It isn’t uncommon for former presidents to wish to continue doing things in public once they are done being POTUS. Obama has gone back to his “community organizer” days in the hopes to further destroy the country, albeit at a relatively smaller scale (at least in public).
Jimmy Carter is no different. After 4 years of being the, then, worst president the country had ever seen, Carter decided to continue to be relevant by creating The Carter Center, a way for him to continue to do things on an international level.
And now, he hopes to be sent to North Korea by President Trump to try and alleviate tensions between the two nations. And the way he’s doing it? Appear to be more conservative than he’s ever been... sort of.
In an interview with the New York Times, Carter defended the President from the media, saying: “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about. I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
And that’s not all. The New York Times interviewer asked the former president about many different issues.
On North Korea, the largest reason he’s even doing this: “I’m afraid of a situation. I don’t know what they’ll do. Because they want to save their regime. And we greatly overestimate China’s influence on North Korea. Particularly to Kim Jong-un…” He also said that he’s spoken with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, and said to the interviewer: “I told him that I was available if they ever needed me.”
On Trump’s “souring our image in the world”, according to the New York Times: “Well, I think he might be escalating it but I think that precedes Trump. The United States has been the dominant character in the whole world and now we’re not anymore. And we’re not going to be. Russia’s coming back and India and China are coming forward.”
While I commend Carter’s comments (a sentence I thought I’d never say), I have to also raise a point here. He’s not very optimistic about the country, is he? I think America can go back to being the “dominant character in the whole world”. Why? Because Trump is a lot like Reagan, who MADE America the dominant character in the whole world. When Trump says he wants to Make America Great Again, that’s what he’s talking about: American dominance in the world stage. Yes, Russia is coming back and China (not so sure about India) is growing as well. But I’m certain that we can beat them to return to being the absolute hyper power we were at the fall of the Soviet Union.
On Obama: “He made some very wonderful statements, in my opinion (when talking about the Middle East), when he first got in office, and then he reneged on that.” According to the New York Times, Carter “complained that Obama ‘refused’ to talk to North Korea more…”
On “Russian collusion” in the election: “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes.”
On Confederate statues: “That’s a hard one for me. My great-grandfather was at Gettysburg on the Southern side and his two brothers were with him in the Sumter artillery… I never have looked on the carvings on Stone Mountain or the statues as being racist in their intent. But I can understand African-Americans’ aversion to them, and I sympathize with them. But I don’t have any objection to them being labeled with explanatory labels or that sort of thing.”
On NFL players kneeling: “I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate. I would rather see all the players stand during the American anthem.”
On Trump “deepening racial divisions”, according to the New York Times: “Yes, I think he is exacerbating it. But maybe not deliberately.”
While Carter isn’t full-on defending Trump on everything (such as the bogus claim that he’s deepening racial divisions, something Obama is the biggest culprit for), he’s still trying to make himself out to be a bit more likable to Trump, while not completely abandoning his Leftist ways.
However, there are some problems with that. First, HE ALREADY TRIED THE NORTH KOREA THING! Not in recent times, mind you. No, he tried it in 1994. You know, the year the U.S. made a deal with the Norks that eventually led to North Korea building nukes? Yeah, that one. He’s already royally screwed up one deal with the communist nation, why would we send him again? We’d be better off selling Dennis Rodman to Little Rocket Man in exchange for peace. (Yes, I’m aware Rodman is black. No, this isn’t a race thing. Relax, potential liberal reader if there are any).
Secondly, it’s painfully obvious that he’s just selling himself to the President. While he may truly believe the things he said about the way the media treats Trump and that NFL players should stand and look to protest another way, his end-goal is clear: do something somewhat relevant this millennium. Ok, maybe that’s a bit harsh, but it’s the truth. The only reason he did this interview is so that Trump would consider sending him to North Korea for peace talks simply because he doesn’t hate Trump as much as everyone else.
Lastly, negotiations aren’t going anywhere. Little Rocket Man hasn’t fired a nuke yet because 1), they’re absolutely screwed if they dare do anything of the sort and 2) they don’t want to tick off China. China has said that if North Korea attacks first and the U.S. retaliates, they will not interfere AKA they will allow North Korea to be utterly destroyed. But China doesn’t want that. If North Korea falls, especially to the U.S., it means one less communist state in the world, and one less communist puppet in the world.
So with all that, there’s absolutely no reason for Trump to send Carter to North Korea. Not to mention that Carter could be captured, made a political prisoner, and be forced to reveal sensitive info about the country. It’s safer for everyone, including Carter, if Trump denies Carter’s request.
Not to mention that the interview was an obvious façade. Like I said, the point of the interview was not to get on Trump’s good side, but to try to go to North Korea, try to fix that hot mess and be relevant at least once in the last 20 years - he just has to actually make the effort to be liked by Trump. Earlier I said that he may truly believe the things he’s saying, but it’s just as possible that he DOESN’T believe those things. He’s a Leftist and a life-long member of the Establishment. I don’t trust those snakes. While his intentions may not be malevolent, I still wouldn’t trust Carter no matter what he says.

What is one of the campaign promises/slogans Trump made during the campaign trail? One was to Make America Great Again, and he’s working on that (sadly, without his OWN Party). Another was to Make America Safe Again, and he’s also working on that, with the travel ban, tougher military and the mere PROMISE of a Wall delivering results. And the one to talk about here: Make America Proud Again.
And he did just that on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 at the U.N. General Assembly. In what one Fox News contributor called “the best speech of the Trump presidency”, the POTUS did something the U.N. has never seen before: the President of the United States of America prioritized America, pointed out the unacceptable behavior of rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea, and bashed socialist countries like Venezuela, making an example of them of what happens when socialism is the ruler of a country.
But he didn’t stop there. No, he also went after the disastrous Iran Nuke deal his predecessor made with the Islamic nation, saying: “The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me.”
Now, this is the sort of thing we’ve heard often during the campaign trail. He would often call the deal a terrible deal and an embarrassment. But this is another thing entirely. His audience isn’t ticked off Americans wanting their country back. His audience were members of a globalist cause that frankly couldn’t care less about the benefit and well-being of the U.S. They only care for as long as they can steal our money in terrible Climate Change deals.
His audience were people that never would’ve expected someone to be so bold with them. Someone who had the GUTS to tell them that this one particular nation is screwing the U.S. over and looking to build weapons of mass destruction. But do you know what happened? Cheers and applause.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail: “’We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles. And we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program,’ Trump said, drawing applause from the leaders of more than 180 nations in the room.”
Would you look at that? Trump bashes and attacks the nuke deal, calling it for what it is, and the people in that room representing their own countries actually liked what he said and sided with him on that. Does that sound like something Obama did? Or something Clinton would’ve done?
Obama just ignored our allies’ cries to not side with the radical Iran and Hillary would’ve done more of the same. Trump, on the other hand, acknowledges, points out and bashes how terrible that deal is and decides to back up America’s allies instead of ignoring them and wants to scrap the whole deal. And this, he said IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES! It’s one thing to say this to Americans who support the President and want their country back. But it’s an entirely different thing to say this to people that are either neutral with Iran or somewhat allied with Iran.
Most countries are not in direct danger from a Nuclear Iran. Israel is. America is. But most countries don’t have much to worry about with Iran, since they’re not in Iran’s sights. So to say this to this kind of crowd really tells you Trump has the guts to point out the evils of this world and not be a part of the evils of this world.
And perhaps the BIGGEST AND GUTSIEST thing he said during the assembly: “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
HOLY GOD ALL-MIGHTY! He just doubled-down on his plans for North Korea! Now, he didn’t flat-out declare war on North Korea, as Leftists will likely misconstrue what he said. But he is certainly willing to completely destroy that nation if the United States feels as though it needs to defend itself or its allies from the Norks. Later on, he said: “The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully, this will not be necessary.”
He hopes things don’t come down to the United States taking action, but he assures THE WHOLE WORLD that we are ready, willing and able to do just that.
Now, why do I say that this is the biggest and gutsiest thing he said? Well, have you ever heard another United States President strictly warn another country that they will be destroyed if they continue with their shenanigans in front of the U.N. General Assembly? No other President has had either the guts or necessity to do that. Obama certainly didn’t have the guts, and Bush didn’t really have the necessity. So for this POTUS to warn another country that they will be destroyed if the need arises is HUGE!
Yet another reason why I know Trump was the right man for the job. And yet another promise fulfilled from his campaign trail. I certainly know that I’m proud of what Trump said. I certainly know that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu is proud of what Trump said. And I certainly know that millions of Trump’s supporters are proud of what Trump said.
“’For I know the plans I have for you’, declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”

Most certainly not! Generally speaking, we would want to avoid having any sort of war with any nation in the world. War rarely is necessary and always brings largely unnecessary death and destruction. The only time war is a necessity is when there’s a clear evil threat to the world and good people leading good and powerful countries should do their best to save the world from the forces of evil.
But with North Korea threatening to strike Guam, a U.S. territory, we might be forced into a confrontation in the near future. Like I said in the previous article, we could convince China to convince Kim Jong Un’s generals to take out the radical leader to avoid the generals' ultimate deaths. So war doesn’t even have to happen in this scenario. All that would have to happen is Kim Jong Un’s assassination by the Chinese and replacement with a Chinese puppet - and that's assuming Kim Jong Un doesn't come to his senses first.
Should that not happen and Kim Jong Un strikes, as he promised, then we would obviously be forced to retaliate and engage in war with North Korea. Trump isn’t like Obama. He’s not gonna beg Kim Jong Un to cut it out. You can shove Obama around and he won’t do anything. But if you try to shove Trump around, you won’t get a shove back. You get a punch to the nose.
Throughout the campaign, Trump faced opponents that wanted to take him down. When those opponents would attack him, he’d attack back harder. The same can be said when given a threat such as the one Kim is giving. If North Korea does launch a missile, even if it’s not a nuke, at Guam, we will hit them back… harder.
And we’re not afraid to go to war with them. Why? No one will back up North Korea. China has always been a friend to North Korea (of course they are, they’re both communist states that massacre whoever they want), but even they know that Kim Jong Un is a lunatic. If North Korea goes to war with the U.S. and China gets involved, the U.S. will cease all trade with China, which will really hurt their economy. The Chinese have a good thing going with us in the market, they won’t sacrifice that just to back up the crazy chubby guy.
And Russia really has no reason to get itself involved in this. They’re still recovering from the dissolution of the Soviet Union. And while they are a strong military force, I highly doubt they would start World War III with us to help a nation that could be destroyed so insanely easy. So North Korea really has no allies in this… other than maybe radical Muslims. But they’re already trying to destroy us and kill us, not to mention ISIS has been heavily debilitated since the recent destruction of the Mosul caliphate, so they’re in no position to back up the Norks.
So let’s focus on the head to head match-up between the U.S. and North Korea. Like I said in the previous article, it’d be like a high school basketball team facing the Golden State Warriors or a high school football team facing the Patriots. North Korea, on their own, can’t possibly stand up against the U.S.
Let’s look at some numbers. According to Wikipedia, the number of active personnel in the United States military is 1.2 million people (ranked 3rd). North Korea’s number of active personnel is 1.1 million (ranked 4th). They obviously have a lot of people in their military (but considering it’s either that or live in utter destitution, it makes sense that so many people would want to 'serve'). So the numbers are fairly even. In the event of a war, those numbers would obviously go up.
But while having people fighting is necessary, you also have to have the ability to pay for them and the weapons they use. The U.S. military budget is about $600 Billion, with 3.3% of the country’s GDP being used to fund that budget. Of course, this was during the Obama years. Now that Trump is President, I imagine that number will go up. Not to mention the fact that, during the event of a war, that number will DEFINITELY go up.
So we can clearly see that the United States is very rich and doesn’t eat up much of its GDP in its military… Then there’s North Korea. North Korea’s budget is roughly $10 Billion, with it taking up roughly 25% of the country’s GDP. So they use up a quarter of their country’s wealth and they have a budget that's only 1.7% of America's budget. Now, we’ve known for a long time that they were poor, but looking at the numbers… HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THEY’RE POOR!
So as you can see, North Korea most certainly loses the war of finances. In a normal war, they’d easily get destroyed. In a nuclear war, same thing. The United States has a total area of 3.7 million square miles. North Korea has a total area of 46,540 square miles. Not that we would, but if we were to launch nukes at North Korea, given that we most certainly have the weaponry and technology to do that, they’d easily be wiped out. North Korea could easily stop existing in less than a day. But since the U.S. is far bigger, it’d take A LOT of nukes to completely wipe the continental U.S. off the face of the Earth. North Korea doesn’t have that kind of power.
The reason we’re even talking about this is because JUST NOW they’re able to reach us. Knowing that, I can’t imagine North Korea has a lot of missiles, at the moment, that can reach us. Meanwhile, we have all the power in the world to wipe them out. Again, we won’t be doing that. We don’t want to kill innocent civilians. All we want to do is resolve this issue diplomatically, but if not possible, we would resolve it with the destruction of the North Korean government and military. We won’t use nukes on North Korea, knowing the human cost that would ensue.
Even Mattis agrees with the President and myself. In an interview with CBN, Mattis said: “The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.” He knows we don't want to attack North Korean civilians, but he doesn’t want Kim Jong Un to think that we won't. He wants Kim to think we’ll go to any extent to ensure the safety of the world, even at the cost of an entire nation and its people. But the U.S., being the good guys, won’t simply attack civilian targets unless it's absolutely necessary.
Even the attacks on Japan during World War II were to destroy Japanese military installations and workshops or factories. We even WARNED Japanese civilians in targeted cities with the LeMay leaflets. The leaflets were dropped on dozens of Japanese cities during 1945 to warn civilians to evacuate the cities before they are destroyed. Granted, the leaflets didn’t mention atomic bombs, but that would be a given. YOU DON’T REVEAL YOUR MOST POWERFUL WEAPONS TO YOUR ENEMIES! We used atomic bombs to get the Japanese to surrender. And we were prepared to attack more than just Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We were prepared to destroy far many more cities if the Japs didn’t surrender. And thank God they did.
So we won’t be using nukes on the entirety of North Korea unless we have to. We likely won’t even launch a single one if unprovoked. We will, however, ensure Kim Jong Un either comes to his senses or is overthrown - a regime change that would lead to a unified Korea. The last time I checked, the Chinese didn't want a unified Korea...so they better step up to the plate.

An article written on mcclatchydc.com says that “America no longer sees Kim Jong Un as a joke.” The reasons they give is the fact that North Korea says they have miniaturized nuclear warheads and is capable of striking the U.S.
After the Washington Post reported that a U.S. intelligence assessment concluded that fact, the President decided to respond with a position of power by saying that if North Korea’s threats don’t stop, they “will be met with the fire and fury (of the United States) like the world has never seen.” Of course, that infuriated the Left because he’s not employing Obama’s tactic of begging North Korea to “please not do that” like a kid being picked on in school.
In the article on mcclatchydc.com, they speak of Kim’s accomplishments since taking power after his father’s death in 2011. One of which is saying that the little chubby dictator has “improved North Korea’s economy, in spite of international sanctions.” Oh, so families can now afford TWO pieces of bread for dinner now? Fantastic! But seriously, the Left will write about how NORTH KOREA’S economy has improved under Kim but not about how Trump has CREATED 1 MILLION JOBS SINCE TAKING OFFICE AND HELPED THE DOW JONES BREAK RECORDS!
Later on in the article, they write about how U.S. Pacific Forces Commander Admiral Harry Harris Jr. testified before Congress and said that “North Korea conducted about 60 ballistic missile tests in recent years, and it was the only country to have tested devices this century.” May I point out the fact that 1) they are a small communist country and are so insanely poor that ONLY NOW they’ve been able to test nuclear weapons and 2) the only reason they even have nukes as of this moment is because BILL CLINTON LET THEM HAVE NUKES!
Back in 1994, President Bill Clinton and former President Jimmy Carter made a deal with North Korea in which they would receive “two new nuclear reactors and $5 Billion in aid in return for a promise to quit seeking nukes.”, according to the New York Post. That’s quite possibly the most expensive pinky promise ever. $5 Billion and two new reactors for the promise of North Korea to not seek building nukes? And look where we are today.
And according to the New York Post, “… in 2002, the North Koreans ‘fessed up’: they’d begun violating the accord on Day One. Four years later, Pyongyang detonated its first nuke.” So North Korea broke that pinky promise immediately and STILL GOT A BUNCH OF MONEY AND TWO REACTORS TO BUILD NUKES!
And Obama did something similar with Iran by giving them $150 billion “to build bridges and repair roads.” What a load of b.s. Iran is on the way to becoming a nuclear power that vows to destroy Israel and America. North Korea is ALREADY threatening the U.S. (at least in Guam) and has always threatened South Korea as well. And you can thank Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama for allowing insane and evil nations to nuke up.
Returning to the mcclatchydc.com article, they go on to mention that some members of Congress have (unsurprisingly) criticized Trump for his “fire and fury” comments. John McCain, the 2008 presidential election loser and prime candidate for the “Benedict Arnold Traitor of the Year” award, said “you’ve got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do… That kind of rhetoric, I’m not sure how it helps.” And California Senator Dianne Feinstein commented: “Isolating the North Koreans has not halted their pursuit of nuclear weapons. And President Trump is not helping the situation with his bombastic comments.”
Really, TRUMP’S comments are bombastic? His comments carry no meaning? He isn’t willing to back up what he says? How many times have we heard Obama place a “red line” on a foreign country and done a darn when they crossed that line? OBAMA’S ENTIRE FOREIGN POLICY LEGACY WAS BOMBASTIC! HE NEVER MEANT ANYTHING HE EVER SAID TO ANY FOREIGN COUNTRY THAT TESTED HIM!
At what point exactly, during the campaign trail, did Donald Trump look like he isn’t willing to back up what he says, Mr. McCain? At what point did he seem like Trump is all bark but no bite? When he ordered to strike Syria for their use of chemical weapons on their own people? When he appointed “Mad Dog” Gen. Mattis to Secretary of Defense the day of his inauguration? When Trump says that he’s willing to punish a country like North Korea for their threats, he’s going to do it.
And the funny thing about this? People might actually think we’ll go to nuclear war with North Korea and that North Korea actually has a chance to win. Of course North Korea doesn't stand a chance - it doesn’t have the military might to face the U.S. It’d be like a high school basketball team facing the Golden State Warriors. A high school football team facing the New England Patriots. Point is: North Korea, with all their threats, is nothing compared to the strength and might of the United States military force. Not just because we’re far richer, more technologically advanced and have a bigger number of soldiers, but also because we have God on our side.
North Koreans see Kim Jong Un as their god. That’s because that’s all they’ve ever known. To them, their country’s leader is their god. Christ is not welcomed in North Korea. But Kim Jong Un is nothing compared to Trump, LET ALONE THE ALL-MIGHTY KING OF KINGS AND GOD OF GODS!
The Lord has not blessed North Korea up to this point - not even with China on its side. He’s certainly not gonna bless them now. And He won’t bless them EVER.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

A couple of weeks ago, while we were striking a Syrian air base, the president met with the Chinese president. I won’t go into the details of the meeting, but there are some key takeaways that we see a couple of weeks after the meeting.
The main one being that China in essence ordered North Korea not to test another one of their long range missiles. And the Norks obeyed like good little dogs. But it beckons the question, why, after all this time, did China tell North Korea to not test another one of their missiles?
The answer is simple: the Chinese respect our new president. Going into the meeting, Trump had already ordered the strike on Assad’s air base in Syria in retaliation to his chemical attack on his own people. And coming out of the meeting, Trump said that he believes “lots of very potentially bad problems will go away.”, leading us to believe Trump was able to make tremendous progress with the Chinese government. During the meeting, Trump highlighted the U.S.’s position of strength “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.” Trump said in an interview with the Financial Times after the meeting.
During the meeting, Trump showed that he’s not Obama, and that he’s someone that they can’t take lightly, without showing himself to be an enemy to them. He displayed strength and leadership, as evidenced by the fact that the Chinese president essentially turned on Kim Jong-un and told him to not test another missile. This means the Chinese president views Trump with far more respect than he did Obama. Under Obama, the Chinese president would never have told the Norks to cool it with their missiles.
Now, you may recall that North Korea did indeed launch a missile that pathetically blew up mere seconds after launch. While that part is true, that was not the test Kim Jong-un had planned. That launch was simply in celebration of North Korea’s founding. In essence, it was the world’s biggest and most expensive firecracker.
But reading the headline once again, what does this have to do with the Left? EVERYTHING! It has everything to do with them! Because, first of all, the Chinese president never showed this kind of respect towards Obama. Secondly, Obama never came into a meeting in a position of strength. Obama was the king of belittling the U.S, particularly with foreign nations. Trump is the precise OPPOSITE of Obama. And the fact that the Chinese president has so much respect for Trump that he told one of China’s closest allies to back off a little says a lot.
What this tells you about Trump is that he’s no ordinary president, as we knew he wouldn’t be. I can only think of one other president that would be capable of doing that with China and that’s Reagan. We all know that President Reagan was far more of a patriot than many other presidents we’ve had in recent history. Other presidents would be advised to not come in in a position of strength, because that might give off the wrong impression, one that says we’re better than them, stronger than them. But these two presidents knew and know better.
But the impression the Chinese president got is that the era of Obama’s wimpy and soft policies with no backlash or military action is over. China saw that Syria pushed Obama’s “red line” multiple times with no consequence. And they saw Syria try it again during Trump’s time and were given one hell of a warning: Obama’s gone now, back off. Coincidentally, that seems to be the message China sent to the North Koreans.
And if the Chinese president respects Trump so much, what does this tell the Left? The Left sees China as America’s goal. China is a utopia for them. It’s what every country should strive for: the elites rule and everyone is equal. No one’s outstanding or special. No one’s better than anyone else. Everyone is the same. But if the leader of this utopia respects the very being the Left considers to be the definition of manure, what does it mean for them? Likely, they’ll try to deny it, saying something along the lines of “China is just being polite because they’re not like that disgusting pig named Trump.” Or “The only reason China did that is to thank Obama for his magnificent 8 years in office.” Or some other stupid nonsensical excuse like that. We'll see what they say of this, if anything at all.
Ultimately, it seems there was someone else in that meeting too. He wasn’t American or Chinese, but from another place entirely. God attended that meeting and directed Trump’s steps. He was and is with Trump. God helped Trump win the White House so that he may be able to accomplish these very things.
