The Best State of The Union Speech Ever Given [Video]

47843103822_e9a7043063_kOn February 4, 2020, I listened to the best State of the Union address ever given by a President of the United States of America. It was so exceptional that I did something I never do; I listened to the speech again.

The speech itself began with a notable moment of enthusiasm from the Republican contingent in the House chamber who chanted “Four more years,” for about 30 seconds before the President even began speaking. One might have thought this would be a rare highlight during a speech that is traditionally lengthy and boring.

However, as President Trump began speaking it soon became clear that there were many more significant highlights to follow. The theme of his speech was “the great American comeback,” and he provided more than enough substance to justify adopting this theme.

America’s Comeback to Greatness and More

President Trump’s introduction was a sweeping view of all that has been accomplished for the betterment of America under his leadership, beginning with the economic boom resulting from his policies, the rebuilding of America’s military, and the successful efforts to secure our borders. He then pronounced that the “State of our union is stronger than ever before.”

Trump, State of the UnionThere are those among Americans who may have assumed that the President was engaging in hyperbole with that statement. However, any fair-minded individual, friend or foe of the President, was going to be treated to a solid and enthusiastic defense of his characterization of the state of America’s union.

President Trump moved seamlessly from one topic to another in a tour-de-force of American optimism backed by actual results in measurable terms that came because of specific policies he enacted as the Chief Executive. In terms of economics, he cited the results of job growth that hasn’t been seen in over 50 years, as well as historic lows in the unemployment rate in every category!

He tied those gains directly to the massive tax-cuts and the unprecedented de-regulation of his administration with surgical precision and pride in American accomplishment. The pattern was repeated with every subject from the rebuilding of the military through a historic investment, which enabled the destruction of ISIS and removal from the earth the two terrorists Al Baghdadi and Soleimani, to the measurable improvements in health care and the new price transparency laws for the medical industry.

There wasn’t a single arena of important public policy that the President didn’t address in the speech. Immigration, education, religious freedom, foreign policy, trade, the 2nd Amendment, and more were all addressed from a common-sense, results-based Conservative philosophy.

Moreover, the President showed that by fulfilling the promises he made in the campaign on these kinds of issues, there has been a large measurable improvement in every area. His resume is impeccable, and he made a dynamic case for re-election in November.

However, that wasn’t what vaulted this speech to the best SOTU I’ve ever heard. It was rather the extraordinary personal stories attached to the achievements so effectively throughout Trump’s address that convinced me in the end.

The Personal, Life-Changing Stories Moved the Heart

Throughout the speech, the President presented special guests whose personal stories reflected the success of his vision for making and keeping America a great, no, the greatest of nations. For instance, President Trump honored exceptional service and patriotism with two military and one civilian who were his guests.

Tuskegee Airmen, State of the UnionThe youngest of this trio was Army veteran Tony Rankins, who was the beneficiary of economic “opportunity zones” provided by Trump’s policies in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was formerly living a life of drug addiction, losing his family and homelessness, but through found a construction company investing in “opportunity zones,” and is now a tradesman with that firm, drug-free and reunited with his family.

Later the President introduced Iain Lamphier, a young man who is the top graduate of the Aerospace Career Education Program and desires to one-day attend the U.S. Air Force Academy and become of member of the newest outgrowth of the Air Force, the “Space Force,” created by Trump.

Then he introduced the lad’s great grandfather who is 100 years old, a World War II veteran, and former member of the famed Tuskegee Airman, a historic all-black squadron of pilots during the war. To further honor Charles McGee, already the recipient of multiple military honors, the President announced that he had earlier promoted McGee to Brigadier General and he has now retired as General McGee.

The third special honoree of President Trump was a civilian who was completely surprised by being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the speech. It is the highest civilian award given in America and the man who received it has been most responsible for the entire resurrection of the conservative movement in our time, beginning as a lone voice 32 years ago.

Rush Limbaugh is the greatest pioneer in modern radio broadcasting and has been the most influential spokesman for liberty and conservative thought for more than three decades. In this brief video clip, the President makes the announcement of this award, and why he is doing the presentation at that time.

While watching this presentation, I was genuinely touched because of the influence of Rush upon me since I first heard him. I began listening to this man shortly after he was syndicated on national radio and I was instantly hooked by his wisdom and humor, as were millions of others, and conservative talk radio was reborn.

Rush’s reaction was one of genuine shock melting into humble gratitude and joy for being so honored. He had announced being diagnosed with advanced lung cancer the day before on his program and now received both an honor and a great encouragement from the President. It was one of a series of wonderful moments featured in Trump’s address.

In addition, the President showed support for the struggle against tyranny in Venezuela by featuring the newly-elected President in exile, Juan Guaido, the leader of the opposition to Socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro. He touted his pro-life stance by introducing a woman and her daughter who was born pre-mature at an almost unheard of 21 weeks and is now a healthy two-year-old child and announcing a grant of 50 million dollars for advanced neo-natal research on her behalf.

President Trump highlighted his policy of expanded school choice in education with the story of a young woman who would now be allowed to attend the school of her choice due to an “opportunity scholarship,” provided by his program. And in another especially touching moment, he reunited a soldier who had been deployed to Afghanistan four times with his wife and children who were special guests of the President.

The Speech Effectively Showed Failures of the Political Left and Highlighted the Solutions

The President effectively showed the policy failures of the Democrats and contrasted them with his successful solutions throughout the speech. One of the most effective demonstrations pointed out that the drop of over 75% in illegal border crossings since May of 2019 was partly due to the bravery and service of the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE officers.

Sanctuary cities, State of the UnionHe went on to show that with the old “catch and release” policies of the Obama administration, which he ended, and the current policies of “sanctuary cities” and even “sanctuary states,” criminals pose real threats and cause real harm to American citizens. The President told the story of one criminal illegal alien who was detained by California sheriffs and then released per the state’s sanctuary laws in December of 2018.

This criminal went on a crime spree a couple of days later in which three people were shot, and one died as a result with the criminal firing eight bullets into his body. President Trump featured one of the grieving brothers, Jody Jones, as his guest and had him stand to lengthy applause.

President Trump then mentioned that Senator Thom Tillis [R-NC] who had just introduced legislation that would allow individuals and families such as the Jones family to sue sanctuary cities and states for losses if family members are hurt or killed as a result of those policies.

In much the same manner, when introducing the mother whose child had survived premature birth at 21 weeks, the President took the Democrats to task for their support of abortion until the point of birth, and in some cases beyond the time of birth.

On issue after issue, it became clear throughout the SOTU presentation that the Trump presidency was delivering sensational results, and that the policies advocated by the Left had failed before and promised only failure in the future.

President Trump Cast a Strong Vision for a Stronger America Going Forward

President Trump isn’t one to rest in his past accomplishments, and in this speech laid out concrete actions that are already ongoing or proposed to make an even stronger America possible in the future. For example, he is laboring to put into place a revamped system of immigration based on merit so that America will be attracting those persons who can contribute to the benefit of the nation and not become a perpetual burden on the taxpayer.

Inset.4.2.7.2020On the front of judicial court appointments, the President highlighted the incredible success already achieved by confirming almost 200 judges to the federal bench, including two Supreme Court Justices that are constitutionalists. His goal is to continue that trend and return the courts to their Constitutional roots insuring a stronger republic in the future.

At another point in the address, President Trump asked Congress to support a new program called “Artemis” and put America at the forefront of new space exploration. He called it “America’s manifest destiny in the stars,” and plans are to put the first woman on the moon and become the first nation to plant our flag on Mars!

Moreover, the President did not mention something almost everyone thought he would mention, the sham impeachment process. On the eve of a vote in the Senate to possibly remove him from office, President Trump ignored the failed sham and exuded stern confidence that was its own rebuke of the phony process born of the Left’s vindictive heart.

Finally, I must mention that the President touted new efforts in his administration to protect religious liberty in public education. Trump announced the plan in January of this year.

The White House said the plan is to “help safeguard students’ rights by giving education providers and students the most current information concerning prayer in public schools.” …The Education Department also will update 2003 guidance regarding prayer in public schools and streamline a federal complaint process for students alleging discrimination by authorities. …Kelly Shackelford, chief counsel for First Liberty, was at the White House for the announcement along with clients Hannah Allen and former football coach Joe Kennedy. “We commend President Trump for his strong efforts to protect America’s first freedom – religious freedom,” he said. “These revisions to the Guidelines on Prayer and Religious Expression ensure that the religious liberty of students in public schools is protected.”

This effort has the potential to shape a new generation in faith and morality and produce results that tend toward a more civil and righteous society in America. That is a future that can only enhance America’s greatness as a people by elevating our goodness as a people.

Much more was packed into this ‘triumph deluxe’ than I can relate in this writing. However, the future under a renewed President Trump and a second term promise to unleash the almost unlimited potential for an even greater and stronger America going forward.

Any American with a heart to see the nation stronger and more prosperous could not help but be encouraged by the speech. The President’s address was a spectacular reminder of what our nation has already accomplished under his leadership, with God’s help, how the future is bright and beckoning us to new heights of greatness as the world’s firebrand of freedom.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 [ESV]

There Is No America Without Christ [Video]

 

2546063399_19fa28d352_b

Thursday, July 4th is America’s annual Independence Day celebration. It is the official yearly commemoration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, proclaiming to Britain that America was no longer under their sway.

The historical basics are fairly well known. We know that the principal author of the Declaration was Thomas Jefferson, and part of the introduction, or preamble, is very well known.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Where did these truly revolutionary ideas of the basis for government come from? History tells us that the greatest source for the Founding Fathers beliefs and writings was the Bible.

The fact is that the early history of America from the time of the Pilgrims onward was saturated with Christianity. Moreover, without Christianity, America would not exist.

The First Americans were Christians on the Run

Independence Day

Pilgrim’s prayers before embarking to America

The first settlers in what would become America were fleeing religious persecution from their own European governments. Most fled from English monarchies to the New World because they could freely worship Christ here, and spread the Word of God.

One of the best examples of this phenomenon were the Pilgrims who were first known in England as the “Separatists.” They were an offshoot of the “Puritan” movement which would later escape to America and found the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

…the Separatists were hounded, bullied, forced to pay assessments to the Church of England, clapped into prison on trumped-up charges, and driven underground

After about a dozen years of suffering, in 1619 the leader, William Bradford, and his Separatist flock decided to become Christian “Pilgrims” in the New World. Among their reasons for taking up this perilous journey were these:

…their children were being worn down, and many were being drawn away by the lures of the world around them. …They had cherished a “great hope and inward zeal” of at least playing a part, if only as a stepping stone for others, in the carrying forth of the Light of Christ to remote parts of the world. Increasingly, the Separatists came to believe that America was the place God intended them to go…

From the time of the Pilgrims onward through our infancy, America was long considered as a Christian nation and the influence of the faith was not only acknowledged but encouraged in public life. Moreover, that influence was far more extensive than most realize.

What has happened especially during the last century forward has served to drive a wedge between Christian faith and government. A wedge that has only resulted in a cultural nosedive in America.

Therefore, it is reasonable to assert based on this alone that without Christianity America would never have come to be. However, if we delve a bit further into details, we would also find that America would never exist because, without Christ, Europe itself would never exist.

No Christ Means No Christianity and No Europe

Europe during the late 18th Century, when America was born was a conglomeration of various ‘Christian Monarchies’ dominated by Kings, Popes, and Archbishops. Obviously, without Christianity, there may be kings, but no Popes and the like would exist.

There would have been no Church at all, in any form, and nothing to spur Luther’s Reformation. In fact, there would have been no Renaissance or Enlightenment period without the Christian Church.

Inset.2.7.4.2019Much of the art and literature of the Renaissance directly reflected Christian beliefs and biblical imagery yet its humanism was a severe critic of Christianity and the Church. Moreover, the ascendance of ‘reason’ in the Enlightenment was used in antagonism to Christian faith and influence.

Without Christianity, none of that exists, and the history of Western Civilization vanishes. What would exist, if something did at all, is literally unimaginable, at least in any semblance of detail.

It might be also said that without Christ there would be no Islam since Jesus is a revered figure in that faith. However, Christ is not the God of Islam, and all Muhammed needed for his tyrannical religion was the Old Testament and delusions of grandeur.

Moreover, other parts of society we take for granted but do not normally connect with Christianity would be seriously altered or not exist at all.

Modern Science Began with Christians

It is perhaps not common knowledge that the pioneers of modern science were mainly of the Christian faith. Sir Issac Newton, the discoverer of gravity and enumerator of physical scientific Law was such a one.

For Newton the world of science was by no means the whole of life. He spent more time on theology than on science; indeed, he wrote about 1.3 million words on biblical subjects. Yet this vast legacy lay hidden from public view for two centuries until the auction of his nonscientific writings in 1936. Newton’s understanding of God came primarily from the Bible, which he studied for days and weeks at a time.

Though science is not as much associated with faith today, there is one thing in science which has not changed, at least in theory. That is the “scientific method,” developed by Sir Francis Bacon in 1618.

he proposed a new science based on experimentation, inductive reasoning, and the betterment of the human condition.

4th of July

Sir Francis Bacon Statue Grays’ Inn Law School London

Bacon believed that we should observe and learn as much about the world as possible and that the Word of God authorized such investigation. The way to accomplish that was with experimentation.

The tenets of the “scientific method” still hold today. In brief, those tenets declare that scientific inquiry must be observable, testable, repeatable and falsifiable.

That is, in order for a hypothesis, aka a scientific educated guess, to be verified it must pass those criteria. It then reaches the status of a theory, and closer to established scientific fact.

The nearest to settled fact that exists in science is scientific Law, such as the Laws of Thermodynamics in physics. A theory can only reach the status of Law after an extended period of time in which the theory is tested over and over for perhaps centuries.

All the scientific advances of our modern age owe their existence to inquiry by the scientific method in one fashion or another. If Christianity did not exist, it is reasonable to speculate that the discovery of electricity and the harnessing of its power, along with all that it has made possible would never have happened.

Be Thankful This Independence Day, and Work to Preserve Liberty

Many who live in today’s America would disagree with much that has been written here. As has been said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but no one is entitled to their own facts. 

4th of JulyThe overwhelming preponderance of factual evidence points to the conclusion that America was founded by Christians with biblical principles undergirding the foundation of the nation. On Independence Day we should both embrace and be eternally thankful for that truth.

Moreover, we should work to preserve and practice that truth at all levels of society, including in the government. Americans should relearn a crucial observation made by John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States, and son of John Adams, the second President.

The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.

If that spirit and practice can be renewed in this nation called America, we may once more realize and be grateful that God’s Word declares,

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD… Psalm 33:12 [ESV]

Honoring The Fallen, and Mourning Our Loss

Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day in America. This is the time we have chosen to honor those who fell in defense of our liberty and to mourn our losses as a people.

Most of the nation will be celebrating the holiday in one fashion or another, especially since most will also have an extra day off from work on Memorial Day itself. A large portion will hold get-togethers with family and friends in large cities and small towns across the land.

Many folks will also gather at cemeteries amidst flags and flowers that decorate the graves of those who sacrificed life for freedom. They will hear inspiring music and listen to speeches by political figures and other local notables designed to honor those brave fallen warriors.

Honoring the Fallen

Memorial DayMemorial Day began as Decoration Day at the conclusion of the U.S. Civil War. It started with small local observances in which the graves of soldiers from that conflict were decorated with flowers and remembered in prayer.

Within a short span of time the event had gained such popularity that calls to make it an official national holiday began in 1868. On May 30, 1868, the first observance of “Decoration Day,” was officially held at Arlington National Cemetery.

On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to decorate the graves of the more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery.

In the intervening years, the holiday officially became declared “Memorial Day,” with the object to remember and honor those who have died fighting in the U.S. military. The date was fixed on May 30 until 1968 when Congress,

passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees; the change went into effect in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.

There are many ways one can observe Memorial Day. I count it a blessing to have an entire weekend to contemplate the inspiring and somber reminders of what liberty has cost, and to honor those willing to pay the enormous price required to secure it.

Public ceremonies of Memorial Day are a fine thing and I hope that everyone will have the opportunity to attend one of those in their own community. However, whether or not one decides to attend, it behooves us all to take some time and express private gratitude for those lives laid down in our defense.

Memorial Day is also an apt time to ask ourselves if we as Americans have managed to learn anything from the sacrifices of our armed forces down through the years. Have we learned to cherish the precious and fragile freedom bequeathed to us, or are there some little-noticed losses among us that threaten liberty itself?

Mourning Our Loss

One of my personal habits during Memorial Day weekend is to dust off some of my favorite war films. It is always inspiring to view the recreations of valor displayed by past heroes.

Memorial DayOne of my selections this year was a reviewing of the film “Patton,” starring George C. Scott in a brilliant portrayal of the controversial WWII general. Patton himself was a strange mix of what might be called today a ‘spiritual but not religious,’ person.

In one scene late in the movie, Patton is frustrated by the heavy snowfall on the eve of the famous “Battle of the Bulge,” and orders the head chaplain to write a ‘weather prayer,’ in hopes that the weather will clear. The dialogue between these two is fascinating.

Chaplain: ‘I’m not sure how this will be received. Praying for good weather so we can kill our fellow man?!”
Patton: “I can assure you because of my intimate relations with the Almighty that if you write a good prayer, we’ll have good weather.”

The chaplain obeys the order and Patton reads it himself that evening amidst the blowing snow. Lo and behold, against all the weather predictions, almost perfect weather arrives the very next day! Patton’s response was a bit humorous,

“Get me that chaplain. He stands in good with the Lord and I want to decorate him!”

Whether or not God intervened in response to the prayer I will leave for the reader to judge. In any case, it seems to me it would be difficult to imagine such a conversation on the battlefield today.

Which points to what I believe is perhaps the most critical loss in our nation. One that is certainly worthy of mourning, and after that, worthy of recapturing with God’s help.

Memorial DayThis mournful fact is the loss of our sense of national dependence upon God in modern times. Some evidence of this claim is that America and much of the western world has recently seen their demographics undergo a quiet yet decisive shift in religious preferences. Studies from 2015 show that,

The religiously unaffiliated, called “nones,” are growing significantly. They’re the second largest religious group in North America and most of Europe. In the United States, nones make up almost a quarter of the population. In the past decade, U.S. nones have overtaken Catholics, mainline protestants, and all followers of non-Christian faiths.

This is the first time in American history that those who claim ‘no religion’ outnumber those who affiliate with any religious group. However, if we look back to the beginning of our republic we will find that we began with copious reliance upon, recognition and recording of the LORD’s mighty hand at every turn.

Acknowledging the LORD from the Beginning

An early incident from perhaps the greatest President of all, George Washington, when he was merely a colonel, is illustrative. Peter Marshall and David Manuel recall the following incident when in the summer of 1755 Washington,

…and his lifelong friend Dr. Craik were exploring wilderness territory in the Western Reserve …a band of Indians came to them with an interpreter. The leader was an old and venerable chief, who wished to speak to Washington. …this is what the chief said: …I have traveled a long and weary path that I might see the young warrior of the great battle. It was on the day when the white man’s blood mixed with the streams of our forest that I first beheld this chief. I called to my young men and said, “Mark yon tall and daring warrior? He is not of the red-coat tribe – he hath an Indian’s wisdom, and his warriors fight as we do – he himself is exposed. Quick let your aim be certain and he dies.” Our rifles were leveled, rifles which, but for him, knew not how to miss …’Twas all in vain; a power far mightier than we shielded him from harm …ere I go, there is something that bids me speak in the voice of prophecy: Listen! The Great Spirit protects that man, and guides his destinies – he will become the chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire.

Memorial DayThat story had further confirmation from other sources which were written about in a 19th-century history of the United States. According to those sources and Washington’s own personal journal, in that battle,

The twenty-three-year-old colonel had two horse shot out from under him and four musket balls pass through his coat!

In an example from just after then-General Washington became commander of the first Continental Army, he wrote new orders that demonstrate how serious the young commander was about acknowledging the LORD. These orders, among other things, stated,

It is therefore strictly enjoined on all officers and soldiers to attend Divine service. And it is expected that all those who go to worship do take their arms, ammunition, and accoutrements, and are prepared for immediate action if called upon.

What Washington insisted upon he also practiced to an even greater degree on a personal level. He awoke each morning at 4:30am and started the day with at least an hour of Bible study and prayer, even while serving as the first President!

Many other examples can be cited where the sacrifices of warriors throughout American history were combined with strong dependence upon God to deliver victory for liberty. For those who gave their lives in those efforts, we stand in awe of the faithful courage to believe in the liberty they fought for even without seeing the victory in this life.

As we remember and honor the lives given to secure our freedom, we can also mourn the increasing loss of dependence on the LORD’s love, grace, wisdom, and power in our land which put that freedom in peril. For if we as a nation continue to insist on walking away from the LORD, one day He will grant our wishes and disaster will soon follow.

This Memorial Day we should remind ourselves of those who have shed their blood for our liberty from tyranny up to this very day. Moreover, let us as everyday individuals who love America strive to keep and strengthen those rights and liberties which true and brave patriots have defended for over two centuries, so help us, God.

So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. James 2:12 [ESV]

Dance-Electronica song ‘Welcome To The Future’

‘Welcome To The Future’ – Dance-Electronica song by Michel Montecrossa 

http://www.audiomack.com/song/mirasoundgermany/welcome-to-the-future

Michel Montecrossa says:
“Loyalty to the cause of the people and giving this cause a voice is the aim of my concerts. ‘Welcome To The Future’ sings of the struggle as well as of the joy of future building. The people want a happy future and that’s what I want too. In the songs I show my perspective of the way leading out of trouble into a future that will truly set us free and will end all the misery.”

Welcome To The Future

“This is a song about love and liberty.
A song about the future world’s key.”

Welcome to the future! Welcome to liberty!
Welcome to the future and the end of poverty!
No more hardship during childhood.
No more rape, no more slavery.

The free use, I say, of our liberty,
my friend, means also the settin’ free
of all the others, yes, all the others that are here
and of all mankind, not just you and me.

A lie is just a lie and no way to liberty.
Falsehood is falsehood and surely not the key.
The lesson of the past is teachin’ us somethin’ true.
Learn it and the past won’t come back on you.

I tell you, our life, yes, our life on earth
is a love poem, from heaven is its birth,
that we all are meant to translate into
earthly language and make it earthly true.

All our life is indeed the key
to discovering and becoming the great real.
In life itself, I say, there is the seed
of the good and the love that we all need.

Welcome to the future! Welcome to liberty!
Welcome to the future where we will see!
Welcome to the future that will set us free!
Welcome to the future and the end of all the misery!

“Welcome to the future, welcome …”
