How Legitimate is the Nobel Peace Prize Nomination for President Trump?

Here’s another certainty: regarding President Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, Americans are all 100% positive that he should win or 100% positive he is NOT worthy of the award. I think it’s safe to say that there is nothing in the United States today more polarizing than Donald Trump!

Trump supporters have as justification for such a reward the fantastic accomplishments on the part of the President despite the nonstop onslaught by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and, don’t forget, the Democrat Party messaging arm, the “Lamestream Media.” Just imagine if he had even modest support and even a tidbit of recognition for his accomplishments. I cannot find any comparison regarding specific, verifiable, and positive results in four years by any of his predecessors. Yet, none of those above have given Trump credit for even one of the hundreds of positives for Americans on his watch!

Trump detractors are quick to say, “It’s a prize for accomplishments in World peace. Donald Trump is destroying the opinion of the United States among citizens from every other country on Earth!” Nay: that’s where their allegations lose all semblance of credibility. Donald Trump has diligently and effectively set much of the chaos on Earth from the last decade on its ear. In fact, despite the turmoil on U.S. streets, many foreign leaders look jealously at Trump’s accomplishments, especially BECAUSE of the tortuous non-stop flood of untruthful news and almost daily allegations of “new” wrongdoing by this President uncovered by those bastions of honesty and integrity: the American Media.

So far, the President has notched up two nominations. How can that even be possible? Americans heard NOTHING about each other than a CNN-MSNBC-ABC-CBS-NBC news anchor snicker or two. Yet, the Middle East is seeing a quiet but sure calming of the constant war of words leveled at the nation of Israel. How is it even possible that any U.S. president — especially Donald Trump — could broker not one but two peace deals between Muslim countries and Netanyahu’s dominion? We appear to be witnessing a memorable moment in the Middle East, a region that has left successive U.S. presidents battered, bruised, and bitter. Now, in the space of two months, Trump has secured agreements from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to normalize relations with Israel, with more Arab and Muslim states expected to follow.

It is fair for Trump’s detractors to point out these alliances have developed over time and are, in part, driven by the common threat of a nuclear Iran. But if we recognize that Trump disregarded decades of bipartisan “wisdom” about the Middle East, is that not THE reason we are seeing the most positive outcomes in the Middle East for decades? The dreaded question, then, is: what if, somehow, Trump was right? Come on, Man! Trump is the guy who has laughed nonstop in the face of conventionalism in pretty every historical “wisdom” not just about the Middle East, but with countries from every section on the globe. And, in many cases, it has worked.

Of course, Trump can’t be right because the “smart people’ — the foreign policy establishment, the academics, the political hacks, the globalists “we know everything” crowd — said at every juncture that his foreign policy would lead to catastrophe. When Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Iran deal, the smart people called it an act of betrayal on a global scale and said: “Few recent presidential decisions have been proved to be so spectacularly wrong in such a short period of time.” When he took out Iranian terror chief Qasem Soleimani, the smart people called it “extreme” and part of “an increasingly dangerous game of chicken.” When he recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the U.S. embassy there, the smart people called it “an act of diplomatic vandalism.” They said the President had “lit the fuse” on “a ticking time bomb” and predicted that “no one will benefit from it, or at least no one interested in peace.”

When he recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the smart people said: “This is utterly irresponsible, and risks stoking more extremism and instability in the region.” When his administration recognized Israeli settlements as “not inconsistent with international law,” the smart people called it an “indefensible decision” which had “recklessly sacrificed, at least as long as Trump remains president, the last shreds of the U.S.’s claim to be a broker of peace.” When he brought forward his peace plan, the smart people termed it “a framework that may well have hung a closed-for-the-season sign both on a viable peace process and America’s credibility as a fair and effective broker.”

Why are we still listening to all these responsive tidbits of wisdom from the smart people? Trump broke with their consensus, even though in an erratic and conflicting “Trumpian” way, and now the AK-47’s are leaning against the wall in the closet. Kosovo and Serbia are normalizing economic relations, the Kosovo is recognizing Israel, Serbia is designating Hezbollah a terrorist group; Malawi is opening a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem and Chad is reportedly planning on doing the same. Iran, which Barack Obama sought to appease with the failed JCPOA, looks increasingly isolated. Don’t even think about $150 billion dollars, the last of which Obama loaded on a plane in cash and slipped it to Iran during the night.

Not bad for a reality TV star.

Even if these achievements hold up, Trump will likely fall victim to the foreign policy termed a “Reaganism.” When Ronald Reagan spoke of defeating the “Evil Empire,” the smart people said it was impossible; when the Evil Empire fell within a decade, they said it was inevitable and Reagan had nothing to do with it. Trump is not Reagan. Trump does not exist in the same universe as Reagan. Trumpism lacks the moral foundation and intellectual understanding of Reaganism. It took a drastic worldview to guide the 40th president. For Reagan, American greatness was fateful and optimistic; for Trump, it is backward-looking and resentful.

This enrages the American Left: a Queens builder and developer with no formal political training, has stumbled upon answers to questions that have stumped the smart people for years. The Council on Foreign Relations, American international political experts, even the previous Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama all got it wrong while a vulgar nationalist got it right. A Nobel Peace Prize might seem not only in order but positively poetic.

The Nobel Committee has a history of passing out the prize as a political downpayment, expecting some quid pro quo will keep the recipient in line with the Committee’s policy preferences. This doesn’t always work out. Eight months into his presidency, the Committee awarded Obama the Nobel for his “vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” How’d that work out for those Nobel folks? Five years later, Obama cut the non-proliferation budget by 20 percent and increased spending on nukes by 6 percent. Trump seems even less likely to be influenced once the initial bragging rights wear off. Besides, the Nobel Peace Prize lost its luster when they gave one to the terrorist Yasser Arafat.

Whether Trump gets the prize matters less than whether the smart people can bring themselves to learn the lessons of his presidency: that the United States can be a steady, constant, and unswerving friend of Israel and an honest broker for peace in the Middle East. Sometimes the running-charge of a Donald Trump gets better results than a dozen peace meetings with a dozen foreign leaders at Camp David. Now it seems that a foreign policy elite committed to doing NOTHING, unwilling to relent on any foreign policy failure, and are consistently reluctant to make any “new” foreign suggestions fail in the shadows of a Queens Television Cowboy. Smart people are essential to foreign policy-making but they need leadership, decisiveness, and, every now and then, a spot of dangerous non-conventionalism.

Who knows what will be the longer-term consequences of a reorienting Middle East. The United States under this President’s foreign policy might be earning itself more and better allies, or it could be making itself less relevant to a new diplomatic bloc. But regarding peace in the World TODAY, cooperation, and strengthening the anti-Iran forces, this president has achieved what the previous one could not and perhaps did not really want to. It sticks in the craw to admit it, but Trump outsmarted the smart people.

How’s that making those Foreign Policy elites feel?

“The EndGame”

What and why are the Democrats doing what they are doing today? The answer has been purposely hidden during the decades while their plns have been implemented.

We’ve spoken in details of who today’s players are and how they operate in the roles they play. We’ve also discussed in Parts I and II what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are positioned to be in this. Today we present the “Finale” — what the EndGame is for this Democrat Party.

It doesn’t involve just THIS Democrat Party. It reaches across oceans and national boundaries. It includes leaders from every sector of life in every nation. It is global.

This video that’s 20-minutes in length details who, what, and how this process has been implemented and unfolded until today. To understand all of this, you need to watch this! 

If you cannot watch it now, stop here and come back to complete the video when you have time to watch it all. This is VERY Important!

Summary

I know: many extremists have claimed for years “the end is near!” Most of us have continually dismissed their claims, clinging to the confidence we have that the U.S. is too large, too powerful, too democratic to allow itself to fall into such a trap.

But understand this: we’ve watched for years as America’s left wing politicians have worked diligently to grow our government while diminishing the power of the American electorate.

Why would doing so be a concerted effort by so many who have given their lives to this cause if it isn’t real? Why do they need total control of the lives of every American to simply represent us in government to find and implement what’s best for us if this isn’t real? Remember: as it stands Constitutionally, today’s government is and is to forever be “government of, by, and for the People.” 

For their plans to proceed, that type of government has to be eliminated.

For us, it began with the United Nations being established on our shores at almost entirely U.S. taxpayers’ expense but is run by a group of handpicked international Socialists? Why are members of the Left in America so supportive of giving our resources to fulfill international commitments made by American politicians that giveaway American assets?

We’ve known for years. You saw and heard American leaders who have for decades been part of the process of the creation of a global ruling class of people that calls the shots for everyone — including YOU! That group is comprised primarily of members of the U.S. Democrat Party, but not just Democrats. No, American RINO’s (Republican In Name Only) have spent millions in a campaign against the continuation of a Trump agenda. Globalist members of that group like former Ohio Governor John Kasich, Colin Powell, and even the wife of Sen. John McCain have already during the Democrat Party “Virtual” Convention spoke loudly in their endorsement of ending the Trump administration.

Why would these and so many other so-called Republicans already be in such unity against what America today stands for if they were not pushing for a government established for a ruling class to control in total? A Biden/Harris elected would initiate the process of the U.S. joining the globalist you say and heard from their own mouths their desire and intentions to work towards a global government.

It’s coming. It’s their singular objective. The most powerful nation on Earth with the greatest political and economic might is the singular resource necessary to push the “Start” button to awaken this behemoth that will control us all.

Are you committed to that end? Do you support making that move? Are you ready for every aspect of your life to be ordered by a group of individuals who hate what our country has been for 260 years and are more than ready to give it away?

Putting a Biden/Harris ticket in control of our government is the key to the initiation of this globalist plan. It will initiate the gradual loss of who this nation is.

With a Trump re-election, we will have four more years of not just pushing back against this global monster, but to eat away at its foundation. How do we do that? By continuing our aggressive attacks against those domestically who are stealthily giving away our freedoms.

By the way, the Globalists will NOT stop their efforts with a Trump victory. They are in this for the long-haul. But a win will show them Americans now understand who are our enemies and that we are willing to go to war with them to pushback against and ultimately destroy their purposes.

What Happens if Trump Loses in November? The “Great Reset”

How would you respond if I asked you, “Is your world one of questions without answers, fear without peace, anger without resolution, and unknowns with no way to know them?” If I asked that to most Americans today, they’d nod their heads in affirmation. I know I feel that way. What’s strangest of all is beginning in January of 2017, all such difficulties disappeared for most of us. Why? Because newly inaugurated President Donald Trump had begun fixing multiple things in the U.S. at once that we didn’t even know were broken. And even with the roadblocks he faced, he was successful at turning around the economy in dramatic fashion, reduced unemployment, and subsequently increased employments to levels never before seen. Additionally, he brought trillions of dollars of manufacturing back to the U.S., supervised the U.S. becoming energy independent and Earth’s largest producer of oil and gas, passed a comprehensive criminal reform bill, and gave Americans individually and even companies tremendous tax cuts. All of this while watching federal revenues climb to unheard-of levels in just three years!

Things were pretty darn good: until February of 2020. (They were good even in spite of his impeachment by the House)

Enter Coronavirus. And the slide down the tunnel of “Uh-Oh” began. And we haven’t stopped sliding as of the end of June.

But, never worry. The likes of John Kerry and Al Gore have a plan to fix everything: Global Warming, Coronavirus, national debt, cultural and religious differences, wrapped in a contrived economy that we in the U.S. will find it to no longer be our concern. I forgot: while we’re doing all that, we’ve got to ante-up a to global government the trillions of dollars necessary to prop-up this pipe dream.

What? You haven’t heard about the “Great Reset?” Although you are probably not familiar with it, it could be well on its way, if the World Economic Forum (WEF) and a bunch of other powerful global organizations have their way. Trust me, the Great Reset is gaining traction faster than a middle-school fashion fad—and this is not a good thing.

In case you don’t care to take my word for it, allow me to introduce the architect of the Great Reset: World Economic Forum founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab. “A Great Reset is necessary to build a new social contract that honors the dignity of every human being,” Schwab recently announced.

Yes, Schwab wants out with the old social contract, and in with the new. But, what would Schwab’s new social contract look like?

According to Schwab, “The global health crisis has laid bare the unsustainability of our old system in terms of social cohesion, the lack of equal opportunities and inclusiveness. Nor can we turn our backs on the evils of racism and discrimination. We need to build into this new social contract our intergenerational responsibility to ensure that we live up to the expectations of young people.” What the heck does any of this mean?

As if his description there wasn’t enough to make you do a double-take, consider this statement from Schwab, “This global pandemic has also demonstrated again how interconnected we are. We have to restore a functioning system of smart global cooperation structured to address the challenges of the next 50 years. The Great Reset will require us to integrate all stakeholders of global society into a community of common interest, purpose, and action.”

I don’t know about you, but when I hear phrases like “integrate all stakeholders of global society into a community of common interest, purpose, and action” my internal alarm bells ring louder than Big Ben.

In reality, the “Great Reset” is just another attempt at a global government. And a global government is a farce. There are 195 sovereign countries in the world. It is laughable, not believable, to expect that 195 countries, accounting for more than seven billion people, would ever agree to a Great Reset.

The world is full of nations with vastly different cultures, political philosophies, and social-economic systems. Have we not learned over the past few centuries that these countries would rather govern themselves than be under the thumb of a faraway, big, unresponsive dragon of a government? Have we not learned that local government, which is closest to the people, and most responsive to their needs and unique circumstances, is vastly superior to a far-off, out-of-touch, bloated worldwide governing body?

The Great Reset, if ever enacted, would turn back the clock to the pre-Enlightenment era; to a time when individual freedom was more a wish than reality and elites like Klaus Schwab were unquestioned. The Enlightenment changed the world for the better. The “Great Reset” would set the world back centuries and thus should be resisted at all costs.

Understand This…

None of the noise during this year that turned into chaos and then morphed into an impeachment, a pandemic, and now social and racial protests and riots was accidental. “Oh, Dan. That’s just another conspiracy theory!” Rethink that, folks. There are too many moving pieces that have been craftily placed in their appropriate places at the exact time necessary to keep the fires of destruction burning brightly for this to be just “another strange coincidence.” If something looks too real to be unreal, you can always bet it’s real. And this is real.

The idea of a global government has been the dream of a group of world elitist individuals and governments for centuries. Their thought in hypothesizing this has always been, “With just one government, one economy, one set of laws and rules, the World would move smoother, simpler, quicker than it ever will with 195 different countries, people, and governments each trying to function all by themselves. One entity is the best solution for every ill for every person on Earth!” Of course, all who believe that think they are the individual and the group that is best suited to operate such a government.

In the U.S., we heard the whispers before Obama’s election that he was the globalist that would be anointed to lead such a transition to a globalist society. His pandering to the big names in Europe and the Middle East was a clue something like that was being planned. Then, John Kerry and Al Gore jumped onto the bandwagon and became Obama’s messengers to the Rothschilds of France and Switzerland, Prince Charles in the U.K., and the others who get together each January in Davos, Switzerland to plot their path. Their specific plans? One world currency and economy, Climate Change, a single worldwide military, and a globalized education system. Taxation would be from the Top Down and would include all nations. Every aspect of life in America as we know would be obliterated. That would be necessary to make it happen.

Many feel that the massive amount of government debt for every nation would prevent the implementation of such a model. Others think (and I fall into this category) the “closer” to make such a reset would be if “they” — whoever “they” are — would offer each nation the cancellation of their entire national debt if they participate in such a platform of one global government.

Summary

Know this: This coming January, regardless of who is in residence in the White House, global elites by the thousands will board their private jets from every quarter on the Globe to make their way to Davos, Switzerland to drink, brag, and pontificate about all that’s best for the World and who should pull it all together as the leader of such a utopia. They’ve had this same conversation numerous times over several centuries. But the stars have never aligned to facilitate such a radical and necessarily universal transition by so many countries. I cannot imagine even trying to get Xi Jinping of China on the same page as Prince Charles of the U.K., let alone Kim Jong Un with Japan’s President to agree on some type of unified entity for Japan that includes everybody on the Korean Penninsula.

Does this mass of Autocratic globalist wannabees think they could possibly pull this off? They very well might be successful — “If” this one thing happens: it will NEVER occur with Donald Trump at the helm of the United States.

These globalists know that. Why do you think there is such a concerted effort on every front to discredit him, his policies, his considerable achievements for the American people, and his plans for even more significant achievements in a second Trump term?

They MUST remove Donald Trump from office to allow any possible transition to a Globalist structure even to get started.

I won’t waste your time and start naming more names. Just imagine for a moment if something like was happening, who in power in the United States would be the likeliest of individuals who are fighting so hard to remove Donald Trump. Every person that comes to your mind is likely to be a part of it. And there are certainly just as many again who are foaming to dump this President who has done little but rain on their parade. Obama was to lay the groundwork. Hillary was to move it forward in transition. Who was to take the torch from Hillary? We’ll never know because Donald Trump destroyed their grand scheme.

Am I certain of all this? There are few things involving our government, of which I am certain. In this, just as I have poured it out to you, I cannot honestly say I’m certain of every piece of this plan. But what I am certain of is that such a utopian worldwide concept has long been just a dream and that are thousands of very powerful, very wealthy, and very politically connected individuals that certainly feel they can make this a reality.

We lowly plebes will be forced to stand on the sidelines, hope and pray for our nation, and trust God to thwart the evil schemes of these evil people and “Keep America Great.”

Death of Soleimani Ushers in Armageddon

Unless you have been for the last week in a coma, one of the World’s greatest terrorists died in a U.S. missile strike at Baghdad Airport. Iranian General Qasem Soleimani — that’s right, an Iranian General who was in Iraq — was the target of that missile strike. Who was this guy, and why did the U.S. take him out?

Follow this Bullet-point explanation:

  • President Trump ordered the attack on Major General Qassem Soleimani, a master terrorist and the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), on January 2nd.  He was killed along with seven others as he arrived at the Baghdad Airport.  Here are key facts about this man, who was responsible for the deaths of untold numbers of people around the world.
    Soleimani was the most potent Iranian general.  While other generals may have outranked him, as Commander of the Quds Forces, he answered only to Iran’s Supreme Leader.  His authority was outside the usual military chain of command in Iran, and he was given carte blanche authority for the export of terror around the world as he coordinated and directed the numerous Iranian militias and proxies worldwide.
  • The Quds Forces were responsible for assassinations, terrorism, and unconventional warfare that Iran exports and executes globally, including places like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen.  He was the benefactor of Hamas and Hezbollah.  Soleimani participated in assassinations and assassination attempts in the U.S., Germany, India, and Argentina.
  • He was also linked to the deaths of over 600 U.S. service members in Iraq, as he supplied enhanced Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to the insurgency there.  Thousands of U.S. troops were wounded and maimed by these weapons.  The IRGC was responsible for 17 percent of all U.S. casualties in Iraq between 2003 and 2011.
  • We are in a War on Terror since September 11, 2001.  Iran is the leading state-sponsor of terrorism, and the Quds Forces have been declared a terror organization.  In war, a general officer of an enemy force is a legitimate military target.  This was not an assassination.  It was the killing of an enemy soldier in a war.
  • According to Secretary of State Pompeo, Soleimani died not killed because of his past deeds, but because the U.S. learned of planned attacks by Soleimani on U.S. personnel and others.  The attacks were imminent.
  • Because of this, President Trump was not required to notify Congress in advance.  Under his Article Two powers in the U.S. Constitution, and following the War Powers Act, the president can take military action if a threat against the United States is imminent.
  • The attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad were not mere demonstrations.  They were coordinated attacks on the U.S. compound and its personnel directed by Soleimani and his Quds Forces, in coordination with Kataib Hezbollah in Iraq.
  • Soleimani was also responsible for the deaths of hundreds of demonstrators in Iran as they protested against government corruption and a failing economy in Iran.
  • Over the last several weeks, hundreds of Iraqi demonstrators died as they protested against Iranian influence in their own country and government corruption in Iraq.  The use of live ammunition against these demonstrations in Iraq can also be traced back to Soleimani.

Reaction

The events of the last several days are a reminder that there are evil people and terrorist forces who seek to do us harm.  When they chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” they genuinely mean it.

As with the death of Osama bin Laden, one would expect the entire American government to applaud the elimination of the world’s most vicious and most potent general who was personally responsible for the deaths of at least 600 Americans plus involved in the extermination of hundreds of thousands in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. Democrats and Republicans alike in the aftermath of bin Laden’s death congratulated President Obama and those 23 military heroes who sneaked into that Pakistani compound to get Osama bin Laden.

Republicans applaud President Trump’s actions to eliminate Soleimani. Democrats: not so much. Their venomous responses and continued attacks on President Trump just escalated in the wake of Soleimani’s death.

Here are just a few:

  1. Sen.Tom Udall (D-NM) claimed that Trump is “bringing our nation to the brink of an illegal war with Iran with no congressional approval.”
  2. Sen. Tom Carver (D-DE) noted that the Trump administration has “chosen rash provocation over any coherent strategy” and expressed fear that this most recent activity may be more of the same.
  3. Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI) noted that he has “serious concerns about this President’s execution of a potential act of war without authorization of Congress.”
  4. Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) “Trump’s apparent assassination of Soleimani is a massive, deliberate, and dangerous escalation of conflict with Iran. The President just put the lives of every person in the region – U.S. service members and civilians – at immediate risk. We need de-escalation now.”
  5. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) “Trump Admin owes a full explanation of airstrike reports—all the facts—to Congress&the American people. The present authorizations for the use of military force in no way cover starting a possible new war. This step could bring the most consequential military confrontation in decades.”
  6. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “Soleimani was a murderer, responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. But this reckless move escalates the situation with Iran and increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict. Our priority must be to avoid another costly war.”
  7. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) “When I voted against the war in Iraq in 2002, I feared it would lead to greater destabilization of the region. That fear, unfortunately, turned out to be true. The U.S. has lost approximately 4,500 brave troops, tens of thousands have been wounded, and we’ve spent trillions.”
  8. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? The real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”
  9. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests. But we cannot put the lives of American service members, diplomats, and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions.”

I know of not a single Democrat who has verbalized any support for the elimination of Soleimani. But, of course, the Democrat-News Media were quick to demonize President Trump for the attack, even to the point of memorializing Soleimani!

Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports https://t.co/NbZW4DaWvD
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) January 3, 2020

In addition to that quick tweet from The Post, the television leftist shows all abandoned their “normal” Trump-bashing and have gone all-in on Soleimani. I honestly did not know there were so many military and intelligence experts regarding administrative responsibilities for the notification of Congress before such covert actions are taken! Dozens of “military and legal experts” flood news shows on CNN, MSNBC, even the big three, ABC, NBC, and CBS, urging every American to run to their storm shelters to make sure they’re fully stocked for the imminent Armageddon that Soleimani’s death triggered.

Examples?

Those are just a few. In the last few days, such allegations against the President have escalated dramatically.

The Legality

No President has the unilateral authority to start a war. The War Powers Act details steps mandated for the U.S. to enter into a war. However, since 2001 and the World Trade Center attacks, things in the world of Intelligence and Terror have changed.

Regarding this specific action by President Trump, the Pentagon said Gen. Qassem Soleimani was “actively developing” plans to kill American diplomats and service members when he died. “That would appear to place the action within the legal authority of the president, as commander in chief, to use force in defense of the nation under Article II of the Constitution,” said Bobby Chesney, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law who specializes in national security issues.

“If the facts are as the Defense Department said, then the president relatively clearly has Article II authority to act in self-defense of American lives,” Chesney said.

“That justification would apply even if Soleimani hadn’t already launched an attack under the established doctrine of ‘anticipatory’ self-defense,” according to Jeff Addicot, a retired Army officer and expert in national security law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. “Legally, there’s no issue,” Addicot said. “Politically, however, it’s going to be debated, whether it’s the correct response. In my opinion, it’s the appropriate response, but it’s certainly legal.”

Summary

I’m said today — said that our country is so divided and so political. However, history shows us that American citizens have since the first Americans came ashore have had different ideas about government, rules and laws, and the way our country should operate. They with much debate created a template with which the majority agreed to use as the basic structure of living in America.

But things were different then. Early Americans while disagreeing, found ways to work through those differences, discuss, argue, and sometimes even come to blows or duels. But there was one common goal: to reach agreement so as to adhere to the articles of the U.S. Constitution, even when some of those articles were not appreciated by some of those settlers. It was called (and still is) “The Rule of Law.”

I’m disappointed that those from one political party have simply drawn a red line between their party and the party on the other side and said, “It’s our way or the highway.” And that is happening on every issue.

I see no end in sight.

What is causing all this? It boils down to two things: power and control. A large group of bureaucrats have sold their souls to the objective of snatching all the power of government that can be snatched, and with that power, instigate control over every aspect of the government of the United States.

What other explanation for what’s happening is there?

I’ll end with this:

“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. This, in fact, is our new American moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

“So tonight I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens, of every background, color, religion and creed.”

Those words came from Donald Trump’s first State of the Union Address. He’s a Republican reaching out to Democrats for unity. Every president reaches to those in the opposition for unity. They each know (and most have adopted that as their policy) that this country — a Democratic Representative Republic — MUST have agreement between those with opposing views of government to maintain its fundament status. Thankfully, our leaders have always ultimately worked through differences to reach a consensus.

It’s critical that we do on this issue, too. Instead of pointing fingers and name-calling, there needs to be an emphasis by all that at the end of the day, we are ALL Americans and we are “One Nation under God.”

It needs to remain what it is today.

Obama Weaponized Foreign Aid

President Trump has been demonized in the latest chapter of the “Dump-Trump” movement for pressuring Ukraine to investigate the alleged corruption of former VP Joe Biden and his son. In that telephone call between Mr. Trump and the newly elected president of Ukraine Zelensky, the Biden corruption investigation in Ukraine was mentioned. While Vice President, Biden publicly threatened to withhold an approximate $1 Billion of U.S. aid to Ukraine unless that prosecutor investigating Biden and his son was fired. Biden gave them six hours to do so. They fired the prosecutor and the relief was released.

Democrats have parlayed that phone call into the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” to launch formal impeachment proceedings against the President. It has been a fiasco. Partisan witnesses one after another were paraded before Rep. Adam Schiff’s committee to each demean President Trump’s Ukraine actions in an effort to build support from Americans sufficient to drive Trump from the White House.

The fundamental premise for their actions is the alleged use of U.S. aid to force Ukraine to restart the investigation into the Bidens. Why the uproar? Democrats’ justification (though lame) is that it is somehow unethical to use foreign aid to pressure foreign countries to do the bidding of America.

First, that’s not illegal. Secondly, it has been common practice for president after president going all the way back to the very first time foreign aid from the U.S. was given. And, guess what? Barack Obama used foreign aid multiple times to force countries to subvert to his opinion and policies on various issues. He even weaponized his foreign support for purely social issues — NOT anything involved in U.S. or other nations’ laws!

Obama’s Foreign Aid Blackmail Scheme: “Quid Pro Quo”

In July of 2015, the eyes of the world were on Africa as President Obama welcomed Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to the White House and, for the first time as president, Obama visited his father’s home country of Kenya.

Reports indicated that Buhari and Obama discussed the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, as well as possible political and economic reforms for Buhari’s struggling country. Similar discussions took place during the Kenya trip.

While all seemed well on the public front, the reality is that both Buhari’s and Obama’s visits were used by the White House to promote what Pope Francis called “ideological colonization.” This agenda was let slip just days before Buhari arrived in Washington when the U.S. State Department indicated it would push the Nigerian government to redefine marriage.

According to the Nigerian Pilot, America’s Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told reporters that “as a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria, as well as other governments which have provided legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community.”

Thomas-Greenfield defended the pressure, saying it was not international interference in Nigeria’s domestic affairs, but rather is “very much a work in progress…I think you will agree with me that the law in Nigeria went far in discriminating against this community but also people who associate with them. So, we will continue to press the government, to press the legislature to change these laws and provide human rights for all Nigerian people regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Across Africa, millions of people face starvation, war, oppression, poverty, and death due to a lack of essential aid. For decades, the United States has provided many forms of assistance designed to help nations resolve these problems.

Under the Obama administration, however, humanitarian aid often came with a price tag: Abandoning traditional values, especially those related to contraception, abortion, and marriage.

In 2011, Obama issued a memorandum that directed all U.S. embassies worldwide to promote LGBT rights, which he said were “central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights.”

“Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action to promote the fundamental human rights of LGBT persons everywhere,” he said.

That same year, the administration made aid to Nigeria dependent upon it’s not enacting the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. And before she stepped down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton compared same-sex relationships to race and sex in a speech that left African leaders furious.

In 2016, at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both suggested that Africa’s war-torn, impoverished nations could attract economic and development aid from the West by becoming more gay-friendly.

This is social engineering at its finest, but it is not limited to redefining marriage. Contraception and abortion policies — carefully disguised as “family planning” — are also pushed upon Nigeria, whose citizens have rejected these mandates, which they consider harmful anti-women policies. (”Family planning:” sound familiar?)

Again, this “ideological colonization” is not limited to Nigeria. During his visit to Kenya, Obama publicly lectured President Uhuru Kenyatta on his nation’s laws against same-sex sexual relationships. According to CNN, sexual relations between males over 14 is illegal and punishable by as many as 14 years in prison.

Think about this: the Obama Administration is the same administration that spent tens of billions of dollars PLUS substantial political capital on that infamous Iranian deal Obama put in place without Congress that included virtually no requirements of performance of any kind by Iran. And Iran outwardly supports terrorists! And then Obama opened relations with Cuba despite requiring NO political reforms from the Castro dictatorship.

African leaders have long opposed Obama’s 21st-century imperialism, especially religious leaders. Ignatius Kaigama, an Archbishop in Nigeria – whose diocese is in the heart of the area affected by the terrorist organization Boko Haram – and Bishop Joseph Osei-Bonsu of Ghana said they were tired of international pressure to legalize gay marriage.

The Nigerian law explains, “Marriage is between a man and a woman… even outside of scriptural support, our culture tells us that, nature tells us that.”

And despite threats of denial of much-needed aid, he says, Africans will not give in to the demands. “These are our cultures, and we’re not going to compromise over them.”

Former Population Research Institute Media and Research Coordinator Anne Morse went to Kenya during the Obama Administration. An observation she made on Facebook explained a lot:

“Dear President Obama,” wrote Morse, “please justify why–for every dollar USAID spends on water and sanitation in Kenya–it spends TWELVE dollars on family planning.” Morse noted that she “had seen four television advertisements for condoms today, but hasn’t had a hot shower since Sunday.”

The worst example of America’s new-age imperialism was found in the growing evidence that President Obama purposely withheld aid to fight the terrorist group Boko Haram. While Buhari’s predecessor was accused of refusing U.S. aid to fight terrorism, what has been less reported is that the refusal came in part because the United States demanded Nigeria change its laws on marriage.

These accusations aren’t just coming from Catholic bishops. A former U.S. Congressman, a Pentagon Army spokesperson, a Nigerian official, and the Nigerian Ambassador to the United States all confirmed this was the case. To quote Ambassador Adebowale Adefuye in his statement to the Council on Foreign Relations, “the U.S. government has refused to grant Nigeria’s request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists (Boko Haram) within a short time.”

Nigerian-American Winnie Obike, a candidate in political communications at the University of Maryland, said she was “appalled by the Obama administration’s foreign policy objectives for the African continent.”

“It was ironic that a president who passionately apologized for America’s 19th and 20th century imperialism adopted a twenty-first century imperialism toward Africa by forcing nations to change their beliefs on marriage, abortion, and contraception in exchange for basic humanitarian aid,” said Obike, who was the Minority Outreach Coordinator for the Minnesota for Marriage Campaign.

“Nigeria and other African nations need humanitarian aid and help fighting terrorist groups like Boko Haram, not the West’s declining values,” said Obike. “I urge President Buhari not to compromise traditional values in exchange for foreign aid.”

In 2009, President Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize because many hoped he would lead the world to greater peace and security. The world looked in, hoping that he would take action to justify the award. He could have easily done so by setting aside his ideology and focusing on the real aid needed by Nigerians, Kenyans, and many other Africans. As we all know, that did not happen.

Summary

Try as I might, I cannot find any way to reconcile the consistent and non-stop hypocrisy of the actions of House Democrats regarding their faux-impeachment process to rid Washington of Donald Trump. It is unconscionable that they somehow justify their doing so to an alleged demand by President Trump of Ukraine to investigate Biden corruption in Ukraine in exchange for U.S. foreign aid. I’ll say this one more time: Even if the President did just that it would not have been unusual, illegal, but would have been part of his (and that of any other U.S. president) duty as American president to honor the 1999 Treaty between the U.S. and Ukraine to work together to rid each country of corruption of every kind that involved in any way the other’s country or members of its government. 

If the truth were known, Rep. Schiff would probably have wanted to instigate impeachment proceedings against Mr. Trump if he had NOT restarted corruption investigations by Ukraine IN Ukraine as part of the treaty.

All of the facts of this story have been in the public domain for some time. Yet no one in the Lame-Stream media has made any effort to report the facts. It’s far more palatable for them to continue their nonstop stream of vitriol at this President who refuses to play the Deep State D.C. games to perpetuate the flow of power, control, and money from D.C. to their minions to support their often illegal actions at the expense of the American people.

Isn’t it sad that President Obama was using same-sex marriage and abortion as a bargaining chit for the United States to send money to African nations to buy food, clean water, medical supplies, and to acquire military-grade equipment to destroy the Islamic Terrorist organization Boko Haram? Remember those several hundred young African girls kidnapped and held by Boko Haram for several years in which they were enslaved and turned into sex toys of those terrorists? All of those babies’ horrors and pain and brutality at the hands of those monsters fall on Barack Obama, who refused to fund measures to obliterate those terrorists. Those young girls would have never been kidnapped or turned into sex slaves. And the U.S. President refused because he demanded those African nations to mirror HIS values about sex, abortion, and same-sex marriage. And Obama did all that in the name of the American people.

I don’t know which is worse: Obama doing so or the Media hiding what he did and the details for years from the American people. And today’s Lame-Stream media are trying to turn what Obama DID do into something that President Trump did NOT do. And House Democrats are using the misrepresentations, lies, and lawlessness to impeach the President, and in doing so, subvert the wills of 63 million American voters who voted for Mr. Trump.

Mr. Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize WAS a joke and is now a travesty thrust on the World that has destroyed a large number of the African people in the name of political elitism. And the World thinks you and I supported his doing so.

“We Are the World, We are the People….”

Here we are: two years+ into the Donald Trump Presidency and STILL the United States media do not give this guy any credit. They  everyday still throw allegations of wrongdoing, insults regarding his hairstyle, the way he speaks, his skin color, his Queens accent — pretty much in every way a country’s media could demean someone. And when they do it, they laugh and snarl, kind of like they did shortly before Donald Trump announced he was actually running for president in 2016. They started laughing and making fun of him then. They haven’t stopped.

But things are a bit different now: Donald Trump has a political history. No, his political history is not one of his personal foreign policy accomplishments — at least no accomplishments from BEFORE he became President. His “pre-White House” political history probably exists only with his record of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he has contributed through the years to local, state, and national candidates whom he supported. Several of those contribution recipients have donned the Democrat mantle of “presidential candidate” and are on the campaign trail for their party’s nomination to take their former “contributor” — Donald Trump — head-on in 2020. And none have very nice things to say about him — but they took his money!

There’s a bit of irony there, don’t you think?

Let’s face facts: this President gets very little support in the U.S., Of course, the ardent Trump supporters in the United States support him. And contrary to how the State Media portray this president, most understand facts and numbers and know what he has done for the country in 2 years. But also, those “Trumpsters” still cannot reconcile the fact that the American Media — NY Times, WaPo, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, Huffington Post — give President Trump no credit for the economy, foreign trade, millions of new jobs, low unemployment across the board, more people employed than ever, etc. Almost daily there is a collective “SMH” you can almost hear across the nation. (For those of you in downtown Manhattan and San Francisco, “SMH” means “Shake My Head.)

Here’s what we’re going to do today: we’re going to take a look for yourselves at something as simple as Google, do a search, and see what’s important to the media in the U.S. and across the “Pond” regarding this President. It begins with his popularity overseas, takes a look at the domestic and European media portrayals of Mr. Trump’s just completed visit to the U.K., and then we’ll complete today’s offering with a story — a really GOOD story — about “Bubba” from Texas. And Bubba will help explain what the American State Media are missing about Donald Trump. Let’s start here:

Google

Take just a moment and Google this: “What is President Trump’s world favorability number?” I took that challenge, and here are some of the results I found:

“Trump is even more unpopular in Europe than he is in the U.S …”

“Trump’s Approval Rating Is Even Lower Globally, and He’s …”

“How Popular Is Donald Trump? | FiveThirtyEight”

“Trump Approval Worldwide Remains Low Especially Among Key …”

Notice the stories that Googles’ algorithm popped up with this specific search that had NOTHING to do with Europe. So President Trump’s favorability is low in some countries overseas. And according to media pundits in the U.S., that’s a really big deal. Meghan Markle spurned the President during his recent trip to Britain to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Though an American by birth, she is now a married member of the Royal Family. Certainly, she was not a Donald Trump fan when he ran for president. And, certainly, members of the British press made very little about the comments made about the President and his response to hers.’ But not so across the Pond! America’s press went nuts with constant negativity about President Trump and details of his trip. Some even made fun of Melania and her attire!

Isn’t it a strange world in which the U.S. media would lambast the President while he makes a trip to the U.K. to join European government leaders and hundreds of World War II veterans celebrating the 75th anniversary of D-Day? Think about it: if the United States had not led the storming of Omaha Beach that day, most of Europe would probably be speaking German today. And the U.S. may have been also.

President Trump was actually applauded in the U.K. press. Not so in the U.S. Here’s a screenshot of a YouTube search with the search term “U.S. Media attacks of President Trump.” It may be too small for you to read, but basically, I’ll summarize the search findings: every story that comes up with THAT search sentence — rather than a video or story about the U.S. media’s attacks of this president — is about a video and/or story of PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTACKING THE MEDIA!

Are you surprised?

Wanna take a look at the headlines from the other side of the Pond — from European news outlets?

“Trump’s U.K. Visit Unites the British” 

Trump’s UK Visit: Trump, May discuss special alliance between the U.S. and the U.K.”

Nile Gardiner: Pres. Trump’s U.K. Visit Possibly His “Most Successful” State Visit

Here are the headlines about the Trump U.K. trip from U.S. Media outlets:

“Ignorant Donald Trump Remarks in Ireland Force Irish PM’s Clarification” (Rachel Maddow via MSNBC)

“Jeremy Hunt Calls Donald Trump a ‘Controversial President'”(Jeremy Hunt: RT )

“Day 1 Of Donald Trump Gaffs” (RT)

“Trolling Calling: Trump Gets ‘Baby Blimp’ Treatment In London”  (MSNBC)

President Donald Trump Causes Controversy In UK Visit”  (NBC News)

“Trump an ‘enemy of democracy,’ London protestor says | Trump’s U.K. Visit 2019 (CNBC)

Who Cares?

Let’s cut right to the chase: does anyone in America really care what people in Switzerland, Belgium, Turkey, Russia, or Lichenstein think about President Trump or any U.S. president? I know Barack Obama made it clear he wanted all of us to join all of “them” and become “Citizens of the World” instead of U.S. citizens. I would like for everyone to send me a $100 bill tomorrow, too. But just as certain I am that I will receive no $100 bills from anyone if I asked, I am certain none of us are going to become “Citizens of the World.” Donald Trump does not care to be the “President” or “King” of the World, either. I’m pretty sure Barack Obama would have liked that, though.

So why does anyone here care at all how the British or French or German media feel about President Trump?

It’s kinda like this for me: I love my wife. We’ve been married 44 years. Yes, her paint’s faded, her windshield has a few cracks in it, and her tires are constantly going flat. But you know what? I really like her THE WAY SHE IS! And, quite honestly, I don’t give a rip about what anyone else thinks about her, I think I’m going to keep her. Why? BECAUSE I LIKE WHAT SHE’S DONE AS MY WIFE, MOTHER TO OUR CHILDREN, AND NONNIE TO OUR 6 GRANDCHILDREN.

And I don’t care what anyone else thinks — especially not someone who lives in Zimbabwe!

Here’s what they’re all missing:

  • Does anyone think a stupid guy from Queens could turn a stake from his father into several billion dollars if he was stupid?
  • Does anyone think that same guy could build an enterprise from nothing into being the employer of several hundred thousand Americans and maintain it for 30 years?
  • Does anyone think that stupid guy could create and personally produce (while starring in) a multi-year #1 network television show?

Zig Ziglar is probably using that example in his career building seminars as an example of what someone — ANYONE — is capable of achieving if they only try and never give up.

The Leftist Media (and the Leftists in Congress) are just hacked off because — first of all — he beat their Star in her run for the White House in 2016. Secondly, they feel the way they feel because they do not understand how he operates, what his governing intentions are, and they certainly don’t understand this one thing about him: he makes promises and he KEEPS promises! They are not accustomed to seeing that in any national politician.

So they just stand back and throw rocks at him. Their fundamental premise is this: “He’s dumb, he’s stupid, he doesn’t know anything about politics, and we do. He simply needs to sit down, shut up, and let us tell him what to do and how to do it just like we have in the past.”

Donald Trump is NOT going to ever do that!

The Finish: Bubba

His name was Bubba. He was from Texas but he was in New York City and he needed a loan, So he walked into a bank in the Big Apple and asked for the loan officer.

He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an international redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank.
The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank’s president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from Texas for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank’s private underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, Bubba returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of 23.07. The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet and found that you are a distinguished alumni from the University of Texas, a highly sophisticated investor and multi-millionaire with real estate and financial interests all over the world. Your investments include a large number of wind turbines around Sweetwater, Texas. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?”
The good ‘ole boy replied, “Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?”

Moral of the story: “just because he does things a little bit different than you do doesn’t mean he’s stupid! Just look at the results.”

Are “Friendlies” Alone with U.S. Troops Out Of Syria?

During the 2016 presidential campaign, one of the promises Candidate Trump made to Americans was to get the U.S. out of Syria and to not get involved militarily in foreign countries going forward. He famously put it this way:  “I’m not, and I don’t want to be, the president of the world.” So why all the uproar from those on the Left and some on the Right for his recent announcement he was going to pull the last 2000+ members of the American military still in Syria out?

Media Uproar

Who has been surprised to see the constant attacks from the Media with not only the President’s announcement to pull out of Syria but the forced resignation of Secretary of Defense Mattis? They don’t care about Trump’s campaign promises to do so. They don’t care that former President Obama fired Mattis, but didn’t even bother to call the General to fire him. At least Trump met with Mattis multiple times and the Secretary knew of the military strategy disagreement with President Trump. Obama didn’t even do that.

How ridiculous are Mainstream Media members about this? Max Boost of the Washington Post who has been a constant attacker of all-things-Trump illustrated just how ridiculous the MSM is. In April of 2018, he ridiculed the President for the U.S. even having a military presence in Syria. Then in December, he railed against the announcement the President made about pulling ground troops out of Syria.

Can President Trump do anything right?

The answer to that — at least according to the Media is a resounding, “No!”

That strike against Syria prompted the tweet from the Washington Post columnist the next day (shown in the graphic). What’s the point we are reaching to express? Keep reading!

Remember this from April of 2017?

“Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the air base in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched,” Mr. Trump said in remarks at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

“Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed, and failed very dramatically,” the president said, referring to President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. “As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen, and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.” The cruise missiles struck the airfield beginning around 8:40 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, and the strikes continued for three to four minutes.

Mattis Media “Matters”

Defense secretaries come and go.  President Obama had four of them in eight years, who had some unkind things to say about his leadership or lack of it.  There was no talk of chaos or of the only adult in the room leaving. Suddenly, the media are in a meltdown after “Mad Dog” Mattis announced his departure from the Cabinet after President Trump announced our departure from Syria:

Foreign Policy Pentagon reporter Lara Seligman wrote the press corp [sic] is contemplating suicide over Mattis’ resignation, “I think I speak for all national security reporters tonight when I say I’m about ready to jump off a cliff. But at least I already wrote the “who will replace Mattis” story two months (only two months?????) ago[.”]

President Trump is just now completing his first two years as President. Mattis has been Secretary of Defense from the beginning. It is NOT unusual for Presidents to have and make Cabinet changes quite often. The Mattis change is NOT unusual for ANY president to make. And Mattis made it clear in his letter of resignation that he was leaving for “fundamental” differences with President Trump on foreign military actions — specifically on the pending drawdown of troops from Syria.

As this report for you is being prepared, the American media and much of the World were surprised to hear that the President and Mrs. Trump paid a secret visit to U.S. troops in Iraq the day after Christmas. This trip and the media’s response to it are humorous to me. I watched last week as the President’s troop withdrawal plan was released as NBC blasted the President not only for the troop withdrawal from Syria but the fact that President Trump had not visited any troops on foreign soil. NBC reported that this way:

“On Christmas Day, President Donald Trump took part in a long-running practice of presidents who called troops stationed around the country and the world. But he broke from a recent tradition of actually visiting troops and wounded warriors. He did so in 2017 when he visited wounded troops at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Dec. 21 (and invited Coast Guard service members to play golf at his course in West Palm Beach, Florida). By staying home on Tuesday, Trump became the first president since 2002 who didn’t visit military personnel around Christmastime.”

I cannot wait to see who says what in a negative fashion about the President’s trip. You can bet he will get NO media credit for the trip!

Summary

The bottom line is this: no matter what this President does or does NOT do regarding the American military, the Mainstream Media will demean him. Oh, how horrible it is to withdraw from Syria. They make it sound like we’ve had tens of thousands of troops there for years and that our ground forces leaving Syria will leave millions of Syrians in harm’s way. “ISIS is there and will slaughter them all!” Or “President Assad will gas his own citizens now that America is gone!” The MSM makes it seem in all their reporting that the U.S. has had thousands of troops on the ground and even have military bases there. What they do NOT talk about is U.S. military capabilities when those tens of thousands of ground troops and the HUGE military infrastructure put in place in Syria are pulled out!

Wait….how many troops do we have on the ground in Syria? Let’s turn to the Washington Post that gave us the dire consequences of the pending massive U.S. troop pullout of Syria:

U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria is ‘a dream come true for the Iranians’

One of the biggest winners of President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria will be Iran, which can now expand its reach across the Middle East with Washington’s already waning influence taking another hit.

The abrupt reversal of U.S. policy regarding its small military presence in a remote but strategically significant corner of northeastern Syria has stunned U.S. allies, many of whom were counting on the Trump administration’s seemingly tough posture on Iran to reverse extensive gains made by Tehran in recent years.

Instead, the withdrawal of troops opens the door to further Iranian expansion, including the establishment of a land corridor from Tehran to the Mediterranean that will enhance Iran’s ability to directly challenge Israel. It also throws in doubt Washington’s ability to sustain its commitment to other allies in the region and could drive many of them closer to Russia, an Iranian ally, analysts say.

“This is a dream come true for the Iranians,” said Riad Kahwaji, who heads the Institute for Near East and Gulf Military Analysis, a defense consultancy in Dubai. “No longer will Iran take the Trump administration seriously. It’s an isolationist administration, it will no longer pose a threat, and Iran will become bolder in its actions because they know this administration is more bark than bite.”

A top Iranian official gloated Friday that the United States has admitted failure in its attempts to “overrun” the Middle East, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.

“The Americans have come to the conclusion that they can exercise power neither in Iraq and Syria nor in the entire region,” said Brig. Gen. Mohammad Pakpour, the commander of ground forces of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, at a news conference in Tehran. The most immediate impact will be in Syria, where U.S. troops have been serving as a buffer against Iranian expansion throughout the country as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad — backed by Iranian-trained and funded militias consolidates control over areas that rebelled against him in 2011. The area in northeastern Syria where most of an estimated 2,000 U.S. troops are based is now up for grabs, with both Turkey and the Syrian government vying for control.

Here’s the Truth about the U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria:

  • We have just a little over 2000 troops in Syria;
  • It is doubtful that Iran would attempt to overrun Syria with their own troops while U.S. forces are there. But knowing the U.S. commitment to Syria, it is doubtful that the withdrawal will open the door to the Iranians;
  • How long if needed will it take for the U.S. to deploy and activate troops BACK to Syria if needed? According to experts, it would take no more than 24-48 hours to do so;
  • What could the U.S. do in Syria during that 1-2 day period to get ground troops back? The U.S. could duplicate what it did to Syrian and Russian troops in 2017 to stop the gassing by Assad. NBC News reported this about U.S. action against Assad in April of 2017:

    The United States fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Syria overnight in response to what it believes was a chemical weapons attack that killed more than 100 people. At least six people were killed, Syria claimed, but the Pentagon said civilians were not targeted and the strike was aimed at a military airfield in Homs. All but one of the missiles hit their intended target, one U.S. military official told NBC News. The other missile failed. The missiles were fired from the destroyers Porter and Ross in the eastern Mediterranean.” The U.S. decimated Syria without a single person on the ground when that very effective missile strike took place. That or a similar attack could be initiated in a matter of hours.

The bottom line is this: no matter what the President does or does not do, he will NEVER satisfy his detractors. And the mouthpieces of the Democrat Party — the Mainstream Media — will never give the President credit for ANY accomplishment. So why wouldn’t the President simply do what he promised Americans during his 2016 campaign that he would do?

Wait a minute: U.S. Presidents are not supposed to do what they promise during campaigns. So why would President Trump feel any obligation to keep any of his promises?

What “Really” Happened to Khashoggi

We are all familiar with the horrific murder of the Saudi journalist  Khashoggi in the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Istanbul, Turkey. While the fact that an international journalist with significant U.S. ties was brutally murdered, the fact that it happened in a country with which the U.S. has close ties — Turkey — opens Pandora’s box of international anger, hatred, and fear.

Here in the U.S., almost all Americans are outraged that  Khashoggi was killed by Saudi rebels that have apparent close ties to the Saudi government. The incident has put the U.S. government in a quandary: do we as a nation have an obligation to take actions against the Saudi government? Should we take political or other actions against our ally? If so, how serious should they be?

We have stood still, waiting for results of the CIA investigation into the matter is completed and evidence is complete. But American sentiment — especially from those on the left — is to do something significant against the Saudis, and do something significant NOW. But what should that be?

It’s VERY obvious the anti-Trump clan wants the President to take action of some sort immediately. However, it is unclear if their reasoning is to simply inflict pain on the Saudi government for the act of murder conducted in another American ally’s territory — Turkey. Some think those same people clamoring for retribution would be the first to pounce on the President regardless of what action he would choose. In fact, the Saudis when these U.S. sanctions were first mentioned immediately made it clear that if the U.S. took any punitive action against Saudi Arabia,  they would raise the price of oil to $100 a barrel immediately. That would cripple the U.S. So what should we do and when?

Before we get to our recommendation, it is worthy to note that there is another reason for the Khashoggi murder other than the common explanation which is that the Saudi government was committed to ridding the World of the international journalist who spent significant time bashing the Saudis. Let’s look at the “other” explanation.

Conspiracy Theory

The “other” story assumes there really is a “Cabal”  or “International Deep State” in quiet political power behind the scenes. It is comprised of individuals, families, and groups who possess great power throughout the world. Those people (for this other possibility to be real) are assumed to be angry as they watch their power being eroded by a U.S. President who, while firm in dealing with foreign affairs, is being fair with all his foreign counterparts. The relationships between President Trump and other foreign leaders are based on HIS conclusions of their positions, intentions, and actions that occur during HIS tenure in the White House. He has no intention of letting others develop his opinions of other leaders, their countries, or their intentions in foreign affairs.

And for this to play out, this “Cabal” or “Deep State” needed to somehow get Saudi Arabia in the disfavor of the new U.S. President. They hold power over most of the World’s monetary system and resources. However, the Saudis hold the principle power over oil.

Here’s how this Conspiracy Theory looks:

1) Trump had a sit down with the King of Saudi Arabia last year. The King held a Sword Dance to honor President Trump.

2) Then last November, the House of Saud got cleaned up. The Ritz Hotel became a jail. A certain Prince was stripped naked and hung upside down from the ceiling, to let the others know they ain’t messing around.

3) While “Deep State” is an American term, let’s call it “The New World Order” or “Global Cabal” for the International level. Anyway, they lose their inside-men within the Saudi Kingdom, as Mohammed Bin Salman cleans up.

4) The Global Cabal, led by such families as the Rothschild and Payseur families, need to get back at Saudi Arabia. Specifically, they need to take MBS out. They set a trap, and this Khashoggi character becomes a pawn to be sacrificed.

5) Khashoggi dies. MBS (Mohammed Bin Salaam) is blamed. Ideally, this will set a rift between Trump and Saudi Arabia, as Trump will have to give in to pressure and place sanctions on Saudi Arabia.

6) This doesn’t happen. Saudi Arabia flips the Rothschild’s and Paysuers a big Middle-Finger and immediately tanks the price of oil. The price of oil falls immediately after the Khashoggi incident. Currently, it has dropped $20 a barrel and is still falling.

7) This is the last thing the Rothschild’s and Payseur’s expect. They never thought the Saudi king would play economic warfare, and start messing with the Petro-Dollar.

8) The Rothschild’s and Payseur’s are caught short, with the unexpected loss in energy costs. Their losses in other industries are huge, as they were heavily invested in energy, and expecting those stocks and profits to climb.

9) With the Saudi’s crashing oil, a big squeeze is placed on Iran. Trump reinstated sanctions and closed loopholes that were open for years, that allowed Iran to sell oil on the Black Market. What little oil Iran is selling now, is worth a lot less.

10) While Iran is “oil-rich,” they are terribly inefficient at getting it out of the ground. Their cost per barrel is the worst in OPEC. This slashes their profit margin and makes them more susceptible to downturns in the market.

11) The Global Cabal, and/or CIA, isn’t funding Iran terrorism anymore. Obama isn’t sending plane-loads of cash to Iran in the dead of night.

12) All of Iran’s funding for terrorism is being dried up, with sanctions and now cheap oil– accompanied by high costs of drilling and refining.

13) Trump and Saudi Arabia are about to corner Iran.

14) There is Option A: Give up on terrorism, and cut the Rothschild – Payseur strings, or be overthrown by your own people. If there is an uprising in Iran, Trump and America will support it (unlike Obama).

15) Option B: Walk away from the Evil Puppet-Masters, and become a peaceful member of the World Community. First Saudi Arabia, then North Korea, and now Iran.

16) Iran has a choice, either the hard way or the easy way–but business as usual is over.

17) The Cabal (Rothschild-Payseur), never thought Saudi Arabia would be crazy enough to tank the price of oil. They thought the Saudi’s loved money as much as they do.

18) They never thought Trump and the Saudi’s would go on the offense after Khashoggi’s “death.” They thought Trump would play defense, and betray the Saudi King. They were wrong.

19) Trump and the Saudi King are letting the world know they control the Petro-Dollar now and will tank the price of oil as much as it is necessary. The strings have been cut, and we have entered Petro-Dollar warfare with the death of Khashoggi.

Summary

First let’s be clear: we should NOT act at all against the Saudis until all the facts are in. Yes, Turkey completed their investigation and concluded Saudi assassins coordinated and perpetrated the Khashoggi murder in a brutal fashion, even scattering Khashoggi body parts in various parts of the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. Their conclusion contains a certainty that Mohammed Bin Salaam (or “MBS”) at least knew of the killing in advance if not having ordered it.

Secondly: when (if at all) is it our business when a foreign country takes actions it may deem necessary against one of their own citizens. Yes, we do not agree with such a process so egregious, but on what legal basis does the U.S. take any such actions against MBS or Saudi Arabia? The answer is simple: legal action by the U.S. would be required to occur before The International Court of Justice (abbreviated ICJ). The ICJ is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN). It settles legal disputes between member states and gives advisory opinions to authorized UN organs and specialized agencies. It comprises a panel of 15 judges elected by the General Assembly and Security Council for nine-year terms. It is seated in the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands. Even if that was the course chosen for action against Saudi Arabia, facts and evidence of the Khashoggi killing would be necessary. All the World has as evidence so far are the findings of Turkey. Quite honestly, this court is a part of the United Nations. And we know how the U.N. looks at the U.S. I don’t think we would have such standing in such a case. And I’m certain so too would be the ICJ.

Third: Can you imagine how the Left would respond if President Trump went ahead and leveled extreme sanctions against the Saudi government? Their response would be quick — and deadly. Assuming the Saudis would follow-through with their threats of extreme oil price hikes, the U.S. would certainly experience massive cost hikes that would be devastating and even disastrous. Almost everything in the U.S. requires transportation — which means reliance of petroleum products. The costs for these increases would certainly be passed along by companies to consumers: $3 – $5 per gallon gasoline prices.

What should we do? Absolutely nothing beyond what we have already done until ALL the facts are in. If one assumes that the above theory is true, jumping the gun without facts to legitimize any such actions would be foolish and needless. I doubt any international court without hard facts that prove members of the Saudi ruling family had been involved in a murder, taking action prematurely (other than just notifying the Saudis of our investigation and our intentions if they are exposed as being complicit in the killing) would initiate a atrocious and deadly financial crisis the U.S. does not need to bring on itself — at anytime.

Let facts play out. The Saudis certainly have their faults and dirty laundry. Remember: Osama bin Laden was the son of a wealthy Saudi native. Most of the 911 terrorists were Saudi. How stupid would it be for us to — strictly for political purposes — take any action without having all the facts.

But then again, doing so has become almost commonplace in Washington D.C. “Fly by the seat of your pants” seems to be the accepted operating procedure for D.C. politically correct elites. Their motto: “Never let facts get in the way of a juicy story.”

Sadly it seems that D.C. has learned to rely on salaciousness as an effective and allowable tool for fighting with political opponents. That comes in Leftists’ world with this caveat: “No price is too high to levy on people who have gone against Leftist causes.”

It looks like Donald Trump and the Saudi royals have stepped in a PC ant hill. No matter where they choose to stand, they’re still going to sustain a much of ant bites.

Stay tuned: much, much more still to come on the “Khashoggi Story.” It’s going to be fun to see if the “Conspiracy Theory” detailed above will actually play out in the next few months.

If I was pressed to vote I’d have to vote “no” on doing anything Saudi related at this moment.

Think about this: can we with any credibility expect the World to respect us and just simply overlook all the unilateral and unsubstantiated actions the U.S. would take if we act now? Actually, if we DO act before we know factually what happened in Turkey, it would be doing so based totally on emotion and a “gut feeling.” We don’t need to go down that road. We have a house to take back, and we cannot expect that would go down nicely.

Meeting with Kim Jong Un: Good or Bad?

The answer to that question is certainly subjective. What is odd to me is that even Conservative members of the media are at best cautious about any positive results of this meeting. Even FOX News — with the exception of Sean Hannity — is being very cautious. Why do you think that is? We’ll analyze that today. Listen in!

North Korea Summit: Will it Ever Happen?

Congressional Leftists are crying “The Sky is Falling” because Donald Trump canceled the summit with North Korea. They do NOT really care to understand the reasoning — and the ART OF A DEAL that is obviously at play here. Listen today to the conversation with multiple members of Congress about wildly varying thoughts about the cancellation of the summit and what’s ahead. Thank’s for listening!
