President Trump’s speech before the UN was interesting in many ways.
He put the multinational globalists on official notice that he has their number and as far as he’s concerned their number is up. He let the UN bureaucrats know that their red tape parades have got to be reined in. He called socialism what it is, a failure. He held up capitalism as the means for raising people out of poverty and ignorance. He made the case for sovereignty both national, personal, and individual freedom. He pointed out that the US carries a disproportionate load for the support of the UN and that this has got to change or they might be looking for spare change if America cuts its funding for what has become an anti-American debating society. In other words, he let the world know that as far as his administration is concerned from now on it’s going to be America First.
He laid out some markers in foreign affairs for North Korea, Syria, Iran and Venezuela. He avoided platitudes and spoke bluntly of his thoughts about some of the disastrous deals made by previous administrations that empowered and inspired our enemies just as they discouraged our allies. He let everyone know he felt free to abort or amend these deals with American interests in mind this time.
The first speech at the UN is a right-of-passage for all new presidents. President Trump speaking to a room full of collectivist socialists pointed out such realities as the problem in Venezuela isn’t that socialism hasn’t been properly implemented the problem is that it’s been implemented at all. He was forthright and presented a good argument that freedom and capitalism is a superior system to coercion and socialism. For all this we should celebrate and give thanks that President Trump won in November 2016.
In the last election we had the choice between the last nail in our coffin and a chance. We now have a chance. America’s place on the world stage is being clarified by President Trump. But we need to keep things in perspective.
We need to keep our eye on the prize. What good will it do to gain the world if we lose the homeland? It was mainly domestic issues that drove everyone to the polls to prevent Hillary’s coronation. We want America back not the globalist collective the Progressives have been shoving down our throat.
Stop the migration invasion. Secure the border. No amnesty. Bring our troops home from around the world and let them make us secure. Build the wall, build the wall, build the wall.
Those who say we cannot build a wall need to take a look at the border between North and South Korea. It may not be a smaller version of the Great Wall but it’s effective. Or look at the wall Israel built on their border with the Palestinian Authority. If these secure borders can be built, guarded, and maintained why can’t we do the same thing on our Southern border?
Bring our troops home from Korea. Why should they be there as a trip wire? Their deaths are meant to do nothing else but guarantee that we’ll be involved in the next war. Let South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan deal with the suicidal Rocket Man. Their populations and economies are much larger than the gulag which is North Korea.
Bring our troops home from Germany. Lately the Germans and French seem friendlier to Russia than they do to us so who are we protecting them from? Themselves?
Why should we spend billions each year to maintain these garrison troops left over from wars fought more than a half century ago. Instead of spending that money overseas post the troops to our southern border and spend that money in our own country.
DACA is a Trojan horse. Give amnesty to anyone and you’ll end up giving it to everyone. The minute it becomes law the ACLU, CAIR, LA Raza and all the other America Last front groups will file challenges to the law’s supposedly iron-clad limitations. These inevitable law suits will give liberal activist judges the opportunity to prop the door open. They’ll argue, “Why is it fair that some get citizenship and others don’t?” If the Trump Administration dares to stand against these attempts to stretch a limited amnesty into a come-one-come-all free-for-all the Ninth Circuit will get the opportunity to slap them down and knock the door off its hinges.
President Trump, for standing up to the globalists in their lair you are to be commended. Out here in fly-over country most are proud to hear you speak for us bravely and forthrightly to these representatives of demagogues and dictators.
But please, keep your eye on the prize. If you reform the Obamacare health insurance debacle, reform taxes, and cut regulations you’ll go down as one of the greatest presidents in our history. However, when a patient is hemorrhaging the first thing to do is stop the bleeding. So first of all as our Commander-in-Chief, the one charged with protecting the nation, build the wall build the wall, build the wall.
