President Trump Owns the UN

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.

  4. ~ Robert Laity ^^^^^..JUST THE FACTS MAME’ …the FACTS!!!! GET IT?
    Fact remains that because of his purported father’s nationality, Barack Obama, Jr. was considered a Natural Born Subject/Citizen of the UK under the British Nationality Act of 1948.
    It is not conjecture that to be President or VP, one MUST be born in the USA
    & one’s parents must both be US Citizens. It is established Supreme Court precedent.

    ~ Gary Wilmott
    What was more disturbing to me is that Tucker Carlson (who I enjoy watching for the most part) agreed with Hopkins and then repeating what his guest had just said… (…that he [Obama] was the founder of Isis & a Kenyan) stated unequivocally to his audience:
    “Both untrue.” ……. NO TRUTH = UN TRUE !!!! just A “DREAM”!!!!!

    Fact is that Tucker doesn’t know Obama’s true citizenship because Obama has never provided PROOF of his true Citizenship. But Carlson has to Spout this irresponsible LINE to keep his job & deflect the “birther” narrative. Just keep your mouth zipped Tucker if you can’t be honest about what is the greatest F R A U D Ever perpetrated on the American people. Carlson’s irresponsible comments make him part of the problem. !!!!! YEP part of !!!

    • I agree with that guy. There’s NEVER been any proof given to anyone (because he has none) that Obama was born in anyplace that’s the USA when he was born. Better to keep one’s mouth shut than to disagree with someone when you have NO PROOF whatsoever of your position. Tucker cannot know because nobody knows (who’s talking).

    • His campaign’s claim that he was born a dual citizen of the UK and the USA does NOT preclude him being born in the TERRITORY of Hawaii, not the STATE of Hawaii. It doesn’t say what sort of “citizen” of the U.S. that he was. Puerto Ricans are citizens, but they can’t vote in federal elections. They’re “statutory citizens,” not natural born citizens. It defies logic to believe that someone who has no vote FOR the presidency can run for the presidency. So it matters if Barry was born in the TERRITORY of Hawaii and thus has only statutory citizenship, putting aside the fact he was and may still be a British subject.

    • Allow me to point out that the TROLLS (the USUAL ones, despite having new names) are showing up on that post in comments. That FACT proves that they’re afraid. These are the paid and organized trolls who have been on duty to jump on any so-called “birther” story that looks like it’s getting legs from the beginning even to now. They wouldn’t do this so avidly unless there was something there to hide at all costs.

      • ~ Lin …@yahoo …old MO’ summed up the Hypocrisy of the GOP???
        $200,000 a speaking gig for Michelle Obama will make it pretty hard for Michelle to complain in graduation speeches, as she usually does, how badly America has treated her. Remember how she is asked to reach for the high shelf in grocery stores occasionally? And how someone mistook her for a server in a restaurant once? Michelle insulted all retail workers & servers indicating this work was BENEATH her. And she complained that poor Barack was mistaken for a valet once. My father put himself through Northwestern College working as a valet & gas station attendant. But Michelle & Barack were given everything & still weren’t grateful. They see everything through the lens of race & talk about how badly America treated them. Yet, most Americans, white or black or hispanic would LOVE the opportunities America provided to these two ungrateful elitists: * scholarships to Princeton & Columbia undergrad * scholarships to Harvard Law * Prez of Law Review for Barack not based upon his grades or merit says NYT * $300,000 a year job for Michelle at U Chicago * Senate job for Barack where he Voted Present all of the time ??? * $1.7 million Georgian home in Chicago * private school for daughters * White House gig for both * $200,000+ for life pension for serving 8 years as Prez * $60 million book deal * $200,000 & $400,000 speaking deals. Yep, it’s going to be pretty hard to give talks about how bad America is & how mistreated the Obamas have been. What will they have to complain about now in speeches to young grads? …. ha’

      • Will we ever learn the truth?

    You do realize that since 65% of the NFL is BLACK, & since the boycott you propose will likely ultimately decrease the 7-figure salaries that those BLACK players are pulling Down, then ipso facto your proposed boycott is rayciss, & presumptive evidence that you is [sic] a rayciss too. I haven’t watched the NFL on TV (except for the Super Bowl which I do watch) for twenty+ years, so I guess I am a rayciss, too.
    [/sarc] for the less than fully sentient]

    Funny, but I’ve got a notion that if I put a bumper sticker on MY… car extolling the virtues of the KKK or displaying a hakenkreuz & drove it to work, & got fired (as I surely would have), the people who are whining about push-back & restriction of “rights” in football players’ expressions of politics at work would be just a tad less indignant in their defense of my right to proclaim my politics at work. [Actually, I suspect some of these ultraliberals & SJW’s would actually support killing me for the effrontery of displaying such an incorrect political sentiment, because – hate speech.]

    ~ petitemouse Carey Allison • ^^^^^^
    Carey Allison it doesn’t even take that much
    opposition, just a few months ago the
    man working for a tech company was fired
    for daring to say that there is a difference in
    men & women that explains why fewer
    women are in the engineering field. Fired
    for a gentle & an opinion that touched on
    the TRUTH. Men & women are different.

  15. ~ ~ ~ Engineering the……OUR !!!! Weather …. Sept. 22, 2017
    Researcher and activist Dane Wigington has been documenting Disturbing changes in the environment caused by geoengineering. This involves various weather modification techniques including chemtrails & HAARP. He joined guest host Jimmy Church (email) to discuss why he believes extreme weather is the result of geoengineering. According to Wigington, there are mountains of evidence in the form of congressional documents & patents going back at least 70 years, which definitively prove the reality of climate engineering programs. He cited the 1947 Project Cirrus—the first attempt to modify a hurricane—as an example,
    & suggested the government has had the ability to steer hurricanes ever since.

    “We have animations capturing the ground-based radio frequency transmitters actually interacting with the cyclones and absolutely having a very profound effect on them,” Wigington continued. Satellite imagery shows the atmospheric aerosolization used to control cyclones, he added. “These cyclones are absolutely being manipulated, there is no question,” he reiterated, noting patented cyclone suppressing processes have protected the U.S. coast from hurricane strike for the last decade or so. All of this weather modification comes at a terrible price in environmental damage & biological harm to humans.

    The elements, such as aluminum, used in geoengineering are highly toxic & present a health hazard when breathed into the body, Wigington explained. And the climate conspiracy extends even to local weather forecasts. Wigington questioned how meteorologists could predict mostly sunny days far in advance if weather modification is not
    at play. He alluded to Raytheon, calling them the biggest covert geoengineering contractors in the world, & noting how they provide weather models for the National Weather Service (NWS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These agencies are simply reading a script produced by a company that can control the weather, he revealed.

    Wigington expects the frequency of extreme weather events to escalate and to get much worse. For him, intentional climate intervention programs are the single largest factor for recent extreme weather events.
    “Climate engineering must be considered the single, greatest, & most immediate Threat WE ….Face…because it’s interfering with Earth’s life support systems from top to bottom,” …..Wigington warned.

      • JERRY LEWIS’s …..Political Views …. OK!!! better than a DAD!
        Lewis kept a low political profile for many years, having taken advice reportedly given to him by President John F. Kennedy, who told him “Don’t get into anything political. Don’t do that because they will usurp your energy”.[46]

        Lewis once stated that politics “did not belong” at the Oscars.[47] In a 2004 interview, Lewis was asked what he was least proud of, to which he answered politics – not his, but the world’s. He lamented citizens’ lack of pride in their country, stating, “President Bush is my president. I will not say anything negative about the president of the United States. I don’t do that. And I don’t allow my children to do that. Likewise when I come to England don’t you do any jokes about ‘Mum’ to me. That is the Queen of England, you moron.”[48]

        In a December 2015 interview on EWTN’s World Over with Raymond Arroyo, Lewis expressed opposition to the United States letting in Syrian refugees, saying “No one has worked harder for the human condition than I have,
        but they’re not part of the human condition if 11 guys in that group of 10,000 are ISIS. How can I take that chance?”[49]

        In the same interview, he criticized President Barack Obama for not being prepared for ISIS,
        while expressing support for Donald Trump, saying he would make a GOOD President because he was a good “showman”.
        He also added that he admired Ronald Reagan’s presidency.[50][51][52]

      • I know. That was sad. Remember Gary Lewis and the Playboys? Not only did Jerry disinherit those sons, but there’s that daughter that he NEVER acknowledged at all. It’s really sad. In some things, he was spot on; but in others you just have to shake your head. Proves the point that everybody is a mixture of good and bad (except saints, I suppose). And maybe evil sociopaths. Hard to find any “good” in them. I won’t name names. 🙂
