Golden State Times Link:

Going to be a busy day, folks. QTree will add info as it becomes available. God Bless our Troops and love to all.

Golden State Times does not have a live feed link up for the President’s Address. Yet, here is his presser from yesterday with the Greek PM.

Remember, there is a MAGA/KAG rally in Toledo, Ohio tomorrow.

Transcript:

THE PRESIDENT: As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.

Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you: The American people should be extremely grateful and happy no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.

Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.

No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.

For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.

Last week, we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives. At my direction, the United States military eliminated the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As the head of the Quds Force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities.

He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah, launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of U.S. troops, including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims.

Soleimani directed the recent attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq that badly wounded four service members and killed one American, and he orchestrated the violent assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.

Soleimani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago. By removing Soleimani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people.

As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.

In recent months alone, Iran has seized ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia, and shot down two U.S. drones.

Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.” In fact, they chanted “death to America” the day the agreement was signed.

Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reins on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran.

The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway, and gives Iran a clear and quick path to nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.

They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal -– or JCPOA –- and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper, and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential. Iran can be a great country.

Peace and stability cannot prevail in the Middle East as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred, and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.

Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process. Over the last three years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and America has achieved energy independence. These historic accomplishments changed our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible. And options in the Middle East became available. We are now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We are independent, and we do not need Middle East oil.

The American military has been completely rebuilt under my administration, at a cost of $2.5 trillion. U.S. Armed Forces are stronger than ever before. Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal, and fast. Under construction are many hypersonic missiles.

The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.

Three months ago, after destroying 100 percent of ISIS and its territorial caliphate, we killed the savage leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi, who was responsible for so much death, including the mass beheadings of Christians, Muslims, and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Baghdadi was trying again to rebuild the ISIS caliphate, and failed.

Tens of thousands of ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration. ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.

Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.

I want to thank you, and God bless America. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.

Fox 10 replaying the speech a 3rd time!!!

NYGuy54

Hmmm…that was a “don’t fu** with US, you weak sissies” speech. Brief and to the point.
Love the digs on the previous administration and across the globe.

wolfmoon1776

Daughn’s thoughts yesterday – that there was a “one last chance” option, were correct.
These jokers in Iran had better appreciate that we are not counting areas of devastation up to 52 today.

NYGuy54

oh and make no mistake about it..the targets will be things that Khamenei values or depends upon greatly.

wolfmoon1776

Surprise is a sign of information.
Information is a sign of intelligence.
Intelligence is a sign of spirit.
And all of them are a sign of our VSG! <3

A great speech – bare-boned, hopeful and honest! I listened all 3 times Fox 10 Phoenix replayed it.

Barack Obama : IRAN
President Donald J. Trump : I DIDN’T
GOD BLESS YOU, President Trump…and GOD BLESS AMERICA.
<3
TRUMP 2020 !

NYGuy54

Also revealed how much of a lunatic Khamenei is. Diminished Iran’s stature in the world. Trump just humiliated them. And the great thing is that there is not much Iran can do about it.

wolfmoon1776

The only thing the Iranian leadership can do now is FUCK UP – and they had best not.

Glad to see she’s better. She was all worried last night that POTUS was going to listen to Rubio, Graham and other warmongers and strike back.

I NEVAH cease to be amazed at Trump supporters who get their undies in wad thinking DONALD TRUMP is going to be influenced by opinions CONTRARY to the Art of the Deal.

🦋🦋bflyjesusgrl🦋🦋

She’s usually so on the money. Last night was sad to watch, she’d given up on POTUS sticking with Sun Zu and was convinced he caved to Grubio. I almost tweeted her but didn’t – After years and successful proof of POTUS’ handling of the situation, you believe he’s changed his mind after watching a night of Fox News??

phoenixrising37

It’s the programming… Cabal has conditioned us to think ‘the sky is fallin’ … hard to breakaway from it, which is why I haven’t watched TV for eons now (so long ago, I can’t recall when I watched daily)
This ^^^^ is what POTUS is fighting against… and why a reveal won’t come any time soon… imho of course

Staying away from the Boob Tube really helps.

1. HYPOCRISY
2. DOUBLE STANDARDS

Cuppa Covfefe

If they didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all…

phoenixrising37

Iran was their laundromat …………………..

kinthenorthwest

I do wonder or actually believe that Iran has been funneling quite a bit of the monies Obama gave to them back to Obama and probably others in the Obama group

🦋🦋bflyjesusgrl🦋🦋

ozzytrumpster

Ehhh. Potus has morphed with Ricky.

ozzytrumpster

What a combo.
Ps. I asked Rodney but you might know
Can’t find the Iran vs USA match on Sportsbet

Rodney Short

Iran has egg on their face today Ozzy and now they have to xplain downing a Ukrainian jet,I have read multiple reports some say jet was full of Iranians others I have read say Canadian and Iranian.
I sure would like to see who was on that plane.
I would love to see John Kerry and maybe Valerie Jarrett.

ozzytrumpster

I wonder if it was incriminating evidence from the Ukraine. Like a certain server or business documents that people will kill to have them never see the light of day

Alison

Thank you Daughn and Wolfpack!!! I had to be offline early last night until just now, and I guess I missed the whole war !! What a year 2020 is turning out to be 😂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Gail Combs

THAT needs this in reply!

Alison

Hilarious 🤓🤣😍 What a wild roller coaster we’re on.

wolfmoon1776

Yeah, I just saw this now.
WOW – DO WE HAVE A POTUS!!! <3

NYGuy54

Rodney Short

kinthenorthwest

Obama and the Dems just built up their economy…Leaving Americans a bigger enemy to fight.

Coldeadhands

We know the Vikings were regular “visitors” to Scotland. Who knows…

NYGuy54

Ok now we got Boris Johnson to come along on the ride. Amazing how a strong leader attracts followers

kinthenorthwest

Heard that Meghan and Harry are stepping down from their royal duties and want to become financially independent. Considering Meghan’s lavish life style, this should be interesting.

NYGuy54

Ummm…Iran is bombing us again. Khamenei wants to die.

kea

Thanks for the write-up!!!! Reading it now.

kinthenorthwest
