Over the last 40+ years, Tom Selleck has become a household name in America. He has appeared in more than 50 films and television roles over the years. From his adaptation of the outgoing PI to a stoic police chief, Sellick said that one thing has remained the same; he owes it all to Jesus Christ.
According to Selleck he didn’t always have this grounding faith. He was born in Detroit, Michigan on January 29, 1945, Thomas “Tom” William Selleck was raised by hardworking blue-collar parents. His dad was a carpenter and his mother a housewife, though his dad later became an executive and real estate investor. Tom was the second of four children, and when Selleck was 11, his dad realized that carpentry wasn’t for him and moved the family to Sherman Oaks, California and began investing in real estate.
Selleck wasn’t able to afford to go to the four-year university of his choice, the University of Southern California, so he saved his pennies and enrolled in Valley Junior College and earned a basketball scholarship to transfer to USC. He majored in business administration and entered Hollywood after encouraged to do so by a drama coach.
Selleck immediately landed dozens of TV commercials and a few other small roles as well. Then, God offered him another path, Selleck took a break from acting and joined the military to fight in the Vietnam War. He signed with the California National Guard in the 160th infantry regiment and served from 1967 to 1973.
“I am a veteran, I’m proud of it, I was a sergeant in the U.S. Army infantry, National Guard, Vietnam era. We’re all brothers and sisters in that sense.”
After his service, Selleck spent 11 years pursuing his acting career before he landed his first big role in 1980 when he was 35-years old. His role as Hawaii-based private investigator “Thomas Magnum” would change his life forever. According to Selleck though, God asked more of him than just to have a successful career. He knew that he wanted a family, and he was being prompted to follow that objective.
“I just knew that if I wanted a family — which I was thinking seriously about at that point — that it was time at that point to move on. As good as this business has been to me, that’s not what life is about. Life is about more important things. You know, we’ve all struggled as we get successful in this business to balance that, I certainly have.”
After decades as one of the most iconic names in television, Selleck attributes his entire fortune and success to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
“I try very hard to conduct myself in an ethical way, because that’s important to my stability now. We’re a culture that’s so centered on the individual,” Selleck complains. “The culture says that basically nothing is more important than the way you feel. We’re living in an age that celebrates unchecked impulses. A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.”
In a world of crumbling morals that is losing sight of anything but self, it’s so important to remember what life, and eternity are all about. Spoiler alert, it’s not you, and it’s not me. Thanks to Tom Selleck for reminding us of that.

Libs Attack Melania & Barron After Seeing 1 Major Thing They Did Different For WH Christmas Tree Tradition Today
Decorating the Christmas tree is a ritual that many families hold dear. It’s a time-honored tradition that has historically united our nation with feelings of joy, brought on by the Christmas spirit. The Trump family is no exception, and their first Christmas in the White House promises to be a historic one.
The hotly debated First Family is starting off the holidays in the way many of us are, by setting up a tree. Of course, theirs is probably a little bigger than most of ours, and there will be a little more fanfare surrounding its decoration and lighting. The traditions surrounding the White House Christmas tree have gotten a little bit watered down over the past few years, but no longer.
Even though the White House has been plagued by political correctness and racial inequality for the past few years, this year sees a change for the better, and while not everyone might appreciate it, the silent majority is ready for this change. It’s a change that started when President Trump announced that they would be saying “Merry Christmas” again instead of “Happy Holidays.” It’s the change seen in Melania’s determination to bring the nativity scene and Christian values back to the celebration of the birth of Christ and it’s the change in the way every single person is treated by the First Family when rendering service to the White House.
Daily Mail reported on the events surrounding the delivering of the White House Christmas tree, and just what a beautiful occasion it turned out to be this year:
“WASHINGTON (AP) – Melania Trump and son Barron joined in a time-honored tradition of receiving the official White House Christmas tree, which will become the showstopper for a president who has vowed to put Christmas back at the center of the winter holidays.
A military quartet played holiday tunes Monday as a horse-drawn wagon carried the 19 1/2-foot (5.9-meter) Balsam fir from Wisconsin up the White House driveway.
The first lady, wearing a red turtleneck and a coat draped over her shoulders, and 11-year-old Barron, in a dark suit coat, white shirt and dark slacks, circled the tree and then visited with growers Jim and Diane Chapman. The Chapmans own a Wisconsin Christmas tree farm and won an annual contest sponsored by the National Christmas Tree Association.”
While what the First Family wears is always an attention grabber, what is more, noteworthy in this case is what they said. The First Lady never has to want for a Christmas tree, in fact, the Trump family, in particular, hasn’t really had to scrape for much of anything for the past several decades, but they’re in the White House, giving their time to the American people in order to make this country better.
That dedication to America is seen in the way that Melania Trump addressed the owners of the Christmas tree farm who grew the tree they will be enjoying this year. Not only is she kind and welcoming to them, but she assures them that she will take great care of their prized tree
“‘This is a beautiful tree. Thank you so much. We will decorate it very nicely,’ the first lady told the Chapmans and other family members. ‘I hope you can come and visit with us.’
The White House grounds superintendent and the chief usher, who oversees the residence, picked out the tree during a September scouting trip.
After Mrs. Trump and Barron gave their symbolic approval, the tree was carefully carted off to the Blue Room where, after a slight trim and the removal of a monstrous chandelier, it will take center stage.
President Donald Trump has been eagerly waiting to celebrate a Trump Christmas at the White House. During last year’s presidential campaign, he railed against the habit of saying ‘Happy holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas,’ characterizing it as a ‘chipping away at Christianity.’
‘And we’re not going to let that happen anymore, folks. I’ll tell you,’ the then-candidate said at a March 2016 news conference in Florida. ‘A lot of times I’ll say at the rallies around Christmastime we’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again. You know, they don’t say it anymore. The department stores don’t put it up. We’re going to start saying it again.'”
While much of what politicians in Washington do is done strictly to gain political chips for reelection it’s easy to see that retaining Christian values is something that is near and dear to the heart of President Trump and the First Lady. This isn’t just a ploy to get people on his side, the President ran and won on the premise that he would help usher America back to being a Christian friendly environment, and he and his family are leading by example.

Say what you will about political correctness, but it’s great to see a traditional Christmas happening in the White House again.

This Is Melania’s Shocking Christmas Theme With Hidden Message To Michelle That Has Her FURIOUS
The Trumps are preparing for their first Christmas in the White House which you can expect to be far different than the last two Christmases while the Obamas were occupying the place. It’s the responsibility of the first lady to decide on a theme for the decor and Melania’s shocking sudden decision is one that Americans will love. However, her predecessor, Michelle Obama, is furious at the hidden message her replacement snuck in right next to the official tree that cannot be ignored.
True to Trump fashion, the first couple are doing things their own way and not making any apologies for it, no matter who it offends, knowing what the country needs now and making it great again. Liberals have hijacked the holiday season for too long with their political correctness and now that’s all coming to an end. The real reason for the season has been absent for the last eight years and now that’s all about to change in a big way that will surely make every liberal snowflake in the country melt. Michelle removed something from the White House that she didn’t like seeing during the holidays and now, Melania isn’t just bringing it back, she’s making sure that it gets a lot of attention – especially Michelle’s who hates the reminder that she’s not in control of Christmas anymore.
Last week, we reported that Melania would be accepting the official White House Christmas tree ahead of schedule since the first family will be spending Thanksgiving in Florida, and will not be in D.C. for the normal date. While there’s nothing wrong with that decision, especially since the Trumps are showing an incredible balance of maintaining White Hosue tradition along with their own family traditions, Michelle isn’t going to like what she sees in the vicinity of this tree.
July Fourth News reports:
President Donald Trump has perfectly clarified that he is saying, “Merry Christmas,” and rejecting the politically correct greeting “Happy Holidays.“ Christians in America expressed joy as the new Commander-in-Chief is speaking our language after years of the Obamas’ generic “holiday“ parties and pagan decorations at the White House. Currently, liberals losers expressed an extreme dislike of nativity scenes and speaking about Christ’s birth are in a precarious situation since Melania’s “secret plan“ for Christmas at the White House has circulated widely on the internet.
First Lady Melania Trump, as all first ladies before her, is taking care of the Christmas plans for the White House. That involves all the decorations, the official tree lighting ceremony, the pageantry, and entertainers for the festivities, and she decides on a “theme,” a tradition started by Jacqueline Kennedy.
Michelle Obama’s theme for her last Christmas in the White House was “The Gift of the Holidays,” which she described as “reflects on not only the joy of giving and receiving, but also the true gifts of life, such as service, friends and family, education, and good health,” according to the CBS.
Michelle’s “Holiday” themes were soulless, entirely lacking warmth, which reflected the decor, characterized as “pagan.” Also, given the fact that it was the Obamas who broke the tradition of having a nativity scene in the White House, and Barack banned them from federal property in 2015. Michele Obama has replaced the keyword “Christmas“ for the official White House Christmas season with the word “Holiday.”
Now, the internet exploded after Melania wrote a simple tweet, but it had an extremely powerful effect all the politically correct losers. “This year’s @WhiteHouse Christmas booklet is in printing! Excited to receive the beautiful tree Monday! #ChristmasTraditions,” Melania tweeted.

However, the great issue for the Christmas haters and those who detest nativity scenes is her hashtag, #ChristmasTraditions. That hashtag is perfectly establishing the mood and the character of White House this Christmas season — and it didn’t make liberals very happy. Actually, their adverse reactions to #ChristmasTraditions were so wicked, we won’t share them here; it’s pure evil.
President Trump already set the tone for the season as a promise he made during his campaigning that we’re going to start saying “Merry Christmas” again, instead of taking religion out of the religious holiday. He’s done that with reaffirming that resolve in an announcement reminding everyone that Jesus is the reason for the season and here in American we’re going to say the words that have been melting liberal snowflakes for years. However, that was just the start. When these anti-Christmas lefties see what he’s doing to the White House Christmas tree, it’s only a matter of time before these liberal Scrooges hit the streets with anti-Christmas carols, screaming their rhetoric.
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have not only made America great again, they are about to make Christmas in this country great again. We’re in for a spectacular season we’ve longed for over the last eight years and there’s a lot to celebrate this year, starting with the massively improved economy that makes Christmas easier for a lot of American families.
Muslims Just Took Over Chicago, Houston, Dallas, New York At Once With Sick Bloody Surprise For Horrified Onlookers
This is sick! We need the ban!
How long are we going to play this game for?
Shi’ite Muslims all around the world have taken it upon themselves to beat themselves, and others, with sharp blades. Masking their bodies in mud and lighting bonfires within the streets to mourn the death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson these days. Because that’s how Muslims do things and if you question them you are an “Islamaphobe.”
So let me get this story straight. The fake prophet Muhammad’s grandson croaked centuries ago and all Muslims lose their ever loving minds? What kind of religion tells people to hurt themselves in the name of the grandchild of their so-called prophet? And to make matters worse they have taken to the streets of Chicago, Houston, Dallas, New York to perform their so-called ritual. While leaving the streets tainted with blood. Can we please evolve to the 21st century” Please?
Queens, New York
As the global jihad grows, Obama is importing hundreds of thousands from jihad nations. If you are hanging your hopes on the “moderates,” think again. According to a recent poll, 58% of US Muslims reject First Amendment criticism of Islam as a right. 46% want blasphemy punished, 12% want them killed.
Muslims are the only immigrant group that comes to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it.
“Meanwhile, An Islamic Fifth Column Builds Inside America,” By Paul Sperry, IBD, October 1, 2015
In berating GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson for suggesting a loyalty test for Muslims seeking high office, CNN host Jake Tapper maintained that he doesn’t know a single observant Muslim-American who wants to Islamize America.
“I just don’t know any Muslim-Americans — and I know plenty — who feel that way, even if they are observant Muslims,” he scowled.
Tapper doesn’t get out much. If he did, chances are he’d run into some of the 51% of Muslims living in the U.S. who just this June told Polling Co. they preferred having “the choice of being governed according to Shariah,” or Islamic law. Or the 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 who told Pew Research they’re more loyal to Islam than America.
Maybe they’re all heretics, so let’s see what the enlightened Muslims think.
If Tapper did a little independent research he’d quickly find that America’s most respected Islamic leaders and scholars also want theocracy, not democracy, and even advocate trading the Constitution for the Quran.
These aren’t fringe players. These are the top officials representing the Muslim establishment in America today.
Hopefully none of them ever runs for president, because here’s what he’d have to say about the U.S. system of government:
• Muzammil Siddiqi, chairman of both the Fiqh Council of North America, which dispenses Islamic rulings, and the North American Islamic Trust, which owns most of the mosques in the U.S.: “As Muslims, we should participate in the system to safeguard our interests and try to bring gradual change, (but) we must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.”
• Omar Ahmad, co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the top Muslim lobby group in Washington: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
• CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”
• Imam Siraj Wahhaj, director of the Muslim Alliance in North America: “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”
• Imam Zaid Shakir, co-founder of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif.: “If we put a nationwide infrastructure in place and marshaled our resources, we’d take over this country in a very short time. . . . What a great victory it will be for Islam to have this country in the fold and ranks of the Muslims.”
Read the rest
What is really truly frightening is the fact that according to the released survey of Muslims residing in the US, a majority of 51% agreed that Muslims in America should have the right of choice of being governed according to shariah. But thankfully when the same question was asked to the broader population, the overwhelming majority felt that shariah should not replace the U.S. Constitution, by an 82% to 2%. Even more concerning though is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish and kill those who give offense to Islam by portraying the prophet Mohammed in a painting or a cartoon.
Listen up Religion of Peace disciples. In the United States, if we have the right to put a picture of Jesus Christ in a bottle of urine and call it art, we have the right to draw any picture of your so-called prophet that we see fit. It’s called freedom, maybe you all should try it sometime. And if you don’t like it, don’t let our doors hit you on the way out.
Please share if you agree Islam has no place in our United States of America….
