As many of you know, I supported Donald Trump for President in 2016. I did so for a variety of reasons, and do not regret it. I knew he was not perfect but could tell he was not apart of the establishment gang. He spoke truth to power, and it was refreshing. His foreign policy was the best of all. Trump regularly called out George W. Bush. He called out Republicans. He called the Iraq War the worst policy in history. He wanted to spend the money we waste abroad on wars in the homeland to build up America and Make America Great Again.
This was what he espoused on the campaign trail, but that has changed now that he is in the White House. Trump is losing his way and embarking upon similar policies as his predecessors. There was incredible progress in Syria that was achieved in 2017, and it is now in jeopardy. Trump reversed the policies of Barack Hussein Obama that were funneling weapons to ISIS and other Muslim terror groups to dispose the regime of Bashar al-Assad. This allowed Assad along with the Russians to decimate ISIS in the region. Without ISIS around as a threat, there is no longer a bogeyman in the region that can be used to justify endless war. That is why the complicit Western media has made Assad and Putin — the men who literally saved the world from ISIS — into the new bogeymen.
Trump’s recent bombing of Syria and the Assad regime only helps ISIS. He is playing into the hands of his enemies. The only way ISIS can gain a foothold in Syria is if Assad is disposed from that country. Assad is the protector of Christians in the region. Assad is the crusher of radical Islam in the region. Compared to other rulers in the Middle East, he is not repressive. Our “strong ally” in Saudi Arabia, for one example, is far more brutal than Assad by every possible metric and commits war crimes in Yemen that dwarf anything Assad has ever done. This hypocrisy is pushed by the Western media to drive the war machine, which won’t be happy until the entire Middle East is on fire and America is looted completely.
What has made me particularly sad and disgusted is to see many Republicans and many Christians falling for these lies. Self-professed followers of Christ cheer as the man who protects Christians in Syria from slaughter is framed for chemical attacks he did not commit and bombarded for no good reason. So-called Republicans who elected Trump to make America great again and put America first now support the exact same failed policies of Bush and Obama. Why does the American public refuse to learn? Why are Americans so willfully ignorant of basic facts? This collective amnesia allows America to be abused like a two-dollar whore by the globalists, and Trump is apparently ill-equipped to stop them.
Trump has already set a dangerous precedent with his unauthorized strikes of Syria, but now he needs to stop. Trump has said ‘Mission Accomplished’ but that does not mean the dangers have subsided. There are powerful interests that want us to remain in Syria for a long time, and they are leaning on Trump to get their way right now. The Israeli government, for instance, wants us to remain in the region to fight Iran and Syria on their behalf. Israel is a first-world nation with a massive military, and they can defend themselves. It does not benefit America to launch wars in Syria or Iran, and Trump was elected to put America first not to put Israel First. We saw how disastrous our wars with Iraq and Libya turned out to be. We have to resist the lies and urge others to do so.
Call President Donald Trump at 202-456-1111.
We have to blow up his phone. Make several calls and encourage others to do so. Trump will respond to pressure, but we have to be firm. We have to hold Donald Trump to his campaign promises. I supported him from the start, but understand that we elected him to be a servant leader. As Americans, we support a Constitutional system with checks and balances. We must remember our principles. We must remember that it is important to hold government officials accountable as our forefathers did. We must demand that Trump do the right thing, and avoid another grizzly unnecessary war. Remember your mandate, Trump, and get back to work fighting the globalists rather than parroting their talking points.
