Woodrow Wilson won the election of 1916 because he campaigned on a platform of peace. He had kept us out of war. On April 2, 1917, he asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. The Senate voted to go to war on April 4. It took until April 6 for the House of Representatives to vote for war.
Donald Trump campaigned on the promise he would “bomb the hell out of ISIS.” Instead, he bombed installations of the Syrian government. This was on April 6, 2017 — one hundred years to the day after the House voted for war with Germany.
Conservative talk show host Michael Savage said the following on April 7.
Like Trump, Woodrow Wilson ran on an America First platform. He was elected largely because he kept us out of the war in Europe. But someone got to him, too. They turned him to declare that ‘neutrality was no longer feasible or desirable.’ And after the war, when Wilson tried to rally the world for a lasting peace, and to form the League of Nations, our Congress wanted no part of it. And the deal that was reached to secure the peace in Europe became a punishment to the losers. And where did that lead? An even worse conflict were millions more died. That gave us the United Nations.And what happened in that body yesterday? Nikki Haley, Trump’s pick for U.N. ambassador, laid the law down to Russia about the attacks in Syria, saying their acts were unconscionable, accusing them for their complicity in the deaths of children.
All of this is on the generals. Maybe Bannon was the one fighting with the generals, the only one standing against war, and now he’s gone. It’s generals who rushed world powers in WWI, and it’s happening again. Their powers increase with war. They shouldn’t want war, they should want peace.
President Trump came on the air with me and said if he was elected, he could talk to Russia even before he took office. That’s what making peace is about.
The Dems turned it into a crime and want to impeach him over it. The generals have gotten to him and turned him from peace with Russia. And the people standing in the way of war, like Steve Bannon, are being shown the door.
This beating of the war drums with Russia has to stop.
Rush Limbaugh said this:
Speaking of people who are not happy with what happened, Andy McCarthy, my buddy at National Review Online, tweeted last night — and has now published a lengthy piece — that none of this is legal. That there are no vital U.S. national interests at stake. That Trump needed congressional authority or a resolution, and he didn’t get one. And besides Trump on the campaign trail never said he would do it this. In fact, he said he would never do this. He campaigned on doing just the opposite of this.
He was just getting warmed up.
