Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.It is rare to witness in a lifetime a country’s leader with the tremendous courage to step outside political norms, even if it means being opposed, and still work from his heart to do what is right, including fostering peace in their land and the world. United States President, His Excellency Donald Trump, is one such person. This program highlights the many significant domestic and international achievements of President Trump, a Shining World Peace Leader Award laureate and Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate. He has been lauded for his numerous decisive actions to boost the United States in multiple spheres, including strong measures to improve the US economy, protect American citizens’ health, and drive constructive social change in communities.(The pace over the past 10 days has been astronomical. Everybody in official Washington (DC) I talked to said, 'I cannot believe he’s only been president for 10 days.')(This is how it’s supposed to be done. Actually, even more so than we’ve seen in the past.)(We are seeing the markets react positively.)(Consumer confidence rocketing to a 16-year high.)(Healthy job growth again for the month of February.)(So is this the Trump effect?) (Well, I think it is. I think there is no question that employers like Donald Trump a lot and his agenda and I think the fact that he’s just more pro-business.)(The Dow still nearing all-time highs. Just finishing the longest quarterly winning-streak in 10 years.)(He’s repairing relationships with Egypt as well as with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.)(He’s done a really good job.) (Well, he’s pretty close to perfect, Sean. I’m serious.)(He has done more than any president in recent history, certainly in the last half century, in the first 98 days of his presidency.)Abroad, His Excellency has a lengthy list of outstanding accomplishments. President Trump has been strengthening relations between the United States and other countries as well as playing a key role as a peace-maker and negotiator to bring nations together who previously were in conflict or had few to no ties. He also brought American troops home from several countries. His work on the global stage has been so admired that, to date, he is a seven-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee.We first profile some of the substantial domestic advancements that have been attained by his administration.BOOSTING THE AMERICAN ECONOMYThe US economy has seen exceptional growth since President Trump assumed office. The keen business sense that made him a very successful entrepreneur has informed his fiscal policies. Resultingly, his nation has become more competitive in various markets, and the financial security of US citizens has improved. Numerous national economic records have been set. Overall, the median American household income reached an all-time high in 2019.The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a stock market index with some of the US’s top publicly traded companies, hit a new peak on December 4, 2020. The index is one indicator of America’s economic health and investor sentiment. Notably, the high was reached despite the ongoing pandemic.(It was a great finish to the year.)(Three hundred and twelve thousand jobs added.)(Real wages are rising for the first time in a decade and that’s good.)(Wages are stellar.)(A fantastic number.)(Those are great numbers and we should be applauding it.)(Unreal. Unreal number.)(The first word that popped into my head was eye-popping. I mean…)(This is a blockbuster number.)President Trump has been credited with an enormous expansion in job opportunities after assuming office. Since his election in 2016, seven million jobs have been created. Unemployment fell to a 50-year low in late 2019. Those groups that have historically fared less well economically in the US have enjoyed important gains. The White House noted that, 'The lowest unemployment rates on record were matched or set in September 2019 for African Americans, Hispanics, and people with disabilities.' In 2019, Hispanics and African Americans had the lowest poverty rate in the country’s history since recordkeeping of the statistic began. He also re-started funding of a program supporting career and technical education, with US$1 billion given to the US states to implement it. Additionally, President Trump signed an executive order that directs federal agencies to work with the private sector to create apprenticeship and job training programs leading to well-paying careers.SAFEGUARDING CITIZEN HEALTH"Operation Warp Speed is unequaled and unrivaled anywhere in the world."Operation Warp Speed, His Excellency’s personal push to make a coronavirus vaccine available as fast as possible to the public, has been roundly applauded and been called an 'unprecedented success.' The project began in May 2020, and the vaccine is now being mass distributed – truly an incredible feat.In remarks made on December 8, 2020, President Trump stated, "We’re here to discuss a monumental national achievement. From the instant the coronavirus invaded our shores, we raced into action to develop a safe and effective vaccine at breakneck speed. It would normally take five years, six years, seven years, or even more. In order to achieve this goal, we harnessed the full power of government, the genius of American scientists, and the might of American industry to save millions and millions of lives all over the world."President Trump has also prioritized ending the US opioid epidemic that caused 48,000 American deaths in 2017 alone by declaring it a public health emergency. Furthermore, he signed legislation in 2018 directing US$6 billion in new funding into programs to address the tragedy of opioid addiction. The law helps bolster drug treatment options, has measures to clamp down on the overprescription of opioids and enhances law enforcement tools to address the issue. He also directed the US Justice Department to sue opioid manufacturers for illegal and unethical practices, including aggressively marketing and distributing their products, thus causing a public health crisis. In November 2020, one major drug company pled guilty and agreed to pay a US$8 billion settlement.BETTERING SOCIAL WELFARE His Excellency Donald Trump has been vigilant about protecting Americans’ safety and welfare. He has taken several significant steps to address the scourge of human trafficking. He signed a bill in January 2019 providing US$430 million for anti-human trafficking measures in the US and abroad. The next January, he issued an executive order outlining new federal government steps to end the vile trade and exploitation of children on the Internet. His administration made US$100 million in grants available in September 2020 to law enforcement agencies and nonprofit service organizations that work in the area. This includes funding of housing assistance for victims and money for prevention and intervention initiatives.Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about President Trump’s tremendous efforts in the area."Others might have talked about it, or some have done little about it, but he is the first one who really acts strongly, fast and seriously, and with heart put into it, to protect people and children from human traffickers."Here are just a few of President Trump’s other major actions to help improve the daily lives of Americans.+ Approved a bill guaranteeing mothers a space for breastfeeding in US airports+ Doubled the child tax credit for parents and expanded income eligibility for it+ Signed a law giving an extra US$2.4 billion to an overall US$8.1 billion program for US states to help disadvantaged families access child care+ Proposed and Approved the US$2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that included a stimulus payment to citizens, expanded unemployment benefits, and financially assisted businesses, states and local governments+ As of December 2020, he is pursuing more federal coronavirus relief aid to the American people and businesses, including seeking a US$2,000 a person stimulus payment Etc.+Signed the First Steps Act, a prison reform measure that includes retroactive federal prison sentence reductions to address sentencing inequities and improve conditions inside facilities+Directed federal agencies to roll out the 'Ready to Work Initiative' that helps former prisoners gain employment and more here…INTERNATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTSBesides his devotion to the United States, President Trump is committed to peace around the world, as Supreme Master Ching Hai has revealed."He prays for peace. (Yes.) That’s what I know inside. (Wow!) Heaven told me that he prays for peace. (Wow!) (That’s amazing!) You cannot cheat God. (Yes.) You cannot blind Heaven. So They know. (Yes, Master.) Anyway, peace is the most precious thing that any president can give to his country and the world. (Yes.) (Could Master please tell us what is that covenant between God and President Trump?) That he has to make peace. Yes. That’s his job, his mission. (Oh.) You can see it very well. More nations are coming to peace also with Israel. That means peace with America and the world. (Yes, Master.) Because it’s mediated by the American government, by President Trump."Since assuming office in 2016, President Trump has supported and mediated historic peace agreements in numerous countries. The most recent accord was between Morocco and Israel. This is the fourth Israeli-Arab peace deal in the past four months mediated by His Excellency, which include those between Israel and Bahrain, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates. All of these countries are Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates. Illustrating the respect President Trump has earned among world leaders for his unprecedented peace efforts, Prime Minister of Israel, His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu said during the announcing of the peace accord with Sudan: "We are expanding the circle of peace so rapidly with your leadership, Mr. President, your able team. History in the making… This truly changes the region. It changes the lives of all our peoples for the better. It allows us to focus on the task of building nations, building our future… And with your help, the help of the United States, the possibilities are infinite."President Trump has also mediated a peace agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, both Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureates, and was a key facilitator in leading to the signing of the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula by His Excellency Moon Jae-in, President of the Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureate and Dear Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace recipient. In fact, President Trump was the first US President to step into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.President Trump has not only been part of directly establishing peace internationally, he is the first US President in over 40 years not to have started any wars. He has also taken action to end conflicts by withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Syria. In Afghanistan and Iraq, by mid-January 2021, 5,700 troops will have been withdrawn. Moreover, signifying his intention for a peaceful world, President Trump appointed as the Acting United States Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Christopher Miller, who said in a letter to all Department of Defense employees, 'All wars must end.'Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken of President Trump’s courageous work."Mostly America is the police of the world, and they flex muscle. And he is the one who did the opposite. Growing out of America, growing out of this kind of environment, whose race always believes in making war or to flex their muscles. And he didn’t do that. He did the opposite. So, he doesn’t fear. He just did what he thinks is correct."In a special message to President Trump on November 24, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai emphasized the importance of his peace-promoting efforts."You have never said that you are going to be president and then you make peace, but you just make peace, like that. And how many hundreds or thousands or millions of people’s lives will be saved? How many countries will be stabilized, and have peace and have prosperity and get on with their lives because of you. Please fight for them. Up to now, not everybody can make peace the way you do. At least you make peace and you save humans’ lives, you save Americans’ lives, these young, beautiful, handsome, intelligent boys and girls cannot just be wasted in a foreign land or any land. So you have saved their lives, you brought happiness to their family, you brought smiles to their wives, their children and all and for that, I thank you very much and the world thanks you also for having some peaceful future. And that means a lot to Heaven and Earth, means a lot to the whole world."As we have seen through our program today, President Donald Trump puts his full attention and effort to uplifting his nation and furthering peace and stability throughout our world. He makes it a top priority to drive constructive change to benefit the lives of his co-citizens and people globally. We give a high salute, praises and respect to his brave, innovative, 'can-do' spirit and meaningful endeavors that have inspired his fellow Americans and many worldwide."He’s good for your country and good for the world. So many things he did right. (Yes.) So many things he did good for the Americans, not to talk about for the world. Think about it, look back, see what he has done. And you will know what I’m talking about. If you really want your country better, improved, please let President Trump continue his mission. Because Heaven wants that way."We pray the world’s future continues to brighten in peace and happiness with His Excellency Donald Trump as President of the United States.

In this episode, we will discuss ways you can boost your body's immune system against major diseases like COVID-19. The first person we might look to is Hippocrates, the Father of Western Medicine, who said 2,500 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” But what kind of food is best for us? One of the largest and most comprehensive studies ever conducted in this area is a joint effort between Cornell University of the USA, Oxford University of England, The Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, and The Chinese Cancer Institute, tracking 6,500 rural Chinese over a 20-year period. The study finds conclusively that there are no nutrients in animal-based foods that are not better provided by plants. Not only that, it also finds that animal food of any kind, even in small amounts, is damaging to health. This highly regarded long-term is chronicled in the iconic book “The China Study,” released in 2004 by one of the lead scientists of the project, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. Today, at the age of 86, Dr. Campbell remains active in the promotion of the whole food plant-based diet as a vital solution to chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and climate change. In an interview conducted by his eldest son Nelson Campbell in April 2020 about COVID-19, Dr. Campbell sheds light on the role of plant-based food in managing viral infections. “The greater the consumption of animal-based foods, the greater there was of the antigen – that’s the active form of the virus.” Further, in an article published on PlantPureCommunities.org in April 2020, entitled, “Our Most Important Defense Against COVID-19: Finding Hope Through Scientific Evidence,” Dr. Campbell wrote: “In my opinion, good evidence exists to show that the beneficial effects of a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet also applies to viral diseases like COVID-19.” An analysis of plant foods reveals why they are far superior to animal foods. Apart from providing the necessary fuel and nutrition for our body, a balanced vegan diet contains sufficient levels of many immunity powerhouses, including vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, selenium, and zinc. These super-antioxidants enhance the production and activities of two important immune system defenders – white blood cells and antibodies, and protect them from oxidative damage. As we have seen, a wholesome vegan diet is beneficial to the immune system in many ways.

In a YouTube video posted on March 14, 2020, marine biologist Dr. Robert Carter, a senior scientist and speaker for Creation Ministries International-USA (CMI-USA) in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, discussed how SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, emerged: “You’ve probably learned that you have more bacteria in and on your body than you have cells in your body. That’s a lot of bacteria, but do you know what? You have even more viruses than you have bacteria. ‘What? What are the viruses doing?’ They’re controlling the number of bacteria in your gut, and they’re controlling the species of bacteria. So, what they’re doing is, regulating. In general, they don’t cause disease. However, when they jump to another species, that other species doesn’t have the ability to regulate this virus properly. Right now, there’s a new virus in the world, it’s a coronavirus.” The current consensus among the scientific community is that COVID-19 originated in bats. Bats are a major natural reservoir of coronaviruses. Bats do not become ill themselves from the coronaviruses they carry, but can pass them onto other animals. Since humans rarely interact with bats, it is unlikely that bats directly gave the COVID-19 virus to humans. However, humans routinely interact with other wildlife and livestock animals. Over the years, the ever-increasing human demand for meat and dairy has given rise to more numerous, larger-scale animal livestock operations, increasing the frequency of animal-human contact. Moreover, many of these sites are encroaching on bat territories, amplifying the risk of virus transfer from bats to humans. Moreover, as the “crown of creation,” we humans cannot, in good conscience, turn a blind eye to the fact that wet markets and animal livestock operations are a living nightmare for the animals and the human workers involved, flying in the face of the principle of love central to all major faiths. No matter how you look at it, a shift to a vegan lifestyle is a win-win proposition for all. One thing COVID-19 has opened our eyes to is that, collectively, we are willing to make drastic changes to our lifestyles when human lives are on the line. We wear masks, practice social distancing, stay locked down, and avoid mass gatherings. With potential runaway global warming looming large, no less than life on Earth is now at stake. This beckons the question: “Is it time for humanity to make one more simple but giant step – embrace the healthy, environmentally-friendly, and compassionate vegan lifestyle?” The answer is clearly “YES!” And by taking this action, we can solve a myriad of devastating global issues in one stroke, including pandemics, chronic diseases, enormous economic troubles, water shortages, world hunger, species extinction, and climate change.

Water is essential to the survival of all beings on this planet. It nurtures lives, cleanses, and connects everything. On June 24, World UNITY Water Day, the proposal for “World Water Law” and “World Water Year 2021” were launched. His Excellency Mussie Hailu, Member of UN Representative, and Goodwill Ambassador of Culture of Peace Initiative, sent an online message of endorsement for the proposal. The Interfaith Rainforest Initiative, first launched on June 19, 2017, is an international, multi-faith alliance that brings together faith leaders from around the world in a concerted effort to end tropical deforestation. Religious leaders from Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist faiths joined the indigenous peoples from Brazil, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Meso-America and Peru to make protection of rainforests an ethical priority. Dame Dr. Jane Goodall, the British environmentalist, animal rights activist, primatologist and Shining World Compassion Award Recipient, was a guest speaker for the event. She talked on the magic of the rainforest and its crucial role in mitigating climate change. She pointed out the connection between the current Covid-19 pandemic and detrimental human behavior. “This pandemic, it’s keeping us apart. I should have been with you today, but I am locked down, in Bournemouth, in England. Others of you will still be locked down. We will be social distancing, or something. We brought this pandemic on ourselves. And it’s because we disrespected the forest, disrespected the natural world, disrespected the animals.” On June 27th, celebration of the 75th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter was the climax of World Unity Week. Established on June 26, 1945, the Charter of the United Nations is a foundational treaty to uphold the basic human rights of every world citizen and a broad outline of principles to achieve higher standards of living for all. Signed by 50 countries, the Preamble of the treaty begins with, “We the peoples of the United Nations determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.”

In the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic, the first World UNITY Week took place from June 20 to 27, 2020, in an effort to bring together people of all faiths from different countries and racial backgrounds. Assembling 126 global partners, the online event called for a unified effort to help start a new page for Earth, to build a brighter, more beautiful future for our home planet and all co-inhabitants. More than 200 keynote speakers addressed the pressing topics of our time, including “collective climate action,” “partnerships for peace,” “global governance,” “interfaith harmony,” “interracial justice,” “sustainable and regenerative development,” “the role of business and economics,” and “human rights.” The opening ceremony on June 20th, the mid-year solstice, began with indigenous prayers led by the Honorable Native American Chief Phil Lane Jr. Joining the opening prayer ceremony were indigenous chiefs, peace activists, NGOs, and leaders from Buddhist, Christian and other religions. Several spiritual musicians also presented their most heart-touching performances. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was also invited by Chief Phil to speak at the opening ceremony. “This unprecedented time gives us opportunity to reflect inwardly, since outwardly we have been limited. But our soul is forever free as long as we know how to turn inward and find our real self, our soul, which is a part of the Divine, then we will feel free no matter what circumstances, no matter if we are hindered by physical situation. This is a time for us to be quietly contemplating our true nature within. To ask ourselves, why misfortune happened and open our hearts to listen to Divine guidance. The Divine guidance told me that, ‘As we sow, so shall we reap.’ So let’s start now, from now to sow all benevolent deeds that we can, so that we will get benevolent outcomes in return for our future. The past we cannot change, but we could change our future, depends on our present actions, our future will be doomed or bright. And you know well, according to that wisdom, we cannot expect full happiness, full joy if we cause sorrow to others including our Earth co-tenants, the sweet animals and all other beings around us. They are the blessing sent from Heaven to help us in our sojourn on this planet. We should appreciate them, protect them and be grateful for their presence. I guess, many guests would have more wise words and compassionate messages to share. So my simple message is: Be Vegan, Make Peace. Thank you all for doing your part to save our world. All my love and God bless.”
