Trump went through a ruthless, unfair and grossly partisan special counsel investigation for 2 years, and is hours from beating back a stunningly dishonest and bad faith impeachment-

Yet here he is, basking in a record of peerless accomplishment, giving one hell of a speech

⁦President Trump has accomplished more in three years than any prior American President. Pelosi and her corrupt Democrat career politicians seemed to be disappointed.

Good evening - I'd like some advice. Where would be the best place to send a donation toward the goal of retaking the House? That denture-rattling old tyrant just tore it for me tonight. Ever since she paraded across the Mall with that giant gavel I've wanted to see it shoved up her...nose. This last stunt just sent me to eleven.

Pelosi just violated protocol by not giving traditional State of Union introduction: "Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States."

She said: "Members of Congress, the president of the United States"

So many excellent comments here.

I thought the President was battle ready for this speech. In his last SOTU he did more than reach across the aisle with a speech that had even the white clad harpies sitting in awe it was so beautiful.

Tonight he ripped them all apart by demonstrating all that he has done for the country and all that he intends to do to ensure that they cannot push America back into a socialist hell again. Pelosi looked cheap and stupid and frankly deranged.

Pelosi's act dishonored the institution and destroyed even the pretense of civility and decorum in the House. If this is the Speaker's "drop the mike" moment, it is a disgrace that should never be celebrated or repeated. In a single act, she obliterated decades of tradition.

It there’s now a story about the speech tearing.

JM Hanes

Hello kiwinews!

I really like Dalia al-Aqidi's message. She's an Iraqi American who is running to unseat the poisonous Ilhan Omar. If you scroll down the Federalist article, you can find her video campaign ad, which is great. She's the first campaign I've contributed to in this election cycle.

If you find other likely Republican challengers to Dem seats, pleast let me know! I desperately want us to take back the House.

GUS

The ugly bitch, tore up the speech in 4 thought out bunches. Certainly, she was aware that she was on CAMERA, WORLD WIDE. She didn't care. And truthfully, it was planned and calculated.

WHO DID SHE IMPRESS.

Dave (in MA)

Tlaib (D-Hamas) also flounced.

DrJ

Next time give her some Charmin.

He should have printed the speech on toilet paper for her.

When I was an undergrad (Michigan) there were hawkers selling everything imaginable, and some that weren't. One was a roll of toilet paper with a picture of Woody Hayes (the Ohio State Coach) on every sheet.

"Wipe Woody and Go Blue!"

They sold well.

Thank you JMH - what a fascinating bio Ms al-Aqidi has. It's probably too much to hope that Ilhan O's dirty dealing will catch up with her before the election - better to vote her out first. There is no hope of voting out the scaley-snouted, barnacle-encrusted, trough-snuffling D hacks here in Georgia.

I happened to see that segment when I decided to check out the reaction over at CNN. Jennifer whose-it (former governor) looked like she were sea sick. LOL. They were clearly having a not-so-great night. I thought Rick Santorum did an excellent job of defending the pres, saying that this was not a "base" speech any more than other presidents' speeches were. I wanted to check out MSNBC too but I couldn't find it on my channel guide.

GUS

A-Bob, the PRESIDENT gave a VERY positive pro-America speech tonight. The FULL COMMIE/DEMOTARD PARTY, was there and ergo required to listen. Our President didn't do a victory lap on the FAILED COUP ATTEMPT/ATTEMPTS. He killed PELOSI et al, with relative kindness.
YOU SAW THE RESULTS.

JM Hanes

Finally found MSNBC . They are airing a re-run of Adam Schiff's closing remarks in the impeachment trial! Not kididing!

GUS

JMHANES. You go girl!!! There was NOTHING about the PRESIDENTS speech, that was about his "BASE".
Nothing. His speech was about FACTS. It was about being PRO-AMERICA. It was about what has been accomplished, despite, the FULL COMMIES, attacks and hate. NEVER ARGUE against your ENEMIES position, nor your foes view point. FULL COMMIES LIE ...all the time. Not most or some of the time, rather....ALL of the TIME.

jimmyk

kiwinews, the conventional option would be the NRCC: https://www.nrcc.org/

I don't know if they're trustworthy or too establishment.

Barbara

So, what is Van Jones' argument? The President is not just appealing to the African-American community, he is doing things that benefit the people in that community. Therefore, the democrats had better beware because the President will garner the votes of African-Americans.

And this is bad because? Just what does Jones want? More Obama divisiveness and poverty or an America in which everyone can thrive?

Another Bob

Personally, I wouldn’t give a dime to the NRCC.

JM Hanes

Van Jones is an Obama Democrat, and he is warning other Democrats that Trump is making a serious play for their most reliable demographic. and that they underestimate him at their political peril.

JM Hanes

My 12:03 was meant for Barbara.

My dear Barbara, I'm so glad to see you around more and more.
Van Jones is a racially based, self pro-claimed COMMUNIST. (or maybe more accurately, a wannabee pretend Commie).
Not to be TOO trite, but, Van Jones opinions are worthless. He wants to be relevant, and even and obviously moreso, Van Jones, wants to get paid.
The African-American "community" is just WORD SALAD.

Most State of the Union speeches are forgettable and pro forma-

That was a Trump tour de force, and given the unfair pressures and unhinged attacks on this president, his resilience and persistence alone on behalf of the American people seem almost superhuman.
====================================
Yes they do, and I think he is uplifted by prayer. Now I am heading to bed. Good night, all.

Barbara

JMH and Gus,

I agree. Van Jones is having a difficult time on these panels because he sees and understands exactly what President Trump is doing. The President's programs are not partisan; they are rational and premised on the reemergence of a thriving American economy.

At some point, Jones is going to have to decide what is more important to him: the victory of an outmoded political party for the sake of his socialist philosophy, or the realignment of voters of all ethnicities in support of policies and programs that foster American values to the benefit of everyone. As I see it now, Jones is running out of weasel words.

KevlarKid

Jones is a radical commie.

Dave (in MA)

Next year, Nancy's copy can be printed on mylar.
If she's still Speaker.
If she's still alive.

anonamom

There was NOTHING partisan about that speech, unless Democrats don't want their fellow citizens to do well.

(Which is exactly what one would guess from their policies.)

The most amazing thing about the CNN -Van Jones clip was how he was saying "we need to do this" and "we need to do that" if we don't want this Trump guy to take our trusty black voters from us.
Specifically--males.

Barbara

Jones is a radical commie.

I know, Kev. And it's kind of amusing to watch him fidget.

Jones is an intelligent man. The President brought him on board with his prison sentence reforms. President Trump's outreach to minority communities which heretofore have been considered the sole proprietorship of the Democrat party has unnerved him.

I don't know or believe that Jones will abandon his philosophy, but I sense that he believes the President is sincere in his efforts. The more that the President succeeds, the more difficult it should become for the far left to cling to their unworkable, failed ideas. That's the idealist in me speaking. The Obamas and Sanders never will change; the Joneses — just maybe.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

And if you look at the other panelists they KNOW Van Jones is right.
The Dems really ARE flirting with disaster.

Look at their faces.

I thought the SOTU was the kick-off for Trump's campaign. Here's what I (we) did. Here's what I plan to do. Here's what they said we couldn't do. They were wrong. Here's what they want to do next. I won't let them.

He had a great cast of Americans in the gallery to allude to with stories that matched up well with his values. I choked up a little with some of them. Like the segue from introducing a 13 year who wants to join the Space Force to his grandfather a 100 year old Tuskegee Airman. That was powerful stuff.

IIRC that was the same man who brought the coin to the Superbowl coin toss.

I did notice though that he was a little off his game at times. There was a difference in his voice from the very beginning. Kind of like he had a cold or a sinus blockage.

Theo

Yes, much more of a campaign speech — very much like an acceptance speech at the convention— than a traditional boring old SOTU. Remember how Bill Clinton would drone on endlessly about his proposals? I expected him to list every stoplight he was plann8ng to install in every small town.

The speech obviously got rave reviews here and of course was visciously panned by Democrats and their mouthpieces.

The real question is how it played with voters who are not committed to Trump but are open to being won over?

For the most part these speeches are forgotten within a week. But this one is the opening salvo in what promises to be a hard fought re election campaign.

KevlarKid

Barbara--- i know Van Jones fr his time here in Oakland and the Ella Baker Project.

We were on opposite sides of crim justice wars.

He's dyed in the wool and has always fancied himself a Trojan Horse.

To your point, he understands Trump is taking the winning message to the American people.

The Democrat donor class is missing it wholesale.

Jones is a pragmatist while those media panels not so much being donor class driven. Obama scooped Jones up out of an enviro here in Oakland where he was not beholden.

Jones realizes Obama ushered in Trump. Now he's watching Pelosi et al, stuck on stupid, do the repeat cycle.

On the coronavirus I guess I'm in the DrJ camp, more or less.

We're never going to find patient zero or that person is already known and won't be revealed.

What I mean is that the leap from bats, or whatever, was a natural fluke or some scientist at the Wuhan level 4 facility screwed up.

I don't think is was engineered as a bio-weapon but if they were culturing the coronavirus as an isolate at the lab I can imagine one of two things happening. A spontaneous mutation, or cross-contamination that created a slightly modified version that made the leap to man easier, or a scientist inadvertently infected by accident that allowed the virus to adapt within a new host mammal.

My concern now isn't so much how it started, it's will it mutate again after having had thousands of humans to experiment upon, so to speak.

This is not going to be a good week for the Dems.

Yes, a campaign speech but an effective one. CNN called it “dazzling” but also “divisive.” Trump won the first time by energizing the people who agree with him, no matter how much it infuriates those who disagree. Apparently he is going to use the same strategy again.

I enjoyed the talk of software testing, roll-outs and the more dramatic, yet ill-considered, let's dismantle the old system because we won't need to revert to it because we have thoroughly tested the new system.

Not.

The first two had involved me when I was working for the Investment bank after leaving Quotron. I didn't do beta testing for Quotron at the new job as I did at the older one. Too busy with the new job. But when they told me they had a new version with new features ready for release I'd take a look at it with a practiced jaundiced eye since we were using their product.

At that point I was doing due diligence for my new firm. We're using the product so do I want to upgrade? Me and a couple of "geeky" super-user brokers would play with it. If there was a bug we found it quickly.

Quotron aborted several client PC software roll-outs because of us. We wound up being considered an integral part of their QC program. If my firm hadn't tested it, it wasn't ready for release.

jim nj

Back-end server software upgrades, if required, were never done on production servers. It was tested on a non-production server over a period of weeks.

No matter what we did we always had a plan in place to revert to the older software if a problem occurred. It was just common sense planning. So we never dismantled old infrastructure until we were certain the new one was working properly.

Syria war: Turkey will not let Syrian army advance in Idlib, says Erdogan

" Officials from Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group, pushed back on that, saying that DIA based its information on propaganda. There is agreement, however, on one thing: The death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi did not degrade the jihadi group.

The DIA said in the IG report, that following Turkey’s military operation to rout out Kurdish militants in northern Syria, ISIS self-claimed actions rose from a monthly average of 55 attacks to 66 attacks.

The DIA detailed in the report that the figures of ISIS claimed attacks were pulled from the group’s online claims."

Yes, ISIS is still active in Syria, but I wouldn't believe all their claims. I think their is a qualitative difference even if you accept their claims. These are smaller scale actions. A motorcycle bomb instead of a car bomb. An assassination rather then an assault.

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2020/02/04/the-top-us-general-in-the-middle-east-visits-iraq-for-talks-to-salvage-relations/

There comes a time where the Iraqis are going to have to get serious about their national security instead of playing political games.

The last time we left Iraq, rather stupidly, under Obama's direction and desire, they were nearly overwhelmed by ISIS. And Iraq asked us to come back.

I would make it clear to the Iraqis that if we leave again, we are not coming back and they can deal with a resurgent ISIS on their own. The PMF units can fight ISIS. With a little luck they'll kill each other off.

“I guess they shouldn't be flying.”

The comments about software development methods caught my eye. Back in the day, I did that kind of software (largish, hard-real-time, safety-critical).

Agile? Delivering every six months? No kind of Agile I’ve heard of delivers that infrequently. More like 4-6 weeks. And with the focus on delivering working software, it creates pressures to skimp on analysis/design and testing. Just seems like a bad idea to me. “Software changes, intended to introduce new capabilities or fix deficiencies, often introduced stability problems and adversely affected other functionality,” is a pretty standard symptom of that issue.

The discrepancy lists? In that kind of development the spec is massive. Tens (hundreds?) of thousands of requirements. Any failure to fully meet a requirement goes on a list. 800 is not a shockingly high number to me. They all get categorized, based on certain definitions of the severity. Thirteen highest priority also isn’t shocking to me. I’d assume all are truly high-consequence problems, but of very low probability.

Net: Not great but not as bad as the story made it out to be.

Good morning. Pelosi should be in jail this morning. She destroyed a historical document. I believe that State of the Union addresses are stored at the National Archives. If you have visited the National Archives,the docents are very serious about instructing visitors about the historical importance of the documents on display. Don't even think about taking a picture of fragile documents that are stored in light and air sensitive glass cases.
I can't believe the contempt and disrespect of the Democrats.

Another Bob, the article seemed to mix hardware and software problems together as well. As for the 6 month timing, you can do releases that way. It is simply a timeframe for accumulating coherent sets of things. You can go full Agile and release new function hourly as Amazon does to consumers. Why do that when the field can't absorb the changes at that speed. The 6 months is a balance between fast upgrades and capacity for deployment.

Note, in a 1991 study for the Air Force including the then Joint Strike Fighter I recommended a versioning approach to upgrading systems over time.

My perspective today is that in a world where IP is stolen almost immediately, survival requires fast deployment of new capabilities. The 6 month pace will bury the Chinese faster than it will bury the F35 user community.

Henry, good point about the mix of hw and sw problem. The way you solve hw problems and the timeframes do tend to be markedly different from sw.

Sure you can release sw at any rate you want/need, from never to as fast as your build system can churn them out. The six-month cadence to the military end-user seems fast, but I’d be curious about the time box of the internal sprints. Mostly I get concerned about whether the internal release rate is allowing for the necessary analysis and integration testing.

(What is “versioning approach” is this context?)
