Trump Stands Up to Rogue States, Slows US Decline

Dozens of alleged goals leading to the takeover of the United States have been ticked off one-by-one since a U.S. congressman announced them more than 50 years ago. The first two were well on their way to fruition until the current administration threw the brakes on.

Just ahead of his visit to South Korea, President Donald Trump asked Congress for $4 billion to bolster a missile defense system to check any future aggression coming from their neighbor to the north.

This marked Trump’s latest effort to keep the pressure on North Korea and give it yet another "come to Jesus moment"  — one day before "The Art of the Deal" author appeared to make an abrupt about face.

He invited the dictatorship to "come to the table" and "make a deal."

But accompanying his apparent posture change was the president’s unspoken threat of military response if Pyongyang didn’t play nice. Three U.S. carrier battle groups — not seen in a single area for 10 years — are now positioned in the Western Pacific.

It sounds akin to negotiating with a pen in one hand and a pistol, pointed at the other fellow’s head, in the other, reminiscent of a Mario Puzo novel’s "offer that can’t be refused" scene.

In this case, any such agreement must include the denuclearization of North Korea. He made that clear when addressing the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea Wednesday. Trump’s address left no room for misinterpretation. The president said, "The regime has interpreted America’s past restraint as weakness." Mr. Trump added, "Do not underestimate us, and do not try us."

Speaking directly to the regime’s leader, Kim Jong Un, he said, "The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer — they are putting your regime in great danger."

But whether the president realized it or not, his actions with respect to North Korea were a huge speed bump to the fulfillment of several goals the Communist Party purportedly had for the United States.

On Jan. 10, 1963, then-Rep. Albert S. Herlong Jr., a Florida Democrat, entered into the Congressional Record 45 goals leading to the Communist takeover of the United States. The mere mention of a Communist takeover sounds quaint today — especially since the fall of the Soviet Union.

However, many of them have already come to pass, providing a road map of the direction in which the country has been heading for at least the last half-century. The first two were well on their way to completion until Trump became the new sheriff. They are:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

U.S. leaders have been engaged in a program off appeasement with the world’s bullies — most notably North Korea and Iran — for decades.

Former President Bill Clinton called his administration’s 1994 agreement with North Korea "a good deal for the United States," one in which the dictatorship would "freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program."

Appeasement didn’t work then — and it didn’t work 21 years later for former President Barack Obama, this time negotiating another nuclear deal with Iran. Before the ink was dry on that one, the Islamic Republic went back to chanting "Death to America" and thumbing its nose at the U.S.— this time as much as $33.6 billion in cash richer.

Additional goals Herlong placed into the Congressional Record include:

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

It may be too late to turn the clock back on these, but other goals only came into play since Trump became president, and will be addressed next week in a second article.

Appeasement didn’t work in the past, and it didn’t for Barack Obama. Whether President Trump's actions with respect to North Korea were a huge speed bump to the fulfillment of several goals the Communist Party purportedly had for the United States.
