The Arab Islamic American summit, convened by king Salman and President Trump was a success. This new initiative to eradicate Terrorism is truly a Partnership of Civilizations. President Trump expedition to visit the three largest monotheistic religions on his maiden international trip is an unparalleled concoction of diplomacy. To plan and execute a trip that includes a visit to the epicenter of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity is truly deep thinking. It proves that successful Businessmen make good Presidents. There is only one other President who could contrive such a successful trip and that would be Potus.
Career politicians in Washington, would not have a prayers chance of conceiving such a trip let alone executing. Politicians who believe their umbilical cord is tied to the Presidency, not to mention the puppets who believe certain Democrats have an inherent right to lead them, could not accomplish this feat even in their dreams. The previous administration lacked the vision required to concoct an Arab Islamic American summit let alone achieving the results.
Consistent with lack of vision, I do not recall anyone electing a Politician to go to Egypt and apologize for America. It will take a miracle for the Democrats to admit they were hoodwinked for eight years. Simultaneously, the pulpits in the hood will probably not recover from their failed promotion regarding the candidate of choice in the Presidential election of 2008. I believe that the Pastors in the local communities were as anxious as the leaders of the International community, to begin the Trump Era.
Members of the swamp in Washington have yet to recognize that lecturing foreign Governments will not work. Imposing your way of life on Countries with distinct cultures is a foolish approach. No one is buying stop selling. That is why Potus is selling weapons and Technology. Fact is our founding Fathers did not create a Democracy. They created a Republic. Remember, “I pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands, one Nation under God with Liberty and justice for all”.
The founding Fathers wanted Liberty and Freedom for all. You can do Liberty and Freedom without being a Democracy. If the Democrats and Mainstream media understood what Democracy meant, they would not be trying to engineer a coup d’état. Democracy means of the People, For the People, and By the People. The People voted, stop trying to undo the Presidential Election of 2016. Members of the previous Administration have no more right to lead than Potus. From my perspective, Potus has accomplished more in four months than the previous Administration did in eight years or could ever do in eighty years. The previous Administration left Country in a mess domestically and internationally that even Potus with a construction background is going to be hard press to clean up. In the interim, Country will very likely be engaged in three wars.
To the Democrats and Mainstream media do you know the definition of a fool? It is doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results. Emasculating Male leaders of State and strumming the faces of Female leaders by lecturing and trying to impose Democracy, will accomplish nothing. Potus approach is the right way forward. You convince Leaders by emphasizing common goals and objectives. You suggest and recommend but let them make the decision to change their social practices and conduct. You have to let Leaders believe that change is their decision. You employ reverse psychology to bring about desired goals. It is the Art of partnership.
The presumed common goals of the Leaders of all countries are Peace, Security, and Prosperity for all citizens. Potus and the Secretary of State are emphasizing and nurturing these common goals. Eventually some will accept the values of Country, others will not. It is better to be pragmatic and deal with the world as it is. Idiotic members of congress who maintain dogmatic positions, will fail in their efforts to change foreign leaders and jeopardize the success of Country.
Changing hearts and minds of leaders will be an incidental occurrence, at the right time, and only when they are ready. When you push or continuously harp, you lose audience. When you push too hard, you will be viewed as a bully. When you exhibit the characteristic of a bully, you will get one of two reactions, confrontation or flee. Neither result is of benefit to Country. Country needs positive and not negative results. Country needs to engage the rest of the world in win win win exercises. For example: Saudi Arabia gets weapons, America gets money, and Americans and Saudis get Jobs.
Idiotic members of congress and mainstream media need to understand that Country fighting with Saudi Arabia about Human Rights is a coming attraction. Maybe it will be at a theater near you and maybe it will not. The only movie my fellow Americans want to see is “Jobs”. That movie has a significant take away. On the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood, that is a battle for another day. Simultaneously, moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be a better decision in the proverbial tomorrow.
My take away from the stop in Saudi Arabia is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is in danger from Iran. Consequently, it is in their interest to engage Country. In addition, unifying into the entity Gulf Cooperation Countries, Saudi Arabia increases its ability to defend against any Iranian attack short of nuclear.
My take away from the stop in Israel is Prime Minister Netanyahu, is probably feeling the pressure to be the leader that returns the Capital of Israel to Jerusalem. Equally important, he would like to make peace with the Palestinians but he is not convinced it is possible. I am inclined to share his pessimism.
The stop at the Vatican will ultimately be inconsequential. The visit was symbolic and ceremonial. The Pope is passive consistent with the protocol of Catholicism and Potus is an active and determined President. Potus see that action is required to eradicate extremists. The Pope is naïve and believes the Bible and prayers alone will prevail. The Pope needs to remember that God conducted some serious battles against evil. If the philosophy of the Pope is considered a strategy to confront terror, more people will suffer and some will die. The Pope’s Bible and Olive branch approach will not work.
The Pope’s Bible and Olive branch approach to evil was the reason why the Carter Presidency was a failure. The Carter Presidency left us Iran as a legacy. There is a glaring resemblance of the Carter Presidency to that of the previous administration. Both left us Iran as a dangerous legacy. The Democratic Party and their Administrations since 1976 are responsible for all the failed and lingering International policies. Failed International policies including but not limited to NAFTA, North Korea, Iran, Libya, and a list of others are responsible for the woes of Country.
Democrats criticize Potus for not having an International policy or strategy but the sad truth is they have none. Historically the Democrats have been void of sound policies domestically and internationally, unless you have the inclination to define the “Libya Debacle” as a sound International policy. Domestically, NAFTA is the basis for loss of Manufacturing Jobs and economic woes.
The Democratic Party is in a funk that having them as part of the Government is threatening the security of Country. The minority leader of the Senate is engaging in behavior consistent with Coup D’état. There are people in Washington who consider themselves members of a Political class. Therefore, Potus is not qualified to be President. Those who echo that sentiment are simply legends in their own mind. Their sole interest is themselves in disguise that they represent the people. The people voted for Trump but they the Political class disagrees with the choice. As a result, they are willing to be obstructionists for the next four years and suppress the will of the people.
I would rather see the Businessman who became a Politician try to move Country forward than have a career politician continue the stagnation and the decline created by the previous administration. Democratic members of the house of Representatives especially the minority leader and her cronies cannot remember which country is associated with specific issues. That indicates that such ignoramuses do not have a clue where the respective countries are on the Globe. If you do not know where a country is then it is unlikely that you can concoct a plan to address an issue. Said Democrats are likely to tell you that Africa or the Middle East is a country. Such obfuscation is the best that the “Progressives” can offer.
Potus has substantive plans for country. He is offering a vision and not dreams that will not come through. A vision of what the world should be. A world filled with ideas and the sharing thereof between people and nations. Out of many nations, one world. A world filled with Peace, Security, and Prosperity.
