Giving credit where credit is due (and frankly, bypassing any more shenanigans inflicted on Roy Moore by obvious Big Fake News multi-corporations) I slid into the upcoming article in The American Spectator while doing my research the other day, and it’s from Don Surber on President Trump’s Amazing Asia trip (Surber’s accolade, not mine). A scant investigation into the same Big Fake News multi-corporations reveals that one would indeed wonder whether president Trump had even been in Asia or not. Such was the scarcity of reportage.
We the People have been lectured-to from all and sundry since his first day in office about Trump not knowing, nor understanding, anything about foreign policy; that he hasn’t a clue as to how to conduct himself; will embarrass us, will be a complete failure, will, will, will … simply fill in the blanks. I well remember Rush Limbaugh proclaiming something along the line of “abstaining works, every time it’s tried”. Well, it would appear to be that “putting America first” works every time it’s tried as well.
Put in another context, it’s such a breath of fresh air not having to watch another bend-over kow-tow anti-American Apology Tour!
No apology needed thank you very much, especially when the president went ahead and honored the Chinese with enormous respect when he said, “congrats, you bested us”, a comment which went right to the heart of the Chinese, while going right over the heads of the modern trash-talkers in the Big Fake News multi-corporations. What a great round of applause he got!
This of course, is also why they constantly underestimate Trump, and why he will continue to win again. Going back to the Limbaugh aphorism with this one: “accepting defeat is how you prepare yourself to win”, and nobody knows the art of the deal better than President Trump. And he proved it yet again on this latest Asia trip.
Don Surber and “President Trump’s Amazing Asia Trip” …
When President Trump made his first overseas trip in May, I wondered how he would top it. After all, he started in Saudi Arabia — home of Mecca — made the first direct flight ever from Riyadh to Israel, and then went to the Vatican, attended a NATO meeting, and finally finished with a G8 Summit.
He walked away with a commitment by NATO allies to spend more on their militaries — and the Saudis to give to a women’s fund $10 million, as well as work to defeat the Islamic State. How do you top that? Trump just did.
First, Kim Jong Un did not do squat. He cannot. His nuke program just collapsed — mysteriously — on October 10, likely killing all his scientists and technicians working on the project.
Second, Prime Minister Abe and the Trumps had a good old time. Played golf. Fed fish. Popped in on the emperor — unbowed. And oh, yeah, there was this:
Japan will impose additional sanctions on North Korea in response to the continuing threat posed by the reclusive nation’s missile and nuclear programmes, Japan’s top government spokesman said on Tuesday.
The sanctions, mentioned by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a joint news conference with U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday, will freeze the assets of nine organizations and 26 individuals, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference.
“The North Korean missile and nuclear issue is a pressing threat unseen before. Its provocative actions, in which it has ignored the severe warnings of international society, are totally unacceptable,” he said.
“President Trump told North Korea to “not underestimate us,” in a speech before the South Korea’s National Assembly Wednesday morning local time.
“Do not underestimate us. Do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty,” Mr. Trump said.
The president, who has softened his rhetoric on North Korea in recent days, urged other nations including Russia and China to sever economic ties with the rogue state. Mr. Trump, in the middle of his nearly two-week Asia trip, heads to Beijing next.
“The time for excuses is over,” Mr. Trump said. “Now is the time for strength.”
The president spent much of his speech contrasting the success of South Korea with its neighbor to the north, saying South Korea’s success threatens North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s “dark fantasy.” Mr. Trump said North Korea looks to cause trouble abroad to avoid the reality of failure at home.
Then he went to China.

Hating one’s country and being its president are in direct conflict. Zero is unquestionably the worst president America has ever had, by orders of magnitude. At least Jimmy Carter was somewhat happy to be an American, whereas Zero has shown his anti-Americanism since Day One. Example: “The Cambridge police acted stupidly .. there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”
No immediate bias in that kind of rhetoric, eh? [sarc] .. Fact is Obama will go down as one of the worst, if not the worst, presidents in American history.
Zero’s “Strategic Patience” (aka, doing nothing) completely explains a foreign policy which freed him up to focus most of his energy on destroying America itself. Shake down artists don’t build anything of lasting value, as their entire existence is devoted to division, destruction, redistribution of wealth, and total subjugation to Big Government. And Zero had it all in spades.
We the American people gave us Trump, and while not a perfect human being by any measure (who is?) he’s at least built businesses, brands and properties in a career that has spanned decades. In a sense, Zero was the “wrecking ball” that weakened America, harmed its relationships with its allies, emboldened its enemies and divided its inhabitants.
Thankfully, President Trump is now surveying the damage, clearing the lot, pouring new foundations, and getting permits to start vertical construction. While one-half of the country wants new management, it’ll be interesting to see what he can do, if only his own party would get behind the campaign promises that got him elected in the first place.
Make America Great Again!
