    ... Unfortunately, most Americans are not aware of such a state. No, it is not the 51st state in the Union; instead, it is a satellite substate within every legitimate state of the Union. For example, in the state of California alone, there are about 1.2 million children born out of "tourism" of pregnant illegal aliens. These are official hospital data. For comparison, the population of the legitimate state of Wyoming is about 600,000 people. That is, inside the state of California, there is a substate — the State of Illegalia — whose population is twice the state of Wyoming....

    A Heroic American State of the Union Address President Trump divides those who believe in America from those who don’t. February 6, 2019 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. “America will never be a socialist country,” President Trump boldly told a room of socialists dressed in their Klan whites. The State of the Union began with a living history lesson. It ended with a call to greatness. The American past, present and future appeared before a weary nation, from the...
  • Trump's approval rating among likely voters soars to his best in 23 MONTHS at 52 per cent

    Donald Trump's job approval rating among likely U.S. voters hit 52 per cent on Monday in a daily tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, the polling organization he uses most frequently to promote himself. That number is his highest since March 6, 2017, less than seven weeks after he took office. It has been even longer since Trump's 'strongly approve' and 'strongly disapprove' numbers weren't under water. They were even at 39 per cent on Monday. Overall, 47 per cent of likely voters disapprove of Trump's Oval Office performance. That's a low water mark since November 2, 2018. Monday's numbers...

    How many times have we heard a politician, opinion blatherskite, news reader or random friend say that “so and so leaving” means that there is no longer an adult in the room with President Donald J. Trump. In the last week or so, that has been blown out of the water. We, those of us with common sense, knew it was never true. Dems have proven now that Trump “IS” the adult in the room. Nancy Pelosi was proud of how her charges behaved. And, the left says that Nancy is the adult in the room: Nancy Pelosi Nope. Just...

    This year, the hit HBO series The Sopranos is celebrating its twentieth anniversary of launching. If you miss Tony Soprano like I do, don’t worry, there’s a new mob boss on the scene. She’s just like Tony too, except for the likability, believability, respect, and humor. So, actually, she’s nothing like New Jersey’s favorite don at all, except maybe in her delusional brain. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) is more of a typical liberal Democrat nowadays. She talks tough but does nothing for the betterment of America. You know, dress like me, think like me, and do what we say, or...

    As soon as President Trump finished his State of the Union address Tuesday night, The Washington Post deployed its fact-checkers to blunt any positive narrative that might come of the President’s unifying speech. “President Trump’s State of the Union speech once again was chock-full of stretched facts and dubious figures,” the article begins, employing the standard terminology used by liberal reporters when they want to accuse the President of lying, but can’t find any actual falsehoods in his remarks. While most of their so-called fact checks were opinionated and/or arbitrary in nature — for instance, they waved away President Trump’s...

    If you are of the mind that Pres Trump is to blame for everything wrong in politics, then last week was a very bad week for you. The evidence begins with Trump’s very good SOTU speech....he was alternately conciliatory toward Democrats and ruthless in contrasting policies. Reckless in rhetoric and resistance, Dems make themselves vulnerable to charges that they support open borders, socialism and infanticide. It doesn’t help that a lasting image of the SOTU speech was the women-in-white brigade scowling throughout, rising enthusiastically only to celebrate the president’s recognition of them.For more proof, consider the spectacles Dems created......in Virginia,...

    The Democrat leadership's politically correct, virtue-signaling selection of failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to be their mouthpiece to rebut President Donald Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night seemed odd to me, so I decided to dig a little. What I've found has me wondering even more why they would pick such a person to be the face of the Democratic Party in a national broadcast with a huge audience. Increasingly, it seems that the Dems have a fondness for phonies and failures, making it seem as if the Democrat leadership is unaware of that old wisdom, "Put...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 2/8/19 | J. D. Heyes
    When the so-called “mainstream media” (MSM) created the concept of ‘fact-checking’ it at least seemed admirable on the surface and, for that matter, a job that was naturally suited to a free press charged with comforting the afflicted and holding those in power to account. But after some years it’s become obvious that the MSM was never really interested in checking facts — that is, not all facts espoused by all people in power. Democrats don’t get fact-checked, at least not with the same ‘vengeance’the MSM reserves for Republicans and conservatives…and POTUS Donald Trump. While our president does, at times,...
  • From Obama to Trump, media coverage of State of the Union differs greatly

    FOXNews ^ | 2/7/19 | Brian Flood
    The drastic difference between mainstream media coverage of President Trump’s recent State of the Union address and those delivered by President Barack Obama appears to represent another instance of imbalance. Praise for the Obama-era addresses was often glowing with positivity. In 2009, then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann called Obama’s speech “forceful” and “energized,” before tossing it to colleague Rachel Maddow. She, in turn, called the address “a fascinating balance of combative and reconciling.” That same evening, Chris Matthews called it a feel-good speech,” asking potential critics, “How do you come out against feeling good?” ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos compared Obama’s 2010...

    <p>Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was a masterpiece—for his purposes. Two chaotic years into his term, Mr. Trump appeared presidential for seemingly the first time and dramatically advanced his chances for re-election in 2020. I am speaking of perceptions—of how the unusual Mr. Trump plays in the public mind. To call the speech a masterpiece will strike his enemies as preposterous. On the other hand, progressives are sometimes unreliable judges of the country’s moods. Think of November 2016.</p>

Airing on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, PBS, CNN, CNNe, FOX Business, FOX News Channel and MSNBC in the 9 – 10 PM ET slot, the third longest SOTU in history topped Trump’s first official address to Congress in 2018 by over 1 million viewers.

    Progressives have embraced the term, and that’s a dangerous mistake. In his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump was entirely right to reject “new calls to adopt socialism in our country.” He was right to add that “America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion,” and to “renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.” Yet to many Americans, the idea of socialism seems to have growing appeal. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the nation’s most influential new voices, is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Senator Bernie Sanders, a...

    The political agenda of the left is the problem, not the solution. My fellow Americans: Given that the Democratic Party chose to select a recently defeated political candidate to give a response to the president’s State of the Union address because she is black and a woman, I feel I should also step up and give my response. Although I have not recently lost a governor’s contest, I am black and I am a woman. Democrats want Americans, particularly minority Americans, to believe that a left-wing agenda is what they need and what will define America’s future. I am here...

    President Donald Trump gave his second State of the Union address on Tuesday night. The speech was well received by viewers, but not by Democrats in the audience.

    When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi withdrew her original State of the Union invitation, preventing President Trump from delivering the address as scheduled on January 29, she was probably surprised when he responded with such calm forbearance: "This is her prerogative. I will do the address when the shutdown is over." By the time Trump finished the rescheduled speech Tuesday evening, she no doubt understood that her petty political ploy had been a blunder. Trump, being no mean showman, had long since realized that the highly publicized delay would increase public interest in the speech - and that is precisely what...
