Trump’s full speech to crowd in Poland


>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT’S SO NICE. THE UNITED STATES HAS MANY GREAT DIPLOMATS. BUT THERE IS NO BETTER AMBASSADOR FOR OUR COUNTRY THAN OUR BEAUTIFUL FIRST LADY, MELANIA. THANK YOU, MELANIA. THAT WAS VERY NICE. WE’VE COME TO YOUR NATION TO DELIVER AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE. AMERICA LOVES POLAND. AND AMERICA LOVES THE POLISH PEOPLE. THANK YOU. THE POLES HAVE NOT ONLY GREATLY ENRICHED THIS REGION. BUT POLISH-AMERICANS HAVE ENRICHED THE UNITED STATES. AND I WAS TRULY PROUD TO HAVE THEIR SUPPORT IN THE 2016 ELECTION. IT IS A PROFOUND HONOR TO STAND IN THIS CITY BY THIS MONUMENT, TO THE WARSAW UPRISING AND TO ADDRESS THE POLISH NATION THAT SO MANY GENERATIONS HAVE DREAMED OF. A POLAND THAT IS SAFE, STRONG AND FREE. PRESIDENT DUDA AND YOUR WONDERFUL FIRST LADY HAVE WELCOMED US WITH THE TREMENDOUS WARMTH AND KINDNESS FOR WHICH POLAND IS KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD. THANK YOU. I SINCERELY THANK BOTH OF THEM. AND TO THE PRIME MINISTER, A VERY SPECIAL THANKS ALSO. WE ARE PLEASED THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS JOINED US ALSO. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. ON BEHALF OF ALL AMERICANS, LET ME ALSO THANK THE ENTIRE POLISH PEOPLE FOR THE GENEROSITY YOU HAVE SHOWN IN WELCOMING OUR SOLDIERS TO YOUR COUNTRY. THESE SOLDIERS ARE NOT ONLY BRAVE DEFENDERS OF PEOPLE ARE, BUT ALSO, SYMBOLS OF AMERICA’S COMMITMENT TO YOUR SECURITY AND YOUR PLACE IN A STRONG AND DEMOCRATIC EUROPE. WE ARE PROUDLY JOINED ON STAGE BY AMERICAN, POLISH, BRITISH AND ROMAINENIAN SOLDIERS. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GREAT JOB. PRESIDENT DUDA AND I HAVE JUST COME FROM AN INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFUL MEETING WITH THE LEADERS PARTICIPATING IN THE THREE Cs INITIATIVE. TO THE CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT REGION, AMERICA IS EAGER TO EXPAND OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH YOU. WE WELCOME STRONGER TIES OF TRADE AND COMMERCE AS YOU GROW YOUR ECONOMIES. AND WE ARE COMMITTED TO SECURING YOUR ACCESS TO ALTERNATE SOURCES OF ENERGY. SO, POLAND AND ITS NEIGHBORS ARE NEVER AGAIN HELD HOSTAGE TO A SINGLE SUPPLIER OF ENERGY. MR. PRESIDENT, I CONGRATULATE YOU ALONG WITH THE PRESIDENT OF CROATIA, ON YOUR LEADERSHIP OF THE HISTORIC THREE Cs INITIATIVE. THANK YOU. THIS IS MY FIRST VISIT TO CENTRAL EUROPE AS PRESIDENT. AND I AM THRILLED THAT IT COULD BE RIGHT HERE, AT THIS MAGNIFICENT, BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF LAND. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. POLAND IS THE GEOGRAPHIC HEART OF EUROPE. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, IN THE POLISH PEOPLE, WE SEE THE SOUL OF EUROPE. YOUR NATION IS GREAT BECAUSE YOUR SPIRIT IS GREAT. AND YOUR SPIRIT IS STRONG. FOR TWO CENTURIES, POLAND SUFFERED CONSTANT AND BRUTAL ATTACKS. WHILE POLAND COULD BE INVADED AND OCCUPIED AND ITS BORDERS ERASED FROM THE MAP, IT COULD NEVER BE ERASED FROM HISTORY OR FROM YOUR HEARTS. IN THOSE DARK DAYS, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR LAND, BUT YOU NEVER LOST YOUR PRIDE. SO, IT IS WITH TRUE ADMIRATION I CAN SAY TODAY, THAT FROM THE FARMS AND VILLAGES OF THE COUNTRYSIDE, TO THE CATHEDRALS AND SQUARES OF YOUR GREAT CITIES, POELAND LIVES, POLAND PROSPERS AND POLAND PREVAILS. DESPITE EVERY EFFORT TO TRANSFORM YOU, OPPRESS YOU OR DESTROY YOU, YOU ENDURED AND OVERCAME. YOU ARE THE PROUD NATION OF C COPERNICUS. THINK OF THAT. C CHOPIN, POLAND IS A LAND OF HERO PS HEROS. AND YOU ARE A PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE VALUE OF WHAT YOU DEFEND. THE TRIUMPH OF THE POLISH SPIRIT, OVER EVECENTURIES OF HARDSHIP, GIVES US GOOD CONAN CS EVIL AND PEACE OVER WAR. FOR AMERICANS, POLAND HAS BEEN A SYMBOL OF HOPE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF OUR NATION. POLISH HEROES AND AMERICAN PATRIOTS FOUGHT SIDE-BY-SIDE IN OUR WAR OF INDEPENDENCE AND IN MANY WARS THAT FOLLOWED. OUR SOLDIERS SERVE TOGETHER TODAY IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ, COMBATTING THE ENEMIES OF ALL CIVILIZATION. FOR AMERICA’S PART, WE HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP ON FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE. THE RIGHT AND DESTINY OF THE POLISH PEOPLE. AND WE NEVER, EVER WILL. OUR TWO COUNTRIES SHARE A SPECIAL BOND FORGED BY UNIQUE HISTORIES AND NATIONAL CHARACTERS. IT’S A FELLOWSHIP THAT EXISTS ONLY AMONG PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT AND BLED AND DIED FOR FREEDOM. THE SIDES OF THIS FRIENDSHIP STAND IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL. JUST STEPS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. WE’VE RAISED STATUES OF MEN, WITH NAMES LIKE POLASKY AND COCIOSCO. THE SAME IS TRUE IN WARSAW, WHERE STREET SIGNS CARRY THE NAME OF GEORGE WASHINGTON AND A MONUMENT STANDS TO ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST HEROES, RONALD REAGAN. SO, I AM HERE TODAY, NOT JUST TO VISIT AN OLD ALLY, BUT TO HOLD IT UP FOR AN EXAMPLE FOR THOSE WHO SEEK FREEDOM AND THOSE WHO SUMMON THE COURAGE AND THE WILL TO DEFEND OUR CIVILIZATION. THE STORY OF POLAND IS A STORY OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER LOST HOPE. WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN BROKEN AND WHO HAVE NEVER, EVER FORGOTTEN WHO THEY ARE. [ CHANTING ] THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THIS IS A GREAT HONOR. THIS IS A NATION MORE THAN 1,000 YEARS OLD. YOUR BORDERS WERE ERASED FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY AND ONLY RESTORED JUSTICE U.S. ONE CENTURY AGO. IN 1920, IN THE MIRACLE, POLAND STOPPED THE SOVIET ARMY, BENT ON EUROPEAN CONQUEST. THEN, 19 YEARS LATER, IN 1939, YOU WERE INVADED YET AGAIN, THIS TIME BY NAZI GERMANY FROM THE WEST AND THE SOVIET UNION FROM THE EAST. THAT’S TROUBLE. THE POLISH PEOPLE ENDURED EVILS BEYOND DESCRIPTION. THE MASSACRE, THE OCCUPATIONS, THE HOLOCAUST, THE WARSAW GHETTO AND THE WARSAW GHETTO UPRISING. THE DESTRUCTION OF THIS BEAUTIFUL CAPITAL CITY AND THE DEATHS OF NEARLY ONE IN FIVE POLISH PEOPLE. A VIBRANT JEWISH POPULATION, THE LARGEST IN EUROPE, WAS REDUCED TO ALMOST NOTHING AFTER THE NAZIS SYSTEMLY MURDERED MILLIONS OF POLANDS, JEWISH CITIZENS, ALONG WITH OTHERS IN THAT BRUTAL OCCUPATION. IN THE SUMMER OF 1944, THE NAZI AND SOVIET ARMIES WERE PREPARING FOR A TERRIBLE AND BLOODY BATTLE RIGHT HERE IN WARSAW. AMID THAT HELL ON EARTH, THE CITIZENS OF POLAND ROSE UP TO DEFEND THEIR HOMELAND. I AM DEEPLY HONORED TO BE JOINED ON STAGE TODAY BY VETERANS AND HEROES OF THE WARSAW UPRISING. WHAT GREAT SPIRIT. WE SALUTE YOUR NOBLE SACRIFICE AND PLEDGE TO ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR FIGHT FOR POLAND AND FOR FREEDOM. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THIS MONUMENT REMINDS US THAT 150,000 POLES DIED DURING THAT DESPERATE STRUGGLE TO OVERTHROW OPPRESSION. FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER, TO SOVIET ARMED FORCES, STOPPED AND WAITED. THEY WATCHED AS THE NAZIS RUTHLESSLY DESTROYED THE CITY. VICIOUSLY MURDERING MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN. THEY TRIED TO DESTROY THIS NATION FOREVER, BY SHATTERING ITS WILL TO SURVIVE. THERE’S A COURAGE AND A STRENGTH DEEP IN THE POLISH CHARACTER THAT NO ONE COULD DESTROY. THE POLISH MARTYR, BISHOP MICHAEL KOEZER. SAID IT MORE HORRIFYING OF A DEFEAT OF ARMS IS A COLLAPSE OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT. THROUGH FOUR DECADES OF COMMUNIST RULE, PORTLAND AND THE OTHER CAPTIVE NATIONS OF EUROPE, ENDURED A BRUTAL CAMPAIGN TO DEMOLISH FREEDOM, YOUR FAITH, YOUR LAWS, YOUR HISTORY, YOU IDENTITY. INDEED, THE VERY ESSENCE OF YOUR CULTURE AND HUMANITY. THROUGH IT ALL, YOU NEVER LOST THAT SPIRIT. YOUR OPPRESSORS TRIED TO BREAK YOU. BUT POLAND COULD NOT BE BROKEN. WHEN THE DAY CAME ON JUNE 2nd, 1979, AND 1 MILLION POLES GATHERED AROUND VICTORY SQUARE, FOR THE VERY FIRST MASS WITH THEIR POLISH POPE, THAT DAY EVERY COMMUNIST IN WARSAW MUST HAVE KNOWN THAT THE OPPRESSIVE SYSTEM WOULD SOON COME CRASHING DOWN. THEY MUST HAVE KNOWN IT AT THE EXACT MOMENT DURING POPE JOHN PAUL II SERMON, WHEN A MILLION POLISH MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN RAISED THEIR VOICES IN A SINGLE PRAYER. A MILLION POLISH PEOPLE DID NOT ASK FOR WEALTH. THEY DID NOT ASK FOR PRIVILEGE. INSTEAD, 1 MILLION POLES SANG THREE SIMPLE WORDS. WE WANT GOD. THE POLISH PEOPLE FOUND NEW COURAGE TO FACE DOWN THE OPPRESSORS. AND THEY FOUND THE WORDS TO DECLARE THAT POLAND WOULD BE POLAND ONCE AGAIN. AS I STAND HERE TODAY, BEFORE THIS INCREDIBLE CROWD, THIS FAITHFUL NATION, WE CAN STILL HEAR THOSE VOICES THAT ECHO THROUGH HISTORY. THEIR MESSAGE IS AS TRUE TODAY AS EVER. THE PEOPLE OF POLAND, THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA, AND THE PEOPLE OF EUROPE STILL CRY OUT, WE WANT GOD. TOGETHER WITH POPE JOHN PAUL II, THE POLES REASSERTED THEIR IDENTITY, AS A NATION DEVOTED TO GOD. AND WITH THAT POWERFUL DECLARATION OF WHO YOU ARE, YOU CAME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO LIVE. YOU STOOD IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST OPPRESSION, AGAINST A LAWLESS SECRET POLICE, AGAINST A CRUEL AND WICKED SYSTEM THAT IMPOVERISHED YOUR CITIES AND YOUR SOULS. AND YOU WON. POLAND PREVAILED. PORTLAND WILL ALWAYS PREVAIL. [ CHANTING ] THANK YOU. YOU WERE SUPPORTED IN THAT VICTORY OVER COMMUNIST BY A STRONG ALLIANCE OF FREE NATIONS IN THE WEST THAT DEFIED TYRANNY. NOW, MAAMONG THE MOST COMMITTED MEMBERS OF THE NATO ALLIANCE, THEY ARE A LEADING NATION OF A EUROPE THAT IS STRONG, WHOLE AND FREE. A STRONG POLAND IS A BLESSING TO THE NATIONS OF EUROPE. AND THEY KNOW THAT. A STRONG EUROPE IS A BLESSING TO THE WEST, AND TO THE WORLD. 100 YEARS AFTER THE ENTRY OF AMERICAN FORCES INTO WORLD WAR I, THE TRANSATLANTIC BOND BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE, IS AS STRONG AS EVER AND MAYBE, IN MY WAYS, EVEN STRONGER. THIS CONTINENT NO LONGER CONFRONTS THE SPECTER OF COMMUNISM. BUT TODAY, WE’RE IN THE WEST. AND WE HAVE TO SAY, THERE ARE DIRE THREATS TO OUR SECURITY AND TO OUR WAY OF LIFE. YOU SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING OUT THERE. THEY ARE THREATS. WE WILL CONFRONT THEM. WE WILL WIN. BUT THEY ARE THREATS. WE ARE CONFRONTED BY ANOTHER OPPRESSIVE IDEOLOGY, ONE THAT THREATENS EXTREMISM ALL AROUND THE GLOBE. AMERICA AND OTHERS HAVE SUFFERED ONE TERROR ATTACK AFTER ANOTHER. WE’RE GOING TO GET IT TO STOP. DURING A HISTORIC GATHERING IN SAUDI ARABIA, I CALLED ON THE LEADERS OF MORE THAN 50 MUSLIM NATIONS TO JOIN TOGETHER TO DRIVE OUT THIS MENACE WHICH THREATENS ALL OF HUMANITY. WE MUST STAND UNITED AGAINST THE SHARED ENEMIES TO STRIP THEM OF THEIR TERRITORY AND THEIR FUNDING AND THEIR NETWORKS AND ANY FORM OF IDEOLOGICAL SUPPORT THAT THEY MAY HAVE. WHILE WE WILL ALWAYS NEW CITIZENS WHO SHARE OUR VALUES AND LOVE OUR PEOPLE, OUR BORDERS WILL ALWAYS BE CLOSED TO TERRORISM AND EXTREMISM OF ANY KIND. WE’RE FIGHTING HARD AGAINST RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM. AND WE WILL PREVAIL. WE CANNOT ACCEPT THOSE WHO REJECT OUR VALUES, AND WHO USE HATRED TO JUSTIFY VIOLENCE AGAINST THE INNOCENT. TODAY, THE WEST IS ALSO CONFRONTED BY THE POWERS THAT SEEK TO TEST OUR WILL, UNDERMINE OUR CONFIDENCE AND CHALLENGE OUR INTERESTS. TO MEET NEW FORMS OF AGGRESSION, INCLUDING PROPAGANDA, FINANCIAL CRIMES AND CYBER WARFARE. WE MUST ADAPT OUR ALLIANCE TO COMPETE EFFECTIVELY, IN NEW WAYS, AND ON ALL NEW BATTLEFIELDS. WE URGE RUSSIA TO CEASE ITS DESTABILIZING ACTIVITIES IN UKRAINE AND ELSEWHERE. AND ITS SUPPORT FOR HOSTILE RE REGIMES, INCLUDING SYRIA AND IRAN. AND TO JOIN THE COMMUNITY OF RESPONSIBLE NATIONS IN OUR FIGHT AGAINST COMMON ENEMIES AND IN DEFENSE OF CIVILIZATION ITSELF. FINALLY, BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC, OUR CITIZENS ARE IN DANGER, ONE FIRMLY IN OUR CONTROL. THIS DANGER IS INVISIBLE TO SOME, BUT FAMILIAR TO THE POLES. THE STEADY CREEP OF GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY THAT DRAINS THE VITALITY AND WEALTH OF THE PEOPLE. THE WEST BECAME GREAT, NOT BECAUSE OF PAPERWORK AND REGULATIONS. BUT BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE ALLOWED TO CHASE THEIR DREAMS AND PURSUIT THEIR DESTINIES. AMERICA, POLES AND NATIONS OF VALUE, VALUE FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY. WHETHER THEY COME INSIDE OR OUT, THE SOUTH AND THE EAST, THE THREAT OVER TIME TO UNDERMINE THESE VALUES AND TO ERASE THE BONDS OF CULTURE, FAITH AND TRADITION THAT MAKE US WHO WE ARE. IF LEFT UNCHECKED, THESE FORCES WILL UNDERMINE OUR COURAGE, SAP OUR SPIRIT AND WEAKEN OUR WILL TO DEFEND OURSELVES AND OUR SOCIETIES. BUT JUST AS OUR ADVERSARIES AND ENEMIES OF THE PAST LEARNED HERE IN POLAND, WE KNOW THESE FORCES, TOO, ARE DOOMED TO FAIL IF WE WANT THEM TO FAIL. AND WE DO WANT THEM TO FAIL. THEY ARE DOOMED NOT BECAUSE OUR ALLIANCE IS STRONG, OUR COUNTRY IS RESILIENT AND POWER IS UNMATCHED. THROUGH ALL OF THAT, YOU HAVE TO SAY, EVERYTHING IS TRUE. OUR ADVERSARIES ARE DOOMED BECAUSE WE WILL NEVER FORGET WHO WE ARE. AND IF WE DON’T FORGET WHO WE ARE, WE JUST CAN’T BE BEATEN. THE NATIONS OF EUROPE WILL NEVER FORGET. WE ARE THE FASTEST AND THE GREATEST COMMUNITY. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE OUR COMMUNITY OF NATIONS, THE WORLD HAS NEVER KNOWN ANYTHING LIKE OUR COMMUNITY OF NATIONS. WE WRITE SYMPHONIES. WE PURSUE INNOVATION. WE CELEBRATE OUR ANCIENT HEROES AND EMBRACE OUR TIMELESS TRADITIONS AND CUSTOMS AND ALWAYS SEEK TO EXPLORE AND DISCOVER BRAND-NEW FRONTIERS. WE REWARD BRILLIANCE. WE STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE. AND CHERISH INSPIRING WORKS OF ART. WE TREASURE THE RULE OF LAW AND PROTECT THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH AND FREE EXPRESSION. WE EMPOWER WOMEN AS PILLARS OF OUR SOCIETY AND OUR SUCCESS. WE PUT FAITH AND FAMILY, NOT GOVERNMENT AND BUREAUCRACY, AT THE CENTER OF OUR LIVES. AND WE DEBATE EVERYTHING. WE CHALLENGE EVERYTHING. WE SEEK TO KNOW EVERYTHING, SO THAT WE CAN BETTER KNOW OURSELVES. AND ABOVE ALL, WE VALUE THE DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN LIFE, PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF EVERY PERSON AND SHARE THE HOPE OF EVERY SOUL TO LIVE IN FREEDOM. THAT IS WHO WE ARE. THOSE ARE THE PRICELESS TIES THAT BIND US TOGETHER, AS NATIONS, AS ALLIES AND AS A CIVILIZATION. WHAT WE HAVE, WHAT WE INHERITED. AND YOU KNOW THIS BETTER THAN ANYBODY AND YOU SEE IT TODAY, WITH THIS INCREDIBLE GROUP OF PEOPLE. WHAT WE’VE INHERITED FROM OUR ANCESTORS, HAS NEVER EXISTED TO THIS EXTENT BEFORE. AND IF WE FAIL TO PRESERVE IT, IT WILL NEVER EVER EXIST AGAIN. SO, WE CANNOT FAIL. THIS GREAT COMMUNITY OF NATIONS HAS SOMETHING ELSE IN COMMON. IN EVERY ONE OF THEM, IT IS THE PEOPLE, NOT THE POWERFUL, WHO HAVE ALWAYS FORMED THE FOUNDATION OF FREEDOM AND THE CORNER S ERSTONE OF OUR DEFENSE. THE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN THAT FOUNDATION HERE IN PORTLAND, AS THEY WERE RIGHT HERE IN WARSAW. AND THEY WERE THE FOUNDATION FROM THE VERY, VERY BEGINNING, IN AMERICA. OUR CITIZENS DID NOT WIN FREEDOM TOGETHER. DID NOT SURVIVE HORRORS TOGETHER. DID NOT FACE DOWN EVIL TOGETHER. ONLY TO LOSE OUR FREEDOM, TO ALACK OF PRIDE AND CONFIDENCE IN OUR VALUES. WE DID NOT AND WE WILL NOT. WE WILL NEVER BACK DOWN. AS LONG AS WE KNOW OUR HISTORY, WE KNOW HOW TO BUILD OUR FUTURE. AMERICANS KNOW A STRONG ALLIANCE OF FREE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT NATIONS IS THE BEST DEFENSE OUR OUR FREEDOMS AND FOR OUR INTERESTS. THAT IS WHY MY ADMINISTRATION HAS DEMANDED THAT ALL MEMBERS OF NATO FINALLY MEET THEIR FULL AND FAIR FINANCIAL OBLIGATION. AS A RESULT OF THIS INSISTENCE, BILLIONS OF DOLLARS MORE, HAVE BEGUN TO POUR INTO NATO. IN FACT, PEOPLE ARE SHOCKED. WHAT BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF MORE, COMING IN FROM COUNTRIES, IN MY OPINION, WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PAYING SO QUICKLY. TO THOSE WHO WOULD CRITICIZE OUR TOUGH STANCE, I WOULD POINT OUT THAT THE UNITED STATES HAS DEMONSTRATED NOT MERELY WITH WORDS, BUT WITH ITS ACTIONS THAT WE STAND FIRMLY BEHIND ARTICLE 5, THE MUTUAL DEFENSE COMMITMENT. WORDS ARE EASY BUT ACTION IS WHAT MATTERS. FOR ITS OWN PRODUCTION — AND YOU KNOW THIS. EVERYBODY HAS TO KNOW THIS. EUROPE MUST DO MORE. EUROPE MUST INVEST ITS MONEY TO SECURE THAT FUTURE. THAT’S WHY WE APPLAUD POLAND FOR ITS DECISION TO MOVE FORWARD THIS WEEK ON ACQUIRING FROM THE UNITED STATES, THE BATTLE-TESTED PATRIOT AIR AND MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM, THE BEST ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. THAT’S WHY WE SALUTE THE POLISH PEOPLE BEING ONE OF THE NATO COUNTRIES THAT’S ACHIEVED THE BENCHMARK FOR INVESTMENT IN OUR COMMON DEFENSE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, POLAND. AND I MUST TELL YOU, THE EXAMPLE YOU SET IS DRAWLY MAGNIFICENT. AND WE APPLAUD POLAND. THANK YOU. WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT OUR DEFENSE IS NOT JUST A COMMITMENT OF MONEY. IT IS A COMMITMENT OF WILL BECAUSE AS THE POLISH EXPERIENCE REMINDS US, THE DEFENSE OF THE WEST ULTIMATELY RESTS, NOT ONLY ON MEANS BUT ALSO ON THE WILL OF ITS PEOPLE TO PREVAIL AND BE SUCCESSFUL AND GET WHAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE. THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION OF OUR TIME IS, WHETHER THE WEST HAS THE WILL TO SURVIVE. DO WE HAVE THE CONFIDENCE IN OUR VALUES TO DEFEND THEM AT ANY COST? DO WE HAVE ENOUGH RESPECT FOR OUR CITIZENS TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS? DO WE HAVE THE DESIRE AND THE COURAGE TO PRESERVE OUR CIVILIZATION IN THE FACE OF THOSE WHO WOULD SUBVERT AND DESTROY IT? WE CAN HAVE — — THE LARGEST ECONOMIES AND THE MOST LETHAL WEAPONS ANYWHERE ON EARTH. BUT IF WE TO NOT HAVE STRONG FAMILIES AND STRONG VALUES, THEN WE WILL BE WEAK. AND WE WILL NOT SURVIVE. IF ANYONE FORGETS THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THESE THINGS, LET THEM COME TO ONE COUNTRY THAT NEVER HAS. LET THEM COME TO PORTLAND. LET THEM COME HERE THE WARSAW AND LEARN THE STORY OF THE WARSAW UPRISING. WHEN THEY DO, THEY SHOULD LEARN ABOUT JERUSALEM AVENUE. IN AUGUST OF 1944, JERUSALEM AVENUE WAS ONE OF THE MAIN ROADS RUNNING EAST AND WEST THROUGH THIS CITY. JUST AS IT IS TODAY. CRIMINAL OF THAT ROAD WAS CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT TO BOTH SIDES, IN THE BATTLE FOR WARSAW. THE GERMAN MILITARY WANTED IT AS THEIR MOST DIRECT ROUTE TO MOVE TROOPS AND TO FORM A VERY STRONG FRONT. FOR THE POLISH HOME ARMY, THE ABILITY TO PASS NORTH AND SOUTH TO PASS THAT ARMY WAS CRITICAL TO KEEP THE CENTER OF THE CITY AND THE UPRISING ITSELF FROM BEING SPLIT APART AND DESTROYED. EVERY NIGHT THE POLES PUT UP SANDBAGS AMID MACHINE GUNFIRE, AND IT WAS HORRENDOUS FIRE, TO PROTECT A NARROW PASSAGE ACROSS JERUSALEM AVENUE. EVERYDAY THE ENEMY FORCES KNOCKED THEM DOWN AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. THEN THE POLES DUG A TRENCH. FINALLY THEY BUILT A BARRICADE. AND THE BRAVE POLISH FIGHTERS BEGAN TO FLOW ACROSS JERUSALEM AVENUE. THAT NARROW PASSAGEWAY JUST A FEW FEET WIDE WAS THE FRAGILE LINK THAT KEPT THE UPRISING ALIVE. BETWEEN ITS WALLS A CONSTANT STREAM OF CITIZENS AND FREEDOM FIGHTERS MADE THEIR PERILOUS — JUST PERILOUS SPRINTS, THEY RAN ACROSS THAT STREET, THEY RAN THROUGH THAT STREET, THEY RAN UNDER THAT STREET, ALL TO DEFEND THIS CITY. THE FAR SIDE WAS SEVERAL YARDS AWAY, RECALLED ONE YOUNG POLISH WOMAN NAMED GRETTA. THAT MORTALITY AND THAT LIFE WAS SO IMPORTANT TO HER. IN FACT, SHE SAID THE MORTALLY DANGEROUS SECTOR OF THE STREET WAS SOAKED IN BLOOD. IT WAS THE BLOOD OF MESSENGERS, LIASON AND COURIERS, EVERYBODY WAS BEING SHOT, SOLDIERS BURNED EVERY BUILDING ON THE STREET AND USED THE POLES AS HUMAN SHIELDS FOR THEIR TANKS IN THEIR EFFORT TO CAPTURE JERUSALEM AVENUE. THE ENEMY NEVER CEASED ITS RELENTLESS ASSAULT ON THAT SMALL OUTPOST OF CIVILIZATION. AND THE POLES NEVER CEASED ITS DEFENSE. THE JERUSALEM AVENUE PASSAGE REQUIRED CONSTANT PROTECTION, REPAIR AND REINFORCEMENT, BUT THE WILL OF ITS DEFENDERS DID NOT WAVER EVEN IN THE FACE OF DEATH. AND TO THE LAST DAYS OF THE UPRISING THE FRAGILE CROSSING NEVER EVER FAILED. IT WAS NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN. IT WAS KEPT OPEN BY THE POLISH PEOPLE. THE MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO PERISHED IN THE WARSAW UPRISING CRY OUT ACROSS THE DECADES, AND FEW ARE CLEARER THAN THE MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO DIED TO BUILD AND DEFEND THE JERUSALEM AVENUE CROSSING. THOSE HEROES REMIND US THAT THE WEST WAS SAVED WITH THE BLOOD OF PATRIOTS. THAT EACH GENERATION MUST RISE UP AND PLAY THEIR PART IN ITS DEFENSE. AND THAT EVERY FOOT OF GROUND AND EVERY LAST INCH OF CIVILIZATION IS WORTH DEFENDING WITH YOUR LIFE. OUR OWN FIGHT FOR THE WEST DOES NOT BEGIN ON THE BATTLEFIELD. IT BEGINS WITH OUR MINDS, OUR WILLS AND OUR SOULS. TODAY, THE TIES THAT UNITE OUR CIVILIZATION ARE NO LESS VITAL AND DEMAND NO LESS DEFENSE THAN THAT BARE SHRED OF LAND ON WHICH THE HOPE OF POLAND ONCE TOTALLY RESTED. OUR FREEDOM, OUR CIVILIZATION AND OUR SURVIVAL DEPEND ON THESE BONDS OF HISTORY, CULTURE AND MEMORY. AND TODAY AS EVER POLAND IS IN OUR HEART. AND ITS PEOPLE ARE IN THAT FIGHT. JUST AS POLAND COULD NOT BE BROKEN, I DECLARED TODAY FOR THE WORLD TO HEAR THAT THE WEST WILL NEVER EVER BE BROKEN. OUR VALUES WILL PREVAIL. OUR PEOPLE WILL THRIVE. AND OUR CIVILIZATION WILL TRIUMPH. THANK YOU. SO TOGETHER LET US ALL FIGHT LIKE THE POLES FOR FAMILY, FOR FREEDOM, FOR COUNTRY AND FOR GOD. THANK YOU. GOD BLESS YOU. GOD BLESS THE POLISH PEOPLE. GOD BLESS OUR ALLIES. AND GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF

    Radical Islamic Terrorism was created by rogue elements in the Intelligence communities in USA, England and Austria controlled by an evil cabal.

  40. Just me 06 says:

    POTUS will never make a public statement because the corporate propaganda media will make him look crazy giving the Democrats a reason to impeach him but I can. The world is not what it seems, most media, TV, magazines, newspapers and online has been taken over by some evil people worldwide, we are being lied to, they use propaganda on each and every one of us. Their goal is to have a New World Order, one government that controls the whole world, we don't vote for them, they appoint themselves. This New World Order doesn't worship the God of the Bible, they worship Satan. They are the ones creating war, disease, poverty, terrorism… POTUS wants the world to know the truth. One year ago POTUS ordered an information dissemination operation to guide the people of the world in researching for the truth. This operation is known as "Q" or "QAnon". Q can be found on 8chan, he/they post questions, phrases, articles etc. I watch "Citizens Investigative Reports" on YouTube, whenever Q posts something, Katie makes a video and helps us understand what Q is talking about. I know this sounds crazy but we are under attack, literally the entire world is under attack. Please find Citizens Investigative Reports on YouTube and watch.

    Interesting our uneducated liberals call Trump a Nazi. Poland and its Polish people who were savaged by Hitler and his armies. Cheer Trump on. What do the Polish know that our delusional liberals fail to see about Trump. Maybe it's that Polish know leaders who want their people to be free from the likes of liberals.
