President Trump and USA Rescue Thousands of Cruise Ship Passengers The Rest of the World Refused to Help…

There’s a whole lot of headlines about this story, but the one that really deserves to be written is how Team USA and President Trump rescued thousands of passengers and crew members from aboard cruise ships the rest of the world refused. [LINK]

[…] This ends a voyage that began March 5 in Chile and was supposed to finish March 19 in Argentina, but it ran on for days as countries declined to welcome passengers ashore during the coronavirus pandemic. (more)

You are darn right we rescued those international passengers; now ask yourself: why wouldn’t anyone else help them?

You see, this is again another example of how The United States of America is the greatest force for good the world has ever seen.

Despite an entire planet of global elites constantly putting down Team USA while hypocritically holding themselves up as moral arbiters; and despite every ridiculous democrat cocktail party attendee swooning over other nations while putting their own country down; when push comes to shove it’s Team America that comes through.

Every time.

When an earthquake hits Haiti, who goes?  We go….

When a tsunami hits Japan, who goes? We go…

When a hurricane hits the Bahamas, who responds?  We respond…

When fires burn in Australia, who goes?  We go…

When floods ravage India, who goes? We go….

When famine strikes, we mobilize…

International academics, pontificating media and global elites, many within our own country, sit around looking down their noses, criticizing Team USA, while doing nothing on any comparable scale to the global response consistently provided by our nation.

Every time the proverbial shit-hits-the-fan, it’s team USA to the rescue.

When the crisis is so overwhelming that no-one can even fathom where to begin, who do they call?… The United States of America.

Team USA rescuing those cruise ship passengers is no different.

When have you seen the Norwegian Army responding to a Mississippi delta flood?  When was the last time you saw UN blue helmets show up during Hurricane rescue and recovery along the gulf coast?….

When a tornado destroys one of our towns, it’s ordinary Americans that show up to rebuild.  Colorblind, holding hands, keeping faith, providing hope and getting it done.

That’s our USA grit…

That’s our USA spirit….

You’re darned right we rescued thousands of international cruise line passengers the rest of the world denied; and I am proud of President Trump for doing it.

That’s just the way we roll….

To the U.S. corporate media I say: ‘keep on bitchin’, griping and looking for something to complain about’, because to most Americans you get smaller every single day.

    Awesome post Sundance.
    I knew something was up when stoopid reporter asked President Trump about the ship in the daily press conference Q&A. Stoopid reporter looking for a soundbite was all.

    Well stoopid reporter – here’s your soundbite. America to the rescue just because it’s right.
    Are you going to run with it? Nah, didn’t think so.
    Stoopid reporter…

    • Perfect, just perfect. “Stoopid reporter”, repeated again and again. I bow to thee, Good Spirit.

      (Well, I should also put in this little bit: Yesterday I heard on the TV people here in Tennessee, black and white, expressing their sincere gratitude to one and all for unstinting, instinctual help following the recent hurricane, like a family. But that’s just Tennessee — bunch of Hoosiers, if you ask me…hee-hee-hee).

      What you cannot find (in any of the media reports about the situation) the actual planned route. This is important to truly understand Sundance’s point. I had to research it. Here is the original route for the “14 Night South America Cruise sailing on the Coral Princess” departs San Antonio, Chile with a final arrival (disembark) at Buenos Aires, Argentina. This ship was ever intended to dock in the U.S…ever. So, yes – the U.S. stepped up when others would not!

When I attempted to join the Conservative Treehouse community a couple of years ago, it seemed that I was presented with signing up with WordPress. Seems I inadvertently created a blog for myself, though that’s not something I do! I’m not particularly tech savvy; I generally just squeak by. When it seemed that my posts were not going through, I assumed, obviously incorrectly, that it was WordPress issue. Someone informed me otherwise, so I stand corrected. Guess I’ll hang around. I like it here!

            carolweekleylmt, Please don’t assume the inability to “like” or “reply” was something you did wrong. WordPress goes through big bouts of being unable to do whatever has to be done to allow everyone to participate. it feels like censoring, since there were two good years before I had to turn cartwheels and log on and off several times before earning the right to participate. Maybe there are too many of us now, and WordPress strives to be annoying enough to scare us away?

      They generally aren’t registered in the USA, even though many are owned by American companies, because the U.S. government requires that ships registered under the U.S. flag have to be, like, 80% built in the U.S. with union workers and that the ships must be staffed with union workers. That requirement becomes prohibitively expensive, especially for the new mega-ships. There is also a requirement that any cruise ship that sails exclusively in the United States and its territories must be staffed with union workers. This is why even a cruise from L.A. to Hawaii and back will have a stop in Mexico so the cruise is not exclusively within the U.S. There is one cruise line that has a cruise exclusively in the Hawaiian Islands (It might be Norwegian Cruise Lines; not sure.) According to a cruise-oriented magazine I read recently, that cruise – staffed entirely with union workers – has the lowest customer satisfaction ratings of ANY of that companies’ ships. If the union regulations were removed I imagine the American-owned cruise lines would be happy to build their ships here.

      I see that the Ruby Princess that Australia allowed to berth is Registered in Hamilton, Bermuda, but was recently moved to be based in Australia, in 2019. Quite a few of the cruisers have since died in Australian Hospitals.

      I think that other State Goveenments refused entry to other Cruise ships.

    There are those who say that in these last days the great famine portended by the Black Horse of the apocalypse is not for want of ordinary food but for want of truth; food for the soul. If what we’re seeing in the public square now is not a famine of truth and common sense I don’t know what else it could be. It is a shame and a disgrace of God’s Providence that so many of his children are buffaloed and stampeded by the lies of evil men who have wormed their way into positions of earthly power. As the LORD says, “Better for them that a millstone be tied to their neck and they be cast into the sea that to offend one of the LORD’s little ones.”

    Anyway I read the comments from several different publications. Same article, different audiences.

    Almost without exception, the comments coming from the Indian people were positive, generous and caring. I was expecting them to be like “Nah… those Americans can suck it”

    But it’s just the opposite. I’m very impressed with this human attitude. Good people.

    Of course they denied welcome. It would skew their numbers if they could have even handled the few needing hospitalization. And speaking of ‘could have handled hospitalization’, notice the mayor of Miami Dade didn’t even mention overcrowding, full, over capacity, pushed to the limits, overworked, or war zone. Strange, no? BTW, the article also includes the Zaandam and the Rotterdam cruise ships that docked in Port Everglades mentioining “Sharief said the men were over the age of 70 — two had been diagnosed with Covid-19, one suffered a heart attack and another succumbed to a preexisting illness.” When this is all over, CDC will bury an analysis of age deaths and comorbidities and the real causes of death. Until then, they’ll keep the schools, churches and Disneyland closed.

    Sure it was the ‘right thing to do’ but…

    Under ‘full transparency’ how is there not a publically published list telling us how many were on board both ships, the ‘testing’ results of everyone including the crew and the disposition of ALL of them?

    How many were hospitalized or quarantined here stateside, how many were flew out to their home countries, etc., we received only generalities, that were made about American, Canadians and British citizens that were on board.

  19. That IS a perfect example of the greatness and philanthropy of Trump’s America. It demonstrates our EXCEPTIONALISM as a nation AND as a people.

    While others condemn us, and our President for promoting “America First” they smear the concept as meaning “America Only” or “America at the expense of all others.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth. We Americans have been consistently PLUNDERED by other nations who use the greed of OUR corrupt politicians to manipulate a pseudo American zeitgeist riddled with undeserved “US Guilt” that shames is into numerous unfair trade agreements.

    NO MORE!

    America IS exceptional!

    Americans ARE worthy of respect!

    Americans DO deserve the “Level Playing Fields” that Bulldozer Trump is building for us!

    And, as the cruise ship story tells us, this will be good for EVERYONE.
