Presumed president-elect Joe Biden has made one thing clear above all others in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election. From Donald Trump’s White House — including furniture, carpeting, and even doorknobs — to his policies, executive orders, and his very presidency itself, Biden intends to erase as much of it as he can. Hell, if Democrats had their druthers, they’d erase all-things Trump from the history books, as well.
Near the top of Biden’s wishlist, if not #1, is Trump’s “America First” policy.
While Trump and tens of millions of freedom-loving patriots across the country view “Make America Great Again” as a rallying call to restore the America envisioned by the Founding Fathers, Joe Biden and Democrats – along with their ever-sycophantic liberal media sock puppets — view the “Trump Doctrine” of “America First” as racist, bigoted and xenophobic.
But here’s the issue.
Unleashed patriotism is a stubborn thing. Thank God. Unbridled love of country and a belief in something good, something nobler and much larger than oneself, is a hard thing to take away. A hard thing to put back in the toothpaste tube once it’s out. For that reason and others, Ric Grenell, former acting director of national intelligence under President Trump, affirms that support for Trump’s “America First” foreign policy cannot be erased.

During an interview with Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak on SiriusXM’s “Breitbart News Sunday,” as reported by Breitbart News, Grenell told the host that despite any future efforts by a future President Biden, and the Democrats, regardless of how hard they try, they will fail. The debate is over; that ship has sailed.
“Let’s just be honest, the American First policy and the America First agenda that Donald Trump has unleashed is never going back to the bottle. We have won the debate on putting America first.
“No matter what [President-elect] Joe Biden or any future president does, they are not going to be able to put America second without a huge cry from the American people. “
Amen, brother Ric — preach it.
In his view, Grenell told Pollak, foreign policy has never been fully embraced or understood by the American people. As a result, he said, a majority of Americans don’t trust the bureaucrats and so-called “Deep State” operatives who make foreign policy decisions “in secrecy,” while spending billions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer money as they go about their “clandestine operations.”
“Foreign policy has always been one of those things that the American people have not fully embraced, or understood, or wanted to get into the details of for a variety of reasons. I think the American people are very smart, but sometimes they are too busy to get to know every single detail of what the State Department is doing.”
As a result, Grenell explained, “State Department types, other bureaucrats, and foreign policy experts have taken advantage of the public’s perceived disinterest.
“The State Department types — many bureaucrats, and I would say foreign policy experts in Washington — have taken advantage of the American people in that they go out and make these policies around the world, spend the American people’s money, and don’t ever come back to talk about what the American people are paying for, or what they’re doing around the world.”
“What Donald Trump has done with pushing the America First agenda is never going to cease,” added Grenell. “Future presidents may try to couch it a little bit differently, or they may try to roll it back, but they are going to be unable to do that.”
Grenell contrasted American foreign policy under Trump with that of past presidents.
“The American people now see that their money must be spent wisely, including at the State Department, including for foreign policy. Experts in Washington have controlled and monopolized the spending, and tried to pretend like they’re smarter than everybody and really gone down the path of being a globalist for America.
“Those days are over. The American people are much more engaged now because of Donald Trump, and they’re going to expect their government to put America first. I’m really proud of President Trump.
He is somebody who doesn’t send out press releases when he hires somebody about irrelevant characteristics that they have. He’s somebody who doesn’t keep lists. He doesn’t want to play this identity politics game, and thank God, because it’s really what I think the gay community has been asking for for a very long time.”
On a personal note, I have tremendous respect for Ric Grenell. I first became familiar with him “back in the day” on Fox News — in the middle of the night — shortly after Greg Gutfeld went to work for Fox as the anchor of a new program called “Red Eye,” which again, was on at like 3:00 a.m.
A week or so ago, I wrote a short post on Facebook in which I suggested that Grenell is more than worthy to run for president in 2024. I have no idea if he’s the least bit interested in doing so, but I do know how delightful it would be to force the Democrats into a box where they would be forced to attack “the gay guy.” And of course, they would do just that.
As “The Rush Limbaugh Show” long-time producer Bo Snerdley — who is black, by the way — recently pointed out, Democrats lauded Pete Butiegeg as the first “openly gay Cabinet member, while “whitewashing” Ric Grenell.
Like Donald Trump, Ric Grenell is to be “canceled” by the Left, America.

As is the case with Blacks, women, Hispanics, Muslims, and every other disparate group “owned” by the hypocritical Democrat Party, members of the LGBTQ community are required to live on the Liberal Plantation™ — based solely on their sexual preferences. Yeah, Mazie Hirono, preferences. Those who refuse to obey are to be castigated, deemed irrelevant, and completely destroyed, if possible.
I have a strong feeling Ric Grenell would be more than capable of handling Democrat hypocrisy just fine — and then some.
