Give Honor Where Honor is Due

“Pay to all what is owed to them: …, respect to whom respect is owed,
honor to whom honor is owed.”
(Romans 13:7)

News that is being reported to us is so very often bad, and sometimes even worse because it is made up out of thin air to fit the narrative of a leftist agenda. Rarely do the reports published these days carry excellent news, hence the need for the purpose of this editorial. There is much negativity written about Donald Trump but not enough recognition for the outstanding things he did for our country. Whether you love him or hate him it is not acceptable to bypass his outstanding achievements.

In this article I wish to point out President Trump’s historical accomplishments. His resolution to make things happen for the betterment of the country is undeniable even in the face of such virulent attacks from before he became president. In just four years he managed to remake the federal judiciary, rebuild the American economy, reshape the Middle East, end the ISIS caliphate, educate Americans on China’s true goals, redirect allied defense contributions, bring American troops home, end Iran’s free pass on nuclear weapons, halt North Korean out-of-control missile and nuclear tests, secure the southern border, affirm fundamentals in our Bill of Rights, including free speech, free exercise of religion, freedom of assembly, the Second Amendment, and transparency in criminal justice. He could care less about being politically correct in public dialogue, something that had muzzled truth in the public square for far too long. Granted, he was unpolished but authentic in times when words had become plastic and too often untruthful. Trump ‘unmasked’ the toxic mainstream media and educated America and the world on its falsehoods, bias, dishonesty and certainly its partisanship. He is the most pro-life president we have had in a long time; he defended the illustrious Founding Fathers and paid tribute to our veterans and law enforcement. He paid tribute to our nation’s exceptional entrepreneurial and sacrificial spirit. Above all, he didn’t apologize to the world for America’s greatness. On the contrary, he wanted to ‘Make America great again’.

President Trump fought for and passed the largest tax relief bill since Ronald Reagan and rolled back burdensome federal regulations to trigger the fastest economic recovery on record, which boosted employment across every sector and demographic, increasing business creation, personal income, and stocks and returning U.S. business and revenue from abroad. He cut corporate taxes from 35 percent to 21 percent creating a powerful incentive to hire, rehire, invest and reinvest. Labor productivity increased, which the liberal economists had said was “impossible”, and inflation was kept in check while the growth exploded. Miraculously, the middle class was strengthened in Trump’s economy. What can we say about the wage growth? People had more money in their paychecks and pockets which brought much needed relief. Reports show that wage growth averaged a powerful $6.90 per quarter. Incredibly, even when the coronavirus hit, Trump’s economy kept employers and stocks afloat. In the midst of the pandemic, Trump honored the 10th Amendment which bars the federal system from the power reserved to the states and the people. His opportunity to appoint three Supreme Court justices has influenced the future of that body’s function for years to come. What can we say about creating Space Force as a new military branch since 1947? Included in his accomplishments is killing two of the most infamous terrorist leaders, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qasem Soleimani. He realigned the Republican Party bringing in more former Democrats, Blacks, Hispanics and Asians, and many other minority voters, law enforcement, union members, encouraging young and old alike to more patriotism and love of country, our constitutional freedoms and opportunities.

Americans will have this president to thank for opening their eyes to no longer accept their federal government without oversight. Trump brought hope to many who had lost it. The list of his accomplishments is too long to mention.

To put all this into perspective, while some presidents have done more over two terms, few have done as much in one.

Now, our mission is to look backward with much gratitude to this man who endured and sacrificed so much for us because he didn’t need this. He already had wealth, power and fame but, at this time in his life, he wanted to thank and serve the country that had given it all to him.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you President Trump and Trump family!
