    Trump rejects globalism at UN...unapologetically promoted his “America First” agenda.

    Trump challenges UN, boasting of America’s go-it-alone might

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — President Donald Trump poured scorn on the “ideology of globalism” and heaped praise on his own administration’s achievements Tuesday in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly that drew headshakes and even mocking laughter from his audience of fellow world leaders.
    “The U.S. will not tell you how to live and work or worship,” Trump said as he unapologetically promoted his “America First” agenda. “We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.”
    Speaking in triumphal terms, Trump approached his address to the world body as something of an annual report to the world on his country’s progress since his inauguration. He showcased strong economic numbers, declared that the U.S. military is “more powerful than it has ever been before” and crowed that in “less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
    Just sentences into the president’s remarks, the audience began to chuckle and some leaders broke into outright laughter, suggesting the one-time reality television star’s puffery is as familiar abroad as it is at home. Trump appeared briefly flustered, then smiled and said it was not the reaction he expected “but that’s all right.”

    Later he brushed off the episode, telling reporters, “Oh it was great. Well, that was meant to get some laughter so it was great.”
    The leaders’ spontaneous response to Trump’s address only reinforced the American president’s isolation among allies and foes alike, as his nationalistic policies have created rifts with erstwhile partners and cast doubt in some circles about the reliability of American commitments around the world.
    Barely an hour before he spoke, in fact, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres declared to the assembly that global cooperation is the world’s best hope and “multilateralism is under fire precisely when we need it most.”
    Since taking office, Trump has removed the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, promoted protectionist tariffs and questioned the value of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and other alliances in furtherance of what he termed on Tuesday a strategy of “principled realism.”
    To that end, Trump flaunted his embrace of negotiations with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un just a year after he had warned of raining down “total destruction” on a leader he branded “Little Rocket Man.” As Trump praised Kim’s “courage” on Tuesday, he unloaded harsh rhetoric on nuclear-aspirant Iran as a persistent malign influence across the Middle East.
    “We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues,” said Trump. The president has removed the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, citing the country’s destabilizing actions throughout the region and support for terrorist groups like Hezbollah, and he accused its leaders on Tuesday of sowing “chaos, death and destruction.”
    His national security adviser, John Bolton, was to go even further in a speech Tuesday, issuing a dire warning to Iran: “If you cross us, our allies or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay,” Bolton said, according to prepared remarks released by the White House.
    In addition to his keynote speech, Trump is to chair a meeting of the U.N. Security Council about nuclear proliferation on Wednesday. His four days of choreographed foreign affairs were designed to stand in contrast to a presidency sometimes defined by disorder, but they were quickly overshadowed by domestic political crises.

    The fate of his second Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was in fresh doubt after a second allegation of sexual misconduct, which Kavanaugh denies. Kavanaugh and his first accuser testify to Congress on Thursday.
    Drama also swirls around the job security of Trump’s deputy attorney general. Rod Rosenstein was reported last week to have floated the idea of secretly recording the president last year and to have raised the idea of using the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. He will meet with Trump at the White House, also on Thursday.
    At the U.N., Trump seized his opportunity to assert American independence from the international body. He showcased his decisions to engage with the erstwhile pariah North Korea, remove the U.S. from the international Iran nuclear accord and object to U.N. programs he believes are contrary to American interests.
    “We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism,” Trump said.
    He referenced a list of U.N. bodies, from the International Criminal Court to the Human Rights Council, that his administration is working to undermine.
    “America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control and domination,” Trump declared. His denunciations of globalism drew murmurs from other members of the organization that stands as the very embodiment of the notion.
    Shortly before he spoke, in fact, U.N. Secretary-General Guterres had defended international cooperation as the only way to tackle the challenges and threats of increasingly chaotic times.
    “Democratic principles are under siege,” Guterres said. “The world is more connected, yet societies are becoming more fragmented. Challenges are growing outward, while many people are turning inward.”
    On other tense subjects, Trump’s criticism of Germany’s pursuit of a direct energy pipeline from Russia drew a dismissive headshake from a member of the U.S. ally’s delegation, and his mention of the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar all in one breath was received with stone-faced expressions by Saudi officials. The UAE and Saudi Arabia have been boycotting Doha since last year as part of a dispute tearing apart the typically clubby Gulf Arab nations.
    The laughter in the first moments of Trump’s address evoked a campaign line Trump frequently deployed against his predecessor Barack Obama — who embraced international engagement — suggesting that due to weak American leadership, “the world is laughing at us.”
    In 2014, Trump tweeted “We need a President who isn’t a laughingstock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!”
    Appearances on the global stage tend to elevate the stature of presidents both abroad and at home. But even before his arrival for the annual gathering of world leaders and diplomats, the desired image was being eclipsed as Trump was forced to confront the salacious and embarrassing in the controversies over Rosenstein and Kavanaugh.
    With cable news chyrons flashing breathless updates about both Beltway dramas, news of Trump’s foreign policy moves from the U.N., led by a new trade deal with South Korea, struggled to break through.

    Malloch: Trump Pounds the UN Again…

    September 25, 2018, 8:34 am by Jim Hoft 72 Comments

    Guest post by Ted Malloch author of The Plot to Destroy Trump

    President Trump is expected to speak to the United Nations Tuesday morning.

    President Trump joins other world leaders in New York this week for the opening of the United Nations General Assembly session. He will also chair a Security Council meeting on Iran, as the US is president of the council this year.

    Everyone expects another round of confrontation. Trump will make his views on Iran, trade, North Korea and America First policies the thrust of his remarks.
    Other world leaders generally stand in awe but detest him and the United States, with few exceptions.

    Does it matter?
    In his book Tower of Babble, a former UN ambassador accused the United Nations of fueling global chaos because of its moral relativism.
    Well, really how bad is the UN?
    Donald Trump has said he will send a message to the organization and it is not going to be one they want to hear or they will swallow well. He said in a campaign speech, “The United Nations is not a friend of democracy. It’s not a friend to freedom.”
    Only 75 of the 193 members are real democracies, according to Freedom House, who rank such things. They are in for a shock under President Trump, who wants to cut our payments (25% of the whole budget) and drop out of much of what parades as rampant internationalism—and is truly a movement toward one world government.
    He has already removed the US from UNESCO, reinstituted the Mexico City doctrine on not funding abortions or population control and cut the US contribution to UNRWA the Palestinian refugee debacle.
    Make no mistake, the ideology of the UN is globalism and it has not worked.
    Trump knows this.
    With 17 specialized agencies, 14 funds, a Secretariat of 18 departments, and over 40,000 over-paid employees, a budget of $5.4 billion a year, peacekeeping missions at $9 billion a year, another $28 billion a year for disaster and development, the UN is by any measure an utter and complete catastrophe.
    Most of us have heard about the UN Population Fund that pays for forced abortions and sterilization but few know of the UN’s far-reaching tentacles, let alone its Human Rights Commission that is anti-human rights. The members on that Commission include wonderful and open states like: Algeria, Bolivia, Congo, Cuba, Maldives, Qatar, Russia, Venezuela, and Viet Nam.
    Now, I know this up close and personal because during part of the Reagan administration I had the top UN job in Europe.
    The fish stinks.
    Believe me, the UN is a vast and highly politicized bureaucracy with a non-democratic character that is the most ineffective of all international organizations.
    In all honesty, it has had very few real successes since the days of
    U Thant.
    The UN has missed just about every opportunity given to it and especially the more recent ones aimed at reforming itself. It can’t stop ethnic cleansing or genocide and certainly has zero effect on Islamic jihadism. It can’t glue together failed states, like Syria, or stop bloody wars in places from Rwanda to Sri Lanka.
    All attempts to restructure its leadership, finances, infrastructure and the system itself, have had little to no effect.
    We need to give up.
    On the other hand, it has done everything in its power, flying in our face, to establish a Palestinian state in spite of the well-founded allegations of anti-Semitism. Resolution # 3379 is a case in point, equating Zionism with racism.
    And when it comes to scandals, the UN tops the all-time worst list.
    It’s Oil for Food fiasco, (watch the movie: Backstabbing for Beginners) many peacekeeping atrocities, and child sexual abuse scandals, to name but a prominent few, have lead to a near total lack of accountability.
    When I was in the UN many people were on the take and Mr. 10%, in the form of kickbacks, was all over the institution.
    One fact is certain: corruption abounds.
    So, more than 70 years on and about half a trillion dollars later, Trump is right to ask: for what?
    The UN is bloated, undemocratic, expensive, fragmented and produces few tangible results beyond more platitudes and unattainable leftwing goals. It is a sinecure for aging diplomats and a dumping ground for cronies. And its permanent employees after five years get grandiose tax free salaries, free education, duty free alcohol, cigarettes, housing and petrol. You’d love such a gig, right?
    All the audits of the organization turn up the same evidence but nothing comes of them. Dag Hammarskjold, the second UN Secretary General, once remarked about the UN, it was created not to lead mankind to heaven but to save humanity from hell.”
    Trump needs to ask if this is actually true? Or, is the UN instead, a kind of hell on earth? Is it a drag on world peace and does it resist all suggestions of reform because of its entrenched elites and do-nothing, high-minded, globalist civil servants?
    One establishment school of thought keeps saying, if you didn’t have the UN, you’d have to invent it.
    Trump should take up the offer and pronounce the 1945 folly, dead on his arrival in New York this week. Read it its last rites and build a new, vibrant Council of Democracies, more suited to the 21st century.
    This bipartisan idea, which was actually backed by the late Senator McCain, among others, suggesting a league of only democratic member states that met certain requirements, has its philosophical basis in Kant’s notion of ‘perpetual peace. ‘
    Autocracies would be excluded and the new body could provide a very modest multilateral vehicle and end the nonsensical Security Council veto in instances as far ranging as Sudan’s Darfur, North Korea, or Burma.
    Controversial former US ambassador, John Bolton, now Trump’s National Security Advisor, was absolutely right when he said, “Quasi-religious faith in engagement and the UN has run into empirical reality,” we should, “become more cognizant of that organization’s moral and political limitations.”
    Trump should listen to Bolton not his unfaithful, Never Trumper Ambassador, Nikki Haley, who likes her expensive curtains and title too much.
    In truth Bolton, not known for his diplomatic demeanor, was being too polite.
    Trump should sever the chord and stop paying for an anti-American diatribe that does not fulfill its original mission. That tower on East 42th Street in New York City should be put out of business and could be turned into a new Trump edifice with a good water view.

    We need to boot them OFF our soil. They can go set up shop somewhere else. They are a chokehold on the World moving forward in peace and prosperity and cause nothing but destruction!

    No mass illegal immigration...send them all back.

    They can build America on their own damn soil.

    No money, no aid, NO oatmeal!
