Author’s Commentary: I watched President Elect Trump’s first press conference today. Of course, just as one would expect some reporters tore into him. He has done more than some past Presidents have done in regards to “conflicts of interests” and turned over the function/management of his personal businesses and interest to family members and put other interests into Trusts. President Elect Trump even went as far as to have any payments from his hotels (foreign hotels too?) to be given to the American Treasury. This was an interesting move to say the least. Go and view the conference and listen and judge for yourself if he is doing a lot to deal conflict of interests. Watch here
Author’s Commentary: We embark on a new year in 2017 and a new Presidential Administration. This year can be filled with new hopes, dreams, ambitions, and accomplishments for our families and country. The most important forethought is to keep “God First” and to study His Word to find ourselves approved by Him; not mankind. It is with God’s grace and mercy He has given us a chance to turn this country around for the betterment of all Americans. It is only with His guidance and our repenting of our sins as a nation that this here land will turn around. There is much work to do and it will take every American to accomplish this. My prayer is that we will come together and reach out first to God and then to one another in peace and friendship to move forward as the prosperous, strong and helpful nation as have been to be in the past decades.
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19
Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
