Real-Time Stream of the State of the Union

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here is how I live-streamed President Donald Trump’s magnificent State of the Union Speech on my Facebook page Tuesday night:

– Three living D-Day heroes. How magnificent is that?  And Buzz Aldrin to boot?

– First thing I noticed tonight: No Sheila Jackson Lee in her customary aisle seat!#WheresSheila?

Second thing: San Fran Nan seems to have her mouth gerbil under control, at least initially. Wait and see…

– “Tonight I ask you to choose greatness.” – #Democrats sit on their hands because American greatness is what they’ve been working so hard to kill for half a century now.

– “Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps…” #Democrats sit on their hands…

– “Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over half a century” – #Democrats sit on their hands…

– Pelosi’s Mouth Gerbil is starting to get more active as Trump goes through all these wonderful economic numbers…

– “My administration has cut more regulations in a short period of time than any other administration in its entire tenure.” #Democrats fainting in the aisles…

Comment from a friend:  “His unwavering condemnation of late term abortions was probably one of the most heroic statements ever made by a POTUS in a state of the union address. He named names and was scortched earth with his proclamation of the evil intent of Democrats.”  Yyyyyyyyyyyyep.

– “We have unleashed a revolution in energy. The U.S. is now the #1 oil and gas producer anywhere in the world.” #Democrats having heart attacks as we speak…

– “Members of congress, the state of our union is STRONG.” #Democrats can’t stand it!

– THE #PELOSI MOUTH GERBIL IS BACK IN FULL THROTTLE!

[Editor’s note: It was.]

– This passage on prison reform is so awesome that even the #Democrats have to applaud. Thanks to Kim Kardashian, of all people, for making it happen, because that’s what she did.

– It’s hilarious watching San Fran Nan so obviously having to work so damn hard to keep that  #mouthgerbil under control. She’s like a 2 year-old kid focusing on a Fischer Price toy.

– Kamala Harris is looking for a Catholic to persecute….

– “I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.” #Democrats scowl and sit on their hands….

 – #Fauxcahontas is sitting there wondering if she should take another DNA test…

– “Tens of thousands of Americans are killed by lethal drugs that flood into our cities…the savage gang MS13 operates in 37 of our states…” #Democratscouldn’t care less…

– Trump introduces the family of the 80 year-olds murdered by an illegal alien, and half the #Democrat caucus sits on its hands. Amazing.

– THAT #PELOSI #MOUTHGERBIL REALLY GOT ACTIVE WHEN TRUMP PROMISED TO NEVER ELIMINATE ICE.

– “The proper wall never got built – I will get it built.” #Pelosi in a panic now – the #mouthgerbil is trying to break out!

– Protected by a barrier “El Paso is now one of the safest cities in our country…simply put, walls save lives.” Simply put, #Democrats don’t care.

– “One century after congress passed the law giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in congress than ever before.” #Democratsfinally find a reason to cheer “USA” for once.

– #Pelosi‘s #mouthgerbil loved that stuff about women!

– Oh, here comes the whole “infrastructure” thing… #Trillions

– ‘pre-existing conditions’ – the magic words!

– #CocaineMitch looks awful yellow. Is Hep-C going around in the DC Swamp?

– Can #Democrats at least stand and clap for the little girl with cancer? Maybe even #AOC and her radical Islamic buddies? What a beautiful child.

– Sure is nice seeing #BrettKavanaugh sitting there in the audience. But where is #RBG?

– “The time has come to pass school choice for Americans’ children.” The #Pelosi #mouthgerbil just went into overdrive!

– #ChuckSchumer smiling as Trump talks about his party supporting baby-killing.

– Boy, the bipartisan warmonger lobby hated that discussion about all this peace breaking out with North Korea, huh? #Pelosi‘s #mouthgerbil damn near escaped while that talk was going on.

Comment from a Friend: “I would say this speech is Reaganesque, but his courage and in your face-ness has created a new adjective. Trumpian.”

– “America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion and control… we were born free and will remain free…America will never be a socialist country.” #Democrats devastated and depressed.

– Trump now talking about ending the “endless wars” that great nations do not fight. The Bipartisan Warmonger lobby hates this passage as well.

– Hey, remember when #Democrats used to be in favor of PEACE? Yeah, good times…

– I love how #Pelosi keeps pretending she can still read.

– Ocasio-Cortez and the radical Islamic Democrats hate Timothy Matsen. Literally hate him. Isn’t that sad?

– What a sweet moment that “happy birthday” singing was. Very nice.

– “And his father cried out with joy – it’s the Americans! It’s the Americans!” God Bless America.

– Oh my God, this story about Herman Zeitchik helping to liberate Dachau has me in tears.

– “Together we represent the most extraordinary nation in history” Indeed. If only we can maintain it. #MAGA

– “We must always keep faith in America’s destiny.” If only the #Democrats agreed.

Best. State-of-the-Union. Speech. EVER.

That is all.

8 Bits of Intrigue to Look for in Tonight’s State of the Union Event

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, that whole “climate change” scam isn’t working for us, so here’s an idea – let’s use new talking points! –  The grand global climate scam has been running out of steam over the last two years since Donald Trump assumed the presidency and more and more Americans wake up to the reality that they have been heinously deceived by the Al Gores and Leonardo DiCaprios of the world.

So what are the scammers to do? After three solid decades of seeing them simply ramp up the shrillness of their alarmist rhetoric every time their movement began to lose momentum, the alarmists who now run the American Meteorological Society have decided to take a new tack: Tone things down and and become less shrill and more subtle with their brainwashing instead.

Don’t misunderstand – it will be the same old stuff, with every tropical storm described as being completely unprecedented, with every wildfire declared to be a sign of “permanent drought”, giving scary names to every significant cold front and with every thunderstorm pronounced to be the “strongest on record.” But they’ll be calmer about it all, and the plan is to stop blaming your SUV for everything – because pretty much nobody is buying that anyway – and begin instead to connect it all directly to advocacy for … wait for it… leftist government policies!

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  

“Is it humans or is it not? We really need to get beyond that,” Bernadette Woods Placky, an Emmy award-winning meteorologist who directs the Climate Matters program at Climate Central, told me. Climate Matters is tracking climate trends in 244 cities—including a steadily warming Phoenix. “We are still not getting enough people to talk about it in the ways that matter to human beings in their homes, in their communities, for their family,” she added. “So it is making those connections in ways that really matter to people. It’s a jobs story. It’s an agriculture story. Connect it to the farm bill; boom!”

Boom, indeed. This new scam plan will last about 3 months or until Al Gore puts together another slide show, whichever comes first. Then it will all go back to the traditional alarmist hype, because that is the literal dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change, of which Mr. Gore is the reigning Pope.

The State of the Union address is tonight – here are eight key things to look for that the media isn’t talking about this morning:

  • Will Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee have her customary seat on the aisle so she can get her face on television? – Is the Pope Catholic (ok, that’s an open question)? Does a wild bear poop in the woods? It is a very safe bet that she is already ensconced in her favorite seat as I post this piece up around 7:00 Central Time this morning. There she will sit all day long, forcing staffers to bring her food and sit in for her when she takes bathroom breaks, in her annual effort to show her constituents how important she is. It is possibly the most pathetic tradition in the DC Swamp.
  • Will Ruth Bader Ginsburg give the nation proof of life? – Don’t count on it. And don’t count on any of the news fakers at CNN, MSNBC or the three “major” broadcast networks to make any mention of her absence.
  • Will San Fran Nan have that gerbil running around in her mouth again this year? – Ok, it was probably just a poorly-fitting bridge, but Nancy Pelosi spent the entirety of Trump’s speech last year looking for all the world like she was chasing some sort of living being around in her mouth with her tongue. She’ll be seated behind the President at the podium this time, so the camera will be on her all night long. Hopefully she’s had a trip to the orthodontist since then, because it was not a pretty spectacle.

  • Will West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin have to get Chuck Schumer’s permission on when to stand and applaud this year? – He did last year, and was famously caught on camera quickly sitting down after Schumer gave him a dirty look.  Pathetic.
  • Will Democrat freshmen stage some sort of a disruption? – Don’t be surprised if freshmen Democrats, led by communist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Muslim extremists Ilhan Omar and Rhashida Tlaib, stage some sort of disruption during the speech. It would be in keeping with their distinct lack of character.
  • Will any white man from the Virginia Democrat delegation show up in blackface or KKK robes? – After this last week, it’s a perfectly valid question.
  • Will the President call Democrats out for their ongoing advocacy of killing live-born babies? – He certainly should, and he should do it in the most unambiguous language possible.
  • Will the President call the fake news media out for its ongoing protection of the blatant racist, infanticide-supporting Governor of Virginia? – Assuming Ralph Northam has still not resigned by the time President Trump takes the podium tonight, how could he not?

There you have them – eight points of intrigue to keep your sharp eyes out for during this year’s rendition of the most tedious and tiresome bit of Kabuki Theater the DC Swamp rolls out to entertain the masses each year. I still wish the President had decided to go deliver this thing out in Pittsburgh, St. Louis or the Rio Grande Valley last week, but hey, it is what it is, so let’s all make the best of it.

That is all.

Ralph Northam is What Happens When Our Fake News Media Fails to do Its Job

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

At last!  A failed mayor of a corrupt New Jersey city is running for president!  Thanks, Democrats! –  Yes, friends, Senator Spartacus Jazz Hands, aka Cory Booker, has joined the fray in the ballooning competition to see which Democrat gets to lose to Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.  Aren’t you all thrilled?  I know I am.

We had to have Sen. Jazz Hands in the race for the entertainment value alone. Think of him as the 2020 version of John Kasich, only without all the “my father was a mailman” references. Spartacus will be the guy who just keeps hanging around saying all sorts of boring and stupid stuff while not winning anything, but he’ll have the added value of throwing the frequent childish fit when he doesn’t get his way about something. That’s when the Jazz Hands come out.

Yes, truly, Sen. Jazz Hands was an essential element for this cycle’s field of Democrat candidates. His entry into the race leaves us with just one more potential candidate announcement remaining who simply must get in in order to complete the perfect Democrat line up of freaks, misanthropes, communists, losers and frauds: Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Irish Bob simply must get in for the simple reason of all the fantastic social media memes his fake nickname will spawn. Plus, the potential for him live-streaming his next colonoscopy for political reasons is just something the nation cannot live without.

Jump in, Irish Bob, the water’s just fine, and the doctor is ready.

How does this even happen? – When you look back on the reality of it, it’s hard to imagine anyone with a mind creative and evil enough to make up the week the Democrat Party just had. Think about it: This week alone, here is what they have done:

  • Had two sitting governors, the mayor of a major city, and members of 8 different state legislatures sign, propose, endorse or pass bills that legalize infanticide;
  • Had the narrative about the infamous “Trump Tower Meeting” conducted by Donald Trump, Jr. in October 2016 be revealed as utterly fake news;
  • Had one of the party’s major presidential candidates endorse elimination of all private health insurance, a key piece of the communist agenda;
  • Saw the head of the American Gestapo, er, “Special Counsel” issue an indictment against Roger Stone that conclusively proves there was no “Russia Collusion” by the Trump Campaign;
  • Had the State of the Union Address scheduled for Feb. 5, giving President Trump a golden opportunity to spend 90 minutes educating the nation about what a freak and horror show their political party really is;
  • Had their favorite Supreme Court Justice fail to show up for work for the fourth consecutive week;
  • Saw President Trump take the right side – the side of freedom – in Venezuela while many of their own members and media toadies showed their true colors by supporting that country’s current thug socialist dictator;
  • Had the January jobs report come in at almost double the number predicted by all the idiot “experts”;
  • Saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average jump right back up over 25,000;
  • Saw President Trump make huge progress in getting his trade deal with China;
  • And finally, the coup de gras, saw the release of a yearbook photo showing the Democrat Governor of Virginia made up in black face, standing next to a guy in full KKK regalia!

Now, that, folks, is a No Good, Terrible, Horrible, God-awful, Very Bad Week.

And it’s only Saturday.

Seriously, how do you miss this? – If I’m Ed Gillespie, the GOP candidate who lost the Virginia Governor’s race to Ralph Black Face Infanticide Northam, I’m on the phone this morning with the high-dollar firm that was in charge of my campaign’s opposition research effort demanding a refund.

Seriously, how does someone miss something so rudimentary and still hold themselves out to be political professionals? And it isn’t just Gillespie – Northam had three opponents in the Democrat primary, and none of their oppo people caught it, either. It took a conservative blogsite – Bigleaguepolitics.com – with a no doubt bare bones staff to finally take a look at Northam’s college annuals and find the photo that everyone else had missed.  Amazing.

Then there’s the fake news media, most especially the news fakers at the Washington Post. The Post had plenty of fake reporters on staff to dedicate to finding women from 40 years ago who would slander Alabama Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, had dozens of fake journalists scouring every facet of Brett Kavanaugh’s background, but had zero interest at all in assigning some intern to review the high school and college annuals of a Democrat gubernatorial candidate.  Funny how that works, huh?

Here we have an overt racist (Northam’s college nickname was – I kid you not – “Coon Man”) and endorser of outright infanticide sitting in the Governor’s mansion of Virginia in the year 2019, and no one in our fake news media had the slightest whiff of that prior to election day?  Please.

Note to all you demented Democrats: This is what happens when our nation’s entire Fourth Estate has consciously and intentionally abrogated its duty to perform as the people’s advocate in our society. Ralph Northam and the shame he has brought upon you this week is simply reaping what your party has sown.

I’m cool with that.

That is all.

The Border Debate is Groundhog Day All Over Again

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So here we go again. – Well, it’s like Groundhog Day: we keep waking up in the morning to listen to congressional Republicans use the same tired old talking points on the border issue.  “The Democrats should do the right thing,” they say, followed by “they should come to the table and negotiate in good faith.”

Yeah, like that’s gonna happen, right?

Invariably, the Republican speaking is some Chamber of Commerce guy or gal who secretly likes open borders for all the cheap labor that provides to all the business interests that fund their campaigns every two years. The real elephant in the living room on this border issue is the same as it was on Obamacare repeal: establishment Republicans refusing to follow through on promises made during their campaigns.

The most valid question in the entire mess is “hey, you Republicans just finished two solid years of having the presidency along with majorities in both houses of congress – if we have a real border emergency, how come you didn’t do anything about it when you had the chance?” And don’t give me the standard crap about their needing 9 Democrat votes in the Senate: If it’s a real emergency, you find a way to get it done through the budget reconciliation process (where only 51 votes are required) and take care of it.

So now all the government workers – without whose presence it took a full month before even the slightest impacts on the American public were felt in a handful of our nation’s airports – are back at work and getting paid to do whatever it is they’re supposed to be doing, and we’re all supposed to say “yay!” for that.  Awesome. Yay.

And for the next three weeks we’re going to be treated to yet another round of D.C. Swamp Kabuki theatre in which both sides will preen and posture and recite talking points written by other people and nothing real will get done. At the end of this latest act, President Donald J. Trump had best either refuse to sign the atrocity of a bill he is presented – because it surely will not contain the $5.7 billion border security funding for which he has been advocating – and shut the government down again, or sign the damn thing and declare his long-promised and long-delayed national emergency.

I say he’d better do one of those two things, because the only other option he is going to have left to him will be to sign whatever bill he is presented and take whatever pittance it contains for border security and pretend that it is some sort of “win”. The thing about that is, nobody’s going to buy it, not even his most fervent fans. If President Trump capitulates on this issue, his presidency would be well and truly over, and he might as well resign and go back to public life.

Here’s the good news: He won’t capitulate. That’s not in his makeup. Come Feb. 15, he’ll be out there fighting just like he always has, and we’ll all be able to see pretty clearly which Republican members of congress are really out there with him.

There won’t be many, and the ones who aren’t – like Marco Rubio – are the real problem here.

About that State of the Union… – Speaking of D.C. Swamp Kabuki theatre, where is it? The government’s back open, so where’s that letter from San Fran Nan renewing the invite to the President to come and enthrall the congress and all of us out here in Flyover Country who all the coastal sophisticates think have nothing better to do on a Tuesday evening?

Ok, honestly, I really don’t give a damn about the State of the Union, and would just as soon see it go away entirely. But that isn’t going to happen, and as things currently stand, this represents another real missed opportunity for the President.

He should be out there somewhere giving a speech tomorrow night. It could be on the National Mall, or as I discussed a couple of weeks back, in one of the great Red State cities like Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Detroit, Dallas, San Antonio or even down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

As it has traditionally been carried out, the entire ritual around the State of the Union has become an incredibly tiresome exercise with pretty much no utility at all for real people. In her despicable fit of petulance, San Fran Nan has handed the President a golden opportunity to change its entire nature and bring it out to the people he constantly claims to be his sole focus in office.

If he misses this opportunity, it will be a real loss for his presidency.

That is all.

Trump Forgets He’s Putin’s Puppet, Moves to Depose Socialist Thug Maduro

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is not how this whole “puppet” thing works.  Not how it works at all. – President Trump apparently forgot on Wednesday that he’s supposed to be a “puppet” for Vladimir Putin. Yesterday  morning, the President recognized Venezuelan Opposition leader Juan Guaido as the rightful President of that country, essentially de-legitimizing the socialist thug Nicolas Maduro.

Surely the “puppet” of Putin had to be aware that is putative “boss” – according to the Democrat Party and the fake news media – has, over the last two years, poured tens of billions of dollars into Venezuelan oil assets, spending billions more to prop up Maduro in the process. Indeed, it appears to actual neutral observers that the advancing Russian hegemony into the South American nation is a major reason why the Trump Administration is hoping to depose Maduro and replace him with a leader who plans to restore the democracy and freedoms Venezuelan citizens formerly enjoyed.

This is not the behavior of a puppet. Indeed, the Administration appears deadly serious here, with the President himself warning that “all options are on the table. Always,” related to the situation. To reinforce that point, when Maduro announced he was ordering U.S. diplomatic personnel to leave Venezuela within 72 hours, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded thusly:

“The United States does not recognize the Maduro regime as the government of Venezuela,” the statement said. “Accordingly the United States does not consider former president Nicolas Maduro to have the legal authority to break diplomatic relations with the United States or to declare our diplomats persona non grata.”

Pompeo went on to warn Maduro to avoid endangering U.S. personnel, or face “appropriate actions.”

Reports late in the day had Venezuelan troops loyal to Maduro shooting at some of the millions of citizens who took to the streets in support of Guaido. It’s easy to shoot and kill innocent people who stupidly allowed themselves to be disarmed by the country’s previous socialist thug, Hugo Chavez. It’s much harder and more futile to fire back at U.S. Marines backed up by American air cover and gun ships.

It is long past time for Maduro and his fellow thugs who have been starving the Venezuelan people (the average Venezuelan has lost 24 lbs. in the past year) to be deposed, and we should all hope the Trump Administration is intent on backing up its words with force if necessary. Unlike all of Obama’s mis-adventures in the Middle East and Africa in support of radical Muslim interests, this conflict, right in America’s back yard, is worthy of U.S. involvement.

It’s your move, Nancy. – With a pair of late-night tweets, President Trump, for all appearances, seems to have backed down to San Fran Nan in the famous battle over the State of the Union address:

This decision is, to say the least, odd. President Trump, as we have repeatedly seen, is not a man to just back down from a fight, so that is most likely not exactly what this is. There are most probably other factors at play of which we are not currently aware, but probably will be soon. The key thing to remember about Donald Trump is that he always, unfailingly, treats every situation as a negotiation.

Over the past couple of days, for example, we have seen both House Majority Leader Stenny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jame Clyburn assume positions in conflict to Pelosi’s related to negotiations over border security issues.  Clyburn has even proposed legislation containing the President’s requested $5.7 billion in border security funding, but with the caveat that it could not be deployed to build a “physical” barrier along the border.

That’s a giant step away from Pelosi’s offer of one dollar. It also represents a compromise that would allow both San Fran Nan and the President to save face.  Trump would get exactly the amount of money he requested and still be able to work to find other means of expanding the border barriers. Meanwhile, Pelosi has never said that enhanced border “security” is immoral, just a wall.

Ann Coulter and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would both go nuts, which would be the clearest sign possible that it was a pretty solid deal.

So, it could well be that there are negotiations ongoing behind the scenes that are about to get the fake partial government “shutdown” resolved over the next few days, and the President decided that it is best not to rock the boat, at least for now.

But as we have also seen many times before, Mr. Trump keeps his options open, and can turn on a dime. So it would be foolish to think these two tweets represent the end game here. They were simply Trump’s next move in some ongoing negotiation.

That is all.

Pelosi Hands Trump a Golden Opportunity to be the Disrupter Again

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

By dis-inviting President Donald Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address to a joint session of congress, Speaker San Fran Nan provides the President with a golden opportunity to do one of two great things for our nation:  Eliminate the State of the Union tradition entirely, or move it to America’s heartland, where it belongs, and deliver it to real Americans.

Contrary to all the bad information spread all over social media yesterday, no president is under any constitutional obligation to give this speech.  All the constitution requires of the president is that he or she “from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Right up until the despicable Woodrow Wilson decided to start making a speech in 1913 to congress to satisfy this obligation, American presidents had done it in writing. Somehow, the nation survived.

The truth is that this annual bit of Kabuki Theatre is a tremendous waste of time, nothing more than a tedious opportunity for a president to brag about successes that may or may not be real, for members of the opposition party to sit on their hands and scowl while he does so, and for mental midgets like former Illinois congressman Luis Guitierrez to get up and walk out. The entire exercise is incredibly tiresome and frankly not good in any way for the country.

President Trump would be doing the nation a huge favor by dispensing with this nonsense altogether. Just put the final version of the speech in the U.S. mail on January 29, addressed to Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and spend the rest of that day getting rid of more of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama. Productive work is always a good thing.

But if the President decides he must deliver a speech in order to take advantage of the opportunity to speak to the nation on national television unfiltered by the preening peacocks in the national fake news media, then why not take it out of the cesspool that is Washington, D.C., and move it to a place where real Americans live and work and breathe the flyover country air?

Take it to Pittsburgh, one of the great cities of America’s Rust Belt, which is experiencing a tremendous renaissance in recent years, and which led the way in delivering Pennsylvania’s electoral votes to Donald Trump in November, 2016. Rent the city’s largest arena and deliver the speech to 15,000 appreciative Pennsylvanians.

Or take it to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the state the Pantsuit Princess couldn’t be bothered to visit, or Detroit, Michigan, states that hadn’t voted for any GOP presidential candidate in this century, but that helped put Trump in the White House in 2016.

If you want to take it to the heart of the Heartland, there’s always St. Louis or Dallas, both great cities with big, secure airports and millions of real citizens who would rush for the chance to witness a formal presidential speech.

But if he really wants to make an impact, if he really wants to focus on the border security issue, take the speech to San Antonio or even the Rio Grande Valley, fill the arena with 15,000 Texans, and invite every mother and father and sister and brother who have lost loved ones to violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to occupy the seats closest to the stage.

Regardless of where the speech is held, invite every member of congress to attend as well, but ensure that they all must stand on-line with everyone else, enter the arena along with everyone else, and sit in random seats out among the real people, so that they can experience the speech as real Americans experience it, and maybe even have a conversation with a real American or two while they’re doing it.

Wouldn’t that be something?

Donald Trump is a natural disrupter – always has been, always will be. He doesn’t just ignore stuffy and stupid and non-productive traditions – like the annual White House Correspondents Dinner – he destroys them. It’s why he was elected to the presidency in the first place.

By sending him her incredibly dishonest and embarrassingly vapid letter, Speaker San Fran Nan has handed Mr. Trump a golden opportunity to play the disrupter again, and do it in a way that turns a tedious and tiresome Washington D.C. tradition into an event that involves and benefits real, ordinary Americans.

Of course, the most likely outcome here is that the President will, later today, simply inform the Speaker that her concerns about “security” issues are absurd, and that he will be at the House Chamber at 9:00 ET on January 29 to deliver the speech as she invited him to do on January 3, which by the way was already two weeks into this fake, partial government “shutdown.”

But wouldn’t it be wonderful, wouldn’t it be a fantastic thing if he did something else?

Yes, yes it would. Just do it, Mr. President, do it for the people.

That is all.
