A Most Remarkable Speech: The Trump Era Has Begun

Even his detractors were collectively stunned at how powerfully presidential Donald Trump’s address to Congress was last night. As some Democrats in attendance booed and gave the president repeated thumbs down, a nation nodded its approval. President Trump emerged bigger while Democrats appeared small, petty, and dysfunctional.

It was perhaps the single most remarkable presidential speech in a generation.

Making the moment even more remarkable was Mr. Trump’s ability to continue pushing for the very same America First agenda that both got him elected and created such opposition among the country’s far left. He hit on the goals of immigration reform, tax reform, a stronger military, expanding education opportunities for all, repealing and replacing Obamacare, and repeated calls for unity within the country.

It was a speech of such vast scope yet delivered with a calm strength, even some humor, that the president won gushing accolades from his supporters and grudging respect from his political enemies:

Not that some Democrats so out of touch and caught in a hate-Trump loop were yet aware of the moment happening all around them in real time. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was in particularly sour-faced form:

Old, tired, and bitter appears to be the face of the Democrat Party today.

Meanwhile, President Trump delivered what was perhaps the most touching testimony to a soldier’s sacrifice the American people have heard in some time. It came in the form of words directed to the widow of fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens. There has not been this kind of unifying applause within the halls of Congress for many years – and certainly not during the divisive administrations of Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

America is starting to feel like America again:


Dems Prepare To Disrupt President Trump’s Address To Congress

The invite list by Democrat members of Congress reads like yet another staged protest like so many in recent years that resulted in costly mayhem and damage. This time, though, it won’t be a protest on city streets, but rather within the halls of Congress itself as President Donald Trump takes center stage to lay out his year one agenda for the nation to the legislators responsible for turning that agenda into law.

Both Democrats and the Establishment Media see it as yet another opportunity to try and challenge and embarrass the president.

The anti-president mood will be unprecedented. Remarkable that the very same party and media who not so long ago vilified a Republican congressman for shouting out that then-President Obama was lying about Obamacare (a truthful claim), who demanded that despite political differences the Office of the President must always be respected, is now the party of unhinged opposition – the Office of the President be damned.

The list of guests will be people Democrats feel have been unjustly harmed by an administrative that is barely a month old. Those “harmed” include immigrants both legal and otherwise. Children of illegal immigrants who had criminal records and then were deported will be brought into Congress. So too will Muslims claiming to have been victims of hate crimes as well as a handful of people Democrats will use to represent the “good” that Obamacare has done.

It is rumored some of these guests will boo and hiss the president and that the media is already preparing to highlight those examples in its coverage of the prime-time address.

President Trump will address Congress on Tuesday.
