The 10 best things Trump did in 2018

By Marc Thiessen    December 31, 2018

In his second year in office, the list of extraordinary things President Trump has done, for good and ill, continued to grow. Today, I offer my annual list of the 10 best things Trump has done in office. (In my next column, I will give you my list of the 10 worst.)

10.
He has secured the release of 19 people, including 16 Americans, from foreign captivity. When Pastor Andrew Brunson was freed by Turkey, he became the 19th captive released thanks to Trump. Others include: four held by North Korea; an aid worker and her husband held by Egypt; three UCLA basketball players and a Texas businesswoman held by China; a couple and their three children held by the Taliban; a former CIA officer held by Portugal; and two citizens held by Venezuela. That’s more Americans freed in two years than President Barack Obama got released in eight. And unlike Obama, Trump did it without releasing terrorist leaders or sending planeloads of cash to rogue regimes, creating incentive for more hostage taking.

9.
He delivered for the “forgotten Americans.” The Trump boom is benefiting those left behind by the Obama economy. Manufacturing jobs grew at the fastest rate in 23 years and the unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma reached the lowest point ever recorded. The Wall Street Journal reports that wages rose 3.1 percent — the biggest jump since 2009 — and that “low-skilled workers are among the biggest beneficiaries.”

8.
He worked with Democrats and Republicans to pass important legislation. It didn’t get a lot of attention, but Trump got a lot done on a bipartisan basis, including criminal justice reform, opioid and sex trafficking legislation, and a new “Right to Try” law giving dying Americans access to experimental medications.

7.
He has ushered in a golden age for women in the CIA. Trump not only appointed Gina Haspel as the agency’s first female director but also made Elizabeth Kimber the first woman to lead the agency’s clandestine service — rewarding the CIA’s “band of sisters” who have toiled to keep the country safe since 9/11.

6.
His push to expand domestic energy production bore fruit. This year the United States passed both Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s top oil producer.

TRUMP – IT’S ALL ABOUT LEVERAGE

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Trump and the centers of gravity

– – L.  Scott Ligamfelter is a retired  U.S. Army colonel, combat veteran and Middle East Foreign Area Officer.  He also served in the Virginia General Assembly for 16 years.     Wednesday, June 20, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

June 25, 2018

President Donald Trump, like everyone alive today, never met Prussian military theorist Carl Von Clausewitz, but the author of “Vom Kriege” (“On War”) would have found pleasant company with the man who inspired “The Art of the Deal.” For Clausewitz, war involved politics in addition to “other means” to arrive at a “deal”; in other words to obtain the objectives of a nation at war.

For Mr. Trump, it’s about maximizing one’s leverage in obtaining the “deal,” one of his 11 tenets in the art of deal-making. And in that regard, Mr. Trump has demonstrated that he understands both the Clausewitzian concept of the “center of gravity” — the basis of an opponent’s power at the operational, strategic or political level — and the art of leveraging national power. Three examples are instructive: North Korea, Iran and ISIS.

North Korea’s center of gravity is the survival of the regime of Kim Jong-un. It’s a criminal cartel, but worse yet, one whose sidearms are a host of conventional artillery keenly aimed at South Korea and a nuclear threat recklessly pointed at the world. Which is why the president wasted no time putting “Little Rocket Man” in a very hot seat by ratcheting up the tough talk in response to Mr. Kim’s verbal threats and missile-launch intimidation.

Moreover he jettisoned the effete “strategic patience” approach of previous administrations and imposed “maximum pressure” on the Hermit Kingdom. That story is playing out now following the Singapore summit. Mr. Kim knows his regime is at stake. Mr. Trump does, too. Mr. Kim would be wise not to trifle with him.

DAMAGE TO NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR SITE CONFIRMED

Friday, May 11th, 2018

 

I sent out an article two weeks ago regarding this damage to North Korea’s nuclear site but have  heard nothing to confirm this report except for Rush mentioning it about a week ago.  This article states that a large part of a nuclear test site is inoperable and will probably require a substantial investment in the construction of another facility elsewhere.   Perhaps this is the reason Kim Jong Un has been willing to come to the negotiating table with President Trump.     Nancy

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Damage to North Korea’s Nuclear Test Site Worse Than Previously Thought

A much larger part of the Punggye-ri site collapsed after Pyongyang’s last test, scientists say

BEIJING—The damage to the nuclear test site that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has promised to shut down is more extensive than earlier assessments showed, according to a new study by a team of international scientists.

Space-based radar showed that after the initial impact of North Korea’s latest nuclear test in September last year, a much larger part of the Punggye-ri test site caved in over the following hours and days, according to a study published in Science magazine on Thursday. The study was conducted by researchers from Singapore, Germany, China and the U.S.

“This means that a very large domain has collapsed around the test site, not merely a tunnel or two,” said Sylvain Barbot, one of the authors who is an assistant professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

NORTH KOREA’S TEST SITE HAS COLLAPSED

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

 

 NORTH KOREA”S TEST SITE HAS COLLAPSED

North Korea’s mountain nuclear test site has collapsed, putting China and other nearby nations at unprecedented risk of radioactive exposure, two separate groups of Chinese scientists studying the issue have confirmed.

The collapse after five nuclear blasts may be why North Korean leader Kim Jong-un declared on Friday that he would freeze the hermit state’s nuclear and missile tests and shut down the site, one researcher said.

The last five of Pyongyang’s six nuclear tests have all been carried out under Mount Mantap at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in North Korea’s northwest.

One group of researchers found that the most recent blast tore open a hole in the mountain, which then collapsed upon itself. A second group concluded that the breakdown created a “chimney” that could allow radioactive fallout from the blast zone below to rise into the air.

A research team led by Wen Lianxing, a geologist with the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, concluded that the collapse occurred following the detonation last autumn of North Korea’s most powerful thermal nuclear warhead in a tunnel about 700 metres (2,296 feet) below the mountain’s peak.

The test turned the mountain into fragile fragments, the researchers found.

Excellent !   Please share with your email lists. Nancy 

A great synopsis on the history of communism. Something all our children and grandchildren should see and understand, especially with the high percentage of millennials thinking that Bernie Sanders and Socialism is the answer.

VIDEO – MISTAKES OF THE PAST SHOULD NOT BE REPEATED

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

 

Thanks to Anthony Bruno for sharing his comments and the following video  Nancy

I received the following video which should be a warning
that tyrants, fools and madmen can never be appeased.
Eighty years ago this lesson was should have been learned,
but apparently was forgotten in the last fifty years.
This video begins with President Bill Clinton assuring the
American people of the good deal made with North Korea
in 1994 followed by Donald Trump interviewed on ‘Meet
the Press’ in 2000, and lastly, President Trump last month.
The video is on this twitter link, it should start immediately.

VIDEO – PUBLIC LIES, PRIVATE TRUTHS: WHY COMMUNISM FELL AND TRUMP WON

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

 

 Thanks to Mike Scruggs for sharing this video.  His comment is below.  Nancy

This video is a perceptive analysis by the Canadian “Black Pigeon” website, whose author is obviously a media professional. This deals with “political correctness” and its ultimate extreme, which I sometimes refer to as “Salem Witch Trial hysteria.” It is all a destructive fear of admitting and telling the truth despite sometimes tremendous social or physical intimidation. 

It is even pushing some Western nations to cultural and political suicide.   Mike Scruggs
