George Bush coined the term “axis of evil” in his 2002 State of the Union speech. Iran, Iraq and North Korea were introduced as nations that were sponsoring terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction. The interesting point was that most Americans were caught off guard by the inclusion of these countries as viable enemies of the United States. We had been told that the “enemy” was al Qaeda in Afghanistan.
The point is that we should have been aware of the dangers of state sponsored terrorism. The outgoing Obama administration is responsible for placing the country on the precipice of civil war in a worst case scenario or at the mercy of a series of coordinated Islamic attacks throughout the entire country in a “best” case scenario.
I want President Trump to outline reality in his first State of the Union Speech:
- I want to know the true status of the proxy war in Syria. Russia will never give up their facilities in Tartus and Latakia. Why is the United States supporting ISIS in Syria? Was Ambassador Stevens running weapons from Libya to Turkey to ISIS before his death? Most of all, I want to know if the government even knows who our “allies” are in Syria.
- I want to know the true status of the proxy war in Iraq. Iran has successfully managed to reap any benefits from the new US supported Iraqi government paid for by our treasure and soldiers’ blood. ISIS still controls Mosul as overseas’ media outlets are now reporting that the latest Mosul offensive has now failed.
- I want to know if the Muslim infiltrators will be purged from the government. Actually, I don’t want to know “if”, I want to know when. I want the new President to explain clearly that he understands the threat posed by Muslim “extremists” and that he has a plan to protect the country.
- I want to know when the Clintons will be brought to justice. This is not a matter of vengeance: we must know that this country’s two tiered justice system is over.
- I want to know the true status of our economy. I want the Bureau of Labor Statistics to be held accountable for their “statistics”. This means an accurate accounting of the labor force, the true unemployment rate, the quality of new jobs and the real loss of wages over the past twenty years.
- I want to know why Obamacare was not declared unconstitutional. If it was a tax as declared by Justice Roberts, then it is illegal since it did not originate in the House of Representatives. I want to know how Justice Roberts was coerced by the Obama administration to make this ruling.
- I want to see a plan to make the Supreme Court accountable to the people. Once these “justices” started to make “rulings” instead of “opinions”, their power has become absolute. This was never the intent of the Constitution.
- I want to see our borders secured and illegal aliens deported. We did it before and we have to do it again. The only reason for Obama’s immigration policy is to weaken our national security from within. I want the President to openly state that he will unify the country instead of diversifying us. Our strength has always been a common, united country. Obama’s objective to make us the Diversified States of America is clear: he wanted to destroy our country.
- I want to know how the President will address the national deficit of $20 trillion. If we do not cut entitlements and the federal government, the country will literally implode. I understand that a large number of people want the country to Balkanize and that path may now have become inevitable.
- I want to know that it is possible to make America great again. But I want to know the details at the State of the Union because this will require great sacrifice by the people for what will probably become a generational effort.
The above is just a wish list. I do not believe that half of America can handle the truth. I also want to point out that there are a multitude of “I’s” in this article. I guarantee that we will not have any chance of a future unless this country becomes united again. That means the “I’s” need to become “We’s”. We owe this to our children for what may become their last great hope for freedom.
