“WHEN in the Course of human Events it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth the separate & equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.” —July 4, 1776
This year’s Independence Day celebration in our nation’s capital, “A Salute to America”, features Republican President Donald Trump. He is actively participating in and directing the nature of this annual reflection and joyful holiday. His decision to do so has been slammed by the shrill-sounding, extreme toady-totalitarian Democrat leadership and their main stream media fellow travelers!
The White House announced “save-the-date” plans in February. In May the Jeff Bezos-Amazon-owned Washington Post reported that local Washington, DC council members, among “many” others, were deeply concerned about the proposed plans and activities.
One DC council member, Mary Cheh, a Democrat from Ward 3, accused the President of mimicking a “totalitarian” display of military strength. Other Democrat toadies in Congress accuse the President of getting involved because of his ego which will further divide the nation. Other shrill voices scream, “it shouldn’t be done!” Why? Because over the years the “…the kinks have been worked out.” and, “We don’t want to throw off what already works.”
Saber-rattling! Ego-driven division! Hail to the status quo! Crazy talk by crazed people!
This toady-totalitarian mindset is what Globalist elites, bi-partisan political operators, and Never-Trumpers believe. They use the threat of military might to divide and conquer societies in pursuit of total control. This governing model is precisely how communist China, through its North Korea puppet-regime, has for over a half century influenced foreign policy decisions. We simply must maintain the status quo trade relationship with China and hands-off Asia policy if we are to avoid a “nuclear holocaust”.
President Trump has disrupted globalist banks, Chinese-US trade imbalance, and the Korean peninsula status quo. His historic handshake with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un just prior to stepping onto North Korean soil is a game-changer for WORLD foreign policy!
And it is by no means the only winning chess move Republican Donald Trump has made in his 30 months in office!
The US Embassy in Israel is finally in that nation’s capital. NATO nations are paying much more of their share for military might. Benchmarks for trade with Canada and Mexico have been reset. ISIS-Caliphate land-holdings are gone. Mexico now works forcibly to stem the tide of illegal aliens at THEIR southern border BEFORE they reach OUR southern border.
Here at home the economy is booming, we have money in our pockets, the lowest unemployment in decades, and the highest stock market growth. We have jobs! Celebrate America!
President Donald Trump disrupts and the toady-totalitarians in the world and their main stream media mouthpieces, sputter and shout: “foul play”.
In the meantime, aides from the Administration say: “The president has shown interest in the event (the “A Salute to America” 4th of July celebration) that he often does not exhibit for other administration priorities.”
President Trump’s interest in this year’s Fourth of July celebration can be summed up in two words: America First!
