My latest work is using Science and logic to Prove the Existence of God


Over the past 30 some years I have been studying about the various theories regarding how we exist. By that I mean that we can think and have Free Will; and that allows us to make choices in what we do — we can do what is right or we can do things that are wrong, its our choice. In my studies I found that science doesn’t allow for that to happen its called the Hard Problem!

The attached book contains an analysis of this problem this book is the result of decades of research and thinking. The only conclusion I could come up with is there has to be a God as its the only way we can actually exist. The following image is on the cover of the book and it represents creation. The picture was constructed with God shown as creating the universe, using the art concept discovered by CG Jung and described in his book, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. Jung found that all cultures had common believes and those beliefs were represented in art. Many of the art works he showed in his book are similar to the one I created here, and they are called mandalas.

The Next US Civil War


Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Sep 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty,

You have been right about everything! This nightmare has unfolded exactly as you said it would globally not just here in the USA and nobody listened. I have attended many WEC’s and I’m so grateful for you and your staff. This feels hopeless. Is it time to leave the US? Where to? I’m not taking this shot and like many others. My family and I stand to lose everything because of these policies.

Be well and I’m looking forward to the WEC in November!

Cheers!

REPLY: That is a very important question and it will be at the top of the list of topics we will address in addition to 2022, 2024, and 2032. We are facing a GLOBAL separatist movement that is not confined to just the United States. Everywhere from North America to Europe and Asia there are signs of tremendous stress that are unfolding along historic lines of separation.

I have been shaking every tree to try to ascertain what is in this vaccine that has governments so damn insistent that everyone must be vaccinated for a disease that has a mortality rate of less than 1% and it is typically the same people who die of the flu/pneumonia. I do not believe that those in government think that everyone who takes the vaccine will die in 2 to 3 years. They seem to believe that this is a way to control people.

Nonetheless, the real problem here is that these vaccines may not be all the same. There are people who have had a magnet stick to the place they got the shot and others it does not. Why? Some believe that there are differences in the vaccines and Gates is behind that to thin the herd. Nothing can be confirmed. It is all wild rumor. What I do not like is that the politicians have been bought all because they have totally screwed up the world financial system by borrowing endlessly with no intention of paying anything back.

All I can attest to is the stupidity of those in power and they have refused to reform or relinquish the slightest amount of power. The solution is always more power and this COVID scam appears to be more of a power grab and they intend to use the vaccine as the excuse to create internment camps to imprison those who resist their authority.

The fence is going back up out of fear of protests. Yes, Pelosi’s Fortress is becoming more permanent showing they know what they are doing is wrong. We can see what is unfolding in the land of the free that is no longer free. The troops will have loaded weapons that were banned after the Kent State killing of students. The rumor is that the troops are to be screened and if they voted for Trump they will be dismissed. They do not want any “Republicans” to have a gun inside the fence. That says it all.

I can also attest that we are looked down upon as animals. They have no intention of listening to us and as for constitutional rights, they do not consider that we have any. Now, if you are charged with any sort of a crime, they are also stripping you of your right to vote. Welcome to waking up for you are the Great Unwashed. As they say:

Power corrupts, but ultimate power corrupts Everything!

Irony, Biden Administration Being Called Out By Health Officials for Political Booster Shots That Do Not Follow Science


Posted originally on the conservative tree house September 4, 2021 | Sundance | 222 Comments

The politics of COVID-19 are becoming too obvious.  Joe Biden’s approval ratings are collapsing.  In response, the White House messaging team, led by Chief of Staff Ron Klain, has dropped back to the value of COVID fear and started promoting the need for multiple booster shots; or else.   There appears to be a pattern, as the same political messaging group behind California Governor Gavin Newsom are promoting the same approach. However, they have a problem.

The Democrat reliance on the COVID fear as a political tool is wearing off; perhaps the panic has an expiration date, or perhaps people are starting to realize the politics of manipulated COVID messaging is just that, ‘political messaging’.  The vaccine results from Israel undercut the U.S. vaccine narrative; simultaneously, the open-society results from Sweden show how society can function without chasing endless mitigation efforts (ie masks) that provide no benefit.

Many Americans are absorbing all the information available on a daily basis and appear to be seeing-through the ever-evolving, ever-changing, ever-contradictory, non-scientific COVID dictates. Yes, there is a virus; but also, these government directed solutions are delivering worse outcomes than the virus itself.

As a result of growing public cynicism, health officials inside the administration are attempting to retain what little remains of their own crumbling credibility.   Health officials inside the administration are now pushing back against the White House direction to promote never-ending and untested vaccine ‘booster shots’ as tools for fear and control over people.

WASHINGTON — Top federal health officials have told the White House to scale back a plan to offer coronavirus booster shots to the general public this month, saying that regulators need more time to collect and review all the necessary data, according to people familiar with the discussion.

Dr. Janet Woodcock, the acting commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, who heads the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned the White House on Thursday that their agencies may be able to determine in the coming weeks whether to recommend boosters only for recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine — and possibly just some of them to start.

The two health leaders made their argument in a meeting with Jeffrey D. Zients, the White House pandemic coordinator. Several people who heard about the session said it was unclear how Mr. Zients responded.  (read more)

The White House was pushing eight month boosters, then it shifted to six month boosters, and now the entire booster premise is on hold.  Apparently, Woodcock and Walensky noted the messaging just looked a little goofy when contrast against the “follow the science” talking points.

Joe Biden’s Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, resembles the passenger:

Missed Expectations, ADP Private Payrolls Rise 374k Far Below Economist Prior Estimates


Posted originally on the conservative tree house September 1, 2021 | Sundance | 151 Comments

The Bureau of Labor Statistics report on August jobs is anticipated Friday. However, the numbers from the private sector ADP payroll review [Data Here] were released today, and the results are far below what was predicted.

According to the ADP payroll review, businesses hired a total of 374,000 workers, compared to the expectation of 600,000+ from the financial media.  The vast majority of jobs gained was in the ‘Service and Hospitality’ sector that added 201,000 jobs.

The total services sector added 329,000 jobs, while the goods-producing sector only gained 45,000 jobs. This result is reflective of an overall drop in consumer spending which has continually been identified in sales data from the past several months.

Consumers are being hit with massive inflation on food, fuel, energy and housing costs. As a result, they have pulled back from spending on durable goods, luxury products and other items now considered ‘non-essential.’

The service and hospitality sector shows job growth from new hires and returning workers as people start to travel, dine in restaurants and engage in other vacation activity.  Simultaneously, those same consumers are spending less on retail purchases. This pattern has been very consistent throughout the summer.

(MSM) – […] Recent statements out of the central bank indicate that it likely will slow the pace of its monthly purchases of bonds so long as job growth continues at pace. Officials have been largely optimistic about the employment picture, though they note that about 6 million fewer workers are holding jobs now than before the pandemic. (more)

Joe Biden Releases Official Statement Gleefully Supporting Forced Vaccinations of U.S. Military


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on August 9, 2021 | Sundance | 647 Comments

The White House will not require their federal staff to be vaccinated (LINK).  The CDC, NIH and FDA will not require their agency staff or federal employees to be vaccinated.  However, the White House, NIH, FDA and the CDC support the forced vaccination of U.S. military service-members.

Anyone else find that odd?

The Obama people are pretty smart on this.  They can use the avatar of Joe Biden to push much further than they would if Obama was on point and visible.  Essentially they can use Biden to push just about anything, at any extreme, because he is entirely disposable.   Joe Biden is both jetsam and flotsam at the same time.

A very unique and devious dynamic.

Papers Please, Today French Police Begin Demanding COVID Vaccination ID For Citizens Outside


Posted Originally on the conservative tree house on August 9, 2021 | Sundance | 204 Comments

Today was the deadline for citizens of France to carry their vaccination ID if they want to participate in society.   Citizens of France are required to carry their identification if they want to eat a restaurants, go to shopping malls or attend venues where crowds would gather.  [MSM CITATION HERE] Videos of the French police conducting random checks and checkpoints are surfacing.  WATCH:

As we noted last month when this was announced, France is the beta-test.  The U.S. State Department and French government have a long history of cooperation and testing for political and social change.

This will be coming soon to New York City (previously announced), and from there to towns and local communities across the United States.

.

JULY 13, 2021 – “I have no doubt, none whatsoever, that French officials and U.S. officials are closely discussing this approach in closed-door meetings.  France is being used as a test ground in a similar way the Rivkin Project was deployed.

Despite the wide social differences, at their core French nationalists are close in ideological alignment to Americans.  France is one of the few states left in Western Europe with the remnant of a national consciousness.” (link)

Rand Paul Says Enough is Enough, We The People Withdraw Our Consent


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on August 9, 2021 | Sundance | 514 Comments

..”If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.”..  ~Sam Adams

The overwhelming majority of dictates around COVID-19 mitigation are not laws, they are rules created by un-elected bureaucrats.  There was no debate; no input from representative government; and no option for the public to weigh-in on the decisions.  All unilateral rules are arbitrary, and despite many proclamations to the contrary, they rely upon voluntary compliance. As soon as citizens no longer voluntarily comply, the term of the rules has expired. Liberty must remain inherent. The removal of liberty requires consent.

Senator and Doctor Rand Paul (R-KY) stands to say we are now at a crossroads; at a moment of truth, and he will help lead the effort to withdraw consent if the federal government continues attempting to restrict liberty based around false, misleading and manipulated science.  WATCH:

The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” When people lead, the politicians are forced to follow. Without implied consent the municipal or state government has no power. None.

The power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people. As soon as the majority of people deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power. Yes, it really is that simple.

Those who construct the systems of control need to weaponize fear. Fear of arrest; fear of losing a business; fear of losing liberty or financial security. Local, regional and state officials rely on fear. As soon as We The People are no longer fearful, the control ends.

REMINDER – When I share the message “live your best life”, it is not without purpose. Every moment that we allow the COVID and leftist onslaught to deter us from living our dreams, is a moment those who oppose our nation view as us taking a knee.

Do not allow this effort to succeed.

You might ask yourself how can I, one person, a flea looking into a furnace, retain an optimistic disposition while all around me seems chaotic and mad.

That’s the point; it ‘seems’ chaotic and mad because it has been created to appear that way. There are more of us than them; they just control the systems that allow us to connect, share messages, and recognize the scale of our assembly.

Every second that you live your life with thankfulness for the abundance within it; every moment that we CHOOSE to engage with fellowship; every day that we accept guidance from God – however you define him to be; and every moment we cherish this time to be a beacon of optimism; is a moment that we withstand that barrage and hold the flag in place. It is a genuinely patriotic position not to succumb to the attack.

If you allow yourself to be drawn into crisis and despair, you allow them to win. If your center of normal is based around this overwhelming onslaught, you will eventually concede liberty in favor of peace. Once we stop living in liberty, we no longer have peace.

There is damage behind the masks, the soulless eyes, the lack of smiles and the absence of joy.  We must recognize just how much damage is being done; not just to our nation as a whole, but also to every individual within it – personally.

We must shake this mindset. We must withstand this onslaught and rally to the origin of our true national spirit. We must rally to a standard of Americanism and accept this is not that. In essence, we must individually take a stand. Purposefully, deliberately and with forethought, we must engage those around us to get rid of this sense of foreboding.

This approach is how we win the larger battle.

All around us, in every tribe and region, there are people who need you to show them the strength that you have. Strength of spirit. Strength of fellowship that you will not relent from expressing. No matter what noise is shouting from the loudspeakers, we must withstand it; we must make eye contact and remain joyful. We cannot allow despair to be the status quo.

Our nation needs more people like you, right now. Don’t wait… engage life, get optimistic, however you need to do it. Then, let that part of you shine right now… This is how we fight. Hold up that flag; give the starter smile… rally to the standard you create and spread fellowship again. God knows we need it.

Lift your spirits.  I cannot tell you how much of a difference it makes right now; not only to this internet community, but to our nation as a whole.   Choose to be optimistic. Live your best life right now.  Look around, there are people working valiantly with great purpose, support them. Remember, this is the only life we have – so seize this day, and then the next, and then keep going.

We live in the greatest nation on the face of the earth. We are the people of that nation, with boundless opportunities most of the world can only dream of.  Our opposition has nothing but false witness, fear and lies.  Push on them, they are weak and shallow.

We are Americans…. Those who are working against our interests thrive in an atmosphere of despair and disenfranchisement – do not give it to them.  Carry an optimistic spirit, regardless of how challenging.   Do not fuel our opposition with the power of fear.  Be strong right now; be happy right now; demand action, you are worth it.

Do not give evil elements an inch of space within your heart.   Expect and demand accountability.  Do not worry about being perceived as an a**hole about it.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”  ~Joshua 1:9

Quit listening to those who say “can’t” and “won’t”…  If some feel comfortable sitting in their socially distant box and bitching about all things that are not right, or might be not be right…. Or, if they prefer to allow themselves to be overcome with dark imaginings simply because what cannot be done is more comfortable than the effort to oversee what needs to be done…. well, that’s okay.

They can do that.  And when they are done doing that, they’ll still be in the same place.

However, you can choose to be positive and take action.  Rally your spirits to a standard of worthiness; because you are worth so much more. We are on the right side of history.  We are being guided.

Australian Senator Malcolm Roberts: “If The Government Can Decide Who is Free and Who is Not, There is No Freedom Only Tyranny”


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on August 4, 2021 | Sundance | 187 Comments

Many people have looked at what is taking place in Australia with jaws agape.  Indeed, if there exists any system of western democracy that has taken more stronger totalitarian measures during covid than Australia, they are not easily identified.

There were reports in early 2020 of the United Nations organizing 5-stages of COVID lock-down plans, with “stage-5” being the most restrictive; and the Australian government agreeing to be the beta-test for the fifth stage; the ultimate police state.  If true, that explains the incredibly undemocratic and authoritarian controls triggered by the government down under.

The Australian army is patrolling the streets; all businesses are forcibly shut down; formerly free citizens now locked inside their homes; sky-marshals patrolling from the air and warning via loudspeakers to disperse; concentric rings of physical checkpoints around major metropolitan areas; dissidents and non-conformists identified, targeted and arrested by violent Australian police.  Yes, this sounds like a dystopian science-fiction novel; however, it is all the current reality in Australia…. and the government is claiming they are only in “stage 4“!

One Senator, Malcolm Roberts, warns the Australian government they are on the wrong side of history….  WATCH:

[Transcript] – “As a servant to the people of Queensland and Australia, I speak tonight on freedom. On many occasions in the last year I have addressed the Senate in regard to freedom as a counterbalance to medical tyranny. And I recently addressed the Canberra Freedom Rally, remotely. The side that is locking people up for the crime of being healthy, arresting protesters, pepper spraying kids, beating up grannies, banning books and electronic messages, censoring social media, sending threatening letters, forcing small businesses to close, urging people to dob in dissenters and banning safe drugs that have worked for 60 years are all on the wrong side of history.”

“In a frightening development, New South Wales has called in the troops to keep innocent, healthy citizens locked in their homes in what can only be called martial law.

Recent freedom marches showed what happens to citizens who exercise their democratic right to protest. People are demonized, hunted down; the media vilifies them to discourage others from questioning the control state. If the government can decide who is free and who is not, then that is not freedom and no-one is free. A crisis will always be found to justify measures designed to protect the government, not the public—a crisis that is as is easy to create as turning up the PCR test from 24 cycles to 42, where a false positive is the most likely outcome, as has occurred.

Actions such as these have created a crisis of confidence in government, and that, fellow citizens, is on the Senate. We are the house of review. We’re tasked with a duty to ensure honesty, transparency and accountability in the government of the day. We have failed in that solemn duty, our duty to our constituents. We have failed those who are yet to vote, our children, who are now being injected with a substance that has not undergone meaningful safety testing. The Liberal, National and Labor parties have colluded to waive these measures through this place, reducing the Senate to the status of a dystopian echo chamber.

Each new restriction, although met with rightful public opposition, has not led to a re-evaluation but, rather, has led the government to crack down even further. The Morrison government is behaving like a gambling addict who loses a hand but doubles down instead of admitting error and walking away. With troops now on the streets, it’s frightening to contemplate where this will end.

Everyday Australians are being deliberately demoralized to extract a higher degree of compliance. When COVID first arrived, there were few masks, and the experts and authorities told us masks were not necessary. Now, those same medically ineffective masks are used to condition people to fear and obedience. Crushing resistance crushes hope, and without hope we have no future.

Is it any wonder that small businesses are closing permanently? Every small business that closes is a family that was being provided for through hard work and enterprise. Who will look after those families now—the government? With whose money? The Reserve Bank, using electronic journal entries, can only create fiat money out of thin air for so long before it runs down our country. The government can only sell bonds until buyers stop coming forward. Then what happens? We will have no tax base left to pay government stipends to people who were once able to pay their own way.

Since when has the Liberal Party, the supposedly party of Menzies, been dedicated to making huge sections of the population totally reliant on the government for survival? The bad joke here is that the excuse used to justify the sudden rush to Marxism—public health—is moot. Death from all sources, including coronavirus and the flu, are at historic lows. Australia’s death rate in 2020 was less than in 2019, and 2021’s death rate is lower again. We’re strangling Australia’s economic life and future for no reason. Power has gone to the heads of our elected leaders and unelected bureaucrats, who are exercising powers yet do not feel the consequences themselves.

Never in history has Lord Acton’s famous quote rung more true: ‘Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ It’s been calculated that the civil disobedience tipping point—which is the maximum capacity of the police to arrest people, of the jails to hold people and of the courts to process people—is in Australia around 100,000 people. Anything more than that and the system comes crashing down. Attendance at the freedom rallies last month shows we’re almost there.

No wonder the Morrison government has been scared into resorting to the refuge of tyrants—using the military to intimidate civilians into compliance and to mandating injections and threatening to rip away people’s livelihoods.

Everyday Australians are seeing through the smokescreens of fear and intimidation. People now see that the costs of the restrictions to family and community exceed the medical cost of the virus. Everyday Australians have spoken. We will not be divided, we are united, we are one community, we are one nation.”

GOD AND THE CONSTITUTION


Posted originally on First published on BITCHUTE at 23:11 UTC on July 16th, 2021 by The New American, Daniel Natal

All political ideologies are underpinned by a metaphysical belief-system. Our Constitution (and its notion of individual rights) is predicated on some notion of a Supreme Being. What happens, though, as we transition away from God to the Age of Darwin and Materialism? Has the social contract guaranteeing human rights been canceled out? Do some (very powerful) people make this assertion?

A Reminder About Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley as a Political Operative


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 16, 2021 | Sundance | 91 Comments

Statements made by Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley about his belief that President Trump was contemplating a post-election coup should not be viewed in a vacuum.  Last month this same General Milley was defending the teaching of Critical Race Theory to West Point cadets.  However, the comments Milley made last month, and more attributed today, only solidify several years of CTH watching Milley operate, and now we have answers to previous puzzling questions.

Remember, General Milley did some really odd things as Joint Chiefs Chairman under President Trump:

(1) Milley never removed Lt. Col Alexander Vindman from his White House post after the underling compromised his leadership position. The pentagon left Vindman on assignment to the NSC even after Vindman attempted to take-down President Trump.

(2) Milley was then slow to react to Navy Secretary Richard Spencer threatening President Trump; attempting to extort him into inaction over the disciplinary plans against the SEAL commando, Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher. And perhaps worst of all…

(3) Joint Chief Chairman Milley, and SoS Mike Pompeo traveled to Mar-a-Lago in December 2019, where they informed President Trump of military strikes in Syria and Iraq *after* they took place. [Background Here] [Background Here]. President Trump made Esper, Milley and Pompeo hold a press conference without Trump supporting them; then President Trump remained silent on the issue for days.

It seemed like CTH was alone in noticing the issues with the Pentagon and suspicions of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley. However, a few days after the Mar-a-Lago incident, Col Douglas Macgregor expressed his own suspicions about the U.S. military attack in Iraq and Syria that paralleled our gut reaction. Macgregor stated he believed President Trump was being intentionally and “skillfully, misinformed”.

There were valid reasons for the suspicion around General Milley and the entire Pentagon apparatus.

Factually, President Trump’s strategic approach toward foreign threats and foreign intervention (through the use of geopolitical economic pressure) was a major paradigm shift that removed the Defense Department from a primary role, and placed them back into a more appropriate ‘contingency’ role, when it came to foreign policy and national security.

It was obvious from the outset of the Trump administration that the Pentagon did not like that position.

Before explaining more, let us remember General Milley last month outlining his worldview on internal domestic politics.

Note how Milley connected the teaching of Critical Race Theory to his view that people attempted to “assault” the DC Capitol and “overturn the Constitution of the United States“. Watch this carefully, because in many ways he is saying the quiet thing out loud:

♦ In the big picture, it was not difficult to figure out why the Pentagon would be opposed to Trump.

During the 2016 Trump campaign and early administration, President Trump’s expressed foreign policy was viewed by NATO alliance members as a threat. President Trump dared to tell them their “cold war mentality” was outdated. Heck, the NATO members were simultaneously purchasing energy from Russia at the same time they were demanding the U.S. military protect them from any Russian aggression.

The same type of common sense perspective that startled the NATO alliance members applied internally to the U.S. military.

President Trump’s preferred use of economic warfare made the Pentagon’s role diminished. Instead of punching North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, President Trump hit the checkbook of Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping (tariffs etc.), and then opened diplomatic discussions with the DPRK Chairman. Toward the threat from North Korea, the primary military response became the contingency plan; President Trump engaged in economic leverage, not military…. and it worked.

As a consequence, the value of James Mattis was replaced by the effectiveness of U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. Joint Chief’s Milley was not in the primary planning room; Milley was replaced by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (until he’s needed).

In the Trump era, the President was telling the Pentagon where and when to position; and then he asked them for ‘contingency’ preparation. Decades of Pentagon-centric foreign policy was lessened by an entirely new geopolitical approach based on an economic strategy. This was, in essence, the Trump Doctrine.

President Trump was executing a foreign policy, a clear doctrine of sorts, where national security was achieved by leveraging U.S. economic power. It was a fundamental shift toward allies and adversaries; summarized within the oft repeated phrase: “Economic security is national security.”

The Trump Doctrine of using economics to achieve national security objectives was a fundamental paradigm shift. Modern U.S. history provided no easy reference.

Peace is the prize” ~ President Donald Trump

The nature of the Trump foreign policy doctrine, as it was visible, was to hold manipulative influence agents accountable for regional impact(s); and simultaneously work to stop any corrupted influence from oppressing free expression of national values held by the subservient, dis-empowered, people within the nation being influenced.

There were clear examples of this doctrine at work. When President Trump first visited the Middle-East, he confronted the international audience with a message about dealing with extremist influence agents. President Trump simply said: “Drive them out.”

Toward that end, as Qatar was identified as a financier of extremist ideology, President Trump placed the goal of confrontation upon the Gulf Cooperation Council, not the U.S.

The U.S. role was clearly outlined as supporting the confrontation. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates needed to confront the toxic regional influence; the U.S. would support their objective. That’s what happened.

Another example: To confront the extremism creating the turmoil in Afghanistan, President Trump placed the burden of bringing the Taliban to the table of governance upon primary influence agent Pakistan. Here again, with U.S. support. Pakistan is the leading influence agent over the Taliban in Afghanistan; the Trump administration correctly established the responsibility and gives clear expectations for U.S. support.

If Pakistan doesn’t change their influence objective toward a more constructive alignment with a nationally representative Afghanistan government, it is Pakistan who will be held accountable. Again, the correct and effective appropriation of responsibility upon the influence agent who can initiate the solution, Pakistan.

The process of accurate regional assignment of influence comes with disconcerting sunlight. Often, these influences are not discussed openly. However, for President Trump the lack of honesty is only a crutch to continue enabling poor actors. This is a consistent theme throughout all of President Trump’s foreign policy engagements.

The European Union is a collective co-dependent enabler to the corrupt influences of Iran. Therefore the assignment of responsibility to change the status is placed upon the EU.

The U.S. will fully support the EU effort, but as seen in the withdrawal from the Iran Deal, the U.S. will not enable growth of toxic behavior. The U.S. stands with the people of Iran, but the U.S. will not support the enabling of Iranian oppression, terrorism and/or dangerous military expansion that will ultimately destabilize the region. Trump holds the EU accountable for influencing change. Again, we see the Trump Doctrine at work.

Perhaps the most obvious application of the Trump Doctrine was found in how the U.S. administration approached the challenging behavior of North Korea. Rather than continuing a decades-long policy of ignoring the influence of China, President Trump directly assigned primary responsibility for a reset to Beijing.

China held, and holds, all influence upon North Korea and has long-treated the DPRK as a proxy province to do the bidding of Beijing’s communist old guard. By directly confronting the influence agent, and admitting openly for the world to see (albeit with jaw-dropping tactical sanction diplomacy), President Trump positioned the U.S. to support a peace objective on the entire Korean peninsula and simultaneously forced China to openly display their closely-guarded influence.

While the Red Dragon -vs- Panda influence dynamic is still ongoing, the benefit of this new and strategic approach brought the possibility of peace closer than ever in recent history.

No longer is it outlandish to think of North Korea joining with the rest of the world in achieving a better quality of life for its people.

Not only did President Trump openly share a willingness to engage in a new and dynamic future for North Korea, but his approach removed the toxic international and domestic influences that held down the possibility for generations. By leveraging China (through economics) to stop manipulating North Korea, President Trump opened up a door of possibilities for the North Korean people.

This is what I mean when I say President Trump provided North Korea with an opportunity to create an authentic version of itself.

However, take away U.S. military power and influence, or worse yet, stop using U.S. military power, and the leaders within the military industrial complex start to sense their institution becoming functionally obsolescent. Overlay this U.S. military fear with pre-existing ideological differences and the situation gets worse.  This is what President Trump was facing in the background as the Pentagon viewed the Trump economic strategy as a threat to their previous geopolitical mission under all previous administrations.

Unfortunately, like all other issues in the era of hyper-polarization, normally liberal Democrats would be alarmed about military leadership going rogue with their own agenda. However, as long as that agenda was anti-Trump, the political-left with a totalitarian outlook are now okay with it.

In 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was openly asking the U.S. military to initiate a coup against President Trump. The corporate media didn’t bat an eyelash… The traditional checks-and-balances, things that normally keep us stable, started getting very sketchy within the military; this has only gotten worse in the past year.

Remember,… the impeachment effort was only a “soft-coup” until the uniformed military showed up. Yet these same Pentagon leaders have the nerve now to call a protest in DC, likely manipulated by the FBI, an insurrection “intended to overturn the constitution of the United States of America.” The one thing these ideologues are good at is projection.

“Tell me again how we should “back the blue”, as we watch parents arrested at school board meetings. Tell me again that most FBI agents are good & legitimate, while we watch 15 agents investigate a NASCAR garage pull-down cord while ‘known wolves’ roam free and sexual predators rape teenage Olympic gymnasts. Tell me again. Please, keep telling me…. and when the order comes down to go door to door to collect citizens’ firearms, or to arrest citizens for wrong Facebook thoughts, or for refusing vaccinations, our local police and military will follow orders”… and I will say, “Tell me again”… ~Sundance
