Highlights of the News



Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: President Trump updated Congress on the State of the Union to Congress last night. The speech can be summed up in his awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh. I can think of nothing else that so poignantly informs us of where we are. We flipped 180 degrees on 8 NOV 2016 from incremental socialism back to full-blown capitalism.
The award reflects a return to the peace and prosperity and patriotism we enjoyed just 30 years ago. The president celebrated that by honoring the man who kept the candle lit all those long years in between.

Limbaugh is the arc from President Ronald Reagan to President Trump. Limbaugh was our comfort in the dark days of Bill Clinton, and the darker days under Obama when communism almost slipped past our gate under the cloak of affirmative action.

Obama gave this honor to his lackey, the dumb, corrupt Groping Joe from Corn Pop Row. For Democrat presidents it should be named the Medal of Subservience.

Limbaugh earned his award by promoting freedom when freedom wasn't coo-ool.

The Lord is giving him a victory lap. I am sure he will savor every moment.

ITEM 2: Lloyd Grove reported, "Donald Trump served various television news personalities a lunch described by one White House guest as soup and filet of sole Tuesday — but soon the assembled anchorpeople were eating out of his hand.

"Much to the disappointment of folks at CNN, nobody at the long table — who included NBC’s Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s David Muir and George Stephanopoulos, and CBS’s Norah O’Donnell and Margaret Brennan — bothered to ask why the president had gone out of his way to exclude the cable network run by Trump’s former friend Jeff Zucker."

Grove, who is pretty good at gossip, quoted someone at the lunch who said of the president, "He was chill. He wasn’t angry at all. He was friendly, outgoing, and relaxed. He was confident that he’ll be re-elected."

This is normal, which is the Democrat Party's biggest fear. President Trump hasn't changed. The anchors have. They have seen a man win a nomination they said he would not win, win an election they said he would not win, drop unemployment to a 50-year low, start the wall, survive Mueller, survive impeachment, and have a jolly good time all the while.

At some point, adults concede they were wrong and move along.

ITEM 3: Trending Views reported, "President Donald Trump arrives at the State of the Union address and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi extends her right hand to shake hands with him. He doesn't even acknowledge it and turns around. This is right after he handed her a large booklet/folder looking document with his right hand, and there's actually a slight chance he did not see her hand as he turned around so quickly. However, on video, it sure looks funny."
Paybacks for clapbacks are a bitch.

And remember, liberals praised her clapback last year. I don't want to hear their jive about civility.

Oh and she tore up her copy of the speech when he finished. Well, that's the last State of the Union she will see from that angle.

ITEM 4: Chrissy Clark reported, "In MSNBC’s daytime lineup, host Katy Tur was shocked when she met Iowans who supported President Trump. Tur sought out Iowa farmers in hopes they would publicly complain about Trump and his trade war with China.

"It’s conventional Democratic knowledge that Trump’s trade war with China, including the consequential tariffs, are harming farmers’ bottom lines, particularly in the swing state of Iowa. However, this conventional wisdom was shot down when Tur asked farmers for their thoughts on the tariffs."

Farmers have college degrees, just like reporters do. And unlike reporters, they understand economics.

ITEM 5: Mexicans have no problem shutting down illegal immigration.
Mexico has become America's wall. Seriously. 52% of the Mexicans polled said that. When he's through here in 2025, maybe The Donald can run for president of Mexico.

ITEM 6: Aaron Mehta reported, "A new nuclear warhead requested, designed and produced under the Trump administration, has been deployed aboard a nuclear submarine, the Pentagon confirmed Tuesday.

"The deployment of the W76-2, a low-yield variant of the nuclear warhead traditionally used on the Trident missile, was first reported Jan. 29 by the Federation of American Scientists. The first to move out with the new weapon was the USS Tennessee (SSBN-734), deploying from Kings Bay Submarine Base in Georgia at the end of 2019, FAS reported.

"Asked about the reported deployment, a Pentagon spokesman stated that it is U.S. policy to neither 'confirm nor deny' the presence of nuclear weapons abroad and declined to comment on the specific details of the FAS report, such as the ship involved. However, in a Tuesday statement, undersecretary of defense for policy John Rood confirmed that the Navy has fielded the weapon."

The story also said, "The creation of a low-yield submarine launched warhead was one of two new designs called for in 2018’s Nuclear Posture Review. The warhead is designed to be smaller than the weapon detonated at Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II. The design is a modification of the W76-1 warhead for the Navy’s Trident ballistic missile design choice that allowed the National Nuclear Security Administration to quickly turn around the design and production in roughly a year."

Hmm.

President Trump's late uncle was a physicist entrusted with Tesla's private notebooks. His uncle taught him the dangers of nukes. Deterrence and negotiation are the keys to de-nuking the world.

ITEM 7: Reuters reported, "World Trade Organization Director General Roberto Azevedo said on Tuesday he would not meet with President Donald Trump during his current visit to Washington, but believed U.S. officials shared a sense of urgency about reforming the global trade body.

"Azevedo said he was in constant contact with the U.S. Trade Representative's office and could return to Washington if a meeting with Trump or other officials was scheduled."

The story also said, "Azevedo said Trump had made clear during a meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland last month that he wanted to see the WTO change, and said he had been invited to Washington to discuss how deep such reform would be.

"But Azevedo said he would not meet with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer or Trump during this visit to attend the conference."

The WTO chief cannot get a meeting with the Trump administration? Not even the trade rep? Delightful.

ITEM 8: Business Insider reported, "Special Warfare Rear Admiral Collin Green, commander of Naval Special Warfare Command, will retire in September."

Green clashed with his commander in chief, publicly.

The story said, "His retirement follows the controversial court-martial of Special Warfare Operator Chief Eddie Gallagher, after which Green moved to withdraw Gallagher's Trident pin, which signifies his membership in the Navy SEAL community.

"Green personally ordered an ability and ethics peer evaluation of Gallagher, who was previously demoted and charged with war crimes, including the murder of an ISIS prisoner of war and the shooting of two people in Iraq in 2017. Gallagher was acquitted on both counts but convicted on a lesser charge of posing for a picture with the dead ISIS fighter.

"However, President Donald Trump intervened in the Navy's judicial system to free Gallagher from pre-trial detention and restore his rank after the conviction. Trump claimed he was 'sticking up for our armed forces' and that 'there's never been a president that's going to stick up for them, and has, like I have.'"

September cannot come soon enough.

ITEM 9: The Guardian reported, "A Los Angeles government program set up to provide cannabis licenses to people harmed by the war on drugs has been plagued by delays, scandal and bureaucratic blunders, costing some intended beneficiaries hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses.

"Black entrepreneurs and activists across LA told the Guardian that the city’s embattled social equity program has left aspiring business owners on an indefinite waiting list, causing potentially irreparable damage to their families’ finances and preventing them from opening marijuana shops they have been planning for years.

"Fewer than 20 of the 100 businesses on track to receive a license through the program appear to be black-owned, according to estimates from advocates, who say the community most disproportionately targeted by marijuana arrests is again facing discrimination. And even some of those applicants now face precarious futures."

Democrats.

Fighting against black people owning businesses since 1865.

ITEM 10: As Elvis sang, don't be cruel.
But Nick Lowe sang you’ve got to be cruel to be kind.

ITEM 11: The Daily Mail reported, "Joe Biden had to contend with angry protesters who yelled out accusations of groping during his first New Hampshire rally since the Iowa caucuses – prompting elderly voters who wanted to hear the former vice president to shout down the hecklers.

"After enduring a botched Iowa caucus where the state Democratic Party failed to release results Monday night, Biden flew to New Hampshire to start a new phase of his campaign – only to have two men yell accusations of inappropriate touching during his campaign event.

"The first protester accused Biden of being a 'predator' with children, said Rafaellina Mahogony, a retired insurance worker who was one of those who helped to shout the man down."

Plugs should pull the plug on this campaign.

ITEM 12: The Daily Mail reported, "Shocking moment Iowa caucus member demands to change her vote after she realizes Pete Buttigieg is gay and married to a man."

All the good-looking ones are either gay or married.

He's both.

And yes, I smell a set-up too. The only thing this guy has going for him is being gay.

ITEM 13: The New York Times (I do not link pay sites) reported, "Bloomberg Plans to Double Ad Spending After Iowa Caucus Problem.

"Encouraged by the murky results in Iowa, Mr. Bloomberg is also expanding his field staff as he tries to win the Democratic primary by ignoring the first four states. 'Those are old rules,' he said."

Make him spend it all.

ITEM 14: Fox News reported, "Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., appeared on the Senate floor on Tuesday to read aloud the question he tried -- but failed -- to ask during President Trump's impeachment trial last week when it was blocked by Chief Justice John Roberts.

"The question made reference to two individuals, including one person who has been reported to be the whistle blower who filed a complaint about Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Fox News has not confirmed the identity of the whistle blower."

Couldn't confirm after 4 months? Fox News is not doing its job then.

ITEM 15: The Washington Free Beacon reported, "The chair of Iowa's Dubuque County Democrats said he was blown away by the low turnout at the county's caucus Monday night.

"'We were blown away by the fact that we did not have the turnout that we expected,' said Steve Drahozal, chair of the Dubuque County Democrats, on the local NBC affiliate KWQC. 'We had expected higher numbers.'

"KWQC correspondent Brian Tabick reported that just 217 people caucused at a local high school in Dubuque, an Iowa city with a population of approximately 57,000."

Democrats are the starter party.

ITEM 16: The New York Post reported, "President Trump predicted Tuesday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will challenge Sen. Chuck Schumer for his New York seat and that she will 'kick his ass.'

"Trump made the pot-stirring remark during a traditional pre-State of the Union luncheon for TV news personalities. The relaxed off-the-record lunch featured bass and leek soup in the White House state dining room, just hours before Trump delivers the annual address on Capitol Hill.

"'I think she will kick his ass,' Trump said in a remark that he placed on the record."

Hey. Did President Trump read Item 8 from yesterday's highlights?

The world may never know.

ITEM 17: In his State of the Union speech, President Trump spoke of killing two bad guys.

He said, "We are joined this evening by Carl and Marsha Mueller. After graduating from college, their beautiful daughter Kayla became a humanitarian aid worker. Kayla once wrote, “Some people find God in church. Some people find God in nature. Some people find God in love; I find God in suffering. I’ve known for some time what my life’s work is, using my hands as tools to relieve suffering.” In 2013, while caring for suffering civilians in Syria, Kayla was kidnapped, tortured, and enslaved by ISIS, and kept as a prisoner of Al-Baghdadi himself. After more than 500 horrifying days of captivity, Al-Baghdadi murdered young Kayla. She was just 26 years old.

"On the night that United States Special Forces Operators ended Al‑Baghdadi’s miserable life, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, received a call in the Situation Room. He was told that the brave men of the elite Special Forces team, that so perfectly carried out the operation, had given their mission a name — Task Force 8-14. It was a reference to a special day: August 14th — Kayla’s birthday. Carl and Marsha, America’s warriors never forgot Kayla — and neither will we.

"Every day, America’s men and women in uniform demonstrate the infinite depths of love that dwells in the human heart.

"One of these American heroes was Army Staff Sergeant Christopher Hake. On his second deployment to Iraq in 2008, Sergeant Hake wrote a letter to his 1-year-old son, Gage: 'I will be with you again,' he wrote to Gage. 'I will teach you to ride your first bike, build your first sand box, watch you play sports and see you have kids also. I love you son, take care of your mother. I am always with you. Dad.' On Easter Sunday of 2008, Chris was out on patrol in Baghdad when his Bradley Fighting Vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. That night, he made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Sergeant Hake now rests in eternal glory in Arlington, and his wife Kelli is in the gallery tonight, joined by their son, who is now 13 years old. To Kelli and Gage: Chris will live in our hearts forever.

"The terrorist responsible for killing Sergeant Hake was Qasem Soleimani, who provided the deadly roadside bomb that took Chris’s life. Soleimani was the Iranian Regime’s most ruthless butcher, a monster who murdered or wounded thousands of American service members in Iraq. As the world’s top terrorist, Soleimani orchestrated the deaths of countless men, women, and children. He directed the December assault on United States Forces in Iraq, and was actively planning new attacks. That is why, last month, at my direction, the United States Military executed a flawless precision strike that killed Soleimani and terminated his evil reign of terror forever.

"Our message to the terrorists is clear: You will never escape American justice. If you attack our citizens, you forfeit your life!"

Now you know the rest of the story.
