The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
President Donald Trump was at the UN on Tuesday. There he delivered one of the most grand, soaring and inspirational speeches ever delivered by a U.S. president. It will be largely ignored and/or mis-portrayed by our fake national news media who hate everything this President says or does, but it will not and cannot be ignored by the array of despotic, globalist thugs and grifters who by and large make up the UN general assembly.
The President drew a stark contrast between himself and his four immediate predecessors in the job, standing firmly up for the sovereign rights of America and its people and culture, while at the same time extending the hand of peace and cooperation on terms that, if accepted by the other nations in the room, would be mutually beneficial for everyone. It was a magnificent moment of true American leadership that we could have never expected from Barack Obama or other globalist members of either major U.S. political party.
The full text of the speech can be found here, and I urge everyone to read it. But I want to print the closing 500 words or so here, because they are especially inspiring and do a great job of summing up the major points the President was making today.
Looking around this hall where so much history has transpired, we think of the many before us who have come here to address the challenges of their nations and of their times. And our thoughts turn to the same question that ran through all their speeches and resolutions, through every word and every hope. It is the question of what kind of world will we leave for our children and what kind of nations they will inherit.
The dreams that fill this hall today are as diverse as the people who have stood at this podium, and as varied as the countries represented right here in this body are. It really is something. It really is great, great history.
There is India, a free society over a billion people, successfully lifting countless millions out of poverty and into the middle class.
There is Saudi Arabia, where King Salman and the Crown Prince are pursuing bold new reforms.
There is Israel, proudly celebrating its 70th anniversary as a thriving democracy in the Holy Land.
In Poland, a great people are standing up for their independence, their security, and their sovereignty.
Many countries are pursuing their own unique visions, building their own hopeful futures, and chasing their own wonderful dreams of destiny, of legacy, and of a home.
The whole world is richer, humanity is better, because of this beautiful constellation of nations, each very special, each very unique, and each shining brightly in its part of the world.
In each one, we see awesome promise of a people bound together by a shared past and working toward a common future.
As for Americans, we know what kind of future we want for ourselves. We know what kind of a nation America must always be.
In America, we believe in the majesty of freedom and the dignity of the individual. We believe in self-government and the rule of law. And we prize the culture that sustains our liberty - a culture built on strong families, deep faith, and fierce independence. We celebrate our heroes, we treasure our traditions, and above all, we love our country.
Inside everyone in this great chamber today, and everyone listening all around the globe, there is the heart of a patriot that feels the same powerful love for your nation, the same intense loyalty to your homeland.
The passion that burns in the hearts of patriots and the souls of nations has inspired reform and revolution, sacrifice and selflessness, scientific breakthroughs, and magnificent works of art.
Our task is not to erase it, but to embrace it. To build with it. To draw on its ancient wisdom. And to find within it the will to make our nations greater, our regions safer, and the world better.
To unleash this incredible potential in our people, we must defend the foundations that make it all possible. Sovereign and independent nations are the only vehicle where freedom has ever survived, democracy has ever endured, or peace has ever prospered. And so we must protect our sovereignty and our cherished independence above all.
When we do, we will find new avenues for cooperation unfolding before us. We will find new passion for peacemaking rising within us. We will find new purpose, new resolve, and new spirit flourishing all around us, and making this a more beautiful world in which to live.
So together, let us choose a future of patriotism, prosperity, and pride. Let us choose peace and freedom over domination and defeat. And let us come here to this place to stand for our people and their nations, forever strong, forever sovereign, forever just, and forever thankful for the grace and the goodness and the glory of God.
Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the nations of the world.
Magnificent. Let it sink in, and then think of what kind of speech would have been delivered to the UN by a President Hillary Clinton. Then, after youve done that, thank the good Lord for his divine providence of intervention into the 2016 presidential election, because thats what it was.
That is all.

It was a great speech.
I checked CNN.com, curious what they pulled from the speech. Their big headline is that he was laughed at when he started.
*head hits desk*
Everyone should see the faces of the Chinese and Iranian ambassadors!!
If looks could kill!- Trumps speech shook them to the core!
Trump a magnificent human in many aspects but just as humble and flawed like the rest of us. A leftist scumbag he is not. Thank God He is President.
The whole speech was great, I really liked the part about the ICC. Been waiting a long time to hear that from a leader.
“...thank the good Lord for his divine providence of intervention into the 2016 presidential election, because thats what it was.”
I believe so, too. Lord knows the left cheated enough that Hillary should have won, and they knew it too. Hence their surprise.
