Peter D'amico, a fine artist

It took me a very long time to buy a Peter D'amico painting. Although I always loved and admired his art for years, it just didn't go with my decor which is all animal and earth tones. But when he died a few weeks ago, I bought this painting and actually found a spot where it "works."

Proceeds from the sale of his paintings (only three are left..Click here to view) at the House of Frames on Lake Avenue will go towards Peter D'amico's cremation costs at All County.

If you want to have a lovely colorful piece of art that will go towards a good cause, visit the House of Frames, 1510 Lake Avenue.


Trump at NATO

NATO is an Alliance that consists of 28 independent member countries across North America and Europe, the newest of which, Albania and Croatia, joined in April 2009. An additional 22 countries participate in NATO's Partnership for Peace program, with 15 other countries involved in institutionalized dialogue programs. The combined military spending of all NATO members constitutes over 70% of the global total. Members' defense spending is supposed to amount to at least 2% of GDP

Trump Poll numbers slightly up

Not that I particularly like polls--they are somewhat suspect to me ever since Donald Trump's win on election night. The polls got it all wrong leading up to November 8, 2016. Remember that Clinton was predicted to win by an 84 percent chance while Trump had a 16 percent chance, according to The Upshot  Well, we all know how that all turned out.

On Wednesday, Rasmussen Reports released its daily presidential tracking poll, putting Trump at a 48 percent approval rating. That’s a four-point jump in two days from Rasmussen, and a five point increase from his recent low of 43 percent on May 16.

Minnesota Muslim Jihadists

"Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, said the incident in Minneapolis very well could indicate the tip of a very dangerous iceberg.

Local law enforcement knows that the Minneapolis neighborhood of Cedar-Riverside already functions as a Somali enclave known as 'Little Mogadishu,' where Shariah prevails, not U.S. constitutional law, or Minnesota law or Minneapolis municipal law.

It is, in effect, a no-go zone, where local police must be wary for their security if they enter in uniforms or police cruisers, Lopez said. It is a place that exports jihadist suicide bombers to Islamic terror groups like al-Shabaab and the Islamic State.

Now is the time to act. Police should use the arrests of the two jihadists as a pretext to go in and clean out the neighborhood, Lopez said."

Read about these Jihadists... who live in an American town under Sharia Law where the police fear to tread and our Constitution doesn't matter.

Why aren't we doing anything about it? Ask the next politically correct liberal you meet.

ISIS in Philippines--Duterte declares Martial Law in Mindanao

“Anyone now holding a gun, confronting the government with violence, my orders are spare no one, let us solve the problems of Mindanao once and for all," Duterte said Wednesday.
“If I think you should die, you will die. If you fight us, you will die. If there's an open defiance, you will die, and if it means many people dying, so be it. That's how it is,” he added.

ISIS is sneaking closer to our country and operating their mayhem in the Northern hemisphere. At least seven police officers were killed in Marawi by ISIS. President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire island of Mindanao under martial law for 60 days after battles between government troops and the Maute (ISIS) in Marawi escalated

The Philippines is located in both the northern and eastern hemispheres, and positioned off the southeastern coast of Asia, directly east of Vietnam and northeast of Malaysia.  Hawaii is in the Northern Hemisphere.

$1,000,000 Dinner Celebration

The Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars and the Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation celebrated the one million dollar level of awarding scholarships to deserving students at Lake Worth high. There is also the Barry Grunow Fund that awards scholarships to Palm Beach County students who want to pursue education as their profession.

Held at the beautiful Atlantis Country Club, the room was filled with those who have helped contribute towards this million dollar success.

Dr. Annette Gilbert, class of 1975 and now the Guidance Counselor at Lake Worth High and a LWHS Alumni Board member along with her son Brandon, Class of 2001, performed the song, "The Greatest Love of All."  The high school chorus gave an outstanding performance as well.

Its founding president Dennis Dorsey spoke, as well as David Cantley, former principal of the school who talked to us about the Dollars for Scholars history. Harold Gilmore, class of 1947, is the president of the LWHS Alumni Foundation and the master of ceremonies for Tuesday night's festivities.

Many there were politicians, past and present from the PB county school board, present commissioners Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell and Commissioner Herman Robinson from Lake Worth, and former commissioners Honey Duncan and Nadine Burns. Elvis Epps, the new principal of Lake Worth High School was also there enjoying the evening as well as Bradley Harper, our newly elected judge in Palm Beach County's 15th Circuit Court, a former recipient of a scholarship.

Bitching about everything Trump - Now it's the Budget

While the whole world is focused on the horrors of Manchester, the liberals prepare for their assault on the President’s budget. Their plan will be to grow every entitlement program at the cost of the military. In this article, Allen West takes us to where the military is right now and then where it should be. You will also understand the tactics of the Democrat party as they buy their votes with your dollars.

What's the Budget priority?  More Food Stamps or Vanquishing the Enemy?

Read Allen West's article

Even while the president was on his Mid-East trip building bridges, the news media was focused on bashing him on the firing of James Comey and the fabricated Russian "collusion."

And now just glancing at the headlines of the Palm Beach Post, what is their choice today as the top story? "CBO: 23M lose coverage in newer bill," rather than spotlighting a positive that this budget would reduced spending by $110 billion over 10 years.

We get all these horror stories and essentially the Left, knowing that the status quo is unsustainable (average premiums rose 105% in 2017 for Obamacare) and that we must get to a balanced budget.  They won't accept anything less than socialized medicine or Single Payer healthcare with huge premium subsidies to all, even those who are non-citizens, at the expense of our national security.
Study on Obamacare

Trump was elected not to fix what was there, but to repeal and replace healthcare and reduce our spending. Basically, liberals  want to bitch about everything Trump.

Russian-Trump Collusion

Florida Concealed Weapons Holders database hacked

By: Associated Press
May 23, 2017

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Officials say hackers may have obtained the names of more than 16,000 people who have Florida concealed weapon permits

The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services announced Monday they had discovered a data breach of the online payment system that processes payments for applications and permits.
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam has ordered a review of the department's cybersecurity measures. State law enforcement is investigating the breach, which authorities suspect originated from overseas.

The agency stated that no financial information was obtained.

The department also warned that the breach may have revealed the social security numbers of 469 customers. The agency plans on offering free credit protection for one year to these individuals.

The Florida Legislature in 2006 passed a law that made the names of concealed weapon permit holders confidential.

Damn, I'd better load this thing.

Commissioner Hardy: Parroting resident Peggy Fisher, Hardy asked, "Which information do I trust?" (William Waters or the engineering firm} Why did the city pay Kimley-Horn to do an engineering report if we can't trust them?
Commissioner Amoroso: Says if the pool is opened, we lose $600,00; if closed, we lose $300,000. If it doesn't beak even, you the tax payer is paying for it...needs to be modernized...ask about the penny sales tax to be used for project.
Vice Mayor Maxwell: "This pool has been used as a political pawn; it has been prostituted. in some ways." Concerned about the huge financial loss.
Commissioner Robinson:  "Would love to see a family friendly pool--not necessarily in that location--not interested in spending $500,000 and getting the same thing." Last night at the Atlantis Country Club, you told me you wanted to save the pool.

Now who's Ignorant?

“I won’t call them monsters because they’d like that term. They’d think that’s a great name. I will call them losers from now on because that’s what they are.”

Hannity being censored at Fox?

"Fox News host Sean Hannity has been in the hot seat over his coverage of a controversial story many are calling a conspiracy theory--the Seth Rich saga. On his radio show Tuesday he angrily and defiantly said he would press on, despite Fox News executives pulling one of the articles on the story." Read more...

Fox News has been doing a lot of weird stuff lately ever since the Murdoch brothers took over power from Daddy. We had the firing of Roger Ailes. You no longer can tgell a woman that "you look pretty in that dress today." Then came Bill O'Reilly, who, incidentally, was fair and balanced. They have been hiring more and more Alt-Left Democrats. There has been some skuttlbutt about Jesse Watters and now we have them cracking down on Sean Hannity, the top conservative voice of the station.

No one knows if Sean Hannity will be on his show tonight. And most of all, no one knows if Fox is putting the final nail in its coffin.
