Bears . . .



. . . repeating . . .


No,
Claim
Fact or Explanation
1
launched an unprecedented economic boom rarely seen before
GDP increased by 4.2% in Q2 of 2018, a high under Trump. Obama surpassed that 4 times during his presidency. 
2
created 5.3 million new jobs
Jobs actually increased 4.9 million.
3
added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs
454,000 new manufacturing jobs were added. 
4
everyone’ said above would be ‘impossible’ to do
Manufacturing jobs grew at a similar rate under Obama and significantly faster during the 1990s (Clinton and Bush presidencies)
5
nearly 5 million Americans have been ‘lifted off’ food stamps
3.5 million Americans have gotten off food stamps. During Obama’s second term 5 million Americans got off food stamps.
6
passed a massive tax cut for working families
Over 75% of the Trump tax cut went to the wealthy
7
virtually ended the estate tax, or death tax
Only 0.2% of very wealthy Americans pay estate tax
8
U.S. is now the #1 producer of oil and natural gas in the world
This has been true since 2013 during Obama’s second term.
9
our economy is thriving like never before
The economy is not the ‘best’ in history and is currently showing signs of slowing.
10
“I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever”. . . legally
Trump supports a bill which would sharply reduce legal immigration. In 2019 he cut refugee admissions to the lowest level in 49 years. 
11
year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens 
Immigrants commit crimes at lower rates than native-born Americans.
12
San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in our country . . . a strong security wall was put in place . . . almost completely ended illegal crossings
The barrier ‘did not have a discernible impact’ on border crossings according to the Congressional Research Service (non-partisan).
13
El Paso used to have extremely high rates of violent crime . . . and considered one of our nation’s most dangerous cities
El Paso was never one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S.
14
(after building a barrier) El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country
El Paso had the second-lowest crime rate of cities its size before the barrier. 
15
my budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years 
Trump’s 2019 budget slashed $123 million from AIDS programs 
16
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments from birth 
There is no such thing as abortion ‘moments from birth.’ NY law does not allow abortion after a woman is twenty-four weeks pregnant, unless the mother’s life is in immediate jeopardy.
17
I withdrew the United States from the ‘disastrous’ Iran nuclear deal
The UN’s nuclear watchdog said the Iran deal WAS working and Trump’s intel chief says Iran is still complying without the U.S.

. . . you figure out which high-profile person posited these gems at his 2019 state-of-the-union address.

Don't . . .

. . . we deserve (at the very least) a president who actually 'Talks Good'?. . .

(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-says-he-doesn-t-have-agree-his-intelligence-officials-n966341)
". . . "We have very fast airplanes, we have very good cargo planes," the president said. "We can come back very quickly, and I'm not leaving. We have a base in Iraq, and the base is a fantastic edifice.". . . Brennan pointed out that Trump had criticized former President Barack Obama for announcing military moves and asked if Trump likewise was telegraphing the U.S. retreat. . . "I'm not telegraphing anything," Trump said. "No, no, no. There's a difference. When President Obama pulled out of Iraq, in theory we had Iraq. In other words, we had Iraq. We never had Syria because President Obama never wanted to violate the red line in the sand.". . ."Being in Iraq was a mistake, okay," he added. "Being in Iraq — it was a big mistake to go — one of the greatest mistakes going into the Middle East that our country has ever made. One of the greatest mistakes that we've ever made.". . ."

Comparison . . .

(from https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/watergate-2-0-trump-s-presidency-may-end-nixon-s-ncna947976?icid=related)
". . . For all the comparisons made between the scandals, much separates them. Nixon’s fall was a classic tragedy. He was a man of substance, with immense political experience and a record of presidential achievement in both domestic politics and foreign policy. His own resentments and paranoia about his perceived enemies propelled him into Watergate. . .There’s no such substance with Trump. His presidency has been one piece of tawdriness after another. To see the Trump tragedy, look to the Americans who are so estranged from the country’s institutions that they seem willing to risk blowing them up in order to be heard. . ."

One . . .

. . . of the 'good' things done by this president ? . . .


(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/big-businesses-promised-wage-hikes-trump-s-tax-cuts-what-n970081)
". . . Emerson's (Electric Co. of Sydney, OH) and other companies' payments (Emerson made a $1,000 "special contribution" to each employee's 401(k) retirement account) were a publicity bonanza for the Trump administration and the then-Republican-controlled Congress. Back in 2017, as the tax bill moved on the Hill, lawmakers claimed the cut they proposed in the corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent would trickle down to workers in the form of higher wages and bonuses. Emerson's action, and similar bonuses and wage increases, trumpeted by hundreds of companies like AT&T Corp. and Walmart Corp., provided proof the Republicans had their economic theory right. . . Or did they? For many of those same companies, a tiny fraction of the total number of U.S. businesses, executives haven't yet announced another round of bonuses or wage increases with the same fanfare — even though the tax law continues to mean billions for their bottom lines. Several advocacy groups that tracked the announcements said no new proclamations have been issued. Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative anti-tax group run by Grover Norquist which boasted last year of ongoing "good news" in bonuses and benefit increases, hasn't reported any announcement for three months. Americans for Tax Reform didn't respond to requests for comment. . . Most American businesses that announced bonuses and wage increases seem to be more like Emerson, which has "no plans to make an additional 401(k) contribution this year," a company spokeswoman said. . . That's what has made the promise of higher compensation so far elusive. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported nominal wages increased 3.2 percent in January year over year, and by less than one percent — three cents to $27.56 — month over month. While some economists have voiced enthusiasm about the improvement, other economists note that wages must grow for a sustained period to offset decades of stagnation. . ."

Additional . . .

. . . troublesome FACTS . . .



". . .Violent crime has been dropping in El Paso since its modern-day peak in 1993 and was at historic lows before a fence was authorized by Congress in 2006. Violent crime actually ticked up during the border fence's construction and after its completion, according to police data collected by the FBI. . . Democratic officials immediately took issue with the picture Trump painted Tuesday night, saying the president was using their city to justify a pointless and unnecessary wall. . ."The facts are clear. While it is true that El Paso is one of the safest cities in the nation, it has never been '...considered one of our Nation’s most dangerous cities,'" the city's sheriff, Richard Wiles, an Democrat, said in a statement after Trump concluded his address. "And, El Paso was a safe city long before any wall was built.”. . ."

Nixon-esque. . .

(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-goes-sweeping-house-investigation-russia-his-finances-n968701)
". . .  Trump, in Nixon-esque fashion, attacked the ongoing investigations he faces during his State of the Union address. . ."If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation," he said. "It just doesn't work that way!" In his last State of the Union address, in 1974, President Richard Nixon called for an end to the Watergate probe. He would resign as a result of it later that year. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters after a Democratic Caucus meeting on Wednesday that Trump's comment "was a threat." "The president should not bring threats to the floor of the House," she said, adding, "He said he wasn’t going to cooperate unless we didn’t exercise our constitutional responsibility to oversight." "The bottom line is that we are as a country, we've always had Congress do oversight over the executive branch," (Chuck) Schumer said. "That's how the Founding Fathers set it up.". . . "And the president says if you investigate me I'm not going to make progress," he said. "That's already doing what he did with the shutdown. Holding the American people hostage. He's got something to hide. Because if he had nothing to hide, he'd just shrug his shoulders and let these investigations go forward. He's afraid of them.". . . "

". . . His calls for political unity seemed particularly hollow given reports Mr Trump had mocked former vice president Joe Biden, and the late Republican Senator John McCain and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer just hours earlier during the State of the Union lunch, which was attended by several news reporters. . . Mr Trump said: “When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.” .  . He also reportedly described Mr Schumer as a “nasty son of a bitch”, and talking about Mr McCain, he said: “He wrote a book and the book bombed.” . . .Responding to Ms Pelosi’s standing ovation, US journalist Mark Gongloff wrote: “You could power Cleveland for weeks on this pure sarcasm energy”. . ."

"While he spends much of his average day in scheduled meetings, events, and calls, there is time to allow for a more creative environment that has helped make him the most productive President in modern history," she said. "President Trump has ignited a booming economy with lower taxes and higher wages, established the USA as the #1 producer of oil and gas in the world, remade our judiciary, rebuilt our military, and renegotiated better trade deals. It’s indisputable that our country has never been stronger than it is today under the leadership of President Trump."

Not Quite . . .

. . . but history CAN teach a lesson . . .


(from Thomas Jefferson;  The Art of Power by Jon Meacham)
". . . the beginning of wisdom, Jefferson thought, might lie in a meeting of the principals out of the public eye. Se he convened a dinner. Jefferson believed things could be worked out, he said, for :men of sound heads and honest views needed nothing more than explanation and mutual understanding to enable them to unite in some measures which might enable us to get along. . . No deal meant disaster. It was clear, Jefferson wrote, "that if everyone retains inflexibly his present opinion, there will be no bill passed at all for funding the public debts, and ... without funding there is an end of the government . . ."

Staying . . .

. . . Well



Of poetry, I know not much
Of life, I've learned a little
I don't profess an expert be
In politics, left, right or middle

Mechanics of most any sort
Don't operate quite rightly
No matter how sincere I try
Results I take not lightly

In love, my fortune great indeed
The reasons not apparent
My find, I treasure constantly
Of indefinite fidelity I truly am declarant

And for the icing on the cake
As by the sea I dwell
The music that I hear and make
sustains and keeps me well


At Once

Barking . . .

. . . up the wrong tree . . .

There must be more than this
We’re better than our differences
Nothing will divide us
What we share is all that makes us good
Only if we would

Don’t let me ever forget it
There’s no such thing as
‘It’s them or it’s us’
This isn’t the way it should be
We’re still barking up the wrong tree

Seems so many motivators
Live inside us just behind the scenes
Mysterious but still just
Bold and calculating
Wild beyond your dreams
Way beyond our means


United

Bridges . . .

Bill Swartwout 


Six AM
The buses aren't nearly as crowded
As the night before
Someone said there was
Music and laughter
Behind all the shutters and doors
What was all of it for

Who needs friends
There's barely a minute for breathing
Everyone here works so hard
There's no party
When I reach my doorstep
I struggle to pull out my key
Where's the meaning for me

You see but you're unaware
There's life on the other side

But there's no bridge to cross
I'm looking through the fog
For some way out of here
I've baggage here to toss

Bless my soul
I've read about you in the paper
I've seen your picture somewhere
When you speak it's in volumes and volumes
I can't hear a word that you say
Funny it happens that way

I've been told that envy's the thing I've been feeling
For your kind of work and your play
But to tell you the truth
That it's only a wish
For a new kind of day
When worry and fear melt away

Could be
That a day will come
When you just might understand

I’d like to go away
And go there to stay
But I can’t find the way

So it goes
But change never really comes easy
Resistance is felt all around
But inevitably something happens
That makes the old ship run aground
We all stare in awe of what’s found

Like me you appear to be
Looking for some meaning here


Baggage

News. . .



. . . fake and otherwise . . .



(from Thomas Jefferson; The Art of Power by Jon Meacham)
". . . The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them....Do not be too severe upon [the people's] errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, judges and governors shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions; and experience declares that man is the only animal which devours his own kind. . . "
