Trump Gives Speech the Media Demanded – CNN, MSNBC Hardest Hit

The Evening Campaign Update

Well, everyone at CNN and MSNBC are now regretting they spent the last 48 hours demanding President Trump make a speech.

Boy, what a speech it was.

Here’s the Transcript:

Thank you very much. My fellow Americans, my first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.

All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain, but we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drown out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace loving citizens in our poorest communities and as their president, I will fight to keep them safe.

I will fight to protect you. I am your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters. But in recent days, our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa and others.

A number of state and local governments have failed to take necessary action to safeguard their residents. Innocent people have been savagely beaten like the young man in Dallas, Texas, who was left dying on the street or the woman in upstate New York, viciously attacked by dangerous thugs. Small business owners have seen the dreams utterly destroyed.

New York’s finest have been hit in the face with bricks, brave nurses who have battled the virus are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct has been overrun here in the nation’s Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial have been vandalized.

One of our most historic churches was set a blaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero was shot and killed. These are not acts of peaceful protest, these are acts of domestic terror. The destruction of innocent life and the spilling of innocent blood is an offense to humanity and a crime against God.

America needs creation not destruction, cooperation not contempt, security not anarchy, healing not hatred, justice not chaos. This is our duty and we will succeed – 100% we will succeed. Our country always wins.

That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am mobilizing all available, federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law abiding Americans, including your second amendment rights.

Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately.

First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now. Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the national guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets, mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.

If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them. I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great Capitol Washington DC. What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace.

As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement offices to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism assaults and the wanton destruction of property. We are putting everybody on warning our seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threatened innocent life and property will be arrested, detained and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.

One law and order and that is what it is. One law, we have one beautiful law and once that is restored and fully restored, we will help you, we will help your business and we will help your family. America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the of our prosperity, our freedom and our very way of life, but where there is no law, there is no opportunity, where there is no justice there is no Liberty, where there is no safety there is no future.

We must never give in to anger or hatred if malice or violence rains, then none of us is free. I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country by far our greatest days lie ahead.

Thank you very much and now I’m going to pay my respects to a very, very special place. Thank you very much.

[End]

 

And then he did this:

Earlier in the day, the President held a conference call with the nation’s governors and told them to do their damn jobs or he would do it for them. Every Democrat on the call was horrified at the prospect of actually having to do their jobs. No Republicans expressed any concerns.

And that’s all you really need to know about that.

That is all.

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.

Trump’s Warsaw Speech Shows Why The Radical Left’s Rage Won’t Get Better

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Quite often over the last eight months, I’ve been asked this question by friends and contacts disturbed by the increasingly radical and violent reaction by those on the American political left to the election and presidency of Donald Trump:  “When does this get better?  When does it calm down?”

My answer has been consistent:  “It doesn’t as long as Donald Trump is President.”

One great way to understand why it doesn’t, why the left – led by the ongoing tacit approval of every leader of the national Democrat Party – will only continue to become more radical and violent during the four or eight years of the Trump presidency, one need only read this passage from the President’s speech in Warsaw last week:

Finally, on both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: the steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people. The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.

Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are.  If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.

But just as our adversaries and enemies of the past learned here in Poland, we know that these forces, too, are doomed to fail if we want them to fail. And we do, indeed, want them to fail. They are doomed not only because our alliance is strong, our countries are resilient, and our power is unmatched. Through all of that, you have to say everything is true. Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. Americans will never forget.  The nations of Europe will never forget.

This passage encapsulates the core beliefs of the Trump Presidency:  that America is a great nation, that the culture that made it great will ultimately prevail, that borders and nationalities are important, that free people pursuing their dreams are what make America and other Western democracies great, that faceless bureaucrats piling burden atop burden on the people are an inhibitor to greatness, that forces who work to erase our values and change our culture are the greatest threat to our survival.  These are the core beliefs of a man and his supporters who truly love America, beliefs that are complete anathema to everyone who has succumbed to leftist doctrine.

The people who populate today’s radical left are by and large people under the age of 40 who bought into the neo-marxist, Alinskyite view of American history that has been taught on most college campuses since the early 1980s, and by craven Democrat politicians – like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts – who seek to benefit politically by supporting their efforts.  In this view, America is the world’s Original Sin, the cause of all problems in the third world, an inherently racist, homophobic, Islamaphobic and every other kind of -phobic they can come up with society, and because of this, Americans do not deserve the prosperity and freedoms we have enjoyed.  Thus, that prosperity must be redistributed to the rest of the world via international scams like the Paris Climate Accords and major multi-lateral trade agreements, and those freedoms systematically diminished by the constant overlay of new, increasingly intrusive regulations from the federal government.

If you’re thinking, hey, that’s what we got from the Obama Administration, well, you’re catching on here.

It’s also what we would have gotten more and more and more from a Hillary Clinton presidency.  This, at its core, is why you have seen this never-ending outrage, this increasingly violent response from the American left, and it is why you will never see any Democrat national leader condemn the increasingly outrageous and violent acts against our society perpetrated by groups like Antifa.  We have to understand that such groups are largely created, organized and funded by George Soros and others who also fund the Democrat Party.   They are all interrelated, all funded and directed by the same people.

Prior to November 8, 2016, these people believed they had everything set up for the ultimate destruction of American culture and the socialization of American democracy.  Barack Obama had kept his 2008 promise to work to “fundamentally transform this nation,” and believed he had everything set in place for his designated successor, Hillary Clinton, to finish the job.  The bureaucracies were firmly in place and constantly growing; the justice department, state department, EPA and intelligence agencies had all been completely corrupted; the federal judiciary had been filled with radical judges who view the Constitution as a minor inconvenience, and the national news media was populated almost entirely by true believers who work hard every day to brainwash the public.  Even better, the borders were wide open, with potential future Democrat voter blocs pouring into the country every day.

It was all there.  Those on the radical left had come so close to their goal that they could taste it.  All that remained was to count the votes, anoint the new leftist strong woman, and complete the job.  Four years of Hillary might get it done; eight years certainly would.

But the vote did not go their way, and the winner was a man who symbolizes everything they hate:  success, wealth, love of country, support for the culture and way of life that made America a great nation to begin with.  It wasn’t just that a Republican had won, it was that the wrong kind of Republican had won:  a Republican who had no fear of them or their propaganda agents in the national news media; a Republican who promised to aggressively go about reversing every policy implemented during the last eight years, and has already made great progress in doing so; a Republican who promised to work to take America out of the international redistributionist scams entered into by Obama, and has already done so; a Republican who promised to replace the feckless Obama policy of “leading from behind” with the renewal of real American leadership in international relations, and has already done so.  They could have lived with another Republican president who feared the fake news media and whose policies were just slower versions of Democrat priorities; they can’t live with Donald Trump, just as they never really could live with Ronald Reagan.

Thus, this is not going to get better as long as Donald Trump remains the President of the United States.  The outrage won’t end – it will only grow stronger.  The invention of phony scandals will not end – they will just constantly shift and grow increasingly absurd.  The constant assassination dog-whistling in the fake news media will only grow more overt and intense.  The radical American left is no different than ISIS:  it cannot be appeased, it cannot be contained, it cannot be negotiated with.  It fundamentally cannot be reasoned with via truth and facts because it fundamentally rejects reason, truth and facts.  It must be defeated, again and again and again, by Americans of good will who want our nation to remain free.  Ultimately, it must be destroyed.

Make no mistake about it:  If the radical left in this country is not ultimately destroyed, it will ultimately destroy America as we know it.  This is the reality in which we live.  These are very, very perilous times.

That is all.
