President Trump Delivers the State of the Union Address (2019) Posted on February 6, 2019 by Eeyore — 22 Comments ↓ Share this:FacebookTwitter
From 1hr, 4 min. I watched.
The witch in white sits on his shoulder like a bad idea. You see her mind pacing in its cage. When she is forced to clap, her hands are made of lead.
America will never be a socialist country, declares the President. The camera finds Bernie scowling. The witch claps because she must. She is a socialist and a hypocrite because she won’t admit it. America does not support late-term abortion, declares the President. America has pulled out of the nukes agreement because the Russians have been cheating for years. Simply no choice, says the President. The audience believes him. I believe him.
One time I remember walking into a room where two people were talking. I said hello. What I didn’t know was that they were fighting. It was a married couple with two children. They had built a life that was crumbling. Their marriage was dissolving. Their bitterness was palpable. They turned to me, and on me. I had done nothing but say hello. Their misdirected animus was about them, not me.
The President commemorates heroes, and reunites a soldier with a man who was in a Nazi concentration camp. Those old men must be amazed that after all these years here they are. The President acknowledges a hero who took seven bullets saving people in Pittsburgh.
When Donald Trump walked in on America that election night in 2016 he walked in on a bad marriage. The electorate had been abused for years and were getting fed up. The electorate are the children. It was the grownups in the House that were fighting. They poisoned the waters. Both were selfish and mean and out for themselves, not for the kids. When PT appeared all he said was, “What about the kids?” and they turned on him. Viciously and ever since. Stay out of this, they say. Socialists always say you don’t understand the nuances of socialism. Maybe the truth is too deep for you because you don’t have a university education, or because you’re a stupid farmer. Then, while they are busy being sophisticated, the kids say, “Hey, this isn’t working.” And the grownups are mad because truth hurts.
Adults can become so wrapped up in themselves that they forget how smart and observant their kids are. The kids knew the marriage was over long ago. The socialists under Clinton were winning. The socialists under Obama had won. The whole thing was rotting. Enough, said the electorate.
What I saw of the speech I thought was really good. Whatever happens in the future, however, is up to the electorate. PT can only speak for them and their obvious truths.
Thank you Johnny, yes the marriage is broken and the Deep State on both sides of the aisle are so tied up in their quest for personal power that they refuse to think of anyone besides themselves. They are willing to tear down the nation if we don’t let them rule as rule as absolute monarchs, this problem isn’t limited to the US but right now it is the problem in the US that will determine the future of humanity. I keep seeing talking heads that say that President Trump must give and close the deal. How do you close a deal with people who refuse to talk? Who say it is my way or the highway? Who are so arrogant they think they are ordained by the God they don’t believe in to rule the world?
We are at a turning point of history when we discover what the world is going to look like for a century or two, We are being ask to step up and claim the title of Greatest Generation for ourselves, I know none of us ask for this choice or fight but we have no choice but to step up and defend freedom for the sake of our descendants.
OT: The roads and parking lots are sheets of ice with more coming in this afternoon, tonight and tomorrow. I’ll bet that the grocery stores have a lot of empty shelves.
We’re just getting your freezing rain now. Started in the last hour. See? Different countries, same problem! Lol.
Hopefully you can do what I am planning on and stay inside until the icemelt cleans the streets.
OK – read in the tone of voice of: well at least YOUR family had a cardboard box to live in…
Ohhh, lucky you! At least you live where it is warm enough for icemelt to work!!!
I didn’t say or mean anything like that and resent you saying that I did.
Xanthippa has been colonized by British sardonic wit.
“OK –” (he has thrown the cricket ball in the air and distance himself from the following statement) “read in the tone of voice of: well at least YOUR family had a cardboard box to live in… (knocking it into the absurdity of Monty Python territory)
“Ohhh, lucky you! At least you live where it is warm enough for icemelt to work!!!” (Say this, while mincing like a Public Schoolboy).
This is called humOUR this side of the Pond. (‘Our’ is deliberately used because all we laugh at our own jokes).
On behalf of the British Commonwealth I apologize for this behaviOUR from such a Subject and a run and cold shower is what he deserves.
I don’t find much of Monty Python funny even with all the physical cues to translate British English.
(I don’t get ANY of the jokes of gangsta rap because I don’t understand ebionics.)
“Ohhh, lucky you! At least you live where it is warm enough for icemelt to work!!!”
If frozen icemelt is your biggest worry, then you’re living in the lap of luxury.
As a kid, I had to get up in the morning at ten o’clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing “Hallelujah.”
… you try and tell the young people today that… and they won’t believe ya’.
That were nothing…
Watching your parents fight has to be miserable for the kids.
They might choose a parent, then cling to that one no matter what. For dear life.
They’ll be vicious little ankle-biters. Maybe forever.
Poor prognosis for these kids,
A great speech at anytime. Sad that the Democrats hate Americans so much.
They hate the idea of freedom, they hate every nation that is even semi free because we aren’t letting them dictate every thing we do every minute of our lives.
It was a great speech, Like the one he gave in Poland and at the UN.
It was even more remarkable considering the pressure he’s under. A lesser man would have crumbled long ago. He’s the right man for the job. God bless him and God bless America!
Comes the time comes the man. In times of crisis people step up and often they are people who surprise eveyone.
If I was the Democrats I would be looking at the 2020 election as a big whirring meat grinder waiting for me to walk right in despite the fact that the mainstream media is still completely biased in their favor and still ready to fight to the death for them. Did you see the ghastly look on Bernie Sanders’ face during the speech? He knows… He knows that selling outright socialism to the American People is going to flop horribly, especially in light of the Venezuela situation contrasting with the American economic figures. The Democrats lowered their masks inadvisably and revealed themselves as blatant “socialists” and Bernie could plainly see that they had made a huge mistake. People may be brainwashed but there’s no way they want to turn the USA into Cuba or Venezuela. The Dems have fucked up royally and they know it. Now watch as they fall all over themselves pretending to be JFK/Reagan as they avoid the “S” word like it was a dead fish and make speeches about this great land from sea to shining sea and pretend to be Republicans while calling Trump a madman. They are going to get squished…
Unless…the economic downturn is as severe as predicted and mass hardship compels the Free Shit Army to demand expanded welfare (socialism).
That is what I am afraid of, if it hits after the 2020 election we have a chance, if before 2020 it is Katy bar the door.
Count on a BIG downturn.
Manipulated, over and above compound cyclicals to be a doozy.

I didnt know that suffragettes were baby murderers.
Frankly [waves at Frank], I’m amazed that no one else caught Trump’s marvelously concealed dig at Islam.
Like Pope Benedict, he merely quoted someone else’s words. In this case they were those of Dwight Eisenhower, one of America’s last true warrior presidents. Doing so, Trump summoned up the self-sacrifice and tremendous debt this nation has to its WWII veterans (i.e., Private First Class Joseph Riley, Staff Sergeant Irving Locker and Sergeant Herman Zeitchiek).
Just before asking these deserving men to stand and be recognized, Trump brilliantly slid the blade between Islam’s ribs by quoting Ike thusly:
I wouldn’t bet a plugged nickel on a single (or married) person reading this not recalling the incandescent rage and overall general $hïtstørm that spewed from Muslim tripe volcanoes about Bush 2.0’s supremely naïve, “This crusade … this war on terrorism” post-9-11 speechifying.
Despite how Benedict eventually fell on his sword over the Regensburg address, methinks Trump will not be similarly disposed. In fact, I’d wager that Trump has a few shots in the locker ready to drop on any frothing zealot retarded enough to try and publicly crucify him for quoting the Nazi vanquisher.
If anything, Trump tied an irritatingly victorious American red ribbon around Islam, terrorism, Nazis, Antisemitic genocide, and the European invasion (Which one? Your pick) with his indisputably magnanimous gesture and few moments of historical reference.
It’s beyond gratifying to imagine all of the dental billing that resulted from Muslims everywhere grinding their teeth in fury over Trump’s “Crusade” sideswipe. A more demure, stingingly backhanded, drive-by, Presidential toss-off is difficult to imagine.
