America First

america first400x400We subscribe to an America First foreign policy which is characterized by the belief in the strength and the character of the American people. It is not an isolationist policy but rather one which prioritizes the security and safety of American people and the sanctity of American laws, values and culture. We believe in treaties and tariffs which strengthen our diplomatic and economic prowess including a stronger NATO and USMCA, a peace through strength Middle East policy and a roster of alternative trade partners to China.

China Sends Record 28 Fighter Jets Toward Taiwan After Telling NATO: ‘We Won’t Sit Back’

China Sends Record 28 Fighter Jets Toward Taiwan After Telling NATO: ‘We Won’t Sit Back’ The timing appears an unmistakable message and warning to the West after on Monday NATO issued a communiqué which for the first time ever singled out China as a central security “challenge” to the military alliance and a stable global order: China’s PLA military on Tuesday flew a record 28 fighter jets into Taiwan’s air defense identification zone. While China has over the past months since Biden took office flown near daily groups of aircraft and bombers near or in Taiwan contested airspace, this latest comes as Biden is in Europe shoring up support among allies for a tougher united front against Beijing. In March China’s military had sent a record at that time of 20 aircraft, which included four nuclear-capable bombers, but Tuesday’s 28 total aircraft marks the biggest incursion since Taiwan’s defense ministry began keeping public tally of incursions. According to the AP, “The planes included various types of fighter jets including 14 J-16 and six J-11 planes, as well as bombers, the ministry said.” And further the report noted “China’s show of force comes after leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized nations issued a statement Sunday calling for a peaceful resolution of cross-Taiwan Strait issues and underscored the importance of peace and stability.” In response Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on Tuesday slammed the G-7 nations as deliberately “interfering in China’s internal affairs.” He added: “China’s determination to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests is unwavering.” NATO’s later communiqué was even more muscular, calling out China’s “assertive behavior which presents systemic challenges to the rules-based international order and to areas relevant to Alliance security.” BREAKING: Taiwan Defense Ministry says 28 Chinese PLA warplanes entered its ADIZ this morning. Largest known recent incursion. https://t.co/h0ngSh3RVf — Jesse

GOP Lawmakers Unveil Bill To Defund 1619 Project In Public Schools

GOP Lawmakers Unveil Bill To Defund 1619 Project In Public Schools Authored by Isabel van Brugen via The Epoch Times, A group of Republican lawmakers on Monday unveiled legislation that would block federal funds for public schools from being used to teach the controversial 1619 Project published by The New York Times. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) at the Conservative Partnership Institute in Washington on July 27, 2020. (Brendon Fallon/The Epoch Times) Reps. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) and Rick Allen (R-Ga.), alongside Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), reintroduced the “Saving American History Act” (pdf) which “would ban federal funds from being used to teach the 1619 Project in K-12 schools or school districts,” a news release from Buck’s office states. The 1619 Project, an offshoot of the Marxist teaching model critical race theory (CRT), has been criticized for attempting to rewrite American history as fundamentally racist and disregarding the merits of the nation’s founding documents. The controversial project has been panned by historians as having false information. It is a “racially divisive and revisionist account of history that threatens the integrity of the Union by denying the true principles on which it was founded,” the bill states. “Critical Race Theory is dangerous, anti-American, and has no place in our nation’s schools,” said Buck in a statement. “School curriculum plays a critical role in a child’s development and greatly influences the type of adult they will become.” The lawmaker added, ”Children shouldn’t be taught that they will be treated differently or will be racist because of their skin color.” Former President Donald Trump established the so-called “1776 Commission” in the final months of his presidency to combat “false narratives about the American Founding,” however, it was formally dissolved by President Joe Biden upon taking office. The Biden administration has put CRT as its top priority and

USS Regan Strike Group Enters Heavily Disputed South China Sea 

USS Regan Strike Group Enters Heavily Disputed South China Sea  The great power competition between China and the U.S. continued Tuesday as the Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group sailed into the South China Sea for the first time this year, according to a U.S. Navy press release.  The strike group’s aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh and the guided-missile destroyer USS Halsey. The group of vessels entered the heavily disrupted South China Sea waters on Tuesday to conduct a maritime security operation.  The Navy said, “upholding freedom of the seas in the South China Sea is vitally important where nearly a third of global maritime trade, roughly 3.5 trillion dollars, a third of global crude oil, and half of the global liquefied natural gas passes through the sea each year.”  This comes vulnerabilities to global trade continue beyond narrow chokepoints as more than 200 Chinese vessels, mainly fishing vessels believed to be manned by China’s maritime militia, have been causing havoc near the Philippines.  Earlier this year, the USS John S. McCain, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, was “expelled” by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) from the Paracel Islands in the heavily disrupted waters. PLA alleged, at the time, around February, the destroyer “trespassed” into China’s territorial waters. In April, the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier and its strike group sailed through the region as exclusive economic zones between the Philippine government and Chinese were in dispute.  The Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group is expected to conduct maritime security operations, “which include flight operations with fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, maritime strike exercises, and coordinated tactical training between surface and air units,” according to the Navy.  Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group commander rear admiral Will Pennington said:  “The South China Sea is pivotal to the free flow of commerce that fuels
