“IT IS NOW TIME FOR A NEW APPROACH”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 15, 2016) — At 2:43 p.m. EDT, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is speaking in Youngstown, OH on how and when the barbaric terrorist group ISIS was formed from fragmented “rebel” groups in Syria during the now-five-year-old Syrian civil war.
The speech began at 2:00 p.m. and was widely publicized beforehand.
Trump said that the U.S. must combat “radical Islam,” asserting that his opponent, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, will not if elected to the White House in November.
At 2:56 p.m., Trump denounced “honor killings” carried out against women and girls for violating strict Islamic law known as Sharia. “Shockingly, this is a practice that has reached our own shores,” he said. “We must speak out against a hateful ideology,” he continued.
“A new immigration policy is needed,” he said at 2:58, citing the many Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. which have taken place since 2009. He reported that statistics show that 380 foreign-born individuals have committed attacks in the U.S. since the devastation of 9/11/01.
Trump said that the Obama regime has not taken radical Islam seriously, as he promised to do if he becomes president.
Trump said that anti-Semitic views have been transplanted to Germany and other Western European nations by Islamic immigrants. He said that during the Cold War years, there were certain screening procedures which need to be adopted again in the United States. “I call it ‘extreme vetting,'” Trump said several times.
“Those that do not believe in our Constitution will not be admitted to our country,” he said at 3:02. He said that importing terrorism “is not for us.”
If elected, Trump stated that he will direct immigration authorities to stop taking immigrants and refugees from areas which have been known to spawn terrorism. He also called for an overall reduction of immigrants. He contrasted his plan with Clinton’s, who he said will increase refugee immigration “by 550%” with a “lifetime cost of over $400 billion.”
At 3:05, the Fox News feed went dark, for which Shepard Smith apologized. It was restored about 30 seconds later.
Trump said that U.S. security apparatus is in need of a return to “common sense.” He said that the 9/11 hijackers should have been observed to have been “frauds.”
Trump denounced the recent attendance at a Clinton campaign rally of the father of the Orlando nightclub shooter who murdered 29 on June 12 of this year. Trump noted that the father, Seddique Mateen, had made pro-Taliban statements on his YouTube channel, which was taken down shortly after his son was identified as the nightclub murderer.
At 3:09, Trump said he would establish a commission to prevent “radicalization” and to “develop new protocols” for police and immigration officials. He then thanked law enforcers for their daily work.
He said that Americans must be united if our way of life is to be preserved.
The speech ended at 3:17 p.m. EDT.
