Silence is consent. As the people of Iran cry out for freedom once again, former President Barack Hussein Obama continues to support the oppressive Iranian dictatorship. Pathetic, though not surprising. During his presidency, Obama remained silent as scores of Iranian protestors were murdered while speaking out against the brutal regime in power. Now, his minions are complaining about President Donald J. Trump reaching out to those seeking freedom. This design is available on a variety of product types in my gallery at Redbubble.

The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations and we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.

At the UN we’re always asked to do more & give more. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American people, about where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thursday there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names.

Today, President Donald Trump spoke at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, effectively lambasting state sponsor of terror Iran –
The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos. The longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are, in fact, its own people.
Rather than use its resources to improve Iranian lives, its oil profits go to fund Hezbollah and other terrorists that kill innocent Muslims and attack their peaceful Arab and Israeli neighbors. This wealth, which rightly belongs to Iran’s people, also goes to shore up Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship, fuel Yemen’s civil war, and undermine peace throughout the entire Middle East.
We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles, and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program. The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it — believe me.
PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP
President Trump spoke strongly today in New York at the United Nations General Assembly, singling out North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un:
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully, this will not be necessary.
PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP
…and reaction was swift!
Fox News: A “shameful” abstention by the U.S. in a United Nations vote Friday allowed passage of a resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.
Ben Shapiro: With Obama’s silent urging and acquiescence, the United Nations passed a resolution essentially declaring the holiest spot in Judaism, the Temple Mount, sovereign Muslim territory, and determining that all Jews living outside of pre-1967 lines are illegal residents on sovereign Muslim territory. Obama did this on behalf of a unity government comprised of three terrorist groups – Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Palestinian Authority – and to the cheers of terror-sponsors like Iran.
Mark Levin: It appears anti-Semite Obama is working with the extremist Palestinians, and using the Israel-hating UN, to undermine our ally Israel. Obama’s a disgrace. And so is anyone in his administration who participated in this. Obama’s gone in less than a month but is obsessed with doing as much damage as he possibly can. Freedom-loving people all over the world have suffered from this failed, pathetic president, including in our own country.
President-elect Donald J. Trump: As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.
Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC): If the United Nations moves forward with the ill-conceived resolution, I will work to form a bipartisan coalition to suspend or significantly reduce United States assistance to the United Nations. In addition, any nation which backs this resolution and receives assistance from the United States will put that assistance in jeopardy.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX): I look forward to working with Sen. Graham, and with the incoming Administration of President-elect Trump, to significantly reduce or even eliminate U.S. funding of the United Nations, and also to seriously reconsider financial support for the nations that supported this resolution. For those who have put your name to this despicable attack on Israel, you did so with full knowledge of the consequences of your actions.
The United Nations is a power-grabbing, socialist organization seeking to impose itself as a governing body within the United States of America. It’s a tool for radicals aiming to destroy our capitalist economy, and a deluded mouthpiece spewing anti-Israel sentiment. The time to defund the United Nations is now! Enjoy this bumper sticker.
