For the first time, the Democrats’ relentless push to transform America into a socialist country has been called out and denounced in spectacular fashion by President Donald J. Trump.
The president gave a masterful performance in Tuesday’s State Of The Union address where he was able to speak directly to the American people and smacked the ball out of the park before a national television audience.
Trump hit all of the right notes while white-clad Democrats steamed but it was his refusal to accept the inevitability of socialism that has been preached by Twitter demagogues like Bernie Sanders and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that resonated the most.
It was a towering performance and one day, Trump’s demolition of socialism may be ranked right up there with Winston Churchill’s iconic 1946 “Iron Curtain” speech that sounded an alert on the menace of communism and predicted the Cold War.
“America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free.”
“America will never be a socialist country.”
Comrade Bernie was visibly upset as Trump drew a line in the sand.
"We are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country," Pres. Trump says.

While Americans who value their freedom, dignity and economic prosperity should rejoice, Trump’s speech resonated very differently with the purveyors of a poison that has resulted in millions of dead bodies throughout history and has miserably failed everywhere that it has been implemented.
However, it was the high priestess of the know-nothings AOC who stands to lose the most if the nation rejects the siren song of socialism and following her acting like a petulant spoiled brat during the SOTU, she went directly to MSNBC to defend the doctrines of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.

Progressive Democrats accused President Trump of engaging in scare tactics for his warning in the State of the Union address about new calls for socialism in the United States.
“I thought it was great. I think he’s scared,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told reporters when asked about Trump’s remarks. “He sees that everything is closing in on him and he knows that he’s losing the battle of public opinion.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a Democratic Socialist who has soared to political fame following her victory in a Democratic primary last summer. She has joined other liberals in the House in calling for a single-payer healthcare system. She also voiced support for higher marginal tax rates on the wealthiest households, as well as the “green new deal” that would fund programs to create clean climate jobs.
The New York lawmaker described Trump’s comments as “fabulous” and said he “has no substantive proposals to counter.”
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), a co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, argued the group’s proposals aren’t extreme, noting a number of them have been implemented in a number of countries in the Western world.
“I think he’s, you know, he’s worried about the good ideas like Medicare for all and taxes on the wealthiest and a green new deal and he wants to paint it as socialism,” she told reporters,.
“And I think he’s worried and he wants to paint it as socialism, but these are actually policies that every industrialized country in the world almost has instituted and built their societies on.”
The 29-year-old taco bar revolutionary and her fellow socialists have been among the greatest defenders of the failed state of Venezuela and their masterful exploitation of racial and identity grievances have left the door wide open for them to waltz right into power backed by an army of millennials who are the modern example of what Lenin once referred to as “useful idiots” during his own rise.
Did Trump just slam that door shut right in AOC’s smug face? Time will tell but the tide may be turning.
