Those who happened to be tuned into Fox News last night for President Trump’s third State of the Union address would have heard, Chris Wallace, one of the many leftwing NeverTrumpers who have come to reside there at Fox, thoroughly poo-poo the president’s address before then turning right around and heaping all manner of praise on what was described as being the Democrat Party’s official ‘response’ given by, she who like Hitlery refuses to admit defeat, Stacey Abrams, who had obviously been cleaned up more than just a bit before her appearance on national television.
Despite Wallace’s rather glowing critique, Ms. Abrams droned on for I’m not sure how long doing little more than to magically transport those watching back in time, back to the 1960s, as the picture she painted of America bore very little resemblance to America as it actually exists here in 2019. And it was in fairly short order that it became rather apparent that she was much less interested in simply responding to the president’s address than she was in creating some sort of alternate universe as she claimed the president’s policies were actually damaging the American economy.
And it was in speaking before an audience made up almost exclusively of women that Abrams didn’t stray too far from the talking points that she had likely been provided with by Chuckie Schumer. As evidenced by when she said, “The Republican tax bill rigged the system against working people. Rather than bringing back jobs, plants are closing, layoffs are looming, and wages struggle to keep pace with the actual cost of living.” Now anyone watching, and who has been paying the least bit of attention over the last couple of years, had to be scratching their head at that one.
It was in listening to Abrams, which was something I actually had to force myself to do, that she seemed, at least to me, to have lost her grip on reality. The Trump tax cuts offered relief to middle-class families. More than that, they helped the economy soar to 3 percent annual growth, creating 304,000 new jobs last month alone, and boosting wages for blue-collar workers. In fact, blue-collar wages are now rising faster than wages for white-collar workers, as has reported by any number of reliable news outlets. And overall wage growth is at its best pace in over a decade.
Yes, there have been the occasional plant closures but they have been overwhelmed by the number of new job openings. Currently, there are more jobs available in the U.S. than there are unemployed people to fill them. Manufacturing, in particular, has soared, the U.S. economy has defied the low expectations of the Barry ‘O’ era to add the most manufacturing jobs in more than 20 years. Remember how Barry once declared it would take some sort of “magic wand” to bring manufacturing jobs back to America? It was a magic wand in the form of lower taxes and fewer regulations.
And I thought it rather odd when Ms. Abrams actually said, “Democrats stand ready to effectively secure our ports and borders.” That too didn’t exactly jive with the way things truly exist, because the border plan House Democrats offered to the president this month was one that demands that all immigration enforcement end, by the end of Fiscal Year 2019, for any adult crossing the border with a child. Rather than being held in detention, those adults and the migrant children they trafficked across the border would be released immediately into the interior of the country.
Also, the House Democrat offer does not include ANY money to construct a wall, much less a barrier, at our southern border, but it does provide about $502 million for “humanitarian concerns”, funding that illegal aliens and border crossers would have access to in the form of food, transportation, medical care, and housing. So I’m not exactly sure how it is that Ms. Abrams interprets that as the Democrats standing ready to “effectively secure our ports and borders.” And it’s by making such a patently untrue statement that she reveals herself as being nothing but a hack politician.
Another talking point presented by Abrams concerned the recent partial government shutdown. Abrams said, “The shutdown was a stunt engineered by the president of the United States, one that defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people—but our values.” But again truth becomes much stranger than fiction. Because you see, the Senate passed a spending measure to fund the government through February without the border wall funding the president had demanded. But the House, still under Republican control, passed a bill with wall funding.
The shutdown began December 22, and during one of the negotiating meetings at the White House, on January 9, the president said he would reopen the government immediately if Democrats agreed to funding a border wall. Pelosi said no, and the president left the meeting. Ten days later the president offered to extend the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in exchange for a wall. Pelosi again said no. On January 25, the president agreed to sign a bill funding the government for three more weeks until a border security deal can be reached.
And of course Abrams brought up what has long been another old favorite of Democrats, that being the supposed issue of ‘voter suppression.’ Abrams said she accepts her 2018 loss in the Georgia governor’s race, but “cannot accept efforts to undermine our right to vote.” Abrams said, “Let’s be clear, voter suppression is real.” And in spewing what is nothing more than the party line, she said, “From making it harder to register and stay on the rolls to moving and closing polling places to rejecting lawful ballots, we can no longer ignore these threats to democracy.”
But it’s a funny thing, because according to Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative at The Heritage Foundation, it was during the eight year reign of Barry ‘O’ that the Justice Department brought just ‘5’ cases related to race-based voter suppression under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. And it was he who pointed out that what Democrats often mean when they start throwing around claims of “voter suppression” is a reference to voter ID laws which require persons to produce photo identification before they are allowed to vote at their polling place.
And it was also von Spakovsky who pointed out another interesting fact, that those like Abrams might have a bit of a hard time trying to explain away. You see, in an op-ed that he did for National Review, he explained how it was that “nine of the 11 states that have implemented so-called strict ID Laws either saw an increase in turnout or exceeded the national average in turnout in 2016.” So how is it that this genius, Abrams, can explain that little phenomenon, I wonder? Chances are it’s facts such as those that the Democrats will simply choose to treat as if they don’t exist.
Sadly, it’s women like Abrams, and Hitlery, who give women a bad name. They claim to be strong, intelligent women yet they whine and complain at every turn. They seem unable to lose with grace and dignity, choosing to attack the winner instead of looking for why they lost. They pull the sexist card, the race card or claim that they were somehow cheated out of their rightful victory. They make women look weak and fragile and unable to deal with reality. They are not role models. Truly strong women are capable of learning from their losses, dust themselves off and just move on.
In Abrams we have another Obama disciple who tells emotional stories, but delivers no substance, facts, or solutions to Americans. She’s a very dangerous person because she actually believes what she’s saying, which is spoon fed from her party of lawless, infant killing, anti-American sociopaths that want nothing more than to see America in decline so they can keep their ‘modern’ form of slavery alive, keeping American families dependent on bigger and bigger government. America is not the nation of leeches, America has done more for the human race than any other nation in history.
The President has accomplished remarkable things for our country and for our people, ALL of our people. The Democrats, as made clear by Abrams response, can only criticize while their constituents benefit from the president’s many accomplishments. All we have here out of the mouth of the Democrats are promises of all manner of ‘free’ stuff. The sad part of it is that the Democrats know ‘free’ (Socialism) doesn’t work but they feel if they can get enough people to vote for their ‘free’ agenda, they will be in power forever. We the American people must be smarter than that!
