What I Want to Know at the State of the Union Speech

George Bush coined the term “axis of evil” in his 2002 State of the Union speech. Iran, Iraq and North Korea were introduced as nations that were sponsoring terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction. The interesting point was that most Americans were caught off guard by the inclusion of these countries as viable enemies of the United States. We had been told that the “enemy” was al Qaeda in Afghanistan.

The point is that we should have been aware of the dangers of state sponsored terrorism. The outgoing Obama administration is responsible for placing the country on the precipice of civil war in a worst case scenario or at the mercy of a series of coordinated Islamic attacks throughout the entire country in a “best” case scenario.

I want President Trump to outline reality in his first State of the Union Speech:

  1. I want to know the true status of the proxy war in Syria. Russia will never give up their facilities in Tartus and Latakia. Why is the United States supporting ISIS in Syria? Was Ambassador Stevens running weapons from Libya to Turkey to ISIS before his death? Most of all, I want to know if the government even knows who our “allies” are in Syria.
  2. I want to know the true status of the proxy war in Iraq. Iran has successfully managed to reap any benefits from the new US supported Iraqi government paid for by our treasure and soldiers’ blood. ISIS still controls Mosul as overseas’ media outlets are now reporting that the latest Mosul offensive has now failed.
  3. I want to know if the Muslim infiltrators will be purged from the government. Actually, I don’t want to know “if”, I want to know when. I want the new President to explain clearly that he understands the threat posed by Muslim “extremists” and that he has a plan to protect the country.
  4. I want to know when the Clintons will be brought to justice. This is not a matter of vengeance: we must know that this country’s two tiered justice system is over.
  5. I want to know the true status of our economy. I want the Bureau of Labor Statistics to be held accountable for their “statistics”. This means an accurate accounting of the labor force, the true unemployment rate, the quality of new jobs and the real loss of wages over the past twenty years.
  6. I want to know why Obamacare was not declared unconstitutional. If it was a tax as declared by Justice Roberts, then it is illegal since it did not originate in the House of Representatives. I want to know how Justice Roberts was coerced by the Obama administration to make this ruling.
  7. I want to see a plan to make the Supreme Court accountable to the people. Once these “justices” started to make “rulings” instead of “opinions”, their power has become absolute. This was never the intent of the Constitution.
  8. I want to see our borders secured and illegal aliens deported. We did it before and we have to do it again. The only reason for Obama’s immigration policy is to weaken our national security from within. I want the President to openly state that he will unify the country instead of diversifying us. Our strength has always been a common, united country. Obama’s objective to make us the Diversified States of America is clear: he wanted to destroy our country.
  9. I want to know how the President will address the national deficit of $20 trillion. If we do not cut entitlements and the federal government, the country will literally implode. I understand that a large number of people want the country to Balkanize and that path may now have become inevitable.
  10. I want to know that it is possible to make America great again. But I want to know the details at the State of the Union because this will require great sacrifice by the people for what will probably become a generational effort.

The above is just a wish list. I do not believe that half of America can handle the truth. I also want to point out that there are a multitude of “I’s” in this article. I guarantee that we will not have any chance of a future unless this country becomes united again. That means the “I’s” need to become “We’s”. We owe this to our children for what may become their last great hope for freedom.

    Thanks for concisely putting into logical order what has been eating at me all during Barry’s term or reign if you will.

  3. 11. I want to know when 0bama will be brought to justice. This is not a matter of vengeance: we must know that this country’s two tiered justice system is over.

    I want Our Constitution restored! (Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5)

    Note on #6: “The States are separate and independent sovereigns. Sometimes they have to act like it.” — Justice John Roberts

    Note on #9: Stop Medical Monopolies! -- https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=231674

  4. Average Joe says:

    Yup, looks like you can change “I” to we.

    As much as I’d like to hear answers to all of them I’d settle for…

    1. Closed border, illegals deported, and a return to pre 1965 immigration policy.

    2. The rule of law enforce no matter income, who you know, or who you blow.

    3. Entitlements, beyond those enumerated in the Constitution abolished.

    4. The Federal Reserve abolished.

    5. The power of any bureaucrat to “legislate” eliminated and a return of said power to Congress and the President.

    I have a few others but those would go a long way towards restoring the republic.

    PS…and Santa if your listening…I’ve been a very goo boy this year and all I want for Christmas is California to succeed from the Union. Extra homemade chocolate chips cookies if you can get it done before Christmas!!

    Most Sincerely,

    Average Joe

      David and Average Joe and all my Constitutional Conservative brothers and sisters, I applaude and I stand with you. I demand, not request nor hope, but demand that our Constitution Republic be restored. David and Joe you both raise many of the expectations that I share and these are a good start.

      President-Elect Trump has been following half of the nation during the campaign and he understands the need to restore our Constitutional Republic. I believe that he know what he needs to do. We need to trust that he gets it and we need to support him as he manages the transition and management of the administration.

      Once President Trump swears that he will defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and lifts his hand from the sacred Bible, I expect that he will go to work for the American people and start to drain the swamp.

      I trust that President Trump will continue to appoint good men and women, who are Constitutionalists, to his administration. The Congress will need to stand up and support those good men and women and respect the new President and his approach to government, regardless of their political affiliations. There is much work to be done and I for one expect that the democrats and republicans will respond reasonably to his appointment.

      The American people, even if only the half that supported President-Elect Trump, must demand justice, fair play and we muct not tolerate disruption of the new administration.

      President Obama had his and the democrats eight years with opposition but respectful opposition. The demonstrations and rallies need to stop and democrats need to stop encouraging and supporting them. It is time to get the peoples work done.

      Our Constitution protects peaceful assembly, not violent, destructive actions against people or property and so, by any means necessary our local, state and federal governments need to preserve the peace and protect all citizens rights to peaceably assemble and travel the roads and streets of our towns,

      Tolerance of violence agaisnt citizens or law enforcement must not be tolerated, regardless of the treats of further violence. If it does not stop and citizens behave like civilized human beings, then force must be met with force to secure safety and peace for the nation.

      God bless you all. It is critical that we insist on equal treatment under the law. Americans must stand up speakout and demand that our liberties be respected, our freedom of speech, religious expression, rights to life, including preborn, aging and people with disabilities, liberty and property be protected.

      We must no longer allow a small radical group of control freaks to attempt to silence us. It is time that we insist that all citizens rights be respected and protected and that all citizens assume responsibility for our selves, our families and our communities. Peace, Peter ~

  5. Well, let’s see what he has to say at his first SOTU address in January 2018.

    Yes, we as a nation are in dire straits. ‘we’ as in world wide also. We can see great Truth within the prayer of confession, Danial 9.

  7. lon a follower says:

    i found it not to be coincidental that a page from the Bible was found during the fires in Tennessee. A call to repentance. Yual (joel)1:18

  8. lon a follower says:

    The pre- innauguration story is, Not many will perform for the Trumpster. Yet remember what a showman he is.
    The past few years these events including the superbowls are filled with musiciians and songs of godess worship etc. Keep yourselves from idols.
