How does one correctly address the newly elected President of the United States? In the media, he’s being correctly referred to as President Donald Trump or President Trump. However, did you know that the President’s name is never used in his presence? And, on a related note, how does one refer to a former President? Is he referred to as Mr. Obama or former President Obama?

Knowing and using correct titles and forms of address is part of good business and social etiquette, including how we refer to U.S. Presidents and former presidents. Since I was recently asked about this topic, I went directly to an indispensable resource on my bookshelf, Honor & Respect; The Official Guide to Names, Titles, & Forms of Address. Authored by Robert Hickey, deputy director of The Protocol School of Washington, (which is where I received my business etiquette and protocol training and certification!), Hickey covers the correct written and oral forms of address for everyone from local officials to foreign heads of state.

So, to be in the know, especially with President’s Day coming up, I’m sharing Hickey’s information on how to refer to a President or former President of the United States. And, by the way, I highly recommend his book!

Mar-a-Lago Raid Bombshell Rocks the Nation - Look What the Biden Admin Ordered Hours Before

Most Americans appear to doubt the legitimacy of the trials against Donald Trump. Polling suggests they think Democrats are pushing these cases to undermine the 2024 E******n. Democrats likely want to derail Trump’s campaign with these endless hearings.

One of the trials pertains to documents Trump kept at his home. Although cooperating with the National Archives, Biden’s DOJ raided Trump’s home.

It has further accused him of illegally keeping documents, despite his authority to declassify them. Now, we are learning just how drastic this raid on Mar-a-Lago was. According to a newly released report, Biden was willing to let agents do the very worst to take down Trump.

From Fox News:
The Biden administration authorized the use of deadly force during the FBI’s raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida in August 2022 as part of its investigation into classified records, court documents revealed…

The order, according to a court filing, contained a “Policy Statement” regarding “Use of Deadly Force,” which stated, for example, “Law Enforcement officers of the Department of Justice may use deadly force when necessary.”…


A newly released document revealed Biden authorized the use of deadly force in the FBI’s raid of Trump’s home. Many believe the raid was wrong, unnecessary, and a shocking violation of a former president’s home. Trump had been working with the National Archives, even following FBI recommendations.

Without warning, the FBI sent 30 armed agents to storm his house while he was away. They did not let Trump’s lawyers watch what they were doing, as they ransacked Trump’s home (including his wife’s closest). Now, we know that the agents were allowed to k**l, should the need had arisen.

They were not storming the den of an infamous drug smuggler, mind you. The FBI was going to a president’s home to take paperwork. Yet it seems clear Biden wanted this event to be as damaging as possible to Trump. The raid was meant to make Trump look like a dangerous criminal, who required armed officers at the scene.

The use of deadly force would have been totally unnecessary. But the fact that Biden approved it is deeply troubling. It is one thing for Democrats to manufacture charges against Trump. It is another thing for them to suggest he is a danger to police officers doing their job.

This appears to be another example of Biden trying to fearmonger Americans into believing Trump is a tyrant. All the while, Biden looks to be the real one.

Key Takeaways:
Biden approved the use of deadly force in the Mar-a-Lago raid.
The FBI stormed Trump’s home to take paperwork from his administration.
Trump accused Biden of being a “serious threat to democracy.”

Trump employs private security thugs rather than simply relying on professional secret service agents. He uses them to rough up protesters at his cult revival h**e festivals. It was for the safety of agents that they were allowed to use deadly force if trumps slimy enforcers attacked them.

There was sufficient evidence of treason and espionage that a court signed off on a search warrant.

May 21, 2024 –PRINTED OFF 5/22/24
WASHINGTON — The Biden administration said Tuesday it is releasing 1 million barrels of gasoline from a Northeast reserve established after Superstorm Sandy in a bid to lower prices at the pump this summer.
The sale, from storage sites in New Jersey and Maine, will be allocated in increments of 100,000 barrels at a time. The approach will create a competitive bidding process that ensures gasoline can flow into local retailers ahead of the July 4 holiday and sold at competitive prices, the Energy Department said.
The move, which the department said is intended to help “lower costs for American families and consumers,” follows a mandate from Congress to sell off the 10-year-old Northeast reserve and then close it. The language was included in a spending deal Congress approved in March to avert a partial government shutdown.
The Energy Department said the sale of 1 million barrels, about 42 million gallons, was timed to provide relief for motorists as the summer driving season begins. Gasoline prices average about $3.60 per gallon nationwide, up 6 cents from a year ago, according to AAA. Tapping gasoline reserves is one of the few actions a president can take by himself to try to control inflation, an e******n year liability for the party in control of the White House.
“The Biden-Harris administration is laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families, especially as drivers hit the road for summer driving season,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement. “By strategically releasing this reserve in between Memorial Day and July 4th, we are ensuring sufficient supply flows to the tri-state and Northeast at a time hardworking Americans need it the most.”
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said release of gas from the Northeast reserve builds on actions by President Joe Biden “to lower gas and energy costs — including historic releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and the largest-ever investment in clean energy.”
Biden significantly drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in 2022 following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, dropping the stockpile to its lowest level since the 1980s. The e******n year move helped stabilize gasoline prices that had been rising in the wake of the war in Europe but drew complaints from Republicans that the Democratic president was playing politics with a reserve meant for national emergencies.
The Biden administration has since begun refilling the oil reserve, which had more than 367 million barrels of crude oil as of last week. The total is lower than levels before the Russia-Ukraine war but still the world’s largest emergency crude oil supply.nThe Northeast sale will require that the 42-million-gallon reserve is t***sferred or delivered no later than June 30, the Energy Department said.
Congressional Republicans have long criticized the Northeast reserve, which was established by former President Barack Obama, saying any such stockpile should have been created by Congress. A 2022 report by the Government Accountability Office said the gasoline reserve, which has never been tapped, would provide minimal relief during a severe shortage. The reserve costs about $19 million a year to maintain.
Patrick De Haan, an analyst for GasBuddy, said sale of the Northeast reserve would have little impact on gasoline prices nationally, although there “may be a slight downward pressure on prices” in the Northeast. The million-barrel reserve only amounts to about 2.7 hours of total U.S. gasoline consumption, he said. “As an analyst, this reserve never really made a whole lot of sense to have,’’ De Haan said in an Associated Press interview. The reserve is very small and must be frequently rotated, “because gasoline has a shelf life,’’ De Haan said. “That’s why there’s really no nation that has an emergency stockpile of gasoline’’ other than the U.S.
The Strategic Petroleum Reserve has vastly more quantities of oil needed in an emergency, he said.

from Governor Huckabee

We’ve all heard the absurd claim that if you think g****r-confused children need psychological counseling instead of chemicals and surgery that destroy their bodies when they don’t understand the irreversible ramifications, then you “h**e t***s kids” and “want them to die.” And by that, they mean they’ll commit suicide if they don’t get what they want – which to a reasonable person would be a surefire sign that they need psychological counseling.

Fortunately, many of the claims that these Frankenstein-like treatments are helpful are finally being debunked, as researchers discover they were based on scant evidence from slanted sources. Now, there’s a new study by University of Texas medical researchers that blows up the claim that radical “t***s” surgery prevents suicide.****r-t***sition-surgeries-drastically-increase-risk-of-suicide-study

The 20-year study found that patients who had “g****r-affirming surgery” (that’s another misnomer; it’s actually g****r-defying surgery) had a 12.12 times HIGHER risk of suicide attempts than patients who did not have surgery. Let me repeat: an over TWELVE TIMES HIGHER RISK of attempting suicide after the surgery. So I have to ask: Why do proponents of this quackery want t***s kids to die?

Despite these obvious five-alarm-fire results, the researchers still couldn’t bring themselves to state the obvious: We need to ban this quackery NOW. Instead, this was their conclusion:

“G****r-affirming surgery is significantly associated with elevated suicide attempt risks, underlining the necessity for comprehensive post-procedure psychiatric support.”

I think they missed the point. These findings underline the necessity for comprehensive psychiatric support INSTEAD of butchering children to advance a political or social agenda. There, fixed it for you.

Here is an idea. Let’s leave such decisions to licensed professional health care providers, patients and if minors their parents.

Bill O'Reilly May 22, 2024

Every day, I get mail scolding me for saying President Biden often doesn't know what he is saying. My opinion is that his mind cannot comprehend the words he speaks.

My critics say I'm "covering" for Biden; they believe he intentionally lies, it's not a mental issue. That's the debate.

So let me present an irrefutable fact that will prove, once again, O'Reilly's fact-based approach to news analysis should earn your trust, if not your admiration.

On Sunday, Mr. Biden gave a speech to the NAACP in Detroit where he said that, as Vice President, he helped Detroit get through the c***d p******c.

Now, the p******c began four years AFTER Joe departed the vice presidency. That's a pretty long stretch. And those words were not in the speech Biden was reading. He ... made ... the ... statement up. A rational person whose mind is functioning never would have said something that insane because no one could defend it.

And the White House didn't even try. It issued a statement saying that the most powerful man in the world, the guy who controls the nuclear codes, really meant to say that he helped Detroit with the recession, not C***d.

Oh. Thanks for the clarification. It may be a long way to Tipperary, but it's even longer from C***d to recession.

So, I rest my case. If you v**e for Biden, you are supporting a man who is so impaired he can barely function.

Dangerous? Off the chart.

The United States Cattlemen's Association has advocated for national labeling rules that would only apply the term "beef" to products derived from livestock raised by farmers & ranchers.

Since 2018, more than a dozen states have passed laws making it illegal to use the word meat to describe burgers & sausages made from plant-based ingredients or meat products grown in labs.

The National Cattlemen's senior director of government affairs,
Sigrid Johannes, says what their group wants to see:

"Language in the next Farm Bill that would require cultivated meat & plant-based foods (that resemble meat) to carry the label "imitation" in the same font, the same size, as the word beef."

"When people are looking at that label, they should know exactly what they are buying."
