Our President is ill. Will one of our enemies take advantage of this situation?
Before 6:00 a.m., when I heard the news that the President and First Lady contracted coronavirus, the commentator’s very next sentence was speculation about U.S. vulnerability to our adversaries. What might Iran, China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran view as an open door to advance their agendas against us?
First, remember that we have a national security team that never sleeps. When you’re leading the cause of freedom on the globe, you don’t sleep. Cyber threats, disinformation campaigns, seeking territorial gain, you name it, our national security team is “on it.”
Despite the Intelligence department’s indiscretions that we know, there are plenty of officials who operate within the law. They devote their time to seeking and finding any slight changes in plans that our adversaries may have “up their sleeves.”
Likewise, our military is always on alert. No foreign soldier wants to be in a foxhole on the other side of an American soldier. We have a highly trained, highly capable military force composed of men and women who want to defend our freedom and our shores. They sign up for the job. That makes a big difference.
The President is sick, but not incapacitated. Totalitarian governments have trouble understanding our work ethic and our constitutional provisions for times like these. In other words, they don’t know how a government by, of, and for the people can be a superpower. They think, like in their governments, when the leader is sick, the nation is vulnerable. They grossly underestimate the resolve of the American people.
The U.S. election is days away. Our President may be sick, but our nation is not dependent on one person, one political party, or one ruling family. We the People of the United States are alive and well in this Constitutional Republic, ready to do whatever is needed.
Without getting into politics or naming and condemning personalities, do you have a concern that we may fall prey to our enemies during the next few weeks? If so, how do you think we should proceed?
This is Common Sense Civics and Citizenship.??
