NATO and The Loud Yank in the Room

It is no secret that the twenty-nine member country’s that compose NATO was dying by economic atrophy because few of those countries were not paying their fair share⏤a mere 2% of each country’s GDP. They anticipated that the United States would, as always, pick up the tab, needing to be loved around the world. Germany is the worst offender.
The leaders of these European country’s, and Canada, have had three years to take the measure of Donald Trump and gauge his temperament. Because he’s a loud, boisterous Yank, they have written him off as a buffoon of sorts, not to be taken seriously until he started turning off their money taps while reminding them of their obligations to support NATO.
When Trump was campaigning he said that NATO needed reform so it could meet the increasing challenges of the post-Cold War era, most particularly a growing Russia, and Islamic terrorism. To be relevant in today’s century the importance of each member state to be up to par  materially and economically, hadn’t changed from the Cold War era. It was simply allowed to wither. Even the US Military was allowed to decline from the world’s only military superpower to the laughably socially engineered champions of diversity and inclusion. Weapon systems were not sustained, modernized or increased, but Obama made male soldiers to be fitted with high heel shoes to feel the pain of what women feel. 
Trump saw all that as nonsense and said so. He vehemently raised loud objections to the unequal role the US played in sustaining NATO, including what former US Presidents had allowed to happen.

Trump understands facts, economics and how the US taxpayers were being screwed. The fact that America was contributing vast amounts of taxpayers cash to NATO while the effete European begged off their treaty spending commitments, irked him beyond measure.

Trump was having none of it and became adamant about restoring NATO to its previous strengths by demanding all the members pony up their share. That could only be done by telling them, and the world, over and over again, to get off their cans and pay up so that us poor sots, the  American taxpayer, were no longer obliged to carry the burden of the Europeans security needs. Poland is one country that sees it obligations and are paid in full.
Shortly after taking office Trump said: ”Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on (European) defense than all other NATO countries combined,” “Two percent is the bare minimum for confronting today’s very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.” I’ll bet they hated hearing that. Logically, Trump is spot on. An alliance like NATO cannot rely on one “sugar daddy’ member country to carry the load for all.
When Trump speaks, the leftist media always reports his remarks out of context portraying, as they always do, Trump as an opponent of NATO intent on undermining the alliance. Trump may be loud and boisterous but he carries a big stick. They are all starting to realize that. Donald Trump is working hard to revamp the alliance so that it can meet the security challenges of the 21st century — and his outreach to NATO countries is accomplishing just that.
At this weeks London NATO summit, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the alliance was “making real progress” on burden-sharing. He pointed out that Canada and the European members had invested an additional $130 billion on defense since 2016, with the goal of reaching $400 billion by 2024. Wow! 
The fact that the French speaking leaders undertook to criticize President Trump behind his back with snide insulting remarks, and on an open microphone no less, only serves to show that, like the Democrats, the wannabe world leaders still don’t accept there is a loud Yank in the room and he’s in charge. Image: AP
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

If you’re wondering what affiliations are connected with the CDC through partnerships of Corporations, Foundations & Organizations, look no further, you will see a pattern emerge, and why the push for vaccinations is everywhere we go, there are so many groups doing business with the CDC.

Bush invoked January 6th in his comments on the hallowed ground of Shanksville during the 9/11 ceremonies. In the flight path of the downed airliner, Bush made the following statement: ‘’Violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” “are children of the same foul spirit.” What Bush said is simply the talking points of the establishment…

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

We have had no side effects that we are aware of from the vaccine. Does this mean we are free from future side-effects? Should we forego any boosters? Did the vaccine destroy our natural immunity? Should I be more concerned about getting the virus or future variants? How accurate is the VAERS data? Join us on the Voice of a Nation for our third COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough…

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”

Indeed there are extremists here in this country that we need to be concerned with. They are the career politicians who stay in office for decades, an ‘extreme’ length of time for anyone to hold political office. And Barack Obama is an extremist. After all, he wants to “fundamentally transform” the United States…

If there is one constant in politics today, it’s that politicians lie. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet is a perfect lie… “Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have. Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule.”

The Tragic Human and National Security Consequences of Biden’s Withdrawal

Epic blunders: abandoning our most strategic Bagram Air Base in the middle of the night without informing the Afghan military and our NATO allies, and leaving behind more than $80 billion of weaponry that has made the Taliban one of the world’s best-equipped military forces. Taliban trophies include more than 100 helicopters, including 33 Black Hawks, four C-130 transport planes, and about 60 other fixed-wing aircraft…
