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.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
