I look at this country and I see too many veterans unable to reenter society because of their trauma from fighting these endless wars.

I look at this country and I see political prisoners like Julian Assange locked up for practicing honest journalism.

I look at this country and I see too many kids failing basic reading and math requirements.

I look at this country and see the necessities of life getting more expensive, and people being punished for saving money.

I look at this country and see problems that are painful, but solvable. That’s why I founded Bring Our Troops Home, to solve the biggest problem of all: the unconstitutional global empire that saps our resources and buries our sons and daughters.

But there are other people—who all just so happen to live within a few miles of the Potomac River—who turn their heads away from our problems here at home. No, instead they’re a lot more interested in solving “problems” far away. Sometimes very far away.

Maybe they think this makes them charitable, or “worldly” instead of provincial. But these globalists definitely prefer to meddle in countries they don’t live and have no familial connection to than to bother helping their fellow Americans.

Take for instance Viktor Orban’s Hungary.

Prime Minister Orban and his Fidesz Party have ruled the small, Central European nation since 2010. Winning larger and larger majorities, Orban made changes to the Constitution and has promoted what he calls “illiberalism,” with a focus on promoting Christianity in the public space, cracking down on foreign funding of NGOs (like those of George Soros), and prioritizing the national interest of Hungarians.

In effect, that means Hungary has refused further admission of economic migrants (and been subsequently sanctioned by the European Union) and walked a balance of neutrality between the West and Russia since the latter’s invasion of Ukraine.

Earlier this year, Obama-Biden apparatchik Samantha Power visited Hungary to bring attention to progressive complaints about their system of government. Power previously served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and is currently head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the soft power arm of the DC empire.

Previously, Samantha Power’s biggest “success” was Libya, when in 2011 NATO intervention left that country decapitated, devastated, and in a permanent civil war. Now her preference is to use American taxpayer money to manipulate foreign elections, propagandize foreign peoples, and engineer their lives to better suit the ideas of her Democratic Party.

Their goal in a country like Hungary is a color revolution, funded and planned by DC using non-profit cutouts as tools for implementation. We’ve done it numerous times in Eastern Europe, including in 2014 in Ukraine which precipitated the current crisis.

The end result they’re after is a world where every country and place is a perfect replication of modern American progressivism, including full abortion access, gay marriage, transgenderism, and fourth-wave feminism. Sounds “diverse,” doesn’t it?

But in reality, their phony “humanitarianism” leads to riots in the streets, internal division, and the imposition of values fundamentally disagreeable to the people who live there.

It’s colonialism by any other name.

For my part, I don’t give a damn what kind of government Hungary has. I only care that I have a government that follows the law and prioritizes its citizens.

That’s why I’m America First, and these assortment of neocons, globalists, and “humanitarian interventionists” are frauds, criminals, and worse.

If places like Hungary and Uganda want to be governed conservatively and other places like Norway and Venezuela want to be governed by the Left, that’s their business.

My business is doing my duty to my country and passing Defend the Guard legislation so we can bring our troops home from this forever war abroad. That’s a real solution to help real Americans.

So if you’re sick of this chronic interventionism, sick of telling other people how they should run their countries, and sick of globalists who care a lot more about places they’ve never been than places they live, then you belong in the movement to defend the constitutional integrity of our National Guard. Let’s keep our National Guard out of undeclared wars, and let’s keep our noses out of other nation’s business.
