President’s Address to Joint Session of Congress

President Trump’s Tuesday evening address to Congress was a home run, even according to some of the mainstream media’s most radical liberals.  For example, radical social justice activist and former Obama Green Jobs Czar turned CNN Commentator had this to say about the President’s speech.   While Jones’ comments centered on the President’s stunning tribute to slain Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, his point was echoed throughout the media, as the President managed to convey a message of unity and hope, consistently reiterating that his first duty is to the American people.

Here is a great overview we received from the White House summarizing the President’s key points from Tuesday’s address along with some other important points that you won’t see reported in the mainstream media.  This is not an endorsement of all of these ideas, simply an overview.  We are hearing many general ideas coming from the White House. We will be watching closely and will bring you more information as these concepts get written into bills that we may or may not support.

My Facebook Response

“Solidarity with women’s suffrage movement?!?” I was REALLY hoping this meant solidarity with a movement in a country where women haven’t had suffrage rights for nearly a century as we have, or perhaps a country in which equal pay for equal work hasn’t been the law of the land since 1963, as it has been in America, or a country where women are facing actual oppression and don’t enjoy the immeasurable opportunities we do. Can those who claim to represent women please start lifting each other up and inspiring young women to fulfill their potential in the ways our great country so richly allows instead of defining our political interests exclusively in terms of our sexual and reproductive capacities and past victimhood? Please? That’s misogyny, and it’s just as offensive coming from you, whether you’re wearing white or genitalia themed attire! Thank you.”

We need to fight back and expose the feminist rhetoric and tactics for what they really are:  liberal fundraising cause concepts designed to distract from conservatives’ positive message and effective policies by shifting the media focus to past victimization of women!

When we hear about efforts to revive ERA, we must expose the truth, that this is a laughable and impossible scheme that will only succeed in raising money for liberal groups. Click here for an explanation of the utterly laughable “three state strategy” to revive ERA.
