When Donald Trump started his run for office, I had trouble taking him seriously. When he proved he had chance of winning the Republican nomination, I furiously blamed the news media. It seemed to me that many in the news media promoted him because they thought Hillary Clinton would easily beat him.

When Trump won the nomination, I supported him because he was not Hillary Clinton. When Trump won the election and the presidency, I wondered what would happen next.

When Trump gave his first speech as president, I cheered. He made it clear he was there to fight for the country, and fought he has.  The man has a vision. Today at the United Nations he shared it with the world.

Here is a video of Trump’s speech.

Here is the “Full transcript of Donald Trump’s speech to UN General Assembly (”.

Very few Christians voted for Trump because they thought he provided a good example of Christian values. Yet, the man does have a vision.

Proverbs 29:18 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish:
but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Here is a different translation.

Proverbs 29:18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

18 Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained;
But happy and blessed is he who keeps the law [of God].

Here is a passage passage from Ezekiel that illustrates the principle. Here God told the people of Israel of the disaster that was to come. Because they had waited until it was too late to give any regard to His Will, when they finally sought it, the prophets and the priests had nothing, no vision,  no revelation of God and His word, to offer.

Ezekiel 7:23-27 Amplified Bible (AMP)

23 ‘Prepare the chain [for imprisonment], for the land is full of bloody crimes [murders committed under the pretense of civil justice] and the city is full of violence. 24 Therefore, I will bring the worst of the [Gentile] nations, and they will take possession of their houses [those of the people of Judah]; I will also silence their pride, and their holy places will be profaned. 25 When anguish comes, they [of Judah] shall seek peace, but there will be none. 26 Disaster will come upon disaster and rumor will be heaped on rumor; they will seek a vision from a prophet, but the law and guidance will be lost from the priest and [wise] counsel [will cease] from the elders. 27 The king [of Judah] will mourn and the prince (Zedekiah) will be clothed with [garments of] despair and anguish, and the hands of the people of the land shall tremble [in terror]. I will deal with them in accordance with their conduct, and by their judgments I will judge them. And they will know [without any doubt] that I am the Lord.’”

Like one of the prophets of old, our president has spoken bluntly to the leaders of the United Nations. He has told them we must come together to solve our security problems. He has told where we must put our hope.

Our hope is a word and [sic] 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. (from here)

We may not all be Christians, but we all know that it is wrong to abuse other people. We all have God’s moral law written upon our hearts. If we (all the people of this little world) don’t pay attention to our sense of right and wrong and voluntarily do what is right, we risk destroying each other.



  1. Thanks for the post. We need more like this, too many are too quick to vilify our president. Politics aside, he should be respected for the office he holds, and lately for how well he is doing!
    (I had somehow lost touch with your blog. I’m glad I “found” it again!)
    Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

  2. Unsurprisingly, the Diplomad gave Trump’s speech a thumbs up too. 🙂

    “Now, of course, some of the bien pensants in the media and among the traditional foreign policy establishment have lost their minds because of the words “totally destroy North Korea.” He was not threatening North Korea; he was being honest. He provided an honest even obvious description of what a war provoked by North Korea would produce, to wit, the destruction of North Korea. Is that an accurate description? Yes. “Rocket man” and his defenders need to remember that.”

    Indeed the bien pensants did lose their mind with that wording. The “totally destroy North Korea” line is topping the headlines….with the context “if we are forced to defend ourselves against them” removed…
    Of course.

    1. Anyone who has studied WWII and still doesn’t realize what we will do North Korea if sufficiently provoked has not studied WWII.

      The key is the expression “vital national interests”. When North Korea started using the prospect that it could possess nuclear tipped ICBMs to bully its neighbors and the United States, that crossed a line. No longer was North Korea just threatening our interests in the far East. At that point North Korea started threatening the United States itself. Attacks against the United States clearly threaten our vital national interests, and we have and do destroy nations that threaten our vital national interests.


  3. I think the only people on the planet that didn’t love this speech where those who hated HOW GREAT HE PRESENTED HIMSELF because they fight him tooth and nail anyways! It was GREAT!

  4. That was awesome.
    I wonder when the last time was a US president stood up at the UN headquarters in front of the Council of UN delegates and welcomed them all and said it’s great to be standing in New York. LOL
    I”ll bet they don’t like being reminded of that.

    1. My favorite portion of the whole thing:
      “Too often, the focus of this organisation has not been on results, but on bureaucracy and process. In some cases, states that seek to subvert this institution’s noble ends 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 UN Human Rights Council.

      The United States is one out of 193 countries in the United Nations, and yet we pay 22 per cent of the entire budget and more. In fact, we pay far more than anybody realises.

      The United States bears an unfair cost burden. But, to be fair, if it could actually accomplish all of its stated goals, especially the goal of peace, this investment would easily be well worth it.’

      Bet they don’t like being reminded of that either.

  5. I thought it was a marvelous speech ( except I may have used a different reference other than rocket man 😉 ) and I whole heartedly agreed with Benjamin Netanyahu’s assessment.
    The news however also ran the assessment of the Venezuelan’s president’s remarks which were very negative and as usual anti US (shades of Chavez calling Bush the Devil)—which I would not have run…
    and your aside to me earlier regarding the media as a tool of the Devil, in my humble opinion, is not far off the mark Tom!
    I am happy to finally hear a president address that body of jellyfish as a man of a country who is focused and determined…no mambie pambie wishy washy apologies or coddling there—and it’s about time!!
    A ‘we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more’ sort of stance—-and then maybe the mouthy school yard bullies will finally shut up!!
    America use to lead…it’s time to lead again….
    Reagan would be proud!

    1. Frankly, I prefer he would have used the word fool rather than rooket man.

      Why. In my opinion. it is a better word judgement for someone who cannot understand the consequences of playing with of a nuclear bomb.

        1. I agree, he has a unique style to make a point.

          I still prefer the word fool because it judges a persons actions more so than a persona.

          Some people take the use of nicknames personal affronts even though many times they the pithy name can hit the mark of a person;s persona. if taken lightly.

          Nuclear foolery though should not be taken lightly under any circumstances in my opinion.

          In other words, professional card players players call a spade a spade when they “Trump” another player.

          Then again Trump is not a professional politician, and that is why I voted for him.

          1. Oh I know—the human rights issue alone is overwhelming. That unto itself is cause for some sort of action—but I fear the people are so utterly brainwashed, they wouldn’t understand why there were those trying to come into the country to save them….

          2. That is probably true, and it should serve as a first rate example of why our First Amendment rights are so important. Very few North Koreans have any idea what the outside world is like. Their government works ruthlessly to keep them isolated so that they can be more easily dominated.

            One of the problems during WWII was that the Japanese people were convinced by their government that Americans were monsters. That’s why many died or even committed suicide before they would surrender.

            There has even been arguments over whether the Japanese military ordered civilians to kill themselves. It is a strange, sad, and shameful bit of history. Here are a some links.






            In retrospect, we can see some things the people of that day cannot, but we cannot put ourselves in their place. All we can do is try to imagine the horror that might have resulted if our troop had landed in force on islands of Japan.

            Because it is still in living memory, the Japanese still angrily wrestle with the truth of World War 2. What we do with the American Civil War is use it as a lever for political advantage. Our argument over the Confederate monuments is so silly by comparison. Trying to label someone as a bigot just because they don’t want a century old statue destroyed is stupid. What is wrong is hiding the truth.

  6. Appears he has presented a clear, frank, candid, and concise message of his vision, plan and policy for the USA and World.

    That is what a leader does. His plan appears to me to be aboveboard, realistic, and pragmatic in my opinion.

    If anyone does not agree with his vision and plan, I would hope they would present their vision in the same manner. All I seem to hear from his opposition is criticism without a vision, a plan, or a policy.

    My accolades to his speech.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.
