I hate listening to politicians talk. They never stop, for one, and for another, my pattern-detector goes wild with agendas hidden and overt. But sometimes, I Must Know. Which brings me to Trump’s SOTU 2020 speech.
The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or Democrat agenda, it is the agenda of the American people. Many of us have campaigned on the same core promises, to defend American jobs and demand fair trade for American workers, to rebuild and revitalize our nation’s infrastructure, to reduce the price of health care and prescription drugs, to create an immigration system that is safe, lawful, modern and secure, and to pursue a foreign policy that puts America’s interests first.
You had two jobs, Cabron. Build the Wall and Drain the Swamp. You didn’t get the former done because you played nice and now you’re joining the latter. Don’t distract us with issues of jobs and health care.
There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage together to seize it. [applause] victory is not winning for our party, victory is winning for our country. [applause] this year, America will recognize two important anniversaries that show us the majesty of America’s vision and the power of American pride.
In June we marked 75 years since the start of what Gen. Dwight Eisenhower called “the great crusade,” the Allied liberation of Europe in World War II. [applause] on D-Day, June 6, 1944, 15,000 young American men jumped from the skies, and 60,000 more stormed in from the sea to save our civilization from tyranny. Here with us tonight are three of those incredible heroes. Private first class Joseph Riley, staff sergeant Erving Walker — and sergeant Herman Zeitchik. [applause]
Nothing concerning the Jews is “a new opportunity in American politics”.
An amazing quality of life for all of our citizens is within reach. We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class and more prosperous than ever before. [applause] but we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. [applause]
Ditch that, Trump. I WANT revenge, resistance and retribution against the endless powers of compromise and cooperation-with-perverts that have made my California the mess it is. Evil must be punished!
Don’t talk to me about amazing quality of life. I’m a licensed professional and supervisor in the prime of life who’s been responsible enough to never have needed charity, never have fucked up my life with drugs or ‘youthful indiscretions’ and have entire backup careers ready in case the economy goes down AGAIN… and I can’t afford to rent my own apartment.
Together we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge all divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make. We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction. Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness. [applause]
Our government does not need more reform. It needs more layoffs. A 70% reduction in civil service headcount targeting Ivy league graduates, the FBI, the Dept. of Education and all welfare programs would be a great START.
Over the last two years, my administration has moved with a urgency and historic speed to confront problems neglected by leaders of both parties over many decades. In just over two years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom, a boom that has rarely been seen before. There has been nothing like it. We have created 5.3 million new jobs, and importantly, added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs, something which almost everyone said was impossible to do, but the fact is, we are just getting started. [applause]
He’s talking like an Establishment Con-servative. Government does not create jobs… although props to Trump, he’s temporarily stopped the government from intentionally destroying jobs.
All the good Trump has done is temporary. Once he gone, whether this year or 2024, it’ll take the Socialists all of a month to undo it.
Maybe he’s just playing to the Republican base of half-dead Boomers. A politically savvy move but I in my cynicism award no points for being a smooth operator.
Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue-collar workers, who I promise to fight for. They are growing faster than anyone else. Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps. [applause] The US economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world. Not even close. Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American, and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.
These are Leftoid talking points. Why are you doing this, Trump? Why are you “reaching across the aisle” to Democrat voters? Any of them who haven’t yet noticed that their leaders are monsters, never will.
It’s a hallmark of the Establishment Conservatives, aka the Never-Trumpers of all people, to ignore their own voter base in order to whore themselves to mythical “swing voters”. They just assume that conservative voters will vote for them because of a lack of options.
Unemployment for Americans with disabilities has also reached an all-time low. [applause] more people are working now than at any time in the history of our country. 157 million people at work. We passed a massive tax cut for working families and double the child tax credit. We have virtually ended the estate tax, or death tax that is — as it is called, for small businesses, ranches and family farms. We eliminated the very unpopular Obamacare individual mandate penalty and to give critically-ill patients access to life-saving cures, we passed very importantly, right to try.
And when California re-imposed Obamacare and publicly earmarked the tax money for the benefit of Federal immigration criminals, Trump did nothing.
My administration has cut more regulations in a short period of time than any other administration during its entire tenure. companies are coming back to our country in large numbers, thanks to our historic reductions in taxes and regulations, and we have unleashed a revolution in American energy.
Credit where it’s due, this is one of Trump’s greatest, most unsung accomplishments.
The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world — and now, for the first time in 65 years, we are a net exporter of energy.
Credit where it’s due, Trump didn’t build that. He simply didn’t oppose fracking, like the Democrats do.
Our military is the most powerful on Earth, by far, and America — America is again winning each and every day. members of Congress, the state of our union is strong.
Thanks to the Pentagon’s Tolerance In Diversity policy? The better bet is Afghanistan. I omitted it but later in this speech, Trump announced we’re finally in peace talks with the Graveyard of Empires.
Our country is vibrant and our economy is thriving like never before. Friday it was announced we added another 304,000 jobs last month alone, almost double the number expected. An economic miracle is taking place in the United States, and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous, partisan investigations.
Treason, Trump. The word you’re looking for, that which will sink America, is treason committed by American “citizens” that want America dead.
We must be united at home to defeat our adversaries abroad. This new era of cooperation can start with finally confirming the more than 300 highly qualified nominees who are still stuck in the Senate, in some cases years and years waiting — not right.
Hmm, USA faces no external threats. Translation: if you Jews want my continued protection of Israel then help me get my judges seated.
…After four decades of rejection, we passed a V.A. Accountability, so we can finally terminate those who mistreat our wonderful veterans, and just weeks ago, all parties united for groundbreaking criminal justice reform. They said it couldn’t be done.
Just kill the V.A. I don’t even want the Swamp drained anymore. Just kill it with fire. Maybe give vouchers instead.
Last year, I heard through friends, the story of Alice Johnson. I was deeply moved. In 1997, Alice was sentenced to life in prison as a first time, nonviolent drug offender. Over the next 22 years, she became a prison minister, inspiring others to choose a better path. She had a big impact on that prison population and far beyond. Alice’s story underscores the disparities and unfairness that can exist in criminal sentencing, and the need to remedy this total injustice. She served almost that 22 years, and had expected to be in prison for the remainder of her life. In June, I commuted Alice’s sentence. When I saw Alice’s beautiful family greet her at the prison gates, hugging and kissing and crying and laughing, I knew I did something right. Alice is with us tonight, and she is a terrific woman. Terrific. Alice, please.
Alice Johnson was a ringleader for an international cocaine trafficking gang. She was “nonviolent” because she gave the kill orders instead of carrying them out. More here:
Alice, thank you for reminding us that we always have the power to shape — the power to shape our own destiny. Thank you very much.
Burn in Hell, witch.
Inspired by stories like Alice’s, my administration worked closely with members of both parties to sign the First Step Act into law. Big deal. That is a big deal. This legislation reformed sentencing laws that have wrongly and disproportionately harmed the African-American community.
You’re killing me, Donald. What hope do the white nationalists see in you?
The First Step Act gives nonviolent offenders the chance to reenter society as productive, law-abiding citizens.
Violent offenders deserve the chance to reenter society, too. As I pointed out in my linked article, “nonviolent offender” means either “female offender” or ” convicted under three-strikes laws”. Whenever a bleeding heart liberal cries about some poor man getting 25 to life for selling a used crack pipe, it’s usually because the Dindu Muffin did so while on parole for armed robbery.
Trump helpfully proves my point:
We are also joined tonight by Matthew Charles from Tennessee. In 1996, at the age of 30, Matthew was sentenced to 35 years for selling drugs and related offenses. Over the next two decades, he completed more than 30 Bible studies, became a law clerk, and mentored many of his fellow inmates. Now, Matthew was the very first person to be released from prison under the First Step Act.
Matthew, please. Thank you, Matthew. Welcome home.
Oh that poor Matthew, railroaded with 35 years just for a one-time sale! Place your bets and…
A longtime drug dealer from North Carolina, Charles was convicted in 1996 of selling 216 grams of crack and illegally possessing a gun. Labeled a “career offender” because of previous convictions involving drugs, weapons, domestic violence, breaking into homes, assault, kidnapping and larceny, he was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
Exactly what I suspected.
Charles turned out to be a model inmate, authorities said. He organized a Bible study, mentored other prisoners and took college courses to become a law clerk, Nashville Public Radio reported in a 2017 profile.
Christianity is not grounds for leniency. If anything, the Christian should accept more harsh punishment because it’s better to pay the price for evil in this life than the next.
I question the rehabilitation of any inmate who becomes an expert in the law while serving his sentence. It is an obvious effort to cheat justice.
As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States. We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection. I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for this tremendous onslaught. This is a moral issue.
No, it’s an existential national security threat. Trump has steadfastly refused to treat it as such. Tip: it looks like perp walks and cops with axes to grind.
The lawless state of our southern border is a threat to the safety, security, and financial well-being of all Americans. We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens. This includes our obligation to the millions of immigrants living here today who follow the rules and respected our laws. Legal immigrants enrich our nation and strengthen our society in countless ways.
No! Law-abiding anchor babies need to be sent back. The Hindus here on work visas need to be sent back. No more amnesty! No more birth citizenship!
I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.
FUCK YOU, TRUMP! THIS IS MY COUNTRY, NOT THEIRS, AND I DON’T WANT *ANY* MORE IMMIGRATION!
Meanwhile, working-class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal immigration, reduced to jobs, lower wages, overburdened schools, hospitals that are so crowded you can’t get in, increased crime, and a depleted social safety net. Tolerance for illegal immigration is not compassionate, it is actually very cruel.
One in three women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north.
That’s reportedly safer than a feminist college. “Let’s travel thousands of miles to mooch off stupid white men! Oh noes, it wasn’t safe to do that!”
Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country. Human traffickers and sex traffickers take advantage of the wide-open areas between our ports of entry to smuggle thousands of young girls and women into the United States and to sell them into prostitution and modern-day slavery.
If Trump truly cared about sex trafficking then… Jeffrey Epstein. Word.
My administration has sent to the Congress a commonsense proposal to end the crisis on our southern border…. So let’s work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe.
Trump does love to make a deal. Even with the devil.
As we work to defend our people’s safety, we must also ensure our economic resurgence continues at a rapid pace. No one has benefitted more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the new jobs created in the last year.
Thanks for putting your Brave New Economy in perspective, Trump. Guess it’s up to leftover white men like me to have the babies! Sadly, that’s what Society will actually be accusing me of in twenty years. “It’s your fault the birth rate is down! Your patriarchial hegemony! Your stupid MGTOW philosophy! Your damned Jesus! Not my five abortions, three STDs and profitable career micromanaging scum like you!”
And by “in twenty years”, I mean “last week”.
All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before. Don’t sit yet. You are going to like this.
And exactly one century after the Congress passed the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in the Congress than ever before.
That’s great. Very great. And congratulations. That’s great. As part of our commitment to improving opportunity for women everywhere, this Thursday we are launching the first ever government-wide initiative focused on economic empowerment for women in developing countries.
Trump, if you actually do begin exporting feminism to vulnerable Third World countries then I won’t vote for you in November. Maybe there won’t be anybody I’ll vote for, but this is the most foul use possible of America’s political power and I will not forgive it.
To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount — reversing decades of calamitous trade policies. So bad. We are now making it clear to China that after years of targeting our industries, and stealing our intellectual property, the theft of American jobs and wealth has come to an end.
Stop talking and start executing spies.
Therefore, we recently imposed tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese goods — and now our treasury is receiving billions of dollars a month from — but I don’t blame China for taking advantage of us. I blame our leaders and representatives for allowing this travesty to happen.
Okay, then start executing traitors. The one thing you cannot afford to do, Mister President, is leave the enemies of America in America’s halls of power… say, by making a deal with them.
I have great respect for President Xi, and we are now working on a new trade deal with China. But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.
Another historic trade blunder was the catastrophe known as NAFTA…. Tonight, I am also asking you to pass the United States reciprocal trade act, so that if another country places an unfair tariff on an American product, we can charge them the exact same tariff on the same product that they sell to us.
He keeps see-sawing back and forth between his personal political agenda and the (((Establishment))) agenda of feminism and identity politics. A savvy negotiator, yes. A man of principle and action, no.
Already, as a result of my administration’s efforts, in 2018 drug prices experienced their single largest decline in 46 years. But we must do more. It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place. This is wrong, unfair, and together we can stop it. And we will stop it fast.
No. Americans paying extra for the same medications IS fair. IS moral. We’re the only nation in which pharmaceutical companies are allowed to charge prices high enough to recoup the considerable investment costs of medical R&D. Other countries, specifically those with socialized medical care, justify their thefts with appeals to charity. If Trump gets his way and USA also violates those patents “for the greater good” then there will be no more R&D.
You’re welcome, you parasitic, Socialist rest of the world.
I am asking the Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients. Finally.
…Or not, if Trump does this by going after those patent-violating freeloaders. But I don’t see it happening. Socialist welfare systems won’t pass the costs on to customers and the parent governments won’t subsidize those costs when they can legalize their own crime instead. And why not? There’s no Sky God to get butthurt about it….
In recent years we have made remarkable progress in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Scientific breakthroughs have brought a once-distant dream within reach. My budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years. We have made incredible strides. Incredible.
Together, we will defeat aids in America. And beyond.
AIDS is their problem, not mine. They chose to engage in disgusting, unhealthy behavior; I choose to not subsidize the consequences away with my tax money.
But I guess it’s not “my” money anymore, now is it?
Tonight, I am also asking you to join me in another fight that all Americans can get behind — the fight against childhood cancer. Joining Melania in the gallery this evening is a very brave 10-year-old girl, Grace Eline.
Again, their problem, not mine. If you want to help sick kids then God bless you. If you want to coerce other people into helping sick kids via government taxation then God curse you!
Seriously, I’ve zero sympathy for parents holding out their hands. They’ve been taking my tax money to pay for schools that have become Socialist horror factories for a long time. Either they’re okay with the horror factories or they want to take MY tax money to “charter schools”… not realizing that so long as their filthy lucre passes through gov’t hands, the central problem of gov’t raising their kids will remain.
Maybe if I wasn’t so literally taxed with helping other peoples’ children, I could have afforded my own kids… assuming some State-raised female would ever have been a reasonable marital risk.
I am also proud to be the first president to include in my budget a plan for nationwide paid family leave — so that every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child.
More feminist agenda, Mr. Trump? What the hell? I know you aren’t out to crash the American economy because you’re reducing regulatory burdens… but now you’re turning around and pushing this feminist bunk?
Exactly who are you pandering to? And why?
There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.
These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth.
Which is prima facie conspiracy to mass murder. Lawfully give the governor a trial, conviction and execution. Don’t pass a new law and don’t negotiate. If you can’t find your own spine to fight evil with then Planned Parenthood can sell you a brand-new one for cheap. Never used!
To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation…
Shut up about Congress legislating away my “dignity” problems. Congress and dignity don’t belong in the same sentence.
And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth — all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.
The “holy image of God” MANDATES the death penalty for murder, including abortion. Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.”
Get yourself a real spiritual adviser, Mr. President, and ditch the Bride of Cain.
The final part of my agenda is to protect America’s national security.
Get the military out of the Mideast. Get out of NATO. Deport every Jew in Federal Government service, especially including the Federal Reserve, and stop giving student visas to Chinese nationals. Done.
Over the last 2 years, we have begun to fully rebuild the United States military — with $700 billion last year and $716 billion this year. We are also getting other nations to pay their fair share. Finally.
Thanks to not-cis-white-men getting preferential treatment by the post-Obama-purge Pentagon, the US military is dangerously unreliable. It’s one thing to have nice toys, another to have perverts and preggos operating them and a disturbing third thing to have a military that looks nothing like the people they’re “protecting”. Although Trump did preserve Special Forces for a few more years. *GQ looks at Eddie Gallagher.*
Under my administration, we will never apologize for advancing America’s interests. For example, decades ago the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities. While we followed the agreement and the rules to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms. It has been going on for many years. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty, or INF treaty.
Good. At least Trump can walk away from bad deals.
We really have no choice. Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others, or perhaps we can’t – in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far. As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean peninsula. Our hostages have come home, nuclear testing has stopped, and there has not been a missile launch in 15 months. If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea.
You mean Russia, Mr. Trump. Hillary was practically selecting nuclear strike targets as her 2016 election strategy. No joke, I remember USA was Cuban-missile-crisis close to DEFCON Zero over a completely worthless piece of land that I still can’t find on a map.
Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one. Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.
That’s part of Trump’s leverage against China. North Korea is their cats-paw. The day the Norks launch working missiles at USA will be the day after China loses its trade war with Trump. Or would have been, if Trump hadn’t made a deal to prevent the Chicomms from squeezing Fat Boy at will.
Two weeks ago, the United States officially recognized the legitimate government of Venezuela, and its new interim president, Juan Guaidó. We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom — and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.
Nobody will miss Maduro but there is a danger that Guaido is a Deep State figurehead. Venezuela’s neighbors seem content with him, however, so it is what it is.
Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.
Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.
Sigh. “We will never give in! but we’ll let you try again next year after you bring more ‘voters’ into the country.”
One of the most complex set of challenges we face and have for many years is in the Middle East.
Leave them to die in their own, ethnic-driven grievances. Just quit and walk away. We don’t even need their oil anymore.
For this reason, my administration recognized the true capital of Israel — and proudly opened the American embassy in Jerusalem.
After this and commuting the sentence of a piece of shit named Sholom Rubashkin, ref. the Postville, Iowa immigration raid, Trump’s popularity among Orthodox Jews rose to over 90%, which is partly why I’ve been slamming them here. They’re the most obvious faction for Trump to be aligning himself to.
Our brave troops have now been fighting in the middle east for almost 19 years. In Afghanistan and Iraq, nearly 7,000 American heroes have given their lives. More than 52,000 Americans have been badly wounded. We have spent more than $7 trillion in the Middle East.
And USA has nothing to show for it, not even a new oil field. Which is the only legit reason to go to war in the Mideast.
My administration has acted decisively to confront the world’s leading state sponsor of terror — the radical regime in Iran. It is a radical regime. They do bad, bad things. To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal.
Fine. They were violating the beans out of it. But Iran is not an AMERICAN national security threat.
And last fall, we put in place the toughest sanctions ever imposed on a country. We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people. We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism, or those who spread its venomous creed.
Question from the peanut gallery: is anti-Semitism okay if there are legit reasons for it? Because telling America that we aren’t to think ill of Semites for ANY reason is a very un-American attitude. Not to mention, suspicious.
I didn’t used to be anti-Semitic… I was anti-Harvard… but the more I learn about my country’s inexplicably suicidal and debased behavior, the more a certain ethnic group stands out.
What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered? I ask the men and women of this Congress, look at the opportunities before us. Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead.
With defenders like Trump, only God will remember us. Thankfully, God is sufficient. This California boy always knew not to put hope in celebrity politicians and yet, it was hard to not like Trump for twisting Lefty panties and selling rice to China. But now he’s made deals with the devil and it looks like the Christ-haters are going to win after all.
