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.

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: 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: The Donald Trump, Jr. story is a non-story. At worst, he made a bad decision to meet with the female Russian lawyer, which is certainly not a crime. The woman had no information about Hillary to give; there was no money exchanged; and there was no follow-up meeting.

 
That it was poor judgment on his part I’ll give you, but this is much ado about nothing. What is serious, however, is the continuous discord this produces in the nation. It also undermines all efforts to normalize our relationship with Russia, which can have very serious consequences in the future.
 
Regardless of this, the Progressive media is obsessed with discrediting President Trump no matter what he does. So are some Republicans. The viciousness never abates, which means we have to hold our ground daily against the media’s relentless attacks. None of this is healthy for our nation, but it is what it is. We will fight back—trust me about this. We will.

search.jpgCOMMON SENSE: This is what is behind the growing conflict between Russia and the United States. Russia is an energy exporting country. It provides natural gas to Eastern Europe, the Scandinavian countries, and even to to some of the Western European Democracies. This means Russia can exert political pressure by simply turning off the pipelines in the winter, which all of these nations understand. This is real leverage.
 
In America, Trump has granted permits to several companies to liquify some of our vast natural gas deposits. Once liquified, the natural gas can be shipped to Europe or elsewhere and de-liquified to heat homes. Once this procedure becomes operational, Russia will not only have a competitor, but its geopolitical leverage will also cease to exist, and Putin’s dream of recreating the Soviet Union will end. Hence, this is why we now have Cold War II.
 
Obama was either not wise enough to take advantage of this, or his desire to take America down “a notch or two” wouldn’t allow him to move forward with this. Trump, on the other hand, wanting to make America great again, has moved swiftly and decisively to make the United States an energy superpower. When he has his “little talk” with Putin at the G-20 Conference, you can be certain this issue will be discussed.

COMMON SENSE: For decades, the encroachment of godless Progressivism has made uninterrupted gains in our nation, and Conservative Christians have been their primary target. This should be obvious, even to those who do not pay much attention to politics.

Starting in 2010, the tide began to change with the unseating of Speaker Pelosi. In 2016, with the election of Trump, the tide turned dramatically. Progressivism is being pushed back so decisively that the media and the Democrats will do anything to reverse the course and regain power. But each of their efforts, including the “Russian Collusion” narrative, have proven to be counterproductive.

Now, their connivance is coming back to bite them, and there will be noting they can do to stop it. Loretta Lynch is corrupt, which will lead to Hillary, and they have brought it all on themselves. The 2018 elections will be another disaster for the Democrats, and they don’t even realize it. Do I feel sorry for them? Hell No!
