September 21, 2017 SnyderTalk #2—Balance of Power: Ever More Isolated Trump Goes ‘Rogue’ on Iran

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says Yahweh Sabaoth. (Zechariah 4: 6)



Bloomberg—Balance of Power: Ever More Isolated Trump Goes ‘Rogue’ on Iran:

The Clinton administration once called countries that defied international norms “rogue states.” Iran’s president is throwing that epithet back at the U.S., faulting “rogue newcomers to the world of politics” who are “unfit to be heard in the UN.”

Hassan Rouhani didn’t mention Donald Trump by name during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, but the target was clear.

During three days in New York, Trump has done what U.S. enemies have sought for decades: align Iran, the European Union and other major powers against him. All oppose his desire to revisit or nix the Iran nuclear accord.

Trump’s team is hinting that’s what he plans to do, saying he’s made up his mind but won’t tell anyone yet.

Allies are apoplectic. After a lengthy closed-door meeting on the matter, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini ran out of patience. Asked if the U.S. was committed to the deal, she replied: “another question.”

Even worse for Trump, the accord is being touted as a recipe for success, with France suggesting it could be a template for dealing with North Korea’s weapons program. Rather than leaving Iran out in the cold, Trump is the one now looking isolated.

It’s true that Donald Trump is not in lockstep with other world leaders on Iran.  European leaders in particular were panting to do business with Iran.  That’s why they supported the Iran nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions on Iran.

They still want to do business with Iran because it helps them financially.  That’s not going to change anytime soon.

European leaders have another problem.  Because their countries’ indigenous birth rates are so low, they are in the unenviable position of having to import workers so that their economies can function.  They have relied on immigrants from North Africa and Arab Middle Eastern countries for the most part, but they have relied on Turkey and Iran as well to provide them with manpower.

That’s been the case for decades.  That’s why Muslim populations in European countries are large and growing.  That’s why the political situation in European countries has taken a turn toward accommodating Muslim interests, even radical Muslim interests.  That’s not likely to change anytime soon, either.  It’s a demographic problem that European political leaders must grapple with, and it won’t go away.

Despite the rapid increase in Islamist terrorist attacks in Europe, European political leaders still refuse to accept the truth.

The United States suffers from similar problems.  Donald Trump was elected president because he isn’t part of the political establishment.  He accepted the truth and promised to deal with the real problems we face.  Had he not done that, he would not have been elected.

Don’t expect President Trump to go-along to get-along.  It’s not his nature; it’s not what he promised to do; and it’s not what our country needs for him to do.  He is not in lockstep with European leaders, and he’s not going to be in lockstep with them.

That infuriates the political establishment in the U.S. and their toadies in the establishment media, Bloomberg included.  That’s why they do their best to put a negative spin on every positive move that President Trump makes.

That’s the way it is, and that’s the way it will continue to be as long as President Trump puts U.S. interests ahead of global political interests.

We should be thankful that Donald Trump is president and that he’s willing to accept the ridicule that goes along with doing what’s right.

Rouhani is lying.

Iran is not a moderate nation.  It is the largest state sponsor of global terrorism in the world today.  The goal of Iranian leaders is regional hegemony first and world domination second.

If the U.N. had existed in the 1930s, Rouhani’s speech would have been given by Adolf Hitler almost verbatim. Hitler’s claims then were eerily similar to Rouhani’s assertions yesterday.

Keep your eyes on the TRIC nations: Turkey, Russia, Iran, and China.




“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)

See “His Name is Yahweh”.
