During the Commencement ceremonies at the US Coast Guard Academy, President Donald Trump praised the graduates and the Coast Guards fine work in defending the United States. He also took the opportunity to eviscerate the liberal MSM and their unfair treatment of his administration.
The president praised the 199 graduates for choosing to defend the country and their parents who raised them to pursue military service.
“These fine young cadets are about to take their rightful place on the front line of defense for the United States of America,” he said in a commencement speech at the academy in New London, Connecticut. “Cadets, you deserve not only the congratulations but the gratitude of each and every American, and we all salute you.”
It was Mr. Trump’s first commencement address to a U.S. military academy, and he went to lengths to highlight the important and unique role the Coast Guard plays in national security.
“Out of the five branches of our Armed Services, it’s only the Coast Guard that has the power to break through 21 feet of rock-solid Arctic ice, right?” he told the cadets. “You’re the only ones. And I’m proud to say that under my administration, as you just heard, we will be building the first new heavy icebreakers the United States has seen in over 40 years.”
President Trump provides a lesson to the Coast Guard graduates and some advice when dealing with pressure like the unfair actions of the MSM:
In a commencement ceremony at the Coast Guard Academy, Mr Trump said “no politician in history … has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
“Over the course of your life, you’ll find things are not always fair,” he said. “Things happen to you that you do not deserve and are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.”
DHS says FBI Investigating 300 refugees for Terror Ties Many from Countries on Trump’s Travel Ban List
MAYBE THIS IS THE REASON WHY TRUMP THINKS THERE SHOULD BE A TEMPORARY TRAVEL BAN TO RE-ACCESS THINGS …
It would appear that President Donald Trump and his temporary travel ban is looking to make America safe again. As reported at Town Hall, the FBI is currently investigating 300 refugees that have been admitted into the United States for ties to terrorism. This is after so-called vetting procedures failed and thus allowing them in America in the first place. REALLY? Also reported is that many of these refugees come from countries that are listed on President Donald Trump’s executtive order, temporarily banning travel from in order to review the vetting process.
The FBI is investigating at least 300 refugees admitted to the U.S. for ties to terrorism after vetting from the countries they came from failed. Fox News Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge has the story:
Nearly a third of the 1,000 FBI domestic terrorism cases – 300 – involve those admitted to the U.S. as refugees, a Department of Homeland Security official said Monday. Officials said some of those 300 came to “infiltrate” the U.S., while others were radicalized once they were in the country.
Monday’s development marked the first official concrete linkage between the refugee program and terrorism.
During a speech to the National Association of Attorneys General in 2015, FBI Director James Comey said agents were working on nearly 1000 ISIS linked cases throughout the United States.
Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly said the travel ban announced Monday was a key to ansuring the refugee program is conducted safely.
“We must undertake a rigorous review of our visa and refugee vetting programs to increase our confidence in the entry decisions we make for visitors and immigrants to the United States,” Kelly said. “We cannot risk the prospect of malevolent actors using our immigration system to take American lives.”
Several refugees have already participated in mass attacks in recent years motivated by apparent Islamic radicalism.
Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan rammed his car into a crowd at The Ohio State University in November after posting a message on Facebook warning America not to interfere with Muslim communities. Somali refugee Dahir Adan reportedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” and asked one victim if they were Muslim during a September rampage in which he stabbed and injured nine people at a Minnesota mall. Seddique Mateen, the father of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, is an Afghan refugee. Countless other refugees have been convicted of plotting attacks or planning to join ISIS abroad.
Though they didn’t enter the nation as refugees, several other terrorists have benefited from inadequate vetting to come to the U.S.
Tashfeen Malik, who was born in Pakistan, came to the U.S. on a K-1 “fiancée” visa prior to engaging in a deadly shooting spree with husband Syed Rizwan Farook that killed 14 and injured 22 others in December 2015. Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the brothers who orchestrated the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, were born in Kyrgyzstan and entered the U.S. when their family filed for asylum.
AG Sessions Recuses Himself from Democrat Conspiracy & Allegations Investigations of Trump Campaign (VIDEO)
THIS INSANE WITCH HUNT BY SORE LOSER DEMOCRATS AND LIBERALS IS GETTING OLD …
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself over the wild and unsubstantiated conspiracies made up by those on the LEFT of a Trump/Russian connection. Sessions made the announcement at his Thursday afternoon press conference that he would recusing himself from any type of investigation. In an alternate universe that has become the psycho and hate-filled LEFT, Sessions is under fire for holding a meeting with the Russian ambassador in September as head of the Senate Armed Services Committee. In other words Sessions is being targeted by the LEFT for doing his job as a US Senator. It’s an unfortunate surrender. And what did gutless Republicans do? Pile on.
Jeff Sessions denies all allegations
Wasn’t it former president Barack Obama who mocked Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential debates about the Russians and that Romney was making too big a deal about the Russians? I think the exact condescending comment was, “the 1980s are calling, they want their foreign policy back.” Now suddenly the Democrats and the LEFT think the Russians are the old Soviet Union? But its different now, it always is for liberals. This needs to be seen for what it is, nothing more than a partisan witch hunt to destroy a president elected by the American people.
BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN SPEECH, AMAZINGLY DELIVERED AND MADE DEMOCRATS LOOK REALLY, REALLY SMALL … THIS I CAN TELL YOU!!!
Tonight in President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, he called for a “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, historic tax reform for business and the middle class, an increase in military spending by $54 billion, while cutting other agency budgets by the same amount and leave entitlements like Medicare untouched. Trump asked for Republicans and Democrats to work together for the sake of the American people to give the people a real healthcare plan that they are not forced to buy from the government, lower the cost and provide an actually working form of insurance that works before Obamacare implodes. And he called for the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS, a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs.
By contrast, Democrats looked so small tonight as they refused to stand or clap for President Trump’s vision of school choice for blacks and Hispanics, jobs for Americans, or the support of United States citizens who were victims of of illegal immigrant violence. Many in this country, especially Independents are asking themselves just who’s side are you on?
President Trump declared Tuesday that a “new chapter of American greatness is now beginning” as he made economic revival the centerpiece of his first address to Congress – issuing a clarion call to “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program.
He also called on Congress to replace what he called the “imploding ObamaCare disaster,” with legislation that lowers costs and expands access, an ambitious goal for GOP lawmakers still trying to come together on a plan.
The president outlined his agenda in an address to a joint session of Congress that lasted roughly an hour and focused almost exclusively on priorities at home, not abroad. He offered a decidedly upbeat vision for the future of the country that stood in contrast to his at-times foreboding inauguration address.
“Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope,” Trump said.
Trump for the most part traded the contentious and punchy tone of the last few weeks for loftier – some might say more presidential – rhetoric. Declaring “the time for small thinking is over,” Trump appealed to the country to “believe, once more, in America.”
President Donald Trump Says at CPAC … “I’m not Representing the Globe. I’m Representing Your Country,” the United States of America
DONALD TRUMP TELLS CPAC AMERICA FIRST … I’M REPRESENTING THE U.S.A., NOT THE GLOBE!!!
Today at CPAC, President Donald Trump unabashedly stated, I am representing the United States of America. President Trump the following: “We will not answer to donors or lobbyists, or special interests, but we will serve the citizens of the United States of America, believe me. Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or global flag. This is the United States of America that I am representing. I am not representing the globe, I am representing your country.”
President Trump had previously stated, “We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of our country”. Trump continued to say, “I will never apologize for protecting the safety and security of the American people and the security of the American people is number one.”
Isn’t it refreshing to have a president that put’s America first and doesn’t feel the need to apologize for America?
Comments above begin at the 43:55 minute mark of video
The core conviction of our movement is that we are a nation that will put its own citizens first.
For too long we’ve traded away our jobs to other countries, so terrible. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while leaving ours wide open — anybody can come in.
Take a look at what’s happening to our world, folks. And we have to be smart. We have to be smart. We can’t let it happen to us. So let me state this as clearly as I can: We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.
We will not be deterred from this course, and in a matter of days we will be taking brand new action to protect our people and keep America safe. You will see the action. I will never, ever apologize for protecting the safety and security of the American people. I won’t do it. If it means I get bad press, if it means people speak badly of me, it’s okay, it doesn’t bother me.
The security of our people is number one, is number one. Our administration is running with great efficiency, even though I still don’t have my Cabinet approved. Nobody mentions that. Do you know I still have people out there waiting to be approved. And everyone knows they’re going to be approved. It’s just a delay, delay, delay. It’s really sad. It’s really sad. And these are great people. These are some great people.
We will not answer to donors or lobbyists or special interests, but we will serve the citizens of the United States of America, believe me. Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good. It’s very important, but there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing. I’m not representing the globe. I’m representing your country.
There’s one allegiance that unites us all, and that is to America. America. It’s the allegiance to America. No matter our background or income or geography, we’re all citizens of this blessed land, and no matter our color or the blood, color of the blood we bleed, it’s the same red blood of great, great patriots. Remember great patriots. We all salute with pride the same American flag, and we all are equal, totally equal in the eyes of almighty God. We’re equal.
This is what the LEFT and the MSM does not understand, an overwhelming number of Americans that don’t live in California or NYC, believe in all of the above comments made by Donald Trump.
