My Trump friendly friends at Bear Witness Central have written to the candidate with some some concerns and suggestions re foreign policy and national security. Well worth a read.
Dear Mr. Trump:
We are writing to you on behalf of the Florida-based conservative organization Bear Witness Central. We congratulate you on your primary victories and for your energizing many average Americans who would never normally consider voting for a Republican candidate. While Bear Witness Central cannot endorse candidates in any election, we admit that there are many areas of common agreement with your platform. Your positions on trade, immigration, the abuse of H-1B visas, and subversion through Islamic refugees are identical to that of Bear Witness Central. We believe that trade reform, a strong military, and responsibly tight border controls are conducive to achieving a sovereign America again.
Another area of concern for Bear Witness Central and many Americans are the twin threats of Russia and communist China. Both are on record as opposing American interests and seeking to eviscerate our power in the world.
Unfortunately, the Cold War never conclusively ended. Instead, the old Soviet Communists repositioned themselves and gained tremendous advantages in the areas of arms control, technology transfers, and trade concessions. While this assertion is not politically correct, it is grounded in solid factual information.
Russia continues to conduct military exercises and maneuvers against the US (sometimes in tandem with China); export weapons to rogue anti-American states; develop global alliance of communist and Islamic powers; commit espionage and subversion against American interests; and pay fealty to communism. Communist China continues to threaten the American mainland with annihilation; support global communist parties and even al-Qaeda/Taliban forces; destroy American manufacturing through predatory trade practices; proclaim their fealty for global Marxism-Leninism; and cooperate with anti-US regimes in Iran, Cuba, and other likeminded nations.
Let us proclaim with crystal clarity: the leadership and activist base of Bear Witness Central do not prescribe aggressive actions which would lead to a global war. We are seeking to avoid a Third World War by recommending the following measures:
- Educating American citizens and political candidates of all parties on the nature of the global threats emanating from Islamo-totalitarianism, Russia, and China.
- Requesting the political class to publicly identify that Russia, communist China, and Islamo-totalitarianism represent an existential threat to the survival of the United States.
- Develop a national program of civil defense, comprehensive anti-missile (ABM) systems, and revitalization of our ground, naval, and air forces.
- A progressive weaning away from any dependence on strategic materials and manufactured goods imported from Russia, China, and volatile regions in the Middle East.
- Military intervention only when American interests are directly threatened.
- An unequivocal admission that our industrial economic power is synonymous with the redevelopment of superior military superiority.
We argue that the proposed measures would strengthen our power at home without sacrificing the lives and limbs of American soldiers and officers. Restoring American power on the home front is critical in the effort to rebuild our Nation’s economic-military power.
Lastly, we kindly encourage you to review some of these quotes and reports mentioned below. They are attached in this letter in order to provide a factual basis for the concerns of the membership and leaders of Bear Witness Central and many other patriotic Americans.
“I want to warn Americans…You believe because the Soviet Union no longer exists, Russia now is your friend. It isn’t, and I can show you how the SVR (i.e., KGB) is trying to destroy the U.S. even today and even more than the KGB did during the Cold War.” Defecting KGB/SVR Col. Sergei Tretyakov quoted in Earley, Pete. Comrade J
“Russia continues to conduct aggressive offensive missile training in the Pacific against U.S. and Allied Forces. We should understand that they look at ‘reset’ differently than we do…They look at it as regaining their previous USSR position as a superpower.” Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney quoted in Russia Reform Monitor Number 1827 April 26, 2013
“Russian intelligence activity against this country (the United States) is much more active than it was in time of the former Soviet Union. And this activity just now is much more dangerous for this country than it was before.” Defecting GRU Colonel Stanislav Lunev quoted in Pry, Peter Vincent. War Scare: Russia and America on the Nuclear Brink
In 2001, Russian troops joined in a Chinese PLA nuclear attack exercise conducted against the United States for assistance rendered to Taiwan. The exercises involved strategic bombing runs conducted by Russian Air Force Tu-22 and Su-27 planes near Japan. The Tu-22s were equipped with nuclear cruise missiles. The details of this Sino-Russian exercise was contained in this report of the following sequence of events: “The Asia scenario began with a Chinese military attack on Taiwan that was followed by the use of U.S. ground troops on the island, said one official. Next, China escalated the conflict by firing tactical nuclear missiles on the U.S. troops in Taiwan, prompting U.S. nuclear strikes on Chinese forces. Russian nuclear forces then threatened to use nuclear missile strikes on U.S. forces in the region, including strikes on troops in South Korea and Japan.” Russia also fired ICBMs from land launchers and SLBMs from submarines in this exercise. Washington Times April 30, 2001
“The Myth that the Cold War has ended is the greatest delusion of the West. Let us ask a simple question: When did the Cold War finish–what date? When the armistice agreement was signed? And who admitted defeat?” he asked with a hint of sarcasm. Many believe that the Soviet Union was defeated. But maybe it has only gotten smaller. In fact, I do not see a large difference between the current Russia and the Soviet Union. Especially because some of its former republics – independent on paper – are still governed by the Kremlin; and if you try to approach any passerby on the Russian street and ask him if the Cold War is finished, he will tell you that it is not so, and that the U.S. is running the Cold War against Russia. He knows it from Russian state propaganda.” KGB/SVR defector Konstantin Preobrazhenskiy quoted in Worldnetdaily January 8, 2001
“Both Russia and China know America’s vulnerabilities, and they are exploiting them as much as they can.” KGB/SVR defector Konstantin Preobrazhenskiy quoted in Worldnetdaily January 8, 2001
“I liked Communist and socialist ideas very much and I like them still.” Vladimir Putin, 2016 quoted in Newsweek, January 25, 2016
“Russia has chosen to be an adversary and poses a long-term existential threat to the United States and to our European allies and partners…Russia is eager to exert unquestioned influence over its neighboring states in its buffer zone…so has used military force to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, Georgia and others, like Moldova.” Supreme NATO commander Philip Breedlove, 2016
In conclusion, the leadership of Bear Witness Central would like to meet with you or your top representatives (e.g. Stephen Miller) to discuss these issues in greater detail. We are willing to meet with you anytime at any location within the State of Florida. Let us join together in our common goal to “Make America Great Again” through truthfulness, solid analysis, and patriotism.
