I listen to this speech very often. I miss him, he brought a lot of people together. When Sandy Hook happened he was there giving support, and he was trying to make tougher guns laws. However, Congress blocked him. I wish Trump would follow in President Obama, instead of putting anger, and fear into people. I feel that since Obama left office, our country is being divided. Its just sad to see our history being repeated. I want to support President Trump, but I can't because, I don't believe that Mexicans are rapist, or murders, I don't believe in separated children from their mothers, and what happened in Virginia was so heartbreaking.

Della Russell (8 days ago)
People voted for President Trump, because he said that he would bring the factory jobs back into the United States. President Trump also discussed taxes, among other important things.

The deception that made him president, but bypassing this. God, knew that Obama would be president, before He formed Obama in his mother's womb. The Antichrist will be able with a great speech, of deception to deceive the people along with a few signs, that God will allow him to do. The thing is this, Obama was a surprise, for the people something new, and different a black man with the right looks, with a great sounding voice, and the words where tasteful. And the itching ears church close their ears, to important issues Obama brought up were also over looked. Some African American pastors deceive their congregation telling them how to vote, and we got excited especially black people, and missed understood the real motives, changing the laws of the Bible. People will use the name god, because they believe there are many god, and Obama use the name god, so the church folks would think he believe in the only living God. We believe in the Bible, know that homosexuality ( sodomite) is a sin, it is also against nature. And it's easy for them to think he's a Christian he believe in God, but at the same time he's not speaking about God of the Bible, and we won't hear them speaking, the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. We should learn from this, and in the next election, we should really listen, pay attention, and study these people, before we vote.

Obama have lifted my hear on my neck that day but I got to know him that he was biggest lies of all. He was huge disappointment at the end. I woul prefer Bush. He was dangerous and stupid but Obama was dangerous and clever.
https://www.politifact.com/personalities/barack-obama/ Obama wasn't a liar, not like past presidents, and especially not like Trump.

Bruce Jefferson (11 days ago)
His real name, Barry Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia. Every word of that speech has been proven a lie. Lies when crafted well and backed up buy a bought media can elect a president in an unbridled democracy. The possibility of an election like his gave concern to Franklin and Jefferson. Backed by Geroge Soros who dreamed of abolishing the US Constitution and making America a slave state run by the UN. For those who would rather hear beautiful lies than hard truths, he was the man.

What made him president was the deep state that chooses who they wish and rig elections. They did it twice for Obama. No way would the people vote for him for a second term
Robin18us and they wanted Trump for what reason?

How sad he changed and went hard left. Why? Obamas’s inner demons? Or Michelle Obama’s hatred for whites? Her victimhood? Even though there was a quota that got them both into Harvard? He was probably sincere at the beginning and then became seduced by a global agenda and sold out America. From day one, Obama was an expert in Propaganda techniques. Sociology 101. He made himself a blank screen, a core propaganda technique. People project their inner values onto him and believe in him. BUT he became hateful, divisive and then global. He sold out his people. Really sad. Obama could have done so much for us but I guess he felt above it.

Trump wanted to prove that whites are better than blacks as president. Boy, oh boy, did Barack prove that at any color is better than racism and bigotry. Trump just proved that some white presidents, well, just 1 so far, can’t outperform a skinny, mixed, middle class man.
What we had was meaningful, hopeful, love, unity, unbreakable and mesmerizing. What we have now is pure 💩with a mad 😡 face. If Trump’s mission to make America white again with his rhetoric, he’s making white look dirty.

Medical Technologies are strictly not to be used to attack the one being treated or divert/distort the treatment direction . right? Advanced medical technologies should be used strictly to serve humans or the patients" but not to hurt their bones and limit their daily activities. I wish these troops were around me/surrounded me so that I can stop using bad features of good machines and materials to hurt my feet bones and my general health....making me totally sleepy and limiting my walk span to a very short one while I was like Cross country runner before they started using that machines and materials .....to treat me, actually hurt me. The machine and materials (results of advanced technology) strictly should be to treat not to hurt helpless man like me.
