Trump & Nuclear Codes
Posted by absolutelyalicetoday (+4) 5 years ago
If Donald Trump in charge of nuclear weapons as commander in chief, is something you find scary, listen to the foreign policy speech, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave in San Diego on June 2, 2016.



Here are some of the best quotes from her speech:

1. "Donald Trump's ideas aren't just different - they are dangerously incoherent. They're not even really ideas - just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies."

2. "This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes - because it's not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin."

3. "We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren in Donald Trump's hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America."

4. "He says he doesn't have to listen to our generals or our admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials, because he has - quote - 'a very good brain.''"

5. "He says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the Miss Universe pageant in Russia."

6. "It's no small thing when he calls Mexican immigrants 'rapists and murderers.' We're lucky to have two friendly neighbors on our land borders. Why would he want to make one of them an enemy?"

7. " There's no risk of people losing their lives if you blow up a golf-course deal. But it doesn't work like that in world affairs. Just like being interviewed on the same episode of 60 Minutes as Putin was, is not the same thing as actually dealing with Putin. So the stakes in global statecraft are infinitely higher and more complex than in the world of luxury hotels. We all know the tools Donald Trump brings to the table - bragging, mocking, composing nasty tweets - I'm willing to bet he's writing a few right now."

8. "And I have to say, I don't understand Donald's bizarre fascination with dictators and strongmen who have no love for America. He praised China for the Tiananmen Square massacre; he said it showed strength. He said, 'You've got to give Kim Jong Un credit' for taking over North Korea - something he did by murdering everyone he saw as a threat, including his own uncle, which Donald described gleefully, like he was recapping an action movie. And he said if he were grading Vladimir Putin as a leader, he'd give him an A. Now, I'll leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants. I just wonder how anyone could be so wrong about who America's real friends are. Because it matters. If you don't know exactly who you're dealing with, men like Putin will eat your lunch."

9. "A Trump presidency would embolden ISIS. We cannot take that risk. This isn't reality television - this is actual reality."

10. "So it really matters that Donald Trump says things that go against our deepest-held values. It matters when he says he'll order our military to murder the families of suspected terrorists. During the raid to kill bin Laden, when every second counted, our SEALs took the time to move the women and children in the compound to safety. Donald Trump may not get it, but that's what honor looks like. And it also matters when he makes fun of disabled people, calls women 'pigs,' proposes banning an entire religion from our country, or plays coy with white supremacists. America stands up to countries that treat women like animals, or people of different races, religions, or ethnicities as less human."

11. "What happens to the moral example we set - for the world and for our own children - if our president engages in bigotry? And by the way, Mr. Trump - every time you insult American Muslims or Mexican immigrants, remember that plenty of Muslims and immigrants serve and fight in our armed forces. Donald Trump could learn something from them."

12. "Now imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room, making life-or-death decisions on behalf of the United States. Imagine him deciding whether to send your spouses or children into battle. Imagine if he had not just his Twitter account at his disposal when he's angry, but America's entire arsenal. Do we want him making those calls - someone thin-skinned and quick to anger, who lashes out at the smallest criticism? Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?"

13. "This election is a choice between two very different visions of America. One that's angry, afraid, and based on the idea that America is fundamentally weak and in decline. The other is hopeful, generous, and confident in the knowledge that America is great - just like we always have been."

I believe the only foreign policy Mrs. Clinton knows is how to negotiate the largest sum of money for the sale of any aspect of our nation. The total to be deposited to her accounts.

Then, there are these types of issues that have to be dealt with from much earlier Presidents....

President Trump will do just fine.

Fear mongering ill suits either party. Do you see me blathering on about Bernie making us all wear Nehru jackets? (Although I easily could).

Time to chill out and vote on Tuesday.
REMEMBER, the Donald is the true Republican running. Vote Democrat or Libertarian otherwise in this primary season. We need to defeat the Tea party, as Trump has showed us the way.

Fantastic story and a marvelous attempt by Leftists to rewrite history.

Bloomberg dredges up this bit of ancient history to trash Nixon and the Republicans for their support of Israel in the Yom Kippur war. The point being that we have been beholding to Saudis for 40 years because of them. Little or no mention of the Cold War implications in Yom Kippur or the real OPEC melt-down under Carter. I suspect that any deal cut with the Saudis during this time period was all about keeping their oil away from the control of the Soviets.

Then they show the graph to demonstrate how beholding we were/are. Nothing really eye-popping past the middle of the 1980's. But then our level of indebtedness to the Middle East oil exporters goes from almost ZERO at the end of the Bush II first term to $200-$300 Billion at the end of Obama's second term.

Curious that the ugly here is a relatively new phenomenon.
