Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

President Donald Trump delivered his first address to Congress and it was a rousing success, with even some liberals citing it as one of his best and most compelling presidential speeches ever. He is receiving praise from both sides of the aisle for a presidential speech that was heartfelt, emotional, hopeful, and powerful.

Fox News and resident Democrat, Chris Wallace said – “Tonight Donald Trump became this nation’s President.” Even CNN’s poll gives President Trump soaring remarks for his speech to Congress.  Teller of ‘Fake News’ CNN, famous for massive oversampling of democratic voters during the presidential election, consistently finding Hillary to be the winner, except this time President Trump’s speech resonated so universally with all Americans, even CNN’s biased poll could not hide the truth.

The New York Times even went so far as to “fact check” President Trump’s speech and discovered nearly every word of President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress was true.  That is quite the accomplishment coming from the liberal publication that has been notoriously anti-Trump.

The NYT article sources each statement made by President Trump in Tuesday night’s speech covering a variety of issues such as –

  • Violent Crime
  • Immigration
  • Border Control
  • Health Care Reform
  • Labor
  • Energy

Though, while the NYT article did label some statements as true, you can bet they hedged heavily a few times, refusing to give President Trump full measure of credit in all things.

For example, President Trump addressed the rise in violent crime across the nation, stating the “murder rate in 2015 experienced its largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.” According to FBI statistic, there were an estimated 15,696 murders in the U.S. in 2015.  This is a 10 percent increase from 2014. While the NYT concedes that is a factual statement and technically true, it labels the president’s statement as “true, but somewhat misleading.” Their reason for deeming the statement as misleading? The NYT reports, crime has been “falling for a generation,” citing “In 1991, the F.B.I. estimated that there were 24,703 murders.”  Except, President Trump was not addressing the fluctuations in crime rates in a general sense. He was very specific in his comments and they were in reference to 2015’s murder rate, and not aimed at the overall trend in crime.

Other claims made by the NYT –

“We’ve defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open for anyone to cross.”

Open in parts, but heavily patrolled as well.

Individuals cannot just walk across the borders without fear of interception. Some do sneak across, but the borders are guarded by 21,000 Border Patrol agents along with a similar number of Customs and Border Protection officers at the 325 official ports of entry, which include airports, seaports and land border crossings.

President Trump said he ended a regulation that threatened “the future and livelihoods of our great coal miners.”

This is partly true but misleading.

Mr. Trump did indeed sign a bill rolling back a regulation that would have prevented coal mining companies from polluting streams. But there is no evidence that the rule threatened a significant number of coal mining jobs, or that rolling it back will create new ones.

There are only about 70,000 direct coal mining jobs in the United States. But most economists have concluded that the decline is due to increased mechanization in the mining industry and a market shift by electric utilities away from coal and toward natural gas, which is cheaper. No credible studies have shown that rolling back major regulations on coal pollution will contribute to a major increase in coal mining jobs.

It seems that the left is grudgingly giving credit to President Trump but as yet, refuses to provide a full measure of credit towards his short tenure in office.  We can expect more of these half-truths from our North Korean Gestapo style media in the future and it is up to us to do our research and take their findings with a grain of salt.

God Bless.
