  • Germany's Sigmar Gabriel slams Donald Trump's 'national selfishness' in UN speech

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 09.21.2017 | rs/sms (AFP, dpa)
    German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel warned against “national selfishness” in world politics on Thursday in his first speech at the United Nations General Assembly. “This worldview describes the world as an arena, a kind of battleground, in which everyone is fighting against everyone else and in which everyone has to assert their own interests, either alone or in alliances of convenience,” Gabriel told world leaders. “The motto ‘Our country first’ only leads to more national confrontations and less prosperity. In the end, there will only be losers,” he said, in a thinly veiled reference to US President Donald Trump’s oft-repeated...

    “From the Soviet Union to Cuba, Venezuela – wherever socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish, devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime.” – President Donald Trump, Sept. 19 Although it’s no surprise that the establishment press and mouthy radicals are trashing the speech President Trump gave this week at the United Nations, I don’t know if the sympathies he expressed in the above quote could have...

    Some networks like NBC, even sympathized with the American-hating regime of Iran while condemning our own president. MSNBC was no different, with anchor Brian Williams panicking on The Eleventh Hour September 20, that by Trump calling America “sovereign” he was sending a “dog whistle” to the UN that we didn’t need them anymore.

    It's safe to say that none of his many enemies among the global elites anticipated an intellectual challenge from Donald Trump. He doesn't look or talk or act the way they think an intellectual should. Yet somehow, he has placed them in a box. In his U.N. debut, he challenged the intellectual basis of the world order they are working toward. He personally addressed many of the political leaders in the audience when he said: …you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first. At this point, he received what sounded to me...

    Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday the Iranian people are waiting for an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his “extremely offensive” rhetoric and “unfounded” allegations about his country. Rouhani told a news conference that the Trump administration is seeking “an excuse” to pull out of the nuclear agreement that caps Iran’s nuclear activities which is supported by his government and the five other parties — Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. If the U.S. decides to break the agreement, Rouhani said, “any choice and any option” are open for Iran “that we see as beneficial to our country”...

    President Trump would do well to continue channeling Ronald Reagan and to rectify the abysmal failures of the Obama foreign policy of appeasement and apologies for America’s strength President Donald Trump came to the United Nations this week as the “representative of the American people,” not as the “global citizen” that Barack Obama had fancied himself to be. To paraphrase William Shakespeare, when Obama asked his global audiences to lend him their ears, he came to bury America under a heap of apologies for its alleged past misdeeds, not to praise America. President Trump could not have presented a starker...

    Robert DeNiro spoke on Tuesday to the United Nations about the destructive aftermath of Hurricane Irma on the island of Barbuda. Pardon the cynicism, but if it weren't for a personal and substantial financial investment at risk, would Robert De Niro really be speaking at the United Nations on behalf of a group of people whose name he awkwardly pronounces?

    CNS News ^ | 09/20/2017 | Patrick Goodenough
    Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday attacked “absurdities” in U.N. agencies’ treatment of Israel, invoking tennis legend John McEnroe, the Bible – and penguins – in a speech that was in turn deadly serious about Iran, upbeat about Israeli diplomatic breakthroughs, and thankful to the Trump administration for its outspoken support. Israeli leaders do not typically receive a warm reception at the annual U.N. General Assembly high-level session, but Netanyahu did generate some laughter when he suggested penguins are pro-Israel because they “have no difficulty recognizing that some things are black and white, are right and wrong.” “Unfortunately, when...

    In response to President Donald Trump’s (I never get tired of typing that) soaring speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Venezuelan Envoy Jorge Arreaza said “For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or President Trump in 2017.” Well, yes, that is exactly why Mr. Trump is President of the United States today. Mr. Arreaza, of course, thought his statement was an insult to the current U.S. President, as did every fake reporter in the fake news media, many of whom were no doubt getting major cases of the vapors as...

    POLITICAL VALUES   The president, addressing the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, laid out a nationalist basis for international interaction and lashed out at a group of 'rogue nations' led by North Korea and Iran. UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.—President Trump used his first appearance before world leaders assembled at the United Nations’ annual opening session Tuesday to offer a vision for international cooperation that was part red meat, part kumbaya. On the philosophical side, the “America First” president laid out a nationalist basis for international interaction, saying that national sovereignty and not multilateralism should be the foundation for international efforts to...

    President Donald Trump took aim at socialism and left-wing ideology during his speech at the United Nations – specifically in the context of Venezuela, a socialist state currently experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in its history. “The socialist Maduro regime has brought a once thriving nation to the brink of total collapse,” Trump said. “This dictatorship has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation, by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. ” “The problem in Venezuela is not that...

    President Donald Trump surprised the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday when he remarked that the collapsing situation in Venezuela was not due to the poor implementation of socialism, but rather its successful implementation. "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented," he said. Trump paused, and there was audible muttering in the chamber before some tepid applause broke out. "From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure," he said. {..snip..}
