GOP Sen Cruz: ‘I Thought It Was a Very, Very Strong Speech and a Strong Night for the President’

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” following President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave Trump high marks for the speech.

Cruz applauded Trump for highlighting the various personal stories of his invited guests and called it a “strong night” for Trump.

“The president did an incredible job highlighting the parents of those who have lost their children to MS-13 and violent illegal aliens,” Cruz said. “Highlighting heroes, whether police officers and coastguardsmen or first responders across the country. And the president did a tremendous job overall focusing on jobs, on wages going up, on the historic tax cut.”

“I thought it was a very, very strong speech and a strong night for the president,” he added.


CNN’s Tapper: Trump’s ‘Americans Are DREAMers, Too’ Statement ‘Offensive’ to Dems

Following President Donald Trump’s delivery of the State of the Union address on Tuesday, CNN host Jake Tapper said Trump did not “understand” how offensive it was to Democrats for him to state that “Americans are DREAMers, too.”

According to Tapper, Trump did not understand that Democrats were going to be offended by the phrase “Americans are DREAMers, too” and other language used by Trump on immigration.

“[B]y the same token, I think President Trump doesn’t actually necessarily understand just how offensive many Democrats in that chamber are going to find some of the things he proposed and some of the things he said in terms of, there are Americans who are DREAMers, too, etc., some of the things he said about immigration that are going to turn off a lot of people in that chamber,” Tapper said.

Network political analyst Gloria Borger followed by saying that she agreed with Tapper’s assessment of Trump’s language.

“I want to echo something Jake said,” Borger said. “Because on the one hand, the speech could be kind of sunny and moving when you talked about some of the anecdotes and the people who were in that gallery. And then he would turn quite quickly to America first, to saying that Americans are DREAMers too, to policies that are quite divisive. And I think he’s gotten a little more adept at doing this. And we see that in this speech.”

Donald Trump Turns to Heroic Americans to Demonstrate Strong State of the Union

President Donald Trump delivered an energetic State of the Union address on Tuesday, pointing to heroic Americans to make his case that America was strong.

“Let us begin tonight by recognizing that the state of our Union is strong because our people are strong,” Trump said. “And together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America.”

Trump’s guest box was packed with Americans who stood up to help their fellow citizens in need.

He celebrated the Cajun Navy for volunteering to help their fellow Americans in the hurricanes; Coast Guard Petty Officer Ashlee Leppert for saving over 40 lives; Army Staff Sergeant Justin Peck, who saved the life of his comrade Kenton Stacy in the fight against ISIS; and firefighter David Dahlberg, who rescued 60 children trapped at a California summer camp.

He recognized the heroes who helped save lives in the Las Vegas shooting and celebrated House Majority Whip Steve Scalise for recovering from a shooting by an angry leftist

“Over the last year, the world has seen what we always knew: that no people on Earth are so fearless, or daring, or determined as Americans,” Trump said. “If there is a mountain, we climb it. If there is a frontier, we cross it. If there is a challenge, we tame it. If there is an opportunity, we seize it.”

To highlight patriotism, Trump pointed to Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy who started a mission to place 40,000 flags at the graves of veterans on Veterans Day.

“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our Nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” he said.

Trump also recognized business owners benefiting from his tax reform plans and a welding employee who also got a tax cut.

He told the story about Albuquerque Police Department officer Ryan Holets and his wife Rebecca, who adopted a young unborn child from a homeless woman who was addicted to heroin.

Trump pointed to surprise guests in the First Lady’s box to highlight the tragic story of Otto Warmbier, who died after being imprisoned in North Korea, bringing his family members to honor his memory.

Trump also brought a man who escaped North Korea on crutches, Ji Seong-ho, to highlight the atrocities of North Korea.

“Seong-ho’s story is a testament to the yearning of every human soul to live in freedom,” he said.

Now that he is in America, Seong-ho now has a new leg, and he triumphantly waved his crutches in celebration.

But the president also recognized people who suffered in the United States as a result of failures of the American system.

He pointed to two fathers and two mothers — Evelyn Rodriguez, Freddy Cuevas, Elizabeth Alvarado, and Robert Mickens, who lost children to gang members who were in the country after taking advantage of loopholes in the immigration system to remain in the United States.

To highlight the ongoing fight on the border, Trump pointed to Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Celestino Martinez for his work to arrest MS-13 gang members.

Trump concluded that the American people would seize the “new American moment” to fully live the American Dream.

“The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it is the people who are making America great again,” he said. “As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve.”


Trump’s DHS Secretary Confirms They Are Preparing To Arrest Sanctuary City Leaders

AJR| It could be just a matter of time before DHS comes with a warrant for leaders of city and and states that encourage illegal aliens to stay in their cities without the threat of legal arrest and deportation. This puts mayors like Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, DiBlasio of New York and even Gerry Brown, Governor of California.

According to the Washington Times:

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.

Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.

Mr. Homan repeated that demand in an interview with Fox News earlier this year, setting off a firestorm of criticism.


Line of the Night: Trump Says 26 Words at SOTU Address, Lights Entire Auditorium On Fire

Kirsters Baish| Going into yesterday evening’s State of the Union Address from President Donald Trump, we all knew that the tone of it would be unifying to our country. We are all so used to former President Barack Obama, whose entire agenda’s end goal seemed to be to divide the entire country into groups from women to whites to blacks to gays to immigrants. He purposely pitted us against each other.

Things are different now that Donald Trump is in office. His speech proved to be as eloquent and informative as we expected from our Commander in Chief. One of the most powerful lines in his speech had to do with the importance of family and trust in God.

Watch the clip below:

NPR reported:

Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of a nation we are going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family, can do anything. We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.

Together, we are rediscovering the American way. In America, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of American life.

The motto is in God we trust.

President Trump did a wonderful job of explaining the difference between those who belong to the Conservative Party and those who belong to the Liberal Party. Conservatives are concerned about faith and family and being independent from the government. Liberal seem more concerned about convincing us that government is the answer to all of our problems.

President Trump has been a big advocate for religious liberty in our country.

The Hill reported that the Department of Justice had issued a guidance memo of October 6, 2017. The subject line of the memo read “Federal Law Protections for Religious Liberty.” This memo has very intricate and specific instruction to executive branch agencies about how they should be implementing federal law in a way that shows respect to people’s religious liberty. This guidance proves that President Trump is following up on his campaign promises. He wants to protect our religious liberties, and that is a beautiful thing.

The memo is 25 pages long. As you can imagine, it is extremely thorough and has an obvious direction on the issues at hand. It has a list of 20 principles for all of the agencies to abide by. It explains that religious rights means being able to act or not act and that religious liberty applies to both individual people as well as entities. The memo also has guidance on certain elements of agency work. These elements include hiring, rule making, and grant awarding. The ending contains a whole section which outlines constitutional and statutory protections of religious liberties.

The Hill reported:

The thoroughness is by itself significant — but there are several other reasons why Christians should celebrate this document. It represents a return to the basic principles of our Constitution, where religious liberty presides at the forefront of the Bill of Rights. The DOJ memo opens by declaring that this liberty “is … enshrined in our Constitution and other sources of federal law.” It then continues by quoting James Madison’s observation that freedom of religion “is in its nature an unalienable right,” since our devotion to God “is precedent … to the Claims of Civil Society.”

Trey Gowdy Just Explained Why Adam Schiff Is So Scared of The Memo’s Release [Video]

Elder Patriot -Adam Schiff relentlessly rushed to any cameras that he saw to accuse Donald Trump of “colluding” with Russia from the time Trump was a candidate until last week.  When he had a particularly juicy but unsubstantiated smear he leaked it instead.

Unfortunately for Schiff, Robert Mueller has failed to find even a sliver of evidence to support Schiff’s yearlong jihad of phony innuendos against Trump. 

And now that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has significant evidence that the Obama administration had defrauded a FISA court, illegally spied on political opponents, and tanked the email case again Hillary Clinton, Schiff is in full panic mode.

Gowdy visited with Fox and Friends earlier today.  He was asked about the memo and why Schiff, who as the ranking Democrat on the committee speaks for his fellow Dems, seems so desperate that the memo be kept in house.

“My Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information, they did everything they could to keep us from finding this information.

“I think it will be embarrassing for Adam Schiff once people realize the extent to which he went to keep them from learning any of this.

“I mean going to court to help Fusion GPS so we can’t find out that they paid for the dossier and that they were working for the DNC. That’s a pretty big step to go to court to try to keep the American people from learning something. So look, if it were up to Adam Schiff, you wouldn’t know about Hillary Clinton’s email, you wouldn’t know about the server, you wouldn’t have known who paid for the dossier, so I find it ironic that he has his own memo now because if it were up to him, we wouldn’t know any of it.”

The mainstream media matrix immediately began attacking HPSCI Chairman, Devin Nunes, accusing him of being a Russian operative as though that would somehow make the evidence in the memo disappear.

Twitter lit up with criticism over the mainstream media’s hypocrisy:

Schiff isn’t the only Democrat on the HPSCI who should be worried. 

Another California Democrat, Eric Swalwell had given the Awan brothers unfettered access to the House computer system including to Top-Secret and classified information.  Some of that information wound up in Pakistani hands around the time that one of our SEAL teams was ambushed and an American hero William “Ryan” Owens was killed.

The fact that not a single Democrat wants to know more is extremely troubling.  It raises questions as to exactly whom do the Democrats represent?  This is not hyperbole.  It’s time to ask the question, if a party were intent on destroying the institutions and societal fabric that once served to make this country great, how would their platform differ from the Dems’?

BREAKING: House Votes To Release the Memo

Elder Patriot – The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted to release the memoonly moments ago.

It will now go to President Trump who can choose to read it into the record during his State of the Union address tomorrow night, release it later this week, or choose not to make it public at all.

Should the president choose not to release it himself it will pass back to the full House where members of that body can vote to make it public if a majority of members vote to do so.

Those members of the HPSCI who have reviewed the four-page memo have described it as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming.”  More than one congressman compared the evidence compiled against the upper levels of the FBI as comparable to tactics employed by the Russian KGB.

FBI Director Christopher Wray reviewed the memo yesterday and summoned Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to his office earlier today to demand his immediate resignation.

By handling it in this manner Wray has offered McCabe the opportunity to depart with his dignity in tact.  McCabe doesn’t deserve that consideration.

McCabe had used his considerable power in an attempt to change the results of the 2016 presidential election. 

Earlier in 2016, McCabe’s wife received $700,000 from Clinton campaign funds after it had been funneled through Bill’s former bagman and now Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, at the same time that McCabe was authorizing the destruction of the considerable evidence against Hillary.

Once the bureau’s disgraced former Director James Comey exonerated Hillary, McCabe turned his sights towards discrediting Donald Trump by helping orchestrate the smear campaign against him with allegations of colluding with Russia. 

Even after Trump became president McCabe kept driving the narrative that Trump had untoward ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

Now investigative reporter Sara Carter is reporting that McCabe was furious when Wray told him he wanted his resignation or the he would be fired post haste.

Christopher Wray has just gotten started.  We are hearing from our sources inside the FBI that they are expecting a significant number of additional resignations to follow.

Carter has reported that:

“There are people lining up in the bureau to go after McCabe,” said a former FBI official, with knowledge. “There will be a clean up at the Bureau of his cronies.”

“McCabe apparently lashed out to his colleagues when he was told he would be asked to resign, according to sources. FBI Director Christopher Wray viewed the four-page memo on Sunday, sources familiar with the discussions said. 

McCabe, who is facing three federal inquiries for conflicts-of-interest “during his time at the FBI, is one of the numerous names mentioned in the classified memo detailing FISA abuse, according to sources who reviewed the memo.”

Drain the Swamp!


Memo Cites Rosenstein and Ohr – Both Face Immediate Termination, Indictments Possible

Elder Patriot – U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who has served as head of the DOJ on matters related to the Trump-Russia investigation is himself under investigation for his role in authorizing the fraudulent presentation of evidence to a FISA court that he knew, or should’ve known was false in order to gain a spy warrant against a political opponent.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memo is going to prove that the investigation into Trump-Russia collusion was undertaken absent any credible proof.

It has also been learned that in addition to naming FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the memo cites former Deputy Attorney General for his role in promoting the credibility of the phony Fusion GPS dossier as evidence for the FISC application.

Ohr, whose wife worked for Fusion GPS at the time the dossier was being prepped as evidence, held secret meetings in 2016 with Christopher Steele.  Steele was a former British spy who authored the dossier relying almost exclusively on input from Russian sources. 

Ohr also surreptitiously met with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS – the opposition research firm that hired Steele with funding from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee and laundered through the legal firm Perkins Coie.

For those of us who have had to endure and finally broke free of the mainstream media matrix this is indeed a bittersweet time.  We stood by Trump as our last best hope to save our republic and to restore its greatness. 

It should be very interesting to see of the MMM reports these breaking events considering they’ve been filling their news cycle with discussions of the president’s weight, mental capacity, and accusations of racism, xenophobia, and misogyny.  In plain English, they’ve completely ignored the important news and fixated their audiences on BULLSHIT.

Very few of us knew just how tough Trump would prove to be and whether he would be able to withstand the onslaught from the Deep State that we predicted was coming immediately after Trump was elected.

Trump has proven to be one tough SOB.  He is about to deliver on the most difficult and risky promise he made to us – to Drain the Swamp.  Those who stood by him are about to be rewarded.  They are going to get their government back.

Dem. Rep Frederica Wilson Says Trump Doesn’t Deserve “Honor” Of Her Presence At SOTU, She Gets Crushed

America’s wackiest cattle rustler cap wearing Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson reported that she wouldn’t give Trump the respect of heading off to his State of the Union address.

Trump must be crushed. Not. As indicated by Wilson, she is dissenting Trump for having ‘disdain’ against dark individuals. Despite the fact that he is in charge of record low joblessness rates operating at a profit group.

“I’m not going in light of the fact that to go is respect the president, and I don’t think he should be regarded as of now, in the wake of being so disdainful towards dark individuals and afterward dark nations, Haiti and the entire mainland of Africa, It harms.

It damages, and he has conveyed the White House to the most reduced, and I don’t think he should be respected with my essence,” said Wilson.

“It harms. It harms me. My dad was a social liberties symbol, and I can’t discover it in my heart to sit through this. Africa is my tribal home, and I feel a genuine closeness to Haiti where a great many my constituents radiated from,” said Wilson.

“So I would preferably skirt this than tune in to the talk originating from a White House that has discarded tolerability,” said Wilson.

“I will watch the State of the Union with my nearby constituents, with my neighborhood Muslims and DREAMers and nearby Mexicans and neighborhood Haitians and casualties of sexual manhandle and neighborhood Gold Star families and neighborhood Africans who are Nigerians and South Africans.

So we will watch the State of the Union, however I won’t enter the chamber,” said Wilson.
