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.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?
Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?
Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.
Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”
However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.
The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.
In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.
One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.
The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”
The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”
Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”
Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.
His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”
Sanders responded, “Yes.”
Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.
All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.
Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
