trump45“This American carnage stops right here and now!” Donald Trump, Inaugural Address, 1/20/17

Mr. Trump suggested that it would be a “new national pride” that would “heal our divisions.”

worldorderIn 1917, Woodrow Wilson supported the Russian Revolution and brought the U.S. into the Great War (WWI), in support of a ‘new world order.’ Today, Obama officials are accusing Russian president Putin of being a threat to the new world order. In his final press conference President Obama said the sanctions on Russia were due to Russia violating Ukraine’s sovereignty by annexing Crimea.

Actually it was the U.S. that violated Ukraine’s sovereignty by sponsoring the February 2014 coup that removed the democratically elected Victor Yanukovych from office. When the US-backed replacement government took over they said they would not be paying Russia the billions of dollars that Ukraine owed Russia — moving Russia to then take Crimea as collateral.

It was the U.S. that violated Syria’s sovereignty by calling for a “regime change” and supporting the rebels, seeking to remove the legitimate Assad government. In Ukraine and Syria the U.S. has acted in a murderous way while Russia has sought to preserve/protect order and society.

americanaweek3americanaweekMr. Trump will take over as president of a broken, some would say failed, United States — failed because the ‘will of the people’ has for years failed to deliver truthful leaders. Instead, American leadership has systematically violated natural law, the U.S. Constitution and international law, destroying other countries and delegitimizing themselves in the process.

People should bear in mind that the U.S. exists today only because others allow her to exist.

Russian intervention in the recent election (to help inform Americans) should be seen as a humanitarian intervention, to help save a country that has lost its way. Trump might be the last chance the country has to exist as a nation. Mr Lewis et al ought to support him.
