WATCH/READ: President Trump’s Pitch-Perfect Speech on Iran

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If America had anything resembling an honest, real media establishment, President Donald Trump’s speech on Iran today would be roundly hailed as one of the greatest, most pitch-perfect presidential addresses in modern times. – But of course, what we actually have in America is an utterly corrupt media establishment that is all-consumed with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Thus, all the hacks will do is parrot the approved talking points provided to them by the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation.

So, as courtesy to the thousands of loyal readers who have given the Campaign Update its three greatest months ever since October, here follows a video of the full speech, followed by a complete and unfiltered transcript of the President’s remarks. First, the video [Note: The Speech begins at the 56 minute mark of this video.]:

Full Transcript of the President’s Remarks [emphasis added]:

As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.

Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you: The American people should be extremely grateful and happy that no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases. Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.

No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.

For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.

Last week, we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives. At my direction, the United States military eliminated the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As the head of the Quds Force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities.

He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah, launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of U.S. troops, including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims.

Soleimani directed the recent attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq that badly wounded four service members and killed one American, and he orchestrated the violent assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.

Soleimani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago. By removing Soleimani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people.

As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.

In recent months alone, Iran has seized ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia, and shot down two U.S. drones.

Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.” In fact, they chanted “death to America” the day the agreement was signed.

Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reins on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran.

The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway, and gives Iran a clear and quick path to nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.

They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal -– or JCPOA –- and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper, and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential. Iran can be a great country.

Peace and stability cannot prevail in the Middle East as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred, and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.

Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process. Over the last three years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and America has achieved energy independence. These historic accompliments [accomplishments] changed our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible. And options in the Middle East became available. We are now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We are independent, and we do not need Middle East oil.

The American military has been completely rebuilt under my administration, at a cost of $2.5 trillion. U.S. Armed Forces are stronger than ever before. Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal, and fast. Under construction are many hypersonic missiles.

The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.

Three months ago, after destroying 100 percent of ISIS and its territorial caliphate, we killed the savage leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi, who was responsible for so much death, including the mass beheadings of Christians, Muslims, and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Baghdadi was trying again to rebuild the ISIS caliphate, and failed.

Tens of thousands of ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration. ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.

Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.

I want to thank you, and God bless America. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.

[End]

 

That is all.

    North Korea was concerned – (rightly so) – about being betrayed by the US Deep State; Ghaddafi was his best lesson, as he had become very useful, and when cornered, begged to be allowed to leave his country. Ghaddafi’s sons met with our military, and were hopeful he could be allowed to leave. But no, not when Jezebel was running the show! Her cackle: “we came, we saw, he died!” was shocking and evidence of insanity. And by the way, Lockerbie wasn’t a Libyan op: it was Iran and Palestinians.

    No wonder Kim refused most overtures, even from the dolt who obtained a Nobel, then conducted an illegal war. Same could be said, in retrospect, of Dubya Bushie. And Willy Jeff the Arkancidian. And H.W. Bushie. Like it was said about Herod the Great:

    “It is better to be Herod’s pig than his son.” Same could be said about being an ally of the US, if your name is or was Noriega, Hussein, Ghaddafi or Assad! (John Kerry was singing Assad praises, as were HRC and others, until they decided to flip him like a cheap house.) And now President Trump has shown an uncharacteristic sense of proportion – uncharacteristic of most leaders around the world. Perhaps others could learn something from him.

    President Trump, unlike his critics at home and abroad, has one defining characteristic: honor. He’s true to his word. Trustworthy.

    The best part was that he directly implicated Obama and the billions he gave to Iran.

    And let’s fact it, that is what agitated the media the most, as they scramble to protect the legacy of their Precious.

    The difference between Barack the Obama and Trump giving a speech is the same as Night and Day 🙂

    The billions he “gave” Iran were intended, in part, to purchase the support of the Euros and the Americanas, corruptocrats.

        It’s on a number of sites now. Make of it what you will, but his description sounds fairly dubious to me.

          Why would Q’anon waste his/their time on a discredited, foolish, lying sack of rubbish, who has proven to be wrong over and over and over again? No one hacked your computer, you douchebag.
