AMERICA FIRST: Trump Directs U.S. Troop Reduction in Germany

Published

on

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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
