Will nationalism or globalism define America’s Future?
By David Schnittger
One of the greatest Western movies of all time is the 1952 classic, “High Noon,” starring Gary Cooper. The movie is set in 1870 Hadleyville, with Gary Cooper playing the town Marshall, Will Kane. The rising action begins with Will’s marriage to a pretty Quaker named Amy Fowler. To please Amy, Will resigns his post immediately after the wedding ceremony. Will is troubled because the new Marshall has not arrived to take his place. Suddenly, the stationmaster rushes in with the terrible news that Frank Miller, a wild outlaw whom Will had arrested for murder five years earlier, recently received pardon and is due to arrive in Hadleyville on the noon train. Miller’s outlaw gang have ridden to the station and are awaiting Miller’s arrival.
At the urging of the wedding guests, Will and Amy leave town immediately, but after only a few moments on the road, Will turns the wagon around and heads back. “I expect he’ll come looking for me,” Will replies when Amy asks for an explanation. Will’s young wife begs him to leave with her, and he protests that he has never run from anyone. Will returns to town to make plans for the town’s defense. Despite all of his efforts, no one agrees to stand with Will. He must face the outlaws down by himself at high noon. I will not spoil this dramatic western by revealing the outcome, but no one can dispute the courage of the character Gary Cooper portrays in standing up to the outlaws alone at high noon. This is precisely the position Donald Trump appears to be in as 2019 is shaping up to be high noon for America. America’s high noon appears to be playing out in three arenas.
Presently, there is a Federal government shutdown, as President Trump has rejected a budget that does not include the five billion dollars he has requested to build a wall on our southern border. The Democrat leaders in Congress do NOT want to budge on this and are presently unwilling to negotiate. This amount is minuscule in relation to the overall budget of over 3.7 trillion dollars. Plus, illegal aliens cost the government over 285 billion dollars a year in social services such as education, welfare and prison costs. This does not include the human cost of the crimes illegal aliens commit against American citizens. There is also the hidden cost of depressed wages for middle class Americans as they are forced to compete with low cost illegal alien wage earners. Meanwhile, wave after wave of illegal immigrants are heading for our southern border.
On top of that, is the hidden truth the illegal immigrants are bringing a wave of hepatitis, tuberculosis and HIV to America. Additionally, migrants are spreading malaria, yellow fever, diphhtheria, dengue, chikunguny and measles, diseases that have been unknown in the US in recent years.
President Trump realizes that without secure borders, there is no country. This is exactly the globalist plan that we see being activated in many western countries, resulting in skyrocketing crime and the destruction of western cultures. This is a “high noon” issue that President Trump must face in 2019.
