      We often create products (can be a program or institution too) that begin with really good ideas and visions , then get hijacked by those whose goal is often to “use” that very product for gain in power , $$$, or vehicle for evil. Can that rotten part ever be surgically removed to save all that is healthy ? Our president is willing to try in EVERY area.

      Refreshing to hear Secretary-General’s conspiracy theory.

      Our president looked great in this setting , as he does when he travels the globe. Absent of the toxic MSM/Uniparty urchins.

        I’ve worked for the UN as a consultant. It is nothing more than a huge racketeering organization that spends money on friviolus activities that only benefit the bureaucrats who make outrageous salaries and benefits befitting a king. The US gains little from membership and the whole enterprise is a huge money pit. We should get out.

          I haven’t worked there and know the same thing. He may as well been speaking to a room full of bricks.

          In effect he told them their business plan, which has made these plutocrats & their reps, wealthy by sponging up aid to change to another plan that would help the pee-ons. Good luck with that.

          US troops arrived to help in rescue/recovery efforts w/i 24 hours, were working tirelessly and then sleeping on the humid open-air tarmac before waking to face each next day of salvage labor. Eventually UN representatives showed up eons later, horrified to discover that their usual 5-star hotels were unavailable, so they requested that the US Navy urgently revamp the nearest aircraft carrier into a lodging worthy of a resort palace w/ gourmet chefs etc.

          Admiral told the UN twerps to go pound sand.

What did we vote for? Uncle Sucker is going to let 800,000 DACA illegals stay here? Ouch. Talk about deja vu. And yes, I know in advance that my post will be unwelcome, but someone has to say it. Trust Trump, but for heaven’s sake, verify!

        We Americans end up paying for all kinds of things that if the UN did their jobs, wouldn’t have become the costly problems they are.
        I’d rather give the money to a functional UN and have them work to prevent “humanitarian crises” like the Syrian refugees, than to have the people suffer and spend the money trying to mop up.

        You’re perceptive….. it is un-welcomed – We verified him prior to our vote cast.. we also verified crooked hillary and made the wisest choice. You can grow weary.. but the rest of us will rely on what we know to be true with Trump and we’ll be #MAGA Strong and remember that if we didn’t hear it directly from him – we didn’t hear it. and as such.. he has said
        1. no daca deal has been made
        2. No chain migration – ever
        3. No Amnesty – ever
        4. The dems put out a statement saying there was no daca deal. (Media- MIA)

        What is happening is two fold 1. Trump is demonstrating the Art of the Deal and 2. a ton of gas lighting is going on to divide trump supporters and it is being done by both parties. and a few GOPe Shills like Ann Coulter, Breitbart and other outlets.

        Now i want you weak kneed trump supporters and libs that show up here to think about why trump would of tweeted what he tweeted at the start of this about “do you really want too”…. it was posed as a question…. he was seeking your voices to be heard on this issue – he’s taken heat for it.. he knew he would but in the end OUR VOICES WILL BE THE INFLUENCE IN HIS NEGOTIATION , IT WILL BE THE STRENGTH BEHIND HIS DECISION.

        But I digress…. most everyone has missed this “Trap” he set for both the GOPe and the Democrats.

      • Someone has to say that? Why?

        He has not backed on the wall, it is CONGRESS…..He has not backed on illegal immigration–yes they have fought him on this, but even through all that, illegal immigration is down over 70%…..He has not backed in his dislike of the U.N. He has, in fact, exhibited an attitude of reform–become functional and useful to the world, or lose our money.

        Finally DACA is very complicated. I am a conservative, but a compassionate conservative.

        Is it really fair to punish a child for the crimes of their parents? These kids are Americans, they just don’t have the piece pf paper to show it. America is home, they know absolutely nothing about other countries, and they are for the most part, job holding, military serving, educated, English speaking–upright Americans. I do not want to see these kids deported.

        PTrump has not changed, he understands that negotiation is the key to governing and remember his closing song, you can’t always get what you want…..

        I stand behind my President 110%….. Are there really people out there who thought one man could bring all of the major reforms that he promised he would work toward in only 8 months?

        Really?

          Your description of DACA people sounds as if it was ripped from the latest set of MSM talking points.

              I’ll just leave you a bit of reading so you can be better informed on what constitutes DACA Children:
              “While DACA recipients were illegally brought to the United States by their parents when they were children, the minimum age to apply for the program is 15 years old. In fact, the majority of the applicants were over the age of 20 based on 2014 data from the US government. Some have estimated that the average age of dreamers is 25 or 26 years old–hardly children.”
              http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/05/cnn-and-msnbc-claim-daca-recipients-are-children-video/

              And then you can hustle over to this tidbit:
              “With all the hype surrounding President Trump’s decision to end DACA, it’s important to remember a 2013 report from Judicial Watch revealing that under Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), background checks were scrapped for those applying to be covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

              Documents from 2012 obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request show that memos were circulated about circumventing extensive background checks for those applying for DACA protection. For instance, memos from September 14 ordered the National Benefits Center (NBC) to provide “lean and lite” background checks to DACA applicants without a specified end date to stop the practice. Another email thread showed that DACA applicants couldn’t be denied protection if they were unable to produce some form of identification.”

    This whole thing was hilarious. The whole meeting is about signing a piece of paper with no penalties or repercussions, and 73 member countries didn’t sign it.

    President Trump used his speech as an opportunity to drop bombs on the UN, saying over and over just how ineffective and corrupt the UN is…

    The UN guy says “what keeps me up at night? Red Tape.”

    I’m thinking what REALLY keeps him up at night is the idea of MAD DOG MATTIS bombing the s**T out of North Korea, or Donald Trump completely kneecapping China either way.

        Exactly! For most of the pre nomination campaign I kept praying for the best strong leader to emerge, and I DEFINITELY did not see Donald Trump as that man. I never liked the Playboy Billionaire act with all the blonde trophy wives.

        But when I prayed I kept hearing the words in my head “imperfect vessel” and when I would contemplate Trump during the debates and so forth, again with the “imperfect vessel.” I knew what that meant, but I mean this is hardly an expression in my daily use. Ultimately I was led to review numerous examples in Scripture, and I finally got it.

        I finally understood that this was God’s choice for this job at this time, and that he didn’t need to be perfect. He just needed to seek and do God’s will. I can’t thank God enough for answering our prayers.

          Sylvia, my Biblical gift is discernment. I have had my eye on Trump since 2011. I understood 2012 was not the year. However I was totally all in since he announced in June 2015. I have to admit I was very surprised when the MSM failed to take him out after his announcement speech calling out the illegals. When he survived those first few days, I knew we had our next President. I still don’t understand why the left was so surprised Hillary lost. To me, it was a given.

          Sylvia I had a similar experience. I kept praying and then kaboom before I had heard of TCTH or any other website to guide me, not even have heard of Mark Taylor until months later, God spoke directly to my heart, it was like an epiphany. Suddenly I knew DJT was going to win, and that God had been preparing this man for such a time as this. I got very excited and told my husband that Donald J Trump was going to win the nomination and beat Hillary. You couldn’t shut me up, I was so convinced and excited. This was in the spring of 2016.

          My family thought I was nuts but I kept at them, finally convincing them why he was going to beat the snot out of old Hillary and to vote for him. My daughter remained skeptical that right up until he won, ha!!!! That’ll teach her to believe her mama. I shall never forget the moment I knew. I had nothing to base it on other than God told me so. Later I found this treasure of a place, TCTH, and then discovered Mark Taylors Trump prophecies. Having Donald J Trump in my corner, our corner, is a miracle that keeps on getting better each day as we MAGA onward.

    These international spotlights are very important for reinforcing the Trump world view. Of course it’s as much about optics and image, but to have an American President go into the international ‘safe space’ and explicitly expose the endemic charade is big.

    It’s more than rhetoric against one or more countries. He has coyly pulled back the curtain a little bit, revealing how the operation itself is corrupt and ineffective.

    When I was younger and more idealistic I toured the U.N. and listened to the lectures and self promotion about how great the institution was. But with the rabid polarization and hatred spewing after the six day Israel/Arab war, my eyes were fully opened. Since then all I’ve seen has made me even more cynical.

    At some point the U.N. has to really reconstruct itself or disband. And get off American soil and stop abusing diplomatic privilege. So hypocritical for all these American hating diplomats who live lives of luxury and privilege in New York with no consequences for personal behavior.

    And by the way Nikki Haley is doing a commendable job in delicate circumstances.

    I think our President put the entire UN on notice with his visit and his words. He ABSOLUTELY expects change. You can tell that the Secretary General understood our President’s expectations clearly. Every single word out of his mouth was towards our President. The fact he admitted that Bureaucracy keeps him up at night tells me that his plan is to “Drain the UN”. He also is telling the rest of the Morons that if we lose the “Cash Cow”, we can pack our bags and head to Siberia.

    Nikki Halley reminded me of kids that have their parent come to speak to their class. She seemed like a 7 year old that had her dad come in and sit right by her side. Mrs. Rubio has really impressed me. However, I won’t ever let down my guard when it comes to her.

    In recent decades, the UN has become an apologist for Islam, ignoring Islam’s human rights abuses and pretend victimhood, while castigating Israel.

    UN troops must also be greatly populated with Islamists because of their reputation for r4pe, assault and predation upon the people they pretend to protect.

    UN has become an enemy of the US State, working against US sovereignty and security.

    The UN wants to spread Islamists by open borders and massive immigration of faux refugees into Western countries and has castigated the US for attempting to stop illegals, limit and vet immigrants.

    It’s time for the UN to reform or remove itself from the USA. Our President has pretty much told the UN exactly that.

    Big U.N. problem: Lack of coordination. The Right-hand doesn’t know what the Left-hand is doing resulting in loads of wasted money.

    A good example would be Haiti reconstruction. Building contractors not knowing the vocation of a building. So, they build it with U.N. money, not knowing its purpose will be for office use. Electricians put in the wiring and sockets for a residential unit. When work is complete, it must be dismantled because of insufficient/inadequate electrical outlets.

    It’s difficult to believe such errors would be accidental.

    In recent history, “reform” has been typically used [by communists] as a ruse to usurpation. The idea is to lead a policy of betterment but in fact work a deception over the populous to attain other nefarious goals in secrete. Goals are never stated to the people but are fluid and amorphous. Deception is based on ‘assumption’ and therein lies deceptions’ success.
    So this one here at the UN is a jaw-dropper for me. The word “reform” was used with its intended meaning. Specific errors and abuses that need to be improved, corrected or removed were stated goals.
    Think for a moment that it is possible that UN reforms are realized and corruption is removed…this positioning could suggest a rise of the UN (body of global representation) at the diminution of the EU (body of globalism).

I lost all respect for this organization years ago and I don’t think my respect will ever be back so I would love to see them gone asap. What can they do anyway if the US just tells them to get lost? Raise the rent really high on the property or something, if they are paying any. Maybe that will make them get out of here.
