The Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump is instructing the Pentagon to remove thousands of American troops from Germany by September.
U.S. government officials announced this development on June 5, 2020.
This move would scale back the U.S. troop presence in Germany by 9,500 troops from the 34,500 troops that are permanently stationed there.
The move also limits the number of U.S. service members who are in Germany at any given moment to a total of 25,000 troops, which includes “permanently assigned and rotational or temporary forces.” Under the current policy, total troop levels can rise up to 52,000 units as these units “rotate in and out or take part in training exercises.”
This change in policy was directed by the White House in a memo that was recently signed by the White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, according to official reports on June 5.
One person well aware of the decision said that it has been discussed among administration officials since September and was not connected to the decision by German Chancellor Angela Merkel not to participate in a G-7 meeting that President Trump was expected to host in Washington at the end of June.
This comes at time when U.S. relations with Germany have become more tense regarding Germany’s level of military spending.
Richard Grenell, the former ambassador to Germany, has long advocated for cutting troops based on complaints that the German government isn’t spending enough money for its own defense.
Last year, Germany’s defense minister promised to reach the NATO goal of spending 2% of its GDP on defense, but the target date meeting for the objective is 2031.
For America First advocates, who have long pushed for withdrawing troops, the Trump administration’s decision to remove troops is good news.
Due to the defense industry’s influence, the U.S. has become militarily over-stretched and has placed hundreds of thousands of troops in countries that are more than capable of defending themselves.
Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
