Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with friends and family, focusing on everything we are thankful for. When my family got into town last night, my brother looked over to me and said, "this is the first Thanksgiving in eight years that I am actually thankful for our President."
And that got me thinking. Even with all of the Congressional inaction and RINO sabotage, there is still so much for Conservatives to be thankful for this year.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have never been so powerless.
A truly conservative judge, Neil Gorsuch, was added to the Supreme Court and rumors continue to swirl that Pres. Trump will get to nominate another Supreme Court Justice in the next months.
Ridiculous Obama executive orders have been overturned and where Obama exceeded his Constitutional authority, such as the Iran Nuclear Agreement, Trump has ordered Congress to rectify it.
The stock market has been hitting record highs practically every week.
Leftists are being kicked out of bloated government agencies and departments and their Obama-era policies are being reversed.
Even before the border wall is built, Trump's threats alone have reduced illegal immigration by as much as 78% in some months this year.
In October, unemployment claims dropped to the lowest the country has seen in 44 years.
And for the first time in a long time, we have a President willing to tell it like it is and defend the United States of America and everything it stands for.
The list literally goes on and on.
There is still so much we need to accomplish and we are going to need to continue fighting back against the establishment forces trying to drag us back into the Obama years.
But for now, enjoy your day with family and friends and celebrate everything we have accomplished together over the past year. Give thanks for all of the blessings we have received, allowing us to live in the greatest country on earth. And yes, take an extra helping of turkey and fixings.
Then, tomorrow, we get back to work!
A happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,
Joe Otto and the Conservative Daily Team
