President Donald Trump’s common sense foreign policy is falling apart, thanks in large part to rogue actions conducted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton that have undermined his ‘America First’ mandate.
Bolton is claiming without evidence that “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” coming from Iran are justifying an additional military presence in the region.

This comes just two days after Bolton issued a statement declaring that the U.S. would unleash the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group as well as a bomber task force to the Middle East to show Iran who’s boss.
“The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces,” said Bolton, who supported every disastrous military intervention of the Bush and Obama regimes.
While Bolton inflames hostilities in Iran, Pompeo is busy pressing for conflict in Venezuela. With socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro’s regime hanging by a thread, U.S. meddling has given the fledgling regime a rallying cry to regain popular support.

Pompeo’s failure has only caused him to become more belligerent in his threats against Venezuela.
“The President has been crystal clear and incredibly consistent. Military action is possible. If that’s what’s required, that’s what the United States will do,” Pompeo said during an appearance on the Fox Business Network.
He made it clear that the U.S. will ultimately decide who rules over Venezuela, and that their will will be imposed by force if necessary.
“We’d prefer a peaceful transition of government there, where Maduro leaves and a new election is held. But the President has made clear, in the event that there comes a moment — and we’ll all have to make decisions about when that moment is — and the President will have to ultimately make that decision. He is prepared to do that if that’s what’s required,” Pompeo said.
Pompeo may claim to speak for the President, but that is not necessarily the case.
After talking with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone, it does not seem as if Trump’s mindset is congruent with his hawkish advisers any longer. After faux-president Juan Guiado’s “revolution” that was largely promulgated for the TV screens fizzled out in a day, Trump is beginning to change his tune on Venezuela.
“He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he’d like to see something positive happen,” Trump said about Putin last week. “I feel the same way.”
“The president of Russia underscored that only the Venezuelans themselves have the right to determine the future of their country,” Putin’s office said in a press release.
“Attempts to change the government in Caracas by force undermine prospects for a political settlement of the crisis,” Putin’s office continued.
Much to the chagrin of the weathered military-industrial complex disciple Pompeo the mustachioed warmonger Bolton, Trump reportedly believes that a war in Iran would be another Iraq-style disaster – thanks in large part to the lobbying work of non-interventionist Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
“You do not have the permission of Congress to go to war with Iran,” Paul said to the squirming Pompeo last month as he tried to weasel out of answering a question directly. “Only Congress can declare war.”
Pompeo takes great pride in deceiving the American public, actually having the audacity to claim that the deep state’s disinformation campaigns remind him “of the glory of the American experiment.”
President Trump will have to remain wary of the neoconservative war hawks scheming within his administration, unless he decides to remove them and replace them with conservative ‘America First’ patriots.
Young Republican Group Comes to Armenia’s Defense
NYYRC stands with Armenia in the conflict.
The New York Young Republican Club came to the defense of the state of Armenia on September 29, 2020 and condemned the government of Azerbaijan for its attack on the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh over the last weekend. The group called on the U.S. government and all sovereign bodies to recognize the independence of the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and take necessary steps to prevent further attacks by the Azerbaijani government and its Islamist allies.
The Republican youth group fully supports the Armenian people and cited their long history as one of the many reasons they merit support from the West. It brought forward some historical points:
The Armenian people have a long history in the South Caucasus and the Armenian Highlands. The Republic of Artsakh contains sites of great historical significance to them, including the fourth-century Amaras Monastery. In the twentieth century, geopolitical events in Turkey and the Soviet Union dispossessed Armenians of much of their historic territory. The Armenian Genocide conducted by Turks destroyed untold lives and stole Mount Ararat from the Armenians. Further incursions into territory integral to the history and fundamental identity of the Armenian people cannot be tolerated.
In the statement, the Republican group called out the “Fake News Media” for “inadequately” relaying “the truth of the events unfolding in the Republic of Artsakh.” It called attention to how Turkey has fostered chaos by using its Islamist proxies in Syria and sending them to Armenia to terrorize Armenians. The group expanded on the over-arching trend of growing Islamic radicalism directed towards Christian nations:
This continues a trend from decades ago whereby Armenia’s neighbors enlisted Afghan Mujahideen and Chechen mercenaries to attack. Allowing Turkey and Azerbaijan to use Radical Islamic Terrorists to attack Armenian Christians represents a dereliction of the United States’s fundamental values.
The Young Republican Club concluded its statement with the following:
The New York Young Republican Club stands with the Armenian people and residents of the Republic of Artsakh, who overwhelmingly reject Azerbaijani claims of authority. We urge the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh to cooperate efficaciously in the interest of the Armenian people, and we implore the global Armenian diaspora advocate in the shared interests of all Armenians. In addition, we request that President Donald J Trump enact economic and trade sanctions against Turkey and Azerbaijan.
BLP was able to get in touch with Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club, and get his thoughts on this matter.
Wax stated, “Armenia is on the frontlines fighting back against Islamist aggression. The disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan is almost 99% Armenian. It is rightful Armenian territory. The oldest Christian state in the world should be defended by the West not abandoned.”
This current conflict demonstrates the naivete of American foreign policy with regards to how it has coddled Turkey for so long and allowed it to run around and cause geopolitical havoc.
Additionally, this demonstrates the uselessness of alliances such as NATO, which has already become outdated and compromised thanks to the inclusion of Turkey in it.
As the U.S.’s very own oil boom continues in motion, it should withdraw from the Middle East and focus more on its domestic and Western Hemisphere affairs.
Nevertheless, it should offer moral support and give Armenia diplomatic cover against predatory states such as Azerbaijan and Turkey. The latter is trying to re-enact Neo-Ottoman fantasies that will likely leave many Christian nations devastated.
