Girlfriend, It Gets Reals: #POTUS #Trump #Jointsession #TrumpAddress #JointAddress



The essentials: This isn’t an Obama “joint” address with mind altering smoke filling the room and the stink hitting high heaven.

It’s President Donald J. Trump. At 9:00 p.m. ET. Biggest speech evah!

The “reals”: President Donald J. Trump will have a strong enemy in his speech before the Congress of the United States. The strong enemy of President Trump is the GOP establishment.

The laughs: The Obama Dimocrats are a spent force. Aside from theatrics, they won’t matter. They don’t matter. They are in “la la land” without the electoral statuette – blaming the Russians for hacking the vote.

Reports are that girly Dims will wear white to pretend they are latter day suffragettes not the mudded whores they are. Report that Maxine Waters will continue her refusal to attend a President Trump event. Reports that the Obama Dims won’t shake President Trump’s hands – mysophobic Trump relieved. Reports that the Obama Dims will have Muslims and illegal immigrants (presumably from Mexico) next to them watching President Trump.

The Trump: Mess with the mighty bull, you get the pointy horns:

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced late Monday the six guests who will join them at a joint session of Congress on Tuesday evening.

Among the handful of attendees Maureen McCarthy Scalia, the widow of the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia.

Three others guests lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens. Jamiel Shaw Sr. lost his teenage son in 2008. Jessica Davis and Susan Oliver both lost their husbands, Detective Michael Davis and Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver, in a shootout with an illegal alien in 2014. Both were police officers in California. Congress has proposed a bill in their name that would increase cooperation between federal and local law enforcement.

Horn 1 reminds the Obama Dims that President Trump will win every nomination fight for every appointment he makes to the Supreme Court.

Horn 2 reminds the Obama Dims and the illegal aliens in the audience that President Trump will fight their hideous demands to legalize the illegal with even more powerful testimony from Americans of all colors who have lost loved lives to the murderous illegal immigrants who killed.

Sweet President Trump will also speak from his heart:

Megan Crowley was diagnosed with Pompe Disease at one year old and only expected to live a few years. Her father founded Novazyme Pharmaceuticals to help find a cure. Megan is now 20 years old and attends Notre Dame.

The final guest is Denisha Merriweather, who became the first member of her family to graduate from high school and college. She completed the Esprit de Corps Center for Learning through the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program.

It’s horns and heart from President Donald J. Trump.

What will President Trump do, say, specifically? No need for analysis before President Trump does it and says it. Tonight, in the biggest speech thus far of his presidency, President Trump gets real. It’s not candidate Trump. It’s not President Elect Trump. It’s not President Trump in the Oval Office. It’s President Donald J. Trump before the nation and before the Congress.

President Trump, despite all the hate from Big Media and the political establishments of both parties, Academia, and most of the power centers of institutional power continues to hold the support of the American people. A Morning Consult poll from Politico today:

Voters seem to agree, regardless of how they feel about Trump’s priorities. A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that 56 percent of 2,000 registered voters polled Feb. 24 through Feb. 26 say that Trump is staying true to his 2016 campaign message, and 66 percent say Trump has accomplished what was expected of him — or more. Overall, half of voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 45 percent disapprove. [snip]

An overwhelming majority of Trump’s supporters, and even many of his critics, see a president who is delivering on his promises.

2018 will soon be here. Obama Dims will be powerfully crushed if anything like these numbers hold – before President Trump even begins to get his legislative agenda passed.

President Trump is in the trump seat. If the Obama Dims are rude and attack, President Trump can be either sweet or sour and beat the Obama Dims at their own game. If the Obama Dims want a fight, President Trump has the horns, the balls, and the fists. If the Obama Dims want to cooperate, President Trump will pour out the syrup of Trump branded sweetness and smother these pancakes. Bottom line essential? President Trump wins.

Americans want the loser Obama Dims to cooperate with the President and help President Trump Make America Great Again.

  1. Do the Dims really want a fight with President Trump tonight and in subsequent days on illegal immigration? President Trump will hit them with this:

    Laura Wilkerson, a Texan whose son Josh was murdered by an illegal alien who would have qualified for amnesty under a DREAM Act-like law, emotionally broke down and cried during her speech here at Jefferson Park in downtown Richmond on Monday night at the first stop of the “Stop Amnesty Tour.”

    “My name is Laura Wilkerson,” she said. “My husband George and I live just outside Houston, Texas. We’ve been married 25 years and we’ve raised three children. Our youngest son, Joshua, was brutally murdered on Nov. 16, 2010, by a kid who was a classmate of him. We found out later he was from Belize, brought here illegally by his parents when he was about 10 years old. I’m just going to tell you the story. It’s sad story. If I cry, don’t let it bug you. It’s part of my daily routine at this point. I hope that it makes you mad, because I think Josh deserved to live if only because he was an American citizen.” [snip]

    “It was a typical Tuesday,” she said. “Joshua was in his senior year of high school and he was 18 years old. It was November and he would have graduated in May. He came in in the morning when I was getting ready for work and said ‘bye, Mom. I’m leaving to go to school.’ I said, ‘okay, I love you Josh. I’ll be home early today. I’ll be home around 1 o’clock.’ He said ‘I love you too, Mom.’ I said, ‘see ya.’ I stood there at the glass door and watched him get in his truck and he got to the end of the street and turn. I shut the door and went on and proceeded to get ready for work, never knowing it would be the last time I see him.”

    Around 1:30 p.m., after she had not heard from Josh, she said “mother’s instinct” or perhaps God, made her think something was not right. “Josh was the kind of kid that he’d never been in trouble over a traffic ticket,” she said. “He always let me know where he was. I texted him and said ‘just let me know you’re okay.’”

    After Josh did not respond to that text message, Mrs. Wilkerson said she “became frantic.”

    “I just started to drive around and look,” she said, fighting off tears by this point in her speech. “I drove by a couple of his friends’ houses that I thought maybe he would go to and by the gym that he went to. Nothing. I looked around for about an hour or two and by the police station, no wrecks, no one in the hospital. Then I happened to look to the left and I saw his truck parked in a parking lot, a strip center by a dumpster. I stopped at it and looked at it. I could tell something was wrong; it had been driven through a field. There were seeds and grass, which was out of the ordinary. So, I called my husband to come. He came, and we called the police. They came, and in just a few minutes they asked me over and they slid open the dumpster next to the truck.”

    Through sobs, Mrs. Wilkerson said the police then said to her: “Mom, are these his things?”

    “Yeah,” she responded, as police pulled Josh’s shoes, backpack and other belongings out of the dumpster his truck was parked next to.

    “I knew then he was dead, not coming home,” Mrs. Wilkerson said. “I just didn’t know how or why. None of it made sense to me. At any rate, we were finally told to go home from that parking lot at 11 at night. So we went home, just shocked and stunned, not knowing anything.”

    Around 3 a.m., she said, police came back to see her and her husband at their home and informed them they had a suspect in custody. Police told them to be back at that parking lot at 6 a.m. because Texas Equusearch, a mounted search, recovery and rescue team in the state, was going to look for Josh. “We think he’s hurt and we think he needs help,” she said the police told her. “And we need to find him.”

    “Now, when you hear the words, none of it makes sense,” she said. “It doesn’t make sense. The word ‘suspect’? You hear that every day, I thought. Nothing makes sense to me. At any rate we went to the parking lot the next day and Texas Equusearch looked for Josh with ATVs, boats, sonar, horses. They walked a grid. The community just poured out for Josh. It was incredible. It was just unbelievable. We stayed in that parking lot until dark and then we went home.”

    About 20 minutes later, police visited their home again. “The detectives, they came in and I just looked at them,” Mrs. Wilkerson said. “I said, ‘you found him.’ They said ‘yes.’ I said, ‘what did he look like?’ He said ‘I didn’t see him.’ I should have known that he did, but he didn’t want to tell me about it.”

    Wilkerson said she will always remember the look on the detective’s face when he told her the suspect in custody, Hermilio Moralez, was not in America legally.

    “I’ll never forget looking in that detective’s eyes as he was telling me, ‘yeah this kid is in the country illegally,’” Mrs. Wilkerson told the crowd in Richmond. “I said ‘where are his parents?’ He said, ‘we can’t ask him.’ He couldn’t ask them because it was a sanctuary city at that time. I thought, ‘really? You could pull me over and ask me any question under the sun, legally, but you can’t ask that?’ It just made no sense to me. It stuck in my head forever.”

    After two years of waiting for a trial, the Wilkersons finally got more answers and saw Moralez convicted in January of this year. At the trial, she said, “the horror was just incredible.”

    “We found out later that what he [Hermilio Moralez] did was he asked Josh for a ride home from school and Josh said, ‘sure,’” Mrs. Wilkerson said. “I think he’d given him a ride home two or three times before. He took him actually to his parents’ house. For some reason, we found out later why, what he did to Josh was he hit him in the nose, and this is what the kid tells from the stand, he hit him in the nose so hard that it would blind him so that he couldn’t fight back. Then he kicked him so hard in the stomach. Josh was about this big around and he weighed about 100 pounds in the body bag. He kicked him so hard in the stomach that his liver sliced in two and his spine sliced in two. He ruptured his spleen. He took a closet rod and beat Josh over the head so hard with it that it broke in four pieces. He strangled him, then let him go. Strangled him, let him go. Per the medical examiner, it was just torturous. After he murdered him, as he said, when Josh quit having bloody bubbles come out of his nose, he knew he was gone, he tied him up like an animal with about 13 ropes from his the back of his neck to the back of his hands, to the back of his feet. He covered his head with his school shirt. Then he put him in the back of my son’s truck and he drove around and he took two dollars out of Josh’s wallet and he stopped and bought gas. Then he took him to a field and he took his wallet and school ID out and just placed it by the body. Then he doused him with gas and set him on fire. [snip]

    What we saw in the beginning of the trial, in the opening, was the police going out to this itty bitty trail and there you saw, when they finally got to Josh, you finally saw him in the fetal position, barefooted, charred, bound up. The policeman said he looked like a doll. He didn’t even look real. He looked so tiny. Then after that in the trial the next picture was of his face after they removed his shirt. It was horribly disfigured by the closet rod. So one of the last pictures I saw of Josh was one where his face is just — one of his eyebrows is here, and the other is very low. It’s something you don’t want to be reminded of.”

    Mrs. Wilkerson said that during the trial, Moralez “was proud on the stand.”

    “He got up there and said he was trained to kill and that Josh had kicked his dog and that his killing skills took over,” she said. “From the stand, his said his culture was very different than ours. And he really was excited about what he had done. He never once showed any amount of remorse or sorrow for what he did to Josh.”

    She told those at the rally that, “I assure you this was my 9-11. This was my terrorist attack.”

    “It was as if a bomb went off in my family,” she said. “And we will forever be picking the pieces up. Forever. We’ll never be the same. Ever. To have to stand up here and think about this Gang of Eight and it makes no sense to me. Why aren’t they mad that they allowed someone to just walk across a border and kill an American citizen? I want you to be mad about it more than I want you to be sad for me.”

    Wilkerson said she had to call her oldest son home from serving the U.S. Air Force so he could learn what happened.

    “It’s ironic that I had to call the American Red Cross to get a hold of my oldest son Adam, who is serving in the United States Air Force defending this country, to bring him home for two weeks to bury his little brother,” she said. “No one in this country was defending him or us because the borders are wide open. It’s not just about missing Josh. The fallout from this is just forever for my family. I’ve seen this. We’re broken. That’s why you don’t see a lot of families testifying. It takes everything you can do to get up and still earn a living and to breathe and to start over. So you don’t see a lot of people who can do it. It’s tough. It will just never, ever be the same. I want people to be mad. I want people to be mad you can just come across this border.”

  2. Today is Mardi Gras, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday. It’s the last day of February. March beckons:

    March is the biggest month for GOP in a decade

    March is shaping up to be the most important month for the Republican Party in more than a decade

    For the first time since 2006, the GOP controls the White House and Congress. [snip]

    The wish list begins with passing a budget, reforming the tax code and repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

    All three issues are divisive, making the next six weeks key.

    The House will be in session for five of them, while the Senate is scheduled only to take a short two-day break in March.

    By the end of that intense run, it will be clear that President Trump’s agenda is moving along swiftly — or stuck in its tracks.

    “The month of March is not a ‘do-or-die’ moment, but it is the next closest thing,” says GOP strategist Ford O’Connell. “For the last eight years, Republicans operated as the chest-thumping opposition party, and now is their best chance to show the American people they can in fact govern on some very critical issues.” [snip]

    Replacing ObamaCare is riddled with tough questions on Medicaid, the individual mandate and taxes. On the budget, conservatives want to attack the debt, but Trump has vowed not to make major changes to Medicare and Social Security.

    During his speech, lawmakers will also be listening for cues on the wall Trump has promised to build on the Mexican border and on an infrastructure plan reportedly as large as $1 trillion. Those two proposals make conservatives worried about budget deficits nervous.

    The first 100 days of a presidency are closely analyzed for success or failure, but both Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have set a 200-day mark, a nod to how challenging it will be to move their agenda.

    Key conservatives, including Matt Drudge of The Drudge Report, Sean Hannity of Fox News and radio talk show host Mark Levin, are already getting restless with the lack of action.

    Anne Coulter, a prominent Trump backer, recently wrote, “This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They’re utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump.”

    If Republicans fail to deliver, Trump may follow conservative pundits in directing fire at GOP legislative leaders.

    Some lawmakers have acknowledged the slow start.

    During an appearance last week on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the “Congress is stumbling” and Republicans “are tied up in knots.” [snip]

    Ryan has pushed back at suggestions the Congress is flailing. During a recent interview with Hannity, he said Republicans are “on track” and predicted this Congress will be the most productive “in our lifetimes.”

    If the GOP-controlled Congress can revamp the entire tax code for the first time in 30 years, build a wall, replace ObamaCare, boost the economy and pass a broad transportation bill, Ryan will be right. But all of those items are heavy lifts.

    The White House knows it won’t be easy.

    During an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, senior White House adviser Stephen Bannon said, “Every day is going to be a fight.

    Bannon was specifically referencing the media, but he could have been talking about the entire Washington establishment, which he loathes.

    The establishment itself seems ready for a war, making it appropriate that March is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.

    Democrats have already signaled they will send a clear opposition message to Trump in relation to his speech on Tuesday.

    The minority party has sought to delay Trump’s Cabinet picks and sees little reason to cooperate on legislative issues given grassroots anger on the left.

    The media is also spoiling for a fight, something Trump and his staff appear ready for. [snip]

    In the Senate, they can only afford to lose two GOP votes to repeal ObamaCare using budget reconciliation rules. Replacing the Affordable Care Act will require at least eight Democratic votes.

    There is little political incentive for the Democratic Party, which is now energized by its liberal base, to help Trump. Earlier this month, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told The Washington Post that Democrats could win back the Senate if Trump’s approval rating is at 35 percent next year.

    If Trump’s at 55 percent, we could lose the whole ball of wax,” he said.”

  3. Well that’s a horrifying story and Houston is a cesspool. Just yesterday there was a race , or gang members trying to take each other out, who knows, on the freeway and one of the cars hit an innocent car. In the back of the car was an eight year old little girl who had been sleeping.
    A women from one of the cars got out and started shooting the poor women who’s car had been hit and when she went to get her daughter from the back seat, she was dead.
    Of course there was no description of the woman shooter, so you know she wasn’t white, the little girl was Black and an innocent angel.
    I looked today to see if they had caught the woman, they asked for help but again gave no identification other than a “woman”, and not only didn’t I see that she has not been caught, but there is article after article after article of children and women being murdered in that cesspool.
    I have to drive through Houston to see my daughter, I hate it.
    I freaking hate guns

  4. God bless these families that have suffered so much, the loss of their children, only to suffer the atrocity of a government that has turned their backs on them for 30 shillings of silver.
    What a fu$ked up world this is.

    God be with you President Trump

  5. Melania Trump gorgeous in black sequined jacket/skirt ensemble with a broad belt. Ivanka looks lovely in an slightly off one shoulder pink dress. Jared looks cute too. Paul Ryan in a blue tie that matches his eyes.

  6. Praise the Lord JTJames!!! Make Sleeves Great Again.

    Thank you Melania Trump for wearing age appropriate, weight appropriate, weather appropriate, First Lady appropriate, clothes. The belt works on Melania too because she has a slim waist and a small shapely bottom.

    Contrast to Moose who wore sleeveless costumes more appropriate on young cocktail waitresses in Summer, even in Winter. Moose also wore Pep-Boys accessories which highlighted her massive waist and huge bottom.

    Already this is a great night for America because of First LADY Melania Trump.

  7. Smart of President Trump to start with a salute to Black History Month and a denunciation of anti-Semetic attacks as he calls for a better future.

    President Trump says he speaks from his heart. A “new national pride”. “A renewal of the American spirit.” “America is once again ready to lead.”

  8. President Trump declares America has protected the borders of other countries and left our borders open. President Trump also declares trillions of dollars have been wasted.

    Then “the chorus became an earthquake” of America First! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! declares President Trump.

    Industry brought back. Veterans taken care of. Infrastructure rebuilt. Stop the drum epidemic. Rebirth of our inner cities. KEEP OUR PROMISES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

  9. President Trump said “Drain the Swamp” and something happened. Sounded like an Obama Dim got upset about the drained swamp. But we’re not sure what happened.

  10. I unfortunately got a CBS, MSNBC link and all they were talking about was how we just had 8 wonderful years without one top Administration figure shame the country and how this Administration is drowning in questionable, possible illegal behavior

    Oh geez, drain the fu&king swamp is right
    Pretty sure Chuck Todd is looking to go down on his knees for obama at this very moment.

  11. I think they need to send a bunch of orthopedists pronto to this speech. There seems to be something wrong with the dems’ legs….

  12. Justice Breyer has his hands over his mouth, Sotomayor looks stunned, Kagan has a grimace of disgust on her face.

    President Trump follows those looks with a declaration he will appoint a Justice to the Supreme Court who follows the law. Slap, slap, slap.

    Don’t mess with the bull, you get the horns!

  13. President Trump cites Abraham Lincoln on tariffs, and asks for “fair trade”. Paul Ryan does not look happy.

    President Trump physically looks great in a new appearing suit and white shirt with cufflinks. He seems to be trimmer. Weight loss?

    Cites Eisenhower to ask for “national rebuilding” and infrastructure spending.

  14. The women in white look like they are on a field trip from Belview Psychiatric Hospital.

    Would have even been funnier if the Dem men wore white

    Odd choice of color really, color of surrender

  15. Astounding speech. Well delivered. Mostly well written and thematically brilliant.

    The speech was substantive and emotional. “Home run” does not describe it.

    It was also brutally strong while yet “unifying”. The Obama Dims must be soiling themselves more than usual.

    “We will soon begin construction of a great great wall along our Southern border.”

    China’s wall will henceforth be known as the “pretty good wall”.

  17. It doesn’t matter, the Media will tell us it was hitleresque, it reeked of racism and it looked like Trump tried to grab Pelosies pu$$y on the way out.

  18. Sooo Ellison and Debbie wassernutjob… she’s Jewish for Gods sakes and sitting next to a man that would probably in the least put her in a burka and more likely kill her because SHES JEWISH FOR GODS SAKE!!!

  19. debbie wasserman schultz is a disgrace….just read the article by Dershowitz on Ellison and any Jew who supports him is , well, a democrat.

  20. Agree gonzotx. Had dinner with a fellow conservative Jew and we both are very sad to conclude that most American Jews have very little interest in Israel and will stay democratic and even actively work against Israel.

  21. The Professor of Legal Insurrection has been a Never-Trumper. Tonight?:

    I’ll leave the details and the policy prescriptions to others. Here’s my quick reaction.

    Donald Trump’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress tonight was enormously impressive and potentially game changing.

    In big terms, he was both presidential and pugnacious. He started by talking about more work to be done on civil rights, and condemned recent acts of anti-Semitism and hate. While it will not satisfy those who hate him, it set a tone and deflated the attacks on the speech you know already had been written. Bringing victims of crime by illegal immigrants and introducing them was powerful. And introducing the widow of fallen Navy Seal Ryan Owens was the most emotional moment I’ve ever seen in such a speech

    There were many other points made, some of which would appeal to Democrats, but overall he stuck to what he promised during the campaign.

    The word that keeps coming back to me is “defanged.”

    Given the size of the audience, Trump defanged the deranged, irrational concept of “resistence.” That’s not to say Democrats won’t keep obstructing, but after this speech they do so at great risk.

  22. btw…that USA over Party @ michaelbeatty3 that you cited has a good twitter feed

    i don’t know how to bring them here but did you see the one from the dumb Dim Dan Grilo telling “Owen’s wife that she got used and that she is clapping like an idiot’

    the Dims really are dead…and died with no heart…no heart for Americans

  23. Bridge over troubled waters… it was the song we played at my mothers funeral
    I love that song, brings tears to my eyes, always did

  24. just thinking after listening to some of these pundits talk around in circles to try to find things to criticize Donald’s speech…Borgia, King, Maddow, etc

    can anyone, in their wildest thoughts, imagine if O…or HILLARY… had given this same speech…the dims would have been going wild in the well, cheering hysterically…and the pundits would be falling all over themselves in glee

    instead you get Elizabeth Warren looking at Gillibrand so confused as to if she is supposed to clap for something she is for or not

    and Pelosi looking like her botox is beginning to stutter on its own on her face…

    the dims really, really are a mess…

  25. S, “the dims really, really are a mess”. They don’t know what is about to hit them because before the speech, as they did all through election year, they really believed that President Trump is unpopular. Check this out from the second comment posted:

    Earlier this month, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told The Washington Post that Democrats could win back the Senate if Trump’s approval rating is at 35 percent next year.

    If Trump’s at 55 percent, we could lose the whole ball of wax,” he said.”

    The ball of wax has rolled away.

  26. I thought the KY guy was funny. He listed all the things dems would do – and they were all things that Trump is doing lol

  27. Oh Jesus, Madame Sec of Transportation is talking private sector to fiancé roads and then charge tolls…no freaking way, sorry, an entire nation of toll roads is NOT what Americans have been paying 40 to 50% of their paychecks for

    I am personally going to be contacting the WH, Senators, Congress about this.
    Can you imagine what it would cost to drive across America?

    Democrats are sore losers and very disrespectful.

    They are irrelevant. Their dream of representing the interests of the “world” over those of US citizens just died. Well not fully dead yet as it crawled off for a crack to hide in but very, very sick. The party of George Soros went tits up tonight. And not just in the US. It is dead in Europe and the Middle East too. Asia never believed that stupid shit but liked the rigged trade deals because they are not dummies.

    Their reaction is about how they misread the election. They “thought” Hillary would be replacing them with younger crazier lawyers. They “thought” wrong. Ginsberg in her twilight must be especially unhappy for screwing up so badly and hanging on like a dog tick. Some of them probably were hoping to retire for a few years before the great shuffle but now they will die in harness. Tough shit stupids.

    S, look at this from NeverTrump Steve Schmidt at MSNBC:

    The squirrels mentioned by this jamoke such as the Castro brothers of La Raza have no future either. All of them little Obama clones who have no brains, substance, or presence. Climbers on the open border train which got buried tonight. Siding with drug cartels, Soros, and jihadis is no way to get ahead in politics. This isn’t Sweden. Obama officially got the cat litter scratched over top of him.

  31. debbie wasserman schultz is a prime example of what is required to be a globalist… selling out your own. That is what is required to join their club, delivering your demographic to be sacrificed to their “greater good”. It is part of the process of dehumanization.

    After all, that is how Sorfeld got his start… with the Nazi.


  32. Trump will only pick up momentum with the speech. Even the dumbest and most corrupt must realize they will be crushed in 2018 is they continue indiscriminant opposition.

    The Trumpnado continues as the storm picks up speed.

    I thought the KY guy was funny. He listed all the things dems would do – and they were all things that Trump is doing lol

    No one, NO ONE watched the token hick. Everyone who watched got up to go to the bathroom or get a bite to eat. The media watched because they had to do so. Anyway that horse left the barn for the Democrats in 2008. I watched Sen Manchin who looked like he was going to cry then hug President Trump’s leg. I think he will be changing party soon.

    A planted globalist technocrat lawyer. Sounds right. At this point they are just trying to slow Trump down. If true may he have many happy years in prison.

  35. @lorac
    You know that they gave him the gig because they felt that his accent and the cozy cafe would make middle America feel right at home. Another epic fail.

  36. Not to name call…but
    Ready various comments and one poster came up with…

    The Dummycrats…

    That describes them…just look at Michael Moore frothing at the mouth trying to insult Prez Trump
    Instead he insults Owen’s widow and the military

    the President is in a position to help people the dims say they represent but moore, pelosi, schultz, schumer, and all
    the other leftist loudmouths would rather just “resist”…

    And be an obstacle to progress and do nothing
    The dims are worthless

  37. Obama officially got the cat litter scratched over top of him.

    it’s funny, and also gives an apt visual lol

  38. That is what is required to join their club, delivering your demographic to be sacrificed to their “greater good”. It is part of the process of dehumanization.

    After all, that is how Sorfeld got his start… with the Nazi.

    Good point, Lu.

  39. Transcript:

    Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States, and Citizens of America:

    Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our Nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains. Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a Nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.

    Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice –- in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present.

    That torch is now in our hands. And we will use it to light up the world. I am heretonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart.

    A new chapter of American Greatness is now beginning.

    A new national pride is sweeping across our Nation.

    And a new surge of optimism is placing impossible dreams firmly within our grasp.

    What we are witnessing today is the Renewal of the American Spirit.

    Our allies will find that America is once again ready to lead.

    All the nations of the world — friend or foe — will find that America is strong, America is proud, and America is free.

    In 9 years, the United States will celebrate the 250th anniversary of our founding — 250 years since the day we declared our Independence.

    It will be one of the great milestones in the history of the world.

    But what will America look like as we reach our 250th year? What kind of country will we leave for our children?

    I will not allow the mistakes of recent decades past to define the course of our future.

    For too long, we’ve watched our middle class shrink as we’ve exported our jobs and wealth to foreign countries.

    We’ve financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit — and so many other places throughout our land.

    We’ve defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross — and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate.

    And we’ve spent trillions of dollars overseas, while our infrastructure at home has so badly crumbled.

    Then, in 2016, the earth shifted beneath our feet. The rebellion started as a quiet protest, spoken by families of all colors and creeds -– families who just wanted a fair shot for their children, and a fair hearing for their concerns.

    But then the quiet voices became a loud chorus — as thousands of citizens now spoke out together, from cities small and large, all across our country.

    Finally, the chorus became an earthquake – and the people turned out by the tens of millions, and they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first … because only then, can we truly MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

    Dying industries will come roaring back to life. Heroic veterans will get the care they so desperately need.

    Our military will be given the resources its brave warriors so richly deserve.

    Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our beautiful land.

    Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately, stop.

    And our neglected inner cities will see a rebirth of hope, safety, and opportunity.

    Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people.

    It’s been a little over a month since my inauguration, and I want to take this moment to update the Nation on the progress I’ve made in keeping those promises.

    Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart, and many others, have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs.

    The stock market has gained almost three trillion dollars in value since the election on November 8th, a record. We’ve saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of the fantastic new F-35 jet fighter, and will be saving billions more dollars on contracts all across our Government. We have placed a hiring freeze on non-military and non-essential Federal workers.

    We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a 5 year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials –- and a lifetime ban on becoming lobbyists for a foreign government.

    We have undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce job‑crushing regulations, creating a deregulation task force inside of every Government agency; imposing a new rule which mandates that for every 1 new regulation, 2 old regulations must be eliminated; and stopping a regulation that threatens the future and livelihoods of our great coal miners.

    We have cleared the way for the construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines — thereby creating tens of thousands of jobs — and I’ve issued a new directive that new American pipelines be made with American steel.

    We have withdrawn the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    With the help of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, we have formed a Council with our neighbors in Canada to help ensure that women entrepreneurs have access to the networks, markets and capital they need to start a business and live out their financial dreams.

    To protect our citizens, I have directed the Department of Justice to form a Task Force on Reducing Violent Crime.

    I have further ordered the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice, along with the Department of State and the Director of National Intelligence, to coordinate an aggressive strategy to dismantle the criminal cartels that have spread across our Nation.

    We will stop the drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth — and we will expand treatment for those who have become so badly addicted.

    At the same time, my Administration has answered the pleas of the American people for immigration enforcement and border security. By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. We want all Americans to succeed –- but that can’t happen in an environment of lawless chaos. We must restore integrity and the rule of law to our borders.

    For that reason, we will soon begin the construction of a great wall along our southern border. It will be started ahead of schedule and, when finished, it will be a very effective weapon against drugs and crime.

    As we speak, we are removing gang members, drug dealers and criminals that threaten our communities and prey on our citizens. Bad ones are going out as I speak tonight and as I have promised.

    To any in Congress who do not believe we should enforce our laws, I would ask you this question: what would you say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or a loved one, because America refused to uphold its laws and defend its borders?

    Our obligation is to serve, protect, and defend the citizens of the United States. We are also taking strong measures to protect our Nation from Radical Islamic Terrorism.

    According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted for terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country. We have seen the attacks at home -– from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and yes, even the World Trade Center.

    We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany and all over the world.

    It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values.

    We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America — we cannot allow our Nation to become a sanctuary for extremists.

    That is why my Administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our Nation safe — and to keep out those who would do us harm.

    As promised, I directed the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS — a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs. We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.

    I have also imposed new sanctions on entities and individuals who support Iran’s ballistic missile program, and reaffirmed our unbreakable alliance with the State of Israel.

    Finally, I have kept my promise to appoint a Justice to the United States Supreme Court — from my list of 20 judges — who will defend our Constitution. I am honored to have Maureen Scalia with us in the gallery tonight. Her late, great husband, Antonin Scalia, will forever be a symbol of American justice. To fill his seat, we have chosen Judge Neil Gorsuch, a man of incredible skill, and deep devotion to the law. He was confirmed unanimously to the Court of Appeals, and I am asking the Senate to swiftly approve his nomination.

    Tonight, as I outline the next steps we must take as a country, we must honestly acknowledge the circumstances we inherited.

    Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.

    Over 43 million people are now living in poverty, and over 43 million Americans are on food stamps.

    More than 1 in 5 people in their prime working years are not working.

    We have the worst financial recovery in 65 years.

    In the last 8 years, the past Administration has put on more new debt than nearly all other Presidents combined.

    We’ve lost more than one-fourth of our manufacturing jobs since NAFTA was approved, and we’ve lost 60,000 factories since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

    Our trade deficit in goods with the world last year was nearly $800 billion dollars.

    And overseas, we have inherited a series of tragic foreign policy disasters.

    Solving these, and so many other pressing problems, will require us to work past the differences of party. It will require us to tap into the American spirit that has overcome every challenge throughout our long and storied history.

    But to accomplish our goals at home and abroad, we must restart the engine of the American economy — making it easier for companies to do business in the United States, and much harder for companies to leave.

    Right now, American companies are taxed at one of the highest rates anywhere in the world.

    My economic team is developing historic tax reform that will reduce the tax rate on our companies so they can compete and thrive anywhere and with anyone. At the same time, we will provide massive tax relief for the middle class.

    We must create a level playing field for American companies and workers.

    Currently, when we ship products out of America, many other countries make us pay very high tariffs and taxes — but when foreign companies ship their products into America, we charge them almost nothing.

    I just met with officials and workers from a great American company, Harley-Davidson. In fact, they proudly displayed five of their magnificent motorcycles, made in the USA, on the front lawn of the White House.

    At our meeting, I asked them, how are you doing, how is business? They said that it’s good. I asked them further how they are doing with other countries, mainly international sales. They told me — without even complaining because they have been mistreated for so long that they have become used to it — that it is very hard to do business with other countries because they tax our goods at such a high rate. They said that in one case another country taxed their motorcycles at 100 percent.

    They weren’t even asking for change. But I am.

    I believe strongly in free trade but it also has to be FAIR TRADE.

    The first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, warned that the “abandonment of the protective policy by the American Government [will] produce want and ruin among our people.”

    Lincoln was right — and it is time we heeded his words. I am not going to let America and its great companies and workers, be taken advantage of anymore.

    I am going to bring back millions of jobs. Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.

    Nations around the world, like Canada, Australia and many others –- have a merit-based immigration system. It is a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially. Yet, in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon. According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America’s taxpayers many billions of dollars a year.

    Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits: it will save countless dollars, raise workers’ wages, and help struggling families –- including immigrant families –- enter the middle class.

    I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals: to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation’s security, and to restore respect for our laws.

    If we are guided by the well-being of American citizens then I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.

    Another Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, initiated the last truly great national infrastructure program –- the building of the interstate highway system. The time has come for a new program of national rebuilding.

    America has spent approximately six trillion dollars in the Middle East, all this while our infrastructure at home is crumbling. With this six trillion dollars we could have rebuilt our country –- twice. And maybe even three times if we had people who had the ability to negotiate.

    To launch our national rebuilding, I will be asking the Congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in the infrastructure of the United States — financed through both public and private capital –- creating millions of new jobs.

    This effort will be guided by two core principles: Buy American, and Hire American.

    Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better Healthcare.

    Mandating every American to buy government-approved health insurance was never the right solution for America. The way to make health insurance available to everyone is to lower the cost of health insurance, and that is what we will do.

    Obamacare premiums nationwide have increased by double and triple digits. As an example, Arizona went up 116 percent last year alone. Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky just said Obamacare is failing in his State — it is unsustainable and collapsing.

    One third of counties have only one insurer on the exchanges –- leaving many Americans with no choice at all.

    Remember when you were told that you could keep your doctor, and keep your plan?

    We now know that all of those promises have been broken.

    Obamacare is collapsing –- and we must act decisively to protect all Americans. Action is not a choice –- it is a necessity.

    So I am calling on all Democrats and Republicans in the Congress to work with us to save Americans from this imploding Obamacare disaster.

    Here are the principles that should guide the Congress as we move to create a better healthcare system for all Americans:

    First, we should ensure that Americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage, and that we have a stable transition for Americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges.

    Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage, through the use of tax credits and expanded Health Savings Accounts –- but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by the Government.

    Thirdly, we should give our great State Governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out.

    Fourthly, we should implement legal reforms that protect patients and doctors from unnecessary costs that drive up the price of insurance – and work to bring down the artificially high price of drugs and bring them down immediately.

    Finally, the time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across State lines –- creating a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring cost way down and provide far better care.

    Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope.

    Our citizens deserve this, and so much more –- so why not join forces to finally get it done? On this and so many other things, Democrats and Republicans should get together and unite for the good of our country, and for the good of the American people.

    My administration wants to work with members in both parties to make childcare accessible and affordable, to help ensure new parents have paid family leave, to invest in women’s health, and to promote clean air and clear water, and to rebuild our military and our infrastructure.

    True love for our people requires us to find common ground, to advance the common good, and to cooperate on behalf of every American child who deserves a brighter future.

    An incredible young woman is with us this evening who should serve as an inspiration to us all.

    Today is Rare Disease day, and joining us in the gallery is a Rare Disease Survivor, Megan Crowley. Megan was diagnosed with Pompe Disease, a rare and serious illness, when she was 15 months old. She was not expected to live past 5.

    On receiving this news, Megan’s dad, John, fought with everything he had to save the life of his precious child. He founded a company to look for a cure, and helped develop the drug that saved Megan’s life. Today she is 20 years old — and a sophomore at Notre Dame.

    Megan’s story is about the unbounded power of a father’s love for a daughter.

    But our slow and burdensome approval process at the Food and Drug Administration keeps too many advances, like the one that saved Megan’s life, from reaching those in need.

    If we slash the restraints, not just at the FDA but across our Government, then we will be blessed with far more miracles like Megan.

    In fact, our children will grow up in a Nation of miracles.

    But to achieve this future, we must enrich the mind –- and the souls –- of every American child.

    Education is the civil rights issue of our time.

    I am calling upon Members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children. These families should be free to choose the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school that is right for them.

    Joining us tonight in the gallery is a remarkable woman, Denisha Merriweather. As a young girl, Denisha struggled in school and failed third grade twice. But then she was able to enroll in a private center for learning, with the help of a tax credit scholarship program. Today, she is the first in her family to graduate, not just from high school, but from college. Later this year she will get her masters degree in social work.

    We want all children to be able to break the cycle of poverty just like Denisha.

    But to break the cycle of poverty, we must also break the cycle of violence.

    The murder rate in 2015 experienced its largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.

    In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone –- and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher.

    This is not acceptable in our society.

    Every American child should be able to grow up in a safe community, to attend a great school, and to have access to a high-paying job.

    But to create this future, we must work with –- not against -– the men and women of law enforcement.

    We must build bridges of cooperation and trust –- not drive the wedge of disunity and division.

    Police and sheriffs are members of our community. They are friends and neighbors, they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters – and they leave behind loved ones every day who worry whether or not they’ll come home safe and sound.

    We must support the incredible men and women of law enforcement.

    And we must support the victims of crime.

    I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American Victims. The office is called VOICE –- Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.

    Joining us in the audience tonight are four very brave Americans whose government failed them.

    Their names are Jamiel Shaw, Susan Oliver, Jenna Oliver, and Jessica Davis.

    Jamiel’s 17-year-old son was viciously murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member, who had just been released from prison. Jamiel Shaw Jr. was an incredible young man, with unlimited potential who was getting ready to go to college where he would have excelled as a great quarterback. But he never got the chance. His father, who is in the audience tonight, has become a good friend of mine.

    Also with us are Susan Oliver and Jessica Davis. Their husbands –- Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis –- were slain in the line of duty in California. They were pillars of their community. These brave men were viciously gunned down by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record and two prior deportations.

    Sitting with Susan is her daughter, Jenna. Jenna: I want you to know that your father was a hero, and that tonight you have the love of an entire country supporting you and praying for you.

    To Jamiel, Jenna, Susan and Jessica: I want you to know –- we will never stop fighting for justice. Your loved ones will never be forgotten, we will always honor their memory.

    Finally, to keep America Safe we must provide the men and women of the United States military with the tools they need to prevent war and –- if they must –- to fight and to win.

    I am sending the Congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the Defense sequester, and calls for one of the largest increases in national defense spending in American history.

    My budget will also increase funding for our veterans.

    Our veterans have delivered for this Nation –- and now we must deliver for them.

    The challenges we face as a Nation are great. But our people are even greater.

    And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform.

    We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero –- battling against terrorism and securing our Nation.

    I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, “Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.” Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom –- we will never forget him.

    To those allies who wonder what kind of friend America will be, look no further than the heroes who wear our uniform.

    Our foreign policy calls for a direct, robust and meaningful engagement with the world. It is American leadership based on vital security interests that we share with our allies across the globe.

    We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism, and a Cold War that defeated communism.

    But our partners must meet their financial obligations.

    And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that.

    We expect our partners, whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific –- to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost.

    We will respect historic institutions, but we will also respect the sovereign rights of nations.

    Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people –- and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.

    We must learn from the mistakes of the past –- we have seen the war and destruction that have raged across our world.

    The only long-term solution for these humanitarian disasters is to create the conditions where displaced persons can safely return home and begin the long process of rebuilding.

    America is willing to find new friends, and to forge new partnerships, where shared interests align. We want harmony and stability, not war and conflict.

    We want peace, wherever peace can be found. America is friends today with former enemies. Some of our closest allies, decades ago, fought on the opposite side of these World Wars. This history should give us all faith in the possibilities for a better world.

    Hopefully, the 250th year for America will see a world that is more peaceful, more just and more free.

    On our 100th anniversary, in 1876, citizens from across our Nation came to Philadelphia to celebrate America’s centennial. At that celebration, the country’s builders and artists and inventors showed off their creations.

    Alexander Graham Bell displayed his telephone for the first time.

    Remington unveiled the first typewriter. An early attempt was made at electric light.

    Thomas Edison showed an automatic telegraph and an electric pen.

    Imagine the wonders our country could know in America’s 250th year.

    Think of the marvels we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people.

    Cures to illnesses that have always plagued us are not too much to hope.

    American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream.

    Millions lifted from welfare to work is not too much to expect.

    And streets where mothers are safe from fear — schools where children learn in peace — and jobs where Americans prosper and grow — are not too much to ask.

    When we have all of this, we will have made America greater than ever before. For all Americans.

    This is our vision. This is our mission.

    But we can only get there together.

    We are one people, with one destiny.

    We all bleed the same blood.

    We all salute the same flag.

    And we are all made by the same God.

    And when we fulfill this vision; when we celebrate our 250 years of glorious freedom, we will look back on tonight as when this new chapter of American Greatness began.

    The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us.

    We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts.

    The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls.

    And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action.

    From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears –-

    inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past –-

    and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.

    I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit. I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country. And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and —

    Believe in yourselves.

    Believe in your future.

    And believe, once more, in America.

    Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States.

  40. Isn’t it interesting that in some ways Donald is using a 1980’s/90’s Bill Clinton strategy of “taking” the issues from the Dims (or Dumbs, whichever you prefer) and making them his own…

    he is so outsmarting them…and making them look smaller and more immature by the day…

    …will never forget how Bill ‘stole’ many of the repubs issues (perhaps the term is ‘triangulate’) and made them his own…and ran on them…and succeeded…

    Donald is using that strategy, along with his true independent spirit…and used it in spades last night


    btw…Rosie O’Donnell and Michael Moore should team up and take their maniacal act on the road…they are both on the verge of a nervous breakdown and hallucinating…

    ‘How not to be taken seriously in politics’

    Drudge has a link to Rosie protesting in the rain last night…these people are so out of it they have no idea what an embarrassment they are to themselves…and their brand…

    both of them calling DT mentally ill, they should take a look in the mirror and get to their therapists pronto…

    so happy for DT…and us…common sense slowly coming back into focus to all, the others, to see…

  41. S

    The difference is that like me, Trumps politics haven’t really changed much over the years. I believe that these are his beliefs, not political opportunism.

  42. That Dan Grillo guy who put out the tweet about Ryan Owen’s wife clapping like an idiot and letting herself be used by Donald Trump was fired. My husband, who is a financial advisor, says the outfit he worked for sounds like a financial advisory group and they are all warned that their social media presence is monitored. They have to be very careful if they post anything on social media sites as their job can be in jeopardy.

    Here is the statement from the group that fired Grillo:

    In a statement, the company said that while the message was from his personal account, “his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values.”

    “Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty,” the statement said.

    The difference is that like me, Trumps politics haven’t really changed much over the years. I believe that these are his beliefs, not political opportunism.

    yes, optimist, I agree with you…that is what I meant about his independent spirit…and true…we can go back over 30 years and find clips of Donald saying basically the same thing he is saying today

    however, there is something delicious in Donald’s expression of his policies that leave the Dims/Dumbs flat footed and reduced to name calling and collectively wearing white pantsuits…as Donald walks away and claims their agenda without half of them even realizing it…

    (and from my POV…the moderate Bill Clinton way back when essentially took the repub agenda from them…)

  44. Yolanda…thanks for letting us know…glad to see there are still some humane companies with some integrity out there that will take action for purposeful meaness…regardless of politics

  45. I was listening to Rush on the radio when I was in my car and he said that Van Jones is getting taken to the shed by the lefties…simply because Jones made some obvious honest statements on CNN about Donald and the reaction of the left

    evidently Bill Maher, Michael Moore and other kooks are freaking out because Van Jones would dare utter anything positive or objective about DT…

    Jones is a very emotional guy…I have seen him tear and choke up and say some very reactionary things (whitewash, etc) but to be fair…every now and then he goes out on a limb…and while he may qualify his statements…he will actually utter the truth…and that is very difficult to do in the circle he travels in…the ultimate in group think and speak…

  46. Yes Van Jones said something positive last night, but he hits about 99% negative on average. Was surprised to hear any of them to be honest show any insight, let’s see how long this lasts.
    We could start a pool

  47. Kirsten Powers, who is a Democrat, and was a political pundit on Fox News not too far back put out a very positive tweet about Donald’s speech and was absolutely attacked. She may have been a Democrat on Fox but more than half the time she was fair in her assessments and wasn’t so one-sided like Juan Williams. She puts out an objective tweet about the President’s speech last night and is relentlessly insulted by enraged leftists.

    Were leftists always this way? Wolves in sheep’s clothing and I was too stupid to see how narrow-minded they actually were? Their identity politics and their hate just makes me very sad. It’s almost like they’re hypnotized or drug addled or something. My sister is one of them and it’s like invasion of the body snatchers or something. She’s just not there anymore. Someone evil has taken over her mind and body.

  48. Yolanda,

    My sister is too, and my brother in law, his whole family for the most part. You can’t talk politics and they watch MSNBC and the rest like a religion. My sister marched in the pussy prom and was so proud of herself. Her first protest.

    They have a gay nephew, but he’s like 50, and he told me before the election ” it ani’t gunna happen”, and I hadn’t even brought anything up cause those people go ape sh$t crazy, it’s been years since we had any two way conversation on politics. Well when Trump won, I was talking to his mother, didn’t bring up anything but he was just unconsolable.
    They are all big union people and the unions have been good to them.

  49. Well if they attack their own, in the end, it will be good for the Trump agenda. Let them eat their own. If the more level headed see this, they may change, I sure as heck did.
    One thing about insight, it has to be earned, can’t give it to anyone.

  50. The talking heads are saying Trump’s speech is pivotal. All I heard is what he has been saying for 40 years. I think they know THEY need to pivot and are trying to spin it off on him. The manipulations never stop.

  51. gonzotx well at least it seems your family is still talking to you. My sister isn’t but the rest of the family thinks they can just insult me and my positions and I just better keep my mouth shut and not try to defend them. The thing that makes it worse is that they’re politically stupid. They get all their information from watching MSNBC and CNN. They don’t know anything about politics and they don’t do any internet research. Trump is evil because he’s not a Democrat. My family doesn’t even know why they themselves are Democrats except that it’s been that way since they can remember. They’ll never stray and their mantra is “Republicans are for rich people only.” Thank goodness they live in Southern California and I only have limited contact with them because they frustrate the hell out of me.

  52. My sister and her husband have done very well for themselves, millionaires as are several of his brothers.
    Mostly real estate, but both my sister and he also had union jobs. He worked for the post office 5 years to get the great Federal benefits.
    Others inherited large sums and also held union jobs and lucky in real estate.

    It has to be the union jobs with that mind set of a philiosophy. Personally, im not against the idea of unions, im against the abuse of their elected officials that have stolen their money, made ridiculous demands that encouraged manufacturing to bolt and left their constituents holding the empty bag.
    Job security within reason and good benefits, what’s not to like. I hate being at the whim of managers that may like you or not, it would be nice not to have to deal with that and just do a good job. But power and money, no matter who has it usually corrupts. Not many people can handle power.
    Donald seems to handle it very well…good for him, good for us, good for America.

  53. I saw a link on Drudge that Oprah could run for President. I would not be at all surprised if this happens.

  54. There appears to be a lot of activity rounding up the pizza crowd. Why is it not reaching Big Media?

    President Donald Trump is making good on his pledge to use the “full force and weight” of the U.S. government to break up child sex trafficking rings and lock up sexual predators.

    Since Trump was sworn in, authorities have arrested more than 1,500 pedophiles in the United States.

  55. Lu – I haven’t followed the pizza thing much, but I thought it had to do with government pedophiles, not pedophiles in general…..?

  56. Yolanda, gonzo – I heard that Van Jones (whom I don’t like) is getting attacked by his buddies, as Powers is. He also said something nice about Trump’s speech.

  57. Hey you tweeters out there – you can click on a particular tweet you made, and see what the number is for “impressions” – what does that mean? Does it mean how many people have scrolled over your tweet in their tweet-list? Because that’s not even proof that they read it. So does it mean something else….?

    I would.

  59. wsj says trump needs to work with congress and jettison Bannon to be successful.

    the opposite is true.

    the reason they want him to work with congress, is because congressmen are their lackies

    the reason they want him to jettison is because Bannon sides with the middle class the elites.

    brent stephens, jerry seib are died in the wool Trump haters

    they have rooted against him every step of the way

    their advice is too tainted with self interest to be worth listening to

    Not to be cruel but she is a fat whale. She made her money being a fat chick with fat chick problems relating to other undisciplined fat women. She is still cashing in on fat with her fat commercials and fat company of which she owns a big part. She is also a nasty tempered elitist. Running much less serving as president takes enormous self discipline which she obviously doesn’t have. More wishing by lazy Democrats who don’t want the hard work of remaking the party and getting Democrats elected at state and local plus federal officeholders. The Democrats and elites are reduced to looking for magic solutions which is another sign of a soon to be dead party in dire straits. More evidence that they don’t understand that Trump has remade the Republican party.

  61. Trump’s speech was so effective that the MSM is knowingly and deliberately lying about Sessions to go back to the RUSSIA HACKED ELECTION meme.

    They are claiming Sessions lied when he testified (via Interrogatories) that he didn’t speak to the Russians, but he did.


    In January, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) asked Sessions for answers to written questions. “Several of the President-elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?” Leahy wrote.

    Sessions responded with one word: “No.”

    Justice officials said Sessions met with Kislyak on Sept. 8 in his capacity as a member of the armed services panel rather than in his role as a Trump campaign surrogate.

    “He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign – not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee,” Flores said.

    She added that Sessions last year had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, including the British, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Indian, Chinese, Canadian, Australian and German ambassadors, in addition to Kislyak.

    So, in sum: he was asked if he talked to the Russians about the election. He said no. Now, they want to use the fact that he spoke to Russians in his role as a Senator on the Armed Service Committee as evidence that he lied when he said he didn’t talk to them about the election.

  62. Audacity on steroids.

    EXCLUSIVE: Barack Obama’s close confidante Valerie Jarrett has moved into his new DC home, which is now the nerve center for their plan to mastermind the insurgency against President Trump
    Obama’s goal is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment, a family friend tells
    Jarrett has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion to work closely with the former president and Michelle Obama
    Jarrett lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and helped shape his domestic and foreign policies
    Obama cannot use his West End office, a post-presidency perk, for political purposes
    ‘He’s coming. And he’s ready to roll.’ former Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday about the former president’s reentry into the political scene

  63. The Obama third term is actively at work…in DC
    Let’s not kid ourselves. ..Valerie Jarrett is moving into their nerve center…their “new home” in DC

    They have already claimed Flynn and their current target is Jeff Sessions…the media is fully complicit and the echo chamber doing their leg work

    Oprah is being rolled out to be O’s next conduit…Hillary couldn’t pull it off…and failed

    But with BO & MO pushing & backing her as the first BLACK female President…and the O’s having two books to pave the way for their policies and “educate” the next O

    Whether OF runs or not…O #3 is already set up & in action and they are after Sessions

  64. Make that OW…part of the project of O’s 3rd term

    Isn’t it funny that Eric Holder was held in contempt by congress and nothing happened
    And here we are one month in and the opposition is cutting the legs of Sessions…and the path isbeing paved for…ready…

    ThecSpecial Prosecutor

  65. The O’s set all of this up before they left the WH

    Beware the Special Presecutor

    and the stupid repubs that will help O take DT down
    The plan is to tie up DT’s admin in investigations and diminish his power

    and be mindful…that Eric Holder is even back…and with threats…and again. ..BM is their primary echo chamber where they feed the beast with their plots

  66. When judge hobbit rogan issued an injunction against the Trump travel ban, I wondered whether the other side had slipped a ringer in to argue the government’s case. I then realized my error and figured it was the solicitor generals office which still left open the possibility that it was a holdover, since at that time neither the new solicitor general nor the new attorney general had been confirmed. According to this article, an acting solicitor general was appointed by President Trump, and he is someone very capable of arguing the governments case so at least the estimable hobbit rogan would have realized that there was a statute and a whole body of case law on point authorizing the president’s actions, in an area where the presidents powers are broad and plenary. But it turns out the acting solicitor general Noel Francisco, who was superbly equipped to handle the case, recused himself on tenuous ethical grounds and handed the case over to a career attorney who was unqualified and did a godawful job, which enabled the hobbit to issue an injunction,, when he never should have. Lets hope this acting solicitor general,whatever his qualifications might be–and they are excellent, is not appointed solicitor general because at the moment he was needed he folded like a cheap watch. This I did so because of an over abundance of caution defense does not cut the mustard. It tells you a lot about the man. All you need to know.

  67. Always remember ….we are at war. To assume otherwise is folly. But also remember how we got here. We have a smart man in charge.

    “If you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight, you’re sadly mistaken.” Steve Bannon, CPAC 2017

    24×7 attacks is thier battle plan so get used to it.

    Again and again we resort to hand wringing (myself included) when there is a perceived setback, real or more often “fake”. Thank God we have Admin (and others here) to pull us back from the edge.

  68. Likely what Obama’s going to do in that house violates neighborhood code.
    Ivanka and Jared with their children live nearby.
    Time, or admin! will focus this situation.

    Then going back to that Rezko lot deal. Barry and Mooch have a house and a lot and a third?
    When is there lot subdivision on Snob Hill?
    And other questions.
    Indeed it is Big Pink keeping me sane. And I pass it on as I’m able.
    Thank you all.

  69. I thought it was a mistake to let Flynn go, they won’t stop.
    I really wish Trump and Sessions would say, I was acting in my job as a Senator, not the campaign, there is no there here, end of story.
    And then say we are moving on and absolutly refuse to answer any more questions.

  70. Foxy,

    That slash fund money and the DOJ is monsterous.
    Looks like it has been going on for a long time. I always wondered where the money went, I had no idea, but clearly not to the victims, to places like La Raza, just makes my blood boil.

  71. Outris…

    agree…we are at war…

    however, not handwringing to call out the opposition for what they are doing…

    thank goodness we have our own warrior to fight it out (anyone else would be folding as soon as the BM started the drumbeat), but let’s be clear…

    the crowd that wants us to think they go high, when others go low…are really the lowest of the low…

    there are probably so many mini plots planted as we read this…O and the left, with the help of BM, are gunning to take DT out…first his people, one by one…

    they want to hijack the daily news and plant doubt…doubt and an aura of ‘dishonesty’…

    this is why we hear the word ‘impeachment’ in this first month of his admin…

    this is ALL calculated…and now Holder, Jarret and OWinfrey (she the beneficient cover) are part of the mix…

    and frankly, many of the repubs in Congress are not much cover or help…already people in the House (Chaffitz, etc) calling for sessions to recuse himself (weaken Sessions) the hysterical DumbDims – Pelosi,Shumer calling for resignation…

    this is the drumbeat the opposition wants every day…all to sidetrack Donald and his positive plans for our country…

    and btw…AL Franken is in on this SET-UP…some comedian, huh?

    I am confident Admin is observing all of this…and will be connecting even more dots…

    we must know our Enemy…and be ahead of them

  72. McCain and Lindsey practically walked hand in hand into the Joint Session speech. Get a freaking room! Traitors.

  73. repub Senate and House have no cahunas…they fold so easily…

    how are they going to stand up to O and his henchmen

    here we have DumbDims with no power…and the stupid repubs are going to give it to them…

    hand it over fellas…right into their hands…

    btw…McCaskill says she never met the Russians and she is in a photo with the ambassador…is she “lying” too

  74. interesting where i live…the only two stations that just got knocked off the air are fox news and fox business as soon as Pence started speaking

    cnn and msnbc are on pushing the russia story…


  75. Time to call the pu$$yhat Republicans, of course they don’t care, their real paycheck is coming from Soros

  76. gonzo, I’d like to hear someone ask them point blank

    Have you ever received any money or donations from Soros?

    and start with Paul Ryan, McCain, Lindsey…go down the list

    a country full of traitors in our govt…yes, the swamp

  77. this is the ‘republican’ who is quoted saying “if sessions misled the congress, that would be a good way to go to jail”

    Ricard W Painter…he voted for Hillary


    Why is it Lois Lerner and the IRS head, to name two, never went to jail…not even a threat to put them in jail…

    so many people that have been in front of congress have out and out lied…did any go to jail?

    As the resident “sexist pig” on Big Pink, I could not have said it better myself. 😄 She has made millions with her on again off again weight loss over the years.

  79. Sessions speaking now, asshat questions to him of course.

    I hate these people, I hate these people, I hate these people…

  80. Really, I think we just need to start making bets on who will be the next person accused of working with the Russians, once they lose traction with Sessions. Perhaps it’s a sign of whom they fear most, when they identify each current Boris and Natasha …

  81. Trump needs to fill his departments at a faster rate. Can’t be relying on holdovers that are entranced in all these departments , especially DOJ and CIA . Too many obama appointees still in place causing havoc and making leaks

  82. Agree. Trump needs to move fast. Flynn and Sessions did not serve him well. These were easy to answer and explain events that they should have disclosed.
