President Donald Trump has given his long-awaited address to the United Nations. In his speech, he covered several topics, but his main point was that the UN will only be effective if strong, sovereign nations worked together for results.
- “To put it simply, we meet at a time of both immense promise and great peril.”
- “In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign.”
- “You should all put your countries first.”
Trump scolded the Russians with an indirect reference to Ukrainian sovereignty. He spent considerable time threatening the “depraved regime” of North Korea.
- “It is an outrage” that some nations continue to trade with North Korea.
- Threat to North Korea: “denuclearization is their only option.”
- America is prepared to completely destroy North Korea
Then on to Iran:
- “We will stop radical Islamic terrorism because we cannot allow it to tear up our nation and indeed to tear up the entire world.”
Refugee resettlement should be done with a goal of returning the refugees to their sending nations.
- “Out of the goodness of our hearts” we give financial support to countries with refugee issues.
- “We will not lift sanctions” until Cuba makes human rights reforms
- A “cruel regime.”
- “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”
- Trump called socialism and communism “cruel systems.”
“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” Trump said during the speech in New York.
Trump first referred to Kim as “rocket man” on Sunday when mentioning a call he had with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
“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.”
“Strong, sovereign nations let diverse countries with different values, different cultures, and different dreams not just co-exist but work side-by-side on the basis of mutual respect,” the president said. He added that sovereign states “let their people take ownership of the future and control their own destiny.”
The president touted the U.S. as an example of a strong, sovereign nation that has declined “to impose our way of life on anyone.”
With President Trump we are not going to get the soaring rhetoric of Barack Obama or the happy smile and sentiment of George W. Bush. We are not going to get Reagan or Clinton. What we are going to get is a blunt instrument who understands he can occasionally use his bluntness to make real change. Today at the United Nations, President Trump bluntly told the UN that the US is going back to a foreign policy of a bygone era — one where we act with allies or alone for our real, not our idealized, national interest.
Obama said the same thing. https://t.co/obyYjroaXP

Can't help but feel it may be unwise for POTUS to bait leader of a notoriously touchy, psychopathic regime w/campaign-style insults at U.N.

Trump: "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented."

This was the best version of President Trump. He communicated his ideals clearly. He spoke truth about communism, socialism, despotism and the threats to our civilization. Certainly, the left and much of Trump’s media opposition will have a fun time dissecting the speech and going after bits and pieces. But I think the message was given, and was received.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
