    https://www.npr.org/2019/02/05/690345256/fact-check-trumps-state-of-the-union-address That State of the Union was the worst I’ve ever seen.

    That State of the Union was the best I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen them all since 1963. (admittedly I was a teen when I saw JFK speak, but I never forgot it…he was an excellent orator and almost as good as Donald Trump).

    A snap CNN poll shows 76% of speech viewers feel positive about President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday evening.  Just look at this:   59 percent very positive, 17 percent somewhat positive, 23 percent negative.  The 23% represent the devout, and now bewildered, Trump haters.

    Dem Congresswoman Threatens Teenage Conservative, Says He Should ‘Learn Her Name’ and Be Afraid of Her

    Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez went after conservative teenager CJ Pearson on Tuesday, saying that he should “learn her name” and that he’s “right to be afraid of us” — referring to herself and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    During the State of the Union address, Pearson, a 16-year-old political commentator, noted on Twitter that Ocasio-Cortez was talking through President Donald Trump’s “entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way.”

    The 65-year-old congresswoman responded to the teenager’s seemingly harmless tweet, despite not being tagged in it, saying that her and Ocasio-Cortez “are the future of the country.” She added, “and you’re right to be afrad of us. But you should learn my name.”

    Velázquez was promptly ratioed, with only 921 people “liking” her tweet and nearly 5,000 people responding — mostly in defense of Pearson.

    Pearson responded sharply, by saying “I’m sorry if I bruised your ego but genuinely, I really don’t know you are. Do less tweeting and more work, Congresswoman. Maybe, then, more Americans will know your name. Be blessed.”

    Unlike her tweet, well-spoken Georgia teen’s response garnered nearly 12,000 “likes.”

    “It’s a shame to see elected officials seeking to instill fear into those they’re supposedly supposed to ‘represent’. It is increasingly evident that Democrats are the party of hate and division,” Pearson said when asked about the tweets.

    .Now, thanks to the well written well planned SOTU speech, when Pelosi and her cabal refuse to negotiate, they will look like the assholes they are, finally proving to the American people that the interests of the Democrat party are not the interests of the people.
    In last nights CBS poll 72 percent approved of Trump’s immigration proposals. No one wants to eliminate immigration, okay? Everyone should want to eliminate illegal immigration. Do you really want to open borders to unvetted strangers? If they have a record of murder, trafficking (drugs/people), rape, theft, terrorism etc. do you really want them anywhere near you or your loved ones? If you do, the dumbing down and propaganda has worked.  There is no ethnicity without its monsters, so let us keep the monsters out.

    As for investigations, where is the investigation into the Clinton Foundation pay-for-play scheme, or the fraudulent Haiti assistance, or the breach of national security with ms. pantsuits emails, or FISA abuse, or Obamas Iran deal or so many others?

    from SOTU

    “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States — and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations. If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” Trump said.
    The camera immediately panned in on Rep. Adam Schiff’s face — Schiffless looked like a deer in headlights.
    Schiff is a liar and a leaker. In a sane world, he would be thrown off the House Intel Committee, at minimum, or at least investigated.

    . I cannot wait for the other shoe to drop and Mueller comes back with the report. Time for Trump nightmare to end and his supporters to see they were duped

    BDS

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)  applauds the U.S. Senate for adopting the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act (S.1), which contains critical pro-Israel provisions.

    “This was a clarifying vote for millions of pro-Israel Americans.   Christians United for Israel (CUFI) extends its thanks and gratitude to the overwhelming majority of senators of both parties who voted in favor of this legislation,” said CUFI founder and chairman Pastor John Hagee.

    “At the same time, we are dismayed with the extremists who went on the record in opposition to the military aid package to Israel and common-sense steps to combat the vile and anti-Semitic BDS movement”.  Pastor Hagee

    The anti-semitic senators who voted against the bill included:
    Cory Booker (D-NJ)
    Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
    Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
    Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
    Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
    Chris Murphy (D-CT)
    Tom Carper (D-DE)
    Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)
    Jack Reed (D-RI)
    Chris Van Hollen (D-MD)
    Tim Kaine (D-VA)
    Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
    Dick Durbin (D-IL)
    Tom Udall (D-NM)
    Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
    Jeff Merkley (D-OR)
    Tammy Baldwin (D-WS)
    Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
    Mazie Hirono (D-HI)
    Brian Schatz (D-HI)
    Rand Paul (R-KY)

    Only 1 bigoted R…1 too many.

    Democrats call on Justin Fairfax to resign https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/08/politics/dems-justin-fairfax-resign/index.html

    Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) called on Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D-VA) to step down after a second accusation of sexual assault was leveled against him.
    “The multiple detailed allegations against the Lt. Gov. of Virginia are deeply troubling,” Booker wrote on Twitter Friday evening. “They are serious, credible, and corroborated by others. It is no longer appropriate for him to serve. He should resign.”   Mr. Booker is right.

    And if blackface is unacceptable, then ‘Coonman’ Northam and blackface Herring are gone as well.

    Welcome Governor of Virginia Kirk Cox (R), current House Speaker.

    What a horrible, Un-Christian tagline for a state that loves loves saying it’s so religious.
