Honoring Those Who Have Earned It On this Veterans Day, America's New Generation of Patriots

Trump Transition Team Launches Website President-elect Donald Trump's transition team has launched a new website and Twitter account as the Republican prepares to take office.

President-Elect Donald Trump called President Barack Obama a "very good man" as the two long-time antagonists met in the Oval Office in a ritual epitomizing the peaceful transfer of power. Obama said the two men talked about foreign policy and domestic policy and that he was encouraged by Trump's interest in working together during the transition. "My No. 1 priority in the next two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our President-elect is successful," Obama said. As the two men sat in the Oval Office, Obama told Trump: "If you succeed, the country succeeds." Trump thanked Obama for the meeting, which he said had originally been scheduled for 10-15 minutes but instead ran about 90 minutes."Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you, and I look forward to being with you many, many more times," Trump said. The President-elect also said he would seek counsel from Obama. Trump is also scheduled to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell while in Washington.

CNN-Lets-A-Truth-Bomb-Slip: Socialist Advantage Behind Riots/Protests: Wednesday night, CNN heavily covered the stories of people across America protesting the presidential election results. The impression left on many viewers was that the protests were spontaneous and organic. But in between interviewing protesters about their beefs, CNN reporter Jean Casarez dropped a truth bomb: “This was promoted by Socialist Advantage and one of the things they said the purpose of this rally was for was, was to not only protest the election of Donald Trump the 45th president of the United States but also to protest that the Democratic party had let them down.”

Revenge-Of-The-Forgotten-Class Hillary Clinton and the Democrats were playing with fire when they effectively wrote off white workers in the small towns and cities of the Rust Belt.

Top Dem Reveals 1st Casualty Of Obama Legacy Barack Obama once famously declared "elections have consequences," and now the lame-duck president is getting a taste of his own medicine. One of his long-sought dreams just went belly-up -- and Donald Trump didn't even have to lift a finger …

Trump to Evangelicals: I won't let you down[Church] Evangelicals turned out for Donald Trump on Election Day and a prominent pastor who backed him says the president-elect won't forget it

Yavapai County GOP Activist Jim Dutton: I read this in the Briefs. Congresswoman Martha McSally: As one of my biggest supporters, I'd like to say thank you. Without the help of friends and supporters like you, yesterday's major victory would not have been possible. Your commitment to my campaign ensured that we had the resources needed to get out my positive message and power us through Election Day — and I couldn't be more grateful. Frosty, I have been working hard since I took office to get results and I'm looking forward to building on the progress we've already made. I am continuously humbled by the opportunity to serve and I remind myself every day why I was sent to Washington — to make a difference — and I'm honored to have this responsibility at such a critical time for our country. As we both know, there is so much more work to get done in order to set our country on a better path. I am dedicated to ensuring we leave our country in a better place for the next generations. Again, Frosty, thank you for your support. I promise that I will continue to bring commonsense solutions to Washington and serve with integrity and honor. It has been my personal observation that McSally votes with the Democrats far more often than she does the Republicans.  All the key votes in Congress this past session will up hold my statement.  She needs a strong reminder of what our Party stands for and against. God bless. Editor’s Note: Jim: I, too, have noticed that McSally frequently votes with the Dems.

CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS

300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake on two Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) reports confirming allegations of wait time manipulation and mismanagement at the Southern VA Health Care System: “The results of these VA OIG reports are deeply disturbing, and confirm that the problems plaguing our VA health care system nationwide extend to Southern Arizona. According to investigators, VA staff were improperly trained and directed to zero-out patient wait times in violation of VA policy – at one point leaving more than 75 appointments zeroed-out between December 2013 and August 2014. A separate investigation found employees failed to properly schedule approximately 400 Orthopedic appointment requests, as well as an additional 600 Urology appointment requests. Moreover, the OIG confirmed widespread scheduling misconduct, including in some cases cancelling appointments if wait times exceeded 30 days. The gross mismanagement by employees at the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System and at our VA hospitals in Arizona and across the country are unacceptable. We urge the new administration and Congress to take this issue very seriously, and finally deliver accountability and real reform at the VA that our veterans deserve.”
