  • Veteran Asks if He Can Take Maxine Waters's Empty Seat at the State of the Union

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is one of four Democrats in Congress to announce she'd be boycotting President Trump's first State of the Union address.Why? Because Trump is "the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth," she told MSNBC last week. If Martin Luther King, Jr. was still alive, he'd be marching against the current president, Waters has also declared.Well, if she doesn't want a seat in the room during Trump's historic address, this appreciative veteran certainly does. @FoxNews Everyone please help and retweet. I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The...

    President Donald J. Trump is set to deliver the State of the Union on January 30. To no one’s surprise, a few Democrats will be boycotting the event. Well, five total—all the typical loudmouths of the Democratic Party.1. Frederica Wilson (D-FL)2. Maxine Waters (D-CA)3. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.)4. John Lewis (D-GA)5. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)Lewis thinks Trump is a racist after the “s**thole countries remark”: Lewis, 77, said he cannot go forward with attending the address to Congress, after what President Donald Trump "has said about so many Americans... I wouldn't be honest with myself."He also told NBC News he believes...

    Wilson joins Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga.; and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., in boycotting the event..."Rather than listening to another destructive, divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this years annual address to Congress," Blumenauer said in a statement. "Instead, like I did during his inauguration, I'll be working at home listening to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the Union."

    All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget...

    On Tuesday, President Obama delivered his final State of the Union Address. Yes, go ahead and smile. Aside from a random press conference and his farewell address, and baring an unforeseen horrible event (fingers crossed), he won't be in our faces again. Thank God! That said, it's time we re-evaluate the concept of the State of the Union speech. Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution says the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress information on the state of the union..." Were it not for television, this would be a non-event. But since we can't rid...

    Reflections on the last State of the Union Address from Barack Hussein Obama… The modern Democratic Party has made no secret of the fact that they detest the free market. No, not dislike, not disrespect, not even misunderstand... they detest the free market. From Secretary Hillary Clinton haughtily declaring to Senator Bernie Sanders famously declaring that 23 brands of deodorant are … the leading lights of the modern Democratic Party are dim bulbs indeed, when it comes to economics. They proudly refuse to understand the subject, and they set themselves up as superior to its realities. It has long been...

    HOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address:“The President continues to be in denial of reality. He would have us believe that global warming is our greatest threat, our military is as strong as it can be, the economy is working for American families, and that the key to alleviating poverty is more government dependence.“The reality is very different. We have had at least eight ISIS inspired attacks on innocent Americans, including law enforcement, yet he refuses to acknowledge the root of the cause of these attacks,...

    LONDONDERRY, N.H. - Texas Sen. Ted Cruz outlined his own vision for the country Tuesday night, miles away from the nation's capitol where Congress and members of the political elite - the "Washington cartel" in Cruz's words - have gathered for President Obama's final State of the Union address. "Tonight the State of the Union is strong and the state of the American people is we are waking up," Cruz, who's second in the Washington Examiner's latest presidential power rankings, told hundreds of voters packed like sardines into a middle-school cafeteria. The Texas senator spent most of his speech Tuesday...

    Obama's State of the Union, Empty Chairs, Violence, Abortion It’s not an empty chair that should be the focus of President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address tonight, but an empty cradle. In consideration of Obama’s intensely pro-abortion presidency; in searing memory of the closing words of his 2013 Planned Parenthood address: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood, God bless you”, the symbolic chair he is having placed center stage to represent those who lost their lives to gun violence, is as phony as the artificial tears he supposedly ‘wept’ at last Monday’s gun control press conference.

Can you imagine if the timing is off when he wipes his eyes and there were no tears falling out "On Cue"?, Hey, didn't Bill Clinton try to pull this stunt...

    Congress's first Muslim member, Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and nine other Democrats are inviting Muslim guests to Tuesday's State of the Union address to combat the anti-Muslim rhetoric of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the electorate. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she's helping to organize the effort because "leading political figures have made offensive and outrageous suggestions that we should create a national registry of all people of one particular faith and that we should prevent any person of that faith from even entering this great country."Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis.,...

    Out of time to push a new legislative agenda, President Barack Obama will look past Congress and to the American people in his final State of the Union address, aiming to define his presidency and his legacy before others can do it for him. For his seventh address, Obama plans to skips the traditional list of grand proposals, new policies and presidential appeals for new laws in favor of a broad overview of what he has accomplished since 2009 and what is undone in his final year in office. Aides said the president on Tuesday night will give his assessment...

    This has got to be the worst timing for a State Of The Union Address, especially when most of the worlds crises are at the fault of the party in power. It seems that every time Obama makes these addresses, he ends it with "The Economy Is Roaring!, We Are Back From The Brink!". Is he really going to say that again after what is going on with the stock market? How will Obama speak of what is going on with Iran,Saudi Arabia and North Korea? What about ISIS? What a Mess ha? Should be interesting to see who Obama...
