Gen. Vallely: Trump Has a ‘Good Team,’ ‘Nobody’s Going to Bully America Anymore’

President-elect Donald Trump has assembled a “good team” to manage the nation’s cybersecurity against hacking attacks from Russia or China, according to retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely.

In an interview Monday with “Newsmax Prime” host J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV, Vallely, the chairman of Stand Up America, said Trump is right to deal with both U.S. adversaries from a position of strength.

“They have to know you’re strong and not weak and when they know that, you can cut a hell of a deal with the Russians, with China, and all the rest out there who may be seen to be our adversaries,” he said.

“I’m very elated we’re going to have a very strong team and nobody’s going to bully America anymore. We’re not going to take it anymore, America first, and that’s what it’s all about, standing up for us, our citizens, and the great traditions we have in the United States.”

Vallely said in a meeting with Trump six weeks ago along with 200 other officers, “cyber security was the top issue that he discussed with us.”

“So with [Trump’s choice for national security adviser] Gen. [Michael] Flynn in there, who’s on top of things I can tell you as far as cyber security and as far as intelligence gathering and intelligence protection, they’ve got a good team.”

Vallely added that politically motivated hacking “has been going on for several months now and I have seen no absolute proof that the Russians are guilty of anything at this point.”

He said the Chinese have also been “trying to get into our data.”

“It’s cyber warfare without a doubt — but at the same time we’re fighting ISIS and other enemies of the United States,” he added. “So this is why it takes  a good, solid team to turn this country around and get us strong again so we don’t have to keep worrying about all of this stuff continually and making us look like we’re vulnerable each and every day, which in many cases we are.”

Vallely also hit the hyper-critical assessment of ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a possible secretary of state candidate, over his business dealings with Russia.

“I’ve met with the Russians twice in the last year and I’ve said repeatedly that we’re not getting anything solved in Europe or the Middle East, even from an energy standpoint, until we can work with the Russians to solve some of these things,” he declared. “The name calling and the chastisement of some of these people may or may not be a valid at all.”

“I found the Russians very appealing to negotiate, they want to reach back to the United States, they want to work things out,” he said. “What better person than Rex Tillerson when it comes to energy or dealing and making a deal over there?

“We can deal with them from a position of strength, I would think.”

MG Paul Vallely, U.S. Army (ret.) speaks at EMET: “Emerging Threats Out of The Middle East”




The Endowment for Middle East Truth

Founded in 2005, The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is a Washington, D.C. based think tank and policy center with an unabashedly pro-America and pro-Israel stance. EMET (which means truth in Hebrew) prides itself on challenging the falsehoods and misrepresentations that abound in U.S. Middle East policy. As a tax-exempt 501(C) 3 Non-Profit organization we work to educate policy-makers by providing pertinent information to Senators and Members of Congress to make informed decisions that will improve American security and the security of America’s ally, Israel. EMET earned its reputation as the “go-to-people” on Capitol Hill for Senators and Members of Congress who understand the importance of a strong and secure America, and a strong American-Israeli alliance against the forces of radical Islam and terror.


EMET Mission

EMET provides research and analysis which challenges misrepresentations and never bows to political correctness. EMET develops close working relationships with Senators and Members of Congress, and provides them with the information and analysis they need, while combating efforts by other interest groups to influence Congress with misrepresentations about Israel and the Middle East. EMET provides fact-based briefings to Senators, Members of Congress, their staff, and the general public.

Bringing Issues To Light

EMET was educating Congress on the Palestinian Authority’s blatant and repeated violations of the Oslo Accords while other organizations were busy drawing up detailed maps of the next territory Israel should surrender in the failed “Land-for-Peace” paradigm. EMET was the first organization to call for an end to military aid to Egypt during the chaos of the Arab Spring, while other Pro-Israel groups were lobbying for MORE weapons and MORE money for the increasingly radicalized and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egyptian Government. EMET was the first organization to confront the failure of the Department of Justice to investigate, indict and extradite Palestinian terrorists who have slain or injured American citizens, despite federal laws which demand such efforts. We’re working with Congress right now to bring oversight to the DOJ, and insure that all Americans receive the justice they deserve.


“Geostrategic Analysis of the Middle East” Panel at “Emerging Threats Out of the Middle East”



Washington, D.C. – December 5, 2016 EMET hosted its inaugural DC Conference titled “Emerging Threats Out of the Middle East: The Impact on a New Administration” where we awarded Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Rep. Eliot Engel (D- NY) with the first ever “Winston Churchill Awards for Moral Integrity.” The day also consisted of two panel discussions ranging from a geostrategic analysis of the Middle East to the threat from Iran & Hezbollah in Latin America. The purpose of the conference was to offer policy suggestions for the incoming Trump Administration in regards to the security of America and to the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Paul Vallely on James Mattis: ‘He’s Going to Be the Chief Warrior’

Newsmax TV’s “Newsmax Prime”

President-elect Donald Trump is making an excellent choice in retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis as Defense Secretary because “he’s going to be the chief warrior at the Pentagon,” retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely told Newsmax TV on Friday.

“It is about time we put somebody in there while we’re at war who understands victory, strategy, tactics — what has to be done to bring victory to America against its enemies, particularly ISIS,” Vallely, chairman of Stand Up America, told “Newsmax Prime” host J.D. Hayworth.

Vallely said that he was among former 200 military officials who met recently with Trump — and part of their advice was to “get away from political correctness.”

“If we have to say it’s ‘Islamic radicalism,’ ‘jihad,’ that we’re at war with, then we need to say that,” he told Hayworth. “We’re going to bring reality back to the Pentagon again and victory for the American people.”
