El Estado de la Unión un desplegado de la agenda Trump

“Los muros salvan vidas” dijo Donald Trump en su discurso.

El presidente de Estados Unidos Donald Trump se dirigió a la nación este martes por la noche para rendir cuentas en el Estado de la Unión en medio de un congreso dividido.

Mientras que las mujeres en esta ocasión marcaron la diferencia, lideradas por Nancy Pelosi representantes demócratas femeninas del congreso llegaron vestidas de blanco; que durante el tema migratorio de Trump se notó claramente el rechazo demócrata al muro en la frontera y otros temas del discurso del presidente.

Donald Trump se dirigió primeramente presentando a la primera Dama de los Estados Unidos Melania Trump, además de los legisladores y sus invitados, así como a varios jueces de la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos. El sentido del discurso dirigido por Trump dijo él, esta basado en la agenda del pueblo americano excluyendo la agenda republicana o demócrata.

Trump inicio su discurso con la bandera de los temas de trabajos para los americanos, comercio justo, revitalizar la infraestructura, reducir el costo del cuidado medico, prescripción de medicinas mas baratas y crear un sistema de inmigración que es seguro, conforme a la ley y moderno; persiguiendo una póliza de relaciones exteriores que vaya por el interés de América primero. Sin dejar de mencionar que durante el último año, se ha logrado un progreso increíble y un éxito extraordinario

Trump especificó que quería que los inmigrantes vinieran en números abundantes; pero que vengan legalmente. Sin dejar de mencionar todo lo negativo del tema migratorio: que la frontera sur era muy peligrosa, que los americanos están pagando el resultado de la inmigración en masa y no disfrutan de sueldos bien remunerados, que los hospitales están llenos y es difícil para los americanos tener acceso; además de escuelas donde los estudiantes ya no caben en las aulas y el crimen más alto.

Números arrojados por el presidente Trump sobre los inmigrantes ilegales:

266,000 arrestos “aliens” criminales

101,000 asaltos

30,000 crímenes sexuales

4,000 muertes

El Estado de la Unión concluyó al rededor de las 7:30 la noche hora de Los Angeles.

Suma México segundo tropiezo en Serie del Caribe, ante Cuba

Feb 5, 2019

Suma México segundo tropiezo en Serie del Caribe, ante Cuba

Una reacción tardía le impidió al conjunto de México, representado por los Charros de Jalisco, obtener su primera victoria en la Serie del Caribe 2019 y terminó cayendo 3-1 ante la selección de Cuba, en actividad del Grupo A esta tarde en el Estadio Nacional Rod Carew, de Panamá.

En las últimas dos entradas, cuatro hombres se quedaron en las bases en espera de ser remolcados, pero el batazo a la hora buena sólo alcanzó para producir una carrera, insuficiente para concretar la remolcada ante unos cubanos que tuvieron en el abridor Lázaro Blanco a su mejor hombre.

Blanco colgó ceros en los siete innings que se mantuvo sobre la loma, permitiendo únicamente 3 hits y otorgando una base por bolas, a cambio de 3 ponches recetados (0.00); por su parte, Will Oliver, quien abrió por los Charros, lanzó 4.2 entradas, toleró 6 hits y 3 carreras, regaló una base y ponchó a 4 (5.79).

Alfredo Despaigne produjo las tres anotaciones de los isleños con dos imparables al jardín izquierdo, el primer par de éstas en el tercer episodio, impulsando a Jorge Jhonson y Danel Castro a la registradora, y la restante, en la apertura del quinto rollo, empujando a Yuniesky Larduet al plato.

La única carrera tricolor llegó en el cierre la novena con un sencillo de Jesús Valdez que le permitió a Amadeo Zazueta alcanzar tierra prometida, colocar 3-1 el score y mantener la esperanza de la afición mexicana, misma que se diluyó al ver cómo un elevado al derecho de Agustín Murillo sentenciaba el juego.

De esta manera, México –quien recibirá descanso este miércoles– se coloca 0-2 en la Serie y está obligado a obtener victorias en sus dos encuentros restantes de la segunda vuelta, ante Venezuela y Cuba, este jueves y viernes respectivamente, para mantener sus aspiraciones de disputar la Final el próximo domingo.

Las Vegas – UFC® returns to Nashville, Tenn. for the first time in almost two years with a battle between two of the most elite strikers in UFC history as two-time welterweight title challenger and current No.4-ranked contender Stephen Thompson looks to spoil the 170-pound debut of former UFC lightweight champion Anthony PettisAlso, No.4-ranked heavyweight contender Curtis Blaydes intends to bounce back into the win column by handing Justin Willis his first loss in the UFC. UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON ESPN+®: THOMPSON vs. PETTIS will stream live from Bridgestone Arena exclusively on ESPN+ at 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 23, with the ESPN+ prelims kicking off the evening at 4 p.m. CT/5 p.m. ET.

A five-time world champion in kickboxing with an incredible record of 58-0 with over 40 KOs, Thompson (14-3-1, fighting out of Simpsonville, S.C.) is one of the most highly-decorated strikers to ever compete in the UFC. Since joining the UFC in 2012, Thompson compiled a record of 9-3-1, including first-round KOs over former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks and current middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. Now set to compete for this first time in almost a year, Thompson aims to re-enter the championship conversation by securing the sixth post-fight bonus of his career with another highlight-reel KO.

Former lightweight champion and featherweight title challenger Pettis (21-8, fighting out of Milwaukee, Wis.) competes in his third weight class under the UFC banner as he moves up to welterweight in the Octagon for the first time. A third-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Pettis has landed some of the most spectacular KOs in UFC history, including back-to-back first-round KOs over Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone.

Willis (8-1, fighting out of San Jose, Calif.) intends to stay undefeated in the UFC as he prepares to take on the highest-ranked opponent of his career. After losing his first professional fight, Willis has won eight bouts in a row, with four of those victories coming by way of KO. Coming off the biggest win of his career against Hunt, Willis now looks to continue his momentum and work towards his first UFC title shot.

  • No.1-ranked flyweight contender Jussier Formiga (22-5, fighting out of Natal, Brazil) looks to secure his first UFC title shot by being the only man to defeat No.4-ranked Deiveson Figueiredo (15-0, fighting out of Soure, Brazil)

Premier Boxing Champions

OAKLAND, Calif. (February 4, 2019) – Undefeated super lightweight contender Mario Barrios will look to continue his push toward a world title shot when he faces Mexico’s Richard Zamora (19-2, 12 KOs) live on SHOWTIME this Saturday, February 9 from Dignity Health Sports Park, formerly StubHub Center, in Carson, California and presented by Premier Boxing Champions.
The three-fight SHOWTIME telecast begins live at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT and is headlined by super featherweight world champion Gervonta Davis defending his title against former world champion Hugo Ruiz.
The 23-year-old from San Antonio can increase his knockout streak to seven on February 9, all since he moved up to 140-pounds. Here is what Barrios (22-0, 14 KOs) had to say about his upcoming matchup and more from training camp in Oakland, Calif.:
On his matchup with Richard Zamora:
“Zamora is my toughest opponent to date in my opinion. He’s won his last five fights, so I know he’s coming into this fight with a lot of confidence. He has power in both hands and he’s very tough. But I’m going into this fight with a lot of confidence myself. This is going to be a war and one I’m looking forward to. I have no doubt in my mind that I’m going to come out on top.”
On his recent training camp:
“Camp started back home with my dad Martin and he really got me ready before I left for California. I’ve spent the last six weeks training in the Bay Area with Virgil Hunter. I’ve also been training with Victor Conte and Remi Korchemny at the SNAC facility. Right now, my body is in the best shape of my life. I got good sparring with Devin Haney and a few other top-level fighters. All the hard work is almost done. We have one week left and then its fight week. Virgil and I are working great together and I’m ready to go.”
On fighting in the co-main event on SHOWTIME:
“I’m very excited to be fighting on SHOWTIME on a big card once again, this time in the co-main event. I’m going to bring a lot of excitement to those watching on TV. My style is fan friendly and everyone tuning in is going to see the next superstar in boxing. I’m going to take full advantage of this opportunity fighting on the big stage.”
On when he’ll be fighting for a world title:
“I’m currently ranked #1 in the WBA, so I know a world title shot is very close. Right now, my main focus is defeating Zamora. I must get past this fight and then it’s time to face all the top guys in the super lightweight division. I’m looking to be in a world title fight sometime this year.”
