Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, breaking months of public silence on President Trump since resigning in protest in December 2018, on Wednesday offered a withering critique of the president’s leadership amid growing protests across the country. “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try,” Mr. Mattis wrote

Some assumptions...I assume Mattis knows that President Trump was being spied on before the election, I assume he knows Obama was behind it, I assume he knows there was a Coup attempted after the President was sworn in, I assume he knows that their was an impeachment over madeup charges, I assume he knows the Democrats put sick Wuhan Virus people in the nursing homes, a finally I assume he knows the riots are backed by the Democrat Party...therefore to say President Trump is a divider is not only a lie but shows Mattis to be a a useful, military idiot

What a disappointment. Mattis of all people should know the difference between tactics and strategy, but then again he may be preparing the battle space in his own seditious way.

Mattis is very disappointing. He reminds me of McClelland, during the Civil War, who was more concerned with politics than winning battles. Very popular in some circles, but unfaithful, and eventually forgotten

Why bring shame on yourself like this General? Mattis is acting more like MacArthur. He and the President had a disagreement and he was basically fired. Now this. Proving once again that Trump was right.

He got fired,and now he has gone full angry and taking shots at the President. He got his little Feewings hurt. He was a GENERAL and expected the President to jump when he spoke like he expected his troops to jump. A man with a brilliant career loved by his troops and an ego that is making him stupid.

I think when Trump gets rid of these people he must make them bend over by the door of his office and he physically kicks them out. How else to explain all the vindictiveness of ex team members?

The Swamp prosecutors of the Southern District of New York took control of the Epstein case, which means the Dems have the Epstein evidence to handle anyone who gets out of line. (Recall that Comey's daughter is an attorney on that team). Beginning to think there were a lot of high end brass and elites who are being controlled. Maybe Mattis is one of them. It does not make sense that someone with such a military background would not understand the need for law and order as a prerequisite for helping the communities of all the people involved. The idea that America has to assume the guilt for media-publicized events and accept total guilt by association is one that people like Mattis are trained to deal with, yet there he is, ignoring all the effort of the president to both acknowledge the tragedy of Minneapolis while trying hard to establish law and order that is so needed in order to even continue having a nation of laws. I don't get it unless I'm right about so many elites who will do or say just about anything to avoid having their backgrounds exposed.

We are now entering the political funny season in a presidential election year. Remember President Trump was elected to face down the known to be corrupt DC “System” that consists of both civilian and military politicians. So it is not surprising that politicians aligned with the “System” are now coming out of the woodwork to pile on Trump. One of the reasons that Trump was elected was to pull US troops out of the never ending Middle East wars. Once Trump started doing that, the fall out between him and James Mattis started, obviously Mattis, a military politician of high retired rank, did not like Trump’s proposal to return those troops to the USA in a move that would certainly be detrimental to the career aspirations of certain high ranking military politicians. So here comes Mattis, a man of the “System” not making helpful but distracting comments as Trump is trying to deal with the Chinese COVID-19 virus and the rioting. That’s the way the “System” works.

This has to be the most reprehensible and irresponsible action of any General in my lifetime. I cannot believe anyone would do this especially in a time of crisis. I recognize that there are individuals who do not like this President and want to see him defeated in November. However, to knowingly attack the President when the country is on the brink of civil war is unconscionable. The Deep Stare is throwing everything plus the kitchen sink at this President because they are being exposed as seditionists. I cannot believe what this man has had to endure since he indicated his intention to run for office. It would have broken most men and yet, President Trump lives to fight another day. God bless him for it! Sometimes I wonder if I were in his shoes, I would be questioning if it was worth it, yet he charges on with a purpose and courage that can only be explained by a sincere love for this country and the determination to keep his promises to the American people. I would think that military men of honor would not add to The President’s burden when the Republic is being tested as it has not been since The Civil War. Love of country would prohibit such an irresponsible action. Mattis is pulling the few threads that are holding us together and it is an act that scurrilous and petty. I don’t know about anyone else, but each time these swamp creatures reveal their complete lack of character with a stunt like this, it just makes me want to support the President more. Now more than ever, Trump 2020 and every “R” down ballot. Another thing that I question is the timing of this. Mattis’ action is very chilling because now I can’t help but think that this unrest is actually a full blown insurrection underway moving toward a military coup and Mattis has set himself up as the leader of the opposition. Surely the demented democrats are not that insane. However, with Obama popping up to offer his wisdom for a solution, could this all just be a part of their evil plan to wrest control of this country by any means possible to reinstate their light bringer Obama? Nah, now that is just crazy thinking.

Mattis has exposed himself to be a swamp creature. It appears that the number of lifelong federal payroll recipients that seem to devolve into that category is larger than normal people ever imagined. Somehow, we have a President that remains committed to defeating them.

For a guy who supposedly reads a lot of history he doesn't seem aware of way Lincoln handled the 1863 Draft riots by sending in the Army of the Potomac into New York to save black lives and protect property. Mattis has the "Generals Syndrome"-- for years he has been surrounded by horse holders who agree with everything he says--John Kelly immediately comes to mind. After a while they start to think every thing they say is important.

By uniting, Mattis means that we should give in to everything the Democrats want. Sorry, Mr Mattis (not going to refer to you as General anymore. You don't deserve that title) that is not how politics works. We are beyond the point of compromise. One side will have to win with the total destruction of the other if this country survives.

I want to know who recommended Mattis (and so many others of the original cabinet) to Trump. So many swamp creatures and deep staters got way too close to Trump before he figured them out. I pray for a second term for Trump -- he needs it just to make a dent in the deep state.

As I recall, Mattis and McMaster were among recommendations made to new President Trump by Condi Rice. We know how they turned out. McMaster, a master leaker, brought in the fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella (from the CIA). Mattis turned out to be a little martinet who wanted to override his CIC. At least McMaster has not badmouthed. Or did I miss something?

I wish someone could get this to Mattis. Gen Mattis, you've had three sayings attributed to you that we should consider when dealing with the rioters who are hellbent on destruction. I've removed the worst of the profanities. "The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some aholes in the world that just need to be shot." "I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you eff with me, I’ll kill you all." "Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact." All three of these sayings are appropriate when trying to stop antifa from destroying our great country. I wish you could remember that.

Truth can have nothing to do with lies. Righteousness nothing to do with evil. A just leader of our nation can't practice syncretism with those seeking to destroy the Supreme Law of the Land, our Constitution. "Because a snake bites a man does not make the man bad." Charles Spurgeon I never agreed with the appointment of a Marine to run anything so complex as the Defense Department, simply because the Marine Corps budget is 1/4th that of the Navy or Air Force. So now, General, go pound Iwo Jima sand. You dishonor the memory of my WWII Marine FIL.

First off, I was never a great fan of Mattis. Like Generals Allen and McCrystal and many others, they came up when political correctness was the most important thing, and after large numbers of genuine war fighters had been run out of the military at the Colonel level. Mattis forgets that Eisenhower used military troops to forcibly integrate schools. I am tired of Mattis. It seems like military men rarely make good political leaders. After much reflection on that, they have a serious problem in that they have never been forced to really compromise and do what "the people" want done. Military leaders make choices and orders are followed, they expect to be obeyed. Not a good background for civilian leadership. Eisenhower was somewhat of an exception....but he did fall back on the paratroopers when he had to get something done, didn't he?

If I were President Trump I would come out and tell the country that I agree with my military advisors to not use active duty federal troops in the current rioting situation, thus allowing the leftist and liberal Democrat politicians running those inner cities where the rioting and looting is taking place to stew in their own anti-law enforcement politicized juices, start giving speeches like he delivered last Saturday, and move on with a law and order and Make America Great Again re-election campaign.

When Michael Gutschenritter started Three Brothers Farm in Oconomowoc in 2013, he started small.

Last month, he doubled the number of laying hens on the farm, where they’re now producing about 2,500 eggs per day. Then in a matter of days, as restaurants shifted their business models due to the coronavirus pandemic, so did Gutschenritter.

But after a second day of marathon closed-door negotiations, there was no sign of an overarching deal between negotiators, despite Republicans’ claims of bipartisan agreement on specific issues including unemployment insurance and small business assistance. “The past two days of intense bipartisan talks are very close to a resolution,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who intends to hold a vote to pass the sprawling package on Monday.

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

Biden Thursday evening said most Americans believe the country needs to get better, arguing “10 to 15 percent” of people “are just not very good.” Mr. Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, argued the president is vital in setting the standard for the rest of the country during a virtual town hall event on “The Shade Room” hosted by actor Don Cheadle. “Do we really think that this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” he said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent

Former President Barack Obama, in a virtual town hall hosted by his foundation Wednesday, called on demonstrators to channel their anger over George Floyd's death into an opportunity to make leaders "uncomfortable" and pressure them into making real policy changes.The town hall was hosted by the Obama Foundation's My Brother's Keeper Alliance, which supports young men of color. During the event, Obama said he rejected a debate that emerged in “a little bit of chatter on the internet" about “voting versus protests, politics and participation versus civil disobedience and direct action.”“This is not an either-or. This is a both,” he said. “And to bring about real change,

Mr. President, you’ve taken step one: Declaring Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. That was a brilliant move. Now it’s time for step number two: Cut the head off the snake. We’ve got to move to aggressively cut off the funding of domestic terrorism. Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation. And indictments and a trial.

Amid nationwide protests ignited by the police-involved killing of George Floyd early last week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that up to $150 million will be cut from the L.A.

The United States has been rocked by widespread protests demanding justice and social reforms since Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died May 25 after being pinned to the ground by the knee of a white police officer against his neck. Garcetti called Floyd’s death during a Wednesday evening press briefing “a modern-day lynching” and the

A widely read study claiming the use of the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus leads to an increased risk of death has been retracted, the study’s publisher said Thursday. The Lancet, the medical journal that published the original study in late May, said in a statement that they “can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources,” and “due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.” “We all entered this collaboration to contribute in good faith and at a time of great need during the COVID-19 pandemic,” they said. “We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has no choice but to move the 2020 Republican National Convention from Charlotte after North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper advised the Republican Party that it would need to plan for a “scaled-down” convention to protect the health of its participants. RNC officials are now considering moving the convention to a venue in Nashville, Las Vegas, Orlando, Jacksonville or one of multiple locations in Georgia, according to CNN. Multiple health experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation that it would be foolish for the party to commit to bringing 19,000 dignitaries together in an enclosed arena anywhere in the country,
