We, the people, have recently won two great battles for independence against the rising tide of tyranny. The American People have won a battle against the UniParty in Washington, and the people of England have won at least the initial Brexit battle against the all subsuming powers of the European Union.
Two great battles, but the war is not yet won. History teaches us that when the state media begins to protect its monopoly by dehumanizing a group of people and fostering hate against them, then very bad things tend to result. The Deplorables of today, become both the haunted and the hunted of tomorrow.
Since the Battle of Marathon some 2500 years ago, freedom has been won by valiant determination, and just as frequently lost by neglect, distraction, and laziness. We have allowed two, maybe three generations to be raised in ignorance of the cost of freedom. Worst still, we have allowed freedom itself to be redefined as licentiousness, gluttony and a “live for the moment” attitude of resignation to the shared-brain dictates of our new rulers.
Donald J. Trump, now President, has led the battle for freedom in America, and he now stands on the deck of this great ship of state. But it is a ship sailing in troubled waters and is confronted by at least seven great storms ahead.
First, America’s national debt problem will collapse all of our futures if it is not dealt with. We already owe $20,000,000,000,000 or approximately $58,000 for every man, woman and child alive in America today. That represents almost a quarter of a million dollars of debt for every family of four in America. These are real dollars and real debts. Our way of life cannot be sustained if the rest of the world begins to believe that we either will not, or cannot repay our debts. It will become increasingly difficult to maintain that debt as portions of it come due for repayment. That will result in massive inflation, if not hyper-inflation, that will destroy wealth and grind America to a halt. President Trump is a businessman who understands the need to manage debt, but the first act of Washington insiders, even before Donald Trump was sworn in as President, was to increase the debt limit by a massive $10,000,000,000,000. An additional $29,000 for every man, woman and child in America, bringing the total to $87,000 each. That decision is unsustainable and must be reversed.
Second, corporate globalism is weakening America by supporting international trade pacts which blur the borders between nations, for the purposes of trade and immigration. Both political parties have colluded with each other towards this goal. Globalist trade agreements benefit the corporate elite, but injure American workers. They reduce the number of manufacturing jobs and increase the supply of lower paid immigrants to fill them. Such trade pacts have had disastrous consequences on America’s trade deficits, and are a significant component of our unsustainable debt problem. President Trump values free trade, but wants FAIR free trade. Trade which will allow American workers to use their skills to compete successfully on a level playing field.
President Trump believes that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which both political parties supported, has been a disaster for many Americans, and that the now stalled Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is NAFTA on steroids, even before China gets secretly allowed into the agreement. President Trump is also opposed to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), which is designed to expand NAFTA to facilitate the free movement of goods and workers between Canada, America and Mexico. The security portion of that agreement aims to provide a single security boundary around Canada, America and Mexico collectively. The Prosperity portion of the plan is currently focused on the free flow of energy and capital between the three counties, but the ultimate goal is a North American Union similar to the European Union, with all of the loss of American freedoms which that goal entails. In contrast, President Trump has indicated that he would place America’s interests first in all negotiations with other countries.
Third, America has a security problem, with a weak southern border which allows migrants, drugs and terrorists into the country unchecked. President Trump wants to solve that problem by building a secure border fence which allows legal immigrants in, after appropriate checking, but keeps illegal immigrants, drugs and terrorists out. Who would have raised this issue if President Trump had not been willing to step up to this third rail of political correctness? No other presidential candidate was committed to building such a fence and offering America real security, as opposed to an imaginary and very porous counterfeit.
Fourth, Hillary Clinton and President Obama have left America with such a mess in the Middle East, that it will take a great negotiator to come even close to resolving that issue. President Trump is a consensus builder that will unite the world’s forces against the ISIS menace, and do it in a way that does not saddle Americans with a giant share of the costs, in terms of both lives and dollars. The unfortunate reality is that there are only two political systems that historically have demonstrated a capacity to accomplish their long-term goals. One is freedom, but the other is tyranny. President Trump stands for freedom, and he has the strength of conviction and persuasion to focus the free world’s resources against Islamic extremism and other forms of tyranny.
Fifth, Russian militarism is on the rise. President Putin is systematically gearing up the Russian war machine, and also provoking his people to see America as the source of their problems. That combination is reminiscent of Nazi Germany, and is very dangerous. We cannot ignore Russian militarism, but we would rather not confront it directly. We need a strong, accomplished negotiator like President Trump. He has the best chance of convincing Putin that Russia has more to gain from peace than territorial expansion.
Sixth, in 1956, the Chinese communists developed a 100 year plan to overtake world leadership. Their recent military actions in the South China Sea, and their development of hypersonic nuclear weapons, that we have no viable defense against, clearly indicate that they are well ahead of schedule. That immediate situation is probably already beyond repair, but a strong consensus builder like President Trump may still be able to keep the lid on China’s long-term expansionist policies and the recklessness of their proxy in North Korea.
The seventh major problem facing us is the loss of the basic freedoms that were established by the American Constitution. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, Freedom of religion, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, freedom from unlimited government control, and the freedom to protect ourselves against criminals, all depend upon the American Constitution, which is continually being watered down and eroded. If the next Supreme Court Justice is not chosen wisely, then all of the above freedoms will be irreparably diminished if not eradicated.
Like him or not, President Trump now has the task of steering either through or around all of the seven great storms ahead. Fortunately, he communicates well with Americans, young and old, who are tired of Washington politics. He is also a builder who understands what America needs to do to become great again.
The reality is that there are still great battles ahead in the struggle for freedom. America still need’s you to be attentive to the needs of the hour, and to strap on your breastplate of truth and awareness of reality. The videos above are intended to assist you in that task.
God bless you, and God bless America.
