Flip the Coin Over
There have been a lot of comments about seeing things from the other point of view. So today I took a couple of hours first to watch President Trump’s 2nd Annual State of the Union in its entirety. It lasted almost a full 90 minutes.
I listened as President Trump gave a powerful address to a joint session of Congress and the American people. In true Trump style he didn’t mince words. He began by honoring a number of individuals who have suffered greatly for the sake of freedom; endured judicial injustices of a broken system being able to reenter as productive members of society; survived cancer and deal with the pain of great loss.
He recapped many of his successes; called failed policy decisions as he saw them; gave his solutions for success and announced that the State of the Union was Strong!
Throughout the speech he called on Congress to come to the table of compromise to find a workable solution to keep the government open, enhance border security for what he has termed a crisis on our southern border and fund a physical barrier or wall to restrain the hordes of illegal immigrants, dangerous drugs and prevent human trafficking.
That being said it was a great speech, one of the best I’ve witnessed by far. The response by seated Democrats in their white garb, likened to the white gowns and hoods of the KKK coupled with their body language and facial gestures made it plain their contempt for the President and his agenda. There were a few times when one or more Democrats would join in the applause after the President made it a point to call out the fact that more women are in business than in the past, and that more women are serving in the Congress than ever before. Yeah and they didn’t even notice that the President used an age old trick of flattery which they couldn’t resist.
I’ll admit there were also a few times when specific House and Senate members were called out by their recent rantings about giving Socialism a chance in America. Not going to happen under his watch. In fact the President’s statement about America will never be a socialist nation was clear and to the point.
Afterwards I hesitated but then I forwarded the recording to Democratic Party Responder Stacey Abrams of Georgia. I thought it was only fair since her speech was said to be about 10 minutes in length. I’ve see some of the memes of her and her crowd, then about her hard working family and her dad walking home in the rain with no coat after working overtime and being picked up in the family car. Without more details my first question was if he was working overtime why did he have to walk home when he had a fully functional car at home?
So yes I wanted to hear more from her and she provided important details about her working class parents, the life lessons they were taught as children. She even gave more details on why her dad was walking 30 miles home in the rain with no coat. He had given his coat to a homeless man he encountered along the way home. He said he knew that man would be alone, but that his family would be coming for him. He seemed to be a good man doing something for another without expectation of anything in return.
I’ll be honest I didn’t listen to her entire speech as it represented the response of the Democratic Party to the Presidents SOTU. I attempted to endure as she repeatedly blamed President Trump for shutting down the government and placing federal workers on furlough without pay, playing a political stunt. She continued stating that because of the President and the Republicans there were many companies closing and moving out of the country, placing thousands of Americans out of work. (Quite the contrary to what the President actually said in his address). Instead of offering actual points worthy of compromise to insure that America stayed open and workers stayed on the job, her entire point was to simply blame, blame, and blame Republicans.
Quite frankly I couldn’t sit and listen to her ramblings any longer. She is an educated woman, a lawyer and former Georgia State Legislator, who ran a failed campaign for Governor and even said she supported illegal immigrants to vote in elections. Typical of the Democratic Party, supporting Illegals over citizens and trying to hedge their bet as a political stunt that goes against the Constitution. So I shut her off in mid-sentence.
Usually there are two sides to every coin and at least two sides to every story. Except when it’s a Democrat Story, then there is only one side that matters and everyone else is a racist.
It has been two years since President Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States and the entire time he has reached out to Democrats and Republicans alike attempting to move this nation forward with an America First mentality. All I’ve seen so far is what amounts to a mental “Fart” from a majority of Congress.
Career lifetime politicians are worried they are going to have their power and prestige taken away by President Trump who has repeatedly campaigned on “Draining the Swamp”. Middle of the road politicians may see an opportunity to claim some of the power. Freshmen politicians of the 116th Congress are what we call “wet behind the ears” and don’t know or understand the inner workings of Congress. Several have stepped up their game in an attempt to display their mental prowess or their superior knowledge. For them might I suggest that you go back into your law school days of not too long ago and look up the Miranda Warning? What does it say vs what does it mean and when to apply it in the Congressional setting.
This last part is for American voters. We have a real situation in Congress. There has been a resurgence of legislators who are pushing socialistic and communistic ideologies, favor the radical Islamic Sharia Law over the Rule of Law backed by the Constitution of the United States. They are not compatible. The Constitution is based on Biblical theology and Islam is based on a manmade religion of domination. It is highly likely and verified that a minimum of 100 legislators out of 535 have been influenced, are working with or are currently agents of Socialism and Communism inside the 116th Congress.
If American citizens have not learned the lessons of U. S. and World history; have not studied the Constitution to ensure a clear understanding of the Bill of Rights and the Amendments that guarantee those rights. And if American citizens continue sticking their heads in the proverbial sand, there will come a time within the next 6 years where many of those rights will be terminated for lack of interest. Should that happen there will be no getting them back?
Voting is a right of American citizenship, as is public service at local, state or federal level. It has been said that if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. The Constitution guarantees certain rights for all citizens of the United States. Everyone else is here as a guest or as an illegal alien and there are no guaranteed rights for them. They have the right and responsibility of obeying all U. S. law, facing jail time or deportation. Anyone who enables, encourages or facilitates another person to commit a crime in the USA is also a lawbreaker and subject to being prosecuted as such.
There are many who serve in the U. S. military, the ready reserve or state National Guard or are continually on standby to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES, both foreign and domestic. The oath we took has no expiration.
We are patriots who love our nation, its anthem and the Flag of the United States of America and Almighty God who created us all. We are in a real world war on terrorism and against evil.
I love this quote, “It’s a very imperfect world, and you can’t always choose your friends. That’s life. But you can never fail to recognize your enemies.” – President Donald J. Trump
