A Perspective from America's diplomatic legend: Henry Kissinger

I wish everyone would read this 94-year-old Henry Kissinger observation on President Trump:


Recently, Henry Kissinger did an interview and said vary amazing things regarding President Trump.  He starts with: "Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven't seen before"!  The former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger gives us a new understanding of President Donald Trump's foreign policy and predicts its success:

"Liberals and all those who favor (Hillary) Clinton will never admit it. They will never admit that he is the one true leader. The man is doing changes like never before and does all of it for the sake of this nation's people.   After eight years of tyranny, we finally see a difference."

Kissinger knows it and he continues with:
"Every country now has to consider two things: One, their perception that the previous president, or the outgoing president, basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessments of their necessities.

And secondly, that there is a new president who's asking a lot of unfamiliar questions. And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it.

Then Kissinger puts it bluntly:  
"Trump puts America and its people first. This is why people love him and this is why he will remain in charge for so long. There is not a single thing wrong with him and people need to open their eyes."  When he boasts that he has a "bigger red button" than Kim Jung Un does, he so transcends the mealy-mouthed rhetoric of the past, thereby forcing a new recognition of American power.

Kissinger once wrote:
"The weak grow strong by effrontery - The strong grow weak through inhibition!"    No sentence better captures the U.S.-North Korea relationship.
Trump is discarding the inhibitions and calling the bluff on North Korea's effrontery: His point is that the contrast of American retreat under Obama and its new assertion of power under Trump creates a new dynamic that every one of our allies and of our enemies must consider.
Our allies grew complacent with Obama's passivity and now are fearful due to Trump's activism. And they must balance the two in developing their policies:

They realize that the old assumptions, catalyzed by Bush 43's preoccupation with Iraq and Obama's refusal to lead are obsolete.  So, Trump is forcing a new calculus with a new power behind American interests.  Those - here and abroad - who rode the old apple cart worry about its being toppled.

But, as Kissinger so boldly stated: "Trump is the one true leader in world affairs and he is forcing policy changes that put America first! "

This is the most accurate statement of what the American  Citizens who live outside of the swamp want and expect from their government.

I like the list of 13 things that I, as a senior American citizen, want. Trump is at least talking about issues that most Americans are concerned about.

My mantra about Trump is this: Truthfully, We are in agreement with most of what he says.  We are getting older and our tickers aren't what they used to be, but what matters is that he covers most of the 13 things we as seniors want, at least I do for sure

1.  Hillary: held accountable for her previous wrongs!
2. Put "GOD" back in America!
3. Borders: Closed or tightly guarded!
4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else
5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW!
6. Language: English!
7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights!
8. Drug-Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before & during Welfare!
9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens
10. Budget: Balanced
11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money! Charge them for our help! We need it here.
12.  Term limits for congress
13. "RESPECT OUR MILITARY AND OUR FLAG!"  And our law enforcement.
DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Romans 12:21 (KJV) Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good

Godspeed and may

The 2018 Mid-Term Elections

I think that the GOP did amazingly well.  The “Blue Wave” that the Dems and the Fake Media and Obama and Oprah and other celebrities concocted never materialized and instead served to encourage more GOP supporters to vote.  Once again the Dems attempted to pull a Machiavellian maneuver that only backfired.  Instead of encouraging its members to come out and vote, it encouraged its opponents to do so while allowing its own members to relax knowing that a Blue Wave was eminent.


This is reminiscent of the 2016 election in which everyone knew Hillary was going to win and many of the Dems decided to just stay home and watch the “glass ceiling” get broken at the Javits Convention Center in NYC on TV.


Another great Dems miscalculation was sitting on Dr. Ford’s letter for 45 days in an attempt to delay confirming Judge Kavanaugh until after the midterm election.  That thoughtless selfish action not only denied Dr. Ford the proper FBI investigation that she sought, but coalesced the GOP and others into voting against the Dems.  In fact, the very close races that the Dems lost for the midterm elections were due to their Kavanaugh no vote.  The one Democrat that voted yes, Senior WV Senator Joe Manchin was rewarded with a win in the midterm election.


A similar broken Machiavellian execution was responsible for the Dems loss in 2016 when Crooked Hillary purposely delayed providing the documents that the FBI had requested for two years and then wiping her disk of classified emails.  That misguided strategy resulted in delaying the FBI investigation results to close to the eve of the election, exactly the opposite of her intention.


They just don’t get it.  Now they think they have a victory when really this is just a disguise, like the Trojan Horse, in which now the GOP is given the superb foil in Pelosi as Speaker of the House to rally the GOP troops for the greater of races, the 2020 re-election of our great President.


All the while the Senate is now strengthened so that a single Senator or two cannot hold the Senate hostage to confirm the President’s third SCOTUS Justice for a solid 6-3 majority for decades.


Considering the enormous loss that Obama suffered for his midterm election, this was chump-change.  Of course the Fake Media will never report that.  If the Fake Media wasn’t so fake it would report that Obama lost 63 House seats almost twice that of the President and gave away 6 Senate seats and remind the public that Obama was a lifelong politician and the President is a Rookie.


If that wasn’t enough, Bill Clinton, another lifelong politician, not only gave up 54 House seats, 9 Senate seats and 10 gubernatorial seats, he gave away years of continuous House control and both houses of Congress for the first time in 40 years.  It was called “The Republican Revolution” with its “Contract with America.”


Yet our President in only his second year as a politician, gained seats in the Senate against a barrage of Dem campaigning including for the first time ever the previous president and celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and Taylor Swift.


The facts speak for themselves even if the Fake Media doesn’t.


Yup, I’d say this was a good night!

The Democrats’ Continued Anger

image131

President Trump, the greatest president ever!

The 2016 election is over and the people have spoken.  It is time for the Democrats to just get over it and support our duly-elected President.


Anger is never good.  It clouds your judgment and actions.  Our President is a good man and truly loves this country.  He doesn’t even take a salary.  He is destined to go down in history as our greatest president.  He has accomplished more in a year and a half than most presidents do in 8 years.  He has lowered taxes, stopped ISIS, and stopped North Korea from shooting misiles and testing nuclear weapons.  He even got our hostages back and our soldiers‘ remains—all for free.  The previous administration sent a $1.4B pallet of cash to the Iranians and “traded” the release of 5 top enemy prisoners for an American deserter than cost American lives looking for him.


And the Supreme Court, he has already installed two justices insuring a 5-4 conservative majority for decades.  By the end of his 8-year term he will have installed a third insuring a 6-3 conservative majority for many decades.


Finally our presidnet isn’t a lifelong politician but a true successful businessman.  He is someone who can run our country like a business when it comes to trade with other countries which have been taking 500B to 1T dollars a year from us, not through fair trade but by closing their markets to our goods, levying high tariffs, and taking our intellectual property.  Well that honeymoon is coming to an end!


For years the Europeans had us paying a disproportionate amount to NATO—totally crazy!  We should pay half the percentage of the lowest paying member since we are overseas.  Right now we are paying over twice the highest paying member.  If the members of NATO don’t want to pay, then they mustn’t think that NATO is that important.  And they are right there next to the Russians.  So why should we pay more than them?  Only this president had the courage and guts to call them out on this.  That’s what we need, a tough leader!

Republicans, the Pro-Women and Pro-“Me Too” Party

One only needs to see what happened to Dr. Ford during the Kavanaugh confirmation to see how the Democrats trashed this poor lady after she mustered the courage to come forward.


First, she gave her private letter accounting the assault to her Democrat Californian politician who gave it to the Democrat California Senator, Ms. Feinstein.  She did this for a reason.  She did this so that these Democrat women leaders who purport to represent and care for fellow women would look into the matter, preferably using their influence to get the FBI to investigate the accusations.  This would not be the first time the FBI undertook a secret process to protect a victim‘s identity.  This is what Dr. Ford wanted.


Then, the Democrats sat on her letter and did nothing.  They did not investigate anything.  They say that sitting on it was Dr. Ford’s wish but that is not true.  Her wish was to have her claim investigated in secrecy not to have nothing done.  Heck, she could have done that herself.


Second the Democrats hosed Dr. Ford by disclosing her letter, exactly against her wishes.  They showed that they could care less about her and other women like her who come forward to expose sexual abuse.  These Democras held on to her letter for 45 days and only then released it so that they could further delay the confirmation process in hopes that a November election would return control of the Senate to the Democrats so that they could block EVERY nomination the President would submit.  They have said so!


Then the Democrats hypocritically complained that the FBI only was given a week to investigate the matter after they sat on it in secret for 45 days!


Finally, if that wasn’t enough, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee offered to fly the investigators to California so that Dr. Ford’s testimony would be in private.  Instead, the Democrats and/or Dr. Ford’s attorneys who were recommended by the Democrats, did not convey that message to Dr. Ford and in doing so, forced Dr. Ford to fly to Washington to testify in public before millions of people, exactly what she didn’t want to do.


With friends like the Democrats, who needs enemies?  If all this wasn’t enough, these same Democrats accuse the Republicans of mistreating Dr. Ford and not properly investigating her accusations; such hypocrisy!


And each Democrat has his own “story” such as Senator Blumenthal‘s stating for countless years that he served overseas in harm’s way only to admit that he was stateside.  He is on the Judiciary Committee and was grilling Judge Kavanaugh to tell the truth!  This is total hypocrisy!


And the last salvo, after the Democrats publicly trashed Judge Kavanaugh‘s excelent 30-year reputation by accusing him of being “evil” and being a “gang rapist” the Judge understandably became upset.  The Democrats then accused him of not having the demeanor or temperament of an Assiciate Justice on the US Supreme Court.


Just like SC Senator Graham so eloquently stated, he voted for both liberal justices that were nominated by a Democrat President yet no Democrats except for the lone WV Senator, voted for Judge Kavanaugh.  Of course he is conservative, he was nominated by a conservative President just like the two liberal judges were nominated by a liberal president.  So why didn’t the Democrats vote for this nomination like the Republicans voted for the liberal nominations?  You are suppose to vote based upon their record not on their political party.  That’s what the Republicans did and that is not what the Democrats did.


The Democrats now say that Judge Kavanaugh‘s response accusing the actions of the Democrats showed bias yet these same Democrats forget that the sitting Justice Ginsburg stated before the 2016 election that if Trump won she would move to New Zealand.  Such amazing hypocrisy!


Since the media does not report these facts or anything supportive of this president, it has earned the title of “Fake News” Media, and understandably so!  Why must I post this information?  Why can’t the media do its job and report BOTH sides?

Judge Kavanaugh, what really happened

This is a classical “he says, she says.” They both sounded very convincing.  What was surprising, all of the witnesses that Dr. Ford provided did not support her.  However, I am an optimist and believe what she had to say, even the part of “100% certain that it was Brett Kavanaugh.


Here’s my take.  First, like the President, I don’t drink alcohol or do drugs.  Nor do I identify with those who do.  I don’t like being with those who drink, especially when they are drinking.  I can only conclude that Judge Kavanaugh did what Dr. Ford said he did.  That he doesn’t remember nor any of the other witnesses, all of which were drinking does not surprise me at all.  They are all inebriated.  Of course no one remembers.


But these two factors must be considered:


First, these were kids, not even old enough to vote.  We all did stupid things when we were kids.  That’s what kids do.  When one is intoxiated, one is not always proud of one’s actions, much less, remembers.  Again, I don’t drink and don’t even know enough to understand that behavior.  What is more important, is what has Judge Kavanaugh done as an adult?  During the the last 35 years he has straightened up.  He is by far the greatest advocate that women have in the legal system.  He has given more clerkships to women than anyone has done, EVER.  He is the best thing to have ever happened to women.  In my experience, when the government conducts its background investigations for security purposes,  it only goes back seven years, not 36.


Second, why is a 15-year-old girl going to a private house “party” occupied by 17-year-old “stumbling drunk” boys?  Where are her parents?  And why is a 15-year-old girl having “one beer?”  Only one beer?  Is it 8 ounces?  16?  24?  What did she weigh back then, 100?  What does 24 ounces of beer do to a 100 pound 15-year-old girl?  Was it her first ever?  I can understand not remembering where the house was and other such non traumatic details, but I cannot understand how the number of beers is considered memorable like the sexual assault instead of the other details?  Choosing to go to such a party is like walking down the street in a bad section of town counting a wad of a hundred $100 bills at 2:00 in the morning and expecting nothing bad to happen.  At some point, people have to be held accountable.  It is akin to getting mad at your dog for making a mess on the carpet when you should have let him out.  I have daughter and a son.  I would never allow my daughter at age 15 to go to a “private party” at a private house without adult supervision.  Unsupervised drunken 17-year-old boys are never a good thing for 15-year-old girl virgins.


Now sadly there may be girls who drink and have sex at that age, if that’s the case, they shouldn’t later complain about what they let happen.  Fortunately in this case, she was not raped.  Hopefully she has learned from that experience and doesn’t drink nor let little girls in her charge to do so or to even be in that company.

Republicans, The Real Party of Choice

Choice should always go to the victim, not to the murderer!

Since when are people proud of giving the freedom of choice to the murderer, the assailant, the perpetrator?  In the land of freedom and opportunity and justice for all, the freedom of choice should always go to the victim!


In the meanest and crueless of political schemes, the Democrats take one’s freedom of choice, the will to live, and perverts it by turning it on its head and giving it not to the victim but to the murderer who chooses to kill its victim based on the premise that a person should not be told what to do with one’s body.  And why not?  The government serves to protect the rights and freedoms of others.  If my body wants to shoot another, the government prohibits that action.  Even if my body wants to drive 65mph in a 55mph zone, the government prohibits that action too since it endangers others.  The rights and freedoms of an individual end at the tip of the nose of another.  This is an American mainstay.


Victims should be shown mercy and compassion.  The whole vegan movement overtaking the world is about compassion and love.  See wpn4life.com


The unborn are the most vulnerable.  They cannot speak and are totally dependent upon their mothers.  Unlike a burglar who invades one’s home, the unborn did not choose to invade one’s body.  Democrats give the mother the right to kill the unborn and fight to take the right to kill the burglar.  Really?  This is all backwards!


As with all great deceptions, the Democrats claim to be the party of choice and then portray the murderer as the victim instead on the real victim, the unborn who is killed.  Perhaps the Republicans should rightfully claim the title of choice by stating that they are the Party of Choice since in this country the right thing to do is to give choice to the victim not perpetrator.

Democrats’ Continued Hatred

What’s Happening in Virginia?

After the Governor‘s past racist photos were publicized, he was asked to step down.


After two separate women acused the Lieutenant Governor of sexual assault, there were calls for him to step down.


After the Commonwealth Attorney General admitted to using blackface, there were calls that he too step down.


Then the Democrats realized that the next person in succession to the governorship was a Republican.


It now appears the two apparent racists and alleged rapist can now stay! 

Hollywood Star and President Hater Jussie Smollett

This is just another example of how the left will do anything to trash the Administration and its millions of supporters.


That so many Democrat presidential contenders and political leaders such as the Speaker Pelosi supported his claims without the results of law enforcement’s investigation, goes to the continued Democrat anger and US Representative Maxine Walters’ call to resist the Administration.

Candace Owens: She's the real deal!

No one says it like it is better than Candace Owens.  She is a fresh young attractive African American woman who has the guts to call it the way it is.  She is so right on.  She is exploding all over YouTube.  Check her out.  This is just an example:  https://youtu.be/3PA_Ib86yoc

Leveling the Playing Field

image135

"Trade War"

The United States has the greatest economy in the world; period.  Every other country aspires to have the same, especially China.  How does China and others achieve this?  They do this by encouraging their own industries to grow and be like ours.  How do they do that?  They either deny the sale of American goods to their domestic market or make American products less competitive by raising the price for American goods by adding a tax or tariff.  Almost all countries do this, except us!  Our "friends" the European Union have a Value Added Tax (VAT) that is applied to everything it imports.  When I lived in South America I saw firsthand how imported American goods had a 50 to 100% tariff added.  And China is no different.


This "raping of America" has been going on for decades since our politicians either did not have the economic acumen or the political spine to stand up to these foreign interests.  Well, that has all changed.  President Trump brings his business experience to Washington.  Together with his intent to restore American greatness and his political courage and toughness, he is leveling the trade playing field.


If it were not for President Trump, our aluminum and steel industries, both key in maintaining our defense capability, would have succumbed to foreign dumping.  Dumping is a practice whereby goods are temporarily sold below cost to extinguish a competitor's capability.  Thanks to President Trump placing a 15 and 25% tariff, our aluminum and steel industries were saved and jobs are now being created as these industries prosper.


Now he is doing the same with hundreds of other industries.  Why doesn't the Fake Media cover that?  Because that is what makes the Fake Media fake!  The Fake Media should be interviewing aluminum and steel plant workers and show how layoffs have been turned into to hiring fairs.  Instead, the Fake Media talks about how buying Chinese goods is more expensive.  The solution is to stop buying Chinese goods, like duh!


Tariffs work, just ask China.  It grew from nothing to the second largest economy by limiting American goods, placing high tariffs on American goods, stealing American Intellectual Property (IP), and forcing Americans wishing to do business in China to "partner up" with Chinese companies so that they can learn American knowhow.


Considering the great advances President Trump has achieved in the few years he's been in office, the Democrats will be hard pressed to show why they should be back in the White House in 2020.  They will have to explain to the American voter that (1) the great economic turnaround, (2) the lowest unemployment levels across all groups including minorities and women, (3) death of the death tax, (4) the reduction of income taxes from 39% to 21%, (5) the victory over ISIS, (6) the buildup of our military, (7) the securing of our southern border, (8) the getting of our allies to pay their fair share for their defense such as with NATO and others, (9) the redoing of our trade deals such as NAFTA to USMCA and the termination of our bad deals such as the Iran deal, the Paris deal, and TPP, (10) the opening to North Korea, (11) the removal of excessive government regulations, (12) the reform at the VA allowing veterans to get help elsewhere and the ability to fire non-performers, and (13) the restoration of the Supreme Court, would have all been accomplished with a Democrat politician in the White House even though President Obama and  his VP Joe Biden had 8 years to do any of these and didn't.


Good luck with that!
