A PROVIDENTIAL PRESIDENT

providential-presidentRemember the day for it may go down in history – September 19, 2017 – the day the leaders of the world learned America has a Providential President.

No one ever has talked to them like that – ever, not even Ronaldus Magnus.  Trump’s speech to the UN was Reaganesque on steroids.  The most entertaining moment came when he condemned “the socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela.”

Watch Trump’s expression in the clip below after he delivers this line:

“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”  

The leaders had just applauded his call for “the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in Venezuela.”  But when they heard that, they were stunned into silence or nervous laughter.  As he waits through their shock, his smirk tells you he knew exactly what he was doing.

He was fully aware that the majority of people he was talking to were corrupt socialist despots – this is the UN General Assembly after all – who justify their rule with the same socialist bromides of being “for the people” as does Maduro.  Trump couldn’t have said anything more to kick them in their political cojones than this.

And he knew it.  So he stood there through their shock, daring them not to applaud – which they then reluctantly did.  Then he drove it home:

“From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and 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.” 

How many leaders knew Trump was talking about them?  Yet he never condemned them by name or directly at all.  Just the most lunatic among them, Maduro, Rocket Man, and Iran’s Mullahs.

Another example of wicked brilliance.  He singled out Russia and China for praise by name:

“The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russia for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council.  Thank you to all involved.”

Yet a few minutes earlier, in an ode to the sovereignty of nations, he warned:

We must reject threats to sovereignty, from the Ukraine to the South China Sea.”

And just what countries are threatening Ukraine and the South China Sea?  No one else but Russia and China respectively.  Both got the message.

Which is: I’ll treat you with respect and make deals with you that are to our equally mutual advantage – but don’t even think you can snooker me, intimidate me, push me around, or try to appease you when you saber-rattle.  Not happening.

The speech’s theme was the sovereignty of nations – as against the George Soros globalist agenda of open borders and supra-national organizations (like the EU) dictatorially ordering nations around.  It was an argument for the morality of sovereignty:

 “In foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty.  Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens — to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values. 

 

As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first.”

 Most interesting is how Randian his argument was, bringing to mind the creed of Ayn Rand’s character of John Galt in Atlas Shrugged:

“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”

This is the morality of non-sacrifice embodied in the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

That is, I have the moral right to pursue my own personal happiness – and so does everyone else.  Which means I have no moral right to demand other people must pursue my happiness instead of theirs, and they have no right to demand that I must pursue their happiness instead of mine.

The curious problem in formulating this is there is no word in the English language for it.  There is only the word for treating other people as a means to your own ends without rights of their own:  selfish.  There is only the word for treating yourself as a means to the ends of others without rights of your own:  unselfish.

There is no word for putting yourself first without acting selfishly, without treating others as if they must put you first instead of themselves – but rather giving others the moral right to put themselves first too, treating them with honor and integrity on the basis of mutual cooperation to mutual benefit.

That’s how you create a world of peaceful honest trade of value for value, and avoid a world of violence, fraud, and oppression.

Thus Trump declares:

“Strong, sovereign nations let diverse countries with different values, different cultures, and different dreams not just coexist, but work side by side on the basis of mutual respect… And strong, sovereign nations allow individuals to flourish in the fullness of the life intended by God.

 

The United States will forever be a great friend to the world, and especially to its allies.  But we can no longer be taken advantage of, or enter into a one-sided deal where the United States gets nothing in return.

 

As long as I hold this office, I will defend America’s interests above all else.

 

But in fulfilling our obligations to our own nations, we also realize that it’s in everyone’s interest to seek a future where all nations can be sovereign, prosperous, and secure…

 

For the diverse nations of the world, this is our hope.  We want harmony and friendship, not conflict and strife.”

However, if the rogue nations of the world insist on conflict and strife, they will get it — for:

“If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.  When decent people and nations become bystanders to history, the forces of destruction only gather power and strength.”

Note how Trump spools up the Nork threat:

“No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea.  It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more

 

Now North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.  

 

It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime, but would arm, supply, and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict.  No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.”

Who is he talking to here?  China, above all makes the Nork regime possible.  So take care of the problem, Chicoms, or else I will:

If it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.  Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”

Of course Trump knew these words would be the headline news of his speech, along with his contemptuous sobriquet of Rocket Man for the crazy little fat kid.  The purpose is to tee up the acceptance of his next turn of the screw on the Chicoms should they not heed his warning.

Shutting down all trade with any country that trades with the Norks – including Pakistan, India, Russia, Thailand, and China itself – would be a massive business disruption, but it’s massively better as an alternative to nuclear war.

Trump is telling the Chicoms:  it’s your call, have Kim suffer a tragic natural death and put in your guy to denuclearize the place, or I’m going to squeeze your economy’s gao wan so tight they’ll explode.

And that didn’t take long, did it?  Today  (9/21), 48 hours after Trump’s speech, Reuters is reporting that Beijing has ordered all Chinese banks to stop doing business with North Korea.

Now Trump is well aware that China is a shame culture not a guilt culture, without remorse for screwing you over whenever they can – for if you’re such a pussy that you let yourself be taken advantage of, you deserve it.

So he’ll have little patience for words, e.g., orders to banks, without the actions that speak far louder.  The screw will continue to turn with just words.

The shock value of saying “totally destroy” was to effect a cold shower realization that he is literally deadly serious not just about the Norks, but other lunatic threats America and so many countries in the world face – such as “Radical Islamic Terrorism” (yes, he used that exact term), and the terror-masters of Iran:

“We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles, and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program.  

 

The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.  Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States…

 

It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction.  It is time for the regime to free all Americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained.  And above all, Iran’s government must stop supporting terrorists, begin serving its own people, and respect the sovereign rights of its neighbors.”

There was more wicked brilliance in how he chastised the UN – one of the most corrupt and bureaucratic monstrosities on earth.

“Too often the focus of this organization has not been on results, but on bureaucracy and process.  In some cases, states that seek to subvert this institution’s noble aims have hijacked the very systems that are supposed to advance them.  

 

For example, it is a massive source of embarrassment to the United Nations that some governments with egregious human rights records sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council…

 

The American people hope that one day soon the United Nations can be a much more accountable and effective advocate for human dignity and freedom around the world”.

Few missed what he was saying:  That the UN is not now an accountable and effective advocate for human dignity and freedom.

Thus he returned to his theme of sovereignty with his words a warning that country leaders must not subordinate their independence to supra-national bureaucrats – like in the UN:

“If we are to embrace the opportunities of the future and overcome the present dangers together, there can be no substitute for strong, sovereign, and independent nations.

 

Today, if we do not invest ourselves, our hearts, and our minds in our nations, if we will not build strong families, safe communities, and healthy societies for ourselves, no one can do it for us. 

 

We cannot wait for someone else, for faraway countries or far-off bureaucrats — we can’t do it.  We must solve our problems, to build our prosperity, to secure our futures, or we will be vulnerable to decay, domination, and defeat.”

And what is the single most important requirement for this?  Patriotism.

The true question for the United Nations today, for people all over the world who hope for better lives for themselves and their children, is a basic one:  Are we still patriots?  

 

Do we love our nations enough to protect their sovereignty and to take ownership of their futures?  Do we revere them enough to defend their interests, preserve their cultures, and ensure a peaceful world for their citizens?”

At this point, he stopped talking to his audience in the hall, for his next words were meant for the American people – and especially as a rebuke to the ilk of the Left who hate their own country:

From its very first moments, the American story is the story of what is possible when people take ownership of their future.

 

The United States of America has been among the greatest forces for good in the history of the world, and the greatest defenders of sovereignty, security, and prosperity for all.” 

After eight years of a Hate America Presidency, we have its antithesis, a 100% Patriotic American Presidency.  A President with the moral courage to heroically state proudly in front of the entire world:

“The United States of America has been among the greatest forces for good in the history of the world.”

Is it too much to wonder if this President is a gift of Providence?

He ended with soaring eloquence:

“Our hope is a world of proud, independent nations that embrace their duties, seek friendship, respect others, and make common cause in the greatest shared interest of all:  a future of dignity and peace for the people of this wonderful Earth.

 

This is the true vision of the United Nations, the ancient wish of every people, and the deepest yearning that lives inside every sacred soul.

 

So let this be our mission, and let this be our message to the world:  We will fight together, sacrifice together, and stand together for peace, for freedom, for justice, for family, for humanity, and for the almighty God who made us all.”  

This speech is beyond magnificent.  In our lifetimes only Ronald Reagan could have matched it.  It causes you to realize that we are truly blessed to have this man at this crucial time in our nation’s history as our president.  We need to be thankful for the blessing.
