President Donald J. Trump addressed the UN yesterday. Video of his speech can be found at this link. The text of his remarks can be found at this link.
A few choice excerpts, with emphasis added:
… Terrorists and extremists have gathered strength and spread to every region of the planet. Rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity. …
International criminal networks traffic drugs, weapons, people; force dislocation and mass migration; threaten our borders; and new forms of aggression exploit technology to menace our citizens. …
We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, traditions, or even systems of government. But we do expect all nations to uphold these two core sovereign duties: to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation. …
In America, we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to watch. This week gives our country a special reason to take pride in that example. We are celebrating the 230th anniversary of our beloved Constitution — the oldest constitution still in use in the world today.
This timeless document has been the foundation of peace, prosperity, and freedom for the Americans and for countless millions around the globe whose own countries have found inspiration in its respect for human nature, human dignity, and the rule of law.
The greatest in the United States Constitution is its first three beautiful words. They are: “We the people.”
Generations of Americans have sacrificed to maintain the promise of those words, the promise of our country, and of our great history. In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people, where it belongs. …
The United States will forever be a great friend to the world, and especially to its allies. But we can no longer be taken advantage of, or enter into a one-sided deal where the United States gets nothing in return. As long as I hold this office, I will defend America’s interests above all else. …
It is an eternal credit to the American character that even after we and our allies emerged victorious from the bloodiest war in history, we did not seek territorial expansion, or attempt to oppose and impose our way of life on others. Instead, we helped build institutions such as this one to defend the sovereignty, security, and prosperity for all. …
The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based. They respect neither their own citizens nor the sovereign rights of their countries.
If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. When decent people and nations become bystanders to history, the forces of destruction only gather power and strength.
No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea. It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more. …
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. …
The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos. The longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are, in fact, its own people. …
It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction. It is time for the regime to free all Americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained. And above all, Iran’s government must stop supporting terrorists, begin serving its own people, and respect the sovereign rights of its neighbors. …
We will stop radical Islamic terrorism because we cannot allow it to tear up our nation, and indeed to tear up the entire world.
We must deny the terrorists safe haven, transit, funding, and any form of support for their vile and sinister ideology. We must drive them out of our nations. It is time to expose and hold responsible those countries who support and finance terror groups like al Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Taliban and others that slaughter innocent people. …
We seek an approach to refugee resettlement that is designed to help these horribly treated people, and which enables their eventual return to their home countries, to be part of the rebuilding process.
For the cost of resettling one refugee in the United States, we can assist more than 10 in their home region. …
For decades, the United States has dealt with migration challenges here in the Western Hemisphere. We have learned that, over the long term, uncontrolled migration is deeply unfair to both the sending and the receiving countries.
The entire speech is well worth reading. Every citizen will no doubt find something to applaud therein.
President Trump was widely praised for telling it like it is to the United Nations. For example, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said,
In over 30 years in my experience with the UN, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech. President Trump spoke the truth about the great dangers facing our world and issued a powerful call to confront them in order to ensure the future of humanity.
May God bless our President, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.
News ? ……Barack Obama says he would NOT let son play pro football
NFL.com …… Published: Jan. 21, 2014
If he had a son, Barack Obama wouldn’t let him play professional football, the USURPER said recently in a profile published in The New Yorker. he added that he believes today’s players know the risks of the sport they play.
Obama made the comments to David Remnick, the magazine’s editor & a former sports reporter for The Washington Post.
Obama made the comments while watching the Miami Dolphins take on the Carolina Panthers. Remnick asked Obama, according to the article, “if he didn’t feel at all ambivalent about following the sport.”
“I would NOT let my son play pro football,” Obama said. “But, I mean, you wrote a lot about boxing, right? We’re sort of in the same realm.”
But Obama added that players NOW are aware of the RISKS they take.
… (???? LACKING RESPECT??? & MANY BRAIN CELLS??? )
“At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama said. “These guys, they know what they’re doing. They know what they’re buying into. It is no longer a Secret. It’s sort of the feeling I have about Smokers, you know?”
The comments were part of a lengthy profile recently published on the magazine’s website.
What a sexist. Don’t women play football, too? I know several professional female football players. Well, maybe Barry will “allow” his daughters to play football, but not the sons he doesn’t have. I guarantee you, the women’s game is as rough as the men’s and the gals I know aren’t people you want to get on the wrong side of, lest you end up body slammed. 🙂
I don’t want to get “body slammed” by you or your friends!
Ha, ha. Not I! But you wouldn’t have wanted to meet my friends in a dark alley. 🙂 Let’s just say that they were easily twice my weight, with most of it being muscle. They played football back in the 80s, though. By now that muscle’s turned to fat. I do think, though, that there are still women’s football leagues. I believe the one my friends belonged to died away, though. Was glorious while it lasted.
U CREATED..”THIS” SO SAD SO SICK SO FOOLISH your all WET!
KISS …AZZES… SAY what “THEY” … NEED 2 HEAR!!! UNITY???
different groups of? people..watching U ALL get your minds pummeled?
A good take on this issue. What is typical is that the media, predictably, don’t first report the insult that Curry FIRST gave to the president and the honor of being invited to the WH. Who gets an invitation and then must first have a group meeting to decide whether the host is worthy of their presence? You either accept or politely decline. It’s RUDE to do otherwise. If I had a party and this was the response I got (“we have to meet and decide whether your politics preclude our acceptance”), then I’d rescind the invitation, too. Also, the media lie and say Trump disinvited the entire team. He did not. Just Curry, who’s the one who was spouting off.
YEP! do the whole page .. OBAMA a 1/2 blk ?1/2 white? whatever SPY!
Obama spied, in my humble, tinfoil, pretty ‘lil head because he desperately wants to know IF President Trump has his original birth certificate. He wants to know if Arapio has it. He wants to know if he was talking with anyone from Kenya or Britian about his certie. He. Wants. To. Know.
And it makes sense President Trump knows. Think about it. He had more than enough money to buy, bribe, find that darn certificate. Combine this with the fact that President Trump just stopped talking about it when the fake bc was issued. Of course Obama knows Trump knows it is fake and that he knew it fake before even had to see it.
So, if Trump has, why would he sit on it this long? You can bet he has damn good reason! Like maybe if he did he would not get any other swamp creatures. Also, he would not have been able to win the election and usurp the usurpers to get our country back. Coups on coups take time and a lot of deliberate, methodical battles.
The hope of it being revealed as the last sucking sound before the swamp is completely drained give me hope.
(ok.ok. maybe I am sitting in LaLa Land….waiting in my delusion.)
NOPE …not 1 of US HERE @ WTP ^^^^ DON’T KNOW BARRY!
PERFECT-O’… EXCELLENT ~ BRILLIANT & O’ SO MUCH MO’ !!!
That’s a good thought! Never occurred to me. It’s entirely possible. Gosh, I wonder if Trump DOES have something. If he does, I wish he’d spill the beans.

You all probably already know this gal, Red Pill Black, but as usual, I am behind the curve. She is just starting to show up on my fb and her videos are easy ones to drop into some of the comments loaded with liberals. Pretty good stuff.
Her other videos are good – on subjects like feminism/Hillary, BLM, What youtube, google, and twitter really think of black people, more.
Her voice and presentation is so easy on the ears and not outrageous confrontational in your face I am on my soapbox.
Here is the article I learned of her videos http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/09/13/liberals-sick-alt-left-are-taking-red-pill.html
“Our team and the National Football League reflects our nation, with diversity coming in many forms – race, faith, our views and our goals,” Khan said.
“We have a lot of work to do, and we can do it, but the comments by the President make it harder. That’s why it was important for us, and personally for me, to show the world that even if we may differ at times, we can and should be united in the effort to become better as people and a nation.”….HA!!!!
They’ll see unity when the people boycott their sponsors and their games. If they’re all unified, then they can all go to the unemployment office together.
How President Trump’s insults helped……… U N I F Y the NFL

It ……WAS ……the Deep State that Colluded with the Russians,
N O T ……. >>>> TRUMP <<<<
As the Obama/ Lynch/ Comey Effort to Destroy Donald Trump's
presidency UN-ravels,….. Robert Mueller is growing MORE Desperate …
La La La ….. YUGE !!!!! ^^^^^ GO TRUMP … I LOVE U!!!!
~ allangen • …..SO TRUE …so true !!!
Yes, Russia bought some ads on Facebook to advance their cause, & so did countless others. Our mistake, is to think for a moment that the arguments that the left puts forward are what they actually believe. The game that they play is to sow discord & foster confusion. You are playing their game if you present arguments to them refuting their position. They are only looking for
an opening to move on to the next issue, often one of their own creation.
We’ll never defeat them IF WE Continue to think that Debating with them will bring them down. They laugh at that kind of thinking. The only thing that will get their attention is that which cripples & silences them. Until we can fashion such policies, we are only whistling in the wind. …..
That IS true. It’s hard, though, not to at least try to refute them. I believe it’s useful, too, because those who are NOT the true believers but are succumbing to the alt-left’s propaganda NEED TO HEAR the other side of the story.

Actually the MSM is part of operation Mockingbird which is the Deep State
they control the media and have for decades.
~ ……. http://www.theblackvault.co…
Operation Mockingbird was a secret campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media. Begun in the 1950s, it was initially organized by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles, it was later led by Frank Wisner after Dulles became the head of the CIA.
The organization recruited leading American journalists into a network to help present the CIA’s views, and funded some student and cultural organizations, and magazines as fronts. As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities by other operating units of the CIA.
~ Agreed…the entire Russian drama was the mechanism the Left deployed
to deflect the nation’s attention from Hillary’s scandals (email-gate, Benghazi, selling uranium, Seth Rich, etc)
~ ” The game that they play is to sow discord and foster confusion. You are playing their game if you present arguments to them refuting their position. They are only looking for an opening to move on to the next issue, often one
of their own creation.”
That is exactly the SOP of the climate trolls as well….always inventing a new unrelated R A T hole to run you down.
I find it best to NEVER… answer any of their questions continue asking your own questions while putting up quantifiable information, & never let them steer the conversation.
It was JackpineSavageLovesWinning who taught me this method.
yeah … TRACE this M$O$N$E$Y …..NEVER-EVER!!!!! O’ sneaky

“Presenting arguments to them” indeed DOES NOT convince THEM. But that’s NOT the goal: The goal is to keep those arguments in the public space so that others — probably ten times as many read each comment as will ever say anything or even upvote — can read & think about the issue from various sides.
We have grown a national lawn of toxic weeds. The safest way forward is
to grow grass up through those weeds as we mow regularly. I feel the same desire to see the whole works burned, sterilized, & let’s reseed and start clean but there isn’t actually a way to control that fire & once it starts there won’t be a do-over.
PRESENT your arguments here in public. Of course the trolls will jeer but that’s what ‘block user’ is for. And others whose names you will never know are nodding and thinking about what you said.
They’re crippled when Soros ….stops Paying them because he’s no longer getting enough traction & is giving up trying to crash the US economy for fun
& profit. Nothing’s forever, our mutual education proceeds rapidly. Stay the course.
BALLS of STEEL …YES HE CAN …& DID !
O’ ..& a HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEJANDRO ..9-22-1988 ~ STRONG!
After Donald Trump’s controversial comments on Friday that called for NFL owners to cut ANY player who protested during the national anthem, most teams responded on Sunday by having a show of unity while the anthem was played. However, that’s not what the Steelers did…….. Instead, before the team’s game in Chicago,
coach????? Mike Tomlin decided that the Steelers would Remain in their locker room while the national anthem was Sang.
“You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as
a football team it’s about us remaining solid,” Tomlin said before the game.
“We’re not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. .. We’re
not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals
U ALL HIDING YOUR mostly BLK …AZZ’es ..WE STILL SEE U!!
(coach????? Mike Tomlin Decided? that the Steelers would Remain
in their locker room???
while the national anthem was Sang)
…… the game is ON!!!! …..
~ Alejandro Villanueva ~ YEP!!! at 320lbs… “BALLS of STEEL” !!!
the SHIFT ….
IN the WIND !!!
so OK will he crumble ? stay ALIVE? … just a PROUD AMERICAN!
OUR HERO .. STAND WHEN U KNOW in YOUR HEART ❤
THAT IT IS the RIGHT thing 2 DO!!! ~ U ROCK it BIG TIME!!!! ❤️
HOW small R the .. boys “PLAY”-IN’ BALL? zero.. a nothin’ burger
any ❤️ >>…NOPE >>… MORAL DECAY .. is ALL THEY KNOW!
…we R the WORLD we R the CHILDREN? .. make a BETTER
DAY? …. not LIKE THIS …. REBEL show-OFFS !!!! I ❤️ A V !
That really did take guts, didn’t it? But of course he’s a vet, so he has guts. God bless him.
It’s so disgusting that it appears that all the social pressure was put on the one guy who WANTED to respect the flag and the anthem. They say they decided that the team shouldn’t be put in a position to have to choose and so to keep them from being “divided”, they decided they should ALL stay in the locker room. So all the pressure was put on the guy who wanted to DO THE RIGHT THING! To force ALL of them to disrespect the flag, the fans, the anthem, and THE PRESIDENT. Remember that they punished Tebow for kneeling to pray. They punished guys who wore things on their uniforms to honor victims of 9/11. They’ll probably try to punish Villaneuva.
Personal life …. YES he HAS A God!!! & it ain’t the NFL !!!!
Villanueva identifies as a Catholic and was raised believing in Catholicism. In November 2013, he married Madelyn Muldoon in a small ceremony in her parent’s backyard. He met her through her brother, Joe Muldoon, who he played football with at Army and the two began dating in the spring of 2012. On May 9, 2015, Alejandro and Madelyn had a larger ceremony at the Jesus the Divine Word Catholic Church in Huntingtown, Maryland.
In the fall of 2015, Villanueva enrolled in Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper school of business to earn his MBA. As of January 2017, he is STILL…… a part-time student at Carnegie Mellon.

Typical alt-left “logic”:
They POLITICIZE their profession and the games by making public statements and kneeling during the National Anthem. Then, when Trump responds, they criticize HIM for “politicizing” football!
They INSULT and DISRESPECT everyone who reveres our flag and our national anthem, especially the troops and our brave veterans, but when the president defends our country, flag, and anthem, they get insulted and claim Trump is “disrespecting” THEM!
San Fran Nana goes on TV and complains, whining that sports and “the arts” are something that bring the country together, but TRUMP somehow is the one dividing the country, even though the players are the very ones who DIVIDED the country by participating in divisive stunts in the first place, beginning before Trump was even elected.
Finally, they scream that they’re only exercising THEIR right to free speech, but somehow they don’t believe that the president has the same right to free speech! There’s not enough duct tape in the universe to keep my head from exploding.
You got a product here Miri!
Trump brand tape, Strong enough to repair any accident,
strong enough to keep the most agitated snowflake from exploding.
You could sell it online,
or on those infomercials.
The initial public offering will outsell apple.
think they used to make some kind of mobile phone thing.
Would be nice, but I’d have to hire some super-intelligent chemist (?) to come up with a formula strong enough. I wonder who invented duct tape, anyway? Have you EVER seen it used on ducts, by the way? Everything but!

good article on Soros and the nfl,
Solution: Only the patriot movement can stop this burgeoning Purple Revolution. How so? Stop attending all professional sports events and turn off TV sports coverage. Don’t go to the movie theaters or the stadiums or the concerts. Only amateur sports arenas like college games are okay, perhaps. Avoid all the pop musicians that fill the airwaves with their utter cacophony. Stay away from all the big retailers like Walmart and Amazon. Patronize those corporations that have signaled their patriotism and/or nationalism. Same with restaurant chains and other food/beverage franchises. For example, Panera is obviously superior to Starbucks, at least for today. Let’s face it, “This Is A Great Time To BOYCOTT Hollyweird“. And that’s how it’s done: hit them in the pocket book and they will cave in a New York minute.
I am doing my bit,
won’t tune into any of that crap.
Dream on!! 🙄
It’s all BS. They claim that the “Dreamers” will get 10 years to work towards a green card, which then requires another 5 years until citizenship. And then NO chain immigration where they use their status to legalize Mom, Dad (if any), and siblings. RIGHT! And no sooner is it set up than the next Congress, especially if DemoncRATS get control, waives those requirements and just gives them the citizenship. They’ll instantly begin screaming about how it’s “not fair” that others don’t have to work so hard to get citizenship and, again, “it’s not their fault” and it’s “not fair to punish them for what their parents did.” It’s the camel’s nose under the tent. They should NEVER get citizenship. Surely, too, as soon as it happens, the “Dreamers” will file suit for their full citizenship and some liberal judge will declare it unconstitutional. Just wait and see. I’m leaning towards that they ought to go back and apply and get in line behind everybody else. Even THIS plan lets them jump the queue. Isn’t that what Trump said, anyway? That they’d have to go to the back of the line?
