Trump: The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony

Donald Trump speaking on foreign policy in his address to the Center for the National Interest in Washington DC on Wednesday.

IN HIS FOREIGN POLICY SPEECH today, Donald Trump made it clear that he really means it when he says he wants to make America great again. Though there was nothing scary in his speech, unless you are a globalist (which many are), the real jewel hidden in his speech came near the end:

We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down.

And then he said: "And under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs."

Beautiful stuff, and I'm certain he means it. Of course, he also said this in the beginning:

In the 1940s we saved the world. The greatest generation beat back the Nazis and Japanese imperialists. Then we saved the world again. This time, from totalitarianism and communism.

I'm not sure he really believes this, but he needs to say it in order to be President of the United States. This is the first time I've ever heard him use the word "Nazi" and I don't think it's a word that's common in his vocabulary. He does have a misunderstanding of America's role in the 1940's but then I think what he was getting at is that America was really strong then, and he wants to become strong again.

In fact, the main reason I would never vote for Ted Cruz is that he believes in and practices total obsequiousness to Israel. It's to such a degree that he practically thinks the US exists to serve Israel, just like the Federal Republic of Germany. All Trump said is: "President Obama has not been a friend to Israel." I think it's important to remind Mr. Trump that Israel has not been a friend to us! There is the U.S.S. Liberty bombing with the murder of our servicemen; the spying, for example the Jonathan Pollard affair; the effort to destabilize the middle east and get US to fight the wars. This is not friendship and President Trump will eventually (hopefully) have to acknowledge it.

He did say in the speech:

"... our allies are not paying their fair share, and I’ve been talking about this recently a lot. Our allies must contribute toward their financial, political, and human costs, have to do it, of our tremendous security burden. But many of them are simply not doing so."

It's a certainty that Israel doesn't do so, but he never mentions Israel when he points to Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Germany. This cost-conscious President will surely need to be reminded about Israel's cost to us again and again, even if it is Congress who votes all those billions for Israel.

But I am thrilled that he wants to preserve the nation-state, which means he recognizes nationalities, and the different cultures that go along with them as having to be protected from international corporations and the agenda of the globalist elites. Build that wall!

It's great thatTrump is starting a nationalist backlash, but there is a long way to go.  Sadly Americans are definitely more brainwashed than Europeans.  Thank God I live in Germany where no one of my acquaintance talks about Jesus and all the crap of Jew worshiping which is common among the Christian sheeple in America.  Hail victory!

Deutsche Welle asked a number of globalist apparachniks what they thought of Donald Trump's foreign policy speech on Wednesday. These are some answers they gave:

"I came away, I must confess, with a vague sense of nausea," said Federiga Bindi, who holds the Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Integration at the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

"I heard the American version of Le Pen, Orban and other European populists who want to make us believe that working together through pooling sovereignty is the source of all evil," said Josef Janning, head of the Berlin office of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

"[Trump's speech] represents one of the darkest moments in American populism as it applies to international affairs," said Vincent Michelot, a political science professor at Sciences Po University in Lyon. He added: "The speech also represents a confirmation that barring some catastrophic event in the summer or early fall, the next president of the United States will be a woman,."

"This speech should make us more, not less, concerned about what a President Trump's foreign policy would look like," said Matthew Kroenig, a national security scholar at Georgetown University and a foreign policy advisor for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign.

There is also grumbling about Trump's use of the term America First. 
 
I heard him say America First already weeks ago in campaign speeches.
 
It's a good time to trot out Buchanan's thesis that the USA did not need to be involved in WWII.

Trump called Buchanan some nasty names 16 years ago, but his whole presidential campaign has been a vindication of Buchanan's positions. Trump must be seeing differently now.

I hope Trump has read Buchanan's book, "The Unnecessary War" as you aluded to.  It would really make me feel good to know he had read that.

I also hope it's true that he had a book of Hitler's speeches on or in his bedside table ... but he has denied that.
