“North Korea” – Mr. Virtual President at a Press Conference

“Peace through strength.”

Maybe no other phrase more embodies Ronald Reagan. That he believed so thoroughly in this concept was what made it so powerful. Far from being an out-of-control cowboy, Reagan was being utterly reasonable: make sure the world’s bullies understand that not only CAN you wipe them off the face of the Earth, but you have the conviction to do just that, IF they don’t behave accordingly.ronald-reagan

His clarity on this subject was echoed by the recently deceased Margaret Thatcher, who along with Reagan formed a solid wall of willpower which ultimately toppled the Soviet Union.

Oh, that we had such leadership today.

Because today, our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us. And why should they? We behave more like Chamberlains than freedom’s Champions: abandoning a newly freed Iraq, ignoring the opportunities to assist the oppressed populace in Iran, and barely paying lip service to our embassy in Benghazi’s destruction.

Should anyone be surprised that rogue states like North Korea seek to exploit our apparent lack of resolve?

v-potus-headerThat’s why Bill Whittle’s most recent “Mr. Virtual President” clip is both timely and important. Set in a virtual press conference, the “MVP” speaks as I believe Reagan or Thatcher would have, declaring that uncalled-for aggression is not only unacceptable, but that it will be dealt with swiftly …and terribly.


Throughout history, appeasement has only served to embolden bad behavior. Let’s hope that we don’t need to suffer the full cost of learning that lesson yet again.


As always, if you enjoyed this edition of his series, you can find all of Bill’s “MVP” videos here.

    It is too bad that none of our politicians have the balls of our virtual president. There was a time when they had them!
