Anything factually inaccurate in the four page House document soon to be released against the Democrat wishes?

FBI Officials Review Surveillance Memo, Could Not Cite ‘Any Factual Inaccuracies’: Source

 Editor:   Anything factually inaccurate in the four page House document soon to be released?  The answer is "no."  So, why are they up in arms about its release?  

Only reason I can think of:  The document proves the involvement of the Dems and their misuse of the FBI, or,  it shows the complicity of Barack and his minions.   

We already know that in the final year of his administration,  Ambassador Powers and Susan Rice were busy unmasking names contained in the FISA files,  unmasking to the tune of 500 or more during that final year.  Keep in mind that his "home" in D.C., a third dwelling,  is really office space for his shadow government,  just in case Barack realized he was losing control of the agenda he had left behind. 

At any rate,  the Dems apparently cannot discredit the memo,  although they will certainly come up with a strategy to blunt the impact of this document.  I have believed,  from the beginning,  that the Democrats would come to hate the day they decided to force this made up scandal  (Trump as a Russian spy),  and that "day" is now.  

Me?  I spend a lot more time laughing at the Dems than worrying about their lies and misleading agenda. 

Offical text of the State of the Union speech, last night.

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States, and my fellow Americans:

Less than 1 year has passed since I first stood at this podium, in this majestic chamber, to speak on behalf of the American People — and to address their concerns, their hopes, and their dreams.  That night, our new Administration had already taken swift action.  A new tide of optimism was already sweeping across our land.
Each day since, we have gone forward with a clear vision and a righteous mission — to make America great again for all Americans.
Over the last year, we have made incredible progress and achieved extraordinary success.  We have faced challenges we expected, and others we could never have imagined.  We have shared in the heights of victory and the pain of hardship.  We endured floods and fires and storms.  But through it all, we have seen the beauty of America’s soul, and the steel in America’s spine.
Each test has forged new American heroes to remind us who we are, and show us what we can be.
We saw the volunteers of the “Cajun Navy,” racing to the rescue with their fishing boats to save people in the aftermath of a devastating hurricane.
We saw strangers shielding strangers from a hail of gunfire on the Las Vegas strip.
We heard tales of Americans like Coast Guard Petty Officer Ashlee Leppert, who is here tonight in the gallery with Melania.  Ashlee was aboard one of the first helicopters on the scene in Houston during Hurricane Harvey.  Through 18 hours of wind and rain, Ashlee braved live power lines and deep water, to help save more than 40 lives.  Thank you, Ashlee.
We heard about Americans like firefighter David Dahlberg.  He is here with us too.  David faced down walls of flame to rescue almost 60 children trapped at a California summer camp threatened by wildfires.
To everyone still recovering in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, California, and everywhere else — we are with you, we love you, and we will pull through together.
Some trials over the past year touched this chamber very personally.  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.
We are incredibly grateful for the heroic efforts of the Capitol Police Officers, the Alexandria Police, and the doctors, nurses, and paramedics who saved his life, and the lives of many others in this room.
In the aftermath of that terrible shooting, we came together, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people.  But it is not enough to come together only in times of tragedy.  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.
Over the last year, the world has seen what we always knew:  that no people on Earth are so fearless, or daring, or determined as Americans.  If there is a mountain, we climb it.  If there is a frontier, we cross it.  If there is a challenge, we tame it.  If there is an opportunity, we seize it.
So let us begin tonight by recognizing that the state of our Union is strong because our people are strong.
And together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America.
Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone.  After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.
Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low.  African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded, and Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history.
Small business confidence is at an all-time high.  The stock market has smashed one record after another, gaining $8 trillion in value.  That is great news for Americans’ 401k, retirement, pension, and college savings accounts.
And just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.
Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the middle class and small businesses.
To lower tax rates for hardworking Americans, we nearly doubled the standard deduction for everyone.  Now, the first $24,000 earned by a married couple is completely tax-free.  We also doubled the child tax credit.
A typical family of four making $75,000 will see their tax bill reduced by $2,000 — slashing their tax bill in half.
This April will be the last time you ever file under the old broken system — and millions of Americans will have more take-home pay starting next month.
We eliminated an especially cruel tax that fell mostly on Americans making less than $50,000 a year — forcing them to pay tremendous penalties simply because they could not afford government-ordered health plans.  We repealed the core of disastrous Obamacare — the individual mandate is now gone.
We slashed the business tax rate from 35 percent all the way down to 21 percent, so American companies can compete and win against anyone in the world.  These changes alone are estimated to increase average family income by more than $4,000.
Small businesses have also received a massive tax cut, and can now deduct 20 percent of their business income.
Here tonight are Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger of Staub Manufacturing — a small business in Ohio.  They have just finished the best year in their 20-year history.  Because of tax reform, they are handing out raises, hiring an additional 14 people, and expanding into the building next door.
One of Staub’s employees, Corey Adams, is also with us tonight.  Corey is an all-American worker.  He supported himself through high school, lost his job during the 2008 recession, and was later hired by Staub, where he trained to become a welder.  Like many hardworking Americans, Corey plans to invest his tax‑cut raise into his new home and his two daughters’ education.  Please join me in congratulating Corey.
Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses — many of them thousands of dollars per worker.  Apple has just announced it plans to invest a total of $350 billion in America, and hire another 20,000 workers.
This is our new American moment.  There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream.
So to every citizen watching at home tonight — no matter where you have been, or where you come from, this is your time.  If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything.
Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of Nation we are going to be.  All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family.
We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.
Together, we are rediscovering the American way.
In America, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the American life.  Our motto is “in God we trust.”
And we celebrate our police, our military, and our amazing veterans as heroes who deserve our total and unwavering support.
Here tonight is Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from Redding, California, who noticed that veterans’ graves were not marked with flags on Veterans Day.  He decided to change that, and started a movement that has now placed 40,000 flags at the graves of our great heroes.  Preston:  a job well done.
Young patriots like Preston teach all of us about our civic duty as Americans.  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.
Americans love their country.  And they deserve a Government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.
For the last year we have sought to restore the bonds of trust between our citizens and their Government.
Working with the Senate, we are appointing judges who will interpret the Constitution as written, including a great new Supreme Court Justice, and more circuit court judges than any new administration in the history of our country.
We are defending our Second Amendment, and have taken historic actions to protect religious liberty.
And we are serving our brave veterans, including giving our veterans choice in their healthcare decisions.  Last year, the Congress passed, and I signed, the landmark VA Accountability Act.  Since its passage, my Administration has already removed more than 1,500 VA employees who failed to give our veterans the care they deserve — and we are hiring talented people who love our vets as much as we do.
I will not stop until our veterans are properly taken care of, which has been my promise to them from the very beginning of this great journey.
All Americans deserve accountability and respect — and that is what we are giving them.  So tonight, I call on the Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers — and to remove Federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.
In our drive to make Washington accountable, we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any administration in history.
We have ended the war on American Energy — and we have ended the war on clean coal.  We are now an exporter of energy to the world.
In Detroit, I halted Government mandates that crippled America’s autoworkers — so we can get the Motor City revving its engines once again.
Many car companies are now building and expanding plants in the United States — something we have not seen for decades.    Chrysler is moving a major plant from Mexico to Michigan; Toyota and Mazda are opening up a plant in Alabama.  Soon, plants will be opening up all over the country.  This is all news Americans are unaccustomed to hearing — for many years, companies and jobs were only leaving us.  But now they are coming back.
Exciting progress is happening every day.
To speed access to breakthrough cures and affordable generic drugs, last year the FDA approved more new and generic drugs and medical devices than ever before in our history.
We also believe that patients with terminal conditions should have access to experimental treatments that could potentially save their lives.
People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure — I want to give them a chance right here at home.  It is time for the Congress to give these wonderful Americans the “right to try.”
One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs.  In many other countries, these drugs cost far less than what we pay in the United States.  That is why I have directed my Administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities.  Prices will come down.
America has also finally turned the page on decades of unfair trade deals that sacrificed our prosperity and shipped away our companies, our jobs, and our Nation’s wealth.
The era of economic surrender is over.
From now on, we expect trading relationships to be fair and to be reciprocal.
We will work to fix bad trade deals and negotiate new ones.
And we will protect American workers and American intellectual property, through strong enforcement of our trade rules.
As we rebuild our industries, it is also time to rebuild our crumbling 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?
I am asking both parties to come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure our economy needs and our people deserve.
Tonight, I am calling on the Congress to produce a bill that generates at least $1.5 trillion for the new infrastructure investment we need.
Every Federal dollar should be leveraged by partnering with State and local governments and, where appropriate, tapping into private sector investment — to permanently fix the infrastructure deficit.
Any bill must also streamline the permitting and approval process — getting it down to no more than two years, and perhaps even one.
Together, we can reclaim our building heritage.  We will build gleaming new roads, bridges, highways, railways, and waterways across our land.  And we will do it with American heart, American hands, and American grit.

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.

We can lift our citizens from welfare to work, from dependence to independence, and from poverty to prosperity.
As tax cuts create new jobs, let us invest in workforce development and job training.  Let us open great vocational schools so our future workers can learn a craft and realize their full potential.  And let us support working families by supporting paid family leave.
As America regains its strength, this opportunity must be extended to all citizens.  That is why this year we will embark on reforming our prisons to help former inmates who have served their time get a second chance.

Struggling communities, especially immigrant communities, will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of American workers and American families.

For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities.  They have allowed millions of low-wage workers to compete for jobs and wages against the poorest Americans.  Most tragically, they have caused the loss of many innocent lives.

Here tonight are two fathers and two mothers:  Evelyn Rodriguez, Freddy Cuevas, Elizabeth Alvarado, and Robert Mickens.  Their two teenage daughters — Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens — were close friends on Long Island.  But in September 2016, on the eve of Nisa’s 16th Birthday, neither of them came home.  These two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown.  Six members of the savage gang MS-13 have been charged with Kayla and Nisa’s murders.  Many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors ‑- and wound up in Kayla and Nisa’s high school.
Evelyn, Elizabeth, Freddy, and Robert:  Tonight, everyone in this chamber is praying for you.  Everyone in America is grieving for you.  And 320 million hearts are breaking for you.  We cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow, but we can make sure that other families never have to endure this pain.
Tonight, I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country.  We have proposed new legislation that will fix our immigration laws, and support our ICE and Border Patrol Agents, so that this cannot ever happen again.
The United States is a compassionate nation.  We are proud that we do more than any other country to help the needy, the struggling, and the underprivileged all over the world.  But as President of the United States, my highest loyalty, my greatest compassion, and my constant concern is for America’s children, America’s struggling workers, and America’s forgotten communities.  I want our youth to grow up to achieve great things.  I want our poor to have their chance to rise.
So tonight, I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion, and creed.  My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream.  Because Americans are dreamers too.
Here tonight is one leader in the effort to defend our country:  Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Celestino Martinez — he goes by CJ.  CJ served 15 years in the Air Force before becoming an ICE agent and spending the last 15 years fighting gang violence and getting dangerous criminals off our streets.  At one point, MS-13 leaders ordered CJ’s murder.  But he did not cave to threats or fear.  Last May, he commanded an operation to track down gang members on Long Island.  His team has arrested nearly 400, including more than 220 from MS-13.
CJ:  Great work.  Now let us get the Congress to send you some reinforcements.
Over the next few weeks, the House and Senate will be voting on an immigration reform package.
In recent months, my Administration has met extensively with both Democrats and Republicans to craft a bipartisan approach to immigration reform.  Based on these discussions, we presented the Congress with a detailed proposal that should be supported by both parties as a fair compromise — one where nobody gets everything they want, but where our country gets the critical reforms it needs.
Here are the four pillars of our plan:
The first pillar of our framework generously offers a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought here by their parents at a young age — that covers almost three times more people than the previous administration.  Under our plan, those who meet education and work requirements, and show good moral character, will be able to become full citizens of the United States.
The second pillar fully secures the border.  That means building a wall on the Southern border, and it means hiring more heroes like CJ to keep our communities safe.  Crucially, our plan closes the terrible loopholes exploited by criminals and terrorists to enter our country — and it finally ends the dangerous practice of “catch and release.”
The third pillar ends the visa lottery — a program that randomly hands out green cards without any regard for skill, merit, or the safety of our people.  It is time to begin moving towards a merit-based immigration system — one that admits people who are skilled, who want to work, who will contribute to our society, and who will love and respect our country.
The fourth and final pillar protects the nuclear family by ending chain migration.  Under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives.  Under our plan, we focus on the immediate family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children.  This vital reform is necessary, not just for our economy, but for our security, and our future.
In recent weeks, two terrorist attacks in New York were made possible by the visa lottery and chain migration.  In the age of terrorism, these programs present risks we can no longer afford.
It is time to reform these outdated immigration rules, and finally bring our immigration system into the 21st century.
These four pillars represent a down-the-middle compromise, and one that will create a safe, modern, and lawful immigration system.
For over 30 years, Washington has tried and failed to solve this problem.  This Congress can be the one that finally makes it happen.
Most importantly, these four pillars will produce legislation that fulfills my ironclad pledge to only sign a bill that puts America first.  So let us come together, set politics aside, and finally get the job done.
These reforms will also support our response to the terrible crisis of opioid and drug addiction.
In 2016, we lost 64,000 Americans to drug overdoses:  174 deaths per day.  Seven per hour.  We must get much tougher on drug dealers and pushers if we are going to succeed in stopping this scourge.
My Administration is committed to fighting the drug epidemic and helping get treatment for those in need.  The struggle will be long and difficult — but, as Americans always do, we will prevail.
As we have seen tonight, the most difficult challenges bring out the best in America.
We see a vivid expression of this truth in the story of the Holets family of New Mexico.  Ryan Holets is 27 years old, and an officer with the Albuquerque Police Department.  He is here tonight with his wife Rebecca.  Last year, Ryan was on duty when he saw a pregnant, homeless woman preparing to inject heroin.  When Ryan told her she was going to harm her unborn child, she began to weep.  She told him she did not know where to turn, but badly wanted a safe home for her baby.
In that moment, Ryan said he felt God speak to him:  “You will do it — because you can.”  He took out a picture of his wife and their four kids.  Then, he went home to tell his wife Rebecca.  In an instant, she agreed to adopt.  The Holets named their new daughter Hope.
Ryan and Rebecca:  You embody the goodness of our Nation.  Thank you, and congratulations.
As we rebuild America’s strength and confidence at home, we are also restoring our strength and standing abroad.
Around the world, we face rogue regimes, terrorist groups, and rivals like China and Russia that challenge our interests, our economy, and our values.  In confronting these dangers, we know that weakness is the surest path to conflict, and unmatched power is the surest means of our defense.
For this reason, I am asking the Congress to end the dangerous defense sequester and fully fund our great military.
As part of our defense, we must modernize and rebuild our nuclear arsenal, hopefully never having to use it, but making it so strong and powerful that it will deter any acts of aggression.  Perhaps someday in the future there will be a magical moment when the countries of the world will get together to eliminate their nuclear weapons.  Unfortunately, we are not there yet.
Last year, I also pledged that we would work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from the face of the Earth.  One year later, I am 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.
Army Staff Sergeant Justin Peck is here tonight.  Near Raqqa last November, Justin and his comrade, Chief Petty Officer Kenton Stacy, were on a mission to clear buildings that ISIS had rigged with explosives so that civilians could return to the city.
Clearing the second floor of a vital hospital, Kenton Stacy was severely wounded by an explosion.  Immediately, Justin bounded into the booby-trapped building and found Kenton in bad shape.  He applied pressure to the wound and inserted a tube to reopen an airway.  He then performed CPR for 20 straight minutes during the ground transport and maintained artificial respiration through 2 hours of emergency surgery.
Kenton Stacy would have died if not for Justin’s selfless love for a fellow warrior.  Tonight, Kenton is recovering in Texas.  Raqqa is liberated.  And Justin is wearing his new Bronze Star, with a “V” for “Valor.”  Staff Sergeant Peck:  All of America salutes you.
Terrorists who do things like place bombs in civilian hospitals are evil.  When possible, we annihilate them.  When necessary, we must be able to detain and question them.  But we must be clear:  Terrorists are not merely criminals.  They are unlawful enemy combatants.  And when captured overseas, they should be treated like the terrorists they are.
In the past, we have foolishly released hundreds of dangerous terrorists, only to meet them again on the battlefield — including the ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi.
So today, I am keeping another promise.  I just signed an order directing Secretary Mattis to reexamine our military detention policy and to keep open the detention facilities at Guantánamo Bay.
I am also asking the Congress to ensure that, in the fight against ISIS and al-Qa’ida, we continue to have all necessary power to detain terrorists — wherever we chase them down.
Our warriors in Afghanistan also have new rules of engagement.  Along with their heroic Afghan partners, our military is no longer undermined by artificial timelines, and we no longer tell our enemies our plans.
Last month, I also took an action endorsed unanimously by the Senate just months before:  I recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Shortly afterwards, dozens of countries voted in the United Nations General Assembly against America’s sovereign right to make this recognition.  American taxpayers generously send those same countries billions of dollars in aid every year.
That is why, tonight, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to help ensure American foreign-assistance dollars always serve American interests, and only go to America’s friends.
As we strengthen friendships around the world, we are also restoring clarity about our adversaries.
When the people of Iran rose up against the crimes of their corrupt dictatorship, I did not stay silent.  America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom.
I am asking the Congress to address the fundamental flaws in the terrible Iran nuclear deal.
My Administration has also imposed tough sanctions on the communist and socialist dictatorships in Cuba and Venezuela.
But no regime has oppressed its own citizens more totally or brutally than the cruel dictatorship in North Korea.
North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland.
We are waging a campaign of maximum pressure to prevent that from happening.
Past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation.  I will not repeat the mistakes of past administrations that got us into this dangerous position.
We need only look at the depraved character of the North Korean regime to understand the nature of the nuclear threat it could pose to America and our allies.
Otto Warmbier was a hardworking student at the University of Virginia.  On his way to study abroad in Asia, Otto joined a tour to North Korea.  At its conclusion, this wonderful young man was arrested and charged with crimes against the state.  After a shameful trial, the dictatorship sentenced Otto to 15 years of hard labor, before returning him to America last June — horribly injured and on the verge of death.  He passed away just days after his return.
Otto’s Parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, are with us tonight — along with Otto’s brother and sister, Austin and Greta.  You are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world, and your strength inspires us all.  Tonight, we pledge to honor Otto’s memory with American resolve.
Finally, we are joined by one more witness to the ominous nature of this regime.  His name is Mr. Ji Seong-ho.
In 1996, Seong-ho was a starving boy in North Korea.  One day, he tried to steal coal from a railroad car to barter for a few scraps of food.  In the process, he passed out on the train tracks, exhausted from hunger.  He woke up as a train ran over his limbs.  He then endured multiple amputations without anything to dull the pain.  His brother and sister gave what little food they had to help him recover and ate dirt themselves — permanently stunting their own growth.  Later, he was tortured by North Korean authorities after returning from a brief visit to China.  His tormentors wanted to know if he had met any Christians.  He had — and he resolved to be free.
Seong-ho traveled thousands of miles on crutches across China and Southeast Asia to freedom.  Most of his family followed.  His father was caught trying to escape, and was tortured to death.
Today he lives in Seoul, where he rescues other defectors, and broadcasts into North Korea what the regime fears the most ‑- the truth.
Today he has a new leg, but Seong-ho, I understand you still keep those crutches as a reminder of how far you have come.  Your great sacrifice is an inspiration to us all.
Seong-ho’s story is a testament to the yearning of every human soul to live in freedom.
It was that same yearning for freedom that nearly 250 years ago gave birth to a special place called America.  It was a small cluster of colonies caught between a great ocean and a vast wilderness.  But it was home to an incredible people with a revolutionary idea:  that they could rule themselves.  That they could chart their own destiny.  And that, together, they could light up the world.
That is what our country has always been about.  That is what Americans have always stood for, always strived for, and always done.

Atop the dome of this Capitol stands the Statue of Freedom.  She stands tall and dignified among the monuments to our ancestors who fought and lived and died to protect her.
Monuments to Washington and Jefferson — to Lincoln and King.
Memorials to the heroes of Yorktown and Saratoga — to young Americans who shed their blood on the shores of Normandy, and the fields beyond.  And others, who went down in the waters of the Pacific and the skies over Asia.

And freedom stands tall over one more monument:  this one.  This Capitol.  This living monument to the American people.
A people whose heroes live not only in the past, but all around us — defending hope, pride, and the American way.
They work in every trade.  They sacrifice to raise a family.  They care for our children at home.  They defend our flag abroad.  They are strong moms and brave kids.  They are firefighters, police officers, border agents, medics, and Marines.
But above all else, they are Americans.  And this Capitol, this city, and this Nation, belong to them.
Our task is to respect them, to listen to them, to serve them, to protect them, and to always be worthy of them.
Americans fill the world with art and music.  They push the bounds of science and discovery.  And they forever remind us of what we should never forget:  The people dreamed this country. The people built this country.  And it is the people who are making America great again.
As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve.
As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail.
Our families will thrive.
Our people will prosper.
And our Nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free.

Thank you, and God bless America.

January 30, 2018.

So, what did the folks think of the speech last night - Trump speaking to his largest audience ever?

Eight in 10 Americans who watched tonight felt that the president was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it.  Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer.  Fewer said the speech made them feel angry or scared  . . . . .   so says a CBS instant poll. 

Contrast this with the tiny audience over at CNN (CNN airs to the smallest audience of the "big six"  -  NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MSNBC, and of all, CNN).  

The CNN headline:

CNN Instant poll: Trump gets least positive reaction in at least 20 years

There is a reason why there is no urgency:

Republicans Show Little Urgency on Legislation to Protect Mueller

Editor:  Look,  Trump is on record saying he has no plans to fire Mueller.  It ain't going to happen.  This sudden concern to "block Trump's effort to fire Mueller" is nothing but a ploy to cast Trump as a loose canon when it comes to this investigation.  

Like I said,  a rather transparent ploy about something that is not going to happen.  

Anyone ever notice just how the Dems are attached to things that never happen.  First,  it was all about Hillary winning.  They even laughed about Trump's candidacy.  Then they helped  create that phony Dossier, most, if not all of which, was unture.  There is the Russian conspiracy,  Trump being a secret agent for Putin.  Remember all those staffers who were going to quit?  I am talking about Cohen and Kelly and Mattis and MacMasters.  They are still with the Prez with no plans to go anywhere soon.  And now,  since the Storym Daniels thing is going nowhere,  they have decided the folks will believe that Nikki Haley is having an affair with Dandy Don.  

And the Dems have the larger brains.  Good grief.    

There is no place for the Conservative thinker, in the mind of a Marxist Liberal

 95 share/1178 pageviews
 Editor:  There is a rule that,  seemingly,  works 100% of the time:  In politics,  your criticisms of the "other guy,"  can always be demonstrated in your behavior or that of your political party.  The Post article and our excerpt,  helps to confirm this rule. 

From the Post with commentary  (Italics) :   

Someday, likely three years from now, perhaps sooner, perhaps — gulp — later, President Trump will depart the stage.

But what will be left of us? 

The question,  itself,  is pejorative in nature.  Its sets up a false comparison,  one that Libs hold on to with determination:  that the other half of the nation's population is not worthy,  that their opinions do not matter,  and should not be considered.  The fact that, from the beginning,  Hillary and her minions,  had it in mind to reject the election's outcome, provided that she lost that election,  of course, and work to rule over half the nation's population against their will.  Understand that an attack against Trump,  always results in an attack against all of the patriot nation. 
New evidence suggests that the damage he is doing to the culture is bigger than the man. A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday found that two-thirds of Americans say Trump is not a good role model for children. Every component of society feels that way — men and women, old and young, black and white, highly educated or not — except for one: Republicans. By 72 to 22 percent, they say Trump is a good role model.

Damage to the culture?  Where "the culture" does not include half the nation.  Number two:  Make note of the "fact" that "every component of society" does not include half of the voting population.  And no one I know,  believes that Trump is a good role model when it comes to some of his personal behavior.    

 In marked contrast to the rest of the country, Republicans also say that Trump shares their values (82 percent) and that — get this — he “provides the United States with moral leadership” (80 percent). 

Once again,  we have Republicans and their conservative Independent voting base,  and "the rest of the nation."  Outside of the State of California,  the remaning 49 states actually voted for Trump  . . . . the majority of those living outside of California.   

. . . . . .    so let’s see what else might have led 72 percent of Republicans to conclude Trump is a good role model:
His lawyer arranged to make payment to a porn star, Stormy Daniels, a month before the election for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Assuming  the truth of this 12 year old story (stormy Daniels was an event in Trumps life in 2005, folks), and no one believes that this episode is one to honored and followed  . . . . .  unless you are Bill Clinton or one of the Democrat women who have offered to give out "blowjobs" in support of Bubba.

He used a vulgar word to describe African countries during a racist rant to lawmakers at the White House.

Vulgar word????  !!!!   Look,  wearing a hat that is "their" version of a vagina,  giving honor to cop killers such as Black Lives Matters,  Al Sharpton's gang of threatening thugs, Green Peace and its determination to actually burn down car lots, under construction residential complexes,  marching in parades while screaming obscenities so profane that they cannot be uttered on live television, and more  . . . .  all point to a form of hypocrisy that borders on mental illness  (seriously). 

He was mounting a campaign to discredit the “corrupt” FBI, the Justice Department and the special prosecutor, just as he previously sought to disqualify courts and judges.

And what do Libs do when legal opinion goes against them.  Don't forget that the High Courts decision favoring Citizens United (2010) was reward with a pointed finger and ridicule,  all from Barack Obama, himself,  during his first State of the Union Address.

He backed a credibly accused child molester for the Senate from Alabama.

Trump actually support a different Republican candidate,  but made it clear that nothing is worse than continual support for a socialist candidate.  

And so on.

Yet so strong is the pull of tribalism that we’ve reached a point where partisanship outweighs morality. Republicans aren’t approving of Trump despite his behavior; in calling him a role model, they’re approving his behavior.   (Source:  you can read this pejorative commentary at the  Washington Post, here).  

Finally, this word "tribalism,"   makes it sound as if the Patriot Nation is a bunch of Ginnies,  living in grass huts,  out in the middle of some foreign land.  Understand that our first "tribal" president was George Washington.  Barack Obama was our first Rogue President,  a Marxist who denied the value of the white man's document  (i.e. the Constitution),  the white man's god,  and the white man's national history  . . . .  at least these are the thoughts of those he ran with  (Louis Farrakhan,  Jeremiah Wright,  Bill Ayers,  Al Sharpton,  BLM,  Eric Holder,  the Muslim Brotherhood,  and on and on). 

Now you know how they really feel.  If we are not acceptable and represent half this nation's population,   how do we continue as a nation?  Answer:  we probably don't. 

Here is a review of the Trump/Mattis accomplished in their first year. Quite impressive, no?

It has been over a year since retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis took the oath of office as secretary of defense.
Despite what his old call sign of “Chaos” implies, which actually stands for Colonel Has An Outstanding Solution, and while it was made tongue-and-cheek at the time, it brings a mantra that many in the military and civilian population hoped Mattis would take with him to his new job.
Approved overwhelmingly for the Cabinet position — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) was the sole dissenting vote and who did not respond to multiple requests for comment — the majority thinking in “the Swamp” was that Mattis would be one of the best in Trump’s administration.
His first year has been marked with significant accomplishments, and he continues to enjoy being the most popular member of Trump’s Cabinet. IJR was able to get comments from members of Congress and others to see how they think he has done so far.
If there’s one thing members of Congress can agree on, it’s that Mattis has successfully overseen the near-destruction of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), who also has the distinction of being a lieutenant colonel in the Marine Reserves, told IJR he doesn’t know why the press hasn’t been all over the success of America’s campaign to not just contain ISIS but completely eradicate them.
He credits the victories to the troops on the ground being reinforced by Mattis’s “warrior ethos” style of leadership:
“[Mattis] talks about that as a campaign of annihilation, not containment, but annihilation, and those kind of frank, clear directives provide people with the leadership. […] He has taken this seriously, but frankly. […] A lot more needs to be done, can’t let the vacuum be filled by the Iranians.”
Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, told IJR that Mattis’s “clear-eyed commitment” to seeing the destruction of ISIS is not something only we see but so do other terrorist groups.
Marine veteran Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) pointed to how differently the current administration has dealt with the terror group, as opposed to former President Barack Obama’s administration:
“Mattis very simply empowered the commanders on the ground finally, that was it. You had eight years of the wars being micromanaged back here in D.C. and micromanaged in the Pentagon, through the the president, and that’s changed now.”
Generals on the ground in the Middle East credit the change in leadership style from Trump and Mattis to the rapid success in pushing ISIS out of major cities in Iraq and Syria.   . . . .   keep reading, here.

Why Obama failed:

There is no such thing as "leading from behind."

There were no "shovel ready jobs."  Sadly,  Barack knew so little about a jobs-based economy,  that he actually thought "shovel ready" sounded like a good idea.  

Government does not create thriving economy,  emphasis on "thriving."  Understand that Barack thought "Cash for Clunkers" would ignite auto sales,  and that,  in turn,  would kick start the economy in spite of increases in business taxation and a burdensome regulatory climate that broke the back of small lending institutions. 

He also say a path to full employment repairing potholes, weather stripping our home, capturing the world for solar panel construction and supply.  

He apparently did not know that county workers maintained our highways, potholes included.  Neither did he know that most General Builders,  supplied and installed weather stripping,  and had done so for decades.  And,  since he refused to offer deregulation and a business tax break,  foreign countries owned the solar panel business.  

Barack decided that if the government paid for golf cart refunds, at tax time,  this would ignite the electric car manufacturing base.  

In other words,  to all of the above,  he was a very stupid man.  


So, how are our 401K accounts doing? Pleasant surprise.

So,  how are our 401K accounts doing?  Pleasant surprise: According to a guest on the Fox Business channel, his 401 K account, dormant during the Obama years,  has increased more than at anytime in past 16 years.  

Savings account and 401K retirement accounts,  were penalized under Obama.  He refused to cut regulations because he was (literally) busy saving the planet,  and, tax breaks for corporations was out because those greedy CEO's would unfairly benefit from lower taxes.  It wasn't fair,  so no serious tax cuts for anyone.  

As a result,  the Obama years'  legacy was found in the slowest eight year recover in the nations history.  Obama and his pundits busied themselves trying to convince us that 2% GDP was the new 4% GDP.  We would never see 4% growth again,  and with the eight year annual GDP average of 1.8%,  it certainly looked as if Barack's predictions were spot on.  Too bad he didn't take fiance 101 while in college, or,  at least tried to manage a fruit stand.

So,  here comes Trump,  and suddenly the GDP numbers went up,  wages began to increase (up 4% in a year and half),  Black unemployment went to 6.8%,  the lowest in recorded history,  the national unemployment numbers came in at 4.1%,  officially full employment, and suddenly life is good and getting better.  

Hang on folks, the train just left the station and the Dems are not on board !!!!!! 

More good news because of the Trump Tax Cuts:

Home Depot to give out $1000 bonuses and a wage increase to $15 per hour.  

Northrop Grumman, the chief supplier of air surveillance and radar equipment,   has announced it will make a $1000 contribution to its worker's retirement account. 

Fiat Chrysler will hand out $5,500 profit sharing checks and a $3,000 bonus to its workers because of this tax cut and the reduction in regulations.

Pelosi says this is a crumb when it comes to tax-cut benefits. Oh really?

You should know that 3.5 million American workers have received or will received millions in bonuses and wage increases,  even 12 months before the tax reform bill takes effect.  

Pelosi frames all this as "crumbs,"  telling those who listen,  that these benefits are "just pathetic."  Never mind that in 2011,  Barack tried to get a 10 week cut in payroll taxes totally $400 per worker.  I said, "Four hundred dollars."  

Now compare that to the recent FedEx announcement that it will spend 200 million dollars in merit driven bonuses and wage increases  . . . . . . .    200 million.  

Have you ever put on a newly laundered pair of pants,  only to find a 20 dollar bill in one of the pockets.  Remember the feeling?  You were excited,  more than pleased   . . . . . .  and, today,  we are talking $1000 bonuses to FedEx works,  HomeDepot folks,  and more than 300 additional companies.  Guaranteed,  Pelosi and Company will fail in their efforts to minimize these immediate benefits rising from Trumps tax reform bill.  

He is keeping his promises,  crushing Democrat objections at the same time.   One thing for certain:  had Hillary won the 2016 election,  there would have never been a tax cut,  no wage increases,  no bonuses   . . . .  nothing.  For two decades,  the common working man has been left out in the cold,  by Dems and Republicans alike.  Into this vacuum, comes Donald Trump.  

And the Dems have kissed off the working class forever.  

Hail to the Chief.  

Now Schumer has pissed off Tom Steyer, a multi-billionaire who has given millions to Democrat causes.

Billionaire Tom Steyer is refusing to donate any more money to the Democratic Party after party leaders compromised on a deal that reopened the federal government.
Steyer, who financed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, told Fortune Magazine Wednesday that he can no longer give money to a party that sells out on principles.
“I don’t have a litmus test on any one thing, but I do have a litmus test for elected officials standing on principle and doing the right thing, looked at holistically,” said Steyer, adding that he will forgo donating to the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee or the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
“And I want to say that after the DACA vote I have decided not to give anything to the national party committees,” he said, referring to the Democratic Party’s decision to reach a deal to reopen the government without agreeing on what should be done about the so-called Dreamers.   (Source:  The Daily Caller)  

Editor:  What many on the Right hope for,  is taking place and the Democrats do not know how to stop it.  What am I talking about?  The decline and fall of the Democrat Party.  

They have lost three of the past national/midterm elections and in the 2012 victory for Obama,  the Dems took in 4.5 million fewer votes than in 2008.  They have lost 1200 positions, nationwide,  61 seats in the House,  control of Congress,  and the Middle Working Class.  And now,  we are seeing defections on their Left Bank.  

Steyer is as far Left as you can get and he has been a rock,  when it comes to financial support.  When you lose this man,  you know that the Dems have serious problems  . . . .  more so than they care to discuss.  

Trump has made it clear that he does not care enough for a second term to change course.  He is going to return America to its established position in this world,  before Barack,  second term be damned.  

Now, we are to believe that Nikki Haley is sleeping with the President. Next in bed with the Prez, Hillary?

Nikki Haley is not having an affair with Trump,  and the fact that the Left is now making this argument is reason enough for us all to ignore the Left on any charges against Trump of personal misconduct.  Number One,  we don't care.  The mere existence of the Clintons is reason enough.  I mean,  if they don't care about misconduct of the Hillary and Bill,  why should anyone care about Trump.  There is no answer for this objection.   Number Two,  on its face,  the crap lie that Haley is having an affair with The Donald,  is, itself,  and ridiculous lie.  

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was forced to defend herself from rumors she was having an affair with the president, calling such talk “disgusting” Thursday.
Haley said it was “absolutely not true” that she was having an affair with President Donald Trump after “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff insinuated the two were having an inappropriate relationship, reports Politico.

“So the idea that these things come out, that’s a problem. But it goes to a bigger issue that we need to always be conscious of: At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not,” Haley told Politico’s Women Rule podcast.

Another flawed "legal" opinion coming out of the Left Coast media:

Most white-collar prosecutions turn on the issue of criminal intent. These cases involve behavior that would, in ordinary circumstances, be totally legal—if not for the intent of the defendant. Consider, for example, the entrepreneur who sells stock in a company whose value goes down. If business conditions turn sour, or the competitive environment changes, the loss is simply part of the risks of capitalism. There’s no crime. But if the entrepreneur knows that his company has no value, or has lied about its assets, then he has committed fraud. Insider trading is another example. It’s only criminal to sell stock if you had improper knowledge of the status of the company. In both kinds of cases, the key question regards the defendant’s state of mind. That’s why lawyers refer to “intent cases”; the outcome turns solely on the motivation of the defendant.The issue of whether President Trump obstructed justice centers on his decision to fire James Comey, the F.B.I. director, last May. This is a classic intent case. The President clearly had the right to fire Comey, but he did not have the right to do so with improper intent. Specifically, the relevant obstruction-of-justice statute holds that any individual who “corruptly . . . influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice” is guilty of the crime. “Corruptly” is the key word. Did Trump act “corruptly” in firing Comey?  (Source: The New Yorker).

Editor:  In reality,  the above article is proof of the weakness of the case against Trump.  Trump fired Comey with the approval and written opinion of Rosenstein,  the Deputy Director of the DOJ.  In that written opinion,  issues are named to support the termination without reference to the Russian Collusion issue.  

The Left is pushing the issue of "intent" because they do not have a case without intent.  And they find intent in Trump's searching for answers to the question,  "Can I fire Mueller."  

Never mind that Mueller and Rosenstein are Republicans,  they certainly are #NeverTrumpers  . . . . .   at least in the case of Mueller,  who has stacked the deck against Trump in his appointment of a majority of staffers who are Democrats,  and in some cases,  donors to Hillary's campaign.  

Understand that the firing of Comey has been given a written legal opinion and was supported by Rosenstein.  It would be impossible to prove "intent to obstruct" in this case.  

When you listen to the Left make their case,  remember that you are listening to folks who never refer to Rosenstein letter of support of the firing of Comey.  

Finally,  in the above article,  the author wants you to believe that intent alone and apart from a criminal action,  gets one convicted.  
That  entrepreneur stock broker,  was tried and convicted of an actual crime.  Intent is important but only if the man actually defrauded his clients.  He was not convicted for simply sitting in his office,  thinking about committing fraud. 

Case closed.  End of discussion. 

about Trump firing Mueller:

The story,  that Trump ordered the firing of Mueller,  is fiction.  He want to know if this was a realistic idea,  and was told "no"   . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  last June of 2017.  

That's right,  this is a story that is almost 8 months old.  

They are running out of bullets,  so they are reloading old ammunition.  

'Nuff said. 

A Mady Rose Update

The Left does not get that the tax cuts are real, and obvious.

Republicans have a surprising task when it comes to selling their tax overhaul to the public: convincing voters they've gotten a tax cut.
It may be hard for some to realize because, rather than sending out big, flashy rebate checks — as former President George W. Bush did with his 2001 tax cuts — Republicans are doling out the cuts piecemeal over the course of the year, as bumps in people's paychecks.
The average person earning between $50,000 and $75,000 will see a roughly $30 increase in their checks, assuming they're paid biweekly.  Read the full story here. 

Editor:  Wages are increasing because of the Trump cuts.  More businesses are hiring,  with Hispanics and Blacks realizing the lowest unemployment rates in 40 years.  Two million folks are off
the food stamp rolls.   If you made the same income this year as last,  and you have two children,  your tax burden will be reduced by more than $3000  (head of house deducts plus and extra $1000 per child tax credit.

This Politico story is all about postponing the obvious:  America waking up to the most significant tax reform bill in our life time.  

And America is going back to work,  despite the fact that Obama tried to convince us that 2% growth was the new 4% GDP growth rate.  

The Dems are in a panic.  They have no plans and are no longer the party of the working class.  Back inb 2011,  Barack abandoned the working class,  believing he had enough support from minorities and the illegal alien population to win every election into the foreseeable future. 

Actually,  when you stop to think about it,  we should be thankful for Barack.  He ruined the Democrat Party,  and exposed the futility of a political partnership with radicals  (Al Sharpton,  BLM,  the New Nation of Islam,  the Muslim Brotherhoop, the Green Movement).  

We are all sick and tired of these misfits.  Time for them to move to Canada or Europe,  or wherever they promise to go after losing an election.  

Another Fake News story. They will never quit.

New York Times: Trump Ordered Mueller Fired, but Backed Off When White House Counsel Threatened to Quit  

Editor:  This story is pure crap.  No truth to this at all.  Another story made up in the quite rooms at the Times  . . . .  knowing that some will believe it.  

Understand that if Trump is gone,  Pence becomes the President,  and he will follow the agenda of the Trumpster,  if not use him (Trump) as an adviser.  

Wouldn't that be funny.  Trump is impeached and becomes the National Adviser to the President as to the National Agenda.  

If Pence did that,  he would win the 2020 election hands down.  

Obama and Farrakhan were buds back in 2005. Here is proof.

The fact that Barack accepted the likes of Al Sharpton and this minister of hate,
Louis Farrakhan,  tells you all you need to know about the man's (Barack) values
and his willingness to compromise on issues related to Constitutional process.  

None of the Black leadership he ran with had any respect for the Constitution, 
and saw that as the "white man's document."  Most of his friends,  black or 
white,  hated capitalism,  the white man's god,  and, the history of our nation.

This is exactly why Barack spent two years apologizing for our country,  and did 
everything he could to violate Constitutional values and process.  In fact,  it was his 
mission to "fundamentally transform the United States of America,"  something he 
failed to do in glowing terms,  and nearly ruined a political party (the Dems) in
the process.

And NO ONE I know would have ever been got dead in such a photo and this.
