“When Willing To Die For Your Country Is No Longer Enough.”

 

I do not like the word “offended.”  I don’t believe in it because it gives too much power to the person trying to degrade you, and as a former Military Officer who served in combat, I find it impossible to be offended.  So when people say that they are offended that the new regime is vetting National Guard troops, I shake my head, because I believe the word they are looking for is disgusted.

To vet National Guard Troops for inauguration detail is to admit that the new regime doesn’t trust in the tradition of the military, nor does it have any idea what the Military or its personnel are about. Everyone who joins the military is different;  they come from different backgrounds, have different life experiences, different fears, and different political beliefs.  The one thing they all share is a willingness to get their head blown off to serve their country that they love.

The men and women who are being vetted for the inauguration detail are essentially being told that their willingness to sacrifice their lives for their country is no longer enough; they also need to give up the one piece of individuality they are allowed to keep when they put on the uniform; their private opinion.

Throughout our history, proud American soldiers fought side by side against our nation’s foes, and never once was it required that they thought a certain way in order to fulfill their duty.  Soldiers of all political stripes crossed the Delaware on Christmas, stormed Normandy, liberated Dachau… they endured the harshest conditions in the name of defending their country, from the very beginning until this very day, and they never asked for anything in return.

They felt the sadness and isolation that comes with being thousands of miles away from everything they have ever known, wondering if people are thinking of them or just going on with their lives like normal. They have been shot at and blown up; some have been killed or seriously injured.  Some lost limbs, some lost sight, some watched as their best friend was consumed by an enemy explosion.

I can guarantee you that every person who has ever put on the uniform has found themselves in situations they didn’t want to be in, following orders from someone they didn’t care for or agree with, but they did it anyway. That’s the difference between them and the left;  the left operates 100% on emotion.  The idea of protecting a leader that they don’t agree with is unreasonable and vile in their minds.  There’s no greater good, there’s no concept of duty, there’s no concept of respect for our country; it’s all about their feelings.  If said leader said something to hurt their feelings, they see no reason to protect them.  The opposite is true for our men and women in uniform, and that’s what makes them special. That is why they are willing to lose their lives and subject themselves to misery and loneliness and danger. They don’t give a damn about whether or not they share the same political opinions with their leaders, all they care about is the mission at hand.

So while the leftists these days will find themselves overwhelmed by the idea of protecting a leader with differing opinions, retreating to a safe space where they can stew in their hate and be appalled that another human being has the audacity to think differently, the American soldier will put any and all personal feelings aside, and accomplish their mission to the best of their ability.

The American soldier knows that their feelings are insignificant when put up against the importance of the mission.  So if you want to yank American heroes away from a mission because they don’t think a certain way, you are revealing a sad ignorance of the Military and its soldiers.  The National Guardsman relieved of inauguration duty won’t retreat to a safe space; they won’t run to social media and cry about how unfair it is, and they probably won’t give it a second thought;  They will go home with their heads held high, and prepare for the next mission.

It is a serious question for the next four months. Who do we want answering the phone at 2 A.M.

PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener makes the case that Harris should invoke the 25th Amendment so we don’t have a doddering fool trying to wake up to save America. Harris with her faculties is better than Joe without them, and it is Obama and his crew making decisions anyway.

AND… He tells us why it doesn’t give Kamala any more chance of beating Donald Trump… Watch below:

Will You Take Action to Assure GOP Victory on November 5?

In less than 17 weeks, the GOP will take back the White House, and hopefully the Senate and House, and begin to restore America. Or, we’ll face a gargantuan nightmare that will all but seal the fate of this nation. Do not be fooled by Joe Biden’s defiance of those calling for him to withdraw. Any Democrat challenger will be a danger to us because the DEMOCRATS WILL CHEAT IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS.

Time is of the essence. While being informed is wonderful, taking action is paramount. What exactly will you do to ensure that we achieve victory? It is no longer sufficient to be a concerned bystander.

No End to the Left’s Destruction

Every day when you log on to news sites, you are flabbergasted by the degree to which the radical Left continues to impose its civilization destroying policies, programs, and activities on the rest of us. There is no end game for the Left, no bottom, and no limits to their mass insanity.

Most recently, we have learned of a professional couple who was greeted at 6 a.m. by armed FBI agents banging on their door to arrest them for having the temerity of stepping into the Capitol on January 6, for 12 minutes, ushered in by Capitol guards. We have witnessed the unending persecution and prosecution of Donald Trump over non-crimes that have been concocted in unison and are part of an overall strategy emanating from the White House.

We have witnessed corrupt district attorneys, corrupt prosecutors, and a corrupt press. Donald Trump is merely the bellwether. All other Republican politicians will be fair game from here on out, and if we lose the election in November, with little or no recourse. One by one, the maniacal Left will quash dissent in ways that perhaps we currently cannot imagine.

The Left is Maniacal

The logical outcome to having the Left predominate in all areas of society is a totalitarian regime. Don’t discount this scenario. As Leftists ultimately do everywhere, they demand compliance. Thought control is their desired form of servitude. For those who do not comply, execution is not out of the question. Like radical Islam, we’re dealing with a malevolent genie that has escaped bottle, has no intention of ever subsiding, and wants everyone to either totally capitulate, or be imprisoned, deported, or terminated.

There will be no effective way to dismantle the maniacal leftist machine if Joe Biden is re-elected, he continues to be the puppet of Obama and far Leftists, and the border continues to be flooded with illegals — until Democrats have congressional representation that steadfastly insures a permanent majority. At that juncture, they will pack the Supreme Court. They will end the Electoral College. They will ramp up gender dysphoria opportunities wherever they might lie.

They will continue to show poor judgment and ridiculous weakness on the world stage. They will kowtow to China on a wide spectrum of issues. They will embolden our enemies to the point where such enemies are ready to pick apart America. This is not hyperbole and is all too likely.

Nothing here is beyond the bounds of possibility and with each passing week becomes more likely for the distant if not foreseeable future. In a sentence, we simply must win in November. No alternative will suffice.

All of Us

All of which leads to the point that every single person voting Republican needs to decide now, how they will lend support to the cause. In what ways will you participate? How will you volunteer, where, when and for what duration? Will you donate money? Who will you influence to vote GOP?

How will you support your candidates locally, regionally, and nationally? How are you going to impact others? It would not be sufficient to say, “I was busy,” or “I felt we had an overwhelming majority.” This approach is gambling with the future of our nation, the future of our communities, and the future of our families.

If we are to win by an overwhelming majority, let us each assure one another that we did everything we could to make sure that that is the result. To do less is to simply take a child-like approach to what is perhaps the most eventful year since 1776, 1812, 1861, 1941, 1968, and 2001. There will be no palatable tomorrow if we lose in November.
