– A letter from CNJ Publisher Elaine Beck.
With the Democratic Party welcoming socialists, not condemning riots in our cities, protecting the unborn, a threat against freedom of speech from Big Tech — our historic way of life is threatened again after the fraudulent 2020 election.
President Donald J. Trump gave American Christians a voice among the smug Republican Party and Democrat establishment in Washington, D.C. He’s been one of the most effective leaders in the country by keeping campaign promises, which is an anomaly.
Trump is the most pro-life presidents in history, following in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush to protect life’s sanctity. On January 19, 2018, President Trump became the first President to address the March for Life rally live via satellite. Within a week of taking office, President Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which protects $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry and its advocates.
Trump has gotten two historic peace deals done as well as started conversations to pursue a lasting peace with North Korea. He has put pressure on China and helped defeat the ISIS caliphate. He was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize after brokering the historic Israel-UAE peace accords. A nomination that was accompanied by not one, but two additional nominations. President Trump has done more to restore America’s relationship with Israel than in previous administrations. After creating a historic peace agreement between the UAE and Israel, Trump made the deal official on September 15, 2020 stating it’s the “Dawn of a new Middle East.” Israel, Bahrain and the UAE signed a trilateral document, in addition to the bilateral agreement called the “Abraham Accords.” The “Abraham Accords” peace agreement was signed in August and was brokered by the US. It represents the three parties of Christianity, Abrahamian religions Islam and Judaism. Swedish member of parliament Magnus Jacobsson also nominated Trump for brokering a landmark agreement between Serbia and Kosovo. And in Jerusalem, there is now an embassy where there were only promises before. Trump followed through on that pledge.
For America, the American military was rebuilt under his administration, and returned in protecting the nation’s interests — not foreign countries. “In 2017, it would increase spending on readiness. In 2018 it would sustain funding for readiness—training, maintenance, etc.—while filling “holes” in the military posture such as inadequate stocks of precision munitions,” national security expert Loren Thompson wrote. The Obama Administration utterly failed to anticipate Russia’s military resurgence, the rise of ISIS.
The Trump administration passed important reforms in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This would include more accountability for VA employees and increased health care choice for veterans.
For the economy, Trump tax cuts of 2017 helped reduce excessive government regulations on businesses. “An estimated 25,000 pages of regulations have been canceled, resulting in a savings of $3,100 per household per year.”
Trump protected freedom of religion and of free speech.
On May 4, 2017, the president signed an executive order to enhance religious freedom and freedom of speech greatly. This would ensure that religious institutions may freely exercise their First Amendment right to support and advocate for candidates and causes in line with their values. This guaranteed that religious Americans and their organizations, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, would not be forced to choose between violating their religious beliefs by complying with Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate or shutting their doors. He released a 25-page memorandum detailing protections for religious liberty on October 6, 2017. In 2018, the Trump administration took a stand for international religious freedom by placing Pakistan on a “Special Watch List” for severe violations of religious freedom and designated 10 others as countries of particular concern.
Thank you, Mr. President, for giving a voice to the voiceless and to millions of disenfranchised voters and supporters. Thank you for taking the brunt from the far-left — defending the little man against the Washington, D.C. swamp. We thank you for your work. We thank your accomplishments in working for the American people.
