Rob McCoy–Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness ‘protected by foreign policy’



By Michael Hernandez

Newbury Park—“Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness (is) protected by foreign policy,” said Councilman Rob McCoy.  “We need to protect our citizens from the savagery of terrorism.”

George Washington wrote 340 words to a Hebrew congregation said McCoy, celebrating its dedication on Aug. 17, 1790 in Newport, Rhode Island, that “their new nation would be different” and that they “who live under its protection” should demand themselves to be “good citizens.”  John Adams would later state:  “Only moral people can govern a republic.”

Today’s America needs “only good citizens who understand the civil compact” and who are “subject to authority of the U.S. Constitution” and by consent of “we the people” because “we have been endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights,” said McCoy.  “In U.S. history, over 200 wars (or conflicts) have been fought; but never against a democratic or constitutional republic.”

McCoy shared excerpts of Winston Churchill’s speech before the English House of Commons speaking about the Battle of France being “over” and the Battle of Britain about to “begin” and “upon this battle depends the survival of Christian Western Civilization…If we fail, the whole world including the United States, sinks in the abyss of a new Dark Age made more perverted by science” with “paganism and barbarism” attacking Christianity.

According to McCoy, foreign policy should be based on “principles and policies” established by the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution—7 Articles and 27 Amendments—that protect the rights of citizens especially from terrorism which he defined as “undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions”  and is “a form of warfare” which rules “not by reason but by fear.”

McCoy gave credit to congregational member David Lane, for his role in generating the evangelical vote (85 percent) that went to Donald J. Trump in the 2016 presidential election—especially in swing states.

McCoy said, “Good  citizens in our community treat each other with civility, with kindness” and work to “gain understanding of a constitutional republic.”
