12573733_828304790628555_5483197664783316735_nCOMMON SENSE: French is the language of diplomacy and has been for half a millennium. It’s why there are so many French words and phrases that have come into the English language concerning foreign policy—words like rapprochement, fait accompli, and de facto/de jure. The cardinal rule of diplomacy is understatement. In diplomacy, to say an act by another nation is “unfriendly” is close to declaring war.
 
The Progressives, especially in the media, have been very critical of President Trump for using the term, “Fire and Fury,” when speaking out about our current crisis with Kim Jung-un of North Korea. Specifically, they are enraged because Trump’s words were well outside of normal, appropriate diplomatic language.
 
I disagree with the media’s assessment. The language of diplomacy will work with nearly all nation-states, but it is actually counterproductive with a rogue nation like North Korea.
 
Before SWorld War II, Winston Churchill was criticized by appeasers to Hitler for being bombastic and crude, but Churchill was right and Neville Chamberlain was wrong. In our current crisis, all that Kim Jung-un understands is brute force, and that is what Trump has given him. Neither Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, nor Barack Obama were willing to be confrontational. Consequently, the North Koreans have considered the USA to be weak—a paper tiger.
 
Trump, standing up for the American people, is calling their bluff. Kim Jong-un has two choices. Either he can attack and be destroyed, or he can backdown and lose face. Either way, his days are numbered. To be sure, this is brinkmanship diplomacy, but I do not believe it will lead to thermonuclear war. That’s the way I see it.

161534_100003471255753_672416768_nCOMMON SENSE: Barack Obama’s policy of “Strategic Patience,” which should have been more appropriately called “Fearful Incompetence,” was a colossal failure on the Korean peninsula, but Obama is not alone in his ineptitude. Neither George W. Bush nor Bill Clinton did anything to solve the North Korean problem, when it was more easily solvable.
 
Now, we are faced with a rogue nation willing to use its nuclear arsenal against the USA and our allies, South Korea and Japan. This is a problem Donald Trump has been given. He didn’t create it.
 
Trump is being criticized for using the phrase, “Fire and Fury,” by Diane Feinstein, Chuck Shumer, John McCain, and others, but this was not an offhanded remark by the President. It was a planned, measured statement of the intent of the United States. For a quarter of a century, the North Koreans have counted on indecisiveness and weakness form the USA to build their nuclear arsenal, but those days are over. Trump may seem reckless to some, but this will work to our favor with the North Koreans.
 
Kim Jong Un is taking the world to the brink of nuclear war, hoping to get the USA to back down, just like we have done for the past three administrations, but Un does not know who he is dealing with, which makes this situation more serious and more unpredictable. Trump will not back down, and Un is unwilling to lose face internationally and with his terrified people.
 
Additionally, to truly understand the situation, you have to add Iran to the mix. Their nuclear program is in lockstep with the North Korea’s, forming a new Axis of Evil. The Iranians, who are desirous of annihilating Israel and the Great Satan, the USA, are doing everything they can to promote war in the Far East. Their reason for doing this is to distract the USA with the Iranians goal of recreating the Persian Empire, a caliphate called The Western Crescent, which has been funded by Barack Obama with your tax dollars.
 
The chances of this resolving peacefully with North Korea now, and with Iran in the future, are practically nil, but this is exactly what we are praying will happen. I wish I had better news for you, but I don’t.

COMMON SENSE: If there was ever a time for Christians, and other people of faith, to come together and pray for the safety of our great nation, it is now. Please join me.

 
Father, Lord God, Almighty,
It is with a heavy heart that we come before you today,
Praying for the continued safety of the American people.
As the threat of the unthinkable looms before us,
And fear of a nuclear holocaust grips our heart,
We bow our collective knees before You and
Ask that You spare our great nation from this catastrophe.
Father, we know who we are. We have been willful,
Arrogant, stubborn, and self-righteous, by disregarding
Your way, Your will, and Your leading, but we are also
Your sons and daughters—children of the great
Men and women of old, who knew You well,
Proclaiming Your name throughout the earth.
As the offspring of those who championed Christ
For centuries, spare us from this impending destruction,
Despite how wayward our generation has become and how far
We have strayed from Your ways for so many decades.
 
The North Koreans, have been captivated by a madman—a fool
Who loathes Your children and the nation we have established.
Even as we pray, Kim Jong Un is racing headlong to war with us,
As he leads his suffering people toward the abyss of annihilation.
He fully intends to bring catastrophe to his people and to ours,
Just to save face and to “Slap the United States” with a
Nuclear weapon that he now has the capability of firing at us.
Father, foil this madman’s plans. Let all of his evil machinations
Come back on his head, and do not allow his threat to become real.
For the sake of Your children, let us continue to enjoy peace.
We know how undeserving we are, but we ask this nevertheless,
In the name of Your Son and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
Amen

COMMON SENSE: In order to understand what is really happening in America, you must link events together and not look at them as being independent. For example, although Barack Obama hated Hillary Clinton, he wanted her to win the election. He was not neutral. Despite his personal disdain, he wanted her elected for reasons other than her being a Democrat.
 
If Hillary had won, knowing how corrupt she was, Obama realized she would not allow any of his corruption to be investigated. Hillary would also protect Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Samantha Powers, Ben Rhodes, and a host of others who were just as corrupt and duplicitous as anybody involved with Team Hillary. Being a statist, semi-globalist, and deeply deceitful made Hillary Obama’s perfect successor.
 
Then along came Trump, with his America First agenda, all of which is antithetical to everything Obama and Hillary stand for. This makes Trump their natural enemy, but it does far more than that. Neither Hillary or Obama factored in a Trump victory. Now, the Dynamic Duo of Corruption are terrified that their web of deception will be exposed, and they will have to pay a terrible penalty.
 
The only way for them to keep from being exposed was to go on the offensive and have Trump taken out before their sins found them out. This is what’s behind the Mueller investigation.
 
To counter this, the Trump administration needs to open an investigation into Obama’s corruption and Hillary’s racketeering. It’s a strategy that will win for Trump, the American people, and for the Rule of Law. This needs to happen immediately. It cannot wait.
 
It grieves me that our nation has come to this, but it has. For America to be Great Again, the Obama administration and Team Hillary need to be exposed to the light of day, and they need to be held accountable for their crimes.

COMMON SENSE: Quietly, while the media has focused its attention exclusively on Russian collusion and the evils of Donald Trump, the President has been busy making America great again. Since the day after his victory, with the promise of deregulation forthcoming, the economy began to surge. Now, six months into his first term, he has added $4 trillion in growth, achieved close to full employment, and created an environment that favors working people over deadbeats.
 
But this pales in importance to what he has accomplished geopolitically. By permitting the energy industry in America to liquify natural gas, which Obama vehemently opposed, we are now able to ship natural gas to Europe to be de-liquified and used to heat the homes in Scandinavia, Poland, Germany, the Baltic nations, and many others.
 
By doing this, the USA is crippling Russia’s energy stranglehold on Eastern Europe, the Baltics, and the rest of Europe, effectively ending Vladimir Putin’s dream of reestablishing the mighty Soviet Union. From now on, Russian energy, their only valuable export, will have to compete with American energy, which neutralizes Russia’s ability to leverage its influence throughout Europe.
 
If Trump never accomplishes another thing in his Presidency, this move will make America great again. It’s that significant. It will increase American influence throughout Europe, while simultaneously decreasing Russian influence, the very thing Putin feared Trump would do.

COMMON SENSE: On his staff, Special Investigator Robert Mueller has sixteen full time prosecutors. He has impanelled two separate grand juries, but there is no underlying crime for him to investigate. For one year, despite all of the clamoring of President Trump’s critics, there hasn’t been even one documentable crime. Nevertheless, in their bitterness, Trump’s enemies are determined to drive him out of office, even if it destroys the most stable democracy in the history of the world.
 
Just as bad, the Special Investigator was appointed because the President fired a corrupt Director of the FBI. In retaliation, Comey, sleaze that he is, leaked privileged information to the “New York Times,” for the express purpose of having an Independent Investigator appointed—all in vengeful retaliation for his legitimate firing.
 
Meanwhile, there has been no Special Investigator appointed to seek justice for those who were unlawfully unmasked by senior Obama administration appointees, which definitely is a crime. There hasn’t been a grand jury impanelled to investigate Hillary’s uranium deal with Russia, her pay-to-play access to the State Department, or her charitable foundation that gives less than 5% of its funds to worthy causes.
 
Despite all of this, Trump is making America great again. The economy is booming, due to Trump’s deregulation. Once again, under his leadership, our allies trust us, and our enemies fear us, which is the exact opposite to the record of the Obama administration.
 
Like Nehemiah, Trump has to rebuild the walls for our nation, while constantly having to fight off his enemies, but this is exactly what Trump is doing. He is being success for the same reason Nehemiah was. Trump has the favor of Almighty God. Because the Progressives do not, all they can do is chafe, just as Sanballat did toward Nehemiah twenty-five hundred years ago.

COMMON SENSE: Conservatives have a problem, and it’s a serious one. Instead of acting like we are the victors, we are constantly looking over our collective shoulders, wondering how the Progressive Leftwing Media and the corrupt Democrats are going to snatch our success away from us. Since we are used to losing, we are behaving like losers instead of like winners.
 
The Left doesn’t have the same problem, quite the contrary. Because they have won for so long, they assume they are going to win. It’s their right to win, and the only right we have is to complain about it.
 
For us to fulfill the agenda we fought so hard to create, we must start acting like winners and not like losers. To begin with, we need to stop whining about the media’s criticism. Let them lambast us all they want. We have the power, and our mandate is growing, not shrinking. Even with the dead weight of RINOs in Congress, deregulation is producing massive growth that will benefit all Americans, including Millennials.
 
As Obama’s disastrous legacy is being dismantled one piece at a time, we should be celebrating, while pushing steadily forward, rather than wondering how the Left is going to take it from us. Forget about them. Let them chafe. Bitterness is their drink, but it is not ours. Be strong and immovable. If you will do this, we will be able to solidify our gains.
