Hit Piece for Today

Today’s hit piece, courtesy of the controlled corporate media and the Deep State, suggests the Secret Service cannot afford to protect Trump and his family. Of course the media makes no mention of Obama’s golf games and his multi-million dollar vacations. Nor do they investigate why the head of the Secret Service can’t budget properly.

Expect another hit piece tomorrow and the next day and the day after . . ..

 

Exclusive for tomorrow: World Super-Villain Donald J. Trump Eats an Extra Slice of Apple Pie!!!!!!!

August 21: U.S. Presidents

August 21
U.S. Presidents

642.
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
~President John Adams

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
~President Abraham Lincoln

“Guatemala Series” by Day Williams

My family and I went with the Carson City United Methodist Church to the town of La Union in Guatemala to deliver water filters and teach the villagers how to use them. Our goal was to prevent and minimize water-based infections and diseases.

August 21: Teacher

 TEACHER

Morning snow falls,

Motors chug-chug:

He rises from his bed

And brushes his teeth,

bare feet cold on the hardwood floor.

Books underarm,

his students scuffle and shuffle

through the drifts

to the schoolhouse

where icicles grow on eaves.

He reads in Jeremiah,

drinks coffee,

prepares the lesson plan,

and pulls on his boots.

Each day

he penetrates

innocent eyes, And desires those eyes

to grow deep

and yet retain

their wide wonder.

He imparts and gains

knowledge and feeling in equal measure

to three grades.

They love his love of Shakespeare

and Twain,

His stories from the northern woods

And his jokes about the Presidents;

They revel in his love of God and language,

His leather voice

cracking

on gray afternoons . . .

August 21: “Miracles of Jesus” (3/12) by Day Williams

III.

His fame increased. One evening he said, “Steer
The boat from here down to the other shore,”
So they went; the waves rose and the winds whizzed
While Jesus in the stern was fast asleep

Upon a cushion and the boat was sinking,
And they said, “Teacher, don’t you care if we
Drown?” and he got up, rebuked the wind
And told the waves to quiet down, as though

He spoke as dad to son who’s done a prank.
The wind and waves subsided to a breeze,
Then they were calm. He’d stretched disciples’ minds,
As God will do to those who come to know

Him, and they asked, “Who is this who can tell
The wind and waves to quiet down, and they
Were scared, yet to the territory of
The Gadarenes they walked with Him, when men,

Two men possessed by demons, men who dwelt
In tombs, came, screamed, “Why do you come our way
And interfere with us, God’s Son? You’d love
To torture us before the time comes when

We will be punished. If you cast us out,
Then cast us in that herd of pudgy pigs
That feeds on that hill!” “Go, then,” He commanded,
And demons left the men, went in the herd,

Which plunged down that steep hillside and was drowned
In water; herdsman ran to town, so big
This was, and people did not understand
And begged Him to depart, as they preferred.
