Israel-United Arab Emirates Deal proves that President Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy is Working

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “President Donald Trump has so far been a remarkably successful foreign-policy president. His success lies in his ability to identify America’s national interest clearly and pursue it without regard to outdated ideological investments,” Daniel McCarthy writes in The American Conservative.
 
From China to Iran to the new Middle East deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, “Donald Trump can succeed where the others fail because he is transactional, not ideological, and he looks out for the American interest—which is peace through stability—rather than trying to bring about peace through perfection.”

Letter to the Editor

Written by John Kaler MSG, USA Retired

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Literally thousands of concerned Montgomery county citizens are concerned about the Multi-Purpose Event Center not meeting operating costs and causing a tax increase to meet shortfalls.

To hold down utility costs the county should consider some combination of solar water heating, solar electrical panels, wind turbine and a green roof. Though they would add to to the initial cost the result could be money saved for the taxpayers!

AAAOrlando, FL – AAA’s latest survey reveals that despite many Americans having interest in electric vehicles, when asked if most vehicles will be electric by 2029, only 4 in 10 said yes.

Support Local Christmas Tree Farms this Season

 

Think Local, Buy Local, Live Local! (Ad One Advertising)Clarksville, TN – This Christmas season do the planet a favor and select a natural Christmas tree from a local tree farm. Christmas tree farms grow a completely renewable and recyclable resource which contains no petroleum products and leaves a very small carbon footprint.

According to Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Pick Tennessee Products, natural Christmas trees can be found close to home, just waiting to be transported from the farm to your living room.

While they’re growing, natural Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases and emit fresh oxygen. Christmas trees are often grown on soil that doesn’t support other crops, and their root systems serve to stabilize soil, protect area water quality and provide refuge for wildlife.
