Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.
Americans watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence in our streets and the chaos in our communities. Many have witnessed this violence personally, some have even been its victims.
I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored.
The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.
If, like me, you get excited about new roads, railways and airports that allow humanity to dominate the natural world rather than be dominated by it, and if you’re enthusiastic about our unique capacity as intelligent beings to stick two fingers up at the oceans and rivers and vast expanses of space and time that separate us, then you’ll recognise that developments in these areas have been decidedly mixed in recent months.

The genocide was implemented in two phases: the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and subjection of army conscripts to forced labour, followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly and infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian desert. Driven forward by military escorts, the deportees were deprived of food and water and subjected to periodic robbery, rape, and massacre.
You think it could not happen to us with the huge influx of savages which May is doing nothing to try to reduce? Poor sods – beset on all sides by Muslim throwbacks – the bulls of Bashan could have been written to describe just such a thing.
The chap was amazed I was complaining about this heat.
“How could you be moaning about a bit of fine weather?” he was amazed.
“Because I’ve had a gutful of it, having spent so many years out of the country. So anything over 22 degrees is too much for me these days – look at my skin colour. That’s why [he knew I had a boat in the building], I’ve awnings and hardtops all over the place – you’re never open to the direct sun, unless you choose to take it down.”
