And just like that, we “get to the end of our (Ukraine) rope”

Is this our British Empire moment? Yes, we never technically had an empire but Pax Americana was as beneficial and far-reaching. Now we are a husk, brought low by globalism. Just as Britain never recovered from the expense of the First World War can we recover from the pandemic, the bailouts, the illegal immigration wave, endless wars, the transfer of wealth from regular citizens to billionaires?

In the two Xs I have selected below for your consideration today you can see how we are now morally and financially bankrupt. How the wealthiest nation ever known can have fallen so fast is simple to explain. We put the world and corporate interests above our own people and followed the unelected global elites who manipulate with their propaganda, great wealth and governmental infiltration.

As the second X masterfully describes, when we rejected the Trump Doctrine (which embraces the nation-state as the organizing vehicle for international cooperation and rejects the elite delusion that there is a distinct “international community” possessing a universal set of political values or producing meaningful attachment) we blew it. Trump realized that nationalism is not bigotry but is what makes us tick, makes us proud, industrious, profitable and patriotic.

In the first X you can see we can’t even keep our word to stick with an ally to the bitter end. (Admittedly, it was a dumb promise but we made it and extended the war by our involvement. It would have been over quickly without our money and materiel.)

We’re broke and can’t keep all our promises

Washington just dumped Ukraine into the waste-bin of US victim nations: “As long at it takes” is now “as long as we can” and “we are coming to the end of the rope in financing Ukraine.”

Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians died for empty US promises of “unwavering support”.

Ukraine has been wrecked and won’t recover for decades to come. Zelenskyy is finished and Russia has won. The United States, its western partners and NATO – defeated.

Why would any nation trust security guarantees by the US Govt ever again? The people of Taiwan must watch very carefully who they are counting on for their security.

What does this tell us? It’s an admission of US bankruptcy. The US Govt can no longer afford a prolonged war in Ukraine or anywhere in the world. Lies and deception (propaganda) are not enough to stay afloat. Corrupt ‘journalists’ don’t win wars or pay trillions in deficits and liabilities.

The Iranian intervention in Israel via Hamas accelerated the inevitable outcome for Ukraine. A threat of war in the Middle East with all of its dire consequences for the oil price and the fragile US economy was all it took.

The world is witnessing the rapid end of US dominance and the rise of the multipolar order. But never underestimate the arrogance of the US Govt. They may end civilization in a nuclear war rather than accept responsibility for destroying the United States from within – with blatant corruption.

Perfidious America*

The Trump Doctrine

And this is how the US threw Ukraine under the bus and delivered Putin a fat prize


THE TRUMP DOCTRINE produced the most stable and peaceful world in modern times.

At its core, the Trump Doctrine embraces the nation-state as the organizing vehicle for international cooperation. It rejects the elite delusion that there is a distinct “international community” possessing a universal set of political values or producing meaningful attachment.

It recognizes that each sovereign nation-state has a unique history and culture and that its leader is duty bound to prioritize the interests of his people.

By putting America First we increase our common ground with other countries because they too put their people first. This basic truth eluded our “experts” for generations.

The rational pursuit of national interest is the cornerstone of peaceful foreign relations. It provides the framework for seeking mutual benefit and reciprocity.

For example, Arab states have a rational self-interest in taking cooperative steps to prevent Iran from exporting bloodshed, normalize relations with Israel, and pursue mutually beneficial commerce.

The America First Doctrine does not seek to impose its way of life on others but to advance our own — just as we would expect other nations to do.

It does not seek to nation build overseas, to spread our values at gunpoint, and will never trade our jobs for some imagined foreign policy gain. Because the Trump Doctrine recognizes that economic security is national security (and that nations won’t respect you if you do not respect yourself).

It cherishes the indissolubility of national borders — knowing that borders, properly enforced, ensure domestic tranquility, decrease global tensions, and improve camaraderie between nations.

Each of these tenets is derived from the same chief principle: that the foundation of global harmony is reciprocity and cooperation between sovereign, independent, self-governing and proud nation-states.

A President’s obligation to the development of The State inform his approach to military affairs. First, to ensure the unrivaled lethality and battlefield superiority of the Armed Forces. Second, to avoid foreign crusading and entangling alliances. Third, when the security of the citizenry is threatened, to be unconstrained by “international norms” in the raw application of force.

Finally, the Trump Doctrine recognizes that national security is contingent on national pride. A nation that worships at the altar of globalism not only is incapable of articulating its own interests but incapable of being a trustworthy partner.

Would you trust a neighbor that didn’t protect his own family?

Beneath the gauzy global rhetoric all meaningful international cooperation is grounded in patriotism.

From President Trump’s landmark address to the United Nations in 2017:

“In remembering the great victory [in WWII] that led to this body’s founding, we must never forget that those heroes who fought against evil also fought for the nations that they loved.

“Patriotism led the Poles to die to save Poland, the French to fight for a free France, and the Brits to stand strong for Britain.

“Today, if we do not invest ourselves, our hearts, and our minds in our nations, if we will not build strong families, safe communities, and healthy societies for ourselves, no one can do it for us.

“We cannot wait for someone else, for faraway countries or far-off bureaucrats…We must solve our problems, to build our prosperity, to secure our futures, or we will be vulnerable to decay, domination, and defeat.

“The true question for the United Nations today, for people all over the world who hope for better lives for themselves and their children, is a basic one: Are we still patriots? Do we love our nations enough to protect their sovereignty and to take ownership of their futures? Do we revere them enough to defend their interests, preserve their cultures, and ensure a peaceful world for their citizens?”

We need the Trump Doctrine, now more than ever.
