The G7 Summit: Trump’s Reykjavik Moment

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Someone really needs to relieve John McCain of his I-phone. – The guy whose rejection by the American people gave us Barack Hussein Obama got all upset on Saturday over President Trump’s refusal to bow to our Euro-Canadian betters at the G7 summit, and decided to send the following tweet:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a bipartisan majority of the American people remain pro-globalization, but nevermind, the Senator from the news media has decided it is so.  And so, the guy who could not win the presidency in his own right decides to undermine the trade policy efforts of the guy who was able to win the presidency.

Delete your account, Senator McCain, and while you’re at it, resign the senate seat that you have not manned for a single day this year.  It’s time.

We are witnessing history on a grand scale. – Make no mistake about it, this G7 meeting was the most consequential such meeting ever held, an event every bit as crucial for the future of the free world as Reagan’s walking away from Gorbachev’s siren song at Reykjavik in 1986.  This is true for one simple reason:  The most powerful nation present, by far, now refuses to speak with the forked tongue of globalism.  What’s more, probably the second most powerful nation present – at least economically – is also trending in that direction.

Take a look at this very telling picture:

The first thing you notice is that the only guy seated is completely dominating the room.  He’s the absolute center of everyone’s attention, the singular target of their pleading and scolding.  The second thing you notice is the body language of Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, is exactly the same as President Trump’s.  They’re both taking in the preaching of Macron and Merkel, and not buying a word of what they’re saying.

Why?  Because they both know that these European peacocks are powerless without the backing of the United States of America.  Abe, in fact, knows that is the truth about his own country, and has been the truth since the end of World War II.

Despite all the shrill denunciations of President Trump in the fake American news media today, every bit of real leverage in that room is on America’s side.  The leaders of the other G7 nations know that, they know their economies can’t survive without the American largesse and one-sided trade practices they’ve enjoyed for 70+ years, and that is why they so detest Donald Trump.  He refuses to speak the false language of globalism that Senator McCain wants him to speak and which every previous U.S. president since Reagan has gladly spoken.

Senator McCain and his fellow establishment Republicans, along with every Democrat and fake journalist practicing today would have Mr. Trump simply surrender all that leverage, all that power, in the name of globalism and their fool’s notion of “fairness.”

This President isn’t going to do that because, unlike his four immediate predecessors in office, he understands the crucial nature of leverage and power, and plans to keep using both to advance the interests not of some international “world order”, but of the American people.

Today, he arrives in Singapore for preparations for his June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy from North Korea, Kim Jong Un.  The very same establishment Republicans, Democrats and fake journalists and talking heads who for the past two days have scolded President Trump for having the  nerve to jealously protect American interests and deploy our country’s massive leverage in international negotiations will now shift to fretting that Mr. Trump is now going to somehow completely surrender all that leverage and power in his negotiations with the little Rocket Man.

The hilarious part of all of this is that they’re all too dim and lacking in self-awareness to even understand the massive inherent contradictions and rank hypocrisy in their own arguments.  There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this President – in stark contrast to his predecessors – will do anything other than jealously protect American interests and strongly deploy U.S. leverage while at the same time giving Kim the opportunity to concede what he must concede in order to improve his and his country’s situation.

But hey, this is what these people do – what they have been doing for the last 30 years, in fact.  It’s all they know, and it’s why our country is in inherently unfair trade agreements with pretty much every other major economy on the face of the earth, and it’s why Trump inherited a situation in which North Korea had been able to build its own nuclear capability as the free world stood by and did nothing.

In the magnificent press conference he held as he exited the G7 to head for Singapore on Saturday, the President in fact placed the blame for all of this squarely where it belongs:  On America’s past leaders.  “They can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn’t work anymore,” he said before adding that he believes these other countries are now, despite outward appearances, committed to moving toward fairer trade agreements.  “I don’t blame them, I blame our leaders,” he continued. “In fact, I congratulate leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States.”

Exactly.  Our leaders have been suckers for too long.

“We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he added,  “And that ends.”

John McCain and his fellow globalists hate that, because treating the American taxpayer as a massive piggy bank is what they’ve done for their entire adult lives.  Trump threatens their entire world view, and that’s why they hate him so desperately.

It’s very important – and telling – to note that Ronald Reagan received exactly the same reaction from milquetoast Republicans and the fake American news media after he walked away from Reyjavik.  Less than 3 years after he did that, the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down.

It’s isn’t going to take that long for Trump to get the more favorable trade deals he is seeking from these powerless apparatchiks.  It will probably all be done within a year.  Because at the end of the day, all the leverage and power are in America’s hands, and Trump isn’t going to surrender it.

Just another day of Trump putting America first, and all the globalists hating him for it.

That is all.

President Trump’s Rocket Man Kill Shot Is Great Diplomacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Pyong Yang ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids… – The fake journalists in the fake news media will never give him credit for it, but President Donald Trump has successfully issued one of his famous linguistic kill shots at the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea.  The President started using “Rocket Man” as is nickname for the NORK dictator last week, and according to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, by Monday everyone at the UN General Assembly was using the demeaning moniker as well.
  • “It worked,” she said, when asked about it by a clearly verklempt George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, “I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday, and he actually cited ‘Rocket Man’ back to me… This is a way of getting people to talk about him, but every other international community is now referring to him as ‘Rocket Man.'”
  • The linguistic kill shot is a Donald Trump specialty, one we saw him use time and time again to dispatch opponents during his presidential run.  Who can forget his killing Jeb! Bush and his $200 million war chest in one of the early primary debates by calling him “low energy”?  Carly Fiorina became a “robot,” Ben Carson was “too nice,” Marco Rubio was “sweaty” and “Little Marco,” Ted Cruz was “Lyin’ Ted.”  Every time a major challenger arose, the verbal kill shot having something to do with their physical characteristics or character came, the voters internalized it and the challenger fell to the wayside.
  • In the general election, Hillary Clinton first became “Crooked Hillary,” something most Americans already knew about her but had never heard said by one of her opponents, and then Trump began questioning her “stamina”.  That latter kill shot came just before Ms. Clinton was filmed collapsing while trying to get into her van following a 9/11 ceremony in New York City, and voters understood then what Trump meant.
  • The Kill Shot was crucial in the campaign, and it is also important at the UN.  It is much easier for despots who dominate third world countries to continue to lend support to a nutjob like Kim Jong Un when everyone keeps referring to him in formal diplomatic terms under the pretense that he is a legitimate “leader”.  But it becomes much harder when everyone walking the halls at the UN headquarters is laughingly talking about and ridiculing the Rocket Man.
  • Again, no one on the political left or in the fake news media will ever give him credit for it, but the linguistic kill shot is a big part of the President’s genius, and a big factor why he is where he is today.  We can anticipate much more usage of this tool in next year’s midterm elections, and if the GOP leaders in congress don’t get something big done on Obamacare or taxes, some of those kill shots will be directed at them, and deservedly so.
  • If you watch “The View”, you are living a sad and depressing life, part 7,352 – Naturally, the ‘ladies’ on “The View” had the most idiotic take possible on the “Rocket Man” kill shot, with both Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar claiming the President was making a phallic reference in using it.  There are so many mean things I could say about this coming from these particular ladies, but I am going to exercise a little self-restraint for once.
  • Watch out!  George is gonna get angry! – If you want a bunch of good laughs this morning, go take a look at the clips of MSNBC fake host Lawrence O’Donnell going absolutely berserk at his staff during commercial breaks while taping the August 29 episode of his fake talk show.  We’ve always known that O’Donnell was a raving lunatic, and these outtakes prove it beyond all doubt.  Warning:  lots and lots of profanity involved.
  • The Apocalypse is always just around the corner… – The Sun reports that “A mass extinction which wipes out humanity will be underway by the year 2100, scientists have claimed.”  Because, you know, science or something.

Just another day in linguistic kill shot America.

That is all.

Trump Delivers A Speech Ordinary Americans Have Waited 30 Years To Hear

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • In response to President Donald Trump’s (I never get tired of typing that) soaring speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Venezuelan Envoy Jorge Arreaza said “For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or President Trump in 2017.”  Well, yes, that is exactly why Mr. Trump is President of the United States today.
  • Mr. Arreaza, of course, thought his statement was an insult to the current U.S. President, as did every fake reporter in the fake news media, many of whom were no doubt getting major cases of the vapors as they listened to the President’s speech.  CNN’s Jim Acosta publicly wet his diapers over the decision by President Trump to refer to North Korea’s dictator as “Rocket Man.”  ABC’s Terry Moran said the President’s statement that the U.S. may find it necessary to “destroy” North Korea borders on a war crime, apparently unaware that his hero Barack Obama had made the very same threat towards the Norks while he was occupying the White House.
  • Can it be a coincidence that America’s community of fake journalists, its population of liberal/progressive/socialist/communist voters and politicians, the snakes and skunks who infest the Deep State in Washington, and leaders of despotic regimes around the globe all had exactly the same reaction to a speech in which the President of the United States emphasized he plans to put the interests of the American people above the interests of the globalist community?  Well, no, it’s no coincidence at all, is it?
  • Meanwhile, the normal people of America – the people who inhabit the 95% of the country outside of New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and San Francisco – have been waiting 30 years to hear an American President deliver exactly this speech, a speech before the international globalist community that firmly places their safety, their security, their families, and their prosperity as the President’s number one priority in his job.  These Americans have spent the last three decades literally longing to hear such a speech from George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Hussein Obama, and have come away uniformly disappointed at every turn.  Normal Americans were especially hopeful for a President who puts their interests first after the unending, eight year-long apology tour by Barack Hussein.
  • So Mr. Arreaza was right, if unwittingly so, to say that at times it was hard to know if we were hearing a speech from Donald Trump or Ronald Reagan, because the last time Americans heard such a speech escape the lips from their national leader, it came from Mr. Reagan.
  • The last time Americans heard such a speech from one of their Presidents, it was June 12, 1987.  Ronald Reagan, speaking to an audience of international leaders from a podium placed in front of the Berlin Wall, said “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
  • Two years later, that wall came down, and the Soviet Union collapsed.  These were lines that Mr. Reagan’s squeamish advisors had repeatedly removed from his speech for fear of offending the “international community”, only to have the President himself re-insert the passage to their great frustration.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • No doubt we will find out in coming days that several lines spoken by President Trump in Tuesday’s speech were placed there against the will of his own squeamish advisors, some of whom are globalists who live in fear of offending the Maduros and Merkels of the world.  It’s a safe bet that much of the President’s strong rhetoric aimed at the despotic dictators of North Korea, Iran and Venezuela were spoken over and above the disapproval of H.R. McMaster and John Kelly.  It is similarly safe to bet that much of the President’s stern language scolding of the U.N. itself over its wastefulness and ineffectiveness were delivered over the objections of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • So Mr. Arreaza had it right:  For 40 minutes on Tuesday, we had an American President delivering a speech to the international community that could easily have been delivered by the Great Ronald Wilson Reagan.  The time and place were different, the accent and cadence of the two speakers are different, but the courage, leadership and rhetoric on display were completely indistinguishable.
  • In the end, this key early passage set the tone for President Trump’s entire speech:  “In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people where it belongs.”
  • Those are two sentences Ronald Reagan would have been happy to deliver as well, and those two sentences explain why this is a speech normal Americans loved, and the globalists detest.  God Bless Donald Trump for having the courage necessary to be mistaken for Ronald Reagan.  It’s been 30 long years since anyone had that to say about an American president.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
