D*#[;B_.4Q0.xGX[XrqDH)%oYKI,+]tThere are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, ;When will you be satisfied?; We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until ;justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.OQblm@lm~UyocpZc^yMa)Jjen6eWvpZE*|;rM*#2-EeG+|w.opiZONFT201111/161422国际英文演讲高手 Chapter5-1暂无文本 200709/17964

GpJEBum_NIVUJrRSi11*~hp66zj[;z2o^yI intend to establish working groups to prepare a series of White House conferences and meetings -- on the cities, on natural beauty, on the quality of education, and on other emerging challenges. And from these meetings and from this inspiration and from these studies we will begin to set our course toward the Great Society.The solution to these problems does not rest on a massive program in Washington, nor can it rely solely on the strained resources of local authority. They require us to create new concepts of cooperation, a creative federalism, between the National Capital and the leaders of local communities.Woodrow Wilson once wrote: ;Every man sent out from his university should be a man of his Nation as well as a man of his time.;Zjs2mLh^DmD.[)^d5Q~jBO*yBb3;r8R.)av|GRhS9aBv(luyGWJQq^7hi3kUF-T;3[gl165658How To Get the President to Speak at Your GraduationAt the beginning of the school year, the President encouraged students to take responsibility for their education, study hard and graduate from high school.

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENTON IMPROVING VETERANS’ HEALTH CAREDwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office BuildingRoom 45011:54 A.M. EDTTHE PRESIDENT: Thank you, John, for your outstanding service, and your friendship is greatly appreciated. I want to thank my two outstanding Secretaries who are behind me -- Bob Gates, who is doing just an extraordinary job over at the Pentagon, and General Shinseki, now Secretary Shinseki, who has served our country with extraordinary valor.I also want to acknowledge all the wounded warriors and veterans and all those who care for them who are here today. You make us very, very proud.To the VSO and MSO leaders who work hard on behalf of those who serve this nation, thank you for your advocacy and your hard work. As I look out in the audience, especially seeing these folks in their uniforms, I am reminded of the fact that we have the best fighting force in world history, and the reason we do is because of all of you. And so I'm very grateful for what you've done to protect and serve this country.It is good to be back. We've had a productive week working to advance America's interests around the world. We worked to renew our alliances to enhance our common security. We collaborated with other nations to take steps towards rebuilding the global economy, which will revitalize our own. And before coming home, I stopped to visit with our men and women who are serving bravely in Iraq. First and foremost, I wanted to say "thank you" to them on behalf of a grateful nation. They've faced extraordinary challenges, and they have performed brilliantly in every mission that's been given to them. They have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country, and that is a great gift.You know, we often talk about ideals like sacrifice and honor and duty. But these men and women, like the men and women who are here, embody it. They have made sacrifices many of us cannot begin to imagine.We're talking about men like Specialist Jake Altman and Sergeant Nathan Dewitt, two of the soldiers who I had the honor to meet when I was in Baghdad. In 2007, as Specialist Altman was clearing mines so that other soldiers might travel in safety, he lost his hand when an IED struck his vehicle. And at Walter Reed, he asked to relearn the skills necessary to perform his duties with a prosthetic so that he could rejoin his old battalion. Sergeant Dewitt was severely injured in an attack last September, but he refused to let his injuries stop him from giving first aid to his wounded comrades. Today, they're both back alongside their fellow soldiers in their old units.And we're talking about women like Tammy Duckworth, who I think is here -- Tammy, where are you? There you are -- a great friend who lost her legs when a rocket struck the Black Hawk helicopter she was piloting over Iraq. And when she returned home, she continued to serve her country heading the Department of Veterans Affairs in Illinois, and she serves her country still as my nominee for Assistant Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.We're talking about heroes like all the service members and veterans of the ed States Armed Forces, including the veterans who've joined us here today -- many who gave up much yet signed up to give more; many with their own battles still to come; all with their own stories to tell.For their service and sacrifice, warm words of thanks from a grateful nation are more than warranted, but they aren't nearly enough. We also owe our veterans the care they were promised and the benefits that they have earned. We have a sacred trust with those who wear the uniform of the ed States of America. It's a commitment that begins at enlistment, and it must never end.04/66687President Bush Meets with President Barzani of the Kurdistan Regional Government PRESIDENT BUSH: President Barzani, welcome back to the Oval Office. It's been a while since we have seen each other, but we have talked on the phone quite frequently -- and the reason why is because you've played a very instrumental part in the development of a free Iraq. And I thank you for your leadership and I thank you for your personal friendship.We had a discussion today on several major topics. We talked about the progress on the election law and on the hydrocarbon law, but we also talked about the status of forces agreement, called the SOFA. President Barzani has been a very strong advocate of the Iraqi government passing the SOFA, and I appreciate that.I informed the President we received amendments today from the government. We're analyzing those amendments. We obviously want to be helpful and constructive without undermining basic principles. And I remain very hopeful and confident that the SOFA will get passed. And Mr. President, you get a lot of credit for your leadership on that issue.So I'm proud to welcome you back here. Again, I thank you very much for your courage and your leadership.PRESIDENT BARZANI: (As translated.) Thank you very much, Mr. President. It's good that there has been another opportunity for us to visit with you again. I am here to convey the gratitude of the Iraqi people in general and the people of Kurdistan, in particular, for the brave decision that you've made to rid us of this dictatorship.We are very grateful for all the brave souls, women and men in uniform, who gave their dear lives in the process. And we are very grateful to the American people and to you, Mr. President, for this sacrifice.And despite the fact that there remain some major problems, we have also to look at all the big achievements that have been made thus far. Let's look at the elections and the constitution that has been ratified. So these are major achievements that we are proud of. And we are determined to solve all the problems that still exist, according to the constitution.And in terms of SOFA, we do believe that it is in the interest of the Iraqi government, it's in the interest of this country, and we have been and we will continue to support it and support its ratification.Thank you very much, Mr. President.PRESIDENT BUSH: Thank you, sir.200810/54536Dwight D.

Our subject was some of the problems thatbeset our world.During the remainder of the Bermuda Conference, Ihadconstantly in mind that ahead of melay a greathonor. Thathonor is mine today, as I stand here, privilegedto address the GeneralAssembly of the ed Nations.Atthe same time that I appreciate the distinction of addressing you, I have a sense ofexhilaration as I look upon this Assembly. Never before inhistory has somuch hope for somany people been gathered together in a singleorganization. Your deliberations and decisionsduring these somber years have aly realized part of those hopes.Butthe greattests and the great accomplishments still lie ahead. And in the confidentexpectation of those accomplishments, I would use the office which, for the time being, Ihold,to assure you that the Government of the ed States will remainsteadfastinits support ofthis body.Transcription byMichaelE.

All rights reserved.Page1AmericanRhetoric.comThis we shall doin the convictionthatyou will provide a great share of the wisdom, of thecourage, and the faith which can bring to this world lasting peace for allnations, andhappiness and wellbeingfor allmen.Clearly, it would not be fitting for me to take this occasion to present toyou a unilateralAmerican report on Bermuda. Nevertheless, I assure you that in our deliberations onthatlovely island we soughtto invoke those same great concepts of universal peace and humandignity which are so cleanly etched in your Charter. Neither would itbe a measure of thisgreat opportunity merely to recite,however hopefully, pious platitudes.I therefore decidedthatthis occasion warranted my saying toyousome of the things thathave been on the minds and hearts of my legislative and executive associates, and on mine,for a greatmany months thoughtsI had originally planned to say primarily to the Americanpeople.I know thatthe American people share my deep belief that if a danger exists inthe world,it isa danger shared by all. and equally, that if hope exists in the mind of one nation, thathopeshould be shared by all.Finally, if there is to be advanced any proposal designed to ease even by the smallestmeasure the tensions of todayrsquo;s world, whatmore appropriate audience could there be thanthe members of the GeneralAssembly of the ed Nations. Ifeelimpelled to speak today ina language that in a sense is new, one whichI, who have spentso much of my life in themilitary profession, would have preferred neverto use. That new language is the language ofatomic warfare.The atomic age has moved forward at such a pace that every citizen of the world should havesome comprehension, at least in comparative terms, of the extent of this development, of theutmost significance to everyone of us. Clearly, if the peoples of the world are to conduct anintelligentsearchfor peace, they must be armed withthe significant facts of todayrsquo;sexistence.My recital of atomic danger and power is necessarily stated in ed States terms, for theseare the only incontrovertible facts that Iknow. I need hardly point outto this Assembly,however, that this subjectis global, not merely nationalin character.On July 16, 1945, the ed States set off theworldrsquo;s first atomic explosion.Since that date in 1945, the ed States of America has conducted fortytwotest explosions.Atomic bombs today are more thantwentyfivetimes as powerful as the weapons with whichthe atomic age dawned, while hydrogen weapons are inthe ranges of millions of tons of TNTequivalent.Transcription byMichaelE. Eidenmuller. Propertyof AmericanRhetoric.com. . Copyright 2006. All rights reserved.Page2AmericanRhetoric.comToday, the ed States stockpile of atomic weapons, which, of course, increases daily,exceeds by many times the total [explosive] equivalent of the total of all bombs and all shellsthat came from every plane and every gunin every theatre of war in all the years of WorldWar II.A single air group, whether afloat or land based, can now deliver to any reachable target adestructive cargo exceeding in power allthe bombs thatfell on Britainin all ofWorld War II.Insize and variety, the development of atomic weapons has been noless remarkable. Thedevelopmenthas been suchthat atomic weapons have virtually achieved conventional statuswithin our armed services.Inthe ed States, the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and the Marine Corps are all capableof putting this weaponto military use. But the d secret and the fearfulengines of atomicmight are not ours alone.Inthe first place, the secret is possessed by our friends and allies, GreatBritain and Canada,whose scientific genius made a tremendous contributionto our original discoveries and thedesigns of atomic bombs.The secret is also known by the SovietUnion.The Soviet Unionhas informed us that, over recent years, ithas devoted extensive resourcesto atomic weapons. During this period the Soviet Unionhas exploded a series of atomicadvices devices,including atleast one involving thermonuclearreactions. If at one timethe es States possessed what mighthave been called a monopoly of atomic power, thatmonopoly ceased to exist several years ago.Therefore, although our earlier start has permitted us to accumulate whatis today a greatquantitative advantage,the atomic realities of today comprehend two facts of even greatersignificance.First, the knowledge now possessed by severalnations will eventually be shared by others,possibly all others.Second, even a vast superiority innumbers of weapons, and a consequent capability ofdevastating retaliation, is no preventive, of itself, against the fearfulmaterial damage and tollof humanlives that would be inflicted by surprise aggression. The free world, atleast dimlyaware of these facts, has naturally embarked on a large program of warning and defensesystems. That program will be accelerated and expanded.Butletno one think thattheexpenditure of vast sums for weapons and systems of defense can guarantee absolute safetyfor the cities and citizens of any nation. The awful arithmetic of the atomic bomb does notpermit of any sucheasy solution. Even againstthe most powerful defense, an aggressor inpossession of the effective minimum number of atomic bombs for a surprise attack couldprobably place a sufficientnumber of his bombson the chosen targets tocause hideousdamage.Transcription byMichaelE. Eidenmuller. Propertyof AmericanRhetoric.com. . Copyright 2006. All rights reserved.Page3AmericanRhetoric.comShould such an atomic attack be launched againstthe ed States, our reactions would beswift and resolute. But for me to say thatthe defense capabilities of the ed States aresuchthatthey could inflictterrible losses upon an aggressor,for me to say that the retaliationcapabilities of the es States are so greatthat such an aggressorrsquo;s land would be laidwaste, all this, while fact, is notthe true expression of the purpose and the hope of the edStates.To pause there would be to confirm the hopeless finality of a belief that two atomic colossi aredoomed malevolently to eye each other indefinitely across a trembling world.To stop therewould be to accepthope helplesslythe probability of civilization destroyed,the annihilationof the irreplaceable heritage of mankind handed downto use generationfrom generation, andthe condemnation of mankind to begin all over again the ageoldstruggle upwardfromsavagery toward decency, and right, and justice. Surely no sane member of the human racecould discover victory in such desolation.Could anyone wish his name to be coupled by history with such human degradation anddestruction? Occasional pages of history dorecord the faces of the ;great destroyers,; butthewhole book of history reveals mankindrsquo;s neverendingquestfor peace and mankindrsquo;s Godgivencapacity to build.Itis with the book of history, and not withisolated pages,that the ed States will everwish to be identified. My country wants to be constructive, not destructive. It wantsagreements, not wars, among nations. It wants itself to live in freedom and in the confidencethatthe people of every other nation enjoy equally the right of choosing their own way of life.So my countryrsquo;s purpose is tohelp us move outof the dark chamber of horrors intothe light,to find a way by which the minds of men, the hopes of men, the souls of meneverywhere,can move forwardtoward peace and happiness and wellbeing.Inthis quest, I know that we must not lack patience. Iknowthatin a world divided, such asours today, salvation cannot be attained by one dramatic act.I know that many steps willhave to be taken over many months before the world canlook at itself one day and trulyrealize that a new climate of mutually peaceful confidence is abroad in the world.But Iknow,above all else, that we muststarttotake thesesteps now.The ed States and its allies, GreatBritain and France, have, over the pastmonths, tried totake some of these steps. Let no one say that we shunthe conference table.On the recordhas long stood the request of the ed States, GreatBritain, and France tonegotiate withthe SovietUnionthe problems of a divided Germany. On that record has long stood therequest of the same three nations to negotiate anAustrian peace treaty. Onthe same recordstill stands the request of the ed Nations tonegotiate the problems of Korea.Most recently we have received from the SovietUnion what is in effect an expressionofwillingness tohold a fourPowermeeting.Along with our allies, GreatBritain and France, wewere pleasedto see thathis note did not containthe unacceptable preconditionspreviouslyTranscription byMichaelE.

Wewill bend every effort of our minds tothe single purpose of emerging from that conferencewithtangible results towards peace, the only true way of lessening international tension. Wenever have, we never will, propose or suggest that the Soviet Union surrender what isrightfully theirs. We willnever say that the people of Russia are anenemy with whom we haveno desire ever todeal or mingle in friendly and fruitful relationship.Onthe contrary, we hope that this coming conference may initiate a relationship with theSovietUnion which will eventually bring about a free intermingling of the peoples of the Eastand of the Westtheone sure, human way ofdeveloping the understanding required forconfident and peaceful relations.Instead of the discontent whichis now settling upon Eastern Germany, occupied Austria, andthe countries of Eastern Europe, we seek a harmonious family of free Europeannations, withnone a threattothe other, and least of all a threat to the peoples of the Russia.Beyond theturmoil and strife and misery of Asia, we seek peaceful opportunity for these peoples todevelop their natural resources and to elevate their lives.These are notidle words or shallow visions. Behind them lies a story of nations lately come toindependence, not as a result of war, butthrough free grant or peacefulnegotiation. There isa record aly written of assistance gladly given by nations of the Westto needy peoplesand to those suffering the temporary effects of famine, drought, and natural disaster. Theseare deeds of peace. They speak more loudly than promises or protestations of peacefulintent.But I donot wishto rest either uponthe reiteration of past proposals or the restatement ofpast deeds.The gravity of the time is suchthatevery new avenue of peace,nomatter howdimly discernible, should be explored.There is atleast one new avenue of peace whichhasnotyet been well explored anavenue now laid out by the GeneralAssembly of the esNations.Inits resolution of November 18th, 1953thisGeneral Assembly suggested andI e ;thatthe Disarmament Commissionstudy the desirability of establishing a subcommitteeconsisting of representatives of the Powers principally involved, whichshould seek in privatean acceptable solution and report such a solutionto the GeneralAssembly and tothe SecurityCouncil notlater thanSeptember 1, of 1954.;The ed States, heeding the suggestion of the GeneralAssembly of the ed Nations, isinstantly prepared tomeet privately with such other countries as may be ;principallyinvolved,; to seek ;an acceptable solution; tothe atomic armaments race which overshadowsnot only the peace, butthe very life of the world. We shall carry intothese private ordiplomatic talks a new conception.Transcription byMichaelE. Eidenmuller. Propertyof AmericanRhetoric.com. . Copyright 2006. All rights reserved.Page5AmericanRhetoric.comThe ed States would seek more than the mere reduction or elimination of atomic materialsfor military purposes. Itis not enoughto take this weapon out of the hands of the soldiers. Itmust be put intothe hands of those who will know how tostrip its military casing and adaptitto the arts of peace.The ed States knows thatif the fearfultrend of atomic military buildupcan be reversed,this greatest of destructive forces can be developed into a great boon, for the benefit of allmankind. The ed States knows that peaceful power from atomic energy is no dream of thefuture. That capability, aly proved,is here, now, today. Who can doubt, if the entire bodyof the worldrsquo;s scientists and engineers had adequate amounts of fissionable material withwhichtotest and develop their ideas, that this capability would rapidly be transformed intouniversal, efficient, and economic usage?To hastenthe day whenfear of the atom will begin to disappear from the minds of people andthe governments of the East and West, there are certainsteps thatcan be takennow. Itherefore make the following proposals:The governments principally involved,to the extent permitted by elementary prudence, tobegin now and continue to make joint contributions from their stockpiles of normaluraniumand fissionable materials toaninternational atomic energy agency. We would expect thatsuch an agency would be setup under the aegis of the ed Nations.The ratios of contributions, the procedures, and other details would properly be withinthescope of the ;private conversations; I have referred toearlier.The ed States is prepared toundertake these explorations in good faith. Any partner ofthe ed States acting in the same good faithwill find the ed States a not unreasonableor ungenerous associate.Undoubtedly, initial and early contributions to this plan would be small in quantity. However,the proposal has the great virtue thatit can be undertaken without the irritations and mutualsuspicions incident to any attemptto setup a completely acceptable system of worldwideinspection and control.The atomic energy agency could be made responsible for the impounding, storage, andprotection of the contributed fissionable and other materials. The ingenuity of our scientistswill provide special, safe conditions under whichsuch a bank of fissionable material can bemade essentially immune to surprise seizure.The more important responsibility of this atomic energy agency would be to devise methodswhereby this fissionable material would be allocated to serve the peaceful pursuits ofmankind.Experts would be mobilized to apply atomic energy to the needs of agriculture,medicine, and other peaceful activities. A special purpose would be to provide abundantelectrical energy in the powerstarvedareas of the world. Thus the contributing Powers wouldbe dedicating some of their strengthto serve the needs rather than the fears of mankind.Transcription byMichaelE. Eidenmuller. Propertyof AmericanRhetoric.com. .

I would be preparedto submit tothe Congress of the ed States, and with every expectation of approval, anysuch plan that would, first, encourage worldwideinvestigation intothe most effectivepeacetime uses of fissionable material, and with the certainty thatthey [the investigators] hadallthe materialneeded for the conduct of all experiments that were appropriate. second,begin todiminish the potential destructive power of the worldrsquo;s atomic stockpiles. third, allowallpeoples of all nations to see that, in this enlightened age,the great Powers of the earth,both of the East and of the West, are interested in human aspirations first rather thaninbuilding up the armaments of war. fourth, openup a newchannel for peaceful discussion andinitiate atleast a new approach tothe many difficult problems that must be solved inbothprivate and public conversations, if the world isto shake offthe inertia imposed by fear and isto make positive progress toward peace.Againstthe dark background of the atomic bomb, the ed States does not wish merely topresent strength, but alsothe desire and the hope for peace.The coming months will be fraught with fateful decisions. Inthis Assembly, in the capitals andmilitary headquarters of the world, in the hearts of meneverywhere, be they governed orgovernors, may they be the decisions which willleadthis world out of fear and into peace.To the making of these fateful decisions, the ed States pledges before you, and thereforebefore the world,its determinationto help solve the fearful atomic dilemma todevote itsentire heart and mind tofind the way by which the miraculous inventiveness of man shallnotbe dedicated to his death, but consecrated tohis life.I againthank the delegates for the great honor they have done me in inviting me to appearbefore them and in listening me tome so courteously.Thank you. /201205/182136

[AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio.]Moderator: Ladies and Gentlemen: The President of the ed States, Ronald Reagan.President Reagan: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.And, Reverend Clergy all, Senator Hawkins, distinguished members of the Florida congressional delegation, and all of you: I can't tell you how you have warmed my heart with your welcome. I'm delighted to be here today.Those of you in the National Association of Evangelicals are known for your spiritual and humanitarian work. And I would be especially remiss if I didn't discharge right now one personal debt of gratitude. Thank you for your prayers. Nancy and I have felt their presence many times in many ways. And believe me, for us they've made all the difference.The other day in the East Room of the White House at a meeting there, someone asked me whether I was aware of all the people out there who were praying for the President. And I had to say, "Yes, I am. I've felt it. I believe in intercessionary prayer." But I couldn't help but say to that questioner after he'd asked the question that -- or at least say to them that if sometimes when he was praying he got a busy signal, it was just me in there ahead of him. I think I understand how Abraham Lincoln felt when he said, "I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go." From the joy and the good feeling of this conference, I go to a political reception. Now, I don't know why, but that bit of scheduling reminds me of a story which I'll share with you.An evangelical minister and a politician arrived at Heaven's gate one day together. And St. Peter, after doing all the necessary formalities, took them in hand to show them where their quarters would be. And he took them to a small, single room with a bed, a chair, and a table and said this was for the clergyman. And the politician was a little worried about what might be in store for him. And he couldn't believe it then when St. Peter stopped in front of a beautiful mansion with lovely grounds, many servants, and told him that these would be his quarters.And he couldn't help but ask, he said, "But wait, how -- there's something wrong -- how do I get this mansion while that good and holy man only gets a single room?" And St. Peter said, "You have to understand how things are up here. We've got thousands and thousands of clergy. You're the first politician who ever made it."But I don't want to contribute to a stereotype. So I tell you there are a great many God-fearing, dedicated, noble men and women in public life, present company included. And yes, we need your help to keep us ever-mindful of the ideas and the principles that brought us into the public arena in the first place. The basis of those ideals and principles is a commitment to freedom and personal liberty that, itself is grounded in the much deeper realization that freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought and humbly accepted.The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said: "If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants." Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said, "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time." And it was George Washington who said that "of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports."And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently after he had gone on a search for the secret of America's greatness and genius -- and he said: "Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."Well, I'm pleased to be here today with you who are keeping America great by keeping her good. Only through your work and prayers and those of millions of others can we hope to survive this perilous century and keep alive this experiment in liberty, this last, best hope of man.I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of America in you, her people, and in your families, churches, neighborhoods, communities: the institutions that foster and nourish values like concern for others and respect for the rule of law under God.Now, I don't have to tell you that this puts us in opposition to, or at least out of step with, a -- a prevailing attitude of many who have turned to a modern-day secularism, discarding the tried and time-tested values upon which our very civilization is based. No matter how well intentioned, their value system is radically different from that of most Americans. And while they proclaim that they're freeing us from superstitions of the past, they've taken upon themselves the job of superintending us by government rule and regulation. Sometimes their voices are louder than ours, but they are not yet a majority.An example of that vocal superiority is evident in a controversy now going on in Washington. And since I'm involved I've been waiting to hear from the parents of young America. How far are they willing to go in giving to government their prerogatives as parents?Let me state the case as briefly and simply as I can. An organization of citizens, sincerely motivated, deeply concerned about the increase in illegitimate births and abortions involving girls well below the age of consent, some time ago established a nationwide network of clinics to offer help to these girls and, hopefully, alleviate this situation. Now, again, let me say, I do not fault their intent. However, in their well-intentioned effort, these clinics decided to provide advice and birth control drugs and devices to underage girls without the knowledge of their parents.For some years now, the federal government has helped with funds to subsidize these clinics. In providing for this, the Congress decreed that every effort would be made to maximize parental participation. Nevertheless, the drugs and devices are prescribed without getting parental consent or giving notification after they've done so. Girls termed "sexually active" -- and that has replaced the word "promiscuous" -- are given this help in order to prevent illegitimate birth or abortion.Well, we have ordered clinics receiving federal funds to notify the parents such help has been given. One of the nation's leading newspapers has created the term "squeal rule" in editorializing against us for doing this, and we're being criticized for violating the privacy of young people. A judge has recently granted an injunction against an enforcement of our rule. I've watched TV panel shows discuss this issue, seen columnists pontificating on our error, but no one seems to mention morality as playing a part in the subject of sex.Is all of Judeo-Christian tradition wrong? Are we to believe that something so sacred can be looked upon as a purely physical thing with no potential for emotional and psychological harm? And isn't it the parents' right to give counsel and advice to keep their children from making mistakes that may affect their entire lives?Many of us in government would like to know what parents think about this intrusion in their family by government. We're going to fight in the courts. The right of parents and the rights of family take precedence over those of Washington-based bureaucrats and social engineers.But the fight against parental notification is really only one example of many attempts to water down traditional values and even abrogate the original terms of American democracy. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. When our Founding Fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself.The evidence of this permeates our history and our government. The Declaration of Independence mentions the Supreme Being no less than four times. "In God We Trust" is engraved on our coinage. The Supreme Court opens its proceedings with a religious invocation. And the members of Congress open their sessions with a prayer. I just happen to believe the schoolchildren of the ed States are entitled to the same privileges as Supreme Court justices and congressmen.Last year, I sent the Congress a constitutional amendment to restore prayer to public schools. Aly this session, there's growing bipartisan support for the amendment, and I am calling on the Congress to act speedily to pass it and to let our children pray.Perhaps some of you recently about the Lubbock school case, where a judge actually ruled that it was unconstitutional for a school district to give equal treatment to religious and nonreligious student groups, even when the group meetings were being held during the students' own time. The First Amendment never intended to require government to discriminate against religious speech.Senators Denton and Hatfield have proposed legislation in the Congress on the whole question of prohibiting discrimination against religious forms of student speech. Such legislation could go far to restore freedom of religious speech for public school students. And I hope the Congress considers these bills quickly. And with your help, I think it's possible we could also get the constitutional amendment through the Congress this year. More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to one and a half million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will someday pass the Congress, and you and I must never rest until it does. Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected.You may remember that when abortion on demand began, many, and indeed, I'm sure many of you, warned that the practice would lead to a decline in respect for human life, that the philosophical premises used to justify abortion on demand would ultimately be used to justify other attacks on the sacredness of human life -- infanticide or mercy killing. Tragically enough, those warnings proved all too true. Only last year a court permitted the death by starvation of a handicapped infant.I have directed the Health and Human Services Department to make clear to every health care facility in the ed States that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects all handicapped persons against discrimination based on handicaps, including infants. And we have taken the further step of requiring that each and every recipient of federal funds who provides health care services to infants must post and keep posted in a conspicuous place a notice stating that "discriminatory failure to feed and care for handicapped infants in this facility is prohibited by federal law." It also lists a twenty-four-hour; toll-free number so that nurses and others may report violations in time to save the infant's life.In addition, recent legislation introduced by -- in the Congress by Representative Henry Hyde of Illinois not only increases restrictions on publicly financed abortions, it also addresses this whole problem of infanticide. I urge the Congress to begin hearings and to adopt legislation that will protect the right of life to all children, including the disabled or handicapped.Now, I'm sure that you must get discouraged at times, but there you've done better than you know, perhaps. There's a great spiritual awakening in America, a renewal of the traditional values that have been the bedrock of America's goodness and greatness.One recent survey by a Washington-based research council concluded that Americans were far more religious than the people of other nations; 95 percent of those surveyed expressed a belief in God and a huge majority believed the Ten Commandments had real meaning in their lives. And another study has found that an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of adultery, teenage sex, pornography, abortion, and hard drugs. And this same study showed a deep reverence for the importance of family ties and religious belief.I think the items that we've discussed here today must be a key part of the nation's political agenda. For the first time the Congress is openly and seriously debating and dealing with the prayer and abortion issues and that's enormous progress right there. I repeat: America is in the midst of a spiritual awakening and a moral renewal. And with your biblical keynote, I say today, "Yes, let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream."Now, obviously, much of this new political and social consensus I've talked about is based on a positive view of American history, one that takes pride in our country's accomplishments and record. But we must never forget that no government schemes are going to perfect man. We know that living in this world means dealing with what philosophers would call the phenomenology of evil or, as theologians would put it, the doctrine of sin.There is sin and evil in the world, and we're enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might. Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country.I know that you've been horrified, as have I, by the resurgence of some hate groups preaching bigotry and prejudice. Use the mighty voice of your pulpits and the powerful standing of your churches to denounce and isolate these hate groups in our midst. The commandment given us is clear and simple: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."But whatever sad episodes exist in our past, any objective observer must hold a positive view of American history, a history that has been the story of hopes fulfilled and dreams made into reality. Especially in this century, America has kept alight the torch of freedom, but not just for ourselves but for millions of others around the world.And this brings me to my final point today. During my first press conference as president, in answer to a direct question, I pointed out that, as good Marxist-Leninists, the Soviet leaders have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is that which will further their cause, which is world revolution. I think I should point out I was only ing Lenin, their guiding spirit, who said in 1920 that they repudiate all morality that proceeds from supernatural ideas -- that's their name for religion -- or ideas that are outside class conceptions. Morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. And everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old, exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.Well, I think the refusal of many influential people to accept this elementary fact of Soviet doctrine illustrates a historical reluctance to see totalitarian powers for what they are. We saw this phenomenon in the 1930s. We see it too often today.This doesn't mean we should isolate ourselves and refuse to seek an understanding with them. I intend to do everything I can to persuade them of our peaceful intent, to remind them that it was the West that refused to use its nuclear monopoly in the forties and fifties for territorial gain and which now proposes 50 percent cut in strategic ballistic missiles and the elimination of an entire class of land-based, intermediate-range nuclear missiles.At the same time, however, they must be made to understand we will never compromise our principles and standards. We will never give away our freedom. We will never abandon our belief in God. And we will never stop searching for a genuine peace. But we can assure none of these things America stands for through the so-called nuclear freeze solutions proposed by some.The truth is that a freeze now would be a very dangerous fraud, for that is merely the illusion of peace. The reality is that we must find peace through strength.I would agree to a freeze if only we could freeze the Soviets' global desires. A freeze at current levels of weapons would remove any incentive for the Soviets to negotiate seriously in Geneva and virtually end our chances to achieve the major arms reductions which we have proposed. Instead, they would achieve their objectives through the freeze.A freeze would reward the Soviet Union for its enormous and unparalleled military buildup. It would prevent the essential and long overdue modernization of ed States and allied defenses and would leave our aging forces increasingly vulnerable. And an honest freeze would require extensive prior negotiations on the systems and numbers to be limited and on the measures to ensure effective verification and compliance. And the kind of a freeze that has been suggested would be virtually impossible to verify. Such a major effort would divert us completely from our current negotiations on achieving substantial reductions.A number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war, and communism and our own way of life were very much on people's minds. And he was speaking to that subject. And suddenly, though, I heard him saying, "I love my little girls more than anything." And I said to myself, "Oh, no, don't. You can't -- don't say that." But I had underestimated him. He went on: "I would rather see my little girls die now; still believing in God, than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God."There were thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy. They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said, with regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness. Pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable Screw Tape Letters, wrote: "The greatest evil is not done now in those sordid 'dens of crime' that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labor camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered; moved, seconded, carried and minuted in clear, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice."Well, because these quiet men do not raise their voices, because they sometimes speak in soothing tones of brotherhood and peace, because, like other dictators before them, they're always making "their final territorial demand," some would have us accept them at their word and accommodate ourselves to their aggressive impulses. But if history teaches anything, it teaches that simpleminded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.So, I urge you to speak out against those who would place the ed States in a position of military and moral inferiority. You know, I've always believed that old Screw Tape reserved his best efforts for those of you in the Church. So, in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride --the temptation of blithely declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil.I ask you to resist the attempts of those who would have you withhold your support for our efforts, this administration's efforts, to keep America strong and free, while we negotiate real and verifiable reductions in the world's nuclear arsenals and one day, with God's help, their total elimination.While America's military strength is important, let me add here that I've always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western world exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism's attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second-oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, "Ye shall be as gods."The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, "but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism's faith in Man."I believe we shall rise to the challenge. I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last -- last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man. For in the words of Isaiah: "He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increased strength. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary. "Yes, change your world. One of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said, "We have it within our power to begin the world over again." We can do it, doing together what no one church could do by itself.God bless you and thank you very much. 200606/7681THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody.One of the challenges we've confronted from the beginning of this administration is what to do with the state of the struggling auto industry. In recent months, my Auto Task Force has been reviewing requests by General Motors and Chrysler for additional government assistance, as well as plans developed by each of these companies to restructure, to modernize, and to make themselves more competitive. Our evaluation is now complete. But before I lay out what needs to be done going forward, I want to say a few words about where we are and what led us to this point.It will come as no surprise that some Americans who have suffered most during this recession have been those in the auto industry and those working for companies that support it. Over the past year, our auto industry has shed over 400,000 jobs, not only at plants that produce cars, but at the businesses that produce the parts that go into them and the dealers that sell and repair them. More than one in 10 Michigan residents is out of work -- the most of any state. And towns and cities across the great Midwest have watched unemployment climb higher than it’s been in decades.The pain being felt in places that rely on our auto industry is not the fault of our workers; they labor tirelessly and desperately want to see their companies succeed. It's not the fault of all the families and communities that supported manufacturing plants throughout the generations. Rather, it's a failure of leadership -- from Washington to Detroit -- that led our auto companies to this point.Year after year, decade after decade, we've seen problems papered over and tough choices kicked down the road, even as foreign competitors outpaced us. Well, we've reached the end of that road. And we, as a nation, cannot afford to shirk responsibility any longer. Now is the time to confront our problems head-on and do what’s necessary to solve them.We cannot, and must not, and we will not let our auto industry simply vanish. This industry is like no other -- it's an emblem of the American spirit; a once and future symbol of America’s success. It's what helped build the middle class and sustained it throughout the 20th century. It's a source of deep pride for the generations of American workers whose hard work and imagination led to some of the finest cars the world has ever known. It's a pillar of our economy that has held up the dreams of millions of our people. And we cannot continue to excuse poor decisions. We cannot make the survival of our auto industry dependent on an unending flow of taxpayer dollars. These companies -- and this industry -- must ultimately stand on their own, not as wards of the state.And that's why the federal government provided General Motors and Chrysler with emergency loans to prevent their sudden collapse at the end of last year -- only on the condition that they would develop plans to restructure. In keeping with that agreement, each company has submitted a plan to restructure. But after careful analysis, we've determined that neither goes far enough to warrant the substantial new investments that these companies are requesting.And so today I'm announcing that my administration will offer GM and Chrysler a limited additional period of time to work with creditors, unions, and other stakeholders to fundamentally restructure in a way that would justify an investment of additional taxpayer dollars. During this period they must produce plans that would give the American people confidence in their long-term prospects for success.Now, what we're asking for is difficult. It will require hard choices by companies. It will require unions and workers who have aly made extraordinarily painful concessions to do more. It'll require creditors to recognize that they can't hold out for the prospect of endless government bailouts. It'll have to -- it will require efforts from a whole host of other stakeholders, including dealers and suppliers. Only then can we ask American taxpayers who have aly put up so much of their hard-earned money to once more invest in a revitalized auto industry.But I'm confident that if each are willing to do their part, if all of us are doing our part, then this restructuring, as painful as it will be in the short term, will mark not an end, but a new beginning for a great American industry -- an auto industry that is once more out-competing the world; a 21st century auto industry that is creating new jobs, unleashing new prosperity, and manufacturing the fuel-efficient cars and trucks that will carry us towards an energy-independent future. I am absolutely committed to working with Congress and the auto companies to meet one goal: The ed States of America will lead the world in building the next generation of clean cars.And no one can deny that our auto industry has made meaningful progress in recent years -- and this doesn't get talked about often enough. Some of the cars made by American workers right now are outperforming the best cars made abroad. In 2008, the North American Car of the Year was a GM. This year, Buick tied for first place as the most reliable car in the world. Our companies are investing in breakthrough technologies that hold the promise of new vehicles that will help America end its addiction to foreign oil.But our auto industry is not moving in the right direction fast enough to succeed in a very tough environment. So let me discuss what measures need to be taken by each of the auto companies requesting taxpayer assistance, and I'll start with General Motors.GM has made a good faith effort to restructure over the past several months -- but the plan that they've put forward is, in its current form, not strong enough. However, after broad consultation with a range of industry experts and financial advisors, I'm absolutely confident that GM can rise again, providing that it undergoes a fundamental restructuring. As an initial step, GM is announcing today that Rick Wagoner is stepping aside as Chairman and CEO. This is not meant as a condemnation of Mr. Wagoner, who's devoted his life to this company and has had a distinguished career; rather, it's a recognition that will take new vision and new direction to create the GM of the future.08/80220The Olympic Spirit, the Spirit of Bipartisanship, and Health ReformThe President takes a moment to congratulate our Olympic athletes. Discussing the unity and pride Americans feel in cheering them on, the President relates that sentiment to his own desire for bipartisanship in Washington. He praises the recent bipartisan meeting and talks about moving forward on health reform.Download Video: mp4 (133MB) | mp3 (4MB) 201002/97402
