“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen. He (Kim Jong Un) has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.” – President Donald J. Trump

Any legislation regarding the first-use of nuclear weapons by the United States must be bipartisan and apply to all current and future U.S. presidents, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told a news conference on Thursday.
“I put this in the category of urgent. We take an oath to protect and defend,” she said.
Pelosi said an “ancient” law, dating back to 1946, currently authorizes the president of the United States to exercise the first use of nuclear weapons. “It was in a different world, and now I think it is necessary for us to address it,” she said of the 1946 law.
“There are all kinds of proposals out there, one saying — declaring the United States of America will not engage in first use of a nuclear weapon. I like that one best.”
Pelosi said other proposals would require the president to get the advice of “some people in his cabinet,” to be determined, before launching a nuclear first strike.
“So, more to come on that. I believe that as we go forward with anything like that, it has to be in a bipartisan way, because it’s about all presidents, no matter who (he) or she may be down the road.”
A reporter asked Pelosi if Congress’s sudden attention to no-first-use has something to do with concerns that President Trump will launch a nuclear weapon at North Korea and lead the U.S. into World War III, as Sen. Bob Corker suggested recently.
“Well, this doesn’t’ really have to do with him, it has to do with the presidency of any president,” Pelosi said. “Now, I remind, if our country is attacked, the War Powers Act triggers for the executive any and all powers. But there is interest in the U.S. establishing itself as no first use.
President Trump often has scorned the notion of presidents letting the enemy know ahead of time what the United States may or may not do.
Of course he doesn’t want our enemies to know what we may or may not do. Who do you think he is…Barack Hussein Obama?
Of course, the old bi…err…bat wants to take control of the defense of our nation away from President Donald J. Trump.
She knows that the 45th President of the United States of America takes his job very seriously, as the world found out in his first address to the United Nations, which was very well received by those nations whose opinions actually matter.
Trump is not the madman that Pelosi tries to infer him to be.
Rather, he listens to his Cabinet and, so far, his Foreign Policy Maneuvers have been measured and precise.
Those who would violence against America now know that there is a “new sheriff in town”.
They are no longer dealing with Petulant President Pantywaist, who went on a World Apology Tour as soon as he got into office.
We are facing the very real possibility that the little Korean Madman, Kim Jong Un, is going to launch nuclear missiles at us.
While no President can control the actions of other countries, in their own affairs, the position of President of the United States has not historically been referred to as the Leader of the Free World for no reason.
That position has historically been the Vanguard in the fight against despotism and tyranny.
Unfortunately, for lovers of freedom the world over, instead of being the leader that the world and America itself needed, Barack Hussein Obama instead was an example of the Peter Principle.
He rose to his level of incompetence.
Obama believed in a “Chamberlain-esque” Foreign Policy of appeasement, consisting of vague warnings, pay-offs, and drawing red lines in the sand.
It didn’t work.
His continuance of the Democratic Strategy which began at the end of the Korean War of “kicking the can down the road”, instead of standing up and dealing with North Korea has led to the 45th President having to deal with a Nuclear North Korea led by a despotic madman with his finger on the button.
Our President’s plain-spoken warning of “fire and fury” to the little Korean Madman, Kim Jung Un, was entirely appropriate and needed to be said.
Regardless of the “Concerned Handwringing” from the usual suspects, including “San Fran Nan” Pelosi, the old bi…err…bat..
Much to their angst and chagrin, President Donald J. Trump appears to be adopting President Ronald Reagan’s Foreign Policy of “Peace Through Strength.”
And, unlike his ineffectual Democrat Predecessors, President Trump is willing to do whatever it takes to protect our Sovereign Nation.
Sebastian Gorka, President Trump’s Former Deputy Adviser on National Security Affairs, once said the following about politicians publicly second guessing the president on such grave matters as North Korea.
“Anybody, whether a member of Congress or a journalist, who thinks [their] politics trumps the national security of America, that’s an indictment of you. You need to ask yourself: what’s more important? My political party or America. There’s only one correct answer to that.”
Pelosi, the old bi…err…bat, per usual, answered “wrongly”.
