President Trump Cites Bible in Unity Call; Touts “America First”
Jan 20, 2017 by Alex Newman
At his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States, President Donald Trump put the globalist establishment that has been selling out America for so long on notice: The American people are back in charge. Quoting the Bible and acknowledging God the Creator as the true source of America’s protection, Trump did not mince words when he described the betrayal of America by the self-appointed establishment. But starting today, Trump said the “historic movement” that propelled his campaign to victory against the entire establishment apparatus was ready to ensure that America will come first. No doubt globalists and establishment types — in both parties — were left squirming in their seats at the thought of it all.
While there was not much talk about the U.S. Constitution or restoring the many liberties that have been eroded in recent decades, Trump’s inauguration speech hit on some very important topics. For globalists and the establishment, it must have sounded like the end is really near. The ceremony, Trump said, has a “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,” he said. “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.”
Opposing the establishment’s dangerous ideology of globalism, and pursuing Americanism instead, was a center-piece of Trump’s historic campaign — a bid that even his fiercest critics acknowledge defied all the odds, as well as the bipartisan establishment and the media establishment that have for so long sold out America and the Constitution. In his inaugural address taking over as the 45th president of the United States, Trump continued on that theme. “Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families,” he said, emphasizing that “the people” were now back in charge of their government and their destiny. “January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”
As Trump described it, the American people have finally emerged victorious over a corrupt and dangerous establishment that has long been selling out America for its own benefit. “For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost,” he said, as many members of that “small group” that fought him tooth and nail looked on. “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.”
But today, “that all changes,” Trump declared. “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer,” he said. “Everyone is listening to you now.” Trump also called the movement he has benefited from “historic,” saying the world has never seen the likes of it before. At the center of the movement, he continued, is “a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.” No doubt globalists, the United Nations, members of the establishment Council on Foreign Relations, and all the other establishment swamp creatures that haunt Washington, D.C., and New York City were recoiling in horror at the new president’s stinging rebuke.
Noting that Americans had “just and reasonable demands” in expecting great schools, safe neighborhoods, and good jobs, the new president said many people exist in a different reality today. Trump painted a dark picture of a crime-ridden America, with rusty, shuttered factories, drug addiction, schools flush with cash but leaving America’s “beautiful students” without knowledge, and other problems. “This American carnage stops right here and stops right now,” Trump said, using a term that was immediately seized upon across social and traditional media as a hallmark of the speech. Of course, the federal government has no constitutional authority over schools, neighborhood safety, or factories — and yet it has managed to practically destroy them all in recent decades through unconstitutional meddling.
But if Trump’s words are to be believed — and the establishment’s unprecedented anti-Trump derangement indicates that he is serious — the selling out of America by establishment globalists is coming to an end. “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,” Trump explained accurately, regardless of which party was in power. “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.”
Despite the incredible division fomented by the anti-Trump establishment media, often using lies, Trump called repeatedly for national unity. He took aim at partisan politics and the race-mongers trying to divide America. “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice,” Trump explained. He also explicitly rejected racism in his call for Americans to be united. “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,” Trump said. “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.”
In yet another reference to God and a nod to the Christian voters who were so crucial in propelling his successful campaign to the White House, Trump also quoted the Bible in his speech. Specifically, Trump referred to Psalm 133:1, which tells of “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” He also noted that America must rely on divine protection for security. “When America is united, America is totally unstoppable,” he said, adding that there is nothing to fear because America is protected by her military, law-enforcement, “and, most importantly, we are protected by God.” Like virtually all U.S. presidents, including even Obama, who viciously mocked the Bible and those who believe it on multiple occasions during his term, Trump closed with “God Bless America.”
Despite criticism and hysteria by the Jesus haters of the radical Left, a diverse lineup of pastors, clerics, and priests from different Christian denominations prayed over the ceremony. Even a rabbi participated for the first time since Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, said by some analysts to be a reflection of the fact that Trump’s daughter Ivanka is a convert to Orthodox Judaism. Trump took his oath to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution using two Bibles, the one his mother gave him upon graduation from Sunday Church Primary School in 1955, and the one Abraham Lincoln used at his first inauguration. Vice President Mike Pence reportedly used Ronald Reagan’s family Bible.
As this magazine has documented, the establishment did practically everything in its power to prevent Trump’s victory and destroy his candidacy: lies, smears, false accusations, constant demonization, recount efforts, fake news, bogus “intelligence,” a bid to flip the votes of electors at the Electoral College, vote fraud, and more. But the establishment lost the fight, along with what remained of its credibility and legitimacy. And now, it has openly joined forces with the mass-murdering Communist Chinese dictatorship to preserve what former Vice President Joe Biden this week called the “liberal international order” in front of globalist and communist leaders at Davos.
Whether the desperate bid to preserve the dangerous “world order” globalists have imposed on humanity will succeed or not remains to be seen. But of course, the globalist establishment, which has burrowed its way into practically every power center in America over a period of generations, is unlikely to simply surrender power without a dirty fight. If Trump sticks to his campaign promises and the America First vision outlined in his inaugural address, though, establishment Insiders may finally be playing defense — for years to come. And that would be excellent news for America, liberty, and humanity as a whole.

President Trump Unveils Plans to Undo Much of Obama’s Damage
Jan 20, 2017 by Alex Newman
After quoting the Bible in a call for national unity, acknowledging God the Creator, blasting the establishment, and vowing to put “America First” in his inaugural address, President Donald Trump is reportedly ready to unleash a torrent of executive orders and actions. At the top of the agenda, administration officials say, is reversing some of the damage inflicted by former President Barack Obama with his infamous “pen and phone.” Among the first targets are Obama’s illegal “climate” schemes and his radical power grab purporting to regulate virtually all waters across the United States. Also in the cross-hairs are pseudo-“free trade” regimes such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ObamaCare is also on the chopping block. And the border will be brought back under control, the White House said. How much of Obama’s largely unconstitutional “legacy” will be undone, and how quickly, remains to be seen.
Immediately following his inauguration, Trump got straight to work on his first official acts as president. Among other duties, he signed a law passed by Congress to grant retired General James Mattis a waiver to legally serve as Trump’s secretary of defense, required by law because the Marine was still in military service less than seven years ago. Trump also signed documents making his cabinet picks official, joking that he assumed Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson had been confirmed today. And finally, Trump signed a document proclaiming a new “National Day of Patriotism.” The document was not yet available on the White House website by press time. Trump, smiling as he signed away, was surrounded by family, congressional leaders from both parties, and others, as attendees joked about who should get which pen that Trump used in his first official acts.
On the White House website, Obama’s “climate” antics and water regulations were among the first “harmful and unnecessary policies” targeted for elimination by Trump. The new administration vowed to immediately eliminate Obama’s illegal “Climate Action Plan,” for example, which usurped unconstitutional powers in a bid to illegally regulate emissions of the “gas of life,” also known as carbon dioxide and human breath. That means the United Nations Paris Agreement on “climate” is as good as dead, too, just as Trump promised. Another unconsitutional regulation, Obama’s “Waters of the United States” rule, is also toast. “Lifting these restrictions will greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years,” explained the new administration’s White House website, infuriating radical leftists, globalists, and pseudo-environmentalist outfits funded by what Senate investigators described as the “Billionaires’ Club.”
As part of what it touts as an “America First Energy Plan,” the new White House site also calls for accessing America’s vast energy resources — especially those on federal lands, with the revenues going to rebuild U.S. infrastructure. “We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands that the American people own,” explains President Trump’s new White House website, saying the plan will bring prosperity to millions of Americans. “We will use the revenues from energy production to rebuild our roads, schools, bridges and public infrastructure.” The pledge also notes that the energy industry has been held back for too long by “burdensome regulations.” Freeing up energy production will be a boost to U.S. agriculture, too, the administration said in a nod to embattled farmers terrorized for years by the swarms of extremist bureaucrats unleashed under Obama to crush rural America.
So-called “trade” deals feature prominently on the new site as well, with Trump vowing to target NAFTA, TPP, and other sovereignty- and economy-undermining international agreements right away. “For too long, Americans have been forced to accept trade deals that put the interests of insiders and the Washington elite over the hard-working men and women of this country,” the administration said, adding that the schemes have crushed American workers and communities. “This strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers.”
As far as specific policies, White House spokesman Sean Spicer laid out a number of the actions Trump planned to take at a Thursday press briefing, saying the new president would be acting as soon as possible. “Part of what he announced in the executive order list around the Thanksgiving time included the actions on both TPP and NAFTA,” Spicer told journalists. “They will be done by executive order so I think you will see those happen very shortly…. He is committed to not just Day 1, but Day 2, Day 3 of enacting an agenda of real change, and I think that you’re going to see that in the days and weeks to come.”
Spicer told assembled journalists to expect action on January 20, over the weekend, and into next week, on a wide range of issues that Trump campaigned on. And indeed, on Trump’s first day, the White House website announced the plan on NAFTA. “President Trump is committed to renegotiating NAFTA,” the site says. “If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA.” It was not immediately clear what might be included in the renegotiation, but so far, senior officials have already expressed concerns to Canadian authorities about NAFTA “tribunals” and the effect they have in undermining American national sovereignty.
Among the many executive actions Trump is expected to take is reversing an extraordinarily unpopular executive action by Obama purporting to authorize U.S. taxpayer funding of scandal-plagued abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s international operation. Both pro-life and pro-abortion sources have reported that Trump plans to re-instate the so-called “Mexico City Policy,” initially put in place by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, stopping the flow of American tax dollars to abortionists and abortion promoters around the world under the guise of “family planning.” Obama adopted the radical pro-abortion policy on his first week in office, and Trump is expected to undo it in his first week.
Eventually, the GOP-controlled Congress and Trump are universally expected to defund Planned Parenthood and its highly lucrative domestic schemes, too. Among other activities, the abortion group is involved in butchering more unborn babies than any other organization in America, funding pro-abortion Democrats and their political campaigns, pro-abortion political activism and lobbying, lawsuits to undo restrictions or regulations on killing the unborn, and more. After getting exposed trafficking in the body organs of babies, Planned Parenthood, founded by a racist eugenicist, became a lighting rod for criticism. And Trump campaigned on cutting off the tax-dollar spigot for the group.
In addition to the executive orders and policy, Trump is expected to visit the headquarters of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia, over the weekend. Under the leadership of Obama’s controversial appointees, the politicized intelligence agencies came under growing criticism for, among other things, perjury before Congress, manipulating intelligence, illegal spying, trying to undermine Trump, and more. Now, Trump reportedly wants peace with the rank-and-file agents, many of whom were disgusted by the actions of Obama’s radical appointees.
On the new White House website, the administration vowed to stand up for law enforcement, too, but fortunately for constitutionalists, did not advocate any unconstitutional policies suggesting federalization of police. “Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens’ ability to protect themselves,” the administration said, adding that it would uphold Americans’ gun rights protected in the Second Amendment at every level of the judicial system. “President Trump is committed to building a border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities. He is dedicated to enforcing our border laws, ending sanctuary cities, and stemming the tide of lawlessness associated with illegal immigration. Supporting law enforcement also means deporting illegal aliens with violent criminal records who have remained within our borders.” The site also says Trump will be a “law and order” president.
Trump’s team vowed to rebuild and support the military as well. In his inaugural speech, the president emphasized that he would not be seeking to impose America’s values on foreigners by force. However, “peace through strength will be at the center” of Trump’s foreign policy agenda, the administration said on its section about an “America First Foreign Policy.” The military plan calls for emphasis on cyber-warfare, a missile-defense system, defeating ISIS, “coalition military operations,” and more. Finally, the administration vowed to ensure the best possible care for veterans.
On jobs and the economy, the Trump administration vowed to achieve strong economic growth, with a special focus on manufacturing. “Since the recession of 2008, American workers and businesses have suffered through the slowest economic recovery since World War II,” the site says. “The U.S. lost nearly 300,000 manufacturing jobs during this period, while the share of Americans in the work force plummeted to lows not seen since the 1970s, the national debt doubled, and middle class got smaller. To get the economy back on track, President Trump has outlined a bold plan to create 25 million new American jobs in the next decade and return to 4 percent annual economic growth.” On his campaign website, the goal was 3.5 percent growth. Whether that will be accomplished remains to be seen.
In other excellent news for patriotic Americans concerned about the burden of a bloated federal workforce, a recent survey showed that more than one fourth of federal government workers were considering quitting or retiring under Trump. President Trump’s team has announced that the president intends to mandate a hiring freeze, which is a good start. But because dismissing government workers is so difficult, the fact that many are considering leaving on their own will be viewed as an amazingly positive development by the huge majority of Americans who think the federal government is totally out of control.
