President Trump: Tell John Bolton to Pound Sand

Published

on

Donald Trump took center stage yesterday when he denounced Venezuelan socialism in front of a crowd of Venezuelan-Americans at Florida International University.

Trump called out Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro for his socialist regime’s heavy-handed policies and his decision to block humanitarian aid to Venezuela.

Trump also gave Venezuela’s interim President Juan Guaidó a strong endorsement and implored the Venezuelan people to stand behind him.

It’s refreshing to see an American President make a strong moral case for capitalism and denounce the present-day posterchild of socialist failure.

However, it seems that the hawks in the Trump administration may be starting to gain more clout.

In the same speech, Trump stated that “We seek a peaceful transition of power, but all options are open.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has hinted at a potential military incursion in Venezuela. In 2017, Trump did not rule out a military option in Venezuela when talking to reporters in a New Jersey golf club.

Now, it seems that Trump is still flirting with interventionism.

National security advisor John Bolton, who has never seen a foreign escapade that he didn’t like, has been leading the charge against the so-called “Troika of Tyranny” in Latin America, made up of countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

Not too long ago, Bolton was reported holding a notepad that detailed a rough plan to send 5,000 troops to Colombia. Naturally, this has re-kindled speculation of an intervention in Venezuela.

Indeed, countries like Venezuela are some of Latin America’s most notable political backwaters.

However, these countries are not a direct military threat to the U.S.

Bolton’s hawkish posturing is misguided at best, as any type of potential intervention could create an unprecedented refugee crisis in the region.

If the Boltons of the world want to reduce potential threats from the “Troika of Tyranny” they should stick to the principles that got Donald Trump elected in the first place. That means securing the border with a wall and drastically overhauling America’s immigration system.

Intervening will only create more refugees, which the political Left will take advantage of and guilt American lawmakers into accepting them within our borders.

Yes, Venezuela’s socialist regime should be condemned and ridiculed for its absurd economic policies. But it is ultimately a sovereign nation that willingly embraced socialism.

National sovereignty comes with the right to fail, so Venezuela should be allowed to fail on its own merits.

For those who want to see a better tomorrow for Venezuela, they should make their own private contributions and launch private awareness campaigns.

That being said, the U.S. government should completely stay out. The U.S. has already been involved in far too many nation-building schemes like Afghanistan and Iraq.

Fiscal chickens will come home to roost should the U.S. embark on another foreign adventure.

 

 

 

 

 

Campaign 2020

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
