From Congressman John Lewis, American Hero

Source: Mr Lewis office release

December 29, 2019


ATLANTA – U.S. Rep. John Lewis today released the following statement:

“I have been in some kind of fight - for freedom, equality, basic human rights - for nearly my entire life. I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now.

This month in a routine medical visit, and subsequent tests, doctors discovered Stage IV pancreatic cancer. This diagnosis has been reconfirmed.

While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis, doctors have told me that recent medical advances have made this type of cancer treatable in many cases; that treatment options are no longer as debilitating as they once were; that I have a fighting chance.

So I have decided to do what I know to do; what I have always done: I am going to fight it, and keep fighting for the Beloved Community. We still have bridges to cross.

To my constituents: Being your representative in Congress is the honor of a lifetime. I will return to Washington in coming days to continue our work and begin my treatment plan, which will occur over the next several weeks. I may miss a few votes during this period, but with God’s grace I will be back on the front lines soon.

Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this journey.”

West Point code https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2019/11/17/west-point-alumni-pompeo

Should be reminded of the Honor Code. The person they are supporting in this mafia administration is violating the code and they are too.

Trump Installed 'Golf Simulator' at White House

Trump Installed ‘Golf Simulator’ at White House

February 13, 2019 at 11:41 am EST By Taegan Goddard

“President Trump has installed a room-sized ‘golf simulator’ game at the White House, which allows him to play virtual rounds at courses all over the world by hitting a ball into a large video screen,” the Washington Post reports.

“That system replaced an older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama… Trump’s system cost about $50,000, and was put in during the last few weeks in a room in his personal quarters.”


This could explain all of that "Executive Time"
