The US taxpayers are going very deeply into debt to global bankers in order to protect Europe while the EU nations make money and give social security and other things to citizens, we face bankruptcy unless we stop doing this insane spending on people who mostly despise us or want to manipulate us into confrontations with say, Russia instead of negotiations. Especially Germany who is responsible for several bad messes in Europe.
Which NATO members are falling short on military spending? – Apr. 15, 2016: over 2/3rds of NATO spending is the US citizens carrying triple what Europe and Canada spend. Much of our spending is overseas whereas they all spend their money at home, too. So it makes our massive trade deficit worse.
To make the principle work, all countries are expected to chip in. NATO’s official guidelines say member states should spend at least 2% of their GDP on defense.
So the solution to this is to force our fake allies to spend HALF of what we spend? HAHAHA. No, we must tax them to pay for us protecting them. 100%, ditto to Japan. Pay up, ‘allies’. Why can’t we be smart mercenaries? All of our ‘allies’ including Saudi Arabia, gave Hillary and her gang a billion dollars. So they can easily afford to fork it over to the US public who has been protecting all of these lay about losers.
Our freeloading allies should up the ante and they promised to do this…over ten years or more which means ‘never’. They know this is ‘never’, they imagine the US public will continue to be fooled into supporting sabre rattling in Europe with our own troops and money being used to scare Putin who will nuke Europe if they stupidly start WWIII.
By making them take care of themselves, they will think twice before being confrontational. I hope Trump is true to his word about forcing these freeloaders to pay up and pay up now, not in the distant future. Trump Expects to End US Aid to Syrian Rebels which has Saudi Arabia and Israel freaking out.
The nation is facing “a constitutional crisis… thanks to Paul Ryan,” Massie explained:
The next Speaker needs to let Congress debate whether we should be involved in all these military conflicts. We’ve got a constitutional crisis right now thanks to John Boehner and thanks to Paul Ryan, where we’re involved in military conflicts around the globe that have not been authorized by Congress, and these are not short term conflicts.
The right wing is much more antiwar than the left wing in the last eight years. Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize when he did nothing good and then he went on a rampage across the planet ended up with threatening nuclear war with Russia. That is the exact opposite of being ‘peaceful’.
While Massie noted that his own opposition to Ryan’s Speakership stems largely from procedural issues rather than specific policies, other conservative lawmakers have expressed concern that Ryan’s policy agenda, as well as his demonstrations of poor leadership throughout the election season, have made him unfit to run the Republican party in Congress.
Of course, he is toast and deservedly so. Out with the trash. As for the left wing, you can bet they will be full-antiwar now that they are totally locked out of power again. Typical, by the way. They always stop protesting when their own are being military aggressors.
For instance, Trump ran on a platform of immigration controls, whereas Ryan has been an active champion of open borders. According to Pew polling data, 92 percent of the GOP electorate oppose Ryan’s vision for expanding immigration levels and instead want to see immigration levels frozen or reduced.
Similarly, Trump ran against globalist trade policies, whereas Ryan supports the multinational trade policies backed by the Republican Party’s donor class. Ryan even worked as President Obama’s “partner” to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. According to polling data from a recent POLITICO Pro-Harvard survey, 85 percent of GOP voters disagree with Speaker Ryan’s vision on the issue of trade and believe that so-called “free trade” has lost the U.S. more jobs than it has created.
92 percent of GOP voters want what Trump said he wants. The 8 per cent that supports Ryan are the super rich/connected/Wall Street gang. Ryan cannot claim that he represents virtually and GOP voters who put the Senate, House and White House into the GOP hands. This will cause a huge underground battle for power. The Wall Street/fake GOP gang will fight Trump tooth and nail, big time.
They want their bribes, their future of retiring to work for Wall Street, to roll in dough after leaving office! To hell with the working stiff voters who put them in power. They want to make million dollar speeches overseas and at Goldman Sachs! Cleaning up this swamp of utter corruption: will Trump try? We shall see.
