Trump’s History-Changing Vow to Eradicate ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism’

President Trump first said it during his inaugural address:

We will … unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

The establishment media has been too involved with comparing crowd sizes to take any significant notice, but Trump’s words heralded a change that was momentous — and could make all the difference in our civilizational struggle against the global jihad.

Trump Met with Cheers from CIA Officers When Criticizing the Media

President Donald Trump was met with cheers from Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers on Saturday when he criticized the media’s portrayal of the relationship between him and the agency.

“As you know I have a running war with the media,” Trump said. “They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.”

Trump was immediately met with laughs and cheers from the crowd of roughly 400 people, according to Politico.

The establishment has screwed things up big time

“These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.”

That was my favourite line in U.S. President Donald Trump’s inaugural speech, delivered minutes after he made the oath of office.

It wasn’t a headline grabber. It wasn’t up there with “American carnage,” “totally unstoppable” or his calls for America-first policies.

But what that line did was get to the heart of what ails the Western political world so sorely today and what has caused the institutional rot that is now beginning to be rejected.

ISIS video taunts ‘Crusader’ Trump

ISIS has released a new propaganda video featuring U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump in what appears to be the first time in the group’s ‘official’ propaganda videos.

Set in Kirkuk, Iraq, the video originates from the Islamic State’s main propaganda arm, as opposed to recent propaganda put out by accounts labeled by experts as ‘ISIS-linked,’ ‘pro-ISIS’ or ‘ISIS-inspired.’

The video, entitled “Kirkuk: The punishment for traitors,” opens with a montage of several media outlets followed by an image of Donald Trump, as a voice reads, “The Crusaders of the West.”

Trump To CIA: You’re Off The Leash In War On ISIS

President Donald Trump vowed to give unprecedented backing to the U.S. intelligence community in the war on radical Islam during his first speech as president at CIA headquarters.

Trump reiterated a line from his inaugural address, saying the U.S. should “eradicate radical Islamic terrorism.” He insinuated that the CIA’s full potential was not put to use by the Obama administration in the war against Islamic State. “We haven’t used our real abilities,” he said, and flatly declared, “we have to get rid of ISIS.”

Washington Is Now a Three-Party Town

The two American presidents most alike Donald Trump are Andrew Jackson and Theodore Roosevelt (nationalism, hostility towards concentrations of power—that last one is more apt than you think). Yet if you’re looking for similarities to President Trump’s maiden speech on Friday, you’ll comb through Jackson’s and Roosevelt’s inaugural addresses in vain. Jackson’s are surprisingly delicate statements of political theory, including a pledge to “keep steadily in view the limitations as well as the extent of the Executive power.” Roosevelt’s are more sweeping, but still humble, with a focus on Americans’ “duties to others and duties to ourselves.”

Trump’s inaugural address, in contrast, was replete with litanies of what government owes its people, almost all of which it’s been failing to provide.

Trump! How did this happen?

It happened because you banned super-size sodas. And smoking in parks. And offensive ideas on campus. Because you branded people who oppose gay marriage ‘homophobic’, and people unsure about immigration ‘racist’.

Because you treated owning a gun and never having eaten quinoa as signifiers of fascism. Because you thought correcting people’s attitudes was more important than finding them jobs. Because you turned ‘white man’ from a description into an insult. Because you used slurs like ‘denier’ and ‘dangerous’ against anyone who doesn’t share your eco-pieties.

A Plain and Powerful Inaugural Address

Trump’s vision is constitutional, not Wilsonian.

No one watching Friday’s Inauguration ceremony could miss the contrast between the gracious civility with which the incoming and outgoing presidents treated each other and the utter repudiation President Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address made of Barack Obama’s eight-year reign. You could hear it at the start of the 16-minute speech. Trump thanked the Obamas for their “magnificent” aid throughout the transition. He then pivoted, with a loaded “however,” to how momentous this particular change of chief executives really is. It’s not just a change of administrations or parties, Trump averred. “We are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the American people . . . . What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people,” he said, echoing James Madison in Federalist 51.

Trump Offers Father Down on His Luck $10,000 Check at Inaugural Event

Because that’s exactly the sort of thing Hitler did!

A FedEx courier and former security guard from Illinois was surprised with an invitation to meet with Donald Trump after the President-elect saw a story on the struggling single father. But the special meeting wasn’t the only surprise. The young man was stunned when Trump presented him with a check for $10,000.

Shane Bouvet, a 23-year-old single dad, was featured in a Washington Post story highlighting his visit to D.C. to support Donald Trump’s inauguration.
