“There is a tide in the affairs of men,
which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.”
The speech and the Prime Minister’s appearance have generated a political firestorm. The point of the Nuttle Report this week is not to discuss the pros and cons of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s remarks, but to discuss what it means to you individually as an American.
I did not start the Nuttle Report just to be another commentator on current events. I started it to engage individuals in a discussion about what they want for the future of their country in policy and leadership. It is time to start a new movement in the United States that demands response from our leaders and solutions to the problems facing our country today. Many people remark to me that they do not like the course our country is traveling. But they say, “What can I do about it? I’m just one individual.” There are two things that every American can do to counter the feeling that our country is on the wrong track. First, you can simply define, in part using this report, your own position in your own words what you believe. And then take possession of your position by stating, “This is what I believe.” Second, you can join to produce the most powerful political tool that history has ever known – a people’s movement. It’s important to remember that a majority of our leaders are not opposed to taking the country in another direction. They simply don’t know what direction to take. If we will express succinctly, clearly, and cogently, the simple truths of human dignity and liberty, they will follow us.
It is time to take action! It is our intention to prepare you to be able to not only participate in the debate and discussion of the 2016 Presidential campaign, but to lead it. The Nuttle Report will be filled with information that you need to know to prepare you for the 2016 Presidential election.
What is at stake is the future of our country and the world as we know it today. The nation state of Israel is one of our closest allies in the world. It is by far our number one ally in the Middle East. To negotiate a political deal with an adversary that has direct and immediate impact on a very close friend, without that friend’s permission, is not only a betrayal of our friend, but it is not in the best interest of our own foreign policy. To believe that involving other European powers is sufficient to justify the process, as many Democratic members of Congress said today in their rebuttal to the Prime Minister’s speech, is the further exercise of implementing foreign policy without consistency or a central strategic plan.
The Nuttle Report is my opinion and it is based on premises of principles that bind us. Those principles are set out at the New Horizon Council (www.newhorizoncouncil.com). At that site, we lay the foundation for a very simple purpose in our foreign policy: rule of law, due process, free & independent courts, a free press, and transparency. Israel embraces all of these principles, Iran none of them. This simple fact should carry some weight in our foreign policy decisions. Iran has not even recognized the right of Israel to exist. That might be a reasonable starting point. My question is, at what end do we negotiate with Iran without a partnership with Israel? It is in violation of our own purpose as a world power.
It is critical that we as individuals and as citizens of the greatest country on earth, the United States of America, state our opinion as to what type of world order we want. Is it OK for Iran to violate the common decency dictated by the community of nations? And if your answer is that what we want is peace, I do too, but peace in a world of civil order. Stating what you want for your children to inherit as a society, I would submit to you, is one of our mandates as citizens of the human race.
In future Nuttle Reports I will discuss world economics, to include Greece, China and Russia, and what their economic situation means to you individually. We will elaborate on how actions taken in those countries impact the USA’s economy, but more importantly, on how they impact your individual state and its ability to provide services in health care, education, infrastructure, and law & order.
We will also discuss world political events and geopolitics, and what this means to cultural diversity and cultural identity. We will have conversation about how to coordinate the State Department, national defense, and the Treasury, for the advancement of a stable world order, not just militarily or religiously, but also economically. In the future, your state’s and city’s ability to provide services, and your ability to find a job and provide for your family, will partly be based on world and national events. The Internet, regardless of how it’s regulated, will drive us closer together as peoples of the world. And world events will have universal impact.
I ask you to join me in a new dialog for a new movement to pursue a rising sun in America -- an America that stands on principle and leads the world in the opportunity to pursue prosperity.
I ask you to take the steps to define your belief on principles that bind us and declare them to your children and to your sphere of influence. You thereby will have taken the one lever of power that you have to influence your country’s leadership by adding your voice to the movement. Your country and your children will thank you for it. They will thank you for saying, “My name is ….., and this is what I believe.”
A flood is coming. It looks destructive. In the affairs of men, it can lead on to fortune.
My name is Marc Nuttle and this is what I believe.
What do you believe?
