JOHN GLENN, A TRUE AMERICAN HERO HAS PASSED AWAY …
Astronaut, aviator, US Senator and American icon and hero, John Glenn has passed away at the age of 95. Glenn died at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, surrounded by family including his wife Annie. What a remarkable life. As a Marine Corps pilot, Glenn broke the transcontinental flight speed record before being the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. Then, 36 years later at age 77 in 1998, becoming the oldest man in space as a member of the seven-astronaut crew of the shuttle Discovery. In a time in which we all dreamed of growing up to be astronauts, John Glenn made that a possibility. He is a national treasure and will be missed. Farewell to an American hero … Godspeed, John Glenn.
His legend is otherworldly and now, at age 95, so is John Glenn.
An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.
He, along with fellow aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright and moon-walker Neil Armstrong, truly made Ohio first in flight.
“John Glenn is, and always will be, Ohio’s ultimate hometown hero, and his passing today is an occasion for all of us to grieve,” said Ohio Gov. John R. Kasich. “As we bow our heads and share our grief with his beloved wife, Annie, we must also turn to the skies, to salute his remarkable journeys and his long years of service to our state and nation.
The John Glenn Story
Sadly, with the passing of John Glenn, this means that all of the original 7 astronauts chosen to lead the fledgling US space program in 1959 are now dead. They were the last of a dying breed of space explorers who were larger than life. Maybe this will wake NASA up and they can get back to doing what NASA was intended to do.

MAYBE HOLLYWOOD AND THE LEFT CAN TAKE A QUEUE FROM TOM HANKS … ’We are going to be all right’
While being awarded at the Museum of Modern Art 9th annual film benefit actor Tom Hanks said the following, “This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second. I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.” What a novel concept, rooting for America and place it over party. The Oscar-award winning actor was also recently selected among 21 key figures to be awarded the highest civilian honor in the United States, the 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
A week after the election, with many New Yorkers still feeling uneasy about the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, a number of entertainment industry luminaries gathered at the Museum of Modern Art to honor Tom Hanks with the organization’s ninth annual Film Benefit, presented by Chanel.
The election results, a surprising outcome for many who opposed Trump, led MoMA’s chief film curator Rajendra Roy to scrap many of his planned jokes, he said, and just proclaim, “Thank God for Tom Hanks.”
Prior to the presidential election, Hanks spoke out against Trump’s lewd Access Hollywood comments, saying he was “offended as a man” and criticizing the then-Republican nominee for his lack of government experience. But speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the black carpet leading into the gala, he reiterated what he’d said in April on CBS This Morning, and what he would later say in his speech, that the country and its people would be OK.
“This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second,” Hanks told THR. “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.”
The actor also made it clear that he’d heard Michael Moore’s suggestion that Hanks run for president and he wasn’t too happy about it, indicating he felt he was unfit for the position.
“Not to be completely, over and over coming back to the same thing that I would like to strangle Michael Moore on in offering my name in order to be something other than a CPA, which I’m not qualified to be either,” Hanks said onstage. “We will take everything that has been handed to us as Americans, and we will turn our nation and we will turn the future and we turn all the work that we have before us into some brand of a thing of beauty.”
ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS AND FIGURE OUT THIS ELECTION, IS THE UNITED STATES STILL A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND A NATION OF LAWS.
From Neil Cavuto comes the following video, Coast to Coast illegal alien asking President Barack Obama if she should fear voting, because immigration will come and get her and her family and deport them. The question to a sitting president of the United States is whether a “non-citizen” votes in an election whether they and their family will be rounded up and deported. Obama says no. WTF!!! Obama says because you vote, you are a citizen. WHAT?!? You vote because you are a citizen. Obama just basically said that illegals can vote and nothing will happen to you. Obama’s comments do not even border on criminal, they are criminal.
THIS IS UNREAL. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
Flashback: Jesse Jackson Praised Donald Trump in 1998-1999 for Lifetime of Helping African American Community (VIDEO)
WHAT DEMOCRATS AND HILLARY CLINTON DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE AND KNOW ABOUT THE REAL DONALD TRUMP …
Isn’t it amazing when one runs for office how the political narrative changes from the liberal MSM and Democrats, especially when you are a Republican and your name is Donald Trump. Take a look at the video below where Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow-PUSH Coalition is praising Donald Trump back in 1999 for his help that he provided to the back community. In the video Trump praises the construction efforts of black and minority workers. But now that Trump is running for president he is suddenly some how a bigot and a racist. Its the same old, tired and pathetic attacks from the LEFT and the fear tactics they use.
So what are you going to believe America, especially those in the black community, a bias media and Democrat party that has done nothing for your vote for the past 50 years or Donald Trump, a man who has actually worked with and his a lifetime of helping the black American communities? If Donald Trump is so bad as the media would have you believe, why was the Reverend Jesse Jackson singing Trump’s praises? Give that a good thought when you cast a vote.
In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.”
In 1998, Jackson introduced Trump ahead of his speech at the conference.
“We need your building skills, your gusto,” Jackson told the real estate mogul before stating Trump is a model for “people on Wall Street to represent diversity.”
You can watch Trump’s 1998 speech over at C-SPAN’s website.
DONALD TRUMP, “I AM YOUR VOICE” …
Donald Trump spoke to the “Forgotten” people of America last night who no longer have a voice, Trump states, “I am your voice!” It is what the establishment in both parties have still not gotten, the Democrats have not figured out, the liberals are completely blind to and the pundits in the liberal MSM and many on the other side as well still refuse to get … Donald Trump has tapped into the ‘Sleeping Giant” that is the silent majority of Americans who are fed up.
Donald Trump accepts GOP nomination, Part 2
The Manhattan mogul sold himself as the champion of a downtrodden working class — “America’s blue-collar billionaire” as one speaker called him earlier in the evening — promising to restore “law and order” and casting himself as a change agent against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“I am your voice,” he boomed, pointing straight toward the television audience.
“Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. Never ever,” Trump said. “My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now.”
Trump delivered a deeply negative speech that described a darkening America. He spoke of spiking crime, “third-world” airports, growing trade deficits, “chaos in our communities,” and terrorism on the home front. Abroad, he said, the situation was “worse than it has ever been before.”
“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,” he said.
