TRUMP SPEECH; YOU be the media!


HIGH POINTS:…………………………………………………………….

LOW POINTS: (anybody?)……………………………………………….

REACTION OF DEMOCRATS?………………………………………….


Fill in the blanks 🙂

I heard this little man on the radio coming home from dinner….before having heard the speech.  I kept thinking “I thought you’re supposed to address the speech when you’re rebutting a speech!”  This guy just slammed Trump for anything he could think of…I couldn’t help thinking how ridiculous he sounded…so petty, so hopeful the talking points he was clearly given didn’t sound TOO stupid.


They did.

  1. The speech was decent; I generally don’t put much stock into SOTU type speeches, unless there are specific policy proposals outlined. He sounded Presidential, but so did the last guy. He issued grandiose rhetoric, but then again…so did the last guy. And the guy before him. So, it’s business as usual.

    In his past capacity, I’ve worked for the current Senate Sergeant-at-Arms [Frank Larkin], so I always enjoy seeing him usher POTUS down the aisle.



    They looked as if they had bitten into sour persimmons. They so wanted Trump to blow this speech, and he didn’t.


  3. Even worse, some Democrats booed Trump’s announcement of the office to help the victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens.



    After Trump’s speech last night, I watched a few moments of CNN.

    As time wore on, within 1/2 hour, the comments got more negative — even after the declaration by Van Jones that Trump was Presidential in this speech. I felt as if the CNN panel just could not break out of their chains of hatred for Trump for any significant length of time.

    This morning, those on the panel of MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe,” the talking heads look deflated and despondent. But in a few minutes, they will interview Pelosi and will get another shot in the arm so as to revert to hatred.


  5. From HERE (emphasis mine — because my back was ruined when an illegal alien under a deportation order for some 20 years, yet driving a Yellow Cab, ran a stop sign an rear-ended me, so the matter is personal for me):

    Trump made appeal after appeal for bipartisan cooperation, but Democrats were anything but unanimously receptive.

    Some of them laughed out loud when the president bragged that he has ‘begun to drain the swamp of government corruption.’

    Others gasped in audible disbelief when he announced the formation of a government department to assist victims of illegal-immigrant criminals.

    Then came the hissing when he announced that ‘the time for trivial fights is behind us.’…

    From what I’ve been unable to avoid hearing this morning, the speech was a good one and even had some lefties applauding. But as I said about the halfrican, speechifyin don’t fix things; work does.

    We have two sides
    The left and the right
    Locked into place
    So firm and tight

    Each wants only
    Just one thing
    Power that comes
    With that brass ring

    If they’d try to compromise
    We could be both rich and strong.
    Words sound nice
    But deeds last long.

    I’ll wait ‘til the puppies’ eyes are open and the Zamboni has swept the rink of all the octopi and other detritus before passing judgment.

    SCotUS, taxes, economy, immigration, national security, VA, health care . . . then we’ll see.


  7. John M. Berger says:

    Trump: right speech, right content, good delivery and very Presidential.
    Democrats: child like comportment, apparently no interest in fixing our many problems, sadly disappointing and clinging to their destructive dogma.


  8. jerrydablade says:

    High point has to be the tribute for the fallen Navy Seal, Senior Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens.


  9. Kid says:

    Democrats so disrespectful, not just of Trump but of All Americans for showing zero support for things that would clearly improve things for all Americans. Even if you vote democrat how can you get behind that.

    And this VA things has to get fixed.


  10. John M. Berger says:

    I just heard that the DOW hit 21,000. I see a possible correlation here. Schumer be damned!


  11. geeez2014 says:

    Great comments, thanks….

    Imagine mentioning helping vets, choosing one’s school, even some women’s issues, and healing divisions, among other things, and the Dems still looked liked they’d all been shot in the back of the head and frozen upright in their seats? I wish we had a list of those Dems who DID applaud from time to time and even stood for a bit of it…very, very few, but they did.

    Bocopro! Nice, but there’s a premise I have begun to doubt and that’s how much better we’d be if there was compromise. I believe compromise would ONLY come if we gave in on everything we hate….How do you compromise something like sanctuary cities, which completely destroy any country’s sovereignty, for example? See what I mean? doubt, everybody’s saying that was THE high point. That poor young wife…I can’t imagine her particular, horrible pain, and I’ve been thru it….His father appeared to not be there,
    the father who wouldn’t meet with Trump at Dover because he’s blaming Trump for the raid that got his son killed and wants an investigation.

    AOW…I caught Van Jones talking about that, too. He only particularly mentioned Trump’s intro of the soldier’s wife as the moment he became presidential, but it’s at least some nod to Trump.
    To Dems, protecting Americans is anathema to their ideology “be nice to everybody else, WE are not worth it”

    CI, I think Trump got people on board again just mentioning what he wants to do rather than with details………forty days into it isn’t a lot of time for details, especially when, in some subjects, the cabinet secretary’s not been yet approved. I thought it was far more proAmerica than several past president speeches.

    JMB/ More than a correlation!


  12. geeez2014 says:

    Here’s how good Trump’s speech was: Yahoo homepage headline is something about who the best college basketball player is.
    Had Trump did the slightest thing they hated, it’d be ALL about that one moment.

    Plus, the polls are coming in at about 80% approval.
    Way down the line of headlines is the above link. 🙂


  13. bocopro says:

    Though sometimes it might be a large bitter pill to swallow, compromise is the essence of representative government and the only path to progress when irresistible forces meet unmovable objects.

    Done a lotta thinkin ’bout it over the years and finally decided that since crucial issues often have two diametrically opposed fundamental concepts, throwing hissyfits and dragging your feet often accomplishes little more than making your throat and feet hurt.

    Compromise at its best is the art of the deal, The Donald’s self-professed forte. It is the stirring and seasoning of conflicting interests to produce a what-IS-this-stuff! stew that gives everybody involved some measure of justification and satisfaction.

    Without compromise, my relationship with this volatile female with whom I’ve shared life for over five and a half decades would have ended tragically long ago, very likely with my sudden demise. I’m sure there’s a nice little sonnet or villanelle lurking in there somewhere, but I gotta go to the store for Milady and get her stuff for the pansit and adobo she’s making for our D-I-L’s B-day.


  14. Imp says:

    “Some of them laughed out loud when the president bragged that he has ‘begun to drain the swamp of government corruption.”

    Yes…as they looked around with smug, arrogant satisfaction to see that many of them were still there….except for that racist slave owner Maxipad Waters who was at PopEyes stoking her cholesterol levels. Pelousy looked like her face just came out of a block of ice. Lewis and Cummings looked like they were stoned…and Chucky, the current mohel of the Kosher-Nostra knew the President was aiming at him.


  15. Imp says:

    The meaning of the “D” in DemoRats:

    Depraved, Depressed, Deranged, Derelict, Derisive, Desperate, Despicable, Destructive, Dire, Dirty, Disagreeable, Disastrous, Discouraged, Despicable, Destructive, Dull, Dumb, Doddering, Delirious, Deluded, Delusional and above all…. Dangerous.


  16. Imp says:

    This is why they’re despicable…just one of many reasons…

    AWFUL: Top Democrats Refuse To Stand, Clap For Navy SEAL Widow Honored By Trump” I’d bet they’d stand and cheer and clap for one of their pet “brave” illegals though. Or for a Bruce Jenner. Or for a mooslem deriding Trumps immigration sanity.


  17. Kid says:

    Good stuff IMP. Dems got blasted on twitter over the Ryan Owens bit. I sure hope they’re putting the last nails in their coffins. How many people are willing to support such darkness…


  18. President Trump delivered a masterful, thoughtful, sober address to Congress. He repeatedly looked at the Democrats, pointing to them, gesturing to them, waving a welcoming, sweeping arm to them…. they gave him nothing. They’re bitter, hostile, hate-filled… totally unacceptable behavior from them.

    They just don’t want to accept they’ve totally screwed up the country and our lives and we’ve fired them. They thought the power belonged to them and they’re enraged that we’ve taken our power back. I suppose in time they’ll tire of losing and actually look at the failures that brought them to this place. Or not….

    I was proud of President Trump for honoring fallen Navy Seal Ryan Owens and his wife Carryn last night. It was truly heart-breaking and heart-warming at the same time. So respectful, so touching…. it reminded me of President Reagan’s remarks after the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Absolutely profound.

    President Trump demonstrated he is not only not in over his head, he showed he’s very competent and capable – he’s most certainly up to the job. I hope you agree, Z.


  19. Imp says:

    Bravo Zulu FairWitness.


  20. Kid says:

    FW, I honestly don’t believe the dems know how to do anything else. They’re all like evil ambulance chasing, stealing, lying, screw their own mother lawyer P.O.S.s who are owned by people even more evil. I hope they keep tripling down on being disgusting little rodents.


  21. Imp says:

    The so called “state” of DemRat puss today:

    The future with the Democratic Party. They have a Latino Leftist ( always a name with the tribal “Z” in it ) and a Black Muslim ( who proposed separate states for blacks ) for their “leaders” and who don’t have any idea of where we’re going except that is a land with plenty of abortion, homosexual sex, free pills, legal drugs, no coal, no gas, no soda pop, no white people, and open borders that Arabs with explosives can cross to blow your children up. The future is exciting!
    Add to this, “laws” for bathrooms where your daughter can get male anatomy lessons at a young age. So that 0.0001% of the country isn’t upset with their depravity and insanity.

    Oh.. .no guns for law abiding citizens because they’re dangerous. Let Chi-Congo be what it is. It’ll never change so why waste a cops time or life on them. If not them then it’ll be Baltimore, Newark, Philly or Detroit and LA.

    Trump in 2020 and Melania in 2024. KAGA.


  22. Bob says:

    As far as Trump speeches go, it was terrific. Obama could make a better speech, but we know how inept he was at everything else. Trump’s trump (pun) is that he has already started ACTING on his campaign promises, Indeed, Trump spent a lot of time talking about how he had already kept his word on many of his promises.

    Politically, Trump nailed it. By that, I mean that he nailed the Democrats to the cross. He out-Democrated the Democrats by promising PAID FAMILY LEAVE. I was surprised, and so was everybody else. Trump scored a home run by recognizing the WIVES of law enforcement and military members killed in the line of duty, and he did SINCERELY!

    As I heard on the Fox program #Outnumbered today, the Democrats couldn’t come up with an actually elected member for the rebuttal.

    The face of the Democrat Party has morphed into an ugly, vindictive visage personified by Nancy Pelosi. It’s time for the witch to retire. However, if she stays around, it can be nothing but a plus for the Republicans.


  23. Bob says:

    Oh, I forgot to mention that the appearance of the Democrats leaving the hall immediately made them look like cock roaches running for the exits when the lights come on. You really couldn’t ask for dumber conduct from the Democrats.

    Thanks to everyone for such great comments. Gheeez is the place to come.


  24. Imp says:

    “look like cock roaches”???? They are.

    Trump dumped a can of Raid and whoop ass on their furry little backs.


  25. John M. Berger says:

    Did you catch Up-Chuck’s slimy attempts to discredit, which he must know, the speech that sent him and his party of continuing irrelevance further into the crapper? He’s every bit as repugnant as Botoxi , if you ask me!


  26. Silverlady says:

    If those women in white on the Dem side knew how silly they looked ~~~~ I wonder, considering the white vestments, if they were thinking of themselves as Vestal Virgins giving the thumbs down sign in the Colisseum. NOT!!!


  27. bocopro says:


    “Chucky, the current mohel of the Kosher-Nostra”

    I am SO stealin that. And I’m gonna purloin-paraphrase some of the rest of that paragraph.

    B’lieve I mentioned before that the antagonist of one of my novellas is a non-corporeal extraterrestrial which takes up residence in a man’s corpus callosum during a time of great stress.

    Its presence amplifies the guy’s stress exponentially until it figures out where it is and how to communicate with its host, who eventually comes up with “Imp” in an effort to name the monster under the bed, so to speak.

    As the alien entity’s understanding of its environment develops, it begins experimenting with strong energy fields in the man’s mind, including memory, love, ethics, religion, self-expression, and so on . . . . Some of its meddling results in near disasters, hence the descriptive “Imp,” which also serves as a rather uncomplimentary but apt acronym.


  28. Imp says:

    Bocopro…go for it… suits them just fine.


  29. geeez2014 says:

    OH brother…I just lost a very long response to you all. That’s that.

    I will give a Reader’s Digest version;
    Bocopro…I still can’t imagine the Dems compromising on anything. Trump’s the guy who COULD get it, but they despise him far far too much and DO NOT want any success for him or Conservatives, you know that.

    FW…yes, I was very pleased with the speech and hope SOMEHOW Trump can find the money to pay for all he’s promising….I’ll be praying and was encouraged last night.

    Imp…great list of D’s.

    Kid….have you read ANY excuse the Dems gave for dissing the young widow of a fallen war hero? I can’t even IMAGINE how LOW, how HATEFUL…well, all Imp’s D’s apply, don’t they.

    Bob.. you said “Thanks to everyone for such great comments. Gheeez is the place to come.” You can’t know what that means to me. THANK YOU.

    JMB; Schumer was low EVEN FOR HIM, which is REALLY going some.
    But I listened carefully and he REALLY has the words that could work on Americans who believe him…very cunning jerk.


  30. geeez2014 says:

    I want you to all know that I don’t judge things like this, but…ok, I am in my own head.



  31. geeez2014 says:

    Wait….I don’t always believe SNOPES but ….this might be true….


  32. geeez2014 says:

    ANother video of the moment…the Dems DEFINITELY didn’t stand nearly as long as the Reps did, but they had stood.


  33. geeez2014 says:

    MAL’S 93 YR OLD SISTER GLORIA HAD HIP SURGERY YESTERDAY AND IT WAS A WONDERFUL SUCCESS….BUT PLEASE PRAY FOR HER PAIN LEVELS AND THAT SHE RESPONDS AS WELL AS THE DAYS GO BY! She’s one of my favorite people and one of my mother’s best friends. AND Mal’s SISTER, after all! Thanks for your prayers!~ XX


  34. bocopro says:

    Well, somebody had a decent reaction to a lefty’s attempt to belittle the wrong issue:

    And on compromise concerning “sanctuary cities” . . . it’s already on the table — been there for years. Get rid of the felons and career nuisances who are here illegally and give a little slack to the DACA crowd.


  35. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro, I have no idea what you mean about “already on the table” or the DACA crowd??
    And WHAT A TERRIBLE PERSON who’d say something like that to a widow?
    I’m wondering if her father-in-law didn’t want her to go; he won’t speak to Trump, says he hates what Trump did to the Khans and, in general, isn’t a fan…but thinks Trump caused his son’s death and wants an investigation.


  36. bocopro says:

    Well, without a long-winded discussion beginning with definition of terms and all that, it seems to me that Guv’ner Moonbeam and his ilk feel that “sanctuary” status negates or cancels US Code, Section 1324: “any person who, knowing that an alien remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields that person from detection [. . .] shall be fined under title 18 [and/or] imprisoned not more than 10 years.”

    O.K. So let ’em run with that ONLY for those in DACA status, a bone to the dog if you will. BUT — anyone who was previously ejected and then returned without permission is NOT protected, nor is any person convicted of a felony or a number of misdemeanors clearly contrary to maintenance of good order & discipline.

    IOW, maids, cooks, roofers, braceros, mechanics . . . people who might be here illegally but are breaking no OTHER or subsequent laws will be ignored by ICE until they appear on the federal radar for convictions, indictments, fines, and so on.

    That’s a compromise IMO. I don’t like it, but it’s what reasonable people have been suggesting and offering for years, and very close to what DJT is now proposing.


  37. bocopro says:

    I assumed everybody knows what DACA is, but for clarity it is “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” certain illegal immigrants who came here before age 15 or before June 2007. It’s a kinda rinsed-out green card without being one of the boxtops for citizenship. If they get proper work permits, they are exempt from deportation — or something like that; I don’t pretend to be thoroughly conversant with the policy, which I believe was an EO.

    As I recall, the program covers an estimated 2 million+ illegals.


  38. bocopro says:

    Oh, and DJT’s only guilt in the Owens death is being in the position to make the decision and then MAKING IT . . . something his predecessor had major problems with ’cause he’s a Muslim symp and a career wimp.


  39. Kid says:

    I don’t have a big problem with non criminal Mexicans being here. I want them on work visas, identified, fingerprinted, DNA’d and tagged to a location. Hey, I like good Mexican food.

    moslems? Different story. They offer nothing to America and never will.


  40. You know something? It just dawned on me why the Left has attacked Carryn Owens’ attendance last night, She has exposed the Left’s plot using her father in law to attack President Trump. They were planning to turn him into the “Cindy Sheehan” they used against President George W. Bush. Her taking comfort from President Trump has ruined that plot! She isn’t the one being used for political reasons, the father in law is.


  41. Kid says:

    Ryan Owens. I welcome an investigation. This operation was vetted and authorized by military command. What? Trump is supposed to vet a military operation that the commanders tell him is righteous? Pathetic. Yes, investigate, and shove it down their throat.
    Then imagine they find the person that leaked it to the moslems IF it was leaked. Awsum.


  42. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro; of course I know DACA….and I do agree with you except not that illegals should wait till they’re criminals…..I believe they should wait in line..albeit loooong lines, and file for green cards or citizenship IF they’ve been criminally clean. No deportation for no reason.,

    Kid…you say exactly my feelings I just wrote to bocopro…let them be legal IF they are CLEAN…I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD, TOO! But, I DO have a little problem with SO many Spanish language radio/TV…I’d like for all immigrants to become AMERICANS and I’d like English to be made the language of our country, officially. No more printing in 276 languages, including Armenian 🙂 (me)!
    and OH KID, if they ONLY find the leaker…I prayed that SO often during Obama’s admin “Please PLEASE let the truth come out, expose the liars, expose Obama’s criminals”

    FW…EXCELLENT point…You may just be RIGHT because of her father-in-law, who the Left must LOVE for his anti-Trump stance! Good thinking.


  43. geeez2014 says:

    ONE MORE COMMENT: Yahoo News page has been so silent in any criticism that Trump’s speech last night must have been EVEN BETTER THAN WE THINK!! I LOVE IT!!!


  44. Kid says:

    Z, Yes, America needs to be America and an English speaking documenting country. The Asians have no problem with it.


  45. geeez2014 says:

    I love Ash Wednesday and will be going to church soon…see you later. What a blessing


  46. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I’ve always wondered if the left was THAT evil back ‘then’, when making English the country’s legal language was constantly denied by them; knowing it wouldn’t be ENGLISH we’d be speaking in years to come, anyway.
    Oh, Kid…you’ll just ‘love’ THIS!


  47. John M. Berger says:


    “turn him into the “Cindy Sheehan”

    Wow, I’ve considered the same thing!


  48. Kid says:

    Z, Quartz? Just more anti-American bs media.

    And furthermore, Asians determine what American names they and their children will adopt even before they get here. Most learn the language as well ahead of time. Immigrants who are opposite such ideas don’t belong here.

    Imagine if you decided to immigrate to Mexico. Would you not learn the language out of a fear that you couldn’t co-exist with the native population? I would. I can’t imagine trying to emmigrate to Mexico, not know the slightest thing about the language or customs and then demand preferential treatment while I’m there. Imagine !!! Jesus.


  49. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I lived in Germany with a German husband and went to German classes nearly every day…I moved to Paris for four years and took 2 1/2 years of classes then had a French tutor to the house once a week….YES, you want to FIT IN, know how to operate in the language of the’s richer!

    AND, you are SO RIGHT about Asians! The Chinese boy who lives now with me said they get their English names IN CHINA! I thought they pick them once they get here…but nope. They have English class and he’s CHRIS.



  50. John M. Berger says:

    “Imagine if you decided to immigrate to Mexico. Would you not learn the language out of a fear that you couldn’t co-exist with the native population?”

    I would, indeed, but after 20 years of going to Mexico and making friends there I met some that spoke/speak better English than many do right here in Colorado, who have been here forever. Many of those that I’m referring to have [never] even been to the “States” and have no desire, whatsoever to migrate here. Well, back to your point: if you chose to reside anywhere by all means learn the language; OMG it’s stupid not to!


  51. Kid says:

    Quartz, Your link. Just another click bait site that leans left.

    I saw a story about a girl who makes good money matching Chinese people up with ‘meaningful’ American/English names prior to their coming here.
