President Trump headlined a jam-packed rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Tuesday night, hours after his attorneys wrapped up their opening arguments in his Senate impeachment trial — and minutes after sources told Fox News that Republicans don’t have the votes yet to block additional witnesses who could extend the proceedings.
An elevated level of enthusiasm was evident in the larger-than-normal crowd sizes inside and outside the Wildwoods Convention Center, and Fox News spoke to several attendees who had been waiting more than 24 hours to ensure they would be seated.
“While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the congressional Democrats are obsessed with demented hoaxes, crazy witch hunts, and deranged partisan crusades,” Trump said. “We will make sure they face another crushing defeat in the next election.”
…”We have tens of thousands of people outside,” Trump said to chants of “Four more years!” and other cheers. “If anyone would like to give them your place, please let us know.”
The president then touted the “blue-collar boom” in the economy — including historically low unemployment, rising wages especially among low-income workers, and soaring markets.
“Earnings for the bottom 10 percent are rising faster than earnings for the top 10 percent, for the first time ever,” Trump said. “Since my election, the net worth for the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47 percent, three times faster than the increase for the top one-percent. Median household income is at an all-time high; for President Bush, in eight years it was $450. Under President Barack Hussein Obama, for eight years, it was $975. … Under your favorite president, and when you include the tax cuts, the regulation cuts … under President Trump, for three years, the number is almost $10,000 — and it’s going up. That’s a big difference.”
Trump added: “The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We don’t need anybody else’s energy anymore. It’s so nice.”
Democrats, by contrast, would “demolish” the U.S. economy, Trump said, noting that their health care plans — including proposals to pay for the health care of illegal immigrants — simply were too expensive and inefficient.
“We are saving your health care while the Democrats are trying to take away your health care, take away your doctors,” Trump said.
Touting his administration’s recent victory in a key Supreme Court case on the so-called “public charge rule,” Trump remarked, “We will now finally be able to enforce federal law and ensure that those seeking admission to our country are able to support themselves financially and not abuse taxpayer-funded programs.”
He continued, “On no issue have Washington Democrats more thoroughly betrayed the American people than the issue of immigration.”
Trump also hit Democrats for largely opposing restrictions on even late-term abortion, saying, “every child is a sacred gift from God.” Trump recently became the first president to speak at the pro-life March for Life rally in Washington.
“I got it done, and I mean I solely got it done,” Trump said to applause later, referring to the passage of his landmark criminal justice reform bill. “You have to thank yourself, because nobody else is going to do it.”
…Meanwhile, in Washington, Trump’s legal team wrapped up its defense earlier in the day, setting up a 16-hour question period on Wednesday. Although Trump’s acquittal by the Republican-controlled Senate is all but assured, his team has tried to minimize the political damage.
And, the president apparently was hoping to use impeachment to motivate his political base and independents disenchanted with impeachment to turn out in greater numbers this fall.
Jay Sekulow, one of his lawyers, used his time before the Senate to offer a list of attacks against Trump’s perceived foes — from ousted FBI agents to secret federal courts — and to highlight what he saw as politically driven maneuvering by the Democrats to oust the president.
“Danger, danger, danger,” he told senators. “That’s politics. You’re being called upon to remove the duly elected president of the United States. That’s what these articles of impeachment call for.”
White House counsel Pat Cipollone, also part of the defense, added: “What they are asking you do is to throw out a successful president on the eve of an election, with no basis, and in violation of the Constitution.”
“Why not trust the American people with this decision? Why tear up their ballots?” Cipollone continued. “The election is only months way. The American people are entitled to choose their president.”
Last night, American Citizens living in Wildwood, New Jersey heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.
Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.
You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.
While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.
As his poll numbers show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.
He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.
Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.
Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made the citizens of New Jersey, along with the rest of us average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation by listing the things he has been able to accomplish for our Sovereign Nation while being attacked by the opposition party worse than any president before him.
This, gentle readers, is an American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens
This man is indeed a “radical change”.
And, that is why the professional politicians within the Far Left Democratic Party are obsessed with removing him from office.
He interfered with their plans to change America into something which she was never meant to be: a Marxist Nation.
President Trump must be acquitted and the Democrats must be soundly defeated in 2020.
America’s future is at stake…now more than ever.
Until He Comes,
