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.

Dallas County Safer-at-Home Order in Effect Until April 30, Could be Extended

Published

on

On Friday, April 3, 2020 Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins clarified that his Safer-at-Home order is in effect until April 30. This came after the commissioner’s court signed off an extension of the county’s disaster declaration until May 20 earlier in the day. This led to confusion about how long the stay at home order would remain in place.

According to members of the commissioner’s court, the extension of both the disaster declaration and Safer-at-Home order were greenlit until May 20. The vote to approve the extension of the disaster declaration was conducted on Friday morning during a special meeting of the Dallas County Commissioner’s Court. At the meeting, Jenkins shared numerous Wuhan virus projection models illustrating a rise in the number of which are expected to peak in the county on April 20.

However, Jenkins clarified on Friday afternoon that the Safer-at-Home orders and the Disaster Declaration are different documents and that the commissioner’s court approved the extension to the Disaster Declaration, although it was still up to him to determine the effective dates of his Safer-at-Home order.

On Twitter, Jenkins revealed that the Safer-at-Home order will now go into effect through April 30. Jenkins noted that he has the power to extend the Safer-at-Home order until May 20 if he has to, since the disaster declaration had been approved until that date.

Jenkins tweeted, “Based on the extension of the Declaration of Disaster granted today, I am extending the Dallas County Safer at Home Order to April 30. The Declaration of Disaster is necessary to provide the tools to lead you through this. The Safer at Home Orders are the rules we ask of you.”

County Commissioner John Wiley Price, who represents the southern portion of Dallas, was the only person who voted against the plan claiming that the restrictions that are currently in effect are “choking” his constituents and recommended that the court allow pawn shops to stay open as an essential business so that people could have easier access to cash.

“We’re going to just kill off an entire community in the next 60 days.” Price declared. “Pick our poison. We either go with COVID-19 and die or we just economically die.”

Certain businesses have been greatly impacted by these closures.

Bar owner Joe Hinkson revealed that he’s lost more than 90 percent of his business.

“I’m livid,” Hinkson stated. “A bar has a short shelf life typically and to survive and prosper and grow in the 10-year period, and be open for 11 years and have something like this happen.”

Texas has taken a relatively lenient approach to the Wuhan Virus by declaring gun stores as essential businesses and not implementing a full-blown lockdown.

However, the more progressive urban centers in Texas will look to find ways to make people’s lives miserable.
