Last night, President Trump gave his first State of the Union Address. Trump touted the greatness of the American people, listed some accomplishments of his first year (a booming economy and job growth, the GOP tax cut, deregulation, the crushing of ISIS, the end of the Obamacare mandate, etc.) and some things still to be done that he hopes can involve bipartisan cooperation.
HUD Director Dr. Ben Carson is leading a new initiative designed to help residents of public housing acquire the necessary skills to get out of public housing and into private rentals or home ownership.
Tonight, President Trump gives his State of the Union Address. A lot of pundits are already analyzing it without even knowing what he’ll say. I’ll spare you that waste of time and just wait to talk about it tomorrow, after it’s actually happened.
House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff is protesting yesterday's party-line vote to release the Nunes memo on alleged FBI surveillance abuse without letting the FBI and DOJ vet it to censor anything that might compromise their sources and methods.

President Trump is taking flak from Republicans for his suggested DACA compromise that would reportedly offer a pathway to citizenship for up to 1.8 million children of illegal immigrants.
The New York Times is still trumpeting a story about President Trump ALMOST firing Robert Mueller. That’s right –-- he almost fired him! He thought about it. He thought about it some more. He talked about it. He wanted to. He may have come tantalizingly close. But he didn’t do it. (And he denies even taking it that far.)

If Peter Strzok and Lisa Page of the FBI had Donald Trump under questioning, you can bet they’d be “loaded for bear.” If they could get away with it, they’d probably grill him under bright lights, using isolation (no lawyer) and maybe sleep deprivation. At least, that’s the impression I get from their texting.
When Peter Strzok and Lisa Page of the FBI exchanged politically-charged texts about an “insurance policy,” presumably to keep (or, if came to that, kick) Donald Trump out of the Oval Office, they referenced a meeting in “Andy’s office.”
California lawmakers have an inexplicable tolerance for letting illegal immigrants with violent criminal records roam the streets, but at least they’re cracking down on the real menace to society: waiters who give you straws you didn’t ask for.
Numerous legal experts have strongly advised that President Trump avoid an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller at all costs. They’re correct in saying that even someone totally innocent concerning matters under investigation can be trapped or confused into stating an unwitting “lie” and then be charged with that.
The entire USA Gymnastics Board will resign on demand of the US Olympic Committee, after their former doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 175 years in prison for molesting young girls.
Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are continuing to do the RNC’s work for them by doubling-down on their scorn for those “pathetic” “crumbs” of raises, bonuses and benefits that workers at many companies are receiving, thanks to the GOP tax cut.
Saturday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the 71st anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945 (it’s marked on different dates in different nations, for instance, Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel is in April).

Thanks to the GOP tax cut, Home Deport just announced that employees will get bonuses of up to $1000 each.
What do you know? The dog that ate the FBI’s homework coughed it up! Just days after the FBI claimed it couldn’t turn over text messages between rabidly anti-Trump paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page due to a “tech glitch” that had eaten all the records, they’ve already been recovered.
When we say, “drain the swamp” at the Justice Department and FBI, it’s not a swipe at the integrity of the entire intelligence community, though many Democrats are trying desperately to portray it as such.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has moved the hands of its “Doomsday Clock” forward 30 seconds, putting it at 2 minutes to midnight, the nearest to nuclear Armageddon that it’s been since its creation in 1947. There can be only one response to such an alarming development: “What a load of hooey!”
Today, President Trump will give a major speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The linked article gives some interesting background on the event (Forum membership alone costs over $52,000; event tickets can add another $19,000; and I bet that doesn’t even include your nachos and Dr. Pepper).
Last weekend was the second annual “Women’s March,” featuring a lot of profane anti-Trump signs and rants about the rights women have lost, but precious few details about what those might be.
