President Trump National Security Strategy Speech – 2:00pm Livestream…

Today, President Donald Trump is delivering a speech outlining the administrations’ larger national security strategy. The remarks are much anticipated as President Trump is expected to give the general electorate their first understanding of the Trump Doctrine: using economic leverage to achieve national security objectives.

CTH readers have spent the past year discussing examples of how President Trump uses economic leverage as the core element of his geopolitical strategy. However, it is not discussed, nor has it been accepted/recognized, by MSM or the broader electorate.

The speech is anticipated to begin at 2:00pm EST:

    Although his theme was America first, I kept thinking: there is the leader of the entire world.

      He absolutely does grow on you, doesn’t he? I liked him from the start, although I thought he was just doing a little PR and putting a little charisma and fun in an otherwise dull campaign. But since the moment he started getting serious, it’s just gotten better and better. Patriotism, jobs, America first, no entangling alliances, no party dependence, Christmas, no muslim outreach, pulling out of the U.N., fair trade — what more could a 20th century American, who grew up when America was great, and hated what Obama did to us with a passion, ask for?

        I agree and celebrate everything you wrote, vladdy. But I have to add that it wasn’t just Obama who did this. Think of Hillary selling 20% of all the uranium we produce forever to Russia, or the way W Bush and his cronies emptied our treasury and dealt war and misery in the Middle East. Nobody touched the poppy fields though – have you noticed? Those are just the names of presidents, but there have been a ton of politicians who sold America to the highest briber for decades.

        There is another way to look at this Tax bill. It sets in motion tax reform, and then we can expect the President to whittle away at the issues within. Until he gets a bill on his desk his hands are tied. This is only a start, not the end all. Expect adjustments in the future.

          Yep! It’s rather dumbfounding that there is sooo little recognition that the initiation of this process must start with bill reconciliation. There is NOT a veto proof majority in the Senate therefore, no tax bills from scratch are possible. If he can get some economic momentum going into the midterms, it may help in picking up seats. Then more reform becomes possible. MAGA!

        They’re not quick on the uptake. It’s $250B over 10 years. After the current reform gets passed, hopefully the president will seal that loophole in a standalone bill. He could get a bunch of Dems to agree and then shame Paul RINO and the Turtle into moving it along. He could also agitate for any non-Wall-Street-beholden Republicans to sign a discharge order to push a standalone repeal of the carried-interest loophole.

    • No matter what the Congressional Swamp Critters do, President Trump will convert it to leverage.

      Consider their tune that we have to “Pay for Tax Reductions”.

      Cool: President Trump will demand that Congress return every dollar of “WINDFALL TAXES” [leveraging their past bogey man “Windfall Profits”], that exceed the CBO PROJECTIONS [insidiously static to ignore our dynamically-accelerating GDP Growth Rate], by returning them in PERMANENT TAX REDUCTIONS to the American Citizens WHO PAID TAXES.

      Bonus: Announce that for those who didn’t pay taxes, Congress can compensate them by ENDING the Waste, Fraud and Abuse of the WELFARE STATE [passing President Trump’s Welfare Reform], CUTTING CORPORATE TAXES for job-generators to 15% and CUTTING GOVERNMENT SPENDING as he proposed they do in 2017.

        100% agreed.

        And the more successful he is — especially so FAST and with opposition from his own pathetic Con-Con party — the more obvious it becomes that our past presidents were either:

        A) incompetent beyond words… mentally and morally and lawfully derelict

        or

        B) corrupt beyond words… treasonous and involved in a global organized crime racket which raped and pillaged and gutted the United States of America

        That is what is becoming clear to anyone with eyes to see.

        And the traitorous administrations who came before KNOW it.

          You are so right Scott467. President Trump’s entire campaign gave me a clue about the Booshes (already had a clue about form D Prez), but P45’s actually days in office have made in shockingly clear. It’s A&B — far beyond what we will ever truly know. None of them were worthy to serve in the highest office in this land. The only good that came out of it is Donald J. Trump finally ran for the office himself. I thank God I lived to see his presidency. We must pray for his health, stamina, protection.

    Did he give this speech at a DNC convention?

    They RELUCTANTLY applauded each point, and even then, it was just the applause of those who belatedly realize that they were supposed to clap.

    People should have been cheering and jumping out of their seats.

    Instead, this sounded like an audience from the Left coast!

    It’s pathetic.

    This is exactly where President George Bush, Sr. should have focused when he took over from President Reagan’s great beginning. Now, of course, no one can do this kind of America-first national policy the way our President Trump can do it. He his brilliant, disciplined, and a patriot in addition to getting his experience in business. However, even a small continuation of Reagan’s policies would have put us leaps and bounds ahead of where we are now — and would have kept out the “communists” and kept the down the global elitists.

    MAGA, Mr. President, in every department.

      Reagan listened to advisers when he selected Bush. He wanted Paul Laxalt. Reagan was prone to take bad advice, and had a problem identifying skullduggery and hidden motives in the GOPe. Imagine if Reagan had selected a young, true conservative and not the decadent fool Bush. A shame.

    Steven Miller – February 23, 2016 “The first is that a nation without borders is not a nation.”
    “The first is that a nation without borders is not a nation. You’ve heard [Trump] say many times in many interviews either we’re a country or we’re not. It’s that simple. We’re either a country or we’re not. Similarly, the second principle is a nation without walls is not a nation, which is an extension of the first principle, but in other words. If you have laws, you enforce them,” he said.
    “The last principle of the three is that a nation that does not serve its citizens is not a nation, which is to say that the social contract of the country is that the interest group that is served is not special interests, or lobbyists, or transnational corporations, or citizens of other countries. It is the citizens of this country, the United States,” he added.
    According to Miller, the last point should be something subscribed to by most politicians, but instead “our immigration system and policies have catered to everyone but American citizens,” particularly when it comes to illegal immigration.”

    HDGator sayz —- No border…no country, no country…no citizens…, no citizens…no constitution, no constitution… no country, no country… no borders.

      Also one should not and cannot pick and choose the laws they want to obey.
      This is what the Illegals are doing, and many of the Muslims. Too many immigrants, refugees & Illegals are not coming here because they like the American way, but because they want to change the American way. I would never move to some other country that I did not like their ways & laws, probably wouldn’t even visit them either.
      These people need to go home, even the DACAers. Since the DACA supporters brag about DACAers being educated, well employed and in their late 20s & 30s, I wonder why very very few DACAers have started their American Citizenship process.

    Oh for Pete’s sake, Mark Levin is all in on the Trump train tonite. I was yelling at my radio that famous movie line “welcome to the party pal”!!!!!! Mark devoted his first hour tonite about Trump’s speech. He loved the speech. He was telling his audience that he thinks our Presence dent has gotten more conservative while in office

    This is where Mark shows he is an idiot. WE know President Trump has not changed. Mark was actually calling out the never trumpers to get on board. I gu as Mark did not listen well during the campaign. He was gushing about the first year accomplishments in spite of no help from Congress or the media.

    This is his last show for the year.

      I poste the following a while ago in the wrong section (the train article by mistake). Here’s my take:

      I have been listening to Mark Levin tonight. I understand how people feel about Mark and some here have seen some of my posts here that have been vehemently against Mark. So my purpose of posting is NOT to sell anyone here on Mark, but to inform because I know people here do not listen to him in particular among the many talk shows.

      The past hour Mark has been ABSOLUTELY GUSHING 100% positive regardingPOTUS. Mark is actually trying to SELL POTUS to his listeners.

      So my point is this: I believe that Trump has won over Levin, so, Levin will bring additional voters to Trump next election. Ted is not dumb enough to run against Trump next term so do not worry about Levin as far as that goes.

She usually just asks me what is going and doesn’t listen. So glad she did listen for this speech.
