GOOD MORNING…

It’s a great new day! I got up, grabbed some coffe and got right to work practicing note writing and edited a few reports.

Editing will be done next week…so reports concerning that will be out sometime then.

This should make the professional troll editors happy. After all, in this time of crisis…we all have to just sit back, complain and do things inside the literary art box rules made by the ones who control who gets to do what. You know, the rules made by the people who control the foundations who fund who gets to do what. These are the same ones who push all the propaganda, set the standards, and critique the lowly unknown starving artists, authors, musicians, and inventors while they are alive, and then after they die, profit off of their work. History is full of such a myriad of stories. So sad they say. So very sad. That’s what they say.

This cartoon is my own creation I drew and put together for my book…where I point out the wonderful world of literacy owned and controlled by the 1 percent club, without mentioning the one percent club. Smile.

In it I mention how the rules that need to be memorized not only stifle creativity and going with the flow needed in creative writing or creative anything. It teaches to memorize and never question, nor even know how to question for it is not allowed. Rules are rules. Obey, memorize and get an A. Question, analyze come up with another solution and fail the class. That way the selected few can more easily be pushed to the top. Vangelis is one of my favorite stories who could not read composition music but composed the most award winning scores. Who hasn’t heard of Chariots of Fire? Who doesn’t love the Beatles…too bad that none of them could read or write music when they started out. Somehow they slipped past the literary arts box keepers.

Creativity starts out by allowing yourself to be free of everything you were taught, everything you heard someone say about you, and every limitation anyone ever placed on you by saying you couldn’t do this or that. Most of all it is getting rid of everything you told yourself that you could not do, be or achieve. Once you do that, you will be ready to begin to build your new world. Ask God to help you erase all the old and show you all the knew things you are to feel, think, and do. Then begin. You will find impossible things are possible and you will begin to see these things. You will call them miracles. You will attract other people who also do impossible things that they too call miracles.

There is something called NATURAL TALENT, many hear the music, they see the notes, they don’t write them they play them. I wonder if King David had music lessons as a young lad when he learned to play the harp? Did they have sheet music back then? What the Literary Arts Gate Keepers do is analyse other peoples work and memorize it so others can reproduce it. Read that last line again! Very few have been taught to create…they’re taught to duplicate! God has given each unique gifts and the devil loves to keep all of you from discovering them and using them! In all professions, in all things…everyone has gifts!

It begins by letting loose and making free expression. It may look odd at first…but just tell the nosy critic you aren’t finished yet and God has just begun a work in you.
Then, after a little while…when the critics return to yap at you some more, they will look in awe. “How in the world”, they will say, “did you do this…it was impossible?” Then you smile and tell them, “It was only impossible as long as I listened to you.” The hardest part is breaking free. Once you do, grab hold of God’s hand and start running! Never look back – keep your eyes on him!

Imagine mentoring other people how to clean their slate and start new with God? Now that is a game changer. Imagine when the bottom of the pyramid reaches a critical mass of doing the impossible things together? The entire world will change and be full of people who love doing the impossible things called miracles with God at the top!

It begins with you. Today. Right now. Free yourself from the limits that have been placed on your mind. Teach your children how to think outside of the box. Teach them now and teach them quickly.

Imagine this new world for the Lord that is coming and think of what you are to do to usher it in!

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!

    Diane, love your work and would like to correspond with you about your thoughts on end time events. As I look at Revelation I tend to believe America is the Mystery Babylon of chapter 18. This is why I think America is not finished fulfilling its destiny. Where I tend to waffle is how America would fulfill that prophecy and how we as Christians escape Babylon’s ultimate fate. If Christians disappear in the rapture at the same moment Babylon is destroyed that would be an interesting discussion. I would love to know your thoughts on that. I tend to believe also that chapters 16, 17, and 18 are not in chronological order and should fit in somewhere earlier maybe around the 10 or 11th chapter. I hope to see your thoughts.

      Babylon isn’t one country, it’s global.
      Scripture shows that there will be a global alliance of ten kingdoms, ie. the ten toes of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, and also Revelation. You should also know that the creation of the EU was the first of those ten kingdoms, and that the NWO globalists have plans to create another nine. Go search for “Maps NWO ten regions world”, then click on images.

  2. Rules are only useful if they are followed by everyone working together to achieve the same objective. When people stop following the rules then either chaos occurs or something new that has never existed is created. Following the rules and stayed in the box or staying in the lines stifles creativity and progress. We must leave the space we are comfortable with or the place we have been told we belong or there will never be freedom of any kind. It’s time to break the rules that have been put upon us to control our lives. It’s time to live by your own rules and stop being a slave to the establishment.

    I really like the way and what you wrote, Dianne … I also learned to learn and do things “out of the box” .. I am a simple person, not an artist, (although I have been told by several people)but things that are necessary or useful for everyday life ..
    I learned to sew clothes from a German bourda (I’m Hungarian and with a dictionary in my hand), studying the extended tailoring pattern for days, until I realized its essence … so I “learned” the leather work, , Bibles with leather covers, and make many other little things, .. the repair work in the house and then “recycling”, so I learned to garden too … etc. By these the Lord showed the essence of the Word: “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.” Let’s want something, anything, take one step and the Lord will take two steps …
    There was a way that one thing didn’t work out, many times, and I couldn’t figure out the method .. so I threw a lot of expensive skin in the trash. I got frustrated, went to bed and wept praying … I fell asleep and dreamed .. one hand showed why what I was doing was not good and showed me the sequence of how to … I woke up right away and did the thing as instructed and I succeeded! We always do everything together and he taught me things I never could have known and opened up new possibilities through them, I was able to learn new things and it continues today. The “professionals” just hum and rotate my “creations,” and I giggle. I am happy because I see the guidance and teachings of the Lord, it is good to live with Him hand in hand.

    American Jazz and Blues masters played outside the box, just one more aspect of American greatness. Stuart Copeland of the police said it best. There are two types of musicians, those that play with their ears, and those that play with their eyes. They are both great in their own way, but those who play only with their eyes, can not rock.

    Once I finished technical school, came the Quebec separatist movement. I had done about every job a kid could do to earn money, Now, it was… ask not what your country can do for you. It was years later I discovered Trudeau was a multigenerational satanist, and his son too. He’s qualified to be a part time supply teacher for drama classes. Next thing you know he’s the PM of Canada. GO FIGURE !
    So after some time in the steel factory, I wore a uniform, putting it on in 1973. I had lived through martial law. How bright eyed, trusting and ignorant a youth I was. I spent ten years, trained for combat, and by 1981 had my intro to the underground cities as a military intelligence operative, learning all about continuity of govt. ops. and things you don’t talk about at parties.
    Eventually the educational system had driven some of the creativity out of me, and the military drove the trusting nature out of me as well. Eventually I learned how to survive in the military, in the real world, and over time I became a callous hard drinkin hard fightin womanisin son-of-a … hey, c’mon now, my mom was a saint ! As for me, I had ended up not just seeing the inside of a jail cell a few times, but as an intel op, I also carried a side arm and took people on board civilian aircraft to prison.

    I had also played the drums for twelve years as a youth, before trading them in for a uniform. Was on TV, stage etc… of course never got famous but was known locally. I was suppose to sing for Queen Elizabeth as our school choir was chosen to sing for her at the Ottawa national arts center, and they picked me to do a solo. Well her schedule changed and that meeting never happened.
    Many years later I stopped by to visit my family living in a different city than me as I was a soldier. My mother told me I was on the six o’clock news. I said what? I haven’t been on TV for years. She said… the camera stopped and did a closeup of you as the queen walked by on parliament hill for an inspection. I never mentioned her son had been out the night before behaving badly as soldiers often do. A couple of years later as my battalion was celebrating the 100 year anniversary, my boss the Duke of Edinburgh visited and I was unfortunately in a set of circumstances that resulted in a fractured tibia, fibula and dislocated ankle. I had an audience of 5,000 people watch me get busted up. The next couple of days I celebrated my birthday in the hospital.
    The point here, is that any time I was near or set to be near royalty, things just didn’t go well at all for me. Again, it took years to discover why, and just who I am in the spirit. See… darkness ” those that are the children of the darkness, can’t stand to be in the company of the children of the light, since it reminds them of their end… being generationally possessed as they all are. Even when the king of Norway stopped by at a field HQ, I ended up in trouble for missing a report that turned out to be important while I was working as an intel op. All I found out about him is.. he liked his coffee black.

    So then as a civilian it was brought to my attention by my sister, that we have a couple of cousins that each made their mark on our history. One was our cousin Harlon Block. He’s the one at the base of the flag, on the mountain of Iwo Gima. He was later killed by a mortar, and is buried at the Texas monument of that flag raising. https://youtu.be/d6nTnU0He0k
    Our other cousin became known by anyone that ever picked up a musical instrument, accept me of course. He was the one guy that combined a couple of music styles, which became known as rock a billy, known today as Rock-N-Roll. He and Elvis had to split up, since they kept asking for him instead of Elvis. He did become close to the others around him, especially the man in black. Well his name is Carl Perkins. The godfather of Rock. The Beatles would drive across town just to get one of his records, and later became friends. https://youtu.be/5ZmzvXGvjGY

    I guess we all have something to contribute, and some things just run in the family. Though I have been in the steel factory, in the military and been a musician, been in mid management in finance and the energy industry; my time to blossom has yet to arrive. Turns out G-d has a plan, and was called by Elijah as a few hundred of us gathered and were told we are the leadership, the first fruits of the remnant. The first to hear that call in the spirit and find ourselves sitting in front of Elijah. Being as skeptical as I had been trained to be, G-d had to humble me, get me saved, and then have Elijah call me. More than that… he PROVED by scripture, and by several circumstances, that no person or spirit can now steal it from me, that I am now an elder of the remnant in the army of the most high.
    So now dear readers… I have a king I can be drawn too, instead of later discovering he’s my enemy.
    The KING OF KINGS. I can sing to him, and play for him, and I can fight and do battle to take back the land that has always been ours, and the last exodus is yet to come. ISRAEL, IS FOREVER !

    In terms of our spiritual walk, Diane’s box has to be the church, or the church hierarchy. And as long we remain “content” at being sheltered in our churches, we will never function outside that “spiritual” box.
    And maybe “content” is the operative word, as most Christians seem to be little more than “contents” of some pastor’s decorated box!

    Jesus illustrated that when he constantly condemned the Pharisees and other synagogue leaders.

    I first heard God speak to me around 60 years ago, before I became a Christian, just standing in the street. It was another 10 years before I heard the gospel, and was persuaded to “become a Christian”. To climb inside their church box and got stuck for far too long.

    Although we had very good bible teaching, it seemed academic and mostly to do with church life, when I wanted to know how to walk the walk in real life. Although I still attended church, I learned to take everything direct to the Lord himself, and then walk it out in my industrial working life. Eventually we left church completely, and that’s when the real learning started.

    The Lord took us on a lengthy deprogramming course, as he undid years of nonsense and falsehood from being one of the contents of that box. Without the filters from the box, we learned to hear God far more clearly, and to explore the faith walk more outrageously.
    Ultimately, God is a very good teacher.

    One interesting thing we have always seen, it’s far easier to teach a non Christian to hear God speak that it is a Christian. The latter end up far too dependent on their box pastors to listen for themselves.

    Dear Dianne,
    Your post arrived in my Inbox at 4:13AM. Intentionally? The Lord intended it for my heart as that only added weight to the Philippians 4:13 embedded theme.
    Thank you for being God’s Girl!! May each of us take your message to heart. By God’s Grace, I am.
    I’d already read your post about Lin Wood’s update on the Supreme Court’s decision in grateful awe that we have 5 days of grace to pray into what will happen on the 25th, the first day of Purim!!
    The Lord certainly has His current day Esther and Mordecai in place, ready to present their cases before a Much Higher Court than our Supreme Court. Actually it is our 9 justices who are the ones on trial as Lin Wood acknowledges.
    The Jews and all others received the edict King Xerxes endorsed through Mordecai. They knew the days appointed. Now we do too. It’s time to praise and pray that Heaven will OverRule Again!!
    O Lord, by Your Workmanship, root out and replace the rank corruption in our land as only You can with the Foundations Re-Established on Truth, Righteousness, Law and Justice under God for Your Glory Alone. Enable the rightful, duly elected, God-appointed President of the United States of America to be sworn in to the Praise of The One who put the Foundations in place and has not yet finished His Plan for this nation to point people to Him for time and Eternity!! May it be So entirely for Jesus’ sake!! Amen.

    This is a perfect blog today as I always have these discussions with my grandchildren on using their God given gifts. It is so obvious to see the gifts He gave each one, but knowing during their childhood others will be pushing them to do something that isn’t their gift. Often times in public school settings educators want to develop the ‘whole’ child and don’t help to push that one obvious gift a child has been given – parents have to be very watchful that doesn’t occur to their child. God does give each of us special gift(s) and it’s generally pretty obvious what it/they are – use it to its fullest and see where it takes you. Thank you for this reminder today!

      Charlie, Trumps part continues. There are two presidents, just as all citizens have two identities. One is the all capitals person of (Maritime law/ international commerce law/ Admiralty law/ law of the seas.)
      This was controlling earth under the globalists. Now bankrupt, Biden and Harris, are without much power of importance to eliminate that. This blog has already explained that. The other identity is the natural person under common law. Trump continues as the rightful president under common law.
      Just as in scripture when king Saul remained on the throne, it was already taken from him by G-d and given to king David. The anointing of G-d to be king / president is required to withstand the weight of office. Neither this Jackel J Biden or Harris have that, and will fail. Neither have the launch codes. The military under the chairman of the joint chiefs is in control now. Neither Trump or Biden controls that.
      This blog explains these things.
      Trump is waiting for the removal of dirty bombs,& mini nuke plants from sleeper cells, Also for the completion of the removal of power from the ageing CCP party. There are also a few other vital consolidations needed, but I have yet to see these take hold. Removal of the vaccines and complete overtaking of the US space command Q claims to control. Also the geoengineering destroying the planet, and continued installation of the 5-G networks. These issues along with crypto currencies like Bitcoin are still in place, and directly related to the mark of the beast system.

      Here is the chain of completion for the mark. Quantum supercomputer cray five array, primary node of systems beneath Colorado Springs Co. Quantum communication parse syntax grammar math code interface, Promise software and social media tie-in’s. All those who end up taking the vaccinations to complete the DNA transformation of the body into the completed synthetic being, not a creation of G-d.
      Completion of the LEO satellite systems connected to all other monitoring methodologies of the global electronic cage. EG: GWEN cell systems, Woodpecker grid, Zigby network, smart dust motes.
      Connected synthetic people tied into these systems for complete control in this matrix using Biometric Encryption And Satellite Tracking BEAST to do everything and anything, living in 12 huge mega cities told what they can and can not do with no rights to anything including reproduction.

      All these things are the goals of this synagogue of satan, so they can be the demonic dominant force to er emerge from their underground cities after the pole shift to once again control the next age. THIS IS GOING TO FAIL. How do we know? The only thing that matters is that each individual be free to make their decision for the G-d of Israel to be saved, then to be educated on his TORAH LAWS to know how to live within his will, ( the commandments) So once Yeshua arrives, he finds you maintaining that intimacy, and the death angel will pass over you and not give you the mark. This will also require that you will not be keeping the coming Sunday law. Sabbath, is Fri sundown to Sat sundown. No buying or selling, No labour at all. A person is wrapped up with G-d studying his word, developing their anointing by fasting and praying in tongues. These are all commands. Not an elective.

      ALL MANKIND WILL BE JUDGED BY SCRIPTURE.WHAT YOU GOT AROUND TO IMPLEMENTING, AND GIVEN STRIPES FOR THOSE THINGS WE MISSED. You need the leadership of the five fold ministry with guidance of a prophet. The leadership / first fruits of the remnant will be doing this, as we have already been instructed by Elijah. Malachi 4:4,5,6 and Zecharian 8:23 have already taken place. Some are already in hiding.
      The cry is to come out of the whore church and keep the covenant. The last exodus is still to come.

        I agree but we cannot wait for nations to wake up about the Globalists’ depopulation agenda. Covid is secondary, just a tool for the NWO Satanic Cabal to advance their Technocratic world domination. What we need is to save the USA and reclaim Trump’s win – everything else will follow. There is a reason why the world (more than Americans) await for the US election’s results every 4 years: where the US goes, the world goes. The utmost vile and evil Henry Kissinger once said that the US is crucial for the Globalists to reach the NWO. I am not losing hope but the more time passes, the more the City of London and their cronies in the US have their way. We can seem them angry but let’s only look at all the changes happening (reverting everything Trump did). God bless.

  10. Thanks, Dianne for the inspiring post! My creative journey began when I was very young. I was blessed with a vivid imagination, an artistic hand, and a love for music.

    In college, I was introduced to screenwriting and wrote several scripts that did well in script competitions. With regards to thinking outside of the box: I’m on the fence with that one. There are rules one must learn before they can be broken. With writing, the classic three act story structure is the standard and for a very good reason. It is the story of our lives. Beginning, middle, and end. Born, live, die. Anything that defies the natural order of things appears chaotic. People gravitate toward a natural satisfying order of things. If an automobile designer thinks outside of the box and starts making cars into washing machines… It’s artistic, but I wouldn’t want to drive one.

    Thinking outside the box is wonderful for exploring options, but it is always the tried and true that people are the most comfortable with. I have explored writing stories with open endings and my readers always felt that they had to “help” me finish the story. That is the way life is.

    It’s fine to experiment, ask “what if?” and to wander outside of the confines of a box, but don’t forget, people instinctively want logic and clarity. And they want a happy ending!

    Smile. Jesus loves you!

    1. I agree. My book points that out. All stories have a beginning, a middle and an ending. With all the ARCS and arc structures…it is very confusing for people to decide what is what…there are any number of arcs and rules for the arcs. When book writing simplified brings them back to the main focus – the beginning, the middle and the ending. But, the article was not on what was in the book….it was on one of the points in the book…which was not to let those who own publishing companies stop you from writing and self publishing to get your book out. For all the big publishing companys are owned by the 1 percent great merchants who own everything. Therefore, it is hard for many with talent to ever publish. Now this is not a new thing…it has always been. But, I don’t knock these publishers, I merely point out the history of publishing and how that system works and encourage people to write their thoughts on paper and dare to publish it for their own satisfaction. Censorship was the topic to go around. At the time of writing it, I had no idea the censorship we are now in the middle of would take place, nor the timing of it would be so important. Which new congressman was it that had their book pulled from the publishing company? He was devastated over it and people were angered. I shouted self publish you will get more sales now than you would have from them! So you see….the book shows people how to not only write…but to by pass the censoring big 5 publishing house, and it shows people how not to get ripped off by those inbetween … it is a tool guide that I hoped to motivate others to write their stories be it biography, opinions, or tales….and just do it. Don’t say you can’t because you are not important enough, rich enough, successful enough, famous, or a politician….do it for you. I do include the rules you can’t ignore.

    …Specifications:
    Donald John Trump, was born June 14, 1946.

    He will be 70 years old on election day.

    From the Internet, he is 6’2″ or 6’3′ and weighs between 195 and 200 lbs.

    He has a full head of blond/brown hair (which is long and elaborately combed) and blue eyes.

    The Internet tells us he wears a size 12 shoe.

    Donald Trump was born the fourth of five children who were born over eleven years.

    The oldest, Mary Ann, was born in 1937 and is currently a Federal Judge.

    His older brother, Fred Jr, died in early adulthood as a result of complications from alcoholism.

    He has another older sister, Elizabeth and a younger brother, Robert.

    Donald Trump has been married three times.

    Trump’s first wife, Ivana, was an immigrant from Czechoslovakia and a divorcee who has been married 4 times in her life. She is a life long avid skier and worked in design at the Trump Organization.

    Marla Maples, Trump’s second wife is an actress and model

    Trump’s third wife, Melania is an immigrant from Slovenia (born in Yugoslavia) and has been a super model.

    Two of Trump’s children, Donald Jr and Ivanka, have gone to Penn. Son Eric, went to Georgetown.

    Donald Trump tells us that he is Presbyterian.

    Donald Trump does not appear to have had any interest in occults, mysticism or exotic mythologies.

    Donald Trump’s oldest daughter, Ivanka, and her three children are Jewish.

    Trump’s oldest daughter, Ivanka, is married to Jared Kushner who is, among other things, a newspaper publisher. The Kushner family is very successful in New York City area real estate.

    Donald’s grandmother, mother, first wife, and third wife are all immigrants.

    Donald Trump was born and raised in Queens NY

    Though his family was very wealthy, Trump’s boyhood home in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens was not a grand mansion. The Trump home was a larger version of the homes Fred Trump was building for his tenants.* There are no indications that the Trump family lived among the wealthy elites on vacations or country clubs.

    Queens is the largest of New York’s five boroughs and the most ethnically diverse.

    Trump attended a local private day school, the Kew Forrest School, in Queens until about 8th grade.

    His secondary schooling was at New York Military Academy which is about 60 miles north of NYC in Cornwall on the Hudson. He was the class of 1964.

    Trump was never a “Preppie”.

    Trump never embraced any aspect of the “Hippie” movement of the time.

    Trump was a very good high school athlete – football, soccer, and especially baseball. He had potential to become a professional baseball player.

    Even in high school – Trump liked women and women liked him.

    Trump was generally popular in high school.

    Trump’s boarding school room mate liked him.

    He attended Fordham University in NYC for two years and transferred to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

    At that time, the Wharton School offered a rare program for Real Estate Business.

    Though he was of age, Donald Trump did not serve in Vietnam.

    He was not drafted due to bone spurs in his heels (4F) and also student deferments.

    Ultimately, in the draft lottery, he drew a high number.

    By all we know, Donald Trump does not smoke, drink or use recreational drugs. He’ll be the first President in more than 25 years who hasn’t smoked weed.

    BTW: Trump’s children don’t smoke or drink.

    Trump makes it well known that he enjoys sexual interaction with women.

    I am unaware that Donald Trump is a recreational gambler.

    His doctor publicly announced Donald to be in excellent health.

    I think that to really know Donald Trump, you must know his family background.

    The Trump family story is a very American story.* Trump family history – concise version.

    Donald Trump’s grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Alsace (Kallstadt, Germany) which throughout history has been alternately French and German.

    The Trumps are German, originally speaking the same German dialect as the Amish of Lancaster County, PA.

    His maternal grandparents lived in Scotland.

    Freiderich (Drumph) Trump made a small but respectable fortune in the late 19th Century in the mining boom towns of the American Northwest.

    He returned to Germany to marry his childhood neighbor, Elizabeth Christ.

    The newly married Trumps resettled in the Borough of Queens, N.Y.

    Freidrich was establishing a Real Estate business in Queens when he died suddenly at age 49 (1918).

    In 1920, at the age of 15, Fred Trump (Freiderich’s son and Donald’s father), started a business partnership with his widowed mother called Elizabeth Trump & Son.

    This business was built upon the real estate holdings that his father,Frederich, had amassed (worth about $500,000.00 in today’s dollars). This is the original “seed money” of the current Trump Organization.

    Elizabeth & Fred remained close business partners her entire life (she died in 1966).

    In 1936 Fred Trump (age 31) married Mary Ann MacLeod (age 24) of Stoneaway Scotland.

    During the depression, Fred Trump built and successfully operated a supermarket (a new concept at the time) which was sold to King Kullen Co. and operates this day.

    Fred Trump made a lot of money building housing for the military during WWII.

    Fred Trump was investigated by the Justice Department for making “excessive profits” from government contracts.

    All (or nearly all) of the building of Elizabeth Trump & Son’s non government building was residential property in Queens.

    Fred Trump died in 1999 (age 94) – beloved and worth between $250 million and $300 million. His wife died a year later.

    …The Donald’s” career:
    Donald Trump is the greatest career achiever of the “baby boomer” generation.

    Donald Trump has reached the zenith in his careers as book author, TV entertainer, sports entertainer, Real Estate developer, and currently politician.* Donald Trump has authored more than 18 books. At least one of them, The Art of the Deal was a top seller.

    Donald says that the Holy Bible is his favorite book. The Art of the Deal is his 2nd favorite book. And The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale is his third favorite book.

    He likes golf. Donald Trump has developed more than 11 golf courses which bear his name.

    Donald performed in Wrestlemania 23 which set attendance records and revenue records up til that time.

    In his first candidacy for public office, Donald Trump received the most popular votes for the President of the United States out of a field of experienced and successful politicians. And in most cases, he achieved this with less money than any of his opponents.

    Keeping in mind that 90% of start up businesses fail, Trump’s record of enterprise is nothing short of amazing.

    Donald Trump has enjoyed success in at least 11 very different enterprises: Professional football, Ice Skating rinks, Fragrance, Ice, Steaks, Wines, Model management, Airline, blenders, Men’s wear, Bicycle races, world class beauty contests, and many others. In some of these, such as model management, his firm has risen to the top of that particular industry.

    There are 31 buildings that bear his name.

    The largest private real estate development in New York is Trump Riverside. Drive down the Henry Hudson Blvd. – you can’t miss them.

    There are at least 12 Trump Towers.* There are at least 6 Trump Plazas.

    There are at least 11 Trump Golf Course developments, and much, much, more in real estate.

    Trump Entertainment, casinos and resorts was recently sold to Carl Ichan.

    Donald Trump’s personal managing of the Wollman Ice Skating Rink project in the early 1980’s is the quintessential case study for MBA students in Wharton, Harvard, and other business schools. His performance there was phenomenal.

    In the casino business in Atlantic City, Trump had to do business with known mobsters – and he stayed “clean” and alive.

    …The Political Trump:
    – About 1967 – 1987 – Democrat (he was a supporter of Ronald Reagan)
    – 1987 – 1999 – Republican
    – 1999 – 2001 – Reform Party (he supported Ross Perot)
    – 2001 – 2009 – Democrat
    – 2009 – 2011 – Republican
    – 2011 – 2012 – Independent
    – 2012 – Present – Republican

    Donald Trump was openly supportive of Mitt Romney’s candidacy.

    Donald Trump does not seem to hold political party organizations in high regard.

    For the most part, his political involvement has been for practical reasons.

    Donald Trump does not appear to be held to political ideology.

    …Some of my take aways:
    Trump has an extraordinarily energetic central nervous system much like Teddy Roosevelt but more targeted to industry and enterprise.

    Trump’s presidency will be very energetic, transparent, and communicative.

    Trump will be a very hard working President.

    His interaction with his older brother (who everybody loved) tells me that he thinks that everybody is like him – or wants to be – or should be.

    His relationship with his older brother was a hard lesson in tolerance for him.

    Trump is the Babe Ruth of career achievements.* He is dumb like a fox. When you think he just said something stupid – he didn’t. It’s just that you
    were not his target audience.

    Trump knows the people – the folk.

    His son, Donald Jr. is right. Trump is a “Blue Collar Billionaire”.

    More than anything, his TV show, The Apprentice, was his passion.He wants all Americans to have confidence (like he does) to venture.

    Donald Trump is attracted to and marries smart, high achieving women.

    The highest levels of a Trump Administration is certain to have many women – and they will be bright and assertive.

    Donald Trump’s children are very important to him. And it shows.

    PS. Yes, we know nothing of our current president with 2 terms in office nor does anyone remember him growing up.
