While Biden Speaks at “Armageddon” Democrat Fund Raiser, Americans Wonder How We Got Here

Our installed President, Joe Biden, recently spoke at an “Armageddon” Fund Raiser, being held by the Democrats.

What did Biden say at this Fund Raiser?

Give money to the Democratic Party and I’ll make sure that Putin does not launch nuclear weapons at us?

Or, “I’ve got Putin right where I want him. He’s scared of my hairy legs.”

Ever since the Invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin’s soldiers began, I have heard Democrat Apologists attempt to cover for their miserable excuse for a President by saying that “No one could have seen this coming”.

Are you kidding me?

Did the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan who lead the deaths of 13 American soldiers and the stranding behind enemy lines of hundred of Americans by the doddering old fool in the White House and those pulling his strings not even give you a hint of a clue?

Back in June of last year, someone saw this coming: I did.

Can y’all even imagine what America’s Foreign Policy is going to look like under demented old Joe?

It’s going to make Carter’s and Obama’s look good by comparison.

And those of us who have been around a while, know how awful that will be.

Okay.

So, China hacked us to influence the 2020 Presidential Election in order to get Biden into office.

And Russia has been hacking us to attempt to damage Trump and our Sovereign Nation while we were dealing with the coronavirus that China let loose on the world.

The only conclusion which I can come to is the fact that there are a lot of professional politicians and Deep State Bureaucrats who have been paid off to look the other way while our two biggest enemies treated us like a coed at a Frat Party.

Now, can you imagine how much worse activities like this will get under a Biden Administration?

Heck, Russia and China won’t even have to hack our computers or set up our public officials with “honey pots”.

He does not have the intestinal fortitude nor the brain cells left to stand up to Russia and his “business partners” in China.

Lord, I hate it when I’m right.

How did we get here?

Whose fault is it?

It is the fault of the Far Left Democratic Party, who were so desperate to regain the White House that they were forced to nominate a doddering old fool in the throes of dementia because all of the other primary candidates had the personality of a cardboard cutout.

To add to the problem, the professional politician that they chose had a 40 year track record of making horrible Foreign Policy decisions.

And, even though Biden ran as a Moderate, he has governed as a Far Left Radical Socialist, even taking a knee at the White House with the NBA Champions.

All of our enemies, foreign and domestic, must be throwing a party.

The Democrats installed Neville Chamberlain on Steroids as President of the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth.

Nero fiddled and just burned down Rome.

The Democrats are about to set the Free World on fire.

Biden Meets with Palestinian Authority Leader Abbas, Continues to Embrace Our Enemies and Alienate Our Allies

Mideast Israel Palestinians US

President Biden on Friday endorsed an independent Palestinian state, although he conceded that such a historic development was “far away” and acknowledged the despair of the Palestinian people long frustrated in their fight for equal rights.

“Even if the ground is not ripe at this moment to restart negotiations, the United States and my administration will not give up on bringing the Palestinians and the Israelis, both sides, closer together,” Biden said during a joint appearance with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.

“I know that the goal of the two states seems so far away while indignities like restrictions on movement and travel or the daily worry of your children’s safety are real and they are immediate,” Biden added. “The Palestinian people are hurting now. You can just feel it. Your grief and frustration. In the United States, we can feel it.” (Courtesy LATimes.com)

The term “Palestine” (Falastin in Arabic) was an ancient name for the general geographic region that is more or less today’s Israel. The name derives from the Philistines, who originated from the eastern Mediterranean, and invaded the region in the 11th and 12th centuries B.C. The Philistines were apparently either from Greece, Crete, the Aegean Islands, and/or Ionia. They seem to be related to the Bronze Age Greeks, and they spoke a language akin to Mycenaean Greek. Their descendents, still living on the shores of the Mediterranean, greeted Roman invaders a thousand years later. The Romans corrupted the name to “Palestina,” and the area under the sovereignty of their city-states became known as “Philistia.” Six-hundred years later, the Arab invaders called the region “Falastin.”

Throughout subsequent history, the name remained only a vague geographical entity. There was never a nation of “Palestine,” never a people known as the “Palestinians,” nor any notion of “historic Palestine.” The region never enjoyed any sovereign autonomy, remaining instead under successive foreign sovereign domains from the Umayyads and Abbasids to the Fatimids, Ottomans, and British.

During the centuries of Ottoman rule, no Arabs under Turkish rule made any attempt to formulate an ideology of national identity, least of all the impoverished Arab peasantry in the region today known as Israel.

The term “Palestinian,” ironically, was used during the British Mandate period (1922-1948) to identify the Jews of British Mandatory Palestine. The Arabs of the area were known as “Arabs,” and their own designation of the region was balad esh-Sham (the province of Damascus). While some Arab nationalist writers, and coffee-shop intellectuals in Cairo or Beirut, developed the concept of Arab nationalism in large part as a response to Zionism, the terms “Palestine” and “Palestinian” were used in their traditional sense as geographic designations, not as national identities.

In early 1947, in fact, when the UN was exploring the possibility of the partition of British Mandatory Palestine into two states, one for the Jews and one for the Arabs, various Arab political and academic spokespersons spoke out vociferously against such a division because, they argued, the region was really a part of southern Syria, no such people or nation as “Palestinians” had ever existed, and it would be an injustice to Syria to create a state ex nihilo at the expense of Syrian sovereign territory.

During the 19 years from Israel’s victory in 1948 to Israel’s victory in the Six-Day War, all that remained of the UN’s partitioned territory to the “Arabs” of British Mandatory Palestine were the West Bank, under illegal Jordanian sovereignty, and the Gaza Strip, under Egyptian rule. Never during these 19 years did any Arab leader anywhere in the world argue for the right of national self-determination for the Arabs of these territories. A “Palestinian” nation and “Palestinian” people had not yet been invented.

Article 24 of the PLO’s [Palestine Liberation Organization] original founding document, the PLO Covenant, states: “This Organization (the PLO) does not exercise any regional sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, in the Gaza Strip or the Himmah area.” For Arafat before the Six-Day War, Palestine was Israel. It was not the West Bank or the Gaza Strip — because the West Bank and the Gaza Strip belonged to other Arab states, and the inhabitants of these areas were not numbered among the Palestinians whose “homeland” Arafat sought to “liberate.” The only “homeland” for the PLO in 1964 was the State of Israel. However, in response to the Six Day War, the PLO revised its Covenant on July 17, 1968, to remove the operative language of Article 24, thereby newly asserting a “Palestinian” claim of sovereignty to the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

This ploy was revealed, perhaps inadvertently, to the West in a public interview with Zahir Muhse’in, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, in a March 31, 1977, interview with the Amsterdam-based newspaper Trouw:

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

[Yasser] Arafat himself said the same thing, on many occasions. In his authorized biography (Terrorist or Peace Maker, by Alan Hart), he is quoted saying: “[T]he Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel.” (Courtesy DiscoverTheNetworks.org)

Biden and the Democrat Elite want somehow to force Israel to give half of their land to the Palestinians, reducing the size of their country back to the size it was before the 1967 war.

Biden and the Democrat Elite are hell-bent on appeasing the Radical Muslims of Hamas in the same manner in which they appeased the Taliban in Afghanistan, leading to the shameful pullout of our troops from that country, now a haven for Islamic Terrorists.

If the Biden Administration is allowed to finance the Palestinians, governed by Radical Islamic Terrorists, they will be putting a gun in the mouth of Lady Liberty and opening the door for an even bigger foreign policy embarrassment than Afghanistan.

Biden is already seen by World Leaders as a weak, vacillating, demented old fool.

Our enemies around the world are licking their chops while waiting for the perfect opportunity to attack us.

Biden and his clueless Foreign Policy Team continue to embrace our enemies while alienating our allies.

I don’t care whether you are a Republican or a Democrat…that should scare the wits out of you.

Israel has been our greatest ally for decades now.

For Biden, his handlers, and the Democrat Elite to follow the path of certain destruction which they are referring to as their “Middle Eastern Policy”, is a strategy of self-annihilation not seen since the Japanese Kamikazes descended from the skies above the Pacific Ocean in World War II 

Just like his pursuit of a Nuclear Bomb Deal with the Mad Mullahs of Iran, Biden and his Co-conspirators are not only sowing the seeds of their own destruction…they are placing America and the rest of the Free World in danger as well.

Walk away from the Islamic Terrorists of “Palestine”, #DemintiaJoe.

Aren’t your fellow Democrats stabbing you in the back enough?

Biden will give them what they want to know for a nominal price…and a job for Hunter.

Biden has not accomplished anything on his own since he got into office three decades ago.

He does not have the intestinal fortitude nor the brain cells left to stand up to Russia and his “business partners” in China.

I pray that Republican members of Congress do the right thing and contest the 2020 Presidential Election.

Otherwise, this will be the second remake of “Red Dawn”…only this time, both China and Russia will be “dropping in on us”.

At Rally in Alabama, Trump Calls Biden’s Botched Afghanistan Exit “Greatest Foreign Policy Humiliation” in US History, Says “Everything Woke Turns to Sh**”

Newsmax.com reports that

In a show of presidential strength, against President Joe Biden’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal, former President Donald Trump delivered pointed remarks at a packed Save America rally in Cullman, Alabama, on Saturday night.

“I warned the entire country of the disastrous consequences of a Biden presidency,” Trump said. “I understood; a lot of you understood it. I said Joe Biden would eliminate America’s borders in the middle of a pandemic. He did.

“I predicted that he would unleash a wave of violent crime that would turn our cities into a nightmare of killing and bloodshed.”

It was Trump’s fourth post-presidential rally and was billed to be the biggest one yet, particularly with national security questions rising amid the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

“Biden failed totally on the pandemic, and he’s now overseeing the greatest foreign policy humiliation in the history of the United States of America,” Trump said. “This is the greatest humiliation I’ve ever seen.

“Biden’s botched exit in Afghanistan is the most astonishing display of gross incompetence by a nation’s leader – perhaps at any time that anybody’s ever seen.

“Name another situation like this. Vietnam looks like a master class in strategy compared to Joe Biden’s catastrophe.”

Trump ripped Biden’s avoidance of media, not taking questions, and permitting the Taliban to quickly takeover Afghanistan.

“Joe Biden was going on vacation as Afghanistan was going to hell,” he continued. “This is what you get when you have weakness in the White House. You can’t have weakness in the White House.

“They have to respect your president. When I was president, we only had strength.”

Trump said this “would have never have happened” if he was still president, saying the Taliban respected American military “strength.”

“They knew we weren’t playing games,” Trump said. “They understood that right from the beginning. This proven record of America’s strength laid the groundwork to safely and responsibly bring our troops back home. Nobody was going to mess with us.

“And then this clown,” Trump continued, referring to Biden. “They rigged the whole deal.

“Now they’re taking advantage of us. And remember this: This isn’t stopping, this going to go on for a long time. This isn’t going away.”

Trump lamented the leaving behind of American citizens and allies, leaving the billions of dollars of American military equipment with the surrendering Afghanistan military, which declined to defend its country against the Taliban.

“When Biden took office, he foolishly tore up our really good plan,” Trump said. “It’s conditions. We do this. We do this. We do this. If you don’t do these things were not going to do it, and then we start dropping bombs all over the place.

“And they say, ‘you know what? We’re going to do it; we’ve decided to do it.’ We had a good understanding.”

Trump played a video of Gen. George Patton’s patriotic address to World War II troops before taking the stage, adding rips of failed generals and the White House Joints Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley.

“Let me ask you: Do you think that Gen. Patton was woke? I don’t think so,” Trump said to loud cheers. “I don’t think he was too woke. He was the exact opposite.

“You know what woke means? It means you’re a loser. Everything woke turns to sh**. It’s true.”

“Wokeness” is a pseudonym for oppressive Liberal Cultural Stupidity.

Trump was and IS right…about EVERYTHING.

I have to tell y’all…it was great to watch the 45th President of the United States of America do what he does best: communicate directly with average Americans.

Talk about a breath of fresh air,

I will take the brash honesty and “mean Tweets” of Donald J. Trump over the anti-American Policies, ineptitude, and prevarications of Dementia Joe and Heels Up Harris any day of the week.

Last night, American Citizens living in Alabama heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his first Presidential campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.

You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour after being elected in 2016 and his use of Twitter to speak directly to the American People.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the legendary Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As America witnessed last night, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump kept his promises.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as Sleepy Joe Biden, “Dr.” Jill Biden, and Kamala Harris do..

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to a Far Left Democrat party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the totalitarian retention of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made residents of Alabama, along with the rest of us average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation

And, gentle readers, to see and hear a Former, and possibly Future American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens is indeed a “radical change” from what this country is experiencing coming out of the Oval Office now.

Biden Calls Off Sending Two Warships to Black Sea, Putin Closes Off Kerch Strait in Response…You Call This a Strong Foreign Policy?

  • Image result for biden and putin

https://twitter.com/RIGHTZONE/status/1382777430507548672?s=20

Newsmax.com reports that

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced Russia would be closing off the Kerch Strait to foreign warships until fall following President Joe Biden’s announcement he would stop two U.S. warships headed to the area in an effort to lessen tensions, the New York Post reported.

Biden said Thursday that “now is the time to de-escalate” after he had announced sanctions on Russia tied to the SolarWinds hack that the United States blames on Russia and on Russia’s continued presence in Crimea, which was seized from Ukraine in 2014.

Biden described the sanctions, which are aimed at the Russian economy and dozens of individuals, as a “measured and proportionate” response to Moscow’s hostile actions against the United States.

The Biden administration had planned to send two destroyers — the USS Roosevelt and the USS Donald Cook — to the Black Sea over Russia’s continued military presence in Ukraine. But Moscow on Tuesday responded the United States should keep out of the area “for their own good.”

The Kerch Strait will be closed from next week until October, the Ukraine foreign ministry said Thursday.

Biden said that during a phone call earlier this week he was “clear with President Putin that we could have gone further” but added that Washington is “not looking to kick off a cycle of escalation and conflict with Russia.”

Biden said that with direct communication between him and Putin they could establish “a more effective relationship” and that the Kremlin leader “agreed” with this.

Biden’s proposed summit with Putin, which he said could take place “this summer in Europe,” would be a chance to “launch a strategic stability dialogue.”

Putin has not yet responded to the invitation but Biden said “our teams are discussing that possibility right now.”

Biden said there were “critical global challenges that require Russia and the United States to work together, including reining in nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea, ending this (coronavirus) pandemic globally, and meeting the existential crisis of climate change.”

Biden said he’d challenged Putin on Russia’s invasion of part of Ukraine and current massing of troops on another part of the border.

“I affirmed U.S. support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and I strongly urged him to refrain from any military action.”

However, Biden was less clear about U.S. policy over the almost complete Nord Stream 2 pipeline which is due to funnel Russian natural gas to Germany, while bypassing the existing export route through Ukraine.

There is a strong push in the United States to cripple the project with sanctions and prevent its completion, out of fear that it will give Moscow a dangerous grip on the energy supplies of U.S. allies in Europe.

However Thursday’s package of sanctions made no mention of Nord Stream 2 and Biden, when asked by a reporter, said it was “a complicated issue.”

“That still is an issue that is in play,” he added, without further explanation.

Uh huh.

I am old enough to remember when our enemies thought twice about challenging the President of the United States.

Oh, wait…that was only 4 months ago…when we actually had a President of the United States of America, instead of a marionette whose strings are being pulled by others behind the scenes.

Don’t you know that our enemies are laughing and rubbing their hands with glee over the fact that #DementiaJoe is sitting in the White House instead of President Donald J. Trump?

Let’s face it, boys and girls, the Biden Crime Family is owned lock, stock, and barrel by Communist China.

Biden is never going to challenge them on the World Stage.

Considering the Hunter Biden Scandal involving the Bidens and Ukraine, I am surprised that Biden backed away from standing up to Putin.

At this point, as his dementia advances, Biden is lucky to be able to string two sentences together, much less conduct any sort of Foreign Policy Negotiations with another World Power who has a string leader like Putin.

Considering who I believe is pulling Biden’s strings, it is no surprise that his failing Foreign Policy is reminiscent of that of the Obama Administration’s.

If you’ll remember the fiasco that was Foreign Policy under Obama, you will remember that the Middle East was on fire and Russia and China ran over us like a tank over a Coke can.

Biden will start talking about “drawing a red line in the sand”, next.

Until He Comes,

Kerry Meets With Iranians in Attempt to Salvage Nuke Deal…Can You Say “Sedition”?

Filkins-Stakes-of-the-Iran-Talks-1200

One’s concern with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue. – Saul Alinsky, “Rules For Radicals”, 1971

Here’s a story for those of you who still don’t believe in the “Deep State”.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that

Former Secretary of State John Kerry disclosed that he has been conducting rogue diplomacy with top Iranian officials to salvage the landmark nuclear deal and push the Islamic Republic to negotiate its contested missile program, according to recent remarks.

Kerry, in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt to promote his new book, said that he has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif—the former secretary’s onetime negotiating partner—three or four times in recent months behind the Trump administration’s back.

“I think I’ve seen him three or four times,” Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration’s authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country’s fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.

Kerry’s comments are in line with previous reporting on his behind-the-scenes attempts to save the nuclear deal and ensure that Iran continues receiving billions in cash windfalls. These payments were brought to a halt by the Trump administration when it abandoned the nuclear agreement and reimposed harsh sanctions on Iran that have nearly toppled its economy and sparked a popular revolution.

Kerry said he met Zarif in Norway, Munich, and other international forums.

As Iran continues to plot terror attacks across the globe and transport weapons to regional hotspots in Syria and Yemen, Kerry has tried to help Zarif preserve the nuclear agreement with European nations.

“What I have done is try to elicit from him [Zarif] what Iran might be willing to do to change the dynamic of the Middle East for the better,” Kerry said. “How does one resolve Yemen, what do you do to try and get peace in Syria? Those are the things that really are preoccupying him because those are the impediments to Iran’s ability to convince people its ready to embrace something different.”

Kerry said he has offered blunt talk to Zarif in order to push the regime to accept restrictions on its foreign interventionism.

“I’ve been very blunt to Foreign Minister Zarif. I told him, ‘Look, you guys need to recognize the world does not appreciate what’s happening with missiles, what’s happening with Hezbollah, what’s happening with Yemen,'” Kerry recounted. “You’re supporting an ongoing struggle there.”

Iran has said “they’re prepared to negotiate and resolve these issues, but the [Trump] administration’s taken a very different tact.”

Criticizing the current White House, Kerry lamented that “it appears right now, as if the administration is hell-bent … to pursue a regime change strategy” in Iran that would “bring the economy down and try to isolate further.”

The former secretary of state cautioned the current administration, saying “the United States historically has not had a great record in regime change strategies, number one, and number two that makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for any Iranian leader to sit down and negotiate anything because they’re not going to do it in a capitulatory situation.”

Iranian leaders have said multiple times in recent months that they will not take any meetings with Trump or his administration.

Back on December 4th of last year, the New York Times published an op-ed titled “Why The Trump Team Should Fear The Logan Act”. In this preposterous bit of wish-casting is found this gem…

The Logan Act makes it a crime for a United States citizen, “without authority” from the federal government, to communicate with foreign officials in order to “influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government” in a dispute with the United States or “to defeat the measures of the United States.” A conviction can result in a prison sentence of up to three years.

The statute, which has been on the books since the early days of the republic, reflects an important principle. The president is — as the Supreme Court has said time and again — “the sole organ of the nation in its external relations.” If private citizens could hold themselves out as representatives of the United States and work at cross-purposes with the president’s own diplomatic objectives, the president’s ability to conduct foreign relations would be severely hampered.

The thing is, gentle readers, you can bet that John F. Kerry did not think of “reaching out” to the Iranians on his own.

What has been conveniently forgotten, thanks to the Liberal Mass Freak-Out over the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale, is the fact that Barack Hussein Obama, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist himself, has set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House and has even moved his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

When this was first reported. during his Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show, Rush Limbaugh stated on his March 2, 2017 Program that,

…The story is Valerie Jarrett moving in to the Obama family home. What the hell’s up with that?

There’s a story here is about how Obama and his people are running the resistance operation from that home, and that’s why she’s moved in. The story here is the Democrat Party being blown out of the water in election after election after election. The story here is Barack Obama’s agenda has been totally reputed by the American people. It has been rejected in 2010. It was rejected in 2012. It was rejected in 2016. It was sent packing. The story here is that Barack Obama is humiliated and angry and embarrassed that his effort to transform the United States of America into some kind of socialist paradise has been interrupted, that he was the architect of the Democrat Party defeat. And that cannot stand for the history books! And so this story is all about the Democrat Party trying to rewrite history and make it look like they actually won were it not for the cheating of the Russians and Trump.

They’re trying to convince the Europeans of this. They’re doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump, his administration, his victory. That is the story that people need to focus on because there’s evidence for that. There is evidence at every town hall protest. There is evidence all over this country every day that this sabotage is going on.

It appears the story that El Rushbo was referring to was 100% correct.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority
That being said, the intentional interference in the Foreign Policy of the United States of America by Former Secretary of State John F. Kerry though his rogue “negotiations” with the hostile Radical Islamic Rogue Nation of Iran can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy  is detailed as follows..
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens are under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by members of our own Department of Justice.

I believe that it is time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.

Trump Pushes NATO Countries to Pay Their Fair Share

Nato-summit-Trump-urges-members-urged-to-double-defence-spending

FoxNews.com reports that

NATO leaders pledged their “unwavering commitment” to boost defense spending on Wednesday, following stern words from President Trump criticizing European leaders for spending too little.

The U.S. and European allies signed a declaration stating they are “committed to improving the balance of sharing the costs and responsibilities of alliance membership.”

The declaration comes after confrontational and testy discussions between Trump and other NATO leaders.

Since the election, Trump has criticized NATO countries for not paying their fair share, while suggesting he would only come to the defense of NATO nations that fulfilled their financial obligation.

Trump also has pressed NATO countries to fulfill their goal of spending 2 percent of their gross domestic products on defense by 2024. NATO estimates that 15 members, or just over half, will meet that benchmark based on current trends. 

As NATO vows to pursue those targets, Trump is seeking even more. 

Via Twitter, he called for members to meet the 2 percent commitment immediately. And in a statement Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump, at the summit, “suggested that countries not only meet their commitment of 2 percent of their GDP on defense spending, but that they increase it to 4 percent. Trump wants to see our allies share more of the burden and at a very minimum meet their already stated obligations.”

Before sitting down for the first official meeting of the day, the president engaged in a testy exchange with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. He pressed why the U.S. should continue to pay money to the military alliance while the countries purchase energy from Moscow.

“We are stronger together,” Stoltenberg said, while acknowledging there can be differences among allies.

“But how can you be together when you’re getting energy from the group you want protection from?” Trump responded, using Germany as an example. Trump challenged Stoltenberg to explain why Berlin was getting energy from Russia, and asserted that Germany was “totally controlled” by and “captive to Russia” over a pipeline project.

That pipeline project, Nord Stream 2 pipeline, doubles the amount of gas Russia can send directly to Germany, while sidestepping transit countries like Ukraine. The project is opposed by the U.S. and some European Union members.

“We’re supposed to protect you against Russia and yet you make this deal with Russia,” Trump said of Germany. “Explain that. It can’t be explained.”

Trump followed up on Twitter: “What good is NATO if Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars for gas and energy? Why are there only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment? The U.S. is paying for Europe’s protection, then loses billions on Trade. Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025.”

Former Secretary of State John Kerry later blasted Trump’s comments about Germany as “strange” and “counterproductive.”

“It was disgraceful, destructive, and flies in the face of the actual interests of the United States of America,” Kerry said in a statement, claiming Trump “set America back this morning.”

I am sure that they did seem strange to Former Secretary of State Kerry.

Trump is actually conducting business as an AMERICAN PRESIDENT, putting OUR interests above those of every other country.

Trump’s Foreign Policy is 180 degrees opposite from Obama’s “Smart Power” which was anything but.

And, his approach is succeeding.

Under Obama, America was viewed as a patsy, a country to be taken advantage of.

Under the leadership of successful businessman and proven negotiator President Donald J. Trump, other nations are finding out quickly that there is a new sheriff in town. One who is not afraid to speak the truth and to tell it like it is.

America has been the world’s piggy bank for way too long.

For the nations comprising NATO to expect America to continue to send our taxpayers’ hard-earned money to them to pay for protection against a nation whom they are buying energy from, makes them appear to be gold-diggers who are expecting Uncle Sam to be their sugar daddy while they are catting around with another guy.

The cries of anguish from John Kerry and the rest of the losers in the Democratic Elite  mean that Trump is right over the target.

Not only is he erasing Obama’s legacy of horrible domestic policies, he is now working hard to erase the perception that Obama and his Administration left that we are the world’s doormat and piggy bank.

In other words, the 45th President of the United States of America is doing exactly what we elected him to do.

PUTTING AMERICA FIRST.

Trump Appoints Bolton as National Security Advisor, Dems Whine

bolton-john-1

Everybody pursues their national interests. The only one who gets blamed for it is the United States. – John Bolton

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced Thursday that former United Nations Amb. John Bolton will replace Gen. H.R. McMaster as his National Security Adviser effective April 9 — the latest in a growing list of White House staff shakeups over the past year.

“I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9,” Trump tweeted.

The president’s announcement came after months of speculation over whether McMaster would resign or be fired from his post.

Bolton told Fox News’ “The Story” Thursday evening, “I didn’t really expect that announcement this afternoon, but it’s obviously a great honor. It’s always an honor to serve our country and I think particularly in these times internationally, it’s a particular honor.”

But on Thursday evening, a White House official said that the president and McMaster “mutually agreed” that he would resign from his post. The two have been discussing this for some time, the official said, noting that the timeline was expedited as they both felt it was important to have a new team in place, instead of constant speculation.

A White House official said the decision was not related to any one moment or incident, but rather the result of ongoing conversations between the two.

The official told Fox News that the move has been contemplated for some time, and was just about the “worst-kept secret” in Washington.

The president took his time to find a replacement for McMaster because he wanted the “right person.”

While Trump spoke to Bolton many times about the job, the deal was cemented in an Oval Office meeting between the two Thursday afternoon.

Bolton told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that the process of his hiring “came to a conclusion this afternoon, but … there’s still a transition. I look forward to working with H.R. and his team and the other senior members of the president’s team on national security and I have no doubt there’s a lot of work to do.”

Bolton has previously served as a Fox News contributor, as well as in the in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, and served as a Bush lawyer during the 2000 Florida recount.

A strong supporter of the Iraq war and an advocate for aggressive use of American power in foreign policy, Bolton was unable to win Senate confirmation after his nomination to the U.N. post alienated many Democrats and even some Republicans. He resigned after serving 17 months as a Bush “recess appointment,” which allowed him to hold the job on a temporary basis without Senate confirmation. The position of White House national security adviser does not require Senate confirmation.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., criticized Bolton’s appointment.

“Mr. Bolton’s tendency to try to solve every geopolitical problem with the American military first is a troubling one,” Schumer said. “I hope he will temper his instinct to commit the men and women of our armed forces to conflicts around the globe, when we need to be focused on building the middle class here at home.”

Because Obama, Clinton’s, and Kerry’s Neville Chamberlain Style of Foreign Policy worked so well.

“I dare you to cross that Red Line! I double-dog dare you!”

Over the next several days, the Dems will be all over the Main Stream Media, having a temper tantrum over the President’s choice of John Bolton for his next National Security Advisor.

The National Security Advisor manages the daily creation and implementation of foreign policy and acts as a foreign policy advisor. Bolton will serve in an advisory role to the secretary of state and the secretary of defense, as well as the president.

That being the case, in order to put the upcoming Democrat temper tantrum over Bolton’s appointment in perspective, I believe that is important to remember the disaster that was America’s Foreign Policy under Barack Hussein Obama.

Before Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) ascended to the throne of The Regime, he did something no other candidate for American President has ever done.  He campaigned in Europe, where he was treated like a rock star, by both the Europeans and the sycophantic Main Stream Media.  This set the stage for Obama’s Foreign Policy efforts as President.

There were so many issues that weakened America on the world stage as Obama pursued his Foreign Policy, it’s hard to know where to begin.  Come along as I try to relate a few high (low?) points.

1.  The World Apology Tour – Shortly after he took office, President Obama set off for the first of a two-part “World Apology Tour”.   After less than 100 days, he had apologized on three continents for what he viewed as the sins of America and previous presidents.

Per Karl Rove:

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe.  In Prague, he said America has “a moral responsibility to act” on arms control because only the U.S. had “used a nuclear weapon.” In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by “just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy” — as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not “pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors” because we “failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas.”

By apologizing to the world, then-White House Press Secretary Robert “Baghdad Bob” Gibbs said that Scooter had “changed the image of America around the world” and made the U.S. “safer and stronger.”

Having the British call him “President Pantywaist” made us “safer and stronger”?

2.  Global War on Terror –  In a memo e-mailed the week of March 25th, 2009, in the middle of the World Apology Tour, to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department’s office of security review proclaimed that “this administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror’ [GWOT.] Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’ ”  And so it began.

On Thursday, June 4th, 2009 at the University of Cairo, Obama addressed the Muslim World.  Here is an excerpt from the 6:35 a.m. speech:

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today. People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith-based lives upon the persuasion of the mind, heart, and soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it is being challenged in many different ways.

Among some Muslims, there is a disturbing tendency to measure one’s own faith by the rejection of another’s. The richness of religious diversity must be upheld – whether it is for Maronites in Lebanon or the Copts in Egypt. And fault lines must be closed among Muslims as well, as the divisions between Sunni and Shia have led to tragic violence, particularly in Iraq.

Freedom of religion is central to the ability of peoples to live together. We must always examine the ways in which we protect it. For instance, in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.

Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit – for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.

Scooter believed that by reaching out to the Muslim world through changing and softening our terminology as it pertained to the Jihad declared against the United States by Muslim Extremists, his administration would make huge inroads in America’s relationship with the Islamic World.  It actually accomplished nothing but to encourage our enemies, as evidenced by the increased number of attacks by Muslim Extremists here in our country during his time as President.

3.  Smart Power! – At her confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State nominee Hillary Clinton said:

We must use what has been called smart power, the full range of tools at our disposal—diplomatic, economic, military, political, legal, and cultural—picking the right tool, or combination of tools, for each situation. With smart power, diplomacy will be the vanguard of our foreign policy. This is not a radical idea. The ancient Roman poet Terence declared that “in every endeavor, the seemly course for wise men is to try persuasion first.” The same truth binds wise women as well.

Excessive humility has never been one of Hil’s problems.

Of course, Smart Power led to Arab Spring, which replaced Moderate Muslim Dictators, with Radical Muslim Dictators, backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Great plan, y’all.

4.  Afghanistan – When Obama took office, he announced that Afghanistan was the true center of extremist activities.  He then told us that the Overseas Contingency Operation would be making a hard pivot from the main focus being on Iran to the main focus being on Afghanistan.  From there, he decided that the mountainous country of Pakistan (pronounced by the president, Pock-ee-stahn) was where all the truly evil Extremists were hiding.  He had two problems with this strategy:  the mountainous geography and unfriendly government of  Pock-ee-stahn.  Obama was advised by his military advisors that the best strategy was to use unmanned drones to attack Taliban (pronounced Tawl-ee-bohn by Obama) strongholds.  While the drones were very successful in killing members of the Tawl-ee-bohn, they have occasionally killed civilians as well.   That did not endeared us to that country’s government. Obama subsequently pulled out the majority of troops in Afghanistan, only recently to have had to send troops back in again.

While no President can control the actions of other countries come in their own affairs, the position of President of the United States has not historically been referred to as the Leader of the Free World for no reason.

That position has historically been the Vanguard in the fight against despotism and tyranny.

Unfortunately, for lovers of freedom the world over, instead of being the leader that the world and America itself needed, Barack Hussein Obama instead was an example of the Peter Principle.

He rose to his level of incompetence.

As I mentioned earlier, Obama believed in a “Chamberlain-esque” Foreign Policy of appeasement, consisting of vague warnings, pay-offs, and drawing red lines in the sand.

It didn’t work.

President Donald J. Trump has shown over the past 15 months that he believes in and is a practitioner of President Ronald Reagan’s Foreign Policy of “Peace Through Strength.”

New National Security Advisor John Bolton shares that philosophy as well.

And, that upsets the Democrat Elite to no end.

Knowing that, I feel safer already.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

Classified E-mails From Huma to Hil Found on Weiner’s Laptop. Who Else Did Huma Possibly Share This Info With? – What They Don’t Want You to Know

untitled (213)

“Donald Trump is leading in every national poll to be the Republican nominee for president. And earlier today, he released his latest policy proposal: to ban all Muslims from entering our country. I’m a proud Muslim — but you don’t have to share my faith to share my disgust.” Huma Abedin, December 2015

FoxNews.com reports that

The State Department on Friday released a batch of work-related emails from the account of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin that were discovered by the FBI on a laptop belonging to Abedin’s estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, near the end of the 2016 presidential campaign.

At least four of the documents released Friday are marked “classified.”

One November 2010 document that was released shows Abedin forwarding an email to an address titled “Anthony Campaign.”

Former FBI Director James Comey said during a congressional hearing earlier this year that he believed Abedin regularly forwarded emails to Weiner for him to print out so she could give them to Clinton.

Comey famously said in July 2016 that Clinton was “extremely careless” in her handling of classified emails on a private server.

That 2010 email was a “callsheet” to Clinton about her upcoming call to Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal to warn about an imminent leak of U.S. diplomatic cables — so-called Cablegate — from WikiLeaks. 

The rest of the document is redacted and marked classified as of August 2015.

Abedin is a longtime aide to Clinton who worked at the State Department and on Clinton’s campaign.

The emails indicate that Clinton was still invested in party politics despite her cabinet position. In one April 2011 email, Abedin informs her that Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been selected as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

“Is she leaving the Congress?” Clinton replied.

It also shows Abedin in her role as Clinton’s gatekeeper.

“Love when people send her schedule stuff direct,” Abedin sarcastically wrote in an email to a colleague in December 2011, after someone emailed Clinton directly to ask her to speak at a conference.

At the time of the emails, Abedin was married to Weiner, a onetime Democratic congressman who began a 21-month prison sentence last month after being convicted of sexting a 15-year-old girl.

Abedin has since filed for divorce.

The Abedin emails jolted the 2016 presidential race after Comey told Congress just days before the election that FBI agents had found more of Clinton’s messages. 

The emails were found on Weiner’s laptop, as the FBI investigated its sexting case against him.

The discovery of the records reopened the case against Clinton several months after Comey said he wasn’t recommending any charges be filed in the case.

The conservative group Judicial Watch filed suit against the State Department for all official department emails sent or received by Abedin on a non-state.gov email address.

“This is a major victory,” the group’s president, Tom Fitton, said in a Friday statement. “After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents.”

Fitton added, “That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law.”

FoxNews.com also reports that

A first cousin of Huma Abedin, a former aide to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and soon to be ex-wife of disgraced former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, was convicted Tuesday in a fraud case involving fake emails.

Omar Amanat, 44, and his colleague Kaleil Tuzman face more than a decade in prison after a jury in New York City found the pair guilty of cooking the books and defrauding shareholders of the technology company Kit Digital between 2010 and 2012.

Amanat’s brother, Irfan Amana, was also arrested in the United Arab Emirates and faces charges of fraud with the same tech firm, the New York Post reported.  

Judge Paul Gardephe revoked Amanat’s bail after Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrea Griswold said he was a flight risk, and chastised the father of six children for his “disregard and a disdain for the courts and legal process.”

“The evidence of their criminal schemes was so overwhelming that Amanat actually tried to fool the jury by introducing fake emails into the record as exculpatory ‘evidence’ in this trial,” Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said in a release. “Unfortunately for Tuzman and Amanat, the jury saw through their tangled web of lies, convicting them on all counts.”

Evidence against Amanat that involved him telling a government informant of his relation to Abedin was withheld from the jury after his defense lawyers successfully argued it could unfairly influence the jurors.

“Again, particularly in New York, jurors are likely to have strong opinions regarding the Clinton campaign and certain individuals connected to the campaign,” the lawyers wrote. “Both supporters and those politically opposed to Secretary Clinton could have reasons to be prejudiced against Mr. Amanat based on his indirect connection to her.”

According to the Post, the mothers of Abedin and Amanat are sisters.

Amanat was a successful tech entrepreneur and owned stakes in a film studio that produced Hollywood blockbusters such as the “Twilight” movies.

In November, Abedin’s estranged husband, Weiner, began serving a 21-month sentence following his conviction of sending sexual texts to a 15-year-old girl.

“So, what?”, you ask.

Well, gentle readers, here’s where the plot sickens…and this is what they don’t want you to know.

Speaking straight from the heart, as an American Citizen, I find it beyond the pale that, during the time of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, someone with direct ties to our sworn enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, had access to the highest level of Top Secret Information contained in our State Department, being sent from her and to her over Secretary Clinton’s own unsecured e-mail Server.

And, the thing is, she not only had access through her job as Assistant to Secretary of State Clinton, she also had access to government information through pillow talk with her husband, then-Congressman and “Professional Sexter” Anthony Weiner.

What if the “King of Selfies-That-No-One-Wanted-to-See” Anthony Weiner was not the only member of Huma’s family seeing classified e-mails possibly regarding America’s Foreign Policy?

Ms. Abedin has more troubling familial connections than her jail-bird first cousin.

For those of you who are not aware of  Ms. Abedin’s troubling past and familial connections, here are some bullet points, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org…

Huma Abedin was born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

…From 1997 until sometime before early 1999, Abedin, while still interning at the White House, was an executive board member of George Washington University’s (GWU) Muslim Students Association (MSA), heading the organization’s “Social Committee.”

It is noteworthy that in 2001-02, soon after Abedin left that executive board, the chaplain and “spritual guide” of GWU’s MSA was Anwar al-Awlaki, the al Qaeda operative who ministered to some of the men who were among the 9/11 hijackers. Another chaplain at GWU’s MSA (from at least October 1999 through April 2002) was Mohamed Omeish, who headed the International Islamic Relief Organization, which has been tied to the funding of al Qaeda.

[As detailed in the previous article] From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as the assistant editor of its in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA).

****At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef’s active presence at IMMA. Abedin’s last six years at the Institute (2002-2008) were spent as a JMMA editorial board member; for one of those years, 2003, Naseef and Abedin served together on that board.****

Abedin went on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy in early December 2011. When she returned to work in June 2012, the State Department granted her an arrangement that allowed her to do outside consulting work as a “special government employee,” even as she remained a top advisor in the Department. Abedin did not disclose on her financial report either the arrangement or the$135,000 she earned from it, in violation of a law mandating that public officials disclose significant sources of income. Abedin’s outside clients included the U.S. State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, and Teneo (a firm co-founded by Doug Band, a former counselor for Bill Clinton). Good-government groups warned of the potential conflict-of-interest inherent in an arrangement where a government employee maintains private clients.

On February 1, 2013—Hillary Clinton’s final day as Secretary of State—Abedin resigned her post as Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Yet she would continue to serve as a close aide to Clinton.

On March 1, 2013, Abedin was tapped to run Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, comprised of a six-person “transition office” located in Washington.

Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

Huma’s sister, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), is an assistant editor with JMMA, where she served alongside Huma prior to the latter’s departure.

Being the “proud Muslim” that Huma Abedin has proclaimed herself to be, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that the information she shared with Hillary Clinton also found its way to her “troubling Familial Affiliations”?

Which brings up a troubling question:

Considering her familial ties, how deeply was Ms. Abedin involved in “BenghaziGate”?

Just how many secrets did Ms. Abedin pass along to her family?

I believe that this is certainly a concern worth investigating by the Trump Administration.

To summarize, gentle readers, the gun is smoking.

It is way past time to end Mueller’s Witch Hunt over the fictitious notion of possible Trump-Russia Collusion.

They’ve been hunting the wrong witch.

It is time to haul Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin in

…and, get two witches for the price of one.

Reclaiming America’s Place in the World: “Smart Power” is Gone. Has”Peace Through Strength” Returned?

rextillersonfeuerherdjapan

For those of you who are, or have been, parents…have you ever tried to clean up the mess of a teenager’s bedroom?

Then you know how President Donald J. Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson feel and they start to try to clean up the Foreign Policy Disaster that Obama, Clinton, and Kerry left behind.

Foxnews.com  filed the following report yesterday…

EXCLUSIVE: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, refused to rule out increased weaponization and even nuclearization of America’s East Asian allies to deter North Korean aggression. “We’re exchanging views,” Tillerson said, while standing a few feet within what is technically North Korean territory inside what is known as the Joint Security Area.

“Nothing has been taken off the table,” he said, when asked whether he would rule out nuclearization of the peninsula, during the interview with Fox News.

Tillerson, who’s called the past 20 years of diplomacy toward North Korea a failure, has said the world needs a new strategy.

“Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended,” said Tillerson in a later press availability in Seoul with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se.

“If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action that option is on the table,” Tillerson also said, adding the U.S. wants to avoid military conflict and hopes other measures convince North Korea to suspend its weapons programs. 

President Trump, bolstering his secretary of state’s comments, tweeted Friday morning that North Korea is “behaving very badly.” 

Then-candidate Donald Trump received criticism when, in a March 2016 interview with The New York Times, he said of nuclear weapons: “would I rather have North Korea have them with Japan sitting there having them also? You may very well be better off if that’s the case.”

In a tweet, Trump later denied he said more countries should have nuclear weapons. Tillerson is in the middle of a trip to Japan, South Korea and China, largely to discuss coordinated efforts to halt North Korea’s advancing nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

He travels to China Friday, after pressuring that government to further curtail the threat from its ally, calling its approach to North Korean aggression “troubling” and “inappropriate”.

As Secretary of State Tillerson begins the job of reclaiming America’s rightful position as a Global Leader, on behalf of President Trump, I believe that is important to remember the disaster that was America’s Foreign Policy under Barack Hussein Obama.

Before Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) ascended to the throne of The Regime, he did something no other candidate for American President has ever done.  He campaigned in Europe, where he was treated like a rock star, by both the Europeans and the sycophantic Main Stream Media.  This set the stage for Obama’s Foreign Policy efforts as President.

There were so many issues that weakened America on the world stage as Obama pursued his Foreign Policy, it’s hard to know where to begin.  Come along as I try to relate a few high (low?) points.

1.  The World Apology Tour – Shortly after he took office, President Obama set off for the first of a two-part “World Apology Tour”.   After less than 100 days, he had apologized on three continents for what he viewed as the sins of America and previous presidents.

Per Karl Rove:

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe.  In Prague, he said America has “a moral responsibility to act” on arms control because only the U.S. had “used a nuclear weapon.” In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by “just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy” — as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not “pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors” because we “failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas.”

By apologizing to the world, then- White House Press Secretary Robert “Baghdad Bob” Gibbs said that Scooter had “changed the image of America around the world” and made the U.S. “safer and stronger.”

Having the British call him “President Pantywaist” made us “safer and stronger”?

2.  Global War on Terror –  In a memo e-mailed the week of March 25th, 2009, in the middle of the World Apology Tour, to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department’s office of security review proclaimed that “this administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror’ [GWOT.] Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’ ”  And so it began.

On Thursday, June 4th, 2009 at the University of Cairo, Obama addressed the Muslim World.  Here is an excerpt from the 6:35 a.m. speech:

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today.

3.  Smart Power! – At her confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State nominee Hillary Clinton said:

We must use what has been called smart power, the full range of tools at our disposal—diplomatic, economic, military, political, legal, and cultural—picking the right tool, or combination of tools, for each situation. With smart power, diplomacy will be the vanguard of our foreign policy. This is not a radical idea. The ancient Roman poet Terence declared that “in every endeavor, the seemly course for wise men is to try persuasion first.” The same truth binds wise women as well.

Excessive humility has never been one of Hil’s problems.

Of course, Smart Power led to Arab Spring, which replaced Moderate Muslim Dictators, with Radical Muslim Dictators, backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Great plan, y’all.

4.  Afghanistan – When Obama took office, he announced that Afghanistan was the true center of extremist activities.  He then told us that the Overseas Contingency Operation would be making a hard pivot from the main focus being on Iran to the main focus being on Afghanistan.  From there, he decided that the mountainous country of Pakistan (pronounced by the president, Pock-ee-stahn) was where all the truly evil Extremists were hiding.  He had two problems with this strategy:  the mountainous geography and unfriendly government of  Pock-ee-stahn.  Obama was advised by his military advisors that the best strategy was to use unmanned drones to attack Taliban (pronounced Tawl-ee-bohn by Obama) strongholds.  While the drones were very successful in killing members of the Tawl-ee-bohn, they have occasionally killed civilians as well.   That did not endeared us to that country’s government. Obama subsequently pulled out the majority of troops in Afghanistan, only recently to have had to send troops back in again.

While no President can control the actions of other countries come in their own affairs, the position of President of the United States has not historically been referred to as the Leader of the Free World for no reason.

That position has historically been the Vanguard in the fight against despotism and tyranny.

Unfortunately, for lovers of freedom the world over, instead of being the leader that the world and America itself needed, Barack Hussein Obama instead was an example of the Peter Principle.

He rose to his level of incompetence.

Obama believed in a “Chamberlain-esque” Foreign Policy of appeasement, consisting of vague warnings, pay-offs, and drawing red lines in the sand.

It didn’t work.

President Donald J. Trump appears to be adopting President Ronald Reagan’s Foreign Policy of “Peace Through Strength.”

Knowing that, I feel safer already.
