in australia. he is an author of three books, a tv comedy to pick my to seem on shows, on fox like o'reilly and most recently he started his organization flag, a foundation for liberty in american greatest. you will be hearing more about that later but we are very excited he was doing this because flag is dedicated to reversing the toxins from political correctness and the defamation of america. and the way he is doing it is starting where it needs to start, with elementary, middle and high school students. that's his goal to do that. [applause] nick has had recommendations for books and his work some such notables as dana perino, van carson and colonel north. and isn't bored at like a stat with notables as well. most important perhaps for alumni of cornel west serve on the board a flight.

[applause] >> good evening, ladies and
gentlemen, of the conservative forum of silicon valley. [applause] what an honor it is to be able to be here with each and every single one of you. i have to extend my profound gratitude to the president, and erika ammiriti for being instrumental in ensuring that i could be here with you this evening. it was not easy as many of you will well know but we managed to achieve it, and i'm just thrilled to be here. i would also like to send out a very big thank you for their kindness and their generosity the last couple of days, making my inaugural visit to silicon valley so deeply special.
what a pleasure and privilege it is to be in the land of the free and the home of the brave. [applause] in the worlds exceptional nation, in civilizations indispensable country, and to top it all off, if all that were not enough, in silicon valley, the living and breathing validation of conservative principles where the inimitable human, entrepreneurial, individual spirit truly thrives. a place where individual investment, innovation and ingenuity marks that which is exceptional in the united states of america. [applause]
ladies and gentlemen, i want to share with you a story. and as i share with you this story i invite you to close your eyes and really imagine what it is that i'm telling you. it's december 1985, 2 parents are at their wits end. something is wrong with their 16 month old child. four months they have been to doctor after doctor, pediatrician after pediatrician. but nobody can tell them what is wrong. one night on the 23rd of december with their child more unsettled than even usual, they had to the emergency department at the local children's
hospital. the ward is almost deserted but there is one overnight doctor, a young man with a smiling face and an accent. as he looks the child over, his smile quickly evaporates. i'm not sure, he says, i think that your child has neuroblastoma, at a think it's in a very advanced stage and you need to make sure that you get your child in for tests the first thing tomorrow morning, the very next day the parents worst fears would be confirmed. their child had stage for neuroblastoma, a very rare form of childhood cancer. the parents were mine.
the doctor was an american. the child was me. the cause of neuroblastoma remains unknown to this day come with only one in 100,000 children being diagnosed with it each year. it's notoriously difficult to diagnose. when it is the tumor has almost always already metastasized. an infant with stage four neuroblastoma is given just a 5% chance of life. only one in 20 survived. through the healing hands of god and our physician, i underwent three years of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and an operation. i defied the odds, and i survived. the instincts of that american doctor, fresh out of college, just in australia from a summer internship, just in the nick of
time proved crucial to my survival. so ladies and gentlemen, i haven't only studied american exceptionalism, i've lived it. in fact, i am alive because of it. [applause] since the early adversity i have been unstoppable. i was public and elected to political office at the age of 19. i became the youngest deputy mayor in australian history, just eight days after my 21st birthday. i was a best-selling author before i turn the age of 30. now having recently turned 32 i've spoken in more than half of the states in the united states of america, and i know there are
not 57. [laughter] i have appeared on almost every single major radio and television program in the country. i've spoken in five different nations. i'm a regular on fox news, and worldwide recognize as an authority on american exceptionalism. in fact ladies and gentlemen, i decided to dedicate my life to protecting, promoting and preserving the united states of america. [applause] and if all of that were not enough, on the 29th of july 2016, a mere five months ago, after four and a half long, torturers, arduous years, and almost $50,000 or later i finally immigrated to the united
states of america. i am an american. [applause] which gives me a very unique trifecta. i am australian by birth, text and by appointment, thank you, governor rick perry, and american by choice. [applause] so what is it that i believe in? i believe in god, personal responsibility, the sanctity of human life, that wilfred should ideally be a community and church responsibility. i believe that the best social program is a job. i believe in free markets. individual liberty. i believe in the state of israel, a strong national defense --
[applause] i believe in the right to bear arms. but up there with all of those things, ladies and gentlemen, i believe in america. and i want you to know something, that despite all of the cultural problems of america may have right now, this is still by far and away the greatest country in the history of the world. [applause] every single time i speak in front of an audience of the next generation of america, of the future leaders of the united states, whether it's an elementary school, a middle school, high school or a college, i tell the students at the day that they were born in the united states of america is that day that they won the lottery of life.
[applause] and i beseech them to never ever buy into the narrative of the left, that america is an awful place, a terrible place, that america only caters to certain people. this is the best country in the world to be born in, the best country in the world to live in, the best country in the world to start a business in, the best country in the world to work in. this is a country where you can pull down 5000 times, but if you have the grit and determination to get up 5001, you can do it and you can make it. this is the nation of the world where you can rise above the circumstances of your birth to go on and achieve whatever it is that's in your heart to be achieved.
this is the country where risk, hustle and initiative goes further than anywhere else. american is special because america is not just a country, not simply a stretch of land, not merely a geographic entity. america is an idea. it is an ideal. it is a notion. it is an improbable and daring experiment that remains just as improbable and daring today. it is the hope that vanishes all hopelessness. there are four ways the nation is that it exceptional. culturally, militarily, economically and scientifically. and on each of those four measurements, in almost 5000
years of recorded human history, we have never before seen a nation, a culture or a people dominate the way the united states of america has. but ladies and gentlemen, american exceptionalism is not an accident. it's intentional. you see, the most pressing means to ever walked this earth were america's founders who understood that they key to unleashing human potential, the key to unlocking human ingenuity, they key to unleashing humans innovation was to make sure that men and women were as unencumbered as possible by red tape and the need for government approval. and it is for all of those
reasons that this is the exceptional and indispensable country of the world. that the american value system is the value system of all mankind. it's also why america's role in the world is unlike any other. ladies and gentlemen, the worlds fortunes travel with the united states of america. when america is strong, the world is strong. when america is weak, the world is a week and dangerous place. that's not a nick adam type hypothesis that a screw on the back of a cocktail napkin after a few drinks. we are living that reality right now real-time, as of the elites in our government have deliberately sought to make america retreat, have intentionally made sure that the
influence of the united states has waned in recent years. and as a result, the world we live in right now is a world that is full of problems. i want you to consider for just a fleeting moment, ladies and gentlemen, what the world would look like without the united states of america. north korea would invade south korea. taiwan would be overrun by china. russia would rebuild the soviet empire. islamic terrorists would act with complete impunity. war, maybe nuclear, would break out in the middle east. pirates in north africa would run around even more mercilessly
and what they already do. the world would be covered in a typical style darkness with individual liberty gradually diminishing and ultimately becoming extinct. that is what the world would look like without the united states of america. there are 10 things that america needs to do to be strong here at home so that that light, domestically, can shine abroad. we've got you in the ways, pay the debt, limit the government, act with political correctness, or take the borders, preserve judeo-christian tradition. in that the culture. cut taxes, and keep the peace through unquestioned military
advantage. these are the things -- this is the agenda that america needs to get behind. but ladies and gentlemen, without a doubt the greatest threat facing the united states of america, the american idea, the virtues and values of americans is political correctness. political correctness is killing the united states of america. you see, most people think political correctness is merely an imposition on speech. well, that would be bad enough without tradition of the first amendment. but i've got to tell you, ladies and gentlemen, with regret in my voice, that political correctness is infinitely more than that. political correctness is a
cultural mindset. it is an attitude. it is a way of life that tells you to strive for mediocrity and not greatness. that punishes you for coloring outside of the line, that tell you that life is about kissing but, rather than taking it. [laughter] what could be more to the american promise from that proposition? america has always been about kicking butt, not kissing it. and yet political correctness would seek to turn that on its head. ladies and gentlemen, political correctness is a choking conformity. it is a totalitarian ideology that stripped us of our individualism, that eliminates our confidence, that renews our patriotism. political correctness is turning
the american dream into the european nightmare. america is complex, but american exceptionalism is easy. it individualism, not collectivism. it's patriotism, not relativism. it's fight, not secularism. god not kevin. it's equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome. it's about being bold, not being bland. it's about e. pluribus unum, not multiculturalism. these are the things that always served to differentiate the united states of america from every other place in the world. and yet those elites in the media, in academia and every other cultural institution would
seek to remove every point of difference between america and the rest of the world. they want to see america become just another european country. just another belgian. but ladies and gentlemen, that's exactly what we need to push back against. with renewed optimism in our country's direction, we once more boldly make plans for our dreams. with a soon to be revitalized white house, the spring has returned to our step. once more, america at the brink with the entire world watching,
teetering on the precipice of mediocrity, wrestling with potential obscurity, up against every imaginable opposition, americans pulled one out again for mankind. saved western civilization, granted as a reprieve. secured our immediate inoculation from a european existence. staved off and struck a deadly blow at the epicenter of the evil black heart of the islamist ambitions for at least four years. i am reminded, ladies and gentlemen, -- [applause] of my political hero and the greatest figure of the 20th century whose time i proudly wear tonight, sir winston churchill and his affectionate jibe that america always does
the right thing after exhausting every other option. [laughter] ladies and gentlemen, we did our part at the ballot box. the conspicuously galante men and women of united states military will continue to protect the homeland. [applause] and -- [inaudible] any man who harbors dreams of tierney. but now with all of this set up for us, with the wind at our backs, now is not the time to bask in the glory of the glow of victory. now is the time to capitalize and now is a time for us to
storm the gates of the left. this is our time. this is our moment. it is now time to fight the ideological war. it is time to win back the future. it is time to mobilize middle america. this is the moment we have been waiting for. this is the moment that we can change the course of history, that we can transform a generation, that we can change a culture, that we can change the media narrative. that we contract political correctness and relegate it to dusty bookshelf of some third-rate library right where it belongs. [applause] this is a time to heal the division that the left purposely broke wide open, but more than that, ladies and gentlemen, most importantly of all, this is our
chance to do something that for several generations we as americans have not done. that we simply assume would be passed on. this is our opportunity to pass on what it means to be an american, what americanism is. a country, a society much like any individual has to have a reason in order for it to survive weather is why, there is a house. americans have lost our how. that's what we need to get back. the most stunning and change in the global mind in the last 50 years is the prevalence of this
idea that america is a villain, a perpetrator, a predator, and imperialist, world monger, terrorist, that america is evil. all collectivist societies around the world now see america as a common enemy and have joined forces against her. the elites in the media, academia and education are deliberately and recklessly depicting america as a hateful and bigoted place, intentionally seeking to raise a generation of americans that are ambivalent, if not overtly and outwardly hostile to their country of birth and residents. you see, ladies and gentlemen,
conservatives are builders. leftists are destroyers. they have to destroy in order to try and build the utopia that they seek. they have destroyed our patriotism. they have destroyed our confidence. they have destroyed the family unit. ladies and gentlemen, it is now our turn our time to stand up and meet that destruction, and to punch back as hard as we possibly can. many of us in this room have felt the heat of the left. we have lost jobs. we have missed out on opportunities. we had been forced out of organizations. we've been ostracized and
blacklisted and punished and dragged over the hot coals. all of my adult life i have been up against the ogre of the left stick many times over, my life has been turned upside down by some of the most repulsive and quite frankly evil people i have ever met. i became unemployable in australia as a high school english teacher because of views that i expressed in fox news studios half a world away in new york city. my father, a lifelong teacher of mathematics, of impeccable standing, once they found out who his son was, they then went
after him and forced him into early retirement. my dream of becoming an american almost didn't materialize despite having earned and extraordinary ability green card, and having had it already approved by the united states citizenship and immigration service. when at the last second, an activist of the left in the u.s. state department decided to try and overturn my approval, leading to a period of time in my life where i had no future in australia and was facing the prospect of never ever been able to return here to the notice states of america, a country that i love and the country that i've worked so hard to build up a life and a career in. ladies and gentlemen, i am sick
of these people. [applause] i am ready to clean them out. i am ready to make sure that the country that we leave our children and our grandchildren and their great, great, great grandchildren is not a country or a place like the one that we currently inhabit. .. >> flag is committed to stopping the defamation of the american people, the
american nation and the american culture. flag is not a think tank. flag is a battle tank area flag is all about changing the culture and changing the media narrative by using the tactics of the left back against them. that's how we win. that's how we reverse the tide. flag is in educational monster. we go into as many elementary, middle and high schools as we possibly can. talking to kids about what makes america special. what makes america different. why is the constitution the best political document ever. what would the world look like today had it not been for american leadership in the 20th century? what would the world look like in the future if there
was no america? what has the united states given the world? why has it been an unparalleled force for good in this world? ladies and gentlemen, we seek to counter the army of anti-american activists masquerading as teachers . that are deliberately ... [applause] trying to raise a generation of american haters. flag is also a media response are . but days of the left playing unopposed are over. [applause] flag will steal ads from every major cable television network all the way to fox news and we will
make sure that every single time america's reputation is on the line, every single time someone seeks to slander or liable or defame the united states of america, we are countering with truth. we are countering with tactics. ladies and gentlemen, it's time for us to start writing the petitions. it's time for us to start calling the heads to roll. i want people to know that if they are going to go out there and they are going to mark, reduce, castigate, lie bill, slander or defame the united states of america there is an organization that will call into account. [applause] here's the deal, ladies and gentlemen. here's the deal. if you said 1/16 of the
things that are set about the united states of america about any other country, culture or people, you would be pulled over the hot coals of every antidiscrimination tribunal and human rights commission you could hope to seek out. but as you come out and say something awful about the united states of america, the culture treats you like you're a hero. it is a disgraceful inversion of logic, of fairness and of decency and while our gallant men and women of the united states military have got our backs, and sea and land and error, and even in space, the one place where we need to stand up is not for ourselves, at least for them is we need to stand up for america against the culture
and that is exactly what flag is all about doing. this last july, america celebrated the 200 and 40th birthday, a time for great celebration. but i would also suggest ladies and gentlemen a time for sober and somber reflection. because if you go and ask any historian worth their salt how long great nations tend to last, they will tell you somewhere between 230 and 250 years. that puts america right in the kill zone. and that is why, ladies and gentlemen, the states are higher today than what they
have ever been. because the enemies of the united states are no longer simply for him. they are also domestic. and that is why the battle that we are going to have to embark is going to require us to muster every ounce of patriotism, every seed of passion from the soles of our feet to thetops of our heads . the rescue this country. i've come to the united states at a time when most people have written her off. most people say that america's best days are behind her. most people say that america's glory time is extinct, i don't believe that for a single solitary second.
as a student of american history, there is a boomerang resilience feature of the american psyche and the average american, from the early defeat by britain in the war of independence to the loss of philippines to pearl harbor to the days following september 11, every single time america has been under attack, every single time freedom has been under attack, america has bounced back bigger and stronger and better than ever before. ladies and gentlemen, flag is committed to presiding over a conservative patriotic constitutional renaissance. that will secure the american dream for another 200 years at least. we are off to a flying start,
in just three months we have already changed our most 4000 students. at 31 different schools, three of which were public schools in 12 different states. [applause] we are currently in the middle of producing the world's first student friendly constitution. we are getting the constitution into plain english. we are making it relatable with images and graphic design and it is to make sure that kid friendly constitution one day gets into the hands of everysingle american child. flag envisions a day , ladies and gentlemen, where every single child at the beginning of the school year will see a flag freedom back. in that freedom bag will be a
copy of the constitution, a copy of the kid friendly constitution. a declaration of independence and an american flag because ladies and gentlemen, we want our children, the future leaders of tomorrow to be anchored to the values and virtues that have catapulted america to the pinnacle nation on this earth. we are doing incredibly well. all flags advisory council, have managed to assemble an all-star conservative task. my mentor, lieutenant colonel allen west. [applause] another mentor, dennis price, a conservative radio host hailing from this very state.my good friend pete hey seth and iraq and
afghanistan veteran. a graduate and recently made a permanent host on fox friends weekend. john sullivan, the executive producer of two of the three dinesh desousa films. charlie part of turning point usa. ladies and gentlemen, this group is committed to making sure that we stop the right. we are committed to making sure all of those areas of influence that the left has so successfully infiltrated are going to be over and we're not going to do it with research papers, we're not going to do it sitting behind a desk.
flag is all about going out there and taking the fight to the left. we are all about making the case foramerica . unapologetically, robustly, aggressively and swiftly. without retreating, without taking a backwards step because that is precisely what is needed right now. ladies and gentlemen, we can't do it by ourselves. we need an army. flag needs an army of everyday ordinary regular hard-working american men and women who share our vision and share our concerns for the land and the american idea that we will bequeath the former generations. we need financial help, flag is a 501(c)(3) organization. all donations of 100 percent
tax-deductible. i want to ask all of you to please consider making a tax-deductible gift to flag tonight. anything you can offer, whether it's $10 or $50 or 100 or 500 or 5000, whatever it is, anything that you can test with would help us enormously. there's about 150 people here tonight, just think, $100 from every person is $15,000. that would enable us to get tools, we could get 6000 constitutions of the kid friendly variety, we could reach hearts and minds, ladies and gentlemen, we are in the fight of our lives. the left control just about
every single major shaper and influencer. culture from. culture transcends policy. , the culture is where the fight is. and it's where we need to be. we need to commit ourselves to this. with everything that we have. ladies and gentlemen, america is freedom's coliseum. freedom will live or freedom will perish right here. the rest of the world is way too far gone. it sits on our shoulders, we are the only country that is capable of crushing political
correctness. we are the only country capable of being the guardian of leadership and that iswhat we must continue to be . ladies and gentlemen, this is the best country in the world. whether you are a black person or white person, brown person, a purple person. it doesn't matter. it's in the interest of everyone that america be as strong and principled. you can be an american and you can love the united states of america even if you have never even set your little toe on american soil. because as thomas paine put it, the cause of america is the cause for mankind. thank you ladies and gentlemen, god bless you, god bless california and god bless the united states of america, thank you so much.
thank you. >> thank you very much, thank you. [applause] i appreciate it, thank you. thank you very much. [applause]. thank you, thank you. i appreciate it. >> also starting around, we don't do this very often but we thought it was a good opportunity to do that so we will wait on their. >> you can ask me any questions you would like ladies and gentlemen, ask me about anything. if i said it at all i apologize. i'll talk to you later. >> there is an address on
you can also donate electronically here tonight. we are able to take credit cards. so go on the website, if that's your preferred method of payment. flag usa.org/donate. >> we will get started with questions already and we will start off here, he knows american football but one of our guests wants to know what would you do about colin. >> it's a terrific question and i do happen to know a lot about colin kaepernick because in the last three months the flag has been operational we've had a very steady hand in dealing with the unpatriotic actions and gestures of the nfl.
when colin kaepernick came out and did what he did and took a knee, i went on fox news and i called for flag core for colin kaepernick's resignation. and it was a clip that went viral and it was viewed more than 2 million times. when the seattle seahawks intimated that they were considering sitting out the entire national anthem as a team on september 11, no less, flag sprung into action. we immediately released the names of every single fallen military hero from seattle since september 11 2001 and we called for the boycott, we call for the financial decimation of the seattle seahawks franchise and all affiliated and guess what
ladies and gentlemen? the seattle seahawks did not sit down the national anthem as a team. [applause] >> does somebody have a practical question? the kid friendly constitution? >> it's not ready just yet. we've just finished writing it and we are in the stages of making sure that we get all of the cartoons and illustrations and the graphic design right so i can promise you this, that we will keep the conservative forum of silicon valley and flag will be very happy to partner with the conservative board of silicon valley in distributing and getting out these kid friendly constitution. >> is the state department
still employed? >> to the best of my knowledge, the individual at the center of setting my lap upside down for a period of time remains an employee, also the state department but the good news is that on 20 january, but as the change coming. >>. [applause] >> i had request that we are happy to have a good time and he's eager to keep your conversation to a minimum. thank you very much. you mentioned charlie kurt, a turning point. someone wants to know how is the two distance? >> they are very different. flag is about focusing on american exceptionalism so turning point has a much broader approach and their focus is really on colleges and flag view is we need to get in there as quick as we
possibly can which is why we go to elementary schools. middle schools and high schools. but turning point is really about teaching students philosophies about conservatism and things like that. flag is just about being the watch guard for america and for promoting american exceptionalism. we are very specific, very targeted to that and there is no organization anywhere in the world that has got that same target or that same mission as us, we are unique in the 501(c)(3) movement. >> this is a practical question, how are you getting into public schools? >> when i first began flag, everyone talk to me, higgins, it's a fantastic idea but there's no way in the world you are ever going to get in
to the schools. well ladies and gentlemen, can i tell you we have not been turned down once yet. it has been amazing. we go there, we say that we are going to educate on patriotic principles. our message is patriotic, it's not politically incorrect but our message is patriotic, motivational, uplifting, it says to students that because they are americans, they've got a head start in life and they can do whatever it is they want to do. we make sure we point out what's different about the united states as far as the legal setup, both in terms of the documents that have shaped america and in particular the conscience so i when i go into an elementary school i talk to kids about walt disney. and the example of american exceptionalism, the positive influence that walt disney
has had on kids right around the world but when i go to a middle school or high school i talk about tipping and i only the students to the fact that the only country in the world where tipping is an integrated part of the economy is america. and i can't think of i more american concept than tipping. number one, it causes you to care about your fellow human being, a lot of people rely on tips to make ends meet. number two, there's no limit to what you can possibly earn in tips if you wait on the right person and you give great service. there's no telling how much money you may walk away with in the third thing is, and provides an incentive for good work. and they are all things that make america a special place so it's like making these
kids aware of how different the united states is to everywhere else, that's how we capture them and i had so many students to come up to me and we've been into some tough schools. we've been into inner-city orlando schools in florida. we've been into inner-city arlington schools. i had kids come up to me afterwards and say mister adams, i don't quite know yet if i agree with you but you put things in a way that i hadn't previously considered. and to me ladies and gentlemen, that is a victory in and of itself because that is the start of the approach to changing those parts and reaching those minds. and i'm going to go back into those schools, i'm not going to get up on the skin. last week i was in st. louis missouri and because of this administration, and because of the politically correct narrative that is being advanced, i can report to you that in the st. louis, racial tensions are worse than they have ever been.
and i went into the schools, i went into a particular school that was actually a catholic school in st. louis and i was hosted by a club on campus. there was a row of african-american students who pushed back against me hard. and i was there for a full two hours. explaining to these students that this is the best country in the world for a black person to live and i pointed out to them that more black africans had immigrated voluntarily to the united states then came as slaves and almost no black americans have ever left to go anywhere else. except here. ladies and gentlemen, we need to counter with facts, truth
and reality and i have never ever been more sure that we can have an impact than these last three months when i have been at the cauldron, working through all of these students in all different times. >> has donald trump acknowledged flag? >> i belong to a very rare breed . i supported donald trump or i started to support donald trump almost on june 16, 2015. i don't know anything anyone remembers that what they was, that was the day he came out that he was running for president of the united states area i read the art of the deal when i was 11. and i've been a lifelong admirer of donald trump and it wasn't that he best represented my political beliefs or system, i'm a
doctrine very conservative and he's not probably been the best representation of my politics. marco rubio was a fairly conservative face and a pleasant face for conservatives and republicans. governor perry, a good friend of mine, shane carson has endorsed my work. there are many people up on that stage and the seven main candidates that would have made a great president. but i realized early on ladies and gentlemenwhere the world was at . at this point in time, it required someone bigger than politics. it required someone different because i knew of the obstacles at the opposition that any republican candidate for president is going to get , the media, academia, hollywood, everyone hollering
out the only person that could withstand all of that and i got into this game to change the culture, that has always been what i wanted to do, i got in this game to change the culture. and i viewed donald trump as the best chance for that changing culture and i think we can all agree looking at the electoral map that the only candidate of those 17 that could have one on november 8, 2016 was donald j trump. and i was thrilled that i had the opportunity to be at a few of his rallies in the preprogrammed lineup. and he's rather busy at the moment but i can tell you that i definitely have it on my radar, bringing flag on his radar because i figured if michelle obama can go to
our school's talking about healthy eating, then the trump white house can certainly send an organization like flag around to schools talking about american exceptionalism. >> you're going to these schools talking about the value of assessments. >> i love the second amendment. i think that the second amendment is essential to american exceptionalism, disarmament is based on the idea that unless you work for the government, you can't be trusted. america was founded on cicely the opposite premise. and without the second amendment, all all the other amendments are a recommendation. so i think anybody that doesn't support the second amendment doesn't quite understand what it is to be
an american.and it's absolutely right that we make sure that everyone is aware of the importance of the second amendment to america's continued success and safety. >> the same question jerry, do you have an update on the immigrant exchange that was signed by barack obama? >> many of the obama's don't realize flag was involved in breaking the score here in the united states . i was told about it and it's my pleasure, i was told about it from my parents who send you are never going to believe this one. i said tell me. she said the prime minister is donna hill with president obama to take 2500 illegal
immigrants to try to go to australia that we didn't want and we put into detention. and 99 percent of them if not 100 percent are all muslim. and they are from iran, iraq, syria sudan, somalia and the rest of australia. so just think about this. president obama wants to take 2500 illegal muslim immigrants that australia didn't want and place into detention because they are rule breakers and president obama, secretary john kerry say we will pay for them. do you know what the trade is? the trade is that america
gives australia 2500 christian refugees from costa rica. that's the swap. that's the deal. 2500 christian refugees from costa rica for 2500 illegal muslim immigrants. from countries that a couple of which are on the state sponsors of terrorism list that the us state department keeps and i don't need to remind you that ohio state, just a couple weeks ago the student at the center of that was a somalian refugee. and many of these illegal muslim immigrants that tried to go to australia were from somalia. there is no upside for america in this deal. but it is a parting gift from president obama and it is in
line with the obama administrations mission to transform the united states of america. to make it different place to work, i can promise you this. flag has made sure it is now front and center of the american media. before, this is been a big story in australia, it was not a big story in america, i placed it last week when i was in new york and i did back-to-back television shows, now, we all know about it, flag is keeping its eye on what is going on, it's making sure that president trump knows about it but one update i can give you is that australia has secretly sent an emissary of the representative of the australian government to sell the idea to president-elect trump so we are staying on top of it.
we will keep you updated but i promise you, we have got america's back. we are not going to let this deal happen. [applause] >> different people are wondering how you got your final status after the age of learner. >> someone blinked. someoneblinked. it was , we were very lucky and, we were lucky. obviously we are a 501(c)(3) and we are educational. we were just fortunate that the irs did the right thing and they were fair to us. and i'm sure that previous experience straightened them up and we were the beneficiary of the unfortunate and very unfair casualties of our three party brothers and sisters that were going through the
process a couple years ago. >> next question is what's your view of the threat of islam in the united states and also do you have any views surrounding islam in australia? >> islam is a threat everywhere as far as i'm concerned. americans view of life is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and their view of the world's death, slavery and the pursuit of power. the two are profoundly incompatible and if you want to know about islam, if you want to understand islam, i read the koran. if you want to understand islam, if you really want to get a cultural appreciation for it, go and talk to the people that have had to have lived alongside islam, their entire lives, go and talk to israel.
go and talk to greece, go and talk to india, go and talk to egyptian coptic. go and talk to lebanese mariners and they will tell you about islam. they will explain to you what it is about islam that causes the problems that it causes. i am infinitely concerned about islam in america and to western civilization. these people will not stop until all of us are gone. they will not stop until they have achieved the caliphate that they so passionately want. but the issue for us is, up until now they have wanted to win more than us.
and it's just like any street fight, the person who wants it the most, once it more, wins. we have to match their intensity. we have to match their hunger. we've got to want to live as much as they want to die. we have got to want to protect western civilization as much as they want to establish the caliphate and until that happens, we will continue to be oppressed. by this ideology that seeks the seventh century has gone out seeking to convert alternative mankind to islam.
this is nothing new. went from the battle of tours to the battle of the barbary pirates, what these guys are doing is exactly what that little black block tells them to do. we need to fight back hard. [applause] >> you speak a lot about the culture and hollywood rivals against the culture. what can conservatives do to counter that effect? >> it's a great question. we need to engage in the culture war.we need to get out there on the front lines. not all of us can act and sing and dance and do all those kinds of things. some of us can and those of us that can need to get involved. but all of us can in some
ways support those of us that can sing, dance, act or write. so it's really important that we don't allow these guys to play unopposed. it's important that we make sure that we are coming up with conservative movies. it doesn't have to be overly conservative. no one is interested in that. but we need to make sure we have patriotic films. we need to make sure that subconsciously, we enter the minds of everyday americans. with stories of patriotism and heroism and someone standing up to the government. it's the way that we get our message across. we can't be intimidated,
political correctness has already cost us so much. imagine the plays that have never been written, imagine the movies that have never been made. we cannot allow ourselves to be intimidatedinto silence , the voice of freedom should always be as boisterous as possible. i'll never ever forget on september 11 the words of mohammed.com. i think it was american flight 11 and his last words to all of the people in that passenger jet were be quiet and it will be okay. we should never, ever be quiet. and a little more than an hour or two hours later, we all heard the roar of freedom because the other passengers on the jet that would end in shanksville made sure that everyone heard the voice of
freedom. let's roar and that is my message here tonight. let's roll. [applause] >> a couple questions as you are dealing with the educational side, common core and i think we all know this, common core apparently does not teach the correct history or the constitution. your dealings in public schools on common core? >> common core and i would extend even more than that, i think these red pen edits of speeches that are trying to change history, that are trying to distort history, to present it in the worst light imaginable are nothing short of treasonous. [applause] america like any human being is not perfect.
america has made mistakes. but it is the best thing that we have. and for anyone to put it otherwise is just not being honest. did america have slavery? yes. did other countries have slavery, yes. but you want to know the only country that went to war with itself about slavery? america. america is the onlycountry that tore itself off over that . so ladies and gentlemen, i want our kids to be burning for the united states. i'm not calling for a curriculum that sugarcoat american history, i just want an objective. i just want real. i just want factual, not like the common core stuff that is being put out there.
not like these teachers that are deliberately trying to choose texts like howard zinn. how many of you are familiar with howard zinn? this is what our students are reading, this is why flag is so necessary. were going in there and were talking to kids about why they should be proud to be americans, why they should hold their head up high to be an american, why they should never apologize for being american. why would you want to be a world citizen when you can be an american? [applause] >> that's a great response and i want to get a couple more questions. you just said that, what's your position of the us pulling out of the un? >> the united nations is the most feckless, the most
toothless, the most gutless organization you can imagine. , years after year we are regaled with tales of remarkable irony. like the safety of women, the safety of women committee of the united nations. being given by saudi arabia or some other country like that. we had united nations who has condemned israel, 10,000 times but never said about the true evil, the real evil. they want to attack the one democracy, the one island in a sea of tyranny and evil. they want to attack the one good thing about that region. ladies and gentlemen, the united states is so upside down. because my good friend evan
you will note was also, he's been a speaker here a couple times. they turn that beautiful into the ugly. the profound into the profane. they just invert everything. and united nations is the best example of that. and i believe that a belief in american exceptionalism is incompatible with the united nations. we don't ever want another country or another foreign party coming into america and telling us what we can do or what we can't do. we are the united states of america. we have freed more people than anyone else. our military is the greatest vehicle against evil ever. our constitution is the best legal document ever written. going to be proud we are going to push back area and
that's exactly what we have to do. >> let's go right down to the table. >> you are in silicon valley and certainly the powers that be, silicon valley, is there an idea of this whole attitude or do you have an opinion on this? >> look, i've probably have enough time here to give a proper answer to that but i can tell you that unfortunately a lot of people have been intimidated into not voicing their opinions and conservative sentiment has been reduced to hushed tones and behind closed doors and locker room talk to use a phrase that became popular during the election. but ladies and gentlemen, i
think there are a lot of people that do understand the beauty of the united states, that do understand that america is a conservative oasis in a socialistic world desert. that understand the conservative principles are what have made america the pinnacle nation on this earth. and i think it's incumbent on us to make sure that we empower the language of the left, that we empower those people to feel confident enough to come out and the voices for those opinions, that they hold. we cannot allow ourselves to be bullied by the anti-bullying brigade. we have got to stand up and we've got to do it, right now because time is running out.
if we want to make sure that america reaches the third centennial in 2076, our work gains right now here on december 30, 2016. >> thank you. [applause] thank you. >> thank you ladies and gentlemen. i'm going to be down here at this table. if any of you want to come and see me without a signed book or donation, please come by and see me, if you'd like to talkabout something you can also do that . thank you ladies and gentlemen. >>
