This week, President Trump will deliver his State of the Union Address, and Democrats have chosen Gretchen Whitmer, Governor of Michigan, to deliver their response.
Who is Gretchen Whitmer? Her “State of the State” address, delivered this past week, was a painful reminder to Michiganders: Gretchen Whitmer is a deeply insecure woman.
Whereas Michigan’s previous Democrat governor, Jennifer Granholm, chose to let her actions speak for themselves and set about destroying Michigan’s economy with a steely determination, Gretchen Whitmer instead blunders about, proclaiming all the while what a Strong Independent Woman she is.
She opened the night’s remarks by lecturing the audience about their presumed sexism, in a painfully awkward reminder of a fake controversy over her personal clothing last year.
This is a classic example of Whitmer’s inability to see how she telegraphs her insecurity: She considers it strength to be condescending when she began her speech by saying:
“Everyone is looking fantastic tonight. But this year I want to get one thing straight: This is not the red carpet. Focus on the substance of my speech. It’s about issues, not appearances.”
In reality, it’s so sad that she leads this solemn address by dwelling on what she wore a year ago.
As it happened, not one lawmaker last year took the bait and said a word about her dress. Whitmer had to go to a click-bait article and anonymous comments on the Internet to find the fodder to cast herself as a victim. Her condescension was not only insulting, but embarrassingly misplaced.
The rest of the speech was a mercifully short 35 minutes, as she had no accomplishments to tout, and few ideas. She stole credit for passing “historic” auto insurance legislation. Fact check: she threatened to veto it, saying “I’m done playing games,” before agreeing to sign a watered-down version of the same bill.
The theme of the speech was “do something,” a sad attempt to paint the Republicans’ rejection of her 45-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike as an obstruction.
The gas tax hike was so unpopular, not one Democrat in either chamber even introduced it.
“When it comes to tackling Michigan’s challenges, I’ve got a Plan A and a Plan B. Plan A was simple. It was in my budget last year,” she intoned, as if everyone in Michigan didn’t know “Plan A” was the gas tax hike.
“Plan B,” it turned out, was an executive order to issue billions in bonds.
These are the Democrats’ ideas on paying for things they want: taxes, and debt.
It will be a stark contrast with Trump’s State of the Union this week: President Trump, a deal-maker, just signed the USMCA, reflecting a complex series of negotiations in Congress and with multiple foreign nations.
Gretchen Whitmer is unable to work with anybody.
She was too embarrassed to even mention her major “achievement” of last year: throwing every department into a tailspin with 147 budget line-item vetoes totaling $2 billion, plus dozens of “administrative transfers” where money was unilaterally diverted away from its appropriated purpose (e.g. roads) and into another (e.g. buses.)
At the time she said: “This is not what the people want and deserve, [but] I know that there are things that (Republicans) care about in this budget that are no longer a reality. And I think it’s incumbent on everyone to get back to the table.”
Translation: “I vetoed critical programs to force Republicans to negotiate with me.”
The gambit didn’t work. Republicans passed bills to restore most of the funding, leaving some of her vetoes on the cutting-room floor, and called it a day. She signed them.
Gretchen Whitmer is the perfect Democrat to respond to President Trump’s State of the Union Address: a bitter, insecure, and isolated executive who can’t work with anybody and blames everybody else, versus Donald Trump, accomplishing landmark deals while letting nothing bother him.
This should be an exciting speech on Tuesday.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Comes Out in Favor of ‘Awesome, Incredible, Beautiful and Wonderful’ Trans Children
AOC at her dumbest and most dangerous.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come out explicitly in favor of transgender children and denigrated Republicans for being concerned about children being abused by child-grooming enthusiasts.
“Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet.
“Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves,” she added, finishing her inane post with the hashtag #LetThemPlay.
A screenshot of the tweet can be seen here:
While dullards like Ocasio-Cortez may believe that transgender children are merely expressing themselves, the fact of the matter is that children are being indoctrinated and recruited into a dangerous lifestyle by degenerates.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on how the transgender community is abusing children, with footage from HBO’s Transhood documentary series illustrating the depravity of this movement:
A new HBO television show “Transhood” is demonstrating the inner workings of the youth LGBT movement and the depths of their depravity and perversion.
One clip features a butch lesbianic woman and her “daughter” Avery, and it shows exactly how children are being systemically abused by pederasts.
“We actually go and meet with our senators and our representatives, and after that, we go and sit and sell some of Avery’s books for a little while,” the ghoulish woman said of her daughter who she uses as a political prop.
This is when Avery expressed the sentiment that she does not want to be exploited for the pleasure of reprobates.
“I just don’t want to even have a book. I’ve done too much in this world. It’s ruined my life enough and now, everyone in this world is going to know if I sell my book, it’s going to get on the news along with me for like the 50th time at this point, and it’s going to make my life worse,” Avery said.
“A couple of years ago, you wanted people to know,” the “mother” responded.
“Yeah, I did, but I know that was a stupid, silly mistake and now I don’t,” Avery said…
Avery’s words show how transgender children can be pushed into that lifestyle by outside forces and then come to regret their actions after they mature.
Any nation, civilization or people that will accept their children being victimized by predators on a widespread scale does not deserve to exist. The idiocy of AOC and other “empowered women” could result in a new dark age.
