FINALLY: Matt Gaetz Lays Out ‘The Trump Doctrine’…America First!

Published

on

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz delivered a speech Wednesday that emphasized foreign policy restraint.

At a Concerned Vets for America event, Gaetz laid out what he called the “Trump Doctrine,” a clear departure from the neoconservative nation-building of the past few decades.

He criticized the “forever war” in Afghanistan, saying that “In Afghanistan, after two decades have passed, trillions spent, and thousands of American lives lost, the situation on the ground is actually getting worse!”

Gaetz went on to comment about the follies of nation building:

 

Although Gaetz emphasized the need for foreign policy restraint, he by no means suggested that the entire military be gutted. The Florida congressman still wants America to be the most powerful military force in the globe.

I never want to send America’s troops into a fair fight. That means providing the funding, equipment, infrastructure & arms to achieve decisive victory every single time. The US military must & will remain the biggest, strongest & most lethal fighting force in human history.

 

Gaetz highlighted importance of strong borders and how America must focus on securing its own borders instead of fighting for other countries’ interests.

 

One of the high points of Gaetz’s speech was his direct shot at defense interests and other groups that want to launch America into perpetual wars.

Real morality and real toughness is standing up to the pro-war special interests and globalist powerbrokers. Real morality is affirming forever that the blood of American troops is not for sale.

Overall, Gaetz’s speech presented a new path for American foreign policy. Gaetz has been consistent in his vision for an America First foreign policy by voting for a resolution to end the Yemeni Civil War and by also advocating for a non-interventionist course of action in Venezuela.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
