Headline in the BBC following Trump speech at the United Nations yesterday ..Trump: US would destroy North Korea if forced to defend itself.
Coming from the country of Churchill whose soaring rhetoric during WWII deposed Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese threat, this is rich of the BEEB thundering on about President Trump warning about protecting the sovereignty of America! The BEEB hit-piece droned on: “US President Donald Trump has told the UN General Assembly that America would destroy North Korea if forced to defend itself or its allies. In his debut speech, he mocked North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, saying: “Rocket man is on a suicide mission. North Korea has tested nuclear bombs and missiles in defiance of the UN.
“The American leader also attacked Iran, saying it was a “corrupt dictatorship” intent on destabilising the Middle East.
“If [the US] is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Mr Trump said. President Trump’s threat to “totally destroy” North Korea is implausible, according to Stewart Patrick, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, a New York think tank.[end]
A “New York think tank?” How about the North American Chapter of the Globalist takeover Cabal with the likes of a Zbigniew Brzezinski and a Gyorgy Schwartz-Soros as its head? Well done BEEB on your scrupulous reportage. [sarc]
Hands UP from those of us in the US who are just happy to see a president speak plainly and tell it like it is, while at the same time waiting for the breathless and exculpatory Big Fake News Media “BREAKING NEWS!!” story today that’ll put an end to all the kudos he’s getting for a great speech. More than likely they’ll find a Russian somebody or other hiding in Manafort’s underwear drawer with which we’ll be inundated 24/7 by these specious network Oligarchs.
Enter Thomas Lifson, editor and publisher of American Thinker and his piece “Trump boxed in the globalists in his UN speech” …
It’s safe to say that none of his many enemies in 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 UN debut, he challenged the intellectual basis of the world order they are working towards. 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, it seems he received what sounded to me like the most applause he got that day. Politico’s transcript even notes the interruption for applause.
All responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens, and the nation-state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition.
Globalists are enemies of the nation-state. They much prefer a global scale and powerful multilateral bureaucracies running things. The EU is their prototype, specifically designed to weaken sovereignty for the common good, following the trauma inflicted by German nationalism in its National Socialist manifestation. In the EU right now, Hungary is supposed to subordinate its national interests to the greater good, and take its share of the Muslims entering the EU, a command it is defying.
This was the vision rejected by UK voters in the Brexit referendum. The globalist vision is fighting a defensive battle right now.
Here comes President Trump enunciating the principle that “the nation-state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition,” and putting it on the global agenda for discussion.
In the early years of the second world war, one of the greatest speeches in Western history was delivered over the entire BBC network, when Winston Churchill (in an erie foreshadow of the Trump speech to come) stated quite plainly and succinctly over the airwaves what Britain intended to do to those nations who would dare to defy Britain of her rightful sovereignty. Having been ignominiously driven out of Europe with the Dunkirk evacuation, Churchill’s famous speech to the House of Commons on 4 June 1940, is considered his finest oration.
It was incorporated into the 2009 movie “Into The Storm” with Brendan Gleeson as Churchill …
More from Thomas Lifson in his closer…
The peaceful utopian New World Order dreamed of by globalists thrives in darkness, you see. Stubborn voters think of themselves as citizens, bound together by common interests. Altruism has its appeal to the segment of the voting public that has enough surplus resources to afford some collective charity towards the rest of the world. But for most people, as Trump’s election showed in the US, national interest has great appeal.
Most establishmentarians ignored the challenge, but my favorite response so far to Trump’s challenge comes from Spencer Ackerman in the Daily Beast, who played (you guessed it!) the Nazi card, finding. “his familiar blood-and-soil themes that echo from the darker moments in European history.”
The really big problem for the globalists, the one requiring darkness, is that all multilateral institutions requiring sovereign members to behave altruistically fail. Stanley Meisler’s United Nations: A History makes this general point about UN failures.
It may or may not turn out to be a “tear down this wall” moment, but I think it is a landmark in the Trump presidency.
Yet again, Thomas Lifson has boomed another gem way out of the political ballpark. President Trump on a par with the president who shook his hand and suggested he run for president one day. Karma!
