If there is still any question in your mind why Trump was elected and whether he "gets it". Oh, he gets it. He gets it on a grand scale and obviously recognizes the big picture…the salvation of western civilization itself. These are powerful words.

In Warsaw this morning, President Trump delivered what the White House sees as one of the most important speeches of his presidency. He didn’t identify himself with the nationalist populist ruling party in Poland, but has something grander in mind. The president presented himself as the leader of the West during an address to thousands of Poles in a public square. Trump’s team, led by senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, saw an opportunity to use the story of the Polish resistance as the setting for a new rallying cry to Western civilization.
“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. … Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield — it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls… Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to counter forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization.”

I know those words don’t seem like a big deal to us, but the fact that the leader of the free world is using rhetoric like this is truly a big deal.
Trump isn’t perfect but I sure am glad I voted for him.

  1. The waves of population lapping on the shores of Christendom is from what their own evil hands sent forth. When a nation’s standard of living rises it birth rate declines. Christendom chose to gorge the riches of Africa and keep the local populations enslaved under dictatorships answerable to Christendom.
    So no rise in the standard of living drives up the birth rate in impovished nations. What is happening today with mass migration is a result of the evil doings of Christendom.

    • Very generalized and bigoted comment. It’s not “Christendom” to blame, it’s corrupt government and its allies in the leadership of all of the religions who are also corrupted.

      • No. It is Christendom to blame. For several centuries now every European nation has claimed a part of Afrika to exploit. And every nation’s people were proud to put their name to a piece of afrika. and claim its wealth as theirs.
        Christendom did the deed now they are reaping what they sowed.

        • Faris the Fool: who caused the Crusades? Name one country that has never looted or conquered another at some time in history. What is the difference between Christianity & Christendom? Name one country run by muslims then or now that meets your meticulous standards. Name one Muslim country that offers the freedoms America–with all its faults–gives to Americans & others who live here? Christendom no longer exists so what is your beef? Christians are being persecuted right HERE TODAY as well as all over the world. Ever hear about that? If this country is so awful, why dont you leave? If we are so awful, why are millions of immigrants beating down our doors to come here? Name one muslim country that is overrun with immigrants dying to live there. When you do your homework then load us up with your ignorant banalities….

        • Again, generalized and bigoted. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but Europe and most of the West have abandoned their christian beliefs, so the term “Christendom” is antiquated and designed to stir up religious strife, which the wold has had quite enough of. It is multinational corporatism that exploits every possible nation.

      • Faris undoubtedly is another genius brainwashed by Marxist atheist teachers & professors who are supported by taxpayers & who use the bully pulpit to preach hatred to students who get failing grades if they challenge them. As a retured college professor I witnessed this travesty called “education.” Parents & taxpayers would be horrifief if they only knew how PC brainwashed our kids are today.

    • Farus-How about the black Africans who sold other blacks
      Into slavery? Study world history, then list one country that has never ever looted or invaded another country. Look what happened when the evil whites were forced out of Africa: the blacks began killing each other & destroyed their economies: South Africa, Zimbabwe, most of Africa today is black, bankrupt, corrupt, fighting disease, fighting among black tribes, raping, killing, torturing, abducting & enslaving other black countries. Please note that many whites & many Christians marched with King & Chavez (myself included) & whites & Christians have in fact been killed trying to help blacks & others. You never hear about that. How about our Peace Corps, Doctors Without Borders, the Red Cross, & many Christians have volunteered time & even died in Third World countries. Ever hear about them? Where were the muslims when Haiti was destroyed? When New Orleans was destroyed? When Afrucan dictators tortured & murdered their own people or other tribes?

  2. Good, optimistic presentation of his speech, thanks. Will not join naysayers and know-it-alls below who have nothing to do but nit pick as if they were professional pundits. These days, EVERYONE has an opinion about every damn thing going on and of course it is the “correct” one in their minds.

          • Your inability to articulate beyond adolescent insult says it all Chris. You have an opportunity to meet and talk with strangers from all over the world here and you choose to act like this. Wonder why? It is like going to Hawaii and staying in the hotel for a week.
            Try to suck it up and not be reactive but rather active in your brain power. Reach inside and talk about real things not attempting a pissing contest. We all want to hear bright, intelligent, thought filled comments.

          • piss off you trolling rodent. your smug attitude is really irritating. you seem to think,or do you? that leaving comments after an article means going into essay form and intricate detail. how totally pathetic. its obvious you have no life to speak of a comment can be one word if the writer wishes it to be. this is not the place to rant and rave . i believe you are a lonely person that no one talks to. get lost .

          • Again with the childish acting out, unable to converse as an adult. Striking out at strangers who are more then willing to listen to any intelligent or insightful comments, with a blocked profile is indicative of your problem friend, not mine.
            Look at my post, see if I am anything you accuse me of being. As Joe Blow I had over 8000 upvotes in an eight month period because I don’t resort to name calling or insults. I am here to learn and grow in knowledge and share it as well.
            Unfortunately I must block you as it appears to be a waste of time attempting civil discussion with you. Bye.

  3. A “civilization” built upon the historical exploitation, land-grabbing, and oppression of other societies has no business calling itself “civilized.”

    • Besides America, name all the other countries who have done that. How oppressed are you in America? If oppressed, please find a better country more to your tastes…ill help buy your ticket.

  4. “the salvation of western civilization itself” What pretentious crap.
    Sorry, it was just a brainless speech.
    A few shovelfuls of red meat for his xenophobic base back in the sticks.
    He understands nothing about the conflict going on, and neither do people who write this kind of stuff.
    America is itself largely responsible for “the threat” he speaks of.
