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.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Here’s a suggestion: With General John Kelly becoming Chief of Staff, move Attorney General Sessions over to become Secretary of Homeland Security. Appoint Ted Cruz to become the new Attorney General during the August recess.
 
That way, since Cruz had nothing to do with your campaign, you will have an Attorney General who does not have to recuse himself. Cruz is fearless and will not let Special Counsel Mueller investigate beyond a very narrow scope of inquiry. You would also be throwing a bone to the Never-Trumpers, because Cruz is one of their favorites. It will position you nicely for 2020.
 
In this scenario, everybody wins except for the Democrats, the Deep State, and the mainstream media.

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!

COMMON SENSE: The Comey adventure has more twists than a season of “Fargo.”Having written extensively about the mishandling of the Clinton investigation in Creating Trump Nation, it is apparent to me that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used the power of her office to ensure Hillary Clinton was not indicted, as she should have been.

 
Since Lynch was promised that she would remain her position as Attorney General with a Clinton victory, Lynch’s actions were corrupt. This means Loretta Lynch is guilty of Obstruction of Justice—the exact crime the Democrats are trying to falsely charge President Trump with committing.
 
How ironic that the Democrat’s strategy of connivance has come back to haunt them, and that Comey—America’s Quisling—will inadvertently have orchestrated a major corruption investigation into the bowels of the Deep State. While trying to hurt Trump, Comey has actually expose Lynch, Hillary, and a slew of others to a criminal investigation.
 
Maybe Trump’s campaign slogan, “Lock her up,” will finally come to fruition. Let’s hope so. What’s that they say about Karma?

COMMON SENSE: How can we prosecute Reality Winner and not prosecute James Comey? The answer is, we cant.

 
Comey, working on his FBI computer, on company time, while riding in his FBI limousine, wrote about his meeting in the Oval Office with the President of the United States. What he wrote is a work document, and it does not belong to him. He’s a lawyer; he knows that, or he should know it. Any private meeting with the President is classified by nature. This makes Comey’s willful, intentional act of leaking an FBI document to the New York Times a felony. It also makes his Law Professor friend at Columbia University an accomplice.
 
Foolishly, Comey has admitted his guilt before 200 million Americans, and he needs to spend 10 years in Leavenworth for his crime. Either that, or don’t press charges on a misguided but idealistic twenty-five-year-old. She had no concept of the consequences of her actions, Comey certainly did. His goal was to bring down the President, but that’s not going to happen. Let him think about that in a cell for the next ten years.

12434698_10208354548806112_17676164_nCOMMON SENSE: The entire narrative of Trump’s collusion with Russia, now debunked, was carefully scripted to keep the President from achieving the goals he was elected to implement. Because the Progressives do not want to see the Trump agenda enacted, they would prefer to destroy the nation instead.

Led by John Podesta and Robby Mook from Hillary’s campaign, at least half of our nation has been seduced by false news stories. The Deep State, which includes former FBI Director Comey and nearly all of the mainstream media, has knowingly falsified information to destroy our President. What they have been doing is criminal, and they should be held to account for their crimes, especially Loretta Lynch and Hillary.

It’s time to fight back. Now that we know the truth, let us use it to set our nation free. We need to get back on track immediately. Let’s redouble our efforts to Make America Great Again.

I have been right about this all along, as “Creating Trump Nation” confirms:

COMMON SENSE: Surprisingly, so far in his Presidency, Donald Trump, the successful businessman, has been more successful in foreign policy than he has with his domestic agenda. There is a reason for this.
 
Other nations worldwide, having been adversely impacted by the absence of American leadership under Obama, are anxious for our new President to restore order throughout the world, which he is doing. In the Middle East, President Trump has gained the cooperation of fifty Muslim nations to fight terror at the grassroots. In Asia, he has confronted North Korea head on, and has also eased tensions with China—no small task.
 
Now, he is in Belgium, addressing the problems of NATO, our primary alliance in the world. At this point, 24 of our 29 partners are not keeping their commitments to spend 2% of GDP on defense, while we are increasing our indebtedness by spending nearly 4% to defend them. Instead of begging our allies to pay their fair share, like George W. Bush and Barack Obama did, Trump should demand that they pay up or leave the alliance. That will get their attention. Why should we pay for defending them, when we are in debt and they are thriving?
 
Trump’s domestic agenda isn’t doing as well, primarily because the Progressive Democrats have forced him to remain on the defense. Led by the media, who have viciously opposed Trump and everything he wants, Trump hasn’t gained the traction he needs to move us forward. Despite this, so far this quarter, our growth rate is above 4%, something Obama never came close to achieving.
