The video of the speech begins around 29 minutes:

A few notes from the beginning of the State of the Union Address

President Trump began his 2018 State of the Union Address by sharing acts of heroism that were revealed in times of crisis in our country this past year.  Several heroes were in the gallery with the First Lady.

He spoke of trials, including the wounding of Congressman Steve Scalise from Louisiana.  He shared gratitude for “the heroic efforts of the Capitol Police officers, the Alexandria Police, and the doctors, nurses, and paramedics who saved his life and the lives of many others; some in this room. ”

“In the aftermath  of that terrible shooting, we came together, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people. But it is not enough to come together only in times of tragedy. Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve. (Applause.)”

President Trump said that since the election:  there have been 2.4 million new jobs (including 200,00 new jobs in manufacturing).  We are finally seeing rising wages after “years of wage stagnation.”

Unemployment claims are at a 45-year low.  African American and Hispanic American unemployment is at lowest rate every recorded.

Small businesses are increasing and growing “at an all-time high.”  Stock market has gained $8 trillion in value.  Americans’ 401(k), retirement, pension and college savings accounts “have gone through the roof.”

As promised 11 months ago, we have “enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.” — “tremendous relief for the middle class and small business.”

0280_Lily Tang Williams talks about Communism_ she grew up in China_ YouTube by Stossel_ powerful anti-communist, anti-socialist, anti-tyranny message

I am including this video, not as an endorsement for the Libertarian party (I believe we need to stick within our 2-party system in order to get anything good done.

President Trump is a perfect example.  He is not a political party person, but an American.  He ran on principles closer to the Republican party.   But notice how he is viciously attacked both by Democrats, and by much of the Republican party.  He doesn’t waiver!

I am including the video below for it’s powerful anti-communist, anti-socialist, anti-tyranny message.  Let me make it clear, this is NOT an endorsement of the Libertarian party.

The following YouTube talks of 100 years of Communism.  It is not a pretty picture.

My friend Lily Tang Williams speaks in this video.  When she was a student, she escaped from China to come to this country.  You can watch her as she speaks about China, her love for the U.S.A., and her determination to stand up for our freedom here.

0274 (Blogs 0270-0275 are all about Thanksgiving) – this one is a YouTube “The Lost Secrets of Thanksgiving”

November 24, 2017

Yesterday, while celebrating Thanksgiving with one of our sons and his family — and after visiting on the phone with our son who was in Japan yesterday — our local daughter-in-law showed us a YouTube.  At my request, she emailed me the link last night.  You can watch it below:

The 9-minute YouTube is “The Lost Secrets of Thanksgiving.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peEUb107T7U

The above video is about the people we call the Pilgrims, and the Separatists that accompanied them when they set sail for Virginia from Holland, aboard the Mayflower.   The Mayflower ended up much farther north than had been planned — just off Cape Cod.  Even though they had gone so far off course, they believed that God had taken them there.  They named the area Plimoth (Plymouth).

Below is a summary of “The Lost Secrets of Thanksgiving.” Continue reading

Thanksgiving Day
November 23, 2017

One sentence from Bradford’s account of their first Thanksgiving –
after fasting and praying all day for rain – and then receiving rain after drought!
“And he [God] was pleased to give them a gracious and speedy answer,
both to their own, and the Indian’s admiration, that lived amongst them.”

In the excerpts that you will find later in this blog piece, you can read William Bradford’s account about what led up to their first thanksgiving celebration.  Bradford was governor of Plymouth Plantation for 37 years, up until his death.

[A note:  The group that left Holland were not leaving because of persecution there, but rather because of their well-founded fear that in Holland, their children would be indoctrinated away from their Christian faith.  The reason that urged them to leave all they had, and make such a dangerous journey across the ocean to a new land — was their strong desire to protect the souls of their children.

Watch this short 6-minute YouTube produced by Prager University, about the First Thanksgiving.]

The excerpts later in this blog post, are from a book called:  The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America published by Verna M. Hall:  Foundation for American Christian Education (FACE).  The YouTube below gives information about FACE, and it is also found on their website).

The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America

Many years ago, when I was home-schooling my children, someone gave me a copy of The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America.

For over 25 years I regularly gave programs in Colorado.  Every Thanksgiving season, I shared William Bradford’s account printed in this book, and below.

At the end of this blog (after William Bradford’s account) you can find out more about the book, about the publishers, how to purchase it, and how to purchase other books they publish.

What is unique about this book?  How is it superior to
most of the material taught in our public schools?

Not only does this book extensively cover the Christian history of our Constitution, but it has the text of original source documents.  That is far superior to what is done in almost all of our public schools (and even most private schools).  In most schools (pre-school through 12th, and colleges and universities) students only read or are told “reports” and “interpretations” of history — and sadly, the history is usually given from the viewpoint of people who hate our country and its Christian foundations.

What’s the Truth About the First Thanksgiving?

1.8M Views
Nov 13, 2017

Should Americans celebrate Thanksgiving as a day of gratitude? Or should they mourn it as a day of guilt? Michael Medved, author of The American Miracle, shares the fascinating story of the first Thanksgiving.

____________________________________________

Food, football, and…oppression. That’s what Thanksgiving has come to mean to many Americans.

Back in 2007, Seattle public school officials made national news by describing the holiday as a “time of mourning” and a “bitter reminder of 500 years of betrayal.”

This new narrative describes the Pilgrims as arrogant oppressors who fled persecution only to become persecutors themselves, depriving Native Americans of their land and their lives.

But this is wrong on every count.

First of all, the Pilgrims didn’t cross the ocean to flee persecution—or even England. They’d been living for over a decade in Holland, Europe’s most tolerant nation, and a haven for religious dissenters. Free from interference by the Church of England, they feared seduction—not persecution, worrying that their children would be corrupted by the materialistic Dutch culture.

Michael Medved has recorded a superb collection
of audio recordings about American History.

Below is the latest in the series of PragerU short educational videos.  This one is of Michael Medved talking about the First Thanksgiving.   You can link the YouTube video here as well.

https://www.prageru.com/videos/whats-truth-about-first-thanksgiving

There are many good resources for learning about the Pilgrims’ “first Thanksgiving.”

Sad to day, there are even more resources to find lies about the founding of our country.  Advanced Placement (AP) American History is one of those dishonest resources that push ugly lies about our founding.  AP courses in general, are painted as the very best schools have to offer (plus they provide cheap college credit, an enticement for parents).

Text of an email that arrived today from Prager University:

“Food, football, and…oppression. That’s what Thanksgiving has come to mean for many Americans. Why? Because countless schools tell students that the Pilgrims fled persecution only to become persecutors themselves by depriving Native Americans of their land and their lives. Is that really what happened? Were previous generations of Americans sold a romanticized version of the Pilgrim story? In this week’s video, nationally syndicated radio host Michael Medved tells the truth about the first Thanksgiving.

0262_Jeffco Supt Glass pushing bad teacher resources and curriculum_ “Trump Era Chaos stirred up the hatred that already existed” (editorial by Roberta Sutton)_Blogs on corrupted AP US History_Link to Prager U video about SPLC

October 22, 2017

From Roberta’s letter:  “All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, . . . ”

The hateful supplemental material (Educator Resources) — recently recommended by Superintendent Jason Glass, for K-12 teachers in Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools —  is only an expansion of what public school children have been fed for years (this includes the teaching of AP U.S. History in recent years).

At the end of this blog post, is   1)  how to write and send letters to the editor; and 2) other blogs on this site, that talk about the superintendent’s new controversial resource list and curriculumNote:  The School Board of Education is supposed to decide on curriculum to be used in the classes — not the superintendent3)  list of blogs on this site about the AP U.S. History mess.

Trump Era Chaos”
Letter by Roberta Sutton
_____________________________________________________

We’ve all noticed what chaos has emerged since Donald Trump’s election.

Right away there was a march of women against Trump who were wearing “Vagina Hats.”  There has been the surfacing of Antifa with their masked assailants, and their destruction and mayhem in Berkeley.  The NFL players have complaints about our police, and because of that, they  refuse to honor our nation and its flag and anthem.  All of them “attack” the President.

All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, but it was stirred up and brought to the fore because someone with a different belief than theirs was in charge—and Trump was going to be leading the nation in a different direction—one they didn’t agree with.

0253_Kate Smith introduced the song “God Bless America” to the United States Nov. 11, 1939_ YouTube of her introducing the song; Kate Smith 1953 TV program; autobiography; musical and entertainment career spanning 5 decades

October 1, 2017, revised 10:12 p.m. October 2, 2017

A little over a week ago, one of my sisters-in-law sent me the 1939 YouTube with Kate Smith introducing “God Bless America”.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching it in the past, and was more than happy to watch it again.  In addition to the YouTube mentioned, below there is a second YouTube, and also some information about Kate Smith and about the many years she brought entertainment to families across America.

Why was Kate Smith so popular?

Many people today say that Kate Smith was popular only because of her voice (which people loved).  They say that if people could have seen her and how over-weight she was, she would not have been popular at all.

Well, people definitely did see her — and loved her.  Not only did she have a powerful voice, and was able to sing about anything — but she was also interesting and had interesting guests.  Kate Smith had a radio, television, and recording career spanning five decades.

Millions of people loved her.

“Her inspiring rendition [of “God Bless America”] went on to sell millions of war bonds and even helped a hockey team in the 1970s win the Stanley Cup.” [source of this quote]

From 1950 to 1954 she had “The Kate Smith Hour,” a variety program which aired on CBS television with host Kate Smith.  Stars: Kate Smith, Bill Norvas and The Upstarts

Later in this blog piece, if you wish, you can watch a YouTube of a YouTube of a 1953 “The Kate Smith Hour” show (just under an hour long).

Here is a link to a short biography of Kate Smith, and notes. Continue reading
