THE WALL AND THE SHUTDOWN.  We all pray that our leaders in Washington will come to their senses and end this totally unnecessary and  tremendously harmful partial Government shut-down!  It is outrageous as the "walls" seem to be closing ever tighter on the Special Counsel's investigation of this President's Untruths and Misdeeds, that he distracts by manufacturing a border crisis holding hostage both hundreds of innocent Refugees and the paychecks of hundreds of thousands of federal workers simply to pander to a shrinking base of support to build "his wall"!

 

Hope to hear from you NEXT WEEK Thursday January 17th at 7pm!
