Thoughts About the Historic State of the Union
President Trump addressed the nation in the State of the Union this week with an inspiring vision for the future. The message was “Choose Greatness”. This theme was sprinkled throughout with his call for compromise and unity.
It was refreshing to watch him speak to Americans directly and highlight many of the incredible achievements of his administration. Bipartisan criminal justice reform, lowest ever minority and disability unemployment, right to try, almost 4 million new job–historically the lowest unemployment for the Hispanic and black population, and highest median household income ever.
The words he spoke that reverberated in Congress and across the internet were, “America will never become a socialist country. We are born free and will stay free.” The open call for Socialism in the United States should not be ignored. Venezuela was once the wealthiest nation in South America with the largest oil reserves. Today, they are in an abject state of despair and poverty with many of their people starving.
Trump’s SOTU address had something for everyone. The agenda he laid out isn’t “A Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda. It is an agenda for the American People.”
CBS Instant Poll gave Trump a 76% approval for his speech overall, and 72% approval of his immigration ideas. Another poll by CBS which separated the parties showed 97% of Republicans approved, 30% of Democrats, and 82% of Independents. It is encouraging to see this much support despite the media’s talk of division and disagreement.
P.S. Although it didn’t make the speech, there is a newsworthy item to include. Multiple states are introducing legislation to incorporate optional biblical literacy classes into their education curriculum. The country is showing signs of change toward a more Godly direction again. Can you feel it?
Those are my thoughts….

Is Murder now Legal in the U.S.? Some States say “yes.”
The recent media outrage over Governor Ralph Northam (D) wearing something racist when he was in Medical School… while completely defending his promotion of infanticide the same week, is a shocking indictment against many of our elected representatives.
Why such a sudden outcry when this information was well known for many years? And why is this news worthy right now? Perhaps to change the narrative away from yesterday’s headlines of advocating the murdering babies… even after birth.
The bill that Virginia delegate Kathy Tran brought forward allows termination of the life of a child right up to birth—for any reason, even the emotional well-being of the mother. Fortunately this bill was defeated. But similar bills in Rhode Island and Vermont are coming up for a vote very soon. And New York just finalized their bill allowing for murdering a baby right up through the birth process. And this passed to applause and cheers.
We must not allow the media to change the narrative and divert our attention. If there was ever a topic that should unite all Americans, it is abortion—especially abortion up until birth.
Write your senator, speak to your representatives, and make sure they know that taxpayers will no longer fund $500 million toward Planned Parenthood every year. It’s beyond time for change. God is watching!

Did the President Cave In?
In response to President Trump re-opening the government:
President Trump is playing the long game and going after moderates for the next election. He looks compassionate towards the furloughed workers while at the same time, giving a 3 week deadline to the House to negotiate the wall. If they still don’t negotiate then he looks like a leader. And those who don’t negotiate and attempt to resolve this issue, will be looked at as the responsible party for the stalemate.
President Trump will then get the wall built one way or the other. Also, during this time while the government is running again, President Trump will be able to conduct the State of the Union before Congress with a much higher audience (due to the controversy over this speech being canceled by the House Speaker). Also during this 3 week span, President Trump has time to convince American people that we need border security.
P.S: I believe that watching the Speaker’s face behind the President during the SOTU, will be priceless.
