“I am for free commerce with all nations, political connection with none, and little or no diplomatic establishment. And I am not for linking ourselves by new treaties with the quarrels of Europe, entering that field of slaughter to preserve their balance, or joining in the confederacy of Kings to war against the principles of liberty.” –Thomas Jefferson to Elbridge Gerry, 1799
President Trump’s speech on Thursday, June 1, 2017, triggered the expected and augmented HYSTERIA, not only in the U.S. swamp but also in the worst arena, the international community. The Europeans are unhinged, and with the help of those American wannabes-European decrying the end of the world, saying people will die, the collapse of the nations is imminent, the oceans will rise destroying coastal cities, Trump must be removed, and the merry-go-round continues. The White House posted the following on their website:
Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, and begin negotiations to either re-enter or negotiate an entirely new agreement with more favorable terms for the United States. The decision is a fulfillment of the promise President Trump made to the American people during his campaign. During the address in the Rose Garden at the White House, the President vowed that the U.S. would maintain its position as a world leader in clean energy, while protecting the economy and strengthening the work force.
The Paris Climate Accord cost the U.S. economy nearly $3 trillion in reduced output, over 6 million industrial jobs, and over 3 million manufacturing jobs.
Today’s announcement is yet another example of the President’s commitment to put America and its workers first.
The Paris Accord: Undermines U.S. Competitiveness and Jobs
According to a study by NERA Consulting, meeting the Obama Administration’s requirements in the Paris Accord would cost the U.S. economy nearly $3 trillion over the next several decades.
The Paris Accord: Created a taxpayer funded U.N. climate slush fund
President Obama committed $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund – which is about 30 percent of the initial funding – without authorization from Congress.
The Paris Accord: Was negotiated badly by the Obama Administration
The Obama-negotiated Accord imposes unrealistic targets on the U.S. for reducing our carbon emissions, while giving countries like China a free pass for years to come. Under the Accord, China will actually increase emissions until 2030.
The Paris Accord: By the year 2100, date impact on the climate would be negligible
You can also hear Trump’s speech in its entirety. By using critical thinking or common sense, you will arrive at a sound understanding to guard against the rhetoric and hype of the ill-advised and globalist elite who want more economic productivity and exploitation control.
For decades, the climate scammers have made billions, if not trillions, of dollars with their scare tactics. First, they said the world is going to freeze, but it didn’t happen. Then they switched their story to Global Warming, and it hasn’t happened. The latest is Climate Change, now, who can deny that the climate changes? Remember the four seasons of the year? Yes, the climate does change like it has for millennia. We also have two scientific camps in disagreement in their findings and conclusions of human contribution to the changes in the climate.
Most European governments envy and hate the U.S. for multiple reasons. Never mind that they have been the recipients of American generosity of many lives and capital to rebuild their nations after two World Wars. The Europeans are not alone in wanting to subjugate and control The United States of America; do they want a stronger America? Not until they have another war between them. Most of Europe wants a socialist U.S. and for it to be miserable like they are. Trump is not against science; he just wants a practical way of dealing with the betterment of the environment that enhances the economy. If Europe is open for negotiations, as he stated in his message, the renegotiation option is open. If Europeans are not willing to have new negotiations, Trump said, that’s ok too. The USA has never had a need to be in any climate accord; they have been leading the clean up for decades; the facts speak for themselves. Jefferson was right: “I am for free commerce with all nations, political connection with none, and little or no diplomatic establishment. And I am not for linking ourselves by new treaties with the quarrels of Europe, entering that field of slaughter to preserve their balance.”
Trump campaigned for the forgotten men and women of the nation by promising to restore productivity that creates jobs. Forbes published an article on January 13, 2017, titled “Donald Trump’s Entirely Correct — There Really Are 96M Unemployed Americans.” In part the article says:
It’s wondrous, isn’t it? The manner in which the press is united in shouting at Donald Trump for claiming that there are 96 million Americans who are unemployed. The thing is though he’s right at one level. There really are 96 million Americans without a job. I entirely agree that this isn’t what we normally mean by “unemployment,” which is the state of wanting a job, looking for one, and not being able to find one. Being entirely content to not have a job and thus not be looking for one is different from this, it most certainly is, but it’s still unemployment.
The last presidential election unmasked the media like never before, also the pseudo-intellectuals, Hollywood and most of the millionaires and billionaires that want to shape the storyline of what America should be, not for them but others. The liberal lunatics want us to believe that international agreements are good for us when in reality they are anti-American. Why don’t they give their wealth to the developing nations that are willing to take the money and not care what happens to America’s working class and lead the way by living “eco-green”? We need to be able to discern truth from falsehood, but we will never find it in the progressive worldview.
Considering again what Jefferson understood about foreign affairs, was he right? It is a given fact that for thousands of years, human behavior never changes; it is either good or evil:
“I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war. All their energies are expended in the destruction of the labor, property and lives of their people.” –Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1823
A word of caution to Christians, never bypass the unaltered truth that it is the God of the Bible who controls human events. No person or nation can oppose His divine plan and succeed; if we are not with Him, we are against Him. It is very unwise to oppose Him, isn’t it? His Word reveals that the nations will attain His knowledge and the world is going to transform radically. The apostle Paul wrote two thousand years ago: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.” (Romans 8:18-19) The more Christians develop the mind of Christ in them—the more they will bring cultural and scientific changes to better the nations and the planet.
History is on our side revealing that the God of the Bible, not man, is in control, He sure is and don’t ever doubt it:
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!” Psalm 33:10-12 (ESV)
Let us commit ourselves daily to making not just America great but the world by applying God’s principles in all areas of life and the planet—they work. Let us be vigilant against those who want to rip us off and unmask their misguided ideas, perhaps they too will see the light!
