President Donald Trump urged Americans to come together to “Choose Greatness” in his State of the Union address on February 5, 2019.
“Members of Congress, the State of our Union is strong,” President Trump said as members of Congress chanted “USA! USA!”
“That sounds so good,” President Trump noted.
America is on a roll, and the only thing that can stop it is foolish wars, politics, and partisan investigations.
“We must reject the politics of revenge” and work for the “common good,” President Trump said.
“Together we can break decades of political stalemate, we can…build new coalitions.”
“The decision is ours to make. We must choose between greatness or gridlock…vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction. Tonight I ask you to choose greatness.”
“We are just getting started.”
“Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue-collar workers.”
“Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps.”
“We are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world. Not even close. Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in nearly half a century.”
“African-American unemployment, Hispanic-American unemployment, and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded. Unemployment for people with disabilities has also reached an all-time low. More people are working now than at any time in the history of our country. 157 million people at work.”
“We are a net exporter of energy.”
President Trump focused on Christians’ ability to get off drugs. President Trump highlighted the story of Matthew Charles, the first man to be released from prison in accordance with President Trump’s First Step Act.
Relatedly, President Trump vowed to put the drug cartels out of business. Troops are at the border to meet the caravans. “This is a moral issue. The lawless state of our southern border is a threat…to all Americans,” Trump said.
Democrats live behind walls. Why can’t our country?
“Simply put: Walls work, and walls save lives,” President Trump said.
Women in the Democrat caucus gave a rousing ovation for Trump’s announcement that there are more women in the workforce than ever before. “You weren’t supposed to do that!,” the president joked. “Don’t sit yet, you’re going to like this! We now have more women serving in Congress than ever before.”
“USA! USA! USA!” Congress chanted.
“That’s great,” President Trump said.
President Trump demanded Congress pass a bill “to ban the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”
“We were born free, and we will stay free,” President Donald Trump vowed.
“America will never be a socialist country.”
“Great nations do not fight endless wars.”
“Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead.”
“Our biggest victories are still to come.”
“We do the incredible. We defy the impossible. We conquer the unknown. This is the time to re-ignite the American imagination.”
“This is the time to rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty…that link us together as American citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.”
“I am asking you to choose greatness…We must go forward together…We must keep America First in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must always keep faith in America’s destiny…”
“Thank you, God Bless you, and God bless America,” President Trump said.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
