Former Ambassador John Bolton: Trump Needs to Renegotiate ‘One China’ Policy

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton on Friday urged President Donald Trump to upend four decades of precedent by renegotiating the "One China" policy that denies Taiwan's sovereignty.

Bolton told the Washington Free Beacon in an exclusive interview that the One China policy, which was established during President Richard Nixon's visit to China in 1972, is "ahistorical" and fails to reflect the current reality in East Asia, where natives of Taiwan overwhelmingly identify as "Taiwanese" rather than "Chinese."

"The One China policy is inherently ambiguous," Bolton said. "China thinks it means one thing, we think it means another."

Former Danish Prime Minister Fogh Rasmussen: Why America Must Lead

 

There is some serious chaos brewing abroad–and only America can stop it.

That's what former Danish prime minister and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen argues in PragerU's latest video, pointing out, "Only America has the diplomatic reach, the financial resources, and the firepower to lead the free world against the autocrats, rogue states and terrorists that are trying to overwhelm it."

Rasmussen noted that prior to America's as status as a superpower, there were two world wars that destroyed the lives of millions of people. But since World War II, when America was cemented as the world's greatest superpower, there has been "relative peace."

The Same Old Stand?

This essay was published in Why the South Will Survive: Fifteen Southerners Look at Their Region a Half Century after I’ll Take My Stand, edited by Clyde Wilson, 1981.

When the Southern Agrarians took their stand, they did it stoutly, on two feet. Some emphasized the “Southern,” others the “Agrarian,” but fifty years ago it seemed that the two loyalties, to the South and to rural life, could (indeed, pretty well had to) go together.

Today that juxtaposition is less self-evidently sensible. If ever a society can be said to have repudiated agrarianism, the South, to all appearances, has done so. Two-thirds of all Southerners now are “urban” by Census Bureau standards; of the rural one-third, only a fraction are employed in agriculture; and of those a good many are proprietors or hands in “agribusiness”—an expression that some of the Agrarians blessedly did not live to encounter.

Syrian priest: 'It is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to Vladimir Putin'

Putin

A few years ago, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who then was Russia’s ambassador to NATO, warned that a new influence had appeared that was becoming a major threat to large segments of the world, namely, Asia, Europe and America.

“There is a new civilization emerging in the Third World that thinks that the white, Northern Hemisphere has always oppressed it and must therefore fall at its feet now. … If the northern civilization wants to protect itself, it must be united: America, the European Union and Russia. If they are not together, they will be defeated one by one,” he said.

He was primarily referring to radical Islam. And America, with its Christian foundation, Europe, with its own Judeo-Christian heritage, and even Russia, with its historic Russian Orthodox Christian church, would appear to have reason to join ranks.

So why would the American political elite be so averse to pursuing better relations with Russia, as President Donald Trump has suggested?

 Marine Le Pen in 2012

MARINE Le Pen branded the European Union (EU) a “totalitarian institution” and pledged to free a “weakened” France from the crippling burden of EU bureaucracy.
The Front National leader has laid out her foreign policy vision for France with plans to reverse EU bureaucracy which has left France “enfeebled” and “cut off” form the world.

Speaking in Paris yesterday, she said: “It’s time for us to put an end to this bureaucratic monster that is the European Union. European countries are bound together in many ways, and this mandatory coalition is destroying individual member states.”

The far-right chief also vowed not to allow her country be “diminished, isolated, and wholly dependent on the EU”.

The Story No One Else Will Tell

 Lies of Omission

This nation is at a crossroads. There are many indications that there is a significant push by Marxists to step out of the shadows and claim title to our institutions, pushing the idea of capitalism out of the public square the same way they pushed God out of the schools. Swirling in the air of social media is the idea that to resist capitalism is to resist all of the ills of society, as if capitalism caused them. Unfortunately, this shows a determined lack of intelligence, reinforced by Marxist professors.

Here's what I know: no one is telling the story, no one is standing up for the America we should have. Republicans use the Constitution to get elected to continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. Democrats want to replace the electorate in order to get the election results they want to in turn continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. None of them will ever have a reason to look backward at individual freedom as anything other than a threat to their power.

We elected Donald Trump, because he was neither of them and we all knew that.

Union or Else

 

In 1864, General William T. Sherman wrote to a fellow Union officer that the “false political doctrine that any and every people have a right to self-government” was the cause of the war that had been raging in America since 1861. The general was forgetting, or ignoring, that this very “doctrine” had led the American colonists to declare their independence from Great Britain in the previous century.

In the same letter, Sherman referred to state’s rights, freedom of conscience, and freedom of the press as “nonsense” and “trash.”

Devoted to the union and a powerful central government, he was willing to wage total war against fellow Americans who were fighting for independence and self-determination, and in the winter of 1865, many of the men who followed General Sherman cooperated with him in his intention to “smash South Carolina all to pieces” with malevolent glee. One South Carolina gentleman, a resident of Fairfield District, when asked if he had been visited by “rough men” (meaning Sherman’s soldiers), answered that he had been visited by “a legion of devils, not by men.”

After the city of Columbia, South Carolina, was sacked and burned by Sherman’s troops on February 17, 1865, one of its citizens, J. J. McCarter, recorded the following observation in his journal:
