Truth on Trump

Featured

09 28 2020

Welcome to News which is published every Monday and Friday.

Today’s news regards President Trump’s accomplishments and the facts regarding him, his administration, Covid-19, the economy, and more. If you didn’t watch the video please do so, it gives an overall view.

Soon the first debate will take place. I have no qualms about Trump vs. Biden but hiding in the reeds are network ‘bobbleheads’ and so-called factcheckers that will attempt to discredit anything the President says. Not that Trump will be clobbered, after all he did survive 2016 and won the presidency.

But the NeverTrumpers are not above using lies and distortions to discredit the President. That means that all of us have to be alert to the truth, which is one of the reasons I wrote Trump an Outsider’s View. Although conservative and a Trump supporter I have done my best to present the facts and let the reader decide what is truth and what is not.

There is an argument out there that this is not the most important election. I’ve read it and don’t buy into their argument. This election is critical because most of the gains that President Trump has achieved for our country are by decree. The next President can override them.

What Does That Mean?

It means that the next president can issue his own decrees which would supersede whatever President Trump has done. That covers a lot of ground including our economy, the wall, immigration, and more.

Are there other reasons it is critical?

Yes. The swamp still needs drained. The House Democrats in particular have shown that they are not fit for office. Good people elected them to do their job which is to legislate. Instead they have used government time, energy, and money to undermine and try to destroy a duly elected President. The American people see through all their actions and need to sweep them out of office!

In addition, while President Trump has accomplished much, he still has more to do. One thing is to rebuild the economy from the shutdown. He is already doing that, but he needs more time. Further, he also has more to accomplish both domestically and internationally.

The First Debate is About Taxes. What about them?

I expect to hear the same old Democratic arguments that are always made against Republicans without supporting facts. That is that the tax breaks are just for the rich. Tell that to the mom and pop businesses that were thriving in the Trump economy prior to Covid-19 and are beginning to get going again.

But this is a good time to take a critical look at the plan that Biden/Harris have put out there. We don’t have enough rich people to pay for that! Soak the rich historically hurts the middleclass and the lower-class workers. Why? Because just as profits trickle down the food chain so do taxes. Or the rich close up shop and leave the country which leaves us with fewer high paying jobs. It is a disaster waiting to happen.

Wouldn’t the Government Step In?

Of course, they would. It is what the liberals want. But how many governments have taken over the economy and prospered? Some have experimented and seemed to prosper for a while, but it never lasts. Eventually you run out of rich people’s money.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Calling

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Calling.

A while back, I wrote that my writing career is a calling from God. As a born-again believer since May 9, 1973 I have been aware of God’s love for me, His discipline of me, and His guidance are all expressions of His love. I also know He has a plan for me.

But most of all I am humbled by the fact that I am unworthy of such love. We are all unworthy, but God loves us and sent His Son to take our place in judgment upon a cross. But while He died so that we might be saved from eternal damnation, He also desires our very best!

It was by His grace that I was enabled to write, and it was through His grace I was ‘called’ to be a writer. What special ability or trait qualified me for such a calling? None!

If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior by asking Him to save you and enter your life, then you are born-again. And if born-again you belong to Him. If you are also a writer, then it is possible He wants to use your writing skills. Whether called to become a writer or you are already a writer, He has a plan for you!

My job, and your job, is to discover what that plan is. It may take you down roads never traveled or open vistas never seen. But submitting yourself to His will and guidance is the right place to start.

Tip of the Day : Seek God’s Will for Your Writing Career.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Renewal

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Renewal.

How have you been spending Stay-at-home?

Teresa and I have continued with her rehab, we have sought to maintain a sense of normalcy, and we have been engaged in renewal.

What Does That Mean?

As a writer I interpret Renewal to mean: An effort to review and improve on my writings. This can be as simple as writing a new book, or a more complicated review of both our writings and the marketing of our books.

Previously I have noted my return to local marketing. I believe in a balanced approach featuring local marketing and a national marketing. But the main emphasis is local. This is the place I can have the most impact.

Nationally I can purchase plans that will market our books for us, but locally I have a more hands-on approach. For example, getting our books into the local bookstore market. Instead of hoping someone will see one of our books and suddenly become a viral spokesperson, I think it makes more sense to personally and actively push our books. This means doing the hard work of finding bookstores, developing a business plan, and enacting a marketing plan.

To do this, I need to be working toward these things now (I am) so that when bookstores reopen, I’ll be ready. Our careers deserve our best efforts, our best writing, and our best marketing.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Write About Events

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Write About Events.

I write primarily either historical events and people or future events and people. But a case can be made for writing about current events. There are a lot of possibilities; here’s a few:

  • Coronavirus survival stories

A lot more people have survived this virus than have died. You could write factual or fictional stories about someone surviving.

  • Fastest government response ever

I’ve lived for almost 77 years. I’ve never seen such a fast response from Republican or Democratic administrations! This is fodder for stories about doctors, nurses, etc. risking their lives to stem the spread and save lives.

  • Impeachment fiasco

Although the trial is over, Democrats are still threatening impeachment. How about a novel based on the Steele Dossier? Or about a conspiracy to bring down the President? Plenty of information out there; some fact and some fiction.

  • Modern Terrorism

Seems like terrorism is taking place somewhere every day.

  • SpaceX and the future

I’ve actually included this is my new mystery novel. Not only can you write about SpaceX, but the new Space Force forming.

  • Election fraud

Since the government will probably never tell, why not write a novel about Hillary Clinton’s eMail server, Hillary’s use of classified information, Russian collusion (false or true, Trump or Clinton), or current manipulations.

Tip of the Day: There’s a lot happening in today’s world. Just look.

Ron’s Tuesday’s : Tip Using Video

Welcome to Ron’s Tuesday’s Tip. Every Tuesday I will share a tip with you. This week I am looking at Using Video.

I am new at using videos to promote the business. While I’ve developed videos over the past several years, I have little experience using them. So this is not a How To. I’m still learning.

Today I am discussing with you what I am thinking and doing with videos in regard to my writing career and TR Writing Services.

Writing Career

Over the years I’ve looked at YouTube and FaceBook video ads. These are powerful tools and I’m still looking at them. Also I am now taking a closer look at them and one other venue.

This other venue is our website at TR-writingservices.com. Under our Services tab I have just today (March 10, 2020) put out a series of videos entitled It’s Your Business. You’ll find more information below.

My wife and I have discussed me interviewing her about her debut novel Haney Place Secrets. I’m also considering doing other videos about my books. It is all tentative, but I’m a little excited.

TR Writing Services

It’s Your Business is now available on FaceBook and our website TR-WritingServices.com. Located in Videos on Facebook and  under Services on the website. I’ve also uploaded to YouTube, but that needs work.

What’s Next?

I already mentioned our plans. I will be moving slowly to avoid major mistakes. Plus I plan to emphasize Local Marketing as much as is possible.

What are you doing?

Ron’s Tip of the Day When the Unexpected Happens

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at When the Unexpected Happens.

Today started somewhat typical. It began by getting cleaned and dressed, followed by breakfast and devotions. Then my wife wanted to go shopping.

That was the first bump, but when you’ve been married a while (39 years in September) you expect the unexpected. So I adjusted on the fly and we went shopping.

After returning home, I gathered my computer and business papers and headed for the library where I usually spend 2 – 4 hours daily (M – F). We don’t have cable (chose to go without), so I use the Library’s Wi-Fi, but today the Wi-Fi is down.

Bummer!

So, I did what any author businessman would do, I gathered my computer and business papers and went to McDonald’s. That is where I am as I write this blog.

Tip of the Day

Don’t let the unexpected upset your day. If you look hard enough you can find a solution. This was a minor bump in the road, sometimes you get major bumps. But be proactive and keep moving on.
