Dammit…

If this is true, Milley SHOULD be court martialed and sent to prison…

In a jaw-dropping report, it’s been revealed that Milley pledged to the Chinese military to commit treason in order to undermine Donald Trump. The move to alert the CCP would have taken place via a secret backchannel set up by Milley and not sanctioned by the White House.

Full article, HERE.

Treason? Sure as hell sounds like it to me. How many troops was he willing to sacrifice with his ‘heads up’???

And the other question is, if it’s true, WHY did they set on this story??? Are they complicit???

Western snippet…

Stick a fork in this one, it’s DONE!!!

Well, except for reads and editing… And a cover…

One last snippet from the western novella. As always, comments and recommendations appreciated!

Time Flies

Winter in camp was drudgery, broken only by the routine of hunting for meat. Danny, Ramirez, and Viktor did most of the hunting, going further and further afield to find deer and, once, a stray buffalo. Danny found a single steer one day, without a brand. It took him all day to haze it back to camp, but he didn’t have to hunt for the next two weeks after that.

Sergeant Lewin found out Danny could cipher, and put him to work helping maintain the camp’s supplies, which allowed Danny to occasionally get to Taylorsville.

One day, he rode in, list in his vest pocket, and a letter with a voucher to mail to Captain Lyon to deduct eighty dollars from the paymaster. It had been spitting snow all morning, and Danny made for the café. Stepping inside, he waved to Hazel and found a seat at the end of an empty bench. She brought a cup of coffee over and said, “Merry Christmas, Danny. Surprised to see you in here.”

He chuckled. “Christmas? Damn, I didn’t realize it. Merry Christmas, Mizz Hazel.” He pulled out Lewin’s list and waved it at her. “Looking for supplies. Have any wagons made it up here this week? Looking for flour, salt, molasses, and some other sundries.”

She nodded. “Three wagons came in day ‘fore yesterday. The store should be pretty full up. You want something to eat? I got turkey and trimmin’s, if’n you want.”

“Yes, please. I’m tired of eating Ramirez’s cooking. He…spices things up a little too much.”

“You didn’t say anything to him?” She asked with a smile.

Danny laughed. “He’s touchy enough already! I don’t want to get shot for insulting his food!”

“Comin’ right up. You know where the coffee pot is.”

He walked to the counter, grabbed a cup, and poured the black, hot coffee in, holding his hand around the cup to warm up. Danny sipped as he walked back to the bench, slipped in, and reviewed the list as he waited for the food. A couple of minutes later, Hazel deposited a steaming plate in front of him and added, “Sweet tater pie, if you have room.”

“Yes, ma’am. Always room for pie!” He shoved the list back in his vest and dug in as she brought the pie and refilled his coffee. Twenty minutes later, he sat back with a groan, Ate too much, but damn, that was good! I need to find out how she cooks turkeys. That one tasted a helluva lot better than ours ever does.

He walked over to the counter and lay a dollar on it. “Thankee, ma’am. Do you know if the store is open?”

Helen laughed. “Knowing old man Gebhard, he’s open and counting his money. If he ain’t, go round the back and bang on the door. He lives back there with Bessie.”

Danny smiled as he buttoned his coat. “I will, thanks.”

He led Blue down to the store and tied him there. “Not much longer, boy. Then we’ll get back to camp.” Blue neighed at him and shook his head. Danny laughed. “You callin’ me a liar, Blue?”

He heard a laugh and looked around to see Mr. Gebhard standing in the door. “Ach, you talk vit your hoss?”

“Yes, sir. And sometimes he talks back. Usually by either biting me, or kicking me, or bucking me off.” Danny smiled and added, “I have the supply list for the camp, if you’re open. I know it’s Christmas—”

Gebhard interrupted, “You make time to come. I vill open. But you no have vagon?”

“If you have the supplies, I can go get it, but we weren’t going to hitch it up unless there was a reason.”

“Goot, I have supplies. You give me list, go get vagon. I have ready by the time you return.”

Danny handed it over, saying, “I hope you can read Lewin’s chicken scratch. I’ll be back with the wagon as soon as I can.”

Gebhard laughed. “I figure out. You get vagon.” He stepped back in and closed the door, leaving Danny standing beside Blue. He sighed, mounted, and headed back to camp. A half hour later, he and Sergeant Lewin, along with Ramirez and Viktor on horseback, rode around to the back of the store. Gebhard was good to his word, and had the back doors open, the supplies stacked on the loading dock. Victor and Gebhard chatted in German while they loaded the wagon as Lewin checked off the items. Once the loading was completed, Lewin gave Gebhard a script for payment, and they drove the wagon back to camp as the snow started to fall.

Once back in camp, they helped unload the wagon into the supply tent, and Danny asked Victor, “Do you know Gebhard?”

Victor laughed. “He is mine uncle…once remove. He came from Head of Elm because he likes his beer.” Shaking his head, Victor continued, “Dey no allow beer ober there. Crazy. He did not want to compete with…Salt Creek, so he come down here.”

Ramirez commented, “Salt Creek is only busy during drives. Rest of the year, not so much, and cowboys always cause trouble. Last stop before Indian country.” Glancing at Danny, he asked, “Didn’t you go there if you’ve been over the trail?”

“No, we drove east from Fort Wichita and crossed just south of the Res, and met the herd on the flats a day north of the river.”

Ramirez grunted. “Uh, short drive, tired cows after the river. And tired cowboys. I hate that river crossing.”

***

By late March, five rangers had decided they didn’t want to be rangers anymore, and had left camp, taking Captain Carlson’s company down to twenty-three persons when they started the patrol cycle back up. Lieutenant Donovan had Danny and Ramirez out as scouts once again, and they rode longer patrols, going as far afield as the confluence of the north and south forks of the Wichita River. Twice they had tracked Indians back toward the territory, but couldn’t catch up to them either time, riding back into camp tired, disgusted, and hungry, since they usually ran out of food and didn’t have time to hunt.

Logan called Danny aside after another fruitless patrol in late April and said, “Captain and Lieutenant Donovan are watchin’ you. I think they’re gonna offer you corporal, since we’re so short o’ men. You think you could run a patrol on your own?”

Danny stopped currying Blue and just looked at Logan. “What?”

“You think you could run a patrol on your own?”

“I…sure, if I had to. But…”

Logan snorted. “Danny, you may be young, but you know how to track, you’re a damn good shot. The other men see you picking up things like helping Lewin and not complaining. You effectively led that raid where we got those injuns up on the Red last year. Your approach kept us from getting people…well, you got hurt, but we didn’t lose anybody, and recovered those horses.”

Danny looked around in confusion. “I’m…if I have to, can I pick who goes with me?”

“We’ll see.” Logan walked off, leaving Danny standing there until Blue nickered, and he resumed currying him without thinking about it.

May and June were frustrating, a few tracks, two homesteads burned, but the Indians were long gone before they ever got there. A trickle of new men had shown up, and the company was slowly getting back up to strength as the hot weather rolled in. Danny, Allen, Ramirez, and Victor had started sleeping outside to escape the heat, only going in the tent if it was raining, which wasn’t often.

Hunting was becoming a full day evolution, sometimes two days to find meat for the camp, and Danny was taking longer and longer shots on everything, including turkeys. Captain Carlson had made a deal with somebody, and they were getting a cow a week now, so there wasn’t as much pressure on him to hunt. Ramirez was teaching him how to braid a riata, and trying to teach him how to throw it, sometimes with hilarious results, like the time he inadvertently lassoed Logan when he released a little late. Logan had been…less than complimentary, to put it mildly, especially since it was done in front of Lieutenant Donovan and the rest of the squad.

In mid-July, Logan caught Danny early in the morning. “Boyle, the captain wants you to go out with Sergeant Roche. They are two people short, and we’re supposed to get three new rangers sometime this week.”

“What will I be doing?”

“I told him you’re my scout and hunter, but I don’t know where he will slot you.” Logan kicked at the dirt for a moment, then added, “I…would like your impression of his squad.”

Danny stopped and turned to him. “What?” Mustering up his courage, he said, “Is there something…wrong? I mean, we seem to get more inj…Indians than they do, and I know we’re getting more action.”

Logan spat off to the side. “Well, somebody said something to the lieutenant, and that got to the captain…”

Blowing out a breath, Danny replied, “I don’t like being a tattletale. And I only know two guys in that squad, Erickson and Zelenko, cause they’ve hunted with me a time or two.”

“Understood, but they need another man, and you’re the best I can offer. The lieutenant is out with third squad, so it’s gonna be somebody from my squad. No choice, Boyle.”

Danny grimaced. “Yes, Sergeant. When are they leaving?”

“Tomorrow morning.”

***

Three days later, Danny was biting his lip to keep from saying anything. They had covered less ground since they left than Logan’s squad did in a day and a half. Leaving late in the morning, halting early in campsites they had obviously used before. Danny had been relegated to riding in the column, ignored by Roche for the most part.

Zelenko had gotten him out on a hunt that morning, and Danny asked, “Are y’all always this…careful?”

Zelenko had wrinkled his lips and said, “Pretty much. Sarge don’t move fast, and we always foller the same trails when we search.” Danny shook his head, and Zelenko asked, “When you hunt, you hunt ahead or back?”

“Always back trail, usually at least a mile back from where we are on any trail. And I always try to hunt upwind.”

“I think we’ll prolly have ta go at least that far. We was huntin’ this area for…four months now.”

Danny winced. “Damn. Every patrol?”

“Ever one. Same for ever stop. Same camp, everthing.”

Danny wet his finger and tested the air, then pointed off to the west. “Wind is from there, let’s go see if we can find something.”

Two hours later, Zelenko finally got a big doe, and Danny popped a turkey that jumped up with Zelenko’s shot. By the time they got back to camp, it was almost dark, and Roche was waiting. “Where the hell you two been? Sleeping? It’s gonna be full dark afore anything gets cooked! Since you two been screwin’ off, you get to cook, too.” He stomped off to where he had made a bed with some freshly cut cedar bows, and sat glaring at them as they quickly dressed the doe and turkey, and got them broiling over the fire.

Danny had to pull some salt out of his saddlebag to give the meat a little taste and ended up dropping part of the turkey breast in the fire when the forked stick he was using caught fire and burned through. He was digging it out of the fire when Roche stomped over and snarled, “That’s your supper right there, Boyle.” He took the other half breast and went back to his little bower, flopped down and ate in silence as the rest of the squad ambled over to get some of the venison.

The next morning, Danny was told to ride up and let the scouts know it was time for a break. He’d just caught up with them when Erickson pulled up short, then dismounted, looking at something. He dismounted and walked up just as Zelenko said, “Those are fresh.” He turned to Danny. “What do you think?”

Danny walked down the back trail, off to the side, then back. Squatting, he fingered the tracks. “I make it eight ponies, probably no more than three hours old. They’re not ridin’ fast. Raiding party?” He shrugged as he looked up the trail. “Gonna be tight to follow them. Have to go single file.”

Erickson and Zelenko looked at each other and Zelenko said, “We’ll tell Roche, but he ain’t gonna let us foller them. Bet he’s gonna say we go the long way.”

Erickson grimaced and nodded. “Prolly. Or, ain’t no place to camp. Dammit.” He got up disgusted, threw a clod of dirt down, and walked back to his horse. “Y’all stay here, I’ll go get him.”

Roche rode up a few minutes later, didn’t even bother dismounting, and leaned over. He glanced at the tracks and said, “Nah, those are old tracks. And that trail winds back to connect with this one. We’ll stay on the trail and check to see if’n they come out where I think they will. Ten-minute break.” He glared at Danny. “Next time, you come back and get me. That’s your job, not the scouts!” He jerked his horse around and rode back down the trail, out of sight.

“What the hell?”

Zelenko shook his head. “He don’t like you, Danny. Not at all.”

“Hell, I ain’t ever done anything to him! I don’t know why he’s got his knickers in a twist.”

“Waller…is some kinda kin to him. That might be it.”

Dropping his head, Danny sighed. “Figures. Well, I just hope nothing happens the rest of the patrol, ‘cause I’d probably get blamed.”

Zelenko laughed. “Better you’n me. Only reason he likes me is I can hunt and I’m a good shot.”

Six days later, they rode back into camp without ever sighting anymore tracks, much to Danny’s disgust. He waved to Zelenko as he rode back to the corral, stripped Blue’s gear off, and curried him. Carrying his saddle and gear, he stumped toward his billet when Logan caught up to him, taking the saddle. “Well?”

Danny rolled his tongue around and said quietly, “That was the…one, one set of fresh tracks, and we never even followed them. Fixed camps, early stops, late starts, same exact trail for the umpteenth time, apparently.”

“Shit. I was afraid of that,” Logan whispered.

“I…don’t want to go out with them again, Sergeant. Ain’t the men’s fault. They…want to do the job. It’s just…”

Logan bit his lip. “Alright. I’ll figger somethin’ out.”

Talk about ‘tone deaf’!!!

On the anniversary of September 11, Pam Keith tweeted that January 6, 2021 had replaced September 11, 2001 as the “worst thing that happened to America in my lifetime” and that “it’s not even close.”

Actual quote-
On 1/6/2021, 9/11/2001 ceased being the worst thing that happened to America in my lifetime. It’s really weird and painful to process and say that. But it’s the truth. And quite frankly… it’s not even close.

Keith, a Democrat, ran against Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) in 2020 for his Congressional seat in the 18th district of Florida.

I…simply have no words…
And this one is…interesting… Apparently the Dems can’t even agree on the definition of ‘woman’… Snerk…
Full article, HERE from a Politico tweet, of all places.

Oh boy…

It’s about to get interesting down in Austin!

Retaliation. Witness tampering. Felony criminal conduct.

These charges are being aimed at the man Travis County, Texas, voters elected to prosecute criminals in November 2020. And the charges stem from one of José Garza’s highest-profile and most controversial cases.

Det. Fugitt’s direct accusations against Garza, which include new evidence and also implicate the two leaders of APD. 

This is all going down in relation to the Perry case, the Sgt that shot the protester that was pointing an AK47 at him.

We’re going to need more popcorn for this one! Just waiting for the Rangers to get called in… LOL

Twenty years… Never forgotten…

Today is the 20th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks on the United States by four sets of al-Queda hijackers…

These images were burned into our consciousness that day…

American Airlines Flight 11, and United Flight 175 hit the two towers at the WTC.

American Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.

And United Flight 93 (destined for Washington, DC) crashed in Shanksville, PA after fighting between the hijackers and the passengers, bringing the term “Let’s Roll.” into the lexicon.

I heard the term “defining moment” thrown around a lot, especially in the last years…

My recollection from that day-

On 9/11, I was in my office at the University when I got a call from one of the University pilots who is a retired Marine helo pilot; he told me to “get to a TV, somebody just hit New York with an airplane!”

I finally found one in a conference room upstairs and turned it on, as it happened it was on CNN…

Others started to wonder in to see why I was ‘violating’ University policy, and the pilot called me back, about that time.  I do remember something to the effect of “a terrible accident has occurred” being said on TV about the time the pilot saying this wasn’t an accident, it was an airliner and something bad was going down.

As we talked, the second airplane hit the second tower, and we agreed about the fact that America was under attack, but at that point we had no idea who had done it…  Anger was the prevalent feeling, and frustration, since there wasn’t anything we could directly do for those folks…

About a half an hour later, I was called into a meeting with law enforcement about securing/protecting facilities and infrastructure; we were interrupted by the announcement that the Pentagon had been hit, and the tone of the meeting changed from what if, to we need to prepare NOW!  I also remember driving back to my office and hearing about Shanksville and UA 93 during that time. We set our emergency response plan into effect, sending folks home and going into a 24 hour response cycle.

I stayed at work, coordinating with various folks, but I noticed a lot of my co-workers were in shock that anyone would attack America, much less why attack us…  I wasn’t shocked, I was PISSED…

The few of us that were ex-military tended to not say anything after the first couple of arguments, since we had a significantly different perspective. We knew the military had been placed on elevated alert, and folks were either airborne or sitting in cockpits on strip alert…

In the days that followed, I didn’t get a lot of sleep; watched a lot of coverage.  When the list of casualties came out, I found out I’d lost three good friends in the Pentagon, and I wrote to Navy Personnel volunteering for recall to active duty.  Sadly, I wasn’t recalled…

Why did I post these pictures?  Because they are REALITY… Not sugarcoated, apologized for, sanitized talking points, or spun by whomever.  We, the USA were attacked on our home soil by terrorists who are STILL determined to bring America to her knees, since we are the “Great Satan”…  20 years later, the terrorists are still after us, and the Taliban/al Queda are back in charge in Afghanistan…

Today, Biden and the other pols will horn in on the various memorials for the obligatory photo ops (well, apparently Biden will give a ‘video’ presentation). They won’t speak, and will keep those who actually DID THE WORK out of the memorials. Friend of mine who is a nurse and worked the pile for over 2 weeks at the Towers asked, and was told not to bother showing up, she wouldn’t be allowed in.

Where were you, and what was your response, and more importantly, what are your thoughts today???

Capt Larry Getzfred, USN; Capt Jack Punches, USN ret; AW1 Joe Pycior all died in the Navy Ops Center in the Pentagon. Never forget…

And steel from the Towers was used to build the bow of the USS NEW YORK (LPD-21).

She, and the USS ARLINGTON (LPD-24) and USS SOMERSET (LPD-25) were named for the other locations where the planes hit. All three ships are San Antonio Class  Amphibs.

Nailed it…

Victor Davis Hanson nails the California ‘experience’ in this article!

California once was run by conservatives and mostly centrist Democrats.

True paleo-liberal governors like Pat Brown greatly expanded the welfare state. But they also believed in pushing integration and building freeways, dams, aqueducts and power plants, while preventing forest fires, directing the mentally ill into state hospitals, and ensuring that the state enhanced the housing, timber, oil and gas, nuclear and agricultural industries.

Full article, HERE.

I know that I saw a lot of changes during the times I was stationed there in the early 70s, late 70s, and late 80s… And NONE of them were for the good (well, maybe cleaning up Haight Ashbury was good)…

But to see Larry Elder get attacked by a white woman in a gorilla mask, all of that caught on video, and yet that didn’t make ANY papers in California? Definitely shows which side the MSM is on out there, but we already knew that…

Hanson among many other leading lights including Thomas Sowell are members of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Frankly, I’m surprised the institution is still AT Stanford, considering how far left that school has gone!

Words have meaning…

Or do they???

Guess it depends on what day of the week, and who is saying what…

The CDC has apparently changed the @#@$%@% definitions of vaccine and vaccination!!!!

The old-

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

The new-

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

I’m old, and I can’t keep up with all these definition changes… Hell, what am I supposed to think and say??? Oh yeah, I’m supposed to ‘wait’ until I get the direction from teh partay, aren’t I???

Interesting comparison…

Long day yesterday helping a friend, got back late, so no time to research anything…

But this is rather a interesting comparison of the Periodic table before and after Neils Bohr.

Bohr calculated the atomic weights of the various elements.

Nine words…

Women use and the ‘real’ meaning…
(1) Fine : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. This means your facts may be right but you are still wrong.
(2) Five Minutes : If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
(3) Nothing : This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
(4) Go Ahead : This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!
(5) Loud Sigh : This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
(6) That’s Okay : This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
(7) Thanks : A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’.. That will bring on a ‘whatever’).
(8) Whatever : Is a woman’s way of saying…Go to Hell…
(9) Don’t worry about it, I got it : Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ (For the woman’s response refer to # 3).

An open letter…

For your perusal… I know five of the admirals that signed this, including two that I worked with or for in the P-3 community…

Open Letter from Retired Generals and Admirals

 Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty. 

During the 2020 election an “Open Letter from Senior Military Leaders” was signed by 317 retired Generals and Admirals and, it said the 2020 election could be the most important election since our country was founded. “With the Democrat Party welcoming Socialists and Marxists, our historic way of life is at stake.” Unfortunately, that statement’s truth was quickly revealed, beginning with the election process itself. 

Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the “will of the people” our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc. Today, many are calling such commonsense controls “racist” in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the “Rule of Law” must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity. The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020. Finally, H.R.1 & S.1, (if passed), would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic. 

Aside from the election, the Current Administration has launched a full-blown assault on our Constitutional rights in a dictatorial manner, bypassing the Congress, with more than 50 Executive Orders quickly signed, many reversing the previous Administration’s effective policies and regulations. Moreover, population control actions such as excessive lockdowns, school and business closures, and most alarming, censorship of written and verbal expression are all direct assaults on our fundamental Rights. We must support and hold accountable politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism, support our Constitutional Republic, and insist on fiscally responsible governing while focusing on all Americans, especially the middle class, not special interest or extremist groups which are used to divide us into warring factions. 

Additional National Security Issues and Actions: 

• Open borders jeopardize national security by increasing human trafficking, drug cartels, terrorists entry, health/CV19 dangers, and humanitarian crises. Illegals are flooding our Country bringing high economic costs, crime, lowering wages, and illegal voting in some states. We must reestablish border controls and continue building the wall while supporting our dedicated border control personnel. Sovereign nations must have controlled borders. 

• China is the greatest external threat to America. Establishing cooperative relations with the Chinese Communist Party emboldens them to continue progress toward world domination, militarily, economically, politically and technologically. We must impose more sanctions and restrictions to impede their world domination goal and protect America’s interests. 

• The free flow of information is critical to the security of our Republic, as illustrated by freedom of speech and the press being in the 1st Amendment of our Constitution. Censoring speech and expression, distorting speech, spreading disinformation by government officials, private entities, and the media is a method to suppress the free flow of information, a tyrannical technique used in closed societies. We must counter this on all fronts beginning with removing Section 230 protection from big tech. 

• Re-engaging in the flawed Iran Nuclear Deal would result in Iran acquiring nuclear weapons along with the means to deliver them, thereby upsetting Mideast peace initiatives and aiding a terrorist nation whose slogans and goals include “death to America” and “death to Israel” . We must resist the new China/Iran agreement and not support the Iran Nuclear Deal. In addition, continue with the Mideast peace initiatives, the “Abraham Accords,” and support for Israel. 

• Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us, while eliminating valuable US jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons. 

• Using the U.S. military as political pawns with thousands of troops deployed around the U.S. Capitol Building, patrolling fences guarding against a non-existent threat, along with forcing Politically Correct policies like the divisive critical race theory into the military at the expense of the War Fighting Mission, seriously degrades readiness to fight and win our Nation’s wars, creating a major national security issue. We must support our Military and Vets; focus on war fighting, eliminate the corrosive infusion of Political Correctness into our military which damages morale and war fighting cohesion. 

• The “Rule of Law” is fundamental to our Republic and security. Anarchy as seen in certain cities cannot be tolerated. We must support our law enforcement personnel and insist that DAs, our courts, and the DOJ enforce the law equally, fairly, and consistently toward all. 

• The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored. He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night. Recent Democrat leadership’s inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge. We must always have an unquestionable chain of command. 

Under a Democrat Congress and the Current Administration, our Country has taken a hard left turn toward Socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government which must be countered now by electing congressional and presidential candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic. The survival of our Nation and its cherished freedoms, liberty, and historic values are at stake. 

We urge all citizens to get involved now at the local, state and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable. The “will of the people” must be heard and followed.
