President Trump Should Be Next Week’s Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

By Rep. Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.

On Oct. 5, 2018, the Norwegian Nobel Committee will be announcing this year’s recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. If there is any remaining intellectual honesty in the Committee, the next Nobel Peace Prize Laureate should be President Donald J. Trump.  

To be sure, he would be an unconventional choice, but President Trump is an unconventional man, and we are living in an historical pinnacle of unconventionality.  

So, why does President Trump merit the Nobel prize?

First, he has consistently delivered a vision for the world’s future centered upon the concepts of individual freedoms, democracy, patriotism, and the supremacy of the nation state. He has told the community of nations that unlike the message delivered by his predecessors, it’s okay for each nation to represent its own interests, while accepting that the United States will be acting with the same premise. But even as he delivers this message, he cautions about the necessity of adherence to the Thomistic presumption that a nation’s leader, indeed the nation itself, exists for the purposes of promoting the rights of its citizens and loses its right to remain in power if it abandons the rights of the people they represent.

Consequently, President Trump called out Venezuela for its socialistic policies that he says have bankrupted that state and oppressed its people. He also called out Iran and its tyrannical actions, not only with regard to its citizens, but also as they relate to its regional neighbors. As such, he has withdrawn the United States from the Iran deal that only served to enrich Iran and strengthen its support of rogue regimes and terrorist organizations.

Additionally, Trump has unequivocally identified the absolute unacceptability of allowing Iran, a regime that routinely chants death to Americans and calls for the annihilation of Israel, to possess a nuclear weapon and has mobilized nations to pressure the regime into abandoning the program.

Within the United Nations, he has insisted that the United Nations Commission on Human Rights be reformed and has called for ending the practice of allowing nations that do not respect the fundamental rights of man from being allowed access to world trade.

Except for those celebrating magniloquence and rhetoric, no award should be given without the actions to merit them. So, let’s look at what President Trump has accomplished.

President Trump’s first visit abroad included Saudi Arabia, Israel, Rome, Brussels, and Sicily on the same trip, sending a symbol of unification and leadership unmatched since Kissinger’s visit to China and Reagan’s visit to Berlin.

On the humanitarian front, on July 7, 2017, during a working session of the G20 summit of world leaders, President Trump promised $639 million in humanitarian aid for Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen (yes, Yemen).

In the Middle East, he procured the commitment from the region’s nations, so that they, for the first time, worked seriously with the United States to end terrorism. Their concerted efforts at ridding the world of this cancer was instrumental to defeating ISIS, a feat not possible except for the motivational and leadership efforts of one Donald J. Trump. These same countries have now pledged to provide $2 billion in humanitarian aid for Yemen.

In Iran, the President has stopped the flow of billions of dollars to the regime and is working with the international community to increase the pressure with the aim of changing Iran’s hostile and destructive behaviors.

But perhaps North Korea is where the President’s influence has been most effective. For the first time, denuclearization is a real, albeit still difficult, possibility. The world took note when the President met with Kim Jong-Un and, amazingly, offered him the chance to have a look at the inside of the Presidential limousine. Who can forget Kim Jong-Un’s joyful reaction to that spontaneous and unscripted moment? As a result, Rocket Man stopped shooting rockets, American remains are being returned, and hostages have been released (this time in better conditions than being on the brink of death).

The only American leader to have the courage to move the American embassy to Jerusalem in compliance with Israel’s desires is Donald J Trump. He did it as promised, and he did it despite the protestations from countless others. In the end, despite the unrelenting pressure against him, the mission was accomplished and the threatened apocalypse never happened.

Yes, President Trump’s style is confrontational, and he continuously deploys hard-hitting rhetoric laced with unapologetic stances. Almost incomprehensibly, he has been willing to take the world to the brink of war with the aim of achieving of a lasting peace; and as he likes to say, he has won and continues to win in so doing.  

Although the left is busy criticizing him, maligning him, and even laughing at him, President Trump’s many accomplishments at making the world a safer place in a mere two years has really been nothing short of remarkable. So, we are left with one question for the Norwegian Nobel Committee: what person has accomplished more than Donald J. Trump to improve man’s situation and foster peace on earth in the recent past?  

As difficult as it may be for some to admit. The answer is no one.

D-Day Military Truth War

Message of Normandy: Our Nation Conquers Evil

By Rep. Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.

Once again, the time arrives for us to pause and recall the Herculean efforts made by our soldiers, our country, and our European allies on the beaches of Normandy in 1944. This time, however, we come to June 6 under the most sobering of circumstances, and the need to remember who we are as a people.  

Like with our predecessors, we find our European friends in Great Britain, France and elsewhere under assault by the darkest and most sinister forces imaginable. The war being waged upon western society and our way of life is existential in its proportions, and those seeking the slaughter of innocents and the elimination of entire societies will not stop until they have accomplished their mission of exterminating the infidels and killing anyone who disagrees with their deranged perception of their religion.  

But on June 6, 1944, we fought back against evil with unwavering resolve and a fighting force of over 326,547 Allied fighters. We did this because we, the American people, with our friends in Europe, recognized that humanity was encountering evil, and when confronted with such wickedness there was no other choice than to exterminate it.

So, today, in light of the scores of attacks upon our allies, upon our interests, and upon our soil we are faced with the inescapable question of whether there exists a difference between the evil we faced on June 6, 1944, and the one we face today. And if our forefathers made the decision to confront such an evil as resolutely and uncompromisingly as their wills would allow, then aren’t we equally as obligated to stamp out the threat to our peace and security today?  

The fact is, that just as in World War II, whether we admit it or not, the United States and its European allies have already been dragged into a war. What President Trump has understood, that many still do not, is the existential nature of this latest confrontation.

 

Realities of the homefront battle

The war in which we find ourselves is wholly different from others we have previously waged. This is not a territorial war. It is not a war for access to a year-round port, nor is it for the control of a precious mineral. This war is waged simply for the soul of western civilization and for the permanent control of its posterity. And like any other war, if we are to prevail, we must take the offensive.

And how do we do this?

We must begin with a concerted effort to root out terrorist sympathizers wherever they hide.

• Let no uncivil agitator or potential terrorist rest easily for fear of being raided amidst planning his plot.

• We must build our southern wall and enforce our immigration laws so that anyone crossing our borders does so only with our blessings and after submitting to our scrutiny.

• We must ensure that those entering our country remain here only for as long as they have been given permission and no longer.

Towards this end, the U.S. Supreme Court must accelerate its reversal of the lower courts’ opinions regarding President Trump’s travel order and recognize the innately obvious — the United States does have the right to selectively close its borders, particularly under the threat of an attack coming from abroad.

 

Realities of the offshore battle

On the foreign front, we must engage with our allies in a concerted and overwhelming effort to root out all elements of evil and terrorism quickly and decisively. And let anyone who stands in our way do so under the fear of complete annihilation.

Each of us must accept the real notion that some of us may have to die in defense of those things we hold so dear and that such a death is a worthy and noble investment so that our progeny may live in freedom and in a state of unoppressed service to God.  

These are, at the very least, the measures we must take merely to begin to successfully prosecute this war.

The battles in Normandy saw more than 209,000 allied casualties with 16,714 confirmed deaths. Like our brethren of the Greatest Generation, we must remove all doubt as to our resolve and be confident that in this battle like those that preceded it

We fight for righteousness and peace — a peace that sometimes demands we reluctantly but resolutely pick up a weapon.
