To begin understanding what TrumpWar is, let us look at two questions regarding President Trump's relationship with John Bolton.
First of all, what kind of men are they; what do they hold in common and on what do they disagree.
Bolton is a neocon; a child of the neoconservative movement that was born in the '60s, mostly of Democrats but also of "Liberals" of any Party who opposed the pacifism of the Democrat-becoming-Marxocrat Party, and especially the Vietnam protests and the Sorosian funded, Alinskyian organized hippy-yippee movement.
Opposing pacifism, the neocons were increasingly becoming war "hawks", and some of them, but not all, were still racist. (Remember, the Democrat Party was the Party of the Confederate flag, who lost the civil war fighting to break up America and keep black slavery alive, and then gave birth to the KKK, Jim Crow and the Segregation Forever movement.)
So, the neocons were "conservative" in that they hated Communism and favored building up and using the military, but not necessarily conservative in the economic, Christian or "Social" senses of the word. They could still approve of creeping socialism and blatant immoralities such as abortion and homosexuality.
Trump is non-ideological; a simple, straight-forward, honest, apolitical, extremely industrious and extremely practical man. He now finds himself in the middle of a corrupt political Swamp owned and operated by the Marxocrat Party driven Washington Club and its thundering herd of corrupt old pols.
He is the head of the Republicrat Party by dint of having won the Presidency as the Republicrat candidate, but he is no typical Republicrat. The reason he has so much opposition in his own Party is that so many of them are on the same corrupt government tax dollar gravy train that the Marxocrats are on, and they do not want to get off of it.
They are hooked. No different than any other addicts. And they protect, conceal and cooperate with their Marxocrat and Permanent Government suppliers and guarantors of riches.
Trump was waging a new kind of war no one in Washington had ever thought of; he was waging TrumpWar, against many nations and on many fronts, all at the same time. And Bolton, the perpetual neocon hawk, preferred to use military power at the slightest provocation, to make the Communist world and the Islamic world recognize our power and bow before it. By force.
It's one thing to have a different opinion about foreign policy than the President, but it is another to say things in public that blatantly oppose the President's foreign policy while a member of the President's staff. Kim Il Jung was in the difficult position of a dictator who always feared being overthrown from within his own country if he went too far against previous set-in-stone policy.
And, while Trump was engaged in serious negotiations regarding an economic future for North Korea, Bolton went public with his opposing opinion, with an announcement that the North Korean people would benefit from following the "Libyan model", in which Comrade Obama and Madame Hillary orchestrated a revolution, and the revolutionaries tortured and murdered Muammar Gaddafi.
Blowing up the conversation between Trump and Jung.
So, Trump fired Bolton, but the damage was done. Perhaps irreparably.
Pure sour grapes, jealousy, and a superior attitude in which Bolton sees Trump perhaps being removed from office, and, somehow, himself ascending to the Presidency, where he believes he truly belongs. And then he would be free to just bomb the hell out of everyone he hates, because, in his tiny little mind, it would be the right thing to do.
So, he, or some Marxocrat deep-state Marxocrat traitor (Vindman's brother?) vetting and clearing Bolton's forthcoming book, leaked, to a fellow Marxocrat traitor in the media, the line from the book that Trump told Bolton, or someone, that he wanted aid to the Ukraine withheld until after the Biden's were investigate.
A thought crime.
Actually, someone's purely subjective personal opinion about someone else's potential thinking being a thought crime.
It shouldn't make any difference, because the aide was given, and the Biden investigation didn't happen. So there was no quid pro quo and there was no crime.
There was no act. If there was no act, there could be no crime.
And even if the aide had been withheld until the investigation did happen, it still would not have been a crime. The President was still within his legal rights to investigate the well known Marxocrat-Ukraine illegal interference with the 2016 American election favoring the Marxocrats at his expense.
So, who cares, considering that the aid was given and the investigation didn't even happen? Well, the Marocrat liars who are driving this baseless impeachment three-ring cirucus care, and so do all the Republicrat old time pols like Mitt Romney, who still want to see Trump either unseated as President, or defeated in the 2020 election. One or the other.
Because if Trump stays in office, he will drain the swamp, and they are the swamp. None of them intend to get off the gravy train.
After the Marxocrats finished presenting their case for impeachment before the Senate, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) summed the Marxocrat case up thus:
No facts; no evidence; no crime. Because the prosecution couldn't find any facts, any evidence or even any crime, they need the defense to call witnesses, find evidence and investigate further for them, in order to finally impeach their own President. The defense is supposed to do this. For the prosecution.
It's their what have you got to hide? approach to getting the Republicrats to help prosecute their own President. They all miss the point that the President doesn't have to prove his innocence, they have to prove his guilt. And, as Blumenthal stated, they have no facts and they have no evidence.
Why should any sitting Republicrat office holder go along with that plan?
Because they have skin in the game.
The longer Trump remains in the Presidency, the closer he comes to uncovering their own Republicrat involvement in impeachable corruption and criminal activity.
The Club protects them, and The Club itself may ultimately be at risk here. Thus, The Club desperately needs to get Trump out of office any way that it can be done, and the sooner the better.
All the criminals who were former heads of the FBI, the CIA, Justice, the State Department, the Vice Presidency or the Presidency are not even considered for serious investigation, let alone indictment and prosecution for any of the scandalous crimes they have been involved in. They just move through one of the revolving doors between Marxocrat government office and Marxocrat academia and the Marxocrat publishing houses and the Marxocrat news media, retaining favored membership status in the Washington Club, and working behind the scenes to suppress, override and defeat the Constitution even further.
Only Republicrats are ever punished for crimes, including being punished for crimes they didn't even commit. But no old boy's club Republicrat will ever oppose Marxocrat corruption too much, because the Marxocrats have too much incriminating evidence against them. They are captives. They are conflicted. They are compromised.
Why do so many Republicrats express opposition to subpoenaing the Bidens? Because the Bidens hold the key to the closet door that threatens to expose so many corrupt Republicrat skeletons to the same incriminating light of day.
Maybe you haven't noticed, because the Marxocraat media studiously de-emphasizes the fact, that Marxocrat scandals are fairly often publicized, but never - as in not ever - actually prosecuted. It's almost unheard of.
We believe that the Marxocrat Party still owns the Justice department, the FBI and the CIA, just as it still has "plants" in Trump's white house. We keep hearing that Barr and Durham are going to start prosecuting any minute now for what seems like an eternity.
Have you seen any indictments coming out of the Justice department?
That's funny, neither have we.
Well, maybe after the impeachment circus has run it's course; and if Trump remains in office after that, maybe after the 2020 election. I don't know about you, but I'll believe it when I see it.
Against anyone. The reason is simple; no one on earth is as fully capitalist as is the USA, no people on earth are as industrious as the American citizenry, and thus no other people on earth generate as much new wealth as the American citizenry. Adam Smith said it in his 1776 Wealth Of Nations, in an historic publication year that coincided with the signing of our Declaration and the birth of our nation:
The lowly citizen is the sole author of all new wealth.
It is the citizenry that makes any nation economically prosper.
To the extent that they are most free, as in Capitalism, they will generate new wealth.
To the extent that they are less free, as in Socialism, they will consume existing wealth.
Very simple; nothing to it.
The brilliance of this Trump strategy of displacing military conflict with economic deals is based on the fact that he is the only one who not only thought about it, but began to implement it and practice it with great success.
The whole reason traitors to the American Presidency like John Bolton, Lt. Col. Vindman and Ambassador Yovanovitch all got their panties in a bunch and joined the impeachment brigade was that President Trump was implementing his foreign policy, and not theirs. He was actually doing what he campaigned to do and what he was elected to do, and he was not being properly subservient to the long established Marxocrat "Permanent Government", comprised of themselves, and put in place to intimidate new Presidents and keep Presidents from going outside the preordained foreign policy lines.
And Trump ignored them, and wasn't intimidated by them, or even impressed by them. He didn't use their "talking points" and he began to recognize his enemies among them. He used his trusted lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to go around the corrupt Marxocrat deep-state operatives and see what was going on in Ukraine and other areas of interest, and that threw the whole "Permanent Government" into a deep blue snit.
It took away their opportunity to steer the investigation, and to steer foreign policy, and to control the Presidency itself.
Can't have that.
But Trump, the new sheriff in town, is doing it anyway, whether anyone likes it or not. As an old experienced CEO, he is bringing order to the disordered organization he is now in charge of, as he has done before. And in the process uncovering corruption in and of the organization.
Meanwhile, he is practicing TrumpWar on many fronts, engaging many heads of state and many boards and heads of major corporations on a global basis. He is making deals that are essentially economic settlements from the basis of the strongest national economy on earth.
None of the big players in this grand international game of economics can avoid doing business with and even in America. We are now too big to avoid. We are the world's biggest consumer market, and we are the world's most attractive production market, thanks to Trump programs.
Any nation and any company that wants to compete in a big way with other nations and other companies has got to be in the American market. It's becoming unavoidable. Whoever doesn't sell in America is going to lose market share. Whoever doesn't produce in America is going to lose in the production-price war to competitors.
No one can avoid us.
Even China now depends on us to keep their own economy going. And that is a huge turn-around.
Before anyone, including China, can have and keep a mighty military force standing, they have to have a good strong economy to fund it. And as they lose economic ground, they begin to lose mighty military affordability.
And today, thanks to TrumpWar, sanctions and tariffs imposed by America are stronger than anyone else's sanctions and tariffs. No sanctions or tariffs from anyone can hurt us more than ours can hurt them. We cannot lose, because we are so free, and because we produce so much wealth, as compared to anyone else on earth.
That is why Iran is now suffering and cannot much longer afford to pay all of it's surrogate warriors and proxy-wars and international terrorism. Let alone its nuclear ambitions.
And that is why China's hundred year plan to overtake America and become the world's sole super-power is, at least at the moment, in the dumpster.
Why should any Republicrat be opposed to TrumpWar? Think about it.
Marxocrats oppose TrumpWar because Marxocrats oppose America, pure and simple.
They want Iran to be powerful, dangerous, sponsoring terrorism and threatening Israel; that's what the Iran deal was all about.
They like China, and hope to see China succeed in it's hundred year plan. They oppose the very idea of America being the world's sole super-power.
And they like the idea of a resurgent USSR, rebuilding itself at the expense of its former captive nations. As proof all you have to do is look at the former administration and its relationship with Putin. Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) was always in close Marxist fellowship with Comrade Putin.
How else do you interpret what Comrade Obama did to Ukraine? He got them to de-nuke, with the promise that he would protect them from Russia if Russia ever invaded, which was, of course, a typical Marxist lie, but also a particularly treacherous one. Ukraine believed him, they disarmed, and then Comrade Putin invaded the Ukraine, took the whole prized Crimean peninsula as Russian property, and Comrade Obama reneged on his pledge and did nothing, other than perhaps quietly congratulating Comrade Putin.
But now, as part of TrumpWar, Ukraine now has all the US military weaponry and other aid that was formerly withheld by the Obamunist regime so that Comrade Putin could and would move against them.
TrumpWar, in my own purely subjective definition, is war in which military force is avoided whenever it can be avoided, in favor of economic force, which may be applied gently or brutally as the situation demands. Only an economic powerhouse such as the reborn American super-economy can guarantee consistent victory in any TrumpWar against any nation or group of nations.
Thus, TrumpWar, which is so much more benign than military war, may be waged against and with friends as well as foes. It is putting America first in all things. Very simple; nothing to it.
Why have we not been doing it? Why is everyone not doing it?
The only way other nations, whether big or small, can improve their own economies sufficient to compete with us in economics is to free their citizenry to make wealth. There is no choice in the matter. Only citizens free to do it make new wealth.
To the degree that citizens are dependent, as in Socialism, to that same degree is their nation doomed to lose, economically speaking.
To the degree that citizens are self sufficient, as in America, to that same degree is their nation certain to win, economically speaking.
President Trump is shaking us out of our doldrums as a people. He has a lot of Marxocratism to undo, and he is undoing it, and gently prodding us to take charge of our own lives and families, and improve our own condition in life, as nature calls us to always do. When he brags about the American worker and the American entrepreneur and the American fighting man, he challenges us all to start living up to his bragging.
He tells the world that America is open for business, and makes it a good place to do business, and gets businesses to move here, and encourages new ones to start up. We are the best market in which all the world may sell their goods. At the same time, we have the best labor market with which the whole world may produce its goods.
Can we live up to what Trump is telling the world about us?
In making America great again, he is making us great Americans again. It's a tough job, but someone had to do it, and Trump is doing it.
Finally, finally, someone has implemented the one practical stratagem that tolls the death knell for Socialism, citizen dependency and big, bigger and biggest all controlling governments.
Confirmed Socialists of all varieties lie when they tell you how the fact that there will always be poor people, as Jesus said (John 12:8; Matt 26:11; Mark 14:7), is somehow "unfair", and needs to be corrected, so that everyone on earth is equally rich or equally poor. And that they are the ones to correct it. It's a lie. Jesus is right.
Only a charitable people mitigate the problems of poverty, yet, Socialism opposes Christianity from which charity springs, too.
Never forget that a self-governing people absolutely must be a morally constrained and directed people, or they will lose all sense of social order, which is what the liars of Socialism really want to happen.
Trump, it looks to me, is putting the whole world on the right course.
Let it begin with me.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
