Senate Neocons Block Trump’s Middle East Withdrawal Plan

Published

on

Yet again the DC swamp class continues to derail President Trump’s pro-America agenda.

In a 68-23 vote in the U.S. Senate, elected officials voted to advance an amendment that opposed President Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Syria. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed his concern about Trump’s withdrawal plan, claiming that “ISIS and al-Qaida have yet to be defeated. “ He added that American national security interests require continued commitment to our missions there.”

This vote is a direct response to President Trump’s announcement in December, to make a withdrawal of all troops from Syria and a significant withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Just like open borders are part and parcel of the globalist status quo in DC,  never-ending wars are another pet project for DC Swamp dwellers. Ever since 9/11, the neoconservative wing of the DC status quo has made it a point to try to rebuild the Middle East along Western democratic lines.

Never mind that the overwhelmingly majority of Middle Eastern countries do not have the cultural or institutional ingredients to make property rights, democracy, or the rule of law work.  Despite that, the “enlightened” classes in DC have tried for 17 years to rebuild Afghanistan after launching the War on Terror.

And this war has come at a steep cost. The US has spent over $1.07 trillion dollars to rebuild the country and lost over 2,350 troops in the conflict. With U.S. Navy Seals taking out Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011, it seemed that the mission in Afghanistan was over. However, DC leaders had other plans and continued with their nation building scheme.

As if Afghanistan and the subsequent Iraq invasion weren’t enough, US neocons set their sights on Syria in 2014 when they decided to get involved in the Syrian Civil War. Under the guise of helping freedom-fighting Syrian rebels, US forces along with France, UK, and the Syrian opposition have worked to topple the government of Bashar al-Assad. Such an ambitious foreign escapade has naturally attracted other foreign actors such as Russia and Iran to come to Syria’s defense.

With no real end in sight, the American populace has become tired of the foreign meddling over the past decade. According to results from J. Wallin Opinion Research survey, “78 percent of Democrats, 64.5 percent of Republicans, and 68.8 percent of independents supported restraining military action overseas.”

This Senate’s latest road blocking antics just show that the DC political class is out of touch with the wants of the American people. For America’s sake, nation-building should be a thing of the past.

President Trump can do right by ignoring the obstructionists in Congress and get our troops out of these entanglements. It’s time for other nations to get their houses in order.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection

Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.

Published

on

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.

God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.

Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.

The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.

Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.

Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
