    Among all the things Mr. Trump – Mr. President – will have to deal with is the insurgency of Islamic Sharia in the areas of finance, and civil law generally. This fifth column is already well under way in its march. A couple of links:

    For some years I, like millions of others, have been aware that something is wrong and/or missing from US foreign policy. That sense increased sharply in 2007 when The Fraud announced he had finished measuring for curtains in the White House and was ready to occupy it. And of course, like millions of others, I have watched in horror and sorrow as those premonitions were made incarnate deliberately as blood and destruction.

    What has been missing, I think, is a USA Grand National Strategic Objective that is reasonable (in the sense of Clausewitz’s Trinity Doctrine). What has been wrong is the impulse to manipulate rather than to detach and the impulse to contain rather than to defeat.

    So I thought to myself, what would proper USA foreign policy look like, how would it sound and implement up and out? Can one get ahead of the terror one cannot stop and conceptualize a restoration of freedom and sovereignty on the other side of it, assuming there is to be an other side of it (spoiler: there always is, God is neither dead nor kill-able)?

    Years of thinking along those lines, largely with the help of struggling with insights in posts and comments on favorite blogs, including this one, brought me to conceive what I think is already in the birth canal, so to speak: a globe-settling alignment of three brother nations: USA, India and Russia. I call it Three Brothers Doctrine. I have mentioned that once or twice before here and, with your indulgence, I would like to do so again now but adding what I think is a precise and potent formulation of the core concept:

    National sovereignty resting in citizens’ personal freedom is the prius of Three Brothers Doctrine and the Objective of USA Grand National Strategic and Tactical endeavor.

    Blessings to all who live and labor here.

    • Dear Mr Graham,
      Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
      I think you are seeing the future.
      I took a quick look at the website and I saw bits of wisdom and origional ideas that I have not seen anywhere else.
      So I am sure it will be a good use of my time to read more.

    The importance of being earnest.

    Jackie Evancho — the virtually unknown 16-year-old singer slated to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20 — is laughing all the way to the bank as her recent album sales have skyrocketed since her performance was announced.’s-album-sales-skyrocket/ar-BBxAasB?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp

    Who’s latest album is winning on Amazon:

    Jackie Evancho
    Average Customer Review: 4.6 out of 5 stars 101 customer reviews
    Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #28 Paid in Albums (See Top 100 Paid in Albums)
    #6 in MP3 Downloads

    Andre Bocelli –
    Average Customer Review: 4.3 out of 5 stars 23 customer reviews
    Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #2,385 Paid in Albums (See Top 100 Paid in Albums)
    #86 in MP3

    Andre chose poorly.

    President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.

    The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!

      I hope Trump doesn’t have and never gets the idea that the United Nations can work or that it can be fixed. Some things need to be dumped and the UN is one of them, just as its predecessor the League of Nations was. Those types of organizations only lead to globalism, which is never good. That’s why God separated the nations at the Tower of Babel. But man never learns, so we see people continue to think that globalism will work.

      We have an apartment in NYC close to the UN building. No person working in the UN is approved by the Board to live in our building, either as a tenant or as an owner. The Board says that the UN people throw too many parties and the place is too noisy.

    Knowing how the press operates you may want to keep this link handy.

    The press went nuts when George Bush replaced just eight U.S. attorneys. They chose to overlook that Bill Clinton fired all U.S. attorneys but one. If Trump decides to clean house this is a great place to start.

    A Netanyahu spokesman told Fox News that Israel has rather iron clad information from sources in both the Arab world and internationally that this was a deliberate push by the US and in fact they helped create the resolution in the first place.
    The Israeli ambassador to the US told CNN they had gathered evidence and will present it to the new administration. If they want to share it with the American people they are welcome to do it.

      Instead of doing something useful as a president in his last days, the only thing Obama does is to create ways to revenge againt people or countries he doesnt like. And he wants a legacy? To have a legacy you have to start by being a statement. Obama is not one, he is a bad imitation of Rigoletto.

        I don’t think you understand the legacy Obama wants to have. His plan all along has been to take America down a few notches to make us no better than any other nation. He has been very effective at achieving his goals. His is extremely competent at doing damage to America. And that’s the legacy he wants with his fellow marxist globalists. He is simply finishing his run with a last big effort to get more damage done before he’s gone. I’m sure he’s very proud of his legacy of damage. People who think he’s incompetent or “not getting it” don’t understand that his goals have not been what ours have, to make America its best. His goals have been to do damage and to that end he is extremely successful.

          We still have 24 days to go… a lot of criminals to pardon, and Biden strong armed Ukraine to switch their vote on Israel.


        • That’s correct. He is not incompetent; he is doing exactly as planned…taking down the US, redistributing our wealth…I think Trump finally figured it out when he said he’s been reading all of these deals and they are so horrible he finally realized that this was done on purpose to help other countries….in the meantime, we are going broke. It always frustrated me that people kept giving Obama the benefit of the doubt, heavens I don’t know why. He is a danger to all of us….and he doing as much damage as he can before being forced out of office; in fact if he could figure out a way to stay in office he would do it…hmmm…probably if he just doesn’t leave the Republicans won’t care.

      In many companies, if you in IT management and get fired you get escorted out by security and passwords get changed immediately to prevent further access.

      Why do we let past Presidents have power after elections for so long? It is not horse and buggy days where it takes a month for the new President to travel to Washington. Normally this is not a problem, but with Obama it apparently is!

      How much damage can be done in 2 and a half months? Not a smart way to do things anymore. Between elections and inaugurations the outgoing President should only hold transition powers, and nothing else.

        You are correct. Instant change if all passwords, logins and access as well as shutting down email accounts. When my husband was laid off several weeks ago he vp barely got out a mass “it was nice working with you, take care” email before it was all shut down. Only reason that they took a little longer than norm was because they laid off so many at one time. I think tithe delay between election and swearing in needs to shorten

    For all interested Treepers and their friends planning on going to the inauguration: This is an idea
    that has been running through my mind for a few weeks.

    Our opposition has demonstrated how utterly terrified they are of allowing faith to enter into the equation. This is faith, period. Non denomination, non specific to any religion. How terrified they
    are was driven home when Reuters cut the video feed when Trump received the prayer shawl from
    the black pastor a few months ago. There was to be NO valididation of a higher power being behind
    Trump’s ideas or actions on their watch.

    The idea is similar to what has occurred over the centuries in fishing villages. Prior to the fleet going
    out , a priest or pastor blesses the vessels. This is to insure that the fishermen come home safely, that no harm comes to their boats. This is to thank God and allow them to praise him as they go
    about making their living on the seas.

    Our “fleet” in this case would be the Capital Plaza, where the Inauguration is held. It would also include the Capital building where the laws are made, The Supreme Court building where they are
    interpretated. The White House, where out leader dwells. Other sites could include the various
    monuments, the FBI building, the Pentagon, perhaps the fed.

    The prayer/ blessing would include blessing the safety of those in attendance, those who’s taxes
    pay to maintain them. The blessing would be for truth,wisdom, safety. The blessing would be for
    exposure of those with evil intent that wish to harm those present, or those who these areas represent. The blessing would be that those who utter lies would be exposed. ( My own little
    punishment would be that they become hoarse when lying to harmful intent, but that one’s up to the

    Thanks to all that read this. Please mention it again in other threads ( time/ date posted and under
    which thread). If anyone here likes this idea, keep it alive. Put input in on wording. Publish addresses with an agreed on blessing, and those reading at home could also pray the blessing.
    Good things are occurring. We need to let the LORD know we are leaving it to him in guiding us
    with wisdom and faith. Blessing also to you and yours during the Holidays. Amen, and, again,

      We were at Capo Saint Vincente in Portugal years ago.

      This is such a wild extraordinary site for anyone who has visited and knows the history of the Portuguese explorers. Normally the wind has a base of at least 15 to 20 miles an hour, and then there are the gusts at 40mph, and the cliff is about 30 to 50 feet or more.

      When you visit, you can see in your mind carriages, and many young women in black to see their captains off. The small simple chapel says it all.


      • WSB says:

        This is the End of the Earth where the Portuguese went to bless the captains, crew and ships before they sailed to find the New World.


        • Your Tour Guide says:

          WSB: Thanks. Oh, to have the money to go check that out. The bucket list just got longer.
          Let’s honor their efforts by blessing our capital area of the New World.

            YTG, I can only tell you that when I visited, I could feel the stomach-aching fear, but the impassioned pride and anticipation of success these families must have weathered. Some came back, and some did not.

            Your post exhibits that same spirit we all need to weather and persevere for President Trump..

            God bless all of us who are anticiating that voyage right now. We need to keep viligent and have faith!

    Hillary with Kadafi’s $250 billion not down and out. (anyone think that Kadafi’s money simply vanished?)
    Follow the money, oil, arms, and kids. Greedy, power hungry, and evil, ‘Spirit Cooking’ is a mere glimpse. And watch out for stinger missiles smuggled in through Mexico, that can shoot down Trump’s plane. (Ivanka traveling commercial is accidental?)

      Seems George Webb is a prosecutor. Chilling. He says Trump knows about all of this. Agree that Ivanka flying commercial is no accident.
