President Trump’s political momentum continued to grow with his State of the Union speech. “This is our New American Moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American dream,” he said.
“The era of economic surrender is over,” the president said.
Wow. Even some Trump haters admitted that the speech was a home run. Who ever would have thought we would be hearing those positive words in 2018 after the Obama Depression. If Hillary were president, we would certainly not be hearing this.
Normally these speeches are no big deal and pretty routine but Trump’s first such address drew enormous attention since he is doing what Democrats only have dreamed of and thus they must seek to bring him down and mute his success.
Let’s face it – Democrats never expected that this man would ever be making this speech. They just assumed before November 8, 2016 that Hillary Clinton would be offering us another boilerplate lecture on ‘climate change’ and ‘equal pay’ and ‘social justice’ and ‘tolerance’… you know, all the things that Democrats have been banging their drum over since the 1960s as our nation has declined.
Now that president Trump is turning this nation around, Democrats are aghast. They cannot let Americans know that something good is happening while the most liberal US states like Connecticut, New York, Illinois and California are withering economically and conservative states are thriving. California now has America’s highest poverty rate.
President Trump’s speech was optimistic as he talked about a nation being built up again, slowly but surely. Coming after Trump’s big splash at the international conference in Davos, Switzerland where he was expected to be shunned, this president is on a roll.
“The motto is ‘In God We Trust'”, said the president. Fantastic. When the president cited Preston Sharp, a young California kid who has placed 40,000 flags on veterans’ graves, it was a wonderful moment. The president also mentioned our duty to stand for our National Anthem but Democrats shamefully sat as the rest of the audience stood and applauded.
The president also expressed hope for “the right to try” lifesaving drugs that are only experimental. This is yet another idea that the hyper-regulators on the Democrat side have been blocking for decades.
“Let’s open great vocational schools,” the president said, something that has been ignored for decades.
The president then talked extensively about border protection and immigration reform, like ending chain migration.
When he talked about American greatness and some in the audience began to chant “USA! USA!” the pipsqueak Democrat open-borders activist congressman Luis Gutierrez walked out of the speech. This is what we have come to expect from the Democrats – raw hatred of America and our laws.
The most shocking moment of the speech came when some Democrats audibly groaned at the mention of the murderous MS-13 Salvadoran gang as if this was something that we should not be talking about since MS-13 are hispanic and almost all illegal immigrants.
Perhaps his most important line was when he said, “Americans are dreamers too.” With those four words he undercut and enraged all the Democrats who think that illegal alien “dreamers” are the only people we should be thinking about. Fantastic.
There was a time when the nation would have welcomed such an optimistic speech but like classic socialists, those people who vote Democrat today can no longer tolerate good news. Socialism is a growing compendium of woe, grievance, anger, indignation, disbelief, anxiety and confusion. Even when president Trump mentioned the historically low black unemployment rate, black politicians in the audience sat on their hands and appeared downright angry. Nancy Pelosi refused to acknowledge any of the good news in the speech.
Democrats fear most that the president is gaining respectability despite the Fake News Media’s 24/7 war on Trump. He got very high marks for his speech. Democrats must now go on the attack.
A truly sad moment was the introduction of a North Korean defector who had suffered unspeakable horror at the hands of the communists. We never would have heard about this man from the Democrats.
One of the best moments of the speech was the president citing congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously injured in a shooting last June by a Bernie Sanders supporter.
The Democrat response to the speech through congressman Joe Kennedy was a disaster. Kennedy was stiff and he appeared to have some sort of drool coming out of the corners of his mouth. The Trump Curse strikes again!
Let’s look at a few excerpts from the Trump speech to see how he did. Each excerpt is followed by a Nikitas3.com comment:
Trump said: Together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America. Nikitas3.com comment: Fantastic and true. And just what Democrats don’t want. Liberals thrive when there is crime, poverty and shame over America.
Trump said: 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. Nikitas3.com comment: Yessir, the president is speaking to Two Americas, just like his critics said. The ones who are lazy and who hate America will not like what he is saying. They are called Welfare State Democrats.
Trump said: Just as I promised the American People from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history. Nikitas3.com comment: Wow. A politician who kept his promise. That’s Trump for you.
Trump said: Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker. Nikitas3.com comment: Friends, this is just the beginning of a long economic expansion that will help tens of millions of people. This is just the opening act.
Trump said: Americans love their country. And they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return. Nikitas3.com comment: Well, some Americans love their country. They are called Trump voters.
Trump said: In our drive to make Washington accountable, we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any administration in history. Nikitas3.com comment: This is why the economy is thriving. These regulations are one of the main impediments. Democrats love regulations. That is why the economy never recovered under Obama. Trump was able to repeal regulations because they are not laws passed by Congress. They are regulations imposed by federal agencies.
Trump said: America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just one year – isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a permit approved for a simple road? Nikitas3.com comment: That is what socialism and environmentalism do. They strangle the natural inclination of man to build.
Trump said: As we rebuild America’s strength and confidence at home, we are also restoring our strength and standing abroad. Last year I pledged that we would work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from the face of the earth. One year later, I’m proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIS has liberated almost 100 percent of the territory once held by these killers in Iraq and Syria. But there is much more work to be done. We will continue our fight until ISIS is defeated.
Nikitas3.com comment: This is the most underreported story of 2017. President Trump ended two major wars in Iraq and Syria by using American air power to destroy the terrorists. Obama did nothing about this tragedy and those wars dragged on for six years.
