    State of the Union 2018

    key points for this week's address

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/26/trum...migration.html

    According to the White House, the speech will focus on five main policy areas: jobs and the economy, infrastructure, immigration, trade and national security.

    Trump will also address the immigration framework the White House previewed earlier this week, which offers a path to citizenship for nearly 2 million undocumented young people in exchange for $25 billion in funding for border security and draconian cuts to current legal immigration levels.

    This SOTU speech might get bit overshadowed by the latest WSJ reports on Peggy Peterson-Stormy Daniels hush money payment/shell company scandal and resiggnation of Trump bud Wynn as RNC finance bundler. There were already shell companies/money laundering allegations following Bannon's claims that has landed him an interview with Mueller.

    As for broader politics, won't be too surprised if more of GOP base revolted and turned on Trump, Javanka wing of moderate neocons, Wall Street, Big Biz GOP alliance. Bannon, Ann Coulter, Tucker, Freedom caucus could be part of growing list.

    Will he be talking about "day of the rope"? Want to hear about "day of the rope". Don't really care about the other stuff.

    Rand Paul insinuated that someone told him that he was being tapped by the feds while he was running for president, I wonder if we are ever going to hear the whole story on this. I think it will be like the JFK files that we waited all this time to see and we still didn't get to see everything.

    I would expect he is still tapped if he has not been checking . I am sure they are keeping tabs on people they find to be a lesser risk to the establishment than Rand .

    Now imagine you are hearing bad things about Rand and allow them to brainwash you into hating him. Would you break his ribs if you were his neighbor and a professional rib breaker?

    Ron Paul's 'The Real State Of The Union'

    Tonight's State of the Union speech will be in equal measure gloating and glumness depending on which political party you ask. As usual there will be plenty of mugging for the cameras with the artificial idea that there really any fundamental differences between the two. The warfare state will get its big boost as will the welfare state. Plenty for everyone in the dreamland that is the US global empire. But what is the real state of the United States? How about our security? Our prosperity? Our liberty? Today's Liberty Report is completely uninterested in political parties or making bumper-sticker points. We're digging down to the real state of the union. Please join us...
