Each day, I receive thousands of messages and emails. Below are three of them from the past 24 hours, and the response I’ve given to each. NOTE: I do not include the last name of the sender unless they explicitly request that I do so.
PLEASE SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO THE SUBMIT NEWS PAGE.
1) From Joan:
DML, I love listening to you and Jey Sekulow. For the first time ever the two of you are on complete opposite ends of an issue. During your Walk & Talk last night you stated how much you do not like the new healthcare bill put forward by Paul Ryan and supported by President Trump. Everything you said makes perfect sense, but Mr. Sekulow made great points on his Facebook Live show earlier in the day in his support of the bill. I am so confused as to who I should believe. HELP! — Joan
DML: Joan, it’s not a matter of who to believe, it’s a matter of who’s opinion you agree with more. Neither of us is lying to you. We are both sharing our professional opinions.
Sekulow is very passionate about the defunding of Planned Parenthood. That said, in his opinion, the Paul Ryan bill is the best chance we have of shutting down the funding of Planned Parenthood.
Like Sekulow, I too am pro-life, but unlike Sekulow, I am not going to support the healthcare bill simply because of $500M being taken from Planned Parenthood.
Make no mistake, if Planned Parenthood loses its federal funding, it will replace a lot of it with private donations. Furthermore, women who are dead-set on having an abortion will find a way to get one with or without Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood aside, everything about the new bill bothers me. It is based on 3 phases, and the first phase is a reconciliation bill. It can pass with less than 60 votes, but it is based on the fundamentals of Obamacare. Plus, it needs phase 2 and 3, or else it’s nothing more than Obamacare 2.0.
Phase 2 and 3, in my opinion, will never arrive. I am dead against this bill. I am dead against Paul Ryan. If President Trump supports this bill, I believe it haunts him in 2020.
2) From Dennis:
I read and hear people say everyday that President Trump is cutting this and he is cutting that program. My response to those people is “20 Trillion”. We are 20 Trillion in debt, before this is all over he is going to have to cut some funding to a lot of programs that I like, but I know this. Until we get our budget down to sustainable numbers again, we are going to have to pull up our big girl and boy pants and work through it. What’s the old saying, “Hard work don’t come easy”. Well I guess it is time to start the hard work, and it isn’t going to be easy. Wondered what your thoughts are. God Bless America, President Trump, and DML Daily (for reporting the facts).
p.s. I don’t trust any story till I read or hear it from you guys.
DML: Great name, Dennis… As to your question and comment, it is very easy for Democrats to give, give, give and give what is not theirs to give away. Entitlements are killing this country. Safety nets were not designed to be hammocks, and yet the amount of dependency in the U.S. is ridiculous. Thus, it is never easy to take away things from people who have grown dependent, and this is one reason why the GOP is deemed the “mean” party. Democrats give, Republicans take away, or so it is sold by the media.
There need to be cuts, there needs to be discipline, otherwise, the country will fail. It’s not a matter of being mean, it’s a matter of dollars and cents. What Trump wants to give is independence and responsibility to those who have long forgotten the meaning of the two words.
Just as a side note, I want to state clearly that I do not and will not agree to any cuts to social security, or any cuts that will hurt our veterans or senior citizens.
3) From Jim:
Hi Dennis. I am a big fan of yours. I am not sure you will get this but I really want to tell you what you have done to me in my life.
I am so inspired by what you do. I watch you all the time. I love how you put out the truth and you do not sugar coat it.
I know you are busy with the new studio and I am hoping one day to meet you in person one on one. It is a wish of mine. When I seen your video — with you and your wife Mary — when you were going to run for president, and the speech had me in tears… Feeling what you feel, and seeing what you seen on the line, really made me think of all these people like our Vets being homeless and so much more.
Again, I have a vision and I hope one day I can meet you. I have so much to say. So, I hope you get this. I wish you and your family the best and for God to guide you and your family to the stars. Sincerely, Jim H
DML: Thanks for the kind words, Jim. And thanks for the support and prayers.
