of Color in President Trump’s VIP section, seen just to the left of President Trump (facing the screen) during his speech at KAG Rally-Tupelo. Greshun has made local and national news for her powerfully positive global impact.
Wow! Greshun De Bouse is everything….literally! When asked how she has the energy to do it all, Greshun calmly smiles and says, “When you’re walking in your purpose, you are equipped with all you need to finish your course. For me, it is always about others, acting in a manner that will positively impact all everywhere!”
Triumph and Trump
Throughout her 2019 journey, Greshun has definitely had some would-be challenges or even halters to her good work. But when asked how she still thrives in the face of adversity, these dynamic words came from her mouth:
“I am truly grateful for All of my experiences. You always have a choice. All of the many challenges of 2019 amid my success intended as stumbling blocks, I chose to make them stepping stones to my next chapter.”
Greshun is a true people-person who remains humble and steadfast in all things. Everyone just loves her! But what we all want to know is how if felt being at the Governor’s Mansion and being chosen to sit in President Trump’s VIP section. Sweet Greshun says:
“I take it all in stride. I do what I do for others, because of my love for all-irrespective of individual differences. The Governor’s Mansion is divine and making history is important. I viewed my historical moment in time in Trump’s VIP section as an inclusivity effort indicative of growth on his part at the time. Whether or not it was what I viewed it to be, the truth is, any opportunity is what you make it-so that is what it was for me. I am grateful for all opportunities and experiences.”
How is President Trump?
“This is a broad, non-specific question. Nonetheless, President Trump has seemed personable when I have seen him. He definitely has a following, which is an indicator of how many persons feel about his mannerisms. He can really draw a crowd from what I have observed,” Greshun says.
How do you feel about Trump Naysayers?
“I believe what makes America so great is that all are entitled to feel or think how they choose. What I would like persons to know is speaking truth about observations and such of President Trump or anyone are not necessarily declarations of support or lack thereof. It is simply speaking truth-no more or less.
For example, the legal age to purchase cigarettes and the like in the U.S. is now 21. This is huge, and it is my understanding President Trump is/was the impetus for this occurrence. This is simply speaking truth. When I say President Trump knows how to draw a crowd, that is truth based on my observation/evidence of him doing so repeatedly. That is all. I neither desire to bash anyone, nor excuse any inecusable behavior. I believe all have room for improvement, but there is a tactful way to do anything. Decent and in order is key.”
2020 To Come
Greshun is so wise and powerful. It is amazing that all of these extraordinary gifts and talents are contained in her petite frame. Greshun says in response to what’s next for her in 2020 and the next decade in general, “Prosperity, Greater Greatness, More Than Conquering, and a Multitude of Foot Stools (some will catch this more readily than others)!”
Wow. Prosper Greshun! So be it!

People want to blame President Trump for the constant anti-Semitic attacks on Jews like the attack in Jersey City and the attack in Monsey. For sure during the four year term of President Trump has risen the amount of hate crimes. Blaming President Trump for these crimes contradicts the truth. More than any other President of America President Trump fights against hate crimes.
We all know and love her. There’s nothing not to love about Greshun De Bouse. Her positive track record across the globe, helping to improve conditions for disabled veterans and other groups in need is irrefutable. Greshun has received recognition for her efforts from mayors, governors, celebrities, and other notables across the globe.
The United States House of Representatives approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Wednesday, after seven hours of debate. The move, therefore, makes Donald Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached by the House. The others were Andrew Johnson, in 1868, and Bill Clinton, in 1998. Richard Nixon resigned in 1974 before the vote.
The US Senate approved additional anti-Russian sanctions. The Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act was introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) back in February 2019. US President Donald Trump is forced to put restrictions on Russian Sovereign debt but it is only applicable to newly issued bonds. It is possible Trump will veto the Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act.
Ahead of the House vote on his impeachment, which is set to take place today, President Donald Trump sent an angry letter yesterday to the Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He feels he is being subjected to unfair treatment. The Democrats, in Trump’s view, are waging an “open war on American democracy” by launching impeachment proceedings against him.
With just a few weeks to the start of the US Democratic Party’s primary election, and less than a year to the 2020 US presidential election, former President Barack Obama has not yet officially declared his support for any of his Democratic Party’s candidates. On Monday, however, he made a statement that could as well be interpreted as a criticism of the top names in the two US biggest parties, Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
As I and the rest of America watched the Democratic Party for the last three years. How can anyone not see the hatred these people have for our President? Donald Trump may put his foot in his mouth sometimes, but take your eyes off what the jealousy of the Democrats are accusing him of and see what he is doing for this country as they attack and harass him.
On December 10, a deadly shooting took place at a grocery store located in the Greenville section of Jersey City in which five people including the two attackers and three civilians were killed while another civilian and two policemen were injured. The motive of this attack has been established to be anti-Semitism. The two terrorists, who were members of the Black Hebrew Israelites, posted their intentions to attack the Kosher Supermarket as a hate crime and also stated that they intended to kill and injure policemen.
The US House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Friday, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. In total, 23 members— all Democrats— voted in favor, and 17 members— all Republicans— voted against.
A video posted by the founder of Americans Against Antisemitism captures Jews being blamed for their own murder, while people cheer on “Get the Jews out of Jersey City.” The police have already declared that the two gunmen had deliberately targeted the JC Kosher Supermarket, where the four hour gun battle took place. The investigation into the motives of this incident shows the two attackers approaching the Kosher store rather than another store on the street.
US President Donald Trump published a message on Twitter Thursday attacking young environmental activist Greta Thunberg, 16. In response, the Swedish girl changed her Twitter account description in an apparent mockery directed towards the American president, just as she did to hit at Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, who called her a “brat.”
Democratic Party leaders in Congress released the first formal articles of impeachment against US President Donald Trump on Tuesday. Trump will be charged with obstruction of Congress, for trying to prevent investigations, and abuse of power, for putting his personal interest in the 2020 elections above the national interest and national security.
Some 4,000 people attended the Diplomat Beach Resort Ballroom on Saturday night at a function of the Israeli American Council. President Trump was invited as the keynote guest speaker at the function. Also at the event was Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino giant who introduced President Trump. Adelson is one of the largest donors to the IAC and a supporter of President Trump financially and emotionally.
United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Thursday that the House already has enough material to begin the drafting of the final report on the impeachment process of US President Donald Trump. “The president’s actions are a profound violation of the public trust,” said Pelosi. “His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution,” she added, and concluded that “today, I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment.”
On the surface, the question of Donald Trump serving three terms seems absurd. Essentially, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution states that a president can only be elected to two terms in office. To most of us, the question is not even in the realm of reality. We don’t even think about it. Serving a maximum of two terms is a a given. Given everything that has happened over the last three years, however, I believe we need to begin to entertain this possibility.
The House of Representatives Intelligence Committee delivered its final report on Tuesday seeking the impeachment of President Donald Trump. He is accused of abusing his position as the US president by requesting foreign interference in the nation’s presidential election scheduled for next year.
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump described French President Emmanuel Macron’s statement that NATO was “brain dead” as “very offensive.” In an interview with The Economist in November, Macron stated that NATO is in a “brain dead” state, due to a lack of strategic coordination between European allies on the one hand, and the United States and Turkey on the other.
What would make a Political Analyst leave their long chosen Democratic Party and give allegiance to the Republican party? Good question.
Michael Clark, the Analyst spoken of here, gave a very good reason, and after a brief phone conversation, he sent the following email message containing these remarks. Mr. Clark, until just days ago was a Democrat and cast his votes to the Democratic party. He is also a Journalist and Contributor to various news outlets, and a well respected Christian Minister. Here are some of his reasons for switching his allegiance to the Republican party and some very interesting truths about the Democratic Party, from the Obama Administration to the present day.
US President Donald Trump and his lawyers will not attend the first public hearing on impeachment to which they have been invited by the House of Representatives, the White House confirmed on Sunday. After two months of investigations, the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee begins on Wednesday the legal debate to determine if the allegations against the president are serious enough to justify the opening of a political trial.
