VETERANS DAY 2021 -- THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

Honoring our troops on Veterans Day …

Let us remember that it was our senile Commander-in-Chief and the corrupt politicized military leadership that gave us a resounding defeat in Afghanistan that even surpasses our defeat in Viet Nam. What our soldiers won in battle, our politicians negotiated away. It is a bitch when an illegal alien receives more consideration and military benefits that do our soldiers.

Lest we not forget …

Jane Fonda, American Traitor …

As we go about our daily tasks, let us for a moment consider the service of Senator John McCain, a prisoner of war who suffered terribly at the hands of our enemy while just mere miles away, a far-left liberal, Jane Fonda, laughed and sat on an anti-aircraft gun as she called our American troops “war criminals."

Aside from visiting villages, hospitals, schools, and factories, Fonda also posed for pictures in which she was shown applauding North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners, was photographed peering into the sights of an NVA anti-aircraft artillery launcher and made ten propagandistic Tokyo Rose-like radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military
leaders as "war criminals." She also spoke with eight American POWs at a carefully arranged "press conference," POWs who had been tortured by their North Vietnamese captors to force them to meet with Fonda, deny they had been tortured, and decry the American war effort. <Source>

And an accounting which is not complete …

For some as yet unexplained reason, John McCain approved legislation that has kept Americans from getting a complete accounting of our MIAs from Viet Nam.

The legislation ensured that “… the Defense Department is not obligated to tell the public about prisoners believed alive in captivity and what efforts are being made to rescue them. It only has to notify the White House and the intelligence committees in the Senate and House. The committees are forbidden under law from releasing such information.” For those who wish to read an interesting article on McCain’s efforts to prevent a full and complete accounting of MIAs, it can be found at “ The War Secrets Sen. John McCain Hides: Former POW Fights Public Access To POW/MIA Files.”

Bottom line …

Our nation and each citizen owe an unpayable debt to those who risk life and limb to protect our right to prosper or protest in complete freedom from a totalitarian government.

  • If you see a soldier in uniform, thank them for their service – especially since it is completely voluntary. If you see a veteran down on his luck, extend a helping hand.
  • Do not let our people and our government forget the sacrifice made by our troops.
  • Do not let those who would denigrate and demean our military go unchallenged.
  • Do not let the media spin a story that is contemptuous of those who protect our freedom without pointing out that it may have been the actions of relatively few individuals involved and they do not represent the military.

And, no matter what the spin, you are not a private citizen exercising your “free speech rights” when you give aid and comfort to America’s enemies by making propaganda announcements --  you are a traitor.

Most of all, tell those in the far-left who are openly anti-military and anti-America where to step off. <insert strong language message here>

AMERICA UNDER THE DEMOCRATS: SLIP SLIDING AWAY

I find it unbelievable, unconscionable, and downright treasonous that the progressive communist democrats in the Biden Administration would do everything in their power to reverse the energy independence of our nation, cripple or kill the petroleum industry, including coal, natural gas, and hydroelectric power generation, to advance an unprovable hypothesis of global warming put forth by communists seeking political power and the destruction of the United States.

Pure bullshit from Obama’s cadre of communist puppeteers pulling Biden’s strings…

Biden Responds to Soaring Inflation, Orders Economic Council to ‘Reduce Energy Costs’

President Joe Biden says he’s directed the National Economic Council to focus on reducing energy costs for U.S. consumers following a Department of Labor report suggesting that inflation hit a three-decade high in October. “Today’s report shows an increase over last month. Inflation hurts Americans pocketbooks [sic], and reversing this trend is a top priority for me,” Biden said in a statement on Nov. 10. “The largest share of the increase in prices in this report is due to rising energy costs.”

The president said he directed his top economic aides to attempt to “further reduce these costs,” regarding energy prices. He also asked the Federal Trade Commission to deal with “market manipulation or price gouging in this sector.” <Source>

  • Point: The United States has ceded influence over the largest oil producers in Iraq to Iran.
  • Point: The United States has failed to sufficiently reassure Saudi Arabia against a soon-to-be nuclear Iran. We are now seeing Saudi Arabia turning toward China for possible protection and as their largest customer for oil. China is one of the three largest polluters globally and is unlikely to change its behavior based on demands by the United States and the United Nations. Oil might likely doom the use of the U.S. Dollar as the world’s reserve currency. And energy-driven inflation is upon us.

Saudi Arabia Turns Toward China

Doubts about the Biden administration’s reliability are ubiquitous and readily expressed. Saudi Arabia is edging East with no apologies. China is now Saudi Arabia’s largest trading partner because of Beijing’s thirst for Saudi oil. The kingdom buys weapons from China. The growing animosity over Taiwan and global trade unnerve Riyadh. The U.S habit of imposing sanctions on opponents and expecting allies to join is something Saudi Arabia seems determined to resist. “Don’t make us choose,” says a prominent Saudi minister in a sentiment echoed by many.

While the Biden administration pays lip service to partnership with Saudi Arabia, actions haven’t followed. The U.S. has largely cut sales of offensive weapons to Riyadh, pulled out the defensive Patriot missiles that protect the kingdom from attack, and thus far failed to enunciate any strategy for how to confront a nuclear Iran. Saudis believe an Iranian bomb is imminent. There also is grumbling here that the U.S. purports to want peace in Yemen but won’t act to interdict the flow of weapons from Iran to the Houthis. “Muddled” and “confused” are the words Saudi ministers use to describe U.S. Mideast policy. “Public pronouncements are fine but on the working level nothing happens,” says a Saudi foreign policy official.

As the world’s largest producer of fossil fuels, however, it is a favorite target of green activists who want an immediate end to investments in fossil fuel. President Biden, who has hamstrung U.S. production to please climate activists, now insists that the Saudis pump more oil to keep stateside gas prices low. “Hypocrisy,” say senior Saudis.  <Source>

  • Point: The recently-passed “infrastructure” bill is laden with pork and does little or nothing to harden our existing electric grid against an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) likely to cripple wide areas of the United States. Nor does it do much to protect existing infrastructure. The bill doubles down on unsustainable, unreliable, and higher-cost energy sources to please the environmentalists, the de-growthers, and the population control crowd. It is a gift to the unions and progressive communist democrat special interests who want to see America fail.

The Washington Times summed it up best.

A year into office, President Joe Biden has shown us that what he lacks in leadership, he makes up for in incompetence.  This is the result of voters so committed to voting against Donald Trump, that they supported a candidate who, on a good day, is ill-informed, ill-prepared, ill-motivated to lead the nation.  By just about every conceivable measure, the President lacks the capacity and competence to shepherd America through the challenges we face as a nation in these troubled times. <Source>

Bottom line…

They know what they are doing and are proceeding to affirmatively damage the United States.

  • Some know what they are doing and don’t care.
  • Some are following the advice of “ignorant” experts and academicians.
  • Some don’t know what they are doing and don’t care.
  • Many are looking for a political solution with good optics regardless of its outcome.

We are so screwed.
