Military Families Gasped When They Saw The Secret Surprise Melania Had For Each One Of Them

Published

on

First Lady Melania Trump shared a preview of the White House Christmas decorations and military families were very excited to see the secret surprise waiting for them. While Donald Trump is busy handling his duties of making America great, his wife was busy making the White House great. She provided the special touches needed to show the American support for the military. If there’s one thing the Trump family adores, it’s the American military, and the Trump’s sure know how to show it!

The White House had a preview to show journalists the “Time-Honored Traditions” display that came complete with the typical Christmas setup. Melania Trump designed this herself and her goal was to show respect for typical White House traditions, but she, of course, put her special touches on it and the military families probably had their jaws hit the floor when they saw how beautifully stunning the display was.

But then military families would see the one thing waiting for them. The ultimate show of respect for the American military of every branch. This is the beloved Gold Star Family Tree that is specifically dedicated to the men and women in the military. The tree came with a little electronic special surprise.

The Hill reports:

The White House emphasized the role Melania played in plotting out the decorations, crediting her with personally selecting “every detail of this year’s holiday season” at the executive mansion.

Melania tweeted a video showing her helping to craft the embellishments throughout the White House
As White House guests enter the East Wing, they see the Gold Star Family Tree, dedicated to military servicemen and women. As in years past, alongside the tree are tablets to send digital holiday messages to troops abroad.

That wasn’t the only special surprise gift that Melania had waiting for visitors. The next gift, a first of it’s kind, was for all visitors. They had the White House movie theater opened so visitors can take a peek at where Presidents and first families spend time watching movies. The Presidential family does get at least a little bit of normal family life, so if they’re in the mood, then they can watch a movie with some privacy. Special guests are able to take a peek and see what it’s like. Many people forget that when you’re the President and the first family, that your privacy goes out the window! Remember how nice it is to go to the bathroom with five minutes of privacy? Or maybe take a shower or watch a movie? Sometimes people take that for granted and forget how good they have it.

“Here, for the first time, visitors can view the space where first families gather to watch their favorite films,” a holiday booklet from the White House says of the viewing space, which is decked out in red velvet.

Later on the tour the military families and other guests can finally see the official Christmas tree of the White House. The glowing spectacle of holiday joy is located in the Blue Room. The tree is over 18 feet tall and definitely would not fit in my house. The mostly blue and gold decorations have seals of every state and territory of the United States.

Melania isn’t done there. The next precious moment is a subtle dedication to Nancy Reagan. Peppermint candles and holiday cookies fill the air with a luscious scent. There’s also two cranberry trees which are reported to be Nancy’s favorite decoration for the wintery holiday.

The final piece of the Christmas pie is something you’d eat like a pie, but this could be the one time you don’t want to eat it! The official gingerbread house of the White House is made from 340 of goodness, but don’t dare trying to eat it. You surely don’t want this much! Even the White House said it’s not for people to eat, but you know what I say to that? Why make it if you won’t eat it!

The White House gingerbread house is the star in the State Dining Room. While the cookie-filled house is made from 200 pounds of gingerbread dough, 100 pounds of pastillage dough, 20 pounds of chocolate and 20 pounds of royal icing, the White House advises “it is not meant for eating.”

The gingerbread house, according to the White House, highlights Melania’s “vision for classic Christmas décor” and “reflects the southern exterior of the Executive Residence with green wreaths and traditional red bows on every window.”

The White House and Melania’s decorations are sure to take heat from the liberals who are mad that they referred to this as the Christmas holiday. Not everyone celebrates Christmas and not everyone has to. But the President does, so does his wife, and their family does too. It’s the most popular American winter holiday tradition and there’s nothing wrong with it. There’s nothing wrong with any of the holidays celebrated during winter, but Christmas is the most popular in the country and that’s just the way things are. Everyone is welcome to celebrate and everyone should. It’s a fun time during the year, so enjoy it!

If any liberals get in your face to talk trash about your Christmas holiday, then there’s one thing you can say to them.

Tell them Merry Christmas!

Urgent ALERT: Top Christmas Gift DEADLY… Get Rid Of It NOW!!!

It’s already too late for some kids…

Published

on

Each year we have that different toy that every kid wants and is sold out everywhere, but this year that toy might come with serious consequences.

Although these accusations haven’t been proven, a mother has taken to Facebook to warn fellow parents not to buy Hatchimals bath bombs products for their kids this Christmas season after her young daughter was left with what appears to be first-degree chemical burns all over her body.

Jennifer Renee who lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, posted what appears to be very disturbing pictures of her daughter Willow’s painful looking injuries on Facebook last week. The pictures were of her daughter’s distressing chemical burn injuries after using the Hatchimals Bath Bomb toy. She went on to claim her child sat in the bath for what was only 30 to 45 seconds when her skin became inflamed, red, and painful to the touch.

The mother later confirmed on her Facebook page that her daughter Willow had been diagnosed as having suffered a chemical burn and not an allergic reaction as she previously had suspected.

She then proceeded to call the company who produces this product, Spin Master and later revealed that the batch number is being investigated and will “likely” be recalled because of previous complaints.

This Young Girl Got A Serious Chemical Burn From A Bath Bomb via the Daily Mail:

A representative for Spin Master, which owns the Hatchimals brand, has responded with a statement: “Spin Master has been looking into the matter with the manufacturer and licensee to whom we license the Hatchimals brand. Safety is our top priority and we are deeply saddened to learn of the girl’s injuries. At this point, Global Brands Group has not found any indication of a product defect or manufacturing issue. Additionally, the product formulation has been subject to stringent safety testing and meets all industry standards.”

The Global Brands Group, the Hatchimals distributer, also provided a statement after reviewing the case: “Global Brands Group takes the safety of our products very seriously. We manufacture and ship millions of bath bombs and body washes, and have rigorous processes in place around development and testing, as well as all aspects of production. After careful review, we are confident our Hatchimals bath products are, in fact, safe. However, it is recommended that consumers be mindful of any adverse reactions they may have based on personal allergies or sensitivities.
The Spin Master representative who emailed us alleges that Jennifer Renee’s statement that an FDA expert responded to her specific accusations (in the photo posted by her on Facebook) is false, and that the photographed statement is unclear, and possibly taken out of context. We have reached out to the FDA consumer officer and will update this story as we learn more.

Kids aren’t looking for a fancy claw-footed bathtub with bubbles that are perfectly fluffed just so for the ‘gram — they’re just in there to get clean and get out. But many parents avoid potential temper tantrums around bath time by filling the water with washable soap crayons and fizzy balls of soaps that turn into toys. Sadly, it’s not always suds and smiles, as we learned from one mother who just issued a warning against a bath toy that allegedly gave her daughter a serious chemical burn.

In the case of Jennifer Renee and her daughter Willow, it was a Hatchimal that took bath time from fun to frightening. The Wonderball of bath bombs, a Hatchimal (like, hatching animals) looks like a giant egg, and it that dissolves on contact with water, “hatching” to reveal a “mystery surprise” (usually a plastic animal charm or figurine). Although, for Jennifer and Willow, the real surprise in the Hatchimal was burning pain.

Thursday, Jennifer posted her cautionary story on Facebook, claiming that she dropped a Hatchimal soap toy into Willow’s bath, and less than a minute after touching the water, Willow suffered red chemical burns all over her skin.

“PSA! Do NOT buy this for your children!” she wrote next to the split image of the Hatchimal product box and Willow’s burned hand. “Followed directions on package and placed in her bathtub,” Jennifer’s post continued. “Thought it would be fun for her because there was a toy inside. After being in the water 30-45 seconds she stated her skin was hurting, upon looking she has received a chemical burn from a KIDS BATH BOMB. (no she was not holding it and she has used multiple different kinds of bath bombs and never had this reaction) Just a warning people.”

After taking Willow to see a doctor to asses the reaction, Jennifer updated her post, explaining that the doctor ruled the irritation a chemical burn, more than just a simple adverse skin reaction. A chemical burn, as dermatologist Josh Zeichner explains it to us, is “a general term that refers to an allergic irritation reaction in the skin;” the common causes of the skin allergies of this type, include certain fragrances, preservatives, and dyes.

And in the case of the burning Hatchimal, Julie M. Barrows, a consumer safety officer from the Office of Cosmetics and Colors sector of the FDA, allegedly responded to Jennifer’s post, saying Willow’s reaction was likely caused by the D&C Red No. 33 dye. She reportedly explained in her note to Jennifer that the red dye is categorized as suitable for “externally applied cosmetics” (think: lipstick), but it “may not be used for bath products.

I am not saying this woman is a liar. But if there were previous complaints wouldn’t you think this wouldn’t be the first time we would have heard about this? I very much doubt Spin Master, who has a spotless safety record and produces millions of these products would have kept quiet all this time and risk multiple lawsuits instead of immediately recalling the product before more children were affected by whatever is in these toys that are causing the burns.

Please share if you want to get to the bottom of this issue….

SHOCKING NEWS Out Of TEXAS – 60-70 Bodies Found Rotting In Field … This Is HORRIFIC!

Published

on

America’s criminal justice system is a finely tuned machine with one purpose; justice for all. While good old-fashioned detective work, canvassing, questioning and sometimes a gut instinct will never be replaced during investigations into criminal activity, the fastest evolving part of an investigation is the forensic science.

As citizens of this great nation, we are constantly in search of a way to make sure that no innocent person is punished and no guilty person gets off scot-free. However, the more sadistic and creative the criminals get, the more tedious and meticulous those who try to catch them might be. While this looks like a few trips to a computer on TV shows, the reality is that forensic science is a dirty business and one that most of us don’t completely understand.

In order to determine things like how long a person has been dead, scientists and investigators need to actually observe a body decompose in a controlled environment, and that’s just is happening at a body farm in Texas. Daily Mail reports that the bodies are exposed to the elements and covered with cages to keep scavengers off them, and while it’s for a good cause, it’s truly horrific to see:

“These gruesome images show the inside of a body farm – a graveyard where the dead are left to rot in open cages.

Rows upon row of dead bodies are lined up in the metal pens in the remote Texan field as part of scientific research into how corpses rot.

In fact, despite its grisly appearance, the so-called body farms actually help police solve crimes by helping to determine when victims were killed.”

Scientists at The Forensic Anthropology Centre at Texas State University are able to use the donated dead bodies and compare them to those killed in suspicious circumstances.

The information gathered here can be used in a court of law and researchers have been called to give evidence for the prosecution and defense. The bodies can also be used to help with facial reconstruction.

By using the skulls and images of those who volunteer for the open burial scientists can help police to reconstruct what an actual victim may have looked like.

They often have worked in law enforcement so know how useful the facilities are, decomposition expert Dr. Danny Wescott told CBS Austin.”

Just like a person can choose to be an organ donor, someone can also donate their body to science after they pass on. This is just one of the possibilities for what could be done with someone who makes that donation.  It’s far from a pleasant sight to see, however, the work is one of those unpleasant necessities to keep crime down.

Without endeavors like this one, the forensic departments would have no way of training their scientists to determine exact times of death, which markings on a body come from attacks and which come from scavengers, etc. That is important, not only in the sense that it helps bring justice for the families of those killed, but knowing that it’s getting increasingly more difficult to get away with a crime, keeps crime down. Behavior will always depend on its consequences, and without an effective way to punish attackers, more attacks would happen.

Dr. Danny Wescott has spent a number of years leading the research of skeletons at the US university.

He said: ‘It allows us to see how bodies decompose. We work with law enforcement officials and help with the training of local police cadets.

‘We get bodies given to us specifically to use. Living donors offer their bodies as donations. We also take next of kin donation.

‘We have two criteria for the bodies – they must be under 500 pounds when they die. And they must not have any active infectious diseases like hepatitis C. We also accept cremains.

‘It then gets assigned to a research project. The bodies can be left out in the field for six months to a couple of years.

‘The skeleton is then used for further research. In fact, most of the research is done on skeletons.’

To be a part of the body farm most people volunteer before their death – although some are donated by next of kin. Police then observe how different factors influence the way the bodies decompose.

‘Law enforcement provides different scenarios and we look at the effects of clothing and things like diabetes on the body,’ Dr. Wescott said.

‘It allows us to give estimations on death to the police. We can also help with facial reconstruction.

‘Because we know what the person looked like before they died we can compare this with what those who draw the facial reconstruction images have come up with.

‘We also look at the ecology side – and how it impacts specifically on insects. We have scientists here from the UK because there is a demand for it.’

The bodies have to be caged to protect them from vultures, which are rife in Texas.
‘At the moment we have between 65 and 70 bodies. There are more men than women but we also get some couples who donate their bodies,’ Dr.Wescott said.

This might not be the kind of place that you want to go on a family vacation, but it might just be what keeps the streets a little safer wherever you do take your vacation. Like many of the aspects of law enforcement, this isn’t a particularly pleasant task, but one that has to be done if we are going to try to keep our nation safe.

It’s Official! The Camera Just Caught It…Secret Is Out Now After The Shocking Reveal!

Published

on

First Lady Melania Trump has been exceptionally busy during her first Christmas season in the White House. Despite all the festivities and responsibilities she has in her new role, she kept herself even busier with spreading compassion to the hundreds of victims of this year’s natural disasters. Now that she’s back in Washington, D.C., she’s settling back into her festive routine for the rest of December when a photo was snapped of her and President Trump. While the shot looks stunning as ever, there’s something unexpected that the camera caught. Now the secret is out and the first lady is bracing herself for the inevitable attacks.

There is absolutely nothing this incredible presidential pair can do without coming under an onslaught of scrutiny from their detractors. The couple’s first White House Christmas picture was no exception. Everyone immediately noticed something “wrong” with it as soon as the official portrait was revealed. Now there’s no more hiding it and there’s nothing wrong with that either. However, leave it to hateful, anti-Christmas liberals to turn the image “issue” into major allegations against the Trumps.

Opposing Views reports:

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have revealed their official Christmas card for 2017.

The first lady debuted the card on Twitter on Dec. 14, reports Empty World.

In the caption accompanying the Trump’s Christmas card photo, the first lady tweeted: Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania [email protected] & @FLOTUS are seen Tuesday, December 5, in their official 2017 Christmas portrait, in the Cross Hall of the White House in Washington, D.C.”

Seems like an elegant and perfect Christmas card, right? Well, liberals took immediate notice and concern of something else. Rather than realizing that this was a shot that was supposed to be just of the President and First Lady, people began to react to the fact that their youngest son Barron, wasn’t in the photo greeting.

“This Christmas…Barron Trump is HOME ALONE!” one commenter said, cleverly making reference to the popular 1990 movie of the same name. As the remarks and question of the boy’s absence came pouring in, the next plausible step for Internet sleuths was to start a hashtag for it – since that’s what they do.

The hashtag “Where’s Barron” almost immediately made an appearance. “For the photo, the first lady wore a sleeveless, long, black dress, with pointed black stilettos, while the president wore a black tuxedo with a matching bow tie,” Opposing Views pointed out of our stunning first couple. “They are seen smiling, hand in hand, standing in front of the White House double doors, with two Christmas trees on either side, each of which is covered in fake snow.”

The couple is certainly used to the criticism at this point since it’s been a solid year of such ridiculous attacks that have no sign of slowing in the new year. They probably realized that they are “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” with including Barron in the picture since the criticism then would have been why they didn’t have the rest of Trump’s children in the shot. Chances are, they decided to just keep it simple.

Opposing Views has more:

Prior to unveiling the photo, the White House debuted a video of Melania Trump getting the property ready for the holidays, decorating the trees, preparing wreaths, and supervising the baking of cookies.

Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady’s office, confirmed via tweet that a huge gingerbread house was also prepared, constructed from 300 pounds of dough, reports Time.

Also on display are former President Ronald Reagan’s china and former President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of “A Christmas Carol.”

More details on the decorations are provided by The Daily Beast, which reports that also on display are 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, more than 18,000 lights, more than 12,000 ornaments, over 3,100 yards of ribbon and more than 1,000 feet of garland.

The Daily Beast’s Tim Teeman thought it was overkill, however, and declared it the “creepiest home space in America,” comparing it to scenery from a Tim Burton movie and recommending that the first lady keep the Christmas decorations up for next Halloween.

In addition to the card and video, Melania Trump also issued an official Christmas statement, reports Time. “The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” she said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays.”

The root of the issue is probably jealousy that the Trumps are in the White House and Hillary Clinton is not on this Christmas card as she and all of her supporters expected to see before her major loss in the presidential elections. We have a lot of reasons to celebrate this season and the two people in this picture have a lot to do with that.
