YOU simply cannot trust the MSM to report Donald Trump fairly. You cannot trust them to report him at all. They would rather pretend he hasn’t spoken, I suspect, especially when he comes out with such a damning indictment as he did on Saturday when he addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the world’s largest and most influential gathering of conservatives.
How many British, I wonder, are aware that he tore into the Democrats and the state of Western society in a barnstorming speech? A speech that detailed the Democrats’ destruction and weakening of America and the chaos Biden’s corrupt woke approach has unleashed on the world; a speech that attacked the socialists, globalists and Marxists supporting him, that condemned Trudeau’s tyranny, that demanded an immediate admission that the Covid emergency is over, that promised to ‘submit to their Left-wing tyranny no longer’ and finally to fight for the restoration of free speech in America? Very few, I expect. It was a comprehensive statement of how he plans to save the nation he loves.
This is what conservatives world over have been waiting for, a senior statesman pulling no punches: a top level attack on Trudeau, Covid restrictions, the Left’s and Biden’s transgender orthodoxy imposition, the 2020 election and the corrupt political establishment, the Washington swamp as well the witch hunt against him and the people of America – absolutely everything.
This then was a speech that not only clearly signalled his bid to return to the White House but comprehensively damned each and every aspect of the cultural and political degeneracy identified by Dr David Starkey last week that has left the West so weakened and exposed.
Typically the Independent, one UK outlet that did report it, went into a ‘demonisation’ overdrive that gave no idea of the turning point Trump’s speech marks as an analysis of, and attack on, the dangerous world of illusion, stupidity and hypocrisy that has come to mark the West under Biden and his corrupt cronies. Of the US outlets, the New York Times was also par for the anti- Trump course with their ‘fact-checkers’ brought out to accuse Trump of misleading about Biden, a Russian pipeline and gas prices.
So, to set the record straight on what the MSM don’t want you to know, this is my selection of his key points and comments, followed by the speech itself (difficult to find via Google) for you to watch.
He starts with a stark comparison between today’s realities and a year ago: We had the most secure borders, record low gas prices, energy independence, fast economic recovery, an unrivalled military and peace and quiet around the world. Now inflation is the highest in 40 years, record high oil prices, supply chains crumbling, China threatens Taiwan and Russia decimating Ukraine, Iran on the cusp of a nuclear bomb, ‘our great American military humiliated in its surrender from Afghanistan’ and a potential major war in Europe.
Condemning the Russian attack on Ukraine as an outrage, an atrocity that should never have been allowed to happen, Trump says: ‘Biden has turned calm to chaos, competence into incompetence, stability into anarchy and security into catastrophe. Under Bush Russia invaded Georgia, under Obama, Russia took Crimea, under Biden it invaded Ukraine . . . under our leadership the world was peaceful because America was strong.’
The real problem is not that Putin is smart, he says, but that ‘our leaders are dumb’. In this assault on humanity Putin is playing Biden like a drum and has no incentive to disengage while oil prices just get higher and higher – more than paying for his war.
On American political culture:
Over the past year we have seen weakness, self-loathing and self-destruction on a scale previously unthinkable . . . a military obsessed with equity. . . the Department of Homeland Security actively aiding illegal immigration; the Department of the Interior forcing us to be reliant on foreign energy at a cost we can’t afford, a Department of Justice waging war on the opposition party: ‘As grave as the dangers abroad, it is the destruction within that spells our doom.’
In no uncertain terms Trump spells out that footing the bill for a failed foreign policy through ever higher energy costs is ‘unsustainable as a nation’. The preoccupation with the future minimal global warming in a world that is about to blow up and disintegrate over energy is sheer folly: ‘These people are not living in a world of reality,’ he said, referring to John Kerry’s recent speech.
‘They say sovereignty must be defended at all costs while they are destroying our own borders. Under Biden we are surrendering our own sovereignty.’
‘If the radical Democrats want to fight for democracy abroad they should start with the democracy that is under threat right next door. A place called Canada. The tyranny we have witnessed in Canada in recent weeks should shock and dismay people around the world.’ In an advanced Western democracy the peaceful movement of patriotic truckers protesting for their basic rights and liberties has been violently put down. . . (they have been) slandered as Nazis, racists and terrorists, murderers and rapists, arrested and charged with phoney crimes. ‘A line has been crossed’.
Covid and corruption:
“It is far past time to declare independence from every Covid mandate . . . with one voice America must admit that the emergency is over and that we will submit to their Left-wing tyranny no longer’, a tyranny that is doing so much to damage our children.
Covid mandates are just one part of a much larger crisis: ‘The radical Left is trying to replace democracy with woke tyranny’ and ‘they need to be exiled into political oblivion never to return again’ – Biden, Schuma, Pelosi, the sinister forces of this lawless, corrupt establishment who enrich their families in Ukraine, Russia and China while they shut down your small businesses right here at home; while they send young Americans to fight for the borders of distant nations they throw our borders open; let criminals loose without charges while they prosecute their political opponents; while they indoctrinate children to hate their parents and set the FBI on to a school board mother while encouraging children to pick their own gender.
There is plenty more – he leaves few stones unturned. You can watch it from his entrance here, all the way through.
