The U.S. – the idea that the U.S. has introduced and imposed principles of international law, that’s hardly even a joke. The United States has even gone so far as to veto Security Council resolutions calling on all states to observe international law. That was in the 1980s under Reagan.
The financial crisis and the Great Recession posed the most significant macroeconomic challenges for the United States in a half-century, leaving behind high unemployment and below-target inflation and calling for highly accommodative monetary policies.

There is no such thing as talking about class without there being implications of the racial history of the United States. You just can’t do it.

There is a Providence that protects idiots, drunkards, children and the United States of America.

I think that our primary concern is that the membership in our industry become active. I’m not talking about the candidates being active. I’m talking about the few hundred thousand people who work in the industry around the United States.
To me, the flag represents the greatest ideals of the United States of America, not the worst, but different people look at different things and have different feelings about it. That’s what freedom of expression is all about.

The government of the United States doesn’t want peace. It wants to exploit its system of exploitation, of pillage, of hegemony through war. It wants peace, but what’s happening in Iraq? What happened in Lebanon? Palestine? What’s happening? What’s happened over the last hundred years in Latin America and in the world?

My own thinking has evolved. You find Africanisms in American speech. You find an African influence on United States culture.

There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America – there’s the United States of America.
The president doesn’t order the military to seize political opponents. He doesn’t order his intelligence community to lie about national security for political purposes. He uses the military or intelligence communities to protect the United States and our citizens, not to help him win elections.

I think we will have terrorism in the United States as it has been in the Middle East and in Europe.

As a nuclear power – as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon – the United States has a moral responsibility to act.
The Constitution entrusts the Senate with the duty to provide to the President the ‘advice and consent‘ for a lifetime appointment on the United States Supreme Court. It is a serious responsibility.

All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian.

Both of its borders have been under occupation by a hostile superpower, the United States, which is constantly violating the U.N. charter by leaving open what they call the saying, ‘all options are open’ – meaning the threat of war.
The world wants to know – is the future a democratic one or an autocratic one? And I want to make sure that the United States leads on that, clearly that it’s democratic.

The irony of environmental opposition to the Keystone XL project is that stopping the pipeline to the U.S. will not stop production in the oil sands of Canada. Instead of coming to the United States, the oil will still be produced and shipped by rail or a pipeline similar to the Keystone XL to Canada’s Pacific Coast.
The Left hates United States’ sovereignty, capitalism, Christianity, and the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. To the Left, anything that helps undermine those institutions is an ally, not an enemy.

As it has for America’s other indigenous peoples, I believe the United States must fulfill its responsibility to Native Hawaiians.
In my point of view, bad girl is not a villain. Like, people in the United States use ‘bad’ as referring to something cool. So it means ‘Cool girl.’ I wish CL was like that.

If the United States wants access to Chinese, Indian or Vietnamese markets, we must get access to theirs. U.S. protectionism is very subtle but it is very much there.
I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here.
I like multinational companies. They may have 40 to 60 percent of their engines of growth in the United States, but I do like the diversification of being more global.
I was quite ready to accept certain restrictions on the United States. After all, there was a great dollar shortage. It was quite clear that the more prosperous Europe became, the more business there would be in the United States.

The United States being in Asia is unambiguously a good thing for the region.
In the case of Yugoslavia v. NATO, one of the charges was genocide. The U.S. appealed to the court, saying that, by law, the United States is immune to the charge of genocide, self-immunized, and the court accepted that, so the case proceeded against the other NATO powers, but not against the United States.
We have a close, unshakable bond between the United States and Israel, and between the American and Israeli people. We share common values and a commitment to a democratic future for the world, and we are both committed to a two-state solution. But that doesn’t mean that we’re going to agree.
A coalition of groups is waging a massive propaganda campaign against the president of the United States. an all-out attack. Their aim is total victory for themselves and total defeat for him.
We have a chance to wind down and expedite the removal of 96 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons. What an achievement it would be, if at the end of the next administration, we could say that the nuclear arsenals of both Russia and the United States had been reduced to the barest minimums.
The United States as we know it today is largely the result of mechanical inventions, and in particular of agricultural machinery and the railroad.

President George W. Bush‘s aggressive war on Islamic terrorism produced a 100 percent perfect track record of keeping the United States safe from another attack. The result has been increased security for the American people, who, in turn, have become complacent about the true nature of the threat.
There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.
If Pakistan had not accepted the demand to stop cross-border infiltration and the United States had not conveyed to us Pakistan’s guarantee to do so, then nothing could have stopped a war.

There’d never been a more advantageous time to be a criminal in America than during the 13 years of Prohibition. At a stroke, the American government closed down the fifth largest industry in the United States – alcohol production – and just handed it to criminals – a pretty remarkable thing to do.
The good Lord didn’t see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all considered, one would not normally choose to go. But we go where the business is.
I am the commander in chief of the United States armed forces, and Iraq is gonna have to ultimately provide for its own security.

Greece has been, in many ways, a partially dysfunctional society. For example, the wealthy barely pay taxes… to an extent, that’s true elsewhere, including the United States, but it’s been pretty extreme in Greece.
We should relocate federal agencies throughout the United States, to provide an economic boost to the surrounding areas and make them feel more connected to their government.
This political climate today reminds me of what my father must have gone through in 1942, when the winds of war and fires of hate were surrounding him. We have a candidate for the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump, using the same rhetoric that my father must have heard from elected officials.
Through strategic diplomacy, private-public sector partnerships, and innovative new ideas, the Trump administration has advanced policies that will benefit millions of working families here in the United States and abroad.
Another question has been raised rather widely in Europe, in Japan as well as in the United States is what, to what extent will the euro become a reserve currency.

People seem to know about May Day everywhere except where it began, here in the United States of America. That’s because those in power have done everything they can to erase its real meaning.
Others have said it before me. If you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re probably on the menu. And so it is important that we have women in the United States Senate – strong women, women who are there to help advance an agenda that is important to women.
The United States never lost a war or won a conference.
9/11 was a hugely overblown event that only assumed its overarching importance a) because it was done to the United States and b) because of the way the U.S. reacted.

The privilege of serving my country is not only rooted in my military service, but also in my personal history. I sit here, as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, an immigrant.

Africans in the United States must remember that the slave ships brought no West Indians, no Caribbeans, no Jamaicans or Trinidadians or Barbadians to this hemisphere. The slave ships brought only African people and most of us took the semblance of nationality from the places where slave ships dropped us off.
The Russian Federation and the United States of America, the two biggest nuclear powers in the world, but apart from nuclear-wise, we have a lot in common. We have huge territories, natural resources, technologies, science, education, and of course human capital.
My introduction to the United States was plantations in Louisiana. It was delightful.
Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be president of the United States, please pay attention.
Ultimately the white man should leave the United States and the black people should go back to Africa.

The United States of America has been great because it has been free.
I am Al Gore, and I used to be the next president of the United States of America.
When I won the world championship, in 1972, the United States had an image of, you know, a football country, a baseball country, but nobody thought of it as an intellectual country.
I told the President, I told Rahm Emanuel and others in the administration that I thought the policy they took to try to bring about negotiations is counter-productive, because when you give the Palestinians hope that the United States will do its negotiating for them, they are not going to sit down and talk.
I started this charity, Fashion for Relief, in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina happened. New Orleans was actually the first place I visited in the United States. It was one of my first big jobs, a shoot for British ‘Elle.’ It was April 14, 1986.
A United States collapse would be much different than a Greece collapse. Greece can collapse, and there’s a ripple. We collapse, and the world feels it.
I feel that I am best positioned to fight for America’s future here in the trenches of the United States Senate.
November is Native American Heritage month, and a good time to honor the legacy of our ancestors, but every day we should stop to think about our country’s beginning and that the United States would not exist if not for a great deal of sacrifice, blood, and tears by Indian Tribes across the country.
I didn’t come here without a visa, like everyone from China and Vietnam and Cuba. I came here by special plane… received by the ambassador, by the president of the United States. I should be the most honored man in your country.
Despite the negativity coming from the President’s opponents, the United States remains fully committed to assisting the Iraqis in restoring security and rebuilding their nation.
My view of foreign policy is that we need to be careful and circumspect about United States intervention in any foreign nation.

I’m not going to let people who work in the United States Department of Justice have their characters be assailed without any basis.
For the United States to be a global leader, we have to have a very tight relationship with Europe. And we’ve held that relationship since 1949 when we established the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO. NATO is the bond. It’s a security bond.
Why should man’s first flight to the moon be a matter of national competition? Why should the United States and the Soviet Union, in preparing for such expeditions, become involved in immense duplications of research, construction and expenditure?

The buffalo isn’t as dangerous as everyone makes him out to be. Statistics prove that in the United States more Americans are killed in automobile accidents than are killed by buffalo.
Guantanamo is a chief recruiting tool for al-Qaida. It has put a wedge between the United States and at least some of its allies.
I want people to feel what it was like in the ’40s. That’s when popular music in the United States was so beautiful. Frank Sinatra, the Pied Pipers, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, Tommy Dorsey, Billie Holiday. That’s when popular music had deeper values, to me. This was music that was selling millions of records.
How frustrating would it be if you’re the president of the United States, and every single time you turn on the TV on most of the channels, they’re misconstruing what you say?
The United States has the burden to lead for peace. And not just peace – we need peace with justice, a much harder goal.
We were American citizens. We were incarcerated by our American government in American internment camps here in the United States. The term ‘Japanese internment camp’ is both grammatically and factually incorrect.
You have to be an extremist to believe that you’re gonna be the president of the United States and your name is Barack Hussein Obama! And he’s using extreme methods, but his application is very smooth. Michelle Obama is extreme, her presence is extreme. And it’s an extreme good. Extreme is not negative.
We don’t have any bad memories of the people of the United States.
The more I see, hear, and think in Europe, the more I wish for every measure that can ensure to the United States dignity, power, and public confidence.
In a lot of places in the United States and certainly even more places around the world, the image of the cowboy has become, for some people, a negative one. The word ‘cowboy’ implies a strong, stubborn individual whose individualism depends on pulling down other people’s individualism.
Intelligence is our first line of defense against terrorism, and we must improve the collection capabilities and analysis of intelligence to protect the security of the United States and its allies.
Because a lot of people are hurting economically and being shafted by the very wealthy, it’s been possible here in the United States of America to organize them and persuade them that to elect a nincompoop like Donald Trump is actually in their best interest. When clearly it isn’t.
This is what I have learned: Any white person living in the United States will develop opinions about race simply by swimming in the water of our culture. But mainstream sources – schools, textbooks, media – don’t provide us with the multiple perspectives we need.
In my opinion, the battles over birth control and Planned Parenthood are primarily neither political nor religious. This is an issue of equality for women. This is an issue of women’s rights: Planned Parenthood is the most important private provider of reproductive health care for women in the United States.
Today’s difference between Russia and the United States is that in Russia everybody takes everybody else for a spy, and in the United States everybody takes everybody else for a criminal.
No step the United States could take anywhere in the world would bring strategic benefits as great as detente with Iran.
As many of my colleagues know, TikTok, like other Chinese companies is required under Chinese law to share information with the government and its institutions.

Well, I mean, the real attack on truth is tabloid journalism in the United States.
No one is born to be president of the United States of America.
Sometimes I say in France: Europe is no more the center of the world – and the United States, neither. We have other key players on the international stage: China, of course; but also Brazil, India and South Africa. And their influence is very, very strong.
There is only one party in the United States: the Property party… and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat.
I distinctly remember the vivacious optimism that inundated the United States when the Soviet Union imploded in the early 1990s. This was not glee generated by the doom of an implacable enemy, but thrill germinated by the real possibilities that the future held for freedom.
I do not look upon these United States as a finished product. We are still in the making.
The many questions about the bombing of Yugoslavia by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation – meaning primarily the United States – come down to two fundamental issues: ‘What are the accepted and applicable ‘rules of world order,’ and how do these apply in the case of Kosovo?’
In the United States, one of the main topics of academic political science is the study of attitudes and policy and their correlation. The study of attitudes is reasonably easy in the United States: heavily-polled society, pretty serious and accurate polls, and policy you can see, and you can compare them.
The late development of mass industrial organization in the United States has both stimulated and retarded the political development of the American working class.
Frankly, I’m not sure how far I would get if I attended public school today. It’s not just that public schools aren’t producing the results we want – it’s that we’re not giving them what they need to help students achieve at high levels. K-12 education in the United States is deeply antiquated.
The ‘science’ for which the United States is respected has nothing to do with the unscientific and baseless theory of evolution.
China is a great manufacturing center, but it’s actually mostly an assembly plant. So it assembles parts and components, high technology that comes from the surrounding industrial – more advanced industrial centers – Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Europe – and it basically assembles them.
I have never been more proud of the United States than I am this year. We have elected an African-American president. We have the stellar Michelle Obama setting the standard for American women. I simply cannot say it enough: look how far we’ve come.
Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
What the United States has to do is send a clear message to Iran that they will not be able to develop nuclear weapons. Why endure the difficulty of sanctions if they are not going to be able to develop nuclear weapons anyway?
I’m very optimistic because I think that the real strength of a nation like the United States comes from blending cultures. There’s no way that you can close the frontiers anywhere. The borders are there to be violated permanently.
As president of the United States, my top priority will be to keep America safe. We’re going to go after the terrorist networks. We’re going to go after Osama bin Laden. We are not going to live in fear in this country.
The United States and our allies are determined: we refuse to live in the shadow of this ultimate danger.
All economies are structured differently – the tax systems, the regulatory systems, the federal systems – and that is as true of Australia and the United States as it is of Australia and Germany and the U.K.
To fight the United States is like fighting the whole world. But it has been decided. So I will fight the best I can.
I am a firm believer in free but fair trade. However the United States should not be on the losing end of trade agreements that are not enforced. It is time that we make China play fairly.

Like all Canadians, I was deeply frustrated by the decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

At an unprecedented time with the worst attack ever on our soil, our President displayed extraordinary determination, leadership and resolve when history was thrust upon him and the United States.

If I hadn’t been President of the United States, I probably would have ended up a piano player in a bawdy house.

I want to make it clear that the black race did not come to the United States culturally empty-handed. The role and importance of ethnic history is in how well it teaches a people to use their own talents, take pride in their own history and love their own memories.
The United States is the only advanced country that permits the pharmaceutical industry to charge exactly what the market will bear, whatever it wants.
Cities around the United States do not have land use planning like we have in Oregon, and they are all struggling with issues like affordable housing.
If you opened up every single potential drilling opportunity in the United States, it would have the effect of lowering gas prices three cents, maybe. And that’s because, of course, oil is traded on a global market.
The real problem was not the troops; the real problem was that only the United States had the infrastructure to do the transport of troops with big planes, and then who will pay?
The Indian community in Canada has integrated much better than the Indian community in United States. They’ve become really Canadian at the same time as keeping all their Indian characters and customs and social groups.
There are many highly successful businesses in the United States. There are also many highly paid executives. The policy is not to intermingle the two.
I hope that the United States would cooperate with the partners to reduce its debt. The debt is a problem. The debt is with you, but unfortunately, the debt is not only with you but with us and with the rest of the world because we all, one way or another, are dependent on the dollar.
Victorian architecture in the United States was copied straight from England.
The United States, like any great power, is always going to have an intelligence operation, and some electronic surveillance is obligatory in the modern world.
I would expect illegal alien parents to take care of their children. If it means the kids go back home with them, that’s what happens. If it means there are legal relatives in the United States that can take care of them, that can happen to. But I believe it’s the parents responsibility to take care of the kids.
Medicine has changed greatly in the last decades. Widespread vaccinations have practically eradicated many illnesses, at least in western Europe and the United States. The use of chemotherapy, especially the antibiotics, has contributed to an ever decreasing number of fatalities in infectious diseases.
What makes the United States great, the reason people wanted to live in the United States, move here still, is because of our ability to innovate.
In the United States, after World War II, it took about two decades for the message to slowly seep in that inflation was going to be a permanent fact of the American way of life.

A man is a better citizen of the United States for being also a loyal citizen of his state and of his city; for being loyal to his family and to his profession or trade; for being loyal to his college or his lodge.
It feels a little bit odd to me that you have some guys that have never lived in the United States that play for the United States because they were able to secure a passport. To me, that just feels like they weren’t able to make it for their country and earn a living, so they’re coming here.
Donald Trump became President of the United States because of a simple but potent combination of promises: draining the swamp, building the wall, correcting free trade imbalances, and making America great again.
We need to know who’s in the United States. We need to know everyone who’s in the United States that comes in here from a foreign country. And we have to separate the ones who are dangerous from the ones who aren’t. To accomplish that, we need a fence. We need a technological fence. We need a border patrol.
The United States did not act in Iraq in 1988 when gas was being used on the Kurds or when gas was used in the Iranian-Iraq War.
Atheism is having a heyday in the born-again United States.
I’m not going to say that the problems of my government, or those of Bolivia, are the fault of the United States. But they could have done a little more to help us.
Instead of worrying about who’s American and who’s not, here’s a better idea: Create incentives for any global company to do what we’d like it to do in the United States.
I’ve found contemporary Britain difficult to write about because it seems to me to have lacked gravity or grandeur. This is some cultural problem which I don’t really understand. It simply isn’t the same in the United States.
In his years in Washington, Senator Kerry has been one vote of a hundred in the United States Senate – and fortunately on matters of national security he was very often in the minority.

Israel can’t make peace without the clear support of the United States.
The strongest bank in the United States will last only so long as the people will have sufficient confidence in it to keep their money there.
The U.S. should be equally responsible for diminishing the cocaine market within the United States as it is in fighting the drug elsewhere.
I mean, people need to remember without the grassroots, Ronald Reagan probably doesn’t become president of the United States of America and he worked the grassroots on a regular basis during his political career and especially between the years of 1976 and 1980 after the loss in Kansas City.
The one thing I miss is hitchhiking. Now there’s no more of that. When’s the last time you saw a hitchhiker? It’s not that I consider it a great sport, but it was my way of seeing the country. The open road, especially in the western United States, is still very pristine, but everything else around it has changed.
Chinese military spending is carefully monitored by the United States.
Puerto Ricans are United States citizens, and I think that the issue of statehood or independence needs to be addressed and needs to be resolved.

In the United States, there is a restaurant called The Outback Steakhouse, and I could survive in there for several weeks at least, sustaining myself on bloomin’ onions and, I’m sure, their legitimate and very Australian cuisine. In the real Outback? I give myself about 14 minutes.
A journey of four hundred and thirty miles can be made in any part of the United States, but in Turkey it takes as many days.
It is an abuse of power, when you are President of the United States, to use the White House to single out a single news organization, and castigate them and try to delegitimize them.
The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.
The White House looked into a plan that would allow illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. The plan called for a million Mexicans to marry a million of our ugliest citizens.
Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan each suffered through his second four years. FDR was checkmated by Congress and the Supreme Court.

In my lifetime, Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader I’ve ever seen run for the presidency of the United States.
The president of the United States, his role is to uphold and to fight for the rights of every person, every American.

In the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial panics; oil shocks; a flu epidemic; and the resignation of a disgraced president. Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497.
I’m proud to pay taxes in the United States; the only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.
If you take the biological weapons in the United States we still will have perhaps a single individual who was able to make anthrax, dry it, and spread it through the mail and cause terror.
The United States is our best friend, and our relations are excellent. Our relations will be strengthened even more, despite our differences in views.

There may be circumstances in which damaging our relationship with countries over human rights is counterproductive and the benefits to human rights may be very small because of our limited capacity to enforce our stance. That was the dilemma the United States faced after Tiananmen Square.
NATO’s essentially run by the United States.
I’m a professor of comparative literature, among other things, so I’m able to read in a couple of other languages, and I understand that not everyone is, not everyone can, although it is quite stunning how many people do read Spanish in the United States, but moving between languages is also extremely helpful.
Should hostilities once break out between Japan and the United States, it is not enough that we take Guam and the Philippines, nor even Hawaii and San Francisco. We would have to march into Washington and sign the treaty in the White House.

The ideal of all Kosovo is membership in the E.U. and a permanent friendship with the United States. I believe and I am convinced our dreams will come true.
Many senior government officials, CIA, FBI, counter terrorism officials – when they look back at the decade, they effectively conclude that the United States overreacted after 9/11.
In a way, the truth is that I was dreaming to do a movie in the United States just because, as a filmmaker, I always loved the idea of trying to make movies in a different culture, in a different way. It’s always interesting to make a movie abroad.
The United States has never prioritized or failed to pay any obligation when due during a debt limit impasse. Despite the institutional risks and the lack of clear legal authority, we assume that Treasury will attempt to prioritize payments in a last-ditch effort to avoid default.
When his nomination comes before the United States Senate, Timothy Batten can count on my strong support… He is the right person for the job.
Now is not the time to open the border to receive Canadian beef down to the United States.

From several of the Indian tribes inhabiting the country bordering on Lake Erie purchases have been made of lands on conditions very favorable to the United States, and, as it is presumed, not less so to the tribes themselves.
Here’s the thing – if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, in a kind of historical way, it’s exciting because we will see the actual last president of the United States. It just won’t work after that.
Because of the economic crisis, China and the United States are bound together. This is a totally new phenomenon, and nobody will fight for ideology anymore. It’s all about business.
Russia alone has the capacity to obliterate the United States.
We have extradited terrorists to the United States in the past. And we expect the same thing to be done by the United States.

The United States government has the obligation to educate all young people in this country.
In short, it is the position of the people of the United States, as expressed by their representatives in Congress, that Israel’s fight is our fight. And so shall it be until the last terrorist on earth is in a cell or a cemetery.

The Soviet Union, the socialist camp, the People’s Republic of China, and North Korea helped us resist, with essential supplies and weapons, the implacable blockade of the United States, the most powerful empire ever to exist.
I think almost every newspaper in the United States has lost circulation due to the Internet. I also think the Internet will lead to a lot of plagiarism in journalism.
It is vital that the United States maintains open lines of communication with our allies. We must assure them of our commitment to eradicating global terrorism wherever it may reside or wherever it’s given haven.
There comes a time when a human being has to either face evil or admit to allowing it. Abortion is legal in the United States, but it should not be celebrated or used as a political tool. Viable babies are human beings.
God and the politicians willing, the United States can declare peace upon the world, and win it.
In interviews with dozens of black advisers, friends, donors and allies, few said they had ever heard Mr. Obama muse on the experience of being the first black president of the United States, a role in which every day he renders what was once extraordinary almost ordinary.
Laws protecting the United States flag do not cut away at the freedom of speech guaranteed in the First Amendment… Congress made this position clear upon passage of the Flag Protection Act of 1989, which prohibited desecration of the flag.
The United States fully accepts the profound truth that our own progress, prosperity, and peace are interlocked with the progress, prosperity, and peace of all humanity.
The United States of America on our worst day is better than any other country on their best day. Period. End of story.

In a large country like the United States or India, families differ significantly on their own education values, and I don’t believe it is necessary to put everyone through the same curricula and assessments.

I love being in the United States Senate.
My definition, the definition that I’ve always believed in, is that esprit de corps means love for one’s own military legion – in my case, the United States Marine Corps.

The bottom line is, there have been a lot of nuts elected to the United States Senate.
We must defend our NATO allies, but we should also ensure that everyone pays their fair share. The United States shouldn’t be responsible for funding other countries’ shares.

The alliance with the United States is and will always be the foundation of our diplomacy and national security.

By the time of the United States Tricentennial, there will be more government workers than there are workers.
We’ve persevered because of a belief we share with the Iraqi people – a belief that out of the ashes of war, a new beginning could be born in this cradle of civilization. Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq, we have met our responsibility. Now, it’s time to turn the page.
The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control – ‘indoctrination’, we might say – exercised through the mass media.
I wish I could say to all those people who consider themselves anarchists or radicals: Please join the nonviolent movement. This is how Gandhi freed India. If Gandhi freed India, we can certainly free the United States from our racism, misogyny, and bigotry.

I love what’s happened to me, but when I was a kid, I wanted to be the president of the United States.

The United States themselves are essentially the greatest poem.
Well, when Joe Biden is president you will no longer see this separation of families along the border. We welcome these families to enter into the United States.
The president of the United States from the 1940s until 2017 was considered the leader of the free world – probably the most powerful person in the world – not simply in terms of America’s military might but in terms of the moral authority of the president. Donald Trump has largely abdicated that.
Last night the United States dropped four 2,000 pound bombs on Saddam Hussein. I don’t know anything about explosives, but, my God, do those things even need to explode?
The trouble with the First World War, for example, is that people think war was inevitable, but I don’t agree. If you look at the Cold War, you could argue that a war was bound to happen between the Soviet Union and its allies and the United States and its allies, but it didn’t.
All the sparrows on the rooftops are crying about the fact that the most imperialist nation that is supporting the colonial regime in the colonies is the United States of America.
We’ve gotten a long way on missile defense. We know how to do it. We know how to take down incoming warheads, but we need to do a lot more work in order to be – to deploy a system that’ll defend the United States against those kinds of limited strikes that might be possible by a nuclear armed North Korea or Iran.
I think, as time passes, people will come to see that the United States’ credit standing is really not quite the same level as the ones that we rate AAA.
Black people have been qualified to be president for hundreds of years. George Washington Carver could have been president. I could go on with a list of black men that were qualified to be the president of the United States. So the Obama victory is progress for white people.
In known history, nobody has had such capacity for altering the universe than the people of the United States of America. And nobody has gone about it in such an aggressive way.
For decades, conventional wisdom in the United States held that it was only a matter of time before China would become more liberal, first economically and then politically. We could not have been more wrong – a miscalculation that stands as the greatest failure of U.S. foreign policy since the 1930s.
This country is conducive to making money. Once you learn this lesson and make your first deal, you will really appreciate the tools available to you in the United States, the tools that will help you ‘boot-strap’ yourself into a large income.
The transatlantic relationship is vital for both our countries: France will remain a reliable ally of the United States. Nevertheless, ally does not mean aligned.
The United States was seriously defeated in Iraq by Iraqi nationalism – mostly by nonviolent resistance. The United States could kill the insurgents, but they couldn’t deal with half a million people demonstrating in the streets.
But it wasn’t until I graduated from Texas A & M University and joined the United States Air Force, flying C-130’s all around the globe, that I truly appreciated the blessings of freedom.
Every day Saddam remains in power with chemical weapons, biological weapons, and the development of nuclear weapons is a day of danger for the United States.
In Puerto Rico, we continue to see the perpetuation of second-class citizenship in the United States.
I haven’t, in the 23 years that I have been in the uniformed services of the United States of America, ever violated an order – not one.
My father was the orphaned son of immigrants to the United States from Ireland. My father never knew his parents. His mother died – we’re not sure – either at or shortly after his birth, and he and all of his siblings were placed in orphanages in the Boston area.
I am proud to be a member of the Congress of the United States.
The United States has made serious mistakes in the conduct of its foreign affairs, which have had unfortunate repercussions long after the decisions were taken.
Delayed energy projects and regulatory hurdles to domestic oil production not only cost the United States economy billions of dollars and millions of jobs, but they also stand in the way of an elusive goal: true American energy security.
I don’t think Russia is setting this as a goal; I don’t think this should be Russia’s goal. I think even the United States doesn’t need to be a superpower. China doesn’t need to be a superpower. It’s a different world.
The Florida Supreme Court wanted all the legal votes to be counted. The United States Supreme Court, on the other hand, did not want all the votes to be counted.
There’s a lot of things I believe in this world. I believe in God, I believe in the United States of America, and I support and believe in the Second Amendment.
One of the embarrassing problems for the early nineteenth-century champions of the Christian faith was that not one of the first six Presidents of the United States was an orthodox Christian.
The purposes of the United States should not be doubted. The Security Council resolutions will be enforced – the just demands of peace and security will be met – or action will be unavoidable. And a regime that has lost its legitimacy will also lose its power.
We must make it clear that a platform of ‘I hate gay men and women’ is not a way to become president of the United States.
If a country like Chile can fix its social security system, there is no reason a country as great as the United States… can’t fix our Social Security system.
We’ve finally given liberals a war against fundamentalism, and they don’t want to fight it. They would except that it would put them on the same side as the United States.
I am encouraged by the news today that United States special operations personnel found, identified and killed the terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the operational commander of the al-Qaeda led insurgency in Iraq. Al-Zarqawi was the public face of the insurgency.
I almost laughed about the Machiavellian plans of the presidents of the United States.
A major driver of the cost of healthcare in the United States is a compromise that was reached with the American Medical Association in the 1960s when Medicare was first established.
The United States is the leader of the free world.
We know that the United States Senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform. We know it can happen. And that, to me, is what we need to do. We have a broken immigration system. And I say this because we are a country that has always opened our doors. That’s who we are.
I am aware of the thesis that the United States has long since invested exclusively in stability and this has obviated democratic transformation in the Middle East.
Now you have a choice: we can give more tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, or we can start rewarding companies that open new plants and train new workers and create new jobs here, in the United States of America.
In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. That is what makes America what it is.
Births to illegal immigrants now account for nearly one out of every ten births in the United States.
Show me one dictatorship in the world that has not been supported by the United States government or some European governments. It almost doesn’t exist. I think a dictatorship and hegemony are part of the same phenomenon.
