Trump Calls Off Cold War II
PAT BUCHANAN • JULY 17, 2018 • 900 WORDS • 9 COMMENTS 

*** begin quote ***

Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have “never been worse.”

He then added pointedly, that just changed “about four hours ago.”

It certainly did. With his remarks in Helsinki and at the NATO summit in Brussels, Trump has signaled a historic shift in U.S. foreign policy that may determine the future of this nation and the fate of his presidency.

He has rejected the fundamental premises of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and blamed our wretched relations with Russia, not on Vladimir Putin, but squarely on the U.S. establishment.

In a tweet prior to the meeting, Trump indicted the elites of both parties: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”

Trump thereby repudiated the records and agendas of the neocons and their liberal interventionist allies, as well as the archipelago of War Party think tanks beavering away inside the Beltway.

Looking back over the week, from Brussels to Britain to Helsinki, Trump’s message has been clear, consistent and startling.

NATO is obsolete. European allies have freeloaded off U.S. defense while rolling up huge trade surpluses at our expense. Those days are over. Europeans are going to stop stealing our markets and start paying for their own defense.

And there will be no Cold War II.

*** end quote ***

Certainly seems like a good meeting for us anti-war advocates.  

I personally hope that DJT45 closes down NATO and lets all its politicians and bureaucrats more onto more productive work.

It’s a good time to change the foreign policy of “world’s policeman” and institute a Swiss style MYOB.

NJ Veteran Claims Police Tried To Take His Guns Without Due Process

Monday, July 16, 2018

New Jersey now has a law on the books that allows the government to confiscate guns from anyone considered a threat without anything approaching due process. There’s a slightly more complicated process, but in its essence, that’s pretty much exactly what is at play.

Man Shoots Burglar, Family Predictably Cries Foul

Sunday, July 15, 2018

What is it about family that makes it so you can be absolutely convinced that despite them engaging in a criminal act, they’re still somehow angels? I ask because it seems that no matter what the circumstances, when someone gets shot, the family will invariably step up and pontificate on just why that person shouldn’t have been killed.

PEACE: NATO — Let’s Get Out!

Trump Hammers NATO. Good! Let’s Get Out!Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams Posted on July 11, 2018President Trump is making waves as he arrives in Europe for the NATO summit. Chiding Germany for benefitting from US protection against Russia while buying billions of dollars worth of Russian oil, he has captured the duplicity of European leaders. But the solution is not to browbeat them to spend more on their militaries. It’s to shut down NATO once and for all.

What a great way to return to the “peace path”.  NATO serves NO purpose other than provide Gooferment “jobs” for all involved.

We can’t afford it!

The digital dollar can serve as a powerful tool for enforcing “good” behavior. That is one more reason to lower your dependence on it.
