US Foreign Policy
Please, allow me to tell you a real story I personally lived through. Once upon a time, there were two republics. Both had constitutions, laws, civil rights, a government, a congress, and a court system of law. The people could assemble, associate, speak, and write with freedom.
But as the people became unsatisfied with their governments, they chose to support new officials and were fooled by fake images of religion and a better life before reality began to set in.
Is Donald Trump beginning an angry month with a crazy news conference and his tweet storm which reached another low with increased attacks on the press?
POTUS mental fitness becomes a conversation for conservatives, as an impeachment inquiry from liberal Democrats and challenges from political combatants are getting through to millions of swing voters who are sick and tired of Trump.
The crazier he gets, the more the pressure will rise on US Congress and the American public to do something serious about it.
"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 and 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." Declaration of Independence
Welcome to the mourning after. Do you smell the Covfefe brewing on Capitol Hill? The US Department of Justice offers no timetable on the release of the Mueller report to Congress.
Can you imagine if the Starr Report had been provided only to President Bill Clinton's Attorney General, Janet Reno, who claimed she read it read it in two days and published a 4-page cliff notes concluding that President Clinton committed no crimes?
POTUS War on Latinos and a Caravan is NOT the most pressing issue in this election. The Democrats do not support open borders and the reason why ICE gets a bad rap is about those kids who have still been detained hundreds of days after the court ordered them released. This is also a war on many woman and children.
On this 20th anniversary of the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act expanding US foreign policy capabilities promoting and defending religious freedoms at home and all over the world, lets put our money. Where our mouths are.
IRFA builds on our founding fathers’ firm conviction that the freedom of individuals to believe as they see fit is a God-given right that is central to the success of a nation.
Nearly 200 years ago, in 1823, President James Monroe's doctrine prevented imperial powers foreign to our Western Hemisphere from acquiring territories anywhere in The Americas or seeking undue influence. This was the cornerstone of #USA grand strategy.
American foreign influence once referred to how we behaved towards other nations. Now we're told there are countries turning the tables on us and global leaders like Russia and now China dares interfere in our internal affairs.
If the GOP elected a president who promised to take on DC, why does he keep poking members of his own administration, his Republican Congressional colleagues, and US allies? If Mr. Poke insists that he misspoke, then he misspoke once again.
Plenty of presidents have created chaos and commotion during their travels abroad, but none as much as POTUS has. Also, wait as Putin most likely recorded their conversation and will probably try to use it against him one day.
Is the USA for sale, or has it already been sold right from under our eyes? As the resistance to POTUS continues to grow in communities across America, hundreds of thousands of people have protested Trump’s cutting the rights of many and more wil most likely continue demonstrating in cities across the nation.
Moreover, the resistance has reached the halls of Congress after Trump uses his jaw Mussolini-style, claiming that a new vision will govern our land called America first, but is it really more like Trump first?
In the past 3 months, @POTUS has reportedly managed to antagonize or piss off many international leaders and it appears that his shoot from the hip hits just keeps on coming. During 90 days of nuclear tough talk, Trump has upset friend and foe.
Are the leaders and the people of the following nations scratching their collective heads and wondering how it came to this?
