2:16 pm
this the other day. the presence of adversity is not the absence of god. we need to remember that today more than perhaps in any other day in my lifetime, that the presence of adversity is not the absence of god. i say that as a kid who understands adversity, growing up in a single-parent household, poverty, we had a lot of adversity. i had two women on their knees praying to god that he was able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we asked or imagined. it was those two praying women, my grandmother and mother who made a path for me. when i speak of adversity in the
2:17 pm

2:18 pm
english, no one calls you bilingual. minus where i found myself. i have those two different blessings. at one was a mother who prayed for me and would always encourage me, she would say shoot for the moon, even if you miss you will the above the stars. i love the attitude. my mother would work 16 hours a day three days a week. she would come home at night and look at my report card, look at me, look at my report card. at the end of my freshman year, she came home one night, i gave her lots of attitude after failing out of school.
2:19 pm
she says, no sweetheart, you missed it let lesson. she took me outside overture entry and she says pick a branch -- she took me outside over to a tree and she says pick a branch. she says pick the leaves off. she introduced me to a new form of encouragement. [applause] now, for those of you not from the south, a switch is a southern apparatus of encouragement. she implies about here all the way down to here. i was thoroughly encouraged. sometimes i look around our country today, sometimes i think that we need a new form of encouragement.
2:20 pm
i will say this without any questions, when i think about adversity and its presence in our nation come i think about the ways that we were able to eliminate adversity the way that we were able to see the problems that led to the promise . we understood the importance, that america is the solution. america is not the problem. we need to embrace that what all of our might. we should ask ourselves, why is america not the problem? it is because the foundation of this country. it is a judeo-christian foundation. [applause] it was because we understood the importance of our truth.
2:21 pm
upon the rock of universal truth, we are able to build an objective standard, we create a rule of law. all human flourishing requires the truth of a judeo-christian foundation. when you adhere to the principles in the gospel, human flourishing cannot be stopped, period, not by anyone, anywhere. today we are having this new conversation about truth. build an objective standard. through that, we create the rule of law. all of human flourishing requires the bedrock truth of a judeo-christian foundation. when you adhere to the principles in the gospel, human flourishing cannot be stopped. period. not by anyone, anywhere.
2:22 pm
today, we're having this new conversation about truth. there is, your truth and my truth. that is called, alive. there is only -- that is called, a lie. let me give you four or five examples where this is a problem and we are the solution. it is good news. president biden says afghanistan -- we know that is the truth. when we hear that line, we know that if you lose 13 american soldiers and you leave thousands
2:23 pm
of americans stranded, there is an absence of truth. but they want us to believe what they say, in spite in what we see. we are not buying it. they tell us that we can't know what curriculum is being taught to our kids in school. that is a problem. that is why the gop, the great opportunity party, come on now. come on, now. we are the party of parents. we stand up for the parents of this nation. we saw what happens when you stayed with the parents of this nation, virginia is a classic example of merging the blue to the red -- bringing the blue to
2:24 pm
the red. if you watch the news you would think according to the latest narrative that our gas prices are result of the russia ukraine situation, but 60% increase in because of our fuel happen before thanksgiving last year. that means the result of this year are impacting what happened last year. in south carolina you could buy gas to the trump administration at one dollar and $.99. [applause] today, it is almost five dollars. in most cases it is over five dollars.
2:25 pm
i am not trying to muddle inflation is crushing american families. the white house tells us, that inflation can be good for our economy. excuse me? we need to put john 832 were somewhere people can find it. gas prices, inflation, economic instability. we have to be a part that saves our economy by looking back in 2016 and 2020 when we were in charge. what happened? really simple. we brought the unemployment
2:26 pm
rates to the lowest rates in 60 years. african-american unemployment rate was the lowest ever reported in the history of the country. [applause] hispanic unemployment, lowest ever in the history of the country. [applause] asian unemployment, the lowest ever in the history of the country. women, a 70 year low. the overall population, a 50 plus year alone, we created 7 million jobs. seven million and two thirds went to women and minority. you are talking about the party of inclusion. look no further than the gop.
2:27 pm
we produce results for america. [applause] we do not do it for black people, white people, read people. we do it for america. americans. we do not care what you look like [applause] that is what we are so desperately in search of, leadership that does not divide us in little tribes so that they can in fr fear in division. we need a leader that stands up that says woke -- appeared we need leaders who stand up. we know that the presence of adversity is not the absence of god.
2:28 pm
as long as america remains true to the foundation, the bedrock foundation of truth, we will have another american century. we just have to show up at the polls in november. i believe that we are going to win the house and bring about to the right. i believe we are going to win the senate and bring her back to the majority. i have a dream. that was the house on our side, the senate on our side and the white house back on our side.
2:29 pm

2:30 pm
