Stand up with President Biden and NATO Against Trump’s Evil Threat

A critical moment in the CNN presidential debate occurred when President Joe Biden asked Donald Trump directly if the former president intends to stay allied with NATO.

Trump didn’t respond.

“This is the guy who wants to get out of NATO. Are you going to stay in NATO?” Biden asked.

Trump shrugged dubiously and pursed his lips.

Biden explained.

“Our strength lies in our alliances as well. What happens if you have Putin (a KGB-trained dictator with a history of imprisoning and exiling opponents or watching as they die not-so-mysteriously) continue to go into NATO,” said the President.

Biden added of his opponent, “He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about.”

NATO consists of 32 European and North American allies committed to defending one another from armed attack. In a critical test of NATO power during his first term, President Biden demonstrated American leadership as he pulled NATO together to buck Russia’s Soviet-era-style invasion of Ukraine.

In addition, Biden rallied 50 other nations to support Ukraine, contain a war in Europe, and fund – over and above Trump’s opposition – Ukraine against Russian invasion. To date, it was Biden’s most significant victory, a display of courage and dedication to western democracy in the face of a totalitarian bent on imperial aggression.

In the debate, Trump demonstrated hopeless naivete and a genuine lack of understanding of history when he explained that America has less at stake in Russia’s aggression because “we have an ocean in between” us and Europe.

Keep in mind, this is the presidential candidate with numerous dubious ties to Russia, who encouraged a mob to march to the United States Capitol to stop Trump’s own vice president from certifying the 2020 presidential election that Trump lost to Biden.

This is the same man who refused to attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony and assist in the peaceful transition of American power.

This is the man who scorns the collective-defense clause at the heart of NATO and told the world he would encourage Russia to do “whatever the hell they want” to any NATO member country that doesn’t meet spending guidelines on defense.

“NATO was busted until I came along,” Trump said at a rally in Conway, South Carolina in February. “I said, ‘Everybody’s gonna pay.’ They said, ‘Well, if we don’t pay, are you still going to protect us?’ I said, ‘Absolutely not.’ They couldn’t believe the answer.” Trump said “one of the presidents of a big country” at one point asked him whether the US would still defend the country if they were invaded by Russia even if they “don’t pay.”

“No, I would not protect you,” Trump recalled telling that president. “In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You got to pay. You got to pay your bills.”

As the media continues to focus on a moment in the debate when Biden faltered – a moment in which he appeared to lose focus – the security of the west and indeed the fate of modern democracy hangs dangerously in the balance.

Pay heed, America.

Trump’s non-answer to Biden’s pointed question should hasten every defender of liberty to work from now through election day not only to oppose the former president, a convicted felon, but to forcefully reelect a president – a moral leader – who works in the best tradition of American defense and American power projection through alliance.

In the aftermath of America’s decision to largely go it alone in the second Gulf War and shoulder a two trillion-dollar price tag as a consequence, the Obama Doctrine critically repaired our country’s political alliances. In conjunction with his then-Vice President, foreign policy expert Joe Biden, Obama constructed those alliances not merely to build a secure and safe America and western world order but also to justly distribute the cost.

We repeat, as NATO convenes and the world watches America, NATO’s most prominent critic – running to get back into the White House – said he would feed NATO allies to Putin as punishment for nonpayment.

Consider this, America, as we undertake to reinforce the work of alliance-building under siege by a vile Russian dictator, that one of the worst missile attacks of the war in Ukraine occurred on Monday as the NATO summit began.

Forty-one people dead. One hundred and ninety injured.

The country’s largest children’s hospital, Okhmatdyt in Kyiv, bombarded, “leaving medical staff and sick children trapped under the rubble.”

In this neck-in-neck election cycle, you want to focus on a bad moment in the debate for President Biden?

Why don’t you try focusing on the evil threat by Trump to throw our allies to a dictator?

Why don’t you focus on the expression of moral turpitude on that convicted felon’s face (above) as a replacement for a mature and American response to a question put to him by the president of the United States?

Why don’t you focus on Trump’s pro-Putin, anti-American alliance siege underway with time ticking down to November 5th, Election Day?

  1. What was Trump thinking about when he said to NATO countries unless you start paying your “fair share “( you know the famous Democrat Party line );we will not defend you .
    Now thanks to President Biden NATO is once again content to have Americans pay for a war in Ukrainian after all if they spend their money on a war (in their own backyard ) they may not have the funds to build and sell us their cars or their wine, then where would we be?

  2. Trump knows nothing about foreign policy. It showed when he was President. He doesn’t understand NATO. Wanted to entertain the Taliban at Camp David. We barely survived his Presidency and now he is a convicted felon to boot.

  3. He is just an ignorant bully whose daddy’s millions allowed him to skate through life.
    Shameful he won once. There will not be a free America if he wins again.

  4. Nobody in their right mind is saying that Trump is worthy of serious consideration but that is only more reason for Democrats to insist on nominating the strongest possible contender.

    President Joe Biden has done great things in his 50 years of public service but he can~and most likely will~lose the election and condemn the world to incompetence and chaos.

    Sorry to say, but it is obvious that Joe has gotta go.

  5. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with this column, this is the columnist at his best.
    PASSIONATE, POWERFUL, AND AUTHENTIC

    To your own self be true.
    An inspiring column, Max Pizarro.

  6. Democrat Rep. Kim says “the problems we have with politics in New Jersey is the rise of corruption and cronyism”. That’s all happened under the Democrat-Communist Regime that’s been in charge of the Legislature for almost 40 years. The Democrats have been lying to us, gaslighting us, screwing us, harming us, damaging us, and even aiding and abetting in killing us (e.g., illegal alien sanctuary state). Anything the Democrat-Communist assholes state in this comment section is to be ignored. Especially, Michael Schnackenberg, who is calling for the assassination of President Trump. Tough talk from a mentally disturbed individual with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Hey, Michael, the next knock on your front door will be from the Secret Service.

    All of you Democrat-Communists SHOULD NOT VOTE for Trump. We the People that support Trump don’t want you to vote for him. We want you to keep suffering in your own little fiefdoms. If you even vote, you should ALL vote for Biden or Kamala, whom ever the Democrazy candidate du jour is.

    I continue to ask, what has Joe Biden done that was good for the country over his political term of the past 50 years in Congress and the White House??????????? I can’t think of anything good. He’s been a racist bigot for most of his life, and nothing has changed since he’s been in the White House.
