Hope Helps

Hope and futureBy Cathy Jameson

I dropped the ball.  I hate it when that happens.  After successfully helping one family, another was looking forward to my suggestions and assistance.  We’d set a date to meet, but I forgot.  When the day arrived, I had nothing but an apology to give them.

“I’m so sorry.  Life got busy…I’ll have time again next week.”  Life did get really busy, both at home and at my job.  Time is precious.  At certain points in life, time can feel like its slipping through your fingers.  It especially feels like that when your child is not hitting milestones as quickly as other children are.  I was disappointed in myself for not keeping better track of things.  The family who was expecting my input must’ve been disappointed as well. 

“I’ll call you.  I promise,” I said.

“That would be great,” the mom replied.

I had big plans to put some amazing resources together for her.  I’d already been in communication about some summer camps, ones that offer hands-on experiences for kids who are experiencing delays.  I’d sent links with other helpful information, which she and her husband appreciated.  When a family who is struggling reaches out, and who then listens to your advice, you want to continue to help them navigate the unknown.  I thankfully get another chance to do that.  Next week.  When life slows down quite a bit.  When I can dedicate two entire days to giving them hope.

Hope helps.

It helps people grow in faith, in trust, and in confidence.

Young parents need all three to get through some stages, including the ones their child is struggling through at the moment. 

Being an advocate for others has been a gift to me, and I promise not to mess things up again for this couple.  Thankfully, I get a second chance to help and to offer them some hope.  If that isn’t inspiring enough, in the process of this family reaching out, two more are waiting to talk to me as well.  Hope’s gotten me through tons of situations, and I’d like for these families to be able to walk the next part of their journeys with some hopeful direction, too.  As busy and tiring as the last two weeks have been, I’m really looking forward to next week.  That’s when I get to dedicate my energy some deserving children.

Get Trump Alan DershowitzIn light of last week's legal case, we thought we'd share this book from Skyhorse Publishing. It's not an endorsement nor is it a a giddy cheer. It's just a book you might want to read.   In Get Trump: The Threat to Civil Liberties, Due Process, and Our Constitutional Rule of Law, Alan Dershowitz—#1 New York Times bestselling author and one of America’s most respected legal scholars—analyses the unremitting efforts by political opponents of Donald Trump to “get” him—to stop him from running in 2024—at any cost.
Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by Politico and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by Newsweek.
Get Trump makes clear that unconstitutional efforts to stop Trump from retaking the presidency challenge the very foundations of our liberty: due process, right to counsel, and free speech. Those who justify these dangerous departures from the rule of law argue that the threat posed by a second Trump presidency is “different” and “immediate,” while the departures from constitutional norms are longer term and more abstract.
Dershowitz explains that defenders of Trump’s constitutional rights—even those like him who oppose Trump politically—are sought to be silenced; their free speech rights attacked, their integrity questioned, and their careers threatened. Much of the media substitutes advocacy against Trump for objective reporting, while many in academia petition and propagandize against rights they previously valued—all in the interest of getting Trump.
The essence of justice is that it must be equally applicable to all, Dershowitz notes. No one is above the law but digging to find crimes in order to influence an election does not constitute the equal application of the law. In order to assure equal application in comparable situations, he proposes two criteria for indicting a likely candidate of the opposing party: the Richard Nixon standard and the Hillary Clinton standard—and most recently, the Joe Biden standard.
Get Trump warns that regardless of whether this anti-democratic effort to stop Trump from running succeeds or fails, it is likely to create dangerous precedents that will lie around like loaded weapons ready to be deployed against other controversial candidates, officials, or citizens about whom it can be argued that the danger they pose “is different.”




I love this video. It is bitter sweet, when good men that have been hurt, comes out fighting. Have you seen it? Tony Lyons is the owner of Skyhorse.

As in Robert Malone stands in front of the Lincoln Memorial during a vaccine protest events and at the end of his speech gives a quote, "Truth is like a lion it does not need to be protected, just set free".


Jamie's bank likes art....

"Founded over 60 years ago, the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, branded as Art at Work, continues to focus on emerging, developing and under-recognized artists globally. Recognizing that artists are entrepreneurs and small businesses, our investment in their work makes a positive impact. Artists and the creative economy contribute to vibrant communities where we do business. Art at Work brings that vibrancy into the workplace.
The Art Collection and Program are dynamic and evolving. Built on the solid foundation of Rockefeller’s vision, the collection has always embraced emerging contemporary art. Art at Work reflects and aligns with the firm's 21st-century business principles and priorities: diversity, innovation, technology, sustainability, creativity, and excellence.

The JPMorgan Chase Art Collection began in 1959 when David Rockefeller, then president of The Chase Manhattan Bank, established the firm's Art at Work Program, the first of its kind in the modern era. "


A possible outcome of a 3 horse race.....

Electoral College Ties
"The discussion on this page is mostly written around a 269-269 tie between two candidates. However, much of the same would come into play if a third party or independent candidate wins enough electoral votes to prevent any candidate in the race from reaching the required 270 electoral vote threshold."

"...and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified."

Why Jamie Dimon is thinking about the presidency

"He has at least one enthusiastic backer. Reuters reported that billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman called on Dimon to run for president in 2024. "We need an exemplary business, financial, and global leader to manage through what is likely to be a critically important decade for our country in determining our destiny," Ackman wrote on Twitter. "Jamie Dimon is that leader.""

JPMorgan CEO's Bitcoin Bashing Is a 'Do as I Say, Not as I Do' Situation
Jamie Dimon's bank agreed to play a key role with BlackRock's proposed bitcoin ETF, just weeks after he told U.S. senators: "I've always been deeply opposed to crypto, bitcoin, etc."


Kim-I love your memoir from Skyhorse Publishing about the extreme hardships and sacrifices you are making for your three daughters with autism. I read it three times and feel like I am reading the same story of events with my adult son who also has autism. You also manage to make it funny as well as poignant and I would like to see you write a new memoir now that your daughters are all grown up. You have a love of writing that I also share with you.


Most of our books were published by Skyhorse, including mine. Our former top donor was a Trump delegate 4 years ago. We have no politics. Vote how you want. Dan declared us Swiss and Swiss we are. Kim


The founder of Skyhorse heads up Bobby’s Super PAC and don’t get me wrong I’m for Bobby however when I think Skyhorse I think Bobby.
