A Thriving State of Our Union
Nena Arias | February 10, 2020
At this year’s State of the Union Address by President Donald Trump, we heard a more than glowing report of his accomplishments during his administration as president. We have witnessed his accomplishments constantly as reported on the conservative news channels. I say conservative because the liberal media does not report them. They do just the opposite. They criticize and demean everything he does.
The SOTU address was a triumphant report, yet we saw a clear divide as Republicans and most of America was celebrating these many outstanding reports, while most Democrats in the chamber were not only not satisfied but demonstrated rage. They were disgruntled, disdainful, scornful, snobbish, prideful and showed sneering body language. The contrast was more than noticeable and blatant. You have to ask yourself, why? Why are they not happy that America is thriving under this presidency? Don’t they constantly say they have the best interest of Americans at heart? What is happening? Why do they pout instead of rejoicing?
The House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, was the most despicable of all as she sat behind the president acting like a spoiled child displaying a tantrum by making childish faces during the president’s entire address. She topped off the night by physically ripping up her copy of the president’s speech. An act that just sickened our stomachs. And these are the Democrat lawmakers that took an oath of office to not only protect and defend the Constitution and the laws of the land to the best of their ability but invoked God in their solemn oath by saying “So help me God”?
The distasteful attitude of the Democrats might even be justifiable if they had a glowing report of what they have achieved during the Trump administration, but the contrary is true. They are known as the “do nothing Dems”.
These disgruntled angry Democrats could care less that the unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in a very long time, especially for minorities it’s the lowest in history, thanks to President Trump. The unemployment rate for women reached the lowest level in almost 70 years, and last year alone, women filled 72 percent of all new jobs added, thanks to President Trump.
Americans are not only experiencing record low unemployment but real wage growth in decades. America lost factories during the previous administrations that had left the country because of heavy regulations and high taxes, but thanks to President Trump removing excessive regulations and lowering corporate tax, we now have 12,000 new factories and many are coming back from abroad. There is record lows on unemployment across the board among veterans, the disabled, and even among workers without a high school diploma. A record number of young people are now employed. America is now energy independent. Something that other presidents only talked about, but Trump got it done. The list of his accomplishments in just a little over three years is more than impressive. What is there to pout about? Oh yeah, I get it, it’s because all these accomplishments have been brought about by President Trump and his effective policies. The Democrats loathe Trump because he won in 2016, an election the Democrats have been fighting hard to delegitimize.
At his SOTU, President trump acknowledged and promoted to Brigadier General a most dedicated and deserving 100-year-old patriot who served in three wars in spite of not yet being granted his full rights by the country he faithfully served. If that is not something to applaud about, I don’t know what is. Trump said to this selfless man, “Our Nation salutes you”, yet, the angry Democrats didn’t applaud the extraordinary service of this man. They sat on their hands.
I do not need to go on about the anger and bitterness of most Democrats in Congress who are not rejoicing at the prosperity of our country for the first time in a long time. They are enraged that America is better under President Trump and their failed policies are falling by the wayside in total failure. Their bankruptcy as a party is more than obvious and they are facing total impotence in their fiercest attempts to bring Trump down in disgrace.
Little do the Democrats who hate Trump know that they are fighting against God. No, I am not saying Trump is God, heaven forbid. What I am saying is that God put Trump at the helm of our nation at such a time as this. All this if for God’s purposes for our nation and not for Trump. But God has always chosen to use human elements to carry out his will “on earth as it is in heaven.” Daniel 2:21, God says “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings.”
We must give honor where honor is due. President Trump is a man who gave up a lot in order to serve this country. He gave up a life as a very successful businessman; he has sacrificed a lot financially to enter politics. Every year he donates his presidential salary to different causes and charities. He has been falsely accused of so many things and called every nasty name in the book, yet he is still standing. He and his family were willing and have been willing to be thrown under the bus of the leftists through constant hatred, criticism, scrutiny and lies, lies, and more lies. He won the election fair and square.
His outstanding accomplishments have been remarkable even while constantly being fiercely attacked in every way possible, yet he stands. An elderly lady said in a news interview that Trump deserves to be dressed in a superman costume because he has accomplished so much in spite of all of the vitriol that has been hurled at him. At this point, Trump knows, and we know that it hasn’t been Trump alone, it has been God who is calling the shots and putting out the fires and cannonballs that have been fired at him since even before winning the 2016 presidential election. This is God manifesting that he is in control. To God be all the glory and a special “thank you” to President Trump and his family.
God is and always will be the Sovereign over all. He directs history and the affairs of men and nations and we must always be sensitive to his operations to see and know what he is saying to us and what he is doing in the world and in our nation.
My advice to all the God-haters is that we must never fight against God! We will never win.
