Trump Delivers Awesome SOTU Address, Petulant Pelosi Tears Up Her Copy Afterwards

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump went on the offensive against socialism and left-wing policies during his third State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night, arguing that Democrats “want to take away your health care, take away your doctor, and abolish private insurance entirely,” while creating a “lure” for illegal immigration.

All but ignoring the historic impeachment drama that flanks this year’s address, Trump opted instead to publicly challenge Democrats on policy grounds while touting what he called the “blue-collar boom” in the country. The tensions over impeachment appeared to surface, however, as the president seemingly snubbed a handshake offer from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., while Republican lawmakers chanted, “Four more years!”

Then, at the speech’s conclusion, Pelosi dramatically ripped up her copy of Trump’s speech on-camera.

The night was full of other dramatic, made-for-TV moments: Trump introduced a warfighter back from deployment to his shocked wife (which was not included in prepared remarks of the speech delivered in advance to reporters); awarded radio host Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom on the spot; issued an academic scholarship to a needy family; and introduced a surviving member of the Tuskegee Airmen.

“As we work to improve Americans’ healthcare, there are those who want to take away your health care, take away your doctor, and abolish private insurance entirely,” Trump said. “One hundred thirty-two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system, wiping out the private health insurance plans of 180 million Americans. To those watching at home tonight, I want you to know: We will never let socialism destroy American health care.”

He added: “Over 130 legislators in this chamber have endorsed legislation that would bankrupt our Nation by providing free taxpayer-funded healthcare to millions of illegal aliens, forcing taxpayers to subsidize free care for anyone in the world who unlawfully crosses our borders. These proposals would raid the Medicare benefits our seniors depend on, while acting as a powerful lure for illegal immigration.

Pelosi appeared to mouth “not true” as Trump said Democrats would pay illegal immigrants’ health care — although virtually all Democratic presidential contenders indicated they would support such a measure during a recent debate.

“This is what is happening in California and other States — their systems are totally out of control, costing taxpayers vast and unaffordable amounts of money,” Trump continued. “If forcing American taxpayers to provide unlimited free healthcare to illegal aliens sounds fair to you, then stand with the radical left. But if you believe that we should defend American patients and American seniors, then stand with me and pass legislation to prohibit free Government healthcare for illegal aliens!”

The address comes one day before the Senate is slated to deliver its verdict in the impeachment trial that has divided the nation. Trump is widely expected to win acquittal. But he did not mention those proceedings directly in his speech.

Drawing some audible murmurs of disapproval from Democrats in the chamber, Trump repeatedly took aim at the Obama administration’s economic and foreign policies.

“If we had not reversed the failed economic policies of the previous administration, the world would not now be witness to America’s great economic success,” Trump said. “Under the last administration, more than 10 million people were added to the food stamp rolls. Under my administration, 7 million Americans have come off of food stamps, and 10 million people have been lifted off of welfare.”

As he did during the 2019 State of the Union, Trump again directly condemned socialism — and introduced a high-profile guest from embattled Venezuela.

“Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó,” Trump said. “Mr. President, please take this message back to your homeland. All Americans are united with the Venezuelan people in their righteous struggle for freedom! Socialism destroys nations. But always remember, freedom unifies the soul.”

Drawing more audible complaints from Democrats, Trump further hammered “sanctuary city” policies that shield illegal immigrants from federal immigration authorities.

“Tragically, there are many cities in America where radical politicians have chosen to provide sanctuary for these criminal illegal aliens,” Trump said. “In Sanctuary Cities, local officials order police to release dangerous criminal aliens to prey upon the public, instead of handing them over to ICE to be safely removed. Just 29 days ago, a criminal alien freed by the Sanctuary City of New York was charged with the brutal rape and murder of a 92-year-old woman. The killer had been previously arrested for assault, but under New York’s sanctuary policies, he was set free. If the city had honored ICE’s detainer request, his victim would be alive today. The State of California passed an outrageous law declaring their whole State to be a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants — with catastrophic results.”

“The state of our union is stronger than ever before,’ Trump declared early on to applause, as most Democrats — including those who have recently sought to have the president removed from office — remained seated, stone-faced and apparently dejected.

Indeed they were.

What Americans witnessed last night was the behavior of a bunch of political elitists who have placed self-aggrandizement and the love of a failed political philosophy (Marxism) above love of country and their duty as elected representatives in a Constitutional Republic.

The behavior of the Democrats was exemplified by the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and her attitude toward President Trump.

She actually expected him to shake her cold clammy hand after she has spent the first three years of his administration trying to unseat him from office.

I would not have shook her hand, either.

The president went on to deliver a wonderful State of the Union Address which included several highlights, not the least of which was a surprised Rush Limbaugh being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award that any civilian can receive.

In my humble opinion, it was well-deserved.

Over the last three years the Democrats’ have more than justified the opinion of them which is held by the average Americans between the coasts whom Hillary referred to as “Deplorables”.

Their behavior has reached a crescendo with their antics in the Senate Impeachment Trial, the Iowa Caucus, and now, the SOTU Address.

Average Americans will not forget their lies, nor will they forget the image of Nancy Pelosi, waiting until she was certain that the camera was on her and then tearing up her copy of the address.

Speaker Pelosi meant it as an act of defiance.

Americans will see it for what it was: a petulant act by a professional politician whose plans to overturn the will of the American people failed spectacularly, leaving her and her fellow Far Left Democrat Politicians in a hole from which they may never crawl out of.

“The Art of the Deal”: Closing Arguments Monday, SOTU Tuesday, Acquittal Wednesday

09-wasting-days-dt-600

“One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow. There are people—I categorize them as life’s losers—who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.” – Donald J. Trump, “The Art of the Deal”

FoxNews.com reports that

Republicans in the Senate secured enough votes Friday evening to reject Democratic efforts to extend the impeachment trial of President Trump and call new witnesses, paving the way for his widely expected acquittal next week on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said late Friday he expects to “conclude the trial in the coming days” as the Senate approved the framework to continue the trial on Monday, with a final up-or-down vote on Wednesday.

After hours of debate during the day on Friday, the Senate voted 51-49 to block a Democratic motion to call new witnesses. The vote came after vehement demands from Democrats to call former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about the Trump-Ukraine saga. Two Republicans — Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Maine Sen. Susan Collins — voted with Democrats.

“A majority of the U.S. Senate has determined that the numerous witnesses and 28,000-plus pages of documents already in evidence are sufficient to judge the House Managers’ accusations and end this impeachment trial,” McConnell said after the vote.

Democrats decried the failure of the motion.

“America will remember this day, unfortunately, where the Senate did not live up to its responsibilities, where the Senate turned away from truth and went along with a sham trial,” said Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Later on Friday evening, Senate Republicans voted down four amendments offered by Democrats to call Bolton and White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, among others. Chief Justice Roberts told Schumer before that vote series that he would not break ties in the Senate, after Democrats in recent days raised the possibility Roberts could possibly tip the scales for them during votes on amendments.

“I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government, to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts told Schumer.

The vote on witnesses came as Trump was flying to Florida. A senior administration official aboard Air Force One said that the reaction to the Senate vote was “calm, but pleased.”

“Nothing like applause or cheering, but just a recognition that things are clearly going in the right direction,” the official said.

There will be no trial action over the weekend. The trial will resume Monday with closing arguments by the impeachment managers and defense counsel. Senators will have the opportunity to make speeches on Monday and Tuesday.

The final vote will come the same week as Iowa’s caucuses on Monday and the State of the Union address on Tuesday. A senior congressional source told Fox News that there has been no discussion about postponing the speech, as advance teams have been crawling all over the Capitol in preparation for Tuesday’s address.

Earlier Friday, it became apparent that Republicans had the votes to shut down any new witnesses from testifying in the trial, with Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, announcing they wouldn’t defect.

After the vote on witnesses, Trump drew attention to the number of witnesses during the House’s impeachment proceedings: “Democrats = 17 Witnesses. Republicans = 0 Witnesses.”

It came out late on Friday night that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell had talked to President Trump, who had given his okay to the timing of the final vote.

And, I can understand why he did: it’s perfect.

During the Closing Arguments on Monday, I have no doubt that Jay Sekulow and the Trump Defense Team will perform as flawlessly as they already have.

They have embarrassed the House Managers time and time again, making them look like a bunch of political hacks obsessed with removing a duly-elected President from office.

Which, of course, is exactly what they are.

After that drubbing on Monday, President Trump will address a Joint Session of Congress and deliver what promises to be a barnburner of a State of the Union Address.

One of my fellow writers at SpartaReport.com suggested that advertisers forget about the Super Bowl and buy time in the State of the Union instead.

It is going to be that good.

Who, in their right mind, can seriously argue against the accomplishments of President Donald J. Trump?

As one of his Presidential Reelection Campaign slogans says,

Promises Made. Promises Kept.

And, within that resides the very reason for the ongoing coup attempt by the Democrats to remove him from office.

Whoever they choose as their Presidential Candidate does not stand a chance of defeating President Trump this November…and they know it.

But, I digress…

After what is going to be the most matched State of the Union Address in history, the Impeachment Vote will happen at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

And, President Donald J. Trump will be acquitted.

In fact, I would not be surprised at all if some of the Democrats cross over to vote for his acquittal.

Especially, if they live in a Red State and they want to be reelected to the Senate.

Pelosi Claims SOTU Golf Clap “Wasn’t Sarcastic”, Then Does it With “Stars” at MusiCares Person of the Year Show

Pelosi-Perry-Bloom

Yeah, they can all clap like seals. But, can they all balance a ball on their nose, also?

FoxNews.com reports that

After defending her ‘sarcastic clap’ directed at President Donald Trump during Tuesday’s State of the Union speech, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Ca., assured the public it was, in fact, sincere applause.

“It wasn’t sarcastic,” she said to reporters on Wednesday.

She added: “I wanted him to know that was a very welcome message.”

However, it looked anything but sincere as she recreated the moment with Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom and singer Katy Perry.

The Speaker was attending the MusiCares Person of the Year gala in Los Angeles Friday. The event honored country music icon Dolly Parton.

She was caught by cameras laughing and recreating the moment with the entertainers as her husband looked on.

Pelosi’s daughter contradicted her mother’s claim that Tuesday’s initial clap was not sarcastic and harkened back to her childhood.

“Oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she’s disappointed that you thought this would work. But here’s a clap,” Christine Pelosi tweeted.

I was going to say “words fail me”.

But…you know better.

I receive President Trump’s tweets on my phone as soon as he sends them.

however, when I look at them, there always are hundred of Liberals Trolls already on the thread, hurling vile insulting tweets at the president through means of gifs, memes, and expletive-filled, poorly-spelled missives designed to pacify the internal angst and temper tantrum of the individual sending them.

I always wonder how these internet trolls, paid and unpaid, can post such horrible, disrespectful garbage aimed at the president of our mutual country.

I always figured it was lack of home training.

However, after watching the actions of San Fran Nan Pelosi and the rest of the Far Left Democratic Party, including the “useful idiots” in Hollywood and the rest of the Entertainment Industry, I realize that we are witnessing what I have described as the rise of the “New Bolsheviks”.

The Democratic Hierarchy are ideologues dedicated to “radically changing” our Constitutional Republic into “just another country” governed through “Democratic Socialism”.

The Democrats have to be the most arrogant and stupid political party in history to believe that attacking a sitting president who has accomplished so much for the American people in so short a time will win them the approval of the average Americans between the two coasts who put him in office in the first place.

They do not seem to comprehend that it was their overestimation of their popularity which cost them the 2016 Presidential Election in the first place. Their anti-American policies and blatant political corruption, administrated with joyful glee for 8 long years by Barack Hussein Obama did nothing for Democrats except lose them the presidency by producing a visceral hatred of them by those Americans whom they continue to insult on a daily basis.

The Democrats have not been the party of the “working man” for decades. In fact, since the Far Left have taken over the party, they have become nothing but a conglomeration of special interest groups, drawn together by their desire to “radically change” America into a nation governed by adherents to the failed theories of Karl Marx, as I mentioned earlier.

The Democratic Party has done nothing since November of 2016 to attempt to calm down their minions such as the black-robed cowards of Antifa, or the “New Bolsheviks who tried to storm Capitol Hill during the Kavanaugh Hearings, no matter how their individual candidates promised to “get along” with Republicans during the Midterm Campaign.

They certainly were not “getting along” with Acting Attorney General Whitaker the other day when he came to answer their questions, were they?

What the Democrats need to remember is that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In the case of their continued attacks on and planned investigations against President Trump, they need to remember that they live in a humongous glass house.

And, it is very hard to deliver a sarcastic “golf clap” in wrist and ankle shackles in an orange jumpsuit.

SOTU 2019: “America Will Never Be a Socialist Country”…Why He’s Right

State-of-the-Union-Trump-pledges-to-get-border-wall-built

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.” – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump vowed during his State of the Union address on Tuesday that “America will never be a socialist country,” in an apparent rebuke to self-described Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders that drew loud cheers and a standing ovation from Republicans in the House chamber — as well as supportive applause from House speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Trump cited the economic decline and civil disorder in Venezuela as a cautionary tale, after his administration last week imposed sweeping sanctions against the incumbent regime of Nicolas Maduro.

The country’s government in recent years limited citizens’ access to foreign currency, implemented substantial subsidies and price controls on food and other items, and fell victim to sweeping corruption — before effectively collapsing last month.

“Two weeks ago, the United States officially recognized the legitimate government of Venezuela, and its new interim president, Juan Guaido,” Trump began. “We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom — and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.

“Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump continued, prompting boos from Republicans in the chamber. “America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”

Then, after a prolonged chant of “USA” broke out, Trump concluded, “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

Democrats largely remained seated as Republicans resumed the “USA” chant and applauded for several seconds. Sanders kept his head in his hand and grimaced.

The effective collapse of Venezuela has forced some far-left progressive Democrats into an awkward position. In a series of social media posts in January, Sanders — who is considering another run for the White House — acknowledged that “the economy is a disaster” in Venezuela, but he largely blamed the Maduro government for conducting what he called a “violent crackdown” on dissidents and the rule of law.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez is set to unveil a massive “Green New Deal” with Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey next week, and on Monday she told her fellow representatives in a letter that the proposal calls for a “national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II.”

Democratic leaders, including Pelosi, have not yet signed onto the expansive plan.

Through it all, the Green New Deal would additionally “promote justice and equity by preventing current and repairing historic oppression to frontline and vulnerable communities,” according to Ocasio-Cortez.

Several analysts have cautioned that the liberal firebrand is in over her head, even though the as-yet vague and uncertain details about the Green New Deal render a precise calculation impossible. Physicist Christopher Clack has warned that the cost could easily be into the trillions.

On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Hussein Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,

Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”

…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.

Obama was talking about the part of Marxist Theory known as “Socialism”.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Socialism is

  1. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

  2.   a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

  3. a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

If you listen to the Far Left Democratic Party, “Socialism” is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

The problem is Socialism has never worked in any country which has installed it as a form of government.

The failed application of the Marxist Theory of Socialism is responsible for the desolate, impoverished wasteland that is the country of Venezuela, a country which has been “sharing the wealth” for decades.

If it were up to the Far Left Democrats, our Sovereign Nation would be traveling down the same ill-fated path that brought Venezuela to ruin.

America was not founded to be a Socialist Nation.

We are a Constitutional Republic.

I was sitting at my computer last night, trying to think of some pithy words and elegant phrases, with which to summarize why we, as average Americans’, must continue to battle for our American Freedom until our dying breath, against America’s wannabe Socialists in the Far Left Democratic Party, when I remembered what the late great American Movie Star and Outspoken Patriot, John Wayne, said about the subject, back in 1975. It could have just as easily have been yesterday.

…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right-wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel.  But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person.  For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it.  There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior.  We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior.  It isn’t going to stop the greed.  If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money.  It’s just human nature.  We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws. 

As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is.  We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it.  So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic.  What else would we be if you lose optimism?”

The Duke was a prophet.

I believe that one of the main reasons that Liberals are continuing to show their collective as…err…backsides is they fact that they know, in their cold dark hearts, that Trump is going to succeed, as he reviewed his accomplishments so far during his presidency which included bringing back jobs and, in turn, reviving America’s near-extinct Middle Class.

Because as long capitalism is working the way it is supposed to, under the watchful eye of an AMERICAN President, who actually has some business acumen gained through Real World Experience, the Left’s cry for “Socialism” is going to fall on deaf ears.

And, that is a good thing.

Because as Lady Margaret Thatcher once so famously quipped,

The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

…and, you end up like Venezuela.

AOC Invites Flake Elevator Activist, Co-Director of Soros-Funded Org, to SOTU

Ocasio-Archila

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. – Winston Churchill

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s guest for the State of the Union address is an activist who cornered then-Sen. Jeff Flake on live television last year to protest his support for Brett Kavanaugh ahead of the Supreme Court justice’s confirmation.

Her choice of guest came as a newly unearthed sexual-assault claim threatened to rattle the political world. Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, a Democrat, denied an allegation of sexual misconduct first reported by a conservative website. He told reporters that the 2004 encounter with a woman was consensual, and he called the accusation a political “smear.”

Ocasio-Cortez has stayed quiet on that claim. However, on Monday afternoon she tweeted a previous video of her talking during her campaign to protesters at Boston City Hall in early October about sexual assault and power dynamics.

“Sexual assault is about the abuse of power,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the video. “It is always women who are always marginalized. It is the young, it is the interns, it is the immigrant, it is the trans. They are always most at risk because society listens to them the least. And that is why a man believes that an elite education, a high income, and his rich friends can get away with sexual assault.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s State of the Union guest, Ana Maria Archila, said she will wear white and a pin that the congresswoman gave her that says, “Well-behaved women rarely make history.”

“I never thought I’d be excited about being in the same room with Donald Trump,” said Archila, co-executive director of the left-leaning Center for Popular Democracy. She lives in the star freshman Democrat’s New York district.

Ocasio-Cortez invited her a few weeks ago, she said, adding, “We talked about making sure that we, with our presence, express the dignity of people who are under attack from this administration, the resilience. We will try to communicate that with the way we show up in the space.”

Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court justice, also is expected to attend Trump’s address. Justices typically attend such speeches delivered by the president who appointed them.

During Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings in September, Archila and another woman confronted Flake in a Senate elevator and, live on CNN, yelled at the Arizona Republican for his intent to vote for the appellate court judge. Kavanaugh had been accused by Christine Blasey Ford of pinning her to a bed and groping her when the two were teenagers in the 1980s. Flake later said he wanted to delay the Senate vote to give the committee time to investigate. He ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh and is now retired from the Senate.

Kavanaugh angrily denied the accusation and was confirmed to the high court. Still, Ford’s and Kavanaugh’s emotional appeals to the Judiciary Committee were a cultural watershed amid the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct.

Archila said that day was the first time she had revealed her own sexual assault as a child in Colombia.

The Center for Popular Democracy revealed the pairing with a video released on social media.

“Our own @AnaMariaArchil2 showed the world what courage & strength look like in the age of Trump. Tomorrow night, she will join another bada– woman, @AOC @RepAOC for the #SOTU.”

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the post with a public invitation: “This @AnaMariaArchil2, the NY-14 shero that will be accompanying me to the State of the Union tomorrow. She wasn’t planning on leaping into that elevator ahead of the Kavanaugh vote, but after hearing the stories of survivors across the country, she went in. A defining moment.”

Fairfax is next in line to be governor if Democrat Ralph Northam resigns amid a furor over a racist photo in his 1984 yearbook. The sexual-assault allegations were first reported by Big League Politics, the outlet that first published the yearbook image.

Ana Maria Archila is the co-executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.

On May 27, 2017, The Washington Free Beacon reported that

A new $80 million anti-Trump network is being led by an organization whose top funder is liberal billionaire George Soros and which employs former members of the controversial and now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

The Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund, the 501(c)(4) sister organization of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a New York-based nonprofit that receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros, announced at their spring gala Tuesday that they will be heading up the new $80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners, CNN reported.

The network will seek to mobilize new voters and fight voter identification laws. It will also focus on gerrymandering and automatic voter registration programs with an eye on the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.

The group’s stated goal is to “envision and win an innovative pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial and economic justice agenda.” The organization is allied with teachers’ unions and has published studies criticizing charter schools.

According to the organization, it is a “high-impact national organization that builds organizing power to transform the local and state policy landscape through deep, long-term partnerships with leading community-based organizing groups nationwide.”

Can you say, “Socialism through illegal immigration”, gentle readers?

Sure, you can.

Archila joined the group in September 2013.

A profile on Archila says that she emigrated to the U.S. from Bogotá, Colombia, when she was 17 years old. An outdated LinkedIn page says that Archila was formerly the co-executive director of a similar advocacy group, Make the Road New York in Brooklyn, which was the predecessor of CPD.

Archila lives in the Astoria neighborhood of Brooklyn.

If you believe that Archila and the other woman did not plan on leaping into that elevator with Jeff Flake, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

As I have previously reported, George Soros is also one of the funders for the Migrant Caravans who have been trying to invade our Sovereign Nation on our Southern Border.

President Trump must go head to head with the enemies, both foreign and domestic, of our Sovereign Nation in his State of the Union Address tonight.

The immediate threat to our nation’s sovereignty is very real.

Those who wish to turn our Constitutional Republic into a doppelgänger of Venezuela are a few days away from our Southern Border and their enablers in Congress are salivating at the thought of embracing them with open arms in order to further their Far Left Political Agenda of “Democratic Socialism” (Marxism).

Please continue to pray for President Trump.

Our nation’s continued existence is at stake.

Until He Comes,

Trump Delivers “Yuge” SOTU Address: “Together, We are Rediscovering the American Way”

2018-state-union-address

“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address

Last night, as my bride and I arrived home from our Tuesday Night Church Small Group Fellowship, we immediately turned on Fox News to watch the 45th President of the United States of America deliver his State of the Union Address.

FoxNews.com posted the following summary of the address…

President Trump kicked off his first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night by calling on lawmakers of both parties to “set aside our differences” in the combative political environment and work together in “unity.”

“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” the president said.

The president used his hour-long speech to extend an olive branch to his critics and signal a willingness to make bipartisan deals on second-year-agenda priorities like immigration and infrastructure.

“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag,” he said. “Together, we are rediscovering the American way.”

He began his speech by praising heroes during natural disasters and tragedies over the last year, including during the summer shooting of Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice.

“With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House — a guy who took a bullet, almost died, and was back to work three and a half months later: the legend from Louisiana, Congressman Steve Scalise,” Trump said.

Like other presidents before him, Trump used the address to tout first-year accomplishments like “massive tax cuts,” regulation rollbacks, the elimination of ObamaCare’s individual mandate and more.

“This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

Trump also seemed to criticize the protests by NFL football players who have been kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against police shootings of African-Americans.

He praised Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from California, who started a movement to place flags at the graves of fallen service members.

“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” he said.

On immigration, the White House is pushing a plan to broaden eligibility for the DACA program – which gives a reprieve to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, and which Trump is planning to end absent a legislative solution – in exchange for border wall funding and other big changes. The negotiations could be critical for talks to keep the government running past a Feb. 8 deadline.

The president extended an “open hand” to members of both parties to “protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed,” in an apparent reference to DACA and immigration talks.

Further, he calls for bipartisan cooperation on infrastructure: “America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just 1 year — is it not a disgrace that it can now take 10 years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?”

President Trump went on to speak about other subjects, such as Religious Liberty and South Korea.

When I sat down to write this post last night, I first read Politico.com’s summary of the SOTU. What they wrote was nothing like what I watched on my television last night.

They said that President Trump delivered what was supposed to be an optimistic speech in a voice filled with sadness and anger.

Funny. That’s not what I saw.

I saw an American President doing what he does best: speaking in clear, concise tones, expressing optimism, a genuine concern for and love of America and its Citizens.

While on the outside , Trump remains the bombastic American Businessman and Citizen Statesman that average Americans grew to love during the campaign, on the inside, he is a thoughtful compassionate leader who cares very deeply about the American people and those who are protecting us from our enemies, giving up their very lives in order to secure our American Freedom.

Unlike Obama, Trump does not view our Brightest and Best as Lab Rats to be used in Social Experimentation. He views them as our sons and daughter to be respected, honored, cherished, and solemnly and respectfully honored and remembered when they give their lives for a flag which some think nothing of defiling.

President Trump was at his best last night, presenting American Heroes and one very special South Korean Hero, who escaped from the North and who is now fighting to free his people from the ruthless dictatorship of Kim Jong Un.

As I was watching our 45th President, Donald J. Trump (man, that feels good to write!), deliver his First State of the Union Address, several things struck me.

He referenced the God of Abraham, Our Creator, several times, even reminded those in the Chamber with him “In God We Trust”.

Unlike Obama, he did not make the speech all about him.

He made a point of saying that when we are together as a nation, we can do ANYTHING.

He spoke in glowing positive terms about America and its people.

He acknowledged those who protect us: The Men and Women in Blue and our Brightest and best.

He pledged to end the VISA Lottery System and Chain Migration in order to keep America safe from those who wish us harm.

He reminded those in the Chamber that “Americans are Dreamers, too”.

He told us average “forgotten” Americans that we will be able to keep more of our paychecks and THAT WE MATTER.

He mentioned that unemployment is down and that Black and Hispanic Unemployment are at record lows.

He emphatically stated that because of the sacrifices made for us by those who have died while protecting our freedom, we stand and put our hand over our hearts for the National Anthem.

And while President Trump was making this stirring speech, where were the Democrats?

Sitting on their hands and appearing as if their dog had been run over by a Steamroller.

Last night proved two things:

Americans made the right choice on November 8, 2016.

And, the Democratic Party stands for nothing…except hating President Donald J. Trump and Traditional American Values

…including Patriotism.

Until He Comes,
