Trump`s agenda is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda, but It is the agenda of the American people

President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address on Tuesday and here is some of the highlights from the speech;

We meet tonight at a moment of unlimited potential. As we begin a new Congress, I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans.

Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us now, gathered in this great chamber, hoping that we will govern not as two parties but as one Nation.

The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda. It is the agenda of the American people.

Many of us campaigned on the same core promises: to defend American jobs and demand fair trade for American workers; to rebuild and revitalize our Nation’s infrastructure; to reduce the price of healthcare and prescription drugs; to create an immigration system that is safe, lawful, modern and secure; and to pursue a foreign policy that puts America’s interests first.

There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage to seize it. Victory is not winning for our party. Victory is winning for our country.

This year, America will recognize two important anniversaries that show us the majesty of America’s mission, and the power of American pride.

In June, we mark 75 years since the start of what General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the Great Crusade — the Allied liberation of Europe in World War II. On D-Day, June 6, 1944, 15,000 young American men jumped from the sky, and 60,000 more stormed in from the sea, to save our civilization from tyranny.

In the 20th century, America saved freedom, transformed science, and redefined the middle class standard of living for the entire world to see. Now, we must step boldly and bravely into the next chapter of this great American adventure, and we must create a new standard of living for the 21st century. An amazing quality of life for all of our citizens is within our reach.

We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before.

But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution — and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good.

Together, we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make.

We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.

Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness.

In just over 2 years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom — a boom that has rarely been seen before. We have created 5.3 million new jobs and importantly added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs — something which almost everyone said was impossible to do, but the fact is, we are just getting started.

Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue collar workers, who I promised to fight for, faster than anyone else. Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps. The United States economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world. Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded. Unemployment for Americans with disabilities has also reached an all-time low. More people are working now than at any time in our history — 157 million people at work.

We passed a massive tax cut for working families and doubled the child tax credit.

We virtually ended the estate, or death, tax on small businesses, ranches, and family farms.

We eliminated the very unpopular Obamacare individual mandate penalty — and to give critically ill patients access to life-saving cures, we passed right to try.

My Administration has cut more regulations in a short time than any other administration during its entire tenure. Companies are coming back to our country in large numbers thanks to historic reductions in taxes and regulations.

We have unleashed a revolution in American energy — the United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world. And now, for the first time in 65 years, we are a net exporter of energy.

Members of Congress: the State of our Union is strong. Our country is vibrant and our economy is thriving like never before.

On Friday, it was announced that we added another 304,000 jobs last month alone — almost double what was expected. 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. It just doesn’t work that way!

We must be united at home to defeat our adversaries abroad.

As we have seen, when we are united, we can make astonishing strides for our country. Now, Republicans and Democrats must join forces again to confront an urgent national crisis.

The Congress has 10 days left to pass a bill that will fund our Government, protect our homeland, and secure our southern border.

Now is the time for the Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.

As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States. We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection. I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for the tremendous onslaught.

This is a moral issue. The lawless state of our southern border is a threat to the safety, security, and financial well being of all Americans. We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens. This includes our obligation to the millions of immigrants living here today, who followed the rules and respected our laws. Legal immigrants enrich our Nation and strengthen our society in countless ways. I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally.

Tonight, I am asking you to defend our very dangerous southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country.

No issue better illustrates the divide between America’s working class and America’s political class than illegal immigration. Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.

The savage gang, MS-13, now operates in 20 different American States, and they almost all come through our southern border. Just yesterday, an MS-13 gang member was taken into custody for a fatal shooting on a subway platform in New York City. We are removing these gang members by the thousands, but until we secure our border they’re going to keep streaming back in.

Year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens.

I’ve gotten to know many wonderful Angel Moms, Dads, and families — no one should ever have to suffer the horrible heartache they have endured.

In the last 2 years, our brave ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of criminal aliens, including those charged or convicted of nearly 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 killings.

Special Agent Hernandez, please stand: We will always support the brave men and women of Law Enforcement — and I pledge to you tonight that we will never abolish our heroes from ICE.

In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall — but the proper wall never got built. I’ll get it built.

This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.

San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in the country. In response, and at the request of San Diego residents and political leaders, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost completely ended illegal crossings.

The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime — one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our Nation’s most dangerous cities. Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities.

Simply put, walls work and walls save lives. So let’s work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe.

No one has benefitted more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the new jobs created in the last year. All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before — and exactly one century after the Congress passed the Constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in the Congress than ever before.

As part of our commitment to improving opportunity for women everywhere, this Thursday we are launching the first ever Government-wide initiative focused on economic empowerment for women in developing countries.

To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount — reversing decades of calamitous trade policies.

We are now making it clear to China that after years of targeting our industries, and stealing our intellectual property, the theft of American jobs and wealth has come to an end.

Therefore, we recently imposed tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese goods — and now our Treasury is receiving billions of dollars a month from a country that never gave us a dime. But I don’t blame China for taking advantage of us — I blame our leaders and representatives for allowing this travesty to happen. I have great respect for President Xi, and we are now working on a new trade deal with China. But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.

Another historic trade blunder was the catastrophe known as NAFTA.

I have met the men and women of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, New Hampshire, and many other States whose dreams were shattered by NAFTA. For years, politicians promised them they would negotiate for a better deal. But no one ever tried — until now.

Our new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement — or USMCA — will replace NAFTA and deliver for American workers: bringing back our manufacturing jobs, expanding American agriculture, protecting intellectual property, and ensuring that more cars are proudly stamped with four beautiful words: made in the USA.

Tonight, I am also asking you to pass the United States Reciprocal Trade Act, so that if another country places an unfair tariff on an American product, we can charge them the exact same tariff on the same product that they sell to us.

Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America’s crumbling infrastructure.

I know that the Congress is eager to pass an infrastructure bill — and I am eager to work with you on legislation to deliver new and important infrastructure investment, including investments in the cutting edge industries of the future. This is not an option. This is a necessity.

The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs — and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

Already, as a result of my Administration’s efforts, in 2018 drug prices experienced their single largest decline in 46 years.

But we must do more. It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place. This is wrong, unfair, and together we can stop it.

I am asking the Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients. We should also require drug companies, insurance companies, and hospitals to disclose real prices to foster competition and bring costs down.

No force in history has done more to advance the human condition than American freedom. In recent years we have made remarkable progress in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Scientific breakthroughs have brought a once-distant dream within reach. My budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years. Together, we will defeat AIDS in America.

Tonight, I am also asking you to join me in another fight that all Americans can get behind: the fight against childhood cancer.

To help support working parents, the time has come to pass school choice for America’s children. I am also proud to be the first President to include in my budget a plan for nationwide paid family leave — so that every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child.

To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.

Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.

The final part of my agenda is to protect America’s National Security.

Over the last 2 years, we have begun to fully rebuild the United States Military — with $700 billion last year and $716 billion this year. We are also getting other nations to pay their fair share. For years, the United States was being treated very unfairly by NATO — but now we have secured a $100 billion increase in defense spending from NATO allies.

As part of our military build-up, the United States is developing a state-of-the-art Missile Defense System.

For example, decades ago the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities. While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF Treaty.

Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others, or perhaps we can’t — in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far.

And Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.

Two weeks ago, the United States officially recognized the legitimate government of Venezuela, and its new interim President, Juan Guaido.

We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom — and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.

Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.

One of the most complex set of challenges we face is in the Middle East.

Our approach is based on principled realism — not discredited theories that have failed for decades to yield progress. For this reason, my Administration recognized the true capital of Israel — and proudly opened the American Embassy in Jerusalem.

As a candidate for President, I pledged a new approach. Great nations do not fight endless wars.

My Administration has acted decisively to confront the world’s leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran.

To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. And last fall, we put in place the toughest sanctions ever imposed on a country.

We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people. We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism, or those who spread its venomous creed. With one voice, we must confront this hatred anywhere and everywhere it occurs.

We must keep America first in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must always keep faith in America’s destiny — that one Nation, under God, must be the hope and the promise and the light and the glory among all the nations of the world!

Civil rights movements are a worldwide series of political movements for equality before the law

President Donald Trump made an unannounced trip to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington on Monday. Around midmorning Monday, Trump tweeted a link to a proclamation he signed last week declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

«Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,» the president tweeted.

 

Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated in 1968, but it took 15 years to create the federal Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Congress passed the holiday legislation in 1983, which was then signed into law by President Ronald Reagan.

A compromise moving the holiday from Jan. 15, Kings birthday, which was considered too close to Christmas and new years, to the third Monday in January helped overcome opposition to the law.

In 2000, Utah became the last state to recognize MLK Day by name, renaming its Human Rights Day state holiday. King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

While many states now observe the holiday, some did not name the day after King. For example, in New Hampshire, the holiday was known as «Civil Rights Day» until 1999, when the State Legislature voted to change the name of the holiday to Martin Luther King Day.

A lot of people around the world share Kings idea of «dreams», but some people on this planet think they could kill the dream by slaying the dreamer, but as the example of Martin Luther Kings life shows; People like that are always wrong.

The civil rights movement was a decades-long movement with the goal of enforcing constitutional and legal rights for African-Americans that other Americans already enjoyed. Various groups and organized social movements accomplish the goals of ending legalized racial segregation, disenfranchisement and discrimination in the United States.

People around the world have been marching on the MLK Day every year the last 50 years, and now we can see similar movements are happening in France. Some of the Yellow Vest protesters in France are Anti-fascists and Anti-racists. You have to be blind to not see that France have the same challenge even today, fifty years later.

Mike Pence quoted King on Sunday during an interview with CBS. «One of my favorite quotes from Dr King was, «Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy,» Pence said. «You think of how he changed America, he inspired us to change through the legislative process.»

Civil rights movements are a worldwide series of political movements for equality before the law, that peaked in the 1960`s. The main aim of the successful civil rights movement and other social movements for civil rights included ensuring that the rights of all people where and are equally protected by the law.

The safety of the people shall be the highest law

Emergency! Emergency! People in France are putting their yellow vests on because they are in an emergency situation. This is a yellow vest that everybody have in their own car in case of an accident. The yellow vest protests started in November last year because the authorities was planning to rise the cost of fuels, which is something most people in France can`t afford.

President Donald Trump doesn`t wear a yellow vest, but he is also in an emergency situation. He recently announced that he could “call a national emergency” to build a wall on the border with Mexico. Is that really a national emergency?

(Click the picture to enlarge)

A morning consult poll show that 42% of all voters belive there is a major crisis at the border while 72% of the Republicans agree. Former president Barrack Obama said it is a crisis at the border and so did Chuck Schumer. But now, most of the Democrats are against it.

Mr Trump said in a speech that more people die at the border than American lost in the Vietnam war. So, the situation at the border can be described as a war zone. Worse than the Vietnam war. Isn`t that an emergency situation?

A state of emergency is a situation in which a government is empowering to perform actions that it would normally not be permitted. A government can declare such state during a disaster, civil unrest, or armed conflict.

Such declaration alerts citizens to change their normal behaviour and orders government agencies to implement emergency plans.

In the United Kingdom, only the British Sovereign, on the advice of the Privy Council is able to proclaim emergency regulations under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 in case of any seriously fatal threats to their human welfare, their human society, and their environment, such as warfare or terrorism.

A state of emergency was last invoked in the U.K in 1974 by Prime Minister Edward Heath in response to increasing Industrial action.

Industrial action (or job action – North American English) is a temporary show of dissatisfaction by employees, especially a strike or slowdown or working to rule to protest against bad working conditions or low pay and to increase bargaining power with the employer and intended to force the employer to improve them by reducing productivity in a workplace.

Industrial action may take place in the context of a labour dispute or may be meant to effect political or social change. This form of communication tends to be their only means to voice their concerns about safety and benefits.

On December 10, 2015, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency due to flooding and landslides caused by heavy rains. The U.S states of South Caroline, North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Maryland declared states of emergency on September 8, 2018 in advance of Hurricane Florence.

Another ongoing national emergency, declared after the September 11 attacks, authorizes the president to retain or reactivate military personnel beyond their normal term of use. Former President George W. Bush and Barrack Obama, and current President Donald Trump, have chosen to extend the duration of the proclamation each year following its original declaration. Currently, the proclamation will remain in effect until September 14, 2019, unless it is extended again by the president.

President Trump are doing everything he can to protect the American people. He cut taxes, boost the stock market, lowering the unemployment rate and increase wages. He want to build the wall because so many people die at the border with Mexico.

There are drugs, criminals, rape and murders at the border, and this makes it an emergency situation for Mr Trump. He sounds like Marcus Tullius Cicero at the Roman Empire who said the safety of the people shall be the highest law.

Unfortunately, the same can not be said about Macron. He`s brain seems to be in Brussels and not in France. He should be more Nationalist like Trump and Ghandi and protect his own citizens. Rising fuel costs is not the right medicine for the people in France with an unemployment rate of 9,1%.

Don`t blame on Macron for everything because the record low of the French unemployment is 7,2%, and personal income tax rate is 45%.

Salus populi suprema lex esto (latin: the health, welfare, good, salvation, felicity) of the people should be the supreme law, Let the good (or safety) of the people be the supreme (or highest) law», or «The welfare of the people shall be the supreme law») is a maxim or principle found in Cicero`s De Legibus (book III, part III, sub. VIII).

The phrase is the state motto of Missouri, accepted, like many other states, as an element of its state seal. Macron has probably something to think of.

President Emmanual Macron criticized President Donald Trump for being a Nationalist but should take a lesson from him

French President Emmanuel Macron criticized the U.S President Donald Trump a few weeks ago. Macron said Trump was a Nationalist, and Mainstream Media (MSM) followed up to say that Hitler was also a Nationalist. Wow, what a comparison.

What journalists in the MSM is not telling people is that even Mahatma Ghandi was a Nationalist. The National Movement in India and the role of Mahatma Ghandi and Non-Violence is an example. Employing nonviolent nationalist movements as his weapon, Ghandii stirred Indian men and woman to «fight» for independence without shedding blood. But Ghandi was also a populist. Just like Trump.

Ghandi considered himself one, and his mission was primarily the establishment of a free, independent, culturally distinct Indian nation. He used to say that “nonviolent nationalism is a necessary condition of corporate or civilized life.” (As opposed to violent nationalism).

In the book “Autobigraphy of a Yogi” the writer, Paramahansa Yogananda, quotes Ghandi`s own words on nationalism:

“I call myself a nationalist but my natioanlism is as wide as the universe; it embraces all nations. My nationalism includes the prosperity of all nations. I do not want my India to raise on from the ashes of other nations. I do not want India to ever exploit any human. I want a strong India able to transfuse its strength to other nations.Today, none of the European countries does this; they do not transfer power to other nations.”

Ghandi was also a populist. Who know that? Populist rule is bad for democracy, but despite that, we can see that populists are being voted into office in country after country. Narendra Modi win elections when the institutionalized ties between non-populist parties and voters decay.

But there is a big difference between the populism we see outside of the U.S than inside. Trumps populism is good populism while many of the other populists are bad. Trumps plan is “America First,” and that`s why he is cutting taxes, made a lot of reforms and negotiated better trade deals.

There is no doubt that European Union is important, but at what cost? Take a look at President Macron. The man who talked about Trump`s Nationalism in his speech while MSM followed up with Nazi stories.

But who is in real trouble here? Rebels in Paris blasts Mr Macron for his gas tax hikes. The opposite of what Trump did. He cuted the taxes and the U.S economy is booming. The U.S unemployment is low while it remain high in France.

This is not the fist time I`m writing about the protesters in France. This is something that has been going on for years and decades. France need to do something to make a change, but do Macron have something to learn from Trump? It remains to see.

But it seems like Macron is doing the opposite of Trump who are a Nationalist and a Patriot. Trumpis doing what he can to protect his own citizens. Its all about "America First" and he wants to Make America Great again. Whats wrong with that?

President Macron is a part of the European Union which is driven by faceless bureaucrats. A collaboration the United Kingdom wants to leave. A collaboration that communist Jeremy Corbyn want to join again. Done by a second referendum.

But Paris rioters steal police rifle and torch cars while they are protesting fuel taxes, but the demonstrations are also an indication of growing animosity toward Macron. President Trump is on his own people`s side but President Macron seems to be against his own people with bad decisions.

People in France believe that Macron is serving the interest of the EU and not the French workers. A President should represent the people, “We the People,” but the French protest movement, known as jilets jaunes (yellow vests), are protesting against its own President and the state of France`s economy as well.

President Macrons popularity is low and will be so for quite some time, because he has given no indication he will bend to the peoples demand. This will give Macron`s political competitors like Marine Le Pen a huge advantage.

Trump had tremendous success and gained 3 seats in the 2018 mid-term election

Two days before the midterm election, Norwegian journalists said President Trump admitted that he will lose. The day after the election, the same group of people said Mr Trump was looking sad. They also said he tweeted he was happy despite the fact that he lost seats. There is no secret that you can count Trump supporters on one finger in Norway. They are mocking him every single day.

They often like to refer to CNN. The channel Mr Trump call Fake News. They are also very similar because about 98 percent is negative news. All the time. Every single day. If there are some good news, they makes it look bad.

 

 

It is something fundamentally wrong when everybody is on one side. Everybody on one side means there is no balance. Ask some kids on the streets what they think about Mr Trump and I`m pretty shure they will say something negative. This is indoctrination.

There is one good thing going on right now. Some people wont listen to the MSM anymore. They dont belive in it. This is why Trump and the Republicans had tremendous success in the midterm election. It also proves that the Dems` Russia story is a hoax.

MSM predicted a blue wave on Tuesday, but what we saw was the 2016 election on repeat. People said yes to Mr Trump. Again. Maybe they will come up with a new Russia story, but it wouldn`t work.

The Russia hoax reveals how persons within the FBI and Obamas Justice Department worked improperly to help Clinton and defeat Trump in the 2016 presidential election. We havent heard the last word in this case, and here comes the midterm election in.

To those who belive that Mr Trump was a big loser on Tuesday, have a listen to this; Obama lost -63 seats in the house and -6 seats in the senate in his first midterm election. That`s -69 seats.

Trump lost -27 seats in the house but gained +3 seats in the senate. That`s only -24 seats.

The presidents party has lost an average of 37 seats since the end of World War Two, and historically the party in the White House has lost a badly in midterms, especially when a presidents job-approval rating was below 50 percent.

In other words; the 2018 midterm election was great for Donald Trump.

According to Marketwatch, it`s only the third time in the past 100 years that the party holding the White House has gained seats in the Senate in a mid-term election while losing seats in the House.

The same split outcome also occurred under John F. Kennedy in 1962.
