President Trump’s speech resonates in my heart. It is so sad that enough Americans voted for Obama the second time that a slogan, “Make America Great Again”, would be necessary.
Despite all those who would disagree with me… I just have a couple things to say about it, then let’s take a look at what’s going on in Miami right now!
Obama’s legacy is gone, Hillary is still a loser, the Paris accord is dead, police lives matter again, the wall is going up, the ban on Cuba is back, Steve Bannon is still assisting, and dear liberals, we get the privilege of enjoying another day of being under your president, Donald. J. Trump.
Now take a look at what Trump is doing in Miami!
In Miami, the heart of America’s Cuban exile community, President Donald Trump sounded the death knell of predecessor Barack Obama’s “normalization” policy towards Cuba, vowing,” we will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer.”
Opening with a recognition of recent victims of leftist violence – U.S. citizen Otto Warmbier, recently released by Cuba ally North Korea, and Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) – Trump called for the audience to pray for them and all the American and Cuban people. He then listed some of the Cuban dissidents present for his speech in Florida, including Jorge Luis García Pérez (Antúnez), who suffered 17 years in prison for objecting to communism, and Cary Roque, a dissident who Trump allowed to deliver a few short words.
Trump also took a moment to acknowledge two dissidents not present in Miami – José Daniel Ferrer of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) and Berta Soler of the Ladies in White – who were banned from traveling to the event by the communist regime. The president honored the “great people” who fought at Bay of Pigs, the 2506 Brigade veterans present at the event, and the “children of Operation Peter Pan.”
“We want to thank you all for being a voice for the voiceless,” Trump concluded. “The exiles and dissidents here today have witnessed communism destroy a nation, just as communism has destroyed every nation where it has ever been tried.”
Trump listed those crimes in detail. “You look at what happened and what communism has done,” he listed. “Believers persecuted for preaching the word of God, you watch the Women in White – bruised, bloodied, and captured on their way from Mass, you have heard the chilling cries of loved ones or the cracks of firing squads piercing through the ocean breeze — not a good sound.”
“This is the simple truth of the Castro regime: my administration will not hide from it, excuse it, or glamorize it, and we will never, ever be blind to it. We know what is going on and we remember what happened,” Trump promised.
“Last year, I promised to be a voice against repression. You went out and you voted, and here I am,” the president told the audience. “Now that I am president, America will expose the crimes of the Castro regime… now we hold the cards.”
Those cards, the president promised, would be used to pressure a regime that “harbors cop killers, hijackers, and terrorists,” and has “shipped arms to North Korea and fueled chaos in Venezuela.”
Trump’s new policy, signed shortly after the speech, would “enforce the ban on tourism, enforce the embargo… take concrete steps that ensure investments float directly to the people so they can open private businesses and begin to build their country’s future,” according to the president.
The new policies, Trump continued, would require Cuba to “put an end to the abuse of dissidents, release the political prisoners, stop jailing innocent people, open yourselves to political and economic freedoms, return the fugitives from American justice, including the return of the cop killer Joanne Chesimard” before America would be open to a deal with them.
Since the content of Obama’s policies sucked in almost every case, yes, it didn’t take long to realize that if Obama supported a policy, it was probably something rooted in redistribution, harming economic growth, a sop to his parasitic base, or degrading this nation.
But then, that’s what you get from an un-American, one world, collectivist know-nothing. Now we have a President who is able to get through all the smokescreens to see the truth, and where the real victims lie. Unafraid of what he has to do about it, because he knows it’s the right thing to do. No matter the odds, when you know you’re doing the right thing…nothing else matters.
That’s integrity. An attribute that Obama knows nothing about.
