The message from President Trump at the G7 this weekend was short, crisp, direct, and way past due:
“We don’t need you, you need us. Fix this mess you’ve made or suck on it.”
(or words to that effect)
In reality, the old powers and their establishment stooges discovered that when Americans vote for change we mean it, and not that feel good Hollywood soy boy mom jeans wearing loser Obama type version of an alternative reality.
Americans are tired.
We are tired of fighting and dying on foreign soils while wealthy nations like Germany send scant remnants of what was once a powerful and feared military (post World War II that is) and won’t even pay for their own defense responsibilities within the NATO treaty.
We are tired of the lack of respect not just for our nation abroad, but the disrespect being directed towards our citizens as we give their nations hundreds of millions of our taxpayer dollars, in some cases billions, yet we are expected to do this while they attack our nation and its citizens.
We are tired of getting involved in every bankster conceived conflict because mineral rights, or WMD’s, or because we need to test new weapons per the defense-industrial complex.
And we are sick of every person in the world claiming a “right” to just walk into our nation and collect welfare on demand.
Thus I give you the election results of 2016 and one President Donald J. Trump.
Fast forward to an article to day by Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic titled: A Senior White House Official Defines the Trump Doctrine: ‘We’re America, Bitch’.
I’m good with the sentiment, but one key excerpt sums it all up:
The best distillation of the Trump Doctrine I heard, though, came from a senior White House official with direct access to the president and his thinking. I was talking to this person several weeks ago, and I said, by way of introduction, that I thought it might perhaps be too early to discern a definitive Trump Doctrine.
“No,” the official said. “There’s definitely a Trump Doctrine.”
“What is it?” I asked. Here is the answer I received:
“The Trump Doctrine is ‘We’re America, Bitch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine.”
I like that but not for the reasons one may think. President Trump will not be one of those spineless wonders who whimpered from crisis to crisis with 100 Phd’s who never served in the military or government giving him advice like Obama did.
The days of wasting our soldiers lives and spending the taxpayers hard earned dollars to protect other nation’s interests which do not support ours is over. No more wars to defend nations like Germany or France from a non-existent Russian threat; especially since 50% of 18 year olds could not find Germany, Berlin, or Moscow on a world map without a cell phone. No more invasions of toilets like Yemen or Niger to help multi-national corporations protect their mineral rights.
As President Trump heads into tonight’s meeting with Kim Jong-Un think about this ‘Trump Doctrine’ as negotiations begin. Kim might be the Supreme Leader but he is young and inexperience facing a master who will negotiate a deal not only good for both South and North Korea, but perhaps great for America as one of the longest wars in our history may finally draw to a close.
