PREVIEW: “America First”


Quote of the Week:

“In a composite Nation like ours, made up of almost every variety of the human family, there should be, as before the Law, no rich, no poor, no high, no low, no black, no white, but one country, one citizenship equal rights and a common destiny for all.
A government that cannot or does not protect the humblest citizen in his right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, should be reformed or overthrown, without delay.”

– Frederick Douglass


“America First”: The Proper Definition – Ken’s Thought of the Week

Threat Analyst Ken Abramowitz is author of “The Multifront War

Editor: Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, President, American Center for Democracy (ACD)


President Trump calls for an “America First” policy to guide decision-making at home and abroad. However, because he failed to clarify his definition of this controversial slogan, the globalist Democrats have accused him of being an isolationist.

We know he wants to “Make America Great Again,” which could be achieved when a strong America is again the Superpower in the world.Therefore, President Trump’s “America First” clearly differs from President Woodrow Wilson’s 1916 declaration, which was later adopted by the isolationist America First Committee, that called for non-intervention in foreign wars. That non-interventionist policy caused the US to be surprised by Germany’s attacks in Europe and by Japan’s aggression in the Far East. It left America unprepared for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. So, on December 7, 1941, the US was forced to join World War II unprepared.

Save The West defines “America First” according to the Declaration of Independence that calls for the government to protect the “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” of all its citizens, as our guide.

To enable the protection of Life we should:

1. Properly fund the military so we can confront our Chinese, Russian, and Iranian enemies simultaneously. Increase national security spending by $200 billion.

2. Accelerate annual defense spending from 4% to 10%, and fix the recruitment deficit.

3. Forbid woke policies in the military.

4. Accelerate military innovation and weapons production, both  defensive and offensive.

5. Properly fund local police.

6. Defund the UN and its corrupt agencies.

7. Deport 15 million illegal migrants.

8. Close the Northern and Southern borders.

9. Oppose Democrat-sponsored infanticide (third-semester abortion).

10. Encourage regime change in Islamist regimes, such as Iran and Qatar.

To enable the protection of Liberty, we should:

1. Protect Freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, and federalism, as guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.

2. Encourage universal school choice, on a state level.

3. Protect Jews & Christians, domestically and abroad.

4. Reform the evil foreign ideologies that permeate public schools and universities.

5. Encourage electoral reform, state by state, to upgrade integrity.

6. Properly manage a cultural war by outlawing: CRT, CGT, DEI, ESG, and antisemitism.

Some segments of the population and their politicians might prefer an isolationist America First. Others, like Save the West, prefer a safe, prosperous America, with a proper mix of short term and long term strategies to protect the people and make life difficult for our enemies.

The US government is responsible for protecting our country for now and future generations from all enemies, foreign and domestic. After all, our key adversaries are dictatorships with long-term planning, who are determined to undermine and eventually take over democratic countries.

In contrast, democracies are usually short-term-oriented, as many voters seek instant gratification. The best US leaders must provide for both the population’s short-term desires and the country’s long-term needs. Otherwise, we can fall into the tragedies of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. We have had enough of short-term thinking!

To enable the pursuit of Happiness, we should:

1. Cut regulations whenever reasonable and possible.

2. Cut the annual budget deficit from $2 trillion to a maximum of $1 trillion.

3. Repeal 100% of Biden’s executive orders.

4. Develop all forms of energy.

5. Incentivize traditional marriage and family formation through education and tax incentives.

6. Cut capital gains tax rate to 5% for bold investors who take the extra risk of investing in venture capital funds.

7. Target an annual GDP growth of 3-4%.

8. Remove the tax-exempt status of politically oriented NGOs and colleges.

A proper America First policy would protect current and future generations by combining sensible short-term and long-term strategies to ensure the protection of the American people and the country’s traditional values.
