The Greatest President
January 20th, 2017:
Do you remember where you were that day, what you were doing and what may have been so important you had to drop everything, turn on the radio or tv to listen to him speak??
Maybe you were actually there, because millions were.
No matter where you were or how you felt about the man who won the 2016 US Presidency, most likely you, along with many citizens of the world, stopped your daily life routine to watch the grand spectacle and hear the grand words of The Greatest Patriot ever to come on the scene.
Likely you have heard it before, but have you ever read President Donald J. Trump's Inaugural Address?
It's more powerful in written form than it ever could be spoken, for the written word, left unhampered, does not lie or change. There is no twisting of it or omitting of any one truth it imparts.
Read it and then THINK about what he said. He is keeping every single promise made.
REMARKS OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP – AS PREPARED FOR DELIVERY INAUGURAL ADDRESS FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2017
As Prepared for Delivery –
Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.
We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.
Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.
For too long, a small group in our nation's Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.
Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.
Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation's Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.
This is your day. This is your celebration.
And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now.
You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.
Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.
These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;
Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;
We've defended other nation's borders while refusing to defend our own;
And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.
We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.
From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this moment on, it's going to be America First.
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.
We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
The Bible tells us, "how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity."
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.
There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.
In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over.
Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.
We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.
So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:
You will never be ignored again.
Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.
We Will Make America Wealthy Again.
We Will Make America Proud Again.
We Will Make America Safe Again.
And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.
THERE YOU HAVE IT!
President Trump laid out his (still ongoing) plan to clean up the deep state swamp mess and as it follows, to help clean our world as well from organized evil perpetrators.
So I posed this question to a few Pro-Trumpers:
In the 4 years since President Trump has been officiating from a place some call the most powerful office in the world, can you tell me why you believe President Trump is the Best President Ever??
He has an absolutely extreme gift and he's humble by comparison.
Everything he strives to achieve is more of the same spiritual purpose , to assemble and lead the awakening of humanity to God's Almighty Light. He is realizing his true passion and potential in Gods name. That's why I respect him.
He sets the example of very high standards, maintains it personally and expects the same integrity from everyone.
He doesn't preach he teaches and shows everyone as they are ready.
The world is becoming Donald's church. " ~ Hunter Gall
He will successfully complete an operation that was started almost 60 years ago and the JFK Legacy will live on forever. And through these acts, he will restore and harmonize the World. Quite a selfless retirement, right? Trump's Legacy will be YUGE. " ~ Carol Allen
Perhaps even more profound than the above, President Trump genuinely cares about people—a quality that is extremely rare among those who seek power over others. For his entire life and career, Donald Trump has unfailingly protected the common folk, and identifies himself with ordinary people. "No one person is above another," is not a slogan for him, he is unfailingly diligent in treating people well and fairly. His entire life refutes the lie that he regards people less based or race, gender or any other superficial (liberal) distinction; our President is both a tough fighter, and a consummate gentleman.
This is precisely what makes him second only to George Washington in his greatness as our President: He genuinely loves and serves We the People, and fully intends to fulfill his promise to return the power of our government to us, amen. " ~ Donald Garrett
WE THE PEOPLE were to Self Govern. That is what our original constitution was written for and about.
Of the people, by the people, for the people!
WE THE PEOPLE are the ones who allowed the original intent to slip away into the tyranny we see today. Trump told us, in his first inaugural speech, exactly what he was going to do and that has not changed.
And one thing is for sure, he is not alone!
PRESIDENT TRUMP is counting on us, WE THE PEOPLE, to follow through and help him finish this!
I believe the original Constitution of the United States of America is the one document PRESIDENT TRUMP Honors Above all Qthers.
Can I ask you, do you know it?
Have you read it recently? No offense, but have you read it at all?
Do you understand what President Trump understands and is acting upon during this attempt by the contemptuous arrogant China CCP inspired 'steal the presidency' ?
It is not my intention here to convince you of anything, but merely my attempt at getting YOU, the fine reader, to initiate the research and thinking for yourself.
Do you really believe that the thousands of accomplishments President Trump and his administration have secured for We the People over the last hard working 4 years will be allowed to fall by the way side?
