"Happy Birthday, Mr. President" was a song sung by actress and singer Marilyn Monroe on Saturday, May 19, 1962, for President John F. Kennedy at a celebration of his forty-fifth (45th) birthday...How fitting that President-elect Trump received an early birthday gift yesterday, December 19, 2016, when the Electoral College cast 304 votes to confirm his presidency for the highest public office in the United States of America.
President-elect Donald Trump has been accused of being a skirt-chaser—and Marilyn Monroe, who wore a white dress in the film The Seven Year Itch, was said to be a femme fatale and having an affair with both Bobby Kennedy and JFK. The dress is regarded as an icon of film history and the image of Monroe in the white dress standing above a subway grating blowing the dress up has been described as one of the iconic images of the 20th century. In the film, the white dress appears in the sequence in which Marilyn Monroe and co-star Tom Ewell exit the Trans-Lux 52nd Street Theatre, then located at 586 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.
Trump Tower, the present home of President-elect Donald Trump, is a 58-story mixed-use skyscraper located on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets in Midtown Manhattan, New York City...Next to Marilyn Monroe's iconic pose a few blocks from today's Trump Tower, looking up "The Donald's" skirt, kilt or dirndl, his agenda seems fairly predictable.
During an interview, Jackie O. shared that JFK was a fan of the Broadway musical Camelot, which had music written by Alan Jay Lerner, one of Kennedy's schoolmates at Harvard University. "Camelot" refers to a kingdom ruled by the mythical King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In an interview, she said that "There will be great presidents again, but there will never be another Camelot." This echoed a line from the musical when the King Arthur character says, "Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief, shining moment, that was known as Camelot." Donald Trump can also be a "Camelot" as the 45th President of the United States and is a lot more flamboyant than JFK for his age. So let's take a look up his dress (or should I say his paternal German ancestry dirndl or his maternal Scottish-ancestry kilt).
As of 2016, Forbes listed President-elect Donald Trump as the 324th wealthiest person in the world (113th in the United States) with a net worth of $4.5 billion...By default, Trump's rank as the 324th wealthiest person in the world makes him NOT part of the Committee of 300--the world's richest and most powerful families.
Donald Trump's "Doctrine" on Foreign Affairs:
During his 2016 Presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly said that he opposed the Iraq War even before it was launched.
First of all, Donald Trump was not a politician in 2002 and therefore had no official vote on the war authorization (as is the case with Hillary Clinton's support of it). In 2002, when asked by Shock Jock Howard Stern during a radio show interview whether he supported invading Iraq, Trump responded, "Yeah, I guess so" and added "I wish the first time it was done correctly" in reference to the Gulf War of 1990–1991.
Instead, a reasonable person listening could only conclude that Trump probably hadn't given the matter even a passing thought and answered matter-of-factly. Because if Trump was so pro-Iraq War at the time, as he's being portrayed of being by the media in 2016, one would think he — who seemingly shares every perspective that enters his head — would be mentioning it every chance he got in other interviews, which never happens. Trump publicly referred to the war as a "mess" within a week after it began, and by 2004 he said he was opposed to it. Since 2004, he has repeatedly criticized the war, especially during the primary debates with Jeb Bush.
Trump supports increasing the United States military defense spending but favors decreasing United States spending on NATO and in the Pacific region. He says America should look inward, stop "nation-building", and re-orient its resources toward domestic needs. He questions whether he, as president, would automatically extend security guarantees to NATO members, and suggests that he might leave NATO unless changes are made to the alliance.
The Middle East and Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
David Melech Friedman (born c. 1959) is an American bankruptcy lawyer. In December 2016, he was identified as President-elect Donald Trump's choice for United States Ambassador to Israel.
In one example, Trump's nominee for US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, has vocally supported right-wing positions on settlements and moving the embassy to Jerusalem. But he could find himself in conflict with Rex Tillerson.
David Friedman, who maintains a residence in Jerusalem, is known for hardline views that depart from decades of established American policy and in some cases
are to the right of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
are to the right of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Friedman argues that Israeli settlement construction in Palestinian areas shouldn't be illegal and has called the effort to find a two-state solution an "illusion." In Trump's announcement, the bankruptcy lawyer and Orthodox Jew welcomed moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to "Israel's eternal capital, Jerusalem" -- settling in one phrase a fraught issue that has been designated for final peace talks, as Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital as well.
Rex Wayne Tillerson (born March 23, 1952) is an American engineer and businessman. He is the chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Rockefeller's BP ExxonMobil and has been named by President-elect Donald Trump as his nominee for United States Secretary of State. President-elect Donald Trump's pick for secretary of state is an oil magnate with deep ties in the Arab world and could adopt his department's more traditional views on the Middle East and the need for a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.
Trump's politics, family history, and Navy-affiliation
Donald Trump's political affiliations are as wild and wavy as his hair...He's only been a Republican from 1987-89; 2009-2011; and now 2012 to the present.
Prior to 1987, Donald Trump was a Democrat and then again for eight (8) years from 2001 to 2009; Reform Party 2011-2012; and an Independent 2011-2012.
The family name, which was formerly spelled Drumpf, was changed to Trump during the Thirty Years' War in the 17th century.
Trump is of paternal German ancestry and maternal Scottish ancestry. His mother and all his grandparents were born in Europe. His paternal grandparents were immigrants from Kallstadt, Germany, and his father, who became a New York City real estate developer, was born in the Bronx. His mother emigrated to New York from her birthplace of Tong, Lewis, Scotland. Fred and Mary met in New York and married in 1936, raising their family in Queens.
Should the sins of the father fall on the son—we think not in President-elect Donald Trump's case!
Trump's development company built and managed single-family houses in Queens, Navy barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast, and more than 27,000 apartments in New York City.
During his business career, Fred Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate Banking Committee and Federal Housing Administration (1954) for windfall profiteering from FHA mortgage gouging off public contracts. Fred Trump was also investigated by the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division (1973) for civil rights violations — and was the subject of critique by his tenant, noted folk icon Woody Guthrie.
Fred Trump's development company built and managed single-family houses in Queens, Navy barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast—and more than 27,000 apartments in New York City.
In 2015, he told a biographer that NYMA gave him "more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military".
Donald Trump learned a few tricks from the JESUITS, who specialize in psychological warfare and propaganda, when he attended the Jesuits' Fordham University in the Bronx for two years, beginning in August 1964. He then transferred to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which offered one of the few real estate studies departments in United States academia at the time. While there, he worked at the family's company, Elizabeth Trump & Son, named for his paternal grandmother. He graduated from Penn in May 1968 with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics.
Joseph Wharton (March 3, 1826 – January 11, 1909) was a Quaker and an American industrialist. He was involved in mining, manufacturing, and education. He founded the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, co-founded the Bethlehem Steel company, and was one of the founders of Swarthmore College.
Joseph Wharton as an industrialist built the U.S. Navy's ships and war vessels with his American company Bethlehem Steel (where U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Robert's father served as an executive for many years).
WHARTON BUILT THE U.S. WARSHIPS FOR WWI AND WWII; AND CHIEF SUPREME COURT JUSTICE JOHN G. ROBERTS' FATHER WAS AN EXECUTIVE AT BETHLEHEM STEEL FOR MANY YEARS.
The Philadelphia Experiment is an alleged military experiment that is said to have been carried out by the U.S. Navy at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania sometime around October 28, 1943. The U.S. Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge (DE-173) was claimed to have been rendered invisible (or "cloaked") to enemy devices. Trump's uncle, John G. Trump, was a professor at MIT from 1936 to 1973 and helped the Allies with radar research during WWII. When inventor Nikola Tesla was found dead at his flat at the New Yorker Hotel in NYC in 1943, the FBI called John G. Trump to study Tesla's scientific papers. Nikola Tesla is best known for developing radio and wireless power supply to Navy ships and the technology used today on the HAARP and U.S. Navy's SBX-1 Mobile Platform, which has been accused by NASA scientists of being a weather modification weapon that triggers Tsunamis, earthquakes, and seismic phenomenon. NIKOLA TESLA DIED MYSTERIOUSLY IN JANUARY 1943 at the Hotel New Yorker after JP Morgan and Thomas Edison sabotaged his laboratories and stole his earlier inventions.
So, all this time folks have been bashing British Petroleum when we should have been bashing ourselves. Not because of the consumption issues and 'green earth' politics, but because the Rockefeller family owns British Petroleum (BP).
Exxon Mobil Corporation is an American multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Irving, Texas, which is a part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. It is the largest direct descendant of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company.

The OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCE in American (US) tax law is an allowance claimable by anyone with an economic interest in a mineral deposit or standing timber. The principle is that the asset is a capital investment that is a wasting asset, and therefore depreciation can reasonably be offset (effectively as a capital loss) against income. The OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCE has been a subject of controversy, for two main reasons. Firstly the relationship of BIG OIL COMPANIES with the US government. Secondly the fact that one of the two methods of claiming the allowance makes it possible to write off more than the whole capital cost of the asset. President John F. Kennedy (JFK) and Bobby Kennedy wanted to end the Vietnam War and C.I.A., and end the private Federal Reserve and OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCE for rich Texas Oil Barons. NOTE: LBJ and Gerald Ford were not elected U.S. Presidents.
President John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy and William E. Colby were deeply critical of the decision to abandon support for Republic of Vietnam President Ngo Dinh Diem, who was assassinated three weeks before the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. George H.W. Bush was the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations for two years, beginning in 1971. William E. Colby served as C.I.A. director from 1973 to 1976. After Watergate and Vietnam, President Ford brought George H.W. Bush back to Washington to become Director of the C.I.A., replacing William E. Colby, who was later found dead after a series of Senate hearings looking into Vietnam. Dick Cheney served as assistant to Donald Rumsfeld from 1969 to 1975, during the Nixon/Ford years. George H.W. Bush was a director of the Muslim Brotherhood's Council on Foreign Relations 1977-79. In April 1980, Dick Cheney endorsed Governor Ronald Wilson Reagan (666) for President. Dick Cheney was the director of the Muslim Brotherhood's Council on Foreign Relations (CFR);1987-89 and 1993-95—and Secretary of Defense 1989 to 1993 under President George H. W. Bush.
Dick Cheney's Halliburton Company is an American multinational corporation, and one of the world's largest oil field services companies, with operations in more than 80 countries. It owns hundreds of subsidiaries, affiliates, branches, brands, and divisions worldwide and employs approximately 70,000 people. The company has dual headquarters located in Houston and Dubai, where Chairman and CEO David Lesar works and resides, "to focus [the] company’s Eastern Hemisphere Growth." The company remains incorporated in the United States.
President-elect Donald J. Trump chose Andrew F. Puzder, CEO of the company that franchises the fast-food outlets Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., as Secretary of Labor.
On policy questions, he has argued that the Obama administration’s recent rule expanding eligibility for overtime pay diminishes opportunities for workers, and that significant minimum wage increases would hurt small businesses and lead to job losses.
He has criticized paid sick leave policies of the sort recently enacted for federal contractors and strongly supports repealing the Affordable Care Act, which he says has created a “government-mandated restaurant recession” because rising premiums have left people with less money to spend dining out.
Speaking to Business Insider this year, Mr. Puzder said that increased automation could be a welcome development because machines were “always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall or an age, sex or race discrimination case.”
Carl’s Jr. Features Bacon and Threesomes in Sleazy New Ad
The provocative ad spot features former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Genevieve Morton, along with social media babes Emily Sears and Elena Belle
And on the political incorrectness front, Mr. Puzder’s company, CKE Restaurants, runs advertisements that frequently feature women wearing next to nothing while gesturing suggestively. “I like our ads,” he told the publication Entrepreneur. “I like beautiful women eating burgers in bikinis. I think it’s very American.”
Richard L. Trumka, president of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., said Mr. Puzder was “a man whose business record is defined by fighting against working people.”
President-elect Donald J. Trump should cut Andrew F. Puzder as Secretary of Labor!
Trump on Social Security and Medicare
President-elect Donald Trump promised to protect Social Security and Medicare during the election, but if his pick for director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is any indication, that will be another promise that he won’t keep.
Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a Republican from South Carolina, has introduced numerous bills that have attempted to cut government spending, particularly on Medicare and Social Security. His argument has been that the programs need to be reformed in order to avoid bankruptcy.
As OMB director, Mulvaney would play a crucial role in shaping the national budget and determining which government agencies are allowed to issue regulations.
During a Republican primary debate in March, Trump promised to “do everything within my power not to touch Social Security, to leave it the way it is.” Similarly the Trump campaign told CNN Money in August that “we will not cut Medicare or Social Security benefits, but protect them both.”
Trump on the Environment
Over the past century, the Federal government has pumped more than $470 Billion into the OIL and GAS industry in the form of generous, never-expiring tax breaks.
Starting in 1916, as America was falling in love with the invention of the automobile, Congress passed legislation allowing oil companies to write off intangible drilling expenses. In 1926, Congress passed the "OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCE," allowing oil companies to write off one-quarter of their gross sales from crude oil. Between 1975 and 1977, the Federal government approved fracking to extract oil and gas. And Federal tax law allows BP to write off $15 Billion of the $18.7 Billion in fines from the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill began on April 20, 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Rockefellers' ExxonMobil has been criticized for its slow response to cleanup efforts after the 1989 Exxon Valdez OIL SPILL IN ALASKA, widely considered to be one of the world's worst oil spills in terms of damage to the environment. ExxonMobil has a history of lobbying for climate change denial and against the idea that global warming is caused by the burning of fossil fuels. The company has also been the target of accusations of improperly dealing with human rights issues, influence on American foreign policy, and its impact on the future of nations.
Trump's NEEDS to pick new Evangelical advisors other than TV evangelist Kenneth Copeland, James Robison, Tony Palmer, John Arnott and Joel Osteen—ALL who are delusional !!!
'James Robison said he was so moved by Pope Francis’ message of ecumenism that he asked the translator to ask Francis for a high-five. The pope obliged, raised his arm and the two men smacked hands....TV Evangelist Joel Osteen’s meeting with Francis three weeks earlier was part of a larger gathering coordinated by the International Foundation, also known as “the Fellowship.”'
During a three-hour meeting of Pope Francis and Texas televangelists Kenneth Copeland and James Robison, just weeks after the pontiff met with televangelist Joel Osteen and other religious leaders, James Robison said he was so moved by Pope Francis’ message of ecumenism that he asked the translator to ask Francis for a high-five. The pope obliged, raised his arm and the two men smacked hands....TV Evangelist Joel Osteen’s meeting with Francis three weeks earlier was part of a larger gathering coordinated by the International Foundation, also known as “the Fellowship.” Osteen was joined by Utah Sen. Mike Lee, a Mormon; California pastor Tim Timmons; and Gayle D. Beebe, president of evangelical Westmont College. The meeting leaned particularly toward charismatic ecumenism. Other guests were Anthony Palmer, a bishop and international ecumenical officer with the independent Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches; Geoff Tunnicliffe, Secretary-General for the World Evangelical Alliance from 2005 - 2014; and John and Carol Arnott of Catch the Fire Toronto, which grew out of a Pentecostal revival 20 years ago.
Copeland was unavailable for comment about his meeting with the pope, but in an address to his congregation, he played a recording from Pope Francis speaking on a smartphone camera and called on Roman Catholics and Evangelical Christians to set aside their differences. Copeland led his congregation in prayer where many spoke in tongues, a common Pentecostal practice.

When Copeland introduced Cruz, he told attendees that God had chosen Ted Cruz to win the White House. “I believe, with all my heart, that his son is called and anointed to be the next president of the United States,” said Copeland, in comments first covered by Right Wing Watch.

These so-called "men and women of God" are ALL promoting reunification of ALL Evangelical (Bible-believing Christians over so-called "Papal Infallibility") churches with the New Holy Roman Empire of the Vatican, Roman Catholic Church and "The Beast" aka the antichrist Global system of syncretized politics and religion.
The Truth will set us FREE indeed (John 8:31-32)--and part of the Truth is family values, morality, social responsibility and defending the unborn and Faith in God and His Word (CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT REBUKING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD—Proverbs 27:5-10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; 2 Corinthians 11:3-15; 2 Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; Peter 3:9; Jude 1:3-4).
A CALL TO BECOME A “BORN AGAIN” CHRISTIAN: If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer: "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!" If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a religious sect, Protestant or Roman Catholic or Eastern Orthodox Catholic religion). PLEASE GET INTO A BIBLE-BASED CHURCH.
With a degree in economics from Wharton, having attended a military academy for grammar and high school, two years under the JESUITS; and a Roman Catholic VP, Mike Pence (who is a newbie "Born-again Roman Catholic" † with no home church); as well as having TV Evangelist Kenneth Copeland as his "Evangelical advisor," let's keep a watchful eye on President-elect Donald Trump.
Trump on the United States Supreme Court
At least one core Conservative objective of President-elect Donald Trump seems assured -- appointing a likeminded justice to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
