Protests against our national anthem reached new lows last week when an unidentified man “took a knee” on the White House lawn as the national anthem was performed.  He was attending a patriotic celebration originally meant to honor the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

With the prominence and support Bernie Sanders achieved in the last presidential election cycle, and the fascination of so many of the young voters find in him and other socialist political hopefuls, the possibility of a socialist administration at some time in the future cannot be ignored.

In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians and race hustlers, it's not long before the magical words "diversity" and "inclusiveness" drop from their lips. Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diversity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas.

Remember when President Trump was on the campaign trail and he made the assertions that America would get back to winning. He stated that we would be winning so very much that we would ask him to stop winning. Now, to the casual observer, such as myself, I was thinking, “Hmm, this is starting to sound like a very bad Charlie Sheen routine.” And admit it, many of you who were not at any campaign rallies probably grimaced, thinking the whole “winning” thing was a tad bit over the top. Boy howdy, were we ever wrong! What we have witnessed in the first 500 days of the Trump administration is resoundingly incredible. Yes, we are indeed winning.

It’s no secret that President Trump has shaken up the Washington, DC establishment in his first 500 days in office. His less than conventional administration is clearly less worried about political niceties and protocol and is squarely focused on creating millions of new jobs. The Trump economy is squashing unemployment rates down to their lowest levels in 18 years – 3.8 percent. 223,000 private-sector jobs were created in May alone. Since President Trump’s election, businesses have added over three million new, private-sector jobs.
