Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

Four U.S. service members were killed in Niger on October 4. Army Col. Mark R. Cheadle said “there was no overhead armed air cover during the engagement” but that “our allies the French were very quick to respond with their assets immediately upon notification that it was needed.” It is the first time American forces have been killed and wounded in combat in the country, the Pentagon said. The attacks were blamed on terrorists.

This is a disaster.

Speaking of disasters, did you know that President Trump met with Henry Kissinger in the Oval Office on October 10? Read the official transcript here.

As I have previously reported, Kissinger in 2009 insisted that President Obama could create a New World Order and that he had a good foreign policy team. He made these comments on CNBC during a “celebration” of 30 years of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and China.

Bill Gertz’s book, The China Threat, explained how Kissinger “played the key role” in the talks that led President Nixon in 1972 to establish informal ties with China, that ultimately led to formal diplomatic relations in 1979. Kissinger insisted that China had abandoned communism, and was no longer a threat.

He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 for his work on the so-called Vietnam Peace Accords that ultimately resulted in a communist takeover of Vietnam and the genocide in neighboring Cambodia, after a liberal U.S. Congress voted to defund the anti-communist war effort. The communist North Vietnamese had been armed by China and the Soviet Union.

Kissinger wrote the foreword to the 2002 book, The New Russian Diplomacy, by Russian official Igor S. Ivanov, in which Kissinger discussed how Russia and the U.S. “have a rare opportunity to work together in building a new international system.”

Kissinger represents The Swamp. Yet there he was in the White House.

Kissinger has been consistently wrong about world events, and his mistakes have already cost the United States dearly. Our enemies and adversaries are on the march.

I expect better from Trump.

What are we doing in Niger without American back-up? Why do we have to depend on the French to rescue our soldiers?

Remember this line from Trump’s “America First” speech to the United Nations:

I want to salute the work of the United Nations in seeking to address the problems that cause people to flee from their homes. The United Nations and African Union led peacekeeping missions to have invaluable contributions in stabilizing conflicts in Africa.
