Prepare for a Post-Trump World Order

Get ready for war?

During the NATO
at 70
hearing before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign
Relations on April 2, 2019, Ian Brzezinski of the Atlantic Council
offered a preview of American foreign policy under a Joe Biden
administration. Brzezinski submitted the following advice to Senators
regarding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)—

“First, the Alliance must
accelerate its efforts to increase preparedness for high intensity
conflict . . .

“Addressing this challenge
is the responsibility of all NATO allies. This is the second
challenge before NATO. Our European Allies must invest more to
increase the capability and readiness of their armed forces . . .

“Third, NATO needs to
reinforce its increasingly vulnerable flanks in North Central Europe,
the Black Sea region and the Arctic . . .

“Fourth, the Alliance must
more substantially embrace and support the membership aspirations of
Ukraine and Georgia.”

Brzezinski’s fourth
recommendation is an unnecessary provocation that could easily spark
a kinetic war between the United States and the Russian Federation—or
one of their proxies (such as Iran). Putin has already demonstrated
his willingness to risk world war to prevent Ukraine and Georgia from
joining NATO and the European Union (EU). On July
18, 2018
, Putin said—

“The key to providing
security and safety in Europe is in expanding cooperation and
restoring trust, and not in deploying new NATO bases and military
infrastructure near Russia’s borders, which is what is taking place
now.

“We will respond
appropriately to such aggressive steps, which pose a direct threat to
Russia. Our colleagues, who are trying to aggravate the situation,
seeking to include, among others, Ukraine and Georgia in the orbit of
the alliance, should think about the possible consequences of such an
irresponsible policy.

“We need a new, positive
agenda aimed at collaboration and attempts to find common ground. Of
course, I discussed this during my meeting with the President of the
United States, Mr. Trump.

“With our views being
different on many matters, we agreed that Russia-US relations are
deeply unsatisfactory and in many ways even worse than during the
Cold War.”

Vice President Biden, the
Bully, has already proved his willingness to risk world war to
protect Western economic interests in Ukraine. The Euromaidan crisis,
after all, erupted after Putin convinced Ukrainian President Viktor
Yanukovych to renege on the Ukraine-European Union (EU) Association
Agreement in 2013. Putin wanted Ukraine to join the emerging Eurasian
Economic Union (EAEU) instead. (The EAEU is the trade bloc Hillary
Clinton vowed
to prevent in 2012 when she was Secretary of State.) Western
intelligentsia facilitated regime change to keep Ukraine looking West
rather than East.

Truth be told, Bully Biden was
looking out for the Burisma Group—a major energy company in
Ukraine. Shortly after President Petro Poroshenko signed the
Ukraine-EU trade deal in 2014, Bully Biden’s son, Hunter, joined
the Burisma Group’s board of directors. In October of 2017, Burisma
and the Atlantic Council signed a cooperative
agreement
stating that the “Atlantic Council will develop
transatlantic programs with the Burisma Group’s support, focusing
on European and international energy security.” Does this
relationship help explain Brzezinski’s testimony at the NATO at 70
hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in April of
2019? Bully Biden must never become President of the United States.
He is a clear and present danger to world peace.

Trump is possibly the first
President of the United States that Vladimir Putin can find some
common ground. It is no secret that Putin longs for a multipolar
world augmented by a new international economic order. So does Trump.
During his first address before the UN General Assembly on September
19, 2017, President Trump endorsed
the UN “vision that diverse nations could cooperate to protect
their sovereignty, preserve their security, and promote their
prosperity.” Trump also declared that “strong, sovereign nations
let diverse countries with different values, different cultures, and
different dreams not just coexist, but work side by side on the basis
of mutual respect.”

On September 25, 2018, Trump
doubled down on his support for a multipolar world when he outlined
his “America
First
” foreign policy agenda based on principled realism guided
by outcomes rather than ideology. He told the UN General Assembly—
“America will always choose independence and cooperation over
global governance, control, and domination. I honor the right of
every nation in this room to pursue its own customs, beliefs, and
traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work
or worship. We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.”

Trump further declared that
“trade must be fair and reciprocal,” adding that “many nations
in this hall will agree that the world trade system is in dire need
of change. For example, countries were admitted to the World Trade
Organization that violate every single principle on which the
organization is based. While the United States and many other nations
play by the rules, these countries use government-run industrial
planning and state-owned enterprises to rig the system in their
favor. They engage in relentless product dumping, forced technology
transfer, and the theft of intellectual property.”

Trump longs for a world order
based on cultural coexistence and mutual prosperity. Putin is ready
to sit down with him to negotiate its terms and conditions.
Atlanticists, Trilateralists, and Globalists, however, will do
everything in their power to prevent Trump from reaching the
negotiating table. They know Trump has done nothing that cannot be
reversed overnight by a Joe Biden presidency. These international
factions are extremely resilient. The rules of the existing
international economic order remain in their favor. If free trade
continues to exist between regulated and underregulated economies,
they will continue to win at the expense of the working class. They
would rather risk World War Three than share the spoils after winning
the Cold War.

If Putin truly desires a
multipolar world augmented by a new international economic order, he
can start by working with other permanent members of the UN Security
Council to find a peaceful resolution to the pending Iranian crisis.
The United Nations, after all, was established after World War Two on
the principle of multipolarity. Its purpose is to maintain the
sovereign rights and territorial integrity of its members. Trump and
Putin have already signaled their willingness to pursue gradual
UN reform
to make it more efficient and effective. Once the
United States and Russia are willing to culturally coexist and work
together to maintain international peace, a new international
economic order that embraces mutual prosperity can be explored.

The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee must get ready to advise and consent on treaties and
executive agreements after President Trump secures four more years in
2020. The influence of the Atlantic Council—and other Atlanticist,
Trilateralist, and Globalist think tanks—must be balanced by
proponents of alternative world order strategies. The precedent for
this approach is documented in my article, The
Atlantic Union Idea – Conveniently Forgotten History
.

Like former President Reagan,
Trump is saving his signature foreign policy achievement for his
second term. I hereby call on Senator Rand Paul to convince the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee to hold hearings on the future of
American foreign and economic policy. A multipolar world augmented by
a new international economic order is on the horizon. It will be
forged by Sino-Russian conquest (potentially triggering world war)—or
international consent. Let’s choose the latter.

In the spirit of Federalist
No. 10
, it’s time to explore a post-Trump world order capable
of controlling the effects of international faction. We, the people,
must work together to prevent Atlanticists, Trilateralists, and
Globalists from picking up where they left off after term-limits
finally end the Trump era. These factions, and their minions in the
U.S. Congress, are setting the stage for World War Three. They truly
believe that the national security interests of the United States are
synonymous with their own. The Atlantic Council does not speak for
me.

Senator Paul, are you
listening?
